THE BOARD OF EDITORS
BUSINESS Since the Annual, like Christmas, comes but once a
OF BOWING. year, and since it is the only periodical in Morris re-
cording its events and serving as an outlet for its
literary talent, it is naturally regarded as an institution, rivaling in
interest the Regents' Examinations, only much more pleasurably. A
few weeks before its circulation animation runs highest. In the
lunch room, that motley lllecca, pupils of different clubs, thoughts
and preferences get together and form a distinctly individual circle
of their own. llany a cup of cocoa f3C.l is spilled over a palatable
platter of succulent baked beans f5c.D or some other of Rflr. lXIolbeck's
delectable concoctions, during a heated tete-21-tete as to the year book's
prospects. ln the corridors during the change of classes, on the stairs,
and around the campus, pfeans of praise and caustic comments are
delivered alike. 'fSeauanseauis story last year was a corkerl" And
the probable comeback, 'Alt was dryer than the Table of Contents."
Of course we expect to hear the same diversity of opinion this Year.
VVith this thought fermenting feverishly on their respective minds,
the Board of Editors and their confederates, with several reverent
kow-tows, lay before the well-known Hpeepull' this, their humble out-
put. VVe shall neither apologize for it nor pronounce it better than
the works of our esteemed Cbless 'emll predecessors. Besides, only
those teachers, and perhaps some pupils, who have been in this school
for a long, oh, very long time, can make a silent comparison between
this and former Annuals.
"YOUR SCHOOL This call to arms-one always needs arms when

your favorite army. Quires and reams of manu-
scripts were received responding to the Cause. In fact, if every page
of them were placed end to end, they would form a perfect line from
here to Kankakee and possibly wife fversa. Some were sublime and
others were ridiculous, but the best ones you will find here. Let us
say that in judging contributions no partiality was shown. All vari-
eties of embryo authors of all grades of classes were dealt with in
the same degree of editorial apathy.

Darwin Long Bardwell "died", as they say, on the sixth day of
last September. Some High School pupils there may be who will
not recognize the likeness of their former Superintendent, so quiet
and modest was the man, so engrossing and responsible hiswork, so
large and complex our educational world. But to all those who knew
him-I believe to those who had been merely greeted by him-Mr.
Bardwellls face and character will never be lost. For his character
and his career are our legacy and will be the legacy of his pupils'
pupils, to distant generations.
What teacher can forget the visit to his class of this teacher of
teachers, a man commanding in presence yet genial, confident in spirit
yet tolerant, strict in judgment yet not school-bound, sagacious yet
wise also, and sympathetic, of clear vision, progressive, and always
kindly-disposed? And who has not felt, as this distinguished visitor
left the room, a new stimulus and a higher resolve?
It behts us, then, to make formal mention of ourappreciation of
his swift and successful labors for the public schools and to note espe-
cially our gratitude for his life, whose beginning, tho' humble, yet,
by reason of high standards, strong convictions and hard, joyful work,
as well as of unusual graces of mind and heart, developed into goodly
promise, sound growth, widening experience, extraordinary activity
and far-reaching, if not far-famed, accomplishment.
No man can fully set forth the value of this life or bound its in-
fluence. But we know that what we do is quickly done and simply
said, while what we are is manifold, ever renewed and forever per-
petuated. This was a life won in its early years to justice, reverence,
courage, loyalty and also to friendliness, cheerfulness, hope.
To the espousal of such virtues, in some service or other for the
public weal, the life of Mr. Bardwell calls each and ever? OIR? 013 us.

History is ever largely a continuation of old conditions, with just
enough change to keep up the interestg and so it is at Morris.
Two classes have left us within the year, yet are we never without
a Senior Class, supporting the dignity and the scholarship of the
school, and continuing the tradition of senior privilege. The first
year has moved up, but the youngsters who fill their places are as
numerous as they, and resemble them closely in length of trouser
or of pigtail. The work and the play of the school sustain the ideals
of Morris. Last term in the Latin Department did we not beat the
State record, and in athletics have we not beaten Commerce?
Yet there have been changes. VVe have showed our usual mag-
nanimity toward Evander Childs, sending her Mr. Evans to raise
us up rivals in Latin and football, our beloved lVIiss Thompson from
the History Department, and llflrs. Van Santvoord, long mentor and
friend to teachers and pupils alike. VVas there ever a more relentless
exactor of reports and notes? Yet whoever saw Mrs. Van Santvoord
lose her temper oyer our mistakes and forgetfulness, or found her
too busy to answer our endless questions from her unfailing fund of
information? We greet her warmly.
Five members of the Faculty have resigned. bliss Graham had
been with us only one term, Grace Vanderbilt Keyes and Birl E.

OHN GRAHAM paced his room in despair, think-
ing of that enticing reward, fifty dollars in United
5 States treasury notes, offered for the best short
story. He knew he could easily earn the money
fi if he had an idea to work upon. He had al-
TX ready squandered two weeks in the vain beginnings
f fs of six different stories, none of which proved satis-
" factory to himself. Now, as he walked the Hoof,
a plan suddenly occurred to him: he would purchase an idea, an
adequate, workable idea! To an ignorant layman, it may seem that
ideas cannot be bought in open rnarketg but that was not the case at
Ridgedale Hall. There the boys traded in miscellaneous waresg one
could barter solutions to geometry problems for baseball tickets, or
hideous ties bought in some moment of brief extravagance, for English
themes. Graham seized the pencil and wrote in glaring capitals-
FOR AN IDEA!!
He was trusting to the resources of his companions, who possibly
had ideas but no desire to use them. He thought that the generous
bribe might tempt one of the younger students, for John had hitched
his motorcycle to a fifty dollar star, and was offering a five-dollar
satellite to a less ambitious neighbor. After tacking his notice on the
bulletin board, he went to supper.
The boys were particularly gay that night teasing one another
about the prize which had been the talk of the school for the past
fortnight. Philip Burns declared that there would be an oyster
supper if he received the prize. Many prompt protests assured Phil
that he hadn't a chance, for f'Old Hickoryy' would not consider his
productions till those chemistry exercises were complete.
Graham, growing tired of listening to the talk about money which
he already fancied in his pocket, soon left the building. He walked
on, not caring where. Before he had gone far he was overwhelmed
by what seemed to him a small army. Clammy hands covered his
mouth in order to prevent an outcry. He was blindfolded and felt
himself being carried away. Prisoner that he was, he could not escape
from the vise-like hold of his captors, but realized that he was being
carried down steps-it seemed to him, into a subterranean cell.
Presently he heard soft sounds of retreating footfalls. He was
WANTED: AN IDEA
alone. He tried to free himself from the hated bandage, but his at-
tempts were vain. Those diabolic plotters had taken the precaution
of turning out the light and robbing him of his matches. He won-
dered what his chums were doing and also what they would say
when the report of his disappearance circulated.
Suddenly he remembered his idea, or rather, the idea for which
he had advertised. He could surely write the story now if he were
released from this place of imprisonmentg but suppose he shouldn't
VVhile he was thus bemoaning his untimely end, he realized that
his captors were returning one by one, but strange to relate, their num-
bers had trebled. Some one struck a light, and a dozen hands assisted
the unhappy victim to a barrel, upon which he was forced to stand,
with outstretched arms. Then a voice reached his ears-some one
was saying, "John Graham, you are guilty of trying to abduct a pris-
oner!" Then Graham realized that his name was known to his
assailants, but there was, obviously, a mistake, for he had aided no
fugitive from justice.
The blood rushed like liquid fire through John's veins, but before
the speaker could finish, or the prisoner vindicate himself, a noise was
heard. With marvelous rapidity, the light was extinguished and
Graham felt himself again dragged rapidly away, in what direction
he could not guess. He was hurried along in silence, except for the
tramp of feet, during many weary minutes, but finally, to his intense
relief, he felt himself deserted by his assailants, and he was able at
length to get rid of the hateful blind. lN'Iuch to his surprise, he found
himself near the school. But still, he knew himself to be in possession
of an IDEA.
Rejoicing over his escape, and confident of success, bewildered
though he was, he rushed to his typewriter. In a short while he had
produced a tale of horror, dealing with evaders of the law, a faithful
friend and a midnight trial. Well satisfied with himself, he went
to bed, and in his mind's eye saw himself mounted on a glorious new
motorcycle with scarlet pennants, embroidered with fifty.
The next morning, the self-constituted prize story writer found a
legal looking document beneath his door. With trembling fingers,
he broke the seal, vividly recalling the interrupted trial of the pre-
ceding night. The imposing document read as follows: "John Gra-
ham, you are guilty in the eyes of your fellow-students of seeking to
abduct an imprisoned fifty dollar bill, and to appropriate, for your
personal advantage, the funds needed for an oyster supper. There-
PVANTED: AN IDEA
fore, we charge you to write of last nightls proceedings and for your
trouble you may keep five dollars of the prize money and reward us
with the rest."
just as he had finished reading the infamous scroll, Philip Burns
sauntered in, followed by a dozen other fellows.
"Awfully jolly of you,,' he said, "to aid us in this way. Really,
we never should have thought of it, if you had not asked us for an
idea. Cf course, John, old boy, you'll accept the five dollars for your
excellent ability to cope with the English language. By the way, you
must explain your presence in the chemistry store room last night.
Of course, we would never have mentioned your being there, but
'Old Hickory' found a handkerchief there, marked 'J. G.', and is
asking for you." Having delivered this speech, Philip and his hero-
Then John took his painfully acquired brain-child fondly in hand,
and tore it into shreds. Forty-five of these scraps were perhaps put
in his pocket and five deposited carefully in the waste paper basket.

Q- - ' - -Q ROFESSOR MAILKEVITCH murmured some-
,' , thing as he turned over in his bed for the hun-
dredth time. He had just heard the church
bell ring out the third hour of the night. It was
just twenty-four hours since he had started for
- - the fields beyond the city limits to avenge his
I-fl. ' ' .6 honor with the sword. He knew full well that
he was a rascal and that he was not treating his
students right. But that did not trouble him. He had done it for
the last thirty yearsg ever since he was appointed head examiner.
But now it was murder! He shuddered whenever the word entered
his mind. Murdfr.f And why?
The Professor had had a heated discussion with an American over
the question of ghosts. The American quoted Professor James as a
believer in spirits. Professor lVIailkevitch held that the only spirits
he knew of were those loved so much by the peasantry of his country.
A comparison of the relative authority of Professor James and Pro-
fessor lVIailkevitch led to what the Russian considered an insult. A
fiery reply and a return fire, and the argument was ended with an
invitation to a duel.
The arrangements were quickly made. The American having no
good friend in the city who could act as his second, asked that the
Professor come without one also, to which the Professor agreed. The
next morning both combatants presented themselves on the field early.
The duel did not last long. The Russian, who was the better swords-
man, was soon the victor.
He did not wish to kill his opponent. But the thing happened. At
Hrst he made little of it. He left the dead man in the field where
he had fallen, and quickly returned home. During the day he tried
to forget the scene by keeping busy all the time. But as night ap-
proached he grew restless. He visited a theatre with the hope of
buying forgetfulness for awhile. But the play ended with a duel,
which greatly irritated the Professor. He repaired immediately to
his bachelor apartments' near the college, and opened a humorous
book which he hoped would relieve his distracted mind. At first he
could even smile at the humor, but gradually the smile became painful
and faded altogether. Little red dots began to dance across the
pages. With every line he read, the dots became more numerous.
They covered the pages he was reading just as the thick grass covered
the field of honor he had trodden in the morning.
Soon the myriads of little red dancing dots became molded into
one whole surface of red-red blood gushing from the motionless body
of the fallen man. The books fell to the floor, but the blood and the
body remained on the White tablecloth, The Professor rose as if
touched by electricity, and threw out his hands. The table rolled
over with a crash. The bleeding body fell to the Hoor, and then, to
the Professor's great relief, vanished.
The Professor ran to the door and barred it, as if he feared lest
the body should re-enter there. Then he ran back to the windows,
and, seeing that they were shut, heaved a sigh of relief. A few min-
utes later he was already in bed. But try as he would, he could not
gain the sleep that he so desired.
Thus he had lain in bed until the distant sounds of the church bell
informed him he had but four more hours in which to gain some rest.
Happily for him, the much-coveted sleep came quite suddenly and
lasted for a long time. The Professor awoke at ten o'clock, and con-
sequently was late for his classes. All day long the Professor was
very irritable, and more irascible than usual. He vented all his ill
feelings on the students, who were, however, more or less accustomed
to his bursts of ire. Twenty students, at rather unusually large num-
ber, failed in an important examination that day because they had
neglected to bring the usual bribe he required.
It was the custom of Professor Mailkevitch, since he lived so near
the university, to sit every evening for an hour in the university library,
which was closed in the evening, but to which he had special access.
That evening he started out for the library more eager than ever,
hoping to lose himself among the numerous volumes and forget the
plagueing scene of the murder. He started out at a fast rate, and in
less than three minutes he was in front of the library. He walked
resolutely up the broad, marble stairs in front of the building, but
suddenly stopped as he found himself face to face with the big black
Should he enter the vast rooms of this building all alone? Would
not the darkness and the vast emptiness bring up the bloody image
again? Oh! But what was he to fear? He knew there were no
ghosts. He had always laughed at the mere mention of them. And
he was neither superstitious nor imaginative. What he had seen the
night before was only a vision of his distracted brain. But now he
was cool, he had nothing to fear. The main corridor in the front
was illuminated by a large electric lamp. He would walk in, turn
on the switches for the entire building, leaving no corner dark, and
he would have nothing to fear even from his fancy. Yes! he would
open the door and walk in. He did. And as he did so, the only
burning lamp was suddenly extinguished as if by magic, and at the
same time the door was quickly closed. The Professor thrust his
hand into his pocket for his revolver and turned quickly around to
open the door. But directly in front of him, instead of the big black
iron door, there was a whitetghost.
The Professor emitted a horrid shriek that echoed and re-echoed
through the closed corridor. He turned quickly around and ran for-
ward. He knew not where he was running. He knew only that
he was trying to escape what seemed to him a "product-of his fancy."
But he fancied he heard the white figure coming after him. Straight
through the swinging door he crashed with something close on his
heels. He dared not turn to ascertain what that something was.
Straight on he ran, straight for the door at the opposite end of the
long room, But just as he was a few yards away from it, the door
suddenly yet silently swung open and a white figure stood on the
threshold. This time the wretched man could not utter a sound.
He merely turned again to the door by which he had entered. Yes!
A white figure was there, too. Had he murdered two people? Not
to his knowledge. But this was no time for speculation. He must
Hee, whether there he one or two "creations of fancy." The only
exit left was the wide stairs on the right side of the room leading
to the next Hoor. To these he now sped with the strength he had
left, only to look at a row of white figures solemnly filing down the
The Professor fell forward at the foot of the stairs and remained
with his face to the Hoor. Then he heard a slow, measured tapping
of a number of feet, and he felt that the white figures of ghosts had
surrounded him. Presently he heard a low moaning voice that seemed
to come from the other end of the room, or perhaps from under the
chamber fioor. "Thy vile deeds shall end. We are the dead fathers
of those whom thou hast wronged. The cries of our sons have dis-
turbed our peaceful rest. We have come back together this night to
remove the cause of these disturbing cries. Thou wilt either swear
now to be henceforth kind and honest in thy dealings, and to treat
rich and poor alike, or thou wilt prepare to become one of us imme-
diately. What sayest thou ?"
"I swear! I swearli'
"To what dost thou swear ?"
"I swear to treat all alike and to be kind and honest."
"Go thou to yonder Bible and repeat thine oath."
The Professor picked himself up. The ghosts spread out to let
him pass and then followed behind. When the Professor came to
the Bible, which was lying on a special table, he put his right hand
on it and slowly repeated his oath.
Hardly had he Hnished the last word when the room was suddenly
illuminated and a shout rose up-"Three cheers for Professor lNfIailke-
vitch." The dazzled Professor turned quickly around. But the
ghosts seemed to be lying on the Hoor in little heaps. In place of the
ghosts there were a dozen jubilant students who greeted the Professor
with congratulations on his sudden determination to reform.
Another time the Professor might have grown angry, but now he
was so glad that they were not real ghosts that he pardoned the boys
and smiled cheerfully. But the Professor did not reform.

QQ . 650 NIONG the questions of Science which harass the
N6 hairless heads of our Scientists there stands out
i QOM 1.391
ffl TU one that subdues all inquisitive mankind to a state
' of meditative melancholy. It is, of course, the
question of "the missing link." Insane fanatics have taught the world
to turn to the monkey. It is not my object to disprove their belief,
but to write a treatise on the subject. I claim that "the missing link"
is the fish!
Fish society may be divided into two distinct classes, namely,
capitalistic fish and--the rest. Capitalistic fish are termed so be-
cause they dwell in the divine sweetness of sugared aqua, commonly
known as "sweet waterfl The far more numerous class, which I
term "the restf' populate the distasteful, degrading and damp atmos-
phere of seasoned aqua, unscientifically indexed as "salt water."
Our subject now having been properly introduced, let us proceed
to what is more important. A peep into the watery abode of the fish
will assure us both of their artistic temperament and of the high
degree of their social state. Singers have been developed among them.
What human voice is as clear and as resoundingly deep as that of
the sea-bass? With the profundity of music cared for by this sea-
bass, fish society provides the sweet thrilling chirps of the sea-robin.
But, are they physically as dexterous as our race? I need but men-
tion one fencer, whose weapon is deadlier, sharper, and used more
deftly than any of ours. VVho can surpass the skillful sword-fish?
But, then, are they studious, as we? Why, schools of fish are con-
stantly found, whose crowded conditions are far more serious than
ours. Are they as shrewd in business as we are? Are they as
wealthy? Shrewder, wealthier, are they! As We possess "land-
sharks" in the business world, fish society possesses sea-shark. whose
eye-teeth are sharper, yea, much sharper. As to the "John D.'s" in
fish society, I need only mention the fact that there are fish physically
"made" of gold. Have they pets? Surely, they keep cat-fish and
dog-fish, but, strange to say, the latter never bark.
Our fathomless satisfaction at these discoveries was, however, upset
by learning that fish society had its evils. I found they had a pest, a
beastly boasterg it is called a blow-fish-a name very significant in-
deed. They are also annoyed, in the pursuance of their religion, by

resemblance between our own society and that of the fish. Every
point of complexity and perplexity has been answered. All that must
now be done, is to believe. I know that, as a futurist scientist, I
am leered and jeered at. But they who laugh are those who have

RDINARILY the neighborhood about the Chester
+L Street School in lower lVIanhattan was quiet and
5- , peaceful. Of course, there were angry mothers calling
X2 children, peddlers arguing with policemen, children
X 4 f fighting and screaming,and street venders lustily call-
Q ing their wares-but on the whole the neighborhood
was really quite calm and free from disturbance.
That was before the Great VVar commenced. As the dull, sultry
days of that momentous August began, a feeling of tension seemed
to pervade the neighborhood. Mike Casey, the Irish roundsman, no
longer stopped for his noon-day refreshment, passed surreptitiously out
the back door from the German Cafe. Neighborhood friendships
were broken off, heated arguments served to wilt the collars on many
a poor Gothamite, while last but far from least the long friendship of
Herman Shafer and llfflaurice Jackson was broken!
Herman and lVIaurice had reached that mature stage of life when
their minds were busily engaged in wrestling with long division prob-
lems in Miss Jones' primary class. They were the Damon and
Pythias of that remarkable class, loving as only true friends can love,
fighting as only true friends do fight and copying each other's home-
work each morning as only true friends can copy. Only one thing
was there to mar their devotion, and that was Mary Donovan. Mary
was the admitted belle of the class. Ever since her father had bought
the dry goods "Emporiuml' and had thus broken into the local "Fo 1v"
Hundred", Herman's and lWaurice's hearts had lain at her feet.
But it was, after all, a friendly rivalry. Herman and lllaurice would
still play marbles down in the back lots while ruminating on some
grand coup which would bring them a sure sign of NIary's favor.
Then came the war. First it was only the excitement of the grown-
ups that filled the air with arguments and counter arguments, but
soon it spread down to the back lots. After a few days, some rather
numerous discolored eyes and slightly battered countenances gave evi-
dence that all the battles were not taking place along the Marne.
Herman and llflaurice no longer played marbles or discussed the
iniquities of heartless teachers. Coldly they passed each other on the
street. Defiant glances shot from Herman's eyes as he would saunter
along the street with a red, white and black flag conspicuously dis-
played on his torn and tattered shirt. Never did they come to blows
however. Their friendship was broken, but the sacred ties of former
affection kept back their fists, when they longed to do and die for their
MIXED NA TIONALITIES
'KlVIe? Oh, I'm going to the Dublin Ball. All the Irish people in
the city are going to be there, so you see I have to go, toof'
But Mary was not forgotten. The blood red form of Mars could
not altogether displace the chubby form of Cupid in their youthful
hearts. With true neutrality, she received favors from both sides and
awarded favors all around.
So it passed until events on one warm October day served to bring
matters to a crisis. Herman was slowly wending his way homeward
when a low moan attracted his attention. On the curb sat Mary,
sobbing as though her youthful heart would break. All Herman's
chilvaric instincts welled up within him, but even his soothing words
could not restore her happiness.
"Bo-hoo," she cried. K'Boo-hoo, Maurice called me an English girl
and I-I donit want to be an English girl."
With his eyes dashing with patriotism. Herman sprang up. Here,
thought he, was a compatriot in distress. Dearly would he make Mau-
rice pay for such an insult as to call a girl, above all things else, an
The afternoon session passed. The smouldering embers of the fire
steadily grew brighter and brighter. All the class waited for dis-
missal with an eagerness born of curiosity.
At last the time arrived. An admiring crowd of boys gazed with
open mouths at the signs of the approaching conflict. Half a dozen
loyal supporters struggled for the honor of holding the combatants,
For a time the battle waxed fast and fierce. Only the dull thump
of active fists or the encouraging cries of spectators broke the silence.
For many minutes the fight went on. At last the pace began to tell.
For a moment they stopped and glared at each other.
"I tell you, Mary is an English girl,'y shouted Maurice.
"She is not, she's Germanf, responded the inflamed admirer of the
"She is." "She isn't.l' So went the word back and forth.
Suddenly coming down the street was seen an apparition in red,
with a bright scarlet coat that almost dazzled the eyesg lVIary ap-
proached. She had on all her much treasured finery, and as she
stopped to look in amazement at the disheveled group, she was a
picture that thrilled many youthful hearts.
"What in the world are you boys fighting about ?', she asked.
"Where-where are you going?l' asked the breathless Herman and
lVIaurice in concert.

that this placard was entitled. "A Proclamation of the Neutrality of
the People of These United States."

Now that is capital advice, no doubt. Un-
der this head, Chaucer said, l'lVIy theme one and always shall bef'
There was a theme-I would steal Chaucer's, because he was dead
now, and woulaln't stop me.
"When you have a theme, gather material, observe details, and
take notes on them." Clliore capital advice from the teacher.l So
I observed the word "one'l, wrote it on a piece of paper, and looked
at it from different angles. It was composed of three letters, which
I rearranged in several ways, but that didn't help me. Then I
planned to haw: 'IIN make love to "2"g they would elope and be
pursued by "3" fher father,-but this would all be written "figura-
tively", and the conversation would have to be in 'lhguresu of speech,
and that sounded too much like grade eight Hexamsfl So I gave up
the idea of Chaucer's theme.
Henry Van Dyke said once Cnot to me, but in a bookj : "Choose
a really American theme, for example, the American clam." Thanks,
Henry, I will do that. Let's see, where did I see so many clams?
Oh, yes, down in lower New York Bay. Now I have my story
geographically located, while the "one" story would necessarily have
been on a piece of paper.
The teacher said there must be a main character and he must be
changed when the story is finished. In this case, there would be
nothing to do but eat him, and that would be very inconsiderate to a
Now I found myself about where I was when I began, except that
I had a themeg in fact, I had two themes, Uoneu and 'lclam", but I
had no notes, no particulars and details. And then there was the plot!
'lThe plot should be different from any one you have ever read,"
Cmore advice from the teacherj. Hahl She forgot to say saw, I
will get a plot from the "movies", So I squandered fifteen cents.
But, oh, they had on Pathe's Weeklyf, and-foh, well, you knowj.
Another idea gone.
The teacher told us something about plots. There are detective
plots, but neither "one" nor l'clam" could be detectives. Then there
are mystery plots-the kind you donlt know anything about. Yes.
I might use that for I admit I don't know much about this. But
unfortunately, the one who writes mysteries is supposed to understand
A REALLY ORIGINAL REAL SHORT STORY
them thoroughly, so another good idea gone. Then there are surprise
plots. That sounded easy, for this story had certainly been a surprise
to me. The teacher thought I was going to write a story. I would
spring a surprise plot on her by not writing one. Then she would
spring a surprise. without the plot on me, and Hflunkn meg so I de-
cided not to. This was a horrible state of things!
When at last I settled down to review what I had actually accom-
plished, behold, l had a story complete. A theme: for a theme I had
the word "nothing"-every bit as good as the word Hone", and a lot
easier to think about-at least for me. Plot: I had a "horror" plot,
for you can see that this is a horrible mess. But if that shouldn't
work, it is a "surprise" plot, for you thought you were going to read
a story, and I leave it to you if you haven't been surprised.

.Y . ROADWAY was a blaze of lights. From a million
" ' windows twinkled lights. The big clock boomed
two. Up in one of those oflices, from the windows
of which shone the lights, a lone figure sat at a
J desk, busily Eguring. The room was littered with
.LJ-tj. papers-papers on the desk, Hoor, basket, file-
papers everywhere, crumpled papers, wads, letters,
telegrams. Pencil-sharpenings covered everything.
Amidst all this he sat in his shirt-sleeves, perspiring at every pore,
his brow wrinkled, his eyes smaller and smaller, thinking and adding.
His fingers were clenched tightly upon a pencil whose point was
wearing down to nothing. Millions of Hgures danced before him.
A thousand names called out to him, words and sentences thundered
and echoed in a confused jumble in his ears. Still he added, com-
puted, calculated, as he had done for the last thirty-six hours, the
money-craze upon him, the war-stocks pouring in. Still he added,
calculated, computed, com-pu-ted--. He fell forward, no one
noted, too busy-too busy.
Baldwin Locomotive 136 ran on over miles of shining steel rising
ever higher. Always on the steel he saw the name Bethlehem. Up
200 points they rode, 250,-going higher, 300,--up, 400,-up and
up. Still he wrote, still they shouted. "Four-twenty-six," he shouted,
he bought, the train went higher. "Four-fifty," someone shouted,
up higher shone the gleaming steel, up to 267 points crawled the
panting locomotive, and still higher went the Bethlehem Steel. Ever
and ever higher they climbed,-500 Klore slowly puffed the train,
still the orders dropped in, fell in, flew in upon him, still he added,
calculated, computed. Then suddenly he looked ahead, 527 he saw!
What next? Nothing but blank space, nothing but blue clouds.
"Stop!U he shrieked, "Stop!y'--too late, too late. The train went
on beyond the control of its masters. It had reached the top. He
closed his eyes, sickened. He opened them, and there three hundred
points below were Ruin, Poverty and Death. They beckoned him.
The train heaved. Down it slid, faster, faster, faster. .... . .
A white-dressed, cool-looking nurse stood at his bed, a doctor grave
bent over him. He was speaking. "Yes, the strain was too muchf,
he heard the doctor say, and the words came to him as from far away.
"The war craze got him, he needs rest, rest, r-e-s-t." And then his
eyes closed and he slept.

Consternation reigned the while as with a wide, expansive smile,
and in a manner not uncouth, a flimsy, self-confident youth, took one
gulp of boiling cocoa. Slowly smile began to go, cold and hot by
turns he turned his face, which stiffened as though in a race, he
bended low as in disgrace, and Sought the door at such a pace that
many wonder still to-day, how and when he got away.
And that was where the fun began, as boys in all directions ran
to flee the steaming, boiling spray which seemed to come from every
way, from mouth and cup and glass and tin, and always reached your
very skin. lVIore complications had begun, there was no end to all
the fun, around the door a squirming mass of "careful" boys who'd
tried to pass, their shouts, their gasping and their kicks, classed them
among sheer lunaticsg in each one's hand a piece of steak, of apple,
candy, or of cake, one boy's wide open mouth was seen. then, then-
a little, juicy bean came dripping, followed very soon by forty more
from out a spoon. The youth's sad face was soon observedg it was
enough to have unnerved the stony Sphinx and made it laugh, as bovs
the youth began to chaff. A fight was on, and no way out. We
thought of how to check the rout, when all the fun and laughs
revived, a furious, storming man arrived, bespeckled with an egg's
contents, and not e'en one of our laments would stir him from his
fierce desire to lock us up or to inquire the reason why. I now declare
that llorris High had best take care to have its little fire alarm
when it will surely not do harm, that is, when students are upstairs
and not down in the luncheon chairs.
JACOB HOFFMAN, '18.
A GUERRE! Ce mo-t terrible fit pfilir le jeune homme.
Il n'etait pas lacheg au contraire, il voulait bien tout
sacrifier pour le pays de sa naissance. llais la guerre
maintenant! A ce temps, quand il pourrait rendre con-
f fortable la vie de sa vieille mere et des petits, dans la
my ' x A jolie ville peu importante. Et surtout, la pensee de s'1
X , chere Louise, la camarade de sa jeunesse, et -comme
5 .. il esperait-de son avenir aussi, lui fit perdre courage.
f'Mais,', se dit-il, "plus de tristesse. ma patrie a besoin
de moi, et il me faut faire mon devoirfl
Avec ces pensees il se depecha d'arriver chez lui. Sa mere et les
enfants y etaient, et l'attendaient avec la plus grande impatience. lls
avaient entendu une rumeur de la triste nouvelle, mais ils n'en etaient
pas surs. Leur peur fut realisee . A cause de leur emotion qui fut
trop profonde pour des paroles, toute la soiree passa presque san-f
Le lendemain avait ete fixe pour le depart de tous les jeunes soldars
de la ville. La veille, la petite famille s'etait reunie dans la grande
cuisine, devant le foyer. Les petits s'assirent sur les genoux du "grand
frerefl Ils l'aimaient et l'admiraient a l'adoration, et celui-ci meritair
l'amour de ces enfants innczcents, car il leur etait pere et frere. La
mere et Louise, la meilleure amie de la famille, etaient assises en face
de ce joli groupe. Tous essayerent de paraitre contents, mais quelque-
fois les femmes ne pouvaient pas retenir leurs larmes. Henri et Jean-
nette ne voyaient pas le triste cote des choses. lls s'amusaient de
questions et de reponses.
"Est-ce que tu auras un vrai uniforme et un Vrai fusil ?" demancla
"Certainement, mon petit homme. Penses-tu que l'0n tire 21 la
guerre comme toi, quand tu joues aux lndiens avec tes amis?"
Cela fit mediter le petit, et soulraiter dletre grand, avec un vrai
"Et est-ce que tu auras une jolie chambre, et de bonnes choses comme
maman les fait, quand tu nous quitteras?
"Non, Mignonne, personne ne peut tout faire comme mamanf'
.Cette reponse leur rappela le lendemain, et apres quelques moments
ils se couclierent pour pouvoir se lever de bonne heure le jour suivant.
A sept heures du matin tout fut pref. Le sac de Pierre fut em-
balle, et il fallut dire adieu. Dyabord il embrassa tendrement son
frere et sa soeur. Sa mere fut courageuse jusqula la fin. Elle ne se
plaignit point, elle se soumit. Louise fut bien triste, mais calme.

Les derniers mots qu'elle lui dit, furent, "Rappelle-toi, sois fidele gl
notre patrie avant tout. Fais ce qu'elle te demande. Adieuln
Les groupes de vieillards, de femmes, et d'enfants resterent long-
temps dans la rue, apres l'eloignement des soldats.

Le colonel parlait serieusement au regiment, demandant un volon-
taire pour entrer dans l'armee de l'ennemi comme espion. Il fallait
obtenir de l'information importante. Personne ne bougea. Enfin
un jeune homme de grande taille fit un pas en avant. "Moi, mon
colonel," dit-il. On put voir que cette reponse lui avait COflt6 une
grande lutte interieure. Mais Pierre en sortit vainqueur. Les mots
de separation de Louise l'avaient decide. Il comprit la necessite de
tout sacrifier pour la patrie, meme la vie et le bonheur.
Ce soir il alla deguise ai l'autre camp. Il reussit ai passer toutes les
sentinelles sans exciter de soupcon, et se promena parmi les soldats.
Il etait entoure d'ennemis. Pas un seul ami! Nlais son courage ne
vacilla pas un instant. ll surprit la conversation de l'attaque pro-
jetee, et elle se grava dans sa memoire. Il etait tard, et il fallait
E-tre avec son colonel en dix minutes.
Pierre repassa devant les bivouacs, mais un peu vite. Cela excita
le soupcon des soldats hostiles. Ils donnerent l'alarme "Un espion,
un espion!" Klais celui-ci n'etait plus 51 leur portee. Enrages, ils
tirerent plusieurs fois. Une balle traversa les poumnns du brave
Pierre. Il s'arreta un moment, puis il courut jusqu'a la tente de
son commandant. ll y tomba, et fut conduit a l'h6pital. Le medecin
dit que le malade ne vivrait qu'un ou deux jours. Son seul voeu fur
de voir encore une fois les siens.
Un train express avait apporte sa mere, Louise, Henri et Jeannette.
Ils furent encore reunis, mais pas pleins d'espoir-c' etait pour la
derniere fois, sans une esperance dans la vie. Le plus calme, c'etait
Pierre, et il essaya de consoler les autres. Il raconta l'histoire de son
entreprise et de sa blessure. Puis il leur montra la medaille d'or qu'il
avait gagnee pour avoir obtenu l'information precieuse. Il finit par
dire, "Et je meursg ayant fait mon devoir, je meurs pour vous, mes
meilleurs amis, et pour ma patrief'

"Sir,,' said one of those addressed, haughtily, "if
you assaulted us it would be published broadcast."
The journalist who spoke last, the cub reporter of the Evening
Planet, assumed a touch-us-if-you-dare attitude. Mr. Lustgarten,
walking up and down the room, berated him and the rest of his tribe.
It was almost time for the reporters to hand in their copy to their
editors, when Mr. Lustgarten's dignified butler approached him, and
whispered something to him. Turning toward his servant, he said
audibly, "Yes, I willf'
Thinking this was said to them, the reporters went pell mell out
of the room. Mr. Lustgarten, amazed, sat down in his chair with a
sigh of relief. Ruggles, the untiring man-servant, asked, "VVell, sir ?"

That evening in the office of the Star lay a copy of their latest
edition. At the top, across the page, ran this headline in red type:
"Lustgarten Accepts Nomination." The members of the office staff
were telling one another of the scoop they had over the Planet. The
same thing took place in the editorial rooms of all the other rivals
of the Planet. But in the office of the last named paper, City Editor
Jones paced the Hoor indignantly.
"Why didn't that fool of a cub get that? He was there with the
others," he growled.
"Serves you right for putting him on the case,', commented the
office boy, under his breath.
"Now you keep quiet! D'you hear me?" His superior threw the
waste paper basket at him.
Just then a copy boy ran in and told Jones that the cub reporter

THE JUAN WHO COULDN'T BE INTERVIEPVED
The editor sat down at his desk, and prepared to have it out with
him then and there. All the others in the room gathered about to
see the cub get "sacked," . . . The main character walked in. No
sign of fright was on his face.
"What's the meaning of this?" demanded the editor pointing to
the Staffs headline. ,
All the onlookers thought held turn pale, but the cub coolly took
his seat next to Jones. Silence reigned. There was a noticeable im-
patience on the part of the Planetfv employees. The cub's lips parted
and he whispered excitedly, "Jones, it's a lie!"
Everyone started. Jones tried to retain his professional tone, but
fairly cried, "VVell, tell us all about it. We've got to go to press in
The cub felt important. He planted his thumbs in the armpits of
his vest, and leaned backward in his chair.
"Well," he began, "We were all in lllr. Lustgarten's room-"
Jones interrupted him: "Cut out the introduction! Give us factsln
"The old man kept quiet," he said somewhat hastily, "and his man
came in and asked him something, and he said 'Yes.' Well, you see.
the fellows thought he was talking to them, and that he said he'd
accept the nomination, so they all ran out. But l stayed outside the
door, and heard 'Lusty' say that he'd let his valet shave him!"
Cheers from the audience. The cub slipped into his former bravado
position. "And, to show you how much I know about journalism, l
decided to wait until our rivals had printed their stories before l
"That's all right," said Jones, joyously, "we'll be a little late for
the final, but it won't matter much."
And so, as Jones hurriedly dictated the "beat" to his typist, the
cub boldly took a cigar out of the city editor's vest pocket and, light-
ing it, puffed blue rings of smoke into the air, while the awe-stricken
staff looked on in admiration.

ONE are those days of long ago
When life's flame burned divine,
Gone are the ones who played their part,
Whose fame is dimmed by time.
From history's scroll their splendor streams
With tales that we admire,
The deeds they Wrought, the fights they fought,
Live on and never tire.
Life's chaliced wish they held in hand
And from it's brimming bowl,
They drank their fill and quenched the thirst
That burned deep into their soul.
O, call to mind the vanished great
And see that bygone alge
Resplendent, stand before your eyes-
A scene upon a stage.
They charm like liquid harmony
With soothing, mystic strain,
That once is heard, then listened for,
With efforts all in vain.
Do homage to these mighty men
Who ruled the very sky,
See those that swayed the common clay-
Their soul will never die.

fParody on "Off in the Stilfy Night."J
FT in the Stilly Night,
Ere I submit to slumber,
My memories fly to Morris High
For I was of her number.
The smiles, the jeers
Of girlhood years,
The reprimands then spoken!
First eyes that cried,
Then girls that sighed,
Their cheerful hearts were broken!
Thus in the stilly night,
Ere I submit to slumber,
lXIy memories Hy to llorris High,
For I was of her number.
Though I remember how
VVe girls all clung together,
I know our friendship's cold
As snow in wintry weather,
I feel like one
VVho'S known by noneg
My lNIorris High deserted.
Her girls are Hed,
Their pranks are dead,
It seems all are departed.
Thus in the stilly night,
Ere slumber's chain has bound me,
My memories fly to KIorris High,
VVhe1'e sweetest joy once found me.

'js if had offered to go back to camp and get Dr. Farrel.
There was need for haste, because camp would be
breaking up next day, and by six o'clock the doctor
would be taken down to Hamilton in the motor-boat.
Yet allowing for the rough going of Twin Lynx Hill, he ought to
arrive soon after daybreak. Pretty soon Larry emerged from the pine
trees into a clear stretch of two miles, where the trail followed the
river bank. He took a drink of water, then did the next mile at a
walk. "This is just a mere change in the gaitf' he told himself, 'Tm
not weary in the least."
He ran on again with a speed that showed his splendid staying
qualities. The moon's light scarcely penetrated the cover of trees at
the base of the hill. The way was steeper and steeper and the going
harder. Darker and darker grew the woods, for the moon was being
hidden behind the hill. His rubber-soled shoes made no noise as he
Suddenly the stillness was broken by a sound of a heavy body in
the brush. Larry increased his speed, yet trying to assure himself
that there was little danger of attack. Fumbling in his pocket, he
found a match and struck it. And there, just within the circle of
light, was the shaggy bulk of a bear. The sudden Hare made the
Wheeling about, Larry started on a run up the hill. The odds
were in favor of the bear on account of the darkness, for Larry was
in danger of stumbling. Nearer and nearer came the sound of the
animal's breathing. At this rate, the chase could not last much longer.
Presently an idea came to him. Close to the path was a tree not too big
for him to climb. On gaining the lowest limb, about twenty-five feet
above the ground, he paused, the fierce clawing on the bark told him
that his pursuer was at the base of the tree, waiting with impatience
for him to fall down.
Suddenly, Larry realized that the bear had given up waiting and
was climbing the tree. To climb meant only to prolong the chaseg to
drop meant broken bones, so he wormed his way out upon the limb
and waited in dumb dread the advance of the black brute beneath
him. Soon the bear had reached the spot where the limb left the

tree. Larry could catch the gleam in his small red eyes as he settled
back with the plain intention of waiting. lylinutes sped while the
prisoner cast about in vain for a plan of escape.
At last a thought came and, taking his jackknife, he began to cut
into the upper side of the limb, between himself and the trunk. In
a little while he had made a fairly deep notch. He started toward
the end of the limb, which began to crack. Lower and lower the
limb sagged, until with a ripping, splitting sound it slowly gave way.
The next instant, Larry was sitting on the ground, thoroughly shaken.
With a glance at the bear, which had begun to descend, the boy
took to the trail. He wondered if he could reach camp in time.
"If my best efforts can get me there, l'll do it," he resolved. His
side was bothering him a little, but experience told him that he would
soon catch his second breath, yet his side kept on aching. A long,
shrill whistle greeted his ears. It was the launch. Larry fairly leaped
ahead in his anxiety. "What's the matter with you, Larry?" he
panted, "and you thought you could run! Why, you're only crawling
along. Well, if I'm too late l wonlt tell them a bear story for an
excuse." For a moment his grit left him, he lagged.
"A quittcrll' He hated the word, he hated himself for quitting.
Next moment he was forcing himself again. He could see the camp.
The launch was still at the dock. Then came three blasts from the
whistle, but he continued to run. His breath was coming in fierce
pants through his dry, parched throat. 'lLarry, you've got-to-
finish. You've got to cross the line. You-can't quit--on the last
He could see the smoke rise in puffs. "They are off, and l have
lost," he gasped despairingly. Still he ran. The next minute he was
on the dock, waving his cap and shouting. Then he sank down on
the bench. Presently the puzzled boys were swarming upon the dock.
"I would have made it, if it hadn't been for that bear," sobbed Larry.
"You!" exclaimed the doctor. "Yes, sirf' he replied, 'AlVIr. lylathews
had a bad accidentf' And then he told the story, leaving out the bear.

"That was a fine piece of running you did, Larry,', the doctor was
saying, "but what was that you were saying on the dock about a

VVhat dreary sound is this they hear?
What awful fate is this they fear?
VVhy mourn they with so sad a heart?
What Cheerless memories does this start?
Why do these maidens sadly weep,
And through the crowd drear shadows creep,
While in each heart is sorrow deep?
What means this bell to this sorrowing myriad?
To them 'tis the beginning of the period.
Another bell rings through the air,
It gaily sends away dull care.
And joyously it peals out strong,
And sprightly moves the gladdened throng,
And from the crowd there burst a shout,
And from the crowd there bursts a shout,
And in their hearts is joy throughout.
VVhat means this bell to this joyous myriad?

The past year for the hIorris High School Association has been
one of gratifying activity, and the year to come, with its new and
varied program, promises to be one of still greater interest.
At the annual reunion in January, 1915, the officers who had the
arduous and often discouraging task of organizing the new Alumni
Association retired from oflice. hlr. Jansen, Kliss Thees and hir.
Hulberg well deserved their honorary election to the Mor1'is Service
League. The splendid, faithful Hpioneerl' work theq did, made it
possible for the new oflicers to enter upon a new era of progress with
new and undampened enthusiasm.
The concert given in the Bronx Church House not long after the
reunion was one We shall not soon forget. An excellent program by
Well-known artists of high reputation was enthusiastically received by
a large, appreciative audience. The net proceeds, over two hundred
dollars, have considerably augmented our scholarship fund. A similar
concert and dance is now being planned for next April. VVC hope
you will all come.
At the present writing, the interest of the Executive Committee is
centered upon the January' 1916, reunion. All business Qexcepting,
of course, the receiving of dues and new membersj is to be eliminated,
and an entertaining program comprising a one-act sketch and musical
numbers by former students of the School is to be substituted. Two
weeks later, on Friday, January twenty-first, a business meeting
will be held in the Library and there we hope to meet all who
are interested in the school and in sympathy with the work of the
For February We are considering a monster lllorris theatre party
and supper-this to supersede the annual dance, which for several
years has not been quite satisfactory either socially or financially.
Those who are particularly fond of dancing will find their opportunity
after the April concert.
MORRIS HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATION
We call on all loyal Morris alumni, former students and teachers
to help keep the treasury full and our organization vigorously alive.
Enroll and pay the dues of fifty cents a year. Support the one or two
annual affairs we give for raising funds so that We may continue to
assist our school in very definite Ways as we have in the past, awarding
scholarships, trophies and medals, furnishing Service League pins,.and
so that we may be ready to fill other needs that will arise. We hope
that our 1916 program will accomplish all this and further promote
sociability and good fellowship among those in whom the name of
Morris High arouses feelings of gratitude, pride and loyalty.

The Morris Service League is a unique organization of students
whose watchword is service to the school. The members have been
chosen by teachers and students for public-spirited leadership, so that
personality and responsibility distinguish this group of honor students.
The purpose of the organization as set forth in the Constitution
of the League is as follows: "The aim of the llorris Service League
shall be to promote honorable conduct and the spirit of service through-
out the school." The requirements for membership are: "That a
student be regularly enrolled in the third or fourth year at the lllorris
High Schoolg that he shall have rendered valuable service to the
schoolg that he shall have a satisfactory record in scholarship and
conduct." Nomination may be made by any teacher or by any student
with the approval of a teacher. All candidates chosen by a majority
vote of the committee of teachers shall be members of the League.
The committee may remove any unworthy memberf'
The valuable service of the League has already been demonstrated.
lllembers have been delegated to help in the corridors and lunchrooms.
to take charge of the wardrobes, and to assist in the library and in
the office. Nlany are becoming proficient in the use of the typewriter
and the mimeograph, and some assist in making programs. lllembers
of the League have visited various high schools to investigate the
value of a General Organization to the school, and the League has
gone on record in favor of the General Organization.
Last Nlay- the League held its first entertainment and dance in
the girls' gymnasium, when they were the guests of the teachers. This
proved to be a most enjoyable affair.
lllonthly business meetings are held in which there is animated
discussion of ways and means to further the interests of Morris. The
members hope for increased opportunities to serve the school. They
wish to express their appreciation of the invaluable assistance rendered
to them by the Teachers' Committee, consisting of Nlr. Peabody,
Chairman, Klr. Bogart, lllr. Foster, Kliss Franke, and lllrs. Falk.

During the last year, the Alacris Debating Society has rapidly pro-
gressed in its earnest endeavors to live up to the name "Alaeris". We
chose the name "Alacris" for our society because it means the "Spirit-
ed"' which all true Alacrisites are.
The club was started by Freshmen students in February, 1914,
and has increased its membership so rapidly that two divisions had to
be formed in February, IQIS, a Junior and a Senior.
The keynote of our success lies in our achievements in the Inter-
Society Tournament. We have successfully competed against the
Illorris and Goodwin Debating Societies, and as this goes to press we
are preparing for the championship debate with the Philologian De-
The lacris divisions possess monthly papers. The Hlacris Spirit and
the Erho are composed of literature written by Alacrisites. Last
term we edited a mimeographed isfue which scored a great success
throughout the school.
Qur Society frequently presented programs in the School Assem-
blies. VVe also held a very successful spread and entertainment at
the last meeting of the previous term.
Our meetings help to bring pleasantly to a close the weekys work
in school. XVe have debates and impromptu discussions on popular
topics, also musical numbers, mock trials and sketches.
VVe owe our success in great part to the sincere and beneficial aid
of our Censor, Dr. Rosenberg. For his untiring interest in our behalf
we extend our thanks and appreciation.

The Qui Vive Literary Society was organized at the beginning of

rapidly. Its purpose is to attract the pupils of lklorris High School
to literary work: debating, writing, and readingg and also to teach
them the appreciation of what is really worth while in literature.
When the Club was first organized, twenty-five members were
enrolled. The growth since then has been surprising. Besides pre-
senting interesting programs at our own meetings, we made our first
bow to the public in the Auditorium when we gave a program consist-
ing of the life and works of the Bengalese poet, Rabindranath Tagore.

This autumn, at the reorganization meeting, it was found necessary
to separate into a Junior and Senior division. The new younger
club is doing excellent work, while the Seniors are adhering to the

The Club owes thanks for its progress to the kind and helpful co-
operation of lVIiss Schmidt, its Censor, and to the loyalty and earnest-
ness of its officers and members.

has been directed to the work of the llorris Debating Society.
Our weekly meetings are made interesting by debates on current

attribute our success to the encouragement and unfailing aid of our
Censor, llliss Andrews. VVe are sorry that bliss Andrews cannot be
with us this term. However, We are looking forward to a bright

The Dfutsrher Verein has just completed a particularly active year.
Reorganized last October with only three old members, it now has
over Hfty names on its roll.
The programs of the fall meetings were devoted chiefly to German
literature and included illustrated lectures on the Rhine, Weimar.
Berlin, and Nuremberg. Christmas was celebrated with a German
Weihnarlzfsbnunz and appropriate songs and recitations.
In the winter the members of the Verein gladly availed themselves
of the opportunity to see two German plays at the Irving place The-
atre, lllliflllfl 'von Barnhelm and Der Prinz won Hamburg, and, later
in the year, themselves undertook the presentation of a couple of
dramatic sketches. One of these, Doktor Allwissend, adapted by Miss
Schoedde, was given in the Junior Assembly.
The advent of May brought the pleasure of a Kaffee Klatsch with
spring decorations and an attractive program. The clubls annual
outing was held at Pelham Bay Park on the 12th of June, with a large
attendance of members and their friends.
The Verein takes this opportunity to express its gratitude to its
Censor, lVIiss Tilley, for her unfailing interest, which alone has
made possible this successful year.

In IQIS the Science Club reorganized, starting the tenth year ot
its existence, and added to its already large stock of tradition.
In our meetings we discuss modern scientific topics. During the
year we visit factories and plants to see the wonders of science applied
to industry. This last year we had the unusual opportunity of visit-
ing a glass Works, where we saw the process of blowing glass in actual
progress. Beside the instructive value of these excursions, the meme
hers of the Science Cluh derive a good measure of fun from them.
lVe want a large membership this school year and all who desire to
learn more of the wonders of modern science. and who wish to realize
our motto, "Science is the law of the universe," should join this happy
set of Hhiolly good fellows."

Since the publication of last year's Annual, the Glee Club has been
heard in two musical events. Un Friday evening, lllay 14th, "The
Rose llflaidenf' a cantata by Frederic H. Cowen, was sung. The
performance was so successful that a repetition was given on llay
28fll, the two concerts netting 5180 for the school fund. The choruses
were sung with the utmost precision and delicacy of shading, While
the fact that the solos were allotted to ten individuals speaks well of
the abundance of talent in the organization. The soloists were:
Klisses Selma Cahn, Jennie Colucci and Ida Gottlieb, sopranosg
Lillian Ehrlich, Jennie Kraushaar, contraltosg lllessrs. Charles Fayer
and Herman Schulman, tenors, and Klorris Bilgore- baritone.
The difficult accompaniment was beautifully played by Bliss Anna
NI. Palmer, at the organ, while to hilr. Edwin S. Tracy, conductor,
is due the thoroughness of preparation and artistic rendering of the
choruses, as well as the coaching of the soloists.

MORRIS HIGH SCHOOI, A'l'HI,IC'I'IC ASSOCIATION
There have been times when Klorris students considered the aths
letic season successful if some team won a City Championship. It
that was success in athletics, there are no terms lofty enough to
describe the splendid work of the past season. Every sport was repre-
sented by an excellent and well-balanced team. Inter-class competi-
tion was unusually keen. Excellent results were obtained in the
Freshmen athletics. Evidence was given that the aim of the athletic
instructors was more fully realized than ever before, for the boys of
the past season were more nearly all-around athletes.
Every one of us at Klorris should he proud of the athletic side of
our school. Thanks must be given to the Faculty Athletic Committee.
which helped to make the success possible and give to Morris the name
of a school with "clean" athletics.

The lllorris Ride Club was organized in 1907 for the promotion
of rifle shooting among the boys of Xlorris. Since that year the Club
has never experienced so succesfful a season as the one just past.
Through the ellorts of the members, many boys have learned the use
of firearms, and teams worthy of the name of Klorris have been
Un January 6, 7 and 8, 1915, the Club held the Tenth Annual
Invitation Shoot at the Seventy-first Regiment Armory. A large num-
ber of prizes for individual competition were contributed by manu-
facturers and prominent men. Four team matches were arranged,
the medals for these being donated bv the Club. Although several
hundred boys from all the high schools ot the city competed in both
team and individual events, most of the individual prizes and all the
team events were won by Klerris. The Uu Pont Cup, emblem of
the Rifle Club Championship of New York, was easily won bv the
Klorris Rifle Club Team.
At the Sportsman Show, held in February, the Nlorris team cap-
tured all six team events. Besides this, every member of the Club
and several other hlorris boys made their Junior Blarlcsman, the
total number far exceeding any other school.
In order to again win the VVingate Cup, given to the school having
the most marksmen and sharp-shooters, the Club offered medals to
the boys of the class making the greatest number of points in propor-
tion to the numl-.er of boys, each marksman to count two points each.
sharp-Shooter three. After a struggle covering three months, Class 7-6
was victorious by a small margin.
Another feature of the year was the Annual Armory Handicap
Shoot, open fnlv to members of the hlorris Rifle Club. It was held
in hlay at the range of the Second Field Artillery and covered a
'A MORRIS RIFLE CLUB
period of two days. Gold medals were given for first and high actual
score and a silver medal for second. The results were:
High Actual-Ralph Starke.
Never in the history of the Morris Rifle Club have so many innova-
tions been attempted in one year nor has the Club ever been more
successful. The Invitation Shoot and the Inter-Class Competition
were entirely new to the present members of the Club. The Rifle
Club Shoot was never carried on on such a large scale before. Yet
all three of these were great successes.
To lllr. Smith and lllr. Shannahan, our Coach and Censor, we
owe a great deal for their help in accomplishing such fine results and
we extend our gratitude and thanks to them.
The Morris Rifle Team made its debut this season by capturing the
Du Pont Prize at the Peekskill Ranges. This represents the out-
door championship of New York State. The prize is awarded the
five-man team shooting the highest score at a distance of 200 and 300
yards. The Morris five won out with a record-breaking score of 215
out of a possible 250, from a field of sixteen competing teams. Captain
Condon was high man, with a score of 45 out of 50. C. Otis and
J. Jacobs placed in the individual match, taking fourth and fifth
places, respectively, thereby winning the medals given by Brig.-Gen.
lNIcClosky. Great credit for this victory is due our Coach, lllr. Smith,
and our Captain, L. Condon, for putting the team in shape for the

THE RIFLE TEAM
Each year the lylorris Rifle Teams win trophies and championships.
and keep up the lyiorris standardg but the team of 1914.-15 made such
a great record that there is no comparison with any other squad which
has represented the school. In the past the Morris team has won a
majority of the prizes put up for competition. However, during the
past year, out of fifteen trophies competed for in this city, lXIorris
won fourteen, and yielded the other by a margin of one point!
These, added to the nine permanent trophies already won, make
lNIorris the holder of twenty-three of the twenty-four shooting trophies
of New York City.
The team acquired the first trophy at Peekskill, October 24, in the
Outdoor Tournament. After an exciting match, lVIorris won the
Du Pont Trophy with 205, beating Curtis by eight points, and break-
ing the old record of IQ2. In the Individual lwarksman lVIatch,
Starke took second place, with 87 out of IOO. Daly was fifth and
Reppert eighth. Seven llorris boys qualified as junior llarksmen.
Meanwhile the Sub-Target Tournament was progressing. Both
the first and second teams won the INTanhattan-Bronx-Richmond
division without a defeat. They then shot against Erasmus Hall in
THE RIFLE TEA114
a series for the City Championship. The first team lost both matches,
by one point, 268-267 and 259-258 were the scores. By this,
Erasmus won the VVhitney Trophy. The second team, however,
won both matches, by 166-164 and 170-165, thus winning the Sub-
Target Banner. In the last match they set a new second team record.
having previously tied the old one of 169. The teams' record for the
sub-target season, including practice matches, was: First team, won
1 1, lost 3g second team, won IO, tied 1, lost 1.
Armory practice was begun in Thanksgiving week. The team was
soon in great form, and at the lX'Iorris Invitation Shoot, January 7,
8, 9, 1915, lVIorris won all of the five team matches and 20 of the 45
individual prizes. New records were made in each match. The VVorld
Trophy became ours with 291, The Du Pont Cup was won for the
first time, with 338. The N. R. A. Cup was taken, with 8893 the
Kieth Cup, by Levine and Reppert, with 127, and the Defendam
Second Team Trophy, with 260. In each match, Curtis was a close
second, except in the Kieth match, in which llorris teams finished
second and third. Class A was won by Condon, with 199 x 210,
and Levine was second with 195. Reppert took fourth, Daly sixth,
and Arnold ninth. Daly, on one of his strings, made a record for 75
feet of 67 x 70. Class B, for second-teams members, was won by
Starke, with 184, with the other four IVIorris second-team boys next.
In Class C, for non-team members, the lIorris tyros won ten of the
The next tournament was the Sportsman's Show, held at the Grand
Central Palace, February 20-28. In these matches also, IN'Iorris made
a clean sweep of the trophies, setting new standards in each match.
'The Standard Bearer was won with 1520 x 1600. In this match,
Ex-Captain Reppert proved that he is the greatest schoolboy rifle-shot
in the country, when he made the marvelous score of 199 x 200,
hitting the half-inch bullseye IQ out of 20 times at 50 feet, under
the most trying conditions of excitement and competition.
Another mark was boosted skyward in the Peters lIatch, when
the Bronx gunners shot 968 x 1000. The VVinchester Cup came next,
Morris leading with 1146 x I200. The Du Pont lNIatch, for teams
of four, was won by lVIorris with 266 x 280. The second team almost
got them with 264, and Curtis was third. This score put the old
record of 253 into the discard. Arnold. of the second team, shot
69 x 70, a new record for the match. The New York State Cup,
for the New York Championship, was next won with 1876 x 2000,
the ten members of the team winning their HlVI"s. This made the
THE RIFLE TEAM
fifth record to go, the old mark being 1821. In all the matches but
the Du Pont, Curtis was a close second, and the lVIorris second team
third. Roland Reppert led the team with an average of 195. He
also won the U. M. C. Challenge Cup for the second time, with
2260 X 2300, with the title of City Champion. Condon and Daly
of lVIorris were close up.
In the individual matches, Reppert won the Saks watch, Starke
the Schoverling shotgun, Labriola the Macy rifle, I. Condon the
Davega knife, and Daly the camping kit. Second place was obtained
lv' Spear in the Taylor match, L. Condon in the Remington, and
Geisler in the Macy. From the Invitation Shoot, the lVIorris team
went home loaded down with cups, medals and prizes.
In competition with schools from all over the United States, we
were not so successful. In the N. R. A. Tournament, although the
team was far above the average of former years, we tied for third
place with Stoneham flYIass.D H. S., with six matches won and three
lost. The series was won by Iowa City H. S., with Deering H. S.
CPortland, lXIe.J second. However, when competing with schools
having military drill and daily armory practice, we are at a disadvan-
In the Astor Match, for the U. S. Championship, which Morris
won in 1910, we were fourth, although we broke our own record of
951 with 965. Stoneham won with 989, Iowa City was second with
972, Roswell QNew lVIexicoD NI. A. was third with 970, and we
were fourth with 965.
The last competition of the year was for the VVingate Cup. For
the sixth consecutive year, IVIorris triumphed, with 75 Marksmen
and 37 Sharpshooters, or 261 points. Erasmus, with 139 points, was
Thus with a victory the season closed, and most of the IQI4-I5
team will represent Nlorris no more. But with such a splendid second
team to succeed them, we must predict continued success. The boys
who made the ten-man team and won their "Mus were: Edward
Geisler CCaptainD, Robert D. Spear CManagerD, Roland Reppert,
Ralph Starke, Joseph Levine, John Condon, Lawrence Condon, Victor
Daly, Frank Arnold, and Anton Labriola.
The 1915-16 team will be led by Lawrence Condon, Captain, and
Alfred Richardson, lWanager. Frank Arnold was elected Captain,
but did not return to school in September. Robert Johnston was
selected Assistant lVIanager. To the officials of the Second Battery
we are grateful for the use of their range, and we must also thank
Mr. Donald Smith, who gave up much of his time throughout the
year to act as our Coach.
THE RIFLE TEAJI
INTER-CLASS RIFLE TOURNAMENT
In an endeavor to keep the VVingate Trophy at BIorris, the Rifle
Club planned an inter-class tournament.
The plan was this: Those hoys qualifying as Sharpshooters would
gain three points each, while those qualifying as Nlarksmen would
gain two points each. The total numher of points for each class,
divided hy the number of hoys in the class, gave the average.
There was keen competition among the classes and the outcome was
not decided until Friday, April 30, IQI5.
The winners of this tournament were the boys of Class 7-3. There
were ten boys in the class, four Sharpshooters and six lIarksmen.
The former were Heidenreich, B. Rosenzweig, I. Rosenzweig, and
Satirg the 1'Iarksmen were Dillon, Horowitz. lXIacCahe, lwartin,

THE FRESHMAN BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
The Freshman Basketball Tournament of 1914, under the direction
of lllr. Elkan, was very successfully played. Great interest was taken
in the tournament by both teachers and pupils. It was necessary to
play about forty games to decide the championship. The last game
of the schedule filled the entire gymnasium and was finally decided in
favor of Class 2-IO, by a score of I7 to 8. Grabslcy and Ginsberg
of the winning team were at their best in both offence and defence.
The school medal was awarded to the following team:
Ginsberg, L. F.g Grabsky, C.g Rabinowitz, R. F.g Thousendfriend.
L. G4 Finsberg, R. G. Substitutes, VVeXler and Slotnikoff.
On April 24, IQIS, at lXlcCombs Dam Park. the first games of the
preliminary baseball tournament were played. The understanding in
the preliminary playing was that every team losing two games be
eliminated. Those teams winning one game and losing one should
play again, the loser in each of these series being dropped from the
final contest. By this process, there were seven teams left for the
inter-class tournament, which began lylay 25.
The final round proved to he the most interesting Set of games ever
played by class teams. Not only the players themselves, but their class-
mates showed splendid class spirit. Every team showed its sportsman-
ship and accepted without argument the decisions of Hutchins.
The teams representing Classes 4-1 and 4-5 were left in the field
to play for the championship of the school. After a hard struggle for
supremacy. Class 4-1 won the gold fobs given by the Athletic Asso-

a little pep," will live with the participants forever.

No more successful season than that of 1915 has been enjoyed by
a Bforris High School baseball team since the days of the winning
team of 1909. That year lworris Won the championship. The team
of 1915 has again won this honor.
The call for candidates showed that good material was at hand.
It remained for our Coach, lVIr. Gaylor, to shape this material into
a championship team. His success with the team is indicated by its
standing. It started the 1915 season in good form, defeating lVIanual,
3-O. This victory evidently inspired the boys, for they continued to
win all the preliminary games but one. which was lost to Yonkers.
The start in the P. S. A. L. games brought much surprise and great
joy to Nlorris followers. VVhen night fell on the 14th of bday. we
had Eyander Childs' scalp hanging at our belt, score 7-I. This

the boys, amongst whom 'iDutch', Nleany glitters like a star. VVith-
out his remarkable pitching, it is certain we would not have headed
the list. On the receiving end of the battery was 'lRed" VVincor.
whose brilliant catching helped Nleany not a little. VVeinheimer,s

The Football Team of 1915 started the season with but one regular from
last year's team and three substitutes. Although this was a serious drawback,
the determination to succeed soon became manifest. The attendance at prac-
tice, the spirit and tl1e efiort displayed outshone an apparent ignorance of
details. When the first call for candidates was issued, about forty-five stu-
dents appeared at Crotona Field. This was very encouraging to our Coach,
Mr. Emmons. After the iirst enthusiasm had cooled and hard work was in
order, some of the players failed to appear for practice. This was either due
to parental objection or ineligibility. An average attendance of thirty players
was maintained for the rest of the season. Their spirit in practice was
something that Morris should be proud of. It surpassed that of all other
previous football teamsg it was retained in spite of our early defeats. The
resolve to win kept them in a lighting spirit and later was the cause of Stuy-
vesant's downfall and that of Commerce, too. The latter team was defeated
for the first time in the history of our school.
A fighting spirit and enthusiasm stimulate effort. This was apparent in
a4ll the games. VVe started the season with a defeat by Flushing High School'
by the score of 27-O. Our next game was with New Rochelle, who de-
feated us by the score of I2-6. At the next appearance we succumbed to
Yonkers, 1313. Against the New York University second team, our boys
played well, but again lost by the close score of 6-0.
After this tiresome tale of defeats, we may at least relate of victory. We
defeated Stuyvesant High School by the score of 18-6. Captain VVein-
heimer's splendid playing was also characteristic of the entire team. To win
the Commerce game has been the ambition of all Morris football teams.
This was accomplished this year by the score of 7-0. This 1915 team will
forever live in football annals of Morris High School as the team that de-
feated the High School of Commerce for the first time. The name of Captain
Weinheimer will also live and be honored as the player who made the lone
touchdown and then sent the ball flying squarely between the posts. We next
journeyed to Peeksskill Military Academy and lost by the score of 7-0.
Monday following the Peekskill game, Jacob Taub was seriously injured
while practicing at Crotona Field. Out of respect to him, the games with
De VVitt Clinton High School and East Orange High School were cancelled.
This is the most unfortunate accident that ever occurred at Morris.
Those who were on the first team were as follows: Krassner, l. e.g Finley
and Basco, l. t.g Rabinowitz, l. g.g Hicks, Barbanes, centerg Kamioner, r. g.g

'l' HIS TRACK TEAM
e hlaroon and VVhite had
Very seldom has a track team wearing th
a more brilliant success than the one which has just completed the
1914-I5 season. It proved to he the strongest in the competition and
won with ease many of the coveted trophies. The team consisted of
forty men, a larger number than ever before, and of these, twelve
won the insignia of the school and thirteen the ll. 'lf T.
ln the P. S. A. L. Title Kleet the track team took second place,
Stuyvesant winning by three points. The lille Championship Relay
and the llile Relay teams each took second place. The 120-yilfd
Novice team secured third place.
ln the St. Johns Hamilton, Erasmus, Jersey Dual lVIeet and the
Relay Carnival, permanent trophies were won. At the latter meet,
which was held in Philadelphia, llorris took third place in the United
States Nlile Heavyweight Championship Run.
Of nineteen races, the llile Relay team Won sixteen, came in second
in two, and thi1'd in one. ln the Championship runs this team estab-

Cllhe Svrurntvrnth Annual Zlnhnnr 913221
The most successful Indoor Meet that the Nlorris High School
ever had was the Seventeenth Annual set of games, which were held
at the new Twenty-second Regiment Armory 168th St. and Broad-
way. Even Jupiter, whose chief task used to be to bring down a
storm on the day of the meet, broke the precedent which he had set,
and helped make the meet a success.
Balestier again produced the feature performance of the evening
when he won the 600-yard Interscholastic Run, and beat out Finley
of Morris and Reilly of Manual. "Hal" Finley was the only man
who took two places in the interscholastic events, i. e., second in the
300 and 600-Yard Runs.
The Mile Run, closed to the Morris High School, had many in-
teresting features. Spear, who started from scratch, worked his way
through the long field of competitors, but failed to beat out Dwyer
in a fast sprint in the last lap. Just as the men were nearing a point
about 30 yards from the finish, someone looking like a black streak
ran through the long line of competitors. E. Bicak, running at the
clip of about 220, worked his way through and beat Spear out for
Much credit is due to the active Indoor Meet Committee, con-
sisting of Schulman QChairmanj, Balestier, lllanly, Graeb, I. Rosenz-

THE FRESHMAN MEET
The Second Annual Freshman hleet of the lworris High School
was without doubt a great success. Keen competition was shown in
all events and the future athletes of our School could readily be picked
out. The Point Trophy was won by the sturdy athletes of Class 2-2.
This class totaled I7 points while its nearest rival, Class I-20, only
succeeded in totalling I5 points. The star performer appeared in
Kamensky of Class I-20. He took first place in the 70-yard dash-

When the soccer season began, Manager Grossman had but one
man from last season's team and that one was a substitute. Un-
daunted, he coached and drilled until he produced a team that could
hold its own on any soccer field.
The season opened with Townsend Harris, neither team scoring.
We tied, also, Erasmus and Evander Childs, both scores I-I. Next
came the Stuyvesant game at Lenox Oval, resulting in a Morris vic-
tory, 1-0. The first set-back that we received was inflicted by the
Clinton team, I-O. The big game of the season was with Com-
merce, our old rivals, at the Polo Grounds, and the result was a
victory for Morris, the first in many years. Score, 2-O. The
feature of this game was a goal in 45 seconds by Captain Schoen.
Next we defeated Boys', 3-I. The last two games were Morris
defeats, Curtis 5-O, Manual 4-O.
Many thanks are extended to Mr. Strauss for his services for the

When the tennis season of 1915 began, lVIorris had prospects of
forming a championship team. The following veterans still re-
mained: Cohen, singles' champion 1913, and member of the cham-
pionship team of IQIIQ Nlanager Starkman, singles' champion 1914.
and member of the 1913 and 1914 teams, Captain Fertig, member
of the 1913 and IQI4 teams.
We first engaged Erasmus Cchamoions of Brooklvnj in a practice
match. The score at the end of play stood Morris 3, Erasmus 1.
the fifth match being called off on account of darkness, the score
standing: Morris, one setg Erasmus, 1 set. We next played Manual
Training and were leading 2-0 when rain prevented the continua-
tion of the match. Our next victims were the N. Y. U. Freshmen.
who lost by the score of 3-2. The Fordham Prep. team next tried
to stop the onslaught of our men, but they were defeated by the score
4-I. The N. Y. U .Freshmen, seeking revenge, challenged to a
return contest, and we immediately accepted. This time they were
beaten 4-I. The feature of this match was the brilliant playing of
our doubles combination, Starkman and Cohen. Opposed to this pair
was a member of the crack N. Y. U. Varsity. After a hard struggle,
the Morris pair won the match.
The first Saturday in May, the Townsend Harris racquet wielders
were beaten in the first P. S. A. L. match, by the score of 4--I.
The following week, We played Curtis, and lost, 3--2. However, the
fact must he noted that, through inexcusable lack of forethought,
our boys had to walk four and a half miles to the tennis courts
chosen by the Curtis players.
We next played Commerce and Stuyvesant, both schools losing by
the score of 5-O. Clinton forfeited to us, 5-0, failing to appear
for our scheduled match. Out of eleven matches played, we lost
only one, which is a record for a lworris team.
The feature of the season's work was the steady, brilliant team-
play of Starkman and Cohen, who. without a doubt, formed the
best doubles team in the League. Captain Fertig played steady tennis,
losing only one practice match. Comment must also be made on
Condonis steady winning.
In the P. S. A. L. Individual Championship Tournament, Morris
made the best showing of any of the seventeen schools entered.
Fertig reached the third round, Starkman reached the semi-final
round, and Cohen Won the championship, which brought home a beau-
tiful silver cup besides the Title.
We wish to thank Mr. Skeele for his untiring interest and support
of the team.
The members of the team were: Lawrence Fertig, Captain,
Harold Starkman, lVIanagerg Harold Cohen, John Condon, Joseph
Sherry and Thomas Capek. As none of these men will remain next
season, no Captain was elected. Alex. Fisher was elected Manager
for the 1916 season.
In the School contests lVIax Rubin of 8-4 and ,Ieanne Scanlon of 6-3
proved to be the Morris High School champions.

About three years ago the boys of the graduating class of that time,
desiring to become better acquainted with each other and with the
boys of the lower classes, organized the Turn Verein Unter Uus,
under the guidance of lVIr. Scheib. The purpose of the organization
is to foster companionship among the boys of the three upper grades
of the lVIorris High School Annex, and to provide healthy and pleasant
amusement for them. Thus far the Club has succeeded in carrying
out its purpose, for every Friday afternoon finds a group of boys in
the gymnasium of the Annex engaged in vigorous and health-bringing
The Club Wishes to take this opportunity to give sincere thanks to
Mr. Scheib for the interest he has always taken in its affairs and for
his great help in making the afternoons pleasant and interesting.
Although the Club has enrolled nearly all the boys of the Senior
grades, it still has room for a few more, and extends a hearty invita-
tion to all who care to take part in its activities.

From the moment it becomes known that llorris is preparing an-
other issue of its Annual, such great firms as 'liii3fany's, Steinxvzlys
Underwood's and many more, vie with each other, bidding fabulous
sums for the privilege of advertising in our Annual. This is one of
the innumerable reasons why our A. A. is so rich. But then a great
difficulty arises. How can the Annual accept advertisements from
almost every important establishment in New York City? The solu-
tion is simple indeed. All iirms whose capital and surplus, the Stall
finds, do not reach the million-dollar mark, are registered as worth-
less. The rest is easy: a mere matter of securing the copy and plates,
and least difiicult of all, collecting the money after the Annual appears.
VVhen one of these hrms, rejected by us, insists upon its right to
advertise, you have the scene pictured below. You will notice, how-
ever, gentle reader, that by a unanimous vote of the Staff, the adver-
tisement is rejected. From left to right, these haughty ones are:
VVandres, Kliller. Peters, Rosenzweig, Sheftel and Kallman.
