It was a great week-end wasn't it,
darling? After all, we ex-room mates
must have a good old reunion every
once in a while. . . . No, darling,
I didn't miss it at first. I asked Marie
about it and she finally told me you
had taken it. My old compact did just
as well, even though it was a cheap
thirty-dollar affair. . . . No, honey,
I was going to give you one like it for
your birthday. You merely forgot to
mention it. . . . Yeah, it was a success
going to the party in swim suits,
wasn't it? Do you remember borrow-
ing my ermine wrap because you
were cold? . . . No, dear, not at all.
You left in such a hurry, I'm sure you
forgot to mention it. I've another.
. . . Wasn't it a scream when you
put the fire cracker in Mrs. Martin's
chair? I thought I'd split when you
poured ink down Mrs. Chickester's
mousseline-de-soie evening gown.
She's very touchy but we enjoyed it
so much. But when you burned holes
in Jack's new suit it was so cute! It
gave me ideas for an eyelet dress.
Really, you're ingenious, darling. . . .
Can you imagine it, my servants all
left yesterday. Oh well, they were all
overpaid. But it was too bad after
all the trouble you went to, putting
pine needles in their beds so that they
would smell good — the beds I mean.
Yeah, that's gratitude. . . . My dear,
the Mona Lisa looked just like Hookey
when you put the dots on her face to
signify a four-days beard. Honey,
my little La-Salle roadster has been
missing since you left. Oh, that's
O. K. You forgot to mention it. . . .
Sure, honey, you're forgiven. There's
one thing I can't forgive tho'. When
you left you took my husband. No,
no, it's not that. But why in Heav-
en's name did you send him back?
That really was dumb! It brings your
high standard down, a bit.
A breeze of spring was drifting by,
When in through a window it chanced
There at a desk, a student sat
Studying hard about this and that.
He felt the breeze upon his cheek,
And no longer did the day seem bleak.
His blood went racing through his
For in the Spring Nature ordains
That when the gentle breezes come,
Work must be always left undone.
He left his work and began to dream
About peacefully fishing in a stream.
Soon drowsiness upon him crept;
He forgot all else — for now he slept.
Thelma Peterson, 38.
The water with its ripples grand
Winds a path amidst the sand.
Happy though it seems to us,
I wonder if it's ever cross!
Now as I sit and watch it flow
I wonder where it all does go.
E'en though my thoughts it does not
I'm mighty glad that it is near.
Eunice Arnold, '3 8.
Softly on *he flowers,
Gently on the lane,
Sprinkling leafy flowers,
Patters April rain.
Hear its merry music,
Mocking blue birds gay;
Watch the little puddles
Grow throughout the day.
When the rain is over
Everything looks new;
Grass and leaves will sparkle;
The sky is brighter blue.
All the world was grimy;
Nature washed it up —
Just as any human
Would wash a dirty pup.
Phyllis Peterson, Grade 8.
Jim shook his head, very carefully
at first, for it ached intolerably. He
lay in bed, enjoying the luxury of a
Sunday morning as well as his throb-
bing temples would permit him. Then
slowly, painfully, he crawled out of
bed and looked out of the window.
The sun, sparkling on the bay, and the
gentle wind blowing in at the window
seemed to mock at him. Suddenly a
dark, sympathetic woman came into
the room and spoke.
"Well, Jim, you surely made a fool
out of yourself last night."
"Now, Mom, the boys and I were
only having a little harmless fun.
They don't manage to get out much
and a class reunion means a lot to
"Yes, but what will the neighbors
think? Mrs. Pierce called up and said
that you and that Ruggles man were
out wrestling in the pansy bed under
her cherry tree."
"Good old Charlie. I hope he feels
the same way I do. Oh, my head! I
need a Bromo, 'pronto'."
I thought so. Tactfully indicating
a tumbler filled with the desired liquid
on a table, she bustled out of the
room. As soon as the door shut on
her retreating form, Jim reached for
the glass and gulped down the con-
tents to relieve his foggy brain.
Finally, his vision still slightly im-
paired, he lurched over to where his
clothes lay on the floor and picking
them up, automatically started to get
dressed. Suddenly he realized that he
was to land a load of rye whiskey
and Scotch that night.
"Oh, oh. I promised Charlie I'd
do it just once more, but if Edith
finds out — our engagement goes bust
— up in the air like a sky rocket —
hip — woops! Promised Ma I wouldn't
run that liquor again. Oh well, can't
let Charlie down. Good ole Charlie, a
friend in a million, the old walrus.
When at last Jim pulled on his clothes,
he slowly, lightly, with due respect
to his unreasonable head, clamored
down the stairs. Groawng he finally
got to the kitchen and tenderly sat
down to eat. He soon got up again,
however, for the food didn't help his
head at all.
"Gosh, Mom, my head aches."
"It will go away before evening,
son," she said, bustling over to the
sink. "You've only got yourself A)
"I know it. But if it doesn't clear
away bef»re tonight, I won't be able
to — er — that is — well — I have to do
a little job for Charlie. Nothing dan-
gerous. Just a little job." A look of
intense fear shadowed the face of
Jim's mother bafoae she answered.
"Jim, you're not going to — to land
any liquor are you?? That isn't the
job is it? — Why don't you answer?"
"Now, mother, it will be all right
I'm sure, and anyhow this is the last
job I'll ever do like that. Besides I
naed the money to get married. You
know what Edith expects. There's
nothing at all to worry about."
"Jim, you always say it will be the
last job you'll ever do, but instead of
working harder up at your office when
you need more money what do you
do? You know as well as I that
you're bound to get caught one of
these days and then Edith won't mar-
ry you. Jim, I'll give you the money."
"No, I ca«'t take your money,"
he said striding brusquely across the
room. "You know I promised
Charlie, and a White nevar breaks his
promise. I know the channels in the
bay better than anyone else, and be-
sides there's no danger, either. The
patrol always sleeps on Sunday nights.
I'm going to lie down now and sleep
all afternoon." So, slowly wending his
way to his favorite couch, Jim bur-
rowed down in it, first placing his
head tenderly on the softest pillow.
Mrs. White threw a blanket over him
then trudged upstairs to rest and try
to forget her wayward son.
When Jim woke up, much clearer in
mind, evening was just falling; so
stealing softly out of the house in
order not to wake up his mother, he
ran to his car and drove over to
Charlie's house to pick him up. They
whizzed along the main road until
they were about ten miles outside of
town, there turned down a side road,
and bumped along until they came to
a hidden shed where they parked their
car. After they had listened intently
for several minutes a rumbling and
rattling sound came to their ears as a
huge truck passed the hiding place.
"There th»y are," Jim muttered,
"Let's get going."
"Okey, big boy." So clambering
out of the car they went down a lit-
tle path beside the dirt road until
they came to some woods. The truck
was parked near the shore and several
men were swiftly unloading cases of
liquor into a huge, swift, gray boat.
They were silently recognized, jumped
into the boat and looked the motor
over in preparation for the night's
escapade. Suddenly one of the men
whispered, to Charlie, their boss.
"Psst, Charlie, those cops are on
our trail again, but we ducked them
about twelve miles back."
"Say, why didn't you say that be-
"Well, I forgot it until just now."
"Yeah? Don't next time." After
several minutes Charlie whispered.
"You all set, Jim?"
"C'mon then." Running down a
small wharf and dropping into the
boat, the men all started off except
the trwck driver who had gone with
the truck to meet them at the wharf
where they were landing. Quietly
running out of the cove where they
were Jim didn't open up the engine
until they were out on the bay. Then
the night stillness was shattered by
the purring of the fast running motor.
Fate was with them until they were
just entering the basin by the wharf.
There Charlie heard the soft beating
of a motor, and immediately after-
ward a grey boat darted out from
behind a b'ick schooner.
"Gee, the harbor patrol, Jim."
"For Gosh sakes."
"I can':. I'd bump into them.
Gotta go to the wharf." Then, as it
loomed into view, Jim tensely eased
the boat up along side, and quick'y,
before the others knew what was
happening, jumped overboard. Gulp-
a hues mouthful of air, he swam
rapidly under water an ' was a'most
to the shore, when he heard a zip of
a bullet behind him and felt a sharp
pain as it creased his flesh. The 'put,
put' of a motor made Jim look be-
hind him and see the black shadow
that was creeping upon him. Gasping
for breath he pressed on until he
gained the shadowy banks. There he
staggered over to a car, got in and
speeded back to the place where he
had left his. As Jim was leaving,
he saw two pin-points of light moving
rapidly up the bay toward him.
My Gosh, the boat," he gasped.
Speeding up the car, Jim drove out of
the bumpy road and toward home.
He drove into his yard, safely, and
he never ran liquor again.
Alison Winsor, '3 5.
Under the willow
In the dusk of night
I found a wee lily
With petals of white.
Over the elm trees
Thru the window pane bars
I searched out the moon
And I wished on the stars.
Then down by the pine grove
I found a queer thing
Wkh a sparkle of light
And a bright colored wing.
You'd say that I'm silly —
These things you don't see.
But as small as they are
Well — I'd rather be me!
Ellen Walker, '36.
I walked through the summer woods
And watched the baby chipmunks
They ran and scampered over logs,
And seemed to tease the croaking
I saw the woodthrush build its nest,
The woodpecker flaunt his flaming
But the best of all that I saw that day
Was the ^eadowlark in its nest of hay.
Woodrow Bergstrom, '38.
Oh, how I hate long dresses
That scrape along the ground,
And gather all the bugs
For yards and yards around!
Oh, let me wear the short ones —
So the fluttering of each breeze
Will not try my patience,
And I can walk in ease!
Dorothy Mosher, '37.
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT
One evening I was alone in the
house studying my lessons. Suddenly
I heard in the next room several tones
of the piano, struck in the most deli-
cate way. My heart stood still. Soon
it came again, tickling and irregular.
My pen froze to my fingers. The
sounds were too soft for anybody to
"Gosh," I said to myself, as the
force of it struck me, "the family has
gone to the movies." I was alone in
Now my teachers claimed that I
was a sensible boy when I did my
home lessons, and 1 thought I was too
old to believe in ghosts. However,
something in quality of those few
notes held me petrified. I found my-
self trying to bolster up my courage
by saying, "You're not very scared,
Only two notes were being played,
first one then the other, one sometimes
longer then the other. Now they
came in a confused clamor. "What
are you waiting for?" I said by way
of self -encouragement, for the sus-
pense was awful. So collecting my
few scattered wits and screwing up
what passed for my courage I started
toward that room on shaking knees
and wobbly legs.
The sounds came louder and faster.
It was a case of do or die. Then I
rounded the corner. The breath came
out of me like steam out of a factory
whistle. I staggered back, for there
on the floor, tangled up in the thread
that had somehow gotten caught in
between the keys, lay the family
Ralph Davenport, Grade 8.
The student spends four years in col-
Trying to gain a little more knowl-
Then four more years of drudgery
Before he gets his first degree;
And after that a couple more
Before he goes to an office door.
There, he hangs his hat on high
And waits until the years go by.
A half a dozen years until
He earns a living through his skill;
But once his practice gets a start,
His is an easy, pleasant art.

THE MAGIC LETTERS
Running her finger down the list
of names of the telephone directory,
Margaret finally stopped with the
name Elizabeth Bennett, 342 Charl-
ton Road, Forest Hills, Long Island,
"Here's a nice name, Marion," she
said, pointing out the name to her
friend who was in looks just her op-
posite. Marion had dark hair and eyes
and an olive complexion. Although
she was a little more serious than Mar-
garet, she was full of fun.
"Let me see! Oh, Elizabeth Ben-
nett. M-m-m-m that's a nice name
and address, too," replied Marion.
"Well, now that you have found a
name you like, do tell me what you've
got up your sleeve because I'm dying
to know," implored Margaret.
"You see it's this way," explained
Marion." I read in a book once that
a girl wrote to the person whose name
she liked. Well it turned out to be an
elderly lady who liked the idea of
writing to some one she didn't know.
After they had kept up their corre-
spondence for over a year, the lady
died. But the best part of it was that
she left the girl one thousand dollars
in her will."
"My goodness, Marion, don't tell
me that you, a sensible girl like you,
think that such a thing could hap-
pen to us."
"Oh no," answered Marion seri-
ously," I don't think that, but it
would be fun. Will you try it with
"I'll try anything once," Margaret
The two girls wrote the letter and
about two weeks later received an
answer. It turned out that the person
to whom they had written was an
old maid about forty. "But she really
seems like an awfully sweet old maid,"
This correspondence had been going
on for over a year when the two girls
were invited by Marion's aunt to come
and visit her in New York City k for a
while. The girls were thrilled, not
only to visit in New York but also to
have the chance to see Elizabeth Ben-
So a week later with great expecta-
tion Margaret and Marion were hur-
rying down Charlton Road in New
York talking fast and excitedly.
"What do you think she'll look

"A very busy man has no time to
grow old." — Andre Maurois.
Out I went into a forest green
To write a poem about a stream —
You know they say inspirations come
About the time when day is done —
So I seated myself beside i brook
That flowed through a dark and shady
There were plenty of flies and mos-
quitos there —
Really many more than I could bear;
But I gritted my teeth and started
(They can never say that I did shirk).
"There once was an elf,
Who lived in a brook.
In his pantry was a shelf
And there sat the cook."
Heavens! that didn't make much
It was really rather dense.
So I started again for another "try";
I had determined to do it, bust, or die;
But I took something else and aban-
doned the stream.
The next thing I wrote of was en-
titled "My Dream."
"The other night I had a dream
I was sailing on the open sea
When I saw a radiant sunny beam,
That seemed to beckon and call to
That was fairly good, but what else
should I write?
Surely no one was ever in such a

That to me real satisfaction brought.

Poems are a worry,
Lest I be tempted to write any more,
I'll end this one in a hurry."

THE SURPRISE ANDANTE

his smoking room when he suddenly
heard a shrill piercing scream. It was
about ten p. m. on a cold dreary win-
ter's night. He jumped up and ran
into the living room, but his wife was
nowhere to be seen. There was an-
other blood-curdling scream coming
from upstairs. He ran up calling to
his wife. She answered, "I'm in here,
Jack; get the gun and come quickly."
He ran into the room but could see
no one. "Over in the corner, Jack,
quick." He looked in the corner and
what do you suppose he saw? What
would you expect? Why yes, of
course, a Mouse!
4 A. M.
It was about four o'clock in the
morning one day in May when I was
awakened by the sound of stealthy
footsteps. Rising, I crept down stairs
in time to see a man go out the door,
carrying a spade. He approached a
lonely part of the garden and began
to dig. What was he seeking? My
thoughts turned to gold, diamonds.
Perhaps he intended to conceal a for-
It was then I noticed a shiny ob-
ject near him. Ah, I had solved it.
The shiny object was a tin can, and
the subject of the man's search was a
lowly angleworm, for the gardener in-
tended to go trout fishing that morn-
Kenneth Howland, '37.
The babbling brook
That goes singing along,
Is carefree and happy
The whole day long.
Filled with the trout
Who are lively and gay,
It ne'er tires of its task
Of gliding all day.
Fred Wadsworth, '38.
He stands there
Firm, strong, and straight
Looking ahead with prophetic sight
To see what the future holds;
But still his glance
Holds the golden light
Of years that have passed.

The atmosphere in the lunch room
is so conducive to eating that Miss
Friedrich's white rat, Minnie, ate eight
of her new born litter.
This spring there were various Clin-
ics at the High School, one a Baby
Clinic under the direction of the P. T.
A., another a Pre-school Clinic held by
the School Department, and the third
a Dental Clinic.
The baseball team attended the Har-
vard-Columbia game on Wednesday,
May 15. Did you throw pop bot-
tles at the ump, Boys?
People consider the younger gen-
eration quite hilarious, but in study-
ing Shakespearean drama the Classi-
cal English Class learned that in the
1200-1600's audiences were very
roudy, and if they disliked a play
would throw nuts, apples, and sau-
sages at the players, while the bal-
conies "ran all around" the theatre.
Edna Paghera has been having a
new escort on the way to school in
the morning lately.
Miss Coffin was the recipient of a
shower Monday night, May 13, to
celebrate her engagement to Mr. Fred-
erick Ward. Gu° r s she couldn't "take
it" because M" C'irk took her place
teaching the sixc* grade in school the
Gorry was working so vigorously
painting a house a while ago, that he
wasn't able to come to school. The
cause of this ambition — a car in which
he can go to see Ethel.
Nick, seems to have blossomed in-
to a regular he-man lately. Not only
did he rip Kirk's pants extensively
at baseball practice, recently, but he
also knocked Annie Edwards "cold"
at a maybasket party, Nick! !
What could it have been that Miss
List, the "vicious" woman, did to
"Razor" the other day which caused
him to weep so broken-heartedly?
Miss Frances Goodrich substituted

It was fortunate that most of the
maybaskets to the teachers were
hung early in May for the latter part
of the month was doomed to be free
of such activities.
The two goldfish, which amused
Miss Sanders' classes by swimminj
around all day, could not live in the
high school water and promptly ex-
pired. So now, we can blame the wa-
ter for our own lackadaisical manner.
The annual bean sprouting contest
now is in progress in Mr. MacKen-
ney's biology class. Edna Paghera is
the most enthusiastic rooter this year.
There was an assembly May 29 de-
voted to various things, the most im-
portant being the awarding of the
girls' and boys' basketball letters. At
The tennis courts are finished now
and ready to be used. The lovers of
the game ought to be willing to strive
to keep the courts as "smooth" as
they are now.
The Sophomore dance M?y 10
proved to be very successful al-
though the attending members of the
class did not breath easily for the
first hour and a half. It seems that,
due to the daylight-saving we sup-
pose, dancers were scarcer than hen's
teeth till 9.30 or so.
Miss Coffin's room and Mr. Mac-
Kenney's room have won the P. T. A.
attendance prizes for the year. The
prize for Miss Coffin's room was a
book entitled Our Little Polish
The operetta "The China Shop" was
given again Friday night, June 7, to
raise money for those organizations
which lost their funds when the safe
It must be great to be famous —
fancy being recognized as far from

ers are. Or was it the Buick?
The teachers took advantage of the
holidays, May 30 and 31, and went to
Orr's Island. Wonder if they had some
more movies taken of them.
The officers of the Parent Teachers'
Association were elected for the next
year. They are as follows: President,
Rev. Frederick Tileston; Vice-presi-
dent, Mrs. Paul C. Peterson; Treas-
urer, Mrs. Ray Delano; Secretary,
Miss Dorothy Rust; Historian, Mrs.
After interviewing many hopeful
salesmen the Sophomore's have at last
decided to buy Balfour's ring.
It seems this spring that the
prophecy of a baseball game is equiva-
lent to a promise of rain. Anyway it
sounds better to say "The game was
called off on account of rain" than
Miss Dempsey has now joined the
ranks of the horsemen, or rather horse-
women. She rides Maybe, Ruby's
pony, and we notice Ruby generally
goes along, too.
Now that the Blue Room has closed
for the summer, Fieldston has opened.
The opening Saturday, May 18, if an
example of the nights to come, prom-
ises a delightful summer for all those
interested in dancing.
"Ell" had an awful time trying to
make a poem for Helen. All she could
seem to write was blank verse.
Some of the most adventurous of
the boys (we'll mention no names)
were smoking in study hall the other
day. What next?
W've heard that haste makes waste
and Carl certainly was an example
when in a mad scramble to escape Miss
Hausman's clutches he tipped up a
chair and knocked her bag on her toes.
