Autngrzmhz L 0 n the Gllaaa nf 1924: It has been a source of keen regret to me that during this past year l have been unable to become better acquainted with youg that other duties made it impossible for me to get into more intimate touch with your individual prob- lems, your ambitions, your hopes. It has been a distinct loss to me and the opportunity of real service has thereby been greatly lessened. Nevertheless from what l know about you as a class, l feel assured that you are leaving Nlasten Park willing to accept the challenge which comes to every thinking person. Wholesale disrespect for law, unbridled selfishness, putting personal preferences in the van and disregarding the rights of others are rampant in the World. -To combat these propensities which are so discon- certing ancl dangerous will require all your energies, all your ability. Use the equipment which you have acquired in your high school course against every tendency that will lower in the slightest degree your ideas of what is fair and right. Noise and clamor never gained a permanent victory. lt is the uplifting influence at home, the determined effort in the cityls activities, the quiet ballot in our country's policies that slowly, but surely win in the strife for betterment. To this high task, I commit you with confidence. It is worthy of your best endeavor. F. S. FOSDICK. ACU LTY Dr. Trent... IVI1ss Bull ..........

Our artist has most fittingly chosen such a ship to symbolize the Class of l924, as we leave the haven which has shel- tered us for four years. A sailing vessel must have a definite course and an intelligent guide to keep it true. For 1924 the way has been carefully charted by the many who have gone this Way before, and we have had careful instruction how to steer our course so that we will not drift into Sargasso Seas of disappointment and ruin. Filled with the spirit of Masten Park as expressed in our motto, "Believe you can," let us go forth then with determination to reach the port of Success. Self-confidence is one of the important requisites for success. We do not mean over-confidence, but the quiet self-con- tained assurance that gives men the power to do the great deeds of the world. Thus in our own success shall we bring success to Alma Mater in her task of giving her children the necessary strength, knowledge, and skill to bring the ship of life safely to port. HARRINGTON WOODWORTH 8 THE CHRONICLE nun 1n1anninnnlnlllunnlnnInInll:lullnnulllllnnlnln 3 3' Br. 1Hn5hirk'5 Mirthhag There are many gala-days at lVlasten Park, but ask any group of lVlastenites what day stands out most in the whole school year, and in chorus they will answer, "Oh, Pop's birthday!" That day has always been one of great rejoicing, for each eleventh of ,March stands for another year of the service and love which have characterized the life of the great man at the head of our school. We love it because it is the red-letter day of one whom we love and esteem, and it en- dears him still more to us. The alumni, too, join in paying him homage. This year, on the eighth of lVlarch, two hundred attended a dinner given in his honor at the Statler l-lotel. Young and old graduates were there, including many distinguished people. The Rev. Dr. Holmes made a speech congratulating him and naming him one'of the biggest assets of Buf- falo. At school, Dr. Fosdick was showered with flowers of every kind, until his office resembled a veritable greenhouse. They poured in from studyrooms, classes, sororities, fraternities and individuals. Con- spicuous among these floral gifts was a basket of hyacinths from the Senior Class. There was a celebration in I I2. on Wednesday morning when the Junior boys in song, speeches, and poems told him of their love and loyalty. They then presented him with an automobile kit and a Kodak book. I-le received a unique bronze vase from the Junior girls, and a Roycroft set from the lnter-Sorority Council. On the night of the eleventh the faculty entertained Dr. Fosdick at a party given in our new lunch-room. Twelve tables were laid, each representing a month of the year, and appropriately decorated. Each teacher was seated at the table which represented the month in which her birthday occurs. Later they withdrew to the girls' gymnasium, where they concluded their celebration with music and stunts. So, through the co-operation of faculty, alumni, and the student body, Dr. Fosdick's seventy-third birthday was, indeed, made a happy one for him and hundreds of other folks. All honor be to him! lVlay he enjoy many more birthdays, each one happier than the last, and continue to drink from the fountain of perpetual youth, the students of lVlasten Park, so that he grows younger every year. CORINNE DENNENY. THE CHRONICLE 9 llllllllnnnunlIllnnllIllIllIuInnnsInlnnlllnululnunl nnnnu Q Quant Awarha A The Honor Award Committee of lVlasten Park High School, ap- pointed in the spring of 1921, by Dr. Fosdick, has, indeed, accom- plished its purpose in rewarding those who have excelled in the daily routine of lessonsby successfully performing the duties assigned to it. Even though this committee has lost its former chairman through the absence of lVlr. Penniman, its work has been steadily advancing under the guidance of lVlr. Coffran, who was recently appointed to fill that vacancy. On Class Day, 1923, the fruits of the efforts of the committee were apparent, for bronze pins, in addition to the honor certificates, were awarded to fifteen students, whose standings on the Star Roll 'were '95 and over. Lack of funds prevented the presentation of silver and gold pins to those who had attained positions on two and three Star Rolls, respectively. At this time also, special awards of handsome silver medals were made to recognize those who had brought singular honor to lVlasten Park in interscholastic contests along intellectual lines and similar medals were ,presented to certain Seniors who had been neither absent nor tardy during their high school course. On April 16, 1924, the honor studentsonce more had the distinc- tion of being the guests of honor on lVlasten's third Honor Day. The athletes had always had their special days of recognition and Debate, Music, and the countless other activities, which make high school days memorable, had been greeted with applause, so those who had distinguished themselves by their intellectual ability enjoyed the honor not only of occupying the center section of the Maud", but also of hearing their names read from the platform. Many were the thrills when they heard their own name or those of their friends read from the wonderful list! The speaker, Rev. lVlr. Broughton, also con- tributed to the success of the program by his most inspiring address, in which he made a most earnest plea for an all-round development- "Nothing to excess," as the Greeks expressed it-and most sincerely urged the students to seek the higher intellectual training offered at college. Extracts from Roosevelt's "Letters to His Children" also added the weight of influence and then "the Spires of Oxford," that charming poem, portraying the invincible spirit of service in the ap- parently careless college boys at Oxford during the war, echoed through the auditorium and a program, thoroughly enjoyed by all was over! The afternoon school, too, was not without its Honor Day. Their speaker, lVlr. Rich, based his theme upon the five dangers to civiliza- tion as recently pointed out by the Pope: Excessive pleasureg Dis- gust with hard work, Hatred: Lack of respect for authority, and lack of interest in spiritual things. The speech provided food for thought for both teachers and pupils. Through the efforts of the Honor Awards Committee Masten Park may some day succeed in establishing an honor society, not unlike the "Phi Beta Kappa" of the colleges. MARGARET FABER, I0 THE CHRONICLE r I he Stamina nf the Immigrant Prize Oration in Columbia Oratorical Contest. There are many subjects in regard to which' there exists a great diversity of opinion. One of these is immigration. Since the begin- ning of our national existence, people have assumed three distinct attitudes toward the subject. There are those who oppose all immi- gration, those who advocate the open door policy without any re- striction, and those who believe in moderate restriction. The last course is the one I would recommend for the following reasons: I invite you to consider the experiences of the past as they bear upon our immigration policy--lest we forget. The services that the immigrant has rendered are invaluable. During the Revolutionary war he fought shoulder to shoulder with his more Americanized brothers, to free us from EngIand's despotic power. In the war of 1812 he fought with equal courage and fearlessness to insure the free- dom of the seas. In the Civil war he proved his loyalty and patriot- ism by combating that most undemocratic institution, slavery. We point with pride to the accomplishments of our nation in the past fifty years. The great west has been opened and settled. Who made it possible to develop our great farm lands? Who was it that made it possible to build the railroads which penetrate every part of our domain, our trans-continental railroads, our canals, and all the great public works of every imaginable variety, which have contrib- uted so greatly to the progress, prosperity, and development of this nation. It was the immigrant! What induces the immigrant of today to come to this land of opportunity? Europe and America 1 compare theml The one, old and crafty, the other, young and virileg Europe, bur- dened with the crime of centuriesg America, active with her future, clear of conscience: upon one side the privileged classesg upon the other, reward of merit. Europe, seething, raging with po- litical strifesg America calm, dispassionate, with a government as strong as Gibraltar. One is frantic for warg the other imperturable, admirable in both peace and war. Upon one side, there is despairg upon the other, hope. I-low unlike the two! Europe persecutesg America tolerates. The one in want and misery, sunken in aflilictiong the other in plenty, overflowing with wealth and prosperity. Could there be any other choice than America? What are the arguments lodged against the immigrant today? The immigrant is poorg the immigrant adds nothing to the wealth of the nation at the time of his arrival. It is true that he is poor: but were those who came to this country during the past century rich? Did they bring anything to this country except stout hearts THE CHRONICLE Il and willingness to work, a desire to become useful? Are the immi- grants of today any worse than those who preceded them? They are lgrecisely of the same character. They are of the same flesh and loo . The foremost exponents of the policy advocating a further ex- clusion of the immigrant maintain that a, labor shortage exists in this land, and that the immigrant is taking the place of the American la- borer. It is undeniable that the foreign laborer displaces the Ameri- can workman, but in doing so he assumes the burden of the heaviest work unflinchingly, thereby bettering labor conditions, making wages higher, and hours of labor shorter. Should a labor shortage exist in this country when so much of our great southern and western lands are yet undeveloped? IVIove the ports of entrance, establish them along the coast near to the field of labor. These immigrants cannot go far inland. Their money is exhausted. Is it surprising that they huddle on the East Side, in the dark anarchy-reeking recesses of the large cities, when our government permits them to settle in such places? Carry them to Virginia, Carolina, Iowa and Minnesota, lands which lead to greater opportunities and a place in the sun. Look back with me for a-moment over that horrible period, through which we have just passed. More men were killed, mas- sacred and mutilated and more innocents were made to suffer in that war, than in all the wars the world has ever witnessed. What part did the immigrant play in that awful struggle? Coming from every part of our country and from every class of the community, they fought like men, and died like heroes. Nobody asked .whence they came, they knew their duty, they knew how to obey and how to fight, and counted not the cost. Look at our country's huge service Hag. Read the honor roIl.' Name after name is foreigng names in blue and names in gold. No one dares deny that the foreigners gave freely of their flesh and blood for the preservation of those ideals of freedom and democracy for which America. fought-ideals with which they were hardly acquainted. Yet they sensed the American spirit and gave their last full measure of devotion for the cause of liberty. No one will deny that the Jew, the Pole, the Italian, the Slav is doing his share toward the maintenance of the principles of government in the United States. They unite with their fellow citizens in love, in venera- tion for the flag, and are ready at all times, in common with their fel- low-Americans. , When a man becomes a citizen of the United States, his nation- ality is unimportant. I"Ie brings with him such gifts as he pos- sesses, and all of them combined, have brought about that remarkable being, the finest the world has ever known-the composite American. Go to all the cities of the land, visit all the states of the union, note the men and women who have left their mark and impress upon their communities, read the story of their accomplishments and you will find among them immigrants, and the sons and daughters of immi- grants, from every land and every clime. HERMAN TEIBEL, 12 THE CHRONICLE E112 Alumni Asasnriatinn nf im. as. One winter evening in l92l a little group of loyal Mastenites met at the home of Miss Elizabeth Grabau to talk over a matter that each had pondered earnestly in his heart,-the subject of a "rebirth" for the Alumni Association of lVlasten Park I-Iigh School. There had been an association in the old days but it had died a natural death. To reform, reorganize, and start anew, was the task they set before them. One thought was uppermost in every mind-one question they asked themselves: "What can we do that will give to every graduate of lVlasten Park an opportunity to strengthen the friendships of high school days, to kindle anew the fires of love and loyalty to his Alma Mater, and to express this love in concrete form through service toi ward a common goal?" In this spirit the new Alumni Association was formed. The little group of leaders consisted of members of the Class of 191 6. Therefore it was natural and fitting that the first meeting should be a gathering of that class. It was most appropriate, also, that they should gather in honor of their beloved "Pop" who, in March of that year, was celebrating his seventieth birthday. And so, on March IZ, I92I, at a birthday dinner, the Masten Park Alumni Association was urebornf' The first general meeting was held in June, l92l. Following the precedent established then, there has been a June meeting each suc- cessive year on the evening following Commencement, at which time we take pleasure in welcoming to our ranks the class which has just been graduated from lVlasten Park. As a token of our welcome, free membership for one year is given to each new alumnus. By the following June H9221 one of the biggest undertakings of the Association was well under way-the raising of funds for the Masten Park-Fosdick Scholarships to be established at the University of Buffalo. Up to May of this year almost 354,000 has been con- tributed. "S5,000 by June!" is our slogan. If we reach our goal the first awards can be made to members of the Class of I925. This will mean work,-work and co-operation and a spirit of loyal service. It will require the same spirit that prompted the gen- erous gift of the Class of 1922, that made possible the presentation of a play which netted more than 515300 for the fund-the spirit that set aside a portion of the proceeds from the School Concerts that the goal we had set ourselves might be reached. Work-co-operation-a worthy aim. These things we must have if we are to make the Alumni Association the power that we want It THE CHRONICLE I3 to be. l-low often, in the past three years, our "Pop" has spoken to us on just this theme-that we, as an association, shall stand or fall just in proportion as We devote our energies to some Worthy end, big- ger and broader than the pleasure of social gatherings-bigger even, than the strengthening of old friendships. We must not only come together but work together on some definite task for our Alma Mater. The Scholarship Fund has given us one task. When this is finished there will be others waiting for the workers. Class of 1924, we need you! fAnd we like to think that you need usl. We need your "pep" and your enthusiasm to balance the staicl and sober judgment of the "old grads." We need your arclor and your love for Alma Mater now, before the years to come shall cool it. Come, and let us prove to you our Welcome! aa ALMA MATER O golden beacon 'neath sky of blue, Our steps thou'st guided, and taught us true To live a life unstained and pure, Have faith, achieve, love right, endure. Tho' with regret we leave thy sight, We'll ne'er forget thy precepts brightg And though we part, divide our ways, lnstilled in heart shall be thy rays.

FINAL The Nlasten Slam Em, VOL. XXIV BUFFALO, N. Y., APRIL 1, 20 A. C+. Price, Some Smiles CLASH IN THE AIR A dire catatsrophe befell Mr. William I. Vveinbach and Mr. G. J. Ambs early this morning when the aeroplanes of these gentlemen collided above the corner of High and Dizzy streets. Air Traffic Cop Witter reported that Weinbach was speed- ing to the corner store to purchase a pint of milk for his wife, when the accident occurred. Ambs claimed that the motor of his machine had stalled and as he was cranking it he was hit. An excited throng, upon viewing their swift descent to the earth, had already gathered. The first to arrive at the scene was Gertrude Leininger and Clara Cloos, reporters for sl fe ,Ig 'P ako-v PX CHIEF JUSTICE DONHLD SCHIVENK This remarkable Iileenes: of the Justice has just been completed by the artixt, Margaret Milley the DAILY TATTLER.

Dr. Benjamin Obletz was called and with him came Nurse Mildred Augustine. An open-shop re- porter rushed up in the very person of Ralph Buth. Fresh supplies of spectators arrived among whom could be recognized Mrs. Blanch Butt, Madame Margaret Day and Mrs. Erna Koberstein, all dwellers in the neighborhood. Numerous air-garage men were seemingly magnetized to the scene and the familiar members of the crowd hailed john Harris, Whitney Pat- terson and Ralph Philbrook. In the guise of a poet seeking inspiration came Velda Muma, while with flowing tie and a blue- song on his lips Alvin Macklem, the mel- oncholy musical comedy star, stood aghast. A grind organ, turned by Ro- land Logel approached, in the wake of which Alice Kidder was seen doing a gypsy dance, and the scene took on a gala aspect. On came the horde-Har- old Farber, driving a waffle-wagon, Del- ford Fedderman, putting mustard on steaming hot-dogs, and an ice-cream boy who was none other than our own Charlie Standart. At this moment the ambulance came into view with Norman Glassman at the wheel and Oliver Hosterman tense- ly clanging the bell. Internes Harrington Woodworth and Donald Beesing carried VVeinbach into the car amidst the screams of Mrs. Alma Burow, the excitable shop- keeper, who had lost the sale of a pint of milk, and Roy Lord, a strolling piano tuner. Ambs declared that he was not much injured but would sue for damages anyway, as he had lost weight and valu- able time from his shoe business. At this the crowd dispersed and left Theodore Meibohm and Jacob Benderson, lawyers who had come seeking a job, standing in utter silence. To add to this unusual phe- nomenon appeared the ever punctual Florence Anderson and Milton Bergman, photographers for the Hourly Scream, too late however, to secure pictures for their paper. Throughout this paper we have fol- lowed the custom now in Vogue among intelligent people, of calling a married Woman by her own name rather than that of her husband. 46 THE CHRONICLE mm THE MASTEN SLAM Editor Extraordinary ..........,.............

The league, through the efforts of their committee, Mrs. Agnes Smeja, Miss Gleni- ries S. Tillis, Hon. Nathella F. Lasher, and Miss Mary T. Gmerek has succeeded at last in passing an amendment which states that due to their superiority of women all executive ofiices in the nation, state and city shall be filled by women only. BACHELORS' CLUB WILL ADMIT WOMEN At a recent meeting of the famous Bachelor Club of Buffalo, Arthur Frietag, proposed the admission of women. The first to distinguish herself thus was Miss Elizabeth Frey. The latest members are Miss Marion Goetz, Mrs. Ruth Haiman, and the Misses Beatrice Beuerman, Helen Geyer, Lucy Kawczynska. Due to the rising popularity of the club, Mrs. Lois Day selected a committee of Mesdames Evelyn Beyer, Hazel Brown, Catherine Dwyer and Esther Koehler, to draw up tests whereby applicants must be capable of accurately swatting flies, thriftily bit- ing square holes in doughnuts and econo- mically waving menls mustaches, before they will be considered for entrance. Mrs. Monica Sahlen, Miss Jennie Simon, Ma- damoiselle Helen Kozanowska, Senorita Dorothy Selden and Miss Mildred Paine have the distinction of being the first to successfully pass the examination. SOCIETY A melodrama entitled, "The Adven- tures of the Bobbed Haired Maidens," will be presented next Christmas night for the benefit of Starving Saxaphone Blowers.

CHARITY BALL Successful, brilliant and vivid, the Charity Ball was proclaimed thus as the outstanding event of the season by its promoters Mrs. Ruth Nauert and Mrs. Dorothy Zeaska. The spoils of praise were gratefully received by the hard- working committee composed of Senorita Eleanor Walker, Senor VVilliam Dale, Madamoiselle Beatrice Gishler, Monsieur George DeWein, and Mrs. Irma Kumpf. It took place the 42nd of May in the spacious ballroom of Mrs. Lucille Davis' home on Myth Street. Guests from the four corners of the earth arrived to par- take in this generous contribution toward the Joint Fund. Among the most noted patrons and patronesses were Frau Helen Pfeil, Viscountess Dorothy Wagner, Vis- count H. Ulrich, Duchess of New Yorkg C. Tills, president of the Republic of Junk, Francis Andres, Governor-General of Lone Islandg William Bregger. Floor manager, Henry Kumpf, was discussing the merits of the latest dances with Henry Miller.

A trium- virate composed of Alexander Kovach, Joseph McCarthy and Howard Lau were publicly announced as the heaviest con- tributors toward the Fund by the Finance Committee of the VVhole, Kellogg Mar- vin and Herbert Beitz, prominent mem- bers of the Chamber of Commerce. . REUNION AT THE BUFFALO NORMAL A reunion of the class of 1928 was held at the Buffalo Normal last evening. The exercises were presided over by Dr. Ed- ward C. Peck, principal of the school and a member of the Class of '28, who has returned, after a leave of absence of two years at Oxford where he received the degree of Ph.D. from Dr. Raines, head of that institution. The arrange- ments for the reunion were supervised by Mrs. Mildred Dietrich, assisted by Mrs. Marion Ewing, alumni of the school. In honor of the arrival of the Principal, the Misses Mehnert and Hildagard Launs- path, teachers at the school, issued short notice invitations to his friends and class- mates. Everyone accepted except Sylvia Stradtman and Louis Wollenburg, who are teaching in far-off Japan. To this social affair Reporter Hoefle unwillingly strode suffering agony from an attack by Mrs. Ruth Vogel, Mrs. Ethel Wind and Mrs. Mildred Zangerle, due to the fact that he described their dinner gowns alike on a previous social occasion given in honor of Florence Johnson, the artist. While Miss Bernice Hobbs stood at the gate post contemplatinguthe sunset she was lightly tapped on the shoulder. Her psychological mind whirled with mis- givings, but on turning, she was relieved to encounter the countenance of Mrs. Elea- nor Henzler and also that of Mrs. Viola Jungfer, two members of the class. See- ing,no reason for further hesistancy the trio began to promenade up the gravel path and and as they completed an angle of ninety degrees who should they dis- cover but the leaders in the social world, Mrs. Esther Burkard, Mrs. Doris Bach- man, Mrs. Velma Eckner and Mrs. Mar- garet Katzmayer, voluably discussing the present social gathering. james jackson, Principal of a grammar school, was an additional although silent member of this quartet. Dorothy Buddenhagen and Mil- dred Beuerman, secretaries for the Eck- tenkamp and Shafer Children Cram Cor- portation, rode in state to the private en- trance. On nearing the palation struc- ture, soft music was discerned protruding from the musical instruments of Louis Love, Madame Corinne Denneny, Mrs. Bernice Plummer and Emil Kessler, the String Quartet of the Buffalo Symphony. After escaping the stately presence of Ladislaus Konowalski, the policeman, who faithfully guarded the entrance against unwelcome visitors, the group joined the rest of the company in the banquet hall. NOTES ON THE NOTED Mrs. Bessie Beuerman has returned to Buffalo from a week's trip through Pales- tine in her new airplane, the Davidson eight, invented by Virginia Davidson.

The pris- oner entered with the lawyer for the de- fense, John G. Sweeney. The case was reviewed: Braun, President of the Na- tional Dancing Masters' Association, is ac- cused of depositing a counterfeit car- token in the Clayton Wallenhurst Bank. Prosecuting Attorney Howard A. Clark called the first witness, Paul T. Walker, bank clerk, who testified to the truth of the statement. The second witness, Eugene Gottlieb, stenographer at the bank, also testified that he had seen that token in Braun's pocket. The case looked dark until the appearance of Madame Juanita Dingler, who swore that Braun never deposited any money whatsoever in any bank. Leonard Goldberg, the Presi- dent of the bank, and Howard V. Moses, Vice-President, advocated dropping the case as Hilda Yochelson, High Mogul of the Amalgamated Housekeepers' Associa- tion, and a noted parton of Braun's, was unable to testify.

It is alleged that he had been re- fused a fourth piece of pie at the res- taurant kept by jennie Chrzanowska and Irene Puerner. This causing despondency, he failed to see the truck. An investiga- tion carried on by District Attorney Leon- ard Lakser exonerated the driver. Rosen was not noticeably injured. WEIGHTY WORK OF ' COUNCIL PROCEEDS Alderwoman Strathman today caused dissention in the city council by raising the ever present question of whether the members of our police force should wear brown or black leggins. Mayor Slaven, after expressing her opinion in a lengthy debate, retired in fatigue. Councilwomen Pilarska and Geiger declared that brown is usually very becoming to policemen. Councilman Klug inquired as to the state of the treasury, but was hastily assured by Clerk Stasinski that regardless of that, funds could be easily raised by taxation. Reporter' LaRue has been heard to de- clare that the weight of the matters dis- cussed by the Council can hardly be esti- mated by the public. 52 THE CHRONICLE A iiieafaagr frnm warren CE.

They are so characteristic of the man, so fine and noble, and so apr plicable far beyond the sphere of journalism, that if they alone sur- vived of all his utterances, they would suffice to secure him in the reverent and affectionate remembrance of the American people: "Remember there are two sides to every question. Get both. "Be truthful. "Get the facts. Mistakes are inevitable, but strive for accuracy. I would rather have one story exactly right than a hundred half wrong. "Be decent. Be fair. Be generous. "Boost-don't knock. There's good in everybody. Bring out the good in everybody, and never needlessly hurt the feeling of any- body. "in reporting a political gathering, get the factsg tell the story as it is, not as you would like to have it. "Treat all parties alike. If there's any politics to be played, we will play it in our editorial columns. "Treat all religious matters reverently. "If it can possibly be avoided, never bring ignominy to an inno- cent Woman or child in telling of the misdeeds or misfortunes of a relative. Don't wait to be asked, but do it without the asking. "And, above all, be clean. Never let a dirty word or suggestive story get into type. "I want this paper so conducted that it can go into any home without destroying the innocence of any child." The man who could thus envisage his responsibility in issuing a newspaper as not merely a business or profession, but a high form of kindly human service, could be trusted to deal with the tasks of government in the same spirit. That in all sincerity he strove so to do, and that from his deathbed he sent out a message of brotherhood and kindness, of peace and good will, in the name of Christ,--for this we cherish his memory with gratitude.

Blissful oblivion degenerates when interrupted and becomes virtual unpleasantness. Were you ever asleep? Were you ever awakened from that sleep? It matters not, the instrument or the cause. It may have been an alarm clock, or a heavy hand: perhaps a shoe or slipper cast with pernicius intent, or a damper rnissle, as a glass of waterg the result, however, is the same. A sudden contraction of muscles, per- haps a sound of dismay or anger, and then a lightening rush to retaliate upon the person or instrument which has so thoroughly dashed your dreams. Think of trying to do housework when the bed is calling so loudly. Think of rubbing your sleep-heavy eyes and then suddenly realizing that algebra is as yet unfinished. Think of that, if it is not 'too difficult. Oh! the thoughtlessness of mothers and teachersg the cruelty of alarm clocks, curses be showered on their inventor, they .surely awaken in me a dire hatred. Perhaps I am prejudiced, perhaps I dwell too Iong on sleep. It may be true that this subject requires no defending. Possibly it never will become obsolete. You are ex- perienced. You recognize the crashing ring of "Big Ben." I will Ieave to you the solution of this problem. Shall we be deprived of that nature- 'given necessity?

Some of the girls assisted in the Nutrition classes, others made a study of literature relating to health. Two final project reports, entitled "A Study of the Health Prob- lem of Buffalo," written by Mildred R. Rosenberry and Wilma C. Maunz, were published in the May number of the National Food and Health Magazine. Hurrah for our girls! Were you one of the many who wondered why you heard com- ing from one of the Food Laboratories, the unmistakable evidence that London Bridge or Farmer-in-the-Dell was there being enjoyed? The classes in Child Care entertained on successive Fridays the kin- dergarten children from Schools No. 8 and No. 48, respectively. It is still a question as to whom enjoyed the parties most, the guests, the hostesses or the spectators. Have you ever visited the enormous building at the foot of Porter Avenue? The Homemaking girls found their trip through the Buffalo pumping station of intense interest, as well as adding to their knowledge of community affairs. F RESI-IMAN ln October, the I-lomemaking classes welcomed their mothers and friends at their annual exhibit of Canned Fruits and Millinery. There were over l l00 containers of fruits and jellies on exhibit. The Freshman I-lomemaking class celebrated I-lomemaking Day on Wednesday, May 28th, by presenting "Nan O'l-lealth and Peggy O'Joy,', a health play.

Kenneth Adams 'K L Qlw PHom may Sfff' Grail' On September 7, hundreds of graduated frosh, commonly called Sophomores awaking to the clarion call of the alarm clock, and to the fact that they no longer might lie abed in the morning, set forth to pay their respects to the exalted Juniors and almighty Seniors of Masten Park High School. Friday, December 21, however, was Sophomore Day, and on that day the Sophomores held the center of the stage or sat, for once, where they could see the stage. The Sophomores conducted the regular Christmas exercises of the school. After the singing of carols, the Sophomores presented Dickens' "Christmas Carol." The cast consisted of Raymond Lewis, Lawrence Hart, lrving Reiman, Margaret Dahlquist, Ruth Norton, Enrico Scagnelli, john Wollenburg, Alfred Retter, Cecilia Manoff, Emmet Frost, William Carpenter, George Woltz, Bessie Goldstein, Howard Diller, William Jerge, Gertrude Ruderisch, Eleanor Morgan, Grace Noellar, Walter Curfman, Clarence Wertheimer, Cerene Keller, George Smith.

A ff VU zxxx JI The past year has seen at Masten Park a new and enthusiastic in- terest in debating. At the beginning of the year matters were very discouraging, as we had lost our coach and had only two veterans as a nucleus for our team. However, the boys and girls were undaunted and with the true Masten spirit they worked hard and were able to place debating among the popular activities. ln our final tryout, there were sixteen candidates for positions on the teams. Much credit is due lVliss Alport and Miss Lee, who coached the teams. The support by the faculty and student body helped greatly in bringing us through victoriously. We also owe much to Dr. Fos- dick for his timely suggestions, which helped us in overcoming many difficulties. On March l3th we defeated Bradford High School in a dual de- bate, IO to 8. The question debated was: "Resolved, That the United States pay to its ex-service men a bonus." Our affirmative team, composed of Leonard Schoenborn Ccaptainl, Everett F. Manke. Hilda Yochelson and Julia Piekarski, alternate, defeated Bradford negative team, 7 to 2. Our negative team, composed of Wilfrid Kerwin Ccaptainj, Alvin Coplon, Leonard Lackser and Joseph Schabo, alternate, were defeated at Bradford by a 6 to 3 decision. As we were unable to arrange a debate with Niagara Falls, the de- bating season was closed May 6th, with a debate between two of our teams. The question was: "Resolved, That the United States should enter the Permanent Court of International Justice, according to the Hughes Plan." The affirmative, upheld by Wilfrid Kerwin, Leonard Schoenborn and Marion Slaven, alternate, bowed to the negative team, consisting of Joseph Schabo, Herman Teibel and Lydia Budziak, alternate, by a 6 to 3 decision.

Miss Alport and Miss Lee Early in October the Girls' Debating Society reorganized, and with great enthusiasm immediately started work. During the year each girl participated in at least one informal debate. A few of the questions discussed were: "The Minimum Wage Law," "The Philippine Question," "The Soldiers' Bonus Bill," "Frances Justification in Occupying the Ruhr." One of the interesting debates was on "The Proper Use of Vanity Compacts by High School Girls." X Gold "Ms, were awarded to the following' girls for participation in inter-scholastic debates: Marion Slaven, Hilda Yochelson, Lydia Buclziak, Julia Piekarska. This year the girls held several social meetings at homes of the members, as well as a sleigh-ride and a theater party. A banquet, at which many of the alumni were present wasiheld at the Hotel Touraine and concluded the year's activities. The society extends its most sincere thanks to its advisors, Miss Alpert and Miss Lee, for their untiring efforts in its behalf. We offer our best Wishes to the society of the coming year for a successful season. THE SENIOR ORCHESTRA THE JUNIOR ORCHESTRA THE.

The members have the use of the school's radio appara- tus, which consists of a receiving set, a transmitting set and various other necessary radio supplies. On the evening of Monday, April 7, l924, Radio Night was held under the auspices of the Seneca Vocational and Masten Park Radio Clubs. Over seven hundred people attended. There were lectures by noted mechanics and demonstrations of Various high- priced sets. It proved a great success. The Club is deeply indebted to all members of the faculty who have helped to make the club a success. 61112 williams Ginn sinh master: ln the fall of l9l9, the Williams College Alumni Association of Eulfalo decided, inasmuch as Williams College was unrecognized as a donor of a cup, to offer a cup to be known as the Williams All-around Championship Trophy. The Buffalo High School amassing the largest number of points in recognized inter-school competition was to be the recipient of this cup. Football, basketball, track and baseball were recognized as major sports, while hockey, tennis, cross-country and swimming were designated as minor sports. V In the ensuing sport year of 1920-ZI, Masten went to the front by winning the Harvard Cup and finished the year in first place. The 'Xllfilliams Committee, at a rousing assembly, presented lVIasten's first Williams Cup. When another year rolled around, the other schools were determined to seize lVlasten's laurels. However, lVlasten again forged to the front by virtue of first place in football, second in basketball, hockey and relay. These places swelled our point total and found Masten winner of the second Williams Cup. When school opened in September, 1922, Lafayette was predicting lVlasten's downfall. After our heart-breaking football loss to them and the subsequent third place in football, their prediction seemed true. However, the basketball and hockey teams came through in splendid style, each capturing a first. These points with the others earned by THEY CHRONICLE 75 the other teams evenecl up matters, and l923 found Masten Winner of the third consecutive Williams Cup. This miraculous and enviable record hung up by lVlasten is one that will undoubtedly endure and one that the other schools will long fail to equal. It is fitting that mention be made here of the men who made their letter three consecutive times in the three years We won the cup: Following are the names: GEORGE BARTON, hockey. ALLAN COLLINS, captain of track, football. ALFRED DAHL, swimming, football.. CLEON HYDE, captain of basketball. HAROLD KENNEDY, basketball, football. REINHARD LOTZ, track, football. Cl-IAS. lVlcKOWNE, hockey. JAMES lVlcKOWNE, captain of hockey. EDWARD PECK, captain of football, hockey, baseball. CONRAD SCHENK, captain of football. . FLOYD SIMPSON, captain of basketball, crosscountry, baseball, football. GEORGE STRIKER, track football. NORTON VEDDER, captain ofbaseball, football, hockey. It is only right that mention be made also of the efforts of lVlr. Heck and Mr. Seelbach, to whom much of the credit belong. Only through their wise leadership was the feat made possible. Masten Park hopes next year to again welcome the singing Williams Cup Committee. At the end of next year, shall we have in our trophy case four cups with the name of Williams and the name of Masten? ALLAN SCHMAHL. Ea FOOTBALL 3 f I j When the football season of 1923 opened, 'M l Coach Crawford was confronted with a serious f 0 A' N 9, 7 problem. With but one veteran, Captain Vic- +,,,'l.. Q' kers, as a nucleus, he had to turn out a cup Q HS! X , at Qt - f N winning team. However a little ray of sun- ! r ,. shine appeared when Simpson joined the 'M""'N' ""'M-- squad, so that with Vickers, Simpson and Drews, he had an excellent backfield assured. His real work was to get a line to support that backfielcl. So that the boys would get plenty of experience before the Cup Games, a nine- game schedule was arranged, providing for five games before the Cup Series. This year another new plan was tried. Students had been com- plaining that they had no opportunity to Witness their team in action before the Cup Games. So, to satisfy them, games were arranged with Syracuse Central and Tonawanda High Schools at Buffalo. On September 29th, at Delaware Park, the team played its first game against a strong and almost invincible Alumni aggregation, boasting of such stars as Fisher, lggulden and Dillingham. The game resulted in a 20-0 loss for the 1923 team, but although a disappoint- ment to the players, it surprised the Alumni players, who congratu- lated our boys on the fighting spirit they showed. The next Saturday, October 6th, at the Baseball Park, lVlasten Park entertained the Syracuse Central team. After a very bad first half, when the score stood 6-0 in favor of the Central New York boys, Nlasten came out and completely outplayed Syracuse to a win, I2-6. The following week, Tonawanda High School came to Buffalo, and our boys accepted a 27-O defeat. Their experience was too much for our boys, who fought gamely against heavy odds. On October 20th, the team went to Erie and met the Erie Cen- tral High School. Again the weakness of our team was shown as the Pennsylvanians defeated us 39-O. This was the worst set-back Mas- ten had received in quite a few years. On the next Saturday we went to Rochester to meet the Fresh- man team of the University of Rochester. The boys went out on the field to do or die. They "did,"' and in a royal manner. The lowly College Frosh were defeated 32-O, nearly enough to avenge the de- feat by Erie. Then the Cup Series started. lVlasten drew Hutch, the favorite for the Cup in the first game on November 3rd. Hutch made up for her defeat last year by defeating us l2-0 on a wet, slippery field, on which our backs couldnit get started. Lafayette came next. The 78 THE CHRONICLE boys made up their minds that Lafayette must and would be defeated by us. But, alas, for our good intentions! Lady Luck did not perch on our banner, but Wenii over to the enemy, so that our "friendly ene-- miesn were able to beat us 6-0 by a fluke. But that stopped the scoring of our opponents, but sad to say, it stopped our scoring, too, for on November 17th South Park was played to a scoreless tie, while on Thanksgiving Day, Masten and Tech played a hard game with the same result. The season could not be called very successful by the games won and lost, nor by our standing in the Series, for we were tie for fourth place with Technical, but still it helped to develop and experience men for next year and the 1924 team, under Captain John Scheller, should have a very successful season. N The members of the 1923 team wish to express their apprecia- tion to the students and faculty for the loyal support they received in the past season.

When the call for candidates was issued, but four of last year's champions responded, thus the outlook was none too bright. After several days of strenuous practice, the team met an all- star alumni aggregation, receiving a slight setback, l2-l 0. One week later, we faced Kenmore, losing I0-9, but forcing them to play two extra five-minute periods. g We then managed to shake off the Hjinxn long enough to win over the State Normal team 9-4. The following evening we suffered defeat at the hands of Niagara Falls I5-I4. On january 4tlw We 'went to Rochester, where West High bear" us 24-22 in an extra period game. The result of our first Yale Cup game was disheartening. Lafay- ette defeated us 25-l 4. Nichols 'iPreps" were beaten I7-l0, then the State Normal team got away with a I5-I2 count. Our boys then showed their basketball ability, defeating Hutch- inson I2-6, next South Park 24-l0, and Technical Z2-I l. We were beaten 28-27 at Nlanlius by St. john's Military Academy, but this de- feat is no discredit to our team as St. ,lohn's are the State preparatory school champions and it took them an extra period to win by a lone point. Lafayette then administered a 3l-l5 defeat, on their utrickn court. The team at once came back with real fighting spirit, turning back the Canisius Freshmen 22-I4, and routing Hutchinson 2l-l 6. We seemed destined to lose when out of town, for We were de- feated 25-l7 by Acquinas Institute at Rochester. South Park was easily outclassed 31-8, but the final game of the cup series with Technical proved to be quite the opposite. Our boys offered stub- born opposition, but were beaten 23-ZI. This loss created a tie for second place between Masten and Technical. A play-off was, therefore, necessary to determine which team should go to the Meadville, Pa., tournament. Tech upset the "dope-can" and beat us I8-IZ. As the team filed into the dressing room, following the last game, one of the players exclaimed: "Well, gang, in Victory or Defeat, Masten Park!" which truly expressed the spirit of the team. The following received the much-coveted major "Mn: l. Ryan, Captain Chas. Miller ' K. Adams, Captain-elect lVl. Prechtl G. Swerdfeger W. Alway Hal Clark M. Allen, Manager HOCKEY .Z Q?

The score was I-O. We opened the season by beating our strongest op- ponent, Nichols, 4-0. We then went down the sched- ule unscathed, until we again played Nichols. Masten took the small end of this game after a hard-fought contest, I-0. This was one of the only two games lost in the Michigan Cup race. Incidentally, Masten won every outside game played, including Cornell Frosh, East High of Rochester, the American Legion and the Lakewoods of Cleveland, who are consid- cred the best public school hockey team in Ohio. It is interesting to note that we avenged the single defeat of last year at the hands of Lafayette, by beating them in both "Cup" games. The climax was reached when Masten met Nichols at the Arena, Niagara Falls, Ont. This was one of the most thrilling hockey bat- tles ever fought between Michigan Cup contenders. The Masten alight" was prominent during the game, especially in the last five minutes of the second half. ln spite of the lack of practice, there be- ing little ice, our team fought their way to second place. Special honor is clue Capt. McKowne and his brother, Charles, All-I-Iigh men and the gratis coaching of Ed. Peck is appreciated.

The boys deserve great credit for the spirit they showed during the entire season, handicapped though they were through inexperience and the lack of a suitable pool. The following men deserve special mention: Captain Kumpf, "All High" utility mang Joe Gauthierg Edward Laube, second "All High" team, and William Collins, who placed in every meet in which he was entered. Great credit is also due Coach Rogers for his work in developing a team from new material. With every man back next year, the 1925 swimming team, under the leadership of Captain-elect Collins, hopes to bring a Syracuse cup to Masten Park.

Grampp, Bergman, Dussing, Drews, I-lann, Weller, McMullen and Moody were our point scorers in this meet. About a Week later the team traveled to Alfred University where they competed against thirty-three other high and preparatory schools in the annual Alfred lnter-scholastics. We were quite successful here, finishing fourth, the first Buffalo school to finish near the top. ln this meet the feature was the running of l-lann, who equalled the track record for the 440 yards run. The relay team broke the record for this event and brought back a handsome cup for our trophy case. The team consisted of Drews, Moody, McMullen and Hann. Other men to place in this meet were Drews in the l00 yards and 220 yards, and Guyette in the Javelin throw.

Although the team lost its first two cup games, it intends to go through the rest of the season without a defeat. The veterans are Kenny Hill, the stellar back-stop, Goodwin, Alway and Fedderman, last year's outfielders, and Captain Michael at first. The promising new men are, Fissler, all-high man from South Park in the outfield, Macklen and Miller at second, and Walser at short, Nesper and MacDonald performing on the mound. With this promising array of stars the team ought to take this yearis cup: The Alumni defeated us I I-9 in the opener, for, although our boys played air-tight ball the lack of experience lost the game. The second game was lost to Nichols 4-3, although Nesper only allowed them five hits. The next game with Hutch we lost 3-2, MacDonald allowing them only two hits, but an error in the eighth inning lost the game. Then Masten jumped into the win column by defeating Canisius 4-2.

Mr. Harold Braun of the Physical Education Department is coaching the team. Personnel of the team: Kenneth Adams fcaptj, Floyd Leonard, John Marynowski, Andrew Marchand, Russel Benton, Fred Marchand. JOE CLEARY, Mgr. of Tennis Glrnfm Gluuntrg The Masten Park Cross Country Team placed fourth in the Colum- bia run. Not to be discouraged by this poor showing, the team came back with true Masten Spirit and finished second in the Alfred run. They pushed Tech hard for first place, losing by a close margin of one point. ln answer to the call for candidates four veterans of last year's team and a large number of candidates were on hand. From this material Coach Seelbach developed as good a team as possible. Several letter men and a large number of promising runners will return next year. With these as a start I feel sure Allie will develop a good team next season. RAYMOND BAUMGART, Mgr. CROSS COUNTRY GIRLS' SWIMMING GIRLS' TENNIS THE CHRONICLE 95 Girls' Glennia The first sport in which the girls participate in the fall is tennis. Last fall a number of players entered the elimination contest, to de- cide the school players in the interscholastic tournament at the Park Club. The time was so short, however, before the interscholastic tournament began, that the school tournament was not finished. The following team had to be chosen, therefore, on its showing in the school tournament: Ruth Berner, Verna Corcoran and Betty Bayne. lVlasten Park did not win the cup, but it did make a fine showing, placing third, with South Park first and our friend, the enemy, La- fayette, second. Our hopes are high for a championship team next year, with many promising players returning. BETTY BAYNE. Zlirrzhman Athlrtirs One hundred and thirty girls came out for basketball and fifteen teams were organized for a tournament. Two picked teams, headed by Captains Dorothy Preston and Esther Boetcher, were chosen to represent the Freshman class. About eighty girls reported for volley ball and the ten teams had a spirited contest for the championship. The "Wizzards" and the "Whitewashers" took the first two places. ln September, it was announced that we would hike fifty miles. One girl still wonders when we are going on that fifty-mile hike. We have done better than that-sixty-five miles to date. The music department would appreciate parts of our singing. There will be tennis instruction for beginners this year, too, and a Freshman tournament, if it doesn't rain too much. Last year over a hundred girls learned the principles of the game in the gymnasium. The Freshmen last year were proud of the one girl who was awarded her small for winning one hundred and fifty points in one year. This year there will be at least five awarded. They stand for hard work, team play and good sportsmanship. .fl gs gp 1?-Q Q . is xg st' T I GIRLS' YELLOW TEAM THE CHRONICLE 97 Girlz' Atlilvtira Girlz' Eaavhall The games of this season have been played under the League. In this the Sophs, juniors and Seniors have each been represented by one team. Although "life is short and time is fleeting" the outcome has been made fair, by playing two rounds of games. The heavy hitters on the Senior team have kept the field mighty busyg the de- termination of the Juniors has made them a match for the rest and even though the Sophs are yet "babes in the woods" they have the pep to keep the rest on the bounce every minute. All-'round class spirit has been prevalent in the games and has made them as inter- esting as they have always been. BETTY SMITHER. Girlz' Ihtukvthall lnterclass basketball started in October with the Sophomores, juniors and Seniors competing. lt was nip and tuck between the juniors and Seniors as to the champions. When the series was com- pleted, the Juniors and Seniors were tie for first place. The games were all close and exciting and the season was one of the most suc- cessful in the history of girls' basketball in Masten Park. YELLOW AN D BLUE The yellow and blue teams were picked from the class teams. Blues won all three games in spite of the Yellow's game fight. Miss Hall refereed the first two games and Mrs. Lee of U. B., the final game. The Yellows gave a party in honor of the Blues after the completion of the series. HARRIET STUNBRO.

At Christmas time We made a happier Christmas for three children at the Cripplecl Children's Guild, by fulfilling their every Wish, as expressed in their letters to Santa Claus. We were happy also to contribute once more to the Pauline Ellis Scholarship fund.
