I tug almost angrily upon my string, for that winged fowl is going even farther than I. If the boy who stands there far below, on the green hillside, sur- rounded by his playmatesg if the boy who holds my string, who stands be- tween me and my freedom, would only loose his hold, I would follow that scudding cloud across the turquoise vault to the portals of heaven, and I might kiss the sky. But he will do nothing of the sort. I tell you, I am not small in the eyes of man. XYas it not a kin of mine that helped to draw from the sky that elusive white fire, electricity, the friend of man? VVhy, even now the children watch my graceful spirals with wide, appreciative eyes. They like to see my expression change, perhaps. You see, I am a two- faced kite. One of the faces is a laugh, the other a frown, and as I twirl about in the air, they can see me looking down at them. But hark! The clanging of the dinner-bell comes across the fields to us. The boy is goingg and I must go too-and wait behind the cellar door. LUCY HAGER, '26 THE MONK'S REWARD In his little cell Father Dominic was busily at work putting the finish- ing touch on a small ivory statuette of the Virgin. His hands, gnarled and drawn with blue veins running in criss-cross ridges, moved with a skill THE GARNET AND GRAY 7 which age had not perceptibly diminished, while he carved, softly murmuring his prayers. As the light streaming through the square aperture near the ceiling grew dim the old monk increased his speed, but his eyes were helpless in the disappearing twilight and with a sigh he decided that the completion of the statue must be left for the morrow. As he contemplated the figure held in his outstretched palm his head began to nod and in the midst of his study drooped forward on his chest and he aroused himself with a start when he realized that sleep had nearly overtaken him before the completion of his daily tasks. Since the death of Brother Francis, it had been his duty to light the tapers in the chapel as he passed on his way to the evening meal served in the great hall of the monastery, for this was one of the lighter tasks assigned to the oldest mem- bers of the order. With a last regretful glance he placed the miniature of the Virgin on a low, broad shelf, and picking up the bundle of tapers he was about to leave the room, when he noticed that he had not put away his tools. Bend- ing over to pick up one of them he felt a sharp twinge of pain and sat down on his bench, thinking that it would pass away before he must begin his task. With his head in his hands he thought of the physical trials of an in- creasing age and the handicap of years. The tolling of a bell in the distance warned him of work yet to be per- formed, but a sense of comfort and a feeling of drowsiness had fallen over him. He assured himself that there was time enough and then uncon- sciously relaxed, and fell asleep. Faintly pealing chimes and a bird caroling sweetly, as a shining ray of light crept over the monk's kindly old face, brought back consciousness and in the vision of the aged priest appeared the saddest sight' oni eartih. In the far distance a group of monks with sorrowful mien were assembled in a chapel gathered about the bier of one of their brethren. As they intoned the funeral service a veil was drawn shutting out all earthly vision, and there burst upon Father Dominic all the joy of heaven. MARY HARRIS, '23 WHEN KNIGHTS WERE BOLD I The warm morning sun had hardly dispelled the grey mists of the low-lands, when the stolid peasants in the hamlet below the grey walls of Nordwick Castle heard the peremptory blast of a bugle-horn, followed by the clatter of chains as the great draw-bridge was lowered. These sounds were usually followed by the appearance either of a grim, war-like band of knights, clad in glinting armor, bound for some foray, or a merry hunt- ing party, with gay-colored, waving plumes and pennants, galloping by with a jingle of spurs and a clatter of quivers. But today, a strange sight greeted them. Slowly without a sound of horn or voice a funeral procession wound T 8 THE GARNET AND GRAY down the rocky road. All were on foot except the grizzled Lord Laufrane, who rode at the head, stern and unmoved even in his grief. Six men bore the carved oaken coffin, emblazoned with the arms of Laufrane, within which lay the fair-haired daughter of the Lord. The white drapery of the bier testified to the maiden's virginity, for she had died even as she was to become a bride. True, it was rumored her love had not been for the Nor- man knight her father had chosen, but for a young rnan Theobold, the Saxon, yet none dared whisper that she might have died of a broken heart. Now, murmured the peasants, she would be the bride of no earthly mortal, but would lie cold and alone, in the holy ground about the monastery, on the farther side of Eldric Wood. A few there were who felt for Theobold and wondered how he would bear his grief, but great would have been their amazement could they have seen him at that moment. Deep in the forest and hidden from the road by a thicket clump sat Theobold mounted on a fleet stallion, surrounded by a score of his henchmen. There seemed to be no concern in the attitude of the Saxon as he chatted with his companions. Suddenly the funeral procession rounded a bend in the road, and as it drew abreast the hidden knights, Theobold uttered a loud cry and spurred into the middle of the road, followed by his men who surrounded the pro- cession. The startled mourners offered no resistance as they were no match for the mounted men, and the bearers lowered the coffin awaiting the demands of their captors. Young Theobold sprang to the ground and tearing aside the pall, pried oii' the coffin lid with his battle axe. As the on- lookers gasped at this sacrilege, he leaned over the coffin and lifted Lord Laufrane's daughter to her feet. Holding her with one hand he lifted her eyelids with the other. A clear gaze, with perhaps the slightest trace of a smile met him from the blue eyes. Then with a wave of the hand at the raging Lord Laufrane, and at scornful glance at his former rival, young Theobold swung his sweetheart to the saddle and with his henchmen close at his back disappeared among the trees. MAX S. KAUFMAN, '23 - FAMOUS AMERICAN ANIMALS The horse are a very peculiar animal. He have four legs, one in each corner. He have a head that much resemble that of a gavel. He wear his hairs on one side of his neck. There are not much more to say about a horse these days because he are making himselves so scarce. The American gold fish terrier are a very extinguished looking dog. He wears wiskers. These dog are very extravagant, or expensive in other words. He are like to some of our antique politician, first, he always need a hair cut, two, he have a very even disposition-he are always mad. He are a good watch dogg i.e., he watch the tramp come in and take what he want, and then these dog watch him go out. The Australian Whimpus are becoming more common in these country THE GARNET AND GRAY 9 all time. He will soon be so common that he won't be preferred. These animal are very gallient, and resemble the Knights of the Round Tabile except that they has no steel overcoat. These animal are also very ill bread. They never ask for meat twice-they take it. The most popular dog in these part of the country are the Toy Poodle. These dog are like some members of the League of Nations, except that he has no plug hat or cane. These dog are very pretty, he wear a white fur overcoat, with cap to match it. His nose are generally dirty. These dogs are very useful. Ladies use them to have their pictures taken with, and children misuse them by pulling the fur off their coats. A It is said every dog has his day, but the cats still have the nights. GEORGE B. GILDERSLEEVE, '23 THE MAELSTROM OF FEAR The afternoon had just begun to lengthen when Red Gallager stopped in front of the old deserted farmhouse. It was just the place he wanted to stop overnight. They'll never get me, he chuckled. I'm too clever for 'em. He sat down on the dilapidated doorstep and drew some lunch from his pocket. Events had crowded in rather fast on Red for the last, few days. New York had become too hot to hold him, so he caught a freight train going west. He had jumped off at a small town and hadn't troubled him- self to ask its name. A saloon looked inviting so he entered and sat in on a card game. He was sure he saw that fellow cheat. He grabbed his money, shot, and was away before they realized what had happened. Red was sure he had killed himg he couldn't have missed at so short a distance. Red chuckled again at the clever way he had outwitted his pursuers. Ugh ! He drew back as a small garter snake slipped under the house. 'He shuddered. If there was anything Red Gallager hated, it was a snake. The sun had gone down behind a mass of inky clouds. It was growing dark rapidly and now a few drops of rain ,began to fall, so he opened the door and entered. The door opened on a good sized room, which smelled damp and musty. There was another room beyond and he looked in there, but it was so dark he couldn't see anything. He struck a match, but the room was empty. Returning to the first room, he stretched out on the hard floor, doubling up his coat for a pillow. He would get a good sleep and start out early the next day to increase by as much as possible the distance between him and the scene of his crime. But somehow, Red couldn't sleep 5 perhaps it was the steady patter of the rain, or the thunder that fol- lowed the lightning which split the blackness from time to timeg perhaps it was his conscience. A board squeaked. He started. The door blew shut with a bang. His heart rose in his throat. Red's nerves were on edge. He wished 10 THE GARNET AND GRAY the storm would stop. What was that rustling? What was that which brushed by his leg? It was a snake! He wanted to run, but his legs refused to respond. He wanted to scream, but the sound stuck in his throat. Then he remembered that it would not strike him unless he moved. It brushed by his leg again. Fear conquered self-control and he kicked at the unseen. He struck something. It struck back. There was a hiss, something caught his leg, and he could feel the prick of sharp fangs. He could not move, but lay as if paralyzed. A cold perspiration broke out on his forehead. He seemed to feel the poison stealing through his veins. Then suddenly he relaxed and lay motion- less, his mouth open, his eyes glassy. He was dead. A sudden flash of lightning revealed a cat, crouching over a mouse, glaring at the person who had tried to take away her prey. EARLE WHITBECK, '23 AUNT MARION'S GIFT It was near Easter and Aunt Marion had sent Betty several pairs of gloves. Accompanying the gloves were the check from Martins and a note saying that, if the gloves were not the right size, they could be exchanged at Martins. The gloves were size seven-and Betty wore six. Although Betty had persistently avoided Martins department store, it was necessary for her to go there now. After changing the gloves, Betty went to her and Bob's old meeting place. She seated herself in a corner. Not very far away stood a very tall, good-looking young man. ' Who is he waiting for now ? she mused. I think I'll wait and see who it is. ' As soon as Bob saw her he said to himself, I see Betty is waiting for someone else now. I'll wait and find find out who it is. Fifteen minutes passed slowly, thirty minutes, then one hour, still no one came. The store emptied until Bob and Betty alone remained. Still they sat there. At last Betty perceived that they were the only ones in the store. She arose, and lifting her head high in the air, passed Bob. .A floor-walker kindly suggested to Bob that it was time to leave. Although they went in opposite directions, they met at the malin entrance. As this door was locked, they were directed to the employer's exit. ' Outside of the store Bob said to Betty, Can I do anything for you? Your-your friend seems to be delayed. What about your friend, snapped Betty, you've been waiting ages. Why, I've been waiting to see whom you intended to meet. stam- mered Bob. At this, Betty lost her hauteur and began to laugh. Why, Bob, she said, I waited to see your friend, too. THE GARNET AND GRAY 11 After being assured that she was the only girl Bob ever waited for, she decided to accept his invitation to dinner. After the wedding which Aunt Marion, of course, attended, Betty con- fessed how at first she was so provoked at having to change the gloves, but, after her reconciliation with Bob, how thankful she was. R'OSELLA DoDDs, '23 THE LOST LAMB Last autumn a much bewildered lamb was placed in the vast and ex- tensive meadow of the Albany High School. Having come from a small select field the lambkin felt as if it had been placed in a teeming small New York. Dear me, quoth the stranger, I don't know where nor how to go nor what to do. Often and more often the dear thing was sent to a dazzling lady in the room with the fence at the end of one of the long lanes. The superb one would glance kindly at the wooly head as if to say, You here again P and casually direct the miscreant to the proper room. ' And then when the room was reached there were so many eyes boring at oneg questioning eyes, scornful eyes, indifferent eyesj The poor victim would get all prickly heat under the nice wool, and wish with all its troubled heart it were away from all humans in a quiet green field with Howers and buterfiies. jerked from its dream, the stranger would be called to the desk and put through the paces. VVhat's your name? Where were you born? lYhere do you come from? VVhat are you taking? How old are you ? To each query shot at it, the poor lambie would stutter an answer, and to the last would blushingly whisper, Sixteen. After a while the scared feeling passed leaving only burning curiosity in its place. For some time our friend unwillingly went down the middle stairs and up the side ones, wondering why it was stared at, and realizing at times that one could not be fat and negotiate the Herculean task of slip- ping eel-like through the oncoming ranks. One sad day the innocent one openly flouted the law in passing a cop before rather than behind. Alas! Alas! the rude thing grabbed our lambkin and whirled it down the lane. False summons to the office once would have caused the lamb's tempera- ture to break any thermometer, but not any more. One day they called it from its many antics in the gym valley. After docilely slipping on a skirt to conceal the--er-uniform and tripping sweetly to 113, it was accused of not being in class and all sorts of things. An explanation proved some- one had juggled the lists, so pardon was given and the culprit went back to the playground. Many weeks have passed and the lamb is quite at home. The office seems deserted and the path to the office erased since the dear one's faltering feet have become confident and sure. Those who stared have turned out to be friends. The cops are really sweet and sometimes humanly obliging. The whole pasture is so nice and pleasant, with so much grass of knowledge, with kindly shepherds and jolly companions that the lamb's,content to stay there and chew, gossip and gambol till Time does them part. A. B. C. THE GARNET AND GRAY POETRY THE BARRED DooR The outlaw rattled his mother's door, When the silver moon was high, Oh, mother, undraw the iron bolts, For the sheriff's men are nigh! But silent remain the iron bolts, None down the staircase creep, For 'neath the oak, by the old, stone kirk, His mother lies asleep. Oh, weary and wounded, my mother am I, My faithful steed is lame, My useless quiver empty hangs, My good sword's broke in twain. No stir came to the outlaw's ear, But by the distant spring, He heard the panting of their steeds, And heard their bridles ring. They cut him down in his mother's door, They buried him unshriven, And through his breast into the clay, An oaken stake was driven. The outlaw rattles his mother's door When the silver moon is high, Oh, mother, undraw the iron bolts, For the sheriff's men are nigh! MAX S. KAUFLIAN, '23 --. ...i THE FAMILY TREE My dad was a famous two-gun man, I'm sure you remember his name, As Loose-Trigger Pete, he could shoot awful neat VVhen a piker nosed in on his game.

A THE GARNET AND GRAY 13 His father before him was clever In his little amature way, Cards was his style, an' he laid by a pile As a dealer in ol' Santa Fe. But he shuffled just once too often, They caught him one night with the goods, An' although he was hung, we are proud that he swung From the prettiest pine in the woods. An' so if I say, as I shouldn't, I come from a famous ol' line, So you'll understand, why this morning I stand At the foot of a wide-spreadin' pine.

MOSTON HATHAWAY, '24 SCARLET BLUES O Father! O Mother! My fearful card has come! My brain had weathered every test, the day, I thought was won. The time is near, their joy I hear, my parents loud imploring, Who long to see the nice high marks, the figures blue and soaring. But, oh! What! What! What! Oh the flaming sight I dread There on the card my markings lie, Fallen, low and red! O Father! O Mother! You'll smile to see my marks. Oh come! For you I labored thus, for you I cut my larks, For you I toiled and studied hard, the midnight candle burning, although for pleasure yearning. Look Father! Look Mother! These marks of sky-like blue. I open up the envelope, Behold a scarlet hue. At first they do not answer, their voices, mute and still. I know 'tis calm before the storm and through me runs a chillg And then the silence breaks, and I, tho' I like murder yell Am taken cross my father's knee and whaled, oh, sad to tell! Exult, oh world! and ring, oh bells! But I with mournful tread, After eating off the mantle shelf Am on my way to bed. CHARLES ROOT, '24 THE GARNET AND GRAY Betts- Pearle A HAPPY OMEN Although the skies are gray and drear, And north winds shrilly sing, The world's all right, for he is here, The Prophet of the Spring.

During the ensuing season we played the fastest and most prominent quintets in eastern New York. The score tally is a list of victories broken only by three defeats. Poughkeepsie became champion of Southern New York. We beat them both at home and away, making ours the favored team in the race for the cup. In the semi-finals at Union the Albany five displayed an excellent sys- tem of pass work, perfected by hard incessant drilling throughout the year. The beating Schenectady received was the most decisive ever given them by a high school team. The following evening we met Rensselaer for the fourth time, only to be defeated by the team who had taken the short end of three scores from us. Friday, March 23, the players will meet Plattsburgh in Northern New York. The season, as a unit, has been a success. We played 26 games with a total of 561 points for Albany, against 413 for opponents, and missed the championship of Eastern New York by but two points. HUBERT V.

H. S. have no class spirit for the support has been good. The captains, managers and teams have been chosen and are as fol- lows: A Seniors-Captain, Rena Baker, Manager, Dorcas Hager, Mary Harris, Margaret Huber, Ruth Lemmle, Cressida Crossman. juniors--Captain, Dorothy Rowland, Manager, Nettie Bruckerg Vivian Thompson, Anna Reilly, Esther Benson, Annette Benjamin. Sophoniores-Captain, Lina Gravesg M anager, Kathenine Winters g Gladys Harvey, Dorothy Dreslin, Betty Eaton, Grace Seaman, Edith Dubois. Freshmen-Captain, Alice Davis, Manager, Eunice Lodge 3 Minnie Burack, Naomi Decker, Elsie Carter, Marjorie Taylor. So far the following games have been played and the results speak for themselves: Feb. 23-Seniors vs. Sophomores, 2-7. Feb. 23-juniors vs. Freshmen, 29-2. March 2-Seniors vs. juniors, 10-13. March 2-Sophomores vs. Freshmen, 9-1. 1 March 8-Seniors vs. Freshmen, 6-3. March 8-juniors vs. Sophomores, 21-2. Keep up the good work, girls, for even if you can't all win the letters you have a chance for numerals if you play five halves. The regular gym work is in full swing now under Miss Osborne and Miss Ward. One can see us any day tripping lightly through the dancing, swinging Indian clubs vigorously, climbing over and around apparatus, rol- lowing out Walter Camp's exercises, or marching like a Parade of Wooden Soldiers through our tactics. March 1 was celebrated Kas everyone noticedj by the Senior girls as Baby Day. Appropriate instructions were given fin the gymnasium. classes and London Bridge and Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush seemed to be enjoyed by all. Practice for the State Basketball Test has begun. We have discovered muscles in our arms which were unknown before! Let us hope everyone will make the required number of feet. How hard some have been working at their physical training since the weights and measures have been taken for we realize those scales are correct. An examination of the teeth kept Albany's dentists busy for a while although the results of the observation were average. A chosen few of our Senior girls were asked to attend a North Eastern New York Physical Education Association convention not long ago and to participate in exposition work. It is worth mentioning that they were a credit to our old Albany High School.

' ' , , WINNING PHILOI555QLLXi TIJEBATING TEAM. i 1 COMPETING PmLoLo G1A DBBATINQ TEAM THE GARNET AND GRAY 19 SOCIETY NOTES PHILODOXIA Let the drums roll and the bugles blare For the mighty have fallen everywhere. Yes, haughty Logia has fallen from her self-erected pinnacle of fame and behold! Doxia has arisen and is clothed in a new light, the light of glory and honor. For the second consecutive year, Doixa has won the annual Boy's Day Debate. The subject was, Resolved: That Congress should take all measures necessary to suppress propaganda having for its purpose the over- throw of the United States government. The Doxia team which upheld the negative consisted of .Howard B. Noyes, Captain and third speaker, Vtlilliam Kernan second speaker, George Gildersleeve, first speaker, and Clarence Stott, alternate. These men, because of their forceful presentation, excellent arguments and general understanding of the subject, easily earned the unanimous decision of the judges. This debate evens up the series of exercises for each society has triumphed fourteen times. But a new light is on Doxia, she cannot be stopped. Her trained array of speakers will carry on and continue the vic- tories of these past two years. While Doxia regrets that she was unable to secure the individual speaker's prize, her hearty congratulations are extended to Raymond Haynes, the fortunate debater. Paul Reuss read the Secretary's Report and Milton B. Knox, Alpha Sigma Phi. These two fellows put over their wise cracks in such a manner that they were easily the stars of the evening. On March 3, the Boys' Day Dance was celebrated. Doxia is to be commended for her sons gave the occasion such excellent support that it proved a tremendous success. On Friday evening, March 23, the annual Doxia-Logia basketball game will be held. With such an aggregation as Dutch Empie and Art Bradley, forwards, Abe Decker, center, Ray Flood and Paul Davis, guards, Doxia expects to add another game to her already long string of victories. Under the following administration splendid results are expected: President, Milton B. Knox, Vice-President, Van Straub, Treasurer, Burage Stiles, Critic, George Butman, Recording Secretary, Paul Reuss, Corresponding Secretary, Lester T. Moston, Senior Marshal, Howard B. Noyes, junior Marshal, James McMartin, Senior Editor, Theodore Grahn, junior Editor, Wallace Strevell, Reporter, Fred Miller. As Caesar had his Brutus, as Charles the first had his Cromwell, so Logia has had her Doxia and is now vanquished. 20 THE GARNET AND GRAY PHILOLOGIA NOVEMBER '22-MARCH '23 OFFICERS President, Daniel Pabst, Vice-President, John Maher, Critic, Robert Lincoln, Recording Secretary, Chris. Stahler, Corresponding Secretary, Donald Pratt, Senior Editor, William VVentworth, Junior Editor, Spenser McCarty, Senior Marshal, Roy LeFevre, Junior Marshal, Joseph Kearney, Reporter, Hubert Miller. Daniel Pabst, the inimitable president, called forth all his efforts to combat the forces which operated against the progress of Philologia Literary Society. The executive committee carried out Mr. Pabst's ideas in a most efficient manner. The Fall Dance of the 'Logians featured among the social events of the season. The plans were successfully accomplished by the committee, Hubert V. Miller, ch., Philip Blume, john Maher, Robert Canfield, and Spenser McCarty. On March 2, our Debating Team met Doxia and produced an eloquently delivered discourse on the question of the propaganda evil and its relation to the United States Government. The team consisted of third speaker, Earl Whitbeck, second speaker, Raymond Haynes, first speaker, John Maher, alternate, Donald Pratt. The audience was entertained by' the quaint wit of W'illiam Wentworth's Treasurer's Report, and by Ralph Willstaedt's clever misappropriation of the Mother Tongue in the Logia Record. In the gymnasium the following evening the best of the winter dances was held. Mr Pabst closed his term by presiding at the annual Boys' Day Debate. His meetings will be remembered for the unfailing certainty of literary exer- cises and sure progress in literary paths. We have recently entered upon a new term under the leadership of Raymond N. Haynes. A series of successes is anticipated, not the least of which is the annual Doxia-Logia basketball game. HUBERT V. MILLER THETA SIGMA NOTES The present officers of Theta Sigma are: President, Dorcas Hager, Vice-President, Rena Baker, Critic, Marjorie Greenman, Recording Sec- retary, Edith Adams, Corresponding Secretary, Frances Buckley, Senior Editor, Cressida Crossman, Treasurer, Esther.Bookheim, First Junior Editor, Dorothy Havens, Second Junior Editor, Helen Hager, Assistant Corresponding Secretary, Clara Hagey, Marshal, Margaret Frantz, Re- porter, Elizabeth Willoughby. Since the installation of her new Senior Editor, Pat Crossman, Sigma has been enjoying many novel programs. Besides the usual quota- tions and readings, there has been a Pansaphian by Helen Hager, and THE GARNET AND GRAY 21 several short one-act plays. A pantomime Silent Church, School Days and The Pill-Doctor. A debate recently was held on a subject much discussed by the school authorities and students, Resolved: That the Albany High School should control and operate a cafeteria for the use of its students. The affirmative speakers were Mary Harris and Frances Haner. Those on the negative were Miriam Baker and Constance Bauman, the affirmative won. On account of the great difliculty in obtaining the auditorium for Sigma meetings, piano solos have had to be omitted. However, Roberta Green has been kind enough to favor the Sigma girls with several vocal solos, and so the programs have not been without music. The Inter-Society dance was held during the Christmas holidays, and despite the fact that many of the members were away, it was well attended. Sigma played Alpha in a basketball game and carried away the victory. The two girls' societies expect to contest again after the Easter vacation. - f THETA ALPHA ' Theta Alpha has once more displayed her good judgment and dis- criminative ability in the choice of the following officers for her second term: President, Rosella Lynch, Vice-President, Mildred Martin, Treasurer, Ruth Lemmleg Recording Secretary, Mildred McAllister, Corresponding Secretary, Henrietta Strengeg Senior Editor, Agnes Harbeck, lst Junior Editor, Julia Kampherg Critic, Katherine Kiesg 2nd Junior Editor, Anne Kelley, Assistant Corresponding Secretary, Alice Kahn, Marshal, Mildred Peterson. So far this season, Alpha has obtained beneficial results from her literary work. Members of the society have responded to roll-call with quotations from poets such as Shakespeare, Burns, Whittier, Wadsworth and Shelley, and interesting biographies of the poets quoted have been read as a part of the literary program. Debates o-n current topics, readings and sketches have also proved both entertaining and educational. At the game with Schenectady on jan. 26, Theta Alpha was present in body and spirit. Although our boys suffered defeat by the close score of 15-14, Alpha manifested a commendable support and enthusiasm. Feb. 9 dates one of the most successful events of the year-Alpha's annual dance. Lively decorations gave a pleasing effect to an otherwise grim gymnasium and the orchestra played an important part, at any rate, the committee in charge of the affair is due much credit for a tremendous success. ' In the exciting basketball game between Sigma and Alpha, our sister society was laureled. However, Alpha's team work in the game is equalized by a uniform desire in the society to balance accounts. Alpha is now looking forward to the continuation of her prosperity and, with the guidance of her competent president, she sees, as yet, no obstruction in the path to success. EVELYN MAGE12, Reporter. 22 THE GARNET AND GRAY THE FRENCH CLUB The French Club continues to ,hold bi-weekly meetings in la salle de classe 103. It has been the club's aim to make the meetings profitable as well as interesting. Plays, games and special musical numbers are very enter- taining but there's a deeper purpose than just this, we are assimilating knowledge that is very useful in supplementing our regular French course. Miss Anderson, of the French department. recently gave a lecture illustrated with lantern slides. The subject of the lecture was Old Castles of France. The views of France's old castles and cities were explained in Miss Anderson's engaging manner. ,The small individual assessments went a long way in purchasing the phonograph that the Club needs so much. The annual matinee, the French Club's big event and looked forward to by the whole school, will be held late in the spring. Even now, under the able direction of Prof. Davis, the actors are rehearsing their parts and so we all look forward to a most entertaining matinee. DAVIS L. SHULTES, '23 BARBAROSSA LITERARY SOCIETY VV ith the opening of the school year, the members of the Barbarossa Literary Society resumed their activities with renewed vigor, and the re- sults of their hard work is already beginning to show. A series of excel- lent literary programs have been presented by the members, and they have returned to the old custom of an occasional musical entertainment, all of which have proven gratifying successes. Professor Frederick Mueller, head of the German Department, acts as Critic to the society, and it is mostly through his indefatigable efforts for its welfare that the society holds its present high place. The society started upon its good work while Mr. Stahler was presi- dent, and under the leadership of the present incumbent, Mr. William Fiedler, it is hoped that even better results will be obtained. The present list of officers include: President, VVilliam Fiedler, Vice-President, Paul Reussg Treasurer, Van Straub, Recording Secretary, Elizabeth Rosenfeld, Corresponding Secretary, Henry Reinhardt, Marshal, Marvin Smith, Editor, William Bauer, Reporter, Anna Mosall. THE SCIENCE CLUB The Science Club, under the successive leadership of Earl Whitbeck and Burage E. Stiles, has continued its work of developing interest in scientific demonstrations.

THE GARNET AND GRAY 23 Weekly meetings have been held with scientific demonstrations and readings by the members. In addition several business men have ad- dressed the organization. The present officers are: Burage E. Stiles, President, Donald I. Horn, Vice-President, Earl Whitbeck, Critic, Donald Pratt, Treasurer, George M. Snyder, Recording Secretary, Edwin Smith, Corresponding Secretary, David Kessler, Reporter, Manny Dinovo, Marshal. Prof. Byron O. Burgin, head of the Science Department acts as Super- vising Critic. The Science Club wishes to thank the members of the Science Depart- ment for their aid in making it a-success. DAVID KESSLER, '23 THE DRAMATIC CLUB The players of the class of 1923 of the Albany High School, who for the past four years have been producing delightful plays for the benefit of the public, got together on January 11, under the supervision of Prof. Allen T. Cook, head of the English Department, and Prof. john Howe, head of the elocution department, and organized what promises to become one of the cherished institutions of the High School. This dramatic club, known for the present as the Albany High School Players, aims to pro- duce plays of the better sort in a creditable manner. With this object in view, they hope to raise the standard of amateur dramatics. The organization began With a charter membership of one hundred, one half Seniors and one half Juniors and Sophomores. The only qualification for admission is a willingness to work. From time to time, as vacancies occur, new members will be elected from a waiting list, which is already growing rapidly, owing to the interest manifested in the movement by pupils of the upper classes. The meetings are held twice a month, on Thursday afternoons, in the auditorium. The programs con- sist of short talks on Dramatic Art and Stage Craft, dramatic readings and interpretations from the works of standard authors, together with the presentation of some modern one-act plays by members who are drawn by lot and coached by Mr. Howe, the director of the Players. Un February 1, the Players presented Two Crooks and a Lady, by Eugene Pillot, with the following cast: David Kessler, Bessie Farrel, Helen Rowland, Gladys Harvey, Stanley Reagan, and Van Straub-Critic, Ruth Coe. On February 15, they presented Sham, by Frank G. Tompkins, with Rosella Lynch, Hubert Miller, Raymond Haynes, and Robert Shillinglaw in the cast, and Harriet Parkhurst as critic. On March l, they presented What They Think, by Rachel Crothers, with Alma Haack, George Gildersleeve, Adaline Gertskin, and Morris Koffsky in the cast. Agnes Harbeck of the Senior Class gave a dramatic reading. 24 THE GARNET AND GRAY On the evening of March 9, the junior Public took place, on which occasion 6' The Trysting Place, a farce in one act, by Booth Tarkington, was given by Junior members of the Players. The cast was: Henry Gavit, George Butman, Stanley Reagan, Dan Pabst, Genevieve White, Mildred NVahrman, and Harriet Smith. On the evening of April 27, the Players will present a program of three one-act plays, the selection of which to be announced later. The proceeds will go toward the purchase of much needed properties for the stage ,and towards the founding of a library of plays and manuscripts for the use of the organization. This follows the plan of the Penn. State Col- lege Players, who, during the three years of their existence, have acquired a library of over one thousand different plays, which they lend to other schools. DAVID KESSLER, ,23 COMMERCE CLUB NOTES The Commerce Club, at a recent election chose the following officers: President, Alfred Yonkers, Vice-President, julia Kampfer, Recording Secretary, Katherine Metzger, Corresponding Secretary, Mildred B. Hil- ton, Treasurer, Milton Klein, Critic, Helen Mombergerg Senior Editor, Marion Cundall, Senior Marshal, Pauline Jones, Junior Marshal, Anna Reilly, Reporter, Albert Hogle. W'ith the above named officers the Club is sure to prosper more than ever before. Evidences of new interest and zeal are already dominant in the affairs of the Club. On two different occasions the Club visited the New York Telephone Building and the Albany Felt Company's Mills. Great interest is being taken in these visits as shown by the large number attending. And so just remember, that although we are not so very well known we are out for bigger things and are just waiting for an opportunity to assert ourselves. With this in mind we are planning a program of future activities which will do honor to the school as well as to the Club. ALBERT Hocus, '23 THE RIFLE CLUB During these last four years following the close of the World VVar, the sprfnging up of rifle clubs and teams has been truly phenomenal. This is, of course, a result of the all but universal interest in firearms, both be- fore and after our entry into the war, due to our nation's program of so- called preparedness. The fever struck old A. H. S. about this time last year, and a group of twelve enthusiasts put their heads together and promptly took steps to organize a riiie club here. We corresponded with the National Rifle As- sociation and received our application to the organization. This done, we received requisition blanks from the VVar Department for our issue of rifles, ammunition, targets, etc. These were filled out and returned in THTE GARNET AND GRAY 25 record time. Weeks passedg April, May and nlost of June slipped by. Then when it availed us nought, our various implements began to arrive. By September all was in readiness. Last spring, due to the courtesy of several local National Guard officers, five or six meetings were held on the rifie range at Rensselaer, where we used rifles and ammunition loaned to us by the guard. Since September, the club has held weekly practice on the range in the Tenth Regiment Armory on Washington Avenue. In fact, permission has been secured from Colonel Walsh to have the range available for an indefinite period. This spring we expect to betake ourselves to the outdoor range at Rensselaer where it is hoped some record shooting will be done. At the present time, this club has the permission of Dr. Pratt to exist under the name of The Albany High School Rifle Club, but we do not represent the school officially, as we are not connected with the Athletic Association. It is to be hoped that we will be recognized as a sport before the close of school in June, and that a rosy future is in store for this latest venture in the school's athletics. The officers of the club are as follows: President, Frank S. Dowlingg Vice-President, Alfred Ludlum, Secretary, George A. Mills, -lr.g and Mr. Stanley E. Heason, Executive Officer and Faculty Adviser. FRANK S. DOWLING ART CLUB The Albany High School Chapter of Arts, a recently organized society is progressing rapidly with a membership of sixteen. lt is a Chapter of the American Federation of Arts, Washington, D. C. The first meeting was held on February 13 and officers were elected and a constitution drawn up. The aim of this chapter is to increase the knowledge of art in the com- munity. Mr. Leon L. Winslow, Specialist in Art and Industrial Arts Educa- tion in New York State, gave an interesting talk on the line of work the society expects to follow. Miss Ella -I. Graham, Head of the Drawing Department will act in the capacity of advisor. The officers are President, Miss Marian Weeberg Secretary-Treasurer, Miss Frances Buckley, Reporter, Miss Catherine Kies. Can you imagine t Mr. Southerland with a moustache? Miss Winne terribly cross? Peggy Frost losing her nerve? A quiet senior class meeting? Donald Pratt unaccommodating? I One thousand A. H.

Dan was hopeful, though, and called at her home at least three times a week. When she was out, her little dog Tricks greeted him. Sometimes he called Yoo-Hoo and she came to the window, and asked him to come in. Then he told her all about his travels in the land Where the Bamboo Babies Grow and how he had sailed on Lovely Lucerne under the japanese Moon. She listened to his ramblings while she played the piano like a Kitten on the Keys. One evening he met her at a dance. Her escort, The Sneak, who believed in Say it While Dancing, was arrested and she was left all alone. NVhen the dance was over at Three O'Clock in the Morning she sighed, Gee, But I Hate to Go Home Alone, so Dan voluteered his services and went Stumbling home with her. As they stood by her door, he declared himself thus: Angel Child I VVish I Knew You Really Loved Me, for I'm All By Myself and I'm Homesick for my Carolina Home. But she answered, I'm Sorry, but Truly, I'm Just Wild About Harry. So Dan walked away saying, Why Should I Cry Over You? Dapper Dan was fickle, however, and soon through his friends, Mr Gallagher and Mr Shean began to correspond with Little Nelly Kelly who was living in Carolina after obtaining a divorce from Lovin' Sam, The Sheik. In one of his letters Dan wrote: Little Nelly Kelly I Love You Q I'll stay here in Georgia Till My Luck Comes Rolling Along and then Some Sunny Day I'll come after you. A few weeks later he met Georgette, who pleaded Wor1't You Come Back to Me. For the Sake of Auld Lang Syne 'cause I'm No- body's Baby and I'm awfully Blue. But Dan said, No, tomorrow I'm going to my Carolina Home after my Sweetheart, Georgette was at the station to see him off the next morning, and while the engflne said, Toot, Toot, Tootsie, Goo'bye, Dan called from the window Good- bye For Ever, I'll be in Carolina in the Morning.
