"what though the radiance
which was once so bright"
be now forever taken from my sight
though nothing can bring back the hour of
splendor in the grass,
of beauty in the flower
we will grieve not, rather find
strength in what remains behind

K HERE COMES THE JUDGE:m
Despite the untimely rain
that drenched the May Day act-
ivities, there was a sizable
audience present for the even-
ing presentation of the Drama-
tic Club play. The format of
the play was a murder trial,
the entire audience and play-
ers part of the courtroom. At
the beginning of the play, the
clerk KCharles Shuman! called
12 members of the audience to
be the jury.
The defendant was played by
Becky Van Buren whose attorney
was Brenda Brooks. They were
so convincing that the verdict
was nNot guilty.n A commend-
able performance was also given
by David Zimmerman from Penn

mining physician. Marianna

Flying High in the Big Top
It seemed incredible. I actually felt like a bird
floating through heaven. A bird that was never satis-
fied with what it had, and just kept reaching out for
more. At that moment I felt my stomach sink and my body
decline. The goal I was trying to reach was too far,
thus causing me to fall.
The moment I landed on what seemed a thin eerie web
I envisioned glass stars glowing, against white and pink
cottonballs of fluff. All at once I found myself rest-
ing upon gold mattresses with multitudes of pillows
flashing exotic colors in every direction. I could
comprehend future and past in my eyes, it seemed. I saw
what I had been and what I wanted even more.
Then as if night had turned to day the pink and
white disappeared. The stars let out their last effort-
less gleam, and past and future seemed to vanish in-
stantly as if they had never existed. Yes, the goal I
.had wanted so badly I conquered. The past was new gone
and now was the time to think of present and future.

My own recent reading underlines
once again that formal education
per se is no guarantee of the progress
of man. Brought to my attention
from the February issue of the "Bul-
letin of the Atomic Scientist," Lady
Violet Astor is quoted as saying:
"It's a curious paradox that while
the miracles of conjuring tricks of
science are gaining these daily, al-
most hourly victories-conquering
the skies, bridging the seas, broad-
casting knowledge, defeating pain,
almost defeating death-we men have
not become any more virtuous or any
more civilized than we were before.
In fact, during my lifetime I should
say that civilization has reeled back-
wards. If in my childhood or youth
I 'd been told that I should live t.o see
things like concentration camps, tor-
ture chambers, forced confessions,
gas ovens, I should have dismissed
them as a nightmare from which I
would soon wake up. I'm often re-
minded of a story I heard . . . Caboutj

but for effecting the awareness and
developmentlof the soul of man. This
comes so often not from what we tell

abington friends school
since we entered the upper school, our class has been
guided by a helping hand and a cheerful smile. we have
learned the value of patience from a soft-spoken and
understanding teacher. we have felt her quiet influence
in every aspect of school life. we have always been able
to go to her with problems, knowing she would do her
best to help. her good-natured manner has won her the
respect and admiration of every member of our class, and
so, it is with many thanks that we, the class of 1968,
dedicate our yearbook to alice wright conkey.

Today as we dream the dreams of the future
And memories serve as the key to our hopes
A million tomorrows will all pass away
'Til we forget all the joys that were ours today.
We can't be contented with yesterday's dreams,
For yesterday's dreams will change and they do,
But sooner or later new dreams will appear
Replacing the old ones, becoming the new, today.
Today we are Seniors, tomorrow who knows!
Our futures are radiant and how the past glows.
Today and tomorrow will all pass away,
But never the joys that we've had here at Abington.

which was once so bright"
be now forever taken from my sight
though nothing can bring back the hour of
