Because you, Miss Kirby, have shared and contributed to each occasion we dedicate our Knoll to you. We dedicate it humbly because our debt for your service, your interest, and your counsel cannot be repaid by mere words. We dedicate it proudly, too, because we hope that this goal attained is worthy of your constant faith in us. We dedicate it gladly as a tangible tribute to repre- sent the gratitude and appreciation we would offer to you. S sm l9 c ' 1 United Nations and Lowell State Teachers College PROLOGUE ' These are the times that try men ' s souls. ' ' How applicable is this quotation to our present civili- zation. We have passed through a great crisis of war only to be plunged into the despair of chaos, discontent and disorder. And yet, even the blackest hour exudes a vibrant hope for peace and co- operation through brotherhood in our world. The embryo, which we earnestly believe will develop into a guarantee of security for all man- kind, is the United Nations. It is with a humble awareness of the significance of our profession that we parallel our training, our aims, and motives with the organ- ization of that great international machinery for peace. To para- phrase the pledge of the U.N. we too, in our office as teachers guid- ing a nation ' s youth, will join our effort in the maintenance of inter- national brotherhood, in the foun- dation for solution of economic, social and cultural problems, and to promote human rights for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion. 9CM VOTI IMTERNMT10HAL W COURTS Msmt Pres id«nt , D at% GENERAL ASSEMBLY :ouc School a 4 Society 9©E1 ECONOMIC AW SOCIAL COUNCIL foevLLoi l W School THE SECRETARIAT Facult ■ ' COURT OF JUSTICE President and Dean This court is represented in our college by the council of our president and dean who settle questions concerning the administration and student body, and give advisory opinions to the other functioning boards. President Another class draws near the close of its college days at Lowell Teachers College and I am happy to extend congratulations and good wishes to the class of 1948 for the excellent record you have made for yourselves while with us. The fate of civilization rests upon the work of the teacher and it has been the aim of your college to inspire you with those ideals of life which the world in which we live today so sorely needs. The need for good teachers has never been greater than it is today and there has never been a time when the work of the good teacher was more deeply recognized and appreciated. It is our hope that you will continue to prepare yourselves to help solve successfully the troublous problem which exists in our world today and I wish you all success and happiness in the years to come. James Dug an President You have lived for four years in a world of inspiration while a new world is in the making. You are about to leave us and take your place as a worker in the Institution of Society that is known as Edu- cation. The varied opportunities you have experienced during your col- lege life are merely the first step in the building of a teaching career. You are leaving your college with an unusual sense of security because the communities in the Commonwealth are waiting for you. You will be welcomed as a valued person in those communities. You will be charged with great responsibilities. You must display courage. We feel you are ready to accept this challenge.

Ik 4 » 7 » Senior Music Majors In our four years as music students at Lowell Teachers College, we have had a varied and extensive course of studies, in music and elementary sub- jects. Our music subjects included basic theory, harmony, orchestration, coun- terpoint, music methods, music ap- preciation, voice class, conducting, while the elementary subjects carried on were psychology, history, govern- ment, art appreciation, and aesthetics. Our training period has been exclu- sively music from the primary grades through senior high school. We have had elementary training with the children in the practice schools for eight weeks. Music is a great bond in laying a foundation to unite all people. It reaches every corner of the world. We as future teachers go forth to contrib- ute towards world peace and security through music.

Lorene Wilson Music Editor Diane Kludjian Sports Editor Jane Dorgan To compile the reports of the secur- ity council, organizations and boards of the Lowell Teachers College was the task allotted to a group of seniors, for- mally known as the " Knoll Staff. " Throughout the school year, 1947- 1948, its members, under the capable direction of the editor and the assist- ant editor, set about to compile this information that you find between the covers of the yearbook. In this book, the staff has attempted to perpetuate an eventful career through the medium of an accurate, interesting, and colorfully illustrated vearbook. 34] Remember When Terry Ahearn sprayed Russells with Frolic? ...

It was a matter of minutes before this class altered its original opinion and, in- fluenced by the persuasive tactics of indi- viduals identified as " big sisters, " they barked through initiation with humble obeisance. They could forgive the " Mam- my Yokum " attire, the corncob pipes and dog biscuits, but it took a brave Freshman by the end of the week to tie that fragrant turnip around her waist. Shall we say simply that during initiation the Freshmen outdid the vinegar works. But on to nobler achievements in the academic field. There were those " stu- dents " who waded through Return of the Native, waiting patiently for the safari to appear. Others with ample guidance created such masterpieces as Duffy ' s Tav- ern and Dorgans Farm. And all received as basic equipment a gigantic volume, known affectionately as " Barnes, " which contained a history of the world, blow by blow, it would seem by its size. Early in their career Miss Kirby very graciously consented to be guardian and defender of the Class of 1948, and enter- tained each section at a tea. This event inspired a contest to see who would con- sume the most food, and everybody won ! Thus they encompassed the year ' s span, laughing while learning, buying war bonds and stamps, singing ... " of the people, by the people " . . ., spending cold, rainy days for pleasure at Hampton, attending every rally, sport or party with the vocif- erous animation of Freshmen. Then one September morning they awoke to find themselves members of a Sophomore class. This year the seed was sown for future financial enterprises when the " sopho- more agents " rumbaed into the Assem- bly Hall to sell seals. This class, as all Sophomores, was ex- posed to the enigmas of XL S. History and Government, to " Sumer Is Icumen In, " to " the child as a whole, " to " Jump Jim Crow " and ' The Camels " ... and sur- vived. The Christmas party, the hayride, the theatre party to Oklahoma constituted their ex- clusive activities, but the big-sister parties, col- lege dances and programs were essential items on their calendar. February found them sponsoring a Valentine formal with never-to-be-forgotten decorations. Remember that plaster-of- Paris cupid that would not hang? Variety was the spice of the Sophomores ' existence so they entertained the Seniors at a picnic in the New Hampshire " wilds. " To re- turn the invitation those inimitable big sisters presented a super-colossal circus to which every one went in " Kiddie Kostumes. " The " fat lady " was the hit of the evening! Not a girl in that class will ever forget the Sophomores ' Club Snafu, night club deluxe, entertainment superb, adjectives galore. The whole college was astounded at the revealed talent that had been so long latent. Since then many people have suggested that the " Club " be opened again some day. Confidentially it could not — the Sophomores ' license was re- voked for selling coke to minors. Hampton, 1946, presented a mathematical problem. How can so few beds be divided among so many people? Only the Sophomores knew the answer. Certainly not Henry! Through th e enjoyment of college life and pleasures, the girls were ever aware of existing world conditions. V-E Day brought a subdued joy, a religious gratitude, a partial relief. When in .June the seniors graduated into a society where teaching was rapidly assuming a more vital importance, each Sophomore became aware, as if suddenly, of I he significance of her chosen profession. The price of becoming Juniors was the loss of some of their dearest friends, the wonderful big sisters. To assuage the pain, the Juniors were " given " a class of seventy-five Freshmen to adopt. Promptly the upperelassmen turned at their innocent heads with an initiation which was designed to revenge I he indignities suffered in U)44. As a result, the Juniors welcomed into the fold another wonderful class, as little sisters and brothers, and as first-rate good sports. Junior year suggests one outstanding word: Methods! This class managed to vary the diel with a few extra-curricular activities. The most exciting was the long-awaited Jun- ior Prom held at the Copley Plaza. Just for the Juniors il managed to rain a little, snow a little and fog a little, but they chose to ignore weath- er conditions and just go on having a stupen- 1% iilUA » dous time. By the way, did anyone have a ride on the Merry-Go-Round ? This year at North Conway the Juniors cut bangs and made eyes at the " Ski " in- structor. Everyone wanted to learn how- to ski ! January brought a big moment for Sec- tion III and III-M, the challenge and un- certainty of practice school. At last the actual experience of being a real teacher was here. Section IV was kept busy with a sensa- tional production number for Amateur Antics. The cast consisted of one teacher, ten boys, eight girls and two others. Then, too, they played host to the " Teachers " at a spaghetti feed. Finally this year the Juniors managed to locate a villa at Hampton which could house them in the manner to which they were accustomed, thanks to Mrs. Haley. There were beds a-plenty, a fireplace and a cute kitchen table that sat four people — so they ate in shifts ! To complete their social activities they hung their fatigue hats on the mahogany rack and invited the fire department to call. A good time was had by all. June brought the " fever, " grass on the Knoll, umbrellas and streamers, hot dogs, and Class Day. With efficient bustle the Juniors, in a few short hours, collected chairs, food, and kindling wood, shooed the neighborhood children away from decorations, tied up the favors, rhymed the verses, devised a few idiotic but enter- taining games, and, on the side composed, learned and presented a choice selection of songs. For them it was easy! (Seniors) " ... The saddest day I have to tell was when I bade my school farewell. No sooner had the Seniors inherited the coveted " Lounge, " with the radio and the cards, than they were being measured for their caps and gowns. Investiture brought full realization that college days were passing swiftly by and that Graduation was not such a distant star on the dim horizon. The Seniors, under the auspices of the Knoll, presented Monte Carlo and em- barked on the first of their numerous schemes to take money from the rest of the student body. Determined to set the vogues, this in- genious class sponsored a dance at their " ski lodge " in winter sports clothes, with square dancing and the usual, complete with snow and Santa Claus props. To return a gala party given by the little sisters at their own night club the Seniors brought the Mardi Gras to the Assembly Hall. Perhaps the guests did get a little hungry waiting for the food to arrive! Conversation trends in the lounge ran to, " I don ' t think it looks like me. Do you think he can fix my hair? I ' d like to have that blouse closed and a turtle neck inserted. My proof is turning black. " Poor Mr. McKeen and the vanity of women. Section VI journeyed from oblivion and practice school to the Igloo where the Section III Eskimos gave them a party. The Class of 1948 claims now the dubious distinc- tion of being: the only class with yellow romper suits, the last class whose indescribable art was em- blazoned on the college blackboards, the only class, alas, with not a mere man, with three married women and four well on the way, with the knowledge of how to treat snakebite, and with the greatest number of composers, (that ' s you, Section IV) and of course, the bridge champions of the college. ? I i.J Sfc a J unior ci ass The Junior Class is not the largest class in the college but it is one of the most active groups of " delegates. " A part of the Class of 1949 has already experienced the training per- iod of our college. This is a prescribed part of their college education. The other half of the class of 1949 will soon go through this phase of their college life and will be equipped with the knowledges and understandings a sen- ior representative should have. The Junior class has made evident the qualities they possess. They have proven this in a great many ways. We, as seniors, have no fears, no hesitations, as you the Juniors become members of the Senior Class. We are assured that the responsibilities that go with seniority will be adequately met and accepted by you. Your en- thusiasm, your genuine interest and competence, have won our respect. As you take your place as a senior representative, we place the torch of knowledge in your hands. We can only say, " Hold it high that all may see and follow. " [44 Soph omore ci ass The Class of 1950 has made many important contributions to the busi- ness of the Assembly. The talent and originality of ideas that the Sopho- mores have displayed throughout their college careers have made their class a necessary and vital cog in the wheels of education. Our Little Sisters and Brothers have met every issue put before them in a capable and thorough manner. Their " big sister " parties will long be remembered by every senior and their prize-winning performances will go down in the history of L.T.C. as out- standing. Little Sisters and Brothers, we have been fortunate indeed to have such fine delegates attend our college. We can never forget what you have done here. Our Sister class will always be close to us and as years go bv it is your friendship that will bring back pleas- ant memories of L.T.C.  Freshman C I ass September 15, 1947, the upperclass- men welcomed the new " delegates " to the Assembly for the first time. We remember and they can never forget the initiation given them by their big sisters. While perhaps they did not know it, they were undergoing a test of endurance and to the delight of all who watched, every freshman emerged with flying colors. Now they were ready and willing to be active in the affairs of the Assembly. Before long, the freshman class showed in many ways that they were capable of assuming the burdens and problems that must rest on the shoul- ders of all loyal representatives. This first year at college has meant much to every freshman for during this short time, friendships have sprung up that will endure throughout her college career and perhaps even longer. We, as seniors, would like to wish the youngest " delegates " of this our college, the very best of luck and suc- cess always. It has been said that there is strength in numbers. The freshman class has the largest representation in the Assembly. Use this power wisely and well, Freshmen. Be united in all that you do. Such a spirit always leads to success. [46 IT ' ;. ' To Our Little Sisters Since we ' ve known you, sisters dear You ' ve shared our life in college years. All the fun at parties too Recalling now those days so few! Remembering each and every one Our sister class, the thing ' s we ' ve done You ' ve shown to us a spirit bright And left within a shining light! And though we leave our school and you We think of friends in fond adieu But in our hearts will always be A place for yon, who hold the key. IIiolen V. Collins SECURITY COUNCIL Student Officers This council includes S.S. League, A. A. Hoard, Campus Star, Lecture Fund and Library Staff, and it represents the active adminis- tration of the affairs of the college. The policies, programs, resolutions, and the maintenance of harmony and co-operation are considered and handled by the representatives for the best interests of the college. School and Society League Council The basic aim of the activities of the Student Council is the furtherance of democratic principles. Every student at the college is a member of the School and Society League. The executive council is com- posed of officers elected from the en- tire student body, including represent- atives from each class, the Athletic Association and Music Department. This executive council plans the social program of the college. The Music representative has charge of the various musical programs presented during chapel services and the social chairman prepares for teas and other social events during the college year. At council meetings, original ideas of the students find expression and student problems come to light and find a satisfactory solution with the guidance of our dean and advisor, Miss Marguerite Gourville. A, A. Executive Board The A. A. plays an important role in our college life. Every student is a member. The A. A. Board is elected annually from the student body and by the students themselves. This Board directs the recreational activi- ties of the College. Its members super- vise all activities — field hockey, ten- nis, archery, basketball, badminton, horseback riding, tenniquoit and soft- ball. Army and Navy Day in hockey and basketball are anticipated by every student. Two teams are chosen to meet in competition and everyone is assured an exciting game. The A. A. Board plans Alumnae Day when former students are invited to compete with present students in sports. This organization also spon- sors parties, dances, and sports night. The climax of all athletic perform- ances is a formal banquet in May. Awards are presented at this time. The A. A. is under the capable guid- ance of Miss Elizabeth Neilson, fac- ulty advisor. Library and Lecture Fund LIBRARY The library at Lowell Teachers College has made tremendous strides since the services of a full-time librarian have been obtained. Miss Irene MacDonald came to us in the fall of 1946 from Pennsylvania State Library at Harrisburg where she was principal catalogist. Last year a system was organized whereby students were elected to assist Miss MacDonald. One student was elected from each class to assist in this work. Representing the freshman class is Bar- bara Walsh; the sophomore class, Barbara Hayes; the junior class, Lena Leiter; and the senior class, Mary Pater. There are many duties in library work, such as filing, typing and cataloguing. One of the important duties of the Class Librarian is to see that borrowed books are returned on their due date. With such cooperation from the student body, guided by Miss MacDonald, the library will continue to be timely and in- clusive in its acquisition of printed matter. LECTURE A variety of programs is planned, one a week throughout the year, to provide educational, cultural and recreational activity for the students. These programs have included stimu- lating lectures of current interest, musical presentations, dramatists and monolog- ists, square dancing, and films. Each fall an appropriation is taken from the blanket fee to finance these pro- grams. A committee of five students, composed of the traffic chairman and a representative from each class, meet to organize the year ' s agenda. The " lecture " hour on Wednesday proves to be one of the highlights of the school week for both students and faculty. Campus Star Staff The year nineteen forty-eight has marked the second year of the publi- cation of our school newspaper, the Campus Star. Under the supervision of Miss Kane the staff covers social and athletic activities at L.T.C. Educational arti- cles of interest to the student body are found in the Campus Star. In a lighter vein is the Big Dipper, the Star ' s gossip column. Of interest to our style-conscious co-eds are the inclusive fashion notes with cartoons ably portraying the " new-look. " Though still in its infancy the Cam- pus Star is striving for further devel- opment and growth in each issue. We wish to extend our sincere thanks to the staff and Miss Kane for the time and the effort they give in order to make this enjoyable reading possible for the student body. ECONOMIC and SOCIAL COUNCIL Training School This council co-ordinates the activities of specialized training agencies; elementary and music, arts, sciences, recreation, democratic principles, and through the assimilation of each into classroom organ- ization promotes the welfare of mankind, through youth. The Economic and Social Council, co-or- dinating the activities of various agencies, acts as teacher training in integrating prac- tical experience with theory. Here the pro- spective teacher is concerned with the whole child and the development of self-realization, human relationships, economic efficiency, and civic responsibility. The self-realization of the child manifests itself through awareness of others as individ- uals, selection of ideals and standards, and using this information to organize his childish living towards the goals of leadership in adult- hood. Basic needs of the child are fulfilled through active and passive participation in the class- room and the understanding that despite sur- face differences, their basic qualities are alike. Regardless of individual ability, every child should strive to develop a worth-while occupation and a sense of values to mold this living towards economic efficiency. Civic responsibility provides for the child to become an integrative part of his society.  Faculty Directory Herman H. Brase, 58 Holbrook Ave., Lowell James Dugan, 32 Blake St., Cambridge Charles O.
