2 THE CHRONICLE SALUTATORY ADDRESS Friends, teachers, and parents, forget the sadness that is mingled with the joy of this evening—for there is sadness and sorrow in parting—and think how much sweeter and clearer to you is the happiness that has felt the touch of sorrow. 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 hearts

uflie djlrrmticle June, 1924 Senior dJas OUR CHARGE TO YOU! “History repeats itself” and again The Chronicle has completed her voyage. 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.

THE 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.
