Wings, appearing on the cover, represent our
flight to victory. This victory can and will be
obtained through the cooperation of the soldier
and civilian efforts.
Throughout the pages of this book, we wish
to bring to you this theme: Wings Over America.
Through the idea of wings, we are reminded of
the untiring effort of the men, women, and chil-
dren of today who are doing so much to boost
our morale and lead us onward to safety.
Each person is doing his part either by giving
his son or daughter to serve in the armed forces
of our country: by giving his own services work-
ing in defense factories or doing Red Cross work:
or by lending his money in buying War stamps
We begin our flight with a happy take-off
through four years of studious but yet enjoyable
work. While looking through the book, you will
find pages devoted to services rendered, club
activities, and patriotic performances. These
tasks were sincerely appreciated and will be
fondly remembered when recollected in the
The complete summary of our idea has been
so beautifully expressed in our own Declaration
of Independence: "We hold these truths to be
self-evident-that all men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Creator with certain
inalienable Rights, that among these are Life.
Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."
It is the sincere wish of the staff of 1943 that
the Ripper with Wings Over America will speed
your valuable and pleasant hours until the day

MILTON C POTTER
Superintendent of the Milwaukee
Public Schools 1914-1943
Mr. Milton C. Potter, who is retiring from the super-
intendency of Milwaukee Public Schools after
twenty-nine happy years, is a scholar, administrator,
friend ot children. Never have we read a more
beautiful tribute to Mr. Potter than the one written
forthe Music Pageant last year: "Through words and
works he has wedded together the three consolations
lett from Paradise: music, laughter, and the eyes of
a little child."
LOWELL P. GOODRICH
Milwaukee Public Schools
Mr. Lowell P. Goodrich, our superintendent-elect,
came to us as assistant superintendent from Fond du
Lac, where he had guided the public schools for
some fifteen years. He has the wisdom of experience
plus progressive ideas for the future. He is a man
of courage, vision, modesty, faith. Under his leader-
ship we shall move forward with confidence.

She walks untrammeled roads with beauty's ghost
Her kindliness untouched by sordid strife.
To daily duty, she is gracious host:
Her deep content enhanced her neighbor's lite.

There are two courses in Sewing: the trade
sewing for girls who wish to take more sewing
than other subjects, and the clothing which
every girl must take for one year. In the trade
course, the girls specialize in fine dressmaking.
They sew fine silks and draft their own pat-
terns. They also learn to drape materials
around a dress form. Then there is special train-
ing given in tailoring.
Many things are done in the sewing class
to help the war effort along. For instance, in
Miss Ray's power machine class, sixty night-

gowns tor the Red Cross were made and two
thousand eight hundred and titty white cooking
aprons, two thousand manual training aprons
were also made. The number ran up to fifty
pairs ot mine sweepers' gloves that were made
by the teachers.
At Easter time, the annual style show was
presented. In it, the girls modeled the dresses,
pajamas, and other articles of clothing they
made in school this year. The theme of the show
was a Victory garden. In the patriotic setting
the girls paraded, displaying their dresses to
the audience. Cloth conservation was stressed
by showing what should be done in sewing
during war time.

The school year of 1942 and 1943 has offered
a special challenge to the Homemaking De-
partment. lt takes great pride in being able
to meet this challenge and cooperate to the
fullest extent in the war effort by providing a
firm background of homemaking experience
to our future homemakers. Nutrition, it has
been said, ranks next in importance to military
preparedness. lt is startling to realize that
due to economic conditions, ignorance, and
faulty food habits only one-fourth of the Amer-
ican people are properly fed. With this prob-
lem in mind, the adequate substitutes to re-
place the dwindling supply of many foods and
the intelligent spending of the food budget to
insure a wholesome and balanced diet, has
been taught. The necessity for food conserva-

tion has been given prominence this year.
Many new problems had to be solved. The
first in mind was the rationing program. This
was especially discussed and illustrated in all
the Homemaking Departments, and an excel-
lent detailed exhibit explained the problem to
the entire school. The exhibit was placed in
the main hall near the office. Fresh fruits and
vegetables, canned foods, and also the un-
rationed packaged foods were displayed with
a chart showing the number of points needed
to purchase the rationed foods.
The Homemaking courses have helped pu-
pils to achieve their individual health objectives
by the selection of good meals in our cafeteria,
for their special luncheons, and in their own
homes. All Seniors serving their special lunch-
eons have given much care and thought in
planning appropriate war time menus. The

Making rolls in CI Homernaking class
The girls cxre proud ol this cxccomp-
cafeteria has emphasized the preparation and
the serving of more fresh fruits and vegetables
and extended meat dishes. The sweet tooth has
been toned down, and the pupils have learned
to enjoy desserts other than cake and ice cream.
No doubt, in the future more lessons will have
to be conducted by the demonstration method.
Increased emphasis has been placed on the
Work of the Home Nursing Course. It Was es-
pecially stressed to the pupils who are looking
forward to entering nurse's training, also to
others who will care for the sick in the home
because of the lack of nurses for this purpose.
Several times during the year the Department
was able to send a treat to the USO where
our boys in uniform made short work of help-
ing it to disappear. Once it was a gift of cakes
prepared with substitute sweets. Another time
fancy sweet breads and coffee cake. Later,
a large box of cookies.
Our courses in homernaking have increased
emphasis placed on adequate nutrition, food
conservation and preservation, care of family
members in illness, child care, laundering, and
the intelligent management of the home and
family relations-thereby aiding in the devel-
opment of a more responsible and intelligent
High School student.

The realm of books is indeed a very pleasant
world-one in which new thoughts and ideas
are offered. In English classes, not only are
the students taught to read the fundamentals
of great literature for their own pleasure, but
to read so that they can talk intelligently and
interestingly on those subjects of common
knowledge to all people.
Of course, the study of grammar and correct
usage is necessary to prepare one to speak and
write. Since practice makes perfect, the writing
of letters and themes is being emphasized this
year in all classes. The study of newspapers
and magazines in these momentous times gives
us a tolerant understanding of the world in
which we live. Through class discussions and
projects we acquire discriminating taste and a
properly critical viewpoint toward magazines,
movies, and radio programs. Our school work,
therefore, becomes a part of our daily life.
The study of the drama helps us to enjoy
stage plays and gives us an actual chance to
try our own abilities as actresses. Stage diction,
as well as the conversation of everyday life is
clarified by speech studies. The senior play,
Christmas program, and many other plays and
assembly programs are coached by members
of the English 'department each year. In our
high school English classes, however, the chief
aim is to acquaint all girls with the famous men
of literature and their great works. The immor-
tal Words of great authors have been handed
down from one generation to the next, so that
the torch of wisdom shall always burn brightly.
Perhaps, someday, one of us shall join the
ranks of American writers for, as Longfellow
"Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time."

Let's travel into the land ot family relations,
for our freshman realizes that it is most impor-
tant to keep informed of the home situation as
the scene changes almost overnight. The family
is broken up, part of it is in the Armed Forces,
or defense plants. This leaves the care of small
children to the high school boy or girl.
If homes are like this, problems of relation-
ship arise. How to feed and maintain a family
with prices high, reduced time, and income
shifts? Then, there is always the student who
leaves school just because a job pays a salary.

There is a problem, also, of new taxes, and
the strain of rationing, which effects every
home. The early marriages and home manage-
ment problems which arise when the couple
is separated are serious ones to be solved.
All this and more is taught you so that you may
be a better manager of the home.
Last, but not least, our freshman asks about
history. It is, as you know, the story of man
from his earliest beginnings. Dates, names,
reasons, and all seem to run through your
mind as you trudge from class to class.

Nurses need mathematical training very
much to fulfill many of their duties, cooks need
it for cutting down or enlarging a recipe, in-
terior decorators need it in planning the fur-
nishings of a room, designers need it for har-
mony and proportion of dress lines: and so on
through many professions. Although the math
classes may not seem War-minded in all of their
discussions, they are being trained to do their
bit, nevertheless, by being practical, econom-
ical, and exact. No doubt this training will
prove of great value to those entering war
The science department, consisting of gener-
al science, biology, chemistry, and physics, is
stressing victory gardens, health, first aid, nurs-
ing, and industrial laboratory jobs.
The chemistry and physics classes are inter-
ested mainly in nursing and industrial labora-
tory jobs, although the fundamentals of chem-
istry and physics are taught on a larger scale
than required for nurses and lab technicians.
Some of the girls are nurses' aides. The indus-
trial plants are imploring more and more
girls to come and till the gaps left by men
going into the armed forces. The exhibit of
glass blowing with the Working demonstration
and the display of various germ cultures Were
some highlights of the all-school show this year,
furnished by the science department.

Did you ever wonder what the click-click-

down the second floor hall . . . or what the girls
were doing when the teacher read and the

were near our typing classes which prepare
girls to be accurate in their work. "No fair look-

Shorthand classes teach girls to do things

operating the switchboard, and other office
routine is valuable training in office practice
classes. Bookkeeping and commercial arithme-
tic give us a better understanding of the mathe-
matical problems sometimes encountered in
this business-like world, while salesmanship
classes help us to meet people and bring out
our personality. We gain this experience by
soliciting ads for the Ripper and The Technata.
Friendliness and cooperation are emphasized
throughout the commercial department as ne-
cessary to Winning the admiration of future

trained to help with filing, running the switch-

classes are the official school messengers and
are often responsible for the delivery of im-

during a single period. Because these acts are
performed so quietly and efficiently, we may
not realize how often and how much the com-
mercial department aids our school business.

During Christmas season this year, our halls
were made more beautiful by an exhibit of
illuminated song manuscripts serving as back-

statuary, painted in full oriental splendour of
colors. One long table held the magnificent
display, which included the figures of the
Mother and Child, Ioseph, the shepherds, the
Wise Men, even down to the most cherubic of
angels and the minutest ot mild sheep. It is
hoped, by those who saw it, that this exhibit

Everyone has been acquainted with music
at some time or other. When you were a tiny

Now that you are at Girls' Tech, you find
many opportunities to expand your musical
knowledge. For instance, there are the chorus
classes where you sing all types of songs.
Members of the chorus experienced a great
thrill when they broadcast a half hour program
over WTMI in April.
You might even prefer to produce your own
music, so you joined the band or the orchestra.
There you were in the Tech band following a
strutting majorette in a parade or on the foot-
ball field. Wasn't it exciting? The band also
played, by invitation, at the National Recrea-
tion Conference held in Milwaukee during
Oh, you joined the orchestra? Then you
played in the assembly, accompanying the
chorus groups, or played soft background
music for a play. You might be one of the many
girls who would rather know about the com-
posers of fine music. For them, the music appre-
ciation class has held many delightful hours.
Here you listened to the beautiful strains of
some of the world's greatest music.
The house lights dim and a hush falls over
the auditorium. Slowly, the golden brocade
curtain rises. The A Cappella choir in pastel
formals begin to sing. You drift away to the
lands of mystic romance, and you visualize the
stories which are told in song, and you close
your eyes and dare to open your heart that
the immortal notes may fall into step beside its
Bass String Section.

The war has brought out the necessity of
being as well-developed physically as men-
tally. Proper physical alertness has been stress-
ed in the physical education classes. The gyms
have never seen greater activity than this year
because of a four-year compulsory physical
education program established in the city of
Milwaukee. Most upper classmen frolicked
through a folk dance course. The old gym, long
used as a sewing room, was converted again
into the gym that Alumna will remember. The
ninth grade followed their usual program of
sports, including apparatus work, tumbling, and
To help us keep fit and up to par, our physi-
cal educational classes have a splendid pro-
gram which consists of dancing, playing volley-

ball, baseball, and basketball, bling on
mats, swinging on the rings, and helpful exer-
cises. To this is also added the hygienic work
which includes personal cleanliness and good
grooming. With a variety of activities such as
this, it is no wonder physical education is popu-
lar and enjoyable.
In foregoing years, only one year of gym
and hygienic work was required, but in these
critical times when strong, sturdy, healthy bod-
ies are essential, the gym work has been ex-
tended to cover the four years of high school.
With all this training, good sportsmanship is
bound to be a certain result.
For fun and excitement beyond that already
received from ordinary work, something new
has been tried out this year. It was an inter-
homeroom volleyball tournament. This gave
every girl a chance to have a little competitive
recreation despite the fact that she was not a
member of the Athletic Club. The uproarious
and energetic games that resulted, played by
many inexperienced players, made this sport
event amusing and enjoyable.

"I go into my library, and all history rolls before me.
I breathe the morning air of the world while the scent of
Eden's roses yet lingered in it-I see the pyramids build-
ing: I hear the shoutings of the armies of Alexander-l
sit as in a theatre-the stage is time, the play is the
play of the world." - Alexander Smith Dreamthorp
Here in the lovely library which was dedi-
cated to our former principal, Ora A. Blanchar,
We see the pageantry of all man's activities
unrolled before us.
Students in geography and history classes
build up a background from reading about the
colorful medieval tyrants, Genghis Khan, and
Tamerlane, The Earthshaker. Beginning with
the faraway past, students can trace the chang-
ing ownership of the many-times conquered
European and Asiatic provinces and see that

though there have been many tyrants, the
democratic states have endured.
In America, all should have equal oppor-
tunities. It is impossible to make pupils' capaci-
ties equal, but it is possible for all to share
educational advantages up to their capacity.
Thus, the school library develops democracy
and provides a mental feast for all.
This year, we were very fortunate to acquire
a set of the ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA for
reference work. There are other sets of encyclo-
pedias in our library, but this addition adds
greatly to complete reference efficiency. By
taking a delightful browse around among the
newly acquired books, you will also find these
three popular biagraphical works, Katherine
Cornell's I Wanted to be an Actress, Polish
Profile by Princess Sapieha, and the life of
Harriet Beecher Stowe, Crusader in Crinoline
by Forrest Wilson. Other shelves reveal Nora
Waln's Reaching for the Stars, E. Chevalier's
Drivin' Woman, and Agnes Keith's Land Below

The fire is crackling cheerfully and the room
glows with warmth. Mother Time garbed in her
most comfy cloak gathers her anxious children,
who are effervescing with joy and the expecta-
tion of hearing the story of "growing up at
As a reverent hush falls over her eager listen-
ers, she gazes out the window in search of
those young faces that had once been familiar
to all at Girls' Tech. Slowly she tells of each
and every person who had once been just a
young girl bewildered at first, but as the weeks
elapsed became a part of the graduating class
The mist blows away and Mother Time sees
through her window gleaming white uniforms
adorned by the efficient nurses who are now
part of the world of healing the sick and wor-
ried . If time were to turn back they would once
more be science students at Girls' Tech. The
struggles in chemistry and physics could again
be told by a small but strong group. Their faces
were seen day after day and they appeared to
have been just ordinary girls, but with the
passing of time they have proven their worth.
Some are now laboratory technicians watching
over the various experiments that are making
our world a better world to live in. They have
formed a line and are now marching into the
mist. They are Lucille Ullein, Florence Kraus,
Marion Krueger, Catherine Knapp, La Verne
Dohnalek, Marion Fredrichs, Ioyce Iansen,
Bernice Storest and several others, but now
The mist clears and we see a modern office
equipped with the best of everything including
an efficient and neat secretary whose commer-
cial course at Girls' Tech enabled her to be so
well suited to this and almost every kind of
office. There's Ann Heil, director of the office
staffg Iustine Levar, typistg Dorothy Oppmann,
La Verne Oldenburg Dorothy Oppmann
Adeline Smendzik, jewel Glasenapp, Eunice
Steinborn and many others.
As she thinks back she visions the sky win-
dow casting a ray of spiritual light on arched
and struggling figures of the young experi-
enced, but, nevertheless, ambitious students of
art. She remembers their eagerness to learn
the preliminaries that one must know before he
can do the type of work accepted in the art
world. Those crude drawings of not so long
ago are now skilled pieces of originality placed
in art galleries for all to admire.
But wait, Mother Time now sees an ordinary
home which is so important for without it
America could not and would not be. The
housewife and mother is familiar because she
had once been a student of Girls' Tech. Her
training in cooking along with every other sub-
ject has cleared the path to her way of home-
making. How many of those girls have followed
that same path. They are not only in homes
but restaurants, hotels and hospitals-sewing,
serving, doing for others what they were once
taught to do at Girls' Tech.
Mother Time will not neglect those who are
clothing us. She tells the wide-eyed children
of the training those dress designers and seams-
tresses have had while in school which enables
them to take their place in these positions.
Time has drifted and the graduates of 1943
have stepped into their place in life. Whether
they are teachers, nurses, stenographers, ac-
tresses, artists, musicians or housewives, each
has fulfilled her desire. Many of the hardships
and pleasures that have come up .during the
past four years have been recalled in the minds
of these seniors during the last few days spent
together in school.
New students have come and gone and many
will come before Mother Time can finish her
tale, for as long as Girls' Trade and Technical
High School exists there will be others just like
the February, 1943 class of graduates.

Call To Arms
At Camp Tech
At the call to reveille - the alarm c1ock's
annoying burring - over two hundred rookies
- gals to you - sprang from their beds to join
forces by voluntary enlistment with the troops
already sationed at Camp Tech, Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. Hurriedly they donned their uni-
forms - pleated skirts, sloppy sweaters, saddle
shoes, and angora anklets - and fell in line
for inspection - inspection by mom, who left
no dirt behind, not even the ear.
They boarded their troop trains - street cars,
busses, and trolleys - and gaily entered the
camp to which they had been assigned for the
duration - the duration of grades 9, 10, ll, and
12. Thus, enrolled in various branches: account-
ing, stenographic, foods, clothing, art - life
began at Camp Tech.
Buck Privates all, but longingly they gazed
at their superior officers' stripes. They decided
instantaneously to make their time in service
something to look back on with pleasure and
satisfaction. Soon such names as Dolores
Schmidt, Eleanore Fischer, and Marion Pitroff's
began to appear on the Camp's honor roll,
Undoubtedly, the most moving assurance of
the four years to come, took place in the very
first week of their lives as Buck Privates, when
they received an address by their command-
ing officer, Colonel Lulu Dysart. They will not
soon forget those words of welcome, nor could
they realize how very soon as graduated offi-
cers of Camp Tech they would hear, in the
same place by their same beloved Colonel
Dysart, a speech of farewell which would end
their term of training.
The first bit of basic training at Camp Tech
consisted of an early morning class in calis-
"Line up you rookies," shouted Captain Whit-
Selma Salemka Eleanora Paczkowski
ney, the instructor, as the ambitious group
tumbled into the gym. First in line was a tiny
bit of dynamite, Private Betty Hutter, only four
feet, eleven inches off the flour. She sped like
lightning toward a gym's horse and when she
finally did reach that monstrous dummy, she
came to a dead stop, and shouted, "Hey, fellas.
give me a push!"
During this period of training much fun was
had by all, except perhaps cr few unfortunate
rookies, who with a little added weight, found
the task of performing the ordered feats on the
ladders and rings, a most formidable task to
In the first year of training. the young soldiers
begin to take an active interest in the various
service clubs located on the camp grounds.
Private Ruth Kehl poined the stage crew and
many were the incidents she had to relate.
Among them was the time, Private Alma Wilk-
ler and she were on the lockrail lifting the
oleo. As the story goes, Ruth and Alma each
grabbed a rope and pulled for dear life, but
as usual the curtain was weighted wrong. Then
Ruth, with a gleam in her eye, gave an extra
generous tug, and lo and behold, the rope went
up two feet and so did Alma. With an ear
splitting scream she let go of the rope and
thumped to the floor. We can imagine how
surprised you were, Private Winkler, when you
learned you could fly.
Alice Sagemiller and Iune Iahn deciding that
they were meant for the stage immediately
joined the Dramatic Club with Captain McKeith.
Clubs were filled to the brim with ambitious
rookies eager to do their part.
Furloughs were over and Camp Tech once
more extended her gracious arms to Welcome
her rookies who were now promoted to Private
First Class. Through the halls they marched
their newly acquired chevrons gleaming like
a pool catching the sun's first reflection on an
early morn. Among these First Class Privates

If you happen to pass room 230 some day
cmd hear the click click of a typewriter, you
know it's only a busy Technata typist getting
manuscript ready for the next issue of the
paper. No matter when you pass that door,
there is always someone working there, usu-
ally under the supervision of Miss Gardner.

lines, or occupied in one of the many duties
involved in the production of a successful
A capable, efficient, and willing staff is
necessary in order to maintain the high lit-
erary standards which former staffs have
set up. Here are only a few of the steps in-
volved in the production of a paper.
First, there is a list of possible news to be
obtained from Miss Dysart. Of course, there
are many other ways of getting news for a
reporter always has his eyes and ears open.
After this list has been compiled, the type
and placement of the article itself must be
Each page is completely planned before
an article is ever assigned. An exact scale
drawing is made of the page, and the article
placed upon it. The exact number of Words
and headline indications are put on and
then the articles are assigned.
Forty-eight hours after the assignment has
been made, the article complete is supposed
to be in. From here, it goes to the faculty
advisor for correction. After correction, it
is turned over to the typist.
The articles are typed on regulation manu-
script, and then turned back to the faculty
advisor for re-correction. The typed copy
must be an exact replica of the original with
the corrections put in of course, Let us follow
this article further.
It now goes to Miss Dysart for checking
and her O.K. The head is written, put at the
top of the article along with the headline
indication so the printer knows what type
to put it in, and then it is sent to the printer.
He takes over, and we see no more of it till
the trial galley sheets or first proofs are
The sheets are corrected and turned back
to the printer so he can make the necessary
changes. After the corrections have been
made, the page is put together and another
final proof is made of the entire page. This
too is checked for mistakes and then your
paper is ready to go to press.
Such is the life of one article. Such is the
life of each article, the processes it must go
through before you see it in the paper. There
are many other things which go into the
development of the paper, but this covers
quite a bit of it.
The main objective of the Technata is to
bring news about the school to the students
when they want it, and to present it in an
interesting manner. Each person on the staff
strives toward that goal, and its attainment
is the only reward they look for.
The next time you pass the Technata office
and hear that busy click click or see a bent
head, remember what it means. The paper is
in the stage of preparation. Give it a silent
wish for success.

The Art Club, supervised by Mrs. Grant,
is in its second year of existence. The stu-
dents meet every other week to plan the
trips that help them become acquainted with
various fields of art Milwaukee has to offer.
The girls visit artists' studios to studwy differ-
ent types of work. The Milwaukee Art Insti-
tute is visited for famous world paintings.
The study of old art is accomplished in the
form ot tours to the Public Museum. A tour
of Radio City was taken to see its modern
architecture and interior decoration. A visit
to a department store was made to see the
exhibits ol the drawings made by other high
school students in the contest sponsored by
the Scholastic Magazine.
The art students of the club drew silhou-
ettes ior the Pan American show as their
contribution to its success. At the May meet-
ing of the Milwaukee Art Teachers Club they
sketched the members while students from
other schools showed their ability in various
kinds of art. Traveling exhibits, loaned to
Girls' Tech from the school board art office,
are put up by the club to interest other girls
in understanding and appreciating historic
and modern art.
The Book Club, under the sponsorship ol
Miss Burdick, exists lor several purposes. It
promotes social activity among the students,
provides a meeting place for girls with liter-
ary taste, and extends service to the school
through library assistants. The girls who

have been held this year by the club. There
have been movies, literary quizzes, and dis-
cussions about the more appealing books in
the library. To end the semester with a jolly
good time, the girls went on a trip to Radio

who are fighting for us. They have made
scrap books, cake, cookies, and candy. This
year they had a wishing Well where they
gathered clothing for those who were really
in need of it, just as our own Red Cross has
done for so many years. The girls camp at
various places, but the most inspiring part
of this club is holding morning services and
the raising of the flag.
The Lens and Sprocket Club was organ-
ized by Miss Ehlert and Miss VanVelzer, for
the purpose of teaching students to run the
silent and sound film machines. The new
girls meet twice a week in room 108 for
instruction, until they feel able to run a film
without assistance. They are then eligible
to run class films during their study periods.
If the girls want to run the sound machine,
they meet in the balcony to practice and
learn from the teachers. A man from the film

Have you Wonderer who was behind the
promotion ot music here at Tech? It's the
music council! These people, under the di-
rection ot Miss Lipoglavsek, are the girls
who aid the girls behind the instruments of
band and orchestra, whenever their help is
needed to arrange programs.
Their job is not an easy one. They must,
among various other duties, distribute instru-
ments, take care ot the sheet music libraryg
look after music stands, chairs, and the gen-
eral arrangernentsg help to plan and promote
music activities. Everything goes along
smoothly and enjoyably because these girls
have been in the background ot all music
activity in school.
The Piano Club, or if you would like a
more formal name, the Tech Accompanist
Club, is always ready and willing to help
our school. Under the guidance ot Miss
Glynn, the club's purpose is to supply the
school with accompanists for the chorus, or-
chestra, and any assembly programs.

The meetings, which are held every Thurs-
day, are all play, no work! To provide enter-
tainment, the life of a famous composer is
related to the girls, and then one of the
members plays some of his work on the
piano. This not only supplies the girls with
a good time, but they learn to know and
appreciate the composers and their work.

The Science Club this year has been quite
war-minded. Under the guidance of Miss M.
Meyer, victory gardens have been the theme
of much of its work. The members have
devoted meetings to learning how to pre-
pare the ground, plant the seeds properly,
and care for the young plants. An assembly
program was also given over to the club
for members to stress the importance ot vic-
tory gardens to the rest of the students. Many
have thus been induced to raise their own
vegetables and save ration points.
Besides victory gardens, the girls also do
other things. One group debated Whether
or not the Metric system should be adopted
in the United States after the War. Several
tours have also been conducted.
The Stage Crew, under the leadership of
Miss Nowell, has again given Girl's Tech
much appreciated service. They have given
unsparingly their free periods and any other
spare time to assisting in putting over as-
sembly programs. Several of the members
helped the photographer in taking the pic-
tures forthe Ripper.

restricted membership basis this year. Seven
seniors, six juniors, and two sophomores
were selected on a basis of creative Writing
ability, excellent average in English, high
scholastic standing, and a letter of recom-
mendation or application.
During the year, the titteen girls, under
the guidance of Miss Newton, Wrote poetry
and short stories for round-table discussion.
The main task of the group was helping to
Write the Ripper. They interviewed the facul-
ty, wrote about the various departments and
club activities, and made up a calendar of
school events for the year.

The Victory Council is something new in
the way of school legislation. This council
is a city enterprise, and is the first time that
any common contact has been made be-
tween the student bodies of our Milwaukee
high schools. The members of the city organ-
ization are composed of two representatives
from each of the city schools. These two
representatives are in turn members of their
own school's individual council. The mem-
bers meet to discuss problems and to find
solutions. They plan programs, as the name
suggests, for victory.
The Girls' Tech Victory Council has spon-
sored many drives. Collection of magazines,
games and victrola records for army posts,

drive, key drive, victory gardens, and the

War Stamp and Bond Sales are only a few
of the council activities. The War Bonds and
Stamp sale was very successful. Our quota
was more than equaled with a 98014: partici-
pation, and at an assembly program four
American Flags were presented to the home-
rooms of the highest total sales. A large cir-
culating Minute Man banner is also stimu-
lating Girls' Tech sales. The April War Bond
rally is another example of the workings of
the Victory Council. This rally was the means

Perhaps we are at last realizing the im-

heritage, and Girls' Tech Student Council is
part ot the heritage. Through our council,
girls are learning how to be understanding,
tolerant, and promising citizens.
The student body representatives-one girl
from each homeroom meet on alternative
Mondays, discuss problems, and relay the
reports to each ot our many rooms. The ofti-
cers, Caroline Helgert, Dolores Schmidt, and

'Production by Samuel French Company
North America took South America by the arm and strolled
down the halls ot Girls' Trade and Technical High on Friday,
November 20, when the All-School-Show, Pan Americana, was
held. Color, brilliant and bold, gaiety, bubbling and exciting,
reigned. Heavy-eyed Latins, senoritas, and flashing dashing
senors, gauchos, and cabellaras mingled with the American
audience. Showmanship ot the Americans, South and North, was
displayed in the auditorium where two night-club floorshows
were held. Also, in almost every room there was an exhibit or
spectacle of delight to eyes and ears. The hearty call of venders
came to the ear as wares were sold in booths along the halls
which were named after Latin streets for the night. It was a night
never to be forgotten by Techites.
These appropriate street signs and locations appeared about
"Avenida del Rio"-first floor: "Avenida Iuarez"-second tloorg
"Avenida Modere"-third floor: "Avenida Manana"-fourth floor.
The auditorium was the "Club Americana" with a Swank show,
and a Swing show in continuous performances. A style show was
going on in "El Patio," dancing in "La Cucaracha" and a recep-
tion for the alumnae in "El Cabildo." There was a bake sale at
"Al Fresco" and bowling alleys at "The Localo."
Amusements were found at "The Posada," "El Theatro," "El
Centro," and "Cine Colon." Fishing went on at "El Tesoro," while
the open market was held at the "Taluca." The usual fortune
tellers were busy at "La Dama."

This year the style show took the form ot victory garments
with a victory garden for the background. Along the charm-
ing little garden plots strolled the fashion manikins. Gar-
ments were described by the chairmen, Dorothy Tutkowski
and Audrey Briewa. All clothes had been made in the
sewing classes during the year, and utility was the keynote.
Lacking, this year, were the frivolous, yard-demanding gar-
ments ot previous years. Also noticeably missing was silk
material or types of cloth that demanded a cleaner's bill.
Starting with colorful cotton dresses, the show was replete
with practical clothing, including pajamas, made-over gar-
ments, spring ensembles, children's clothing, and formals.
A minimum of decoration and a decreasing use of yardage
reminded the audience of the modern tempo.
Highlights of the show were the little boys who paraded
in suits made over from their daddy's suits, and the faculty
members who proudly strutted to show off their garments
made in various sewing classes. If a popular vote were
taken of the most numerous garments modeled in the show,
woolen suits and wash dresses would win the prize. Despite
the sensible keynote of the entire show, however, it was
the formal graduation dresses that evoked sighs of envious
delight from the audience. The style promenade might
correctly be summarized by saying that Lady Fashion was
very popular that day.

A patriotic program in honor ot George Washington was pre-
sented in both assemblies on February 26.
The following students took part in the program: Lois Waech,
Marion Pitrof, Caroline Helgert, Eleanor Fischer, Anna Marie

Curtis, Betty Dautermann, Adeline Kerrar, Helen Oftenbecher,
Shirley Rahn, Sally Salemka, Veronica Storbey, Norma Wedel,
Marjorie Westley, Mary Woyach and Eugenia Zuenker.
The members of the string quartette also participated, they are:
Lillian Krenzke, Evelyn Zacher, Elizabeth Kionka, Esther Kionka.
The play showed Washington, the country gentleman in his
beautiful home Mount Vernon and portrayed in a colorful fash-
ion his wedding to his neighbor the beautiful Mrs. Martha Curtis.
AMERICAN RED CEQSS
Gordon Iohns ...... Virginia Peplinski Mrs. Iohns ............ Marion Pheifter
Laura Iohns . .. .... lane Richards Mrs. Sheffield ...... Leona Kwiatkowski
This play, presented April 8 by the Make-up Box, was a domestic comedy by
the well-known author, Christopher Morley. A trivial quarrel between Gordon and
his young wife Laura furnished much amusement, but beneath it all lay a truth.
It was a strong play being thought provoking as well as very entertaining. The
play also provided for good work in characterization.
The cast had been selected from members of the club that had given service
to the club during the year.
Tickets were sold by members of the Make-up Box. The proceeds were sent
to the American Red Cross.

Many opportunities for recreation are found at Girls' Tech.
The school activities bring out many talents for entertaining and
develop leadership. Some girls like dancing or skating, others
get the greatest amount of pleasure in competitive games. Health,
posture, sportsmanship, friendship, and fun are the chief objec-
tives in recreation.
Volleyball has aroused enthusiasm among the girls this year.
A series of class games were played in the gym. Each team
elected a manager, and the players got a real thrill out of the
Fancy roller skating and stunts held the interest of a large
group of girls in room lUU during the Winter months.
Noon hour dancing is one of the best times to get acquainted.
Many lasting friendships have been formed during these pleasant
hours. The nickelodeon furnished the music.
An unusual form of recreation is enjoyed by the Bth and 7th
grade boys who are temporarily housed in Girls' Tech. Miss Gill,
our chemistry teacher, made friends with the chemically-minded
boys, and invited them to visit the laboratory. They have had a
wonderful time performing simple experiments under her super-
vision when the equipment is not used by the Chemistry or
Physics classes. These boys show genuine ability, and we hope
will some day be among the chief engineers of America.
The gym classes make daily trips to the playground for drill
when the Weather is good. They play ball, games, and have
group exercises. A constant effort is made to build strong bodies
in order that the girls from Girls' Tech will be able to carry on
their share of the work to be done in the post-War World.

I8 Tech's victorious seniors leave their beloved Alma
Here I am a senior in high school almost ready to
march across hte stage and receive my diploma which
finishes my twelve years of school life. As I look
back upon the years, I have to chuckle to myself
when I picture a small child of seven years struggling
over a bundle of numbers, trying to do the process
that her teacher said was addition, and that unforget-
table day I won our spelling bee because I could
spell the word "through" and Iohnny couldn't. Oh,
yes, such memories linger for a long time. Besides
such memories of school wrk, I can recall when St.
Valentine's Day came round and everyone proudly
put his little package of colorful valentines that he
had addressed to his favorite playmates in the big
box on the teacher's desk, which was adorned with
red hearts and how unhappy I felt when I received
a valentine from some friend I had omitted. The holi-
days were such fun for us. I often stared into the
eyes of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln
when the teacher put their picture upon the bulletin
board for everyone to see. To this day I'll always
remember the day I first heard the story of George
Washington and the cherry tree. Yes, school was en-
joyable to me, even if I wouldn't admit it to anyone,
when history was suddenly put into my days program
things changed. I could never remember all those
dates although spelling was easy for me and memory
work was also, I guess it was just cause I didn't take
much interest in history. Recess held fun for all and
if the class had been good while the instructor was
absent from the school room she let us have the
volley-balls to play with during our recess period.
Then a new adventure began, I was to enter high
school. I chose my school carefully and finally enter-
ed. High school was much different from grade school
with a new and strange building and unfamiliar girls
and teachers. I soon took my place among them and
plunged into my schoolwork, after everything became
routine and familiar. Dances, proms, senior plays,
and other events marked the bulletin boards and the
years flew by till I was about on the first step of the
stairs leading to the stage where my diploma will be
Oh, the memories of my school days will always
stay with me, and I know I will miss school life when
I finish this year.
THE LADY OF THE LAKE
Silas Marner was interesting, Merchant of Venice
was entertaining, but Lady of the Lake is the best.
I think in places it was harder to read than many
other books, but a second reading soon made it clear
if you were careful. I like the way the characters
appear in the story. They are written in one by one
so that you know for sure that Roderick isn't the light
haired man, but Malcolm is, and Ellen is the young
lady who gave the hunter a ride in her canoe over
to the island. Each character is described clearly and
is set fast in your mind so that you have a clear
picture of every one. The Ballad of Alice Brand is
very restful after trying to concentrate deeply on the
main story. It is a little story in itself, and when
you've finished it and it has a happy ending, you are
eager to continue reading the rest of the story. Other
songs put in throughout the book seem to deaden the
monotony of one continuous tale. I also liked the
ending. At the bottom of the page, you are positive
that Ellen won't be allowed to marry Malcolm and
over goes the leaf, and she holds the key to his chain
for as long as she wills! Long live Iames Fitz-Iames!
OVER THE WIRES
It is a clear, bright morning in May. Everything is
humming: the dishes are clattering, pots and pans
are banging. lt's Mother's birthday and there is not
a care in the world except to get the party off to a
Guests arrive and are all present sitting in the par-
lor talking and waiting for dinner to be served. That's
when "Over the Wires" came the message which
changed the whole affair. lust a few words stated
clearly and simply. Everyone is sad, so changed.
All leave without even a look at the dinner that was
so carefully planned and prepared. Mother in her
new dress sits at the window with Dad by her side
and the children in the background not knowing what
to say because they know whatever they do say
won't help at this time.
A ,day later, the house again is full of guests that
are cr little reticent about talking and laughing. Then
up stands Mother so tall and straight. She says,
"Folks, this is to be a party: no one is for one minute
to stop having fun, and I know if Bill were here, he
would want it to be this way." She turned slowly
away adding "and he is here," while saying this she
hung a new service flag in the parlor window.
Now everyone passing the little brown house of
Bill's mother sees not a blue star but a gold star on
a field of white with a red border.
Why bother, in this crisis, to save on your auto
tires because your neighbor isn't very concerned
about his either? Why take the time to buy war
bonds and stamps for our national defense? What of
it, if our government hasn't enough money to build
war materials, because you haven't a son in the
Sure! Go ahead and hoard' food and other mate-
rials. Why, you have to watch out for yourself be-
cause nobody else will watch out for you, if you
don't do it yourself.
Now it's just terrible that shoes are rationed. The
people just can't get along with three pairs of shoes
because there are just loads of dances and parties
to go to, and they simply can't wear the same pair
of shoes all the time.
Mrs. Iones doesn't have to worry about not having
enough canned goods for the duration. She was
smart. Before rationing became effective, she stocked
her shelves full of canned goods. She had to look
after her family first before thinking of those loyal
American boys on foreign battlefields, perhaps ill.
vi Y: 1 ,,.-I'M,
Now, if Mrs. Iones hadn't hoarded so much, she
probably could have saved a boy's life.
Wake up, America! This isn't peace time, you
know: We all have to sacrifice a little. No, we can't
even call it sacrifice, compared to the hardships our
boys overseas have to endure. Individualism during
a war doesn't work out. We all have to work hard
and pull together, in order to secure victory for the
lndividualism does, however, work out in respect to
buying bonds and stamps. Everyone should .put some
money aside every payday for this purpose. Maybe
one of our bonds has helped to sink an enemy ship,
so let's all "bother" a little rnore and be more con-
scientious and help our boys in service, to obtain
A PRAYER ANSWERED
The night's stillness was pierced by the droning
motors of the planes as they zoomed up towards the
stars like bullets speeding to their destination. Bill,
standing in the shadow of the trees, felt pride hum-
ming through his body as he thought of the part he
played in keeping those planes in the air. But even
as he felt this pride, his heart was heavy with worry
for he realized what a small number of needed planes
they had to fight with, against the great odds of the
enemy. He seemed tiny and unimportant in this big
world, as did the many other mechanics like him, as
he thought that his job would be of little use if there
weren't any planes left for them to fix. He lifted his
face to heaven and a prayer formed on his lips.
Maybe someone would hear it and answer.
A few uneventful days passed. Bill glancing up
noticed tiny dots like birds in the far horizon. His-
heart stopped beating as the clots growing bigger
and bigger looked like billowing clouds swiftly glid-
ing over the sky. Bill need wait no longer, for his
prayer was being answered. As he turned around a
dog sitting silently staring ahead of him heard a
softly spoken, "Thanks," Someone somewhere had
MEET THE PARENTS
I won't do it. I won't bring him to meet my parents.
If I do he'll meet Iulie, she's always around: men
always like her best. She's more sophisticated. Ever
since I can remember she's always taken everything
I have ever wanted. When small, my favorite doll, my
favorite toy. Well, she won't get him. Oh, she's pretty
all right, in a dreamy sort of way. All the boys
hasten to do her bidding, but if she so much as looks
at him she'll be missing two eyes.
Sure, here she comes now, just when I want to be
alone with my thoughts: that old julie, I could just
about skin her.
OH? HELLO IULIE DARLING I'M SO GLAD YOU
CAME. OH, YES, I'M FINE, MY MOTHER AND FA-
THER ARE FINE TOO. MY BOY FRIEND? OH, HE
HAS STRAIGHT MUDDY COLORED HAIR, FADED
BROWN EYES, AND RATHER WEAK LOOKING.
Straight! muddy! I really mean beautifully waved,
sandy colored hair, that when the sun shines on it
glistens like gold. Brown, deep brown eyes, with
a little Irish twinklep and a physique which would
put Mictor Vature to shame, but you think I'll tell
her that? Oh no! One look at him and she'll be
there hook, line and sinker.
OH. I'D LOVE TO INTRODUCE HIM TO YOU.
I'M INTRODUCING HIM TO MY PARENTS NEXT
SATURDAY, WHY DON'T YOU COME OVER THEN?
YOU WILL? HOW LOVELY.
Next Saturday nothing, this very night it's planned,
but I sure won't let you know.
IULIE, DARLING, I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO GO
TO THE DANCE WITH YOU TONIGHT, BUT I'M
GOING TO BE BUSY. I HAVE A LOT OF DARNING
TO DO. YOU MAY AS WELL GO BY YOURSELF
THOUGH, NO SENSE IN SPOILING YOUR FUN.
YES, YES, SOME OTHER TIME.
GOOD BYE, IULIE DEAR.
Well, at last she's gone, and rid of for the night,
well, Iulie dear, I hope you enjoy the dance.
Mother, this is Bill . . .
Then I burst out laughing until the tears rolled
down like ocean waves for there in the doorway,
stood Iulie-but I wasn't angry, and didn't feel like
skinning her-I could have kissed her. She had an
assortment of long, short, fat, slim, and tiny curlers
in her hair.
She was wearing faded blue slacks with not a too
clean "Sloppy Ioe" blouse. Her shoes were dirty,
and run down, her face was in need of make up, and
from her hand dangled lifelessly an old stocking.
She had planned helping me darn. She had met
Bill, and I was glad for now, no matter how he saw
her, he would always remember Iulie as he first saw
YOU'D BE SO NICE TO COME HOME TO
It was a beautiful night for romance, but here I
sit trying to make up my mind which I would like
to be, Mrs. William Brown or Mrs. Robert Brown.
It I accept Bill's proposal, we would live in a little
white cottage with green shutters and a little white
fence around the house. We would raise our own
victory garden, and I would cook for Bill. After Bill
came home from work and we had our supper, we
would sit out on the porch swing and Bill would
make up poems about my hair, my eyes, and his love
for me. Bill never said, "I love you:" he would say
"You mean everything to me," or "Darling, are you
happy married to me?" I would answer "Yesg" and
everything would be wonderful.
My life with Bob would be quite different. Bob
would want a big house with a swimming pool,
several horses, three cars, and of course, many serv-
ants. I would have nothing to do but go to my clubs
or go horseback riding or swimming, or anything I
would enjoy doing.
In the evening, Bob would take me dancing at
some smart night club or at some private party given
by one of his many friends. Life would be very
wonderful, just think, no work and all play. Bob
would never ask me if I was happy: he would just
take it for granted. That's just Boh's way.
I suppose Bob would always call me by his favorite
nickname for me. Iust think to be called Betsy! Betty
is okey, but no one would know that my name is
really Elizabet-h. Once in awhile, I wish I could meet
a boy more like my Dad's type. He isn't shy like
Bill or noisy like Bob.
I promised the boys an answer this evening. Oh,
whom shall it be? Here they come now! Oh, aren't
they handsome? They could pass for twins if no one
knew they are cousins.
I have just made up my mind! I have accepted
you, B---, Brrrrl Oh, what is that???
If anyone happened to be walking past the front
of the house, they would have seen an alarm clock
fly out of a window and crash on the ground.
YOUTH'S SWEET DREAM
Candy was in love again! Again, is the only way
we can say it. Candy fell in and out of love as
naturally as eating and sleeping. But this time it
really was different. The other times never affected
Candy as this present heat wave. All because it
was so futile.
Well, it's this way. All the times before Candy
had romantic dreams about local boys. But this time,
it was a perfect stranger! Mind you! And that's
why it was so futile-so saddening.
She would haunt the radio to hear his voice. It
was fascinating, perfectly, simply fascinating! He
was a singer-a heartmelting tenor. Hearing him
made her throat contract as she tried to swallow that
CBM? and Smeg! mmf Qafff ge Heal
immense imaginery golf ball in her throat. Gosh, his
voice was heavenly.
Candy was getting noticeably 'peaked sitting in
front of that radio with her eyes large and dreamy.
Ever so often there came a deep sigh as "Only in
Love With You," was vocalized by the throaty voiced
Around his voice, Candy built beautiful dream
castles. Like for instance he would be right here in
front of her-singing to her-looking, with a look more
tender than his voice.
Of course, Candy's friends were worried, especially
her boy friends who were declared 'to be mere chil-
dren with no thought of beauty. Now Candy wouldn't
go on Dutch treats with them. She was a swell pigeon
tool Well, gosh, what was eating her anyway? And
Lil and Dorie couldn't guess either. All she ever
did talk about, when she stopped dreaming, was how
divine Keith Karson's arrangement of "Only in Love
With You," was. Now Candy couldn't be in love
with Keith Karson, almost a stranger, or could she?
Ohl - - - not
Then came the unbelievable something that was
impossible to grasp so breathtaking was it. Keith
Karson was coming to Centerville. Imagine! He was
coming on a bond four.
Candy was in seventh heaven. The paper was full
of Keith Karson for it was not often an important
person came to Centerville. But now, Keith Karson!
If Candy was happy, her friends were glum. After
all, Candy was pretty cute, and Keith Karson was
handsome. Sure, they knew Keith was thirty-two
but, gosh, things like that happened. Well, remember
Daddy Long Legs? And Candy's dad was mayor, so
she surely would be able to meet Keith Karson. That's
all that counted, for Candy would do the rest: she
So, Bud and Artie and Iiggers and Lil and Dorie
got together. They had to think of something. Iiggers
was especially anxious since Candy was in love
with that meat ball, Keith Karson, and he was left
out in the cold. Why, all that old mush mouth could
do was singl
The fatal day came. Candy was radiant. Her
black hair was fixed in a glamorous up-sweep like
Veronica Lamour. She even used some of Mom's
lipstick "Enchanting Lady" and a dash of "Love's
Sweet Dream" perfume. The effect pleased her.
Softly, she whispered to her mirrored self, "The im-
movable object and the irresistible force." With that
she dashed out. She had wished she would be the
irresistible force, but she forgot the immovable object!
Keith Karson was unpacking in his Centerville
hotel room. He was feeling pretty good and hoped
he would bring in money. After all, it was a bond
tour and that's what he was here for. He only hoped
no one in this hick town would wear that silly per-
fume, "l..ove's Sweet Dream," and get too close to him.
Funny how he was allergic to it and no other per-
A knock sounded on his door. Keith opened it and
was not a bit surprised to see five teen-agers before
him. They wanted his autograph, no doubt. Three
boys none too friendly looking and two girls whose
expressions were slowly changing from cold indiffer-
ence to warm interest filled the doorway.
But it was not autographs they wanted: that is,
the boys didn't want them. The girls were reacting
differently than they had expected to, but dark looks
from the boys brought their minds back again.
They told Keith Karson the whole story, and Keith
could hardly hold back a grin when they told him
of Candy's dilemma. He promised to cooperate, and
ignore Candy as much as possible.
The whole town turned out, it seemed, and the
Town Hall was packed. On the stage was Mayor
Burton and the Burton Family including Candy.
Keith noticed Candy and with a nonchalant air ac-
knowledged the introduction. Candy, he noticed, was
staring at him with a dreamy lovelorn look. He had
to turn his face quickly to hide the grin creeping up.
Right up near the front five pair of watchful eyes
were on him. Kids, all of theml
After a few speeches by the notable men in the
town, he was introduced to the people. The ovation
was gratifying. Then he sang the song he had made
popular, "Only in Love With You." He couldn't look
at Candy. The expression on her face was pathetic.
Finally, the time Candy was awaiting came, after
Keith had made his patriotic plea for the people's aid
in buying stamps and bonds. Candy stood up and
walked toward him with the distinguished guest
plaque given by Centerville. Her knees were as weak
as a new-born colt's. He was even more handsome in
But something was wrong, drastically wrong, for
as she advanced, her idol backed away. Keith's eyes
began to watery he began to sneeze and cough. In
between his struggles to place distance between
them, -he mumbled, "Please, that -perfume! Don't
come so close." With that he backed away and
tried to control himself, but a new attack of sneezing
appeared. The audience had been watching the
entire performance with mixed feelings, first of sur-
prise, then of amusement. Soon they saw the humor
in the farce on the stage, the bewildered girl and the
sneezing, retreating inger. Keith Karson knew he
was finished as far as Centerville was concerned by
this foolish denouement, as gale after gale of raucous
laughter reached his throbbing ears. Regaining some
of his lost poise, he sped to the wings and disappear-
ed. Such was the passing o-f Keith Karson in the
flesh. And in the heart of one person in Centerville!
Candy never saw him again, and the thrill of his
voice was gone from the radio. Never had she been
so humiliated: all the glamor of the situation was
removed by those silly sneezes. Allergy was a term
unknown to her. But the gang found that Candy was
a swell pigeon again. Furthermore, she had most
interesting subjects to talk about again. By this time,
Candy had forgotten her most humiliating experience,
as well as a certain crooner connected with it.
Iuly, 24, l942
How's my sweetheart? Don't worry too much about
me. The accident wasn't as bad as the papers cooked
it up to be. I have to lay flat on my back for awhile
till that crack in my spine heals, but the doctor said
it is getting along pretty good, and my arm is mend-
ing quite quickly too. Until it's out of the sling,
though, my nurse, Miss Adams, will have to write
my letters for me. The other fellows who were in
the crack-up are in the same room with me. We've
gotten to be good friends, even if one of them is the
bugler. It sure feels swell to be able to sleep through
reveille, and look at all the K.P. duty I'm missing!
I can really eat heartily now that I don't have to
help peel the potatoes and onions, wash the dishes,
clean up the stove, and well, what doesn't a student
cook do? Not that I'm complaining, Mom. Army life
is O.K. by me, but you know how good it feels to
relax occasionally and watch the world go by.
Tell Dad to take care of himself and remind him to
give Skippy his bath once a week. Too bad the
little fella isn't taller. He could help me when I'm
on guard duty.
Well, I guess I'll have to close now. The nurse has
other things to do, and there's not much more to say
except that we're getting better treatment here than
we would as "civvies." So long Mom. Keep yourself
pretty for me.
Your loving son,

her "day off" so I can tell you about her.
Mom, she's the answer to my dreams. She has

thing like a halo. Her eyes are deep brown, almost
black, and when she looks at me, oh Mom! I know

Now all I've got to do is convince her. I think.she

at me. It seems to me she's around me more than
the ohter fellas, too, but not half as much as I'd like
her to be. Everyone around here calls her "Sunshine"
and she sure is, but lately she's been sort of down-
in-the-mouth. I suppose she gets pretty tired. We
run the nurses ragged. You'd like her for a daughter-
in-law, Mom. She's so sweet and gentle. I'll have to
close now. The Doctor says I'll -have to sleep for
awhile to rest my weary bones. That's a laugh! I'll
be dreaming about you and Mary. Good-night-I
mean-so long, Mom.
With love to all,
September 15, 1942
Hello there, Mom! ,
Happy birthday! Gee, I wish I was home to help
you celebratel As soon as I get out of here, I'll send
a gift home for you.
You know, I'm in the hospital here for another
stretch. We were to be released yesterday, but three
of us got the measles. One of the fellows who came
to see us must have brought the germ in. Oh, how
I'll hate to get up in the morning after our two weeks
are upl And will we be razzedl The other fellows go
past our windows and laugh themselves sick to see
their tough sergeant lying here all full of the rash.
By the way, Mom, you can forget about having
Mary for a daughter-in-law. I still love her as much
as ever, but I guess she was just feeling sorry for ue.
I thought all the while she loved me, but I gue s I
was mistaken. You remember I told you she was
down-in-the-mouth? It seems she's mourning for a
guy by the name of lack Greenwood. He was one of
the sailors missing since that aircraft carrier sank a
couple of months ago. She must have loved him very
much, because after she received the news, she col-
lapsed and was given a two-weekfurlough. I've only
seen her a few times since, but she's on duty in an-
other part of the hospital now, and she doesn't shine
around as much as she used to. I wonder if she
really loves him? I wonder what he's like?
Well, I'll stop for a breathing spell, now, I guess.
Say "hello" to everyone for me. I'm dictating this
through a glass partition so the germs won't be car-
ried out of here. I think I might have a furlough soon.
I have to get used to walking around again, and the
officials say I might as well practice at home as any-
where else. l have plenty of time on my hands, so
I'll write again soon.
Love to all,
September 30, 1942
It's almost time for taps, so I'll have to make this
letter short. I'm out of the hospital at long last, but
still find it rather hard to get around. I'm as stiff as
an old man. Stiffer. My duties aren't particularly
heavy as yet.
I was strolling around II should say trying tol
yesterday and stopped at the bulletin board in front
of the canteen. I heard someone call my name. It
was Mary. She had a sailor with her. I thought right
away it was that Greenwood guy. One of the nurses
had told me he was found on a rubber raft. They
came running over just as I turned to go into the
door. I wasn't going to stand around and watch
some other fella highstep it with the girl I loved.
Not mel They were all out of breath when they
caught up with me. Mary was puffing for all she was
worth. "Bill, wait a minute," she called. "I want you
to meet my long lost sailor boy. Iack, this is the
wonderful big lug I love. Bill, meet my halt-brother,
lack - - -."

Geraldine Hoppu - -
Beneath the large expanse of darkening sky, '
Foam capped waves dance to the moaning wind's
Caring not whether they remain or die:
But thinking only of their carefree flight '
To end against the shore and there to lie,
Until they're gathered by some unforeseen might,
Only to set out again with a longing sigh,
And end once more far out into the night.
The waves journey to the shore like weg
Carefree and gay in our start,
Not knowing how long we will be free, .
And meeting disappointment with unsuspecting heart,
Only to continue as the waves of the sea,
And end in a night that is just as dark.
There he goes - - - does your heart pain - -
Returning when the worId's free again.
Laugh you must, for he shouldn't see
The train's pulling in - - - he can't leave yet
There are so many things thatrhaven't been said - - -
There are little things - - - they way he walks
Or the way his face wrinkles when he talks
Or that lock of hair, and the way it falls, -
In his uniform, he looks so tall -
Goodbye Darling - - - Cried my lips
But my heart beneath my fingertips
Cried, "Come back, dear."
A LETTER FROM HOME
Why tell you that I miss you,
When you're so far away?
Why tell you that I yearn for you
Each moment of the day?
Why tell you if I had the chance
Right to your side I'd fly - - -
Why tell you all these things, Sweetheart,
When you know them as well as I?
Though words alone could never say
The thoughts within my heart
Perhaps this little note I send
May tell a little part
Of-all the love that's yours alone
And always will be, Dear,
Not only at this certain time
But each time through the year.
CALL HER - "FRIEND"
La Verne Orzechowski
Who worries if her skin is black or white,
Who cares about the language she may speak.
And does it really matter if she might
Have had a humble birthplace low and meek?
The deep blue eyes hold a gay, merry twinkle,
Her hair is of a bright, clopper-gold.
Across her button-nose there's a sprinkle
Of tiny freckles showing very bold.
If ever there's a time when I'm in need
Of a chum to fully understand and hear
My thoughts and woes: I've a friend to lead
Me on and make a smile erase the tear.
If she's kind-a worthy someone
He did send,
'Whoever she maybe, call her "friend,"
I love the spring," is what we say
When April showers pass away,
And May trips forth in all her grace.
I love the spring," is what we say
When birds begin to sing so gay
And flowers bloom in rapid pace.
I love the spring," is what we say
When we along our happy way
Go merrily forth to help our race.
I love the spring," is what we say,
But is it just the spring we love
Or is it not the God above
Who gave these things to us?"
Have you a friend who's kind and dear,
One who to you is sweet and true,
Who in time of need is always near,
And helps you along with all you do?
Or is your friend of the other kind,
Who after he has done his part,
Tells you what is on his mind,
And walks away feeling very smart?
If you 'find a friend who fits your needs,
Treat him right and you will find,
For him you can do many deeds,
And he will treat you very kind,
For he is like the man who learns a trade,
And in the end you'll be repaid.
The lovely, sparkling rain comes slowly down
To turn the grass a pretty bright new green.
It gives the flowers a wondrous shining gown
Which can not help but make a charming scene.
The little drops of rain cling to the leaves
Of all the trees that stand right in its way.
The wind comes by and quietly relieves
The tiny drops who thought that they could stay
The rain has always, always, been to me
The tiny tread of feet upon the roof,
The sound of it is like a jubilee
Of little friends who wish to bring us proof
That we who live a joyous life of mirth
Are not the only ones upon this earth.
Those lands of which we used to read
Seemed endless miles away,
Mere spots on maps, which little chaps
Forgot, once turned to play.
All unconcerned in school we learned
Of kangaroo and bear,
Now near they are, for none so far
But sorneone's boy is there.
Australia was a distant spot,
The great wide world below.
So tar it seemed, we never dreamed
That land we'd better know.
Now truth to state Australia's fate
Today is ours to share,
For many a dad says: "I've a lad
Who's with MacArthur there!"
Time was geography was just
A lesson taught in school
Of mountain range and customs strange
And climates hot and cool.
But now there is no place so tar
On earth's vast thoroughfare,
No battlepost, on sea or coast,
But Yankee 'boys are there!
Heaven must be a lovely place - -
No worries, sorrows, or care.
The souls ol men ot every race
Are at peace together there.
DID YOU NOTICE?
And remember girls read chapten ten:
I want an outline in ink and pen."
You must summarize pages 90 through 142:"
Remember, tomorrow book reports are due."
Quoted statements from teachers all day - - -
Homework, homework, that's all they seem to say
So what do we do? We give them nasty looks
And say, "Oh sure, we'll take home those books.'
And then at three-thirty, what do we see?
The books stay in the lockers under lock and key
I don't know if with everyone it's true:
But it's t-hat way with me. How about you?
FIGHT, FIGHT. FIGHT!
Don't let the headlines move you:
They're only printer's inkl
Don't let bad news get you down,
But just relax and think
Of all the folks in history
Who got an awful fright
But won, the same as we will-
If we fight, fight, iight.
So riveters and welders
And Gobs and WAVES and WAAC's,
Brave doughboys in the trenches
And all the folks who pay the tax,
We all have got our special job
That sneaky foe to smite
"With blood and tears, and toil and sweat,"
We'll have to fight, fight, fight.
Talk that's loose
Can raise the deuce:
A tongue without a bridle
ls very often homicidal.
First, I'll get the cook book
To see what I can find.
I may have to look and look
Until my eyes go blind.
Now, I have the one I'l1 make,
But what is that I smell?
In the oven is a cake!
Mot-her knows me well.
This rationing certainly is quite sad,
We really have our troubles:
But that isn't even half as bad,
As my nephew's bubbles.
The way he drools on teething rings,
You almost need a mop:
With all his toys and other things,
His thumb's the best he's got.
He has to take his daily nap,
W-hile the formula's on the range:
When he awakes, he's slightly damp
And undergoes a change.
You see, he's only four months old
And that accounts for it:
But I don't care, he's got me sold
More than a little bitl
An instrument I always love to play
If I have time, besides my work from school
It should be played an hour or more each day
In rain or shine, in heat or when it's cool.
My mother has the patience of a saint,
My sister always scolds about the noise,
My father's views are only in complaint,
My brother makes me play for all the boys.
I always strive to entertain my friends
When they arrive to pay a social call:
I play for them until the night soon ends:
They sing and dance, and fun is had by all.
My music goes with me where'er I go,
And what is better Iun I'd like to know.
The sun shone brightly all around,
And from the earth came not a sound.
Then, just as quickly as time goes by,
The wind blew fierce and the leaves did fly
Like a bird that is on its way
To the "sunny South" to sing and play.
The sky had suddenly changed its hue,
And big black clouds hove into view.
One might ask if this be the day,
When the sun shone brightly along your way
For such a change had taken place,
That there seemed not lett a single trace A
Of the merry sun that had once shone down
On all the world in every town.
Then, off in the east was heard a great rumble
Like a giant who had begun to grumble.
Down came the rain, on the earth so warm
And that was the beginning oi a thunderstorm.
NEPHEWS ARE NICE
Nephews are nice to have around,
With eyes of playful blue:
But when they start crying 'cause Mother is gone
That is my exit cue!
The sky was filled with angry noises,
The sea was angry too.
It sounded like angry voices,
Were coming toward you.
Then the sky was still,
And the sea was too.
As if some Unknown Will
Had commanded them out of the blue.
As I sat and waited and waited
For the mailman to come,
Should I write a letter, I debated?
Or finish the work I hadn't done.
The clock struck one
And still no letter came.
My nerves were so unstrung,
I thought I'd go insane.
Suddenly the door-bell rang!
I made a dash for the door,
"Special Delivery Ma'm," he sang,
And my heart began to soar!
Silhouetted against the deepening purple of a
misty day in October, Iohnny Davis, laying deep in
the trenches, listened tensely to the shells zooming
above and around him-wcrtching and waiting for
As he lay there his thoughts drifted back to his
home in America and to his beloved, little mother.
She wasn't really but he liked the Russian phrase-
little mother. He thought of the wonderful times he
had in his home town. He hadn't really appreciated
those things, the wonderful times and people, and
the wonderful country. Now, on the battle field, it
was something he and every soldier fighting for
democracy, dictatorship, or any other government
Iohnny remembered his father, too. He had only
sen him when he was about twelve years old, but he
remembered him well. Like every child remembers
someone or something that is dear to him, Iohnny
remembered his father. His mother talked much about
father to him, but Iohnny knew why - she loved
America, and everything it stood for, her great love
for her husband could not make her leave it to go
into a country infested by a bunch of madmen.
Iohnny thought of how sad his mother had looked
when he'd left-all she had was gone-still, she'd
smiled the last thing. That had made Iohnny very
happy. She was everything that Iohnny was fighting
for. Iohnny's thoughts drifted back to his father.
How, he wondered, could a man as fine, kind, and
gentle have such great love for a homeland which
had acquired a reputation worse than hell by a ruler
who was so cruel and heartless. Perhaps he had
remembered it as the country it had once been with
a peace-loving people, quiet towns, and happiness
throughout the land.
Iohnny vaguely remembered the country. He had
visited there once. It was a lonely land, now, he
could hardly believe that some of the fine people
he had met had become part of the army of a mad
Iohnny's thoughts were interrupted by the ser-
geant's sharp, "Attention!!" lt was very dark now,
the moon was a 'foggy blur. Iohnny could scarcely
make out the sergeant's dim form. He listened atten-
tively as orders were given.
"We're going over the top at ten-five minutes-the
enemy is advancing fast so there'll be hand to hand
combat. Fight hard and dirty, remember it's either you
The trench became quiet in a ghostly silence, the
quick breathing of the soldiers seemed intense. These
boys were all thinking of home-of the people they
loved-and the land they were fighting for.
Then the sergeant's voice broke into their peaceful
thoughts, as he spoke quietly, "All right, boys, let's
As he went over the top, lohnny was still a little
dreamy, it seemed that all the men looked like his
father. Abruptly lohnny shook his head and blinked
"No time for dreaming." he thought. "This is war, it's
either he or I."
lohnny held his bayonet at a horizontal angle -
and then as he saw a Nazi approach him he pushed
it slowly, dutifully into his opponents soft belly. A
chill went through lohnny as he heard the other yell,
a screeching, blood-curdling, cry. lohnny felt sorry
for him. A bayonet stab was a low gruesome death.
Again he caught himself-soldiers are men not
He felt his bayonet strike home again and again.
Then he felt a vague sort of pride-he was getting
revenge for the people of Nazi conquered countries.
Suddenly he seemed almost bloodthirsty and he
fought in a quicker, a more ruthless and desperate
manner. "He'd show these pigs."
Then it seemed that there were more men oppos-
ing him. He jabbed furiously into one stomach after
another--feeling his bayonet go into the softness over
and over-and heard those awful death cries.
As he was about to plunge his bayonet into the
last opponent, a flare burst above. lohnny looked
into the man's face.
"FatherI" he cried, half joyously and half in
The man looked dumbfounded, "Ver ist das? Mach
"It's I, Dad, lohnny."
The man's face shone recognition.
"My Boy." he cried.
The two embraced, there, in the middle of a muddy,
war-torn, battlefield the son embraced his long lost
Neither knew what to do or say. Any minute mc-'e
men would come and either or both of them would
They both lay down on the soft, muddy earth, com-
rades of both passed over them, shells burst above:
machine guns drummed, dying men screamed, but
lohnny and his father talked of home. Mr. Davis
asked one question after the other :-How is mother?
Is she married? And most of all-is she happy in that
wonderful land? lohnny answered solemnly and in
lohnny queried, "If America is such a wonderful
land, why did you leave to come to this country
infested by killers?"
The end of his sentence was cut off by the shrill
whistle of a bomb and the explosion nearby. lohnny
never finished: his father never replied.
HERO OR HAM?
"Hey, less, wait for mel I have something impor-
tant to tell you. Whoel I'm all out of breath. Let'r-1
stop at the soda shop, and I'll tell you all about it."
"Tell me all about what, lane?"
"Well, you know the new stage show at the Reno
Theatre, well, they've the most gorgeous leading man.
I"Ie's just my idea of heaven, and every time I see
him, I could die with ecstacy. Why I've seen the play
twice already, and I'm going again tonight. Are you
"Well, I don't know, lane. I heard it wasn't so
"Wasn't good, are you kidding? Oh-h-h, that hand-
some leading man."
"All right, lane, but how about letting me treat
you? I'll call for you at six thirty."
Outside the theatre at six thirty:
"Let's hurry, less, or we'll miss the first curtain."
"There he is, less, isn't he young and handsome?
That dark wavy hair, those pearly teeth, and that
physique. Oh-h-h, he's simply gorgeous."
"Oh, he's o.k." But to himself, less thinks, "Young
and handsome baloneyl I-Ie must have just come in
on the antique special. And that dark wavy hair,
I wonder where he gets his permanents? I'd like to
get mine there too, but it's probably a wig anyway,
anld those pearly teeth, he probably gets them whole-
"Ohl less, isn't his acting simply divine?"
"What! Oh! Sorry, lane, but I wasn't listening."
"You know, less, his acting and his voice have the
same effect on me. They simply carry me out of this
"Carries her out of this world-I wish somebody
would carry me out of this theatre. I'll bet anybody
that guy has a priority on ham. I don't see how she
can stand this show three times in a row. But they
say love is blind, stone blind if you ask me. Well,
just one more act. I-hope I live through it."
"Oh less, isn't this scene sad? I just cry and cry
every time I see him die."
"Yes, it is kind of sad." Sad affair is right. They
should have gotten rid of him in the first act instead
of the third. Whoopie! There's the curtain, I don't
see how I lived through it. Now I can go home and
have nightmares about it."
"Oh! wasn't he divine, less, so manly and master-
ful! You know, tomorrow night is the last time it's
playing here. I'll tell you what, less, let's go again
tomorrow night. I'll go dutch treat."
"What do you mean, go again tomorrow night,
well . . . you see lane 'I-I-I've, well, you see, the boss
asked me to stay tomorrow night and do some extra
work. Well, you see, if I do it, I get a chance at a
higher position and wages. Well, there's our street
car. Shall 'we go?"
LIFE BEGINS AT SEVEN-THIRTY
"Gladys, will you get up? This is the last time I'm
going to call you. If you don't get up now, I'll let
you sleep and you'll be late for school."
"Gosh, mom, if I could rely on that last statement
of yours, I might stay here. But, after living with
you for sixteen years, I think I should know a little
better by now. Shouldn't l?"
"lust never mind the talking and get out of bed.
It's almost seven-thirty. You said something about
studying for your examination before going to school.
You won't get much done if you don't get up. Hurry
"Ieepers, did you say exams? I forgot all about
them. Mother, I don't feel very well. Perhaps I should
"Gladys, get up and eat your breakfast. You should
know better than to think up a story like that."
"Well, it was a nice thought while it lasted. I
might as well get up. lt's now or never. O.K., I'm up,
get those eggs scorched and that toast burned while
I dress, will you, please? Oh, why wasn't I born two
years sooner. I'd be out of chool by now and I
wouldn't have to go through this agony every six
months. loy, joy, don't I have fun?"
"Gladys, stop your gibbering and get started for
school or you'll be late. You needn't worry about
your exams. You've always passed before, and there
is no reason why you shouldn't now. That is, if you
have listened and studied hard all semester."
"But mom, that's the trouble. I didn't study last
night for my exams as I intended doing. He's about
six feet two inches tall, I think."
"Whatever are you talking about?"
"He's so handsome with that smooth, wavy, black,
hair and those deep baby blue eyes with long, curley
eyelashes. Blue eyes are uncommon among people
with black hair, aren't they, Mother? Don't boys have
all the luck? I've seen people with beautiful teeth
before but his. oh. small. even. pearly white teeth.
I think he's French. They say French people have
small teeth, don't they? He must be a football player,
that's right he told me so. I don't remember what he
is on the team, catcher or carrier or something like
that. But, oh, what a figure or should I say physique?
Figure, physique, what's the difference? He's so, so
handsome. What a man."
"The party last night was wonderful, but darn, I
wish I had studied. I don't know a thing about that
history or English, and just my luck those exams will
be hard. Those teachers, they're bound to ask every-
thing I don't know, and I'll flunk as sure as I'm sit-
"No use sitting here as long as I have to go. I do,
don't I, Mother?"
"Yes, Gladys, you do, and you had better hurry."
"Well, the mountain can't come to Mohammed so
I had better start climbing that mountain. Goodbye,
"Goodbye, Gladys, and don't worry."
Spring! Spring! Beautiful spring. It's so wonderful
outside today, even if it is the same old Eighteenth
Street block. It seems spring does something for
everybody and to everything. Take those huge cream
like clouds, drifting lazily in an ocean of blue sky.
How I wish I were up there instead of on the way to
Oh, that breeze would have to blow my hair all
around. I can hardly see with it in my eyes, and it
surely doesn't taste good. I shouldn't complain. The
breeze is so soft and warm, and it's wonderful to be
outside, I ought to tell someone of my idea for an
open air school. They are always talking about girls
and boys getting a lot of fresh air. How can we,
sitting in a stuffy school room writing a dreadful
exam? They should close the schools on such a
I didn't realize that is the sun that's so bright. How
lovely! I wish I had a camera. The sun is too beau-
ful for words, coming up in the East, all red and
orange like a huge ball of fire.
Here I am in front of old faithful. "Hi, Iune!"
"Did you study for your exams?"
"I studied a little, but it won't do much good. It
"Is that the right time? Lord have mercy on my
soul, I won't have time to study. I'll -have to dash
right up to the history room. I must have walked
slower while admiring the beauty of spring. Coming,
"I'm coming. Didn't you study, Gladys? I don't
want to frighten you, but I think these exams are
going to be hard."
"Are you kidding? I know they'll be. Hi, Betty:
hi, Arlene. Take a deep breath and step into my
parlor, said the spider to the fly."
The first question, and I don't know the answer!
They say if you don't know the first answer, that's a
bad sign. Oh, what was that man's name, the one
who invented the first glider? There goes one finger-
nail. It took me weeks to let them grow this long
and now look at them. The time's almost up, but I
think I can finish. I hope so. I've got to! There is
the bell. I'm finished. Well, half of my worrying is
"Iune, wait! What was that first answer?"
"I think it was Franz De De."
"I can't remember if I put him down or not, there
were so many. Now we can worry all night about
our English exam, right, Cutie? Oh, yay, yay."
A Few Days Later
"Iune! Iune! I passed my history exam with a
ninety-six. Imagine me and a ninety-six, that doesn't
sound right. Maybe the teacher was out with her
best beau and she felt sorry for me. I don't mind
though. To tell the truth the exam wasn't as hard as
I expected. I got the answer to the first question just
before the bell. I knew then that everything would
turn out all right."
"I'm glad it's over and believe me I wouldn't do
it over again for love or money. Gosh, Iune, do you
think next semester's exams will be hard? I'm wor-
ried. I bet I'll flunk. Do you think so?"
There I was, sitting in a chair, the electric chair,
but it was almost that bad. Well, you guessed it,
the dentist chair. I could just feel the driller on my
teeth now. Why, every time I thought of it, I felt like
running out. And that's not all, but I just knew what
a hearty welcome he'd give me. I suppose he would
say the same thing that he always says, "Hello there,
glad to see you." Sure, he was glad to see me, but I
wasn't glad to see him. Well, well, here comes my
Dentist: "Well, well, hello there. Nice seeing you
"Hello, it's nice 'being back again."
Nice being back again. Arn I kidding myself? Oh,
yes, it's nice to be ibaclr, my eye. Boy, he should
know what I'm thinking right now.
Already I could hear him saying, "Now, that didn't
hurt, did it?"
Oh, no, it never hurts, but he should let me pound
away on his teeth a few times, and I think he would
change his mind about what he said before.
Oh, oh, here he comes again.
"Well, let's see what I can do for you today. Open
your mouth wide."
Sure, I'll open my mouth real wide, but I could
bite off his hand when he puts it in my mouth. Well,
then it started, the banging away. One time he hit
my tooth so hard I thought all my teeth were coming
"Oh, what have we here? Pretty bad tooth. I think
I'll have to pull it."
"Go ahead and pull it."
Sure, go ahead and pull it, after all, maybe by the
time he's done fixing my other teeth, I won't have
any left anyway. After all they're only my teethg
who cares if he pulls one? Who cares? Well, I do.
After all, drilling is bad enough, but when it comes
to pulling, that's terrible.
But, of course, I'll have to let the nice man pull itg
I couldn't show him I was afraid, could I? I could
hear him get the instruments ready. I was wishing
that something would happen, so he probably would
burn his hand, or cut it on some sharp instrument.
But, no such luck, everything seemed to go along
smoothly. Now he was all ready.
Yes, I was all ready, too, all ready to collapse!
TWO SHINING STARS
Wilma Denning R.
Iames Harcourt, crimson fared from anger, slumped
into a chair, heaved a sigh, and shook his head dis-
gustedly. For a moment death-like silence filled the
room, and only the monotonous ticking of the clock
could be heard. Martha Harcourt dried her tear
stained eyes and looked at her husband. They were
both thinking of the scene that had taken place only
a few seconds before. Their son, Don, had told them
that he had no intentions of joining or being drafted
into the armed service of his country.
The silence was finally broken by Mrs. Harcourt.
"What ever will we do with him, james? I know I
didn't want my son to fight on a bloody battlefield,
but for Don to be a conscientious objector, unwilling
to fight to keep his country free, is utterly disgrace-
ful. Do you think there's any possible chance that he
will change his mind?"
Iames Harcourt raised his head and looked doubt-
fully at his wife. "I don't know, Martha, I don't know.
Maybe something will change his mind, but what-
ever that is, I can't think of it."
The room was again enveloped in silence until the
cheery voice of Beverly, daughter of the Harcourts,
was heard. "Hello everybody," she said as she en-
tered the parlor. "Well, why all the drooling? You
both look as if you lost your favorite daughter all
"Yes, you have a right to know about it, Beverly,"
replied her father. "It's about your brother. Don is a
conscientious objector. I-Ie refuses to fight for the
freedom of his country."
"But, Dad, he can't do that."
"I'm afraid he can. When he is called and refuses,
the War Department will most probably send him to
the camp for objectorsf'
"That's terrible, but there must be some solution to
the problem. Maybe I can think of something by
After hours of serious thought, Beverly did think of
something, and announced her plan during breakfast
the next morning after Don had left for work.
"I have an idea that might influence Don to drop
his intentions. I'm going down to the recruiting sta-
tion today and enlist in the Wor.nen's Army Auxilliary
"I see what your goal is," interrupted her father.
"When Don knows he has a sister in the Army, he
will feel quite ashamed and will naturally join some
branch of the service. What do you think of Beverly's
"Well, I didn't think l'd ever have a daughter in
the Army, but if you think it will help, I agree."
The plan was carried out, and the six training
months that followed were tedious for all three.
Beverly anxiously awaited word from her parents
who were very impatient waiting for a change in
their son, but there was none. The plan was a failure,
so Beverly took the last opportunity she had to speak
with Don. This was during her furlough before she
left on active duty.
"Don, won't you change your mind? There's no
sense to your action. Let me go abroad knowing that
there will be two service stars hanging in the window
"As far as I'm concerned, there will never be two
stars in our window. I saw through your plan when
I first heard of it. You had better go now, or you'll
miss your train."
"All right, Don, but I won't give up. Maybe it will
take an act of God to make you regret the manner in
which you've acted. I must leave now, but I'll write
as soon as I've reached my destination. Good bye."
The long, monotonous day came and went without
any word from the young woman, but it was tragedy
that surrounded the house when news was received,
not from Beverly, but from the War Department in
Washington. The letter read:
It is in deep regret that we inform you of the sad
news about your daughter, Beverly Ann Harcourt.
The ship she was aboard was attacked by the Iapan-
ese Navy and was sunk. We are not certain.

These soldiers came back to work, and work
they did. You could pass commanding officer
Beverung's afternoon class anytime and hear
Private, First Class, Iustina Gillman muttering
to herself as she ripped a seam while making
her G. I. uniform.
From the bookkeeping room could be heard
sighs and groans from Privates Irene Rakowski.
and Margaret Stuesse, as they wrestle with the
mysteries of keeping accounts balanced.
Peeking in on the biology class -one could
see Privates, Grace Mueller, and Marion Mi-
chalek surpressing squeels and screams, in a
most undignified manner as Private Ralphia
Cannizzio dangled her frog under their noses.
All were model soldiers, or were they? The
commanding officer inspected her study hall to
find a pair of culprits who had rudely inter-
rupted her a bit of buzzing and mumbling. Sud-
denly her gaze fell on two Privates who were
engaged in their daily conversation. These
buddies are habitual guests of the Guard House
on Tuesdays and Thursdays, respectively.
Remember when the Corporals took over the
Mess Hall? Who could forget, for within these
portals occured many accidents, humorous or
There was the time when Corporal Gladys
Roesler was on K. P. duty in the camp's cafe-
teria. She was arranging stuffed tomatoes on
a tray and commenced to carry them out to
the Mess Hall when a delinquent tomato slid
off the tray right in front of Captain Druml.
Was the Corporal's face red? You can bet it
was, and it matched the same shade of that
healthy tomato she so proudly exhibited.
Will Corporal Mary Iane Meyer ever forget
the time her buddies slipped an ice cube down
her back in the Home Nursing Class, and she
displayed a new jitterbug step, right then and
. . . Tenshun! It was the night of the Free
Men's Pageant, and everyone was ambitiously
engrossed in boarding the camp jeeps which
were to take the group to the Auditorium.
Corporals, Anna Marie Buzzell, Iustine Levarr,
Doris Colpert, Ruth Kaml, and many others
were arrayed in their finest attire for their final
performance in front of the nation's music
teachers. The jubilous calls of the enthusiastic
would-be-songstresses mingled with the groans
incurred by the banging of hoop skirts against
doors and bruised ankles. That same night
Camp Tech's A Cappella Chorus sang their
way into every heart of the audience. With
heads tilted slightly, and animation registered
in every single face it was no wonder that even
the most critical music lover was overcome with
awe and enchantment.
It just goes to show you that the worst hap-
pens to the best of us. Evelyn Zacher had just
been promoted to Senior Band and was trying
to impress the older members on the first day
she was to play with them. With what she con-
sidered dignity and poise, she entered the re-
hearsal room. Quietly she moved over to the
piano and took her place: but alas! instead of
sitting on the piano bench, she seated herself
with ta loud resounding tumult of notes, which
could never be called music, right in the center
of the piano key-board.
The greatest trial of a soldier's life at Camp
Tech occurs with a luncheon that these Ser-
geants must serve to their Commanding
There is this amusing story traveling around
the barracks that concerns Sergeants, Ioseph-
ine De Petro, and Gloria Long. The above
Sergeants were preparing "potato croquettes"
for their luncheon, and were willing but not so
able. A much needed egg was not to be found
so the ingenious soldiers calmly went about
making them without the egg. Of course, their
faces were filled with numb surprise when the
illustrious croquettes were brash enough to
crumble and fall apart. So the cat is released
from the bag, and the Sergeants will probably
be very red-faced upon reading this.
Eager is the Word for Sergeants, Catherine
Selaiden and Delores Rose, who were so am-
bitious to embark on their luncheon project
that they got up before taps sounded to hasten
Now, there remains one more outstanding
event in the lives of Camp Tech's soldiers-
the day of graduation, which marks the crown-
ing achievement of their training period.
Excitement reigns throughout the assembly
hall as every Sergeant breathlessly leans for-
ward, eager to engulf those last inspiring words
from Colonel Dysart. Amid the fanfare of trum-
pets, and a last sharp, solitary salute to our
Sergeants at Arms, Audrey Fleischmann, and
Theresa Zinner, the graduated officers march
out. Their heads are held high, shoulders are
erect, and eyes as bright and glistening as the
chevrons proudly displayed on their sleeves.
Yes, there you go Troop 43, the echo of your
treading feet to haunt these halls again and
again. Refrains of your joyful voices will ever
linger like dancing shadows in the mist.
Look out for that black cat!
Don't walk under a ladder like that!
Bad news to have your window shake-
Seven years' bad luck for every mirror you break!
Death in the family to hear a dog howl,
And never three on a match, or three on a towelg
Thirteen at a table is never done,
And always graveyards should you shun!
"Silly superstitionsf' most of us say,
Yet many believe them still to this day.
Some think it a catastrophe to commit such a blunder.
Do they have supernatural powers? Sometimes I wonder.
DAY DREAMING OF SUMMER
Spring is ending, and summer is nearp
Beautiful flowers Will soon be here.
Soon it shall shower, soon it shall rainy
And then we'll know it's summer again.
So let's be happy, and let's reioiceg
Let's stop and listen to every bird's voice
The Song they sing is one of bliss,
That's why I'm happy, because summer's like this.
