There is not a single person in our class but has been made constantly to feel that in you she had an accessible friend and advisor whose interest in her highest welfare was deep and vital. We thank you for your care and for the interest you have taken in our happiness. May you ever be able to look with feelings of heartfelt satisfaction upon our results achieved through your efforts for our advancement, and we hope that your memory of us may be as pleasant as ours shall be of you. In our grateful appreciation, we dedicate the Knoll of 1949 to you, Miss O ' Rourke. O ?3 MARY A. O ' ROURKE Gold in California in eighteen-forty-nine! Gold! Men in all walks of life packed up their worldly goods. They hustled to California by sea and overland routes; The various hazardous ways were a trial to man and beast. A memorable journey, that, a challenging one ' twas agreed And the parties who entered therein were altered in word and in deed. On the one hundredth anniversary of the daring trek to the West Let us look back on our four-year trek, seeking that we, as they, May be justly proud of deeds along the way. We have reached the end of our journey through college life, Having covered all types of terrain, met obstacles great and small As we steadfastly looked to our goal and developed in knowledge and view. These years spent in challenging clime have molded us in heart and mind, Have helped us find confidence to guide learners toward worthy goals. S ADMINISTRATION VIGILANCE COMMITTEE Many personalities gathered together for any length of time require leadership and guidance in the part they must play toward the social betterment of all. Just as a college needs adequate administration to make it an effective uni- fied whole, so in its initial days did the city of San Francisco, hub of gold-rush activities, require a strong administration to prevent it from disintegration. The abnormal growth of population caused disorder and unrestraint to mount, and a lack of laws resulted in the need for socially-responsible citizens to take matters into their own hands by organizing the Vigilantes, who, although not legally delegated to do so, administered justice in a suita ble manner. Popular approval of their functions made this committee more effective; and in due time, having accomplished what they had intended, they dissolved. Guided by this precedent, this city, undo ' legal authority, became a marvel along industrial and social lines. Our college needs no Vigilance Committee, for the re- sponsibility of democratic administration lies in the hands of our competent President, Dean and faculty, and Student Council. The students of the college work for what is best for all, lending their cooperative support to the undertakings of the school. Just as the city of San Francisco advanced through cooperation and public spirit, so has our college made ad- mirable gains through the unified action of the Student Council under duly appointed administrative officers. President s Message The Class of 1949 has made a very important place for itself in the history of our college and I am happy to extend congratulations and my very best wishes to you as you approach the close of your career at Lowell Teachers College. As teachers, you will share the responsibilities of the home and the church in training the citizens of tomorrow. May you always remain loyal in your work to the traditions and achievements of our great predecessors, the men and women who throughout the years have in- spired their pupils with a deep and abiding belief in God, and in the necessity for morality, high thinking and service to the community, the state and the nation. May success and happiness be yours in the years to come. James Dugan, President D can s M essage You and I have been studying together this last semester of your under- gr aduate years some of the problems facing man in his relationship to man. We have read and talked about the inevitability of change; of cultural lag due to change; of the Fair Employment Practice Commission; of social welfare problems; of adopt- ing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: and of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. These and many other matters are but samples of the un- precedented progress made in human relationships. As teachers, you are charged with the responsibility of seeing that education also makes a greater contribution to the improvement of living. And as teachers you must help to build, with the community into which you are going, those sound rela- tions which make social action possible. Marguerite Gourville, Demi OUR FACULTY A TRIBUTE TO FLORENCE A. KIRBY In the fall of 1948, Miss Kirby re- tired from Lowell Teachers College as Professor of English and Speech. It was in 1926 when Miss Kirby first came to Lowell Teachers College. Previous to this time she had been a teacher in Holden, Massachusetts, and Caldwell, New Jersey, and a super- visor in Orange, Connecticut; she had served as principal and train- ing-school teacher at the Lexington Avenue School in Lowell. Under Miss Kirby ' s guidance we received excellent training which we appreciate; we thank her for the stimulating example which she embodied in her teaching. We cannot repay her, but we know that each one of us will be a center for greater in- fluences for good for having spent many happy hours in her classes. We hope Miss Kirby will find en- joyment in her retirement and that she holds many fond memories of Lowell Teachers College. TRAINING SCHOOL FACULTY A TRIBUTE TO JOHN E. BARR Prior to his retirement, Mr. John E. Barr held the position of principal at the Washington School, Lowell, Massachusetts, for thirty -nine years. Before coming to this school, Mr. Barr had a varied teaching experi- ence, including work in a one-room school in Maine and the Lowell High School. Mr. Barr attended the two-year course at Lowell Normal School and graduated with the class of 1897. He received his B.S.E. degree at Bates College where he also served as assist- ant in the English department. Mr. Barr was devoted to his teach- ing and enjoyed every minute of it. Our association with him was con- fined to a brief period of time, but, regrettably short as it was, it was long enough to teach us to regard him with respect as a scholar, a gentle- man, and a teacher. Under Mr. Ban ' s direction the training-school children received an education which was equipment for life. May prosperity and happiness at- tend you, Mr. Barr, in the years to come.

Many attempted the trip for adventure as much as gold. They experienced adventure in making the trip either by the Panama route or the overland route. Those who set out first had little knowl- edge of the trials and the necessary tools and accouter- ments. It was the vision ahead that gave them the courage to go on, and in many instances spirits needed to be revived. In the main, the hardy pioneers strived to ease the burden of the other travelers; if provisions had to be discarded they were usually placed where those following could find them easily a nd word was constantly sent back to forewarn travelers of difficulties — testimonies of their generosity. We forty-niners of a later century began our adventure, our four-year journey, with a definite goal toward which to strive. Our class looked to a degree and an opportunity to use our knowledge in the field of education, and this vision spurred us on. We persevered in our studies and abolished distractions that were not conducive to progress in this chosen field. We hope that we have engendered an attitude of sharing through contacts with our followers and that they will profit by our experience. Senior Class Officers President . Vice President Secretary . Treasurer . Mary Corby Patricia Paquin Helen Cremen Valerie Mauss [18] enior Message We, the prospectors of ' 49, have reached the end of our journey here at Lowell. In a few years we shall be all but forgotten as a class in the school; but to those who will still be here, those who face a one, two, or three-year search for gold, may we leave a few thoughts. Our faculty have led us with patience and with kindliness during our four years. They will listen to your problems, no matter how small or how large. They will work faithfully and diligently to help you discover solutions to these prob- lems. Interest in the student body as exhibited by our faculty at Lowell is rare indeed ! Our college is similar to a large family. Each has his unique duty to perform. We pride ourselves on this fact. It is your responsibility to keep it this way. It is your responsi- bility to pass this spirit on to new classes as they enter. It is your responsibility to carry it with you as you go about your work and play throughout the day. You may think this assignment is large, but it is this spirit of oneness that is Lowell Teachers College. In a family, when one sets about to accomplish something, the whole family bands together for the purpose of ac- complishing that one task. We feel that this attitude pre- vails at Lowell Teachers College. We, The Seniors, like to feel that we have done our small part in the four years we have been here to carry on and deepen the spirit of family togetherness. We wish there were something tangible we could leave which would equal what our college has done for us, but we will have to rely on the words " Thank you " to express what is in our hearts at this time. Your guidance, faculty members, has equipped us to face the problems of today ' s world. As a result of education under your guidance, we leave Lowell with a feeling of confidence. May you ever be proud of the class of ' 49. To our college mates, the underclassmen, we say to you in closing, participate in all activities — cherish even moment, every hour, for your four years pass all too quickly.

Those who in 1849 traversed this country in the wake of the trail-blazers were more fortunate than their vanguard. Not only did these " forty- niners " gain a preview of the trip to be undertaken from news circulation at the starting point, but also at almost every leg of the journey letters were strategically placed and trails were marked to warn those who followed of dangers ahead, such as dangerous rapids, undrinkable water, or desert land. Because of this preparation for the difficult spots and the utilization of the best method to cope with the obstacles, many instances of considerable discomfort were removed and the trip was less hazardous. The classes following the present-day ' 49ers, the members of the class of 1949 at Lowell Teachers College, will have some problems already solved and will fall into patterns of behaviour and comfortable grooves initiated by their pred- ecessors. They will have had the opportunity to learn effectively the means of coping with situations and to skirl successfully pitfalls. However, much is left for them to ac- complish and the journey remains challenging, but we trust that we have set an example which will be of service to them. J unior ci ass OFFICERS President . Vice President Secretary . Treasurer . Joan Brunelle Alphonse Tatarunis Barbara Farrar Patricia O ' Loughlin Friendly, cooperative, enthusiastic, and filled with new ideas are our Juniors at Lowell. We have no fears of leaving our place in college to those students. They have displayed their attributes freely through- out their three years here. At parties, dances, and in all sports the Junior Class was always in evidence. Constantly help- ful, they have left an indelible mark upon the college. One half of this class has already ex- perienced practice-school training. The other half will leave next year to go through this phase of our college life. This training will fully equip these stu- dents to assume senior status in the school and become true leaders of the college. As you step into your senior year, as you arrive as the class of 1950 of Lowell Teachers College, we wish you good luck —not only next year as Seniors, but throughout your lives. 36] Soph omore vjass ci. The Sophomore Class is one of the most active groups here at Lowell. When we render this praise, we are speaking of our " little sister " class whose members seem to be capable of accomplishing what- ever they set about doing. You would be apt to find one of our " little sisters " or " brothers " busy at numerous tasks in the college. They meet any problem with such a flurry of excitement and intensity that they will not be forgotten soon. We will never forget " Santa " or any olher of the characters we met at their " big sister " parlies, nor will we forget OFFICERS President . . Barbara Walsh Vice President . Margaret Murphy Secretary Theresa Regan Treasurer Jacqueline Cumin the many friendships we have found in our " littl e sister " class. Whenever thoughts of college come to our minds, thoughts of this class will be uppermost . May you, our sister class. Hud what you are seeking. We will never forget you or your friendliness. [ 37 Freshman CI ass OFFICERS President . Vice President Secretary . Treasurer . William Welsch Mary Gorman Ruth Coleman Lorraine Hurley Just starting out on the long road of college life at Lowell Teachers College, is the Freshman Class, large in numbers, powerful in spirit, and great in talent. This class has a long way to go but is off to an excellent beginning. Their mark was felt early in the year; they proved themselves capable in every way of assuming the responsibility thrust upon all newcomers at Lowell. We will all agree that their circus was a social high- light of the year. And, of course, we must not forget that one-sixth of the class is composed of men who are very talented, vocally and instrumentally! The first year at college sometimes seems the hardest, yet it is filled with fun always remembered in later years. This is the year new friendships are made, sometimes to last throughout life. We, as seniors, tell you to cherish every moment, every incident, and every friend. These will return to you later in life as your dearest memories. [38] ORGANIZATIONS SMOOTHING THE WAY An organization is any organized whole, having a definite structure and composed of various members, each of whom is essential to the perfection of the whole. The members of an organization are linked together by a common interest. When we look back on California in 1849 and especially San Francisco, we find not only gold digging in full swing but other equally strong occupations. Realizing the great need of the inhabitants for even the bare essentials for existence, a merchant class arose which catered to all and expanded to great proportions in a short time. Many engaged in agri- cultural pursuits, herding, and farming, which proved helpful to the populace. Naturally, business and professional men were in demand, and many people enrolled to swell these ranks. These groups were interdependent and tended to make the whole society more effective. Upon close observation, we find that our college in 194!) is made up of numerous groups or organizations. The student council, the athletic board, the newspaper staff, the lecture fund committee, the yearbook staff, the library staff, and the various clubs operate efficiently and are organized by students sharing a common interest. Just as the early 49 ' ers depended upon their organizations to enable them to live harmoniously, we depend upon our organizations in the school to facilitate the smoothest and most complete func- tioning of the college.

O ' Rourke 42 School and Society League The School and Society League of 1948-40 completed a year of active service and distinctive accomplishment. Every student " at college is a member of the league. The executive council is com- posed of officers elected from the entire student body, including representatives from each class, the Athletic Association, and the Music Department. Plans for the college year, student problems, social functions, and original ideas of the students are the topics of discussion at the council meetings. When- ever necessary, open forums are con- ducted by the council officers and opin- ions and suggestions are offered by the si udents themselves. OFFICERS Preside ill Vice President Secretary Treasurer Miriam holey Ruth lnnes Mary Slat t cry Louis Tata All the members of the council direct their energies toward the aim of increasing in the individual student a greater sense of responsibility and of pride in the col- lege. The council, under the capable guid- ance of Miss Marguerite Gourville, facul- ty advisor, has worked energetically to further the high standards and the best interests of Lowell Teachers College. 43 Athletic Association OFFICERS President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Virginia Grady Eleanor Duggan Dorothy Scalora . Jean Rierdan Sportsmanship and friendliness are the two qualities represented by the Blue and Gold of our Athletic Association. All students are members of the A. A. They entrust the establishment of rules and regulations to the executive board and to Miss Elizabeth Neilson, faculty advisor. The board supervises all sports activi- ties at the college. The indoor season of 1948-49 was marked by keen intramural competition, particularly in basketball, badminton and tennisquoit. The interests of the outdoor season are centered around hockey, Softball, tennis, riding, and archery. Alumnae Day finds former students back at the college for a day of fun and frolic. Parties, dances, and various sea- sonal sports complete an extensive pro- gram. The annual A. A. Banquet, held in May, is usually the apex of the entire sports season. Individual awards are presented to students who actively participated in sports throughout the year. [44] Campus Star The Campus Star embarked upon its third year of publication with an excess of literary ambition and journalistic energy. " Night and Day " could well be its theme song; just as pleasing the stu- dent population is its main endeavor. The college paper was organized in 1!)4(i and since that lime has produced several editions each year. Under the capable guidance of Miss Christine Kane, faculty advisor, and the adept leadership of the staff, the Campus Star is now (irmly established as the voice of student opinion and a representative product of Lowell Teachers ( lollege.

We were very proud to learn thai our news- paper received third-place honors in the State Teachers College Publications dur- ing the Eastern Siaic Conference held in New York (it v. 45 Library and Lecture Fund THE LIBRARY FIND The library at Lowell Teachers College strives to satisfy the recreational and informative needs of the student body. Our librarian, Miss Irene McDonald, encourages students to learn to open for themselves doors to ever broader horizons in literature. In order to maintain a library that functions to meet the needs of the stu- dents, a cooperative system was organ- ized during our sophomore year. A stu- dent from each class was elected to assist Miss McDonald in such duties as filing, typing, cataloguing, and circulation du- ties. THE LECTURE FUND This year the lecture fund, under the supervision of Mr. Cyrus Thompson, Music Director, has provided an oppor- tunity for the student body, through a series of concerts, to develop a deeper appreciation and love for fine music. This concert series is supplemented by other lectures of current interest in order to offer a well-rounded program for the year. 46] MUSIC DEPARTMENT THE WAY BY PANAMA In 1849 there were two much-traveled routes to the gold- fields of California, the overland route and the way by the Panama Canal. The latter was the usual and easier way to travel if one ' s assets lay in available finances. However, in following either route, the pioneers were confronted with many challenges — tests of physical strength and mental stamina — which they met admirably well. We 49 ' ers of the twentieth century had two routes from which to choose in order to reach our destination. If our assets lay in the field of music, we pursued the music course as the more suitable to travel. The course in preparation and the actual teaching of music offered challenges which were met and surmounted. The trials of these early pioneers were extreme tests of character, and it was with uplifted hearts that these travelers sailed between the Golden Gates. One hundred years later. we 49 ' ers have found the school course a challenge in per- severance and ability, but with uplifted spirits we view the college diploma and the promise lying ahead. Music Department The music department of State Teach- ers College at Lowell stresses broad and inclusive preparation for successful teach- ing and supervision. Cultural courses and practice teaching combine with numerous opportunities to perform before an audi- ence in order to develop skill as a teacher and as a performer. The freshman and sophomore years are concerned primarily with academic studies but include such music courses as melodic diction, music appreciation, and acoustics. The junior and senior years provide a diversified program with in- tensified musical training and techniques of teaching, the emphasis being on actual teaching experiences in music. Our train- ing program takes us from the first grade into junior high school and on into senior high school. Concurrent with these courses, are the weekly recitals and instrumental classes throughout our entire four years. The climax of our musical studies is reached in May of our senior year when each senior music student, performing in his respective major, is presented to the public in a formal recital. This recital is the last of a number of experiences as performers and as prospective music teachers to enable us to take part in music activities in the school and in the community. [50] ELEMENTARY THE ROUTE ACROSS THE PLAINS Those pioneers who attempted the journey for gold and adventure across the plains usually had assets in cattle and farm equipment rather than in money. This route attracted many hardy pioneers and they ultimately arrived at the same destination as those who went by sea. In following this overland route, the traveler, after leaving Salt Lake City, had to cross the waterless wasteland for days and nights, enter the Humboldt Sink with its great deserts and accompanying choking dust, fierce sun, disease and scant feeding grounds, surmount the Sierra Nevada Mountains before the first heavy snowfall, and emerge finally into the gold fields in an impoverished condition. He who arrived in California was a different person from the one who had started from the East. Just as many pioneers followed the overland route and ultimately arrived at the same goal as those who went by sea, so some of our pioneers followed the elementary course of study. I heir course, lasting as long as that of the music students ended in the same destination — a bachelor of science degree with a challenging future ahead. We may compare our trek to that of the early 4f) ' ers only to a, slight degree, for their weary overland trek was called a " Trial by fire. " However, just as the trip changed and strengthened the early pioneers, so did the elementary course, with the practice teaching, build character and strengthen beliefs and convictions. Elementary Course The Elementary Course prepares stu- dents to become teachers of young chil- dren. The first two years are spent in pur- suit of the basic liberal arts program, wherein the student has t he opportunity to gain a cultural background. The next two years are devoted to preparation for teaching; one of the most important phases of this part of the curriculum is the actual experience of working with children in the training schools. The teaching profession requires a period of initial training under super- vision. This apprenticeship is accom- plished during the junior and senior years when students are assigned to the elementary training schools to observe and teach. During this time we put into actual practice the techniques we have learned in the professional courses at college. Of particular help are courses in social studies, language arts, visual aids, and science methods. Following the train- ing period, the remedial reading course gives each student the opportunity to work with an individual child, helping the beginning teacher to understand more thoroughly the learning patterns of chil- dren. Having com pleted this intensive pro- gram we are ready to launch out on our own to make contributions worthy of our school and the profession of service to all mankind. . .teaching. [56] FEATURES ON THE TRAIL At the completion of the long cross-country journey, the pioneers of 1849 remembered the highlights of their mad rush across the plains. Even though the minor events were forgotten, they reflected upon the difficult episodes, the humorous occurrences, and the changing attitudes which the trip afforded. Each man was put to the test in surmounting the difficulties of fording innumerable streams with dangerous currents, in maintaining sufficient health to continue the march, in finding enoug h food and pure water for the cattle, and in keeping up the spirits of the tired adventurers. How- ever, there were humorous instances to balance the lot of the traveler. One enterprising craftsman, for a price, would carve one ' s name on a high ledge in plain view, and as quickly as the party passed out of sight he would chip it off and offer the same service in the exact same spot to another trusting soul. Many songs with variations and humorously fitting lyrics were sung around the campfires in the evening and often used expediently to raise the morale of the weary travelers. The occurrences of the trip, sad or funny or serious, had a deep and direct effect on the travelers, and these recollections lived long in their minds. At the completion of our journey through college, we naturally have a store of memories. The situations in which we found ourselves were often amusing, sometimes difficult, and extremely varied. These years in college have had a deep and direct effect on us; we will not forget soon the high- lights of a treasured journey of our lives. CLASS Words and Music by Ruth S.

Carrying our books in pillow- cases — off to a good start ! BIG SISTERS — Upperclassmen with whom we spent many happy hours and became close friends — after In- itiation. BIOLOGY — The periods when we searched in vain for that elusive " Amoeba! " Tried to dissect an earthworm and enjoyed the antics of our two classmates when they re- leased the turtle in the Assembly Hall. FIELD TRIP— " Henry V, " the Har- vard Library, some of us going to that " certain show, " getting in the wrong door at the Blue Hills — and . . .remember the pilots at Logan airport? ADVISOR— Miss O ' Rourke— " our pret- ty little redhead, " who guided us throughout our journey with friend- ship and understanding. TRANSPORTATION— The Lawrence bus, how the drivers loved our sing- ing — " The Green Hornet " not a radio detective, but a bright green car — guaranteed to hold at least 17 people ! RUSSELLS — Where some of the girls came " down from the top " ; ate everything on the menu — (with 32 chews), slept in beds full of cracker crumbs and were " the " class. 64] CUPID — The fellow who reigned at our Valentine formal, remember the lacy decorations and that special box of confetti under the center wheel? NATIONALS — Exams during our Soph- omore year. The special pencils, " make a large black mark, " now let ' s see was Grendel in " Beowulf " —or — ? HAMPTON— That Beach!! Where we- " paid our seven dollars, " slept four in a bed and sometimes pushed each other out (remember?); had to burn the curtains for firewood, we made and unmade that bed, and " that to you! " was our password. AMATEUR ANTICS— The first year it was held and we won! Remember the " six little tailors " and the snake charmer — not to mention the strong man, Hawaiian dancers and Chiquita, the Banana. Of course, we are trying to forget the " Trip to Hollywood, " and that " fallen " angel, but we are proud of the " Spirit of ' 49 " and again winning the Oscar. We cer- tainly were happy! CLASS DAY— Lobster rolls and Lot dogs — ice cream and watermelon how we did eat! Our farewell to our big sisters, we would certainly miss them. Then Step Singing, we were the " Sophomores, mighty Sopho- mores " -- and " Tumba-d " our way to victory and winning of the banner. LITTLE SISTERS— A wonderful group of girls who are peppy and full of enthusiasm, we, as Juniors, were fortunate to be able to adopt them and tried not to be too hard on I hem during Initiation. PROM — Longwood Towers — icy streets —turkey dinner — those pictures! the " missing " boy friends — all the new gowns- how can we ever forget our Junior Prom? 65 mi - i " w i -»» - ' " ft PARTIES — Duffy ' s Tavern — remember Finnegan? The war-whooping Indians and their big Chief — Santa Claus and his helpers, those penny sales where we made all the money and sold everything and anything, and of course the fried clams and fried chicken . . . who did eat the most . . . Section V or Section VI? METHODS — The Courses in which we learned how to teach children prop- erly, remember " units, " " indi- vidual differences, " -— terms that came to mean a great deal as we studied and progressed. PRACTICE SCHOOL Fifteen weeks when we actually taught for the first time, and did so under the competent supervision of the training-school faculty. To them we owe a debt of gratitude for the help and encourage- ment they gave us. RINGS — The symbol of our college. Gold and Blue. " Which ring do you like? " Measuring our fingers and wondering how soon our treasured rings would arrive. INVESTITURE— When we suddenly realized that our college days were drawing to a close. " On which side should the tassel be " .... " keep in step " - — " To thee our college " . . . DRACUT — The high school where we music majors trained during the Senior year. Remember running for the bus, hoping for a ride, and wondering just who was to teach for today ! ! INTERVIEWS— What is the difference between a project and a unit?-— Why do you want to become a teacher? Question and answer ses- sions with superintendents and super- visors who were interested in us as prospective elementary teachers. [66] Wonderful, friendly people who made each interview very interesting. " What did he say? " , " It ' s my turn now. " ASSEMBLY— Where we met each day for a brief service, made our an- nouncements, heard of program changes and sometimes entertained— remember " Spike " Rierdan and her human band, and our theme song, " Buy a Yearbook, to Feel Your Level Best! " CHORUS — Coming together once a week to sing and enjoy ourselves— " Boom- fer-a-la-la-, " " The Lord Is Great, " " Bow-wow- wow, I Lost My Little Doggie. " CUT — Something we never did — (well hardly ever). During which time our password was — " Let ' s go to Dun- fey ' s, " and all would say " I ' ll be in the smoker. " OFFICE — Where two lovely people are always patient with us, even when we forget to pay our tuition fees on time, and never seemed to have a bus ticket. SENIOR PROM— " Where shall we hold it? " " Are you getting a new gown? Let ' s have favors. " A long looked forward to event, our last L.T.C. formal, how we enjoyed them all, and especially this one, our last get-together as Seniors. COMMENCEMENT— The end of our college days. As we received our di- plomas we were both happy and sad; happy because we had successfully completed four years at Lowell, and sad because we were leaving our beloved college and I he many friends we had made here. " We fondly bid farewell to thee and hold you in our memory— [67 UU1 r Smy -• " T Little Sisters Since the day you entered college and our lives, Little Sisters and Brothers, you have occupied a spe- cial place in our hearts. You have filled it with gaiety and the spirit that is essentially yours. Our junior and senior years are filled with memories of you, which we shall always remember, parties, dances, sports. All are invariably connected in some way with you. And though we leave Lowell Teachers College, our many friends in this class will remain forever with us. Faculty Directory Herman H.

Since everyone at Lowell Teachers College is a member of either the Army or the Navy team, spirits run high among spectators as well as the players. The entire student body is busy attending rallies and skits, and helping with decorations. Every sport has an Army-Navy play- off at the end of the season, the victors receive points which are accumulated throughout the year. A gold loving cup serves as an incentive to spur the teams on to greater efforts. When the Athletic Association holds its annual banquet during the month of May the cup is awarded to either the Army General or the Navy Admiral by President Dugan.

They left opened gold fields, but more — a spirit to inspire a nation ! In one hundred years how life has changed! Our four year journey has brought us a long way, But the future will be the test of our striving. As teachers we have a great cause to fulfill- To mold and guide young minds to sift the true from the false. Tomorrow ' s world will reflect the spirit of children whom we teach!
