Pace Institute is a distinctive private school of profes- sional grade. Day and evening courses in Accountancy and Business Administration prepare high-school grad- uates for immediate earnings in business and Account- ancy. Many graduates who have acquired experience are now treasurers and controllers of large corporations -others are in Accountancy practice. Field trips to the offices and plants of the largest organizations in New York City are a unique characteristic of the work of the Insti- tute. The Registrar is always glad to confer with high-school grad- uates and their parents.

You can begin to use it atter stuclying a few lessons. It does away with positlon and shricling, it is written, vowels and all, like longrhand, with light characters. It is remarkably easy to rgad, and in eoinhined speed and legibility leads all others. Gregg Shorthand is the only system that has produced two worlcl's champions in the Contests of the National Shorthand Reporters' Associa- tion since the Contest was hsgun in 1909. The championship Cup was won by Alht-rt Schneider in l02l, and by Charles Lee Swem in 1923. Mr. Schneider, a New York High School boy, after a competitive examina- tion, was recently appointed oftlvial reporter in the United States House of Repi1'sentarix'es. Insist Upon Learning Gregg Shorthand in whatever school you enter. Gregg is taught in more than 9061: of the schools ui the country, and in more than one hunclrerl publ.e and private schools in the Illetropolitzxn District, 'N THE GREGG PUBLISHING LOMPANY :ss FIFTH AVENUE NEW YORK CITY 0101010111:mgpn1n-401010: 1 -. ,- 1 iz : -1 cn-10:1-znznqnmzJan'-if-101 OLBECK MORRIS HIGH SCHOOL 1 I .

The following are a few definitions and quotations which we believe will prove milestones of success if you will but put them into practice: "THRIFT" "Thrift" is the hope of the nation, and is the panacea for all ills. To oe that one hundred per cent. American we must know the full value of Thrift and practice its theory. "Thrift" is a habit that can and should develop with every Progressive boy and girl. "Thrift" is an instinct of self- preservationg a characteristic which should develop with every progressive individual. "Thrift" not only means the eco- nomical management of moneyg it means that we should think before We spend and safeguard that which we have. By practicing a little self-denial, it means we can participate in the joys of life and still forge ahead for Hrainy days." The Bank of THRIF T CLUB MAIN OFFICE Fifth Ave. at 32nd St. HARLEM BRANCH Madison Ave. at 116th St. of Success The fruit of "Thrift" yields many a fortune, but to practice its theory in- telligently we must first learn how to spend wisely. "Thrift" has many virtues, the great- est of them all is ownership. An owner is an asset to the community, no matter what form of ownership that may be- -a bond, a house, a bank account. It is never too early to practice "Thrift" and remember The Bank of United States is here to help you make that start. A bank account of your own is the first step toward ultimate success. VVhy not start at the right time, and that time-now. Our "Thrift Club" will make it easy for you and lead you on your road to Independence. The Boys and Girls of today are the Men and XVomen of Tomorrow. If you are far-sighted and self-reliant while young, you will be Independent and Successful upon attaining maturity. ,loin the "Thrift Club" today. You can start your own bank account with one dollar. You will be surprised how often your better judgment will tell you "lay aside thosg pennies so foolishly spent," and at the end of the year have a handsome sum in the bank. nited States DEPARTMENT DELANCEY BRANCH 77-79 Delancey Street BRONX BRANCH Southern Boulevard at Freeman St. nioioioisix111xiimini:xioioinioicixoioinifwim 3 ir ioioioinioioi 1 V Seniog' Class---Two ELMER E. BOGART greeting ONCRATULATIONS to tl1e class of June, 1924, on the enterprise and industry shown in carry- ing to completion the project of a Senior 9 Class-book! The publication of this book is almost a pioneer venture at Morris and one that may well become a tradition with future classes. Nothing can be of greater importance to the wel- fare of the Morris High School than the continuing interest and loyalty of her students after graduation. As the successive years pass perhaps no souvenir of undergraduate days will arouse more vivid memories than a Class-hook containing the photographs of each member of the class. Such a publication will be a potent factor in keeping alive the interest not only in one another but also in Nlorris. Those charged with the responsibility of gathering material and editing the contents may take just pride in their achievement. May this undertaking be an onien of successful achievement in the years to come! May each one of you not only win success and happi- ness, but what is better, may each of you deserve them. ELMER E.

Wfe look about to find our- .W Hb?-Elrlxl L ' ' - ggi, in golden memories of the past. Almost in- credulously we see ourselves going from those class- rooms where we have shared together both our sorrows and pleasures. The past we review with mingled feel- ings of joy and sorrow and we turn our gaze to the veiled highways of the future inspired by high am- bitions and earnest hopes. Our chief aim in coming to Morris was to obtain an academic training. For us, however, our high school teachings have served a two-fold purpose. In addition to the regular classroom curriculum we have learned the value and have gained the enjoyment of returning a little something in appreciation of what we have been given. It is to the periods when we have served with the teams or with the clubs that we look back, feeling the true warmth of Morris traditions and the invaluable worth of Morris heritage. During our Senior year we have been welded into a closer personal communication. We have endeavored, while yet in Morris, to strengthen those bonds of friend- ship among ourselves which would keep us united after our graduation.

This term, with the valuable aid of the Faculty and many Senior students not in any way connected witl1 the publication hoard, an edition of a Senior Book has been made possible. The Book Committee thanks Miss Mary E. Knowlton who supervised the entire work. proof-reading all the manuscript. Mr. Samuel M. Look has made the book a possibility by weld- ing together the Annual and the Senior addition. 'To Mr. Kessler we extend appreciation for handling the business end of the publication. Mr. Raymond N. Kellogg and Miss Fmma F. Lowd, who have sponsored Senior activities all the term, were in no small part responsible for the facility in systematiz- ing the work. Miss Freda Schecter and her 'LKnock" Commit- tee have done faithful Work in compiling the knocks, one of the features of the book. In publishing the Senior Book of the Class of ,lune 24. the Committee hopes it has voiced the true Morris sentiment- loyalty, service, and co-operation. It is the earnest hope of every one connected with the publication that the book will be a means of reunion to every member of the class in future Years' THE SENIOR PUBLICATION BOARD.

Most gratifying has been the hearty energy with which the manifold activities have been entered and carried on. No one has lagged. Unexpected victories in some fields have compensated for un- expected defeats in others. Both have been accepted in that same cheerful spirit whose cultivation is one of our chief ob- jects: both have helped to create it. Never has so widely flourished the true spirit of Morris whose keynote is service. Before the school year is out we shall have witnessed the dedication of our improved campus. The story of the accom- plishment of this long-desired event contains what is perhaps the most. notable instance of what Morris has produced. The nec- essity for action grew-and immediately there stepped forth from the great student body those who took the matter in hand and working tirelessly, brought it to a successful conclusion. Vile shall always remember this because it is a part of the great Morris tradition, a tradition of courage a11d action, ever fostered by the spirit of service. And it is to show how this spirit has flourished and spread that we again offer our Annual. We sent forth the call: from all corners of our vast Morris has come the material from which we have moulded our Annual of 1924, It has been a labor of love, we hope it shall be a lasting tribute to our Alma Mater, a part of its tradition, a reminder to those who made it of their efforts. Thus, it is entirely in keeping with the purpose and spirit of this book that it be dedicated to one of the noblest sons of Morris. All his kindness and firmness of character, his patient toil and observation, his wealth of new ideas, his blithe spirits-- in short, the efforts of his lifetime, have been expended gen- erously in order that we might be better prepared for our share of work and joy in this world. It is to John M. Avent, therefore, that this Annual is gratefully dedicated. B.

His earnestness, his cheerfulness, his pleasing personality forcibly impressed me. The years passed, and for a time, our ways parted, but I kept in touch with Mr. Aventis progress through mutual friends. When, therefore, in June 1919, 1 learned that he had been granted a license as First Assistant in ,English in High Schools, I immediately went to the telephone, called him up at the Mor- ris High School and asked him if he would come down to the julia Richman High School to be the Chairman of our English Department. He hesitated for a time as the ties that bound him to Morris were strong, but finally saw the light of duty from my angle and consented to come. The five years that Mr. Avent spent in Julia Richman High School were fruitful ones for his department, for the school as a whole, and for himself. He soon won the respect, admiration, and 1 am tempted to say, the love of his department. Under his guidance the course of study was surveyedg books, forms, methods of procedure were brought before the bar of reason and the wheat sifted from the chaff. His influence soon ex- tended beyond his department and he soon became one of the foremost leaders in our school community. As he gave of his service to others he himself grew in power and leadership. This flowering of his talents was recognized hy his fellow teachers in other schools. In 1921 he was elected president of the New York City Association of Teachers of English and served two terms. During the latter year he was a speaker at the annual meeting of the New York State Teachers Association of English at Syracuse, and at the National Com- mittee of Teachers of English at Chattanooga. 1n 1923 he was elected president of the New York City Association of Heads of English Departments. During this period he also found time and energy to secure a place on the eligible list of mem- bers of the Board of Examiners of the Department of Educa- tion, as the result of a very severe competitive examination. 1 have gone somewhat fully into the honors that came to Mr. Avent during the last 'year OI two because 1 think that his career should be an inspiration to every New York boy and girl. -16- THE MORRIS ANNUAL His was no easy road. Denied by force of circumstances the privilege of entering college, he was compelled to take the shorter Training School course. His pluck, his determination, his indomitable spirit, however, urged him on. On graduation he secured a position i11 an elementary school. Those who think that success comes easily and as a matter of chance should con- sider tl1e youthful John Avent giving a full measure of service to l1is elementary school, and then laboring afternoons, nights, Saturdays and summer vacations to complete a college course. And yet life was not so serious that Mr. Avent forgot how to play. Last summer I spent a day with him at his summer home on tl1e wooded shore of an isolated lake in Maine. Here, he has built a log cabin, ktleared a beach and made a garden. I saw him as the leader of the camp songs, as a diver, a swimmer, a baseball player, as an all round 'good fellow. The Julia Richman High School bears tribute to the Mor- ris High School for its share in inspiring and moulding such a man. It joins with her in doing him honor, and it rejoices with her at his promotion to the principalship of the Curtis High School. MICHAEL H. LUCEY I remember ,lohn Avent as he appeared to me in the early days of Morris 'High School when it was housed in the old building at 157th Street and Third Avenue. He was a strong, healthy boy, full of physical vigor, and interested in 'public affairs to a degree not usual in boys of fourteen years. Had Civics been required of first termers at that time, I am sure he would have been a star pupil in that subject. He had an inquiring mind and was content not when he had udone his home work", but only when he knew the subiect which he was studying. He had opinions and force of character to promote-the measures in which he believed. Un the wall of my home hangs a photograph of his class- 190l. In the center is John Avent, president of the class, whose success Hlls me with pride. GILBERT S., BLAKELY Principal, Fvander Childs High School John McDonough Avent, born in New York City, October 24, 1883, of English, Scotch, Irish ancestry, is a fine example of success achieved by intelligent, persistent effort. His career re- flects credit on his ancestry and training. Morris High School. in which he gained his preparation for college, is highly hon- ored in Mr. Avent's elevation to the principalship of Curtis High School. -17.. 4 1 THE MORRIS ANNUAL From his earliest school days, Mr. Avent wished to become a teacher. His preparatory and college courses were planned with this aim in mind. He was graduated from the New York Training School for Teachers. In Teachers' College, he earned the Bachelor of Science degree in Education. Later, as a re- sult of successful study, he won his M. A. from Columbia Uni- versity. His practical training in teaching has been broad and var-- ied. For eight years in the elementary and twelve years in the high schools he served in every grade from the fourth of the elementary school through the eighth in the high school, teach- ing successively and successfully boys' classes., girls' classes, and mixed classes. His supervisory and executive work proved the mettle of the man. For four and a half years as Head of the Department of English in the Julia Richman High School, he supervised the work of thirty teachers in seven buildings. The high commen- dations of Principal and Superintendent attest his success. He was chairman of a central committee controlling the work of several teachers, committees in the Julia Richman High School, which succeeded in simplifying, correlating, and co-ordinating the varied interests to a degree quite unknown before. As President of the New York City English Teachers' Association, he built up the largest membership in the organization's his- tory. Mr. Avent has made valuable contributions to educational progress, particularly in the field of English teaching. He was a member of the Superintendentis Committee which surveyed the work of the high schools in 1923. He helped in revising the the high school course in English. At the National Convention of Teachers of English held in Chattanooga in 1922, he repre- sented the English teachers of this City. Again at the New York State Association of Teachers of English held in Syracuse in the same year, he spoke as a representative of the New York City teachers of English. In initiating the Threshold Theatre plays for high schools, Mr. Avent was chieHy instrumental. Perhaps the most valuable educational service rendered by him was the investigation he initiated of the teaching of English in the high schools of the large cities. The report of this investi- gation, prepared under his direction, is regarded so highly as a comprehensive and scholarly study of the conditions of Eng- lish teaching in this country, that copies are called for from all sections. -13.- Jae. jrHEmMoRR1s ANNUAL As student, teacher, administrator, and man, Mr. Avent has always displayed pre-eminent qualities. The teachers of his early years still recall with pleasure the quiet, studious and yet normal. fun-loving hoy. His sense of humor in youth and man- hood has never failed him. In his relations as a teacher he was firm, infiexihly just, patient. thorough, inspiring, and ah- solutely dependable. His co-workers have always found him helpful and constructive in criticism, a wise leader in all for- ward-looking movements, tactful and unassuming. In all of his relations, in and out of school, his dignified, genial, courteous. connpanionable personality mark him as a man of rare parts. al Sonnet: To Washington Return, O Vfashington, so strong and great!

THE MORRIS ANNUAL Clarence E. Meleney By Dr. John L. Tildsley One day as we were picking blueberries on the granite rocks of Maine, my little Kathleen, weary after the first cupful, said to me-'6lVly life was not born to pick blue-berries!" I know not if Clarence Meleney was born to pick blue-ber-V ries. He does this well, but I do know that he was born to bring healing to the ills of little children. As he taught the district school those three cold winter months each year in Maine to carry him through Colby, his plans centered around medicine as his life work. It was this end that lured him from Quincy to Yonkers i11 the hope that here, while teaching by day, he might study medicine by night and so some day enter upon the life work of his choice. He did read medical hooks in the evening, but unlike some young teachers of today, his New England conscience, invigor- ated by his Scotch blood, did not allow him to make medical study the chief business of his life whe11 he was being paid to teach children. He taught tloo well and so he was called hither and yon, to Newark with Barringer-to Paterson, where he began his forty-two years work as school superintendent- theu, after five years, back to the Bay State to Somerville, where the School Committee did not even see him before they chose him to be their superintendent. And everywhere he carried the Parker ideal, education adapted to the peculiar needs of each child. So no more time for medical study. Naught but an idle dream. ' But Nature thwarted in one field always has her way in another. Unable to make the young Meleney a healer of the body, she made him a healer of the mind. Throughout the nearly fifty years of his teaching life, Dr. Meleney has known no bad boys, no hopeless, useless cases-but he has known less gifted boys and girls, victims of an untoward heritage, of an un- favorable environment, either of the home or of the classrooms- stunted, bewildered boys and girls, who need only the sym- pathetic service of the skilled teacher to blossom as the rose, to become what God meant them to be. This thwarted aim of Clarence Meleney to be a physician has found its outlet in his love of and encouragement of science -21- T11-.E MORRIQ- ANNUAL in our schoolsfhis belief in the neccssitv of physical training- his establishing classes for crippled children, the first in New Yorkfof the first uugraded classes-of vacation schoolsAof the Parental School- -of the first organized system for the cure of truancy. Instead of mending broken limbs, he has mended stunted minds, he has brought education to those who knew it not be- fore. Wie of the high schools, think of Dr. Meleney as primarily interested in the high school, but it is really the little children who have been the burden of his thoughts, his plans, for more than thirty years of his teaching life. And yet to Dr. Meleney we owe the first Committee on High Schools of the Board of Education. which was established on his initiative before New York City had really sensed the need of high schools. How interesting to learn that the Board of Education established its Committee on High Schools before that of the Board of Superintendents. How refreshing to know that a Board of Education was made to sense a burning educa- tional need before the professional body had realized its ex- istence. And amid all this starting things to make life richer and brighter for the young and helpless, Dr. Meleney found time for summer school lectures at Dartmouth and for the management of the summer school at lVlartha's Vineyard-for music-Hfdid you ever hear Dr. Meleney whistle?D for church work in Brook- lyngand with all, for swimming and golf-and rooting for Dartmouth, his Alma Mater by adoption. But Dr. Meleney can be stern as well as kind. As I think of his more than forty years' service to the handicapped child, I would characterize him as one who, throughout his life, has sought to make sound the wings of lame ducklings. But to another kind of lame ducks he has never turned a smiling face. The lame ducks who run to school commissioners and superin- tendents to save them from the consequences of their incom- petence and indifference. Dr. Meleney was born in Salem, home of witches. Possibly he sees the lame duck teacher as the lineal descendant of the witches who escaped burning at that time. But these present day evil witches don't stick needles in children, they merely make them dwarfs instead of giants. Kindness is not softness. Dr. Meleney has by inheritance an Irish heart.. but he has also inherited Scotch steadfastness, and all English indifference to the clamor of the mob. For these twenty-seven years in New York City he has trodden the rocky road of the superintendent. School boards have comf' 5.22- THE MORRIS ANNUAL and school boards have gone, but political bosses and political commissioners have let Meleney alone. His educational policies have been those his own judgment approved, not those which educational hysteria or changes in politics have sought to im- pose upon him. His vote has ever been his own. No man holds his mort- gage. He has never bowed the knee to Baal. He has kept faith with the children and so he has been the master of his fate! He has been the captain of his soul! The captain of his soul! How easy for the superintendent to say! How difficult to be! Like the straight and narrow path that leadeth into Life, how few there be that find it! And through these seventy years he has run true to form. The urchin of Salem, reared in an atmosphere of work, of doing with his might what his hand findeth to do, endowed with a conscience which forbids any trifling with duty, the youthful disciple of Parker at Quincy, eager for experiment is, at seventy the same youthful enthusiast for new ideas, the same believer in the true and the tried, the same integer vitae sclerisque purus whom we here assembled respect and love. After ten years of intimate association and closest fellow- ship with Dr. Meleney, will you permit me to offer this tribute to the fine qualities of manhood which have endeared him to all those who have worked with him, and allow me to render heartfelt thanks for his generosity of spirit, which has made it possible for us to work together for the past three years fin coms plete harmonyj in constructive work for the realization of common educational ideals.

Men called him Rhu- mantor, for lol who dared utter that name given to him by the godsi And he reigned over the magnificent kingdom of Taecon which the gods made mighty and beautiful, for the gods loved Rhumantor and the gods loved Taecon. And he lived in a massive marble palace which had huge doors of smooth yellow gold. And he sat on a tall throne of pale blue silver de- signed with luguhrious onyxes and glaring rubies. And every year, thirty mighty nations contributed one hundred thousand bars of gold to please the whims of this king. Poets sang of love and the gods, prophets whispered ancient prophecies, beau- tiful women danced for him, accompanied by the luscious sounds of delicate flutes. But the king was sad, for he thought of Death, and Decay and Time, who are Death's kinsmen. Now the gods loved Rhumantor, and the gods loved Taecon, for Rhumantor burnt much wreathed incense and sacrificed many long-haired goats, and built high temples whose pinnacles were of palest ivory. Therefore, the gods asked Laimoo, the Ineffable 0ne,'the Maker of All, to create Anaia, the Unattain- able. And so, Laimoo created Anaia in the form of a woman, :1 woman so fair that even mad-eyed poets dared not dream of so ravishing a creature. And the gods placed Anaia in the palace of Rhumantor to divert that fervid mind of his that thought only of Death, and Decay and Time, who are Death's kinsmen. But, as soon as Auaia was placed in the massive palace of Rhumantor and the desirous princes saw her clothed in her radiant beauty, they made a tremendous din, for all wished to touch her small white hand. And so loud was the din, so simultaneous thc clang of the silver swords, that Rhumantor ran quickly from his bed-chamber, where he was wont to medi- tate, fearing that some foreign horde had invaded his palace. -24- T.HE MORRIS ANNUAL And, as soon as he entered the crowded hall, the princes stopped their fighting and muffled their harsh voices and stood as still as the lifeless marble below their feet. Thus spake Rhumantor in trembling tones. 'GO woman more beautiful than the pale desert of Geuna, more delicate than the glitter of stars! 0 why have you come from some ruthless land to peace-loving Taecon to ensnare men,s hearts and make their eyes leap with fire? Wlhat evil spirit has sent you abroad? Vifho are you? Vilhat destruction would you work?', And in a voice as smooth as a lute string, Anaia answered. "I am Anaia, the Unattainable. And the gods have made me. And Laimoo, the lneffable One, the Maker of All, has conceived me. And I am she that can quench that fire that tortures within. And I am she that can make groping man think himself happy. And neither can man be happy unless he seek me, for I am Happinessg I am Beautyg I am Truth. 'tHe who shall seek me, shall be rewarded with the three beatitudes. He who shall not seek me. shall be as the alliga- tor lying in the mire. But only he, who has a heart of stone and the strength of a sweet-voiced god, may follow, for I lead men into unknown paths and curious destructions. QI am Anaia. the Unattainable, and the gods have made me, and Laimoo, the Ineffable One, the Maker of All, has con- ceived mef' Rhumantor stretched out his hand to grasp her, but she disappeared, leaving only a vague fragrance of incense behind her. For a few moments all was silent, but tl1e11 followed chaos. A multitude of hoarse shouts and piercing shrieks filled the hall-sounds as iuarticulate as the chattering of frenzied apes. Withoiit, the long rolls of booming thunder, the sharp pattering of rain were heard. The palace rocked spasmodically like a huge marble cradle. Iiut clearly, and in quivering tones. Rhumantor roared, '4By Laimoo and Sidona, I go to seek Anaia, the Unat- tainablef, and he left Taecon forever. II Now, it is said that Rhumantor wandered through many strange countries, meeting with many curious adventures, for he passed through the green jungle of Samiloo, and through the glittering desert of Tern, and over the purple sea of Berom, and over the wine-red river of Dagoni. And. it is further told, that Anaia was always one day's journey ahead of him. And, when he came to a city and asked if they had seen Anaia, -25- THE MORRIS-.ANNUA-E the people smiled wittingly, and said that she had just left the city a day before. And the world thought Rhumantor mad, for he had wandered for more than fifty years and he had left his kingdom, and many hordes had invaded it, and Rhumantor was now an old man with a long grey beard and tattered clothes and shriveled skin. One day, he came to Mount Sidona, and as he started to as- cend this mountain, he met a lion. And the lion ironically said unto him, "I know you, O Rhumantor, wisest of fools. I know of your many quests and of your many sorrows. And I speak to you, for wise creatures, at intervals, speak to fools. Behold! I have not sought the Unattainable: chimeras that are as grotesque as scarlet, glistering blood, I have not sought mir- ages that blind the naked eye with their radiance. I have three smiling wives, one hundred fawning slaves. I am never hungry, I always have luscious foods and delectable luxuries. And yet, you have had this too, and have forsaken all, all. And why, O Rhumantor, whom men truly call mad?" "O vile fool! 0 contented heastli' cried Rhumantor, 'GI am Rhumantor, and a man, and master of the tempestuous seas, and of the odorous fields and of all creation. I seek Anaia, the Un- attainable, who is as the moon and the stars. 'LAnd from Nowhere have I come and to Nowhere do I go, for the gods have made me a bitter jest. And I seek Anaia. the Unattainable, who is as the moon and the stars." Thus he left the proud lion, who was the king of all beasts of the field, and he ascended Mount Sidona, which was the highest of mountains in those days. And when he reached the highest peak, it was night and the stars glittered like huge diamonds and the moon smiled mockingly. And Rhumantor sat on a cold rock and wailed. But he felt a Warm hand touch him. He looked up and saw in all magnificence Anaia. Her eyes were brighter than glitter- ing stars. Her skin was smoother than the smiling moon. But Rhumantor could not speak, but wailed. Anaia spake in a voice as smooth as a lute string. 'LI am Anaia, the Unattainable. And the gods have made me. And Laimoo, the Ineffable One, the Maker of All, has con- ceived me. And you have sought me for many anxious years, for so it was written. And, in the end, you have found me here on the highest peak of haughty Sidona, for so was it written. '4The three beatitudes have been made by Laimoo, and the greatest of his creations are they.

THEODORE ROTHMAN - 29 - 'FHE MORRIS ANNUAL The Message of the Constitution HF Constitution of the United States is k fl the most treasured possession of the 5 Q5 American people, not only because its contents are the guiding spirit in the f Q ..a Qi' ,4 . . . I v b t 1 administration of t ie government u wiki i also because it is in itself the very per- G 5 sonitication of the American spirit. As Homer sang of those virtues which placed Greece upon her pedestal of fame, as Virgil intoned those characteristics which made Rome the uliternal Cityf' so did our forefathers in this great document reveal those traits which have made America the hope of the world. Indeed, were this docu- ment alone to be left as the epic of the American people, from its contents could be obtained those ideals which are rep- resentative of American institutions. To justify these state- ments we need but to peruse the contents of this document, couched in language the charm and clarity of which have evoked universal admiration. The plan of government as outlined in this compact is the greatest monument to American inventiveness ever constructed. Beside it, the mighty accomplishments of our greatest industries pale into insigniticance. Wvhat other document so justly pro- tects the rights of sovereign states and yet binds them so firmly with the ties of union? Wfhen our country took up arms in the recent war, so strong a bond was our Constitution that although it was evident that this meant untold horrors and suffering, in- stantly the power and resources of every single state were pledged to the defence of the National honor. And yet, with so firm a bond of Union, what other document grants such freedom to the states in matters of such vital interest as educational sys- tems, city governments, primary systems, prison reform and kindred subjects? By tl1e aid of the Constitution these sov- ereign rights of states are secured. Wherein do we find so effi- cient a system of checks and balances, and where a dispensary of justice on a par with our Supreme Court? The sacredness of contract, the power to dissolve threatening monopolies, the 52' -:td I is. il lc f gh ' ilu. .,fZmmisi,l -30.- THE MORRIS ANNUAL protection of our country from unconstitutional measures- these are but a few of the safeguards with which our Constitu- tion provides us through the Federal Courts. What other docu- ment is so elastic as to govern a nation during its growth from a population of four million to one of one hundred and six mil- lion, from an area of 800,000 square miles to one of 3,500,000, and from the least important in the family of nations to the very greatest? Through a period which has witnessed upheavals in suffrage, commerce, transportation and communication and in ideals, the Constitution survives intact in spirit, with but nine material changes. This great document, then, in its plan of government is symbolic of that American inventiveness which has produced such wonders in science. arts and industry. This Constitution embodies that spark of American genius which gave the world Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Procla- mation, Wfoodrow Wilson and the League of Nations. This plan of government, admirable as it is, nevertheless depends upon the support of the American people. Not only must co-operation in the maintenance of this government be forthcoming, but every American should consider it his su- preme duty to protect it from the attacks and inroads of those hostile to it. The search for the enemies of this document need not he carried far from our own shores. Conliuing our efforts to the limits of our own country, we find enemies far more dangerous than any foreign foe. We find the evils of corrup- tion, partisan politics, ignorance of the Constitution, all work- ing hand in hand to destroy the smooth-running and efficient government created by our forefathers. Too long have we Americans permitted corrupt politicians to lower the efficiency of our government and to discredit our national honor by dis- honorable practises. The blame for this condition of affairs is largely our own. Wfhen but fifty per cent. of those eligible cast their votes at a presidential election, 'as was the case in 1920 when one of the most important issues in the history of our country was at stake, is it to be wondered that our government has fallen prey to corruption? lt is incumbent upon every true American to take an active interest in government matters. To do this intelligently he must know and understand the Constitu- ion. As the Bible is the cornerstone of religion, so is our Con- stitution the very sustenance of our government. And as everv true believer is firmly grounded in his Bible, so should every true American be familiar with the Constitution. Wlere we to believe and to love the spirit and principle of our government, to appreciate tl1e beauty and charm of our Constitution, its en- -31.- THE MORRIS ANNUAL compassing humanity, our citizens would take a more active in- terest in their government and thus put a curb to both corrup- tion and indifference. By proper use of the ballot we can eliminate partisan politics from our Government. When one considers how often questions like the tariff and tax reduction are being decided along strict party lines, if he has the interest of his country at heart, he determines to do all in his power to end this practice. To do so, we must elect fearless men, men with high and wise ideals who are not to be dictated to by a boss politician. We must, I say, keep inviolate the spirit of our Constitution, as it directs us in the administration of our gov- ernment. Law and Order, that homely phrase which constitutes one of the fundamentals of government, is not without representa- tion in our Constitution. This principle was prominent in the plans of our forefathers while drawing up this document. They realized the truth of Mr. Coolidgels recently spoken words, "Liberty can only be secured by obedience to the law." Vllhether it means that we are deprived of personal enjoyment or of large pecuniary gains, every provision of the Constitution must be obeyed not only in letter, but in spirit. Our Constitution is a dike against the seething waters of anarchy and disorder. By disobeying one provision, we weaken this dike at a strategic point, and so lay ourselves open to the mercy of the sweeping Hood behind. Does not lynching deny the right of trial bv jury? Does not bootlegging defy our law? These are evils which must lead to the destruction of our Constitution and then of our government. Therefore, I call upon you to hold sacred the provisions of our Constitution that we may continue to enjoy the blessings of Liberty and the prosperity of orderly govern- ment. As we link Greece with perfection in the arts, as we men- tion Rome and law in the same breath. so do we associate Amer-- ica with freedom and equality. The Bill of Rights as contained in our Constitution is the greatest guarantee of personal free- dom ever obtained. Yet so skillfully has this document been drawn up, that nowhere is the common good sacrificed for the benefit of the individual. Its provisions for right of assembly, free speech, equality before the law, protection of life and property, are the very fires of the American spirit, and right- fully establish its title of the greatest exponent of democracy. Freedom and equalitv have been vitally important in the ex- istence of this Republic since its very creation. Till now, America has freely welcomed the immigrant. Wlhatever re- -32- :gs 4 T H E M 0 R R I S WU strictions we may now need to lay, there will always he the need of inspiring and instructing our foreign horn citizens i11 the ideals and operation of our government. The primary requisite of Americanization is loyalty to the Constitution prompted hy a clear understanding of its principles and provisions. Guided hy such a principle not only will our Americanization prohleln disappear, hut we shall secure a type of patriotism that is firm and enduring lvecause it is intelligent and heartfelt. Ive, as Americans, find that it is our paramount duty to preserve these American characteristics in all their vigor and spirit. Let ns pledge unhesitating support to the Constitution. us maintain its dignity and authority. Let us keep untar- nished the gifts which it grants us. Wvith the fidelity of the Roman Iegionaire, with the courage of the American udough- hoyn, with an intelligence horn of cle--r understanding, ainl with a love as strong and holy as that which hinds mother and child, let us cherish this great Constitution. .IUSEPH .l.

I shudder when I think of Sholom, of his life devoted to the highest ideals. and perfume. Perfume symbolized beauty and culture to his in- discriminate mind.

They were plain, thinking people, these, and without exchanging a word or a glance, they k11ew that their thought was the same. l-le had lived long enough his lifelof savagery and cruelty. Better for him that he should die. He was not a young man. Many good menfmen who could for- give-had died earlier in life. So they consoled themselves. They thought that perhaps they might yet live a little longer- without this black shadow over their lives--not in contentment, hut in peace. He had lived long enough. So, too, thought the frenzied laborer, who, while the sun burned holes in his back and blinded his eyes, dealt his master his death blow. A death blow, for, struck an hour before, it left its victim trying to ac- complish that last strong thing of his life-trying to separate his breath from his body. In their stoicism, the wife and children of Yaegar were merciful. They hoped that he would not linger till the last stroke of the clock which was beginning to strike the twelfth hour, and they hoped, faintly, that for his sake there would he no hereafter, no retribution. Wfhat would he get? They felt that thus had they expiated the sin which they had committed in wishing for his death, thus. in letting fall from their hearts the sweet, religious thought that had kept them, in the face of all their masteris tyranny, doing the right and the God- fearing thing-retribution. They each had the same thought. For theilaborer who had gone back to the field, there was no such peace-inspiring thought. He groveled in the earth where there was a pool of blackening blood and he felt that if anything would accomplish his end it would be this burning, -40... 'EHE MORRIS ANNLAWE merciless sun. This burning. glaring sun, under whose spell the frenzy was born that resulted in the crime. This burning, heartless sun through which he wished he could drive a blunt iron, the same kind of blunt iron with which he had killed his master. He groveledvwilder and wilder, demented, sav- age, like his master. In the room, the clock was striking the third of the twelve strokes, and the doctor released the hand of his tpatient and rose quickly from the bedside. He did not look toward the people who should have been sorrowful at losing a dear one, but he closed his bag with a snap. The tension over, the mother and daughter fell sobbing into each other's arms, and the son, turning his face to the wall, religiously spoke a men- tal eulogy of this man who often had beaten him till the blood ran. Yaegafs elevation to those regions of which in his life he had never dreamed nor had any awe, began when the clock struck the fourth of the twelve. Xvhether his ascent was like or lifferent from the ascent of men holier in life than he, he did not know. It seemed his was the only soul that had ever gone up that way. He had no time to think of anything. Every- thing was so quick. He knew he was going to heaven and his going up was marked by its absence of everything airy. This much he had heard of heaven-pearly gates-limitless space- wings-sweet, holy faces-occupation-peace. He was unprepared when he found himself in a small room which had nothing in it 'but pictures with familiar faces. He felt strange. He looked about him. This was not heaven. He should not be here. There was a mistake. He looked ahead of him. He saw nothing.. He looked far ahead of him, and for a long time he did 11ot take his eyes from the nothingness he found in the distance. Then he began to see the vast space which seemed a iiowing sheet of eerily beautiful color-ex- quisite scent-profound, Wonderful echoes. He could hear even further away. soft whirring. sometimes a clash, hardly to be heard. faint. rumbling, blurred music-everything blurred, faintly noisy. The effect was intoxicating. Such sounds no one had ever before heard. Such sounds-celestial pandemon- ium! But Yaegar was wistful, sad. He felt so far, far away from it all. The rumblings became so faint he could no longer hear them. Their echo resounded within him. If he could -lv get a little nearer. The pearly gates looked very low. Oh. to be just a little nearer. He was so far away. -41- THE M-,oasis ANNUAL From out of tl1is heaven stepped two figures, softly and clearly distinguishable. They were coming nearer and nearer and they were deep in conversation. Suddenly Yaegar became frightened. He knew it was he they were approaching. Suppose they should ask what he had done in life that he should remain here. Suppose they should weigh his sins, his virtues, his charities. Suppose they should say he could not come nearer. Suppose they should tell him to turn back. He must stay here. A little nearer. He felt very weak. He leaned against Ii wall, but it faded away, leav- ing him standing, shaking. He wondered what there was that could save him. He wondered how he could open those gates. He was fearfully frightened. He felt that he did not belong here. But he must stay here. He must be a part of this scent and sound. A He was growing resentful. The two figures were coming nearer. He decided that if they did not let him stay he would go to another place in which he had once been. He could not remember where he had seen it. This, too, was a colorful place, but its coloring was elemental, vigorous, deep. He regretted. It was not weird, exotic, like this. He remembered that there had been figures in this scent too--colorful figures. Tall figures, with dark faces. Now he remembered everything. It was on earth that this had happened. He was a boy and this was a hand of straggling beggars he had met in a day of mis- chief. He had felt strangely perturbed that day he had found them, because he had just murdered a dog which had been his friend for a very long time. For something, which a year later he could not recollect, he had destroyed a creature who had served no one but him-a dog for whom he had had affection. So he wandered and lfound this band and when he had spent a short while with them he found that there was a deathly sick- ness among them. In his chastened frame of mind he felt with the two women who were suffering and with the two wives whose husbands were suffering, with the two mothers whose children were suffering, with the old hag who had nobody. With tears in his eyes he ran out into the fields and gathered to- gether herbs of which these supersitious folk in their misery had forgotten. His keen mind remembered everything he had once heard about these herbs. He knew how to use them. His day of michief was not over. He did not go home that night. He stayed with the beggars and in the morning joined in their rejoicing over the returned health of their dear ones. ,424 T-HIE MORRIS ANNUAWQ To Yaeger's mind, the coloring of this scene he had never once called back to him, became so deep and rich that it was painful. The pain began to melt and he felt a warm feeling spreading through him. If they sent him away from here, he would go back there-back to those gypsies, in whose tents he had spent one supreme day. If he could get out of here and go back there, he would be happy again. He wanted to spend more such days, he wanted to administer more healing sub- stances, he wanted just once more to laugh and cry with these brown and red people. The two figures were now looking at him sadly. They were telling him that he could not stay. He was happy, hilarious. He was going back to his gypsies. But again they looked at him, this time even more sadly. They shook their heads and told him that he could not retur11 there: there was still another place. At last Yaegar understood. He rebelled-he fought with them. They were merciless, adamant, unmoved. uBut the brown people, I must go back to them. I belong to them. They love me-they want me. I must go." The two figures looked at each other. 'tBrown people?" They became a little doubtful. Suspended from the hands of one of the figures, was a small golden scale. One side was weighted down heavily. The two figures again shook their heads sadly. Yaegar knew they were his sins that lay in the weighted scale. How heavy they must be. He felt so pure now. But the outstretched hand began to tremble a little. From out of the distance came a rumbling sound and they three looked upward. They could see the other side of the scale com- ing down. A whirring sound this time and the scale descended a little lower. The next sound was in indescribable one and the scales were nearly balanced. Yaegaris heart jumped with- in him and stopped. They were not coming down any more. He could just sec above them. In the bottom of the tiny scale he could see six brown people, just as he had seen them that day. Two women, two children and two men. But his sins were still heavy. From out of the far, far distance came another sweet sound, and leaning heavily, painfully, on a knotted stick, the old bag hobbled to the side of the scale and her country- people helped her in beside them. Poor thing, what a way she must have come on her old stick. The scales moved once more. The two figures faced each other joyfully. Yaegar was over- come. -43- THE MORRISANNU or ee L As the last of the twelve strokes lost itself i11 silence, the wife and children of Yaegar, attracted by a sudden movement from the hed, turned toward it and found the calm, happy eyes of their husband and father looking at them fondly. They rushed to the bedside. Pandemonium-earthly pandemouium followed. Servants running over tl1e place and throwing each other over in their excitement. The news spread through the town like wildfire. Soon everybody knew that Yaegar had died and was now alive. Everybody knew, even the band of wandering beggars camping on the outskirts of the little town-a new generation, brown, colorful. Twelve years later Yaegar died.

THE MORRIS ANNUAIi Dreamers of Peace ls X..-H HE dawn of life beheld man dreamingg Hlld the world's early civilization was de- li 0 veloped from these dreams. The world's ' P fl li lu "3i,i X greatest prophets have been dreamers, ' r lf U W, ,Y til' daring to predict what other men could -mf' not even conceive. The world s greatest K if conquerors have been dreamers, whose X ff ef audacious imaginations, inflamed by the love of power, have dwelt on thoughts of aggression and world-empire. The world's greatest failures have been dreamers whose dreams degenerated into fantasies and caprices be- cause imagination was not ruled by reason. The world's greatest writers have been dreamers who gave uto airy nothing a local habitation and a name." The greatest of all dreamers are those who dare to hope for universal peace, for they dream not of their own happiness, but of the blessings that may be transmitted to posterity. If reason dominates their imagination, they do not seek to disparage those who made the supreme sacrifice for the honor and safety of their countryg but they endeavor to render such sacrifices needless in the future. They reverence those who have died for their coun- try, and attempt to teach others how to live for it. These are the true dreamers of peace. Those who have faith in Eternal Peace know how to hope for everlasting peace on earth. V 5 Poets, novelists, and statesmen have endeavored to rouse the world from its lethargy, its toleration of futile wars. Shakes- peare himself wrote in Ml-lenry IV": HA peace is of the nature of a conquestg For then both parties nobly are subdued, And neither party loses." He calls peace a Hdear nurse of arts, plenties and joyful births." Wie need not return to the era of Elizebethan drama in order to show how men throughout the ages have dreamed of peace. Our own gentle sage, Emerson. declared ill an essay entitled '6YVorship", that the real and lasting victories are those of peace and not of war. Longfellow wrote in c'Hiawatha", our national epic: -45... THE MORRIS AN N, ll .cali "Buried was the hloody hatchet: Buried was the dreadful war cluh, Buried were all warlike weapons, And the war-cry was forgotten. Then was peace among the nationsf, Let us leave those who wrote of peace and speak of the statesmen who have wrought to preserve the peace of nations. Name your greatest Americans, and you name the men who have had a vision of joy-hringing Peace and who have endea- vored to keep that vision alive in the hearts and minds of the people. Vffashington asserted that the most certain means of preserving peace was to prepare for war. Lincoln dreamed of peace between North and South, peace without bitterness, happiness through the gradual emancipation of slaves. W'as he any the less great hecause his dream was not realized during his lifetime? Roosevelt, the mighty war-leader, desired a second Hague conference to aid in the settlement of disputes hy are hitration. Vifilson refused to plunge the nation into War until he was convinced that our peace could not he peace with honor. In this wav, great American statesmen have manifested their desire for harmony hetween nations. The dream has not yet heen attained. Many of the dreamers have passed on to Enternal Peace where "the holy melodies of iove arise." New dreamers come to take their place and the message of peace on earth and good will to men comes from the lips of men who love their country well.

THEODORE ROTHMAN, '24 .A 46 ... , ,,,, A THE MORRIS ANNUAL The Coat A Play in One Act The act takes place in a room in the home of Russian peasant folk. The room makes little difference. It is very poo1'. There is a very large window at the side of the room, and through it can be seen, ill its entirety, a patch of vegetable growth without particular shape. This patch, whose wizened harvest appears eternally on the board of these peasants, ex- cites your pity. The warm, bright sun seems to shine on every garden but this one, which just droops and weeps. But the patch is significant because it is characteristic of the occupants. The girl is about fourteen and as you take note of her mel- ancholy face you know that it is not a temporary mood which makes her gaze out 'at the world as though she has just be- come aware of the futility of life. She makes you think of the other person you knew who never smiled. She is standing at one end of the window and her mother is seated at the other, sewing. She turns toward the older woman and as your eyes, too, rest on her. you know instinctively that it is she who takes care of the garden. Anna-It's father. fThe older woman glances at the clock and says nothing.j Anna-He'll be here in a minute. He's coming down the hill. The sunis going down. Shall I water the garden?

You musn't feel that way. Anna--I'll never feel better. It's going to be like it was before Luba asked me to play with her. I knew all the time there was something funny. She never thought about me like I did about her. She was such a baby. I once told her I loved her and she said, "Girls don't have to love each other." But I said, MI love you." She laughed at me. She laughed at me when I told her th at even an ocean couldn't really take us apart and she didn't believe me because 'Gan ocean was so big." I don't think she loved me. But I loved her because she played with me. I wish I could cry. The Old Wfoman-It is a little my fault. You talk like an old woman and you ought to cry. fThere is silence.

ALFRED EICHLER, '26 THE MORRIS ANNU-AL Angel's Whisperingsg ig ELF! helpli' Julia suddenly awoke and A found herself trembling violently. She could still hear those frantic cries, and they sounded like those of her husband. fx Sl1e ran quickly to the window. What a treacherous night it was. Those satiated clouds had burst at last, and the snow came down like so many prisoners let loose, and fleeing for dear life. The wind too seemed in a hurry, but evidently did not know in which direction it was going, for it caught up the flakes and whirled them everywhere in its flight. 4'W'hat a hitter cold night," thought Julia. She should not have allowed Joseph to go out in such weather. Yet even while she thought this, Julia could have sworn she once more heard voices crying out in dismay. She tried to go hack to bed and sleep, but strange fearful thoughts haunted her mind. Finally, she got up, dressed and ran out into tl1e storm. She went to a neighboring inn. A sleepy host asked her angrily why she had awakened him at such an hour. Quickly Julia told him that her husband had gone with his brother Henry to collect some money in the neigh- boring village of Oberst. HI know heis in danger, I can hear him crying for help, come, aid mefget your carriage. Come, I will lead the way!" "You are dreaming, my dear womanf, replied the innkeeper, and then a little more tenderly seeing her burst into tears, MYour husband is probably sound asleep in Oberst and it is perhaps his snoring you hear," Again and again he said, "It is only the shrieking of the Wiudf, and vet he could not persuade her to go back to bed. Finally he had to give in, and together they rode forth into the bleak and cruel night. As in a dream Julia showed the way, pointing to where she imagined the cries came from. As they drew near the bridge that crossed from Banashka to Uberst, the innkeeper's eyes nar- rowed and he glanced in all directions, he too heard faint wails but they seemed to come from far away. Suddenly the horses stopped with a great jerk. Julia, jumping out of the carriage saw that the river had overflowed its banks and that the bridge was swamped with water. Heedless of her companion's cries .i v L- -53- THE MORRIS ANNUAL and of all danger she walked quickly along the bridge, the inn- keeper following more slowly and carefully. The shrieks be- came more and more distinct and then with a great cry Julia pointed to something. In the wild river, the dazed innkeeper saw tossing about 011 a huge piece of ice two men clinging to each other for dear life and despairingly sending up prayer after prayer. The strain had been too much for Julia and now the sight of the two men utterly helpless so near and yet so far away almost overcame her. But no! She was not to be van- quished thus and turning quickly to the innkeeper who was slowly retracing his steps she shouted, shaking her fists in a frenzy. G'Coward! Why don't you save them! Wfhy do you stand there like a fool? Go! Help them, go." And she stamped her feet furiously. The man looked at her dumbly and then slowly grasped the situation. "Till save them," he muttered. 'iso help me God I willf, and he started running toward the carriage. Once there he got a large coil of rope and then ran along the shore. After tying one end of the rope to a tree he sent up a loud shout to the men, yelling that he would have them safe in a minute and encouragl ing them to be brave. He twirled the rope in the air land hurled it into space. Julia on the bridge held her breath. "W'ould they catch it?', she asked herself. No! they could not for their fingers were numb from the cold. The innkeeper tried again. Julia found herself gasping and then she almost choked. Joseph had caught the rope. She was scarcely conscious while the two men were being pulled in and only came to herself on seeing Joseph and Henry sitting in the carriage half dead. Julia never forgot that ride home in the dark. Sitting be- tween two frozen men she, too, almost froze. Only one thought filled l1er mind. To feel once more the warmth of leaping red flames. They did leap! They were red! At last, home, warmth, rest. But Joseph, Henry, what of them? She shuddered at the re- membrance of the cruel bitter wind, she shivered with delight at the roaring fire. Then with a start Julia jumped to lie! feet and ran to ,loseph's side. Ah, how good it was to hear his voice once more, even though it sounded hoarse and weak! But what was he saying. "Saved--thank God!" 'gBut l1ow did you get into tl1e river?" It was the inn' keeper speaking. '6The horses leaped in." ' uHow?" -54- THEMORRISANNUAL Wfhe bridge was swamped--the river had overflown-the horses couldn't see, they mistook it for the bridge and then-- the iceberg, we climbed on it. Saved, thank Godin The story of Joseph and Julia was gossipped about in the village for many a day. The peasants claimed it must have been by some magic that Julia had heard the cries of her hus- band. But nobody knew that each night as she lay in bed, Julia would thank the Good Lord for having sent angels to whisper Josephis danger in her ears.

Alas! Only too often do they succeed! Once in. it had stumbled upon the tear- stained cheek of a little girl. Little, do I say? Little perhaps in size and years, but certainly not in thoughts. Wvith head pressed closely against the window, and her long lashes almost touching the pane. she sat, with that far-away look in her brown eyes-dreaming dreams. The little sunbeam seemed pleased with its find, and after bathing in the salt-sweet tear which still clung to her cheek, it pranced into the little brown ringlets of her hair. Here, to the tune of soft little sighs. it danced in and out among the curls. Ah! yes, it danced -and so did she. The paper-littered pavement of the street, the ugly tele- graph poles. and dingy tenement houses. seemed to shimmer, and then fade before her eves. 6? -2? 4? 4? 751 She was sitting beneath a tall pine tree. In the distance the awakening rays of the sun were painting the snow-capped peaks of the distant mountains with the colors of the rainbow. How green the grass was! How beautiful the sky!

But-how had she come there? v At last she had escaped from the suffocating walls of that tenement. .lust then a breeze arose. The whisps of her hair danced, the leaves rustled.

Not so much physically as spiritually. And it shone forth, as her lips moved in a silent prayer of thanks to God, for these golden moments of happiness.

The sun, the mountains. and the trees vanished into mist, and now--darkness-and then the bare little street, with its ugly telegraph poles, and the tall dingy tenements, once more stood before her. One stray beam of the rising sun still danced among the curly brown locks, and bathed in the salt-sweet tear on her check. YETTA HANDLEMAN, '25 The Ship The tragic sun beats down Upon the sand.

SOLOMON, 724 - 57 - THVE MORRIS ANNUAIi Kid Cnce Part I T was a fine and glorious day for the world at large. The sun set in true poetic fashion, causing everyone to pause and glance for a moment at its fading depar- ture. But to Robert Kirwood, it was a V ,V bleak day, for he was sad at heart. He x fig' . . XJ 'fm walked slowly, a dejected figure, alone lll MW his thoughts. Always, that face was be- ,5 fore him, so natural, so real, so lifelike, then it would vanish as Robert gave vent to a deep sigh. Ah, he knew now why people referred to the earth as a cold, fear-inspiring vastness of space. for they had no friends. He realized the value of friendship. At home, a poverty-stricken place, his parents heard the news. He spoke sadlv and falteringly, immersed in thought, painfully as memory often makes one. HMother, they--buried-him." They had expected it, but when it was actually said, it sil- enced Bobbie's parents. Somehow, Robert's father had drawn the facts from him. L'Gee! dad, it all happened so soon. We were playing ball in the street and an auto ran over Jimmie and-and killed him." He ended in a scarcely audible whisper, the last few words dying away into emptiness. There was a moment's silence, the highest tribute to little Jimmie. 4'You will not play in the streets, after thisf' his father broke in upon the deepening silence, 'cyou should have known better." "Where then can il play. Robert's voice quivered as he thought of losing his only playground, the street. '4Any place but there.

It was a little out of the ordinary routine of life, true, but why should the city interfere? If the famous financier, Robert Kirwood, wished to turn a new modern athletic building, free, to the children, desiring only that the city see to its maintenance, it concerned only him. But what prompted this uncommon kindness? Was it natural and instinctive love for children? Here and there one gave his opinion, but had his parents lived to see him succeed, they would have been 'able to understand his reason. The sentence, 'GI dedicate this building to my boyhood chum, Jimmie," would cor1'ect any wrong impression. And so it came to be. He spared nothing, demanding and paying for the best in athletic devices. All around the section the urchins silently admired this great man. Now and then they burst into spasms of joy as they realized the chance he was giving them. They would be real children, with no inter- ruptions, no policemen. They were getting the chance which they had nearly passed by, and they were grateful for it. Finally, the long awaited opening came. The boys and girls came, garbed in holiday clothes, happy smiles on their faces. They packed the gymnasium. At last the late ones entered and the door was shut. Here and there a man flitted about among the crowdg a faint trace of a smile softening his otherwise hard and business- like features. -59- THE MORRIS ANNUAL How they whistled, stamped, and applauded, utilizing every member of their body, when he was introduced as uthe -Robert Kirwoodf' And when he rose to speak to them, the applause increased threefold.

Hounded by the neighborhood scalawagsg made the innocent victim of his classmates' indis- creet jokesg' and friendless, he was rapidly becoming desper- ate. He was teased in school, he was teased out of school, he was teased all the time till his little Oriental body could stand it no longer. ' 5 5 ' E - Sitting on the- floor of his fath-er's laundry and munching a meagre breakfast, he planned ad 'plotted dire ends to all his tormentors. The tortures of the , quisition"were mild as com- pared to the diabolical means he niintally invented to carry out his desire for revenge. 5 In obedience to an order given by his father, he hurriedly stuffed some crackers into his pockets, grabbed his books, and sallied forth to school. ' He walked along rapidly, constantly looking behind him, as if in fear of seeing or being seen by any of the neighborhood embryonic gangsters. So intent was he on looking behind him that, while crossing a street, he walked right intoia traffic police- man. , ' Q T 'cHeyl VVhy the divil don'tcha look where yer goin' to? Seat. now, or I'll--" roared that uniformed worthy. Chinky did not wait to hear more. E ,Always afraid of these blue bosses whom everybody obeyedi, ,ven,the toughest terrors of the East Side, as Chinky had learnei he scampered off tremb- lingly, hislittle shoulders hunched! as if fearing a blow in the hack. The little Chinese lad felt very despondent. Mingled with his inherited fear of policemen, he held an admiration-a love -for this officer in particular who appeared so majestic, so supreme---in the middle of the street, directing traffic. As usual, on arriving at the school, he was pushed, called names, and taunted while in line formation prior to the entrance to classes. But he wasn't the only victim of these injustices at the hands of the white street-gamins. Every Chinese child was subjected to similar tortures quite as often as Chinky. Many of them bought temporary'exemption from serving as victims with candy, tops and other toys of interest to children. As luck would have it, the white kids were eager for trouble and Chinky happened to he the only yellow-skinned represen- tative there. others not having yet arrived. The amhition of -61.. rm , ITITE MORRIS ANNUAL ev:-ry school child is to be first on line and Chinky was only human. However, he was always last, pushed there by these cruel young animals. Socially, he was an outcast. Nobody cared for his company, not even the kids of his own color. But. then, he didn't crave their company, either. All he did want was to be let alone and even this was denied him. "Chinkyl Chinky! Chinkyman!,' the young scalawags yelled. A rebellious tear dimmed his eye, his little lips quivered, and he clenched his little fists. V 4'Chinky! Chinky! Chinkymanli' The cry was taken up on all sides and Chinky found himself surrounded by a mischiev- ous crowd. "Shut up!" yelled the Chinese kid angrily as he felt him- self more and more inclined to burst into tears. Only the unexpected arrival of several teachers prevented a calamity. Experienced in child-lore, they placed Chinky at the head of one of the lines where they believed him safe from harm. He forgot his troubles in his new-found happiness. This was an honor. Timidly, he smiled. But, alas, it was not long before he felt the precariousness of his position. The irate youngster who had lost first place in favor of Chinky craved for revenge. His Celtic features glared hate- fully at the Chinese lad in front of him. He moved back a step. And then- Chinky fell forward heavily. The point of a heavy shoe, landing on the lowest part of his spinal column, had thrown him forward. A teacher ran forward and assisted him to his feet while he gently ruhbed the injured parts and sobbed con- vulsively. , 'Wvho hit you?', the teacher asked. Chinky turned around and was about to point out the per- petrator of the foul trick when, through tear-dimmed eyes, he saw several waving, clenched fists, silent warnings of the fate that awaited a squealer, and hurriedly changed his mind. MI dunno," he sohbed bitterly. And so it went through thc morning. At recess, he sat by himself in a corner. Of course, the numerous other Chinese children took part in all the games but the teachers preferred to have Chinky sit aside during recess. For some reason or other he was hated hy all the kids, who never overlooked an op- portunity to victimize him. Perhaps it was because they hated his father who could not tolerate their playing games i11 front of his shop. Or perhaps it was because Chinky never offered ,62- THE MORRIS ANNUAL to buy his own safety with offerings of toys and candy. Or per- haps it was because he was quiet, the pet of his teachers, and inclined towards day dreaming, not hoisterous, mischievous and trouhle-seeking. The sight of happy, capering children made him feel de- pressed. He was but a child-with a child's heart. Wliy couldn't he play and have fun instead of being made fun of? A lump gathered in his throat but he swallowed it bravely and contiied to Watch the games. At 'twelve the doors opened and the school was quickly emptied of its students. No gong is liked as much as this dis- missal bell-no, not even the frequently heard patrol wagons and fire engines. Chinky hurried down the steps. He had been .detained hy his teacher until all had gone in order to avoid his being hurt on the stairs. He certainly was an enigma to all his teachers. They pitied him, protected him to the best of their ability, and tried to make him popular, but it was all in vain. Nearly every pupil seemed to have a deep-rooted hatred for this little Oriental chap, and the more considerately the teachers treated him the more they grew to hate him. On reaching the street he paused for a moment to adjust his cap. He had four blocks to traverse before he could reach the haven of peace--his father's store. The scalawag who had kicked Chinky. with all his gang. waited silently behind a stoop for tthe appearance of their enemy. "Dere he is. Wee-aw-gee!" they screamed as they spied him and started forward. Chinky saw at a glance what he was up against and turned to run. Here at least he shone. In fleeing, he showed a clean pair of heels to his yelling nursuers. Eyes half shut, breath com- ing in gasps, he ran speedily. Now Spring and Mott is a dangerous corner. Both the trolley and ever-present taxis pass North. South, East and Wfest. A traffic officer, the same with whom Chink had collided that morning, was there on duty when the children come and go to and from the school, which was on Mott Street. Chinky approached this corner at full speed. The wild shouts of his pursuers gave wings to his flight and he ran, eyes half shut and breath coming in gasps. A yell--screams-sscreeching brakes-more screams. Chinkv had run headlong into an auto. The hurly policeman knelt beside the quivering body. The little eyes opened slowly and the little lips moved slightly. -63- THE MORRIS ANNUAL Hiltlll won't let fem llit l1lC?M Cliinlay asked. "Hit ye?

SOLOMON '24 9 W -6.1,- THE Meonnis ANNUAML Conservation of Birds and Flowers In the early spring, I often have the opportunity of leav- ing the stuffy air of the city and wandering out into the wel- coming woods. Once as I strolled along, I became tired and lay down in the shadow of a tree. Either I fell asleep, or it was a mere product of my fancy, but suddenly I heard a voice. Clearly it rang out, saying, "My daughter, let us go and glance into the futuref' Instantly the scene changed and I was wandering in the forest which I had previously visited. I could not decide Whether it was the winter or the autumn of the year. The trees around me had neither the white dress of the former 'nor the bright foliage of the latter, A sun, the heat of whose rays could belong to the months of July and August, heat down upon my hack. But the sky was unnaturally gray, out of har- mony with the hright sun. The trees around me looked like ghosts from another world. As I approached them, I saw their naked trunks and branches covered with layers of worms and caterpillars. The ground around me was ashen grayg and no Hower or grass was anywhere. The forest was unusually quiet even to the silence of death. No living sound, no sound of a bird or animal could I hear. As I stood there in this world of desolation I began to shudder violently. I awoke. 'Was it a magical transformation? Here was the same for- est, but it was living, palpitating, making my heart happy and contented. The birds sang lustily. Everywhere I saw the early spring flowers. blooming under the motherly care of the sun. Could the other scene ever become a reality? I rose and in- spected more closely the objects around me. In many places I noticed desolated nests. I also saw branches of flowers torn out completely from the earth. Fear overcame me. Wlere not these forsaken nests and upturned roots the foretellers of coming disaster? Wlere our descendants not to enjoy flowers and birds? Deprived of thcse, their life would indeed lose all beauty and attraction. Then I thought of a hook I had read where the author em- phasized the wastefnlness of this generation. He cited examples of species of birds that by unlimited hunting and natural disas- ters have been entirely erased from the face of the earth. Some of these are the passenger pigeon, the Labrador duck and the Eskimo curlew. Some of those that are threatened by the evil -65.- THE MORRIS ANNUAL of extermination are the American e ret the willet the whooping crane and the scarlet ihis. g 9 s In another book on wild flowers, the author greatly laments the disappearance of the quaint blossoms from the roadsides. He further says that it is the tendency of the people to pluck rather than to plant. The wildflower is regarded as no one's property. Though these same destroyers would never con- descend to stealing, they exterminate plants without the slight- est prick of conscience. Robert Burns, in his poem, 'LTo A Mountain Daisy," shows a deep understanding of this attitude toward wild flowers. "The Haunting Howers our garden yield, High shelt'ring woods and wa's maun shield, But thou beneath the random bield O'clad or stane, Adorns the histie stibble field, Unseen, alanef' Wie take good care of the cultivated roses, violets and lilies, which, after all, are an outgrowth of the wild flower. These quaint field blooms do not want our care. Cod has given them the power of endurance and the instinct to live in perverse cir- cumstances. They will grow uncared for, but they must not be smitten by the hand of destruction. Let us consider the economic value of flowers. This is not ostensibly great, but what man or woman would tolerate the disappearance of the beauty from fields and parks? We long for the spring because it brings with it the pleasant bright spots on the meadows. Flowers are the instruments of nature to teach a lesson of perseverance and sacrifice for others. Wlhen, however, we turn to the economic value of birds we at once see a number of self-evident uses. Even in the set- tlement of our country, wild life played a most important part. In the days of starvation when food was scarce, one shot from a gun would provide a meal. At present, birds are the most efficient insect exterminators. No artificial device has yet been invented to enable man to dispense with these. Cod sent the saviours of our crops. The birds eat ravenouslv, worms, bugs, locusts., caterpillars, moths and other insects. The farmers and gardeners understand the value of birds and are therefore their greatest friends. Now the question arises whether we shall wantonly destroy the birds, the protectors of our crops, and the Howers, the beautifiers of our lives. We faithfully promise to hand down sacred inheritances from our ancestors to coming centuries. Are f - 66 -- THE MORRIS ANNUAL not the wild life and the flowers a part of our inheritance? If they are, and we must acknowledge that they are, then we should do what our forefathers have done. Through number- less centuries this natural bounty has been handed down to us. Shall we mar this great inheritance and betray the trust of past generations? Maybe my dream vision was the view of a pessimist. But even the greatest optimist on this question faces the future with fear in his heart. Shall we deprive our child- ren of the beautiful flowers and of the song of the birds? If we go on in this fashion, we shall leave behind a Hades, instead of the Heaven that should be their lot. K. DINA GOLDSTEIN, '24 Nocturne Lento e Patetico. It is night ....

Comme elle n'avait ni pere ni mere, il fallait qulelle travailliit tous les jours il vendre des journaux afin de pouvoir clonner in manger a son petit frere de cinq ans qui etait boiteuxl ' Un jour, le frere tomba malatle. Un meflecin etait neces- saire mais ou trouver de Vargent pour le payer? Pauvre Marie etait au flesespoir. Tout it coup elle eut une idee! Prenant quelques couleurs qui lui restaient, elle s'assit devant une toile, et, une supplication sur les levres, elle se mit a peindre! Tard dans la nuit, elle ftravailla, et 51 lsaube, la peinture etait achevee. Alors, Marie courut dans la rue et se plaea 51 un coin pour essayer de vendre son travail. Les gens passaient, regardaient l'enfant avec pitie, mais personne n'acl1etait le tableau! Marie commengait 51 perdre courage. --Qu'as-tu? lui damanfla un monsieur. Que fais-tu ici dans ce froid? lllarie lui raconta sa tristc situation et lui montra la peinture qulelle cllercllait fi vendre. Lll1OIllIlIC prit une poignee d'argent de sa pocbe et clit: -Ticns, acbete tles medicaments pour ton frere. Quant a ton tableau, garde-le jnsqu,a la semaine prochaine, et puis apporte-le a l'Hotel Continental. Je veux le faire voir a un de mes amis. Marie courut Z1 la maison. --Pierre! cria-t-il en entrant. Personne ne repondit. Elle alla vers 'le lit, secoua son frere, mais il ne bougea pas. Alors elle coniprit: LE PI-YTIT RTAIT MORTI Deux lieures plus tard, Marie se releva. La premiere chose qu'elle vit, e'etait l'argent et le tableau. Une colere la saisit.

Pues, le dire. En una parte de la lluerta de Alborzlya, vivia un zuwiano pastor, el tio Tomlma y su nieto Tonet. Este era un joven muy timido y modesto que trahajaba todos los dias en una car- niceria. Al carnicero, hombre muy gordo, Tonet le gustaha muchisimo porque llevaba carne a las alquerias ricas y otras veces labraha los Campos y recogia estiercol. Aunque era II'!llf'llHCll0 tan llueno, todas las llilanderas se burlaban de elfsiendo Hoseta la fulica que no lo llacia. Avcausa de esto, el se enamoro de ella, y todas las noches, cuando Roseta regresalua de la falmrica, el solia ir a su encuentro y la acompanaba andando un poco detras de ella. Nunca deeiu ni una palallra. Solo cuando Roseta le decia algo, con- testalla von una u otra palabra, y despues se cullaba Como si ya el hulmiese dicllo mas de lo que convenia. Asi seguiau las cosas dia tras dia. Luego algo sucedio. Sin saber vomo, le vino a Tonet valor, y un dia al ir con Roseta, le declaro su amor. iY que feliz era Cuando oyo de los lalxios propios de Roseta que ella correspondia a este amor! De-sale ese momento en adelante llablaban los dos solamente del matrimonio proyectado. Wlientras esto sucedia y en estos dias, Tonet no tralmjaba con tanto empefio como antes. Cada dia se paseaba por los Campos, ya no tratalm de vender la carne a los parroquianos, y ya no ayudalba an su amo en lalrrar los campos. Por eso, el carnicero se enfado mucllisimo y le dijo a Tonet que se fuese y que no volviese mas. El mismo dia, al acompanar a Roseta hasta su easa, se envontro con Batiste, el padre de la hilandera, y tamlwien este se enfado Illl,lCl1iSlYIl0 y le dijo que no anduviese mas Con su llija. Ast, c-on este encuentro, terminaron tristemente los amores entre Tonet y Boseta. El pohre joven tuvo que ir a trahajar en una carniceria donde no tenia ningunos dias de fiesta y donde su nuevo amo y el pastor le vigilallan siempre. AIIOTZI, le he contado la triste llistoria del pobre Tonet, y de sus primeros amores. Pero hay en ingles un proverlaio que dice: MAmor de I'llllCl'lHf7ll0 dura poco y luego vuelve otra vez a naverf' Luego creo que dentro cle pocodtiempo Tonet se olvidaria de Roseta, y Roseta se olvidaria de Tonet.

El interior de la lmarraca estalma malamente provisto de unos euantos bancos, tres carteles de almecedario mugrientosg y en la llabitacion de don Joaquin, el maestro, unos muelmles viejos, gastados Como si lluliiesen corrido media Espana. El unico objeto nuevo en la sala era la Cana que el maestro renovalia cada dos dias de un vanar vecino, pues se gastaba muy pronto sobre las duras y esqniladas testas de sus alumnos. La Cabana nunca estaha muy limpia, pues la mujer obesa del maestro en vez de limpiarla se quedaba sentada todo el dia sobre la silleta de esparto oyendo y admirando a su marido. El metodo moruno de ensenar se usaba. Este metodo era cantar y repetir hasta que las lecciones, por tanto martilleo, entrasen en las duras calrezas de los discipulos. Por esto se podia oir siempre una melopea fastidiosa desde la puerta. El maestro interrumpia siempre al oir contestaciones erroneas para hahlar a sus alumnos de la estupidez y la lmrutalidad de ellos mismos y de sus padres. Los alumnos de todas edades aceptallan indiferentes las instrucciones de don Joaquin y repetian como loros cada palalrra que el soltaba de su hoc-a. El maestro explicaba la urlmanidad y la buena Crianza a Ouya explieacion ellos no pres- taban atencion, sino que seguian insultandose unos a otrosg esto hacia que don Joaquin los castigase infiriendoles golpes crueles. Despues de estos momentos tristes las lecciones se reno- valman pero muclias veces solian dnterrumpirse otra vez por la visita del tio Tomlwa, el Viejo pastor, que venia con sus ovejas. Don Joaquin que respetalaa a este viejo pastor permitia a los mucllacllos un asueto mientras el tio Tomlaa relatalta sus aven- turas de la guerra con los franeeses y contalwa sus acciones lleroicas en las lmatallas. Mientras tanto los pupilos salian sin permiso y se divertian molestando a las ovejas, tirando de los rahos y llaviendoles hajar rodando por los rilaazos. Cuando el profesor estalra Cansado de f'Sf?UCllll1' los vuentos del vieio, Se exvusalxa del pastor y gritalwa a los alumnos que entrasen en la lmarraca donde los revilmia a golpes.

Los muchachos entonces despues de este discurso se formaban de dos 611 dos, y besandole la diestra al maestro, marchaban por la plazoleta del molino que era una estrella de caminos y sendas. Alli deshaciase la formacion en pequefios grupos, alejandose cada mucbacbo por distinto punto de la Vega. Reproduccion de un cuento, de uLa Barracaf' escrita por Helen Josephson, "25. Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln nacio el doce de febrero de 1809 en el condado ide Harden del estado de Kuntucky. Sus padres eran muy pobres y ellos Vivian en una pequefia casa construida de madera.

Wir hatten gerade viele Geschichten gelesen und sie Waren mir frisch im Sinn. Als ich an meinem Pult sass, fing ich an schalfrig zu werden, und ehe ich es Wusste, schlief ich ein. Ich befand mich in einem Boot auf dem Rhein. Schoene Musik klang ploetzlich an mein Uhr. Ich blickte zu einem grossen Fels hinauf und da sah ich ein schoenes Maedchen, auf einer Harfe spielen. Sie uickte mir zu, aber ich wusste dass sic die Lorelei war, also wandte ich mich ab, und kam an eine kleine Insel. Ich befes- tigte mein Boot und stieg aus.. Vor mir stand ein wundervolles Schloss mit vielen Tuermen und aus dem Fenster eines dersel- ben beugte sich ein sehoenes Maedchen mit goldenem Haar. Ea War des Koenigs Tochter welche hier gefangen gehalten wurde. Ich, aber, beschloss sie zu befreien, ging zu einem Fernsprecher und rief meinen Freund Eppo von Gailingen auf. Er versprach soglich zu kommen und bald stand er an meiner Seite. Wlir befreiten das Maedchen und rittcn nach Eppos Schloss. Nun ging ich wieder auf neue Abenteuer aus. Ich kam nach Eisen- ach, sah die Whrtburg, und beschloss, die Nacht dort zuzn- bringen. Ich stieg den Berg hinauf und als ich ans Hoftor kam, War ich sehr muede. Ich schlief in dem Hofe ein, und traeumte wieder dass die heilige Elisabeth zu mir kam und mich bat ihr zu helfen. Als wir den Berg hinunterstiegen, sah ich viele ar- men Leute denen Elisabeth Brot gab. In einer der Strassen Eisenachs trafen wir Wolfram, den Minnesinger. Ich bat ihn mir ein Lied zu singen. Als er ge- rade so wundcrschoen sang, hoerte ich hinter mir ei11e Stimme. Sie sagte, MWIQIS ist los, Schiemann, schlafen Sie?" Ich wachte auf und wollte aus dem Beit springen aber zu meinem Verdruss und dem Vergnuegen meiner Mitschueler befand ich mich in dem Schulzimmer. Verschwunden waren die lichen Gestalten aus Sage un Geschichte. Q FRED SCHIEMANN, '25 :fb M, ik fini ,jw.,.i2,,,:g,.

If you reflect for a moment you will find it is because you have been convinced of the importance of the desirability of riding that vehicle that you have determined to do so. The bicycle has the 'appearance of a harmless little mechanical contrivance, so unsuspectingly you are led towards it. Having once decided to learn, you gather all the necessary implements for your cycling education: a bicycle, a strong pat- ient friend and a bottle of Sloanis Liniment or any other lini- ment guaranteed to fix all bruises or sprains 'Lwhile you wait". Now that you are ready to begin your lesson you mount the bi- cycle while it is supported by the curb and your friend. This is easy, so you smile 'to yourself and say, "Learning to cycle is going to be simple." Your preceptor, however, disturbs your pleasant state of mind and body, by telling you to push your left foot down. You would be glad enough to accomodate him, but you find that doing so shakes the 'ibiken and even causes it to move. Since you have already made yourself comfortable where you are, and have no desire to visit the other end of the block, you do not comply with your friendis unreasonable demand. Your friend, on the other hand, is determined that you learn that very day and therefore he brings the wheel to mo- tion, disturbing your peace and quiet and causing the ground to move beneath you. You suddenly feel yourself seized with an urgent desire to be on firmer ground. You therefore release your death clutch from the handlebars and make for the ground in the quickest, safest way. The way proves quick but not entirely safe, for you bring the "bike" and your friend down with you. You then go back to the place from where you started and make use of the third factor of learning to ride, by rubbing it on your arms and convincing yourself that it doesnit hurt any more. f -76- THE MORRIS ANNUAL Between the time that you resolved to learn and now, a strange feeling has arisen within you. You are conscious of the fact that you are very, very fond of yourself a11d therefore feel unwilling to place yourself in any danger for the sake of becoming a cyclist. Your friend' has different ideas, so, regardless of your own opinions, preferences and newly-made prejudices, you find your- self remounting the now diabolical two-wheeled monster. Things proceed much more famously the second time and after the fifth time you begin to feel annoyed with your friend's services, for pushing you about in this manner makes you feel like the occupant of a peramhulator. Then with a cynical smile your friend leaves you to your fate. It is then that you make the astonishing discovery that you have been constructed all wrong, that one side of you is de- cidedly heavier than the other. Your tendencies, body and "bike,' continue to lean toward one side and all too soon you make a hasty trip southward, or more accurately, downward. When you arrive at your unpremeditated destination, a cold unsympathetic pavement, you try to use your head for some- thing other than landing upon. You are suddenly seized with an inspiration to correct the balanced state of affairs and so you lose no time in changing your mode of coiffure from a part on the side to a part in the middle. This change, you feel confident, will correct the equilibrium. Once more you mount with renewed confidence and vigor, only to find your dearly cherished idea affects nothing but your appearance. Your plight is sad and quite discouraged you give up--but only for that day. ' HILDRETH ALEXANDER, '24 Magazines We Read at Morris WEIRD TALES ........................

It is always either being lived up to or lived down, depending on whether it was ac- quired or thrust upon you. It is hard to say which position is the worse to occupy. There was once a girl who was widely known among her friends and acquaintances as a humorist. No matter what she said the effect was the same. Her conversational offerings were always succeeded by loud uncontrolled mirth. Wvhen her name was mentioned this would follow: 'tOh, do you know her? Isn't she a scream? Honestly, I almost die every time she opens her mouthf' The girl didn't want to be a uscreamn. She would have hated to cause the death of anyone hy merely opening her mouth. Yet there were times when she would have smiled cheerfully to see any one of her friends topple over in her last death throes. It is naturallv disconcerting to he greeted hy loud shouts of laughter when you remark that it looks as if it might rain. It is even more annoying to have hysterical giggles burst forth on mentioning the fact that you had to do your hair three times in one morning. 1 I implore you to show your independence. The next time you meet one of these much-heralded "screams" struggle to smother your chortles of appreciation. After the first few times you'll he surprised to find howeeasy it is. In addition to the stimulus to your own self-esteem you will be rendering a service to mankind. If that girl were a conscientious truth-lov- ing soul, she might dislike to think she was provoking too much laughter under false pretences. She might feel it her dutv to give her friends something to laugh at. She might turn into a would-be humorist. Than that, there is nothing worse on this earth. Consider the frightfull consequences and resolve that in the future you will not aid in thrusting a reputation on anyone. But, perhaps even harder to live with than a reputation that has been thrust upon you, is one that you have acquired. It is a constant source of worry and annoyance. If you are noted for your clever, brilliant mode of conversing you cannot afford to allow any lapse. It does not do to bring forth ciitiing witticisms after the occasion for using them has passed. Nor can you allow yourself the luxury of redirecting your conversa- tions after they have taken place, putting in all the apropos. subtle remarks you have since thought of. No, indeed! You -78- 5-s -f A ..., is frmuls MORRIS ANNUAL must have them right at hand, a constant flow of casual epi- grammatical retorts., ready at all times and correct for all oc- casions. Or if you have acquired a reputation for being a bluffer you must keep a watchful eye on yourself. On no account be caught with a book in your hand or in any similar compromis- ing situation. All your studying must be done secretly behind locked doors. In answer to the wondering queries of your ad- miring friends do not commit yourself. ,lust shrug your shoul- ders in a bored fashion and say that you idon't know how you do it, but that you guess it comes naturally to you. Keeping up with your reputation is a greater strain than it would appear. If you can do without any you are to be cou- gratulated. If you must have one, by all means acquire one of being queer. It is by far the easiest to maintain, since it ac- counts for all your peculiarites and foibles, and it may afford you a great deal of pleasure as well.

Home politics is a most interesting study, for the family might easily be compared to the nation. It is a world in itself, sometimes a happy, co- M+-f-w-- operative world, often a selfish disdainful world. By a family, I do not refer to 'your modern make-shifts of three or four people, they are but free cities bound to break up, I mean a good mid-Victorian sized family of nine or ten having an obvious hierarchical age range of from thirty-three to sixteen years. In such a family, a typical middle class one, the older children are staid, married and ul- tra-conventional. They have, of course, a standing feud with the younger children. lf these are girls, 31111 flappers, at that., the feud is indeed bitter. Thus, the family falls under the two- party system. The first party, the Conservatives among whose members are mother, eldest daughters, one, two, and three and very prosaic eldest son, together with sister- and brothers-in-law and nephews. The Liberals count as their members Dad, baby girls., one, two, andfthe C. C. N. Y. man. The cabinet of either party is very unstable and ineflicient. It is often difficult to distinguish the government from the opposition. For, when the Conservatives are far from the family hearth, the Liberals are in power. Mother, when backed by her older children, is very dominant and waves the bankbook high above the heads of the subdued Liberals. She and the older sisters, who lost their kittenish ways long ago and have since developed claws, dismiss the antics of the baby girls and the C. C. N. Y. man. At the same time, lucky Dad, with two modish flappers perched on his knee, is permitted a peep into the mysteries of "frats', and other occult phases of school life. The Conservatives plot to undermine the iniiuence of the Liberals, who, they declare, flifting their hands in litter horrorl, are ruining themselves and Dad and Mother. Willy the solicitude is so strong is scarcely a political matter, but we feel it should be treated in an economic thesis. The Liberals scoff at their elders, who, in their opinion, are a set of dotards bringing up some pampered youngsters of no face or other value. ...80.. T H E M 0 R 1L1,5.e3,EllJvA,I1 Both Liberals and Conservatives are quick to dispose of each other's trouble, if family confalaulations may do so. They are dartlike in criticising und more sensibly slow at personal help. They have common grounds of interest such as discussing the peculiarities of Aunt lVlarie,s daughter-in-law. Indeed, in every possible sense, family politics is the father of national politics. Of course, not all nations, families l mean. have as rational a ,government as the one I have just depicted. Occasionally, you find a monarchy or oligarchy. Some- times you even find little anarchies. But, the real families, that are indeed worthy of the name, are liberal, constitutional mon- zxrchies hased on the two-party system.

For sixteen years she moved among us-a sincere, modest woman, whose manner was characterized by unfailing courtesy, kindliness, and humor. Behind that quiet exterior, however, lived a strong spirit which had a vital influence. Her loyalty, her sincerity, and above all her spiritual ideals--were expressed in a personal service that was unusual. She was an able teacher, but she was more: she was a true friend of every child she taught. Her ideal of service extended beyond home and school, heavy though were these double duties, and led her to take a great interest in truth and beauty wherever found-in science, in literature, in politics and in all forms of civic betterment. Hers was indeed a brave, well-rounded life. She has left us all the nobler for her presence and her inspiration. Helen 1.. Curtis, after years of service in the elementary schools of this city, joined the Faculty of the Morris High School, February 1, 1923, and died July 13, 1923. Her work was marked by keen interest in her pupils, and by loyal co-operation with her fellow-teachersg and l1er char- acter by gentleness, poise, courtesy, and high standards of duty and integrity. p 1 N , J J X , b J mi A 0 UW f f of aa f Hyman Alkofsky Stanley S.

The general interest is shown by the fact that Morris has won two state trophies and two city championships. A gold medal is given to the winner of the city championship, and a trophy is given to the school which is represented by that person. A four years, scholarship or a cup is given to the state winner. The success we have achieved may he considered remarkable in view of the fact that we have entered the Colgate Contest only four times. In l9l7 Archie Dawson won hoth the city and the stale trophy. In 1923 Max J. Rubin duplicated this admirable feat. In l92-l George Elpern won the city championship and will compete with representatives from New York and New Jersey for the final championship.

Again has the M. O. attained a very high membership, the Senior Class, followed hy others, heading the list with 100 per cent. memhership. This year, as before, the M.

Morris has retained a high position in soccer and in delsating, ln literary and ora- torical contests, the school has likewise taken the lead.

COUNCIL-MAY -94- THE MORRIS ANNUAL orris Service League Ten years ago an organization called the uMorris Service Leaguev was instituted in the Morris High School. the pur- pose of which was to recognize those students who had served the school earnestly and faithfully. Although then but forty- five members constituted the league, today it has become the most distinguished and next to the largest organization in the school. In most respects our Service League resembles the Arista of other high schools. To become a member of the Service League one must have rendered valuable service to the school and must have a satisfactory record in scholarship and conduct. To become a member of the Arista, one must meet almost the same requirements. Both are honorary leagues to which most students strive for admission. Yet our Service League is a more democratic organization than the Arista. Membership is not limited in the Service League, whereas in the Arista only a limited number of members are admitted. To become a mem- ber of the Arista a scholarship average of 70 per cent. must bc attained. Students not attaining this average are admitted into the Service League if their standards of service and character are high. The activities of the league extend throughout the school. In the library, basement, inlirmary, offices, gymnasiums and stock rooms, may be seen diligent Service League members. This assistance tends to instil a greater feeling of co-operation between the teacher and the students. Service League activities have grown with the school. Now that annexes have been added, a greater responsibility is placed on the Big Brother or Sister. These older students advise the younger ones in their activities and act as guides in their studies. During the past years regular drives for Christmas gifts have been held. These gifts have been sent to such places as Welfare Island, City Hospital, and Metropolitan Hospital on Blackwellis Island. These gifts afforded much happiness to those who were too ill to enjoy Christmas in their own homes, ' It would take too long to enumerate and give an account of all the activities of the Service League. It is sufficient to say -QS-- 'E- HE MORRIS ANNUAL that Service Leaguers have labored uneeasingly for the school. Let us hope that in ten years to come we may he as proud of the Service League as we are today, ten years after its founding. SERVICE LEAGUE COUNCIL Sept.

Its original powers have been greatly expanded and it exercises much more control over the student body than formerly. During the last year the squad has introduced a plan in the establishment of the Traffic Court. This court has full power to impose such punishment as it sees fit, on those who are reported to it. So successful was it during the term of Sepemberf-January, that the faculty has deemed it beneficial to continue in operation. At present the court consists of three judges, a prosecuting at- torney and complaint clerk. Not only is the squad carrying out its work in the main building but it is also performing wonders in each of the au- nexes. There are approximately 25 members, or, directors in each of the annexes.

The hoys of this squad take upon themselves unflinchingly and do well an important service to the school. Their work benefits practically every school activity. For athletic and other activities they print tickets, programs, posters, etc. For the office they print slips, notices, stationery. For the various departments, cards. notices and stationery are printedg and for every graduating class they print not only invitations and tickets hut the grad- uation program itself. The requirements for memhership on the squad are: il. A genuine desire to serve. Ill. T5 per cent. in each prepared suhject. Ill. A spirit of co-operation. The full iledged memhers for the term of September, 1923 to June, 1924- are: Louis Naideck Paul Kanter Aaron Kronfeld Maxwell Frank lsadorc Arsham Frederick Theodore Nathan Gartner The boys of this squad appreciate the helpful censorship of their advisor, Mr. Fink. -98- THE MORRIS ANNUAL The Morris Piper Breaking all records for circulation, the Morris Piper is ahout to experience the completion of one of the most successful years in its history. Wfith the addition of several new features and decorative headings for every feature column, as well as a car- toon of school life in every issue, the Piper stands pre-eminent among high school weeklies throughout Greater New York. Due to the efforts of the staff and the enthusiastic co-operation of our Faculty Advisors, Miss Hilker, Mr. Strumpf, Mr. Weizen- hoffer and Mr. Schatteles, this has all been accomplished. Let us hope that the Piper may always he as successful as it was this year. Sept.

Due to the co-operation and the patronage of the students the store has developed rapidly. It depends upon you., Morrisites, to continue or retard its success. Listed in the stock are such supplies as fountain pens, stationery of all sorts, Morris pillow cases, pennants and atllf letic material, all of which are sold at a reduction of 25 per cent. Supplies can he obtained before 8 o'clock, after 1:15 and between the morning and afternoon lunch periods. We take this opportune occasion to express our sincerest gratitude to Mr. Elkan, the Faculty Advisor, for his earnest co- operation and helpful suggestions. At present the following members are in charge of the M. O. store for this term: Herman Kornberg, Mgr. J ack Mayers Paul E. Kanter Isidore Engle Irwin Tannenhaum Morris Eigen - 100 - T.-E-L.LLfL.I5--,15-1 S A .N N UAA L The Bookroom Squad Several years ago, Mr. Cutler and Mr. Wllite, heavily bur- dened by the work in the bookroom, organized a regular squad to help them. Mr. Cutler, Mr. White and the squad have been kept busy, receiving books from the publishers, issuing them to teachers, making and keeping inventories. Today the bookroom has seen a nunfber of changes. Mr. Ketchum has taken Mr. White's place. Many books have been transferred to the department oflices, making the room less con gested and greatly helping the boys. The squad members are: 1923 1924 J. Schutzman, Mgr. .l. Engel Gartner J. Schutzman Arsham Gartner Grossman Arsham The Office Squad The Ollice Squad is generally considered of little import- ance, but in reality, it is one of the most important service divisions of the school. The members, almost totally unnoticed, render the school a very valuable service. The squad consists of six members, all picked from the Service League and in the absolute trust and confidence of Mr. Surrey and Mr. Foster. The members are: Sid Appel, fCapt.D Richard Helbig Phil Matlick Sarah Lessen Joseph Paltiel Miriam Sheftman The Sunshine Club The Sunshine Club is just completing its tenth year of ser- vice in Morris. The object of the Club is to aid backward pupils to help themselves through the help of their fellow stud- ents. Before this term, help was given only to individual students, who were failing in a prepared subjectg this term small groups are being tutored by the club members and the field of service made much broader. The club members feel that they are benefiting themselves as well as helping others by the work they are doing The club owes much to the ideals of service inculcated by its censor, Miss Baer. -101- 1srm0K-1zc uc1M SQLAD K , ,. if 7 Y. ir 4 - , Aj!,',:,: .-2,-:.'9f2 .-','?!, ,g':',: A .

From twenty members two years ago, to forty-three last year, we have grown to a club of sixty-tive members at the present time, making us one of the largest organizations in the school. We have an excellent record having sung before each assem- bly in the morning and afternoon sessions. Ten of our members sang from Radio Station VV. J. Z., and thus broadcasted the name of Morris. All those who have a liking for music are invited to attend our meetings. This club is the medium through which stud- ents who have finished the high school course may continue their interest and practice in music. Mrs. Smith. our Censor, is hereby thanked for her ex- cellent work and is credited with any success we may achieve. Junior Glee Club 1924 finds the Junior Glee Club all active as a force in the Morris afternoon session. The club meets for two periods every Monday in the Music Studio. The organization is small but very diligent. The choristers devote the weekly rehearsals to the study of four part songs. A concert is planned at which the orchestra. together with the Senior and the .lunior Glee Clubs will perform. Our hope is that the Junior Glee Club may con- tinue its good work for many years. The Mandolin Club An entirely new feature has made its appearance among the school, activities in the newly organized Mandolin Club. This club has been formed by a group of enthusiastic students interested in the plectrum instruments such as the guitar, banjo and mandolin. The Mandolin Club has secured the services of Mr. J. Rothaus, a Fordham graduate, as coach. Mr. Rothaus is an expert and well qualified to lead this group. The earnest aim of the members is to entertain the student body at assemblies in the future with old southern plantation songs which only a musical combination of this type can really present.

It has, up to date, defeated Evander and Jamaica High Schools, and lost to Townsend Harris by a vote of 2 to 1. Its victories will inspire renewed vigor, and its defeats will call forth greater de- termination to win. We greatly appreciate the wise and untir ing assistance of Mr. MacQuilland, and we wish to express our gratitude to him for his valuable services. VVe feel certain that the future team will emulate past teams in perseverance and sincerity of purpose, and thus we hope to bring back the coveted trophy to Morris.

Arnid the overwhelmingly large number in our school it is ad- vantageous to meet a comparatively small group of kindred spirits. These meet weekly in Room 218 to read bits of literary news, and declaim favorite poems. We are convinced that the combination of our enjoyable programs and Miss Burt's most hearty assistance, plus the en- thusiasm of the members themselves placed in the field two debating teams of excellent calibre. Our team of September, '23--January, 724 won the only inter-club debate which took place during the term. These gifted members are: Sept. '23-Jan.

Under the guidance of Miss Frank, the September term proved successful, particularly because of the debating team, consisting of Miss Salzman, Bernard Fleisher and Alex Fingerhut. The present censor of the club is Miss Saltzberg. In order to provide a means for satisfying all the varied interests of the members, many different activities are being engaged in at the same time, in addition to the usual weekly literary program. Some members are rehearsing a play, others are in debates, still others form the newspaper staff and practically all are pre- paring for the declamation contest.

We are a group of earnest yet fun-loving students, sincerely striving to catch a glimpse of the romance, humor and wealth of under- standing and wisdom in books. All who have creative and literary powers are given an opportunity to develop their fac- ulties through competition in short story and essay contests, declamation and debating try-outs. Branches have been formed in the annexes and in the afternoon session, and the spirit of the Alacris pervades every one of these branches.

The success of the Hatikvah may not only be measured by the membership of the senior society, but by the existence of a Junior society in the afternoon session. Movement is already on foot, for the organization of branch societies in all the annexes, Mr. Drach- man being leader in the Washington Avenue Annex, and Mr. HoH'man at the Hoe Avenue Annex.

Of special interest during the term were Dr. Sohon's talk on '6The Electron Theoryw, Mr. Dick's discussion on ulnsulinw, and Mr. Inman's explanation of '4The Chemistry of Human Nutri- tion", and discussions by the members on radio, photography and vivisection.

The club holds meetings every Friday. during the seventh period in room 415. The nurpose of the club is to further the interest in French, to develop some fluency in speaking the lan- guage, and at the same time give pleasure to its members. The programs consist of short business meetings, short plays, anec- dotes, music and gamesg each pupil having some part in the program. We are greatly indebted to our censor, Mrs. Price, and ex- press our gratitude to her for helping to make our club a success. The officers of the club are: President ..................... . ...,.....

Miss Gelber The Academeia Those who think that Latin is only the study of Caesar and his wars we beg to attend our meetings. They are far from being dull. We study the lives of the ancients, delving into the cus- toms, history, literature, and the mythologv of the Greeks and Romans. An important event of the year was the issuing of the Vox Academeia, the Latin magazine, under the editorship of Estelle Freudenfall. During the year, Miss Franklin, who has recently returned from Italy, has spoken to the club about Modern Rome, and Mr. Evans has also given the club a very interesting lecture on the ancients. The annual uspreadv was held last January. Both the Fac- ulty of the Latin Department and the members of the Acad- emeia joined in making the day a success. We wish to thank Miss Constantine, our censor, since not a small share of the success of the Academeia is due to her gener- ous and untiring devotion. OFFICERS Sept. '23-Feb.

El Circulo has proven to be one of the most attractive student organizations in Morris. Many members have entered and many have gone hut the cluh has not changed. The object of the club is to study the literature and customs of Spain, to develop fluency in speaking the lan- guage, as well as to give pleasure to its members. Our meetings are conducted in Spanish. Our programs consist of poems, stories, games and illustrated lectures on Spain and Spanish life. The Spanish Club owes much of its success to the Instituto de las Espanas from which we receive books, pamphlets and magazines. From these we learn of the great men of Spain, and of everything that is most interesting and beautiful in Spanish Life. However, our club would not be worth very much were it not for our censor, Mr. Reich and the officers of the club.

With the money appropriated by the M. O. the club bought slides illustrating scenes in Germany. The programs are de- lightful and very interesting, consisting of illustrated talks on Germany, short plays, readings from famous authors and of course the singing of German folk songs. Last year a very enjoyable expedition to Interstate Park was made and invitations from the German Clubs of De Witt Clinton and Hunter College were received.

YVith the hope of being a factor in prompting this spirit, and with an enthusiasm born of youth, a small group of students organized the Law Club. Every year has witnessed a phenom' enal growth in numbers, and a better spirit of co-operation on the part of the members, and consequently an increase in pres- tige in the school at large. , The gatherings of the Law Club held every week are per-- meated with an air of good fellowship. There students discuss the current topics of the dayg there they thrash out problems of international lawg there they listen to lectures delivered by faculty members who are well able to discuss social problemsg there new members are accorded a cordial greetingg and there friendships are made which will last a lifetime. The members of today are building for those who will fol- low, laying the foundation of an organization which it is hoped will become a part of the tradition and history of the Morris High School. B.

It has done some admirable work in the past. Among the plays which it has produced are 'LIle',, "Nevertheless", '5The Little Stone Housew, and the "Little Red Lampv. One of the finest performances ever given, was '6Pygmalion and Calatean, a three- act play which was produced after long and strenuous work. Last xterm, although no play was produced by the Morris Players, the cast of the Seventh Term Play, "The Turtle Dove", consisted entirely of members of the club. The success of this play was due to the 'co-operation of the members of the cast, and also to the successful coaching of Jerome Rosenberg, Presi- dent of the Morris Players. This term, the club has several good plays in the oliing. With the help of our new censor, Miss Kurland, who succeeded Miss Muccio, we hope to produce the best of these plays with marked success. -121- TITWE MORRIS ANNUAL The Poster Club Taking its place in the rank of one of the oldest societies in Morris is the Poster Club. For many terms, this Organiza- tion composed of students, aspiring in the line of Art, has served Morris, and served her well. Besides turning out posters advertising all the Clubs of Morris. the Poster Club fills out orders for the different de- partments of the school. lt conducts contests and represents Morris, not only within the school, but outside as well. A fine example is the good showing it made at the recent Silver .lubilee of this City, at the Grand Central Palace. The members are energetic and interesting Workers, whose sole aim is to attain perfection. They have been greatly aided by Miss Ames, who for years has been the censor of the club, and who has been directly responsible for its success. The Poster Club urges all students of ability to join an-il unite in serving Morris. OFFICERS Sept. 523-Jan.

At the individual tournament conducted by the Chess Club International, we entered four men, and three of these, Pimsler, Slessinger and Samonsky, successfully qualified for the finals.

Yet at the opening of the season the team was under a great handicap. There was no field practice and there was but one veteran from last year,s championship combination. As a result of the teamis faithful- ness and good work each member was awarded an Milli' in recog- nition of distinguished service. Let us notice the personnel of the team. The forward line consisting of Capt. '6Chink'7 Krawitz, uwlhityw .lanipel and Capt. Fleet 'GLou', Helshewitz did some of the teamls most sensational work. Their sureness. steadiness and scoring ability helped a great deal towards putting the team within reaching distance of the championship. The co-operation of and passing ability of our ends, Irving Richter, uCeorgie" Taifer and Lfloniew Himmelfarh are worthy of mention. 'fflhinkw -l:ll1f,'lllElI'l, ,lack Nathanson and Spolansky played a sterling defensive game throughout the season. They pos- sessed that spirit of ufighti' which was very often needed. Rosner and .Perry Shapiro were two very dependable full- backs. They were two good hooters and the team reaped much benefit from their driving kicks. Last but not least comes our reliable goal-minder, Ben Creeman, whose keen eye and alertness saved many halls from rolling into the nets The fine work of our substitutes deserves mention. Our substitutes were '4l.ou7' Schmidt, Birnbaum, Poakoff, .lack Mayers, Dorshefsky, Samuelson, Goldner and Friedenherg. L'Lou" Hclshewitz was elected captain for 1924 and judging from the material he will have backing him up, there is every reason to expect a championship for next year. "Doc" Golomb is to be thanked for his unsurpassed coach- ing and his friendliness with the players. e126- a THE MORRIS ANNUAL Credit should also be given to Mr. Bergman and Wrillie Homans who successfully managed the business affairs of the tealll- Summary of the Games wk Morris -.-- 'Morris . . . . .

F reider Kaston, Grenedier Football During the past season, the Morris team finished the most unsuccessful season in the history of Morris Football. Game after game, Morris went into with the determination to win, yet each time she was defeated. Ineligibility, lack of a suitable practice field, and lack of football material, caused the downfall of this team. Against De Witt Clinton, Morris showed its real form, when she succeeded in tying Clinton. The day before the game, five ranking Morris players, including Captain George Xan- tacky, were declared ineligible. This meant another task for Coach Dolan-to re-organize the team and uphold its morale. However, the student body showed the true Morris spirit, when they came out in full force to back their team against Evander, our traditional rival. Evander won the game only af'- ter the hardest struggle in the history of the two schools. Critics claimed, that Morris deserved to win, only the "breaks" were against her. Do you remember Birnbaum,s 40 yard drop kick that the wind carried a trifle aside to hit the goal posts? Although Stuyvesant clearly outclassed us, we succeeded in scoring more first downs against her than any other school in two years. Sol Johnson, captain elect, broke through for long runs time after time. Halpern, Luftig, Bokat and "Pete" Assarian were con- sistent and reliable linesmeng whereas, Birnbaum and Johnson were the mainstays of the back field. Birnbaum did the punt- ing, dropkicking and forward passing, while Johnson took the end runs and off tackle slants. Sam Katz, elected captain in the latter part of the season tcomes in his own as a line bucket and a long distance forward passer. -129- AFTIZRNOOX BASEBALL TEAM THE TRACK TEAM -130- THE MORRIS ANNU The Baseball Team of 1923 The Morris High School baseball team opened the 1923 season with practically no preliminary practice. This was due to the fact that the baseball season begins in April when the weather is generally bad. Ineligibility again played havoc with the team and "Bunny', Beal, the dimunitive captain, was de- clared ineligible at the beginning of the season. Mr. Dolan bravely tried to build a combination that would recall the past glories of our baseball teams. but when only 0116 regular from the 1922 team was eligible and in school, our coach had to ex- periment with 'Ggreen materialf, The fine work of G'Lou" Ader, our star pitcher, stood out prominently while Mayers, a recruit, led the team in batting with an average of 384. The managerial duties of the 1924 team were given to en- tirely new men. Mr. W6iHIHlll3 succeeded Mr. Dolan as coach because the latter wished to give all of his time to the football teamg Captain-elect ,lack Mayers was unanimously elected to lead the team on the field and Irving wvlll. Hest succeeded Mar- shak as Manager of the team. The team of 1924 won its first game of the season, defeating Haaren by the score of 4 to 1. However, it then met George Wiashington High School, twice inter-city champions and was defeated in its first P. S. A. L. game. One week later the Maroon met De Vfitt Clinton High School and defeated the YVest 59th Street school for the first time in 7 years by the score of 9 to 6. The pitching staff this year is composed of Ader, our ufour- fingeredn acc of last year, McGregor, of last year's champion- ship freshman team and Bosner of last year's outfit. The bulk of the catching will be done by Kornberg with Chodorkow act- ing as relief. Mayers o11 first, Laufer on second, G. Shapiro on short-stop and Wfeinstein on third make up the infield, while the outfield will be composed of P. Shapiro, Thorsland, and Vlialsh. The utility men are l.oewy, Liss, Richter, Hoffman, Birnbaum, Rosen. Track Team Due to the most unfortunate circumstance of last term in not securing an armory for indoor practice. llorris did not have a track team representing her on the indoor track during the past season: but with the coming of warm weather a squad of eighty men, the largest that ever turned out for the team in the history of Morris, began spring training under Coach Kraft. This squad represents every session of Morris including both the morning and the afternoon sessions in the main building., and every annex where boys are attending. 1 --l31- AL' PHI? CRUSS COUNTRY TEAM THE SXYIMMING TEAM -132 A THE MORMRIS ANNUAL With the aid of these training rules and the five or more veterans of last year, Coach Kraft will try to build up a team worthy of representing Morris on the Cinder Path. Wie believe that Morris has sure point scorers in Handels- man, for the high and broad jumps, Morganstein, Stark, Sosint- zky and Galub, for the junior sprintsg Slominsky, Adler and Nach for the long distance and Katz and Stallman for the shol- put and 440 yard ru11. Coach Kraft and Manager Handelsman are putting forth all their efforts to retain the championship of Upper Manhattan and the Bronx.

Adler Linsky Phillips Goldstein K The Cross Country Team The season of ,523 was indeed a severe one to the Morris harriers. Under the tutelage of Mr. Charles Kraft, Llr., the newly arrived mentor in Morris, the would-be marathons trained faithfully. Although they did not succeed in winning the championship, they did their duty, offering the best they had in them to the school. A team consists of ten men, Morris had but seven. In or- der to score, tive men must finish. Only once did Morris have the necessary five men finish. Evidently more men are needed. for the team. The school must take a greater interest in their teams and co-operate with them. The outstanding star of the team was Lew Sloane who con- tinually led his team mates in the gruelling ZVZ mile run. Due to illncss he was unable to compete in the Kirby run, so to Theodore Koslow goes the honor of being the only runner to finish in every meet in the season. -133- U., VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM gfvf Qsmfgfc as-'??ffff1 Tz?fiif iz f 43 x ftcy b-'v Qu , E If .ww Sv-4 THE TENNIS TEAM +134 A 'EHEMOVRRISANNUAL The Varsity Basketball Team The Varsity Basketball Team was one of the poorest teams that Morris has had in years. Despite the fact that the usual practice was held with the able coaching of Mr. Strauss, the sea- son proved disastrous for our boys. Teamwork and individual basketball sense. outstanding features in former teams, were totally lacking. Numerous shifts and plays failed to bring about a victorious season. The quintet was broken up by the graduation of three of the best men. Rosenberg, Lochansky and Berkenfeld. It was therefore necessary to transfer the two star forwards, Sam Liss and ',Shorty', Rosen. from the P. M. basketball team to the Varsity in order to reconstruct the team. The following veter- ans are left for the next season: Sam Liss, uShorty" Rosen. Canarick and Thorsland. The season closed with a brilliantly played game between the Varsity and the Alumni. The result of the tussle was, Alumni 15-Varsity 13. The manager elect for the 1924-25 season is Joseph Prim- ack, who managed the championship P. M. basketball team of the 1923-24 season. Line-U p R.

Freshmen, as well as with many others outside of the regular P. S. A. L. Tournament. Our first match comes early in April and the team will probably line up with Capt. Becker and Perlou in the doubles and Siskind, Honians and Rosenthal in the singles. -135- TH If RIFLE TFA M THE FRESHMAN B.-XSEIL-XLT. TEAM -136- THE MORRIS ANNUAL . Rifle Team During the last year the Morris Rifle tean1 has had a very successful season. Starting with a team of only two veterans, it has become one of the leading teams of the city. It has, in fact, gone through thc season without losing a single dual match. Among its many victims are such schools as Evander, which won the championship earlier in the season, Boyds High, champions of Brooklyn, De Xvitt Clinton, Jamaica, Richmond Hill, and others. The team scored the highest record made in scholastic competition last term, and this term has duplicated that en- viable record hy again setting a mark no other school has been able to reach. The team of September-Fehruary, was composed of: Jaffe, Phillips, Finkel, Brown, Culicover, Ancelowitz, Manager, and Aronstam, Captain. This term Yockel and Kaufman have ably stepped into tlee 'positions vacated by Finkel and Phillips. In Phillips, Morris has turned out one of the best shots in the city. He took third place in the individual shoot of the P. S. A. L. Meet, followed closely by Finkel, another excellent shot, who took fourth. Aronstam, Captain 'of both term's teams has been in high shooting form 'during the season. In fact it has been nothing unusual for him to take high honors in many of the dual meets. During the current season he has carried off second place among the individual shots of the city in the P. S. A. L. Meet. Ancelowitz, manager of the September-February term's team. hit his stride in tl1e middle of the season and since then has become one of the highest shots on the team. Yockel and Culicover, both new men, have turned out to 'he exceedingly line shots. Culicover has been one of the main- Stays of the team because of his steady shooting. Brown and Kaufman have developed into two splendid riflemen, always to be depended upon for high scores. Jaffe, the manager for this term, has been of great aid hoth in securing matches and in his ahility to shoot his regular score 'when needed. The team takes this opportunity to thank Mr. Bates, for the able manner in which he has coached the team during the last few years. and to express its regret at the necessity which causes him to discontinue his good work. Mr. Bates' place has been filled, however, by Mr. Read, who, no douht will produce the same high caliber teams that his predecessor has turned out. -137- THE MORRIS ANNUAL The Cheer Leading Squad With the exception of the captain, the team last term was made wholly of raw material. Nevertheless, with continued hard practice the squad was finally whipped into excellent shape before the beginning of sport activities. It was through the efforts of the captain that girls were finally permitted to try out for the team. They eagerly responded to the call. Six were finally picked. For the boys, nothing new can be said. They, too, res- ponded eagerly and six were also chosen. These twelve made the largest and best cheer-leading squad in the history of Mor- ris. The girls who composed the team were: Ruth Arkin Eleanor Hoffman Claire Kirkpatrick Pearl Satlin Sylvia Oholer Sylvia Ferstein The boys were: Morris Dulgov fCapt., s Louis Hosek Henry Scherl Albert Singer Morris VC'eincr Morris Lepler Hyman Adler fSub.l The team extends its gratitude and appreciation to Mr. Skeelc, Miss Knox and Miss Butler, the censors of the squad, for their helpful and hearty co-operation. . is -138 -- THE MORRIS ANNUAL Afternoon Session Football After a late start and faced by a hard schedule, the After- 11oon Session Football Team, had a successful season. On ac- count of unfortunate injuries to many members of the squad., the team did not do as well as was expected. However, it did manage to win a good percentage of its games., the most notable of which was the victory over the champions of Brooklyn., 6-0. After a hard game with the strong Yates Prep Varsity, the score ended in a tie 6-6. The team was ably supported hy Mr. Klein, our coach, and manager Zimmerman.

Basketball In spite of the fact that the Varsity teams of Morris High School seemed to be more or less unsuccessful in their contests of 1923, there was one team which was victorious in each of its contests. That was the P. M. Basketball Team of 1923. Al- though handicapped by 'irregular practice for want of a court, it turned out a championship aggregation. This was mainly due to the co-operation of Mr. Stevenson, the coach, with Joe Primack, the manager of the team. Of course the actual credit for the victories rests with the basketball Five which composed the team. Although team work featured each contest, there were two who distinguishd themselves by piling up the largest scores. They were Sam Liss and Nathan Rosen, the forwards., Both of them were later transferred to the varsity team of the same year, Sam Liss playing regular forward position for the rest of the season, and Rosen substituting often.

The credit for the team's work not only extended to the members, but also to the brilliant work of the coach, Sammie Samuelson, and the manager, David Davidoff. Much credit should also be given to Mr. Foster, without his co-operation the team could not have been as successful as It was. The founding of the team was a very difficult problem, because of the lack of good material, but by dint of hard work on the part of the captain and the manager this was overcome and a city championship team was developed. The members of the team were: Captain, Willing, Wynne, Leben, Sherry, Cohen, Tonisg Manager, Davidoff, Geller, Kaplan, Coach, Samuelson. -141- fruits MORRIS ANNUAL The Ice Hockey Team Due to the able coaching of Mr. Kraft. the hard work and good attendance at practice of the regulars. and the good work of manager Berson. the first Ice Hockey Team to represent Mor- ris on the rink captured the championship of Manhattan and ihe Bronx. At the beginning of the season, we had no glowing prospects. The team lost games because of the insufficient facilities for practice, but as the season progressed, and more practices were held, the players learned the more scientific elements of the 'game and succeeded in doing honor to themselves and to Morris.

The club has had a successful career from the very be- ginning. The first term, the members produced '4The House of the Heart" by Constance D'Arcy Mackaye, before the as- sembled Annex. Last November the club undertook to provide a Thanksgiving play for the school, giving 64111 Wlitchcraft Days" in the auditorium.

The club meets lYednesday afternoons. We look forward to that day, and once we are started on our work we become so interested it is difficult to make us remember that we have homes. The clubis present officers are: President ........................ ......... M uriel Llet Vice-President .,................ .... C armel Colicchio Secretary ..... . . . ........ Frieda Fordon The Biology Club The members of the Biology Club of the Girls' Annex have spent many enjoyable afternoons at the meetings of the club. One meeting was given up to slides concerning the beautiful scenery of the western part of our country. Another was spent showing the different kinds of fruit and how they grow. As spring has not yet arrived, the club has been unable as yet to fulfill all its expectations. The -members 'hope to go on many hiking trips to the country and learn all that is pos- sible concerning nature. Also there is to be a competition in the raising of flowers. As soon as spring, with its warm weather and bright sun rays makes its way to New York, the club hopes to have a beautiful flower garden in the school. The club is under the guidance of Miss Gluck.

It has a large and enthusiastic membership and much good work has been done in debating and dramatics. At Christmas time tl1e members presented a play in the auditorium and the audience most heartily expressed its ap- proval. Debates have been held weekly and decided talent in that li11e has been discovered. The Junior Denbigh has been in- strumental in interesting several schools of the Bronx in a tournament for freshman debating. All the debates held have been of il high order.

ANNEX -153 - N i TKHE MORRIS AN-NUAL Hoe Avenue Annex Yvhen, after the registration for the term of September, 1923 to January, l924, had been announced, it was found that the buildings comprising Morris High School were inadequate for the housing of the newcomers. it was decided that another annex was necessary. Accordingly, the top floor of a parochial school was secured. Mr. Appel was installed as principal. There were only seven classrooms for ten classes: there- fore it was necessary to give seven classes a morning and three an afternoon session. Still, even though there were no assem- bly room, no gymnasium. and no desks in two of the rooms, everybody tried to make as little complaint as possible. The school was soon started on its various activities. Mr. Kraft organized an excellent basketball team as soon as opportunity offered. In spite of the fact that its members had but one day of practice a week, and that not on its own field, it won all but one of the games it played. The members were as follows: Kinsbruner. fCapt., Schieder Handelsman Oustrowsky Koppelman Vfinter Halpert Calub Nickelides Galub managed the team. For the term of September-January, Failus was the third term M. 0. representative and Max Handelsman was first and second term representative. For the new term, however, it was decided to have but one representative from each annex. Gal- ub now holds that oflice. When the term of February-.lune started, it was found nec- essary to re-organize the Traffic Squad which had been, for the previous term, captained by Robinson. The team consists of: Reibman, Insp. Calub Charney, Lieut. Schor Pransky Rothstein Nickolides Coldiu Froelick Cross Eskenasy Modica It was not until the term of February-June 1924, had started that the Clee Club and Orchestra were organized by hir. Hoffman. The orchestra meetings are held on Thursdays, those of the 'Glee Club on Fridays. Both organizations are getting along well and there is little doubt that under Mr. Hoffman's direction both will turn out to be huge successes. -154- THE MORRISANNUAL Mr. Stevenson, a coach of many years experience has under- taken the job of turning out a championship baseball team for this annex. There is much fine material here and Mr. Steven- son should have no trouble in selecting his team from among the many candidates. Upon the recommendation of Mr. Hoffman, class 4-61 or- ganized a Literary Club. The officers are: President, Eskenasyg Vice-President, Schwartz, Treasurer, Kleing Secretary Hertz- berg. Meetings are held on Thursdays and Fridays during the lunch period. Class 3-61, many of whose members are now in 4-61, had the best attendance for the term of September, 1923-January, 1924. Every Wedncsflay, Mr. Hoffman gives reading to the boys after the sixth period. These readings are very popular, and there is a larger attendance each week. The annex track team is as yet in process of formation. Galub is coach and manager. The present members are: N ickolides Galub Eskenasy Moskowitz Goldberg Stein The greater number of the classes have libraries, to which books are donated by the- bovs. ln general, the rules are along the lines of the New York Public Library.

Mr. Julian M. Drachman Early in October the Annexites interested in dramatics gathered and organized the old "Morris Junior Players" into a more compact and efficient club under the name of the Freshn man Dramatic Club. Meetings were held every Friday after- noon, at first for try-outs of new applicants for membership, and later for the transaction of business and the enjoyment of a dramatic program. A new constitution was adopted, and ar- rangements were made for regular committee work. Two prepared plays and one volunteer play were given dur- ing the term. A very short time after the beginning of the term, a group of students appeared in assembly in a little skit entitled uThe Soap Box Oratorw. Carrying out the idea of let- ting dramatics assist in Civics work, the next play was "The Victory of the Good Citizenv, in which a schoolboy knight dc- feats several varieties of, rubbish. The antics of Banana Peel and his confreres, Newspaper and Nutshell, were much enjoyed. The third production was a little Morality play called G'The House of the Hearty, by Constance D'Arcy Mackay. It was per- formed, like the others, by a different cast in each assembly. By request, it was repeated at two afternoon assemblies in the Main Building. In the Spring term, Mr. M. Debower assisted in the work of production. At the date of writingh-March 20-no play has yet been given b11t two are in process of preparation: Stuart Walker's "Sir David Vllears a Crown" and "The Bearw by Anton Checkoff. The club is expected to eclipse all previous achieve- ments. Civics Council All the class representatives and Service League monitors are members of this council. Other members may be proposed by the class representatives and Service League monitors. This club is conducted in accordance with Parliamentary -158- THE MORRIS ANNUA1, Practice. Cushingfs Manual of Parliamentary Practice is fre- quently referred to and boys and girls look up any point in Par- liamentary procedure of which they are uncertain. The subjects in this club encourage the students to have an interest in and an understanding of some of the problems of their school and their community. The aim of the iclub is to develop an open minded atti- tude toward all controversial subjects. Miss Greenberg is the censor of this council. Girls' Basketball Tl1e girls of the xx73Sl1ll1gt0l1 Avenue Annex meet every Thursday at the Armory at 166th Street. March 20, 1924 elec- tions took place. The following girls were elected: Hannah Lowanthal, Pres., 1-35. Cicele Lipman, Vice-Pres., 1-72. May Poss, Secretary, 1-73. The Captains of the following teams are: Sophie Kinsbruder, 1-73. Blanche Sobel, 1-73. Mildred Stabert, l-85. Gertrude Bott, 1-85. May Rich, 1-72. Hortense Seldner, l-73. Under tl1e coaching of Mrs. Peck the girls are gaining every week. The French Club This club was organized in October, 1923. Meetings are held once a week. Last term at these meetings simple French stories were read by the various members. A short play called 'GL' Heroine" was also given in the auditorium. This term the club hopes to follow in the footsteps of the preceding club and will perhaps also give a French play. The offiicers are: Sept. 1924 Feb. 1924 Sam Barnett President Selma Fine Jules Hertz Vice-President Flora Butnich Sol Peterman Secretary Sylvia Goldberg - Censor ........ ........................... li Irs.

Pitman writers of extraordinary ability are every- where-too obvious to cause unusual com- ment. The great debates of Congress, Parlia- ment, the Law Courts, and general Con- ventions are exclusively reported by means of Pitman. Pitman writers serving under the Presidents have been so numerous that it would be impossible to capitalize any one as the subject of an advertising cam- paign. For students, Pitman does not hold out any tempting bait of "getting by without effort, in a ridiculously short time." These are claims which have always fallen by the wayside when Pitman is taught in competition with other systems. Teach your students Pitman and you won't have to explain why more than 9092 ot the shorthand reporters write Pitman. Write for a Copy of "One Hour with Pitman Shorthand." i...-.,- Isaac Pitman Ge Son 2 West 45th St., New York EAT AT THE FAMOUS HUNGARIAN RESTAURANT 4-ll East l49th Street Bet. Third and Bergen Aves.

Notice that our Annual begins with advertise- ments and ends with advertisements, very much like a winning relay team: a good runner first and a good runner last. You doubtless appreciate that this book could not be printed, except at a much higher price to you, were it not for these advertisements. We, therefore, want you to read them carefully, and wherever possible, to patronize these friends of ours-and don't forget to mention that you read their advertisements in the Morris Annual of 1924. We selected these advertisements very carefully before inserting them, and we are convinced that they are worthy of your patronage. This is a business proposition for you, for our advertisers, and for the MORRIS ANNUAL of 1924.
