MASQUE Ray K. Linsley, Jr. James F. Moore . Robert B. Abbe . Michael Wilson . B. Allen Benjamin . G. Morton Fenner . Robert Day . Albert F. Smith Donald G. Downing . jf FIE earliest dramatic performance by students at Tech was the " Tech Minstrels” at the old Horticultural Hall on March 2 5, 1892. It took the form of an old-fashioned minstrel show, with black face soloists, chorus and end men. This initial venture was highly successful. Intermittant productions were the rule until 1911 when the organization incorporated its production with the Junior Week activities. Since then an annual show has been presented with but two ex¬ ceptions, the war years of 1917 and 1918. . . Vresident . Vice-President . Secretary . Treasierer . General Manager . Publicity Manager .

This year the Masque staged " The Little Shot” by Percival Wilde. Enthusiastically received by the student body, the play proved that the Masque has filled its prominent position among activities. " The Little Shot” was a farcical comedy in three acts. . . . Many strange things happen in New York City of an afternoon, but none quite so strange as what occurred to Clyde Middleton between 10:00 Page eighty-two

PEDDLER B. Allen Benjamin Arthur J. Scliumer . William E. Carew, Jr. Thomas E. O’Neil . T HE editing of this book entails hours of work on the part of the Peddler Staff and especially on the part of the Senior editors. Time is a valuable thing at Worcester Tech. Therefore if this Peddler fails to meet your approval in any respect, remember that the editors did the very best they could with the hours allowed, and justly temper your criticism with consideration. In attempting to depart from the conventional . Editor-in-Chief . Managing Editor . Business Manager . Advertising Manager practice of alloting the first section of the Peddler to pictures of the campus and its buildings, this year’s staff has collected together a group of pictures portraying life on the campus throughout the year. More pictures than ever before are printed through¬ out the book, notably in the Athletic section. It is sincerely hoped that the effort that the staff has made to make the 1937 Peddler the best volume yet published will be appreciated. Page eighty-one

MASQUE a.m. and the cocktail hour of a Saturday in January. Being a Middleton, and an honorable young man, to meet his obligations he hired " Big Shot” Scarlotti to “bump him off” so that he could collect his million dollar insurance policy which had a suicide clause in it. He gave his name as " Little Shot,” hence the play’s title. Imagine “Little Shot’s” dis¬ may when one hour after he arranged his demise his aged uncle died and left him eleven million dollars and no more need of death! Other things that he discovered included he was in love with his secre¬ tary, that he wasn’t in love with his ward, Pat, who lived most of the time at his expense in Paris, and that he couldn’t bear Henry, Pat’s latest attachme nt. Complications went from bad to worse when Henry was mistaken for Clyde and kidnapped by the “Big Shot’s” gang. Of course everything came out all right in the end—Henry returned safely, “Big Shot” proved to be a G-man in disguise, and Clyde and Mildred, his secretary, lived happily together there¬ after.
