HAVE you ever wanted to meet a "man of the ages," one existing only in books and in the minds and hearts of the people of this genera- tion? This inclination is not a fancv which will soon fade away to become an obsession, for a thought like this penetrates into one's mind until it becomes a torment. Ever since the dav I realized the importance of a history book I have admired one of the truly great men, Abraham Lin- coln. He fought to preserve the Un- ion for which we are now fighting: he considered the necessity of prov- ing that popular government is not an absurdity. Had not it been for his tragic death, he would have lived to see his dreams materialized. For it seems he'was sacrificed during the time his services were most needed. If he had lived, what would have been his desires for this country, and how could such a seemingly unattain- able goal be reached? Question upon question-could they be answered? They were, or at least, my mind un- derstood to a greater extent this statesman, whose hands had helped to tie together the bonds of a broken nation. N About sunset one afternoon. I lay on my bed letting my eyes wander to the ceiling. At my first glance I saw a rough place in the yellow-lined iwallpaper, caused from the damp weather, but as I continued to stare, my eyes focussed upon something en- wtirely different. The rough place gradually formed into a huge hill, and the lines were paths leading to the top. To my surprise, I was .ascending one of these paths toward aitall, lean, angular man, who seemed to appear from nowhere and walk in Twenty-Iwo. x my direction. Upon reaching me, he gently took my hand, and we started walking to the top, which seemed so far away in the distance. I looked up and completely observed my compan- ion. He wore tails and his face was lean, with many small lines: his hair was 'tousled by the wind. When I finally caught my breath I asked- "And so at last I meet you, Mr. Lincoln? I have come a long way." He nodded with a smile, and that smile transformed his face into one of kindliness, sincerity, honesty, and wisdom! His voice, when he spoke, was not shrill, but low and calm. "Yes, my dear, you have come from a world of war. Oh! will there never cease to be wars! My memory recalls another war. One night many years ago I stood by a window look- ing out at the soldiers marching home, tired and worn. That moment I wanted dreadfully to be a young man again, reading law by pitchpine light with friendliness of the people around me. But Tim waits for no man as its passes sp edily on. Soon I was no longer called "Abe Lincoln of Illinois," but 'President Lincoln." Then out of the stillness of the dawn, cannons boomed, and soldiers march- ed away to fight. These soldiers fought to vindicate the principles of self-government. They knew in their hearts that the conflict would be a lasting one. They fought and died! Homes were broken, leaving only the weeping families! The thing I was forced to do was right, yet it troubled me to the end. . " 'All persons held as slaves within such designated states and parts of states are, and hence forward shall be free! ' "But the land had to be free: the North and South had to be free. These soldiers below my window slunk homeward, doubting victory. My heart felt for the South, and I longed for it to emerge from the deep dark depths of oblivion to hold its head up again. It has been a long, hard struggle, but it overcame this obstacle. My wishes were carried out indirecuy by the leaders who 'fol- lowed in my footsteps. ' "Again to-day a dark cloud has passed over as war emerged from selfishness and desire for power on -the part of so many people. The re- maining people fought because they wanted to protect something dear to them. That something' needs no . ' ' . V,-xi, I. .fxgix-fz, ,ay ...y.v. explanation, K for the' simple Word, freedom, means so much in itself. The names of Bull Run, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Appomattox, shall always ring in my ears as Tarawa, Iwo Jima, Guam, D-Day, Guadalcanal, shall ring in yours. Yet, in our hearts we know- . " 'That, these dead shall not have died in vaing that this nation under God, shall have a new birth of free- dom, and that the government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from this earth? 5' As though some unseen hand had dismissed me, I slowly descended the hillside, and at the bottom I turned and looked up for one last glimpse of this "man of the ages," ,who gave such a clear conception of the pres- ent. He waved when he saw me glance back, and as quickly as he had come he disappeared, for I was staring at the yellow-lined wallpaper on the ceiling. I did meet him, though, if only in adream! Lenore Monnot '45, Rcvcric ON that first day of my Senior A term, I woke with only one thought: I was finally on the last lap of my Senior year. To think that in only a little over four months I should be graduating was almost too much. I sank back on my pillow to enjoy the deliciousness of contempla- tion, only to be interrupted a few minutes later by the sound of Moth- er's voice asking, "Are you never going to get up?" I was so excited I could scarcely dressy but the clock ticked menacingly 'on, and I knew that I must not be late on this of all days. V My arrival at the school was greeted byfa chorus of voices, Senior A voices, welcoming others and my- self into their smug, complacent group. Four years had taken its toll and those who were left had won their places as Seniors with "blood, sweat, and tears." We had at last reached the top and. quite naturally expected all to wonder at the marvel- ous new Seniors. But those' other students of lower rank, walked right' by, quite happily oblivious of our thrilling status, not realizing that our joy could not be drowned by their ignoring- us.

Could I possibly have been as tiny as this swarming mass about me? I thought I had known so much. Could it have been that I too was ignorant of all but thex basic fundamentals? Helping these be- wildered and frightened newcomers was just one of my many added tasks. But oh! what a glorious task it was. Here was my chance to let everyone know that I was a Senior. Here was my opportunity to direct and com- mand, and inwardly 'to wonder at the helplessness of the new generation that was following in thefootsteps of this wonderful Senior class -of mine. Could these wee mites in their pres- ent apparent stupidity ever rise to the station of a Senior possessing all the knowledge that was mine on this first day of my Senior A term. As this class holds elections, and plans for graduation, my thoughts are reaching ahead to the last week of my four years of high school. That week, which will be filled to over- flowing with luncheons, parties, and programs, is the one which all girls dream of. We wonder who will come out first? We wonder who will win the English cup? These questions are foremost in the minds of my class- mates and me as we anxiously await honor day and graduation. The ma- jority of the girls in my class have spent their entire four years at Mc- Main and we are all held together by the bond of human friendship which comes from close association through the years. ' We are the class of '45, and in graduating will separate to go in many directions, moving towards our individual goals. Some will go. on to finish their education in the various universities and colleges of the na- tion. Many will enter the business On Writing Essays . By Mary Nell Dorman, '45 HAVING more than the usual share of wisdom and comprehension, I have taken it upon myself to in- struct those slow minded creatures who compose a large part of my pres- ent English class upon the art of writing essays. Recently I was ask- ed to broadcast my views upon the subject over the Purple Network but decided to postpone my address, not deeming it right to enlighten the world before giving my own beloved classmates of lower mental capacities than myself the benefit of my erudi- tion. So, at this point I shall begin, hop- ing that you will pay the most duti- ful attention to very word. Believe me, great things are in store for you: greater, indeed, than brighter minds could reasonably comprehend. Per- haps, though, you have already read my short stories, poetic works, bi- ographies, and histories, and are al- ready brimming over with uncontroll- able enthusiasm and passionate fer- vor at the prospect of being inspired, and lifted to the- heights of joy by the heart warming style with which I convey even the most d-ull and monotonous facts written by learned men of former ages. Let me, before getting into the heart of the subject, present my views upon the work of the noted essayists of the past. It is the honest and firm opinion of the writer that those essays of Carlyle, Lamb, Hux- ley, and others are too difficult to be read by those of your ability. lf there are passages which you don't understand after looking up the more difficult words in the dictionary I Wm.- ' ' "' 9 ' Fi fil s E" ' I?5i1"fE-Ti Qi' ii i L. tv m..---. ..f-.-., 1 .L U - f - , , . , . . , . . .

Therefore great pains should be taken to achieve such a handshake that will cause everybody to know that the performer has the finestper- sonality ever. This can be done bv observing many people'-s handshake-s and benefiting by their mistakes. First, there is the "Bone-breaking Handshaken. This is usually the greeting from a happy, red-faced gentleman who enjoy-s food and ob- viously eats plenty of it. He will walk up to you, a broad smile on his shining face. and with Aa gentle pat on his back, which leaves you breath- less, he grabs your hand in a vise- like grip and swings it up and down until your face grows pale and your weak admonishings are finally under- stood. For the next four or five minutes, as you slowly regain your former composure, you are besieged by the heroic account of your com- panion's last fishing trip during which he, of course, played the leading role. Occasionally, too. as he pauses in his exciting tale it is up to you to or Nah". Finally. interject "ooh" as his eye falls on another victim. you get another pound on the back and a hearty good-bye. As soon as your companion's back is turned all attention rivets to the hand. You massage it with great care and hope never to meet his kind again. Then there is the "Cold-fish Hand- shake". This greeting is typical of "simply delightful ladies" who, after shaking an uncountable number of hands at their social gatherings simu- ly cease to exert pressure atgall. If you have ever had this gruesome ex- perience you know what an empty, lost feeling you get when expecting a responsive return you suddenly find yourself holding an inanimate object which 'refuses to react at any cost. Finally you drop the hand with an expression of mild disgust, politely mutter "au-revoir" and continue on your way. ' g A handshake that, if you care much about tact and good manners in -so- ciety, will throw you .off your guard completely, is the 'fMight-have-been Handshaken. A hostess at a U.S.O. dance, for instance, comes in con- Twenty-four ' tact with this type only too often. Knowing that a lady should always put her hand out first, she politely extends hers and waits for a response. A few seconds pass and becoming puzzled her gaze rises from a tightly clenched fist up a stiffly starched sleeve to a slightly rounded shoulder and finally to a freshly scrubbed face of a young soldier only to discover his eyes intently observing what the younger generation would call a "slick chick". She withdraws her hand with a patient sigh and moves on to greet another G.I. Joe. There is also the "Ill-mannered Handshaken. Only members of the stronger sex are guilty of this mis- take. Sometimes, when, trying to make a good impression on a lovely lady, he is a little too eager and ex- tends his hand first. The lady whom he is so rudely addressing looks down on him with disdain in her hard eyes and coldly moves away. , Last, but surely not least is the "Correct Handshakeu. This greeting should be the aim of every person. In it is expressed with true sincerity one's happiness and pleasure at meet- ing or seeing again an old friend. The best example of this handshake is the 'strong clasp of a minister who, at peace with all the world, endeavors to extend his true happiness to others. With this thought, I conclude, and I leave it to you, reader, to decide which of these handshakes applies to you. . Georgia Fischer, 45., I n Writing Letters By Barbara Terry, 45 ERRIE, Weezie, Johnny, Dot, Jon- sie, June-golly, shall I ever finish answering these letters? Just as soonas I getone written, another one drops through the mail-slit in the door to the rug beneath, and I begin the cycle all over again. Now, mind you, I'm not complaining 'about re- ceiving mailg it's only the fact that getting a letter means answering a letter, and that alone ,is my com- plaint. E . I don't know why, but every time I sit down to write a short letter, I always end with a manuscript of about :six pages, and a bad case of write1j's cramp. Where I get all the ideas to fill that much space is be- yond me. I often wonder what the person who receives the letter thinks as he contemplates the pages. Does he think, "Oh, joy! Another nice, long letter from Whoozit!" Or does he despairingly remark, "Will she ever quit writing long letters? Now I'll have to sit down and rack my brain to find news enough to answer her." Or is he the third type, whose only remark is, "N'uts!" This is the type of person who never answers letters. This third type includes the person who will never write a thank-you note, because he doesn't know what to say. Anyway, he thinks the send- er of such a beautiful present should know he likes it, so what's the use of going to the trouble of 'writing a thank-you note? After a while he receives no more presents or cards, and wonders what has happened to all his former friends. The more common type in this category, however, is the person who receives a lengthly epistle from a very dear friend whom we'1l call "Ben". Ben begins his letter with, "I haven't heard from you in a long time," and ends with "Write soon," of course expecting a long letter in return. But he doesn't reckon with our dear friend, "the more common type." This person thinks to him- self, "Pd better wait a little bitfbe- fore I write him, so that I can gather some news to make my answer long- er." So he Waits, and week after week passes. Finally, his conscience begins to bother him, and he decides he had better write the thing and get it over with. As he sits at his desk, pen in hand, doubts begin' to assail him and he wonders whether dear old Ben still lives in Detroit. Maybe his firm has transferred him to Kan- sas City. "That's where he was the last time I wrote," he remembers. "Or maybe he's been drafted. He did say something about it in his let- ter. That's it! I-Ie's been drafted! It won't do any good to write to him now. It'll take too long to catch up. I'll just wait till he writes again and tell me his new address." So, his conscience eased by this effort, unsuccessful though it was, he goes blithely about his business. He likes Ben! Surely, he's one of his very best friends. But they've been separ- ' V - Q E-C-H-O-E-S. Q -2' 'f 2 - u . ' , .1 , ' . - f If -- 21:11, F.. -ia an ' 1j'Q---li' ' A' '.

But now let's take 'a look at "poor" Benq Ben is one of those rare per- sons who in their spare moments, further obligate their friends by sending added news in an unreadable scrawl. Never a day goes by that Ben doesn't write a letter, but seldom are his friends as quick in answering him. Because his love of letter writ- ing is known so well, his friends never think of answering him until they have received three or four let- ters. Some, like the person about whom we've just spoken, never answer him at allg but this never bothers Ben. He knows how hard it is for some people to write letters, and how all people love to receive them, so he keeps on writing. There aren't very many people who really appreciate Ben, but the few who do treasure his letters and write to him as often as they can. While I have "dissertated" upon the two extremes in letter writing, I've not mentioned the person who is in between. There really isn't much to say about him, for this per- son, if given enough time, will gen- erally answer all the letters he re- ceives and loves to make new friends numerous to mention in this paper. so that heican write to them ffor a little while at leastl. This character is the average letter-writer, and there we shall let it rest, for every person has his idiosyncracies, which are too In addition to the few general types of letter writer given above, there are many special styles. Many persons, in fact, are in, a class by themselves, but there isn't room in this paper to mention them. I But in' closing let me say that this essay has made me more conscious of my own letter writing, and that of my friends. I wish we could see one an'other's faces, and watch the chang- ing expressions as we read our let- ters. I'm sure it would be a sight to behold. Next time you receive a letter, remember your reaction, and when you meet your friend, compare notes with him as to his reaction when he received one of your letters. I imagine that there would be many surprises if we really did such a thing. And, it might make us more careful of what we say. K V Barbara Terry, '45. E-GH-O-E-S I . ..L.

When the March winds come roaring and capering through the towns, theitrees are covered with verdure, and the dainty spring flow- ers sprightly nod their bonneted heads at each passerbyg a young boy's pockets are' filled with many things-tops and kitestring, but, espe- cially marbles. What a reverie of en- chanting thoughts comes to your mind of those miniature balls of mul- tifarious colored marble, which are not really marble, but glass. Breathes there a man in these United States who has never played an exciting game of marbles, or does not even proudly boast that he once played marbles? Of course, everyone knows that the object of this thrilling game is to knock the marbles out-of the ring. A great majority of the American youths play the commonly known game of "ringers," but there are ap- proximately twenty-Hve other varia- tions of this 'popular game. There are a number of rules, which are often quite as complicated as those in foot- ball, but they vary from time to time, therefore, there is no reason either to confuse or bore the reader here with any complicated instruc- tions on how to win a marble tourna- ment or how to play marbles. You may secure the principal rules from any school boy. We have heard from some old legend, which was told by an an- tiquated yarn-spinner, who is now both obscure in our memory and moldering into dust, that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson M omin g Dorothy Brisbi, '45 The first morning .runbeams slipped b through the trees, As :be sky in the east turned gold. .Rosy-edged clouds in splendor proclaimed The beauty of God for men to 'bebol:l. .

Forthis, reason many Americans probably believe: -fl' that marbles are just as American as the corner drugstore andthe sun- ., dae, but this is not true. The child-'1 - hood game of marbles dates backito' antiquity and is common to all peo- 'A ples. Although the origin is shadow-K fi g, ed with doubt, we 'often find a clue, W if we search diligentlyfand far enough A 'F back into history. , Some have the firm opinion' that - A it was a marble, instead of a pebble, V il that little David used in his celebrat-I ,gigs ed clash with the giant Goliath. Per- K H-if haps this is true. Who can be the 94 judge? Marbles have been found in if the time-defying pyramids of the Egyptian pharaohs. When the Colon- f '31-1 ists landed at Plymouth Rock the .--1-.ig elusive Indians were playing their 'F version of marbles with round stones s in the cool, green depths of the shady forests. Their game was strangely ' similar to the one which our fore- A, fathers had played in merry England ' '31 R,- for an unknown number of centures. Yet, we cannot give the English the ' ' credit for marbles. We do not know 1 who brought the first marbles to . " "Q Britain, but it could easily have been , the stalwart Romans, who were lured '- to Engiand by the white chalk cliffs' in fifty-five B. C. In the highly advanced and civilized 'Roman nation nuts were frequently used for mar- bles. However, we must not assume that the ancient Roman was the father of marbles, because the Mound Builders in the New World placed. marbles, along with their other valued possessions, in their mounds in order to still possess them when they ar- rived at the Happy Hunting Grounds. We, likewise, have proof that the Aztecs of Mexico and the Mayas of Yucatan and Guatemala played mar- bles. You may argue that scientists generally think that the ancestors of the Indians originally came, from Asia, crossed the Bering Straits to Alaska, and gradually roamed and n drifted southward somewhere be- tween twelve thousand and twenty thousand years ago. Every man must have his own opinions, therefore, I merely 'place these crumbling bits of evidence, at, your disposal in order that you finay ' weigh and consider them, and, after' much consideration, make your own - decision concerning this age-old mystery.

Bargain hunting may well be defined as "a transaction or event involving good or bad conse- quences", usually involving the lat- ter. For examplei let us consider the experience of a certain Mrs. Jones. Mrs. Jones rises one bright spring morning without even the slightest notion of what is in store for her that day. Drowsily she picks up the morning news and scans its pages with herhalf-opened eyes. She is in the midst of a very wide yawn, when suddenly something catches her eye 'which immediately stirs her interest. those words which always bring a thrill to the hearts of economic house- wives-"Big Bargain Sale". Thought after thought goes buz- zing through Mrs. Jones's now wide awake brain as to when the store opens, how long it will take to get there, whom to get to stay with the baby, and how much time she has. After quickly glancing at her watch, she heaves a sigh, for that glance' has told her she has but forty-five minutes. Her mathematical mind be- gins functioning and in a few seconds she has conceived that she has to al- low at least twenty-five minutes for the ride to town, leaving the slight sum of only twenty minutes to get ready. The rush is on! She dashes to the phone and after getting the wrong number. and the busy signal several times, she finally gets in touch with the girl next door, who agrees to stay with Junior. To help matters, Junior begins to cry' and after run- ning back to his room, Mrs. Jones finds him on the floor, where he had fallen trying to climb out of his crib. When she has sufficiently soothed him, she hurries to dress. Finally she is ready and dashes out of the house, giving Mary Jane lastminute instructions on how to care for Junior. ' ' ' Mrs. Jones, half lrunning, half walking, makes her way' to the car line. Just as she reaches the stop, a car goes whizzing by, leaving her i 7 Twenzy-six 6 ,,,,, ,.,,, , hi.: f. . 5 standing there a bit disgusted. After a few minutes' Wait, 'she catches the next car. Nervously she glances at her watch every few minutes, won- dering whether or not she will arrive in time. On and on the street car creepsg Mrs. Jones has reached town. Hurriedly she makes her wav down the crowded street, dodging this per- son and running into the next, until she reaches the store which is having the sale. . Just as she reaches the entrance of the store where hundreds of other bargain hunters are waiting to cnt-er, the bell rings and the doors swing open. As a fish is drawn into a wild, spinning whirlpool, so Mrs. Jones is drawn into the even wilder crowd. She elbows her way through as best shecan saying, "Excuse me", in her most polite manner when she has jabbed someone in the ribs fac- cidentally, of coursej. Since the shoe sale, the one which she is interested in, is on the second floor, she has the perplexing problem of getting into an elevator. Several times just as she is about to step into an elevator, the operator calls out in a very sweet tone, "Next car, please !" At last Mrs. Jones success- fully makes her way into an elevator and feebly says, "Second floor, please". Having reached the second floor, she peers around for the shoe tablesi She has now arrived on the outskirts of the crowd surrounding what she has found to be the shoe tables. Since she cannot see the shoes for the crowd, she decides to shove her arm through and grasp whatever shoe she can get her hands on. ' After many unsuccessful attempts to and quite a few embarrassing sit- uations, our Mrs. Jones finally gets hold of a shoe. On examining it she finds it to be her size, the color she wants, and the right style, just the thing for her Easter outfit. But, oh, my, Mrs. Jones then realizes that she has but one shoeg the other must be found. The struggle with the crowd is on again. Attempt after attempt is unsuccessful, but to Mrs. Jones's delight, she finally finds the mate tothe shoe. Now there remains but one prob- lem, that of getting someone to wait on her. What a problem it is, with so many people and so few sales- girls! Mrs. Jones waits, and waits, and waits some more, until finally, -. .. V- f --a, A- ' A' x s. .J . , ,-.i- just before she collapses from sheer exhaustion, a salesgirl comes to her- aid. In a few seconds the package is wrapped and handed to her Kmaybe thrown at ,her would express it bet-' terl. 'Wearily our Mrs. Jones makes her way out of the store, carrying her precious bundle and for the first time in ,hours breathes in some good fresh air. I Having stood up all the way on the street car, Mrs. Jones at last reaches her home in most exhausted condition. Feebly she opens the door and throws her weary self down to rest on the lounge. After relaxing for a few minutes, Mrs. Jones decides to take a good look at her prize pack- age. As she opens the wrapper, thoughts of the wonderful bargain she has found, and how lovely the shoes will look with her new outfit float through her mind. Eagerly she opens the lid of the box, folds back the inside paper, and --1 Mrs. Jones sinks down against the back of the lounge, heav- ing a sigh of woe, the tears about to roll down her forlorn face.-1 She has been given the wrong pack- age. The Art Of Floundcrling Marie Louise Tureau, '45 . THE joy of seeing the cool, clear, water shining like diamonds under Diana's gentle beams: the lucid sands of numerous colorsg the dull green sea weed that playfully clings to your legs 3 the empty flounder-beds that mark the once temporary home of that fish-those among' other things are the pleasures of flounder-. ing. In competition with the moon above, I carried the glowing death torch of the flounder-the light that will lead the way to the hiding place of my prey. The sharp spear, pa- tiently awaiting the sight of its vic- tim, glitters wickedly under the watchful eye of Venus and the Big ' g Bear. The waters part at my every step, revealing schools of fishes hur- rying as though 'they were going to a bargain sale. At closer observation, I saw orange luminous lights, ,darting through the waters like greased light- ning. It is these shrimp that are pur- sued by masses of leaping mullets .

Such are the night, time and place where my floundering trip occurred. - Of course when I go floundering, I always wear clothes and shoes 'fwhich have seen better days", be- cause I sometimes do not see those empty flounder-beds, some of which are pretty deep and mucky, and I actually come up from them, wet to my knees. Some people, I know, love the idea of going floundering bare- footed, but I do not recommend that to beginners in the delightful sport, since my friends, the flounder-beds, sometimes contain tiny sand-crabs and homeless fish. X 'To distingush the flounder from the stingray beds, indeed requires skill beyond just knowledge of flovun- dering. Although I do have my spear to defend myself, I never forget that the stingray has two ends with which to attack, while the only protective power of the poor little flounder is his ability to speed away from his enemies. ' After "years" of walking, I finally come upon something that resembles the picture of a flounder that I have once seen. Cautiously, groping my way through the black night, I creep up to the flounder, scarcely breath- ing with fear that I might frighten him away. It seems at this moment of the game, I hear all theunocturnal noises that might cause me to miss my first flounder of the night. It is not, of course, the "fish of the fish- erman's story",.but just the idea of seeing the ounder buried in the sand runs a tingle of excitement up and down my back. My thoughts race back to the particulars a friend had told me about catching a flounder: "Feel your way to about one foot from his tailg then with all your strength, spear him, right between the eyes." With every care and cau- tion, I take the final step, the step that means the difference betwen life and death, lof the flounder, I meanl and plunge my spear in the designated spot! After the ruffled sand calms down and the water changes its color from white foam to a velvety smooth greenish-blue, I can clearly see the resultof my night of preparation. There covered by Mother Nature's means of protection lies a flat fish of grayish-black hue, with two pierc- ing eyes in his back. After much squirming and flipping, the flounder E-C-H-O-E-S ,,'-LJ . .' finds his new home to be .the bot- tom of a porous sack which I have with me. With a grin of satisfaction of a deed well done, I hurry to the beach and, literally, run home to our cottage. To a person in this state of mind, everything seems to be just beautiful and supremely perfect. It seems to me this night, the lady of the moon is smiling at me brighter than ever, and the stars, endlessly winking and twinkling, also know of my great success. Our little white cottage is set far back among mas- sive, stately pines of deep green and dignified brown. What a beautiful picture that makes is something for a professional artist to describe. But, back to my flounder! Now to catch the flounder does in- deed take skill, but to know just the right way tocook it takes not just knowledge, but experience. This seems like an anti-climax to a good, spine- tingling mystery story! The best place to cook such a deli- cacy is on an open barbecue pit when all the outdoor is clean and full of refreshing odors, plus, of course, the less desirable ones that always seem to tone down the smell of the spicy pines, the feel of the cool, salty gulf breeze, and the looks of the rich jet- black mud. With all the care of hand- ling a new-born baby, lay the floun- der on the shining- grate over the .red-hot coals. Then daub it well with a sauce of melted butter and season- ings. One of the most delightful things about eating this "king of all fish," is that a flounder has only back-bones. The rest of his priceless meat is left free of the -piercing "milk-white spears".

So I, knowing it had to be done, followed the hurry- ing, gossiping, chattering crowd of women. "Well, -I never did like Mabel's hat, but I couldn't tell her." "John?

'H 5 .Q se There exists a number system. 'enterihg one's favorite butch- er- shop Cor any other shop where one knows meat is on salej one ob- serves a curiously placed table, box, or stand near the entrance. Upon close inspection the box discloses many square cut pieces of card board, each with a number on it. These numbers are placed one on top of the other, increasing as the stack decreases. Each would-be-customer entering lifts a card from its com- -fortable resting place and commences to examine the interior of the shop while waiting for her number to be called, at which time she will be served. In the meantime, a passer- by can hear the loud calling of num- bers. . "Number 152-53-543' .... .... .,.. ....

The great ma- jority of people at some time or other have been frightened half out of their wits, but to explain fear or fright to someone who has never ex- perienced it would be rather diffi- cult. To try to give this person the meaning of fright by telling him that it is sudden fear would simply be giving the person a couple of mean- ingless words. You would, therefore, have to give an example or illustra- tion before he could fully comphe- hend the matter. As I sat here pon- dering over this terrible dilemma. I recalled a frightening experience which occurred to me in my youth. Maybe you- will say that it is only an awful nightmare, which I should forget, but the hollow coldness of this fear haunts me day and night. In the beginning Lallie and I were afraid something would happen. It might have been ,intuition or it could have been the night-that night, I shall never be able to fully erase it from my memory. Vivid pictures flash in my mind, as I recall it. It was a cold, dark, dreary night. The wind was alternately howling loudly and moaning sadly around the eaves, and the windows were rattling. All of -- V - '- .Ax -L ,L -. 1, X... . 1-5.7-ni. 1 ..' .1 ' ,,- the doors were tightly lockedg-but they continuously creaked on their hinges. Outside, the shuttersbangekl and jarred. The surrounding houses were shrouded in. darkness, because the neighbors had long gone to bed. Lallie and I were alone in this dark gloomy house, which had been rumored to be haunted. We were sitting upstairs, telling ghost stories, which seemed very realistic and which made us shudder and shriek, as we took- turns relating strange, mysterious blood-curdling tales. Sud- denly, we- jumped with fright when we heard the front door squeak, as someone almost silently swung it open. Who could have opened a lock- ed door? Perhaps it was a ghost and the fantastic stories we had heard concerning the wierd 'things which had occurred under that same roof were true. ' The wind sent forth a loud moan, which shook the house and sent chills down our spines. Steps followed the moang therefore, it could not be a spook, because only a human could walk like that, taking a few muffled steps and then pausing, as if to see who was at home. Now the steps were coming closer and were distinguished as being in the dining room. Next they would come up the stairs and then what should we two frightened girls do? We were too scared to squeal or to run to the phone. Hor- rible thoughts flashed in our minds as we pictured vividly Lallie's parents coming home and finding us dead. Our breath was coming in short, hard, quick gaspsg our faces were whiter than snowg and our hands were damp with cold fear. All We dared do was to clutch each other and to pray silently that if we were to be murdered, to let it be quickly, or for Lallie's parents to return be- fore we were killed, but we knew the latter was hopeless, since it would be hours before her parents returned. Yes, the footsteps were heard onthe staircase. The steps creaked and groaned as each step was taken. Now they had reached the landing. They were coming nearer and nearer by the moment. Each second brought the footsteps and our death closer. They had reached the door and we two stunned girls with fear in our eyes watched the door knob tremble. Suddenly, the door knob turned and the door was flung open. There stood Lal1ie's mother. E-c-H-0-His Q , L l g .FQ .

"Aw, sure I'm sure, Sis," Johnny replied, very mannishly. "Ole Eric Red's gonna be the best soldier in all the army." "Didn't the directions say he'd get fed on the train? .0h, why did we answer that ad for dogs that said, 'Uncle Sam needs your dog'? It meant someone else's. Jeepers! I wonder if I could go along and take care of him?" Sadly Johnny held back the tears, but tried to assume a nonchalant air as he answered his sister. "Now, wouldn't you look fine running along behind a good soldier like Eric's gonna be, asking him if he was hun- gryozu . p Eric had been christened Eric Red I when, as a pup, he had dis- played a large red blob on each ear. It was so hard to reach a decision as to what he should be called that the Johnson family had decided to combine his two' nicknames into a distinctive "moniker", No longer a gangly pup, Eric had acquired still more blobs of red on his entire bcdy, which glistened in the sun and dis- played his graceful curves, and soft, silky hair to the best advantage. Fondly Mary and Johnny petted and talked to their dog until the sad moment when the -conductor yelled, "Get that crate aboard, ladg this ain't no picnic we're going to." Then, glancing into the crate as the train slowly gathered speed, he called back, "Don't you be frettin', childreng we'll take good care of him." A strange feeling swept over Eric as he felt the train carry him away from the, home 'he had known since he was a clumsy, sprawling puppy. EfG'H'OfEfs' ' " - n-ll1lp1ll-.ll-u1n:vll1l1ln-.u-u:np1Il-wllo "Maybe they didn't like the way I buried Mary's dolls," he thought mournfully, "or maybe I ate too much. People are so queer when you don't please them, but I never thought Johnny would send me away." As the hours passed drearily by, the little streamliner drew closer and closer to its destination. All this time Eric meditated on the sit- uation in which he found himself. Why, oh why was he being sent away? How long must he stay penned up in this box? Where was heigoing? He didn't understand all the talk he had heard about his be- ing a soldier. Who was this Uncle Sam who needed him? He knew that Tom Johnson had gone to war, but "war" was only a word to Eric. When the train finally gave a great lunge and came to a stop, he was worn out with discomfort, worry, and bewilderment. ' Eric strained every nerve to see or hear what would happen now. Suddenly the cage door shot up to bring into the range of his anxious eyes a man dressed in the queer garb that Tom had worn the last time he was at home. Slowly the tall figure stooped over to examine him, and a big, rough hand moved gently over his soft coat. All at once Eric's troubles seemed over. I-Ie still didn't know the answers to the ques- tions which bothered him, but that didn't matter any more.. He did know that he had found a friend, and he looked up trustingly as the soldier said, "Steady, boy, steady. We'l1 be seeing a lot of each other from now on." How true his statement was! For in the weeks that followed Eric Red found himself led through a strange wonderland of adventure with the soldier, whom he now recognized by the name of Svendsen, at his side. Each day he was taken through a meadow filled with holes, fires, steep, man-made cliffs, and muddy ditches. Above all this a strange, booming noise, much louder than his master's gun, roared overhead. After tirelessly struggling through the ob- stacles for days on end, he became .used to his accustomed routine, ,but never to the, rat-ta-tat and boom- bang noises. Eric never forgot the day his mas- ter gave, him a new harness! and brushed- him with undue ceremony, repeating through the process, "This is it. This is our day to shine, fella." How strange to tell him that! Nevertheless, the faithful dog obeyed to the letter. Because he wanted to please his master and show his dog friends his ability, he took particu- lar pains tor show himself bold and ,unafraid as he went through the mea- dow. When he was paraded past a group of very tall, dignified men, he patiently allowed them to examine him from his alert ears to the tip of his tail without flinching. "How silly of usto stand here let- ting strange' men in fancy uniforms examine us," he said to another dog. "Pm hungry and I'd like to get back to my quarters." H Just then a throaty voice boomed out, "'Private James Svendsen, you have successfully put your dog, Eric Red I, through the stiff training school for army dogs. It is now my pleasure to congratulate you and de- clare your dog a full-fledged mem- ber of the K-9 corps." Many months passed before the day of actual combat arrived. In a small landing craft, steering toward a calm Pacific isle, Eric Red sat pa- tiently at his master's feet thinking, "Surely I'm not the dog that con- sidered it nothing special to have a steak bone with every meal!" Truly he was a different dog, for he had been 'trained iifuthe army and was now a soldier, complete with K- rations. His train of thought was broken when Svendsen silently stroked his throat, then said softly, "This is the real thing, fella. Show them you're the best K-9 in the army." ' Then the sky exploded and turmoil was on every side as Svendsen and Eric Red plunged into the icy waters towards shore, alongside, countless other soldiers. A strange sense came over Eric and he seemed to hear a voice crying, "Faster! Faster! Don't look back! Stay next to Svendsen!" and at the same time questioning him, "Will you make it? Hurry! Hurry!" 4Continued on page 40 . Tweniy-nine i 1 I f . 11 '-"'f--' 5' L x-- ..f" ,,f,, . M., . 4.01, ,-'5":f 1 fig 'yfj-5. -3- 1 .' f .'

My Favorite Entr By Lucille Blake, '46 Dear Diary, The last twenty-four hours have been the most nerve-racking arid thrilling of yours truly's long life. It began with my taking in that soldier, which, in the first place, was all nonsense. He had been in some sort of brawl, we gathered. A Someone had found him on the large front porchg he was shot and badly cut. I was firmly against taking him in, but what else was there to do? It was late and I'm the only one in or near our apartment house with med- ical training-something he could use then and there, apparently, He was conscious--I was positive of that. Although his wounds looked bad, they weren't bad enough to cause the state of unconsciousness which, it seemed to me, was just a pretense. After I had fixed him up as well as possible, the others went back to bed, satisfied and thrilled. They are mostly middle-aged women like me, so I didn't let on my real feelings: even then I felt decidedly suspicious. The poor souls hadn't thought of go- in!! through his pockets and I must admit I was too scared to do so. The soldier was still playing 'nos- sum, so, before he could protest, I gave him a good, strong hyuo. which nut him out like a light. When he had been sleeping for about a half hm -". I finally got up courage enough to pull out his wallet. At first ap- pearance it looked like any other man's. It contained a picture of a pretty, young girl fI remember won- dering what she could see in himl. about twenty-three dollars, some arrnv credentials, a civil service card in the name of Bruno Schultz, a small card with two addresses-one in the next apartment house and one over across the tracks, and a clipping' from a newspaper. , "Heavenly days!" I thought, "I'll bet this is important. Maybe it will explain things", and naturally I be- gan to read. "All citizens of southeast Texas, especially of Jefferson and Orange counties, be on the lookout for a man wearing an army uniform of a sergeant. He is a German spy, but speaks without an accent. He is six feet, one-half inches tall, has blue- gray eyes, and blond hair. He is the sun-tanned, athletic type, with no scars or special marks. "This man is dangerous to our refineries and ship yards. Anyone seeing him, please call the nearest police office as soon as possible. A"Caution: This man is very strong. Do not attempt to fight him.

As Janice bent down, 'she saw a light-blue wallet lying on the floor. "I guess it's Jackie's," mused Janice, "I'll take it along. Wait up, Jackie. Here I come." "It's about time. Let's stop at Bailey's for a coke. I think we have time." "O.K. with me." t As the girls entered the drugstore, they were hailed from all sides by their friends, but finally made their way to a corner booth -after stop- ping at about ten tables. "Hi, Jackie and Janice. Sit down. Wasn't it a wonderful game? Did you see that long shot Jimmy made? We couldn't have won without it!" exclaimed Margaret. "And did you see -the way Glenn kept Smith, the star player, guarded? He couldn't do a thing to us," inter- rupted Barbara. So ran the conversation for the next fifteen minutes, with everyone talking at once. "Golly, Jackie," said Janice, look at the time. "Let's go so we'11 have plenty of time to get home." "All right. I'll pay the check. Wait outside for me." Janice waited outside, impatient because of the time Jackie was taking in the long line. "I'll just put the dime for my coke in Jackie's wallet. She won't take it if I don't," thought the girl as she was waiting. Janice rummaged through her purse and finally withdrew the wal- let. On seeing the amount of money .in it, she exclaimed to herself, "Gee, Jackie should be more careful. There's no identification and all her money for her ring is in here! I should keep it until tomorrow until ordering time and teach her a les- son!" Just then Jackie came out of the drugstore. "Here, Janice, hold my books while I put this.new picture of Betty in my wallet. Isn't it good? She just got the proofs back. You' should see the one she gave Jack." "Say, Jackie, is that your wallet?" "Sure, whose do you thing it is? You know mother refused 'to let me buy that pretty blue one in Black's. Mildred Williams went in right after me and bought it. "She said--She wouldn't let you- I mean-You haven't a new wallet?" "No, silly, I told you that. Well, here's my bus. See you in school to- morrow." "I'll meet you at the bench. Come early."

She didn't know what to do. -There was no identification in the wallet, and with the extra money she could get her ring. Because of the illness of Earl, her brother, money was rather scarce in the Browns' house. Earl needed a special operation on his leg if he was to walk again, and of course that meant no extras outside of the graduation dress. ,"But I don't mind, really. After all, a seventeen-year-old graduate knows how to take life." So Janice thought, but she still co'uldn't help feeling a little bit sorry for herself. ".I'll just keep it and return it to the office first thing in the morning." But all thoughts of the purse were wiped from her .mind when she reached home. Earl had fallen and was worse. Her mother was at the hospital where she would stay all night. Janice was to eat. study. and go to bed early. ' All this happened on Monday af- ternoon and Tuesday was a day on which everything went wrong. The alarm clock didn't go off. Janice was tenminutes late and forgot her first period homework at home. Oh, what a dark day! At last the lunch bell rang! ' "Jackie," she cried, on seeing her friend, "I surely am gladtc see' you," and with these words, she poured out her tale of woe. , "You think you have trouble," an- swered Jackie. "Mildred Williams did buy that palegblue wallet, but lost it again with all her graduation money in it. She says she doesn't know where she lost it, either. Isn't that tough?" ' "Yes, but her father will give her more." . , "No, he won't. He said she was spending too much money lately, what with the war and all, and re- fused to give her more money for anything! ' I "Was her wallet really light blue?" Yes, didn't you know? You hav- en't seen it, have you?" "Um-I' was just asking. Well, I have to go study my Latin. See you ,in Gym." "She didn't have to run off like that," thought Jackie. "After all, I've been dying to tell her Jerry finally Cl -'E-c-H-ofa-s . .:.'

Well, if she wants to be like that, all right." And with these angry thoughts, Jackie joined her -other friends. But Janice wasn't studying her Latin. She was walking on the campus. "I really don't have to give her the money. After all, she is sure to get the class ring. Why should she get two and me none? It isn't fair! She has always had everything. . "But what am I 'thinking of? I couldn't'keep the money. It wouldn't be honest. Everytime I looked at the ring, I'd think of how I got it. And suppose someone should find out! It's no use-I have to give back. I've know it all the time. Might as well take it to her now." And that is how Janice made Mil- dred, who was almost her enemy, the happiest girl in the school. Wednesday would have been just like any other day, except that Tom Walker met Janice on the way to school and finally asked her to go to the Prom. She could hardly wait to get to school to tell Jackie. At two o'clock the Senior Class meeting was drawing to a close. The last number on the program wasthe presentation of the class ring to the girl or' boy whom the class voted the best all-.around and most worthy to wear it. As Tom Walker, the class president, rose, an expectant hush fell over the class. "Graduation is only a few weeks away, and We haven't much time left to be together as students of Cen- tral High. Soon our books will be gone and in their place we shall hold many fond memories. Now, at this point of in- of the class any further. time, comes the high terestf-the awarding ring. Before We go let mel say that the secretary will take all orders from students for their rings. But one girl-yes, the honored one is a girl-will not have to place an order. This girl has been known for her friendliness, leader- ship, and likeable personality. 'Pm sure everyone agrees with me when I say 'Congratulations' to our Honor Girl, Janice Carter!" The rest was blurred to Janice. She was so stunned she could hardly think. "Imagine me, Janice Carter, the Honor Girl! Mother and Earl will be as thrilled as I am.

Virginia Reid, '46 NBUT Mother, I've told you," in- sisted Helen bitterly. "Yes, dear, 'I know," interrupted her mother, "but he's such a nice young gentleman and he's so polite. I just don't understand why you don't like him." At this point, Helen, red and an- gry, left the room, retorting, "I just won't have you living 'my life and making all my decisions for me, even though you may think you are do- ing the right thing!" 1 This hot argument all came about when Helen Donald arrived home after her day's work at Far- rand's Department Store. Her moth- er had just informed her that Mr. T. G. Farrand, III, about whom the argument had started, had phoned and asked if he might take Helen out that night. Mrs. Donald, seeing no harm in doingso, immediately consented, even though she knew her daughter strongly disliked Mr. Far- iand. Helen had long known. that young Tom Farrand was the spoiled, conceited grandson of the owner of the store. "But Helen, darling, he's to be here at eight o'clock," continued Mrs. Donald, following her up the stairs. "Now, Mother, I don't want to seem unreasonable, but that mane" she began. - "Darling, you've just got to go out with him tonight. I've promised." A "All right, Mother, all right. but hereafter please let- me make my own dates." "Yes, dear. Now you run upstairs and put on your prettiest frock and I'll have you a light snack when you're ready. You can eat and still be ready when he gets here. You know, I've a feeling he likes you more than you think. I do wish you could take a liking to him." Helen dressed ra-ther hastily and ate her snack, finishing just asthe doorbell rang. She heard her mother greeting Mr. Farrand and his "Good evening, Mrs. Donald." said in his usual smooth, though slightly conde- scending, manner. Once. more she wished she didnfti have to go with him, but just then he spotted her coming out of the , - Thirty-tbfee " " '15,-wifffg' N 541-Y:-W-ecami-,uimefg-"v -v eg- 111-Q 1 ul,'a-i1nr-.'.-'-..- '11.:e1j: .1--gwr,-f'-'ii' ., -- 2.1. zfagfaizf ' Mr- -. - -.:f1s.s'-in-Q-ea Lv.:-.is - I..--.b L31 s:.albqQf,gsgina2wfa.:: 3g,,,'g5g,,,- 'f,,'af,3g?3g5.l 4 . ff-'41 .,-v-', -1, , ..,,.,.,-,J ' "fri V 53115 . t gm. ,qflfiil , ' Ali .

It seems you've al- ready planned almost everything with Mother," she replied coolly. ' "'Well, go along, dearg have a good time and I'll not wait up for you," put in her mother as the two left. Several hours later, Helen re- turned, angry and more bitter than ever. As she left her escort at the door, sheicily thanked him for a ,"lovely" evening. She undressed and, exhausted, threw herself in bed, immediately going to sleep. The next morning during break- fast, her mother asked if she had had a nice time the night before. "No, Mother, I didn't. I just can't enjoy that man's company, and please, if he calls again, don't tell him I'll go out with him." "Yes, dear, only, I wish you weren't so bitter. He would make a wonderful son-in-law," was her mother's' innocent remark. "Mother, I haven't'even the slight- est intention of seeing him again, much less .giving him the chance to propose!" Helen answered, amazed. She swallowed her cup of coffee and left for work, thus implying that the subject of Mr. Farrand was definitely closed. During the next few days, Mr. Farrand's name was not mentioned, but a certain Mr. Harry Clarke's was, quite a' few times. He took Helen out nearly every' night and she seemed to be wonderfully happy dur- ing the time. He was a promising young man, for he had started at the ,bottom as a stock boy at Farrand's and had worked himself up to the best shoe salesman' in his depart- ment. ' One night, both Helen and Harry had stayed at the store for a Christ- mas Eve party and Harry had told Helen he- would take her home. It gcould 'easily be seen that young Tom Farrand had had a little too much ,to drink. He was now swaggering .toward them wi-th his eyes bleary bloodshot. I A - j 7ff"Mishter Clarke, 'could I sheeyou :ajninutel in' the other room?" .he asked.. f1g ,V . .K Q ff'Yes,f Farrandff replied,Harry and ,turning ,to Helen., 'he 'told her to get -'rvL.'.,s r -- her coat and hat and he would be with her in a 'few minutes. . As she stood inside the door wait- ing, she saw that the city was in for a "White Christmas." There were already a few flakes drifting down and the cold stiffness of the air showed that the snow wouldn't be long in coming. She pulled her coat tighter around her and shivered a little as the door opened for some- one, admitting a burst of cold air. She wondered what was keeping Harry and decided to go back to the room where the party was ting to be very noisy. There asked if anyone had seen Harry, was 'told that Harry and Tom gone into the adjoining room hadn't returned. She went to get- she and had and the door and heard Harry's voice faint- ly above the rabble of the party. He was saying, "You did steal that money from the cash register, didn't you?" "Yes, but you'l1 never tell any- one. No, sir, I'll see to that. You may think I'm dead drunk, but I can still see straight enough to see that you won't ever tell Grandfather or anyone. You won't even live long enough to propose to Helen. I'm go- ing to marry her, understand. Pm going to marry her!" At this moment Helen pushed the door open just in time to see Tom seize a heavy decoration from the wall and start to bring it down with murderous force. But as he caught sight of Helen, he dropped his heavy implement and stared. "You're going to marry Whom?" she asked. ' ' As he turned toward her, Harry took advantage of his opportunity and 'knocked him out. He sank to the floor unconscious and Harry opened the door, calling to the night watchman, "Hey, come take care of this fellow, will you?" Sobbing and trembling, Helen was clinging to Harry. "It's all right, honey," he said, "Let's go home." V When Helen had regained her self- composure, she asked' Harry what had happened in the room. "Well," Harry replied, 'fhe asked me, as you know, to come into that room for a minute. He insisted that- he was going to -take yourhorneg but I told him that he had another thought coming." "But why didn't he ask me him- self instead of. gding to you'f'?Q.,'fiii?P31 quired Helen. - - A I g ., Q-I 1' if, "'He knew' you would never con- sent to it. I guess maybe' he thought he would bully me intofletf ting him do it. His main purpose" was to propose to you! In fact, he even showed me a two-thousand,-dob lar engagement ring he had for you!" "A two-thousand-dollar engage- ment ring!" exclaimed Helen. 7 I "Yes, and that's when I became suspicious. He wastes so much that he would never have money to buy a thing like that. Besides, the store missed 52,000 from one of the cash registers last week and no one but Mr. T. G. Farrand the' First had a key. Since he was out of town, I guessed that young Tom must have taken the key and stolen the money. When I accused him of it, he knew he was trapped, and if you hadn't interfered, he would have killed me." . X By the time they reached Helen's home, a heavy snow was falling and it was after midnight. "Helen, do you know what time it is?" Harry questioned. , - "No," was the reply, "but it must be pretty late." "It's after midnightg it's now Christmas Day. Merry' Christmas, darling!" he said as he slipped a tiny diamond solitaire on her finger. "Merry Christmas, . Harry!" she whispered with her heart in her eyes. - i.li Favorite Entry fContinued from page 311 "That's Helen, Mickey's wife.

In the soft, unreal night. the pyramidals looked like aboundant shocks of corn. Rv the wire near the beach, a rangy soldier lay on his back. his banjo on his stomach awkwardly strumininor on the strings. He pecked out sin'I'e notes and sent them whining into the night. He could hear the men in the tents checking and recheckiwr their efiuinment. He wanted to write a letter home. but knew he couldn't nut the things he felt on paper. There was no wav of describing the uncer- taintv' and loneliness. They were shipping out in the mornineq, and no on.e knew where they were going or what they would find there. It was a winter's moon on a tropical hear-la. naradoxically warm to them, enticing. yet its unfamiliar light was disturb- ing. He was playing "My Old Ken- tucky Home" and the bitter notes that came from the banjo were like a young Negro whose memory holds tragedies he has inherited but never known-"For my old Kentucky home +far away." . ' Andnthere he lay, strumming his banjo, and dreaming of home. The little house on'a curving street facing the hills was a beautiful sight all year around, but in the winter, when the fir trees wear white collars and the shadow of the fence is purple on the drift, when the birds take tiny stitches in the snow and our 'footprints hurry toward the house as dusk draws nigh, there is an enchant- ing, and unforgettable warmth of home. The warmth of home, its fragance, coming from the outside- from the winter air-the waiting look the rooms have-the dining room where the little blue cupboards with pretty things are in the corners! The was still the best companion, the truest friend, the only--Dad. And then, there was Mom at the station kissing him good-byg trying hard to keep from crying, but as he boarded the train, he could see tears in her eyes, shining like drops of rain in the sun. The train pulled out and from the back platform he saw her tiny handkerchief dab at her eyes as she strained forward lest she miss the last glimpse of the train. And those goodies! Everyone enjoyed them so. Gee, Mom surely is a good cook! She knows just what a fellow likes. She was always working so hard to please everybody, but you didn't think about that 'until you were away from home and you couldn't ask for your favor- ite pie and, presto, at supper time there it is before you. You just don't appreciate anything until you've lost it. . But it isn't gone forever. Some day he'll be back home in that old corn- er room with the school pennants that Mom has kept so neat and ready. Heid been eating K rations for so long that he no longer thou-ght of fried chicken, salads' or cake, except at the peak of a growing description of things longed for. He thoughtnof fried eggs and crisp strips of bacon sizzling in -. hot grease, the aroma penetrating the thickest walls to drift under one's nose and arouse him from his quietest slumber. He could remember the way the green linole- um was worn by the sink, he could -hear the radio playing and see 'the evening paper droppedf under the light at the end of the blue divan. These are some of the little things he looks forward to. For it's the little things-the small familiar pleasures -that to him, as to all of us, add up to home. ' i - understood each other ever since they had been very young. Then he was caught in a 'whirlpool of imagi- nation that sent him spinning back to dreamland. She was a quiet kid with a small face and her eyes were soft, sort of like a kitten's. He never thought anybody could- ever feel the' way he did about some things. And here was another per- son, even if it was a girl. They had grown up together-loving and un- derstanding. Once in a while they'd go to the movies 'with the gang, but lots of times, they'd just stay home and play checkers or go over the old Latin. They had planned everything just as it should be' and when he gets back, there'll be newer, finer ways of enjoying the land he fought for. Maybe he will have his post- war meals in pink and purple pills: maybe he'll swoosh to work in a rock- et car-maybe so! But there are ,a few things that eleven million G. Ig Joes want to find just as they left them-just as they've dreamed about them through all these long months. Such as the unchanging love of the girl who waited and the corner room, and the old fireplace and America. He knows what America means now. He had known her rivers be- fore, her towns and her slow climbing mountains. He had learned the places where Ehe could go and Where he could not go, but after serving her, he knew there was no place that was not his, no part of America that was not his. 'A little courage had earned him that right, because rights arexnot granted. No group of men can grant other men rights of any kindg they are achieved and acknowledged. He had achieved .them because he recog- nized them in himself. There is nothing at home he' wanted that he H Q Jil' ' '.gf'j K. eat: . , Y J. X :L ' . ,.. . , M.. -. -My 'fi ...., 'i A i r .

That would be in a farther future, a quieter time among familiar things, when grass will spring from the earth as if it' came from some boundless source. He will wait for it, knowing, it will be his, for as he had known the face of America, he knows now her heart and her spirit. ' Suddenly hewas brought back to reality and he smiled to himself as the ripples on the beach seemed to echo-"My Old Kentucky Home- Far Away." Casey A HEAVY curtain of smoke arose as the fog of early morning lay like a blanket over the bloody battle- field, where watchful men were try- ing to penetrate the soupy atmos- phere about them. No sound was heard except the distant thunder of anti-aircraft at the front and the closer groans and cries of -the woun- ded. In the trenches and behind the lines, medical men were moving with quick efficiency as the stretcher bearers carried in the slightly wound- ed cases which could be patched up under fire. The more seriously wounded were carried back to the hospital, if possible, or treated as best they could be under the present conditions. As the smoke slowly as- cended, the firing began and soon the noise of machine gun and rifle took the place of the death-like quiet- ness preceding. Like the bouncing up of a jack-in- the-box when the lid is raised, a huge red setter leaped from a distant shell crater and made his way quickly but carefully across the field in the 'di- rection of the front trench. On his back was strapped, a small leather case containing a message for the lieutenant in the trench. The dog, sensing that his appearance was a goodtarget for snipers, ran as close to the ground as possible. At inter- vals, if the shooting became extreme- ly difficult to dodge, and if he were near a foxhole, he would drop into it until the shooting slackened and he was able to proceed amid slighter disturbances. Within a few feet of the trench the force ofan exploding hand grenade near-by, knocked him down andlcovered him with the dirt that had been torn from the earth Thirty-.fix X with the explosion. He lay for a min- ute beneath the debris, not hurt, but only stunnedg then with a final burst of strength he ran for the comfort- ing shelter of the trench, which he gratefully accepted. He was exhausted, and as the mes- sage was removed from its case and an answer written, he lay on the hard dirt floor of the trench with his chin on his paws, and let his mind wander back to his home. He had come to the family as a tiny, silky red pup with long ears and big paws. They called him "Casey,," not for the famous Casey Jones, but because that name seemed suited to him. He was, you know, an Irish setter, though at first everyone doubted it. But as he grew older, he became slim and graceful and indeed lived up to his name. His face, long and well shaped, had a proud, arro- gant, rather superior look and his eyes were alert and watchful. His ears never dropped, even in scolding, but held themselves erect defiantly. His hair was silky and thick and of a rusty reddish color. His tail, long and forever wagging, resembled the plume of a fashionable lady's hat. Casey was loved by-the family and all who knew him, yet he was feared and respected by the dogs and cats of the neighborhood. For it was his joy to fight with the dogs or 1'un the cats up a tree. But if he were scratch- ed or hurt in some way, he allowed no one to doctor him. He was his own physician and healer. Above ev- erything else, Casey loved hunting. Just the removal of the shot gun or twenty-two rifle from the closet would send him into hysterical bark- ing, and if the words, "How about it, Casey, let's go hunting . . . ?" were spoken, his joy was limitless. He could roam through the woods for hours, never tiring, treeing squirrels or chipmunks and chasing rabbits or even cows, if he could find nothing betterq Finally arriving home again, wearily but triumphantly, Casey al- Advice Hazel Muller, Post Graduate Build you castles in the air, Plant your thoughts with flowers fair, Pave your roads -with sbining truth, Start your life in dreaming youth. ways carried' in his mouth one ofthe- prizes, which he proudly lay before the family. Then one calm Sunday evening the peaceful life came to an 'abrupt end. The United States was at war with Japan. The men and boys every- where were joining some branch of the service. Two from Casey's family went, one never to return-and then they decided to let Casey go, too. The next six months were the most difficult in Casey's life. He was taught, not to be loving 'and gentle, as he had been at home, but to be suspicious of everyone. He was taught to run under heavy fire, to jump over deep ditches and high walls. For the first time in his life Casey also learned what it was to be hungry and thirsty. But he survived the rigid tests and landed smack in the middle of trouble, spelled N-A-Z-I. His train of thoughts were inter- rupted with the placing of the mes- sage in its case on his back. Once more he began his slow progress back over the field. His former thoughts of home were far away and he con-- centrated only on getting back to his shell hole. But halfway over, lady luck deserted him and a bullet hit him in the chest. And, amid in- tense pain, he seemed to gain a strange new strength and reached the safety of his original shell crater. After removing the message, the men tried to ease his pain, but he would have no part of that. I-Ie looked at them solemnly, then with a sort of apologetic look on his intelligent face, closed his eyes never to reopen them again. Of the men standing around, more than one had a tear in. his eye and a lump in his throat for their faithful friend who had given his life to successfully carry a message. In a small plot, beneath a tiny mound near the hospital, lies the body of the courageous setter, and over the grave on a wooden .slab these words appear: "He's dead. Ohl' Lay 'him gently in the ground , And may his tombgbe by this verse renowned. Here Casey, the pride of all his kind, is laid 4 Who fauned like man, but ne'er like man betrayed." .

These are dangerous thoughtsg for I'm afraid that quiet sanctuary in my mind and the often- times madhouse down on Lowerline Street never seem to coincide. If the reader will be so kind as to permit me, I shall attempt to tell him what I mean by this statement. I arrive. "Home, home at last!" I cry. , My mother looks up absently and, sweetly pecking me on my cheek, says cheerily, "I'm so glad you're home, baby fughljg I want you to go to the grocery store." Now there are many combinations of words in the English language, but none of them hold so dread a memory as the above. I try to think of something cut- ting to say, so, after thinking furi- ously for a while, I pour forth with, Nob !!l ' I take my coat back out of the closet, comb my'hair, and then ap- proach Mother to see if I can find out exactly what she wants me to get at the store. "Oh," she says, "just get me some bread, onions, potatoes, and, . . . er .V . . just look around and get me anything you want." That command just thrills me pur- ple, because I know that if I don't get exactly what she wants, I trot back to the store. -Q Well, I go out the door, feeling as if someone had just used my only shoe coupon, -and start darkly down the street. Now I should give an account of my experiences at the store, but they are too boring for my inadequate pencil to describe. The general idea, however, is that I return home laden with a bunch of nothing, walk into the house, deposit my loot on the kitchen table, and try to get into my room without any- one's noticing that I have returned. However, I do not succeed, and Mother spies me. 'After setting the table, making some cream sauce and generally ECHOES making myself useful, I pick up the evening paper and eagerly scan the pages to find "Little Abner." As I settle back to enjoy it, thoughts fill my mind of the cheerful atmosphere and peace of one's own home. "Ah, there's nothing like it." But, wait. What's that? It can't be true, it mustn't be, oh-o-0-o, it is -MY SISTER. She comes in and glares at meg I glare back. A "My blouse," she says. ."My necklace," I retort. We finally agree on armed neu- trality and she leaves the room. I return to my paper and find my place-you guessed it-my Daddy comes home. This means dinner and I still haven't read the paper. How- ever, I'm not complaining, because my mother is just about the best cook in the world las whose Mother isn't?J. To get back to the subject, however, we sit down and eat, and talk, and gave a good time. Ah, I just love my family. After we fin- ish, Mother excuses herself. We talk a little longerg then Daddy ex- cuses himself. Gloria and I sit there talking until the cold realization comes to us that we're alone-with the dishes. - We sit there a little longer thinking that maybe they'll go away, or wash themselves, or maybe the house will burn down, and we'll have to rush out leaving the soiled dishes on the table. We aren't very lucky, however, and the hour of doom approaches. If Fib- ber Magee comes on .at eight-thirty, and it is only eight-ten then, and it takes us fifteen minutes to do the dishes, we figure that We have five minutes to sit around and talk. we sit around all right, but we can't think of anything to say except, "I wish we didn't have to do the dishes"g to which remark the other says, "Yeah." About eight-thirty, after Gloria and I make the pleasant discovery that doing the dishesAdidn't kill us, we settle down comfortably to listen to Fibber- Magee. Suddenly, the door bell rings, and guess what? Company.

Gloria and I look at each otherg our faces are two feet long. We drag ourselves into our room and decide to read. I pick up the Mc- Call's, and start looking through it, when Gloria comes up and says, "Why don't you let me read that one? You have all the afternoon to read it and I have only night." All after- noon, indeed! AThat finishes it! I'm going to bed. That ends my little tale of a peaceful, calm, tranquil, and a string of other adjectives, day. All I do then is to give my hair the cus- tomary five strokes, get ready for bed, and leap in. Now, beloved reader, I have de- scribed one type of day to you. If you think you can stand it, I shall make a futile attempt to tell you of another type. In case you are too discouraged, I shall try to re- late it in as few words as possible. I came home, full of fun, ready for anything, energetic as a tank- ful of gasoline, to find no one at home. This type of afternoon is usually spent in reading, lolling around the house, and using the telephone. This type, too, is entire- ly unsatisfactory. Now, I should like to describe to you that wonderful, beautiful, ex- quisite day, that day of days, that culmination of all that is ideal, the day when everything goes right. Ah! I should like to, but it is im- possible. In the first place, I have used up all my time, and in the sec- ond place, I shouldn't known any adequate words to describe it. The only thing I can say about it is that kind of day is what makes one real- ize what home really means, what a family really means, and what Life would be without them. It makes one realize that her home is her- self, as much as it is anything else, that it is Mother, Father, sister, brother, cat, dog, everybody. As for me, I think mine is one in a million: I wouldn't trade it for the world. Mary Anne Thompson, '45 Thirty-.steven .. .-, ,,,v., X . K. -...I 7 ..

' ' ' As for my duration being dull and V - uninteresting, I should scarcely agree. , Perhaps I have in the past suffered g, an acute case of melancholia, but P, 1 v f., ei' ag sg: last week I was joined by two 'other albums. After a careful comparison of facts I learned, to my great sur- prise, that they are close relatives of mine. One is called the "Romeo and Juliet Overture", while the other is the "Fourth Symphony," and both, as I, are offsprings of Papa Peter. The day the "Fourth Symphony" arrived, everyone in our household knew i-t. His voice squealed through- out the rooms, and the other records remained in the chambers until his little discs were worn thin. He join- ed us a little later with "Those folks don't know when to let up: thev're wearing me out!" From the time of this pun, we all grew to love The Fourthg he is indeed a jolly album. Yet, in spite of his fine character and cheerful disposition, he is, beyond all doubt, the loudest and noisiest of us all. Papa Peter-created this sym- phony as a tribute to Madame von Meek, but I am certain, at the time, he had no idea that he was creating such a brat. . The 'Overture is a beautiful crea- tion. She Has the charm and grace of Venus, the lightness and swiftness of Mercury, and the vicious temper and fury of Thor. She is a delicate. flower, a precious jewel, and is my favorite. Yesterday one of my rec- The Storm Eloise Klimm The sun had set, the day was gone, And shadows began to glide Around the corner, up the walk, In search of a place to hide.

The storm hovered near, gathering its ords became lost in her album. That was indeed a delightful experience, for we were alone together. As Junior was the only one in the house, we remained uninterrupted, since he was deeply engrossed in "Jumpin' Jones and his Jivin' Jerquesf' She promised to remember me always, to be true to me forever, and to try to be misplaced in my album as often as she could possibly manage. This may sound rather odd to you, since I've previously explained that we are close relativesg but you must realize that it's all very different with rec- ords. ! s Yes, records are greatly different from the uninteresting, insensible ob- jects to which you refer. I have been indeed happy in this house - my home, and now that I have met the Overture I am certain of future hap- piness. My greatest pleasure is the contented smile on the lips of an en- thusiastic listener, and the sheer de- light of being enjoyed. I am happy here, and I wish to be forever loved and cherished, wanted and heard, played and not forgotten. I shall forever bring forth' melodious strains to you, serve you, and maker you hap- py.

From all reports this play went over "big" and was enjoyed by young and old. The young who saw themselves mirrored on the stage and "the old who saw the problems that would confront them -when their own darling caught the June bug and went f'June Mad." Medal For Valor fContinued from Page 291 Then they were there. AAs the four-legged soldier dug his paws deep into the sandy beach, he seemed to hear the voice saying, "You've just begun. Luck, old boy!" As quickly as they had come, the raging noises went, and everything on the island was silent. A state of excitement lingered over the little scouting party as they huddled around a signal map in an effort to locate their exact position. "Here we are," one soldier pointed out on the map. "We are only. a short distance from Tree M, where we are to receive a reply to our message." "Good work," said Sergeant Svendsen. "Now, men, keep your eyes peeled for a white pigeon. There she- comes, right on sched- ule. Here's hoping we get to Tree M before she does." Forty 1 , Y ..',- , ' 1 ,vig ,T .. - r X. With as much tenseness as his master, Eric watched the graceful white bird soar through space closer and closer to its destination. "Men, that bird means life or death to us," Svendsen said serious- ly. "We must get that message." Suddenly a shot pierced the still- ness. The bird plummeted toward the ground and into the icy waters off shore. A muffled groan rose from the little group of men. No sooner had the bird fallen than Eric Red's body began to quiver with the eagerness of a true retriever. With only .instinct.to guide him, he launched himself into the bitter surf so quickly that he did not hear his master's frantic cry, "Come back, Red, you'll be killed." Slowly he pressed on toward the bird as bullets pinged around him. Closer and closer he came. Ah, now he had her securely in his mouth, ready to return to the shore. A sharp pain pierced his side as he swam, but he refused to give up his struggle. Shakily he crawled into some thickets on shore. The pain in- tensified, but Eric Red forced his way through the underbrush until he caught sight of the men for whom he was searching. With a whimper of pain a badly-wounded hero col- lapsed under the strain of his deed as he laid- his prize at the feet of his master and felt strong arms em- bracing him, while a well-known voice said, "Good work, fella, good work." Weeks later Eric Red lay curled up at the feet of his buddy-in-arms, peacefully gnawing the remains of a ham bone. He could hear his master proudly relating his heroic dog's ac- tion as he displayed the beautiful bronze medal awarded Eric for valor and loyalty to duty. Lieutenant .Tame Svendson was very happy that day, and Eric Red's heart surged with triumphant joy, for he knew that he had pleased his master. E-C-H-0-E-S V N , ' VI, ..

I Forever Free By Honore Morrow IN March, 1861, the United States was alive with inward struggleg the strong bonds of the Union were severed and bleeding. The Southern States, joining together to form the Confederacy, elected Jefferson Davis to lead them in their fight-for slav- ery, while Abraham Lincoln, the backyard lawyer, was inaugurated as President of the United States. Be- cause the author gives an accurate account of the arguments for and against slavery, one understands the Southern land-owners' great need for slaves, but realizes that the equality of man holds true, regardless of race. Though his appearance does not- merit it, -Lincoln was possessed of a brilliant mind and a charming per- sonality. He awkward height, his too prominent ears, his shambling gait, his huge hands and feet, and the striking sparkle of his grey eyes, full, deep, and penetrating, were merely disguise for a man, whose genius will be remembered forever. Mrs. Morrow' excels in her portrayal of Lincoln and his struggle to over- come many hardships. ' When the time came for Lincoln and Tad, his youngest son, to leave the Union army camp, which they visited, Taddie seemed to have mys- teriously disappeared. Finally, he was found by the bridge, crying 'for his father. On his arrival, Lincoln asked, "Did you get homesick all of a sud- den, Taddie?" f'Don't touch me, Papa,".commanded the tiny lad .in a voice hoarse from long sobbing. "Pm unda' my own a' west. I sent fo' you to tell you I have ,to stay hea'alI night." "What bad thing have you done, Taddie?" Lincoln asks solemn- ly, "I killed something I loved. The co'po'al gave me a little weeny white kitten. Then I stopped hea' to play with itg I played it was Jeff Davis and I was an Indian chief and I threw my bowie knife at it. I didn't want to hu't it but the di'ty skunk of a E-C-H-O-E-S . , knife slipped and went in the kit- ten's soft belly and it mewed and mewed, and I couldn't stop it or help it, and it died. I knew you wouldn't punish me so I'm doing it myself." In this touching scene, the author de- scribes'the character of "Tiny Tad" and his knowledge of his father's sympathethetic understanding. "Forever Free," an intriguing his- tory of Lincoln's life -in the White House, is a fast-moving account of the "Great Em,ancipator's" struggles for the abolition of slavery. Becom- ing familiar with the prominent poli- ticians and problems of the dav, the reader thereby increases his knowl- edge of facts concernnig the Civil War. Many of the everyday happen- ings which influenced Lincoln's mag- nificent decisions arelvividly and ac- curately described by Mrs. Morrow, whose ceaseless research into the life of Lincoln is shown by the length of the bibliography. Exceeding-ly en- ioyable are the scenes concerning Lincoln's relations with his family: his gentleness in the rearing ofhis children is the source of much hu- mor. Highlv entertaining, this en- chanting book should be enjoyed by any reader whol desires a better knowledge of Lincoln's term as Pres- ident ofl-our country. Ann Levy, '46. Red Rock . Thomas Nelson Page THE setting is laid in the' South, somewhere in that vague region partly in one of the old Southern States and partly in the yet vague "Land .of Memory." The people in the story speak of it as, "the Red Rock section," "the old country," or just, "my country, sir." Of the many characters the one who impresses the reader most is J acquelin Gray, the son of the owner of Red Rock. In the opening scenes, Jacquelin and Blair Cary, the beau- tiful young daughter of Dr. John Cary are playmates. When war is de- clared, Jacquelin, fifteen years- old, . , '.-13.14 x I 'I leaves to fight for the South, and when he returns, to his home after the war, he finds many of the old places destroyedg because of' an illness, Jacqulin takes a trip around' the world. Upon his return, his Mo- ther dies leaving his brother, Rupert, and him under the guidance of Aunt Thomasia. With the other men of that section, he then fights the car- pet-baggers and finally overcomes their tyrannical rule. In the end, Jacquelin marries Blair and returns to his former home. Mr. Page, a prominent author of Southern literature, lucidly describes the rolling Red Rock country, the for- ests and meadows, and the sparkling streams bubbling over rocks or wind- ing under willows and oaks. We see the realm of old time courtesy and high breeding, when all men bow low before ladies and wear swords to de- fend their honor. The author has given us an engrossing novel in which he brilliantly combines adven- ture, tragedy, and humor. Rhea Brennan, '46. Swift Rivers Cornelia Meigs THIS adventurous story of the early nineteenth century has for its setting the section of the turbulent Mississippi River between a small Swedish settlement in Minnesota and St. Louis, Missouri. In "Swift Rivers" Chris Dahlberg, the main character, is a young Swedish boy with 'all the determina- tion and courage a youth can pos- sess. Being ill treated by his uncle, Chris leaves him and goes to live with his aged grandfather who abides in a large forest. Striving to find a way to make money to support his grandfather and himself, he cuts timber from the forest and floats it down the river to St. Louis. ' An arresting scene is one in which some of the most valuable logs dis- appear during a wreck which occurs on the trip down the river. Chris and a friend desperately- set out in a small boat to look lfor them. After hours of searching, the boys find the logs in a small lagoon guarded by hostile Indians. Plans are madefor retrieving them without the Indians Forty-one .. ,,. 1.,.U. VN- M - .-X-Y-, ,.-.. Ps .f .. I -- is. , Y 4 gage f',if-'11',,'. :L , fe - 3: ,f-.irgl-':'.1:..fg1P" '-Q,-.

O awakening he sees Chris plowing nolselessly through the water with the last log. A flerce water battle follows, but Chris is victorious and the logs are saved Q " Cornelia Meigs' keen interest in United States history is manifested in this novel as in many of her other books. Although the main purpose of the author was to entertain the much interested reader, one also learns a great deal about the hard- ships of a steamboat captain and his crew. In the conclusion, Chris re- ceives his hard earned money and re- turns to his waiting grandfather in Minnesota. Vera Wright, 47. Among the numerous characters IS a tall heavily built man who had beerrreared among the Indians and who later struggled with the white men to force the Indians to search for new land on which to live. Angus McDermott the light blue-eyed man was hardly ever seen without h's musket which to him was his only means of protection while living' his rugged life.. When he fell in love with a young girl, his life did not al- together change, but he did become a little less adventurous. An inspiring scene is one in which McDermott searches for the girl for whom he had a deep affection. Earlier, she and her family were im- plored by McDermott to leave their home because of a neighboring un- - " if Muslc And New Orleans?

In his search for Charity, the young girl of the family, he was successful: she was released to h-im from the Indian tribe on an agreement. ' Thomas Boyd, the author of this enjoyable book, probably wrote it to improve the knowledge of those who know little about early Americans and to recount the feelings regard- ing land settlements between the white men and the Indians during' those pioneer days of America. In- deed, the romantic lives of two main personalities prove to be most ideal- istic and satisfying to the reader. Shirley Roberts.

The soloists include- a group of Metropolitan Opera-singers: Licia Albanese, Lily Djanel, Raoul Jobin, Thomas Hayward, and Nicolo Mosco- no.

In the 1840's sev- eral famous opera companies were brought from Europe and gave at the orleans, si. Philip, and st. Charles Theatres, as they are now called, many performances of creditable opera. Records today show that many an opera received its New World premier at these theatres. Three of the best-known of these "first-performances" were Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoorf' and Ha- levy's "La Juive," which were pre- sented respectively in 1841 and to Lyle Saxon, New Orleans' favor- ite. This is indeed ia remarkable showing for the early eighteenth cen- tury. ' ' Many concerts were given at the St.- Charles Theatre from 1840- to 1855. Jenny Lind, the "Swedish Nighiiiigiilf-i," and Ole Bull, the violinist who was a friend of Edward Grieg, were among the most success- ful artists presented. Miss Lind's success is evident, for the tickets to her first concert were auctioned off, the first one selling for 5240! In' 1853 Maurice Strakosch, who was appearing with Mr. Bull, introduced Adelina Patti, his protegee, who was then but ten years old!

Louis Moreau Got- tschalk of Creole descent was born here in 1829. Taken to France whenf he was only thirteen, he studied in Paris with Berlioz, and soon made his debut, achieving immediate suc- cess for both his virtuosity and his compositions. The immortal Freder- ick Chopin once predicted that Got- tschalk would become the king of Orleans the musical center of the Southern -States, disappeared into flame, smoke, and ashes.. It was destroyed by a fire just a few months after the death of Adelma Patti the singer who was so closely associated by Orleanians with the old French Opera House. At the beginning of the twentieth century, a new type of music was created in New Orleans by Negro levee workers. This style, which be- came popular about 1915, was origin- ally named jazz. However, it might have been called the "slang" of musical expression, for like slang it . .- N, is 'PST'-:-T..r' .

His compositions, like those of Chop- in, are similar to the "local-color" works of literature, for as their sub- jects he took songs expressive of his period-the Louisiana Negro and old Creole melodies, and French-Cajun folk songs. There are a great many others who deserve mention--Ernest Guiraud, the opera-writer Whose first work was presented when he was only sixteen 5 and Emile Johns, a salon-music composer who won con- siderable recognition for his "Album Louisianaisn-but for the Amoment, Gottschalk, the best-known, is suf- ficient. Ten years before Gottschalk's death in 1869, a building was erect- ed five blocks from Canal Street, at Toulouse and Bourbon Streets, that was destined soon to become the center of the social- life of New Or- leans, and the most fashionable opera house in the land. The French Opera House Association, erected in 1859, brought to New Orleans many fa- mous European artists, who usually remained here the entire season. Adeline Patti, who toured Europe successfully several times and who was the favorite of everyone, was just one of the many famous' sing- ers presented-Mme. Urban, Mile, Hitchcock, and Mlle. Calvee. Mlle. Patti's brilliant debut, when she was only seventeen, was made at the French Opera House--not at Lon- don, where she won international fame a year' later, as it is so wrongly stated. Among the many outstand- ingkworks given their American pre- miers here were: Bizet's "L'Arlesien- ne," Massenet's "Herodiade" and "Werther", and' Saint-Saens "Sam- son et Delilah". After sixty years that held war, peace, prosperity and poverty for the South, the French Opera House, which had made New li-C-H-O-E-S ' Q. ' is constantly changing-first jazz, then rag-time, the blues, boogie- woogie, and swing, as it isnow called. Popular American artists like George Gershwin, composer, and Paul White- man, conductor, have done much to better jazz and its derivatives. Per- haps some day it will be classed as ffolkj music typical of the restless spirit during the First world war andthe depression which followed it. In any event, jazz will leave its trace on American music. , As a final word in this discussion of New Orleans music, it can be said that New Orleans is rebuilding its reputation as a music center. For ten years, the -New Orleans Sym- phony has been giving winter concerts to music lovers, and during this pe- riod it has been constantly improv- ing, both in musicianship and size. The Opera House Association has been giving many delightful per- formances of grand opera with guest singers of Metropolitan rank. The location of the Summer Pop Con- certs, which were given in Elk Place just off Canal Street, has been chang- ed to an even larger and better place -Beauregard Square. All three of these musical organizations have unit- ed under the Community Music Fund, which at present has reached only sixty per cent of its goal of S150,000. This winter season, New Orleanians are looking forward to a brilliant series of operas and con- certs with many famous artists. No longer will one recall ,the "good old days", speaking of the French Opera House, with sadness. The conversa- tion will be of the coming perform- ances, instead of the past ones, or perhaps it will be of a new star from New Orleans-indeed, the conserva- tion might be of a new opera written by an Orleanian. one-half visiting musicians, and the singers well-typed to their respective roles. The cast included Mona Pau- lee of the Metropolitan in the title role, Edward Kane as "Don Jose", Donald Dickson as, "Escamillo", and Frances Yeend as "Micaela". The distinguished Leopold Sachse was stage director. "Carmen" herself was lovely and talented, and gracious- ly answered many well-deserved cur- tain calls. Supporting artists, the orchestra, ballet, costumes, and scenery-all deserve a special word of praise. 'As one of the world's great masterpieces, "Carmen" is as modern in spirit and as vital in music today as it was the day it was writ- ten, and its charm has not suffered in the English translation. Orchestra Notes i Kathryn Kirst '46 MCMAIN'S orchestra under the di- rection of Professor Carl L. Kirst gave a concert on May 15 for the public. Such numbers as the well-known "Voice of Spring" by Strauss and a special string arrange- ment of Dvorak's "Humoresque" were included in the selections for that night. "Le'Fileuse", a delightful harp solo by Hasselman, was artistic- ally rendered by Rosemary Stockton. Viotti's Violin Concerto performed by Master Carl Kirst was an added attraction. Catherine Scblueter, the featured vocalist, sang the very pop- ular "It Had To Be You" and "You Belong To My Heart". A chorus of two hundred voices directed by Miss Weiss gave Victor Herbert's "Thine Alone" and Rob' Roy,Peery's "Amer- ica, My Wondrous Land". Both pro- grams were thoroughly enjoyed by all. , i .

High School has always willingly co-operated with requests of the Red c Cross or any other similar organiza- tion. Therefore it was not unusual that, upon the request of the New Orleans Chapter of the Red Cross, the students eagerly began work on a project' that would add color and charm to the beautiful new recrea- tion room at the Army Air Base on Lake Pontchartrain. A To the students, such a project is not easily undertaken, and only with careful planning and much study can the many obstacles be elminated Y and -the project prove successful. In this instance many problems had to be met and the students, with much enthusiasm, prepared to overcome them. The first of such problems was to find an interesting as well as colorful subject. When interviewed, Lieuten- ant Conboy suggested that the story , of New Orleans related on .eleven murals, would be ideal for such a room as the one to be decorated. an Certainly the emotions of the many 4, - boys from hundreds of different A """ i' ' cities could be stirred no more than A ,ta 0 by a pictorial review of "-America's H . a ' Y I Most Interesting City."

It is night, and in another part of the city, away from the shining lights and splendid fineries, a voo-doo priest is holding rituals for his faithful fol- lowers. The weird and rhythmic beat- ing of the drums fills the atmosphere with mysterious sounds. Such cere- monies have since ceased in the city of New Orleans, for in Congo Square, where once stood the voo-doo priest, now stands the Municipal Auditor- ium. Let us go back to that part of New Orleans in which lights shine and carriages with well dressed couples fill the narrow streets. To night the French Opera House is surrounded with fame, for the young Jenny Lind is about to make her debut. Thecritiques crowd with the many guests and in its shining glory the voice of Jenny Lind is heard again as the 'New Orleans Opera House takes its original form in "The Old French Opera House." Once again it's morning, and seated on the steps of Jackson Square, shadowed' by the famous spires of the St. Louis Cathedral, is a young colored boy with his wares to sell. The heat of the day is tiring and depressing, and Jackson Square, alive with blooming azaleas, provides an ideal resting place for the weary child. Great is the artistic design of the St. Louis Cathedral and to those not fortunate to see it yet, it is a preview of the treat in "The St. Louis Cathedral. Voices shrill loudly as flaming colors speckle the cobble stone streets of the Old French Market. The Old French Market! The name itself brings romance to those who knew it. Here, farmers from all the surround- ing land congregate to sell their wares. Colored women traverse in and out among the various pavillions 1? with their baskets perched high on their heads. Although some of the atmosphere was lost in the demolish- ing of this center of trade, it is par- tially recaptured in the present re- production and in "The Old French Market" it comes to life again. Returning from the market one passes the Old Absinthe House. Ex- cept for the noise from the street all is quiet in the Absinthe House. Ab- sinthe today is a thing of the past, for it is sold no more, yet in New Orleans still stands the original Ab- sinthe House, and the the mural "The Old Absinthe House" one can see it again as it stood in the height of its glory. Beyond the city proper, in the swamps and bayous, hidden from the watchful eye of the law, is New Or- leans' first black market. Under the canopy of silken moss, Jean Lafitte and his pirates sell the jewels and fineries they had previously confis- cated. The normally law-abiding house wives shamelessly purchase all that their small funds allow. In their small boats the pirates are ever ready to flee from the law at the slightest warning. Such a scene is pictured in "T-he Lafittes' Black Market." Along one side of Jackson Square is a quaint passageway leading from the St. Louis Cathedral to Royal St. There are no worries in Pirate's Alley for the fear of the pirates is over. It was here that Lafitte hid when pursued, and concealed from the law, among the shadows of the alley, he was saved many times from capture. "Pirate's Alley". pictures this hide- out of Jean Lafitte as it remains yet in historic New Orleans. A scene that marks history is the race between the Robert E. Lee and the Natchez. New Orleans is alive with crowded docks and loud shouts as the two boats begin their hostoric race up the river to St. Louis. Many people, young and old, cheer the . ,- or c, boats at their start. The race is on! This event, only in the past of New Orleans, is seen in the mural "The Race Between the Robert E. Lee and the Natchez." It has been years since New Or- leans has enjoyed the festive occur- ence of Carnival. To the people of New Orleans, it is a traditiong to the people of other parts of the country it is a fantastic dream that becomes a reality in the "Crescent City." "A Carnival Ball" is a reproduction of a carnival procession in the Municipal Auditorium. The climax of the Carnival Season is Mardi Gras, and the climax of the Mardi Gras is the Comus Parade. The festivities of the day end with one joyous congregation to see the final Parade of Mardi Gras. As the king passes on his elaborate float, the spectators shout and cheer, the sleepy children extend open hands hoping .to get their last souvenir of Mardi Gras. Such a scene is the "Comus Parade", the final mural that the art students produced. - After the murals were completed, they were exhibited in Room 326 for a few weeks. Then they were sent to Godchaux, where they were displayed in the Canal Street windows. After a week there, they were sent to the New Orleans Public Library, and from there to the Bomber Base, where they will remain. For the art students it was a great pleasure to make the murals, and if they were able to bring a little pleas- ure to the soldiers of the Air Force by so doing, their purpose is indeed accomplished. They are grateful to the Red Cross for permitting them to undertake the project and feel honored that they were asked. In their way they have tried to bring a little cheerfulness to the recreation room at the base, as well as to the hearts of the soldiers there. Dorothy Samuelson '45. NEWMORLEANS Traditionally, New Orleans is the "City Tihat Care Forgot," the "American Paris" to the World. ' Today New Orleans is a progressive American city, the "Air Hub of the Americas."

The death of this great president, who only a few months before had, for the fourth time, taken the oath of president of these United States, came when the world needed him most. A Roosevelt entered into public life for tl.e first time in 1910, when he was elected to the New York State Senate. Three years later he was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy in which office he served for seven years. Roosevelt's true cour- age and character were shown in 1921 when he was stricken with paralysis and had to retire from pub- lic life. He worked hard to regain his health, and after only eight years was elected governor of New York. Then in 1932 he was elected to the presidency for the first time. No other American president had served so 'long and successfully won over crises of so many kinds. His ideas and strength of character would have gone far in making a 'lasting peace at the San Francisco Confer- ence. ' 1 His courage and true leadership had brought this nation out of the dark period of depression, and at the outbreak of this second World War his conduct and knowledge of for- eign affairs held America in the spot- light for the birth of world peace. It was at his first inaugual, March 4, 1933, that he uttered the words for which perhaps he was best known: "The only thing We have to fear is fear itself." The truth of this statement has been proven re- peatedly through his terms of of- fice. The name of Franklin Delano Roosevelt will go down in history as one of America's greatest presidents. Forty-six - 5 -..g.-n,.1..1.n1 1 .1 -. 1 .- .- 1 1 .- - President Truman , FATE brings to the American presi- dency in this critical hour a citi- zen from the Middle West. Harry S. Truman, born and raised on a farm, was the average American until he reached middle age a few years ago. He served with the American Expedi- tionary Force on the Western Front during World War I and returned home to be named to a 'minor coun- try office. After a few years he was surprisingly transferred 'to the United States Senate. As a representative- of Missouri, Senator Truman worked diligently. His efficient leadership of an investi- gating committee which rendered ex- cellent service brought him favorable national notice. - In 1944 he was nominated as vice- president on the ticket with Mr. Roosevelt. Now by the unforeseeable death of our outstanding chief, this Missourian becomes the nation's highest executive. Those who know him predict that he will make good in the White House as he made good in the Senate..Tre- mendous responsibilities have been thrust upon his shoulders. He, is called to make momentous decisions about matters which he had had no direct concern. But steady courage, ha good mind, the habit of diligence and the sturdy adaptability, he has al- ready shown, can carry him through. His first official declaration, pledging the continual fighting of the war on all fronts with all vigor and to a successful conclusion, is acclaimed by Americans and by the Allies around the world. All patriotic Americans join in of- fering their good wishes to our new president and sincerely hope that his administration will prove successful in all its undertakings for national and world welfare. --' 'Q J' -. English. 1 Program By Sharon Mattea,.'4-6 , 'MCMAIN students listened with much pleasure and appreciation to the splendid program on poetry, which was presented and prepared by the English and Music depa1't- ments. Betty Dufour, Mistress of Ceremonies introduced the subject. Poetry, one of the fine arts, appeals to the emotions and stirs one's feel- ings. The poet uses words as the artist uses color. A An epic, a narritive poem of high character, deals with a noble hsubject in ainoble manner. The Greek epics are the greatest and most famous of any country. Rosalie Rosenburg de- livered Alcinou's speech, written by the Father of the Epic, Homer. The form of verse closest to music is the lyric. -It ,is more "'personal" than any other type of poetry and the strongpersonal feelings it ex- presse do 'not remain the length of the poem. " Fleur Marcoux read the most popular of all love songs-"A Red, Red Rose" by Robert Burns. Two lovely old songs, "To Celia" bv Ben Jonson and "Who Is Sylvia?" by Shakespeare, were delivered by the Glee Club: Free verse, a forceful type of poetry that does not follow a regular pattern, has no rime. It has a pleas- ing roll and where the reader would naturally pause, the lines end. Carol Atkins recited "For You, O Democ- racy,,f' by Walt Whitman. -Other types of poetry illustrated were the ballad, by Lily B. Staehling and Dolores Lloveras, "Cruel Broth- ers"g The Sonnet "Nature", written by Longfellow, was given by Maja Raam, and Patsy Adams delivered "On His Blindness" by Milton. The ode by John Keats "Ode on a Greecian Urn", was given by Geraldine Camp- bell. The patriotic lyric by Henry Van Dyke, "Pro Patia", was recited by Christophel Nungesser. This informative program was con- cluded with the song, "Oh Believe Me, If All These Endearing Young Charms", by the Student Body.

Rubye Drumright, the business manager of the "Echoes", gave a short address and presented an award to Maxie Meek. who brought the greatest number of ads for the magazine. The staff of the "Echoes" was pleased with the sincere work these girls did and is looking forward to enjoying more of these parties. ' Home room 209, which won the prize for securing the largest num- ber of ads, made a patriotic gesture by donating its award to the Red Cross. Dolores Marsh, a student at Mc- Main, has decided to write an article for the "Reader's Digest" under the caption of "The Most Unforgettable Character I've Ever Met". The center of attraction. is Senorita Broussard, our teacher of the upper classes of Spanish. Dolores is spending her spare moments collecting bits of in- formation from students and teach- ers, as well as Seiiorita herself. It will take about a month to complete the-article and then it will be sent to the Digest. We all hope it will be published so that the world may know of the petite teacher who has done so much to strengthen the bonds of friendship between, the . two- conti- nents in the.Western Hemisphere. A, V An amusing incident- happened oneof Miss- B1-own's United' States- Histdryfclasses a few days ago. ' -The girls were 'asked to write the defini- tion of "suffrage". The majority of the answers proved to be boners. One definition was: suffrage-the short- age of money: Another stated that E-'Ci-H-OE-S f suffrage is the condition in which people are suffering. Finally the correct answer came along Cmuch to Miss Drown's reliefl. Suffrage is the right to vote. Once, again we are publishing a Senior issue of the "Echoes", It is fitting that we have a section de- voted to the class play. "'And Cam'e The Spring" is the play which has been selected as the class play for the graduates of June 1946. The cast is as follows: Mr. Jeffrey Hartman - Shirley Siegel Elliott Hartman-Mary Lou Soule Buzz Lindsay-Carol Shockey Keith Nolan-Peggy Robert Freddie North-Lucia von Gohren Mr. Fields-Betty Grethe Alan Fields-Rose Marie Letten Clancy-Bobbie Sue Blanchard Messenger Boy--Geraldine Owens Mrs. Louise Hartmna-Bitsy Pow- 'ell Midge Hartman-Janet Rieke Virginia Hartman-June Ducour- nau , Carollyn Webster-Juanda Corbin Gabby Allen-Beverly Guess Edna-Audrey Armbruster Mrs. Fields-Patricia Seghers Christine Meyers-Gloria Seymour The following has been said about the play and I quote it to give you an idea about the play: "There are plays and plays about modern American families. But only occasionally do two authors approach the subject with the freshness, in- sight, and humor which characterizes "And Caine The Spring", the new comedy by Marrijane and Joseph Hayes. f ' ' ' "Today, when comedy is especially needed in the world, these two au- thors' have 'supplied it lavishly, all' while preserving the naturalness and heightening thecolor of their inter- esting characters. It has often been said' that all good comedy springs from character. Although "And Came The--Spring" is full of unex- lf - "vinci '-, -Il' -r M .L pected and highly diverting situa- tions, the emphasis on truth and char- acter is foremost. "Life is made up of poignancy as well as laughter-and what is more filled with both these qualities than first love? What has more universal HPDQI? Here is a moving as well as an -'amusing picture of a first love which begins an avalanche of com- plications calculated to win the' ap- proval of even the saddest member of any audience. "Written with sensitivity, "And Came The Spring" skims along blithely as it relates the amusing story of the 'Hartmans when the youngest girl in the family finds her- self enormously successful ffor a whilel in her manipulation of other lines for her own ends. The story builds to deft and hilarious climaxes all the while keeping its eye on the human traits and emotions motivat- ing the characters." K At the beginning of last term twenty-five lucky girls were selected to be Senior B representatives and to carry on as representatives when they became Senior A's. They have been kept very busy throughout their senior year, collecting ring, picture, luncheon, and gift money. The of- ficers of they class are, Mary Lou Soule, presidentg Sara Jones, vice- presidentg Jane Clay, secretaryg Jo- anne Thornbury, treasurerg Mary Anne Thompson and Georgia Fischer, assistant treasurers. Since February they had met as a club group until April, when they were disbanded. One of the things they accomplished was deciding about flowers for grad- uation. Roses were decided upon, with pink and light green as class colors. Then they saw to' Senior A balloting, collecting various 'senior material for the "Echoes", and get- ting senior pictures ready for publi- cation in our magazine. Since the representatives have been disbanded, a small group of nine girls meet together at club pe- riod.- These girls have counted and drawnup the Senior ballots, discuss- ed the class poernfand song, and geni erally carried -on the' work 'of the Senior class, under the guidance bf Miss Carolyn'Steir, ourfaculty ad- visor., These girls, together with the whole Senior class, are looking for- ward to' graduation, the culmination of their high school life. il F Forijl-.veven 1 REPORTERS FOR ECHOES-Bottom row: M.

McMain Celebrates Pan American Da Bylsharon Mattes, '46 WHEN the Mother's Club met in April, a. colorful tableau of the spirit existing between the United States and the other Latin American countries was presented to them. All of the participants were dress- ed in' extremely realistic costumes and the effect was one of much color and vivacity. To add more to the Spanish setting, the art classes paint- ed huge fans of brilliant colors which were placed at the rear of the stage as a background. 'Spanish lanterns, scarves, resplendent in their bright Forty-eight colors, and smaller fans, also painted by the art classes were present, cre- ating the atmosphere of a Spanish garden. Katherine Schleuter really gave the audience the feeling of Being transported to romantic old Mexico when, she sangv "Una Vez". The Spanish classes sang "Ay, Ay, Ay," and "Chiapaneca," folk songs of Chile and Mexico respectively. Norma De Latte and Mellow Lesky danced to "Chiapaneca". The "Mexican Hat Dance" was also a great success, Lucia Von Gohren and Valerie Gati- pon ably performing their parts. The final number with America represented by the Statue of Liberty in the background, and the Latin American countries grouped around her, each bearing- the flag of her country, gave the audience the sensa- tion of actually seeing how closely the nations are united. On the whole, the program was most entertaining' and colorful. All who were present enjoyed it, and if President, Roose- velt, the founder, had been present in our auditorium he too would have been pleased with our efforts.

NJ... 0--fi Gym Night MCMAIN'S ninth Gym Night has come and gone and the only re- gret is felt by those who did not vol- unteer to take part. The auditorium was filled to overflow-ing and our hearts thrilled with satisfaction as we realized that each shining face represented not only an enthusiastic spectator but twenty-five cents- as well to swell the gym fund. This was 'our most successful gym night both as to perforniance and finances. Mr. Haas, President of our school board enjoyed each minute of the program from a -first row seat. It is the first time that we have been so honored by the acceptance of our invitation. ' The program moved smoothly along from the first number to the last. Dorothy Brisbi, an outstanding Ivory, welcomed the amidience and asked that they join us in saluting the flag and singing the national anthem. The first number was a club swinging E-C-H-0-E-S routine which demonstrated the pro- ficiency of the Seniors in handling those' tricky wooden gadgets. This number was followed by two tap dances by the Juniors, who acquitted themselves nobly. The' Danish gym- nastics demonstrated conclusively that free hand exercises are very beneficial for physical fitness. Now that the mothers havie seen thelir daughters in action we are very much afraid they'll have to help at home with the heavy work. , The Sewanee River tap dance was an outstanding example of women's ingenuity. One of the performers, having forgotten her mask, promptly covered her smiling countenance with a black hair net much to the amuse- ment of every one concerned. Trip- ping the light fantastic sometimes gets to be more truth than poetry and it is an accomplishment to be able to do a routine properly With- out making a mistake. We are duly grateful that gym students have but two feet to manage. It oftimes takes a. whole trimester to distinguish the left from the riht. L 11 sf- ryegra- i,. i -.-i.f,.i , ,igav H ,K.: The sixth number on the program consisted of tumbling, diving and pyramid building. Nearly two hun- dred girls took part in this demon- stration. With the exception of one or two girls who had previous work in tumbling the remainder were all taught at school and it is a distinct tribute to their ability that they were able to accomplish the beautifully co- ordinated' stunts and individual ex- hibitions. Next came the diving over bodies which always thrills both au- dience and performers. As a climax to this part of the program Jackie Karst was to pretend to dive over nine girls. Just as she started her run toward the girls crouched on the floor someone blocked Shirley Sieg- el's mother's view and when she again saw the stunt Jackie, after having straddled the bodies was com- pleting a forward roll. Mrs. Siegel is most distressed because her daugh- ter Shirley can dive over but one body. Shirley is having, a hard time trying to 'convince her mother that she saw the "positive" and "nega- tive" parts of the stunt and com- pletely missed the "in between". The completion of this sixth number was ably handled by the students who performed five pyramids with the smoothness and precision of profes- sionals. The last pyramid was a tumble down one in which all the performers did a good job of fall- ing flat to the mats. The girls them- selves were worried for- fear the audience might think it was an ac- cident. Their fears of course were groundless as the precision of the performance demonstrated the per- fect coordination of this difficult stunt. A A The Sidewalks of New' York, a waltz clog in costume, strengthened the audience's appreciation of the light fantastic in general and Thelma C'unningham's ability in particular. When Thelma becomes famous and wealthy we just know she'll endow her Alma Mater with a gym. Two prizes were awarded in this number for the best costumes. They were given to Thelma Cunningham and Dorothy Miramon. The seniors put on an old- fashion- ed square dance, She'l1 Be Coming in costume enjoyed by Round the Mountain, which was thoroughly performers and audience alike.
