Graduation, from the senior's point of view, is an accomplish-
ment--an attaimnent. We have worked for tour long years to gain
our diplomas., we have studied, and perhaps Hcrammedl' for our
exams, and now we are reaping the harvest of all the seeds of
knowledge, sown four years ago.
But there is another aspect of graduation. VVc?ve had a lot of
fun while we've been here-basketball and baseball games, hikes
and picnics, initiations and plays. We 'll miss these things, perhaps,
when we look back over our school days, and maybe we will wish
we could be back for just a day.
What are you going to do, now that you've finished high
school? Will you go on with your education or will you let it stop
now? So many high school graduates 'l'eel that when they have
finished their four years work, they know all that they need to
know. But in order to hold any high position, nowadays, a young
man or woman must have a college education. Advertisements call
for college graduates, big business needs the best educated men and
women'g and in the home, too, a college education will be of great
So think twice, graduates, about keeping on with your
ttWl1at shall I do with my life?'l This very important question
is one which every person must face at the time of his graduation.
Time was, in ancient days, when a son followed his 'tatheris trade
automatically, and a girl must marry. Now all must decide what
career they will choose. Wliat shall they take? One answer is what
are they fitted to do?
There are two important factors to be considered in determin-
ing a career: am I fitted for this work, mentally and physically,
can l follow it faithfully with my whole soul: am T prepared, natur-

ally and by training, for it? That is the first question. It seems
like a series, but each query relates to the other. Before taking up
a certain line of work one must decide whether or 11ot one has the
natural ability and proper training for it. ln order to be successful,
one must be physically and mentally able to carry on that task,
what is more important yet, one must be able to carry on whole-
heartedly, with a great love for it.
The second question follows naturally: is this career going to
benefit me in particular and the world in general? This question is
much more important than it looks on the surface. llnless your
work would actually help toward the advancement of mankind, you
would have no business in it. The profession of burglary may be
profitable to the burglar, but it certainly is not helping the rest of
These two questions should be considered very Carefully in the
ehoice of a career. After the first is thought out, try the second.
linless that can be answered by "yes," choose another line of work.
Choose that which you love and can do well, and always remember
that the greatest motto is this: "Service"
M. E. C., '25
To-morrowfyou bestow a mist of fear,
A veil that hides our future from our eyes.
You might bring forth some friends from far or near,
But still you might unloose from us their ties.
Down in the valley of suspense you dwell
Amid more splendors than To-day provides.
Of you in stories authors never tell,
Though you are faithful as the ocean's tides.
Experience, your tried and helpful friend,
'ls sometimes useless, when we quickly trod
The Path of Fate. Our life we try to spend
That we may grasp the hand of Our One God.
To-morrow must too soon be known To-clay
Requesting that we soon give up our play.

Adelphoi has now come to the close of another most successful
year. Our programs in which all members participated, have been
beneficial. as Well as enjoyable, and our little week-end stag parties
have aiforded us much pleasure all thruout the school year. The
climax of this splendid year came on June sixth at our annual ban-
quet held at the New Kenmore Hotel. Many of the alumni members
were present, and We all enjoyed a good old Adelphoi reunion.
The following candidates were initiated at the various initia-
tions :iBoWen, Cole, Goldring, L. Jordan, W. Jordan, Kingsley, Kroll,
Liebiek, Osborn, Saunders, Tracey, White and Spienburg. O,Neil

interesting meetings and progrannnes. One of the plays given this
year was HThe Flower Shopm which was presented in chapel. The

become an important, factor in Milne lligh, and that it will con-

We, the class of 1925, about to enter upon another sphere of
our lives, and realizing the many dangers facing us, propitiously
make the following bequests:
To the Junior Class, our respective places in the Senior study
hall with the suggestion that when in a playful mood, they toss
about something other than desks.
To the Sophomore Class, our surplus wisdom to aid them in
their various studies, especially in the translation of Cicero.
To the Freshmen Class, the privilege of displaying their superi-
ority over the incoming Class of Freshmen.
To the Freshman Class to be, a printed placard reminding them
that they must not loiter in the halls after one o'clock.
To Edgar Bowen, Lyman Jordan's astounding ability to occupy
and hold down the hall bench. Though Lyman had the belle from
Clarksville with him, Edgar will have his avoirdupois.
To Jerry Gritfen, IIammy's argumentative inclination to
quibble over half a poi11t.
To Charlotte Pauley, Mickey McIIale's ability tthis does not
mean that Charlotte needs this bequest-hardlyj.
To Kathryn Wilson, Uliobw Baker's aloofness.
Dudley Wade is indisputable popularity with Miss Johnson to
the masculine member of the Junior Class who is lucky enough to
win her gracious smile.
To "Al" Rosbrook, Millard Nehemiah is title as advertiser of
Hart, Schaffner and Marx.
Vera Buttonls preference for English IV last semester and the
necessary till conferences connected with it to Miss Alicia Andrews,
with the stern command that Alicia be as attentive and interested
in the said conferences as t'Buttons" has always been.

16 THE CRIMSON AND WHITE
HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1925
The greatest moment, of our lives is fast approaching. We have
been looking forward to it for four years: now that we are really
here we are appalled by the significance of the occasion antl the
fewness of our numbers. We entered ninety strong: we leave,
twenty--tive of us, if all are fortunate enough to obtain the favor of
the Board of Regents. We are now not quantity, but quality. ,.
In the fall of 1921, 90 trembling youngsters crowded into
room 302 where they were duly initiated by Miss Cushing into the
straight and narrow path belonging exclusively to freshmen. Of
course we also made the acquaintance of the other members of the
faeulty who came i11 at stated intervals to further bewilder our con-
fused brains by an array of classic information. As we left that
tirst day we wondered if we 'd ever feel at home.
But. the worst was yet to come. Was room B in that funny
building over the cafeteria? Where could the 'tbook room" be?
Room 258 must be in the basement, and thus it. went. Some of ug
were fortunate enough to find the right rooms, others walked
straight into the dens of the sophomores. liut finally we became
accustomed to the routine, and the end of that first year found us
or as many as had survived the terrors of exams, being reluctantly
handed over to the tender care of Miss Johnson.
Now that we had risen to the elevated position of sophomores,
we reorganized our class, which the year before had been organized
with Ellamae Allan as president, and elected John Shea. Evidently
it was too much for him for he soon left and We elected George
0 'Connor to succeed him. Before the year was over we heartily
wished that Caesar had never lived, but most of us succeeded in
arriving at Junior Study Hall by the next fall.
I-ly this time most of us had been initiated into some society or
other, and we were ready to begin the year on even terms with our
friends the Seniors, even if Prof. Sayles did mistake Room 304 for
freshman study hall. We elected'Frances McDonough president
and We could now with all safety take our turn at being dignified.
But what would we have done without Cleves' giggle? And Bessie
surprised us all by entering upon the scene a la Gloria Swanson.
Several: have been the victims of her charms, but we may venture to
say that we do not blame them in the least.
Our class walked off with both medals for Prize Speaking,
Sterling Ferguson and Trudy Hall being the recipients. Then we
THE CRIMSON AND Wlll'l'l'I
could almost look down on the Seniors, but we mercffully spared
them that humiliation. About June tirst a sudden revival ol' interest
in the direction of education enabled a goodly numbcr to be trans-
ferrdl to Senior Study llafll.
The beginning of our Senior year was marked with sadness as
well as joy, for during the smnmer Miss l+'rancisa Martinez, our
hlrench and Spanish critic, had died. However, while regretting our
loss, we were most happy to welcome Miss Alice Hill to the faculty.
Being now the most important class in ilfilllli' lligh School, we
took an active interest in school affairs, and llramatics Club, French
Club and thc three societies were ably carried ou under senior
Frances Mcllonough was unanimously re-elected senior presi-
dent, a11d we congratulate her on her success in that office. W'th
Helen Hamburger as president of Student Council, and Alice Bessie
Cleveland as Editor-in-Chief ot' Crimson and Whitcl, we have truly
given of our best to the school activitics. V
This history would not be complete without speaking of our
English lV teachers. HPhil" Webster and Miss Greenblath carried
us safely through Burke and midyears. To Miss Orma Harding and
Miss Margaret McGuney go thc credit for our soul-stirring sonnets
and our most excellent essays. VVe render them our hearty thanks.
We are sorry that the other classes will not have the pleasure
oi' having Miss Rice as senior critic. She has been most helpful, and
we hope that Milne will be fortunate enough to secure a critic half
as fine as Miss Rice.
lly May having secured our announcements and pictures we
began to realize that it was really almost over. Once again tlaggng
interest was restored to more than usual vigor and at last we are
ready for our diplomas.
To our faculty we extend our appreciation for the co-operatiztn
which they have given us.
We have finished a four years' course: we are leaving our Alma
Mater, and what the future may hold in store 'For us only 'Fimeff
and the Class Prophets-can tell.

A SENIOR SCENE
One bright and sunny day, a Mann named Jones cranked up his
Cleveland Carr, and started out for a ride. Just as he reached the
river Jordan, his car stopped. He had to Wade across the river in
order to reach a garage at Rosboro. Whilel the car was being tixed,
he went i11to a restaurant for something to eat. He was waited on
by a girl who looked as tho she had tried to Dyer hair. He ordered
some Hamburger steak, some Post-toasties, and a Mclntosh apple.
The meal was fine. t'Jes' Schleick mother used to makef' he mur-
mured, as he finished. But when he came to pay the bill, he felt he
had been Gipp-ed. So he left the restaurant and found his ear all
ready, and with a great Conktljin of the horn, he resumed his jour-
ney. He went to the Woodward side of the village, where he saw
sweet Williaiiis and bachelor Buttons growing under a Wliippltl tree.
In spite of the fact that his tire had been punctured by a rusty
Spike, he reached his destination on Allen street. He e11tered a
house, and passing through the Hall, he went to the Garrett where
he began to read the book of Nehemiah. While he was reading, he
fell asleep, only to be awakened by the crowing of a CBjreWster.
He then went downstairs again, and with Kirkman's soap he washed
his hands, which were covered with a CVanjLaer of dust. The
water was Colbert he used it just the same, for he was a CMcjHale
and hearty fellow. A' B. C17 725

The truth of the matter was that Wartl's vanity had been hurt.
Having been favored by girls, all girls, from the shyest in the
kindergarten class to thc reigning belle of the high school, he was a
bit inclined to be conceited and spoiled. He had been able to make
no impression upon Marcia, to be sure, none of the fellows had, but

The next week he drove over to the village where Marcia was
staying and after returning her racquet and talking for a while he
realized that he was beginning to lose his dislike for her. Somehow
she seemed lonelywshe admitted that she had had no other company
Their conversation had been interesting, had touched on many
topics but never tennis. Much to his surprise Warcl discovered
that a very real sense of humor lay beneath the lovely exterior.
Although he hinted pointedly for an invitation to come again,
she gave no Sign, so he left without the invitation but with a tennis
racquet marked M. M. riding peacefully on the back seat of the car.
The next week he returned the racquet again and was delighted
by the appreciative gleam in Marcia's eyes and the sudden trem-
bling of her mouth.
Once more Marcia ignored the hints for a hoped for invitation
and once more Ward left-with the racquet grasped firmly in one
hand in plain sight of an interested pair of gray eyes.
And still the next- week he came back, he was more than ordi-
narily interested--he was fascinated and curious. He felt there was
something behind the cool composure Hlld haughtiness, something
unthought of-something-something shy!

t The next week she took the racquet from him and took it in the
house. Again they spent an interesting afternoon and when he was
ready to go home he looked at her despairingly, "Marcia, Where's
Marcia laughed, 4'Wliy the racquet?', she asked quite simply.
t'Well, I've got to have some excuse haven't I? Particularly
when I don 't get any invitations."
tilts rather a bulky excuse, isn't it?'l she asked sweetly and
then, 'ttell me, do you like lavendar?',
Ward squinted his eyes speculatively and gazed at the slender
simplicity of the lavendar linen frock, at the glorious blue-blackness
of her hair, at her wide gray eyes and out of the very middle of
his heart he answered her, "You bet I do."
He was a bit puzzled, why should she care whether he liked
lavendar or not? Despite his atrociously open hints for an invita-
tion she did not issue one-at least not verbally but when he said
good-bye, she held out her hand in a surprisingly friendly gesture
and smiled and was gone before he could say more tha11 a short
"good-bye" but at his feet lay a small square of linen faintly sug-
gesting perfume-and it was lavendar.
As the summer went on they became wonderful friends but
neither alluded to the tennis match until one day when they were
out in her canoe.
Ward leaned forward eagerly, "Say Marcia, aren't you glad
we played tennis that day? If We hadn't, and if you hadnlt fallen,

26 THE CRIMSON AND WHl'l'E
Years later a woman stood beside an old trunk full of school
pennants and school girl relics, looking down at a racquet in her
hand, lovingly l1er slim lingers caressed the initials and traced
languidly M. M.
She stood there thoughtfully for a minute and then throwing
back her glorious black head and 'lifting her shining gray eyes she
looked at the dear head beside her. As if she had spoken his name,
the man raised his head.

The big tower clock chimed the hour of nine The guests at
Count Henry's suddenly became very quiet and expectant, all eyes
turned toward the door. Then appeared a man, handsome still
though growing old, rather tall and a little bent, but from beneath
the gray hair and shaggy brows shone bright, soulful, eyes. A
whisper shpedraround the room, and again the silence became intense.
The Master bowedlow tightened a string on his violin, nodded to
his accompanist, and began to play, first the great classics and then
the lighter favorites of the people. The applause was loud and long,
hut at last the Master held up his hand, a slim, nervous-looking
hand and motioned for silence.
HMine friends," hc said, with his calm smile, HMine friends, I
thank you for this. Now I shallplay for you one of mine own com-
positions. After that I shall improvise, perhaps one dance, perhaps
one dream, perhaps,-perhaps even one life. I cannot tell, only
mine violin can say."
Again the master began to play, a great Preludium, majestic
and finally a bit pensive. A sudden gust of wind extinguished the
candles, and a shutter blew open, letting one full ray of moonlight
fall on the Master. The violin danced and sang for the Master was
in agreat field of beautiful flowers. The sky was very blue . . .
He danced for the ecstatic joy of it . . . Clouds arose, thunder,
lightning flashes . . . IIe had to run for shelter. Snap! went a
string. A No one noticed that the accompanist wasno longer playing
but sat with bowed head over the faintly showing keys. .ii'. .
Suddenly the Master was old and weak. fi. . He sobbed, and
THE CRIMSON AND WHITE 27
kept on hurrying as if from danger as well as storm. Snap! The
face of the Master was filled with awe, but he played on: he could
not stop. Ah! at last. he had reaehed the door of the little wayside
ehapel. As he crossed the threshold leaving behind him danger and
darkness for dim light and solemn beauty, a sigh and a long sob
swept through the audience .... The Master went. down the aisle,
tottering, almost falling, and . . . Snap! The Masters counte-
nance was now filled with horror .... He rose to his knees with
an effort .... Part of the story seemed gone, silent because of
broken strings .... With a last agonizing effort the Master
crawled to the steps of the sanctuary and, crossing himself, began
to pray, sobbing .... Snap!
The Master's head droopedg there were tears on his cheeks.
Mute, awestruck, he touched the broken strings. Stepping back
toward the window into the full light he held out. his violin.
"Mine friends," he sobbed, his voice breaking, 'tMine friends,
I have played one life,-and one great mystery, Death. Mine
strength is failing me, broken strings mean-Death! But and I am
happy, for it is that I reached the sanctuary. And mine violin!
Ah, dear God," he cried in a strained, heart-rending voice, Ulf I
could only take the soul of mine violin with me. I have lived mine
life, I have loved and cared for mine violin, it is mine own child."
Ile took it in his arms, like a baby. HYes," he spoke very quietly
now, and his face was touched with the sublimity given by a pure
life. "Yes, I have lived mine life, and now, now ,... I . . .
The Master swayed slightly. His lips moved, but no one heard his
words. The wind suddenly blew the shutter closed, excluding the
moonlight. The awed and waiting group of people hastened to re-
light the candles, and in the noise and rush no one heard a splinter-
ing, crushing sound.
It was done in a moment, Zlllll the people turned to look at the
Master. There he lay in a heap on the Hoor, under him his broken
violin, while on his face was a radiant smile. Ile had told his story:
he had reached the sanctuary.

FRANCES D. MCDONOUGH,
We have had a very successful year and the programs have
been more interesting' and unusual than previously. Our vice-presi-
dent, Meredith Winnie, has been the originator of these unique
affairs. The unusually large number of new members has proved
untrue the old-time proverb, HQuality and not quantity counts" in
that they are both quality and quantity. They have cooperated
most admirably and their dance on Girl 's Day was very effective.

Another year has passed for Sigma. Somehow We feel that it
has been eventful in every respect. Bertha Post, our president of
the past year, has managed our activities to the utmost of her
ability with the able cooperation of the Sigma girls. As this goes

VVarner's Lake by bus.
As yet the elections for next year have 11ot taken place, but we

but go together a great deal. My friends Say that this is not right.
Now, Dear Peggy Page, l love him dearly and ean not give him up.
I hope that you can give me adviee. BESSIE MCI.
Hessie MCI.: Donlt you think you are a trifle young, my dear,
to be in love? I think you are in lovewith love. It is very foolish
and unwise for your friends to act so and break up your companion-
ship with this young man. There is nothing so beautiful as a pure
friendship. I should advise you to continue your friendship, and
also to make friends with other boys.

Arnold L. I have written several letters to him but he has not
answered tl1en1. D0 you think he still loves me? Shall I write and
ask him why he doesnlt reply? PEGGY M.
Peggy M.: If a young man does not value your correspondence
sufficiently to answer your letters, he is not worth your considera-
tion. By all means, my dear, do not write to him.
Dear Miss Page: For some time I have been in love with a
young man named Robert D. I think he likes me, but he is too

bashful to say so. Now, dear Peggy Page, I love this young man
better than life itself. What can I do to encourage this love.
Frances Moll.: The best- way to encourage love, my dear, is to
act natural and, above all, to be yourself. lf you do this I am sure
it will make. it easier for him to declare his love.

named Warren B. I do not love him but he forces his attentions
upon me. Please tell me how I can stop him. CRAUF NV

Grace W.: If this young man forces his attentions upon you he
is paying a tribute to your charm and doubtlessly loves you. If he
is a young man of clean habits, my dear, I should advise that you
cultivate a friendship with him, putting aside all thought of love.
Dear Miss Page: I am a girl in my teens and am very much
in love with a young man named W'ilbur Van A. Ile is going away

you will not agree with me, but wouldnlt it be correct to visit him.
Charlotte P.: It would most certainly be incorrect and very
unwise. There is a time in all our lives when We must part from
our loved ones, and on these occasions we must not act irrationally.
Then too, dear, when this young man comes back he will appreciate
you more and love you more dearly.

hold a man's love, my dear, by appeal, but must make yourself
alluring and unattainable. It is man 's nature to want what he can't
get. If he thinks he cannot get you he will want you. To hold a
man 's love never profess love for him.
42 THE CRIMSON AND VVHITE
Dear Miss Page: I am a girl eighteen years old and am in love
with a young man some years my senior named Morey W. My par-
ents object, however, to our friendship Ellld will not let us associate
with each other. This is very hard as I love him dearly. Please tell
me how I can continue this friendship u11der these terms Without
offending him. HELEN II.
Helen H.: You must remember, my dear, that your parents
have your interests at heart. Ask them to invite this young man
to your house. They may thus form a better opinion of him. If
they still object. explain the situation fully to this young man and
I am sure he will forgive any apparent discourtesy on your part.
By no means contrive to meet him unknown to your parents.
Dear Peggy Page: I am a young girl in my teens and,
prompted by the admiration of my friends, have long cherished the
dream of a musical comedy career. Until recently my parents
objected but have since given me their permission. Kindly advise
me concernin this. , ,
g ALICE missin
Alice Bessiez. From your letter, my dear, it is hard to tell
whether your ability is adapted to the stage or is appreciated only
by your friends who know you in your more serious moods. lie-
sides, the theatrical profession is one of the hardest in the world.
Today you are unknovvng tomorrow, a passing fancy at bestg and
the next. day, forgotten. Do 11ot make the mistake thousands of
other girls make and think that you can get on the stage alone.
You must have unusual talent, experience and a 4'pull" or Hdragf'
Of course if you have friends in the profession Who can place you
on the stage, and they advise you to gog it might be well to take
advantage of such an opportunity.

The course of planets always is the same.

Of mountains. ln cities the call of fame
Is always sounding, and there always are
Some men who fail and some who honors win.
But yet, oft is a star known to fall far,
Hills felled by man, whose fame can fall to sin.
I remember now that l thought you were
Faithful and true to our friendship and me.
But now I realize one is never sure!
You were as diamonds on a. sunlit sea.
