W ANNIVERSARY f
HE whole country is in the throes of a great depression, a depression
which is now well on its fourth year. Business is crippled to such an
extent that unemployment has mounted steadily since that historical
"crash" of 1929, Many of our former schoolmates are still "on the outside
looking in", and soon we, the class of '33, will be precipitated into the midst
of the general chaos, having completed our required four years at Farmington
High. A rather alarming and by no means pleasant prospect, to be sure: yet
we are not daunted and have perfect confidence in our motto "Qui Laborat
Vincitf' Although our first bout with the business world will undoubtedly
be a hard one, we are prepared to accept hard knocks philosophically, realizing
that we are but a small group among many millions whose experiences during
the past years have undoubtedly been much more extensive and bitter than
ours will ever be. We feel that, slowly but surely, prosperity is rounding
the proverbial corner and bringing with it many golden opportunities of which
we shall be quick to take advantage. By earnest cooperation with the
government and a general feeling of good will and confidence we shall surely
prove that the younger generation can and will come through with flying colors.
In writing this book we have endeavored to make it a worthy example
of the work we are doing at school, and at the same time to show the marvelous
school spirit and good will which make up a great part of our school life.
Also may we here express our gratitude to the townspeople who, in spite of
the existing economic conditions, have eagerly rallied to our support with
generous financial contributions which have made the publication of this book

S the class is congregated here, we should realize that before us is an
era into which no other class has ventured. During this "New Deal"
era, we shall be summoned to courageously bear and perform duties
heavier and more afflicting than the burdens of any preceding class. Ever
since Caesar, Cicero and Vergil, various histories have been written but no
material, as you shall hear, affords better subject for history than this Class
In the month of September, 1930, after the graduation of the Unionville
junior High and the Farmington junior High, the class of 1933 began their
Sophomore year at the Farmington High School, numbering forty-three. This
was Mr. Ellis's first year as principal of the school. Our class was unnotice-
ably changed until january, when "Tcny" Grocki joined us. He gained
popularity during the 1932-33 basketball season, with many of the junior High
boys by admitting them to the games through secret passages. At the half
year, Harold English moved to West Hartford and enrolled in William Hall
High School. On February 13 the Sophomore Reception was held in the
Auditorium and proved to be a great social success. The Auditorium was
decorated exceedingly well. A striking part of the decorations was a large
valentine in the center of the stage with electric light rays extending to the
outside edges. Martha Bergen said farewell to the class in March. We missed
her more than words can express.
Thus we entered our junior year with but one more year at Farmington
High School. In February, Eleanor Adams joined our class, coming from
Suffield. On April 1 the junior Prom was given, which proved to be a social
and financial success, more socially because of the large number of juniors
that attended the dance. During the latter part of May, the annual junior
play, "Home Again Harry" was presented. Those who took part proved to
us that we have some real acting talent in our class.
Now for the grand old Senior year, the year of years. Words are
inadequate in reviewing this paradoxical year, still we wish to mention a few
outstanding incidents of the Senior year. We had the privilege of admitting
another member into our class, namely, Ralph Olson, who came from
Glastonbury. During the month of November a play, "Where's Grandma?".
was presented. The cast worked hard and was well rewarded for its efforts.
In this play a new actor was brought to light, none other than Bill Bronson.
who found no trouble in entering into his r6le whole-heartedly.
No doubt Miss Clark will not have to wait next year for the Shorthand
Class to begin as she did this year, for Mary Silver never seems to appear
on time on transcription days. Talking about the Silvers, perhaps john.
who has become a very enthusiastic history student, may be taking Miss
Reed's position after he is graduated.
Almost any day after the spring vacation, one might see several Seniors
especially prinked up enroute to the photographers where they were to undergo
the trials of posing for a lifelike photo, which might afterwards be used as
an "Arrow Collar" or "Typical Americal Girl" ad. Then another trip after
the proofs, still another for a re-sitting and so, after much deliberation, the
best picture was finally selected. In years to come we shall look over these
pictures of our classmates and shall, no doubt, recall some little incident in
connection with each.
The Washington trip, usually made by the Seniors, was replaced this
year by a trip to New York. Twenty-one Seniors, accompanied by Miss
Clark and Mr. Murphy, left on Monday, April 24, and returned the following
Wednesday. Many interesting places were visited and everyone thoroughly
enjoyed the trip.
The day on which honors were announced brought to an end the curiosity
and anticipation of many ambitious Seniors Andrew Lesiak won the vale-
dictory, and Carolyn Hitchcock won the salutatory honors.
So it has come to pass that forty-three students will depart as Seniors,
each to go his separate way. The associations formed we must sever, but
when in after years we return as alumni, we shall still feel that we are a part
of Farmington High School.
Doms CROMACK, '33.
SCENE: Broker's office on Wall Street, New York, in 1950.
I am greeted by Samuel Robotham, on entering his private oflice.
SAM.illW2ll, well, if it isn't George Lusk. It has been years since I
have seen you. Down here on business?"
GEO.-"Partly, Standard Oil sent me down to analyze and test its new
rocket petroleum. If you have any tips on the market. I could use them. By
the way, how is your business?"
SAM.-"It's rushing, George, but we have to watch our step. The steel
magnates are trying to control the market and ruin the small stockholders.
It's a hard fight, but our syndicate is winning out with the help of 'Babe' Lesiak
who, by the way, has become an excellent lawyer. Grace Flood is his private
secretary. What has become of all the Class of '33?"
GEO.-"Well, Sam, I met Iimmie Morrissey a few days ago. I-le's the
New England agent of the London Shirt Corporation Unlimited. He said
he sent an order of six dozen silk shirts to Professor Hartigan, Dean of the
College of Siam. Furthermore, I hear that the sensational chemical engineer,
Ralph Olson, is making a fortune ridding the royal palace of ail insects, by
means of his special tear gas."
SAM.-"Th3t'S interesting, George. The other day I was at Greenwich
and visited Margaret Day in her studio. Stanley Whiteman is official keeper
of her paints and brushes."
GEO.-"Good old Stanley. Have you heard that Lois Petersen, Victoria
Valigorsky, and Catherine Revak have established a reducing parlor which
has become famous and draws people from all over the United States, Europe
SAM.-"No, George, but good for them. Are many of our classmates in
politics? I hear Bill Bronson is candidate for mayor of Hartford on the
GEO.-"Yes, he is running against Louis Parrott, the present Communist
mayor. What has become of lack Scoville?"
SAM.-AKH6 is working for the abolition of dance halls and beer gardens
in West Avon. Carol Brooks is the first Connecticut Woman Senator. Quite
an honor, what?"
GEO.-"I'll say, but speaking of dance halls, Raymond Hitchcock is
operating 'The Shaky-Hoof' in Burlington. 'lug' Grocki and Stanley
Kacmarcik are official bouncers, while Ted Grocki is in charge of the musical
program: he drops nickels into the automatic piano player."
SAM.-llwhile strolling up Broadway I ran into Mary Chester, Edith
Iohansen and Louise Foryan. Each is a hostess in Ioe Hassett's exclusive
night club, 'Cave Inn'."
GEO.-"Ioe was quite a boy, Sam. When I was in 'Frisco last month
I saw Iohn Silver and Bill Duff take off in a rocket plane for the moon. They
expect to open new territory for the Kraft Cheese Company."
SAM.-"I hope they are successful. By the way, I hear that Carolyn
Hitchcock is running 'The Home for Dignified Ladiesf on Avon Mountain.
What is Walter Balazy doing now?"
GEO.-"Well, Sam, the last I heard he was in Moscow, teaching those
red devils advanced embroidery. Have you seen Roberta Parsons lately?"
SAM.-"No, George, she was one of the most prominent debutantes of
1937, and she continued her social activities."
GEO.-"That's fine. I hear that Ieannette Zegger and Ebba Nelson hitch-
hiked their way around the world. And the other day I saw Francis Day get
out of his Rolls-Royce and sell apples."
SAM.-"A great class, George. The other day I visited Casper Wildes
circus. Paul Aliano made my blood run cold as he wrestled with an ei ht-
foot Bengal tiger. And the way Doris Cromack and Lillian Toth did gips
on the trapeze!"
GEO.-"Do say, Sam. Hazel Alderman, Mary Silver and Sophie
Grigerick have entered the scientific field. They are experimenting with a new
type of banana: and expect to remove the skid from the peel. I learned from
them that Eleanor Adams, Ann Connelly, and Alice Gorman are now running
that famous Eskimo institution of higher and colder learning, Winterbury
Prep, in Alaska."
SAM.-"A great bunch, that Class of '33, and may they always be success-
ful. Well, George, as soon as I lock up the office let's have luncheon together."
GEO.-UO. K. Sam, let's go to the Club."
SAM.-"Right, and we can talk over old times."

A Close Shave
LIDGE MORRIS stepped into the barber shop. Every morning before
oflice hours he went to the same place to get a shave. Only a very smooth
face went with his position, he thought.
This morning only one of the five chairs was vacant. The Iudge hung
up his hat and coat and sat down. "Please hurry," he said, "I haven't much
"Will the gentleman have a shave?" asked the barber.
judge Morris's eyes opened wide. For five continuous years now every
morning he had come here to get a shave, and the barber's question surprised
him. He peeped into the mirror to see with whom he was dealing. It was
a new employee in the shop. He was a man about fifty years of age, consider-
ably corpulent, with hair growing very sparingly in a narrow line around the
back of his head, and, as the Iudge particularly noticed, he had a grim,
characteristic chin, which protruded far out of its natural bounds. "Where
have I seen that chin before?" he mused.
"Of course, I want a shave as usual," he said. '
While the barber pulled the razor across his face, the Iudge looked in
the mirror again. Suddenly he saw the man's eyes look directly into his own,
and as a very sarcastic smile spread over the barber's face he said, "Is every-
thing well with the Iudge?".
The Iudge grew very suspicious, becoming at the same time rather
frightened and he knew his feeling was noticeable. But the barber was
continuing, "I am Landry: Landry from New York," in answer to the Iudge's
Landry! Suddenly that name came to the Iudge. 4Why that was the
man whom he had tried to sentence to death twenty years ago! The jury,
however, sentenced him to twenty years. He had murdered his wife, Ioan, in
a fit of cruel jealousy.
While the barber continued to shave the Iudge roughly, he was talking
in a very low, unnatural voice. "The Iudge was very hard on me twenty
years ago. Twenty years is a very long time to serve for an action committed
in a rage."
Landry's voice changed. The words passed as though unwillingly
through his lips. His hands grew nervous.
Iudge Morris also grew nervous. With one stroke of the hand Landry
could pay him back for that twenty-year sentence! To get away? Impossible!
Shut in as he was between the stiff-backed chair and the barber's razor, escape
would be unheard of. Call for help? No. Help would come too late, for it
wouldn't take a second for Landry to obtain his revenge. Beads of perspira-
tion covered his forehead, and his eyes bulged out like doorknobs, while the
Iudge waited for something to happen.
"I can still hear the judge's voice," Landry was saying, " 'In my opinion
this man has earned a death sentence for himselfl' Hal A life didn't mean
much to you at that time, did it, judge Morris?"
Almost dead with fright the judge felt the sharp razor ride across his
Adam's apple. The feeling of safety that he usually felt at this moment had
left him and in its place there was an awful feeling of fright, an absolute
surety of certain death. Landry had proved before this that he was not one
who was afraid of blood. A little jerk, and the judge would feel the cold.
steel razor slide into his flesh. judge Louis Francis Morris would be no
more. With clenched teeth he waited-
Landry seemed to enjoy lengthening the time of suffering for his customer.
He passed the razor over the judge's throat again and again as though trying
to find the best place for his aim.
His face now was free from every hair, but the razor still continued to
do its work. One would think the barber got a great deal of pleasure out of
this sort of thing. He was talking again, "Of course, the judge was not all
to blame. I realize that I was at fault. But I was young, and hot-headed.
and I wanted my own way. But I didn't think-" He didn't finish it. "Poor
joan," he murmured.
Suddenly judge Morris took a deep breath, and his heart beat normally
again. He felt easier.
"I have turned over a new leaf," said Landry, "I have a wife and a
beautiful little daughter, and I love them both, though no one will ever take
the place of joan." Then as though trying to change the subject. "Please do
come again. I enjoyed serving you, judge Morris."
"Indeed I will, Landry," said the judge, still shaking. "I'm very glad
to see you as the man you are today."
But the shadow of judge Louis Francis Morris never darkened the door
of that barber shop again. I

To miss a kiss
Is more amiss
Than it would be
To kiss a miss:
The kiss you miss
The miss herself
Would never miss.
But if you try
To kiss a miss
With whom a kiss
Would be amiss
You'd better always
Miss the kiss.
Doms CROMACK, '33.
lWith apologies to Ioyce Kilmerj
I think that I shall never be
Half so itchy as a flea,
A flea whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the cursing soldier's chest,
A flea that scoots around all day,
hat bites while doing work or play:
A flea that ma in summer bear
A million offlspring in the soldier's hair:
Poems are made by saps like me
But only steam can kill a flea.

'Twas Saturday night and the teacher sat
Alone, her task pursuing:
She averaged this and averaged that
Of all that her class was doing.
She reckoned percentage, so many boys
And so many girls all counted,
And marked all the tardy and absentees.
And to what all the absence amounted.
Names and residences wrote in full,
Over many columns and pages,
Yankee, Teutonic, African, Celt,
And averaged all their ages.
The date of admission of every one,
And cases of flagellation,
And prepared a list of the graduates
For the coming examination.
Her weary head sank low on her book,
And her weary heart still lower,
For some of her pupils had little brain
And she could not furnish more.
She slept, she dreamed:-it seemed she died,
And her spirit went to Hades,
And they met her there with a question fair,
"State what the percent of your grade is."
Ages had slowly rolled away.
Leaving but partial traces,
And the teacher's spirit walked one day
In the old familiar places.
A mound of foossilized school reports
Attracted her observation,
As high as the State House dome, and as wide
As Boston since annexation.
She came to the spot where they buried her bones,
And the ground was well built over,
But the laborers digging threw out a skull
Once planted beneath the clover.
A disciple of Galen. wandering by,
Paused to look at the diggers
And, picking the skull up, looked through the eye,
And saw it was lined with figures.
"lust as I thought," said the young M. D.
"How easy it is to kill them:
Statistics ossified every fold
Of cerebrum and cerebellum."
"It's a great curiosity sure," said Pat:
"By the bones can you tell the creature?"
"Oh, nothing strange," said the doctor, "that
Was a nineteenth-century teacher."
Recipe for Class of '33
Take a little bit of Babe Lesiak's ambition
To this add a cupful of Louise Foryan's disposition
Then stir in a bit of Ieannette Zegger's poise
And Victoria's lively chatter, for a little noise
Add to this some of Margaret Day's peppy spice
A cupful of this will make it quite nice.
One-half cup of Whiteman's rythm and grace
Then mix in Edith's wavy hair and Robertas pretty face.
Grace Flood and Bill Bronson will furnish their best
For all sorts of athletics in which they've stood the test:
Then two spoonsful of Ebba Nelson's cheerful good will
And Hitchies's effervescence, be careful not to spill.
Stir these all together and don't forget to add
A bit of George Lusk's dignity which surely must be had.
Bake in a big brick oven for about four years,
At the end of that time add a frosting of tears,
Then place it on a platform in a great big room.
What will it be?, Why our class in lune,
Sorry to leave, as you will see.

Glastonbury and has easily made his way into our midst with
his friendly manner. He is another of our classmates who can
"trip the light fantastic" exceedingly well and has made quite

at Farmington High School. It is only by the cooperation of the alumni
and members of the town that these facilities may be enjoyed.
On December 20 the annual alumni basketball game and dance were
held. A great majority of the alumni were present, due to the fact that those
attending college were home for the Christmas vacation. The annual alumni
baseball game will be held this year and we hope to have the pleasure of seeing
more of the alumni.
We hope they will continue to give their ardent support and next year,

HE Senior Girls' Glee Club was organized in 1925. The first group
consisted of seventeen members. The presidents up to the present time
are: Irma Staples, '25-'26g Eliazbeth Lee, '26-'27: Mabel Smith, '27-'28:
Eileen Kennedy, '28-'29p Marie Porter, "29-'30: Edythe Laurette, '30-'3lp
Margaret Rossvall, '31-'32, Roberta Parsons, '32-'33.
The Club of 1933 started the year with a membership of about seventy.
This group being too large, a voice test was given to each person, thus limiting
the membership to fifty-five. The officers elected for the year are as follows:
President, Roberta Parsons: Vice-President, Catherine Collins: Treasurer,
Louise Pratt: Secretary, Eleanor Rose. The latter having left, she was suc-
ceeded by Arline Iudd.
Gut annual Christmas pageant was given in December in which both
the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs participated. The Girls' Club presented a
program of folk songs and Negro spirituals at a meeting of the Parent-Teacher
Association, Ianuary 16, 1933, in the Town Hall, Unionville.
Most of all we are looking forward to our annual concert which will be
given May 12, 1933. We are having three members do solo work, a quartet
from the Boys' Club and a combined group presenting Old English songs
done in costume and dramatized.
Taking an important part in the commencement exercises will be an out-
standing feature for the Club.
We are now looking forward to another season as successful as this has
been. To replace the Seniors of '33, another group as good and as cooperative
is expected in September to increase the membership.

the team was made up of all new material with the exception of a few players,
and practically all the first team will be back next season.
Arline Iudd, one of the year's outstanding players, was elected to captain
next year's team in place of Grace Flood, who will be lost through graduation.

ward for Farmington. Evelyn Iacques and Mary DeParolis also played
forward positions. Ruth Grant and Barbara Bass worked well together in the
center and Mary Harendarcik, Althea Graham, and Anne Dunne fought hard
for guard positions.
Credit is due Anna Manyak for successfully managing the team.
One could not find a more enthusiastic and scrappy sextet on the basket-
ball floor and to this fact we owe the large per cent. of victories which the
team brought to their school.

Miss Whitney and Miss Clark. The team entered the state triangular debates
and received the favorable decision of the judges in the debates with Glaston-
bury and Wallingford, later losing to Enfield and to Waterbury, whose team
won the State Championship.
The subject for debate was: Resolved: That at least one-half of all
states and local revenue should be derived from sources other than tangible

Boys' Varsity Basketball Team
The Farmington High School basketball team closed its season with a
decisive victory over Windsor High, winners of the Central Connecticut
Valley Championship, and also annexed its nineteenth win in 22 starts.
Although not represented in any league, Farmington High was rated as
one of the outstanding teams in the state in the class C and D schools.
Although having one of the best records in the state the team did not
qualify for the Storrs tournament, but added the championship of the Farm-
ington towns in the annual tournament.
The entire team will graduate this year: Iohn Silver, William Bronson.

We are quite sure that the following seasons of hockey will be as success-
ful under the guidance of Miss Lodge.

Iunior High School Boys' Basketball Team
Unionville Iunior High enjoyed its most successful season, winning ten
games and losing three. The team developed into a hard-working combina-
tion, never giving up until the last whistle.
M. Pannozzi was captain and proved to be a capable leader. Early in
the season, Tetro was lost by sickness. Although his scoring ability was
missed, Babcock was shifted to a forward position and teamed well with
Dorman. Canfield was given Babcock's guard position and both he and
Shearer proved to be good floor workers and fast passers.
Besides these men a strong reserve and second team developed.
Shearer was elected captain for next season and should prove a valuable
Pannozzi, Tetro, and Shearer will be with the team next year and with
the strong reserve strength should have an even better season next year.

With "Ted" Grocki as Captain, the prospects of the '33 baseball team
look very bright. The Farmington High nine, which is very strong this year,
is expected to go through the season without defeat.
With "Iohnny" Scheidel on the mound now in his best hurling stage,
and with the backing of the speedy infield and outfield, there is no more to
say than-a successful season is in sight.
The Farmington High boys will face some very strong teams this year.

Business College was called off on account of had weather. The schedule

The F. H. S. 1932 football team had a fairly successful season, when we
consider that only three letter men remained from the previous season. The
new recruits proved their worth under the capable training of Coach Murphy,
and added a fighting spirit to our ranks. We won three games, tied one with
Stafford Springs, for the second successive year, and lost four to stronger
The letter men were: Captain W. Bronson, F. DeParolis, A. Grocki,
W. Wells, King, A. Lesiak, R. Braman, Marek, S. Robotham, W. Duff.
L. Parrott, E. Anderson, R. Olson, W. Aston, and T. Grocki, Manager.
William Wells was elected captain of the team for 1933. He is extremely
fortunate in having six veterans as a nucleus for next year's team.
The football letters were awarded by Louis Bush, high collegiate scorer
of the East from Massachusetts State College, before the picture "The All

Track and Field
The Farmington High School is expecting a successful season in track
from Captain "Babe" Lesiak and his "tribe of fleetfootsn.
The team is made up of a group of flashy runners, such as Lesiak, Braman,
King, Brown, and Hotchkiss, who were teamed up last year and brought back
quite a few laurels.
The weight crew is also good and can be relied upon. A. Grocki seems
to lead, with Dobrynski and Braman close followers.
High jump honors are held by Alfred Carson who has a great deal of
agility in the air. Earl Clifford easily surpasses all in the broad jump.
Three meets have been arranged thus far with Simsbury, Southington.

The rifle team was organized in December, 1932. After having only two
practices we journeyed to Kingswood to meet with our first set-back by the
score of 949 to 848.
This did not bother the boys any because they turned around and defeated
the Connecticut State "Fresh" by the narrow margin of two points.
After this we suffered three defeats, losing to superior teams although we
made a good showing. The first loss was to the Loomis team to the tune of
972 to 903. Then at Middletown we lost by 55 points, the score being 968 to
913. ln a postal match with the Choate School in Wallingford we lost the
third match by 943 to 907.
Undaunted by these three losses the boys went out and administered a
Hdrubbingn to the Trinity "Frosh", by 912 to 800.
In our last match which was a return with Connecticut State "Frosh" we
lost by the score of 945 to 905.
Although they only won two out of seven matches, the boys should be
given credit for it was their first year, and the wins were against college
teams. We give credit to our Coach, Mr. Hiram Taylor, who kept our spirit
running high at all times.

Tars land and King Greed soon has them in his clutches. On this same island
is On-a-Grouch, who had previously been ship-wrecked and who had lost
everything to King Greed. On-a-Grouch is closely followed by Despair until
he drinks of a spring which he has been told is poisonous, only to find it is
the Spring of Ambition. He falls in a swoon while the spirits of the spring
come out and tell him what he had done. On-a-Grouch wakens and tells one
of the Captain's party what the poison spring really is. When the party has
lost everything and is also followed about by Shadows of Despair, they too
drink and King Greed is overthrown.

time or other, when it has played at the various Farmington High School func-
tions, will go down into posterity as one of the best of its kind. It is always
a source of great pleasure for parents and friends of High School pupils
to hear this orchestra play, because those interested realize the intense zeal
displayed by their able and enthusiastic director, Mr. Ellis, and by the

The Class of 1933 has contributed a large number of students to the
athletic program. Perhaps it will be many years before the school will have
such a successful year in sports. Not a little pride is felt in the fact that
sportsmanship found its way into all the games.
The class, however, is not restricted to athletic ability. It was the first
class in the history of the school to stage a successful play as Freshmen. "The
Kidnapped Freshman", given in that year, drew a large crowd, and the pro-
ceeds were given to the Seniors for their Washington trip fund. Other plays
were given during the years that followed.
Andrew Lesiak, valedictorian, and Carolyn Hitchcock, Salutatorian, headed
the honor roll which has claimed through the year a large percentage of the

September, 1932, has come and gone, and what was once just a great
army of boys and girls, has become the Senior Class of the Unionville Iunior
We promised great things and have done our utmost to give them to
you. First of all we donned our best frocks and enjoyed the Freshman
Reception. Then came the Faculty Tea sponsored by the Iunior Girls' Glee
Club and given for the Faculty of the Farmington High School. Like thunder
brought over the mountain by Rastus, came "Paints and Patches", the Iunior
High School Operetta directed by Mrs. Curtis. This production proved to be a
Our time has been occupied with things other than social activities.
Through all of our school year, we have carried the Blue and Gold onward
in the field of sports. In the fall, the hockey and soccer teams played on to
victory with the able help of their coaches. Miss Ames and Mr. Smith.
Basketball brought forth many fine ninth grade athletes, making us justly proud
of our athletic record.
Although we have in turn been social butterflies and athletic champions.
down underneath everyone of us has realized the responsibility of being Fresh-
men, and we have, studied and worked diligently as the honor roll proves.
Ruth Penley and Elsie Norgard have attained the highest scholastic averages.
Now, as our Freshman year draws to a close, we can say, "We were
eighth graders, we are Freshmen, and we will be a Sophomore class that the
Farmington High School will be proud of, remembering always our loyalty to
the Maroon and Gray".

CLASS FLOWER: Tea-Rose
On September 7, 1932, we entered the Farmington High School. We are
proud to be pupils of such a fine organization.
This year we have enjoyed playing basketball, hockey, and many other
games to which we were hitherto unaccustomed.
The girls have three basketball teams, called respectively, the "All-
Americans", "The Lone Stars", and "The White Socks". These three teams
play every week during gym periods. We hope to develop a good team so
that we may become athletes of whom our our school will be proud.
The boys also have their teams. They are called: "The Pirates", "The
Apes", "The Hill-Billies", and "The Tigers".
We also have enjoyed our Home Economics class. We have learned
how to cook many things, and to sew well.

To our own first lady who ruled with grace.
And her soldier husband, the famous George
Who forgot and won at Valley Forge.

A more likely man I never did see.

The Song of the Crocus
I am a harbinger of spring.
And with me, happy days, I bring.
When first my blossoms may, appear
The tired old world abounds in cheer.
After the winter's frosts and storms
When the sky turns blue and the cold earth warms
I am first, with my blossoms blue and white
To fill every heart with quiet delight.
Although my life-time is not as long
As summer flowers that are sturdy and strong
I play a part during that short life
That eases the cares of the winter's strife.
And now that spring's not far away
I'lI soon burst forth in my gay array
And smile with joy to hear people say
"Oh, see the Crocus-spring's on its way!"
ANN KELLY, '34
Adventures of a Pin
Well, Mame, this is a very nice card we are on but really, do you like
the company? Why, that fellow right next to you looks positively brassy.
Those shiny coats are all right but they won't last very long, and isn't it funny
how all the women expect us to be sterling in body as well as character? If
you ask me, it is our makeup that is sterling. It is peculiar what some people
expect at ten for a nickel.
Well, here we go. I wonder what the fates have in store for us? The
Romans used to say that everything had a certain destiny but I don't suppose
there were any Roman safety pins. In that case, do you suppose the theory
will hold good in our case? I'd like to think that there was some important
position in store for me-for instance, working for Mahatma Ghandi. That
is a place where a lot depends on constancy. Helping out in a case like that
would merit the title of an important auxiliary, at least.
This must be one of those trolley cars that I have heard about. Goodness
knows it's bumpy enough. Off at last! French heels, I bet. I can tell from
the jerky walk. Oh. what a dresser. I never saw such a heterogeneous assort-
ment of cosmetics, combs, ribbons, and different kinds of perfume before.
Consistency isn't her motto. I
What's the hurry! Oh, now I see why I came along. Not that I want to
be snooty but in a case like this I would suggest a needle and thread. Off
we go. The boy friend isn't my idea of the answer to a maiden's prayer. So
it is the cinema. Maybe I'm particular but with that new comic opera right
here in the city-l
Oh, what a picture! That's the third handkerchief she has wept into
tonight. Now Romeo is trying to comfort her. Satan, get thee behind me.
I feel like coming open. No, I won't. Who am I to betray a trust, no matter
how lonely it seems.
Home again and I slipped unnoticed to the floor. It sure is a long night.
Who was it said, "Silence is goldenn? I'd change it "depressing".
Well, I'm in use again, but I can not stand so much and-well, I slipped
and am here on the sidewalk. This little girl that just picked me up surely
admires me. Will she never stop clasping and unclasping me to see if I work?
Curiosity, thy name is woman. Now she is home and big sister, being in a
hurry, decides to take me. So she is Mrs. Van Blank's personal maid. I'm
on the up-grade.
Well, here for over two months. The same old thing every day but
according to my latest horoscope this is a lucky day. I-Iurrah! Madam wants
a safety pin quick. It seems to be the Twiller's tea and that silly button that
caused the rise. I'll be in the "Blue Book" yet.

"The Land Where Lost Things Go"
Alice couldn't account for the fact that she, of all people, was to take
a wonderful trip around the world. This, however, was the case, and for
some time she had been reviewing with interest many lands and cities she had
heard of in her history studies.
Suddenly she found herself in a strange village. The unusual aspect of
the place was vaguely familiar but Alice knew she had never heard of it in
a history book.
As she drew near to the center of the village. the declining sun cast a
golden light on all the buildings: and on a large sign, Alice read-"This is
the Land of All Lost Things".
This, surely, was the most interesting land she had yet visited and all other
famous places faded from her mind as she wandered eagerly through the streets.
At length she came to a small brown house which was very much the
shape of the pocketbook she had lost some time before. She opened the door,
which worked by pulling up a zipper, and entered this queer house. Her
tan handkerchief was very successfully being used as a carpet and all her little
knick-knacks had set themselves up as furniture.
She left this house and walked on until she suddenly came upon a queer
looking shop. She recognized it, after much bewilderment, as a ring she had
lost a long time before. It was still in the form of the ring and made a very
attractive and artistic advertisement for the jewelry shop for which it was
She was just recovering from her surprise at seeing the curious sight,
when a small roadster appeared in the street near her.
It was very much the same shape and color as the top of her fountain
pen. It was grandly fitted out with wheels and a motor.
Alice was just about to enter this "pen" roadster and ride around the
village, when all the buildings seemed to totter. She started to scream and
to try to find her way out of this land. However, every road led back to the
center of the village. She became so confused that she even imagined that
she had somehow became lost and would have to stay in that village forever.
She felt so sorry for herself that she started to cry very loudly. H
Suddenly she heard the voice of her mother "thundering" in her ear,
"For goodness sake, Alice, wake up! I've been shaking you for ten minutes
and all you've done is cry! It's twenty minutes past eight and you'll be late
Alice opened her eyes in alarm at hearing the time. She jumped from
her bed and soon forgot her adventures in "The Land Where Lost Things Go."
