After talking with several of the graduat- ing class I have, with their help, selected several improvements that we would like to see made in our present school life. The finest gift that the class of '38 could leave you undergraduates is the chance for a richer and fuller social and scholastic life than we have had. I do not mean to sug- gest that we have taken advantage of all the opportunities for self-improvement that have been offered us. We have not. But, now that it is too late, we are realizing that every student should try to develop to the uttermost all phases of his life here. First, I would like to suggest that you have more long assemblies. If possible, try to find some way to buy hymn books so that everyone can have One. You students should take a more active part in the assem- blies. There is no reason that I can think of why each home-room could not at some time during the year present its talent in musical or dramatic selections. We all can imagine the difiiculty in Finding speakers. Wouldn't that burden be lightened some- what by more frequent meetings of the pro- gram committee? Assemblies really should mean more than simply a way to shorten the first four periods ten or fifteen minutes. Also we should like to leave with you the chance for greater social growth. High school seems to nourish mental and physi- cal development and to neglect the social side. A plan has been suggested by which you could have "get-togethersn as separate classes or with one of the other classes. I do not think that our gymnasium is large enough to hold the entire four classes. Even after four years in school there are students, possibly in your own home room whom you do not know. With very little expense

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 badly enough? 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. -The Editor 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 by war, 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 domains. 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 McCrae says: "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! -Dexter Fowles, '38
