The preceding 58 FACULTY PHOTOGRAPHS are part of the MOUNT'S FAC- 
ULTY, due to some problems beyond our control, we the YEARBOOK STAFF 
are unable to include ALL the MWCC Faculty, as we had planned to do. 
Whether it was a mistake on our part, where four faculty photo's were acci- 
dentally destroyed in the PHOTOMOUNT LABORATORY, or particular faculty 
did not make time available to have their photograph taken for this years 
YEARBOOK, these photographs unfortunately will not be within this section- - 
THE MOUNTS FACULTY, 

If we do have a candid photograph of the missing faculty it will be used else 
where within this book.

The Class of 1972 wishes to dedicate this yearbook to ROBERT H. GILMAN, 
DIRECTOR OF STUDENT ACTIVITIES. 

Although many people helped us along the way in our times of need, Bob, has 
been an outstanding figure in advising us, and most of all, in allowing us to 
make our own decisions. He stood by us through every activity that was held 
and helped to make each a success. He attended all the meetings of the Student 
Council and had direct contact with the Social Committee, Communications 
Board, Distinguished Visitors Committee, Yearbook Staff and all the rest of 
the Mount's clubs and sports. 

Everytime that we met with Bob, he faced us with patience and true concern. 
There was never a time when a student asked him for help and was refused it. 
Much may be said about a man like Bob Gilman, but words limit ones expres- 
sion of feeling for a man like this. 

We, The Class of 1972, would just like to thank you, BOB, for being there when 
we needed you, and for being the closest friend to all of us at the Mount.

FEAR 

by Bernard W. Madigan 

Being of a salubrious condition, one still cannot neglect a malady of 
one's inner self. The malady which I speak of is that of a demented 
child, or a frightened school girl. You might think me mad to have 
such direful feelings towards spiders, but the mere thought of them 
plagues me almost to the point of insanity. Dwelling upon the origins 
of this feeling does nothing but darken my most serene moments. I 
have travelled many a long mile in search of a place to hide my weary 
body, but those skulking, bloodthirsty creatures seem to subsist in 
every broad way imaginable. Not only do I have to badger myself with 
the hideous thoughts of one kind of spider, but an infinite variety, for 
there are as many spiders as there are maggots in foul meat. Thou- 
sands upon thousands of these unsparing spiders delve this terraqueous 
orb for their hidden and malign reasons. I have tried to exterminate 
these hazardous beasts, but they are much too cunning for my 
intellect. 

Once I captured one of these arachnids (only in a dream, of course) 
and kept it in a secure glass prison. I watched delightedly as my im- 
prisoned adversary scrambled about in terror. While looking at this 
strange form, I could not help but stare at its piercing eyes (all six 
of them), which never missed one of my movements. It was as if 
this creature was contemplating an escape and plotting what it would 
do with me in such an event. It would probably bring me to its web 
of sticky, fingerlike threads, crossed by even more fibers in every 
direction possible, and placing me in the well hidden nest, it could 
leave me as it searched for more succulent victims. Upon awakening, 
I found myself saturated in a cold sweat, which even wiping with a 
towel could not remove. And in no way could I remove or dismiss the 
feelings that this ruthless killer had instilled in me. 

These spiders monopolize my dreams and even my everyday activities, 
I have tried my utmost to conquer them, but it has all been ineffectual. 
You may think me a spineless poltroon with a phobia, but I am sure if 
you were in my place you would have the same feelings. Do not be so 
abrupt in your characterization of me, my friend. You see there is 
one essential fact that I have failed to mention. I have a very right- 
eous reason for not telling you that which will assuredly sway your 
opinions. My feelings regarding spiders are quite common for one in 
my position. You ask yourself what type of existence would have such 
anomalistic ideas towards spiders. I will tell you who! Me, a common 
housefly.

ODE TO EMILY 

by Alan Scott 

Most people are probably not to familiar with the great rat invasion of 
1967. In fact I believe, that other than myself, not many people have 
ever heard of it. But how can this be, you ask? How could the fate of 
the country, yes, even the fate of the world, be so endangered and yet 
no one even be aware of it? Well, unable to keep the secret any longer, 
and believing that recognition is certainly due, I offer this story as 
explanation. 

As a kitten, Emily showed no signs of being anything other than an ord- 
inary Siamese cat. Oh, there were a few mice and an occasional 
chickadee, but I figured this was just part of growing up. I'd build a 
little cross and bury the mouse, and Emily would say he was sorry 
but he couldn't help himself. We talked about it at great length some- 
times. Gee, maybe you think that a little strange, that Emily could 
talk to me, I mean. 

Anyway, by the time he was a year old, he had become a pretty beau- 
tiful cat. I'd come home sometimes, bury the mouse and say, "God, 
Emily, you're a beautiful cat." He'd give me a kind of knowing smile 
and then walk away. It was really nice watching him walk. He moved 
so deliberately. 

Then one day it happened. God, I'll never forget that day. I came 
home from school and there in the living room was Emily, toying with 
a rat. He was two years old then and I really expected better judge- 
ment than to bring a dirty old rat into the house. I was really furious. 
I was all ready to scold Emily when he told me that this was no ordin- 
ary rat. He was a spy, and Emily was interrogating him. He cuffed 
him and bit his ears, but this rat was a professional. He wasn't going 
to talk. I was starting to panic, but Emily calmed me down. He tied 
the rat to a wall and tickled his belly with his whiskers. The one thing 
that rats can't stand, even hardcore professionals, is to be tickled 
on the belly with a cat's whiskers. Boy, did that rat sing! Really he 
squeaked, but Emily had a pretty good command of languages and 
understood everything he said. 



68 



According to Emily, all the rats of the Soviet bloc were massing some- 
where in the lower Antilles for a full scale airborne invasion of North 
America. The attack was to take place the following night; the landing 
zone not too far from where we lived. I was a nervous wreck. I want- 
ed to call the proper authorities, but Emily told me not to worry about 
it. I left the room as Emily polished off the greasy little spy. The 
fate of nations is a pretty heavy responsibility, so, needless to say, 
I didn't sleep too well that night. 

The next day was average. I trudged off to school and Emily took it 
easy around the house. But that night, (God, I shudder at just the 
thought), Emily had me drive him up to quadrant "X". That was the 
name Emily had given to the field where the rats were going to land. 

We got there just before dark and hid in the bushes. It seemed like 
hours, but I guess it was just a few minutes before we heard the faint 
hum of tiny airplanes. I was getting tense, sweaty, my life flashing 
before my eyes. 

Suddenly the gray sky was filled with thousands of tiny white dots that 
seemed to grow as they fell to earth. Emily was up in a flash, slash- 
ing them while they were still in the air, chomping their heads before 
they had a chance to get out of their parachutes. He was a madman. 
He was ten cats in full armor, gnawing, slashing, swatting, all the 
time sounding his battle cry, "Meowwww!" 

I froze. My mind told me to help, but my muscles just wouldn't re- 
spond. I sat there in a trance, overwhelmed by the horrible sight be- 
fore me. The battle was over in about an hour I think. It's pretty hard 
for me to recall all the gory details now, but I hope you understand 
that this was quite an experience for me. 

I spent the rest of the night burying the thousands of little bodies (sav- 
ing some of the choice rats for Emily's dinner) so that the world would 
never know how close it came to such a horrible fate. It was Emily's 
suggestion, but thats the kind of cat he is, shy and unassuming. 

Well, that's my story. Most of you will probably think I've just been 
making it all up, but I swear it's true. If you don't believe me, ask 

Emily.

Like a spider condemned for its ugliness 

She weaves a pattern of delicate strands 

Accumulated by the monarch of reason. 

The inner volcano erupts. 

Emotional upheaval explodes as the 

Cannonball of reality 

Breaks the web of sensitivity. 

A corner, dark and alone 

Offers false serenity 

As the poisonous mist 

Clogs the pores of reason with 

Its chemical substance that splits 

The fusion of her existence. 

Leave me to my dreams 

She screams 

Lady Luck the divine prostitute 

Lies chained in her bed of chance 



Laughing. 



Leni Ilinitch 



And who gave you the right 
to sit, in your glory 
a self- crowned king, 
and pass judgement on us. 

To pry open our mouths 

extract our teeth 

and when we protest 

then tell us 

it was the right thing to do, 

that you had no choice. 
And it really didn't matter 
because they were mostly rotten 
in the first place. 

While behind dark eyes 

your lies take form 

to carry us on. 
And we, without choice, agree 
that you knew what was best 
for us to do.

I PITY THE FAIR MAIDEN 



mUbSB 



WBm 



(From Bob Dylan's "Pity The Poor Immigrant") 

I pity the fair maiden 

who's beauty affects her mind. 

Til it's cluttered up with her lovliness, 

and all other thoughts are left so far behind. 

Who's language is a mockery, 
of some good books she's read. 
To define that line more clearly; 
she speaks words which already have been said. 

I pity the fair damsel 

who's arrogance is her pride. 

Who always wants some handsome dude, 

But will never stay at his side. 

Who is admired, but still not satisfied, 
And who can touch, but cannot feel. 
Who seems to have some happy times, 
But who's sadness she cannot conceal. 



I pity the fair maiden 
who' s dreams of queen are many. 
Who thinks she has a lot of friends, 
But really doesn't have any. 

Who's person in the final end 
must shatter with her class. 
I pity this fair maiden 
when her beauty comes to pass.

Meaning of Academic Attire 

The caps and gowns worn in formal academic affairs in American colleges to- 
day are the direct descendants of the everyday costumes worn in the Univer- 
sities of Mediaeval England. Each school had its peculiar dress so that an 
Oxford man could be distinguished from a Cambridge man, or a divinity 
student from a layman. 

Because of the tremendous growth of American colleges and the attendant 
confusion which would result if each were to adopt a distinctive costume, the 
Intercollegiate Bureau of Academic Costume was organized. The Bureau has 
established a uniform code which over 700 institutions have adopted. Harvard, 
practically alone, still clings to its own traditional costume. 

The distinctions of the Code are simple, there being three types of gowns and 
three types of hoods for bachelors, masters, and doctors, respectively. The 
bachelor's gown has a long pointed sleeve; whereas the master's gown has a 
long closed sleeve, square at the end with an arc of a circle just above the 
bottom. The sleeve extends well below the knee, the arm coming through a 
slit near the elbow. The doctor's gown is characterized by a voluminous bell- 
shaped sleeve on which appear three velvet bars. The colors of the bars are 
the colors of the faculty which granted the degree but may be black. 

The hood is the most important and distinctive feature of the Code. The hoods 
for all degrees are lined with silk in the official academic color or colors of 
the institution conferring the degree and have an edging or trim of velvet, the 
color of which indicates the course or faculty to which the degree pertains. 
The lining is exposed when the hood is worn. The bachelor's hood is rather 
short with a narrow velvet edging. It is not worn by candidates for the bac- 
calaureate degree but only by those upon whom this degree has been previously 
conferred. The master's hood is considerably longer, has a wider velvet 
edging, and exposes more of the lining. The doctor's hood has wide panels at 
the side and is easily recognized since, of the three types of hoods, it has 
the widest velvet edging, greatest length, and fullest exposure of the lining. 

The black mortarboard cap with tassel is worn with each type of gown. Those 
holding a doctor's degree are privileged to wear a gold tassel. Masters and 
bachelors wear tassels that are either black or of the color appropriate to the 
course in which they are being graduated. 

Some of the colors, which may be observed at this commencement and which 
symbolize various courses or faculties, are as follows: 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White 

Commerce, Accountancy, Business . . . Dull Gray

To The Reader Of This Yearbook: 

This years 1972 YEARBOOK "HIGHLANDER", has been printed with an objective base and 
represents the efforts of the editor and staff to give the students and our community a written 
and photographic memory of the actual happenings of this 1971-72 year at MWCC. 

This years YEARBOOK, has a great deal to tell, but nothing to receive, this entire 112 page 
book was laid out from cover to cover with a staff of only five (5) persons, and we are very 
confident, that it is an improvement over last years book, of which we have heard was not 
appreciated. 

I my self along with my staff members attempted to, and set out to, improve it, and to produce 
this years book with a complete different idea and on new ground. 

It was our goal to have this book published with many of the happenings, and try not to center 
it around just a certain clan or group of people. We have tried to reach our goal in many ways, 
but due to some minor problems beyond our control, this was not possible. 

A YEARBOOK , is to be pleasant, at least that is our way of thinking, so we have not included 
any misleading or misinterpting things which may have occured throughout this past year. WE 
want you to be PROUD YOU ATTENDED MOUNT WACHUSETT COMMUNITY COLLEGE. 

I would like to extend credit to my staff who have spent countless and selfless hours working 
on this book, to record as many happenings as possible for this 1971-72 academic year, as we 
are all well aware of, it is not possible to get everyone's photograph into this book for one 
reason or another. 

My personal thanks to the Editor and General Manager of this book: Carl Rissanen; our Liter- 
ary Editor: Judy Joseph; our Layout Editor: Jane Marino; Photographer Editor: Alice 
Fitzwater; the Business Managers: Denise Doiron and Clem Lanza; Staff members: Theresa 
Pollari, Rick Manning, Mike O' Rourke, Roger Gutkopf, Ray Jensen, Ray LeBlanc and our ad- 
visor- -Robert Gilman, plus those people already named in our credit section of this book. All 
of these people have assisted in many ways by helping out some how to make this years 
YEARBOOK POSSIBLE. 

I remember back to when we first got 
organized to all those frustrating 
hours, finding the time to get this 
book finished, but that's the respon- 
sibility one accepts in a job like this, 
it has been fun at times, and upset- 
ting at other times, but all in all I 
have enjoyed it. 

Best of luck to you in your future 
endeavors,
