STORY AND VERSE 113 THE " ONCE-WAS " By Gail Martin She was once a warship, Now her days are done. For ' tis her luckless lot, To be denied the glory Of death in one last fight. Her ' s it is to hug the wharf, Too old for use — Too fine to wreck. And so left here to rot in peace — ■ A once-was. Tllh ' . EARLY RISER By Ailleen Ross I think I would Be very Strong And face the world With a brave look And valiant lace — If hut one. Just one. Thing could he avoided. Would I could Skip the frosty dawn, The chilly daybreak — And someone else Would close the window. Why can ' t my days Begin at in ion ? EMILY DIKINSON By Margaret Worth She closed the garden gate On her divine minority. What mattered earth to her? She never needed space Who primly slipped eternin Into a tiny song.

112 THE A R T I S A X S ' 36 THE SCIENCE MAX By Layton Moore To most people a scientist is a strange form of being that never has any fun and wastes his whole life studying something that no one under- stands and that never does any good. One man, by the name of Michael Faraday, was called a fool because he played with glass jars. Roentgen was likewise called a fool for he was continually experimenting with glass tubes of different shapes. But both (if these men turned out to be among the world ' s greatest immortals. Faraday ' s experiment with a glass jar (tech- nically called Leyden jar) ended in the harnessing (if nature ' s most pow- erful force, electricity, and Roentgen was the discoverer of X-rays, both of which are very essential to our modern life. You are wrong again when you say that he never has any fun. lor Robert Millikan, one of our greatest scientists, enjoys his game of tennis and golf as well as any person would. You are wrong fur the third time when you say he never does any good, but he does study ; most likely hard- er than any person does. When we speak of a scientist we usually mean a physicist, and to show just how hard a man must study to become a scientist, or physicist, I would say he must know all there is to know. Mainly, he has to have a greater knowledge of mathematics than any other person. Albert Einstein, perhaps the most widely known scientist, is considered the world ' s greatest mathematician. Before a scientist begins research work, he must learn everything that is known about light. gravity, sound, the atom, electricity, magnetism, and strange to say even astronomy. Most of the above mentioned things are unknown to you, but they are things about which our daily lives revolve. You cannot name one of them that is not affecting you this very moment. Even if a person has learned all of these things he still might be a failure as a physicist. A scientist ' s job is unlike any other. A business man does not need to have any interest in his work, but a scientist does. As I said, even if a person has learned all there is to learn, he might be a failure as a scien- tist, for a scientist ' s job is to find out what is not learned, although he must have all knowledge there is in order to do this. And in order to find what is not learned he must have a limitless imaginati on, for he is continually working with things that are best explained by saying they are and they aren ' t. True, a person must work in order to become a scientist and even then failure is often the result, but to him who succeeds in this field goes the richest rewards. Not only rewards in money, but rewards in satisfaction. Satisfaction that he has done something for the world by which he can be remembered. For the scientist does not merely exist : he lives, and has a seal in the theatre of the universe from where he can watch, and enjoy thoroughly the greatest show of all, that of nature.

114 T II E A RT 1 S A N S ' 3 6 DAWN AND SUNSET By Selma E. Moidel Dawn and t he world awakens From its peaceful slumber. The pinkish hues of the morning sun Are tinting the hills and valleys. What can this new day brin ? Perhaps a smile, perhaps a tear. Hut always inspiration ! As it turns a page in the book of life It turns our hearts once more To the God of Eternal Hope — Dawn ! Sunset — the darkness has triumphed And the world returns to its slumber. But o ' er the distant hills and valleys Spreads a blanket of flame and gold, The last adieu of a dying day. Reluctantly it falls from view With one brief pause as if to say, " ' A day has passed — a day well done What matters if there was a tear? There ' s always inspiration ? " As it turns a page in the Book ol Life So turn our hearts once more To the ( rod of Peace, and Rest, and Memory — Sunset ! NOCTURNE By Gail Martin Majestically she passed With every sail set Undaunted by the waves that broke Against her plunging prow. She was an old ship Of such massive beauty Yet such queenly grace She seemed a very dream ship That must vanish with the dawn.
