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. 1 EDITORIAL "YOUR SCHOOL This call to arms-one always needs arms when NEEDS YOU." writing-was responded to with the efficiency of 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.

We shall not follow this patriarchal precedent, because we feel it is not enoughg it is too petty a tribute. Cur enthusiasm is so effervescent that it can only be blurbed into rhyme, and we do it also that their memory shall not be ephemeral.

And let us add this fervent postscript: "Long live the Annual, and long may the pupils buy!" --M. L. 3 Barwin Kung Earhmrll 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. 5 Qlnlnnrl llnaeph A. Gnnlhrn Colonel Goulden was a genial gentleman, a loyal friend and an untiring public servant. As a private citizen and as a public ofhcial he was ever a potent friend of the schools. He greatly endeared himself to Morris teachers and pupilsg he shared the joy of our victories, both scholastic and athleticg he fre- quently graced our platform and cheered us with his kindly presence and he gave us substantial tokens of his affection. VVe cherish his memory. -F. C. W. 6 Uhr Hear at illllnrrin 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. Schultz, since 19113 while Mary Bourne Morse and Bessie Carleton were of the old regime. VVe miss them in a hundred ways, in class room, club and social life, and are only consoled for our loss by their gain. Mary Normile lVlacBain has left us the hope that she may return, and had we her own gift of expression we could more adequately word our gladness and our congratulations on her present enjoyment of woman's rights. But the faculty, like the student body, is constantly replenished, and we have already welcomed twelve members who were appointed in February, as well as those who so nobly came to our rescue in Sep- tember. On the physical side, Nlorris has finally acknowledged the principle that two bodies cannot occupy the same space at the same time, and has split into two sessions. They are not so widely separated that there is danger lest either forget the other. It must not be thought. however, that, like the amcrba, We can continue the process indefinite- ly. lncidentally, the Faculty have acquired a new Work and lunch room all their own. fApplause from the Facultyl Other changes, and the doings and hopes of all the days, are they not written on the hearts of the loyal members of Morris? -H. MACG. C. 7 manivh z An 3lhra 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- FIVE DOLLARS FOR AN IDEA!! JOHN GRAHAM. 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 8 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 get out! 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- 9 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- worshippers departed. 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.

IXIAX LIEF, '16 ll Emu Nights fBa.fed on Faczij 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 Y-,....,, 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. 12 TWO NIGHTS 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 iron door. 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 13 TWO NIGHTS 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 corridor. 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' 14 TIVO NIGHTS "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.

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 a devil-fish. So, no matter how or where we turn, we are confronted with 18 A THE .MISSING LINK 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 201: yet attained the full stage 0 fdevelopment, and are still "poor s es. JULIUS SHEFTEL, ,I7.

MARIE SYRKIN, '16 r is si 20 illllixrh Natinnalitira 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 country's rights. 21 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 English girl! 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, coats. 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 Kaiser. "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. 22 JIIXED .YA TIONALI TIES f'Me? Oh, l'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, too." The next day two rather disconsolate boys were obserx ed reading a notice in a local post-office. Upon closer examination it was found that this placard was entitled. "A Proclamation of the Neutrality of the People of These United States."

Now that is capital advice, no doubt.

"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 main character. 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 30 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. RALPH KERR, 5-1.

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.

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.

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 conversation. 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 le garcon. "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 fusil. "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. vi 34 L 'JDIE U Les derniers mots qu'elle lui dit, furent, "Rappelle-toi, sois fidele gl notre patrie avant tout. Fais ce qu'elle te demande.

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.

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.

If you don t 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 had arrived. "Call him right in herein 38 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 an hour." 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 came here." "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.

REGINA ROSNER, '16 WN 4 Q3 e li f' 45 when Earrg Kun 51 T was just growing dark, when Larry left the fellows at Little Moose Falls, where they had decided to , X camp. He could not see how Mr. lVIattheWs had S inanaggd fall is such. a way as ftolreceive a fraclgured V eg. ea izmg t e seriousness o t e situation, arry '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 hurried along. 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 brute hesitate. 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 VBUSCH 46 WHEN LARR Y RAN 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 lap!" 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. 919 ik- ik ik "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 bear ?,' Larry hesitated a moment, tempted to tellg but he kept his resolu- tion. "That was only a bear story!" he exclaimed. ELSA L.

MORRIS HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATION 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 Association. 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. 64 1 1 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. 67 Stella Levinsohn MORRIS SERVICE LEAGUE OFFICERS, 1915-16 Preszdenz ..... .....................

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- bating Society. 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.

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. Cn June fourth we had a lllark Twain Day, to which outsiders were invited. 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 same high aims as those of last term. 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.

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.

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. On lllay 29th. the Club sang at the Joseph Rodman Drake cele- bration, held in the Auditorium, at which time was presented the setting to this poets "American Flagf' especially: composed by hir.

III 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. I'll'll.1.Ill1lt'.

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 formed. 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 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 yo '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: First-Roland Reppert. Second-Anton Labriola. 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 match. The team consisted of: Lawrence Condon CCapt.D, Julius Jacobs, Courtlandt Otis, Henry Chapin, and Alfred Richardson QMgr.D. OFFICERS-RIFLE CLUB Feb.-June. , Sept.-Jan.

E DWARD MAHER 97 1 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 4 98 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 fifteen prizes. 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 99 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- tage. 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 second. 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. 100 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, Rescorl, and Reis, all of whom won hronze fohs, the prizes of the tournament. Second to Class 7-3 was Class 4-3. represented hy fourteen hoys: Abbot, Fishgrund, Hintlley, Rutz. llleher, CKIarksmenlg Brandt, Chess, Dwyer, Alones, Kerr, Levy. lXIcGrath, Pisocreta, and Sancleroff, CSharpshootersj. em? 101 5 . t .

BASKETBALL 'TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS, Freshman Division 102 Bi gui' 4' 44 Kb ihliii I l lilil 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. BASEBALL TOURNAMENT 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- ciation. lVIuch thanks is due Mr. Schultz, whose saying, "Come on, boys, a little pep," will live with the participants forever. 103 QQ PCN Cl .4-.::'?..4.i ASV. QS 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 victory over our sister high school brought with it the championshin ofthe Bronx. Clinton, Commerce. Bayonne and Stuyvesant all feil Victims to the masterly playing. Such a success draws attention to 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 and Lapinskxds work at the bat broke up many a game. Hutchings at second, Krassner at short, Tinsley at third. and llogeleskv in left held, were prominent in the success.

BASEBALL TEAM 105 SQUAD FOOTBALL W l I- t- -0? lllll T ' A . J, ' x 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 Carney, r. t.g Ballestier, r. e.g Rosenberger, q. b.g Winters, Lembeck, l. h. b.g NVeinheimer fCapt.l, r. h. b.g Fogarty, f. b. 107 I I ft YM' 4 rr c 1 ' -G? as f , f .

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- lished a new record of 3.3 min., bettering the old record by 1 4-5 seconds. - ' ' ' l f r famous track team is Ballestier. Perhaps the most notab e o ou He holds the P. S. A. L. indoor and outdoor half-mile record, and of twelve races he won ten, took second in one and third in another. He ' " ' ' k . for the was chosen captain, and Lefkowltz manager, of the trac team coming season. 108 THE TRACK TEAM As for the P. S. A. L. Champions, Spear, Meany, Smith, Bonaparte and Ballestier Won that title for their respective events. Robert Spear, Mile Run fnovicej. Meany, Shot-put. Bonaparte, 220-Yard Dash. Smith, 220-Yard Dash Cnovicel. Ballestier, Half-lVIile Run. Much of the success of the Track Team was due to lWr. Straus, our Coach, and to Herman Schulman, Captain, and Elliot Ballestiery Manager. TRACK TEAM 109 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 second place. Much credit is due to the active Indoor Meet Committee, con- sisting of Schulman QChairmanj, Balestier, lllanly, Graeb, I. Rosenz- weig, Daly, Spear, Wincor Fleck, Bronfman, lWcCahe, Hundt, NI.

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- 100-lbs. class, broad jump and high jump. Although a small fellow, he succeeded in making 4 ft. 8 in. in the high jump and I6 ft. in the broad jump.

SOCCER TEAM 112 Surfer f 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 team. The team: T. Schoen, Captain L. Liss, r. h. b. B. Rosenzweig, goal Pacholke, center C. Marcus, r. f. ,l. Lukashok, i. r. H.

Efrnnia 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 113 TENNIS 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. 114 ' HT HE 9 't r y EIL-.lT!l .5fl' t x yy . , 'I f X 6, in iszg J it Cl is! an x la fri, N jg J My The Seniors have two games of baseball in progress on lwondays. while their friends play hockey.

HOCKEY Two teams of the Senior girls meet every llonday at Van Court- landt Park, under Bliss l3utler's chaperonage. The Autumn days have heen ideal for this sport. The hockey field is the hnest of its kind, and the green held, surrounded by hills that are a blaze of yel- lows and criinsons, is a lovely place for the sport. These girls are coached in the hockey by the llisses Florence Sachs and Alice Nash, our graduates, and now graduates of Savageys Gym- nasium. The Juniors play at Central Park on Thursday mornings, and on Friday mornings at Van Courtlandt. Kliss Hazen chaperons them. and flliss Beatrice Levy coaches them. 115 A4 lv! 4+ 1.

These teams were forced to discontinue their Work after February, as the gymna- sium was not available for practice. The teams of the lXIott Avenue Annex met from September, IQI4, to June, IQI-S. They ended this season with a round-robin seriesg the sixth term team won the championship. This term the basl-:etball teams from the llain Building and from the Blott Avenue Annex will meet at llfott Avenue for practice. Kliss Pulvermacher expects some very interesting games this year, as more than seventy girls have joined the club, and more than fifty of these were members last year. THE BIOTT AVENUE ANNEX SVVIMHING CLUB. The lfott Avenue Annex Swimming Club, has been in existence for several terms. bliss 'Pulvermacher was delighted to note that more girls joined than ever before.

This society affords endless pleasure to its members, and it is no wonder that more than fifty girls have joined this class in order to take advantage of the opportunity to acquire the art of fancy dancing. Last December an exhibition was given by this Club, as a demon- stration of the term's work in folk danees, jigs, and aesthetic dances. For the success of this entertainment and for the enjoyment afforded at last term's weekly meeting, all credit is due to our teacher, Miss Butler.

Ill Guru Hrrrin linier 15115 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 exercises. 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.

The membership of the Club is steadily increasing. livery Thurs- day afternoon finds a group of ambitious students in Room 4.10. llany a profitable and interesting hour is spent taking dictation. studying difficult outlines. and learning the art of parliamentary pro- cedure. The object of the Club is to increase speed in Shorthand. and to broaden our knowledge of the business xvorld by visiting the dilierent interesting business places, commercial expositions. and business shows during the term. A Program Committee of three is appointed for the term to prepare work for every meeting. This material is dictated at a moderately slow rate at first, so that all will be able to take it down. Then it is read twice at a higher rate of speed. Each vveek a committee of three is appointed to take Klr. Heikes' speech in the Assembly, which is dictated with the other work. at the next meeting. For each meeting, one member is appointed scribe, who consults the dictionary and tells the correct outlines to the Club. The last Thursday of every month is especially set aside for the transaction of the business matters of the Club, in which we learn parliamentary law. VVe do not Want experts.

Loma 125 Uhr Qllaaa nf Slum, 1915 Our barque of school life at lVIorris is moored. Our career at Morris was a happy one, full of events, for our activities were many. This class, the largest in the history of the school, distinguished itself not only by athletic ability, but also, as we are proud to say, by its high scholarship. The two events of interest that marked the end of our days at lylorris were the Class Dance and the Class Day. The dance was unusually successful, because of the large attendance, and the Class Day exercises were said to be undoubtedly Hthe best ever." The two plays, "A Pair of Lunaticsn and "How the Vote VVas VVon," caused much laughter and merriment and was acted splendidly.

ROLAND REPPERT - 126 V tr vt W. Q Eh? Ah-uenturrra 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. C. XV. wr-mr ABou'r NIR-.rcmcv lwsnr ro um THE- IEWELEK?
