The members of the Board of Education are elected representatives of the people.
They meet once a month to carry out their duties: taking general charge over the adminisf
tration and equipment of the schools, setting the course of study carried in the schools,
seeing that there are sufficient funds to run the schools, seeing that this money is spent
wisely, and the appointing of principals and teachers.
The ParentfTeacher Association of Fargo High began its activities in Cctober with
"Back to School Night". Through the Association many varied programs were present-
ed, including musical numbers and an open forum on "juvenile delinquency". At the last
meeting of the year installation of oflicers was held. Through the programs sponsored by
the ParentfTeacher Association a closer relationship between our homes and our school is

Nineteen hundred and fortyffour finds the Student Council celebrating another
successful year as the body which governs and promotes student and school activities.
With the help of a faculty adviser, the Student Council may discuss any problem
which the principal, on behalf of the faculty, may bring before them.
Among its other activities the council sponsered the successful Fargo High School
Wair Bond and Stamp drive of the Fourth War Loan. They also sponsered the dances
after the basketball games.
Seniors are represented on the council with three girls and three boys, juniors with
two girls and two boys, and sophomores with one girl and one boy. The representatives
are elected by the student body.
When laws which govern the student body are violated, the offenders are brought
before the Student Court. This committee tries the cases and imposes sentences. Due
to the cooperation of the students, violation of the laws seldom occur.

athletes of Fargo High School who have excelled in interscholastic and intramural sports.
In doing this the commission strives to encourage participation in sports. Taken into conf
sideration when awarding the letters are the ability of the athlete, his scholarship, general
sportsmanship, and his observance of training rules. The commission interests itself in
all phases of sports and endeavors to promote good sportsmanship and competition in

To foster a friendly spirit among the girls of Fargo High School, to serve others,
and provide entertainment for its members are the ideals of the Sistocratic League. It
accomplishes these ideals through the work of its council, committees, and through the
work of its members. The Sistocratic Council is composed of four officers and the chair'
men of these committees: Service, Friendly, Scholarship, Senior Little Sister, Art, Mem'
bership, Publicity, and Party. All the girls of Fargo High School are automatically enrolled
in honorary membership and are eligible for becoming active members. In its monthly
meetings the council directs the activities of the league.
As is customary, the annual Senior Little Sister party was held in September for the
new sophomores and new girls of Fargo High School. On November 30, IQ43, in honor
of the Moorhead Sistocratic League Council, members of the Fargo group gave an exchange
tea. The purpose of this gathering was to introduce new ideas for both clubs and to foster
intercity friendship. This is an annual affair between the two Sistocratic League Councils.
Entertainment was provided for the members by a series of various parties.
At Christmas the girls entertained at the Bethany Rest Home. Christmas carols
were sung and entertainment and refreshments were provided.
Through the work of the Scholarship Committee, recognition was given to the girls
who made the greatest improvement in their scholastic standing. Arrangements were
made with the Service Committee for the distribution of the school announcements.
Many of the girls assisted at the P. T. A. "Open House Night." .
The above mentioned are just a few of the many wide spread activities of the Sistof
cratic League and Council. Through its work it endeavors to work toward the welfare
of the school girls as a whole and to bring cheer and enjoyment to people outside of school.

In the fall of 1941 our class set sail upon the Sea of Learning in the good ship "Fargo
High." Led by Captain Gordon Rothrock and our adviser Miss Tibert, we hoped to
gain success and fame before our voyage ended. As sophs activities were restricted,
we distinguished ourselves in everything open to us. It was during this year that
war came to the United States and we all increased our determination to prepare 'ourselves
for the future.
In our junior year Charles Tighe became Captain and our adviser, Miss Simpson.
This year many shipmates joined clubs and some became members of honor organizations.
From among our crew came outstanding athletes, musicians, and actors. We joined
journalistic organizations and displayed our talents by putting out a Hne annual. In conf
nection with the war effort the Victory Corps was organized in which we took an active
part. As a Htting close for our junior year we entertained the seniors at the annual junior'
Senior banquet and prom.
As we began the last lap of our trip, Dan Moe sat behind the wheel and our adviser
was Miss Williams. At the end of our threefyear journey we felt worthy of being enterf
tained at a banquet and dance given for us by the junior class. The final entertainment
on board before we docked was our class play, "The Admirable Crichton."
As We look back upon the course which we have followed, we are reminded of our
many good times and of the achievements of our classmates, many of whom have joined
the armed forces of our country. Therefore, wishing the best of luck to our successors,
we take our place among the alumni of Fargo High.

As newcomers to Fargo High School in September, 1942, we tried to lit ourselves to
the role assigned to us, that of "lowly sophsll, and we realized that we were only minor
actors in the drama of high school life. During the first year we were such excellent train'
ing that we felt capable of doing bigger and better things as juniors. Some of our memf
bers began to be noticed and others showed flashes of brilliance which would take them to
future stardom. This first portion of our production was directed by Mr. Ivlyers and
assisted by Donna Evanson.
ln the second act many of our members distinguished themselves in their clubs and
societies. Some of our members were reporters on the Cynosure BifWeekly and later
became members of Quill and Scroll. Others were elected to the Sportsmanship Club
and the National Honor Society. Dramatics and debate also attracted some. Many of
our boys starred in football, basketball, and track. The social climax of the year was
reached at the JuniorfSenior banquet and dance. We also published the IQ44 edition of
the Cynosure Annual, using as a theme the boys who are in the service of our country
and dedicating it to the boys and men from within the walls of Fargo High School who
are now lighting for their country or those who have given up their lives in this war.
Act two was directed by Miss Zarling and Mr. Rice with the aid of our class president,
We are looking forward to next fall when the curtain of act three will rise on our
Hnal year which will be Hlled with adventure. In this year we will be the important
actors in the final scene of the production of 'lHigh School Life."

Do you remember those meekflooking children who were wandering around the
halls at the Hrst of the year? They were Sophomores. Thinking back, can you still see
that poor little soul who was standing by the oilice door, ticket in hand, waiting for the
elevator? He was a Sophomore. There was another little fellow who came dashing into
assembly one bright morning, trotted over to the Senior section and seated himself. When
he was asked his reason for invading the Senior section he produced his reserved seat
ticket. Ah, sweet innocent bliss! The truth of all this may be challenged because of the
progress this class has made, but even they had to learn. As a matter of fact they have
been the youngest, smallest, and least important members of the student bodyvthat at
least is what the juniors and Seniors say. This year, however, they seem to be improv'
ing their standard. Have you heard the "Solid Sophsn, the notorious Sophomore swing
band? Well, you should. They're really on the beam. The Sophomores do very well with
the more classical numbers too. The other and probably most spectacular achievement is
entirely original with this year's class, they have an A Cappella choir. It is directed by
Mr. Sorlien and is giving stiff competition to the older body.

Succeeding the Marcelleans, former honor society of Fargo High school, is the local
chapter of the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools. The purpose of the society
is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to prof
mote leadership, and to develop character in the students of American secondary schools.
To be eligible the student must pass these requirements: he must have spent at least one'
year in the school electing such students, and he must rank in the top third of his class.
Because of the small number eligible for entrance, it is a great honor to be accepted. An'
nually only fifteen per cent of the graduating seniors and five per cent of the junior A class
are nominated by a faculty committee and elected by the entire faculty.

Junior and Senior Classes nominated by the students. The nominees' names are sub'
mitted to the faculty who accept the list or add additional names, if desired. The list is
then voted on by the student body. The qualihcations, as submitted by the students,
are: Obedience to all school rules, selffcontrol, fair play in all curricular and extra-currif
cular activities, punctuality in keeping appointments and meeting financial obligations,
courtesy and consideration for others and respect for their property, honesty, modesty as
winners, courage and courtesy as losers, nonfuse of alibis, accuracy in statements, and a

Kent is proud of its being the oldest literary society in the school. It is unique, too,
in that it requires its members to hand in original literary contributions to the "Kent's
Kan" each semester. The prizefwinning contributions from each class are put into a
semifpuhlication. At the end of the year the two annuals are presented to the most repref
sentative boy and girl of the club. The Kent program has an original skit, a musical num'
ber, book report and discussion, and ends with a using." Each spring the club has a
picnic and baseball game with its 'ifriendlyn rival, the Phosterian society.

The youngest literary club is celebrating its fourth birthday this year, having been
started in 1940. The purpose ofthe society is to promote the interests of students talentf
ed in writing, dramatics, music, and literature. This is accomplished by participating
in the programs in which readings, poems, original skits, book reports, musical quizs, the
PHILOMATHEAN Nnws, and selections by the band are included. From the very Hrst the
society has had its own band organized from among the members, and also its own news'
paper, PHILOMATHEAN NEWS, featuring club gossip. Failure to participate in at least one
program a semester means exclusion from the society.
The new members this year were initiated in an impressive candlelight ceremony
followed by a strictly informal initiation where the candidates were required to sing,
dance, give nursery rhymes, one minute speeches, or even propose to a iiellovovmeiber.
They have plenty of talent as the success of the society plainly shows.

Phosterian is one of the three literary societies in the school, the others being Kent
and Philomathean. The purpose of the six programs given during the year is to encourage
leadership by participation in the planning and staging of these programs. Beside the
regular business meeting of the club the members often give plays, readings, book reports,
and musical numbers. The social part of the yearly program, as in any club, is of great
interest to its members. The main event is the annual picnic given with the Kents in the

One of the very few organizations in Fargo High School open to sophomores, juniors,
and seniors equally is Debate. Having the longest span of operation during the school'
year, it is active from Thanksgiving to Easterg and sometimes longer.
This year the national question was Resolved: that the United States. should join
in reconstructing the League of Nations. Every high school debate team in the country
works on this same questiong thus enabling any two to meet for a discussion.
Fifteen interscholastic debates have been held this season with towns of three states
participatingg Jamestown, Valley City, and Wahpeton in North Dakotag Breckenridge
and Moorhead in Minnesotag Sisseton and Watertown in South Dakota.
A tournament February 9 was held between Breckenridge, Fargo, and Moorhead
with Fargo winning five of its debates and tying with Moorhead for first place and best
speaker. A trifschool debate in which no decisions were given was held April 13, with
Valley City, Jamestown, and Fargo participating. A meet was held April zo with Breckf
enridge, and the members closed the season with a debate at Jamestown.

To foster the ideals laid out by the Little Theater movement, to provide study in
production and in dramatic expression are the main ideas behind the Harlequin society.
Harlequin is the oldest dramatic society, having been organized in 1920. The club welf
comes only those who are seriously interested in developing dramatic talen and in learning
about the theater.
Their programs consist of skits, readings, musical numbers, one act plays, demonstraf
tions on make up, reports on current Broadway productions, great stage and screen per'
sonalities, and various phases in stage production. Their black and gold pin represents
two Harlequin masks hanging on an actor's sword. The new members are initiated in
the fall at a court trial where their cases are heard by a judge and jury. The initiates
then enter the gates of Harlequin and become fullffledged members. Through their prof
grams they endeavor to further dramatic interests.

The aim of the Thespian society, one of the three dramatic clubs in the school, is
to encourage interest in worthy plays, and to gain knowledge of the theater of the past
and present. It was organized in the fall of 1940 and since then has fast gained popular'
ity. Their meetings consist of skits, onefact plays, readings, contests, reports on actors
of the theater, and they sometimes rewrite magazine stories into plays or skits. Each
member appears on a program once a semester. One of their original ideas this year was
a contest to pick motion picture Academy Award winners before their "oscars" were
awarded to them. The society's colors are blue and navy, and it is determined to keep
these colors out in front.

Cu vi parolas Esperanton? Now, if you were a member of the Tripolitan Society,
you would know exactly what that means, for the rudiments of Esperanto are one of many
features of their programs.
Included in their meetings are skits, speeches, quizfprograms, jokes, travel talks,
and songs in French, Spanish, and German.
The participants in the best program of the year are awarded with prizes at the spring
The new members are initiated at the AllfSociety Party by a beautiful candlelight
ceremony at which time the purposes of the club are revealed by the president. This
part is followed by an informal initiation so strenuous that only the strongest survive.
Tripolitan has its own pin of special design in gold and blue, the club colors, with
the name across the middle. It also has a club banner in the same colors.
A party is held at Christmas and a picnic in the spring.

The annual enrollment in November of Fargo High School students in the American
Red Cross was the Hrst task undertaken this year. A council was then organized consist'
ing of one member from each fourth hour home room. This council is known as the junior
Red Cross club and is responsible for the planning and carrying out of the Junior Red
Cross activities in Fargo High School.
During the school year two hundred dollars from voluntary student contributions
has been sent to the National Children's Fund, which is used for the relief of children in
warftorn countries. Council members have turned in one hundred hours aiding nurses
at the Fargo Health Center. They distributed posters to the downtown area during the
War Fund Drive of the Red Cross, and they prepared material for the block workers in
the city. They also prepared a junior Red Cross window display. They have brought
in large amounts of waste paper and placed boxes on each floor of the school building for
waste paper from students. This large list of projects shows that Fargo High school is
not letting down in its war effort. All the students are soundly backing the junior Red

The Art Club again became active last year after a period of idleness for several
years. Under the direction of Mr. Whedon the monthly meetings are spent drawing.
The new members this year were initiated during the All Society Party by an impressive
candlelight ceremony. Here the byflaws of the society were explained and the initiates
signed pledge cards promising to abide by these laws. They received ribbons in the club
colors, blue and yellow, to wear at the following dance, indicating their membership in
that particular club. Their other party this winter was a potluck party at Christmas
with a program including piano selections and singing.

noticed how clean and shinny the trophies in the front hall are? Of course you have!
All your thanks go to the members of this club who take it upon themselves to polish
them each year. The Euthenics members have made articles of clothing and also pies
and jams which have won them honors at the A. C. May Festival. To complete each
year of fun the girls have a traditional spring picnic.

Poof! Through the smoke came a voice, "Wrong again", but the "diefhards" of this
club, like true scientists, try and try again. This is a typical meeting of the Science Club.
The purpose of the Club is to promote scientific research among students who are ref
quired to have one year of natural science. The monthly meetings give members a chance
for experiments on their own, field trips, moving pictures, special reports and discussions
among other things.
Organized twenty-four years ago, in 1920, the club has risen to Hrst place in North
Dakotag and is now one of 2,600 affiliated with the American Institute of Science and
Engineering Clubs. This national organization, sponsored by the Pennsylvania State
College, sends out a monthly magazine, Scirmcn GBSERVER, and various other articles of
information for their discussions.

Originally the Radio Club, this society in January 1939 was changed to include all
hobbies. The club, formerly interested in model airplanes, photography, and radio,
now confines itself largely to radio and stamps. At their meetings, the boys practice
sending and receiving code, discuss stamps, different radio apparatus, and other interest'
ing problems and facts pertaining to radio and stamps. There are two licensed operators
in the group, Bob Manson and Philip Hess. The school has a iso watt short wave sta-
tion, WQGTB, located in the ofiice adjacent to the physics laboratory, however, it is not
permitted to operate during the war.
The new members this year were inducted into the society by an informal initiation.
They did everything from receiving shocks to eating garlic, this latter produced particular'
ly pleasant effects at the dance following the initiation.

The Boys' Athletic Club was organized in 1941 to develop in its members a spirit of
fair play plus giving the boys a free period with the gym equipment or the swimming pool,
as the case may be.
The boys are given different problems in gymnastics or swimming, then are turned
loose in the gym or pool to strain a few muscles or swallow a little water in Hguring them
There are some very accomplished athletes among the members who can show the
rest of them a few tricks on the parallel bars or the diving board, and who then let the rest
break their necks attempting to imitate them. However, the boys do learn, and really
have a good time as shown by the membership.

There's nothing lazy about these eager beavers who contribute most of their extra
curricular time to the editing of the Cynosure. With the careful advisement of Miss
Donehovver the staff has been more than successful this year, putting out some of our Hn'
Editor i'Hoop" has been on her toes along with Margie, associate editor, and the
rest of the capable staff. Bob's cartoons, although he doesn't mention it himself, appear
in every issue adding humor and gaiety to the Cynosure.
Mr. Still is not to be forgotten, who never places himself in the limelightg but is one
of the most essential persons for production of the paper. He is found in the print shop
where he excepts last minute copy goodfnaturedly and without complaint.
Many hours of work have been put in by the feature, sports, desk, and headline edif
tors, and the photographer, all of whom did a grand job deserving much credit.

, Silent but active partners are the members of the business staff for the Cynosure.
Under the direction of their adviser, Miss Fowler, this allffeminine staff has accomplish'
ed everything necessary for the success of the paper.
The business staff is divided into three departments each managed by a member of
the student body. Business, headed by Dorothy Bergeson takes care of all money matters
including subscriptions, bills, and keeping the books. Ruth Miller has charge of advertisf
ing with some seventeen ad soliciters this year. As well as distributing the papers and
mailing to outfofftown subscribers, the circulation staff, headed by Mary Harrington and
assisted by Sally Ornes, take charge of the campaign in the fall for new subscribers.
With headquarters in the laundry or "dugout" the members of these groups work
hard enjoying themselves at the same time. They learn much about handling the business
involved in the production of a good paper. Often too little is said of the business staff,
its members, and the important work they do for the paper.

The orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Sorlien has made several splendid appearf
ances this year. As well as contributing many numbers before and between acts of our
all-school plays, they have made appearances at the Emerson Smith School and the -Iefferf
son School. They have also played in one of Fargo Hi5h's assemblies.
During practices this year the group has striven for all things essential to good
musicianship which include proper balance, intonation of instruments, and baton discipline.
Some of the accomplishments of the orchestra are, i'Pique Dame Overture" by Von
Suge, "Aragonaise" from "Carmen" by Bizet, "Oriental" from "Folk Dance Suite" by
Guenther, and "l'vialoquena" by Lecuona.
Officers are elected each semester and the music is distributed and collected by

Cur largest musical organization--and perhaps the most active'-his the band with a
record number of seventyfhve members this year. Although the usual marching was
omitted, no splendor is lacking to this group under the direction of Mr. L. C. Sorlien.
This year they made appearances at our basketball and football games and on M2lfCh 1.4,
presented several numbers at our Grand Concert. Among those played were, "New
Moon Cverturev by Sigmund Romberg, "Deep South Rhapsody" by Lilyia and Isaac,
and "Three Blind Mice at the Floor Show" by Frangkiser. Programs were also given at
the Emerson Smith School and the Roosevelt School.
The Pep Band, a division ofthe Concert Band, is directed by Dan Moe. This group
plays for all our pep assemblies giving forth much lively music.
Another group, the second band, is made up of twentyftvvo members, some of whom
became members of the Concert Band at the end of the first semester.
A number of the students in the band make up smaller groups which have made
appearances in assemblies and at various other programs.

A Cappella is made up of selected voices from the
Boys' and Girls' glee clubs. Under the careful guidance
of Mr. Sorlien they have practiced to achieve quality,
blend, correct interpretation, and ability to sightfread,
all requiring hours of diligent practice for the choir.
As well as striving for finer music they have made
many public appearances. Before Christmas they
entertained for a special P. T. A. program at the Emerson
Smith School. At the Gardner Hotel they sang for the
Rotary Club. They also sang at the A. S. T. P. unit
program at N. D. A. C. along with other musical groups
of the school.
Two radio programs are on the credit list of the
choir both heard by transcription. Once for the Public
Schools Program and again on the Meet Your Neighbor
Much hard practice on the part of all members was
needed during the Christmas season when the Music
department presented a Christmas assembly. Nor was
the traditional caroling in the halls omitted, placing addf
ed emphasis on that Holy Season.

Based on the author's personal experiences while traveling near London, the first
all school play 'iShe Stoops To Conquer", was presented by Miss West early in December.
The time is the eighteenth century and the scene is the country home of Squire Hardf
castle. The Squire had planned to marry his daughter to the son of a friend, hut this
was easier planned than done. The plot evolves around this idea and is further complif
cated hy a second romance in the same house.
The line acting on the part of the cast made the humorous incidents constantly
entertaining, and the exciting plot kept the audience in suspense to the final curtain.

High School Midgets came out on top of a 27 to o score against
the Sacred Heart Deacons.
The following week Fergus Falls came to Fargo to meet
the Midgets. They played well, but not well enough. for
they too were beateng the score this time was 21 to 14.
On October 1 Fargo crossed the Red to meet the traditional
foe, the Moorhead Spuds, in a game that will be long remember'
ed. Especially was the finish exciting, for, with but a few
seconds left to play and the Midgets on the short end of the
score, Rothrock stole the ball from a Moorhead player and
sped Fargo High to. an IS to 18 tie by virtue of a sensational

With only four lettermen returning, the success of the IQ4:7,'44 basketball
season seemed rather dubious. However, after fifteen years of coachingfhve of
them seeing Fargo win the state tournament-"Hank" Rice didn't worry too
much about the boys. All in all the season was very successful, despite the
doubts of the fans, the Midgets lost only three games and won twentyfone.
At Bismarck two AllfTournament teams were chosen. Fargo High School's
captain, Gordon Rothrock, was selected captain of the hrst AllfTournament
team. Bruce Larson, Fargo forward, was also chosen on the Hrst team.

Fargo's hockey team, coached by Mr. Mickelson, did not have as completely a success'
ful season as the basketball and football teams, due mainly to injuries and illness. This
year Fargo played seven games, including the tournament at Thief River Falls. At the
tournament Fargo was first scheduled against the Crookston Cathedral team. This team
had defeated Fargo twice before and was rated as one of the stronger teams while Fargo
was a weaker one. The game was a close one with a ten minute overtime called. It was
during this overtime that Crookston made the other two goals.

Fargo High began giving out swimming letters just last year. This year there were
seven letters awarded. The first meet, which Fargo lost, was with the Air Corp men of
the Moorhead State Teachers College. Next the tankmen swam against the Northwest
School of Agriculture at Crookston and won. Finally Fargo held a telegraphic meet with
Casper, Wyoming, on April 6. This type of meet enables teams to swim in competition
without the expense of a long trip. Both boys' and girls' teams entered this event. Fargo
captured the meet by totaling 65 points to Casper's 49.
Spring in IQ43 brought the track season around once more. Fargo started the season
with only two lettermen. On May first in the first meet, a dual meet with Moorhead,
Fargo won 72 to 45. May eighth saw the meet at Fergus Falls, which Detroit Lakes won
with Fargo coming second. The District meet was held on May Efteenth at Fargo.
Fargo won this meet with 95 points. Fort Yates won the State meet at Bismarck, May

The Pep Club is composed of the girls of Fargo High School. This year there are
about no members, advised by Miss Rowlands. The Pep Club Council is appointed by
the officers of the club and is composed of three seniors, three juniors, and three sophomores.
It is their duty to organize committees for publicity, for programs, to sell candy at games,
and to have pep assemblies. This council was organized last year. Its object is mainly
to keep cliques from forming in and about the school.
Each year the Pep Club gives one, very special, pep assembly. This year it was in
the form of a skit, dramatizing the action of live girls at a basketball game. After the
game the girls sang an original song to the Midgets.
At the tournament in Bismarck a grand pep rally was held on Friday morning.
There, these girls were asked to give their little skit again, Audrey Remme also played
and sang a few numbers.

After the banquet a dance was held in the gym, which was open to any high school
student. Decorations consisted of huge pictures of "Zoot men". The football awards
were given during the dance instead of at the banquet. Twenty letters were to have been
given out, but the war has made these rather diflicult to obtaing therefore certificates were
given alone with the promise that letters would come later. The presentation of the gold
footballs was postponed until a later date.

The biting wind is past
An icy stillness reigns
Where stinging snow fell fast
Pelting the window panes.
Dirt ingrained like sin
Crusts the snowy knoll
And where the crust is thin
It shows a sinless soul.
One day I got decked out for spring,
New hat, new gloves and everything
And as I stepped into the street,
A little snow flake my face did greet.
But I would not give up as yet,
Cuz with a friend I'd made a bet
She said spring-time had not come round
No one else in such a garb, no one else would be
But I on the contrary claimed spring had come
And old man winter was gone, the bum!
Then I began to fuss 'n frett-
Guess my feet got a little wet.
And snow flakes came with dreadful furry.
I ran home in a quick fast hurry-
To do-that's right-you've guessed the thing-
I ran home to wait for spring!
WAR AND YOUTH
Perhaps the most disastrous aspect of war is its
effect upon the station of the world's youth. For
though war is caused by the blunders of one
generation, it is fought by the members of the
following generation. The people who held the
reins of national policy when the storms of war
were brewing are now too old to suffer the supreme
One hundred three
consequences. They are now too old to fly the
planes, to fire the guns, and to man the ships that
are righting their wrongs by might. These jobs
naturally fall to their children. These children do
not have the privilege of entering society under
ordinary circumstances. When they approach the
age at which they would usually pick their life's
work, they find that war conditions prohibit the
planning of one's future. Today's youth, and
any day's youth who are such in warftime, cannot
choose the course of their immediate future. They
cannot call their life their own, at least not until
the existing war is over. That is a tragedy. It is
a dangerous condition. The young person Ends
himself with the next few years of his life cut out
for him in the service of his country. He knows
that he must do as he is told, so he ceases to worry
about what he wants to make of his life. He may
lapse into a condition where he doesn't care much
about himself or his future. All he knows is that
he wants to enjoy himself before entering Army
routine. He becomes a little lawless and joins a
general trend which has been termed "juvenile
Some people may say that youth does have a
future. They claim that the world after this war
will be a wonder land of new inventions and a
dream land to live in. Perhaps so. But I had a
friend with whom I played when I was small.
He was older than I was, so joined the Armed
forces about a year ago. This week he was listed
as killed in action in Italy. He will get none of the
glorious future after the war. Others may want
to become surgeons, artists, etc. How do they
know but what they might come out of the war
with a hand shot off? No, youth does not have a
very rosy future in war time. They do have the
one airy dream that may be the postwar world
will be a fine place in which to live, if they do live.
The sad part is still that this generation's needs
be sacrificed for the mistakes of the last.
Maybe in some future form of civilization we
will develop a system under which the old men,
and those whose fault the war really is, will ac'
tually fight it. That should be better than killing
the cream of our manhood once every twenty

WEATHER I L " I ' " THESE I LIKE
The dictionary says weather is the combined These I like: fi A ,
conditions of the atmosphere, the encyclopedia The Smell of rain on a dusty Street,
gives a very scientihc explanation of the elements,
but I know differently. I really know what causes
weather, having just returned in my rocket ship
from my explorations of the universe. Therefore
I will impart for the benefit of posterity my knowlf
edge of the weather. In the following journal I
report my Endings.
LEFERDGEWORTH AND His FRIENDSN
Ferdgeworth is a dwarf who lives with his
friends up on the top of the sky. Ferdgeworth
and his friends all have a special duty to perform.
For instance Ferdgeworth, really a fine fellow,
sometimes forgets to light the big lamp, then the
sun doesn't shine and all is dark until Fergeworth
wakes up, and all of a sudden the sun breaks through.
Of course there's Wasooh, poor fellow, he has a
horrible case of hay fever and always sneezes,
especially during March, when the quackfgrass
grows. This is the reason for windy March.
Besides Fergeworth and Wasooh there is Omelet
and the nameless little dwarf who has a special
press through which he passes big sheets of ice,
cutting every tiny piece into a different shape and
dropping them through the cracks in the blue ceilf
ing, these are the snowflakes. Now Omelet has a
terrible passiong he loves to fry eggs. But Omelet
is very poor and lives in a house with cracked
floors and a smoky stove. Every time he frys eggs
the smoke pours through the cracks in the floors,
causing smoke and fog. The last of these dwarfs is
Weepy, a sad little begger, always crying. His
tears run down in big sheets, known to us as rain.
Now, each in their own place these dwarfs and
their helpers are very fine. But every once in a
while they all get together and have a big party.
Then it snows, sleets, the wind blows, the sun is
out, and the earth is a dismal place until they all
go back to the earth. l
Having imparted my findings, my pen is stilled
until I retum from my next trip into the stratosf
phere, having imparted to the world my vast
knowledge of the weather.
One hundred five
The uncertain patter of a puppy's feet,
The feel of the west wind in my hair,
The friendly creak of some friendly old stair,
The ringing of church bells all together,
A wisp of blue smoke like a wind blown feather,
The feel of contentment deep within me,
The buzzing briskness of the busy bee,
The thin blades of grass appearing in spring,
And the birds, when they begin so blithely to sing I
These, not only I like, but many more,
If written all down, they'd be counted by score.
