ON June 19, 1913, I faced the cru-el world without a degree, (due to failure in passing an entrance examination in plane geometry), all dressed up in my cap and gown, and no place to go. This deficiency, by the way, has long since been made up, and I have received from Terry, I mean the faculty, my degree for four short years of residence in Cambridge.

With farsightedness, born of a college education, I had not made any definite arrangements about my future work, and the following week resumed my duties of the previous summer at City Hall, Boston. This served as a gradual step-down to real work.

In the fall I gave up my lucrative, short-hours, position to take up a job with the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company, Manchester, New Hampshire, cotton and worsted manufacturers. I experienced many thrills heretofore denied me. I never had had occasion to arise and greet the morn at six A.m. On several occasions in the past I had found myself headed for home at that hour, but this other was wholly a new experience.

Diversions in this lazy and indolent life were varied. I have indulged myself with reckless abandon, accompanied by two other 1913 castaways, in many Young Men's Christian Association orgies and debauches.

The following September I came up for air, and it effected me in such a manner as to suffer a complete lapse of memory. Finding it impossible to recollect my former place of employment, I sought another position.

My second venture was in the purchasing department of the Thomas G. Plant Company, Boston. I have since been in their employ.

From June 19, last year, to November 8, I was with the Ninth Massachusetts mounted orderly section, at El Paso, Texas. I participated to some extent in the social life, being elected a member (along with other members of the Class) of the Del Norte Bar Club. I am patiently waiting for the exodus of winter, in order that I may be able once more to take a few swings at the old pill.
