All this work could not have been done had it not been for the unselfish Way in which some members of the faculty gave up their time and energy to aid us. To Miss Hall, we owe a debt We can never repay for the many hours she gave up bo Board meetings, and to the going over of the material. lt was her care and patience that made possible the literary quality of the book. To Mrs. Nice also, we are greatly indebted for the untiring perseverance with which she pursued clubs and een- sors to get the pictures and write-ups. Miss Parker, by her loyal Work on the Art division of the book has done a great deal to make it attractive in appearance. We wish to thank Mr. Meyers, whose keen business insight has been of much aid in making the Annual a successful financial ventureg Mr. Kessler, whose persistent efforts secured us our great number of advertisements and Mr. Schlossberg, whose steady hammering insured the large circulation of the book. We feel that seeing the finished copy of the Work to which they 'have given so much will be the best thanks we can give them.

Before we dis- cuss this question, let us see what school spirit really means. Is school spirit the support of athletic and literary activities, the carrying away of trophies of the field of battle? All this is a part of school spirit, and the stimulus of competition and glow of victory seem always to please us, but school spirit is a far broader thing than this. The war has made a change in Morris. Our school has emerged from those harrowing days with a broader conception of education than the narrow recitation period. VVe have found that high school life has greater possibilities than our textbooks will permit, and in finding that, we have acquired the right school spirit. We consider school spirit to be the realization by the students of the greater meaning of high school life. Spirit is essentially an abstract thingg it may find application in cheering on the athletic field or attending debates, but it must exist within ourselves. The best kind of school spirit is not that which makes loud 11oise and show, but the steady, un- dying flame that keeps brightly burning somewhere deep in our hearts. And this is the spirit we have acquired. Look at our twelve golden stars, our twelve boys who have made the supreme sacri- fice, that the world might be made safe for democracy. Theirs was the real spirit, the steady, undying fiame, which moved them on to greater efforts, to greater service, to greater sacrifice, until they could do no more. O ye boys, with hearts of gold indeed, may your spirits hovering over us on heavenly wings inspire us always to do what is right and what is noble. lt is the splendid spirit of these boys that we are acquiring, and when we have that spirit, is it not petty to complain about the poor support of the athletic team or literary club? Let us not try to force this newly-found consciousness into any par- ticular groove, let us rather give it free play, to find an outlet 10 . Editorial where it wishes. We should be content that we have this fine spirit, the spirit that will make our Morris community a better place to live in, that will make us all better men and women. In this 1919 Annual, we have tried to mirror the life of the new Morris. We are showing the part, a small part, indeed, but a great work for us,-the part which our school has taken in the war. Of the literary work in the book, we feel justly proud, and can do so without being accused of egotism, for it is the work of the students, and our only task was to skim the cream from the milk. We consider some of our contributions to be works of real literary value, and hope you will find added pleasure from their perusal as the years roll on. The book, we realize, is rather more serious than its predecessors, but when we are all groping for a new light, those of us who have seemed to find some landmarks on the way should disclose them to the rest of us. "We're nearest Heaven when we 're young," sang the poet. Our high school days should be among the happiest days of our lives. We hope in this book to call up again in memory, in the dim days of the future, the many happy days and the many happy times we had in the new Morris. L. L- ll A Jlnrnunrh To The Board of Editors, and Business Staff of the Morris Annual, Greetings, and congratulations on this publication which records the achievements of the past year, and pays tribute to those, our Morris Boys, whose heroism and devoted service to our Repub- lic in the Great War are an inspiration for the dedication of ourselves to its service in the peace which their supreme sacri- fice has helped to secure, and so, too To All Morris Boys and Girls, Greetings and a word on some of the ideals that, as I sec it, should domi- nate the life of our school. The boys and girls who enroll at Morris thereby accept citizenship in a republic within its walls, dedicated to the ser- vice both of the individual and of the community, a republic in which consideration of the rights of others is the test of good conduct, and in which, exactly as in the nation, the basis of good citizenship is good will and cooperation, a republic in which equal opportunity is real and genuineg a republic in which only those receive the rewards and blessings of citizenship, who, by hard work and discipline, acquire an outlook upon life, at once loyal in purpose, constructive in deed, and reverent in spirit. We are privileged to be teachers and pupils in Morris, in the most momentous years in the history of mankind. In the words of President Wilsoii, "We are witnessing the dawn of a uew day1" The great lesson of the war forthe schools, is this: that only that man is efficient who is trained, and that the man who knows is the man who leads. Ours is the responsibility of upholding the high traditions of our beloved school, traditions of fair play and hard work, of honor, truth and service. A new tradition created for us by the war must ever, hereafter, be our inspiration. The glo- rious record of Morrisites in their country 's service challenges us to become their comrades, now and as long as life shall last, in reverence for the principles of democracy, and in unstinted 12 A Foreword support of its ideals in our land. Among all enlightened na- tions, democracy is to-day, not merely a sentimentg it is a creed, a. religion. Amongst our own people, its worshippers prize the precious heritage of the past, and are determined that the ty- ranny of neither king nor class shall overthrow the institutions of our Republic. In this crisis, and for this cause, I summon every Morrisite who enters our portals, to the high task of making the most of his opportunity. May we so discharge our sacred duty, that those who come after us, shall receive from us their heritage unsullied and enriched. 47 10 16 rs X I X l-3 ff .Q 1 N l xx' 2 - V Xl C -1.11 ' -Eats. iv X DEDICATION.

Theirs is a tale of duty done, which in the doing cost them life. Each one 's story we give to you. Some are long and some are short, but all tend toward the self-same end, Death for hu- manity. ,,, ,, ,. Emanuel Abel graduated from Morris in June 1914. He left Cornell where he was studying mechanical engineering and enlisted in Company A, 39th infantry. As he was a member of the Regular Army he was sent "Over thcren at once. On Sep- tember 30th, 1918, Private Abel lost his life in the Argonne- Meuse fighting. He was twenty-one years old at the time of his death. Lieutenant James f'owan Andes graduated from Morris in 1910. In school he was a member of the Rifle Team and won many medals. To him was given the signal honor of being one of three New York men to receive the Distinguished Service Medal. It was on July 19th, during heavy fighting near Sois- sons that he, at the head of his platoon, went over the top. He led his men in the face of heavy machine gun fire to a cave in which several Germans had taken refuge. Rather than allow his men to undergo the risk, he entered the cave and demanded the surrender of the enemy. As a result of this heroic act he was slain. Elliott B. Clark, Jr., met his death in the carrying out of his duty. While carrying a despatch on a motorcycle he col- lided with a truck. This resulted in his death. He was but seventeen years old at the time. Elliott had attended Inwood Annex and then the main building. He showed considerable activity, being a member of the Boy Scouts and several other organizations. Sergeant Lawrence F. Condon, of the 106th Infantry, was killed in action. On September 4th he entered battle and was 15 ELLIOTT B. CLARK, JR. NENN'BI2RRY HoI.BIz,00K WILLIAM J ONES DAVID VV. BIILLER 16 Gold Stars severely wounded by a shell which shattered his left leg. Un- conscious, he was borne to the operating table where he died. His unconsciousness saved him from terrible suffering. Sergeant Matthew f'1'0SS0l'l sailed for France with Com- pany E of the 54th Pioneer Regiment during August 1917. He was there for about a month before he came down with pneumonia. First reports showed that he was progressing fine- ly, but eventually he succumbed and on October 7th passed away. He was twenty-five The sergeant was a veteran in the service for he had been on duty at the Mexican border with the 71st Regiment. He graduated from Morris in June, 1912. Frederick Eriksen entered the service in 1917. He sailed with his regiment, the 107th of New York's famous 27th Divi- sion, for France in June 1918. The regiment was combined with British forces on the West front and soon entered battle. Eriksen on going over the top was struck by gunshot and in- stantly killed. He was buried by his comrades under a little wooden cross at Abeele, France. e Second Lieutenant Henry Gundlach entered the service in September 1917. At Camp Upton he was recommended for the Officer 's Training School, and obtained his commission. While in France he served with the 305th Infantry and the 111th, suc- cessively. As a member of the latter regiment he entered the fighting at Fismette on the Vesle River. It was during this action, on the morning of August 11th, that he met his death. Jeremiah S. Hennesey entered the U. S. Naval Reserve on May 27th, 1917 . After finishing his probation at the Pelham Bay Naval Training Station he volunteered as a guard over a T. N. T. plant in New Jersey. From here he was transferred to various battleships and in a very short time became coxswain. He was to have received his commission as Ensign when he fell sick of influenza. Ten days later he was attacked by pneumonia and succumbed. Before we entered the war, Newberry Holbrook went over with the City Ambulance Unit. For one year he saw conside- rable service with the French. Then the United States entered the conflict and he enlisted in the American Expeditionary Force. He was in active service until January, 1918, when he fell sick with typhoid fever, and shortly afterward died. Hol- brook was awarded the Croix de Guerre by the French Govern- ment for displaying great bravery. He drove his ambulance about under heavy gun fire regardless of self. Williani Jones entered the Officers' Training Camp at 17 HENRY GUNDLACH ISIDORE ROTGARD JEREMIAH S. HENNESY MATTHEW G. CROSSON 18 , Gold Stars Plattsburg as soon as he graduated from City College in June 1917. He was the only man in the College to pass the entrance tests for this camp. He never saw actual service, for he was attacked by para-typhoid, of which he died, after only three months of training. I At Morris he had been a member of the football team, and Won his HM". He graduated in June 1913. David W. Miller served with the 30th Engineers at Camp Upton. On March 30th, feeling ill, he was permitted to go home. From here he was removed to the Polyclinic Hospital, suffering from appendicitis. An operation proved ineffectual and he died on March 17th, 1918. Isidore Rotgard, who in his letters home expressed the ut- most abhorrence toward the Germans for their atrocities, by a strange turn of fate was himself slain as a result of an atrocity. Some American forces, among which was Rotgard's regiment, were engaged in hand to hand fighting in a dense forest near the Marne. During the engagement Rotgard was wounded and sent to a hospital twenty miles behind the lines. While he was on the operating table German airplanes bombed the hospital and Rotgard wa killed. Missing in Action Lieutenant Philip Hassinger went to France with the American Aviation corps. It was on September 28th, during the Saint Mihiel drive, that he went up over thc lines in an aero- plane and failed to return. As no definite news of his fate has ever come, there is still a faint hope that he may even yet re- turn . Q Q g The following letter explains itself. We have given it a place in the ANNUAL because we feel that it gives better expres- sion to the spirit in which these boys entered the service and laid down their lives than any words of ours could do. Praise from us would be poor in comparison with the splendid sense of dedication to the cause of Right pervading every sentence. Rotgard's own words are the most fitting memorial for him and for his comrades. V . . . . . . .We have been drilling and working pretty strenuously lately, so that I could not find time to write you sooner. We dig trenches, have gas mask drill, take long hikes. One feels pretty tired at the end of the day. However it is great training and hardens one to -the point where he can endure anything. Al- though conditions are quite different, naturally, from what 19 LAXNRIGNCIC F. UONDON J AMES COWAN ANDES EMANUEL ABEL FREDIWICK ERIKSEN 20 Gold Stars they were at Camp, the authorities are doing their utmost to provide us with all conveniences and comforts, knowing this, we look at everything in a cheerful light and we know that this optimism and unwillingness to grumble is an earnest of the fine things we are going to do at the front. How proud I am of being an American! The people of this town somewhere-in-France tell me that they admire Ameri- can clan, American generosity, and the American spirit of fair play. Perhaps I am overstepping the bounds of modesty but I am merely giving you a transcript of the words of various Allied soldiers I have spoken to. The Canadians are certain that We shall make as good a showing as they, the Australians are sure that we shall share with them the task of wiping out the Huns, the English "Tommies" like the freedom and ease of our ways. Furthermore, some of the Allied soldiers say that the Americans now in the front line are putting up a splendid fight against the I-Iuns. It is proverbial that one does not know how good a thing is until he misses it. Therefore, when a Lieutenant who hails from a western state told me of the fine soldiers that come from the West, of the fine people that live there, and of the splendid opportunities one can find there, it began to dawn on me what a wonderful country our United States is. It is so big, so gener- ous, so fair to all, that it is a privilege to fight for such a land. Being a soldier is not a trivial game, yet when one remembers that our country is trying to spread the light of liberty, inter- national fairplay, and the right to live and let live, throughout the world, one can endure anything. American adaptability, which enables our soldiers to beat their instructors at their own game, and American patriotism will tame the Hun. Inasmuch as this day has been decreed Mother's Day, I have written to my parents and expressed to them my deep gratitude for the numerous sacrilices they made so that I might get a college education. But their previous unselfishness is no- thing in comparison with their ready willingness to let me en- joy the privilege of fighting for the best country in the World. Although they worry and perhaps silently suffer, I am proud of having parents who would be ashamed to have me stay at home in the present crisis. Isrnoms Rorcaan, Co. H, 307th Infantry.

Thought Enthusiasm Caution Instruction Learning Reputation Education Intelligence Friendship The Soul of Man Daughters to Instruction Daughters to Education ACT I. Scene-A small garden surrounded by a high circular wall All over the smooth-shaven grass are bright white daisies, with sparkling buttercups liberally sprinkled among them. Here and there are bushes with roses in full bloom. At the largest of these bushes, in the center of the garden, are seated three figures, wearing rose-colored garments. Instruction, in the center, is a charming matron, whose golden hair, blue eyes, and fair cheeks have not yet lost the lustre of youth. At her right is Learning, a maiden with a comely, but expressionless face 5 such a one as is chiseled out by artists, which lacks the feeling of life.. At her left is Reputation, a bewitching damsel, whose bright, laughing eyes and pretty dimples have won her many slavish followers. Through a small door in the wall at the side of the garden enter Galahad, Thought, Enthusiasm and Caution. Galahad is a lad of thirteen, rather small in stature, with' dark hair, a well-formed face, and the hope and idealism of V youth shining in his deep brown eyes. Thought is a kindly, grave spirit and follows Galahad about like a faithful nurse- It is impossible to describe her, for her appearance is always chang- ing. Enthusiasm and Caution, though sister and brother, are direct opposites. The one clad in bright gold, romps about playfully, and all who see her cannot escape from the con- tagion of joy in her lively eyes. The other is groomed in sombre brown, his pace is stately, almost melancholy, his frown chills the happy feelings of those who are near him. 23 The Triumph of Education Galahad: Camazedj What is this? Thought: This is the realm of Instruction, Where we make our first halt. After that we will pass beyond this wall into the garden of Education. Keep your wits about you, Galahad, for upon the choice you make now depends your whole future. Galahad: C more amazed than beforel Are my high school days, then, so important that my whole future depends on them? I thought they were merely meant to prepare me for college, or a vocation. Thought: Nay, my son, that is the mistake so many make, to their sorrow. Your high school days are a preparation for life -even more, they are a great part, perhaps the sweetest part, of life itself. Galahad the boy will be moulded into Galahad the man in one of these two gardens. Take heed that the charms of Instruction do not overcome you, we must see Education before we make our choice . Her warning falls on deaf ears, for Instruction, spying the youth, comes forward with her two daughters smilinglg to greet him, and Galahad is oblivious of all else in regarding the charm- ing group. Instruction: Welcome to our kingdom, young Galahad. Here will you find the greatest happiness, for many have found it here before you. Be obedient to me and my daughter Learn- ing: Reputation, too, will help to make your days interesting and profitable, and then your sojourn here will be one of end- less bliss. Learning: Cextending her hand to Galahadj Come, my young friend, I will teach you all the things worth knowing in this world . If you but spend your four years in this garden in my hands, you will leave it well equipped to take your proper place in the world. Reputation: Ctahing his other hand, and laughinglg drag- ging him forwardb Do come, Galahad. We 'll play together, and have such fine times here. You'll like me, I'm sure you will, everybody does. CGalahad follows them in a dazej 24 1 ' The Triumph of Education Thought: Cwhispering to himj Remember my Warning Galahad, do not choose to rest here until you have seen the other garden, or you may pay dearly for it. Enthusiasm: Cinterrupting in a loud uoicej Go, master, I fol- low. Who could wish a betterplace to live in than this, where one has helpful Learning and mulch sought-after Reputation! Galahad disregards Thought, and walks on, closely dogged by Enthusiasm. Caution lags behind. 'Thought exits, discon- solately shaking her head. After her exit,:the one door in the garden vanishes, leaving a solid wall. Curtain ACT II. Two years later Scene I. -The same garden, but greatly changed. Most of the grass has died away, the little that remains is yellow and .shriveled up. The daisies droop their heads, and the buttercups are faded. The roses have all disappeared, and the bushes are now nothing more than bare twigs. Against one of these are seated Learning and Galahad. The latter looks tired, disap- pointed. Enthusiasm sulks away to one side. Caution looks unusually grave. Caution: Cto Galahadj Alas, Galahad, see what you have done to my sister! Instruction and her daughters no longer please her, they have crushed all the spirit out of her. You have suffered in her an irremediable loss. Why do you not break away from your prison here, and go with her to brighter climes? P Galahad: Indeed, Caution, I am tired here. The smallness of the place oppresses me, and its beauty has vanished, as you see. I can no longer find pleasure in the garden nor with these women. CTo Learning, impatientlyl Come, cease your talk. You may be valuable to me, you may develop my brain, but man is more than a mere machine for cramming facts. There is a deeper spirit, a more holy Hame in man, which struggles for existence, and which you do your best to stifle. I wish I had never chosen to rest with you. 25 The Triumph of Education Learning: Qcalling out in dismayj Mother, Sister, come here quickly! Galahad is no longer willing to stay with us! Instruction and Reputation come running up. Reputation: What, Galahad, do my charms no longer please you? Is it not your ambition to stand high in the eyes of the world, to have all men bow down at your feet? You have been a faithful pupil to my sister these last two years, continue so two years longer, and I will lead you to an earthly throne, amid the plaudits of all. ' Galahad: Cscornfullyj I care no longer for your empty show. There are better things in life than mere selfish pride and ambition. Instruction: Galahad, does this garden not give you, do we not give you, happiness? All others have remained with us, and have gone out, knowing all things, and standing high in the eyes of the world. VVhat could one seek that is better than that? Galahad: Nay, Madam, this wall hems me in, the garden has lost its beauty for me. Others may have been happy here, because they knew of nothing better, but last night, as I slept, I had a vision of another garden, which is boundless in extent, and which always keeps the beauty of spring, where earthly things are forgotten, and where one lives in higher and purer regions, I will not rest content until I have entered that gar- den. Oh Thought, please come and deliver me from here. Immediately a cloud appears, deposits Thought, and van- ishes. Instruction, Learning and Reputation draw back in fear. Thought: I heard your prayer, my son, and came here straightway. Know thou that whenever thou wishest Thought, she is right at hand, ready to help thee. The vision of last night is that of a real garden, the garden of Education. It was sent by me to make you tired of lying here in a rut, to make you wish for something better. This garden can offer you nothing real, see how they cannot stand against me C pointing to the three fig- ures slinhing sullenly awayj-But come, enough of this, we will pass into the garden of your dreams. 26 The Triumph of Education As Galahad, Thought, Enthusiasm and Caution approach the wall, a door suddenly appears, through which exeunt.J Curtain Scene II.-Another garden. This garden has no walls and no limitsg it stretches on all sides as far as the eye can see. There is no entrance to it, the four travelers have in some miraculous way landed in it. The grass all about is covered with violets and dark pansies, with rose bushes at more frequent intervals than in the other garden. Beside one of these are seated the god- desses of the garden. Education, clad in white, is in the center, grave and thoughtfulg of tall figure and commanding bearing. At first glance, she is not so attractive as Instruction, but as Galahad gazes more steadfastly on her jet black hair, her rosy cheeks, and her wonderful deep brown eyes, which have in them worlds of feeling, he forgets the passing charm of Instruction in the deeper, more lasting beauty of Education. And so it is with the two figures in deep blue on either side. Intelligence, at the right, is dark, like her mother, and her face is so expres- sive that Learning, with her emotionless features, pales into in- significance compared with her. Friendship, the third member of the group, has also that dark beauty which does not attract so many at first as the fair and charming Reputation, but here one can never tire of gazing on that serene, happy, beautiful face. Education spies Galahad, and comes forward with her daughters, their hands outstretched, and kind smiles on their faces. Education: Welcome, my son, I am glad to see you. I am glad that you have escaped from the snares of my foster-sister, Who, pretending to be me, has caught many who were coming here, and kept them with her forever, poor unfortunates. How fared you there? Q Galahad: fin disgustj Ah, Madam, at fir-st I was overjoyed at being there, but soon my joy was turned into misery. I -found that I was cramped in by the wall, through which I could flnd no means of escape. The garden grew uglier and uglier day by day, and I saw that what I had mistaken for beauty in Learning and Reputation were merely surface charms, which soon vanlshed. I grew sick of gazing in Learning's empty face, and Reputa- 27 The Triumph of Education tion's promises had little effect on me, for I ceased to care for such things. My pretended friends, they stuffed up my brain with as much as they could, and fed not a crumb to my deeper spirit. But Chneeling respectfully before Educotionj I hope I may find here real, lasting happiness. Education: Cruising him upb Indeed you will, dear Gala- had, for those that seek happiness here always find it, but alas, too few have strength enough to leave the other garden and come here. I cannot promise you worldly success, as does my foster-sister, but I promise you spiritual and moral success. The life of the inhabitants of this garden is that of which the poet sings: "Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife, Their sober wishes never learned to stray, Along the cool, sequestered vale of life, They kept the even tenour of their way." Cturning, and showing the gardenj, As you see, this garden is boundless, and it is my dearest wish that you should not rest in one narrow spot, but should wander over as much of it as you can, though no mortal being can ever see all of it. I will not try to force anything on you, the natural reaction to force is disobedience. I will rather try to draw out the best that is in you, to guide you along the higher planes of life. If you follow your own inclinations, but let my daughters help you, I am sure that you will find this garden ever beautiful and our company ever inspiring. Intelligence: Though Learning's mandates are important and valuable, there are more vital things in life than she knows of, and so I will try to guide you in understanding character, and the actions and motives of life, in knowing the people of whom this world is made up, in interpreting events, rather than learning them. I will help you descend deep into the well of Philosophy, instead of merely tasting at the surface, as you did with my cousin. Friendship: Love is the dearest and the most precious thing in this world, Galahad. I will try to help you in selecting friends, so that you will soon have a chosen few, who love you, and whom you love. Then will your life become bigger and broader. I hope that you will also grow to love your fellow-men 28 The Triumph of Education by serving them wherever you can. Reputation requires com- petition, for only by raising yourself above your fellow-men could you achieve the rewards she offers. My faith is in co- operation, in working together with your comrades for the com- mon good.

CBursts into tears.D Education: Ctaking him in her armsj No, no, my son, do not weep, you have discovered your mistake earlier than most people-indeed, many never discover it at all. We must learn by sad experience, and yours, fortunately, has been a short one. You have still two years in which you may remain with us, and you can make those years full of bliss- At this point the Soul of Man enters. Her face is heavenly, and there is a divine halo playing about her. She is robed in the colors of the sunrise, the beautiful auroral flush of the new- born day. Her colors are ever changing with the sun. She is indeed not of this sordid earth, but rather some ethereal being. The Soul of Man: Galahad, my dear friend, I am so glad that you have made this choice, for now I can dwell with you forever. I am that deeper, spiritual self in you, I am your soul, that struggled to find expression in the garden of Instruc- tion, but could not. Here I am free to go with you on your journey through life. I am glad that you have given up your senseless book-learning for the cultivation of lasting friendship, fl the thinking of good and noble thoughts, for the apprecia- tion of the good and the beautiful in poetry, in literature, in music, in art, for by so doing, you have brought me to life. Curtain 29 Triumph of Education ACT III. Two years later. Scene-The same. But the garden is much more beautiful than before. The grass is longer and greener, the modest vw- lets lift their heads, the colors of the pansies blend most delight- fully, the roses are entirely open, giving forth all their beauty and all their sweet fragrance to the senses. At the same bush are seated Education, Intelligence and Friendship, whose beauty has increased, ratherthan diminished with the years. Galahad is a tall boy of seventeen, and his eyes now, in addi- tion to their hope and idealism, have begun to acquire that mysterious something which makes Education and her daughters so beautiful. His head rests peacefully in the lap of Education. The Soul of Man sits by his side, their constant companionship has made them closer friends than ever. Thought and Enthu- siasm smile approvingly on Galahad, and even Caution wears ever a smile, instead of the usual frown. Galahad: Dear Mother Education, and Mentors, Intelli- gence and Friendship, I need not say how happy you have made me. You have helped me discover my dearest friend, my Soul, since I entered your garden, my life has seemed to expand into something bigger and better. All my friends, Thought, Enthu- siasm, and even Caution approve my resting here, and when these are all of one mind, We may safely follow them. And they are right, for here I have found real happiness. The Soul of Man: Ay, Galahad, you have tasted in this gar- den of the true fruits of life. May you continue to dwell here forever. . Curtain.

HEN Mr. Robert Horace Lixon Elmer Van s v Q , Teller entered the clubhouse that evening- as he was wont to do-he found a group of gf .. ,e,rn , his fellow clubmen gathered in the reading Eh L room. Not being of an intensely curious na- ar, llf jr ture, yet entertaining a little interest in the f matter, he took a magazine and proceeded to " occupy an armchair beside the gentleman who was the center of attention. There sat Smith, fiushed and excited, talking volublyg his voice not infrequently accompanied by a dignified gesture. "-and upon my word, gentlemen, it happened exactly as she had said." He stopped short. 'tWhat happened?" Teller put in innocently. "The prophecy, of course, my friend. Miraculous beyond a doubt." f'What prophecy?" pressed Teller. With some impatience Smith heaved a sigh and answered: t'Naturally, the prophecy that fortune teller madef' The young gentleman in the armchair to his right sniffed contemptuously. "Oh pshaw," he muttered, f'you're hopeless, positively, Smith. The first ridiculous fad happening along finds you a staunch adherent. Now it's fortune humbugs. VVhat next?'l Manifestly disgusted, he closed the unused 'tAtlantic Monthlyl' in his lap after replying with the cynicism above quoted. It must here be said that Van Teller was quite popular among his friends. His youthful exuberance gained for him a liking that was unconcealed. He often caused altercations at the club however through divergence of opinion. And this was just such an occasion. Smith, though our young friend did not know it, was Teller's rival in the deep sea of matrimony- His elder companion hesitated dubiously for a moment and then seeming to acquire courage afresh, turned on him with a distinct air of conviction. "See here, Van Teller," Smith spoke earnestly and with some indication of his being indignant, "I do not admit that I am in any way superstitious, but what I see and-what is more 34 Teller's Fortune Teller A Fable -actually take part in--is indisputably and conclusively the truth-unless my mind play traitor." Van Teller now addressed himself to a third party who, with a hand resting carelessly on either chair, had until now discreetly refrained from taking part in the conversation. But the discourse, noisy as it was, had wrought up in him a desire to indulge in the vocal gymnastic exercise. "Sorry, Teller, but I'm rather inclined to agree with Smith, here. I recall the circumstances of the aifair distinctly." "You simply refuse to be shown," Smith added. "You as- sume that your view is the only o11e worth taking, and repel any other. Only remember what Emerson said: 'What is the scholar, if not a patron to every new idea of his time?' " "Oh no, you 're unfair. I 'm simply incredulous about that sort of thing." "I'm willing to wager that you would be interested if you were to try it once." This suggestion was made with a staggering recklessness of manner. "No use," the younger rejoined . "I take no stock in it. It's lit for women-not for men of common sense." "Don't dispute about it. Why not call his bluff, Teller," a bystander put in. The young man spoken to only grunted in responsebut the more impulsive Smith dived into the recesses of his dress- coat pocket and produced a familiar check-book. "Fifty iron men if I fail to satisfy you," he shouted. Van Teller for once sought inspiration in the faces of his fellow clubmen. Encouragement was the only feeling displayed so he promptly followed his friend 's example. After a few seconds of feverish scrawling, broken only by an occasional "Drat that fountain pen," two fresh checks were flourishing in the hands of the rapturous Beals, the third party. "When shall we visit her?', "Whom? Madame Fortuna Humbugga?" Smith queried. "Now, if you want to. George"-he called to the' colored waiter-"have a taxi at the south entrance immediately." With a vehement "Come, you idiot," he caught Van Teller by the arm, settled for the drinks, and, hustling him into a waiting car, gave a few hurried directions to the chauffeur. ' ,ss Telle1"s Fortune Teller A Fable Presently they were motoring through the thickly conges- ted precincts of "Little Italy". The car stopped before a di- lapidated brick structure somewhere on lower First Avenue where they alighted. Van Teller took a rapid survey of the neighborhood. "What a peculiar air this place has," he commented in a loud voice. "It savors of everything from stilettos and spa- ghetti to scallions and heavy rye bread." Smith, notwithstanding, failed to smile, the reason- obvious. Leaning against a fence within y earshot, with his swarthy features downcast, stood an Italian organ-grinder of the most sinister appearance. It was evident that he had heard the remarks for he raised his head comprehendingly. Our young acquaintance felt something strongly akin to fear take hold of him when his glance, following that of his friend, fell on the fellow by the fence. Smith came to the rescue by dragging him up the front stairs and ringing the door-bell violently. "Phew,' Teller admitted, when arriving at the top, "I shouldn't like to meet that fellow in a dark alley-way. He does look strange." "To be sure-but come, here is the attendant." A young girl had answered the call. "Is Madame at home?" he asked with a spectre of a bow to the domestic. "Yes, Seigneurf' They were ushered into what resembled-in its relative position to the other rooms of the apartment-a parlor, and accordingly waved into chairs. Van Teller looked curiously around. In the center of the room was a table of typically oriental design surmounted by a Turkish hookah. A jumble of swords, shields, battle axes, and what not covered the walls. Between what appeared to be imitation oriental rugs one was able to catch glimpses of a rough board iioor. Moreover the heavy tapestries that were draped about the room and parti- tioned off an alcove C a sort of divanj at the farther end of the chamber denoted what effort the mistress had made to approach true oriental taste. These gave the room a distinctly dreamy atmosphere. 36 Teller's Fortune Teller A Fable All at once the tapestries near the divan parted and Ma- dame Fortuna Humbugga herself entered amid all the flowing glories of a camouflaged bathrobe and a clumsy salaam executed by her attendant. Van Teller sniekered at the awkard entry and com- menced to show signs of an outburst, but a timely poke adminis- tered by the Smith person saved the situation. "You will have zee kindness to seet een zee mystic chair," she said to the stranger. She pointed out a metal throne of questionable appearance. Van Teller scrutinized it carefully and was finally prevailed upon to sit in it. In the increasing darkness of the room a red lamp flickered and in its light Madame was seen describing a serpentine mo- tion with her arms over ia crystal ball, every now and then emitting a wierd moan. To say there was no scientific instrument efficient enough to record the vibrations made by the clicking of Van Teller 's teeth during this process would be putting it mildly. On to the seance itself. What a number of startling facts were revealed. Teller learned for the first time that he was graduated from Harvard, that he was born one year previous to his birth, and that he was the only living reincarnation of the ancient Scandinavian God "Nemo Domi." "Am I to get no truths for my money?" he plaintively re- quested when he had succeeded in halting the fusillade of speech sufficiently to enable him to get a word or two in side- ways. "Ah yes," was the rejoinder, "all that I speak is truth. Thee main difficulty lies in thee fact that you, man of thee earthly mind, have been influenced by what is known as illu- sions!" CSome more serpentine actioni. "You bet-man of the earthly mind,"the patron of the oc- cult said to himself. t'Yours is confoundedly unearthlyf Nevertheless his interest was rising to a more marked pitch. 'fWhen shall I die?" Out went the light and with its departure V311 Teller be- came aware of a violent shaking in the region of his knees. This he was powerless to control. Madame 's voice rang through the darkness. "At the stroke of twelve at midnight on Friday, the thir- 37 ! Teller's Fortune Teller' A Fable teenth of March!" "How am I to know that?" he demanded. "The day before it happens you will be threatened with impending destruction by a man with an ape." And up went the light. When Van Teller reached home that night he dismissed his man and retired to think. "Ha-ha," he laughed to himself, "Friday, the thirteenth of March. She must take me for a mad March hare. She 's a faker--no questionf' Still at brief, intermittent periods his face would become tense with bitter thought. Perhaps there was some truth in what she had said. After all, no woman would dare venture so rash a statement. He was astounded to find himself so moved by what he had treated with levity. For that night and many nights to come, his rest was dis- turbed by visions and dreams of monkeys, organ-grinders and more apes. This thing affected him so, that the boys at the club began to ask into his welfare with some concern. To these courtesies he would answer as definitely as the oracle at Delphi. Smith wisely avoided him with a smile. Van Teller even ne- glected his semi-weekly visits to Genevieve and that in itself betrayed the seriousness of his case. Ah, Genevieve, sweet maiden of eighteen falls: and he about to make the nineteenth in the form of a proposal. By Thursday, the twelfth of the fatal month, he was on the verge of a state of emaciation Cone of the few states not yet gone bone-dryj. ' That morning as he bounded to the curb in front of the club a hand was thrust in front of him and he became instantly sensible of the strains of "Sweet Rosie O'Grady". At the same time a small. red-coated monkey climbed to his shoulder and sat there gibbering and hugging him as emotionally as though Van Teller were his long lost brother. "Look," the Italian said, "see how de monk like-a de reech- a meester. Sure you gonna giva heem-a de coin-eh?" When, following the voice, Teller set his eyes on the speaker he felt the ground sink beneath him. He stood quaking, not knowing whether to walk on or cry for help. "No, no," he replied, "I have nothing today." and attemp- ted to move on. The gesticulating individual obstructed the stairs. 38 Teller's Fortquue Teller' A Fable The door man came down now and took a hand in remov- ing the demonstrative hindrance. "I feex-a youf' was the last thing he said and biting his index finger, drew it across his throat. Wildly Teller leaped back into the auto and sped home- wards. He was in a frenzy when he reached there. "Pull down every shade in the house and lock the doors," he yelled. Then our young friend imbibed some fire water. Into a chair he threw himself and covered his head with his arms in true ostrich fashion. "Oh, oh" he sobbed, "Genevieve must be another's. I must not cause her a shock by my death. I shall drop quietly out of her life and leave her everythin ." During that last short night he slipt with clothes on and throughout the next ,day abstained from everything save liquor. The following evening he wrote a farewell note containing his last will and testamentg then sat grimly awaiting his fate. Towards eleven o'clock he was overpowered with a craving desire for sleep. But no-he must meet his death awake and in full possession of his senses. Against his will his head drooped lower and lower until-he slept. Had he been awake at that moment he would have seen a flashlight playing about the window behind him. Then he would have heard a scratching of glass. A dark cloaked figure swept up behind him and laid a heavy hand on his shoulder. He started, shrieked, but a steel blade descended and penetrated him. V "Help, I'm killed!" he called With a bang his bedroom door collapsed and his terrified butler entered, envelope in hand. "What's wrong, sir?" he gasped breathlessly. "There, pull the dagger out of my corpse. I'm dead, I tell you." With a knowing smile Jones withdrew from his master's shirt the cravat pin. Somehow it had been forced in the wrong way and inflicted a slight wound. "A telegram, sir." Van Teller seized it and read: ' 'Dear Van: Genevieve and I have just been married. No hard feelings. Smith. ' ' 39 Tellcfs Forlmle Teller A Fable HFutliei' was right," the young man said, Hxvell, let 'eni enjoy thu money as my wedding gift.

"J ack is a hero," a lady once remarked as she watched the boys, "but Bob-y' "But, Bob," interposed another, 'tBob is so lovable." And those Cl131lC6 remarks summed up the two boys better than any others. The older of the two, serious, grave, with an almost holy fire in his deep gray eyes, determinedly faced his younger bro- ther. The latter had a gay, carefree expression on his face al- though for a moment a look of fear flitted over it. Then gravely tlicking the ashes from his cigarette, he sardonieally answered, "Oh well, don it mind mc, Jack, don't bother taking care of me." "I do care for you, Bob," answered Jack. "You know that. Why, l have taken care of you since you were a wee toddler, but this, this is different." HI don 't see it that way. lt's a beastly war and why any- one should desire to go over and get killed is beyond me." He shrugged his shoulders and turned away.

"How like Bob," thought his brother, "always aiming for the highest things but depending on some one else to boost him up. But I suppose I must help him. After allt'-and he sat in the mellow afternoon sunlight and looked back over the past.

"Luck to you," answered Bob. It was months later. The two brothers, on leave in Biar- ritz had met by chance. They were now leaving for their regi- ments and for the firing line. To Jack it was the most joyful moment of his existence, that zero hour when he would go over the top. To Bob-but to Bob it was a tragedy to be put off as long as possible. ' 1 . "Lieut. Robert Orothers is found guilty of cowardice in the face of the enemy," pronounced the Judge of the Court Martial. "And," he continued, "I condemn him to be shot." A few more words, a final rustling of papers, the court was dis- missed and the guilty officer was led away. , And in the meantime: "Lieut. John Orothers is awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for conspicuous and extra- ordinary bravery in the face of the enemy. He is hereby com- missioned a captain." it it . i In "But Jack, you must do something. You can 't let me die. Think of the disgrace." "You should have thought of that before," answered his brother who had just arrived at the little French town where his brother was held. "Yes," he continued, Hyou should have thought of that when you turned and fled like a coward. Oh, Bob, how could you do it? How could you?" "I don 't know. Something made me turn and run. I was so afraid to die. Oh, Jack," as the thought of his impending doom came to him, "Oh, Jack, I am so afraid to die. You must save me. You must." And Bob grovelled pitifully at his bro- ther 's feet. - "I'll see what I can do," answered Jack shortly. "But brace up. Act like a man. Must you always act the coward?" "I can 't help it, Jack . I'm so afraid to die." 43 Two Brothers . A few days later the two brothers again sat facing each other in the dark tent. "live a plan to save you,H said Jack. 4'Oh Jack, tell me, tell me.

UBut," continued Jack, "you must act bravely. Step out with a smile and don 't act like the coward that you are." "I will,-oh, I will." ' as as an "All ready, sir", said the soldier, saluting. Jack rose wearily to his feet. He strode across the field to the place where the soldiers stood facing the open grave. The prisoner was led forth. Cheerfully he obeyed his orders. The soldiers stared, amazed. Was this the supposed coward, so happily stepping forth to his death? v ' A soldier stepped forward to blindfold him. Bob waved him away and smiled at his brother. Sadly the captain gave his commands. "Ready," and then "Fire" Twelve rifles rang out and Bob fell to the ground, a smile on his face-dead. "Thank God," hoarsely whispered his brother, "he died like a man." And unabashed he put his head in his arms and wept.

ORENS, '22. 46 Frrrg Fhilanhrr Hhiliruhhg HEN, in the year of our Lord 1918, a call was made to the students of the High School for volunteers for farm service, Percy Phil- ander Philicuddy was among the first to an- swer to his country 's call. Percy was 18 years oldg a strapping fellow, having been substi- tute on the High School 's chess teamg he was imbued with that indomitable spirit: the A Spirits of Eau de Cologneg besides these qualities he was left-handed, and psycho- logical research tells us that left-handed people are endowed with more brains than the ordinary kind of human being, and Percy Philander Philicuddy was the exception which proved the rule. Having given you a deep insight into the intricate character of our hero we will now proceed to his home, the time being the night previous to the morning after which he was to leave the wilds of Brooklyn for the civilised section of New York State known as New Jersey. This is not the authorls but our hero 's description of his destination. This statement of our he- ro's may be explained by the fact that he had received 33 in his Solid Ivory, I mean, Solid Geometry Regent's Exam. When we meet our hero, Percy was standing in a room bending over a valise which he was in the act of closing. The call t'Philly, come down to your last supper," stopped himg he hurried down leaving the valise unclosed. NVe shall use this op- portunity to investigate the contents of the valise. The last thing that had been packed was a pair of white flannel pants, under these pants we found three white silk shirts, alongside of which we discerned about half a dozen white silk handkerchiefs. Had we not been previously informed otherwise, we might have concluded that Percy Philander was going to Palm Beach, excluding the fact that great doubts assailed our mind as to the sanity of our hero. Vile shall now discard these implements of pleasure and continue our search. At this stage the first point in favor of the would-be farmer makes its appear- ance, viz. an old suitg this was followed by a. sweater, a bathrobe and three books, the titles of which were, Hlleft-Handed People and Their Misuse on Earth" by I. M. Lafteyg a "Treatise on the Use of Cosmetics" by I. Mabarba, and lastly "Bohemia" by one of its denizens. Disgusted yet amused, we had decided to abandon this investigation, when curiosity prompted us to close 47 if " Percy Philrmclcr Philicuddy the valisc, turn it upside-down, open it and-we started back in amazement, for this is what we saw: a complete manicuring set, a tin of t'Cleana' ', which guarantees the buyer to make his hands as white as snow and as soft as velvet, and if it does not give satisfaction the buyer is at liberty to send the tin back to the factory and the company will refund him the postage. Next we found a bottle of ED. QP1NAUD's Eau de Cologne and a stick of cosmetic, a pair of gloves, white kid, and a bottle of Black's liniment for sore muscles. All these things remind us of the following court trial: Clerk-Gentlemen of the jury, are you agreed upon a verdict? Foreman-We are. Clerk-NVhat is the verdict of the jury? Foreman-Insanity. We shall now leave our hero and proceed to the Farm Cadet Camp where he is to arrive the following afternoon. Percy Philander Philicuddy arrived in camp in the evening of the following day. The delay can be explained by the fact that instead of taking the train for Woodbury, L. I., as he should have done, he took the train for Woodbury, N. Y. He was re- ceived with derisive laughter and nodding of elbows by the rest of the boys in camp, who immediately nicknamed him the "Miss- ing Link" of Darwin 's theory of the descent of man. Looking at our youthful patriot we can 'ti blame Darwin for calling it the Descent of man . From that time on Percy was the laughing stock of the camp and the subject of numerous practical jokes and pranks. Had he not complained of this treatment, his life might have been more bearable in camp, but when Mr. Gracey, the teacher-in-charge, acquainted the boys with the fact that, on the complaint of Percy, he wanted them to ease up a little, our would-be farmer's death warrant had unconsciously been sealed. VVhen the time to go to bed had finally arrived, Percy Philander was shown the cot where he was to pass the night. Glad that now at least he would be free from the pranks of his fellow camp-mates, he stretched himself and prepared to retire, he undressed himself, sat down on the bed and thought of the chocolate sundaes and demi-tasses he had missed, of the visits to the barber and the manicure, to the confectioner and to his girl he had not made. Then, having exhausted his capacity for thought he looked at the inviting pillow and rather violently put his head upon it, and with a cry of " ouch" rather more violently 48 Percy Philrmder Philfic uddy jumped out of bed. When Mr. Gracey arrived on the scene and inquired as to what had happened, Percy showed him a big bump on his head. Upo11 investigation it was found that a big rock had been placed underneath the pillow, causing this acci- dent. When the "Missing Link" got up the following morn- ing, he found, to his inconvenience, that his shoes were filled with water, his stockings filled with burrs and his pants, pockets filled with sand. At breakfast nothing was done to young hope- ful except that one of the boys, having announced that he was about to imitate David Warfield in the HAuctioneer", placed his hand upon Percy's head and in a gruff voice demanded "How much for this lumber yard?" The answers are of no importance as Percy was not there to hear them. After break- fast he was sent to a nearby farmer. Now were we to put down the exact words the farmer used in describing Percy Philander's work, we would probably become notorious as the latest addition to the Rogues, Gallery, therefore we desist. The farmer had told the would-be farmer to hoe a patch of tomatoes, first having carefully explained and shown him how to do it. Half an hour later Percy reported to the real farmer as having inished his work, this was rather surprising, considering the fact that the "would be" was a green hand and that it would require four hours for an experienced worker to finish this same patch. His employer returned with him to the scene of, as it later was proved, great carnage. What Percy really had done can be de- duced from the farmerls words: "I told you to hoe these toma- toes not to plough up the landf, VVhat the farmer saw was this: all his tomatoes had been rooted up by the hoe wielded by Percy. What the farmer did was this: he told the "Missing Link" to "beat it off his ground before he sicked his dogs on him." Percy returned to camp dcjectedly and reported the un- fortunate occurrence to Mr. Gracey. The latter, sorry but amused, told him not to give it up, encouraged him and cited the well known and much quoted pro- verb, "If you don 't succeed at firstf' When the rest of the boys returned from work they hailed Percy with 'tHello, Missing Link" or " 'Lo, Missing" and even " 'Lo, Darwin's Inspira- tion." Strange to relate, Percy Philander Philicuddy was not offended but answered good humoredly, though in a lowered voice as though he was ashamed of his own boldness, "Hello, 49 Percy Philcmder Philicuddy Shorty" or " 'L0, Spaghetti" or whatever the nickname of the boy addressed happened to be. As soon as the boys heard of his experience they immediately added another cognomen to his already long listg this time it was "The Wrecking Crew." At dinner when tomatoes were put on the table as a side-dish, the cry of "Hey, Wrecking Crew, get the hoe will ye" was heard. To this, Philly, to give him a more dignified name than "Missing Link" or "Wrecking Crew" and a more human name than Percy Philander Philieuddy, answered: " All right boys ,but wait till I've lived up to my name in regard to the tomatoes, then I'll get the hoe." The latter looked at each other in astonishment for such words were never expected from him, they silently decided that the "Missing Link" was becoming less and less of a missing link. Philly lived through some more of the boys? pranks, among which was the one when, after being tossed up in a blanket a few times, he was solemnly declared a member, of the Order of the Sacred Ape. Still it must be remarked that from then on the boys treated Philly as one of their own and not as a Percy Philander Phili- cuddy. Then next morning Percy got up firmly resolved to make good. He was sent to a farmer who lived quite a dis- tance away from his former employerg this time when Philly was told to hoe, he hoed and did not plough. He returned to camp at three instead of at six howeverg when he got to camp he went to his cot, tested his pillow, and went' to bed. He fell asleep quickly, not getting up until the mid.dle of the night, when it suddenly dawned upon him that here was his chance to get even with his camp-mates. He racked his brain for some practical prank he might play on them, finally he went out, returned in a few minutes and si- lently, with a satisfied smile on his face, he went back to bed. The next morning, the time to get up having arrived, general consternation reigned in campg Shorty found that where his pants used to be, those of Stretch now wereg where Spa- ghetti's used to be those of Fatty could be foundg where the latter's shirt used to hang the one belonging to Skinny had taken its place, besides these time-saving devices there was the record breaker in the form of a big heap of shoes and stockings thrown together "pell-mell." Philly got out of bed, looked at the turmoil and smiled. The boys looked at him, caught the meaning of his smile and laughed good-humoredly. 50 - -- T- 1 "" :xr-'zrfz Percy Philander Philicuddy glad of Philly's resurrection. By the time the boys were ready for work the farmers had arrived to inquire about the cause of the delayg this matter was quickly explained, Philly going with his farmer when the latter returned home. This day he returned later than usual, having worked over timeg when he returned to camp, however, he immediately we11t to bed, too tired even to answer to the question whether some books and a manicuring set which had been found in the nearby field be- longed to him. In about two weeks' time Percy Philander had gained the respect of the boys in campg in two weeks more he had gained their admiration because he had become as good as their best. When camp broke up the boys were genuinely sorry to part with Philly and this feeling was naturalg when he got on the train which was to take him home, Philly was sent off with "G'by, Hercules" or "S'long, Philly." When Philly arrived home his mother started back aghastg looking at his sunburned face she wanted to know why he had not used some cold cream. His horny hands made the good wo- man inquire as to what had become of his manicuring set, and why he had not used "Cleana"g for answer he lifted her off the ground, kissed her, put her back on firm footing and Percy Philander Philieuddy, no longer an exponent of the uses of cos- metics, Eau de Cologne, manicuring sets and the like, but now a man, walked smilingly out of the room. In the fall, we find him playing on the High School football team, imbued with that spirit, the spirit to succeed. MATIIIEU PRVOUJANSKY, June '19. 51 A Snlhiwn liragrr 1.

Rene s'etait arrete au milieu d'une phrase parceque cet eelat de rire lui rappelait de bien cruels souveniers.

La scene de septembre 1914 se passait de nouveau devant les yeux etincclants de Rene. Il savait maintenant ou il avait entendu cet eclat de rire. Soudainement, comme un tigre en furie, il se jeta a la gorge de son malfaiteur qui fut trop stupefait pour offrir aueune resistance.

His M " I' present quarters in the big, sunny hospital Q, ' 6 had failed to remove this impression. He had been wounded, and the loss of a It - A " great deal of blood had weakened him severely. And now this depression, this mental weariness that was begin- ning to tell on his physical being. Contrary to the usual con- duct of youth, for he was young, he did not react to his illness with that everlastingly talked of "elasticity of youth". His was a passive attitude. He took his meals and medicine regularly, and followed the regular routine like a machine. Yet he made no effort to recover. He sat in his bed and all day stared moodi- ly into space. Nothing interested, nothing diverted him. A young surgeon, new to war's ways, was one day put in charge of the soldier's ward. He soon acquainted himself with the latter 's case and tried, in vain, to help him. What aid he did render was not of his own planning, however, but the result of an accident. He was one day walking past the soldicr's bed when an exclamation arrested him. "What,s that?"-the sol- dier was gazing fixedly at the blazing red cover of a book that was sticking out from the surgeon 's pocket. HWhy, the Morris Annual", was the instinctive reply. "The Annual! why, I come from Morris"-the emotionless face of the man in the bed lit up, "Do you?" , "Sure, June 15" "My class is that of June 'l7" "Well, this is the '18 Annual. Would you like to see it?" "Would I! ! !" the soldier's eyes were sparkling, his face animateld as if new blood had been infused into his veins, "Woul I?" He seized the book and the surgeon looking on felt a great hope rising within him. He heard a chuckle, a laugh, and then as much of a roar as a man on the road to death could give. The problem was solved. The soldier had needed a touch of home, and he had got it. He was rejuvenated, filled with new life. The sight of that book had brought back old visions. Old hopes were his, old joys. Such memories intensified his desire to live, to be back again in old scenes, amid well-known surroundings. His hopes, his sorrows, all the sentiments of his life were re- 54 Memories bor11. He lived over past ineidents :football games, baseball, the first exciting M. O. elections, his own eleetion as elass "Rep.", his graduation, the class daneeg he recalled the faculty, Mr. Den- bigh. Now his niind was crowded with nieinories. And the surgeon fed him from his slender stock of books as he would have fed an invalid ehoiee food. And lo! this was the ehoieest food of all, for the invalid prospered, his pessixnisln gone. He took a new, more eheerful hold on life and lived to fight in more great battles. Thus, the ANNUAL sent out by the Wal'-WV0l'k Connnittee fulfilled its destiny. GREGORY Pmoos.

Joe Travers, Private of the A. E. F., stuck his hands in his pockets, clicked his heels and stalked off. Following in his wake went "Bink" Lander, faithful and inseparable buddy. Halfway up the path leading to the sleeping quarters he halted, retraced his steps and spoke again, HI'm a dependin' on yuh to help me out after- wards." Corporal William Rand looked at the man facing him, then, slowly "Just how're you going to get even with the Sergeant?" Contemptuously the other looked at him. "Listen, Bill, you 're de only one in dis comp 'ny dat knows what I was in the U. S. 'Kill or be killed' dat's what I was brung up on. And they 's lots of Ways to do de trick." Rand, man of breeding and good education, was shocked at the rawness of the affair and the extent to which it had been carried. Of course, Travers was in a hot temper and his petty grievances against Sergeant Gray loomed large. There was no telling-. He, Rand, must be cautious and wary. "Well, Joe, it's risky and court-martial isn't a pretty thing to run up against. Wait! My idea is better. You know, we only have a few more days in Bigny before we get shipped to Brest and then home. The journey across is long, plenty of opportunity, a dark night, a gentle but firm push, a gurgle, a single ripple and-no suspicion. How 's that?" "Great," Joe gazed upon him with reverence. Bill breathed a sigh of relief-well, so far so good. He would think of the rest the next day. But the next day and subsequent days found the Whole regiment's plans changed and the citv of Brest soon harbored them. It was not until the men were being assigned to transports that he had occasion to re- member the life of one, Sergeant Ernest Gray, was in jeopardy. He heard his officer call out, "Private Travers, Transport Mau- retania. Corporal Rand, Transport American." Too late, he would not even be on the same boat as Joe, nothing would stop him now-nothing. How could he get word to Gray-he eouldn't-besides the consequences to Joe and the complications. Good Lord-he stopped short. He heard the name of Sergeant Gray called-. Ha! Ha! What a fool to wor- ry! He might have known the army had a way of its own. Joe! He could see his crestfallen face.

SYLYIA BIANN, ,19 59 Clllpilh anh Stubmt H i HERE man had fought with winter 's icy blast, And raised huge toppling masses, where the past Had bowed its lovely head, and now was gray, 1-Where iron-handed toil was lord, and day, The bounteous day, crept servile, sad. un- seen, VVhere need had swallowed all, and still was leang There little Agnes lived, and loved, and smiled, And broke the dismal gloom in laughter wild. To her the sunbeams glistened not in vain, That shone and cheered her through the gentle rain, All Nature 's trodden beauty blossomed fair ' And fresh within her youthful heart, the tare Had not been sown 'mid thoughtful merriment, The very minds with labor 's ruin spent To her seemed brightened with the deathless bloom Of what they hid in dreary, wretched tomb, The mournful buildings were the dear abode Where tender kindness dwelt, and patience glowed, The sooty street seemed all a verdant bower- Who heeds the stem when 'raptured at the flower? So, while the light was still in Heaven 's blue, Sweet Agnes saw with clear, unshaded view, Now carefree as a riplet on the wave, Now coy and blushing, now, when guided, grave, But in a moment bubbling oler again VVith harmless mischief-and with love for men, A golden leaf that danced on autumn's floor, That whirled, and paused, and that the whirlwind bore Around and up, and frolicked with, was she- Yet maiden ever in her childish glee. Emotion, though, is but a changeful cloud That catches dreamers, eyes, and darks the crowd, So Agnes, gladness passed, and, slowly, night With cautious step, approached, and dimmed her sight, 60 Child and Student For black and white--a blessing, yea, but curse, Unwatched, to trustful youth and truth, whose hearse It drapes-this led her random thoughts to see, To search, while strong and reckless will blew free, The good was lost, the faults of men were plain, In pessimism was drowned the spring-time strain. And guileless Agnes, standing at the prow, Gazed in the troubled deep, or aged her brow And gazed at fiercer storms within, or stared, Confounded, in the awful din, while flared The ceaseless tempest. Thus her spirit fled To pathless blackness, where the girl seemed dead, Or palled, at least, beneath the mourner's veil- Bleak facts and fear make faney's creatures pale. The form once lithe and restless, now was tame, And oft returned too soon to whence it came. So Agnes, viewing earth alone, forgot That living stars in joy and grief fail not, A hermit in her home, with infant hand, She dug for treasures hid in barren land, In wisdom's realm. But broodings disappeared When slender, shady, still, a figure neared, It sprang, alas, from tireless efforts past, A comrade, sent to help her learn at last- So Agnes thought, and heard, or thought she heard, A voieeless voice, that spoke, but said no word, Yet told how much the tongues of mortals shape, What useless counterfeit, that ought escape No prattling lips, lest, turned to use, it make A friendship worthless, of achievement shake: It told how fair the traitor 's face might be, How monsters writhed beneath a peaceful sea, And how the rose's tender petals fell At slightest gale, of thorny heart to tell. More dreamy tones, and softer, had replied When Agnes spaded books, and some had sighed, Though rumbling noise had rolled to sombre calm, A seldom hope had spread a pleasing balm. But one hot tear can drown the bright and gay, , 61 Child and Student And one hot tear can comfort burn away, So Agnes, listening, heard and shook Her head, the stranger 's warning sage she took As truth entire, its wisdom seemed to reign O'er all she'd sought, 'twas hers, but pain, A plaguing sense of wrongs, possessed her, where She 'd know, and master thus, earth, sky and air. Meanwhile the struggling toilers droopedg their sun Was gone from sight, the impulse was as one To all, to loose the fretting snares that bound The life and warmth of striving worlds around. The first to find where Agnes sat in night A playmate was, a ragged, friendless mite, Ill-fated child, in godless shanty born, Untaught, unknowing, selfish, lone, forlorn, She joyed in mud and slime, till Agnes' grace And native kindness had upturned her face. And oft, like feathers of the time-flow'r blown, Had Agnes' artless virtues lit and grown On that poor soil, their golden heads had made A purer joy,.but now the empty shade Had shriveled, shrunk and swallowed all, and she The helpless prey of evil, could but see One loyal need, to seek her mate, and went With yearning torn, with loud disinterest rent. But quick the shadow stranger slipped between. And only Agne saw, her look was keen That one should tempt her from her worthy bliss To play, the stranger 's words were not amissg The girl she'd raised would try to drag her down. And Agnes drove her comrade with a frown, Instead of gentle words her want to feed, She gave contempt, and made the child a weed To breathe pollution, drove her coldly back, To wither there, and fall, where all was black. And others came. The maiden, once so sweet, Saw still the stranger form and still would greet Their honest, longing souls with strong distrust, 62 Child and S tudeut S0 off they turned. To strife 's consuming lust, Her eyes relented not. her will was elear. But where was aught her prisoned heart to eheer? At last, from burdens never eased, There stole Her guide, whose health and strength had been the toll To 'seape the death of soul, but peaee within llluinined all where beauty's eharni had been, Her pity read unhappy Agnes' mind, Her insfinef said, " ller seareh has made her blind. She sees but sordid error and despair, And endless study, hopeless flames that flaref' She spoke, K'The little birdlings fear the owl, And who eau bear to bide repulsive seowl? The smiles of love a Constant glory shed, And east a halo 'round the Weary head. The day is ehildhood's right, but lfleavenls lights Are Watching where The monster trouble frights, No crime, no sobs. ean quench the godly spark, So seek, and fan it sinouldering low and dark: Your books, indeed, should help: they must not elaim Your self. instead of aiding higher aim: Gaze full above, and never yield To eareg Disfrusf brings woful sighs, that love eould spare." And Agnes, rapt in sober joy alone, Looked upg the shadow fled: 'lwas but her own. HELEN M. BIATZKE, '20 'Nun 1.-vw" 63 ues", fi H9999 M IIE night was wonderful, elear and starry and 11, warm. A full moon shone down the broad . - , country road, and the trees on either side east long, black shadows on the scattered country houses along the way. Down the street came the rays of an auto lamp. Chug ..... ehug ..... went the motor and died down. The little runabout came to a stop and out jumped a young man, well- groomed and dressed. 'He walked quickly for fifty feet and then stopped in front of a pretty country house which was entirely dark but for a tiny stream of light that Came from a window near the rear. The young man stole cautiously along the wall until he came to the lighted window. There he stopped and knocked ..... silence. Then the window was raised and out popped the head of a girl, somewhat frightened. 4' 'S only me, Peg," came a whisper. 'CI must see you at once. Let me inf' ' "You! And at this hour! How can I?" 4 "But, Peg, I must speak to you." "NVell, all right, go 'round to the baek door." The little door opened softly and the stranger glided in. Once inside he gave vent to his feelings. p t'Now, Peggy," he began, 'ADO you know I really ought not to be running after you after all that happened last week, but to tell the truth, I can't stand it any longer. There you have it. I want you to forgive and forget. Will you? I want you to eome with me. I need you so ..... . If you only knew what a life I am leading sinee you left. I tell you this can 't go on any longer." , "But,'? began the girl, 'AI ean't leave them you knowf' and she pointed toward the ceiling. "Oh, they can do without you better than I can. I tell you again I ean't live without you. I can 't eat, I ean't sleep, I eanlt do a thing. At home, at business, morning, noon and night, you are in my thoughts. You shall have every thing your heart desires. Just do come and you 'll never regret itf' No answer. But a glance convinced him that his pleadings had not been al- together in vain, for on her face, seeming so immensely attrac- tive to him, yet not at all striking to any one else, there were signs of relenting. Beads of perspiration stood out on his fore- 64 3 . yt. . V- I , ' e I V , W " W 'W "f.u1:wzv- ' 'vrrrfft W ' 'Q f ' F v , 1 'bfi' A ' Peggy head. And then a quavering "Yes" .....

I've got the car waitingdown the strcetg just get your valise. Oh, hurry, hurry, Peg, or something may go wrong." Ten minutes later they stole out hand in hand. She was heavily veiled and in a traveling coat and he was carrying the valise. They ran the distance to the car, jumped in, and were off. Nothing had gone wrong and they were safe. 1 IK 1 Q In the little house where this somewhat strange scene had taken place, there descended the following morning an elderly lady in bathrobe and slippers, who seemed worried and excited. t'Margaret--Margaret," she called, but to no avail. She hurried from room to room calling, and becoming more ex- cited every minute. At last she went into the kitchen. On the table was a note. Eagerly she took it up, opened it and read: "Dear Missus Ensworth- P As you have allnthe time been very good to me, I shure am sorry to be a'leavin' you, fur I liked you very much.

While plugging away late that evening, it seems, Home study carried Uarry to the land of sweet dreams. There was Morris High School in Nineteen twenty- five, The same old institution, but a trifle more alive. Instead of Tracy orchestra, we find the famous Jazz, Playing "Morris High School" like Al J olsonls Raz-me-Taz. After much consideration, ruled the Board of Education That more useful than Oration is the study, Syncopation. "Out of every recitation drop old-fashioned hesitationg The rising generation should require no preparation." Other ancient customs were going very fast Regents, like Oration, were a relic of the past. Chemistry experiments and Trigonometry Left the field abandoned, with friend Geometry- Homework was forbidden, and Regent's readings too, Mid-terms merely optional and zeros very few. Since Vogue no longer called for waltzing, Hesitation diedg Seniors, growing reckless, did the "Graduation Glide." Lunch was served with music in famous Molbeck Hall, Then for recreation, dancing was required of all. Frail floors began to creak 'neath tissue-paper shoes, As merry students twirled around to the tune 'of the "Basement Blues." But dancing only lasted till the bell rang out at two. They sounded it so violently that even Carry knew 66 Would That It 1 Were 'Twas far too late to cram on long midnight reviewsg Her fate to sing :mother term, those old "R ' cgi ctful Blues.

So spoke a famous novelist of a town buried in self-satisfaction, little vices and utter provincialism. The stern word of the war came to it, spoke to our human nature, so sensitive to the call for heroism. The town answered, and its common men, its failures, its disap- pointed, tired women, gave it glory, a thrilling heart-beat, vision it had always lacked, the new meaning of the common life. Did you, readers of the Annual, think once upon a time, that Mor- ris, or the Bronx, or the City might feel in some slight degree the touch of war, but that real Reconstruction was a vital event for some place nearer the heart of things, not really for us? And did you feel some surprise as in your look around, you saw outlines change and foundations move? The dust of old things is all around us. More things than thrones are shaking-narrow views, national isolation, ineffective education, industrial ty- ranny. "Since I left the army," said a Morris lad to me the other day. Oh my boy, your work in the ranks has created a work of peace to do, and that right soon- It is a coincidence that our school rounded out twenty years before war activities gave it new direction. The men and wo- men who gave it the early moulding worked for thorough scholarship and honest character, believing in certain results. VVho will deny that five hundred boys in the service and the more than five hundred girls in multiform work at home proved such faith was justified? We were in the drift ,of the twenti- eth century when individual promotions broke from the custom of the past. Once that seemed only a fine dream, impossible for a great city high school to realize. A, B, and C, made it a sad muss at first, and days passed before the tangle of individ- ual preferences was undone, or before D got through changing his mind. All this did truly happen. Naturally elasticity of programs resulted. English of course had thc right of way- not only that all must use the brave old tongue with respect and love, but that with so tempered a weapon and with a mind to match and direct it, we may do the great, yes, the impossible tasks in the world. History, forsaking its old handmaid, posi- tion, stepping forward as an indispensable interpreter of the modern world, began to come to its own. The science courses grew in number, the language courses have a value for to-day, or else they die, the domestic arts stand now in an honored place, and commerce is now studied in the city of commerce. 80 In NEWS? ,,1,,,,,,4,,n,5,,,...L,, ,. ,.., w-'! WUWM Born Out of the Past These were the ways in which the new Morris was shaping. At the same time, we, like most of the peaceable world, were blind to other existing conditions, and deaf to certain great needs. We were composed, years and years ago. of many dif- ferent racial stocks, as far from each other, almost, as the poles. This city gave the girl and boy what they asked for, gave and gave-and they took all they could naturally. We, easy leaders, neglected to fuse all in a white passion of understanding and service to the country, whose devotion and friendliness had made such education possible. The spiritual price of great schools like Morris and Washington Irving and Clinton should have been counted and measured, year by year. Small wonder that one class on its fifth anniversary said, "What is the school going to do for us? "That which has been can never be again," thank God, un- less we let these momentous years pass unheeded. So our first task of reconstruction in the school, as in the nation, will be an evident unifying of sympathy, of unpredjudiced spirit in us all. This will be harmless propaganda, when we make selfish and narrow and tame acts so unpopular that they will die fruit- less. Carping criticism will have no place, unloving gossip will stifle. Americanism, open, exulting, with truth, and without bombast will dominate. No fear of a free teaeherls speaking his mind, no suspicion of hypocrisy in a graduate's pledge, so clear and enthusiastic will be our national devotion. That time is coming as sure as the day. And what if we could not learn by the Liberty Loan cam- paigns and by all our war eagerness to help how always to work together, of What value to the future would it be? There is always a great cause ready for the finding. The war has been trying to teach us that even our few good things are in trust for the worldls needs. We know that children suffer, that men and women by thousands never have a chance, that when our heartstrings harden, they die. The land of liberty must be kept a land of opportunityf Americans by the million, in daily gen- erous intercourse must make this land one of orderly progres- sive life, safe from the carnage of a violent revolution. Let it not be said that America has not even tried democracy a11d equality when her time of testing and danger shall arrive again. So with your resources of money, time and energy when the next call for workers comes. 77 81 Born Out of the Past 'tRejoice that man is hurled ' From change to change unceasingly, His soul's wings never furled." - Girls and women in especial, need the lesson of the war organization. Supplementing their individualism, so deeply rooted. is the 11ew co-operation. Many more must be taught it by you and me in these new days. And so Morris, reconstructed, has her mission in the Bronx. Unified, she must teach unity. Americanized, she must make men Americans in spirit and in truth, and must lead in works of Amerieanism. As the camps broke down class distinctions, so let swiftly increasing co-operation in industry and in religion give the lie to class hatreds. As America never knew feudalism or militarism or caste, so she need never know foreign remedies for them. She will in patriotism remedy her own ills. Gener- ous. she must spend and be spent. Progressive and democratic herself, she must make reaction, standpatism and wild theories of revolution so ridiculous and unworthy as to have no friends. With her learning truly alive, we, her people, will translate books into action, and embody our theories in a borough both beautiful and wise-a proud part of no mean city. A. B- B.

Many boys and girls offered their services and two groups of boys were sent, one to Cortland and Tompkins Counties under the supervision of Mr. Frank G. Trapp and one to Putnam and Dutchess Counties under the supervision of Mr. Fred. C. White. These soldiers of the soil helped win the war. They en- dured homesickness, long hours and hard work. One of them, Wilbur I-Iogel, enlisted in the Signal Corps and saw service in France. f f 'Wil The following is a partial list of those who completed at least twelve weeks of satisfactory service. The star indicates two years of satisfactory service. A large number of other Morris boys and girls spent the summer vacation Working on farms or in berry-picking camps. The following letter is typical as showing the change in the attitude of the farmers. Brewster, N. Y. Mr. Fred. C. White, Dear Sir : Now the harvest days are over and also the war, with a heart full of thanksgiving for the wonderful mercies God in his Infinite wisdom has seen fit to bestow upon this country of ours, I feel it my duty to extend to you my thanks for the part you have taken in helping solve the help problem in raising and se- curing our crops. You will recall the attitude I assumed when you approached me as Master of our Gang in 1917 in regard to the employing of school boys on our farms. I was ve1'y skep- tical in fact, discouraged the proposition. This spring when you asked me to assist in placing boys I was so favorably im- pressed with their work of the previous year that I gladly gave you aid. And it gives me pleasure to have been able to help you place some of the boys, as in nearly every instance they gave satisfaction. But permit me to add that I believe without a competent person to supervise, to advise, to encourage, to ad- just any difference between employer and employed the scheme would have been an absolute failure. With best wishes I am sincerely yours E. F.

When school opened the following September, the first contingent of drafted men from this district had farewell exercises in our auditorium. As we saw several of our own graduates in the group, some of us felt that they were like our own brothers, and thereupon knitting for Morris boys was begun. Miss Bogart taught many knitters and sent off Christmasy boxes to as many boys as could be reached. Mem- bers of the Alumni Association helped us with money, but espec- ially with work. Miss Ames and Miss Story collected goodies and gifts through the autumn and winter to gladden homesick boys in camp. But all these activities required money, and so our weekly collections were instituted and continued until Dec- ember 1918, giving us means to buy necessary materials- In June 1917, the Morris Organization raised money for an ambulance that was bought and sent to France the next winter. In November 1918 we decided to raise nine hundred dollars to be added to money in our treasury for the purchase of another ambulance to be used in the city. The sum was to be given in two weekly collections and more than enough was provided. The ambulance cost 351950. . Here are some figures:- The class collections from November 14, 1917 to December 1918 amounted to ................................ 954176.31 This includes several special collections from our annexes.

Morris War Work booties, 14 dresses, 600 housewives, 641 comfort kits, 82 hand- kerchiefs, and many miscellaneous articles. We have sent boxes of knitted garments to 222 Morris boys in service and other gift boxes to the number of 139. Out of the war, monstrously wicked and wholly horrible as it was, sprang many beautiful flowers, patriotism, unselfish- ness, pity, service, enthusiasm, idealism, and of them all Morris has received her share. The school of to-day is very different from that of April, 1917. We have learned that we have, even here, a duty and an opportunity to perform public service by selling and buying bonds, by knitting, by giving money, and as we have served our country we have felt an ever increasing love for her. We have broadened our interests and sympathies to relieve the suffering children in Belgium, France and far- away Armenia. We have learned something of the joy of regu- lar giving, and some of us have felt most opulent when we have given most. We have seen how much can be accomplished by unity of purpose and effort. We have felt the thrill of having our own Morris boys to work for, to write to, and to hear from, to exult over when the news was good, to mourn for when nothing was left but their precious memory. O Morris, may you never forget what dignity the War has given you. J. ACKERLY. i l I , '86 Uhr Ehirh anh Efnurthijiihrrtg linen With the same spirit of unity and loyalty, which had been taught by the Second Liberty Loan Drive, the teachers and pupils of Morris far surpassed their former record in the Third and Fourth Drives. As in the Second Drive, the boys were divided into canvassing teams, each headed by a teacher. These teams went out canvassing in the 62d Precinct- They combed the district fine, and came away with a large total. Two teams were formed, headed by Miss Hartley and Mr. Elkan. These teams went to the theaters, railway-stations and hotels, everywhere there was a chance of selling a bond, and did a great deal to swell our total. But the real work was that done by the classes. Competi- tion was keen. There were big bulletins, o11e for each class, placed down in the first floor corridor and on these the daily record of sales was entered. When the class had sold a bond for each member in it, there was a little flag placed on top of the bulletin. As the sales went on there were practically no classes without its little flag and "pink ticket". In the Third Loan Miss Hartley "camped out on Wall Street for two hoursl' and secured a bond of 350,000 This brought our total in the Third Drive up to s1,068,750. The number of subscribers was 9,704. In the Fourth Loan, due to the various other organizations canvassing, our total was not quite so high. Nevertheless, we managed to come in fourth place among the city schools, selling S977,100 worth of bonds. In this drive 8,193 people bought bonds through the school- For our work in the loan we were awarded a banner. This was presented to the Inwood Annex for its notable work. So it is that with an increased spirit of service and loyalty which has been taught us by these drives that a greater desire to "roll up the biggest total ever" in the Fifth and last Drive fills our hearts.

War Savings Stamps played no little part in the successful termination of the war.Through them, in part, all America was aflame with a spirit of self-sacrifice and willingness to cooperate. Who ever would have thought that the wasteful America of pre- war days, when people only gloried in extravagance, would have become the "Hooverized" America of today-the war-saving America? It was not only the millions that the big business men subscribed in Liberty Bonds but also the pennies the chil- dren zealously saved for Thrift Stamps that helped to end the great catastrophe and restore peace upon the earth again. We must remember it is oft-times the big little things that count. We, in Morris, were not idle, as readily as our boys took up their guns so we took up the cry, "If you can't carry a bay- onet, carry a QW. S. SJ button." What greater gratification could we desire than that we were the real partners of Uncle Sam, enlisted in Government service? The old proverb HA Penny Saved is a penny earned" has been and still is our slogan. And in the instance of the War Savings Stamp campaign it has had full sway. Every opportunity is given to the students of Morris to purchase stamps- Through the untiring and unceas- ing efforts of Mr. Gaylor stamps are on sale at convenient times and places. Through this experience We have really worked more for the principle of establishing the habit of thrift in the school than for a great sale of stamps. Even at that our showing is not poor. We had a goodly share in the 5395382 which the New York High Schools raised during the five months beginning January 1918 and ending May 1918. By June of the same year, Morris registered a sale of War Saving and Thrift Stamps amounting to S40,029. NVe have now increased that by 310,000 and we are "still going strong". Societies were formed in most of the classes for the carrying out of this work effectively and for the' general encouragement of the student body toward thrift- There were more than 300 of these clubs in Morris High School, including the Annexes, with a total membership of 3,475 students. These societies re- ceived engrossed certificates of affiliation with the National War Savings Committee. The names were very interesting and sug- gestive of the great spirit which caused their organization. There were the "Carry On", 4'All American, HK. K. K.', CKill the Kaiser Klubj "Patriae Causan, "E Pluribus Unum", "Vie- tory Bank", 'fWilson", "Pershing Backers" and many others. 88 War Savings Stamps Through these clubs arrangements were made for the purchase of stamps even 011 the installment plan- The result of the drive during the week of March 18, 1918 is an example of the school 's enthusiasm and spirit of coopera- tion i11 this patriotic work. The number of 85.00 War Saving Stamps ordered on postal cards which were placed in the hands of the pupils on March 18 was 1314 and the number of 5.25 Thrift Stamps ordered in the same way was 7110. The total value of the stamps thus ordered was 87192. And this was the work of one week! It is not only important in the fact that the amount raised is a considerably large sum, but that through the effort and infiuence of the children the new-found idea of thrift and economy was spread throughout their home circles and later to their friends. This thrift spirit certainly was de- sirable propagandag it could not but be contagious because of the intense interest shown by the school boys and girls in both the elementary and high schools- Aside from patriotic reasons it was worth our work and that of the other schools to receive the congratulatory telegram from Secretary McAdoo, in which he expressed, in part, his "Deepest appreciation of the splendid patriotic work in this most impor- tant thrift movementn. These commendations were reiterated and emphasized by Mr. Frederic Allen, the State Director for Greater New York and Dr. William O'Shea, the District Super- intendant in charge of War Service. While we, the students, may well be proud of our war work record, while we may display our Thrift and War Savings Cards, and Liberty Bonds with confident pleasure and satisfaction, it must not be forgotten that we have gone but half-way. Patriot- ism spurred us to travel down the road to meet the demands of war, now we must travel back again to peace. Let us not lessen our patriotism or weaken our strength or slacken our pace. Re- member "well begun is half done" and let us finish the task with the same zeal and vigor as that with which we began- 89 Uhr illurria Szruirr Magus "The aim of the Morris Service League shall be to promote honorable conduct and the spirit of service throughout the school." We feel, that never before have we so well accom- plished our purpose as during the past year. The field of our endeavor has been far more extensive than hitherto. Our suc- cessful drives for comforts for our wounded me11 in the base hospitals, show how well we fullilled each undertaking. But our school duties, as well, have grown. Before now, our chief in- terests lay in the morning session, where we performed stair- case, office, library, lunch-room and other duties. Now, in addi- tion the afternoon session is receiving much of our attention. Many of the League members have already served as substitutes in the absence of afternoon teachers- But the "Big Brother and Sister Movement" is our great accomplishment. It is briefly explained as follows: One Service League member has, at the beginning of the term been assigned to every freshman class. He acts as adviser and friend to this classy procures help for the students from among his fellow League members, who regularly coach the Freshmen in all subjects in the basement, during the sixth period. He, in general, tries to make them realize the best in the life of Morris. To Mr. Peabody and Mr. Foster, and the other members of the teachers' committee, We owe much of our success- Their excellent advice and help have guided us through the most diffi- cult or our undertakings.

Most of our members have taken advantage of their opportunity, and can trace the begin- ning of very precious friendships back to the Alacris. Vile also try in our programs to give an interesting and instructive time to our members, and to teach them how to debate, by giving them frequent practice in it. lt is certainly a pleasure, after the grinding routine of school work, to be able to come to a meeting every Friday morning or afternoon, and feel that we are together to aid one another and ourselves, and to spend an enjoyable and productive time. The club owes the great part of its success to its loyal censor, Dr. ltoss, who has remained with it through thick and thing and we desire to thank him heartily for it. though we know that these few words cannot begin to approximate our appre- ciation of his efforts.

With perseverance she has struggled to maintain her foot-hold and has been repaid for her efforts in keeping the Classic lamp burning bright. In December 1915, the Academia was formed, with the pur- pose of fostering interest in Roman and Greek Life, history, art, and literature, to all of which we are indebted for our pres- ent civilization. During the past year, a Greek and a Roman house were built by the members, under the direction of Dr. Ruhl. In March 1918, the club gave a banquet, conducted in true Roman fashion- Several plays were given in Latin, first at open meetings, and then by request, in the Freshman Assem- bly. This term, the Academia heartily invites all interested to attend its meetings and to further its good Work. Any student taking third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth term Latin is eligible for membership. ' D OFFICERS Feb. to June Sept. 1918-Jan 1919 ESTELLA RAPHAEL ....... President ......

Another of its achievements was the after- noon of music and drama given to the students of the other city high schools. The plays for this occasion were "Le Testament de Madame Patural" and "Le Partage du Giteaun. So sue- cessful were these comedies, that the club intends to give others this term.- Our meetings are conducted in French.

The squad was organized by Mr- James E. Peabody, who had had considerable experience in printing. The original out- Ht consisted of a second hand press and type, bought at a cost of approximately 83000, appropriated from the "Annual Fund". Boys were secured by calling for volunteers, who were trained in the work until they could, to a great extent, carry on the work by themselves. So far as we know this was the first printing office estab- lished in any of the general high schools of the city of New York. The experiment was so successful that after a few years the city authorities purchased for the school a Chandler and Price 10" x15" press, run by electric motor, a paper cutter, a generous supply of type and other materials, at a cost of some- thing over a thousand dollars. Volunteers apply to the censor and have their records in- vestigated- If they show a desire to serve and a scholarship of not lower than 75? in their prepared subjects, they are admit- ted on probation. For a whole term the volunteer serves as an apprentice or "printer's devil", doing all the dirty work such as cleaning and oiling the press, and helping the printers in general. Meanwhile, he is taught some of the rudiments of printing by the older members. During this period of proba- tion he must prove his willingness to serve, his ability to main- tain his scholarship while giving time to the printing squad. He becomes a regular member when unanimously elected by the squad members. Oiiicers and Members for last two terms were as follows: Feb.-June '18 Sept.-Feb. '18 SAUI4 DVORKIN ..........

That the club has accomplished its purpose is evidenced by the fact that nearly every bulletin board in the school is covered with the results of its work. Last term two interesting poster contests were heldg one under the auspices of the Board of Education on The Preven- tion of Tuberculosis and another under the direction of the Poster Club on the subject of Reconstruction. In the first con- test the three prizes were awarded to Miss Lipshitz, B. Benson and N- Lukin. The winners of the second contest were Miss Lipschitz, C'Connell and Kirchman. It is to Miss Ames, our energetic censor, and to Miss Mussey that the success of the club is due. Our Junior Division is progressing finely in learning how to draw both figures and objects and to make good posters. OFFICERS Sept. 1918-Jan. 1919 Feb. 1919-June 1919 NATHAN LUKIN .........

If there were to be an honor list we would put Coach Kranz at the head of the list- His knowledge of the game and the team's trust in him were big factors in the season's success.

The Sub-Target Gun has recently been repaired and put into opera- tion so that practice in the Gun Room is now going on daily. On Saturday morning the club, availing itself of the kindness of the officers of the 2nd Field Artillery, practices on the Rifie Range. A number of our members i.e, Fleming, Borchers, Moyckcl, Bernstein, and Rowland went to the Range at Peekskill and gave a very good account of themselves in the Inter-Scholastic Cham- pionship Shoot- Wc regret that we can no longer count on the services of Dr. Smith, who has been the faithful coach and adviser of the Rifle Club for many years. We welcome Mr. Birnbaum as his successor and look forward to a brilliant future. 1918. OFFICERS 1919. GORDON ROWLAND ....... President .... . . . AUGUST Bonormns REGINALD FLEMING .....

For the first time in many years the soccer team received lA1vI7S77. Too much credit can not be given to coach Sidney Kranz and Manager Stanley Robinson for their untiring efforts to produce a championship team. Special mention must be given to Capt.

Captain Cinador and "Bibby" Algasc, the diminutive captain-elect, were the mainstay of the team in doubles, while Kassakove, Lipkowitz, Jacobs and Manager Steig played in the singles. With a veteran team and numerous capable recruits, if ineligibility does not interfere, Morris should Win the title in 1919. Thanks are due to Dr. Ross who coached the team last season, sacrificing his time to help the boys. Algase and Perel- man succeed Cinador and Steig as captain and manager respec- tively. The results of the games were: Morris 2, Horace Mann 3 Morris 3: Evander Childs 2 Morris 55 Townsend Harris 0 Morris 45 Stuyvesant 1 Morris 25 Commerce 3 Morris 55 Curtis 0 Qlrnan-Olnuntrg Umm The season's Cross Country Team in spite of many handi- caps maintained a most admirable morale throughout the season- The team was hit a hard blow by the loss of its captain and fast- est man, Jack Brickman, who was found to be several points shy in eligibility. ' I But the prospects for next season are bright. A nucleus of six veterans will be left, among them "Little Galburtn, who gives promise of being a worthy successor to his brother.

Manager "Eddie Fine" succeeded in finding a coach in the person of Mr. Conn. He immediately called the boys together and arranged for practice- Moe Cohen was appointed captain and Jerome Newman, assistant manager. It didn 't take Fine very long to arrange our schedule of games, so the season will be quite an active' one. Our coach thinks we have a dandy team and hopes to be able to carry off the championship of New York City. We practice every Monday. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, at Crotona Park. Come around to watch us play. The teams is : Pitcher-Scoville Short-Heder Catcher-Caulway Center-Thompson Ist Base-Goldfarb Left-Schwartzman 2nd Base-Steinberg 3rd Base-Cohen Right-Kaminsky Glrark Athlrttrz The current track year, 1918-1919, found the team still measuring stride with ,the preceding track teams. In the year 1918 the track team scored 85 points, and in the indoor season of 1919, 35 points. During the season of 1918 our team cap- tured a national interscholastic championship at the Central High School games in the 12-lb- put shot. Julius Steinberg was the victor. 'Also in the P. S. A. L. champs we captured three championships, the mile, half-mile and the quarter. Wal- ter Heggins was the mile and half-mile champion while Walter Braunstein was the quarter-mile champion. The team of 1919 also developed three men of champion calibre, H- Deitchman, to whom great credit is due as the 1918 captain, H. Karp, a junior champion, and A. Goodman, track captain for 1919. With the untiring energies of Mr. Strauss, our coach, we hope to continue the remaining season with the greatest success. Captain . . . . . . Al. Goodman Manager . . . ........

Thirty enthusiastic girls are competitors for swimming pins and hope to fulfil the following requirements- I. Push off from shallow end of tank, swim length of tank. II. Dive or jump from deep end, swim several strokes, turn over on back, and swim a 'short distance, turn over on face, finish length of tank. III. Dive and pick up article at the bottom of tank. IV- Swim in good form on back the length of tank. V. Swim out to a person supposedly drowning and strug- gling, approach from rear, grasp by the back of bathing suit or the hair, and swim the remaining length of tank. Swimming tests may be conducted once a month. Bnrkeg 0111111 The Hockey Club has met and will continue to meet at Crotona Park on Wednesday afternoon from two to four o'clock. Miss Nasch coached this team for a while and then Miss Schacker and Miss Gluck, two Morris girls, cooperated i11 coaching the teams for the rest of the season. All girls are welcome to join the club. Easiest mall Gionni Since the P. S- A. L. Rules for Girls forbid interscholastic activities, athletics are naturally confined to games between opposing teams of our ONVII girls. Last term one of Morris' girls acted as coach. An interclass tournament was held at the close of the term. Practice this term will be continued under the direction of Miss Bimstein as soon as a suitable gym is found. Come out on Friday, girls, and forget the worries of the pre- vious five days. 123 SENIOR HOCKEY THE BASKICTBALL TEAM 124 UIIEHIIIIITIJI1 I-rrs., AHU5 And in the beginning there reigned chaos in the Washing- ton lleights section of the City of New York. For there was no high school for the sons and daughters of the people who came there to live- And the inhabitants of the town did pray for a house of learning whither they could send their children, and their prayers were heard. And it came to pass that on the second day of the second month in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and seventeen, our City Fathers did assemble and did declare, 'tTherc shall be a high school on Vifashington Heights". And a high school was set up. And it was called the XVashington Heights Annex of Morris High School. And on that day more than ninety and two hun- dred fair children did gather together to offer thanks for this blessing. New it happened that the school needed wise counsel and proper guidance. And in the land of the Bronx there lived a man named Wheat. He was a wise and upright man- And he was chosen to lead them. And every one rejoiced. And on this same day this man Wheat did take oath before all assembled, to train the boys and girls under his care to the end that they become loyal Americans. And for two whole years these things were taught. And it became known all over the land of Manhattan. From East and from West, from North and from South came boys and girls seeking admission to our home. And we permitted them to enter- VVhich they ,did and are still doing and we .now have nine hundred and moreiwithin our gates. And teachers from the land of Brooklyn which lies across the lflast River. and from the land of The Bronx which lies across the River llarlem, did seek to make their homes with us. So that now we have four and thirty ot' them. And it came to pass that on the seventh day of April in the year ot' our liord 1917 the President of our la11d arose in the l'ongress and spoke thus, "From this day on a. state of war exists between our people and the .Imperial German Government. And it behooves us all men, women, and children, to come to the aid of our country." 125 Washington H 'ts., Annex We heard the cry, and our children witnessed the parting of our soldiers from our shores and they vowed to help them, wihch they did in this wise. They did buy bonds of the first issue for seventy-live thou- sand dollars and more. And of the second issue they did buy more than one hundred thousand- Of the third issue two hun- dred thousand and of the fourth issue more than three hundred thousand. And they bought Thrift Stamps and War Savings Stamps and thus enriched the public treasury with fifteen thousand dollars. They did knit and sew for the Red Cross Of the little they had they did give to the children of the Far East over one hundred dollars. They ,heard the cries of the orphaned babes in France and so sent them money for food and clothing. And it came to pass that the nations of the earth did lay down their arms, and did declare henceforth to live in peace. And our children do again pursue their studies as of old. Four hundred of them do study that they may enter college, and five hundred of them pursue studies that they may go out into the world of business and prosper. And verily doth our school help them, for it teacheth them not only the Arts and the Scien- ces but the laws of Commerce as well- And our children did form clubs whither they could go for leisure. And they were four in number: to wit, Dancing, Swim- ming, Baseball and Dramatics. And verily our home is too small and We do pray by day and by night that we get a 11cw home. And may our prayer be heard and granted. Amen. M. J. LANDSMAN. THE if-if Nh 1 126 ?:iqa?TJyQ. V -S 'Jem " as 'L' ' J-gm .-Alu v bw si? 2411 1 ff' . A f ffq if an law.

Under the direction of the PHILLIPS STUDIO Another World's Record for Speed and Accuracy in Isaac Pitman Shorthand A new Wor1d's Record for Speed and Accuracy in shorthand writing was made on january 18, 1919, by Herman J. Stich and Isaac Pitman, writer, at an official competition of the Isaac Pitman Shorthand NVriters' Association. Mr. Stich took court testimony dictated at the rate of 300 words a minute for five consecutive min- utes and transcribed the same with only two im- material errors. This establishes a new Wor1d's Record for Accuracy of 99970. ln the Stenogrnphei-'s Class for writers under 21 years of age, Joseph van Gelder, in the 160 words fl minute dieta- tion made a Record for Accuracy of 10072, thus QSUIITIISIIIIIQ' n new Wor1d's Record for a writer of his experience.

Less than fifty years ago the educated woman who wanted to be independent was practically limited in her choice of an occu- pation to the time-honored, but poorly paid job, of teaching school. Today the world is her oyster- She may buy or sell, practice or preach, manage or teach, or finance or legislateg the bars which for centuries have restricted her activities to the home and the classroom are now down for good. The perplex- ing question Which confronts her today is not What may I do? but What shall I do? We believe that for the educated young woman who has an attractive personality, the Secretarial Course, as given at Eastman-Gaines, offers the best answer to this ques- tion. Certainly, in all of the elements which go to make one kind of work more desirable than another, the position of Private Secretary stands in a class by itself. The usual environment of a Secretary is healthful a11d attractive, the associations are refined and congenial, the duties, while responsible, are not tax- ing and the salaries paid are generally speaking, higher than those paid to women in any other field of employment. At this point a note of warning should be sounded. Do not jump to the conclusion that you can qualify to be a successful Secretary simply because you like our description of the position and its rewards. It is entirely possible that you would make a fiat failure of the course- Clt may not be good advertising to say this, but it is the truth.D The thing to do is to find out what degree of success or failure you may reasonably anticipate. If you will call and talk with the Principal of Eastman-Gaines he will be glad to give you the benefit of expert advice. Each applicant for Secretarial instruction at Eastman- Gaines is received for one month on probation with the under- standing that at the end of the trial period we will make a frank report, stating what we think can be accomplished and approximately the length of time the course should take.
