The picturesque, historical island of Mack-
inac, Michigan, was the birthplace of Wil-
liam I. Bogan, October 26, 1870. His child-
hood was thus spent in scenes of unusual
natural beauty, in woods of lofty pines and
verdant spruce cmd balsam: on shores that
gave wide vistas of the blue and sparkling
waters of the straits. His intense love of
boats and sailing grew from watching the
changing pictures on this great waterway.
Often from his office window in recent days
he glanced out at a passing boat in the Chi-
cago River as a means of satisfying his long-
ing for a view of life on the water. His rare
imagination displayed so often in his writ-
ing, in his speech and in his conversations
probably had its source in the effect of his
beauty-steeped childhood. Certainly the
freedom and ioy of life in the woods and
on the lake impelled him in his efforts for
wholesome recreation for the children of
Mr. Bogan's first experience as teacher
and subsequently as principal was in the
elementary and high schools of northwest-
ern Michigan. His first teaching position in
Chicago was at the Washington elementary
school. Later he became principal there of
the day and evening school and his success
in this school as a leader in progressive ele-
mentary education and in social work at
night with groups of foreign bom gained for
him a reputation second only to his later
renown as principal of the Lane. The Lane
was an outgrowth of the old South Division
and Hoyne high schools and was opened
under Mr. Bogan's principalship in 1908.
Under his planning and administration it
became the leadirig technical school ofthe
country and 'was known throughout the
world. It opened with a membership of
eighty-one and when Mr. Bogan left it at the
invitation of Superintendent McAndrews in
1924 to become assistant-superintendent in
charge of high schoolsf the number of stu-
dents had reached almostgfive thousand. In
1928 Mr. Bogan was elected to the superin-
tendency of the Chicago Public Schools and
in 1932 was re-elected to that office. While
he was assistant superintendent, he
launched the Iunior High Schools, perhaps
the most brilliant and successful innovation
in the history of the Chicago schools: he was
the founder of the community councils in
which the high school student- is given actu-
al experience in citizenship achievement:
he stimulated and encouraged music- in the
schools with such success that Hollis Daun
of the University of New York, adiudicator
in the last high school choral competition,
said that under Superintendent Bogan's guid-
ance the music of the city schools led that
of the country: he said, "You are fortunate
in having a superintendent who is also a
musician": he established experimental
schools in elementary education: he planned
the Montefiore and Mosley Schools with a
differentiated program to meet the individual
differences of the truant child: he established
a ,health program that should be far-reach-
ing in its beneficient results: he is the author
of a well-conceived plan for personnel work:
he planned and established the three new
Iunior Colleges and had a further dream for
a large four-year municipal college: he
planned the pre-vocational courses for the
boy whose needs were not satisfied in the
elementary school: he organized classes for
apprentices: he formed an advisory citizens
council composed of the leading representa-
tives of civic organizations, of professions,
of social workers, of industrialists, and of
educators whose help he inlisted in com-
munity problems affecting the schools: he
founded the Education Club, made up of ed-
ucators from the nearby universities and
communities so that there might be an inter-
change of ideas with Chicago educators and
with teachers in other fields: he planned and
realized that great institution, the new Lane.
His last official act was most fittingly the de-
livery of the graduation address to the Lane
class on the evening of Ianuary thirtieth. He
went from the school to the hospital. He was
a graduate of the University of Chicago: he
had completed at Armour Institute the stand-
ard technical course in addition to several
courses in electricity: he studied for years at
the Chicago Conservatory of Music. He was
co-author with Threidt and Mead :of Voca-
tional Education in Chicago: he was organ-
izer and first president of the Vocational
Association of the Middle West: President of
the National Society for Vocational Educa-
tion: President of the Chicago Division of the
Illinois State Teacher's Association for two
terms: lecturer during summer of 1926 at the
State University, Berkeley, California. He
was particularly interested in the develop-
ment of courses in Character Building and
Moral Instruction, believing in preventive
measures at the source. He constantly strove
to enrich and enlarge educational oppor-
tunity for the youth of Chicago.

"Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player
T H E M E That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then ns heard no more.
With these oft-quoted words ot Shakes-
peare as a guide let us consider the theme
of this semester's Courier, the theatre. This
theme was chosen because in our opinion, it
symbolizes our school lite here at Fenger bet-
ter than any other topic and shows Fenger
as a stage upon which we all have' ascend-
ed with a determination to win a place in the
front ranks as actors. Some have succeeded,
others tailed but to those who failed the first
time, there is always given a second, third or
even a fourth chance again to capture lead-
ing roles in the great play ot life at Fenger.
Desiring to picture these roles to the best
of their ability, the An sniff hes. with well-
chosen designs, illustrated each section of
our Courier. In the opening of our book the
Ex Libris page, showing an announcer pro-
claiming what is to follow: the opera singer,
visualized on the Senior page, significant of
the superior talent of our school: the first
nighters on the Branch page: and the trapeze
artists and ballet dancers depicted on the
athletic page all unquestionably represent
:mg J Vx
X A 'mfs
school life By poems and articles also have
we tried to tell of each and every action in
the interesting and fascinating scenes th '
are unfolded before our eyes as daily we'
trace our various paths through Fenger
.xl lofty portals. The 4A Class poem and the
4A History as well as the other writings and
E . poems that are scattered throughout
pages of our book all represent our great
stage of life here at Fenger.
Knowing that he had successfully played
l X his part in the great drama of life, we have
,Q dedicated this book to the late Superintend-
ent of Schools. William Ioseph Bogan. He
was constant in his desire to further the op- ,art
portunity of the youth of Chicago: he has M 24 Af

g 4A CLASS HISTORY
As my friend and I hurry down the center
aisle of the "Little Theatre of Happy Memories,"
we gain our seats just in time for the first scene
of the play, "Four Years Within the Gates of
Fenger City." How quiet the audience has be-
come, the lights are dimming, the curtain is ris-
ing as the screens part. Hush.
The stage is crowded with young people who
appear shy and bewildered as they stand before
a huge building, on the door of which is in-
scribed Christian Fenger High School. Virginia
Ver Valin and Isabella Galbraith wear white
pique dresses that reach just above their knees.
Short dresses, striped shirts, white stockings, and
an armful of books are the noticeable parts in
this setting. So, thus the grammar school gradu-
ates enter Fenger. Audrey Lind, Vita Faniz52
Charles Stone, and Andy Dubransky line up along
a wall with their programs, hoping to get into
all their classes. Upon receiving their eligibility
tickets, they are seated and the semester begins.
The stage appears in a regular "hub-bub" with
the students dashing to and fro, singing, tossing
volley balls, and rushing along with lunch pack-
ages under their arms. In the midst of all this,
the curtain drops.
"Come, Ellen, let us go out i-nto the lobby
as I have noticed many of the celebrities do-
ing. There is Dorothy Croulet, who has just
obtainedan art scholarship, and Anna Marie
Lupien, to whom the D.A.R. honors were award-
edf' "Oh, yes, Millicent, I remember reading of
it in the Fenger News." "Standing near the
white pillar is Michael Kunz conversing with
Raymond Krueger, and Fred Selden, former mem-
bers of the school's annual staff." 'lWhy, look,
Millicent, there's Pauline Rudnick. Remember
how many times she danced at our school affairs?"
"Yes, Ellen, but the curtain is due to go up and
we had better get back to our seatsf'
The scene is in a room occupied by very studi-
ous pupils. It is quiet and all study intently.
Suddenly into the room troop the Curtisites led
by Chester Derrico, their mayor, and Catherine
Napoli,.their clerk. After these, many young-
sters come from Burnside with William Moran
'carrying awater bucket. The green and red
"stit'kE!'U, reads Fenger's Football Team, '35.
Trailingfiia at the 'end come Theresa Gustas and
Severino"Davia of Mount.Vernon, noisily dragging
their easefs behind them.. Eugene Tuech, Minnie
Klaris, Christineiwojcik, and Marvin Flora vol-
unteer their services 'as room presidents. Jane
Jenkinson, Martha Ashcroft, and Mildred Stern
step forward and render us a song. With their
voices slowly dying in the air, the curtain quietly
falls ending Act. 2.
"It's grand, Millicent! And did you notice
how quickly they made new friends. I wonder
what they will do next." "We'll soon Hnd out,
as the curtain is rising for Act 3."
The stage is transformed into a football field.
On the left end stands Sam Gadlin, while on the
right, Robert Yampolsky, who is holding the ball
for Fred Greco's kick. Hoping for a perfect one,
Ann Butkus and Genevieve Kubilis holler from
the bleachers, "We want a touchdown," and
Mario Zanello takes the ball over. Although the
whole crowd files off the field, the stage is not
bare. The scenery shifts and all the lights go
out. A little spark begins to flicker in the dark-
ness. It grows larger and larger until the whole
stage is brightened by its glow. The light is a
torch carried by John Lisak, who represents the
National Honor Society. Those 3A's behind him
are Ruth Barron, Josephine Pochron, Joh-n Kra-
sula, Mary Sosety, and Harold von Horn. While
Alberta Marianelli and Ruth Barron of the Quill
and Scroll read copy, Virginia Fallon, Josephine
Pochron, and Correll Julian look over the possible
membdrs for. the coming semester. Then as the
band strikes' Iup, -Dorothy Macfarlane, Robert
Nylen, Esther Wefald, and Robert Helge enter
first. Following are Marion Gordon, Ruthelaine
Tharp, Martin Schmidt and Eugene Tuech. With
all these headed across the stage the others are
crowded off. The tones fill the air long after
the stage is left empty, and the curtain majesti-
"Millicent, this play has aroused my interest
to the point where I must know more about the
characters involvedf' "Here is your program,
why not consult it." "What lovely programs! On
the cover is printed 'Courier'g on the iriselq is
written Lillian Krauyalis and William Peters as
editors-in-chief of the booklet with Michael
Kunz, associate editor. Oh sg according to the
program, 'Millicent Wyrzykowski and Ellen Van
Etten, Red Cross representatives, will, upon grad-
uation, receive permanent membership into the
Auxiliary Counsel of the Chapterf U "Yes, and
it also reads that the class officers will be Harold
von Horn, Phyllis Dahlgren, Dorothy Wckley
and Doris Greenef' "Hush, Millicent, the cur-
tain is going up. Shh!"
The orchestra softly plays, the strains float
through the house, and girls in flowing organdies,
with bououets, gracefully -ascend the platform and
are seated upon a throne with the Queen of
the May. The screens swish shut and imme-
diately swish open again. The queen and her
attendants are gone, but the orchestra continues
to play. This time it is a march. All the young
people return, but without books, short pique
dresses, or water buckets. This time they are
dressed uniformly in gray caps and gowns. Each
walks across the platform to receive the diploma
and then retires in the background. After the
last one receives his, they all step forward. The
whole stage raises its voice to sing the finale,
the class song.
"Having seen this drama, I know we shall
never forget it." "Well, Ellen, it has shown me
how well the four years were spent."

GARDEN OF JEWELS
There's beauty in a garden,
A real nice old fashioned one,
Where flowers are jewels when
They are brightened by the sun.
The ruby, red roses blow,
The sapphire, blue bells lean,
The amethyst, pansies grow
With leaves of emerald green.
The pearl, white lilies are set
With diamonds made from the dew.
The gold that thebuttercups get
Comes from sunshine, smiling through.
Then moonlight on the garden fell,
And fairies danced in a ring,
And elves pranced in the dell,
And to me songs did sing.
Then and there came a moonbeam,
That lighted the flower's face.
The lawn was a carpet of green
Fringed by some old French lace.
The moon sank below the wall
And shut out all the light.
Standing were the trees so tall
Like sentries in the onyx night.
Guarding the garden they stood
From all things evil and bad.
Leaving in only the good,
Welcoming only the glad.
Year after year it will stay,
Loving hands and tender care
t Making it lovelier every day
Making it keep, forever there.
MILDRED LIONBERG, 4A
Hon. Men.-Sr. Poetry Courier Lit. Cont.
Why did Caesar conquer Gaul?
Why did Rome have to fall?
Prob,bly just to make us labor,
Boy-They didn't do me a favor.
ROBERT PRYSTALSKI, 4A.
WHAT SPELLS SPRING?
The Singing birds,
Happy that the sun shines warm again,
The Plow of the whistling farmer,
Breaking the black, soft sod for grain,
The Road by the rolling meadow,
Bordered with blooming flowers,
The Isolated workroom,
In the woods we spend the hours,
The Notes of a prima donna
Singing of flow'rs and rain,
The Game of the wild forest,
Runs free through the woodland again.

JACK-IN-BOX AND THE CHINA DOLL
Little China Dollie
Turned her big blue eyes away,
Her cheeks were pink,
As pink as they could be, -
For Jack-in-Box was looking
And he gazed so longingly
At her pink and white complexion,
And her saucy little nose,
Her dainty little fingers,
And her gaily colored clothes.
Her little heart beat faster,
She tried to look serene,
But little did it matter
For her blushes could be seen.
Seems to rne,', said Pink Rabbit
Looking down upon the pair,
They would make a lovely couple!"
"How I wish my limbs were supple",
"I would hop down and make them
Take the fatal step right theref,
I heard you,', said the Jack-in-Box,
"And I think it's good advice,
So I'm going to pop the question,
Though I feel as cold as ice.',
Of course you know the ending:
How the two were quickly wed,
And now they live contentedly
On the shelf beside the bed.
SHIRLEY BORCHARDT, 4A.
WHEN THE DIAL SLIPPED
The radio was very old. One day :a part on the
dial wore out, and I began to get three or four
stations at one time. As the piece could not be
fixed or replaced, we had to use it as it was. One
night, I turned it on and here is a sample of what
"Ladies and gentlemen, we now have the pleas-
ure of listening to the campaign manager of
"Ozzie, oh, Ozzie, bring me my little Duck,
Gago. No, Gago, for all the good people."
"Mary, darling, I want to ask you a very im-
"Oh, Jerry, what is it"
Give me liberty or give me death-"
Bury me not on the lone prairie-"
"with you by my side, I could go on forever-I
"My candidate has character, and what's more,
the ability to lead-3'
With the beautiful lady in bluef'
But, Jerry, what would we live on-love?"
"Joe, get that duck out of here, and you get
out with ir?
"Oh, Jerry, I'm hungry, let's go out and eat."
"And this, folks, is the main plank in the plat-
form of my candidate."

A strange incense enchants us and leads us on
to a heavily draped room with thickly piled car-
pets. A haunting feeling tells us we are in his
presence, and we are, for at one end of the long
room behind a small table sits the greatest of all
fortune tellers, Father Time. He bids us sit down
with a sweeping gesture of his hand. He places
a large crystal on the table and the lights o out.
The room turns as black as the ebony tage, and
the only illumination is the blue-green light
which is emitted from the crystal. As. a feeling
of drowsiness falls upon us we watch him, as
we do, we see visions in the ball, visions of what
is to come, visions of tomorrow-Look-
It sems like the election of mayor at Fenger.
There's Mr. Schacht chatting with the former
mayor, off to one side sit the candidates for mayor
all very nervous and anything but confident. I
know him, it's ........ . But before we get a
good look the scene changes-
Groups of pupils are standing about talking and
acting very dignified. No one could mistake
them, they are the newly appointed 4A com-
Scene .after scene, vision after vision, pass in
review as we see ourselves in clubs, committees,
and other offices. A privileged few are in the
Courier staff and the News staff.
Next comes a scene in which we all sway to
an orchestra,s rhythm. Could you mistake this
scene? It is the long awaited prom. But before
we can Hnd each other in the throng we are
whisked into another scene.
This one finds us in an old familiar haunt, Hill
Auditorium. There we sit on the stage in gray
robes and capsg instantly we know it's graduation,
the event we lie about by saying we wish it would
hurry along and which we secretly hope would
never arrive. But the vision fades into the
crystal and the crystal fades into the room and
the room disappears and we find ourselves with
still another semester to go, so let's make it the
biggest, best, richest, and fullest we have ever
had. We can do it if we try-.
-EDWARD GEDGOUD, 4B
WE 4B'S CLASP YOUR HANDS
Across the spans of life's bridge
We clasp the hand of the 4A,s tight,
Say to them, dare! do! accomplish! -
We are here to keep the torch burning bright!
The topmost rung has been scaled,
The last farewell tune broken at end-
While we remain to dream your dreams anew,
Your honor, Fenger's, and ours to defend.
And we the 4B's promise ne'er to break faith
With those who go ahead and very far
But throw the torch backwards -as 'twas given to
Yet burning brighter, like some heavenly star.
EDITH DARVIN, 4B.
Across the dimpled water comes
A softly-wafted breeze,
That with all its gentle freshness,
Breathes a tang of distant seas,
It is tugging at the anchor
With a steady little pull,
And we know We will be sailing
When the billowed sails are full.
We will ship our four-year cargo
It is lying in the hold-
There is silver-tinted knowledge,
And friends instead of gold,
Now with last commanding orders
You can hear the Captain shout,
For tomorrow we'll be sailing
When the white-capped tide goes out.

A MYSTERY AT DAWN
I heard a most curious little sound
This morning just at rosy dawn,
A uswishy-wishy" little sound
That ran across the lawn.
Like skipping little footsteps light,
'At play upon the diamond grass,
Or small blue wings of happiness
That flutter as they pass.
It might have been some little birds
Out hunting for a lovely tune,
So as to join the chorus fine
That would be starting very soon.
It might have been a summer breeze
At play right there among the trees,
And making funny, tiny sounds
To please the little, baby leaves.
It could have been the rosebuds too,
Who were awaking in their beds,
And slipping petal-dresses on,
Above their waving sleepy heads.
I think it was just the fairy folks,
Dearest, tidiest, tiny things,
Leaving off their dancing, graceful, gay,
And folding up their gauzy, silver wings.
They must have seen the golden sunbeams come,
Or heard the cheerful peep of day,
So then of course they had to run
And quickly hide themselves away.
So that's what made the curious sound
That ran across the dewy lawn,
Like "silver wingsj' or Mercury's feet,
This lovely morning at rosy dawn.
ELLEN JENSEN, 4B
1st prize-Sr. Poetry Courier Lit. Cont.
My, isn't it dreadful to awaken on a beautiful,
sunshiny, warm day, with the birds singing, and
all the children shouting as they play, without our
having any inclination to jump up and join the
happy folks? One would think with the flowers
beginning to show their pretty faces, the leaves
turning green, and many of the other things
which accompany the coming of spring, we all
would feel like getting up and going all about
the town seeing Nature's new spring clothing.
Instead, the effort to walk just to our nearest
friend's house tires us, much to the disgust of
mothers -and fathers. For some reason the beauty
of spring doesn't seem to attract us. It must be
lovely to feel the urge to wander into the parks
and see Nature awakening. Think of the joy of
moving a stone to see a lovely, small flower, pro-
tected and hidden away from us. But let's leave
that to the ambitious ones afnd settle down to read
a very entertaining book. It won't tire us nearly

Lately I've been afraid to ask my friends into
our home for fear they'll think we're trying to
produce another Ford Field or Municipal Airport!
Model aeroplanes repose everywhere: two or three
are attached to the top of every picture on the
walls, five or six recline on the chiffonier and
dresser in every bedroom, four or five spread their
sheltering wings over the shelves of the medicine
chest. Really, the whole house is cluttered up by
these marvelous creations constructed by the
youngest tyrant of the family!
And every atom of space not taken up by
model aeroplanes is littered with notices of Junior
Birdmen contests, meetings, and other inconse-
So, while Johnny sits in his room, balancing his
accounts, trying to figure out a way of obtaining
still another aeroplane, the rest of us sit in the
kitchen, wondering which store house to send our
furniture to if he does construct another one.
CLARE RAATJES, 4B,
1st Prize-Sr. Prose-Courier Lit. Cont.
When Grandma has a mind to pray,
She counts her beads at end of day,
And down the furrows made by years
There trickle many, many tears.
When Dad decides that he's to pray,
He does it in a different way.
He is a man, he musn,t cry,
So his prayer goes to heaven, a sigh.
When my little sister says her prayer
She clasps her hands up in the air
And says her verses by the bed
And scarcely knows what she has said.
But when I make myself to pray
I do it in a different way
I like to think He's right beside
To comfort me deep inside.

CHANGING THE TIME
Today we changed to E.S.T.
And I shall tell in rhyme,
What it all means to you and me-
This Eastern Standard Time.
We used to rise from bed each morn,
Long after break of day,
And early risers we would scorn,
Whether for work or play.
But, now, alas, when we arise,
The morn is dark and chill,
The stars still glisten in the skies,
And all the world is still.
We go our dark and gloomy way,
To work, or play, or school.
For, just to make a longer day,
They've made a new time rule.
Now you may like this longer day,
And like to leave your bed
When eastern skies are dark and gray,
And you're about half dead.
But as for me-I guess I'm set,
Perhaps I'm getting old,
I'd rather stay in bed-you bet,
Than rise in dark and cold.
Joyous spring is here at last,
All the winter's signs have passed,
Blades of grass are peeping out,
Children are playing all about,
Birds are flying from tree to tree,
Another sign of spring, you see.
The sky is blue and very bright,
The clouds are billowy and light,
The trees have donned new leaves of green,
The sun is shining, a king supreme.
He'll make a daily appearance now,
Itls spring, and he has taken his bow.
-BERNICE PANozzo, 3A
Hon. Men.-Sr. Poetry Courier Lit. Cont.
Once more spring enters our lives, the ground
thaws out, the grass gets greener, leaves begin to
bud on the trees, and people start to plant flowers,
the birds return along with the butterfly and all
the rest of our small animal friends, the days get
longer and the mornings are inspiring, the air is so
cool and refreshing. People buy new clothes, and
some new automobiles, summer homes are opened,
and the spring rains wash all streets and highways,
bringing new life to everything.

3A REVELATION S
With the aid of a questionnaire your editors
were able to find out some interesting facts about
our upper juniors and their hopes. When We
asked them "What one thing more than anything
else, have you always wished to do?', most of
the replies concerned their futures and ideals for
Iolan Ablaaie has ambitions to be another Bur-
ton Holmes, for his wishes are to travel in the
United States and then around the world, while
john Farr feels that Europe would fulfil his
dreams. Palm trees and soothing breezes occu-
pied Edgar Schrrzidfs mind this winter as he
longed to be in Florida, but Walter Mileolafis con-
siders Alaska the ideal place for a vacation lex-
cept during our sub-zero daysj and wants to
visit it some day. Vesta McClellan's poised cool-
ness would be quite appropriate in the warm
climate where she desires to live for the rest of
Sylvia Sbafner is inspired by Ina Hutton for
she wants to become famous by conducting a
girl's orchestra. Eleanor Gaynorls ambition is to
meet a famous radio star and be on his program.
She has competition, for Victor Piebler says he
hopes to sing on a commercial radio broadcast,
and not an amateur one either! Unknown quali-

ties may lie in the voice of Barbara CEY01!SlQl for
she yearns to be a great singer like Lily Pons
and enjoy the prestige of a Metropolitan star.
Culture lies in Helen NOYll11,S musical taste for
she looks forward to holding an audience with
her violin. Marguerite Zamoloslzy desires to bring
comfort to helpless persons with her services as
a nurse, while Frances Mielliiiix wants to become
a doctor and have her own hospital. To study at
West Point is LeRoy Winans,s idea of serving
his country. Like the great Picard, Iaelz. Nyberg
wants to achieve scientific fame as stratospheric
explorer, and Robert Douglas longs to pilot his
own airplane some day and discover new aerial
routes. Elizabeth Segers possesses a strong admira-
tion for Amelia Earhart, for she, too, wants to
become an aviatrix. Being a commercial artist
and owning a studio is Rena Artuso's idea of a
perfect career. Bianca Zordaii, however, has dra-
matic ambitions. She pictures herself as the star
of an outstanding stage play in an American
theatre. Phyllis Parker has her hopes pointed
towards the literary profession. "I've always

his abilities. His one desire is to be a second
Now-about the 'iMoney Business." Those of
us who have trouble obtaining any, will learn
a thing or two from the following answers to,
"What was the first occasion you had of earning
money, and how did you use it?"
Adelle Sarnulionis worked in a bakery and
bought school supplies with the money she earned.
Adelle still can tell us of the good cream puffs
she ate. Because she pinned collars in a collar
shop, Sophie Gedinin was able to save enough
money for clothes, and still have some left over
to give to her mother.
That bicycle you see Robert Wilhelmsen riding
around was bought with the money he earned
selling papers, while Michael Lazukais news-selling
bought him a piano accordion. Another boy who
used some good salesmanship is Eugene Ton, who
sold enough magazines to buy himself a baseball
bat, every boy's desired possession.
Through his work as a golf caddy joseph Pach-
olilc gained enough dollars to pay his tuition for
summer school. Another one that enjoys caddy-
ing is Sigmund Orel, but he didn't buy anything
except a trip to Techney, Illinois, where he spent
a part of his summer. Most of the clothes you
see Edward Lislzuslei wearing are his own pur-
chases. He has caddied, also, for several years
and saves his earnings for clothes and necessities.
Adrianna Cook was nursemaid for a friend's
children and saved enough money to buy her
Christmas presents. By completing household
duties for a friend in Michigan Ursula Seibar
earned some money to buy 'a long-desired bicycle.
Ruth DeYoung always longed for a pair of ice
skates. So the money she received for taking care
of a neighbor's baby satisfied her wish. Can you
imagine june Thomason singing nursery rhymes?
Well, that was the first work she ever did, and
the five dollars she earned is still in the bank.
A girl's wardrobe has always been an expensive
problem, but Barbara Michalsky solved it by man-
icuring Hngernails and giving facials in a beauty
parlor. Bernice Kulig needed money for a Fenger
Courier, so she worked for it, and to this day
has never regretted it. Robert Srnitter had an
earnest desire for a camping trip. He washed
friends' cars and gained sufficient funds for it.
S0 you see, there's no end to ways of earning
money. Have any of these various answers given
you any ideas?
Many opinions, both for and against, have been
expressed by everyone about the Daylight Sav-
ing Time. When the students of the 3A class
voiced their own thoughts on this subject several
interesting answers were given.
Eloyse Drizfyer says "It's the most confusing
time of the year, I think, especially concerning
Page 3 4
radio programs." Dodge Borsian agrees with her
as he replies, "I don't like the forced change of
radio programs." A constant feeling that the
clock is wrong causes Mary Palagi to exclaim, "I
don't like it!,' jeanette Gonstra and Alice Ustry-
ski dislike to wake up when the morning hours
are still dark, as is the case until summer arrives.
But Carlton Pearson and Lillian Orasites feel that
there is no better system for a long day with lots
of time for play. Douglas Weaver favors it be-
cause he appreciated the extra hour in the eve-
ning more than in the morning. It is a good
point. Olga Alrnasy argues with him that it's
terrible in winter, especially for students and
workers who will travel back and forth in the
dark. Loretta Kumrnerer sure does love to sleep!
She told us, "I still havenit made up my lost
hour's sleepf' Olga Lesion and Lillian Albert
say, "It's perfect in the summer time, but it
canit be more horrid in the winterf, Contrarily,
Robert Wintercorn enthusiastically exclaims "It's
keen!" Why does Elaine Moehring like it? Be-
cause it always fills her spirit with the "romantic
summer timef' While most people believe this
time saves electricity, Muriel Boomleer has dis-
covered that electricity costs are increased in her

The most beautiful flying of all is sunset flying.
The setting sun makes the ground glow so that
we appear to be flying under a great canopy. The
air is still and calm. We appear to be hanging in
space, as if suspended on some great invisible
thread. There is no motion, and little sound eX-
cept a high pitched whistling, like that of a pea-
nut vendor's wagon. The whistling is caused by a
gale outside the cabin, for we are hurtling
through the air at more than three miles a minute.
Soon darkness falls and night, black, inky night,
folds around us. Tiny pin points of light flicker
on the ground, they are lights of little towns
sparkling below us like clusters of diamonds. Far
beyond, we can see another and another, some-
times as many as five or six at once. They are part
of the unbroken chain stretching from ocean to

CHICAGO AT NIGHT
Once more Mother Night broods over the city
and wraps it in a mantle of soothing sleep. The
street lamps gleam, trying to Outshine the twin-
kling diamonds on the black velvet case of the
heavens. The shining lights from the windows of
the skyscraper form the ladder on which Mother
Night descends to the earth. All troubles melt
away as the great metropolis sleeps. The ever-
watchful night draws closer its blanket, and all is
PHYLLIS PARKES, 3A,
Hon. Men.-Sr. Prose-Courier Lit. Cont.
Natureis works are numerous-
Many of them humorous-
And so I will commence to tell
A few that you may know quite well.
Some cliffs are curled
Like flags unfurled,
And from the tops can be seen
The dangerous and deep ravines.
The lakes shine from the golden sun
While bathers go on with their joyous fun.
And when waves come toward them merrily,
They dive into them with shouts of glee.
Trees stand in their elegant height
As fighters stand when ready to fight.
When it rains, they serve as good umbrellas
To the forests' little fellows.
Now donit pass up these wonderful things,
And all the beauties that nature brings,
For later you may regret
You didn't take things while easy to get.

A WORTHWHILE CODE
"Gee, I had a tough day," said Bill throwing down
Seems like I ain't gonna pass this semester from
the way it looks.
On subjects like science and algebra I guess I'm
And the worst of it is, the more I study the
dumber I get."
"Well," said a gray haired sailor, "It was that way
when I was a boy.
All my life I've felt that going to school's no
But I've learned in a harder school that it's easier
to travel life's road,
If every boy at your age will adopt this little
"Never view life as a game Where some must win
and some must fail,
But View it as a test in the sea of work where
each his ship must sail,
On deciding the voyage's destiny, don't wait for
others to endorse,
And remember also a sailing ship lands nowhere
without a course.
"Try to foresee all difficulties before you lose
sight of land,
Every ship in the sea meets emergencies, so have
enough supplies on hand.
And if you can't reach your destiny, don't dis-
credit yourself as a man.
But set your ship full speed ahead and do the
best you can."

THE FAIRY RING
The little pond near the edge of the Woods lies
smiling in the sun, while the beautiful, gilded fish
lazily glide beneath its silvery surface. The banks
are carpeted with soft, cool moss, and a dainty
flower here and there nods her yellow bonnet to a
beckoning blade of grass. The tall, strong Oak
keeps vigil over all like an untiring sentinel while
his gentle companion, the weeping willow, hovers
over her little corner of the lagoon and lets her
shadows mingle with those of the delicate pond
lilies. In the evening the fireflies flit to and fro
while the valiant chorus of bullfrogs gives its
nightly concert. The moonbeams float to earth
to softly kiss the sleeping flowers. Where but on
the velvety edge of this silver dream-pond would
the fairies choose to hold their midnight ball?
But in the morning the pond again lazily smiles
in the sunshine, and the little breezes come to
exchange gossip with the leaves of the oak while
the little tree in the corner weeps with the very
joy and beauty of the life she knows.

AN IMPERFECT DAY
After a hard morning's work trying to make
out a program, I prepare for the rush to classes.
I tighten my shoe strings, roll up my trouser cuffs,
I pull up my belt a few notches, and roll up my
sleeves. As the clock strikes eleven, the bell rings.
With my Fenger News in one hand, I step gal-
lantly in the mad rush for classes. I'm caught
and whisked away like a feather in the breeze.
Finally I reach my first class. There's room for
only one more student to enroll. But seeing that
there are two students left fthe other a pretty
girlj I am left out. I get into my second class,
but am immediately given my ticket back. Upon
asking the reason why, I am informed that it is an
Pugc 3 6
X class and reminded that I am a Z student. On
my way out I hear some "wise guy" whistle "Out
in the Cold Againf, With a shrug of my shoul-
ders I hurry in the direction of my third class.
On the Way I am interrupted by a freshie asking
to be directed to the elevator. I tell him to go
straight ahead till he comes to a window and
then jump out. So on and off through the day I
get in classes and get ukickedi' out of others. But
I always make a comeback and usually get into
the classes in the end anyway. The first day of
the semester is always a headache to me.

LIFE SHOULD BE SUCH
Crash! And there on the floor lay a hundred
pieces of different sizes and shapes which but a
second before had been mother's three plates from
her best dinner set. My face turned pale, and my
eyes filled with tears as I slowly gathered up what
was once a Valued Christmas gift.
After cleaning up the mess I burdened my brain
by planning various excuses. What would be the
outcome of this? Suddenly I heard footsteps com-
ing, and my heart feat faster and faster. In walked
Mother with a broad smile and merry twinkle in
her eyes which made me feel much relieved. Of
course, my unusual appearance made her ask,
"What's wrong?', It took a mighty long time be-
fore I told the story. Then Mother let out a big
hearty laugh and said, "Why, I thought some-
thing terrible had happened. If you feel so bad
over the loss of three plates, how should the people
feel Whose loss cannot be expressed in words So
keep this in mind. When something goes wrong,
be merryg and you'll forget it quickerf'
No one can make life merrier than a mother
who understands that accidents happen and laughs
it off because she realizes that it isn't the worst

V 3B COLOQUIES
Tom Thumb has his drum, Peter has his pic-
colo, Uba has his tuba, Rubinoff has his violin
Uack Benny has one, alsoj and our Fengerites
have their favorite instruments, too.
Eileen Vaughn would like to play the saxophone
because she likes the "buttons" on it, while the
low, moaning tone of the sax is what attracts
Robert Knrnnzelehne, Helen VC7ator, and Florence
Charlotte Thompson has a peculiar reason for
wanting to play the violin. She likes it because
it "squeaks." Violet Anderson has always wanted
to play the violin so that she could play, "When a
Gypsy Makes His Violin Cryf,
A harp is the instrument Howard Schmidt
would like to play, because he says, "Then, 1,11
feel at home when I die.',
Catherine Carleton would choose to play an
accordion because she likes the tone of it. The
reason joseph Karalins would like to play the
accordion is because it's a one-man band.
Page 3 8
jeanette Dylee prefers piano to all other instru-
ments for a practical reason. She explains that no
one could borrow it. Lucille Tate would like to
play piano, because she wouldn't have to carry it
The trumpet is an instrument that is a great
favorite with Charles Fletcher, Le Roi Stadt and
Elspeth Smith, because the "music goes down and
'roundf' Howard Boland, however, would like
any instrument that the music doesn't go 'round.
To see America first would be an ideal accom-
plishment in the minds of the 3B's. Picture your-
self going to Broadway with Marcella Hoffman,
touring Purdue University, accompanying Lois
Eddy. Edward Master would like to go to Hol-
lywood to visit the movie stars. "just give me
the wide open spaces in Colorado!" says Harry
Stomp, Charles Knhnhofer would certainly appre-
ciate a trip to Nevada in a huge truck. Just a
plain ole, fashioned swimming hole on a hot sum-
mer day would satisfy Mildred Borger. "Boy,

it would be pleasant to go to Alaska i-n the sum-
mer time, Harold Vettericle tells us. Irene Bright
would like a camping trip to North Carolina.
But think of those crawly things at night, Irene,
Ugh!! Eleanor Lengen would like an aeroplane
trip to Miami, Florida, then to Los Angeles, Cali-
fornia, to the Hawaiian Islands, and then strange-
ly, she'd like to come home again. john Dohda
and Felix Patarini hope to go to Catalina with the
Chicago Cubs, while Eugene Talzach says, 'lNoth-
ing doing! I'd rather be with the White Sox at
Pasadena, Californiaf, Ever since Dorothy Erick-
son saw "just Imagine," she's wanted to see Mars.
"A tour of the world with oodles of money to be
able thoroughly to enjoy it!', exclaims Eileen
Hallinan. Orville Maddero-in would like to go to
Heaven and back! We'll be seeing you, Orville.
Vida Parker dreams of a trip to Santa Claus's
Work Shop. "just give me a trip to Honolulu
and enough time to eat all the pineapples I want!"
says johanna Brucer. Mae Saunders would like a
vacation in Bermuda for the winter, to Paris in
the spring, and Sweden in the summer. Did you
forget we have autumn, Mae? Lorraine Quedens-
ley would like to go to Italy to hear the rapturous
music that enthralls her.
And so we leave you to peaceful dreams of va-
cationing minds. Next, we ventured the query
of why automobiles have horns. Very seriously
Betty Peach told us that they were for the same
purpose that one is on a bicycle. Francis Gaal
thinks horns are to wake up those affected by
spring fever. I think weill need six or seven,
Francis. "So as not to run people over,,' says
Florence Hejron. Douglas Majury musically
croons to us, "just a word of warning!" Louise
Heiderna thinks that the poor cats and dogs
wouldn't be run over if we used the horns.
Bodell Christensen proposes that it's to give the
brakes a rest. "Aw, it is just to run the battery
down," Leonard Solfa tells us. Lorraine Philhrick
relates, "Horns are for boys who are too lazy to
ring the door-bell, they are very annoying to the
neighbors." Leo Lauritan just guesses they are to
keep the road clear. Well, that is a different
version anyhow. joseph joniah nonchalantly re-
plies, "So they would have more interesting fea-
Things we do and say throughout the day
grow upon us until we have evolved some habit,
hobby, fad, or amusement from them. Roaming
around among our 3B's we found rather humorous
josephine jonice thinks knitting is a very conve-
nient fad although she- herself does not knit. Bicycle
riding, according to Stella Stakenas, is a very fine
amusement. Bob Darr finds eating spaghetti with
a knife amusing. joseph Pavola thinks the song
"The Music Goes 'Round and ,Roundu is swell
as a popular amusement, but Rollin Young pre-
fers "Wa Hoo." Grace Stark sees much entertain-
ment in her hobby of collecting zippers. "I don't
go in for fads," Mary Van Donle plainly tells us.
We can't seem to visualize any young lady in this
day and age without some fad to cling to. "The
fashion of wearing sweaters backwards, I think is
silly," retorts Shirley Shallcross. While Mary Stamp
thought wearing snow pants to school in cold
weather was "ridiculous," Marvin Kuyper has
the same trouble with young men who just will
wear ties! "Grown girls wearing bows in their
hair-It's too, too ducky," exclaims Edna Truitt.
Lila Maltrnan finds dancing the new fast steps
very amusing. Vallance Watt, Grace Haalesina,
and Loretta Erick find the Amateur Hours very,
very entrancing. Well, you will have to admit
there was a time when they were different. Nick
Mayer is convinced that collecting buttons is very
convenient. Alyce Bergmann and Virginia Hil-
kert think that ear-muffs are almost THE
THING!!! "Kathryn Hepburn curls seem to be
popular with everyone,', relates Gail Derthich. "I

A REAL CHARACTER
You may know the person I am describing or
you may know of someone like him. He may be
your neighbor, friend, or relative.
His name I will not tell you but I will tell
you that he has his own news stand on a corner.
I won't tell you what corner, for then I would
be telling you his name. He is a very likable
gentleman, clad in his queer clothes. He is out
in rain and shine, s-now and cold, but he always
has a kind word or a friendly greeting for every
It is a quaint sight to see him sitting on a
stool in the paper stand he himself made, huddled
together to keep warm or to keep out of the
About the time I go to school every morning,
he is eating his breakfast of coffee and sandwiches
brought to him by his son. He never fails to
say a friendly word. He knows all his customers,
and he is always the friend of a stranger He is
always very considerate of the customers, usually
bringing the paper across the street to them.
He is a very good citizen for when he is not
busy, he shovels the snow from the walks or
opens blocked sewers after a rainstorm. If he
should see a youngster trying to get across the
street, he will guide him across Many a m-other
has thanked him for this kind act. -
He is indeed a real character, and if he should
give up selling papers and leave his stand, a cloud
of darkness would fall upon this corner, where
only sunshine has been. MARIE RYAN, ZA,

2A's IN THE "SPOT LIGHT"
There are always jokes about the "Absent
minded Professor" and of people who do ustupidl'
things, but we have to admit that we have done
some mighty peculiar things ourselves at times.
Ellen Tlaeis once threw a quarter in the waste
basket and put the scrap of paper in her purse.
In his own words Stanley Sereileo says, "The
dumbest thing I ever did was when I didn't buy
a Courier back in '33." The hrst week that
Robert Larsen came to high school he kept walk-
ing down the wrong side of the corridors and
was bumped about a bit. More mistakes of
"Freshies"! Dan Lucas tried to find the elevator
when he first came to Fenger. The first day
Helen Raa'zi1zo'wiz was at the main building, she
spent most of her time looking for the fifth floor
and room 501. Evelyn Buslao must have had a
ufatteningi' meal the day she took a pound of
butter to school instead of her lunch. Wfalter
Stone once threw away a candy bar and tried to
eat the paper. Velela Fleming's mind must have
been very far away the day she poured syrup on
her head and scratched the pancake! Greta Ola-
man locked the back door of her home and then
left a note telling where she put the key. What
happened? Ezzreta Salzer has a new way of say-
ing "Pardon me." She crossed in front of an
important person and said, "Amen.,' Some people
forget the most important things! Nancy Fisher
once mailed an envelope. fShe forgot to put the
letter i'n.j After Betty Archibald got all the way
to Palmer Park to go ice-skating, she found that
she had left her skates at home.
2A'S IN THE SPOTLIGHT-Continued
They say you can judge peopleis personalities
by the type of songs they like. We'll let you
decide whether that,s true or not.
The most popular song on our list, "The Music
Goes ,Round and 'Round," is the favorite of
Harry Zerebniale, Bernice Malachechen, Theodore
Galiej, Helen Kolozie, Grace Boeleeloo, Steve
Czerwonlea, jane Rasin, Alex Varga, Sophie To-
maszun, and a host of other students, too numer-
ous to print. Marjorie Rosenberg thinks the love-
liest song she has ever heard is "If I Should Lose
You." "Life Begins at Sweet Sixteen" is the song
Iris Chard likes, while in contrast Sam Zafras'
favorite is "When I Grow Too Old To Dream."
George Sadanslais is a nice cheerful fellow. He
likes the "Funeral March." We're glad to see that
opera holds some place here. Ted Behrens, favor-
ite song is the aria from t'Aida." Three young
ladies, Hilda Thompson, Margaret Hazerty, Ev-
elyn Starego like the catchy notes of l'It's Been
So Long." The romantic songs hold a large place
in your estimation. Ray Fisher, Mary jett, and
Celia Kleinblossom like "Treasure Island", Helen
Pallaz, and Lillian Walker, "Alone", and "The
Beautiful Lady in Blue" is Marjorie Valleenburg,
Sophie Misinnas, Robert Tanis, Chester Zandstra,
Ada Borgo, and Marion Bareris favorite. Roman
Mion likes the song "If I Had the Wings of an
Angel" because he thinks then he could get to
school on time. The good old song "My Wild
Irish Rose" makes Don Canfield happy when he
hears it. There are songs, and songs, and songs,
but to Mary De Boer there are none like "Star-
dustf' june Eisele tells us that she likes "If I
Had a Million Dollars' for more reasons than
Among your classmates are some sparkling
personalities. They have received compliments
that mean a lot to them, and we have the privi-
lege of revealing some of them.
The highest compliment, that Lena Fendon,
jim Kelly, Catherine Merkousko, and Clayborn
Robinson received, was when they were told how
well they could sing. Among other gifted stu-
dents are Kathryn Rout and Marvin Peterson.
They play the violin, one of the most diilicult
instruments in the orchestra, and to be compli-
mented for playing well should make them very
proud. Frank Honlcoskie thinks the highest com-
pliment he has received was that he didn't have
to wear knickers after he was eight years old.
You have among you a few classmates that re-
semble movie stars. Lillian Kolodzey was told
that she looked a great deal like Claudette Col-
bert. Herbert johnson was told by a certain
teacher that he could almost double for Richard
Cromwell. Dorothy Mann was very highly flat-
tered when she was told that she was like her
mother. Here are a few compliments, short but
sweet, received by the following people: Ellen
Palmer, "Once she starts something, you can be
sure that it will be finishedvg john Karbntowslzi,
"Joh-n has a lot of boxing ability." fHis friends
all call him the new 'White Hope'jg julia Kral,
"Julia, your poem is extremely clever", Richard
Weber and Bernard Gildin received like compli-
ments, "Some day youill be a great actor."
The Question-If you had an automobile col-
lision with Ginger Rogers and it was her fault,
what would you say?
One answer from Walter Schultz and john
Milkintos would show some of the good old
Southern chivalry you hear about, for they would
say, "I beg your pardon, Miss Rogers. It was
my fault, is there anything I can do?,, A differ-
ent attitude was taken by jeanette Fyalleowslzi,
Adolph Romba, Frank Moucet, jacob Loch, and
George Medrano. They would declare, "Pay the
damages, please!" Alma Myronp relates, "I would
probably die of the shock of seeing with whom
I had collided." "I'm glad it happened. I've al-
ways wanted to meet you," Marie Ryan, Doreen
Bomber, Catherine Adams, and Lorraine Renther
would remark. Quoting Renzo Mora, it would be,
"Lady, do you realize what you've done?" Evi-
dently Eleanor Oedzes thinks she could take Gin-
ger Rogers' place fthat's possible, for she sings
and dances, you knowj as she would sue Ginger
Rogers for her job. "By Ginger! Don't snap!!,,
is what witty Beverly Pedizo would chortle. Man-
ford McClanahan doesn't think he'd be able to
speak at all for more reasons than one. "Beauty
isn't everything. Why donit you use your head?"
Dorothy Tiozolz would exclaim.
Everyone is stingy to some extent, and we all
have our pet economies. Through the help of
questionnaires, we found our Fengerites have
some very interesting ones.
Agnes Tobro can not understand how people
can spend hard earned money on spinach. Wil-
liam Hayford saves old fountain pens. Maybe
he remembers what they went through in his
hands. Evelyn Mathieson and Peter Miller also
have exceptionally interesting economies. Evelyn
dislikes throwing away illustrated poems. As a
result she has a large collection. Peter saves
stamps, old and new. Dodging the sales tax is
Harry White's economy. One package of note
book paper is sufficient for Marian Smith for one
school year. She uses as little as possible. Arnold
Wondaal thinks it's a waste of money to get hair-
cuts. He maintains that it's no use, as his hair
grows back on anyhow. Alberta Winters is sav-
ing the thing we find the most diilicult to save!
Money! But she has a real purpose behind it.
Normal School is the purpose. Elinor McVey
saves nickels by going to the shows at 6:25 before
the prices change. Saving time is Beatrice Len-
zen's pet economy. If you're successful, Beatrice,
please show us how.
A TEST IN TYPING
Just for fun I'm going to give you a demon-
stration of the emotions of students taking a
typing test. How we love it!
Nerves are taxed, and there is a tenseness in the
class which will not be subdued until the test is
Margins are set, papers are adjusted and the
race will soon be on. With one finger on the shift
key and others in their proper place they sit to
await the tick of the clock to begin. V
The teacher is standing aside ready to give the
Suddenly the clock ticks. With a rush and a
bang the grand race is on. After a few seconds
there is heard from across the room, a muffled
groan. Oh! Oh! someone has made a mistake.
Well, keep on going, fellow. We all make mis-
takes. The typewriters keep up their noisy clat-
ter. Oh, how everyone wishes that they had just
3 minutes more. The teacher is standing on the
opposite side of the room, and you can imagine
that she smiles an inward smile as she looks on,
but her features are quite stern.
At exactly three minutes after, she calls a halt.
Then starts the breathless job of averaging scores.
Some have fifteen words for a score and others
may have seventeen, but when one has twenty-five
words for an average there are gasps of oh,s and
ah,s heard around the room.
Well, never worry. There are 'plenty other tests
ahead in which you will probably get a better

Since the world began, gossip has been a men-
ace, not only in small country towns, but in
large cities also. Cities are made up of small
communities, and whenever social gatherings are
held, gossip is the prevailing subject. Sewing
circles and the general store are the favorite re-
treats of the scandal lovers in small towns. Topics
of general interest to the town folk, such as new
neighbors, are discussed, criticized, and picked
The subject is kindled with the imaginative
creations of each individual's mind, and burns
brighter if the fuel is of a quality to heighten
interest. The truth is stretched and twisted until
it gains such grotesque form that its outcome
is harmful. It is a pleasant means of passing the
time and seldom is done with malicious intention,
but the harm that results can not always be rec-

Niagara Falls is a very beautiful place during
the summer months. Although the town, Niagara,
is small, it accommodates many hundreds of vis-
itors who gather to watch the falls descend into
the huge gorge.
While I was there I saw the Horse Shoe Fall
break into pieces and drop into the water below,
which broke the outline of the Horse Shoe. An-
other instant I heard a small child ask his mother
to tell the caretaker to turn the water off so he
could see how it looked without the running wa-
ter. I'm just wondering if we all wouldn't like
to see Niagara without the water falling?

THE PLAIN TRUTH
Sfucfy Hall! Is that what this place is called?
A more appropriate name would be "Try to
Study" hall. With pencils, rulers, books, and
what else, falling and dropping all around us, it's
more like a boiler factory. And we are supposed
to study amid all these disturbances. It can't be
done. Then figuring we can't study and might as
well be talking to our neighbors, a heartless
teacher pounces on us and hands us a penalty.
I guess there is just no justice in this cruel world.
If I had my way, which I haven't, I would
have the study halls divided into little rooms
with nice easy chairs, in which we could rest as
well as study.
But when this wish comes true, I will probably
be a gray-haired old woman through for life with

DERIVATION OF WORDS
It is interesting as well as educational to dis-
cover some of the reasons for certain terms, slang
and otherwise, which appear in our language.
I remember having read about the Boxer Re-
bellion in China about 1900. Since then I have
honestly wondered what a boxer really is. Well, a
boxer is a member of a secret society, professedly
for the promotion of sport. The society was one
of the leaders in the uprising against foreigners.
In the United States the phrase "third degree"
usually suggests the merciless beating of a prisoner
to force a confession from him. To the detective
the 'phrase means any trick, idea, subterfuge, or
stunt he may use in an attempt to make the pris-
oner divulge information. It's first appearance
was in 1910, when Major Sylvester, president of
the International Association of Chiefs of Police,
explained that there were three steps in the ar-

A FENGER SOCIAL
I'd be enjoying myself immensely at this social
if it weren't for the fact that I wore my new
shoes, but it's too late to change now, and I do
so love to dance. I won't be able to bear it much
longer because my feet are aching so. If I could
only go to some quiet cor-ner and take off my
shoes, but that wouldn't be polite.
Oh, here comes Johnny! I can't refuse this
boy because I've heard he,s a very good dancer.
Oh, what shall I do? We are only half through
with this dance, and he's continually stepping on
Oh, for that chair. To some one else it might
seem hard and uncomfortable, but to me it's a
cozy, comfy place to rest my weary bones, and
I'm going to make a dash for it now when this
dance ends,-but to my utter dismay Johnny
flashes his irresistible smile and asks me for the
next dance because he said he enjoyed the first
one so much.

Far across the ocean wide,
Lie the countries side by side.
But the one I like best
Is small compared to all the rest.
A town with meadows wide and green,
Skies and lambs. Oh! what a scene,
With cornfields scattered everywhere,
Flowers peeping here and there.
With happy children everywhere,
Their chatter seems to differ there.
Their wooden shoes-oh, such a noise,
Compared to our quiet and poise.
I'd like to live in Holland beyond the ocean wide,
Where the countries lie side by side.

REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS?
The times of hoop skirts, horses and buggies,
high collars, long sideburns, derbies, and mus-
taches are often recalled by the "Old Timers" as
the good old days. The times when the old
quartet sang "Sweet Adeline" down on the corner
under the old street lamp are remembered by
some who also remember when bicycles were for
the first time the style, and when those new con-
traptions, the tandems, came out. When a little
exaggerating is to be done, the winter of "89,',
when it was so cold and the snow was so deep,
is often brought up. -'f
Yes, those were the good old days, no gas stoves,
electric ref1'igerators, fans, washing machines,
While Webster gives the dehnitio-n of excite-
ment as, "the state of being excited," Fenger's
2B's have varied meanings for the word.
A good boxing match is john Korsisls idea of the
meaning of the word. A1111 P1'1l77CklU says, "Excite-
ment is the sensation you have when you can't sit
still, or stand, and when chills run up and down
your spinef, "The feeling aroused the day before
exams," say Alfha McD11jjfey and Sophie Solaolow-
sky. "When the Circus comes to townv is T01l1
Nicbolafs definition. George Cloufier exclaims
that excitement is stimulated when Mr. Schacht
lays a hand on some young manis quivering shoul-

electric irons, or lights. No modern automobiles,
trains, ships, trucks and airplanes that travel at
these unheard of speeds. The swell old winters,
when they all sat arou-nd the stove with one side
warm while the other froze and the wonderful
nights when the fire went out, are slightly better
with our coal, gas, and oil furnaces. Well, I
think I'd just as soon live in good old 1936. And
by the way, when we're seventy years old, we'll
have a winter of " '36" to brag about just like
those of " '89."

ing giving a thrill denotes excitement. "Anxiety
or something tensely interesting," says Williazrz.
MFTCr:l'V. Floiwvre Nc11swa11ger thinks that the
time and place of anything important happening
makes it exciting. Norrma A77f0'l1iHZZl, La Vr'r11e
Diclae, and Rose Buitice believe that excitement
is just plain "thrills.', Mary De Muir and Evelyn

"Penny, or penalty for chewing gum." Frances
Dixon recalls the time she held her hand to
catch a closing door from slamming and her hand
went right into a huge ma'n,s eye! "When I
scrubbed it once!" was E1nily Schellhase's serious
retort. Helen La Hola and Marie Ernst looked
for this chasm when initiated into the Tri-Hi-Y.
George Kocsis vainly searched for it when a "big,
bad boy" chased him. Imagine going into the
store and asking the clerk for a quart of frank-
furters and one pound of milk. You imagine it,
Helen Munson, we can't. Edith Guzzetti blush-
ingly remembers the time a sales lady dashed after
her and asked bewildered Edith for an article she
had unintentionally walked away with. Cather-
ine Ehhens wishes for a cavity in the floor when
she drops an egg and it's the only one she's got.
We don't, Catherine, we long for a rubber floor,
so that the egg would bounce right back into our
hands! Marie Burton was standing in the first
floor foyer whe 'nshe saw some one she thought
she knew, Marie walked over to the young girl,
tapped her on the shoulder, and said "Hello,"
The person turned around and, lo, and behold. it
was a teacher!!! jacqneline johnson was truly
embarrassed when she demurely walked into a
grocery store and promptly knocked over a stack
of canned goods. A very puzzled jean Rohhins
became unduly alarmed when Mrs. whitwofth
asked "'No eso es?" at the completion of a
tormenting Spanish story. When Ruth Iohnson
first came to Fenger, she and her girl friend sat
at the front tables in the lunch room which are
reserved for teachers. "I was mortified to tears,"
she said. Lorraine Hanson embarrassed herself the
day she walked into a shoe-store and asked for a
hat. Grace Macle hates to have a teacher catch
her chewing gum because she just can not part
with it. Russell Gilirnier is humiliated when he
stands up in a class and then forgets what he stood
up to say.
Modern times and modern people are making
way for convenie-nt and snappy inventions. Zip-
pers are rapidly coming more and more into de-
mand. Some like them, some don,t.
Franlz Hyland thinks that zippers are very
much faster and warmer. Just where do you
find the warmth, Frank? "Ain open and shut
case,,' says Raymond Caslin. Our twins, jane
and june Matfhewson seem to disagree on this
subject. Jane thinks they lock trim and tidy and
awfully cute!!! But June, on the other hand,
believes we are able to get much prettier buttons
and that zippers aren't half as neat. jack Ullriclz,
and Clarence Carlson join in telling us they feel
sorry for the poor button manufacturers. Eileen
De Yonng seems quite disgusted with them. "In
my opinion zippers are only made for lazy people,"
she alleges. Dorothy Davidson and Edward Claw-
son disagree. Dorothy says they are just some-
thing that gets stuck when you're in a hurry,
while Edward claims they save work and are
grand when one has no time to lose. Frances Ten-
inga doesn't like them on shirts, but thinks they
are cute on sweaters. "They remind me of a little
train running on a track," says Fannie Malito.
"Zippers are 'swelll' " in Michael Vander Meer's
estimation. Anna Mae Scaletfa declares, "They
keep other people's hands out of your pockets."
"They give an extra forty winks after the alarm
in the morning to 'us lazy guys,"' says Grace
Corrado. john Widmer is fearful for the poor,
dear people who have to think with a butto-n in
First or last impressions!!! What one does or

"You can always distinguish a Fenger pupil by
his fine spirit," declares Amy Eva Dohda. Lillian
Gross thinks that the character of a person lies
in the way he talks and acts. Carl Vitf is
drawn to any student who is willing to give
his last nightis home-work without asking ques-
tionsg "Boy, he is nearly idealf' exclaims Carl.
While julia Zaoleopny doesn't think that people
who chew gum or eat peanuts in front of others
are very attractive. Lorraine Lnll judges friends
by the way they express their opinion of studies.
jean Ri1n1ner just plainly underlines one word in
her search for a characteristic that is ideal, a-nd
that word is Sincerity. Gloria Matthews tells us
that loyalty, sincerity, and honesty are the most
befitting characteristics one can find in a person.
Wilhzir Goranson always notes whether or not
they are kind to animals. "Just give me a pair
of smiling, roguish eyes," savs Bal'iSl'a Beroletie.
june Gnllans remembers smiles, "I can always
tell you the thoughts of people by their smiles,',
declares June. "The ability to be able to agree
with someone just to keep from arguing is very
hard to accomplish, and yet when you achieve it
you never shall regret itf' alleges Dorothy David-
son. Grace Mack likes someone who can talk
well, or one who is able to relate some humorous
story without laughing at his own humor. Mar-
ion Conre says that one who is considerate of
others is always sure of being popular. Harry
Wright admires anyone who is cheerful and has
a sunny outlook on life.

Mildred Todd gazes fondly when you mention
Marlene Dietrich-she'll tell you, "She's so beau-

the heart of Dean Schultz, for Dean considers
Mickey Mouse the cleverest creation on the
screen. Vivacious Marion Davies gives many de-
lightful moments to Eleanor Grygatowiez-We
wonder how julia Mulligan would look in the
person of Greta Garbo? She would give much
to equal the famous actress-Dancers haven't

Poor Charles Smith couldn't become accus-
tomed to the vastness of Fenger and during his
first day here he searched for the elevators! Ed-
ward Bresnahan was constantly in confusion over
periods and would walk into his English class
when he belonged in History. When Howard
Price first came to Fenger, he usually got lost
and more than once consulted a teacher about
the location of his rooms. Virginia Stevenson and
Alice jurkiewicz also consider their first day at
Fenger their worst. jeanne Kroaner couldn't find
her rooms, the school's size staggered her so-
Catherine Ghidotti suffered the similar experience
-while jennie Smoter's bewilderment was at
such a point she could not find her way out-
Verdell Peterson and Carmella Arvia would al-
ways confuse their studies and locations of classes
-and Mike Geigner walked into a senior class
when he belonged elsewhere. julia Hasiuck made
the mistake of chewing gum in school. Her pen-
alty was to stand in front of the room with the
gum fastened on her forehead. Being marooned
in the painted desert at two A. M. is a very
frightening experience. The incident occurred to
Gene Weil on his exciting trip to California. For
reasons too numerous to mention joseph Burgess
considers the time he broke his leg as the worst
experience he has ever had. Nothing can make
Walter jez blush more furiously than when a

He was just a kitten when he came to live with
us. Muri was thin, tiger-striped and possessed a
peculiar meow. As he grew in body he grew in
spirit, and became a fighting, howling Tom cat,
and yet he was a majestic creature. When he was
in a peaceful frame of mind his eyes were a beau-
tiful blue-green with flecks of gold in them.
Nothing frightened him, he knew no fear.
I shall never forget the night he was having
"words" with the cat across the alley. Running
out with a glass of water, fwater is a sure way to
stop a cat fightj I threw it on Muri and took the
other cat into the house by mistake. Discovering
my error I put the other cat outside again and
went in search of Muri. There he was on the
porch, cursing everyone in general, wet from his
unexpected shower, his eyes yellow-green and his
tail twice the size it usually was.
He had no scruples. Catching fish in the
neigl'1bor's fish-pond was one of his favorite past-
times. Birds were a delicate morsel to him. He
slept in the daytime and went galavanting at
night. No doubt he kept many a person awake
with his back fence serenades.
He was always waiting on the sill of the front
window every morning to be let in. He lived but
three years, and early one fall he was laid to rest
beneath the rose bushes where he had slept away
many a warm summer afternoon. Sometimes, still,
I imagine I see him waiting on the wind-ow
sill for me to let him in.

O, where is the land where dead thoughts go
That die e'er they are born,
Thoughts that come in the dead of the night
But are past recall in the morn?
Is there a place where they lie and wait
To be reclaimed some year?
What interesting reading they would make!
I wonder if they rule our fate,
Or do they leave us forever?
Can anyone tell, do they leave or remain?
He rushes to his locker,
He puffs, "Hey, gimme air.
I gotta get to history,
Two seconds only to get there."
He dashes down the corridor
That now is still as death.
He leans against the door awhile
And tries to catch his breath.
Now thinks he of an alibi,
Ideas run through his brain.
However hard the fellow thinks
His thoughts seem all in vain.
Aha! Emerging from his trance
He boldly turns the knob.
For the sake of rhyme we now decide
To christen this boy Bob.
Our martyr goes into the room,
An excuse is on his lips.
His heart, now pounding heavily
Is doing turns and flips.
The teacher, smiling, shakes her head,
No penalties today.
You may be late for all I care,
I've just received my pay."
Our hero gasps, turns purple,
And falls into a swoon.
With the aid of anxious pals
Poor Bob recovers soon.
However, 'twas too much for him.
Heis in Dunning or Kankakee.
Which of the two I do not know.
Some folks just can't agree.
You see, he taxed his brain too hard.
It really didnit pay.
Moral: Teacher won't do tomorrow
What she did today.
I wonder if anyone knows?

JUST ANOTHER CRIPPLE
I'm just another cripple
I'11 not walk again they say,
Through a driver's careless actions
I'm here, alone today.
From my window I Watch the children play
They throw a ball around.
They're able to walk! to run! to dance!
They're able to stand on the ground.
Fm just another cripple
Whose heart and will doth yearn
To be out there, playing with bat and ball
And sometimes a new game to learn.
But I sit and stare into space.
And then to Godl pray,
"Dear Lord, please give me back my legs,
For just a single day."
Maybe when I get up to heaven
The Lord above will say,
"My boy, you've sat in that chair long
You can start walking today."
Oh! but why does He have to wait
Until 1 get to Him?
It's hard to sit here through the years
Trying to keep up my chin.

My chief dislike to that type of advertising is
that it seeks to mislead. At any time of day, I can
turn on the radio and hear why Smith's breakfast
cereal is the best food obtainable. It is claimed to
be produced by the most modern methods, to end
nervousness, to give such an abundance of energy
as even to enable Mr. Jones to win an important
ski-championship. In short, it is a miraculous
wonder of wonders, it is so superior to all rival
brands that one would be throwing money away
to buy any other. The actual truth is that these
brands fall far short of half of what they are
claimed to be. This type of advertising is used
to advertise foods, medicines, household articles,
automobiles, cigarettes fthese are not only claimed
to be harmless, but to be of some value alsoj, and
practically all other manufactured goods. Five
minutes of an average Hfteen minute broadcast
are devoted to advertising. The radio is not alone
in this regard, for many advertisements can be
seen in all newspapers, on sign boards, and other
kinds of posters, and in magazines. It is usually
found that products that are claimed to be so
wonderful are not nearly as good as those that
do their advertising by proving their qualities in

AN EXCITING RIDE
Riding a cow is no joke, as I found out this
summer when I tried to ride one in answer to
a dare. Although I had picked out what I thought
was a peaceful animal, I found I was mistaken,
for as soon as I tried to mount, she tossed her
head angrily and swished her tail at me. But I
managed to climb aboard. Then head down, tail
up, the terrified animal tore 'round and 'round
the straw stack. I dug my knees in her sides
and tried to wrap my arms around her neck in
my efforts to stay on. I soon found that was
impossible and turned my attention to getting
off. I couldn,t decide whether it would be safer
to dismount from her head or from her tail.
However, she saved me the trouble of deciding
by pitching me straight into the middle of the
barnyard where I lay a minute, too stunned to
move. When at last I picked myself up, I knew
that as a rider of cows Iwas a failure.

Clouds are like the coming of spring.
To gaze at them simply makes your heart sing.
The white, lazy clouds of summer time,
Float through the sky as high up they climb.
A feeling of peace and comfort comes,
In the heat of the day when the honey bee hums,
To you, as your heart sings a sweet, happy tune,
Or at night when dark clouds are surrounding
Greek gods will ride past, on swift steeds of
But breezes dissolve them, and thus end their
Now snow capped mountains spring forth into
With an outline of clear and radiant hue.
But always at dusk comes the evening ray
That smiles at the clouds, and they vanish away.

"THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT A
"Platoon right! Right shoulder arms! Platoon,
right front into line. Attention! Hand salute!
Fall-out!',, exclaimed Stephan Van Clay, blue-
eyed, curly headed, and full of pep, known to all
his friends as "Junior". This is a glimpse into
the future as Steve hopes to see it.
"When I get to Fenger, I hope to become a high
ranking officer in the R. O. T. C." was the answer
he gave concerning his ambition. Already Steve
has received a bar for personal appearance, and
he is one of the few to receive a Tribune medal.
He also pursues his military career outside of
school, being a commissioned First Lieutenant in
the Sons of the Legion.
Steve carries high honors in his studies too. He
was double promoted three times in grammar
school, is a member of the Curtis Honor So-
ciety, and one may also see the "Curtis Branch
Boosterv button on his coat lapel. The subject he
received the highest mark in was Algebra, so,
for this reason he considers it his favorite subject
and intends to continue with it through his four
years at Fenger.
"Although I am very interested in'math, I do
not intend to take up a career that will depend
on it. I really want to be an aviator in the United
States Army." WARREN HANSEN, 4B.
THE CURTIS LUNCHROOM AT
What a happy and noisy place is the Curtis
lunchroom at lunch time! However with the
approaching of the ninth hour all is quiet, and
I enter half fearfully on tip toe so as not to dis-
turb the dead silence.
The doors stand wide open as they stood fifth,
sixth, and seventh hours, but what a difference
in the atmosphere I notice! It is quiet, so quiet
that the five Indians on the five posters on the
two-tone brown walls seem to want to come to
life and break the silence with a war cry. Turned
upside down upon the tables, the benches are
lying idle. I smile as I think how useless the
sign, "Talk in moderate tones" is at the present
time. How sturdy stand the five pillars which
support the ceiling! Bright flowers, both nat-
ural and artificial, and even fresh, green plants
are growing in green window boxes on the win-
dow sills, making the small room cheerful and
homelike. There, before me, 'tOld Glory" waves
slowly back and forth, and, with the clock, keeps
time to the hum of the dynamos in the engine
room. The chart containing the gold bars for
the best disciplined division room fjudged ac-
cording to the instruction posters on the wallsj
hangs on the iron grating which encloses the
small room where hot dogs, hamburgers, ice
cream, milk, and candy are sold. It is hard to
imagine the tramping of Freshman feet on this
quiet cement floor.
The clock ticks on and it is getting late, so
I will leave the lunchroom in its own peace.

THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT
Enchantment!! What a delicious thrill of ex-
citement the mention of this word sends down
my spine. My imagination begins to work over
time, and I close my eyes to try and catch a
glimpse of my beloved Enchanted Island. I set
sail in my magic bark called, "Imagination"
Finally I land and pass through the golden gates
over which is written "Enchanted Island."
On my left is a beautiful palace. The entrance
door is made of gold and covered with sapphires
which shine so strong that only the strongest
eyes could bear to look at them. I see crystal
fountains splashing their sparkling waters upon
the diamond courts.
Presently two small page boys appear, each
carrying a golden trumpet, and as they blow
their trumpet, the King and Queen pass out in
royal procession. The King and Queen mount
their beautiful silver carriage, lined with satin
and decorated with precious jewels. I believe I
shall follow them. They are stopping. Why, it's
the grand fair at Fairyland!
As I enter, to my left are merry-go-rounds
made of chocolate, to my right are roller coasters
made of frosting, and over there is the famous
Punch and Judy Show.
Finally as dusk begins to fall, I hasten to my
waiting boat which carries me away from my
land of fancies. No matter if you are six or
sixty, the mysteries and delights of the Enchanted
Island never dim. Your little boat is always
ready to take you back to that precious Isle.

Our teachers may be me-an at times,
At other times they're good,
But you'd be tired and mean sometimes
If all day long you stood
In front of children, dumb and smart,
And tried to get their brains to start.
Some kids say, their brains Won't work
But sit the whole day through and shirk,
While teachers must keep their patience up
And not get tired and mean and rough.
They try to make our brains start right
To keep some good thoughts in our sight.
If we keep good thoughts of our work and
We,d forget all our worries and also our
We'd 'tend to our studies, the teachers weid
And all remain friends for many a year.

DOGS versus CATS
Dogs are pals and will protect you against any
one who tries to hurt you. They are smart, and
understand when something is wrong. They
sometimes know what you say to them. They
are obedient and willing to do what you want
them to do, and will learn tricks if you will take
the time to teach them.
Cats are not very smart. In my estimation,
they are dumb. You may try and try to teach
a cat some trick, but it is not very often that
you succeed in teaching it anything. They are
more of a girl's pet, or an ornament. This may
sound foolish to you, but I have taught my dog
a few tricks, while never have I succeeded in
teaching a cat a thing. I would much rather
have a dog, a real pal, than own an ornament,
such as a cat.

They don't write poems about Dad
It doesn't seem the fashion or fad.
They write about mother
Or some other,
But they seldom write about Dad.
With him you can have lots of fun
Pleasant evenings when day is done.
With all the sacrifices he makes
For our sake,
They still don't write about Dad.
Through all the long day he works
And from his duty he doesn't shirk.
But ere day's work is thru,
He's more tired than you
But who ever writes about Dad?

SUNRISE AND SUNSET
To me two of the most beautiful sights in the
world are the rising and the setting of the sun.
In the early morning can be seen the first rays
of the sunrise. First come the streaks of gold,
followed by brighter lines of yellow, until a dark
circle of gold is formed which grows brighter
until it covers the horizon. No artist with all
his paint brushes and colors could paint such a
It is one that is rivaled only by the setting
of the sun. Away out across the lake can be
seen, in the sky, flames of color coming down
to meet the water and to set it aiire. Gradually
the color grows lighter, the sun fades away, and
night is upon us.

CHILDHOOD FEARS AND SUPERSTITIONS
Boy! Mt. Vernon certainly has a lot of stu-
dents compared to the size of its halls. After
being pushed around for a few minutes, I finally
received some unusual information on childhood
fears and superstitions to satisfy my curiosity in
Prom Vernon come some of these inter-
esting fancies. Eddie Holmes feared a Teddy
bear when he was young. Eddie had a ten-
dency to eat everything in the pantry, so to
overcome this habit, his mother placed a Teddy
bear in the pantry, and from then on he stayed
away from the tempting cupboard. Fay Wilson
dreads darkness but has no special reason for it.
WesleygSizoo is said to abhor dogs. A large
dog once took a bite at him, and he has not been
exactly fond of dogs ever since. Peter Palango
was bothered by policemen. Whenever Peter
wouldn't obey, his parents used to "kid', him by
saying they would call a policeman to take him
to jail. Now Peter didn't like the idea of going
to jail, so he naturally obeyed. The well known
ubogey-man" was Alice Parkerls childhood fear.
When asked for her reason, she answered, "Well,
I would stay out late evenings, and the only way
my mother could get me into the house was by
saying there were 'bogey-men' outside." Ethel
Vanderlaag doesn't believe in superstitions and
consequently hasn't any. One thing that still
bothers Lois Wiese is broken mirrors, for she was
told that they bring seven years' bad luck. Robert
Reginer is superstitious about lucky coins. Every
time he has one it brings him bud luck.
Black cats are quite unpopular in the "cate-
goryu of some Mt. Vernon students. It must be
a common thing to be superstitious of black cats,
as it seems to be the case of Helen Pocius,
Madelyn Biever, Steve Michuda, Evelyn Tissing,
and Charles Dalton. Black cats, crossing Charles
Dalton's path, seem to bring him bad luck also.
There's an old saying, "If a black cat crosses
your path, take six steps backward and it will
save the day for you." Well, Charles did this
once, and fell into a puddle of water. Steve
Michuda will walk a block out of his way, just

to avoid a black cat. Evelyn Tissing really
doesn't know Why she fears a cat, but after a
moment, she spoke up, "I don't think I would
be human if I didn't.,' I'd hate to Witness one
roaming 'round the third floor of the Mt. Vernon
metropolis. There probably would be another
catastrophe of cat-fits with the students going
to the second floor to avoid Mister Cat non-
chalantly roaming around on the third floor.
These are only a few of the students' reactions
to unexplainable happenings, but one can readily
see the great number of fears and superstitions
acquired in childhood, some of which have been
dissipated, some have not, despite the maturing

SO HE TELLS ME!
"Sure, I like swimming! I jumped in at the
wrong end of the pool when I didnit know how
to swim and nearly drowned." That would make
some people fear the water but as Billy Wrueger
of Mt. Vernon bravely said, "I just turned to it
and learned right there and then!" Besides swim-
ming, Billy plays football and baseball well.
In other spare moments he builds model air-
planes. "Fd like to break his toys for him." This
is the way Billy, dark haired and mischievous
looking, feels when his brother breaks his model
airplanes. Heis made several fairly good ones and
specializes in flying models.
I suppose one would think he wa-nted to be an
aviator but surprisingly he wants to be a sta-
tionary engineer. This choice is due largely to the
fact that his uncle is a chief stationary engineer.
This work has to do with electric and steam en-
gines. Disappointed because he wanted an electric
shop course at Pullman Tech, not knowing Fenger
could offer him one, Bill took up a 4 G. L. course,
but he's going to make up for it by going to
Armour Tech after graduating from high school.

can go down in the engine room and talk to the

THE MOUNT VERNON TEA ROOM
To a Fengerite it would be another room ex-
actly like all others in Mount Vernon with the
exception of its having all the desks removed.
But to a Mount Vernonite it is the height of
ambitions, the journey's end.
Within these four walls dine those of whom
Mount Vernon is proud, proud of their estab-
lished records in scholarship. For to eat in this
exalted place one must have attained a high
standard of grades in all studies. Therefore, they
are the cream of Mount Vernon. Because of this
one may think a rigid line is drawn but it really
isnit. For not to be able to sit there is no dis-
grace, but it is worth striving for. Once attained,
it is well worth the sacrifice a-nd energy which
were employed. Not only do you receive the
admiration of the school, but you have the glori-
ous self-satisfaction of knowing your marks are
worthy of merit.
Even the title, "Tea Room," carries out the
idea of elite, but I don't think many, if anV,
drink tea with their lunch in this room of the
If one has never been to Mount Vernon and
seen this unique room he cannot believe it exists.
I suggest a trip to observe the actions and condi-
tions of the Tea Room for all Fengerites. I be-
lieve Fenger should have one, too, don't you?

When study and school are over,
How jolly it is to be free,
Away in the fields of clover
Is where I want to be.
Away from the stir and bustle,
The noise of the town left behind,
Vacation for sport and for muscle,
Winter for study and mind.
In summer there's never a worry,
There's never a lesson to learn,
There's never a bell to cause hurry,
There,s never a duty to spurn.
So play 'til the face doth grow ruddy
And muscles grow bigger, and then
Go back to the books and to study
And it will be pleasant again.

I once came upon a scene of beauty which I
shall not easily forget. The sun was just setting
behind a hill of the Catskill mountains in the state
of New York.
In the background were two stately pointed
mountain peaks, capped with a feathery white
blanket of snow, which reflected the soft, lustrous
shellpink of the sky. With the fading of day,
the sky assumed a light, gorgeous shade of blue
with occasional streaks of pink floating through
it. Graceful clouds sailed by lazily, changing
gradually to fluffy white, losing, as if regretfully,
their recent pinkness. As I watched, silence
seemed to engulf the peaceful beauty of the scene.
The only sounds were those of the bubbling stream
far down below me, while invisible to my eye,
a bird called to its lonely, vigilant mate. Grad-
ually the colors faded, then melted into the cloud-
less twilight. All traces of pink and blue love-
liness were gone, and only dark, solemn night

On houses, softly, and on the ground,
On little catfeet stealthily. Slow,

With riders swaying like willow reeds.

HOW HE WON
He tried to smile when things looked blue
And held for him a gloomy view,
He strove to see life's rosy hue,
And he forged straight toward the top!
"Luck!D people said, "A big stand-in!"
"A pull's the thing that helped him in!"
He heard their comments with a grin,
But climbed on without stop.
He tried to smile in storm or galeg
He closed his ears to that word t'Fail"
And buckled down and blazed the trail
And faced things as they came!
He had his share of fret and rile
And yet no matter what the trial
He tried to meet it with a smile-
That,s how he Won the game!

WI-IAT'S IN A NAME?
"Do you know what your name means?',
This challenge seemed slightly to disconcert the
circle of eager faces that surrounded me in the
hall at Burnside Branch. There isn't a single
name in the English language or in any other
language either, that doesn't have some meaning.
You have noticed the confusing number of
"son's', from Sweden, "Mads" from Ireland and
Scotland, and "Van's" from Holland.
For instance, there is Robert Nelson, who
obligingly says that he remembers looking it up,
and that Robert means "Hero of the Vfarvg that
Nelson is a constraction of "Nils son," a common
Swedish name. Barbara Mesko doesn't' know
what her surname means, but she was called Bar-
bara after her mother, and it has something to
do with "stranger." Hazel Schaffner tells you
with a delightful smile that she was named for a
good friend of her mother's: Hazel is the color.
Both Jeannette Jamros and John Bruno have
names meaning "the gift of God," and although
Jeannette is proud of it, John is inclined to scoff.
By the way, in Italy John Bruno would be just
plain "John Brown." Marv Bournazos is char-
acteristically opposed to her name, which means
"bitterness,' or "sorrow." One of the most satis-
fying names in Burnside Branch belongs to Ida
Fioretti. Ida means "happy,,' and Fioretti "little
Flowerf' -Ruth means l'beauty" according to
Ruth Carson. Then there is Pearl Iwancio, who
smiles a teasing, provoking little smile when she
Mr. Mouse said to Mrs. Mouse, while walking

place to make a home, when the first period bell
rings. Let us look in the other cloakroomsf' So

"Oh!" said Mrs. Mouse, "isn't this just the
nicest cloakroom with sliding blackboards to shut
out the noise, instead of those two open doorways
which admit all the noises?"
"There goes the bell, come let's hidef, said Mr.
Mouse. "Just listen to the boys and girls slam-
ming their books on the floor while taking off
their wraps. Now the teacher is explaining the

TI-IE CREAM OF THE CROP
Ideas? Virginia and Gloria Barich of Burnside
Branch are literally swimming in them. That is
what makes them so interesting to everyone, in-
cluding each other-and perhaps that's why they
are always wearing those big, bright smiles. Both
would like to hold high positions in an oH'ice, but
better still they would like to be teachers and get
apples from the children.
"I like spaghetti better than anything else in
the world to eatf' said one of the twins. She was

says that Pearl stands for "innocence.', Helen
Zene and Lena Esposito share the meaning of
"light,' for their given names.
Always candid, Frank Selmer believes in names
that "say what they mean" as his does. Peppy,
interesting Patricia Manes has a name meaning
"noble" or "of high birth." Lois Cloutier wist-
fully wonders whether she is as "good', as her
name signifies, and Louis Tolnai and Donald Case
don't seem to resent the Indian reference in the
meanings of their names, "bold warriorn and
A name very suggestive in its meaning is that
of Norman Prythero. It is Hman of the North."
Helen Barna delightfully tells us of the striking
combination her name makes. Her first meaning
"light" and her last "brown." John Swick is
proud to possess the favorite of all boys' Hrst
names. It means the same as Jane or Jeannette
and has ninety-three various forms used in
twenty-seven different languages.
Many times names which were given us do
not suit our personalities due to parents choosing
pleasant-sounding names for their children rather
than names with splendid meanings. When some-
one approaches a subject so engrossing as is this
one and says, "What's in a name?', do a little
investigating and find out!

come and get their coats and hats at the close of
each period, and carry them to their next class.

and we can not find a good one in which to
make our home. Now Cousin Mouse told me

I OURNALI SM
This year sixty-six members composed a jour-
nalism class that was so large they have divided
into two separate groups meeting during the fifth
and sixth periods. Fenger never before has had
so many students enrolled for this subject.
As we all know the purpose of this class is to
teach Fengerites the fundamentals of high school
journalism, such as writing news-stories, features,
editorials, and planning headlines, and page make
up. For example, planning headlines is a difficult
matter with which they must struggle. It takes
time and thought to compose complete, sprightly
headlines, to space and number the letters accu-
rately, to determine type of print, and to include
the correct grammatical principles. These things
learned, outstanding members are then prepared
to join the News Staff.
Several students have already shown promise
in their writings. Anna Lotz, James Halcombe,
and Jewell Keesen wrote splendid news stories.
Feature writing has proved that Dorothy Rach-
lirz, Ursula Zeiber, and Alice Mae Duncan are
talented in this field. Three' writers contributed
short stories to John P. Lally's contest in the
Daily News. They are George Murdock, Guine-
vere Brouillette, and Jean De Young. Through
the efforts of Virginia Brehm the class visited
the Cuneo Press which had the Gutenberg Exhibi-
tion at the World's Fair.

THE FENGER NEWS
This year. forty-five members compose the larg-
est Fenger News Staff our school has ever had.
Under the guidance of Miss Mildred Taylor, it
is the work of these outstanding students to
gather the material that forms the latest news,
features, sports items, personals, and scoops that
appear in each weekly issue of the Fenger News.
The hours of extra time they spend go far toward
making up a paper that ranks high among other
Chicago school publications. Correll Julian and
Ellen Van Etten are its assignment editors, Jane
Jenkinson, managing editor, and Robert Yampol-
sky, business manager.
The present staff has moved from its former
meeting place in Room 131 to 130, which is
larger and more convenient. In the new room,
tables are now provided for page editors and
sinks for staff members, sticky Hngers. The typ-
ists too are considered, for they now have sepa-
rate desks on which to type their material.
Six page publications are now almost a regular
feature. Two special issues, out April 16 and 23,
were published this semester. One was concerned
with che South Side Science Meeting, and the
other was on the Clean-Up issue.
The staff rewarded its oldest members by send-
ing them to the High School journalistic Con-
ference at Northwestern University during May

QUILL AND SCROLL
Every year the Fenger chapter of the Quill and
Scroll Honor Society sponsors a literary contest
throughout Fenger and the three branches. Fol-
lowing this custom, the organization, under the
supervision of Miss Mildred Taylor, who is the
adviser, successfully launched their third annual
writers' contest this semester. The contest began
during the latter part of March and ended April
13. As usual there were four classes: essays, poems,
short stories, and book reports in both junior and
senior divisions. The winners in each class re-
ceived fountain pens as prizes at an assembly held
April 24. The oificers, Alberta Marianelli, presi-
dent, Virginia Fallon, vice-president, Ruth Bar-
ron, secretary, Correll Julian, treasurer, and Jose-
phine Pochron, program chairman, wish to ex-
press their thanks to those teachers who cooper-
ated so kindly and the students who responded so
splendidly and helped to make the contest a suc-
It is now the aim of the Quill and Scroll, which
is sponsoring the completion of the "History of
Fengerv in collaboration with aspirants to the so-
ciety who are on the News Staff, to have this pub-
lished in book form by next November, as that is
the month of Fenger's 10th anniversary.
The journalists who have qualified for Quill
and Scroll will be i-nitiated at a tea this semester.
The new members must be announced in the next

Away from the noisy throngs of crowded halls
--away from the excited babble of enthused
classmates stands a refuge, a haven of rest, for
the Weary, book-hungry Fenger citizens-the
school library. Located on the second floor, it is
in the heart and is the heart of Fenger City.
Assisting in the numerous tasks of library rou-
tine and generally accommodating those who per-
vade its recesses are twenty assistants, two for
each period of the day. They are volunteer people
and "As you may notice," states Miss Etta B.
Fluke, head librarian, "they are individuals of
high calibre many of Whom are rated as honor
Experience plus pleasure equals service rendered
to the school-is the practical, algebraic reason
why the student librarians perform the work they
do. Fenger is truly grateful to this quiet, unob-
trusive group which renders unselfish aid in such
a whole-hearted and willing manner. Hereis is-
suing them a final memento of gratitude-
Whether a Courier Representative is elected by
the class or chosen by the teacher, he must be a
reliable person. He must have initiative and be
interested in his work because the Courier de-
pends upon his co-operation for success. The
goal of every representative is to obtain 100 per
cent in group pictures and subscriptions to the
To instruct, encourage, and inspire the repre-
sentatives, a number of meetings must be held
each semester. Their first task is that of per-
suading the lower classmen to take 'part in the
group pictures. This requires time, accuracy,
and responsibility on the Part of the representa-
tive because of the money involved. With all
the division pictures, plus those of the clubs, one
can easily see that our financial editors would be
practically lost without the able assistance of
these hard working students. After the group
pictures, comes the main task, that of obtaining
subscriptions for the Courier. Hu-ndreds of dol-
lars pass through the hands of these people with-
out a loss, which proves their real ability. All
this work goes on behind the scenes, and these
eighty-four faithful workers are rewarded with
buttons, pads of paper for 100 per cent subscrip-
tions, and in various other ways.
Without the full co-operation and the whole-
hearted support of the faculty, the work of the
representatives would not reach the high standard
it has now' achieved. The Courier Staff wishes to
thank both the representatives and the faculty
for their valuable aid in making the Courier a
Speaking of work--how's this for a real rec-
ord? 463 typewritten pages, 1,382 postal cards,
345 collection envelopes, 76 stencils, 12,770 mimi-
eographed copies, plus many uncounted letters for
individual teachers! This list of accomplishme-nts
constitutes only a minimum amount of work fin-
ished in twenty days or one school month by
seventeen secretarial training girls who work be-
hind the stage of the Upper Room, 309. This
work has been done for the benefit of every de-
partment in the school.
Aside from these fruits of secretarial labor, the
absentee lists were produced by Betty Cameron,
Esther Mork, and Vita Fanizo, while to Nelvina
Prince goes the credit for the making of Fenger's
Edna Grinn, Dorothy Moore, Ruby Priess, and
Olga Washko held the distinctly honorable posi-
tions of secretaries to Mr. Frederick Schacht.
Their duty was to take dictation and to transcribe
it. Also helping Mr. Schacht were nine student
clerks, one for each hour of the day, who will-
ingly rendered help at all times. Assisting Miss
Sarah Schmid in the outer officer were Lorraine
Cooper, Elsie Larson, Jean Prior, Victoria Miazga,
Marion Rodgers, and surprising to say-one boy,
Fred Drolin. These people filed and did miscel-
laneous work of every nature. Marion Newton,
Norma Anderson, and June Baker served faith-
fully in the capacity of Mrs. Ella Burkhardt's
aides. Two efficient secretaries to Mr. Harry
Beals were Jessie Zachacz and Ruth Schmidt.
Day in and day out, these energetic pupils,
working under the supervision of Miss Marie
McCutcheon, devoted their time and efforts "for
the greater honor and glory of the school." The
only reward for their whole-hearted cooperation
and zealous adherence to duty has been the rich
experience gained. May it prove to be a fertile
soil on which they can successfully plow their
ways through life and bear fruitful harvests!

R. O. T.
With a record enrollment of 270 cadets,
Fenger's R.O.T.C. boasts the largest unit in its
history, dating back to 1924 when it had only
twenty-one cadets enrolled. Our military instruc-
tor, Sergeant William P. Robinson, has aimed to
build up Fenger's unit. Having succeeded
through the adoption of a new promotion system,
his next triumph will be to place Fenger on the
map as an honor school. With the respect and
loyalty Sergeant Robinson has gained in only two
semesters, this problem should be easily solved.
A "new deali' in the system of promotions
was put into effect and was met with favor by
all of the cadets. All privates were permitted
to take an examination to become corporalsg all
corporals were required to pass an examination
in order to be promoted to sergeantsg all ser-
geants had to pass an examination to be commis-
sioned oilicers. This plan enabled any cadet to
become a non-commissioned officer if he felt
himself worthy. This semester each cadet received
his grade in R.O.T.C. which was determined by
an examination taken every Hfth week. Upon
satisfactory completion of a competitive examina-
tion, appointments to the staff were madeg--

Congratulations to our crack drill squad which
finished in fourth place. In this were twenty-
seven squads competing in the annual squad com-
petition held at the 131st Infantry Armory,
March 21. Our boys took first place in personal
appearance and remained in second place in drill
until the twenty-fifth squad went on the floor.
April 6th was a big day for our unit when we
participated i-n a huge parade downtown with the
R.O.T.C. units of all Chicago High Schools, the
Illinois National Guard, and the American
Legion, in Celebration of Army Day.
Commanding Company "AU is Cadet First
Lieutenant Fra-ncis Mikels, assisted by Cadet Sec-
ond Lieutenants Jack Hiatt, and Parker Horsely,
platoon leaders. The First Sergeant is Charles
Higgins. Commanding "BU is Cadet Captain Er-
nest Malnassy, assisted by Cadet First Lieutenants
Albert Pype and Alex Lubert, and Cadet First
Sergeant William McClurg. Cadet First Lieu-
tenant Elwood Peterson, assisted by Cadet Second
Lieutenants Roy Pritchett and Udell Tomasek,
platoon leaders, is commander of Company "C,"
Cadet John Slager is the First Sergeant. The Curtis
Branch, Company "Dv composed of 48 cadets, is
under the command of Cadet First Lieutenant
William Turnbull with Cadet Second Lieutenants
Lawrence Lucas and Henry Mohr as platoon lead-
ers and Cadet Earl Swanson as the First Sergeant.
R. O. T. C. ORGANIZATIONS
The R.O.T.C. has four active organizations,
the first is the R.O.T.C. Band, which was com-
posed of thirty cadets under the direction of Cap-
tain William Burnham and commanded by Cadet
First Lieutenant Edward Murtaugh, assisted by
Cadet Second Lieutenants Bruce Bell, Peter
Broehl, and Robert Smitter. The records were
kept by Cadet First Sergeant Charles Kiefer. The
only graduating officers this semester are Lieu-
tenants Murtaugh and Bell. What is a military
organization without a good band? It hasn't
any pep, you,ll say. Our boys have improved
greatly over last semester and added much to the
Army Day Parade and to the Federal Inspection.
The Commissioned Ojicvrs Club again chose for
the second semester, Cadet Major John Lisack and
First Lieut. Francis Mikels to hold the offices of
president, 'and secretary-treasurer respectively.
The club this semester, meets in the R.O.T.C.
office before school on Tuesdays at seven o,clock.
A committee of ofhcers headed by Major Lisack
a-nd assisted by First Lieutenant Murtaugh, Sec-
ond Lieutenants, Bell, Mohr, Peterson, Smitter,
and Tomasek put on the first Annual Military
Ball which was held in the school gymnasium
the evening of April 24. The affair was semi-
formal and was termed a huge success by the
entire unit. The No-11-Cofzziizissiofmd Officers
Club, under the leadership of the tallest cadet in
the unit, First Sergeant Earl Swanson, met every
other Wednesday tenth hour in room 144. Other
officers in the club were Sergeant Howard An-
drews, vice-president, and Sergeant George Dek-
ker as the secretary-treasurer. At every meeting
an oHicer would speak on some phase of military
tactics, to prepare the N.C.O.'s for the Federal
Inspection. The purpose of this club is to prepare
the N.C.O.,s to be commissioned ofiicers. Real-
izing their ability in R.OT.C. tactics, Sergeant
W. Robinson promoted all the members of this
year,s crack drill squad. Cadet Corporals Parker
jones and Howard Schmidt were promoted to the
rank of Staff Sergeants and the rest of the mem-
bers of the squad to corporals. The Rijic Team
this semester was headed by Cadet First Lieuten-
ant William Turnbull, who was range officer.
Other members of the Rifle team were: Cadet
Major John Lisack, Cadet Captains Edward Hen-
ley and Ernest Malnassy, Cadet Second Lieuten-
ants Henry Mohr and Udell Tomasek, Cadet Ser-
geants George Dekker, Howard Schmidt, Richard
Webber, and Parker Jones. For the first time in
the unit's history major school letters have been
awarded to members of the rifle team.

l ' AN ORCHESTRA
"The German orchestra will play only German
musicv stated Miss Korten who is the faculty
adviser. Originated for students who are inter-
ested in German folk songs, marches, and other
familiar German selections. The forming of a
German orchestra was Miss Korten's splendid idea.
A person need not think he has to be German to
be in this orchestra for anyone who likes German
music may belong.
Norman Gable, the orchestra,s manager, is very
busy managing the affairs of the orchestra. With
his characteristic unselfish devotion to music of
the school, Mr. Neil Trimble consented to direct
the work of this orchestra of which William
Chiaro, the city's famous trombone player, is the
This organization was formed this semester and
hopes to have enough members next semester to
continue its work in the music of Germany. We
hope to hear more of this orchestra, so come out
' ADVANCED ORCHESTRA
Harmonious strai-ns of music issue forth when
the advanced orchestra commences to play one of
Bach's, Mendelssohn's, or Beethoven's selections.
An able instructor, Mr. Trimble has developed
quite a number of musicians, some of whom bega-n
not knowing a note. If you think that an
orchestra director,s job is a snap, just drop
around to room 206 and watch the proceedings.
He presented members of the advanced orchestra,
who served in the orchestra for two consecutive
semesters without receiving credits, with harps
made of chenille to wear on their sweaters.
An assembly was presented on March 24, giv-
ing the orchestra members practice in facing an
audience in preparation for the Chicago High
School Solo Contest, in which they participated.
"L'Arlisienne Suite" by Bizet and the "Magic
Flutei' by Mozart were the numbers rendered at
the assembly, the former of which was chosen for
the contest. Before this contest selection, the
orchestra played what is called a "warm up"
number in musical terms. Hours and hours of
hard work were spent practicing for the contest.
In charge of all affairs we find Joe Biegel, who
is the secretary of the orchestra as Well as its
musical librarian. He is also in charge of the
distribution and collection of all sheet music.
Probably next semester some other eificient person
of Fengeris population may steo into his shoes
and carry on the excellent work.

Plectrum! "What does that mean?" some may
ask. Well, it is the pick that the students use to
strum such instruments as a guitar or ukulele. The
bass violin, banjo, and instruments of this sort are
the type used.
This organization of talented artists as mem-
bers, were under the supervision of a student,
namely, Bert McNally. Bert is a fellow who is
liked by all for his wonderful personality as well
as efficiency. For speed in playing a fast selection
Ted Koziocas and Bert McNally fulfill the qualifi-
cations, for their fingers fairly fly over the frets.
Only this semester was this organization
formed, of students who wished to belong to an
orchestra of a different type. With fifteen mem-
bers, the club came through with flying colors
and hope to gain more popularity next semester.

Good students, good music, and a good instruc-
tor! No wonder the junior orchestra has ad-
vanced so rapidly. The orchestra members are
the kind of people who want to get ahead, there-
fore they accomplish much in the limited time
they have of one period a day for practice.
Along with a few others, Ray Morrison, who
plays in this orchestra, has developed his knowl-
edge of music to where he participated in the
contest as a member of the advanced orchestra.

Ability acquired in the orchestra helps to while
away leisure hours, it also aids financially, if one
joins an orchestra outside of school. Musical
knowledge comes in handy in various ways other
than those of pleasure or profession, since, "when
you're musical, you're popular."
There is nothing more to say about these mem-
bers except that they are a fine bunch of students
in personality and efficiency.

"Rhythm Is Our Businessn is the motto of the
social orchestra, and they live up to this standard
in a most musical fashion. Playing at socials is
the main function of this snappy outfit.
The members are all interesting personalities.
An example of nimble fingers is the director Fred
Kommers, who fills his part very well by playing
the piano. Composi-ng the saxophone section, we
have the short but dynamic Q'Chuck" Kiefer as-
sisted by Harry King, the blond demon, and

the social orchestra. Harry Lind plays the electric

guitar, an instrument which has recently been
perfected and successfully featured. Two sociable
fellows, James Gaudio and "Martyn Schmidt, play
the trumpets while the smiling "Bill" Jahnke
keeps steady rhythm as the drummer.
Experience was achieved by the members who
played in the orchestra, and due to their wonder-
ful music, the socials spo-nsored by various clubs
and organizations have prospered well. As per-
sonal advice, I suggest that you learn to dance
and attend socials. The musicjs mellifluous.

Opportunity offers its hand to all aspiring
young musicians in the guise of a Beginning Or-
chestra, which is again under the capable direction
of Mr. Neil Trimble. Musically inclined students
are able, through this organization, to obtain at
least the fundamental principles employed in the
playing of any musical instrument without going
to the expense of lessons or even of buying an
instrument since a limited number of instruments
are furnished free to students who cannot obtain
them. Another advantage of these instructions is
that through class lessons an individual can learn
more rapidly by hearing corrections of their class-
During the past week the Beginning Orchestra
has progressed in i-nstruction to the point where
some of the members have become quite adept.
This semester thirty-eight students have taken
advantage and have joined the Beginning Orhes-
tra class which meets regularly during the ninth
period, interested students who attend class every
day can earn credits toward graduation.
We hope this organization will soar to new
heights and bring honors to a school deserving of

Band Festivals! Solo Contests! Amateur Pro-
gram! a-nd many more are the achievements of
the band this past semester. We students of Fen-
ger should be proud of our band's accomplish-
ments and support them as well next semester as
we did this.
The Senior band presented the band festival
which was held on January 17. Because of its
success, it was presented at Mt. Vernon on March
20, under the auspices of the Mt. Vernon P.T.A.
In the preliminaries of the Chicago High School
Band Contest, held at Tilden Tech in April,
Fengeris band was a participant. It was also
represented at the Chicago High School Solo
Contest with Bill Chiaro and Dorothy Rachlitz
rendering a trombone and clarinet solo respec-
tively. With members such as Bill Chiaro and
Dorothy Rachlitz, this organization should be
progressive and well known. On account of his
eHiciency, one member, Bob Smitter, has charge
of the band,s business.
Under the leadership of the capable director,
Captain Burnham, the Senior band has improved
greatly in the past semester. Captain Burnham
spends his first four periods at Fenger and the
remainder of the day at Mt. Vernon.
The band festival, which was a huge success,
was presented at Fenger on January 17, and again
at Mt. Vernon on March 20 under the auspices of
the Mt. Vernon P.T.A. Participating in this event
were a few members of the junior orchestra.
At Fenger we seldom have the privilege of
hearing our band and its militaristic music. After
listening to the rumbling of the big bass drum
and the shrill tones of the flute, the echo rings in
our ears reminding us of the revolutionary
days and our heroic forefathers and their sons.
Who knows but what some members of the
junior band are related to these heroic ancestors.
There seems to be something about our band's
militaristic music that sends the blood dancing
through our veins, making us keep step with the
music. With music such as this We can easily
understand how our forefathers marched brave-
ly into battle to the music of the Hfe and drum.
Trying hard to gain positions in the concert
orchestra, the members are working mightily and
hope to acquire that position which they seek.
"Join the band, it's -an opportunity to learn
to play a musical instrument."

people, but to the Fenger stamp fans, they are
of great value. Under the sponsor-ship of Mr.

THE MATH CLUB
The Mathematics club, one of the best and
most interesting clubs which we have among us,
has again been organized under the capable super-
vision of Miss Fanny Hall, faculty sponsor.
The members of this organization all have
high averages in mathematics and do therefore
take up a more advanced type of problem as is
not provided for in the regular curriculum. All
advanced algebraic problems and geometrical
theorems, that are given by the University of
Chicago and the Chicago Normal College in en-
trance examinations, are taken up and solved at
the meetings. Problems containing humor are
also enjoyed by all of the members.
Miss Phyllis Hansen, president, represented the
Mathematics Club at the April meeting of the
P.T.A. and spoke on the functioning of the Math
club. Other members of the governing board
are Gunnar Ohman, vice president, Alice Mae
Duncan, secretary, and Benny Righter, is the
Whoever said that Latin was a musty, dead
language? Suflicient proof that it isn't, is the
long existence of the Fenger Forum. The mem-
bers have shown their interest in the club by
dramatizing various Latin plays, celebrating the
"Feast of Pallasf' by adopting an honor system
and translating their names into Latin-Guillul-
mus, Arturus, and Rufus.
Under Miss McPartlin's kind guidance, the offi-
cers: Theresa Gustas, first consul, John Farr,
second consul, Greta Ohman, praetorg Ellen Van
Etten, aedileg Marie Arquilla, club musician, and
Constance Myers, social committee chairman, and
the cooperation of the members, the semester has
quickly come and gone leaving many pleasant
and profitable memories.

THE ARCHITECTURAL CLUB ' f
The Architectural Club is quite different from
other clubs of the school, in that it has no oiicers
or any regular meetings. Its chief activities con-
sist of trips made to various places of interest
under the supervision of Mr. Koerner. One of
the most instructive trips arranged through the
help of Mr. Koerner and some of the club mem-
bers was a tour of the new Normal Theater,
which was made possible through the courtesy
of Mr. McClellan, the architect. The members
of the club were in possession of the plans of this
theater, and from time to time have made com-
parisons of the theater with the plans, thereby
gaining a better understanding of the reading of
blue prints by seeing actual construction.
Recently a few members have been placed in
drawing oflices, showing that this club is beneficial
to its members.

P. T. A.
For many years it has been the aim of the
Fenger Parent-Teachers Association to promote
a better spirit of understanding between the stu-
dents and the association. By creating this close
relationship, the P.T.A. feels that a better com-
prehension of school problems and classes can be
obtained bv the parents, thus enabling them to
render more assistance to the students. To help
carry out this cooperation to a greater extent,
the program for the year has been so arranged
that the students, parents, and teachers are a part
of each program. Vivienne Johnson, a member
of the Student Council, has also been chosen stu-
dent member of the organization for this semes-
ter. All thoughtful persons will accord the asso-
ciation the accomplishment of this aim.
Many projects have been sponsored by our
P.T.A., one of which has been that of assisting
the 4A class in procuring a curtain for the stage
of our assembly hall, by donating the remainder
of the money, which had been earned by our
prom, an occasion the Parent Teachers Associa-
tion have sponsored for several years.

The Phorex was open again this semester to
students who had a ninety or above in their major
and not less than eighty in their minor subjects.
This organization is purely an honor society,
membership to which depends entirely upon
scholarship, and is open only to students whose
marks show their high scholastic ability. Every-
one who has any ambition to get ahead in school
life tries to gain membership in this society.
Every semester a group of students who have
been in the society for seven semesters receive
permanent membership. This semester seven stu-
dents, three boys and four girls, have retained
their pins to signify their permanent membership
in the society. Miss Charlotte J. Smith wishes to
thank Lillian Kluses, Astrid Jordahl, Mary Batur-
evick, and Pauline Bartfay, who have given valu-
able help by going over the course books and
taking charge of the distribution of pins.

Have you observed the charming reproductions
of famous paintings which are adorning the walls
of rooms 232, 233, and 235? They were gen-
erously donated to the school from the 528.00
surplus of last semester's Junior Citizens, treasury.
With 300 members, this organization is one of
Fengefs largest. Under the able supervision of
Mr. Heber Hays and the efficient leadership of
the officers: Kenneth Anderson, presidentg Robert
Race, vice-president, Genevieve Buttin, secretary,
Marjorie Carlson, treasurer, and Grace Burnett,
social chairman, the club's civic activities for this
term may be pronounced highly satisfactory.
The fun began when a gala party was held
on Thursday, April 23, in the small auditorium
at which time an amusing skit was presented by
the Drama Class. Friday, May 8, was the dead-
line for the clubis semi-an-nual essay contest, the
substantial awards being SS, 53, and SZ. "The
League of Nations," a subject on which our
seniors are well versed, was the selected topic for
the contest. By way of celebrating the day of
the deadline, a big and successful social was
given. Two weeks later, the participants and
contest winners were entertained at a delight-
fully informal luncheon party. As a climax, an
enjoyable picnic was held in May. Long Live
Fenger's Junior Citizens Club!
OUR ESSAY CONTEST
The Junior Citizens organized their club in the
spring of 1931 in affiliation with the Chicago
Historical Society. The central features of their
activities was to be an essay contest on some
subject, either recent or remote, in the history
of the Northwest Territory. This was most be-
coming as including the five states immediately
surrounding Chicago. And to stimulate interest
in the subject a picnic trip was to be taken to
thc scene of the event.
The first excursion was to the Black Hawk
monument on Rock River above Oregon and to
the statue of Lincoln, who posed as a Black Hawk
captain at Dixon. At that time the subject for the
essay was the Black Hawk War. On another
occasion, the point of interest visited by the club
was Battle Ground on the Tippecanoe River above
Lafayette, the subject being the battle between
Tecumseh's braves and General Harrison. Starved

Lately we have drifted from local subjects to
more distant parts of the world. The Ethiopian
question was the subject last semester and for
this term it is the League of Nations. At the
same time the size of the club has hindered trips
to remoter places, and we have been picnicking
on the Sauk Trail west of Chicago Heights or at
the Indiana Dunes State Park. At the latter
place in late May or early June we have found
the beach and the many trails through the Dunes
interesting and inspiring. It is here that the club
is taking its outing for the spring of 1936.

THE MARCONI CLUB
This semester Fenger was again placed upon the
world map in the field of short wave transmis-
sion. The amateur transmitting station located in
room 337, whose call letters are W 9 H M W, was
officially granted its government license when
three members, Fred Swanson, Joe Gypta, Robert
Nelson of the club passed the license examina-
tions early this semester.
Since short wave radio transmission is universal,
the members of the Marconi Club have the facili-
ties for listening in on the conversations of ships
"Oh, boy! Isn't she a beautylv This was one
of 'the comments coming from the forty-seven
members of the Aviation Club, upon looking at
the modern, new airliners at the airport. There
were beautiful low-winged planes that clip
through the air at two hundred and eighty miles
an hour contrasted with the giant planes used
for transportation and mail.
The club was headed by Sam Enochian, presi-
dent, Glenn Bondurant, vice-president, assisted

The equipment which makes it possible for the
club to listen in on these conversations include
two powerful transmitters, one for speech, the
other for radio telegraphy. The receiving set was
built by the members of the club themselves
and is shown in the picture. Mr. W. W. Fotch,

casting scene which has its setting in room 337.

UI-lo, hum, there goes the alarm clock," was
the theme song of the Fenger Astronomy Club
the days when elusive stellar bodies could be seen
only at early morning. When the club wishes to
see a particular star, Bob Swanson, the president,
calls special meetings morning or night. Bob is
backed royally by James Dixon and Geraldine
Bannert, the vice-president and the secretary-
treasurer. These special meetings are made more
interesting when viewed through one of the two
club telescopes. lncidentally, Mr. Mumford, the
able club sponsor, made one of these "scopes',
himself-the result of a long and tedious process
of grinding lenses and mirrors by hand.
The club's regular meetings are divided equally
between talks by club members on the planets
and questions on astronomy. B-y this means the
student members are greatly helped and already
have a good knowledge of our universe. Appar-
ently these students want to know something
about the star to which they "hitch their
"Life is like a stagef' In just such an atmos-
phere, Fenger's Drama Class has lived the past
semester. Indeed, members of the class have be-
come special actors upon the stage of our school
life. Previously interested dramatists were banded
together in a club. This semester, however, a
more stable, more regular group was formed, a
Action began when on Monday, March 2, the
class presented to study 'pupils a "February Pag-
eant" portraying the great days of that month.
Also doing its part in the Youth and Clean Up
Weeks' activities, the class dramatized a short
skit, "The Boy Will,,' a story woven 'round
Shakespeare's youth. Thus, besides partaking of
these events, the class has busied itself in reading
the "History of the Theatre" and studying scene
designing and costumes. All in all, the group has
enjoyed a profitable semester, both educationally
and dramatically. May it ever follow its newly-

policy on the part of the members and their offi-
cers, Wm. Heimann, president, Wm. McGaghie,
vice-president, Robert Yampolsky, secretary,
Robert McGagie, treasurer, has endeavored to
realize its well known aim.
A new plan was put forth by the president
whereby the members of the club could earn
letters. These letters are awarded entirely upon a
point basis, which depends on the members' at-
tendance at all the functions of the club and upon
their services. Under the supervision of the vice-
president, the six main committees planned a
very helpful and enjoyable year for the club. A
few of the social highlights of the semester were
the annual hop, the splash party, a school social,
and a theater party, all of which were enjoyed by
everyone attending. T
Mr. E. F. Young, faculty sponsor, and Mr.
E. W. Scott, Y.M.C.A. sponsor, have furnished
real support to the boys in their upholding of
their high ideals.
As an everlasting inspiration to the Tri-Hi-Y
girls is their beautiful prayer, "May our spirit of
adventure lead us only in the trails once blazed
by Thee. For this give us Thy help." In striving
toward the ideals implied in the prayer, the Tri-
Hi-Yis join together in expressing good sports-
manship and wholesome living. In so doing they
perform various achievements, such as visiting
museums of history, having discussions among the
girls, and gaining recognition in sports-finally
are rewarded for their efforts by attaining the

Synopsis of Scenes
Act I-St. Patrick's Party--March 17.
Act II-Recreation Hour-February 19, March
Act III-Socials-February 26, April 1.
Act IV--Crowning of May Queen-May 7.
Act V-Splash Parties-May 17, May 19.
The time, setting, place, and manner of this
great feature is likely to be found anywhere in
Fenger High School, as the G. A. A. is the largest,
most noted, and most progressive organization in
our school and surrounding schools.
This semester the organization has 1,3 00 mem-
bers, only 160 girls having failed to join. This
great progress was due to the untiring efforts of
the representatives, officers and sponsors, Presi-
dent, Harriet Nilsen, Secretary, Shirley Young,
Treasurer, Betty Erickson. Of course the G. A.
A. would not exist if it weren't for our grand
sponsor and leader, Mrs. Anderson, assisted by
Miss Bulger and Miss Kitzmiller.
Tennis, bowling, pi-ng pong, volley ball and
basketball are a few of the activities that the G.
A. A. offers its members. This semester bicycling
and hiking were added to the long list of clubs.
These proved to be very popular in more than one
way, helping the girls to earn their bars, also help-
ing them to get a little color in their cheeks by
good old "Sol" Outside of the strenuous athletic
functions, the social side is also shown by the
G. A. A. Our two socials, the Crowning of the
May Queen and the St. Patrick's Party are exam-
ples of this type.
The G. A. A. offers so many opportunities for
its members, that one cannot fail to join this
organization. The "enormous sum" of a dime
entitles you to all of these pleasures.
Now up goes the curtain on the semester's
activities of the G. A. A.
St. Patrick's Party fMarch 175
This scene takes place in the girls' gymnasium
on March 17, 'none other than "St. Patrick's Day."
Of course one need not mention the scenery or
Page 1 00
color as ribbons, dresses, bows, hats and sham-
rocks of green adorn the gym. My, how many
girls are all about, laughing, singing, and dancing,
even a waltz contest is conducted and after much
judging the winners are chosen, Valerie Lewis and
Lily Mae Shelvin. The main feature of the party
is that of the girls grouping into teams and dress-
ing one of the members in newspaper. After a
time a style show is held allowing others to see
how their teams work. Hours of fun are spent,
but soon another grand affair ends.
Recreation I-Iour fFeb. 19-April 225
Recreation Hour, a scene where one may find
groups busily and happily playing their favorite
games, such as, ping pong, bowling, or perhaps
shuffle board. The noise of happy voices fill this
scene with enthusiasm. As one looks about, she
can see excitement fully expressed upon faces or
a happy frown possibly because of the score, but
nevertheless, our Recreation Hours prove to be
filled with amusement for everybody.
Socials QFeb. 26, April lj
The strains of delightful music, and the mur-
mur of happy voices are heard as this scene opens.
The girls' Social Hour! Oh, what a colorful sight.
Blondes, brunettes, and red heads, clothing of any
and all colors form the background. This is a
time when we girls have an hour of dancing
alone. But, soon the strains of "Home, Sweet
Home" are heard, and everybody knows at this
time, the social has come to a close.
Crowning of the May Queen, an event we
Seniors have looked forward to, ever since the last
Queen was selected.
A regular May Day feature is held, spring
dances are going on, given by the smaller mem-
bers of the G. A. A. who are all dressed in pastel
shades. The Queen and her attendants, beautiful
scenery, color, and ever so many added attractions
can be seen.
This year Irma Hokanson was chosen Queen,
her court consisting of Dolores Smith, Dorothy
Buckley, Virginia Fallon, Mildred Stern, Helen
Toczyl and Nora Wolf. The sponsors and those
who helped plan this affair are to be congratulated
immensely as this affair is, without a doubt, one
of the most colorful, and pretty features that the
G. A. A. had this semester.
Splash! Splash! This is practically all you can
hear. Races are held, events in diving, a nice
game of ball. Due to the large group of girls,
it is impossible to have all of the girls in the
swimming pool at once, so on May 17, the Seniors
and Juniors held their party, and on May 19, the
Sophomores and Freshmen held theirs.
And down goes the curtain, the close of a happy
semester of G. A. A. activities.
Mario Zanello Richard Vander Meer
Rudolph Mucha B- I I I I I I Harold Fiske
Vice-President Social Chairman
Words of praise are due to our Boys' Athletic
Association, not forgetting their able sponsor,
Mr. Young. The success of such an organization
depends upon the president, Mario Zanello, vice-
president Rudy Mucha, secretary, Richard Van-
der Meer, sergeant-at-arms, Louis Krouse, and
the social chairman, Harold Fiske, and they
already have shown their true spirit.
Baseball, wrestling, indoor and outdoor track,
swimming, handball, horseshoes, tennis, and golf
are the sports included in the program during the
semester. The indoor activities were ushered in
with much enthusiasm, while the outdoor sports
began as soon as "Old Sol" warmed up the atmo-
sphere. Mr. Brill's division room carried away
the football and volleyball honors last semester
while Mr. Hays' division room captured Hrst place
in basketball. Those grunts and groans that were
heard in the boys' gym in the beginning of March
proved the vigorous action on the mat. After
two exciting days, the victors were determined.
The first place winners in the wrestling meet are
as follows: the 100 pound division, Van Valken-
burg, the 108 pound class, Galambos, the 115
pound division "Bumps" Moran, the 145 class,
Carlson, the 15 5 pound division, Zanello, the 165
pound division, Hofstra, in the 175 pound class,
Brooks, and Mucha in the heavyweight division.
Friday, March 25, we saw Fenger's runners,
jumpers and throwers in action. This was the
date set for the B.A.A. indoor track meet, which
was held in the third floor corridor. Kenworthy,
of the Juniors, captured first place in the fifty
and one hundred yard dashes. Other Juniors that
received their gold B.A.A. bars were: Jankowski,
for his fine showing in the potato race, Adams,
winning in the high jump, McCracken, leaping
away with the honors in the three standing broad
jumps, and Stephenson made the farthest put
with the shot. In the Senior division, Scott came
through with flying colors and earned himself two
first-place bars in the fifty and one hundred yard
dashes. Schmidt was the winner in the potato
race for the Seniors. After W. Pearson made a
few strenuous attempts in the high jump busi-
ness, he earned Qby hook or by crookj a gold bar.
Gruzdis was declared the winner in the three
standing broad jump event, while Goucher gets
the honor for winning the shot put event. There
being only one relay team from the Seniors, room
6-511 fthe Juniorsj came out victorious. The
runners in room 6-502 were the brave-spirited
The indoor baseball was being played at the
time of this writing, so the victors were not yet
determined. For the first time in the history of
Fenger's B.A.A., the social committee, under the
chairmanship of Harold Fiske, gave a social. Fri-
day, March 20, was the date set for this gala
event and the school's rhythmic social orchestra
plaved for the enjoyment of all.

Whe'n spring rolled around again the usual call
for baseball candidates was made, with the result
of about fifty boys reporting to Coach Palmer,
who is in charge of the team this year. Among
the candidates were several from last year's team.
These were Luccadello, Hofstra, Payne who re-
cently was elected captain, Opyd, Anderson, and

practice immediately after the call was made, and

THE SWIMMING TEAM
The Fenger Swimming teams, after resting
from competition for a few weeks, were matched
against Morton High School as the season's
opener. The juniors, finishing with a clean record
of nine wins and no losses, again carried off the
shield given in the South Side Swimming League.
The Seniors ended the semester by winning ive
and losing ive. Graduation took some of the old
Senior stand-bys: Shirvis, Metsker, Coole, Oh-
mans, Sehwartzenberg, Apolskis, and Griffin. But
the Juniors filled these ranks and expect to be
Fenger's outstanding swimmers this Semester
are: Allen, Fiske, Haag, the Hofstra brothers,
McCracken, and Schmidt, Juniors. While the
shining men in the Senior division are: Behme,
Budrick, Hickman, and Ilika. These boys expect
to empty any pool on the South Side of its liquid
"aqua pura" by their terrific strokes.
THE TENNIS TEAM
Tennis is one of the new features in Fenger,s
sport curriculum this semester, having Mr. Samp-
son as sponsor. Although this is the first active
team in four years, they anticipate great results.
Before competing against other high schools, the
players tested their skill in a round-robin tourna-
ment. In this tournament each participant plays
every other member on the squad. The one who
wins two out of three sets is declared the winner
of the match. The one winning the most
matches is the winner of the tournament. This
determines the four best players, who shall rep-
resent Fenger in Chicago High School competi-
tion. Through the success of this team, Mr.
Sampson is looking forward to a bigger and better
team for the next season.
THE TRACK TEAM
Coach Wesley Fotch issued the first call for
track candidates early in March, with some thirty
or more speed enthusiasts reporting for the team.
The Juniors have the following in their divisions:
Bergner, Clifford, Derrico, Dixon, Dudzik, Gib-
son, La Fountain, Le Noble, Matheson, Mazurak,
Phillips, Reid, Shobe, Stephenson, Thompson, and
Wilmer. The most prominent seniors are Gou-
cher, Koziocas, Lopez, and Siegel.
Besides competing against all the South Side
Schools, Fenger plans to challenge Englewood,
Harvey, Blue Island, Hyde Park, and Chicago
Heights. Our cindermen participate in all the
dashes, the half-mile, the mile, and shot-put,
high jump, low and high hurdles, and the broad
The final standings of the schools cannot be
determined at the time this Courier went to press
as the schedule had not been completed.
THE WRESTLING TEAM
Starting with great odds, Coach Palmer took
over the task of building up the wrestling team
to what it now is. just a few matmen were left
from last year's team. Captain Galambos, Has-
tings, Anderson, and Mucha are the mainstays.
With the addition of Staci, Blokowicz, Verkinder,
Carlson, Hofstra, and Brooks, a much improved
team has been formed.
Top Row-Coach Palmer, Petro, Lucadello, Hofstra, Nel-
son, Mucha, Fiske, Payne, McHugh, Zanello, Westberg,

Our Titans obtained their positions on the
team by an elimination contest. Most of the boys
have another year at Fenger so it looks as if
we will have another promising squad next se-
mester. This team deserves special mention, hav-
ing won ten meets out of twelve. The finals were
held at the University of Chicago at the end of
the wrestling season, and as was to be expected,
they made a good showing. '

Just as the actors in a stage production bow in
grateful appreciation when the audience applauds
and the curtain falls, so we, the editors of our
production, the Courier, in behalf of the entire
staff wish to express our thanks to those who have
assisted in making this publication a success.
First of all, we give our sincerest expressions of
love and appreciation to Mr. Frederick Schacht,
who was ever willing to help and advise us in
the problems that arose, and gave up valuable time
reading copy. We are completely indebted to Mr.
George Dasher for taking care of the innumer-
able Courier announcements that had to be read
to the divisions, promoting Courier sales, and help
in proof reading. We express our heartfelt thanks
to Mr. George Aiken who read Courier announce-
ments, took charge of the subscription money,
and conducted the drawing of the winning tickets
in our contest.
Rosters, literary material, and other informa-
tion had to be gathered from the Branches. The
cooperation received from the Branch principals,
Mr. Louis Cook, Miss Marian Moran, Miss Cleo-
patra Wilson, and the faculty is deeply appre-
ciated, as is their assistance in picture taking and
The beautiful designs that adorn the pages of
this book are the result of many hours of work
put in by the Courier Art Class under the able
supervision of Miss Marlin. They are to be highly
commended for their achievements. A vote of
thanks is due Mr. Koerner and Mr. Zinngrabe for
their assistance to the cartoonist, the business
managers, and advice on the poster work: K '
Space does not 'permit us to give sufficient
thanks to Miss Marie McCutcheon for services so
unselfishly given by her and her classes. This
valuable assistance, so cheerfully rendered, light-
ened considerably our work and that of the typ-
ists. Those days of picture taking would have
been much more hectic had not Mr. Claude
Smitter once again come to our assistance in man-
aging the students. We can never thank him
enough for his help. To check the large amount
of statistical information necessitated many trips
to the office where the ever-ready help of the
clerks, Miss Schmid, Miss McKenna, and Mrs.
Campbell straightened out our difhculties.
The task of selecting the prize-winning contri-
butions in our Literary Contest was undertaken
by Mrs. Stephens, Miss Lundquist, Mrs. Werth-
eim, Miss Stevens, Mrs. Forqueran, Miss Thomas,
Miss Solomon, Miss Randall, Miss Milburn, Mr.
Smitter, Miss Edinger, and Miss Blachly, who
acted as judges. We thank them. Their choices
The faculty have also done their part by back-
ing sales, and allowing time in divisions for talks
by Staff members. The sponsors of the various
clubs gave necessary information for write-ups.
Mrs. Jessie Anderson and Mr. Frank Young are
to be included in our praises for their help on the
G.A.A. and B.A.A. pages respectively. Another
page for the R.O.T.C. was added and Sergeant
Robinson's advice was sought many times. We
are deeply indebted to Miss Ruth W. Robinson's
English Class for undertaking the responsibility
of compiling Branch write-ups. Mr. Kehoe, be-
sides helping us in many countless ways, printed
the tickets for picture taking. Mr. Hays Wrote
an interesting article for the Junior Citizens. Mr.
Trimble and Miss Lusson helped us out immense-
ly by providing the music for our assemblies. Mr.
Van Scoyoc made the attractive deposit box used
in the contest. In preparing for our assembly,
Mr. Beals was called upon many times for advice
and assistance, for which we are most grateful.
Mr. Reich aided in the taking of pictures. Many
thanks are due Mr. Ernest Lange for taking care
of the money and helping the financial managers
with the accounts. We are thankful for the pub-
licity we received from Miss Mildred Taylor and
the News Staff. Hardly a week slipped by with-
out articles in the Fenger News regarding the
Just as the box office receipts of a play deter-
mine its success, so the success of the Courier de-
pends upon the sales. Therefore we now take the
opportunity to thank the student body for sup-

A number of Fengerites, although not on the
staff, are to be thanked for their services. Boni-
face Lopez made several posters. George Lykow-
ski, Tony Margala, and Harold von Horn helped
in obtaining advertisements. Too, Eileen Vaughn
is to be thanked for her fine musical contribu-
This semester we have tried, if possible, to make
our ad section more interesting, and if We have
succeeded, it is due to the support given us by
our advertisers. Because we have received coop-
eration and support from such a great number of
people, it is impossible to mention all of their
names. Therefore to those who have not been
mentioned in this acknowledgement, but who
have contributed their services, we can only say
-"thanks a millionf,
And now, finally, comes the time when We
must try to express the deep respect, appreciation,
and admiration that is in our hearts for Miss Ruth
W. Robinson, our helpful guide and friendly ad-
viser. Without her help, encouragement, consul-
tations, and untiring efforts, this semester's Cour-
ier would never have been a success. The experi-
ence gained in working under her guidance, will
certainly make us more efficient and better actors
on life's hard stage.
At a double assembly program, Robert Smitter
won first place over Jean Svendsen, Virginia
Fieldhouse, Marion Gordon, and Lorraine Lyons.
the other contestants in the Washington Essay
Another successful assembly was given by the
Fenger News Staff, with Correll Julian announcing
the acts. The staff kept the student body enter-
tained with a play, a piona duet, singing by the
Campbell sisters, and a violin solo. Robert Yam-
polsky gave the closing speech.
A "lovely time was had by all" who attended
the Hi-Y social. Many of the Fengerites danced
to the rhythmic music of the social orchestra. The
birthdays of Virginia Fallon and Evelyn Prosich
were announced and "Happy Birthday" was sung.

"Bob!" cried Jane. "Did you go to the B. A. A.
social? Well, you missed the time of your life.
The efficient committee under Harold Fiske, chair-
man, really must be complimented on their splen-
The Glee Club gave another successful social.
It was the first social of the semester to be given
in the Boys' Gym. The chaperones were Miss
McIfartlin, Miss Lusson, and Miss McCutcl'1eon.
In a distance we hear the faint sound of music
coming from the Girls' Gym. Shall we go in?
Why, it's the library social. Tickets are being
taken by a couple of the assistants, while Miss
Fluke looks on. They are going to buv library
books with the money made on the social.
For the first time in the history of any high
school, as far as we know, an amateur show was
staged at Fenger. It was really surprising to see
the talent possessed by the Fenger students. We
want to compliment Mr. Beals, who was in charge
of the show, Mrs. Anderson, who chose the
dancers, Miss Lusson, who selected the singers,
Mr. Reich, in charge of the novelties, Mr. Trim-
ble, of the orchestra, Mr. Burnham, of the band,
Miss Shine, Miss Solomon, and Miss Plummer,
who managed the ticket sales. They are buying
uniforms for the Band with the splendid profits
The Tri Hi-Y girls sold candy, the income from
which is going toward these uniforms.
The R. O. T. C. Ball was a striking picture.
Many of the boys were dressed in their uniforms,
and the girls in flowing semi-formals. The gym
was decorated in blue crepe paper, colored lights,
and balloons. Those present danced to the music
of Joe Beemster and his orchestra.
The Marconi Club had something new in the
line of entertainment at their social. A demon-
stration of how a transmitter works was given
by Joe Gypta and Fred Swanson. The club has
planned to buy a 165-watt crystal control trans-
mitter and a 160-meter phone with the profits
from this social.
A performance that pleased everyone this
semester was the Courier Assembly. The assembly
was given to arouse interest in the book, and to
re-enact the theme of our Courier, the theater.
The periods were enacted as follows: The first was
the Roman feast, the second, a morality play, the
third, a melodrama, the fourth, a scene from
"Taming of the Shrewng and the last, from the
modern play, "Roberta" The music was furnished
by Eileen Vaughn, Miss Lusson's double quar-
tette, who sang "Drink to Me Only with Thine
Eyes," and Mr. Trimble's Senior Orchestra.
Lovely girls in lovely gowns, and handsome
boys in white flannels and dark coats was the
picture of Fenger's Prom, the gala event of the
semester. We want to thank the 4B class and
the P. T. A. for a grand prom. It was led by our
Mayor, Marvin Flora, followed by the 4A class
officers, 4B class oflicers, and the committees.

The Great Detective sat in his office. He wore
a long, greenigown with a half dozen secret
badges pinned on it. Three or four pairs of false
whiskers hung on a whisker-stand beside him.
A pile of letters lay on the desk. The Detec-
tive opened one after another, solved them and
threw them in the Waste basket.
There was a rap at the door. The Detective
wrapped himself in a pink robe and put on a pair
of false whiskers.
"Come in," he said. His secretary entered.
"Sir," he said, "a mystery has been committed.
The police are lyi-ng in heaps, many of them col-
lapsed, and others committed suicide."
The Great Detective said, "Wrap yourself in
this disguise and find out what the mystery is
Soon he came back with great excitement cry-
ing, "The Prince of Wales has been kidnapped!"
"A prince stolen!" said the Great Detective as
TURNING BACK THE TIME
How many times have you wondered what
the result would be if it were possible to turn back
the time and bring the past forward? What un-
known interesting, startling facts would come to
light. Perhaps even recalling one's own early life,
presumably uninteresting, would produce enough
material for an interesting story. We do this
remarkable stunt quite regularly, though un-
knowingly. We are also but little aware of what,
if put into script, our thoughts would.reveal.
Many of us as children had very different char-
acteristics, or ones similar, to those of the present.
Some of these prevailed and became prominent,
others were overcome and disappeared. Looking
back on the past is very much like rummaging
through a trunk containi-ng relics. Here you can
find, as when exploring your memory, remnants
of the past. In one corner is discovered a photo-
graph album. It too, like the memories of those
whose picture comprise it, havelived through all
the changes of its age to the present.
Even one having a gifted tongue would have
a difficult job before him were he to attempt to
lay bare all the possibilities of recalling the past.
Turning back rhc time is therefore not so diffi-
cult as one might believe. It is merely the act of
recalling the past. I-n short, anyone having a
fairly good tongue and the ability to concentrate
can turn back the time. ,

his mind began to move like lightning. "Stop,"
he cried, "how do you know this?', The secre-
tary handed him a telegram from the police,
which said "5I,000 reward for the finding of the

It was a Prime Minister who wished to add

FENGER IN THE SPRING'
Gone is the cold wind's dismal sigh.
And the hungry sparrow's cry, Q
Instead the early robin's song
Through our day cheers us along.
Gone is the dull atmosphere
That haunted all our classrooms
Now the azure skies appear
When old Sol his duty assumes.
Gone is the blasting, biting cold
That made us playfully scold
The one who forgot to shut,
The door to Jack's frozen hut.
Now soft breezes gently play
On the pretty lassies' tresses,
As tripping along the way
We go to Fenger's recesses.-
The periods drag wearily past
And many a look is cast
To the sweet, scented outside
Where natural beauties reside.
And when the day is thru
Many sports now claim our spare
As skating, cycling we pursue
Joy in the beautiful Spring air.

But ask the American what he croons.
It won't be a selection from Brahms,
Or those fascinating psalmsg
It probably will be a treat
Like "She's my baby, ainlt she sweet?"
Jane Jenkinson, sweet thing,
How wonderfully you sing.
Now don'r start in to croon
An operatic or classical tune,
But let that voice of yours ring
With songs that have a little swing.
Mucha dashes down the field
With Anderson behind,
Who tackles him from the end
Before he reaches the line.
Zanello upo-n the scene, appears
To do a thorough iob.
Yampolsky happens then along
Not knowing what to do,
So, he decides to take a rest
And sits upon them toog
Kind, gentle Greco noting all this
Calls an ambulance.
Perhaps that explains why
They're always in a trance.
