The Duke of Wellington said that the battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton. After this war is over some historian is going to say that it was won on the campuses of America's schools and colleges. He won't be wrong. While German and Italian youth were goose stepping for Hitler and Mussolini, American youth were playing desperately on the football fields and basket ball courts for the honor of their schools. Hitler's youth were compelled to march and drill and to train for war, but American youth voluntarily studied for peace and trained for sports. The German organ- izations built strong, blindly bodies and unquestioning,blind- ly obedient minds. America filled her youth with the spirit of team work, .the will to win, and the ability to win. She 'helped them build well balanced bodies, and good muscular coordination. dThe German athlete isaa machine capable of doing only what he has been taught. The American athlete is trained to handle himself under all conditions. His timing is carefully developed. Every muscle in his body is strengthened systematically. He is taught the basic principles of his game and he practices them until he does them auto- maticly but when he is in a game he makes his own decisions according to the circumstances. The German youth fights as he plays. He is a fighting machine capable of only certain tasks under limited conditions. He does not enjoy a battle just as he doesn't a game. He has no background of sports to give him the spirit of a contestant in a game for his games had been part of a regi- mented training program in which he had no chance to 'show any individuality at all. The American youth :fights for his country just as he played for his college. A battle is a test for himself 'and his country and he puts himself whole- heartedly into it. He risks his life in war as he risked his limbs in football games. He enters a battle as- he entered a game, with a good knowledge of his own and his enemies weaknesses and strengths, with the conviction .that hinis fighting for the right side, and the belief that he will W . All of Americas fighting forces are tremendously strenth- ened by her athletes but the air force benefits most. 'In a bomber team work, muscular coordination, perfect timing, and stamina are as important as a knowledge of one's job. These things are not got while in the army or navy but while on the gridirons, baseball diamonds, and basket ball courts. Clifford Manchester '45 x 1 'r 5 - 'fn .A LEND-LEASE A POWERFUL WEAPON Lend-Lease is an American device by which the United Nations aid one another with supplies and services. ' From 1951 to l958,when the second world war was develop- ing, we stayed out of the world struggle, but finally from, our desire for security' we passed the cash-and-carry law to enable us to arm those, who in fighting for their security, might assure ours too. By spring 1940 France wr: out of the war and Zritair stcad alone against Germany and Italy. By the next year ,Britain left to spend. without our help she could had little money not continue the war successfully. Mhat should we do? We enter the warg we could not lend Britain did not want to money because the Johnson Act forbade that, and we dared not let Britain, China, and the rest perish. The solution to our problem was the Lend-Lease 'Act passed just nine months before Pearl Harbor. The defeat of nations fighting, and lend or lease to them the things they needed. Lend-Lease is, not only between the United States andfq other members of the United Nations but also between other members. Up to the end of 1942 Great Britain had sent more weapons, overseas to fighting fronts than we had. She sent Russia more than 2500 tanks and more than 3000 planes. We are familiar' with the fact of supplies going from this country to the United Nations, but we are less familiar with the help being given us by others. Take New Zealand as an example. All the mean vegetables eggs, fruits, butter, and cheese eaten by our troops in New Zealand are given without charge under Lend-Lease. Last fall our soldiers got so many eggs that New Zealanders were reduced to three eggs to a person each week for several months. Two large hospitals, and hotels have been turned over to American troops. Our troops are also transported free on their rail- roads 0 4 Australia began to help us when she sent shiploads of food to our troops on Bataan. Australians are the world's biggest meat eaters, but when we sent thousands of our sold- iers there, the civilianfs habits changed, and now they eat meat when they can get it. They can get very few canned goods only 10 cigarettes U driving is against the law. a day when they are available.

In this manner Australia returns what she receives from us under Lend-Lease. The American forces in New Caledonia are getting aid from the Fighting French, South Africa supplies naval aidg India makes uniformsg Belgium aids us in the Congo. China ships us raw materials. Lend-Lease aidibrour forces in the British Isles starts before the troops leave our ports because they are carried by British ships and conveyed by the British Navy. The British government pays the transportation costs of moving American soldiers in the Hritish Isles. Our soldiers are supplied, without cost, with arms, several hundred Spitfire planes and many field guns. Britain has provided us with over a million square yards of portable airfield runways and are supplying several 'thousand more. We have received supplies such as 15,000 bombs 70,000 rounds of 6-in. shells over 200 thousand anti-tank mines, electric 9 batteries hand grenades, parachutes, and many new hospitals. Almost all the bread for our soldiers is made from British flour under Lend-Lease, and they have agreed to sup- ply us with potatoes, fruits, vegetables, jam, and salt. Soon after Pearl Harbor she sent barrage 'balloons to our Vest Coast for defense apainst Jap attacks. Great Brit- ain has furnished us with specifications for her system of aircraft detection developed during a long period of bitter air warfare. The object of Lend-Lease is the destruction of the ene- my. Last year ?ritain's Eighth Army was equipped with Brit- ish weapons Rxftheir drive across Libya, but the 1000 planes 500 tanks and anti-tank Suns that we sent to the British gave them air power, fire power and armor. The General Sherman tanks that were used so successfully were designed by British and American experts. In dollars spent Lend-Lease has cost the Uhited States from March 1941 to January 1945 more than eight and one quarter billion dollars. It is quite probable that we shall expend more dollars and deliver more goods to others than they will to us, since we have the world's largest and only bomb free industry among the United Nations, as well as a larve asriculture LJ na ' ..5.. LEND-LEASE A Pov,EarUL WEAPON cconzinueay ' No country no matter hom rich or strong can stand alone against a mass of powerful enemies. All countries are dep- endent. The real wealth of a country is not money but goods and services. May we be intelligent enough and broadminded enough to use the same good judgment at the peace table that we have used in this powerful weapon LEND-LEASE. y Verlie Walls '45 WOMEN AND THE WAR American women are no longer bystanders at war. They're in it up to their ears. Soon fresh troops will 'replace our weary boys on the icy plateaus and in stormy jungles reinforce- ment made possible by alert-eyed girls in olive drab and navy twill. For day by day these girls are replacing Army and Navy men at desks in recruiting and supply offices, has well as big behind -- the -- lines jobs, as engineers, cooks, chemists, and specialists of all kinds. And throughout the United States millions of other women are replacing men needed for battle. Not all are in uniform, but all are earning their stripes. It may be in unbrave sweaty ways like welding, driving milk wagons or taxis, riding cranes in a shipyard, or the less spectacular job of being both mother and father to tomorrow's children. ,All these things the American woman does gladly. For she knows to the aching depths of her heart what kind of war this is. It isn't for boundaries, for profit or loot. lt's her war. Her men are 'sacrificing their lives for everything she loves and believes in,for the way she wants life to be for her- self and her loved ones. For the American family is the whole kernel of democracyg the wholesome give and take, the security from fear, the free play of the individual, yet his compassion for and dependence upon the others. Tocreate such a nation we once fled from the Gld World. H We can no longer call this the American dream.For through- out the world these ideals of a more perfect society haveseeped into each secluded valley, across craggy mountaintcps, into the hearts and souls of distant suffering people. The whole world is our neighbors It is a dream we must share and help come trues But first we must win this war. And to that end the American woman is dedicated today, whether she is nurturing young spirits inthese ideals with spankings and lessons and birthday candles, helping produce grain and pigs as well as tanks and guns or cradling some wounded sailor's head in the pitching seas of the North Atlantic. Not to mention those who have enrolled in the several women's corps of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, and Marines. - 4 - -ma-4:--:eaILMANez--zssaeealiIGHee-as--se-:sa-scHOOL-:sees-4+ ul943a a a a s s 4 a a t THE- GILMANAC 4 4 a 4 s s 4 4 wl945u WOMEN AND THE WAR Ccontinuedl Other emergencies have seen American men compulsory reg- istered, and drafted too. But never before has the hand of compulsory enrollment been laid on women. Women are taking the place of men on trolley cars and elevators, as waiters, stock clerks, and taxicab drivers. Right now at least 600,000 more women have jobs then had them last year. The War Manpower Commission estimates that six million women will be engaged in direct war work by the end of 1945. The American Women's Voluntary Services is a permanent national organization, created in anticipation, of the part, that American women can play in protecting their homes -and in serving their communities and country. A Remember the Somme, the Aisne, the Mouse-Argonne offensive? Casualties, mud war. War and the people of America, from every Valk of life, singing that they would Ukeep the home fires Burn? American armies advancing in North Africa, men from our coun- try in the Solomons, in China, India, Australia, and in every part of the globe, to avenge Lidice and Rotterdam and Pearl Harbor. This is 1945. ' But today, the women of this country are not alone singing "keep thehome fires burning." In gallant service to their country they are doing just that. - ' ,Through the United' States Organization, pledged to give a Nhome away from homeu to all American men in uniform, more than 600,000 women today are giving their professional knowledge and their talents in home-making to fulfill that pledge. ' Not all women, however, are able to give as much time to this work as they might like. To the women having definite respons- ibilities which she must meet and which limit the time Gf her disposal, the American Red Cross is the ideal agency through which she may put her talents to work. One of the most pressing problems which has faced defense councils all over the country is that of carrying the war pro- grams into every home. There is an important new field here for women of initiative and leadership, the newly developed Block System. This system will organize the community for action in the field of civilian war services just as it is organized for action in an air raid. Each block or neighborhood chooses block leaders. They report to a sector block leader who in turn reports to a zone leader. These block leaders will, in almost every case be women, for their job is the daytime job of carrying the need for action, explaining the way the battle goes on Guadalcsmmal or in Tunisia or at Stalingrad. , 151 WOMEN AND THE WAR Kcontinuedj Red nail polish has disappeared for the duration. In its place has come a combination of axel grease, engine oil and metal filings, and the female sex at Duncan Field is very proud of this new style. The women at this huge ahrfwymt near-San Antonio, Texas have slipped quickly and intelligently into the places left vacant by the men who have gone overseas to meet our common enemy face to face. They ask no favors from the men working with them. If there is a heavy piece of equipment to pick up, they'll pick it up, if there is a tool to be gotten, they'll get it. There is courage' and self-sacrifice in the American women of this brutal twentieth century, just as there is courage and gallantry in the man of the family. Together, they cannot lose the struggle. Women are used for whatever work they can do. They are in all army camps in the navy and in the air forces. In the last J named service many of them have been killed in the bombing of airdromes, and they have met 'their deaths like soldiers. They do clerical work and code work, and are numerous in the intellw igent service. They can become officers of every rank up to the two or three highest. Girls have become WAACS, WAVES, SPARS, MARINES, and WAFS. They are training to become nurses. Older women as well as girls have volunteered for the innumerable branches of the American Red Cross, for the American Women's Voluntary Services, for the Office of Civilian Defense. They are serving as Airplane Spotters They are manning, Filter Centers, War Bond Booth, U S O Head- quarters. Wherever there is war work to be done, they are doing their part. They are doing'toq the far less glamorous but equally important work in the home and on the farm. Whether they be volunteers or paid workerg the women of this country are giving their bestz They are meeting this emergency with courage with imagination, with sacrificial zeal, that the world may once again be free. 4' Madeline Bucklin I V45 Success is spelled with four letters -- WORK.

People whispered that there was some manner of spirits living ,in thisnnld deserted house. I being an adventurous person, wanted to find out the truth of these statements. Most of all, I think to show the townspeople that I could stay in a haunted house all night without being harmed. Just so I wouldn't be all alone, a million miles from nowhere, which was five miles from town, I brought my maid, Agatha, with me. Needless to say she was a timid soul, as are all maids I have the misfortune to hire. -But she came.. On the second night of our stay at the old mansion I was lying in bed, sleepless. It was one of those stormy electrically charged nights. One could hear the moaning of the trees as the wind passed through their branches and in .the distance could be heard the low growl of thunder. Suddenly, I jumped! what was that ? Above the rattle of the storm I seemed to hear a weird loud muaicaless music. I listened again. I could still hear itg it was coming from down- stairs. Agatha, hearing the sounds at the same time I did, came softly running into my room. Her face was as white as a sheet and she was trembling violently. I calmed her a little and took in my shaking hand a revolver which I secretly kept by my bed. My knees were so wobbly and knocked together so much as I started down the stairs that the apparation must surely be able to hear me I thought. Suddenly, there was a high wailing note accompanied by a stroke of lightning,which sent me almost fainting, back up the stairs. When I had calmed myself, and the wild beating of my heart had ceas ed a little, I started down the stairs again. One, two,three, four, I counted the old, rotten and sqeaky steps,while I gripped tightly the revolver all the time. I reached the bottom step and felt my way through the dark kitchen to the living room door. ' In the living room stood a large old piano. Much to my horror, in a flash of lightning, I saw something which to me looked like white fingers noving across the piano. I stood glued to the floor, watching, watching, as they continued to move across the tuneless keys. All at once a flash of lightning illuminated the room, show- ing me that white thing that was walking across the piano evidently enjoying the noise it made. No, it was not a spook, it was not a mouse, it was, of all things: Agatha's white cat.

I donft suppose it can be helped but I hope you get this, as it would make me happy. Dear son, what I am about to write isn't easy and please when you read this be the soldier that I know .you are. Dear, death is not spoken in kind easy words, but I know it is near the time for me to leave this world and I can gladly say I am proud to have my son serving our country. Remember dear, never be afraid of what your heart says is right. - Your devoted mother Jerryfs eyes were closed. Joe looked from the letter to Jerry. There was a peaceful smile on his face as his eyes closed for Jerry knew he would be meeting his mother soon and he knew also that he hadn't failed his country. Geraldine MacKenzie '44 - JUST A DOG He is a dogg small, wiry, alert, with short stiff legs, spotted with black.. His long shabby hair fwhite but with large black blots? gives him an appearence of being fat, but when wep, he shrinks away to-a trembling. skinny bag of bones. A short bushey tail, curled up over his back, wags'ddubtfu11y every time you speak to him. If your hand is within reach, he will push his cool, wet nose into it, begging with his eyes for you to scratch his ears, or pat his back. When you get close enough, you can see that the hazy blue disks set deep in his brown worried eyes seem to give out a lurid light. He can express feelings with his ears that require all the features of a human to express. He makes them lie down in shame when anyone scolds him, or makes them stand boldly erect when anyone calls him. Q - Alertness is his outstanding quality. He is never re- laxed even when sleeping, but ready to jump at every sound or movement. When the people come near the house he hastens to challenge them with high pitched, rasping voice.

Leila was perfectly poised and appeared to enjoy the formality of the meal and if she felt ill at ease, she did not reveal it. Irene was amazed bv her new daughter's charming manners. But resentment still gnawed at her heart. Why cou1dn't 1Jim have marriedione of his 'own set as she had always hoped? It was down right embarrassing when Leila followed Irene in to the library later that evening. U Mother Irene, n she started in a soft weak voice, HI know it's difficult for sou to have me here You see, Jim told'me all ahout von, Your plans for him, his future and evervthing i After a monent's silence she continued, nJim was afraid I wouldn't like you, but I wasn't. I knew Jim's mother must be someone fine to have reared such a lovely hc? as Jim. And now it is for me to measure up, so that You will like me. Resentment left lrenefs face. She crushed the girl to her. There were tears in her voice, but her ewes were shining because she knmwthgn thatleilammwas just the firl for her Jimmy, and that she would love her as if she were her own daughter.

The boys and girls take calisthenios for forty-five minutes twice a week, the boys Mondavs and Wednesdays and the girls Tuesdays and Fridays. The boys are under the direction of Mr. Black and the girls under the direction of Miss Greenleaf. At each session the classes line up for roll call which is followed by a few minutes of military drill. The next half hour is devoted to various kinds of exercise.

The Barrymores themselves would havetenx surprised at the remarkable acting in UQuiet Pleaseu and UBuddy Buys an Orchidn. Outside of the Northeast, Harbor Neighborhood Hall, before the plays, a number of policemen stood in the miserable rain di- recting the traffic! The huge crowd poured into the hall hours before the curtain. Great personalities, like the governor, a few noted Broadway stars, and a number of reporters and photo- graphers were present. Finally the hall lights were off, the fcotlights were on,and the curtain was going up. Y The first play was the senior's, nQuiet Pleasen. This fast moving comedy got plenty of hearty laughs from beginning to end. The actors and actresses were: Clifford Manchester as Jeff, James Walls, Jr. as his brother, Judd, Sunnyville Christian Society, with Ralph Wright as Rev. Andrews, Bette Beale as Mattie, Hester Seavey as Jessica, and Verlie Walls as Josie. Catherine, a stran- ger, would have been played by Madeline Bucklin, but due to 'ill- ness Charlene halls substituted. After the first great performance, the noted Gilman High School Band played a number of selections under the direction of Mrs. Bradford Herrick, who also staged the plays. Then the crowd was thrilled to see the curtain gc up on the second performance. It was the sophomorefs play WBuddy Buys an Orchidn. The play proved to the audience what great acting abil- ity and talent the sophomore class has! It showed, with the touches of comedy, the troubles and worries a teen-age boy, of the modern day hiss., The cast was as follows: Virgil Walton as Buddy, Rebecca Taylor as Mrs. Bradley, Euddy's mother, Charlene Walls as Alida, his sisterg Eleanor Halls as the maid, Belle 3 and Clifton Damon would have played Bill, Alida's friend, but due to illness, Gordan Falt substituted. The actresses, actors, end directors were overwhelmed with congratulations, many telegrams, flowers, and gifts! The report- ers and photographers crowded the dressing rooms of the great per- formers. - 50 - -M-2645-'31-GILMAN-X-45-M-i666HIVGH-39'3!--H-66-X-SCHOOLSZ-iii?-76 -zz-1945-2+ ef- es- -ze -2+ es ee es ez- THE GILMANAC as ez- -se ex- as ez- as es- e91945es raesmam its JUN1 on PLAYS On the night of April 50, 1943, two more Gilman plays took place at the Northeast Neighborhood Hall.

It was the same kind of a night as the last two plays HBuddy Buys An Orchidu, and WQuiet Please.n Rain and wind made it hard for neonle to get out to see the plays. But in spite of it all a good crowd turned out. The freshmen play, nPaul Faces The Tire Shortagen took placed first. It was a short comedy, and the actors xnf actresres did a grand job. It proved to the upper classmen that the freshmen are not so green after all. The cast was: Paul, Gordon Manchesterg his mother, Ida Halton, his father, Everett Carter, his sister, Mary, Florence Jordan, his girl friend, Jane, Bettr Uescottg and his brother, Junior, Lester Joy. X The Gilman High'School Band under the direction of Mrs.Herrkk played a number of selections after the first play. The junior's play "Someone For Bunny", followed the band con- cert.

The cast wasz- Barbara, Frances Iveneyg Peter, Austin 'Grindleg Bunny, Hoyt Clark, Irene, Flora Manchester, and Susie Richards, Sheila Norwood. - ' When the entertainment was over, the crowd started buttoning un their coats, pulling their hats over their ears, and pushed their wav out into the rain.
