l-- ' -■•■-- -. ■k y;::- r ' : s%:- ' -i: ' i --.: ' A ' ' f. ' ' yi! ' X foreword By JANE KNOX Boys and Girls in War Time was chosen the theme of S ' 42 Burr, because the children of today are now doing their best to help America in her time of need. Since our country was founded in 1776, Americans have lived in a democracy. Now our country is at war and our democracy is at stake. Realizing this the boys and girls are doing every- thing they can to help. America needs money, with which to buy machinery and materials. The buying of Savings Stamps and Bonds is the way true citizens are meeting this need, everyone knows that a nation can ' t survive without strong men and women supporting it. All children are making victory gardens and work- ing out of doors, in order to grow strong and healthy. With the following pages, we hope to show you what John Burroughs is doing in this All out for America program. JOHN BURROUGHS JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL 600 SOUTH McCADDEN PLACE LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA THESE THREE By JANE KNOX These three, Mr. Thompson, Miss Bailer, and Mr. Engberg, are the backbone of the democracy that reigns at Burroughs. They are at all times ready and willing to help the sixteen hundred students with any occasion that might arise during their three years at John Burroughs. Their aims are toward the building of the characters at present for good leaders and citizens of our nation in the de mocracy of the future. It is the combined efforts of the principals, faculty, and students that makes John Burroughs a place to remember. MR. ROBERT A. THOMPSON PRINCIPAL By ANNE JOSEPHSON and BOB OTTO Principal and pal to all, that ' s quite a title and it adequately expresses the senti- ments of sixteen hundred students toward their principal and pal, Robert A. Thomp- son. John Burroughs has had the good for- tune of his supervision since it first opened its portals in 1924. Mr. Thompson, after graduating from Stanford University, began his career as a teacher at POLYTECHNIC H. S., where he taught many of the Burroughsonians ' par- ents and relatives. He then went to Sen- tous Junior High where he became prin- cipal. You won ' t find many principals who have coached football at Stanford, taken three-hundred-mile hikes, or gained the confidence of all he has met. Well, Mr. Thompson has. Besides his athletic ability Mr. Thomp- son has proved time and time again that he is bestowed with a keen sense of humor. The quality of fair play is one of his outstanding characteristics with a heap- ing teaspoon of brilliance tossed in, just for good measure. Put all this together and what do you have? Not only the principal but the human being, Robert A. Thompson. MISS THERESA BALLER Girls ' Vice-Principal By lANE KNOX With a sweet and gentle air that enables her to meet any situation, no other person is as well equipped for the position of Girls ' Vice-Principal at John Burroughs as Theresa E. Bailer. Miss Bailer is here to be a friend to all girls, ready at all times to enjoy their pleasures as well as to help them out with their difficulties. A fine education has fitted Miss Bailer for her wo rk. She is a graduate of the Uni- versity of Chicago and U.S.C. and also a member of the Alpha Kappa Delta, and honorary sociology fraternity. In 1928 Miss Bailer was a journalism teacher here at Burroughs and later be- came our counselor. She left here and went to another school where she had her first administrative experiences. But luck was with us and in September, 1939, she returned to be Girls ' Vice-Principal at Bur- roughs — her favorite school. MR. C. EVAN ENGBERG Boys ' Vice-Principal By BOB OTTO Now ending his first year at John Bur- roughs, Mr. Engberg has done many things, and helped many of the boys through the Boys ' Council which he and Mr. Wilding sponsor, and has advised the officers of all the school organizations. Last September Mr. Engberg came to John Burroughs from Dorsey High where he was teacher of science and language for four years. Our vice-principal attended Morningside College in Iowa where he received a B.B. degree. Then he came to the University of Southern California and received a Mas- ter of Science degree. He has completed most of the work necessary for a Ph.D. degree. Mr. Engberg sings at the Hollywood Presbyterian Church as a bass soloist. Most of the J.B. students have heard him sing and think he has a fine voice. As well as the duties of Boys ' Vice Prin- cipal, he also supervises the languages, the Boys ' Physical Education, and the Boys ' Activities. He also is sponsoring the A9 class this year. During the past year he has had much success and done much to help our school in many ways, and we hope he will have as much success in the future.

PAGE SEVEN FAREWELL It is with deepest regret that I say good- bye to John Burroughs. The school that strives to win honorably, to loose graci- ously, and to co-operate generously, with its never-failing faculty, friendly advisors, and kind counselors. I am not as lucky as most of you, for I have only attended John Burroughs for two years. But I can honestly say that these two years have been the happiest years of my life. I have made many lasting friend- ships which I shall cherish through the years. Yes, I am leaving John Burroughs, but am I saying good-bye? Can a person say good-bye to something that means so much to him? We can ' t — or at least I can ' t because 1 am taking too much of it with me. Too many lessons, too many mem- ories. I can never thank you enough for the privilege you have given me in letting me serve as your Student Body President. The successes we have had this term are at- tributed to the splendid cooperation of the Student Body, with the help of the Board of control and the faculty that is untiring in its efforts and interest toward each student. It is with mingled sorrow and happiness that I say farewell to John Burroughs, and all the happy times 1 have had here. Sor- row, because 1 am leaving such a fine school, and happiness because I know that my last two years have been the most suc- cessful in my life — and because I know that there are many who will follow me, and that one by one they will gradually lead J. B. to its ultimate goal, Perfection. Student Body President, S ' 42 Jimmy Walters, GOOD-BYE On leaving John Burroughs I want all of you to know that these past three years have been the most important period in my life. I could not have hoped for a hap- pier ending than serving my school as President of the Girls ' League. Whatever measure of success I have had is due to the generous help of the faculty and the splendid cooperation of the Student Body. 1 will never forget the happiness it has brought me, the friends 1 have made, the fun 1 have had, and the experiences 1 have gained. But I won ' t say good-bye, for it is impos- sible to say good-bye to the things you have grown to love. Judy Hales, Girls ' League President, S ' 42 Working this past term with Mr. Eng- berg and Mr. Wilding has been a great pleasure, and an experience I shall never forget. 1 have lost nothing and gained everything during my A9 term at good old J. B. by holding this office to which you boys so graciously elected me. Ben Cowles, the Vice President, and Frank Roberts, the secretary of our Boys ' Council, have really been swell in plan- ning out the programs and assisting in many other tasks including the paper drives and the track meet. Now unfortunately for myself I have to say Good-bye. Good-bye to a great bunch of fellows and a swell school. Boys ' Council President S ' 42 Frank Mahoney, PAGE EIGHT STUDENT BODY OFFICERS President Jim Walters Vice Presidents. Judy Hales, Frank Mahoney Secretary . . . Jackie Swarthout SPONSORS Watching, guiding and always looking for ways to improve the operations of the Board of Control are the three sponsors. Miss Howell, Mrs. Spivey and Mr. Corley. Miss Howell, who also sponsors the Civics Club is indispensable and her pres- ence at the meetings is always appreci- ated. Mrs. Spivey and Mr. Corley also aid in the many problems that arise. These, along with the honorary mem- bers, are what compose and make the Board of Control a smooth-running group. BOARD OF CONTROL The Board of Control, like the wheels of a constantly moving piece of machinery, works tirelessly at the ever-accumulating job of solving J. B. problems. It is composed of students who have been elected to their various offices, led by the President of the Student Body and sponsored by Miss Howell. The Board has accomplished much this term, doing such things as backing up the Frizzle campaign, supporting various drives and endeavoring to create a more friendly attitude between the grades.

' ' ' ?A3H ELEVEN SAFETY STAFF SAFETY STAFF This year the Safety Staff has been made up of Bert Levin, safety commissioner; Bob Van Valkenburgh, boys ' safety captain; Margie Hellman, girls ' safety captain; Dick House, Eunice Bernstein, Al Godshall, and Harold Martin, lieutenants; Mr. Corley, fac- ulty sponsor. Safety activities are one of the chief func- tions at John Burroughs, thus the safety staff has a great deal of work to do as they take care of all safety affairs. SENIOR SAFETY BOARD A9 ' s and staff sergeants make up the Senior Safety Board. The highest honor given to a safety is the presentation of an E. When a sergeant feels that a safety has performed his job efficiently, he puts him up before the staff for an E. If the staff feels he is eligible, he is rewarded this emblem for his badge. The Safety Board helps keep law and order at J.B., and they do their job well. SENIOR SAFETY BOARD PAGE TWELVE JUNIOR SAFETY BOARD THE JUNIOR SAFETY BOARD JUNIOR AUD SQUAD The Junior Safety Board is made up of A9 ' s and B9 ' s who do not hold an office of Lieutenant or Sergeant, Captain or com- missioner. This board earns its stars by having 75 files for girls and 100 files for boys. The files are earned by holding a job successfully for a certain period of time. The sergeants have the job of giving from 1 to 8 files per week. The Junior Aud Squad is made up of B8 ' s who do not hold any safety offices. The Aud Squad works only during as- semblies, at which time they direct traffic and keep the students in order during the performance. JUNIOR AUD SQUAD PAGE THIRTEEN SENIOR CIVICS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE JUNIOR CIVICS CLUB The Junior Civics Club is made up of B7 ' s, A7 ' s, and B8 ' s who Virish to do their part in improving the school. This year the club has been under the leadership of Virginia Shevlin, Marilyn Blacker, Mickey Shenberg, Ann Reiss, Diane Doughty, and Miss Halverson as faculty sponsor. Every Monday the J.C.C. meets and dis- cusses school problems and practices par- liamentary law. The club also supports all drives and campaigns sponsored by the Senior Civics Club. SENIOR CIVICS CLUB The Senior Civics Club is one of the foremost organizations at I.B. It is com- posed of the civic minded Seniors of our school. The club is led by Margie Heilman, president, and the Executive Committee, which is composed of a selective group of Seniors. This year the club has done a lot of out- standing work, of which J.B.ites are very proud.

THE GENERAL (Fidele Faure) By GEORGE HOFFMAN Unlike the bear, that hibernates in the winter, the General sleeps in the summer. After school is out and all his invaluable assistants have re- ceived a D on their report cards, the General quietly slips off to him- self, where, nobody known, and noth- ing more is heard from him until the clattering feet of the uncouth fresh- men awaken him in September. Through the long, dry autumn days when the sun is turning everything from green to brown and all the agri- cultural class is thinking more of football than begonias, the General is irritable. He feels that nature is conspiring with the students to make his work hard for him and causing the principal to discover garden tools lost in odd corners, rather than to admire the snapdragons and the roses. In the winter the General is glum like the weather. The darker the day the deeper his frown. The harder the wind blows the harder he scolds his class and the less is accomplished. No sooner are the walks swept clean than the wind blows leaves and rub- bish all over them and before the class can do anything about it, the visiting officials arrive and whisper among themselves about the condi- tion of the grounds. But in the spring things are differ- ent. No sooner are the tulips in bloom than a great change comes over the General. His Christmas necktie puts in its appearance, and the skips from blossom to blossom, petting the busy little bees on the head, calling the birdies endearing names and even changing an occasional D to an A for any member of his class fortunate enough to get his atten- tion at the right moment. BACK TO MOTHER EARTH The agriculture class, shown in the side picture, is gaining valuable information. These boys are learning to plant and care for small gardens of their own. In war time and in peace time, this is a very useful and important task.

ALL I believe I can speak for the whole class when I say that we realize we are leaving one of the finest junior high schools in the city when we leave John Burroughs. As our class graduates we will separate, and go to many different high schools, but the friendships and memories of many good times here shall never be forgotten. I would like to thank all the teachers for the splendid cooperation I have re- ceived while working with them on the A9 affairs. I would like to wish all the future A9 classes the best of luck in everything their class attempts. I would rather not say good-bye, so I ' ll just say, Good luck!

B., have decided to leave without cost or obligation, absolutely free of charge, our proudest possessions to the under- dogs, better known to you as the B9 ' s. To start with the top, I, Marilyn Du Gas, leave my long, luscious, lovely red tresses to Mary Shea. No one other than Britton Brown can handle all that charm alone, so we divide it equally between Bob Davis and Sey- mour Rose. That try anything once, but only once, spirit of George Mitchell, we leave to Drummer Boy Arnold Haber. Jackie Swarthout leaves Bradly Hale with deepest regrets. Bob Haves and Betty Rose roll up their piano talent and we give them to Andre Previn, who really doesn ' t need the extra skill. Bill Cope inherits Woodie Hill ' s tan and beautiful physique and we really mean beautiful. I, Rena Cortella, leave my proudest pos- session. Bob Carson, to NO ONE. Carol Smith leaves her blonde curls to Betty Gillispe, who promises faithfully never to put peroxide on them. Melanie Hyman inherits Anne Joseph- son, ummmm, curves. Chester Kidd leaves his pompador to anyone who will buy a rat. Judy Hales leaves her leadership to Lucille Paxton. May she lead her class as well as Judy did ours. Our last wish is that you, the up and coming seniors, will do as well with your new-found gifts as we did when we had them. Signed and Sealed: Lita O ' Neill Witnessed by: Terry Geyer Caroline Yarbrough Barbara Grimsley PAGE THIRTY-FOUR BURR PROPHECY By ANNE JOSEPHSON There sat Jane and Bob Smith across from each other at the table. Jane was eat- ing with a look of annoyance upon her countenance. Just as she thought, he hadn ' t heard a single word she had said. He was busily engrossed in reading the morning paper, upon which the date read Decem- ber, 23, 1956. Suddenly Bob burst forth with, They did it! Who did what, dear? Why, Ray Nagel and Larry Scalia did. It says right here that Raymond Nagel and Lawrence Scalia were elected coaches at Notre Dame. 1 always knew their muscles would get them somewhere. In Geyer ' s Droop Snoop Column it says that Patty Whitemore is the newest glamour girl on the horizon, and that her press agent is Larry O ' Neill. She also says that Giggling Grimsley ' s Revue is at the Paramount, which by the way is owned by Jimmy Walters. Speaking of beauties, I happened to be glancing through Vogue (edited, written, and what-have-you by Jane Knox) and chanced to see a picture of Joan Corbin modeling. She sure is a beaut! I realize your interest in your old pals, but if you don ' t hurry you ' ll be late to the office, and then what will the boss say? said Jane reprimandingly. Aw shucks, I can ' t think of ole pigeon toes Tallmadge as my boss. Suzie Donnell sure turned out to be a good secretary! With this Bob dashed out of the door, only to see Joycie Kalech chasing a fire with one hand on the steering wheel, the other holding a little black book, trying to scoop her fellow reporters. Into the bus he hurried. Seeing that it was driven by Bill Kohagen, he kept his fingers crossed all the time. He burst into the office to find receptionist Winnie Mangold greeting Chester Kidd, but finding to her disappointment that he was selling Fuller Brushes. Once in the office his telephone rang. It was Jane. Darling, she said sugarly, don ' t for- get the tickets to the Palladium tonight. You know Bob Haves and his orchestra is playing there and I ' m dying to hear that vocalist of his, Georgiann Hunt. Now re- member dear, four tickets, as Patti and Bill are going with us. Bob put a memoran- dum on his pad. It was then that he noticed the memorandum above it. See Barbara Burke about drawings for ad. He picked up the phone and spoke to the head of the art department. Say Sterry, send in Barbara Burke im- mediately ... With this we leave Bob ' s office in a turmoil and go back to where we left Jane, hanging up the received on the telephone. Jane turned around to finish the house- work. There went the doorbell. It seemed it was Western Union boy, Jimmy Lasry. Lady, telegram for you. Sign here. She slammed the doo r and set about reading the telegram with trembling hands. What a relief. It was just a wire to tell her that that noted aviator and glamour boy Frank Mahoney was arriving in town via the 11:45 plane. Jane and Bob had known Frank for years, so Jane put on her new spring coat, designed by Krause of Holly- wood, and sped out of the door. Down at the airport Jane bumped into stewardess Gloria Gambord. The two girls went in the airport restaurant to discuss the gossip of the day. Two chocolate sodas, she told soda-jerk Hal Roth. Did you know, Jane resumed her conversation, that . . . We could listen in on Jane ' s conversation and be there until Doom ' s Day. You know how these women will rattle on. So let us just leave Gloria, Jane, and the class of John Burroughs, Summer ' 42, and wish them happy landings.

The drama course helps the pupils in the classes to develope a vocational interest, which they might be able to use in later life. There are many more phases of drama than the actual performance. There is the direction, property, stage crew, make-up, and prompters. All these are taught in the classes. Many professionals have emerged from Mrs. Turner ' s able help. Dickie Jones, Cora Sue Colins, and various others are some of these. Plays when finished are given at as- semblies. Girls ' League and Boys ' Council meetings, and at special occasions. Each term the dramatics class gives the A9 class play, which this year was Wooden Shoes. To prepare for the course a term of pub- lic speaking is required. Students find this course to be one of interest and pleasure. THE ESTABROOK NIECES PAGE THIRTY-SIX FRIZZLES EXPOSED Two innocent nobodies who didn ' t know any better have succeeded in doing some- thing no sane person could have accomp- lished. Namely — cleaning up the yards. Let ' s go into the exciting history of this fabulous campaign. One sunny afternoon two boys began talking while on their bikes. These two boys, at last we can re- veal their names were Bob Haves and Hal Tallmadge. One of them fell off, smashed his head on the pavement and when he woke up he had the FRIZZLE idea. It seems that this idea consisted of call- ing any person found guilty of dropping a , processed piece of papyrus on the campus j grounds a FRIZZLE. At precisely the same moment (almost) Meredith Oliver was recipient of an ex- tremely prodigious blow on the cranium and what happened, so she tells us at least, was the idea of organizing the J.B.S.O. Therefore, the next day when these three personages came to school, it was quite evident that something was going to be done about the yards. The trio liked each other ' s ideas and decided to consolidate them into one great drive, with but one objective. First, the brainstorm was presented to the Leadership Class, who liked the idea and decided something must be done about it. An outline was set down on paper for formal presentation to the various school principals and leaders. Mr. Thomp- son was the first to come to the aid of our yards. To be sure, he was quite enthusias- tic about its possibilities and went as far as to say, I see no bugs in it, yet. Then the Journalism Class began believ- ing in the idea, and so when everyone W - ' B fi W M m saw the headlines FRIZZLES INVADE staring out at him, the amateur journalists were responsible. With that immortal headline the cam- paign began; people began using the term freely; it became a household word. The J.B.S.O. members were stationed about the field as reminders not to throw papers. The Leadership Class, under Miss Howell ' s guiding eye, performed skits on the balcony of the Home Echo building. Very soon it became evident that all FRIZ- ZLES ought to have a hero to look up to. He was impersonated by Larry O ' Neill, who will go down in history as Joe Frizzle; the perfect mate was Joan Frizzle, who has been impersonated by Suzie Donnell. As long as credit is being given where credit falls due, we can thank Marjorie Heilman for the idea of calling the club J. B. S. O. and Gerald Cooper for the won- derful job he did on the FRIZZLE masks. The Dramatics classes did their bit beautifully by performing at assemblies with all the zest and go-getum of seasoned Thespians. And all too soon the drive had spent its opening flurry and settled down to a slow, consistent level of clean yards, and the name FRIZZLE was continually applied to paper-droppers. Perhaps some day fifty years hence an old man or woman shall creak onto the campus and hear the name FRIZZLE shouted at him as he drops his paper earthward; perhaps then he will stop and remember the drive he helped start, and then maybe he will smile and be proud. PAGE THIRTY-SEVEN J. Mabman WOMAN POWER ADVANCES By lERI HERMAN and JOYCE KALECH Working girls, housewives, and mothers have stepped from behind their frilly aprons, and white collars into the various uniforms of the war time organizations and mobilization factory employees. Don- ning blue denim, khaki, and the immacu- late white of the Red Cross Nurses, they ' ve stepped right into the large, capable shoes of the skilled laborers who have joined Uncle Sam ' s armed forces, and right into the parade of workers crusading against the Axis. As their responsibilities and duties increase these women keep morale up but broadening smiles and quickening heart beats as they remember their pledge to Victory. To these workers, the housewives of yesterday, the home defenders of to- morrow — we salute you. A COMPARISON OF ARMY LIFE By BUD MEYERS Although army life differs greatly from ours, it ' s interesting to note some compari- sons. Soldiers all over the world from India ' s sunny clime (pardon me, Mr. Kip- ling) to the cold shores of Iceland, hear the same old bugle call in the morning, reveille. Yet doesn ' t my mother come into my room promptly at 7:30 A.M. and try to wake me up. While soldiers have sargeants to get them up, my mother can do the job just as quickly as any in the army. Then 1 go to school and get shoved around by a couple of sargeants (teachers). I do something wrong and go down to the colonel ' s office (vice-principal) and get sent to the guard house (rock pile). Everything goes on smoothly then with the general (principal) inspecting every so often al- though there is not much connection — if you use your imagination you ' ll see what I mean. THE TELEPHONE By CECILY VAN KEULEN Happiness, sadness, gossip and groans All find their way over telephones. The story of weddings, of deaths, and of sorrow. The voices of heroes which will live on tomorrow, And 1 think if Bell saw his invention today His reaction would be and he ' d be likely to say, I think with the world in this grave situation, This instrument ' s good — linking nation to nation. JEEP By MONROE CLARK No doubt by this title you think of the small Army truck called the Jeep. You see it swishing in and out of traffic, dodg- ing busses and pedestrians, but as a rule it never hits anything. You are probably very interested in it because it is part of the Army ' s equipment. Our family feels the same interest to- ward another kind of Jeep. However, our Jeep swishes in and out of our flowers, much to our regret. Many are his colli- sions, and they will continue to be so until he has become full grown. This may seem to be a short tale, but so is that of Jeep — our dog!

TOMORROW ' S AMERICA By JOYCE KALECH and DICK EAMER Scattered on the foreign battle fields of the world, America ' s Dough Boys are fight- ing in the slime and mud, desert heat, and penetrating cold, doing their part for Uncle Sam. In order to meet the enemy on an equal footing, these men need a consistent flow of materials. Uncle Sam to be repre- sented on those battlefields with the equip- ment your dimes, quarters, and fifty-cent pieces can buy, with your purchase of war time bonds and stamps. What can these few pennies do? One dime can buy three precious bullets for a rifle, a quarter can go into the making of a Browning machine gun, and a fifty-cent piece can put a nose on a bomb. Today boys and girls are taking on war time responsiblility to meet tomorrow ' s demands. By getting behind this tremen- dous effort they are buying their share in Americ a. Tomorrow ' s America.

The slings and splints were an awful disaster. Ah — the victim ' s heart was beat- ing faster; Now the lecture was over, the patient undone, First Aid is one way our war can be won! PAGE FORTY-THREE A TOAST TO THE U.S.O. By NATALIE KROL Our men in service all over the nation, Needed some sort of recreation; Thus America formed the U.S.O. Where our homesick men in service may go. Candy, fmit or any kind of cake That a mother or girl has some time to make, May have a very small unessential part. Yet it can go a long way toward warming a young man ' s heart. And now I know you all can see The thing that most pleases me; That for fun, frolic and all the rest. The U.S.O. has passed the test. TOMMY ' S DOG By JANICE MALSMAN Tommy has a dog now. His very own little playmate, to care for and to love. They were constant companions, as only a boy and his dog can be. When Tommy ' s mother wondered where Tommy was, she had only to listen for the jingle of the dog ' s collar. His rapturous happiness was suddenly interrupted by the fateful day of December 7, and there followed a few nightmarish weeks of uncertainty for Tommy ' s older brother, Philip, was stationed at Pearl Har- bor. The uncertainty was suddenly and horribly ended by a stiff, formal letter from the Navy. Now there was only a dull aching sensation where before he had felt a certain gaiety and lightness. He hoped, he wished he could do some- thing to avenge his brother. Something that would really be a sacrifice so he could feel better, and really square inside, where it really mattered. Then one day he heard a plea over the radio for dogs that were intelligent and that could be trained for war work. Dogs that were intelligent, like his dog. Dogs that would be suitable for this type of work, like his dog. He knew as soon as he heard it that he would soon be lonely again, but he also knew his dog would be doing something useful, even though he. Tommy, couldn ' t do much of anything him- self. His painfully, slowly scrawled letter that offered his dog ' s services was gratefully answered from the officer in charge. The day came at last when he and his dog had to be parted. His father took them to the fateful place, and Tommy painfully surrendered his dog to a kindly attendant stationed there. In the following days he heard people whispering about what a sacrifice Tommy had made, about how unhappy Tommy must be. But was he unhappy? He had lost his playmate, but he had gained a real genuine feeling that he had done some- thing fine for his country. No, he wasn ' t unhappy now. He wasn ' t gay either, but his heart felt almost as if it would burst with pride. He felt really satisfied now deep inside, for he had done something worthwhile for his country. PAGE FORTY-FOUR .A,€: c. 22.C, Zo ' txUJjM. A REAL AMERICAN BOY By JERI HERMAN Jimmy was sick of school and play, So Jimmy decided to run away. He made a pack of a gunny sack, And threw it over his strong young back. Through the yard and into the street, He traveled, his destination to meet. He wanted to join the army, the navy was tempting too. But when he saw a Marine pass by, a new ambition grew. Straight to the recruiting office. Our Jimmy traveled — proud, And stepped right to the desk and spoke up, good and loud. The sign says my uncle needs me, to fight on sea and land. So here 1 am reporting, I ' ll do my job, just grand. The calm and quiet major looked sternly at small Jim, He patted him on the shoulder, and chucked him under the chin. You ' re a little young to fight, He told Jim in voice of praise, But if you want to do just right, Morale you ' ll have to raise. Get your buddies to help collect salvage, It can be used for bullets, and guns. Fill your wagons to the tops. You ' ll be helping and still have fun. Get mommy to bake some cookies, for the boys in service today. Have her send them to the U.S.O. she ' ll find it will really pay. Jimmy listened astounded, Is all of that yet to be done? I ' d better not run away today, but for home I had better run. I ' ll make my mother start baking, my wagon I ' ll drag from the shed, I ' ll start collecting salvage, I ' m going to use my head. So Jimmy, in his glory, headed straight back home, in glee, I guess I can ' t run away today, my Uncle Sam needs me. PAGE FORTY-FIVE J . % i .v N :£; . ' i fl . C ' . «• ; ■..■■ •.

Away from books and classrooms and the events of the fast changing world they have a few happy hours on their school campus and are do- ing a fine job of keeping morale up. Pouce: h ' c VICTORY GARDENS By JOYCE KALECH and JERI HERMAN Wasted hours have been replaced by busy minutes spent by students working in newly acquired Victory gardens. Everyone realizes the dire necessity of giving our soldiers the very best in the United States pro- duce of food, thus by cultivating gar- dens they are providing some of the vegetables in their homes and cre- ating something new on the home front. PAGE FORTY-SIX THE AMAZING GRIMSLEY By BOB HAVES Miss Howell ' s gavel fell heavily on her desk, and a class that was noisy but shouldn ' t have been, came to order. Now boys and girls, began our popu- lar Social Living teacher, we must not have this kind of a room. Grimsley grew tense with a feeling of foreboding. This must not be, continued Miss Howell. How many think this is the kind of a classroom they want? Nary a hand was raised. How many want to improve this class? The teacher scanned the class, searching for signs of rebellion. Every hand was raised for cooperation, save Barbara ' s. Well, Barbara, what do you think? All Grimsley could do was giggle. After sev- eral seconds of deafening silence, Beatsy (Good Samaritan) Challiss came to Bar- bara ' s rescue with the ensuing words: Barbara has caught both hands between the seat and the desk behind. Mr. Eng- berg rushed to the scene with a crowbar and soon had disencumbered our heroine. To this day, no one knows how Grimsley managed to shove both hands up to the wrists into a space that small. MODERN DAY MARK ANTHONY Friends, Burroughsonians, sufferers, lend me five bucks, I just paid my income tax; I come to bury school, not to praise it. The evil that school does will live with us: But the good will be interred with our bones. So let it be with Algebra and Latin. But the Brutes say school is ambitious; And the Brutes are honorable men. School hath kept many captives within its gates. And when the poor wept, the whole school system cried aloud. For they weren ' t receiving their tax money. But my heart is in depths of the driest sub- jects. And 1 must pause ' till it comes back to me so I may enjoy this vacation. — Willy Shakespeare. That ' s the last straw — please pass the toothpicks. Early to bed, early to rise Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise; If it doesn ' t kill him first. — Benny Franklin. MEET THE PEOPLE A Floof is a person who pours hair tonic into a stream and then follows the fish with a portable barber shop offering shaves for twenty-five cents apiece. A Frump is a boy who sprinkles salt on his chest and hopes the hair will come out in search of water. A Jitterbug is a person who puts Mexi- can Jumping Beans in a Mickey Finn to pep it up. PAGE FORTY-SEVEN WORDS TO THE WISE Little boy (while walking in New York for the first time): Daddy, what ' s the name of this big, tall building? Father: I dunno, son. Little boy (15 minutes later): Daddy, what ' s the name of this big park? Father: 1 dunno, son. Little boy (a few moments later): Daddy, what ' s the name of this long street? Father: I really don ' t know, son. Little boy: I hope you don ' t mind me asking you these questions, daddy. Father: Not at all, how will you ever learn if you don ' t ask questions? DISTASTEFUL TASK By SALLY HACKEL I don ' t like to do my Social Living, I don ' t like to do my French; But most of all I hate to do My Algebra — it don ' t make sense. I know 1 shouldn ' t talk that way, And things 1 do are wrong; But I can ' t help from saying That I ' d rather write a song. At night my dreams are haunted, 1 see X plus y plus z; Whirling ' round and ' round me It gets me, as you can plainly see. - ' - MRS. FUERTE AVOCADO SPEAKS By BOB HAVES Ava Cado said to Artie Choke, Have you seen Tom Mato lately? To which Artie replied, Yes, he was strolling down Strawberry Lane with Cauly Flower. That ' s really some romance, but they Cantaloupe because his dad. Paw Tato, is an old Crab Apple, said Ava. I sure feel sorry for Cauly, it looks like she ' ll have to marry Logan Berry after all, retorted Artie. But I don ' t think they ' ll look so well in the Mushroom together, sobbed Ava. And so 1 guess Tom will have to be content with Endive Salad, moaned Artie. Then together they both said, Gee, I hope something will Turnup. But that night Tom Mato sneaked out and brought a ladder to Cauly ' s house and they stole away on his alligator Pear and sailed with the Currant, and were married by Parsnip Plant. PAGE FORTY-EIGHT ■ ) MJ o ceT7e CAPTAINS GYM OFFICERS The Gym captains are elected at the be- ginning of each term to lead the class in its activities. Each of the three classes have a captain and a sergeant and a sec- retary. The sergeants keep a record of the de- merits of the girls. The girls get demerits when they are wearing jewelry or are not properly dressed in their gym clothes, or not in order when the tardy bell rings. The Secretaries take roll and keep a rec- ord of the absences of the girls. These girls have to be up on their school work for they miss some of the work at the begin- ning of the period. ROLL CALL Fall into roll call the captains will say, Roll must be taken, then you can can play. Tummies in and heads up high, Joan has an exer- cise she wants us to try. SECRETARIES SERGEANTS PAGE FIFTY SPORTS AROUND J. B. Your Add! Point Game! One Love! May seem to the ordinary person just a lot of meaningless sentences, but to the girls of Ye olde gym field they are familiar phrases, each with an individual meaning and importance. Your Add, when heard on a tennis court, is a crucial moment in one of J.B. ' s favorite social games — tennis. Point Game also represents the high mo- ment in the most played and liked game on the campus. You guessed it — volleyball. One Love can be the start of a thrilling game of either handball or badminton, less- er known, but still well liked sports at J.B. PING PONG GAMES Shouting loudly and with much glee, There are many exciting games to see. Now you ' re dismissed, go get dressed fast, So you ' ll have time to make your next class.

PAGE FIFTY-TWO SENIOR COUNCIL GIRLS ' LEAGUE COUNCIL The Girls ' League Council consists of a representative from each homeroom who is elected for the office at the beginning of the term to represent all the girls. She at- tends regular monthly meetings and re- ports the girls ' activities to her homeroom. The girls on the Council have a tea for their mothers during the term so the moth- ers can get acquainted with the teacher and Girls ' League. JUNIOR COUNCIL PAGE FIFTY-THREE FLOWER COMMITTEE JUNIOR RED CROSS HOME ECHO PAGE FIFTY-FOUR WAR EMERGENCY COMMITTEE WAR EMERGENCY HELPERS The War Emergency Helpers, sponsored by Miss Reppy and Miss Bailer, made a new committee at John Burroughs this term. It consisted of three groups: story telling for younger children, games for younger children, and songs for little chil- dren. The committee took a course in story telling and is qualified to help in any emer- gency. The Red Cross in New York awarded the girls arm bands to identify them. The girls gave up their noons for ten weeks so that they could learn about story telling and leadership from Mrs. Bas- sett, who very generously gave her time to teach the girls. Carolyn Yarbrough, Jeanne Badham, and Carol Shaffner were the chairmen of the groups. GIRLS ' CAMERA CLUB PAGE FIFTY-FIVE SENIOR GIRLS ' GLEE THE HEART OF JOHN BURROUGHS JUNIOR GIRLS ' GLEE PAGE FIFTY-SIX PAGE FIFTY-SEVEN BOYS COUNCIL OFFICERS BOYS ' OFFICERS The Boys ' Council officers, Frank Mahoney, Ben Cowles, and Frank Roberts have done a good job for our council this semester. They, with Mr. Wilding ' s and Mr. Engberg ' s help, have succeeded in arranging many fine councils, and sponsoring drives in which they were quite successful. They could not have been successful in these activities unless they had full cooperation with all the boys. Two of these activities were the paper drive and the track meet. These officers have left a memor- able mark as many others have done but they have passed this mark and have left a greater and better one for all future council officers to strive for. BOYS ' COURT BOYS ' DEPUTIES PAGE FIFTY-EIGHT AGRICULTURE CLUB PAGE FIFTY-NINE ATHLETICS TODAY BUILD SUCCESS FOR TOMORROW By FRANK BULL To young America, athletics are fun; they are sheer enjoyment of playing phys- ical games which allow you to feel your own strength and show what that strength can accomplish. But more than that, in athletics you are building for yourselves some things which are vitally important to your future. Vigorous, healthy bodies. Clean living and thinking. Coordination. Morale. Foundation for fair competition. In ordinary times, all of these are neces- sary in the development of youth into man- hood. But during times like those of the present, the importance of athletics in the life of every young American increasingly becomes apparent and necessary. A strong body means health and dur- ability. Clean living keeps youth and man alike occupied with constructive objectives. Morale is something we all need in fac- ing the disappointments and tribulations which life brings. The spirit of fair competition, the ability to give and take without flinching will lead a man to success in any field of endeavor he chooses to follow. So, while you are enjoying sports for the sheer fun they give you, realize that they are giving you more than you can derive from any other recreation. Most men who are successful in busi- ness, in journalism, in radio, in the theater or motion pictures, or in any of a dozen other fields of occupation, are men who be- gan participating in. athletics when they were boys. Today they might limit their actual in- dulgence in sports to golf, boating, fishing, hunting or handball, but in school they were active in baseball, basketball, foot- ball, track, gymnastics, swimming, hockey, field athletics or soccer. They are strong men today, and success- ful in life because they learned many vital lessons in athletic competition. My hope is to see a surging new interest in sports develop in young America of today to assure our nation of better pre- pared men for tomorrow, both physically and mentally. Be active, play ball, or get into your spiked shoes and onto the cinder track; take up your tennis racquet, or get into your swimming trunks — but play, and build, and grow strong. You are the America of tomorrow that we ' re fighting for today! A9 ALL-STAR TEAM PAGE SIXTY SUMMARY As the time for the Burr rolls around we will divulge a few facts about the Noon Leagues. First let us take the baseball setup in League I. Arnold Beck and team smashed every team in sight and won with a perfect record. A few of the star play- ers are: Beck, himself, whose homeruns did no end of good, then there was Bob Carson, whose pitching was terrific, and the whole team really was good. In basketball it was a nip and tuck race for the championship with Shaver ■winning after two playoffs. The season was even Steven straight through. When the regular season came to an end there was a tie, so a playoff ensued in which there was a 7-7 tie. In the second playoff in which Shaver from start to finish was winning 16-12. In League II baseball there was a close race in which Andy Smith ' s team won out after having a record of 6-1-1. In the play- off with Beck they lost 18-0. In League II basketball the champs were Red Alper ' s team with a record of 7-0. In the playoffs they lost to older boys 28-1 1 but they played good ball. In the lower Leagues there were all close races. In League IV, A. Stubb ' s team won. In basketball, Calhoun ' s team won in his League. In 4B the lowest of Leagues, the boys participated in the good old J. B. style. The winner in baseball was Don Thompson. In basketball, Sid Krupnick ' s team walked off with the honors. Other sports also have flourished. The Bib Track Meet was a big success for the H. A. S. and Boys ' Council. Handball had another successful season with over one hundred boys entering the handball tournament. Handball, though not a major sport, is very popular.
