At time , however, he is full of mirth because of his rimmI sense of humor Hi record a a scholar excels that of any one of his classmates. The dissatisfaction which he expressed in receiving only ninety-seven per cent in intermediate algebra shows that he is always out for a higher mark. It seems that he has accomplished every work which he has tackled Therefore there is not a doubt in our minds that he will prove himself a success as a railroad man. FRANK ST1 ART BI RD ” Frofemmtr” 145 Mount Vernon Avenue St Mary's Noah Webster and Frank have much in common. One has written a dictionary; the other is fully capable of surpassing him by his great command of long words -hyper-polysyTlabic, sesquipedalians, a he would remark without any apparent effort I'sually he is taciturn and unassuming, but in his excellent essays and ready arguments on profound topics, his broad knowledge, keen observations, and deep thinking forcibly assert themselves. In the English class he is unsurpassed especially in the art of composition. He takes a great interest in chemistry Despite this scientific propen ity, hi sole ambition is to become an author, to 1m a regular contributor to the “Atlantic Monthly” and to posses several shelves of his own work in hi already wcll filled library. J.KO JOHN BRONS ".Sp vs" 41 Wondwnrd Street Corpus Christi "Specs" is a firm believer in the old adage. "I augh and the world laugh with you." and he certainly lives up to his lM lief for there is a standing reward for anybody who ever saw him doing otherwise. Besides being a player on the Reserve Basketball team, he is a member of the Hermits and a prominent figure in all their meeting . We feel that there is a great humorist lost in "Specs" and we expect to hear of his supplanting Will Rogers in that field, but whatever he enters in the future, be it public or private life, if he applies that same stick-to-it-iveness and energy that he now applies to his studies, we feel that he will make whatever goal he aspires to fireIU Y Fit A NCIS CLIFFORI) "Doc” 1467 South Avenue St. Boniface '■nor’ is our universal skeptic, llis questions are as baffling as an income tax blank. He astounds his pedagogue with the profound arguments he weaves,—yet all this is due to the deep interest he takes in his studies Although "Doc" is not a mediciner. he has relieved many a fluttering student with his prudent panacea. So long. Doe. BERNARD FRANCIS CLINTON "Jui va" .ri01 Lyell Avenue Holy Apostles "Juggs" is a firm adherent of the maxim "Make hay while the sun shines." for he eagerly absorbs all the knowledge imparted by his teachers. No. he is not a book-worm, for he is a member of the Hermits, which fact naturally makes him an all-around good scout and incapable of such an atrocity. His spirit of optimism has never failed to brighten up the school year and he keeps the class from dragging along by his witty remarks, which always cause great mirth. If he advances as far along the road to success as he has on the road to our hearts it argues well for his future prosperity and happiness. (JERALD JOHN BCR NS . 112 Conkey Avenue "Jack” St. Bridget's Jack is a hard worker and possesses a brilliant mind. He has succeeded in almost everything he has undertaken. Jack natural ability as an atfilete lm enabled him to uphold Aquinas' good name both on the field and in the classroom. He takes an active interest in all sports, and is a member of the baseball team. No mishap seems to disturb him. but instead it seems to spur him to greater efforts. His absence will be keenly felt but, no doubt, his memory will linger for a long time in our hearts. H1XJOHN GERALD CONNELLY "Jack” 412 Sawyer Street St. Monica’s “Jack" is a born leader, a real organiaer, a worthy successor to the late Tammany leader of the Metropolis. He has a smile as perpetual as the sunshine, a voice to harungue herds, us we know from the assemblies. He is a busy Jack, always has something brewing, accomplishes much, is always under fire, yet as composed as a Sphinx. Being a rambler on the G. V. I , greens, his practice stands him well; for many a time has he been tied at the eighteenth hole, and stendusl for the winning putt to the cup. We like Jack because he is steady. FRANCIS XAVIER CCLUNAN ”Frank” 733 Genesee Street St. Joseph’s Collegiate. Buffalo Frank is a philosopher, a friend, one deeply interested in Latin classics, humorous and a believer in that saying. "Think first and then speak,” which he follows out not only in English but in all his classes. He tries to tell us he doesn’t study but his records show otherwise. He aspires to l e a ball player, and if he enters that profession with the name earnestness he has shown in his stu lies, tell Everett Scott to look out for his record. The Senior Class wishes you the greatest success, Frank. B E R N AIID JA N1E8 CO N N1: ELY "Hunk” 17 Electric Avenue Sacred Heart • Bunk” is a gentleman and a scholar. He can enjoy himself and still keep up to the standard in his studies. Reading is one thing that ’’Bunk” likes. As a result, he is planning a trip to Mars. His greatest weakness is his love for red-headed girls. neveuBKKTKAND DA NIKI. KHMANN “Bert” 100 Howard Street 8t. Bonifaec If you are searching for a man, here ia Bert Khmann! This is the least that can he said of him. In addition, he is un athlete and a student. In fact, he is an all-around man and chum. Although, at times, he is somewhat reserved in manner, those about him know that his broad smile and ready wit give joy wherever he goes. Of course, we know that "Bert,” going forth into the world armed with the knowledge attained at Aquinas, will conquer all ob-staeles and arrive at success early in life. Good luck, Bert! LEON WILLIAM KII KMANTROUT “Leon” 1923 Culver Itoiul St. Francis Xavier I.eon, by his eager desire for sports, has attained a worthy position in basketball on the the reserve team. His success in school has been coually as good as his basketball ability. However, almut three nights a week his social pursuits seem to interfere with his doing his home work and sometimes he gets in trouble with his teachers When he isn’t relating some experience, fir a new trick tried with his .Studebaker, he is generally studying. Chemistry experiments seems to interest I.eon most and he watches as close as he can to let the other fellow play with the fire His powers of observation will doubtless make him a weather reporter or forest ranger. JOH N THOM AS DEI. AN IV “Johnnie” Avon. N.Y. St. Agnes' Johnnie is another famous student from the wilds of Avon. But who eoukl guess it? He favors us with his big brood grin every morning about 9:30 (if the train happens to stop at Avon). Johnnie is built for l oth comfort and speed but judging from the time he arrives at History class he flourishes the former characteristic moat. But Johnnie gets there just the same and we wish him all kinds of success. ei htWILLIAM JOHN FRANK 'Biir Ridge Road, Irondcquoit St. Andrew's Hill, by his aggressiveness jn his studies, will undoubtedly beeonie a great man some day His ability in English literature is superb. His keen sense of humor, and his ability driving a Nash have made him many friends. He always has an unceasing smile on his fare when he is doing his Chemistry experiments. Everything that BUI doea is undertaken with his whole heart and mind, no matter if it be studies or jokes. Bill will always be thought of in future years by his fellow- students from Aquina Institute as a keen pursuer of a prosperous business HENRY EDWARD GILLETTE 177 Brow n Street Hank'' Cathedral Grammar In sport, in studies, in business life, in professional life, invariably the aggressor is the person who succeeds It is his manner, his initiative which forces him into the front ranks of nil work that he is interested in. There is one man in this class whom we are able to cull the ‘Aggressor.” and that man is Henry Gillette. He, by his constant, hard, aggressive school work, has attained a high standing in our class. We all sincerely hope that Hank will continue that spirit of aggressiveness in the business world and. if he does, success will be immediate. Don't weaken. Hank. VINCENT JOSEPH FESS “Vinft 44 Warner Street Holy Family Yin has shown throughout our four years' association that he is always on top for the perpetual smile. He has demonstrated to us, throughout this time, his ambition and ability as a student. Although he is inclined to be quiet, his nature is anything but solemn. His spirit is one of a conqueror, for he conquers his studies as Caesar did Gaul We hope the best of success to you. Yin, as well as an abundance of prosperity in later life. nineJAMES HERBERT GROW MEY “Doc” 147 Webster Avenue Corpus Christi “Doe" is another one of our basketball fans. He boasts of having seen every one of the home games and has cheered the team to victory. Sometimes he gets an attack of lazi-ness in his studies but for the most part he is ambitious He takes his school studies rather seriously. If “Doc” takes his ambition nnd seriousness with him when he leaves school, his name will some day be ranked with those of great men. JOHN’ RUSSELL HAYES • fuss” 1019 Park Avenue St. Joseph's. Utica, N.Y. Here we have ■Russ,” a prince of good fellow's. When it comes to upsetting a perfectly good senior meeting. Russ takes the cake. His usual plea is that the meeting be adjourned Chtmidy i hia specialty although ho spends a very great deal of time on his English anil Spanish. He is always a perfect example of cheerfulness. GEORGE CHARLES GREEN “Irish” 274 Barrington Street Nazareth Hall Academy In George, we have one of the most popular fellows in the class of ’24. He never allows his social engagements to interfere with his studies, much to the delight of our beloved teachers. Although George studies hard, he is always in the midst of the fun in and around the school. Through his continued perseverance, George is bound to become a great man in his day. tenLOUIS ALOY8IU8 II PFA "Louie“ 1(J8 Curlew 8treet Holy Rosary “Louie” is a diligent worker who has accomplished much in the four vears that we have known him. He ha fulfilled his duty both to his school and to his fellow students. Ever enthusiastic, he has taken a deep interest in any worthy undertaking and has always helped to make it a success. His agreeable nature and pleasant smile make him a popular member of our class, (jood things are wrapped in small packages ami we arc sure he is no exception. EDWARD HOWARD KANNAN 7 «nV" 221 Avis Street Sacred Heart “Howie ' is without a doubt one of the most popular boys at Aquinas Institute. He is never seen without a smile on his face He is a great basketball fan and also an accomplished athlete. He was a member of the Reserve Basket Rail team for one year and a player on the Ball team for two years But '‘Howie" is also very good at indoor sports, lies ides having a strong liking for pretty girls. We wish him much luck and success in all he undertakes. KARL JOHN HOW ARD “Hotrit” 422 Trcmont Street Cathedral Latin School. Cleveland Howard’s radiant smile and magnetic personality have made for him many friends both among the students and among the professors. He is possessed of a natural inclination to mathematical studies. His penchant for this kind of study causes him to be a veritable encyclopaedia in matters appertaining to these pursuits. Rumor has it that he is n tennis player of no little celebrity, being as adept in that art as in everything else. Without doubt, he will some day occupy the chair of mathematics in a renowned institution. elevenCHESTER EDWARD KLEE "Chet” 28 Alexander Street St. Boniface Having become a skillful pianist. ‘'Chet” has now turned his attention to the organ which lie will, no doubt, soon master, for whatever he does he docs well, and so intense is his love for music (classical especially) that he spends most of the lunch period playing "Peer Gym" and other favorites. After he has succeeded Paderewski he is going to comp ise an opera. “Hamlet.” He is a gentleman and a scholar, a deep thinker, an orator who commands attention, and an excellent writer, and his erudition, which is profound as well as extensive, is never displayed pedantic-all)'. though by all he is known as a student of more than average ability. As a chemist he has no superior among his classmates and, above all. he is a true friend. JOHN ADAM LAWI m "Johnny” Pittaford. N.Y. I’nion Free Johnny is a new friend in our midst having come from Pittsford High last year. But in the short time he has been with us he has ac |uircd numberless friend through his readiness to lend a helping hand He is a brilliant student and noted for his wonderful strength. But. as he is strong, he is also weak and his weakness is the fair sex. We expect to see Johnny a successful farmer. He leaves with our liest wishes for success and luck. JAMES VINCENT KANNAN "Jimmie” 221 Avis Street Sacred Heart Fortune favors the gentleman and scholar. Jimmie has won success in his studies and in the realm of athletics, also a difficult attainment one must admit, and one worthy of much praise and admiration. We predict a brilliant future for Jimmie and he goes forth into life with our whole-hearted wishes for continued success. twelveJOSEPH ROBERT McGRAIL "Hob" 837 South C'linton Street St. Boniface Bob in one of the most popular fellow in the school. Him quiet demeanor nnd winning personality have endeared him to his fellow Aq ui ni a ns. He can generally be seen on the corner at Weber's having a little tussle with Hill O’Reilly. His manly form in an Aauinas banket hall uniform excited the admiration of all the Maroon and White rooters. Aside from his fine work on the basketball court, he has shown some real ability in his classes, nnd we expect that Aquinas will have turned out another fine man in Robert McGrail. His literary ability was well-evidenced in the masterpieces he composetl during his high school course nnd he is also a cartoonist of no mean ability He was a hard worker for all school activities and his school spirit we respect and admire. If he puts the same spirit into hia life work, we know that Robert McGrail will be a great success. ROBERT FREDERICK McGRAW "Hob" 271 I tart mouth Street Nasareth Hall Academy Hercules may have been a Roman but Bob resales in Rochester. Do not infer though that Bob is entirely a man of site He came to Aquinas in 21 ami is carrying off his diploma in three years. This is really an accomplishment Imm-uusc in spite of his excellent qualities Bob enjoys the blissfulness of the absence of books. Bob does not talk the loudest but his popularity surely stands out. Wishing Bob success is a waste of time for he will get it anyway. ROY FRANCIS McMahon "Mae" 102 Flower City Bark Barred Heart '.l ui ' a feather anti a chief a rotl. An honed man’a the not. led i cork of dot!" How well this fits in the rase of Macf A little student with a great head. He is always on hand to enliven his classes through his humorous remarks He works diligently and day after day the products of his honest toil receive the commendation of his teachers Mae has anient faith in honest toil nnd as u result we expect to see him make a name for himself and his school. Good luck to you. Mac. thirteenLEO ALBERT MARTIN “Spike” 263 Averill Avenue St. Boniface "Spike” is a popular student among the seniors. He aspires to be a baseball and a basketball player and, to a certain extent, has succeeded. He has successfully held the coveted position of baseball manager. When Spike is not busy in class, he is pounding the typewriter either for himself or for someone else'a interest. If he continues his business-like ways, one ran see nothing but success and prosperity in the future for Spike. FREDERICK AI Ol'STINK MKRLAU “Fred” 256 Oxford Street Sacred Heart Fred's presence in a senior meeting insures a humorous time. His sense of humor makes him a favorite with both the fellows ami the fair sex. Just ask Fred to see his diary. He carries on many classes at Weber’s ami can generally be found there during school hours. Chemistry seems to have a strange appeal for him and he puts much work on this subject. This, combined with his love of dancing, makes him a scientific dancer. JAMES SAMUEL MALLEY “Jim” 507 Chili Avenue Cathedral Crammar A more noble spirit no one can possess than that of true sincerity. Here we have "Big Jim Malley who is a young man who does own that noble quality. From tieginning to end, in work or in play, you will find Jim the sincere and faithful partner. Rewards, he does not claim; your gain is hia reward. fourteenJOHN CLIFFORD MOKT1MKK "Mori” H Wmt High Tmwr St. Mary’ Thf vicissitudes of life affect smiling John very little; his aggrnwvf and energetic spirit ran never repulaed by a mere set-bark. Hr must go forward, on and on, always wearing a cheery rountrnanre, always enjoying the brighter side of the Fates. John is loyal; seat 3. aeetion A, never was without an occupant on Friday nights, for Mort was a true Aquinian. His studies also felt the ra-diance of hin loyalty, he plugged at them, ever eon fide nt of ultimate success. JOHN FRANCIS MOYNIliAN Heinie'' 85 Brayer Street Holy Apostles’ John is a firm believer in silenre during reritations and when in the preeenre of girls lie does, however, occasion-ally speak during a recitation but the spell of the fair sex is too great; he utters not a word. He is a very food student and we an- confident that he will succeed in life. As a cheerleader he can’t be beaten; even Solomon, in all his glory, has nothing on this fair-haired youth when he is leading the cheers. Heinie is a lender of the Hermit Club and is very popular about the school. He is as yet unknown to fame and fortune but his hard work will bring him to the front. Go to it. Heinie! CHARLES JOHN MICHELS "Charlie" 175 Averill Avenue St. Mary’s "Continued cheerfulness is a sign of wisdom." This in a way might be said of Charlie, for when you meet him he always has a cheery word for you As for the wisdom, picture Charlie as anything else but a successful man twenty years from now. Besides this, in actual life he is a true Aquinian student, an enthusiastic rooter of the basketball team and an a!l around good fellow. We wish you good luck for the future. Charlie. fifteenHUBERT HENRY OBERL1E8 "Hub" 704 ? outh Clinton Street St. Boniface Various good traits are concealed within the person of Hubert Obcrlic . As our class president we are destitute of words to praise his sincere efforts and diligence in class work. He is preparing for an engineering course, and is looking forward to the construction of a tunnel under the Atlantic. He is a student of the Spanish tongue, and intends to marry a Spaniard: love with them is so much more romantic, Hubert claims. His entrance to c'ass guarantees us much mirth—h:» chicken laughing is our constant delight: for further particulars on this point see Father Brien. With such a pleasing personality as "Hub” possesses, a character higher than Doheny’s, and with his incessant hard study, we assure him a successful life.— Adioe, mi amigo y colega. EDWARD AUGUSTINE MURPHY "E r 70 Glasgow Street Immaculate Conception Let us introduce "Ed,” our whimsical advocate of wit, humor and aesthetic dancing His gyrations and pirouettes are familiar maneuvers alsHit the school building. He is also somewhat of an aviator, part of his time bring spent in flying in and out (mostly out) of his various classes. It is also rumored that Eddy in regarded as a finished artist in the musical world (?i but despite his activities along educational and musical lines our Adonis is a prominent. figure at the numerous "frat” hops. It is a decided treat to see his collegiate brogues tripping the dance floor to the strains of "Steamboat Sal.” ARTHUR MICHAEL O’MEARA "Art" 11211 East Main Street Corpus Christ i No. this tall, dark, handsome youth is no fancy of an imaginative mind, he is a real, flesh in the blood, regular fellow. He is an important factor in all class activities and is in hearty accordance with every plan of the boys. His wanderings in English VI class are a constant source of amusement to his fellow students ami if it weren’t for the guiding influence of a certain English teacher. Art would now Ik "fifty miles from nowhere" and then some. But despite li’l Art ha’s roamings and an occasional craving for argumentation with his professors, he is recognised as one of the most popular seniors in the class. sixteenWILLIAM JKROMK SIMONS "fair' 40 Avenue I) St. Joseph’s Bill is an industrious fellow—school work and basketball occupying a good share of hi time. In school his work is above the average despite his frequent absences We expect Bill will soon be a court interpreter, his extensive knowledge of Greek. French and Albanian will be helpful to him. HERMAN ANTHONY SOMERS "Hoo irr" 189 Atlantic Avenue St. Patrick’s School. Buffalo As you would suspect from his picture. Herman is a perfect lover. He has a weakness for girl , especially blondes He is an active member of the Hermit Club, and creates quite an uproar at the meetings by displaying the photograph of his latest victim. We expect to sec Herman take Robert Mantell’s place in the future, as a Shakespearian player Those who have seen him on the stage at the Lyceum tell us that he is very popular with the theater-goer Hooaier is popular with his fellow-students and also with his teachers. because liesides giving considerable time to fun-making, he finds time to study, and always comes out on top. LEO RAYMOND RAl'BKR "Drmonihmrs” 758 North Clinton Street St. Michael's A great etymologist, a real orator, a true leader, and a helpful classmate! Rauber is a familiar figure standing before his classmates, with his hand in his coat delivering an oration. But his fame does not stop here, it enters the field of I atin. On the works of Virgil he is an authority of no mean repute. May his progress in the work! of strife be equal to that of his success as a student. seventeenFRANCIS EDWARD ST. DENIS "Saint” Rod Crook, N.Y. St. Mary' An all around good follow and student in Francis. Ilia congenial manner ami keen sense of humor make him appreciated and welcome in any circle. Our plana to make him an understudy of Harold Lloyd were altered when we realized hia ability in the engineering line We have great hopes for Francis as a mechanical genius, and should not be amazed to see him the constructor of the first elevated railway in Rochester. JOHN JOSEPH TANGNEY "John” 329 Plymouth Avenue Merriman School. Cincinnati John has impressed us as l eing a person of deep thought and power, a person who possi-sse the abilty to reason intelligently and soundly on vital and difficult problems. It is because of these fluidities that we have sought his prudent advice and counsel on many complicated questions which were beyond our understanding. We feel sure that John’s prudence and wisdom will play the same important part in the world’ affairs as they have in schooj activities and we are confident that they will la the medium of his reaching the goal of Success. LESLIE THOMAS SPIEGEL “ ’’ W)7 Wilkins Street Holy Redeemer Here we have the highly touted, proud possessor of "that schoolgirl complexion " To make the acquaintance of "lx ” is to know the true Palmolive. Rut I Arm' activities are not confined to soap. His taciturn method of learning seems to be a most successful one. His scholastic standing and his court and diamond performance are closely rivaled by his ability a a dancer. He is l ound to be a winner in life as is evidenced by his journalistic prowess maintained in the sport section of one of our prominent dailies throughout the past season. His true character is marred only by the fact that lie trie t ti ll u he doesn't study. Nevertheless, none rank higher in our respect and admiration than "lx .” eighteenRALPH CHARLKS WIDMAN “Ralph" 195 Campbell Park Holy Family When it cornea to chemistry class. Ralph in always the most anient believer in theories. If he ran net out of school without any one of the faculty siting him he diligently goes to his plan- of business as drug store clerk. Whenever he is not working lie spends a goodly part of his time playfully battling with his fellow classmates Some teacher try to argue with him about scientific theories but Ralph always seems to give them a good run. He expects to be a great scientist some day and we think he is the making of one. CLAYTON CHARLKS WOODRCFF "Clapt” 121H Ontario Street Corpus Christi The more fortunate of us are endowed with either a pleasing personality, good looks, or wealth. Clayt is certainly most fortunate in l eing granted all three, the last mentioned seems of little consequence as he intends to become a banker and as such we have complete assurance of his sucre . During the year he has gallantly tussled with the higher mathematic so that in later life he will be able to efficiently make out his income tax reports. On his becoming a financial king, we hope he will not forget his less fortunate fellow students nor his Alma Mater. WILLIAM JAMES WARNER "Wildcat ' 13Vi Richard Street Blessed Sacrament Bill, ''Collegiate Bill" to be exact, is the social hound of our class Paul Whitcmnn and Hughie Barrett are well nruuainted with a good-natured fellow in "twenty-two inchers.” stepping to the strains of his "Syncopated Blues.” Bill, however, does not allow his social functions to interfere with his studies for he is a most favorable person in the eye of his teachers. However. Bill’s excuses are the only thorns in the side of our English teacher and these are not ao painful, because he seldom see them. Bill has all the car-mark of a college chap and all he needs is a diploma. But just watch him get it like a true wildcat. hive feenGreen be the sod above thee, Friend of our high school days! None knew thee but to love thee. None named thee but to praise. Adapted. A friend! Yes, a friend indeed! Harold Murphy was a true, loyal comrade, one to be depended upon; one who never counted the cost of kindness; a friend in need. At all times he was at the service of his school and classmates. He was not selfish; not harm bearing; but ever willing, generous, dutiful. An enemy to no one; a wary foe compelling wariness in his adversary as he built up about him reinforcements which generally proved unconquerable. As a classmate he ever upheld what was just and right; he made goodness victorious; and he conquered wrong. He was a dispeller of gloom and the harbinger of mirth and joy. A student? Yes! One to be relied upon, one not endowed with extraordinary mental power but one who achieved great things through constant endeavor. He was not, however, a grind, a bookworm, a dreamer; he was an ardent student. Justice must have ever been his slogan for it was this manly virtue he upheld in study, in class activities, and in all his dealings with his friends. He asked little. He gave all he had in the service of his classmates and fellow-students. A man? Yes. When shall we look upon the like again? He could stand on his feet and talk for himself, not boastful but ever conscious of the value of true worth. Fettered by physical weakness, he travelled a path not free from obstacles, a path on which many of stronger physique would have stumbled and even fallen in surrender. Not he! By his gentle calmness labor became sweet. Again we say he was a friend, a student, a man ! A man in the making; a student whom a teacher should rejoice in meeting; a friend, this he was to us, his classmates who will treasure his memory while we grieve in his loss. God rest thee, friend! This sweetly simple prayer We whisper o’er and o’er; May Christ conduct thee to His mansioned home Where sorrow is no more! And when, the cycling years now wholly sped, We reach the eternal shore, You’ll welcome to the Palace of the King Aquinas' Class of nineteen twenty-four. Louis Edelman.Co Conquer Our vessel had left the mooring. It was headed home once more. From its deck that glad May morning I viewed the fast fading shore. Quebec stood above the river On a mountain of solid stone; Its citadel, a sentinel, Guarding Frontenac alone. Ne’er had a sight more impressed me Than that on the river bank. As I gazed on the storied fortress My mind into musing sank. Ah! Wolfe was a valiant soldier To scale yonder cliff so high ! To fight on the Plains of Abraham; To fight? Yes; to conquer and die! To accomplish a task like his, I thought, Is an honor few may own; But to conquer in Life’s great battle. May be done without leaving home. Conquer yourself. Be your master. It is only a hero who can. Do this and you’ll be a soldier, Aye more, you will be a man. Harold Murphy(Emummial ClaaBJAMBS PATRICK CTLHANE “ ?« " 170 Clay Avenue Sacred Heart Speaking of speed demons. Red has set a record as being the fastest typist in his class. In fact, he is so fast he thinks that in a few years he wdl try for a world's record. He attributes nis brilliant success in English to his power as an orator. When called upon for oral English he responds by astonishing the class with a most conscientiously selected and prepared oration. His business ability, combined with his wonderful use of English, is sure to make Red attain the goal of Ins ambition. When it cornea to work, he is right there with the giMsis. We surely wish you good luck and success in future years. Red. ARTHUR HENRY DAVIS “Art” 161 Broadway St. Mary’s Art is the Speed King of the room in typewriting and. after finishing his own letters. Art usually does a couple for someone else. Art and Dick Palmer are the Gallagher and Shean of the Class, find Art and you’ll find Dick. Art is bound to be a big business man someday. DONA I.D EDWARD COUGHLIN "Don" 4H6 Jay Street St. Peter and Paul’s Work and Don never agr c He is no speed king in shorthand or typewriting but like the turtle he will get there eventually If Don ever settles down and gets to work we are sure he will lie directing some slow gang of workmen on an all-day excavating job. twenty-threeCLARENCE ROBERT PALMER "Dirk” 113 Scager Street Blessed Sacrament Dick, a he is called by his classmates, is rather fond of outdoor sports. Although he has not entered into any of the school teams he will probably be the second "Babe Ruth." Dick can also do typewriting and shorthand very well and he has our best wishes for a successful future ns a stenographer. JOSEPH THOM AS ROSSITER "Joe” 348 Gregory Street St. Boniface little Joe is in a class by himself when it comes to staying out of school and getting away with it. When not absent.

E T E €nglt$fj €bucatton anti tljc business ttibcitt HE young man of to-day who wishes to be successful in the business world must have a thorough knowledge of English. A good foundation in this subject should be laid in the grammar school and high school. It is true, of course, that the more English education the business man possesses the better will be his opportunities for “getting ahead”, for nothing is more embarrassing to one in a commercial position than is the lack of words or making a mistake in grammar. In almost every city in the United States, and particularly in our own city of Rochester, there are excellent opportunities to obtain a good English education. Study words, words, words and their uses, until such a vocabulary is worked up that we do not have to stop regularly to refer to Webster, or to any other standard dictionary. My advice to the student of business without a thorough knowledge of the English language is to obtain it as soon as possible or give up the idea of ever becoming a successful business man. Students of language state that the working vocabulary of the average person contains a scant three hundred words. You, the future business men of Rochester, are intimately acquainted with the three hundred old cronies who inhabit your craniums; but what do you do when you meet strange and unfamiliar words? What course do you pursue when you run across possible recruits to the battalions of words already at your beck and call? Do you pass these new comers by with a blank stare or do you hail them, find out their meaning, and place them at your tongue’s end, ready to be called upon when needed? When you stumble across a word you do not know, stab it with a mental pin and stick it in your memory. By all means gain an English education, even by dint of hard labor, and do not be doomed to disappointment as so many others have been in the past who tried to rise to high position without a supply of good English at their command. James Culhane, Commercial Department. § § Clap A war-lord quelled and gyved the world. Great pelf was his; his banners wide He flung from Rome to Zion-side, In regal splendor ever furled. Remaining years he spent in sin, In bouts of wassail, plunder, wrong. His realm was shook, he ruled not long— The worms of earth devoured him. A serf who tilled his land by day Trod the dirt that made the king. Spurned the slime that was the thing, And built his house with that same clay. O. t irml n-nixT H E A K E T E l noU) Cijpself OUR years ago a friend of mine, Joe Rees, was in his fourth year in high school. He was an exceedingly likeable fellow, with what one would call a charming personality. Joe was a good piano-player and would let his school w'ork slide, if necessary, to play for his friends. But in spite of his slack ways he always seemed to be both influential and on good standing with the students and the faculty of the school. At graduation time something happened that was considered very unfortunate. Joe needed but ten credits to graduate and, out of five examinations, he passed only one. Of course he was withheld from participating in the graduation exercises. There was a great deal of discussion over this. Some said Joe got just what he deserved because he relied too much upon his ability to get by. Some of his friends went so far as to say that he was already shelved for a cheap position. There was no doubt that not being among the graduates was a hard blow to him. Not until recently did I know how it affected him; for shortly after the graduation exercises, I lost track of him. A few weeks ago while in town a friend of mine told me of Joe’s remarkable success in life. He is sales manager of an organization with a country-wide reputation. He has over a hundred men under him. In this field he has acquired the reputation of the liveliest and most diligent man in the organization. He has shown the old salesmen how' to sell. Since he came into the organization he has more than tripled the annual sales. When I heard these things. I was deeply interested. I went to his office and, w-hile we wrere talking of the old days, I reminded him that there were a lot of things that he did not take very seriously—his school work for instance. “What happened?” I asked. “Did the graduation exercises have anything to do with the great change that has come over you?” Rees laughed. “That had everything to do with it,” he answered. “When I saw all my class-mates on the stage and me not amongst them, it made me terribly sore at first, at what, I knew' not. Then I saw light. “It was my fault that I was not amongst them. Not that I had been unlucky. What was wTong? “For the first time. I tried to see myself as other people saw me, my bad points and my good points. Being able to make friends readily is a great asset but it is not everything. I had been letting little w'ork that I disliked slide. When down in black and w'hite it was a great shock to me. “That little analysis of myself was the turning point of my life. I resolved not to let the by-products of my mind go to waste. So to-day I get over ten times the profits of my labor writh just a little more energy.” Several things about Rees’s experience need to be thought over by us, especially the importance of studying ourselves systematically. This is the only way we shall be able to know our good points and how to strengthen them, to know our bad points and how to eradicate them.

When the muse of history shall render her verdict in regard to this Drive, the altruistic people who made it possible will be remembered and immortalized. Were it not for the inspired loyalty and sacrifices of the Catholic of average means the campaign, as indicated by the statistics of the committee, would, no doubt, have been a dismal failure. The children who gave their pennies which represented practically all their pecuniary possessions, the wage-earning fathers of large families, the widowed mother, the humble clerk, the sacrificing clergy—all played their part in contributing to the success of the noble work. Our people, both clergy and laity, are to be thanked most heartily for their boundless munificience, their devotedness to the cause of Catholic education. Pascal, the French savant, declared that “a seed sown in good ground brings forth fruit; so does a principle cast into a good mind.” The Catholics of this community, by their contributions, have recognized that the Aquinas Institute is a sower of seeds, the pupil being the ground, as it were, in which the seeds are sown. Further, they have made possible the erection of a temple of erudition in which will be installed in the minds of Catholic youth the self-evident principle that education without religion is a failure. Leo R. Rauber. twenty-nineTHE AHETE “Oh what’s the cheapest thing on earth?” I asked me, pensive, by my hearth. A spell came o’er the leaping flame, In awe I heard it speak my name. The lambent tongues then made a sage Of august, vast and hoary age. Quoth he, with scorn as cold as ice: “The cheapest thing is free-advice.” Anon I knew my fatal sin Brought on the plight that I was in. So now I’ll loath dispense more rules, And blithely carp at men or fools. The phantom never need come twice— He trammelled quite my wanton vice: No more will so fain advise— I warn you, be yourself as wise. The wisest of the realm was he Who one day stopped the fool in jest— In council for the king, indeed. He far transcended all the rest. The fool, a butt of wiser men. Buffoon and scapegoat of the court. Smirked up askance and bowed him; then As bid, he made a droll retort. “Ho, fool!” in wrath the wise man cried, “Your wheedling jokes grow trite and stale; You are a sorry dolt, say I, For even as a fool you fail!” “A fool delights fools only—troth”— He fawned and cringed with vapid smile. “And that is why your grace is wroth; So let your grace play fool awhile.” “Swounds! Wisdom from a fool I heed!” “Ah, now you flatter me, your grace!” “I will—and make a sage of thee!” This novelty lit up his face. He donned the cap and tried to pun. “Alas, I can’t—or thanks to God! I am no fool, as you are one.” “And I, a sage, am but a fraud! “I’m but a fool—though fool indeed Who knows how scant his learning is: And what I am I wish to be— A fool whose wit at least sees this.” He left the sage, who pondered deep: “Methinks that speech was wiser far Than any ever made by me. We flaunt our wit—what fools we are!” Ihiili T H E A R E T E 5;alt a IDijilc OU have seen a horse-drawn truck, slowly moving up a steep hill. Often, when the declivity is less steep than ordinarily, the driver permits his horses to cease their efforts, meanwhile blocking the wheels to prevent the loss of distance gained by arduous toil. The steeds become rested, and when they must continue their labor, they employ such renewed energy as to draw the wagon to the summit of the hill. We notice that they gained their goal because of their halt for rest, which so enlivened them, and renewed their spirits, that the remainder of the task seemed easy. Why not apply such a principle to life? When you get in an advantageous position, don’t impetuously continue in a mad, unseeing rush for success; hestitate for a while, look about, consider your opportunities, and then, use all your efforts to gain your goal, tenaciously clinging, if necessary, to any even remote aid to a successful end. You’ve seen a base-ball game and you’ve noticed how games are won. The “heavy-hitting” stars do not always come through at the physcholog-ical moment. Often, when a run is needed, it is obtained by sacrifice hits, smart base running, or the employment of some scientific means. When a team reaches a resting place, it halts, the manager judiciously plans the mode of action, and such action is pursued until the end of the game. It is not spectacular playing, but careful thinking which is the great factor in our national game. The game of life should be played in the same way. One should not attempt to achieve success without careful deliberation, but should halt, obtain a clearer view of the desired goal, and slowly but surely pursue an undeviating course to success. Edward P. Doyle. 3 S Cf)t Dictionary If one does not study words because they train the mind, why then should one study them? We study words because they serve a purpose, a valid, genuine purpose. They convey to our listeners the exact meaning, they catch the vision of earth and sky and place them before the eyes; they bring to the mind the objects as we see them; they clearly set before us creatures as they really are or as we would have them imagined and admired. Your listeners will judge your goal only by the result of your spoken word. They neither mark nor care how much toil or time was given to your preparation or whether it was done arduously or easily. One thing they do demand, if you wish to hold a place in their mind: it is that when you speak you do so unhesitatingly and with resolution. Men are often judged by their expressions of thought; by their noble words; herein the portrait of the man himself is formed. We seek through worlds of books, spend all sorts of time, and give a great part of our waking hours to the reading of books with never so much as an effort to look up the meaning of the difficult word. We patiently while away our time roaming through the pages for riches which we have close by us in the dictionary. All of our finest words we can discover there; and there, to our infinite joy, will be found wealth and attainment of power. J. Tangney. thirty-twoTHE ARETE Cfje £ tut p of tfje Classics NVENTION and mechanical progress, conceiving only the materialistic, are producing disputants who disclaim the advantages of the classics. Vocational schools multiply with seemingly no end; tradesmen advise youth to assume apprenticeship; while the business world denounces classical study as profitless. Thus the forces of industry which have advanced so multifariously since the revolution of 1840, are advocating the discontinuance of the study of the standards of literature, as being futile. But the classics are vast treasures of thought, taxing the intellect, and developing the mind. These literary establishments, inspired by influences and operations occurring at the time of their production, and overflowing with their styles of beauty, harmony and richness, infatuate their reader and make him think. No one can deny the intellectual advantage of searching out Virgil’s Aeneid, with its vast wealth of dactylic meter and collocation of words; or the incomparable value of Shakespearean drama, in its deep portrayal of human character. When one analyses a classic, one’s brain is exercised and a variety of thought is presented. The classics press the mind as hard as does Necessity. Literature is also an exponent of the ideal, a help to the realization of the better qualities of life. The classic finds its foundation in the idealism of the author who is actuated by the events of his era. Homer, steeped in patriotism, was inspired by the fall of Troy; Virgil, impressed with the glory and conquest of Rome, wrote to commemorate his race; while Addison in England felt the influence of the Revolution. The reader, admiring the greatness of the classic and the warmth of feeling, naturally yields to an ideal. He acclaims the noble side of life. To-day, great men dream of peace. They are idealistic. They know that through the destruction of the instigators of idealism, namely, religion, literature, painting, sculpture, and music, which are the beauties of a nation, world peace attempts would be useless. Young men should seek a classical education to promote their culture, citizenship and religion. Though we know that much of the English classics is truly Protestant; that the Greek and Roman are pagan, we must not falter in their study, for it is the standard and not the substance, we seek. College courses are for the fortunate. Good literature is everyone’s dowry. Pay no heed to the commercial world, but strive for the ideal, and the opportunities extended for the betterment of mind and morals. Francis X. Cullinan.

McGravv.THE ARETE £lje ixtboUition of tfje JJetos'paper ROM the time of Gutenburg until the present the press has been an important factor in the life and business of the world, and it will doubtless continue to be for a long time to come. At the beginning of journalism all news had to be condensed and as a result only news in the real sense of the w'ord could be included in the paper. Time has changed that. With our modern machinery, thousands of papers can be printed in a short time and hence the newspaper is replete with material that can in no sense be called news or advertisement; it is superfluous. The newspapers of to-day are always the same uniform size and generally the same thickness whether anything worth telling has occurred or not. An article on robbery takes up as much space on one day as one on an earthquake does on another. Whole pages are used to print a few chapters from the worst “best-seller” and departments which explain nothing are found in most journals. Someone observed that we hesitate to throw away an old newspaper for fear it may contain something of real value. This is true. There are, in all papers, articles worth while, but their percentage is small. Few newspapers are noted for their excellent English. It is rather the reverse. Not only do the writers use the same, monotonous sentence structure and careless phraseology; but, in order to make the article impressive or to save time, they make use of slang and in some cases even resort to neologizing, the coining of new words. This is harmful to our language. While the newspaper is in some ways pernicious, it is in other ways most useful. It is, we may say, indispensable. As a means of advertising, of spreading news and propaganda, it is, with the exception of moving-pictures or the radio, both of which it surpasses in vastness of material, the most efficient and far-reaching agent in use to-day. The person who reads a newspaper and selects carefully the articles he peruses certainly develops his mind. There is a great difference between newspapers, and the reader must seek only the important topics discussed in them; he must discriminate, cast aside what is insignificant and scan only the articles that may be useful. The most intelligent reader even loses much time in doing this. If a certain newspaper printed only news and eliminated the society sheet or reduced the sport section or scandal pages, it w'ould soon find itself without any patrons. Tastes vary and the paper endeavors to please many persons of many fancies. Father wants the stock reports; mother, the news section; sister, the society news; the elder brother, the sporting page; and the little children, the comics. If the newspaper cannot satisfy everyone it must please the majority. The people get wrhat they w'ant. When they decide that they wrant honest, unexaggerated news they will get it and then the newspaper will ascend to its highest level of usefulness. Frank Burd. thirty-fiveT H K A R E T E “5;oUj a i oteb m (Camc gtoout” WAS first a massive tree. My home was a dense forest. The tiny squirrels and other small animals, with occasionally a deer wandering by, made up my companions. Man. terrible tales of whom the little squirrels had oft whispered in my ears, I had never seen. The squirrels told me how he struck to the ground such as me, and pulled them to the edge of the forest, where a large, frame house was reached. The little squirrels could go no further than this, and I never wished to hear further, because in my happy life such tales as these were very unwelcome. One day, quite unexpectedly, these terrible men stood before me. They admired my strength and size. Then they went away and I heaved a sigh of relief. But the next day they returned and brought companions with them. The dreadful tales that I had heard became realities. I was treated very harshly, and when at last I fell, making the whole forest ring with my painful cry, they dragged me to the large, frame building of which I had been warned. I was pulled within this building, and sawed and planed till I lost all knowledge of whence I came, and what I once had been. At last I was placed with numerous other fellows very similar to myself on a long train. Then what a journey we had! We passed hamlets and villages, creeks and streams, with here and there a city or a lake. Once we crossed a mighty river. I could see the swirling waters as they dashed southward far below. But even this was soon left far behind. Cities without number were now passed until one day my car was sided into a freight yard of a great city. Here I was lifted from my carriage and once more placed within a building where machinery twirled and bells rang. If you had seen me go into this building, you would never have recognized me as I came out. For then I was very small and white, and just as smooth as polished ivory. I was sent with a hundred other brothers, who had managed to stick close by me, to a printing office. It was here that I overheard a couple of young men asking the printer about a sign. I had been placed on the top of the heap, and so I was the one that he took. He printed across the top of me a word in red. He then took the word, and made each letter of it start another word, which words being five, he placed one below the other, till I was literally covered with print. Then the young men took me and fixed me to a partition in a school-room. For many days, the boys and the young men of the school had to look at me, and thus be reminded of what I said. Then a few months passed when I was almost always alone, and the young men again came to school and gazed at me. It was only the other day, through a new student’s inquiries that I learned for myself who 1 really am. Do you wish to share the secret? Well then, I am the Arete sign that hangs in the English room at Aquinas Institute. Andrew Knauf. thirt ii-xisTHE ARETE Cfje $3nce of Success N preparation for this article I queried several persons— young men—to determine whether they deemed the present time as propitious to success as the Civil War Era of United States History. I was shocked at the unanimous and very emphatic negative replies. No! Of course not— nowadays everybody is getting a good education, and there is too much competition. The odds are a hundred per cent greater. And. though I should not, I pitied these persons. Indeed, the odds are great against them. Recently, from the Efficiency Magazine, I garnered a few rare gems of truth—maxims of success that every aspirant in business, arts, and in other walks of life should cherish. The person who observes these adjurations assures his prosperity. You want success, but are you willing to pay the price for it? How much discouragement can you stand ? How much bruising can you take? How long can you hang on in the face of obstacles? Have you courage to try to do what others have failed to do? Have you the nerve to attempt what the average man would not dream of tackling? Have you the courage and persistence to keep on trying after repeated failures ? Can you go up against scepticism, ridicule and opposition without flinching ? Can you keep your mind steadily on the object you are pursuing, resisting all temptations to divide your attention? Have you the patience to plan all the work you attempt; the energy to wade through masses of detail; the accuracy to overlook no point, however small, in planning and executing? Are you strong on the finish as well as quick at the start? Success is old in the open market. You can buy it. Any man can buy it who is willing to pay the price. These little gems are on my desk before me always, companions to which I have recourse for solace in time of need. They do not allow me to despond. If the fatuous and vacillating individuals who gave me the vehement negations were to read this little catechism, they would denounce it as a bit of the omnipotent “free advice” that is scattered broadcast to scare people, written to fill space in the editorial column. But what could be expected of a person who deems his own chances of success to-day less than those of the pioneer, Abraham Lincoln, who lived when elementary schooling was a luxury, and a weather-beaten volume of biography cost three days of hard labor? Abraham Lincoln’s life is the world’s classic example of success won against odds; so now let us consider whether he followed the admonitions of the little questionnaire. It is a ridiculous platitude to ask whether Lincoln was willing to pay the price of success when he labored at such great cost to secure what advantages of education were available. Buried in the primeval fastness of the wilds of Little Pigeon Creek, in southern Indiana, the boy Lincoln helped his father to erect a little log shack that he called home—a roof over his head, a heap of leaves to sleep on. In the succeeding years the thirty-sevenTHE AHE T E young pioneer used every spare second of his time to advantage, attending a nominal school at wide intervals, and studying by candle light when books might be borrowed—they could not be bought. Later, when his indomitable spirit demanded further advancement, he swung the axe by day to study law by night. The same zealous endeavor characterized the whole of his life. “Can you stand discouragement, and hang on in the face of obstacles? —an equally absurd question to apply to Lincoln. Not one man in a thousand nowadays has to cope with the difficulties and hardships that confronted Lincoln every day of his life. At the age of eighteen, Lincoln was nigh overwhelmed by the receipt of a dollar, a whole dollar, for only a day’s work poling a flat-boat. This bonus was four times the amount of his usual daily stipend. The next items are somewhat the same, from different angles. Incidents to bear them out in the life of Lincoln are so celebrated and numerous as not to need quoting. Could Lincoln counteract opposition, scepticism and ridicule? This is answered by the political career of the great man, when a barrage of narrow-minded prejudice was his predestined fate, and he conquered it; when he incurred the opposition of polished sociologists, economists and secessionists, and allayed it; when a bloody and unnecessary war swept the land, a result of the secession movement, and he quelled it. Of this his biographer speaks in glowing terms: “The greatest man in the world is not the man who accumulates the most money or the most power; it is not the man who takes the most out of life. It is the man who gives the most to life, to the world.” “Success is old in the open market. The man can buy it who is willing to pay the price.” Abraham Lincoln paid the price; at great cost he attained his eminence and glory, and something more. To-day his fame is spread through the world in every quarter of the continents, in every language. Mary S. Andrews has immortalized the giant in her writings. John Drinkwater took England and America by storm with his “Abraham Lincoln”. Lincoln’s life is known to every boy and girl old enough to attend school. He is cherished in the heart of every American. The product of a backwoods cabin lacking the convenience of a stove or other piece of furniture, consider to what heights he has risen! Consider how he moulded the destiny of man. and wiped out the curse of slavery. Ask a man if his chances of success are as good as those of Lincoln. Oh, no! There is so much competition these days! Yet, look at the hundreds of new industries that have arisen, and consider the millions of men, with brains and without, who are needed to carry on these industries. Compare your own petty difficulties with those buffets of fate that assailed Lincoln—and were obviated by him. But no, there is too much competition! Pecuniary gain is not the criterion of true greatness, though this standard is applied to the popular acceptance of the term “success”. The latter, of course, is incidental in many cases and by no means unworthy, though not comparable to the true greatness of Lincoln and Boniface, Washington and Caesar. Whatever your goal, real utility to mankind must not be entirely subordinated to mere pelf. Whether you aspire to be great or merely “successful,” there must be a guiding set of principles, and there are none better than those so aptly expressed by the editor of The Efficiency Magazine. Have confidence in thirty-eightTHE A RETE yourself, not too much; trust your fellow man. Apply the golden rule; stand steadfast before all obstacles; above all, persevere. There is ample room for you in the busy world of to-day. Your own niche is unoccupied—none but you can fill it. Opportunity knocks but once; it is present, in disguise and out, at all times. Because a soda-fountain clerk discovered that ice cream might be encased in a chocolate sheath, he is now a millionaire. Of course, everyone could not have invented radio or the telephone, nor are you exhorted to practice certain questionable get-rich-quick enterprises; but, reflect on the countless ways in which you can make your mark without digressing from your chosen vocation. The qualities of acumen and originality will always bear cultivation, and you will reap copious dividends both in success and in that nobler thing if they are among your virtues. Opportunity lurks at every turning. Seize it. If it escapes, try again. Persevere. But perhaps you are one of those who insist that there is too much competition to-day. It is false! Every conceivable convenience of modern life is at your beck and call. The petty impediments that may confront you are dwarfed beside the gigantic obstacles with which Abraham Lincoln, the pioneer, was beleaguered—and which he overcame. Are you still convinced that the hindrances of the nominal competition are insurmountable? Then you are a vacillating weakling who does not deserve success, who is unworthy to look at the face on the Linclon penny. Lincoln persevered. Remember the price of success and greatness. Fear checks action. Opportunity is everywhere. Seize it! Persevere! $' § § Jfnenbsfjip True friendship is one of the rarest and most valuable of blessings, and without it no man can hope to succeed. It cannot be purchased, but once two men have become friends no other power on earth can destroy their friendship; they alone can dissolve it. A real friend sympathizes with you in sorrow, rejoices with you in victory, advises you in difficulties, restrains you in moments of blindness and anger, and supports you and encourages you in all your undertakings. Friendship is an incentive to success. How many times have men succeeded in the face of all kinds of obstacles, even after they had lost hope in themselves, solely because they had friends who believed in them and knew they could not fail? A real man would rather die in the attempt than disappoint his real friend. When your friend is censured, you defend him; when he is praised, you rejoice as though the eulogy were meant for you; your friend does the same in your case. How false is the statement of Oliver Holmes, that we are apt to use our friends as posts by which to judge our rate of advancement in life! We may use our associates that way; but our friends—never! Besides, our friends do not follow us to success; they accompany us, for friends are usually equal in most things. They like and dislike the same things, talk about the same things, think about the same things, act in the same way, and nearly always agree. If one wishes to do something but is in doubt as to the probable success of the project he asks his friend’s opinion. If they hold the same views the plan is carried out; if they disagree, it is discussed and the wiser course pursued. A man with a friend sees twice as much, hears twice as much, and thinks more than a man without a friend. Frank Burd. thirty-nineT H E .4 R E T ET H E A R E T E — ZVpi WLL Miss THe OLe ScHooL.

Doubtless, he would smile at such a seemingly unnecessary question, and would make a very decided reply, saying he would eat nothing but the best. At the same time, this same epicure is totally unaware that what he considers to be the choicest and most savory of foods is oftentimes, like the “white-washed sepulchre,” the most poisonous and of the greatest detriment to the growth of the body. It is exactly the same with respect to the appreciation of music. The average person prefers jazz, popular tunes, and martial airs to the symphonies, concertos and other famous compositions, just as the most palatable food is relished by the ignorant or as the trash of literature appeals to the minds of the uncultivated. It is a well known fact, that the majority of persons would rather follow a military band with its blowing trumpets, whistling fifes and noisome drums, than spend an hour or more at a symphony concert listening to real music. However, this is not conceding that the works of the famous composers and authors are inferior to the meretricious tunes of the hurdy gurdy or the ephemeral novel of the day. One does not proceed beyond the tempting frostings, the exhilarating rhythm, and the gaudy titles to ascertain the intrinsic nutritious value of his victuals, for body or mind. Because of this deplorable condition, the universe must be taught how to listen to good music, as the nutrition expounders teach what and howto eat. There are three absolute conditions necessary for music: The composer, the performer and the author. Like the legs of a three-legged stool one is as important as the other; and if people are not taught what is best in music and how to appreciate it, the composer and the performer will cease to exist.

Klee. $ ■$ Personality “When you meet a man for the first time and carry away with you a vivid impression of a remark, the tone of his voice, an expression of his countenance and perhaps a memory of a look into his soul, his personality has capitalized itself and won.” This quotation shows the value of personality. Then the question arises, “Does everyone possess personality and, if not, can it be cultivated?” Everyone does not possess personality and it can be cultivated. The value of dress and address in connection with personality cannot be overestimated. The manner of dress should be quiet in order to form a pleasant background for the address and to avoid distracting attention from the address to the dress. As style is a mirror that reflects our personality, it should be adhered to in our clothes. Do not think I mean to adopt every extreme fad that happens along. I mean dress quietly and in good taste. Certainly a well-dressed man or w-oman creates a more favorable impression than the one in slovenly attire. Another important element to be cultivated is enthusiasm. One should learn to throw one’s self into a project heart and soul. Be able to grow enthusiastic with others. Do not be afraid to show your emotion by motions. Others appreciate your enthusiasm. We may say in conclusion that dress, address and enthusiasm are the three great factors of personality and as such they should be carefully cultivated. Roy F. McMahon. forty-twoTHE ARETE ISmgijts of tfje IcUlep OES it not seem queer that the Muses never breathe inspiration to the pen of a poet or prose writer that thus the life and adventures of some kitten may be recounted and extolled? Surely this source of information cannot be devoid of knowledge about these creatures. Perhaps it would look ridiculous to see the name of Milton above or below a poem entitled “Ode to An Expiring Cat.” Nevertheless, the fact remains that cat and printed publicity are about as intimate as Eskimos and lilacs. We are not thrown on this earth promiscuously, as it were, we are here for a purpose; the same holds true for a cat. From the time the big, six-ounce feline opens its eyes until the day he breathes the very last breath of his ninth life, Charles (we will call him this for the sake of distinction) leads a checkered career. During his early youth he bounds about the house twenty-four hours a day. The cook is his most hated enemy, spoiling many a shining pot or pan in her endeavor to end about six of his lives. The only thing that escapes his attention and, incidentally, his teeth or claws, is the chandelier. When Charley reaches a more mature age, he bounds about the streets twenty-four hours a day. Home to him now means just a sure meal. We might venture, perhaps, and say rain will drive him there. After he has emptied three-quarters of the contents of life’s cup, has participated in a number of alley battles and midnight fence concerts. Chuck gradually loses ambition. No longer will he carouse about after twilight; he won’t even defend his own backyard. The remaining days of his life are spent beneath the kitchen range. Occasionally, he will tread to the wood-shed for a meal or to the parlor to curl upon the lap of his kind mistress. His main object at this stage, however, seems to be to make up for all the sleep he lost in early youth. T. Mason. § $ Jfoorball First a signal Then a thud Then your face Is in the mud.

You do, do you not? You used to believe him, too, didn’t you? And didn’t he thrill you? Oh ! What a hero he was! And then you went home and dreamed, dreamed and dreamed of far off lands, of saving pretty girls and of becoming a rich, influential man. surrounded by such intelligent listeners as you thought you were. Weren’t they grand old thoughts though? Such yarners still live, and they are still sought with the same eagerness and encouraged by the same enthusiasm, but, oh my! do the lads of to-day believe them? Indeed not! Stand behind these modern boys while they are listening to one of these yarners and you will see them poking each other. The look on their faces shows that they are undergoing pain to suppress the laughter that they are reserving for a later period. What is the cause of this change in boys? Are the yarners losing their ability to narrate? Are their yarns so fabulous as to be beyond belief, or are the youngsters really more intelligent than we were at the same age? I do not think the yarners are deteriorating either in ability or in imagination; but, I do think the youngsters are possessed of more intelligence. This intelligence is not ancestral either. Their freedom and the action of the outside world is the cause of their higher intellect. The moving picture screen is the powerful yarner of to-day and it has grown to such perfection that deception is hardly ever even thought of. Henry Gillette. “Cfje IMuttmess of Cijose tfjat % n” There comes a time in aging people, and sometimes in those who are not so old, when life holds nothing if it has not memories. Often we see, in institutions for the aged, gray-haired and wrinkled-faced old men and women, and sometimes we hear it said—“What a lonely and dismal life do these poor people live!” But for some life is not dismal and lonely. They live a life of memories. In their old age they relive once, thrice, a hundred times, the things which they have seen and done in their younger years. And for such, these are the happy days of life. But there may be a grain of truth in the statement that some are dismal and lonely. It is hard to conceive how those who cheated themselves of friendship and the beauties of nature in exchange for gold and w'hat they once called “practical things” can now be different. They lived within a shell of false practicalism and now they are too old and too weak to gather the harvest that was once so open to them. Indeed, they have not seen life. They have but looked on it, as one looks at an object in a mirror.

T is proposed by anti-Catholic leaders, by a coterie of otherwise intelligent and broad-minded men, that our educational system be nationalized, that an educational department be established with a secretary at its head who will be a member of the Cabinet. What this would lead to, it is not difficult to conjecture. It would mean that the government, in the end, would dictate the policies and practices of the schools which would, losing all interest in the local and state systems, be subject to a super-intrust or super-individual in the form of a political aristocracy of parasitic office-holders. The recent disclosures relative to the Veterans’ Bureau are indicative of the graft perpetrated by the politicians. If an atheistic or infidel government should assume the reigns of power, the religious schools would become the victims of an intolerable despotism whose avowed object would be to destroy, or at least weaken, religion’s hold on the people. If parochial schools were abolished, then the right of the parent to choose the school his or her child should attend would be automatically denied, and the philosophy, to the effect that the parent, not the state, has the right to dictate as to the place or school that the child should attend, would be ignored. The traditionally American system of education is the private school. As early as 1629, schools for natives were founded in New Mexico and Florida by the Franciscans, fully eight years before the first school was opened in the thirteen eastern colonies. Webster, Washington, McKinley, Roosevelt, and Edward Douglas White were the products of religious schools. Who would question the patriotism of these men, graduates of schools whose efficiency is and must remain unquestioned? Leo R.

Leslie Speigel. forty-nixTHE ARETE Cfjc American Jflag, tfje (Emblem of Jfreebom T is not under the symbol of a tyrannical government or of a Bolshevistic despotism or of a brutal aristocracy that the doctrines of a free nation should be represented. For the tenets that it holds—the liberty which it proclaims— the freedom which it grants—the protection it gives— there is a flag that is the perfect symbol of liberty—the American Flag, the emblem of freedom. To prove this it is not necessary for me to recapitulate our nation’s glorious history; it is not necessary to aggrandize her already magnanimous fame; it is not necessary to exonerate her actions, for her good ones have already been broadcasted, her faults have never been detected. Our ftsrg is the symbolical design of a nation, peaceful, just, and, if need be, brave, but never cruel. It glows with the purity of the nation. In peace it waves with the vivacity of equality, fraternity and impartiality—in war with the irrepressible spirit of justice, democracy, and right. It is tainted by no atrocity, it is flattered only by its own deeds. In Alaska, in France, in many countries, at the North Pole and over the equator it has been raised; but never has it been hauled down. Its meaning requires no interpretation—its glorious meaning is known to all—to friends and to foes. Imperial powers, monarchies, and republics have admitted its glory and in many ways they have attempted to subdue our nation. They have sent soldiers, sometimes better equipped and often better supported, but never braver than ours;—they have endeavored to bribe our men;—they have resorted to unfair methods of warfare;—to vanquish the United States. Better equipped armies—briberies—chicaneries—all have failed and our emblem floats supreme among the symbols of the mightiest nations of the world. When one sees a cross, Christianity with its innumerable and faithful followers, comes to his mind; when he perceives a microscope or other scientific instrument, science with its perplexing problems and incomprehensible theories holds his thoughts; but, when anyone, be he an American or a foreigner, beholds the American Flag, what majestic thoughts, what sublime feelings, what graphic scenes fill his mind! It carries him back to the days of seventy-six, when a few loyal patriots fought against a nation on whose posessions the sun never sets; to 1812 when the still young nation, then independent, again engaged in a struggle with the mightiest power of the time, England, the indomitable mistress of the seas; to 1861 when our nation was temporarily divided—one part struggling for justice, for the meaning of our banner, liberty and equality, the other against the principle of the indissolubility of the Union ; to 1898 when our navy quickly and decisively defeated the feared Spanish Armada; to the time when the Mexicans insulted our colors and were compelled to recant their affronts; to 1919 when Germany, engaging in a successful conflict against nearly twenty-five nations of the world was defeated, subdued, humbled by the United States. But that is not all. The flag does not bring to one’s mind only terrific battles, furious engagements, constant warfare. It recalls days of prosperity and peace, freedom and justice, it foretells even more prosperous ones. It is called by some “a floating piece of poetry,” by the Chinese “the lower flag,” but what appellation is more befitting than “Old Glory?” It means to everyone in the United States and to Americans in foreign countries justice and protection. forty-eiyhtTHE ARETE “And when the wanderer—lonely, friendless— In foreign harbors shall behold That flag unrolled ’Twill be as a friendly hand Stretched out from his native land Filling his heart with memories sweet and endless.” It recalls magnificent edifices where thousands of men and women work joyfully throughout the years; schools, some beautiful, some simple where boys and girls, the future leaders of our country, study and learn; humble cottages and superb residences where men and women, of all races, live in tranquillity and happiness—all under the protection of our flag, all working for the aggrandizement of our flag and the amelioration of our country.

Mother goes about her domestic duties with a hurried air, fearing to lose a moment’s time with her son. Dad stalks and struts about the house in a proud manner as though his boy were already an admiral and not just a plain gob. Little Dot jumps around in a boisterous spirit not only because Bob is back but also because he brought her a parrot in lieu of a present. The evening meal is over. The now complete family gathers in the living room to have a heart to heart talk with their only boy. Bobby is enthusiastic. He waxes eloquent on the subject of seas and ships. His boyish face, alight with ardent earnestness, speaks volumes for his faith in the service. Dot is completely absorbed in trying to feed a piece of dry bread to the parrot, who ignores her with a reproving stare. Father is leaning forward in his chair with a look of both admiration and interest stamped on his face. Mom stands to the side and a little back of her boy, more engrossed in her son than in the subject he is talking about. Such are the parents of the men who go down to the sea in ships. J. W.

Members of the faculty delivered impromptu speeches which were filled with sparkling anecdotes. The entire assemblage joined in the singing of many popular songs, with a harmony delightful.

NE pleasant Sunday morning in the Summer of 1691, the British attacking the Irish village of Athlone met with unexpected success in bridging the last shot-torn arch of Queen Elizabeth’s bridge—the key to the hamlet. The powder-blackened Irish, exhausted by incessant battering and deafening gun-fire, became frustrated at the awful deed. After a baffling pause, the Irish gunners resumed with terrible effects, slaughtering the determined Britons who poured over the causeway; and yet, finally, realizing their shrinking advantage and prospective defeat, if the passageway over the Shannon remained. Grasping the situation at a glance, and with instantaneous action an Irish sergeant, Custume by name, leaped from the breastworks and cried: “Are there ten men here who will die with me for Ireland?” What a valiant response there was, and the intrepid Irishmen succeeded in destroying the dire planking. Sergeant Custume recognized the signal and dared to step from the ranks. What prompted William H. Seward to advocate the purchase of Alaska; after experiencing the ridicule of “Seward’s folly” and “ a place fit only for a polar bear garden?” To-day the result of his step-forwardness nets the United States some five hundred millions per year. Only the men who have been original, who have “done otherwise,” find resting places in some Westminster Abbey or History of the World. They had the power to disregard all critical impediments and blossom forth in their own confidence. Such men as Wright, Ford, Addison and Gutenberg knew what is meant to break from the customs of generations and establish, deaf to ridicule, what they thought advantageous and progressive. You may not acquire perpetuity, but you may, in your own sphere, burst from the ranks and acquire distinction. But what is it that confines men to their narrow position in life? Why can’t everyone be original and leave the trodden path of habit? Simply because some are averse to chaffing; the mildest criticism checks all progress, and they sink again into the rut of “follow the crowd.” They yearn and seek better advancements, but yet, chained by the force of public opinion, they become tremulous to act; and like the galley-slaves of Rome, they work but gain nothing, save the sting of some legionary whip.

CULLINAN. fifty-oneTHE ARETE Hesson in Bebuctton “What do you make of it, Watson?” said Sherlock Holmes, leaning across the supper table and handing me a magazine he had been reading. “What do you deduce from that picture?” I scrutinized the picture. An old woman, gray-haired, her face wrinkled, her lips curved in a sad smile, was putting a violet in the button hole of her husband’s coat. He stood smiling down at her—a very intelligent looking gentleman, apparently rich, but stooped a little from care, though certainly not from age. In his hand he held a high silk hat and a cane and both he and his wife were well dressed. I examined the picture carefully and then placed the book on the table. “The man undoubtedly holds a responsible position and has always been rich,” I remarked, trying to imitate the great detective’s methods. “They are preparing to go to church and it is spring, I gather from the lilies in the background.” “You are scintillating this evening, my dear Watson,” Holmes said, placing the tips of his fingers together and gazing at the ceiling. “It is not only spring; it is Easter Sunday. The man is a person who always gets what he wants, aggressive, has a rare sense of humor—notice the wrinkles about his eyes—optimistic for his hair is not as gray as his wife’s though he must be much older, and he is very intelligent, as you can see from his puckered lids, high forehead, and the proportionate largeness of his head.” “You believe in phrenology?” I demanded, raising my eyebrows. “Ah, indeed! I have written a monograph on the subject: ‘Phrenology in the Light of Facts,’ but you broke my train of thoughts—The gentleman we were discussing was, doubtless, brought up in a family in ordinary circumstances, but was economical, saved his money, made a fortunate investment and became rich. His fortune he used to form a company and was made its chief official. “He perhaps married the woman in the picture while they were both young and poor and they struggled on together, she doing most of the worrying as her sad and wrinkled face clearly shows. He stoops a little, though not more than the ordinary man. If he had been a man of importance for a long time, he would be more dignified. And if he had been used to riches a new suit would be no great attraction. It is not really deduction but it fits the case and if you have a better theory to offer then, pray, expound.” “Marvelous!” I exclaimed. “Commonplace,” he answered lightly. “But, doctor, you have looked at your watch five times in four minutes and, as I suppose your wife is waiting for you, I will bid you ‘good night’.” fifty-UrnTHE AIIETE Caesar in Pallia The shades of eve were gathering fast As by the study hall I passed. As by I straggled, in I looked And beheld a boy poring o’er a book— ’Twas “Caesar in Gallia.” His brow was knit; but still he gazed. From off the book no eye he raised. Though his friends were long since safe at home. He still bent o’er his dog-eared tome. His “Caesar in Gallia.” I mused; I entered and I asked. “Why so intent upon your task?” “Begone!” he quickly answered, “Go. I must stay because I did not know My ‘Caesar in Gallia’.” From my pocket I drew a book well wrapped. And said as him on the shoulder I tapped, “Here is something through which you may like to look. A dependable trot, and a priceless book, ’Tis ‘Caesar in Gallia’.” His countenance with delight beamed o’er. This innocent little sophomore. I am not sure that to him I had done a kind deed But at once he quickly began to read His “Caesar in Gallia.” “You’re a friend in need; you’ve made me glad,” He said, as he seized both pencil and pad. I hurried away. As I passed from sight With speed I espied that sophomore write “Caesar in Gallia.” Frank Burd. $: $• £ The day is sad, indeed, when a man casts aside all forms of self-consciousness and scrupulosity and proclaims that he is master over himself both mentally and physically. We should utter a sigh of thanks upon learning that these days are few and far between, for when a man becomes so infatuated with himself that he gives up all manner of self-education he ceases to have a desire to do something bigger and better, a service for which he was placed in this world. Man must educate himself. Schools, colleges and training courses merely serve as light to ignite the candle of education and learning. The self-educated is the truly educated, for in his category of erudition and learning are facts and truths which have become self evident through lengthy research and well founded deliberation. Look down deep into your soul and determine the extent of your ignorance. As the poet says, “see what thy soul doth wear.” Instead of rich silks and satins one may find his soul covered with beggardly rags of ignorance. R.

When we are parted from our friends they are the things we really miss, and all the gold in the world cannot buy them back. We never seem to understand until we are out there wandering in the strife and turmoil what really makes up the riches of life. Whatever wealth, honor, fame, you may acquire, life only becomes dear in the number and value of your friends. Riches we must have to provide the necessities of life but the value all along is in counting o’er the friends who really count for more.

TANGNEY. fiflll-fourTHE ARETE Zi Jfountam $3en THOUGH a fountain pen is generally called an article that is ever ready for the user, it sometimes becomes a burden and a nuisance to the owner. Of course a fountain pen needs care and. as usual, some neglect to care for their pens—neglect is natural to human nature. It is because of neglect that the pen exasperates its manipulator. When a pen refuses to do its work, it becomes a striker for proper attention and care. If the owner does not meet its demands he must use a scrawly pencil or strikebreaker. Strikebreakers do their work very poorly, which, one must assume, always causes trouble. This is the plot of my narrative. There was once a boy who upon receiving a theme to write, procrastinated until a study period before his class. Calling upon his ever-readv but much ill-used fountain pen, he began his composition. In the throes of a violent expository paragraph, old faithful, responding to ill-usage and neglect, refused to put forth its usual amount of ink. The boy admonished his pen by a vigorous shaking which resulted in a sputtering blot appearing on his exposition. After a careful examination of the sickly pen, the boy attempted to borrow from his neighbor, but received a stern rebuke from the rear of the hall, ordering him to keep quiet or write out ten pages. Realizing that time was flying and that he must have at least a page to present, the strikebreaker was brought forth to do its miserable work. In due time the poorly written sheet was presented to the critical professor. After a thorough examination, with countenance marked by disgust, the professor ordered the careless boy to put in a few hours after school. The boy knew that this command was final and he also knew it w'ould mean the loss of his job after school, with the accustomed explanations to his mother. He thereupon decided he must take his medicine dealt out from a little fountain pen. The moral is: don’t misuse your pen. it’s almost human. F. X.

In them, we sense protection, and we look upon them as heroes. But the work and energy that soldiers have to exert to obtain military perfection is not insignificant. It means constant and daily work, and this work is often tedious and irksome. Yet, in the end, it develops the manhood demanded for army life. Now, just as each country has its militant army, there is a greater army existing throughout the entire world. It contains cavalry, artillerymen, infantry and all the other divisions which go to make up a complete army. This army consists of those who embrace the religious life, and its different branches are the different kinds of religious; some are missionaries, some are teachers, while others pursue their labors among the sick, the aged, the homeless. As army training is vigorously enforced that its various divisions be efficient and intelligent, so, all those aspiring to the religious life must train and study that they may become proficient champions of their cause. They must obey rules and regulations as the soldiers of the army. When in training they must adhere to the commands of their superiors, else they should advance like a mutinous army; some attacking, some retreating, others resting. Indeed, such an army could not long be successful and useful. Moreover, both armies rely on the worth of their individual members. Thus it is necessary that each and every one be proficient in his respective position. The religious army is an army not always recognized, yet it is more effective and more important than any other army in the world.

And when its crop was laden It flew away to its hive. Again, in its home I watched it work; It worked as if for money. It made a comb and in the cells Deposited sweet honey.

Ehman. la, P LA, fiftu- e 'cnTHE ARETE iBible is tfje Ceadjer of all Cimcs HE Bible is a book which, more than any other, has served as a guide and a teacher for mankind. It is a book for the entire globe and contains instruction for the whole world; so long as the world accepts its truths and is led by its wisdom the Bible stands ready to elucidate and instruct; in the fatal advance of erroneous theories and false tenets, it remains steadfast, unaltered—a beacon light to the world which, heeding it not, must surely sail to destruction. Its wisdom has impressed itself upon the peoples of all races. Its influence on the prosperity of nations is in evidence at all times. Not only has the Bible been the most important and widely-read book in all lands; but its influence on the character of the people, on the formation of their laws, on their literature, on their daily life and continuous progress is of inestimable value. The Bible, translated into more languages than any other book, has played an important part in the development of spiritual, moral and intellectual life by the vastness of the territory in which it is known and by the millions of persons it has affected; and among all nations even to-day, no other book, profound or humorous, scholarly or entertaining, sells so well. Of no other single book can it be more truly asserted that the substance has served for so many and diverse books of literature; for histories, for novels, for theological books, for dramas, and for poetry; that all books which serve for instruction are in a large part derived from the teachings of the Bible. Thus the literature of a country has become the literature of the world, the instructor of its inhabitants. Frank Burd. .$ g It occurs in the life of every man, the visualizing of ideals and wishes. These visions often come true. In fact, it is the imagination which places these visions before our mind and gives us some definite ideal to work for. There can be no accomplishment if first there is nothing to accomplish. Sometimes we hear of men who, having no fixed vocation, fall into a good position. They are few and far between and it would be safe to say that these men in some part of their lives saw what was in store for them. They probably had worked slowly and consciously to attain the end. A man cannot stand aside and wish as a child would for some worldly gain and expect that the good in this world is going to run to him. Instead of wishing, it would be better for him to follow his imagination and make definite plans to bring about the actual realization of his air castles. Most men have the ability. If they would only apply this ability to the workings of the imagination there would be more Thomas Edisons and Henry Fords. Men who have accomplished great things, such as building flying machines, must have followed their imaginations and have tried to make the products of their imaginations a reality. There is too much fear in the heart of man. Things which seem impossible are not impossible for most men. What a dreary life the man must live who in no way follows his ideals! Pride in oneself leads to success and it is because the imagination makes us believe we are better than we are that we attempt the most difficult things.

You can match your strength with hers any evening in the year (I mean your solitary strength and not the strength augmented by a brass band or any other similar disturber of nature). You, no doubt, have experienced that peculiar feeling which comes over one about ten thirty and battles strongly till nearly eleven thirty. It matches that mighty weapon of stillness against our weak human reluctance made still weaker by fatigue. When the call comes we invariably try to shun it. We may be avaricious of sleep, especially in the morning, but we will not give in to the nightly call. Usually we defeat ourselves by sitting in the easiest chair with a lively novel. Before long we have collapsed into a shape disgraceful to human nature. At other times we may be cruel enough to ourselves to stand up but with no more success. If we are strong and brave enough to ward off this critical trial we will probably spend some time thinking over the past and planning for the future and then, after little or nothing has been accomplished, go to bed. G. C. Green. 8 S The day was dank and wet with rain As I stood on a dripping street— To venture out I was insane— The water oozled ’round my feet. A damsel struggled through the gust And made to cross the thoroughfare. So surely I, in duty, must Assist the girl with knightly air. And though I’m not a foreward fella, - I sidled up to lend her aid. She fled beneath my good umbrella; The whys and wherefores then I said: “You’re wise, my girl, you do not spurn me. I pray you, let me have your hand; And together we’ll tread this sodden journey Until wre find some better land.” And though I nowr am four-score three, I still recall, while rain was floodin’, The quaint reply that puzzled me— “Oh sir! This is so very sudden!” sixtyTHE AHETE Success anb happiness Can Ik Jfounb tn Cbcrp Community To be content with what one has is the secret of happiness. True, a man without ambition is not to be admired, but ambition without patience is an effective means for self destruction. Thomas Chatterton was ambitious and if he had had patience he would, doubtless, be to-day one of the greatest of English poets. But, because he did not succeed fast enough, he despaired and, before he was eighteen years of age, committed suicide. All believe that success lies a certain number of miles to the north or south, to the east or west. Girls go to California to seek their fortunes; men come to New York from the Pacific Coast States for the same reason. Young men leave the farm and hasten to the city, aroused by stories of untold wealth to be found there. Artists, authors and poets travel to the country to find inspiration amid the beauties of nature. A man to achieve success need not travel across the earth with all his belongings; he must travel upward with his intellect only. The difference between the success and the failure depends, not upon the geographical position of his body, but upon the altitude or level of his intellect. We hear much about the effect of environment on the happiness of an individual, but after one’s character has been formed, and if it be well formed, as it should be, surroundings cease to be important. Bunyan wrote half of “Pilgrim’s Progress” in prison, as did Cervantes, “Don Quixote”. Poe wrote while his wife lay dying and he, himself, was in precarious circumstances. Dante wrote his “Divine Comedy” while in exile. Physical deformities or ill health need not prove a hindrance to success; indeed, in many cases it has been advantageous. Pope and Scott were cripples, Homer and Milton were blind; Dostoevsky was subject to epilepsy, yet each of these carved his name in the hall of fame. But fame is not success, nor is it happiness, to all. Many think fame the height of ambition. They fain would be celebrated throughout the world, talked about and lionized. Others think happiness means perpetual idleness, while some a few books and a garret in which to read would satisfy thoroughly. The longings of others cannot be satisfied regardless of the affluence of their money or the dignity of their positions.

What a boundless meaning in that word! What a depth of love the sound itself pro-claims! What a story does it tell of joy and sorrow! Mother! She who is the living example of virtue and sacrifice. She who is the very embodiment of love. She who stands for all that is great and good and noble in life. She who above all others represents God and the things of God. All ages of the world have proclaimed the tenderness, the dignity, the grandeur, the everlasting and divine significance of motherhood. A universal tribute has been paid to her by all nations and all peoples. Every generation has revered her influence and venerated her memory. Her noble devotion and service are recognized by the great and famous as well as by the poor and lowly. Great men the world over have solemnly testified to the debt of gratitude that they owe to their mother. Abraham Lincoln, one of the truly remarkable characters of this country’s history, said once in words which alone would establish his fame—“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel moth,er.” This sentiment, if not voiced, is at least felt, by everybody. Each one of us is certain that his mother is the greatest in the whole wide world, an angel upon earth. Motherhood excercises the most intimate and powerful influence known among men. Some of the greatest saints were the children of saintly mothers. The great St. Bernard was the child of a mother so holy that virtue, inculcated by her example, became almost second nature to him. St. Louis of France found in his mother Blanche a holy model. Her words, spoken to him in his youth, “I had rather see you dead at my feet than guilty of mortal sin,” were engraved on his heart throughout his entire life. The conversion of St. Augustine was the fruit of St. Monica’s prayers and tears. By a life of prayer and patience, she won her gifted son from unbelief and sensuality to that faith and self-consecration which made him a burning, shining light to all ages of the Church and of the world. See how soon, and to what a degree, a mother’s influence begins its blessed service. Her first ministration for her infant is to enter, as it were, the valley of the shadowr of death, and w-in its life at the peril of her own. How different from all other love is the affection thus founded! It is an affection which surpasses human deed and w'ord and thought. It pours itself forth like the sunlight, ever spending and ever unspent. It is the warmest and tenderest flame that can enkindle the human heart, and the most inspiring sentiment that one human being can arouse in another. Nothing on earth approaches so near to the divine. Even the little infant partly realizes how much he owes to this beautiful feeling. In pain, in sickness and distress, he always finds the mother by his side, anxious to soothe and comfort him. Think what it means to the child to have in those years a friend so near and dear! Without a mother’s tender care, it w'ould surely wilt and die, for many a summer’s sun must glow and lighten up the xixty-threcTHE A RET E skies before its tender limbs can grow to size and strength. Throughout these years it is the mother who supplies each little want and need. The loving care of the mother increases with the growth of her child. Day by day the dawning soul looks from those young eyes with a cleaner, steadier ray; and, day by day, the mother’s work assumes more of an aspect divine. For, having nursed the child throughout the years of his infancy, she now devotes herself to fostering his spiritual growth. She trains his eye to look to heaven and his voice to lisp a prayer. She guides his feet in ways of truth and right, instructs his mind with heavenly love; and teaches his soul to yearn after God. The work of the mother is of momentous significance to the human race and to the cause of Christ; for she it is who holds the key to the soul. She it is who inspires virtue, fashions genius, and forms the soul for good. She it is who teaches the child obedience, truthfulness, self-restraint, and piety. She it is who stamps the coin of character. Rightly, then, may we say with the poet—“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.’’ The unselfish devotion of the mother finds its reward in the love and respect of her children. And in their respect and recognition of her devoted affection lies the secret of her influence. They recognize instinctively the claim she has upon them, and her word they do not dream of doubting. They freely trust in her wisdom and experience, and willingly obey her command. The observance of the mother’s precept is made easier by the affection which unites them with her who imposes it. That is why the family is the true school of morality and that is why the good mother is so essential to the Christian family in the world to-day. The instruction received at the mother’s knee, her sweet and pious lessons, and the influence of her example, are never effaced from the soul. Her virtue and genius make an indelible impression on the minds and lives of her children, for youth is like wax in receiving impressions and like steel in retaining them. On those early lessons begun in the cradle and continued in the home, success in this life, and salvation in the life to come, mainly depend. Truly, therefore, do we hold the mother’s work to be one of vast significance to the nation and to the Church. A nation will be very much what its homes are. Home life makes national life. Patriotism must begin at the fireside. Where the home is in honor, you will find a vigorous and patriotic people. It is the same also with religion. The Church is nowhere more flourishing than where the home is respected. For welfare both here and hereafter, much depends on the home. Modern life is making dreadful breaches in it. Church and state are threatened by this assault, for the home is the very heart of both. It is, therefore, with reason that the Church has ever declared divorce to be fatal to the truest interests of a nation. Where divorce is frequent, family life in its higher form disappears, and with it perishes the foundation of a nation’s morality. The mother is a continual inspiration in the Christian family. By her example she teaches her children and their father to live in this world but not for it. Revered and venerated for her tender sympathy and gentle kindess, her life is a mighty power in molding theirs. They are cheered on and inspired by her years of sacrifice and toil; and the rough places on their journey to eternity are smoothed over by the comfort her love brings to them. While she lives, there is a place that they feel is home. There is a place where they are always welcome, a place where they are met with a smile, one place where they are sure of a friend. Honors may be denied them. Friends may prove false. The world may be indifferent to them. They may be unsuccessful in their studies or their business. They may be disappointed by seeing a rival outstrip them and bear away the prize they sought. But there is one place where no feelings of rivalry are found, and sixt u-fourTHE ARETE where those whom the world may have overlooked are sure of a friendly greeting. Whether pale and worn by care and sickness, or flushed with health and flattering success, there is always one that is affected by their reverses; always one that rejoices in their success; always one that understands ; always one to soothe and comfort; always one to love,—the mother. No language can express the power, the beauty, the heroism and the majesty of a mother’s love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over the wastes of worldly fortune sends the radiance of quenchless fidelity like a star in heaven. Youth fades, love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; a mother’s secret hope outlives them all. The love of a mother is never exhausted, it never changes, it never tires. A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies. But a mother’s love endures through all; in good repute, in bad repute, in the face of the world’s condemnation, a mother still loves on; still hopes and prays that her child may return from the world and sin to the home and virtue. Still she remembers the infant smiles that once filled her bosom with rapture, the merry laugh, the joyful shout of his childhood, the opening promise of his youth; and she can never be brought to think him all unworthy. Children, appreciate your mother. Sons and daughters, venerate and respect her as a treasure lent you by heaven. Revere her, obey her, and love her as the greatest earthly gift God has given you. You are rich beyond words’ description in that inexpressible love and care which she lavishes upon you. Cherish her as she does you. O that you mothers might realize the mighty place you occupy in this world! O that you might ever fulfill the duties of your sacred office! You are the safeguard of the nation, the inspiration of mankind, the pledge and instrument of our future happiness. The father of the family toils and provides and governs under your gracious inspiration. Your children come into the world, grow, and work out their destiny under your gentle influence. Let not the false doctrines and wordly aims of modern society take you away from your God-given place in the home. There lies your work. Let not the idle vagaries of the earthly-minded lure you from it. Yours is a great responsibility, yours a noble service, yours a lasting spiritual work. Does the thought dismay you? Does the flower of your sweetness seem too difficult to nurture in the harsh winds and storms of this world? Then go to the Lily of Israel, the Mother of Nazareth. Your model is Mary. She was first of all intent upon the things of God. So must you be. She w'as humble, gentle, womanly, unselfish, and noble. Let her be your guide. She was the joy and the inspiration of that happy home of Nazareth. Let her be your inspiration. Learn from her the lesson of sacrifice, of purity, of piety, of love. Live and love as she did and you, like her, will be called “blessed among women.” Mother, O Mother, we are kneeling before thee. World-weary sinners with grief-stricken hearts! Love is enough—give us love we implore thee— Love and the wisdom that pure love imparts. Lift up thy hands when temptation is raging; Pity our weakness and pray for thy sons; Be at our side in the strife we are waging; Comfort and guard us till the crown has been won. Teach us the lesson that time cannot teach us— Tell us the secret of heavenly lore; Show us a haven where sin may not reach us; Guide us at last to eternity’s shore. Walter Miller, ’22. xi.rt il-fiveT H K A li K r E Jfrom Hin Alumnus HE history of our American Republic is a living record of the important part played by men of the legal profession in our national life. During the formative period of the nation, lawyers were most instrumental in making, administering and enforcing the laws which were the binding forces of the infant Republic and which became, in later years, the guide posts of American legislation. Down through the years, the disciples of Blackstone have given signal service in the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches of our government. In this present day the profession seeks men to carry on this noble heritage; men of ideals and principle; honest men; courageous men; men with vision, understanding and common sense. Such men are needed in the legislatures, on the bench and in the law offices. The threat of growing lawlessness and anarchy must be answered and defied. Men are needed who will see to it that American ideals and American institutions are preserved ; that legislation is based upon common sense and human experience. It is well known that salutary laws produce peace and order, while unjust and unwise laws breed dissatisfaction and disrespect for all law. Therefore the national need of honest, learned, level-headed lawyers, legislators and judges. The relation of lawyer and client is one of great trust and confidence. The client intrusts his property to the lawyer; he confides his sacred secrets to him; he seeks to have his wrongs righted and his differences adjusted. It is because of this fiduciary relationship; because of the countless opportunities presented to the lawyer to do wrong that the thoughtless condemn the profession, when one of its members succumbs to temptation and betrays his trust. The law is a congenial profession, affording abundant compensation to those who follow it. The lawyer daily associates with cultured, accomplished, sociable men. Of necessity, he is a student of current events. He must frequently acquire a working knowledge of subjects foreign to the law itself. He is never bored by the tedium of monotony; each day bringing forth new problems in human and business affairs; new opportunities to perform some act of generosity and service. It is this idea of service, of work well done that is the real recompense of the legal profession. It is this that puts the stamp of professional character upon the lawyer’s work and gives a sense of satisfaction that truly transcends in importance any monetary reward. sixty-nixTHE ARETE xixty-xerenTHE ARETE 1923=« Dur Cljampions— 1924 Twenty-three victories in twenty-five games—wins from all the leading high school teams from Lake Erie to the Hudson River—a New York record for consecutive victories—the establishment of a world’s record at the National Catholic High School tournament in Chicago—briefly outlines the success of the Aquinas Institute basketball team for the season just closed. It is a record of which every Aquinas student can justly be proud, and the work of the members of the team will go down as the best ever achieved by a Rochester Catholic High School athletic team. The first seventeen games of the season were victories. No other major High school team in the State can boast such a string of consecutive successes. East Rochester High, Phelps High, Ithaca High, Auburn High, C. R. A. of Syracuse, Canisius Prep., of Buffalo, twice, Niagara Prep. Assumption Academy, of Utica, La Salle High, of Troy, and Masten Park High, of Buffalo, were among the teams to fall before the prowess of Aquinas, before the winning streak was broken at Syracuse by C. B. A. in the return game. Then—not another loss until the third round of the tournament games at Chicago, when De La Salle Institute, of Kansas City. Mo., eliminated us, 22 to 15. The remarkable feat of Aquinas in defeating Cathedral High, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, by a 30 to 0 score, at the Chicago tournament, is a world’s record that is apt to stand for some years to come. Shutting out a team under any condition is an extraordinary performance, but to do if during the progress of a National Tournament is little short of marvelous. It made Rochester Aquinas known from the Atlantic to the Pacific, for the Associated Press flashed news of the record to practically every newspaper in the United States. The feature of the world’s record game was the fact that our team committed but six fouls in turning the trick. Furthermore, all nine members of the team took part in the contest and therefore the credit is due all. Following the Sioux Falls game, we defeated University High, of Detroit, Mich., 16 to 6. Two games in the same day proved too much, however, for La Salle, of Kansas City, a bigger and heavier team of players, won from us that night. La Salle had beaten Kansas City High, Kansas, winners of the national public school title at Chicago, 40 to 18. It was a splendid team. The praises of Aquinas have been sung by the Rochester press, which gave us columns of space during the season; therefore, further comment upon the team is unnecessary. We feel indebted to others besides the Sporting Editors of the Times-Union, the Democrat Chronicle, the Journal and Post Express, and the Rochester Herald, and take this opportunity to express our appreciation of the much needed co-operation the team received. Manager Hubert Oberlies, first of all, handled his duties well. He was forced to step into the shoes of a preceding manager who had been a big success, Harry Middaugh, and Oberlies now vies with Harry for accomplishing the best results. Like Middaugh’s season, Oberlies’ was a financial success. “Hub” was popular with the players and with the fans, and we are sorry that managers cannot succeed themselves. Oberlies, however, will be graduated in June, and we wish him every success at college. To Jack Connelly, chief of the ushers at our games, and Charley Michaels, who did many odd jobs, do the team and student body extend their thanks. Connelly and Michaels took over the responsibility of the Hixty-eightTHE ARETETHE ARETE hall, and worked hard in arranging the court to satisfactorily accommodate our crowds. Frank Cullinan, Bert Ehman, and William Frank successfully executed the selling of tickets and the cashing up of the finances. Bob Hill, Jim Cashman, William Reid, Herb Growney, Frank Phillipone, Leo Keating, and George Poirier, in the capacity of ushers, are to be commended for the very necessary work which they carried out. Last of all but not least, the cheer-leaders, John “Heinie” Moynihan and Frank Edelman were ideal. They got the most out of the crowds that occupied our bleachers, and their efforts were rewarded several times during the season when newspaper accounts of our games contained the flattering news that the spirit of the student body could hardly be surpassed anywhere. “Heinie” and Frank can be classed as two of the best cheerleaders Aquinas has ever had. It would hardly be proper to extend compliments to anyone without praising the Rochester Central basketball team for its generosity in playing us an exhibition game and allowing us to keep the total gate receipts in order that we might make the trip to the Chicago tournament. Every Central player, ten in all, responded, and each took part in the game. Aquinas will never forget the Centrals for the good deed. It is just one more feather in the cap of the Centrals for the good that team has done for basketball in Rochester during the last half dozen years.

Captain Bill O’Reilly was put under faculty ban for three weeks, while Dunn reverted back to the first team, which also added Johnnie O’Reilly to its roster for six games. Despite these handicaps the Reserves won two games from the Mohawks, two from the Orions, one each from the Mt. Carmel Monitors, the St. Andrew quint, and other good teams.

The team, composed of our sophomores, under the leadership of Manager Tom Marks and Captain Franklyn Spiegel, won fourteen games, lost two, and tied one. Each loss was by the slim margin of one point, and the Minims registered victories over both quints which beat them, the Canisius Prep Reserves, and the Nina Reserves. The Minims hung up a nice record of ten consecutive victories, and for a time rivaled the first team for successive wins. There are one or two future first team greats among the Minims, and it seems a foregone conclusion that next year our Reserve team will have many of the youngsters on its roster. Captain Spiegel, forward, was high scorer of the team, and Tom Marks, guard, finished second. In the opinion of the writer, Marks showed that he possesses possibilities. He made the most rapid progress of the Minim players, and before he is graduated may take his place alongside the big field of stars which has been developed at Aquinas. Gerald Callaghan, after spending several weeks with the first team, showed the benefit of the experiences gained with the older players, and bolstered up the Minims greatly upon joining them. Gerald and Tommy Conley were tied for third honors among the individual scorers. Jack Doyle and Franklyn Spiegel were the only ones to participate in every game.

The news had reached school that the team had established a world’s record at the National Catholic High School tournament, held in Chicago, by white-washing the Cathedral High School basketball team of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, 30 to 0, the first time in the history of the court game that a shut-out had been recorded in tournament play. The students broke loose from the class-rooms at the wonderful feat of the team, and throughout the down-town section there were snake dances and parades, noise, and hysteria. The A - Q - U -1 yell resounded from every corner—traffic became blocked at street inter-sections—the celebration lasted for hours. It was Aquinas Day in Rochester, and no one interfered with our boys. Rochester was back of the team, and was glad that those here at home were able to give such a demonstration to the players whose remarkable achievement had been sent by the Associated Press to every newspaper in the United States. The above picture portrays the joyful countenances of Aquinas students over the world’s record newrs. (Concluded from page seventy-four) use during the tournament. I surely was a happy ball. I was passed and shot about by the team during that tourney w’ith incredible swiftness; I wras shot at the basket numerous times but I always waited until my own team shot me before I went through the net. Of course, I went through sometimes for the other teams;—why be mean? My team had entered the final game of the tournament and I was the ball in use during the game. Oh! w'hat treatment I received; passed, dribbled, steved and shot about! I had to go out to the spectators for a rest sometimes. The game was in the final minute and I had gone through the basket enough times to give the team opposing mine a one point lead. It was during this minute I was passed to the left forward of my team who shot me at the basket with accurate aim. I entered the basket. I got half way through and bounded out again! A few seconds later the final whistle blew! My team had lost! I had failed them in the trying moment! I am no longer in use; I am laid away. Next season another wdll take my place. I am not discouraged. I did my best. Thomas E.

Froude calls it a “sense of responsibility to the power that made us;” Compte terms it the “worship of humanityHuxley says it is a “reverence and love for the ethical ideal, and the desire to realize that ideal in life.” Speaking of religion in general, even these definitions are not satisfactory. Religion is more than a mere “sense of responsibility”; it is a duty more incumbent than any other; it is a duty that must be fulfilled every day, every month and every year after one has attained the use of reason, and no man can dispense with it without neglecting his duty. Religion is more than the “worship of humanity.” Many persons have lived in seclusion, caring nothing for the world, and yet many of these were very religious. What, then, is religion? A man who accepts the trials and tribulations of the world uncomplainingly, bears his cross without decrying the wisdom of God, endeavors to pursue the dictates of his conscience and strives always to do what is right, may be said to be religious. Men have always realized their own dependency on some powerful being. Those who did not think of a single. Omnipotent Being as their god fashioned for themselves idols of clay or wood and worshipped them. We can be thankful that, while all are not Catholics, most of the people have at least some kind of religion. There are in this country approximately one hundred and fifty religious sects, yet what a country this would be if there were no religion here at all! The greatest atheist that the world has known once said that he would hate to live in a world of atheists. Coming even from such a person that statement contains much wisdom, and we should be glad there is as much religion in the country as there is.

Do we often hear one classify his reading among the sports in which he participates? Everyone knows, or can easily learn that sport is a word which sign lies diversion or amusement. Now I ask, for what reason do all happy mortals read? Surely they are not constantly reading for education alone. But they are constantly reading and they will claim very little of their reading matter has a special tendency to amuse. They are reading for diversion. The solution is simple yet it is authoritative. One writer says that a man reads either to find or to lose himself and nine times out of ten I am sure one’s reading falls under the latter division. He craves diversion, something which will take him away from his monster self. That is also one of the reasons why he plays baseball or football. “Yes!” our opponent will say, “but this is taking the peanut and leaving the elephant.” Not so it seems to us, however. Since he claims the big issue of playing baseball or any game is to exercise the body, we are introduced to very favorable grounds on which to base our arguments. No doubt, athletics do exercise the body, but does not reading exercise the mind by provoking thought? If exercise is necessary for the betterment of our physical condition, will inactivity strengthen our mental powers? No; we read that we may live in the realms of thought. Without being a miracle man one may live a life-time in a foreign country in the character of bandit or prince while reading one of Sabatini’s blood curdling stories. Not in reality, but in the imagination does this take place. One may even become a citizen of Athens by reading the Odyssey or the Iliad. If we read live literature correctly, our blood should tingle and our frame vibrate with emotion as we witness the horror of murder or the pangs of a lover. G. C.

This bane, the doctors inform us, is the result of a savage’s appetite amid civilized surroundings, or, from too much rich food with too little exercise. A hearty appetite, however, is no dangerous affliction if accompanied by a corresponding plenty of physical exertion. It is only the combination of these two .pernicious influences, over-eating and insufficient exercise, that produces obesity, and, incidentally, fosters bodily debility and senility. Therefore, both evils are obviated by the elimination of the one—lack of physical exercise. The motion-picture house, gladitorial combats, operas, and the legitimate stage, are established institutions of recreation, and all receive their quota of the public amusement-seekers, together with their dollars. The only possible exercise afforded by those media is mental. People, in this age of mechanical convenience, walk scarcely a mile in a week, and are spared every possible exertion. To counteract this baneful condition of affairs, recreational hours would be well spent in calisthenics of some sort. But no, the movie-houses and their sister establishments are the retreat of the tired and overworked public. Then, some new institutions of recreation must be organized to promote the common physical welfare. Rather, those now in existence must be better patronized, and, if need be, others established. Of course, there is a wiser element in every community which has recourse to bowling halls, the gymnasiums of fraternal organizations, and the like. But there is something that far surpasses these, both in minimum cost, capacity, and beneficial results. This is the municipal institution. The half-dozen public skating rinks of Rochester, which are frequented by a creditable number of people, are a fair example of what the city can do for itself. Municipal bathing beaches, gymnasiums, and the like, must be offered to the public in greater number, and far more of the public should patronize them. This I see to be the best antidote for that curse that is making men of inferior physical power, exercise in the open air. Gerald F. Otto. Let us consider how dissimilarly the invalid and the healthy man are influenced by the books of literature, light or serious, which they read. Words and sentences which to the healthy man are but mere parts of the whole entertaining narrative, neither more instructive nor more interesting than hundreds of other popular books, but which help him to pass the time quickly, which free his mind from the troublesome problems which confront him, and which he wishes to forget, at length become fully appreciated, when his health breaks down, and he becomes a man deserted or seldom visited by his friends. They impress him, as he never before imagined they would, with their steady and indestructible friendship and sympathy. He, at last, comprehends how it is that the lines, the result of efforts, or the result of much excogitation, have power to alleviate suffering and to extend condolence, with a sincere impressiveness which only the invalid, in his sorrow, can rightly understand. This is undoubtedly the reason why Shelley, Keats, Pope and Milton wrote so well, for, being invalids, they were inveterate readers and drank deep of the waters of the “Pierian Spring." Frank Burd. eif hly-eii hlTHE ARETE A man who peruses a dictionary extensively will, in the course of his observations and discoveries, acquire accuracy. Words used correctly imply but one exact meaning, and are rarely equivalent, although some words seem coincidental. Hence it demands minute exactness in the use of the dictionary, if one would seek the true meaning of a word. A slovenly reader might consider synonyms identical; this would surely be inaccuracy, but a careful reader will become a fair synonymist, will syllabify his spelling, and will know the derivation and pronunciation of his words. This all requires preciseness in thought and observation. When a student seeks aid from his dictionary, he finds in looking-up a word, a group of meanings. usually two methods of utterance, several synonyms and antonyms, besides the derivation; thereupon he must employ selection and accuracy to obtain a concise idea of the word for retention. No one can over-estimate the value of accuracy, which is the very basis of perfection and, with concentration, a secret of success. Any literary classic must be accurate, both in the collocation of words, in rhetoric, and in thought. The business world stipulates that the inaccurate man cannot endure long with competition. Musicians, dramatists and artists, especially etchers, recognize the value of accuracy in their playing, acting and drawing; they know how much destruction an inaccurate thought can produce. If familiarity with the dictionary soon develops accuracy, and accuracy is a vital asset in life, why not use the dictionary on a larger scale? Dictionary study should be encouraged in the grammar grades, demanded of high school students, and expected of college men; being such an aid to preciseness it should find itself in every day use in family life. Although English courses seem to be extensive, they sorely neglect the dictionary. Colloquialisms and slang seem to the ignorant to be the sole means of expression, thereupon any further attempt toward improvement upon their part is frustrated and the dictionary is forgotten. F. X. CULLINAN. ♦ ♦ ♦ In Virginia a young Indian boy strayed and lost himself in one of the large forests. The child had been reared amid a cilivized environment, and had forfeited his heritage from his primeval forbears—a knowledge of woodcraft. In consequence, he was unable to extricate himself, and wandered about for a day even at a loss for means of self-preservation. Searching parties availed no results, so that starvation, in two more days, faced the little civilized savage in painful reality. But, however sophisticated by civilization, every child numbers the toy bow-and-arrow among objects familiar to him. With a battered knife, a few withes, a hickory stick, and such crude materials as were at hand, the young Indian fashioned a creditable bow and a few shafts. This prototype of the modern plaything was an efficient weapon, that supplied the primitive children of the wolderness with the fruits of the chase, and protected them against enemies. The product of the Indian lad’s ingenuity was, though a poor substitute, more practical than a mere toy. With it he succeeded in bagging a few cottontails, enough to subsist on. A wook later a searching party recovered the boy, who was none the worse for his experience, and who had learned many things therefrom. This, a concrete illustration of the potential utility of knowledge at a crisis, is analogous to the benefit that a man, pressed by circumstances, may derive from the practical understanding of a trade.

That thorough cleanliness, that taste in selection and location of homelike furniture, that feeling of co-operation and love, which pervades an orderly abode, is but an exponent of the people who inhabit it. Biologists teach that we must sow our seeds at regular intervals if we wish to harvest an orderly crop. Likewise, if confused masses strike the senses, most assuredly, our minds will be molded into chaos. Just so, the man who promotes and exercises deportment in his homelife, will receive for his extended efforts, a strength of mind which evolves from order. The home is really the most essential factor in developing a firm understanding, much the same as the soil and sun which raise the acorn sprout to the massive position it can hold for centuries. F. X. CULLINAN. Since man’s reading discloses his identity, likewise, the companionship which he entertains marks his status in life. Those confidential acquaintances, those friends in work, study, and pleasure; those chosen ones with whom he is so mutual and liberal are truly the governors of his actions. Goldsmith can attribute his immortality to the association with such a literary group as the Boswell-Johnson club. In like manner, the evil man is the yield of a corrupt confederacy. His actions reflect the influence of bad company, which leads him downward into the depths of iniquity. Man’s tastes and inclinations actuate him to seek friendship, which, when chosen, may either rebel or coincide with his character, and, if rebellious, will soon pervert his morals; but if coincidental, will uplift. It is much the same as it is with the good apple cast among decayed remnants of the same fruit. Fermentation setting in will soon pollute and decompose it. F. X. CULLINAN. How different are the views of the present student and those of the graduate concerning the important subject of w-ork in school! -Subjects w'hich to the former are but inevitable means of acquiring a sufficient number of points to gain a diploma and to graduate, which in reality is a motive of secondary importance in educational pursuits w hen compared to the real motive which most students do not consider, become to the graduate very important stones in the wall of knowledge which he is trying to construct or in the foundation on w'hich he hopes to build his success. After graduating and taking his place in the w'orld, the man w'ho has wasted his time while he was at school more fully appreciates the value of the education which he, through his own neglect failed to acquire; and he knows, too, that the students of the present are neglecting the same studies, much to the detriment of their own lives, their characters and their future.

He can’t talk or walk, but he bosses the house And when he’s asleep I must act like a mouse; But really he wouldn’t be half bad at all If he didn’t bust up all my games of baseball. Every time that the lads are prepared for a game, It’s no matter when, it’s always the same; My mother decides it is just about time That I entertain this kid brother of mine. Edward A.

Y.THE ARETE WORDS OF THE WISE MEN Those who know how to save, first learned how to spend. Wit without wisdom is a dangerous weapon. Money would go farther if it did not travel so fast. Duty done is the foundation of pleasure as well as the right to take it. Always put off till to-morrow the unkind act you would like to do to-day. Those who act with discretion are sure of a good part in the drama of life. Friendships are the rewards of life. Bad writing may be a sign of genius, but not of wisdom. Freedom consists not in the absence of law, but in the operation of good law. The wise man gathers wisdom from all men. What’s done we partly may compute, but know not what’s resisted. It is the heart which is the spring and fountain of all eloquence. The happiest people on earth are those who are busiest in taking care of the happiness and welfare of others. Charles Michaels: “They say radio has made a great hit in Brazil.” Ed. Murphy: “Good prospects for a large crop of Brazil nuts.” Goodness does not more certainly make men happy than happiness makes them good. Do not worry; eat three square meals a day; say your prayers; be courteous to your creditors: keep your digestion good; exercise, go slow and easy. Maybe there are other things your special case requires to make you happy, but, my friend, these I reckon will give you a good lift. Every tear of sorrow sown by the righteous springs up a pearl. Of all the joys we can bring into our own lives there is none so joyous as that which comes to us as the result of caring for others and brightening sad lives. Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many; not on your past misfortunes, of which ail men have some. Dickens. The man who cannot laugh is fit for treason, stratagems, and spoils. A FRUITFUL CROP Whatever is to make us better and happy God ly before us or close to us. Landor. has placed either open Seneca.
