I EDITORIAL I V gl VERY year we work to make our Farmington Student better. 'Tofdok this
we need all the school spirit thatpupils can give. For a school paper
reflects the success of the school, which is brought about by school spirit.
' Often I have wondered just what this phrase means. In all that I have
read, I have never found anything which characterizes true school spirit 'better than
these lines from Shakespeare: g .
"To thine own self be trueg
And it must follow, as the night the day,
'Thou canst not then be false to any manf,
School spirit is loyalty to your school and to yourselfg it is pride in your
work, it is willingness to see the good, ability to see the good, in your school, it is
the attempt to raise the standard of your school. It is the best that you can give in
return for what has been done for you. Often it is not only those who hold the
highest offices or play on the athletic teams, or obtain the highest rank, who have
true school spirit, for those who go their owntquiet way, and offer their best, may
possess this ideal, for he who does not do his best, and his very best-fails.
As we go on in life, this quality ceases to become "school" spirit but develops
into something infinitely better and greater--citizenship and true Americanism.
There is always room in our school for school spirit, and yet the pupils of old
Farmington High, which we Seniors sadly leave this year, possess it in no small
In behalf of our school we wish to thank Miss Baker for her help, which has
been indispensable in preparing this paper, and Mr. Gregory, who has evinced so
great an interest in all school affairs. To the public we offer our sincere thanks
for their support during the year. I

believe that this will be one of the best, if not the best small high school
buildings in New England. This sum of money represents only the first

We may have one of the best buildings. Will we have one of the best schools?
This building and the sacrifice of the community stand as a challenge to every student
of Farmington High School. It is largely up to you. To a considerable extent it is
a matter of two things-attitude and spirit. These find their expression not only in
the evidences of your "pep" but in your point of view toward your teachers and
A school with a good spirit is an institution where the student places the welfare
of the group before personal benefit and consideration. He thinks first of the group
then of self. He tempers his acts and conduct by a careful analysis of public criticism
and approval. He "stands by", going down in defeat or rising on the crest of victory
with the varying fortunes of his school. He is a generous winner, a sportsmanlike
loser. Defeat spurs him to renewed effort, victory helps him appreciate the fine
qualities of those whom he struggled against as well as the loyalty of those who fought
by his side.
Failure and success is largely a matter of your attitude. A school with a right
attitude can't fail, for every reverse serves as an incentive, not as a check, to higher
and better goals. A school with a spirit is a school with a reputation. If a high
school dares to claim success, it must develop the right spirit and attitude on the
part of its students. These things will not come as a result of book learning or
classroom lectures. Teachers may be able to help by timely advice and suggestion,
but still the major part of the task is in your hands.
Yes, we are going to have a fine building. Will YOU help make a fine school
with a splendid spirit which will merit the approval and respect of our neighboring

OUR LITERARY SECTION
OUR GREATEST GLORY
ei ARLY in the afternoon the sun dimmed and soon was seen no more.
S1 Gradually the wind rose: first, it whined and moaned softly in the pines,
then, it shrieked, its shrill cries growing louder every moment as it swept
9 ' ' through the forest behind our camp.
Black clouds piled up from the horizon to the zenith, their blackness emphasized
by a vivid streak of light at the edges. Branches creaked and groaned as they tossed
in the wind. Darker and darker grew the day. Weird sounds began to come from
the huge chimney in the living room, as they always did when the winds rose high.
Secure in our sturdy cabin, we awaited the approaching storm, all of us awed and
some not a little frightened, by the disturbance of the elements.
Suddenly, like a great flaming sword swung with a firm, relentless arm, a
blinding flash of lightning rent the blackness followed by a deafening peal of thunder.
Then the rain poured down seeming to fall in sheets. In a brief instant of light we
caught a glimpse of the forest bending before the storm, the brook filled to over-
flowing, rushing headlong down the slope, then all was dark again.
In the distance, above the roar of the' storm, we could hear the dull, heavy thud
of great trees as they fell to the ground, or the crackling sound made when lightning
strikes. Flash followed flash, the thunder crashed, rolled away and crashed again.
Another exceptionally brilliant flare showed us again, the towering forest drenched
with rain, and filled with grotesque shapes of storm-tossed branches.
For more than an hour the elements battled fiercely, but at last seemed to tire
themselves. As suddenly as it had begun, the rain ceased. The clouds parted and
swiftly drifted away, the sun burst forth in a flood of ,golden light. A rainbow
appeared glowing and fading in the east, a vast ark of irridescent color melting into
the blue background.
Raindrops glittered like countless diamonds as they fell from the leaves, the
air was permeated with the fresh, fragrant odor of damp earth. Tiny rivulets
trickled down the hills, birds sang their evening hymns, over everything was a silvery-
green haze made by the fading sunlight on the wet foliage. In a blaze of red and
gold the sun sank to rest. Long after the bright clouds lingered, giving promise of a
Then, walking into the woods a short distance I found a great oak uprooted, once
it had been a gigantic tree-tall and sturdy-bearing the marks of great age, and
looking as though it had defied many a storm in its day. As I looked at this fallen
monarch, a vision of Life rose before me and I compared, with this m'ighty oak,
heroic men who had weathered the storms and sorrows of life, and had come out
victorious, or falling, had not lost their courage, but had striven to regain their former
position. Thus, for the first time I realized the full significance of an ancient
proverb, given to the world by a great teacher countless ages ago-"Our greatest
glory is not in falling, but in rising every time we fallf'

fag, lounging in steamer chairs under the trees, that 1t was being fully appre-
Wiia-. eiated. The girls, Anne, Mary, and Betty, had been discussing, with a
" N A great deal of animation, the camping trip, which they, with another girl,
were goinff to take.
'SI do wish Frannie-Y'
Anne got no further for a fourth girl came around tl1e corner, threw herself
on the grass, and her remark started a babble.
A "Whew! it's hot. Girls, I can go. I'n1 so glad. Let's start the sixth of July
and so miss all the traffic over the Fourthf'
So it was decided and on the morning of July sixth, these four girls started
off on their first camping trip, a small lake upstate being their objective. Nothing
of any importance happened on the trip, unless having to change a punctured tire
would be called an important event. On the third day of their trip, they came to
the lake and drove almost all the way around before they found what suited them.
They finally found a pine grove, with a clearing just large enough to pitch camp,
on the shore of a secluded cove. Everything was perfect, made especially for them,
the girls declared.
During the day everything was fine but that night, as the girls were sitting
around the camp fire, queer blue and violet lights began to glide over the water.
It was Mary who noticed them first and consequently dropped her marshmallow
in the fire.
'LLook at those lights. They seem to be coming out of the woods at the end
of the cove. Now it's blue, no green, no-, oh I don't know what color. Anne
bring a flashlight quickly."
"You're seeing things, Mary. Oh-h-h, I do see it. Quick, Anne, with the
flash." Betty, who said that, was the youngest of the group and very imaginative.
"Let's investigate," said Anne, coming out of the tent with two flashlights and
"Nothing doing tonight. If you want to go chasing a dancing light and fall
into holes and all that, I'm sure I don't,i' declared Frannie. "Daylight is better to
find things by, anyway?
"I say that, too," came Betty's voice, in a whisper.
- "Come, brace up, 'Bet'. remember you're not a green freshman any longer."
"You havcn't much to say, Frannief' snapped Betty.
The next day the girls tramped all around but found nothing but some things
left by chance picnickers. However, the lights continued every night and the girls
were getting so frightened that they vowed they were going home if the lights didn't
stop. Then IT, fBetty always reminds people that the word is capitalizedj, hap-
pened, exactly one week after the girls first saw the lights.
Mary, the lover of sweets, was toasting her marshmallows over the fire a.nd the
other girls were sitting around, chiding her about her appetite, and watching for
their fairies, as they laughingly called the lights. Soon they appeared, danced a
very few minutes, then stopped. Almost immediately there was a crashing in the
woods directly in back of the tent. This time the girls did not wait for daylight,
but snatched their flashlights and went back to where the noise was coming from.

There, entangled in the bushes, they found a ragged, old man. His hair was long
and ill kept, his beard, a dirty gray, and his face and hands streaked with dirt and
scratched by the bushes.
"I've found it, I've found it. I have it now. Keep away, let me go, I know
what it is. Blue plus violet with a little green, that's it," thus was this man raving
as the girls approached.
"What shall we do? He,s crazy and we are miles away from help." Betty
was again starting her bewailings. This time the girls did not bother to scold
for they all realized the danger.
"Give me food, lim hungry, starved-but I must go on. How can gl? Give
me foodf' the man kept on raving.
Now Frannie took the initiative and said, 'iAll right, we'll give you food, if you
come this way," and turning, she led the way back to camp. There two girls started
to fry some bacon while the other two guarded the man. At last he was through
and the girls begged to hear his story, saying they would take him where he wanted
to go. He agreed and this was the tale he told: Q
" 'Way back in '65, when I was in the battle of Gettysburg, I saw some queer
lights and ever since then I have been experimenting to find the most uncanny light
in the world and now I have it. Hooray! blue plus violet with a little green."
It was told concisely and connectedly enough yet the girls knew he was not all
there and in a hurried council, they decided to guard him during the night and
start off for the nearest city early in the morning.
In the city it was found that this man was supposed to have been killed in the
Civil War, for no one had ever heard of him since. The authorities thanked the
girls heartily for their service and bravery and promised correct treatment for him.
After this they were all going back again to camp but nothing else happened
during their stay. The girls always say they liked their "dancing lights" and will
never admit how often they were tempted to leave during the first week.

TO THE SENIOR CLASS OF F. I-I. S.
Oh, seniors, dear, of F. H. S.
You now must leave foreier,
From the ranks of a school you honor
To a place, some know not where,
It is hard, no doubt, to see you go,
But we know you can do none other
Than leave a hearty greeting to
The ones who'll follow in your steps.
You have toiled in gay contentment
And have met with true success.
Step by Stepn you'll onward go
Yet in Life's future days we know
That class of seniors ever gay
Will ne'er forget us, ne,er a day!

"A MIDNIGHT PROWLER"
ARRIS, please come home, we have been disturbed by noises and lights
around the barns and stables every night, the boys are worried," so his
Z wife wrote. Therefore he hurried home on the next train.
P' W 5 When Harris Wezman drew near the peaceful farm buildings lying in
the afternoon sun, he laughed at his fears, all seemed so peaceful and still. But
that night evidently there was some trouble, the horses stumbled in their stalls as
they rose to their feet. Harris Wezman drew on his clothes, lighted the lantern and
sought the cause of the disturbances. He found an old tramp lying at the foot of
the ladder that led to the old carriage room. The man was in great pain and
Harris decided he must have a broken leg. Having summoned assistance Wezman
had the man carried to the house and the doctor called.
The next morning the tramp refused to talk, only saying to summon the con-
stable and guard the carriage room that night. Much perplexed Wezman did as
That night four men were taken to the lockup. Still the affair remained a
mystery. What they wanted, what connection there was between the tramp and the
other trespassers could not be discovered. In the village the excitement died down.
One day, however, the old tramp was able to walk with a crutch. He followed
Wezman to the barn and there on the old ladder he confronted Wezman abruptly:
"See here, I'm your Uncle Angus Harding who disappeared several years ago, when
l was a boy and lived on this farm, I made a collection of rocks, fossils and the
like and hid them here. That has always been a hobby of mine. I called them
my treasure. One day a bunch of hoboes heard me so speak. They thought I
meant gold. They came here and I followed them. I wanted to see you, what you
were like, and above all I didnit want my boyhood treasures stolen."
Wezman could only stutter: "Uncle Angus, eh." .
"And now," continued Uncle Angus, "I must return home."
"But won't you visit longer or even make your home here?',
'CI may turn up here some day," and with a grim smile he left the barn. Soon
after Wezman saw him drive off.
Two years later came the news of Uncle Angus' death and a letter he had
written, telling them to fetch out the old box of stones and send it to Mr. Worthy.
Harris did as directed. Two months later came a check.
"I'll be dangedf' he said, gif there wasn't something in it after all."

THE DREAM SHIP
A small white ship goes slipping by,
Painted clear against the azure sky,
Swift as a bird it skims along,
While the gulls above shriek their weird free song.
That is the ship of my desire,
When it sails beyond the blue.
Then I know it will come to port .
In the Land where Dreams Come True.

OUR WASHINGTON TRIP
XCITEMENT, hustle, and bustle existed in every home Friday, April 15.
ya' The eventful day had arrived. Precautions were taken for the boat ride,
5 for we had faint suspicions of OIICOIHIHQ trouble, but when the boat pulled
' ' from the dock at 4 p. m. that afternoon we were all jubilant, advice from
parents and friends still ringing in our ears. We investigated the boat from top to
bottom, even to the pilot house. While we were tied up in Saybrook for one hour
and a half, some went below deck and wrote letters to their parents and others played
cards. I'm afraid we didnit get much sleep that night, not that we were sick. Oh,
no, we were in the best of health for we were all up early the next morning to
watch the boat enter New York harbor. We went by bus to the Pennsylvania station
where we got a train for Washington. The Union Station, our first sight in Washing-
ton, made a big impression on us. We were conveyed by taxis to the George
Washington Inn where we were shown our rooms.
After unpacking and getting settled we went to Georgetown where we saw Holy
Gross defeat Georgetown University much to the delight of Mr. Burns. We also saw
Frank Odlum, Class of 1922, there. Saturday night after finishing dinner we
rushed up to the Congressional Library. We wandered through the building, the
reading room making the biggest impression. It is a rotunda, with thousands of
books on surrounding shelves.
Sunday morning, several members of the party went to visit the monastery.
The remaining members searched for a church. By the time we found one it was
too late to enter, so we had a chance to see a great deal of Vvashington, also to try
the "Happiness Drug Storesf, Ask some of the girls about that.
After lunch we took the bus for Arlington. The graves of the soldiers, the new
amphitheater, the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the Lincoln Memorial came
under our scope on this trip. The cherry trees were just beginning to bloom. AS
we rode all afternoon, our chaperons, Miss Heffernan and Mr. Burns, thought we
had better take a walk, so up Pennsylvania Avenue we promenaded that evening.
A glorious day awaited us Monday morning in which our guide directed our
steps to Washington Monument. A few were enterprising enough to walk up and
down the monument. The rest of us waited in the "riding line" for an hour or
more then went soaring skyward in the elevator. It was a wonderful view from
that height of 504 feet. On our way back to the Inn via the White House we saw
the children gathered for the egg rolling contest. We were going to enter too but
we forgot to get our basket of eggs.
After another hasty lunch we went up to the trolley stop and there took a car
to the wharf. It really is a great deal of fun to hang onto one of the straps in a
trolley and ride the curves. I assure you these abound in Washington. Waiting
in that terrible crowd, we thought the boat would never arrive which was to transport
us to Mt. Vernon. Wfe couldn't wiggle one way or the other while in the crowd.
Ou the way clown the river we entertained the other people by our singing and
cheering. Whether they enjoyed it or not, I cannot say. We wandered around
Mt. Vernon for three-quarters of an hour. We simply had glimpses of the rooms
for somebody seemed to be forever pushing us onward.
After dinner we went uptown to a show. As Keith's had a full house without us
we made our way to Poli's. '
The next morning we were supposed to do the public buildings but they did us.
The first stop was at the Bureau of Printing and Engraving. It seemed as though
iSQQvf-E- Z'2- '-' keg? " 'C:?-iii!-bv'
all of New York, Connecticut, and several other states had congregated at this place.
As we survived this ordeal we next proceeded to the Pan-American Union Building.
Here a jolly old gentleman showed us about. The open patio filled with tropical
plants and two tropical birds was one of the prettiest sights. The Aztec Garden
was wonderful. The last building was the National Museum. We didn't have time
enough to view all of the euriosities here but did see animal skeletons, rocks, stuffed
animals, and wax figures.
The afternoon was free to be spent as we desired. That night a few members
of the Collinsville group came over to the lnn. We danced, played cards and talked.
After we walked down to their hotel we concluded we fared better than they.
The Capitol completed our views of the public buildings. We saw all the
executive rooms and imagined ourselves occupying a seat there some day in the
future. We climbed to the dome, where we obtained a lovely view of Washington.
Afterwards Emma, Ethel, and Betty with Mrs. Doody, our guide, visited the Corcoran
Art Gallery, Red Cross Building, and the Army and Navy Building. The remaining
members of the party went to the Zoo. We were afraid they would keep us there
but we eluded them.
That afternoon was free and was spent in various ways. We took in a show at
Keith's during the evening even if the weather was damp.,
There was some scrambling to pack our grips and get the eight o'clock at the
Union Station. We went about Philadelphia in a sight seeing bus, the only two
stops being made at Independence Hall and at Green's Hotel for lunch.
At Jersey City, Allan Watson and Jack Dillon left the party as they were
remaining until Sunday with relatives. Madeline and J ack Bowler, Anna Flood, and
Mr. Burns left the party at the Grand Central Station, the rest of us going on to
Hartford. We arrived there at 7.59, tired and happy. We all appreciate the help
which the townspeople and friends gave us to make our trip possible.

PETER, VERSUS THE REGULAR, FELLOWS
Q ETER was his mother's boy-he always had been and it looked as if he
always would be. The fellows thought it was too had because he could
have made a real boy of himself if his mother had'not kept him tied to
n "' her apron strings so long. His mother was unaware of the fact that she
was making life hard for Peter and often wondered why the other boys didn't take
him with them when they went swimming, camping, hiking, or skating.
One hot afternoon just before the gang went down to the 'cole swimmin' hole"
Peter came along with his music roll under' his arm, on his way to his lesson. He
was immaciilately clean and his hair had been combed and groomed to the nth degree.
He would have been quite respectable, they' thought, if it were not for his manner,
his hands, his glasses fgreat horn rimmed ones which stood out very prominently on
his nosel and his silly walk. '
"L-etis muss him up a bit," said Harry, softly, "he looksutoo nice and cool on
this hot day." ' ' ' '
So they agreed-captured Peter and speedily silencing his loud but useless
protests, hauled him off to an old barn.
Someone blindfolded him and led him on to a plank which Harry and Mike were
holding about two inches from the ground. The gang kept shouting directions until
,S ,ilfarmingtnn ,stuhent .
Pete thought he was about fifty feet in the air and for this reason he wouldn't jump
for fear of breaking his neck. To make up for that the boys put him into an old
blanket and tossed him into the air until he was so dizzy he couldn't see. Last but
not least they took him over to the "ole swimmin' hole" and threw him in clothes,
music and all.
At last they let him go and followed him home to see what kind of a reception
he got. Peter said not a word when his mother scolded him and fifteen minutes
later he reappeared on the way to take his belated music lesson. The boys marvelled
that he dare face them again but he was coming down the street whistling.
"Hello, fellows, goin' swimmin' when I come back?" he asked.
With this they decided that after a little training Pete would be a regular fellow
in spite of his n1other's attitude and other handicaps.

TAKING CARE OF THE BABY
RS. SMITH went over to Mrs. Jones' house for five minutes one da ' and
1 ' mv- ' . . I
6 ri left Billy to take care of her youngest offspring, Esmerelda, who happened
4 , to be about three years old. .
Billy expected Esmerelda to behave as usual, so he borrowed his
mother's clothesline and tied her down to the table, leaving her hands free. Esmerelda
immediately began "yelling", which was a favorite occupation of hers, and to
quiet her, Billy gave her the first thing he laid his hands on, which happened to be
the scissors. Then thinking that all was well, since Esmerelda was tied down and
quiet, he sneaked out the back door and over to the lot where the rest of the alley
were playing ball. He only plannedtto stay' for two or three minutes, for he
intended to get back before his mother arrived on the scene.
Two hours later, his mother remembered that she had left the corned beef
boiling five minutes ago, and it was now time to put the cabbage on. Corned beef
and cabbage was Mr. Jones' favorite dinner. So Mrs. Jones hastened to her residence,
hurried into the kitchen and saw spread before her, a scene of utter destruction. 3
Esmerelda had somehow managed to sawithe rope with the scissors and was
now sitting in the middle of the floor, wondering why the scissors wouldn't break
when she bit on them. The remains of the breakfast were scattered on the floor,
for Mrs. Jones had not started her morning's work, and Esmerelda had given the
table cloth a couple of jerks and destruction followed. A tattered old cat now
sat on the floor drinking up the only milk Mrs. Jones had in the house. Everything
in reach had been cut and whacked at by the ambitious Esmerelda's scissors. , And,
Esmerelda herself presented a pretty well dilapidated appearance as ga result of
spilling a bottle of bluing from the table over herself. The corned beef was burning
and in hurrying to right some of the things in the kitchen, she put Esmerelda in
the sink and set the dishes in a chair. Then she hurried out after Billy, who, deem-
ing it time to return home, had come in the front way as his mother went out the
back door. - p
When he saw the kitchen, he made a dive for the cellar and started bringing
up armful after armful ,of wood. This took the edge from the scolding which his
mother administered when she came home.

WHY CIGARETTES ARE HARMFUL
NE day last year when I was traveling to New York on a train I overheard
- - the following conversation between a senior in a certain high school and a
4 freshman from the same school. From the opening of the conversation
Q' " I gathered that the senior was a player on the 'varsity squad and also
coached the freshman basketball squad. After a discussion on the merits of certain
players of the team, the freshman broke in: 4'But why didn't you let 'Spud' Morgan
play in the Friday night's game?" he said.
"Well, you seef' the upperclassman answered, "he broke training rules by indulg-
ing in smoking cigarettesf'
"What difference does that make?" the freshman asked, "A few cigarettes can't
hurt a person."
"You're right there,', was the reply, 'ibut a few cigarettes may lead to a habit
and in the habit lies the whole trouble with cigarette smoking."
"Explain your meaning."
"Well, when a fellow once attains the habit of cigarette smoking he can never
break himself unless he uses a very strong will power, and very few people want
to do that. When a person first begins to smoke he seldom inhales, but gradually
as the habit grows he inhales more. This inhalation does the harm and holds the
smoker to the habit. It causes an irritation in the throat which can be appeased
onlyby more smoke. Yvhen he tries to break himself of the habit this irritation
drives him into desperation and he seldom has the will power to resist the temptation.
Nowjto get to the harm in the habit, the nicotine in the tobacco smoke, attacks the
mucous membranes and the delicate tissues in the lungs. These tissues are built
by nature through the oxygen we breathe and are destroyed by the carbon dioxide
which we exhaleg and when the nicotine comes in contact with these tissues it, tears
them down faster than they can be built up by the oxygen. If you have ever noticed
a habitual smoker at work and a man who does not smoke you cannot help but see
that the smoker is shorter winded than the other and is affected more by hard work.
When you go out into the world and apply for positions where you must have a
steady nerve and a cool brain, the first requisite you must have is a freedom from
the smoking habit. If, however, you haven't that requisite you cannot hope to
acquire the job, which probably has numerous lives dependent on its completion,
because your senses have been dulled by the nicotine. If it was a job where you
would have to read signals in a fraction of a second you would miss it in nine times
out of ten. And, as for the case of 'Spud' Morgan, he, if he were allowed to go
unpunished for that offence, would undoubtedly try a second time and then again,
until he got into the habit which would slacken his playing ability., by shortening
his wind and dulling the fine perceptions of smell, sight, and hearing. Furthermore,
if he were allowed to go unpunished, others would follow his example and our
team would eventually fall to the bottom of the league."
"But why did you let Mike Andrews go' off and have a good time Friday night?
He smoked then and you let him," asked the now interested freshman.
"Oh, that was a different case altogether. Mike was overtrained. He had trained
to such a point that he was too highly strung and nervous. He could not sleep
nights and fumbled and made mistakes in the practice games because he was over

long enough to bring him back to his former good health. That was where the
cigarettes came ing they soothed his nerves and allowed his mind to rest long enough
to get him into a good night's sleep. That is one case where cigarettes do good,
even better then a drug could, but don't get it into your head that cigarettes are
beneficial to you because they are not. They, just like any other drugior narcotic,
are helpful when taken under certain circumstances but if abused they can become
demons that will wreck your health."
At this point I was obliged to leave this very interesting conversation, because
I had arrived at my destination, but left that coach with a"'bee in my bonnet." I
must admit that it gave me a new point of view on this question of cigarette smoking.

25,jf'fygg SCHOONER, "The Mouse", slid into the harbor, just before dusk. Even
,ktfjl now, the fiery colors of sunset were just dying from the placid bay at
R, Q Honolulu. Exactly three weeks ago, "The Mouse" had quietly slipped
'wi' ' from that same bay, and gone far away to the pearl fisheries. Captain
Frazer and Fred Basil had had wonderful luck, for now there were two' beautiful
pearls in their possession.
As the partners stood side by side, doubt was in their minds as to whom they
could trust or whom they could not trust. They were tired of the everlasting anxiety
of watching the treasure.
"That darned little Chinaman, Sing Ling. I wish he wasn't on this boat. I
have race prejudice, I guess," remarked the Captain.
"Well, where'll we put the pearls?"
"Oh, in my safe."
Just then they heard a soft sound behind them, and Sing Ling announced that
supper was ready.
About ten that night, getting ready for bed, the Captain, trying to think of a
good hiding place, heard the cry of "F ire! Fire!" Without thinking he shoved
the pearls into the safe and clanged the door shut, but in his haste did not latch it.
When the small fire in the kitchen had been put out, and the Captain was
returning to his room, he saw a shadow fall in the flood of light from his room.
He sneezed, and a man sprang from the doorway, bumped into him, fled the other
way, Frazer lunging after him.
"I'll bet ten dollars 'tis that Chinaman," he muttered.
He was almost upon the man, who swerved suddenly, and jumped overboard.
The Captain listened. No splash! "Hm. Funny."
Then he shouted, "Bring me a light and a ladder." Two men came running
to him, after a few moments, and twenty more were at their heels. The ladder was
lowered, and with a flashlight, Frazer clambered over. Half-way down the ladder,
he heard a curious tattoo beside him. Flicking it on, it shone right in the face of a
small man, caught on a huge hook, and beating his bare heels against the side of
The pearls were found in a little pocket inside the coat.
Later that night, the Captain, looking up at the stars, said to the little cook
beside him, "Sing, I ain't got no race prejudice now. Have a smoke?"

"THE FATAL STEPV
HARLOTTE MORAN was one ofthe most successful, if you may call it
successful, jewel smugglers of the underworld..
She stood on the deck of the steamship "lVlauratus" as though she
i 'r' hadn't a fear or care in the world. The breezes stirred the silk of her
Paris gown and blew strands of golden hair against her rosy cheeks. Her chic little
hat of blue only helped to deepen the shade of her violet-blue eyes. She might have
been a debutante returning from a short vacation abroad, from all appearances.
Soon all was astirg the passengers were gathering their baggage together and
preparing to declare their purchases abroad at the custom house. People strolled
by her with papers in their hands containing the articles and the valuation of the
As the steamer docked and the passengers formed a line, waiting for their turn
to declare their purchases, Charlotte squeezed into the line. A porter by her side
had several suitcases and the checks for her trunks. In her hand Charlotte carried
a smartblack handbag. Suddenly her sereneness and calm deserted her, she became
uneasy and restless, her fingers twitched, her eyes shifted. .
The person in front of her was moving on! Semi-consciously she handed her
declaration of articles to the officer. He looked over the list-two wardrobe trunks,
seven dresses, two wraps, three hats, shoes, etc.-the list was typical of an American
returning from abroad. He did not bother to examine her baggage but just estimated
the duty she must pay. He smiled at her and she started to walk away. The first
step was a fatal one, a string of pearls dropped from beneath her skirt and lay
at her feet! A flush rose to her face and then ebbed away as quickly as it had
come. She was her quick-witted self in an instant. She dashed down the gangplank
and directly into a taxi seemingly waiting for her. She did not stop to look at the
driver, because it was all planned, that someone would be there in case anything
happened. She settled back into the 'corner of the taxi to gloat over her success,
but then an uncanny feeling seemed to come over her. She began asking herself,
why hadn't any officer detained her immediately, how had HRedf' managed to get
a taxi at the very end of the gangplank? These and other questions dawned upon
her. She laughed, however, to herself, and her caution subsided. The taxi stopped
and as she was about to step out, to her great surprise she found her taxi surrounded
by policemen! Her gaze wandered past them and instead of seeing the well-known
hovels of the East Side slums, the stately City Hall met her view. Only then did
she realize that she was caught, she immediately thought of what the search would
reveal! Thousands of dollars of jewels and precious stones sewn and fastened into
her clothing were found. DOROTHY RICE, 1929.

GHOSTS I SHOULD LIKE TO MEET AND KNOW,
I wouldn t mind meeting the ghosts of certain people that I know of.
,Q J I should like to meet Shakespeares ghost-for one. Id like to ask him
"WPT: ia why he ever wrote such plays and books. Just think of the terrible stories
he wrote. I donit see why he didn't write something a little more interesting. If
ever I met his ghost and started to tell him what I thought of 'his literature, I'm
afraid the poor ghost would disappear from sight much quicker than he came,
rather than listen to me rating his books and plays. I can just about imagine his
horrified looks. That is, as much as you could see of his expression, for his face
is nearly covered with whiskers. And I wonder what he would think of our modern
manners, customs, conveniences, and luxuries. It would be fun to see him walking
around, taking in the new ways and to see him become so shocked at some of the
things. It would be fun. to meet Lamb's ghost. We could give him a piece of our
minds about his works of literature. I don't believe there is anything would give
me greater pleasure. Then, too, Lamb's ghost would be interesting in itself. It
might do us a little good if vie just listened to him talk. Then there is Queen
Elizabeth's ghost. She was such a stern queen. Besides, she had a very quaint
personality. Imagine her around here now. I don't know what I would say to
Julius Caesaris ghost. The only thing I could say, would be to ask him why he
was such a fighter. Also, why he didn't use a few of his brains and heed the
warnings that were given to him on the day he was murdered. So far as Cleopatra
is concerned, I should like to meet her very much. She lived a gay life. If she
would tell about it to us in her own words it certainly would be interesting. I'd like
to see what there was about her that could attract the men to her, to make slaves
out of them. Next there is the ghost of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. It would
be nice if they could take us to their court and entertain us.
I couldn,t forget George Washington. That is a ghost whom-I would like to
meet. Just think of all he could tell us about our country when it first became
one of the world nations. He would find numerous changes in this country. As
the Indian would say, "Heap big change." I can hardly imagine what he would
say or do. If he saw' a cherry tree, he would probably tell us about his experience
with the cherry tree. Speaking of Washington makes me think of Betsy Ross. She
must have been a sweet little woman. Wouldn't it be fun to have her tell us of the
trials and tribulations of making a new flag for a new nation? There are two
more ghosts I should like to meet, Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain. They would
be interesting. One for his earnestness and kindness of heart, the other for his
humorous nature and jolly ways. Then, too, Mark Twain is from around these
parts. Oh, I could go on naming these ghosts I should like to meet for some time.
If I keep on this way, I will never finish my other tasks.

UR Senior year has nearly rolled by. It has been filled with work and
'- play, such as studies, raising funds for our Washington Trip, and social
" ' A In order to show the Freshmen we welcomed them to Farmington High
School, we gave the Freshman Reception in September. Music was furnished by the
"Three Owls" Orchestra. I am sure we convinced the Freshmen of our sincerity
and showed other people we were capable of entertaining.
Not only for tradition's sake but to put funds in the treasury we gave our
Senior Play. The committee had some trouble in picking out a suitable play.
Finally they decided on "Always in Trouble" whiclf neither had too many characters
nor was it too difficult. One reason I think they took this was that it had an
appropriate title for us. Nearly every Senior had a part in it. lt was a big
success, thanks to the townspeople and others who helped us. We put it on in
Unionville, December 10, and in Farmington, December 11.
As we were afraid that theatre managers would approach us if we put on more
plays, we decided to give a movie, "Braveheart", and dance. We here thank Mr.
Joyce for his kindness. Due to the efforts of the committee and the wonderful
response of the public, this too was a success both socially and financially.
Lunches were served at school once a week in January. Also three food sales
were held in Mr. Halels store. All of this nearly filled our pocketbook.
- Still we did not have enough. At length we convinced Mr. Gregory and Mr.
Mandrey that we needed more money in order to realize our dreams. They consented
to our presenting another movie, "The Last Frontier", which furnished the desired
The boys in the class collected old newspapers and magazines. By doing this,
they relieved the people of the papers and magazines and helped fill the treasury.
It was a case of killing two birds with one stone.
Due to the generous response of the townspeople and everyone else we were
able to realize our dream. You will see what a wonderful time we had by reading
the account of it found elsewhere in the book or ask any Senior.

In athletics we were represented by James Joyce, John Dillon, Elmer Cross,
and Roger Wilson. Betty Lee represented us in the Glee Club. Allan Watson and
Roger Wilson were in the- orchestra. Elmer Cross as President, and Betty Lee as
Secretary, showed our position in the Athletic Association. I might here say that
thc Senior Class had the largest percentage of full fledged members in the association.
Although our class is small we have veryhigh ranks. Over half the class had
an average of eighty or over for the four years of school. The seven highest are
arranged in the order of the standing:

'Twas a dark and stormy night,
And the watchers patroll'd the shore,
On the look-out for sign of wreck or light,
Keeping watch till the hour of four.
But all unknown to them,
A ship was floundering in that storm,
Upon those jagged "Rocks of Man,"
Known to others as the "Sea Cod's Forum."
And the wild waves dashed upon those rocks
And tore the ship asunder, board by board
Till nothing was left, not even a lock
All the crew had perished, and the sea had scored
The morning after, the sun shone bright,
On a scene that little hinted of disaster that night.

The boys showed good spirit in raising funds for new uniforms on
Saturdays during the first part of the season. Practice was held on Curtin's Field
in Farmington four miles away, which was a severe handicap to Coach Donovan and
the students who were on the baseball squad. As in basketball, the coach had to

4,5 HIS year the basketball team was handicapped on account of not always
being able to secure a place in which to practice and because a whole
new team had to be organized.
M- " Miss Baker, our coach, finally picked the following team: Forwards,
Viola Toth and Stella Nicksong centers, Sarah Miller and Isabel Smithg guards,
Gertrude King and Christine Young. The substitutes were Gladys Reid, Alice Tluck,
Mary Hassett, Elizabeth Flood and Harriet Tew. Viola Toth was elected Manager,
and the team chose Stella Nickson, Captain.
During the season we played Collinsville, Windsor and the American School
for the Deaf. In every game we were defeated although we tried our very best to
win for F. H. S.
We hope to have the same team next year with renewed skill and vigor, as we
lost no Seniors by graduation.

THE GLEE CLUB
.LZVTQIE HIS year we organized our Glee Club with Elizabeth Lee as President,
Isabel Smith, Vice-President, Mary Lauretti, Secretary, Lillian Joyce,
Treasurer. For a long time we worked hard on the operetta "The Wild
i " Rose." Miss Staples, the president of last year's Glee Club, kindly helped
us out. It was presented at the Town Hall on April 29, 1927. We made a good

The annual contest was held at Bloomfield, May 13. Other high schools which
have larger and better Glee Clubs, competed. We did not win first prize, though
we did win third place. Therefore, we look to our next Glee Club to win the cup.
ln behalf of the Glee Club, l extend our sincere thanks to Mrs. Curtis, who has
done such splendid work, and has spent so much time in our interests. It is
certainly appreciated by the school.
ELIZABETH LEE, 1927.
Minutes pass, hours pass, fast fly the days
Bringing ever nearer the parting of our ways.
Commencement draws nigh, we are happy, yet grieve
At the close of our school days, dear F. H. S. to leave.
Our friends and our classmates we will ever remember
And the good times we've had since that day in September.
When we entered the portals of F. H. S.
Living up to our motto of "Step by Stepf,
We've had our troubles and we've had our good times
We've studied with vigor what our teachers assigned. '
We have worked and won, and now realize L
That much more would we do, could we but rc-live our lives.
But now we must part, each on his way
Hoping to meet again some sweet day
Under our colors of crimson and white
So, dear school, we must bid thee, good night.
ALETA FULLER, 1927.
