" There is a success that is greater
than wealth or titles. It comes
through making one,s work an in-
strument of greater service, and
larger living to one's fellow men."
HE editor has faced me with a delicate and difficult task, in asking
me to write an appreciation of my own father. The things
which a son, who has such a father, most intimately feels about
him cannot even be said, much less printed, and instead of
writing about the meaning of his fatherhood to his own
children, I should probably do better if I silently appealed to the imagin-
ation of those who have known him in the school. They might guess, if
they tried, what kind of father he would be in his own home.
The love and respect which have accumulated around him during the
half century of his teaching in Buffalo are fundamentally due, if I
understand the matter, to the entire genuineness andstraight-forward
ness of his character, to the absence in him of any duplicity and guile.
The first thing that any child of his would think of saying, therefore, is
that what he has seemed to be to generations of his students he really is,
and that by far the most powerful factor in his influence over his
children has been not any words of his or methods of discipline, but the
simple, towering fact that we trusted him absolutely, knew that his deeds
would always tally with his professions, and that there was no crooked
way in him.
There are, however, some specific things that can be said about his
methods of dealing with his children, which, practised on a larger scale
in the school, he used on us at home.
For one thing, his children were trained to be independent. We
were undoubtedly taught to obey, but we were insistently taught also
that the proper object of our obedience was inside us, not outside. I
recall no rules in the home, of the external, authoritative sort, but I
recall all manner of appeals to our sense of honor, our self-respect, and
our independent judgment as to what was right or wrong. Even when
we asked him what we ought to do, my father would repeatedly return
the question by inquiring what we thought of it ourselves. In our very
early childhood we were often called into the council of the family on
important decisions affecting the whole household, as though our parents,
instead of being an autocracy to govern us, were members of a democracy
I did not understand it then, but I see now that all this was inten-
tional-a program for educating the children to independence of thought
and judgment. At least I think it was that. My father knew nothing of
the then non-existent new psychology, I am not sure how much technical-
ly he knows about it now g but when I attend modern seances on the latest
methods of bringing up children, I am amazed to hear them called new.
All the best of them were in full blast in our home a long generation ago.
Of course there were limits to the freedom allowed. When we abused
our independence and tried smartly to take advantage of the democratic
family, my father had a way of landing on the right spot like a streak
of greased lightning, which discouraged further experiments with fresh-
ness and impertinence. But such occasions were so few that I can with
difliculty remember only two or three of them. We were not brought up
on thunder and lightning.
Perhaps one story will put the matter clearly. Falling into a fit of
ill-temper once when I was a lad of ten, I was startled to hear my father
cry out as if in alarm, "Where is Harry?" "Here I am," I said. "No,"
he decisively replied, "You are not Harry, Harry is lost somewhere, go
find him!" So, I wandered off through the house until I had gotten a
good grip on myself and could return, smiling, to report, "Here he is.
I found him."
That method of appealing to our best, instead of thundering against
our worst was characteristic of our home government. We were taught
to obey an inward monitor, so that when I first heard the Quaker doctrine
of the Inner Light, I knew, without being told, what it meant. To be able
to go it alone, think for ourselves, depend on ourselves, govern ourselves
from inside out, and in a pinch stand up for our judgment against all com-
ers--this was taken for granted as the ideal to be sought for and if, as we
grew older, the practice of this independence led us to differ from the paren-
tal judgment, my father did not shrink from that consequence. I have
never known him to try to decide anything for me that he thought by any
possibility I could approximately decide for myself.
For another thing, trained as we were for independence, we were
just as insistently trained for service. I cannot recall having the idea
even dimly present in my mind throughout my boyhood that wealth or
fame or any such external guerdon was a prize to be striven for. It was
taken for granted that usefulness was the only legitimate excuse which
anybody could give for being alive, and that, of course, we were all to
look forward to hard work, done as efficiently and as unselfishly as we
could possibly manage it. This ideal of life was not so much instilled in
us as a doctrine, it was assumed as a matter of course and was constantly
before us, exhibited and illumined in the way our parents themselves
The master passion of my father's life has been the investment he
has tried to make in the boys and girls who have come under his influence.
The real-estate he has cared most about has been staked out in developing
personalities whom he has helped. As for material rewards, I am sure
that at any time in the last half-century he could have said about his
teaching what Professor Palmer said 3 'fHarvard University pays me for
doing what I should gladly pay for the privilege of doing, if I could only
In these two main phases of our training at home--personal inde-
pendence and unselfish service-I suspect that we have the determining
qualities of my father's life. Around these two foci has been drawn the
ellipse of his character. Many elements within that circumference which
we have intimately enjoyed in the home I may not speak of. hereg his
saving sense of humor, his infinite respect for the sacredness of other
people's personalities, and, most notably in his training of his children,
his ingenuity in doing us good without our knowing it. When, for
example, growing unwary and unwise, I needed parental counsel, as every
youth sometimes needs it, he did not bring me up on the carpet and
read me a lecture. He took me fishing with him down the Niagara River,
and what he had on his mind naturally percolated into mine in the course
of the day. Painless dentistry is clumsy compared with his painless
impartation of sound advice.
I am writing this in Jerusalem, and it would not be fair to the facts
if I did not add that the One who long ago lived and taught here in the
Holy Land has had a masterful share in making possible the kind of
home in which we were brought up. The religion to which we were accus-
tomed from our youth was centered in the practical application of the
Christian spirit to daily life. If, as he lays down his active professional
Work, my father finds many rising up to call him blessed, there is nothing
accidental about so desirable a reward for fifty years of teaching. He
has taken very much in earnest a description of religion written long ago,
"What doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly, to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with Thy God."
Harry Emerson Fosdick.
An Appreciation of Dr. Fosdick
O the teachers of Masten Park High School, Dr. Fosdick has
filled for these many years a place far more exalted than
that of oflicial head of the school. It is true that as an
Si' administrator and leader in education he has made a record
equalled by few men of his generation, but in addition to this success
in the technique of the school executive he has been in a larger way a
father and friend to every teacher who has been privileged to work in
Masten Park. Endowed by nature with a personality overflowing with
good will for his fellows, a genial faculty for making friends, and imbued
with the ideal of unselfish service to teachers, pupils and community, he
has devoted his life to the best interests of those with whom he has
come in contact. If he had chosen to be a physician or a minister instead
of a teacher, his scholarly attainrnents, his broad knowledge of human
nature, his keen penetration and ready sympathy would have placed
him in the front rank of either of those professions, and these same
qualities have so endeared him to his teachers that every one has looked
to Dr. Fosdick for counsel, advice and sympathy in all of the joys and
sorrows of life. To us all he has been "guide, philosopher and friendg'
Now that he is giving up the busy routine of a lifetime and is retir-
ing "full of years and honors" we bid him Godspeed. Our love and
devotion go with him. May he live long and prosper.
In the name of the Faculty,
C. Brooks Hersey.
An Appreciation of Dr. Fosdick
9,5 some time or other during the course of every Mastenite's life
1q??gA3x',fj at the school on the hill, they come in contact with their youth-
ful leader, "Pop,"
Of his career little need be said, as it speaks for itself.
However his ideals and fatherly interest in each of his chil-
dren's problems command the respect, love and devotion of every Masten
graduate and undergraduate alike.
Service has been the keynote of Dr. Fosdick's career and it has been
his desire to see every student make this ideal of benefiting others, the
foremost in his thoughts. "Pop's" life is a living example of what service
has accomplished not only for himself but for others.
You will find that Dr. Fosdick's secret knowledge of that fountain
of perpetual youth which Ponce de Leon failed to find, lies in this one
fact, his perscnal contact with boys and girls.
Students have come and gone, doctors, teachers, journalists, musi-
cians and others, all of whom at some time or other went to "Pop" for
advice, which they knew would be given only after careful thought.
Untold problems have been solved for many, but the class of '26
realizes more fully the depth of his magnetic personality, for he is a
member of their class.
All honor and glory be to him, who through twenty-nine years has
guided the ship Master Park through the uncharted seas and in good
condition has turned the ship over to the new pilot. . Your rest is well
earned, Dr. Fosdick, and your numerous children rejoice in their com-
panionship with you through all the years.

THE PROPHETS AND SOME OF THE BUSINESS MEN
A Living Ideal
To those who enter the outside world for the first time are vouch-
safed dreams of accomplishment and visions of the heights of successful
endeavor. Too often the ideal is but a vague and elusive unreality, which,
when reached after a long and toilsome struggle, is a mere husk for which
more worthy objects have been cast aside.
The Class of 1926, however, has before it the example of success in
the man who stands at their head and yet numbers himself with them,
Dr. Fosdick. Few people can foretell with accuracy the results of years
of labor, so the Class is especially fortunate to have a remarkable model
of achievement through service for others as an ever-present guide.
Success to-day is usually reckoned as a one-man affair, but there is
a larger success made up of the favorable terminations of the careers of
many men who have been impelled and encouraged by the driving force
of a single man who submerged his personal desires for glory in theirs and
felt that he had gained his reward by their attainments.
Dr. Fosdick is such a man. He has been a lamp to the feet of thou-
sands who will always remember the aid which he accorded them. He
has been the fire of intellectuality and moral excellence from which his
students have lighted torches to illumine their pathway through life. He
has been the spring of inspiration of whose waters scores have drunk
A life thus spent can only be concluded after an uninterrupted series
of acts performed for the benefit of mankind. His work in the future
will continue to be as great and as far-reaching as his former efforts have
been. On his graduation he will pass to new fields of activity, leaving
behind at Masten Park a recollection of a deed well-done.
Let us then, Members of the Class of 1926, strive onward and upward
to reach the goal attained by our living ideal. Let us press forward to
new contacts with life and people, having for our watchword, Service.
And above all, let us enshrine in our hearts the memory of a man who
devoted the major portion of his life to starting others on the right road.
Lester D. Lopez.
It Can Be Done
Each step in the history of civilization has been made in the face
of opposition and difficulty. The majority of these steps have been taken
by men of valor, and intrepidity, by leaders in the van of thought, by
patriots, discoverers and Workers, and the slogan, "It can be done", has
been the incentive which made them capitalize their handicaps and with
strong moral courage attain the goal for which they sought. There is
110 inferiority that cannot be overcome. The World has been led and
conquered by men too weak to Walk, men with permanent physical
deformities, men Whose names were unknown until years after their labors
The greatest of all fears, the one common to all of us is the fear of
failure, and unless it is overcome, years of study and practice will avail
The aim of an education is not to acquire knowledge, but rather to
develop reliability and judgment, coordinate and decisive thinking, the
ability to face opposition squarely and use the qualities thus obtained to
the best advantage.

It Can Be Done
To the Class of 1926
rv"-q Y message to you at this time is naturally touched with a warmer
personal feeling than usual. There are particular circum-
H stances which lead my thoughts along certain familiar lines.
- "V 'l "" 'j.. You and I are graduating at the same time and entering a new
life. Untried experiences confront us, an entirely strange
future awaits us. What are we going to do with them?
I presume that our first thought is-"Come what will, one and all
will make good." With that aim in view we are perforce dedicated to lives
which are absolutely trustworthy, for any deviation from that character-
istic cannot be tolerated anywhere. Deceit and falsehood spell ruin in
every department of endeavor. We must be careful in our judgments, not
allowing ourselves to be swayed by prejudice, rumor or half truths. We
shall give ourselves to service for those whom we meet daily and not
suffer selfishness and forgetfulness of the rights and comforts of others
to rule our actions. At home, in our work, wherever we are, we shall be
bearers of good cheer, cherishing loving thoughts and extending at all
times an iniiuence which uplifts. In other words, we shall live up to the
very best that is in us at all times.
So will the Class of 1926 be a source of great happiness and a power

The dark clouds hung beneath the sun,
And poured out all their silver rain,
The clouds dispersed and ceased the storm
And then, the glorious night-time came.
I looked o'erhead and viewed
A sky of purplish-blue:--
And as I gazed, behold!
A lantern hung by God
Was lit before my eyes 3
Another burned, and I,
Child-like, longed to touch it.
One more was lit, one more!
Then twos and threes at onceg
And, 'ere I could turn about,
A hundred thousand burned,
And lit the heavens up.
As I this miracle
Beheld, I deeply asked
Within my heart and soul,
How any man could say
That God ne'er was, nor is,
Nor evermore shall be.
The sun may blot my stars' light out,
And clouds may soar beneath them toog
But still, my silvery guides do live.
Oh still, I have this comfort true.

MAY DAY DANCE--Alice Kumpf, Jane Cooper, Doris Oliver, Doreen Wagner,
Madeline Schlitzer, Marjorie Brauck, Alice Tromey, Ruth Henry
The Sophomores occupied the best seats in the house on December 23
while members of their class enacted the Christmas play. This time it
was "The Christmas Child Comes In" by Katherine Kester, dramatized
from the story "Christmas" by Zona Gale. Miss Lee ably conducted the
cast of the morning session. The same play was given in the afternoon
session under the direction of Miss Wendling. An additional afternoon
feature was the Girls' Glee Club, supervised by Miss E. Link. A more
suitable ending for the old year could hardly be imagined.
Perhaps the greatest development of the Sophomore class has been
the growth of a second year group in the afternoon session, rivalling that
of the morning session in size. Sophs, as you know, are the backbone of all
athletic and debating teams, starting as amateurs and becoming accomp-
lished veterans by the time they are juniors and seniors.
The school's Christmas fund contribution this year was 379083, the
largest amount ever cciected. The apportionments were as follows: Char-
ity Organization Society S300.00, Bureau of Public Welfare 9'p200.00, our
faithful helpers 956300. The balance, 322783, is held in reserve for assist-
ing worthy cases. Masten Park will, We hope, always be able to lend aid
in such deserving causes.

23. This date brought to the majority of us afternoon students a
pleasant thrill. We of the Freshman Class began to feel no longer grammar
school children but real Masten Park High School Students which made
us feel pretty big. This was the day the Freshmen enjoyed their first
real Masten Park assembly. Great school spirit was shown by the students
when Arthur Wagner led cheers and all were anxious to learn the songs of
our Alma Mater. The excitement waxed warm when two innings of World
Series Baseball was broadcast by radio. The fact that we certainly didn't
feel like attending classes that day was evident by the groan that was
uttered by the student body when the radio was disconnected. This
assembly clearly showed the pupils of the afternoon session that Doctor
Fosdick and his able afternoon assistant, Mr. Roberts, did not intend to
make High School all work and no play.
Oliver W. Mitchell.
23. On this evening, parents and teachers of the Freshman Class
observed "Parents Night". The first part of the evening was spent in the
meetings between parents and teachers, the showing of a French play in
one of our class rooms and the observance of the work done in our Physical
Training classes. The girls of the domestic science department furnished
an exhibition which was enjoyed by the mothers of the pupils. At a given
signal all adjourned to the auditorium where many scenes of Mas-
ten Park's activities were enjoyed. The school orchestra and Girls'
Glee Club furnished a pleasing part of the program. Dr. Fosdick then gave
an inspiring talk to both parents and pupils. From that evening the class
of '29 understood the title "Pop".

2, Freshman Day, following its usual patriotic trend at Masten Park,
was appropriately begun with a flag procession. The honored flag bearers
were Richard Kraemer, Norman Bowes and Walter Stalke. After the
salute to the flag and the singing of the "Star Spangled Banner", Evelyn
Ruderisch related "The History of Flag Day at Masten Park". The audi-
ence enjoyed very much the oration of Charles Evans Hughes-"What the
Flag Means"-given by Robert Morran. Following this, Virginia Westphal
recited "The Flower of Liberty" by Oliver Wendell Holmes. All joined
heartily in the singing of patriotic songs. The film "The Declaration of
Independence" was greeted with enthusiasm. As this picture portrayed
something of the animosity between America and England, and of the wild
joy at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, it proved to be a
fitting conclusion for our program of patriotism.
11. As we entered the assembly on Armistice Day our eyes centered
upon the service flag over the platform. Mr. Penniman gave a graphic
account of the days preceding the signing of the Armistice. Doctor Fos-
dick spoke on the outcome of Armistice Day and lauded the League of
Nations. To conclude the program the students sang some of the songs
popular during the War.
I Fern Ryder.
16. On this day an assembly took place which was interesting, not
only from an athletic, but also from a scholastic point of view. Sport
enthusiasts were delighted when the afternoon boys of the cross country
team were awarded their squad letters. Mr. Brown presented them to
Charles Bonsall, David Savotsky and Ralph Wuchter, all of Whom were
heartily cheered by the student body. A
The second part of the program was conducted under the supervision
of the History Department. It consisted of the portrayal of Greek and
Roman life, which was presented in a delightful manner. Barbara Oehler
and Reuben Teibel, in Greek costumes, gave vivid talks about the contribu-
tions to civilization from Greece. This was followed by slides which were
explained by Mr. Penniman. Next came a description of ancient Rome
who, in her less developed state, stripped Greece to adorn herself until she
gained a distinct civilization of her own. In Roman garb, Virginia Thornton
and Ward Schwenk spoke about Rome's gifts to the world. Subsequently
pictures again aided the imagination in its ideas of Roman glory.
This entertaining way of imparting information was heartily enjoyed
and appreciated-not only by History students, but by all.
23. For some years it has been customary for the Sophomores to
present a Christmas play. This year was no exception. As the number of
Sophomores attending the afternoon school is about equivalent to those
attending the morning, the play "The Christmas Child Comes In" was pro-
duced in both groups. The casts were selected from pupils attending the
respective sessions. The Sophomores taking part in the afternoon mani-
fested unusual talent under their admirable coach, Miss Wendling. Austin
Blanch acted as chairman of the day. Important parts were taken by the
following Sophomores: Louise Weigel, Ruth Irving, Geraldine Patchin,
Eleanor Dobler, Marie Holme, Helen Schroeder, Esther Hartnung,
Ruth McCready, Bessie Apsey, Charlotte Meisky, Harry Crowe,
Robert Lilga, John Henderson, Edward Schreiber, Ross Cummings, Leroy
Pitkin, Robert Maynard and John Murray. The Sophomores feel deeply
indebted to the Girls' Glee Club, who rendered several splendid Christmas
carols under the direction of Miss E. Link. The entire audience-students
and faculty-enjoyed the program.

3. February ushered in the second term amid mingled feelings on the
part of the students. For those pupils upon whom success had smiled
in their examinations the future was rosy with promise, but to those who
had tasted defeat the outlook for the term was not half so bright. Both
classes, however, were eager to accept diversion in the form of four most
At the first one We had the pleasure of listening to an illustrated talk
by Miss Margaret Rochester of the Buffalo S. P. C. A. A selection from
the "Odyssey" was recited by Betty Elly. The musical offerings were: A
piano solo "Gondoliero" by Theodoria Barczakg a cornet solo by Gerard
Weingarten entitled "Maritania" 3 and a violin solo "Rodino" by Leo
Agranove. The accompanist was Gladys Rossdentsher.
11. On February eleventh and nineteenth, respectively, we enjoyed
two assemblies 'fittingly patriotic. The first in honor of Lincoln's birthday,
offered a most novel program. A film was presented, showing Buffalo as
it was in Lincoln's time. Doctor Fosdick, who was a boy at that time, was
able to tell us much about Buffalo. He recalled many humorous incidents
and his talk was sincerely appreciated by the boys and girls.
19. This was the day we had an assembly in honor of "The Father of
our Country". On this occasion a film entitled "Alexander Hamilton" was
shown, portraying difficulties with which Washington and his talented
Secretary of the Treasury had to cope in the early years of our government.
24. In recognition of Honor Day, we witnessed impressive ceremonies.
All pupils on the afternoon honor roll marched into the hall and took places
reserved in the middle section. Mr. Coffran was our esteemed chairman
and read the list of afternoon honor students which was headed by Fern
Ryder with an average of 97.2. As speakers we had two former Mastenites
-Reverend Leupold and Mr. Paul Cohen. In their addresses both men
dealt with knowledge and its power, a topic most suitable to the occasion
and one which made a decided impression on the students. Two very
delightful piano solos were rendered by Margaret Guener and John
Barczak. Doctor Fosdick lessened the solemnity of the occasion by giving
one of his inimitable talks. This meeting came to fitting close, when the
honor students arose and marched out before the rest of the pupils. The
assemblies of this month launched us into the work of the second term
with high spirits and the air of conquerors.
3. On this day of March the Masten Park students of the Afternoon
Session displayed their interest in Good English by producing, under the
direction of Miss Wendling, the play "I'll Try" by C. Murphy. According
to the story each part of speech, depicted by a freshman or sophomore,
explained to Carolina Augusta, the little girl who did not understand
grammar, his particular function and illustrated the same. So Well was
the duty of each portrayed that not only Caroline understood troublesome
grammar, but also the attentive audience. Noun was played by Thelma
Corcoran, Pronoun by Marjorie Freezg Adjective by Lucille LeCocqg
Article by Betty Hohlg Adverb, Milton Polisnerg Verb, Oliver Mitchell,
Preposition, Frank Benshadleg Conjunction, George Dunn and Interjection,
10. This assembly was a musical one. Eight selections were rendered
in an admirable way by the afternoon students. To the latter John Bar-
czak was a Well known figure and his piano solo-"Minuet in G"-by Pader-
eweski, was received with much applause. Another excellent pianist was
Ruth Pliss. Leo Agranove, violinist, who has been heard over the radio
many times, was called back time and time again. He showed unusual
skill in interpreting "Song of India" by Kerschoff-Kreisler. Gerard Wein-
gartner's cornet solo was another noteworthy contribution. This assembly
exhibited an unusual talent and appreciation of music among the afternoon
12. One of the outstanding assemblies of the year, and in fact in the
history of the school, was the one held in honor of Doctor Fosdick's seven-
ty-fifth birthday. A song, written by a teacher of the afternoon session
and expressing appreciation of our beloved principal, was sung by the
student body. A gift of an Aspidisca plant indicated our everlasting love.
At the end of the assembly Mr. Raymond Fosdick, the well known son of
Doctor Fosdick, addressed the audience. While he was speaking, the corri-
dors echoed with laughter caused by his boyhood reminiscences. Although
we all joined in the laughter and were smiling as we came out of the
auditorium, I am sure that every student and teacher felt the dignity of the
occasion and were sad at the thought of parting soon with a friend.

19. The Junior Debating Society of Masten Park High School, found-
ed three years ago for the development of public speaking and practice of
parliamentary law, enjoyed a very prosperous and beneficial season under
the able guidance of Miss McCarthy. Those acting as officers were: Presi-
dent, John Henderson, Vice President, Harry Crowe, Secretary, Morris
Yokelson, and Treasurer, LeRoy Pitkin. Although most of the weekly
meetings were devoted to the customary informal debate, some Friday
gatherings were given over to formal debate and social functions. These
were attended by Mr. Roberts and other faculty members interested in the
extra curricula activities. The final event of the year was the debate
presented in the auditorium on the timely subject, "Resolved, that there
should be a .Secretary of Education in our Federal Government". After
a closely contested struggle, the affirmative team, composed of Morris
Yokelson, captain, Rueben Teibel, Lyall Bush and William Wollens, alter-
nate, was victorious by a vote of two to one over the negative team com-
posed of Harry Crowe, captain 3 Edward Schreiber, LeRoy Pitkin and
Austin Blanch, alternate. The president of the society acted as chairman
of the occasion.
The judges at the formal debate were Messrs. Thuman, Munsey and
Ratcliff-former members of the Debating Society-and they congratulat-
ed the speakers and wished the society success in the future.
31. During the month of March the Alpha Iota Chi Sorority offered
prizes to the freshman and sophomore girls, respectively, who would be
successful in a declamation contest. Active interest in public speaking was
shown by the number of girls who appeared in the preliminary hearings.
After the process of elimination the four successful freshmen were: Ruth
Dodge, Virginia Westphal, Lucille LeCocq and Alice Wuchter. In the
sophomore group were: Eleanor Dobler, Louise Weigel, Ruth Irving and
Thelma Corcoran. When the contest was held Miss Dorothy Tefft, as
president of the sorority, acted as chairman and the judges were the
Misses Fox, Alport and Starr, of the morning session. The selections
chosen by all students were of unusual interest and the judges felt that
the four dollars finally awarded to each of the successful candidates-
Virginia Westphal whose selection was "Where Ignorance is Bliss" and
Ruth Irving who interpreted "The Citizen" by James Dwyer-were justly
deserved' Ruth A. Brems
17. After enjoying a happy Easter vacation we settled down to some
real work, which was relieved by several long assemblies. Miss Fox, head
of our English department, officiated at the first assembly in April when
humane essays were read and prizes awarded. Our friends, Miss Roches-
ter and Mrs. Seymour, attended, and helped to present the books and
badges. Lillian Freed, sophomore, and Paul Kane, freshman, were the
winners in this contest. With the special privilege of choosing their own
books, Miss Freed asked for "Little Women" and Paul chose a book about
birds, through the pages of which he intends to become more closely
acquainted with the feathered world. Many honorable mention badges
were also given to essay writers.
28. The homemaking department presented to us on this day an
elaborate pageant of fashions extending over a period of many hundreds
of years. Egyptian, Grecian, Roman, Gaulic, Medieval and Puritan cus-
toms of dressing were seen in a variety of colors. The modern girl during
the Charleston craze was probably the leading attraction. The students,
together with the many visitors, agreed that this was an excellent enter-
tainment. The superintendent of Buffalo schools, Dr. Hartwell, was
present and gave a short, enjoyable talk on hoop skirts. Spirited cheers
ended the program.
30. It is a custom of Masten Park to try to increase its scholarship
standings. By awarding pennants to the study-rooms that have the largest
number of pupils on the honor roll each month, competitive spirit was
aroused and more interest was taken in studies. To be on the honor roll
it is necessary to receive "C" or above in each subject. The room winning
the banner for the majority of months in the year procures it for perma-
nent possession. Last year the winning rooms were 123, 112, 309 and 206.
According to April's record different rooms will be the recipients this year,
as 104, 204 and 202 have received the pennant each month and 106 is
leading 206. Our own "Pop" presented the awards each time, adding to
the zest of the contest.
With April comes baseball. The inter-study room baseball is at its
height. Room 104 won the banner last year, we have yet to see the best
team of the 1926 season. The cup for basketball passed to study-room
112 this year, after having been in the possesion of 104 for two years. A
third winning means permanent possession. Let us hope that Masten Park
will keep up its record and succeed in all its undertakings.

HE Honor Award Committee of Masten Park has again presented
its tokens of merit to the intellectual leaders of the school.
Mr. Coffran presided and read the names of the other shining
QI .s,' Liflfll lights besides handing out the various pins and medals.
Ten bronze pins were given on Class Day, 1925, to those
students who had maintained an average of 95 or over for one year,
while at the same time four silver pins and one gold pin were awarded
to the persons who had remained on the honor roll for two and three
years respectively, with an average above 95 per cent. Gold medals
were bestowed on Carol Henrich and Cornelia Metz for holding' their posi-
tions of honor for four years. Ten members of the graduating class
received gold pins for perfect attendance and non-tardiness throughout
the course. William H. Drews obtained the Dartmouth Award for all-
around excellence in both athletics and scholarship.
The first awards of the Fosdick Scholarship were granted to Rosalie
Cortese and Leslie Thelleman, both of whom are now attending the Uni-
versity of Buffalo. May the good work continue!
Rebecca Remson and Anthony Priore won French Essay Medals offered
by Les Amis de la France, a French society of Buffalo. All the high schools
and the private schools of Buffalo compete. This honor has come to Mas-
ten Park for three successive years. A remarkable tribute to our French
department, n'est-ce pas? Winners in the National Poster contest are
mentioned in the art section. -
Decoration Day, 1925, was fittingly observed by a special assembly
in honor of the Masten students who died for their country in the World
War. The graves of the ones buried in or near Buffalo were decorated
with the assistance of students and flowers were sent to the families of
those who lie buried "somewhere in France".
Mid-term Honor Day occurred February 24, 1926. The honor students
occupied the center section as usual. Mr. Coffran read the names of those
who led for the first term. Messrs. George Grobie and Roswell Rosengren
addressed the school, speaking on the value of education. Nita Goldberg,
with an average of 98 per cent, received the Winfield Wheadrick medal
from George Doyle on behalf of the Sigma Gamma Phi fraternity.

The Freshman girls, 200 in all,
added color to the pageant as they
marched into the assembly in their newly constructed spring gingham
The pageant will remain a thing of memory for the senior girls have
dressed six dolls in period costumes, Roman, Grecian, Empire, 13th, 18th
and 19th centuries being represented, these they have presented to Masten
Park as a permanent exhibit.
Service is one of the keynotes in the homemaker's creedg several of
the girls have already demonstrated this spirit by helping in the welfare
work at Westminster House and Neighborhood House, No. 2. At West-
minster House, Ruth Eberhart, Dorothy Hickman and Ruth Ehrig taught
classes in tablesettingg Sally Otto and Ruth Eberhart taught bedmaking
and Wilhelmina Merkle taught the Little Mother's class how to care for
their younger brothers and sisters.
At Neighborhood House, Helen Ehle and Mildred Slate have cooking
classes and Bertha Morrison and Genevieve Watson are busy teaching sew-

When the fairies dance on a winter's night,
In the leaping flames on the hearth-
I always watch them in delight
Till the spell is broken, and they depart.
Each sprite is wrapped in cloth of ilame,
Woven of colors of every name,
Their slippers are fashioned of molten gold,
Their crowns of rubies such as never were
Their rosy garments flash and fly
As they turn and twirl and then dance by 5
Now this one whirls on pointed toe,
Now this one sinks in a graceful bow.
And then they all join hands in glee
And dance around right merrily:
The clock strikes twelve, the flames leap
Then they sink, and shrink, and dwindle,
Violins- Louis Rolrinowitz
Our aspirations to reach junior symphony proportions are on the way
to realization. We have a representation of each string instrument and
our bass section is complete. This year the school acquired, as permanent
property, several clarinets and a fine set of drums.
Together with a chorus of 250, our orchestra presented an interesting
May Festival program, with the cantata "Rip Van Winkle" and a suite
"The Ballett of Flowers", as central features.
Throughout the year the orchestras have contributed generously to
assemblies and evening programs. During the absence of Mr. Fuhrmann,
Mr. Fred Stopper of the Buffalo Symphony was in charge of the orchestras.
The personnel of the advanced orchestra is as follows:
The afternoon orchestra is an important adjunct to the music depart-
ment. Besides adding material enjoyment to afternoon special assemblies,
the students receive fine training and are ready in September to become
members of the morning orchestra.
Three years ago a new course was organized at Masten Park. A
Regents Art diploma is now given by the State of New York for success-
fully completing the course of study which consists of thirty six credits
in drawing subjects and 36 credits in certain academic subjects. This June
four of the Class of 1926 are graduating in the Art course. The Art
department is proud of their achievements.
Examples of the work done in the commercial design class are shown
on the opposite page. These posters were the prize winners in a compe-
tition conducted by the Homemaking department. The cover design of
this Chronicle was made by Gertrude I. Munsert '26, a member of the
second year commercial design class. Other drawings throughout this
Chronicle were done by students in the drawing classes. This training in
representation and observation obtained in drawing is often of great value
in later life.
Early this year we had trials for members to represent Masten against
Hutchinson and Lafayette. Those chosen were: Paul Seippel, John Thu-
man, Herbert Munsey, Joseph Nowak, Allen Johnson, Lewis Gishler, and
Lawrence Leising. The question discussed was compulsory insurance for
all automobile owners. We lost both of these debates but we took defeat
as all Mastenites should.
The second term soon came and again we held trials for members to
represent us against Technical and Bennett. Those chosen were: John
Thuman, Clifford Keene, Herbert Munsey, Henrietta Hoffman, Eleanor
Nagel, Byard Achey, and Lawrence Leising. Again fortune smiled on the
friendly enemy. This time we discussed the power of Congress to annul
all but unanimous decisions of the Supreme Court as to the Constitution-
ality of federal laws.
On April 14th the affirmative and negative teams discussed the
Supreme Court question before the school. On the evening of May 24th we
matched wits with the Canisius High School.

HILL TOPICS' STAFF
Seemingly the month of November, 1925, differed in no way from the
usual trend of school affairs, but when the monthly paper HILL TOPICS
was placed in the hands of Masten students, one and all were immediately
aware of the weight and influence that such a publication would have in
the life of the school.
Seven similar publications of the HILL TOPICS have been sufficient
to verify two distinct facts. In the first place, the HILL TOPICS, boasting
a circulation of 1700, and backed by an efficient business staff, has scored
a decided financial success. Then, above all, the marked enthusiasm with
which Mastenites welcomed the newcomer has been adequate to con-
vince those bent upon emerging from the first year with flying colors, that
the HILL TOPICS has an essential and prominent post to guard at the
Another victory has been scored, and though a cup will not grace the
trophy case as a result, on the other hand the only reward will be the
inward satisfaction of knowing that a monthly newspaper has been estab-
lished on a firm foundation.
The members of the staff for the year 1925-26 are:
Faculty Advisors: Miss Esther Mills, Miss Margaret Mills.
Faculty Treasurer: Miss Woodward.

The Alumni Association
The past year for the Masten Park Alumni Association has been one
of unusual achievement. At no time since its conception has there been
so many indications of the wide spread interests and steady growth of
the Association. A turning point has been reached beyond which there is
every sign and hope for a permanent and very useful organization of
Masten Park graduates.
With the opening of school in the fall of last year the Alumni formed
under the leadership of President Otto Buerger, an early objective in
raising six hundred dollars to reach the 34,000 mark set for the Scholarship
A theatre party at Shea's Vaudeville Theatre was arranged by a com-
mittee under Ralph Boniface. There was a large and enthusiastic turnout
of both undergraduates and graduates which exceeded even the party of
A big dance followed almost immediately during the Christmas Holi-
days. The interest showed in this new feature on the program of the
Association and the hearty cooperation of Alumni and undergraduates
alike will probably establish this event as an annual event.
It was with sincere regret that the Alumni heard of Dr. Fosdick's
intention to retire from the principalship of Masten Park. The announce-
ment, however, gave additional zest to the activities of the Association
in completing the initial goal of the Scholarship Fund. By the latter part
of February the 34,000 mark was reached and passed.
The annual birthday for Dr. Fosdick, this year more than ever before
was a iine testimonial of the loyalty and the affection which Masten Park
men and women have always had for him. The arrangements for the
banquet were again in the capable hands of Henrietta Straub and proved
well-nigh faultless in execution.
Each achievement of the year has given an added impetus to the
Alumni Association. Now an energetic and extensive campaign for Life
Membership is being carried on, the successful completion of which will
go far toward establishing the Association on a sound financial basis, thus
guaranteeing its permanency. At the same time a new goal has been set
for the Scholarship Fund-310,000 The earnings of this sum will permit
eight scholarships of one hundred dollars each at one time. The hearty
support of every Alumnus is needed to realize this new ambition.
ALMA MATER '
On a hillside westward facing
Masten Park, our city's crown,
Hear thy sons and daughters raising
Songs of praise to thy renown.
Then it's Masten Park forever
And Nothing our love shall sever
From our own Alma Mater,
And the Yellow and the Blue.
Thus We hail thee, kindly mother,
And through life shall memory hark
Back to thee, as to no other,
Alma Mater, Masten Park!
When we may not tarry longer
And thy ways are ours no more,
Still our love shall grow but stronger,
Purer far than e'er before.

.Another championship football team was produced by Coach Frank
Morrissey in 1925. The team won six games and lost two.
Coach Morrissey had only five letter men on hand when he issued the
call for candidates, yet in spite of this handicap he developed a champion-
ship team. -
A year of football leade1'ship, fine sportsmanship and clean play accounts
for the prestige Masten enjoyed this season. Masten could always be
depended upon to demonstrate the highest type of sportsmanship either in
"Victory or Defeat."
The first game with Nichols, Masten won 12-0.
The second game of the season was played with Canisius College
Freshmen and Masten won by the narrow margin of 7-6.
The next game was played out in the wide open spaces of the West
called Jackson, Michigan. The game was scheduled to be played on October
17th, Saturday. The team left on Thursday, October 15th, at 6 P. M. We
arrived in Detroit the following morning, Friday. We toured about Detroit
in the morning and then went to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where We remained
until the following morning, Saturday. We then departed for Jackson
arriving there at 10 :30 A. M. In the afternoon the game was played before
a crowd of 6,000. It was a hotly contested game throughout, Masten
falling on the short end of a 12-6 score.
The following game was one with Saint Joseph's Collegiate Institute,
and resulted in another victory for Masten 26-0.
On Saturday, October 31, the first Harvard Cup game was played
against South Park, which Masten captured by the score of 13-0. Long
runs by Hannel and Heveron featured the contest.
On the Saturday following the South Park game, Masten met Hutch-
inson defeating the brown and blue 7-0.
A week later we met Lafayette, which game we lost 2-0. This game
will go down in the history of football in the Harvard Cup series. Masten
displayed a wonderful brand of football, despite the handicap in the first
half. After Lafayette had blocked a kick near Masten's goal line, the
oiiicial declared a touchback, no score, and brought the ball to Masten's
twenty-yard line. At the beginning of the second half the official reversed
his decision, called the play a safety and gave Lafayette two points. Of
course he could not then give Masten the ten more yards. Soon after the
game, Coach Morrissey, backed by Dr. Fosdick and Mr. Heck, protested
both the decision and the oHicial's right to change a decision after a period
of play had elapsed. The protest committee by a majority, not a unani-
mous vote gave Lafayette the game.
However, Dr. Fosdick was assured that
at no future cup game would an official
be allowed to change his decision after
the ball had been put in play, so that
some good came from the protest.
At no time in the discussion did
Masten blame her friendly enemy, La-
fayette, the protest being made against
the wisdom of the officials only. These
two points were the only points scored
against Masten either in the 1924 or the
1925 cup games.
In the final game of the season Mas-
ten defeated Technical, 26-0, a fitting fin-
ish for the season, 1925.
The season ended with Masten and
South Park tied for the Harvard Cup.
To complicate matters further, each of
these schools had earned three legs on
the cup. After some discussion the com-
mittee decided to award the original cup to Masten Park, she having won
first place twice and tied once and to award a duplicate to South Park,
she having won first place once and tied twice.
The cup presentation occurred at Hutchinson High School, Friday
afternoon, March 6. Both teams marched to the platform and were decorat-
ed with the Harvard colors, after which a movie showing the last Yale-
Harvard game was enjoyed by the audience.
Members of the team of 1925 wish to express their appreciation to
Dr. Fosdick, members of the Faculty and students for their support in the
past Season' Charles H. Guenther, Manager

After many weeks of strenuous training, the team competed against
the other high schools in the annual Columbia Cross Country run in which
Masten finished third. The first seven men to finish for Masten were:
Captain H. Weller, O. Kreuger, N. Kayser, E. Holdgate, H. Murphy, O.
Matheis and F. Kolb. Weller finished second in the race.
Not discouraged with this showing they continued training, later
journeying to Alfred to defend their title of champions of the previous
year. In this race all Western New York and Northern Pennsylvania
competed. Here the boys won a great victory by winning the cup for
Masten and carrying off all individual school awards and medals. It was
due to the splendid team work of the boys that they were enabled to
again win this championship for the season 1925. Captain Weller finished
first and received a gold medal, N. Kayser second winning the silver medal
and O. Kreuger third winning the bronze medal. In addition to these three
medals each of these men and E. Holdgate, who finished ninth and H.
Murphy who finished fourteenth received a gold medal for being on the

The basketball team has completed a successful season. Although
they did not finish on top of the League, they finished in second place.
Incidentally many old scores were settled. First there was Hutchinson
who has in recent years been defeating Masten by 1 and 2 point scores.
In the first game between Hutch. and Masten this year, Hutch. won 18-16,
but the second game Masten won 28-23.
Second there was Tech. who managed to do Masten out of a game last
year, but that one victory for them cost them two defeats. The Lafayette
jinx that has not been broken in three years still remains.
The team guided by the steady hand of Capt. "Sparky" Alway was at
all times at its best form.
Charles "Peep" Hoover developed a wicked eye for the basket, making
him second highest point scores in the Yale Cup Series, Stan Lipinski of
Tech. being first. Hoover also made All-High at forward berth.
Harry Murphy has all the experts on basketball pricking up their ears.
His ability as back guardsman to hold his own man down and still be the
center of offensive passwork gave him All-High guard on the Second team.
Both Kreuger and Kumpf figured big in floor work.

Our Hockey team has again enjoyed a very prontable season. The
boys finished the series with ten wins and no losses, which establishes a
record for high school competition. We have won the Michigan cup for
the second consecutive year, thereby giving Masten Park nine points
toward the Williams Trophy.
Masten Park puck chasers opened the season with a bang, trimming
our friend, the enemy, Lafayette, by a score of 4-1. The boys closed with
a 1-0 victory over Bennett, the new comer into sporting ranks.
Special mention goes to Capt. Walsh, MacDonald, Kolb, and O'Connell
who were chosen for the All-High team of which McDonald was named
Captain. MacDonald led the series in scoring, registering 23 times in 10
games. Capt. Walsh was next with a grand total of 15 goals.
The team wishes to express its appreciation to the students for the
loyal support which they gave during the past season.

"In Victory or Defeat Masten Park." This motto ably expresses the
spirit of our 1926 Swimming team. Although handicapped by lack of
veterans, the team finished in fourth place adding 3 points towards the
The team, although not sco1'ing many points, deserves much credit.
The old Masten fight was there which was proved by the fact that eight
of the boys earned their letters in competition.
Special credit should be given to Captain Gordon Spencer and Franklin
Dieme1'. Spencer made all-high team as utility man. Diemer made the
second team. In addition Diemer received 3rd place for fancy diving in
the State Championship meet held in Buffalo this year.
Gordon Spencer has been re-elected captain for the 1927 team and with
five letter men and coach Joe Sweeney back they should make a strong
bid for the Syracuse Cup.
The best of luck to that 1927 team and may they always remember "In
Victory or Defeat Masten Park."

Our baseball team has made a most auspicious start in its attempt to
defend the Cornell Cup championship, won in 1925. Four veterans from
last year's victorious team, Captain Burke, Burr, Pytlak and Johnston,
have answered the call for candidates this spring and With these men as
a nucleus, a formidable team has been organized.
Although the team has engaged in only four games to date, all have
been Won in such a convincing manner that We feel justified in expecting
unbounded success throughout the season.
We are now deadlocked with Hutchinson for the lead in the cup series
and are depending upon the guidance of Coach Heck and the leadership of
Captain Burke to keep the Cornell Cup in our trophy case.

Our first social affair of the year was a party which was held at
the Lafayette Community House on Thanksgiving night. It was a great
success and much of this is due to the co-operation of Miss Mills and Miss
Woodward. Following this came a skating party, held on February 9th
at the Main Sz Burton Skating Rink. Most everybody was present. This
was also a success. A luncheon was held at Miss Mills' home during the
Easter Vacation, for the girls of the sorority. It was a very lovely affair
and enjoyed by all.
The sorority also helped to make happier three shildren from the
Crippled Children's Guild, by fuliilling their wishes as expressed in their
letters to Santa Claus.

Alpha Tau Gamma has closed one of the most successful years in the
history of the fraternity. We were very discouraged at the outset of the
school year because we had but seven members return out of last year's
registration of twenty-five. However, the boys very quickly took up the
standards established by former members and the fraternity was soon on
the road to success.
On our Championship Football team we were able to claim "Bus"
Woltz, "Bob" Schroeder, "Wop" Walpole and "Hank" Hannel while in
hockey Woltz and Schroeder carried our banner. Dray captained our tennis
team as did Spencer our swimming team. In track Hamilton and Spencer
were representatives. Dray is also a baseball man.
In the fall we gave a dance in honor of this year's football team and
the guests of honor were the football letter men. We also donated our sil-
ver loving cup on Junior Day to the Junior boy who was voted upon to
possess and express in his school life the three qualities upon which this
award is based, Character, Leadership and Achievement.
Our meetings have been highly enjoyable both as a standard of frater-
nity work and appetites. We would like to express our sincerest thanks
to our faculty advisor, C. Harold Braun, for his untiring efforts in helping
us complete so successful a year.
We have taken the following boys into the fraternity during the past
year and we sincerely hope those who return next year will enjoy the
success that has been ours this year: Robert Hannel, Gordon Walpole,
Merle Kennedy, Charles Williams, Albert Toy, Fred Fox, John J. Coughlin
and Jimmy Hamilton. Good luck boys for the year 1926-1927.

We wish to thank the chaperons and those who supported our Arm-

these we were able to contribute fifty dollars to the Pauline Ellis Memorial
Fund and one hundred dollars to the Fosdick Scholarship Fund. We also
held a roller skating party in April. -
At Christmas time we did our bit in bringing a little added happiness
and holiday joy to a needy family.
The Sorority has been delightfully entertained at the homes of its
members during the past year. We also had a Christmas party held at
the home of Alice-Katz and a theatre party at the Majestic Theatre.

With the closing of school we bring to an end a year that has been

The closing of this school term ends one of the most successful years
in the history of the Edebta Literary Society. The Edebta Declamation
Contest helped the art of public speaking and proved that we have some
very fine speakers right in our own school if given the chance to show
their wares. As has been the custom of former years we have presented
a trophy to the teams of the various studyrooms who finished on top in
the Inter-Studyroom Basketball League.
The society this year decided not to run any dances on account of the
epidemic of "dance crazy" but still holds good to the Annual Moonlight
Boat Dance which will be held June eighteenth, the last day of school.
The members have enjoyed the regular meetings at the homes and the
programs presented by the literary committee.
The following members have been initiated into the secrets of the
society the past year: Arthur Carver, Donald Cook, Robert Henry, Leroy
Ludwig, Carson McLaughlin and Russell Simpson.
The following members have had the honor to represent Masten on
the athletic field:
Football: Captain Bryans tall-high captainj, Heveron fNews all-high

The Gamma Mu Kappa Sorority has had a most prosperous and
enjoyable year. We have had unusually enjoyable meetings at the homes
of our members including a Hallowe'en Party, a Christmas Party, and a
Spring Party given by Miss Thomas in honor of our graduates. An
Easter Dinner and Theatre party was enjoyed by both Passives and
Actives. A mother and Daughter Banquet in May and our annual Week-
End House Party in June will conclude our social program for the year.
At Christmas time the girls furnished two very needy families with
food and clothing. Shortly after Easter we contributed to the Red Cross
the dresses which we made at our meetings throughout the year.
On March 31, the sorority brought back several talented former
Mastenites who took part in our Spring Program which we presented in
the school auditorium.
We take this opportunity to thank those who supported our Skating
Party in December.
We extend our appreciation to our Faculty Advisor, Miss Thomas,
who has successfully assisted us in our activities.

ority, Emma Dahlstrom, Edith Gilbert, Ester Hoiman, Patricia ,Huntz,

The Masten Girl Reserves have completed another successful year.
We have tried to stress World Fellowship this year especially by visiting
as many nations as possible on our Round-the-World Cruise.
As a "grand finale" to our activities of this year, we are planning
as usual, our conference at Silver Lake.
If you should happen to go down to the Erie Station about nine
o'clock in the morning of June twenty-fifth, you would see scores of girls
laden with all kinds of luggage, waiting for their train. And if you should
follow them to the old inn at Silver Lake you would see them perhaps in
garb for a ceremonial or even decked out in the bright colors and flying rib-
bons of gypsies. And no doubt you would hear laughing voices, a scrap
of a song or a chord or two struck on some uke. You would be merry, too,
if you were one of them. Why aren't you? Don't miss all this fun and
frolicing! "Come with us and join the Girl Reserves."

The end of this year marks the sixteenth milestone of the Sigma
Gamma Phi Fraternity. The first part of this year held nothing out of
the ordinary for the "frat", but with the beginning of the second term
activities began. Our first social adventure was the annual dance which
was held at the Statler in February, and proved to be a big success.
Spurred on by this affair, we at once made preparations for our annual
"Moonlight" which will be held on the fourth of June.
At the end of the first term, the fraternity gave to Winfield Wheadrick
Scholastic Supremacy Award, to the highest pupil on the Honor Roll.
Another medal wiH be presented to the pupil who heads the Honor Roll at
the end of June.
Those who have successfully survived the perils of initiation and are
now our brothers are: Walter Allert, Robert Carpenter, Harry DeBoth,
Harold Setzkorn, Frederick Weinheimer and George Ziebarth.
The congratulations of the fraternity are due Donald Leighbody, recent-
ly elected Treasurer of the Senior Class, and William Condon, awarded his
letter for hockey.

The Wonder Why Club is primarily a science organization. The
members of which satisfy their curiosity concerning themselves and their
environment by "Wondering Why" and then doing the necessary experi-
menting or reading on the chosen subject to solve their problem. We
hope to become acquainted with the why and Wherefore of many of the
things which We observe daily but do not understand.
The Grosvenor Library has kindly co-operated with our aim by
reserving a room for our meeting on alternate Monday eveningsg and
cheerfully assisted in selecting just the right books for our work. Busi-
ness meetings are held in Room 327 on alternate Wednesday noons.
At each meeting members report on the progress which they have
made. Thus sharing with all, their new information, which of course,
greatly increases the interest in the club.
The last Saturday of each month is reserved for social gatherings,
theatre parties, or hikes.
The requirements for membership are but two-to "Wonder Why"
concerning something and to be Willing to investigate until the wonder-
ment is solved.
We wish to thank at this time Mrs. M. F. Kolbe for the help and
wise counsel she has given us.

We Give and Bequeath
We, the class of 1926, being about to take the outside of the building
known as Masten Park High School will, and bequeath to the noble class of
1927, the following:
1. The inside of the building. See that you stay there until your
diploma gives you an honorable discharge.
2. The middle seats in the auditorium with their convenient view of
both stage and clock. Occupy them for one year only.
3. The trophy case with its numerous cups. See to it that many
new cups find a resting place there. You'll have to go some to be as
successful in gaining these cups as we have been, but we leave you the
task. Go to it!
4. The milk line. Let the many underweight and otherwise mem-
bers of your class use this privilege with discretion and not annoy the
senior study-room teachers by a noisy and undignified entrance into the
study-room after you have eaten your fill of milk and graham crackers.
5. The position of cheerleader, which was so nobly held down by
the Honorable Mr. Schusterbauer during our reign as seniors. Find a
man with a voice, a line, and acrobatic ability equal to his, and give him
6. The front corridor, where the members of your class shall
gather before and after school to talk over their aiairs and the affairs
of the universe. Keep the conversation there, dignified, quiet, and
scholarly as we have done.
7. The sometimes-beloved faculty. We have instructed them to
treat you as kindly and considerately as they have treated us. They
will keep your marks well above the 8073 line that you may rely upon
the 8096 ruling and rest in the assurance of graduation.
8. The tardy lists. Emulate our most noble example and keep them
absolutely free from the names of Seniors.
9. The window sills. Rest no Senior elbows upon them. Remember
that a Senior never waits until after he has entered the building to
prepare his lessons. 1926 never did that!
10. Our places on the honor roll. They are at the top you'll notice.
Finally we leave you Mr. Hersey as your principal. Back him to the
limit. Make your visits to him voluntary ones only.
We, the class of '26, have been very generous in our gifts to you but
there is one thing which we cannot leave you. That thing is the honor
of having as a member of your class Dr. Fosdick, our dearly beloved,
"Pop." We regard it the highest honor to have him as a. member of our own
class, too great an honor to bestow on any other class so are taking him
with us. We leave to you, however, the spirit of Masten Park which he
inspired. Cherish it as your most honored possession.

New Bills of Interest to Players
Pathetic scene in Norma Schroeder's
.new play gives rise to a bill of interest
to all actors.
After seeing the act in which the
enchantress Ruth Glynn, brutally stabs
Charles Doll, the hero, in the wrist, Mrs.
Erma Kreinheder, Wife of the Chief Jus-
tice of the United States, broke down
and wept with pity for the cruel act
saying that she couldn't stand it.
Senator Joseph Nowak and Representa-
tive Jacob Benderson, who accompanied
the Chief Justice and his Wife took the
matter to heart and introduced a bill
which provided for shorter and more
elastic daggers. Senator Miriam Cris-
tall, author of the bill that married
women should retain their maiden names,
and Lester Lopez, Editor of the Congres-
sional Record argued against the bill on
the grounds that actors are "hard
boiled" anyway and that a few rubber
slivers would make very little difference
to them. However, it is expected that
President Charles Guenther will sign the
bill for the good of those concerned.
At the request of John Tousley, of
the McPherson Kr Moran Stock Co.,
Charles Ellis, famous senator and Per-
incton graduate introduced a bill to the
effect that all lip stick used on the stage
should be of a standard fiavor. It is
charged that Mr. Tousley suffered a
severe attack of indigestion due to the
many combinations. Immediate action
is expected, -

A Successful Operation
A physician, commenting on the present-day
tendency of his confreres to "operate" on
patients for various sorts of ailments that to
the lay mind would hardly seem to require
surgical treatment, told this story:
A man visited a psychiatric clinic and com-
plained of acute nervousness. The least little
thing annoyed him, he said, and he was con-
stantly biting his iinger nails. He begged the
learned specialists to do something to relieve
him of such distressing condition. They exam-
ined him from head to foot, inside and out,
tested him with strange looking instruments
and asked him innumerable questions. After
consulting over his case they ordered him to
a hospital for an operation. There they gave
him gas and extracted all his teeth. In a few
days he was discharged, completely cured.
At any rate, he didn't bite his nails any
