THOUGH a stai of high school pupils
are selected to publish this book, they are,
in truth, only its compilers. The Record
is Parker's own annual because all of us
have done our bit to make it what it is.
Whether one has sorted manuscript, taken
snapshots, written an article, or just sub-
scribed, the help is felt and is reflected
within these covers. May it so
as long as the Record exists. Iffiii' othese
people, to all the school, in fact, We give'
our thanks, for it is their book and it is
what they have made it.

MADAME E. COUGNARD STOESSER
JUNE 22, 1867
AUGUST 4, 1929
,g tj 1930 ,
LL J ju ,
ff 1' ers:-gw ' '
Emma Aline Westerman Cougnard was born june twenty-second, 1867, in Lyons,
France. Her father was a well known judge in Lyons. At the beginning of the Franco-
Prussian war of 1870, her father moved the family to Geneva, Switzerland, for safety.
He Went back and forth from Geneva to Lyons, all during the war. The family liked
Geneva so much that they decided to make it their home. So they settled there. Emma
Cougnard's mother died when she was still a young girl. She was brought up by her
fatherls sister, who was well known in educational and literary circles. Emma Cougnard
and her only brother had their early traini-ng in Geneva. Then she Went to school in
Nottingham, England, then she worked at Cambridge, and then she worked with a
relative, Gaston Paris, in Paris, France, and studied at the Sorbonne.
While quite young she married Count Frederick Von Stoesser, who also lived in
Geneva, Switzerland. He was a dashing young man in the diplomatic circles, and
Madame Stoesser's life as a bride was most interesting because she entertained most
unusual and distinguished people.
She became a widow in 1898 and in 1900 decided to come to this country with her
only child, a little girl who was then crippled. Her husband had lost almost all her
money. It must have taken quite a deal of courage for an attractive young widow to
come to a strange country to earn her living, a thing she had never done before. What
money she had left she had sent to her brother to invest in Galveston, Texas, which
was a booming city.
She sailed from Bremen for Galveston the day the Galveston flood occurred, and
everything she and her brother had had was lost. The ship she came on took thirty-three
days to make the crossing. Her Welcome to America was not at all a cheerful one. All
she saw, at first, was waste and desolation. The only thing she was equipped to do was
to teach and she did not know how to go about getting a position. She knew no one
in Galveston and there was nothing to do there. She remembered Mrs. Loring in
Chicago whom she had met in Geneva. She decided to take the last money she had and
try to find Mrs. Loring who she thought could tell her where she could find work. She
found Mrs. Loring, who remembered her well and was delighted to have her in her
Madame Stoesser had the gift of teaching. She loved it, and the children all loved
her. She taught at the Loring School for over ten years. When a vacancy occurred on
the staff of the Francis Parker School, Mrs. Loring, who was most u-nselfish, proposed
Madame Stoesser's name to Miss Cooke. She felt that Madame Stoesser could do more
there than at her small school. Madame Stoesser did not want to leave Mrs. Loring, but
she insisted on Madame Stoesser's bettering her position. During the years Madame
Stoesser taught she wrote several plays and stories which will be published soon.
Until her last day she loved teaching and loved her children. Nothing was too
much to do for them. The morning she went, she spoke of the children in this year's
graduating class. She wanted to go back for them. Madame Stoesser understood and
loved youth. She was always ready and anxious to take part in all school activities. Her
spirit was always to help others.
She passed on just as she wanted to, on last August fourth, 1929, on a sunny day,
in Onekema, Michigan, where she is buried. She left behind many loving friends. All
who knew her will long remember her genial and happy smile.

-----ff PARKER RECORD
COLONEL PARKEIVS SPIRIT
The Parker Spirit-what is it? A small boy in the first grade recently defined
it as "something very goodf' The occasion was a birthday wishing party. Every member
of the group had his lighted candle from which he blew his birthday wish to the child
who was seven years old that day. The wishes came eagerly and fast,-one for a
Pomeranian dog, another for an electric train, for a little baby brother, for a motor
boat,-each wishing for his friend something which doubtless he himself most desired.
Finally the turn came for a thoughtful eyed little boy to make his wish. "I hope," he
said, "that Peter will grow up big and strong and always have the Parker Spirit."
"What is that?" I asked. And he answered, "I don't know exactly what it is, but Mr.
Wahlstrom said in Morning Exercise when we were working in the Christmas Toy Shop
that we all ought to use the ParkerVSpirit, and I am sure it is something 'very
good." And, "something very good" it is, if it is truly to represent the spirit of the man
who made the Parker School possible. Francis W. Parker was a true pioneer who gave
his whole life to a struggle to make education better for children. He said, "Nothing
that is good is too good for a child, no work too great, no toil to arduous." He firmly
believed that "every school ifn the land should be made a home and a heaven for chil-
dren." He believed that no one can "give another education but that each must gain
it through his own efforts." He wanted a school to be a place where the strengths,
gifts and natural interests of every child could develop to their fullest measure. He
wanted a school to be like a fine garden, a place rich and nourishing in which a child
could live freely, a place which would stimulate him to work and play and grow.
Out of my long experience with Colonel Parker, I should interpret the Parker
Spirit as one which must continuously portray courage, strength and unselfishness.
It must be at once fine and generous yet keenly critical and intelligently discriminating
in all its larger aspects.
Parker Spirit shows itself in athletics and sports because of the school's belief
that every boy and girl needs an opportunity to play as well as to work. It puts itself
squarely and loyally behind its teams to support them whether winning or losing-so
long as the players give their best individual and cooperative effort to the game. But
Parker Spirit does not function alone in sports, it permeates and inspires every
phase of our living together. It demands at once thorough individual scholarship-the
fullest measure of knowledge and skill, and it expects from each person, big and little,
his most useful and loyal service to the best interest of the whole group. It does not
recognize as its own the selfish grabber or shirker in a community. It claims gladly
the potential artist, the lover of beauty, and attempts to help him find his own avenue
for the expression of his ideas and dreams.
The reach of the Parker Spirit extends far beyond the borders of the school
itself, and not only helps those imbued with it to meet adequately the immediate prob-
lems of the small school community, but it also equips them potentially, we hope, to
cope with the difficult problems of the more complex adult world in which they must
so soon participate. The fruitage of the Parker Spirit is something which grows and
comes to perfection only through long years of practice. It is not made up alone of
what Colonel Parker gave to it, but also of what has been .brought into the school life
by fine teachers and students during the many years of its existence. Thus it happens
that every member of the school at present is in some measure responsible for what this
spirit is just as every graduate is its exponent Its quality must be judged not by
what some of us wish it were but by what characterizes it in everyday practice If the
school of 1930 31 is to be worthy of the spirit which Colonel Parker bequeathed to it
it will not consist merely in glorifying a tradition but it will be exemplified in a type
of living wholly good happy and useful Students possessing it will without any self
1 9 - '
consciousness or self-righteousness try to live up to the school motto "Everything to
help and nothing to hinderf' They will realize more and more the significance of the
school's great word RESPONSIBILITY. They will value increasingly the principle of
cooperation under which they have lived for many years. They may perhaps also carry
with them into their homes and wider social groups Colonel Parker's guiding principle
in life, his impelling belief that the best progress for the individual and for society
comes forth under the motive of each habitually giving his best,-"Each for all and
all for each."

OUR ALUMNI ON THE STAGE
Alumni Writeups of former years have dealt with certain classes, or a general survey
of all classes, but this year we will limit ourselves to a few graduates of Parker who have
made a name for themselves on the stage.
There are thousands of actors and actresses, but there are few who ever attain
fame. Success cannot be attributed to talent alone, but it must be backed up by hard
work and years of study.
Macauley Ross, whose stage name is Ian Keith, is well known both on the stage
and screen. He began his dramatic career at Parker by admirably portraying Hamlet
in the senior play. In this play he was supported by an excellent cast including Geneva
Harrison, who has been very successful and is now with the Theatre Guild. just before
one of the performances of "Hamlet," at school, Macauley was presented with a red
carnation by Geneva. He was very proud of this gift and wore it very conspicuously.
in the beginning of the play. The red certainly brightened up the sombreness of
Macauley's costume, but evidently Mr. Merrill didn't appreciate this, for by the next
entrance the carnation had disappeared. After Hnishing school Macauley studied at the
American Academy of Dramatic Arts. In order to gain experience and a practical
knowledge of plays he went on an extensive road tour with a stock company. He acted
in Shakespearian plays and was given his big chance when he was given the part of
Orlando in "As You Like It,', substituting for an actor who was indisposed. I-Ie re-
ceived notice of this part just a few days before he was to perform, but in a very short
time he had worked up the part and achieved great success. Because of his excellent
acting, he played with John Barrymore in "Laugh, Clown, Laugh,', which was pro-
duced by David Belasco. He did very well in this part and was offered a long contract
by Belasco. Instead, Macauley entered the movim where he has become well known.
He has a very fine speaking voice and we are confident that he will be very successful
in the talking pictures.
Geneva Harrison, Macauleyls partner in the plays at Parker, who has been very
successful playing with the Theatre Guild, studied in New York under the direction of
Walter Hampton. For a few seasons she played small parts and walk-ons and then she
attracted the attention of the Guild. For quite a while she played minor roles, but just
this year she was given an important role playing with Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontaine
in "Caprice," in a part which she played very capably. Geneva-also is very much
interested in literature and writes well herself. Poetry interests her especially and she
has written some very fine examples.
With the class of 191 3 graduated Albert Carroll, who made a wonderful success
of the senior play, "The Servant in the House? Immediately after graduating Albert
joined the Ben Greet players with whom he played Shakespearian and old English
comedies At first he had very small parts but his excellent acting soon gained him
more responsible roles He stayed with this company five years and then joined the

Neighborhood Playhouse Where he was actor, dancer, writer, and impersonator. Later
he joined the "Grand Street Follies," playing the lead, and made this play a great success.
Albert is especially well known for his impersonations and pantomimes.
Doris Humphrey played the feminine lead opposite Albert in "The Servant in the
House." Doris, although she was very talented as an actress, decided to make dancing
her career. Having Hnished her studies she conducted dancing classes at Oak Park for
Eve years. Later she joined Ruth St. Denis and was leading solo dancer for several
years. Doris has now founded her own school in New York and is achieving con-
Christina Affeld while at Parker produced and acted in many plays for the Forum
and other school activities. After graduating she went to Wiscmsin University, but
after three years left college to go on the stage. Her first engagement was with Sothern
and Marlowe. For one year her part consisted of walk-ons, small dances, and under-
studying. An amusing story is told which shows Christina's determination and love
of the artistic. While she was with Sothern and Marlowe one of the leading men wore
a hat which Christina regarded as atrocious. She braced herself and determined to tell
the actor and see if he could not see her point. He was unmoved by her arguments
and the hat continued to be used. One day the hat was missing, and the actor had to
wear the only one he could find, which Christina had carefully placed there. After
Sothern and Marlowe broke up she joined a Shakespearian company which made a tour
of the South. She played two small parts and was understudy. Upon her return she
became leading lady in "Laugh, Clown, Laugh," in which Barrymore played. She acted
this role very well.
After a short time she went on a vaudeville tour of Keith's where she was very
successful. Christina married Dr. Percy Davidson and is now producing plays at Rad-
cliife. She always loved work and if there was time between engagements would take
a job of waitress or anything, just to be busy.
There are also many other Parkerites who have chosen the stage for their career
and who have met with success. It is really remarkable that so many graduates of this
small school have really become well known actors. It can be truly said of Parker
graduates on the stage, as in every other profession, that they are leaders in achievement.

"A WORD FROM THE ALUMNI"
The activities of the Parker Alumni Association during the past year have only
in part been centered around the very successful dinner of the Association during the
Christmas vacation. A great number of the Alumni were present at the annual dinner
and were elaborately entertained by modernistic clog dances and monologues by the
Alumni and members of the Senior Class, and friendly and instructive speeches from
The greater activity of the Association resulted in the sending of a questionnaire
to three hundred and forty-four of the Alumni in which their opinion was requested
concerning their attitude toward the Parker School training. The results of this ques-
tionnaire can be considered very gratifying to the school as a whole. By far the great
majority of those answering prefer Parker training for their children. A few prefer it
only for the grade school and only a very small number do not want it. The greater
number stressed the fact that the advantages of Parker training life in its emphasis
upon individuality, upon the close contact of the individual student with a faculty of
high quality, in the Parker stimulus to intellectual curiosity, in the Parker tradition
with its closely knit social life, and in the value of morning exercises for developing
community spirit and contacts with many and varied interests.
The questionnaire showed that the bulk of Alumni attend the three nearest univer-
sities but a considerable number have attended easter-n schools and colleges. In regard
to Parker's training for college, the great majority felt it adequate. In their college life,
the Alumni showed by their lengthy list of college honors secured, that the school
clearly produces leaders. They showed also in their interests pursued, that the schoolis
cultural development very strongly affected their lives, and the cultural values
established at Parker continued to influence them.
Certain important suggestions and criticisms were made by a minority of the
Alumni regardi-ng what they consider a lack of discipline in the school particularly in
the high school which some felt affected their college preparation These suggestions
Paga Tzunlg thru

PARKER RECORD ,ji
were based upon a feeling of a lack in mental discipline in teaching how to study and
in the training of pupils to distinguish essentials. The questionnaire showed that a
great majority of the Parker Alumni take up professional careers after their graduation.
The answers to the questionnaire fully substantiate che basic principles underlying
the school regarding an individualistic training of a high cultural order, and heartily
endorse its traditions. The results of this questionnaire should be of interest to every
present pupil of Parker.
The Alumni Association hopes that through the continued support of each
graduating class, it may become a closer influence in the development of the school. It
heartily congratulates the present graduating class upon the opportunities it has had
from attendance in the school and hopes that throughout a worthy life the members
of the class will continue to hold the school in high regard and friendship.
ALLAN HEALY, Pres.
THE PARENTS ASSOCIATION
In days gone by, when school meant merely a place where children were kept occupied
and out of mischief, the teacher would see signatures on the back of the children's report
cards every month and thus would be acquainted with the fact that her pupils really had
Times have changed. Today every progressive school has its Parents Association
established for the purpose of fostering close contact between faculty and parents. Science
has taught us that modern education requires the utmost cooperation between those who
have the child during the school hours and those who look after his welfare at home. The
natural result is beneficial to teachers and parents as well as to the children. Teachers
possessing greater knowledge of the home environment of their pupils, can more efficiently
perform the diflicult task with which they are confronted, while parents acquainted with
the problem the child presents at school can better do their job of parenthood
Parker, as usual, has been one of the leaders in promoting the progressive idea of
cooperation between school and home and for many years has had an actively functioning
For the year just about to close, the Parents Association held an interesting series
of meetings: On November 19, 1929, Dr. Solomon B. Freehof gave an address on
"Adolescence, the Age of Crisis," which was of great benefit to all of the large audience
that heard him. This was followed by a reception to the new parents. As usual, the
December meeting was Toy Shop Night, with the largest turnout of carpenters, dress
makers, painters, etc., that the school has ever had. This unique event of Parker's
affords a great deal of pleasure to the hard-working parents. At the January meeting
Dr. Charles G. Obermeyer gave an intellectual talk entitled "The Coming Reconstruc
tion of Education." Many of the parents attended the intensely interesting lecture by
David Seabury given February 6 before the faculty on the subject of "Everyday Mental
Hygiene," and at the regular February meeting, Mrs. Beatrice Ensor, founder of the
New Educational Fellowship, spoke on "The Focal Points of the New Education
The grade meetings of the year have been more carefully planned and have mark
edly improved in value to the mothers
The most significant new feature of the Parents Association this year has been the
formation of a Study Group to consider seriously the special problems of parents. Six
meetings have been scheduled for the spring term, with people of prominence to lead
In conclusion, I would call attention to the fact that this Association exists for all
of the parents, and it is felt that an active participation in the activities will react bene
ficially. Our future plans are ambitious ones, requiring the cooperation of all

LOU ELIZABETH BAILEY
Entered in Seventh Grade

Here's a girl we don't know very wellg
yet what we know is every bit compliment-
ary. Lou has more honest-to-goodness com-
mon sense and brains than any other girl
in the senior class, and when you will be
fooling around, Lou is doing tomorrow's
home work. She is quiet. She tends to her
own affairs and talks but little. She knows
what's her business and what's yours, and
acts accordingly. She never has excuses
for she needs none. Hard-working, accu-
rate, studlous, and self-contained, her prac-
tical mind and firm good nature will take
her far. She'll need no one pushing from

Jean didn't arrive until the Eleventh
Grade, but she will leave her mark indelibly
stamped on our minds. Not very much gets
by Jean. She can understand just what you
think is pretty well hidden. Not only that
but no matter what you want done Jean
will do it for you if it lies within her power.
Her reputation for generosity and a good
nature is not limited to the school alone. The
whole city must know it, for she was elected
secretary of the Junior Red Cross of Chi-
cago. We feel sure that Goucher will be as
proud of her as we have been.

To criticism or disapproval Virginia turns
her open, frank countenance and her strong-
est efforts at improvement or the mending
of her ways. She always tries to help you
out if you need anything which she can do
or give. In school she has thrown herself
whole-heartedly into athletics. Outside of
school she leads a band of girl SCOutS and
teaches in Sunday School. One can scarcely
think of her without memories of candor

Dick is our author, writer of sophisticat-
ed, impossible, but nevertheless popular anec-
dotes about the upper strata of societyg our
colorful athlete, not always entering into
things with spirit, but nevertheless full of
nerve and fire. Our celebrated scholar pulls
down high marks with seeming lack of effort
but nevertheless is capable of feverish out-
bursts of speedy work, taxing his intelligence
and versatility to the utmost. He is notably
the most talked-about "man in the class,"
although he does a great deal of the talking.
A finished musician. A self-educated, dar-
ing radical who changes from side to side
without scruple. Dick is much criticized,
but always in the public eye.

Alfred is one of the most truly cultured
members of our class. Moreover, he is a
good leader, a responsible manager, and an
intellectual speaker. He had a chance to
make use of these talents in his capacity as
president of the Forum. No one could have
made a better job of it than Al. His aim
was to make every Forum presentation as
'nearly perfect as possible. And he more
than realized the expectations of the most
optimistic. Alfred was also on the Extem-
poraneous Speaking team and was one of its
best speakers. His talks were always inter-
esting and revealed his wise range of infor-
mation in almost every field.

Lizzie is our artist. Remember in Eighth
Grade the bold knights and fair ladies she
used to draw for us? Liz is always ready to
laugh and her High C giggle is quite con-
tagious. Lizzie has a will and when it's set
on something there's no breaking it. Many's
the time in a hockey or basketball game,
when Lizzie's team was losing or the score
was tied, she made up her mind to win, and
we did. And she's got heaps of energy, too,
and whenever you want some of it, you're
sure to get it and plenty of it, because when
Lizzie helps you, you know then what help
really means. We,ll never forget you, Liz.

Through the twelve years that Johnny
has attended Parker he has shown remark-
able mental capacity. True, he's a slow,
methodical thinker, but he produces the re-
sults. He's 'not so 'slow on the gym floor
and there's as much strength in Johnny's
right arm as there is in his steadfast de-
pendability, though not more. Aviation
and medicine interest him. Ha! A flying
doctor. He's a level-headed fellow with a
jovial grin. He once had soft black hair,
but Johnny is sure that the up-and-coming
curls are not "motivated" by mental kinks.
We're sure of that too, Johnny.

Art's a scrapper. Do we need to say any-
thing more? Well, all right, he's one of the
best and most efficient of all the presidents
of Student Government of Francis Parker.
Isn't that enough? If you insist, we have
only to say that he was quarterback and
captain of our football, or that he was a
mainstay of the lightweight basketball team
in the r6le of a fighting guard. More? Art's
a leader. It takes him pretty long to get
somewhere, but when he gets there he's at
the top of the heap. His aggressiveness is
well known-he's small, but mighty. What
he begins, he ends. If you should take a
vote of the school and the faculty, you'd
get the finishing touch-he's popular.

Teeny, and so she is, but did you ever see
or know of anyone so small yet possessing
so big a brain, which she uses, too. But
she is not just studious, for besides excelling
in academics she shows skill in athletics.
Who will ever forget her amusing and re-
alistic portrayal of the impertinent maid in
the senior play? She is fun-loving, good at
advice, and quite affable when you get to
know her. Teeny ranks as one of the best
dancers in the class. Goucher is lucky to get
our tiny blonde.

his brother's flying banner, but he made his

contemporaries, all on his own. He's a quiet,
reserved fellow, forceful and genial, with a
shock of brown hair and an enigmatic smile.
As the class Treasurer and as Assistant Judge
he fulfilled all requirements. He's a slight
scrap of a boy yet he's an agile basketball
"hero" and nimble of mind. He was with
us only a short time, but we'll remember
him for long.

"Lindy!" was our first word when we saw
Jack. He has somewhat of a poetic nature.
In his quiet, sensitive way he is an admirer
of fine and artistic things. He is well-versed
in French and Spanish and is quite a musi-
cian. Jack is very well-read, having dipped
into most every type of literature. He is a
capable student, a hard-working Forum ac-
tor and Business Manager of the Record.
And the girls say he is a wonderful dancer!
Jack's constant willingness to work, his op-

made him popular throughout the school.

When we think back to the dances on
Field Day, whether they were with scraps
of colored chiffon or the gay ribbons of the
May pole, one stands out distinctly and
that is Hester,s. Tall, dignified, she is de-

most graceful and stately May Queen. At the
Christmas service she awed us all with her
lovely voice. Most ably she leads the Glee
Club to unusual heights. Whether she goes
on dancing or singing she surely will carve

Raymond is a hard worker and a clear
thinker. These attributes alone would have
won for him the admiration of the whole
class. In his junior year he won a prize book
for his high academic standing. Besides, he
is an excellent speaker, and head of the de-
bating group of the Forum. In spite of all
these activities "Immy" has time for a good
joke or a poor pun always at the proper mo-
ment. If Raymond applies himself outside
of Parker as he has done here, he can not
help but be a great success.
Entered in First Grade
Having been with us since the first grade
Willard, of course, we know well, so well
that some of us take him for granted. He's
genuinely competent. His work may be seen
in Student Government activities, in basket-
ball, in tennis, and on the Record. His con-
tributions to The Question Mark possess real
literary quality. In "Nerves," his portrayal
of the hero was excellent. In general, he
knows his own ability and doesn't hesitate
to use it where it is needed. We hope that
his talents may always be there when needed.
Entered in Tenth Grade
Art is always ready with the proper an-
swer to any question you may ask, though
it is seldom in a serious vein. Art could find
a joke in a pair of crutches, and make you
laugh at it, too. He does settle down every
now and then, and when he does the results
are always a bit better than those of any-
one else. He always tries. He may not al-
ways succeed but he doesn't growl about it.
Art plays the flute in the orchestra with
great success. He will undoubtedly add to
Parker's reputation when he reaches college.

He is quiet, intelligent, efficient, and im-
partial. His calm, deliberate manner of
speaking and his excellent judgment'help
him to defend his carefully thought out
ideas from the erratic judgment of some of
his classmates. These talents were a great
asset to' him in his successful term as Judge.
He also held positions as football and basket-

There has been no disturbing influence, nor

achieved, and one that leaves its impressg
yet one is not conscious of any sacrifice of

along other lines too. She has very enviable
talent in art which she intends to develop
when she leaves Parker. Although Jo has

There was a general shuffling and muffled whispering as some went to their seats.
Mr. Immerwahr led the more timid to the places and helped others arrange their aprons
tidily about their persons. I was a literary fanatic and, desiring to see just how the
minds of those in this new type school were developed, I was the visitor of the day who
was causing so much whispering and giggling. The students turned and surreptitiously
ogled me, and I returned their stares in a friendly manner. There in a corner Miss
Daseh, Miss Wightman, Miss Wahlstrom and Miss Beard were gleefully laughing at me.
In the immense and completely equipped sand-box Billee Naehman was constructing a
printing press. Mr. Messinger, Mr. Kepecs, Mr. Resnikoj, and Mr. Eekstorrn were
assisting him, Paul playfully pouring the sand down the backs of the others from time
to time and laughing boisterously over each puckered face. In the center of the room,
within a large pen, Kathryn Risher, Miss Henius, Miss Hempstead, Miss Foster, and
Miss Nelson were building blocks. "There's one in every group." Here Miss Risher was
always asking questions, and it was Miss Henius who said in response, "Let's play."
john Redmond, Mr. Bridges, the two tall, slender ones, stood in one corner playing
with the drinking fountain. First one would squirt the other, then vice versa. At the
blackboard Mr. Rosenthal was drawing with a shaky hand queer figures with colored
chalks. Miss Moses and Miss Mayer, under the tutelage of Miss Bailey, the assistant
teacher, were reciting cute little poems from Maiden's Meditations. Miss Roehling and
Miss Gazlay were absent. Their sons-in-law had taken them on a trip to the Dunes.
Mr. Frankel was very quiet. His attention was rooted to the test-tubes of colored
water he had been playing with. Mr. Keller and Mr. Fischer came tumbling in late.
Their excuse was that the grandchildren's chauffeur had to put on a new tire. Miss Cohn,
after having quarreled with Mr. Frankel, was sitting at her table doing nothing. Miss
Greene and Mr. Havemeyer were dancing to "Ring Around a Rosie" about Howard,
trying hard to distract his attention from the blackboard. Miss Schwartz was sprinkling
the plants in the window boxes at Mr. Immer'u1ahr's request. She spilled occasionally
because she was talking and giggling with Miss Diamond. From the cloak-room came
the bleatings of a harmonica. Mr. Rosenstein came forth vigorously pufling, ably
accompanied by Miss Lyon, who was banging on a toy drum. just outside Mr. L.
Goddard was endeavoring to keep in hand an ambitious bunch. Mr. Galt insisted on
climbing trees. Mr. Iaques and Mr. S. Goddard were playing tag to see who could
keep the golf ball they had found, and Mr. Lynch was hiding the disputed ball behind
a lilac bush. Miss Hartman, so the teacher said, was absent because her daughter-in-law
was buying her her summer clothes. Miss Suzanne had to have a fitting. Miss Pruyn
was cutting paper dolls with Miss Rohineau and Miss Krulewieh while Miss Krumholz
was sitting on the floor cradling a dirty puppy that had strayed into the room.
There, Richard, that is my impression of the National Kindergarten. Miss Bailey
said that its principle is to provide wholesome and well-directed play for those individuals
in that state of second childhood. Yes, you can sign my name to this article. For the
Tribune, isn't it? The whole class was graduated from Parker in 1930. Yes, I used
the ladies' maiden names for convenience' sake. Now I would like to know if there is
a second adolescence.

Francis Parker Junior Class-the class of thirty-one,
Wishes to announce to you that it has just begun
To climb the golden ladder
Up to the Hall of Fame,
Where each member is determined
At last to write his name.
If any one has cause to doubt,
We only ask a minute
To tell you of our glorious name,
And all that there is in it.
Below you'll see a list of Words
fTheir strength you can't denyj
Characteristics of the Junior Class,
On which you can rely-
"What's in a name?" some one has said,
Well, these are things we've found,
And every letter that we've used
Within our name is bound.
Not for one fbutj for all!

THREE CHEERS FOR THE GOODLY SOPHS
just give a look to what we done. We sez, sez we, "Out with the ould an' in with
the new." We threw a strut without even a stunt and it went over big. We got a lot
of people in the first dancing class and many of us are members of the Friendly Relations
Club so you see we are great in social woiks.
In athletics we done noble. We nearly all went to the park for hocky and we gave
the other high school basket ball team hart failure and one good run for their money.
Our baseball skill is not to be sneered at neither. We have some hard hitting fast runnin'
and curve pitchin, players.
As far as studies go-Oh well, we won't go into that. We couldn't be bothered.
However we have a few like jane Bethge and such who hold up our record.
Believe it or not we nearly all turned out at the school parties, outsides games and
even the Forums. When people go among the patriotic sophs they think the school is
haunted because there is so much talk about the school spirit.

In History we are pretty dumb,
In Latin, just get by,
In algebra we do not know
Why x plus z makes y.
Our days of joy are numbered thus:
The Freshman Prom comes Hrst.
Then Student Government welcomed us.
We finally into Sophomores burst.

The Class of '62
There once was a teacher who taught in a shoeg
She had so many pupils she didn't know what to do.
You must all know that in this said shoe
Was a second floor and a portable too.
Eighteen she put on the upper floor,
And in the portable were left forty-four.
They ate up history, Geography, and Math,
And oh, what indigestion some of them hath!
They picked up small brushes and worked many hours
Painting old English letters and colorful flowers.
In the beginning they had a clock,
Sometimes it ran and sometimes not.
One fine day they got a clock
It was electric-it never stopped.

From whirling snowflakes out of the sky.

Remember the year they spent in a shoe.

MR. WOLF MAKES A FAILURE
Brother Fox Ccoming along the big roadj: Brother Rabbit has played so many
tricks on me that I arn getting to be the talk of the town. I don't feel very happy
about it. I hope I don't meet any of the animals to-day.
Brother Wolf fcoming out of the woodsj: There goes Brother Fox. I'l1 tell him
my plan to catch Brother Rabbit.
Brother Fox fspeaking to himselfj: There's Brother Wolf. I wish I hadn't come
Brother Wolf: How do you do, Brother Fox?
Brother Fox: Oh, so so!
Brother Wolf: How's your mother and daddy?
Brother Fox: They're so so.
Brother Wolf: And your brothers and sisters?
Brother Fox: They're all right.
Brother Wolf: You look as if something was wrong. What is the matter, Brother
Brother Fox: Nothing.
Brother Wolf: I have a wonderful plan to catch Brother Rabbit.
Brother Fox: What is it?
Brother Wolf: Get him into your house.
Brother Fox: Oh, I've tried that, Brother Wolf. It's no use. The trick is worn
to a frazzle. fBrother Fox starts to walk away.j
Brother Wolf: Wait, Brother Fox. You go home and lie on your bed and pretend
that you're dead. When Brother Rabbit puts his hands on you, grab him a-nd hold him
until I come.
Brother Fox: That's a good plan, Brother Wolf. I'll go home now.

Brother Wolf: And I'll go tell Brother Rabbit. If we don't get him for supper
Joe's dead and Sal's a widow.
fBrother Wolf raps at Brother Rabbit's door.j
Brother Rabbit: Who is it?
Brother Wolf: A friend.
Brother Rabbit: Too many friends spoil the dinner. Which one is this?
Brother Wolf: It's Brother Wolf. I bring you sad news.
Brother Rabbit: Sad 'news is soon told.
Brother Wolf: Brother Fox died this morning.
Brother Rabbit Qopening the door a little Wayj: Where is your mourning gown?
Brother Wolf: I am just going to get it. Good-by. i
Brother Rabbit: Good-by!
fBrother'Wolf goes off sadly.j
Brother Rabbit: I wonder if it is true. I don't think Brother Fox can be dead,
because he was too young to die. Perhaps a hunter shot him. I will go over to Brother
Fox's house and see for myself.
' Act III .
Brother Fox flocking through a crack in the doorj: There comes Brother Rabbit.
I must make believe that I am dead. tHe stretches out on the bed.Q I'll catch him
this time. I am sure I shall.
Brother Rabbit fopening the door cautiouslyjs I'd better be careful. Maybe
Brother Wolf is hiding inside the house ready to pounce upon me. tHe looks about.j
I think it will be safer to stay near the door. Ishould think that there would be some
of the animals here mourning over Brother Fox's death. Not even Brother Turkey
Buzzard has come to the funeral. I hope that Brother Fox isn't dead, but I expect he is.
When a man comes to see dead folks, dead folks always raise up their behind leg and say
wahoo! fBrother Fox keeps very still.j This is mighty strange. Brother Fox looks as if
he were dead, but he doesn't do as if he were dead. When a man goes to see dead folks,
dead folks always lift up their behind leg. and say wahoo!
Brother Fox Qlifting his hind legj: Wahoo!
fBrother Rabbit runs away as fast as he can.j
Brother Fox fsitting upj: He's gone. I wonder why he ran away!
The Seniors asked the Third Grade if they would write something for the Record.
We thought it would be pleasant to make a play out of one of the Uncle Remus stories.
We acted "Mr. Wolf Makes a Failure" several times and then we wrote it down as
we remembered playing it. '

When the leaves are just peeping
Out of their snug Warm houses,
And the grass is coming out of the earth,
And the birds are singing from the trees,
And it's time you should be at perfect ease,
Come onto this bench under the trees,
Look at the large open sky.
I can see a butterfly,
Kites are flying over head,
Birds are flying around,
Twittering, nesting, hopping, everywhere.
The smoke is rising higher and higher,
Until it touches the sky,
Sometimes it comes from trains,
Sometimes it comes from houses,
And buses, and cars, and Hre.
Bees buzzing on the lavender crocuses,
Why donit you get some honey for me?
Is it because you donit Want to,
Or is it because you are giving it to your family?
I like honey and so do you. .

-Q FOOTBALL l
The football team this year labored under two great difficulties, namely, light
weight and lackof experience. Parker was outweighed by all its opponents, but especially
by North Shore and Onarga. The lack of experience in the players this year can well be
judged by the fact that there were only a few men who had ever played football, and
none of these were letter men. Mr. LeGault coached the team, assisted by the valuable
aid and suggestions of Mr. Negronida and Mr. Wright. They did their best to make it
a victorious eleven, and they are to be thanked for making the team what it was. Mr.
Wright gave most of his time to the Eighth Grade and Freshman Group.
The first game of the season was at North Shore, where the opposing team, which
greatly outweighed us, had been in a football camp since the last of August, practicing
twice a day, and were therefore in good condition and were working together. Since we
had had only eight hours of practice we did well to hold them to a score of 18-o by hard
fighting, as is shown by the fact that the North Shore Coach said that this was the
hardest-fighting Parker team he had seen in years.
The team came back from North Shore pretty well banged up, but with the deter-
mination to do better next time. A petition for practice Hve days a week was handed in
and granted, and the team worked hard to get into shape for the Latin game. At this
game the team showed great improvement, and after a good, hard, clean game the score
was tied o-o.
Again after several weeks of practice we met Harvard, and although fighting hard
went down to defeat 14-o. They got their first touchdown by a long, sixty-yard end
run, and pushed their second one over after we fumbled on our own fifteen-yard line,
and failed to recover. The playing was more even than the score indicates. Parker com-
pletely fooled Harvard on a shoestring pass, and then did not complete it. Another time
we took the ball down the field for three first downs in succession. Several Parker men
received injuries at this game which were a great hindrance to them for the rest of the

Several weeks later, with our squad diminished by illnesses and weakened by injuries,
after the dismissal of three regulars for breaking training, we went to Onarga. Here
Onarga's heavy and well-oiled team beat us 44-6. However Parker's light team played
the best game of the season at Onarga, and made them fight hard for every inch they
gained as well as accomplishing a good deal offensively by making the one touchdown
of the year, and also carrying the ball once more to the enemy's one-yard line, then fail-
ing to put it over.
The team is to be praised for givi-ng its best.
Those receiving major letters for football were: J. Lynch, Managerg A. Galt, Cap-
taing F. Bridges, Bethge, S. Goddard, Havemeyer, Jaques, Eckstorm, Frankel, Resnikoff,
McKenna, Selsor, Eichberg, Sturm.

Basketball has been played at Parker for a longer time than at a good many Chi-
cago schools. Many alumni return to tell us about the team, in one instance, which
beat that year's city champions, and many boast of fives that never lost a game.
The last Parker team that approached such a record was the lightweight team of
1928-1929. This team went through the season losing only one lightweight game of
the whole series. In only one other game were they defeated, and then by a heavyweight
team of the Harvard School.
This lightweight team had only one Senior playing upon it, so that all the other
players, mostly Juniors, were eligible for either the heavyweight or lightweight team
this year. Three of these men turned heavyweight.
With two men new to the High School, the heavyweight team started its season.
If the success of this season is going to be determined by the number of games won, our
team might fall short. For although it was called a heavyweight team, the majority of
its members could have played lightweight. With this handicap, and also the fact that
our practice during each week was less than half that of the schools with which we
played, we were hard Put to win, and several teams defeated us, a list which included
Latin, Harvard, North Shore, and Onarga.
However, no one could doubt that our team was a scrappy one, as all of these games
would indicate, because in only one of them was the team defeated by anything like a
big margin. Most of the games were close, so close indeed that Parker -got the general
reputation of not being able to win a close game.
But these illusions were soon shattered when We defeated Luther twice in one Week,
winning one game by the ge-nrous margin of twelve points, but winning the other by
a margin of only one point. Earlier in the season we defeated North Shore by three points
in a game which brought a large part of the school to the gym.
Although we lost some very promising players in the middle of the season because
of infringement on the training rules, it seems to me that there has never been a greater
spirit of scrap and sportsmanship in a Parker team. FRANK BRIDGES

The "Lights" this year were not nearly so bad as their scores might indicate. In
every case they played against teams which far outclassed them. As an example each
school that we competed with had been allowed from four to five times as much
practice as ourselves.
We began our season with bright prospects. Art Galt and Jaques were the only
veterans left from last year. Bus Goddard, a new man of much ability, was elected
captain, but unfortunately he was shifted to the heaviesg and after the first game Jaques
was elected temporary captain and acted as such for the rest of the season.
In the opening game we downed North Shore in the fi-nal minutes, I7-13, with a
spurt of three baskets in as many minutes. The next week, however, we took a crushing
defeat from Latin, 22-9. At the half the score was 6-5 in our favor, but our oppo-
nents' ability to sink baskets piled up the score. It may be said here that throughout
the season the predominating "iight" of every member of the team was displayed as in
the Luther game when in the last two minutes we tied the score twice and it was only
due to a free throw in the last half minute of the overtime period that we lost, If-I4.
We swamped Harris the following week, 35-5, in practically the first half. At North
Shore it was a much faster and more experienced quintet which greeted us than the one
we had defeated earlier in the season. Their fast passing attack defeated us, 24-16. In
our Hnal game at Latin it was a repetition of what happened before. We were far
cfutclassed and the game ended 23-IO.
In respect to individual merit, Captain Jaques, playing his third year in the lights,
led the scoring with 40 points and directed the defense. Art Galt backed up the rest
with his able guarding and dribbling. Redmond, the third senior on the team, played
a steady feeding game at center. Zohrlaut and Stapleton, forwards, added both points and
fight, as did R. Galt and Sammons. All the above players received letters, and with
the fine material left over from this year, the Lights of next season are due to continue
their fight and pile up bigger scores.

This year in all the four high school grades the standard of playing has improved
a great deal over past years, and we have fair promise of fine teams in the future.
A more systematic plan was adopted this year than has formerly been used, and it
seems to have helped. The first half of the season was devoted to drill which we then
put to practical use in scrimmage. In this way we developed some level-headedness to
substitute for the wild, hit-or-miss playing, of which we often make too generous a use.
The second half of the season was given over to official games in two series, and one
Blue and White game, won by the Whites 3-o. The winning team was made up of
Freshmen and Sophomores, and the losing of Juniors and Seniors. In the first series
everyone played, in the second series the picked teams played. During the earlier part
of the season, weather permitted most of the games to be played i-n the park. There the
large field did much to encourage the development of skill in passing and dribbling.
In general, the type of playing displayed this year shows gain over that of former
years, but there is still room for improvement in the seemingly small points of technique.
Interest in girls' hockey has increased much during the past few years, but we still lack
sufficient time. A plan intended to help overcome this difficulty was suggested this year.
The idea was to encourage small groups to utilize the Student Activities period on differ-
ent days during the week, in voluntary drill. The plan succeeded, in part, and only par-
tial success was expected the first year. We think that when this procedure is made cus-
tomary the standard of playing will inevitably be raised, and we hope that similar pla-ns
will be discussed and considered early next year, for there is excellent material in the
High School, and it would be unfortunate if every effort were not made to develop

The Girls' basketball season ended with a bang on Thursday, March 20th, with
the annual "spread.', For the first time in a meeting of this kind the basketball letters
were awarded to the deserving girls Uuniors and Seniors onlyj. The girls who received
their major letters this year are: Eleanor Wahlstrom, Elizabeth Foster, Lou Elizabeth
Bailey, Hannah Pichler, Virginia Martin, Mary Virginia McKee, and Doris Lackritz.
Last year Doris Cohn, Edna Krumholz, Virginia Beard, and Ethel Webster won their
major basketball honors.
Considering the irregular turnout in the high school for basketball, this year was
a very successful one. The small group of freshman girls who came out barely made
a team, but those who did come out were faithful and interested and deserve credit.
Let's hope they have a one hundred per cent turnout next year!
The Sophomores were outstanding, both in their regular attendance and in their
excellent team work. Keep it up, you Sophs!!
And now as to the Juniors, who maintained their same old fighting spirit through-
out the whole basketball season. They have great promise for a wonderful senior team
And last but not least ffar from leastj we have that little faithful band of seniors
who put everything they had into every game they played, and who in the end won the
school championship for the year I929-30.
The class captains were as follows: Senior, Eleanor Wahlstromg Junior, Frances
Hannah Levyg Sophomore, Marjory Demorest, Freshman, Ja-ne Dahl.
The Blue and White games were especially good this year because the teams were
so evenly matched. After a hard and long struggle the Whites finally triumphed over
the Blues. , VIRGINIA BEARD

This year fenci-ng has made such huge progress that every girl in the class, including
the beginners, was ready to challenge Douglas Fairbanks, Ben Turpin, or any other
excellent fencer that you wish to mention. Why, they would scare those men out of
their Wits by merely making their usual fencing faces, let alone displaying their extra-
ordinary skill. But when they discussed the matter with Mrs. Wright, she thought it
over and decided that the consequences would be too serious if such a challenge was
made, it was queer that she didn't mention for whom, but of course they all knew.
But, seriously speaking, fencing has been very successful this year. The beginners
have Worked conscientiously and have caught up with the old timers by leaps and
bounds. They are a skillful bunch, and, to tell the truth, we old timers had to be "on
guardv all the time. Fencing is loads of fun although it is exacting work, and the thrill
of making a point is worth all the hard work put into it. Really, it's great sport!

At the time this Record goes to press, the school is still anxiously awaiting the
coming baseball season. For at this time also, the majority of students Qand, in all
probability, the faculty tooj is afflicted with that almost inevitable May malady, Spring
Fever, for which the sole cure for maybe its only reliefj lies i-n participation in a
"snappy" baseball game.
At Parker the girls are divided, according to ability, into three groups, each group
comprising two teams. Thus competition is afforded in each group. We try to take
our baseball more or less seriously by attempting to acquire as many of the fine points
as possible, and in combining this with enthusiasm and pep, we really derive a great deal
of pleasure and fun from our games. In spite of the comparatively small amount of
time allotted to athletics at Parker, the primary group has developed quite a few highly
reputable players, as shown by the fact that the following girls have already received
their baseball letters: Lou Elizabeth Bailey, Doris Cohn, Ethel Webster, Florine Gold-
smith, Germaine Benjamin, Virginia Martin, Mary de Tarnowsky, Jane Tomhagen, Lois

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 19 2 9 -3 0
At the end of the school year 1928-29, the Student Government booklet, containing
the Constitution, By-Laws, Rules and Regulations, etc., Was brought up to date, and
Since then there have been a few changes concerning the Jury and Lunch Room
Rules. In connection with the Jury a law was passed which gives everyone a chance to
participate in Student Government as a drawn jury member. The new law provides that
when a person has served a term as a drawn jury member he shall not serve again until
everyone in his class has had the same chance. In connection with Lunch Room Rules
a law was passed to allow cutting ahead in lunch room line, starting at- the sandwich
counter and continuing to the cashier. This law was passed to try to speed up the time
required to get a lunch as there had been much dissatisfaction. The Lunch Room
Committee under the leadership of John Redmond, its chairman, inaugurated the Stag-
ger System of passing to lunch, which means the letting out of classes at intervals of
a few minutes to relieve the congestion in the line. These changes have helped a great
deal, and have speeded up the time required for a person to get a lunch from twelve
minutes to two minutes.
At the beginning of the year there was some criticism of the conduct of certain
study heads as to their severity. However as the year progressed, the attitude of these
study heads was changed to the satisfaction of the Assembly. A new study hall gong
has replaced the old teacher's bell this year, and does away with a lot of trouble for there
is no longer any excuse at the beginning of the period for not hearing the bell. Willard
Jaques, who is chairman of the Study Hall Committee this year, has handled the situa-
tion very satisfactorily. The halls' problem has been managed very well by Mary Vir-
ginia McKee, chairman of the Halls Committee, and her assistants. Ethel Webster,
chairman of the Test Committee, and her assistants, finished their work efficiently early
in the year. The Enforcement Committee, started last year, was headed by Marion

Moses. This committee carried out its purpose properly by bringing before the Supreme
Court all pupils who failed to serve their penalties.
All the Judges and Assistant Judges have filled their positions admirably.
There have been only a few halls and lunch room cases before the jury, but a great
number of study hall cases. No pupil, however, has acquired more than forty demerits
this year while several went much higher last year. The cases referred to the Supreme
Court for the accumulation of thirty demerits have been lessened from five to three.
All these statistics show some improvement over last year, and point to a successful
year. I hope Student Government will continue on this up-grade during its entire
existence, for there is always room for improvement.
Before closing this article I would like to thank formally all the advisers, officers,
and citizens of Student Government for their cooperation through which this year has

As a matter of Record the Forum this year has rivaled any past successes that it
may boast of. Ilm sure that no past president has found the machinery of the Forum
working as smoothly as it has worked this year, with absolute cooperation of the group
heads to simplify presenting well balanced programs. The esprit de corps has been order-
ly, fostering progress towards an Utopian Forum. Not that we want to become too
"goody-goodyy' or continually bow to Minerva, but the judgment of the oflicialsithis year
has been more mature than usual which may be some reflection of the noble senior class.
Next year's achievements will answer that. New this year was the use of pri-nted pro-
grams and the establishment of a pre-review committee for the purpose of reviewing
and selecting the best group presentations for the Friday evening programs. This revis-
ing committee is composed of a voting body of the group chairmen who pass upon in-
tended material. I'm unable to mention names because they would be too numerous but
I wish to extend my thanks and sincere appreciation to those who helped me try to
make the Forum this year the best ever. Allow me to quote from an article I wrote for
"The Forum has no selfish ends to serve, but all act with the same purpose and in
the common interest. An interest in the Forum, however, is as much an interest in our-
selves, for it is we as individuals participating in organizing or presenting material who
benefit beyond mere classroom teaching. Remember, we are not yet out in the world but
still in school, and no amount of instruction will prepare us unless we ourselves put that
instruction to use. The fundamental ideas of the Forum are sound. That is why so many
of those who have once participated in the mechanics of the Forum are its staunch
supporters. They have discovered a means of furthering their own interests, realizing
hopes, and making a practical educational gain.
"For the audience the most that the Forum can hope to do, or should do, is to show
the finest example of the things that affect and that ought to promote the general wel-
fare and progress of the world. In doing that for both participators and audience, lies
the dual educational value of the Forum.
"These are the true conceptions which ought to teach us to realize that the life
of every one of us can find some place and some intrinsic value in the Forum."

A number of improvements of importance have been made in the Weekly this year,
the most notable being the enlarging of the size of the paper.
The Weekly had rather hard sledding at the beginning of the year as the staff was
unusually small. However, the staff worked hard and faithfully until new members
could be gotten. At first no attempts were made to enlarge the paper, all effort being
turned to bringing out atnewspaper as clean and free of typographical errors as possible.
It was not long, though, before it was found necessary to enlarge the paper. The margi-ns
were cut to almost nothing in order to get those much needed four or five extra lines at
the end of each column. Along with this enlargement came the streamer headline. The
Weekly had long felt its inability to stress important news events, and it was very satis-
fying to adopt two additional styles and sizes of type. By this time the Weekly was run-
ning to the very capacity of the press, and it was evident that we would soon have
either to put out an extra page or get a larger press.
Mr. Meyer, the Weekly's technical adviser, here came to the Weekly's aid. He se-
cured an option for us on a larger press which was second hand and of an older model
than the press the Weekly had. However, the larger press was in excellent condition and
very inexpensive as presses go. A deal was arranged with the school by which the school
got the Weekly press while the school's press was disposed of. Thus the Weekly was
able to buy the press outright without the trouble of a bond issue as has been necessary
Shortly after the new press was installed the enlarged Weekly came forth. As the
press had an increase of sixty-six square inches over the old one, larger margins and
longer columns were possible. With these improvements the Weekly's appearance im-
proved one hundred per cent.
Now a few words as to the literary content. There has been very little change in
the literary material of the Weekly. However in the latter part of the year a few excel-
lent short stories, written by the pupils, have appeared. Also a humor column has ap-
peared rather spasmodically, meeting with about the same success.

Because the staff realized that truth, simplicity and accuracy were the outstanding
characteristics of other Records, we decided, this year, to strive' for greater perfection
along these lines. We have kept the book simple in its design because elaborateness would
not convey the Parker spirit and traditions expressed therein. We tried especially to
improve the photographic work in the book, to make it more lifelike and real. We
have seen the necessity for more entertaining and precise writeups.
The achievement of last year's staff, financially, would, we had hoped, be equalled,
but, although no losses were suffered, the staff had difficulty in accumulating the
One of the first acquisitions of this year's staff was the remodeling of our office.
Record workers in the future will have a private and adequate place to work and store
their supplies. Our space for the oflice was acquired last year but the conditions under
which the staff worked were not at all helpful or convenient. The ofiice, this year, has
been made completely usable and is now fairly well-equipped. We hope that within a
very few years the equipment may be made complete.
Due to the interest with which the Alumni writeups in the last two Records were
read, the staff has launched, this year, what we hope will be a series of articles on the
various fields of Alumni activity. The article in this issue, though not as complete as
we should like to have it, is, we hope, accurate.
In keeping with the universal trend towards modernism you will observe that the

1 EXTEMPORANEOUS SPEAKING
Parker has every reason to believe that this third year of extemporaneous speaking
has made certain the school's interest in such an activity The value of public speakin
. L g
to the participant needs no explanation, and the whole-hearted cooperation and interest
of the extemporaneous speaking group has been very encouraging and gratifying. From
those who tried out for the team, a squad of twelve, composed of six seniors, one junior
and four sophomores was chosen, with two as substitutes. The team of I93O is as fol-
lows: Alfred Fischer, Joseph Kepecs, Shirley Greene, Roslyn Robineau, Sterling God-
dard, Bernard Nachman, Edna Krumholz, Mary Virginia McKee, Ruth Kellogg, Milton
Eichberg, Allen Selsor, and Richard Grauman. The team had more experience this year
through an arrangement to speak before the high school several times during the year.
With this advantage, and Mrs. Hannum's conscientious plugging and interest, we
fulfilled our hopes of victory by winning the meet with our old opponent, University
High School, and we also won a meet with Englewood High School. Current Events
were excluded from the topics and the preparation period was lessened to thirty minutes,
with four minutes to speak. The contests were judged on delivery, material, and
organization. Two excellent professors from Northwestern University judged these
contests and commended us highly for our effort in stressing these three significant
Milton Eichberg, who Won first place in each contest, of this year, has been elected
captain of the extemporaneous speaking group for 'next year.
As public speaking draws to a close, we hope that the group that follows will keep
up a live interest in this activity, that Parker may always be proud of it. The team
of I93O highly recommends public speaking!

PARKER RECORD I
This year our former leader, Mr. Woollett, because of illness, had resigned his
oosition to Mr. Larsen, who has a fine music school in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and has
directed several amateur orchestras. We are glad to have him here at Parker.
Our school has deplored the few concerts given by the orchestra this season, but
the school forgets that Mr. Larsen and the members of his small organization had to
take some time for getting acquainted and becoming accustomed to one another. And
then, just as we were progressing nicely, and had given one or two concerts, Mr. Larsen
became very ill and had to miss several weeks of rehearsals. In spite of this fact, he
has added some dif'Hcult musical -numbers to our repertoire. Among them are Hadynls
"Second Symphonyl' in D major, a "Flower Suite" by Benyon, Weber's "Oberon Over-
ture," and the first movement of BeethOven's "Fifth Symphonyf'
The members of the orchestra are:

Everything considered, this year's County Fair was the most successful we have
ever had. This may be attributed, in part, to the excellent planning and organizing
done by Miss Wygant who really made us feel that County Fair Day was a red letter
day in the Parker calendar. More space and more people were the outstanding phases
this year. Instead of the usual plan of placing all exhibits and all booths in the Old Gym
and Front Hall, the exhibits occupied four rooms on the second floor and the Old Gym,
and a Circus and Magic Show were held in the auditorium. The ice cream booth was
put outside in a big tent. The candy was sold in the Hrst grade room, and tea, coffee,
and cakes were served in the New Gym. The front hall was the apex of the whole
affair. The pets, of which there was an overwhelming number, were displayed in the
auditorium and around the grounds. Still, all of our fun and gaiety was not as bright
as it should have been because Miss Cooke could not enjoy the Fair with us. However,
we tried to give her an impression of part of our fun with the assistance of a radio
which was hooked up from school directly to her home. By this means Miss Cooke
was able to hear some of our high school boys and girls sing and play and also to hear
about some of the pets and a bit of the Magic Show. It made us all very happy to feel
that we were sharing our enjoyment with one whose presence we so greatly missed. Thus
ended, on October eighteenth, the biggest and greatest County Fair ever held at Parker.

THE QUESTION MARK
The "Question Mark" is a publication edited by the Junior English class and
published twice a year-once in the fall and then again in the spring. It contains
poems, short stories, and prose written by the pupils and faculty of the school. The
class tries to choose the best of the material submitted, but often very good contribu-
tions are omitted because of lack of space. An attempt has been made to change the
name of this publication, and it may be that a new one will be selected after this Record
has gone to press. "The Question Mark" has been found to be an excellent stimulus
for writing, and gives valuable editing experience to the eleventh grade. May it con-
tinue to exist as one of Parkeris enterprises.
JUNIOR RED c:Ross
The Red Cross Junior Council is a large group composed of representatives from
each of the schools in Cook County, public and private. The function of this council
is to represent all enrolled members of the Jun'or Red Cross. Thus it is this group which
controls the Junior Service Fund. The first ,Saturday of each month is the scheduled
meeting time. A directors' room in the First National Bank Building is reserved for the
group. Suzanne Shaeffer and Jeanne Baumgartl are Parker's representatives. Franklin
Graybower of Lindblom was chairman and Jeanne Baumgartl secretary the first
semester. Maurice Bame of Harvard was chairman, the secretary was the same, for the
second semester. Hospital Work, volunteer service, and incidental "cheer-upl' work
are included in council activities. It is a most interesting activity and well worth

PARKER RECORD A
The candle-lighted auditorium, filled with cheering odor from the two stately ever-
greens gleaming with dripping silver, impressed us with the true Christmas feeling.
As usual the service consisted mainly of Christmas carols and songs in which the
whole high school participated.
Selections from the Bible and the teachings of Jesus were read, and a first grader
recited the story of the Coming of the Christ, from the Gospel of St. Luke.
This year Miss Cooke spoke in appreciation of "World Peace and Understanding."
An unusually deep snow and a severely cold day added Christmas atmosphere to
the exercise and also prevented many who would otherwise have come from attending.
Christmas services gain impressiveness in repetition, to those who have seen them
each succeeding year.
"Well, Mrs. Santa, I'm in an especially good humor at this Christmas time and it is
because the Francis W. Parker School broke their record in toy production this year,',
said Santa Claus, jovially. "They have always helped immensely in my big project of
making every child in the whole world happy, but this year they have outdone them-
"When I got there I first read the 'thank you' letters from last year, and I
couldrft help but wonder how many more there will be this year. Then I went in to
see the exhibit. It was the same wonderful sight as it always is, but it seemed to be
just twice as large. I could imagine the children working, from the little ones washing
and ironing the doll clothes to the high school girls and boys in the 'Big Girls' Gifts'
and Wood departments. They all must have worked with a will to accomplish so much.
Why, if you can believe it, Mrs. Santa, there were 900 dolls of every kind, 325 doll

beds with fine bedding in each one, and hundreds of games, blocks, carts, wooden toys,
steam rollers, and swings, as well as 280 kiddie cars and hobby horses, in the list of
new toys. Then they again made use of my old tradition of the Christmas stocking, by
filling net stockings with candy. I tell you it did my heart good to see the whole thing.
But I've been talking too much. IQet's sit down to the turkey and plum pudding. I feel
as if I could do justice to it after my long talk."
SANTA CLAUS PARTY
It's not very often that Santa Claus can get around before Christmas, and when
the lower grades heard that Santa could come to the school they made preparations for a
big party. First, they invited their parents, the Seniors, and all the new pupils. Then
they planned some dances and some songs for Santa, and everything was then ready for
the party. When all the guests had assembled, six senior boys covered with s-now and
carrying first grade boys on their backs rushed in with a huge yule log. After much
cheering and shouting the log was placed on the hearth. No sooner was this done than
Santa jumped out of the fireplace with a great pack on his back. After Santa was
seated in a comfortable arm-chair, the first grade danced and sang for him. The second,
third, and fourth grades followed with some clever dances and Christmas songs. Then
the children told Santa Claus how all the toys had been made in Parker's Toy Shop.
Santa was greatly pleased and entertained, and wanted to stay lofnger, but he said he
had to gog so reaching into his bag he brought out pop corn balls for all the guests, and
with a cheery goodbye was gone, up the chimney and away.

Nerves a tragic war episode by John Farrar was given as the Hrst of a group of
three one-act plays. The scene is laid in the mess hall of Tiger Squadron in September
1918. The story deals with one Jack Coates played ably by Willard aques a first
lieutenant who, having a bad heart, had been ordered to stay on ground. The fact that
he would or rather could not, go up, leads his comrades to despise him as a bad case
of nerves and cowardice
At the rising of the curtain the audience sees Rook a mess attendant and Jack
talking while waiting for the other men to come back from dawn patrol. When the
squadron arrives, Bob Thatch, who has gone up for Jack, is missing. Jack goes out to
look for him. In the tragic end, after Thatch comes back somewhat the worse for wear
Jack staggers in, and during a period of delirium dies of a heart attack
The play was excellently given coming fully up to the Parker standard of Senior

THE CLD LADY SHOWS HER MEDALS
By M Barrze
The Old Lady Shows Her Medals was the second of a group of three short plays
which comprised the first senior dramatic performance
The Great War IS in progress Mrs Dowey IS a charwoman in London Any
woman who does not have a man at the front is a pariah. So although she never has
been married she adopts the title of Mrs. and finds herself a son. This is accomplished
by her discovery of the name of one Kenneth Dowey of the Black Watch in a list of
names in a newspaper. So Kenneth Dowey becomes Mrs. Dowey s son
Mrs Dowey tells her colleague charwomen of letters from Kenneth as she enter

tains them at tea. Of a sudden enters the Rev. Willings. The reverend gentleman
relates how he bumped into Mrs. Dowey's son, on leave from the front. He further
explains that Kenneth Dowey is outside. Mrs. Dowey's guests leave her to her joy, and
in stalks the brawny kiltie, who, until a minute ago, never knew of her existence.
i At first the Highlander is angry at the old woman, but her kindness .and prospects
win him to consent to his new relations status.
Mrs. Dowey and her son enjoy his leave, with a season of riotous living, and even
w uchampagny wine." Then duty calls and the soldier departs.
In a wordless epilogue Mrs. Dowey ties up the last of the few real letters she has
1 received from Kenneth, and expects no more.
The play was on a high level, and showed hard work and considerable skill. Two
performances of "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals" were given.

"O'FLAHERTY V. C."
N4 After an evening of somewhat more serious things we were confronted with the
Senior's idea of Shaw's comedy-satire, "O'Flaherty V. Cf, Their idea was certainly
k found to be satisfactory by everyone.
, X Sterling Goddard as O'Flaherty was undoubtedly the big star of the cast and the
, ' rest of the characters were also very well taken although the actors did not reach the
peak of dramatic ability that Sterling attained. Roslyn Robineau adequately Hlled the
role of O'Flaherty's shrewish mother. The part of Sir Pearce was taken well by John
Havemeyer. As the gold-digging maid, Tessie, Virginia Gazlay did excellently.
4 The play itself is by no means one of Shaw's best works, mainly because there is
so little action. It portrays the return to his home of an Irish soldier who has been
H decorated by the Queen for a deed about which the audience soon begin to hold grave
Ni doubts. He is an exaggerating and blustering sort of fellow who complains of the noise
and excitement of being decorated as compared with the quiet and comfort of the
trenches. But the decoration and leave of absence produce a great change in him. On
reaching home he realizes what a foolish woman his mother is and what an insincere
xl sweetheart Tessie is and what a silly hypocrite he has been. Altogether this production
A furnished a very suitable third to the evening's series of three. BERNARD MESSINGER

TRELAWNEY OF THE "WELLS"
"Trelawney of the Wells," by A. W. Pinero, is the story of a young actress, Rose
Trelawney, who gives up her career on the stage to marry a young man with whom she
is deeply in love. This young gentleman, Arthur Gower by name, belongs to a very
artistocratic and straight-laced family. Before the marriage the family insists that
Rose spend a short time in the Gower house in Cavendish Square. After two weeks
under this roof the young actress realizes that it would be impossible for her to spend
her life in such an atmosphere of restriction, always living up to the traditions and
unwritten laws of the family. So she swears never to see or communicate with Arthur
again, and returns to the company of actors and actresses in which she has formerly
been known as "Trelawney of the Wells." A young playwright in the company has
written a play which they decide to put on. Rose is to be the leading lady. The young
playwright has conspired with a young actress of the company and they have planned
to rewrite Rose and Arthur. Arthur Gower has left his family and become an actor
and is therefore eligible as leading man for the play. He is notified and accepts the
offer, never suspecting the real motive. Rose, too, is entirely ignorant of the plot.
There is an excellent climax when the two come together. The play is cleverly done
and is most interesting. I

THE JUNIOR PROM
Dear Maw: K
Well, how's you and Paw and Mirandy getting along? Gee, Maw, you know what?
Well, we fthe Junior Class, you knowj are puttin' on a big party up here, a prom I
guess the girls calls it. It's at night and it lasts until real late-until twelve or after,
but I thought being as how the next day was Saturday, you'd probably ,low me ter go
just this once. An' you know the girls say we wear them funny lookin' things without
any sleeves or anything-look kinda like over-alls except for the pants of course! I
'hope that the old hen lays enough so's I kin have one of them affairs to wear like the
other girls. We ain't gonna have no stunt 'cuz I guess it's more ritzier not to. They're
gonna be a lotta eats-cookies and judy or somethin' like that. It's gonna be decorated
an' everythin'. We're gonna have a real band. 'They were talking about Guy somebody.
He don't go to school here tho! And, Maw, you know there's a boy here-Archie, and
he kinda asked me if I'd go along to the strut with him and I wanna man just like
everybody else so I'm goin' with him if you have no object. Write soon. Your lovin'
P. S. We may go to an ice cream parlor after it.
LIARY VIRGINIA Mc KEE
The perfect accomplishment! A party has been given without a stunt, and it
took the 193ofSophomores to do it. From eight forty-five to twelve Qanother attain-
mentj we danced to a really snappy five-piece orchestra, and there wasn't a minute too
much of the smooth music they created. The decorations were really beyond descrip-
tion. A crystal globe made of tiny mirrors hung from 'the center of the gym and was
slowly revolved by a mechanical process. Different colored spotlights were focused on
it and another mirror so placed that tiny irridescent spots of color danced around the
bare old gym.
Punch and cookies were served, although no one ever pays any attention to them.
The high school and faculty were there in full force, as well as the usual number
of guests. Everyone who came had a good time-and I think stuntless parties will be
the vogue from now on.

F RESHMAN PARTY
The Freshman Party, which took place January 24, was one of the most successful
of the current year. After an hour of radio-television with the radio station, I 9 33, we
all danced in the attractively decorated Old Gym. The party was thoroughly enjoyed by
all and should be a model for future freshman classes, under similar disadvantages to
those which the freshmen, alone, had. The party ended about 11:30. All agreed that it
was a great party.
CARL W. STERN
The annual Stag Banquet was held this year at the Webster Hotel. It came at the
end of a fairly good athletic season. The dinner was served about 6:00. After eating a
good dinner, with songs, cheers, and laughter between the courses, the purpose of the
meeting was brought up by Toastmaster Wright. Mr. Osborne was first called on and
,he told us the value of school spirit. He called on Mr: Negronida who gave us some
points on our teams, for he had voluntarily given his time to help make a better team
out of us. Mr. LeGau1t was then called on, and he ran over very briefly some of the
incidents in certain games which were amusing and also told us about our teams. Mr.
Wright then began making a few dirty .digs at Mr. Hannum who took them very peace-
fully. Then Mr. Hannum told us how rotten a baseball player Mr. Wright was and how
he struck out every time he was up at bat. Mr. Carley was next called on, and he said a
few words. The alumni guests of the Banquet, Harry Zander and Russell Olson, class
of 1916, were next called on. The football letters were given out to some twelve persons
and then Captain Arthur Galt of the football team was asked to speak. After Galt's
speech the twelve men that got letters voted for captain of the team for next year, and
Allen Selsor was elected by a large majority. Then the basketball letters and sweaters
were given out to fourteen boys. Then Captain Willard Jaques of the Lightweights
spoke. Lester Goddard, who had first been made captain of this team and then resigned
because he wished to play with the Heavyweights, next spoke. The last speaker of the
night was Captain Frank Bridges of the Heavyweights. The fourteen boys who received
basketball letters elected Raymond Galt captain of the Heavyweight basketball team for
next year. The party broke up at about 8:30.
May Day was one of the most beautiful ceremonies of the year. The lovely Queen
attended by the remaining girls of the Senior Class formed an unusual and picturesque
scene as they marched down the aisle of the auditorium. The fragrance of beautiful
flowers and the melody of the high school singing created a spring-like effect. The
Lord of the May then crowned our chosen Queeng and original poems, songs, and dances
were presented to Her Majesty, from the entire school. The Queen and her attendants
led the gay procession to the garden to plant the customary tree with the good wishes
of the school

Then you may lie down. I will sing you a song."

I am getting so old that I cannot keep so many camels any more,
And besides, some of you are geting so old
That you can not work much.

Alone, one day
I walked a snow-wrapped country road.
Around, about me in majestic grace
Stood graceful trees. i

Down the valley, up the hill,
Through the bare trees to the barn
Where they stop and feed a bit,
Then go proudly on?
The Path of the Moon
There are paths of the woods
I long to follow
And find the moss to be my pillow
There are paths in the garden
Where I often tread
And see each rose and daisy bed
But there 1S a path at night
I long to follow
And sail over each shiny billow
It IS the gleaming path of a silvery moon
It has no turn or bend
Oh' If I could follow it to the end'
Usmg Your Eyes zn the Woods
Without realizing it I have walked too far in this wood too far for my own good
Could I find my way out? Not being a woodsman the trees mean nothing to me To
follow my own desire I would stay on forever in this cool green peace But there is
the family there always is a family or an undone task some string to pull you back
But I will sit down and forget that I may have a struggle to get back
Oh this is real, this vast beautiful quiet only the soft chirping of the birds and
the gentle flapping of their wings as they flutter through that vacant patch of blue
above me or mingle among the leaves a touch of red and purple feather with the green
and yellow foliage A rustling and a crackling of something moving along the brown
yellow and green leaped mto the inextricable green bush
The longer one sits the more this illmutable mass of color divides itself into single
bits of life No longer IS it just a blob of brown that I see before me now I see the
turquoise brook splashing over its white pebbles and beside it the bush sprinkled with
red berries and on its banks all smeared with baby blue and pink the spring beauties
But I must disturb the leaves that have fallen all about my feet and must dis
entangle myself from all this beauty and again must seek the sandy road

Arthur Redmond, jr., was at outs with the world. Certainly he could act as well
as his father, he was like him in almost every respectg he imitated his very habits of
living. Well, why couldn't be achieve even a respectable success? He gazed at one of
the "boards" across from the Coffee Shop in Junkerville's finest hostelry. There he saw:
A . COMING
A SA-r. Nmz
Arthur Redmond, Jr.
son of the
DEAN OF THE AMERICAN THEATRE
Proclaimed the greatest dramatic star
that America can boast of.
This sign was a herald to his arrival. And here he was living on the glory of his father
in a lousy backwater jerk.
The round of applause given him when he came upon the stage every night made
him either angry or sick at heart. They weren't really applauding him, but his father.
And the fact that these people most likely never saw his father made it worse. Like
all other fool audiences they were mere puppets placed in the seats of the house by
ridiculous advertising, ridiculous words and prolific lies. No, it wasnit the people who
were fools, it was the advertisers-no, the people, for believing the advertisers. Oh,
Arthur choked on the last of his breakfast. He had been hungry and had eaten
ravenously. But his mind was made up. He was not going to have anything more to
do with a stage that was merely fools and demigods. He was going to leave the stage
flat. He'd show them a thing or two.
Having fortified himself with a substantial meal, Arthur was ready to drown the
stage in a mud-puddle. He violently swung back his chair and strode in due glory of
his father out of the dining room. He went straight to the clerk's desk. No, they didn't
have a telegraph office in the hotel but they would be glad to relay his message down to
the railway station. Arthur wrote:
"MR, ARTHUR REDMOND, SR.,
NEW YORK CITY.
Dear Dad, hate the stage. Am going to give it up. Shall break my contract. Might cost something.
Want to go back to college. Arthur."
There, that was that and, What's more, a deed Well done. What, anyway, meant
the pilfering pretension of the stage to him? Didn't he have a close connection with it
with a father whom the world recognized as the Dean of the American Theatre? Still,
it galled him that he was evidently a failure. Well, what matter? He would go out for
high finance. In that field he would have a chance for a more sensible life, and a profit-
able one too. Now the only thing to do was to wait for his father's consent and then
-taway from the boom-boom and blare of the degenerate show world. Arthur
"MR. ARTHUR REDMOND, JR.,
Your dear father broke and wishes he had your job. You quit and starve. Stop. You want to go
to college. Stop. Good. Stop. University of Hard Knocks beats all. Stop. Write, don't telegraph. Dadf'
That night when the audience gave Arthur a reception, he really appreciated it and
acknowledged it with true sincerity. Perhaps he hadn't played up to the audience
enough. Flatter them! Use the advance advertiser's methods.
"Well, with two hundred per week and applause assured,-hm, he could stand it,"
he mused as the curtain flopped down.

A Certain Sunday with Mr. X of Book-Shop Fame
It was Sunday today and therefore the entire morning was spent in bed. After a
hard week of work I always feel the need of just such a morning and, what's more, my
appetite at dinner is all the greater for not having indulged in the usual week-day type
of breakfast. I arose at twelve o'clock and leisurely but carefully dressed myself, desiring
to look especially neat--all the while bearing in mind the busy and important day before
me. Mr. Smith was here for dinner and I don't know when I've enjoyed an hour more.
We had a regular heart-to-heart talk during and after dinner and it was too pleasurable
for words. Why is it that my after-dinner cigars are so much more delightfully flavored
when accompanied by conversation of a great personality? I left Mr. Smith down town
at about three-thirty as he was scheduled to attend a concert. Then I repaired to my
dear old book-shop. It looked especially jolly to me today. I think I love it more every
minute. As I entered the room there was a gorgeous odor of fresh spring flowers that
filled me with ecstasy, and I thrilled in the thought of being able to be amidst this fra-
grance during the whole afternoon. A treat indeed! I spent quite a time seeing that
everything was in place, and was thoroughly provoked to find Stephen's picture, of
which I am particularly fond-especially since it is so new-hung in a most crooked
manner. The window had not been opened and therefore there was no possible way of
its being blown askew by the wind. Perhaps when Sophie dusted she was unnecessarily
careless. I was mightily proud of my little shop-especially today for I believe it really
looked its best. The flowers were placed in pretty fashion on the table, and book-cases
and the books on the shelves seemed quite alive to me, as they always do. I often wonder
whether anyone could feel lonely in my little roomu when it is the most lively place
I know. What with my many pictures and worth-while possessions, I should think
anyone would find the.atmosphere most enjoyable and cozy. After deep deliberation
and all trivialities being tended to, I sat down with much time to spare and reveled in
Walpole's newest book which I have almost finished.
At five my guests began to arrive in great numbers. I had no idea that I'd invited
so many, but in a way I was glad, for I'm always pleased to exhibit and share my shop
with many people. Mr. Jones proved to be a charming young gentleman and worthy
of all the praise he has received, though I must admit a certain regret and disappoint-
ment in Mme. de Blanche. I need not write in my diary tonight of all those present, for
I know I shall remember even the least distinguished persons for many years to come.
Truly it was a most gratifying afternoon and everyone seemed quite well pleased.
Tommy and I became engrossed in profound discussion on the Naval Disarmament
problem. We nearly came to blows toward the end and surely there was never a more
fitting climax to anything than when Tommy spilt his tea all over himself and the floor
at a crucial moment. He is a radical young chap but with age he will become more
sane, I feel sure. Sagacity added to his fine mind, though extreme at this stage of the
game, will produce a great personage. Mr. Smith came in after the concert and I was
so happy to see his beaming face again. We went to a rather late supper together, after
I had closed up shop, and sat in the lobby of his hotel until about eleven-thirty discuss-
ing various matters but with much more success and suavity than Tommy and I might
have done it. I returned home to find a telegram from brother John saying he'l1 arrive
tomorrow morning. I foresee a much more eventful week than I expected, for I'm
sure John has brought me new pictures and books for my shop, which will be most
thrilling. After Iohn's telegram I read the newspaper and now, being rather weary, am
about to retire.

The Sea at Night
Tossing, swirling breakers,
Roaring loud between the piers-
Laughing, flashing white-caps,
Dashing high upon the beach
And o er the shining waters
Lights greet thee from afar
And o er the scrubby bluffs
Somber trees they grasp for nothing
And from tthe golden sands
Where bleached wood and colored stones do make the1r home
Dark fingers grasp the sea
With an unremlttlng clutch
The little band clambered up the steep and narrow trail The brown walls of stone
stretched on up ahead Below ID the gorge the Rio Amarillo wound slugg1shly toward
that vast but little known Oceano Pacifico A thin veil of low whlte clouds hung over
the company slowly plodding upwards their faces 1nd1st1nct in the d1m light of the
cannon The sweet musty smell of damp earth and coarse vegetatlon rose from the
ground The men panted the sweat streaming from their foreheads and soaklng their
beards Their nostrils dilated their mouths hung open to catch the faintest breeze The
two Indians their ha1r falling loosely on bare shoulders the corners of the1r mouths
turned down 1n a sullen scowl deep furrows runnlng down the1r cheeks the1r ugly, flat
noses gleammg wlth little beads of perspxratlon slowly worked their way up apparently
oblivious of their struggling white companions
The summlt came closer and closer At last only a few hundred feet remained
Don Rodrigo raised h1s arm The scuffle of feet stopped abruptly The heavy breathmg
of the men rasped through the air A stone dlslodged by a careless boot rattled and
bounced down the trail and out of sight Don Rodrigo pushed carefully toward the
crest His head and shoulders topped the rise There at last he alone stood on that
elevation Below lay a stretch of sandy beach and beyond the Pacific The sun unseen
for days in the gloom of the gorge shone full in his face Slowly he lifted his heavy
steel helmet from h1s head He drew h1s sword carefully from its scabard kissed the
crucifix on the hilt and sank to his knees The men stramed eagerly forward The
sun struck their helmets and breast plates The wind freshened The gasping ceased
The men fell to the ground exhausted their helmets rollmg from their heads

Friends a million leagues away
Like the light of fired souls,
They shine on us with magic ray
That hints to us of future goals.
Like precious jewels within a velvet case
They rest, studded in Eternity.
The secret whims of all our hearts
Find comradeship among the stars.
Is it wrong to kneel in wonder
Before a thought of God
That takes material form?
If on a moonlit night
You see tall trees straining
Toward the star-filled sky,
Or a mighty eagle soaring cragward,
His wings made musical
By the whirring of the wind,
Or stretches of ripened grain
Dotted with blue corn flowers,
Or tiny rivulets flowing
Over mossy stumps crowned with red
Is it wrong to kneel in wonder
Before these thoughts of God?
Kneel then with me, fellow wonderer.
The Map of Adventure
Sail on! O ship, and bear in thy deep hold
Treasure far greater than the Incas e'er could boast.
Sail on! and stay not by the shore-
Earth-bound waters are but for the timorous
Who fear the darkness of the open sea.
Sail on! with the eternal stars-
Break not with Neptune's bloated waves upon some jagged shore,
Nor let the smile of sweet Calypso turn thee from thy path.
Sail on! youth will thy helmsman be,
And with the counsel of old age will lead thee to the cloudless shore.
