VVe have climbed to the top of the mountain
Now worn and rugged with time
That loomed soifar up above us,
When first we attempted the climb.
And as weglance back down the hillside
Far down to the depths of the vale,
We notice a throng of successors
Who follow our well-blazed trail,
When yet the ascent was before us
Life appeared narrow and small,
For what we could see from the lowlands
Was little or nothing at all.
But now it seems to be calling-
Life in its wondrous ,arrayg
Now we're prepared to attain it
On this transitional day.
And with us we find a great meeting
Of friends from all over the land,
Who are bidding farewell to their classmates
With a last, sincere grasp of the hand.
Our journey together is ended,
For the trails that we choose to pursue
Will scatter us over the country
And maybe across the sea, too.
THE MERCURY 5
Once more we are all here assembled
As the class of the year '34,
And the memory of this our commencement
Will live in our hearts evermore.
SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Friends and members of the class of 1934,
we are entering another harbor in our journey
of life. Time is fleeting. It is probable that
to most of us the day we entered first grade
is fresh in our memories. The tide of time
carried us swiftly through those eight years
which followed and brought us safely into the
port of the eighth grade graduation, from
which we launched forth, four years ago, on
the trip through high school. It would be
impossible to touch upon the joys and sorrows
of each one personally, but let us review some
of the outstanding events of those four years.
On September 9, 1930, we set sail. For the
first few weeks we were tossed and jostled
about. Then some kindly senior came to our
rescue and suggested that we elect officers to
man our ship. We considered carefully and
chose the following, who steered us safely
through the first year:
Richard Raymond .......... President
llluriel Palmer ........ Vice-President
Madelyn Collins . . . ..... Secretary
Robert Trombley .......... Treasurer
Although we were only freshmen the upper
classmen had to admit we had talent in our
class, for when the Cast was announced for
the Girls' Glee Club play, "College Days"
the following were chosen from our class-
Mabel Start, Rachel Cole, and Leila Ginett.
Again in May of the same year, Robert Trom-
bley, Winston Bevins, and Jack VVhite took
part in "Hearts and Blossoms" given by the
Boys' Glee Club.
When the sophomores tendered our class a
reception in February, it was the first one to
be held in the new gymnasium. Something
about the word receptions seems to abash the
freshmen, and they never attend them well.
Such was the case with us.
Following this reception the days passed
swiftly along with the usual ups and downs.
We Houndered through two sets of examina-
tions and with sighs of relief were content
to spend our summer in as carefree a manner
We lifted the anchor again in the fall of
1931 with the following staff to conduct our
ship: - '
Robert Trombley . . . ..... President
Mabel Start ...... . . .
Muriel Palmer . . . . . . . .
Alan Sweeny ............. Treasurer
We were sophomores, but we did try very
hard to remember to speak to the freshmen
and encourage them, for but one short year
ago we had been in their places and knew
what it meant to have someone take a little
During this year the Boys' and Girls' Glee
Clubs decided to combine in presenting an
operetta, and a very successful one was pro-
duced in "Pickles". Those from our class
taking leading parts were Robert Trombley
and James Cioffi. Many others sang in the
It was now our duty to give the freshmen
a reception, and after some effort we staged
a very colorful one in our school gymnasium.
As sophomores we were just getting accus-
tomed to the order of social affairs and school
events. In our junior year we became more
accustomed to attending to these duties. We

carried on our activities under the following
Alan Sweeny . . . ...... President
Rachel Cole ...... .... V ice-President
Miriam Wise ...., ...... S ecretary
Adrien Trembley ......... Treasurer
This year We had our first right to mem-
bership on the "Mercury,' staff. The "Mer-
cury" had been started in our freshmen year,
and we had developed a great interest in its
welfare. The following were named on the
staff and they carried out their duties in a

VVe were "out of pocket", so to speak, when
we began considering the Junior-Senior Ball.
Cooperation on the part of the members of
the class in the paying of dues and frequent
food and rummage sales made it possible to
raise the money necessary to give the seniors
a brilliant farewell.
On the Monday night following the prom
eight juniors took part in the annual Junior
Prize Speaking contest. There was some talk
as to the advisability of having this because
of the expense of a coach, but it was finally
decided to charge a small fee at the door,
which overcame this difficulty. lldiss Eleanor
Royce kindly consented to coach us. First
prize was won by Muriel Palmer, second by
Rachel Cole and third by Edith Pattee.
I think that most of us felt, at Commence-
ment time last June, a sort of pride that we
should be the graduates next year, however,
we were, deep down in our hearts, glad that
we had one more year to spend in B. F. A.
and did not realize how swiftly that year
When we entered school last fall, we felt
like privileged charactersg for we commanded
the respect due seniors and the right to just
a little more liberty, just a bit more whisper-
ing, because this was our last year.
After two trials we elected officers to un-
dertake the many responsibilities of the senior
class on the last lap of its journey toward the
graduation port. They were as follows:
Robert Trombley ........... President
Mabel Start ...... . . . Vice-President
Margaret Corliss . . . ..... Secretary
Alan Sweeny ............. Treasurer
During this year the leading positions on
the "Mercury" staff fell to the seniors. The
following were chosen for these:
Alan Sweeny ................ Editor
Miriam Wise ......... French Editor
Janet MacCal1um . . . Managing Editor
Margaret Corliss ...... Alumni Editor
Kathleen Smith ....... Literary Editor
Robert Hodet ........ Periscope Editor
Mabel Start ..... Circulation Manager
On November the ninth we held our first
senior supper. It was in the form of a banquet,
and a delicious supper was served under the
supervision of Miss Rich. The after dinner
speakers were-Miriam Wise, Richard Ray-
mond and Mr. White. Robert Aunchman
played two violin solos. It was a success in
every Way, and a great deal of credit is due
our President and Vice-President, Robert
Trombley and Mabel Start for the delightful
evening spent by all.
Christmas time rolled round and the boys
were right on deck with a skit to be given
the Friday before vacation. The harmony
quartet, modern school, and instrumental
pieces were a credit to the boysg and it certainly
was enjoyed, especially by the freshmen and
sophomores, for it was the first witnessed by
most of them.
After the Christmas vacation our attention
was turned toward examinations and marks
for the first semester. All seniors wished to
do well in every subject and start the new
semester with clear slates and a big chance
of eliminating those final "exams" by attaining
the required average.
Soon after the mid-years senior meetings
were held, graduation being the main issue.
It was voted at one such meeting to wear
THE MERCURY 7
caps and gowns. We are the first class to
extend this dignity to B. F. A. Mr. Dickinson
also presented the idea of "Ivy Day" and we
immediately decided to include this ceremony
among our graduation festivities. Probably
some of you witnessed this novel program,
given under the direction of a capable com-
mittee, this afternoon.
The senior girls laid aside debates and dis-
cussions on these subjects long enough to get
together and plan a delightful, original skit
for the Friday before Easter vacation. A mid-
night feast in a girls' dormitory was the scene.
All sorts of goodies were enjoyed to the envy
of the audience, especially when the members
of the faculty were treated to delicious cakes.
fhe time and effort of the girls were well
spent, for the entertainment was received with
The last of April the class had its second
senior supper. The secretary and the treas-
urer, Margaret Corliss and Alan Sweeny were
hostess and host. For this occasion the supper
was served buffet style. Instead of some of the
seniors helping as they have in previous years,
lkliss Rich and her Home Economics class
took entire charge and the seniors were guests.
George Bevins rendered two harmonica solos,
Lawrence Locklin played an original com-
position, Adrien Tremblay did a tap dance
and Rachel Cole, llflabel Start and Miriam
VVise presented a humorous skit following the
supper. Then songs were enjoyed by everyone
with Mrs. Atwood at the piano. This was
a carefree, happy time when the boys could
shout all they wished Without being reproved
by Mr. Dickinson.
In the last part of the Spring term it be-
came necessary, upon the resignation of our
President, Robert Trombley, to elect a new
one. Richard Raymond was chosen for this
At one of our senior meetings Mr. Dickinson
made it known that the senior class play was
to be over before final examinations and gradu-
ation activities. Complying with this mandate,
"Husbands On Approval" was presented on
May 24 and 25. The cast was as follows:
Nancy Glover .... .... L ucille Daley
Rita Glover .... . . . Pauline Barsalou
Mrs. Glover ............. Muriel Palmer
Catherine, the maid ..... Katherine Rooney
Sam Glover ........ Warren Marchessault
Dick Fitzgerald ............. John White
Colonel Maynard Rowe ..... Edwin Pelkey

Hamilton Seaver ........ Robert Trombley
Did you see it? lf you did not you don't
know what you missed. If you did you know
what a success it was in every way.
The class of 1934 is fortunate in having
some outstanding musicians. Rachel Cole,
Mabel Start, Miriam Wise, Margaret Corliss,
lVIuriel Palmer and Elwyn Abell have played
in our school orchestra much of the time during
the four years. This year Rachel Cole was
chosen at the State Festival to attend the New
England Festival. This is a credit to the school
and our class.
All in all, I think our class is the best one
that has ever graduated from B. F. A. Of
course, you are saying, that's what they all
say, but don't you really think we have proved
our worth and will you not forgive the mis-
takes we have made and always think of us
kindly as we journey nearer and nearer the
harbor until We can see the lights glimmering
in the distance. We are loath to leave B. F.
A., Mr. Dickinson with his stern commands
and funny stories, and the faculty with their
friendly aid and sympathy. The journey has
been swift-it seems as if our friendships are
only begun, but such is this voyage of life.
The poet alone has words to express this in-
"Ships that pass in the night, and speak each
other in passing,
Only a signal shone and a distant voice in the
So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again
and a silence."

THE MERCURY 15
The death of Ralph Beauregard created
a loss felt most deeply by the students and
faculty of B. F. A. It is more than the ab-
sence of a teacher we feel, it is a friend who
is gone. He was the friend of every boy and
girl in the school. Friendliness was his pre-
We can never forget Mr. Beauregard's
classes. His sympathetic aid encouraged many
to greater efforts. His stories interrupted the
monotony of class work and made it more
agreeable. The nature of his teaching inspired
effort. It was like letting down a pal to shirk
an assignment in one of his subjects. At the
year's end in some strange manner you knew
the subject and could remember only enjoying
his class. He punished us at times but he was
always justified. A week later we would be
joking with him over the incident. At noon
there was always a group of students
rounding him at the end of the upper hall.
He was always ready to help a student both
in and out of school. He was one of the best-
liked teachers in the building. To many he
was the most popular.
-The door is closed between us now, but
Mr. Beauregard's spirit will never leave our
memories. It is bound there forever by the
bonds of a hundred little incidents, in the
classroom and out, which can never be broken.

The Northern League
Every June for years past, Vermont's schol-
astic baseball battle has taken place, fought
2 -r '
by the newspapers and cheered on by the ad-
herents of a dozen championship-claiming
nines. The big diamond question seemed to
be "pennant, pennant, Who's got the pennant ?"
Nobody knew but everybody said he did. In
some years a team of unquestioned superiority
appeared, but these years were few. Usually
two or three widely separated schools, with
equally good records, laid claim to the mythical
bunting. The unfortunate part of the argu-
ment was that the only way of settling it lay
in involved play-offs, and that distance or the
closing of school prevented these. It was an
unfortunate situation and seldom was satis-
factorily disposed of.
In order that Vermont high school teams
should no more experience the customary pen-
nant predicament, the Northern Vermont
Baseball League was formed last fall. Not
that the best team in this league will neces-
sarily be crowned champion of Vermont, but
the question will be settled among the north-
ern teams at leastg and a championship game,
it seems, could then easily be arranged with
the southern leader.
The Northern Baseball League, springtime
approximate of the Northern Vermont Basket-
ball League, certainly fills a long felt need
in state schoolboy athletics. Comprised of
seven of the largest schools in the northern
territory, the league should furnish an undis-
puted champion of northern Vermont base-
ball. A play-off with the southern champion
would establish the winning team in unchal-
lenged possession of the interscholastic base-
ball title. By settling the championship
question, the league will end the yearly
never-settled newspaper squabbles and should
aid in furthering the feeling of good-will
between the schools, by terminating the post-
16 THE MERCURY
season disagreements of supporters Of the
Various trophy claimants.
It would Seem the logical step now to estab-
lish a Vermont football league. Although
attended by more difficulties than the forma-
tion Of basketball and baseball associations,
a football league including only the largest
schools and divided into. a northern and
southern division with provision for a play-
off seems practical. The papers and supporters
wrangle just as long over the football cham-
pionship as they do over the baseball. There-
fore if the league system brings the baseball
championship controversy under control, a
football league should certainly be formed.
Any way you look at it, the Northern
Baseball League will improve the tenor of
state high school athletics. We hail it as a
definite step toward the goal Of perfection in
the relations between Vermont high Schools.
The staff of THE MERCURY wishes to ex-
press its appreciation tO Miss Cross and the

wish also to thank the proof readers, Marjorie

Lyle Collins ,25 writes for THE MERCURY:
'fAlmost immediately after graduating from
the University of Vermont in 1929, I joined
the Standard Oil Co. of New York for a
three-year term abroad in the Orient. After
some fourteen weeks of training in New York
City with a class of about thirty others se-
lected from colleges all over the United
States, I crossed the continent to sail from
San Francisco, Oct. 15, 1929, by the Dollar
Liner 'President IVIcKinley,' in company with
five of my classmates.
"Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, was our first
sight of land after a pleasant week at sea, and
we all went ashore to stretch our legs, rest
our eyes with the beautiful verdant scenery
and enjoy the surf of Waikiki Beach. Then
there were a couple of stops at Yokohama and
Kobe in Japan where we got our first taste
of the Orient, had our first ricksha rides, ate
of the famed sukiaki, and for the first time
felt ourselves as foreigners, with a language
not our own spoken all about us,
"The large and busy city of Shanghai was
our first Chinese port of call, and those of us
who did not have orders to stop there were
just as well pleased-there was too much of
the hurried air of New York there to suit us.
"We steamed into the entrancingly beautiful
harbor of Hongkong in the evening just as
the sun was setting and the very blue waters
were reflecting its red and gold. On Victoria
Island, opposite the Kowloon docks, the lights
could just be seen picking out the Corkscrew
road to the summit of 'The Peak,' habitat
of Hongkongys elite.
"I was sent to Amoy, a seaport some four
I. me rum-
hundred miles north of Hongkong for my first
year. Amoy was famed in the days of the
clipper ships as the packing place for Formosan
tea, my own impression of it now is that it
is an extremely pleasant place to live in since
most of the Europeans, numbering some three
hundred, live on the pretty little island of
Kulangsu in the harbor. I
'fDuring the next eight months I was sta-
tioned at Swatow, another Chinese seaport
which is now growing in commercial impor-
tance, about midway between Hongkong and
Amoy. The last year and four months of my
term was spent at Singapore, Straits Settle-
ments, where I had an opportunity to do a
great deal of travelling throughout the Straits
Settlements, IVIalaya, Sumatra, Borneo, and
into Siam. Singapore, though situated but
seventy miles north of the equator and having
a very warm and humid climate, is, never-
theless, a beautiful and healthful place in
which to live. Besides being the maritime
'crossroads of the world', that city gives one
the immediate impression of the most cos-
mopolitan spot on earth.
"After completion of my services with the
Standard Oil Co., having plenty of time to
come home via Europe, I spent six months
doing that in company with some friends, ar-
riving home about the first of June, IQ33.H

At this time every year we bring to light
quite a few interesting facts among the stu-
dents of B. F. A. We picked these up in the
corridors. Favorite songs are very prominent,
especially "Waiting At The Gate For Katy,"
sung by Dick Jeffrey to Kate Stone. "What's
Sauce For The Goose is Sauce For The
Gander' is Dutchy Aunchman's favorite. Then
"Pretty Polly Perkins" fwhich we changed
to Barsalou, is dedicated to Polly Barsalou
who certainly can keep 'em "Stringin' Along
On A Shoe String." We're singing "The
Last Round-up" for our dear little freshmen
whose meetings are just as the song indicates.
When Mr. Papineau says "Write 200 French
rules for tomorrow," the inevitable result is
a chorus of "Oh, You Nasty Man!" Tensy
Marchessault's favorite is "There's Something
About A Soldierf, Warren is always telling
Katherine that "Your Time Is My Time."
Lolly and Babe-we're that surprised! "So
At Last Its Come To This." Our advice

fulf' Bob Deso regards a certain street as his
"Boulevard Of Broken Dreams." I wonder
if itls Cedar Street? When Miss Cunningham
says to Shorthand Ill classes "Take these
letters and transcribe them,', among a number
of "Oh's,' and "Ah's" we find our favorite
song to her, "You're An Old Meanie."
Fortuna has changed hunting grounds.
Winooski is the honored place now. Perhaps
some of the rest will have a chance in Swan-
ton. White is quite taken up with his bicycling.
Think of it-down to the lake and back every
Sunday. Is it just for exercise? Pelkey's
favorite sport is fishing. And in Alburg--

This story Won the S150 scholarship offered
by the University of Vermont for the best
short story submitted by high school students
of the state.
llIary Ellen sat dreamily in a garden chair,
watching the butterflies in the bright garden.
All during the winter months Mary Ellen
was an instructor in English in a co-educa-
tional college in a distant part of the state,
but when summer came she put all thought
of work behind her and settled down to enjoy
Suddenly she was aroused from her happy
thoughts by quick steps coming through the
hall. Then a voice called, "Mary Ellen! Oh
Mary Ellen! Where are you?"
Before Mary Ellen could answer, the
owner of the voice appeared in the doorway
leading from the porch to the house. She
was an attractive girl, several years older than
Mary Ellen, but now she was frowning, and
spoke in a voice filled with exasperation.
"Well, Nora has gone!" she announced, as
she dropped into an easy chair near her sister-
Mary Ellen regarded her visitor rather
"Why make such a fuss about it. she
aksed. "You and I can get along until you
can find someone else."
"Is that so ?" said Marion Leslie. "That's
all you know about it. Have you forgotten
that Dave is bringing a man home with him
tomorrow to stay several days? If it were pos-
sible for us to get some one out here-which
it isnlt today, how could We break her in by
lunch time tomorrow? Do come out of your
dream and try to figure some way out of the
awful mess we are in."
Mary Ellen was in a dream no longer. She
had forgotten all about her brother's friend,
this noted scientist he was so anxious to
please. "Why in the world had Nora taken
this day of all days to leave? What could be
For some minutes there was silence. Then,
suddenly, Mary Ellen gave a little cry and
began to giggle. She sat up, her eyes dancing
"I have it! Oh I have it! Marion. What
a lark! Behold in me the new maid of all
works!" she said between giggles.
Marion looked at her laughing sister-in-
law. "It's no laughing matter to me, if it is
to you," she said, sharply. "Dave is so par-
ticular about this man that I can't tell him
not to have him come out. I might have
known you would see only the funny side
Mary Ellen stopped laughing, but her eyes
'Tm not making fun, Marion, Dear," she
said quietly. "I mean it. Why not let me
be cook and waitress until this man has gone?
He doesn't know that Dave has a sister, and
you know I really can cook. It would be like
a play. Oh, I'd love to do it! Why not ?"
Marion Leslie sat looking at Mary Ellen,
too astonished for Words. Then she said,
slowly: "Mary Ellen, I believe you could
do it. I don't know what Dave will say, but
I can't seem to see any other way out. And,
after all, it's only for two days!"
"So you do think it will work?"
"Yes, I believe it will."
The next morning when David Leslie and
his friend arrived, they were met at the door
by Marion, cool and charming in white linen.
As she kissed her husband, she managed to
whisper, "Don't ask any questions."
David was puzzled, but he followed in-
structions g and when the guest had been shown
to his room, Marion rushed him to the
kitchen. There his startled and surprised
eyes saw! a trim maid, in a neat black dress,
a tiny white cap and a wisp of organdie that
answered for an apron.
Suddenly the maid burst into laughter, and
then, for the first time, he realized that he
was looking at his sister.
"What in thunder--"he began, but
Marion let him go no further. She quickly exf
22 THE MERCURY
plained the situation, watching him carefully
as she did so.
"Some jokeli' he said, almost helpless with
laughter. !'Oh, what a joke! But I'll have
to hand it to you, Sis. You are some looker
in that outfitf'
A step on the stair sent David out of the
kitchen followed by his wife. But Mary Ellen
stood where she was, her eyes on the door
swinging shut after her brother and Marion.
"Hm-m-m-!" she said at last, slowly and
thoughtfully. "I donlt like the way that boy
acted. There is something fishy back of that
laugh of his, and I am going to find out what
it is, too."
She did-much sooner than she expected!
When lunch time came around, the family
seated themselves at the attractive table. The
guest looked with pleasure at the sight of
the dainty doilies, the crisp rolls, the fruit
cocktails in tall amber glasses.
Out in the kitchen Mary Ellen had the
lunch all ready to serve. She washed her hands
and powdered her nose, then tiptoed Over t0
the door for one look at the guest. She swung
the door open a bit and took one peep-and
jumped back her face filled with horror.
What in the world should she do? Perhaps
she had been mistaken. She would look once
more. Again she opened the door a crack. No,
she was right the first time, and her brother's
guest, was no other than Dr. Ernest Allen,
the head of the Science Department at her
own college, a man she had always admired
and worshiped at a distance.
That was why Dave had laughed! He knew
and yet he had let her go on! Ah, he'd PHY
for this! But just then the buzzer sounded,
and setting her cap more firmly on her red
head she opened the door and entered the
As Mary Ellen came toward the table Dr.
Allen looked up from his cocktail. For a
moment he sat there, spoon in hand, his startled
gaze on the maidg then he regained control
of himself and returned to his lunch.
But he closely watched Mary Ellen as she
capably removed the cocktail glasses and
served the rest of the meal. When at last
she left the room he turned to his hostess.
f'Rather unusual type of maid you have, Mrs.
Leslie," he said easily. "Has she been with
you long ?"
"Oh, yes, indeed. She has been with us
for years,', she answered rather quickly. "Do
have another roll, Dr. Allen."
For some reason or other David Leslie kept
out of his sister's way that afternoon. He saw
to it that Dr. Allen was always in sightg and
he chuckled wickedly when he saw Mary
Ellen shake her small fist at him from the
kitchen door. He could not let a joke like
this go by him.
Dinner passed off smoothly, and with a
sigh of relief Mary Ellen saw Marion
David with their guest disappear into the
living room. As she cleared the table she
wondered if he had recognized her. She had
not been able to tell by the few glances she
had managed to steal. Ah, What a mess!
Out in the living room the men were smok-
ing. What could three people do? How
llvlarion wished for lllary Ellen to make a
fourth at bridge.
At length, Dr. Allen threw away his half-
smoked cigarette and said, "I believe I'll
wander about the garden a bit, Leslie, if you
don't mind. It looks inviting."
"Why, we'll all go, Dr. Allen," said
llflarion. "This is the best time of the day."
"Just a minute, Marion," said David quick-
ly. "Run along, doctor. We'll be with you
"Well of all things!" exclaimed Marion
when the doctor was out of earshot. "David
Leslie, you are positively rude to let Dr. Allen
go off by himself like that."
"VVait a minute, honey," said her husband.
"Wait a minute! Unless I am mistaken our
honored guest is at this moment at the kitchen
door talking to our new maid."
Out in the kitchen Mary Ellen had just
finished her dishes.
"Good evening, Miss Leslie," said a voice
from the doorway. "I hope your mistress

Mary Ellen turned quickly. Never had
she looked more attractive, with her flushed
cheeks and moist curls framing her face. Dr.
Allen stood in the doorway, his black eyes
laughing in a way Mary Ellen, the teacher,
had never seen them do. An imp of mischief
peeped out of the girl's eyes as she said, de-
murely, "Oh, no, sir. She even lets me take
my followers into the dining roomf'
"All right, go ahead, for I'm following right
behind," said the doctor, smilingly.
"But I don't understand how you can be
so different," he remarked some time later,
after explanations had been made. "I guess
I'll have to ask your brother to let us come
up here for a week-end, once in a while," sug-
gested the doctor eagerly. "I don't like the
idea of losing the real you, now that I have
Mary Ellen blushed delightfully, as she
slid down from the kitchen table where she
had been sitting.
"Well, I might, perhaps, forget, once in a
while, that I was a teacher," she said en-
"And now, don't you think you'd better go
back and prepare your host and hostess for
the appearance of the "help" in their midst?
They'll wonder what has become of you."
But Dr. Allen lingered, "You'll be right
"Give me fifteen minutes," answered Mary
Ellen, with a laugh.
Left alone in the kitchen, the girl stood for
a moment gazing dreamily into space. Ah,
he was wonderful, much nicer than she ever
thought he could be. She could hardly wait
to get back to college. She took off her apron
and hung it behind the door. Then seeing a
bowl of prunes on the table she absently
salted it liberally before putting it away in
