Freshman Editor LouiSK Wilson l " l «• ' " r DITORIAL Hx " icniTORiAL, " SO Webster says, is " that pertaining to or written by an editor. " Now, since maidenly modesty prohibits indulgence in the first attack, we find by the process of elimination an editorial is merely " that " written by the editor. There is no hint as to what " that " should cover nor discuss, you notice. ' ell, perhaps it was this very indiiTerence which caused the present-day situation, for you know, surely, that the editorial now (especially in student publications) is almost completely ignored (especially by student readers). It is. therefore, with not one rosy illusion on the subject of our importance that we take pen in hand — inspired to do our duty. Ah, duty ! Unconsciously the keynote of these last few vyeeks in school is touched. A time has come for the seniors when there are moments of genuine thought and reflection. What ha e we gained — what ha e we gi en to our school days? And, then, what are we to gain — vyhat are ye to giye to the future days? Seldom do we let oursehes use that word " duty " (it sounds so unfash- ionable!). But now, in the midst of dressmakers ' appointments, class-play rehearsals, and vague plans for isits with those girls who live far away and are in such danger of slipping out of our li es — in the midst of all this bustle comes a feeling that it is our " duty " at this time to pledge oursehes in some way for this coming change in our lives. ' ell, it is our duty. It is our immediate duty to board the Twentieth Century Unlimited called Service and to tra el with the real people of today who arc trying to make the world just a little more liveable for everyone. Our oppor- tunities have been exceptional ; our aims and ideals should be exceptional, too. And so, dear readers (few, but faithful), our editorial " that " is a sincer , ' plea for a pledge to Service. [ I F i f t y -F i f t y I ' usT A MiNUi ' E, old fellow, " broke in Conway Thurston; " do you want me to prove to you that there are things to write about here at home .■ ' That one doesn ' t have to be an opium fiend to write about one? And that Paris and the Orient aren ' t the only places strange things happen? " " I didn ' t mean that, " burst out Tom West. " Of course strange things happen here in America, but in Paris or in the Orient one — " " Listen, Tommy, " interrupted Tliurston; " what do you want to bet me that from here to New York we don ' t come face to face with a story — a bully good one? " " Fifty dollars, " cried West, eagerly. " Righto, Tommy. " And the two men shook hands solemnly and started down the road toward the train. Thurston looked down at the boy by his side, an amused yet thoughtful look in his eyes. This son of his dearest friend, clever with his pen when the spirit moved him, had suddenly grown restless. He wanted to go away somewhere, to new places for new inspirations. At Thurston ' s suggestion they had ridden out to the country, the wdiile talking the whole thing over to this result — fifty dollars if they ran across the theme for a short story on the way back to New York. Thurston smiled to himself. He hoped Fate would be good to him. A sudden gust of wind sent a sheet of paper fluttering from the side to the center of the road a few feet in front of them. Thurston ' s eyes brightened. " That, " he said, " might be the missing sheet of a will or a page from the diary of the girl who lives in that picturesque farm down the road, ' ou know, the one who loved the summer boarder who promised to — " " It might be, " interrupted West, dryly, as he examined the paper. " But it happens to be a receipt for an incubator. Romantic, isn ' t it? " he added, ironicall} ' . as he crushed the paper in the dust beneath his heel. 181 -fe The rest of the w alk tu llu- station was in silence. Thurston looked hopefully about the platform when they arri ed. Railroad stations were generally interesting places. Howe ' er, there was no one but a girl, most uninspiringh- rouged and powdered. When they boarded the train and entered the car Thurston looked about e.xpectantly and was satisfied. There was only one occupant in the train, but that was enough. .She was young and good to look at. The deep mourning outfit which she wore was strangely out of [ilace with her .f outh and fairness. " Prett_v young and de ilish good-looking for a widow, " whisiiered Thurston as he selected the seat behind her. " Xow, here might be the story of — " He got no further. From the other end of the car came a shrill, " Why, Mame, where ' d you blow from? Gee! and look at the duds! All dolled up for a funeral? " " Xaw, Liz, " drawled the fair widow; " the Missus ' takin ' ofif her mournin ' an ' — " Thurston turned disapjiointedly to West. But that young man was gone. He found him sitting dejectedly in the back of the car. " It ' s always that way, Conway, " ' est said. " Nothing ever as it seems, everything practical and commonplace. " Thurston didn ' t answer. His own faith was beginning to Ijc shaken. Maybe West was right. At last they arri ed in New York and were a part of the crowding mass of humanity at the Grand Central Station. A ' est turned to Thurston. " Well, old scout. " he said, " how about that fifty? " But Thurston was not listening. est followed the direction of his gaze. There on the edge of the crowd was a girl. .And such a girl ! In a great squirrel cape and dainty turlian, with exquisitely buckled slippers playing hide-and-seek beneath her velvet gown, she was the essence of 3 ' outh and style. As W ' est looked at her he had a strange feeling he would never forget her. Indeed, he wondered how anyone could. For she was the living symbol of romance, with a face that held a thousand dreams. Suddenly he was aware she had caught sight of him and was frantically waving to him. He turned ini|uiringly to Thurston, who said, " Go, Tommy, she ' s beckoning to you. " " But I don ' t know her, " cried West. " That ' s all right ; we ' re in search of a short story and remember how many times opportunity knocks. " Seeing that Thurston was in earnest and remembering the girl, est elbowed his way through the crowd to her. " Oh, Cousin Bill, " she cried impulsively, " I knew I would recognize vou at once — and you knew me, too, didn ' t you? Isn ' t it thrilling to think you ' ve come all the way from Hawaii and we ' ve never seen each other before and vet we recognized each other at once ? " " Yes, " lied Tommy, bravely. " Come, the car ' s over here. I ' ll take xou home at once. " " (luess Tommy owes me that tift_ - tlcjllars, " nuisud ' I ' hurston with a chuckle. " And I ' m wilhiig to bet another fifty he doesn ' t leave for the (Jrient, or Paris, either, " he added as he caught a glimjise of West disappearing into a limousine with the girl. Piut that young man was not so sure as Thurston, for inside the car his intoxication of excitement gave way a little, and he began to fear the consequences of the episode. He wondered, too, at the smoothness of the afifair. The girl asked no puzzling questions. In fact, she seemed to unconsciously tell him all about himself. For instance: " And Nancy, is she still your lady love? " she inquired. " No, " burst out Tommy truthfully. He had always hated the name Nancy, anyway. " Not Nancy? Then it ' s still Mabel? " " Wrong again, " was Tomm) ' ' s answer, for how could anyone love a Nancy or a Mabel with so fair a creature as this beside him. ' ' " No Nancy or Mabel — when then? " Her eyes were sparkling mischievously as she asked this question. " It ' s — it ' s — " Tommy paused. He had alwa) heliexed in love at first sight, l)ut somehow he had never imagined it to be like this. She leaned nearer to him. " Do tell me, " she begged. Tommy swallowed, ■hy was she wearing violets? Their tantalizingly elusive odor haunted him. " Not — not yet, " he managed to mumble and was not sure whether he was glad or sorry to find the car stopping. Outside the car there was a moment when he had the opportunity and wild desire to turn and run. The opportunity was gone in a second, but not the desire. In fact, the minute he stepped inside the house he knew he should have obeyed his impulse. Something was wrong; the air vibrated with a strange something which West had not fathomed. He was hoping he felt this because of the jjart he was playing. Hut no, the girl felt it, too; her color had heightened and her eyes were dancing as if she, too, knew something strange. AMun she spoke her words came breathless and expectant. As they entered the drawing-room West looked about i|uickly. He was sure he had heard someone moving about before they entered the room. And, though the room was apparently empty, he could not but feel the presence of others besides the girl and himself. He was certain someone had lieen there, for the chairs were in comfortable disarray, drawn in a group before the fire. Over the back of one chair was thrown a fur, on another a forgotten handkerchief. The girl seemed to sense this something, too, for she glanced searchingly about the room. I en after they were seated she seemed nervous and continued the conversation hesitatingly. " A — about your invention? " she continued. " My what? " gasped ' est. " Wh ' , (jur inxention, of course, ' clll finally obtained your patent, didn ' t vou : " " W ' h) ' — er — yes, but — er — let ' s not talk about that, " he said with pretended modesty, and was sure lie saw a smile lurking behind her words as she asked. " And your yacht? " " Sold, " he said shortly. " Sold it? Oh, what a shame ! What of all those splendid dogs and horses? " " Sold ' em, too, " said West, wishing Cousin Bill hadn ' t so many things to be accounted for. " But your last no el? Though you sold it, you surely can tell me about it. " His latest novel ! West Winked. Confound Cousin Bill! It was then in the silence that followed West heard someone behind him, and he did what he never would have done if his nerves were not like needle-points. He jumped from his chair and wheeled about. There was nothing behind him but a doorway covered with portieres. He turned apologetically to the girl. She. too, had risen and her face had gone deathly pale. She stood staring at the doorway in a panicky sort of way. ' est turned again and as he did so, the draft from the window moved the portieres backward, revealing six pairs of slippers, kid, satin, and suede, dainty feminine slippers holding six pairs of feet supporting slender ankles. It was more than West could stand. He stepped forward and drew the portieres aside. There was silence for a moment, then a silvery peal of laughter, and West turned to see the girl doubled up on the divan convulsed with laughter. Her outburst was echoed by six other shouts of merriment, and into the room tumbled six girls. est stared at them blankly as they chatted and laughed hysterically. All he could make of the chaos was, " Oh, it was wonderful, Mignon ! " or " How did you do it? " until he began to fear for his sanity. Finally the girl got up and came to him. " I truly owe you an explanation, " she said. " You see, we, " she indicted the other girls, " all belong to a class in short-story writing. Today one of the girls at our meeting announced her intention of going abroad for inspiration. Then the argument arose as to why she need go away for inspiration. Then the bet was made that from here to the station and back one of us could find a story — and — well — I — you — " " I fell, " finished ' est, laughingly. " Yes, " she agreed, " but it was an awfully good fall. You played your part splendidly. " " I suppose now I owe you an explanation, " said ' est, " but, " he glanced at the other girls, " if I m.a}- call some e ening I could explain my part in detail. May I? " " Yes, " granted Mignon, " tomorrow evening. " The next evening — oh, but what ' s the use. I ' m not going to bore you with the same old story of a side veranda, a June evening, a silver moon and the odor of damp roses, for — well it all happened in the usual way. But I will tell you that Thurston won his fift}- dollars and that two can hunt stories better than one. Row1 ' :na .Sticirly ' 21.

Ruth .McBkide ' 2U. 11- ' J Life ' s Loveliness HiFE has loveliness to sell, " and with surprise we find among her wares objects so familiar that we have never thought of them as beautiful. In a crisp, stiff, white calling-card, in a newly wa»shed window, in a deep- grained, spicy-smelling board — in these things there is beauty. There is magic, too, in glistening, foaming soapsuds, in the far-off sound of a train-whistle, and in the blossom of a weed, all glistening with dew. The woods after a rain, the fresh, warm earth, sweet-smelling green things, the drip-drop of rain off the leaves, the flutter of little bird wings drying themselves, and the brush of dew against your face from glancing boughs — in these things there is beautv enough to make your heart jump with the pure joy of being alive. An autumn day is filled with lo eliness. You can hear it in the drowsy humming of the big. yellow bee and hear it in the " crack " of grasshoppers as they jump. (3n the street the elms send a dotted, swaying pattern of shade and sunshine. In the gutters there are rustling, crackling heaps of leaves, all red, and brown, and golden. A little gust of wind sends one scudding across the walk. The picket fence casts long shadows sprawling on the grass and you can smell the pungent odor of burning autumn leaxes, and see the blue smoke curl up into the golden boughs abo ' e. H. zi:l Davis ' 20. OHE greatest beauty the world has is the beauty of nature, but the casual observer passes it by. He sees in green grass and meadow flowers only feed for careless cattle to trample and destroy ; not the beauty of slender grass-blades and delicately fragrant, many-hued blossoms. Tumbling streams and mighty ri ers are nothing more than water. The great oceans are expanses of needless water that offer an incon enience in reaching other countries ; not wide-flung masses of wonder and grandeur. Fields of wa ing yellow wheat merely mean grain for the hand of the reaper and food in plenty for the winter; not a moving mass of golden beauty. How many of us miss the beauty of a tiny verdant valley hemmed in by marching hills, or of a single majestic peak losing its snow) ' spire in a billowing cloud? You sa ' the desert is not beautiful, that it is a barren waste of sand, but have you ever been out on the desert at night when the full orange moon hangs high in the deep blue sky? The most sordid surroundings can be transformed into beauty if we will but search for it under the surface. hat we do not look for, we do not see. Eloise McCle. ' We ' 20.

Oh, you must have seen them in the VaW. for Smoke ! ' airies are liberated when russet-red lea ' es are burned on the altars of Autumn. Jovousl) ' they troup forth, flinging wide an incense that makes the tyes sparkle and the pulse quicken. Lazily, then, they rise to the cloudless turquoise skies to look down u]ion a world drawing off her garments for a long winter ' s rest. Please, Mr. Webster, add this to your book; .

" Sue and Archie sat together on the same side of the tea wagon on a be-cushioned divan — he in white flannels and she in pink ruffles. " But, Archie, I ' nc given vou so many already and when I gave you the last you promised you would not ask for another, although I knew you would. " " I know I promised. Sue, but it is such a temptation — and, " he sighed, " they are so sweet. I simply must have just one more. Couldn ' t you spare me one? I get so few. " He glanced affectionately at her. " Archie, vou should be willing to give up something for the good of ' la Patrie ' in these war times. All of us must make sacrifices. " " But a little thing like that won ' t hurt ' la Patrie ' at all and you know it. Sue; and besides there is absolutely no harm in it. " " This has gone on too long — it ' s getting boring.

He accepted the challenge and reached across the teacups and cookies, almost upsetting them. She dodged, but was not quick enough, and Archie caught her arm and held it tight while he circumnavigated the obstacle. As he approached she pulled backwards — straining at her tether. On he came and back she went to the beflowered parlor wall. There she took her stand and dealt blows at him with her free hand, clenched tight. He received them smilingly. " Won ' t you please give it to me willingly; or must I take it by force? " " Neither wav. " She glared at him and stamped her foot impatiently. " It is the last one I have to give and 1 am saving it to bestow on someone more deserving than you. " " But surel - I am as deserving as anyone else you know; and I ' ll love you even more than 1 do now if you will. The memory of this one will last forexer, " he cooed, getting dangerously near. " Well, ou selfish old thing — here it is then, " she cried angrily, opening her clenched hand and clapping it over his mouth. " Take it, and may it cause every tooth in vour head to drop out and ruin your most perfect appearance.

I ir. 1 h Books V PETER WESCOTT RIDES THE LION XX Fortitude Hugh Walpole has given us a magnificent study of human nature. His character, Peter Wescott, shows the secret of Success, the ke}- to Self-Respect, the path to Peace, and all in the fighting slogan, " ' Tis not life that matters, but the courage you bring to it. " Once the girl he loved showed to Peter Wescott the photograph of a man who rode upon a lion. This lion was a struggling brute of enormous size, and yet the man was his master by sheer force of energy and iron determination. Something of that man ' s face, the scars of struggle and long sufifering, brought to Peter a sense of overpowering awe — awe, and a vague unrest. Xot until many years later, when he had completed the full circle of his lift " , did the significance of that struggle as a symbol of his own existence present itself to him. And a great peace visited the soul of Peter, for then he knew that in his battle against Loss and Sorrow, bitter Disillusionment and humiliating Failure, he had won. And, lo, the face of the rider was his own ! " Blessed be Pain and every Torture of the Body " Blessed be Loss and the Failure of Friends and the Sacrifice of Love " Blessed be the Destruction of Possession and the Disappointment of Ambi- tion " Blessed be all Sorrows, Torments, Hardships, Endurances that demand Courage " Blessed be these things . . , . for of these things cometh the making of a Man. " THE LIGHT THAT DID NOT FAIL Once upon a time, a tiny spark fell from some glowing ember — fell and lighted alone upon the hard, cold earth. Aided by kindly breezes, this tiny spark became a small but brightly burning flame. Soon, however, strong air currents and forceful, gustv winds oxerpowered the little flame — it flickered, wa ered, and almost died out. But, coming to its rescue, a pair of loving hands protected and sheltered it, fanning it gently. And lo, the feeble flame increased in strength, burned more steadily, and blazed into brilliant fire, meeting cold winds in defiance, and glorying in its triumph ! In Jacob Stahl — . Man of the Real Today, J. E. Beresford has created a being oddly like unto that flickering flame — a weakly, wavering soul, handicapped by self-depreciation and lack of initiative, overcome by the strong wills of others, and unable to throw back his head and laugh in the face of defeat. Unfortunate influences have entered his life — Madeline, the glorious sinner; Lola, his first wife, a bit of clinging poisonous ivy, and the shallow hypocrite, Reverend Cecil Barker. However. Betty, the adorable, Betty, the human (also partner, general manager, cook, and drudge in a London boarding-house), by [1 ] dint of loving care and patience, is responsilile for his final triumph o er himself and hostile forces. The author has divided his stud} ' of temperament into three olumes. The first of these observations upon life, " The Early History of Jacob .Stahl, " tills one with enthusiasm; the second, " A Candidate for Truth, " arid, by the way, a remarkable bit of psychology, is inclined to leave rather a bad taste in one ' s mouth, while the third, " The Inxisible Event, " satisfies entirely. The trilogy is probably one of the finest that the school of realism has yet produced since Romaine Rolland ' s Jean Christophc. Concentrating upon the commonplace feelings and happenings of life, Mr. Beresford has given us human nature as it reallv is, without attempting to heroize his characters, nor to translate them into terms of his own temperament.

There was not a sound in answer to my ring- and I was about to leave when the door was opened by a soft- treading Hindu, who led me into a dark room, where at the farthest end sat Madame Zara, the world ' s most " renowned crystal-gazer, " whom I had come far to see. As I started to speak she held up her hand, and in a deep, resonant voice said, " Speak not, you have come to learn the fate of your old associates. " I sat down near her and she fixed her gaze on the bright ball before her. .She spoke slowly at first : " T see musical instruments .... a band .... yes, it is she. .Adrienne .... Adrienne Leonard, the leader of the famous .Art Hickman Orchestra. " I see weird figures on the board. .A teacher with tortoise-shell glasses. It is Gertrude Strain. " Miriam Martin seems to be a traxeling saleslady for the Black Jack Chewing-gum Company.

At it sits Phyllis Clark, editor of the New York Herald. " I see a French beauty parlor presided o er by the fair Hazel Davis. " Madame Zara moved restlessly, passed her hands over her eyes and then continued : " Napa .... a padded cell .... The door bursts open and out rushes a shrieking form. It is ... . Grace Hurt She has reached five million, counting Los Altos ' weeds on her fingers. " I see the flutter and glint of rainbow chiffon .... the orchestra stops with a crash.

It is Kathleen Grattan, who directs the hurrying throng. " I see an auto-show and a fair demonstrator with auburn curls. It is Tay Cutler who emerges from the sumptuous tonneau of a canary-colored .... Ford. " Cavorting across the meadow, I see a damsel flitting hither and thither, pawing the air with a net. It is Jane Stow .... the famous bugologist. " I see a herd of cattle slowly coming down the lane It is Felicia Meikle who drives them homeward. " Madame Zora raised her eyes from the globe and gazed intently into space and finally returned to the crystal : " Greenwich Village through a film of smoke I see Dorothy Perkins idly daubing at a futurist picture and Loal Beck the sylph-like model.

The Hindu servant appeared to show me out. " Wait! " I cried. " You ha e forgotten one. " " Forgotten one? " .She gazed again into the ball. " There is no one else, " she said. As she spoke she half raised the veil that had covered her face. I stared at her. " Why, why, it can ' t be you, Madame Zara, who would have guessed?

He moaned day and night because be could onh- stay in the pool and never see the rest of the world. In a city near by the wood there lived a very poor, unhappy little girl. She bad man_y brothers and sisters, and she had to work very hard. Whenever she would have a spare moment she would run away to the forest and lie down on the cool moss to look at the patches of blue sky between the tree tops. One day, especially, she was verv unhappy. Her mother had given her more than her lot of work to do. In desperation she went o ' er the fence and started for the wood. As she hurried along she said, " I am so unhappy all day long. I have heard it said that the Blue Bird brings happiness. There are many birds in the forest and perhajis 1 shall find the Blue Bird. " By this time she had reached the edge of the forest. About noon the Blue Frog heard sounds of footsteps coming toward the pool. He was very fright- ened and went to the very bottom of the pool. The little girl sat down beside the pool and looked up at the trees and all around, hoping to see the Blue Bird. She saw many birds, but none of them were blue. The curiosity of the Blue Frog had overcome his cowardice. Rising slowly to the surface, he stuck his head out of the water. Then he came out all the wav and stood on a rock. 40 H The little girl ' s eyes wandered to the pool where she saw the Blue Frog. " Oh, that is the Blue Bird. Xo, it is not — it is a blue frog. I am sure it will do. " The frog was very frightened and he jumped to the bottom of the pool. Soon he saw her hand come feeling down where he was. He croaked loudly with fright. But the hand grabbed him and pulled him to the top. It put him in her dress and he was hurried out of the forest, across a held, and down a road until the road leading to the city was reached. hen the little girl reached her home her mother was ery angry. " What do you mean b} ' leaving? " her mother said very severelv. " Oh, mother dear, I have found Happiness. Aren ' t you glad? " .She dropped the frog from her lap and he croaked so very loudly that it woke the baby up. One week passed and the Blue Frog was bluer than ever, and so was the little girl and all her family, because the Blue Frog had croaked all the week. He had upset the milk, slept in the parlor, and swum in the drinking water. The little girl ' s oldest brother came into the room with the frog by the leg and said to her, " He went into the parlor a nd ran up mother ' s friend ' s leg and she went out the door very angry Now, see here, you take him away or 1 will kill him. " With this he dropped the frog into her lap. She was not sorry to part with him. and so she ran out the door and to the blue pool, and she dropped the Blue Frog into the water. He immediately turned a bright green with happiness, and as the little girl went home she felt very happy because there would be no more frog to take care of. The frog always remained green and never complained of being unhappy. And as for the little girl and her family, they were so happy not to have a frog to bother with that they never complained of being unhappy again. Miriam Duni;ax, Sczcu ' h Grade. The Good and the Bad Girl CHiiRi; were once two little girls whose names were Rose and May. Rose was a ery bad girl. She never minded her mother, but May was just the opposite. .She would do anything to help her. One day as the two children were walking through the forest, they sat down to rest and fell asleep. May dreamt that she was walking in the forest and saw a tree with a hole in it. May climbed the tree and fell down. down, until at last she came to the bottom. She saw a lot of fairies dancing before their Fairy Queen. She was delighted to see all the pretty fairies and the pretty queen. The queen had golden hair, which streamed down her back, and a crown all set with diamonds and pearls; a dress of the finest lace one e er saw. Before I go an)- further I must tell _ -ou what Rose dreamt. . ' he, too, had found the hole in the tree and went down, down. Rut do you think she found the fairies? No, she did not. She found a red house and opened the doi3r. What do you think she saw ? Walls of deep red rubies sparkled before her, and instead of seeing fairies she saw little bad men with teeth all sticking out of their mouths, all dressed in red. The king had horns on his head and eyes of red fire. May dreamt of the fairies dancing around her, and gi ing her candy and cake. Just as she awoke. Rose screamed and put her arms around May and tnld her of her dream. May then told her of her dream, and said, " If you were a good girl maybe you would have a nice dream, too. " After that Rose was always good and she had nice dreams, too. tiALKN Hatih, High Fourth Grade. ' % ID ' CkA«AL ' J-O Sept. 2. School opens. Chaperones are still in vogue. Sept. 7.

' BASKETBALL fooN after the liard grind of school had once more commenced, basketball practice was begun, with Miss Breed as coach.

Florence Clark was elected captain and Helen Carr manager, and games were arranged with Miss Harker ' s, Miss Burke ' s, and Miss Ransom ' s schools. Miss Harkkr ' s, 22 A. H, S., 27 The first game of the season was played on Miss Harker ' s court. A number of girls went down for the event and all had a delightful time. In spite of a muddy court, the home team was victorious by a score of 27 to 22. M. H. S. — Forwards, Wheeler, Canty; Centers, Calhoun, Trefts; C.uards, Watt. Orwall (Coleman, Elliot, Hellman). A. H.

These girls put up a good hght, but Miss Burke ' s school won by a score of 24 to 17. Miss Ransom ' s, 48 ' .A. H. .S., 28 After the defeat by Miss Burke ' s team, and the knowledge that on March 24 we were to play Miss Ransom ' s school, the girls turned out for practice slightly better than previously. The game, therefore, was not entirely lacking in interest. In the second half, after we had become accustomd to their slippery court, our girls managed some cle er plays, but their baskets had been too many to give us any hope of winning. The whistle blew with the score 2S to 48. M. R. S. — Forwards, F. Boardman, J. Merriman ; Centers, Lara Pratt, H. Walker; Guard, J. ' ilson. A. H. S. — Forwards, H. Pomeroy, H. Carr; Centers, P.

RIDING This sport has given the boarders a great deal of pleasure, and each week- end has found many enthusiasts cantering over the delightful trails in the Berkeley hills. A trip to the Mount Diablo Country Club was an especially enjoyable ride taken by our oldest riders, Marion Norton, Florence Clark, Alice Clark and Janette Comstock. This quartet, with the instructor, started out bright and early one Saturday morning and spent that night at the Diablo Country Club, returning Sunday evening, after a wonderful time. SWIMMING Despite the icy water in the pool, many of Neptune ' s fair daughters have fared forth each week to plunge into its depths and to proxe their ability in this aquatic art by passing many and various tests. 4 " ] t r e n c h R e f n g c e C Ii 1 1 d r e ii a n d the Red C r o s s Hs THK SA1UKI-; of battle cleared and the thunder of the guns died away, the American Red Cross ambulance entered the destroyed French village, proudly bearing the insignia of mercy. Our men were the first to enter and found their way immediately to the abri, those underground ca es of safety where whole families lived with their precious bundles of rags, inside of which breathed the small heart of an infant child. Sometimes two or more babies were the " find " of that village — children who in the rush had been deserted; or in the excitement forgotten by parents who had their hands full guiding the lives ■ of children whose existence seemed a certaint}-, since they had already struggled through four years of war and still li ed ; or, as more often the case, deserted because the father was fighting and the mother had been killed while foraging for food above ground. These tin}- bits of humanity, counting their existence only by days or weeks, were mostly born of tubercular parents in the caves; with this inheritance and little available food or milk, we found them under starvation conditions. A hurried trip back to Asile Caserne de Luxembourg, the barrack home of the children, which meant clean beds, milk, fresh air, untiring care and watch- fulness and constant medical attention, saved for I ' rance many of her sons and daughters. How often we used to say, " Doctor, if you can save the life of t nil baby you surely will get the Croix de Guerre. " And those doctors and nurses, in the course of months, would show with justified pride Lucien, who when he came had no bones strong enough to support his back or little legs and arms, but — Lucien still sleeping through the sunny days in the sunshine fighting the white plague. Many older children, like Pierre, were in our children ' s hospital nursing an amputated leg or arm which was blown off because " we di ln ' l [50 1 know " that loaded hand-serenades and guns were not the normal pla things of children. Beside our hundred-odd sick youngsters, we had two hundred kiddies under two years of age, foundHngs or orjihans, including our three hundred hale and hearty sturdy boys and girls — at least sturdy after they had been with us some time. The older children all went to a I ' rench school conducted on the grounds and joined in organized recreation after school hours. We American girls had great fun teaching them American games in French ' and progressed famously, all things considered, until it came time for disciplinary action. Then with all our combined ocabularies we could do nothing but stutter and gesticulate wildly with our hands. Swimming in the Moselle River and basketball games fascinated them the most, because the only thing they wanted to play were war games when they dressed up in helmets and gas masks. All our well children came from nearby towns ( we were only twehe kilometers behind the lines ) which were being attacked by gas, shells and bombs, and all of them were sent to us by the mayor of their town or their parents because they were too little to put on and keep on their gas-masks. Can you imagine the thoughts, hearts and minds of the children up to eight years of age who could remember nothing save of a world at war — the nightly airplane raids (even over our camp), the rush to the trenches for safety, the rattling of the windows by the concussion of the guns, the nights oddly dark " because, Mademoiselle, the sky is not lit up by bursting shells " ? It was with these children — the future of France — with which we American girls had the rare privilege of working. To tell more would be only to convince you that high school, and as much more education as possible, must be completed before you may have the privilege of entering world problems to serve with friendship as your gift.
