Two years at Columbia. 25 MASS HISHIRY On September 18, 1950, the Class of l954, the "Class with the Character" as we were later named, entered the gates of the Columbia School. With us that day were eight new girls, to take the place of Sally and Diana. Shall we ever forget initiations? Such creatures as Teddy Snow Crop Cameron and Gorgeous George Foxall appeared before the school as a preview of what to expect from us for the next four years. We became actresses that year with our origi- nal play, which we appropriately named "Just Plain Different." Never has Miss T. had such fun as when she taught Marty and Toni to be insane. They learned quickly!!! As Sophomores, in spite of losing three girls, we gained Nancy and Heather and managed to get our revenge on the Freshmen at initiation. We snared our dates for the Christmas Dance early that year. Just ask Barb Beale about the changes that can take place between October and December. May brought the crowning of the Seniors and our graceful performance,as danc- ers. Many of us wished we hadn't eaten so many strawberries, but the bad effects didn't last long enough to prevent us from becoming Juniors. Two more characters from Pittsford were added to the collection in our Junior year. With Mamzelle as our homeroom teacher we managed to get into more trouble and stay even longer on Fridays, especially Cindy. We established the "Constitution of Conservative Women" and most of us managed to abide by its stringent laws. Responsibilities hit us hard when March came, and with it the Fathers'-and-Daughters' Banquet. Then on top of that we became launched on our Social Welfare proiect: a fashion show, which was much work but very reward- ing. As tradition goes, we gave the Graduation Dance in honor of the Seniors, and--thanks to our mothers, who did all the work--we stayed out well into the wee hours of the morning. We ended our Junior year broke, but had faith in Barb Bowman who we knew would continue to hound us for dues. All sixteen of us came back from summer vacation "mature", "responsible", and "ready to settle down" to the difficult iobs ahead. Regardless of the fact that we poor "Geeses" had spent most of our Fridays staying for Mamzelle, we had requested, and she had consented Qwith loud groansl to have us for another year. And so once again we suffered through dark homeroom periods, clean closets, and straightening chairs f"five in a row"l and faithfully f?l said "Bonjour" every morning to our "pauvre petite Mother Goose." We invaded the U. of R. for more than one reason this year, College Boards being the most enjoyable one, of course. ' ln spite of all the fun we had been having, the work must have been too hard, since it was necessary for Sally and Julie to take rather prolonged vacations. However, the rest of us managed to keep going until Christmas without any maior mishaps. As a matter of fact, in order to make the work less tedious we produced some book reports which were apparently such excellent criticism that they were posted on the bulletin board. As a result, some of us have decided to take up writing as a career. The Christmas Dance was a great success with Margaret as its chairman. And after a wonderful vacation, duringwhich Shirley, Sue, Ann, and Elaine became temporarily engaged, we settled down once again. We now were looking forward with the greatest ioy to exams, College Boards, college acceptances, college weekends, and GRADUATION. 26 if if Q' Y. Ld, ,.., 1 , ... 1 I , . 5 V..

Class of '54 W SUN, SAND, AND SEA He was huddled against the pilings driven deep into the sand--conscious only of the cool, moisture-laden air blowing against him in the darkness and the mysterious rumble of the sea . He was alone . Why had he come here? Was itfor the sol- itude, the peace that comes to the world before the dawn? Was it to escape the things of the world and to turn to expression of the soul? Or was it an attempt to flee from haunting thoughts and troubles, to throw off the burdens that the day would bring? lt was probably the last, for the face rest- ing on the strong brown hands bore a look of despair and deiection unusual to one so young . There were furrows between his brows and lines of thought or worry wrinkled his forehead . What was his problem? A lover's scrap? A quarrel at home? Or was this something bigger, a sin or even a crime? Was he capable of crime? The young face was rather hard, and there was nothing about it to imply honesty. There was a look of pride and arrogance in his eyes, which were not shifty, but haughty, superior. The wind blew, the ocean rolled, and low in the East a faint glow could be seen. The glow spread. Fingers, now gold, now silver, snatched at the darkness. And then the sun burst out of the sea, chasing the blackness from every crannyin the beach and turning to gold the long-broken frag- ments of sea-shell nearly hidden in the sand. The day had come. He sat on the edge of the dunes, the noon- day sun beating down on his head and the ocean spread out before him . The beach was a fumbled mass of running, shouting and laughing people, and the water was filled with floats and young people, toys and small children . There was a squad of life- guards, each supervising the activitywith-one eye and appraising the bathing beauties with the other . But he sat alone. He wasn't touched or affected in any way by the mob as he sat on the warm white beach, leaning againsta twisted tree-trunk half-covered by the drifting, eddy- ing sand . He turned his head- and studied the grass- covered dunes behind and beside him . A glitter caught his eye and, to see what it was, he stood up . There, not twenty feet from him, was a sparkling, sequined purse lying on an empty blanket and partially hidden by dune-grass. He looked around, no one was watching, it would be easy. He glanced again, the sequins were beckoning to him. With slow deliberate steps he approached the blanket, trying to look casual. Another swift look about and he stopped . The purse was his. He hesitated a moment, thrust the purse into a capacious beachrobe pocket and turned his steps toward the center of town . The white, glittering sand eddied and shifted, covering the footprints with a thin film of tiny breeze-driven particles. High above the beach in a cracker-box house set on long stilt legs, a coastguard officer made a 'phone call. lt was all there, he had the information right beside him--name, age, height, weight, and beneath it, "Wanted for armed robbery, assault and battery, third offence." A new charge would be added soon: "petty theft." The whistles and sirens blew. Policemen poured onto the sand . The young man was not on the beach. The sand swirled and shifted. The tracks were gone, obliterated by nature . He emerged from the darkness of the marsh- grass into the pale moonlight and turned to- ward the sound of the sea. It seemed to call him and he hurried toward it. The waves shimmered in the moonlight, rising to a crest, crashing down, and then foaming and pounding as they hit the beach. The sounds made by the rushing water formed a pattern, but each was an individual, its path could be followed from beginning to end. He stood thus for some time, taking in the beauty and the mystery of it, the moonlight on the water and the mist blowing around him . And then he frowned. This was something he knew - the futility of being one person among the worId's millions or one waterdrop among the millions ofdrops in the ocean - rid- ing high on aswell, breaking intoindividuality as a bubble of foam, and then crashing, falling from the heights, to become lost as a part ofa rushing mob, being pushed and pounded against a wall only to be washed away and swept up again in the never-ending merry-go-round. He turned then, for he felt something be- hind him . It was a policeman. Now there was one on eitherside. A greatform in front of him blocked the ocean from sight. He turned and went with them, the song of the sea still ring- ing in his ears. Janet Adams POSSIBLE FUTURE Row on row Of books on the shelf Sulk in the dust Of memories.

Not like that, I, want them five in a row! Now get along, you will be late for assembly." Cynthia Thomson, '54 A DESCRIPTION AND A THOUGHT As the last note of Taps faded off among the silent trees I said a hastygoodnight, sleep- tight to my campers, grabbed my lantern and headed for the canoe dock. The night was bright and crisp, so beautiful that I felt like singing. Here and there the friendly light from swinging lanterns peeked through the trees. Whispers and suppressed giggles hung on the cold air as the counselors, free from the routine of the day, hurried off in search ofexcitement. Taking advantage of the beautiful evening , and knowing that it was to be one of our last here, Cornie, Nan, Sylvia and I decided that we should paddle around the lake . As I neared the canoe house I heard Sylvia's familiar giggle and knew that they were waiting for me. I entered, kicked off my shoes and lifted my share of the canoe . The black water noiselessly received the canoe and held itclose to the dock without a helping hand from us. Without a word we set off into the trail of the moon, each of us thinking her own peaceful thoughts . No sound ventured out of the darkness except the hushed gurgle of whirlpools when the paddles slid through the water. The majesty of the beauty almost choked me. The mist was iust beginning to rise and wispy fingers of it languorously reached up- ward to the full moon. One sliver of a cloud, a memory of the flaming sunset, was a back- drop for the moon. Above the mist still loomed the tall, straight pines with their silvered branches throwing long, wavering shadows across the mirror-still water. The picture was complete. And the rhythmic motion of my arms with the paddle lulled my mind to oblivion of all but the beauty at hand. When the dying strains of Taps from all the camps had died, laughter drifted out onto the lake, and voices out of the mist announced counselors from many camps who, free from their tasks, had sought the silent lake for en- joyment, as we had. The voices approaching were familiar and the words of their song floated through the mist to usgwe ioined as did other voices from canoes veiled by the mist: " . . .But you must have faith, And you must have hope, You must love and be kind and so- If you search, if you wait, You will find the place Where the four leaf clovers grow." When the words died away we dipped our paddles once again and set off for the end of the lake. In the distance we saw the candles from the Candlelight Service at Camp Norway carrying wishes out into the mist. The campers stood on the shore, each thinking, I was sure, of the gay summer days which had passed so swiftly, and of the candle seeking its way out into the darkness carrying a dream and a hope for next year. The campers then filed slowly to their cabins as we stared thoughtfully after them. Over the water we sang to them, hoping that they would hear and understand the words which meant so much to us: "Remember beside the campfire, Remember when you're away, Remember the friends you've made here, . . .Remember where 'ere you wander. . ." Yes, remember.. .remember and be glad that you've shared a bit of beauty in a world of excitement and nervous activity. From the diving float familiar words followed us as we paddled away. The Norway counselors had heard our song and had understood: "Should old acquaintance be forgot..." My paddle dipped, circled, and dipped again while I thought of this significant thread of understanding between strangers brought into acquiescence by the beauty and peace of the moment. Peggy Foxall, '54 CIRCLE The gong rang twelve. Darkness, The mystery of night, Blackness, A dreary, empty city to behold . It was night. The clock struck six. Now, light. Gone was the fear Of the night A peaceful, serene city to see, It was dawn . The clock chimed noon . Day, Clearness of step, People gay, A busy, happy city now. It was day. The gong rang twelve . Darkness, The mystery of night, Blackness, A dreary, empty city to behold. It was night. Nancy Lowenthal, '54 HOME Antony Passino, an elderly man with dart- ing eyes, stood on the dock, dressed in awell- fitted navy suit, gleaming maroon tie, and highly polished black shoes. But behind his lustrous facade dwelled a bewildered antici- pation . The docks were active with the usual bust- ling and busy-ness of the docking of the ocean liners from the United States. Shouts in several languages sped about among the thronged crowd which stood behind a heavy cord. Passino's eyes flashed hurriedly, as he looked around in confusion . With a small bag in one hand and his passport and papers clutched tightly in the other, he moved. It seemed as though a strong undercurrent rushed him to the custom's office . With hesitation in his voice he spoke in Italian to the efficient officers. The imposing movement of the dock was being left behind now. Taxi horns blasted in the narrow, cobbled streets, and dark-haired policemen blew their whistles furiously in an attempt to untangle the impatient traffic. Beyond this scene ofcommotion, the quiet, tired buildings of Genoa patiently, like the old retired fishermen, listened and observed new life . Time hurried by as Passino wandered among the streets and markets which were all that he had known forty-eight years ago Now that he was at the place which he had longed for so often, he realized that it was not as he had left it. Instead of the colorful vender, shouting IOCUHCI songs about his wares, he saw symmetrical buildingsaligned along the narrow walks, with glassy lettering spelling brand names of breakfast cereals, electric heating blankets, and radios. The music of the organ grinder had faded and in its place was the harsh blasting of car horns and radios. Across the street from the big church where flower stalls stood there was now a cluster ofcheap souvenir stands. He walked deiectedly, his head bent over. Even theflashing of the bold neon lights could not penetrate this mood. A drooping form, he walked up the old hillof the city to the house where he had been born. The street was changed, too. Where was the tree by the last bend in the road where Cousin Angelo had had the mishap with the basket of olives? Soon appeared a bullet-beaten structure, empty and neglected . Passino moved about the house, cherishing everysmall bitof fami l iarity. As evening drew her shade and the declining sun set a blanket of soft, rich iewels upon the Mediterranean, his thoughts began to unravel . He had awaited these moments for almost a half century, but now, what was it that he felt? Until this moment, Passino had thought of Italy as his home and had often dreamed of the ioy of returning. But the reality was different, not as he had imagined it would be. His thoughts turned back across the Atlantic. Down on the next level of the hill, a bell tolled twice, and soon voices from the old orphanage proclaimed with exaltation the glorious "Ave Maria", the same "Ave Maria" he had listened to in his small church in Amer- ica. As if an angel had blown a response to Passino, he felt theanswer in his heart. Amer- ica was his home too. Penny Critikos, '55 DISCOVERY The seventh house in the long row of tene- ments is hers. She is a small thin girl, red hair trying to curl around her delicate, rather peeked, face. Slumped on the front step, thoughts run through her mind. Resentful, sullen thoughts. How she hates this shabby street. On the broken cement sidewalk a man shuffles his way home. He is her next-door neighbor and she has never seen him look any- thing but tired and wan. A quick pity reaches her when she notices him, but it is quickly blotted out by scorn . lt isn't her fault that he leads the kind of life he does. lf he had tried hard enough, things would not have been as they are now. He turns wearily up the short dirt path leading to the door, by which some spring flowers are trying bravely to survive. The man stops and looks tenderlydown atthem. He stands there for a few minutes and then, as if on impulse, stoops down, all of a sudden no longer tired, and gathers two or three. Then on into the dingyinterior he goes, carrying the pitiful little bouquet as if itwere made ofgold. The small girl looks after him with a mix- ture of pity and scorn. But her eyes are drawn from him bytwo small boys a few houses down. They are fighting and then the smaller one runs crying to his home. The other boy stands watch- ing him for a moment and then runs after him, calling. The one who is crying stops and turns. The older child comes up to him, followed by a small brown mongrel pup. The girl watches with wonder as their differences are forgotten in their simple ioy over this dog. Can it be that the life here on the street, on which she has lived as long as she can remember, has its own joys and moments of happiness? No, she quickly puts this passing thought out of her mind . There is no joy in their dreary life. Across the street, at one of the most run- down houses of the entire street, a poor boy selling magazines pauses, and then rings the doorbell. A shabby woman comes to the door. She looks compassionately at the poor hungry- looking young boyand invites him in. In a few minutes he emerges, pocketing some change and wearing a grateful smile. It is getting dark and the lights are begin- ning to go on in the houses. From her seat on the still warm cement block, she can see into the houses clearly. The windows with the cracked panes reveal bare light bulbs which shed a ghastly and terrifyingly realistic light on the water-streaked wallpaper and empty bookcases. She tears her eyes away, stinging with tears ofself-pity, and thinks passionately that she will escape from here sometime and never come back. She will forget all these people. What did they ever do for her? Had they ever had any happiness, or brought hap- piness into anyone's life? She thinks again. No, her parents are kind, even though always tired. It is dark now and her father should be coming home from his tire- some iob selling magazines on the downtown street corners. She turns and searches the dark, narrow street for his figure. Five minutes pass. Ten. Then he comes into sight. How tired his face looks and yet how kind and understand- ing! She wonders if he hates the tenements and small grassless yards as much as she. He turns up the walk, bends down and kisses her on the forehead. She follows him into the house. A few minutes later, the family sits down for their supper. There are six children besides herself. She picks up her fork and then puts it down again. Between her parents has just passed a proud and tender and loving look . Theirdaugh- ter suddenly realizes of what they are proud, and strangely enough, she also is proud of her family and their life. As she turns and looks happily upon all of them, she picks up her fork. Jane Knight, '55 THE DOLL THAT SAVED THE DAY Nan Dennis was scratching in the dirt with a stick. N. D. Then the date - I775. There! That was how her sampler would look. With roses all around the border. "Nan, come here," called her mother. Nan ran into her house. Her mother continued, "I have had word thatyour father was captured by theRedcoats. He is in a campalmost a mile from here. His general has sent me a very im- portant note which is in code. He also gave me this doll. You see, its head screws off. It is hollow inside. Listen carefully. The note I will put inside . You must goto the camp where your father is being held . Secretly unscrew the top of the doll and slip him the note. He will be able to read- it. Do not let anyone see you do this, even the other prisoners . I have packed your lunch, for you must go now." Nan put on her sweater, got the doll and her lunch, and kissed her mother goodbye. She started down the road feeling very much afraid . All sorts of terrible possibilities could happen. She shuddered! It was getting hot. Nan took off her sweater. The-road was awfully hot and dusty. Nan decided to eat lunch. She was so thirsty! At three o'clock she reached the camp . There were little tents among the trees. "Where are you going?" asked a man pok- ing his head out of a tent. "l'm going to see my father who is being held here," she answered. "Where is the pris- oners' tent? The man showed her and she ran in . "Fa- ther, Father, when will you come home?" she asked as she burst into his arms. "I've started a sampler and you must see it! " "When the war is over, I will come home," he replied, and then added, "lf ever it is!" Nan secretlyunscrewed the head. Even her father hadn't noticed. She slipped her fingers down into the doll and brought out the paper. Then she screwed up the head. It worked! Nan then held her father's hand, putting the paper into it. After a while, Nan kissed her father good- bye and ran out. She ran skipping happily down the road with the empty doll. She had delivered the message and her mother had promised a cherry pie when she returned . Julie Harding Grade 7 WHICH TROPHY? Itwas Friday night, the night before the most importantevent in the Alaskan year that is, the event most important to the Alaskan boys. Once a year on the last Saturday in December a big dog race was held . Only boys who were between the ages of twelve and eighteen and who had owned and cared for their own dog teams for at least three months could participate in this race. The race this year was especiallyimportant to Rob Jackson, an American boy who had been living in Alaska for three years. When he was eleven, he had come to Alaska with his parents and his two younger sisters. The family had liked their new home so much that they had decided to settle down and remain there per- manently, much to Rob's delight. This year was the first year he would be eligible for the race, because until now he had not owned adog team of his own. But now he not only had his own team, but also a beautiful sled and harness, all given to him by his Alaskan friend, Tau. Two more dogs were gifts from his motherand father, and the fifth dog, his leader, he had rescued from a man who had been treating the dog cruelly. As soon as he awoke on the dayof the race, Rob ran to the window and looked out to see what the weather was like. It was a perfect day! The sun was outand there was not a cloud in the sky. The snow on the ground glistened like silver, and the smal I snow crystals twinkled like stars as the sunbeams danced across them. Rob glanced at his clock. It was seven-thirty. There were exactlythree hours until racetime, and he had much to accomplish before then. As soon as he finished eating his breakfast he ran out to feed his dogs, brush them until they shone like the winter sun, and polish his harness once more . Finally he was ready to harness his team. When he finished putting on the harn- esses, he fastened onto the leader a tri-colored ribbon. The colors were his colors for the race, red, white, and blue, the colors of the Amer- ican flag . Rob drove his dogs slowly to the place where the race was going to be held, and at a signal from the starter led them up to the gate at his position, which was number four, the second position away from the far edge. All the boys were there by now and the starter told them to get ready to begin . Rob wet his lips nervously and tightened his grip on the handles of the sled, for this was it. This was the moment he had looked forward to for months, the moment when his team could run in the race. Then suddenly the starter's gun rang out, and they were off! From the very beginning Rob's team and the team next to his were out in front. Number Five was slightly ahead of Rob when suddenly its lead dog stumbled in a rut on the track and fell, tipping the sled over . Horrified, Rob watched the whole team pile up, and saw the boy thrown into the middle of the track, in the way of the oncoming sleds. By the time the other racers saw the disaster it would be too late for them to stop. But if Rob should stop to rescue the boy, all chances of his winning the race would be lost. Even as he thought this, Rob was automatically slowing down his dogs, for he knew what he had to do. He stopped his team and ran back to remove the boy from the track just before the other three teams rounded the corner to finish the race. Rob knew he had made the right choice, but that didn't much help the sorrow he felt as he saw another boy receiving the trophy for winning the race. But then, suddenly, a voice boomed out over the loud speaker and said, "After some discussion, the judges have unani- mously decided to award a special trophyto Robert Jackson, in consideration for his for- feiting the race to save another participant." The man went on to say more, but his voice was drowned out in the cheering thatfollowed his announcement. As Rob heard this he knew that the trophy he had won would mean more to him than the other prize ever could have meant. .Ionatha Marsland, '57 IF I WERE A TREE If I were a tree On this cold winter day, I would shiver and shake And scream in my way, I would whistle so sharply That folks might say, "What a blizzardy, horrible Blustery day!" But I would always enioy, If I were a tree, The voices of children Ringing with glee, As they shake from my branches The light, fluffy snow, Which coats them all over With shimmering glow. Claire Hawkins, '57 "ALONE" "Alone! "roared the waves, as theywashed the lonely island in the middle of the sea, "Alone! " sang the wind on top of the hill, as it rusfled through the leaves of the desolate tree, "Alone!" whished the sand, as it blew around the only cactus alive on the hot desert day, "Alone! " thought the child, as he watched the careless crowds go by, "I have lostmyway." I amalone, you arealone, as a ship on a stormy sea, But God in his love reaches out to us. What a wonderful friend is He! Judy Fisher, '57 SOFT FLAME CStorm at Sunset! Clouds brilliant and strong, Soft with firmness, Dark as embers and outlined with red. Sky not still, but loud as pain, Shaking the earth with its depth. lt is cold with emotion and movement. Still, it is soft, warm as time-forgotten lands that breathe heavy for rediscovery. Sudden lights make the world waken as in morning. But it is not morning . lt is an unusual night, with its deep blues and vivid reds . Now there is a greatnoise as if massive timbers had lost their equilibrium . Then again silence, with the flash of morning. Minutes pass . Minutes of wonder and amazement. Then all is still except for color. The sky is broken . Great colors with feeling of depth turn softer and warmer . Soft as flame, Yes, Soft Flame Soft Flame . Karen Carlson, '56 THE MOUNTAINS High above us, all around us, Are the mountains. Shoved outof earth with bucklings and heavings, They tower above us. Centuries they stood thus. The great glacier came, Leaving melted ice in pools to blush with the setting sun . Rain pelted down their sides carving gullies, Now grown up with scarlet flowers. Full one hundred centuries, one hundred hundred, They stood . Suns came up over them, Gilding peaks. They are old now. They want to rest, Sinking into the earth that bore them, Crumbling, falling. Each winter huge chunks fall into yawning chasms, Rattling and banging. The mountains are tired . Madeleine deGogorza, '56 HALLOWEEN Ghosts come out! Goblins shout! Witches fly! Owls cry. Jack-o'-Lanterns lighted, Children all excited-- Such a night you've never seen! It is " Halloween!" Carolyn Castle Grade 6 AUTUMN EVERYWHERE Autumn, autumn everywhere ln our hearts And in the air, In the smoke of burning Leaves, ln ripe red apples On the trees, In the fragrant grapes, ln the beauty of the trees, In the softness of the Breeze, In the fun and frolic Everywhere! Sally Hudson Grade 6 IAM WITH YOU She walked alone amidst the implacable multitude . They rushed by her like trains in the night, not offering a glance nor smile . Her young eyes searched the avenue, her feet bore her many miles. No friends about her, her heartwas in solitude. Shops were closing, leaving only picturesque windows lit. Mannequins with gowns and furs visioned a young girl's dream . Her deep brown eyes gazed at these luxuries fashioned by those accustomed to the expen- sive life. Her face became lifeless and pale, and thoughts of her existence iostled in constant strife. Remembering her past and foreseeing the future, she ran, stumbling, to the wharfs, to the pit of the sea, the end, the last whip. Her flight was from reality and the never-end- ing loneliness of everyday, Alone, afraid, desperate, without hope. A shaft of light pierced through her dark de- spair, reminding herof the Bible teachings of her childhood days. She turned from the forbidding sea and its angry waves, Remembering that Jesus said: "lf lam with you, who can be against you?" "Lo, Iam with you aIway." Martha Harris,'54 LIES " Darling -- Johnny --now iust tell your grandmother you're sorrythat you lied to her." "I did not Iie." "Now another lie - to your mommy and grandmother both!
