S I mn WK WILD FLOWER GARDEN To that spirit of service which has developed within the student body personality, character, and high ideals during the past twenty-five yearsg to that spirit of service which will continue as an incentive to those who will be members of the Arsenal Technical Schools for the coming years and who will continue to bring distinction and honor to our school, We dedicate this magazine. 3 ,, BY JANET BEVER F5 Q Qllllflfl 2 2 When a person gives of himself by rendering a service his spirit is increased many fold, for-uthe hand cannot grasp the Whole of its alms, the heart outstretches its eager palms-.U So the spirit of service as exemplified in the activities of those interested in Tech becomes "a thread of all sustaining beauty" to which we, the editors, show deference in this maga- zine. Everyday concrete evidence of the spirit of service being developed within our school is demonstrated by the many groups and individuals who are constantly giving of their time and energies to the growth of the school and in so doing, are being benefited themselves. D So numerous are these service groups which are in keeping with the theme of this magazine, for they really embody the entire school, that they must be represented by only a few of the activities on the campus. The cooperative spirit among clubs or clubs and classes when they prepare programs for each other, or of faculty members who work with or for groups is well recognized as a contributing factor that makes Tech the great school that it is today. , Demegorians speak before schools, clubs, Parent-Teacher organizations, and church groups, while the debate team enters regional, sectional, and state debate contests, having brought special recognition to Tech by winning state finals. The Music department assists in nearly all functions on the campus: the Military Band plays for our football games and for Supreme Day exercises, the Concert Band furnishes music for all of our assemblies. The Concert Orchestra plays for Commencement, Vespers, Christmas programs, and for almost all of the senior activities. The String Ensemble plays for informal groups both within the school and at outside functions. The Choir furnishes music for clubs, assemblies, and programs outside the schoolg and the Madrigal Club sings frequently before luncheon clubs and other organizations. It is the Make-up staff that so expertly makes up the charac- ters for our school programs and often assists outside organi- zations in their productions. W Messengers who voluntarily give of their time to deliver notes and messages for school officials play a large part in this plan of service, as do the traffic officers who efficiently regulate the traffic problems of this vast student body. The ARSENAL CANNON interprets the real Tech to large numbers of readers, while the publicity staff, Writing for the city papers, keeps the public informed as to the many worth- while projects and undertakings of the school. Individuals, through their own initiative, bring honor to the school by assisting in classes, acting as ofiice assistants, assisting in the library, lunchroom, shops, and gyms. The faculty, office force, and custodians who give of their time, thought, and energy to the maintenance of the physical, mental, and social life make up a large part of this service group. No person exists who does not influence others by his personality. Like an individual, a school fConzinued on Page 391 .ww .:::fM ,Mm. M, Q3 ff' -. ., SENIOR SPONSORS The six senior sponsors prepare guidance cards to help seniors to pre- pare for the future. OFFICE MESSENCERS Messengers deliver offi- cial calls and messages during school hours for the main office and the offices of the dean and department heads. CONTEST WINNERS To represent the school in literary and art con- tests and to win honors in these contests is to bring distinction to the name of Technical High School. ADM IN ISTRATORS Tech's principal and four vice-principals meet to discuss the vari- ous problems of the school and ways in which to make it a het- ter institution. TRAFFIC OFFICERS With a student body of seven thousand, safety, a big issue on the campus, is effectively handled by student traihc ofhcers. COMM UNITY SPEAKERS Public speaking stu- dents join the army of speakers in behalf of the Community Fund in the various churches of the city. SPECIAL BULLETINS The distribution of spe- cial bulletins to all of the rooms in the school requires the services of a number of Tech's will- ing youths. 7 PRINT SHOP IIELPERS The printing of tickets, programs, school publi- cations, and other mat- teris handled by student workers in the school print shop. CAMPUS WORKERS Teclfs pride, its seventy- six acres and sixteen buildings, are kept in good condition by the large force of eliicient custodians. AGRICULTURISTS Agriculture boys supply the cafeteria with fresh lettuce, raised in their new greenhouse. 8 POSTER MAKERS Extensive work on post- ers is done by the com- mercial art students for campus campaigns that are carried on during the school year. LAYOUT ARTISTS Layout classes design layouts for school publi- cations and programs for entertainments. PUBLICITY WRITERS The journalism students who write school news for some sixteen neigh- borhood papers inter- pret the school to the public. 9 SERVING SPECIALIST S When special dinners are served in the Home Economics dining room it is the girls from cook- ing classes who prepare and serve the meals. RADIO PRACTICE Radio Practice students advertise Tech projects and provide entertain- ment from time to time, during the roll call period. 'THE LAST PUPPETU To arouse interest in a club is of great impor- tance. Time and again u class aids a club by pro- viding good entertain- ment. L F IRST AID First-aid attention is given to pupils with minor injuries and ail- ments by the nurses, as- sistants in the First Aid Room. UNCHROOM WORKE Service in the lunch- room i tor in the day's routine. A . gain the students show their willingness to FPTV6. S 3 HCCCSSHIY fHC- CLASS ASSISTANTS An invaluable aid to the teacher in the large vlasses is the gym assist- ants who take the roll and assist in directing the pupils. 11 RS DEPARTMENTAL ASSISTANTS The numerous duties that arise in a depart- mental office are effi- ciently handled by stu- dent workers. OFFICE PRODUCTION Office production stu- dents render an invalu- able service to the school by mimeographing ma- terial and by serving as secretaries. LIBRARY ASSISTANTS Ever ready to serve their patrons, student libra- rians assist their fellow- studentsin finding books and reference material. 12 SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE A division of the senior activities is the Scholar- ship committee which strives to raise the scho' lastic standard of the school. QALESMEN The success of many Tech projects is due, to a great extent, to the ticket salesmen who are chosen from sponsor .rooms and advertising and salesmanship class- es. STUDENT COUNCIL Acting as the executive body of the senior class the Student Council composed of the five of ficers in each of the sm senior roll rooms, holds meetings to discuss prob lems concerning the class. THE TOWER AT SUNSET W 5 SUNNING BETWEEN CLASSES THE MAIN BUILDING A FAMILIAR WALK BETWEEN TWO SYCAMORES SHADOWS AROUND THE CORNER 14 Q , 9 A . Q5 - - ggi ' if-sg M r -fiiifl ' it THE RETURN UE LIFE He was just one of perhaps a half a million tired, hot people who lived in the world of dust, for the merciless pale sun shone continuously on the dry earth, the dry people, the dry souls, and the dry crops, all BY struggling to live with one hope in ELIZABETHANN mind-that rain, the life-giving rain, SOUTH might fall. ENGLISH VI But rain had not been seen for weeks, yes, for months, for the sun seemed determined to fill the whole universe with her drying rays. He, or shall we call him Juan De Casa, was desper- ate for, if rain did not fall soon, he would be lost, for his farm was mortgaged and- his only son was dying of fever. If the Great One was merciful and rain fell, soon his crops would grow, he would be able to pay the mortgage, and he could get a doctor for his dying son. Even Rosa's smooth olive skin was dry and parched, her hands were red and roughened, and her almond shaped nails were torn and broken. The year before his rancho was prosperous, fiestas were held regularly, and his wife was fresh and glowing. He had had many servants and many pesos, and he was generous to the needy. But all that was different now, for his crops were eaten by locusts, and his sheep and cows had died like moths around a fire. He had mortgaged his lovely rancho to feed his wife and child during the winter, and all his servants had gone to find another place where they would be needed. No more milk could be gotten, for long ago his last two cows had lain down in the dust heap that served as a barnyard, and sighed a sigh of thanksgiving that the Great One had called them from their sufferings. And now only their whitened bones, dry as tinder, remained to tell the story of death. Juan, sitting beside the dry well, denounced the sun as an enemy, and as he was vowing revenge, the fright- ened cry of Rosa fell upon his ears. Running to the adobe house, he went to the bedroom and saw Rosa bending over the tiny form of his son who was moaning and tossing in his wooden cradle. "He must have a doctor soon,', sobbed Rosa wildly, "or my only son will go to oin his forefathers. I have prayed to St. Mary, but my boy only gets worse. Oh please go to the white doctor and bring him to my son. I fear for him." ' ,- Z' iii f ff H, at if- J' ff -I --X "He had mortgaged his lovely rancho-' Hearing Rosais desperate plea, Juan made the deci- sion that his son would be saved even if his father died in the attempt. Running quickly to the corral he grabbed a bridle and went to the barn where he put it on his beloved horse Night. She was the only living animal Juan had left, for he kept her in the cool barn and fed her with the utmost care. Leaping upon Night's back, he disappeared in a swirl of dust. The dust seemed to swallow him, for all that could be seen was a large whirlpool of dust, and all that could be heard was the thunder of beating hoofs and the occasional word of courage from Juan to his horse. ' Arriving in town, Juan, still in a cloud of dust, galloped to the white doctor's office and made his errand known. When he said he would not be able to pay the bill for some time, the doctor did not seem to hear for he had gathered his equipment and disappeared toward the barn. Appearing again he was riding a large white horse, and spurring the horse forward, he was soon lost to sight. Juan returned to his horse, Night. Mounting him, Juan followed the whirl of dust that seemed to be blown hither and yon by the wind, but which was really the doctor. All at once, Night stopped, threw her head in the air, and snorted. Juan, looking around to see what fright- ened the horse, heard the far off rumble of drums-but wait-it was thunder he heard, and thunder meant rain -rain! The Great One was merciful after all. But here Juan checked himself g had the Great One been merciful-was his son still alive or had the hovering Angel of Death claimed his soul? Juan hurried onward and soon reached his rancho. Seeing the doctor's horse standing in the corral, its sides lathered and its head hanging, he hurried inside to see the baby. He was lying quiet in the cradle with a smile on his face, and the doctor was bending over Rosa, who was lying on the bed exhausted and pale. Seeing Juan enter, the doctor spoke, "Your son will live." As he uttered these words, a torrent of water fell upon the parched earth, giving life to the land, the people, the souls, and the crops. And the Queen of Heat had hidden her radiant face in defeat. Oh yes, the Great One was merciful, and crossing himself, Juan fell on his knees and gave thanks. BY HELEN PENNAK ENGLISH VIIIc THE MYSTERY UE THE MUSIC PIUUM A black sky was covered with huge patches of light clouds through which, at intervals, a full moon peered down on an old Ford chugging down a deserted country road. Inside the car a youth unskillfully steered into all the ruts. A young girl sat beside him, yawning occasionally and bouncing off the seat often. "Phil," she murmured sleepily, "I bet Uncle Frank will be surprised to see us. Why, he hasn,t seen us since Mother and Daddyf' she choked, "since the accidentf, Her brother said nothing for a moment. Then, "Nope," he replied, "and we haven't been to his house since Marianne died. That was about fifteen years ago, for you were just twof' "Marianne must have been very beautiful," mused the girl. "Uncle Frank must have loved her very much." "He did." The boy7s voice was low with feeling. "I was only four, but I still remember the look on his face when he found she had run away with another man. They had been married only a year, you know. She came back to him later, but she was ill and died very soon." "I wouldn't want to live by myself in that big house where she diedlv '4Why, Linda? I guess he feels nearer to her there. Her grave is just over the hill." '4That,s ust it! But Heavens, what spooky conver- sation! Let's talk of something else. Phil-," she maneuvered her left arm until the momentary moon- glow rested on her watch. "Phil, do you think we'd better go on tonight? Itis almost nine oiclock. He doesnit know we're coming. He may be in bed. Couldn't we stop at the next little town for the night and go on in the morning?" 6'We'd be there now if it hadn't been for that flat tire,'l Phil muttered. 'alt can7t be much farther. We might as well go on now." The roadway unrolled before them, tortuous and narrow. Each sank deep in thought. Orphaned by an automobile crash fourteen years before, Linda and Phil Jamison lived with their father's maiden sister, Nelle, in Creighton. In June, N elle ,I ami- son started on a trip, and a week later sent Linda and Phil word that she was extending the trip, so they would have to close the town house and stay at a hotel until she returned. The same afternoon Linda found a box of old letters. One was addressed to her mother and signed by her mother's only brother, Frank Jeffries. On the back was the address of the old ,lelfries homestead far out on Clairmonte Road. Phil had gaily accepted Lindaas suggestion that they visit Uncle Frank, so they had packed their bags and hopped into the Ford. There was no doubt in their young minds as to their welcome fre, if is l ".. , , 4 i i' W '..' .. t .. 4 X fff " "-a tall handsome young man opened it-dressed immaculately in the style of about fifteen years before? although they had sent no word, and silent Aunt Nelle had never mentioned her sister-in-law's family. Linda was roused from her revery by the beauty of the scene spread before her. Before them a hill sloped steeply down to a stream, silvered in the moonlight. At one side, etched in silvery-gray against the sky, stood a dilapidated building, its broken-out windows a blur of deeper black. Across the brook the ground gently slanted up again. There, to the right of the road, the sunken tombstones of an ancient cemetery showed misty gray. Beyond them a tiny church stood, decayed and falling into ruin. All that moved except the car was its shadow that tagged so insistently after them. "How beautiful," Linda thought aloud. '6We're almost there," sang out Phil. "Marianne must be buried in that cemetery, and Uncle Frank must live just over the hill." As the car splashed through the shallow water, the moon went behind a cloud and stifling darkness closed in, leaving only the gleam of the headlights. When they started up the hill the moon reappeared, .showing again the weird scene. It was a land of the forgotten, wherein no thing lived or moved except themselves! Or was it! Even as they watched, a grayish object slowly disen- gaged itself from one tombstone and seemed to flit quickly into the denser gloom beyond the church. Linda clutched Phil's arm. He pressed the accelerator, and the rattling old car darted forward. 'fGuess Pm seeing things!" Linda gulped. ".Iitters!" Phil glanced uneasily behind him. Five minutes later they stopped in front of a large house. Striking a match, Phil looked at a rotting mailbox. "K and I-e-f are all I can make out," he called, "but l'm sure this is the place." WW Q zWi"if'?i'3 I T TT QQ f ' -1-L g p -it 5 F T ml 'tThere, to the right of the road, the sunken tc In the yard grew two gnarled giant willow trees, festooned with parasitic Spanish moss which hung in long ghostly strands like a maidenfs Hoating tresses. The moon disappeared and returned no more. The wind arose and the willow moaned. Two windows of the big house were illuminated by a feeble, flickering candle glow. Linda and Phil tumbled out of the car, and gripping their bags, they started up the grass-grown walk. Boards creaked as they stepped upon the porch. A sudden gust of wind tossed a string of moss into Linda's face. She shuddered. A full ten minutes they pounded on the door before it was answered. Finally a tall, handsome young man opened it. He was dressed immaculately in the style of about fifteen years before. Startled at the youthful man before him, Phil stuttered, HUh-is uh-is this where Frank Jeffries lives?', HI am J effriesf, returned the man evenly. "Uncle Frank! It's me, Phil! Phil and Linda! Don,t you know us?" '4Why, so it is. Do come in, children. Little Phil and Linda. Iave not seen you for so long!,' "It,s so strangef' thought Linda as he ushered them into the living room. HI expected him to be so much older. And what a queer Welcome! He isn't in the least surprised 1" Interrupting her train of thought, her uncle said, "I had just returned from a walk across the hill. Now I suppose you're tired, so I'll prepare your rooms." The ancient stairs scarcely creaked beneath his weight. He walked with an easy, swingy grace-seemed almost to float along. Linda and Phil looked about the room in which they sat. It was furnished comfortably enough al- though it was quite old-fashioned, and the room was lit by candles. Looking through the doorway and across the reception hall, they saw a tightly closed door. "The music roomf' whispered Phil, "where Mari- anne spent most of her time. I guess he keeps it closed off and never goes into it." "The whole house smells musty and unused, doesn't it?,' returned Linda. Almost at once their uncle returned and escorted them to their rooms on the second floor. Under their f 79 - A 20 I fd' nes of an ancient cemetery showed misty gray? combined weights the stair steps groaned loudly. The candle he carried cast eerie shadows on Frank Jeffries' face. Linda,s room was directly across the hall from Philfs. Each room was scantily filled with odd old furniture. Each was lit by several candles. Linda retired at once. She was weary and sleepy. She heard Phil,s bed squeak and his long contented sigh as he lay down, then all was still. A long time Linda drowsily tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep. She lit a candle and looked at her watch when she first heard the strange noise. It was twenty minutes to one. She strained her ears to listen. Again she heard it, stronger this time! Low and clear, someone was playing a piano downstairs! "At this time of night!" thought the girl, angrily. "What nerve!" Almost immediately a new note was added, a womanis voice, pure, sweet, contralto -humming! Linda felt as if icy fingers clutched her throat! Realiza- tion struck her. '4There's no woman here except me!', Outside the rising wind screeched and wailed. Somewhere a dog howled once, twice, and was still. The song seemed to express utmost sorrow. It rose to shrill despair and fell to low sobbing lamentation- now louder with wild grief-now softer with subdued mourning-now questioning-now pleading! Unable to lie there another moment, Linda arose and slipped into her robe. Opening the door, she stealthily padded down the hall and descended the creaking stair. In the reception hall she paused at the music room door. Clear and lovely the liquid notes poured melodiously from that room. Fascinated, her heart pounding madly and her hands trembling, she reached for the knob, fearful of what she would see. The door squeaked harshly as she pushed it back, and a cool, dusty draft nearly choked her. Dimly out- lined against long French windows stood a grand piano. Seated there was a most exquisitely lovely girl, begging, imploring with her glorious voice and wordless song to Frank Jeffries who stood grimly near! A window was open and heavy draperies swayed gently, but the glow cast by a great many candles about the room was steady, even, and did not flicker. Then a dust particle caught in Linda's throat, and she coughed. Instantly, with a wild screech, a great wind blew through the window and suddenly the room was in darkness! The door crashed against the startled girl's face, and she uttered a shrill, piercing scream. Faintly she heard Phil clatter down the stairs. "Linda,', he cried, "what are you doing down here! You're white as a ghost! Do get back to bedf' As he helped her back upstairs, she told him what had happened. "Nonsense," he laughed. "You were dreaming. I hope you haven't awakened Uncle Frank." Nevertheless, he stayed with Ujonrizzuefl on Page 391 ,, - BY DONALD WINTIN ENGLISH vue 18 RUN -AWAY HEIRESS fBASED ON A NEWSPAPER srorzrj Frank Howe Terril was pacing the Hoor. Left to right-right to left-he had paced floors for years in every sort of situation. He knew the ropes. He paced when his breakfast was late, when his valet did not run up the stairs four at a time, and when his daughter Nancy did not carry out his exacting whimsies. His present pacing concerned Nancy. Drat it! Why must she act this way? Wasn't it enough that he had to be both father and mother to her? She was old enough now to have a little sense. This wasn't the first time she had gone away like this. Oh, of course, the other times didn't really matter. His private detectives had been too quick. She should realize how he felt about it. She was going to inherit the Terril estate some day. But this was different. He somehow felt that this was serious. She was gone and would not return. He felt sick. Then there was that Frederic person. He had been loitering around the place for some time now. The study window on the second floor offered an excellent View of the yard below. Oh, he had seen them. Fred- eric would cross the field to the west and hide on the far side of the hedge. Nancy would come out in an amaz- ingly short time and busy herself with watering the fiowers. Of course, it was pure accident that her watering tasks took her nearer and nearer the hedge behind which Frederic, or Freddie as she called him, was hiding. If he were not near-sighted, he would have been certain that a hurried kiss was exchanged. But he preferred not to accept the horrifying testimony which his eyes offered. Then they would pass, hand in hand, from his vision, and he would go to his chair and fret and fuss. Ever since Freddie had unexpectedly glanced up and caught him looking at them, he had imagined all sorts of things, Freddie pleading with Nancy, asking her to let him take her away. What did Freddie call him? 4'Old Hawk-Eye," probably. As soon as he had discovered that Nancy was not on the grounds, the three Terril cars had been dis- patched on a now customary errand. Nancy was always running off like this. First it was with Harold, then with Vance, then Berkwell, then Tom, and now Freddie. His detectives had always intercepted them. Reverend Lane's wasn't far. Nancy had always been very, very certain that white-haired Reverend Lane would marry her. His traditional summer wedding gift was a tall, refreshing glass of lemonade, and he always kept pitchers of it on hand. Frank Terril went to the window. One of the cars was entering the drive. He could not tell if it held Nancy and Freddie. What if the driver had been too late? But he must not think of it. He could hear someone entering the house. Whether it was one person or more, he couldn't tell. A polite knock at the door, then Nancy and Freddie entered. Nancy was crying softly, and Freddie was manfully trying to hold back the tears. He attempted to speak to Nancyis father, but no sound came. He had prepared a little speech as they sped back in the car. He was going to tell '4Old Hawk-Eye" that he had no right to interfere with Nancy's happiness. He was going to be bold and ride the proverbial white horse to slay his love's enemies. But his dry tongue and rebellious lips would not form the words. Franklin Howe Terril was a benevolent man. Thus it was that in a few moments the difficulty was smoothed over. Nancy, age five, and Freddie, age six, had promised never again to go so far for a glass of lemonade. UN TIME-1:10 The train despatcher at the Rochester, New York, depot stepped out on the runway apron of the station platform and glanced westward. The first sec- tion of the eastbound Twentieth Century Limited was due at 1:10 A. M. It was then nearly BY 1:09. He could not hear her yet, but ROBERT BURFORD he knew the tiny dot of light far down ENGLISH Vue the track to be the headlight of the Century. As the train advanced through the night, the spot grew stead- ily larger, and suddenly the railroader became con- scious of the roaring of the huge locomotive as she climbed a slight grade. The twin ribbons of steel began reflecting the beams of amber colored light that was then flooding the station platform, as a spotlight floods with light the stage of a theatre. Then the track began to groan under the steady beat of the swiftly approaching locomotive's mighty seventy-nine-inch drivers. As the great engine came nearer, the ground trembled. Down the heavy rails came the huge Hudson-type loco leaving the miles stretching out behind her and her precious load of Pullmans through Buffalo, Erie, Cleveland, Toledo, South Bend, and the La Salle Street Station in Chicago where she started. Since leaving Chicago at 3:30 P. M. the twelve Pullmans had rolled over six hundred sixteen miles of track. Accompanied by a deafening roar the long, heavy train bore down on the despatcher like a projectile out of the night. Every second brought the rushing levia- than of the rails ninety feet nearer until the wide con- crete runway apron suddenly spread out on her left as the train entered the station at Rochester. He instinc- tively retreated closer to the office door as the massive throbbing locomotive thundered past. He waved a hasty greeting to the lanky fireman leaning out of the cab window up above. In a split second the despatcher caught a blurred view of the Icgntinued on Page 391 1 I' ' ' 1 LAWNXMU ER A DI Dad had only mentioned, that fatal morning at breakfast, that it was time to plant the dahlias and that the grass was growing very well in the front yard, BY when mother exploded the bombshell JOHN THOMAS -a remark which I thought very un- ENGLISH Va necessary at the time. "Oh yes," she said, "the grass is growing very well since we put those 'Please' signs up in the front yard, almost too well, and, John, if you have nothing in particular in mind for this morning, I thought-" She needn't have gone any farther for I knew ex- actly the little scheme that all too quickly was forming in her mind. So I hastily replied, 6'Oh-er-oh yes! I do have something planned, though. You see, ,lim and I are- are going on a-a hike, pretty soon now, in fact, right away!" I had hastily folded my napkin and had found that the nearest exit was the back door. I rose, swal- lowed a large piece of toast with tearful results, and said, with all the sincerity I could muster, "I think I hear Jim calling for me now!7' This, of course, was not true as Jim had never been known to be the type that called for anyone. He had the most courteous habit of knocking-an act I could never quite perfect. HI think Iill go." 'flust a moment!', said my father, looking all of his six feet two inches he was in his stocking feet. "You'll listen to your mother before you go parading down the street to ,lim's. Whatever she wants done, you do it, and listen to what she has to say." As if I could do anything else, I thought to myself with quite a noticeable sigh of defeat. Feeling, all in all, like a caged bird, I slowly raised my apparently heavy eyelids toward by mother's face which in every way looked the defiance I felt. I heard her remark fin what she imagined to be her most pleasant wayl, "Go work off some of your vim and vigor, dear, and resist the call of the wild for the lawn mower this morning? Down the back walk I went-my destination, the garage and the lawn mower. I believe at the time, I'm sorry to say, that I even tried to kick Mrs. Collins' pet cat, Marlene, as she sunned herself on the cement in front of me. I would have succeeded, too, had not Mrs. Collins, fearing the worst, called her little darling home. Lucky cat! One last glimmer of hope sailed through my brain. Perhaps the lawn mower was lost. Maybe I had left it out in the Browns' back yard last fall and had never gone after it. If that were so, then of course neither I, nor any one else, could mow the lawn for at least a week or so. However, if I had had any such thoughts of losing our lawn mower they were immediately drowned by the opening of the garage door and the finding of not only our lawn mower, alone, but that of the Browns' also, sitting peacefully side by side in the corner, seemingly to gloat at me in the most mocking manner as if to say, 'gI'Iave you ever been fooled?', Taking a deep breath, closing my eyes, using my best will power, I grasped the "thing" by the neck, pulled it forward and out of the door, and began to cut the quiet, unsuspecting poor little blades of grass, beginning, as it was, a new summer. IMPHESSING THE FAMILY I had just purchased a new hat. How proud I was of my new possession! Immediately upon its arrival, I took it to my room to try it on. It looked very beautiful, I thought, with its attractive streamer down the back. Oh, how wonderful to possess a new hat! With a very broad grin I tried it on. My, but it was becoming! It added such a grown-up air to my ap- pearance. Wasnit it funny what a mere hat could do? With my head held high, I paraded with much dignity down stairs where the rest of the family had gathered. I felt that they couldn't help but be im- pressed. Glancing up from the book he was reading, my brother, Paul, exclaimed, "Huh, whereid you get that? What is it, a hat?" This drew the attention of the other members of the family, who hastened to express their opinions concerning my new head gear. 'f0f course it's a hat, the very latest Paris creation!', I sputtered. 4'What does it look like?" That is where I made my mistake. It was just like touching a match to a haystack. "That's what I'd like to know," remarked Virginia. 4'What does it look like?,' I glared at her. This only seemed to delight the family circle more. 'cDon't you thee, Thinneyf, lisped Ruth Ellen, uthe's mathquerading ath a baby for Halloween. Thee the ribbonth down her back." "Why, Ruthie, anyone can see that isn't a Hallo- ween costume," broke in big brother Robert. I began to think I had found a friend among this band of art- less children, but not for long. uAnyone with any sense," he continued, "could see that she was wearing it to scare the rats and mice awayf, "Well, if it scares them as much as it does me, we'll soon be rid of them," remarked John. "I thought at first she was Dracula's daughterf' "Dracula,s daughter, hali' exclaimed Elizabeth. 'LShe looks more like the bride of Frankenstein? By this time I was furious. I turned around and rushed back to my room. Again I looked at myself in the mirror. My, but that old hat looked terrible! Why had I let those heartless people spoil my new purchase for me?

CURRY ENGLISH vue Dusk is falling, A soft, misty dusk, As I sit at my open window. From somewhere in the hazy distance An enchanting melody Comes to me, Drifting On the wings of the night- A clear, haunting melody That speaks gently of the past And is full of promise For the future. And, lo, the song is ended! Yet the sweet strains of the music Keep vibrating In the silent dusk, Echoing And reechoing Upon my soul. SNUWFLAKES MARGARET MILLER ENGLISH Ia Like soft and fluffy feathers The tiny snowflakes fall .lust to land upon the ground And on my garden wall. I love to watch their beauty As they float down from the sky And wish that I were one of them Who come from way up high. How many people have they seen With cold and aching feet? How many children have they cheered As they tumbled to the street? But tiny snowflakes do not tell The things they've seen and doneg They just lie still upon the ground Till they're melted by the sun.

The darkened clouds infringed with white, Are lightened with the silvery light. A moonlit path falls on the stars In the heavens, so far! so far! The stars are dimmed, as if some hand Had passed o'er all, so that the land Might see the brilliance without mar, 0'er all the earth, so far! so far! It seems to me the autumn moon Is much too lovely to leave so soon. Yet beauties passed, the lovelier are, Richer in memory, by far! by far!

X if 1 3 Wi Emerging victorious four times, piling up ninety points to its opponents' seventy-two, tasting de- feat in three games, and tying in one game is the season's record for the Tech gridiron battlers. The team was coached throughout the schedule by Coach Robert L. Ball, who was aided by his valuable assistant, Wayne E. Rhodes. Tech scored victories over Richmond, Muncie, Manual, and that old rival-Shorb ridge. The Technical eleven started its season on top of Bottom row Kleft to rightj: ,lohn Higginbotham, Tommy Wfilson, James Wechsler, Charles Howard, Pete laria, James Weaver, Darrel Thomas, and Robert Teen. Middle row: Marshall Campbell, Fred Ball, Robert Marshall, Keith Jones, Don Bostic, N. ,loe Crawford, Joe Kirsch, Norman Linne, Earl West, Wayne Goodman, and Frank Mitchell. Top row: Reserve Coach Warren E. Cleveland, Head Coach Robert L. Rall, ,lack Stoelting, Charles Morse, Arthur Beldon, Carl Hartlage, John Johnson, Leslie Flick, C.

Rhodes. the ladder by drubbing the Richmond Red Devils, 26 to 0, September twenty-fourth, in a feature game played on the Tech gridiron. The Green tumbled the complete height of the ladder, however, in the next game on October first, receiving a stunning 26fto-0 setback by Jefferson of Lafayette in a night game played on the out-of-city field. The next contest was staged on the Eastside gridiron October eighth. The outcome of the tilt enabled the Techmen to boast a 13-to-7 victory over the Bearcats of Muncie. Tech piled up two touchdowns in the first half to take the lead which resulted in victory. Muncie threatened several times in the last half, but the strong and decisive Green team held, symbolic of Technical play. Manual was the first intra-city team to oppose the Tech gridmen, October fifteenth. The Green again marked up a win in the victory column by crushing the Redskins, 26 to 6. The spelling of defeat for the Red- skins was the worst in the series since 1923. Two scintillating long runs featured the annual renewal of rivalry between the two schools. Norman Williams, stellar Redskin fullback, took a punt on his own forty and raced sixty yards for Manual's only touchdown. As the first quarter was drawing to a close, Tommy Wilson, Green quarterback, caught an enemy kick on his own twenty-four, and with the aid of his blocking teammates, sidestepped several would-be tacklers and raced the remaining seventy-six yards for a goal. Again in the first half, Tech thrust with sudden decisiveness to score another touchdown, this time the pigskin being carried by 'Harry Adkins. James Weaver penetrated the enemy wall to score twice in the last half, bringing the final score to 27 to 6. Scheduled next on the seasonls card was an intra- city series contest, this time the battle being waged on the Tech field with the F ightin' lrish of Cathedral, October twenty-second. A scoreless tie was the result of this clash, both teams extending their glory to the highest. The next tilt, on October twenty-ninth, was one of importance for Tech as the outcome was to decide whether Technical or Anderson would hold second place in the North Central Conference standing. Ander- son emerged victorious, the Indians twice plunging over the Green line. The final score was 12 to 0, Tech being the loser. The succeeding game marked a wind for the Wash- ington Continentals, November fifth. The Continentals fought for a 21-to-19 victory over the Techmen. Fol- lowing the first play of this game, Charles Howard, Tech sophomore halfback, raced eighty yards with the ball tightly tucked under his arm to cross the goal line. Washington scored all of its points in the first half, the Tech aggregation fighting to gain a foothold, but failing. The last game of the season was a joyous one for Technical, as the team triumphed over that old rival- Shortridge. This battle for supremacy of the gridiron took place in the Butler Bowl on November twelfth before a crowd of approximately ten thousand enthu- siasts. Tech crossed the goal line in the second half to mark up the only touchdown of the game. Tommy Wilson punted to the Blue Devil ten-yard line, where a fumble by Shortridge was recovered by Tech. The Tech forward wall, which played exceedingly good football throughout the game, opened up a gaping hole, and Charles Howard rushed through, the pigskin tucked tightly under his arm. RESERVES A 7-to-6 victory over Southport at the Tech field, October seventh, opened the successful season experienced by Coach Warren E. Cleveland's reserve squad. On October fourteenth, Joe Crawford and Robert Burns led the Green team to a 13-to-O setback for the Manual Redskins here. Cathedralls lrish next fell victims to the Tech victory march on October twentieth, as the B-team, led again by Crawford and Burns, dropped the Northsiders by a score of 7 to 6, away from home. At Shortridge on October twenty-eighth, the re- serves were handed their first defeat, 10 to 7.

The Tech doubles team-Moore and Monger- captured the doubles title by outclassing Lancaster and Decker of Jefferson, 6-0, 6-1. Earlier the Green and White pair stepped Dodson and Gust of Logansport, 6-4, 6-2, and downed Gilpen and Clark of Muncie, 6-4, 6-0, in the semi-finals. b The N. C. C. tennis tourney was the only fall match for Coach Robert L. Ball's netmen. LINKSMEN e . The Technical linksmen, under the tutelage of Coach Bayne D.

A graduate of Franklin College, Mr. Scott taught varsity basketball during two successful seasons at Huntingburg. I CROSS CUUNTRY SQUAD Coach Paul E. lVIyer's ,Green and White cross country squad closed its season with a rush to complete a Very successful campaign. The individual perform- ances of Elias Poulos and Ralph Monroe were high- lights of the season, Poulos either winning or tying Monroefor first place in every meet. Monroe finished below second on only one occasion in dual meets. A well-balanced Ben Davis team dropped the Green barriers in the opening meet at Tech, October fifteenth, 26 to 29, ,despite the fact that Poulos and Monroe fin- ished one-two. October twenty-second the local cross country squad defeated Wiley of Terre Haute here, 27 to 28, and a week later, October twenty-ninth, repeated the victory at Wiley, this time to the tune of 24 to 31. , The Green came through with Hying colors in the final scheduled meet, thumping Washington's harriers, 24 to 31, at the Eastside course. Poulos and Monroe deadlocked for first place in the season's best time, 8:04. ln a "post-season" affair, an invitational meet at Muncie, the Techmenlfinished second to North Side of Fort Wayne, the. score being 32W to 42M-2. Muncie and Richmond were the other schools competing in the four-way meet. ' Poulos again tied for first place, Monroe finishing fourth. The time, 7:37, was exception- ally fast for the 1.6 mile course., V O CIRLS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION One of the requirements for freshman girls of Tech is a course in physical education so that the girls will be able to start their high school career with strong, healthy young bodies and the knowledge of safety and health habits. This course is generally enjoyed by all because of the definite goal toward which to work and the receiving of awards. Abilities in almost any type of athletics may be de- veloped by each girl in this department. Grace and bodily poise may be obtained through the classes emphasizing various dances. Individual games make up a great part of the daily routine, such as volley ring, cage ball, badminton, shuffle board, basketball, volley ball, baseball, tennis, and ping pong. Archery is taught to girls in Gym III and above. The knowledge of safety is also learned during the course of the semester. Girls, Play Day, held Supreme Day, is the time when all girls are given a chance to compete for honors in sports in which they are outstanding. Ribbons are awarded for first, second, and third places. Pin awards are given to girls who have received three hundred and fifty points or more. After a girl has ac- cumulated three hundred and fifty points, she is awarded a bronze pin. She receives a silver pin for seven hundred points, and a gold pin for one thousand points. Points may be obtained by participating in extra- curricular activities such as baseball, volley ball, tennis, hockey, basketball, and badminton. An outstanding player may receive one hundred points. For participa- tion and regular attendance, twenty-five points are given. BUYS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION Tech realizes that a healthy body is as important as a healthy mind, and therefore concentrates no little effort toward the promotion of health among Tech stu- dents. The boys' physical education classes offer every freshman a chance to start early in his high school career to build a sound body. Every freshman is re- quired to take one credit in physical education. When the weather is warm, the boys meet on the athletic field where they play such games as tag, foot- ball, softball, and socker. The thinly-clad freshies also run the quarter-mile track and cross country course. In winter they tumble, play basketball, box, and wrestle. Each boy is required to keep his locker clean and take a shower each day at the end of class. Through their exercises, the freshies cultivate health habits which stay with them for many years. PIANIBLI ' RCU Il THE Pl. C.T. C. Under the guidance of Staff Sergeant Chester A. Pruett, Sergeant Harry E. Smith, and its thirty- nine cadet officers, the R.O.T.C. unit has mustered its strength and efficiency as quickly and completely as possible. WITH After a short period of organiza- WILLIAM tion, in which the Hveteransf' were JACKSON assigned to their platoons, and the 'frookiesw were organized by themselves, there followed a long period of intensive drilling in preparation for the Armistice Day parade. On Armistice Day, Nov , unit, seven hundred and twenty strong, took part in the an- nual parade in tribute to those who gave their lives in the service of their country, and made a good showing. This parade completed the outside work for the winter, and now the unit is inside studying the many subjects offered under its course of study. The Fathers' and Sons, banquet was another high- light in the unit,s calendar this semester. It was a great success, giving promise of greater affairs in the future. A play on the program which followed the dinner was "Three in the Dark," given by some -of the cadets. This year has seen a wide range of activities Within the unit. The cadet officers assisted at the football games by keeping the stands quiet and orderly. On the night of Open House, the entire unit was on hand, the boys acting as guides and assistants. Many comments as to the efficiency of its work were gathered from this occasion. The R.O.T.C. boys have been assisting the traffic force in eliminating the running during the lunch periods. The one hundred forty-seven non-commissioned of- ficers are doing their part in putting the unit on top. They have a responsible piece of work to do because they can see and correct many mistakes which might escape the eyes of an officer. They are the elements around which all organizations are formed and as such, they hold an important position in the unit. Many changes have been made in the administra- tion and organization of the unit. The cadet officers are depended upon more both in drilling and teaching. The purpose of the unit, this year, is to develop the general initiative and qualities of leadership in all its cadets. The cadets have discarded their pistol belts and are now wearing leather garrison belts. These belts im- prove the appearance of the unit greatly. Recently Sergeant Pruett promoted seventy-three boys to private-first class. This is the first time in the history of the unit that this has been done. SERVICE flfontinued from Page 51 does much to determine the ideals and standards of its members. If the name of Tech is to be handed down to the thousands of incoming students as one worthy of acclaim, it is this spirit of service that will be basically responsible for such recognition. THE MYSTERY UF THE MUSIC BCCM fContinued from Page 17l her until she finally dropped off to sleep, then sat by the window until morning. Twice he thought he heard noises downstairs, but he credited it to an overworked imagination. Early the next morning they went down together. No human being was in sight. Dust covered every- thing. The music room door was closed and locked, but beside it the dust had been rubbed away Where some- one had fallen. The outside door stood open wide. "Yoo-hoof? they called, 'fUncle F rank!" "Hoo," answered an echo, uFrank!" Side by side they investigated every room. There Was no sign of human habitation in the thick covering of dust. Exchanging alarmed glances, they dashed up- stairs, found their bags, piled them into the old Ford which stood ready in the road, and started back to Creighton. When Aunt Nelle returned, they told her of their strange adventure. "You've been reading ghost stories," she laughed. "But how could you know that the people thereabouts say each night that the moon is full and the clouds are thick, Marianne haunts the music room to beg Frank to take her back." "But, about Uncle Frank-,', Linda protested. "Don't be silly, children," Aunt Nelle commented grullly. 'fPerhaps you donit remember, you were so young and frightened by your parents' deaths, but you have no Uncle Frank! He died only a week after your parents. He is buried by Marianne in the little ceme- tery on the hillli' CONTEST WINNERS fContinued from page 331 The Short Story winners, English VII to VIII, Helen Pennak, first place, Donald Wintin, second, Margaret Fargo, third, Dorothy Daniel, honorable mention.

The clickety-clack of the trucks as they sped over a rail joint beat a steady rhythm against the stillness of the night. Twelve long dark Pullmans rolled by, all filled with sleeping pas- sengers.

C!-IS ATTACK A fog, dun hued, a hazy mist, Crept low, a spreading shroud, While staunchest faces blanched at this Encroaching man-made cloud. One man broke from the battle line And ran with terror's stride, Down wind he went-not fast enough Down wind-for there he died. But first he stumbled through the trench, Floundering in the mire, Forced to breathe the deadly stench, His lungs and brain on tire. His gasps of pain from blasted sight And prayer to God for death Reechoed through the thunderous night, While he sobbed and caught his breath. He covered his face with slimythands, And fell-he could not run. He died--and now his memory stands In hallowed martyrdom. I ' BLAINE FLICK, English VIIc.
