Our wonderland was diferent from hers, but it held just as many prodi- gies and marvels. We explored the mysteries of atoms, met Cicero in his toga, mastered the riddle of words, walked in ancient Greece, saw Ameri- ca grow up, discovered the enigma of algebra and the geometric abracadabra of circles, visited France and Ger- many, trilling our Monsieur and Herr conscientiously. In these pages we have set down a record of our travels. YQ ,D l I-ICH I N X xi .

Her interesting French classes transported us on imaginary tours through France. Her eagerness to share her store of knowledge stimulated us to outside research. Her enthusiasm for the annual Mardi Gras parties communicated itself to us so that no one will forget her gay leadership. For all that she has done for us so pleasantly and so well, we wish to dedicate our Yearbook to Miss Rosalie Abbot. DEDICATION C7 n cgppreciation The members of the Yearbook stayfi' ojfer their sincere thanks to Miss H eartz, Miss Morley, Miss Lithgow, and all the other members of the faculty who have devoted so much time to help- ing make this book enjoyable. Their advice has been invaluable and we shall always remember with pleasure our friendly relations with them. C50 the Glass of 1946 In your undergraduate days it has been your privilege to share in that wealth of learning created by the patient labors of many generations which has become our common heritage. Of your school which has made it possible for you to enjoy this privilege it can be said today as Mallet said of Oxford: "Through all the changes, greater than the traditions gathered round her, wiser than the prejudices which she has outgrown, saved by the new blood ever fiowing through her as strongly as the waters underneath her walls, still young in heart and ineffaceable in beauty, this school lives on, sharing her treasures ungrudg- ingly with those who seek them, her spirit with those who understand it." As you take your part in the reconstruction of the Post War World may you find, in the experiences and memories of your days within these walls, solace for your disappointments, inspiration to meet the crises in your 1ife's struggles, and joy in sharing your triumphs with Alma Mater, and, through the years, may you keep inviolate the treasured heritage you have here received at her hands.

In spite of occasional grumbling, we have always realized and appre- ciated their assistance. Not only have they helped us build foundations for future study, but they have striven to instil in us ideals that should be our mainstay in life. In our senior year especially, we were able to know our teachers not just as strict disciplinarians who sat at high desks, well-equipped with red ink, we saw them as real people with distinct and fascinating personalities, people who laughed with us and people with whom We enjoyed discussing all sorts of interests. We remember, too, those of the faculty who left before our graduation: Miss Lingham and Miss Abbot who took a personal interest in each one of usp Miss Griffith, whose thoroughness inspired usg Miss Hall, whose dignity awed usg and Miss Midgely, whose lovely voice delighted us. Their places, however, have been taken by others who have become or will become as dear to future graduates as these have been to us. In the years to come we know that the traditional spirit of Girls' Latin School will live on its faculty. E131 ir, ,,., 7113, ' 1,4A y' ff - 1 lllx - ,- A fff X X: A f KX: ,fi 1 ' - - A if ,gm fi!

Ap- probatious IV, III, II. l29l lass f?Hstor Alice giggled Cone never laughs on the Queen's Croquet Groundl. The poor king would never make first string on anyone's croquet team! She swooped up the paint- smeared flamingo from his favorite spot on the rosebush tree, and, with the grace of a modern dancing pupil, leaped over the furrows to tap her hedgehog into a ball. "Watch me now, King. There's a defi- nite technique to hitting Hedgie." Crook- ing her right elbow, and taking a firm grip at the base of Mingo's long neck, she exe- cuted a beautiful swing centered on Hedgie himself. But the swing never completed its arc, for Mingo, bending his neck to look up at Alice, winked! Hedgie unrolled himself to find Alice laughing helplessly, and, wiggling his whiskers, he ambled off to a friend two furrows down. "Oh!" moaned Alice, "maybe Hedgie would have preferred beat ball!" "Beat ball?" queried the King in his best befogged manner Cconfidentially he didn't do too well in his scholastic aptitude? . "Why, yes," replied Alice, tickling the fiamingo. "From the first day We trudged under the motto 'Let thy life be sincere,' with our pretty report cards clutched proudly in one fist, our Mother's hand in the other for assurance we were saved from mental exhaustion only by the intricacies of beat ball. The pigeons vacated the raft- ers that year, and even the windows quavered when Ann Hennessey, she of the 'powerful shoulders,' stepped to the plate. "The sixth class was wonderfully hectic -," Alice stopped for a moment to view the chaotic condition of the garden, and reconsidered her choice of adjective. "Well, it passed in a faster tempo than any previous year of our lives, and we loved every minute of it in a begrudging sort of way. How many trips we made to the matron for pencils, half boxes of Cheez-its, pens, handkerchiefs, and lunch boxes all left at various points in our daily trek through the building. And how many times we elbowed, pushed, and shoved to get a table in the primp room for lunch! We had green settees then, the color of the March Hare's hat, and they invariably lost a leg or a back rest when Lindsay threw I 30 her daily orange at Barbara above the heads of the vociferous mob. "We had grand science periods, too, King dear,"' continued Alice, "in which Miss Bradley would list the attributes of pudding stone and B. L. S. students with equal fluency. She's married now, you she will have as many have," she added, sur- ten frolicking children, she." The King puffed know, and I hope little ones as you veying the King's "and all as nice as up considerably and was ready to speak on the joys of parenthood when Alice con- tinued. "And that besmudged area on the ceil- ing near Miss Armstrong's office is due to the united efforts of the members of the sixth class tumbling act. We wrote our names in the dust of the ceiling during our first gym meet. Was Miss Armstrong en- raged! Roberta Navisky and I spent one wicked afternoon scrubbing that part of the ceiling -- it's been whiter than the rest ever since!" I This suddenly reminded Alice of the "red" rosebush with its one white bud which the gardners had missed in their hurry, and she laughed outright, much to the consternation of the King, who looked hastily about for his solemn queen. "But," she hastily continued, "by May a few facts had sifted through the battered craniums of the courageous survivors: anti- penults were vaguely connected with long syllables and Latin stressg Northeast stair- ways were used by ascending students and descending faculty, the Northwest, vice versa, silent passing periods meant that Susie couldn't reveal the answer to the fifth example until out of Miss Murphy's. ear- shot 3 and warnings were little cards that prevented you from gazing soulfully at the back of Joe's head on the two-fifteen car. "Lucy Manuelian and I gave a master- ful rendition of Chinkie Chinaman to 6D - you should have seen Lucy with her feet propped up on Miss L.undell's desk. The heelmarks never did come off. Then I continued my acting career by playing Midshipmate in the school operetta 'All At Sea' given at the B. L. S. Auditorium. The operetta was a financial success because of l Miss Lundel1's management and the enthu- siastic cooperation of the girls!" The King's attention had wandered hopefully to his lady, for these tales of another world had him a bit confused, and so, when Alice continued, she addressed her remarks to Two, Five, and Seven. These three were peering over the edge of the fiowerpot where they had sought shelter from the Queen's wrath. "We took walks through the Fenway where the red roses really grow red." The three eavesdroppers hurriedly ducked below the pot rim again as a missile flew by their ears. "We had only about three more weeks of school, and the weather was heavenly," said Alice obligingly turning again to the King. "At last Mrs. Fennessey recorded the last 'F' and said good-bye to her kindergarten children. Vacation was on!" Alice's face took on a sweet ecstatic look unmarred by memories of conditions and admonition. It was a look recalling days spent in trapping goldfish in one of the Arnold Arboretum ponds, in playing tincan relievo at the foot of the street, in climbing the quarry shaft with the exhila- rating sense of nothingness below. "But," remembered Alice, "we enjoyed the first day of school again in September, dressed smartly in our polished mocs and new plaid suits. Weren't we fifth class- men? The glow lasted for two weeks. School had by then settled down to the normal routine characterized by a full green bag and a haggard expression. We were only too eager to find the neck pres- sure points of anyone who should even think an unflattering thought about our chosen school, but, oh, what we said among ourselves! Homelessons drove us to dis- traction, and only club activities kept us in tune with the motto 'Sana mens sano in corpore.' By the way, contrary to a general belief among the girls, the floors of the Tech Roller Skating Rink are not built with inner springs and cushioned with rubber. Take my word for it! But despite the grueling life we led, we felt experienced as we climbed the stairs to our homerooms and looked with superior disdain at the childish sixth classmen. "The performance of 'Imaginary In- valid' in Collins Hall revealed our forebod- ings even then of future association with that 'intriguing' C?l language, French. The groans that accompanied the Invalid's dis- paraging remarks about Latin! We cer- tainly agreed! lib fi'-"i-' ll-! K U pl, , Q ' 'FY Q , f' fl' v l Q A . 6-fzf dr 'I Q y Q' f !L -2 5 5 fa I PJ?- "Spring and open windows brought a new delight - the strains of Helen For- rest's 'The Man I Love' with that James man on the trumpet, or, a long, low whistle with a background of radio school howls. And those boys had the strongest toes! We'd see them at any hour of the day hanging out the windows by their feet alone." "Boys?" interrupted the King, who had returned after a withering scolding, "I thought G. L. S. was a girls' school." "Oh that," sighed Alice - "A high, bolted fence kept any wondering souls from wandering too far. Not until we were graduated to 4A did we fully appreciate the rewards of suffering two extra years for our diploma. That blessed first music period! We stared at the new unsure 4B's, giggled inelegantly, and then prepared them for the worst. School was wickedg we had seven hours of homework a night: the teachers had long willow switches they ap- plied at appropriate moments! Gloatingly we revealed the Nero-ish qualities of our facultyg the 4B's were weak and trembling! But, mirabile visu, they staggered through the first two months with not a lash mark to be found on their fair bodiesg and, by the first of January, we were dashing side by side, elbow C4A'J against rib C4BD to the Taffy Apple and 'Snowball' man, slam- ming Johnson's doors in each other's re- spective noses, and performing other well- known acts of endearment. Who can forget Nancy Vahey treating some poor soul whose glazed eyes and famished look betrayed a l31l lunch period spent copying her best friend's Latin paper? "The gym about this time was a very 'hush-hush' place. The sophomores could not understand the mysterious gesticula- tions made by the juniors, the freshmen would immediately contact an Indian club, should they peep around the corner, and the seniors -well the seniors were their omnipotent selves, and one did not have to be reminded twice of the dire results, should one try to practise basketball some lunch period. Why all these weird precautions, King? The gym meet was approaching! With determined zeal and long suffering cooperation we marched obliquely, about faced, inter-marched, came down by sixes - our heads whirling with a thousand and one orders we had to remember. We strained the thirty odd muscles in our sto- machs on cheers, we stayed until five-o'clock decorating our fioat and basket, we prayed and wept and enjoyed it all immensely. But somehow seniority prevailed again. With bereaved hearts and scalding thoughts di- rected at Mr. Hapgood, who read the awards, we nursed our thwarted genius. Next year we'd show them, we thought." "And then what happened?" asked the King. "Well," said Alice, and paused to adjust her flamingo more securely under her arm, "in September, of 1943 that is, We entered the Sophomore year, and did we show the Queen a thing or two." "What Queen?" asked the King blankly. "Why the Queen in Looking Glass Land," answered Alice. "She asked me ever so many silly questions that I couldn't answer, until I asked if she could prove two triangles congruent. That is geometry, you know," said Alice patronizingly as she glimpsed the dazed look on the King's face. "Then in November the first Junior Town Meeting was presented. The ques- tion was: 'Should the Government Sub- sidize College Education?' It was of great interest to us all," said she seriously. "We also missed a whole week of school because of rationing." The King, to hide his ig- norance of these matters, kept silent. "In April," continued Alice, pausing only long enough to hit Hedgie with her wiggling flamingo, "the seniors, juniors, and some of my classmates, too, Went to Boston Garden for the big Gym Demon- stration. It was a great success." "Jim who?" asked the King. Ignoring the ques- tion, Alice went on to tell about her own school Gym Meet. "The seniors won, of course, and we came in last as usual," sighed Alice. "G. L. S. did succeed in iiy- ing the Minute Man Flag that month." "J une and vacation." Alice's thoughts flew back to those glorious summer days. "Is that all?" asked the King return- ing from a futile chase after his hedgehog. "Oh, no," replied Alice smiling indul- gently. "In September I entered the junior year. How wonderful we felt as we ap- plauded the seniors, knowing that in one short year, we, too, should be seniors, es- pecially when we ordered our rings." Here Alice was interrupted by the Queen storm- ing at the King for his lack of attention to the game. "A ring, my dear," said the King re- turning after a miserable attempt at hitting his hedgehog, "let me see it." Alice proudly showed her ring. The King politely ad- mired it but secretly felt that his own were far handsomer. "By October the school had settled down to the regular routine. The Athen- ian Club Halloween party was held on Octo- ber 27. The Dramatic Club play, 'Is my Face Red?' was highly entertaining. After the play everyone enjoyed the traditional cider and doughnuts." "Cider and doughnuts? I like cider and doughnuts," said the King brightening. There was a short pause while the King and Alice vainly tried to separate their battling hedgehogsg then Alice resumed her absorbing tale of life at G. L. S. "In December, ever so many interest- ing things happened. At the Christmas Assembly a religious pageant was pre- sented. It was very well acted, and we were proud of our classmates. "O King, dear," asked Alice sweetly, "were you ever in a play?" "Eh? er, no," mumbled the King, "Pm afraid not. My memory, you know. Well, go on with your story." "After vacation we began to study a very interesting period in history, the reign of Augustus Caesar. Don't you think the Romans are fascinating, King, dear?" "I never heard of them," muttered the King distractedly tugging at his crown. "It's probably just as well," thought Alice to herself. "In March the Glee Club presented its annual concert entitled 'Our Country in Song and Dance! The program included songs and dances from the Pilgrims to the E321 present day. The dancers and soloists in colorful costumes supplemented the Glee Club numbers." "We have a Glee Club, too," said the King, "and if they don't make us merry, the Queen has them executed." "In May we had our Gym Meet again," she continued. "It was a humiliating exper- ience for us. We were awarded third place. Even fourth place would have been better than third. We could have blamed it on a jinx then. We recovered from the blow, however, and June quickly drew to a close. The golden summer was before us at last." As the recital of her junior year ended Alice entered the game again attempting to roll her hedgehog through an arch. However, her flamingo had that irritating habit of twisting around at the very last minute to look into her face, and contin- ually spoiled her aim. "Tell me," said the King when Alice returned, "did you ever really get to be a senior?" "Oh, yes!" sighed Alice happily. "In September I again sat in the familiar hall, but this time my classmates and I marched out triumphantly to the applause of the lower classes. We were keyed up to such a high pitch of excitement that the an- nouncement that school would be dismissed after registration came as an anti-climax. We seniors threw ourselves into lessons and extra-curricular activities. What's that?" and Alice jumped as a tinkling sound reached her ears. "Oh, nothing. The Duchess' footman just dropped his eyeglasses," said the King. "It reminds me of chemistry class," said Alice wistfully. "Why should it remind you of chemis- try?" queried the King who had absolutely no idea of what chemistry was. "Why, the breaking glass, of course. We couldn't go through a Lab period with-- out breaking a few test-tubes or bottles." "Oh!" said the King intelligently. "At the Halloween party the Dramatic Club presented a play called 'The Weird Sistersf It was very goodg we never sus- pected we had such actresses in our midst. "Gradually howls of dismay began to echo and re-echo through the halls of G. L. S. as we, the seniors, received our proofs," said Alice. "Maybe we were laboring under delusions in regard to our beauty. Have you ever had your picture taken, King?" "Yes," sighed the King. "I had to sit E33 l so stifiiy with that heavy crown on my headg it was terrible." "In December," continued Alice, "wc had our Senior Tea. We seniors all came beautifully dressed, looking like human beings for once. I didn't have to wear my hair like this, either," said Alice, tossing back her long straight hair scornfully. "Well, it does resemble pulled taffy," said the King, eyeing Alice's golden tresses. "It was a wonderful Tea, and in spite of our first nervousness, we soon relaxed and enjoyed it. Oh, I almost forgot," cried Alice, "I must tell you about the Classical Club Christmas Party. Most of us went dressed as Romans, and the refreshments resembled Roman delicacies. The whole club was entertained by myths done in pan- tomime by several of our classmates. What fun!" "Excuse me, my dear," the King said. "I see it is my turn to play again." "Just before the February vacation," Alice resumed her story when the King returned, "the senior class play, 'The Pow- der Puif Gir1,' was presented. It was a smash hit. We thought it quite profes- sional." "Anything more?" the King asked as Alice's silence continued. "No," she said sorrowfully. "During the vacation I fell down the Rabbit's hole and here I am. If I don't get out I'm afraid I'll never be able to finish the story." Just then the Queen came flying by in a rage as usual, and dragged the King Off with her. As he went, the King turned back and winked solemnly at Alice. "Happy Landing!" called back the King, so pleased with his joke that he did not even feel the ear tweaking that his Queen was giving him. And Alice, bemused, stood where he had left her, seeing herself walking se- renely across the platform among her class- mates, and, while striving for a graceful exit, likely as not falling down the stairs. PATRICIA FERROLI MARIE PRITCHARD 65,661 Qarty "Well," said Alice turning to her hosts after the tea had been poured, "this has been a lovely tea party, but nothing, abso- lutely nothing, compared to the one I went to last week." "Humph," said the Hatter and March Hare in one breath. "Ditto," squealed the Dormouse. Alice paid no attention to them. "Why, that Christmas tea that the Girls' Latil School seniors had for their teachers was just so much fun - and oh, so grown-up!" Alice hopped up and down, bobbing her fair hair with glowing satisfaction. The Hatter's curiosity was beginning to be aroused, but not wishing to show it, he pulled out his day-telling watch, which had stopped the Monday before, and asked Alice what day it was. "Let's see, it was on December 14, a Friday afternoon, at 2.3O." "That wasn't what I -" But Alice continued. "And you should have seen the pretty invitations and cor- sages the teachers had. They were made by Irene Roman, Grace Kiley, Daphne Riska, and Leila Kirshen. The male teachers had the tinkliest little silver bell corsages ever seen this side of tomorrow." At this, the March Ha-re, who loved anything that made noise, took notice, and gruflly ventured, "S' that all? - no decora- tions?" "Oh, but wait till I finish," Alice ex- claimed. "The Statue of Minerva, you know, the one on the platform, was con- verted into jolly Old Saint Nick himself, with flowing robe and beard, and merry eyes - all artistically planned by Daphne Riska and Leila Kirshenf' At the mem- ory of the gay decorations, Alice's eyes twinkled, too. The Mad Hatter couldn't control his interested self any longer, trying to be very casual, he said, "A tea party without stories is as mitfizzing as those which Dormouse tells. Mitfizzing - thaL's a new word I picked up - found it in the bottom of a well -- must use it. Well, speak up. What about the stories?" And with this, he turned away from Alice and poured hot tea on Dormouse's nose to wake him up. -,.. A E341 "Mine was delightful, yes, delightful," murmured Dormouse in his sleep. "But not quite as delightful," Alice answered, "as the entertainment presented by Mistress of Ceremonies, Catherine Vakarg chairman, Joy Dorfman, and co- chairman Muriel Goldberg. Why, Hatter, there was even a pantomime, 'The Miracle of St. Nicholas,' with the singing all in French." The Hatter's eyes popped at this. "The applause for directress, Katherine Welch, leadingj lady, Mary Clifford, and the players sounded like a hundred much- nesses falling on the moon - oh, dear, did I say that - mother will never recognize me when I get home. Well, to get back to the tea - there was music, too. Such artists as Barbara Lomax, Abigail Caplan, and Helen Lelecas, three piano virtuososg Charlotte Rothberg and Esta Greenberg, delightful duetersg Barbara Smythe, Estelle Berman, Barbara Enman and Joy Dorfman, quartet, were on the program. And, Dor- mouse CDormouse yawned in acknowledg- mentl, there was story telling, too. The stories of Saint Nick were told in a won- derfully Christmasy way by Lois Carlisle, Elizabeth Hoag, and Barbara Mahoney." S., rfb! O04 GOV qs By this time Dormouse was almost awake, and between pinches from the March Hare and the Mad Hatter was able to re- mark, "But you can't feast on entertain- ment alone, can you, my friends?" Hatter and March Hare were just about to nod their heads in agreement when Alice exclaimed, "Why then, Sybil Green is just the person you would have appre- ciated. With the help of busy committee girls, Barbara Shafran, Irene Weiner, Joanne Prives, Barbara Reisner, Cynthia Marks, Esta Greenberg and Sandra Rowe, she made dainties Iit for the Red Queen. There were multi-colored and multi-flavored hors-d'oeuvres, the fanciest of cakes and cookies, and steaming hot wassail, the pun- gentest and spiciest drink I ever tasted. And pleasantest of all, there was a warm and gay feeling and everyone looked, oh, so pretty. Thanks for your hospitality but I guess I'll go back to Latin School." Alice sweetly curtsied and twirled away. The Dormouse fell asleep and slipped under the table and the Hatter shouted for them to move on to the next place in hopes that he'd find some hors-d'oeuvres there. PR fi f x!

"' Q1 ,,'f 9 Kgs. e u f,, E351 Glass Essay SOME HUMAN VALUES IN A CLASSICAL EDUCATION In the labyrinth of reconversion the thread which will lead man from bewilderment to clear thinking is education. It is the magical word pointing the road to world harmony. Everywhere educators are seeking to discover what type of high school as well as college education will best produce a people fitted to face the problems of a complex civilization. An important group of these educators is the Harvard Committee, who in its report on "General Edu- cation in a Free Society" explains education as "not merely the imparting of knowledge but the cultivation of certain aptitudes and attitudes in the mind of the young . . . Education looks both to the nature of knowledge and to the good of man in society . . . Education should aim at the good man, the good citizen, and the useful man." That such an aim is not new can be proved by recalling the purpose of education as set forth by Thomas Jefferson. He believed the purpose of education to be: "To form the statesmen, legislators, and judges, on whom public prosperity and individual happiness are so much to depend, To expound the principles and structure of government, the laws which regulate the intercourse of nations, those formed municipally for our own govern- ment, and a sound spirit of legislation, which, banishing all arbitrary and unnecessary restraint on individual action, shall leave us free to do whatever does not violate the equal rights of anotherg To harmonize and promote the interests of agriculture, manufacture, and commerce, and by well-informed views of political economy to give a free scope to the public industryg To develop the reasoning faculties of our youth, enlarge their minds, cultivate their morals, and instill into them the precepts of virtue and order: To enlighten them with mathematical and physical sciences, which advance the arts and administer to the health, the subsistence, and comforts of human life: And, generally, to form them to habits of reflection and correct action rendering them examples of virtue to others, and of happiness within them- selves." How has our Latin school course helped us to meet these aims of education? It has acquainted us with the past through our study of the history of ancient peoples. Egypt, Babylonia, Assyria, Persia, Phoenicia, Palestine, Greece, and Rome have all had lessons to teach us which will make us better and more useful citizens. After studying the contributions of these people to the art, archi- tecture, literature, religion, philosophy, and sciences of the world, youth cannot help realizing the values of every race in building the world and tearing it down. l36l This knowledge gives him the ability to judge a man by his own merits and not by his color, creed, or nationality. In this way youth will be accustomed to probe, to reason out, to sift all the sides of a question before he presumes to form an opinion. In practical applications he can reach a decision without bigotry or intolerance. Ralph Waldo Emerson in his essay on "Self Reliance" said: "Most men have bound their eyes with one or another handkerchief and attached themselves to some . . . communities of opinion." Youth must tear off the bandage that has bound the eyes of previous generations. His education can and will teach him why. The history of peoples bewilderedly grasping at the wrong ideas or trying to solve problems without thought will open his eyes to the fact that decisions require study, penetrating thought, and an unclogged mind. Instead of hiding a new doctrine of government in a closet, youth must bring it out, lay it on a table for all to see, and examine it thoroughly. With his open mind, discrimination, and reason, he will be able to dissect it, probing and analyzing fairly its claims, its practicability, its advantages, its service. The study of Latin has also helped us meet these aims of education. In translating from the original masterpieces of literature one gains a deeper appreciation of human nature. In the study of Vergil, for example, the student meets the tragic and the heroic, the pathetic and the humorous, all stirring his imagination with vivid pictures of action, passion, and thought, and teaching him the power of discrimination. Having been taught to think clearly and to differentiate between sound and unsound, true and false, he will be a better and more useful citizen. What is true of Latin is true of English literature and modern languages. The latter have the added values of enabling one to understand better the nations of today. Science and mathematics should not be overlooked as important factors in fundamental education. In mathematics, the student develops methods of scientific thinking, powers of analysis and logic, and the ability to apply in a practical way his knowledge. Science keeps him alert and interested in dis- coveries that may change his whole life. No one would claim that only those taught in a classical high school are entirely prepared for the future and have covered all the necessary ground. In fact, schools of this type are generally deficient in the instruction of the fine arts. Yet that type of instruction stands firm only on the strong foundation that a classical education can give. Once the essential qualities of a trained mind are attained, the practical and the artistic can be learned more easily and retained with much more profit. A classical education does provide these essential qualities. It fulfills the requirements of education as defined by the Harvard Committee. Through its imparting of knowledge, this education does cultivate certain aptitudes and attitudes in the mind of the young 3 it does look both to the nature of knowledge and to the good of man in societyg and, most important of all, a classical education does aim at and produce the good man, the good citizen, and the useful man.

Its brassy din for six dark years assailed Our ears, but marching feet and booming guns No longer chant their litany of death. The soft, almost forgotten strains of Peace Now fill the air with long-awaited notes Of Joy and Hope to cheer the saddened hearts And lift the spirits of a war-torn world. All night we stood afraid and shaken by The thunder of the cannonade, when lo! Upon the crest of every eastern hill Appeared the first faint glow that promise gave Of brightness for the morn. It freed our souls. The beauty of the dawn at last had brought The day for whose accomplishment men spent Long precious years in blood and agony. Ring out, ye trumpets! Roll, ye drums! Join now In harmony to play the strains that surge From out the hearts of men who've learned again To smile, and children who have lost their fear. The youth of Poland, France and Russia, Greece And England, boys from Utah and Chunking - These our defenders were. These made the song! Sing now their song, oh happy lands, whose fields Once blest by their first steps now wear their peace With tribute meet remember these thy sons. Mourn not the brave who died in seeking peace, For they have reached their goal and by their quest Have gained for you, so long as you shall need, What is their own for an eternity. Now we, the Youth, must build in this new day, So that our sons may never undergo The pain and heartaches of a world at warg Must carry out the dreams of youths who saw Beyond the fiaming holocausts of war To a tomorrow free from fear and pain. As tributes to the heroes brave who fought And sacrificed life for democracy Men go about to build great monuments. But, if these dead could speak, they would not ask For lofty shafts of chiseled stone that break In silent ruins with the passing years. Their monuments should be enduring Peace, Which must be built of precious elements - Of Love and Kindness toward our fellowmen, Of Faith in them that grows more firm with time. A world like this, a world of Peace and Hope, Is Youth's great challenge and its duty, too. Sing out, then, in your million tongues, Oh, Youth, And let your song resound around the world!

L. S., and realizing reluctantly that the time has come for us to pass on, hereby do ordain and establish this, our last will and tes- tament. After the payment of a debt of one cent to Mrs. Fennessey for the ink used herein, we bequeath and devise all our remaining possessions as follows: To Miss Glennon and to Miss Schubarth, in memory of all the 3A classes that have ever suffered in Room 25, we leave a thermostat.

To Miss Armstrong, we leave our compassion, and a class that will win the gym meet at least once during its four year course. To. Mr. Tierney, we devise a wad of cotton batting, in the firm belief that he knows the best way to use it. I To Miss Moreland, in recognition of her distress, we leave a book of geometry tests guaranteed to pass all seniors, or its purchase price refunded. And in the all too probable event that such a refund be necessary, we can request only that with the monye thereby gained Miss Moreland buy herself a big bouquet for trying so hard anyway. To Miss Harding, for her tireless work on the lunch counter committee, we leave one lettuce sandwich. To Miss O'Connor, we leave the post of Presidential adviser to which- ever of her inspired American history students first attains the highest office in the land.

To Miss McNamara, for her years of close confinement in Room 2, we leave a vacation trip to the wide open spaces. To Mr. Tobey, we leave a six foot square reproduction of page 92, in color, to hang in the front of the laboratory, thereby saving all the future chem- istry classes much time, trouble, and supposed stupidity. To Miss Watson, we leave an underpass from Room 11 to the office, so she won't be trampled every day at the beginning of lunchtime by hordes of hungry students. To Mr. Williams, we leave a tintype.

To Miss Murphy and to Miss Keeler, we bequeath a lifetime subscrip- tion to a special Superman Comics Magazine, all dialogue to be in Latin, in the hope that sixth class interest in the language may thereby be stimulated. To Miss Flaherty, we leave an extra school day, to consist entirely of seventh periods, during which her senior class, in accordance with her frequently expressed desire, may take an intensive course in remedial mathematics. That Room 30 may really attract attention as a classical center, we leave to Miss Stark a large picture of that modern Orpheus, Frank Sinatra.

To our pile of memories, we leave this memorable day. And due to Miss Tahmizian, we leave like young ladies. DIANE FINN, Chief Executor Witnesses to the Class of 546: Boston Public Latin School, Classes of '45, '44, and '43. f43l lass Spropbecy Lizard rolled over and yawned, a lan- guid, sleepy yawn. "What's the use?" he thought. "It may be this year, next year, sometime or never. For ten years I've been sitting at the bottom of this rabbit hole, waiting to welcome the other three Latin School Girls to Wonderland. Any other gatekeeper would have crawled home to supper long ago." With this thought, Lizard pushed his head under a piece of moss and went to sleep. -lb 'lt -JG "Ah-h-h-oo-oo-ee-ee!" BUMP, and we landed in a confused heap at the bottom of the rabbit hole. Lizard open one eye, and said, "I don't suppose you girls know of a more graceful way of sliding into a rabbit hole?" "I don't suppose we do," retorted Daphne, "and besides, no one asked your opinion on the matter." Just like all the rest of them," mum- bled Lizard, "rude, impertinent, awk- ward-" "What's that you're muttering?" asked Betty Lou, as she shook the pebbles out of her shoes. "I was just saying a welcome to you," said Lizard, "and thinking to myself that it's about time you arrived. Goodness knows, you have taken long enough about it." "That's what I've been telling them," piped up Harriet. "We're not long enough. Ever since we ate those sugar-plums on the way down, we've been getting progres- sively shorter. And," she finished with a wail, "as if I were not short enough already. Oh, jimminy!" Sure as the world, we were growing smaller. As we shrank, Lizard seemed to become larger and larger. "I never realized that my feet were quite so big, but looking at them from this angle, oh, dear, . . ." groaned Betty Lou. At this point Lizard began rolling over and over, doubled up with laughter. "Don't be so surprised. It happens to everyone, you know," and he added, "How did you expect to get into Wonderland if you stayed as tall as you were?" We confessed that we hadn't thought of that. "Of course not," replied Lizard, "who ever heard of a Girls' Latin School student thinking? Tommyrot! Anyway, now that you're here, I'll let you in and get ready for dinner." This evidently meant that Lizard had fulfilled his obligations, and we were to enter Wonderland on our own. The last time we saw him, he was crawling into a puddle with his scrub brush, singing a simplified version of 'Super Suds'! Then, without further delay, we pushed Daphne through the doorway and wriggled through after her into Wonderland. Before us and around us lay what seemed to be a tiny village, although, in our shrunken state, we considered it quite a normal size. Directly in front of us was the main street, which was lined with very startling buildings. As we ambled along, we were accosted by two sentries who jumped at us from opposite sides of the street. We began excitedly to explain that we had come away without any money and could not pay the toll they asked, when we recognized them as Sybil Green and Esta Greenberg. Greatly relieved, we inquired what they were doing here. "Oh, nothing much," Esta replied. "We collect the toll, but since very few people go by, we don't take in a great deal of money." "The toll is the only source of income the town has," Sybil explained. "But then, our salaries are the only expenditures, so things even off quite nicely." They told us that we would most likely meet some of our old G. L. S. pals here, since the place was literally overrun with them. Eagerly we wandered on. On a large glass building nearby, there was a sign which read: "The Cummings and Cum- mings Amalgamated Atom Smashing Co." Inside, Virginia and Mary Cummings were smashing atoms before an actually stunned audience. Nancy Beaton and Joan Hynes stood by recovering any Neptunium or Plu- tonium which happened their way. Eliza- beth Hamer and Elaine Helman were busy recovering the stray electrons and popping them into their little asbestos-covered bas- kets. On the other side of the room, Barbara Connell sat on top of a step ladder as she read aloud from Marmaduke Mathias Maximilian's book, Magic Mysterial. lI44l One look was enough, and, dodging a nucleus here and there, we ducked out the door. From the next building, which looked rather like a teacup turning upside down, we heard strains of music. Glancing in, we found a concert in progress. Nancy Narnansky and Charlotte Rothberg were at the pianos, Irene Snchecki at the violin, and Barbara Caliri at the accordion. The Barbaras, Smythe and Enrnan were the vocalists. The Mock Turtle was conducting the performance, standing on a high pedes- tal and waving his front fiappers. Catch- ing sight of Patricia Ferroli collecting tickets, and remembering that We were penniless, we moved on down the street. New discoveries awaited us. On a nearby billboard flashed the dazzling smile of Marie Martin in an advertisement for "Toothydent" toothpowder. A newsboy passed by calling, "Extral Extra! Big croquet match in honor of the queen! Read all about it! Get your Wonderland Gazette right here! Extra!" By this time Betty Lou had discovered a couple of pennies in her pocket, and so we bought a copy of the paper. Across the top was stated that it was "Written, Compiled, Edited, Published, and Read by Lucy Mannelianf' We were just about to read the leading article on the croquet contest when Bill the Crocodile scurried past, calling to us to hurry to the square, where there was a baseball game in progress. We rushed after him, arriving just in time to see Eileen Tessier bat a ball into the bleachers and hit Barbara Sullivan., the well-known inventor of "Sullivan's slip- less shoes for slippery streets." Jean 0'Brien, who, incidentally, had designed the park, dragged her off Cby means of the never-to-be-forgotten man-carryl to the hospital financed and run by Dorothy Fitz- gerald. Looking around we saw an attractive dress shop across the street. Joining the crowd we entered. Inside, we found a fashion show in progress. One of the girls, who was modeling a dress "to be worn while playing croquet with the queen," resembled Carita Coleman very closely. We were dis- cussing the similarity when the fashion commentator trotted in. Immediately the chattering of the buyers ceased, and all listened intently for her observations. speak, we recognized voice, and we knew When she began to Madeline Arnrheinis immediately how she came to be considered an expert on fashion. She spoke so quickly and with such conviction that everyone thought that she surely must know what she was talking about, although they them- selves didn't quite understand. From her lightning-like stream of chatter we gath- ered that the Duchess Yvonne Apsit was the creator of the fashions which we were being shown. Soon tea was served. That is, the teacups were passed around, and we all stood in line at the Water fountain to fill our cups with oyster stew. As we were waiting our turn, We noticed Helen West standing at one side, scribbling busily in a notebook. She told us that she was fashion editor of the "Mirror," Sarah Siegel being the owner and chief editor. It was published in Latin, every other month, Fraedelle Wallack being the editor in charge of grammar. Janet Rollins, as edi- tor of the domestic section, was quite clever at giving hints on "How to Knit Argyle Socks with Orange Toes while preparing a Dinner of Shrimp Wiggle and Chocolate Mousse." We finally filled our cups with oyster stew, and as we were looking around for a place to sit, we caught sight of Patricia Devlin and Sally Doherty at the other end of the salon. As we hurried up to them, we noticed that they were sitting on their hats, instead of on chairs. To be sure, as 39.19-. E451 we looked around, everyone else was doing the same. The chairs on which we had been seated during the performance had disap- peared. Since we had left our hats at home, we sat on the floor. Pat told us that she was secretary to the Mock Turtle, and spent her time recording his autobiography. Sally was the receptionist for the Mad Hatter. Since the Hatter had had a quarrel with time a few weeks before, and it was now always six o'clock, she spent most of her time sending out invitations for tea. As we rose to go, Sally handed us an invitation to tea with the Mad Hatter, which we promised to accept. We were stepping out of the store when we bumped into Davida Hotz, who was studying her watch and muttering to her- self as she rushed past us. We hurried after her to see what she was saying. As we got closer we heard her say, "Oh, my stars and planets! It's a month later than I thought! The queen will be furious if I'm late." Deciding that we'd better not bother her, we turned down a little side street. J ust as we rounded the corner, we ran into Joanne Prlves, who was walking' slowly along Cunusual for Joanneb, staring at nothing at all, and talking excitedly. We soon learned that she was composing extra verses to Lewis Carrol1's Jabberwocky, to be used by those who forget their theo- rems in geometry classes. She was on her way to a famous publisher of the series, Helps and Hindrances to Learning. We were interested to hear that this benefac- tor of scholars was our G. L. S. classmate, Barbara Reisner. As she meandered away, Joanne motion- ed to the display window of a nearby book- store. Here were many books published by Barbara. Virginia Varteresian's best seller, How to Recite Virgil in Latin Class by Means of Mental Telepathy, Maria Sur- ette's geometric novel, How to Form the Plural of Radius and Locus, Joan O'Neil's unabridged version of the modern diction- ary, with oversized words and definitions, l 46 and featuring the correct spelling of D. D. T., and Grace Kiley's Jokes Thought up during Chemistry Periods were all on display. We turned from the window just in time to see Patricia McCulloch climbing up a large tree. She called down to us not to make a sound, or we might frighten the Cheshire Cat, which she was chasing. Be- fore we could answer, a fire truck came around the corner, with Lois Paradise at the wheel. Hilda Hansen jumped down from the back, and having quickly erected a ladder, held it while Patricia and the cat climbed down. Thereupon they all climbed onto the truck again, and with a clang of the bell they were off. Just as we were wondering what weird thing would happen next, Rose Kurhan and Sandra Rowe jumped out from behind a mushroom. "Now, girls," they cried, "you know they were due last Christmas, and without your contribution Ann G'avin's Nature Lovers' Society will go to pot. Remember, you've got the whole weekend to think about itg so don't forget to bring your bugs on Monday." On linishing this unexpected oration, Rose and Sandra both dashed down the street after an unusually large purple caterpillar. We then turned into a nearby artist's stu- dio because Daphne wondered what kind of art they had in this confusing Wonderland. Inside, we found Cynthm Marks busy at an easel. As we glanced at the sketches hanging on the walls we realized that Cynthia's specialty was architectural de- signing as well as interior decorating. She told us that she had just finished a set of plexi-glass houses with atomic fabrics used in the interiors. These she had made public through Drusilla Wells' "We Hound You until You Advertise " agency. As we were talking, Abigail Caplan ran in to ask Cynthia to repaint her book cov- ers. Abigail, it seems, was hard at work thinking up questions to trap Professor Einstein and other experts. Whenever she ran out of ideas, she had Cynthia repaint l her bookcovers, and then she went at it again. Since they had to decide whether the books should be a mustard color with pink spots or pink stripes this time, we excused ourself and left. We were once more on the street when we heard a voice behind us say, "Fm SO happy." We knew instantly that it must be Carol Popp, and so it was. She was de- lighted to see us, and told us all the latest news. She said that Barbara Lomax was a judge now, and Marion Kohr a skillful law- yer. She had read in the Gazette that Marion had been the attorney for the de- fense when the Knave of Hearts had been accused of stealing the tarts. The case had come up before Barbara just the week before. Another item of interest was that Mary Joan Cronin had become a famous scientist, and now spent her time defying the Law of Gravity. As soon as Carol had left us, we started for the seashore. Scarcely had Wwe gone a little way along the beach, when we heard a melancholy song, intermingled with long, heavy sobs. Rounding the bend, we saw Greta Jones and Sally Ann Ferry doing a Lobster Quadrille with the Mock Turtle. "Two lines," cried the Mock Turtle. "Clear away' the jelly 'fish and away we go- Two head lobsters cross over, And by your gentleman pause. Two side lobsters cross over, And all join claws. Honor -yourf corner lobster, Swing your partner more, Dosados to your partner, And promenade the shore. After the first six measures, the three went skipping down the beach, and dis- appeared over the horizon. "My! times do change," said Betty Lou. While we stood there wiggling our toes in the sand, we suddenly caught the famil- iar 'drone of "Amo, amas, amat," coming from behind a pile of brown seaweed. Our first thought was to run in the opposite di- rection, but our second thought was to find out why Virginia D'Arcy was reciting Latin. There she was, her Latin class spread before her - ten of the biggest, brightest oysters we had ever seen. And that was not all. Further down the beach we saw Barbara Shafran with all the little oysters, who were playing In and Out the Windows. We decided to leave Virginia and Bar- bara to their oysters, and continued down the shore. Having proceeded only a little way, we came across Joyce Gandle, who was writing in the sand with her toe. Joyce had been around the world, and was now writing her autobiography, The Universe and How I Love It. Every time she fin- ished a chapter, however, thetide would rise, and wash it away. While we stood there, trying to think of something comforting to say to Joyce, the Dormouse and the March Hare came run- ning up to inform us of the premier of Macbeth at Ye Old Wonder Playhouse. Be- cause of a delay in changing rowboats, we didn't arrive until the Sleep Walking Scene. Mary Clifford, the charming and talented hostess, showed us to our seats. On the stage Leila Kirschen, as Lady Macbeth, was attempting unsuccessfully to clean spots off her hands with Duzn't, the new cleaning soap invented by Marie Bibilos. ' The whole first row was occupied by Marie Pritchard and her twelve children, including three pairs of twins. On our way out we passed a Red Cross booth. In one corner stood Esther Walder folding bandages, and in the other corner, Nadine Lane was administering First Aid to some unfortunate individual, who was so foolish as to come up the down stairway. On the street Vivian Schell skooted by on her combination air-land-sea-mobile, driven by jet propulsion. At the corner we saw the dazzling lights of the "local show," run by Norma Slade, which was featuring in technicolor Cdone mostly in black and bluesl a film starring Katherine Welch, entitled, "How to Fall Gracefully and Harmlessly to the Floor from a Standing Position." , , I f47:l Across the street in the pond of Wonder- land Common, we saw birds, rabbits, and ducks, riding in Dodo Boats, invented by Nancy Reynolds and Ruth Mann. Carrnella DiSciuiio was sitting on a rock with her sketchbook, while a walrus from a passing Dodo Boat threw peanuts to her. Over to one side a long streamer was strung up between two trees. Across the streamer in bright red letters were the words, "Vote for Lorraine Maclntyre for President and Mary Kane for Vice-presi- dent." As we stood there, wondering what ticket Lorraine and Mary were running on, Lor- raine Moran sped up to us on her roller skates, and said, "It's nearly six o'clock. Hurry!" Then she skooted away again. "What do you suppose is the matter with her?" said Daphne. "It's only two in the afternoon." "That's it," cried Betty Lou. "It's the Mad Hatter's tea party. Come on, girls." And so we started through the woods to the tea party. Soon a clearing appeared in the forest. In it stood a large table, where the Mad Hatter and March Hare were hav- ing tea. Between them slept Irene Roman, Louise Riordan, and the Dormouse. "When do you suppose they will wake up?" asked the Mad Hatter, as he looked longingly at their cold tea. "How should I know?" said the Hare. "They've been like that for the past ten years. Sleeping, drinking cold tea, sleep- ing, drinking cold tea, sleeping - -" "Oh, keep quiet, will you?" shouted the Hatter. "What difference does it make when they wake up? Who asked you, any- way?" "I think we ought to go before they see us," said Betty Lou. "I was just beginning to think the same thing myself," replied Harriet. "But look! The Hatter's stopped yelling. The guests are arriving. Come on. Let's go." In the confusion we slipped in without being noticed. At once our attention was I 48 attracted to the Mad Hatter, who rose from his chair, and screamed with all the dignity he possessed, "Quiet, quiet, and quiet. I am given the deepest pleasure and happi- ness in presenting to you, the Alumnae of Girls' Latin School, our speakers for this evening: Miss Dorothy Smith, Chairman of the International Federation of Women's Republican Clubs, and Miss Estelle Berman, founder and editor of the outstanding news- paper, A. M. Since Miss Smith is being en- tertained by the Queen this evening, we shall now hear from Miss Berman. Estelle, delighted for an excuse to spill her tea, jumped up, and began, "When we consider the integral relationships unques- tionably inherent in such a frame of ref- erence, it becomes conceivable that certain unnatural and unnecessary divergences, un- selfishly or objectively brought to external infiuences, or based on misconceptions of pure misunderstanding, in connection with these prejudices, it must of necessity . . ." "Daahlings," shrieked a voice from above, and down floated Diane Finn on a big green balloon. "I heard some of you were having a big tea party, and I just had to come. Met Catherine Valcar and Patricia Kerrigan on the way. They have built up a big free enterprise for mouse traps with lots of enterprising cheese. Catherine said that Irene Wiener is man- ager in charge of the foreign market, and Joan O'Connor has about brought the mousetrap to perfection through her work in the laboratory." By this time the Mad Hatter had shoved some tea in front of Diane and rose to make the following announcement: "Girls, girls, and more girls, it gives me deepest pleasure and happiness to announce that tea is over, and now if we adjourn to the next table, we shall be entertained by Joy Dorfman and her Travelling Performers." The curtain rose, a table collapsed some- where backstage, and Joy came flying out in her toga. "This afternoon, Dorfman Dramatics presents a repeat performance of Dido Faces Life, written and directed by J Margaret Murphy in her senior year at Latin School." As soon as Joy retreated from the stage, Barbara Wilson leapt into the air, and blew a mighty blast on her conch shellg the curtains parted againg and Dido CMargaret Murphyi sat alone, forgotten, the daisy without its buttercups. She stood there, looking at the Dormouse, and her large eyes filled with tears, but still she said noth- ing. Slowly, however, a deep, hollow hiccup escaped her parted lips, and she sobbed, "Aeneas once loved me . . ." These words were followed by a long silence. Then the chorus, composed of Connie Hartwell and Barbara Mahoney, continued with a con- stant, heavy moaning until the whole audi- ence had diluted their tea with tears. And thus ended a very successful teaparty. After reviving Daphne with a bottle of ammonia, we continued on our way. We had not gone far when we came across Judith Gordon and the Duchess, who were sitting in a juniper bush, and listening to Muriel Goldberg and Helen Lelecas as they played their first Piano Concerto in H. A few feet away we saw some paint cov- ered with Harriet Nelson Cor was it Harriet Nelson covered with paint?D. Anyway it seems that Harriet had just returned from the Queen's garden where she had been painting the white roses red - a job left unfinished by the gardeners on their execution day. Suddenly the Duchess jumped up and said, "I dare say you are coming to the croquet game at the palace?" "We weren't quite sure whether we dared to or not," replied Betty Lou, who was always rather doubtful about such matters. At that moment Jean Russo appeared with a tremendous cage of flamingoes and hedgehogs. "Come on, everybody. Get your mallets and balls for the croquet game." Scarcely had we obtained a flamingo and a hedgehog when the Queen came stomping up, and shouted, "Can you play croquet?" I 49 "Yes," we shouted back. "Come on then," roared the Queen. "Everyone else in your class is here." And so we joined the procession, wondering what would happen next. Out on the field Lois Carlyle, Marjorie McGee, Grace Fielding, and Arlene Gins- berg were taking the lead. Hedgehogs were rolling about everywhereg a few of the flamingos ran screeching off the field, and in a very short time people were run- ning about in all directions, tumbling up against each other. Suddenly Mary King appeared, mounted upon the Cheshire Cat, and carrying a big crate of medicine to bring everyone back to her senses. Things were finally straightened out. The Queen, feeling that she ought to say something sentimental at this inspiring moment, rose on her tiptoes, and thun- dered, "I propose a song to the Class of '46, Let us all join hands. Now everybody SING." " 'Twas brillig and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All minsy were the borogroves, And the mome raths outgrabef' While we stood there, singing, our hearts were filled with the happiness of reunion and the memories of Girls' Latin. Somehow we rather dreaded the thought of leaving this fantastic Wonderland. Slowly, however, familiar faces began to fade into the greyness of the evening, and with a sigh we turned to face the common- ness of reality. ELIZABETH L. Hom, lab DAPHNE RISKA, Icd HARRIET C.

First on the list is the subscription record. More people C9255 have sub- scribed to the Jabberwock this year than ever before! With this incentive the enthusiastic and proficient staff produced five issues of serious, informative, humorous and witty material. Fol- lowing two comparatively new practices, two Smooth Susans were chosen from the students of the school, and the Christmas issue did come out before Christmas. In addition, this year saw the Jabberwoclfs subscribers make it a still more integral part of their school life by contributing frequently and abundantly. Thus, it was through the whole-hearted co-operation between staff and subscriber that the Jabberwoclc passed a truly successful year. Lucy Manuelian was the editor and Miss Tahmizian was the helpful and tactful adviser. E531 fgtlvenian lub For over thirty years the Athenian Club has led the way in social and cultural activities for all students of G. L. S. The various departments of the organization-Art, Current Events, Dramatic, Literary, and Music Appreciation -are open to all members and present an unusual opportunity for the girls to discover and develop their talents. Leisure time is well spent when a girl joins the Athenian Club. The season of 1945-46 opened at Halloween with the annual gala "get- acquaintedn party. Although seriously handicapped by the weather, the Mid- Winter Dance was also very successful, both socially and financially. "Powder Puff Girl," the first public play produced since the beginning of the war, and a spring fashion show were other major social attractions. For the cultural side of the activities monthly open meetings, sponsored by the various clubs, were held. In this way each member was given an opportunity to acquaint herself with the different departments in the organization. The popularity of these meetings was evidenced by the large attendance and enthusi- astic response of the girls. The Athenian Club, its oflicers and members are deeply indebted to their faculty adviser, Miss Grace Heartz, and attribute any success the organization may have had to her patient and understanding guidance. Ofiicers for the current year are: President, Mary King: Vice-President, Helen Tucker, Secretary, Judith Gordon, Treasurer, Rose Kurhan. T541 Classical Club This year has shown the true interest of the girls in the Classics. The Classical Club was enthusiastically revived under the able and much appreciated guidance of Miss Stark. At the first meeting, an election of officers was held in which Esta Greenberg became Praeceps, Nancy Beaton, Pro-prwceps and Barbara Wilson, Scriba et Aerarii Praefectua. Plans were made that day, too, for the Christmas meeting, a Roman Saturnalia, which featured toga-clad girls, satires on Roman myths, punch and gingerbread cookie refreshments and the choosing of Roman names. Among the many projects undertaken by the girls was the furnishing of a miniature Roman house. When this was completed by the skillful hands of Cynthia Marks, Grace Kiley, and Irene Roman, it was put on display in Room 30 and aided us in setting the scenes for the story of Dido and Aeneas. An outstanding event during the season was a radio discussion on the subject, "Have the Classics a Place in Post-War Courses?". The problem was discussed by Dorothy Smith, Judith Gordon, and Esta Greenberg, with Rose Kurhan as mediator. The discussion was broadcast through Station W EEI on January 22, 1946. The girls of the Club take most pride in "The Classical Corner," which has been established in Room 30 in co-operation with the A. G. Simmons Classical Club Fund of former years. "The Classical Corner" consists of a display table, lamp, comfortable chair, and shelf to be used to stimulate more interest in the Classics at Girls' Latin School. A E551 In this, the first year of peace since that fateful Sunday, December 7, 1941, the Current Events Club, composed of seniors and juniors, launched a program designed to make its mem- bers more conscious of the problems facing the world in this post-war era. By round table discussions of such topics as The United Nations Charter, International Cartels, Relations between Labor and Capital, and other questions of vital importance, the Club sought to create a more intelligent understanding of world affairs. In addition, field trips were taken to a session of the Massachusetts State Legislature, where the girls saw government in action, and to the news rooms of the Herald-Traveler. The officers for this year included Margaret Murphy, Chairmang Diane Finn, Secretary: and Margaret Single, Treasurer. They were assisted by a program committee which included Estelle Berman, Barbara Enman, Katherine Welch, Hanni Erentheil, and Ann Gourdin. Miss O'Connor was the friendly, enthusiastic leader. E561 Gurrent 8"U67'lf5 Glub The Student Teacher Advisory Council, a representative group of students working with the faculty to promote the best interests of the school, has for its officers for the year: Presi- dent, Barbara Lomax 5 Vice-President, Margaret Singleg Secretary-Treasurer, Katherine Welch, Faculty Adviser, Miss Glennon. Along with its regular duties of supervis- ing fire drills and lunch room procedures, the S. T. A. C. continues to promote the sale of Vic- tory Stamps and Bonds, It is proud to announce that through its efforts and the whole-hearted co-operation of the faculty and students, Girls' Latin School purchased six hospital units by the sale of stamps and bonds during the 7th Bond Drive. These hospital units are evidences of Girls' Latin School's eagerness to help the wounded and disabled veterans who fought so courageously for America. The S. T. A. C. scholarship is open again this year to the Senior Who, in the estimation of the Council and Scholarship Committee, has given outstanding service to the School. E571 The Music Appreciation Club, this year, endeavored to present an adequately informative and well-rounded program of music and song from favorite operas and operettas. Some examples of their choices are Bizet's Carmen and Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. During the year, girls from all classes graciously lent their time and varied talents that the meetings might be all the more interesting. The Chairman of the Club was Charlotte Rothberg and the Club Spon- sor, Miss Mannix. i581 5Vfu5ic fqppreciation Glub Qlramatic lub The Dramatic Club under the direction of Miss Doyle as coach, with Mrs. Kittredge from Emerson College has been a source of great pleasure for all. Pantomimes, charades and monologues amused and instructed us at our monthly meetings. Mrs. Kittredge's delightful reminiscences and readings made the January meeting especially memorable. When the upper classes produced the hilarious three-act comedy, "Powder Puff Girl," capacity audiences filled Collins Hall both days of the performance. For the charming Spring Festival, the casts of three one-act plays included members from every class. Will anyone forget the gay party with which we concluded our year's activities? May the Dramatic Club of 1946-1947 carry on, en- riched, as We have been, by this year's experi- ences and pleasures Officers are: Joy Dorfman, Chairmang Margaret Maginnis, Vice-Chairmang and, Joanne Prives, Secretary-Treasurer. L59l literary Club The Literary Workshop members have spent their bi-monthly afternoons in cozy, fireside manner, discussing their favorite books and authors. They have dabbled in and studied classic and modern literature, Oriental writing and customs, and contemporary poets and novelists. The bibliography they com- piled of Girls' Latin School Alumnae authors, and their bright bulletin board in Room 10 afforded just the right amount of enjoyment and information for them. They visited the delightful Harvard Poetry Room, where they listened to poems as read by the authors themselves. Under Judith Gordon as chairman, Barbara Shafran, secretary-treasurer, and Miss Tahmizian, a most stimulating: guide, they have spent many an informal and pleasant hour. cgtlvletic cgssociation The Athletic Assiciation, under the direction of Miss Armstrong, offered a wide and varied program. Field hockey, tennis and baseball were the sports enjoyed by our outdoor girls. Deck tennis, basketball, swimming and badminton were indoor sports. Inter-class competition was carried on in all sports. High- lights of the year were the Christmas party, roller-skating party, and the various athletic tournaments. Officers of the club are: President, Eileen Tessierg Treas- urer, Marie Pritchard, Heads of Field Hockey, Daphne Riskag Baseball, Barbara Sullivan, Basketball, Arlene Ginsberg, Minor Sports, Marie Martin. .fa Cfercle grancazs l.u Fercle l"rzu1Qz1is at eu vette unnee Quatre reunions interessantes.

The crafts section made red wallets, which proved to be excellent Christmas gifts. The drawing class was under the able leadership of Lorraine Berner who encouraged the pupils to express their feelings through art. The various posters exhibited throughout the school have been, for the most part, products of this year's busy Art Club. f9Vlariners The Mariner Ship "Flying Cloud," under the able steering of Skipper Moreland, with First Mate Schubarth and Second Mate Armstrong, is sailing swiftly along in 1946, its fourth year of existence in G. L. S. Meetings are held once a month, with trips to nautical places of interest on the horizon. The watches take turns in planning smooth-sailing meetings and in performing school services. The Mariners are the nautical branch of Girl Scouts, and as such learn both Scout and Mariner lore. . Qrcbestra Under the very capable and conscientious direction of Mr. Trongone, the orchestra gave a public performance at the Christmas assembly. Part of the rehearsals held every Tuesday were devoted to preparations for the Class Day program. The orchestra has oEered girls of the school a chance to learn orchestral music of classical nature. Members of this organization are also given an opportunity to join the Boston Public School Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Trongone is looking forward to greater success when the orchestra reas- sembles next fall since only one senior - Irene Suchecki - will be lost by graduation. gted Gross Again this year the Junior Red Cross, under the guidance of Miss Mac- Namara, has been a credit to Girls' Latin School. The sophomores have taken the home nursing course, the seniors have completed the high school course in nutrition, and both juniors and seniors have studied First Aid in connection with their gymnasium work. Miss Stark's knitting group has made many pairs of New Havens that have merited praise from headquarters. At Christmas time, the girls contributed three hundred seventy gifts for servicemen. Sixty-eight dollars, collected in the annual drive, and sixteen dollars, proceeds from the Deck Tennis Tourna- ment, were submitted to the Red Cross. Officers at Red Cross headquarters have taken several opportunities to thank the girls for their splendid cooperation. Qlee Club The Glee Club, under the directorship of Mr. Daniel D. Tierney, again enjoyed a successful year. Besides the regular assembly programs some mem- bers performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in March. "Cherubim Song" by Tchaikovsky and Gounod's delightful "Dance of the Bacchantes" were rendered, in addition to "The Sandman's Song" and "Evening Prayer" from Humperdinck's opera, "Hansel and Grete1." "Sing To My Soul" from Walt Whitman's poem "The Mystic Trumpeter," which has been set to music by Mr. Wheeler Beckett, was also sung. In the spring the Glee Club presented excerpts from "Cavalleria Rusticana," "Babes In Toyland," and "Hansel and Gretel." Included in the cast were Barbara Enman and Barbara Smyth, in the title roles of Hansel and Gretel, and Muriel Goldberg, Marjorie McGee, Mary Clifford, Davida Hotz, Barbara Caliri, Patricia Ferroli, Estelle Berman and Joy Dorfman.
