It has been our pleasant task to see to the management of the ship through the past year. During that time, we have come to cherish it very much, and we hope it will always be guided by loving hands. But we have not worked alone; your assistance alone made it possible for The Chronicle to sail victoriously, and we wish to thank you, one and all! On the mast of this ship a flag is flying, bearing the letters L. H. H. S. They stand for Lyman Hall High School, but may they not stand also for the ideal attitude toward our school? L—Love, love toward our school, love which will include a just pride in its standing and general life, and loyalty to its activities. H—Honor, our individual honor and the honor of our school; honor in common questions ol right and wrong; honor in the way its affairs are managed; honor which the sportsman has—“Play the game fair.” H—Hope, hope to drive away despair, hope to triumph over defeats, sunny optimism, and faithful courage. S—Service, service to our school, the expression of school spirit in action, Willingness to give our support, time and labor to school affairs, and the proving of our love toward the school by our deeds for it. To all of you, and especially to those of you who will guide The Chronicle, may these always be the ideals of your school life—Love, Honor, Hope and Service.

We are glad that you have come, and we want you to feel that the Class of 24 is most grateful to you for the great part you all have played in giving to us this night which will be treasured in the Storehouse of Memory forever. Florence Koletzke. PILOTS OF DREAM SHIPS “Lo! Creation’s self is one great choir, And what is nature’s order but the rhyme Whereto the world keeps time, And all things move with all things from their prime? Who shall expound the mystery of the lyre? In far retreats of elemental mind Obscurely comes and goes The imperative breath of song, that, as the wind, Is trackless, and oblivious whence it blows.” —William Watson. Come with me into the Land of Imagination and Dreams. There, there lies a big, beautiful sea, a sea of ever-changing moods and colors. One may reach its shores of shining sands through the doors of music, poetry, nature, art, or literature. On this Sea of Fancy, as it is called by some, sail many ships. And all these ships are sailing on to a single destination, passing through the golden gates to the harbor of Fame and Everlasting Glory. Xow, we are standing on its shores, watching the calm water which is occasionally ruffled by some passing breeze. Suddenly, a faint speck rises over the horizon. A tiny mast appears—a pair of snow-white sails, and soon the outline of a dainty, little ship. The water seems bluer, and it sparkles more joyously as the ship approaches. The skies are clear, and Heaven itself smiles upon the delicate craft. Light breezes waft it on, and it comes swifter and swifter, in a peculiar, dancing rhythm that is all its own. From the far-off land from which it sails, it brings a cargo of treasures. Hidden deep in its hold lie the purest of pearls, fashioned from the foam of the dashing waves of the sea. Then, there are delicate and minutely-carved figures of ivory and fair sandalwood. What beautiful tapestry it bears! What a perfect harmony of colors! One portion has the soft flush of rosy dawn, while another has the deep blue of the ocean. But the pilot—“Who is he?” we ask. Who could it be other than that wonderful man, Chopin, the composer? He is the one who makes our heartsTHE CHRONICLE 3 beat with joy at the realization that Spring is at hand. His was the precious secret of blending into glorious music that season of new life and awakening, Spring; and with it he often added a touch of sweet melancholy that tenderly fills some of his songs with a moving sadness. Who has not felt the fascinating, unique sway of his waltzes? Who has not had some deeply-hidden chord touched by one of his nocturnes? Chopin has borne his cargo to a most receptive world; to a world that will never forget him, and will sometimes stop in the midst of its turmoil, to listen, for a moment, to his sweet, dreamy music, and then go on, feeling more refreshed and invigorated for having had that moment of ecstasy. But—look! Another ship is rapidly coming into view, bringing with it the wrath of Jove himself. The skies grow dark, and ominous sounds of thunder mutter in the distance and finally end in a mighty crash of thunder. The wind is rising and comes sweeping down upon the sea in a furious gale. The strong, heavily-built ship withstands the mad tempest, and comes determinedly on. One gains the impression of hidden strength and vigor from its appearance. The cargo of magnificent, sturdy oak and massive framework for huge structures is worthy of that imperial ship. Lofty monuments for heroes of the ages will be fashioned from the heap of marble and granite. The pilot stands upon the deck, steering his ship safely through the trials and struggles of storms and tempests. Richard Wagner fears nothing. He knows his cargo is of the best. He is certain it will endure for centuries, for he has poured his soul into its making and feels satisfied to think what he has done is worthy of his genius. George T. Ferris says, “The poet-musician Wagner rightfully claims that in his music-drama is found the wedding of two of the noblest of arts, Music and Poetry”; and Shakespeare says, “One God is God of both.” This puts the character of Wagner’s music in its true perspective. Wagner, a wonderful combination of two great arts, has, in a most masterful way, combined poetry and music into powerful and tempestuous creations. While this regal ship passes on, another is not far behind. The atmosphere again changes and becomes very peaceful and calm. Everything lies in a state of perfect quiet except for a passing cloud, so white and fluffy, which drifts silently along as if afraid to disturb the symphony of peacefulness. How very stately the craft looks! Its very simplicity gives it a dignified air. It is typical of its pilot, John Sebastian Bach, who is gravely steering his ship through the calm waters. He is bringing precious gems and wonderfully, most intricately woven fabrics to the world. His cargo will always be a model for others. He is proclaimed King of Classical Music, and his themes for the organ are famous for their beauty and depth. Hubbard says, “What Shakespeare is to literature, Rembrandt to portrait painting, and Michael Angelo to sculpture, John Sebastian Bach is to organ music. Bach was so great that he had no artistic jealousy, no whim, and when harshly and unjustly criticized, he did not concern himself enough with the quibblers to reply. The man who thus allows life to justify itself, and lets his work speak, and who, when reviled, reviles not again, must be a very great and lofty soul.” Thus it is. Ships are passing by forever and ever. All are different—some strikingly so; yet all have a common bond. Their one goal and destination is the great storehouse of Immortal Works. Here lie the creations of many, the treasures of centuries. An understanding heart and an appreciative mind—these are the keys to the storehouse. Enter, all who desire, and find there glorious music—music expressive of every human emotion—music, the language of the soul. Florence Koletzke.4 THE CHRONICLE SECURING WORLD PEACE Competitive Essay At the present time it is becoming more and more evident to thinking people that wars in the future must be avoided. The ideal civilization that we are striving for has no place for war. The instruments of war, as now being developed, will make armed conflict too terrible for the human race to endure. To keep away from these horrors, extensive measures will have to be taken. The people of the entire world must be educated in peace. Co-operation of governments needs to play a prominent part. Speaking broadly, intellectual and political advancement will provide the means of securing world peace. Education of a sort that would foster peace must be far-reaching. It must include everyone. To have the world progress, its inhabitants must progress individually. Education should not be reserved for the highest; the lowest and poorest classes of every land should have its advantages. Our country is forward in this respect. Anyone with a little ambition may receive instruction and make something of himself. The opportunities offered here are far greater and better tham those of many other nations. The people here are learning more and are constantly seeking a better condition of affairs. They see and desire the benefits of peace, though many, fearing to be thought pacifists, are unwilling to do anything to contribute to ultimate peace. These people think that such a move might be unpatriotic, although it would really be of great value to the nation, The educational systems of the more backward countries need improvement. When the authorities in control of these governments meet this need their countries will be able to hold a higher rank among the powers of the world. Their people will have higher and nobler ideals, gained while receiving their education for peace. A thing that has caused much unnecessary strife has been the establishment of national boundaries without regard to the different kinds of people brought together or separated. This has been chiefly true of small countries, where sections of land frequently pass from the hands of one country to those of another. People of one race, and with certain customs, are split and made to join with people of entirely different ideas. The result of this has been a great deal of turmoil and unrest. To eliminate it, boundaries should be fixed, as far as possible, according to the race and inclinations of the people living in the land concerned. This policy was carried out to a certain extent after the late World War. The question of government and control in securing universal tranquility is an important one. It is clear that there must be some co-operation among governments. Civilization has seen the advance from the family to the tribe, to the old city state, to the national forms of government. Will there ever be an international government? Time will tell. At present, a practical, working combination of the best ideas of the present League of Nations and the World Court seems advisable. There should be a legislative body composed of representatives from the nations, given enough power to be able to act with some degree of certainty and efficiency. They should decide the relative standings of the member nations and questions like reduction of armaments. An executive body would inform the nations of the manner of carrying out the agreements made. A judicial body of responsibility and dignity would hear and give decisions on cases between countries. This department would necessarily be very important, as it would be the highest word of authority. This working together of governments, which will simplify many otherwise unsolvable difficulties, along with the achievements of the education of the future, will be the essential feature in the program of securing world peace. Henry Burghoff.THE CHRONICLE 5 THE QUEST Valedictory Essay “To every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way, And the high soul climbs the high road And the low soul gropes the low, And in between, on the misty flats, The rest go to and fro. But to every man there openeth A high way and a low, And every man determineth The way his soul shall go.” In the olden days, the days of chivalry, it was the custom for knights to set out upon a quest and give hand and heart to fulfilling it. It was not with the knights that seeking originated, nor did it end with them. The desire to seek is ages old—as old as man is. You see it in every page of history. Every man has a search in life, whether it is for wealth, or power, or just his daily bread. But beneath and above all other searches there is another and a greater—that of the heart and soul. Some indescribable longing calls us to enter this quest. Sometimes it comes with the dawn from the Land of Unknown Things. It may come with the sound of wonderful music. It may come when we look into the eyes of someone who is very pure and good. It may come just at dusk, when the beautiful sunset gates are opened in the West. It may come at night, when we gaze at distant, shining stars and wonder at a beauty we cannot understand. But to everyone this longing comes, for in each of us lies a seed of divine discontent, and we know not how to explain it, nor exactly why and what we desire—but men call it Truth. Tonight, we, too, are setting out to new fields of adventure and noble deeds. We, too, shall undertake the quest for Truth. And, first, we should ask ourselves what it is. Truth is the Great Principle of the Universe. We cannot say exactly what this Principle is, but we believe it is Love and Goodness. It is to be seen in all that is worthwhile, and good, and beautiful, in life. The most beautiful flowers, the loveliest songs, reveal Truth; but Truth, which governs these flowers and songs, is still more beautiful and lovely. When we understand fully this Principle, this Law of Life, it will enable us to live in complete harmony and happiness. Sometimes we are afraid to look for it lest we should cease to be happy. This is not so. In Truth’s path dangers, troubles, and crosses lie, but also true joy. There is no happiness in wrong. Indeed, Truth is the secret of real happiness. Now, how can we find this wonderful thing? By holding it the highest thing in life. Truth is very precious, and the price of obtaining it is great—complete devotion. He who would find Truth must, at the first step, dedicate everything to his cause; at no step, hold anything dearer; at every step, be willing to sacrifice all for it. The search for Truth is told by Olive Schreiner in a beautiful allegory called “The Hunter.” In this story, a hunter sees in a lake, the reflection of a beautiful, silvery-white bird—Truth. In a moment it is gone, but within him. burns the consuming desire to see it again. So he spreads a net of wishes and gathers many birds—but Truth is not there. At last, Wisdom tells him if he would find Truth he must enter the Land of Negation and Denial, and then climb many high mountains and suffer much. So he sets free the birds of his wishes; he leaves his friends and goes alone, an outcast, seeking Truth. He travels a long way, where never man went before; he overcomes temptations; he climbs many jagged rocks. Somewhere above is Truth. Lonely and weary and brave, he6 THE CHRONICLE spends all his life cutting steps up the mountain. Finally, in his dying moments, he looks back over the steep path. He has given up everything; and lo! there comes to him at last, just at death, one white feather of Truth. His sacrifice, his labor, was worthwhile. Truth always is. There is another thing to learn from this story. As death drew near, the old hunter looked back, and where he had made a path he saw future generations coming up toward Truth, and he cried joyfully, “They will mount, and on my work! They will climb, and by my stair! They will find her, and through me! And no man liveth unto himself, and no man dieth unto himself.” So it is that he who seeks Truth may never find it here. He may be called upon to lay down his life when he is just beginning the search, or he may have to spend all his life climbing one mountain. But what does it matter, so long as someone finds it? Mankind, as a whole, is greater than its parts. Most of us believe in the ideal of permanent world peace. We may never live to see it, but for the sake of our future brothers let us make the search for it easier by clearing the path, by cutting steps up the mountain. And surely, we, too, shall have a part in the finding. hen the minds of so many of us are like the shallow ground in the parable. For an hour, a day, we follow Truth. Then we cease to believe in it; we cease to seek. To find Truth we must believe in our search. Our Master said, “Seek and ye shall find.” Is it not true? If men seek gold, they find gold. If they seek fame, they find fame. Only, Truth is rarer than gold; it is more elusive than fame; it is more precious than material things. Therefore it is harder to find; it requires a longer and higher search; but those who seek perseveringly will find it, for even death cannot end this quest. We must have supreme confidence in Life’s unfailing goodness and in Love’s eternity. Without this, our hearts will be weak and faint, and we shall give up. We need faith, the faith he had whom Browning described as “One who never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph, Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better, sleep to wake.” And now—where is the pathway to Truth? It is here, it is there, it is everywhere. There is only one road to it—Life’s road. Every road of life will lead to Truth if we but make it. Too often we think of the highway to Truth as apart from everyday existence, something very nice to travel if we had time—on a holiday, for example. Sometimes we think of it as solitary and isolated. But this is false. Where is Truth itself? It is not just in the cloister or the hermit’s cell. The kingdom of God—Truth—lies all about you and within you. “To thine own self be true,” said Shakespeare. That does not mean we should be self-centered. “Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul, May keep the path, but will not reach the goal, While he who walks in love may wander far, Yet God will bring him where the blessed are.” He who would find Truth must have his eyes open to everything beautiful and good, but also he must look for it among the poor, the sick, the unfortunate. He must see it in the church, but he must not forget to visit the slums, the charity homes, and the prisons. Sir Launfal, you remember, found the Holy Grail only when he loved the beggar at his gate. Until we believe that Truth is good and is everywhere, and can see it shining through misery and sin, we shall not find it. It is only by the eyes of love we can see this vision. There is Truth in every fellow man and on every pathway—it is there we must seek it—we must find it there! We are setting out on Life’s road as knights on the quest for Truth. AndTHE CHRONICLE 7 these are the lessons Life will teach us—love!—give!—serve!—those are the things one must do to find Truth. The world needs us as never before—to give our best, though it be little, in its cause. “Go and toil in any vineyard, Do not fear to do and dare; If you want a field of labor, You can find it anywhere.” And this is the quest, and the only quest, in which we are sure to find happiness. Classmates: Tonight we are bidding good-bye to our school and to each other. We are knights setting out on our journeys. In every pathway there is a battle to be fought for the Truth we profess to be seeking. Now our hearts are high and joyous with the triumph of four years’ labor. With shields bright and hearts pure, we are facing Truth’s path. On this path, there will come times of doubt and uncertainty. We shall not see the road clearly; we shall lose our way and falter. But the night will pass, and if we have faith we shall overcome despair. Light will be given to us. As we go along our way, we shall need strength—-of body, mind and soul. We shall need strength for each day’s work, strength to bear our burdens, strength in the days of weariness and sacrifice. But each step, each burden, will make us stronger—strength will be given to us. But most of all, we shall need courage. It may be that Truth’s vision will point out a new, strange way for us to follow, or perhaps a common, tiresome way. We shall need courage to give up all things for an end we may never see. We shall need courage to suffer in silence, to face our task squarely. Yet if the Right is on our side—what have we to fear? Nothing. Courage will be given to us. Life is very good, and in seeking Truth we shall be happy. Sacrifice itself will be a pleasure. Joy fills our hearts now—joy because there is no higher privilege than to seek for Truth. And the end of our search is sure. “Be strong! We are not here to play, to dream, to drift; We have hard work to do, and loads to lift. Shun not the struggle; face it; ’tis God’s gift.” Caroline Keeler. CLASS SONG Four years have passed, and the time is drawing near. When we must go along our way, and leave our high school dear; But when we leave this building, and our journey’s wider span. May the memory of old Lyman Hall give us strength to play the man. Chorus: Lyman Hall, we shall firmly make this vow: Always to try our best, to keep your name as fair as now. In years to come, in our work and play, we’ll fondly recall All the good times that we have had at dear old Lyman Hall. Helen Todd, ’24.8 THE CHRONICLE CLASS POEM We’ve reached one crossroad in life’s journey here When from the doors of Lyman Hall so dear, We turn our footsteps to the world outside, And by the right or wrong our lives shall guide. We all should choose the road which leads to right; This is the only course that makes for might; If not for might or fame, for truth and good, But rather good than fame, if choose we would. The way we travel may be often steep, The pathway narrow, and with pitfalls deep, And rugged be the rocks which bar our way But ever onward shall we go each day. Through storm and sunshine, let us upward climb, With hope and faith and love to help each time, A heavier load to lift becomes our share, Or greater hardships we are forced to bear. Let all our thoughts be on what lies ahead. The star of fate by which our feet are lead Will guide us to the goal, our journey’s end, Where peace, success, and joy together blend. Jennie Wooding TODAY’S MOST NOTABLE EXPERIENCE When I awoke this morning, the first thought that came to my mind was of school. It was the first time in my life that I had ever greeted the thought of going back to school with a smile. I think it is because I am just beginning to realize what an education really means. In previous years, when the first day of school arrived I was not any too happy. I looked upon the coming school year as one of hard work and little pleasure, but now my thoughts are just the reverse. Now I look upon my school work as a game like basketball or football. I look upon my graduation from high school as a goal which I am to strive for, and which will only be attained by hard work. When I entered the school building this morning I could hardly believe I was in the right place, because of the large number of strange faces that I saw. As I looked at these strangers, whom I presume were Freshmen, a thought suddenly entered my mind. I wondered just how many of those pupils would be here three years from now. Last year, when I saw the new people, or Freshmen, stroll along the corridors, a quite different thought entered my mind from the one of this year. I wondered how much athletic ability was in this new class. This year their athletic ability is the least of my troubles. I am just reaching the age in my life where I think that school work is supreme over athletics and everything. Indeed, I think my most notable experience of today is the change in my attitude toward school. Patrick J. Sullivan. September, 1923.THE CHRONICLE 9 IN MEMORIAM The thought that you from us did depart, Leaves us with a sad memory, And shadows of grief envelop our heart, When you in our midst we don’t see. Your ready smile was like the bright sunshine, Your voice ever seemed to bring comfort and cheer, Your nature was generous, and earnest, and loyal, We’ll cherish your school life, your memory hold dear. You answered the summons which all must obey. You left us, to live in God’s heaven above, And there we shall meet you, dear Patrick, some day, And rejoice together in His realm of love. -10 THE CHRONICLE ROLL CALL Helen Barnes “Helen” No matter where we see Helen’s face, Without looking far we find Cousin Grace.

CLASS HISTORY Our high school adventures began in the fall of 1920, when, one bright, sunshiny day, one hundred and sixty tearful, nervous, and very quiet, little tots stumbled wearily into Lyman Hall. We were immediately given the name of “Scrubs”; why, we never found out. Perhaps it was because we looked so polished and scrubbed up; but, at any rate, “Scrubs’ we were. We were taken aback by the haughtiness of the Sophomores, mystified by the actions of the Juniors, and over-awed and terrified by the lofty and inspiring (?) Seniors. As soon as our timidity began to wear off, we met one morning in our vast and beautiful auditorium to elect our class officers. After many struggles with papers and pencils, and after being carefully warned that each one was not supposed to vote for himself, we elected our president, Raymond DeRoy. It was he who proved to us that there is truth in the saying, “All good things come in small packages.” Before the meeting was brought to a close, we chose the class colors—Green and White—which were symbolic of us at that time. That year passed very quickly, but not before the very loving and tenderhearted (?) Sophs gave us a Hallowe’en party at which we all shone when it came to getting the prizes. We went to all basketball, football, and baseball games that year and contributed generously (?) when the hat was passed around. Vacation came all too quickly that year. Oh—yes, it did not! The next fall found us eagerly waiting for our trustworthy janitors to open the school doors, through which we wanted to enter to obtain more knowledge in the line of throwing chalk, getting dances at basketball games, and getting the maximum results from our school work with the minimum effort. We were very sorry to find, however, that many of our former classmates were not among us when the roll call was taken. This was mostly because some of them had found better occupations than attending school, such as minding babies, shining shoes, peddling papers, polishing knives, and others just as good. We held a class meeting as quickly as we dared, and with Emma Reyhon as our president, plans were soon under way for the Freshman Hallowe’en party, for which they (now the Juniors) are still thanking us. Then came the sleigh ride to Meriden, where we went to the Community Playhouse, we being at that time very sporty and daring in spending our money. After startling Meriden with our very up-to-date appearance (for many of us had ransacked the family closets and looked as if we were dressed for the weather that they have at the North Pole), we started for our home town. We safely reached home that same night, after hitting one truck (which marred the beauty of two or three of our members), and carefully (?) skidding and dodging all others. Next in importance came our Class Day, March 17. This was a gala event, as the girls wore bells on their—er—well, skirts, green hair-ribbons on their hair, and each held a large, lime lollypop in her hand. The boys were decked here and there with sprays of green, and indeed looked very nifty. They likewise were given lollypops, but these, instead of being carried by them, were eaten. EvenTHE CHRONICLE 31 our teachers’ dark forebodings of what would happen to us if we kept on acting so silly did not discourage us from seeing the bright side of life that day. Then one day, in our new auditorium, we, the happy-go-lucky Sapheads (this being our new nickname), presented to the rest of the overwhelmed school a short, but very cleverly-acted play, called “Rip Van Winkle.” Didn’t Henry Elias and Caroline Keeler act their respective parts as Mr. and Mrs. Rip Van Winkle wonderfully? We’ll say so! Our very nymph-like fairies and jolly Dutch gills and boys acted so well that it was generally believed that we had hired Flo Ziegfeld’s American Beauties. June came, and oh! how many were the sighs that filled the Sophomore rooms when we heard we should have to put our books away for ten whole weeks. But after being carefully interviewed by our teachers, we finally saw it was for the best, and so let it go at that. But next fall, when we sat in the Junior rooms—didn’t our noses go right up in the air? We elected our officers and started out on our third voyage. The seas were pretty rough. First, we had a grand and glorious picnic at Wharton Brook, with, of course, the ever-present dogs. That’s where some of our members started getting plump, for they laughed and grew fat while watching Miss Gorton and Mrs. Lambson trying to run a potato race. Then, of course, following the example set by our most worthy predecessors, we gave our Junior Play. The Seniors and the Class of 1922 enjoyed the financial success of “Mice and Men,” for they received the benefit of a scrumptious Prom at the Armory. Time went so fast that berore we realized it we were in the auditorium, pricking our fingers and getting in the way while we were trying to decorate the place for the outgoing Seniors. It made us feel rather sorry to see them go, but we consoled ourselves by thinking that perhaps the other classes would feel the same way about us the next year. Ouch! Our wisdom teeth came in this last fall, for we were full-fledged, dignified (?) Seniors. So dignified, indeed, that we are said to have disgraced the honorable name. Some of us were becoming quite large—in length, breadth and thickness—so we had to have a large president, who was “Hopper” Cox. Then we started on our way rejoicing. Of course, we had a picnic. And, of course, it was at Wharton Brook. And, of course, we had dogs again, and a wonderful time. Some of our more daring ones enjoyed someone’s nice, ripe muskmelons. Even Mr. Earley ate a piece. A Senior Dance followed shortly and the old gym did look pretty nifty. It should have! Everyone had a fine time. One of our handsome members enjoyed herself to such an extent that she—well—kneeled on the floor while trying to dance. Naturally, we couldn’t be outdone by the Juniors, so we presented “Come Out of the Kitchen.” Everybody came out! Wasn’t it great? We think so. Really, money isn’t all we think about, but we certainly were glad to know we had earned enough to pay up all our debts and do a lot of other things we wanted to. Then, the Juniors invited every one of us to their Prom. We really had a good time, and we shall be everlastingly grateful to them to think that they could make us behave so well. We didn’t know we had it in us. Our years in high school have flown by so rapidly that we catch our breath as we look back over these four happy years. Something seems to pull at our heartstrings, and tears are mingled with smiles as we bid goodbye to Lyman Hall. C. Thorpe, ’24; F.

Herbert Pickett, Chairman. CLASS WILL We, the Class of 1924 of Lyman Hall High School, Town of Wallingford, County of New Haven, State of Connecticut, United States of America, Western Hemisphere, The Earth, having spent four years, more or less, within these walls where we have received our high school education, along with which, free of all expense, we have understood the meaning of supreme joy, deep humiliation, many trials and afflictions, now, at last, having survived the severe buffeting which we have encountered during the past few years, having been proclaimed proficient by various tests and examinations in which we have learned that a celibate is not an imbecile, and having been put through certain chemical tests in the laboratory, and thoroughly inspected by the faculty’s compound, triple-reflecting, self-adjusting microscope, and declared to be mentally perfect but physically shattered, knowing that our time here is limited and our final parting close upon our heels, we, the said Class of 1924, do solemnly and in due form declare this to be our Last Will and Final Testament, and do revoke all former documents of such a character. On the night of our departure we earnestly entreat that our simple requests be carefully obeyed by all those concerned, to the best of their ability. But, in spite of our immediate parting, we wish to be wrapped in many memories and do entreat everyone to see that they are altogether pleasant.THE CHRONICLE 43 First: We do request that a sufficient sum of money be set aside for the purchase of handkerchiefs to be distributed among those present on the night of our departure, and that a double amount be given to the members of the faculty, for we know that rivers of tears and loud laments will spring from that- source. Second: To the Class of 1925 we do bequeath rooms 1 and 3 and all the contents thereof, respectfully imploring the powers that be not to seat the members of said Class of 1925 in assemblies in alphabetical order, but to grant them the privilege of sitting in whichever of the aforesaid rooms they please, so that the dire calamity which befell Anna Roche and Alyce Griffin will not happen next year to Catherine Flood and Rita Sekowski, but that they may be united and enjoy a blissful existence together, just as Caroline Keeler and Florence Koletzke did this year; And we do further bequeath to the said Class of 1925 our sound judgment, and we do advise them to use this in the election of their senior president, that their class meetings may be conducted as genially, diplomatically and efficiently as ours have been by our worthy president, Edward Cox. Third: To the Class of 1926 we do bequeath the domination of the remainder of the school and its grounds, provided they keep them in the excellent condition in which we now leave them. Fourth: To the Class of 1927, upon their timely departure from the infantile stage of life, we do bequeath our grown-up feeling, for soon, upon our entrance to other spheres, both commercial and academic, we expect to feel as inexperienced as they did last fall. Fifth: To the Class of 1928 we bequeath our good will. Beyond that, we make no special gift, for, we think, there will be sufficient to occupy their minds when they enter upon high school life. Sixth: To jolly Janitor Jenkins and his worthy assistant, Janitor Tyler, we bequeath the contents of the waste-baskets in rooms 1 and 3, all scraps of paper, abandoned pieces of chewing gum, pencil stubs, and broken pen points of the aforesaid rooms. Seventh: To the Faculty we bequeath the remainder of our possessions. They are to be divided evenly, with the exception that Miss Mitchell and Miss Burdon, our ever-faithful patronesses, receive a double allotment, and if there are no worldly goods left from our bequeathments, we give them our sincere gratitude and humbly ask pardon for our various misdemeanors. We personally make the following bequests: I, Frank Niziol, do leave my supply of excellent Hair Groom to Robert Seekamp, in order that he may control his wayward locks. I, Carol Thorpe, do bequeath my numerous giggles to Lottie Kraszewski. I, Matthew Gammerino, do bequeath my curls to the highest bidder. We, Teckla Pierson, Grace Hough, Ruth Wolf and Herbert Pickett, do bequeath what seems most obviously superabundant on us to the long, lean, and lank Kenneth Johnson. I, Everett Hall, do bequeath my obstreperous voice to Russell Phelan. I, Henry Elias, do bequeath my art of juggling dinner plates about on the tips of my fingers, to Israel Caplan. In Witness Whereof we have subscribed our names and affixed our seals on this twentieth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty-four, and in the year of our class the fourth. CLASS OF 1924. Signed, sealed, published, and declared by the above-named Class as its Last Will and Final Testament, in the presence of us who have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses.

Busy,” retorted Jack abruptly. “Just for a moment, Jack. I can’t get this geometry and I’m going to Ruth’s for supper,” persisted his sister. “Oh! shut up. You’re always pestering me with your old home work. I always knew girls couldn’t use their brains. I’d like to know what you’d do if you didn’t have me? Anyway, can’t you see I’m busy? I’ve got to get these wires connected because Tom’s coming over later on to listen in,” yelled Jack angrily (perhaps forgetting that Barbara was not yet deaf). “Oh, yes, you’d do more for your friends than for your own sister. But if it was Amy Harris who asked you. you would do it in an instant. Never mind. I’ll ask Ruth to help me. You probably don’t know how to do it yourself,” flamed Barbara. “What’s the matter, Barb? Oh, yes, that geometry. I’ll do it; just run along like a good little girl,” said Jack innocently. All the answer he received was an infuriated slam of the front door. Later on, Jack confided to Tom, “Whew! Girls certainly are the limit, aren’t they? Especially sisters; they blow up about the least little thing. I had a narrow escape from Barb this afternoon. Gee! I’m glad she’s gone for the evening.” And Barbara to Ruth at table, “Boys certainly are awful. I just asked Jack' to give me a little help in home work and he yelled at me as though I’d done something terrible.” “Hello! Jack. Did you have a nice time?” greeted his sister as she came in about nine o’clock. “Dandy! Did you?” “Splendid!” retorted Barbara, as though nothing had ever happened between them. Oh! well, they’re brother and sister and have privileges. Elizabeth Urban, ’27. The Shrinking Apple The world of today is a great deal smaller than that of four hundred and twenty-five years ago. Do not become alarmed! I do not mean that a great geographical change is reducing the girth of this great apple (that is what our grammar school geographies compare it to!) What is implied is that the superior traveling facilities and message service is shortening the distance between points. Years ago man was his own traveling device; but, finding that means of traveling (his legs) inadequate to supply the desired speed, he pressed the camel and horse into service. After the invention of the wheel, the chariot was used as a mode of travel. With the centuries came the wagon and the carriage, each improvement meaning to increase the speed. Man soon outgrew the slow but steady gait of the horse, and invented the steam engine, which was quickly adapted to drive the wheels of a vehicle; thus came the locomotive. Then arrived the automobile and, most recently, the aeroplane. In a similar manner, we can trace the development of the ship, from the small, open, rowboat to theTHE CHRONICLE 46 majestic Leviathan. Not only has man learned to travel faster, but he has also found out how to hasten the passage of messages. In the olden days, messages were delivered by carriers. Later came messengers on horse. Many people of long ago used fires to send messages. To supply the need of more speed, the telegraph was invented. Then came the quickest and, perhaps, the most efficient carrier of all, the wireless. Will this squeezing of the apple mash it to a pulp? No! It will force all the juice of hatred and desire for war from it, for it will bring all men into a great bond of brotherhood. Thus will international peace prevail and happiness reign supreme.
