THE SUN-DIAL THE PROPHECY The Woman I Wont To Be There are many great women in history I could wish to be. Mary of Scots- poor, brave Mary who stood with her face to the guillotine and refused to trade the birthright of her heirs for the right to live. Jeanne d'Arc-the glorious, gallant Maid of Orleans who fired the fainting hearts of the French and swept them to glorious victory! Florence Nightingale who matched derision and ridicule with courage and strength and made nursing the fine profession it is today. There is Louisa May Alcott-gentle Louisa, whose immortal stories of American home life were written when her body was racked with illness and her soul with loneliness. And Marie Curie, whose wonderful discovery of radium will be a boon to humanity, forever. I could Fill pages about these women who have carried the banners of my sex to the highest places. But I -I cannot be any of them. I can just be myself. The woman I wan! to be is the best I can get from that "self." I want to enter whole- heartedly into my chosen profession and make myself worthy of it. I want to sur- round myself with friends who will love me and need me. I want everything I say and do to be kindly, fair and charitable, and though there may be no shining aura around my name, perhaps someday--someone may wish to be the zmmmz IWAS. IT WILL NOT MATTER It will not matter much the task I shall not count my pay in coin That life will set for me, But find at end of day, If I can bring my fullest self That I am richest only when The "woman I may ben- I've been just "all I may." --RUTH HOLLAND President, VELIA SPAGNOLO SCCICIHIY, MARGARET MULLER Vice-President, LEONORA TARLETON Treasurer, MARIE EBERT CLASS COLORS Green and White CLASS FLOWER CLASS MOTTO Tea Rose "Ever Onward" Advisers, RUTH DUNWOODY, HELEN BATT THE SUN-DIAL THE WILL We, the Seniors of Girls Vocational School, do make and publish, this, our last will and testament-to those we love and to whom we intrust our feelings for knowing and enjoying their acquaintance, we do not leave those things that are animate for they are not at our disposal, but those things that we feel are greater because of their significance we now devise and bequeath. Item: We leave to those who have come to appreciate fine arts, fine music, and the beauty of life surrounding them with whatever they may need, as the strain of "Schubert's Serenade," the faint fragrance of the rose, and the glorious riot of the sunset. We bequeath to them, lines of Shakespearean plays, paintings of the loveli- ness of clouds, trees, and birds, we leave a life to them bursting with all these fine things so that they may be content. Item: To those who love inspiring sports of rivalry, we leave the undaunted confidence in their own skill in sportsmanship and the sufficiency of strength to accept defeat gracefully. We leave to them courage,-courage to listen and to face -he applause for the other fellow. We leave strength to them so that they can play the game well and undefeated. Item: To those who love merriment, we leave lilting songs, so that they may dance and sing without let or hindrance or without any care, and we give to said people, good cheer, wit and humor, and the company of jolly fellows to laugh and joke with, with all the happiness of their youth. Item: To those whose lives are brimming with the harmony of peace and con- cord, we leave additional satisfaction and ease so that their homes will be filled with all this. We leave to them, the sweetness of early dew, the song of the nightingale, and the dainty bloom of the honeysuckle, all these things are to add a touch of beauty to their quiet lives. Item: And to those who have given us each day of their own strength of body, mind, and spirit, and who have unselfishly helped us over the roughened spots, we bequeath all the goodness that has resulted from their teachings, to last them through the rest of their lives.

First came their choice of oflicersg Now just which is the best? Then Mildred Stricker, President, Her name led all the rest. Ruth Sanford, then, Vice-President, Mae Koester, Secretaryg And Sylvia Johansen A Treasurer's name to carry. October brought gay I-lallowe'en, Whcuse name suggests a danceg So to the gym went everyone- You should have seen them prance. Prizes, refreshments, fun galore, For every junior there, And finally the floor show treat, Now miss it-did you dare? Assemblies, clubs, activities Of daily school routine, Class meeting with year's plans laid down, November's work is seen. And next in store, a novel dance, Plus one with Santa Clausg But when the cakes with candles came, Then, oh, my! what applause! Please Turn 'l'lw Pagi- Z7 if-3 TH E SUN-DIAL A new idea was introduced For january's treat, A Pep Assembly was put on, Another Juniors' feat. Old Snitzelbank was sung with words That brought the spirit out, A humorous play was introduced, With many a laugh and shout. The junior-Senior dance was held At famous Levering Hall, Where everyone came dressed to kill, Like Cinderella's Ball. The glowing of the lireplaceg The fifteen stags in line, The music of jack's orchestra, just made the night divine. Mid-year now meant new officers To take the others' place, So Madeline Wilhelm, President, Was first within the race. And Catherine Saul, Vice-President, Ruth Holden, Treasurer, Hortense Grifhn for Secretary, To name them is a pleasure. The Junior-Senior basketball- This game did tell the tale, The honors to the Seniors went, Class spirit did prevail. St. Patrick's day brought on a dance, All hopped to Cityis bandg The entertainers gave a show, And did they get a hand? In place of tickets, hats were bought, Good things were served to eat, This dance goes down on record as A dance that can't be beat. Now April turned the thoughts of all To plans for May Play Day, A pretty Junior must be named To be the Queen of May. The Maypole dance was watched with glee, The Queen sat on her throneg All juniors in the games took part, And joy stood out alone. So off we hiked one june day bright, All answering to the call, The eats, the games, the rompings, showed The good time had by all. And as our junior Days conclude, As all good things must end, A forward, anxious glance is cast, What Senior days may send? 28 fyl- , JP .3 4 ,f "" ""'4L' ' ff -4 rf -' f'z1,f,ei. -, ,' ' 1 - ' f 3921. f 1- E 2 A r 'if'-V 1 , it - -' 7111 , 2""Q 'V ij,-,ry, Qx , fd 1'-Q if: ' 1- , F Z it Q1 , ,fx ga?

There the Almighty may hear from the lips of His people all that weighs heavily on their hearts, there in the silence of the Cathedral with the organ-man may find peace! But I, who had sought peace in God's Great House and tried to gather all the Holiness present there around me, have somehow failed. Long I had prayed and fervently, yet my poor heart was choked and aching. I had not found peace there. Alone I did creep from that massive stone structure-God's House empty- handed. God was not there. I had not seen him, felt him. Heartsick and weary I fled the steps-the sanctuary that sheltered the worshipers-unhealed, denied! No longer did mind control body. I knew not whither I went. Blindly I tan- away from the crowded streets, the noise, the city-until my feet felt earth and grass and as suddenly the world changed-Behind hot pavements, pressing crowds, tumult, closeness of buildings, blackened spires, yes, of the cathedral-all, a part of the life I had lead-choking me to numbness. Even as I turned about, the better to find my going, hot breezes fanned my forehead, stifling me. They smelled of smoke and city streets. I shuddered, turning my back against it, facing an atmosphere filled with the sweetness of flowers-the coolness of dew. So did I continue to walk until finding that weariness of body had soothed weariness of soul, I stopped to rest and take notice of my surroundings. Around me trees-near, a brook-above me, azure sky-and under my feet, green moss. Then, as if a hand had torn away my veil of misery I wept and fell to my knees. Those trees, were they not the pipes of the organ,-the larger ones-and the smaller, those straight and close together, harp of the winds? The breezes, stirring clouds, whispering music yet caught by human fingers, and the brook, had it not the voice of the singers, acolytes with clear tenor? And the moss upon which I was kneeling, was it not the green carpet that so beautifies the church aisle-the blue sky dotted with Heecy whitness, was it not the great roof? And the fragrant odor of honeysuckle, holy incense? Yes, here, indeed, was God's House, the organ, the altar, space for kneeling. Leaving it I had but entered it again, God's House, with all its glory! Evident in every leaf, in every blade of grass, a church house more beautiful than man had built. Happiness unspeakable filled me. My heart was lightened-my burden lifted- God came down the aisle to touch my shoulder.

A place where you may find solitude,-may be alone, dream those golden dreams of fancy, look far off into the future, ponder over happenings of the day, wondering why you did this or that or failed to do some little thing? How unimportant it seemed at the time! How you suddenly realize it would have mattered-would have made someone else happy. Do you have a room-a place where you can express your own personality? The pictures, your choosing. Crisp curtains caught back to reveal the winding road- way or better, to see the flowers gaily blooming outside the window. A boudoir chair of chintzg its petticoat immaculate. Fluffy little pillows on the bed, all so un- conscious of the part they play in your life. Have you not lain awake nights, listening to the rain's stacatto-the wind's shrill howling through the trees which cast grotesque shadows on the wall, content within the warmth of "your', room? A room's a haven of refuge-Shelter! Great women have often sought the seclusion of their rooms, shutting out the world and facing their greatest problems alone. Such was the practice of Louisa Alcott. She had "her room,"-loved it, sought it. Today it stands much as it was when the writer lived. The desk by the window, looking down upon the spacious grounds of Orchard House-The spray of purple Iris Amy painted for her beloved sister when "jo" was ill and Amy too poor to buy flowers-"I like to think of my mind as a room in disorder and I had to put each thing in place," wrote Louisa Al- cott. She tried hard to dust out the cobwebs and put each little thing in its proper place but somehow cobwebs got in. 'Tm not a good housekeeper," Miss Alcott concluded. A room's an essential of girlhood. One cannot "grow" well without one. There must be space-space to live in, breathe in, think in. Life becomes too crowded! Yes, every girl should have a room to "live" in. SPRING There is a sudden stillness in the air. The gray sky is dotted with white flakes that float and drift to lie on the fast shrinking earth. Slowly, the ice forms, smooth- ing out the rugged edges of the land into soft roundness. The sun has grown dim and out of place in these cold, barren regions. The world is devoid of life, except for the snow birds that haunt the empty fields in great flocks. The drone of the wind rises with harsh bitterness, whipping around dark and gaunt trees. Winter has come and is ruling the barren lands with a relentless force. 40 THE SUN-DIAL X556 33, The long frozen days slowly drag by and as they near their end the snow be- comes slush and the river foams by carrying huge lumps of fast melting ice. The earth has turned to slacken her rigid joints and yield to thousands of rivulets that cover her surface. Then, there is a sweetness in the air and with a few warm rain drops the word of spring has come. Soon the boughs of the trees are dotted with tiny green bits of life and the newly arrived red-breasted bird waits to build a nest in their foliage. Tiny stems push through the soft coating of earth and turn their buds upward to catch the warmth of the sun that soon they may cover the plains with a profusion of blossoms. The sky has grown azure blue and the gentlest of breezes fan the dark clouds into Heecy whiteness. The population of flowers increases with the lengthening days. Their lovely blossoms carpet the Helds and fill the air with fragrance. It is a dif- ferent world, warm and happy and filled with new inspiring life: Spring is glorious! Her magical beauty rules Heaven and Earth with a gentle sweetness. RUTH HOLLAND WHAT CHRISTMAS REALLY MEANS "Christmas isn't for what you get," Said wee Jeanetteg "It's for what you give" Went on the mite. "If Christ would talk to you to night, I think He'd say- That He wished us to- Keep it that way." I can give the baby a day of fun, I can take my plant to that poor lame boy, I can do Motherls errands-every one, And my old kite 1 can mend for Roy, When this busy day is done and I creep to bed, I'll remember I have no toys, But I'll have one thing-lots of joys Running through my tired head. CATHERINE DEEGAN 4l THE SUN-DIAL SENIOR FAREWELL It is the way of life to leave unsaid as the days go by, many of the lovely things we could say-to leave undone, many of the things we have desired to do-to fail to show and express appreciation for the many things given us in life and to realize fully just how much what we have means to us until it is gone. And so it is that we of Girls Vocational School who are going from our Alma Mater this year, turn our thoughts backward with a more serious vein and as in life, when our two short years of school have ended, recount the happy days and the benefits we have received. It is with a feeling of sadness that we find those two years ended. As juniors we looked forward with great anticipation to graduation. Two years' time was too long for the impetuous girlish mind to compass. But two years have passed and quickly, and we are loathe to see them go. Now, we must say Farewell. Somehow Farewell means a summing up--a totaling of happy school days and work well done,-a meek declaration of the love we bear the students and the faculty of G. V. S. Let us not say Farewell-Let us go forth into the world confident in our prepara- tion, realizing that we have a beginning upon which we can build-must build! Nor must we forget that principle embodied in our own Student Council "the behavior of the individual, governs the behavior of the mass." And let us then take with us so much of Girls Vocational School that we shall through our own selves meet with it each day in others. We need not then say-Farewell! SENIOR CLASS OF '38 QSIGNEDJ A WASTE OF WORDS Farewells are such a waste of words They carry tears and sighs They're filled with gloom and heavy hearts Why can't they be denied? We cannot say farewell For each day we shall find We've brought so much of school with us . We canlt leave it behind! if 42 THE SUN-DIAL My Wewmay Page xfgdfy 43 THE SUN-DIAL , U 37 Jef fy i li f Narita Q 4524? 7 7 7 D frliffwfw' af JZLW' gif? aww HO' eff' 3 7 ZW 9 .
