LESLIE B. SEELY, B.S., P.D.D.
AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. SEELY
Dorus B. IONES
E HAVE concluded that Dr.
Seely has no anti-interview com-
plex, else he could not have
received us in so gracious a manner, nor
have been so very understanding of just
what the "Young Interviewer simply
must find out."
Our quest was for biographical and
other materials, so of course the first
question had to do with his boyhood and
education and we learned that he was
born in Nanticoke County, Pennsyl-
vania. He spent his boyhood in the
country and graduated in 1897 from the
Bloomsberg State Normal School. After
teaching elsewhere for one year, he re-
turned to Bloomsburg to teach and pre-
pare for college. He graduated from
Haverford in 1902, after which he taught
for three years in a private school in
New York State. In 1906 he came to
Northeast High School, then the Manual
Training School, as teacher of Physics,
and in 1915 was transferred to German-
town as head of the Science Department,
which position he held until 1924, when
upon the death of Dr. Keller, he became
Principal of our school.
Dr. Seely was asked whether there
was any rule of conduct or maxim that
he felt had contributed to his success,
and replied that hard work and com-
mon sense are the most valuable factors
in the achievement of one's goal. He
said that one must not fancy that one
can do well in only one kind of work,
that the same perseverance and applica-
tion which we lend to the thing we enjoy
doing will guarantee our success if given
to any other line of work. The thing to
do is to conquer one difficult job, then
' When he was asked about his prefer-
ences in books and music, he said that
he mostenjoyed the reading of scientific
works, both physical and biological
and liked orchestral music. Dr. Seely
has learned the value of having some
hobbies far removed from his usual line of
work, and finds his favorite recreation in
gunning and fishing.
Our closing query was whether or not
he thought the young people of today
deserved to be called "Flaming Youth",
and we adored his vigorous negative to
this question. He said there was a
natural breakdown in conventions dur-
ing and after the war, when girls of
refined character who would never have
done it otherwise, sold poppies and
liberty bonds in public places. Let-
downs like these gradually led to others,
and there were some people who carried
it to extremes. Every generation has
had its own extremes of conduct, but
those of the present one have been more
noticeable because of the advent of the
war. As a group though, Dr. Seely
believes this younger generation is as
industrious and serious as any of the
older ones which have been so' highly
When she emerged from his ollice, the
interviewer felt she had been in contact
with a life pleasant in its wholesome-
ness, significant for its purposeful
achievement, inspiring in its ideals, and
with a lingering memory of a personality
--kindly, human and approachable.

HE standards of American education are practical and comprehensive, a fact
that may be demonstrated by the convention of young scholars who under-
went a competitive examination supervised by Thomas E. Edison a few
months ago. Those boys were required to answer a list of questions ranging from
physics to abstract sciences and ethics, and they made a creditable showing for
immature minds in a test prepared by mature intellects.
The ideal of education is a mind hospitable to all knowledge. It was said
by Isaac Newton that the sum of a man's education is the knowledge of his own
ignorance-or put in plain words, a man does not begin to grow mentally until he
realizes his own limitations.
Whatever might be the extent of formal schooling, education, like reputation,
is almost wholly self-made. A person might win the highest of academic honors,
and yet because he stores his knowledge like a miser, be uneducated. Another man
might have been denied schooling, but because of his will power and intelligence,
Everyone has within him the capacity to develop his faculties of learning, oi
money, of understanding and wisdom, and perhaps, most important of all, of will.
Faculties that the highbrows and lowbrows name differently, but which after all
may be summarized in one word-the soul.
The final test of any system of schooling is not what it gives to the student,
but what he takes from it. Teachers provide the mental tools, but only the student
can decide how he will use them.

until we no longer have them."
OW many students are there in this school who can honestly and sincerely
say that they have never crammed for an examination? Very few. How
many pay their class dues on time? Also very few. When homework is
assigned for a lesson a week in advance, when is that homework actually done?
Usually the night before it is to be handed in. These facts are true, if not logical.
For some reason or other, it seems to be more convenient to put things off and then
work hard at the last minute, than to do a little at a time and spread the work out
on the installment plan.
Each day in the year is our own, to do with it what we will. It is our servant,
to use to our best advantage. Why do we neglect the minutes and the hours, which
pass us by, never to return again? Is it laziness that causes such a detrimental
apathy on our part? Are we mentally blind not to see the advantages of a steady,
Not only in this school, but in other schools as well, it is quite noticeable that
the majority of the students just drift along in the lower classes, accepting home-
work and lessons as a necessary evil g until suddenly they wake up with a start to
realize that they are Seniors, and that they must work doubly hard to achieve a
high average and a record of which they can be proud. Would it not be much easier
to begin in the Freshman class and obtain a good foundation? '
In scholastic work as well as in other things momentum is a big factor. Those
who obtain a good start and keep up a steady pace are sure to win out when com-
peting against those who depend entirely on a sprint, or a series of sprints, to carry
Every year the college requirements become more strict, and every year it
becomes more and more necessary to have a good foundation in all your studies.
Those of you in the lower grades who will try hard now, and become well-grounded
in all your subjects will find the going much easier when you become Seniors and
must give more of your time to other activities. Start now and be prepared for
later on. Remember--" The .rfarf i.r half ilze race. "

IIDGDJINIHIEB JIUINIT IIRHEBJID
BY BENJAMIN KASSER
HE telephone rang.
"Hellol Yes, on the 'phone. What!
Is that so? O. K., I'll be right
Clark put down the receiver, and
walked over to the window. It was a
clear night, and the illuminated clock
across the street told him that the hour
was early, not yet two o'clock. He
nervously lit a cigarette and sat by the
window, impatiently watching the hands
in their slow march around the dial.
Many thoughts disturbed his mind.
With cigarette after cigarette he tried
to quiet his nerves. After fifteen minutes
he got up, entirely calm, and went out
into the corridor. He was now the head
of the Detective Bureau, since he had
just learned by telephone that the Chief
was dead, having been murdered in his
office at about half past twelve. Clark,
Assistant Chief, would now step into
the post, at double his present salary.
His impatient ring brought the dozing
elevator-boy to attention, and soon he
stood on the sidewalk calling a taxi-
cab, and still smoking.
When he reached headquarters he
was met by an excited group of news-
paper reporters, cameramen, and a few
policemen. After a few brief greetings
and explanations he was ushered into
the scene of tne murder. Uhg! It was
bloodier than he had expected it would
be. There lay the dead Chief, sprawled
in his swivel chair, a look of surprised
indignation on his face, no longer the
florid, jovial one that everyone was used
to seeing. He had been stabbed in the
breast, not once, but three times, one
of the wounds reaching the heart. It
must have been done quickly, and neatly,
for the Chief was surprisingly active
for one his age. The reason for stabbing
instead of shooting was plain. The
murderer was leaving no bullets 'for
wary criminologists to examine and
follow up. The window had flagrantly
been left open, and it could be seen that
the assassin had come across the lawn,
having dragged his feet along in order
to leave no foot prints on the grass or
soil. Clark took charge, heading the
investigation, and men were quickly
dispatched on errands of more or less
importance, in connection with the
crime, and Clark himself, after further
futile examination, went back to his hotel
and to bed.
He slept until late in the morning,
and after breakfast went to the oiiice,
this time not as a subordinate but' in
actual charge. Busily engaged in estab-
lishing himself, he almost forgot the
murder, the very cause of his promotion.
At one time during the morning, how-
ever, his eye fell on a stack of mail
addressed to the "Chief of the Detective
Bureau." He picked up the letters and
looked over them. Most of them had
either "frank" notices on them or
permits, but as soon as he saw the red
two-cent stamp he startled guiltily, and
thought of the murder-a bloody one
too, he remembered. By lunch time,
however, his mind was at ease again and
he complacently ordered a fable-d'h6tc
dinner at his restaurant, without looking
at the menu, depending on the usually
good quality of the meals served there.
He began amiably enough, but when
tomato soup was brought, he blanched
slightly, but ate it. The red color of the
'beets was his downfall, and he hurriedly
paid his check and left without waiting
for the dessert of strawberries, and a
pitcher of cream. Everything red seemed
to draw his vision. Red, red, redl Red
dresses, red neckties, red automobiles, a
sheet of red tissue paper blown into his
face, " Nickel feracuppa cawffee?" from
a red-faced vagabond with a red bandana
around his neck, red, red, more red!
Back in his office sat his secretary with a
red dress and writing in a notebook with
a red fibre cover. He checked and ap-
proved reports with a red pencil, and
so on for a week, day after day, bloody
red. He grew pale and thin from worry 3
he hardly ate, could not sleep, startled
at every sound.
The murderer remained undiscovered,
and the coroner's jury was quite ready
to give its verdict that the Chief had
been murdered,-by person or persons
unknown as yet. Most of the witnesses
had testified and all was running
smoothly until Clark himself was called
on to tell what he knew of the affair.
As he approached the box he tripped
over the outstretched limb of a long-
legged newspaper reporter. He tried
to stop his fall, but in so doing, his
outflung arm upset a bottle of red ink.
When he had recovered, he stood gazing
with horror at the stains on the floor
and on his hand. A deep silence fell
over the room and the tense atmosphere
seemed to indicate that something was
about to happen. It did.
After a period of painful silence, Clark
stumbled rather than walked over to the
nearest chair, and with a groan, dropped
into it, hiding his face in his hands,
stained as they were. He then began
to speak in quivering monotone, every
word low but distinct.
"I did itl That night, when I knew
he would be alone, I climbed into the
office and stabbed him. I wanted the
job and I knew I was next in line for
promotion. I killed him. I-I didn't
think it would be so bloodyl After
leaving the oHice I walked back to my
hotel and climbed the stairs instead of
taking the elevator. I had just gotten
into my room when the call from head-
quarters came. I stayed in my room
for as long a time as I thought it might
take to dress, and then I came to the office.
That's all there is to it. It was awful!"
He shuddered. "So much bloodln
'THB HARVEST MOON
ANNA MAE MYERS
HE golden moon of late August
gazed with a mellow countenance
upon a vista unfolding beneath his
shining glance. In the limpid flowing
beams, the scene had almost the bril-
liance of daylight. Leaves which were
red and chestnut hued, appeared as if
heavy with yellow metal and rustled in
the fitful rousings of the wind. Soon
there would be no golden leaves to
dance in the soothing breeze, but the
wind from the Canadas would produce
mournful wailings in the bare forest.
A shallow brook gurgled at the feet of
the two who had come to this lovely,
lonely place to be together. These two
were Puritan lovers, betrothed to each
other, and to be married before the
following Spring duly arrived. With
the bursting of the first buds of this
fairy season, Captain Miles Standish,
beloved protector and defender of the
little band of brave hearts at Plymouth,
was to read the vows that would bind
Iohn Quarles and Faith Winthrop for-
ever. Iohn Quarles was one of Captain
Standish's trusted soldiers and co-de-
fender of the small fort against the
numerous assaults of the dreaded Shaw-
anese and their murderous cunning.
There was an anxious look in the face
of this tall upright youth. Care had
made its mark on the countenances of
all the colonists. Now he gazed lovingly
at his betrothed as he spoke, "Verily,
Faith, am I hopeful that the Shawanese
have accepted the treaty with its liberal
terms and that we will have little
trouble, if any."
"One cannot be certain, Iohn, since
thou knowest how cunning the red men
are, although their lack of powder and
fire arms may discourage them in their
cruelty." Faith spoke in a brave,
tired tone. Then, as an after-thought,
"Hast yet received thy commission from
Captain Standish, Ionn?"
The young man nodded his head in
assent and answered, "That is the reason
wlry I wished to speak with thee, Faith,
I have received it and start the day
following the Sabbath to relieve those
others . . . I am to plan for the safety
of our chief base of supplies. There be
few who know the location of this place.
My child, I may not see thee alone for
several months and I want the most
of the remaining time with thee." The
soldier clasped the Puritan maiden to
his heart and neither of them heard a
very faint rustling which was not caused
by the Autumn breeze nor saw another
sight which the yellow moon revealed.
An Indian scout resplendent in war paint
withdrew from his crouched attitude and
noiselessly glided through the thick forest
after he had heard the intelligence
which had passed between Iohn Quarles
and Faith Winthrop.
The day which remained before John
Quarles left on his mission, dawned
with clear skies and a smiling sun.
Leaving the group of Puritan maidens
with whom she had been conversing in a
serious mood which befitted the Sabbath
day, Faith joined her aged father. With
demure step, she led him to the fort
which, in these times of strife and con-
tinual warfare with the Indians, served
for a meeting-place where the Puritans
could worship God with the freedom
for which they had striven.
The loveliness of the Autumn WHS
eclipsed by the sweet face of the girl.
She wore a dainty French calico gown
which was the downy and soft-looking
gray which is so charming and which is
always associated with these silent folk.
Her throat was as white as the lawn
neckerchief which was across her
shoulders, while her mantle of gray and
woolen mittens completed the costume.
Father and daughter were joined by
Iohn Quarles and after the morning
greeting he had fallen into step with his
friend and his betrothed. Over his
shoulder he had slung a rifle which was no
more forgotten than the psalm book
which all three carried. On entering
the meeting house the two men pro-
ceeded to the left and Faith entered her
pew on the right as was the usual custom.
In the Puritan house of worship the
pews on one side were for men and on
the other for women.
The aged minister began the sermon
solemnly uttering the words, "O give
thanks unto the Lord, for He is goodg
for His mercy endureth for ever."
After which the Puritans raised their
voices in the words of Sternhold's
"The Lord descended from above
and bow'd the heavens hye
And underneath his feete he cast
the darkness of the skye.
"On Cherubs and on cherubims
full royally he road
And on the winges of all the windes
came flying all abroad."
After the service was over Faith and
Iohn conducted the older man to his
cabin. Iohn made plans with the maiden
for a last meeting, before he should
leave, to bid her farewell.
YVhen the day wore on and before the
sun sank Faith was to meet her lover
at the place where she had spoken with
him the evening before. When she
arrived she was strangely fearful because
Iohn was nowhere to be seen. She re-
traced her steps and suddenly was
confronted by a tall Indian warrior.
At first she thought him one of the
friendly Shawanese and gave him the
sign of greeting. The Indian was a
superb specimen of the red man. His
splendid body was oiled, shining with
yellow and white paint. His haughty
face seemed to disdain even looking
at the white woman. He spoke in a
guttural but very musical voice and said
in broken English, "Pale face come with
Massosoit. Go where pale face soldier
is. He askyou come."
Instantly the thought leaped into
Faith's mind that Iohn had been hurt
and had sent this particular Indian for
her. The tall warrior strode forward
and Faith darted after him plying him
with questions. He only shook his head
and pointed before them in the direction
of John Quarles' cabin. With a lithe
step he set off and Faith followed. She
did not see the look of cunning and evil
which flitted over the Indian's face.
The two had gone a short distance
when the savage turned and pointed
ahead. They stopped and Faith gazed
where he pointed, but, seeing nothing,
turned to ask the meaning and her face
paled with terror. The Indian was
approaching her and the savage look in
his eye was plain to see. He picked
her up and with the noiseless step of the
savage entered the forest in the opposite
direction. He traveled three miles in
this fashion, holding her in an iron
grasp and at last reached the settlement
of his tribe. She was placed in the hands
of one of the older women of the tribe
who took her to a spacious Wigwam.
The maiden, was nearly fainting with
terror but nevertheless endeavored to
find out the meaning of her capture.
The Indian woman only shook her head
and rudely thrust the girl away. As
the day wore on the squaw brought her
some food in an earthen vessel. Although
sick with terror, the Puritan girl at-
tempted to swallow some of the course
food. Finally long shadows swept across
the floor of the rude dwelling and the
sound of some sort of an arrival was
carried to the ears of the maiden.
The doorway was filled by the figure
of an old Indian having the bearings
and dress of a chief. He advanced into
the middle of the room and behind him
The latter had a defiant look on his
face which changed to one of conster-
nation when he saw Faith Nvinthrop. He
rushed forward and, Faith, at the same
time, started toward him. She then saw
that his hands were tied behind his back
and he looked as if he had been in a
fierce struggle, as his clothes were torn
and there was a bruise upon his head.
The Indian muttered something, left
the room, and then Faith learned the
John Quarles had been surprised when
he was on his way to meet Faith. Three
Indians had come upon him unawares.
A struggle ensued which was ended
when one of the savages dealt him a
blow upon the head. These Indians had
demanded the knowledge of the location
of the ammunition and arms which
the colonists depended upon for their
safety that winter. Faith had undoubt-
edly been captured so that Quarles
would consent to tell these unscrupulous
rascals where the stores could be found.
The two were interrupted by the re-
appearance of the chieftan. He strode
into the room and saw by the look upon
the maiden's face that she knew the
reason of the capture.
Iohn Quarles was taken away again
after he had reassured Faith that help
would arrive in time. When he had left,
the woman who had guarded Faith
before came and stationed herself out-
side of the lodge. It was not long be-
fore the squaw began to nod and she
soon slept. Meanwhile, Faith had exam-
ined her prison and tired to think of a
possible means of escape. She suddenly
perceived a small 'opening near the floor
of the wigwam which was large enough
for only a slight person such as she to
worm her way out. She knelt down
and managed to slip through. The girl
hesitated and then advanced out a little
way. The wigwam in which she had
been held prisoner proved to be a little
distance from the rest of the village
and quite near the surrounding forest.
Under cover of tHe darkness Faith
crept forward in order to gain more
knowledge of the place wherein she had
been quartered and its surroundings.
She noticed small camp fires here and
there and some distance away perceived
a larger fire in a clearing. The thought
entered her mind that it might be a
council which had gathered to discuss
the fate of her lover and herself. Ap-
proaching nearer Faith discovered a
tent guarded by an armed sentry. Under
cover of the trees the girl proceeded
to the rear of the tent and saw a huge
whet-stone which the tribe used for
sharpening their weapons. Near it she
found a discarded tomahawk and thank-
fully grasped it.
The noise of the Indians outside
prevented them from hearing the sound
caused by slitting the tent with the
weapon. She crawled through and Iohn
gasped slightly when he saw her. Quickly
Faith undid the fastenings on his wrists
and ankles. Drawing into the shadows
so that the scout outside could not see
them he made a curious soundl Im-
mediately the Indian entered and with
a strong arm Iohn Quarles let the
tomahawk fall upon the head of the
brave. He slid to the ground without
Together they vanished through the
wigwam as she had entered.
Ik Ik Pk
Eventually came the war with these
tribes, but due to the presence of the
needed powder which the agility of the
Puritan maid, Faith Winthrop, and the
subsequent actions of Iohn Quarles had
saved for the colonists, these same
colonists were victorious.
Another moon stares down on the
scenes of another Autumn. The Indians
have ceased their warring on their
brothers, since they have accepted a
treaty with the colonists. The harvest
was gathered and there was much re-
joicing when the bountiful supply was
stored for the approaching winter. There
was to be a week of thanksgiving for
the mercies of God. Wild game of
all kinds was shot, and extensive prepa-
rations were being made for this huge
feast. An invitation was sent forth
to the red man to come sit down and
join in the feast with his white brother.
Faith Vkfinthrop, now the wife of the
dauntless soldier, Iohn Quarles, was
busily preparing for this great feast.
She it was who kept up the spirits of
the other women during those trying
times of war and Indian massacre and
she looked forward to a happy fruitful

GJIUIHIUIE AJIRIVIIISGIIIITIIUEJIEB RUMOR
BY M. BERNARD BARR
HE most amazing thing about
rumors is the speed at which they
travel. One containing the smallest
grain of veracity would, with the
greatest speed, travel like fire from
regiment to regiment along the front.
One that contained little or no truth
would travel faster. The latter often
quickened the heart and raised hopes
that were soon shattered. Yet the World
War would have been a dull and drab
affair without the rumors, true or false.
Along the front flashed rumors of an
impending armistice, and sad to relate
one proved to be as false as another.
They gave hope and courage to our men
for the time being, but when the false-
hood of them was found, they brought
despair, anger, and torture.
Buddy and I had become accustomed
to listening to these little fairy tales,
and it so happened that we paid scant
attention to one more that morning
of November eleventh. A
The firing along the front had died
down slowly, and it seemed as if "the
steel-horned unicornsn had something
up their sleeves. Buddy and I walked
to the hospital hut, the shattered remains
of a once peaceful French farm-house.
Although the air of the hospital was
saturated with the odor of strong medi-
cines, it was like heaven to us who had
to endure, the terrible atmosphere of
the powder and the smoke. W'e had
become hardened to tl1e pitiful cases
of the hospital-hut, but there was one
that attracted our gaze that November
morn. Sitting in the corner and sup-
ported by the shell-shattered wall was
a soldier. His head was completely
covered with bandages and his arms were
supported in slings. He looked like a
strange mummy. A cigarette, half an
inch in length, protruded from the
confusion of bandages.
"Gee, that guy must be in terrible
shape," said my friend to me as the two
of us noticed his condition.
"Say, Iack, is there anything we can
do for you?"
The mummy cocked his head side-
wise to enable himself to see through
the slits of the swathes of bandages.
He managed to remove the cigarette
from his mouth and maneuvered it
before his eyes to observe its length.
"lWell," he replied slowly in a muffled
voice," I think I could use a cigarette."
Buddy attempted to give a short
laugh. "Sure, I'll roll one for you. "
He placed the cigarette in a place
among the jumbled bandages where he
supposed the wounded man's lips to be.
His guess proved correct. After a few
puffs to assure himself that it was ignited,
the mummy said to us, "'Well, it will
be over in a few hours. "
"Don't worry, Iack, I'll be back and
roll you another, " replied Buddy.
"No, I don't mean the cigarette, I
mean the war will be over. Yes, sir,
straight dope from the Doc. The
armistice will go into effect at eleven
o'clock, " announced our new friend.
We both smiled and thanked him for
the information. As we walked away,
Buddy said to me, "Poor fellow, band-
aged up like old King Tut and with both
arms tied up ain't enough for him.
He has to be a little off in the heavy-
"Well," I replied, "I wonder that I
haven't gone crazy over this war. By
the way, Buddy, do you think this war

on my life insurance to pay then, and I
certainly don't get enough from this
war business to pay it. "
'Wvhy are you worrying if the war
don't end by 1920?" asked Buddy
"YVhy, the longer the war the better
the chance of getting killed and beating
the life insurance company."
YVe both smiled-anything to keep
our spirits up. -
A little later, back in the trenches,
I happened to notice that something
was going on in the enemy's lines. It
seemed that they were collecting a large
number of guns into the front trenches.
Funny, though, they seemed not to mind
letting us see them at the task and made
no efforts to conceal their movements.
Buddy happened to see this act about
the same time I did. He looked at me
questionably. YVe both peered over the
top again. My pal touched me on the
shoulder and said quietly, "Listen, YVill,
I'll go over the top and stop the business
with a small hand bomb. Now, wait
'til I return. Don't tell the chief I'm
I looked at him and asked, "NVhat do
"Exactly what I said," he replied.
"Oh, don't be foolish. They are
probably collecting them so as to send
them back, " I said.
"Oh, no, they aren't. Uncle Sam
has been treating them rough lately
and they are trying to get even with a
quick attack, " Buddy corrected.
I tried to stop him, but his determined
spirit could not easily be broken.
"There's that rumor 'bout the armis-
tice," I yelled back at him, "and it
would be a pity to get killed just before
"Ah, tell it to Sue, she likes rumors,"
he responded as he crawled over the
top out of sight.
I waited restlessly in the trench for
the friend the war had made for me.
One good thing about the war was that
it made' comrades for fellows. Sue, our
mascot, a large white bull dog, came
sniflling up to me as if to ask what the
trouble was. If she had had a tail,
no doubt she would have wagged it.
I have often wondered why I let Buddy
go, and each time I curse myself. A
messenger came running to me, "Bill,
good news, yep the arm-by the way
where's Buddy-he was just with you?"
He seemed to have scented the truth.
"Quick, quick," he yelled at me,
"call him back. The Armistice goes into
effect at eleven. Get him before he
Bewildered I jumped up and stuck
my head over the top. "Buddy, Buddy,

I didn't finish. I couldn't finish. My
voice choked in my throat, for there was
the lifeless form of Buddy, hanging
limp over some charged barbed wiring-
dead from the shock of electricity.
Of all the rumors of the coming
armistice, this one had to be true.

we were kidsj He was the same
cheerful talkative fellow that had gone
gaily "0ver There" in the spirit of

after the Armistice, and naturally the

The hunter goes out to spend a lovely,
balmy, peaceful day, banging away at
ducks. Quite unexpectedly the weather
gets damp and then nice and squooozzzy.
After about half an hour of this, the old
boy gets fretful and pulls out his pipe,
only to find that his fuel is like soup.
While remarking how much this pleases
him, he does a tailspin into a batch of
especially gooey mud. After thanking
Ma Nature for catching him in her lap,
he goes about the business of loading
his gun and suddenly becomes aware
that one of those blank new-fangled
shells he bought at Shnossenbinger's

the works. This, of course, causes a

ACK HARVEY was happy, very
happy. At last he had perfected
the aeroplane of his dreams. He
had been trying to get a record-
breaking climber and at the present
moment was hugely enjoying himself
in one. He was eighty thousand feet up
in the air on just a trial trip. This was
forty thousand feet higher than any
plane had been flown until now. Yvhile
lack was having the time of his life
flying around in these high regions, he
became aware of a distant bright spot
that sparkled and glittered. His curi-
osity prompted him to drive his plane
towards it to discover what it was.
After driving for an hour or so, lack was
surprised at the tremendous size of this
object. A close scrutiny of it disclosed
that it was an enormous cloud. How-
ever, there was something queer about
this cloud. In the first place it was
entirely too high for a cloud. Secondly,
the cloud seemed to be composed of
jagged, diamond-like particles of ice
which glittered and gleamed in a very
delightful way. Ordinary clouds are
soft, fluffy, and billowy. This strange
cloud aroused an impulsive whim to
drive through it. So he drove into it
When he had become tired of riding
around in the cloud and had explored
what he thought to be most of it, Jack
decided that it was time to leave for
home. He immediately began to take
his bearings and to start back to earth.
To his surprise his compass was behaving
in an unaccountable manner. It was
pointing to each of the directions in turn
instead of to the north. Using it as
much as he could, which was not using
it at all, he tried to get out of the cloud.
After an hour of futile attempts he
finally realized that he was lost in the
cloud. Furthermore, the supply of gas-
oline was rapidly diminishing.
His motor soon began to cough and
sputter. It stopped all of a sudden and
the plane began to fall. His speed in-
creased rapidly and in hardly any time
at all, the plane was rushing downward
at a terrific pace. YVhen he had just
about given up hope of getting control
of the plane, the earth burst upon his
vision. It required all his efforts and
skill to get control of the plane but he
did it and barely managed to bring
the plane out of a tailspin and make a
three-point landing on a large bush-
covered plain. After a few minutes of
rest from his strenuous experience,
lack became aware of a bitter, acrid
taste in his mouth and of a burning
sensation in his nose. NVondering what
it was, he opened the door of the cabin
plane to get a breath of air. Almost
immediately the sensations became
stronger. In a minute or two he found
out that it was the air that disturbed
him. Thinking nothing of it, he stepped
out of the plane to have a look at his
motor. He experienced the curious
feeling of stepping off into space and his
body seemed to feel extraordinarily light.
When he endeavored to step around to
the front of the plane, he was fifteen feet
beyond it before he knew it. This time
he made a very startling and disturbing
discovery. Instead of going one yard
at a step he traveled five.
With his mind in a turmoil, he tried
to forget these things, so he looked
around to take stock of his surroundings.
U THE CLIVEDEN p
Again lack was dismayed and unac-
countably disturbed by finding out that
the grass was a curious yellow color.
It's appearance was far different from
the ordinary grass, because at the top of
each blade a small leaflet grew. Looking
around once more he noticed that there
appeared to be no trees in the country.
As far as he could see there lay nothing
but bushes of a dead-looking, reddish
brown color. The land itself consisted
mostly of rocks of some sparkling and
glittering substance-probably mica. He
could see no sign of human habitation-
a fact which struck him as decidedly
By this time the sun had begun to go
down. In all of his thirty years of
experiences, Iack had never seen a sunset
that could compare with this one. It
seemed to be a vivid combination of the
Aurora Borealis, a western desert sunset,
and huge geysers of various vividly-
colored gases. It had a weird and
fantastic effect on the country around
him. The bushes seemed to writhe and
dance, the whole of the land seemed to be
shivering and shaking, and even the
rocks seemed to be living masses of stone
which crawled and twisted in all direc-
tions. All of the landscape was bathed
in a curious mixture of colors, of which
black soon began to predominate.
The coming of the darkness made
Iack realize that he would have to camp
there for the night, so he began to hunt
wood for a camp tire. This job was not
hard, because even if there were no
trees, there was plenty of brush. Yvhen
he had completed this task, he felt in his
pocket for a match. To his dismay he
had none. After about ten minutes of
utter dejection and confusion, he thought
of an old Indian method he had learned
when he was a boy. It was the bow and
drill methods. Using his shoe lace as a
bow string and two pieces of brush as
bow and drill he soon had his equipment
ready. After half an hours' tedious
work, he managed to get a spark, and by
careful nursing soon had a large camp-
Iackithen proceeded to make himself
as comfortable as possible. He relaxed
his tired muscles and lay flat on his
stomach watching the sparks rise and
soar upward. His attention was at-
tracted by a vivid, green spark which did
not move. It seemed strangely familiar
to lack but he could not place what it
resembled. Suddenly its identity burst
upon him like a bomb and left aboutthe
same effects behind it. XVith his mind
in chaos, he tried to consider his plight
in a sensible and calm manner. Out of
fuel and alone on a strange planet, for
the green spark was the earth he thought
he was on. His thoughts of his predica-
ment were suddenly and rudely inter-
rupted by a hair-raising sound on the
other side of the fire. His startled eyes
met a huge apparition bearing down
on him. Yvith a frightened gasp, lack
sprang from his resting place and
dashed madly away from the monster.
The fact that he was able to travel five
times as fast as he was accustomed to,
gave him an advantage over the beast.
In spite of this he was compelled to turn
and twist to escape this menace. After
several close shaves, his muscles began
to tire. NVas there no escape? Yes,
there wasl Before him a wide chasm
yawned. He ran to the very edge and
gave a tremendous leap. After what
seemed to be endless minutes he landed
on the other side with a painful jar. All
during the next five minutes Iack was
getting his breath back and congratulat-
ing himself on his lucky escape. Hardly
had he done this when he was menaced
by another monster.
During the next four hours he was
compelled to flee from five of these
terrifying creatures but he always came
through unharmed. Iack finally found a
haven of refuge on top of a large mass of
rocks. He was perched there for several
hours and was becoming sleepy when a
faint humming noise aroused him from
his lethargy. lxlaybe it was a rescue
plane. No, it could not bel Looking
upward, another danger confronted him.
Coming down at him was a huge,
ferocious looking bird of the prehistoric
type. Down off the rocks came Iack
and away he went at full speed. This
time the shoe was on the other foot.
The bird had the advantage. Iack ran
darting and swerving like a mouse try-
ing to avoid an owl. Still the bird
gained. Would he escape this time?
It looked like it. There was another
chasm, smaller than the first, and on the
other side was a dark hole, probably a
cave. The bird was closer now than
ever. Looking back in desperation,
lack strove to go faster. Only about
three hundred yards to the chasm now.
The bird's beak then snapped about two
feet in back of his head. Frantically, he
increased his pace. He was in a state
of collapse. Once more he looked back
to see if he had gained any. At that
moment his foot hit a rock. lack went
head over heels. He rolled over and
over. Abruptly he was out in space
falling down, down, down. He brought
up with a sudden, sickening jar. Was
this heaven? Breathing painfully, he
opened his eyes. A huge shape was
swooping down on him. An awful
shock-and then everything grew darker

AVE you ever wondered how you
can picture in your mind such
intangible perceptions as emo-
tions ot good and evil? Somehow, it
seems to me, when we wish to think of
these, we involuntarily personify par-
ticular emotions and visualize charac-
ters, actual or imaginary, whose face
seems to us expressive of those thoughts.
As soon as the thought of anger comes to
nie, a vivid picture glows in my imagina-
tion. I see a man, a powerful man with
mighty straining muscles. His hands
are clenched, taut, as though he were
about to bend a bar of strongest steel.
Nevertheless it is his face which is
clearest, largest, in my consciousness.
His lips are drawn back, snarling, and
revealing sharp white fangs and an
underjaw somewhat protruding. Eye-
brows lifted, veins swollen, eyes flashing,
all these characteristics go to make up
my personification of anger.
This is, of course, purely an imagina-
tive character. There is, on the other
hand, that character which is drawn
from life and which presents to us, a
perfect personification of an emotion.
It is with the latter that I am now going
to deal. Indelibly traced in my mind
is a character-my personification of
I was walking down a small street-
a narrow filthy street, in a section of the
slums seldom used by casual pedestrians
or vehicles. A shiver of fear and a
premonition of evil seemed to combine
and weigh on me. I hardly knew where
I was-just dimly aware that I was near
the corner of an intersecting street.
Another chill passed over me. Then
came an awareness, an intuition of some-
thing approaching-something very near
-and yet I could see nothing, so close
was the darkness. It was a weird and
creepy feeling-that awareness. Sud-
denly over my shoulder flashed a brilliant
white light and revealed to my staring
eyes-IT! It was, in all probability,
a man, but somehow I can not seem to
reconcile myself to that thought. It
seemed to me more like a vampire or
some such thing of evil. Because of
that I shall use the impersonal pronoun
to indicate it.
It was clothed in black-a scrawny,
stoop-shouldered thing-and wore a
black high hat. But its face I will
never forget. It was milky white, and
the light coming from a point lower
down, lit it up in a fashion ghastly and
terrible, leaving the shadows very black
and the illumina ted parts very wl ite.
Its lips seemed to be paralyzed into
a position, part driveling, part sneering,
and revealed an occasional yellow fang.
Its eyes were fearful. One was a big,
round, staring blue, the other small black
and squinting. . But it was its nose that
made it so revolting. It was entirely
missing and a livid dent and two black
holes, the nostrils, were the only signs
to mark the place where it had been.
Oh, the horror of it all! Oh, the ghastly,
nauseatin g horror! It was so close when

QIIFHIIIEB FESTIVAL GDR? GIHIHIIE- NIGHT
FLORENCE B. SILBER
Night steals upon an unsuspecting
world. Birdlings sleep in their feathered
nests. The purple shadows deepen-
the silence becomes more acute. At
last! The world is at rest.
The tranquility L the peace - the
beauty. The babbling brook plays an
accompaniment to the rustling of the
leaves. Higher and higher climbs the
moon. Her shimmering shadow on the
gurgling brook is a beauty to behold!
The tiny pebbles become living things
-the gurgling a real song. Humanity is
asleep-and now nature awakes. The
inanimate objects become tiny elfin
creatures. The trees sway and dip to
music so sad and sweet. Tiny legs
scamper amid the green foliage of the
forests-all nature is at play.
The moon sinks lower and lower and
softer is the music-more slowly the
trees sway-fainter the scamper of elfin
feet. The dawn-cold and gray. Then
the sun-beautiful-glorious - tints of
gold and rose ornament the sky-deeper
and deeper they become-forming a
frame for the golden sun which slowly
slides up into its casing.

Our holiday was first celebrated in
this country with a harvest festival
which lasted a week. This first Thanks-
giving was not a religious ceremony,
and no services were held other than the
morning prayers and Sabbath worship.
There was given a great three-day feast
of wild turkeys, geese, ducks and water
fowl, of codtish, clams and oysters, of
barley loaves and Cornbread, of salads,
fruits and pastries. Then for fear there
would not be enough, tive Indians were
sent out and they brought back five
deer. There were about a hundred and
forty persons, including ninety braves
of Massasoit's company, who all had
their share of supplies brought to them
by the girls whose duty it was to keep
the plates filled to overflowing. Between
these meals, contests and games such
as "pitching ye barren and Hstoole-ball"
were held, and a grand hunt of the four
prime shots who received the honor
from the governor himself.
This harvest festival was an inspira-
tion to the New World citizens, which
reanimated their spirits, drooping from
previous failures of crops and other
hardships. When the holiday was over

they were better and braver men for
having turned aside from their labors to
However, the idea of a special day of
thanks and feasting does not belong to
America. This dates back to olden
times in Greece, Rome and Early
England. In Greece the harvest festival,
called the Tlzewmaphoria, was the feast
of Demeter, goddess of the soil and
harvests, and was celebrated in Athens
by the housewives only. The Grecians
chose two noblewomen to perform the
sacred rites and tq prepare the feast.
On the first day of the feast, which sug-
gests our Thanksgiving dinner, the
women went in a colorful procession to
the cliff of Colias where the temple of
Demeter was, and celebrated their
Thanksgiving for three days. Follow-
ing this was a three-day feast in Athens,
which started sadly at first, but generally
ended in a perfect riot of mirth and danc-
ing. The symbols of the fruitful goddess
were poppies, corn, fruit and a pig, while
the symbols for our Thanksgiving seem
to be a turkey and pumpkin pie.
In Rome the goddess of the harvest
was Ceres, and her festival, which occurs
yearly on October fourth, was called the
Cerelia. The word "cereals" or grains is
derived from this. The holiday began
with a fast among the common people
who gave an offering of a sow and the
first of the harvest to the goddess, and
followed this by fantastic parades around
the fields and rustic sports. The cere-
monies ended with the usual Thanks-

AJ .seen by .Marjorie Erdman and told to Benjamin Kamer
ROM the other end of the earth,
from that little peninsula off
Manchuria, a land of lotus and
of mud, of ancient civilization and of
Ford cars, comes Marjoire Erdman.
lV1arjorie's parents were missionaries
and she was born in Korea in the midst
of all and lived there for twelve years.
Then, because of the ill health of her
parents, the family came to this country.
As is the case with many people who
have seen interesting things, her store
of memories is abundant, and is more a
collection of vivid impressions than a
chronological list of facts.
As Majorie loosened her flow of remi-
niscences, we tightened our belt, got out
our pencil and note book, and tried to
record for you the facts as she presented
them. XVe hope we have in a measure,
succeeded. First, however, let us refer
to our Atlas.
Korea is situated at about one hun-
dred and twenty-seven degrees longi-
tude east of Greenwich, and at the same
latitude as Philadelphia--the fortieth
parallel. Its surface is very moun-
tainous, and the climate is extremely
cold in the winter. The summers, on
the contrary, are very hot, except where
modified by the proximity of the ocean.
The Yellow Sea and the Iapan Sea hem
the peninsual in on both sides, and off
to the west lie the islands that make up
the Empire of Japan.
Korean civilization is known to have
existed twelve centuries B. C. The
country was conquered by China in
1122 B. C., and since then it has been
constantly changing hands. In 1895,
Korea was declared independent. Later,
her government was taken over by
Iapan. In 1910 a Iapanese Governor-
General was installed, and the name of
the country was changed from Korea to
Chosen. Since then, there has been
progress on every hand. The population
in 1921 was 17,288,989, and is fast
growing, but not too much in proportion
to her progress in other lines.
That, I think, is a fair summary of all
the figures, and will set the stage for
what Marjorie has to say.
Marjorie is easy to interview. We
did not know how to begin exactly, so
all we did was to say a word or two here
and there, and after that, we had to
write down what she said.' The first
thing we mentioned was, of course, the
subject closest to us.
"Education?" began Majorie, "YVell,
the main item in the education of the
Korean used to be the teaching of
Chinese characters. The man with the
greatest knowledge of Chinese charac-
ters was considered the most educated.
Some of the men achieve great pro-
ficiency in this, and these men were the
cream of Korean culture. Now, how-
ever, the foreigners have introduced
the English language, mathematics, his-
tory, and the like.
"The foreign children are given the
regular American type of education at
the school in Pyeng Yang. There is a
foreign dormitory here for the boys and
girls of missionaries and business men.
This is the only foreign dormitory in
Korea. There are about one hundred
and seven children in the foreign school.
The dormitory is filled to overflowing.
Plans are on foot to build a new one,
which will require several thousand
"The native houses have walls of
mud mixed with straw, and the roofs
are covered with thatch. The dwellings
are heated by building fires underneath
the floor. At night the natives sleep on
the floor, and thus keep warm. On
entering the house, they remove their

some nearby stream. The garments
are laid upon flat rocks and pounded

ironing them. The clothes are spread

YNe would say they talk 'backwards'.
In Korea you 'needle a thread' instead
of 'threading a needle'. Everything is
like that. . . f
"The native Koreans dress' in long,
white robes. The women wear a skirt
which is wrapped around the waist, and
a short jacket, either white or black.
The foreign people wear regular clothes,
the same as we wear here in America.
On holidays, the natives dress in many
bright colors. The whole picture is very
gay and carefree. One item of the
native dress on festal occasions is espe-
cially interesting. The people like red
and pink in contrast. They take strips
of cloth in these colors or in other gaudy
combinations, and sew the strips to-
gether and thus have a showy sleeve.
They also wear regular cotton or silk
cloth, printed in stripes and hues to suit,
and these make the feast times very
"Since Iapan took over Korea, her
mail service is nearly the same as that
over here. One thing is different, how-
ever, and that is the censoring of the
mail. Your letters are often read, and
the mail is not very prompt. Fre-
quently you' receive your letter in the
wrong envelope. Candies and other
delicacies that happen to be in parcels
are filched to satisfy the appetites of the
postal officials. There is a high tax on
all luxuries, and a duty of one hundred
per cent is not uncommon.
"Labor is very cheap in Korea, as in
the other Oriental countries. Many
regular commodities are unbelievably
inexpensive. A live spring chicken costs
twenty-five centsl Yes, twenty-five!
Eggs are bought by the string. They are
wrapped in long pieces of straw. The
main point in buying eggs is to test their
freshness. Eggs in Korea are rather

are wayside stands at which they sell
everything-candy and other delicacies.
We even find chewing gum copied from
America. Also, there are combs, pipes,
and shoes, oh, yes, and the shoes are
made of rubber.
"No, the streets in the city are not
paved as a rule. They are plain dirt, and
the roads are very muddy in rainy
weather. The sidewalk is usually sepa-
rated from the street proper by a cement
curb, though there is nothing but dirt
inside the curb.
"There are many stores-barber
shops, and a few jewelry shops, too.
In the city there are some big stores.
Some of them keep open at night but
most of them close at six. In the stores
which handle clothing, they have more

"Yes, there are some theatres, where
they show moving- pictures, but we
never go unless they have a Douglas
Fairbanks picture or something else
very good. The Koreans are usually
downstairs and the foreigners upstairs.
In the movies, the natives all smoke and
drop ashes on the floor, which makes an
awful mess. fEditor's note: "The
Eternal womanluj They smoke cig-
arettes, but they also have pipes.
Some pipes are very odd. One kind is
about three feet long, with a tiny bowl
at the very tip.
"On the highways, the traffic is run
differently from ours. There, the traffic
is on the left side of the road. The
trolley cars run on the left too. It was
hard to get used to the way they do it
here, on the right. Most of the traffic
consists of bull carts, water wagons, and
loads of hay. Yes, there are automo-
biles-chiefly Fords and Chevrolets.
There are a few of the more expensive
cars, too. '
"The trains are very filthy. The
natives smoke in the cars and every-
where. It's not very healthful. There
are three classes of travel, first, second,
and third. The Koreans travel third
class usually, as it, of course, is the
"Certainly, we have running water
and electric lights. Part of the city is
lighted by electricity, and a few of the
big stores have changing electric signs.
"Truly Korea is not to be taken
lightly. She has perhaps one of the
oldest civilizations in existence, and
though immersed in her old culture, she
is, by the grace of God, rapidly catching
up in the new civilization. The com-
mercial and missionary man from Amer-
ica are blazing the way. Korea must be
considered as important among coun-
tries of the world."

HE Suforpio is probably a rusty,
ill-conditioned freighter. To us
she looms immense-she is painted
over her rust-by unforgetable associa-
YVhit and I went aboard the Suforpfo
while she lay alongside the slip at Port
Newark, loading iron piping and ex-
plosive. VVe signed on as wipers, the
lowest of the Black Gang. The first
assistant engineer set us to work im-
mediately, stowing stores, helping repair
the circulating pump and scrubbing the
corrugated iron floorings of the engine
room with wire brushes and kerosene.
Early the next evening the longshoremen
cast us off and we put out of New York
harbor in the gathering dusk and a misty
For a few days the sea was quite calm.
V7e encountered several terrific squalls
in the night somewhere off Georgia.
The wind and spray were so strong that
we could not stand on the forward deck,
but found it necessary to crawl on hands
and knees with the aid of a line.
Our course brought us quite close
to a number of small islands of the
Bahamas. They presented beautiful
pictures with their brilliant green palms
and shining white beaches. Making the
VVindward Passage between Cuba and
Haiti at night, we entered a very choppy
Caribbean. The water was the deepest
We had been spending eight hours
every day scraping the tank tops. The
scraping of the tank tops is reputed
to be the meanest job afloat. Cramped
between the lowest engine room floor
and the bilge tanks, sweating in heat
at the least a hundred and thirty degrees,
tossed by the roll and pitch of the ship
upon the untouchable steam pipes,
crawling at full length in immentionable
filth and bilge water, in darkness, with
the literally deafening roar of the tur-
bines above us, we scraped from the
tanks the accumulated waste oils, paint
chippings, cigarettes butts, rust, tallow
YVe awoke one morning in Colon
harbor. Some twenty planes maneu-
vering over the bay, a couple of sub-
marines lying at anchor, the modern
white buildings of Colon, all seemed
incongruous surrounded by the jungle
covered volcanic hills of Panama. A
pilot and deck crew of darkies came
aboard and we started the passage of the
Canal. The intense heat necessitated
our staying on deck all day to trim the
ventilators. As the boatapproached the
Gatun Locks, a few small banana planta-
tions were seen lining the low shores. At
Gatun the ship was lifted eighty five
feet to the lake. The shores of Gatun
Lake are tangled to the water edge
with rank tropical growth. Occasionally
there is a tiny ellowing with its grass
roofed hut and its dugout canoes. Be-
yond the matted vegetation on the
banks, distant ranges of hills stick
needle points up into the sky. From the
lake, we passed into the canal itself,
through the Culebra Cut, a great raw
gash through a hill of rock, and finally
in the Pedro Iniguel Locks, to be lowered.
Around the last set of locks, the miro-
flores, are a number of palatial residences
and a country club, with fountains,
but even here white men seem peculiarly
out of place.
Due to favorable currents, we kept
very close to the shores of Costa Rica,
Nicaragua, Salvador, Guatemala, and
Mexico. On these coasts the mountains
rise directly out of the Pacific and stretch
range upon range into the hazy blue
distance. They are covered with dense
tropical forests. The thermol equator
follows that close line. Engine room
temperature was often a hundred and
The crew were a peculiar conglomera-
tion. The cook had played football

Dutchman to the easy-going Carolinian,
they were a hard swearing, hard drink-
ing crew, but surprisingly decent to
VVe had seen a number of schools of
porpoises and many flying fish skimming
the waves. The sight of a gull, sitting
on the back of a sea turtle, was as
amusing as the antics of the sea lions
The precipitious shores of Lower
California were unimaginably desolate.
Nlountains of red rock and clay, barren
of any life, towered up out of a sea

A month out of Port Newark, we put
into San Pedro, in California. Yvhit and
I took a day off and went up to Los
Angeles and then to Hollywood. The
great studios, the palm shaded streets,
and the like, were rather interesting.
Yve went to Long Beach. On the way
we were impressed by the obvious
aridity of the country, the prevalence of
Mexican settlements, and by a forest
of oil wells covering sand hills stretching
forty miles and more. Popcorn and
swimming suits abound in Long Beach.
The next day the Sulorpio sailed for
San Francisco. Shortly the refrigerating
machinery broke down. Stifling am-
monia fumes made the engine room un-
bearable. YVe were forced to work in
gas masks. The extreme heat added
to the inconvenience. YVe drove her
into Frisco. After docking late at night,
W'hit and I saw a bit of Chinatown,
a bit of the section that had been the
"Barbary'Coast," and quite a bit of the
central districts of the city. YVe railed
later across the bay to Oakland.
But through the Golden Gate again,
we paralleled a fog-shrouded coast up to
YVillipa harbor, in VVashington. The
stevedores loaded lumber at the primi-
tive sawmill tower, which the great
pine forests all but crowd into the
river. The roads are, for the most part
of unfinished logs. With the assistance
of the honest-to-goodness lumberjacks,
almost the entire crew managed very
efficiently to get themselves drunk. Whit
and I went swimming off a log boom
in the icy river and hiked far into the
Heading south again we went a couple
of hundred miles up the Columbia River,
past salmon rivers and logging operations
to Vancouver, Wlash. The pinion gear
on the turbine had to be repaired. Whit
and I worked steadily for twenty-four
hours and more, pulling on chain falls,
swinging "Mondays," replacing gaskets
and bushings. W'e went to Portland.
From Portland a day off took us out the
Columbia River Highway. Water falls,
immense panoramas of pine-covered
mountains, snow-capped peaks, en-
hanced the beauty of the river valley.
The twin lumber cities of Aberdeen
and Hoquian were our next ports. Whit
and I went to Seattle one week-end,
seeing Mount Rainier and very nearly
everything of interest. In Seattle we
lived well, and by the time we set out
for the ship, our capital was negligible.
We did reach Aberdeen and were out-
ward bound within several days with a
load of lumber piled ten feet above decks.

After touching at San Pedro for fuel,
Yvhit became an oiler, superior to a wiper
as regards salary and social standing.
Some where down ofi' Mexico I too, was
Un a jagged little rock heap of an
island coast, I saw the smoking cone of a
volcano. The entire crew had been
sleeping on deck due to the intense heat,
when, in the Gulf of Quihuantepec, a
real storm caught us.
The Suforpio entered the Bay of
Panama about two weeks out of San
Pedro. lVe passed Balboa early in the
morningg every buoy marking the
channel had a awkward-looking pelican
atop it. Again by that wonderfully
precise system, we were raised from the
Pacific to the level of the canal. On
entering Gatun Lake we saw several
big Crocodiles sprawled on the banks.
Our passage was delayed and we had to
lay at anchor for some time in the lake.
Several of us dove over the side and
swam around the ship for a while. The
darkies, meanwhile, had been dickering
with us over prices for souvenirs and
other things. I was taking bells during
the latter part of the transit and only
came of watch when we were well out of
sight of land.
In the Caribbean I caught a large sea
bird, a booby. The bird and Baldy, the
ship parrot, drastically disagreed. NVe
saw Cuba and Haiti and Iamaica only
as blue clouds on the horizon.
Ive were apparently in the vortex of
violent storms off Cape Hatteras. There
was an always continual supply of wind
bellowing from every quarter.
Several days later the Suiorpio fol-
lowed the low Iersey coast line into
Port Newark and there docked.
YVe had gained a bit of weight and
experience. The fun we had had was

LIFE AND LETTERS or EMILY DICKINSON
ECAUSE a half century has
passed since Emily Dickinson
tended her amaranthine bloom
and wrote her incomparable poetry:
I thought of her in an oval frame
Against sprigged wall-paper
Done in Fra Angelico pinks and blues
Of a clear and sprightly elegance."
But her letters delineate a personality
too vivid and intense for so trite a
disposal. They analize the colorful
fabric of feeling of which her concise
quatrains barely hint. Yet even to a
close friend the elusive element in her,
which won for her the name of recluse,
reveals itself in her baliling suggestion
"that even the broadest letter feels a
bandaged place." In spite of her dis-
paragement they form a medium for
Contact with her most intimate moods.
She describes herself as being "small
like a squirrel" with "eyes like the sherry
in the glass that the guest leaves". As
friends she claims "hills, and the sun-
down, and a dog large as myself,"
"because they know but do not tell."
"The Amherst heart is plain and whole,
and permanent and warm," and possibly
of a stolidity which failed to understand
its ineffable, reticent occupant since she
writes that "Nothing has happened
except loveliness, perhaps too daily to
relate." It was probably this solitude
that bred her consumate expression.
Something of a wistful child always
remained in her personality. In refer-
ence to the picture of one ina Greenaway
costume she writes "That is the little
girl I meant to be and wasn'tg the very
hat I meant to wear and didn't." A
solitary supper was not taken alone,
but with "the pictures of the Dresden
china." She relates with the exultance
of a small boy that "A circus passed the
house-still I feel the red in my mind
though the drums are out."
With astute understanding she de-
scribes her fallacies: "I have no monarch
in my life and cannot rule myself, and
when I try to organize, my little force
explodes and leaves me bare and
charred." The disillusion which so often
accompanies a turbulent temperament
.si 33 lb.
THE CLIVEDEN I
she c'assifies as "one of the few subjects
on which I am infidelf'
Her definitions are startling in their
originality: Of supplement she writes
"To multiply the harbors does not
reduce the seas"g of the- effect of the
Civil Yvar on her quiet New England
life "NV ar feels to me an oblique place".
She describes the compiled letters of a
contemporary as "a memoir of the sun,
when noon is gone". Her sensitiveness
is displayed in "a spell cannot be tat-
tered and mended like a coat", her
affection in "to cherish you is intuitive".
In every capacity of her nature, love of
beauty is inherent. She sees sunrise as
"the light a sudden musket spills", a
geranium as "a red sultana", a mush-
room as -"a truffled hut", the sea "an
everywhere of silver with ropes of sand".
Like a delicate half tinting, her aspect
of death shadows her writing. "Life
is a spell so exquisite that everything
conspires to break it". Yet sustained
through every sentence of her letters
is the plea which characterizes her both
as poet and personality.
"Beauty crowa'.r me ti!! I die
Beauty mercy have on me
But ff I expire today
Let it be in .rzzglzt qf' thee".
THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF BENVENUTO
YVe read many autobiographies to get
a picture of the times in which the author
lived. In general, in such books, the
writer has subordinated himself to the
historic events in which he figures and
the important personages with whom he
came in contact. In his autobiography
however, Cellini has made himself the
central figure. Popes and kings, dukes
and generals, are introduced merely
to bear witness to the overwhelming
superiority of Messer Cellini in no matter
what capacity he found himself engaged.
He was born in Florence in 1500.
Although his father tried to make a
musician of him, his natural tendencies
led himt into other fields of artistic
endeavors. His fame rests upon his
works in gold, such as medals, coins, and
sculptured ornaments. He was asso-
ciated with some of the most famous
artists of the Renaissance including
Michel Angelo and Raphael. Although
these men figure largely in the story of
his life, no reference is made to any of
their accomplishments and their intro-
duction is solely as witnesses, testifying
to the excellence of his own work. As
an illustration, Cellini refers to an
incident of a wealthy Neapolitan who
wished to have a medal made for a young
lady with whom he was in love. The
Neapolitan applied to Michel Angelo
who answered, "Go and find a young
goldsmith named Benvenutog he will
serve you admirably and does not stand
in need of sketches by me. I will also
sketch you something and he can
execute the better of the two designs."
Cellini made a model in wax and says,
"When Michel Angelo saw it he praised
me to the skies." While Cellini fre-
quently testifies to his own ability, his
self-praise is usually accomplished by
the medium of well-known characters.
Often he paints his tasks as being
especially hard, so that his ultimate
success seems the more remarkable.
Cellini also pictures himself as a
swashbuckler. He relates how at the
age of sixteen he saved his brother in a
street brawl, defending 'himself by
"bearing the brunt of several rapiersf'
At a later age, during the sack of Rome,
he was assigned to artillery service and
"I took such pleasures in my duties
that I discharged them better than my
--all 34 Ixo-
own art." Further on he says, "Every
day I performed some extraordinary
feat, whereby the credit and the favor
I acquired with the Pope was something
indescribable." In fact, to read his
account, one would think the attack was
made for the express purpose of enabling
Cellini to exhibit his prowess.
The translation, by Iohn Addington
Symonds, is written in a free style,
which makes easy reading. If one's
reason is not outraged by the evident
exaggeration and egotism of Cellini,
the book is an attractive picture of the
life of a high-spirited and talented artist
of the Italian Renaissance.,
ALL QUIET ON THE XVESTERN FRONT
Few books have swept the continents
as the war masterpiece by Erich Maria
Remarque. All Quiet on the Iyemtern
Front. Of all the descriptions of the
Great Conflict this the most powerful,
the most truthful, the most simple.
It is a book of terrible experiences
written of war as it is suffered by the
common soldier. Here is no glamour, no
glory, no prejudice, no accusation. It is
a model of English prose, rising at times
to a power which moves one beyond
measure. To Remarque the Front is
"a mysterious whirlpool." The earth is
"a soldier's only friend, his brother, his
mother g he stifles his cries in her silence
and her security Q she shelters him and
gives him a new lease of ten seconds of
life, receives him again, and often
The book was written without delib-
eration, out of Remarque's own and his
friends' war experiences. They were
very young-only eighteen-when they
were participating in the world's great-
est nightmare. The horrors which they
endured are related so explicitly as to
sometimes shock the reader. The pic-
ture of the Russian prisoners with mute,
hang-dog expressions on their bearded
faces standing in a great cage-the
picture of the recruit maddened by the
horror of the battlefield-the days in a
hospital where beds were emptied all too
quickly and filled without delay--are
not revolting episodes, but so human
and pitiful that they arouse emotions
which stir one's feelings more deeply
than words can explain.
The peace advocates may hail All
Qufet on the Iyeirtern Front as their most
powerful and commanding argument.
There is no clearer illustration of the
havoc and madness and futility of war.
The author's explanation best sums up
All Quiet on the lVe.rtern Front as follows:
"This book is to be neither an accusa-
tion nor a confession, and least of all an
adventure, for death is not an adventure
to those who stand face to face with it.
It will try simply to tell of a generation
of men who, even though they may have
escaped its shells, were destroyed by the
Now comes once more that challenge of
YVhen all the richest pageantry of art,
Is flung upon our senses with one burst
Of martial music ere the ranks depart.
There stand the souls of gladiators brave,
Who triumphed in that last, long
Their hands uplifted now to awe-struck
All gallantly salute us as they die.

THE ORIGIN OF THANKSGIVING
qCOIIli1l1ll'd from page ZIP
In early England they celebrated
Harvest Home and it was said to be
dated back to the times of the Saxons.
They had many curious customs, such
as dressing up in corn sheaves parading
in honor of the last wagons to leave
From an account by Clarke in his
"Travels" written a hundred years ago,
we are given an account of a harvest
home festival in Cambridge. That
time they celebrated, with great pomp
and loud shouts, by having a clown,
dressed in women's clothes, with his face
painted, and his head decorated with
ears of corn and other emblems of
Ceres, drawn around in a wagon with the
horses covered with sheets. The people
declared that the ceremony was for the
drawing of the Harvest Queen.
Coming from such English stock, it
was only natural that the early settlers
in our own land should celebrate the
Harvest Home. From the first festival
of the early settlers, it has been brought
down to us through the years, so that
now, we, in the Twentieth Century, cele-
brate as Thanksgiving the same holiday
known to the Greeks and Romans.
"Not many fellows can do this,"
said the magician as he turned his Ford
into a lamp-post.

Used Car Investors
We call your attention to the enviable record for honest values and
square dealing the Germantown Packard Company has built up. Our
cars are usually obtained from Germantown and surrounding subur-
ban families who change their cars quite often, leaving for the second
buyer most of the care-free service one could expect from a new car.
Many of our used cars are backed by our new car guarantee and all of
them receive Germantown Packard Co. standard of service.
WVe urge you, before buying, to investigate for yourself, what German-
town Packard olfers as to quality, service and guarantee.
