IF IT IS TRUE that we are the heirs of all our yesterdays, then ancient Greece was the richest of our ancestral benefactors. She was the mother of science, of literature, of drama,-of philosophy, of mythology, and of the arts. She was the founder of democracy, which we today know for our richest treasure. She invented athletics which have evolved into our Olympic Games, and also our favorite everv-dav
pastimes. She furthered man’s knowledge of the soil, of the sea, of life, and of man himself.
In the Greek Era, man strove for the ideal by developing patriotism and courage, by searching for all types of beauty and knowledge, and by learning to appreciate both natural and man - made creations. This was the Greek way of life — this is our way of life.OOKATIOK
Mr. Criswell was bom in St. Joseph, Missouri, and as a boy spent many afternoons swimming and fishing in the Missouri River. Later, in Central High there, he became very interested in track; so interested that he exceled greatly in this sport. After graduating, when he decided to get more education, he found it wasn’t easv; and only by barl cring and doing odd jobs was lie able to put himself part way through Missouri University. Here he was considering being a chemical engineer, but expenses became tcx» great and he was forced to leave.
Later, at Arnold Normal School (now New Haven University), he made up his mind to Income a physical education instructor. He feels gratefully indebted to I)r. Arnold, who influenced him in this choice.
At Rutgers Mr. Criswell earned his B.A. and .Vl.Ed. Aside from physical education, he is also qualified to teach English, science, and biology! Nevertheless. “gym" is his first choice, and since Arts first opened its doors, he has remained with us as our gym teacher. Character, as well as physical fitness, are of major importance to him, and from his first day here, he has tried to develop these in his students. Each year the Criswell Award (named in his honor) is given to the best all-around athlete in the graduating senior class.
For all his years of fine and sincere work, we, the students of Arts, feel honored to dedicate our yearlx ok to him—small tribute though it l e in comparison to what he has given us.

"Perfect wisdom hath four parts, viz.: wisdom, justice, fortitude, and temperance. "—Plato. In this quotation we may see Dr. Scamstcr. the man who, during his ten years at Arts High, has l een devoted to the cause of trying to help each student acquire wisdom. Tin's interest does not suddenly cease when the 2:35 bell rings for dismissal; it is never-ending. We students at Arts have, under Dr. Seamster's guidance, an opportunity to obtain a type of wisdom which our text books alone can never give us. a type of wisdom that, of necessity, must come from a wise individual—from such a man as Dr. Seainster.

Socrates said that there was one only good, namely, knowledge; and one only evil, namely, ignorance. Mrs. Geller has tried to discourage the evil, ignorance, which is present in all groups of people. Knowledge which casts out ignorance is not merely a matter of knowing who our sixteenth President was or how to conjugate a Latin verb; it is the path to an understanding of justice, right, and human nature. Mrs. Geller has tried to instill in students not only knowledge of what is evil, but also a knowledge of what is good and right . . . the knowledge so vital in today’s world.Miss Fortunato, Dr. Seamster's secretary, looks over the shoulder of Miss Hayes, chief administrative clerk, who is reviewing high school transcripts for our seniors.Mom TH $ HOOL

No culture is complete without the propagation not only of knowledge, but also of wisdom.
Any well-read person is capable of spreading knowledge. He can expound the benefit of learning, the beauty of life, the rhythm of music and the grace of art.
Wisdom, however, requires an expert. He must exemplify the importance of life and the strengthening of character in addition to intellectual power.
The Greeks had their philosophers to do this. They were such men as Aristotle and Socrates. We today have our teachers who do the same for us. They, as well as the philosophers, will be remembered not only because of what they do, but also because of what their students accomplish.F A VLT y

‘The Mikado”, an operatic comedy by Gill ert and Sullivan, ran an unprecedented three evenings because of its great popularity. If Academy Awards were given for high school productions, the music, art, and sewing classes would certainly l e among the recipients. All participants have gained a priceless experience from producing the operetta.

The Freshman Orientation, which is sponsored each term by the Student Council, is of great assistance to the freshmen and to other newcomers to the school. The program consists of an assembly at which representatives of the various chibs and activities inform the students about the mechanics of their organizations. It is followed by dancing and refreshments for the newcomers and Student Council members in the girls’ gym.Flt
You are now a freshman at Arts Hig}i. This is a big time in your life and it’s up to you to make a success of it. If you are to do this, you must make up your mind to dispel the myths that have been running through your head. Myths like
“High school is slavery,...leathers are
beasts," and “Only a mental giant passes Geometry III" are just propaganda.
In ancient Greece mvtlis were a part of the daily life. But you must remcm-ber that the Greeks used the myths of gods, and heroes as an incentive to better themselves and beautify their lives. Cherished in our museums to-day are myths depicted on vases, captured in beautiful pieces of sculpture, or painted on canvas.
Believing that the gods were physically and mentally perfect, the people tried to make themselves as perfect. The result was an age that produced some of the most beautiful art, literature, music, and language, the influence of which is still felt in our culture.
You, therefore, must try to do as the Greeks did. Build and develop your minds, standards, reasoning, and knowledge so that you may lx- a credit to your school and community.HOME BOOM 206 Miss Gladys Howard

"Oh, no, I'm running out of piano!’’
The January concert with its 250 participants was extremely entertaining and was a financial success as well.
The highlight of the evening was a piano solo. “Rhapsody in Blue.” hv Trina Guardi. Under the direction of Mr. Pesile. the Orchestra served as her accompaniment. The Band, conducted by Mr. D’Amico, played selections from the "King and I". Mrs. Shapiro led both the Chorus and the Girls' Glee Club which sang, among other selections, “Psalm 150” and “Serenade,” respectively.
"Don’t blow too hard or well lose the music.'
Mrs. Shapiro searches for the lost chord.
"Get that wrong note out of there!”
“Do you exf cct me to pick the right notes out of the air?”SOM-IOMOKS
Through the ages man has tried to express himself in many different ways. These expressions served as an important outlet for his emotions. At first they were disorganized and crude; but they gradually evolved into the arts of civilization. These arts, these expressions, took form in music, art, literature and the dance. They are as varied as human nature itself.
The Greeks were cultured people, given to indulge often in the arts, as they knew them. Thus they created some of the most dynamic works of literature and art preserved from past history.
Here at Arts High we explore and learn not only about the arts of our own present day, or about the arts of our own nation, but also about the arts of all humanity; for in the expression of our emotions through this media we are all one, striving for a common goal, regardless of country, race, or century.4

Greek history has contributed greatly to our own. The democratic government which originated in Greece is the basis for our own government. Because our forefathers believed in the democratic principles, they gave up the protection of an old country to begin anew.
Our own history runs somewhat parallel to the history of Greece, for, just as she split in two, we separated, for a time into two sections with different aims and ideals. But, unlike Greece, we regained our strength in unity.
Also parallel is one's own history. As Theseus united the boroughs of Attica we have united our study, activity, and pleasure into a harmonious life.
But our personal history has only started and if we remember the Grecian democracy and our own country’s unity, ours must Ik a successful one.HOME ROOM 113 Ml Ruth Abos

One 01 tl»e greatest influences upon us is literature. Newspapers, magazines, texts and other books all contribute to enriching our lives.
The Greek writers created the best known literature of ancient times. Herodotus wrote the first history book which gave us authentic glimpses into the life of ancient Greece. When Socrates taught his ageless philosophies, his words were immortalized in books.
Only through the writings of others do we gain the knowledge that links the past to the future.

DOROTHY NEUSS B.S., M.A. — English
"For the girls in our family, school teaching seems to strike the right note.” says Mrs. Neuss, who was lx)rn Dccem-lx r 1, in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Her interests have always coincided with her teaching, for she is quite a reader. She has always liked "ballet and music, especially symphonic music." (Have we a "longhair" in our midst?) After graduating from Hattin High, Elmira College and Montclair State Teachers College, where she obtained her B.S. and M.A., she “substituted for a long while” and then became a regular teacher. When she came to Arts, she found it was easy to correlate English with the other arts because of the special music and art opportunities offered here, and, ever since, Mrs. Neuss has found her teaching “very rewarding."
JAMES W. LOWRY
B.S., M.A. — Science
Mr. Lowry calls himself “an old, worn out, broken-down teacher" who, even though he has received many outside offers. continues teaching “only because 1 like people so much.” Actually, he is one of the most active, humorous, and enthusiastic individuals on the Arts High staff. He was bom on December 23 in Pennsylvania, and in later years, majored in music at Columbia where, in 1925, he obtained an M.A. At first, though, he thought he would lx? “a chemical engineer, but changed to a medical course, only to find three years were added to the required training!” It was then he decided, with the influence of his college professor. Dr. Stewart, to become a teacher. After graduation, he taught music but “it finally got on my nerves; I couldn’t stand it.” and so he took up high school sciences, which he has continued to the present day. Mr. Lowry has an avid interest in photography and ham radio—in fact his speed in sending Morse code is t x fast even for the Pentagon! When his son was in service, they used to communicate by radio to each other ever) day. Quite ingenious, no?PATRICIA ANDERSON

Tin's is the climax of a great occasion. The amphitheater is filled to the point of overflowing as you enter to take your place. A festival of your life is to he presented. The chorus begins with a comedy. You laugh as you recognize the prancing ogres and masked giants as your past fears and difficulties. A tragedy brings forth the failures that you would rather forget and changes them into moral lessons so that you realize what you have gained in experience and wisdom.
At the end it is the custom to judge which play is the best. But how can you judge? For all these things: failures, struggle, work, and experience have equally contributed to your growth into a mature person, a good citizen, a Senior in Arts High.A VISOfcS

72After the clay is over, and all the work is through, man must put aside his concerns and pressures to enjoy himself in play. This is an essential part of his make-up. The ancient Creeks had their gods, and many there were, to lead them as they banded together for sport, drama, music, and art. To them physical expression and perfection were of utmost importance—thus we see Apollo, the sun god and athlete, Diana, the huntress, and Terpischore, the Muse of Dance, sharing high places of regard. Aside from serious play, there was also a lighter, facetious type of the Bacchus nature. Yet, the more intellectual play was not neglected, as shown from the splendid Comedies and Tragedies, poems and books ana works of art preserved through the centuries to our present
Even though people today don’t worship gods such as Terpischore or Diana, still they relieve earnestly in what the gods of past history stood for.
At Arts the varied clubs stand for one form of good entertainment. And through them, as did the Creeks, we grow in health, character, and happiness.STA k W

While the ancient Greek Olympic Games were held for the honor and amusement of the Olympian Gods, their primary purpose was to instill a love of friendly competition in the people of the many Greek states who took part in these athletic events.
It is for the same reason that sports are now organized at Arts High: to build up the individual's confidence in his physical capabilities, to instill in him the competitive spirit, which is the key to success both on anti off the field, and to strengthen his body and to quicken coordination between mind and Ixxlv; for sports arc not merely a part of our civilization, they are one means by which we can hold on to our civilization.
In the ancient Olympic athlete’s creed, they promised that win or lose they would do their best. We do not know the words they recited hut their spirit is: “Win if you can, lose if you must, enjoy your victories without lx asting, take defeat without complaining." It is this ideal that governs all sports here at Arts High today.IAS«ALL HAM
