ELAINE ABELL "Come, pensive Nun, devout and pure Sober, steadfast and demuref' 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! Course: General. ELWYN ABELL 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 own historian. Course: General.

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 revoir". Course: General. PAULINE BARSALOU 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- ful. Course: Commercial.

WINSTON BEVINS 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. Course: General. LOUELLA BROWN 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.

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 praise. 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 oflice. 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 Bob Devon ........ f ...... Richard Jeffrey Kratz .......... .... R obert Aunchman 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 darknessg So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence." EDITH PATTE12 '34 Class Historian
