With Our Alumnae
Mrs. Mary lillen Xlialsh Xlannix, one of the oldest and
most distinguished of the Klountain Alumnae, was a member
of the Class of 1862. Born and educated in Cincinnati, she has
been for many years a resident of San Diego, California. Xlany
of the former pupils have read in the .4:'r Maria of 1898 her
interesting story of The Four illaryf, the plot of which is laid
at Xlount Notre Dame.
The Sisters and Alumnae are proud of the literary success of
Nlrs. Klannix, and are grateful to her for her kind contribution
to this year's Nlouxrixix l.0RlE.
Qi? N compliance with your request to give a resume of
:gtg F gg my literary experiences, l hasten to comply, in so
far as l am able. I am also enclosing a little episode
Q of my school-days, which you may like to use as an
GF? "U , illustration of primitive days at The Xlountain.
faizzisswf My first published verses were printed in the
CllflI0!I'L' Teffgraplz, Cincinnati, they were to the memory of a dear
school friend of mine, who died when l was about thirteen years old,
subsequently, l was every now and then, a contributor to that paper.
After leaving school, l contributed to various Catholic magazines,
my first story was published in the Catlzoffr lfforfd, as were also two
or three poems which l considered among the best l have ever
written. VVhen l became identified with the flee illarfa, l wrote
continuously and profusely for that magazine under my own name,
and various 7107715 dr plume, often l would have two or three articles
in the same number of the magazine under different signatures.
Fiction, essays, reviews, sketches of different kinds, biographies,
verses, and translations from French, German, and Spanish, gave
me plenty to do, as well as a variety of work.

lt was the rejection of a juvenile story by the flee fllarfa, which
first brought me into contact with the Benziger Brothers Publishing
firm, l thought it a good story and l never could understand the
attitude of that magazine in regard to it, nearly all of my juvenile
stories have been published by the Benziger Brothers.
Years ago the Sisters of Notre Dame did me the honor to ask
me to write the "Life of Sister Superior Louise," which, l understand,
is soon to be supplemented by another containing a more compre-
hensive account of the labors and successes of the Order in this
In my own opinion if I have any literary talent, it is for translation
for combining the spirit with the letter, and falling into the natural
construction and understanding of the different languages. Of all
work that has issued from my pen, I like best the translations of
"Der Senger's Fluch," "Die Drei Studentenf' an adaptation from
the German, "Der Reichste Ftirst,', and "Toujours l'Aimer" of
During my undergraduate years at Mount Notre Dame something
occurred which may interest my young readers, an incident I have
Archbishop Purcell had made his periodical visit to Rome, and
Sister Alphonse and Sister lVIary, of blessed and happy memory, were
putting their heads together as to the manner in which The lVIountain
should celebrate his return. Suddenly, news came that he had re-
turned sooner than we expected, and would arrive at Mount Notre
Dame in two days! You can imagine the Hurry, nothing was ready,
nothing had been decided upon. Hastily Sister Alphonse entered
our classroom, took me by the hand and led me into the library.
"We have decided upon a complimentary piece," she announced,
"which you are to write, it is to be called The Rainbow, each color
representing a virtue in which mention is to be made of our affection
for the Archbishop, and one of the attributes of his saintly character.
It is to be in verse, with a prologue and epilogue spoken by one of
the girls who will wear across the left shoulder a sash of tarlatan,
of her distinctive color. The Archbishop will be met at the gate by the
first Angel, and at regular intervals by one of the seven representative
colors who will stand on the edge of the driveway, delivering her
little speech. At the other end, before entering the house, the second
Angel will be stationed. This is the plot, you are to develop it. Every
girl will have from ten to fifteen lines to recite, the parts taken by
the Angels to be somewhat longer. It is now four o'clock,'l she said,
"at seven I will come for the piece. Your supper will be sent to you
from the refectory. After it is finished, the different partsiwill be
copied and given to the girls before they go to bed. There will only
be tomorrow for them to learn and rehearse it, to send to town for
tarlatan and other necessary adjuncts. The poem should be about
one hundred and fifty lines. Write the parts out on a separate sheet
of paper, so that there will be no trouble about copying them. Now
go to work, child, and be ready."
With these words she left the room. Was I overwhelmed by the
task assigned to me, as perhaps was natural I should have been?
Was I dismayed? No! With me, it had always been the greater the
task, the greater the courage, and I went to work. My good Angel
must have assisted me, for I had no trouble in achieving the desired
result, one line followed the other, mechanically enough, I am sure,
but yet easily. My MCIIIOT had clearly defined the outlines and scope
of the work, and when seven o'clock arrived and Sister Alphonse
returned, followed by a little Novice with a tray containing my supper,
I was ready for both. She was highly gratified with the performance
and thought it both wonderful and beautiful. In my own mind,
even in those far-off days, it was neither. Later, at her request, I
gave the manuscript to my dear friend Mamie O'Shaughnessy, who
kept it until her death, when it was returned to me by INIiss Lucy,
and I still have it in one of the pigeon-holes of my desk.
There were very few school exercises at Notre Dame the next day,
which was a busy one.
On the great day, which succeeded it, everything went well. It
seems to me almost comical now, that at every turn of the winding
road, the carriage of the Archbishop was obliged to stop, in order to
receive the ovation of each individual virtue represented by the colors
of the rainbow, but no one thought of that at the time. He seemed
very much pleased, and in his usual genial and simple manner made
himself at home among the pupils, giving us also an interesting
account of his recent travels, and designating the morrow as a holiday,
to the delight of the whole school.
Finally, before his departure, Sister Alphonse led me to his pres-
"This is the little girl who wrote the piece, Archbishop, one hundred
and fifty or more lines in three hours, without any corrections."
He took my hand and making the sign of the Cross on my forehead,
"It was all very beautiful, my child, but do not be proud." Proud!
I did not need that warning, I was not proud then, and never have
been, because whatever I have accomplished in the way of literary
success has fallen short of my ideals, which always have been far
ahead of what I have been able to do.
Wishing your graduates a very successful termination of their
school life, with every bright hope for the future to become a happy
realization, I am

Miss May Kennedy, a graduate of the Class of 1900, is an
alumna of whom The Mountain may well be proud. The
number of offices she has held in the nursing profession, lead-
ing up to her present honorable position of President of the
Illinois State Nurses, Association, shows that she has given
her life without stint to the service of others. The work she has
accomplished certainly required a courage, determination,
understanding, and devotion of an unusually high order. It
has been well said of her that the fine contribution she has
made to Psychiatric Nursing may be compared with that
which Florence Nightingale made to general nursing.
,compliance with your request, I am sending you a
, 6,3l ,H :gmt sketch of my post-graduate career, which I do all
the more willingly because you Mouiitairi pupils
listened so patiently to the little talk I gave you last
Fall when I visited the Academy. I-ask the same
,.wQ , s, ,, LQAZQ Q-A indulgence for this personal letter which may seem
to you but a dry recital of monotonous events, though to me, I
assure you, this whirl of activities was anything but monotonous.
As I had always felt an attraction for the profession of nursing,
I matriculated at St. Joseph's Hospital School of Nursing in Chicago,
from which I was graduated in 1907. In the same year I was appointed
chief nurse of the Anna State Hospital for the insane, and several
years after held the same position at Kankakee State Hospital.
During that time, realizing the benefit of an advanced course of
studies, I attended the Ohio State University, the University of
Chicago, and Columbia College, New York, from which I received
the B. S. degree. Further studies at the Teachers' College, Columbia
University, secured for me in 1917, a diploma as Principal of Schools
When the World War broke out, I immediately volunteered for
service in the army and obtained leave of absence from the Kankakee
State Hospital. Thus an experience came to me which I had never
foreseen in my school-days, to serve overseas with the American
Expeditionary Forces, where I was appointed Chief Nurse at La
Fauche, Toul, and other military hospitals in France. Upon my return
from the war, I became active in the affairs of the American Legion
and was honored with the ofiice of Commander of the Berry-Copeland
Post at Indianapolis. During the year 1919-20, 1 was Superintendent
of the School of Nursing at the Indianapolis City Hospital, after
which I returned to what I consider my real vocation, the care of
the insane. I accepted the appointment of Director of the Illinois
State School of Psychiatric Nursing and in connection with this
important work have been called on in the past decade to
direct summer schools for nurses in diferent States. Three years ago
I was elected President of the Illinois State Nurses' Association,
a position I now hold.
I am sure that my old teachers and companions who knew me as
a quiet, unobtrusive schoolgirl, would have been surprised to hear me
lecture at various conventions and to see me act as chairman of
many committees. Perhaps they will be still more surprised to hear
that 1 have been called on to contribute literary articles to pro-
fessional journals. All this has been, indeed, a task, but it has been
a labor of love in my zeal to promote the cause of Psychiatric
Trusting that you, dear Editor, and the other members of your class,
may find your life work and that God will crown it with success, l am
Very cordially yours,

hliss hlargery Gordon, whose mother and aunts were
also pupils of Mount Notre Dame, was a talented graduate of
the Class of 1897. At an early age she became a successful
educator in New York City, where she has held prominent
positions in the high schools.
In spite of the constant demands made on her time by the
duties of the teaching profession, she found time to compile
with her friend, lVIiss King, a valuable anthology, entitled
Vern' of Our Day.
Several years ago when there was a demand for a teacher
of backward pupils preparing for high school, she offered herself
to conduct this class. That this hard task has become a labor
of love for her is seen in the following contribution which she
has kindly sent to the Editor.
All you folks are flatterers, I guess, or you're much mistaken
in this thing they call Hsuccessf' Don't you know that my profession
is considered very drab? just the average boy will tell you that a
teacher is a "crab," Now, a writer or a singer or an artist has real
glamour, but a teacher's just a person that the public likes to
When 1 was at The Mountain, 1 had many an airy dream, I could
see myself outstripping Shakespeare in the world's esteem, and
as Nathaniel Hawthorne tells of his famed Ambition's Guest-
I wasn't sure of what I wanted but I knew I'd land the "best."
Well! My best is in a high school of some several thousand boys,
and thfir best they like to measure by a maximum of noise! As I
write this, I am thinking what a funny thing ,twould be, should the
Sisters, my old teachers, drop in to visit me. If they'd see my boister-
ous schoolboys-Greeks, Irish, Swedes, and Jews-and the various
other nations-any one yould like to choose.
They don't curtsy in the doorway-they just fall right through
the doors-with an impish "Hello, Teacher," Cteachers, they all
think, are boresj. And they leap out when the bell rings and go
clattering down the hall, shouting, whistling, pushing, jostling,
caring not who gets a fall.
In the classroom they don't sit there meekly, as I used to do,
they groan at a hard assignment till at times the air is blue. Cohen
never has his pencil, Graziano has no ink, Farkas wants to close the
window, Hansen just must have a drink. How they love to tease
their teacher or, as they say, "get a rise." And for squirming out of
lessons, they've ingenious "alibis',: "I was sick", "I lost my text
book", "Didn't bring my locker key'!, "Had to do an errand, honest!"
innocently QFD watching me. But they'll work hard, if I make them,
and they work extremely well. They're just always eifervescent, and
their spirit you can't quell-not, indeed, that I should want to,
for their spirit's half the fun-but it makes me ever watchful, and
my labor's never done.
Yes-they're high school age-from thirteen up to full eighteen
or more, but with years, more tricks are added till they have a
goodly store. When I keep my sense of humor, spite of drabness,
I get joy from this never-ending problem of the blessed growing boy.
But you see I'm just a "teacher" not a glittering, grand success, with
a brow all wreathed in laurels and my picture in the press! Why not
page some other pupils of historic Notre Dame, who have followed
up their dreamings and attained the peaks of fame? What about
our Sister Agnes who counts talents by the score-and your own
Superior-I could name so many more. And for you and all your
classmates, may I hope that there will be glorious futures of achieve-
ment, and the palm of VICTORY!

Last lfebruary the Sisters and pupils of 'l'he Nlountain were called
on to mourn the passing away of lwiss Lillian Buerger of Reading,
who entered the boarding school at the age of seven, in 1922. From
the beginning, she distinguished herself by her dutiful conduct and
by her aptitude for all her studies, including music. On account of
ill health, she Was obliged to discontinue school two years ago.
Her wonderful patience and resignation during her long, trying
illness were most edifying, and her last days may be said to have
been a continual prayer.
Our deep sympathy goes out to her bereaved parents and family,
who must surely be consoled by the thought that their dear Lillian
has been transplanted to Heaven to bloom forever as a pure lily
in the garden of God.

Prophecy of the All-Star Class
Dreaming one day,
Vl'hen l should have been working e
Nly lireneh book closed in my lap -
A little man came
In an aeroplane
And earried me off as l sat.
Through the long years,
ln one minute he Hew
VVith nary a hum nor a haw,
And stopped in the midst
Of nineteen sixty-six,
Then left me to see what I saw.

Where traveled the restless Miss l"ath.

But after awhile,

The ear had reached the goal,

And I saw on the run

The best known of chemists, Bliss Schmidt.

Catching fish in a strong woven mesh.
Never onee sad e

There was a royal tree,

And around it there flew

W'hen I was but a child,
I chanced to wander in the woods.
Une warm Spring day
I mme upon a bush of rambling roses
Blushing like the dawn.
Alu childish glee
I pounced upon it,
And tore the blossoms from the stem,
'l'hen tossed them in the air
And watched the soft breeze lift the petals
'l'hen drop them to the earth.
Years flew by.
I grew to maidenhood
Vlfith all her sweet desires, and thoughts, and fancies.
'l'hen one day, I went into the woods
'llo meet my lover
Beside a mossy brook, beneath a willow tree,
4And on my way
I saw that same rose bush
Still blooming in her crimson hues.
I plucked one blossom from the rest,
And twined it in my hairi
To please my loyer.
Then old age came
Bringing peace, and rest, and quiet memories,
W'hile all the world was budding forth in Spring.
I roamed the woods
'l'o look and listen,
VVhen suddenly I came upon the same red rose bush
Still blossoming in perpetual youth.
I looked---and saw it for the first
HA thing of beauty and a joy forever!"
I stood enrapturfd by its lovelinessg
Its rich aroma filled my soulw
I thought of Truth, of Love, of Happinessf
I thought of God.

victory. For us, there was no sign in the heavens. Faintly we could
visualize the ladder of victorv which bes oke the merits and success

of our predecessors at The Nlountain. Every rung was difficult to
reach and meant a hard and earnest climb. It was for us to reach

tions, but with the aid of a "sister class, in vogue in those days, we
were soon made to feel at home in our new environment.
lylountaing we, too, dreamed Constantine's dream of
Our greatest Freshman worry was the numerous bells that called
us hither and thither. More than once we wondered if Poe had received
his inspiration for The Bells at The Nlountain. 'lfhey gave us no
peace, it seemed that as soon as ever we went up, we were called
down, when we got outside, we were wanted indoors.
Then, just as now, the days fairly flew, and May,witli the terrifying
C. U. exams rolled around. Sleepless days and nights, that seemed too
long, characterized these exams-one of the first foes in our struggle
for VICTORY. Even such joy-chasers as these come to an end. June
came and we were Homeward Bound. Was it possible that a whole
year had passed? How many steps of the ladder had we climbed?
It was easier to come back the following September. We knew
people and customs even the little eccentricities so characteristic
of The Nlountain. For one thing, we were accustomed to those un-
ceasing bells. As Sophomores, we were no longer moved to merry
laughter at the sight of someone dashing down a corridor carrying
one of those funny little medicine glasses.
We were still young, oh, very young, but naturally, one never
thinks so when there is someone younger to tease and worry about
alternately. Perhaps, you would have been stupefied, had you heard
some of the lamentations about this, that, or the other sad ordeal.
Maybe "pranks', was the closest ally of our Sophomore year. VVC
were always getting into some mischief. ln fact, we even got in the
way of the Seniors in their war for the basketball championship.
They won. We laughed it off, realizing that we were too young to
be trying such a prank. In a way, this defeat was a blessing, for it
infused a new spirit of determination that was going to be hard to
overcome in future years.
What fun to be hailed as under-graduates! Life appeared in a new
and glimmering light. We became so very dignified-so said those
who observed us in those far-off days. Was this a rash judgment on
the part of the accusers?
Apart from the dormitory silence, a hush in the chapel corridor
and the reverential silence of the Retreat, there was another silence
which we, Juniors, had to keep at certain exciting stages of this
happy year. l am no longer pledged to secrecy and can reveal all
I know about them-the parzies. "To give the best parties and to be
the most charming hostesses," is the maxim of every Junior class. Shall
I be egotistical if I say that our parties were a real success?
About Christmas time, that old basketball spirit flared up again,
but we kept it tucked away, until one starry night an anxious little
band waited for the referee's whistle which would start the action.
Vllith loud shouts and cheers, we were proclaimed "victors" by our
fellow students. To the strains of "Congratulations," we trooped
back to the house. Ah, what a feeling! Surely, we, as Juniors, must
have gone up the ladder that night!
Now that we have come to that stage in our lives when we are
called the Graduates, we are still striving for that victory which we
visualized, when first we started our careers in high school.
Perhaps the most ridiculous and apparently unnecessary thing
that we are doing this year is scoring ties against the Sophomores
at soccer. It has become the joke of the school, and I should venture
to say that it must be getting monotonous for our faithful spectators.
The hoodoo is only the fact that both teams are very good friends of
lylr. Determination. And you know he does insist that he have the
floor perpetually. But what of that? None of us bears ill-will toward
him. lndeed, some are even wishing that he would feel a bit more
friendly toward them.
l could go on indefinitely enumerating many of those little personal
experiences of each and every Grad, but no-they are stored away
in the memory book of our school-days.
New plans, new jokes, new pranks are half our fun even as Seniors.
VVC have our little arguments and brick-bats once in a while, but
after all, "variety is the spice of lifef'
For us the "30,' fades into oblivion, and we are striving to be
the "One" class. Already we have predetermined that when we
depart through the sacred portals of The lVlountain in June, we shall
be able to say, "In hoc .vfgno ziicimusfi

The Mount Notre Dame Unit of the Catholic Students' Mission
Crusade has always shown great activity and a real interest for
missionary work. For the past ten years the members of this organi-
zation have labored tirelessly to do their bit to help Christfs missions
at home and in far-off lands.
The Christmas play, The Heart Tha! Squeaked, given by the children
of the elementary grades, drew an appreciative audience on three
successive days and netted a large sum for the missions. The candy
sales and the Nlite Box collections have received generous support
in spite of the ominous Mr. D. Pression.
The temporal support is supplemented by the spiritual. The
striving for personal holiness is especially noticeable in the number of
girls who sacrifice their "long sleeps" to seek rest in the heart of
their Eucharistic King.
In addition to the many spiritual helps derived from daily Mass
and frequent Holy Communion, we all feel that the three precious
days of Retreat are replete with grace. It is during this time of silence
and prayer that we try in a special way to assist the missionaries.
Our Retreat master this year, Reverend Father Schagemann, is
himself a missionary. His zeal was contagious and after the Retreat
was over, we felt like missionaries ourselves.
To visualize the work of the Missions, in which each one of us
plays a part from afar, our Lenten assemblies are devoted to mission
lectures in slides and in movies. We owe a debt of gratitude to the
Propagation of the Faith for the use of its splendid picture, "Yung-
fingpu," which described the missions of northern China. We also
enjoyed the slide lectures from St. Meinrad's Crusade Unit.
VVhat a wonderful power for good have been the Crusade Units
of the United States! Through the years to come we wish them
success in their effort to achieve their aim:

I was very glad to receive your letter and thank you very much for
your kind letter. Since you say I should tell you about myself I will
tell you about my home. I live in Hankow in the French Concession.
Hankovv is very large city and many foreigners live there. It has many
large building like those in the United States. There are Wide streets.
I am the oldest girl in our family. I have four brothers and one sister.
My oldest brother went to England to study, when I was a little girl
and he was killed in auto accident. One brother is now studying at
You asked me how long I study English. I studied at different times.
For a while I was a boarder at St. Joseph School in Shanghai. Here I
learnt some English but because of the war I had to return home.
After war I attended St. Joseph School in I-Iankow. This school is
conducted by the Italean Sisters. Last year I came here to Good
Counsel School, and am in the Second Year of Middle school.
I shall be very glad to hear from you again.

Blessed Virgin's Sodality
"When in death our eye: are cloxing

The sodality of the Blessed Virgin is the oldest and most loved
organization at The Mountain. The pupils of the high school depart-
ment are admitted as members after a probation of two years or
more. How eagerly the day of consecration is awaited! How lovingly
and carefully each one prepares! How faithfully is made the novena
at the Grotto!
This year the beautiful feast of Our Lady of Lourdes was chosen
for the solemn ceremony of admission. Twenty girls received their
silver medals and chains as pledge of their consecration to Her who
said to little Bernadette, "I am the Immaculate Conception." Those
who witnessed the ceremony must have been reminded of that other
day in their own lives when arrayed in long white veils and carrying
lighted candles they received for the first time their Eucharistic Lord.
The closing event of the Sodality's activities, the annual May
procession, is the one cherished by every child of Mary. In hymn
and prayer they praise their heavenly Mother, the beautiful Queen of
May. The procession beginning in the chapel, winds around the
avenue, halts at the shrine of the Blessed Virgin on the front lawn
for the crowning, then returns to the chapel.
Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament follows. Then the procession
leaves the chapel in the same order as it entered. The beautiful
ceremony is over, but the memory of it remains down through the

This year the members of the League of the Sacred Heart are
rejoicing over the attainment of a long desired privilege-that of
a general Communion for all its members in our lovely Nlountain
Through the generous sacrifices of our devoted chaplains we now
have Mass on First Friday at a quarter of nine! This makes it possible
for all the day pupils to be present, it also gives the members of
our boys' department an opportunity to serve at Mass. While we
cannot claim such an honor for ourselves, yet we do feel privileged
in being permitted to answer aloud with them the responses to the
In addition to the general Communion the League members come
together on the eve of each First Friday to listen to an explanation
of the general intention recommended for each month, by His Holi-
ness, Pope Pius XI. As members of the Catholic Students' Missioii
Crusade, we also pray earnestly for the special Missioli intention.
At the close of our annual retreat the oflicers of the League receive
a promoter's cross and certificate. The rank of promoter entitles
them to certain privileges and pledges them to greater loyalty and
fidelity to the Apostleship of Prayer.

The Army of the Little King is composed of six regiments, called
from the virtue which is to be the distinguishing mark of the members
of each regiment, namely-Sanctitas, Fidelitas, Nobilitas, Suavitas,
Bonitas, Veritas Cin descending order of excellencej.
A regiment consists of oflicers and privates of three grades, accord-
ing to the number of stripes gained. A private is promoted to the
rank of officer on receiving a fourth stripe, and after a certain period
of faithful service may be promoted to the next regiment.
As the members pass from one regiment to the next their duties
and obligations increase. All the members of The Nlountain division
of the Army of the Little King began in September in the lowest
rank in the lowest regimentg so it is very gratifying to note how many
have risen to the rank of officers in the first or in succeeding regiments.
The weapons used in this Army are little sacrifices made for love
of Jesus, and trustful prayer.
A review of the regiments is held on the twenty-fifth of each month
fthe day dedicated to the Little Kingj. The ceremony of distributing
the decorations to deserving members then takes place, and the
review closes with a public Act of Consecration to the Holy Child
Jesus, and the singing of the Army Hymn.

The Raphael Circle is composed of those pupils who take private
art and those who compose the Commercial Art Class. Its object
is to arouse or increase in its members and through them in others,
an appreciation of the beauties of art. To attain this purpose the
Circle is making a study of a few of the masters of the early and later
Italian periods, of the French, Spanish, and American artists and
their works. This study is supplemented by listening to the Art
Appreciation lessons given every Wednesday over the School of the
Air. Every one is eagerly looking forward to the illustrated lecture
to be given by the art pupils at one of the Friday assemblies.
Of course, the study and appreciation of the great masters would
be impossible without the elementary study of the principles on
which all art is based. Therefore, the course in commercial art
includes as basic topics of study and work the following---technique,
figure construction, perspective, lettering, composition, design, color,
paper cutting, and poster work.
This last topic-poster work-has been very popular, clever and
well-executed posters for all the important events of the school year
have been displayed on the bulletin boards to the admiration of
all beholders. Prospective members for the Raphael Circle are to
be found among the pupils of the elementary classes where the
weekly lesson in Art Appreciation is eagerly awaited and still more
This year the annual Studio Tea, one of the most important social
functions in the school, was given on Armistice Day. It goes without
saying that it was thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. May the
Raphael Circle double its membership next yearl

hlany persons have asked us Where we got the peculiar name for
our science club. This query results from ignorance of Professor
George Sperti's experiments which led to the discovery of Uselective
irradiation." After months of scientific research and experiments
in the Basic Science Research Laboratory of the Cincinnati Univer-
sity, he and his colleagues showed how light rays affect both plant
and animal life either to increase or decrease growth. 'l'he General
Foods Corporation of New York has paid the University a cash
sum of Z300,000 and royalties for the patent rights.
Admiration for Professor Sperti is, you see, the inspiration for
our science club. His courage in undertaking the research work in
inadequate quarters, and his perseverance to the point of victory
are qualities we are trying to emulate. VVe are Working assiduously
in the field of beginner's chemistry. Our well-planned monthly
meetings have fostered interest in current science and made us
eager to do bigger and better things for the world and for science.

The Euclidians have organized their hlathematics Club to stim-
ulate a greater interest in the study of the by-paths of mathematics
and to emphasize its recreational values. As the human mind has
always found pleasure in puzzles, tricks, and curiosities of all kinds,
it is not surprising that the Euclidians have found such things a
source of interesting and profitable diversion from the daily routine
of lfuclid. '
lfach oihcer takes her turn to act as chairman of the committee
which has in charge the program for the monthly meeting. lWany
interesting games have been played and enlightening bits of infor-
mation gathered about the origin of symbols and various terms and
expressions used in mathematics.
In general the topics selected for discussion refer to the history
of mathematics, the curiosities of the science, and the aspects of
mathematics which connect the science with related fields. The most
interesting project of the year was that pertaining to symmetry.
The members of the club were surprised to hnd so many examples
of symmetrical objects in their daily contacts with nature. A Treasure
Hunt based on the Low' problems is being planned for the balmy
days of Spring.

tlt Baby Party
Rattles and dolls were scattered
es were the fashion of the day. Such
were the seemingly age-old customs in
order at the Baby Party which the
Graduates gave in early hlanuary.
"black and Alill," "l"arrner in the
Dell," "Round the Nlulberry Hush,"
and all those other song games we
loved so well it few years ago, were
played on that occasion with no little
enthusiasnt and vigor. :Xll too soon
the lied-time bell reminded us that it
was time lor us to put aside our child-
hood pranks and be dignified Seniors

Armistice Day for their annual social
event-the Studio Tea. They proved
themselves able balancers of trays
lilled with fruit salad, chicken and
cheese sandwiches, olives, pickles, ice-
cream and cakes. After tea all the
guests adjourned to the recreation

Notwithstanding the fact that our musical organization is in its
thirty-third year, we find it functioning with the same enthusiasm
which characterized its early days. Interest in the fine old classic
music has persisted, despite the inroads of the ultra-modern fashions
The musicale presented annually for the public is always eagerly
anticipated by parents, friends and fellow classmates. This year,
program notes interpreting the various numbers, made our well-
rendered November Cecilian especially interesting.
In speaking of the activities of our Cecilian association, it is fitting
that we say a word of thanks to the members of the orchestra. Self-
sacrifice to the nth degree is their striking characteristic and that of
their devoted directress. To each program presented throughout
the year the orchestra has added a harmonizing touch, without
which our Cecilian organization would not have achieved the success
of the present scholastic year.

The Cecilians are greatly interested in their young rivals, the
members of Nlozart Circle. Some of the youngest among them are
already showing signs of real talent. This fills the Cecilians with
the assurance that the fine traditions of their Society will be well
carried on by their young successors.
A unique feature was added to the list of accomplishments of
the juvenile music organization, when a contest was given in which
the little players were heard incognito, that is behind scenes. This
contest proved a splendid incentive to earnest practice, arousing as
it did, most enthusiastic rivalry. May the great ambitions and dreams
of success which the Cecilians anticipated be realized, so that our
little musicians may lead the Cecilian society on to YICTORY.

Piano-To Spring .....................................,., Grieg
The opening notes fall light and silvery as the soft drops of the
April shower upon the waiting woods. The melody entering at
first with repressed intensity, then growing in warmth and
feeling is Nature's song in the exuberance of her happiness.

Piano-Rhapsody in B Mirior .................,......... Brahms
Brahms stands as the foremost German composer of absolute
music in the nineteenth century. His rhapsodies show his rare
mastery of the technical difliculties of the art combined with the
love of poetic and dramatic tonal expression.

Yiolinse-J. FANGER, S. FRICKE, L. DUFFNER, H. KRELI,
Piano-Valse in E Minor ................................ Chopin
Chopin, the great Polish composer, is beyond dispute the
Tennyson of the pianoforte. The same depth, warmth and
delicacy of feeling, the same l:1I1Cl'lCSS of detail and exquisitely
refined temperament are seen in both.
Chopin's waltzes are I10t dances for the ballroom but the
emotions of the waltz-the waltz spiritualized.
-Piano-Chimes of Saint Patrickls ...................... Whithor1ze
The tumultuous chiming of bells high in the twin steeplesg a
great organ intoning the solemn Dies Iraeg vivid patches of
color stretching in rich patterns across the pavement of the
nave, dropped down from high warm-hued windows. And
always we hear the noble Gregorian chant, a Gothic column
of melody reaching upward to support the mightly dome of
sound of massive bells.
Violin-VValther's Prize Song ................... Wagner-W1'!helnzj'
ln the last act of VVagner's opera "Die lNleistersinger" takes
place a song contest. The young Knight lValther, by the sing-
ing of this song, wins the contest and the hand of Eva, the
maiden he loves.
Pianos-Romance and Valse from Suite Opus 15 .......... Alfwzsfey
A Suite is a series of compositions so arranged that one follows
the other in effective contrast of rhythm.
Tenderness of mood, serenity and unbroken affection are
expressed in the Romance.
The Yalse follows with a quicker tempo and a slight touch of
brilliancy expressive of unalloyed happiness, then closes with
delicate grace and tranquillity.

Thanks to the class of ,26, athletics at The Nlountain was organ-
ized and governed by a definite body, the Mouiitaiii Athletic Asso-
ciation. In this, the wooden anniversary year of its existence, we
look back with a certain amount of satisfaction on what this organi-
zation has accomplished, and we look forward hopefully to what it
may achieve in the next five years.
Passing in swift review the changes in Outdoor activities and
athletics we note that all playground equipment has been trans-
ferred to picturesque Maple Avenue and much new apparatus has
been added, that two splendid concrete tennis courts have greatly
increased playing facilities for tennis, that a running track has been
laid out just below the tennis courts, that a part of the vineyard,
which used to claim so many stray tennis balls, has now given way
to an outdoor combined basketball and volleyball court, and a
baseball diamond. The latter delights the hearts of our twenty
boys who now form the fast growing Boys, Department inaugurated
in the Fall of 1929. The former Minims' playground is now the soccer
field, where almost daily during the Fall season hotly contested
games are played.
The physical education program has been widened to meet the
State requirements in every detail. The pupils of the grades have daily
periods of gymnasium or playground work, while the high school
department has two fifty-minute periods a week. The physical
education program is supplemented by instruction in health education
and personal hygiene, so necessary in accomplishing the ideal of
"a sound mind in a sound bodyf,
The recent expansion of our physical education and athletic
programs is due in a large measure to the efficient and earnest guid-
ance of Miss Jeanette Kasper, who is now completing her second
year of teaching at The Mountain.
THIRTY-ONE wishes continued success to the Athletic Associa-
tion and hopes that by the time it has completed the first decade of its
existence it will have won national recognition.

ORATIO IN SOCORREM PRIMA IN SCHOLA HABITA
Pray, how long, O Soccer, will you continue to abuse our patience?
How long will these injuries of yours mock us? To what end will
your devotees display themselves? Do I1Ot the injuries of the players,
the bruised knees, the sprained ankles, the wrenched arms, move
you? Do you know that you are causing this great harm? Do you
not see that under our smiling visages a rebellion against you is
brewing? Which one of us do you think immune from the dangers
that impcril us day after day?
O timesl O customs! The Faculty knows these things, the players
feel them, nevertheless this heartless game continues. Continues?
It even gains more adherents, it singles out and designates each one
of us for some damage. We, however, brave sportsmen, seem to be
upholding our school if we join in the game.
Long ago, Soccer, you should have been abolished by the order of
the Faculty, the abuses which you heap upon us should be brought
against you. VVC have the complaint of the players against you,
severe and weighty. It is not the power nor the authority of the
Faculty which is lacking, it is we. I speak openly, it is the players
who are lacking! CATHERINE SCHMIDT, '31

How they clang, clang, clang,
In the icy air of morn!
Wliile our heads are full of sleep
And our beds we want to keep
To mend our nerves so Worn.
With a boom, boom, boom,
Waking all in every room,
All-who ask Jive minutes more in bed.
Bells, bells, bells-
Dilferent stories each one tells-
Different duties each compels.
What a silent place our school would be
If from bells it should be free!
Hear the long-expected bells,
Wliat thoughts of fun their sounds awake
In the Weary, tired-out brain,
How they loose the curbing reign
That youthful spirits
Long to break.
What a rush there proves to be
To straighten desks, rush out-doors, be free-
Free at last
Bells, bells, bells,
Different stories each one tells-
Different duties each compels.
What a silent place our school would be
If from bells it should be free!
Hear the ring of welcome bells-
Oh, what privileges their summons tell!
How we hasten to adore
Christ, our King and Lord.
On His throne above
Each voice which sings His praises loud,
Each head in deepest reverence bowed,
And as we leave Him-one by one
The bells are silent.
Day is done!

When I turned the first page of my 1931 diary, I little thought
I should be writing an editorial within the next few months. True,
in our Freshman days we had dreamed of the Annual that Thirty-
One would produceaan Annual which we hoped would startle the
world. But with the stock crash in 1929 and the subsequent business
depression, our rlzateaux en espagne began to totter.
What, then, was our surprise when early in January we were told
to begin to think of the 1931 edition of MOUN'I'AIN LORE!
Now, although an annual may lack many things, it has to have
an editorial. It always has had and it always will. And the editor
must write the editorialmelse what's an editor for? So prepare,
kind reader, to skip this page.
I trust you are kind. You must be to have persisted so far already.
And so, to prove that I am not such a poor ingrate, after all, I shall
warn you beforehand.
Now what is an editorial? As far as I can comprehend, it is the
one page in an annual allotted the editor on which to complain of the
lack of time, and the impossibility of ever having the copy ready
for the printers.
Now, I must confess that I have never taken my editorial duties
too seriously. Don't imagine that thoughts were attracted to our
pens as to magnets, or that money rolled in of its own accord, or
that we all Worked together as one person. Believe me, they did not-
it did not-we did not. But we did not worry or fret when there was
nothing special to do but wait. We just did something else-and
enjoyed it, too.
Perhaps, now that you have been given a glimpse, so to say, into
the inner workings of this Annual you will be a little more kind in
your reading and will want to read on until the end-even to the
end of the advertisements.
We are graduates! How very grown-up we feel! How intangible
that far-off goal, graduation, seemed to us when first we came to
The Mountain as wondering Freshmen! Only now, as we are about
to leave our beloved Alma Mater, do we realize that in all probability
this culmination of our ambitions would never have been reached
without the kindly guidance of our instructors. Only through the
never-ending assistance and cooperation of our dear teachers have
we succeeded in overcoming the numerous difficulties and trials of
our school days. Still, our seemingly joyous departure into a new
and interesting world, is not without a tinge of sadness. Behind us
we are leaving the dear traditions of The Mountain-to be ours
no more. Yet, in all confidence, we feel that the kindly instructions
received at Our Lady's Mountain will continue to lead us in after

I like to study in a big chair-understand me-not a priceless
antique-heirlooms are usually made of horsehair-but one of those
spacious products of born chair-makers-such as Morris or Cogswell
created, or any humble apprentice, with a high back to serve as a
support, or with its downy cushions and embracing arms, providing
an abode of peace to weary bones. I have a kindly feeling towards
armchairsesenile comforters-juvenile delights. I reverence these
luxuries of our time, padded havens of rest, and in a rocker, in a
chaise-lounge4Morris or Cogswell creation, I can conquer nations,

The siren shrieked.
The siren had been shrieking. Now the siren shrieked for the last
time. But the siren called no friend from the stateroom of Jane Adams.
She was completely by herself and despite her bravado, a sense
of mingled dread and loneliness began to clutch at her heart. Alone
she was facing the Atlantic journey, and alone she experienced the
dreadful loneliness that comes upon a person compelled to live
among strangers-although she had been in no manner compelled
to take this step.
Her course had been of her own choosing, and now she determined
to face her fate without Hinching.
She did not regret her action, but she did feel sorry that she had
displeased her parents. Displeased-a rather mild term-for she
had really aroused her father's anger to such a pitch-could she admit
it to herselfw-that he had disinherited her, his only daughter-his
Her parents belonged to the social group in New York known as
"The Upper Ten." They had planned for her a brilliant debut-in
fact, things had gone so far-that invitations had been mailed and
replies were being received daily. No wonder, then, that they were cha-
grined, angered-and her father almost frenzied. How could he break
the news to his friends? How could he cancel all the reservations
made at the Country Club, and how could Mrs. Adams, a social lion,
call off the many appointments connected with the young debutante's
trousseau? It was simply preposterous that one of the descendants
of the aristocratic Adamses-one whose great-great-grandfather
had sat in the White House-should stoop to work in the slums.
Vainly had Jane pleaded that the very fact that the blood of
a President flowed in her veins, meant she should be ready to serve
her country. Service, service-she must follow this urge, this noble
ideal of helping others. Her parents called this determination-
stubbornness-but she knew they were wrong. She must be true to
herself, no matter what the price. And since it was impossible for
her to take a position in the United States because of her high social
position, there was nothing left to do but go to foreign fields. What
country offered more opportunities than communistic Russia under
the F me-Year Plan?
But now as she sat alone in her stateroom while others were waving
fond farewells to friends on the pier, she wondered if it really was
worth while to sacrifice so much to follow the ideal of service. She
was tempted toano, she would not. That spirit of determination,
which had caused her classmates to dub her Rex in her Freshman
days, made her go forward.

"lWademoiselle, you have liked France?"
"Well, you know I never enjoy rain."
jane smiled at the porter. "Ah, but the people. Surely you liked
the French. Or perhaps it is that you do not know them?" "Oh, no,
monsieur. I need no introduction to the French."
As a matter of fact, jane had first seen the light of day in France,
when her father had for the second time been ambassador to that
country. Her French governess always spoke French, so Jane con-
versed with the rapidity and the very slight accent of a French
woman even when speaking English. The porter continued smiling
and speaking, and as he arranged her bags, almost before she knew
it, she had told him the principal object of her journey. The dark,
lean face of the smiling porter, in repose, almost cold and haughty,
registered no surprise on learning her intention, but the small, beady
eyes, always black and bright, grew blacker and brighter than ever,
while the white scar between them became more marked in contrast
with their pitch-hued darkness. Soon he finished and left her com-
partment, and as he did so, she wondered what subtle quality
of his curious personality had drawn her so forcefully, yet unwillingly,
to him. A while later the train left La Gare de Strasbourg, and Jane
settled back in her seat in a better humor than she had been in a week
previous, despite the fact that she was facing a journey, long and
tedious, through the miserable mining sections of Germany, Prussia,
Poland, and finally, of Russia.
At the entrance to the Red Square, the center of Soviet Russia,
jane was forcibly reminded that she was in a foreign country and
that the Kremlin dictators were supreme. Everything was different
from anything she had ever seen or experienced, and though accus-
tomed to changes, jane wondered if she could ever adjust herself
to her new mode of life. There was the allocation of labor-the
moving of thousands of workers from wheat fields to mines, and from
the agricultural regions of the south to the forest regions of the north.
There was the very unusual situation of having rubles in one's
pockets, but nothing on which to spend them, for there were no
commodities to buy on the local markets. And yet to save one's
money was not proletarian. Jane was told what happened to the
man who answered a government advertisement calling for loans
of money to the government at 9 per cent. His 10,000 rubles were
promptly confiscated as an accumulation of a non-proletariat! But
worst of all to Jane was the fact that no one seemed to know what
day of the month it was, for the industrial revolution had substituted
the five-day week for the seven when it abolished Sunday.
However black the picture which 1Woscow presented, Jane was
determined to face the new situation with all its repellent features.
On the way to the hotel she watched closely the people who passed
her in the streets. In vain did she search for the smart, well-dressed
men and women of an American city. The people who passed her
wore the clothes of workers, comfortable and useful clothes, but
with nothing luxurious about them. Of course, there were no silk
stockings, for they, too, were not proletarian.
Looking at the women she received her first shock. A tourist
at her hotel explained to her that a woman just passing, dressed in
khaki shirt and knickers, was the foreman of a construction gang.
Another one just behind her, wearing a red handkerchief, was some
high official, and her companion in drab gray, a factory manager.
Across from them on the other side of the street, there were two
women soldiers with the rank of general.
Having deposited her belongings in her room at the hotel she
sallied forth again to see the big city for herself and to become better
acquainted with it before she started on the work she wished to
accomplish. Turning down a side street, she entered a dimly lighted
cafe in order to outline her plan for the day. She seated herself at
a table so placed as to give her a view of the entire room.
A woman, sitting near the door, seemed to be another general of
the Communist Army, if the English tourist had been correct in his
explanation. Soon afterwards, a young girl, French in every line,
entered the cafe with an escort. These two newcomers ignored the
feminine ofhcer who seemed to be well known by all who had pre-
viously entered. Both seemed to be enjoying themselves and laughed
a great deal over their wine. They left the place with the same non-
chalance that had characterized their conduct the whole time they
were there, but the army officer, hardened though she was by Com-
munist service, collapsed in her chair. When she was revived, Jane
learned that the girl was her daughter. It was only then that she
fully realized what Communism meant and what she had to face!
The next morning, according to her plans, she went to the Melangi
Combinat, a textile factory, where she hoped to obtain a position
among the workers and incidentally to study them better. After a few
minutes delay, she was ushered into one of the offices where a short,
fat, red-haired man sat, almost buried behind the papers on his desk.
After receiving a few scrutinizing glances and telling him that she
was answering an advertisement, she was given her registration card,
not as Miss Jane Adams, but as No. 1014. Accordingly as No. 1014
she went to work in the factory the next day and for many days to
come. There were times when her experience seemed futile, but the
urge to serve made her take an interest in these creatures, less fortunate
As time went on Jane grew not only to know the people but to
know Communism. To her it had been only a vague hypothesis,
whereas to these people she saw it was no theoretical idea, but a
philosophy of life-a religion. Before the black and crimson tomb
of Lenin is a plaque which proclaims that "Religion is the opium
of the people." Here the people bring their children to receive the
baptism of the Reds.
Thus did she begin to realize the grim reality of this religion,
Communism. She saw it as an evil embracing atheism, international-
ism, and government ownership, and she began to realize that its
adherents were not fanatics as she had supposed, but greedy and
dishonest persons unwilling to accept responsibility.
Through the aid of the brother of her bosom friend she had secured,
before leaving home, a letter of introduction to the American consul,
but several weeks passed before she was able to call at the legation.
However, once having called, she was a frequent visitor, that is,
whenever her "fifth-day" holiday would permit.
It was on one of these occasions that she overheard a conversation
not intended for her ears. A careless butler had misunderstood the
consul's directions, and the wrong lady was placed in the wrong
room. Accordingly, Jane was shown into a room adjoining the study
of the consul. The transom was open, and at Hrst against her will,
then with growing interest, she listened to the following conversation:
"Colonel, let us sign these papers."
"But, Count, I have not finished the plans."
"They can easily be finished, can they not? Which are they?"
"The plans of Ft. McArthur on the Virginia coast. Ofi course,
I shall finish them, but I cannot say when."
"Will February twenty-first be sufIicient?,,
"I doubt it."
"Very well. You shall give me the fortification plans on that datef,
"You understand that it has been quite long since I have seen army
service, so of course, the plans may not be wholly correct. I doubt,
though, if there have been any fundamental changes."
Frigid and wide-eyed, Jane heard the door close. Her heart was
beating fast. A plot against her beloved country and the consul a
traitor. Here was her chance. She would sacrifice her life's ambition
to study Communism at its source, and go back immediately to her
country. No-she would not trust her message to cablegram or
letter. But she must leave at once.
just then the Colonel's wife entered the room. Jane could tell
by her conversation and manner that she knew nothing of what
had just taken place in the next room. Jane was standing at the
door with her hostess. The door of the study opened and with the
Colonel stood a tall, dark man with small, beady eyes, black and
bright with a white scar between them. jane thought hard to recall
where she had seen that face before. However, the rest of the evening
in the company of the consul and his wife was so enjoyable that Jane
forgot the incident.
The next day at the factory No. 1014 was summoned to the office.
There stood some officials of the Red army. Without any ado they
took her to a large administration building where she was led into
a small court-room. To her astonishment and dismay she was told
that she was under arrest for trying to turn the factory workers
against Communist government. When she heard the charge she
breathed more easily, for during the whole time, the incident of
the previous day at the legation had been constantly before her mind,
and she trembled lest those small, beady eyes had seen her eaves-
dropping. Glancing across the room, whom should she see but the
"Count" of the evening before. It was the same dark, lean face with
beady eyes and a white scar between them. The peculiar way he
smiled made her feel uncomfortable, for she suddenly realized that
this was no other than the porter on the French train to whom she
had divulged all her plans for social work. She considered herself
doomed now that she felt she had been the dupe of a Communistic
spy. And now she was a prisoner-a foreign spy. She knew Russia's
punishment for spies, the firing squad, or Siberia. With all her heart
she hoped for the former, for she knew that she had no one to defend
her. So this was to be the end of her noble ideal of service-an igno-
minious death-and the terrible plot against-her cool New England
blood boiled at the thought of the plot, but plan as she did, she guessed
it would be impossible to prevent the dastardly transaction of March
the first. In the midst of her musings the court was adjourned, and
she was led to a small cell for the night. That night seemed endless,
sleep was impossible amid the filth and insects that filled the prisoners'
My, how fortunate it was that she had kept her diary up-to-date.
Evidently the Count and the Consul also kept a European calendar
close at hand in spite of its abolishment by the Moscow authorities.
She laid her hand against her bosom where her diary was concealed
and wondered how she had escaped being searched. It was February
the fifteenth, so there would have been time to return to the United
States and get to Washington by March the first if Fate had not
played her this cruel trick.
But now there was no use-long before March the first her sentence
would have been executed to the last detail. She shuddered at the
thought of the treachery of the impending transaction, and her heart
burned within her to know that she could not prevent it. With a
return of her old spirit, futile as she knew it was, she determined to
give her life-her all-to America, as generously as her forefathers
had given their services.
The sleepless night at last gave way to a dull,cold dawn, a chilly,
damp February morning. A very meagre, uninviting breakfast was
brought to her but she did not touch it. She was still buried in thought
when the door opened and two guards entered and ordered her to
advance between them to the same court-room in which she had been
the night before.
There beside the Russian ofhcials stood the person with the dark,
lean, threatening face, with the ominous white scar. Jane steeled
herself for the worst. The 'fsmiling porter" was holding a muffled
conversation with the judge. This completed, he looked in her
direction-then started toward her. Her first impulse was to Hee -A
so much did she loathe this man who once had so curiously attracted
her. Her habitual self-control saved the situation. She faced him
coolly, almost boldly.
What was he sayingicould it be possible! She blinked harde-
yes, she was awake-and she was freelxacquitted through the
intervention of the American consul. She stood as if rooted to the
spot, but managed to mumble, "I thank you, sir."
Then the "smiling porterf' introduced himself as Count Karloff,
and offered to escort her back to her hotel. She thanked him, but
declined his company. She wanted to be alone with her thoughts-
she would have to work fast, for there were just twelve days left
before Ma1'ch the first.
On February the twenty-fifth Jane Adams set foot on American
soil. By the first available plane she made the trip to VVashington.
The next few days were spent in consultation with the President.
Maiiy wondered what important business this attractive brunette
had at the White House. Wonder gave place to indignation when
engagements and cabinet meetings were cancelled.
On February 28th, the leading newspapers of the country carried
the following headlines:
"RUSSIA THWARTED. Plot of U. S. Consul Disclosed by Jane
Adams, Social Worker."

Episode on Heels
Christmas was coming
And Mother had said
That Eppie could have what she choseg
So she asked for a pair of bright red shoes
With spiked heels and pointed toes.
Mother looked troubled
But couldn't refuseg
She had given her wordh-she would keep it-
But solemnly warned the foolish girl
That evil it was-and she,d reap it.
But Eppie was vain,
She would have her wayg
She WCI1t to the city to buy some.
She wore them to school the following week
Gleefullye-but insidefshe did sigh some!
She loitered a While
That she might be late,
And make a triumphant entryg
She hoped the girls would spy her heels
Which she thought were kindred to gentry.
No doubt you have heard how long ago
In the plays of ancient Greece
The high heel denoted sorrowg
So when Eppie stepped into the room
She for self trouble did borrow.
How it happened no one could tell
But down she came with a thud.
A broken hip, a bruised head,
The spiked heels shattered to bits.
Eppie was stunned but not dead.
The years they passed-and Eppie limped
Her humble way through lifeg
So poor, the Red Cross heard her 'peals
And gave her shoes to mend. So 'tis
True-This Eppie sawed on heels.

A True Story
For the moon is glowing bright
Let's go ,round the avenue,
Before Sister had time to seee
Four walls simply eouldn't hold
lN4ary and me.
Was the cause of our undoing,
The fiame that set our fate
And we ran, and we almost fiew,
ln a fierce, mad revelry
Flowed through our veins like wine
And filled us and thrilled us with a
A cloud, cold and dreary
Hid the bright moonlight and made
Remembered with a sudden cold shock
That we'd heard the bell ring and the key
Turn the lock.
Our gladness, our fleetness fled
And we yearned with aching hearts
For our bed.
lWore slowly than we had come out
We turned our wandering footsteps
To St. Mary's porch. 'Twas locked tight-
And lights were out and voices stilled
For the night.
We guilty two
To the front door fled-rang the bell-
As if by magic the door did ope and in
Witnessed our inward fall
And told us the Directress was
In the hall.
She was, erect and tall
We dared not speak for she
The stairs, with guilt-bowed heads
Only to find the moonbeams there
On our beds.

HOW A GOALKEEPER SPENDS HER TIME
"C'mon team, now let's get in and play. Don't let them make a
goal, nosiree. Whoops, that was a glorious kick-oil. C'mon, Jean,
follow up that ball. Oh, shoot, she missed it. What's that? What?
A free kick? For whom? Oh, for us. Whoopsl Oh-h, what a punk kick!"
Silence, during which time goalkeeper communes with inner self,
examines finger-nails, forces a lock of stubborn hair to lie in the
correct position and sighs. Suddenly-
"Well, for heaven's sake, it's raining, and right in the midst of a
thrilling soccer game."

But the age of long hair has passed away. That of shingles, bobs,
and wind-blowns has succeeded, the glory of the coiffure is banished
forever. Never, never more, shall we behold those pompous perukes,
those divers' periwigs, those bothersome hair pins, those combs of
beauty, which kept alive, even in peaceful times themselves, the
spirit of animated rivalry. Gone, forever! The unmatched style of
Elizabeth, the individual types of each country, the day of wigged
manhood and envied crowns of glory, are gone! lt is gone, that
powdering of hair in spirit of rivalry, fair ladies' crowning glory,
which inspired poets whilst it distressed its owners.
MARY ELLEN BARRETT, '31
But the age of short hair is gone. That of pigtails, waved wigs,
and fuzzy tops has succeeded, and the profits of the barbers are gone
forever. Never, never more, shall we behold those slim young things
swaggering down the avenue with shingled heads, those slow-witted
women with thinned-out hair, or those husbands, angry with their
wives' bobbed heads. The making of scissors, the sewing of barber's
suits, the sweetening of hair tonics, will dwindle down to mere
nothingness after this victory of long hair over short. All this is gone!
Gone are those new fangled bobs, those connoisseurs in hair-dressing,
but that which has taken its place shall live down through the
century, for indeed, it is a true victory.

But the age of "flapperism" is passed. That style of painted dolls,
abbreviated dresses, and wind-blown bobs has been conquered and
the "feminists" are victorious. Never, never more, shall we behold
that style of short skirts, that sight of autographed slickers and that
most undignified fashion of open galoshes, enthusiasts of the "Char-
lestonl' and of boyish bobs have lent themselves to higher things.
Gone is the flighty conversation, the wild barbaric dance whose
canned notes made classical Music hide her face and meditate sadly
on the follies of the younger generation.
MARGARET M. JANSZEN, '31
But the age of long skirts has not passed. That of short hair, of
superfluous lipstick, of perfumed powders has been forgotten, but
the style of America continues forever. Again, once again, shall we
see those graceful frocks added to wardrobes, those high waist lines,
those flowing skirts, those dainty shoes, which bring back, even to
modern America, the ancient days of our grandmothers. Yes, indeed
-they are gone-the painted doll of yesterday, the baby talk of
flapperettes, the girl of scarlet blushes and sarcastic smiles, gone,
too, are those too-high heels, which stamped a pavement like a nail,
that shortened skirt which showed no beauty whilst it showed the
knee, which shocked whomever saw it, and through which, style
itself, lost much of its meaning, by being deprived of its beauty.

AN ANCIENT ARTIST
Who trod across our native land,
Arms with paint tubes filled,
Sketched his outline on the ground
And nature lovers thrilled.
Holding high a palette round,
His colors he did choose:
Skilfully he handled them,
Not a tiny speck to lose.
Wielding a long and dainty brush--
Dipped in brilliant paints,
He started on his self-made task
To please the heavenly saints.
A large and vivid patch of red,
Toned down with verdant green,
A touch of deep, rich, cocoa-brown
Of soft and velvety sheen.
A splash of orangeee-a startling hue
Canary yellow and Midas gold,
Perhaps a touch of quiet gray,
And still its beauty is half untold.
The artist strives to make
Each bank of moss, each tree,
The supple, slender, silvery birch,
In perfect harmony.
It comes--the Windgit blows!
The picture sways and shakes,
The fragile, natural canvas
Into lovely leaHets breaks.
They're now but separate tinted things
lfluttering to the sod,
But our artist-he is quite contente-
His inspiration came from God.
Weeping April's here.
Rush from shelter-
April's dried her tear.
A Tanglewood Tale
HERE was not a GRAY CLOUD in the sky when
xjygfa Prosperxna left her mother to go down to the shore
blitfft' to play with the sea nymphs. Here she did not linger
long, but asked the nymphs to go with her into the
' woods to gather flowers and STREUBerries. The
f'5x?f,19 if nymphs complained that they would not accom-
pany her, but promised to wait on the beach until she returned.
With a light step Prosperina skipped off to the woods. The sun
was shining and overhead a DUFFn ER could be seen here or there,
but not a BUZZARD was in sight. There were many bees on the
Howers and Prosperina wondered if there were a BLAIR anywhere.
The scene was so beautiful that she wished she had a CAMERON
her arm so she could take some snaps of what she saw. Since she did
not have one she did the next best thing and began to pick the
flowers which were all in BLOM. When she had gathered violets
and poppies to her I-IARDT'S content, all of a sudden a beautiful
plant bearing a bright red BERRY began to JUTT out of the ground
as if by magic. Quite naturally Prosperina picked it, but when she
did so, the roots came up with the fiower and they left a large hole
in the ground. Soon she heard a RUSSELLing which grew as loud
as thunder, and then before she knew it Pluto, the king of the under-
world, leaped from his METZ-CAR, 1931 model. Prosperina was
admiring his car, but her thoughts were interrupted when the ugly
king OVERBECKed to her to enter the machine. When she shrank
back he began to coax and PATER, but she refused to go with him.
Then he put her by force into the car and drove off to his kingdom
regardless of the cries and protestations. Entering the underworld,
she noticed a perceptible change in the surroundings. There was an
unnatural gloom over everything, and to her great surprise, jewels
were scattered everywhere. She could not FATHom their value
and marveled at their abundance, but she did not appreciate their
beauty because she hated to be in the presence of this ugly person
even though he treated her FINeLY. At the entrance to the palace,
Cerberus, Pluto's three-headed dog, began to bark furiously, but
Pluto fondled his pet, and soon the barking ceased. Prosperina
had always loved the woods, and the flowers, and everything in
nature, but with all her heart she hated the dominions of the under-
world, and the palace to which king Pluto had brought her. The
gloom was almost unbearable. Oh! Why had she forgotten to wear
her little FRICKliy by whose magic charm she could have freed
herself from the captoris clutches? Awaiting them was STAGGE, the
cook of the under regions, who had prepared a banquet for his master's
new guest. Fortunately, Prosperina knew that if she ate food in the
underworld she would never be able to return to her home on the
earth from this NEWLAND. Accordingly she refused all the won-
derful dishes which the ingenious cook had prepared. This perplexed
Pluto, for he feared that soon the child would be a DRISCOLL, and
deep down in his heart he loved her because of the GLORIOUS
sunshine that she spread throughout the gloomy old palace. However,
the more he tried to win her the more he seemed to BOHRER. The
days passed into months, but still Prosperina took no food. She began
to grow more contented as a SITTASON of the dark regions, and
took pleasure in playing with the diamonds, and emeralds, and
rubies and RlELAGates which were scattered everywhere. There
were stones of all sizes, some being very large, almost weighing a
PEXTON. Often she wondered how they remained in their position,
but one day she discovered that they were KLINGERing to WAG-
NERites, small monoclinic crystals of mineral lluophosphate of
magnesium, these latter emitted a soft, yellow glow.
Meariwhile Mother Ceres was quite depressed over the loss of her
daughter and started to search for her, with her banner of grief un-
FARREL'Led. So dejected was she that she forbade anything to
grow. No flowers bloomed, no trees blossomed and no grain ripened.
All the earth became barren as if it were mourning with Motlier
Ceres. The animals, having no fodder, became quite BOHNE.
During her wanderings she came to a lowly cabin, very dark and
almost as gloomy as Pluto's palace. Entering she saw an old woman,
the picture of dejection, huddled in the corner, and told her the FECK
of her visit. f'Hecate, LUTZ travel together. Since we're both in
the same boat, we will be good sailors. If I do not flnd my daughter,
perhaps you may." Hecate, groaning as usual, willingly accompanied
Mother Ceres, and together they continued the journey. That is
they continued until they met Phoebus, the sun god. It was then that
Hecate returned to her home, for accustomed as she was to gloom,
she could not bear the sunshine and cheer which radiated from the
carefree Phoebus. As usual, Mother Ceres inquired of the stranger
whether or not he had seen her daughter. To her great delight the
young man replied in the affirmative. He informed her that Pros-
perina was at that moment living in the palace of Pluto, having
been carried there by force. On hearing this, Mother' Ceres began
to PRATO him to go to the palace to free her daughter. Phoebus
replied that his cheerful disposition could never dwell in the gloomy
palace, and that moreover, Cerberus, obeying his master's orders,
would never allow him to enter the portals of the underworld.
To her great relief Quicksilver, also called NIERCURIO, appeared
seemingly from nowhere and Mother Ceres now had cause for rejoic-
ing. No sooner had this sprightly young fellow offered to perform
the errand than he entered the realms of Pluto. The old king rec-
ognized this young visitor and welcomed him warmly.
While these two were in consultation, Prosperina listened to
another conversation quite different from theirs, but equally in-
teresting. Once again she was being tempted, but this time a butler
entered the room, carrying on his golden salver, instead of the usual
delicacies, a dried pomegranate, which curiously enough, was a
greater temptation to Prosperina than all the marvelous delicacies
put together. However, as the butler left the room, her attention
was quickly drawn from the dried pomegranate. To her consternation,
in the next room, which happened to be the kitchen, she heard the
cook talking to the Chinese laundryman.
"Now, furst put down der ARNS and lissenl Du bist in der kitskin,
not in der launtryf' .
HSCHUTTE door IMWALLE! BARRETT! den lock 'id midt
DOT TAPKE vich hang vORdEM ESCHE. Dat HIGI, Prosperina,

HAN I makes und fine sausage und K-RELLISH vat vill tempts
'er to eet. I KOETTER und GREINER und BAGGOTTW
Prosperina shuddered. So they were plotting to cut her to pieces.
The Chinaman then asked the German, "Whatee Pluto do TEGE-
DER to follow him to Hades F"
UOHE! HEEKIN do everythings.--But look vunce 'cause it'
SHARD to show annudder HEHMAN how to maik dis sausage."
"Vel, I hopes I no fail, vor if he SANDERS, die little MOLLEN-
KAMP away, der churely wud be un-HOLLENKAMP, und Pluto,
he 'ADLETA me feel his RATHV'
By this time Prosperina had grown quite weak and took the
pomegranate in her hands to smell it, but somehow it got too near
her mouth and before she knew it, she had bitten into the skin and
six seeds were in her mouth. just at this moment, Pluto and Quick-
silver entered. Being sharp-eyed, the latter noticed that the salver
was empty. Pluto, however, saw nothing. His face was wreathed in
frowns. He told her that since she would not eat, he was forced to
set her free, so that Mother Ceres would let the crops grow again.
Prosperina, happy in her regained freedom, bade him farewell,
being careful not to say anything about the pomegranate seeds.
As she left she heard the cook say-
"He ist ledding her go! Mine LOUISel und WELLING-ly!"
