MOTTO Work conquers everything
Well, we expect she flirts. If she looks at you,
you fall-so they say. Nevertheless she's a good
student, especially in her singing. Flossie is very
popular and we're sure she'1l be missed when she
goes to college next year.
Mary is one of our business students and we
suppose that she has already planned to be a pri-
vate secretary to a millionaire. The only thing
that will ever hinder her rapid rise to fame in the
business World will be matrimony-and there's a
great danger of that, we fear.
George is one of the shining stars of our class
in physics and geometry. He knows his science-
and how! The class agrees that we don't know
what we'd do without the best all around boy of
Although this is Lois' first and last year in E. C.
H. S. we have all come to know her and love her
as an old friend. She's full of fun, jokes, and
laughs and you are assured of a hilarious occasion
if she's around.
Well, folks, here we have fun-loving Nellie Mae.
As far back as we can remember Nellie has been
the jollliest one of the lot. And another thing.
she's studious and witty too.
"Ruby" has chosen business as her profession in
the big wide world. We bet she'll make a place for
herself too because she surely knows her short-
hand. She's full of fun and she's a fine sport.
Everybody claims her for her friend.
Elvene is a very dignified Senior, who spends
most of her time typing or trying to work Short-
hand. She is a very quiet girl. During the time
she has been going to school at old E. C. H. S. she
has put her heart and soul in its welfare.
You will always find this girl ready to go. She
is always very pleasant and usually smiling. Al-
though she is the smallest member of the Senior
Class she is not by any means least. This is prov-
ed by her attitude and faithfulness.
Just as the name "Stick" implies, this Suffolk boy
who jo-ined E. C. H. S. for his last year of high
school is very tall. The only regret that his class-
mates have in his coming here this year, is that he
didn't come before. Good luck, "Stick."
The star pupil of the Commercial class. She is
also the tallest member of the Senior class. She is
one of the jolliest girls in E. C. H. S. always smil-
ing and ready to play a joke on some one. There's
just one thing wrong with her. She doesn't teach
the others to be jolly.

Here's another one of the jolly, happy, and bril-
liant students of the Commercial class. She's a
little quiet, but you have to give her this, :he sure
is loyal to the ole Brick House.
"It could be worserf' Yes we all agree Shirley is
a good ole' girl. Whenever anything is doing you'l1
always find her there ,especial1y, if there's an
Apache dance to be done. She's known all over
school for her giggle and her dancing.
"Whilst we liveg let ws live." Yep, and "Shirt"
ever more lives up to that. As a Senior, she makes
a wonderful president and bosses everybody from
our dear little freshman to the haughtiest of
seniors. And she always gets what she goes after,
"The less a mang the more he talksfl We all
know "Red" is little but loud, but somehow we've
learned to appreciate his talking. Herels to the
red headed "it" of the Senior class.
"Maret" is one of the most jolly and full o' fun
senior girls, and as those who know her have learn-
ed, she has a lot of sense. We are sure that some
day she will be a famous woman dentist or mathe-
matician. Just give her time and she will get
there slow but sufre.

Doris is always ready with an original remark
to break the monotony of a lesson. She has proved
very eificient as Editor of the Spotlight. Doris is
one of the most brillliant pupils in the Senior class,
and the teachers are going to miss her good work
rand wide mouthl.
"Bunch" is the girl who always wears a smileg
who is always brimful of fun. She's not so interest-
ed in her studies, but we are all betting that she
will make a great cook and housekeeper some day.
Here we have a large part of the intelligence and
ambition of the Senior class. "Bee Rec" is indeed
a studious and competent girl. Though she works
on her school studies a great deal, she has a side
line. We will not be surprised to see her develop
into a great piano artist.
This girl is ever faithful to her school duties and
is always a willing worker. You' will never catch
her loafing on the job. No sir! She, unlike many
of us, realizes the true worth of an education, and
we know we will see her gain success.
Vera is a quiet girl. She is no great mixer but
when she is a friend, one more staunch cannot be
found. Although she never worries herself, especi-
ally over lessons, she seems to get along as well as
the rest of us. Let's hope this luck will keep on.
Albert is one of the nicest boys in our class. He
is full of school spirit and has done much to push
oulr class since we entered High School. He is
business manager of our Spotlight and has contri-
buted much to its success.
A good reputation is a fine thing to have, and
Roy has one all right. He is known to be a serious
minded and industrious boy. His quiet, pleasant
manner causes him to be admired by all who know
In every class you usually find some student who
always amuses everybody. Elsie can always be
pointed out as one of these pupils. Cheerful, never
downcast, her giggle can be heard above all, possi-
bly in keeping with her size.
Behold, our althlete, although George has won
many laurels both in football and basketball, he is
very modest about it and is girl proof despite the
efforts they put forth to capture him. May he
always remain so.
"Conky" is one of the shining stars in our class,
his red hair casts a resplendent glow Over all the
classroom. Never a better geometry hound was
made. Some day he will be a civil engineer at

In truth "Eddie" is a midget. However that does
not detract from his personality for he seems to
be quite popular with the opposite sex. Perhaps
"Eddie" has hopes to being a second John Paul
Theology, art, drama or teaching? We don't
know which but we believe he will succeed in what-
ever he chooses to do. He has read most every book
you can mention, is the most "Intellectual" boy in
the Senior class and managing editor of the Spot-
light. Thatfs all we know about this mogiest .elf-
conscious t?J fellow.
She is really "Carolina Virginia," and she has
grace and beauty enough for the most discrimi-
nating. We expect that the pounds and pounds of
candy and letters she receives from her masculine
admirers help to make her so "nice". We think she
will be in the theater business soon.
Cora is always full of fun. She is not only attrac-
tive but she is sensible as well. What boy is able to
converse with her without having her make some
"wise crack" that leaves him without a come back?
Perhaps this is why Charlie is so interested in her.
"Chap" is another little fellow of the Senior
class but the best things usually come in small
packages. He is very energetic and funny. In fact,
we've never seen "Chap" blue even though he does
forget to ring the bell when he is bell-hop.
Of all the stylish girls in the class of '29, Erlien
takes the prize. Not only this but also she is popu-
lar among the whole class. Another thing-when
she gets something good, she knows how to keep ity
Who said "beauty and brains don't go together?"
Frances is a Senior exception to this statement.
Give her brown eyes instead of her blue and you'll
have a modern Virginia Dare according to Mary
Johnston's description of the first white child born
Perhaps Ruth could be a bit more studious if she
didn't have a certain Newport News friend to day
dream over. We cannot say whether "Dolly" in-
tends to take her place in the woid as a business
woman or a housewife-that remains to be seen,
We grant you a peep at the jolliest member of
the class. Now, boys, don't lose your hearts to this
fair lassie before you consider the rufmor, Evelyn's
heart rests in a neighboring town. Hear it and
MARY BYRD SAUNDERS
Hard to compete with in books, even harder to
compete with in looks, and impossible to attain

Whenever there is any fun going on, count on
Sawyer to be there. He is always around with that
giggle of his. Although "Sawyer" could be a little
more studious, he is a favorite among his class-
Besides being a fine athlete, Carl is an all-round
good sport. He is very independent and care-free
and maybe this is the reason he is so popular
among the Class of '29.
Frank always is interested and takes a part in
the activities around E. C. H. S. He is very friend-
ly with his classmates and it is very seldom that
one sees him without that smile. Frank is a real
Senior and one we are proud to have. Here's to
the craziest of Seniors.
"Men of few words are the best men", said
Shakespeare. This one looks wise, but appearances
are deceitful. He is a grave, thrifty boy, as well as
studious. He is an eminent pupil of Mrs. CreWe's
Commercial class and has made high standings in
all subjects. We are sure that Fred will become
a leader in the business world.
"Gentle of speech and great of heart." "Pete"
possesses that bit of dignity that goes to make up
a charming personality. She has hosts of friends
and admirers in E. C. H. S. We wish Harmon
would tell us the secret of her popularity. We con-
sider her an asset to our school and wish her every
success in life.
"Do not take life seriously" Salute they laziest
person in the Senior class. Wilbur must have lost
his energy in the lower classes. Yet he seems to
be taking life easy. Although his ambition in life
is obscuvre, we believe it will materilize.
Frank is one of the most genial and likeable boys
in our class. His motto is the earlier to school the
better. We donlt know what we'd do without his
smile and ever present giggle.
Although she is another of those students who
remains with us only one year, Alice who hails from
Maryland, we of E. C. H. S. find is industrious but
not too smart. In our estimation, Alice is O. K.
A star! A star! Yes, a basketball starg Beulah
is one of the best players on the girl's squad. She
is another of the students who weren't born and
raised in Elizabeth City,, but nevertheless, she's
a fine sport, and weire glad to claim her.

We stood that day trembling and afraid,
And gazed into the faces
Of our teachers. And they guided us
To desks of oak and maple.
They lead our thoughts, and speaking gently
To us, calmed our apprehensions
lliith kindly words.
And the wind
And birds and trees and flowers
Xlhispered, and filled our souls
'XYith happiness-Qfor our
School days had begun. XYe stopped,
And like the bee, sipped a little
Cf the honey, to refresh ourselves
lYith its fragrance.
And as we
Sipped, the delight of another
XlVorld became our own: for we
Soon could add and subtract, read
And write, and ride in opaque
Glee with Baby Ray and his dog.
And the days rolled onig another year
VVas ushered in.
VVe tasted, then,
Again of the qualities of life
And found the taste not quite so
Pleasant, as it had seemed at first. For
VVe had learned that age means
Tears and heartaches, with one and
All - - - There was a teacher, too who since
Has passed from earthly things.
Rolled by, and with another dawning
VVe came, as third graders, to learn
Of worldly things. A fourth year, and
Then a fifth, a sixth,
And another, until they numbered
Seven. And we stood, and looked into
The future, and saw ourselves as we
Freshmen we became-
Freshmen in name and spirit. Unused
To the strange customs and practices
Of high school. But soon we learned.
And waging war with Latin, math,
Science, civics and English, we made our mark
And placed our foot upon the second step:
To become Sophomores.

Our egotism flamed into a fire, and
XYe fared forth to tell the world
That we, the class of 29, knew it

More to learn. f

Play progressed swiftly. VVith
Anxious hearts we practised the dignity
Of Seniority, which would soon be ours.
The year rolled by, and presently we stood
At the shrine of aspiration.
XVhere once we worshipped.
A funny thing-so coveted, so besought,
And yet so empty in onie's grasp.
The year has marked the pathway of
Our destiny. The year has marked
The climax of a school career.
'Ere another night has passed we
Shall have said goodbye.
.find it is well,
For school is but a firstly thing. The
History of our Class is a .nfarrative
Cf all history. Embodied in this
Class one finds traces of all civilizations:
The knights of old-the powdered statesinen,
The melancholy Burr-the stalwart jackson
And it is well.
School is like a
Gypsy band, that wanders thru a
Countryside, only to return to the
Honeysuckle country of flowers. Always
Roving, always singing, they lightly
Pass the time, until a heartfelt duty
Arises. Then each Gypsy forgets his mirth,
And works with a will.
May 17, 1929.
Gllaaa ldrnphvrg of 1929
By Frank Snowd en
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was the rainy evening of July
1, 1949. I was sitting alone in my library half asleep when suddenly I was startled by the
ringing of the telephone. Answering it I found it to be none other than my good friend
Prof. George Benbury, the mu-lti-millionaire scientist. I-Ie asked me to come over to his
house to listen and look in on his new static proof television set. I jumped in my car
and dashed around to his workshop. He met me at the door and together we went into
the giant room filled with all kinds of mechanism. After I had taken a seat, he pushed
a button and the room was plunged into total darkness. At a far end of the rcom a giant
screen was illuminated. Prof. Benbury walked over to the set and pushed in several
switches and turned several dials. One large dial was near my chair. When he began
turning this dial it was then that I first noticed the names of several cities on it. Turning
the dial to New York we saw and read the following:
Elsie Leary and Mary Byrd Saunders, of the firm Saunders and Leary, exclusive danc-
ing teachers, have dissolved partnership on account of an argument over Delmas Sawyer,
the new proprietor of Overman and Stevenson. Elsie and Mary Bryd were only shadows
of their former selves. Together I believe they would only weigh 100 pounds. Delmas
still possessed that Soda Fountain laugh.
The new gambling place, Monte Sarle, was opened today. It is managed by the
notorious Lois Bond and the former head of the negro school organization in this city,
Kenneth Munden. Ye Gods! Lois' once coal black hair had turned scarlet red, while
Kenneth still wore that Harry Langdon look of high school days.
Gertrude Glover, society belle, returned yesterday from Reno, Nev., where she secured
a divorce from the Rt. Rev. Frank Wilson, noted Holy Roller, who she has found out is too
intelligent for her. She plans to join Kack Mann at the Paramount Theatre as assistant
stage water boy. Both girls had on perfectly stupendous dresses to match their excessive
beauty. Frank seemed to be qufite nervous. This was a remarkable feature of him on a
Income tax receipts show that Harmon Taylor and Frances Pendleton tonsorial artists,
are doing the most flourishing business in the city. Frances looked more and more like her
little red headed sister while Pete still dressed like Clara Bow, a moving picture actress in
Shirley Fearing, a Salvation lass, has been decreed the best tambourine beater on
Broadway. The judges were Mary Barnes, Cora McKimmey and Vera Jennings. In
Shirley's hand was the cup winning tambourine. She wore high laced shoes and a shabby
black hat. The judges all reminded me of a bunch of drunk old maids.
At this point there was a sudden spurt of deafening noise and the vision became
terrible, but in a minute I found the noise to be the melodious voices and the bad vision
to be the beautiful faces of Elvene Culver and Roy Lane. The faces were beautiful, all we
could see was their open mouths, but the voices were terrible and we were forced to turn
to New Orleans where we found this:
Margaret Driggers and Evelyn Pritchard have been chosen May Queens in the Mardi
Gras celebration. The vote was unanimous. I could think of only one thing, an old
saying, t'Such Beauty Cannot be Surpassedn.
Ryland Davis and Nellie Boyce, two of the most popular young people in the city,
were quietly married today by Dr. Fred Stanton, D.D., at the Park View Church. What a
pity! Nellie's freckles have vanished. Ryland seems perfectly disgusted. Fred looked
worn out on account of his argument with a well known orator on the subject, "Evolution,
A Fact, No longer a Theory."
Beulah Wright and Wilbur West sang a duet entitled: "I'd Just As Well Rob the Cradle
as Rock The Grave". Beulah had at last lost that boyish bob and had substituted a per-
manent for it. Wilbur had procured a brown complexion from being a life saver at the
Myrtle Hill, matron of the home for blind mice, has been re-elected to this position.
Florence Ballard, a widow, has been chosen to act as the optometrist for the victims of
their fair institution. Myrtle had a wood-en countenance while Florence was chewing gum.
Erlien Newbern and Carrie Miller, motion picture actresses have fine little adjoining
apartments. Both girls were married therefore they each had a husband: but Erlien had
something else. It was playing on the floor with its dad, Chapman Nelson, noted White
wing sweeper. Chap has grown to be a physical giant, but Erlien and Carrie, were so
far back in the picture that they were not clear, however I could see the 1929 green sweater
that Erlien wore and Carrie was crying, possibly thinking of her high school days and a
certain Dodge car.
There was a loud bustle as the door of the laboratory flew open. In rushed Clay
Foreman. He told us he had been looking in at the picture through the key hole, and
seeing that last picture could not stand that location any longer, so we turned the dial to
Hong Kong, China, where we found this:
Norman Gregory and Alice Woodell have bought out the hair dye factory here. Mr.
Gregory will have charge of the black hair dye and Miss Woodell the red dye. I might be
color blind but that picture sure had Red's hair RED and Alice's black.
Edward Midgett, having lost Miserere Hettrick, a contemporary author, has taken the
appointment of ambassador to Africa. Edward was smaller and thinner than ever, and lo!
Miserere was still smaller.
Doris Harrison was going through a life of drudgery. Her husband Frank Snowden,
is having a hard time finding food for four by writing athletic articles for the Hong Kong
Screamer. Her mouth was open, her glasses were on and she had an impish twinge about
the corners of her mouth. Frank was like any ordinary writer. No hat on his head and
unshined shoes on his feet.
Albert Kramer and Neulah Raper are still being proclaimed by Barnum and Bailey as
their best trapeze artists. Twenty years have not changed Neulah or Albert, she still
longing for Joe and the filling station and he still longing for a certain Norfolk girl.
At Atlantic City we found:
Margaret Harris and Adrienne Davis were judged the two girls with the handsomest
physiques at this famous summer resort. Adrienne has grown as tall as Margaret, but she
does not rock and reel as does the latter.
Ruth Overman and Byron Sawyer are visiting in the city. He is the author of the
novel, "If You Can't Be Good, Be Careful". She is a noted palmist. Byron bore all the
marks of a marriage battle. There were several prints of rolling pins and flat irons on him
the same being made by the hefty arm of his elegant, brunette wife.
At Raleigh we found this:
George Little, Supt. of the Deaf and Dumb Institute at Dix Hill, reports a shortage
of dumbness at that fair institurtion and asks that more vegetables be furnished by the
State Equal-ization Board. George was a little bit cross eyed from straining his lungs
practicing a cornet in his youth and yelling at the dumb mutes at the Hill.
Elizabeth Bright, poser for the Palm Olive Soap Co., visited the city yesterday. That
same School Girl complexion.
Carl Scarborough of New York will play in "Flappers' Delight" at the Carolina tonight.
Eight piece orchestra. Those same enchanting brown eyes that have made many a good
girl leave home.
Elizabeth Evans, eminent missionary from Angelus Temple of Los Angeles, is visiting
ii? the city. While here she will help in the revival being carried on by the Hollywood
Church. Elizabethls voice was still as sweet as ever.
After this picture was flashed on the screen the announcer announced the end of the
program Prof. Benbury walked over to his set and turned it off. We then retired to his
library where we discussed what he had just seen and read, and we made a note that of all
of the people that we had seen tonight were our old schoo-l mates at Betsy Hi. The clock
in the hall struck twelve. I arose and put on my raincoat and bade my friend good night,
thanking him for the enjoyable evening that I had spent as his guest. When I reached the
street I noticed that the storm had ceased and above the top of the trees a vivid red moon
was casting a warm yellow light over all the town.
We the Senior Class of ,29 are leaving,
And launching our boats upon the sea of Life.
But we shall always be loyal to E. C. H. S.
Thru struggles, hardships, and strife,
There shall be hard winds blowing
That will rock our boats about.
But let us always keep up the fight
Vlfith a smile, and not a pout.
May we have courage to meet hardships,
And turn away the black darkness of night.
Let us keep on struggling. trying-
Until at last, we win the fight.
Eventually we shall come to a harbor,
But this will not complete our happiness.
We shall immediately begin upon the journey,
Up the road that leads to success.
Some of us will hold high positions,
And enjoy the pleasures which greatness will bring
But to those of us who hold small ones,
Let's not forget, "XYork Conquers Everything."
Class Poet-Ryland Davis.

AFTER THOUGHTS ON THE CONSTITUTION
By KENNETH MUNDEN
Winner of second place in State Finals of National Oratorical Contest
Bowing in gentlemanly fashion to one another, the powdered, wigged, and knicker-
bocker delegates of the Constitution Convention of 1787, picturesquely opened their final
and triumphant session. Randolph of Virginia seemed to be the most imposing figure,
for in opening the convention, he swayed his auditors by declaring "that the government
to be established must have for its basis the republican principle." The clock was wound,
and the pendulum was to swing back and forth in discussion, until the Constitution of
these United States had emerged. '
In turn, representation, slavery, state supremacy, executive, judicial and legislative
powers were thrown into the spotlight of controversy and disposed of. Every sentence-
every phrase-was weighed. and the speech of Sherman grew into a motto: "WE ARE
BUILDING FOR POSTERITYV'
The days dragged on-each statesman adding or subtracting, according to his personal
views, until finally the finished document lay before them in a halo of unprecedented
The artisans had shaped their clay wellg the government they had created was one
of liberty, it was a government of the people and of the statesg centralized to such an
extent that it was able to command the utility of ALL the states if needed. Its form
of administration was perfectly balanced: the legislative department was to provide laws:
the execu-tive function was to enforce themg the judicial was to interpret the constitution
for each of the other two.
And when all had signed-when the immortal document had received the last of the
illustrious names-there was silence in the great auditorium, as if the composers them-
selves could not recognize the immensity of that which they had done. Perhaps their
keen eyes were piercing the dim horizon of the future-the future with its skyscrapers
that loom into the air to grapple with the forces of nature-the future with its emancipa-
tion, socialism, prohibition and woman-suffrage. Perhaps, as the vision focused itself,
they were able to look into the heart of 19295 steamships, plowing their course from coast
to coast, electric sub-ways, with their hurrying, modernistic passengers, motor cars, radio,
television, trans-Atlantic flights, moving pictures, the throbbing, breathing Chicago of a
Carl Sandburg, or the decaying, monotonous Gropher Prairie of a Sinclair Lewis--And
so they dreamedithat night in September 178'7iwith the parchment lying in austere
authority before the assembly.
But the populace had become excited, and when the news of a government. of the
people, by the people, and for the people was relayed to their ears, the passionate rhythm
of liberty beat even louder in their pulses as they flung their joy to the heavens, crying,
even as the Roman Plebians had cried when the great Caesar lay in the Senate chamber
with a dagger in his heart: "Liberty, freedom, tyranny is dead! Run hence, proclaim, cry
it about the streets!"
In their preamble, the makers of the Constitution had declared it to be their purpose
to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, and secure
the blessings of liberty for themselves and their posterity. And has the Constitution ac-
complished these things?
Did it provide for a more perfect Union? A glimpse into the soul of America will
sufficiently answer. America today is the result of an untiring research in the needs
of a well-organized democracy. She has extended her knowledge into all fields-she has
become a leader in social and political affairs.
Has the Constitution established Justice? Look into the heart of our nation and you
will discover that America's judicial system has been woven into the fabric of our very
lives. The blind goddess is no longer blind-the scales are no longer uneven-justice is
And domestic tranquility? Ah! America not only has established peace at home, but
her citizens have played their role in the development of WORLD PEACE! With Presi-
dent McKinley, America made world peace a practical thing-with Woodrow Wilson, she
gave to the world the League of Nations-with Secretary Kellogg she challenged the
And liberty-equality-democracy? Let us look into the life of America: Far across
the hills and prairies and rivers in Oklahoma, an Indian mother sits before her tepee.
The light from the campfire flickers and reveals a tiny papoose clutched in her arms.
Her eyes are moist as she looks into the face of her child, for she is thinking of the future
-the days to come-when her boy shall be a leader among men.
In a mountaineer home of Tennessee or Kentucky, a mountaineer mother rocks with
grim determination a cradle made of rough pine boards. Her face has been hardened by
time, but her eyes are not dullg and they seem to rivet the steel barriers of time as
she muses-for she, too, is dreaming of the future exploits of her child.
In some Southern city, a negro mammy rocks to and fro in her boisterous manner.
Her very countenance seems to beam and the whiteness of her teeth is accented by her
dusky complexion. The lullaby which she is singing, rises and sways as she holds her
child aloft to view his dimentions and to tell it gleefully, that some day it will be another
Booker T. Washington!
In a luxurious apartment o-f New York or San Francisco, a society matron stcojs to
kiss her baby's cheek before going out to the opera. She too, pauses-and she visions her
child a genious, a realist, a captain in life.
What is the cry of these mothers? It is a plea for equality in opportunity. It is a cry
that increases in volume like the tones of a mighty pipe-organ in a massive cathedral.
And the Omnipotent Being, looking down from above, perceives that it is not only the
cry of a few, but that it is the VOICE OF AMERICA!
America has only begun. For centuries to come she will produce her best-the best-
in science, philosophy, art, literature, drama, religion and government. Time shall see
the cessation of all strife-when "men shall beat their spears into pruning hooks and their
shields into plowsharesf' When that day arrives, the Fathers of the Constitution of these
United States of America will have succeeded in accomplishing their ideal in democracy
of government. This ideal is portrayed in the immortal lines of Longfellow:
"Sail on, oh, Ship of Stateg
Sail on, oh Union, strong and greatg
Humanity, with all its fears
And all its hopes of future years
Is hanging, breathless, on thy fate."

The Song Boat manned by the Boy's Glee Club of E. C. H. S. has reached port after
a nine months cruise thru the seven C's. This years voyage has been the most successful
of voyages ever attempted by the ship. With Prof. J. A. Jones at the helm and a crew
made up of over a score of hardy sailors tvoicesl the good ship, Song Boat set sail in the
latter part of September to voyage thru the seven C's. At first it was easy going. The
middle C's were calm and easy to cross. Many ports isongsl were visited last year. When
the ship was nearing the higher C's a storm broke and some of the sailors became ill.
a few died. The ill were sent home and the dead were buried. The ship came out of the
storm with eight of her crew missing. The sailing became easier then and by a special
radio station fin chapell the ship communicated with its home port and told them they
had reached Harmony Land "When You Wore a Tulip and I Wore a Big Red Rose." This
radiogram told of several other ports that had been reached some in the lower C's. On
June first the good ship, Song Boat arrived at its destination with all its crew as hardy
as it was at the beginning of the voyage. We hope to have some more fine voyages in the
future and let us hope that they will be with Prof. Jones at the helm.
