If a full house means success, the commencement this year was certainly that, for both nights the auditorium was crowded to capacity. The audience was swiftly carried back into the eighteenth century as five quaint ladies in crinolines fliuth Klinck, Marjorie Brubacher, Kay Lorch, Florence Arnold, .Maureen Thurl and five stately gentlemen in 'ruffles and lace, danced the "Royal Minuetn to Beethoven's Minuet in GH while the chorus sang fitting words. Miss Axford directed the dance. And by the way the gentlemen were Esther Soehner, Ruth Mulholland, .lean Hoffer, Betty Brown and Dorothy Hill. Under the direction of Miss Harper and Miss MacVicar, the students pre- sented the comedy 'cNellie McNabb',. Helen Stratford, played by Vivian Hoffer, is a social climbing widow with two charming daughters, Connie Dillon and Betty Vice. Mary Woznuk played the part of the maid. Mrs. Stratford, we find, is secretly married to "her John", better known as Ross Weichel. Asrthe climax approaches, Connie an- nounces that she has broken her en- gagement fhe was such a wonderful manlj, and Betty, we learn, is a bride of a month, unknown to her mother who does not approve of Ralph Rob- bins at all. And John, wonder of won- ders, is really the author of the "advice to the love-lornn column--Nellie Mc- Nabb l "The Black-out Mystery" was direct- ed by Miss Evans. During a practice black-out, the Howe diamond is stolen, and the newly-engaged maid, played by Eleanor Kerrigan, is murdered. The audience is held in .great suspense as the policeman, Albert Lorch, skilfully un- ravels the enigma and pins the deed on Edward O,Krafka, a cunning diamond dealer. Mrs. Howe, a nervous, high- strung widow and owner of the broach, is played by Kathleen Kalbfleisch, and the part of her cool, young daughter is taken by Margaret Brubacher. "Memories',, directed by Mr. Hobden, portrays the thoughts of a young man tlialph Robbinsj, as he is about to en- ter the holy state of matrimony. His former sweethearts appear before him as the chorus sings appropriate songs: "My Mom" CAlice Ciesj, a sextette from "School Days" fShirley Seiling, Ramona Bird, Doris Wilken, .lune Mor- lock, Beth Brown, Betty Schaeferl, a. trio of "Three Little Maids from School" fBetty Brown, Kathleen Lorch, June Lutzl, an Irish colleen fKathryn Con- nellj to the tune of 5'When lrish Eyes Are Smilin',', a bonnie Highland lassie' Uean Hofferl dancing the Highland Fling to '4Loch Lomondn, Hlilosaliel' lShirley Cunninghaml, 6'My Sister and I" tDerry Woodall and Marie Zingerl dancing a clog 'to "O Du Lieber Augustinw, a debonair gypsy maiden Uane Shurlyj dancing to uPlay, Fid- dle, Playv, "Mexicali Bose" fEleanor Slimmonj, and a violinist fDorothy Hilll playing ulntermezzof' The groom's thoughts are interrupted as the bridesmaids fFlorence Arnold, Beverly Bricker, Lois Lee, Gloria Mey- erl enter to "To-night We Lovew. The entrance of the bride Uean Brubacherl is announced by the strains of "Here comes the Briden. Following "The Bells of St. Mary's,' the curtain closes as the bridal party moves off the stage to the wedding march. Behind closed curtains the chorus is heard singing "Memories". The school pianist, Alice Henrich, was at the piano throughout the' evening. -An interesting feature on Saturday night was the valedictory address by Pte. Arthur Weichel.

But by the middle of my second class it seemed as if a little demon had man- aged to reach the interior of my head and, finding it empty, was dashing madly about beating on all the walls and choosing as particularly satisfac- tory ones my temples and eardrums. Several hours of this found me, at noon, quite woozy and ready for bed. Mother, being a typical mother, immediately gathered her weapons and prepared for a battle. I glanced up 'once to see quite an array about me- aspirins, cold capsules, nose and throat spray, and the proverbial "knock-out', drops, to say nothing of a mustard plaster which she brought in. When she withdrew I found myself under a mountain of covers and feeling some- what like a peanut in the process of being roasted. I dozed off then fthose 'fknock-out" drops are wondersl, and when I awoke I found that my star boarder, the demon, had called in all his little friends and they were having a party. They were all having a gay time bowling and playing tag, except one little fellow, who sat quite com- placantly drawing a piece of sandpaper over my throat. Quite fiercely I thought, "I'll fix them", and I swal- lowed three aspirins, which they com- pletely ignored. The next day I was advanced, definitely I was Hin the pink"-or ra- ther 'uin the red". My nose and eyes both took on a,fiery hue and I mopped incessantly eat them. That ,was the day the doctor came. He stood beside my bed and seemed quite jolly about the whole thing, I wonder why doctors al- ways feel they have to be cheerful about everything-maybe itis a complex! I glared at him from both my red eyes and said with as much dignity as I could muster, c'You wouldn't thing id was fuddy if id were you." Neither would he laugh, I thought, if he could see those red spots running around his head, but he didn't and he went off again after telling me to stay in bed like a good girl and giving me more pills to take. V Four 'days of almost isolation and then I was allowed to totter downstairs if I remained on the chesterfield and stayed "nice and warmw. By this time I was tired of kindly advice, but I was glad to take this bit, for I found that in the last four days I had aged seven- ty years, and I was weak and stiff. I began to wonder where I had lost my youth when I discovered there was still hope for me. Suddenly food, which had been so queerly nauseating to me late- ly, resumed its former important posi- tion in my life. I was on the mend. . When I was able to enter the social world again, I found hardly a person had missed me. The unseliish thing to dowould have been to be glad, but somehow I was disgusted, and when someone asked me if ,I had had a cold, I said, in a voice that had sunk to the pitch of -a bulIfrog's, "Oh, no" and looked daggers. But no one even no- ticed, and so I believe the next time Ilm inclined to get flu I shall get pneu- monia instead-at least I'll get credit for what I go through. -VIVIAN Ho-FFER, XIII. 17 , yzgfffifv 1 . 11- ,- ,C ""a.", - ' V s" ,'-,'vE?v 41 -. .f 1 f f r I' 15 l n , If - .',,w' 'J 3, 1 W . ,, ' 5,145 1, H - ' 14, 1 11,91 f ,'a'-,fmt , J IQ . .. .4 M,-,.'

Brownie would tug at the leash, indicating the speed and direction for Keith to go, while two or three pedestrians stood watching, nearly getting run down by an oncoming car. Whenever an unex- pected car would come looming up, he would lean his huge body against Keith's leg, in this way stopping him, probably just in time. A friendly per- son advanced to offer aid, but Brownie stopped him with just one look, a bristling of hairs, and a show of big white teeth. Brownie trusted no one. Brownie was a big, brown, muscular brute that kept a watchful eye on his blind master. Sometimes when he looked up in-to those sightless eyes, a cloud seemed to pass over his face. Perhaps i.t was a wistful, half-pitying look, for the one and only friend he had. But now he had the feeling of repaying his master for all he had done 'for him. - '- Maybe I had better tell you how Brownie came to be a helper of the blind. It all happened one dark night while Keith Campbell tossed his bruised and worn-out body in his damp, dirty bunk away over in France. The screeching of the dropping bombs, a volley of bullets whizzing by, the anguished cry of a buddie who had been wounded, and now was dying-all these sounds penetrated Keith's aching head. Then there was a lull. What was that? No, it could not have been, but yes, it was the low, whimpering whine of a dog. How Keith loved a dog! Thoughts of the little brown spaniel waiting for him away back home filled his mind. The whimpering seemed close, so, drawing himself up on his stomach he proceed- ed to crawl out of the dug-out. Lying low for fear of a German sniper, he reached the side of what seemed to be a baby elephant, but no, it was just a big, brown dog wounded and bleeding badly. He had been shot through the thigh. W , 4 18 uHere, boy, nice old fellow," coaxed Keith drawing himself up beside him. The wagging of -the big tail and the happy little yipe made Keith know he was a welcome visitor. Keith managed to get him back to the dug-out, and there attended to his wounds by the light of a dim lantern. When the other boys came dragging their tired bodies into the camp, they were taken aback by the-sight of the escaped dog lying in the arms of Keith -I say Hescaped dogi' because he had broken away from -the German lines. The Germans had trained a number of dogs for spy dogs and here was one, right in our camp. Keith and all the fellows grew to love him. It was a while before all the wounds were healed on his body, but soon he was Keith's right hand man, always beside him through thick and thin. Then came that memorable day and night, which I shall never forget. It had been a particularly hard day, and then, at night, a German bomber came over and dropped a bomb on our dug-out. Oh! What a sight! Indeed I shall never forget it! Anguished faces por- trayed unutterable suffering, limbs were broken and badly mangled, and parts of bodies lay here and there. Keith lay white and still for many days on his hospital cot. All was dark- ness for poor Keith because now he was blind. That Hun had done his job, but we repaid him double and triple the following week. Keith was sent home and with him went Brownie. Now as I sit here in my arm chair, selling shoe laces and pencils ffor I lost both my legs in that fearful bomb- ingl, I watch Brownie guiding Keith carefully and surely through the traffic jams up to talk to me. My eyes grow misty. I just can't help it. Perhaps when I see people going around with their bodies whole, I cannot help but feel my position and poor Keith's. But the bitterness passes when we remem- ber that our sacrifice was for the 'cause of freedom. -SHIRLEY CUNNINGHAM, XI 3 Q, - , -TQ X LT?

We were gath- ering the ripe golden grain. It was my job to look after the grain while it was being blown into the granary, my bro- therls to take the empty wagons back to the men in the field. This was usu- ally the way, but- 'LEleanor," my brother pleaded the second day. 4'Eleanor, will you take the horses back? I'm tired of taking them back all the time. Iill watch the grain, if you will.'7 So I agreed. All went well for I had our own familiar team. I felt quite happy and carefree as the horses trotted briskly back the lane. I sang "Waltz me around again, Willief' literally duetting with the wind which at that moment happened to be wailing and whistling, and several echoes answered me. I arrived at my destination safely and just as safely brought the load of grain to the barn. The second wagon, however, had hitched to it a strange team, our neigh- bors'. But I started out bravely to take them, back singing HWaltz me around again, Willie!" QI had that particular song on the brain that dayj. Then sud- denly I became aware that something was wrong, very wrong, the little black horse was rather jumpyg then. . smack! something whacked him across his belly! He leaped up. . . and was away, dragging his mate with him. First those horses paced. . . they they gal- loped. . . then they flew. fa runaway horse runs blind and wild!!

If only I can get them pulled into the fence, that'll stop themli' I thought, frantically pulling on the lines. Apparently when horses run away they're oblivious to anything but running, for they paid not the slightest heed to the tug on the lines. But I kept on hoping and "At least I'm getting a swift free ride. . . Waltz me 20 around again, Willie. . . I'm pulling as hard as I can. . . ah! they're respond- ing. . . I'll get them stopped yet. . . yi-i-i the culvert! . . Waltz me around again, Willi-e - around, around. . . crash! bump! bang! . . . . . . around . . . around . . . around! I sat up, bumping my head on the wagon, which was overhanging me and on a drastic angle at that, and thinking that after all, a ditch, especi-ally if it is just off a culvert, isn't such a bad place . . . not if you consider all its good points. I saw the wagon. . . a wreck. . . the tongue gone. . . the rack broken. . . I rose gingerly only to find that my silly knees were trembling so that I could hardly stand.

Both of them were members of the British Embassy, and, judging from their heavy boots and costume they were enjoying a walking tour of the countryside. They were nearing the town of Braunau in the summer of nine- teen hundred. Below them were the tracks of the State Railway. Suddenly one of them pointed toa spot along the tracks. p ' "Look!

Mingled with this feel- ing of sorrow is the feeling of hope as we look anxiously toward the future. Now we are all faced with the realiza- tion that we have passed the first and perhaps the most important milestone in our lives. lt is as though we have come to the crossroad where each must choose the particular field of endeavour for which he or she feels most suited. This decision is perhaps the most mo- mentous that we have yet had to make because we realize that when it has once been made, the die is cast and each of us must face a perplexing world which has been turned from its normal course through the mortal conflict now being waged by the Allies against our ruthless enemies. lt would be fitting on an occasion such as this that we recall our first impres- us and our achievement Do you re- we used to sions of the life around mental development and throughout our early life. member how as children stand in awe of the distant blue sky, how we were unable to comprehend the cloudy and disconnected facts of the world, and how we so simply and unquestionably obeyed our parents' will? As we passed through boyhood and girlhood days, a few facts became clear but many more uncertainties and doubts caused deep speculation. Such vague things as infinite space and in- finite time entangled our minds. ' These perplexities, however, were soon lost and drowned in the rapid movement of all things about us. The great power of huge locomotives and their delicate mechanisms aroused the interest of many. The sight of a fire engine racing madly around corners was no less of a thrill to others. The L, - , v s . . ...W --M LV T.. Yi ,V -4' heroic deeds of soldiers, the saving of lives by doctors, the gentle care of nurses, the headline fame of baseball players-these all altered our thoughts and desires and directed our minds to new fields. ln High School we no longer believed what we were told without iirst weigh- ing and considering the matter. World problems, scientific achievements and political developements became the fa- vourite subjects of discussions with friends. Five years of High School passed all too quickly and only then did we realize that we had been tossed out on our own into the midst of a war- torn and war-minded world. Each student thus looks back on by- gone days, not with the feeling of re- gret, but of joy, not with the notion that much time has been aimlessly spent, but with the conviction that great things have been accomplished. -Distance and occupations now separ- ate the graduating students from each other. Some have taken summer courses at University and now have good posi- tions, some at present are taking their first year at University, some have re- lurned to work on their farms at home, and a large percentage have oined the Armed Forces. Now we all must bid farewell to our beloved school, to our fellow students, and to the teachers who so patiently helped us to understand the many whys and wherefores of the various subjects. Many years from now our thoughts will still drift back to the happy days spent at E.H.S. Students racing madly down the corridor to beat the final bell, the would-be chemists of fifth form mix- ing the wrong chemicals and uneasily waiting fon the results, the worried ex- pression on everybody,s face before exams, the gaiety and goodwill of all at parties and hikes, the blank stare of the Algebra class as the Binomial Theorem was being explained and the 21 rousing cheers of a group of students in the balcony during a basketball game,-never will these be forgotten. Now, it is my personal wish that each one of the graduating class may come to fulfill the hopes and aspira- tions which are ever present in his or her mind. I speak for all when I say we shall do all in our power to reflect credit on the Elmira High School and on the teach- ers who laboured so faithfully to give us the material from which we may shape our future lives. In closing, I think my fellow gradu- ates would like me to leave with you some final thought which will convey to you the aims and ideals that we shall try to foster in the coming years. Longfellowis poem "A Psalm of Life" would perhaps best express that thought. X U. In the worldls broad field of battle In the bivouac of Life, Be not like dumb, driven cattle, Be a hero in the strife. Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant! Let the dead Past bury its dead! Act--act in the living-Present! Heart within and God o'erhead. Lives of great men all remind us We can make, our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footsteps in the sands of time. Footsteps that perhaps, another, Sailing o'er life's solemn main, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, Seeing, shall take heart again. Let us then be up and doing, With a heart for any fate, Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait." -ARTHUR WEICHEL, '43 QC-Jntinued from page 201 still iigure. MA dog, no! lt's. a young boy!" V T ,lust then the shriek of a locomotive whistle was heard. Both men, without another word scrambled down the steep embankment and ran up the tracks to the young lad who was lying with his chest on the iron rail. The men. fran- tically pulled the lad's body off the tracks, as the train thundered past the spotg then came the screech of brakes as the train shuddered to a halt. The train men came running back to where the two men were bending over the boy, who was now regaining consciousness. Wfhen the young lad was able to talk, he said that he had been running down the very steep embankment, had stum- bled and had hit his head on the rail and had apparently collapsed on it. The engineer now came forward and excitedly told the two men that they had saved the boyls life as he would not have been able to bring the train to a stop in time. Quite a crowd of passengers had joined the gathering by this time, and one of them who was bending over the boy exclaimed, HI know who this young boy isl It is young Adolf. His father is the customs officer at Braunau, and the boy wants to be an artist. You two men saved the life of a boy who some day may be a great painter. Herr Schickelgruber will be eternally grate- ful to you." -ELEANOR KERRIGAN, XI L. R.

KITCHENER PHONE 2-4237 -I ' 2 7 Baakk' BOUGHS BEND OVER Merida Parlow French 'sBoughs Bend Overn, written by Maida Parlow French, is one of Can- ada's latest novels. It is a story of the courage and hard- ships of a well-to-do Tory family which has been forced to leave its home in Albany to seek refuge in the vast mys- terious forests of Canada. While the party of settlers is encamped for the night on the shore of the St. Lawrence, en route to their new home, the little grandson, Colin, wanders away into the forest, becomes lost, and lives for five years with an Indian tribe. The author skilfully relates the hardships endured by the family during the severe Can- adian winter as the little settlement grows up on the banks of a small creek flowing into the St. Lawrence. Vividly portrayed are the courage and endur- ance of these settlers when their crops fail and winter bears down on them. A love affair between the young daugh- ter, Ann, and a boy of whom her father disapproves, complicates the story, as does the dark secret and strange beha- viour of Colin's mother, Rachel. After many unsuccessful searches, the story ends with Colinis safe return, with a reconciliation between Ann's father and her lover, and with the final triumph of the settlers over the diffi- culties in a new land as the boughs of the forest bend protectingly over them. -DOROTHY HILL, GRADE XIII CHARLES II - 1770 ACT OF PARLIAMENT "All women, of whatever age, rank, profession or degree, whether virgins, maids, or widows, that shall, from and 'after such act, impose upon, lure or betray into matrimony, any of His Majesty's subjects, by the scents, cos- metic washes, artificial teeth, false hair, spanish wool, iron stays, hoops, high- 28 heeled shoes, bolstered hips, shall incur the penalty of the law in force against witchcraft, and like misdemeanours, and that the marriage, upon conviction, shall stand null and void." 1 Bac -seat Driver Of all the obstacles to surmount in the world, there is none more formid- able than that animated stumbling- block, commonly known as the back- seat driver. .Drivers are a quiet, easy- going, even-tempered class of people who are not easily riled, but, when subjected to the merciless torture of one of these vultures even the 'beswt of them is liable to fly into a tantrum and go about the rest of his days babbling like the proverbial fool. The back-seat driver is a menace, not only to the sanity of the unfortunate driver who has fallen a prey to his ravaging, but also to the lives of all those in the car and in all the other cars on the highway, not to exclude anyone who happens to be within one hundred yards of the roadway at the time. In his madness, however, he has a method, which results from months of practice. He begins by 'remarking upon the speed at which some of the reckless persons whom he knows drive, a discussion on the sharpness of the curve on this road follows, then, to thoroughly confuse the driver, he drops a few subtle hints as to the right side of the road, the proper way of holding the wheel, the application of the brakes -when suddenly and from nowhere a truck looms up and immediately he becomes a screaming maniac fsome- times accompanied by frothing at the mouthl and with his wild thrashing he gets the driver himself so rattled that he loses control of the car and is promptly killed by the oncoming truck. Therefore, dear readers, if you have any inclination to be a hack-seat driver, please try to correct the error of your ways and make this world a happier place in which to live. 'I .

P ELEANOR SLIMMON, XI The Tale of cz pitafe On a southern island in the tropical seas, A palm tree waves in the soft, cool breeze, A monkey sits in its branches there, Eating peanuts without a care. "I,ll tell you a story," said the palm tree old, ' 'fT he tale of Pirate Pete so bold, Who stole here in the dead of night On his lonely ship, the 'Phantom Light'. The night was dark when he searched this land For a place to bury his gold in the sand g Under my branches was the chosen ground, h Where he dug the pit without a sound. Into the pit he lowered the box, And covered it up with sand and rocks, Then silently he stole away, And I've never seen him since that day. But he'll return some lonely night, s On his mystic ship, the 'Phantom Lightf To carry all his gold away, Then disappear before the day." ' JEAN VEITCH, IX B 29 The hephelza Uunior Prize Poeml Here comes the shepherd, swinging his crook, And on his face is a peaceful look. He lov-es to care for his helpless flocks, Which wander afar among the rocks. Along his side runs a faithful dog, V Which has guided the sheep through many a fog. He loves his master and obeys each call, Would he forsake him? No, not at all. The sheep from the fold will not go astray, As long as their master with them will stay. Should one wonder away out into the cold, The shepherd will bring it back safe to the foldf Each day as the lonely pathways are trod, The good shepherd feels the presence of God, And all around him Nature's beauty Inspires him ever to faithful duty. VERNA HORST, IX A "SP- etga of me gt., They leave their base all dark at night, They haven't even a shining light To guide them through the storm and strife, As they fight to preserve our way of life. They travel on through the heavy dark- ness, To sow their death though it seems so heartless, They level the ruthless machine of war, And shake the fo-rtress to its very core. Destructive eagles in fighter planes Guard heavy bombers o,er rough sky lanes, And when the enemy comes up to fight Their guns spit death for truth and right. These valiant eagles of the sky Will bring us Victory by and by, But we must all work overtime To pay the Nazis for their crime. GEORGE LEE, X B so 'lhe Clftfisfs Artist, what do you paint?

The Rose So pretty, so scented, so gaudy, so gay Is the bright little rose at the break of the day. As the sun rises righer in the bright southern sky, The rose may be heard to give a wee sigh: "My colour is fading, my glamour is going, But my scent is still sweet, so there,s no use in crying." Towards evening 'twas cooler, the rose was revived, But of its bright colour it now was deprived. From a beautiful red to a faded dull white, The rose was transformed by the sun's dazzling light. Though her colours were faded, her petals all torn, Still her beautiful scent by the warm wind was bome.

The Halloweaen Dance was to be an old-fashioned square dance and as none of us knew much about it, we were all taking lessons. Miss Axford f our Mme. Lazongal on the stage, shouted her throat hoarse while we at- tempted to follow the call. The mis- takes were many but the morale was high and if one, by some strange coinci- dence, found oneself in the wrong square, one merely danced around till the right place was found. Let's follow that lad in the plaid shirt and the girl with him. They've started the c'Dip and Dive", and .it's over, under, over-wait a minute, they've wandered off somewhere. All right, they're off again, no, the girl's gone under and the boy is right out of the square. Miss Axford is now trying to put them righ.t but they'll. probably be off again in a few minutes. That is a typical scene, but everyone was happy and! a great many boys and girls joined in and made the square dancing a real success. Mr. Currie joined in the fun one night and seemed to be enjoying himself. It was truly great fun and a time which we will probably talk about for a long while to come. -VIVIAN HOFFER, GRADE XIII 32 ., 0ur Teachers fSung at the weiner roast to the tune of: "My Bonnie Lies Over the Oceannl Mr. Currie is head of our High School, We do love him very much, When homework he dioes not give us, Or make us stay in too much.

Original songs, Grade 13's RHdi0 program, sponsored by 'fiUlCS Tilly TH- blets and guaranteed to CHIC all ail- ments, plus Grade 11's playlets and ustuntsn added merriment to the pro- gram.

The curtain lowered with the singing of the National Anthem, Taps, and a rousing school cheer. -KATHLEEN LORCH, COMMERCIAL The Graduation Dance It was the graduation dance, the last dance of the year, and excitement was reaching a high pitch. The finishing touches had been ,put on the decora- tions, rods for the clothes checkers brought, and all the last-minute details looked after by hard-working commit- tees. The auditorium had been trans- formed into an enchanting ballroom with softly-shaded lights and attractive blue and white decorations. Huge bows adorned the balconies, and streamers hung in 'Criss-cross fashion above our heads. There were intriguing lamp- shades which were made of wood carved to 'form the. letters E. H. S. A large school crest adorned the stage. Shortly after nine o'clock the rousing strains of a familiar orchestra were heard. The music was very good and soon the room was a scene of gay festi- vity. During the evening, one of the dances was dedicated to the boys who are joining the forces: Murray Hein- buch, .Stewart Huehn, Albert Lorch, Ralph Robbins and Donald Snyder. Good luck to them! Dux Hallowe'en Party The night of October 29 was one of fun and frolic for us students of the E, H. S. and a lot of outsiders while we went Western for one night. We decided to hold our annual Hal- lowe'e,n party in the form of ga barn dance, and the gay farmers, farmer- ettes, and dairy maids promenading here and dipping and diving there certainly gave the desired atmosphere, while several outsiders voluntarily supplied the appropriate music and calling out. A grand imitation spider unsuccessfully crawled up a web of thread in one corner and made many shiver, while cats, jack-o-lanterns and witches decorated the surrounding walls. A grand march started the night off, followed by various old-time dances with "ordinary" dancing in betweeng the popular music was supplied by a wurlitzer. Initiation was enjoyed f?J and I'm sure everyone who was there wgll agree that the kids got their dose o it. We felt that our committees had suc- cessfully achieved something different in the line of Hallowe'en parties. -J1-:AN BRUBACHER, XA li.

Out of the rushes, A little snake crawled, The big frog croaked, And the little fish sprawled. I sat on the bank I And pulled out a worm, But while trying to hook it, It started to squirm. I threw in my line And waited a. while, But soon fell asleep- Which was just my style. I woke with a start And pulled in my line, Which swished o'er my head And hung on a pine. I crawled up the bank, And soon reached the tree, But on my shoulder Did light a small bee. I raced for the river But the bee still sat, I jumped and swam And lost my hat. I emerged from the river, And there in my boot Was a cold slippery thing, But I cared not a hoot. I took down my line And pulled out ct sucker, Which had got in my boot, And was good for supper.

Ils sont de tous pays fdans leurs nomsl. Il y a un grand poisson de toutes couleurs et il s,appelle "Churchill" Son ami est un autre poisson qui, est tres vite et que j'appelle uRoosevelt,f parce que, dans son pays, Les Etats-Unis,.tout va le plus vite du monde. Alors, il y a un poisson blanc qui est jaune quand on le met dans lieau froide. C'est pour cette rai- son que je l'appelle "Tojo." Il y en a deux autres qui sont blancs et rouges. Aussi ils ont des queues qui ressemblent 21 des eventails. Ils s'appellent Fritz et Frieda. Liautre est seul parce qu'il est tres tres noir et c'est pour ga que son nom est Haile Selassie. Quand Tojo commence a poursuivre Fritz et Frieda, Churchill et Roosevelt le chassent comme a present dans 'la guerre. Haile Selassie est toujours passif et il ne fait rien du tout. Il est tres interessant de regarder les poissons et leurs actions. Quand on vient'leur donner leur repas ils viennent vite a la surface.

Tous les matins et les soirs il conduisait son auto entre cette ville et un hepital a une autre ville. Il y avait ere beaucoup de voleurs le long de cette route, et le docteur avait peur qu'il ne soit vole. Done il acheta un revolver et il le portait dans sa poche gauche. Un jour, comme il allait a l'h6pital, il remarqua un homme a cete de la route. lI arreta l'auto et l'homme entre dans le siege at cate du docteur. ll semblait au medecin que chaque fois qu'il virait une courbe, lihomme mouvait plus pres de lui. Le docteur le soupconna et il pensa que l,homme avait vole sa montre. Il chercha dans sa poche et sa montre n'etait pas la. ll arreta l'auto encore une fois, tira son revolver et dit a l'homme: HDonne- moi ma montre! Tu m'as vole!" Le voleur suppose tira une montre de sa pocheJet apres l'avoir jetee sur le siege, il ouvrit la porte et courut a travers les champs. Pendant que le docteur mangeait son souper ce soir, sa femme lui dit: 4'John, vous avez fait quelque chose ce matin que vous n'avez jamais fait auparavant. Quand vous etes sorti de la maison, vous avez oublie votre montref' Et le docteur s'evanouit. LEN RUPPEL, XII UNE DESCRIPTION J 'entre encore une fois dans la biblio- theque de mon amie.

It was a complete success with the weather conditions in our favour. There were many specta- tors other than the high school students. Grade XII had the pleasure of discov- ering new athletes who helped them to carry off the shield which they have won for three years in succession. The results were as follows: GIRLS Champion Runner-U p Senior Girls Betty Vice Beverly Shurly Intermediate Girls Ruth Klinck Thelma Ziegler Junior Girls Erma Martin Delorus Paprotka BOYS Senior Boys Ralph Robbins Albert Lorch Intermediate Boys Iohn Arnold Donald Huehn Junior Boys George Lee Edward Hill Juvenile Boys Kenneth Wilken Ronald Rau We -are hoping for a successful field meet again next year. -ESTHER SOEHNER, GRADE XII 42 I 5 mf-ml BADMINTUN A Badminton tournament to a new- comer is quite an exciting affair. And so I found myself entering the gym at my first tournament with a great deal of enthusiasm and quite a few misgiv- ings. After watching the players bat those queer-looking, fluffy balls about, though, I was ready to .try my hand at the game. Ross took me under his wing and for my first game we took on Miss Evans and Ralph, and guess who won? You're wrongg we did-or rather Ross did. After that, Eddie didn't seem to pair me off with kindred souls and I failed to win another game. Ah, well, I sat beside Miss Axford and sympa- thized with her as we watched Slim and Betty battle it out, while over on the far court Ed wore out his vocal cords try- ing to get the right players on at the right time. Mr. Hobden made a dash- ing iigure on the middle courts in his When the en- out we were uwinter white ensem-bleu. tire company was worn called to lunch--And in wartime too! Could be we have several good business heads in the establishment, at any rate, someone made money on that "All right, folks, let us all rise and take out our wallets" line. It was fun, though, and no one seemed to mind. Badminton is a really fine' sport. With me it was a case of love at first game-I shall return to participate in the next tournament with as much en- thusiasm. VIVIAN HOFFER, XIII SKATING AFTER F OUR y Buzz-zz-zz! There goes the bell to end another school day, but why all the hurry? Ah! yes, to-day is the first time we are going to the rink to skate. After being without a rink for Aa year, I wonder if we will all be able to mani- pulate our feet on the ice. Well, let's go down and see how everyone .is mak- ing out. Oh, Oh! It looks as if all have shown up, for look at the crowd. "Round and roundithey go and where they stop. . ." Well, your guess is just as good as mine! Oh! Oh! There go those rough-necks with their game of tag, always getting in the way. Look out! -close your eyes, for here they come. Bang!-Crash! '6Boy, is that ice hard!', Another pile-up, but isn't it fun? Down in the far corner we see our figure skaters practising their familiar tactics. Yes, these are all familiar scenes which might have been observed during our skating periods. We are indeed indebted to the School Board for granting us this privilege and we hope that they will continue to do this in the future. ' -ALBERT LoacH, GRADE XIII THE SKATING PARTY Only one skating party was held this year on account of the short skating season. We had a wonderful time and the rink rang with our laughter. Soft drinks were sold under the Athletic Society's direction, but we still cannot understand the mysterious disappear- ance of one bottle of chocolate milk. The party, however, was a great suc- cess from both the entertainment and financial standpoints. l -JoHN ROWLAND, GRADE XIII E. H. S. HOCKEY MATCHES This winter only two hockey games were played by E. H. S. The first took place on January 11 at the rink. The high school played the "Elmira Up- towners" and defeated them badly, 8-1. One week later they played a Floradale team. I guess we'll have to admit that Floradale had a good team because the outcome of this game was not as good as that of the first one. The score here was 5-3. The line-up was as follows: Goal--Rudowg Defence- Hambly, Millerg Centre-Arnoldg For- wards-O'Krafka, Lorchg Spares- Vines, Weichel, Robbins. --ROLAND BORCHARDT, GRADE XII ' 9 Relchards The Store with a Complete Stock of I GENERAL DRY GOODS AND GROCERIES T We Appreciate Your Patromzge Get - it - at - Reichards' PHONE 307 ELMIRA I 43 sreooien ibouee Bus Terminal and Waiting Room, ELMIRA ONTARIO J.

He liked to spring on passers-by, W e didn't think it fair, On roof-tops, too, he loved to perch, And think of another to scare. He carried on through summer and fall- W e never could wear him down, He jumped, and kicked, and hopped and ran, He was a funny old clown. One day he overdid himself, He ate a pound of paint, His stomach could not stand the shock- He then became a saint. We gave him a splendid funeral, And laid him in the ground, We can't explain how he found the paint, But now he's under a mound. DELORES SNYDER, X A fWith apologies to J. R. Allan?

I looked at him, he looked at me, I really shouldn't stare, But it seemed so very queer to me, His nose just wasnlt there. His hair was long and shaggy, He was very short in size, His hands were just as big as mine And he had the queerest eyes.

VIVIAN HOFFER W'e in Grade XIII would be lost without Viv's happy smile to start us off every morning at nine a.m. Not only does Viv keep up our morale, but she also manages to keep peace when the necessity arises.

She excels in every subject and is at the top of her class. Her pleasing per- sonality and willingness to work will find her an excellent position as a first-class stenographer. Lots of luck to you, Lillian. MARIE ZINGER ln looking back to the Commercial class of '44, Marie is a girl whose name will stand out clearly. Her pleasing way anfd invincible shorthand won her many friends and we are sure she will go far in the business world. The best of luck. Marie. DOROTHY SMITH Dorothy will be missed by everyone when she graduates be- cause of her lovely personality. Her bookkeeping ability is amazing. Whatever you decide to do in the future, we all wish you the best of everything, Dorothy. KATHLEEN LORCH Everyone in Commercial will remember 4'Kay". Her bright smile and pleasing personality have won her many friends. She is a whiz at Shorthand and Typing. Whatever vocation Kay chooses, success is bound to be hers, so as one of '6Our Specials", good luck! MARION PIRIE Marion is a steady. hard-working girl who comes from 'Winter- bourne. Although she is a quiet little girl, her presence would be missed if she were absent. She is the class's best speller. and that together with all her other splendid abilities will take her far. Good luck, Marion! i CFP "L .' ronm NEWS , S I A COMMERCIAL In the year of 19444 ' I. Commercial numbered 24. And so we start with hope in flames To get the commercial students' names. Henry Sippel is a gallant lad, He likes to play but he's not very bad. Evelyn Brubacher is a hard-working girl, And according to Glenn, she's commercial's pearl Bernice, who always comes lirst in our class, Has set an example that none can surpass. Evelyn Shoemaker and Marion Pirie, Come in on the bus from West Montrose cheery. Now Glenn holds supreme at the back of the room And his thund'rous roar sounds like the trumpet of doom Phyllis, we all know, is pleasantly plump, But deep 'neath it all she's a regular trump. Over the aisle in the central back seat, Sit Dennis and Kay looking quiet and neat. And Jean at the top of the Specials Class, Has the name of a hard-working scholarly lass. Marie who seems always to work pretty hard, The class all agree is a regular card. Now Evelyn, from Mildmay, is jolly and gay, She's a studious girl though she does like to play. And Clara beside her is quite full of fun, She sure has a way, and I mean it, by gum! And Lillian, we know, will do wonderful work, Wherever she goes we know she won't shirk. Tom Kares, at the front, is an ,ambitious man, And he helps out his classmates whenever he can. Since Alice and Helen might leave us this year, We wish them good luck in their coming career. Now Dorothy, a whiz in Bookkeeping and Math, Sure sets the pace for the rest of the class. Lloyd and Carl at the back of the class, Have ways of their own with each pretty lass. Helma, we know, will go far in her way, Be the task what it may, it all comes in her day. Thelma we like for she's all sorts of fun, She's the spirit of life all mixed up in one. And Ruth, who is jolly and quite full of fun, Is the life of Commercial and can't be outdone. So come now, ye classmates, and shout loud and true Miss Boland, our teacher, is the best through and through' Now in parting, dear reader, I shall make one comment Yours truly's poor brain is hopelessly spent. GRAHAM LAVERY GRADE XIII - En Francais Grade XIII est une model class, No other dans l'ecole will jamais surpass. Nous sommes quiet as mice and bons as gold, -Of course there are times when teachers will scold. Murray's the lad with the eyes of blue- 'lfoutes les jeunes iilles l'aiment beaucoup. Vivian toujours tries to keep peace Je pense que her work will never cease. Poor Marge has lost so many a coke That it has become now quite a joke. John even jumped out of our fenetre-- Did he get the coke? Well, peut-etrel ttAh", dit Miss Evans, '4Quelle abomination, Ross, c'est terrible--une simple question! Edward, pourquoi etes-vous fatique? A hockey game hier soir, I dare say." A shining example is "notre Albert", In all his dealings he's fair and square. Stewart veut etre un medecin- Knowing him, we are sure he can. History is Elmeras etude favoriteg In settling world problems he can't be beat. Don is quiet comme une souris Il ne fait jamais de bruit. Dorothy has un si turned-up nez We wonder how it got that way. Alice toujours fait ses devoirsg The rest of us get les regards noirs. Ralph has a Ford, or is itta Chev? On this we'll make l'histoire breve Parce que his homework is often not done- L'auto, you see, is alot of fun.

The littlef?l boy who was so afraid of the bigC?J girl with the glint in her eye, that he ran to hide behind his teacher's chair? Those two report cards that had such a time finding their way back to Miss Axf0rd's desk? 'The weiner roast when Marge tried driving Murray's car forward while it was in reverse gear? Dorf's learning to play ulntermezzon? Our outstanding hockey players? Those gruesome Zoology classes and HTek's" famous June Beetle? That horrible week before the dance when the whole class worried about Margels and Dorfls dresses? The strange smells issuing from the lab. every time Gr. XIII got in it? Trying to talk so that Gr.

BROWN TAI LOR ELMIRA ONTARIO GRADE XII ITEMS Ruth Klinck-Although Ruth is leav- ing us next year, we won't forget her co-operation and good sportsmanship which brought honours to Grade XII. We hear Rolly is working in Klinck's watch repair and jewellery storeg per- haps itls seeing so many watches and clocks that makes him come in at 1.15 instead of the set I p.m. on skating days. Let's visit Rita ten years hence. There she is in the little red school house scolding little ,lohnnys and trying to teach little Marys their ABC,s. We wonder if she thinks of us any more. Is the fact that Mary Woznuk has relatives in the Industrial City the only reason why we see her on the bus so much? In athletics, ,lohn Arnold excels. Could it be with his swift feet he has gotten his Bev? Ten years hence: John Arnold, Olympia, Greece. Are the tires on Cliilordis school bus really poor, or could it be that he likes missing English classes? Esther Soehner, whose shorn locks we admire, will go down in E.H.S. history as the best "basket-getteri' on Grade XII's team. Could it be that uKay7' Kalbfleisch laughs because she really thinks that something is funny, or to attract "Lennie's', attention? Are Thelma Uberig and Kersanta Lipnicki still recovering from the shock they received in the Dodge the night of the sleigh ride? Margaret Brubacher puts us all to shame with her knowledge of chemistry. Can it be the extra teaching by Nauga- tuck Chemicals or are we morons? Betty Vice will likely join the W.A.A.F. in ma few years, having had so many experiences in the uaeroplanen. Walter Metzger, having completed his fourth year, has returned to the 4'Square 50" and his egg-grading machine. ' 58 Could it be that Donald Huehn has lost his sense of balance in French class, or that he just wants Miss Evans to tell him to use his feet? Although Helen Voll is one of the quietest members of our class, when examinations roll around, Helen is able to give a very good account of herself. We wonder why Betty Bechthold has so many friends . . . could it be be- cause she always has her homework done? You will find Ruth Mulholland with her ever-faithful friend, Marg. Bru- bacher, trying to figure out geometry questions or Latin sentences. Wlhen Alice is not busy writing very explicit history notes, she is usually having a great joke with Mary or Helen. Twenty years from now when Len owns '6The Vlfhite Grocery? he will probably have a department to clean the glasses of his female customers. Ross never lets any details pass by in a history period. Could it be that he is planning to be a professor of history or a politician? Everyone knows and likes Beverly Shurly. She's the girl in Grade XII who likes to help out with school under- takings whenever help is needed. Her future? If she decides on a career she'll probably be a dress designer.

Grant Pirie-We hear that Grant's only hope lies in the Ag. examination that will include livestock and nothing else. Paul Campbell-We sincerely wish that Paul would engage in some other occupation than pulling people's ties. Don Henrich - We wonder what would happen if Donald, a St. Jacobs pupil, would be late.

WASHING PHONE 2111 ELMIRA ONTARIO GRADE IX B My study in music has brought me to Toronto where I have been for almost one year. To-night while going through some old familiar books I found an E. H. S. '60racle" dated back to 1944. My friend Marie and I pondered over the book for some time and when we came across the good old Grade 9B page I smiled, then grinned, and finally laughed. I think back now of the fun we used to have and also the detentions. At the beginning of that year we had Miss Axford for our form teacher, but in November she had an accident, and an- other teacher, Mr. Carbert, took her place for the time. After about two weeks, a new teacher, Miss Etherington from Toronto, came to substitute. She remained till after Christmas when Miss Axford came back. new teacher, Mr. Rousell, was added to the staff, and we enjoyed his subjects very much. I smile when I think of how I hated those art periods. I liked the teacher, Miss MacVicar, but I just couldn't do Art. We had Miss Harper for Home Econo- mics, and while sewing we had a gossip circle. Our French teacher, Miss Evans, was a very peppy and happy sort of person and was well liked. We had Miss Boland for Penmanship and those were the best periods by far. As I look at those pictures I have at least one good memory of each of my fellow-students. I rem-ember when Don Robbins used to deliver meat for one of the butchers. I believe almost every time Don used the cutter the horse ran away fwith himj. That's Clarence Ste- ver next to Don. Didn't he have a cute smile? I believe just now he is study- ing to be a school-teacher. He said at one time that that was his lifelong am- bition. I used to think I was late in the mornings but he was always behind me. That's Ronnie Rau beside Clarence. I always thought he was rather shy, be- cause sometimes he was so quiet. He used to play goalie for our Bantum Team and was quite good. Ha! Ha! Well, if it isn't Lorne Snyder again! He was studying to be a minister, the last I heard. Hasn't the boy behind him a bright look! I remember he used to play quite a bit of hockey. His name is Floyd Martin. Master Richard Wei- chel looks afraid, doesn't he? He was always so quiet, and you'd never hear much from him. Ward Schwindt is ust ahead. He used to live in North Wool- wich and in the summer he'd always bike to town every day. Here is Eric Readg I think he is following his fa- ther's trade now and he is quite a good painter, I'm sure. That's Bill Otto. He certainly was crazy, you could hardly keep from laughing at him. I believe he is working for his father in the men's store now. The short little fellow be- side him is Robert Soehner. He, like Floyd and Lorne, came from Floradale and played hockey. There's Georgey Porgey the Mathematics genius QPro- fessorj. I donit think he's any relation to Eric but they both are silly. Try to keep George quiet and you have a hand- ful. This is fButcherJ Karl Schmier- mund. He used to deliver meat for Ottmanas butcher shop. I believe he is office manager at the Schneider meat plant now. "Short" or Kenny Wilken follows. He was always turning around to Erma Martin for geography ques- tions. CI think he works for the gov- ernment in foreign countriesj. The girl that's smiling is Erma Martin. She was the 9B all-star basketball player and we wouldn't have had a chance without her. The next one is me, but let's skip that part, eh? The little blonde fellow beside me is Tommy O'Krafka. He could be so quiet fonce in a whilel and sometimes he made more noise than you could expect from one person. Alarm Clock Meyer is be- hind Tommy . He was usually so sleepy in the morning that he took off the first period to sleep. Shirley Lorch, one of our basket-ball players, is next. Then comes Don's sister Gloria.

Girls from all forms volun- teered readily to raise funds for the ,lunior Bed Cross. The line stretched from Blair's to Ullyot's' drug store. In order to watch the money more closely, several lines were started along the side of the first one. In the afternoon an- other row was begun in front of Kares, Cafe by some of the girls. If you went past the mile of pennies that day you were probably minus some of your changebefore you continued on your way. Despite being handicapped by rain and dull weather, the girls turned out cheerfully and through their splen- did efforts a sum of thirty-live dollars and fifty-two cents was realized. The girls really tried hard to make the cam- paign a success and deserve a hearty vote of thanks. BETTE DILLON, BETTY BROWN. THE SALE OF WAR SAVINGS STAMPS The new idea of showing the sale of war stamps by posting it on the bulle- tin-board in the E.H.S. has proved quite successful. A quota is set for each form. Vlfhen that quota has been achieved, the poster shows bombers flying from Canada to the British Isles. This is the picture each class wishes to complete. There are five classes whose bombers have gone across, and who are starting their second flight. The sale of war stamps at present amounts to 360850. -B1-:RNICE KRUPP, COMMERCIAL .i.il.,...-.. . KNITTING The girls of the Royal Canadian Branch of the Junior Bed Cross are do- ing their share by knitting.

KENDALL I have quite often wondered what is happening to the fellows who went to school about the time that I did. I suppose it never occurred to one of us at that time that we would be doing things such as we are now. We have been, or in cases such as mine, will be, privileged to see parts of the world which ordinarily we would never have been in contact with. It is unfortunate that we must see them under the present conditions, but seeing them this way is probably better than not at all. I ima- gine the foremost thought of all the boys in service is of the day to come when we shall beiable to return and begin living in a manner which suits us best. That day will be a most memor- able one and' we hope it shall be soon. To the Service Alumni of Elmira High School wherever they may be, may I wish the best of luck in whatever they may be doing, as well as to any of the "gang" who used to be at High School in those ugood old days". FRED WEISMILLER I realize now, that the years I spent at Elmira High School were the best ones of my life, I just wish I were back there now. Itis the chaps with a bit of education who are going to get the good jobs when this squabble is over, so I hope no student at E. H. S. wastes his time to such an extent as to compromise his future. I might add that England is wonder- ful, and better than I expected-but I havenit seen any snow this winter. I will be glad to see good old Elmira again. Every success for this year's Oracle. DAVID M. ROWLAND One thing I have valued in the course of my navigator's training is the splen- did ground Work which I acquired as a student at Elmira High, and I shall always be thankful for that. an I presume that the current year book will include the hope and prayer for a SPC6dY, victorious conclusion of the war. Perhaps nextsyear's will include a thanksgiving for that viqtgry, Till then we'll endeavour to do our. part in achieving that goal. I wish thestaff and also the friends of the Year Book tinued success. HOWARD L. BRox After receiving your invitation to write a little note to the former students of the school I decided to write to- night. If you wonder why I intend to write to-night I will tell you. To-mor- row night I make my first real raid on enemy territory and God only knows what will happen. I received my first year book while I was training in Alberta and I hope to get my next one over here. The book is really wonderful to read and I' want you, The Year Book staff, to know that all of us in the services appreciate your work. I hope in the near future we will b-e home and that all of us can get together in one big celebration. I will close by wishing all of you. the best of luck in years to come and may the El- mira High School Year Book live for CVCY. BILL Lurz 61 I The Traditional Way of Business .... Emma..

ADAM HACKET1' My wireless training was received at No. 2 Wireless School, Calgary, which happens to be the place of my birth. The course lasted seven months and was very interesting. I had the opportunity of flying over part of the Rockies, where th-ere is grand scenery. We meet many fine interesting chaps from all parts of the Empire and many other countries belonging to the United Nations. Now I am awaiting posting overseas. I have many fond memories of the good old days in Elmira High School, and wish you much success in the years ahead. DON WEICHEL olll' Fashion Show in April ' 'One of the highlights of the year was Grade X's ingenious method of selling war saving stamps to the whole school to send more bombers to Britain-a fashion show with the fair young gen- tlemen of the class as models fSee "Candid Shotsvl. The troupe consisted of ravishing beauties second to none on the contin- ent. David Steele appeared in a chic dressinglgown complete with curlers, hair net and powder puff. Glen Gabcl and Grant Pirie showed what grandma wore while working in her victory gar- den and what our defence workers wear to-day. Tom Galley made a striking entrance riding on a bicycle and wear- ing sports jacket and shorts. Jack Moyer posed as a glamorous bathing beauty fWe've not been able to find out yet what happened to the rest of his outfitll. But Ken Israel and Ken Klinckman really put us all to shame when they modelled school-girl en- sembles. We hear Paul Schmehl has been in great demand since he made such an at- tractive house-keeper in his flattering home economics uniform. What the up-to-date matron should wear on a shopping expedition Land also how she should sit-refer again to "Candid ,Shotsvl was carefully mo- delled by ,lim Miller. We regret that Eaton's and Simpson's milliners were denied the benefit of the showing of millinery salesmanship presented by Clayton Hahn. In his hand a hat was no longer a mere hat-it was a thing' of beauty, a work of art. Then came our charming night club- bers: Don Henrich in a gorgeous pink party dress, Jack Allgeier in a soft yel- low gown with white accessories and accompanied by Shirley Good in tuxedo and bow tieg and George Lee bedecked with rubies, sapphires and emeralds f of chicken ring originl and escorted by two pretty airmen, Verlin Cope and Gladys Kraemer. Bob Roe "finished it off" by appear- ing in a becoming pink flannelette nightgown with cap and hot-water bottle. Ho-hum, and so to bed! The curtain call brought all the ac- tors and actresses on the stage, at which time we all sang "The King" and gave our rousing yell.

SELRITE STORES 5C to 351.00 Variety ELMIRA ONTARIO I Tank To The Farm It was Monday morniiig. I awoke and regarded my watch through half- closed eyes. '4Seven-thirty,', I said sleepily and rolled over on my other side. 'Seven-thirty?7' I repeated, this time with eyes open wide. "I'll be late for work!" So, in less time than it takes to tell, I washed, dressed, ate a very small breakfast, leaped on my bike fwhich I had forgotten to put away the night beforej and headed for the farm. While going, I observed fmuch to my dismayl that it was likely to be a fine day, and consequently, there would be plenty of work. On my arrival my employer informed me that he had borrowed an extra mow- er and we would begin cutting grass that morning. After receiving instruc- tions on the operation of the mower, I mounted it, and started off, constantly repeating, uOil these cups every two rounds, these every fourg this pedal raises the blade, that puts the mower out of gearg watch out for stones',- and so on. For the first few rounds all went well, but, since the mower had been ad- justed for a tall man, I began to grow tired of trying to reach the different levers, and when I arrived at one cor- ner, the horses automatically began to turn. Making a valiant effort to reach the pedal which raises the knife, I missed it, and heard a sickening crack -the dividing-board had broken off. From then on I met with nothing but troubleg the knife became clogged with grass several times and I lost the hook on the end of the whiffle tree. Because of these mi-shaps, I decided I had better stop, and so, putting the mower out of gear, I started for,home. The journey home led through a creek, and .as I was carrying the bro- ken dividing-board in one hand and was trying to keep from falling off the seat with the other, the horses got a little out control. First the one horse lunged into the stream and then the other, their ,Z big hoofs splashing water in my face. When we emerged, the bolt fastening one of the whiflie trees to the double tree had also disappeared! Well, for the rest of trip fwhich was uneventfulfl, I wondered how I was going to explain these disasters to the owner of the mower. But as that is an- other story, I shall not deal with it here. -EDWARD HILL, XI Naugatuck Chemical Classes One morning last November lVIr. Currie read an announcement in assem- bly to the effect that '6Naugatuck Chemicals" here in Elmira was to open, on the following Wednesday, a series of night classes in Chemistry. Some of us, being vitally interested in this subject, met later in the day to talk over the possibilities of this offer. Wednesday night about a half dozen of us met and Went together to the factory. Upon our arrival there we found that one doesn't just go in and sit down. First we had to sign a book telling the time that we entered and later, the time that we left. The class we found was under the supervision of the very able and ami- able Mr. Dickson. The class itself was made up of about eighteen young men from different walks of life in Elmira. Everyone at once became very much interested, for who isn't stirred when he sees two or more substances mixed together, watches a perhaps violent re- action and finds that something entire- ly different has appeared seemingly from nowhere? Later in the year when the rink came into being and there was skating on' Wednesday night it was decided to change the time to Tuesday evenings so that those holding season's tickets could use them to the fullest extent. I .believe that in chemistry there is a future and that these classes are one of the best things that could have been undertaken by Naugatuck Chemicals for the youth of this community. -C.

But sometimes we stu- dents wonder-I After all, if we attend school the minimum time required by law Q6-16 yearsj, which is ten years, we are de- pendent on someone else for support. At school, nowadays, a great many more clothes are required than in Mom's days, and they're more expen- sive tool In our Home Economics De- partment, it was found that the average value of one class, clothing on one winter day was 359.02 and the average cost of their whole wardrobe fincluding cosmeticsj was 35250.44-. School success depends largely on regular attendance. Regular attend- ance depends upon good health, and good food has a great deal to do with good health. Referring again to the estimates arrived at in our Home Eco- nomics Department, to feed the average child until he is educated and able to support himself in satisfactory style, costs the mere sum of 3481800! But education costs nothing! Then there are the books! The mini- mum cost of a Grade IX student's bvpoks is five dollars. But this is only the ini- tial cost! All through the term, re- placements are required. Then there are the rulers fI've lost three new ones alreadyll and pencils fI've lost two and used up threelj and the books, lost or ruined, which have to be replaced. And, of course, every rubber which is bro- ken to bits costs poor old Pop another nickel! And do ,Dad and Mom have to suffer any for this? Well, think of the sleep- less nights, the frayed nerves, and the hardships endured, all that the "light of their eyes" might flourish in health, happiness, and a good education. Just think of the good times they'd have, the clothes and amusements, and trips, and homes, and anything else you can name that they could have, if "educa- tion cost nothing." Well, what do we hope to get out of this anyway? Well, of course, bet- ter pay land who isn't interested in that'?J, better living, greater respect from our fellowmen, greater opportu- nities for service, and better positions for ourselves and the generations which will follow us. Yes, we wonder about these things, and we wonder, too, if ,we're going to measure up as a generation worth the sacrifice which our fathers, and bro- thers and friends are making for us on the far-flung and bloody battlefields of the world, and will we be worth the sufferings endured by the men and wo- men of their generation that we may have a free world to live in. We won- der! -KATHRYN CONNELL, GRADE IX A -lT.l G RA D E IX B CContinued from page 571 nine. I can still remember ,Iune Mor- lock. How could I-forget? I was once told I laughed a lot but I donit think I do as much as J une and Betty Kuhl did. The clever one of the class, Alice Mar- tin, is right here. She certainly was ambitious when it came to studying. That's Delores Paprotka. Her hair was kind of reddish and she always could be good when she tried to. Jean Veitch, from West Montrose, is there in the second row. She was rather shy and I believe almost every boy in the class had a crush on her at one time. The lanky one is Lois Lee. She was quite clever in school and, like Erma Martin, a good artist. Doris Wilken and .lane Shurly over in the corner are next. They both are good figure skaters and basket-ball players. The last but not least of 9B is Betty Kuhl. Sometimes going home from school we would laugh until we'd cry. Betty was a great friend of everyone. ' ' "Well, Marie, that's all for the pic- tures. Let's turn to the class page now. That poem was written by Alice Mar- tin. Isn't it good? There's the story I wrote. I remember the time I started it. It was so long that I began to won- der if I'd ever get through. See 'those limericks, poems, stories, jokes and sketches? Arenit they good? Why look, it's 12.30, we had better go to bed now.

BETTY BROWN, ELEANOR SLIMMON te I-lou Quilfnll Have you done anything to help win the war? Perhaps bought a bond or saved your car?

Or perhaps there's no butter to see you through, So you say, "Well, Iill borrow some from Aunt Sue?" Do you pour waste fat down your kitchen sink?

W lViAUREEN Tuun, XI llnginisked oth It was on a Friday, a nice summer day Late in the morning, on the dry grass I lay, For the mercury was boiling and swimming was fun, But I couldn't go, 'cause my work wasn't done. Noon now had come and the dinner was set, Eating was hot, so my shirt was soon wet. But now I was yinished and was out in the field, Chopping some weeds with a hoe I did wield. Two hours went round but I still was at work, And in all that time not a minute did shirk. Time went on quickly, and swimming was past, But weeds must be hoed right up to the last. At last I was done and a good job at that, So I went to the house and talked to the catg And I mumbled and thought of the fun I had missed, Of the very gay time I had hoped for and wished. But I learned a lesson that all ought to know, To get work done yirst and not to be slow, 'Cause leisure comes after the work is all done, And when it's done well, it's then time for fun.
