For all that you send into the lives of others comes hack into your own." Dedication ---S M, QCWX Flora J. Cooke To anyone who has had anything at all to do with the Packer school, the name of Flora I. Cooke will strike a very familiar chord. To think of Miss Cooke is to think of the very heart of Parkeris history. For there is no doubt that she has played a major role in the growth of Parker, both as a school and as an educational ideal. It is a role which she continues to play. Her smiling face still is dear to students of every age and from every walk of life, her hopes and dreams still inspire her fellow-educators and will continue to do so for many years to come. To many she is a symbol of all that educators should be. The 1951 Record staff is proud to dedicate this book to Miss Cooke, knowing that she has done much to make our school what it is today and through the ideals of Col. Parker, our founder, is striving still, to make it even better tomorrow. KECUKU S rm-r Editors ,, t ,v W ,L , f , L Q M . f .te .M L . . .-- :2:- -. " i - A'f'S" '1S. s f.

Y! any ears in eview 1900-the turn of the century , the end of one era and the beginning of another. To some people it meant simply the continuance of the old way of life: multi- millionaires and grand society queens, stiff Victorian manners and conventions, old fashioned education taught by strict, sober-faced "masters" with the help of the hickory stick discretely applied to the palm or the bottom. But to others it meant a new beginning, a chance to change the manners and customs, to im- prove education. Col. Francis W. Parker was one of these. The dying 90's had been good to Col. Parker, he had been able to experiment with some of his progressive ideas as Superintendent of the Cook County Normal School in Englewood, Illinois. CThis same school has now grown into the Chicago Teacher's Collegej ln 1883, he had refused to be a candidate for the Superin- tendency of the Boston Public Schools in order that he might have the chance to train teachers with' his own methods here in Chicago. But the twentieth century promised to be even better. I-Ie was to be given the chance to execute some of his theories with more freedom than he had ever dreamed of having. He was, you see, to have his own school. Mrs. Emmons Blaine, one of Chicago's first ladies, had become interested in Parker after she had enrolled her small son in the Englewood school. Seeing the progress the child was making under the Colonel's guidance, Mrs. Blaine began to wonder how many great things the 63 year old educator might do if he were unhampered by political and financial insecurity. She organized a group of North Side parents who were also interested in a new type of education and together they decided to see. Mrs. Blaine offered one million dollars to Col. Parker to establish a school where he could carry out his phi- losophy of child training. The gift was accepted and an entire city block Cmost of which is this present sitej was purchased and plans began to take shape for the building. And so it was in September 1900, that the school was opened under the name of The Chicago Institute, in the old Turnverein Bldg. on Wells Street. Col. Parker was making plans for using the million dollar gift in the best way possible when William R. Harper, the President of the University of Chicago, in- vited him to transfer the money to a school on the south side, to be directed by the Colonel but connected with However, it was not long before the parents of the children who had been enrolled in the experimental school-Mrs. Blaine included-realized that this new plan was of no use to their children. The south side school was too far away for the children to attend. Mrs. Blaine, still wishing her son to have the guidance of the Colonel, once more offered a generous gift to him if he would consider re-starting the North side school and becoming the Director of both the north and south side branches. When the Colonel accepted gratefully, Mrs. Blaine went about the business of buying back the old site on Webster Avenue and plans were drawn up for a school building adequate but smaller than the first. Thus a sister-relationship was established be- tween our school and the experimental school of the U. of C. . gjjk ,..,ov""' Uqrzl and share the established name of the University. Parker and Mrs. Blaine discussed the plan many times and finally came to the conclusion that the experiment would be done under the auspices of the U. of C. So the site of the first school was put up for sale. Miss Cooke, whom the Colonel appointed principal of the north side school, and Mr. Ira M. Carley, the assistant principal under Miss Cooke, shared in design- ing the building. The doors of the new school opened as planned in BIC BROTHER AND SISTER DAY This is the clay to which the lower school looks forf ward for some time. For on this clay they acquire a reatlyfmacle family, two senior hrothers and two senior sisters, tleliveretl, post-paitl to each particular class, All through the year this relationship continues as a strong link hetween the older and younger part of the Parker family.

R R September of 1901. The experiment was under way. Colonel Parker and his associates looked forward with one great hope to the future. That hope was, as the Colonel expressed it: "To create a school life so wholesome and joyous in spirit, so rich in opportunity for all-around activity and social service, so compelling in its demands for indi- vidual initiative, for judgment that the laws of human development that every child will necessarily respond four years. That was certainly a wonderful day, but not as wonderful as it might have been. For the good Colonel had died three years before, leaving behind him many empty spaces in the hearts of those who had known and loved him. Yet, he had lived long enough to inspire those who had worked with him by his great hope and courage. And with that same hope, that same courage, Miss Cooke and the others continued carrying out his ideals. it ii A My 'Ht . V . PM N l-il eff' ' T to its influence and act from good motives and from good habits of thought and action." With this hope they continued and, in 1905, the ex- perimental school graduated its first senior class-con- sisting of one girl who had attended the school for This school, they said, should be A MODEL HOME, A COMPLETE COMMUNITY, AN EMBRYONIC DEMOCRACY. Through the years Parker has strived to become all this and in many ways has succeeded. THE MODEL HOME As the years have gone by, the Francis W Parker school has taken great strides in becoming just that. In few schools is there such a family feeling. All share in the common experience of learning. Teachers to the Parker student are not merely instructors, they are friends and advisers, and the same friendly attitude also exists between the older and younger students. Every alumnus will remember these special events each year in which the whole Parker family is brought together: Nay Day. For many years this day was one of the gayest and most exciting days of the school year. There was always the beautiful May Queen and her maids in waiting, watching the performance of original poems, dances and plays. And when her Majesty had seen all the acts, she and her maids would lead a procession out to the east field where several senior boys in behalf of the whole class, would plant a sapling tree. Thus each class felt that even after graduation, they had left some part of themselves at their school, planted deep and still growing. Tield Day in 7-farms 'Woods The Parker family- students, teachers and parents-would all troop out to the forest preserve for a picnic lunch and the tradi- tional games of baseball and tug of war. Invariably, some members of the lower school would wander off from the group to look for new plants and flowers. And every year someone came back with poison ivy, ex- claiming, "Look at the pretty flower I found." Not too long ago, May Day and Field Day were combined into one event called Class Day. In the morn- ing, the same homage that was once paid to the May Queen is now offered to the Senior Class as a whole, and for our picnic the bagpiper now leads us to Lincoln Park instead of Harms Woods. Though some people miss the more rustic quality of the forest preserve, hardly anyone misses the poison ivy. Although these days are very joyous indeed, hardly anything reaches such spontaneous gaiety as the annual County Fair. Designed, at first to exhibit and sell the produce from the lower school gardens once planted in a section of the east field. County Fair is now a full scale carnival. Parents enter into the fun as well as their children.The school is decorated in gay autumn colors and the building is kept in tact despite the turmoil. Of all the events of the school, one day is devoted exclusively to the lower grades. This is the Christmas Party. The seniors give this gala affair for their younger brothers and sisters. Invariably, St. Nicholas pays a visit to the party in order to watch the games and dances performed by the grades. Some are reluctant and cling to their motheris hand when they are invited to tell their special Christmas wishes to Santa. Others, more courageous, want to sit on his lap or hug him. But somehow, Santa always sees to it that every child in the room gets a big smile and a popcorn ball. On special days like these, one senses especially the family feeling among Parkerites. But it is not confined only to these occasions. For somehow, there is some- thing special about the school that makes the alumni come back year after year. Perhaps it is as one of them puts it "that tenuous quality of belonging-of being wanted." Anyway, when, every Christmas holiday season, the whole Parker family converges for the annual tea, one realizes that special something about the school is not forgotten even for those who have long ago left the school. The main attraction at these annual teas is, most certainly, our dear Miss Cooke, who goes about with her habitual smile, greeting all her family and never for- getting a face. A CGMPLETE COMMUNITY However, in a small school like Parker, realizing the first of Col. Parker's dreams for the experiment, "being a model home", is not quite so difficult as becoming a complete community. Yet, the Colonel's school has made great strides in doing just this. Though everyone is recognized as an individual, stress is laid on working together. Many former Parkerites will remember the gardens that once grew each year between the portables on the east field and the auditorium. They were planted, cared for and harvested by the lower grades. In this way the class learned to work together on a common project. WM! H1101 'N Q1 uazuy 1-num-ww vii' xx. . M U' fs"T.w' if 2-1-. This same feeling of cooperation is put on trial every morning at 10:45 in what every Parkerite knows as Morning Ex. Morning Ex may consist of anything from a history of the Chicago Fire to a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, given by any grade from the kindergarten through the twelfth grade. Very often the subject is a direct outgrowth from the classes, a discussion by the biology class, or a French play written by one of the French classes. In all of these, each person must work with others in preparing and performing for their friends. In this way, both the audience and the participants gain by the Morning Ex. One graduate has said that Morning Ex. along with other activities at Parker have given him "A greater appreciation of other people's values." Even outside of the regular school program, there are many things which help to make Parker a com- munity as well as a home. These activities are run by the members of the community-the students them- selves-and provide in part for the recreational, cul- tural and physical needs of the groups. Regularly during the year there are some eight or nine social events to which the whole high school is invited. Some of these, of course, are the four band dances, which have recently fallen into the pattern of: 11 The Autumn Football Dance, given by the Seniors. QD The Christmas Alumni Dance, by the juniors. 35 The February Turnabout by the Sophomores. 45 The final Spring Dance which the Freshmen organize. The Dramatic Association and the Special Chorus take care of the cultural needs. Gnly one who has an interest in dramatics or any phase of the theater can be a member of the D.A. and do what he is best qualified for in a variety of plays. The Dramatic Association is not the only means of dramatic outlet. Classes often give plays in Morning Ex. and there is always the senior play. The play is one of the really big things in the senior year at Parker. And one can never be sure whether it will be a musical comedy or a Shakespearian tragedy. But what could explain better than a list of the plays to date? 1916-Hamlet 1917--Shepherd 1918-The Burglar That Failed Cathleen Ni Houlihan 1919-Admirable Crichton 1920-Master Pierre Palelin The Old Lady Shows Her Medals Pipes and Dryad A Night at the Inn 1921-A Playboy of the Western World The Florist Shop Overtones Lonesome--like 1922-The Will Merchant of Venice 1923-Quality Street The Red Turf The Little Man 1924-Lucky Peter 1925-As You Like It 1926-Tillie of Bloomsbury 1927-Twelfth Night Turn of the Road Aria daCapa 1928-Admirable Crichton Cradle Song 1929-Dear Departed The Valiant 1930-The Old Lady Shows Her Medals O' Flaherty Nerves 1931-As You Like lt 1932-Death Takes A Holiday The Farmers Holiday 193 3-The Faraway Princess The Boar The Queenis Enemies Mac Beth 1934-The Shepherd Cradle Song A .ii1. 1935-The Swan Song Aria del Capo .

The annual spring concert has consisted of such things as Elijah, and The St. john Passion. Two years ago, Kurt Weills "Down in the Valley" was given. We are proud of the fact that this was the first Chicago per- formance of the operetta. However, it is not to be supposed that Sports are forgotten at Parker. The football team, the basketball team, baseball, tennis, track, and swimming teams have all won honors for the school, Each year the sports department gives the father and son banquet-The Stag. The awards are given out here and a well-known guest speaker is often invited. The girls, too, have their extra-curricular sports which comes under a student department, the G.A.A. In the spring they hold the feminine counterpart of the Stag, the Stagette. Although this night of fun for mothers and daughters is comparatively new - this year is the third-it is already somewhat of a tradition, and a pleasant one at that. To keep its citizens informed as to all of these activ- ities, the Parker community has three publications: The Record, the Weekly, and the Prints. The Weekly has all that any good newspaper in- cludes-except maybe comic strips. But it is perhaps primarily interested in providing a vent for any com- plaints or revolutionary ideas a student or faculty member might wish to express. And there are plenty of these. The first issue of the Weekly was printed in one corner of the woodshop and in spite of some misgiv- ings, came out on February 20, 1911. The Prints is concerned only with the literary inter- ests of the community and includes compositions from all the grades. It is the outgrowth of the Recorder which was started in 1906, just 5 years after the school opened. At Parker it is quite an honor to be included in one of its issues. As for the Record, ever since 1916, when the first glimpse of its little blue and white cover was seen within Parker walls, it has been going strong-bring- ing pictures of the years events to brighten up the years end. But though the school strives to become a complete community, it is careful not to become wrapped up in itself. At Christmas of every year, the interest in out- side affairs and the desire to help others takes the form of a week long project called Toy Shop, where the school is turned into a sort of Santa's workshop. Rock- ing horses, doll houses, teddy bears, buggies and scrap books are created or given a new face by the Parker family. And when the work is completed, the toys are sent to various settlement houses around Chicago. Stu- dents, teachers and parents participate and the whole school is united in the knowledge that they are doing something useful for someone else. AN EMBRYONIC DEMOCRACY Last of all, our school, the school which Col. Parker wished to be both a home and a community, strives to become also a democracy. Like our federal government, the school has incorporated in its principles the idea of basic freedom for all , freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right of initiative and referendum-free- dom, that is, but not license. The Parker student has a much more direct contact with his government than has the citizen of the Ll.S. with the federal. Perhaps a better analogy might be the United Nations-one large assembly for all mem- bers of the organization but the work is split up into various committees. ln Parker, these are the Social, Auditing, Budgeting, Library and Lunchroom commit- tees. Then there are, of course, the jobs of the various officers. ln other words, opportunity for participation is at its best at Parker and it is only up to the student to take advantage of it. Taking advantage of opportunity not only means running for an office or working on a committee, it means, too, taking a part in discussions with the fac- ulty about school problems. This is a very important part of Parker life and here, too, the smaller scale makes the democracy closer to the people themselves. When the students felt that they did not have enough control over their own finances, they went to the faculty and discussed it with them. As a result, we now have the student budgeting system in which all funds must be passed by a student committee and then the assembly before going to the various student bu- reaus while the records are kept by the student auditor. Probably one of the best remembered cases of student referendum in faculty decisions was in 1936 when the students became exasperated with the Two-inches- between-cheeks rule which the faculty enforced at all dances. When general protest and Weekly editorials brought no repeal of the law, the assembly voted to send a delegation to talk with the principal and some of the faculty. Says an alumnus who was one of the delegation: "Each class sent its bravest, noisiest, cheekiest mem- ber . . . Our injured oratory won a trial for cheek-to- cheek. No perceptible sag in student morals resulted." ln comparatively recent years, Parker students have found a much easier way of discussing their problems with the faculty. This innovation is the Committee of 4-a council composed of students and faculty. Almost all important decisions come before the committee and through their representatives, the students make their opinions heard. As the Parker, student looks around him, he is proud not only of the democratic form of his government, but of the whole atmosphere of Democracy which sur- rounds him. His friends are from all races, creeds and classes. Out of the 452 students, 168 are on full or part scholarships. This is one of the things that makes possible the establishing of this democratic atmosphere in which one third of the parents are jewish, a slightly larger percentage Protestant and the rest Roman Cath- olic, Russian Orthodox, Confucian or unaffiliated. ln nationality, they are American, Armenian, Austrian, Canadian, Chinese, Czecho-slovakian, Danish, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, japanese, Latvian, Mexican, Norwegian, Polish, Roumanian, Russian, Swedish and Swiss. And of these there are 68 doctors, 36 attorneys or judges, 32 teachers, 135 busi- nessmen of various kinds, 29 clerical workers and 9 laborers. One can see that there is something special about Parker when one realizes that so many people from so many backgrounds live together in this "home," learn together in this "community," and work together in the embryonic democracy", when one sees that from our little democracy, Parkerites have graduated into a larger democracy and taken their rightful places as intelligent and useful citizens. They have become doctors, lawyers, housewives, executives, club women, clergymen, teachers, scientists, salesmen, musicians, en- gineers, secretaries, mathematicians, newspaper col- umnists, architects, actors, editors, bankers, designers, artists, government workers of all kinds-even tax collectors. We may boast of quite a few well-known names among the list of alumni. Names such as Celeste Holme, Hollywood actress, Perry Dunlap Smith, North Shore CD., Elliott Dunlap Smith, president of Carnegie Tech, Mildred McAfee Horton, president of Wellesley College and one time head of the WAVES, is iff ff it R111 AX,---.-....,. Katherine Taylor, well-known educator, and Darlene Stern Ceis, authoress, who writes that in her book, Design for Ann, she used Parker as a background for her characters and called the school "Parsons," True, that for some individuals, life at Parker was simply a phase, the school itself just another institu- tion of learning. the country to many years in learned to love But to those who came from all over attend it, to those who have spent the circle of the Parker family and it, to those who have graduated and now look back on their days there with a certain, warm glow, to those people, what has Parker meant? Wfell, it has meant a way of life and of living, it has meant people and learning to live with them and to like them, it has meant an interest in everything from animal life through the arts, and a surer faith in hu- manity and the world.

Q Lei LQZLL MES 'W WS LATER hgh - dawg, 4 Q' Jllflal We hail the Seniors-Class of 1951, who, graduat- ing in june, will round out the first half-century of the school's existence! You, twenty-one boys and nineteen girls, furnish the latest examples of the school's fifty- year effort to educate growing children from nursery school to college age, through actual experience in an embryonic democracy, for happy, useful, and respon- sible citizenship. The Record with its pictures and sketches gives a fleeting impression of the school and of your fellow- students at the turn of the half century - student government, sports, art, publications, toy-shop and community service, dramatics, music, and morning ex- ercises. It can only hint at your steady growth as you have taken increasing responsibility, it can not measure your profound influence as leaders, advisers, and friends, nor evaluate the solid achievement already marked by scholarship awards from Trinity and Swarthmore, Kenyon, Princeton, Harvard, and Mil- waukee-Downer. But incomplete as your record is, it seems to us a good one. You also have asked us to supplement your review of the past fifty years with a few words of our own. We know that you, like your predecessors, are in gen- eral aware of having grown up in a school that is an educational laboratory. As Mildred McAfee Horton CParker '16J writes of herself, "Even a ninth grader could feel the stimulus of an experimental approach to education." For us the outstanding fact about the school is the succession of children, parents, faculty-even visiting teachers-who, like Mrs. Horton, have been moved by what she calls "participating in a program designed to test new ways of achieving age-old purposes," and who have gone on to influence education all over the world. Some of the results have been direct and immediate. More than ten influential schools were founded or headed by Parker graduates or members of Col. Parker's faculty. The Francis W. Parker School helped found the Progressive Education Association, and was one of the small group of schools that paid its initial costs. The Eight Year Experiment, generally regarded as the most important of the last fifty years in second- ary education, was also initiated by the Francis W. Parker School and a few others-and financed through its first year by Parker and three other schools. The National Registration Office, which furnishes six hun- dred colleges a basis for giving school records as much weight as examination scores, begun here and still has its main office on our mezzanine. Other current inno- vations are the Senior Symposium, Ccalled by one col- lege president "a brilliant answer to the problem of senior let-down at term-end"D, and the new experi- mental essay examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board, which our last two senior classes were the first in the country to take. The most important contributions of the school, however, are indirect on education and at long-range on the lives of graduates. You and we have for fifty years maintained in the heart of free America a school community in which people of both sexes, all ages, and the widest range of wealth, race, religion, national origin, and individual ability learn to work together and to respect and like people different ,from them- selves. In it, as another graduate CElliott Dunlap Smith, 'OSD writes: "Our teachers were constantly seeking better ways of helping each of us to grow and to acquire the power to keep on growing. We knew that we were being taught to observe and face our prob- lems realistically, but that in doing so we were incompletely realistic if we left out of our thinking spiritual values. Above all, we knew that we were being taught to think for ourselves without bowing submissively to indoctrination from our teachers or to the standards of our colleagues, but, on the other hand, that it was up to us to U think for ourselves with careful, well-ordered thought, aware of the importance of deriving our judgments from fundamental origins in thought and in spiritual experience? The school itself has freely shared all it learned with thousands of visitors and with the whole educational world. Its graduates have far and wide used their sympathetic understanding, their independence of judgment, and their disciplined intelligence in leader- ship for the public good. We think the achievement of the Class of 1951 already indicates, that you are taking your part in this great tradition. Congratulations, and welcome to the goodly fellowship of Parker graduates! -HERBERT W.

The graduation of the class of ,51 marks, as usual, both an end and the beginning of something inter- esting and important. But it is the beginning of something different in some respects from most years. It is worthwhile to see just what character- izes this particular transition, worthwhile for us of the class and for others. First, what characterizes our class? We felt, as the year began, traditionally disunited, and now feel traditionally much more of a group. We try to act mature, with not too much success. We worry about leadership and intelligence in individuals, although those who really excel in these would be hard to find. As a class we do class projects well and are quite good in dramatics. What are our achievements? We have given numerous plays, directed County Fair, and had three Lunchroom Heads from our class. We have gone on two rather wild weekends, on many equally wild excursions, contracted senior play neuroses. We will be, by our senior gift of instru- ments, among the founders of the school orchestra. These things may seem trivial years from now, or even now. But they are vastly important, for they came at an impressionable time for us, thus influencing us more perhaps than occupations, elections, or wars ever will in years to come. This is what makes our grade school and high school education so important. And now we face not only the jump between high school and col- lege but a change from a place of ease and secu- rity to one of uncertainty and pessimism with the shadow of another world war. This will put Parkeris preparation to the test rather thoroughly. But what Parker has given us cannot be put into words. It is not found in the rule book, or the reg- ister. It is something very intangible, which does not make it any the less real. It is something about the group, and the individual, but something not found in any of the school sayings. It is an ideal and a reality together, something to which we will never be able to tell just how much we owe, be- cause if has been part, and a large part, of our total environment, and cannot be separated from it. In the present .uncertainty and disorder Parker will always be a stabilizing element. The philos- ophy she gave us is one of liberalism, objectivity and tolerance, with a good touch of humor, and this will be one of the most important things in the world ahead.

With several of the high school com- mittees fnot to mention the "weekly"l being headed by members of our grade, our influence has been felt in all school matters. An enthusiasm has been shown by almost every member of the class in the extra-curricular activities. We proudly point out our own successful projects, the tea room and the Christ' mas dance. As for the academic side of school we may not be made up of Einsteins and Shaws, but when We put our minds to it, we manage to keep the neuroses of our teachers down to a minimum. Our latest escapade has been to take a Red Cross first aid course with the Sophomore class in connection with the civil defense program. Though our skill was not always extraordinary, we did have fun bandaging each other like Egyptian mummies. Perhaps the most lasting memory we will all have of our junior year will be that of Mr. Meyer, his thoughts for the day, and the moments when he paused in his disciplinary tactics in the front hall to say we could go out for lunch. Together, these things have made this year an unbeatable one for the junior class. ..52,, ,af Jr Robert Negranida Martha Oestreicher Pat Sawyier Ronald 5Cl'0PS Barbara Schroeder Natalie Schroeder David Shapiro William Stein Herber1S1einmeyer Judy Schrager Amy Schwartz Ping Tom Harold Arai Judith Belt Jorgen Brix David Cramer Muller Davis Thomas Frankel SOPIHICDMCDIRIES I guess the Sophomore class has done two things this year-work and more work. VVe got past our Freshman Final Exams and settled down to a steady pace for the year, with many a sigh of relief. Geometry was new to us this year and still will be at the end of the year. The second year languages were just twice as hard as the first year languages had been, although the teachers tried, bless iem. Especially Mr. Barnes, who, as our grade head, helped us throughout the whole year. Socially, we did our part. too. We produced the Turnabout, decorated the school at Christmas time and pitched in individually on all social activities The class, apart from the high school, put on quite a successful perform ance of rifygmaliom and had an all-day excursion to the dunes, a reminder of our Sth grade days. All things considered, we had a wonderful year and are really looking forward to next year when we will have attained fwe hopej the distinction of being juniors.

In September we arrived, healthy and brown, From all over the world, both country and town. Our teachers we met, both one and all, We learned how genial was the big front hall. We found the Belden a comfortable spot, One of our group likes his cold cokes hotl In October we started to fall into line, And assumed our places as Freshmen sublime. The Football dance was the big event, We really turned outg nearly all of us went. November was still a novel month, But we had learned to do homework at lunch. We had a class party -not our first, Some say 'twas our best, some say 'twas our worst. The biggest event of December, I'd say, Was the first of vacation. Oh happy day! The Alumnae Dance had some people there, Nearly everyone else was somewhere - elsewhere. In Ianuary it was school for us all, Back we came trooping, to our old ivied hall. Again we had a party, this time in costumeg How many people were costumed? just four in the room. In February we first learned of impending long themesg There went the end of our "happy, free dreamsf' We all got to work with "book'i and with "card" And racked our poor brains, ever so hard. March came in like a lion, as the prophets foretold, And the slap-happy freshmen looked twenty years old. For long themes were due in "just another dayf' And while the sun shone, we werenit making hayl The Forum came up, and the turn-about later, Each boy in our grade became an alleged woman-hater.

We made houses like the Mesopotamians had, out of clay bricks, that we formed in molds and dried in the sun. Then we made a miniature desert scene with tents and palm trees on an oasis, and finally a life size tent for the classroom. Our last project has been the presentation of a puppet play based on the story of Ioseph. We Wrote our own play of the story, made the puppets out of paper mache, painted the scenery and made the puppet theatre. We gave another Morning Ex earlier in lanuary of folk dances and a play called "Snow-White and Rose Redf, Our excursions this year have been a visit to the Oriental Museum to see thc Egyptian and Syrian Exhibits, a trip to Melody Farm, and an all day picnic at the Bloukes.

STLIDE T GOVERNME "The meeting will now come to order-the secretary will read the minutesf' "Minutes of Student Government, 1950-51, twentieth century. The meeting was called to order in September by the president. NVider representation to committees, com- mittee by-laws, lunchroom penalties and prices, cheer- leading, new budget for the PRINTS. student representation to civilian defense, experimental elimination of zero hours and subsequent establishment of honor system, plus many other items have been discussed and passed on by the assembly. "Are there any additions or corrections? If not weill pro- ceed to the first item of business, the committee reports. "The committees of Student Government have func- tioned smoothly this year. Each committee has carried out the major points of the platforms on which the heads were elected. Never before has there been such a high quality of Morning Ex's, Dances, Gatheralls, issues of the three publications and sundaes sold in the lunchroom as this year's committees have presented to the student body. "There were excellent jobs done by some of the 'behind the scenes, committees. Also the Library has been enriched by several books, the auditing committee has kept the books in excellent order, the relief committee has pre- sented a variety of good movies for the pleasu1'e of every- one and the various representatives of the committee of four and Lower School Council, although not committees, deserve mention here for the good jobs they have done as does the secretary who has faithfully recorded all details, large and small. Respectfully submitted." "Next we have the by-laws of Student Government up for the approval of the assembly. "In order to find the purpose of Student Government let us break down that oft used phrase from the Constitution of Student Government, K. . . to do business in a demo- cratic way . . . ' and examine its integral parts. "A member learns to accept responsibility. It is in this word that the purpose of Student Government is demon- strated. This responsibility is not only the responsibility of carrying out a clearly defined job but also of delegating authority and abiding by this delegated authority, of por- tioning out money so its use will benefit everyone to the greatest degree, of taking an active part in the organiza- tion because this is a government of all the people and each person can add an important part to the whole, and of making a decision, not from personal impression but by viewing the case objectively, separating facts from fantasy and then acting upon the decision. It is in this that the value of Student Government is the greatest. "ls there a motion to accept these by-laws? They are so accepted. Meeting adjourned until Septemberf, M- Pepper Davis, President A boy puts up a notice: Student Council, full assembly. As the children go up the stairs, they grit their teeth in anticipation of a long drawn-out Morning Ex, telling about all the things Student Council was going to do, or has done, or will be doing. This year, we hope weyve made a little progress in removing the dullness. Student Council has amended its Constitution so that a full meeting could be called at any time, instead of the last Thursday in each month. Two skits based upon the Safety Patrol and the History of the Grounds were put on much to the-dismav of the actors who had rehearsed twice. ' Our full assemblies went quite smoothly, but our meetings in which the representatives alone Student Council Student Council participated have a lot to be ironed out. The best quality this year was the co-operation shown by all grade representatives who contributed regu- larly to the discussions. Our sub-committees have met frequently and have produced a good deal of success from their efforts. The three main commit- tees were the Morning Ex, the Lost and Found and the Student Government. QThe latter consist- ing of sending lower school members to Student Covernmentj A planned committee, assigned the duty of cleaning up the halls, is being discussed. The Safety Patrol has certainly had a bad winter to work in, and has done a wonderful job. We be- lieve Student Council has shown great improve- ment this year, and will continue to improve. if 1 'v Hope Rogers, Secretory PARKER PRINTS ISEATEDD-Beuhr, Ccitclnzoro, Strauss, Steele, Co-editors A.

As he turned I could see signs of tears creeping from the corners of his swollen eyes. He was well over six feet tall and well over two hundred pounds. The white towel on his head covered the short hair and the bald spot. His thick lips were half parted. Blood ran from his mouth. He stuck out his tongue and sucked the blood in. He knew well the salty taste of blood, sweat and now for the first time in sixteen years, tears.

This shifted the emphasis formerly placed on printing to the literary content which the editors felt was of primary importance. This also enabled the paper to initiate several journalistic activities, including the first annual Weekly-Record Weeklyg the setting up of a bulletin board for announcements and late newsg the staging of several morning exercises featuring prominent joumalistsg the publishing of a maximum number of issuesg and campaigning, often successfully, for various improvements around the school. VV e, the editors, feel that this has been an extremely profit- able year, and hope that those to follow will be aided by our work and experiences.

Qperation Happiness "Sing Out Sweet Land" There occur each year events which emphasize the lessons in good fellowship which are taught at Parker. These events are County Fair, Toy Shop and the Santa Claus Party. County Fair, the high spot of October, is a student-run carnival the aim of which is to raise funds for Toy Shop which is in December. Toy Shop is a student-parent affair in which Parkerites repair old toys and produce new ones for the settlement houses of Chicago. These two, County Fair, and Toy Shop, go hand-in-hand toward furthering both student co-operation and understanding of current social problems. Last, but not least, in Parker's long line of dispensations for happiness, comes the Santa Claus party, a senior affair for the benefit of the lower school. Each year at Christmas time, an eagerly awaited Saint Nick tumbles down the chimney to pass out popcorn balls to all. These three occasions give Parker students a wonderful chance to practice what is learned in the classrooms and aid in a noble cause, "Operation Happinessf' it ,x me K fr 'xv CSA 5 E2 +:ffifLs Lai: ...I ,.

Co-captains Fristrom and Friend discuss strategy with Coaches Negronida and Thomas Parker Parker Parker Parker Parker Parker The past season, though it may not have been successful as far as victories were concerned, was rewarding in that it taught us the importance of working together as a unit for a common goal. Early season leg injuries to Winnie McGill and Tonv VVeinrott put us off on, literally, the wrong foot, for no team can lose two good men and still play top ball. We lost our first three games to North Shore, Luther and then Latin, but as the season progressed the boys improved and we won two of our last four games.

The boys always played hard, sparked by the all- league performances of Bill Lowry and Ed Halperin, but it lnust he remembered that these boys did not play the gaines alone, the credit for our victories, and also our losses, inust be divided among the other eighteen players, for in football, especially, it is teamwork which wins games.
