ln September, 1920, several hundred boys and girls took up the thread of their
school work again. Some were at the starting post, others were in the middle of
the course. and still others were entering upon the last lap in this period of their
This last group is the one in which we are particularly concerned. Great ex-
citement and plenty of interest was manifested in the selection of the class oflicers,
for it was fitting and necessary to organize early. A wise selection of leaders resulted
in the perfect co-ordination of the individual members.
Frank Lochner was elected president, Edward Casey, vice-president, Gerald
VValdbillig, corresponding secretary: Grace Forbes. recording secretary, and -lean
Sheehan, treasurer. -
The amount of the dues was decided upon and a committee appointed to take
care of the rings and pins.
Un December 16, the usual Senior llublic was given. 'lihis awoke much of the
dormant talent of the members and brought to light a diversity of skill in declamation,
recitation. music and dramatics.
Then, on February Q, IQZI. Frank Lochner, our manly president, a boy well
noted for his excellence in scholarship and athletics, and possessing those ethical quali-
ties which endeared him to the hearts of all the students ofthe school, was taken
away. lVe surely lost a friend. a counsellor and a leader by that swift stroke of
the grim reaper.
It was well, however, that we had the efficient Vice-l'resident, Casey, to
fall back on. The senior class. under his guidance and with his assistance. passed
resolutions on our president's death and had them framed and presented them to the
The most touching mark of respect and sorrow was shown in the attendance of
practically the entire senior class at Frankls funeral.
Soon it became necessary to consider whom we should favor with our picture
order. ln the meantime we were being snapped right and left by other photograph-
ers. A group picture was taken. which will probably grace and adorn the front
page of one of our dailies.
VVe want to make class day one of the most impressive occasions in the annals
of the High school. The class day officers have already been chosen. There was
a great deal of real spirit and enthusiasm shown in the elections. Nliss Helena
Cook, for class poetess, Harriet Fort, propbetessg Ruth Reedy, class will, and the
only representative of the L' sterner sexfl Nlerrill Patterson, as class historian.
lluch thanks are due to the faculty, who have loyally supported and advised the
senior class, and to the members of the class itself. who have made possible the
unusual success of the organization, and have contributed to the attainment of the
highest aims in scholarship. athletics and deportment.

The class of 1923 has proved itself unusually wide-awake and imbued with the
spirit of Albany High School. We have, however, no class organization, and, there-
fore, in a resume of activities, it is quite possible that many interestng features will
be omitted, since no record has been kept.

The sophomores have displayed exceptional talent at the chapel exercises. Roberta
Greene has given us a very pleasing vocal solo, and Fred Corcoran delighted us with
a beautiful violin selection. Constance Bauman, Adelaide Yaguda, Howard Noyes,
Harold Harbinger and Harry Gold have given readings and proved themselves worthy
exponents of Professor Howe's skillful training.
The second year class has contributed much talent to the school orchestra.
Among the sophomore members are Betty Colson, Sophie l'oskanzer, Frances Davies,
Charles Betts, Charles Miller and Seymour Cohen.
The sophs are represented on the midget relay team by Vincent lirickson. The
team was a winner at the inter-class track meet. A' Dutch " limpey is the brightest
star of the basket-ball team that won the championship. Hyman has also distin-
guished himself on the team.
At the inter-class track meet held in the gymnasium, the sophs won second place,
McCarthy, individual star of the team, displayed superior ability.
In Caesar class recently, Hourigan read a most original translation: "The

The girls who were elected members of Theta Alpha were rather odd-appearing
mortals on the day following their initiation, for each wore her middy wrong side

Edna Dewey, Dorcas Hager, Vivian Thompson, Majorie Greenman and Rena

XYe fail to understand the Seniors' luck, since we had ,Peggy Frost for a mascot, who,

ln these days of the ascendency of the working man, when the average laborer
is demanding greater wages than many brilliant college graduates holding salaried
positions receive, much doubt is frequently expressed as to the real value of higher
The examples of many wealthy men who have risen to heights of power and
affluence without the advantages of any education, so-called, are often cited as argu-
ments against the necessity of acquiring this form of training. But the fact remains
that the ability to accumulate wealth is not the chief desideratum of the educating
lf we are to judge the value of an education to a man by his success in life, we
should first consider of what success really consists. Possession of riches, in itself, is
not, or should not be, the criterion of success. Assuming, on the other hand, that
success is to be measured in terms of service to one's country, one's associates and
society in general, education is of supreme importance to everyone. For the acquisition
and the application of knowledge in life's tasks are invaluable, if one's aim in follow-
ing his career is not to become prominent in any particular field of endeavor, but to
become of the greatest possible service.
lt is an acknowledged fact that in any calling or vocation, a trained person is far
more competent than one not thus equipped for his position. Thus it follows that
the more training, the more knowledge, and the more skill in any occupation a man
has, the better able he will be to accomplish his given task.
However, the value of education is not only relative to the degree of material
success obtained by its possessors. lt muSt also be considered more broadly as regards
all civilization and society in general. Ever since the creation of the world, the accumu-
lation of knowledge has been directly responsible for the development and betterment
of mankind in countless vital ways. Individuals, perhaps, have sacrificed for the
. ,W Z
GARNET AND GRAY
promotion of the general welfare, but in the long run, culture has always triumphed,
and is triumphing today over the perplexing problems and evil infiuences ever present
in all countries.
Hence, the power of knowledge should not be overlooked today because certain
temporary rewards may be easily obtained by the unlearned,- for just as in the final
analysis, those profiting by the advantages of any successful ones are more likely to
become successful and of real service than those without such benefits,- those persons
who better prepare themselves for service by the acquisition of still greater knowledge,
eventually prove the most valuable to all mankind, because the Held of activity of a
truly-educated man knows no restriction.
RUSSELL L. GREENMAN, '21,
THE EXPERIENCE OF'A HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR
Education is planned for and administered to the studentg his part is only A' to
take what he is given," simply because he knows neither what he needs nor what he
wants. But how should the efiicacy of the method be judged? -it being accepted
that the results are sufficiently satisfactory-which, however, does not entirely sanc-
tion the means, since they are as varied as the instructors who employ them. Would
it not be wise to consult the student in this direction, since the success of the method
is dependent upon him, and his success, upon it.
At present, there is little or no profit in the method, judged from the four years'
experience that the student has acquired in its application. ls it efficiency to obtain
no profit from experience? Then why is the student's experience ignored? It is, to
a high degree, due to this very fact that the pupils, especially the Freshmen and
Sophomores, often lack proficiency in their work, simply because the instructor fails
to profit by the experience of the student.
The high school senior is an educated and reasonable youth-else his three
years' training is worthless, therefore, he understands or should possess enough intelli-
gence, to profitably inform the instructor of the weak spots in the scholastic method
and to suggest remedies.
First and second year teachers themselves affirm the difficulty of getting their
students to grasp the subject and respond to their efforts. Junior and senior teachers
frankly-and often amazingly-declare the insufficiency and inefliciency of many
of their students. Arguing from the experience of these teachers, we assume that the
method must be lacking, and further, considering the profit obtainable from the
experience of the advanced student, it remains only to profit by the former and suc-
ceed through the latter. This is nothing new nor untried, merely a practical applica-
tion of an old axiom, H Experience is the best teacher."

BATTER UP! .
After four years of intense training, we, the Seniors, hear the call, " Batter up! "
Some, before entering the league of life, will receive special training at college. Our
pitcher is Chance, the ball, Opportunity, the bat, Initiative, the bases, Success, each
baseman, Opposition. The fielders represent the factors which We have to overcome.
Some of us will knock " homers," others will get " singles," while still others will be
content to " walk," at the discretion of the umpire, human nature. As we look into
the future, life seems certain and staid, but it is really as evasive as luck in a ball
game. Of course, some will have to " strike out," but, even though this is most
unfortunate, it is a part of the game.

IN THE INTERESTS OF SCIENCE
"Ahem,- it is quite an honor to be the first to read one of the books of such an
author as Professor Reedf' Professor Galloway was as jovial as a man of his type
could Well be. H Wl1y', you overwhelm mel "
" Cut itl H advised Reed.
Galloway looked pained.
" Your use of slang is most obnoxious," he painfully lisped.
'A Forget it," said Reed, decisively, and then skilfully turned the: subject.
" Besides, I am not the sole author of the book. Dour, here, was my partner. Whyf,
we worked like a teamf'
" Huh! Team of mules! " answered Uour, sourly.
A few minutes later the professor of science in Columbia University, took his
departure. Quite scornfully, he disdained Reed's parting admonition to take care of
the manuscript. Hut Reed knew Galloway, and his absent-mindedness.
" lf we could humanize VValt," sighed he. " I suppose it's a risk to let him have
the novel, but-welll he'll take care of itf'
As Galloway journeyed along the subway to his home, he became engrossed in
a problem of science. All the way home, he pondered over the problem. Now this
may have benefited science, but it didn't the manuscript. For when Galloway left
the train, the manuscript didn't. Even on his walk from the station, did the professor
figure. When he arrived home, he went straight to his room, and continued figuring.
Suddenly his wife rushed into the room.
" Oh, VValterl " she sobbed. H l just swallowed a pin! "
" Never mind," he replied, absent-mindedly, and then began fumbling at his
lapel. " Here," he said soothingly, " here's another pin."
That evening, Galloway made the astonishing and disconcerting discovery that
he had lost Reed's manuscript. He was just human enough, and had jusu enough
regard for Reed, to make him bemoan his forgetfulness, even tho it was in the interest
of science. After that, his life was one vast torture. That day had been Sunday.
During the school days, he had little chance to escape Reed, as they taught in the
same building. On Klonday, he confessed his failure to begin the story. Reed told
him that was all right: he wouldnlt need the novel for a week. Tuesday, he lied his
way thru. Yes, he had started. First chapter was very good. VVednesday, the
" l'm-in-a-hurry", excuse was worked. Thursday, he lied his way thru the first
hundred pages. Friday, he just managed to escape.
GARNET AND GRAY
And so it was, ad infinitum. Day in and day out, Reed merrily pursued him.
He saw Reed's face in every cup of coffee, in every dream. To his tortured imagina-
tion, Reed looked like a wreck, Dour, sourer than ever.
Several awful weeks followed, one worse than the other. Finally, the professor
thought it best to let his wife into the secret. lt had never occurred to him before.
He always had had his own ideas regarding a woman's ability to keep a secret. How-
ever, she grasped the situation and its remedy, better than the impractical professor
ever could. And so the two of them looked in the lost and found column of every
newspaper that they had for the last three weeks,- that is, all but one. Une paper
was missing, but as it was of a recent date, there was not much chance there. Sufhce
it to say, they saw not one enlightening word. Then, at his wife's suggestion, he
hustled over to the office of the lnterborough, where found articles were sent. Here,
in answer to his inquiry, the clerk looked up his files.
"A manuscript you say? H he queried.
" Yes," the professor eagerly replied.
Slowly and deliberately, the clerk looked up his records. Finally he said, U Yes.
such a manuscript was found about three weeks ago."
Galloway heaved a sigh of relief.
" May I have it, please? " he asked.
" Impossiblefl- and then as the professorls face fell, the clerk said in way of
explanation, H You see, the owner's name was on it, and it was sent to a certain Mr.

pen! " and Mrs. Chubb broke down completely.
" The villains," asserted Mr. Chubb, signihcantly.
GARNET AND GRAY
Mr. Chubb recovered with surprising rapidity from the first shock of his terrible
discovery, and took his demise as cheerfully as possible. In the thorough-going manner
for which he is noted, he immediately set about regulating his affairs.
His first official post-mortem act was that of brushing off the flock of reporters
whose papers were already wallowing in the amazing news of the great man's timely
murder. He then summoned two sleuths and placed them on the trail of the
murderers. Later he went into mourning and made arrangements for an elaborate
funeral, while his wife busied herself penning invitations.
Mr. Chubb waited patiently for three days for some clew to his murder, but no
clues were forthcoming. His funeral arrived. It was a very successful affair and
drew a full house. Salimander himself ofliciated. But even funerals are, at times, not
encouraging. Mr. Chubb was growing more impatient day by day and threatened to
discharge his sleuths. He declared that he would rather be alive than dead if he had
to remain in suspense the rest of his death.
But a few days later he was gratified by the sudden appearance of his two

Messrs. Crabb and Squabb immediately burst forth with the following amazing
declaration, "I have discovered something."

You should be, but you're not," reaffirmed the bloodhounds.
" You're discharged," stormed the confused Mr. Chubb.

Proof? " queried S. Chubb with incredulity.
" Proof," assured they.

who had not eaten while a corpse and who was very fond of oysters, " I'm starving! "
HOWARD DEARSTYNE, '21.
GARNET AND GRAY
Born on Monday,
Christened on Tuesday,
Married on Wednesday,
Jailed on Thursday,
Sickened on Friday,
Died on Saturday,
And was buried on Sunday.
To begin with, Solomon Gundy was born on a lylonday. Nlonday, as all
pessimists will gloomily testify, is an unfortunate day on which to be born. If you
should ask which day of the week is the lucky day, they disagree. As the poor little
person being born has no choice in the matter, he might just as well be satisfied. So,
on a bright, shiny, wash-day morning, Solomon Gundy first wiggled his pink toes and
bawled lustily toward the ceiling. He bawled and wiggled away the next two weeks
of his young and very inexperienced life, until one Tuesday, arrived the day on which
he was to be christened.
There is a certain uncertain atmosphere surrounding, invading, and permeating
any habitat wherein lies an unnamed baby. lts characteristics can be appreciated by
only those who have experienced and survived such an atmosphere. As a matter of
fact, it is very nearly indescribable. The nearest approach to a sum of the varied
emotions expressed by the inmates of such a house, is distraction.
Solomon had, besides a father and a mother, several aunts and uncles, one or
two aged and dignified grand parents, and a host of well-wishers. All these had, for
two weeks, been choosing, discarding, rehearsing, and inventing names and other desig-
nations, whereby the world might, in future, identify this latest edition Gundy.
There were arguments. There were threats, pleadings, and promises. There were
prayers, even, or what sounded like prayers, from Father Gundy, concerning this selec-
tion of a name. Of late, he had sought refuge and seclusion in his club. When he
crossed his own threshhold, it was but to walk into the midst of a veritable barrage of
names, which, often as not, swept poor Father right out the door and back to the club.
There were so many people to be remembered, to be honored, or to be thanked, though
this latter is often dangerous, that he Hnally swore he'd give his son the first name he
chanced on. The thought had all the effects of a sweeping tide. Immediately, the
horizon cleared of names, and of names Fatherls mind suddenly became as blank as
an unsigned check.
As it turned out, it was chance that named the child. Up to the minute the
minister picked up his prayer-book, no one, not even the godmother, knew what to
tell him. It so happened that the book opened at a place labelled Solomon, where-
upon Father's wandering gaze stopped, transmitted to Father's wondering brain the
idea, and he had a name. A few minutes later, son Gundy's head was showered, and
he came to be known as Solomon. '
Solomon Gundy was married on Wednesday. Were he Chinese, this might very
easily have been the Vlfednesday in the third week of his life. But he wasn't, and so
GARNET AND GRAY
your calculations are upset. This Wednesday was exactly twenty-five years later,
plus one day.
What they had said of his natal day, the pessimists now repeated of the day on
which he had chosen to marry. This time, however, as there was a possibility of
choice, they were quite positive. Discouragingly so. They had their doubts as to the
advisability of marrying during the first half of the week, and also about marrying
during the last half, but to marry on Wednesday was positively flying in the face of
Nevertheless, Solomon spoke the deadly "I do " cheerfully enough, and went
blindly on to his adventures. No one knows whether he regretted it more times
than he thanked his lucky star for it. Like most marriages, his was probably a fifty-
fifty proposition. . ,
Now, while Solomon was very nearly as wise as his forhear of the numerous
spouses,-- no, he is not going to be a modern Bluebeard-he, nevertheless, and
unfortunately, lived in an age of oppression. The start of his great adventure, or mis-
adventure as it should be called, began in an unassuming manner. Many people now
in search of adventure, or at the least, excitement, can start the same way. To be
brief, Solomon ran afoul of a landlord. He called this man a profiteer, in the presence
of ladies, and several varieties of something else when there were no ladies present.
He received sympathy on all sides, but most of his neighbors were as badly off as he,
and, what is more to the point, the landlord would not accept sympathy in lieu of rent.
At last one day, in a blind unreasoning anger, he dared the landlord to raise his rent
even another penny. Without even winking his one, cold, stony, flint-like optic, the
landlord declared a IO per cent. increase, effective at once. This was too much for
our Solomon, so he took satisfaction from one of the monsters two chins, and then
gave himself over to the police. Thus it came about that Solomon was jailed of a
Now, Solomon had prepared for this emergency and had left his family in good
care. He figured that the six months' assignment given him by a sympathetic but law-
driven judge, was a much-needed vacation. No rent for six months, with board and
clothing free, looked good as a prospect.
He wondered sometimes at the strange emptiness of the jail. He saw and heard
only his jailer, an old decrepit fellow, who pottered about, continually mumbling to
himself as if in longing for the good old days B. P.- Before Prohibition -when the
jail was full. One day, Solomon asked him of conditions in the other world. The
old man knew nothing more important than that the County contemplated selling the
jail as it had no further use for it. Gundy pondered a bit, and then the thought struck
him to buy it, remodel it, and liven it up a bit, so he could live there. But how was
he going to do all this when he had not his freedom? He couldn't. He would simply
have to wait.
Then one Friday, while musing in his cell and recalling with grim satisfaction
that this day would have meant rent day had he been free, the door clanked, and in
trod the jailer, holding in one hand a letter which he extended to Solomon.
Solomon read: A
" DEAR MR. GUNDY.-AS you know, no doubt, the jail wherein you have
GARNET AND GRAY
resided for the past five months, has been sold. Owing to the fact that I am some-
what short of funds, having recently purchased several new motors, a steam yacht,
and some oil shares, I feel compelled to present you the following bill:

Total ........ . ........................................... S500 oo
" Hoping you will attend to this matter immediately, I still remain,
" YoUR LANDLoRD."
And then - - Solomon faintedl
This explains Solomon's illness which began on a Friday.
This was also bad enough in itself, but when, after a month's illness in a strange
hospital, he was presented with still another bill, by the contents of which he was
further indebted to the landlord monster, Solomon determined to outwit him, where-
upon he calmly closed his eyes,- and died! Thus was Solomon's event-day progres-
sion called on, for the day was Saturday.
Shed a few tears as you march in the slow procession behind the coffin of Solo-
mon Gundy. Shed a few tears and hope that you have a better fate in store for you.
Solomon Gundy's last remains were lowered into his last abode, tenderly and care-
fully, receiving at the last, the sympathy of those he left behind him. And as the first
shovelful of sod thudded on the box in the hole beneath him, the minister slowly
chanted: "' 'I i

AN EASTER AWAKENING
It was Easter morning. At exactly ten-forty-five, Miss Melissa stepped stillly
off her immaculately scrubbed porch. Miss Melissa was always punctual. The
Easter sun shone warmly on the timid little crocuses in the next yard-not in Miss
Melissa's yard-Uh, my, nol Miss Melissa wouldn't have such frivolous things
in her yard. The grass was green and bright in its new spring freshness, the birds
carolled " Easter greetings! " from the budding trees, and the bright blue heavens
smiled indulgently on the whole scene. These things simply couldn't be suppressed,
and so Miss Melissa philosophically did the next best thing,- she ignored them. '
She, herself, was the model of propriety. In her stiff black-silk gown and black
hat which had done duty every Easter for twenty-five years,- not to forget 'the black-

youngsters darted by with the least possible ceremony, for the prim old lady was

done every Sunday for- ever so many years. Girls in their new lfaster finery stood
in groups of two and three about the door. and boys, some small ones with .a noticeable
soap-and-water shine on their faces- and some larger ones with the shine more
noticeably on their shoes and hair, wandered here and there, tormenting their own
sisters and casting sheeps-eyes at other fellows' sisters. This condition, too, had always
existed, but llfliss Nlelissa had always walked primly by. She never noticed the pranks

without seeming to notice. entered the church. and sat down in the pew she had
occupied since she was old enough to go to church.
Ml wonder if she ever was young? 3' Young? OE course she had been, once.
Her thoughts flew back over the years to other lfasters, when she had not been a stiff
little lady in black. She had been a sweet, demure little thing, as a child, when she
had sat in that self-same pew with her mother and sisters, in her white dress and straw
bonnet. After the child, came the still sweet and demure young girl in her flounced
frock and pink sash. Scenes of other days were flitting very vividly through Miss
Melissa's mind. The brief joy-the blighted romance-the long, lonely years.
She wrenched her mind away from all this sad remembering with a,,su,dden resol-ve.
She would be young! She was a sour old maid, living entirely in the past, and there
was no getting around the fact. lVho would teach her to be young? Why, the
younggirl whrrhad- sown the seeds of awakening with her thoughtlessly-uttered words.
The girl had a sweet wholesome face. if she was a bit thoughtless at times. She
wouldn't laugh at a poor old lady who wanted to be young. Miss Melissa felt very
humble at the feet of this youthful little creature.
:Xnd that is why l.etty Marlowe walked home from church with Miss Melissa
that Easter morning. Linder l-etty's guidance, Miss Melissa began slowly but surely
to learn the lesson of the true youth, perpetual youth, the love of all things young.
No longer do the children fear Miss Melissa, indeed. and many boys and girls love
her delightful smile. Daffodils and crocuses bloom in Bliss Melissa's yard at Easter
time, and her blithe little figure fairly gladdens the scene!

THE MYSTERIOUS AND MARVELOUS MALADY OF
Two little senior girls from the Albany High School were spending the summer
following their graduation, with their parents in a quiet little country place, many
miles from the bustle and turmoil of this thriving metropolis.
These girls had always wished to experience the thrill of sleeping out in the open
air, for they had once belonged to Mr. Katijya's Junior and Senior Mathematics
Classes. Now, Mr. Katijya, although extremely rational in some respects, had had
and still has, the barbarous and inhuman custom of making his children sleep out of
doors in all kinds of weather. XVhile following this extraordinary line of procedure,
our renowned Professor of Mathematics had made a graph to represent the rise and
fall of the temperature. This graph, or rather series of graphs, he was accustomed
to exhibit to each succeeding class, in order that he might make clear the practical
uses of this system of straight and curved lines, and while doing so, he also advised
each student to become an open-air fiend like himself. As a special inducement, hr
told his pupils that the quantity and quality of his brains were due to his close com-
panionship with the pure night air, and that any one or all of them might become as
bright as he by merely following so worthy an example. So it was most natural for
these girls to wish to make the experiment at the first available opportunity.
So, one day, they talked it over, and after reaching an agreement as to their
course of action, the elder of the two, Helen, went in search of her maternal parent.
" Oh, mother! " she exclaimed, when the object of her quest appeared, " may
Ruth and l sleep to-night in the hammock, out under the old elm? " " Please let us,
for Professor Katijya said we would have more brains if we did as he suggested," she
begged, as she saw that her mother was about to refuse.
Then her sister running up, added her entreaties.
'A l am not sure that l can trust such small children," smiled their mother, debat-
ing the question in her mind. " You might lose the brains that you have, instead of
But at length she yielded, much to their delight, for the words of the wise
mathematician had fixed themselves securely in the childlike minds of these girlish

So, when darkness fell upon the tired earth, and the time when all good people
should seek rest, came, two very sleepy " tots " betook themselves to their swinging
:ouch with only the canopy of stars and the thick green foliage of the ancient tree tl
shelter them. But sleep did not come. The thick darkness and the strange shadows
all about, drove every thought of rest from them. To pass away the time, and to
keep their courage from ebbing, they began a queer sort of game. First, one would
ask, 'Z YVhat is the formula for the volume of the frustrum of a cone of revolution? "
If the other could answer this question correctly, she would retaliate by propounding
one which she thought still more difficult. And so they went on for some time, with
great success, for neither could catch the other. But at last one demanded, K' Can you
tell me what is called ' the mathematical gem'? "
"l haven't the remotest idea what it isf' confessed the unfortunate girl.
" Ha! l've 'caught you now! " cried the victor with an exclamation of delight.

But the sentence remained unfinished.
They had been so engrossed in the interesting discussion that their surroundings
had been entirely forgotten, but now they were brought back to a realization of their
situation by, what semed to them, the most unearthly noises they had ever heard-
In reality, the silence had been broken by the clamor of all the creatures that are
abroad at night, they were simply the sounds that may be heard any night in summer:
the sharp bark of a fox aroused a dog which gave vent to a blood-curdling howl from
:L neighboring farmhouse, the mournful cry of the whip-poor-will came from the
woods, the terrifying screech of the owl sounded from above their very heads, the
harsh croak of a bullfrog from a nearby pond. and the chorus of the crickets and all
the other night-bugs and insects, added to the confusing clamor.
This ended the game, and terminated rather abruptly the A' open-air campaign."

ON CHOOSING ONEXS ANCESTORS
To the purely imaginative person, the matter of choosing one's ancestors would
be, no doubt, a very pleasing task, but to the serious-minded, unimaginative individual,
the selection of a proper, well-pruned family tree, with strong perfect roots and
branches, would be nothing more nor less than a stern duty.
If we know nothing of our ancestors, it is very simple to invent a good-looking,
well-sounding troop of forbears. VVe should begin with a fine, old lV1ayflower

is more difficult to come to a right decision. If one has to choose between a stern,
severe, harsh, old minister, and a light-hearted, prosperous, generous old tradesman,
who was frowned upon by the town, because he unfortunately enjoyed dancing and
participated therein, which would be chosen, I wonder?
At this point, one wearies, and decides that he will discontinue inventing his
ancestors, and look up those which have really been given him. Accordingly, he
starts out a new line. He visits every old cemetery in his old home town and gazes
longingly at the name and date of every stone. He devours all the historic town and
church records. His immediate family has ancestors for breakfast, continued again
at lunch, and recontinued at dinner, until all and sunrdy say, A' let the ancestors rest

Personally, l do not care to look too closely into the ancestors I have, or to choose
new ones, human nature is never satisfied. Let well enough alone, I say.

chosen from those members of the Junior Class who have shown particular ability in
those things upon which the said board must pass judgment,- that he or she can do
and has done in a creditable manner the following:

2. Gracefully promenade on the walks and lawns in the company of the opposite
3. Neatly bite in two a hot-dog, dough-nut or any other edible when such edible
is offered by a member of the opposite sex in some prominent locality - such as the
center of Lake avenue.
4. Male members of the class should be able to slide the banisters of the center
stairway in the style and manner instituted by the out-going class, and female mem-
bers should cultivate an appropriate giggle of appreciation.
5. Maintain an intelligent appearance in front of the bulletin board.
6. Carry on a fluent and enlightening conversation in chapel.

Bl.-XXWlZI.L Girisrsox. '21,
One eve at dusk. as night her sombre cloak
Drew round and trailed its lengths across the sky,
That there, within its ample lustrous folds,
The sins and wrongs of waning day might hide,
A child of Earth, who longed to pierce the veil
That shades the future days from mortal eyes,
And learn the secret plannings of the Gods,
Upon the taway sands of time reposed.
And saw the " Steeds of Neptune " dashing high.
And prayed to journey on their backs across
The ghostly sea unto the land of lovc,
l'Vherein the fates of mortals are contrived.
ln yearning thought the child remained, until
The Queen of Uarkness dropped her cloak, and do
An evening gown of blackest jet, and placed
A net of glistening stars upon her hair,
Then raised her lunar scepter to the sky
lVhere'on, the mortal's eyes began to dim,
And soon the eyelids o'er them gently closedg
The child was floating on the Sea of Dreams.
Then, lol upon a foaming, pure-white wave,
A dainty shell-like barque came riding by,
And from its prow of pearl-like loveliness,
A youth of winged beauty smiled at her
As tho his magic power had transmitted been
.-Xnd given to the child upon the sandy
She flew across the intervening space,
And stepped upon the wonder raft, beside
The l.ad, who gently said unto the barque,
" Sail on." and cross the sea they quickly sped.
The helmsman uttered not a single word,
But in the gleaming moonlight smiled serene,
As if in contemplation of some joy
GARNET ,IND GRA Y
Unknown to human minds. And ever on
The phantom ship slipped o'er the playing waves,
'Till in the sky, the rosy dawn appeared,
And showed an island rising from the sea.
The travllers flew into the air, and sailed
Above the islandys green and verdant fields,
Until they saw a garden far below.
Surrounded by a high and snowlike wall,
They lighted on a fleecy Resting Cloud
That moveless there above the garden hung,
To more Qspecincallyj view the scene.
At first the wall seemed endless to the Child,
llut as her eyes became accustomed to
Its dazzling shine, she saw a gate of gold,
And as its guardian, stood an angel dressed
ln robes of heav'nly hue, and in his hand
He held a sword of flaming burnished steel,
" 'Tis Consciencefy low the Youth of Silence spoke
And then the eager mortal peeped within
The all-embracing wall and caught her hreath,
For there were budding roses everywherel
And as she gazed enraptured at this wealth
Of beauty rare, she faintly heard, then saw
.X sparkling, almost speaking fountain clear,
That played within the center of the bow'r,
And gave its waters sweet refreshment to
The roses blooming by its timeless stream.
Again the Youth of Silence smiled, and said,
A' The rose is Youthg the fountain fair is Life."
Then suddenly, announced by clarions clear,
Aurora, in her glowing chariot, flew
Before the golden gate, from out the sky.
And straight the angel moved aside the gate
That barred the path and thro the open way
She passed, and moved among the fragrant flowers.
On each she smiled, and as she passed, they seemed
To glow and give a sweeter fragrance to the air.
At length she sighed and turn'd reluctant toward
Her Moving Throne, as if in sadness at
The thought that she must leave this virgin work.
Then heavenward swept in eager, swift pursuit
Of fleeing Night: and o'er the scene
Appeared a mist that hid the garden from
The wond'ring mortal eyes upon the cloud.
The vapors rose, and once again the Queen
Of Light appeared, then disappeared. And yet
A third time was this pageantry rehearsed.
But now the aspect of the scene began
To change, for with each visit of the Sun,
The buds unwrapped themselves a little more
'Till one, the bravest of them all, burst wide
The bonds that held its wond'rous beauty from
The lVorld, and poured its perfume out upon
The Earth and showed the timid ones the way
To bloom. And when Aurora saw it there,
She plucked it in its glory, and against
The warmness of her bosom let it rest,
And took it to her realm etherial
lVherein it blooms, its earthly tasks complete.
And still once more the Queen returned into
The garden where she found - the roses bloomedl
And then she plucked them all and trusted
To Heav'r2's winds, who took them in their care
And wafted them to earth where they might be
Ot service to mankind,- too true it is
That earth hath need of youth and virtue pure.
A-Xnd velvet darkness blotted out the scene,
The vision passed, again the child reposed
Upon the sands, but deep within her heart
So deeply stirred, she saw that all things are
To be accomplished by improvement of
Such gifts as may be given by the Gods
That each one, when his work is o'er, may find
Deserved place within Celestial Halls.

A certain man did from his home set out,
And with him carried boundless wealth in gold,
Into a foreign land he journeyed far,

An institution, which would help mankind.
Departing thus, with plans but just begun,
He came by chance into a barren land,
XYhere by the wayside rough and lonely, lay
A little child, whose fate it seemed to die
From hunger. cold, and thirst, and endless pain.
The baby face was white and pale, the eyes,
As blue as heavln above, sought aid from those
XX'ho thoughtlessly passed on the other side,-
Desirous only of some earthly gain.
'Twas thus the third day was about to close.

!Vhen Life began to bid the child farewell,
.Xnd from its cherished habitation flee,
The weary traveler hastening through the land
Did from the hilltop to the vale descend.
The childish eyes once more for life appealed.
The pilgrim stayed his steps, and he beheld
The dying child! Could he resist that look
And e'er sit down and eat till he was filled.
And could he face his God and ask for help
If he refused what he in turn desired?
An instant more. then on the ground he kneeled
To give the faded rose to dring and eat,
And more, to find complete his great ideal.
All plans by magic were designed now.
Two souls went forth upon the King's command.
To-day the institution stands complete.
The child, the inspiration of the man

And give to them in measure as received. DOROTIIEA TDEITZ, '2i.

GJRNET AND GRA Y
The Philologia Literary Society has just completed one of its most active
and progressive seasons since the formation of the class of 1921.
The first meeting last fall was opened by llresident liussell l.. fireenman, by
whose unceasing efforts and prudent foresight 'Logia was placed at the head of
school activities and has been able to hold its place during the year.
Before the Thanksgiving vacation, the senior members made provision for
strengthening the spirit of the society. which has always been so pronounced ii
school circles. This was followed by a demonstration of the devotion of the H Old
Philologians 'T on Honorary Night.
About this time 'Logia. in cooperation with Doxia, Alpha and Sigma, and
through the assiduous and able assistance and supervision of l'rofessor liadesch ani
Professor Howe, made its first appearance in chapel exercises. a new venture,
which has already become a precedent.
Allen Bacon, chosen president for the second term in an interesting election,
continued the wise policies of his predecessor. The first important event of this
period was the VVesleyan Glee Club concert, held under the auspices of 'Logia.
XYhile the college entertainers displayed high talents as musicians and actors, the
unusual success of the evening was principally due to the efforts of H Al " Ludlum,
who headed the committee of arrangements.
ln the midst of the school year, 'Logia and the entire school experienced one
of the most sorrowful occurences in years. when Frank P. Lochner, member ofthe
society and president of the Senior Liiass. suddenly died after a week's illness. This
ideal boy will never be forgotten. '
On Boys' Day, February ibth. the twenty-fifth annual joint exercises of Doxia
and 'l.ogia took place. lloth societies were confident of winning the debate on the
question, f'Resolved, That the Federal Government Should Subsidize the U. S,
hlerchant Klarinef' For the first time the teams instituted three-men rebuttals,
which were delivered in the sam order as the main speeches, giving the affirmative the
last speaker in rebuttal.
'i-ogia's team was Casey. first speaker, Clreenman, secondg and llyer, third
speaker and captain. Though Feeney and Pattison of Dovia were declared the best
orators in the debate, the lLogians overbalanced this by their strong arguments and
forceful presentation, thereby winning the contest. Delehanty and Canfield won
much applause in the reading of the society papers. President Bacon, assisted by
President Fischer of Doxia. was presiding odicer of the evening.
As a special feature of the day 'Logia circulated its first issue of the new'
society news sheet, the " Cherry and Cream," which was edited by Greenman. its
success, like its publishing, was spasmodic,
ILIRXET ,IND CRJ Y
At the Boys' Day dance 'Logia surprised the other societies by displaying a
new banner secured through the efforts of Harder and Gallien.
The third term has been conducted by john UI. Canfield, the last president of
this school year, during whose term ten members of the freshman class were recently
initiated into the society.
Not only does the successful termination of these numerous events express the
prosperity of 'Logia during the present season, but also, and even with higher honor,
does the splendid work of its activities stand conspicuously, and upon it 'Logia pro-
nounces its only boast.
Doxia has enjoyed a prosperous year. Under the leadership of three pi'esidents,
Charles Fischer, Nlaurice Nlaercklin, and Howard Lee. literary work has been
improved. With weekly debates and similar literary work, a firm foundation has been
laid for the coming year. .Xlthough defeated in the annual lloys' Day llebate, by a
two-to-one decision, Doxians are proud of the fact that Nlaurice Feeney was awarded
the first individual speaker's prize, and that Robert l'attinson received the honorable
mention. The debating team was composed of Howard Lee. '21, Robert Pattinson,
,2l, and Maurice Feeney, ,22, with Charles lfischer, '11, as alternate.
The annual l.ogia-lloxia basketball games resulted in victories for both l7oxia's
First Team and Nlidgets. The lineup of the First Team was: Empie. Capt. Leitzell,
Simpson, Stanley, Klein. Hyman, P. Davis and F. Davis. The hlidgets were:
Gwynn, Capt., Xkalsh, Mace, llraun, Shultes and hlchlartin.
The active body attended the banquet of the Honorary Doxians held at the
Albany Club on lN'Iarch 31. A good time was enjoyed by all. The actives are
pleased at the decision of the Honoraries to invited all Uoxians in the future.
lloxia has participated in the chapel exercisesion several occasions and the
speakers always upheld the traditions of the society.
The officers are: Howard Lee, President, Robert Pattinson, Vice-Presidentg

'THETA SIGMA , -
Theta Sigma is fast nearing the end of an altogether busy and successful school
year. The remaining two months hold promises of still more absorbing work yet to

This year, as in others, the girls have thoroughly studied the lines and works
fof a great many standard authors. Four especially good papers on several of these
authors were given by Ruth Hanford, Uorthea Ueitz, Frances Gavit and Florence
hlany well-prepared readings, fine worthwhile debates and three clever sketches,
all formed an important part in the plan for this year.

Four very clever Pzznsophians were read by janet Xlclxarlane, U llare H Hurd,

which she is to read on Girls' Day.
Alpha and Sigma held a joint dance on the twenty-ninth oi January. The
" gym 'l was attractively decorated for Valentines Day and the affair proved to be
very much of a success. Another one of our good times was the mrush H party, given
for our Sophomore pledges on the first of April. There was an arranged program,
consisting of a mock wedding, several piano and vocal selections and a joke paper by
Vivien Hart. At the conclusion of the entertainment, we had a H party " and danced
until 6 o'cloclc. The Sophomores couldn't possibly have enjoyed themselves as much
as we didl
Sigma has several times contributed to the Friday morning chapel exercises, held
in connection with the other three literary societies. Her representatives have in all
cases ably demonstrated the things which we have been attempting to do during this
The accomplishment of so many things and the very evident success of our year
are in a very large measure due to the leadership of Helen Cook. Under her presi-
dency we have tried hard to live up to the ideals of Sigma and to 'carry out our work
as the founders of the society would have wished it.
Another year gone by and the good old ship 'L Theta Alpha " sails serenely into
the harbor. lts crew considers this last voyage a very successful one, considering
that it has been buffeted by many storms and winds.
Xlie stopped twice to procure supplies on our trip into strange lands. Last fail
we took on several new sailors to help replace those who had finished their coursb
and were ready for further experience in life. This spring we added a great many
sailors from the Sophomore Class, so that the older sailors, who are going to leave
in june, might have an opportunity to train them for their various duties.
We had some very interesting times on our trip, among them we remember
the dances, spreads and initiations, where we had so much iun together.
lluring this voyage the Captain of all the ships made a plan in which each of
the ships should send a representative to show the people what the sailors were
doing. 'A Theta Alpha " has sent quite a few sailors who presented humorous
poems and declamations. " Theta Alpha " also tried to resurrect some of the old poems
which have been almost forgotten and tried to present them to the entire satisfaction
of the people.
VVhile we were traveling we were also busy on board studying the poets, their
lives and works, and several sailors from the crew presented very clever issues of the
Aegis in costume.

At one of the meetings we had a debate on the question, H Resolved, Should the
United Traction cars be operated by Non-Union lVIen," and during the year we

The Orchestra, although seriously handicapped by the absence oflour able director,
Professor Oliver, during several months, has continued the fine work of previous
years. lts personnel of about fifty members has been thoroughly trained and instructed,
and has rendered several splendid programs before the school and at various publics.
Under the leadership of Harriet Fort, President, and the direction of Glenn lvl.
Davis, head of the French Department, the French Club has completed a very active
season. Several lectures by prominent citizens have been given and a splendid public
program was presented.
'lihe 'llhird Hlatinee of this organization. at which two comedies and various
other features were presented in French. was a notable success, and displayed, with
much credit, the work of the students in the French Department.
For the first time since the Garnet and Gray has been published, a picture of a
Military Training l'nit is shown in its pages. lluring the last year the two lnfantry
Companies and the Cavalry Unit have been particularly active in school affairs. Since
compulsory military training has been abolished by a recent act of the Legislature, this
will probably be the last appearance of any military organization in our school.
GJRNET AND GRAY
Although there has been no organized society for the presentation of dramatics,
students of the Junior and Senior Classes produced two very creditable one-act
playlets, under the very able supervision of Professor Howe.. Two of the literary
societies have also produced short sketches which were well received by the school.
As usual, the high school selected a representative debating team to enter the
Rutgers lnterscholastic League. The tryouts were held the week of the annual
Boys' Day debate, and for this reason two of the best debaters in school failed to com-
pete. However, a fairly strong team was selected, consisting of Edward Casey,
first speaker, Helena lf. Cook, the first girl ever chosen for a public debate in the
Albany High School, second speaker, and Russell L. Greenman, Captain and third
speaker. VVhile handicapped by lack of experience and time for preparation, the
team, with the valuable coaching of Mr. Kadesth, put up a hard tight at Schenectady,
debating the high school of that city. However, because of weakness in rebuttal, the
judges decision was 2 to 1 against the Albany team. although our representatives were
credited with presenting far better constructive speeches than our opponents.
There has been a great increase of interest in public speaking this year in school
and a number of capable speakers have been developed in the Elocution Department
under the direction of Nlr. Howe. The weekly appearance of representatives of the
various literary societies at the chapel exercises caused a greater numberi of students to
become interestd in this activity.
Several important trial contests have been held, at which several students were
selected to represent the school in various contests. ln the Rotary Club contest, which
was a combination of essay writing and public speaking, three boys writing the best
essays on 'lVVashington's Foreign Policy." were awarded prizes, and the first two
were selected to speak at a public meeting in Chancellors' Hall, in competition for the
award, a trip to 'XVashington for the lnauguration of President Harding. Ralph E.
Northrup and Frank B. Dyer were the speakers who won first and second prizes,
respectively. and YVerner Pigors was awarded the third prize.
ln the tryouts for the preliminary contest at Xkaterford, of the Hamilton Speaking
Contest, in which practically all the .Iunior and Senior boys taking elocution com-
peted, Frank B. Dyer was selected and Russell L. Greenman was chosen alternate.
Honorable mention was given Maurice l7eeney, Robert McCormack, and Samuel Katz.
Several weeks later, occurred the competition to send a representative from the
Albany High School to the Colgate Extemporancous Contest to be held at that Col-
lege. The student selected was Russell L. Greenman while Joseph VV. Lewi was
The tryouts for Class-Day speakers were also held and four boys, Frank B. Dyer,
Russell Greenman, llerrill Patterson and Robert Patterson, and four girls, Helena E.
Cook, Harriet Fort, Margaret Parsons and Ruth Reedy were chosen to speak for the
prize medals to be awarded at graduation. V

XVitli the exception of three contests, the Garnet and Gray took the games of
tl.e season from their strong opponents. Two of the three mentioned resulted in
scoreless ties, one with Kingston High school on their own grounds and the other

lt is with regret that a detailed account of the basketball season is impossible
because of space regulations. The season, as most loyal athletic members of the
high school know, could hardly have been expected to have been more successful.
The boys copped the championship of the league by defeating Schenectady and Glens
Falls high schools in the final contests, the latter tilt being the grand finale, at least
for the upstaters. Following their success at Schenectady, a team was sent to Syra-
cuse to compete for State High school honors, but was unsuccessful.
'X Frankfurters and Beans " might easily have been the cause of the VVaterloo
of the Garnet and Gray boys at Syracuse, for it was this dainty delicacy that our
prized champions were fed before taking on the A' Bug House l' boys from Pough-
keepsie in the first contest, who finally won the state championship, having as their
opponents in the second tilt, Johnstown. The difference in the final score between
the ,Xlbany and down river boys can be accounted for in lfmpiels sickness in the
latter half, which took him out of the game when the score was in favor of the
Garnet and Gray. The score was 35 to 31 at the end.
lJarwin's principle of the survival of the fittest worked out in that contest, as it
did in the many tilts which brought the sectional title to the Garnet and Gray.
Great honor was done the down river team by letting them win from Coach Yavits'
stars. as they were one of the few allowed the opportunity.
GARNET AND GRAY
As the season's record has already been summed up, there is no need for taking
the space in this issue, except to mention the 21 to I4 score over the Dorpians on
our home court and the 22 to I7 defeat of the Glens Falls team, which put the
laurels on the heads of the following members of the Garnet and Gray team: Cap-
tain Leon Klein, Kenneth " Dutch H Empie, David Clark, Ward 'fToof" Jones,
Edward Simpson, Ralph Leitzell, Harlow lyletzgar and Hyman.
The Seniors captured the indoor interclass meet with 35 points, and Alfred
Ludlum of that class took individual honors in scoring. At the Armory meet, later,
the team was not so successful, taking third place in the relay against the C. B. A.
and Schenectady High school teams, the former winning out and the latter taking
-second place. Coach Boyson, however, prepared an allround championship high
school team to take down to Philadelphia for the Penn state track carnival, and for
the interscholastic meet at Schenectady for the championship of the Adirondack divi-
NVell, coach and boys, here's all the good wishes for your expectations and there
is no doubt but that they will be fulfilled.
The aquatic squad, composed of the four last year's men, Allen Bacon, Shields
Bruce, Benjamin Cohen and Benjamin Cann, have started off on their run for the
second championship in as many years in the competition, taking the honors last year
at the R. P. l. tank. In the A' All for Glory H meet at Union college recently, they
competed out of their class and took places in all events, winning all the scholastic
events. Cann is the 100-yard dash open champion of the section.
A hearty wish for good luck in your contests, boys, is expressed by every stu-
dent in the school.
GIRLS' ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT
XYith the coming of spring, the girls of the school have demonstrated to us the
splendid work they have been doing during the year, and have also decided the
superior teams in the different sports by staging inter-class contests.
The Sen.-Jr. preliminaries for the basket ball tournament were held April the
2nd, and the Soph.-lfresh. April 29th. Though the preliminary games were open only
'to members of the basket ball classes, the hnals, held April 14th, were open to all the
girls of the school. The following are the captains and managers of the teams:

The girls enjoyed a party at the preliminary games, the Sen.-jun. committee of
arrangements being Grace Forbes, Geraldine Leonard, Klary Bull, Helen Miller,
Thetis VVestcott, Adelaide Decker. The Soph.-l"resh. appointed Geraldine lkflullen,
lfdyth Kernan, Margaret l'abst, llzzrriet lfrost, julia l.oucks, lfleanor Lenz, Yera

The interesting game of captain-hall is still arousing a great deal of enthusiasm.

Not to be outdone by the devotees of basketball, the captain-ball classes had a
picnic April 27. Alice Connors was in charge of the arrangement Committee, which
consisted of Katherine Bostwick, lkiildred Elmer, lVIarion Hoffman and Edith Root,
lt seems too bad that we aren't all members of a captain-ball team, when we hear of
things like that.
This year, instead of following the regular schedule of exercise. the recreation
classes ran off the state physical ability tests.
Nluch to the regret of Nliss lfitts and Nliss Osborne, it was necessary to call off
the inter-class meet, as arranged. This was a great disappointment to the girls, who
had been looking forward to the event, and judging from the number of boys who
attended our meet last year, they, too, regret the omission of the meet this year.
A number of our girls competed in the essay contest on 'lAth1etics." The pur-
pose of this contest was not only to promote interest in athletics. but also to make
clear to the girls what a splendid aid toward character formation athletics are. The
two subjects were H Value of Athletics for Girls " and " Reaction of Good Sports-
manship Upon Business and Home Life." The best composition on each subject
was chosen, and read by the authors at a special assembly of the girls held in the
auditorium. at which time several prominent members of the stdte physical education
department addressed the girls.
