WAROON AND WHITE SEA FANTASY One day, back in the year 19- I plan- ned a sea voyage destined to be a long re- membered one. The good ship, "Fortune Teller" was therefore scrubbed from stem to stern. and a neat looking vessel finally resulted. I sailed the ocean blue with my magic crystal for the realm of Fantasy. In my excitement I had neglected to take with me maps and a compass. but youth being exuberant, always eager for the fray, has no time to think of such apparent trivialities. In the end, however, these very nonentities loom as something big and ter- rifying. So it was with impetuous me. We sailed the ocean blue, my crystal and I. but we never reached our destination. "We are lost", thought I. Suddenly a deadly calm pervaded everything. The sea, too, was hushed, was treacherously tranquil. Certainly, this stillness, this change from the normal was a phantasmagoria. a hallu- cination. But Wait, another change is be- ing wrought. Indeed, I am demented now. -such things do not occur, have never oc- curred. "Oh celestial dame. hear me. hear me. I entreat you to spare me, to have mercy. for- "The quality of mercy is not strained, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the earth beneath." "What is that terrible rumble, that fleet- ing flash of light? The earth is angry, the sea is angry. our little vessel is unsteady!" It began to rain in torrents: and some Hshes whose faces were vaguely familiar were flung high into the air. The thunder was like that of Thor's hammer. Finally, an unusually brutish wave enveloped us and we parted. "Farewell, farewell, but this I say, to thee. oh trusty ship, you have served me well, but this unseen catastrovhe is no fault of thine." It took only a few seconds to say all this: in the interim, I was being devoured by a mon- strous wave. Fortunately, my faithful crystal sank with me. The brine was sim- ply sodium chloride, for I had never sav- oured such sweetness before. As I sank more and more, the cold almost slew me. for I am most susceptible to the cold. I NINETEEN THIRTY-THREE had only my crystal. A thought occurred to me. Maledictions are few! Why had I not gazed into the crystal before com- mencing my trip to see what fate had in store for me? Oh, man, the most asinine of all creatures. surely, your limitations are few! Enough of this raving and panting. -I was almost "crossing the bar" I was so numb. The tails of some gorgeous mer- maids were tickling me, and I am awfully ticklish. Finally. cold and bewildered as I was, I perceived a beautiful coral castle. which glistened as do the pearly gates in heaven. Summoning sufficient strength, I managed to ring the doorbell, and faint conveniently. When my faltering senses regained consciousness, I found myself in a luxurious palace. reminding me. strange- ly enough, of our own Alma Mater. "Heavens, what are those poor fishes doing there, working so hard with such eager expressions on their faces? She, who had revived me, stated that they were cram- ming for Regents. Can you in your flight- iest imaginings, picture these poor fishes under the sea studying for Regents so dili- gentlv? I should never have believed it. had I not seen it with mine own eves. Their inkwells were so dry and clean, that their studious faces were revealed therein. It is of course natural, that even scholars cramming for Regents should desist from studying. Therefore. we wended our way into various rooms. As I directed my course towards the music room. the strains of familiar and dear songs reached my ears. My gaze was arrested bv a figure pounding loudly and clearly with her tail upon the piano keys. Of course, it was none other then our gifted Ruth Walter, surrounded by the musically inclined: Bill Bartlett. Dorothy Colish. Dorothy Berman. Anna Consolazio. Margaret Jacober, Nelson Leonard. Alvin Roberts, and Helen Keith. I could hear above the rest. Lewis Willing. singing "Mother Machree". Instead of a benign look transforming his face, a most truculent one was apparent. Poor bov, perhaps he confused his emotions. Oh, music, wherein doth lie your power to soothe and enchant and refresh by the Page One Hundred and Forty-or
