Last year the staff was able to publish only the one Senior issue. But that in itself wnas a splendid example of the high quality of former publica- tions. This year it has be-en decided to edit, in all, three issues: a Christmas and a Spring publication, climaxed by a tinal graduation number. The staff realizes that the success of these issues, in respect to both financial and literary contributions, depends in a large measure on the complete coordination of the student body. By this response the degree of the pupils' interest is estimated. The work of our predecessors has caused the standard of this paper to be elevated to an enviable plane among other scholastic publications. Since the opportunity to gain experience was limited last year, we shall, at all times, gladly receive instructive criti- cism, which will secure the maintenance of this undertaking, and at the same time be beneficial to the publications themselves. The success of these editions can be achieved only by combining a singleness of purpose with a unity of effort. Therefore let us combine our efforts for the advance- ment of our paper with material aid and with true school spirit. PAUL DAVIS, '23 THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS True Christmas spirit produces delightful and exhilarating effects on the individual of average circumstances and intelligence. VVho can remain despondent when confronted by its contagious merriment, and who is not 8 THE GARNET AND GRAY warmed by the radiance from its magnetic influence? The troubled are soothed, the weary invigorated, and the sorrowful cheered by it. The range and influence of the Christmas spirit is wider, and its power greater than that of any other holiday in the year. It penetrates to all classes of people, to localities in which the spirit of other holidays holds a place of no importance, and lends a delightfully festive atmosphere of good- will to the actions and motives of everyone who possesses ity so that the people with whom he is in contact are necessarily better for having asso- ciated with him. At last we are commencing probably the most enjoyable and the most anticipated season of the year, and we have concluded that the best motto for it is one that is commonplace but especially favored by our noble cheer leader: " Get some spirit into this, now! " CHARLOTTE LEONARD, '24 IS THERE A SANTA CLAUS? As soon as we were old enough to understand, our mothers told us about a kindly white whiskered old gentleman, who was very fat and wore a red fur-trimmed hat and suit. This fact often made us wonder how he could slide down the small opening of the chimney, as mother said he did, and H11 the stockings, which we had expectantly placed before the fire-place, from a magic sack, which he carried on his back. When we arrived at the advanced age of eight years, having been told by playmates that there was no Santa Claus, we decided to lie awake and find out the true facts for ourselves. This we did and soon discovered, with breaking hearts, our parents distributing presents and trimming the tree, and we decided we had solved the mystery of Santa Claus. Now we were sure there wasn't any Santa Claus and from that time on, we laughed in scorn at all reference to him. But do we remember what Santa Claus originally meant to us? He was kindness and generosity. For no reason whatever he would come around distributing gifts and happiness at Christmas time. Hundreds of years ago there was a true Santa Claus. Because he so admired the kindli- ness and generosity of Christ, Saint Nicholas did his 'best to imitate him and went about distributing his wealth a.mong the poor. After his death his goodness did not go for naught. People seeing the happiness derived from the gifts, decided to keep up the custom established by Saint Nicholas, and once a year on Christmas Day in almost all the homes in the world, gifts are given in his memory and in his name. So you see there is really a Santa Claus. .ADALINE GERTSKIN, '25 THE GARNET AND GRAY 9 SCHOOL EVENTS FOOTBALL 1922 We started the football season this year with a new coach whose methods were unknown to the players, about forty fellows who were built with fight in their hearts but otherwise unqualified, and only three gruelling battles from the cup. Mr. Clyde Russell looked us over and the light was on. The group worked hard at Ridgefield every afternoon, coach and men pulling together in a manner which was the envy of more than one high school coach in the State. We started the season by rolling up a Z0 to 6 score against Edison Drafting School, a big bunch of huskies from Schenectady. Nine games have been played since that day, a total that balanced in a 7 to 3 scale, with 208 points scored by the champions and 99 for opponents. The annual game with our arch-rival, the Albany Academy, was the only shutout of the season, the tally being 26 to O. The Alumni game was an occasion waited for and to be remembered by all who saw it. It was anybody's game throughout the first half, but lack of training began to tell and our boys stepped out in front. For more reasons than one that game will be remembered. Every time the lines crashed a few more reasons developed. The following Saturday we played in Gloversville. The circumstances were investigated by the A. A. U. officials, who decided not to count that score since the team Gloversville put on the field was not representative of the High School. This was certainly a crisis, it being conceded by the followers of the league that the winner of the Gloversville-Albany game would be champions. We played the game over at Union College and defeated them to the tune of '20 to 13 and drenched a confident bunch of rooters with gloom. In the interim between the two Gloversville games we beat Troy High at Troy on a rock-bottom field. This game was the first in which our men approached their characteristic form. No line charge was like ours. Albany had a brand of tackling all its own-and the coordination between backfield and line was commented upon by several college coaches. We gave the Union Frosh the toughest gridiron battle of their schedule, according to their Captain and Coach, holding them to a 13 to 6 win. The Troy Conference Academy defeated our lineup at Poultney, Vt. The trip was an experience worth having, but the team was in no condition to play the game they did after covering the eighty-five miles. NVe certainly showed that school what we're made of when in the third period the second squad made a track meet out of it and ploughed that bunch of ex-high-school stars up the field for a touch-down, and down again to lose the ball on the one yard line and then tackle the kicker behind his own goal line which made our 9 points to stand against 26. Our defeat of Gloversville at Alexander Field gave us the hard won 10 THE GARNET AND GRAY privilege to play Cambridge, the champions of the more northern corner of the State, and a team with a reputation. They probably knew little about the type of game we played and we knew less about them. In that game our team played football which would do honor to a college team. It would have been a shutout fAlbany, 455 if it hadn't been for a fumble which presented the opportunity for their single touch-down, they were given the point for the drop kick because Albany was off-side, making their tally 7 and us the champions of N. E. N. Y. We closed the season on the field at Chadwick by defeating Newburgh Free Academy, the champions of the Hudson Valley, 23 to 14. The team deserves all the praise we can possibly give them, and Folks, " We have a silver football, we have the cheers of a multitude and their handshakesg but we have more than thatg we have a group of fellows than whom you will find no better sportsmen, no truer friends nor honorable men this side of Kingdom Come." And we'll have to blame Coach Russell. HUBERT V. MILLER, '23 TREASURER'S REPORT Albany High School Athletic Association 1921-1922 REcE1P'rs Balance on hand, September 1, 1922 .,........... ..

In exercising this privilege, the Senior Class have selected the fol- lowing as representatives of that illustrious body: President, Hubert B. Millerg Vice-President, Dorcas A. Hager, Record- ing Secretary, Raymond Haynes, Corresponding Secretary, Rosella Lynchg Treasurer, Earl Whitbeckg Reporter, Albert C. I-Iogle. The amount of dues has been decided, and a committee is at work selecting the pins and rings. Great things in the line of dramatics is expected from the Senior Class at the annual Christmas Public which is being arranged by Professors Howe and Oliver. , We all agreed with our President when he said, "I want to make this one of he best Senior Classes ever graduated from the Albany High School." A. HOGLE ROOSEVELT DAY The Albany High School has taken a great step, in fact a long stride, in the direction of public recognition of American patriots, when it insti- tuted the observance of Roosevelt Day. Great credit should be given Mr. Cook, the library staff, and the several student committees for their assist- ance in making this day a success. In every English class throughout the school, programs, by Roosevelt, for Roosevelt and about Roosevelt were given. His creed was displayed in a conspicuous place in every room. In one class some pupils acted out an incident in his life. In others anecdotes were read, and in several classes Edith Wharton's beautiful poem " With the Tide " was read. No 2.7 THE GARNET AND GRAY 13 two programs were the same, thanks to the kind assistance of Miss Houghton and Miss Riley. l felt, and I'm surewe all felt, a keen delight in the variety of pro- grams offered. May the affectionate feeling, now so strong, toward Roose- velt never die, and may his day and the days of other men who made and maintained America, be remembered again and again by High School pupils. i HELEN TOMPKINS THETA SIGMA NOTES Theta Sigma has enjoyed a most successful term under the following officers: President, Marjorie Greenman, Vice-President, Harriet Frost, Critic, Dorcas Hager, Recording Secretary, SerenaMcNutt, Corresponding Secretary, Hilda Sarr, Senior Editor, Helen Tompkins, First Junior Edi- tor, Anne Adams, Second Junior Editor, Ruth Sutton, Assistant Corre- sponding Secretary, Miriam Baker, Marshal, Harriet Parkhurst. Interesting quotations, dissertations and similar literary work as well as sketches, have been the features of the programs arranged by the Senior Editor. Sigma's annual fall dance was held on Armistice Day with suitable decorations. It was held in the corridors and the music was furnished by Miss Hart's orchestra. VVhen the championship football game with Cambridge was played at Union College, Sigma lent generous support and enthusiasm. The greatest triumph of the term was the management of the Colgate Glee Club Concert. This was held in the High School auditorium under the auspices of Alpha and Sigma, was largely attended and a great success. This is the end of the term: Sigma hopes that the year will end as well as it has begun. EDITH ADAMs PHILOLOGIA To Robert L. Lincoln fell the task of leading 'Logia during the Fall term. " Bob " worked hard and succeeded admirably in keeping 'Logia on that high level where she has for so many years stood invincible, namely: the best Literary society in A. H. S. Honorary night, the banner literary event of the First term was one of the best in years. Harlowe H. Metzgar, critic, arranged the program which included a declamation by Donald C. Pratt, a reading by " Wee Bob " Hunter, humorous reading by Harlowe H. Metzgar, addresses by some of the Old Philologians, who attended in a body, and a debate, Resolved, That the proposed St. Lawrence Ship Canal would be beneficial to the United States. The negative, and winners, was composed of Captain and third 14 THE GARNET AND GRAY speaker, Raymond J. Haynes, second speaker, Richard J. McCarty, first speaker, Francis R. Canfield. The affirmative was arrayed: Captain and third speaker, John T. Maher, jr., second speaker, Earl R. Whitbeck and first speaker, Robert L. Lincoln. Captain Harold Stines' orchestra fur- nished the music. The officers during the first term were: President, Robert L. Lincoln, Vice-President, John T. Maher, Critic, Harlowe H. Metzgar, Recording Secretary, Raymond J. Haynes, Corresponding Secretary, Francis A. Hogan, Treasurer, Francis R. Canfield, Senior Editor, Edward Hutchins, Junior Editor, Kenneth Slocum, Senior Marshal, Spencer McCarty: junior Marshal, VVilliam VVade, and reporter, Donald C. Pratt. For the First time in years 'Logia looks for a basketball victory over 'Doxia. Among those playing on the first squad are the following 'Logiansz " Dick " Lewis, " Pete " Metzgar, " Pop " Gloeckner, Harold Hermance and George Payne. The Fall Dance was the biggest social success of the season. It went over with a bang. A dandy crowd was present and everyone had a good time, even the censors. 'Logia wishes to congratulate coach Clyde A. Russell and every member of the Albany High School Football squad which won the Eastern New York State championship by defeating Newburg 23-14 at Chadwick park on November 25. THE FRENCH CLUB The French Club started this year with a rush. It opened the season by electing officers and the following were chosen: President, Miss Dorcas Hager, Vice-President, Miss Evelyn Magee, Treasurer, Davis L. Shultes, Secretary, Michael Tepedino. The membership this year is very large and as more and more hear of the excellent programs arranged by the program committee, headed by Miss Constance Beauman, the attendance steadily increases. Plans are being made for the purchase of a new phonograph to be used in the meetings. At present, the club is looking forward with a great deal of expectancy to the Christmas entertainment. This is an annual affair and very popular. The plans this year are more elaborate than usual. Miss Ruth Devlin has charge of the Club's library. The library in- cludes many French books and magazines which all members of the club may borrow. This material is of inestimable value in acquainting our people with French customs and styles of literature. Recently, Dr. Cochrane gave an illustrated lecture about Paris to the members. All who are eligible are urged to join now and under the able leader- ship of our president we shall carry the club through to a most successful close. DAv1s L. SHULTEs, '23 THE GARNET AND GRAY 15 GIRLS' ATHLETICS The boys have shown their worth in bringing home the football trophy and placing it in the library, but wait! The girls haven't begun yet! The regular basketball practice will be carried on until Christmas vacation. The captains, managers and teams will soon be chosen for the real games between classes after the holidays. As usual, the Juniors have their eyes on the letters again. Are they going to get them? Come to the games and see for yourself. As for gym, girls, hard work is required of us to be a credit to that new floor. It used to be an athletic stunt itself for our instructor to com- mand our marching column over hills and around pitfalls in the old floor. All that is past now, but the freshmen donlt know what they missed. We girls have a newcomer to welcome in our Physical Education de- partment, Miss Ward. She has already proved her ability for in spite of the fact that Miss Gsburne was sent as a delegate to the convention at Syracuse, Miss Ward managed the classes alone for a few days, no easy task. Should there be a track meet later in the year, let's hope we can find a few record-breakers in our midst and that there will be many worthy of rewards and praise. ' RENA BAKER, '23 PHILODOXIA Doxia has started the school year with such a record of achievements that a most successful season has been predicted for her. Under the leader- ship of her former president, Howard B. Noyes, and the present incum- bent, George J. Butman, the society has lived up to her reputation of doing only the finest work. The weekly meetings have been marked with brilliant orations and livid debates which simply show that the organization is still upholding a high standing of literary work. In October the 53rd anniversary of the organization of the society was celebrated. The biggest event was Honorary Night held on Friday, December 1. The feature of the evening was a debate between Doxia and the Websterian Literary and Debating Society of the Troy High School. The subject was, " Resolved, That it would be to the best interests of the United States for the government to own and operate the coal minesf' The Doxia team, consisting of Howard B. Noyes, Captain and third speaker, William Ker- nan, second speaker, George Gildersleeve, first speaker and Clarence Stott, alternate, upheld the affirmative and because of their forceful presentation and excellent arguments won the debate. The annual Doxia dance was held on the following evening, Saturday, December 2, and proved a tremendous success. H 16 THE GARNET AND GRAY VVith such initiative Philodoxia expects to continue her excellent work to include a victory over 'Logia on Boys' Day. The present officers are: President, George Butman, Vice-President, Davis L. Shultes, Treasurer, George Gildersleeve, Recording Secretary, Van Straub, Corresponding Secretary, Marvin Smith, Senior Marshal, Burage Stiles, Junior Marshal, Lester L. Moston, Senior Editor, Ronald Steeves, Junior Editor, Clarence Stott, Reporter, James Hayes, Critic, Howard B. Noyes. THETA ALPHA NOTES The first term has been a very successful one for Theta Alpha. Under the able leadership of Rosella Lynch, Alpha has accomplished a great deal. XVe have studied the lives and works of such poets as Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth, Tennyson and Kipling. VVe also had several debates on cur- rent topics. The Alpha-Sigma spread was a great success and the good program was enjoyed by all. However, the greatest event of the season was the concert of the Colgate Musical Club presented jointly by Alpha and Sigma. Wie express our sincere appreciation for the hearty cooperation of the faculty, the various committees, the students and the alumni both of Col- gate and A. H. S. all of whom contributed greatly to the tremendous success of the occasion. We only hope that our next undertaking will be as successful The present officers of Alpha are: President, Rosella Lynch, Vice- President, Ruth Lemmle, Critic, Mildred Martin, Corresponding Secre- tary, Edith Davis, Recording Secretary, Mildred McAllister, Senior Editor, Ruth Devlin, Junior Editor, Edna Dewey, Second Junior Editor, Anna Riley, Treasurer, Nettie Brucker, Assistant Corresponding Secretary, Anne Lockwood, Marshal, Alice Donnelly, Reporter, Helen Dolan. COMMERCE CLUB NOTES The Commerce Club came into being through the loyal and faithful efforts of the Commercial Seniors of the class of '22, The small group of members who composed the Commerce Club at the beginning of the present school term were also faithful- and began to build it up, not only in numbers. but also in usefulness. XYell, to make a long story short, it is a growing organization with an unselfish motto of " service." A. HOGLE. M, ,AL .14 THE GARNET AND GRAY l7 -1 cj IF ' x X f gf' X 5 is A I f - " .git mtg A HAPPY DISAPPOINTMENT XVere you ever disappointed on Christmas? Did you ever run into your living room on Christmas morning expecting to find a pair of skates on shoes and a skating sweater but to your disappointment find a book with a long, long name that meant nothing to you? XYas it the aunt who always gave you just what you wanted? This happened to me and that's why I felt out of sorts. Here, after all my hoping, my aunt sent me a book. The instant I looked at the book I vowed I would not read or open it. Qn Christmas night my aunt came to visit my mother and see my gifts. I thanked her for the book but I think she noticed a tinge of disappointment in my tone. She asked me if I had received the things I wanted. 'When I told her that I was disappointed she looked rather surprised but said nothing. The remainder of the winter I used my old hockey skates and sweater. The skates were a constant trouble to me and the sweater was not far from the appearance of a rag. The winter wore away slowly and at last came spring. and then finally came summer. A friend who was spending his vacation with us succeeded in interesting me in reading. One day as we were looking over some of my books my friend chanced upon the one my aunt had given me. Upon reading the name, my friend who was somewhat older and had read a great deal said, " Shame on you! Here is the best book you own, and it looks to me as though it has never been opened. I don't believe you have read this, have you? " As he said this he opened the book. You can well imagine my astonishment, pleasure, and shame when he slipped out two ten dollar bills and a note written by my aunt. On the note was written " Merry Christmas from your aunt. The money is for the skates and sweaterf, The first thing I did was to get my hat and rush to my aunt's house and l . I 18 TI-IE GARNET AND GRAY apologize for what I had done. I also promised to read the book. She only smiled in a knowing way and said, "I mean to give you this set of books by giving you one every Christmas. I hope you will enjoy them." CHRIS STAHLER ON BEING SMALL Who is there better able to describe the sensations of a small person than one who is just merging from a rather abbreviated station in the world of longitudinal measurement to a higher one. The beauty of this work is that it is unbiased. In those days when I was smaller than I am now-yet, as old appear- ingg when I was called shrimp by even my best friends, when girls at dances asked, just to be sociable, whether my Dad was small, too, or if I expected to grow any moreg when my clothes were made to order and I wore shoes made for boys, I must admit that I envied a tall person, but now, as I out- grow that state, I miss many conveniences, known only to small persons. It was just last week that upon discovering a parade, I started, in an unconcerned manner, to push my way to the front of the crowd. Some- one roughly pushed me back and asked if I thought I was the only one who wanted to see the parade. A year ago, that same person would have helped me through the crowd. A small man is in no one's way. Did you ever stop to think how much more credit you give a small person than a bigger one for knowing something? And, oh! how much more lenient were the teachers when I was a " shrimp." They seem to think a big person has more time to himself than a small one. There is another advantage to being small that I blush to speak of, and yet, because of its very importance, I must. It has to do with beds and bed covers. They seem all to be made for small people. Well do I remember the warmth and comfort that were mine on mornings gone by. Now, in the summer, mosquitos, and, in the winter, jack Frost, play havoc with my nether extremities which, despite all efforts on my part, succeed in keeping themselves as devoid of covering as a band-player's head is of hair. You may think, then, that a small person is perfectly satisfied with his lot, but such is not the case. They think not of what they have, but of what they have not. And so it is the world over. Since the time of Adam, the small have wanted to be big, the big to be small, and those of medium size larger or smaller. Even I, who have always desired to be tall, sit down, on the eve of my wish's fulfillment, to write, not of the good things to come, but of those left behind. Isn't there a trite old saying that says " Such is life"? Davis L. SHULTES, '23 . THE GARNET AND GRAY 19 THE CHRISTMAS GIFT lt was the evening before Christmas when Mrs. Dickson stepped from her limousine, in front of a large apartment store on Fifth Avenue. She seemed not to notice the happy people about her. As she passed the toy window, she hesitated, and something like a sob seemed to come from her. In front of the window a small girl of about nine years, stood gazing at the beautiful dolls. She was dressed very poorly. Her hands wereyblue from cold, but she was so engaged looking at the dolls, that she did not mind it. Frequently her eyes rested on a coin she held carefully in her hand. Mrs. Dickson passed the child and walked into the store. mer shopping done Mrs. Dickson was about to leave the store, when a group of people seemed to attract her attention. As she neared, she found that the people were gathered about a small girl and the store detective. She recognized having seen the girl before. The child frightened, and almost in tears was clutching a necktie in her hand. "NVhere did you get that tie?" asked the detective. "I bought it for my sick brother for a Christmas present," was the answer. A' No, you didn'tg you took it." " N-o, I didn'tg I bought it with my fifty cents." " This tie cost no fifty cents, therefore that is a proof you took it." They were about to take the child away, when Mrs. Dickson stepped forth. " Stop, you beast!" she said. "I saw this girl enter the store with a fifty cent piece in her hand. I should think that you know the prices of articles," she said, pointing to a sign which read, n Closing Christmas Bargains Neckties SOC. each. The detective was very much surprised. The necktie was quickly handed back to the child and the people began to clear away. Vtfhat is your name?" asked Mrs. Dickson. " Oh, Grace Stark," replied the child. " What are you doing here all alone? Where is your mother? " " Oh, my mo-ther, she-she is in heaven with my father." L' XVhere is this brother I heard you speak about?" " He is home sick. He could not go to work and he lost his job. And he says that he don't think there is going to be much of a Christmas for us. But I saved my money and I bought this necktie for him." " XVhere do you live? " "I live on -1 Street." L' May I take you home? Wotild you like to show me where you live? " "Oh yes, ma'am, thank you." ' They both entered the car and were soon on a dingy looking street. They stopped in front of a small house. Grace led the way up a pair of broken stairs and opened a door of a small room. as 20 THE GARNET AND GRAY "Won't you come in?" asked Grace. From another room a masculine voice called, " Is that the landlord? " " No, it is a visitor," replied Grace. The door from the other room opened and in walked a tall lad, about twenty. He seemed quite a delicate boy and the lines about his face were marks of pain and worry. He walked in with a slow, limping step. " Why-hello," he said. " How did you get up here, did the landlord send you up? " " No," said Mrs. Dickson, "he didn't. If you will listen I will tell you how I happen to be heref' She then told him about her meeting with his sister. john listened and soon something like pain marked his face. I-Ie looked at his sister, who was tidying up her room. " I know," he said, " how my sister wanted to make Christmas a happy day for me." " Johnf' said Mrs. Dickson, " may I please speak to you after she has gone to bed? There is something I want to say to you." Grace went to bed that night with a. happy feeling. After she was sound asleep Mrs. Dickson told john of her sorrow. " It was last New Year's eve when my little Grace passed away. She was just the age of Grace. I filled the stockings of an angel on the eve before Christmas last year, and I will H11 the stockings of another to-night," she said, pointing to the empty stockings of Grace. " You don't mean it," said John. Mrs. Dickson arose and said, "I will be back in a half hour." It seemed like hours but at last she came, carrying an evergreen tree, with different size packages. They were soon busy fixing up things. When all was finished Mrs. Dickson left, saying she would call to-morrow and take them to a Christmas dinner. ' The next morning Grace arose. When she opened the door she stood amazed, to see the wonderful sight. " Merry Christmas, Grace!" called a voice behind the tree, and her brother stepped forth. " Hurry," he said, " Mrs. Dickson is coming to take us to a Christmas dinner." 'Grace swallowed her breakfast and could not wait until she would be dressed. It was twelve o'clock and John and Grace were riding to Mrs. Dick- son's. Mrs. Dickson and her husband met them at the door. Grace and john took a great liking to Mr. Dickson. The dinner was the best that Grace ever tasted. Sometime after dinner john was called into the drawing room, while Grace was playing with her new friends. "john," said Mr. Dickson, " last night my wife had told you about our sorrows. The presence of your sister in the house makes us more happy. If you took your sister away, we will go back to the sorrows of the past. THE GARNET AND GRAY 21 Therefore I would like to adopt your sister as our own daughter. There is a job open for you at the ofhce. You could make this house your home." John could not believe his ears, but with a nod of his head, Mr. Dick- son understood. That evening Grace was told the happy news. At first she could not utter a sound, but then she ran to Mrs. Dickson and called, " Mother! " She held her child closely to her bosom. Her own, all hers. That night when Grace said her prayers she thanked God for everything he did. . "And especially," she said, " my Christmas present from You, my new motherf' . ANNA SCHER A BEDTIME STORY Once upon a time, children dear, there was a school who almost always had championship teams in football, basketball, track and baseball. In fact, the school was too good to be true and so, children dear, the inevitable flaw was found. The team's Moral Support were everywhere but at the games and when they did come around to cheer, it sounded like a solo rendered by the cheer leader. Not even the cheer leader's white trousers that he borrowed from dad would make them cheer. They could beat the Sphinx to a fare-ye-well. And one day they were brought into chapel and fearfully scolded for the loss of their vocal chords. They then tried to make a come-back. Even then, the cheer leader's soprano was heard above the other 749 voices. Some of them looked like fish out of their H2O. Most of the girls and some of the boys seemed to have a bad case of lock- jaw. Some forgot the middle but tried to finish up strong. All things, children dear, must have a reason and therefore, the cheer leader who was slightly superstitious, went to a Crystal Gazer to find the reason for the death of the Moral Support. After telling his name to the Gazer who immediately guessed his dad's last name, he was told to keep his eyes peeled on the florists' silver ball. After looking at his image for a few minutes the cheer leader saw the answer to his puzzle. No, children dear, it wasn't his face that kept the moral support from cheering, there actually was a deeper reason. Not long afterward there was a consultation with the coach. Now, children dear, comes the best part. The gym was filled to capacity at the Big Game. The other team brought down the town to see them win. Most of the cheering came from the Other Town and made it sound like an amalgamation of the Navy and Marine bands with our Moral Support like a piccolo accompaniment. Then, children dear, the Other Town began to razz the Moral Support, the Team, the School, etc. Then the Best Team on Earth began to get cold feet. Yes, children dear, it certainly was strange, seeing as how they had been razzed before without losing their nerve.. The Moral Support kept getting madder and madder but they never let out a real organized 22 THE GARNET AND GRAY cheer. The final score seemed like the Other Town's census against our lonesome 2. That 2 was the only unavoidable accident at the game, The Moral Support never said a word but went home as soon as the whistle had blown. At the three following games with no-account schools the Best Team on Earth got in a winning score but the Moral Support never opened their mouths. In fact, they were never asked to, for the cheer leader seemed to have business elsewhere. Then the Fates decided to give the School another chance, and so, children dear, by being a runner-up the Team was scheduled to play the Other Town again. And when the Moral Support said their prayers that night they added I' Give us strength for that gamef, When the day arrived and the doors opened, the crowds began to till up the gym until all the seating and standing room was taken up. The Moral Support were there to a man. The strange part was that all who had been at the first slaughter were there. Outside of the yells and boos from the Other Town, all was quiet. Then the Other Town's team ran in. The Other Town gave them their best. It certainly looked as if the Team and the Moral Support were in for a good time. The Moral Sup- port, by the way, seemed to be looking for someone. They finally found him with dad's white trousers and a megaphone sitting between the Time- keepers and the Reporter. He was thrown out on the floor. When the Best Team on Earth ran in there was the lull in the storm. The cheer leader feverishly asked for the Regular. And so, children dear, a splendid comeback was staged that -was to live long in athletic history. When the plaster had stopped falling from the ceiling and the windows had ceased rattling, the game began. Whenever the Moral Support cheered, the Umpire and Referee stopped the game to look at the ceiling. Even the Other Town stopped to hear them cheer. The final results were some- thing like Rockefeller's income tax and VIS. The Other Team didn't get the income tax numbers either. VVhen the Other Town went home they looked as if they had seasickness. Now, children dear, there was a reason for all this. And that reason was what the cheer leader saw in the silver ball. He saw something at first that made him want to quit cold and throw up his job. What he thought he saw was a boy with a tag, " Socially Unrecognized " pinned on his jersey. A boy who thought he had enough popularity to lead the Moral Support into cheering. The cheer leader, you see, was a real fellow who knew in his heart, that they couldn't be so snobbish and so he stared harder into the Crystal Gazer's ball. The scene faded and he was looking at championship teams Hit by with foot- ball, basketball and track suits. He couldn't help recognize them as the School's Own. And he saw a Moral Support watching them win. But what he saw in the ball he had failed to see in reality. It wasn't that the Moral Support were snobbish or even asleep. No, sir. Although they didn't cheer they kept their eyes fondly lingering on the teams. You see, THE GARNET AND GRAY 23 children dear, they probably figured they didn't need to cheer, seeing that the teams were so good. When the cheer leader had the consultation with the coach, it resulted in the Team going on the floor with the most foolish instructions possible. VVhen the Team began losing and were razzed by the Other Town, the Moral Support finally awoke to the fact that they were falling down on their part of the job. The moral, children dear, is that people shouldn't wait to be hit on the head before letting the idea sink into the oatmeal. Louis H. BAER THE CRUISE OF 456-896 QA MODERN FABLED They are all bright and beautiful, Everyone is short and small, But the gaff they stand is Wonderful- For the great Ford made them all. t 456-896 had never broken a lawg 456-896 was innoccnt of all that she was accused of, and yet in the freakish manner in which she was dressed by her master, she felt guilty, she felt ashamed. This unhappy feeling came over her only when she was in the presence of the great knights of the road, when there was some part of her body that was in pain, some part of her nervous system out of order, and could not perform according to her master's wish. The real name of 456-896 was Lizzie and she was a member of the largest family in America. Yes, Lizzie was a Ford. It was a fine, clear day in September when 456-896 left Albany on a long journey. It was a novel journey. And Lizzie wore a traveling suit that was of the very latest, yes, later than the latest, for no one had yet seen the like in a traveling costume. The suit was made to order and designed by Lizzie's master. When she rolled out into the street on that eventful morning, She was proud. For her habit was indeed exclusive. Her body had been stripped to the channeled frame, and in, its place was built of Wood, a large platform surmounted by a tent over a skeleton frame to hold it rigidly in place. She looked like a prairie schooner of old, a miniature. The master and two friends were starting that day on a camping trip to Canada. The three musketeers drove her through the beautiful moun- tainous country of the North. Lizzie was invigorated by the wonderful air. It thrilled and tickled her in the carbureter. She was happy on this free-lance drive, through the country. And she danced with every rebound of her air-cushioned rubber, quiv- ered throughout her entire frame in her eagerness. 24 THE GARNET AND GRAY VViggled with the delight and happiness. A happier Ford could not have been found. She was happy and frolicsome as a young colt, much to the discomfort of the three musketeers. They traveled on, this unique quartet, and W'hen the shades of night began to fall, they sought cover through fear of being crushed under its accelerating weight. They slumbered that night, the three musketeers and Lizzie. Aye, Lizzie still slept when the trio were up and doing. They tried to awake her, they coaxed her, they' pushed her, they cranked her, but she slumbered on in peace. She would not even grunt. Ah, gentle sleep, sweet sleep! What a soother of tired nerves. Lizzie had exercised vigorously in the fresh air of yesterday and was tired. She determined to have her rest. At last she gasped, sputtered, and kicked like Maud. Another' crank! She jumped forward and fell back in exhaustion. She choked, gasped for breath, quivered in every nut and halked and began to shiver. It was indeed a cold morning. " Pt-sput-tick-bangg r-r-r-tick, sput, put, put, put. She chattered in the transmission, as the foot of the musketeer descended on low. She was awake and, As the musketeer let out his foot She responded with a jump, and was off in a clatter of valves. A powerful Stutz was scared, And gave her the road. Lizzie was imbued with a new spirit. So they traveled for many days, And so they slept many nights, And so they labored many mornings, until one bright morning they halted on the shores of the great, Stately St. Lawrence. Ferried across into the North land, over the border that knew no fortress. Lizzie was happy in this new adventure. She pranced along with the fire of a Morvitch, with the speed and spit of a De Palma. That day she was in Ottawa, and turning back east that evening she snorted through the streets of Montreal the next afternoon. 456-896 slept that night in a garage, the first time in a week, with a roof above her. That night was a miserable night for Lizzie. Although she was rated by the customs at one hundred dollars the next day found her feeling as though she was worth ninety-nine dollars and ninety-eight cents less. VVhen the master musketeer came the next morning to see her, she told him her pitiful story of the night. A haughty "Fierce-Sparrow," nickeled and polished, spick and span, began the impolite game, speaking to a Twin Six who was also visiting. " VVhere did this thing blow in from," he asked disdainfully. The Twin Six raised his rear wheel and scratched his fender thought- fully. "Ask the man who owns it." " It's all I can do to keep track of THE GARNET AND GRAY 25 all the makes without looking up the back numbers. Maybe it's the boiler from Robert Fulton's old Clermont. Lord knows." Lizzie quivered, her radiator was boiling over from her resentment, but she controlled herself, seeing that she was powerless. Then up spoke a small Ford ton truck, " If you knew how you looked when you first came out you wouldn't have so much to say. That 'kid' is all right. He's got to be, Henry designed it and Henry designed me and I'll wager we'll stand anything you'll stand any day. Lizzie wiggled front right fender in gratitude, for even this bit of consolation from her foreign cousin. There was a Lincoln in the far corner. " My friends, let us have malice toward none and charity for all. Lizzie, you must admit you can travel. She can be depended upon to get there. She works faithfully and well. Yes, we must give her credit." " Travel," said the "Fierce Sparrow " contemptuously, " why, I'd run all over her. I could do ninety per. I carry princes and swells, and I'd be twice around the world before that tin can could wiggle its fan belt. "VVell, I ain't given to blowing, as a rule," began the Buick, " but when better cars are built, Buick will build them. Yet, Liz over here isn't such a bad skate if you can bank the difference." " Lizzie doesn't need a horn. You can hear her a mile back. She's in my class only I don't make any noise about it," said Dodge, as he put in his two license plates. "Aw, she's only a bunch of ' papier mache ' and can't take a hill except tail end first. Bah l " scorned the Paige as she turned up her pointed nose. The master patted Lizzie on the hood and reassured her. He fed her some gas and gave her some condensed air. " That's all right, Liz. Don't mind them. We'll show 'em up to-day, eh, old girl?" And Lizzie did. She took some punishment that day. She worked as she never worked before, for her master, for in one day she spanned the distance between Montreal and Albany. She was a credit to her designer. Lizzie wasn't good looking but she had good sense, and lots of "pep." It was an accomplishment that would make her tormentors of the night before green with jealousy. Moral: Looks are often deceitful. The pulse tells more than the pedigree. BERTHA M. VVARSHAW SCHOOL DAYS The wind was humming a melancholy air, one frosty day last Decem- ber, when, " Up from the South at break of day," Sheridan NVilliams, 'A with a terrible rumble and grumble and roar, burst from his house like a shot from a cannon's mouth,"-and 8:15, twenty minutes away! It was so bitterly cold, that Williams lighted a match to warm his 26 THE GARNET AND GRAY hands, but much to his horror, the flame froze on the end of the match. At this time the wind was so strong, that it even blew telegraph poles inside out. Nevertheless he hurried on to the nearest corner. Upon arriving there, Sheridan had plenty of time to recite his Caesar lesson in French, before the one man car strolled along,-and 8:15, fifteen minutes away! Williams stepped briskly in the would-be-car, and proceeded to drop his fare in the Hoof. The conductor-motorman rendered a very sour-castie look, when Sheridan requested the former to " ouvrez la porte," our hero's coat being caught. Upon reaching a seat near the middle of the car, Sheri- dan undertook the responsibility of holding it down, jointly, with a stout lady,-and 8:15, ten minutes away. Here the car stopped to take in the Old Lady's Home. This necessi- tated Williams's giving up his seat to a young-old lady. Our hero, upon reaching the rear of the car, proceeded to hold up the beam, which sup- ported the ceiling of the car,-and 8:15, five minutes away! One block from school, Sheridan, gathering together his trusty Caesar book, attempted to break through the front line in the rear. There were. "People to the right of him, People to the left of him, People in front of him, Boldly he rode and, well," Into the face of the conductor, who dashed the door shut in his back. After leaving the car in the dust, he tore down the street, broke into the front door, ran through the locker rooms, raced up the end stairs, smashed in the door of room 324, and " Vllilliams, you're late ! " CDedicated to the over-worked children of the Albany High Schoolj GEORGE G1LDERsLEEvE, '23 CHRISTMAS EVE--A MESSAGE All evening he had trudged through the snow on his way to nowhere, moving only because it was warmer so. But now before the open doors of the great cathedral he paused at the strains of glorious music that stole out to him through the twilight. The little waif was starved, but not for want of food alone. The soul of this little one was one of the unaccountable mysteries which rise, to taunt one, from the swarming filth of the East Side. Perhaps the gods above. weary of a suitability of things, do this in jest, but if it be jest, 'tis indeed a cruel one. The soul of this prodigy of the slums found wings in music and here was music sublime and profuse. Fascinated, he crept nearer and nearer until he was nestled in the cushions of a seat in a dark corner. Soon the richly dressed, joyful throng came to worship. The church THE GARNET AND GRAY 27 was aglow with myriad candles, but their illumination spread not to the gloom of the distant corner where the child lay, lulled to sleep by the music. The services ended, the happy masses started homeward in anticipation of the joys of Christmas Day. The presence of the child remained yet unknown. Christmas morning the chimes of the cathedral pealed forth their glad tidings, and the crowds of fortune-favored folk came to acknowledge the new-born king. They found the child, beautiful, though bedraggled, and with the face of an angel. Still and cold he lay in startling paleness against the ruddy velvet of the cushions. Yet, in spite of his appearance of poverty and neglect, he wore on his upturned face a look of unutterable rapture and content. The sight of him brought to mind vividly the little Child of Bethlehem, and many, that day, after leaving the house of worship sought out the needy of the city, and strove to follow the message the child had imparted to them. And many a heart was made glad this day because of him. EDNA NELLEGAR, 323 GIRLS I HAVE KNOWN Winifred's a lithesome girl, Harriet is stout, Alma owns the cutest curl, Theresa knocks them out.

" The Crimson and VVhite " is brilliantly edited, though we would like to say in passing, " Don't work your editor too hard even if he for " she "J is clever! " You ought to make more out of your magazine cover. The splendid material within the magazine is worthy of a great deal more artistic effort put into a cover design. It would add greatly to the interest of the Senior Issue if it included photographs of the graduating class. " The Oracle " has introduced the good incentive of a prize award to THE GARNET AND GRAY 35 Seniors and Juniors for the best story to be used in their magazine. "A Christmas Story " has a very beautiful theme and good development. Your class and alumni notes, too, are so complete and well organized that they add a great deal to the magazine. More exchanges, more jokes and perhaps some poetry in the Literary Department are what you need. We are proud that " The Cue " is one of our nearest neighbors. It is quite worthy of its school. The Comments in " The Cupola " are well done. We congratulate you on your novel and excellent way of inviting direct, written criticism. Your cuts are fine and, we rejoice to notice, are not all the work of one person. " The Item" gives one a very flattering impression on first glance because of the excellent work of its art department. Good cuts will cover up a multitude of sins. However, on looking further we see that there are very few sins to mention. The " Hits " Department stands at the head of any of the joke sections which we have seen. The jokes whether original or not, are new and full of laughs. We looked forward with great eagerness to the arrival of the " Evan- stonian " again this year, and we were not disappointed! Your fall issue is splendid from cover to cover. We like the general form, large number of photographs, and the expertly drawn cuts. It is an allround good magazine. We may speak in general about the papers among our Exchanges in saying that they are alive and full of interest. There are many novel departments and clever joke columns such as "Hash" in the "Dubuque News," the " Fun Shop " in the " Gryphon " and " Wise and Otherwise " in the "Manualite." " The Copy Cat " of the " Manualite " is something new in the way of gentle criticism of little follies around school. ALUMNI Isabelle Wentworth, '11, married William J.
