CLIVEDEN dedicates this issue to our Principal 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 another. ' 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 esteemed. 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. -rsr- EDlT0 'IA S' Q El 1, . tml! 1 Lei' uw here create .romellzing beauiQ'ul in arf and Iiferalurej .romefhing lhouglzffulfor every-day living, .romeflzing joyous for llze lzlqhier mooa'.r of levi!-y. SGHOGDLS GIBANNIDQEF EIDUIEACIIIB 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, achieve success. 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. D. B. 1. .QI 4 Ig.. A 1I?f4D4DlID SGIAIRGI AND A SGTIEBAEGY PAGE "IV e never fully realize the value of ilzz'ng.r 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, organized process? 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 them through. 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. " GEORGE D. GIDEON, III. lr 3 rn eams If f mn..

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 '3l7ll" THE CLIVEDEN 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 L QQQR XJ HSP- '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. 4191?- THE CLIVEDEN 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 majestic psalm: "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 410112- THE CLIVEDEN 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 came-Iohn Quarles! 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 story. 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 THE CLIVEDEN brave. He slid to the ground without asound. 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 future.

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- weight, besides." "Well," I replied, "I wonder that I haven't gone crazy over this war. By the way, Buddy, do you think this war will end by 1920? I have an installment 413112- 3 THE CLIVEDEN 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 going. " I looked at him and asked, "NVhat do you mean?" "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 it occurred." "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 is hurt." Bewildered I jumped up and stuck my head over the top. "Buddy, Buddy, come back 5 it's all over. The war is-. " 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.

QI think I am well qualified to judge as he and I have been chums ever since we were kidsj He was the same cheerful talkative fellow that had gone gaily "0ver There" in the spirit of adventure. The horrors of lighting had evidently left no mark upon him. This was August 1919, ten months after the Armistice, and naturally the conversation drifted to the war and his experiences. He told me of many incidents, some dramatic, more pathetic, and he told them wellg so well, in fact, that I was successively thrilled and moved almost to tears. He talked interestingly for a full hour and then apologized. "Sorry. Sort of forgot myself. Once I get going I hardly know when to stop. U I asked, "And . . . Iohnson, what about him? . . . How did he get his?" "Ah Iohnson," he said slowly, "Yeh . . . Iohnsonf' He carefully filled his pipeg looked thoughtfully at the ceiling and began to talk. "Ieff," he said, "I've known you some eighteen years, haven't I? You and I knew Iohnson four years. In these four I got to know him better, better than either you or I knew him at first, and he was no model boy scout. He had the sneakiest, lying, rottenest way about him and I came to hate him good and proper. "YVell, this wore on for weeks, and several times we nearly tore each other apart. All the time my hate for him increased. "Then Christmas came along and we got together some kind of a party in the main dugout. There were drinks, and cards, some singing, and we had a pretty fair time. All the boys were a little under. Can't blame 'em. They were trying to make believe they were happy. But, I noticed that Iohnson especially had taken too much. He was flushed and quarrelsome 3 he annoyed me. " Iack leaned across the table. "Now listen Ieff. Now comes the important part. "You know those little dolls they stick on wedding cakes? YVell, someone had dug up something like it for our cake." He remained silent for a moment. "I was a little under the weather that night too," he resumed, "and all sorts of funny things cropped up in my mind. Among other useless bits of information which insisted on running through my brain was how Ye Olde Magicians did away with their enemies by sundry operations and attacks on wax figures, made to represent the person at whom they were sore. You know? A "To me in my tipsy state the doll on the cake presented great opportunities and I thought the time had come to do away with Iohnson once and for all. I was drunk, remember. "Accordingly, I drilled a neat hole with a pin through the figure's heart, murmuring at the same time Iohnson's name. I, in my drunken innocence, was surprised to see that the object of my charm was talking and wrangling as boisterously as before. My scheme was unavailing.

As depicted by the accompany- ing illustration. 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 Hardware and Bakery has jammed up the works. This, of course, causes a severe mental recrudescence fDaddy, what's a severe mental recrudescence'!j during which he manages to extract the fcensoredj shell at the expense of taking a goodly nick from his thumb.

Toward noon, our friend is touched by the pangs of hunger. Reaching into his pocket, he drags out three roast pork sand- wiches, strongly resembling a futuristic artist's conception of a well-scrambled egg. He makes an attempt to eat this conglomeration and then washes it down with a swallow or two of-er-orangeade which elevates his spirits surprisingly. Finally he actually sees a duck and lets out a load of lead to chase it.

Two fC'onlinucd on page 421 -:1I16lb- A SllllllDlIRlllSNlINlNl?f EDISEDVIBRGM' HARRY WYETH 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 head-on. 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. ei171YC' 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 queer. 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- fire burning. 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 THE CLIVEDEN 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 -darker-oblivion. LTIIIHIHIUIEB lIl?llRllE5413lIE5lIlD6lllflll11fDllNll GDI? EVIL FLORENCE B. SILBER 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 sordid evil. 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- -01119110- THE CLIVEDEN 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 I Saw it. I felt its rank breath on my facep there were only two or three inches separating us. The automobile, which had been the source of illumination passed on, leaving me again in total darkness. Sick, im- measurably sick, I turned on my heels and ran, until I reached light and at lea st temporary safety. O: :O 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. 412011:- e , '39 '- .I , GJ ll Season of mists and mellow fruitfulnessl Close bosom friend of the maturing sun 3 Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit, the vines that round the thatch-eaves run," A is the despription that Iohn Keats gave of Autumn, that bounteous and beauti- ful time of year when we commemorate Thanksgiving. 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 Gllfklllllili 4DllRM?fllllINll Ulf wmawkseivime NANCY REYNOLDS, Bk. 10 they were better and braver men for having turned aside from their labors to rest. 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- giving feast. fCoutinued on page 485 elI21le -:il 22 Ink 'What Genmmtnvm lliidil' .Qi 23' Ig.. wr .Ht IIHIGDIININDIIR IIEQIIISGJIF 960 The following is a list of Distinguished and Meritorious pupils Gradualca Elmer Elbert Craig Charles Shearer Iacobs Ierome Iacob Atlas XVilliam Macaleer Eileen Otto Mullen Louis Halleck Tremain Iudith NI.

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 x . 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 THE CLIVEDEN 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 dollars. "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 shoes. ' "The women wash their clothing in some nearby stream. The garments are laid upon flat rocks and pounded withtwo sticks. They are turned over and over again, and continually pounded until clean. The same method is used for ironing them. The clothes are spread on a dry flat rock, and pounded in the same way. "Their speech is the reverse of ours. 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 brilliant indeed. "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 dubious. "Along all the roads and streets, there are wayside stands at which they sell --11.27 Il- THE CLIVEDEN 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 of their stock in materials than in fin- ished garments. "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 cheapest. "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."

To us she looms immense-she is painted over her rust-by unforgetable associa- tions. 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 rain. 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 imaginable blue. 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 and-other things. 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 n THE CLIVEDEN 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 fifty degrees. The crew were a peculiar conglomera- tion. The cook had played football at Cornell 3 one of the fireman could not read or write. From the stubborn Dutchman to the easy-going Carolinian, they were a hard swearing, hard drink- ing crew, but surprisingly decent to live with. 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 farther north. 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 made brossy by the fierce reflection of the sun. 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 heavily-wooded hills. 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. .31 3Q Ig. THE CLIVEDEN 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 promoted. 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 incalculable.

Diese Sitte stammt aus der altesten Vorzeit des deutschen Volkes und hat sich durch zwei jahrtausende bis in die Gegenwart erhalten. Durch dieses Fest gibt das Volk seiner Freude iiber die lange Helligkeit Ausdruck, die uns die Sonne an diesem Tage beschert. Am johannisabend ziindet man an vielen Orten Freudenfeuer an. Die Bewohner ziehen unter den Kliingen der Dorfmusik zum Festplatz. Bald beginnt ein lustiges, freudiges Treiben um den angeziindeten Holzstoss. Liebesleute, jeder Bub mit seinem Miidchen, springen uber die Flamme, wohl zum Zeichen, dass sie, wenn es not tut, auch mitein- ander und fiireinander durchs Feuer gehen wollen. Ringsum lagern im Kreise auf dem Boden alle die nicht mitwirken. Die Alten erzahlen Marchen und Sagen, man starkt sich am mitgebrachten Imbiss und freut sich am jungen Volke und seiner Kurzweil. Eine alte Chronik erzahlt, wie Kaiser Friedrich der Dritte im jahre 1473 das Sonnwendfest in Regensburg auf offenem Markte hielt und wie hierbei die vor- nehmsten Hofdamen um das brennende Fass tanzten. Selbst Bischijfe nahmen an diesen Festlichkeiten teil. LA MARSEILLAISE Allonsg enfants de la patrie, Le jour de gloire est arrive! Contre nous de la tyrannie L'etandard sanglant est leve!

LIFE AND LETTERS or EMILY DICKINSON ECAUSE a half century has passed since Emily Dickinson tended her amaranthine bloom and wrote her incomparable poetry: Il 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." -rimy Lowell. 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- -Bacon. 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 CELLINI . 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 modestly says, "I took such pleasures in my duties that I discharged them better than my --all 34 Ixo- -THE CLIVEDEN 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 forever." 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 war.

JEWELERS SILVERSMITHS STATIONERS A Philadelphia MAKERS OF THE OFFICIAL SCHOOL PIN Fraternity Emblems, Stationery and Class Pins and Rings I 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 the fields. 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. lT'S - EASY - TO FORGET FIRE LOSSES IF YOU Insure home and conlenls with GERMANTOWN MUTUAL FIRE 5521 GERMANTOWN AVE.

Such students are cordially invited to communicate with the Dean of Pharmacy or the Dean of Science relative to our entrance qualifications for the Freshman Class starting in September, 1930.
