LITERARY SECTION '
THE SONG OF THE KITE
I soarg I ride upon the windy and when it falls I sway and dip grace-
fully. 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.

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
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.

" 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
Slowly without a sound of horn or voice a funeral procession wound
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

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

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
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.

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
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-
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.

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
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 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!"

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 rustler he was by perfeshun,
Till one of his pals spilled his dope,
An' dad paid his fine, rom the branch of a pine
At the end of a hundred foot rope. 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.
They got me fer stopping the mail coach g
Yes, jest once too often fer me.
But dad an' his dad when they see will be glad
That-I swung from the ol' family tree.
MOSTON HATHAWAY, '24
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

Although the skies are gray and drear,
And north winds shrilly sing,

And hear him cry, " Cheer up, old top,

MYSELF AND ME
I'm the best friend I ever had,
I like to be with meg
I like to tell myself
I often sit and ask me
If I shouldn't
Or if I should,
And I find that my advice to me
Is always pretty good.
I never got acquainted
VVith myself till here of late,
And I find myself a bully chum,
And I treat me simply great.
I walk with me, I talk with me
And I show me right and wrong,
I never knew how well myself
And me could get along.
I've made a study of myself
And compared me with the lot,
I finally concluded
I'm the best friend I've got.

March 1 was celebrated Kas everyone noticedj by the Senior girls as

seemed to be enjoyed by all.

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

" 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.

will be held. With such an aggregation as " Dutch " Empie and " Art "

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.

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.

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
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.

with Alma Haack, George Gildersleeve, Adaline Gertskin, and Morris

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.

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-
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.
