Dorothy Mitchell, our 4B President, is a girl of whom our class may well be proud. She has twice been manager of the ' 25 tennis team, manager ot the 3B Rally, Reporter, and A ctivities Editor on the " Mirror " Staff, 2A Class President, and Vice-President of the Student Body — a true all-round girl. Marian " Tiny " Barry e.xemplifies the saymg, " Big thmgs come in small packages. " " Tiny " has been Secretary and President ot the Student Body, and active in Camp Fire and in the S. P. A. Esther Belli, the Editor of the Journal this term and 3A and 3B Class Secretary, is another girl who has been a credit and help to our class — ready to give her services whenever they have been needed. Marian Joseph was Assistant Editor of the " Mirror " last term, and as Editor this term, saw the paper through one of its most successful semesters. Marian has not confined her interests solely to the " Mirror, " but has been ready to ser ' e her class at all times. Viola Gritfin, to whom goes much credit tor being the author of the 3B Rally and co-author with Marjorie Mensor of the 4B, was the Literary Editor on the Journal Staff this term. Clarice Gehret, when a Freshman, suggested the " Mirror " as the name for the school paper which was started in 1921. Clarice served as Class President during our 2B term, and was the " leading man " in both our 3B and 4B Rallies. She was our First Representative on the Executive Council, and was Secretary of the Senior Class this year. In addition she has taken important roles in sex-eral of the Dramatic Club plays. It we think ot the S. P. A., we automatically mention Kathenne Elliott, who served as the President of that organization this term. " Kitty " has been acti -e in Camp Fire Circles and was 4 A President She was Treasurer ot the Senior Class this year. Katherine Beals received the honor ot being the first Scln)ol Historian. The debating world ot the past tew years reminds us of Susan Branden- ■ stein, one of Girls ' High ' s foremost debaters, and President of the Debating Club this term. We ga ' e our first dance when we were iB ' s; Eleanor Birmingham was our president during that chapter of our High School career. A Rally was given during our 3B term when Doris Malitz was " in the chair. " Doris managed the Freshman reception this semester. This closes our history, and so with fond remembrances of four pleasant, and all too short years spent here, We Bid You Good-bye Our Alma Mater, dear Girls ' High.

Dawn — and yet none of the illage was astir with the usual early morning commotion that marked the beginning of each day. No bustling crowds jostled in the rustic market-place. No chattering house-wives clustered around their humble doorways to clean their millet, and exchange village gossip. No laughter now; no happy cries ot children, as they clung to their fathers ' heels, begging their elders to stay at home, to fly grotesque kites, or to test their skill at the belo ' ed shuttlecock. No friendly greetings, nor neighborly comments on the weather; no one to ask how many " coats cold " it was, that is how many coats the gods required that one must wear in order to keep warm. Where had all ot these happy scenes disappeared ' No one knew but the ri er — the great treacherous Hwang-Ho that had mercilessly destroyed all that these humble people knew of happiness. In one ot the lowly village huts, so typical of Shantung, with its cracked mud walls and roofs of kaoliang or straw, one of the saddest and most piti- ful results ot the river ' s flood had come about. The little dwelling, consist- ing of one room, sheltered twelve people: cousins, a widowed aunt, his mother, his wife and children, and other members and relatives of the fam- ily of Ah Ching — all dependent upon him and his scant bag of millet for their very existence. " Come, bear up, the end will not be long nor hard, " Ah Ching was argu- ing in a choked, broken voice, " it will be better for us not to know. " " Oh my baby — my baby — " came the anguished cry of the mother as her husband silently closed the door and disappeared in the gray morning light. The frenzied woman tottered after him on her tiny cramped feet, but they would not support her, and she fell at the door moaning, " Ah Ching! Ah Ching ! Oh hear me ! " But Ah Ching had not heard her. He had gone, and taken with him his undesired baby girl. In the hut he had left, there was only a grief-stricken silence. The old grandmother rose from her household shrine. " It is of no use, " she sighed, " The great Dai Wan, god of the river, will not hear me when there is no incense to burn. Oh my dear, do not mourn too much. As my poor Ah Ching says, it will not be long; besides, it is the custom. " Thus, in the strict old lady ' s mind, there was no further cause for argument. Her ancestors had sacrificed their girl babies when there were too many mouths to feed, and so it was not wrong for her son to give up his child. It was two miles to the baby tower. Ah Ching walked as fast as he could; he wanted to get there before the sleeping child awakened. Soon he found [Page Txvcnty-cight THE JOURNAL y June 1 g 2 jf% himsclt at the toot of the gruesome structure. He raised the hahy slowly over his head, and closed his eyes; he could not trust himself to look. The ledge, where he was to place the child, was directly above him, and some- how, Ah Ching never knew why, he instinctively opened his eyes just before his hand reached the fatal spot. Horrified, he drew back and stared dully at the ledge. He had not foreseen this predicament. Another child was on the ridge, and betore Ah Ching could put his own there, he must push the other baby into the wretched tower. Thus, according to ancient custom, no man was forced to kill his own child. " The princely man knows neither gnet nor fear. " Ah Ching remembered that the old village priest had read that to him from the proverbs of Con- fucius. There was more to the saying, but he had forgotten the rest. " And I know both, " reflected the poor man, staring at the still, little heap on the ledge. He raised his quivering hand halfway to the ridge and then drew it back. " I cannot — " he gasped, " I cannot do it ! " Defiantly he gathered his child in his arms, and turned in the direction oi the village. He had not gone far when he met the old priest hurrying home- ward. The old man stopped and waved excitedly to him. " I bear joyful news, " cried the good priest, " a supply of millet is on the way. We shall no longer be in want. " Ah Ching bowed his head in gratitude. " Good keeper oi the ;os5, " he said, " will you tell ire once n ' ore the proverb about grief and fear? " " Conhicius hath said: ' The princely man is one who knows neither griet nor fear. If, on searching his heart, he finds no guilt, why should he grie ' e — of what should he he afraid?

I went to bed that evening quite early, but in a few minutes, it seemed to be morning again and I was at school. I ' ll never forget the appearance of the school when I entered; there were girls ex ' crywhere. I pushed through the crowd at the door, and made my wa ' up the stairs. The rooms were filled to overflowing, and there were rows of seats running down the corridors as far as 1 could see. NHss Daniel was at the head ot the stairway with a stack of carbooks as high as the ceiling on cither side of her. They were the most extraordinary carbooks I had ever seen; they were at least a yard long and about four inches thick. As I passed, I said, " Good morning, Miss Daniel. " The girls around her were screaming at the tops of their voices, but it didn ' t seem to phase her in the least. She looked at me over her glasses; then, she thrust an imniense oiled mop toward me and said sternly, " Go clean Room i lo. " Unhesitatingly I grasped the mop and made my way hurriedly through the crowd. When I opened the door ot the Journal Office, 1 stopped aghast — the floor was simply littered with paper. I went to work, and as soon as everything was spick and span a shower ot typed sheets pelted down on me threatening to bury me ali ' e, and so I ran away as tast as my legs could carry me. Farther down the corridor, I saw Dr. Scott. His face was very red and he was blowing on a tuba, makuig a most unearthly racket. I cried to slip by without disturbing him, but he saw m; and said severely, " The cover of the journal this year is to be orange with sky-blu; pink trimmings. " 1 looked at him and said bravely, " But, Dr. Scott, a sea-green — " " Not at all! I insist on the sky-blue pink, " and he puffed out his cheeks and went on playing his tuba. I was walkmg sadly away, when I heard someone say, " It ' s lunch time. " I went down to the cafeteria and all they had for lunch was chocolate pepper- mints. There ' s nothing I dislike more than chocolate peppermints. " I won ' t eat one, " 1 said defiantly, and then the whole taculty surrounded me. " You must, " said Miss Armer, as she came towards me with a bagful. Reluctantly I stretched cuit my hand for one — " Esther! Come now, or you ' ll be late. " I was out ol bed in a flash and solemnly swore then and there ne er to eat another pickle -not for a week anyway. E. B.

The warm sunny rays, which enveloped the flowers on a veil of powdered gold, echoed deep within their hearts, and chen spilled ouc again in a glorious contusion ot warmch and lighc. A flutter ot blue on the brow ot the hill, a happy lilting laugh, and a child danced and skipped into view. Filled with the wonder ot the rare beauty before her, she paused; then, with a cry of delight, she was among the flowers, plucking a full-blown blossom here, a render half-opened bud chere, •until her arms were full ot the fragrant mass. Still laughing, still dancing and clasping her treasure, she went on her way, leaving the other blossoms CO nod and sigh among themseK ' es. Gradually the cool shadows lengthened; the child turned homeward. She glanced down at her boquet and was dismayed to noce chac che flowers were losing cheir radianc beaucy. Hurriedly she crudged on, buc che blossoms drooped uncil all their white and gold beauty was a wilted mass. With a sob of despair, she flung them down, and was slowly lost to view around che edge of the hill.

Ideas are interchanged, our mental scope is broadened, and we reap the mutual benefits denx ' ed from the natural intercourse ol in- dividuals. From the group of girls around us, we chose our friends. We call them triends, but how many of us see anythmg in this friendship beyond the mere attraction of personalities? There is no element in lile that can contribute so much to brighten the pathways or ease the burdens and sorrows of life as friendliness. Its influence is the basis for the inspiration of higher ideals, and awakens in us the new resolve steadily to iorge ahead and attain them. Every day, each of us has some problem, some obstacle that must be overcome; and it is to our triends that we turn for the sympathy and counsel that is unfailing. Why cannot we all be more friendly ' There are always opportunities around us to be of service to some fellow student and brighten her dark hour. If a girl seems discouraged in her work, help her to find her trouble; assist her to remedy it. The realization that you have been of use in the solving of her problem will repay you ten fold. Each semester, new girls come into the school who, for months afterward, seem unable to fit them- selves into the daily curriculum, and who, because of shyness, find it difficult to ma ke friends. Would it be too much for us to approach these girls and try to make them happier and more at home? " The candle loses nothing in light by lighting another candle. " We do not lose, but increase our capacity tor friendship by being a friend. The best securities to own are the bonds of friendship. Invest in them heavily; they are invaluable.

The programs have been varied and interesting, thanks to Mona Dutton, and the new members have been co-operating to their utmost. Fine spirit has been displayed in all the acti ' ities of the Club.

This term two successful plays were gi en, " The Pot Boiler " and " Spreading the News. " The success of the plays is due not so much to the talent of a few girls as to the whole-hearted co-operation of all the members. Perhaps the greatest thing the Dramatic Club has to be proud of is the fact that the proceeds go to replenish the Scholarship Fund of Girls ' High School Student Body. All girls who are interested in this sort of work are invited to attend the meetings and join the club.
