HERE is an old saying, " Don't cross the bridge until you come
to it," but for the sake of school tradition we will have to
assume that we are on the other side of the bridge and looking
back at the shore whence we came, or shall we drift "to the Valley
of Let's Pretend on the beautiful River of Dreams?,' Q
Again, the Bible says, Hjudge not, that ye be not judged," but,
as you know, actions sometimes speak louder than words, and our
opinions of the Academy day-students are based upon the knowledge
of their ambitions or of their individual peculiarities. So hearken!
A glowing, open ire! A big arm chair before the fire, in which
is seated an old man, with two stalwart little fellows on his knees.
His words run something like this, "VVhy, boys, those were the good
old days of regular football. You didn't beg a man's pardon every
time you bumped into him, nor did you run back and help up any
fellow before you tackled the player with the ball." Now, we all
know that this is Schaeffer with plenty of the old-time "pep"
ln the ladies' gown department in one of Lancaster's most fashion-
able stores, the elite are being shown the many beautiful gowns by
the attractive sales women. Instantly one's eye is caught by a
striking figure, conspicuous in every detail of its attire, from the
pearl gray vest to the even lighter gray spats. Stauntering through
the aisles, he idly toys with a wisp of hair, supposedly representing
a mustache, on his upper lip. He is indeed a king of floor-walkers.
Smiling as he passes the groups of ladies, he yet reserves his very
nicest smile for "friend Mary," who is at this moment idle. She
watches his approach with beaming eyes and greets him thus: "Ah,
Mr. Brown, pretty classy garb you got on this morning!" Yes,
Bob is in love with his job and also with every girl in it. But the
firm ought to be warned that a lion among ladies is a most dreadful

surely was the same old boy that he was at 1' Prep," for he had pictures
of baseball players stuck up all around the wall. He began to ask
me questions about F. and M., and then drifted off to the good games
we used to have on the old fields in the rear of the Academy building.
He told me that Mark Leinbach had visited his stand the day before,
and that Mark was mak-

I began to stroll back toward my cottage, as it was drawing near
my time for dinner. On my way I often stopped to watch the large
waves rolling upon the beach and to watch the children playing.
I noticed a crowd of youngsters in particular, for they seemed to
be very much interested in something, and upon walking closer
whom did I find but my classmate, Line, playing with the children.
When he saw me he surely did open his eyes, for it had been a long
time since we had seen each other. He made me acquainted with
his little folks and then began to ask questions as to myself. He
then told me that he had inherited a fortune some time after leaving
the school and had been taking it easy ever since. He told me that
Odell had been appointed the personal adviser to the President of
the Aero Club. He also said that he had seen Lichty a few days
before along the beach, and that he was now an authority on "bug-
ology." We sat there talking till it had grown quite dark.
Then, all of a sudden, I heard a knocking at my door, only to wake
up and find Mr. Bard standing at my door telling me to stay awake

patriot, Ignace Paderew-
ski. It was rumored that
one day, while engaged in
a duet, the fair one who
accompanied him complemented him to such an extent that john
decided to let his hair grow long, a mark of every talented musician.
Should Uncle Sam ever be driven into a maelstrom of political strife
as were our friends, the Poles, we hope and pray that john, like his
predecessor, Ignace, may come forth and deliver our beloved country
from the Bolshevists. But when we last heard of john he was try-

After graduating from the School of Electrical Engineering at
Lehigh, Herr returned to his home at Strasburg. Herr's idea was
not only to do good in his town but to enlighten the whole world, so
he gave the world a new dictionary. Now his dictionary is not
like the rest of the dictionaries in use today, but is, as he calls it,
"The Common Sense Dictionary," with short and simple meanings.
For example, look up the word "automobile," He explains it thus:
From English ought to, and Latin moveo, If0 move-a vehicle which ought
to move but frequeiitly ca1i'i.
Yes, just as you thought, Atlee became a surgeon, but, having
always been partial to animals, he became a veterinary surgeon.
You can easily picture the small but efficient Doctor Atlee tending
