P THE THCDMASONIAN 1956 Published bythe SENIOR CLASS of THOMAS BUSINESS COLLEGE a Waterville, Maine FOREWORD The Thomasonian is a Recapitulation of the school year 1955-56 and is the result of an elected staff and the local merchants. We have attempted to summarize, in literary and pictorial form, the outstanding events of this past year, in a manner that may help the grad- uating class retain pleasant memories of their associations with Thomas Business College. L ,, gin C4HHenmrg Q9f B , x. ZANE D. CRAY The students of Thomas Business College wish to have this yearbook in the memory of Zane U. C ray. We were all very happy to have him be a part of last year's student body. Also we are very happy to have known him as a fellow student. CLASS ODE To the classrooms down at Thomas, To the place where friendships dwell, To the meetings with the friends we love so well, To the teachers and their clsses, And the lessons which they taught, And the magic of that name which cast a spell. Yes, the magic of old Thomas, And the charm which it possessed, All our teachers and our classes at their best. We will serenade four:Col1ege When friends and guests shall meet. And it long will be remembered as the best. CHORUS We'll go from our school Like the ships at sea Sailing far Our College will shine A dear memory Shining star. Fifty-six's class is off on its own, Dangers threaten wherever we roam, Thou, a beacon to guide us on, Light us home! Offer a toast to the school We hold dear, Youiwho have guided our footsteps here, Still watch over us, far or near. T. B. C.

CLASS PROPHECY As Phil Foster was leaving the Unemployment Bureau he met Bob Pellerin, an old classmate at Thomas Business College, who was also going in to collect his 82250. As would be the case, the topic of conversation was about the old school days in 1956. Bob: Do you remember the old days when we had to work? Well, some of the old class members have pretty soft jobs now. Blynn Galusha is now a free lance mattress tester and Francis Monahan, who also left us at mid-year is passing the time of day as gate tender at the Bronx Zoo. Phil: Did you read in the paper where Senator Gilman set a filibuster record in the senate. He talked for 184 hours without a pause. Sylvia Clukey is in the South Pole as ambassador to that newly formed country. She says she is rather cool to her position though. Bob: Alice Carey is now an ace reporter for Confidential Magazine and George Vachon is in Eugope as a foreign correspondent for Esquire. Arthur Blaisdell has also done quite well. He owns his own pool room in Albion. Carl Rollins resigned his position at T. B. C. to become Arthur's number one janitor. Phil: Our own Bob Preble is in Spain now. He is that country's favorite Bull Fighter. Bob's motto was 'if you can't beat em, join em'. Roberta Chase carries the banner of the U. S. to the Olympics this year. She will compete in the track and field events. Joanne Nivison also is a member of the team. She will compete as a member of the wrestling team. Bob: Marilyn Corey is here in Waterville. She is employed as a typist at the 'Fast Buck Finance Company'. Marlene Best is now a re- ceptionist at the V. A. in Togus. She acquired that position to be near Joe. Florence Reed has her own T. V. show for the kiddies. It's called Ding-Ding School. Phil: Big Bad Clifton Walters is a first Sergeant in the Marine Corps. I just pity those poor recruits. Cliff's former business partner, handsome Francis LaPoi,nte is out in Hollywood as an understudy for Rock Hudson. Bob: Pat Judson is now a model at a famous New York agency. An- other of the girls, Jackie Goddard, is out west breaking in wild pinto ponies. Thelma Woodbury can be seen, live from New York, on the Hit Parade, where she is a singer. Phil: Bob Lane is in Africa on a safari. He is after wild animals for the Farmington Zoo. That was quite a feat that Maurice Gilbert per- formed. He rode this year's winner in the Kentucky Derby. The horse was at quite a disadvantage carrying 365 poundsf' Bob: Carroll Harding is in South America as a missionary. Life is quite dangerous among the headhunters, but not for Fearless Carroll. Payson George is an instructor at his own school for the ballet in New York. Phil: I think the old class has done rather well. I imagine that the graduating class this June will also have a few bright stars which will also illuminate the name of Thomas Business College.

Arthur Blaisdell Clift Walter OUR FACULTY The faculty of Thomas Business College is composed of a group of well informed personnel, all with vast amounts of experience in 'their particu- lar Held. The founder and director of the Institution is Mr. John Thomas, Sr. He has been active in both the 'teaching and practical fields, and is now the guiding force behind the school. Unfortunately, lie is occupied with his outside work to a considerable degree, but he will always take the time to aid any of us in our scholastic problems. We, of the graduating class, have found him to possess a wealth of practical knowledge. It goes with- out saying, we look to him when we are faced with an imposing problem. Miss Mary Etta Bashier is second in seniority. Her patience is only exceeded by her abilities as an instructress in Spelling, Shorthand, English and Typing. Over her period of thirty-three years, she has assisted count- less students on their way to various business fields. Her contribution to the good will of Thomas Business College is an asset that cannot be cal- culated. Mr. Harvey S. Wheeler is third in the line of seniority, with seven years of teaching here at Thomas Business College. He has introduced the principles of accounting to many students, and at the same time gave them a good working knowledge of business math and principles of business. His specialty are the courses in Intermediate Accounting, Cost and Audit- ing. We believe that Mr. Wheeler is the backbone of the Thomas Business College as far as the accounting is concerned. His outstanding asset- is his attitude of helpfulness on any problem that the students encounter, regardless of the time or effort required on his part. The Law courses are conducted by Mr. John Thomas, Jr., a task for which he is Well fitted. IWe have received the practical aspects of law as Well as the theoretical. Mr. Thomas received his training at Colby College and Boston University School of Law. He has been a member of the State Legislature and is a Trustee of the Waterville Public Library. In summation, the faculty is srnall in number, but comprehensive inthe knowledge and abilities that they possess. We, the Senior Class, are sin- cerely appreciative of all of their efforts and accomplishments, and will attempt to follow the standards that they have established. We hope that all of 'these instructors will be with T. B. C. for an ex- tended duration, so that many more students may benefit from their philosophy of business and human relations. llq44L THE TYPING ROOM i' 4' 'I E i 5:- -5-'55 ' ...-'-f 5-f 55 U ,9 '5'55'5 5 Q L A N 1 I E X 6 f 1 iii UN DERGRADUATES Front Row: Richard Esty, Charles Hurd, Thomas Bragdon, Marvin Bolduc, Richard Talbot, Roland Huard, Richard Russell.

Clnnnbcrlain. THE UN DERGRADUATES My name is Noreen McCormick. I'm a student in an educational in- stitution. I'm a dumb cluck! The time is now. The place? You name it! My story begins at 9:00 A.M., September 6, 1955. I had been assigned to duty at Thomas Business College. My job? Learn something! 9:05 I registered. 9:10 It was a tough assignment, and I knew I couldn't do it alone, so I rounded up a group of fellow dumb clucksf' This Wasn't easy. I had to be sure that they were after the same thing I Was. Namely - TI-IE FACTS! 9:15 The dumb clucks met in the main room. We decided to call ourselves The Undergraduates. We hoped this would fool the teachers and enable us to get what we came for without their knowledge of it. 9:20 They told us where to go. This was their way of telling us that they knew what we were here for. 9:25 We were shown around the school. Being the undergraduates, we took particular notice of everything that might help us to get the facts. 12:00 We were excused for the remainder of the day. Tuesday, September 7, 1955. 8:35 Accounting - Mister Thomas, the UNDERGRADUATES Front Row: Annu Pillsbury, Rachael I-Icrarrl, BilI'lJZ1l'i1i Bcssey, Janet Poulin, Glenna Denis. Back Row: Eluinc Sziwtcllu, .lo Ann Oakes, Nancy Violcttc, Nancy Hunter, .loan Dow, Lor- raine Eaton, Joyce Parlcliurst. teacher of this class, began by giving us a short talk of the procedures to be followed. Each student is to arrive at 7:00 in order to complete the gossiping before class time. He then proceeded to talk about accounting, while we, the undergraduates, talked about him. 9:15 Typing-We were getting somewhere now. We met the only female teacher at Thomas- Miss Bashier. More facts. She began by telling us about the typewriter, and how it should be used. Then showing us where to place our hands, she counted to ten, while we made a sad at- tempt to pound the keys with each count. I will admit there was a good deal of grunting, but I think It was entirely unnecessary of Mister Thomas, Sr., to stop classes and make a thorough search of the school. Who ever heard of pigs going to school??? We were getting the facts. Miss Bashier concluded her class with these Words: Never trouble trouble, 'til trouble troubles you. More facts! 9:55 At last, a chance for the undergraduates to discuss the situation. Out come the cigarettes! On with the lipstick! While in another corner, the boys are discussing the facts! Did you see that cute blond? Did I! Their heads go together. Out come the combs! 10:05 Time for Shorthand. Again, we are greeted by Miss Bashier. In spite of her most interesting talk on the history of shorthand, she had trouble getting the attention of the students. The girls were more in- terested in Nipper Wing, the only boy in the class! 10:55 A sad moment. The end of shorthand and Nipper . Oh well, Jo Ann Oakes needed some lipstick, and her hair was a mess. She could use this break. 11:05 Math, and a new teacher. However, Mister Wheeler needed no introduction as most of us knew that he was the assistant principal. Because of this, we paid strict attention to him. fWhen he was looking, that is.J 11:55 We were informed by Mr. Wheeler that this was our noon hour. Be back at 12:30 , he said. There was some more groaning, but Mister Thomas had gone home for dinner. 12:30 English, and the shyness wears off. In this particular class there seemed to be a great number of comediens. But, obviously , Joan Dow produced more laughs with her mumbled comments. Her favorite seemed to be How about that! 1:15 This was our study hall.

We haven't reached our goal yet, but thanks to the patience, friendliness, and knowledge of our teachers and of T. B.

CO-OP The Thomas Business Co-operative is now in its tenth year of operation. It was founded in 1946 by Mr. Ford A. Grant, who at that time Was the assistant principal of the school. Its primary purpose is to give the stu- dents actual experience in organizing and operating a corporation, as well as being the backbone in most of the school social activities. Any full time student may become a member of the Co-operative by paying a twenty-five cent membership dues. The members elect a board of directors to represent the Co-operative and to manage certain school functions, such as the school store, newspapers, suppers, dances and what- ever problem that may arise. The Co-op's official business is the running of the school snack bar from which the majority of the funds are derived. Since the Co-op is a non- profit sharing Co-operative, dividends are paid to the members of the en- tire student body, in the form of gifts to students who are sick, wedding gifts to newly married students, a Held day during the last week of school and many other social functions. The first big event of the Co-op this fall was the sponsoring of the Har- vest Supper. This was held in the American Legion Home on College Avenue, and was considered by everyone to have been a huge success. Last Spring the Co-op sponsored a Spring Banquet which was the first of its kind in three or four years. Last June, a spring outing was sponsored by the Co-op at Bangs Beach. It was a misty day but everyone had a wonderful time. Similar events are being planned for this spring. It has been a privilege to be a member of the Co-operative, and I would like to take this time to thank Mr. Wheeler, our advisor, the board of directors, and the members of the Co-operative for all the co-operation that I received.

THE HUSTLER The Hustler - the undying spirit of T. B. C. What is the I-Iustlern? What is done by the staff? VVho is responsible for the publication? These are some of the questions your writer will attempt to answer. The HustlerN is a school paper, printed monthly for the reading en- joyment of the student body and other interested persons. The functions of this paper are to keep everyone informed as to current and future school activities, to stimulate student participation in 'these activities, to provide a media by which students may express an opinion on subjects of interest, and to keep abreast of the latest gossip. All students are urged to submit material for this publication. Starting as far back as 1947 when the paper was making its debut, the first problem was the selection of an appropriate name. The students submitted many titles from which the Hustler was chosen. This has proven to be a Very appropriate title - there is always a hustle to meet the publication deadline. The contributors who have worked on the staff include Elaine Ezhaya cover sheets 1955, Marvin Bolduc in 1956. Joanne Nivison, Patricia Jud- son and Joseph Duguay took care of the gossip. For this there always seemed to be plenty of material. Miss Judson and Miss Nivison took care of sales. Replacing them now are Miss Noreen McCormick and Nancy Violette, and on gossip, Arolynn Berry and Rodney Michaud. Reporters at large are Nancy Hunter and Janet Poulin who have kept the paper up to date on current and social events. Sylvia Clukey was in charge of the Cartoons and Jokes section in 1955, now being done by Roland Huard in 1956. The typists for '55 were Glenna Denis, Ann Pillsbury, Arolynn Berry, Jo Ann Oakes. In '56 all remained except Miss Arolynn Berry, and Ann Pillsbury. Miss Berry transferred to a different section of the staff. We also added two new typists, Roland I-Iuard and Florence Reed. The mim- eographing in 1955 was done by Glenna Denis and David Paradis. In 1956 additions were made to the mimeographing staff. A school assembly was held and the problems of compiling a paper were discussed. Many stu- dents at this time volunteered their services. The school spirit rose to a new high. Germain Plante, Charles Reny, and Raymond Quirion were elected for mimeographing. With a dead line set for the 15th of each month, the material was compiled and given to our competent typists, and then to our proof readers John Libby and Germain Plante for check- ing and then back to the bee hive, set to go to press. The paper also has a due date and must reach the students by the 21st of each month. In this way the students know just when to look for their paper. The paper con- tains the following: Cover, poem of the month, jokes, quizzes, puzzles, gossip, coming events and whatever the students wish to submit that they think is worth while and of interest to the readers. The proceeds are used to build a better paper and the surplus, if any, is turned over to the Co-op. The Hustler is under the control of the Board of Directors of the school co-operative. Due to the cooperation re- ceived in the latter part of the year, a considerable amount of equipment and supplies have been obtained which will enable future members of the staff to produce a better paper. Your Editor wishes to say thanks, to all those who have been a part of the staff. I have enjoyed working with you. The experience, and the cooperation received is worth much to anyone who heads any organiza- tion. I also wish to thank those who have given help here and there when necessary in order to make the HHUSTLERH a better paper, por- traying the spirit of T. B. C. David C.

HARVEST SUPPER On November lst, Thomas Business College Co-op staged its annual Harvest Supper at the American Legion Hall. Preparations were made by the committee formed by the president, lVlaurice Gilbert. Members of the committee were Maurice Gilbert, Joanne Nivison, Noreen McCormick, Roland Huard, Jules Savarin. The hall was beautifully decorated with orange and black crepe paper, to symbolize the harvest season pumpkins and corn stocks were distributed around the hall. The traditional supper started at 8:00 p.m. I-Iam was served to at least 150 who attended the gala festivity of the school year. In order that all could attend, postal cards were sent to alumni students. V Entertainment was furnished by Jules Savarin, who was master of cere- monies. Pat Raymond and a few of her students danced and performed gracefully for all that attended. I FIELD DA Y The 1955 Field Day was held at Bangs Beach. Everybody arrived on a real rainy Wednesday morning just waiting to release the energy that had built up dining the school year. The major activity was a softball game played by the seniors and the undergraduates. The seniors won the ball game, but not without a torrid tussle. The game was highlighted by many home runs. The game due to the slippery field was also a sloppily played game. After the game was stopped, a lunch of hot dogs and ice cold soda pop was enjoyed. Don Grenier, a fancy short order cook, acted as the host. The lunch was very delicious and enjoyed by everyone. Several other types of activity were enjoyed after dinner. Dancing was enjoyed by everyone in the afternoon. Frances Berkley and Richard Boutin demonstrated the art of dance. A volleyball game was also played. Oh! What a game. The volleyball was going everywhere but over the net. All in all, everyone had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to another field day in 1956.

New students were invited to join the sorority and initiation of the new members was held at the school, after which refreshments were served in the main room. During the holiday seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas, we gave baskets to two needy families. The students contributed food, money, and gifts to help make this project a success. The baskets were very much appreciated and the happiness we helped bring to the families made it a worth-while task. Installation of ofiicers was held January 11, 1956, in the main room of the college. The table decorations were a centerpiece of white carna- tions and two white candles. There was also on the table a white Bible with markers of White ribbon. The following members were installed by Joanne Nivison, the retiring president: President, Nancy Hunterg Vice President, Janet Pouling Secretary, Nancy Violetteg Treasurer, Jo Ann Oakesg Chaplain, Ann Pillsbury, Guard Roberta Chase. A food sale was held at Arnold's Hardware store on Saturday, April 28, in which the girls made pies, cakes, cookies, and brownies to sell. The food sale was a success and it proved that all the girls were good cooks. The meetings 'throughout the year were well attended. Refreshments were sometimes served after the meetings, and occasionally we Went out- to eat. Our last function was a dinner at the Jefferson Hotel. Everyone had a wonderful time and the food was delicious. Miss Mary Etta Bashier, faculty advisor, has helped to make this a Very wonderful and successful year for us. Thanks for all your patience and helpfulness.

Many of the pro- blems confronting your staff are commonplace in the business world and each member of this staff is much the wiser in having had the opportuni- ty of solving these problems for themselves. Our first task was the proper organization and delegation of respon- sibilities. The advertising being one of the most important phases, was assigned to three staff members, who in turn solicited the aid of the student body. A very successful advertising campaign was concluded with the necessary financial backing obtained to insure the yearbook's publication. Other major sections of the yearbook were broken down, and individuals given the responsibility for assembling and editing the material. Natural- ly, a yearbook takes the cooperation of the student body to make it a suc- cess. Most everyone in this school has had one task or another in bring- ing this yearbook to a successful conclusion. Many thanks to those whose assistance made this year's Thomasonian a success. Now that the Thomasonian has reached you, the staff hopes you enjoy its contents, and in the years to come we feel that it will become a treasured possession. The seniors and students are proud of the Thomasonian, the staff hopes you enjoy reading it. Marlene Best, Editor ALL IN A DAY'S WVORK Hi, kids! Did you study for your law test this morning? Me? Oh, I read over my notes during breakfast, that's all. I went to the Haines last night. Just couldn't pass up that movie, it was about a mad monster, very scary. There's the bell. Well, wish me luck in this test. Psssssst. Hey, Jane, do you think it's going to be hard? Mr. Thomas said he was going to make up a good one. Wow, look at all 'those questions. Let me see now, what is a novation? Oh dear, I guess I'll have to skip that one and see if I can think of the answer later. Oh boy, this one is easy, at least I know what arson is. There, at last that group is done, only two more to go. Ahhh, this part is true and false. That gives me a fifty-fifty chance anyway. Now let me see, the first four are all true so I'll put the last one false. They can't all be true, at least I hope they aren't. Oh-oh, only seven more minutes before the bell and I've got five ques- tions left. Darn, these are all case histories. This one's a hum-dingerl If A owed B 81,000.00 and C tells B that he will pay A's debt if A doesn't within thirty days, does the promise have to be in writing to be valid? Explain. I-Immmmmm, I remember reading something like that. I'll put down yes and hope it's right. I haven't got time to think up a good reason so I'll just have to let it go and pray that Mr. Thomas is in a gener- ous mood when he corrects these papers. Gee, I Wish I hadn't gone to that movie last night, I don't know this stuff so well as I thought I did. Oh-oh, there's the bell and I've still got three examples I haven't even looked at, plus those three I wouldn't do. That makes six wrong at least and probably more. What am I going to do if I flunk on my rank card! I just barely passed that last test we took. From now on I am going to stay home and do my homework. No movie is worth what I have just been through. Nancy Hunter WVOULD YOU START AGAIN? To be away from it allf' is a statement often quoted. Away from what - your real self? If this is hard to answer, then let us review a few facts. From which part of your life would you want to start over? Do you have a good reason for wanting to do so? If you do, what are your reasons? Could you, do you think, attain the position that you now hold, reach it again, or do better? Would you be willing to give up what you now have in friends, gains, and possessions? Why do you consider yourself worse off than your neighbor? Do you feel that it is necessary to keep up with the J oneses next door? Is it pride, vanity, or possessions for short-lived happiness? In any event, if all your purchases are charged one week and repossessed a few months later for lack of payment, then is this real happiness or is it being a financial slave, which you yourself used to create a false front to hide your true self from others by trying to keep up with the Joneses. In general, the day when people realize how well off they are in their present circumstances, they will be surprised to find that they do not actually care to start over again. Most people have had their share of ups and downs, and have found happiness in what they already have, be- cause they do not owe their every hour to the financial slave Bill, I believe we have in most cases a great deal to be thankful for, and we should not always be wishing to start over again. When a person has good health, friends, and opportunity for advancement he should con- sider himself fortunate. To have another chance when you make a mistake is something to be thankful for the rest of your natural life. As you live your life, you might consider yourself as being an actor in a play on a huge stage - the stage being the world, the universe of God being the audience. When you start over again you might ask, How much do I want out of life? Do I want more than my share, or work on what I already have, toward my speaking part in the play toward final happiness. David C. Paradis SOCIABILITY, COURTESY, AND DONATION OF YOUR TIDIE OFTEN PAYS OFF It is often taken for granted that a slip-shod manner here and there matters little in many situations, and a great many times this may be true. However, this is not likely on the job - not if you expect to be successful. Going to work every day can be a pleasure or a dreaded misery for life. It is to be remembered that to be content in whatever position you may be in, you must be happy and enjoy your work. To enjoy your work, to know what you are doing, and having your fellow workers want you to be a part of their daily happenings is where sociability comes in. The gift of being social is the art of being a friend. Whenever a friend is gloomy and forgets how to smile, be the one to be the good listener and wear the smile. There are many instances where courtesy has been the introduction to a new and better job. Many businesses pride themselves on the courtesy they extend to their customers. Courtesy is often the act of being tact- ful. A tactful person in a business establishment gives a customer a good opinion of everyone working in the organization. Not only does the buyer notice this attitude of friendliness, but it builds good will for the com- pany, and raises the reputation of the firm. Donation of time is one of the most important factors a person can contribute to a business, to a civic or charitable organization. Granted, we should appreciate what we already have, but also, we should strive to improve in the future. As the saying goes, When contentment enters, progress ceases. Being willing, helpful, thoughtful g by giving our time to help our fellow man makes a better world for everyone. To build a business often takes a great deal of time A contributed by many individ- uals beyond the regular hours required by present standardsg each striving and working together for the betterment of the businessg each showing ambition, working forward toward promotion. The essentials of the above are the essence of good business. It is these three products, sociability, courtesy and donation of time, combined with ambition which will increase your potentialities, and in turn will in the future reap you your long awaited success.

SPORTS AS AN ASSET When you think of sports you may think of a team running up and down a gridiron, a basketball court, a baseball diamond or maybe some other form of athletic structure, but no matter whether it is football, bas- ketball, baseball, or any of the other many sports that we have which are available to us, the same thought is with each individual participating in the contest. You are there with the intention of winning the contest not only for your own self-respect but also for the respect of your own teammates and those of the other team. Just what are some of the advantages of being a member of an athletic team? Let us survey this thought a little more closely. Take any boy or girl who is a member of any school athletic team, just what does he or she get from this team? If you were to stop and analyze this question carefully, you would see that this certain boy or girl would receive many benefltsfrom this participation in sports. A few of these advantages are: you receive training helpful in achieving a good, clean, healthy body, you learn to get along with fellow teammates, you learn to be a good win- ner and equally good loser, you make many new friends 'through com- petition with other schoolsg you learn to take orders and then put them into use. These are just a few of the helpful elements that a good athletic program can do for most any boy or girl in school. The athletic program may also help the school which has its teams rep- resenting it. Being on good terms with other schools is always helpful to the success of your school, town, or city. When your team is participating in a contest with another school, this brings spectators to your town, helping it to prosper. Yes, whether or not we have realized it, a well designed athletic pro- gram in a school is just as important as a well designed academic program. by C.
