BROWN TO OUR ESTEEMED FRIEND AND ADVISOR MISS ALICE WEBBER BROWN WE, THE CLASS OF 1920 RESPECTFULLY DEDICATE THIS BOOK BOARD OF EDITORS GEORGE LLEWELLYN SHEPARD, Editor-in-CItiej RICHARD EDWIN WESTON, Business Manager BEATRICE CUNNINGHAM NORMAN W. CHURCHILL RUTH JOHNSTOxN HARRY W. DUGLTD ALICE L. PHELPS ALFRED P. HOBBS ELIZABETH M. QUINN WILMER H. GOFF MADELINE D. WHITNEY ALBERT S. LAWRENCE URO C. BOURGAULT HAROLD A. PAGE THO.MAS P. SHEA FOREWORD It is our endeavor to set forth in the pages of this book the deeds and words of those who go to make up this, the one and only, Class of 1920. t ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The editors owe much to those outside the board who, by their con- tributions, have helped to make this book a success. IX GENERAL Miss Alice W. Brown, Mr. James M. McNamara, Miss Anna E. Dunn, IMr. William H. Dooling, and others in the faculty who have given their time and aid in bringing about the high standards of the book. CLASS OFFICERS HARRY DUGUID Class President. Harry is our class president, a splendid one he makes, too, for he is most popular with all of his classmates. He played his role well in the class play, as the sweetheart of iMiss Rogers; but then Harry has a weakness and a particular liking for quite a few girls, shown by his rivalship with IMr. Weston in that Junior affair. Even that isn’t forgotten yet. As for dancing? Oh, yes, it is his cure for an overtaxed brain (the strain being caused by too much conscientious study??? No, by the flu). xMILDRED COLEMAN “A mighty hunter ami her prey was — man.” ' ice-president of Class. Natural. Milly has been our vice-president for two years, and we couldn’t sail our ship without her. She certainly puts “pep” in everything she does. She is popular with all and she has been known to have “several” admirers. We once heard this remark: “Milly, you’re the only girl for me,” but we won’t say who, what, when, or where. IMilly always makes a good time better, and by the way she is some dancer. She doesn’t believe in letting her studies trouble. . s a “star,” she made her debut in “Never- theless.” Noted for her coiffure. STELLA CUSHING “.Mways work before pleasure.” Class Secretary. Editor-in-chief of the Red and Gray. Stella has been our secretary for two years and has served well on the Red and Gray board. She has always succeeded in drawing the . ’s and for that reason we look up to her. She received first prizes for her essays on Thrift and on Music. Although she is a Latin shark she manages to help us entertain our beloved W. J. D. Stella is always enthusiastic and ready to help out in any undertaking. Noted for being dignified — sometimes. We doff our hats to her. HERl’.ERT MADDEN Class Treasurer. Herbert has served us as treasurer for two years, and we couldn’t ask for a better one. He is quite an athlete in baseball, also football. He is, also, popular with all — yes, even the girls. Study seems never to worry him, although we can see he is some- times in trouble with . nnie over his daily recitations. Noted for his pleasant smile, his Civics ability, and tr dng to live at the central. Dorotliy 1’. Aiiik-rson Luella 1. Aliola acoii Ralph A. Ucaurc-j ard awrciice larncrc Cecil 1). Ik-audrault Lena li Andrew AI. Ilonnallie Arthur 1. IJernicr 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK 13 LUELLA IMPI AHOLA “Give thy thoughts no tongue.” Luella is really not Itashful, but we do not hear her say much a: one time. She is one of Goodnow- Pearson’s mainstays. Two Itlondes seem to agree well, at that. How aljout it? Noted for her constancy to Pilly. DOROTHY PRISCILLA ANDERSON " E’en though vanquished she could argue still.” " Dot " is one of our good sports, always ready for a good time. Still we should advise anyone not to start an argument, as they would surel} ' gel beaten. She is quite a follower of all the athletic games, especially football. W ' e wonder who " Red” is we hear about. MARY ELIZABETH BACON “Often the smallest packages are the most precious.” Treasurer of the Classical Club. W e’ve known Mary for four years and she has always been the same. At recess she is either getting a " good " Latin translation, or collecting class dues. From the expression on her face, we have decided that she is not over delighted with the job. No, we won ' t tell you what Air. Dooling calls her. It’s " horribile dictu.” Noted for that attempted curl. LAW RENCE ANDREW’ BARRIERE “Oh grave and somber manl” Barriere does not engage in the great exercise of talking, unless it is absolutely necessary. He divides his time with Mr. Pearson and his studies. Lately he has been seen at Crocker Field, so he ought to make good on the relay team. Noted for above track ability. ARTHUR JOSEPH BERNIER “Fleet of foot, and light of heart.” ■Arthur is one of our regular guys. He is speedy all around, on the track and off. He sure does great work on that 220 of his but Sumner L. could beat him on a half (so coach says). He manages to get in some good work in school and is famous for being " our richest councilor.” You know him — he parts his hair in the middle. ALICE MARGUERITE BOLLES Marguerite is one of that famous sixth hour civics class. She came from Leominster this year so we will excuse her for " cutting up.” She says she is going to take up nursing, but really. Mar- guerite, why? Noted for that " dark look.” CECILE DOLORES BEAUDRAULT “A modest maid am it.” President of the Cercle Framjais. Treasurer of the Spanish Club. -Although Cecile is modest, she sees the good s ide of everything and is always ready with a smile. She is conscientious in all her studies and we are certain that she will meet with success in later life. She always has a smile for Elna. Noted for her French ability. RALPH ALBERT BEAUREGARD “When I ope my lips let no dog barki” Ralph is some boy 1 As an actor and as an orator, he can’t be beat and has already his name famous in the class play — as our hero. He doesn ' t slight the girls in school but his heart belongs to another outside. Can he dance? He has the original Alemphis jazz swing! Oh, yes, Duffy is an athlete, loo, but don’t ever ask him to master French verbs. Noted for his jazz step. ETHEL M.AE BEER “Come day, go day, God send Sunday.” — Captain of the basket ball I ' eam Ethel is a believer in that saying, " better late than never,” and she lived up to her belief during her Junior year quite frequently. She has a fine sense of humor, but why not, after associating with the Harkonen twins? Ethel admits that " it” isn’t at all in vogue now. Noted for being a strong temperance believer. LENA ERNESTINE B.AUMAN “Xor bold, nor shy, nor short, nor tall, But a new mingling of them all.” Lena can enjoy a good time but is slow at sug- gesting any. .Always willing to help whenever she can without saying too much is her motto. She used to run a coal office long ago, but it soon grew to be a sort of club house for many people. Of late we ha en’t heard much from her, so we take it she is putting in some hard work. Noted for those " Baby Eyes.” ■ANDREW MILLER BONN.ALLIE “Attention makes the genius.” He doesn’t bother us much in school, but no telling what he does outside. He hopes to get his letter in baseball and maybe some day play for a real team. He is no lady’s man, but is not bashful, which adds further to our suspicion that he is not always " impossible.” cssie I ,. I’raziiT loiir diaries W. C ' alilwell Cicnnule A. Cahill Marv M. Clancy Leoiiie hi. Cardinal Xorhian W. Churchill 1 9 2 0 CLASS -BOOK 15 URO CLEMENT ROURGAULT O. U. C., or " Boy,” as he is often called, is a big liit with tlie femininity of the class, especially with . He is the Ham Artist in these parts and among his many drawings are those in the class hook. Uro is on the track most every day, so maybe he will surprise us. Noted for his " Luckies” and his relay team work. ED V. RI) TNCENT BRADY “Those eyes, those bewitching eyesi” " Ed " is one of our heart-breakers. He hates to be still a minute, so is trying to run the school bank. He used to weigh tea and coffee m one of our lead- ing stores. Noted for his great interest in the girls. JESSIE LOUISE BRAZIER “I’ll be merry and free I’ll be sad for nobody.” “J” is everybody’s friend. It hasn ' t taken us four years to lind out what she likes. Best of all she likes Priscilla and we are in doubt of who comes ne.xt. Jessie is not over fond of study, but she gets on just the same. Noted for that everlasting giggle and those " bangs.” THERESA EXILDA BUJOLl) ■ ' Why don ' t I grow?” Although rather small, Theresa always has enough to say after she gets started. She seems to divide her interest among her studies, the Associated Charities, and Paul. Noted for her frizzly hair. GERTRUDE AGNES CAHILL “.Measures, r.ol men, have always been my mark.” Gertie is one of our Latin sharks, or at least she thinks she is. Other than that she is quiet and subdued. She must think a lot, as the opposite sex holds no charms for her. We wonder. Noted for that quiet manner and unassuming air. CHARLES WELLINGTON CALDWELL " I ass him not, who seems a saint.” President of E. H. S. Bank. We know that Charlie is right there when there’s any fun going on. When not in school, he is man- aging the Fitchburg Gas Electric Light Co. Charlie always gets his hair cut at Pepin ' s and is quite a booster for him. Noted for that cheerful grin and those wind- shields. MAX SAMUEL CAPLAN “Crab and the world crabs with you.” " Nosey” lives up to the above motto with ease. He is one of the tight members of the class, so tight that . Well ask anyone, they know. He is generally very busy though, and means well ; hut please explain to M. C. S. yourself. Max. With good luck he oughl to make a good member of the •A. P. Tea Store. LEONIE ELSIE CARDINAL “Her voice was ever soft, gentle, and low.” Leonie comes from down South, which perhajis accounts for her dusky complexion, hut surely not her silence. She is one of those sixth hour Civics sharks, and comes in for some fun. Her reports seem to average high, so we must give her some credit. PHILIP GERALD CASHxMAN “Worry ne’er did man good.” " Phil " is life around this place, no wonder. He comes from the’ section where things are always happening. He causes more excitement in school than the whole Junior class, and when he is with Roger things sure begin to pop. Noted for that melodious laugh which is heard from all around. NORMAN WINSTON CHURCHILL “Brains he has XIXI ! !” As far as brains, books, and studying go, “Alutt” is a nc.gative quantity. When he is with the fair se.x, however, he is IGO per cent efficient. Mutt has many other interesting accomplishments and they follow : Editor-in-chief of the Math class Spasm ; h ' oreman, Kennedy’s Butter Foundry ; Second to none in jazz; and lastly, one of M. C. S.’s favorites. Noted for that sheepish grin and that fluent flow of foolishness. MARY MADELINE CLANCY " A maiden fair, with shining hair.’ ' Madeline is one of the quiet members of our class, so quiet in fact she is hardly ever heard from, even in Miss Ordung’s classes. M e hear, however, that Miss Smith and she are quite antagonistic. Noted for her “A’s” and her assortment of hair ribbons. 1 17 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK ELOISE MINERVA CLARK There is no limit to fun. Eloise is well endowed with “pep” and incidentally she knows the way to the office. She is one of the many who seek revenge on most of our teachers. We know a lot more about her, even her age, but we won’t tell. We hear that she jars on M. C. S.’s nerves, but as long as Eloise doesn’t care we don’t. What about that trip to Washington, and especially on the boat? Noted for her high ideal (?) MILDRED DOROTHEA CLARK “Stand back, please!” Mildred is another lively member of our noble class, and we imagine tha ' t she tears around out- side somewhat. As a junior she spent a good part of her time pulling teeth, or rather collecting class dues. Lately she has been endeavoring to put Jack- son out of business. Noted for her ability in managing the affairs of 1920, her attempt at basket ball, and her rapid fire debates. OSCAR ERNEST COLLINS “Society is a comfort to one who is not sociable.” This fits Oscar to a “T,” as the saying goes. He is another of the bunch that sees Annie the first hour and M. C. S. the sixth. He doesn’t mind, however, for he and Lane manage to get by without any trouble. He used to peddle papers once, but his big brother took the job away from him. Noted as a coming star in track and for those oral reports in Civics. GENEMEVE MAGDALAN CONLON “Pass her not, who seems a saint.” Genevieve is everybody’s friend and we all like her. She is different from most girls inasmuch as she does not use her tongue excessively. Her con- science is so prickly that it will not allow her to shirk studying, therefore she is smart. She is a hearty supporter of the excellent reputation of W. J. D.’s irgil class. A good sport, for she never lets candy pass her in the Latin class. Noted for her quietness. HARRIET MAE CROSSLEY “Before my mirror night and day, .At primping I am busy.” Harriet seems to be rather quiet around here, but we know a different story. Her attractions are all outside of school and we advise her to think less of “yours truly.” How about it, Harry? She can be very pleasing if she wants to, and sometimes we give her credit for it. She is not half bad at having a good time. Noted for her waves and cool outward manner. PAUL JOSEPH CORCORAN “I’m a har-r-rd guy!” “Kloby” has indeed gone to the bad of late. He stays out after eight o’clock at night ’n’ everything. It is even rumored that he has been seen smoking Cubebs. Such a state of affairs ! He certainly did great work for us, though, in the Class Play and he is also able to get along with his lessons. Noted for the “pull” he has with the faculty. SARAH LOUISE CORLISS “Just a little girl, not bigger than a doll.” W ' e only see “Lou” every other week, so cannot judge from appearances. She believes in a little study which perhaps accounts for her commercia ' abilit} ' and her “A’s.” Of late she is another quiet one, but “you never can tell.” Noted for her small voice, her constancy to " Willy,” and her sister Helen. HELEN ELIZABETH CORLISS “My favorite study is boys.” Helen seems to indulge greatly in the above- mentioned study. You’d think so when you see the smile she gives them. Helen is seen quite frequently with — er Connie. We wonder if it is serious? No, it can’t be, for she is thinking of going to Normal next year. Noted for her popularity at Jackson’s ■ and her sister Louise. ALBERT FERDINAND COSSETTE “Honest labor bears a lovely face.” " Al” is one of our independent industrial sharks. He seems to run things with Billy Hunter but it doesn ' t mean very much. He is planning on college next year. Good luck, Al. Noted for having perfect attendance for four years. MARY KATHRYN CRONIN " Kate” is a hlonde, but rumor has it that Patsy likes blondes, so she has nothing to worry over. We hear that she is taking up law and will soon be the coming female lawyer of the country. Warning — Katherine, don’t let M. C. S. hear of this, or she will give you some of her ideas on running the U. S. She is also great pals with Miss Ordung, as shown by their close intimacy at recess. Favorite expression, “Gentlemen of the Jury.” Noted for her “backwardness.” LUKE AUGUSTINE CONRY “Hang Sorrow! Care will kill a cat And therefore let’s be merry.” Luke is our prominent pool player. He is surely related to Willie Hoppe or how does he get that way? We won’t say much but he sure admires one of the fair sex in the sophomore class. Long way home when you miss the last car, eh ? Noted for his ability to run the Sentinel. I Beatrice Cuiiniiigliam 1 cresa M. Crowlev Helen J. Dacev William F. Doolim Waino Fniiolm rancis Hilda 1 Fl ' vennan er Phyllis C. Farrar Merton E. Fraser Laura L. Ferguson Philip Ficgar I 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK 19 TERESA MARION CROWLEY “Let the world slide, what care I?” Theresa is kept liusy gi)ing ' to the office every morning to see Miss Chase. . s a liookkeeping shark she is there, l)ut somehow we fear there is a tall, fair Junior that helps her a lot. She is a great mo ie enthusiast ami she doesn ' t always go alone. Noted for her walk. B E A T R I C E C L ' N N 1 N t; 1 1 A M “A little lovely girl, most dear and taking.” Bea is going to he someone ' s sweet stenographer some day, and that someone will be e.xceptionally lucky. She has dark brown eyes that laugh con- tinuously, as well as a smile that is always lurking round the corners of her mouth — and oh ! those diiiit ' .(s. But she will never grow tired of life as long as dancing is in vogue, for " Bea” is a real dancer. Noted for her " baby smile” and fondness for dancing. HELEN JANE 1). CE ■ “To frown is as easy as to smile.” Helen seems always to be in a business-like rush v henever you meet her, but we ha e known her to get stalled in a corner by ? She is quite a biology shark and some day may be a second Hoc. Howarth. Noted for her " Specs.” WILLIA.M FRANCIS DOOLING “And like a Camel he stretches forth his neck to behold the surrounding countryside.” ‘‘Camel,” the her(nc buck private of our class, is certainly one of the best of Joe Fine ' s “57 varieties.” Incidentally he has thrown a good line to M. C. S. all year and has got away with it. We must admit, however, that a guy must be clever to pull an " A” from Jimmy Mac. " illiam” is also one of our best in theatricals, being a huge success in the Class Play. Noted as a great e.xponent of " Mississippi Mar- bles.” LAURA LUCINDA FERGUSON “Her hair is rolled in many a curious fret Much like a curious coronet.” Laura is sure one of our active members. Ask anyone in the si.xlh hour Civics class. They all know. She is right there when it comes to a good time and can also pitch a baseball " right over” every time. She made a hit at the Class Party, at least some- one thought so, but we won ' t say who. She works occasionally for Doc. Lamere keeping office and the rest of the time is spent “down on the farm.” Noted for those “fish hooks.” WAINO ENHOLM “Vessels larse may venture more. Hut little boats should keep near shore.” This above saying does not hit " Skinny” as he is one of our hig memhers. He is our athlete, being captain of the football team and a star man in basket- ball. He also has enough wind to play a cornet and announce football games. Noted for those “slang expressions " used on the platform and his dominating character. PHYLLIS CHRISTINE FARRAR “She hath a natural wise sincerity.” Phyllis is one of our Shirley girls. She is a ■Spanish shark and therefore one of the Major’s fatorites. It would seem sometimes as though she believed that " little girls should be seen and not heard,” but we know that this is not always true. She is (luite patriotic, for we know she did quite a lot of entertaining when Devens was occupied. Noted for her rosy blush. PHILIP FIEGAR " Phil” is a member of the trio but is very silent. He should divide with the others; Max needs some of it. We hear that he is going to school next year but just where is still not decided. Noted for being quiet. MERTON ELWIN FRASER “Speech is silver, silence is golden.” Morton believes in that little (juotation, “Chil- dren should be seen and not heard.” In fact, we have to look around the classroom to see if he is really with us. He is here only alternate weeks, so why pick on him? Noted for his business-like conduct. FRANCIS JOSEPH DWYER “His voice is ever the same — a deep monotone.” " Hash-house” is generally with " Mutt” and when together they are at I ' rederick ' s. He is in Simonds’ just now studying saws — and girls. He can get away with his studies and dtince at the same time, so why worry over him? Noted for his " .Specs.” HILDA ELIZABETH EFVERMAN “Divinely tall and most divinely fair.” Hilda used to be with us all the time hut now she is running some business up West. She doesn’t ex- ercise her lung itower much in school but simply stares tbrough those windshields of hers. What abotit the Hostess House at Ayer? Well, she was engaged in war relief work once. •aj non losephiiie Fulda Albert Cicorge ’iola Al. Gibbs Mary Grout U ' iltner II, Goff Margaret I. Hassett Clarice E. Gwvnne Tf)ivo A. Haiinula Miriam Haapaiiiemi 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK 21 JOSEPHINE EULDA " Joe " is sure a heart-breaker. She always likes to make long orations for Miss Stratton. We see her in communication with sttmeone and we fear results, hut still it doesn ' t bother her any. She rims around as, if she owned the p ace; cheer up, you may he a schoolmarm here some day. Noted for that giggle and those eyes. LILA MAE OAGNON steady buzz, buzz, buzz.” She loves to talk hut is just as merry as she is talkative, so fares pretty well in this world. Lila is quite a frequent visitor at the Canton, we hear. What can you say for yourself, Lila? An opportunity — 1920 is leap year. ALBERT GEORGE " Life is real, life is earnest.” Captain Basket Piall Team. Albert is one of our star basket-ball players, and also received his letter in football. But he is tal- ented in another way, too, for he made quite a hit with his saxophone. He adds much to the orchestra when he plays. He is an old friend of .A.. E. D.’s hut doesn ' t lit in Civics. He gels in his time with the hunch most all day and every Thursday night. Noted for his artistic display of green ink. 1()LA MAE GIBBS ‘‘In every gesture, dignity.” W ' e never hear a word from ' iola. Her chief occupation is study and we heliexe she comes to school for nothing else. She can explain (to her- self) how she gets those " .V.s " perhaps, hut some of us would like to know, too. Noted for her ability to sing. T0I ' 0 ANDREW HANNL ' LA ‘‘.Vttention makes the genius.” Hannula seems to follow out the tihove (|uot:i- tion, as he generally has enough knowledge of his lessons to recite well. He sure did good work on the H. S. football team, helping us to win in many cases. Noted for his Civics ability. MARGARET IRENE HASSETT “Your servant I will be.” She is another worthy member employed in the art of " soda-slinging. " Irene tells us she is good at it, so we will try our best to believe her. She comes from Tar Hill, hut .still she doesn ' t show it. Noted for that original walk, and happy smile. MARY GROUT “Thy modesty is as a candle to thy merit.” Mary used to live in Shirley, hut after she had been with us for two years she came to I ' itchburg. She is stri ing admirably to be able to speak Siianish lluently so that she may be able to converse with the Major and hold her own in a Spanish argument. -And oh, her eyes ! d ' hey dance with merriment at times, hut they also are capable of sending forth glances of another nature. She is always there for tun and — well, just an innocent prank now and then. CLARICE ELIZABETH GWYNNE ‘‘Favors to none, to all her smile extends.” Clarice does not over-e.xert herself with talking, unless she recites, and her marks are sky high. The male sex holds no charms now for Clarice, although Eddie once was in good with her. Can " Mutt’’ get her goat? Well, just look out when you see them together, for a storm usually follows. Noted for that perpetual smile. ETOLA h ' R.ANCES GLYNN ■ ' Woman is at best a contradiction still.” Etola comes to school chiefly because there is no other place to go. It is rumored she likes her job, and can take dictation well. Our local boys have no interest for Etola; small town guys seem more interesting. Noted for her above-mentioned friends and color schemes. W ' lLMER HARRY GOFE ••’Tis love that makes the-arm-go-’round.” Billy lo es to tease the ladies — a favorite habit of nis. e learn, howei’er, and with some mortification ihat it is a fre.shman ( ?) he is rather thick with. He can dance too and last -ear easily won his letter in football. If Dartmouth is your goal, Billy, you had better hurry more than you are accustomed to. MIRIAM HAAPANIEMI " I love to please myself.” It is true that she does not try to please the rest of the world, not even Miss Ordung. Well, she can enjoy a good time and according to reports (and pictures) she did last summer. Chief occupation — traveling with the “girl in the office. " kiincn Aiiiii? A. llarkoiicn . (lia llel)(.rl loliii F. Heik ' kila Alfred F’. llohl Aaro Kaakincn Ivutli lolinston .Mildred M. Johnson m " J i 11 1 ' i 1920 CLASS BOOK 23 AUNE AILI HAKKUNEN “Oh Alii, Alii, IVe been thinking, dear, of you, If you love me as I love you, no knife can cut our love in two.” Aune is Alli’s sister and is always seen with a smile. She is very clever in Latin — clever in making W . J. L. think that she knows her lesson. She is exceedingly popular on account of her ahundant humor and contagious good nature — we s:iy con- tagious because " Phil " has caught it. Rut don’t bother her with studying, it’s no use. Noted for her " pep.” ALLIE AINO IIARKONEN “Leave me not, () gentle sister. Stay thou by my side, I ' orcver and a day.” Allie is one of the senior girl athletes, and helps to maintain the class honor in that line — hut she is skilful in other things too. Have you ever heard her talk? Well, she can say more in a minute than many say in an htnir. If you want to become ol)li - ious to your burdens and cares, go to Allie. .She is welcome everywhere. Noted for her wit. HELEN LYDIA HEBERT ” ot Stepping over the bounds of modesty.” Helen is one of our inrlustrious part-time com- mercial students, who help to run Simonds the right way. She’s got an awful giggle which is often heard when Lila is around. Incidentally she is another one who carries windshields on her nose. Noted for that giggle and her companionship with Lila. JOHN FRED HEIKKILA “A lion among the ladies is a dangerous thing.” " Johnnie” sure does like the ladies, also the little ones. He acts as escort for a hunch of them uj) Ashijurnham street somewhere and says he has a good time. Being also under Mr. Hunter’s wing he should get along. Noted for " working” for the Waymoth Lathe Co. MARY HICKS “Few words suffice.” Mary has come to school for four years and yet we hardly know her. She is one of the few business- like students that we have. W e do know that when she and Leonie are together they are sure to forget school. She is going to have a bright and happy future. AARO KAAKINEN Aaro is one of the small members of this faction who says little hut does much. One thing most of us can’t understand is his great friendshi]) with Annie Dunn. Maybe this accounts for those " . ’s”. He has been acting cpieer of late. W ho is the young lady, might we ask? JOHN McNAIR HOLLOWS “.Actions speak louder than words.” John is a firm believer in the .above (pjotation. Early in ihe year he refused a job at the State House. We shmdd not he surprised to see him holding a good position in W ' ashington, some lime within the next fifty years. He is ejuite an athlete, having won his letter in football and basketball. W hen he is not entertaining in 2M, he is at Parks-Cramer running the draughting room. Chief occupation — tickling the ivories at the “Y.” JOHN WILLI AM HOOPER “My hair is white, though not with age.” Billy is only with us every other week and when he is here he doesn’t seem to let much worry him, except perhaps Luella. Member of Lynch’s Jazz Band. Noted for his constancy to the above-mentioned blonde. MILDRED MARY JOHNSON “Bashfulness is an ornament to youth.” Mildred is so modest that we hear hardly any- thing of her either in school or outside. W e are sure that she is good-natured because of her pleasing smile. She ai)pears to lie diligent in her studies. She must helie e in that saying; " Little folks should be seen, not heard.” Noted for her lack of noise. t RUTH JOHNSTON Ruth is one of the lively members of our class. She served on both the Red and Gray board and the Class Book committee. In that way she has made herself useful, hut otherwise she manages to bother us all — even Mr. Dooling. We have known her to look at the other se.x, but we won’t say more. When Ruth begins her profession we greatly fear what the results will he. Noted for being a " darling little ( ?) girl.” ALFRED PIERCE HOBBS “Men of few words are the best.” Alfred is the lucky dog who lives across the street from school and who lets the hell serve as his alarm clock.

He is plannin.g on going to W orcester Tech, next year, hut really he should go to .Vmherst. Noted for his “athletic ability” and his pull with Annie Dunn. MADELINE HELEN KERSHAW savage gale hlew up.” Madeline is one of our little rebels. W’e believe that she .gets into hot water with some of her teach- ers, hut we hojic, Madeline, that all will he well soon. She worked at W’halom last summer and met sev- eral school teachers (?). She is the sort of person that can have a good time anywhere and any place. HELEN TRUE KLEIN ■‘Better be small and shine than to be great and throw a shadow.” For four years we have enjoyed Helen ' s good disposition. We rejoice to say that she has always seemed to disturb Miss Haskins, for someone ought to. Helen is studious and we venture to say that she rarely gets stuck in anything. We are certain that she will prove her worth at Simmons as well as she has here. Noted for her htthhy of writing notes. EDWARD KINLOCH ‘■I am not up to small deceit or any sinful games.” " Eddy” is one of our workers. He is winning great fame as a " Roy Scout” also, especially up West.

ALFRED DOMINIC LAP.ARGE ‘Good stuff comes in small packages.” “Cy " sure did good work on our lionoral)le l)askct ' hall team, even though he is rather short. Cy is also a part-time student, so we don’t see him as much as we should like to. A ' oted for abov e said basketball aliility, and size. WILFRED CRAIG LANE “Silence is golden.” Wilfred lives in a se(|uestered sphere of his own. He doesn ' t even speak to his friends evn the street. 1 le is sure to make good on the cinder track in the future, as he is ever present at Crocker h ' ield. We hear that he is well aceptainted with " hugs.” Oh, why so l)ashful, Wilfred? Noted for that " line” of his. PAULINE LARSON “The light that lies, in woman’s eyes.” " Paul” is a veritable speed king. She is one of our ener.getic young ladies and is quite an athlete. The 11. S. hoys hold no interest for her, as most of us know. We wonder why? If things don ' t come as they should for Pauline someone is liable to gel hurl, for she must have her own way. Noted for her love of hoys and her constancy to ■Ree.” ALRERT SUMNER LAWRENCE “My quest is knowledge.” President of the Classical Club. When it comes to studying and knowing some- thing, Sumner is right there. He is always prepared in class. 1 le has won several prizes, and we be- lieve there are more coming his way. Sumner be- lieves in play as well as work, and is always present at our dances. We wonder how he is coming out with in the Class Play? Noted for his A’s and those becoming windshields. PRISCILLA LAWRENCE “I have no men to govern in this school. That is my only woe.” Priscilia is J’s constant companion and they are well mated. If you have once heard them laugh you ' ll never forget them. You will often see Priscilla at Shea’s theater, always near the piano. She’s fond of the music (?) or jverhaps she wants to see the jiicture better. , ' s an artist she can’t he beaten. We wonder somewhat about those dancing parties she ( ' riginales. Noted for her aloofness, and consideration of Juniors. RICHARD H. RRIS LAWRENCE “Slow but sure, and very cheerful.” Dick is so quiet that we hear little aliout him. We are sure that he is doing nothing worse than tending to his own affairs. But Dick believes in having a good time when possible. Noted as Miss Dunn’s favorite pupil (?) and those automobile trips. f 27 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK MARY MAY LeBLANC “Marie” is a quiet sort of girl hut always ready to see the fuii go on. She happened to he a great booster for Michon when her pictures came out. But, why not? We wonder if it was real French she i)u!led off in the I ' rench play trying to ex|)lain things to Sumner? We will give her credit if she can explain anything to him. We ctin ' t. Noted for her " Ever-ready " smile and “petite dehonier.” ALFRED LINDBERG “.Socrates had nothing on me.” “Lin” is in our Industrial Class hut we helieve he shouldn ' t he there. We e.xpect some day to see a new dictionary hut as yet nothing has been done. Piston rings also fit well with Lindherg. " Opie” Hunter should take advantage of this. Noted for his howling ability (?). MARY THERESA LOMBARD “Ambition was her middle name.” Mary is rather quiet around here, as she is with us only every other week. We don’t know much about you, Mary. Why not introduce yourself. She wears goggles anyway and is noted for aforesaid " ambition.” LEO ANTHONY LOCNEY Leo fell into a good job when the hank started this year at school. We wonder if he will try to run J. D. R. out of business some day? We have hopes l)Ut even if he doesn’t we feel sure he will get some- where. MELVIN ANDREW LYNCH “I’ll improve with age.” Lynch never seems to he in any great hurry, ex- cept, of course, when a lady is the subject in mind. Lynch happens to he director of a promising jazz hand {?). Studies don’t bother him ery often any- way. Noted for his jazz hand. LENA IRMA MARSHALL “Give and you will receive.” Secretary of the Dramatic Club. Lena rides to school every morning in her car. She runs a candy booth down at the lunch counter with Bessie as her assistant. She has been known to give six cents’ worth of candy for a nickel ! .Kny- hody want a page? Well, call on Lena, as she had experience at Cumings Theater the night the Dra- matic Club convened. Noted for her generosity ( ?) and her ability at Iver’s. FRANCES ELEANOR MATTHEWS “Her greatest pleasure is in her work.” As a member of our class Frances has proved indispensable. .-Mthough we see her only every other week, she is always the same and her cheerfulness prevails over us all. She is helping run the Safety Fund, and we are sure that they never had a more faithful assistant. She can most always he found with Mildred. HELM I JOHANNA M.ATTSON “When you do dance, I wish you were a wave of the sea That you might never do nothing but that for me.” Flelmi is another member of the midgets, hut still the old saying holds true about good things coming in small packages, llelmi is perhaps one of Miss Ordung’s favorites the week she is in school, and perhaps not. .She is seen with a certain i)er.son a numlier of times, hut he must dance or he is not good. Ambition — lo he taller than her sister. F ' avorite expression : " Sure, you can have this dance.” WILLIAM HENRY MrAULIFF “In strange tongues I speak with ease.” Bill is the only one here who can lalk with him- self so that no one knows what he is saying, not even himself. He took Greek from Mr. Doolkig so that accounts for it. He is never seen out late at night — and girls! My gracious, no I He did fine work in the h ' rench ])lays, which goes to show he knows something. Noted for his large amount of “hot air.” MARY ALICE McCORMACK “Breezy and jolly she always is.” “Mac” is an ambitious girl; she wauls to lie an actress. So is starting at the bottom, she ushers at the Lyric. Some members of the school, however, make her much " flustrated” so that several mis- deals occur. . t school she is found in Gert’s com- ])any most of the time. F’avorite expression: “Seen Gert ?” SIGRID ELVIRA MEYER “The light that shone in her heavenly eyes, Bespoke a divinely good nature.” Sigrid is a most demure little miss, hut then ap- pearances are often deceiving — for ask Henry and then ‘A ' ou’d he .Surprised.” She is one of Jackson’s prize winners in the beauty contest, hut then she is not to blame for that. Noted for her innocence and charming features. Rliea E. !Minnich Arvo Alikkanen Ruby E. Murch Mae li. Murphy John E. Murphy Elizahetli 1,. Xichol: Yvonne M. Xourie Elsa j.

He takes great pleasure in ' ' iraveling” and we know he has been cpiite a distance. He gets the marks though, which is enough for any man. Noted for his punctuality. RHEA ELEANOR MINNICH “Let the world slide — what care I?” Rhea sure does live up to the above motto. She is here, there, and everywhere without a thought of worrying. Rhea was counted as among the missing a few weeks during the last year. We wonder why? Noted for her lengthy (?) skirts and dimples. EMELINE ELIZABETH MORI ARTY “I have been five minutes late all my life.” " Mo” arrives just about live minutes or more late every morning. During the last few months she has worn a path from 24 to Mr. Woodbury ' s office. She lives in that part of the city which is noted for its good sliding in the winter. She spends most of her time studying — Clif. Noted for her dimples. RUBY ELLEN MLRCH “.And she will talk, how she will talk!” Ruby is another of our lunch counter robbers, hut we hear S. L. gets quite a feed for a nickel. She ought to sign a contract with Keith’s Circuit to put that comedy with Sumner into the vaudeville world. We hear that unless things brighten up she will get left somewhere. Never mind, Ruby, it is leap year. Noted for those " A’s” from M. C. S., her dancing, and her " gift of gab.” WILLIAM JAMES NUTILE William is rather quiet around school. We hear that he is not in favor of the " tomatoes” the girls wear over their ears. But otherwise we do not know much about him. His favorite i)astime is " kidding the girls.” Latest reports say he is going to Normal school. Oh, my ! HUGO EINO NELSON Hugo has always been here hut no one else know ' s it. He is one of " Billy” Hunter’s proteges, so really ought to amount to something. He is known to be working for the Industrial XIachine ’orks. Does an 3 ' one know where it is? JOHN FRANCIS MURPin ' “I should worry.” " Jakey” is one of the best known members of our happy famil)-. He is famous for his hapi)y disposition, his good natured wit, and according to the Math. Class Spasm is one of the most talented gentlemen in capli ity. His time in school is spent mostly in grabbing the goal of a well known in- structor of history. Noted for those big shoes, white woolen socks, and those " A’s” in chemistry. MAE ELLEN MURPHY Merry as the day is long. Mae is a jolly, good-natured girl, and we have found her a great help in more ways than one. She has been a member of the orchestra until this year. We imagine she is as busily occuitied outside of school as she is in. Her glasses give her (juite a studious look, hut don’t be deceived. She is with us every other week. Noted for her musical ability. ELIZABETH LOUISE NICHOLS “A maiden fair with debonair.” " Bess” is a great sport and most anyone will tell you so, hut if you are still in doulrt ask, well. Mutt, f’rinstance. She made a wonderful old woman in the class play Init she really isn’t. It is whispered that she has been seen on Main street after 10 o’clock with a short, stout guy. Who is he, Bess? Noted for her Spanish lingo. Favorite expression ; " No kidding, now !” ELSA JOHANNA NIEMI “Ever loyal and true to the task she has to do.” Elsa has been with us for four years, and has proved her value many times. During her entire course she has jtlayed in the orchestra, thereby im- proving our music. She has a (|uiet but pleasing manner and is always readj’ to hefi) ( ut. We are sure she will have success later on. Noted for her peliteness. YVONNE MARGARET NOURIE Yvonne takes to dramatics like a duck takes to water. In the I ' rench play she managed to give us all something to think about with that French " line.” She left us late in the year to take up " duties” else- where. We wish you luck, Yvonne.

We think it must be second child- hood. He causes our dear " liill " } reat anxiety. He has charge of the refreshments during the lifth hour. We feel it our duty to inform . mherst t)f the truth. Noted as editor of the " Jazz-Jazza " and for " Brother " Sjirague. HAZEL ERANCES O’BRIEN Hazel seems to he one of the gay members of the class. Lately, however, she h;is itul in a good lot of hard work with her lessons, which makes things diBicult for us. She can usually he found in the office trying to fix things right with the office as- sistant. HAROLD ARTHUR PAGE ‘‘Bi-hold the pest.” Yes, it is the truth, hut we must give " Pagey " some credit, for he is helping us out on the Class Book. He has been seen with a youtig lady, hut " we ' ll never tell. " " Ptigey” is not over studious, hut manages to get by. Chief occupation — bothering. RUTH MARJORIE PEABODY ‘“Tis better late than never.” Rulh does not really belong? with us. In fact we don’t know where she does Itelong. She and Mr. Woodbury seem to he two mainstays here hut now we are quite sure Ruth leaves him behind. She may have something to say once in a while hut we never hear it. WILLIAM PRO ENZANI ‘“Let the world slide, say I.” " Bill” causes us all much trouble. He claims to he working at Simonds hut we know he has got an eye on Wall street, as he is quite an agitator in Room 7 every morning with his latest reports. He is quite a boxer, having met several " white hopes” whom he has easily toppled. Noted for his pool, and his ties. ELLEN ELIZABETH PHELAN “Always cheerful.” W ' e have found Ellen to he a true friend. She is very modest and doesn’t make as much noise as the rest of us. Ellen is conscientious in everything and we hope that she will meet with success. Noted for being good-natured. ALICE LOUISE PHELPS " She hugged the offender .■ nd forgave the offense.” ■■Mice is one of our most popuhir girlies, and all blues vanish when she appears. She tries to make us believe than she is really of a serious nalure, hut somehow we luive our doubts. smile that is all its own wins its way everywhere, even into the heart of a hetiriless ( ? ? ? ) Latin teacher. But there is more to it than lh;il, the reason why her cheeks tire so rosy now is due to the fresh, wholesome air of Westminster, and to the dear people who live in that town. If (pieslioned tis to plans for the future, .Mice considers silence as golden — hut we all feel sure that hells will announce it all soon. TOIVO JOHN POTTALA “As silent as a painted ship upon a [tainted ' ocean.” " Toy” is one of our baseball men who also might he considered some jumper. We hear, too, that he likes to get other people’s goat besides " Provo’s.” He :md Bill are a great pair when they get together. Noted for his grouch and hitting .3C0. ESTHER MARIE PEPIN “She that was ever fair and ever [troiid, Had tongue at will, and yet was never loud.” Esther has tilways Iteen in the " limelight " since we came here and her friends have increased each year. She is interested in everything lively that hap- Itens at school, especially the basketball games. But then there is a remarkable player on the team — so there’s a reason. But it isn’t a case of one and one only — oh, no ! There are plenty of others, too. She and Dot R are a source of encouragement to Mr. Miles every hour of music. Noted for her popularity. ISR. EL ARCHIE PUDVAH “.Measure not men hy Sundays without regarding what they do the rest of the week.” " Jake” never gets as low as an " E” in his studies and we know he got an " F” in haskethall. He lets everyone know who runs " Put’s” machine shop, too ! Need atiy help? Noted for those “lips” at the Y. M. and his order- ly behavior. ELIZABETH MARGARET QUINN “ ot much talk, a great sweet silence.” Elizabeth does not make much noise, as a rule, around here, hut we see her quite often holding up the statue by Rortm 26 talking with " him.” She has done good work on the Class Book and seems to hold down her job as a student. Noted for her friendly smile. ;mie Madeline Pi. Rilev s Theodore , Ra jala Rditii I,. Rowell Carnicn l odri(iiienz Leon M. Rome Dorothy M. Ro; ers Bruno I. Salin Emma P.. Schoerner Marv A. Scanlon 33 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK r TIfEODORE WILLIAM RAJALA “The pen doth fashion what the eye perceives.” Teddy is one of the little wonders with a pen. He is very callable in Put ' s draughting room as well as with Mr. Hunter, lie als o toots a cornet in ihe school " band,” at which he is again beyond reproach. JAMES PARKER RICE “Thou wert lonji and lean and lank.” Cicero happens to he a spry niemher of our honor- able basketball team and football. Can you imagine that? We ' ll say he did pretty good work; hut, of course, there has to he a girl in the case to make things interesting. W’e need not mention anj’ name in particular. Noted for being all of six feet, and his ability in managing class parties. MADELINE BEATRICE RILEV “Silence is a virtue not to be acquired by all of us.” Madeline is quite quiet in school hut is the " big noise” at Anastos Bros. She can juggle ice cream with any of them and always gives her patrons satisfaction. She probably can explain (to herself) her good marks and her close relation with her teachers. h ' avorite expression: " Your order taken?” CARMEN RODRIQCENZ “Carmen” is another of " Opie ' s” prize winners. He is running the Bath Grinder this year so in the future we will expect much from him. The only fault he has (that we can tliscover) is that he likes to talk politics. Noted for his " Labor Conferences. " BRCNf) JOHN SALIN “Deeds, not words, makes the man.” Salin fully believes in the aho e. He has always been with us but you have to look hard to lind him. He is thinking seriously of Bentley ' s, next year, so some day we may hear what he has to say. MARY SEGAL “Her face is bright with gladness.” Mary is another modest young lady, and has never forced herself into iew. She and Rieka are the best of friends and are always together. It looks as if Mary would be a real business woman some day. Noted for her sun ny disposition. LEON MARK ROME “Shall I go on, or have I said enough?” You ' ve said your say, " Le,” so sit down. ()ur friend Mr. Rome is (tne of those fellows who jtre- pares half his lessons at home and the other half in class. Oh! he ' s clever and we wish we could do it, too. He firmly believes that all the money in the world should he divided etpially (between Caphm atid himself). l ' a orite expression, “Well, 1 think ” EDITH LOUISE ROWELL “Blue were her eyes as the fairy fla. . Her cheeks like the dawn of day.” Eilith is the girl with the lovely pitik cheeks, and they ' re real, too. She is often seen holding long discussions with Miss Corliss — they must have a com- mon interest!?). I’ut we won ' t tell any secrets. But you cannot find a more jolly girl anywhere than Edi h. Her popularity is also extended in many di- rections outside of school. No ' ed for her sunny disposition and for being a favorite of a teacher. DOROTHY MAY ROGERS “In every gesture, dignity.” ■•Mthough Dorothy has only been wi ' h us for one year, we have greatly enjoyed her friendship. We are sure that she will do hei best to make the Class Play a success. Her singing surely added to the e.xcellence of the French and Dramatic Club enter- tainmetil. Noted for her pleasing manner. MARY ALICE SCANLON “Sweet and silent is her virtue.” May, as she is more often called, is one of the quiet members of our class, and ne er makes any (listurbance. But we do see her rustling around with Gertrude sometimes. We wonder if she likes " bacon ?” Noted for her retiring manner and her tallness. EMMA BERTHA SCHOERNER “Light-hearted and content she wanders through the world.” Emma has found a place in our class and now we could not dispense with her. She comes in each morning with a smile and something cheerful to say. She is very studious and hopes to enter Brown next year. We hear that she is not in the telegraph busi- ness. Noted for quiet wtiys. 1920 CLASS BOOK 35 HERMINE EMILY SEUSS “I chatter, chatter as I go.” Hermine comes from Leominster now and we wonder why she doesn’t go to school there. She is one of oiir headliners in the dramatic world, coming into prominence some time ago and working up to the Class Play. W hy not try acting for a profession, Hermine? She sure does like to talk and we pity her because no one is her equal in it. Noted for her spirit ami supply of vocal energy. THOMAS PATRICK SHEA “My cheeks are bonnie, bonnie.” W ' e can hardly tell whether Tom is hlushing or if it is natural coloring. W e’ll give him the benefit of the doubt anyway. Tom doesn’t say much, hut fits in pretty well with some certain lady friends up here. Now, Tommy! Noted for above said artistic coloring of the cheeks. GEORGE LLEWELLYN SHEPARD “One vast, substantial smile.” Business manager Red and Gray, president of the Dramatic Club, editor-in-chief of Class Book, mem- ber of School Council. George is a very busy fellow, and is never in one spot two minutes. But we admit that he has his hands full in more than one way. That ‘‘spon- taneous” smile of his attracts all the girls, hut we know of only one in particular. W ' e surely could not dispense with George as he is the only original. Noted for his pretty hair and Lord Chesterfield posture. GEORGE EDWARD SPRAGUE “Behold a child by nature’s kindly law, Pleased with a rattle and tickled with a straw.” Pardon us for repeating the above quotation, but it does apply so directly to our little George. He is the other “cherub” of our class. George and “Evelyn” always have their heads together contriv- ing some new way to get our goat, but they haven’t got it yet. But you know children must have play- things. George, like most students, has his favorite teacher. Noted for his fine Latin translations. OBELINE ST. PIERRE “Thus let me live, unknown.” Obeline is a member of the Commercial depart- ment, and that is all we know about her. She is al- ways busily engaged in her studies in school, and never speaks unless spoken to. Noted for her quietness. MARY INEZ SUNBURY “Slow but also sure.” Mary came to this school from Ashby, only this year. W ' e can’t blame her for coming. In our minds she is rather unassuming but we learn of late that she knows more than we give her credit for. PHILIP ROY SULLIVAN “Yea, I’hil, Yea, Sullivan, Yea, Yea, Phil Sullivan.” Neho made some relay captain our Junior year and started us off on the run. He is seen {juite frecpiently holding down the steps of the Y. M., hut that’s nothing against his cheerful personality. Noted for his running ability. GERTRUDE MAE STROUT “Men are deceivers ever, To one girl constant never.” Gertrude is one of the Scanlon-Strout twins ; and whenever you see her, you also see Mae. W’e could tell a great deal about Gertrude — hut guess we better not. But this we will say — she keeps them all guess- ing both in school and especially outside. Rumor has mentioned such names as Billie, Bobbie, Eddie, and others, but we won’t tell which is the one. ’ariety is the spice of life! Noted for her coiffure and attractiveness. ELNA DOROTHY SWL NSON “.■ ge cannot wither, nor time stale her infinite variety.” Elna is that dear blonde in 24. She went on the W ashington trip and seemed “divinely happy’’ ever since. Each year she lends her pony cart for class day, which is certain proof of her generous and kindly spirit. Many think her as innocent as a flower — but appearances cannot be relied upon in all cases, for reports of that W ' ashington trip have reached our ears, as well as a few other remarks about a certain — well, guess who. Noted for her blonde hair. PHILIP JAMES T. RPEY “I’m a har-r-d stuy!” Phil is a close rival to Pat Moran in baseball and some day we expect to see him manager of a national league team. He believes in supporting the alumnae (in more ways than one), at least he does his share for one alumnus. His brilliancy in the Math, class is always encouraging to Mr. How ' e, and his eternally blessed smile has won for him the favor of every- one. Pie is a staunch and reliable (?) patron of Kennedy’s. The butter store, do you ask? W’ell — hardly that ! ! ! But we issue a warning against blondes. IMPI RAUHA THLIKAINEN Impi spends most of her time tooting around the building with epistles from office. W ' e wonder she isn’t worn to a shadow, but she seems to be bearing up. She used to work a week and then go to school a week, hut now she’s in t he office all the time. It’s whispered that she has designs on C. T. The little rascal ! Gcori e H. Trottier lames K.

Everyone knows this and his home work is tattered and torn after the rest of the class have finished with it. He also might be called a musician as he carries a cornet under his arm. Chief occupation, reading musical literature. GEORGE HENRY TROTTIER George is positively quiet of late. He used to do a lot of rushing around. He is on his way to Tufts Medical, so that is most probably the reason. His one strong point is the great amount of outside read- ing that he does, especially on labels at Riker’s. “Close the door, Trottier.” Sound familiar? JAMES KING TUCKER, JR. “Pep, dash, speed, and enthusiasm, .‘Ml are yours without dispute. But enthusiasm creates the spasm.’’ An all-around good fellow is Sam. As our ])resi- dent of the Athletic Association he is une.xcelled and the class would be quite lifeless without his cheering presence. Yet despite all, he has one weakness, like all great people, namely ; Female sub-graduate with auburn hair — but Cupid’s arrow is to blame for that. His theory is that life is too short to waste in books, while a real show, dances — and girls — are in ex- istence. Noted for his jazz ties and stated weakness — a combination always found together. TOIVO JOHN VIRTA Virta is usually seen and not heard. He spends his life mostly in “killing time” by dropping in at the alleys or the movies. He tells us he likes to figure the H. P. of steam engines. We don’t doubt it. Noted for that brown suit that refuses to wear out. ROGER WALTER WENZELL “A man every inch, and six feet tall.” Roger happens to be another long member of this famous class; but he seems to know quite a little regarding studies, so we’ll allow him the honor of graduating as a member. He helps to keep one of our city hall offices going, and when not doing that, entertaining Fannie from up West. Our music master looks straight at Roger and speaks about the man on the fish wagon. Noted for his brilliancy. TEODOR ARMAS WIKSTEDT “Too much rest is rust.” “Teddy” holds the above words to be true. He is never quiet, even in Civics. He can always be found where there is jazz and we learn that he is a past master in that art. We also know that he can pull an “A” in Physics, which is much to his credit. Favorite expression; “G. A. R. tonight?” DORIS KATHERINE UPTON “To lofty heights her thoughts do soar.’’ ’ice-President of Dramatic Clul). Chairman Literary Dept. Red and (fray. Doris is certainly a fine addition to any class and as a student she can’t be beaten. She has worked hard to make the Literary department of the Red and Gray ;i success. Her chief interest seems to lie in an oiieratic career. We wonder why. She man- ages to have fun with the rest of tis the fifth hour, but of course Mr. Dooling doesn’t know it. She re- ceived third prize for her Thrift Essay and also her Music Essay. Noted as the other " Heavenly Twin” and an all- around sport. RICHARD EDWIN WESTON “God made him — therefore, let him pass for a man.” Everyone know ' s Dick, the fellow with the curly light hair and the professor’s goggles. His smile is permanent, and his soul is constantly athirst for mischief. When all else fails there is one reliable ictiin in 24. She threatens, sends forth angry glares, etc., but all in vain. Ifick’s ambitions are two-fold; he will either seek to promote his thea- trical ability or will enter the ministry. He has al- ready acquired fame in his role of butler in the class play, which he played with remarkable natural- ness. He almost deserted us for a darling Junior, but surrendered his claim to Duguid. Noted for his spectacles and charming (?) laugh. MADELINE DORIS WHITNEY contented spirit is the sweetness of existence.” President of Spanish Club. Madeline is so quiet that we have scarcely had the chance to become acquainted. W’e are sure that she is never idle, for in school she is always study- ing, ami outside she is drawing trade for Brooks’. Besides Madeline is quite a Spanish shark and one of Major Lowe’s strong supporters. Noted for her height (?). MILDRED EVELYN WHCKHAM “Always light-hearted and content.” “Wickie” has proved herself a true friend to us all. She is with us only part time this year, and Simonds is having the pleasure. Mildred is a loyal Girls’ h ' riendly meml)er and also a steady follower of Frances. Noted for her few words. KAARIN HELENA WIKSTEDT Kaarin surely “has seen her duty and done it noble” up in typewriting. It’s a safe bet that Kaarin has broken in more rookies on tJie multigraph than anyone we know. Kaarin is one of the loyal sup- porters of Shea’s and now and then she dances a little. Noted for her faithfulness to Miss Miner and her pleasant personality. Rieka R.

He is going to Worcester Tech, ne.xt year, so started bright and early to study. He used to juggle the glasses at Earls’ hut found out it interfered with his lessons. They say other things interest him besides school, such as wireless and, and well — ask him. Noted for that " crop of wool.” RIEK.V REBECC. WINTHROP tiny .sprite, yet a merry one.” Rieka is quiet and we don ' t see much of her around school. She has a sunny disposition, and is usually with Mary. Noted for her fame as a debater and her lack of size. EDMUND JEROME WOODS ‘‘Children should be .seen and not heard.” " Ned” is not exactly a quiet lad in school nor outside, as far as we know. ' e imagine he is rather popular with the girls, at least it looks that way some- times. But “Ned” is influential by his environment up country so we will excuse him. He hopes to play for Pat Moran, although not much is said about it by him. Noted for his gentle manner in class. F. NNIE GERTRUDE WOOLLACOTT ‘‘Laugh and the world laughs with you.” " Fannie” is there when it comes to dancing, but that is what we all like about her. Every one wants 1‘annie to wait on them at the lunch counter; and why not, when a nickel goes so far? Roger buys a cent check and gets a feed big enough for Fatty Arbuckle. Noted for those " B’s” she gets from M. C. S. and her great ability in “Pa’s New Housekeeper.” MADELEINE AGNES HENNESSEY “Why worry.” Madeline sets things humming wherever she goes. She may run the Bijou Amusement Co., some day, which we must declare she is capable of. She may not be much of a student, but when it comes to seating crowds — well, she is right there. She was another of those few " select " ones who got Michon’s studio a lot of business. How about it, Madeline? Noted for that charming personality. JOHN JOSEPH HALLORAN “Music hath charms.” John, otherwise known as the “Whiskey Tenor,” has cut a wide swalh in musical circles during the past year, and with another successful season should be well up in Grand Opera. Another of his peculiar- ities is that he went to Washington with M. C. S. h ' avorite pastime, “peddling milk.” JAMES BRACK “Stand back, my name is Governor Brack.” Jimmie is Luke’s old standby. He doesn’t be- lieve in wasting much time in studies deep, but rather enjoys walking in the balmy night air provid- ing he is escorting Gertie. Now don’t get angry, Jim. TOIVO HENRY KARVONEN . n inspirer of noise. Karvonen sure never lets his study interfere with his idleness. Some day he may wake up btu we doubt it. His one strong point is causing trouble especially around Room 24. Noted for his “idleness” and leisurely manner. MAY EILEEN FLYNN May is one of those girls who had to leave us during her last year. May is a quiet body, but al- ways ready for a good time. She was a grind while in school, but of late she doesn’t care. We can’t find anything very bad about her, so she must stay by herself a lot. Noted for her red coat. WAINO HENRY LAHTI “A man’s a man for a’ that.” Waino left us once to act as Governor (or some- thing) at the State House. He is considered one of our l)est for marks. With such a. start he ought to turn out something fine. Noted for those “A’s” and his “pull” with the teachers. ISMAY ANNA McGlTRK “Who to herself is law, no law doth need.” Ismay is one of the merry members of our il- lustrious class. But she is also one who believes in attending to her own affairs. We do not hear much of her outside, but we know that in school she is very attentive to her studies. She is generally seen with Madeline. Noted for her smile. ilho Xikandcr Mphonsc Welch f Gladvs Wheeler Melena V. O’Connor Leo 1 .. ilson 1920 CLASS BOOK 41 HELENA URSULA O ' CONNOR “Gayety is the soul’s health.” Although Lena lives in Room 26, she has made it her plan to skip into the office each morning to see if all is well. We have noticed that the Lyric is generally crowded. We surely appreciate her cheer- ful smile and wish success in its use. Noted for those " specs” and that complexion. LEO EARL WILSON “A sailor’s life for me.” Leo tried to desert us once by going to Annapolis, hut he is back again. He has brought several new ideas along with him about running the school, hut they don’t work. Uo they, Leo? We also learn that he corresponds with someone way off in Texas. Noted for being an all-around good fellow. ALPHONSE JOSEPH WELCH “Few words suffice.” “Al” doesn’t say much except to Elizabeth at recess, and as long as we cannot go in on the secret that’s all we have to say about it. When not study- ing “Al” is seen riding around in that machine of his enjoying life at leisure. WILHO NIKANDER “Hear ye not the hum of mighty workings of a mighty brain?” " Nick” is one of the very few who belong to the Industrial Division that keep silence in W. P. IP’s jreriods. Re not confused by the name “Nick,” be- cause his name has little to do with his actions. When we do not have his welcome comi)any he is playing with electricity. His favorite pastime is seeing the country in his flivver. GLADYS APPLETON WHEELER “Were eyes not made to flirt with?” Our commendable cornet player is Gladys, and without her the orchestra would lie inaudible at times (but no danger of this when she’s there). She can make that instrument almost talk — but as sbe is an expert in that line herself it is hardly to lie wondered at. Our sympathy goes out to a certain Junior who goes into 26 every recess with hope, but always exits wilb a downcast expression. Noted for her lung-power.

Barttlett Moore Meyerbeer Sousa SYNOPSIS “Milestones” is the work of two of the famous men of letters of today, Arnold Bennett, novelist and essayist, and Edward Knoblauch, author of " The Faun, " " Kismet,” and other plays. The story depicts the lives of two families through three generations — every act showing the members of these families in a different period, acting out their destinies in the very same room, which, like its occupants, changes in appearance with the passing years. The three acts represent the periods of 1860, 1885, and 1912. W’e see the young folks of the first act develop into maturity and old age, yet the spirit of youth is never lost, for each act brings its generation of young people with their ambitions, their disappointments, their romances. The story hinges upon the construction of ships, and the fact that one generation is loath to acknowl- edge the progress of the next. In 1860 John Rhead, a Thames-side iron founder, realizes that the day of wooden ships is gone, and that the iron ship is the thing of the future. His determination to move with the times breaks partner- ship and friendship. In 1885 Rhead is prosperous and fifty. Iron ships have made his fortune, and he has married his partner’s sister, in spite of opposition. Gertrude, Rhead ' s sister, who has been engaged to Sam Sibley, has remained a spinster because Sam is too old- fashioned to appreciate her brother. The Rheads’ daughter, Emily, marries Lord Monkhurst against her w’ish, for she is in love with Arthur Preece, a young inventor, who advocates steel for ships. This is frowned upon by John Rhead. In 1912 is the golden wedding of Rose and John. Emily’s daughter Muriel is in love with an engineer, and will marry him no matter what the opposition. Rose for the first time in fifty years opposes her husband. Emily, now a wddow, marries her old sweetheart, and Rose, John, and Gertrude, left alone at the end, are convinced that the younger genera- tion is not so hard as it seems. “W ' e live and learn.” CLASS HISTORY As the distinguished and revered class of 1920 now passes forever from the dear old Fitch- burg High School, it is with awe and over- whelming satisfaction that one may well wonder at the remarkable record of the class. From the first, we have shown ourselves to be the foremost of those who have passed through the stately portals of this school. The reason for this is in the attitude taken by each individual member, in doing everything as well as possible. With this in mind, we chose for our class motto “Ad Summum.” Its spirit we have carried with us through our ever upward progress toward suc- cess. With it we have risen from the freshman class. ' Yet this rise was not unattended by difficulties. Freshman as we were, it was not unnatural that we should at first lack confidence. To us it seemed that the road was long and weary. At length, however, we discovered that success was not some- thing for which there was any magical formula. Wffirk and persistent effort were found to be the onh ' things that counted then and now. We saw this the more plainly as we entered on our second year. By that time we were free of the humiliating rank of freshman. The fact that we were one step higher not only gave us satisfaction but urged us on to more efforts. It was this year that the class took its first step toward self-government by the purchase of two fifty dollar Liberty bonds. . t last we were beginning to be known. Our Junior year found us well along on our journey. From then on it was only one triumph after another. In athletics the class was most important to the school. . s seniors our class furnished the backbone of the high school teams. Those enter- ing such teams have shown such interest and zeal as would bring pride to many older and more e.xperienced players than they. Moreover, they have beaten so many teams nearby, that now they are well on their way toward becoming cham- pions of athletic sports. Certainly they have brought honor upon the school and especially upon us, the members of this class. Here, in fact, it may be said that whatever the class of 1920 has undertaken has been almost invariably a success. It was so with our class party in our Junior year and again in our Senior year. Our class officers have shown themselves to be able and efficient. All that we would wish for, we have. Why then should we not be happy? Who would not be if he were a member of this class? We will say no one with the possible ex- ception of a member of 1921. Such a member might feel uncomfortable in such a high position. To them, however, we give the following advice: Let them strive to imitate the record of this class, to go forward and progress on the road to knowl- edge, that in so doing they may become worthy successors of 1920, the class most honored, most admired, most respected — the leader of all. Jju L r CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS This year has seen the organization of several clubs pertaining to school life and school activities. As secret societies ha e been abandoned, it was felt necessary that soniethnig he put in their place. Hence, the establish- ment of these societies. DRAMATIC CLUB The Dramatic Club was first started in January by IMiss Stratton for the purpose of bringing the drama into closer contact with the pupils of the High School. Membership was limited to those having C or above in English. The officers elected were George Shepard, president; Doris Upton, vice-president; Theron Fish, treasurer; and Lena Marshall, secretary. The activities of the club have included many dramatic entertainments. On Senior Xight the club presented in the Assembly Hall a short play entitled “N’everthelesfs.” Such was its success that later the club repeated it in the Cumings theater, this time with other pieces and in con- junction with wo rk of the French club. ORCHESTRA The Orchestra has been doing fine work all the year. M ' ithout doubt it is due to the effort of Miss Alice Pepin. Rehearsals are held on Thurs- day, during the 6th hour. The members are: Lina Enholm, pianist; John Frandila, Sumner Lawrence, Soderberg, Theodore Lindstrom, Gladys Wheeler, Mildred Xelson, Elsa Xiemi, Robert Hird, Mary Perkins, IMaakanen, Lester Brown and Paul Chenery. CLASSICAL CLUB The Classical Club came into being at the time of the others. IMr. Dooling was chosen as Faculty .Advisor. The purposes outlined for the club were the enlargement and insight into subjects relating to classical Greece or Rome. Pupils were chosen as officers. President: Sumner Lawrence; vice- president, Rudolph Haapaniemi; treasurer, Mary Bacon; secretary, X’ormand Henderson. Alembers were limited to Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores, who are studying classical subjects. ' I ' he activities have been talks and exchange of opinions on Roman and Greek life. FREXCH CLUB The French society was organized by Aliss Fuller at nearly the same time as the Dramatic Club. The officers were elected as follows: Presi- dent, Cecile Beaudreault; treasurer, John Mc- Alanus, and the secretary to l)e appointed at every meeting. French was the language of the club. The object was to make the study of French more interesting and acquaint the scholar with French customs and French thought. •Among the various means of entertainment was the presentation of two plays in French, Les Six Bourgeois de Calais and La Surprise d’Isadorc. I ' hese were given as part of the program of the French Club and Dramatic Club. THE SPAXTSH CLUB The Spanish Club organized under the leader- ship of Air. Lowe. The officers elected were: President, Aladeline Whitney; vice-president, Albert George; secretary, Bessie X ' ichols; treas- urer, Cecile Beaudreault. All meetings are held in Spanish, and several interesting talks have been given by Air. Lowe. GLEE CLUBS The Glee clubs under Air. Allies’ direction have been doing splendid work. Air. Allies has used a great deal of time and effort and it is evident that the students have responded excellently. Both clubs prepared faithfully for the concert held June 4, which was a great success.

Many pretty and interest- ing costumes were worn. Every Sophomore had a very enjoyable evening, and other classmen wished they had too. On November 10, immediately after the basket- ball game finished. The Dansant was held from 4 to 6, in the Assembly Hall. There was a large attendance from every class, and all had a good time dancing. On December 12, the second The Dansant took place. The attendance proved very large. Every- one seemed to take advantage of the low admis- sion fee. Dancing was enjoyed from 4 to 6. The first French Club The Dansant was held January 30, in the Assembly Hall. The music was furnished by Leo Hannon’s orchestra. The Dramatic Club, and the French Club, presented their plays in Cumings theater, Feb- ruary 13. A play was given in French by mem- bers of the French club. The Dramatic Club presented their play “Every Student,” given by members of the Freshmen class. They also gave selections from Shakespeare and Macbeth. Miss Dorothy Rogers sang a solo in French. Red and Gray night was held April 9, in the Assembly Hall. iMlle. Marguerite Clement gave a very interesting lecture on the differences be- tween French and American customs. Her picture contrasts were both naive and interesting. On the evening of April 16, Commercial and Industrial Night was held in the Assembly Hall. A large majority of the Commercial and Industrial students were present. The reader was Miss Lucia Hutchins, who delighted everyone by her interpretation of the play. Daddy Long Legs. P ' rom 9.15 to 11 dancing was enjoyed. The second PTench Club The Dansant was held Tuesday, May 4, from 4 to 6 p. m. Lynch’s orchestra furnished the music. The Senior Class held their Class Party in the High School Assembly Hall, Thanksgiving eve- ning, November 2 7th. Coleman’s orchestra fur- nished music for dancing. The attendance was exceptionally large, and it is certain that all had an enjoyable time. The Junior Class Party was held in the High School Assembly Hall on the 23d of .-Xpril. A large crowd was in attendance in spite of the bad weather. Hannon’s orchestra furnished music for dancing. Credit is due to the Junior Class for the unique decorations. A concert by the Music department of the Fitchburg High School was given in the Assembly Hall, Friday evening. Boys’ and Girls’ Glee clubs sang several selections. There were solos by Miss Rogers and Miss Hukari, a violin solo by Mr. Lindstrom. The orchestra rendered sev- eral selections under the leadership of Miss Pepin. Mr. Miles also favored with a solo. The at- tendance was about three hundred. CHRONOLOGY CHRONOLOGY SEPTEMBER. 2. At last we’re all here ! ’Tis the moment we have looked forward to since last June (?). 3. Actions speak louder than words. " Ain ' t it a grand and glorious feelin’ to be a Sophomore?” No books given out yet — what’s the matter? 4. We observe discouraged expressions on faces of M. C. S.’s class victims already. Cheer up, dears, the worst is yet to come. 5. Seniors are now showing signs of dignity, and even condescend to smile at the Juniors. 6. Saturday — thou blessed day of every week. 8. The whole family gathers in Assembly Hall for the first time — scarcity of seats in center section. Miss Pepin does the honors at the piano and C. T. starts off the year with a good prayer. 9. W. J. D. boasts of his bright Virgil Latin class (you never hear thp class boast), and Sumner L. and Stella C. shed forth their intelligent rays. Glad news — dancing will take place in A. H. until 9.CX) p. m. 10. Rally to the call, mates ! Miss Pepin appeals for talented (?) musicians. 11. News! News !! All about the election.

Go to it, boys, we’re with you. 16. Some wise person has said : " Time wasted is existence: used, is life.” If this applies to school life, we’d rather exist than live, n’est-ce pas? 17. Wonder when C. T. will begin his annual course of necessary lectures? We’re patiently wait- ing. 18. Alberta is having a hard time picking out those who shall be the objects of her occasional out- bursts of temper and also those as objects of her affections. If it’s all the same, we’d just as soon belong to the last class. 19. Friday can’t come too often to suit us. You will never wear your welcome out, thou peaceful day. 22. If activity is the only road to knowledge, many of us will never reach the first milestone, judging from Monday morning. 23. We feel more at ease now, for C. T. gave his first lecture on the usual topics — duty, loyalty, etc., this morning. Squad is out for first scrimmage. 24. We forgot to speak of Junior election. — “Shea” it is. W ' e wish you success, ’21, but you can’t beat 1920. 25. Everyone fears to enter Room 26 for study hour. ' Surely something dreadful will happen, for our friend hasn’t passed out a P. M. yet. 27. Our first game. Score, in favor of Wor- cester, 7 to 0. This proves our generosity in giving away the first game. Tucker is president of A. OCTOBER. 2. Our first vocal meeting with our new di- rector, Mr. Miles. Best goods come in small pack- ages all right. Everyone’s jawbone aches after trying to make some noise. Much din and little done. 3. ' isitor (entering 26) : " Do you study here?” Bright Junior: " Yes, when Miss Haskins is looking.” 4. Fitchburg vs. Malden; defeated 7 — 0. I say there, football team, you are too generous. 6.

Guess Mr. Howarth must be getting a corner on every key; so if you want to have peace — buy now. 8. Save your quarters, and your dimes, your nickels, and your pennies, all for W. S. S. Mr. Nichols spoke on Thrift Stamps. “Thrift is our middle name.” 9. Blue and Gold ! Blue and Gold ! Forever shall you these colors behold. Senior color day. 10. " Pep.” See it! We have it with us! Just watch Tucker. Congratulations, Sam — you have the idea — but we were glad the roof was secure this morning. 11. Well, here we are! F. H. S. defeats Wor- cester Commercial, 1 — 0. 12. How kind of Columbus to have discovered America on this date. We appreciate it sincerely. 13. Fitchburg trims Gardner, 28 — 0. 14. For those who have already become en- tangled in the meshes of a language, we would say : " Leave all foreign tongues alone, till you can spell and read your own.” 15. When you are in doubt, refer to our motto for 1920: " Ad Summnni” — to the highest. In other words " the sky is the limit.” 16. Behold ! Miss Pepin exhibits her new prize orchestra, which is composed of many who advocate arm movement and wind exhaustion. 17. " Do we believe that” obedience to law is liberty? We believe that it is easier said than done. 18. F. H. S. vs. Haverhill. Beaten again, 20 — 0. 20. Put on your armor and prepare for self- defence, for examinations are beginning to appear. Now is a good time to take a tonic. 1920 CLASS BOOK 21. We took a trip to the British museums with Prof. Barnes this morning. It’s wonderful how imagination can work until fatally interrupted by that old bell. 22. Caldwell knew his English lesson today. Better begin late than never. 23. If our liberties leave off where the rights of others begin, we don ' t stand much show at examina- tion time. O, thou blessed teachers ! 24. Shocking ! Someone found two long golden hairs on Sumner’s shoulder. We wonder whose? But truly such conduct cannot be tolerated, Sumner. 25. F. H. S. whitewashed Lowell, 20 — 0. 27. The fatal day for many has come — report cards given out at recess. I f ever I need thee. Lucky Star, ’tis now. 28. Recovering slowly from the after-effects. “All having A in four major subjects, please stand!’’ The stars are few and far between. 29. Self-control is the corner-stone of demo- cracy. Take notice. Miss Ordung I Have a heart, Dick. 30. She smiles upon one only. Billy is recipient of all her favor in 24. How do you do it, Gibbs? 31.

Melodious (?) sounds arise from A. H., the first hour. New singing conductor makes a hit. 7. This is “good-speech” week. Think twice and speak once. But today is Teachers’ Convention day — Worcester. Discussions of further progress for “Scholar Slavery.” Anyway today is free. 10. Hardly worth our while coming back, is it? There were some “hops” in our The Dansant this afternoon. 11. Armistice Day I Look! Look!! What pret- tier Red Cross workers are to be seen than those of F. H. S. girls in parade? Boys showed their en- thusiasm, too, this afternoon. Ball game.

Mr. Jatho as German prisoner. 55 13. Have you seen Bernier’s smile? We guess that " Brock” must have been in town; that right, Arthur ? 14. Red Cross Day! Make it 100 per cent strong, boys. They even take up collections in A. H. now. Don’t be a tight-wad. 17. Mr. Westgate, former graduate, favors with a solo this morning. We understand that he started cultivating his voice in high school by never keeping quiet. At that rate b ' . H. S. has rich prospects (jf skilful singers. 18. Genius burns, but only so long as power is turned on. (3ur power plant has shut down for the day. 19. Welcome, Carpinella ! Mike is still popular with football team. Some of the fellows looked “enviously” at his abundance of fair admirers. 20. Mr. Miles dramatizes song — “Believe me, if all those endearing young charms.” Have patience, boys, it comes by experience. 21. Junior Class Color Day. Green and gold — perfectly horrible, so say we. 22. Saturday — E. H. S. vs. Greenfield. Score, 17 — 0. Watch that team ! 24. Only three days of school this week. Sum- ner lost his balance in physical culture and fell to floor with a crash. Are you training for acrobatic career, Sumner? 25. W. J.

Senior Class Party was certain success. Were you there? If not, why not? M. C. S.’s Civics students are losing flesh every day. 2. S. Lawrence entered girls’ physical training class. One look was sufficient. How could you, Sumner ? 3. Say, have you observed the number of Sophomore beauties that “Sam” entertains every recess? Especially the one with auburn hair. You will hear more later. 4. Our teacher in Room 24 can’t complain about service, for every day some faithful (?) person is seen with Welsh rarebit, cocoa, etc. Cheer up, little one, it won’t always last — so be not weary or cast down. 5. Another week has passed and we are still here. 56 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK 8. Just a couple of weeks until marks again! Hope someone remembers that " first aid” lecture we had recently. It will come in handy. 9. Sprague asks W’. J. D. for a description of the " Inferior Regions. " Sort of preparatory, is it, George? Rain again. Say, Mr. William; isn’t it nice to have friends generous enough to share a taxi in the rain? 10. Who says our A. H. isn’t practical? Chapel, gymnasium, dance hall, basketball field, and club room, all in one. 11. Debate in 22. Filansky exhibits an orator’s ability which would make Cicero turn in his grave. You make a lot of noise for a little fellow. 12. Another Sunlight Hop this afternoon. Glad these come on Friday so that we don’t mistake the pursuit of pleasure as pursuit of happiness which never could be if we had to study tonight. 15. Of all magnets the bed is the most powerful on Monday morning, don’t you agree? 16. Room 37 — Fifth hour. All heads are bowed for one minute of silent blessing for the departed brother Roux, who, rumof has it, was married Satur- day. 17. The chronologist refuses to agree with him who says that nothing becomes tedious if done willingly. Wonderful example of inexhaustible lung power is given in Freshman Latin class. Room 7. W. J. D. says he is growing thin over his exertion. 18. Reward offered to him who can arouse Prof. Howe to an outburst of temper. 19. Hurrah ! another week’s vacation with all kinds of expectations — a visit from Santa Claus, turkey dinner, alumni dance, skating, etc. Only one dark spot on the horizon — a vision of F. H. S. again — December 29th. 29. Christmas is over and once more we meet. Another holiday, Thursday. Why not have one every week ! Behold ! Roux is back — he thought it over twice when he saw the price of furniture. 30. Another dark, dreary, dreaded, dazing, dim, dizzy, deceiving, and horrifying hour is at hand — report cards at recess. 31. Alarm clocks may ring in vain tomorrow, for we are going to escort 1919 to its end and make the acquaintance of 1920 promptly. JANUARY. 1. " Happy New Year to you all, ’Tis Knowledge that doth loudly call : May the Sun of Learning light your way To our memorable Graduation Day. With joys and pleasures all a-plenty. All thru the year of 1920!” 2. W’e are in doubt about the absolute mental perfection of our School Board when it makes us come back for the last day of the week. Perhaps they just wanted to be certain that we still exist. 5. There was an earthquake expected in Room 22, this morning, when it was discovered that Miss Stella Cushing was wearing French heels. This is just the beginning — we shall watch closely for a new " vamp " in the senior class. 6. Some sage has said, " Men, like tools, are not good when they lose their temper. " We would change the word men to teachers, for we know that he had them in mind. 7. W. J. D. announced to a Latin class that “a woman swoons beautifully. " One student under- stood him to sa} ' sfoons. Either will do ; so say we. 8. If, when about to begin to study, your con- science says, " No,” do not argue with it. 9. In a fifth hour class today one irresponsible pupil asked this question during a discussion on spiritualism; " Are the iron chairs which are often seen on graves placed there for the walking spirits ?” Senior Night — Play and dance ! ! 12. Raids are in vogue now ; why not raid our bunch of Traitors to Senior Girls. The following list is both enlightening and suggestive. Names on the right-hand side are the causes as known : Goff H. P. ’23 Tucker M. R. ’22 Shepard C. B. ’21 Weston and Duguid M. S. ’21 13. If ) ' ou want to practise for a race, follow Miss Gifford, but just for the sake of " safety first " we would advise you to keep at least arm’s distance, for you never can tell about the actions of some people. 14. We see that H. Klein has her hair up for the first time and we only hope that she is beginning to grow up. It takes a long time, but patience is virtue. 15. Guess some folks in the Commercial Course wish that Miss Miner didn’t wear glasses, for judging from the wondrous keenness of her eye- sight with them, they feel confident she would have enough left without them. 16. Sixteen below zero — zowie ! The school looked inviting to us as it came into view this morn- ing, all right. This is the kind of weather that makes some of us wish we had a little more padding. How about it? 19. Phil Tarpey gallantly offers his “strong arm” heater to Miss Harkonen, when she complains of being cold today. We don’t know why, but the latter politely refused. 20. While undertone conversation was at its height in 43 today. Prof. H. mildly announced “that he would wait until the conversation was ended, as it would be most discourteous of him to talk while others were doing so.” Wonder who looked for a crack in the floor? 1920 CLASS BOOK 57 21. An elevated railroad was established in 37 today and was giving good service when suddenly W. J. D. seized the monopoly of it. Previous owners, N. S., surrender the invention without murmur. 22. W ' e suggest that a committee be appointed to test the strength of Jackson’s camera, as class pictures are to be taken next week. Now don’t get peeved — we don’t mean you in particular. 23. The editorial “we” is still in use in Room 32 and " while you may read your book, you don’t know it.” Sounds familiar and soothing (?) doesn’t it? 26. Wasn’t Mrs. Woodbury interesting this morning? No, she isn’t related to our own C. T. at all, but her husband was principal of a school ! C. T. remarked that it was proof of her good judgment when she married a Woodbury. Queer world, n’est-ce pas ? 27. Some kind people are now showering us with prizes for examples of our extraordinary literary ability. Prize Essay on Thrift, Music, Advantages of Recruiting in U. S. Army, etc. Showers of bless- ing, some say, but we don’t appreciate it somehow ! 28. The first thing we know we shall all be theatrical stars. Commercial Department is going to have a play. Dramatic and French clubs are going to stage several. French club will give theirs in native tongue — so you don’t have to go to Paris to see everything. 29. Oh, say ! what do you suppose we heard to- day? Listen carefully — Mr. Woodbury sleeps in a nice woolly sleeping-bag which is so satisfactory that he recommended it to a friend over the phone today. Directions ; Get a piece of outing-flannel, sew up the sides, leave an opening at the top for your head. Well, ask Mrs. Woodbury; she makes them and they’re great ! 30. Do you believe that bashfulness may be overcome? We do and we have proof of it. All you have to do is to look at E. Phelan and PI. Page in 22 some first hour and you will be most easily per- suaded that such is the case there. Never mind, Ellen, it’s Leap Year and we don’t blame you in the least. Good luck ! FEBRUARY. 2. Well, proofs of class pictures are already afloat. It’s amusing to hear the comments some people pass when they see their physiognomies in picture form. Were you disappointed or happily surprised when you looked at yours? Just remember that the good- looking people take the worst pictures. Don’t be peeved, because really we don’t mean to be personal. 3. Someone said, “A woman’s idea of refinement is to be tall and thin.” F. H. S. is blessed with one refined teacher anyway. Can you guess who? Let’s be thankful for small mercies (?) 4. This is our opinion relative to marks and report cards: " What’s the use of hoping for the best and preparing for the worst when you have to take what comes?” We should worry! 5. We thought the no-school bell had been abolished, but its merry sound rang out these two consecutive days. Perhaps it is making up for lost time. 9. We aren’t all here this morning. Some of our number are entertaining a most disagreealtle and undesirable guest, Mr. Flu. Some things come with- out bidding all right, in these days. 10. In a second hour math, class today some members had their pictures taken. Do you suppose the teacher might appreciate assistance in keeping closer watch over his pupils? The only connection we can see between mathematics and photography is that both must be developed to be made clear — Stop smiling! 11. It ' s rather slippery out today and you must watch your step — or else (?) You see Miss Ham was so eager to get home to dinner this noon that she could not wait to descend our granite, ice covered steps as a teacher should, but attempted to slide down all of them at one time. She was going down anyway, but desired speed. 12. The wonderful performances of D. F. clubs took place tonight at a real theater, which proves that the performers are real actors and many miracles were caused. Our renowned friend S. L. changed from a majestic king to the head doctor in an insane asylum. All parts in the entire performances were played with splendid exhibition of skill and naturalness ! 13. Mr. Chalmers informs Tucker and Scott that they remind him of a monkey and an organ grinder; they’re still wondering which is the monkey ! 16. A. Dunn showed a remarkable degree of maternal spirit by giving the boys of her first hour class some good advice, that " boys of your age should not have dates.” Wonder how she suspected? Oh, she was young once. 17. . nother well-known saying recently re- peated : " History is based on facts, as we who have studied under Professor Hart have come to know.” How can one say such things? 18. A new Theda Bara! Room 24, third seat, first row. She has the eyes, and the curl (like this), which is sufficient— and have you seen her pictures? Oh, Baby! 19. W. J. D. looked at Miss Upton and she recited today — a fact which was followed by the re- mark that “if you recite every time that I look at you, you will recite all the time !” Quite a com- pliment, Doris. 20. No school for a week. Well, the teachers need the rest. So do we, rest for what? That in- 58 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK crease in salary. In Room 25 first hour. Caldwell coming in late. Much laughter. Miss Dunn: “I wish you wouldn ' t laugh at every silly little thing.” MARCH. 8. This morning in English Miss Phelan turned to H. Page and modestly inquired, " Does my hair look all right in the back, Harold?” Reply was a gruff " Yes.” We didn ' t know that you were such an authority on female coiffures. Page. Perhaps you are going to specialize in that line ? 9. It was declared in math, today that " Sam” has a sneaking fondness for Aune H. Why sneak- ing? Are you still in fear of that irregular disposi- tioned sophomore, Sam? Poor policy to show timidity of that kind before necessary, we believe. 10. C. T. went away, bag and baggage, this morning, for 24 whole hours — O, period of sweet sensation and relief — we would that thou wouldst come more often. Rice returned to school today after quite an illness — heart trouble? Well, guess we’ll have to warn A. A. 11. Did you ever notice the smiling expression on E. Clarke ' s face every Monday morning? Wonder why. Possibly it’s because she gets so used to gazing upward toward the perpetual Greene on the day be- fore that it is natural — and green (e) is so soothing to the eyes. But it’s hard practice for stiff necks. 12. Miss S ’s heart (Hart) is still in the right place. 15. Mr. . miott gave a private lecture in the Assembly Hall of the F. H. S. this morning. The audience was most inclusive — I mean seclusive — in- asmuch as only male characters were permitted to listen. The subject in hand pertained to the harms and ills of cigarette smoking — all of which was dulj ' appreciated (?) But we forgave him, for we knew that he realized where he was and spoke accordingly. 16. The thriving bass and tenor chorus of Room 24 was in active service at the end of recess today. Their work and tone was commendable and ap- preciated by everyone but the honored lady. Miss Ordung, for whose benefit it performed so well. 17. Lynch failed to appear today and later tried to say it was on account of the abundance of rain — but Hermine says he was out late last night. A woman can ' t keep a secret, Melvin. 18. The usual clamor was heard in A. H. today for this is music day. The boys’ glee club made the most noise and rendered the most audible sounds — that was because Beauregard and S. Lawrence were the soloists. In the case of the latter we will say for any who are envious that " genius is born, not made.” 19. We cannot discover why A. Dunn despises Charlie Chaplin so. To be sure he is perfectly harm- less and he only acts a little more sensible than many of the persons who surround her each day. Really, Miss . nnie, we think him more to be pitied than scorned. 22. Our friend of Room 37 was sighted in the corridor today, trying to hold hands with Miss Quinn. Horribile dictu ! And we thought him so ad ' erse to the weaker sex. 23. Well, at last S. Lawrence has passed in his music essay — that means fifty or seventy-five dollars for certain. As he did so his expression spoke for itself, saying: " 1 envy no man that knows more than 1 but pity them that know less.” 24. Harry, the honored president, came to school in pink socks today. Take ’em ott, boy. Do 3 ' ou want us to go blind? Besides they don’t match your nice tie. If you want excitement, visit 24 at the end of recess. Echoes of advice to children. Never rains but it pours. 25. Read as e.xample of an advertisement in an English class: " In case of death, call us on the phone, wherever you may be, and our representative will be with you without the least possible delay. Palmer’s Undertaking Parlors.” This is indeed an age of miracles. 26. Miss Stratton : “What relation to Mirth were Joy, Quips, Cranks, Wanton Wiles, etc., in this poem L’Allegro?” Miss Bolles : " They w ere cousins.” 29. Scholar: " It is queer why stout people are always good-natured. I wonder what the reason is?” distant voice around No. 32 : " We have to be. ’ou see we can’t either fight or run.” 30. An exercise in English seen on the board in 22 (for Sophomore class) : " She acknowledged that she had no doubt of their mutual affection and she was astonished to hear of their correspondence.” " In this state of affairs Francis vacillated between the two parties.” They are beginning to teach them 3 ’oung, eh ? 31. Mr. Howe: “W ' hat are the properties of heat and cold?” “The property of heat is to expand, and cold to contract.” Mr. Howe : " Now give me an example.” " In summer when it is hot, the days are long; in wdnter when it is cold, the days are short.” Very clever child, so say we ! ! APRIL 1. Well, everything is still going on the same as usual, onlj ' Miss Gifford was having one of her classes name some animals of a certain species. She said : “There is one animal which none of you have mentioned. It does not stand on its legs all the time. It does not walk like other animals, but takes funny little skips. What is it?” 59 1 9 2 0 CL A S S BOOK And the class j ' elled with one voice, “Charlie Chaplin. " 2. They say that conscience is not repentance ; it is dread of discover} ' . (Iness that is why we jire- fer to don an e.xceptionally brave smile, approach the desk, and make our excuse, rather than try to bluff it. It sometimes works if the smile is brave enough. 5. A remarkably true discovery was made in Miss Fuller’s French class today. The question was asked: " What is the gender of the word pcrsonnc? " Correct ‘iiiszeer: " Pcrsoiiiie is feminine gender when it means ‘persons,’ hut it is masculine when it means nobody. " Three cheers for the French theory ! ! 6. Do you think you arc educated? Here is the definition of an educated man : One with a uni- versal sympathy for everything, and a certain knowledge about ev erything that is known, and who still is, on the line of evolution, learning to the end. 7. In studying naturalization for civics we found this anecdote: A Russian Jew wanted to become an American citizen and filled out three questions on the blank : Name: Joseph Levinski. Born: Yes. Business : Rotten. 8. It i)ays sometimes to look kindly. Although you feel worried and blue ; If you smile at the teacher and are cheerful. The teacher will smile back at you. The second stanza will be continued in tomor- row’s issue. 9. So try to brace up and look pleasant No matter how low you are down. Good humor is always contagious. But you banish your A ' s when you frown. 12. W onder what makes W ilcox so weary and fatigued when he reaches Miss Dunn’s class? He was requested to bring a bed to class today so that he might recline more comfortably. Some teachers are real considerate. 13. Miss Gifford and M. C. S. lireak off friendly relationship today in the corridor on the third floor. The contest isn’t fair — one side overbalances the other. Ambassadors meet in 34 for Peace Confer- ence. 14. Everyone is talking about economy and we wish it might reach the ears of someone in 24. Miss Ordung has worn out six perfectly good pencils already in writing out afternoon session slips. There should be a war tax attached, because it should in- clude everything which is unnecessarj-. 15. Sumner says that he learns something new in the class play rehearsal every day. Yesterday he learned that marrying a beautiful yoitng stenographer was not as hard or as impossible as he had sup- posed. So now, girls, beware ! 16. Today a stranger passed the . ssembly Hall door when the Boys’ Glee Club was in ttme, and c. ' isttttlly remarked to the priticii)al, " . re you ha ing :i demonstratiem of some of the mentally unbalanced ictims from neighboring districts? " Real com])li- mentary, n ' cst-ce pasF 19. Joy to the World — a Holiday is here. No school. 20. Lectures for students who are going to " Higher Institutions " are now in vogue. The fame of two former stitdents is sent broaflcast — one be- ing the brother of A. Phelps, and C. T. remarks as ’Won all know we still have a member of the Phelps family with us, who is worthily holding u() the fame of the name. " Queer how appearances are deceiving? 21. M. C. S. has already begun to announce her ardent desire to see the president on her Washing- ton trip. The eagerness and expectancy on her part increases each day. We wonder if it is mutual. Per- haps she is looking forward to suffrage, when the friendship might become useful. 22. Sing your loudest today. Remember that Miss Sheddon is disgusted with us — but never mind, it’s never too late to be sorry. Mr. Miles mounts C. T.’s “pulpit " in order to be seen. 23. Hurrah ! Another week’s vacation that we may enjoy. .So make hay while the sun shines. MAY 3. Once more we return to the scenes so dearly cherished, many of which have been so impressed as never to be forgotten. For instance those in 24 during afternoon session, in 32, 25, 34, and else- where. 4. M. C. was absent today. Also Y’ilfred Lane? -Mystery certainly holds sway these days. Girls ap- pear in furs and straw hats todaj ' . Consistency, thou art a jewel. 5. Mr. I ' ine’s military order of Ruck Privates enjoyed the fresh air today for the first time this year. . sad catastrophe marked the event, for Sergt. Dooling was court-martialed for flirting with dear little girls while on duty. Yield not to temp- tation, Bill. 6. Mr. Chalmers demonstrates the meaning of the word courtesy (?) in third-hour chemistry, while Miss L ' ])lon reaps the benefits. Was it amusing? . sk Doris. Mr. Shepard pulled out two gray hairs today — such is the strain of Class Rook responsi- bility, or perhaps it was an active little Jun well, never mind, it doesn’t matter anyway. 7. C. T. made a new record today. He gave out no afternoon sessions during a period of thirty- eight minutes. " The (ptality of mercy is not strained. It falleth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the slHde)its here beneath.” 60 1 9 2 0 CLASS BOOK 10. Messrs. W’enzell an d Murphy were seen in Barre Sunday night. Yes, they are back again today. e hear that a lovely five-pound box of sweets mysteriously disappeared up at Cushing Academy, and as a result a certain member of our class is minus some chocolates. Some people have not any heart at all, have they, Alice? 11. Miss Haskins advised a senior girl today never to take up teaching, although she said that it was very true indeed that she loved her work sin- cerely. W’e believe it all right, but we do feel sorry that so much affection is wasted without bringing home like results. 12. We wonder if Mr. Dooling has some definite aim in view when he persists in calling Miss Cush- ing " Miss Lawrence.” Poor Sumner looks so em- barrassed every time, too. W ' e rather doubt your ability as a match-maker, William. 13. Class book committee had their picture taken today. Everything went splendidly, until Mr. Michon asked the fellows to hold their hands gracefully. Then he tried to hide Duguid’s feet, but all in vain, and Weston’s cranium proved to be too heavy to hold up. So, you see, we did have our troubles after all. 14. Mr. Chalmers exposes his chemistry class to an unmerciful test. Rushing work for the Red Cross ambulances ! Even Miss Upton scarcely sur- vived. A tiny watch camera is working much mis- chief around here lately. The owner better secure a sturdy metal head and face protector before his dis- covery is made. So beware ! 17. Soft, creamy chocolates are most delicious to eat, we all agree, but as to whether they are pleasing to sit on, I doubt if we all know. But someone (?) in a fifth-hour Latin class found out today, and judging from his appearance we would say that the answer might be negative. It was a pretty light gray suit, too. However, once bit, twice shy. Have you guessed who it was? Initials S. L. 18. Miss Upton returns after having spent a week among the wiles of New York city, and we plainly see they have had their effects. While in Latin class she was discovered dreaming of the Hippodrome and of that Hungarian Goulash Knoodle, etc. Ask her, she ' ll explain. 19. An age of miracles!! Miss Bacon has suc- ceeded in vamping the class male genius ! Hitherto thought to be an impossibility, but patience and perseverance surmount all obstacles. 20. Mr. Chalmers insists that he has seen “fel- lows who could blow for half an hour?” We might add that we have seen teachers who could blow for- ever ! 21. W. J. D.’s Latin; “Is woods poetic?” (mean- ing the word). E. W ' oods : “No, I’m not.” 24. Miss Cushing describes the sensation of hunger, all from personal experience, and she had the whole English class in tears as an expression of sympathy. It must have been years and years ago, judging from present appearances, Stella. 26. Much excitement in Room 39 during the first hour. They tried to turn it into a zoo with an ex- hibition of live alligators. That was all right, but when an innocent mouse came to pay a visit too, the feminine members chose the tops of desks as safe refuge. 27. Mr. Miles added two inches to his height when he rose in wrath today and threatened to resign his position to give place to an ambitious person in the audience — but the latter declined. He certainly showed some fighting spirit. Never judge a book by its cover ! 28. Memorial Day exercises in Assembly Hall with three periods omitted. Paul Corcoran and Ralph Beauregard, rivals of Burke and Webster, gave famous spe eches, with remarkable oratorical ability. JUNE 1. Well, the last round has now begun, with tears (?), sighs, and a few giggles. Just think you are beholding the countenances of those who have been your friends and enemies for the past four years, for the last time. Does it give you a queer feeling? Of course you understand that “friends” refers to your class-mates — " enemies” to your teachers. All agree? 2. Sullivan is absent from 24 again this morn- ing, which means another trip to Boston ! The “big city” has altogether too many attractions for you, Sullivan. Murphy has discarded the woolen socks this morning. Dangerous thing to do at this season of the year when it is only 160 degrees in the shade. 3. Professor “Gwilym” sings Dardanella, after which there is much applause. Six commercial students are ejected. Some people are mean, we’ll say, and forget that they were ever young. 4. Just two more weeks to go! A. George breaks saxophone in rehearsal — too much wind. Oh that Glee Club ! 7. Members of new Jay Jay Ess create much excitement by sending an ultimatum to C. T. W. Why disturb the peace of the family at this late hour ? 8. Just a few of our number, the brightest stars, are already growing remarkably slender — worrying over those college entrance exams. But in one case at least the loss is duly appreciated, nicht wahr, Stella? 9. Mr. Fine’s loyal volunteers are given honor- able discharge and Sergeant W. F. Dooling is pre- sented with an Iron Cross in recognition of his worth ! 1920 CLASS BOOK 61 10. Senior Class Song is adopted — ‘‘Oli, What a Pal was Mary” (M. C. S.?). We believe in proper dedication all right. Enhohn and Hollows are out again. ' I ' hose Clinton girls? Yes, that’s the reason. 11. Annual hook procession starts toward library headed by Lynch’s Military Hand. Everyone in fine spirits ! 14. Sumner L. has discarded his student’s bag and seems to feel lost without it. It was your truest friend, wasn’t it, Sumner? 15. Miss Ordung has been wearing a permanent angelic smile for the last few days — except when she looks at Weston, and then — well, sudden changes are never for the best. 16. Have you seen those Juniors? ' I ' heir ftices vttry in length from one to two feet. 1 ' hinking of that race. Cheer uj), dears, the worst is yet to come. 17. Class Day Exercises. Hail, hail, the crowd’s all here! Were you on the honor roll? liS. Relay race. Rah! So well done! juniors had to be carried off field. 20. Baccalaureate : Don’t we hate to leave ! 23. Graduation. A wonderful crowd, eh ? 24. Senior promenade. FINIS Haec olim meminisse iuvabit. These things may he pleasant to recall. ATHLETICS i FOOTBALL The 1919-20 athletic season started off by welcoming home Mr. Amiott, who had seen a year of service in Flanders. We again mention the fact that we are greatly pleased in having him with us, as we are confident of his ability and of the results during the coming year. The football team men were called out shortly after the opening of the fall term and underwent a period of intensive training. The squad was in good condition when the schedule began. September 27. The first opponent was Wor- cester North High School. Worcester had a good team but our boys held them to one touchdown. Both teams played good clean football. Score — Worcester North High School 7, Fitch- burg 0. October 4. Fitchburg again faced defeat. Malden proved too strong for our boys; in spite of the fact our boys put up a good stiff battle. Later in the season Malden forfeited the game, as boys over twenty years old played on the team. Score — Malden High School 7, Fitchburg 0. October 11. Fitchburg made its first touch- down on Crocker Field in the game with Wor- cester Commerce High. Worcester’s coach called his boys off the field within three minutes of the end of the game because they were penalized fifteen yards. The referee gave the game to Fitch- burg by forfeit. Score — Worcester Commerce High 0, Fitch- burg 1. October 13. Gardner met defeat at the hands of our boys. The Gardner boys always put up a good battle. Our team was the heavier one and outclassed Gardner in all ways. Sawyer and Stebbins were the principal ground gainers. Score — Gardner 0, Fitchburg 28. October 18. Haverhill was met at Haverhill, and Fitchburg was outclassed. The students, going by truck, made a good showing at the game. Score — Haverhill 20, Fitchburg 7. October 25. Fitchburg introduced defeat to Lowell when they met on Crocker Field. The forward pass was used with success in the last part of the game. A string of substitutes played well and held Lowell down. Score — Lowell 0, Fitchburg 20. November 1. Peabody with a strong team trimmed Fitchburg. The Fitchburg boys lost all their valuable team work and played poorly. Joe Tarpey, Phil’s brother, made some good runs. Score — Peabody 21, Fitchburg 0. November 8. Manchester boys, champions of that state, trimmed Fitchburg. Our boys were outclassed, but put up a good battle. Score — Manchester 33, Fitchburg 0. November 1 1 . Armistice Day. Approximate- ly 5000 people witnessed this game. The field was exceedingly muddy, but our team defeated Clinton to the satisfaction of all. McNally acted as quarterback. Score — Clinton 0, Fitchburg 23. November 15. Chairtown high school boys were not as easily defeated on their home grounds. A large student body was in attendance. Score — Gardner 0, Fitchburg 7. November 22. Greenfield squad, the cham- pion of Western Massachusetts, was played. Gur boys expected a hard game, but Greenfield proved to have many “holes” in its line. Hopes of win- ning the Leominster game flagged as the “cracker- jack” left end, Nourie, sustained a broken collar- bone. Score — Greenfield 0, Fitchburg 46. November 27. Thanksgiving Day. Fitch- burg met its old rival. Leominster was pretty sure of winning and was willing to back it by money, but our boys gained a touchdown in the first five minutes. Leominster held our boys to two touchdowns during the game. Score — Leominster 0, Fitchburg 12. Worcester Commerce game was forfeited, as the coach called his boys from the field because they were penalized 15 yards. ' orcester North and Malden were forfeited, because boys of twenty years of age played in the games, which is against the rules. LETTER MEN AND TEAM. Buckley, ' 21, I. t. Cote, ’21, r. e.

The team met ] Ialden High on our own floor. Team work was splendid. Malden seemed to be rather slow, as we were able to plaj ' all around them. Rice got 7 field goals, whil e Enholm got 4. Our boys got a total of seven- teen field goals in all against Malden’s five. Score: Malden 10, F. H. S. 40. Jan. 23. Our boys tackled Leominster, the old rival, in the F. H. S. Assembly Hall.

Score: Leominster 14, F. H. S. 47. Jan. 28. Clinton was not such an easy op- ponent, although Fitchburg trimmed them by a large margin. Fnholm was the star, having nine field goals to his credit at the close of the game. The team upheld the fine standards by play that was clean and above reproach. Score: Clinton 10, F. H. S. 26. Our second string men played the Clinton State Guard team. They scored five field goals and our representatives four. Score: Clinton State Guard 10, F. H. S. second 8. Jan. 30.

H. S. 45. Jan. 31. Our first string men tackled Wor- cester Tech second and beat them, although it proved to be a stiff game. Fnholm starred with six field goals. Score: Worcester 9, P ' . H. S. 15.

Woonsocket at P ' itchburg. An extra stiff game was expected and we did not find it easy to defeat Woonsocket.

The Fitchburg High School was full to overflowing. It was estimated a thousand were present. Everyone was extremely anxious for the game to begin. Both teams were keyed up to a very high pitch. The game was very strenuous on both teams, and when the first half was over the teams were very tired and breathing hard. The second half they were freshened up somewhat. Everyone realized the P ' itchburg boys were up against a better team. 7 ' hey took de- feat as nothing to be ashamed of. Score: Glou- cester 32, F. H. S. 23. Our basketball team is justly to be praised. It is the second best in the New England High Schools, if not in the country. BASKET BALL TEAM .A. George (Captain), 1- g- A. Labacge, r. f. J. Hollows, r. g. Substitutes J. Rice, c. I. Pudvah, forward W. Enholm, 1. f. R. Cote, back BASEBALL The 1920 baselDall season started in full swing with the opening game at Crocker Field. Gardner High was the opposing aggregation. Fitchburg proved equal to the occasion by piling up seven runs. Score: Fitchburg 7, Gardner 1. April 17 saw Leominster at Fitchburg. The game was hardly interesting as we were able to turn in eleven runs to their five. Playing was ragged by both teams but was more noticeable on Leominster’s side. Score: Fitchburg 11, Leominster 5. On . pril 24 the school nine went to Clinton. Clinton loomed big as a rival for first place in the league, which made things more interesting. We were much in evidence, however, and came through with a victory. Score: Fitchburg 8, Clinton 6. P ' itchburg High went to Gardner on .April 29. We were well represented and had no trouble with the Chair Town crowd. Score: Fitchburg 10, Gardner 4. May 1 marked Fitchburg’s first defeat. Sev- eral substitutes had to be used and on the whole it was an off day for the school. Leominster played well, especially the battery. Score: P ' itch- burg 4, Leominster 5. On May 15 Fitchburg met its strong opponent, Clinton, at the home grounds. The game was quite exciting with Clinton ahead in the eighth. The umpire made a decision which was not satis- factory to Clinton and the game was over. Clinton forfeited. Score: P ' itchburg 9, Clinton 0. May 19. Our team went to Gardner. ' I ' he Gardner nine was in no condition. We had a walk-away. Score: Fitchburg 15, Gardner 1. Alay 26 we met our old rivals at their grounds. I ' he day was a banner one for us as our boys chalked up eleven runs to Leominster’s five. Score: P ' itchburg 11, Leominster 5. May 29 saw Waltham at P ' itchburg. We proved too strong for them as we were able to bring in thirteen runs. Score: P ' itchburg 13, Waltham 6. Alay 31. Fitchburg went to Clinton. Clinton was well represented and had a better team than the one we sent. Score: P ' itchburg 4, Clinton 5. June 10. Clinton returned our visit and also left a bad taste in the mouths of many. We were defeated and by such, our chances for capturing the Wachusett League departed. Score: Fitch- burg 4, Clinton 6. June 12. We again met defeat by the appear- ance of Lowell. It seems useless to call this a successful season, but we gave our boys and Cap- tain Tarpey good support. Score: P ' itchburg 1, Lowell 6. BASEBALL TEAM Tarpey (Captain), c.

Never chew gum in class unless you divide with the teacher. 2. If you smoke, smoke " Camels. " The Faculty like them. 3. If your room teacher tells you there is a note on the desk from the librarian, beware, it’s leap year. 4. Run all your " crap games” in 25, Annie just loves excitement. 5. Bring Martine a pound of Bailey’s and you can skip an hour. 6. Do all your talking on the second floor, C. T. likes it. 7. Do not fail to read M. C. S.’s famous book, " My Conversations with the Presidents.” 8. Take Annie Dunn to the show at least twice a week. jo ces JOKES WOULDN’T IT BE FUNNY IF: C. T. missed a culprit? Everybody paid their dues? Sumner Lawrence got behind a “IMecca?” Mr. Howe got caught playing poker? The orchestra all played in the same key? Churchill had any brains? The Juniors acted human? Sullivan paid his bills? Beauregard could dance? Stella Cushing flunked? Weston was bashful? Millie Coleman wore glasses? Lane got a hair cut? Dooling washed his fa;:e? Tucker shouldn’t say “enthuthiathm?” Tarpey had a nickel in his pocket? Ruby Murch didn’t smile at S. L.? The sandwiches were fresh at the lunch coun- ter? Jimmie Chalmers would admit he knew any- thing? Bertha Sherwin got married? W. J. weighed 86? Apie Hunter got drunk? (Can’t be done). Capt. Enholm’s football team could play checkers? Mgx Caplan spent a dime? IMartine Chase wasn’t so keen? IMiss Fairbanks got over blushing? Mr. Howarth was in jail for over-speeding? Lynch forgot to walk home with Hermine? IMiss Coleman: “How do you say ‘nuts’ in French?” Class giggles. Miss Coleman: “Oh, yes, I know some of you are conscious.” “Bedelia” Haskins: “Flave you seen Mr. Hub- bard?” C. T.: “Yes, he saw you looking for him and immediately signed a contract to go to Mars on a sky rocket! ” CAN YOU niAGINE Pottala without a grouch? Wilco.x with his hair cut? C. T. at a dance? Sumner Lawrence behind a Camel? Murphy with his hair parted in the middle? Jce Fine shooting craps? Miss Dunn reading Nick Carter? Jimmie IMac in a pool room? Churchill with glasses? Harry without his “bones?” Dooling without a smoke? Wilson as a sailor? Stella without W. J. D.? IMiss Ordung with a “gentleman friend?” Mary Cushing Smith as the President’s wife? IMiss A.: “You used to call me the light of your life.” Hooper: “Ah, but I didn’t know then how much it would cost to keep it burning.” Freshman: “Washington threw a dollar across the Potomac. I wonder if he could do it now?” Sophomore: “Of course not; a dollar went farther in those days.” Miss Stratton: “Have you read Scott’s novels?” IMiss Cushing ’20: “All but his ‘Emulsion.’ I have seen it advertised but I have been unable to get a copy.” Jimmy IMac, philosophically: “Isn’t it wonder- ful, when you think of it, how a mirror can re- flect one’s face?” Lane: “Yes, I sometimes wonder how it can stand the strain.” Conductor collecting fares: “Fare, sir!” IMax, looking out of window: “No, it’s rain- ing.” A. E. D.: “Class, let Caplan think.” (How can we help him?) 1920 CLASS ROOK 79 OUR ERSIOX OF THE SENIOR CLASS PARTY ' The Senior Class had one good time Thanks- giving night. The only thing to mar the bril- liancy of the party was the moonlight waltzes, but that did not mar the good time — Oh no, my friends, decidedly not. If you don’t believe it ask iMaric Champagne and Jakey Murphy who were dancing in the corner. At first we feared for the reputation of the class and also for the committee in charge. Our fears were allayed, how- ever, as the cop on duty happened to be good natured and obligingly looked the other way when the hall was the darkest. Speaking of Jakey Murphy we got a grudge against him as he failed to live up to his promise by putting a punch in the punch. One of the greatest features of the occasion was Father Howe. His Apollo- like form and Godly features were shown off to perfection in his well-fitting full-dress suit. An- other bright light was Laura Ferguson who radiated jewels from head to foot (Oh, by the way, Laura, what kind of perfume do you use?). Now last but not least we must mention the ex- cellent music furnished by Percy Coleman’s Jazz Band. iMiss Stratton; “The knights of the Round Table were called Roundheads. What were the Cavaliers called?” Bright Pupil (always asleep) ; “Square Heads.” .Anyone wishing to hear a lecture on any sub- ject, may call on Air. Frellick, Room 47. “Too bad Air. Frellick is getting bald,” said one of h’s pupils. “Well,” piped up A., “they say grass never grows on a busy street.” AT C. S.: “Where was Booker T. Washing- ton educated?” Alurphy: “Shirley Industrial.” Papa Howe: “Air. Shea, into what corner shall I draw this sphere?” Relu Shea (the pool shark waking from his daily nap) : “Side pocket.” CLASS ALPHABET Amiable — Alildred Coleman. Busiest — Alax Caplan.

Rice ought to make a good messenger-boy. !Miss Smith to 6th hour class: “Explain ‘Japanese Diet.’ ” Max Caplan, rising with much show: “What they eat mostly, I guess.” Rome’s only hope with A. E. D. sadly de- preciated when he said: “The language of love is universal.” Mlcox meant no harm while decorating the monument for bfovember 11. But oh! my!! such things he said. Ask Page, he was with him. IMiss ; “ ’hen a man scalds his hand, what three authors does he mention?” IMiss ; “Dickens, Howitt, Burns.” 1 1. C. S. states she possesses about twenty volumes from the greatest of historians — but it doesn’t mean anything. Teacher giving example: “If sugar were fifty cents a pound, what would five pounds come to?” Wise guy: “It wouldn’t come to my house.” Bill; “What makes your nose so red?” Sumner; “Glasses, my dear fellow.” Bill: “Glasses of what?” IM. C. S.: “Miss Ferguson, half your audience is on the other side of the room.” Laura: “I won’t look over there; for if I do, they make me laugh.” (It must be P. J., Laura, how about it?)

FITCHBURG HARDWARE COMPANY The Name Means an Aim 314-316 and 746 Main Street Fitchburg’s Big Market A concerted effort to obtain a big volume of business is responsible for much of our success. Large sales, quickly made for cash, and carried away, are the factors that enable us to make a tremendous turnover on an exceedingly small margin of profit. For instance, in one eight-day period a short time ago, we received one hundred carcasses of Beef, sixteen thousand pounds of fresh Pork, and two hundred and sixty carcasses of Lamb and Yearling. This enormous amount of fresh meat was taken care of and moved into consumption without delay or inconvenience. Such a large output is bound to give us many advantages in buying at low prices, all of which we pass on to the consumer. -A trip through our market and its twelve departments, each one a complete store in itself, is time well spent. Why not pay us a visit, see our display of pure foods, all under glass, and note the reasonable figures at which they are priced? Come in and look around.
