The set turned to one of the observers 1n the grand stands one Bear Colllngbourne who
had recently cornered the oat market and sold short for a very neat profrt In the face of the
camera the Bear calmly l1t a c1gar wtth a frfty dollar btll
The next place of lnterest was a cabln ln the desert of Arlzona rn whlch a lone arttst re

The camera was next focused on the Chrcago area where several of the great class were
to be found

prosperous syndlcate that had slot machlnes all over the state Havmg used hlS tnfluence
to legalrze the one armed band1ts he was now trylng to make them a reaurrement for every

lhrs year the Dorm Councxl was cornprlsed of srx boys representmg the

fllansky who were on last year s councn we e automatrcally on rt Georcua
Srms and Pete Blelby Were then added to make 1t a councrl of four As the
year progressed the councrl felt that they were ln need of more members and
Consequently Ralph l-lorwrtz and Ioe McConnell were added Two Weeks
later Art Smukler was also added to make the group complete
The purpose of the dormrtory counc1l IS to help estabhsh rules m the dormr
tory and enforce them When a rule IS broken the md1v1dual IS reported and
on Wednesday mghts the person IS brought down before the counc1l and hrs
case revrewed After h1s or her case IS revxewed and all the facts are accu
rnulated the person rs sent back to hrs room to study Each phase of the case
rs carefully d scussed and contemplated and fmally a verdrct rs dec1ded upon
Erther he or she IS excused or a punrshment IS levled e1ther severe or mmor
dependmg upon the serrousness of the c rme The reason for estabhshmg the
Dorm Councrl was not to punr h the boys but to help them adlust themselves
to the rules of the school lf an mdrvrdual had any suggestrons to help make
the dormrtory a better home they could present thelr ldea to the councll and
they would do thelr best to have the plan carr1ed out
Be rdes hav1ng a hand 1n student government the dorm councrl was re
sponslble for worklng ln the Squrrrel Cage 1n the recreatlon room every

This year as usual the Aeichlorians were a very active group in the school
program lt was through the efforts of this organization that many of our
social functions were such successes and the school has shown ample appre
ciation to these girls for their Job well done
The club is composed of all girls in the upper school and it is thelr 1ob to
direct any extra curricular activities for which they might be needed There
were made members
Throughout the year the Aeichs were hostesses at various functions of
formal or informal value In the fall the girls acted as hostesses at several
teas following the football games played at our home field The largest of
these was of course the Homecoming tea on Saturday October 25 ln the
Winter the girls were hostesses at several mixers and on February 21 they
gave their annual formal dance This year it vas entitled The Crystal Ball
and the dining room of Sears Hall served as the ball room The decorations
carried out the theme in soft blue rose and silver Music for the fete was
furnished by Maurice Norltngs Orchestra
A more serious side of social procedure was taken up durmg the late
N nter and early spring in the study of manners and etiquette Special
stress was g1ven to table manners and introductions
The club s president for this year was Georgia Sims who was assisted by
lane Nichol vice president and lean Shillmglaw secretary while Phylhs
l-larbula managed the treasury The two advisers for the year were Mrs
Durtsclu and Miss Moore
I rl . I . . l A I I . V. S .
were eight old girls in the club this year, and in the fall, thirteen new students

War 15 hell a man once sa1d
And as l look ahead l dread
The thought of seelng men around
Me kllled mthout a Nord or sound
Except the .ffh1sper brought DY death
Escapmg rn a man s la t breath
l wonder rf l too shall dre
Wlthout a Nord but ,ust a s1g'1
To tell the Lord ol all my rns
So ltfe anew and heaven begmns
Instead ot hell wn1ch round rne rergn
A dev1ls sea of hurr1canes
But when the calrn agarn returns
The trre belofv st1ll burns and burns
Ur't1l 1t bursts upon the earth
I Watched the sun set o er the golden sea
And heard the ceaseless roar ol breakmg waves
Upon the endless sands that seern so free
The sand whose bleakness IS as countless graves
The trde rernalns through all etern1ty
And breamng waves vvlll never cease thetr roar
The sun w1ll set for many more to see
And glearmng ands w1l1 ever slcrrt the shore
They do not llf but ev ry age endure
Wh1le we are born and barely feel hfes touch
Before the clarrn ol lrfe wlll death assure
And hold your soul tn hrs eternal clutch
The sea the sky and stars Wtll all rerna1n
Then Why lS hte on earth lor us ln va1n7
To shame and k1ll tne peace whose blrth lvan Pavhn 50

I poured myself a glass of beer and stood gla s rn hand starlng out over the moonlrt
expanse of desert A mosqulto buzzed close to my ear and I brushed 1t away lmpatlently
I paced back and forth rn the small tent The expedztton was not gotng as well as I had
thought We had been dlggrng for a sunken tomb shown 1n an ancrent dlagram to be one
hundred frfty feet from the Great Pyramld So far our excavatlons had d1sclosed nothxng
and our hopes were runnrng low
Nervously gulpxna down the remarns of my drlnk I pusned out rnfo the n1ght The moon
was at 1ts zenlth but I dtdnt notrce I walked atmlessly my hands sunk deep ln my pockets
curs1ng the lrfelong ambrtron that had brought me h re Who was 1t that once sard
Archeology IS lrke a drsease 1t knaws at your vltals untrl 1t consumes you? Deep ln my
thought I stumbled by the Sphtnx and found myself standmg before the btg pyramld and
before the tra1l whrch leads to the top On an lmpulse I began to cllmb Ftve thousand
years ago the surface had been smooth Tnangular blocks had been fltted lnto the angles
of ucceedrng steps Now the decaylng stone and debr s had agam fllled the angles and 1n
another few thousand years th1s stone monument would be only a h1ll of stone and gravel
Short of breath I garned the too and paused to collect my self I looked around The desert
that lay behtnd had lost dtstrnctness of outltne ana had b come a soft floatxng sea of sand
The velvetv ftelds of gram and grass were dotted wtth clusters of palms and 1n the dlstance
lay the N1le glrttertng 1n the blue lrght Sudd nly I felt myself expand and become a part
of the desert waste The pyramtd I was resttna on became not an ancrent ptle of perlsh
able rocks but an element a part of the earth to watt through ttme unt1l we and our ClV1l1
zatron and our languages and manners shall have been lost and forgotten
When New York and London are legends the future generatlons w1ll look upon the pyra
mrds as w do today wrth awe and admtratton I realrzed my work though drscouragtng
at tmte was all Important tn preservmg for the future the monuments of the past

When I see skters fylng by
I Nlsh that I could take a try
When I see footballs rn the a1r
I w1sh that I could run and tear
When I see drvers plunge the deep
I wrsh that I could Jump and leap
But people say I wouldnt survtve
Its funny Im only ntnety ftve
