Elaine belongs to the quiet part of our class.
If you meet a girl with a pleasant smile and
a cheery "Hi" you have met Elaine. Elaine
wants to be a teacher. Good luck, Elaine!
Who is that serious minded chap that wears
the band sweater and is always seen with
a school book? That's Elwyn. Elwfyn is our

ROBERT AUNCHMAN "Dutchy"
"There's a little Dutch hill,
And a little Dutch mill. . ."
And, oh yes, there's always "Dutchy". That
smile has won many a heart. But there's
more than a smile to this young lad. Fall re-
cords his name with a football, Winter crowns
his head in glory with basketballg and Spring
remembers him in baseball. Well, "Dutchy",
we can't just wish you luck, we know you'll
have it. S0 we say, "Adios" or rather "Au
Who is that with the sunny smile, mis-
chievous wink, and friendly 'iHi"? Why, it's
Polly, of course. Did you ever see such pep?
Polly's excellent tap-dancing is an old story.
We hear she wishes to become a nurse. With
that cheery disposition she should be success-

Who is this nice looking chap whose dancing
we all hear so much about ?-why, "Buck" of
course. They say that he is a very good pool
player in addition to all his other accomplish-
ments. Well, "Buck", we know that you will
be a real success, but he sure to keep behind
the eight ball.
She's a quiet little maiden-this Louella
Brown. She enjoys her school work much
more than all the dancesg and does it get her
places! Almost anybody in the class would
be happy to have an average equal to hers.
That isn't all, either. "Lou" has poetic am-
bitions. Her fine work has been exhibited in
several editions of THE MERCURY.

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:

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."

Why do all the girls fall for Kenneth? The
swagger? No, that's mostly habit. Look
closer. Right. lt's the eyelashes. They are
real. But don't hold that against him. And,
if anyone asks, he is a musician too. Trumpet.
He is one of the musicians that made jazz
worth listening to.

"Small but Mighty" is an old saying which
indeed holds true in B. F. A. "Babe" may be

her her height. We're for you, Babe!

Blond, petite, and unruflied-these are
the characteristics of "Mannie". She not only
has her share of popularity, but also manages

career--Whatever it may be.
