HARDING a Sincere Friend and Adviser We respectfully dedicate this Ijook FOREWORD Oh, you who wish to read lue Lend but to me your eye, I stand for all that’s noble. For smiles and not a sigh. Kind memories I leave thee For years, as time rolls on. Not as a fading sunset. But glowing as the dawn. Think not of all the grinding Four years have spelled for you Remember all the happy days And sweethearts not a few. Now, rivalry is friendship.

H. S ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. The editors are indebted to persons outside the board whose con- tributions have helped to make this book. The editors, therefore, wish to express their gratitude to those who have helped to make this book a success. IN GENERAL. Messrs. Charles H. Rogers, Lee L. Harding, Principal Woodbury and Major Lowe, all of the faculty, and Mr. W. L. Walker, of the H. M. Downs Printing Co., who has shown a personal as well as a business interest in the publishing of the book. LITERARY. All those who have contributed to the “Grind” department. MISCELLANEOUS. To make easier the work of the printers it was necessary to have the material typewritten. The following deserve credit for aiding in this work: Anna Maynard, Dorothy Parks and Bernice Day. We are also indebted to Harold Malloy for many services. 13 IRnguf H dalbrg CARL FRANCIS HOLLO RAN. (irrat Mc ' ii are made to meet or make Kreat occasions “Tub” has Iteen our estecMiied leader for the last two years. His pojjularity was shown by his unani- mous election as Class President this year. He showerl his mettle last year by getting a place on the relay team. He made a great “hit” as Orlando in the Class play. His “diggings” are in West Fitchlmrg and he can tell you how much a pound of tea weighs. SARA FRANCES ANDERSON. .Vround her shone The light of love, the purity of grace. “Sahara” has been our Vice-President for the past two years and has filled her position very efficiently. She has always been the leading and most popular girl in the class, and is always kept busy. She has acquired the art of making everybody like her, and is noted for her poijularity. JESSIE LOUISE ANDERSON. When fun and duty clash, Let duty go to smash. “Jess” is always right there with bells on when it comes to having a jolly good time — and, by the way, she always makes a good time better. She has proved very popular as Class Secretary this year. ALLAN REED PRIEST The rattling, battling fool. The tearing, swearing, thumping, bumping. Panting, roaring fool. Allan has proved this beyond a doubt — in the Class play. He has handled our money this year and was editor-in-chief of the Red and Gray. His beauty is con- cealed by the windshields he wears. He also has the honor of running the best mile in last year’s relay. ALMA ( ' AROLINL AXDLkSOX 1 seen my duty and I done it noble. Alma is one of oiir cjuiet ones. She pushes a peram- bulator one week and helps out the telephone company the other. Otherwise she is rarely seen or heard. WILLIAM BARR My enemies lick the dust Bi 1 has shown this very often at the basket-ball games. He also did good work with the football squad, but unfortunately met with a severe accident which put him out of the game early in the season. CECELIA MARIE BEAUCHEMIX See how she laughs, and crows, and starts!. Heaven blesses the merry child 1 “Shark” usually studies hard, and doesn’t consider recess a time for recreation. If she had made just a little more noise while she has been with us we could write more about her. MILDRED MIRIAM BECKETT. Love me, love my hair. “Beckie” is indeed abrupt, but she is genuine and is a great inspiration to us. Oh, you! 18 FLORENCE MARY BOLAND ’anity of vanities, saith the preacher, all is vanity. Florence is rather tjuiet in school but outside she is not so sedate. She lets nothing trouble her, especially her studies, and tries hard not to let anything trouble others. HERBERT FRANCIS BONNER It takes all kinds to make a world “Kelly’s” shadow is the jockey of the class; he drives an animal (they call it a horse, for want of a better name) around every afternoon. He has a different dame from North Leominster every night. Special student. ROBERT DAVIS BRACKENRIDGE. My guest is knowledge. Bob is of a very studious nature, and doesn’t go in much for athletics, although it is said he could “stand the gaff” if he wanted to. He attends to his own affairs and nobody else’s, and he is always prepared in class. EMILY ELSIE BRIGGS. Thy smile becomes thee well. Emily makes no commotion around the High School, but she is there all right. She was a member of that notorious crowd that accompanied Mary Xmas when she had that personal interview with President Wilson. Some class! 19 ( ' K( ' IL A(; KS BROWN All of Heaven we have below. The (juotation refers to music, of which C ' ecil is one of our best exponents. Her singing in the C ' lass play added much to the excellence of the production. MADELINE ZITA BURLEIGH There is pleasure in poetic pains Which only poets know. Zita is quite impular and w ' as Class secretary in her Ju- nior year. She served on the Red and Gray board also. Ealling in love keejts her rather busy. CATHERINE CECELIA CAHILL. Silence is deep as eternity; speech as shallow ' as time. “Rina” is not inquisitive. She may be a model High School girl but we’d rather cut out the “plugging.” JOHN ROBERT CALDOW. John is just about O. K., even if he does receive all A’s on his reports. His actions are not always up to the standard, however. If you don’t believe this just ask him about that Worcester trip and see how he blushes. Known as one of the “Rah-Rahs.” 20 mm l.KVVIS W A I, LACK ( ' HAMPNKV. His tongue dropped manna. “C ' haiiip” has become famous in si)ite (jf himself, lie is not only an orator, having won the Inlerclass prize speaking contest, but he has become prominent in athle- tics, being captain of the track team. lie was also sec- retary of the School Council. h:LIZABKTlI IIARRIMAN CHASE. .At each stride a mile slie measured. “Lizzie” is as noted for those same strides as for her argumentative powers. She has proved the Waterloo of the Boys’ Debating Cltil) more than once. She is also very industrious, havang done much work on the Class Book. AUSTIN STERLING CHANDLER. I should worry. “Ossie” belongs to the “Don’t-worry Club” and to “Opie’s” notorious course. Studies are the least of his worries, and he considers a day wasted when he doesn’t get “Opie’s” goat. JAMES CONNORS A man of adversity. “B londy” we fear is inclined to be rather lazy, but we think that he has made up his mind to graduate at last. He was one of our star football men and is noted as one of C. T.’s favorites. 21 J I J HHLI :X MARY CONNOR. Gossip cnouKli I iiave heard in sooth Yet, am never the user. Helen is rather j)rini and businesslike and sedate. She has been known to smile l)iit never to laugh aloud. ELIZABETH IRENE CONROY Yet graceful ease and sweetness void of pride Alight hide her faults, if belles had faults to hide. “Cutie ’ has little to say. In fact she spends so much time in WYohvorth’s she has very little time left in which to grow. PHILIP JUSTIN CORLEY. I find nonsense singularly refreshing. Phil, can get by with the least amount of studying better than anybody else in the class. He made a star quarterback on the football team and also won his letter in base ball. We expect he will be a traveling man some day, as he is already accustomed to riding in Pullmans — side door ones. MARY MARGARET COUGHLIN. Gayety is the soul’s health. Mary comes to school chiefly to amuse her friends, but all that is forgiven when it is done at the proper time. She has a cheerful smile and is very good natured. 22 FRANCIS BERNARD C ' RONIN. A man every inch and six feet tall “Hank” is imported from Concord — -not the “jng” hut the town. He was a star end on the football team. He’s on his way to Normal — School. One of the Major’s Spanish Sharks. MILDRED CHENEY C ' ROOKER. Business before pleasure. Mildred has been very busy this year setting a high standard for the rest of us, and writing essays. She won second prize with her Civics essay. MVRTIE CROSIER. Often the smallest packages are the most precious. “Myrtie” is very small, quiet and cheerful. She delights in having her lessons prepared, and attending to her own affairs, which keep her ' ery busy. HENRY FRANCIS CUTTING Here hath he for four long years been in the pursuit of knowledge, a hopeless chase Henry is the most retiring and unobtrusive lad here at school, but that’s not saying he behaves well all the time. We won’t tell all we know about his sprees on the South Skle. How about it, Henry? 23 RUTH INA DAVIS I would rather hear a doK bark at a crow tlian to hear a man swear he loved me. Ruth is very tjuiet in class so vve don’t have much of an oppotrunity to talk about her. She never likes to be late for school because she enjoys the {tleasant hour spent in Room 32 . You’re the exception that proves the rule, Ruth. BERNICE MARY DAY. A girl light hearted and content, I wander through the world. Bernice is a lively one, and is always enjoying life. Her laugh rings out in the silence of the class room and above the din of Room 26. CLARENCE HERBERT DAY. His wit invites you by his looks to come But when you knock it never is at home. “Clarie” doesn’t believe in exerting himself except in the line of foolishness. He says he would like to go to school with the “F ' reshies” so he could sleep all morn- ing. His chief amusement is trying to make the teachers think he is a prodigy of the human race. Don’t despair “Clarie.” f:sther decker She’s a most exquisite lady Esther is quiet in school but outside we don’t know. We have let Esther mind her own affairs, because she always seemed to w ant to. Flard study will never have any visiltle effects on her health. 24 ANTOINETTE ANASTASIE DENOMME Those bewitchin’, bewitchin’ eyes. Marie seems to enjoy tlie east corridor pretty well. She is one of the “Duke’s” friends, hut Shattuck comes in on his share as well as the “Duke.” HARRY DOEIILA. For fools rush in wliere angels fear to tread. “Tarey” tries to impress the lower classmen by as- suming a hustling front, hut he couldn’t even fool the freshies. We expect he will return next year hut you never can tell what he will do next. He was on the Red and (dray hoard also. CHESTER GERARD DONfJVAN. Behold a child by nature’s kindly law, Pleased with a rattle and tickled with a straw “Chet” believes in taking everything just as it comes along, for he never bothers his head (we don’t say his brains) about his lessons. Nevertheless he has a great deal of talent when it comes to making posters. LILLIAN CLAIRE DUNHAM. Reserve is the truest expression of respect toward those who are its object Claire is Doris’s constant companion except when she has company. In spite of her diffidence she is very popular. 25 KI PIIA LA ’()N DUNXH. The most manifest siRii of wisdom is a n. tinned ciieerfulntss. “Kiipheniie” joinetl us in our junior year. She was cereinonioLisly “kidded” by the boys in Room 34. She soon let us know that she was “there” by ccp; ing the Interclass and Interscholastic orize speaking honors. She is noted as haling from Missouri and also for those sparkling eyes. MAY DUXTOX The truest self-respect is not to think of self. We have missed May’s brilliant smile recently, but it is appreciated elsewhere, nevertheless, hhe is noted for her good nature and retiring manner. Special student. RALPH EMERSO.N. I smile for any girl? These quiet, bashful boys are the harces: in the world to write about, but Ralph has conducted 1 imself in a ery commendable way throughout “Opit” Hunter’s Industrial Course, which is a difihcult thing. JOHX IGXATIUS ENRIGHT Where ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be w ' ise. To live up to this standard said person always tries. John endeavors to fool people into trying to make them think he is intelligent and studiously inclined by working in the Public Library adter school. We can’t sicaller that John, so you had better tr .- something new. 26 JAMES MIC HAEL ENRIGHT Tlu man that blushes is not quite a brute. James is John ' s brother. We think James will make a good stump speaker when he’s nominated for Presi- dent, for his voice might be heard throughout the whole Enited States. ERAXKLIN CHARLP:S ETESON. Often the cock loft is empty in those whom nature has built many st ories high. Our elongated friend, “Ezra,” is still with us in spite of P. T. Barnum’s astounding offer to feature him as the “living skeleton.” We are glad he decided to stick for he has proved valuable on the base ball and basket-ball teams. No, .Algernon, he does not use anti-fat. DORIS SIMONDS EAIRBAXKS. Woman is at best a contradiction still. “Lbce” is not what you would term noisy around school, l)ut she seems to have a good time in her own way. We seldom see Doris anywhere without Claire (except when Claire has company) but w ' e trust she makes the most of her time then. (;ladys earxsworth. Birds never limed no secret tushes fear. Gladys is chieffy occupied by her studies. As the result she has done excellent work, as well as writing the music for the Class Song. 27 BASIL (iORDOX FIKLI) In mathcniatics he was greater Than Sycho, Brake or Erra Pater. “Mult” was liked so well by the faculty that they encf)red him his freshman year. He was one of our Thes- pians in “As ' ou Like It, ’’and distinguished himself in the last act. He spends his spare time dealing out missiles at the lunch counter. WILLIAM FITZGERALD A small man but bright withal “Wiilie goes around school with a very aggressi ' e look but he never does any harm. Fie has a charming smile and is a great baseball fan. PAUL FLAHERTY. Devise, wit write, pen! for I am for whole volumes in folio. Paul brought through the Class Book with flying colors. Besides being Vice-President of the Debating Club he was manager of the Track Team this year. He was also Assistant Editor-in-Chief of the Red and Gray. WILLIAM EORBES A lusty athlete am I “Bob” abjured the popular fancy for three years and then bebame famous on the athletic field. He won his letter in basketball and unfortunately sustained a broken ankle in the middle of the season. He also took part in the class play. 28 WILLIAM JOSEPH F()(;ARTV. Li ht lay the earth on Billyhs head His chicken heart’s so tender, Blit build a castle on his head His skull will prop it under. “Duke” has got away with a lot of useless knowl- edge, which in the boorish is “bull. ”He juggles sodas as a pastime. He managed the base ball team (we got four home games.) He can explain satisfactorily (to himself) hov he got that “IV’in English hrst marking. (;eor(;e edward elvnn. Good things come in small packages. “Shrimii” is happy-go-lucky, and is also known as Merry Xmas’ “little friend.” Good kick when you meet the “one” girl. ALFRED LEONHARDT ERAAS Live and take comfort. “Fraasie” never over-exerts himself. We wonder what he would do without his pockets. He has taken such an interest in athletics that he has been able’ to win his letter in base ball. His grin is what makes him famous. JOHN JOSEPH FRANCIS. Much study is a worrier of flesh. John hasn’t been so enthusiastic about studying as might have been, but he’s certainly there on the diamond. He was one ol our best milers last year. 29 HHRTHA FRANK Of manner gentle and affection mild. Hertha is a part-time Commercial student. Her chief occupation is meditating. She never voices her opinions so we don’t know on which side of the fence she stands. NELSON EDWARD GARDINER Although around his bases He strides so v ' ery fast He n’er can make his eight o’clock ' Till twenty minutes past. “Gus” doesn’t believe in starting a minute too soon in the morning, but he’s a hustler, nevertheless He won his letter in football and is one of our best track men. He ' s noted especially for his brilliancy in “Trig.” EDITH FLORENCE GATES Mistress of herself though China fall. Only once did Edith lose her poise and that was when she beheld Josephine, the Skeleton. We cannot blame her for that, “Edie.” ISABELLE MARGARET GEOEERIAN Pains of lov ' e be sweeter far Than all the other pleasures are. “Izzie” is one of our brides. If she takes her course through life just as she has through school, we are sure that wrinkles will never appear. She is fond of ? so that the parlor is occupied every Sunday night. LORETTA MAR(;ARET (ilLLEN Speak low, if you speak love. Loretta (jueered herself when she made that bet with the “Duke.” She belongs to Mary (hishing’s fa- mous fifth hour class and is (jualified at bluffing, but who wouldn’t with Merry Xmas? W ' e hear that it is not the case in her other lessons. KENNETH MILTON (iOODRlCH -Attention makes the genius. “Ken” never disturbes anyone around school, but we don’t know how he is outside. He divides his time between running a store and selling papers. We hear that he may yet be a wireless operator. WILHEMINA GORDON Better be small and shine than to be great and throw a shadow There is nothing more charming than “Minnie’s” smile. She is one of our few gloom chasers, and she fulfills her mission to perfection. WAINO ANDREW GROOP. Industry needs no wish. If this quotation is true then Waino has nothing in the world to want for. He is the pride of the Industrial Course. 31 CllARLHS IIKXKV DAVIS MALL Hk-ssiiiKS on him who first invontecl slocp, And gosh ding him wlio Ijronght about oarly rising “Weary” has taken it pretty easily during his course. He wanted to run the school hut soon found out that nobody cared whether he graduated or not — but him- self. He is usually sick Friday morning till 9 A. M. HAZEL ISABELLE HARRIS. Why don’t the men propose, mamma, why don’t the men propose. Don’t despair, Hazel, this is leap year. If the crowd isn’t suitable here, why there’s Leominster, for instance, where the boys are not so cliquey. RUTH HARTWELL. To know Ruth is to like her But we must all agree That she was made for Roland And not for you and me. “Heartie” is always queen — or at least she thinks she is — at our Class parties — she gives tone, don’t cher know. She jumped into the lime-light with her decollete gowns. HAZEL JOSEPHINE HAWKINS. Civics was her lucky star. Hazel is the pride of Merry Xmas’ classes, and we don’t know what would become of that fifth hour class only for her. Generally she can be found where Athalie is. PlIIl.IP HEFFKRNAN. Music hath clianns to sootlic the savage Ijeast. “Heifer” made his debut one morning accompanied by tlie (dee Club. He is all that his nickname implies, but he has not helped out the coach with his beef. As a forester he was a great success, especially with the “eats.” HFLFN MARY HFSSION. Who to herself is law, no law doth need. Helen is another of our ejuiet ones who thinks chiefly about her marks. She lives “up West” but manages to be on time always. PHILIP CRANF HFSSION. (iood cheer is no hindrance to a good life. From Phil’s size anyone could guess that he doesn’t lie awake nights worrying. He lost a considerable amount of fat training for last year’s relay. FLORENCE EVELYN HICKS. Wise to resolve and patient to perform. Evelyn has proved herself so useful that she has been appointed official duenna of the freshies — whatever that is. She manages to train them in a way that is beautiful to behold i .?3 DONALD BRYANT HIDDEN. ’ery, very like a whale. “Ham” is noted for being the largest in our class. Although encumbered with large feet he is still able to navigate the gridiron with grace delectable to the women and ferocity terrible to the foe. Three cheers for “Boosie.” SELMA LOUISE H0HBER(;ER None but herself can be her parallel. “Slam”is our leading lady in the Class play. Her services are always in demand. She has a sunny disposi- t ion and is an enthusiastic worker in everything. Carl tells us she’s mighty smart. She must be when he falls for it. JOSEPH COOPER HOWARD. He spends his time in studies deep. Here is one of “Opie’s” successfully finished prod- ucts. He is so quiet and makes himself so inconspic- uous that it is hardly possible to write about him. Never- theless, he had brains enough to graduate, and that’s going some. MARY HULDAH HOWE. Boldness, again boldness, ever boldness. We miss thy shining face, Huldah, since you left us. We are not surprised that you were able to pick up so many acquaintances on the Washington trip, but Oh! we pity the chaperone. 33 ERNEST JOSEPH HUMPHREY. “Dutcliy” shoots jkjoI afternoons and mixes soft drinks at night. He distinguished himself as SyU ' ius, a shepherd, in the Class play. He learned to love Pauline pretty mueh during the rehearsals, but HE UP A ARPHA JACKSON. I am rc ' solvccl to stay young until forty. Beulah has l)een here since the Hood, we take it, and the High School will seem incomplete when she leaves — but cheer up, she may take a P. (E course. LOUISE JOHNSON. P ' ew words suffice. Louise is such a quiet little girl we really don’t know much about her, except that she has a very pleasing voice and pretty golden hair. HELEN MARGARET JOYCE. A simple maiden in her flower Is worth a hundred coat-of-arms. “Shorty” is one of our actresses. She is a quiet girl in school, but manages to pay up for it outside. Her pleasing smile has won many friends. 35 WILJO ARMAS JUXM. My hair is white, tliouKli not vvitli aKC. As a miler this husky l)oy is good. Ilis run last year was a success, due perhaps to his training, because he lives up Eleanor Tucker’s way and rides a bicycle to school. HARRY KABATCHNICK. To look like a student is to be one. Daniel Webster has returned to us in the guise of “Cabbage Neck.’’ d ' he horn-rimmed “specs’’ give him quite a studious aspect. As a debater he has no peer. ANNIE GLENNIE KITTREDGE. It is better to be ready and not get there, than to get there not ready.” Although her strides are long Annie never succeeds in reaching school before it begins. She is rather a hap- py-go-lucky person. ' AARNE REIPAS ADDLE KOCK. I flee from a girl’s smiles, as from the Germans. A. R. A. Kock, to be explicit, is bashful. No won- der, since all the girls are interested in him. He was in his glory at Dr. Chalmers’ reception and was very con- versant (to himself, maybe). 36 JOHN Kori’. Time and 1 against any I wo J(jhn belongs to tlic Industrial C’ourse and is a great help to it. He’s a star, botli in sehooi and in the shop. VKRA I live to olease niy.self. is the happy possessor of a little nose that points heavenward — it is a true indieation of her angelic dispo- sition. She made a good page in the play. DELIA LALONDE. You play the spaniel and think with wagging your tongue to win me. Delia is going into Grand Opera. She is so fond of music, but Coffin doesn’t appreciate her ambitions. She is (juiet in school but outside she’s a terror. EDITH S’OPHIA LARSON Bashfulness is an ornament to youth. Edith is so ciiiiet that we hear hardly anything of her outside of the fact that she has pretty hair and a very pleasing manner. PETER SliVIDN LARSON. I’ll improve with age. Let’s hope so, Peter. Peter’s body may be in the High School most of the time, but his mind isn’t — that’s in Gladys’ possession. We wish you luck, Pete. MAIWINA MARIE LEFEBRE French was “pic” to her. There is no one in school who can beat Malvina when it comes to paying Class dues promptly. Know all men by these presents that she is some French shark. ATHALIE MERRIAM LEWIS. “Reddy” is strong on Civics. When she left this spring Mary Cushing’s fifth hour classes average took a decided slump. She’s so closely associated with Ha el that the mention of one name suggests the other. EDWARD LILLY. All great men come from the country. Well, Doc., we expect to see you practicing some day in Shirley, but we believe you can make good as a college “prof” from the looks of your exams. 38 WILLIAM RODNKV LONG. Tis lovo that makes the “arm” ko round. “Rod” has only been one of our esteemed tdass- niates for a year — thank (jod! — but even in that short time we hav e found him to be an all round sport. We would also have people know that he is some orator. He tells us he is going to be a lawyer some day in com- petition with Salny. CECELIA PAULINE MAHONEY. I cliatter the whole day long. “Ma Honey” is certainly there with the chatter. She showed some good sense by graduating wath a class like ours. She spends considerable time explaining in Ci ’ics. BERNARD I NE MASON. .• companion that is cheerful is worth gold. Bernardine is another one of our elongated members, whose chief delight comes when she is arguing. She is considered very witty and her friends greatly enjoy her company. Special student. ANNA MAYNARD. My, how she can talk. Anna is chiefly occupied between arguing with Miss Sherwin and going to P. M. sessions. She played Celia in the Class play, but we are sure she became more sen- timental in the last act than Shakspeare intended, but it wasn’t all your fault, Anna. 39 ! LOriSK ELLEN MK ' ARTV. My chief pleasure lies in my work. Louise has always shown a willingness to do any- thing she was called upon to do, and in this regard she has proved most valuable on the Class Book committee. She is slated for Trinity and indications are that she will go through with honors. MARGARET HELEN McGRATH. E’en though vanquished she could argue still. “Midgy” is one of our blonds who has gone silly over somebody; we hope she will recover. We notice her jaws are in perpetual motion, but she can’t help it, it comes natural. MARIAN MARGARET MeINTOSH. A mighty hunter, and her prey was — man. Marian is a part-time pupil, and we wonder how she can leave “Stan.” Because she belongs to the Beef Trust she is very interested in Civics. ANNIE GENNIE McLEAN. Fame is but a vapor. Annie succeeds very well in keeping herself unknown, but nevertheless we hear from her friends that she is very jolly. -lo FLORENCE MARY McMURRAV. Exceedingly fair she was not; and yet fair In that she never studied to he fairer. “Flossy” is so trustworthy that she is now treasurer of the lunch counter. We don’t wonder that Brockle- nian is doing so well since she is behind the counter. LILY ELIZABETH MATTSON. In every gesture, dignity. Lily has been a very quiet girl during all the time we have known her. We hear that she is a credit to any course and to the school. HELEN REBEKAH METCALF. .• modest maid am I. Helen is extremely shy and modest around here, but we don’t know about it when she’s motoring. She doesn’t do a great deal of talking either. MARY AGNES MICHAELS. (X manners gentle, of affection mild Mary is one of Goodnow- Pearson’s mainstays. She is not noisy but it is said she is there for a good time. She has kept hvr numerous love affairs in the dark. 41 SADIE MILLER. Curly locks, curly locks Wilt thou be mine? Sadie is one of our commercial students. Her tongue is very stubborn and absolutely refuses to keep still. Therefore Sadie has to continually make up P. M.’s when she ought to be sewing shirts for soldiers. That fuzzy hair gets us. BEATRICE FLORENCE MOORE Natural Elorence is liked by all. We see many charming qualities that nature has bestowed upon her. Flor- ence’s usual morning greeting is “Girls, have you heard the latest — it’s positively so-ooo!’’ RUTH LOUISE MOORE. Before my mirror night and day at primping I am busy. Ruthie has broken the record among the girls for P. M . sessions. She made a hit as Audrey in “As you like it’’ but then it came natural. We would advise Ruth to think less of “yours truly.’’ CATHERINE MARY MORAN. Sober, steadfast and demure. “Kitty’’ is one of our English sharks and intends to go to Normal. We think she’ll make a good teacher if she only escapes Cupid. 42 MILDRED EUXICE MORSE. .■ tliousand tears Still overawe when slie appears. Mildred — or Pcrcival as she is more commonly known — knows everyl)od ' elst ' ks business luit her own. She has informeti us that it will be a c|uiet weddiiijj. R. S. — This is leap year. Spt ' cial student. ARCHIE HENDERSON MUIR. His words are trusty heralds to his mind. Archie is a star athlete. He not only got a letter in base ball and football but also made the track team. He beat his man in the hardest mile of last year’s relay. He is keej)ing up the good work at Simonds’. HELM I MARIA MYLLVKANCiAS. She hears merry tales and smiles not. Helmi is the champion sphinx of the class, which you’ll believe when we tell you that she only speaks in Civics w hen necessary. But whatever she has to say is worth hearing ERNEST ASHAEORD NEWCOMBE. It is heavenly to have a giant’s strength. “Newcie” is not only a star mechanic but an athlete also. He showed up well in the Interclass meet and ran one of our best miles last year; we even expect better this year. i 43 icDrrii i.orisic xicwtox. I always dodge the scales. ICdith belongs lo the famous house of Xevvtons, or so we judge from her size. She spends one week in school and one at Morris’. She is always seen with “Pinkie.” FRAXK OSC ' AR XI LULA. My favorite study is girls? “Xick” belongs to that famous fifth hour Senior Civics Class. He’s an expert at bluffing and selling china. JOHX PAUL NOLAX. His bark is worse than his bite. “Pat” has the best soprano voice in the school, al- though he doesn’t use it much. He has helped to pass out the missies at the lunch counter. He did a little bark- ing as Corin in the Class play. He deserves much credit for typewriting about a third of the Class Book material for the printer. STANLEY O’BRIEX Merry as the day is long. “Obie” stands in good with everybody. He’s a bet- ter athlete than scholar. He ran a splendid mile last year. As William in “As You Like It,” he was perfection. Special student. 4-t KLIZABKTH AC ' A’KS ()’( ' ()NN()R To be lov ' cil is all I need And whom I love, 1 love indet ' d. Judging from her tones in school one would imagine her ciuiet, hi.t we know it to he different. She is a ’ery merr ’ girl, and it is this that makes her popular. RUTH O’C ONNOR. Dark hair, dark eyes, not t(Jo dark to be deep. Vet enoiadi to filow with fire when angered. Rut hie minds her owm affairs mostly. She w ' as asked to teach the freshies how ' to sit up in their chairs. We hear she is quite proficient in getting up parties. MARGARET MARY O’DEA. Her conversation had no bitterness Nor her company any tediousness. Margaret is a commercial student one w eek and do- mestic “scientificer” at the lunch counter the next. She is recognized by her beautiful auburn hair. ! EDWARD HENRY O’NEILL. Every man has his fault and modesty is mine. “Ereckles” is one of our “Willies” who is never out after eight thirty at night. He has been very bashful during his four years with us, but still ! li i. 45 HVKRAKI) LKONARI) VM ' .E. TIr- rule of niy lifi- is to make business my pleasure, and pl ' -asure my business. Although not as studious as he should be “Pagey” at times Hashes forth with his quick wit and sometimes captures an “A”. Me is a very industrious worker out- side of school, which is a good excuse lor any fellow’s being stale in his lessons. HAROLD RI INGTOX PARKER. That pretty boy who parts his hair in the middle. “Parkey” was secretary to the historic Glee Club. He is going to Annapolis, and we hope he will return with honors even higher than Major Lowe’s. He got his letter in track and managed the Class play successfully. DOROTHY PARKS. She thinks her set mankind. O! Dorothe-e-e-e, how hard it is to write about your High School days — all your glories, triumphs, spoils, not to omit conquests, are shrunk to this one little meas- ure. Before we part may I not ask you kindly, " Is no- body in this town satisfactory to your tastes.’’ MayTe " Squeak’’ enjoys y our effusiveness. FREDERICK LYMAN PATCH. .• 11 great men are dying and I am feeling ill. Frederick is very studious, does not go out nights, and is a member of the Debating Club. He views life seriously and seldom appreciates a joke, but we may safely say’ that he is Ijecoming somewhat familiar with the girls. 46 VERNP: LOUIS PATENAUDL. Thou art long and lean and lank As is the ribbed sea sands. “Jeff” is the longest drawn out affair in this scIkjoI, which is saying some, when we think of Miss Smith’s spiels. He spends not a little time in that Mitchell Six driving about town. WINIERED FOREST ITLABODY. Her thoughts in lofty rhythm soar. Winifred’s chief hobby is contributing to the Red and Gray. Her contributions to that renowned period- ical have made her quite prominent. AINA MARIA PERA. Lost in the dreary shades of obscu rity. x ' ina has kept out of view so much that it is next to impossible to write about her. She is quiet and dili- gent and her only fault seems to be her backwardness. MARGARET PERAULT. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine. “Tot” is a lively one, both in and out of school, and her engaging personality has won her many friend She attends all the socials, and a Class party would seem in- complete without her. 47 IIAROIJ) IMIKIJ’S He is a mail — that is lie wears pants. “( ' •uss” has won ihc displeasure of all his classniales tor he always has his lessons done about a week in ad- vance. He has, however, managed to get all A’s several times. Noted as the other rah rah boy. OLIVE PINKIIAAI Her air, her manner All who saw admired. “Pinkie” is liked by all of us, because of her never failing good humor. Continue Idnkie. The class of T6 needs plenty of amiable people. HELEN PROCTOR Give they thoughts no tongue. We can hardly call Helen bashful but for some rea- son she dislikes greatly to speak before an audience. Her violin has added one more melody to our beloved orchestra. MARJORIE PROCTER A solemn maid of sober phiz, Who eats her grub and minds her biz. Marjorie doesn’t say very much, but, oh, my! when she does open her mouth how she prattles. She is recog- nized as the little girl with the glasses. 48 MONICA CATIIKRINK gUKiLKV. A perfect woman, nobly planned, To comfort and ccnnmaiid. Monica is rather (]uiet (hiring the week she is with us and we hear that she conducts herself creditably the week she is out. She deserves nitich credit for type- writing most of the material for the Class Book. TllKO LAMB RICK. Mere man descended from foolish monkey. “Teddy” only came here this year but he soon im- pressed us with his nervous and copying manner. You may mean all right, Teddy, btit for I leaven’s sake show others that it’s different. AMY RICHARDSON. % There is nothing lacking in her size. Amy is a “ginger top ” who is very (}uiet. About the only thing we see of her is when she draws up the rear guard in the Assembly Hall every morning. OSCAR EDWARD RINGQUIST. One I love, two I love, three I love, I say. Oscar devotes a little time to study despite the clamor of the fair sex. He is also some athlete, having won the mile in the Interclass Meet. He is bound for Clark and we know he will keep up the good record there. 49 VKKA MAkC ' .ARKT ROCHE. 1 dwell alone in a world of moan. Vera has a smile hut so seldom uses it that we are really surprised when it appears. vShe never makes a pretense at hurrying for she believes that moderation gives life charm. OLIN EDWARD ROBINSON. He mouths his words as a cur mouths a bone. This man, as the quotation states, is i)ossessed of an inconceivable drawl, but for all this he appears to be a plugger and is surely bound to get somewhere in life, perhaps be a great speaker. HELEN MARTI NA RVAN. And like another Helen — fired Troy. To hear Helen recite one might think she was as in- nocent as a lamb, but !!! Her hunting ground is Main street. She can be found there any time of the day or ! LEO FRANCIS RYAN. My heart is true as steel Leo has been a shining example of optimism through- out his whole course, and we cannot but admire his j luck. The athletic teams have never played a home game without their faithful rooter conspicuous on the side lines. We wish you success and happiness throughout your life. 50 PAUL LA VRRN( ' L RVAN. Haste is needful of a desperate ease. “ P()lly”(loesn’t make nuifh of a racket in scliool. After school he juggles books at the Public Library. Al- thotigh he liv ' cs next door he jtist skins in the back door on time mornings. PAULINE CECELIA RVAN. .A little maid but wondrous wise. We nuist admit she has dramatic ability. She fairly teems with cheer; and we hope she will retain her sunny disposition after she becomes a “school inarm.’’ SAMUEL MORRIS SALNY. Shall I go on? Or have I said enough? “Sam’’ is one of our noisy members. He makes his appearance at every debate, trying to convince us that everybody is a fool (but himself). However we give him credit for getting “ads’’ for us. CONSTANCE ELIZABETH SARGENT. I’ll be merry and free, ri! be sad for nobody. “Budd’’ is one of our jolly girls — you never see her without Helen. The attraction seems mutual. “Sonny’’ Whitney donates the flowers. i 51 THOMAS MICHAEL SCAXI.ON, Society is no comfort to one not sociable. Tom is such a quiet lad that vve hear little about him. But we are quite sure that he has done nothing worse than to mind his own affairs. ALBERT AI.EXAXDER SCOTT. He needs must go whom the devil drives. “Scottie” has formed a partnership with “Baron” Eogarty to run the world, and naturally he has no trouble fulfilling his obligation. He spends his spare time chas- ing around town in a “red devil.” THERESA SEELEY. Better three hours late than one minute too soon. Theresa believes this with her whole heart, and makes it the rule of her life. Xevertheless, when she does get there she makes things spin. KATHERIXE MARY SflEA. The glass of fashion The observed of all observers. Kate fell in love when she was a green freshman and has been, faithful to him since. We hear her engagement is to be announced soon. We don’t blame him a bit be- cause she is some classy girl. This coming event ac- counts for her lack of interest in her studies. 52 MAR ' A(ixNKS SllKRUAX. Bright is her faa with smiles And words of welcome and gladness. Mary is tall, and lank, and lean; hut she is certainly one of otir “bright lights,” We notice; that she never fails to show up at the lunch counter. She is bound for Normal School and we ho|)e she will keep up her good work there. DANllCL SIIERHAN Let the world slide. d ' his has been Dan’s motto throughout the course, but he has got b ’ nevertheless. He doesn’t go out for athletics and shows a preference for Meccas. HOWARD HAZKLHURST SHIRREFFS. His knees might be a bit nearer without damage. “Grandpa” was captain of our football and basket- ball teams and he also made good in base ball. He has quite a “rep” at the ’cello and is a great eye-soother among the girls. He stuck to his education like a Trojan. MARIEN LOREND SMITH. How far that little candle throws its beams. Well, Marien sits in 26, but we seldom hear from her. She is, however, a very acceptable addition. Mar- ien and Alma spend merry afternoons pushing a peram- bulator (which means a baby carriage, not a Ford) up Main street. ,53 mar(;akkt smith Wide is the Kulf Ix-twcen me and man. 1 Although Margaret is a steady, sensible girl, she does not see anything worth while in the male element of our class but perhaps sometime in the future she will capture one of her little ones in her school. hHDORA KLIZABETII STAPLES. .A. bonn wee thing “Dora” is a good little girl and she studies a great fleal, but IMiss Stratton is thick and doesn’t understand. Her sole ambition is to be as small as Etta. HENRIETTA LOUISE STAPLES Resembling a guinea egg. Hello, P ' reckles, how’s Etta? Poor “Speck” is in- deed C-sick, but she can’t find a remedy. Her sole am- bition in life is to be as large as Dora. CARL HENRY SPITZER. A sterling son of the Kaiser. Carl is never seen loitering around the school. He is with us one week and is busy the next helping to make h ' itchburg industries famous. If all the Industrial boys were like ( ' arl, Mr. Hunter would be in the seventh Heaven. 54 ( ' .ENKVIKVK MARIK SULLIX ' AN. How brilliant and inirtlilnl the liKht of her eye. (•enevicve is a quiet little girl with a seciuested sphere ()1 her own. She’s a total stranger among the sterner se.y. JOHN jOSKPH TARPV. That same lace ot yours looks like the title pase of a whole volume of roguery. “Red” is “Blondy’s” standby. He is in the Indus- trial Course and one of “Opie” Hunter’s .star mechanics. He dabbled a little in athletics but didn’t go very deep. JEANNIE ESTHER TAIT. Sober, steadfast and demure. Jeannie is all that the quotation says — in school anyway. She is particularly noted for having i)aid her Class dues promptly last year. MAMIE INGEBERG TOEEERI. Fun has no limits. Mamie was rather mischievous when she was with us, and had a well-beaten path to the ofifice. She is in- terested in one of the representatives of last year’s graduating class. 55 JOHN FRAXns TOOMKV. When I speak let my voice be heard Jack, although small, speaks loudly and to the point unless when bluffing, which is not infrequent. But we are glad to say that he is a very bright student when he wishes or when his marks need a boost from the cellar. J.AWREXCK TOWLE. .- rise and shake the hayseed fiom off thee. “Lizzie” is one of our suburl)an members. Me comes down every morning from Westminster witli Carl. A diploma from his home town Lligh School wasn’t re- spectable enough so he came to get an honorable one down here. Special student. LLOYD L. TOWER. . good addition to any class. Lloyd came over from Peppered to get “finished off” and made the football team. He was an alternate in the Lowell district for Annapolis but unhappily just got nosed out. He is ver ’ (piiet and studious, but a fine fellow. Special student. ELEAXOR MAY Tl CKER. Diffused knowledge immortalizes itself. Edeanor has never been known to shirk, whether it be studies or not. As a member of the Class Book com- mittee she has proved indispensable. She is going to one of the colleges this fall where she will, no doubt, in- crease the fame of F. H. S. i 56 ORRA ERVIN UNDRRIIII.L. Just a chip of the old block. Have courage, “Orrie,” all will come out right in the end. We are very interested in our recess prome- nades. We hope your motives are good. RILMA MARION WERNER. .- tiny spirte, yet a merry one. Rilma is our Class baby as she is the youngest one in the class. Nothing ever bothers her in the least and she spends most of her time enjoying herself. My, Rilma, some hyperbole in regard to the hat. ROLAND LEWIS WERNER. Fat paunches have lean pates. “Tub” has taken an easy course while in High School. His middle name is Ruth. He is a football letter man. Between feeding himself and chasing up others he pays the rent of Fairbanks’ Drug Store. PHILIP CARY WHITNEY. Stand back, my name is Governor Whitney. Phil, keeps Constance supplied with flowers for all socials. He takes a pretty liking to them himself most of the time. He is Major’s first lieutenant. 57 I.KO EMIL WHTA. 1 never minRlcd with men.” Leo is not fond of socials and is therefore seldom seen except in the class-rooms. However, to those with whom he is actpiainted, he apj)ears sociable enough. JESSE EVERETT WILSON. Hr who establishes his argument by noise and command sliows that reason is weak. Jesse has become prominent through his debating and his “pro-tem” .secretary’s reports. He left us a short while ago to work in a bank. IDA LOUISE WOOLLACOTT Divinely tall and most divinely fair. Ida is very tall but for some unknown reason this fact seems to be her greatest sorrow. She has fine ability in getting along without letting study trouble her a great deal and seems to enjoy life (in company of certain per- sons.) AOXES ROSE WOODS. “One vast substantial smile. Agnes has proved quite efficient on dance committees, and her ser ices are always in demand. She is noted for her rosy cheeks and broad smile. 58 I HENRY THEODORE WRAY. Not to know me argues youisclf unknown. “Bunny” is in on all the pranks, hut is sincere in class. He plays the bells for the orchestra and organizes a drum corps every time there is a football celebration. The business success of the Class Book is due to him, he being business manager. He is expected to go to “Tech,” where we feel he wall do good w ' ork. ROBERTA ANDREWS WRIGHT. Ever loyal, evertrue To the toil and task she has to do. As a good sport Roberta is par excellence, but as a student she can’t be beat. You can always bank on her for information and when tests draw ' near she is always beseiged by negligent students. Through some delay in receiving the photographs the following pictures were not inserted in their proper places. The editors humbly acknowledge the mistake and beg pardon for this unfortunate error. JOHN PAUL COSTELLO. Too much rest is rust. “Kelly” is one of our farmer boys whose specialty is breaking into the Debating Club’s meetings (also new pipes). Although very quiet he sometimes arouses him- self to great excitement by trailing some Main street “queens.” 59 1 I MARIOX GAY Thus let me live, unsung, unknown. Marion must be either faultless or very obscure, else she would not survive this Chamber of Horrors unscathed. We know little of her except that she has a pleasant dis- position and a pleasing manner. Special student. PAULINE GILLIS The windy satisfaction of the tongue. Pauline is always busy talking, but that’s not all her fault, because she’s a “hello” girl every second week. She is noted for her good nature and her smile. ANNIE LIGOM Little folks should be seen, not heard. Here comes Annie dying into Room 27. Her chief occupation is trying to fish up an excuse for being tardy. She is noted for those attractive waists. CARL SARGENT By heck ! Another one to come to us in September, and a very good one. Carl comes from Westminster every morning, be gosh, with his face and eyes sparkling from the clear country air. He strove valiantly and faithfully through the basket-ball season, and as a second baseman has no peer. Special student. 60 CLASS SONG. Roberta A. Wright Gladys Farnsworth I. Four years the class of ’16 strong Has labored with a will; “With heart and hand’’ we bravely tried Onr duties to fulfill, And as the hour of parting comes, The ties which bound still hold.

Then let us all with humble pride Her honor famed uphold. Three cheers for Alma Mater dear By the Class of Blue and Gold. 61 CLASS HISTORY. {Roberta A. Wright.) As we, the distinguished Class of 1916, look back four years to that memorable day when, as Freshmen, we first entered upon school life, and as we gaze upon those who have taken our places, we can forgive the bewildering grins which so often greeted us years ago. But in spite of the bashfulness of some of us and the boldness of the rest of us we did succeed in making ourselves useful and (we must be truth- ful) ornamental as well, for our display on Class Day was such as to ex- cite the admiration of everyone (ourselves included.) We immediately began to display our athletic ability by the high position we had gained in sports by the end of the first year. During the summer months we had ample time to recuperate from our strenuous labors, and when we returned in September as Sopho- mores, we were ready to plunge again into trials similar to those of our Freshman year. But strange to say, we had no more trials, for those dreadful Seniors were gone and we were Freshmen no longer. We had no class dues to worry about and no class officers to elect In fact, our only duty seemed to be to keep our desks clean. By our Junior year we became an absolute necessity to the school. We furnished nearly all of the material for the athletic teams. At the beginning of the year we elected our class officers and chose our class pins. We very appropriately selected blue and gold for our class colors, 63 upon the realization that we were the fiftieth elass of tlie Fitclibnrg High Sehool. In prize s])eaking we carried off one Interclass and one Interschol- astic prize. Onr musical abili ty was so well a])preciated that we were invited to sing at the matinee of the Choral Society, and we were so successful that the inxitation was repeated during onr Senior year with ccinal, if not greater, success. In onr Junior year we organized a Boys’ Del)ating Cdnb and during onr Senior year we added a Girls’ Debating Club and a Boys’ Cdee Club. Once more we furnished nearly all the material for the athletic teams and we reaped victory on every side. In prize speaking we again carried off one of the prizes. Onr nnusnal dramatic ability made it possible for ns to present with nncinestionable success one of Shakespeare’s most well-known plays, “As Yon Like It.” During onr last two years we successfully carried through several class parties, among which, not of the least importance, was our Junior re- ception to the Seniors. We also enjoyed a reception given by the Super- intendent of Schools at his home in honor of our “illustrious” class. And as we leave the dear old High School, to which we have brought such honor, we can only wish that the classes following may attain, in some degree at least, the position of fame in school spirit, scholarship, music, dramatics and athletics, which this, the fiftieth class, has enjoyed. f)4 SEPTEMBER 7.

One of the most successful school nights in the history of the school was held Friday, October 15, when Dr. Albert Parker Fitch, president of the Andover Theological seminary of Harvard University, and speaker at the annual commencement exercises last June, was the principal speaker of the occasion. The speaker characterized the present age as a serious one, to be taken seriously by the younger generation, who must solve the ])roblems of life. He said that the Furopean war would create an era of recon- struction, which the youth of the entire world would be called ui)on to share, for the problems which must l)e solved for the good of the human race, will confront those who have accpiired the knowledge through proper training and special preparation. The other speakers were Dr. Chalmers, Mr. Goodrich, Dr. McMur- ray, Carl Holloran, president of the Senior Class, and Joseph G. Fdgcrly. The program was followed by cheers and class yells which demon- strated the enthusiastic spirit of the school. First Senior Class Party. The First Senior Class Party was held Thanksgiving night at Wallace Hall. The menbers of the committee in charge were Herbert Driscoll, chairman, Agnes Woods, Doris Fairbanks, Bernice Day, Lewis Champney, Stanley O’Brien and Clarence Day. Red and Gray Night. Red and Gray night is something new in our school and was made possible by a vote of the board of editors of the “Red and Gray’’ to an- nually lay aside fifty dollars for the purpose of holding a social gather- ing for the members of the school and their friends. This year’s Red and Gray Night was indeed a success and was attended by a large number of the student body. Dr. Charles Eastman, the noted Indian, was the speaker of the evening and he held his audience for two hours by his magnetic power. His topic was the democracy of the early American Indian. Fie ridi- 73 culccl the idea that our democracy is perfect by his skillful comparison of what he called the true democracy of the Indian. After the lecture Dr. Kastman stood in the corridor and shook hands with everyone who wished to make his accjuaintance. Senior Night. This year Senior Night was a very informal gathering given for the seniors and their parents by the faculty, in place of the usual recept- tion. The entertainment was a musical program given by different members of the school, and was enjoyed by everyone present. Lambda Sigma Dance. The Zeta Chapter of the Lambda Sigma held its annual reception and dancing party in Wallace Hall Monday evening, December 27th. There was a reception at 8.30 and dancing continued from nine o’clock until one. Music was furnished by Wilson’s orchestra. The committee in charge were Howard Shirreffs, chairman, Clar- ence Day and Davis Hall. Newman Club Dance. The tenth annual party of the Newman Club was conducted in Wallace Hall Thursday evening, December 30th. The hall was very prettily decorated with palms, and over the stage hung a large silk banner, the emblem of the society. Dancing was enjoyed throughout the evening, music being furnished by the Toy Town Tavern team. Interscbolastic Prize Spesking. The Interscholastic Prize Speaking Contest, in which Fitchburg, Gardner, Leominster, Clinton and Orange were represented, took place Friday, May 26, 1916, at eight o’clock, in the High School assembly hall at Leominster. Fitchburg was represented by Lewis Champney, ’16, and Irene P. Goodwin, ’17. Roger Beedle, Leominster, won first prize for the boys, and Francis Arthur Leach, of Orange, won second. For the girls Miss Adele Whit- ney French, also of Orange, won the first prize, and Miss lola Guennette, of Leominster, won the second prize. Zeta Pbi Dance. The Zeta Phi Fraternity held its annual party and reception Friday evening, December 31st, in Wallace Hall. The hall was adorned with palms and a large emblem of the society. A very pleasing novelty was 74 introduced at midnight when, during the moonlight waltz and on the stroke of twelve, a large emblem of the society was unfurled and the numerals 1915 changed to 1916. Music was provided by E. Percival Coleman and Mr. Raymond from Toy Town Tavern. Junior Class Party. The Junior Class Party was held March 3rd in Wallace Hall, which was decorated for the occasion with class colors and flowers. Music by the Toy Town Tavern team was in progress from eight until eleven. The chaperones were Dr. and Mrs. James Chalmers and Mr. and Mrs. John Howarth. Interclass Prize Speaking Contest. The annual Interclass Prize Speaking C ' ontest was held on Friday, April 14th, in the High School assembly hall. Those representing the Senior Class were Oscar Ringquist, Lewis Champney, Philip Corley and Samuel Salny. Those from the Junior ( ' lass were Irene Goodwin, Hester Parks and Beatrice Greene. The prize winners were Lewis Champney of the Senior Class, who gave impersonations, “Tony Pleads to Petit Larceny,’’ and Irene Goodwin of the Junior Class, “The Stolen Bridegroom.’’ The High School orchestra provided music during the evening. Reception at Dr. Chalmers’. The “illustrious’’ Class of 1916 was entertained at Dr. Chalmer’s home on April 28th. We feel quite honored, for 1916 is the first class which has been entertained by a Superintendent of Schools. A very informal reception was held from seven thirty until eight after which various games were played. .--Later in the evening very appetizing re- freshments were served. The event proved to be a great success and we hope 1917 will be as fortunate. Second Senior Class Party. The Second Senior Class Party was held in Wallace Hall Monday evening. May 1st. Music was provided by E. Percival Coleman as- sisted by Mr. Raymond of Toy Town Tavern. During one of the dances a shower of roses came down from the gallery upon the dancers.

The Senior ( ' lass were entertained by the Junior Class at a recep- tion on June 16 th in the High School assembly hall. A short farce, “( ' hums,” was j resented by the entertaining class.

S. is to be congratulated on having had the services of such a competent athletic instructor, in the past few years, as Mr. Amiott. Not only has he been successful in turning out winning teams, having won all but one championship during his regime, but by his un- tailing courtesy and deep interest in his work commands respect and highest regard of the entire student body. It is safe to say that every student who has worked under Mr. Amiott will leave the school with a higher regard for clean athletics and true sportsmanship, because of his example and influence. The present high standing of the school in athletics is due more than anything else to the efforts and skill of Mr. Amiott. Our best wishes to a larger measure of success in the years to come. 8.S FOOTBALL TEAM FOOTBALL Starting the season with tlie fast K x‘rett eleven, the football team met its only defeat of the season. The score was 44 to 0, but this docs not seem so bad when it is known that hve of the men who started the game had never ])layed football before. I ' he next game was played in Ashbnrnham with the (dishing Academy Second Team as opponents and the team brought home a 21 to 6 victory. On Oolumbus Day the team went to Leominster and met her old rival. Although we were successful in winning the game, the team showed the lack of “pcp’’ probably due to our over-confidence. The Gardner team came to Fitch- burg on the next Saturday with 150 rooters. The teams appeared i:)rctty evenly matched and the game ended without either team scoring. The Winthrop team next came to Fitchburg with a reputation of not having lost a game. The Fitchburg team played one of the best games of the season and defeated them by the score of 16 to 0. On the following Saturday F. H. S. added another victory over the larger and heavier Lawrence Academy eleven. Score, F. H. S.. 28, Lawrence Academy, 0. The Concord High School team next came to Fitchburg and were forced to go home defeated 14 to 0. The next game was with Gardner at Gardner. Fitchburg proved itself to l e the better team and won by a score of 7 to 0. This game won the Wachusett Interscholastic Cham- pionship for the school. The team continued its winning streak by defeating the Shirley Industrial team 16 to 3. The last game of the season was played on Thanksgiving Day with Leominster. The Fitch- burg team showed its superiority in every department of the game, and Leominster didn’t have a chance. Score, Fitchburg, 62, Leominster, 0. This season will go down in history as one of the most successful as the team lost only one game and tied one. At the close of the season the letter men got together and elected Harold Shumway ’17 as Captain of next year’s team. 87 Schedule and Scores SeptcMiibcM ' 25, ( )ct()l)er 7, ()rt()l)er 12, October 16, ()ctober 23, October 30, Noveniber 6, November 13, November 20, November 25, " (iames played ii Connors r. e.

This was not clue, however, to inferior instruction or lack of interest on the part of the coach, Inil to lack of interest and material from the school. The team lost the Wachusett Interscholastic League Championship for the first time in two years. Much credit is due the second team for its pluck and ability.

Fitchburg won the Wachusett Interscholastic League pennant, and also took care of everything else that came her way. The team ran points remarkably well and kept those of its opponents at a minimum. School support was not up to standard and material was lacking, nevertheless Coach Amiott whipped together a champion aggregation from scarcely a hand- ful to choose from. Even more remarkable is the record when we realize that all but four of the thirteen games scheduled were played out of town. By defeating Worcester South High, Fitchburg was admitted the champions of Worcester County and also has a chance of becoming state champion contestants.

This is generally attributed lo the fact that less interest was shown in this branch of sport, especially at the Interclass Meet, and to the fact that a late start, poor weather and a lack of candidates, proved exceedingly trying to the coaches. The Seniors won the Interclass Meet on May 26 th by a small margin, being sorely pressed l)y the Juniors. The summary is given below: 100 Yard Dash — Won by Davis ’17; 2(1, Day 16; 2(1, Rice ’17.

Fitchburg, Gardner and Leominster were the competing teams. The meet w as run off with clock-like consistency and proved to be the most exciting and thrilling event of the athletic year. BecaUvSe of a few technicalities Fitchburg was nosed out of a vic- tory which it should have had by right, and had to be content with sharing first honors with Leominster. It was nip and tuck be- tween these two teams up to the last event, the Senior relay race, when ]ooints stood 393 to 393 . The relay race would settle it. The race proved the most exciting event in the uieet and Fitchburg gained the tape hardly more than a yard behind Leominster. Captain Leamy of Leominster then raised a protest, saying that Davis of Fitchburg had ‘ ' fouled” him, and although apparently un- founded, the relay was thrown oiu in summing up the points and Fitchburg remained tied with Leominster, despite the winning of the relay race.

Clarence I3ay and Harry Doehla were meandering dowm Main street t’other day when Day let his ])ee])- ers fall on a rather fair representative of “Lit- tle Canada.” “Some kid,” said Day to Doehla (so said dame could hear) “Ya,” re- plied VTeary,” ”How are you chick?” The queen in ques- tion looked daggers at them and blew by like she was in a hurry, soon a Cop hailed them and led the Grand March to the kennels. The Captain said they were repotred by the cold hearted dam- vsel. After throwing the bull he sent them home, saying it would cost them ten iron men and hard tack for a week next time. SERIOUS MISSHAP “Porky” Appears in Church in a Peek=a=boo; Horrible Details be= low. Mr. C ' harles Kd- mands api)eared in the choir in church last Sunday without a col- lar or tie. He was quietly but ceremon iously conducted from his coveted seat before the congregation to an anteroom where one of our worthy mem- bers lent him a sun- burst cravat and hold- er. “Pop” resumed his former position and gave us a fairly good presentation of his No., considering that his collar might have been a bit larger. The kind martyr who do- nated the halter and apparatus retreated to his own domicile and concluded his services for the day. THE HYDRO- PHOBIA CLUB DEBATES At the meeting of I the Hydrophobia (dub Monday afternoon a very enjoyable even- ing was had. The sub ject for debate was. “Resol.ved, that the Faculty should be shot rather than to be let suffer.” The affirmative side won, as its exponents unexpectedly debated on the same side. Both teams were much applauded. “Sam” Salny. leader of the “Yess’s said, “As the high cost of living is so great, somebody got to fac- ulty.” Next week’s debate is, “Resolved, that the lunch counter should give trading stamps.” Fitchburg, Mass., June 26, 1916 THE SPASM Piihlished whenever the EDITORS ARE seized with St. Vitus Da nee.

Interest on money deposited in a Bank can be truly regarded as the wages that money earns. Therefore, do not forget that the dollar wasted often draws other dollars after it — while the dollar you pass over the counter of this Bank is saved and begins at once to earn another dollar. We should be pleased to have each member of the Class of 1916 be- come a depositor in this Bank. SI. 00 opens an account and draws Compound Interest.
