Left to right:
On Friday and Saturday nights, Dec.
3 and 41, 1943, the Elmira High School
held their Annual Commencement.
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-
"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'

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
-An interesting feature on Saturday
night was the valedictory address by
Pte. Arthur Weichel.

It had seemed like an ordinary
morning, and, except for a bit of a
headache and a sore throat, I felt fine.
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-
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.

A Faithful Pal
I Prize Story!
It was a warm, bright, sunny day. I
watched them cross the street at the
corner of Carleton and Yonge. 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
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
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

It was harvest time. 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

"I wonder if they'll give me a nice
funeral. . . 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
around again, Willie. . . I'm pulling as
hard as I can. . . ah! they're respond-

I sat up, bumping my head on the

on a drastic angle at that, and thinking

just off a culvert, isn't such a bad place

The Unfortunate Rescue
Two men were walking on a high
bluff overlooking the valley of a river.
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! There's a dog lying on one
of the rails!" I

binoculars to his eyes and scanned the

lt is indeed an honour to be chosen
as valedictorian of the class of 1943 and
to be able to express to you on our be-
half the feeling of profound sorrow that
we all feel as we bid good-bye to our
beloved school. 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

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

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
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-

-Distance and occupations now separ-
ate the graduating students from each

at University and now have good posi-

first year at University, some have re-

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
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-

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
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."

,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."

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.

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-
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."
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

1 Senior Prize Poeml
"W ill you, won't you, will you, won,t
Will you join the dance?"
As I was walking through the wood,
Pray, what should catch my glance,
But a group of ethereal fair folk
' ' ' J'
"A-joining in a dance.
A dance so full of elfish grace
I could scarce suppress a sigh,
As' those lovely tiny pixies came
A-twinkling before me and by.
Before and by me Titania flashed,
Their Queen so gaily crowned,
And her mischievous King Oberon '
Caught and whirled her 'round.
'Round and 'round the wee folk spun,
Their ra-iment bright and clear-
Gliding, whirling, weaving, circling,
A-flitting far . . . now near.
Now far, now near they played and
Too soon they faded away, A
And left me standing, wondering
If ftwas real or fantasy.

The Tale of cz pitafe
On a southern island in the tropical seas,
A palm tree waves in the soft, cool
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
For a place to bury his gold in the sand g
Under my branches was the chosen
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."

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.

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
As they fight to preserve our way of life.
They travel on through the heavy dark-
To sow their death though it seems so
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
And when the enemy comes up to fight
Their guns spit death for truth and
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.

Artist, what do you paint?
I paint the blues of crystal ponds,
The violet heather, bracken fronds,
I paint the summers' azure sky,
The fleecy clouds that in it lie.
Artist, what do you paint?
I paint a scene of beauty rare,
Of whispering trees and flowers fair,
Of reed-fringed pools and gurgling
And pictures of the pale moonbeams.
Artist, what do you paint?
I paint the merry girls and boys,
The babies playing with their toys,
And pictures of a happy throng,
Singing as they go along.
Artist, what do you paint?
My brush portrays a battlefield,
Brave men whose very lives they yield
That we a better. world may know,
Hate turned to love, to friends our foe.

Renders a melody of purest strains,

Kindles in F reedom,s sons a burning zeal,

The warmth of which the whole wide world may feel.

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.

0ur Square Dance
Boys and girls whirling about in a
mad jamboree of gay colours, smiling
faces, and strange mistakes-that's the
picture of our practices for square
dances. 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

We do love him very much,
When homework he dioes not give us,
Or make us stay in too much.

It all sounds like bunk-um to us.
Miss Axford is our form teacher,
We work with her hand in hand,
Vlfhen finished markingiour papers,
She tells usrhow we stand.
Although we haven't had Mr. Hobden,
We hear he is quite a good friend,
He welcomes all faithful pupils,
And works with them unto the end.
Miss Boland and happy Miss Evans,
Are friends to us coming to school,
But when we are there awhile,
They may put us over the stool.
Miss Harper is our Home Ee. teacher,
Who surely will teach us to stitch,
And it will serve a good purpose,
When we are older and hitched.

If we children act too smart.

The Wiener Roast
The scene ,was set at Hoelscher's gra-
vel pit. Around a bright fire sat the
characters. The occasion was the annual
High School weiner roast.
The students assembled at the school
and then proceeded to the hollow where
they -were entertained by each f0I'If1 in
turn. 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. Then came the feature attrac-
tion of the evening. Delicious hot dogs
caused everyone to smile with content-
ment. The curtain lowered with the
singing of the National Anthem, Taps,
and a rousing school cheer.

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
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
We felt that our committees had suc-
cessfully achieved something different
in the line of Hallowe'en parties.

Down by the river side,
Sitting on a log,
I spied a little fish
And a big fat frog.
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.

NQuelle abominationln ces mots bien pointus
Chaque jour dans nos classes francaises, leur son est aigu..
Nous n'avons point travailleg mademoiselle dit fort,
-Qu7est+ce que vous avez fait hier soir? joue a un sport?
Vous etes alles patiner? laissant vos devoirs?
Gil en ville etes-vous alles? vos amis revoir?
D'exercices ne faites jamais! pas de mots ecrits,
S'ils'ne sont pas faits demain, vous serez punis!
' Quelle abomination!
Donc dans nos etudes frangaises, presque tous les jours,
Notre bonheur est perdu par ces deux mots courts.
Mais apres, on pense un peug quand on reflechit,
On regrette lecons malfaites, francais y compris.

MES POISSONS ,
Chez moi, j'ai six poissons. 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

Our annual High School Field Meet
was held on October Ist, 1943, in the
afternoon, and some events took place
the following week. 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:
Champion Runner-U p
Betty Vice Beverly Shurly
Ruth Klinck Thelma Ziegler
Erma Martin Delorus Paprotka
Ralph Robbins Albert Lorch
Iohn Arnold Donald Huehn
George Lee Edward Hill
Kenneth Wilken Ronald Rau

meet again next year.

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

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

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

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.

To the tale I have to tell.
It's not a very big place,
But I know it's on the map,
The railroad tracks' run through it
To help jill up the gap.
It has a famous bus-line,
'Un which some kiddies go,
To get a little knowledge,
And learn to cook and sew.
Each morning bright and early,
To Hills' the bus doth spin,
To pick up all the victims,
And get them all within.
The first we see arriving
A lassie tall and slim,
We know it's .leanie F oster--
Who else has such a grin?
And there are Ed and Dorothy,
Dorothy-did I say?
No, but patience, just a second,-
She says shels on the way.
Sputter! sputter! down the street,
Until at Hains, we stop,
Is Irene almost ready?
That boo-k she'll have to drop.
Roes, is next, I hear them say,
And Bob is on the run,
Coat a-flying, hair amuss,
And books that weigh a ton.
Oh yes, there still is Helen Voll!
Now, she is ne ver late,
She's always ready on the dot,
With pencil, book and slate.
Look in now at Wallenstein,
Our Lloyd is still asleep,
Five minutes is a lot of time
From out of bed to creep.
Giggle! giggle! gosh! and gee!
Have you got your history done?
And of they go, those Linwood kids, -

The Cock O' the North was a queer old
That liked to eat old bones,
He had a ravenous appetite,
And he relished a plate of scones.
He liked to spring on passers-by,

On roof-tops, too, he loved to perch,
And think of another to scare.
He carried on through summer and
W e never could wear him down,
He jumped, and kicked, and hopped and
He was a funny old clown.

He ate a pound of paint,

He then became a saint.
We gave him a splendid funeral,
And laid him in the ground,

fWith apologies to J. R. Allan?
One day as I walked down the street,
I met the queerest sight,
A dog with eyes as black as coal-
T his didn't seem quite right.
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.
And then as I was watching him,
I heard the fiercest scream-
I woke up with a start to find
All this had been a dream.

Ralph is one of the tallest and most lively members of Cratle
XIII. In addition to playing an important role at Commencement,
Ralph has taken an active part in athletics. We all hope Ralph
will jump to success just as he frequently hurdled the chairs in
the classroom to limber up his sore muscles.
Une of the jovial members of our class. Edward. may be
found where nonsense is concerned. Besides being Secretary-
Treasurer of the Athletic Society. he spends a great deal of time
trapping muskrats. Ed. leaves us this year and with him go our
best wishes for the success we feel he will achieve.
Being one of our quiet lads does not hinder Ross from being
a good sportsman. He is active in hockey, baseball. badminton.
and bowling. His perseverance and affability have won the esteem
of his classmates and will help him to go far in whatever career
he may choose.
Stewart's happy smile and cheerful nature have been a wel-
come addition to Grade XIII. His keen sense of sportsmanship
and his class spirit have shown themselves in both basketball and
softball. Stewart leaves us to serve in the Royal Canadian Navy.
and we wish him "bon voyage".
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. Viv is intending to enter McMaster next
year and the best wishes of Grade XIII go with her.

Lillian Paine, one of our "Specials,,, who is seldom heard in
the room. will not be forgotten by any one of us. 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.
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 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.
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",
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!

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.
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?

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
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. She, like me,
came tagging along at about five to

OUR MILE-OF-PENNIES CAMPAIGN
One Saturday last fall some of the
girls of the school, under the direction
of Miss Boland, held a mile-of-pennies
campaign. 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

THE SALE OF WAR
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

T0 OUR YOUTH . . .
Your Town Fathers together with the Elmira Community Service
Club and the Board of Trade are making every efort to provide you
with wholesome amusement and clean entertainment. What has been
accomplished so- far apparently is greatly appreciated by the majority
of our boys and girls. 'Naturally the more you enjoy and properly
use the facilities provided, the greater the encouragement for those
who have willingly and unstintingly given of their time and money
to keep on adding further outlets for your pleasure and enjoyment.
The Town Council as well as all local organizations are most keenly
interested in seeing that you Boys and Girls grow up with sound
healthy bodies and clean minds. We appeal to you for your whole-
hearted co-operation and vigorous support to make Elmira a better
place to live in so that other municipalities our size will be envious
of the NGOOD NAME OF ELMIRA".

l D Service - Alumni
I often think of the High Schoolimd
more often of you people in it. It is, in
fact, a special kind -of extra fine day-
dreaming that I indulge in, and you can
bet it's going to take at least another
war to budge me out of Elmira if I
ever get back. E. W. 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".
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
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

we'll endeavour to do our. part in
achieving that goal. I wish thestaff and

I Tank To The Farm
It was Monday morniiig. I awoke
and regarded my watch through half-
'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
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
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.

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
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.

So Education Costs Nothing?

some people. But sometimes we stu-

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

ruined, which have to be replaced. And,
of course, every rubber which is bro-

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-

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
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
Of the very gay time I had hoped for and
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.
