8 THE QUILL
you could have matinee dances after school.
If you each paid five cents or so, you could
have a teacher come to show those who do
not know how - and those who do - the
fundamentals and the newer steps in danc-
ing. This should be very helpful to those
who are somewhat shy and should give
everyone a better time at the Prom.
However, there are enough activities of-
fered by this school to afford every one of
you the opportunity to participate in the
work and fun of some one of our organiza-
tions if you have enough interest in the
school and in yourself to try out for them.
Why do you let a small percentage of the
students walk off with the fun and honor
which might belong to you if you wanted it
It is not only school spirit that I am asking
you to think of A you have all heard that
too often. I am asking you to think of
yourselves and of your social life when your
school days are finished.
HAVE THEY DIED IN VAIN?
The scene - a battlefield in northern
France on November ll, 1918. Overhead
is heard the dull drone of airplanes, below,
the roar of cannon, the shriek of shells, and
the crash of bombs.
Suddenly all is still. A few lingering
bursts of rifle fire are the only sound. A
whisper races along the trenches, "The
Armistice!" But this is merely hearsay. It
remains for a few quiet words spoken with
authority to make the men go wild with joy.
"The Armistice has been signed!" "The war
is over!" "All war is ended!" "Never again
will such a terrible thing happen!"
These men believed that they had fought
a war to end all wars. They believed in
giving and had been willing to give their
lives in order that a lasting peace might be
effected. Have they died in vain? The
answer might well be yes if we but take no-
tice of present-day events. The very Arm-
istice which was intended to be an everlast-
ing pact of peace, has already been shat-
tered by the greedy power-lust of nations.
In the eastern hemisphere, japan is war-
ring upon China because of one thing, a
thing that no treaty has been able to curb -
the desire for territory. Several citizens of
neutral countries have been killed, and it
is only by the most tactful diplomacy that
the mother countries of these citizens have
been restrained from avenging their death
In the opposite hemisphere, Germany
has nearly swallowed up Austria, and al-
though the country consumed does not
seem to mind, several other neighbors of
the aggressive country are feverishly arming
in anticipation of an attack upon their
Not long ago a European nation needed
more territory for her over-flowing popula-
tion. War was the answer, and a small
African country was subjected to her rule.
In "Flanders Field," Lieutenant john
"To you from failing hands we throw
The torchg be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep."
Have we broken faith with those who
died? I say we have. Was the dream of
these sixty-five million men who fought a
war to end all wars fulfilled? Read any
current article, newspaper, or magazine and
you will find the answer - no!
