You have probably heard ofthe Headless I-Iorscinaii and the witches

There once lived in the large city of ldlba, llallo WVecn, a beautiful
young girl. who was to be married to Hal Owecn, a boy from the distant
town of New York.
On October 30, 1831, the two families met to discuss the marriage.
All were seated in the living room of the Oween home. .lust before
midnight Hal and Hallo left the room, and as the clock struck twelve,
the parents heard a strange noise. They looked around but could not
find their children.
On October 30, 1832 a child was found on the doorstep of Mr. NVeen.
Around its neck was a locket with the name, Gob Lin Oween on it.
It was at this time, I heard of the case. I went to Elba and looked
at the child. By looking at the picture of Hal Oween, I saw that there
was a close resemblance. I left, and told Mr. WVeen to notify me if
I received a letter on November 1, 1833, from Mr. IVeen, telling me
to go to Elba. VVhen I reached there, Mr. WVeen told me his story.
He told me that on October 30 he awoke just before midnight and found
the baby crying. He picked it up and just as the clock struck twelve,
a force pulled the child away from his arms into the air. As the child
floated out of the room, another entered and landed in his arms. Around
the neck of this one was a locket and the name Gost Oween. I told Mr.
Vlleen that I would be back the next year and departed.
The next year, I had a hard time finding his home as the population
of Elba had increased by 12,000.
I reached Mr. IVeen's home slightly before midnight. Just before
midnight Mr. VVeen picked up the child and waited. As the clock began
striking, a strange silence fell over us. I saw Mr. IVeen tightly grip
the child. A force was pulling the child. Sweat began rolling down
his forehead. Then Mr. IVeen changed color. He was lifted from the
floor and began floating out of the window. His wife grabbed his arm
and floated out with them.
IVhen I recovered from the shock, I found a child in my arms. It
had a locket around its neck which bore the name Ole IVich Oween.
Pinned to the clothes was a note which gave directions to leave the
child with Mr. Oween. I did this and went back home, planning to
come back the following year.
On the following year, I was detained on business and did not reach
the Oween home until slightly after midnight. I knocked on the door,
but no one answered, so I entered. I found no one home. I looked
and saw a note floating around the air. I grabbed it and pulled it toward
the lamp. On it was written "Next year. Maple Lawn Cemeteryft
I found out from the mayor where the cemetery was and went back home.
The next year I took some friends with me. We reached the
cemetery at 11 :44L. We found a good place from which to watch and
waited. At exactly twelve o'clock, we heard a weird song. NVe looked
around and there in the middle of the cemetery, we saw a tombstone
overturn and from the ground a man ascended. Following this man
was a young lady. Behind her came two more couples whom I
recognized to be Mr. and,Mrs. VVeen and Mr. and Mrs. Oween. There
were also three little children. Together they all floated slowly around
the cemetery and again descended.
I later found one of my friends dead and the other is in the Buffalo
School for the Mentally Deficient.
The next year and every other since then, I have gone alone, and the
same thing has happened. I told a few friends about my experiences,
during the last year, and they laughed at me, so I have decided to publish
my experience, as the time draws near, and allow anyone who does not
believe my story to meet me at the Maple Lawn Cemetery on October
30, 1937, on one condition. You go at KUOQU' own risk.

The garden before me was glowing and fair,
And the scents of the flowers were in the air.
There they swayed in the gentle breeze,
IVhile the birds in the bird bath sang with ease.
The violets, blue, and the roses, red,
Come up in their dewy, moist, earth bed.
The sun up above lends its kind light,
So that the green shoots underground might have sight.
Let's not forget the daffodil, who lends its beauty of its own free will.
Morning Glories open their petals wide-
To greet the sun who waits outside,
Let's not forget the garden so fair,
With all its joy and beauty rare.

DESSERT FIRST, IVHY NUT?
Is there anything more trying to one's patience than after eating a
delicious meal to find his favorite dessert set before him with the sad
realization that he is too full to eat another morsel o f food? I think not.
If this is the ease, why not eat dessert first, for this is what we would
like? Upon doing this, we would not have to worry about not eating
too much other food or going without that much-craved dessert.
In this ever-changing, scientific world of ours, one universal ambi-
tion remains unchanged: that is, we still seek that which we want most.
lVhy not apply this to our conventional process of eating? Perhaps,
you will say, "IVhy it would IIOI be proper to eat dessert first, we have
always consumed our dessert last. People would think anyone crazy
who started eating a meal backward." But consider this for a moment
-where would the world be today if no one had dared to take the initia-
tive in starting something new? Those people udio have been looked
upon as crazy by their own generation have often been hailed as either
a genius or a great man by their descendants.
Since this has often been the case, why do not some of you people
who want to become famous with little or no effort begin eating dessert
first, for, in that case, who knows what the future holds in sto1'e for you tl

THE AIVFUL BLUNDER
One day I received information that my family and I were going to
the mountains to spend a week or two, and I had permission to invite a
friend to go with me. I ran to the phone, dialed Dot's number, and
eagerly waited for her to answer. At last, she did, and I was in the
midst of an interesting QI hopej description of all the fun we could
have with swimming, tennis, dancing and the other sports we both enjoy,
when I heard a click-click as the receiver was being lifted off. I said
to Dot, "Are you fooling around with the dial?"
She replied, "Not me! Maybe it's the 'town gossip'."
I then said as loud as I could, "VVell, if it is, I hope she gets an
earful! She's an awfully snoopy old thing, anyway, and if she knows
where we 're going, she 'll tell it all over town., '
Dot was agreeing with me, and we were saying things about her that
ought to have made her ears burn, when we heard a calm and collected
voice saying, "Excuse me, girls, but would you mind hanging up for a
minute? I'm testing this line, as there was a complaint about it. It
will be ready for use in about five minutes. Thank you."
I blushed and said to Dot, "Well, Itm certainly glad we don't have
television because then he'd know who we were, and would I be
embarrassed the next time I saw him !"

THE LAND OF NEVER AGAIN
I am awake. Oh, how glorious it is to be alive! The sun shines
so brightly that my eyes can not get accustomed to my environment.
IVhere am I? This startling question brings me to my senses. I have
never been here before. I am lying on a soft bed of moss, near a rippling
stream. Looking to my left, I can see a small cocoanut grove. Turning
to the right, I see many beautiful flowers, all of which contain some
After stretching on my comfortable bed of moss, and admiring the
wonderful sights around me, I hear a peculiar noise. It is coming from
that cool, refreshing brook. I rise and slowly amble to the brink of the
stream. Peering down into the water, my eyes fall upon tiny goldish,
splashing, and enjoying themselves immensely.
Scanning the water, I notice some beautiful water lilies. They are
arranged very artistically. It seems as though some master of art has
placed them there.
I hear a faint flutter of wings. Looking up toward that pale blue
sky, I can see a whole formation of lovely, white swans. They glide
slowly toward the water. It is truly a sight worth seeing. As the
swans approach the stream, I quietly step back behind a cocoanut tree.
For a short time, I watch the swans as they bathe themselves.
Boom! Boom! Boom! I am startled! I wonder who can be
beating drums near this place. I do not have to wait long, for soon a
long line of tiny savages approaches. I am so awe-stricken that I can
not move. The tiny men are coming nearer and nearer. Soon I am in
their clutches. They are taking me away. I can not possibly escape
from them now. IVe soon reach some sort of settlement. They take me
to the largest of the houses and leave me there. A beautiful white
lady appears and tells the queer little men to tie me to a stake. I know
what is going to happen. The savages beat their drums and dance
around me like wild men. The white lady lights a ire at my feet. I
am almost unconscious. It is getting stuffy! I-Iotter! I-Iotter! Oh!
IVhy did I forget to open my windows before going to sleep?

I was born 111 the year 111111-101111 11lI1l11l'Cl1 t111rty-sc-ve11, 111 tl hugo

After several days, I was packed 111 a Iarge box with 11I111f1I'Ul1S 01?
co111pa111o11s. I was placed 111 a sto1'e1'1111111 w1111 them where it I'GIl121111Pl1

was 1eft i11de1ini1e1y. At night, I XVOIIILI hear squealing, squeaking,
gnawing, and inunching 1111111 my 1ea11 ran 00111.
One day a pretty gir1 came and rescued me. I was p1ace11 1111 a
counter where several children passed 1110 dai1y. Some times I wo111d
be picked up, and t11e11 disappointedly put back because something was
wrong wi111 111e. My 1'Il1J11GI' 11at was round, and they NVELIIAEQCI square

Finally, one day, a 11tt1e boy purchased me. I was taken to sch0o1,
and my toes were 1301111911 by a grinder. My 11at was p1aced in a Iarge
cave, a11d was being chewed by 11uge, w11ite stones. Even HIY pretty
coat was nieked. I wrote Iessons a11d d1'ew funny pictures of a Iady w11o

kept score at bridge games. I became so short that I was thrown into
a wastepaper basket. I Iay there wit11 the saying, in my 11eart, "Live
in hopes, and die in despair."

S1na11 new Ieaves begin to form,
Out in t11e sun1ight, bright a11d warm.
Birds in the trees 1JQgI11 to sing-
IVhy'? Oh, just because it's Spring.
Lawns are green and flowers are gay,
Among them t11e crocus, to brig11te11 t11e Way.
The s1111 above roves through the 0101.11.19-
VVhi1e vio1ets seem to bloom in crowds.
Blue sky above the e1ouds so white-
But no dark c1oud is there in sight.
These a11 are signs t11at Spring is here,
To make the way for another good year.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells!
Santa's on his way,
lVith his pack upon his back
Riding in a sleigh.
Tied in red and green,
Mustn't peek, mustn't speak
,Bout a thing you 've seen.
Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve!
Stockings in a row,
Hurry up, scurry up,
Off to bed we go.
Christmas Day, Christmas Day!
Oh, what fun there 'll be!
We will dance, we will prance
'Round the Christmas tree.

NEWS BEHIND NEVVS
Mike was star reporter for the "Globe," the largest newspaper in
Canton. The entire paper staff was sitting around the editor's desk.
The eyes of each member were glued to the telephone. The editor was
talking in an eager voice. He put down the telephone with a bang and
said excitedly, "The biggest scoop in years, boys. There's been an
airplane crash near Harper. The plane is the 'Eaglef the largest of
the YV. A. Z. lines. There were fourteen passengers and the pilot was
imprisoned in the plane. Get out there quickly and get the news and
The news car was tea1'ing down the highway when, all of a sudden,
Mike said, 'tThere she is, boys." The car came to a stop and everyone
jumped out and ran to the wrecked plane.
Twelve of the passengers were lying on the ground around the
flaming plane. Then came a soft, choking sound and out of the smoke
came a small boy, dragging behind him a young lady. He staggered,
then fell. The boys rushed to the scene. Mike picked up the child and
carried him to the car.
At the hospital the boy was examined, but fortunately his condition
was not extremely critical.
The next morning there was an "extra" on the stands throughout
the nation. The boy, although very young, had saved the lives of
fourteen people. He Was the hero of the entire nation.
Margery Porter '40
School is oft'n a hunnlruin life.
Bringing to each of us its strife.
It lacks the greater part ol' fun,
But we think nothing of this-none.
lYhen school is finished, home we go,
Thinking little of our woe.
lVe sit right down and then relax,
Trying hard to face the facts.
Reiclrt Bo rfon. '38
There are twenty and ten in our school hand,
lYith brass and reeds galoreg
The conductor stands and waves his hand,
lVho could ask for anything more?
The cornets take the melody
lVith a tone so sweet and true.
The elarinets furnish harmony
lVhieh never makes one blue.
The trombones smear from note to noteg
They 're the envy of the band.
The piceollo is easiest to toteg
It's the smallest in the band.
lVe're proud of our two sousaphones,
E flat and Double B.
Our saxophones and haritones
NVould cause much jealousy.
Our drums and altoes are very grand
They keep the tempo in check.
Our uniforms deserve a hand,
Our drum major we just can't neglect.
Lucille K'irkpat1"ick, '38
THE NEXV YEAR
New Year's the awak'ning of a dream.
It brings to us a youthful tho't:
To many people it does seem
That great new fortune should be sought.
Young and old both do resolve,
Generally to make things fine.
The resolutions soon dissolveg
The Way they're kept does seem a crime.
