THE ELLISIAN FIELDS
"Here 'mid the bleale waves of our rtrife and care
Float the green 'fortunate irler' " . . .
So, reading thus, Jhe Jlept and dreamed a dream,
Seeing a wondrour place
Wherein the jieldr that .the had read about
Were filled with folk of then, and now,
All having attributer of her own world
AJ well as ofthe days of long ago.
As she was walking through the green fields she found to her surprise that
she was being led by a guide, obviously immortal, slender, fair-haired, with winged
cap,' and sandals with feathers on their heels. "Who are you and what is this
curious land?" said she. "You are in the Ellisian Fields and I am the messenger
of this country sent by our rulers to welcome and escort you through our royal
domain", came the reply. Then this goddess whose name, in truth, was Herma,
continued to make known the customs and habits of this curious land and of its
inhabitants. This country was strange in that, instead of being composed of a
single people, it was a combination of many, all of one race, acting, speaking, and
dressing alike, with each division differing from the other as to age and experience.
Each group of the Ellisian Fields had a kingdom of its own wherein its members
played and worked, yet all come together from time to time for festivals and
were ruled by a common code of laws. The legislators of this land had traits of
certain divinities and heroes of whom she had already heard, and were known
as the Olympians. This band governed all the country, meeting at regular inter-
vals to discuss among themselves the welfare of each person and administrating
for the good of the entire populace. But most wondrous to hear, the folks were
female all! l Then, "Come',, quoth Herma, "behold that of which I have been
speakingf' And swift as a summer breeze she saw:

Our school days are over,
Here We cannot stay,
We have fought our battles,
All along the Way.
But with Christ, our master,
As We march ahead
We've not often faltered
Since He's nobly led.
Onward We'll continue
Striving for the right
With Lord Christ, our Master
Leading us to light.
Marching on beside us
Are his captains dear
Truth, and Love and Honor
Better friends each year.

This, our sacred vow:

THE INHABITANTS OF THE
A junioris been murdered, I know 'tis true,
So who pulled the job-was it me or you?
Iill give you the clues and also the story,
For the sake of the sissies I'll not make it gory.
Well, once on a peaceful afternoon
Two girls were walking and humming a tuneg
Doius was going to have her hair done
And SWEENE, who was BIGGERT, went along just for fun.
The shop from the outside looked DINKEY and BARRON,
They wondered if Doris would come out with her hair on
But 'twas no good to stand there just BAKKEN
So they gathered their courage and decided to walk in.
But while she was later REEDING under the DWYER,
She was shot through the heart and not any higher.
Was the killer a girl who was a little too FLIPPEN
Who could commit a crime without her plans slippin'?
Was it a person with Avmzs who is easily bored
And slays anyone who just isn't adored?
Or was he the type who thinks he's a KING
And by an "off with his head" can control everything?
Or was it the kind who is Hoccish at heart
And wants to be noted for doing his part?
Or was it by someone from T-ECK-ER some school
VVhere to murder a person isn't breaking a rule?
Is the murderer's heart so terribly BLACK
That his conscience stays white when he stabs in the back?
The culprit's at LARGE and will never be found,
For he MARSH:-:s through life without making a sound,
And the person who did it wasn't PETTY or low
Because it was Cupid with arrow and bow.
Doris saw a photo of a movie star-
Now guess who it was-for good guessers you are.

Twe'15y'm'le ELLISIAN FIELDS
The Ellis Alumnae Association was organized in 1919 through the eager
enthusiasm of three loyal girls of the class of 1918 and the invaluable assistance
of the five new graduates of the following year. Their wish to see the school grow
and expand and their untiring efforts toward this goal gave to the association the
impetus toward the good fellowship and cooperative feeling that it has today.
Since 1919, the Alumnae have grown in numbers to approximately two hundred
and seventy-five members.
The membership of the Association consists of two classes, namely, active
and associate. The active members are those who have been graduated from the
Ellis School and the associate members are those who have attended the senior
school and who have not graduated but are sufficiently interested in the school
to maintain this connection with it. They have the same privileges as the active
members, are as welcome in the organization, and may hold any office to which
they are elected.
The Alumnae Association is proud to be recognized as an organization which
has a definite place in the community. Each year contributions are made to
various charitable funds, in money or in "kind", VVhen money is scarce, the
members undertake such projects as making clothing and equipment for children's
homes or for other needy institutions. Several years ago the Alumnae set up
a scholarship fund which sends an Ellis graduate to college for one year-an
opportunity which she could not otherwise afford. The Association is an active
member of the Federation of Girls' Schools and is able to maintain valuable
connections through its organization.
The most important advertisement which any school has is through its
students, not only the under-graduate but the graduate. They are the ones who
can "sell" their alma mater. If a graduate of four or five years can fill a prospective
student with her own enthusiasm, how much more interested will that student
bel The only way to maintain this feeling is to keep such ties with the school
as are possible. The Alumnae Association offers this to every student. ,It offers
a means of maintaining desirable social contacts with fellow students. It offers
a happy satisfaction which comes by helping our school.
The annual benefit for the scholarship fund of the Alumnae Association took
place Saturday, February twenty-sixth, at the University Club. Margaret Brewer,
who was chairman, was ably assisted by alumnae from various classes, ,their
efforts resulted in a very successful and enjoyable dessert-bridge and fashion sl,1,C5.vsf.
1938 promises to be a successful year for our organization. It will be if evefy-
one will come to the meetings with enthusiasm. The Alumnae invites you future
Alumnae to take part in the Association and we welcome you all with eagerness!

'llhe Aces of Spades, our worthy gardening organization, has made an
extremely successful attempt during the past year to improve the grounds of
the l'lllis School. 'llhere were, however. many dilliculties to be met: the large
wide-spreading maple in lront of the West Building adds great beauty to the
lawn, but the handsome tree shades the ground to an extent which makes the
growth of flowers impossible. After due consideration the conclusion was,
that either the maple tree or the irarden would have to eo. ,-Xn observant per-
son may have noticed that the tree still stands, Then too. if the pupils can
control their dancing feet, bulbs will be planted around the borders of the
yard. Une might add that the annual Carden Party is considered an out-
standing social event on the school calendar. 'llhus one can easily see that the

'l'he Dramatic Club this year is under the guidance of a new directress.
Xliss Alean Grey. One important new feature has been added: the Charter.
which states. in black and white. the rules and rejrulations ol the organization
so that every girl may know and abide by them Cwe hopel. 'l'he method of
admittance. as stated in the Charter. has been changed. 'l'he aspirants are
now divided into groups and coached in a play by an old memberg then the
play is presented belore the old dramatic club and those actors approved are
admitted. However they do not become lull-lledyed members until they have
successfully passed a montlfs probation test. Now. moreover. we have a
president. secretary. and membership secretary instead of last year's presi-
dent. vice-president. and secretary. Various committees have been formed
so that each girl. in addition to acting. may also read. select. and cast plays.
direct. design and build scenery. or study costuming. A member is allowed
three cuts and if. bv chance or otherwise. she takes more her name is auto-
matically' dropped from the roll. However, as compensation, the criminal is
allowed to try asfain the following year for admission. Our membership list
has been greatly increased in 1937 and 1938 and we now have twenty-eight
members and hope to have many more.

Religious freedom! That promise alone brought thousands of immigrants to Penn-
sylvania. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries religion played a much more important
part in the daily life of every man than it does now. In almost every matter it controlled
his opinions: so it was no wonder that freedom of religion was a much wished-for condi-
tion. However, since the proprietor, of the territory, William Penn, belonged to the
Society of Friends, the colony was more especially open to members of that sect, and they
were not slow to come. They soon became the most important religious group in Pennsyl-
vania, but although they kept the lead for quite a while, finally some of the many other
sects caught up with them, and became as powerful.
The Society of Friends gained their name "Quakers" by saying often, "Tremb'i
before the Lord". They were a peaceful, quiet people, opposed to war and fighting. Thcy
loved their fellowmen, and did not believe in killing each other. They were also opposcfl
to taking oaths. Believing that all men were equal in God's sight and should be so 0:1
earth, they refused to remove their hats or by any other sign to acknowledge the superio -
ity of anyone. They accepted the Indians as brothers and became great friends with
them. They sternly forbade cruelty to animals, theatrical exhibitions, lotteries, and card-
playing, and would not tolerate beggars or drunkenness. Their religious services were
simple, and their churches plain. They believed in an "inward light", or conscience, anfl
met in church in silence that they might hear God's voice within them. Unless someone
felt moved to speak, there were no sermons or speeches of any kind. Their marriage
ceremonies were exceedingly simple. After obtaining the consent of the parents, and
having announced their intentions of marriage before several monthly meetings, the
couple received the consent of the Society. At the next meeting they stood up before
the congregation, and the man took the girl's hand, and declared that he took her for his
wife, and would be a faithful and loving husband to her until death. She did the same
and after they had both signed a certificate, they were declared married. The Quakers
did not believe in paid ministers, baptism, or communion, believing themselves to be past
the need of such things.
A great many Germans of different sects came to Pennsylvania. Among these the
Lutherans and German Reformed were almost alike, except that the Reformed Church
was more severe in forms of worship, and permitted no images, altars, tapers, or private
confessionals. Both sects sympathized with the Quakers against war, and during our
Civil War, many moved to Canada. They did not want schools any more than they
wanted to learn English. They built few churches, and preached in the German tongue.
This greatly handicapped them, and it was some time before they became Americanized.
Two old Lutheran churches are still standing: one at Trappe and one at New Haven.
Another church in Philadelphia, named "Gloria Dei", was started by the Swedes in 1697,
but was taken over by the Church of England in 1710, and became Episcopalian.
Another German sect was the German Baptist Brethren, or Tunkers. The name,
"Tunker", meaning Hdipperu, was given them because they baptize by complete immersion.
However, the name has been changed into many different forms: Dunker, Dunkard,
Tumpler, Dumpler. They sympathized with the Quakers in refusing to take an oath or
to bear arms, but unlike them, had both baptism and communion. They also had the
sacrament of washing each other's feet. They observed the simplicity of their forefathers,
and wore coarse clothes and long beards. Some went even further, and, breaking away
from the others, went into voluntary exile to enjoy greater mental and moral freedom.
They formed a little settlement at Ephrata, where they lived on vegetables and slept
on wooden benches with blocks of wood for pillows. They were called the Ephrata
Brethren, but the settlement did not last long, although some of the buildings are still
The Mennonites were a quite important sect from Germany, who came almost as
soon as the Quakers. They also were against war and oaths, ministers, premeditated

sermons, high education, and infant baptism. They, too, believed in an "inward light",
and were very plain people in speech and clothing. Sometimes called German Quakers
because of the likenesses in their beliefs, they differed only in retaining baptism for adults,
and communion. They practiced the washing of each other's feet as a token of humility
and brotherly love. They were allowed no gaiety or foolish laughter, and would take
no part in the government.
The Amish, still another German sect, arrived later than the Mennonite, but were very
much like them. They became farmers and settled in Lancaster County, which was the
best farming land in Pennsylvania. There they have lived ever since, continuing their
early customs. They keep to themselves and never entertain anyone not of their own sect,
although any Amishman is treated with great hospitality. The men wear their hair
cut round-a-bowl, and after marriage allow their beards to grow long. Unlike the Quakers,
their weddings are great celebrations. On her wedding day the bride, for the first and
last time in her life, wears a black bonnet meaning "until death do us part", and the groom
throws away his razor forever. After spending the morning listening to sermons, the
whole company, consisting of all the Amish in the neighborhood, spends the afternoon
eating. Each takes at least four helpings of everything, and they have much more food
at one feast than we would have at several. Then they sing and talk until midnight, when,
if the bridegroom manages to escape, the newly married couple leave. However, it is an
old custom for the unmarried men to capture the bridegroom and throw him over a fence
to the married men. If they did not like him, they throw him back and forth indehnitely.
The Amish marrying season is from November lst to Christmas. The prospective brides
and grooms get their marriage licenses in town very early in the morning to avoid the
curious city people who gather to stare at them. Girls are expected to marry at about
eighteen, and after twenty they are considered dangerously near spinsterhood. Parents
advertise their marriageable daughters by simply painting their gates a bright blue.
The Moravians, usually thought of as Germans, originated in Moravia, and came to
Pennsylvania about 1739. They adopted the feet-washing sacrament, and had inclination
toward the communal life. They were opposed to all kinds of warfare, and took no
interest in politics and government, but had a system of family discipline somewhat similar
to that of the Quakers. They held marriage a sacred duty, and regulated it strictly. The
church often helped a man to choose his wife, and communicated his proposal to her.
Their main object in Pennsylvania was separation from the world. They were an orderly
people, neither rich nor poor, but self-respecting and respecting others. Several of their
early buildings still exist and are in use at Bethlehem. Among these is a line old church
with a belfrey from which, according to ancient custom, a trombone choir ushers in
Easter morning at sunrise.
Two late-comers to Pennsylvania were the Presbyterians and the Episcopalians,
who came in the very early eighteenth century. The Presbyterians, almost all Scotch-
Irish, were a hardy, hot-headed people, fond of Gghting, and very independent. They
were excitable in temper, and rebellious of anything that seemed like injustice, but were
not lacking in either patriotism or hospitality. They conhned their sermons to hard-
headed logic, and rejected the ceremonies and powers of the Pope. They also believed
The Episcopalians were more like the Roman Catholics than any other sect. They
had vestrymen and many ceremonies. Although strongly in favor of peace, they were
even more strongly against most of the ideas of the Quakers, especially in connection
with the government. They started quite a lot of trouble with the Quakers, but did not
become really important as a sect until a later date. Several of their early churches are
still standing in and near Philadelphia, of which the Christ Church is perhaps the most
Many of these sects still exist, continuing to some extent their early customs. Some
that are now quite important had few followers in colonial Pennsylvania, and several of
the less important sects of that time have since completely disappeared. Thus one can
see that there really were quite a few sects in Pennsylvania who answered the call of
religious freedom. It is interesting to note the influence each has had on the growth
and prosperity of our state, and on its early government. Today religion does not seem
to be as important a factor in life as it was then, and we scarcely appreciate enough our
fine heritage of religious liberty.

MY FIRST OPERATION
The first time I Watched a surgical operation was a trying and nerve-racking ex-
perience. About nine-thirty one fall morning I was awakened and told, without any
warning whatsoever, that if I hurried to the hospital I could watch Dr. M- operate.
Without waiting for further information, I leapt out of bed and dressed in about three
minutes during which time I debated whether or not I should eat any breakfast. Deciding
against food, I rushed out of the house and started at a lively pace toward the hospital.
The nearer I came to my destination the more qualms I had and the more bottomless
my stomach felt. I began to picture an operation as the epitome of everything that was
gruesome and bloody, and I grew so worked up that it took all my will-power to keep
myself from returning home. Upon arriving in the hospital elevator, I told the boy my
floor, he looked rather surprised and said, "But that's the operating floor," I put on a forced
smile of reassurance and nonchalance and said, "Yes, I know it." Upon reaching the operat-
ing suites, I was at even more of a loss than before because all the doctors and nurses were
rushing around looking busy and important and, deciding, that I would be definitely in
the way, I chose a secluded corner and stood there very unobstrusively.
The head nurse soon discovered me, however, asked me what I wanted, and, after
I had told her, brought me a cap and gown. She then asked me whether I had ever
watched an operation before: when I said that I hadn't, she proceeded to tell me what
to do in case I felt faint or ill. At this point with operations apparently taking place in
rooms all around and ether fumes everywhere, her very suggestion was almost too much,
but I controlled myself and mustered a faint smile and a fainter thanks. I spent about
fifteen minutes waiting around alone and when finally the doctors were ready, I was in
a terrible state. But, I was taken into the operating room, placed at the foot of the table,
and told not to move or touch anything. I felt that if I could survive the sight of the
first incision I should be all right. Fortunately I did and immediately I became so inter-
ested and fascinated with the operation that I completely forgot myself. I feel since
that this was one of the unforgettable incidents in my life and I'm glad I didn't ruin it
by displaying any of the weaknessess of my sex.

He felt himself falling, falling into space: a horrible emptiness filled his being and
he awoke with a start. His eyes became accustomed to the darkness of his room while
he lay there trying to remember the events leading to the fall. Bah-nothing but a
dream! Still the rest of the night he tossed uneasily on his bed.
Morning came, and he set out to work. The dream of the night before was forgotten.
Coming to a huge framework which would soon be a skyscraper, he rode a beam up, up, up.
Finally, at what might be considered the twelfth floor he jumped onto the scaffolding.
All forenoon he was busy inspecting beams, going over each joint carefully. just
before noon he came to the edge of the great framework and did a very foolish thing:
he looked down. Fascinated he watched the city below hurrying-scurrying, little
antlike people seemingly racing madly from store to store. Drawn by an unknown
force he swayed slowly over the edge of the framework to see better. Suddenly, he
felt himself falling, living again his dream. Vaguely, he wondered whether he should
soon wake up.
Strange, he now seemed to be a spectator at an accident. An ambulance clanged
loudly up the street and stopped. Men in white leaped out and picked up a shapeless
form. Horror was written on the faces of the passers-by. The ambulance clanged noisely
down the street.
He was walking aimlessly around and around. Time seemed as nothing. Night
apparently passed. The man took no special notice. Walking, walking, walking.
At noon, led by something-what it was he knew not-he entered a church which
seemed familiar. Even the people seemed familiar, but he was unable to place them
among any he knew.
At the back of the church sat a man alone and apparently at prayer. The onlooker,
who had just entered, rushed over to him.

THE GUADALUPE SHRINE
While in Mexico during the Christmas holidays, we visited the shrine of Guadalupe--
the holy of holies of the Catholic Apostolic Roman Church. This shrine of the Virgin
of Guadalupe is to the Mexicans what the Ganges is to the Hindus and the Nikko to the
Japanese-sacred beyond words.
The shrine of Guadalupe has a very interesting legend. Back in 1531, an Indian
of low-birth, baptized and christened Juan Diego, was crossing the slope of a barren moun-
tain. While walking he heard the beautiful soft strains of sweetest music, and, raising
his eyes, he beheld an arc of glorious coloring. As he drew nearer he saw, in the radiance,
a lovely and fair lady, who called to him and asked him to come where she stood. When
he reached the spot the beautiful lady told him that she was the Virgin Mary. She
wished that a church should be built where she stood, and she charged Juan Diego to
hasten at once to the Bishop and inform him of her will. The prelate did not believe
the Indian's story, although Juan made repeated trips to the Virgin, and was always
told to tell the same thing. Finally the Bishop requested some sign by which he could
believe he had actually been told the commands of the Virgin. juan returned to the
heavenly Mary, who bade him climb a hill, pick roses from a miraculous garden he would
find there, wrap them in his mantle and take them as a sign. Arriving at the Bishop's
gate, he unfolded his mantle, and behold, beneath the roses was a figure of the Virgin,
painted on the mantle, itself.
Far and wide spread the tidings of the miracle. The Mexicans were almost delirious
with joy and religious enthusiasm. The crowds which fiocked to the Bishop's palace to
see the divinely painted hgure became so great that it was placed on the altar of the
Cathedral at Mexico City. A church was built in 1532, on the spot indicated by the
Virgin, and the sacred mantle was transferred to it in a solemn procession.
In a gold frame, the picture of the Virgin occupies the center of the altar, and is
covered with a very thick plate glass. It is six feet long and two feet wide. It is
stamped upon a coarse cloth fthe mantle of Juan Diegol, and considering its great age,
it has kept the brilliancy of color remarkably well. The figure appears to stand on a half
moon with the points upward. Beneath it, is the upper half of a figurine of an angel.
The features and complexion of both are supposed to be similar to those of a noble
Indian girl of the period during which Juan Diego lived. Don't fail to see this shrine
whenever you have an opportunity to visit Mexico.

HOW T0 ACT UNDER WATER
By HEMILY BOST
My dear public, I am afraid that many of us overlook swimming manners which, in
reality, are of great importance. If you want to be the all-around "it girl" take heed
to the following words of wisdom:
Let us suppose that you are invited by the young man in your life to go for a plunge
in the neighborhood pool. First, in order to retain the maidenly charm, don't wear one
of those bathing suits that are two sizes too small. Do not spend more than an hour
in the bath house, however, if you have a permanent wave I would suggest a bathing
cap. Upon arriving at the scene and discovering that the gentleman of your acquaintance
has a rather meagre physique it is advisable not to laugh at him: don't jump on your
escort when he enters the water to help you in. While in the act of swimming try not
to have your feet kicking in his face. Swimming under water is done in the best of the
families and by all the debutantes, but I would not recommend staying under water too
long as the boy may wish to talk to you. If you know how to swim, don't insist on having
the lad hold you up, as he is probably having trouble himself. Last, but not least, it is
very poor etiquette to remain in the pool after the regular time as the bath houses will
be closed and you will have to go home in your bathing suits.
.The above rules may seem difficult to follow but there is a simple solution to the
entire problem: either what is commonly known as "horse sense", or buy my little book,
Where Not To Do It, and Why, found on any inexpensive bookstand.

THE FIRST TIME THAT I WENT TO THE DENTIST
One fine day when I was approximately five, an insidious sort of letter arrived at
our hitherto happy home. This missive was one of the notices so often sent out by health
centers requesting parents to guard carefully their children's first teeth or suffer the dire
consequences of neglect. On various occasions relatives had cast exploring glances into
my mouth, but never had I met anyone who had more than a friendly interest in the
progress of my incisors and bicuspids.
A short time after the coming of the letter, however, I was borne off by an inexorable
hand to the dentist's office. As the first antiseptic whiff met me at the entrance, instinct
told me that this was not the place for me. It was too late, however, to raise any protest
as a despairing glance at the Hrmly-closed door instantly announced. Then a white-
coated male figure appeared and essayed to lure me with honeyed words into the inner
sanctum. At once I sat down upon the fioor where I was and refused to budge. Coaxing
and scolding were of no avail. At last I was bribed by permission to play with the
dentist's tools and I allowed him to insert a cautious finger into my mouth without im-
mediate danger of a bite. Even then I was suspicious and when he reached for his tiny
mirror, I gave up the struggle and escaped temporarily under a table. Nothing could
make me return to the chairg so the whole idea of improvement was given up for that
day and, rather exhilarated than tired by the ordeal, I permitted myself to be escorted
victoriously home again. Whose teeth were they anyhow? I would continue to protect

WHY WE GO T0 SCHOOL
flmaginary interviews with High School studentsj.
I'm just an ordinary high school student-not very bright, but not too stupid.
'When Miss Wells, my English teacher, asked me to be on the board of editors of our
school year book, I was thrilled beyond belief! "Go around and talk to the girls," Miss
Wells continued in her soft, drippy voice, "and find out why they come to school. It
will be very interesting. You might also ask them what their ambitions are." So, I did,
and this is what I found.
The First girl I interviewed-my, but I felt like a newspaper correspondent, to be
which, incidentally, is my ambition-was red-haired Sally Crandall. "Goodness! I don't
know why I come to school," she said, "I guess it's because everybody else does-it's the
natural thing." That was a lot of help, but just then, Betty French appeared. "Why do
I come to school?" she questioned in startled surprise, "I have to! Oh, for the good old
vacation!"-and she was off on her favorite topic again. "Might have known," I growled
to myself and left her talking to the walls.
"My ambition is to be a girl in the chorus! Yes, I know you're astonished, but a
chorus girl has such a glamorous existence. ,lust think of the flowers people send you,
and the men swooning at your feet and-and-there's always a chance of getting into
the movies!" This from blond Anita Lewis who always reminds me of a walking
"Oh, that's easy," chirped petite Susan Lothrop, the "Pride of the Sophomores",
"I come to school because I like to. Besides, if one desires to go to college, one must
have a secondary education."
"Now, whom shall I ask next?" I asked myself, "Oh, yes, Sylvia Snyder." Sylvia
Snyder is an English girl who has been in America for only a few months. Her point
of view would be different, probably. No one knows very much about her except that
she lives with her grandfather in a big, old house on Elk Street. "Well," and she smiled
shyly at me, "I do not expect to go to college, though I want to very much. I shall
live with Grandfather and-I donlt know." I could see that her mind was wandering to
other places, so I left her to her thoughts.
jane Darlington, our most popular girl, was my final choice. When I asked her
the fatal question, her brown eyes twinkled merrily as she said, "I think this explains
what I feel. It is from the Fairy Queen by Spenser:
" 'Why did my parents send me to the schools,
That I with knowledge might enrich my mind,
Since the desire to learn first made men fools,
And did corrupt the root of all mankind?"'

One day a very smartly dressed girl took me away in her car to New York, which,
I soon learned, was to be my future home. During that first week I longed for the

New York certainly is a queer place. I saw great big cars with people sitting on top,
and taxis which didn't stop when you expected them to, and did when you least ex-
pected them to. It was sometime before I became used to the lack of grass. I had always
eaten a lot in the country because I had heard it was good for my digestion.
On my promenade each day I passed many dogs. Most of them were very snooty
and ignored me when I was trying to be friendly. There was one I especially disliked.
He was a foreigner and his hair was cut in a very queer fashion. I knew he, must be a

Tonight is the most exciting night in my life! I am going to meet Noel Coward!
Betsy Brown is giving a party at the Biltmore, and she has a friend, who has a friend
that is bringing him. Of course it won't be very thrilling, just going with Bob who is a
mere sophomore at Yale, and my cousin into the bargain. But after all I can't except
to go with Mr. Coward himself-at least not the first time. Let me see, I'll wear that
blue satin dress . . . it makes 1ne look older. I'll tell Noel Coward that I am twenty-one,
instead of seventeen. And I'll talk about his wonderful plays, "Bittersweet," and "Design
for Living," and "To-night At 8:30." What's this? Why, they are gardenias from Bob!
That really was sweet of him.
Well, I met Noel Coward, and he was simply wonderful! He didn't come until late,
when all the other sub-debs thought it was about time to go home. He was awfully un-
impressed too, when I raved about his plays. But he only smiled sweetly at me when
I told him I had seen him at Claridge's in London. He has the most charming British
accent. But now that I think of him, he was quite human, and just like other people.
Oh well . . . I wonder how Bob liked him? It really was grand of him to take me.
After all, I wonder to whom Mr. Coward sends gardenias. I still have Bob's, though
they are awfully brown, poor things.

He kissed me with his tender lips. Ah me!
To feel the touch of those sweet lips again,
To listen to the magic of his voice,
To see his starry eyes gaze into mine,
Alas! it's more than I can hope to do.
An hour with him seems but a minute to me.
Oh! were he not a hated Montague,
Then could I love him and have peace therein,
Instead of always keeping secret love-

Of Romeo and all things beautiful.

THE NIGHT BEFORE FINALS
I didn't dare go to sleep, and yet I knew that I must eventually. All too soon dark-
ness began to close in on me. I struggled against itg but all my efforts were useless. I
could feel the obol under my tongue, and the honey cake against my palm. I then knew
that I must make my annual trip to Hades. For every year on the night before Hnals
Pluto sends Hermes for me.
As I came to the Acheron, old Charon, the ferryman, said to me in his sly manner,
"Pluto will be more than glad to see you this year."
I gave him his obol, and got out as quickly as I could. Cerberus, the watchdog,
gave an unusually ominous growl. He smacked all three pairs of his lips with a most
disgusting noise. He knew I had a honey cake for him.
A few minutes later I stood in front of my three judges, Minos, Radamanthus, and
IEacus. Pluto was looking on. He had an insinuating smirk. I wondered what awful
sentence they would inflict on me this year. As I watched them they began slowly to
shake their heads. I had a horrible sinking feeling. My heart was in my slippers. All
of a sudden I heard the dreaded word "Tartarus." It was terrible! Other years I had
been sentenced to horrible jobs Clike saying Latin verbs for what seemed years and yearsbg
but never to Tartarus.
When I finally collected my senses there were powerful hands holding my arms back
of me. Millions of people began to yell, "Throw her over."
Again and again they yelled this. They did, of course, mean to throw me over the
cliff. I was to be hurtled a hundred feet through space before I landed in the hated place-
the final place. The judges gave me the signal that was to end me. I could feel the air
whizz past me. Suddenly I felt a dull thump. I had hit bottom. Ever so slowly I began
to open my eyes. I expected to see the Furies preparing a lasting torture for me. To
my utmost amazement I found myself staring at my own bedroom rug.

monkey was still there but he was playing with the other monkeys and swinging
with his tail. He is a smart little fellow.

THE STORY OF A BOY AND A GIRL WHO FOUND A TURTLE
Once upon a time there was a boy and a girl. One day they found a turtle. He
was a brown turtle. Their mother said they could keep him. They drilled a hole in
his back. They put a string in the hole and led him with it. One day they went to
town. They tied him to a fence. He did not like the string. He twisted and turned,
and broke loose! And he started for the road! A Gypsy saw the turtlel The Gypsy
thought about turtle soup and that was the end of the turtle!
Louise Eddy, Grade III.
CLASS GOSSIP OF GRADE EIGHT
As Caylor was walking up Gilbert's Hill she met McCune, a silver Smith. She
said, "Have you heard the latest news of Wil's son and Ed's ward?" They are to meet
at the Waltonight, but I fear she feels Cooley towards him and is Kuehner about
just then Davis, the Hunter stopped and asked if they had seen a Dinkey Coch run
by. They all joined in the search but strange to say they never found the Roemer.
Anne Wilson, Grade VIII.
THREE FIVES CLUB
Our club is named the Three Fives Club. We named it that because there are fourteen
children and our teacher which makes fifteen. VVe made valentines for children at the
hospital. The Homeopathic Hospital sent us a letter of thanks for the valentines. We
are now making scrapbooks for them. They are pretty and lots of fun to make. The
club meets every other Friday. l'Ve take half our time making things and then we have a
game. After the game we have refreshments.
Michelle Burke, Grade IV.
The girl I am about to describe
has short, black, wavy hair. She is
eyes. Her creamy tan complexion
obedient and thoroughly disapproves
is five feet three inches tall, Fifteen years old, and
attractive in a severe way and has serious brown
is always without a blemish. She is quiet and
of fun. School is a delight to her and she simply
adores all of her teachers. She enjoys doing homework but thinks that we do not get
enough of it. She thinks, moreover, that school uniforms are good looking and enjoys
wearing one even on Saturdays. She never goes to dances and, to her, Shadyside is only
a section of the city and the "Big Apple" a brand of fruit from Oregon. The only
"Truckin' she knows is that done by the railway express. Lectures and operas are
her favorite forms of amusement. She probably thinks that "Garbo" is the name of a
well-known soap, and that Tyrone Power is something sold by a utility company.
She hates the taste of lipstick and thinks that nail polish is used in shining tacks. She
likes Danish exercises-but basketball is too rough for her. Getting up in the morning
does not bother her, in fact she enjoys it. She is never late to school, and scarcely
misses a day. This girl is a mythical character, as you have probably already guessed.
She is the dream of all parents and teachers because she is the perfect school girlg but
neither you nor I have ever met her, and I hope we never shall.
Ann Baker, Grade X.

,Q -4- 15 v- we '. I, 1 ' -I -
The first time I met Him I just sat and stared,
Unconscious of dangers I should
And without any wailing or gnashing of teeth
He quietly shaved off "the hair underneath."
The next time I met Him I was fully prepared,
I had gone, seen, been conquered-and also been scaredg
So instead of just quietly "playing the game"
I howled-to his anger, but poor
The third time I met Him I was
Having urged Mother constantly not to be lateg
While He snipped I sat silent with nary a sob-
You see, I was getting my first
CWith apologies to Joyce
I think that I shall never see
A creature jumpy as a flea,
A fiea whose hungry jaws are pressed
Against a poodle's curly vest,
A flea that crawls on furry patch
And makes a dog twist 'round to scratch.
She put on her new gown
And curled up her hair.
For a boy from the town
She put on a new gown
And minced up and down
His heart to ensnare.
She put on her new gown
And curled up her hair.
Katharine Kerr, Grade XII
A fiea that may forever dare
To try his luck in coarsest hair.
Upon him oft a paw has lain
Causing his speech to be profane.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But why did God create a Hea?
Ann Reymer, Grade XII
THE NIGHT'S A' "DOON"
Ye bonnie blankets o' my bed,
How can I leave ye now 'tis light?
How can ye chant, ye Ioathsome clock,
And I sae weary fra last night!
Thou'l1 break my ears, thou noisy thing
That wantons to disturb my rest!
Let bluebell ring and birdies sing,
But be thou still, thou vilest pest!
Romola Griswold, Grade XII. Ruth Janney, Grade X
ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD
Star of "Met,"
Drops of rain.
Deep, and cool, and dark,
With the twitters of the happy lark,
Fragrant fiowers and trailing vines,
And baby hemlocks and giant pines.
Tumbling water, quiet brooks,
Obscure paths and shady nooks,
Sunlight filtering through the trees,
And Mother Nature's gentle breeze,
This is the woods.
Marcella McNulty, Grade IX.
Alice Reed, Grade XI.
JUST IN BETWEEN
A lawless band the Ellis Eight
Not yet subdebs,
But just you wait!
From long legs, pigtails, knee-length stocking
We'll soon emerge with ideas shocking,
To swell the ranks of graduates
Oh! happy, carefree Ellis Eights.
Mary Lou Gilbert, Grade VIII.
When time came round for school to begin
Who greeted it with greatest vim?
When Freshies came-that green-horn band
To join the ranks of Ellis grand
Who welcomed them with heart and hand?
When Tarbell called loud for a team
Who marched right up with pep and steam?
They played the game from start to end
And all the bruises they did mend.
The fact is true beyond a doubt,
The school could never do without
We're glad we're Sophs, it won't be long
Till we can sing our goodby song
Then on to Junior land we must
Plod on, with lots of work and dust
And not forget when we were just
Ruthanna Weidlein, Grade X.
CTO the tune of the Ellis School Songj
1. Weary and woebegone we go 2. Oh, Ellis School we praise
Our heads are bowed, our feet are slow. Thy high and noble ways
On many a stair our step has rung But give us a little cain to raise
Up many a scale our song is sung. And we'll be happy all our days.
We fear not work or mark
We suffer in the dark
We strive our teacher's voice to hark
Altho' it surely ain't no lark.
Priscilla Painter and Jean Eddy, Grade IX.
THE STORY OF A HOUSE
There's an old, old house in the lot across the street
But no one's living there to keep its gardens neat.
No one is living there to sweep the dust away
Or clean out the attic where the cobwebs stay.
Sometimes I still imagine that someone's there
Where the ladies are escorted still by men of lofty air.
Sometimes I see them strolling 'neath the spreading chestnut trees
And I watch the mothers bouncing their babies on their knees.
Now I see the couples dancing stately minuets
And many people walking with their favored little pets.
And children dancing merrily or playing on the lawn.
There is music, dancing, laughter, from evening until dawn.
But when I wake from dreaming, my vision's gone away,
Happy, short, and fleeting, it did not come to stay.
There's nothing but the old, old, house
So dismal, quiet, gray.
Kathleen Oliver, Grade VII.
ELLISIAN FIELDS Fifty-eight
Once there was a happy mouse
Who lived in a hole in the wallg
One day when he had left his house
There came a cat named Paul.
Paul waited for the mouse to come
Waited outside his hole:
He sat until his paws were numb
As quiet as a mole.
And mousie thinking all was clear
Came creeping round the door
VVithout a little bit of fear . . .
But Paul then took the floor!
He pounced on Mousie right away
And changed his fur with fright:
Mousie until that day'd been grey
But now hc's snowy white.
Carol Hays, Grade VII.
Everyone's happy for now spring is here
With robins and buds, the best time of the year.
A sweet chirp of music floats from the trees,
When the flowers bow down to the wandering breeze.
The children are playing out on the lawn,
Joyfully singing that Jack Frost has gone.
The grass is soft and fresh and green,
And seldom a cloud in the sky is seen.
Anne Fair, Grade VII
Cartier discovered Montreal
And for the French he did it all.
The Indies were his aim
But St. Lawrence is where he came.
Barbara Ann Anderson, Grade V.
Stuyvesant was governor
Of the New Netherlands
He was the last, oh what a bore!
His temper worse than any man's.
jean Ruffin, Grade V.
I like the snow,
I like the snow,
Away sledriding I will go.
Diane Dallye, Grade III.
A HAPPY PUP
On a dusty road trudged a weary pup,
His tail was low but his head was up:
His tongue was panting from the heat,
And sharp stones cut his tiny feet.
An old T Ford came rattling up,
And stopped beside this lonesome pup.
Said a stout little man who was smoking a pipe,
"Doggone this Hat tirep I must try a new type."
Then out of the car jumped a smiling boy,
And the puppy's heart was filled with joy,,
For the boy took the little puppy home
And fed him biscuits, meat, and bone.
The puppy now has a happy home,
And never again does he care to roam
To some far off place to be lost again
And suffer such misery and pain.
Anne Fair, Grade VII
O shimmering sea that sings all dav
Sometimes you're blue, sometimes you're grayg
Upon the beach your waves do roll,
Songs of the sea they seem to toll.
Men earn their living out of you,
By catching crabs and fishes too.
Your .tides do change both night and day
Now in and out-why don't they stay?
In life important parts you playg
O sea! we need vou in every way.
Audrey Hillman, Grade VII
A GOOD CURE
VVhen Harry's Ma went to his room
She heard but moans and groans.
He muttered sore within the gloom
For pain was in his bones.
"Oh! Oh!", he cried, "I'm sick! I'm sick!"
I'm much too sick for school.
His mother thought it was a trick
And showed she was no fool . . .
"I must call Dick: to him explain
You can't see him today,
Because you have an awful pain
In bed you'll have to stay."
Harry at once was out of bed
"I'm not that sick," he quickly said.
Becky Hays, Grade VII.
