A Drama in Three Acts. Act. 1. Time : Arbor Day. Place: Behind the Seieiitific l!iseuit Factory. THE day was as lu ' ight as a Senior ' s dreaui and the beautiful l)alm was as green as a Freshman. The hole was dug, the p;diu was set, glad hands replaced the earth and packed it tight. Songs were sung, yells were yelled, and Seniors were seen — to be pleased with life. All was gay and bright.

Time : Twelve hours later. Place : Same as Act 1. The day is done, the night has come, and the dread hour of evil charm draws nigh. Pale moonlight floods the scene. The doonied tree shivers in the sighing breeze. All is hushed and still. But hark ! A low cry trembles on the air. ' Tis answered. Benches and garbage cans catch up the call and spectral figures glide into view. They hold a minute ' s conference ovei- the lonely palm. One stands out befoi-e the tree; he waves his hand for silence; he lifts a glitter- ing tool; he strikes. A cloud obscures the moon and all is dark as a clink of metal greets the ear. A damp earthy suiell as of the grave creeps in the nostrils. The sounds continue. A pause. Heav.y breath- ing and straining muscles; a creaking wheel as of some goblin char- iot ; midnight strikes; the moon shines out; a whisk of wind and they are gone. A yawning pit is seen. Calaliastic and inartistic signs and symbols are diplayed. But the Palm — is gone 1 Weep ye, who loved it well, for who ran say when you shall see it moi ' e. Bo-o H-o-o-o ! (Curtain) Act. 3.

' 16. j ' |Jb?HE four short years have come and gone, to us S|p Like four short days without an hour to spare; ' For every da.y to us seemed half its length. So short the time since first we gathered here. Each year is likened to a season bright. In which we tilled and sowed and reaped until Within our minds and hearts we jdaced the seed We hoped to harvest soon in deed ami woi ' d. Then everything was new and fresh and bright And, as a plant that first begins to grow With feeble gropings upward toward the light. We reached for wisdom ' s wealth of truth and .joy. When Freshnuui young and green, as spi ' outing plants In springtinu ' lift their faces to the light To drink the dew of heaven softly shed. We eagerly did driidv from learning ' s foiuit. The second year a summer might be called. With springtime flowers blooming out in full ; Rut some were blighted by temptation ' s storm. While others failed and wilted by the way. The third year came, an Autumn, in its turn, ' Twas time to harvest all that we had learned. And eai ' e for future growth of blade and seed. That we might wisdom gain for future need. The fourth year. Winter, bleak comes in at last. And working, waiting, dawns for us the end, The springtime gone, the Autumn fields well gleaiu ' d Aiul garnered is our precious store with care. Our lives have grown enriched we know not Imw, From busy happy seasons of the past. Before us lies a futui ' e, sti ' ange and vast. We face it now with courage born of youth. — Fainiie Razck. ' 14. 17 hcfi tb? O 0at? THE great trans-Atlantie liner Washington slipped away iVoni her moorings in New York harbor, amidst a chorus of " good- byes " , from the crowd on the pier and those on board the steamer. Handkerchief and hat farewells were exchanged until the signal became indistinct with the lengthening distance. Among the passengers was a rather flashily dressed young nuui about twenty-five years of age. He sauntered about the ui)i)er deck with the air of an " Alexander the Great " " . In liis right hand lie swung a cane while he puffed spasmodically on a gold tipped cigar- ette. His cognomen was Lord Archibald De Ray, late of England, more recently of America, his ambition, to gain notoriety through a heroic act of any shape or form. For this he had journeyed to America, thinking America ottered more opportunities for a hci-o. In this, however, Amei ' ica failed him, so now he was going back to his native sod. The Washington was five days out and was now on the last leg of her journey. At last the liner dropped anchor below Liver- pool and waited the arrival of the pilot. The passengers were stroll- ing on the decks when quite suddenly the air was split with the screams of women. Every heart jumped to its owner " s mouth and every step was halted as if by magic. Away some hundred feet was a horrifying scene. A small ship belched flames while its fear nuid- deneil passengers crowded the rails. The life boats of the flaming ship were lowered and all piled safely into them and rowed away. Just as the life boats were about a quarter of a nule distant a woman appeared on the half burnt deck. She gave a terrifying look at the departing life boats and then shrang back. Her hands tore her hair while she cowered hesitantly from the flames and the bulwark, over which it was a di-op of thirty feet to the water. At last with one backward glance at the hungry flames, she mounted the rail and plunged feet foremost into the salty l)rine. In the nu ' antime a rowboat had api)roached the Washington ' s side and its sole occupant, a man, had megaphoned something to the captain, who was preparing to rescue the people of the burning. shi]i. This something, the captain communicated to his passengers and tile strain on them then broke, with the exception of De Ray, who paid not the least attention to the captain ' s announcement. They turned their gaze toward a raft on which was erected a huge sign. On the raft itself .stood three men, one looked as if he were describing a circle on the side of a cracker box while the other two iiawled orders of some sort. Lord Archibald stood nervously against the rail, intensely watching the launching of the burning ship ' s passengers. " At last, ba Jove, ' ere ' s my chance. I ' ll save the young woman from ' er watery grave, " he muttered, just as the deserted woman climbed the bulwarks of the flaming ship and jilunged over board. At this " i)sychological moment " De Ray flung off his coat and dived into the sea, sixty feet below. Xow De Ray was an expert swimmer, iiut that was the limit of his accomplishments. Straight he swam for the place where the woman had disajipeared, while he could hear the voices of the pass- 18 BM ' E AND CRAY ciiKci-s oil the Washington and the tliree nccupaiits of the raft yelling sonietliing iiiun1elligil)lc at hiia. Of a siuldeii. an unforeseen thing liajipeiietl. A man leapt from tile Inirniiig ship, into the water, neai ' where the woman was now afloat and spluttering for help. Lord Archibald saw the man as he hit the water and, not to be outdone for the honors at this stage of the scene, made an extra spurt ; a fraction of a moment ahead of his rival he grasped the hair of the fast drowning woman. He started to swim with his burden toward the raft which was then the closest object to him, when of a sudden his head received the impact of a sudden jar. Looking back, he gazed into the maddened eyes of his rival, who had just delivered a " straight from the shoulder " ' . His apparently exhausted " burden " suddenly " came to " " , and simultaneously both the rival and the res- cued proceeded to maul the rescuer, treading water during the melee. This was certainly a funny turn in affairs for De Ray, who was sadly receiving the worst of affairs. At last, well nigh exhausted, he turned and swam. His assailants then jiursued him, but his fear lent him wings and outdistance them he did. The raft was his goal, it being nearest him. On it now danced three crazy men, bawling something or other at him. At last he grasped the edge of the raft and pulled himself half upon it, more dead than alive. Immediately Lord Archibald De Ray was seized by the three maniacs and without any ceremony whatsoever, was spontaneously kicked back into the water, while one gave him this parting shot: " C!an " t you read English, you blithering idiot, " referring tc the sign erected overhead. " You " ve spoiled one of Pathe Freres two reel features. " —Jack G. North, ' 16. unriBF on ttjf ioutitain |f PEW red streaks across the eastern sky And spreads o " er the east like some rich dye Dispel the dim gray light of eai-ly dawn, . As if to bid the gods of night be gone. The canyons dim in purple shadows sleep. As though unmindful of the coming day ; While from the pine ' s dim shadows dark and deep A tiny warbler sings his morning la,y. A silver haze o ' er all the earth is spread. And echoes wake that through the night were dead. The dew-drops sparkle on the long green ferns; The hillside seems a lake of glist ' ning gems; The golden poppy to the sun her chalice turns, While hai r-bells nod upon their slender stems. The wild-rose sheds its dainty perfume ' round; A gentle breeze steals through the scented grass ; The brook glides o ' er the rocks with mur ' mr ' ing sound; The busy bees hum softly as they pass. Nature in all her beauty greets tlie sun. The night is past and a new day ' s begun. — Leona Armstrong, ' 14. 19 Jt Wasn ' t thr Maon T ' WAS noon in l;ii-tinville. Across her tlusty, uninviting main thoi ' ouglifai-f torrid lieat waves wavered lazily. Tlie iiot, mid- suniraer snn heat unmercifully ilown on the glaring, hot side- walks. Save for a horse stamping nervously, switching her tail and flinching her flanks at the hordes of buzzing, insistent flies, the street was desolated. In the office of the Martinville News, assist- ant editor Samuel Slai-tin scowled ii ' ritahly over the work before him. lie was hot, tired, hungry, and worst of all, nervous. The building offered little protection against the blazing sun. The air was stifling. liy the front window a blow fly buzzed. That increased his nervousness. The impatient horse stamped her foot and jerked at her halter, causing the ring of the iron hitching post to jingle noisily. The assistant lost his temper. " Why the devil don ' t the boss come back? He ' s been gone long enough for two dinners. " He threw down his pen and rose for a drink. The water was tepid, nauseating. He drew a cigar from his waistcoat and seated himself at his desk to resume his work. Again the fly buzzed; again the horse stamped. The assistant chewed furiouslj- at his cigar with a muffled curse, then again scowled at his work with a counterfeited intenseuess. The boss entered. " Samuel, smoking is strictly forbidden during office hours, especially during my absence. People will think that you are wil- fully disobedient. If ,vou expect to succeed as an editor, you must learn to abide strictly by the I ' ules of a superior. " Samuel Martin tossed the otfending weed into a cuspidor, the scowl deepening. He hated " sermons " such as his uncle was con- tinually giving. " And furthermore, Samuel, a successful editor never is im- patient or irritable. He must hold his temper no matter how humili- ating or obnoxious his work or dealings with others may be. " " Just for fun, " suggestetl the assistant, " listen to some of this from one of these manuscripts. This, by the way, is the sixth story from the same person since you started the monthly supplement. Here ' s the ending of the rotteuest, mushiest ' ' romance " I ' ve seen : " He looked deeply into Jasmine ' s soft, melting, blue eyes. " ' " Jasmine! Oh Jasmine! " sobbed Oliver, " my very soul will oxidize if you answer me wrongly. Jasmine, tell me. Jasmine, my own, tell me that you love me. Just say ' Yes. ' " ' And then upon the lovers rose the moonful and shining-sil- very through the upper mists. And that self-same moon, which, for countless generations has faithfully governed the waters of earth, l)eamed kindly down upon them, and the same mysterious power which so bewitches earthly waters, bewitched the lovely maiden, for her soft answer was given in such tones as are known only by lovers. T ' was a kindlier smile; a softer silver radiance that twinkled from the bewitcher ' s beaming face as he watcheil the two embrace. ' " The editor was furious. " Of all the rot I ' ve ever heard that ' s 20 BLUE AND ( ,RAV tlie I ' ottciu ' St and the inusliicst. Who in tlniiidi ' i- liad tlic Miidacity to shi|) us that ' ! " Tlif assistant grinni ' d triumphantly at his uncde. " A suceuss- ful oilitor is never irritable. lie must hohl his temper no matter how humil — " " Wlio ' s that from? " demanded the editor, fairly choking- with rag ' e. " Of all the — ' ' " From a Miss Jane Iloopei-. Poi-tland, Oregon. " " What! " ' From a Miss Jane Hooper, Port — " " Well, I ' ll be switched. " " Why? " " No. I won ' t be switched. I ' ll be worse than switched. Jane Hooper is my first cousin. " Oh, then, " said the assistant with sarcasm, " I suppose then we ' ll ha e to print it because of the endearing ties of relationship. " " The endearing ties of relationship be hanged. We can ' t accept such I ' ot. It would be idiotic. " " Send ' em back? " " And yet — and Samuel — oh hang it all, 1 suppose we ' ll have to print ' em. Her dad is backing — well — you understand — the new presses — we are a trifle in debt. But dog gone it. we ' i-e in debt to him, Old Silas Hooper. " " Then — then we ' ll have to accept this and pay her for it! " " Huh! We ' re up against it, " growled the editor, jabbing his hands in liis trouser pockets. " Sam, think. For the first time in your life think. To print that rot is ruination and yet — shipping ' em hack is worse. Couldn ' t we kidanp hei- ? Couldn ' t we kill the insjiiration of her ingeniousness " ? " We could encourag-e hei ' ingeniousness. " " What! " " Encourage her. Tell her she lacks training — experience — any- thing. Tell her she needs to learn of other spheres than her own — that she must travel. We could send her on a trip an ' while she ' s goiu ' we could think. We could at least posti)one the misei-y ' till the next monthly supplement. " " l!y George, Sam, I ' ve got it. We ' ll seiul lu ' r on that ocean trip your friend, the artist, is making. " ' Is Jane — er — Miss Hopper unmarried? " " Yes, and likely to })e for some time. She ' s past twenty-five. " The assistant grinned. " Art ' U fall for her. He ' s a genius, (ienei are boobs. And you know all that rot about ' fowl of a feather ' or something of the sort. " By Jove, Sam, you are thinking. We ' ll send Jane an ' her sis- ter Genevieve for company, on the same trip with your friend, and we ' ll tag along to promote affairs an ' — well, incidentally, we ' ll make ' em learn. " The editor grinned. " We ' ll make ' em learn that the ' silver radiance ' don ' t figure in love — that it ain ' t the moon. " The editor ' wrote: Dear Cousin Jane: We have received yours of the 14th and are delighted to note a remarka})le improvement over your first writings. Speaking frankly, cousin, we are pleased to state that your work shows signs BLUE AXD GRAY 21 of genius. However, we expect far l)etter and more polished stoi ' ies from you in the near future and, to liasten the improvement, we enclose a ticket and a cheek which will cover expenses for an ex- tended ocean trip, which we are certain will greatly lu ' oaden your now excellent knowledge of fiction. We remain yours ever — both in business and in friendship. The Editors. P. y. We hope your next works will l)e romantic, the underly- ing theme being " love " " . T. E. " Twas dusk upon the walers. Cape l ' lanco " s light house had just begun to twinkle, ])ithling farewell to the soutlibound vessel. All about the decks lounged the jiassengers on this sultry evening, an evening early in fall. Lovers strolled casually along with senti- mental gazes directed toward each other. Hilent, comfortiible look- ing gentlemen puffed contentedly at their pipes. An aged, grey- haired couple, smiles in placid silence. Yet among this peacefulness and piietude two men, one ith temples touched with gray, the other young and business-like, talked in earnest tones, unappreci- ative of the beauty of the scene. " We " 11 introduce your friend Arthur to Jane, " " suggested the elder, " and we " 11 see to it that (Jenevieve is so entertained that she won " t hinder the develo|)ment of their acquaintance. " ' The younger gentleiium assented with a noil. " Hut first we must get Arthur in a eoi ' uer and have a serious talk Mith him. Tell him of — " " " Oh, yes, 1 understand, ' " interrui)ted the elder. " Here he comes now. Leave the talking to me. " " A third party approached. He was of medium height, notice- ably broad. His first characteristic which would command the at- tention of the casual observer was the dreamy, far-away expression of his eyes and the sad drooping of his mouth. Yet his step was decisive, his walk athletic. " Do you know, " " said he, " there is nothing like an ocean trip to stimulate one " s artistic sentiments. 1 have already at least a dozen ideas for both pictures and political cartoons. " " ' 1 certainly agi ' ee with you. Art, " assented the younger num. " What do you think, Mr. Martin? " " " Well, to tell the truth, Arthur, I don " t go much on this ' artistic sentiment " business, although 1 do thoroughly believe that an ocean trip is exceedingly helpful to an artist and even more so to a per- son interested in literature. In fact I happen to know of a young lady accomi)anied by her sister who is making this trip in order that she may thoroughly fit herself for the world of fiction. 1 should like you to meet the ladies. They are personal fi ' iends of mine. " " Nix on that acquaintance business. I want solitude. Tve a purpose in mind and have no intention of wasting my time making lady acquaintances. " " ' You ' ll like " em Art, ' " assured the editoi ' . " Ask 8aiiiurl. " " I don " t think inui-ii of Sam " s judgments on such iiialtcrs. Sam " 11 fall for anything cute in iietticoats. " " " They ' ere both snuirt girls, " said the assistant. " Xone of that liuttei ' fly life for me. I ' x ' e got a pur|iose and T can carry it out onlv in solitude. " 22 Bl.ri ' ; AND CRAY ■ ' . (i v you look lu-rc. " " dciiiaiRk ' d llic editor, impatiently. " You ' re intending to make cartooning your career, aren ' t you? " " Certainly. And I ' m to l)e thorough; no haphazardnes.s. A cartoonist must l)c good. " " Ah. that ' s e. actly the point. Wiuit would you thiid of a cai ' - peiitel- who spent the hest pai ' t of tlii ' day in drawing | laiis when iu ' couldn ' t skillfully use his tools ' " " I ' d say he was an idiot. " " Exactly. And that ' s exactly the impression you ' ve made upon nu ' . Here you are planning a career before you know the first lessons in Life. You ' ve an excellent education hut no experience, not the least sense of ordinaiy judgment. " " Your meaning is vague, Sir. " " Well. I can ' t make it any jiiainer unless you say that you don ' t really know Life as it is. Your mind is narrow. You ' ve tiiought of nothing hut what concerned your personally. What you need is to broaden your knowledge, to know a little of every- thing. Your drawings show your lack of knowledge of human na- ture. They ' re mechanical, they do not reflect the work of one who l)uts his soul into it; they even advertise your lack of nnderstaml- ing. " " What you need is a knowledge of human nature. You sliould know people, people in every walk of life; get their ideas, their views ; know their desires, pleasures, emotions ; make acquaintances and, above all, cultivate that " self-magnetism " which captivates the friendship of those who know life as it is, who ' ve felt its knocks and ac((uired their knowledge thi ' ough bitter or sweet experience. " Learn of the woi ' ld and in so doing learn of its people, — the farmer, doctor, drummer, pugilist, school teacher; learn their views. I5e a good listener and they ' ll reveal their inner selves to you. To and they ' ll love you. Encourage them to talk — listen to their tales of woe — you ' re the gainer. " " I always did make acquaintances easily, " protested the artist. " Certainly at college. But look at this stout Dutchman puf- fing and panting along. How would vou start a conversation with him? " " Why T — T wouldn ' t want to talk with him; liut if necessary 1 should speak of — of the Aveather and — eventually offer him a cigar. " " Ah ! T knew it. You don ' t understand people. Whoever heard of a Dutchman smoking anything liut a pipe. Now here is an excel- lent chance to begin. Start a conversation with any one who is dif- ferent from vou. You ' ll never be a popular cartoonist unless vou do. " " T was (|uite popular at college. " " Yes — where every one knew vou ]iersonally. " " You were an athlete, " reminded the assistant. " Athletes are always jiojiular. " " And what resjiect do you expect to gain from the world at large .iust because you are athletic? " demanded the editor. " Do you think mere endurance in a mile race will gain popu- larity? Why, man. a jackass has endurance. Ts a .jackass to be re- spected? No — but his heels are. not his personality. " " By Jove, Martin, T believe you are right. " " 1 know I ' m right. Begin now. It ' s half a man ' s education BLUE AND GRAY 23 can start you in hy introducing you to the ladies whom I men- tioned. They are probably in tiie l)all room; the music has liegun. Xow. tlien, a few pointers. Flattery, in a good many instances, is an excellent helj). To demonstrate I ' ll instruct you and Sam what to do. Xow Sam is ([uite handy as a talker, so I ' ll have him break the ice. The elder girl is the one with whom you should talk; she is an authoress — in a different line from you. She doesn ' t dance, yet she would blush with pleasure if she were asked. Sam, you ask her to dance after you inti ' oduce Arthni ' , just to show what flattery will do. Understand? " " We understand, " and the trio left for the l)all room. The editor looked intei ' estcdiy on as the two younger men pro- ceeded toward the ladies. " Gee! The younger one is a peach, " exclaimed the artist in an undertone. " Why in the dickens doesn ' t she write? " " Never mind the looks, mind the intellect. " " Ah! Good evening. Ladies. " " Good evening, Mr. JIartin, " they smiled. " I should like to acquaint you with a college friend, Mr. Arthur Collins. Collins, Misses Jane and Genevieve Hooper. " The usual light just-after-acquaintance-remarks followed, such as concerning the weather, trip, and the delightfulness of — etc. The assistant glanced concernedly at his companion, who was making poor progress with conversation with Miss Jane. " Miss Jane, " said lie imploringly, " may I enjoy one of the profoundest of pleasures — that of dancing with you ' ? ' ' To his unspeakable embarrassment and amazement slie nodded delightedly, rose and began tapping her foot in time with the rliytlniuc music. She took his arm and assurance that he felt faint ;ind dizzy in spite of his healthy robust youth. Filled with anger,, and embarrassment he took her, as soon as he could courteously do so, to her seat. To his further humiliation his friend and Jliss Genevieve had gone to the deck. An hour later, tilled with I ' emorse, he left hei ' and went to his state room, which he and his uncle had shared together. " I thot you said Jliss Jane di ln ' t dance, " he accused his uncle. " She didn ' t, when T saw her last. " Then sarcastically, " but Geniis learn quickly. " ' Twas early the following moi-ning that the worried artist con- fronted the assistant editor. " I thought your uncle said Miss Jane didn ' t dance? " " She didn ' t, but Geniis learn quickly. T thought you didn ' t dance. I ' ve heard you say it was a waste of time. " " I learned exceptionally (piickly. l y Jove! old iiuin, maybe — maybe I ' m a — " " Collins, you ' re an ass, a pei ' fect ass. I wanted you to talk with Miss Jane. " " But you said she was an authoress. That ' s too nearly like me because I, too, am interested in literature.

Besides you might iiavr shown hri ' eourtesy by not leaving as you did. " " Miss Genevieve suggested it. She wanted to watch the union rise. Jt was full last night and looked like a silver dollar. Say, do you know, old man, I ' ve always considered myself fairly sensible ovei ' women, but now — I ' m fairly insane and feel as romantic as a lovesick school boy. I ' ve often heard that the ocean and ronumtie circumstances — say 1 wonder — I wonder if it could have lieen that silvery moon ! ' ' " 0 darn, " growled the assistant. For three successive evenings Samuel Martin, assistant editor for the Martinville News, alternately cursed his friend of artistic temperament and danced with Miss Jane Hooper. On the fourth evening he was inditt ' erent ; on the fifth, interested. He w as now impatiently awaiting the arrival of the sixth. From the ship ' s librarian he had purchased a book containing advice to young novel- ists, through wliich he I ' unnnaged, cramming his restless memory with knowledge which he thought might l)e useful in his talks with the authoress. So far during the voyage she had not mentioned the subject of literature. He hoped she would never mention it, yet he was determined to pi-epare himself for the worst. He was to meet her at eight. The hands of his watch marked seven-thirty. He scowled irritably as the little minute luind ticked off, with slow hesitating ticks, the dragging seconds. He again brushed his neatly parted hair, hitched his tie, arranged his scarf pin, and during his anxious waiting, utterly forgot to curse Collins. " Engagement, Samuel? " asked the editor. " Yes, for the entire evening. " " I asked Arthur in for a game of pinochle but he, too, has an engagement. I supjiose things are running smoothly. " ' ' Perfectly. " I suppose he is teaching her to draw. " " Ves. Arthur says she learns (piickly. " The editor grinned. " Birds of a feather, y ' know. I said she was a genius. " " Vou said Miss Jane was, not Miss Genevieve. " " I ' m speaking of Jane. " " But he ' s not teaching Miss Jane. Miss Genevieve ' s his pupil. " " What! " " He ' s teaching Miss Genevieve. They ' re uji on the deck draw- ing the moon and clouds. " " O the idiot, the blundei ' ing hypocrite! Wiiat ' s got into him? And you, you infernal parasite, whom are you to meet?

Across her dusty, uninviting main thoroughfare torrid heat waves wavered lazily. Save for a horse seamping nervously, switching her tail and flinching her flanks at editor Samuel Martin produced a letter from the pocket and tore the insistent flies that |)estered her with tantalizing buzzing, the street was desolated.

T tELL, girls, draw up your eluiirs aucl while the water ])oils for tea I ' ll tell you all about my latest escapade. No, " " S dly, I didn ' t go to the seashore and fall in. Jt was fai ' more exciting than that. 1 ' 11 just tell the maid not to wait any long- er. I give her every afternoon off now, since my latest adventure. I feel so sorry for any servant. There, everything is ready now and I can begin. " " Well, about tiiree weeks ago Anne Remmington dropped into tea, and, as usual, the Di ' aper twins were with hei ' . We all got to talk- ing altout Servants (I have a new maid aiul she is a dream), and the girls laughed at me lieeause 1 did ' at think they had to work so very hard and couldn ' t see why they were always so grouchy. Finally, Anne said she would wager me a dozen pairs of gloves that 1 couldn ' t keep a position as parlor maid for two weeks. Of course, I had to take it. She was to provide the place and I was to hold it for two weeks. That ' s the way it started. " " The next day Anne came along with a bunch of references to a friend in New York, and, as 1 had i)lanned a little trip to Philadel- phia and since 1 knew mother would never know where I really was, I just packed a suit-case of borroweil things and set off. It was too funny! How 1 looked! My hat belonged to Katie, the parlor maid, and I borrowed Janet Draper ' s slumming suit. It didn ' t fit very well; but, of course, that didn ' t make any difference for a servant generally doesn ' t wear a tailored suit. At any rate T reached Xew York. It was about three in the afternoon and I thought I ' d better go to Mrs. Marden ' s right away. She was in. so I was ushered into the library and sent my references up to her. I had scarcely time to turn around before she came in. I never expected her to look the way she did. Really, girls, she was quite young and had on the dearest dress ! I want one like it, it was grey wool crepe and was ti-immed — All right, Madge, I ' ll go on with the story. " " Well, she asked me all sorts of (juestions as to why T left my last place — as if I ever had one — and why I came to Xew York and things of that sort. At last she said that she guessed she would try me, since Anne had sent such fine i-efei ' ences. She ' s an old friend of Anne ' s. " " When I came down again she was all excited. She had had a letter from Mr. Marsden telling her that a friend of his would come in on the afternoon train, and that she would have to entertain him overnight. He, himself, couldn ' t come home until the next day. This friend was a college professor and had all sorts of dreadful de- grees and such things. " She simply had to go to a tea and left me in charge, after tele- phoning to her sister to come to the house. As she went out she turned and said to me: ' If an agent should come here this afternoon tell him to come again next week. I simply can ' t be bothered with him today and Mr. Marsden will be here tlien. ' " " Then she left and I sorted magazines for a while; but I must BLUE AND C,RA 29 have dozed off in luy anu-ehaii ' . Anyhow, suddt-nly I heard tlie door-bell ring and I jumped up in a hurry. There stood a man. Of course, 1 thought he was the man Mr. Marsden had sent, so I invited him in as nicely as I could and gave all of Mrs. Marsden ' s excuses. He seemed astonished and tried to stop me once or twice to tell me he wasn ' t expected, l)ut 1 insisted, so he follewed me in, meekly enough, and I deposited him hag and baggage in the best bedroom, as nice as you please. Well. I had hardly I ' eached the library until that bell rang again and I hustled to the iloor again. Xaturally. 1 thought this man was the agent, so 1 said as eiisply as possible, for 1 wanted to get rid of him : ' ' " How do you do? Mrs. Marsden left woi ' d that you were to come again next week. " " Then he said: ' But — er — Mrs. JMarsden is expecting me. ' " I replied more cooly than before, ' Airs. Slai ' sden is not at home and she left word for you to call again. " " He really did not know what to think and hesitated as he said: ' Mrs. Marsden asked me to come today and — ' " But 1 interrupted him again, ' 1 tell you Mrs. ] Iarsden can ' t be l)othered with you today, so you might as well go. ' " That struck him funnier than ever and he said: " But sui ' ely there is some mistake. You can ' t mean that — ' " Just then jMrs. jMarden ' s sister came along in time to rescue us and what do yo i think? That agent was Dr. Cathers, the profes- sor! Well, here 1 had already put one man in the guest room as the guest so 1 didn ' t know what to do. I yelled, ' Burglars ' , and started up the stairs, colliding with the other man coming down. " He cried, ' Jean! ' and she ' Bob! ' and they embraced. " " I had made the most terrible mistake ever ! Here the first man was Mrs. Marsden ' s brother, who had come unexpectedly, and the last was the guest. Well I just naturally sat down on the steps and Wept. Of course. Mi ' . Woodsby, that ' s the brother, got Jean to say she wouldn ' t tell Mrs. ilarsden about it and so the first day ended. But I knew right away there was something awfully familiar about that brother, yet 1 just couldn ' t tell where it came in. He seemed to feel the same. At any rate he kept staring at me the whole time. (Of course, my cap was really very becoming). " " One day when I was dusting the library, in he came and began talking. He happened to mention Anne and of course I started. Then 1 knew at once he was the man Anne had so often mentioned to me. Well, that in itself was enough but what he said was that Anne and her cousin, Harriet Willoughby, were coming to visit Mrs. JMars- den. I almost screamed and I am sure he guessed then and there who [ was. At any rate. I saw the whole matter clearly then. It was all a put up job, I saw through the whole scheme, — just how Anne had figured out the whole matter and how 1 would lose my position and. worst of all, those lovely gloves. I coulil have cried, I was so angry. But that wouldn ' t help matters, so instead I glared at poor Bob — that is — I mean Mi ' . Woodsby — and turned my l)ack. Well, 1 had hardly tinu ' to think liefore a big auto came up and un- loaded Anne and her old maid cousin before the door. Of course, there was great excitement and I tried to look innocent, but it was too much when Anne whisp( red: " Hello. Mai-ion. still on the jol) ' ? " 30 ULUE AXD CRAY " 1 (lid manage to jiiiich licr in the turhoil, but it tlidn ' t do much good. Every chance she got she said something crazy so that only 1 could hear it and Mrs. Marsden would glare when I giggled. As if 1 could help it ! " But the funniest thing was Miss Willoughljy 1 My dear, she just searched every corner to find something to ' crab ' about. The second day she found a feather duster 1 had aecidently left behind the books in the book-ease and reported it to Mrs. ilarsden. Of course, she was furious at me, for Miss Wiiioughby is a dreadful gos- sip. And the way she ran after Professor Cathers! Anyone could see that he was just crazy al)out Jean Woodsby, who is a dear, but Miss Wiiioughby thought she herself, was very attractive and tried to read suffrage articles to him by the hours. Bob — that is — Mr. Woodsby — and 1 tried to help liim out as much as possilde, liut she was a frigid and no mistake. " " Yes, .Sally, I ' m coming to the climax soon. " " You see 1 hadn ' t had a chance to lie alone with Anne yet, but my chance finally came the third evening after dinner. I heard them all say that they were going to the theatre and would leave immedi- ately. Naturally, 1 thought 1 would be alone that evening. So I slipped into the only evening dress I had along and made myself cozy in the library, relying on the hope that no one would come in. As luck would liave it who should wander in liut Anne! Of course, I couldn ' t resist telling her what I thought of her then and there for playing such a trick on me. Just as 1 was telling Anne that she was a mean little cat and that 1 hated her, in walked Mrs. Marsden ! Scandalized was no word for the way she felt. ' ' " That little cat. Miss Wiiioughby, noticed my dress and began to yell, ' Burglars ' . " " Of course, Mrs. Marsden thought it was her dress and began crying — ' Get the police! Oh, my jewels! ' " You never saw such a turmoil in all your life. And that hor- rid little Anne was laughing so she simply couldnt ' ' fess ' up. And there was poor I, not knowing how to explain or what to do. Finally Bob came in and said there must be some mistake and took my part gallantly. That sobered Anne and she explained. Well, they were awfully nice about it and Jean said she knew 1 must be nice because I made such a ' bum ' parlor maid. And then we all went to the theatre. " " Yes, Sal, that ' s all, just now; of course, I might add that Jean and jjob are coming to lloston lomorrow and you n( ' -er can tell what may develop.

The green glen I)elow me promised repose, but when I came suddenly upon the pool, its lieauty startled me. The rich foliage, the sunny lirown hills, the rampant mountains seemed only the rough adamant nuide to contain this gem of Nature, and the marvel grew when one realized that this lucid jewel was naught but water, divinely placed, and virgin pure. The great trees of the hillside spread their giant arms over its sparkling bosom as though fearful that the jealous gods might snatch their treasure from them. From the head of the glen came a gentle liquid tinkle like the clear chimes of a fairy ehHj)el. The inlet, though hidden in the spicy cresses and grasses that tlrooiied i-estfuUy at the water ' s edge, was marked by great rose and violet bubbles that drifted into view on the widening circles of the fall. Through the clear water near the bank, the golden sands and pearl-white pebbles gleamed between the curling ferns and grasses, but toward the center of the pool these were lost in a mystery of uncertain shapes and softly swaying sha- dows and rich blendings of ever changing hues of nameless mystic colors. One almost expected some snowy-limbed, starry-eyed water sprite to )-ise in mists of mantling blues, shake her sunny hair, and in the rijjpling accents of thr brook, invite the weary hunter down to cool elfin bowers of lo ' e, wIhtc fairy delights would soothe away earth ' s cumbrous cares. — Llovd Johnson, " 16. 32 ®ljf itsmu ry of Ma ta TWELVE days of haki ' cl lielplessness niulei ' a lilistered teiit-eloth that hissed when splashed- with dripping sweat; twelve twi- lights and morns of hasty, voiceless l)ustle; twelve nights of hurry through the gi ' eat waste of l)lank, scarless desert sand. To- night, the night of fulfillment, a dim scarf of mist merged saiul and sky into one. The absence of a horizon conjured the delusion of an absolute sameness throughout all creation. The high, brassy moon stood motionless at the zenith, and a solitary star kept her company. I ' lven tlie stolid blacks were oppressed, and no longer croned their monotonous nuirehing chant. I caught myself listening; sti ' aining lo eatch the sound of something — anything, 1 knew not what. Mark ' s horse came even with mine.

We three spurred on at a gallop. We had realized our dreams. We had found the oi ' igin of the legend of the wicked Raja or Mopa, but like many another, realiza- tion ■ as failure. We searched for the lost eit ' ; we found a sjiire. The base was of saml scoured marble, round and perhaps twenty feet through.

Dear Sirs: Your most generous eomiiients on my hist I ' epoi ' t a1 hamh and it is witli numy misgivings 1 submit the foUowing. Uniilce my treatis on diving rods. I offer no exphuuitions, hut simply state the facts as they aiipear to me. Last night was wvy cold and foul, the wind and sea giving promise of sucli a storm as has not lilown since 1 have been here, T was writing rather late in my office, about ten I should judge, when quite suddenly I heard my wicket burst open and slam against the fence. I took a lamp and held it to the window, but could see nothing. The clouds had not yet condensed into that heavy pall from which comes our driving rains, liut the moon was dimmed, and at times entirely eclipsed by the hurrying silver-edged masses Iha1 blew in from the sea. I concluded the disturbance was the work of llie wind, and was about to return to my work when the moon, emerging suddenly, revealed a man, muffled in wraps, strug- gling up my path. As he gained the steps I recognized by his brist- ling hair flaming plaid mufflei ' , my fi ' iend Father Jerrard, parish priest to some dozen miles of tiie craggiest, most poverty-stricd en bit of sea coast in Ireland. Fathei ' Jeri ' ai ' d is young, calm and self-possessed. I have often remarked his poise and admired him for it, but tonight his shaking hands uncovered a face, strangely agitated. His large-pored skin was all goose-fleshed with the cold, and for soim minutes he couhl only puff and wheeze. " It ' s a sick woman. " " he said, by way of exi)lanation wlien lie caught his breath, " the old woman in the hulk on the cliff. " " 1 confess 1 started. Dark and dire were the wiiispers of the woman in the hulk. She lives in the hold of a stranded vessel that had b -i ' n wi-(Mdu ' d. none knew how or when, on the moor clilf. She was re|)uted 1o be a witch. It was said that no matter how foul tiie wijid or tide, liei- blessing could save any smack in the Irish Sea. 1 objected to going, pleading every excuse, but my friend ' s excitement and eai ' uestness [lersuaded me, and we pre})ared to leave. I was just about to turn out the light when he cleared his throat and asked if it were possible that I had any saints " relics. Saints " i-elics! And he knew that 1 was not even a Catholic. 1 luust have shown my surprise, for he looked abashed. " It ' s nothing. " he unimbled. " only there ' s something holy in this wind that a ])owerfuI saint might overcome. " I said nothing but put out light, tightened my wi ' aps (for it was bitter cold " ), and so we set out. We first essayed to go by the direct route across the moor, but th blasts were so sti ' ong that we were in danger of st ' pai ' ation, and the flying sand made this real peril. We were foreed to turn to 34 BLUE AXI) (VRAV tile longer, but more slieltered cliff road. Here, by diiit of shout- ing, J gathered that my patient was feverish, delirious, and was at present under the eare of Fisherman Michel ' s wife. Completely ex- hausted with the energy expended in obtaining this infornnition, [ bent myself to the task of making more perceptable progress against the gale. There was, indeed, something " unlioly in the wind. " Now we were hustled unceremoniously forward, now a howling fiend sought to draw us back. The thickening black clouds rolled themselves up into great threatening Titans, and brooded darkly over the scene. We followed the road straight to the foot of the cliff. We now had no shelter from the tearing wind. The moon cleared its face and we saw the hulk as it loomed on the crest above us. The white path trailing irregularly up from the sea gave the black mass the appearance of some great antediluvian monster spreading a slimj- trail over the stormy moor. The efit ' eet was heightened by the regularly arranged windows, from behind whose shutters cozed a sickly light, like phosphorescence bi ' ead in the reeking rot of some vile bog. We trugged up the slope and entered quickly without knocking. As I shut the door the first raindrops struck spitefully at us. The only visible part of the interior was lit by one small sooty hunj). The black walls here were fairly tight, but through the other half of the hold the wind whistled merrily, in the dim circle of the lamp could be seen just three articles of furniture, namel.y : a black bed, very large, and carved fantastically at head and foot; a chest of drawers, also black, and supporting several slender Oriental flasks ; and last, a most extraordinary clock. This clock was at the foot of the bed. It, too, was black and so tall that as it stood on the floor 1 could .just reach the brazen face. Long glass doors inclosed its slow swinging pendulum and heavy cylindrical ' weights. As I looked at it one of the weights started to descend; the clock hum- med gravely, and sounded one solemn stroke. By its brass dial it was just half past ten. In lieu of table and chairs, miscellaneous kegs and crates had been pressed into service. There was no fire and no provision for fire, so I retained my coat and ear mutt ' s and made out as best I could. 1 asked the neigidior woman a few (piestions, but she was so bemuddled with fear and cold that she could tell next to nothing. 1 appealed to the priest. " About nine this evening my shack door blow in and when I went to close it the witch was standing there in the wind. I called to her. I heard something like ' Help! I ' m dying ' , and she was gone in the stoi ' in. It bothered me so I came over here. She was in bed and sick, so 1 came away for you, and on my Avay over, sent Michel ' s wife in to watch. " I became aware of a movement in the bed, and a pair of bright ))lack eyes like shiny shoe buttons was fixed on my face. 1 walked over and proceeded to examine the patient. During this time, that calculating, unblinking stare followed my every action. Then I made my first discovery I The priest claimed to have seen her in the storm a good two miles from home not two hours ago, yet it was physically iin]i()ssible for a woman in her condition to so much as BLUE AND GRAY 35 cross the floor. I knew furlhiT that slic woiihl not outlive the niglit. Her yellow bloodless hands crushed the covers in a convulsed grip, and she shivered beneath a very billow of linen and wool, yet her head and face were scorched with consuming fever. In ap- pearance she reminded one of the mummy of some great lirainy genius that hail in ages past swayed mighty Egypt. The forehead and back head hulged almost to the point of deformity. A few thin wisps of greenish white hair were brought up from over the ears and neck and twisted into a tight knot on the top of her scalp. The diminutive nose and chin l)ent toward each other in an ett ' ort to hide the tiny gasping, fishlike mouth ; and sick as she was, the red-lidded black eyes, gleaming in their deep set sockets as though with a light of their own, bespoke an inner fount of strength and power that only death itself eoukl quench. I thought of the luifailing blessing of the fisher boats, and began to untlerstand. I wished 1 might hel|) her, but nothing could be done. She must die. The priest was used to this antl could do more than 1. There was really no reason why 1 should stay. Suddenly her face wrinkled oddly, her eyes glistened and narrowed, her mouth gaped, disclosing three jagged blackened teetli. She gave me a fierce smile. " You can ' t go, " she said. " I won ' t let you. " A cold chill gripped me. 1 had not spoken, yet 1 was answered. And the voice — I cannot say what it was, but if the great soml)er clock had spoken it would have usetl that same grating, I ' usty, measured tone. " Hear them fight, " she said hoarsely. The hulk trembled with the violence of the wind. Distant thunder growled sullenly, and fitful lightning lit up the cracks and rips in the far part of the ship, showing faintly the chests and bales stowed there. We chinked the door with rages to keep out the wind and wet. The witch was getting loquacious, and as long as she remained calm I humored her. " The sea-devil wants my life because I ' ve foiled him of the fisher-ships, " she told us. " My saint is fighting for me, but he ' s sure to lose. When he ' s beaten I ' ll only last as long as the clock runs. He wants me alive, so he can drown me, but he can ' t have me, he can ' t, HE CAX ' TI " Her voice rose to a scream. She sank back exhausted with the effort, the pumping veins of her thi ' oat and foi ' e- head gratlually subsided, and I thought she slept. ilichel ' s wife had been talking with the priest. They wished food, and could find none in the house. She prepared to go for some, and stood at the door waiting for a teniporary lull in the tem- pest, before venturing forth. The clock rasped harshly and began to strike. At the first sound the witch was aroused. She fixed the neighbor woman with her eyes. It seemed that the black, weather- beaten walls shivered. The witch rose to a sitting posture; she clenched hei ' hands to hei ' heart, hei ' bi-east heaved. In a mighty ex- plosion of fhundei- the hulk seemed nearly i-ipped from the cliff. It left as suddenly as it had come. A few tottering crates in the daidc part of the hulk fell with an empty clatter. For a space all was quiet — so quiet we could hear the surf surge at the foot of the cliff. A dry, hacking sob made me turn. Hot tears coursed down the seamed cheeks of the witch. 36 BLUE AND r,RAV " He kilk ' tl liiiii ; he killed liiiii, " she niui ' iiiured. With a low I ' liiiihle the storm commenced again. The rain washed heavily against the sides and roof, but the tarry walls held tight. The thun- der hurst and roared upon us. The whistling wind wrenched fierce- ly at the corners. 1 am not very clear on just what followed. For an uncertain period my patient sank I ' ajiidly, yet her excitement increased. The dank, earthly smell from the wet hales, the thunder crashing on the low roof, the shrieks and fits of the witch, all these are a confused remembrance of horror. At times the house seemed to crack and settle as beneath a great weiglit, and again it seemed ready to leap over the cliff into the sea. 1 rememlier rendering the witch a few simple services. Her convulsions hurled her out of bed. I made an effort to hold the blankets, but it was like holding a sail in the pres- ent gale. 1 remember offering her a powerful opiate, which she di ' ank with as little effect as so much water. X ' ainly did poor Je-rrard strive to direct her thoughts to (iod. 8he seemed to have a kind of faith that over-reached our spiritual scope, and she patiently put aside all preferred guidance. The clock struck half past eleven. She raved about it. She did not want it to stop, and though the long, glistening glass doors the cruel weights could be seen nearing their limit. So frantic did she become that 1 offered to wind it for her. From her fever-wasted neck she took a little golden key. For pei ' liaps ten minutes I strove wdth the lock. The key seemed to fit, but the lock stuck. I gave it up and turned to the bed. The witch had risen to her knees. The little button of hair on the top of her head had become undone, wisky strands streamed out wildly about her. She glowed at me. " Try again, " she said hoarsely. Once more I knelt to my task. Softly 1 saw the weight descend ; the clock shirred ominously. Midnight was about -to strike. In- stinctively I shrank back. The witch uttered a de.spairing ci ' v and flung herself to the far side of the bed. Her eyes started froin her head. With withered, palsied hand she [lointed to the door. Her grey gasping face worked idiotically. With a mighty howl the storm spiving upon us. The d(i(n ' creaked and strained, the black panels bidged. Then I saw the shiny white knob turn. I saw the jjriest stai ' t forward. I cannot say I saw the dooi ' open, but in the bi ' eath we were in the darkness of the pit, while round us shrieked and frothed the lashing demons of wind ;intl hail. I was hurled violently on my face. Half stunned, I rose on one elbow. Something struck me aei-oss the eyes. I dragged it off. The doorway was a dazzling block of bright blue fire. Blinded I turned my head. Like a fearful ai)])artition I beheld the witch. She sai with her back pressed to the head of the bed. Her hands grappled the throat of an unseen foe. A green flame gleamed about her head, her eyes rolled wildly an l glowed like coals. I struggled to my feet and started forward. The great clock lurched druid-cenly and " shat- tei ' ed aero,ss my path. The witch shrieked; a dark stream gushed Iroiii he) ' nose and mouth; her arms fell. She crumpled into a piti- ius liea|i.

I knew the witch was dead. 1 could see nothing. Where was the i riest and the neighbof woman . ' Were they here : ' 1 pondered foolishly over this (luestion which the sound of my voice eonld de- cide. By degrees a quiet came. I heard my watch. 1 heard lieavy breathing. 1 looked and listened for a sound or sign of the storm. There was no ci ' ashing thunder, no howling wind, no rattling rain. A musty odor from the earth ; a damp swish in the coarse moor grass ; the di ' owsy never ceasing boom of the surf — that was all. r do not know how long tliis lasted. First I noticed the tran- som over the door was mysteriously lit. It was not the flicker of lightening, but a steady, soft glow. It briglitened slowly. Then a broad white shaft reached through the blackness and rested on the head of the bed. The body lay muffled in the tumbled covers .- an ugly staining stream crept from the shapeless heap, wriggled down the ])illow, and dripped into a bloody pool on the floor. I lieai ' d someone move. It was with some apprehension 1 ti ' ied my voice. 1 spoke. Father Jerrard answered. Together we opened one of the windows. It was bright moonlight out. Torn rags of storm clouds scudded away to sea, and a clear round moon shone through. Quietly we lit the light. A stifled exclamation from the preist made me turn. He vas standing by the door. " Have either of you touched this knob? " he asked. We had not. He stepped to one side. A great red stain marred its white- ness. " Its nothing, " he said. He crossed himself and wiped it off. The neighbor woman regained her composure. She went home, promising to return for the death-watch. Half an hour sufficed for the rest of our duties, then we left. How good it seemed to be free from that house ! I felt like 1 had had a year ' s imprisonment. We walked briskly about the path. Just before the turn nearest the sea. we saw something glitter at our feet. I picked it np. We could hardly believe our eyes. Here, at least five hundred feet from the hulk, lay the golden key to the clock I There was something odd about the path. A jagged line ran across it; 1 knelt and examined it. It was a crack. Idly 1 stuck my finger into it — something snapped. A great fissure opened at my feet and cut athwart the cliff. Slowly and dizzily the whole crest tottered outward. T saw the hulk list endwise. Then in a rushing roar the mass rolled ovei-. The ship, mad to l)e free, bounded high into the air. It struck twice. Its storm-tried beams crumpled like nuitch wood. For an instant the sea foamed where it sank, and then the spot was swe])t by the nuiddy wave of the slide. Von learned gentlemen of the Reseai ' di Labratories inay explain ) liese things. 1 cannot.

" Have we, the jiresent students, oi ' have We not lost our School Spirit : ' " Every high school graduate, since schools ha ' e been estalilislied, has held, more or less strongly, that the classes following him o i ' lur, never were as far advanced, as brilliant, as athletic or " spirited " as the class to which he l)elonged.

Thus it is that, througliont our en- tire lives, we of the enlightened age, who spent our early youth in the pursuit of knowledge and in scientific research, find that we are always either looking on others contemptuously, or are being re- garded in the same contemi)tuous light. If, in the estimation of the graduates, we as a school are so stricken with amliition and high resolve that we are willing to sacri- fice anything to outdo a neighboi ' ing school, we possess an exorbin- ate amount of " School Spirit. " But what are we supposed to do excel ' ! Why, our school colors must be the gaudiest, our neckties llie latest penitentiary offences, our yells the loudest, our athletes the best and our Senior Class must, 1iy all means, be so skilled in all capers touching on pugilism that no under-classman or faculty mem- ber dare to dictate to any oiu- of their number. lias our scliool lost her " Spirit? " Here lies the controversy, or, to put it fornuilly, the debate in which the Graduates take the affirmative and we, the students, the negative on the question, Resolved, that the School Spirit of Mountain View High School is dead. We, of the negative firmly hold that the stand taken liy the affirnuitive is groundless, they basing their claims entirely uiion the fact that we are not as " spirited " as they. We hold that the affirmative puts forth no ai ' gunu ' nts to back their claims. For their side of the debate they simply say that we do not begin to come up to their high conceptions of spirited students. In other words — ' ' we ' re dead heads. ' ' And when an argunu ' ntative enthusiastic graduate is giving us this astounding infornuition he begins, " Why, when 1 was in High School there wasn ' t one of us who couldn ' t lick the principal ! And accomplished! Say we could all inhale through our ears when we were Freshmen. And say — " lUit here we of the negative interrupt and begin our side of the del)ate. While we admit that we are next to " Spiritless, " in the Ciradu- ates ' opinion and in their interpretation of the word, we still hold that our Spirit is far from benig at its lowest ebb.

" Why endeavor to abolish war, race antagonism, and ti ' usts, (11 ' lo promote democracy, oi ' socialism, when the rising generation of students is filled to its greatest capacity with " siiii ' itedness ? " Does the urging of " school spirit, " in the graduates ' sense of the word, tend to protect or i)romote the geiU ' ral welfare of our people? No?

In accordance with this 1 may safely give my ojiinions of Ihe hajipenings in our school world. The past year we can surely say has been a successful and also an eventful one. Activities of all soi ' ts have flourished. The new de- partments. Domestic Science, Woodwork, and Arts and Crafts, have been tried and proved a success. All other work has also progressed. •Ml iui ' entertainments have heen financial as well as social suc- cesises. Perhaps athletics have not heen attacked with as much vigor and enthusiasm as in foruu ' r years; hut if this lie so, it can be said Id be overshadowed by the success of our new activity, ilebating. During the middle of last year we took up debating for the first lime. This year of the two dual debates, we won both by high scores and have won the cuj) as champions of the Santa Clai-a ' alley I)e1)at- ing League. This is surely success for only a year and a half ' s work. And what is to prevent us from continuing this good work? Vou I ' an nol always fiiul enough good athletes to make a winning foot- ball or baseball team, but surely in a school of one hundred and twenty-eight you can find six people who. with a little work and the siippoi-t of the students will make good debaters. This ' ear has heen an eventful one, especially in the life of our high school paper.

But one or two things mai ' the entire success of the year. One is that we still have among us a few knockers. Xo matter vha1 is done, if they are not the principal jtartieipants. they think it is not being done right or should not be done at all. Yet tliese same i)eo- ple when appealeil to foi ' assistance will nevei- help. They ai ' e just luitural " crabbers " , who make life unjdeasant for all ai ' ound them. We are thankful to say that but few of this type are among us, yet even these arc enough to caiise an unpleasant i ' ii ])Ie. United effort is needed for everything you uiulertake, if it is no more than i)Ost- ])oning a civics exaunnation. and if you can not co-operate during your school days, what will you do later? If you do not like the way things are being done, pitch in and work — they may go lietter for your help. If you cannot do this, lay your grouch aside and think how your attitude must seem to those M ' ho can work. Then you can at least boost; and if you have boosters and no shirkei ' s Ihings just cannot go wrong. In getting out this copy of the " IJlue and (iray " we need plenty of boosters for A e are jjledged to make it both a financial and literary success. Toward this end the entire staff has struggled, and sometimes it has been a grind to obtain the necessary- nmterial. Mow well we have succeeded, we shall b ' t you juilge.

The officers of the first semester were: President — Carlton Rouse. Vice President — Iva Rogers. Second Vice President — Elsie JJakei ' . Secretary — Victor Davis. Treasurer — Walter Goodwin. Sergeant-at-arms — Eldora Freeman. The second semester the following officers were elected for the rest of the year : President — James Uermody. Vice President — Donald Mork. Second Vice President — Marjory McKean. Secretary — Harriet Minton. Treasurer — Eldora Freeman. Sergeant-at-arms — Hugh Ross. Several of the entertMinmenfs of the year were given under the control of the Student liodv and for its benefit. GLEE CLUB. The Glee Club also holds an important place, for it has been very successful during the last two yeai-s. The following officers have served throughout the year: President — Eldora Freeman. Secret arv — Harriet Hint on. Director— Mr. F. F. Jeffers. Under the efficient direction of ilr. Jeffers the Glee Club suc- cessfully presented the cantata, " Queen Esther, " on April 30. This was given for the benefit of the Glee Clul) and the Student Body and was a financial success. AGRICULTURAL CLUB. One of the new clul s this year is thi- lioys " Agricultural Clul). It was organized eai ' ly in the sjn ' ing by Professor Crocheron of the Cniversity of California. Great interest has been taken in this work and several men from the University interested in the woi ' k liave visited the club. The following officers have been elected: President — Jack North. Secretary — William Chung. The crop chosen for this yeai ' , to lie raised 1)y the club for experiment, is tomatoes. Three other new clubs have been started this year, the Read- ing and Expi ' ession, World ' s Progress and Short Story Club. The World ' s Progress Club has subscribed for a number of the leading magazines wliich ai ' e used in their work, uiulei ' the direc- tion of Mrs. Peckham. The Short Story Club has aided in supplying material foi- the Blue and Gray. Most of the stories in the paper are from members of this club, which is under the direction of ]Miss Wolfenbarger. The Reading and Expression Clul) in charge of Professor Zahn and iliss Ward has matle great progress along several lines. It has supplied I ' eaders for several school programs during the year. 48 DEBATING CLUB. Since the Debating Cliil) was organized two years ago in connec- tion with the Santa Clara Valley Debating League, it has advanced rapidly. The Debating Manager for this year is Victor Davis and the debaters all say he is well suited for the place. The club, in charge of Mr. Lindsay has met every Friday. On Decenilier 12 of last year the fir ' st ilebate of the season was held. This was a dual debate between Mountain View High School and Palo Alto High School. The M. V. H. S. team on the affirmative was Leslie Frazer and Harold Wright; the negative Florence Hoer- nig and Lloyd Johnson, with Edith Linck as alternate. The question was: " Resolved that the California Legislature was justified in the passage of the Anti-Alien Land Act. On April 24. 19U another debate was held with Palo Alto High School on the (juestion. " Resolved that the immigration of all unskilled labor to the Tnited States of the Slavis, Italic and Hellenic T ' aces of South and Southeastern Europe should be pro- hibited. " Our affirmative team was Edith Linck and Florence Hoernig; the negative, Victor Davis and Lloyd Johnson, with Don- ald York as alternate. Oui ' school was victorious in both debates and thereby won the championship of the Santa Clara Valle - Debating League. There- fore we now have the silver trophy cup i)resented by the Delphic Society of the San Jose High School. This cup if won by the same school for three consecutive years becomes the property of that school. There is a fine proSpeet that our school will be able to do this. «W£:. 50 i nrt?tg FRESHMAN RECEPTION. Alioul two weeks alter oui- return to the AI. V. II.

The Domestic Science, Woodwork and Arts and Crafts Depart- uienls exhibited their work on March 6th. The guests present were served with sandwiches and coffee, by Miss Peers, assisted by Miss l ' -ekliain. in the dining room of the Bungalow. ARBOR DAY. Every one came to schol on Arbor Day with the idea of having a good time and also of working. The board declared the day a holi- day as far as class work was concerned. The ])oys of each class were assigned a certain portion of the grounds in which to prepare flower beds, and various kinds of vines, geraniums and ferns were planted. The Seniors gathered near the bungalow and planted their palm. Fireworks and a balloon were set off, while appropriate yells were given and songs sung. At one o ' clock luncheon was served under the trees by the girls of the various classes. The remainder of the afternoon was reserved for tennis, basket-liall and liaseball games.

This de- ci ' ease we feel is due to neglicence on the part of this depart- ment in the sending out of our own annual. An attempt will be made to improve in this respect next year. The staff joins with the Editor in sending sincere thanks for the books sent to us and a welcome to you and the new friends we hope to nuike. We BLIE AND GRAY 53 hope to rt ' ceive in good will the ei-itieisins ori ' crcd and iirol ' il ms mucli fi-oin them as we hope to from your criticisms of our amiual. Megaphone, Fortuna High (Eureka) — You sjieak of lack of space. We suggest that you tleci-ease the width and depth of the book; we found this successful as well as profitable. Your depart- ments as a whole are well arranged. The cuts are very fine. Stories and poems are lacking. Why use different paper in places? Cardinal and (Jold (Oxnard) — The size of your book is good. The i)oem, " California Sunset is well written. Improve the Liter- ary Department. Why nol make the l)ook more general rather than devote pages to classes. The art and group pictures are stiff. We do not favor colored paper for a book. El Eco, Lincoln l nion High (Lincoln) — The cover does not iM|ual the contents in attractiveness. Do not separate the Girls ' Bas- ket ISall picture from Athletics. The poem, " Pockawanee, " is ex- cellently written and the poet deserves great credit. The art cuts are very good. With tli( exeei)tion of these faults you are a fine book. Till ' .Madi-(nia, Palo Alto High (Palo Alto) — You are an excel- lent paprr. ' our api earance is attractive within and without. We can nol criticise anything although we have tried hai ' d. Oak Leaves (Morgan Hill) — This is one of the most attractive books on the desk. Just a few words of criticism. Hi-ing the name of the school and the table of contents to the fi ' ont. The cartoons deteriorate from the Senior Class pictures. Golden-Hlue ( Maxwell )— Hurrah for Maxwell I We highly honor youi- efforts to estaldish an annual. You are doing well for a starter. Please accept the well-meant criticisms offered. I ' Se more art cuts; they improve a book. We do not favor group pictures. The stories are good. Add -a couple of poems to the Literary Depart- ment. Orange and lUack (Coalingo) — You are a Xmas numlici ' and so it is not fair to compare you with annuals. A snmller size and at- tractive cover would make a great improvement. The cuts, though few, are good. Improve on the Literary Department. The Wild Cat, Los Gatos High (Los Gatos) — ' ' oiir book |)re- sents an attractive apjiearance thi ' oughout. Its very self spells Xmas number. The art cuts should receive special mention foi- llieii ' ex- cellence. The Exchange ( ' oluiini is vei-y cle ' erly wi ' itlen. ' ou ai ' e an excellent book. Progress, Easton High (Eastoii, Fi-esno Co.) — The Classes of Easlon High, including Ihe class of 1918, deserve great credit in bringing the book out of oblivion after ten long years. Of course you must begin aiii ' W. . (ld more cuts. Improve the Litei ' ary De- partment. You are the only book- on the desk that pays tribute to our California Poet. Joaipiin sillier. We compliment you. — P ldora Kreeman. 1!IU. ' 14 Ni7 Athletics in a higli school tt ' iul to develop file athlete physically and make the school known throughout the counti ' y. It also offers an attraction to a cei ' tain class of [irosiieetive students. The interest this year was not wiiat it might have been. Two years ago and again last year a great nunil)er of our best athletes graduated, so it is due to the loss of these leaders that our school has not been as well represented as formerly. GIRLS ' BASKET BALL. As in former years the girls have practieeil well and lu ' ought iionor to the school in many games. Several old players were lost, because some of the girls who had played in the team for several years felt that they could not take the time to practice this year. P y this loss the team was severely handicapped: since it meant that sevei ' al inexpei ' ienced players had to he taught the game, l)ut with Alice Hagerty and Marie Garliepp as managers a good team was organized, and the folowing league and practice games wei-e ])la e l: Mt. View vs. San Mateo— Score, 12-111. Mt. View vs. Palo Alto— Score, 14-14. Mt. View vs. San Mateo— Scoree, 11-10. Mt. View vs. San Jose— Scoi ' e, 10-46. Mt. View vs. Santa Clara— Score, 28-5. Mt. View vs. Alumni — Score, 14-19. Mt. View vs. Los Gatos— Score, 11-12. I [t. View vs. Santa Clara— Score, 39-2. BASEBALL. An increased interest in liaseljitll was also noticed this year. Tlie boys jiractieed industriously and although they were losers in most games, a great deal of experience has been gained. Since but one player will be lost by graduation, the team will doubtless be more successful next year. 56 TENNIS. More enthusiasm was shov.ii uver leiniis this yosir thaii during any lu ' evious year. The team had only one court on which to prac- tice, and, since this was used Jiy others than the regular team, the houi-s dui ' ing which our hoys could practice wei-e necessarily limited. An interclass tournament was held, in which Ellsworth Ti ' ullsen won the singles and Ernest Rankin and ' ictor Davis the douhles. With the addition of two new courts pi ' obably next year even more sliiudd be accomplished. BOYS ' BASKET BALL. Our boys attempted basketball this year for the first tinu Mr. F ' isher and Mr. Byrd deserve the creelit for anything which may have been done in this line. Three games were played, two with Redwood and one with Campbell. Our team was defeated in all. By this time (rack work and baseball practice usurped its place and the team dis- banded. TRACK. Track has always been the strongest part of nu- athletics, but Ibis year, as in the other forms of athletics success has not been so nuirked. The usual interclass track meet and tiy-out were held: the Juniors and Sophomores vou by the score of r)9 to -17. This year for the tirst tinu in seven years lountain View lost the I. A. V. track nu ' et. Santa Clara took first place and Jlonntain View fourth. 57 Ahtmut NntrH " Again till ' sik ' iit wheels of Time, Their annual loiuul have driven.

View i ruim OIlaBB llftistortj THE task of writing a Class History is not as simply as most people believe. The four years of High School life seem short but if they ai-e at all eventful, as they usually are, one becomes confused as to true facts. Realizing this, it was with no great pleas- ure that I received the announcement that 1 was to write our Senior Class History. The more 1 tried to ferret out and combine the true facts my mind possessed, the darker the situation became. In the midst of my anxiety an alumnus came to the rescue, telling me that a hermit dwelt in a cave in the mountains to the west, and that he had kept true Histories of the Classes of Mountain View High School since its erection. 1 feai ' ed to meet something mj ' sterious and un- canny, but clinging to this suggestion as a last thread of hope, I gained the consent of a more courageous friend to accompany me on Sunday. Following directions, we abandoned the automobile at the end of a dense foi-est, and picked our way over rocks and through underlu-ush until we discovered the cave abode, almost concealed liy overgrowth and liarred to intruders by a heavy door. As the ob- ject of our search cautiously drew the door open and stood in the entrance before us, I pi ' cceived that my fears were not entirely vm- grounded, for he was uncanny without doubt. His gaunt and angu- iai- figure was clothed in a loose flowing gown of coarse material and his l(uig uid empt grizzled hair and lieai ' d flowed wild. The stars of his protruding eyes was somewhat softened by heavy brows. " When he spoke, kindly inviting us in and ini|iiiring our mission. 1 for one was greatly relieved. 60 BI.rR AND CRAY Opening ;i huge worn and dnst-L-ovcrccl ()liiini ' . lie slowly I ' an his l)ony liiigeis os ' cr the i)ages and read: " Septeinhei ' 6, 1910 — Thii-ty-fonr girls and hoys, beaming with relf-coniiilene; ' and nerve, sought admission to ] Iouiitain View High School as Freshmen and were allowed to enter. You scorned all otters of protection, jireferriug to hear the burden of it on your own shoulders. " As an indication of the ner e you i)ossessed, you pui ' chased red hats, adorning them with green and flaunted them before the eyes of the Fpperelassmen until you deservingly lost a few, hut not without gaining some belonging to them. " Worse yet, thinking that the Upperclassnien were slow in receixing, you asked them if they didn ' t think it was time that they were giving you a reception. In doing this you defied all conven- tions of society. Then, too, after their kindness, most of the class said that they did not enjoy themselves at all. Hut you were for- given, since you were mere Freshmen. " Organization later took place, and on Hallowe ' en you selfishly gave a party to which none of your superiors were invited. Xever- theless, numy of the uninvited guests were in evidence, displaying a sample of that I ' efreshing j erfume, 1128, fi ' om tlie Chemical Labora tory. which they had ,i;ist leai-ned to make. " The secon d semester you entered the new addition of the High School with the I ' liperclassmen and were assigned to the front seals in the study hall. Ah ! that smile of triumph that encircled your faces, for were you not furthest from the teacher in charge, while the Seniors were nearest? This joy was short-lived, however, for every one of your teachers could see well at long distance. " During this semester you class enjoyed several parties at the different homes of class mend)ers. " In Jlay, without being exactly asked, you joined the Juniors and Sophmores in entertaining the Seniors. " To you this had been a very eventful year for you were well repi ' esented in all organizations and athletics, as well as the social affairs of the school. Vacation seems to have ajijieared on the scene only too soon. " September IJ, 1911. — Alas! Alas! Although your nundiers have decreased to twenty-nine, the self confidence and nerve has in- creased with amazing I ' apidity. Your love for society which went hand in hand with tliem has entirely vanished. This year you seem to lia -e nuide up your minds to amuse youi ' Selves hy tormenting the Freshmen in ways which you did not permit when you were in their place. Being permitted to assist the Seniors and Juniors in enter- taining the Freshmen, you made them almost fear for their lives if they dared to show up. But they were game and you admitted it. Listen! " He jiointed a warning finger toward us. " When track suits and showers came into use along with other meanness : Ir. Zahn and Jliss Ward stood sjionsors in place of your former Fi ' eshman Mother, I Iiss Williston, who had departed to take a position in her home town, San Jose. " Finally, to the joy of the ' infants, ' you desisted from treat- ing them ill, but started in on the I ' ver-kinil teachers. .Vow thai you aiv oldei- you are sorrv, verv sorrw BLUE AXD CRAY 61 " During tlie year several fine leeturi ' S were given. I do not know wliether or not they were for ycMii- benefit: if tiiey wei ' e they surely had litle effect. " Apai ' t from organizations and athletics you took no part in social affairs with the exception of helping to entertain the Senior Class at a picnic at Congress Springs, which you enjoyed as much as they. " Ah! When vacation arrived tiie Faeully and the other stu- dents were ready to offer votes of tluinks antl to pray that with thi ' ■Junior year you Sophomores would absorb more kindness and dig- nit ' . ■ ' Septendjcr 11, 11)12. — Hurrah of the Juniors I 1 have marked this as a banner year for you. The prayers of the school have been answered, for you have undoubtedly assumed l)oth dignity and kind- ness. Vou have begun to realize that yours is not the only class in High School. This year you worked hand in hand with the Senior Class, foi- which you luul great respect and which was a fine exam- j)le of peaeefulness. As Juniors you were allowed the initiative in entertaining them, of which privilege you were proud. On January ■ ' il. you entertained these Seniors at a banquet in Mockliee ' s Hall. From all appearances you took great pains in decorating and in giv- ing them a good time and from rei)oi-ts voiu- attempts were success- ful. " Still in every oi ' ganization of school you were I ' epresented by your classmen. Great spirit was shown by you in the giving of bene- fits for l)oth the Student Hody and the Glee Club. " Most of your Junior year was spent in the Chemical Labora- tory, and a mystei ' y has always encircled that part of your history. ()f1en the questions have been asked, ' Why were phunbers called to the laboratory so often? " ' What became of all the beakers and am- moni Hydroride? " ' Who was the last person to need the attentions of a physician? " Most of them can be answered by your class only, but, " " he added with a twinkle in his eyes, " I am siu ' e that every Junior ' got his own as well as the preceding classes ' money ' s woi ' tl out of the one dollar and fifty-cent fee. " In Slay you again took the initiative and putrrtained that ilodel Senior Class at a reception. " When the t- enty-eighth of June brought gi ' aduation. it was with extra precaution that you decorated the hall anil stage which was to hold the beaming faces of the gi ' advmtes of 191:]. " September 8, VMS. — With a feeling of ionesomeness foi- the gratluates, you took places in the long-envied I ' ear seats of the study hall and yourselves became Seniors. " Your Class on entrance numbered nineteen. Two new stu- dents had entered your ranks, Beulah Keagy, from the San Jose High School, and Leslie Fi-azer from the Class of li)l:l who had been forced to drop out of school because of an injtu-y received in tlir laboratory. These students you found a liig addition 1o the (dass. Only a couple of months had elapsed when Carlton and Edith Rouse, and ; Lirguerite ISills left your class. They had entered with yon as " awful " Freshmen and now that your class had reached the zenith they departed. " Vour class then numbei ' ed sixteen — thirteen gii-ls and three boys. Although your class possessed l)ut three bo ' s. they lid as 62 BLUE AXI) (iRAV imich for the class and school as trijile the mitnbei ' might have done. " This promised to be a busy year, as usual, for the Seniors. " The good citizens of Mountain View, inspired by your teach- ers and the trustees, erected one of the finest Domestic Science Bun- galows in the State for your use, outfitted a splendid Woodwork Department, and also a Pottery and Leather Department. Two teachers were added to the Faculty for the new departments, mak- ing a total of eight teachers. The Seniors were given first oppor- tunity to take up the work of either of these departments. Your class was represented by ten of the thirteen girls in the Domestic Science Department. Tlie boys wei ' e consi)icuous by their absence, except at the close of cooking hours, when they managed to absorb enough courage to shy near the windows for a ' hand-out. ' No serious results from such have been reported. The Woodwork De- partment was represented by one of the three Senior boys, and the Pottery and Leather Department by four Senior Girls. Much work has been accomplished in all these Departnu ' nts. " In December the Junior class, which still shows the game spirit it possessed as a Freshman Class and which you had tormented so, entertained ,you at a delightful supper and dance in Mockbee Hall. " During the second semester you took special pains in class organization. How proud you felt of the title gold ' M. V. H. S., ' 14, ' pins that you chose for your class emblem! The colors, red and green, you have proudly carried through all your high school days. To match these in color and beauty you chose the Jacqueminot Rose. You have truthfully lived uj) to your motto, ' Rowing, Xot Drifting, ' foi- much has been accomplished bv vour class during its High School Life. " The fourteenth of March being Arbor Day for California, the Senior Class chose it as the da.y when one of the greatest events of a Senior ' s life should take place, that of planting -a palm. Later it was announced that the entire school would have a holiday, with the provision that the grounds be beautified in some manner. Conse- ([uently the work was divided among all the classes, with the excep- tion of the Senior Class, whose jjlans for beautifying had already been made. The Underclassmen looked wise, but said nothing. You interpreted this wise look of theirs as meaning that you Seniors had chosen this as a i)alin i)]antiiig day to get out of the other work, but you were wrong. " With all due ceremonies a lieauliful palm was given its jilace on the campus, but it was not to I ' emain long. The next day those guilty of the removal of the palm were easily detected by the in- terpretation of the wise look on many of the faces of the Underclass- men at the mention of the Senior palm. Its little journey was un- doubtedly beneficial to its health, for since its I ' einstatement by the guilty parties it has flourished. " This year the special honors of printing the ' Blue and Gray, ' of holding the highest offices of the Student Body, and of presenting the Senior Farce were bestowed upon the mendiers of your class. " Seniors! You have done your duty to the best of your ability in all the organizations and in all of the athletics of the school and any failure in most cases was not due to lack of trial. " As the days neared graduation and began to drag as usual BLUE AND GRAY 63 and prove a burden, you t ' ouiul them liglit ' neil by the smiU ' s and kindness of your cdass teaeher. Miss Peekhani, who look a profound interest in all your problems. " Now, ou a separate page I have kei)t a reeord of the things for which the Senior Class is noted : " 1. For the nund)er of offices in the Depai ' tmen t of Matrimony which you have filled with members of your class. M. seems to have been the favorite initial of tlie candidates, for did not May Dyer marry during the Sophmore yeai ' , JMyrtle Perrel dui-ing the Junior year, and Margaret Hills during the Senior year? The one remaining M. has consented to remain with you until graduation. The remainder shall be revealed by her. " 2. For the saving of the dear old ' Blue and Gray ' from an indefinite ol)livion, by strong and appealing arguments in its favor. " " ;;. Two of the best debaters, who brought glory to the school are members of your class, namely, Florence Hoeruig and Edith Linck. " ■4. And the greatest honor( ?) of all 1 have yet to reveal, that of never, with emphasis ou tlie never, having had a class meeting without a quarrel. " As a favor in return for what 1 have told you, I beg of you to carry this message to your classmates. Tell them that I as an old lleruiit of Knowledge send them these few words of greeting: " Seniors! You have reached one great epoch in your lives, l)ut lliere are others before you. When you receive your diplomas on tile night of the twenty-fifth of June, nineteen hundred and four- teen, know you one and all, that what you are and will be, you owe to the citizens of Mountain View and vicinity who have given you one of the finest High Schools and some of the finest teachers in the States ; to your dear parents, who have never failed to encourage each and everyone of you to take a High School education; and last, but my no means least, to the faculty, whose untiring efforts and great patienct- have brought you all to this your first goal. But your history is not finished. You have all careers mapped out before you and in making tht ' ni let " Kowing. Not Di ' ifting ' ever be your watch- word.

This morning 1 -went out to view Bunker Hill monunu ' nt. While there 1 saw an accident, one of the numerous scaffolds recently built about the monunu ' ut fell. After that I heard two women talking rapidly behind me. Think- ing I recognized the voices, 1 listened aiul 1 could hear one saying, " Where do you get that stuff? " The other constantly was saying, " I won ' t, 1 won ' t, 1 tell you. " it dawned on me that it must be Alice and Lola. 1 said, " Hello Steve. " She turned, glaring at me, with a " Where d ' ye get that stuff? " Somewhat crestfallen I turned to Lola, remembering that she always had a soft heart and quiet temper. " Don ' t you I ' emember me, Lola? " " I won ' t, " she snap- l)ed out, " I won ' t. " Disappointed I turned to leave, whereupon they joined me and I found out that they were members of an Old Maid ' s Patriotic Society engaged in the i)hilanthropie work of scraping dust and moss off the moiunnent.

Having nothing else to do I en- gaged a seat for the cii ' cus tomorrow afternoon. 1 intend leaving on my Enroitean tour Thursday, June 28. June 27. This afternoon at the circus I was very much interested in the quick lively action of the leading acrobatic troupe. This troupe was noted for its rapid I ' unning. Interested, I looked at my program to see who was the leader of the troupe and was surprised to see that the leader was Iva Rogers, of all people. My l)aggage is all ready for my trip tomorrow, so I ' ll bid my diary goodbye until 1 land in England, foi ' 1 know that I ' ll be siek all the way over. Good bye. London, July 4. Many intei ' estiug things have passed. 1 can not record all of them in my little book. However, I hail a (pieer experience in West- minister Abbey this morning. In one of the main corridors I no- ticed a large crowd. Being curious, I moved to the edge of the crowd just as a man said, " The Queen! the Queen is coming! " I looked up. and, on the turn of the stairs, just ready to run down, for that is now the correct manner of queenly descent, was the queen with her courtiers. Just then one of the queen ' s maids, who in former years was known as " a perfect lady, " tripi)ed, slipped and rolled down the entire flight of the stairs. The officers rushed to her aid and I doubt if I had ever recognized her, as hei- hair was down, if 1 h;Ml not heard her exclaim, " Daawrn it. 1 knew it must lie Madeline Itrown. and sure enough it was. ' ' len Paris, Prance, July 17, 1924. I arrived here yesterday from l russels very much fatigued. Yesterday afternoon while strolling down the Rue de L ' Ecole, as I went by a gay little sweets shop I was accosted by a large, stout red-haired woman. She spoke French volubly. Having only a very litle French in my vocabulary 1 replied, " Le ne ])arlipas. " and she answered, " Chames — he is up ze stairs changing ze clothes, he zee ,yoii down ze street, and so make ze preparation for ze to receive. " Amazed, I waited for the proprietor, and it was my old class mate, Jim Derniody, and of course, the dark, red hair belonged to . July 19. Paris is certainly fascinating. In my explorations yesterchiy, I visited Napoleon ' s tomb under the dome of Hotel des Invalides. While there 1 was amused to watch the qucei ' antics of a guard near the tomb, who was attempting to assume the poses of Napoleon. On the second glance I saw that the guard was Leslie Frazer. I suppose he gained his present ])osition upon the recommendation of " Queen Esther. " July 2:1 Today I met Mayor Bristow and family and tliey invited me to visit their home in Berlin. We leave tomori ' ow at 9 from the Grand Central Station. 66 BhVE AND ORAV Herliii, Germany, July 29, 1924. This moi ' iiiiig Jocheii ISristow took me to the American legation, where I was agreeal)ly surprised to meet my old friend Florence. She is first secretary of the legation and also is now pnhlishing a hook, " Complete Simple German Grammar For Primary Grades. " I must secure a copy of it as soon as possible. I don ' t care for Germany so I think I shall soon leave for the Southern Countries. Rome, Italy, August 3, 1924. Here it is August and I have gotten only as far as Italy in my tour of the world. Oh my I How 1 must hurry on. Monday 1 was pleasantly surprised to meet Ruth Drake on the street. She told me that she is here having her voice cultivated in order to be a " Bella Donna. " Ruth gave me a copy of her latest composition. It was ((iiite pretty and called. " Please go away and let me sleep. " ' esterday, I visited the Vatican, but the Poj e was out, so I did not even have a chance to see him. Alexandria, Egypt, September 1, 1925. The climate here is certainly great. I had a lovely three-mile i-ide this afternoon on a camel to see some of the old ruined tombs. I thought I saw a familiar figure delving and prowling around at the base of one tomb. Going closer I saw that it was Eldora Free- num and the guide explained that she was one of the leading scien- tists. She was searching foi ' a trace of the ancient Egyptian styles. Calcutta, India, September 29, 1925. What a wonderful record I have kept of my journeyings ; a brief account of each day ' s happenings! On Saturday, while visiting the new mission schools established by millionaires of Milpitas, Califor- nia, I was attracted by the beautiful young teacher who passed us. She had a pure face and was surrounded by a horde of little black urchins. On returning to my hotel that evening I inquired who she might be, and was told that she was Beulah Keaggy, one of the most successful teachers there. Foo-Foo Chung, China, October 7, 1925. I arrived in this dirty little town last night. A bridge is washed out, so I can ' t get away for three days. This noon, while I ' iding down the street in a rickety jini-iksha, 1 was hori-ified to see this " Choo-Razek and Co., Pottery. " Frantically 1 called " Stop! stop! " to my coolie, and luirried back to the dingy shop. Inside a sly chink approached me. " Belly glad you to see. The boss she belly glad-so all-she coming-be away I ' ight you to see. " The boss turned out to be Fanny, of course. She showed me several pieces of ancient pottery, made in 1914. T think, in Mountain View High School, California. Vladivostok, Siberia, October 20, 1925. Our tourists ' i)arty has been kept here a week, because of a fault in our jjassports. I was surprised while visiting one of the BLUE AND (IRAV 67 mining caiuiis iwnr here to find Harold Wright. He told nie that he had been exileil there liecanse of his attempted interference with Russian government. He, however, recently had a i)romotion and is now athletic instnietor of a local clnl) here. San Francisco, Calif., November 23, 1925. We landed safely today on the liner " Vaterland. " It seems great to be back in America, but 1 have certainly enjoyed my trip. J received a postal this morning with a view of the new million dollar High School Building, in Alountain View. The card was from Leona, who is now principal of that institution. She said on the card that one of the news members of the faculty is a dancing teacher. I think 1 shall leave hei ' e soon for a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Carney in El Paso, Texas. El Paso, Texas, December 10, 1924. This uiorning when Mrs. Cai ' ney and I boarded a street car for Juarez, the Mexican point of interest, we heard a small weak voice say, " Fare i lease. " " We looked around for a few minutes before we discovered a very small conductoress, brilliant in a blue suit and ))rass buttons. It was Grace Mac, of all people ! How many of my old friends I have seen! Oh, yes, I nearly forgot that this aftei ' uoon, while in Mexico, 1 saw a duel. In the middle of the I Iain Street in center of a crowd two small boys were furiously fighting. Suddenly a tall blonde shot out fi ' om the oppo- site side of the crowd and separated them. Her only words were, " Peace, let there be Peace I " It was Alice Toft, our former digni- fied class President of 1914. The rest of this ancient diary had been so badly mutilate(l by the cannibals on the island where it was foun l that it is not [jossiblt? to read it. —Edith Linck. " 14.
