It is characteristic oi year books, in our school as in other schools, that
they pass by the work ot the classroom, the laboratory, and the shop and deal
with the lighter side ot school life-the clubs, the athletics, and the good times
that we have together.
Perhaps second thought will assure us that this is not a fault: that the
tendency is not only natural but desirable. It is in these activities and in the
friendship that we gain from them that we get the happiest and most spon-
School is a training ground for life, and in these activities we are learning
the cooperation and the friendiness that are so essential in our homes, our
communities, and our nations, that are so sadly needed in the world at large
Arms Academy has always been knovmm as a friendly school. New pupils
and new teachers notice it at once, and when we leave we carry with us the
memory of these intangible yet all-essential qualities, sharing with others work
and fun and what few troubles we have. If we will put this into practice after
graduation, we shall be doing our part to make this world ot ours a happier
place in which to live.

lt is the aim of every yearbook staff to produce a better book than has ever been made
before. While such an ideal is impossible of perfect attainment, yet we believe that it is
only with such a goal in view that the high standard of our predecessors can be maintained.
We should like to call your attention to several features of the 1939 book. The pictures
of the seniors, for instance. are of more generous proportions than formerly. Dramatics hold,
and have held, such an important part in our school life that they seem to us worthy of a
special section. We regret that the extemporaneous speaking contest. held this year for
the first time, did not take place early enough to be included in this section. The literature
section has been given special attention with the idea of showing you that there is a con-
siderable number of students in Arms who not only have something to say but also the
ability to say it rather well. The features section is our answer to an insistent demand on
the part of the student body for something in lighter vein. We believe that the news of
recent graduates, and others not so recent. to be gleaned from the alumni section, will
prove of interest to the increasing number of townspeople and friends who are our regular
patrons. We were unable to continue the admirable practice of printing the graduation
pictures of the fifty-year class. because the most careful search failed to reveal the slightest
trace of their pictures. We are glad. however, that our successors can resume the practice.
if they wish, as our search did reveal pictures of several classes immediately following
the class of 1989. The line drawings by our art editors add much. we think. to the attrac-
tiveness of this book. May we ask that you notice particularly the space subscribed to by
our advertisers, without whose generous cooperation we could have no yearbook at all.
Then, too. in addition to our regular paper-cover edition, we are issuing by subscription
a special edition with imitation leather binding and stiff cover to meet the requirements of
the seniors and others who desire a book with more formal dress and more lasting qualities.
The contents of the two editions are identical: the paper, typography, and photography are
exactly the same-the difference in price between the two editions corresponds to the penny
with the difference in cost of the two bindings and covers.
But perhaps it is better to let our efforts speak for themselves. lt is the sincere wish of
the staff that you, our readers, will gain as much enioyment in the perusal of this book as
we did in its plan and execution.

AIDMS ACADEMY STUDENTS' ASS'N
El l fl
For the year 1938-1939 the following people were elected to office in the
Arms Academy Students' Association: president. Robert Scott: vice president,
William Riley: secretary, Gretchen Mirick: treasurer. Francis Stone: representa-
tives to Student Council, Marguerite Call and Harper Gerry.
As is generally known, this organization is one of the most important in
our school. Without it we should not be able to have our athletic teams. Each
year it is necessary for the organization to raise a considerable amount of
money. During the present year we have sold candy and pencils. Also three
one-act plays were put on by members of the freshman, sophomore, and iunior
classes. In April a benelit movie, "The Duke of West Point," was sponsored.
The boys' athletic teams under Coach Aaron's able leadership and the
girls' teams in the competent hands of Miss Flaherty have held up the honor
of Arms most loyally and faithfully.
Every student in school is eligible for membership in this association. The
dues are twenty-five cents each quarter, and membership entitles the student
to tree admission to all athletic games in all the sports. This year, as in the
years preceding. the senior class has succeeded in securing a one hundred
percent enrollment first. We look forward to the time when the other c'asses
will tollow the seniors' example, and the entire school body will be enrolled
one hundred percent in this worthy group.
Gretchen Mirick, '39, Secretary

1 HE STUDENT CDUNCII.
Every year the Student Council is made up of the four class presidents
and the representatives of the various organizations in school, all elected by
popular vote. Mr. Watkins is the adviser. The group acts as an intermediary
between faculty and students: Mr. Watkins represents the faculty, and the
other members represent the student body.
At a meeting early in the year the Council elects its own officers. This
year Robert Scott was president: Maysie Taylor, vice president: and Marguerite
Call, secretary. Other members of the Council were Merton Batchelder, Harper
Gerry, Peter Giacapuzzi, Kenneth Herzig, Allan Kelton, Ruth Leavitt, Howard
Marble, Donald McBride, Harold Mills, and Evelyn Shields.
Much of the work of the Council is so informal that it is difficult to explain
it in so short a space, but a few items may serve as samples. The Council voted
this year to assume responsibility with the faculty for the management of all
school socials. It also voted to sell candy at recess and during athletic games
to raise money for the A.A.S.A. Informal aftemoon parties were sponsored
by the group.
During the year informal discussions have been
held on various phases of school life. One problem
under consideration was what steps could best be
taken to minimize the petty thievery which seems to
occur wherever a large group of people is in close
association. Another question discussed was how
often the school paper should be published.

At a meeting early in the year the following officers were elected for the

Although participation in Iunior Prize Speaking was voluntary this year,
thirty-tive juniors entered the contest. Of these contestants who took part in
the try-outs on March 15 and 16, eighteen were chosen for the semi-finals.
Miss Flaherty, Mr. Miller, and Mr. Muir acted as judges with Mr. Watkins.
The semi-finals took place on Friday, March 24. From the eighteen
speakers ten were chosen to represent the Iunior Class in the finals. Those
acting as judges were Mr. Watkins, Miss Chase. and Mr. Miller.
The public exhibition was held in Science Hall on the evening of March
31 and was keenly enjoyed by an audience which filled the auditorium and
balcony nearly to capacity.

At the first meeting of the French Club, "Entre Nous," the following officers
were elected for the year: president, Barbara Peck: vice president. Olive Ware:
secretary, Mary Meyers: treasurer, Henry Dandeneau: program committee,
Mary Wood, Winfield Peck. Iacqueline Mockler, and Madeline Chamberlain.
Miss Chase is the club's adviser.
This year the program committee chose a special committee for each
meeting, which consists of a business session conducted in French and a
special program. In November we had the pleasure of hearing Mrs. Aileen
Parsons Wilder tell about her travels in Europe. She also showed us many of
the interesting things that she brought back from abroad. A Christmas party
was held in Science Hall one evening in December. One of the interesting
features of this meeting was the dramatization of "'Twas the Night Before Christ-
mas." The poem was read in French from a translation made by the members
of French III. In Ianuary, the movie, "Twenty Thousand Miles By Motor
Through Europe," was sponsored by the club, and a small admission was
charged. Although the club did not gain great wealth. the members received
much pleasure and profit. At the Valentine party, valentines with inscriptions
and verses in French were made. A prize was offered for the best one, but il
had to be divided among a large group of contestants who submitted clever
and artistic entries. Everyone did something at the March meeting. Some made
scrapbooks. while others dressed dolls or helped to make a creche or manger
scene, such as is displayed in each French home at Chrislmas. The program
for the April meeting aimed to acquaint the members with some of the folk
songs and dances dear to French people.
The year closed with a banquet in Science Hall. We are sure that all the
members feel that the year has been both educational and enjoyable.

This year under the guidance of Mr. Tufts a new extra-curricular activity
was started. This was the debating club which began the year with the follow-
ing twelve pupils enrolled as charter members: Merton Batchelder, Marguerite
Call, William Fitzgerald, Doris Lyman. Carol McQuade, William Riley. Robert
Scott. lane Shippee, Maysie Taylor, Luella Tetreault, Nancy Williams. and
Arlene Wood. After gathering information for several weeks the club put on
an informal private debate on the topic. Resolved: That the present system ol
government spending is iustiiied. The decision of the judges awarded the
victory to the negative side.
On March 24 an interesting debate was presented to the student body

TIJIQE fAIQMEl2'S CLUB
The past year has seen the development in the Agriculture Department
of an active Future Farmers of America Club under the leadership of Mr.
Tufts and Mr. Miller.
The inspiration gained from the annual meeting of the Massachusetts
Future Farmers of America, which was attended by various members of the
Shelbume department, induced us to form a local chapter for the purpose of
working cooperatively as a group. An opportunity for advancement is afford-
ed by the national organization, ranging from the lowest rank of "Green Hand"
to the highest-"The American Farmer."
In any newly formed organization the stepping stones to greater achieve-
ments must be laid with care, even in the face of difficulties. In the case of
the F.F. A. the responsibility has been carried very willingly by the officers,
who are as follows: president, Everett McCloud: secretary, Merton Batchelder:
treasurer, William Fitzgerald: reporter, Hugh Laidley: and state delegate, Cecil
The interest shown by the members of the club has proved to be valuable,
for it was made possible for them to purchase seeds and poultry supplies at a
greatly reduced rate. Also. through the year we have enioyed educational
trips and social activities which were interesting as well as entertaining.
Under the competent leadership of underclassmen, the Future Farmers
Club shows promise of being a very helpful part of the Agriculture Department
in the years to come.
Merton Batchelder, '39, Secretary
The call for football candidates was issued on September 8, and about
twenty boys reported. Six lettermen were available from the 1937 squad,
these being: Co-Captains Harper Gerry and Ioseph Tomasini, Harold Mills.
Henry Giguere, Howard Marble, and Francis Stone.
Following is a summary of the games played:
Arms 7 Greenfield 0
Arms opened her season on September 30 with the Greenfield High School
Seconds. This game was played shortly after the famous New England hurri-
cane of September 21, 1938, and many of the boys worked for the New England
Power Company the week before the game. Because of this, the team had
only four different running plays to use during the game. The only touchdown
of the game came in the second quarter when Henry Giguere scored on an
end run alter Harper Gerry had returned a punt from midfield to the 20-yard
Turners Falls 6 Arms 0
On October 7 a hard-fighting Arms eleven was defeated by the Turners
Falls Seconds in a well-played game. Arms dominated the play in the first
half, having the ball within Tumers' 10-yard line twice, but failing to score. A
series of completed passes in the third quarter brought about the winning
touchdown for Turners Falls. The Arms team showed great improvement
throughout the game.
Deerfield High 19 Arms 6
The following Wednesday, October 12, brought forth Arms' second defeat
of the year, as Deerfield High School scored a 19-6 victory. The first score of
the game came in the second quarter when Mills intercepted a Deerfield pass
and carried the ball to the two-yard line where Giacapuzzi scored on the next
play. lust before the half ended, Deerfield completed a pass for a touchdown
and scored again in the third period when an Arms pass was intercepted.
Harper Gerry was unable to play because of a knee injury received in the
Tumers Falls game.
Arms 13 Deerfield Academy I. V. 0
On October 20 the Arms team ioumeyed to Deerfield Academy where in
the pouring rain and mud they defeated the Iunior Varsity 13-0. The first
touchdown was scored after Gerry carried the ball 70 yards to the 7-yard line.
On the next play Arms fumbled. the ball rolled over the goal line. and Arms
recovered for a touchdown. Gerry's fine kicking with a slippery ball and the
playing of Pratt, Doore, and Tomasini were outstanding.
Stockbridge 20 Arms 7
A strong and definitely physically superior Stockbridge "Aggie" team was
victorious over Arms on October 28. Stockbridge scored twice in the first half
and once in the last, while Arms scored late in the second half. Arms was
unable to gain any yardage through the heavy Stockbridge line during the
first half. In the second half Arms took to the air, scoring one touchdown and
gaining over 100 yards through completed passes.
Arms 14 Huntington 12
On Friday, November 4. the Arms team joumeyed to Huntington where
they defeated Huntington High School 14-12. The game proved to be a rough
one. and tempers flared up freely on both sides in the last quarter. Arms
scored first on an end run by Pratt, but Huntington retumed the next kick off
80 yards for a touchdown. Gerry scored the second Arms touchdown, and his
two successful points after touchdown proved to be the winning margin.
Deerfield High 21 Arms 18
The final game of the year was played in the "Onion Bowl" at South Deer-
field on Armistice Day. Although Arms was defeated 21-18, the game fur-
nished many thrills which will long be remembered. This contest was broad-
cast over the radio. and many listeners commented on the unusual thrills.
South Deerfield scored first on a reverse early in the second quarter. Shortly
after the second half opened, Pratt intercepted a Deerfield pass and sprinted
55 yards for a touchdown. Deerfield scored twice in the third quarter. With
the score 21-6 against them. Arms came back with a beautifully completed
forward-lateral play. Gerry to Marble to Giguere, with the play going 65
yards for a touchdown. A few minutes later the most unusual play of the
season was completed. Boron was carrying the ball around Arms' right end
when Gerry came up from the secondary apparently to tackle the runner, but
instead he dumb-founded the crowd by snatching the ball from Boron and
running 50 yards for a touchdown. With time running short. Deerfield froze
the ball to prevent any more scoring opportunities for Arms.
On December 9 football letters were given out in assembly. The following
received varsity letters: Co-Captains Harper Gerry and Ioseph Tomasini. Arthur
Tumer. Francis Stone. Iames Rice, Everett Coutu. Alvin Pratt, Harold Mills.

good considering the large number from which they were chosen.

1939 football team.

Easily the highlight of the 1938-1939 basketball season was the surprising
24-21 victory which Arms captured from South Deerfield High in the opening
contest of the Hampshire League. Arms had won three straight games before
this, all non-league, but was credited with little chance against an experienced
Deerfield five who many believed were the potential league champions. Deer-
field led at half time 13-9, but Arms came back in the second half to wrest the
lead away from their opponents and to stay out in front by a narrow margin
during a thrilling last quarter. It was the first basketball victory over South
Deerfield in many years.
The Arms team kept up the good work by taking over Orange in the next
game 25-20. These league wins were especially pleasant from the standpoint
of the two previous lean league campaigns. Hopes soared for a successful
showing in the league on the evidence of these victories. but a machine-like
Hopkins team dropped Arms in the next game 24-13, and Smith Academy
followed with a crushing defeat. 57-15. Arms rebounded from these defeats to
pin Amherst down at home, 31-15. Smith School defeated Arms at Northamp-
ton, 33-23, and South Hadley came out on top 34-29 in a wild game at home to
finish the first half of the league season. Arms finished in a tie for fourth place
with South Hadley and South Deerfield, all with three wins and four defeats.
The second half of the league schedule proved a disappointment. Arms
had only one victory to show for six defeats.

Arms is fortunate in having seven returning veterans from a successful 1938
team which finished second in the league. The pitching staff is well fortified
with two experienced moundsmen in Harper Gerry and Alvin Pratt. with Peter
Giacapuzzi, Howard Marble. Leo Tetreault. Robert Goodnow, Everett McCloud.
and one or two freshmen in reserve. Henry Giguere is behind the plate for the
second year: a near veteran infield has "Don" Alden at first, Gerald Shippe at
short. Harold Mills at third, and Leverett Doore. letterman in football and basket-
ball, plugging the hole at second base left by the graduation of Armondo
Paoletti. Archie Ainsworth is holding down center field with Hale starting in
right field. and Gerry or Pratt altemating in left.
Baseball practice was hampered considerably by cr late spring. with the
accompanying cold weather. The first game on the schedule with Orange was
postponed because of the unusual cold. In the second game. Arms got away
to a good start in the league by defeating Amherst 4-0. Gerry pitched air
tight ball. allowing only four hits and fanning fourteen Amherst batters with a
good fast ball and a wide, sweeping curve. Arms gathered seven hits
Amherst pitcher, triples by Ainsworth and Gerry featuring the batting.

For the second consecutive year Arms won the Class B track championship
at the Greenfield Fair. Arms came out on top over South Deerfield, Orange,
and Charlemont, in contrast with the 1937 meet which included only Arms and
Orange in Class B.
The point gathering started in the first event when Peter Ferrari took first
place in the novice 100-yard dash. At the half way mark Ferrari was quite far
back of the leaders, but he put on a surprising finish to pass everyone. In the
100-yard open dash, two backiield men from the football squad showed their
speed, as Henry Giguere and Harper Gerry finished first and second respec-
tively in an eyelash finish. Alvin Pratt added another first place by leading
the half milers home, running an Orange rival into the ground in the last fifty
yards. Deerfield High had been keeping pace with Arms up to this stage, but
a second place in the running broad iump by Gerry, and second and third in
the shot put by "Don" Alden and "Art" Tumer, and a tie for third in the high
iump by Giguere and Gerry, added enough points to give Arms the meet be-
fore the final event, the relay. To make the day complete, the relay quartet
coasted home in first place. Giguere and Gerry figured in a triple tie with a
Charlemont iumper for third place in the high iump, but as they had both
accumulated medals in previous events, they passed up any claim on the
medal, and it was awarded to Charlemont.
Armondo Paoletti, Manager
The girls' basketball season opened on December 20 with the Alumni
game, which the Arms girls easily won with a score of 39-25. This game was
followed by the first loss when the Arms girls were defeated by the Charlemont
girls on the Charlemont floor. On Ianuary 4 Arms took a trip to South Deer-
field to meet with a defeat of 16-27.
The season continued with games with Greenfield, Orange, Deerfield
Academy. and Sanderson Academy. The season ended with five wins, five
defeats, and a tie. The manager was Carol McQuade. and the assistant man-
ager, elected by the junior class, was Viola Pellegrini.
We are looking forward to a good season next year, but the team will
suffer from the loss of five seniors: Mary Wood, captain, Gretchen Mirick. lane
Adams, Doris Lyman, and Anna Harris.

THE LAST SMILE
The sun streamed through the lacey curtains. making intricate patterns on her cotton
dress. It shed its blinding rays upon her wrinkled face, but her eyelids never flickered.
Instead she seemed to be staring at it defiantly. Her withered hands rested resignedly in
her lap. betraying the boldness of her eyes. Suddenly her frail shoulders shuddered. and
she gathered her lavender shawl closer about her as if a draught had caught her. Then,
sliding farther down into the overstuffed chair, she rested her head on its back and closed
So this was the result of years of work. of years of hope never broken with despairl
Was this the way all dreams materialized? Was this the outcome of everyone's youthful
For the first time in her long life she allowed herself to admit failure. For wasn't it fail-
ure to find oneself alone, and apparently unwanted, in Fairview Home for the Aged?
Wouldn't one call it failure if one's own children neglected to come forward in time of need?
Maybe she hadn't been a good mother, though Heaven knew she had tried. Maybe it was
old-fashioned to rely on one's children. Was it asking too much of one's family to share
their homes with her? Hadn't she shared hers with them? Tears seeped through her
tightly closed lids and trickled crookedly down her cheeks. Slowly she opened her eyes
and gazed into the distance.
The sun. westward bound. glared through the window no longer, and the mountains
were becoming purple and dusky. melting into the darkening sky. Somewhere outside a
car stopped. For an instant hope soared in her heart once more but died quickly. A tired
sigh escaped her: she started violently, for it was almost like voicing her defeat. But why
not-what else was there to do? Hadn't Doctor West said when one was old there was
little hope? Then why did she keep trying to encourage herself? Gradually her eyes
closed again. and her arms lay limp and yielding. A pale moon peered bravely over the
mountain and began its nocturnal ascent. A few courageous stars twinkled. for the night
was dark and still. as if awaiting a storm. A soft wind swept over the land and blew
wisps of gray hair across her face, but so tired was she that she did not bother to brush
them back or close the window.
Downstairs a young man was leaning over the matron's desk, talking quickly and
earnestly in low tones. Suddenly the woman pulled open a drawer and started to run
through her files. Finding the desired card, she rose and beckoned the man to follow her.
They started up the stairs. The young man continued talking, only now he appeared to
"But don't you understand? Of course I received her letters, but I wanted to save it
ior a surprise. Doctor West told me definitely yesterday afternoon that the operation ought
to be a success. He and several other doctors had talked over all possibilities and prob-
abilities and decided that there would be very little risk. Don't you see, I wanted to wait
till I could send her some definite news? As it is now, I can hardly wait to tell her that we'll
be able to go on that trip after all, and she'll be able to see just as well as I."
The matron turned to him and smiled. She knew that he meant it, and she realized
that all the miserable thoughts she had entertained about this son were wrong.
"This is the room. You go first."
He opened the door softly and crept cautiously across the room to where the little old

1938'S HURRICANE AND FLOOD
Little did I think when I saw the moving picture. "The Hurricane." that I should ever
experience anything of the kind. Yet within a year after I saw the picture such a thing
visited New England. and the excitement that I felt when I saw the picture was like a calm
sea compared with the awe and excitement I felt on the aftemoon and night it really
For four days it had rained and rained and kept on raining. until I wondered if it
would ever stop. As it was my first week boarding away from home I was a little home-
sick, and I was beginning to wonder if the river would ever stop rising. lt rose inch by
inch. day after day. until even the people who had lived near it all their IIVBB began to
feel a little nervous about its ever-rising waters. On the fourth day of raln some friends
and I were drenched in the downpour as we came out of the school building at dismissal:
when we crossed the street we waded in water up to our knees. A BIIII wind was breaking
off branches from the nearby trees.
In the afternoon when I began to study I noticed that the wind was strong and the
rlver was high. Dull it rained. we hdd the radio on from moming unul the electriclty
was cut off ln the afternoon. and we neard reports that the water was up to the N26 flood
mark and that trees Gnd buildings were being badly damaged by the terrific winds. I

which was entirely rulned and where the one casualty of the disaster occurred.
Later that night when II was QUIK and the waler was stlll rising. people began to walk

AS we walked the streets we would hear first a building up the river fall into the

us any less nervous.
Finally at about half past ten or eleven o'clock the water reached its height: it was
now level with the street on which I lived. Before midnight it had receded between two
and three feet. but when they let the water out at Whitingham it came back up to the same
height. By morning. however. it had receded about five feet. Much to our reliefl
Wlhen I went to school I saw fallen electric light wires and uprooted trees. At school
what few students were there had a grand time marching around pretending they were
on a strike. Many could not get to school on account of fallen wires and trees and badly
washed roads. When I came home after school I was almost sick. because I was afraid I
could not get home over the weekend: I literally iumped for joy when I saw my mother and
father on Friday aftemoon.
I had had the experience of seeing the raging flood. but I had to wait until I got heme
into the hills before I realized the damage done by the wind. Silos and farm buildings
were blown over. and hundreds of trees were uprooted.
I certainly hope I never see another floor or hurricane. especially the two combined.

OUR FELINE FRIENDS
Dad loves animals: I adore dogs: Mother is indifferent to the whole thing: so we have
cats. We have always had cats and probably always shall. Our cats have always been
thoroughly anti-social. definitely unattractive, and. with perhaps one exception, of no
practical value. Cats shed hairs, scratch furniture, and yowl at the most inconvenient
times. They are always in when they want to be out, and they are always out when they
want to be in. Worse than anything else. they have kittens lpreferably in the parlorll.
Don't you love cats?
As is generally known, cats have four legs-one at each corner. Each end is filled in,
either by a head or a tail. They have little bristles on either side of the nose. QFor some
strange reason, they heartily aislike having these bristles disengaged.J A well known
adage describes the pedal extremities of the cat as "a hand of iron in a velvet glove."
Nothing is truer, and the usual greeting of our sweet little puss is to plant her iron hand
about two inches in our delicate tleshl Q"Oh, that this too, too solid flesh would meltl"J
My first recollection of that noble beast, the cat. dates almost as far into the deep past
as 1, myself. I see myself diving under the stove tGlenwood, 19133 where I would lie by
the hour and purr with a sickly yellow specimen called "Dickie." fwhere do cats get

of the local social butterflies. But alackl "Dickie" met the roaring death of the gas-

in our gardenl. I used to wonder if "Dickie" went to heaven: dear reader, could you

sniff and then come in. Do you suppose it's the cabbage soup or Mother's Yardley?
Such was the advent into our little household of "Katze," one of the most intellectual
cats I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I believe that "Katze's" poppa was a wild
cat. because she would never tolerate my advances, nor those of practically everyone
else. Dad, however, could usually entice her to his arms with a bit of salmon. I think
there was chemical affinity between them.
"Katze's" exploits as a big-game hunter seem fabulous, but I will vouch for them.
"Kane," single handed, would bring back fusually dead-but not alwaysl monstrous rats.
chipmunks, squirrels, and, upon one glorious occasion, a rabbit.
"Katze" had kittens annually, and she used to play a kind of game with us, by
depositing them in a different locality each year. We were usually able to follow her
from closet to closet, but one year she stumped us. Later it was discovered that the 1932
family fit was 1932 that yearl resided in an unused stove in the attic. The doting mother

As might be expected, the offspring of this unusual cat were legion. We gave away
as many as possible: the undesirable remained with us. t'l'he horrible custom of drowning
little innocent kittens seems to us both barbaric and iniquitous, and we are guilty of the
administration of chloroform only as a drastic measure.l For that reason, our present cat
is somewhat lacking in his revered mother's sterling qualities.
I have observed in all my associations with felinity a decided intellect. Our cat knows
the difference between Bach and Goodman. When the classics enter our abode via the
ether waves. kitty sleeps peacefully: let a iam session rage, there is a noticeable twitch
of the ear. When his young mistress occasionally attacks the piano, he stalks to the door
and impatiently begs to be let outl
In this discourse upon the physical and moral qualities of the cat, I have endeavored
to show what can best be described by the German proverb, "Bei nacht sint alle Katzen
Olive Ware, '40
In Arms Academy some twenty to twenty-five pupils are carrying on an entertaining
and worthwhile correspondence with boys and girls of other countries. The idea started in
the French department where those who were greatly interested in the French language and
customs decided it would be fun to become acquainted with students in France. At first
only names of French pupils were secured. Then, as letters were received, other students
became interested in the project. and more names were obtained by writing to the Directory
of Boys and Girls of All Nations in Boston. New we are corresponding with students, not
only in France, but also in ten or twelve other countries, including Africa. Australia. British
Isles. Sweden. Switzerland. and South America. In addition to le.ters, some of the corre-
spondents have exchanged souvenirs. photographs, snapshots. and stamps and coins. Stamp
collecting seems to be an international hobby, and our pen-pals have been generous in
contributing to our collections. Luella Tetreault received as a birthday gift a beautiful.
beaded, leather belt from her correspondent in Morocco.
It is interesting, as well as educational. to leam the differences of opinion between
people of different nationalities and some of the mistaken beliefs each has of the other's
customs. For instance. Clayton Barry's correspondent in South Africa writes: "Iudging
lrom the letters that some of my friends have received from their pen-pals. you people over
seas seem to know absolutely nothing about South Africa. You think we are black, live as
savages. and have absolutely no sense. One girl even went as far as to tell one of my
friends the days of the week and the number of seconds in a minute."
Pen-pals in other countries like many of the same sports as we do, but they cannot
always enjoy all of them because of the climate. In a letter to Eleanor Goodnow, her friend
in England writes: "I am sure I should like tobogganing and skiing if only we had the snow,
but actually we haven't had any snow for nearly three years."
Some of the people who are almost surrounded by warring nations feel sympathy for
those who have lost their homes because of war. My own pen-pal from France wrote in his
last letter: "In France we have refugee Spaniards. What a poor peoplel It is mournful to
When the correspondents are not quite sure of our language, they will often translate
literally from their own tongue. Thus it makes us aware of the countless idiomatic phrases
which we use every day and which must seem as strange to them as the following excerpts
do to us:
"What a weather does he do at your country?"
"I am not gone at home, the last month."
"Near Christmas we have a hard snowfall and since then we believed that
winter was over, but last Friday snow began to fall again and it was
allowed to hope to ski. However, during the whole winter there were
only a few days when on snow it may be very well skied."
Sentence construction is learned more easily by reading the errors of others. Anyone
who has studied another language knows how easy it is to mix the agreement of subject
and predicate in a sentence. If we really are anxious to leam the language, such state-
ments as the following renew our hope: "My sister know no English" and "Let me tell you
that your French is much better, I ask you also to tell me either my English is ever good."
We hope this foreign correspondence will continue for a long time. We also would
encourage more people to make it one of their hobbies, as it helps one to become better
acquainted with hitherto unknown brothers and sisters. Wouldn't it be thrilling if these
pen-pals should at some future time have the opportunity of meeting and further strength-
ening the friendships begun at Arms?

ADVENTURING ON FLOOD WATERS
This is a true adventure which I experienced in Hatfield, Massachusetts, in 1936. I was
with three companions. two of whom I shall call Nigger and Cark. The other, whom we
called Shag, was a dog.
I got up early and. after eating a scant breakfast. was out to see the damages and
sights caused by the flood, which had reached its peak at about eleven o'clock the previous
night. As I hiked along the flood-washed road which led into Hatfield from the north, I
sighted the two boys with whom I had this adventure. While we were scrambling around
on the ice at the edge of Hatfield Pond, Nigger suggested that we get Cark's row boat and
see what we could see.
We arrived at Cark's house at about seven o'clock. After taking his boat down from
the second story of a shed, we put it onto a two-wheel contraption designed by Cark for
this sole purpose and made our way down the main street to the pond. Here Cark and I
launched the boat and bolted on the oar locks while Nigger ran home for his rifle.
It was a little out of season for hunting muskrats, and Nigger didn't have a license, but
adventure was ahead and such trifles did not burden our minds. We hid the rifle in the
bottom of the boat, and Nigger shoved off. As Nigger was the heaviest. he seated himself
in the stern: Cark took the oars: and I took my position in the bow.
The air was filled with a light mist, as it was raining slightly, and there was quite a
stiff breeze. which ruffled the water into tiny waves. The wind and waves were against us.
so our headway was not very fast. As we made our way from the pond toward the swollen
and angry Connecticut. I remember a giant elm tree about five feet in diameter, which was
submerged in the flood waters to a depth of ten or twelve feet. This tree stood in the middle
of an open field, and we sheltered ourselves from the wind and rain for a minute or two
as we passed it. After another fifteen or twenty minutes of rowing, Cark landed us on a
high part of the Connecticut's shore. We handed the dog ashore and walked along the
bank, watching huge ice cakes float down the river. Nigger took a few shots at some birds
riding downstream on the ice cakes, and then hit on the brilliant idea of getting out in the
edge of the current with the boat and having a good swift ride. Cark was not to be stumped,
so we got into the boat: he rowed upstream in the flood waters until he found a desirable
place to pull out into the current. The big ice stayed in the middle of the river where the
channels were. so I don't suppose the risk was very great. Nevertheless, I was a little nerved
up about the idea. The ride was a swift one all right. but with Cark's rowing we managed
to avoid hitting any ice or being hit by any. The current carried us downstream for about
a quarter of a mile, and there Cark pulled into quiet waters in the midst of some small
ironwood trees. By this time it was about twelve o'clock, and we decided to start for home.
The wind was with us now, and we moved along a little faster. Nigger and I each took a
tum at the oars on the way home.
About half way across the pond we noticed a flat piece of ice, roughly ten feet square.
which had probably backed up from the river. We decided to row onto it and have some
fun. I pushed the side of it down, and Cark gave a mighty pull on the oars. We got about
half on when. for some reason unknown, it decided to bob up again. It lifted the front of
the boat up. and the back sank deeper, taking on a little water. This would never do: so
while Nigger sat very still, Cark handed me an oar. and I pushed off. We decided not to
try it again and continued our homeward voyage. Cold and hungry we landed on the
main street at about one o'clock and decided that we had had enough boating for one day.

My workshop is a small building in the rear ol the main house. This building ol mine
is about twenty by thirty feet in dimensions. Iust recently I wired it for electricity. The
wiring, of course, is not as good as a professional could do, but I have had it approved by
a good electrician.
In my shop I do everything from woodworking to photography. In the woodworking
department I have a lathe, a iigsaw, and several hand tools. With the tools in this part of
the shop I make lamps, bookcases, bookends, and radio tables. My grandfather seems to
enioy working in my shop almost as much as I do. He has made several things for his
home, such as a plant table and some other pieces of furniture. The carpentry part of the
workshop is powered by a small one-third horsepower motor, which is used lor both the
lathe and the iigsaw.
In another part of my shop is the radio department. I have had several old radios to
take apart or repair. Although I was told that I should not succeed in making radios work,
I have finally succeeded in getting them to pull in the electrical waves from the ether. In
tact, I have repaired and made work the small battery radio that belongs to the Science
Department of Arms Academy. In the radio department I have such a maze of condensers,
wires, tubes, and switches that anyone not knowing the layout is apt to get in a mess if he
tries to fool with them.
Still another department of this building is the photography room. I use this small room
to take pictures in. The lights in this room make it almost as bright as day. After I take
the pictures I develop them with a developing kit which I purchased recently. I can develop
my lilms lor about one-third of the price that I have to pay in drugstores.
I have saved the best part of my workshop till last: this is the chemistry laboratory. In
this laboratory I have running hot and cold water, a gas system, several acids, an array
nf test tubes and bottles. and a ten-dollar chemistry set which I bought for twenty-five cents.
The water system in my laboratory consists of a large fifteen-gallon tank for cold water and
a smaller tank for hot water. This system works on the principle of the syphon. The-e is
a pipe that reaches to the bottom of each tank and then extends up over the top of the
tank and down to a faucet. Although there is not much pressure in these faucets, the water
does run fairly fast.
One of mv verv best "inventions", is the gas svstem, which consists of an old oil pump
taken from a Pierce Arrow motor car, a large tank from an old water pump. and a motor
from a discarded exhaust fan. The principle on which this system works is the vaporization
of gasoline. I vaporixe the gasoline by pumping air through the gasoline in the old tank.
All of the system except the pump and motor is encased in reenforced concrete, so that in
case of an explosion there would be no danger from fire. As a further precaution the
system is installed outdoors in a separate building. A brooder stove from a hen farmer
furnishes enough heat even in the winter.
I have a visiting list in the workshop and on it are the autographs oi visitors from
Brattleboro, Vermont: New Haven, Connecticut: and Springfield, New Bedford, and Shel-
bume Falls, Massachusetts. I have a lot oi good clean tun in my shop during my spare
time. In fact, I am sometimes "kidded" because ol my love of working in the little building
in back of the main house.

I LEARN TO ROLLER SKATE
"Tonight we are to go roller skating."
With these words still ringing in my ears, I got out my tweed skirt and suede shoes in
preparation for a thrilling evening. But when we arrived at the rink and as the evening
wore on, "thrilling" didn't describe my state, either mentally or physically.
'My dear, you do know how to roller skate. don't you?" asked my hostess with a beam-
"That's finel It really is simple. you know. Merely put one foot before the other and
push. Nothing to it."
"Well, there's Margaret. Goodbye. Enioy yourself, won't you, dear?"
Enioy myself? Enjoy myselfl How sweet of herl How many people. supposedly the
receivers of good wishes. have felt that the Good Samaritan idea can be carried to an
excess. Like a convicted prisoner, I went forward to the inevitable. Up to that time. I
believe, no one in the records of mankind had ever defied the laws of gravity as I did that
evening. With one leg at a precarious angle I did the difficult "iack-knife" dive that no
swimmer since has equalled.
To those sages who indoctrinate the innocent with poppycock about mastering their
destinies. and to Cassius. who said, "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars. but in our-

As all things must come to an end. so the party finally began to think of home and bed.

lim and lane Loring were the two happiest people I have ever known. lim was ambi-

have always near: when she was in the room everything seemed to shine as she sat in the

everyone knew Wentworth looked pretty bad. Nothing could possibly stop Iim Loring. we
thought. Then one cold autumn day. when even the weather was depressing. the bank
inspectors came to look over and check the books. Confidently Iim brought them out.
After a while the inspectors worked with their mouths set in grim lines. Slowly Iim leamed
that he was suspected of embezzling over S3.0U0. That night Iim kissed his wife and child,
opened the door, and stepped out into the beckoning darkness. He tumed to tell them he
would be back soon. That was the last any of us saw of him ior many years.
Iane changed completely. She appeared for a time to be crushed by this disaster:
then she got a iob. Often she talked to Leslie of him: always she protested his innocence.
The winter that Leslie was eight years old Iane became very ill. She never got well. Her
last words to Leslie were. "When your father comes back, tell him I knew he didn't do it.
Be good to him. my dear. He has suffered, too. Leslie."
Leslie hated her father from that time on. Seeing her mother die had frozen her heart:
he had done this. that gay. laughing. thieving Iim.
Old Wentworth rapidly lost his health after Iim's wife died. After his death a letter of
his was found in which he confessed his guilt. Ioyfully Iim's friends tried to get in touch
with him. but to no avail. The years rolled on and Leslie entered her 'teens-a child. yet

the courteous salesgirl.
"Have you any idea what she would like?"
"Well, no-no. you see. a friend's daughter-I want to give her a present."
The salesgirl selected a fat compact from a tray containing many and held it up for
her customer to see.
"No, that wouldn't do at all. Why, she's iust a childl"

ON WRITING A THEME
As we enter English class some bright and sunny day our teacher casually informs us
that we have a theme due in three weeks. The subiect, she tells us, may be anything in
which we are interested. Immediately I make a resolution that I will tackle this theme on
the next weekend and be among the first to pass it in.
The weekend comes, as all weekends do, and offers the usual temptations to "take it
easy" and not accomplish anything. I excuse myself by telling myself that last week was
a strenuous one and I need a rest: next week I will take that theme by the "horns" and
really do it. Comes the next weekend: it does absolutely no good to remind myself of my
earlier intentions. because my mind just doesn't understand. Well, during the following
weekend I come to my senses and declare that the weekend to come will be an ideal one
for writing a theme. This time I really do start my masterpiece. I gather pencil and paper.
sit down at my desk, and then busily engage myself in the task of chewing the end of my
pencil. This accomplished. I must get up and sharpen the pencil. Again comfortably seated,
I hear the doorbell ring: soon two of my girl friends dash into my room. At their suggestion
that we make fudge, I utterly abandon the idea of ever finishing for even starting! my
theme this weekend.
Since the theme is due the following Friday, I try to snatch a few minutes here and
there during the week to write, but with no success. Every night before I go to sleep I mull
over in my mind a list of possible titles. Occasionally I strike upon a good one for at lea-xt
I think so at the timel. but by morning it has so completely vanished from mv mind that r-o
amount of "wracking my brain" will do the least bit of good, so I conclude that it was
probably a "sour grape" anyway.
Well, all this is getting me nowhere. and two days before the thina is due I begin to
have qualms. I simply must think of a titlel Of course. there are rather serious essays,
which I could write, but they do not appeal to me: at character sketches I am positively
impossible: and the writing of poetrv doesn't interest me in the least. So I decide that it
must be a short storv. Now, should it be sad. serious, dramatic. humorous. or adventurous?
After having some fierce arguments with myself and pointing out the good and bad points
of each, I finally decide upon an adventure story.
"Time marches on," but it seems to me that it is doing a quick step. It is now the day
before the "blasted thing" is due. This adventure story-where should it take place? Hav-
ing read several romantic stories about pirates and eighteenth-centurv sailing vessels, I
decide that the sea offers the ideal setting. However, when I make a mental survey of mv
vocabulary of nautical terms, I find it is sadly lacking, and I realize that the words which
would issue from the lips of my seafarina hero and villain would be the height of incon-
frruity. Next. I turn my attention to the Wild West and cowboys. Since I have seen more
"horse operas" than sea pictures, I am better acquainted with the language of "cow-
punchers" than with that of "old salts." At last I decide that this is the field for me to
Having hit upon this perfectly marvelous idea. I rush up to my desk to write before the
thought gets cold, only to discover that my desk is cluttered with books and papers and
several miscellaneous articles that one does not ordinarily find upon a desk. After clearing
it off in a slipshod manner I discover that all of my pencils and papers are downstairs.
Finding these is a task in itself. but after a careful search through all my books I finally find
them in the pantry where I left them when I went there after a "snack." By this time I
realize that I am hungry again: therefore I take a little lunch upstairs with me.
Now I am ready to do this iob the way it should be done. I write busily for approxi-
mately thirty minutes when I too vigorously put a period at the end of a sentence, break a
pencil, and have to get up to sharpen it. "Mom" hears me stirring around and decides that
I had better come down and set the table for supper. I accept my sad fate with the air of
a martyr, but after supper I "wangle" an excuse from the dishes and start composing again.
Writing merrily along and living the parts of my characters, I suddenly without the slightest
warning find myself confronted with the most perplexing situation. I have Charles Clear-
water, a veritable Beau Brummel, chasing Randolph Rindstone. the black-hearted villain.
across the desert: I haven't the slightest idea what they are going to do next. After thinking
for a while. I resort to calling up a girl friend and asking her it she has ever chased or been
chased across a desert by a villain. She suggests that the villain fall off a cliff and that
the hero and heroine "live happily ever after." Although the whole situation seems a bit
improbable, I accept it as the only solution to my problem. and the first draft is promptly
finished. I read this "unpolished diamond," so to speak, to an ever-patient mother. who
gives me timely advice and helps me smooth out the roughest spots.
The clock ticks merrily along: the hour gets closer and closer to midnight: I realize
that I haven't done any of my other studying and that, unless I want the wrath of all the
rest of my teachers on my head, I had better get started. Having done my other studying
in a half-hearted fashion, I throw my weary self into bed and determine to copy the theme
in school the next day.
In my first study period I conscientiously copy a page and a half: then my pen with a
scratch runs dry. At times like these one certainly feels like using no small amount of
profane language. I search the study hall for someone with a bottle of ink, some of which
I borrow. I have time to copy only a few more lines before the bell rings and the period
ends. During the next study period I manage to get quite a bit accomplished. but I realize
too late that I should have made a paragraph here and used a different word there.
At the end of the school day I have finished my task. With a sigh of relief I place the
theme tenderly upon the teacher's desk. resolving never again to leave anything until the
last minute. Now, please don't get me wrong: I love themeslll

SONG OF THE SEA
Come, let us go this fine spring day
With the breeze to the dancing sea.
Lookl How the waves and the sunbeams play,
Dancing for you and for me.
Come, let us go where the mermaids play
And the white cliffs rise from the sea.
We'll go where the sun sends its first lovely ray
And the sea maids are dancing with glee.
Come, let us go where the proud ships sail
And the sea gull calls to its mate.
We'll go far out o'er the boundless deep.
Where the winds their tales relate.
Come, let us go where the blue ocean foams.
Where the waves dance wildly o'er:
And we'll swim to the rhythm of the wind
As it whistles its way toward the shore.
Dorothy Fairbanks, '39
Sunsets of the spacious West,
Spreading wide their blanket gold.
Settle as a queen to rest
Peacefully blending new and old.

AN IMPORTANT ERRAND
Underneath a ragged sweater one small heart beat wildly. Two adoring brown eyes
followed a human dynamo of silver and blue as it rocketed from one end of the field to
the other. One noisy voice added a discord to the enthusiastic cheering section as the
dynamo battled his way through all opposition to score touchdown after touchdown. The
same eyes were blind to the fact that his hero had just fumbled a pass. How could the
wonderful Peters be wrong?
The half: "Here, boy, willya take this towel out ta Peters? Well, the half'll be over
before ya get startedl Say, willya look at that kid go? He looked kinda dazed for a
Two short legs scurried out onto the field. One freckled face was alight. Wasn't the
owner of those freckles well aware that he was followed by the envious glances of those
who stayed behind? Wasn't one small brain busy reflecting on the glory to be his when
he got home?
Peters was in deep conference. when a slight, quavering voice suddenly reached his
consciousness. The heart beat more widly as the god turned around. "Thanks, kid." The
sound of his voice made the turbulent heart turn a complete somersault beneath the old
Back again with friends and buddies the worshipper found himself almost the wor-
shipped. He had served their god and in their estimation and his own had helped a great
deal toward winning the game.

When the hard cold ground gets mellow.
And the maple sap runs fast:
When you hear the bull-frog's bellow.
Well, spring has come at last.
When hepaticas peep from the dead brown leaves,
And the north-bound geese go past:
When swallows murmur about the eaves,
Then spring has come at last.
lt's all very well to delight in snow
And the cold wind's icy blast,
But l've been thinkin': and do you know
I'm glad spring's come at lastl

Broken windows let in the cold.

Are as boring as ancient kings.
But algebra and "geom" are worse than
They require a mental acrobat!

Are not so bad: but they're bad enough
On the whole we're not misused.
Though oiten we ieel that we're abused
While we're here we fuss and fret.
But when we leave our eyes are wet.
