Sen ior Class H i story It is with quiet anticipation that we of '34 gather up ou r books and dance-programs and step from u nder the gui d i ng hand of Colby-Alma Mater.

We heave no mournful

sighs of regret at departure , a nd do not droop with w i l t i ng grief, because we are looking forward w i t h the strength of what Colby has held for us: t ies of friend ship, self-confidence, and the rea l i zation of the breadth of l i fe. For these t h i ngs which make l i fe worth while we owe to Colby our deepest gratitude ; and though in our dull way we ca nnot cla i m to have i nscribed our names in Colby's Hall of Fame, we l eave her threshold fi l led with her own opt i m i sm and faith-our heritage for the future. -Eleanor Bridges.

Junior Class H i story We, the members of the class of 1 935, have j ust completed t he t h i rd year of our col­ lege career.

Many t h i ngs have been accompl i shed by our represe ntatives which have made

u s a prom i nent factor i n the l i fe of the college.

I n all fields of extra-curricula activ i t ies our

classmates have shown ability and have made outstan d i ng performances.

Two members

hold offices usual l y reserved for seniors, namely Captai n of Baseball and President of t he Young Men's Christian Associat ion.

Scholastically the class of 1 93 5 has made an env iable

record n umberi ng a mong its members several future "Phi Betes."

In the year to come we

shall not be content to rest on our l a u rels, but rather to make t he most of this fi nal oppor-¡ t u n i ty, to add greater and more worthy deeds to those al ready accompl i shed . Our one a i m in the fol lowing year is to do someth i ng worth while for our Alma Mater, which w i l l leave a profound i m pression i n the records of Colby . Laurance E. Dow.

J unior Class H i story Three years we have spent at Colby enjoying new experiences and prepar i ng ourselves for l ives of service. As we near our Senior year we more fully real ize the value of t he oppor­ tunities which have been opened to us and it is our purpose as Colby women to cherish the i nspi ration of our professors, of friendships, of knovvledge· to cont inue in l i ves of scholar­ s h i p and fel l owsh i p ; and to carry on the trad itional ideal s-ed ucati onal, social, moral, and spiritual,�of Colby. This i s the message and pledge of J u nior women to our college. Sylvia M. Richardson .

Sophomore Class History I n the 1 93 3 edition of the ORAC L E was fou nd the fol lowing sentence : "Colby should be consoled with the thought that, although the year has not brought rel ief from the depression, i t has brought to the college portals the Clas of 1 936. undoubtedly the fi nest ever to enter therei n . "

The tribute here pa id to the class of 1 936 i s phenomenal only because of t he fact

that after a year's se\'ere test the t ruth of it sti l l stands.

We have d iscovered that it is easy

to enter Colby to the tune of pra i ses but i ndeed d i fficult to come up to the expectations of th-ose who utter them.

The sophomores are proud of their athletes who have a l ready

made their marks w i th the Colby tea ms. atta i ned commendation i n the cla ssroom .

They a re proud of their scholars who have With t\.VO years more to pro\'e further that we

are one of Col by's greatest classe , we face tomorrow with the determ i nation to rise, con­ q uer, and ach ieve. Harold W. Hickey.

Fres h m a n Class History Thus far i n its college ca reer the i l l u strious class . of 3 7 has been noted for its rebe l l ious nature .

The fi rst real outcropp i n g of the rebel spirit showed i t se l f \vhen a majority of t he

students of the class protested ag::i i n st the trad itional "fresh m a n rul e s . "

Tt is more t h a n

l ikely t h a t t he class has b e e n thought of a s bei ng a bit t o o moder n i stic and a s t ry i ng t o overlook t he sacred ed i cts wh ich have been handed d ow n f r o m c l a s s to class. Such thoughts, however, :n u st have been l ost i n the maze of achievements that t he g roup, as a whole a n d as i n d i i d u a l s

has accomplished .

The athletes of t h i s fi rst year

class have performed not only on their own team s but a l so o n the varsity squads a fter the fi r t semester .

H ockey a nd basebal l has c l a i med freshmen for its varsity roster. Journal i sts

si ngers, a nd speakers also a re far from lacking. Natura l l y the class of 1 93 7 expect.; Colb y to give i ts me mber that others have received .

a share of the benefits

I t expects its constituents to absorb k nowledge, truth, w isdom,

c u l t u re, and to cont i n ue with t h ree more year

of successful e ndeavor to fi n i s h a nd pol ish

freshman Class History After Fresh man Week and sorority pledging, the Fresh man Class plu nged i nto cam­ pus activi ties in a big way. We managed to win a cup Colby N ight for the best song and stu nt. What with Gym <111 d Frat Dances we took up most of the space


the Plotter's

Col u m n with our freshman sensations. We were not far be h i nd i n athletics, either, tying for the hockey championship with t he seniors. T he Men's Di v i sion hel ped us with Fresh man Banquet and Dance, and t hey went over with a bang. We feel that we have made some l asting friendsh i ps and that there will always be outsta n d i ng memories of our fi rst year at Colby. Helen 0. Jevons.

Col by Fratern ities F raternal orga n i zations play a very i mporta nt part i n t he l i fe o f Colby students.


p revious d a . s great rival ry a nd i n many case s deep e n m i t y existed a mong them w h ich had to u n wh olesome campus relation�. At the present t i me, however, all u nfriendl y rivalry and contention have d i sa ppeared, and the fraternities have banded together i n harmonious con­ cord .

The socia l l i fe of the

ollege i s built around them a s a nucleus and d u ri ng t he year

each fratern i ty presents its a n nual da nces w h ich a re the source of great pleasure to members o f both di i s i o n s of the col lege. I nterfrater n i t

athletic contests a re real sti m u lation and enable men who a re not 0£

v a rsity cal iber to e n j oy the t h r i l l of competition as well as to obtai n much needed healthful exercise. This year a new fraternal orga n i zation has j o i ned the ranks i n the women's d i vision.


this t i me we extend a hearty welcome to Theta Upsilon and wish the Chapter great success in the com i ng year .

with a sophisticated Radc l i ffe outlook . . . . George Pugsley-enjoyed the year with caswell ­ i a n d iscrim i nation . . . . Betty Dyson-who fi nally satisfied h e r adagio longings . . . .

In the B.A.A. games a team composed of B u y n i sk i , S. Fuller G. Hu nt, and Bev i n was defeated by Worcester

Tech in the most t h r i l l i n g race ot the n ight. The team of B u y n i sk i , S . Fuller, G. H u nt , a nd

Bevi n came i nto i t s own i n the U n iversity Club meet and won a race from Boston U n iver­ sity and Tufts by al most half a lap. A two-mile team was sponsored for the fi rst time in the h i story of track a� Colby, and although t he team of J. H u nt, Bev i n , DeVeber, and Veysey did n't fare so wel l , i t i s expected t h a t t h e e xperience gai ned t h i s year w i l l b e of val ue to those rema i n i ng n e x t year . A freshman m ile t e a m w a s also sponsored f o r the fi rst time and proved q u i te successful in the B .A.A. meet · plac i ng t h i rd in a four-cornered race. The team was made u p of Edson Good rich, son of F ra n k Goodrich of Colby football fam e ; Steve You ng, former Hebron Academy ace ; Bob Marshall, a nother Hebron product, and Stan Washuk, ex-Cony High ace.

Freshman Track T h e freshman track hopeful s enj oyed a very successful cam paign d u ri ng the 1 93 4 w i n te r seaso n - w i n n i ng meets from Hebron Academy, Coburn Classical, an<l Cony H igh ; w h i l e losing only to the strong Bridgton Academy group. The season produced several outstan d i ng stars i ncludi ng Capt. Bill Dea ns, Stan \Vashuk, Bob Marshall, and Kerm La fleur. Dea ns appears to be o ne of the best h u rdlers to e n ter Colby in a long t i me. He set up a new i ndoor record of 5 .4-5 s. in w i n n i ng the 45-yard low h u rdles in the Cony meet and has equalled Doug Wheeler's mark of 6. 1 -5 s. in the 45-yard h igh h u rdles. Washuk i s a prom i s i ng spri n ter a n d broad j u mper. He holds t he freshm a n record of 3 5 . i n the 300-yard run and is the equal of any of the varsity performers in t he dashes and broad j u mp. LaFleur i s an e xcellent shot-putter and j um per. Marshall i s probably the best pole vaulting prospect to e nter Col by in many years. Eino Kivi in the shot put, h igh j um p, and pole vaul t , and Ed Good rich i n the dashes should also come i n for some pra i se. One /11111rlrcrl thirty-eight

There a re various problems w h i c h future Oracle Boards w i l l have to face. F i rst of a l l is t h e q uestion of photograp h y .

I n the future, however, such a proposition should be p u t i nto effect because i t would mean u n i formity of background and head si zes a s well a s economy of t i m e . A t the U nivers i ty of ew H a m pshire two days ( more if necessa r y ) a re set apart to ta ke all ind i v i d u a l and group pictures for the college a n n u a l .

A nother cha nge which m ust come eventual l y i s t h e estab l i sh m e n t of a constitution governing the election of editors a n d their assistants. Strangely enough a n u nw r i tten law has been followed placing control of this p ubl ication i n the hands of a few representatives of a few fratern ities. This hit or m i ss system of selecting the ed itors must be terrn i nated and a new businessl i ke , sensible plan adopted w h ic h w i l l spread the work on this a n n ual over a more representative port i o n of t he student body .

These celebrations, however, lacked the i n spiring presence of Nancy,

the White Mule, who was finally i nd uced to make a ba shful entry to the gym and give her Alma Mater's stock a boost for the next day's game with University of Maine. After the colorful entrance of the newly u n i formed band

playing Colby marche .

H. C. Marden, '2 1 , took the floor to preside over the ceremonies.

Mr. Marden, in h i s

c ustomary man ner, refreshed well remembered anecdotes t o keep t h e eve n i ng i n t h e usual Colby Night spirit.

Mayor L . Eugene Thayer of Waterv ille welcomed the returning

faculty adv isor to the Dartmouth Athletic Cou nc i l , who paid tribute to the Colby spirit and added h i s si ncere w ishe� for success i n the Maine game.

George Otis Smith, '93,

former chairman of the Federal Power Commission followed with an a m us i ng d i scourse on "Mules T H ave Known," putting the crowd in a humorous mood with a recital of some

questionable experie nces with the beast of burden, i l l ustra t i ng the appropriateness of t he a n i mal as the Colby mascot. Captai n Jim Peabody of the 1 934 tea m was called to t he floor next, and as spokesman for the squad, prom i sed a fighting eleven from the starti ng w h i stle to the fi nal gun .


Ceci l Goddard '29, A l u m n i Secretary, vvas ne t to appear, a nd he brought with h i m a veri table reu nion of former Colby football captai n s and managers.

The fi rst to be pre­

sented was Dr. Archer Jordan, '94, of Auburn, who i n stigated the fi rst Colby Night celebration held i n the l ibrary on the eve of the 1 894 Bowdo i n game.

Then followed t he

appearance and i n t roduction of many other grid i ron l u m i naries, a mong them Eddie Ca wley

Ralph Good, H e i n ie B u rckel and G i nger Fraser, ending w i t h the three most

recent Colby capta i ns, Wally Dono an, '3 1 , Mose Joh nstone, '32, and Bob V iole tte '33. Coach Edd ie Roundy took the floor next, and after l aud i ng h i s players for their loyal s p i r i t and cooperation, promised that he v.:ould send a determi ned team on the field aga i n st Maine .- President Joh nson was i nt roduced next and read t he e ncouragi ng words which were sent by Hon . Herbert E . Wadsworth , who was forced by i l l ness to m i ss Colby Night and t he Maine game for t he fi rst t i me i n years.

All present exprl'ssed regret that M r.

Many l etters and telegrams from a l u m n i groups the cou ntry over, encouraging a Colby ictory, were read by M r . Marden.

The evening was enl ivened by frequent music from

the ba nd, and everyone was kept on h i s toes by the efficient work of s i x c heerleaders, a nd the meeting was adj ourned to rush Chef \Veyn10uth's feed after a roari ng version of "On To Victory ."
