Or if that were not possible, how would like to look back to that period and watch its early life? It is a scfientific fam' ihat, owing to the velocity of light-136,000 miles per second-if 3 person were on a star, say about a billion miles away, he could, by looking down on our earth, see what was happening there several hundred years ago, since it would take that long for the light from the earth to reach him. 1Vell, then, suppose we were on a star at some distance away, so that we could watch the happenings on our earth a quarter of a century ago? Since it can be done iso we thinky let us put the telescope to our eye and look in the direction of the earth. On December 10, 1895, the Central Board of Education enters into the focus of the lens. XVe can watch them discuss the plans for a new high school, and then decide to lease a lot on Fifth Avenue on the site of the market house. They lease the lot-200 feet front and 120 feet on the side- for a term of 99 years in consideration of one dollar. Wie notice nothing of importance until March 13, 1894 when Mr. Edward Stotz is selected as the architect. lt is not until another meeting that we see the board adopt his plans. On July 24, 189-l, the XVilson Construction Co. receives the job of erect- ing the school building, which they formally turn over to the board May 12. 1896. At the formal turning over of the building we can read editorials in the newspapers to the effect that this building was erected at a cost of 37,500 below the original estimate. Everyone is praising this efficiency. Follow- ing this outburst of favorable comment, we see through our glass architects and other notables, from all over the country, view the wonderful building- the last word in modern school structures. Bring the telescope nearer to your eye, for we are going to get thg first glimpse of the interior of the school. XYe,see that everything in the build- ing is modern, efficient, and beautiful. Starting from the basement, we see that Fifth is the first school in Pittsburgh in which the air is washed before it is sent into the rooms. Wlithin the space that now constitutes the ma- chine shops, is located the supplies for all the city schools. Coming to the first floor, where are now the shop and drawing rooms, there are five rooms used as a training school. Here is adequate accommodations for over two hundred small children, who are taught two weeks by each girl of the nor- mal department, who is in her last year. XX'here are now the cooking and the sewing rooms, we see the offices of the lloard of Education. They use the Special gnu-ance, which is beside the main one Know removedfl The two upper floors are occupied by the normal department, the rest by the com'- mercial department. Let us now point the telescope on the personnel of the school. First of all, we see Mr. C. B. Xkood, director of the three city high schools lFifth, s fl it iii' FIFTH AVENUE HIGH SCHOOL .-1? 1, , , f 1-X ww Q3 . J jg Q z 5, H V fl, - ' ' ' . 'i ff 1.

Turning to the High School Journal, put out by the three high SC110O1s. lwhich, by the way also began its career this yearl, we notice ftlllfll-lg the faculty of Central High, the following teachers: Dr. Qgden, Bliss Lewis, Miss lloskinson, Miss Dougherty, Miss Xxiffldlllilll, fklrs. Tfillllllflflhlv Mr. Burtner, and Mr, Rynearson. rNow don't attempt to calculate their ages, or welll turn the telescope away.J .-Xmong those who came to Fifth during the first year are Miss Dougherty, Mr. Ogden, Miss Moore, Mf- fi. T. Stahl tdeceasedl. and Klr. McDonald lcustodianfl The number of Students during the first year is nearly 'JOO Know 13003 1 and those who thlllk that 150 is a large graduating class. ought to note that at the end of the first year fgraduations were held every -lunel 96 were graduated from Fifth. Let us concentrate our trusty telescope on the students themselves. AS we noticed before, the school is divided into parts, the commercial students and the normal. Neither group mingles or interferes with the other. They occupy separate rooms, and even separate floors. They use separate en- trances and exits. They use separate stairways-the normals using the east stairway and the commercials, the west. The incoming normals hear of the stringent rules which should govern their actions, such as receiving four demerits for speaking to a commercial boy, and a greater number for being seen on their floor. fklow would you like this now, girls?l Neither can they meet or mingle during the lunch period, for everyone eats his lunch in his respective room. 4The present lunch room is only about eight years oldj Suppose we watch a typical day. The students begin work at nine o'clock, :Xt the end of each period twhich lasted one hourij they assemble themselves in single file and march, as a whole body, to the next room. Re- garding the file, the students march in the order of their average in scholar- ship, i. e., the student making the highest average in a room, marches at the head of the line, and so on down to the last. Instead of the students of one room dispersing in all directions as they do now, each class as a whole marches to the next room, there being no elective system of studies. Of course OLII' method is more democratic: but you must admit that there was order in the halls during intermission. .-Xgain, instead of having an honor roll, we can see posted on the walls of the hall, the averages of each student in the school, lNew averages appear monthly.J School dismisses at 2:30. Those who are hoping that some day Fifth will have a gymnasium. can perhaps be encouraged t?l by noting that the first students also noticed the lack of one. Since the space on the fourth floor fnow occupied bv Miss Delo and Mr. lionhaml is merely an unfinished attic, the lloard tif Education con- gidel-5 equipping it as a gymnasium, but since the cost would be S5,0U0- mm, drop the matter temporarily Nj. 4 Do you think you have hard subjects to master now? U0 you notice, through the glass, that EVERYONE has to take algebra and geometry? And also elocution? Do you notice that besides teaching physics and physiogra- phy, Dr, Ogden teaches also geology and astronomy? That room t-lOOj that we now use for a study room, or for orchestra rehearsal, or for assembly, is 1 TNQ in . 'Y L35 , . ' Q4131 t 7 -1-.-A-.,m4.,,s.w .-.asv-ncaa, FIFTH AVENUELlFE 7 used exclusively as a lecture room, for the science classes. You see now why the seats have a broad right arm? lt makes it convenient for the students to take notes. See that space which is now occupied by the lantern? That is Doc's office. and room 407 is used for laboratory work only. The chemical and physical laboratories reflect credit upon Doc, who planned them. Doc, as you see, is also active in other lines. He organizes the Orthochrys Liter- ary Society. and is guardian of it for about twelve years. Do you notice how the students are classified? They are not called Us lO's, ll's, or lZ's. but D's, Cs, ll's, or A's. You students, who fear an easy test once in awhile, don you see why these normal and commercial students fail to receive their diplomas? XVell, their average for the final "exam" is below SO per cent and 75 per cent respectively. Where were the commencement exercises held? Turn your telescope on Carnegie Music Hall. Notice that out of ten speakers on the program. eight represent the academic students and two the normal. Xlihy no com- mercials? Only the academics completed a full four-year term and so they were privileged to have eight speakers. The normals with a three-year term could have two representatives: but since the commercials just attended two years, they were not represented. fXN'ouldn't these academics have been more considerate had they but known that the most successful present bankers, and about seventy per cent of the present teachers of Pittsburgh were gradu- ated from Fifth?ij One last look. See that goose-pond across the street? That is where the boys now buy their pastry during the lunch period. Let us now lay aside our kind telescope, come down to earth, and reflect over our own school life. Abi? GYOClHCF- I X V'7'1'1- -.-- 'iii' ,z A v 3 ' - .,. :Ti L A .

FRED G. MASTERS Guardian Ve clh??-1-,f FIFTHAVENUELIFE 13 what me maint Zlinr Zlitftli Lfontained herein is the concrete expression of ourgno, not good wishes, for they are more than that-our dreams for the Alina Mater from which we are about to depart. It is our sincere hope that this abstract thing we have to offer, Fifth, this very outpouring of our feeling for you, will be 21 lasting memorial to our class. First, then, we desire for you the best school magazine of its kind- a magazine super-excellent in all its departments, teeming with new ideaS, efficiently managed by staffs to come, supported by and representative of the entire school-in short, the "Life" of Fifth. Wie have struggled hard. and, if any poor degree of success be accorded our "Life," we communicate the wish that it may be duplicated for future magazines a hundred-fold. Secondly, we want a 'tradition firmly established among colleges and busi- ness firms that your graduates are thoroughly equipped, that they are ear- nest, ambitious, conscientious workers, and men and women of sterling char- acter. XYe can strive to bring this dream to at least partial realization. This tradition will lead to a demand for your graduates, which will gradually react to your credit. Our third wish is that you m-ay maintain that prowess in athletics 'which it has been our good fortune to see you achieve in our short sojourn here. May this prowess be extended to all athletic activities in which you engage rather than be confined to those in which you were recently so successful. And what is more important still, ma yyour name aways suggest the highest type of sportmanship wherever it is heard. For your clubs and activities, Fifth, we desire a roseate outlook and a more comprehensive scope of activity. To the Honor Society that is to be, especially do we dedicate our hope that it may create greater enthusiasm for things intellectual-vitalize, as it were, that part of your life which makes for real intellectual fibre. Increased efficiency and a clarified vision of its tremendous possibilitieg in forming that public opinion by which conduct can be controlledgthese are our wishes for the Student Government which has accomplished so much in its short life. In general, Fifth, we dream of higher standards of scholarship, 21 greater sincerity of manliness and womanliness among the student body, as well as sufficient renumeration and encouragement for the faculty to enable them to devote their best efforts to you. And, finally, in passing, we leave a serious wish that that subject of so much amusement-the prospective gymnasiumfmay be bestou ed upon you within the reign of the next senior class.

A f .XTILIJA SIEGAL EDITORIALS The passing of the june 1921 class from Fifth Avenue will mark the twenty-fifth anniversars' of the high school. During the last quarter of a century Fifth, first known as Pittsburgh High School, has RETROSPECT ranked as one of the most progressive educational institu- tions of its kind and one of the most vitalizing' in its force. Founded at a time when only the rare son of a laboring man was affordedithe opportunity of a secondary education, Fifth has been an active agent in the transition that has led from the now archaic classical high school to the pres- ent day cosmopolitan and vocational secondary school. ' lVithin the past twenty-five years the city of Pittsburgh has taken rank as the workshop of the world. It can hardly be said that the to the great increase in the secondary schools should the credit of this standing be attrib- utedg it can be well said, however,thatmany of this city's influential executiveg are graduates of this school. The training they received at Fifth came at the formative period of their lives when their Ch?11'?lC'CCl' and View Of life were 11.1" W . yqii I ,,M .,,,..I stein!! -'i 'vii i'l 1 1 tmgw. .M fwfr 56 FIFTH AVENUE LIFE obtained. The municipality has been the gainer in receiving th6S6 Capable people. Even greater than the work of imparting the essentials of a S:uCCQSafL1l career in the different walks of life, has been Fifth's influencc 111 gwmg training in citizenship. In a most appropriate district, it is this high school's work to give the youth of foreigners or of their children the meaning of CIYICS, government, American institutions and the fundamentals of true A-Xiner1Can1SIH. Sons and daughters of foreign born residents have, in turn, sent their off- spring here, and these children have thereby come into a full realization.of what America and her institutions really stand for. Fifth has been an active agent in the most vital process of perpetuating America by E1SSl1Ull?ltlll3' PCOPIS with foreign leanings and connections. In conclusion, let it be borne in mind that despite the fact that Pittsburgh is today one of the most cosmopolitan municipalities in the country, it is like- wise one ofthe most homogeneous. Our interests are identical whether we be Russian, Greek, Italian, Pole or what not. Our institutions are open to all alike and it is primarily in the high schools that true Americanism is born. VVith this thought uppermost in mind it can readily be seen what a powerful vitalizing force for the city has been during the last quarter century-Fifth Avenue High School. Wle have reached the end of the pathwayg we are confronted with the impassive, impenetrable wall which separates our high school life from the vague, much conjectured something which lies beyond. No STANDING stile leads over the barrier. XYe must take it at one leap, a ON TIPTOE leap which will deposit us safely in the new field of endeavor. At present, we approach the wall, rise on tiptoe, and peer over. This brief glimpse reveals-what? XVhat are the seeds, the tools, and the product to be found in this new field? XVe peer over. Here lie the seeds of ambition, carefully protected from wanton waste. Further on, is the implement of opportunity, sharpened and oiled for immediate use. In the dim distance are visible fields of billowy-grain, the product of well-planted carefully tilled ambition and the judicious use of opportunity. That produc- tion is service. We turn away. Is it worth while? Such a long time must elapse be- tween planting-time and harvest. Our first crop may fail. Those of us who continue in preparation may have to wait for six or eight years before results come, and even then the service rendered may be slight. XVe who 0'o into the 6 -5 commercial struggle may strive several years to throw off competition, and fail. Again our attention is arrested. IVe rise on tiptoe and take a last look at the waving grain. It IS worth while. This seed shall be sown in good soil and tended with never-rusting tools. Commencement will bring to the class of june nineteen twenty-one the opportunity to leap teh wall into the land of promise. Hilda XYuerthele ' x . Q. , Ky, -' 'Q -- , 'ix .sity I Jyv- , I . FIFTH AVENUE LIFE 57 The world has just experienced a terrible convulsion, and is now rav- ished by those despicable conditions which tend to agitate and irritate the people. In the United States, the governmental A REMEDY FOR conditions which concern the people directly are UNREST-COlVIMUN- so misunderstood that the mighty wings of dis 'PTY CENTERS ...... content and unrest are rapidly spreading over the country. Furthermore, numerous organizations are conspiring daily against the government, mainly among the uneducated classes. Conditions are arising constantly which afford these treacherous societies the opportunities to continue their destructive work. Here in Pittsburgh, menacing and misleading propaganda is distributed frequently at night in every hall and vestibule in the sections occupied main- ly by foreign born. Although this literature reaches all classes, it seizes within its powerful clutches those only who have not been instructed and trained to defend the fundamental principles and ideals of the government of the United Sta-tes. NVe cannot tolerate such loathsome actions much longer, lest a fatal climax be attained. XVe 'must set up an opposition. The simplest and most practical solution is education. In order to educate the people, we must first bring them together in a common meeting place. 'llhere is no community center in the district in which I live and from continuous observations, I have realized the resulting conditions and the general effect upon the community. A community is as helpless without a community center as an army without a leader, There is an urgent need of meeting places for all the people. School buildings, especially, which are accessible to all, could be obtained fequently for this imperative task. Regular meetings could be held with well planned and inspiring programs. Entertainments could be so arranged as to actually attract people. Prominent speakers could give their messages on govern- mental questions, while lessons on Aimericanisrm and good-citizenship could also be taught. The students of the Pittsburgh Schools could render themselves ex- tremely helpful in this immense undertaking. Short addresses could be delivered as well as patriotic poems. Incidents in American history could be portrayed, so that the significance of the event may be impressed more thoroughly. Throughout the year, national holidays could be celebrated patriotically. In the course of a few months, the people would become so informed as ,to resist and defy the traitorous work of the deadly enemies of our Re- public, While we would be thus taking an upward course in our patriotic aim, we would also be improving social conditions, for friendship and good will would prevail. By this, cooperation in governmental affairs would be achieved, and we should soon be on the road to reconstruction. The general welfare of our people and of our communities now rests upon our shoulders. The time for immediate action has come. Does it not seem reasonable that my suggestion offers a suitable beginning? George I-I. Smith. ig -M-l fY-- - .. .. , K , ex .

We hear of "tr1CkS BUSINESS HONOR of the trade," without which. merchants protest, success is impossible. XVe read of adulterated flour, of sanded sugar and of tainted food. XVe are aware of watered stocks. Of get-rich-quick concerns and of "marking-up" to mark down prices. D Here is an illustration of a frequent occurrence. Recently, a C'6r'E2l1H kind of men's wearing apparel was displayed in a down-town store window and was marked at sixty dollars. A change of season caused the merchant to wish to get rid of this article and he ordered that it should be reduced to forty-five dollars. However, the price tag did not read forty-five dollars, formerly sixty dollars, which would mean an actual saving of fifteen dollars, but instead, the card read forty-five dollars, formerly ninety dollars. One can readily see that it was a Utrickl' based on knowledge of human nature. There are men who make their money in crooked ways. They succeed, or at least. seem to succeed, in spite of their crookedness. Particularly now, there is a certain group of persons, who are'massing great fortunes. Do they stop to consider whether or not they are gaining it by honorable meth- ods? lYould one change places with them? Surely, no self-respecting man or woman would dream of exchanging places with those who make their money, their position or their names in such a manner. A few months ago, the world was shocked, in reading' of a man who had really refused a million dollars, his legitimate birthright. Accounts of this incident were widespread, some editors denounced his action, others com- mended it. XYhy did he do this? Because the money was not earned through ways that were clean.. Yet, it is just as natural to denounce him as it is to commend him, when we think of the infinite good that he could have contributed to society, from which it was not uprightly earned. Deeds like this one are rare, his decision portrayed the character of an unusual man. Should these facts be insignificant? XYithout morals, we are lost and if we are to progress as a nation or as individuals, we cannot have one standard of morality for the home and another for our commercial enterprise. Julius Arfield. Good sportsmanship is undeniably conducive to good citizenship. lt should be our aim to be good citizensg are we good SPORTSMANSHIP sportsmen? 'Have we ever stopped to think where we stand on this important question? Are we good losers, and do we realize and exercise our responsibilities when either par- ticipating in or attendng an inter-school contest? Duties do belong to any lover of scholastic sports when he attends 3 game. XVhether or not athletic competition between high schools continues, rests upon his exercising good judgment and true sportsmanship by proper behavior. .X few of the first principles of sportsmanship which were violat- ed during the closing school athletic year were the ones regarding proper ,NX X fziq..

No statement as to whether we students of Fifth were worse than others in disobeying' these rules will be ventured here, but the facts remain that our reputation has not been bettered during the last year, nor is it as' good as it ought to be. Our manner of showing resentment at times showed that we have not fully developed that sense of fairness which al- lows us to bear without protest things which rightfully go against us. At thi stime when Fifth is at the height of her athletic period a reputation for good sportsmanship would be easiest acquired. Let us in the future as players and fans take our position with more seriousness know- ing that it is on exhibition for Fifth Avenue High School. Our ability to publish "Life" is mostly the result of aid received from our patrons, those whose advertisements are PATRONIZE 'HHOSE contained in this book. Witliotit their help WHO PATRONIZE US we could not pay for making this journal. In order to pay our indebtedness to our present patrons, and in order to show others that it pays to advertise in "Life," we rnust patronize our advertisers. Look over the ads in this book and find out who our advertisers are. VVhen considering a purchase in any branch of business represented in our ads, give preference to our own advertisers. They are your friends. Be sure to tell them that you noticed their ad in "Fifth Avenue Life", for that is the only way in which they may be informed that their ad is bringing results. As a matter of school spirit patronize our patrons. Business Manager. The dividing line between poor and good work is fair work. E repre sents work that is a failure, D, work that is passing, and C, work that is satisfactory. At present too many are on the dividing THE line or are failures. According to the last report DIVIDING LINE there were 306 failures, which is many times greater than it should be. The cause of these failures is "stick- ing" on the dividing line. VVe cannot stand still. We must either advance to C work or fall back to E work. There are too many who are satisfied with merely passing in their work. They should remember that although their work is passing', it it not satisfactory. A D should appear more for- midable than an E because more dangerous. XVhen we get an E we know that we shall fail unless we do better. D leads us to think that we are doing better work than we are and we are deceived into thinking that the danger point is past. Thinking that we are safe, we do not work as hard as if we had an E and consequently we fall behind in our work. Therefore the danger point is not E 'but D. The dividing line is no place to park our am- bitions Cvery small ambition it is to be contented with a DJ The danger point, D, should spur us on to do better work, but it seems to be a rule that we do poorer.

Indeed. many of our girls at Fifth would en- joy belonging to such a club so that they could show their interest and render help in civic affairs- They now have a part in the government of their country and many of them want to be- gin right away to prepare themselves for this duty. The work of a Junior Civic Club would be to learn the problems in con- nection with rendering service to the city, to study the lives of those men who are at the head of our city and federal government, to read and study about all the great men and be able to know our own minds in dis- tinguishing between the right and the wrong in our government, and to prepare us in general for the task of governing our country, which in a few years from now will be in our hands. Much interest has been manifested in this club in the other high schools. I am sure Fifth students would also enjoy the opportunity of belonging to a Junior Civic Club. Freda Cohen. OUR CLUBS There has been agitation for some time to cease publishing pictures of our various clubs in "Life" The T935- on given, and it is true to a large ex- tent, is that many students join these societies only with the object of seeing their pictures in the publication. It is the opinion of the writer that the fault lies mainly in the failure to ac- quaint the juniors with the purposes and character of the various clubs. For some reason or other the students don't get this "inside dope" until they become seniors, thus giving rise to the suspicion that they join only for the resulting publicity. The activities of our Math Club, Tech Club, Literary Society, etc., are interesting, instructive and tend to create a keener interest on the part of the student in his work. It should be the duty of each club to acquaint ALL students with its purposes and its val- ue. To do this effectively all our so- cieties should periodically inaugurate a publicity campaign. Herman Berglass. LATIN "XYhy study Latin ?,' is a thought XVhich you will find far from rare: 'Tis true that it's no mother tongue For nations anywhere. llut when you go to places famed, Among them Spain and Rome, You'll have their tongue and history 'Vo help you feel at home. ix l F I F T H Let me tell you something, dear, That language is not dry: If you will study Latin well. Youyll know the reason why. It's a great help to your English If that's your missing link. But the most important thing it does, Is teach you how to think. Anna Chapkis lOl? A SUGGESTION Do you remember when you first entered school and Mr. Rynearson promised, or rather, prophesied that we would have our own "gym" with- in our school stay? It was a nice dream, but like many dreams has not become a reality. The Board of Edu- cation can not see its way clear to AVIS NUE LIFE 61 providing the building for us because labor is too high and for other reas- ons. Mr. Chellman, however, has planned a structure which, although only a temporary building, could serve the purpose splendidly until the Board could build a permanent building. He has figured out that the expense would not be great. Now to make a strong- er appeal to the Board-why wouldn't it be a good scheme to have the boys of this school dig and build the foun- dation for such a building? The exer- cise which we get out in the lot might be easily dispensed with. To many it is only a waste of time. Real, con- structive work would be of much great er benefit and at the same time would bring our dream closer to reality. Herman Berglass. LIFE LINES "To The General Nuisance.

That last word reminds us that it is exactly a quarter of a century since the pupils of the high school began to look forward to a gym built there. Lack of attention will likely result in detention.

XVe can enjoy life only be taking an interest in life. VVe are educated not to make money, but to make a livelihood and to enjoy the short space of time we have on earth. Time may bring sorrows, but never evils to those who are truly educated. The study which most develops our power of enjoying life is English. English teaches us to express our thoughts properly, to write correct forms, to use parliamentary law, to reason for ourselves, and how to become good citizens. lt is largely through our English work that we determine what vocation we shall pursue upon graduation. Tlhis is not all. Through English we gain a knowledge of customs, history, geography, conditions of living, and the lives and struggles of great men. Besides this, it gives us a taste for good literature, art, and music. The result of all these broadening influences is an inspiration to do something that is really worth while. Une important form of training that we derive from this subject is the power of reasoning for ourselves. This power is slowly but surely developed if we diligently apply ourselves to the work we do in this subject. It is im- possible to read with any intelligence the literature that we are required to read unless we do some reasoning. Our memories are filled with such thoughts as the following from one of Emerson's essays: 'Since neither now nor yesterday began These thoughts, which have been ever. nor yet can A man be found who their first entrance knew." The first time we read these lines we fail to perceive their meaning. But we read them over carefully a second time and then a third. The more we consider them the greater the meaning grows. Is it not thrilling to realize that the thoughts we have of love, beauty, service, humanity, and the like are not original with us but that perhaps some of the greatest men that ever lived had just such thoughts? Are we not amply rewarded for the time we take to think about t'his? l English teaches us how to be good citizens. In the essays we read, we learn the principles of democracy and the requirements necessary for good citizenship. If we apply what is found in the lectures and speeches of XVash- ington, Lincoln and XVilson, we can not help being good Americans. As I said before, it is this subject that first brings before us the necessity of choosing a life work. VVhen we first write a theme on this subject, there may be doubt in our minds as to what we shall choose: but as we have to write something we write on the vocation that interests us most. After studying this profession, we decide either that it is the one that we are best fitted for, or that we are unqualified for. If the choosing of our vocation were the only thing we accomplished, then it would repay us for all our work. Again, English deals with the best of the world's literature. NVhat has literature done and what does it do for us? Literature brought about all the great reforms, fgvolutions, social and political changes. The greatest of all if - .-.. . ff' X , .4 . il v ' ' -1 l ' ., tying.. 6+ FIFTH AVENUE LIFE I11OVenients, the Revival of Learning. was brought about principally bf' mer' ature. One of the chief causes of the Renaissance was the invention of the printing-press. The printing-press made it possible for all to read. AS SCIOII as books became comparatively cheap, we notice a great reform in social, political. and religious relations. Such men as liurke, Gladstone, and ,TOIUISOH were instrumental in the working out of reforms. The WO1'kS of Lowell, lYhittier, and Horace Greeley greatly agitated the feeling against slavery which finally resulted in Civil XVar. XYe can trace every reform to some liter-- ary work. g lYe also take new interest in life and nature. If Dickens could find so great an interest in humanity as his books indicate, or 'XVordsworth could find nature as beautiful as he pictures it, is there not something that we are missing if we can not derive the same pleasure? XYe never realize how beautiful nature is until some great poet points it out to us. "In the golden lightning Of the sunken sun O'er which clouds are brightening, Thou dost float and seem, Like an unbodied joy whose race is just begunf' After reading poetry like this we try to find the real beauty in nature and in man. YVe obtain something valuable from every good book that we read, be cause it develops our character and personality. After we read the master- pieces of great authors, we become unable to read with pleasure the trashy stuff that is now being turnsd loose on the market- "Money and time are the heaviest burdens of life, and the unhappiest of all mortals are those who have more of either than they know how to use." English is the remedy for these two great eveils. Nobody can be truly successful or really enjoy life if he has not developed a taste for good literature. The only persons who do not believe this are those whose only aim in life is to become rich. They slave early and late to attain their am- bition and eventually if thCy slave hard enough, they succeed, but their money never brings satisfaction and happiness. It brings only new ambitions. new cares, and new worries. The student of books has read enough from es- says, proverbs, and treatisws, and has observed enough in his experience to know the penalties inflicted for the misuse of money. Those who are prop- erly educated always have more to do than they have time in which to do it. Since time is so valuaible is it not fitting that we should be taught how best to employ it. However, the work we do in school is but a foretaste of what should come. Uur work in Engl-ish should be of such a character that we would not be satisfied to stop with the limited reading we do here. This work but prepares us to read and enjoy good books from the time we leave school tu the time we draw our last breath.

So -Timmy determined to sacrifice his adenoids in order to retain his friends. Thus it happened that .limmy arranged with the doctor to remove the objections in his nasal extremity. Thus also did it happen that -Iimmy made a personal canvass of all his friends and acquaintances in order to ascertain thfir experience in the removal of tonsils and adenoids tsomehow the tivo seemed to be rClated.J For -Iimmy had no intention of going through an operation in a public hospital as a novice: jimmy would be the model patient of that hospital. Slowly, .limmy's accumulation of facts and fancies grew. As his store of knowledge increased, an idea shed its radiant beams upon Jimmy's brain- He would do exactly as the others had done-except that he would always know what was in store for him, while the others had remained in ignorance. So it came to pass that one spring day jimmy lay on the operating table of the Passthouon Hospital. He was joking with the nurses when the doc- tor entered. "All right, jimmy?" he inquired. "You ought to know, you examined me yesterday." Thereupon the doctor motioned to the nurse to strap jimmy to the operating table. "Hey, doc, I didn't know this was Sing Sing," remarked jimmy as he submitted his arms for "strapping". , "XYell, that't not the only thing you don't know," answered the medicog and for once Jimmy had no reply to make. XYhen all the necessary preparations had been made, the nurse placed the ether-cap over .limmy's nose and requested him to "take a long breath." Jimmy inhaled the ether, and, following instructions, began to count. At this moment, his information concerning counting occurred to him. He re- membered another boy who had been requested to count to thirty. This young man told jimmy that as soon as his counting became indistinct, the doctors proceeded with the operation. XYhereupon jimmy decided to cheat the doctors, even while learning something of the mystery connected with an operation. Jimmy counted steadily to ten. Then he began to shade his voice grad- uallv, until at "seventeen" his voice had died down to a mere whisper. His Onlbi angvyer to the nurse's "Can you hear me jimmy?" was a feeling of joy at having outwitted the attendants. Bu his joy was short-lived, for even while he thought of this, a feeling of light airiness swept over him, terrifying him, as it seemed to carry him to an unknown place. Soon the lightness changed to a feeling as of a great weight bearing down his fingers, while at the same time his feet became pieces of lead. Then, working upward from , ll f- 15 li '. 'gain 66 FIFTH AVENUE LIFE his feet, came a feeling of dead weight which left him powerless-he could JuSt lie still and feel his limbs becoming paralyzed. -lust as he lost conscious- ness, he felt an iron grip prying open his jaws and a piece of iron being forced bfffwfffll MS fefith. Then jimmy was, to all appearances, unconscious. Yet his mind was active. ln his unconscious state he saw two balls of fire-like huge buzz-saws revolving in opposite directions, accompanied by all the noise and sparks made by the clash of steel on steel-each trying to grind a hole through his head, while through it all two choruses kept running in his Illllldiilfjll my poor head-poor head, poor head," competing with "One-two-three ffour buzz um tidi ummm one-five-siX- seven -- eight-buzz-um-tidi-", until his head resembled a battleground for conflicting armies. Then suddenly all noise ceased-the wheels stopped revolving, and in their stead appeared a solitary bright star, surrounded by innumerable satellites. One peaceful, yet insistent question recurred to him-"ls this death, or is it rather an artificial medium between life and death? lf this is death, why do mortals so fear it? Here is no strife nor worry nor fear. Here is no struggle for existence. Yet mortals fear death, Here I see no terrible Justice, unless it be the bright silver star. But what-H Here again his train of thought was interrupted -this time a complete disappearance of the picture bvfore him, while a great weight seemed to be removed from his body. Soon he felt the presence of human beings, and he realized that he was conscious. lYith this realization came another-it would nevr do for him to show the others he was conscious. Then suddenly he remembered that patients "coming out of the ether" often become delirious, and with this thought came still another-he could impress his family with the fact that he worried over business matters. So, surreptititiously peep- ing over his covers to make certain his brother was in the room, he began "Remember the Findlay shipment, klohn. And the Taylor contract is not yet complete. l'll have to visit Johnson again, l guess-"So he rattled on, naming every customer on the books of the company, until he became ex- hausted. Then he remembered something. :X patient always asks for water after an operation. Then came the moans:- "lYater, water waater wahter XYATER-XY.X'l'ER - XYATERW "beginning with a whisper and gradually growing into a scream, until the nurse brought a glass of ice-chips to him. Then he discovered that he could not drink water-he could not bear the sight of it. The nurse looked puzzled, shrugged her shoulders, and withdrew from the room. vlimmy's brother came over to the bed, reached for the water, and stage-whispered, "You poor fishl.

A GLANCE BACKWARD In thc Province gf Minsk, nestling between two hills, on the banks of llohia River is situated mv native town Ti111kOWlChl- the llUPUlflfl0l1 ef ,X ' x gif , ,,,n,,M. ,W l i . FIFTH AVENUE LIFE 67 which does not exceed two thousand. My hom-C is not directly in Timkovv- ichi, but about fifteen minutes walk from it as the river 'ind 'orchard sc a- L ap rate us from the town . Since the river was so near at hand, skating became our chief sport in winter and swimming in the summer. On an average, mv brothers and I went into the water five or six times a day. My father strongly objected to this for a reason that he kept only to himself. tThat is one of his charac- teristics -taciturnity-ij At the age of six. when parents usually send their children to school, I was able to read and write Yiddish and translate a little of Hebrew. For this I must thank my grandfather who willingly undertook to teach me. The means of education in Russia, then, was very limited. We had no public school except the one financed by the Greko-Catholic church which was only open during the winter. The neighboring peasants sent their children to this institution in winter and used them for work in the fields in the summer time. Life among the peasants is very wretched. The women work from morning to night, some gleaning in the fields, others at home preparing for the family meal as well as that of the cattle and swine. Winter finds the peasants also occupied: they thresh their grain, pound the flax, spin and weave it, and grind their grain. For the latter, the neighboring peasants depended largely upon my father, who owned the only steam mill in the dis- trict. tFuel for the mill consisted of peat dug in the bovs of the nfliffhborinof fieldsj. In order to go to cheider tIfIebrew schooli it was necessary for me to D D D walk some distance. Cheider let out at 8 P M. and during winter I would fear to come home as it was exceedingly dark and cold. For this reason, mother arranged for a private tutor who would come to our house daily and teach me a little of everything. Although he knew very little Russian it was from him that I learned to read and write the Slav script. I had spoken Russian since Iwas a child and probably spoke it better than my lehref fteacherl. As I grew older I started to cheider. Our rebi fHebrew teacherj taught us the Bible only Cchumosh and tanachj. The entire week was spent in repeating the same sedrah Cdivision of the Biblej. Our only happy school day came but once a month. This was the day when the town's fire depart- ment held its drill. Our rebi permitted us to watch them drill. NVe had no modern fire extinguishers. If a fire were to bfC21li Out at might, the one noticing it first would notify the captain who would, by means of a bugle call, summon the rest of the force. Then someone would run the streets shouting "Pazsharl' fI7ire". The men of the town would awaken and vol- unteer to aid in the rescue and extinguishing work. So, having spent two years in cheider I was enrolled in Narodnoye Uchiliche just opened, and conducted by one who had not received govern- ment permission to teach Russian publicly. as he, being a Jew, had nOt been a graduate of the required courseg but owing to the fact that together .M .... da.-. , , X , 'Ilia 3.3 ad , ' - 5131+ F qi." 63 FIFTH AVENUE LIFE with him were a Hebrew teacher and a Talmud instructor, it was sUPPO5'3d by the police authorities that no Russian was taught. ,Xs a matter of fact, half of the day was devoted to Russian. Thus in disguise and fear I stud- ied here for one and one-half years becoming fairly well acquainted with the iierman, Russian and Ilebrew languages. In l'll2 school had to close. The I'ristau tchief of policel living in a town nearby, became suspicious and made an investigation. I never can forget the day when he and two subordinates entered the classroom during a Russian recitation.

Qur schoolmaster, realizing his fate. whitened and we became terrified thinking that our life rested with their good will, XYithout saying much, they confiscated all the Russian books, asking the individuals, "XYhat are you doing with these Russian books F" Terrified as we were,- we had said very little. I recall. however, that some answered. "My father teaches it to me." others 'Amy sister in- structs me." , These answers only verified the truth, for what should we be doing with Russian text books in school? The punishment, however, was inflict- ed upon our teacher who fled the town and has never been heard of by me. This incident I consider a crisis in my life for it was this that led me to pursue my studies elsewhere. I had a vision of the free education given in :Xmerica to which country I yearned to go. An opportunity presented itself. My uncle was living in America at this time and upon learning of my difficulties, wrote for me to come, expressing deep concern for my welfare. Ilere began a violent men- tal struggle with two opposing ideas. Ought I go to America leaving my home and breaking family ties or should I stay in Russia with my chances for education and progress limited? The question was not so debatable perhaps in my mind as in the minds of my parents. On Iulv l5, l9l-I I set sail for America. XYho can judge whether I have done right ? Ilen Wald. BOB REMOVES THE OBSTACLE It was the noon hour at the Illaine Shoe factory and llob Martin was eating his lunch with the f'bunch.', "XXX-ll," said Eddie, "hurry up, Bob, we want to get a couple of games of Kelly in to-day." "You and the bunch can go," replied Bob, "I promised Mr. llermau I would work extra to-day and try to finish that calf leather." "Oh, trying to get a drag? XYell, I can say he won't get you anywhere.. Come on, fellows, let'5 go," and with this retort from Eddie, the "bunch" left liolr to meditation. "lX'ell, maybe, I won't get any extra pay," thought Bob, "but then Mr. Ilerman asked me and I'll do it." "N -. ,, x ,' N.

"Bob" he said, "I see you're a worker, so now, I'll see what I can do for you. VVould you like to advance in the workshop or continue your education? Bob was a junior in IVilson High school when the flood occurred. He was the only son of a banker, XX'illiarn fllartin. The flood carried away all the wealth of XYilson besides taking from Tom his two greatest treasures, his mother and father. Left thus, he was obliged to go to work. He was ambitious and was plowing ahead but just now the obstacle would not let him go any further. That obstacle was lack of education. He was delight- ed to even THINK of going back to high school but then, oh, he couldn't do it! "I sure would like to finish high school-" he replied eagerly, but I can't afford it." But Mr. Herman was planning. ' The next week, Robert Martin enrolled as a student in the part-time course at the new XYilson High school. Une week he went to school, the next he worked in the private office of Mr. Herman. Of course, he didn't receive nearly so much money, but then he was getting an education, and in addition, learning the plant "from gate to gate." For two years If-oh kept coming and going and then graduation time came, His best friend, Mr. Herman, attended the exercises. On their way home, Mr. Herman said, "Now, llob, the position is open to you and so is my home. I have no one, so let's live together." Bob was confused. "XN'hat position do you mean?" he asked.. "VVhy the position I have had open since I came here-a real assistant. ou stayed from your daily game of Kelly, I knew you Ever since the day y . . H could climb.

I have always been an omnivorous reader, but as I look back, the first book that ever made a distinct impres- sion on me was my "Gil P-las." I have opcned the book to reread it time and again, and each time the magic of the book has enthralled me. Each time the shrewd and likable Gil has stepped forth, 'made his bow, and led me with him in his journey over a Spain long since dead. The next books that engaged my attention were those of XVilliam Morris He who has not made the journey to the "XVell at the NNIorld's End," with Ralph and Ursula, cannot he said to have traveled far in the realms of fancy. I-Ie who has not wandered with the Red Boy up and down the banks of the "Sundering Floodf' has missed a journey into Arcadia. Few indeed are the students who have read the Icelandic Sagas translated by Williani Morris and Erikir Magnusson, yet from these books Maurice Hewlett draws his style as well as the material of many of his stories. I have always felt myself a personal friend of Theodore Roosevelt, bea cause he read and appreciated George Borrow. It is impossible to describe any of Borrow's books. They are all an expression of Borrow's strange person- ality. If you like Borrow you like him greatly, and if you don't--you donlt. A taste for Borrow cannot be acquired. It would be the rankest ingratitude on my part if I should forget to men- tion my old friends, the cheerful, chubby Pickwick, Sam XYeller, and how I but amusing scoundrel, Hajji Baba, over Persia and wild Turkestan.

As I entered the school building, I did not recognize it as the same building I had left two and a half hours before. The halls were dark and gloomy. Not a sound was to be heard exce'pt my footsteps resounding throughout the corridor. In my reporting room, I looked around. XYas this the same room? Everything was in perfect order. The teacher's desk was somewhat differ- ent from what I was used to seeing it. Instead of the haphazard array of papers, there was a large, clean blotter. The whole room was exceedingly clean and very, very quiet. After I had obtained my book, I stepped into the hall again. There were no shrill voices of boys and girls: no loud laughter: no running through the halls at top specdg no shouting of the familiar, "Hello, there l": no con- densed five-niinute-period conversations, such as "Ho, Mary, are you going upstairs? Wait for ine."-"VVliat did you make in Englishil'-"Did you get that French translated? I didn't"-"Oh, I hope he doesn't call on me to recite today." .X feeling of dvspondency came over me as I quickly walked from the building.

The principal aim of the club this year has been to make clear the somewhat hazy idea of the things about us, The various discus- sions treating' upon mathematics in nature, astronomy, art and music, to- gether with the most enjoyable talks on the Fourth Dimension, Logarithms and the Slide Rule. Ytoinen in Mathematics and Twenty Century Mathemat- ics fixed the relation of mathematics to these subjects most permanently in the minds of all those who heard them. Realizing the limited time for discussion upon such inexhaustible sub- jects special pains were taken to call extra meetings for added or preliminary explanations. The following' are worthy of particular mention: Illustrated Astronomical Lecture by Dr. Ogden. A Trip to the Allegheny Observatory, the Slide Rule by Mr, Smith 1ofA. XY. Smith K Col. XVm. Burstin. MATH CLUB THE COMMERCIAL CLUB The Lfommercial Club is becoming one of the most active of the school. The numbers on the program thus far this semester have been just full of the "pep," which tends to keep the students wide awake. Recent numbers were talks on Conimerce by XVni. Knowlan, salesmanship by Abe xYl1lG1', and the manufacture of glass by Samuel Calinsky. A very entertaining dialogue, "Dad says so, ,-Xnyhow", was given by Freda Cohen and Maurice Rosen- Iwrg. M, S. 12B K 80 FIFTH AVENUE Lire THE DELPHIAN LITERARY SOCIETY Two divisions of this activity, A and ll, meet together in the Auditorium on alternate XYednesdays but have separate programs. This novel plan has proved to be successful inasmuch as the union of the sections gives the inspiration of a larger audience while the separation of the programs pro- motes a friendly and healthful rivalry. That the activity is in a vigorous condition, and that the student body realizes the benefits to be obtained by participation in it, is proved by the fact that the guardians found it necessary to close the bars of admission early in the semester, because of its greatly increased size. Furthermore. it may be said that the Literary Society is actually accom- plishing that for which it has reason to exist. One claim is that this activitv prepares students for taking part in public meetings of a utilitarian or eri- tertaining character. lt is with a sense of gratification, therefore, that we can substantiate this claim. XYe note with pride that in the recently chosen dlass play cast ten of the eleven are from the Literary Society, three from section A and seven from Section B. . The class of June '21 takes from the Society many of its able members. XVe regret their leaving, but extend to them our best wishes along with our "Good-byes." AT ASSEMBLY On February 29, Dr. I. H. Dickason, .-X, Bl., connected for more than twenty years with the College of TYooster, at XYooster, Ohio, gave an ex- tremely interesting and unique talk to the Seniors in Room 400. He em- phasized the importance of the last year of school, and the ensuing entrance into the world. This period of our life he compared to the position of a man on third base, in an important game of baseball, when the runner must rely upon his own abilities to bring him home. Examples were given of men who by determination and work, have become successes in life, though they were greatly handicapped by their lack of opportunities when begin- ning life. Such a talk inspires one with new zeal and puts before one the great possibilities of success which can be achieved only be overcoming obstacles through determination and hard work.

For the Red Cross the boys have folded small booklets and pamphlets which were to be distributed in the downtown districts. The same boys in small groups helped to pack for one day at the Red Cross building. Instead of working on the work assigned them, a group of boys made small tools to accommodate the large number of pupils that eat in the lunch room. One hundred and fifty folding chairs are now being completed for use in the various school auditoriums. These chairs are made simply, but they are fairly comfortable. Their main advantage, however, is that they fold into one piece. A large filing cabinet for use in the offices of the Board of Education ig just being' Started by two shop pupils.

RALPH SCA-XNlGiA 11B NEWS' IN BRIEF In the corridor of the first floor is an old. print of George Washington This has been in the family of Mrs. Bonar, wife of the Superintendent of Buildings, for at least seventy-Five years. She gives this picture to our high school. Vile appreciate this as another evidence of the kind feeling that the Bonars have for Fifth Avenue High School. The name Bonar suggests our beautiful mural painting entitled "The Spirit of Libertyfl The 12B class is laying the foundation for its future social success, by holding dancing classes every Monday in the basement. Marked interest has been taken in the plan, the object of which is to eliminate all wall- flowers from socials. This will be accomplished by teaching everyone to dance, at least a little. It is quite evident that with the willingness and fur- ther co-operation of the class, and the gracious guidance of their chaperon. Miss Mcflenahan. the 12B class will hold extremely successful socials in the future. Miss Abigail Hill of Room 313 has been absent from school for quite a while. As a result of the grief and anxiety caused by her mother's death, Miss Hill "broke-clown." Her illness was also due to a series of severe colds which finally developed into the "flu," Miss l-lill writes that she will- be back as soon as the warm and pleasant days set in. XYe hope those days will come soon because we surely do miss her.

Can you imagine those chic little hats the girls are wearing, costing only about 3200? Wlell. it is true! Here's how. The girls, that is, most of them, buy a buckram frame in any 'five and ten' for twenty cents for the brim and ten cents for the crown' They cover this frame with straw or ribbon. One girl used thirteen yards of straw braid which she also bought at the 'five and ten'. This straw is sewed to the frame by deft fingers. The hat is then linfd and with a little trimming is complete. This trimming may be an attractive bunch of flow- ers, not gaudy. oh no! or maybe a loop of ribbong or maybeAanything the girl desires, In addition to making hats, the class is learning how to make their own fabric flowers. Dainty ones made from bits of organdy, crepe. silk, etc just the thing for summer hats! Don't you wish you knew how to make these little fancies? Have you seen those posters hanging in the first floor hall? Aren't they beautiful and suggestive of mystery and adventure? The Japanese one the poster with the warriors combating the dragon, was made by Leroy Wlible, assistant staff artist. Its brilliant coloring attracts tht eye, making one notice every detail. As contrasted with this study in reds and yellows, there is the Chinese poster made by ,lack Johnson. lts coloring is more subdued: soft greys and greens. Reading compared to Aladdin's Lamp! Magic! Mystery! Like that wonderful lamp, reading will give one al- most everything one wants. The poster with the castle as the main attract- ion was made by Bessie Melnick. At once there arose in my mind a picture of the castle in Ivanhoe. Boys crave adventure, mystery, hair-haising situ- ations: do girls? Do you know that there is a library in our school? How manyimake use of this eiccellent opportunity to become acquainted with the various authors? Do you know that reading is the key to knowledge? Read more books! Read more books! M. G- INSIDE BASKET-BALL INFORMATION A Week-End Trip As a conclusion to their successful season, the basketball girls accom- panied by Miss McClenahan, took a week-end trip to the Chautauqua Camp at Verona. Cold weather and even snow only increased the fun. The team took their own "eats" and cooked them on a log-fire. Blan- kets lugged from home, in conjunction with mattresses, made real cosy- campy beds. The chief attraction of the trip was some lessons in the art of self-defense. given by the coach. Her lessons were illustrated by actual demonstrations. Another feature of the trip was a number of games of hockey which were, needless to say, hotly contested. The girls are eagerly looking forward to their next hike. if RX, -?vi?'B'k'A.fT5'e-md, , 38 FIFTH AVENUE LIFE Boys' Team Entertained ' -- The boys' basketball team was entertained at the home of Marguerite NX'enzlick, Thursday, April 22.

SChOOl learned something of the "ins and outs" of the Hazelwood car system, which try the souls of the less fortunate ones who must ride to school. A Surprise Party For Miss McClenahan The girls' basketball team held a surprise party in honor of Miss Mcflen- ahan, April 22, at the home of "Chubby" Irwin, one of the members of the team, who graduated in -Ianuary. The girls kept their secret so well that their coach knew nothing of the party until they arrived. This disproves the old saying that girls cannot keep a secret. A Luncheon Cn March 12, Miss Mcflenahan gave a luncheon in honor of the girls of the team, at her home in Uellevue. After the luncheon there was dancing and stunts by some of the girls. As usual, everyone hated to leave and thus end the pleasant time. .- THE SENIOR B'S SOCIALLY The keynote of the future success of the 1213 class was sounded on May 10. 1921, when their inaugural G. T. S., CGet Together Socialb was held. It did all that it was intended to do and more, for from start to finish the guests were made merry by games, dances, a mock circus and. of course, refreshments. Lillian Shapiro, the social chairman, and her assistants have our appreciation for the way the affairs was conducted. A "Mock" circus which bids fair to rival the gorgeous "Barnum X Bail- ey" was produced by Miss McClenahan. She even went so far as to have some of the members of the class resemble a tame menagerie. The troupe included clowns, dancing horses, bears, elephants, a fancy dancer, two baby actresses, a tight rope walker, a ring master, a wild man, a snake charmer and a Ford automobile. The wilder animals were on a hunger strike and would not leave their cages to perform. A farmer and his wife had gained entrance to the show and caused a lot of commotion by hurling ignorant 1'6- marks at the performers. ldresiclent X'Viner talked on HThe Opportunity of a Sociable Class." The remainder of the evening was spent in games and dances. lt was a first class social. S. K, f 1 4. '11-w'lf.41-.,,i K , is e Y wp 'Eg'-Wi' ft-fmwv' ,. .

Each year the "Hundred Friends" purchase one thous- and dollars' worth of pictures from the collection of the .-Xssociated Artists. a group of Pittsburgh painters. The pictures thus procured are presented to the Pittsburgh schools, remaining about one semester in each school. The presentation of Mr. Bonar's painting, "The Spirit of Liberty" did much to awaken an interest in art at the Fifth Avenue High School. The arrival of the recent collection set the school further on its career of art appreciation, and is, indeed, an appropriate culmination to a quarter century of, real progress. VYhile these pictures remain with us, we should take advantage of them to learn artistic values.-Contrasted conceptions of Pittsburgh, as seen thru the eyes of two artists, are shown in "The Mill Evening," by George XY. Sotter, and "A Duslcy Morning," by A, ll. Gorson. Painting Pittsburgh has been Mr. Gorson's major work, and he uses the cool colors-green, gray, blue, green and silver effects. 011 the -other hand, Mr. Sotter's representation ot the city is in the warmer side of the spectrum-violet. rose and gold. In the first case the citv is seen thru a thin, cold atmosphereg in the second, the city is enveloped in a rich mantle of glowing colors. In which way do you see Pittsburgh?

Equal in distinction with Parcell is the late Fred Demmler, brothel' tO OUT own Mr. Demmler, and producer of the painting, "Vera" This Picture is fl study in relaxation: even the colors in it seem to relax, giving no sharp def- inition. From the artist's point of view, the picture is an exceedingly in- teresting color composition. Klr. Demmler excelled in character portraiture and delighted in child portraiture. He was considered among the most promising artists of the country. His death in army service abroad, "Cut the bough that might have grown full straight." Included in our exhibit is one group of pictures that are productions of the Impressionistic School. The impressionist encounters the difficult task of reproducing his first impression, which is the truest and the strongest one. The "XYhite Parasol," by Miss Elizabeth Rothwell, an in- structor at the Teachers' Training School. is typical of this class. In this group one can hardly help noticing the colorful portrait, "The Chinese Smocku by Olive F-kemp, "Flowers" is a decorative impressionistic painte ing by E. XY. Metzkes, who is a decorator of eftraordinary ability. XVhile decorating Mr. Henry Ford's home, he produced, in his spare moments, about two hundred sketches of value. Metzkes often wakes up at four o'clock in the morning in order to devote the two hours before his regular work to painting pictures. Since it makes so universal an appeal, "The Circus Passes Through Our Village" is quite a popular picture. Its fullness of color gives it the spring atmosphere of lightness and frivolity which is best seen thru the eyes of boyhood. Christ Walters and Samuel Rosenberg are two intimate friends whose work has attracted favorable comment in national and international art circles. In his studio in the Penn building, IValters has painted, "A Sum- mer Nightn which falls into the class of tonal paintings. The picture has a sort of quivering effect, which gives it an atmosphere of mystery and calls forth feeling. Samuel Rosenberg's, "For a Boy in France," noted for its simplicity of composition, was painted at the artist's former home in Dinwiddierstreet, almost under the shadow of our own school. One of the first Pittsburgh painters is A. Bryan XValls, whose "Across the Fields" is typical work. for it is a picture of sheep. Painting sheep is his hobby. Space hardly permits a detailed study of the rest of the paintings which all, to be sure, have unusual qualities. This may be said, however, that aside from the standpoints from which the preceding paintings have been judged, there are also the peculiarities of the pictures to be noted. One is an interesting study in monochronism tone color artl. another in light and shadow. and a third in detail. By so observig the qualities of the various paintings we may find them a source of education as well as of pleasure. L'ntold benefits may be derived from these paintings. Wfho can say lint that they may be the inspiration to some latent talent in this verv school? Surely, they influence us all to see the more beautiful in life, to XX , X FIFTH AVENUE LIFE 91 set high among our ideals, the ideal of beauty and to bring into our sur- roundings the beautiful and artistic. Thus these paintings may enable the students of our school to enter upon a new period of growth-an artistic growth- YICTOR l2lFENS'l'lilN. THE STEPHEN FOSTER HOME So few of us take advantage of the many opportunities offered us right here in our own city. To think that many of us have lived all of our lives in this city and yet have never visited the home of Stephen Collins Foster, one of the greatest, if not the greatest. musician l7'ittsbui'gh has ever known, in fact, one of our very few national musicians! He.was born in a small cott-a-ge inf-the 3600 block of Penn Avenue on July 4, ISZ6 and he died in New York in 186-L, a little over a half-century ago. His father was a prominent man, who owned the arsenal, which i5 a few squares from the Foster home. His mother was from the South, and from her he acquired his sympathy for the negro, which later inspired him to write his songs for the negro minstrels. Now that the opportunity to visit the Stephen Foster home presented itself, I took advantage of it. Upon entering the room where relics of Fos- ter are kept, I found portraits of Stephen, his father and his mother. There was also a glass case containing some of the instruments which he played. the flageolet, which he learned to play by himself at the age of seven, and the flute. The case also contains the wedding ring which Foster presented to his wife, an old family Bible, some original portraits of the Foster fam- ily, and the original manuscript of "Open Thy Lattice, Love," one of his famous songs. The most interesting thing in the room, however, is the piano, which Foster played on. It is a quaint looking instrument, much smaller and quite different from the ones we now use. The wood is decay- ing and the keys are very stiff and hard to strike. They sound peculiarly now on account of their age. Many of them do not sound at all. When I left this room I inquired of the man, who had ushered me in, if he lived in the house. He informed me that he lived there with his mother. I did not think much of this other than he was the caretaker, perhaps, but imagine my surprise when I found out that I was talking to the only grandson of Stephen Foster, and that his mother, Mrs. Marion Foster Welsh, was Fosters only child! I immediately poured a volley of questions upon him and he very' graciously answered all of them and told me many things which I did not ask him. "My grandfather," said he, "was of a fine, modest, sensitive nature, but he was too easily led by his companions. He was a well educated man, having attended some of the best schools, and being versed in many for- eign languages. He was a lover of nature and would wander off into the Woods and there muse upon the birds, trees, and brooks. He was also very fond of animals and always had some pet or another. At one time he even had a pet monkey," "XN'hat led him to write negro melodies?" I asked. "He sympathized greatly with the negroes, but he wrote the negro mel- odies mostly because he wrote for the negro minstrels who were very com- fy XXX P as Q MJ, , nr- V .Li .. .av ,, 92 FIFTH AVENUE LIFE mon in his day. He wrote "My Old Kentucky Home" while visiting on a plantation on Federal Hill, Kentucky." Foster published, in all, about one hundred seventy-five songs. The most popular of these are: "Old Black Joe," "Old Uncle Ned," HBIEISSHTS in the Cold, Cold Ground," "Come XYhere My Love Lies Dreaming." "Louis- iana Belle," His last song was "Beautiful Dreamer." "And is it true that he sold many of his songs to Edward Christy and allowed them to be printed bearing the name of Christy as author and com-- poser?" I continued. "Yes, that is true," came the reply, "but he received a very small sum for his compositions. lt is said that Christy paid him S500 for 'lOld Folks at Homei' but he really received only fifteen for that composition." Upon this, he ventured to remark that the Stephen Foster home, though owned by the city, was being sadly neglected. The house, he said. was in a bad condition, needing many repairs. It is time for the city of Pittsburgh to make an effort to improve this home in some way or other. Laxness in such a matter is totally inexcusa- ble in a land which can boast of so very few co'mposers. Freda Cohen. MAY FESTIVAL TO BE REVIVED Among the many movements begun by the Musicians' Club of Pittsburgh this year is the revival of the old May Festival which was in progress about eight years ago. The movement has been taken up by several influential persons and organizations of this city and is on its way to success. Large contributions have already been made. 'Mrs Taylor Allderdice is chairman of the executive committee. The festival will be held on the 7th of june at Syria Mosque, Ar- rangements have been made for two performances. The afternoon pro- gram will be given by a chorus of six hundred high schoolstudents, another of the same number composed of grade school students, and a combined orchestra of seventy members. Fifth will have fifty-five representatives, forty-five in the chorus and ten in the orchestra. The program for the even- ing will be rendered by the choral organizations of the city. The proceeds of this affair are to go to the Pipe Organ Fund. This fund will be at the disposal of any school that wishes and has room to install an organ. PITTSBURGH,S CELEBRATED VISITORS - lf one were to stay in Pittsburgh long enough certainly he would meet everybody in the world, or to modify that somewhat, everyone who stands out as a thinker, leader or pioneer. This dusky city of ours last month teemed with celebrities. In the course of a little more than the month of March proper, among those who appeared here were Miss Alice Robertson, the Congresswoman from Okla- homa, Gilbert K. Chesterton, the platitude king from England, Mary Garden, supreme opera star with more than a voice and director of the great Chicago Upera Company, Fannie llurst, Lillian Gish, John Drinkwater, Sir Qliver lsoilge, Sir Phillip Gibbs, Donal OlCallaghan, Mrs. Terrence Mc?-winey, Ig- ! ,f l XX i if :Nfl-w' 'ii 1 'il y i E, g N -w grzf ' 5 .- r1-k'4r5"f'fi19'- '-. ,. 51 c if-f3.f -.

Of Miss Robertson it is said that Pittsburgh found her so reassuringlv different from what she might have been that she brought to us the inno- cent emotions of a lyrical Barrie play. Chesterton, however, seemed gr hopg- less proposition. His cumbersome form polished to seal-like smoothness and timid manner of uttering platitudes from the lecture platform consitute a highly dramatic scene. However, the necessity of conforming to the will of advisers who urged upon him the adoption of a diplomatic stand, detracted from his lecture, but not greatly enough to hide his true genius and charm- ing personality. Mary Garden, unique in her capacity as director of the Chicago Opera Company, gave Pittsburgh a glimpse of a woman as a combination of prima donna and business woman, 'ller vocal efforts received their usual casual approval. but she again shone as an intense dramatic artist. Miss Hurst, finally coerced into visiting this city, gave interesting side- lights on the writing art in informal talks before two local women's organiz- ations, one, the Pittsburgh XVomen's Press Club. She told fellow craftsmen of her methods in character delineation. Those of whom she writes in her clever short stories, are not real people, but are composites of human types. To refute the general opinion that succssful writers may dash off their copy in an indifferent manner, she tells of her unremitting labor at her Remington. and contends that six hours daily have brought her her present measure of fame. Miss Gish was as unassuming in her oratory as she is accomplished in her screen presentations. She is one cinema celebrity who is applying in- telligence to her work, and acknowledges she has not yet achieved perfection but is gathering impressions first hand through her associations. Coincident with the staging of his second play, "Mary Stuart" in New York, John Drinkwater lectured in Pittsburgh, giving a close interpretative study of the motives which underlay the writing of his Abraham Lincoln, which was appearing here at that time. Sir Qliver Lodge, the mystic, Sir Phillip Gibbs, war correspondent, and Claire Sheridan, scupltress, all from England, projected views on various phases of llritish life, letter and writer on psychic phenomena. 1 ' C, accredited war correspondents, Gibbs has attained distinction as a publicist. The purpose of his appearance here was to foster better relations between the two great Fnglish speaking nations. Miss Sheridan Sifwe intimate Pei" cr 4 ' P . .

Pittsburgh, Pa, My Old Friends at Fifth Ave. High: Greetings: It certainly seems good to reflect for a few moments on some of the days of yesteryear as a student. It is quite a common opinion that one's schooldays are his happiest-especial- ly during the months of june and -luly. How we loved them! I have been asked to write a few details about my profession. Though always "dumb" in English and com- position-tand about everything elsel I ventured into the newspaper busi- ness. lVhether it was fascination or just the desire to some day become a great writer, I do not remember, but here l am today with a smile. Since leaving Fifth, with the exception of a year in France, I have drawn pay en- velopes from the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Detroit Free Press and the Leader. Allow me here to congratulate the members of your staff of Life. The paper is more than interCsting and is gotten up in real magazine fashion. The contributions of many of the pupils make me feel, as I read them, that they are a thousand times better than some of the compositions I handed in to Kliss Davis while studying with her. llut thanks to Miss Davis, she tried hard enough. Xvith the spirit of Fifth tl. A. Siinons-'l3 A BIT ABOUT REPORTING Perhaps the most interesting branch of newspaper work is reporting. The successful reporter is the one who at all times keeps his finger on the pub- lic pulse. He must know what is go- ing on around him at all times and must learn to see through the eyes of every class. The reporter must learn to place himself in the role of his sub- ject, to assume his character and to put down on paper his feelings and thoughts. He soon learns to see life from all sides: its pathos and tragedy. its sunshine and cheer unfold them- selves before him in his daily duties. The art of reporting, and it is an art, embraces much. The public de- mands something new every day. It is the duty of the reporter to get it. The "cub" usually is broken in by be- ing sent out on minor happenings and telephoning in the details to seasoned reporters in the office, who writes the story. After acquiring sufficient skill in gathering facts and in learning the ways of the profession, the "cub" graduates to the full-fledged class and writes his own story. An essential to good reporting is a large amount of reading, not only of current events, but of fiction as well. The reporter must be conversant with happenings the world over. Every- body's business must be his business. in a journalistic sense. He must cul- tivate a keen imagination, and an easy flowing "style" A good style is quickly recognized and if the reporter has any degree of ambition he will soon find his way into the magazine. short-story or scenario field. "Yo,1 can't keep a good man down." holds good in journalism just as well as it does in the thousand and one other professions. ls the work interesting? It certain- !

' MQW i -A FIFTH AV lv must be or many would not waste their time with such a vocation. The work is not routine and never does it become monotonous. There is some- thing new every day, something dif- ferent happening all the time. They must be looked up and written. An interesting phase of reporting is criminal work, known as "police reporting." The reporter visits the scenes of crimes, quite often within .1 few minutes after they have happen- ed. It helps considerably to be "on the job." XVhen a murder, for in- stance, has been committed. it is a nat- ural thing for the reporter to stay on the story until a solution has been reached or the murderer captured. l-le must constantly watch for develop- ments and keep the reading public well fed. A case in particular, on which the writer worked, was the kid- napping and murder of the little North Side school girl, Nadine Kra- mer. It was as interesting as it was unusual. In newspaper language it was a "bear of a story." Assigned to the story the day the little child dis- appeared, the writer came into com- tact with and touched every phase of it, until the small white casket was lowered into the ground at its final resting place. It meant a visit to the scene of the crime, an interview with the parents of the child, a talk with the man accused of the murder and at- tendance at the funeral. The newspaper writer comes inta close contact with the highbrows and the lowbrows- Hardly does a person of any prominence pass through or corne into the city without being besieged by flocks of reporters. Kings and queens, presidents, actors, noted cele- brities of every field, as well as mur- derers, burglars or other convicts-- b all mean the same to the writer. There ENUE Lllili '17 are questions to ask of all of them, things the public will be most inter- ested in and would like to lcnow about. The sense of competition is very keen and a reporter would much rather get a "scoop" for his paper than a couple of theatre tickets. A sort of friendly rivalry exists that makes the work all the more interesting. To conclude, the reporter must have a constant hunger for news. a "sixth sense" of knowing a story when he sees it, 100 per cent of pep and the de- termination "to get there."

Two city championships were won, those in foot' ball and basketball, but unfortunately we were unable to annex a XVestern Pennsylvania premiership. Qur fail- ure has been attributed to a jinx or hoodoo which has followed Fifth in her sports for the last six years. XVe have first evidence of it back in the fall of 1915. That year Fifth's gridiron representatives swept away with ease everything that stood in its way until the final game with XYilkins- burg arranged to decide the XYestern Pennsylvania championship. Although they entered this contest a two to one favorite, they emvrged beaten by one touchdown. That same season Fifth was repre- sented by one of the finest basketball teams in her history. lt was expected to win the title of this end of the state. ,-.-.1 Flux K Sen LAC, Assistant The city championship was won, and a series of games arranged between South and Fifth to decide the XVestern Pennsylvania championship. South took the title by winning the two first games by nosing out our boys towards the end of both contests. Fifth won the baseball championship that year, because the well known jinx had no opportunity to display its wares as no post-season series was arranged in which the title hung in the balance. The three lean years of sports that followed in the wake of this highly successful one, saw Fifth win only one title, the Hockey Championship of 1016-1917. Fifth rcsumed its habit of winning city titles in the basketball season of 1919-1920. After finishing first in the City by virtue of a sensational one- point victory over South Hills, we en- tered the XY. P. l. A, L. elimination ser- ies. XYe won the first game, but lost the next time out to Belevue by two points. Bellevue then trounced Mc- Keesport in the game which decided 100 F I F T H A V the XYestern Pennsylvania Champion- ship. ln the Venti State Collcge tour- nament the same year we had an op- portunity of turning the tables on our North Boroughs rival, but lost it when Harrisburg Technical High defeated our five and then won the State Cham- pionship by trimming Bellevue. lVe felt at the outset of the past foot- ball season that, from the superlative ly good material on hand for a football team, an eleven could be moulded that would overcome the traditional jinx by winning the much desired W. B. I, A. L. championship. XVe ran into a considerable amount of hard luck during the official City League sched- ule, and had to be satisfied with score- less ties with Peabody and Allegheny. However, our showing in decisively defeating all of the other city teams prompted the Syracuse Alumni Com- mittee to choose us as VVashington's opponent in the game, which we lost by a touchdown which would decide the title. That contest stands, as the officials stated, as a gridiron master- piece, but nevertheless the result proves that we were still under the in- fluence of our old friend jinx. At this point it might be mentioned that our defeat on the Bluff was unde- niably partly due to the poor condition of joe liasista, who played a bigger part in our football success than any other player. A week after our defeat at the hands of XYashington at football, our basket- ball practice was started. Great things were expected of our team in view of the fact that every one of the five regulars of last year's team were in school and in shape to play. Con- servative supporters predicted that the team woul win the XV. lj. L A. L. elimination series after annexing the tfity League title. Others went far- ,Y A 3--2,13 N .A J gg' ,, "r NUE LIFIY ther and foretold the winning of the State Championship. .-Xt the close of the City League schedule we were tieil with Schenlvy for the lead, having lost to the Oakland five on their floor. An extra contest was decided upon as the means of settling the championship and this game which was played at Trees gym went to Fifth by a comfort- able margin. Shortly after gaining the title of citv champs, our five left for Chicago to compete in the National Scholastic Basketball Championship Tournament there under the auspices of the Univer- sity of Chicago. XVe did not think it possible for the jinx to travel that far, but our defeat in the first round at the hands of Cedar Rapids tlowai High showed conclusively that our luck was still faulty. In this contest. however, with size against them, our boys did themselves proud. At times they' played the rangy Iowans to a stand- still, and won admiration for their ex- ceptional team work. Cedar Rapids, after defeating Fifth, won the tourna- ment. After returning from Chicago, Fifth entered the XV. P. I. A. L. elimination series, and went to the final game which was lost to Nlclieesport. XVe found the going exceedingly rough during the entire series. Bcaver Falls led us during the entire first three quarters, but by a sensational last min- ute rally by our team, we won, 30-23 Four days later Bellevue was en- countered and defeated in that oft- discussed and debated contest at Trees gymnasium. Wfe won, 31-29, but gained no prestige therebyg nor did Bellevue by its persistent protests and challenges after the game. The victory entitled Fifth to pliy MCKQ-esport for the XV. P. I.

A Personage in a Study Room He was the center of attraction, and his efforts at appearing unconscious of this only proved that he was conscious of this attention. Knowing that he was being watched by every student in the room. he carefully considered his every action before doing it and repeated each word to himself before uttering it. - Finally, the bell ending the five min- ute period was heard. Very deliber- ately he moved to a seat, and as grace- fully as possible deposited himself in the wrong seat. 'XN'ith a sickly attempt at a smile, he rose and seated himself in his own seat. Soon he was engross- ed in his work, which consisted mainly in examining the room and its occu- pants. He had no sooner settled on his work for the day than he discovered that someone else had chosen the same vocation. He felt her looking at him, and glancing around, allowed a smile to spread itself over his erstwhile se rene countenance, as he saw her smil-- ing at him. llut he wondCred why she continued smiling in just the same manner, even after he had smiled. Then came the revelation-she was smiling at the girl behind him, XVhat could he do to maintain his dignity? Naturally he must find someone on whom to lavish the smile for 'tis a crime of the first magnitude for a per- sonage to waste a smile. After some difficulty, he succeeded in giving the smile to Hone worth while" and return-V ed to his work satisfied. Sometimes observation is better than practice. Merely observing this per- sonage has forced me to the conclusion that he is indeed lucky who is not a person of consequence-a "personage." S. H. if - it 'J ' 9 Q V '13 J kg : 103 FIFTH AVENUE LIFE On Writing An Essay XYhat a hard thing it is to write an essay when you have to do it. lfor several days I have been trying to decide on something to write about. I have thought of various subjects, each to be discarded after a few min- utes of contemplation. I have racked my brains for ideas- I was tempted to write one called "XVhy Students Go Crazy." I thought too, l might write about something instructive, as about the why and wherefore of sound or light. I had been studying these sub- jects a whole semester and thought that I knew something about them. Yes indeed, I was pretty sure that I had solved my problem. The next day, however, "Doc" Ogden said, "lVe don't know anything about anything. I have taught you that sound travels in waves but I may be wrong. Every- thing is theory." This bomb coming out of a clear sky created such turmoil in my "upper story" that I could not concentrate on anything else for a cou- ple of days. Only a short time remain- ed. I thought then that maybe l coulil write an essay on relations, on shoes, on towels or other such highly intel- lectual subjects. Ifinally fear crept into nr. heart. I had heard of some people who lost their sanity because they studied or concentrated too much. In panic I quickly chased all my "half-baked" ideas from lily mind. I decided that I would rather face the danger of a zero in Iinglish than that of becoming in- sane. Still my brain was troubled. I won- dered why I could not write this es- say. Once more I stood in danger of being put in a padded cell when, on a sudden, a little bird came to my win- dow and said, "Thou canst not write it because thou must. Give it up." :XHCI 5,0 I did, H, Berglass. CHAPTER II The Poetry of the Period These are the best poems of the time. You may not like them but we assure you they are the best efforts of the best writers. FRESHIE COMPLAINTS.

And when his lies were all found out, VVith all his might and main He'd look at you and try his best To lie them in again.

Philosophy of the Period "It sounds All Right-But XVhat Does It Mean?" A period is judged by its great men A-and the greatest men are the philoso- phers.

X XX QUOTATIONS SCHOOLINIZED The student is but what he knoweth on a recitation or test. The teacher's Hpetf' is a weed that grows in every school. Teachers and students boil at differ- ent temperatures. The report cards toll the knell of parting dreams Cto somej. The Freshic is twice a child. Tests do make cowards of us all.

Letter received by the Editor: Dear Ed: The time has come when I must consult you for your immediate judg- ment regarding an extremely import- ant question, the contemplation of which has caused me many nights of restlessness and countless days of an- xiety. You will probably understand my reluctance in writing you in regard to such a vital question when I say that many hours have been utilized in the study of similar troublei As time moves on rlelentleissly, it con- stantly becomes mort urgent that you should know the worst at once, for in all sincerity, it may meamkeven more than words can say. Now, my friend-I dare not, under any circumstances, communicate this state of mind to anyone but youifor you alone, I think, are to be relied up- on. I feel positive that your assistance will insure a decision in this tremen- dous question. Now, please-please lay aside everything-and tell me- do you think I can risk marrying .1 girl who uses powder, though rich? P. S. There is another I love even more than I do the first, but the second has no money. Be not sparing of my troubled brow, answer me truthfully, a wrinkle more or less counts for naught. Answer-XVe heartily regret that cruel Fate forced you to fall in love with a girl of the type you describe, for although there are very few of them in the world today these few constitute a menace to mankind. They are a dan- gerous lot to speak to and the worst to marryg for they care not for expense -six or seven dollars for a box of pow- der is cheap-and this comes out of your income after marriage. But love is stronger than mere coin. So if you really love the poor girl it will be best for you to marry herier,-ani -what did you say was the address of the rich girl? PROPAGANDA Prof. Seewright.
