' SEQGEANT-ATAARMS MUSKEGON Gfass isfory Y One cold, s11owy evening in January, 1970, while most of the people in the city were hugging the fire, there seem- ed to be something at Muskegon Sen- ior High School which was attracting about eighty people. It was the first alumni banquet of the class of 1935. This interesting and exciting group gathered in the cafeteria where the banquet was served. Someone remark- ed that the school looked just about the same as it had in days gone by. After the last course had been served, the toastmaster, Bob DeMuro, rose from his chair. "Classn1ates,', he said, 'Tm sure you all remember that silver-tongued ora- tor who was our 12B president. WVhen we were in 12A, he was elected presi- dent of the Student Council. He served our class and the school to the best of his ability, and he has consent- ed to review for us the activities of our class. Therefore, l take great pleasure in presenting to you, Mr. Rolland Rice." There was a loud burst of applause as Rolland rose from his chair. He held up his hand for silence before he started to speak. "I thought I caught a hint of sar- casm in Mr. DeMuro's remark about the 'silver-tongued Ol'2llOl'y,H he said. "But he can't bother me. He never did when we in classes together, and I will not let him bother me now." As Rolland paused for a moment, there was another burst of applause. Rolland looked at the people seated around the long table, and then he went on with his speech. "Our class was organized in 11A. life felt pretty important, and so we elected seven officers. june Madison was the president of the class. Our vice-president was Mabel Cole. I had the misfortune of being elected the MICHIGAN 7 class secretary. David Hume was the treasurer, and Fred Backstrom made a good sergeant-at-arms. Jane Dear- born was our social chairman, and Alouha Young was our Said and Done reporter. "Even thinking about the reception we were give the seniors. We didn't that semester, however. at that early date we were going to do much Uln 12B we had new officers. As Mr. DeMuro told you, I was elected president of the 12B class. Jane Dear- born was elected vice-presidentg Mar- ian Nelson was chosen for the secre- tary's office, Lorraine Johnson was the treasurer, and Ruth Purdy was the social chairman. Douglas Noble re- placed Marian Nelson as the 12B sec- retary. "That semester was the beginning of work for us. YVe had to make plans for the Senior Reception. A com- mittee, headed by June Madison, made arrangements for the great event. "The Senior Reception was a big success. YVC cannot give the persons in charge too much credit. "Our class broke the tradition of a fixed rate of class dues. A motion was passed which provided for the assess- ing of the class members for only the amount of money that was actually needed. "lt wasn't long before we were in 12A. That meant that we must have new officers. Bob DeMuro became our president. David Hume was our vice-president. The secretary was Mar- garet Schroeder. Bill Runzel was elected treasurer, and Clyde Upton was our SC1'gCLlI1t-at-2l1'1I1S. "Our president, Mr. DeMuro, got committee fever, and, in a sudden burst of enthusiasm, lie made almost every other class member a committee of work to rziaii-mn. IVe had a lot do, and our last semester was one of came Com- turned out must have hustle and bustle. Then mencement, and we were into the cold world. We been able to keep our footing, how- ever, because I see so many familiar faces before me." 8 SAID AND DONE As Rolland finished speaking, the haps they were longing for their youth former students applauded him loud- N'Vho can say? ly. Many faces wore thoughtful or Beverley X'Vestover, Chairman wistful expressions. Perhaps these Marie Ringler Lydia Bohn people were living again the past. Per- Clyde Upton A DREAM Doaornv OLsoN, '35 Across the breadth of endless time it came. A gentle murmurg A faint, weird harmony of sound Sprung from the soul of a thousand ages. Subtle whisperingsg The rustle of a lonely pineg Brooding, plaintiveg Dropping the peace of eternity Into life. l lt rose. The music rose. The dash of a thousand violins Through a tempest of throbbing beauty. It rose. The iiery flame of a thousand sunsets Burning a thousand souls. Strength! grandeur! wildness! And still it rose. ln swells of deep Crescendo It caught the war cry of the seasg Savage turbulenceg X'Vild notesg Exultant cries ol' a thousand souls .set free. Then silence The stillness of eternity. I looked into the skies, The silent skies. I caught no murmur of the winds To break that stretch from me to heaven.

Last night we attended Old Grads' Night. This has been an annual event since 1934 and it has grown to be a regular custom and this year, lQ5O, it was greater tl1an ever before. 'lhe class of 1935 had IIICE at supper before coming to the Old Grads' Night Dance. The class was well represented, both at tl1e supper and at the dance. We were wandering around tl1e halls of the old institution when we heard a familiar giggle, and turning, we saw Harold Osmick and his dearly beloved wife, Lorraine Johnson, who informed us that they were free for the night due to the convenience of the services of Miss Catherine DeLong, graduate nurse of the Hackley Hos- pital. Osmick informed us that he is senior partner of tl1e firm Speake- Ossie lce Cream Co. located in Detroit -Tom Speake being the junior part- ner. We wandered down the stairs and on the landing we saw a group of jovial fellows. On approaching them, we noticed that the center of attraction v '-,' as David Hume. Gathered around him were George Deery, Douglas Hamm, and john Brandon. Hume, now a celebrated comic artist, was re- lating one of his usual funny stories to the group. Reverend Deery was listening attentively, undoubtedly gathering material for his next SCITIIOH. Deacon Hamm had that amused twin- lcle in his eye which proved the char- acter of the story. John Brandon, Bachelor of Arts, Qmany artsj was in- serting a few wise-cracks. Strolling into the cafeteria we notic- ed the old bridge club seated around a table. Vernice Andrews, the success- ful actress, held her usual royal Hush. l read in tl1e papers the other day that Miss Andrews had found it necessary MICHIGAN 13 to enlist the services of the great press- agent, Clyde Dephouse. Mrs. Rolland Rice, the former Miss Emma Bowman, was chatting merrily with her friend, Miss Marcella Carlson, society editor of the "Muskegon Obser- ver." Mrs. Rice was commenting on her husband's new book "The Ad- ventures of Mabel Cole," the famous girl athlete. Miss Nina Korndorfer, buyer for the A. E. Colman 8: Company's Fifth Avenue Dress Shop, completed the foursome. Going into the auditorium we were greeted with a burst of syncopated lflyllllll. Paul Nelson and his music from the Riviera Club were entertain- ing. Miss Grace Flickema was his featured vocal soloist. At the WVHMS microphone, Eric Bourdo, the com- mentator for the ABS was giving a description of the gaiety which pref vailed on the dance floor. As we ap- proached him to say, "Hello," he in- troduced Douglas C. Noble, crooner of stage and radio fame and Lucille Stauf- fer, who so eloquently presents the "Lady Esther" products. Louis Flora, renowned gigolo, was dancing with Miss Medrith Hirsch, society leader of North Muskegon. NVe noticed a smooth-gliding couple into the spotlight. When they turned we found them to be Mike Czarniecki, proprietor of the Riviera Club, and 1-'rances Sheringer, beauty specialist. Mrs. Tom Fothergill, the former Jane Dearborn, was dancing with her hus- band. The tempo of the music chang- ed and we saw Don Caswell, well- known traveler and lecturer, and Ruth Purdy gracefully circling the floor in tl1e South American Tango. Ruth now posing for advertisements for the famous B 8: B Beauty Soap, manu- factured by Backstrom 8c Berglund Co. iVe proceeded to secure a seat in the auditorium for we found that the floor show was about to begin. The Hoon' sl1ow was opened witl1 a piano solo by Lydia Bol111 wl1o played Robert Stongs latest composition. XfVe were very much amused by Arthur Stenholm's .., SAID AND noni: sketches, a few of which he did for the audience. Our old friend, joe Matel, was still acting as Master of Ceremonies. He presented a prize to Miss Beverly X'Vestover for having come the greatest distance. Miss YVestover is a missionary to China. The prize was a watch given by Anderson, Run- lel tc Seastiom, jewelers. Alouha Young and Bob DeMuro, comedy team, entertained with a witty sketch. Joe Matel introduced the fam- ous Bear back-field consisting of Robert Picard, Richard Risk, Bill johnson, and George Arnold. Marcella Vanlanten and Grace Valk, bridge professionals, gave a very interesting talk. June Madison and Marian Nel- son closed the show with several clever iinpersonations and dialogues. We went into the cafeteria again for a wee bit of lunch. XfVe had some of that tasty Swedish pastry made by Anderson, Dalquist lk johnson. NVe talked to Miss Nila Grinnell and Miss Lila DeYoung, co-managers of the high school cafeteria. Across the table we saw a familiar face and on second look recognized it as that of Mr. Artliur Sieplinga and his wife, the former Clara Botruff, who had come all the way from Minnesota to attend Old Grads' Night. Mr. Sieplinga is the proud possessor of two large flour mills. Miss Margaret Enkelmann and Miss Evelyn Hoffman, successful women lawyers, sat at the next table. NVe noticed their happy smiles and recall- ed that they had just saved Clifford l.ind some money in a law suit arising from an automobile trade. On our way out of the cafeteria we met joe and Ruth Lenenga who have inherited a huge fortune from a deceased rela- tive. joe is now a famous sportsman, devoting most of his time to the Harmsworth Trophy Races. Ruth has devoted herself to social work. Mr. l,enenga informed us that he had met Mr. Herbert I.ans, director of the Dc- troit. Symphony Orchestra. Miss Klare X'Veerstra and Miss Marie Sonnega, benefactors of the Home lor Unmarried XVomen which is run by Miss Sylvia Kopeloff, gave us a synopsis of this project. A man, swinging his arms in a very peculiar fashion, attracted our atten- tion. lt. was Edward Ttileja, profes- sional golfer, demonstrating to Clyde Lipton, retired business man, how to handle a niblick. Art Skoglund and George Johnston, famous scientists, looked on in astonished bewilderment. Miss Margaret Schroeder, private secretary to a Norge ofhcial, stopped to talk. XVith her was Miss Henrietta VanDyke, also a Norge employee. lhey went on to speak to Dorothy lsitchen and Madeline Dulibon who are city employees, Miss Kitchen being County Clerk and Miss Dulibon a sec- retary at the City Hall. Norval Erickson, Sheriff of Muske- gon County, was discussing crime with Frank McGowan, Chief of Police. Listening with interest were Ernest Matthews and Lloyd Raskey, Muske- gon business men. .-Xs we left the building we saw Miss Marie Ringler, YVelfare Director, and Miss Helen Nedeau, a teacher at Mc- Laughlin School, walking with Frank Johnson, manager of one of Muske- gon's largest department stores. Just behind them, with their escorts, were Miss Phyllis Vanderlaan who is an in- structor in a Grand Rapids dancing school, and Miss Dorothy Olson who owns a very exclusive children's clothes shop in Detroit. Nile rode home with Raymond John- son, manager of the Occidental Hotel. Clyde Dephouse, chairman Frank Johnson Lila DeYoung Nila Grinnell There were 388 American made trucks and cars imported into Japan in 1933, according to the United States Department of Commerce. Pieces of fossil wood found 2oo feet underground near Placerville, Calif., have been identified as trees of the Niocene epoch, 1i,ooo,ooo years ago. l l MUSKEGON, MICHIGAN l f r l G? Qyrestcfelzfs Krzfufe As I approach graduation, I am con- 0 scious ot but two emotions-the one of X x l which is joy, the second, sorrow. I am glad, happy, that after thirteen long years of learning we are consider- ed able enough to work our way in the world. l enjoy being one of an army set free twice a year to conquer the world and I leave with the feeling that we shall conquer or be conquered only alter a long and difficult struggle. I look forward to that battle. But the deeper feeling by far, is that of sorrow, and this feeling all 12A's experience. XVe all deeply regret leaving behind our good friends, friends we have made among both faculty and students. I think that we shall seldom see in the future as good friends as we have made among our teachersg true helpful friends they have been and we appreciate it. Then also are our friends among the students whom we shall meet later as business associates. These we shall miss as school friends, meeting only seldom and drifting farther apart as time goes by. This fact, that we must lcave our friends, is to me a great loss that graduation forces upon us and makes graduation more difficult. l wish to thank the whole faculty f"Y",'!,-- for the help they have given us during I l the past three years and Mr. Nlanning Q especially for his interested, kind- hearled help.

MUSKEGON -yaissmt-, FABIAN LAVEQUE RICHARD - FREYE -319- In the deep, damp gloom of a thick and wild stretch of hemlocks, the old Frenclnnan had built his shantyg I say 'fold Frenchman" because his wind tanned, leathery hide, seasoned by many years of exposure to the ele- ments, and steeped in the wood smoke of innumerable campfires, was tell- tale evidence of a long life spent in the wilds. I can see him yet, pipe in hand, sitting in his tilted back chair by the door of his shanty puffing his pipe methodically and blowinsf the dark blue smoke in heavy wreaths about his head, smoke which was lost in the en- circling 'doom of the hemlocks. His shanty was 'built of slabs from an old saw mill dock. The interior was dark, almost gloomy, and smelled as though musty with age, for never rt ray of sunlight seemed to break through the barrier of hemlock boughs overhead. A spring some distante away furnished water for drinking and cooking in summer, while snow answer- ed the purpose in winter. In the summer he lived on berries, fish, and such woods pastries as flap-- iacks and sour-dough biscuits. No doubt such delicacies as mushrooms, water cress, herbs, and in the fall, nuts and wild honey, tended to break the monotony of his diet, for he seemed to possess some intricate knowledge of nature that he did not disclose to those who met him. He never hunted and MICHIGAN 27 he never trapped though the woods abounded in game, and he always seemed glad to receive the muskrat carcasses tl1at I offered him, and he converted into quite palatable food. To me he was somewhat of a mys- tery, for he was never quite open and frank, and he always spoke with an air of reserve that seemed to shade but not entirely conceal the shadowy haze that was lns past lile. As I have be- fore remarked, he never went hunt- ing, but hanging on two pegs just above the door was an ol'd"'Sperfeer, well oiled and sleek, which showed that it was well cared for. YVhy the old man kept such a gun, and ao- parently kept it ready for instant use, was sometlnng that I constantly won- dered on. Was the old man afraid? lf so, of what? Ifor certainly no timid man who would WVZIIIK to be within reach of a loaded gun at all times. would voluntarily live in such a lonely place. The next time my business took me near the Frenchmanls shack, I stopped in to have a chat with him. I had brought him some salt, flour, and lard, as he had requested me to do on my previous visit, and as I set the things on the shelf that was reserved for such purposes, he silently paid me for them in silver. As we talked about this and that, I referred to the old time "smoke wagonl' that hung above the door and asked him if he ever intended to hunt bulfaloes. Before he could answer or perceive my intentions, I removed the rifle from the pegs and carefully draw- ing back its hammer to safety, I flick- ed open the breech. Out snapped the long brass cartridge and did a tail spin to the floor. I stooped, picked it up, and glanced at its owner. His face still registered the last faint trace of alarm and his wide staring eyes were rapidly changing to pin points of fire. Then, with a careless gesture he regained his self-control and told me the gun was an old keep-sake and that if I cared for it, I might take it along. The rest of the visit was of little importance, I told him of the important news of the last two weeks, and he in turn in- 28 SAID AND DONE formed me that he had located a bee tree, and that if I wished I could help him cut it. I did a week later and we got nearly forty pounds of honey which we split fifty-fifty. The next time I met him was nearly three weeks after we had cut the bee tree, and it was indeed a memorable occasion as you shall soon see. On the day that we had cut the tree he had given me a list of supplies that he wanted me to bring him the next time I came by. Included in this list was the request that I bring him some writing materials. NVhen I left the supplies, mostly grub, at his shack he was I1Ot there, so I left them on the table and went on. I stopped in on my way back, ex- pecting that perhaps he had a letter for me to mail for him. I opened the door without knocking and stepped inside. He was seated at the half-cleared table, a lamp throwing its sickly light over the paper and making fantastic sha- dows on the wall. So deeply absorbed in his writing was he, that he didn't bother to raise his head, but nodded to me sort of abstractedly. I took a seat in silence and stared at the lamp while all the while he scratched away with his pen, until the paper was Hlled, then sat staring at the lamp in pro- found thought. He was the first to break the silence. "You know, jack, its an awful thing for an old man like me to have to live alone like this, never seeing anyone, never hearing from homef' He paused a moment and then went on, "Thirty years ago I was as carefree a lumber jack as ever birled a log. I was a champion then, and a wicked man in a iight." He paused a moment to park some rough cut into the blackened bowl of his corn cob. Holding it in- verted over the lamp, he puffed until the tobacco glowed, then he resumed his talk. 'iLife as a shanty boy was hne as long as the timber lasted, but when the last big companies pulled stakes from the upper peninsula I went back to Montreal. Later I Hshed on the Grand Banks." He stopped and stared silently at the floor. The fire was nearly out, so I got up and threw in some more wood. The spell was broken. During the rest of the evening l could not get him to talk on the subject, although he talked freely enough on other sub- jects. It was late in February when I again caught him in a reminiscent mood. HCertainly a man of your experience must have some interesting stories to telljl I said. "Did you ever "drive" the Muskegon or the Saginaw?" 'KX'Vell,y' he replied slowly, "I couldnit tell you much of my past life, because of interest, nothing much happened but there is a story that I could tell about two Frenchmen on the "banks" that might interest you. "Their names, as I lfabian Laveque andw-. The two of them were part owners in the Canadian Queen, a small fishing boat of about I5 ton. lt was in the middle of Octo- ber, a heavy fog was rolling in off the "banks,I' and the small vessel was hove- to off the coast of Newfoundland wait- ing for the fog to lift so that they could continue to St. Johns, where the vessel was to be laid up for the winter. The riding lights had been lighted, and the two men sat in the narrow cabin playing chess. The game lost its interest however, because the long swells that swept in from the north Atlantic caused the boat to pitch to a degree that scattered the chess men across the Hoor too often to be tolerated. The fog failed to lift, and the time began to hang heavily on the two n1en's hands. Finally Laveque thought of the pair of rapiers that had been the property of his father, and now reposed in the locker that he was sitting on. He brought them forth and they cleared the table and lighted the battered old copper ship's lantern and hung it from a beam over the center of the table, which was fastened secure- ly to the floor and could not be moved. Stripped to the waist they took their stand, one on each side of the table and carefully gripped their weapons and eyed each other, calculating each recall, were MUSKEGON other's moves and how to counter-act them. fUnderst,and, now, this was only a means of relieving the monotony of the long waiting, and neither man intended to hurt the other.j Then the light began, thrust and parry and thrust again! The stender blades crossed and recrossed, struck fire at every blow. The heavy breath- ing of the two men, the shuflie of the sea boots upon the cabin floor, combin- cd with the clash of their blades to pro- duce an air of tense expectancy. The sickly yellow light from the lantern added a still more awe inspiring touch to the scene, for their shadows danced like devils on the walls behind them, eager to direct a fatal thrust! And then it happened! Even as the two men were about to call it a draw and com- mend each other on his ability, the vessel pitched violently on its beams ends, Hinging--backward against the cabin wall and throwing Laveque for- ward against the table. --dropped his guard as he strove frantically to catch his balance and I,aveque's blade pin- ned him to the wall. Slowly his hngers released their hold on the blade and it clattered to the floor, while with his other hand he strove to free himself. Frantically, desperately, his fingers clawed the steel, then falteringly they fell to his side. --fell across the table dead! It was not true! no, no! --could not be dead! XfVhy one moment before he had stood across the table, smiling confidently and returning every thrust quick as a wink, but now he lay mo- tionless and limp across the ta'ble, blood slowly seeping from beneath his chest and spilling to the Hoor with every motion of the ship. XVhat could he do, what would the authorities think? Fabian Laveque cast one more glance at his prostrate companion and then fled on deck. The air was cool and fresh, the fog was lifting, and here and there a star showed through the haze. The cool damp air smote him in the face and cleared his brain and he began to think of the near future. Surely he MICHIGAN 2g could not proceed to St. johns, for they would hang him as high as a kite as soon as the body was found. He could not arrive there alone, for how could he explain the absence of his companion and the blood stains in the cabin? These thoughts and many more ran through Fabian I,aveque's mind before he finally selected the plan that he would Put into execution. No sooner did he have this plan definitely in mind than he set out to fulfill it. After raising the sail and extinguish- ing the riding lights, he crouched by the wheel in a IIHHCC, striving to probe the dim future, to lay his plans once he reached land, and to devise some means of eluding the police who would surely pick up his trail. Never during the rest of the trip did he leave the wheel. Never did he glance again into the cabin to see the fearful corpse across the table." Pausing in the story long enough to turn the wick up and knock the ashes out of his pipe, he continued, packing fresh tobacco into the blackened bowl of his pipe with a horny thumb as he talked. "Fabian Laveque abandoned the ship on the Canadian mainland and fled. He has never been heard of since. He has lived in exile when he might have prospered in peace. Look at this." He thrust a newspaper clipping in my face. One that had been torn from a paper I had brought him recently. The article briefly stated that a Frenchman, had recently died, and that another Frenchman, Fabian Laveque, had years before wounded him in a duel and left him for dead. A long and earnest search had followed, but Laveque had never been found. It was believed that Laveque had died of exposure and starvation in the wilderness short- ly after the deed and for that reason had never been found. All this I read rapidly, then ex- claimed "YVhy this is about the same man that you were telling about, Laveque never really killed --then did he?" "No," my host replied," but he never knew until now, and as he lived his 30 SAID AND DONE life accordingly, it was this newspaper clipping that brought the affair to my mind." The real meaning of his story never entered my mind until a week later when I visited his shack I found it in ashes. New fallen snow had blanketed the scene with a serene whiteness that hid at least partially the twisted steel and charred timbers that marked the spot. At first I believed the hre was accidental and wondered why I had not heard of it before, but the old spencer rifle leaning against a hemlock soon told"'the' t'aleL On a paper folded and placed beneath the hammer of the gun were these words. 'iFabian Laveque has gone home." From where the rifle stood a faint snow shoe trail led north. Straight as the trail of a fox the faint depression led towards the home of Fabian Laveque.

VVho was the famous-or was he famous?-English-or was he Ameri- can?-writer who once said that if one is to write an essay that will stand the test of time one should choose a sub- ject closest to one's heart? XVell, any way it makes no matter who said it since it is the idea expressed in which I am interested, for the other evening alter an hour of steady gnawing on my already pulpy pen, with a few mean- ingless remarks on the white, lined paper before me, I was struck with the idea and promptly proceeded ink- ily to rave in my rambling fashion on the subject of which I am most fond- myself. In a rather conservative estimate I might venture to state at the outset that in my own opinion, which I gen- erally concede to be quite good, I am a rather nice person. Mind now, there is no note of conceit in this statementg rather I say it with the noble intentions of putting myself and my readers on an equal footing before I go off a deep end. Long before I ever was, my mother- to-be dreamed of having a future presi- dent for her child, not a new idea at that, but even at this early pre-age I made two definite mistakes, which soon placed me in that unfortunate group of human beings often indelicately termed as off-springs. The Hrst mis- take occurred in my being a girl, the second in my being at all. The years of my existence from one to four are rather vague for the most part, but from what I gather from hearsay, I was a squally, toe-biting en- fant terrible, so I shan't elaborate on MUSKEGON, MICHIGAN 31 those years. It really doesn't matter though since the years following were the ones in which my character was moulded. From snapshots and personal recol- lections I can quite accurately depict mysell' as the following: .X comically rotund little figure with straight, mud-colored hair, cut in the popular "Dutch bob" of tlte Colleen Moore Iira, a slightly too retroussee organ ol' smell fthe result of an un- expectedly violent collision with the lioorj, an inconceivable passion lor spitting fugly wordlj at passersby, a fA ruts. , 42? few , '12 r 8 Il r , q - Sam "I fed mq little cousin Jimvntu Angle worms on Toesciaqs cute little trick of seeing lions while Ulll on my daily walk and a philosophy ol' lile which included going to Sunday School regularly every Sunday with live pennies for the heathen so God wouldn't be mad when I fed my little cousin Jimmie angleworms on Tues- days. XVhen I attained the maturity of eleven solemn years the "cute little trick ol' seeing lions" had developed into the marvelous feat of proving to certain gullible youngsters my indenti- ty as a relation to kings and queens. 'l'hat, I believe, sums up quite nicely my scarlet past, so on to the larva stage ol' my career. 'I'o summarize my character as it i-3 at present is not difficult. In a few words, I am an animated piece of pouf, with variations, quite a distinguished description, bitt quite sans distinction, I assure you. It was not long ago I received a rude awakening to that fact. Quite by accident I overheard a coa- iersation concerning mysell' and gath- ered that my main asset, was in biting away with murder." I this world ol' survival ol' able to "get grinned. In the littest, it would seem I had some chance. On second thought it occured to me that Dillinger had 'tgotten away with murder," in a manner ol' speak- ing, and where did it get him? lt might be wise to insert at this point a subtle insinuation to thc ellect that I am still a rather nice young lady, just in case my personality may have been undermined somewhat. Proof of a mathematical initrd can be found even in some ol' my earlier exploits: one in particular, I recall, when I pursuaded all the young in- nocents of the neighborhood to enter partnership with me in selling wild llowers. Our irate mothers learned of our business venture and promptly put the parental foot of disapproval on the whole affair, thus ellectively murdering a flourishing business, but not before we had gleaned l'orty-three cents Qof which I claimed thirty-hvej from unsuspecting customers. My honesty has never been doubted. but I suspect that it.'s not because no one ever wanted to. As to qualities of leadership, poise, and social abilities, well, I'm an ex- cellent leader, bitt no one ever agrees with my point of view so I never have any followersg I have an abundance of poise, but in my excitement at being in the presence of other people, I lose it: and social abilities just weren'r added to my "extra curricular list. I have one pet word which I apply to anything I don't like or don't under- stand. That word is "stupid", and if said with the right inflection implies no end of things, quite in keeping with my character. The fitting and proper thing to do now is to draw this piece of literary creation to a sudden, sweet end, so. contrary to my usual custom I shall do so, but not, however, before I make my last stand. I still think I'm rather a nice person. 32 SAID AND DONE .3-J ' ' f' it BY 't am PICAEMQ I hope to finish with this semesters graduating class, and already I am feeling blue, because I have to leave the school. I suppose I could deliber- ately fiunk a class or two, but that would be a disgrace to the family name, and after all graduating is part of the school activities. The reason I am blue is that I will be lost, when I cannot get up every morning at seven o'clock, and hear mother calling me, and washing, dress- ing, and eating in a hurry, so as to be to school on time. I will miss the brisk walk to school every morning, and that game, of guessing thet tempera- ture as we walked past a certain gas station on our way to school. I know I will miss the fruits and flowers we used to borrow from the residents of a certain street in Muskegon. And in the winter time I will probably lose the art of throwing snow balls. QI was considered one of the best shots in our sans-D I will miss the day dreaming, the longing to be outdoors, the familiar noise in the halls, trying to bluff the teachers, the thrill of skipping a class or probably one whole day fthat is one of my favoritesj. The assemblies, snake dances, school parties, and whist- ling in the hall, will be a thing of the past. But I believe what I will miss most is the friendships, and the easy way one can meet or become acquainted with other students while in school. By experience I know those outside of school are not so friendly. I will miss the athletics, baseball, basketball, and football. One can al- ways play these games out of school, but there is something missing, I can- not name it definitely, but anyone who has taken part in school athletics can sense it. The friendly railing and spirit is gone. lfrom what I hear from teachers, parents, and principals, the outside world is still more interesting and dif- ficult, and graduating will give me my chance at it. .-Xlthough I will long for high school days again, they will be a thing of the past, and since one can- not go back and do it over, I will have to be content with just memories. TR.-XNQUILIIITY The gold that gilds the world at end of day, Mellows with imperishable power, the hardness of a heart, The molten shafts that drop below, beckon to quiet play, And gives me in my lowly state, a re- newed, happy start. That ethereal peace that hides the world at eventide, Bears on spiritual wings my peaceful soul, .-Xnd seeks all my terrestrial cares to hide, And screens from me the inevitable goal. The brooks darkened by the dye stufis ol' the skies, Lose their playful mood, and slip slow- ly down the mountain side. Long, lavender shadows fling them- selves along the rise, .-Xnd the lonely pine raises its somber locks, The wanderer to guide. Darkness like a pall, settles o'er the earth at shadow time, The moon, a plated halo, silently beams above, The velvety darkness is truly a sign That over all, reigns love.

I live near a cemetery, and one night as I was walking by it on my way home, l beheld quite a commotion. Tomb- stones were being thrown around by ghosts. At first when I saw them, my hair stood straight up and down, my teeth chartered, and my knees knocked in spite of all I could do. YVhcn I saw, however, that they were not interested in me, I approached a ghost that was watching the scene with the greatest talm and asked him if he knew what it was all about. At first he was very reserved and close mouthed about it, as spooks are supposed to be, but, after a while my persuasive powers acted as a can opener, and I got all the facts. "It, is this way-','l the spook explained, "all the spooks are having a strike be- cause they are not getting enough wages for spooking. They also claim that the N.R.A. code for spooking is being violated. They are striking for less hours and more wages. The em- ployers, however, cannot pay more wages because they haven't the money. So you see how it is, the spooks will not haunt unless they get more wages, and the employer spooks canlt pay more wages. Unless we get outside aid, spooking will stop." By this time tomb- stones were being flung in our direc- tion and as I warded ofl a small stone, l thought how very much safer it would be for me to put distance be- tween me and the ghosts, so I 'ftook it on the lam" for home. The next morning everything was bright and clear. I thought of the hap- MICHIGAN 33 pemngs of the night before, and I de- rided to go and see how the cemetery had stood the commotion. X'Vhen f arrived, lo and behold, every tomb- stone was in its right place and, but for the bruise on my arm, I would have thought that it was all a dream. .Ks to the outcome of the strike, I do not think they got outside aid because it is very seldom that you hear of a person being haunted nowadays. 001' 5 GORDON VANYVYK, '36 "A barrier of boards or of another material, usually turning on hinges or sliding, by which an entranceway to a house or an apartment is either open- ed or closed" is a door according to XVebster. But let's think of doors in the sense of being more than im- plements. There never is a depression among doorsg they are always employed and busy. Open, shut, a little ajar, their position changes over and over during a day. Their field of Work is not over- crowded, but there are enough doors to go around, very few being unused. Think how many belong to their line of work. There are about twenty-five of them in our house alone, and multi- plying this by the number of homes in .-Xmerica, your total is a very large number. Doors make many acquaintances, and many are the types of people for whom they open, especially those doors employed in public buildings. They see many kinds of faces during the routine of their monotonous duty, and there is often a change in a face bc- tween the time it enters and the time it leaves. For instance, one door down- town saw a young man enter, full of enthusiasm, expecting to put the fin- ishing touches to a deal that if put over, would promote him a few notches in his company: but he left, downcast and defeated by the change of mind of his customer. The door in the em- ployment bureau sees many disap- 3,1 sA1D.fxND DONE pointed faces, but it is often cheered by the happy smile on the face of a man receiving a job. Sometimes people are too aloof to open their own doors, but must have liveried doormen to open them. Often- tinies their faces are slapped when hur- rying persons unconsiderately slam them. But yet through all their treat- ment, they uncomplainingly serve their purpose and their ungrateful employ- er, man. WVe all have different toned voices, and so do doors. I can usually tell by the sound which door in the house is being closed. You can also soon learn to distinguish between the sound of your own back-door and that of either of your neighbors. just as some people have high-pitched voices, while others have low, just so some doors slam with a high-pitched ringing tone while others close with a dull thud. And besides doors offer you their services when you employ them. They keep out the cold, bad weather, flies, and protect you and your property from any prowling strangers. Thus they are employed much as real em- ployees, and they have beheld interest- ing experiences about which they could tell. P' I'66l5LlI'6 VOVZ JACK NEWMAN, '36 He's got a nook that's just the place for rainy days and "blue interludes", Treasure Trove of souvenirs, located in a friendly dresser drawer in his own room. Itls not a pretentious article of furn- iture, nor is it situated in the heart of a palatial mansion. In fact, it's a very ordinary chiffonier, but in its ample 'bosom it clutches a myriad of memories dear to his boyish heart. To each souvenir clings an indelible legend. I-Iere each article nestles in its pro- per place. In a fancy red and black box, that was originally intended to hold a Christmas belt, are multifarious odds and ends. Golf tees, the pile of springs, gears, and crystals that once were two watches fprice 99c eachj, a "Me YfVhoosis for Governor" pin, and a host of empty, dull-copper, shells gathered from the "Alibi C-un Club". In a significant position atop a stack of books, perches a dime copy of "Try and Trust" by the modern Ben Frank- lin, Horatio Alger, junior. Inside the cheap front cover, on the reverse side of a P. T. A. notice, is the priceless autograph of Harold Gatty, written in the back wash from the propeller of the globe-girdling IfVinnie Mae. A pink ticket stub draws the eye to a dusty corner. On the stub is print- ed, "University vs. State College, Oct- ober 31, 1925'l. The ladls brows fur- row as he tries to recall the game. Then with a reminiscent grin the scene returns from the dim, dark past. just an urchin of seven he was being jostled by a cruel crowd as he tried to find a loophole through which to slip and see the big game. Then his fairy godfather appeared in the form of a fat, red-nosed millionaire attired in gray spats, who shoved this ticket into his arctic fist, and said, "Co see the game, kidn. The smile broadened as he remem- bered how he sat on the hfty yard line amid the state's "big-shots", a simple flower of white among a luxurious garden of orchids. Other flotsam and jetsatn, floating about in the drawer: the picture of :1 sun-tanned cowboy, given him by his artist-aunt, at the age of four, a pair of Y'VooIworth goggles with the glass missing from one eye pieceg a page of Morse Code, torn from a Boy Scout handbook, and a newspaper clipping, relating how he had broken a leg while sliding the day before Christmas. . . . . . . that is Treasure Trove, where ghosts of the past remain to sweep the cobwebs from his memories.

If you have--don't. Don't tell a soul about it! Because no matter what kind of a project it is, you'll be far more likely to carry it out if you keep it strictly under your hat. lt's true, be- lieve it or not. To be sure, the idea isn't new. For years and years wits have wise-cracked about talkers and doers, and we've all heard scores of proverbs as: "Cackling hens lay no eggs," etc., though ITIOSI ot us have never taken these sayings very seriously. One of our pet failings is talking things over with anyone and everyone we feel might be sympathetic toward our ambition. And we're con- tinually being bored by people who gabble about the wonderful things they've done, or one of these days are going to do. It seems as though the really suc- cessful are about the only people who are reluctant to discuss their work. VVouldn't any reporter you asked tell you that getting an interview with 9. truly great personage was nothing short DONE 36 of a feat? Yes. Yet such people, so dis- appointingly uncommunicative, are the ones famed far and wide for their accomplishments. XVhile our own plans that we've talked over with others, all too often come to naught. Haven't you many times been all steamed up to do something, and then, when you told someone, it seemed to take the wind completely out of your sails? And though no one really dis- couraged you, confess, wasn't it harder to get to work at it after you'd talked about it a lot? Why? Because your "steam"--the enthus- iasim you accumulate by continually thinking about an idea--furnishes the motive power for its accomplishment, Every time you let out your thoughts, you let out a portion of your steam too, until it finally dwindles to nothing. But if, instead, you keep that idea securely locked up, you'1l keep on thinking about it, your enthusiasm will pile up and up until it becomes at force' so powerful that it drives you into action, making your dream a reality. After all, the only commendable reason for talking things over with anyone, is to get advice. But unless you happen to be so fortunate as to have an unusually wise person in whom to confide, you lose far more than you gain. The world is full of people drifting this way and that, be- cause they try to follow other's advice, rather than thrash things out for them- selves. And it isn't necessary at all, because if you have the brain to get a good idea, you also have the mental capacity to work out that plan in its best possible way. By thinking things out for yourself, too, you acquire one of life's most val- uable assets--self-reliance! Too many of us are losing that priceless possession these days because it is so easy to de- pend on others. This is a pity, be- cause the biggest thrill anyone can hope to get out of life, comes from do- ing something worthwhile on one's own! 37 MUSKEGO So ride your ambition for all it's worth, but keep your goal a secret. JEANNETTE DRIVER, '36 FAREVVELL For the past two or three semesters we have been watching friends and acquaintances leave with their diplo- mas. XVe were sorry to see them go. It seemed to us that they took with them something that could never be replaced. Some of them returned for post-graduate work, but it seemed as if they had changed. They were still friendly, but they did not belong to our group. Now we are graduating. Perhaps some of the students in Muskegon Sen- ior High School will miss us. W'e do not know. IVe are sorry to leave. lVe have become acquainted with many students who do not belong to our class. YVe shall be sorry to leave them behind. Although we are sorry to go, we know that we cannot stay. Out in the world there is something waiting for each member of our class. Each senior has a long way to go before he will arrive at his destination. Some will arrive early: others will be late. IVe do not want to stay. YVe are searching for new adventure. Some- thing is calling us-something that is greater than we are. We want to try our wings. And so we bid farewell to all whom we have known, for gradua- tion is farewell. Beverly M. Westover, ,35 He was a good-natured Irishman, and was one of a number of men employed in erecting a new building. The owner of the building said to him one day: "Pat, didn't you tell me that a brother of yours is a lawyer?" "Yis, sor," replied Pat. "And you a hod carrier! The goods things of life are not equally divided, are they?" "No, sor," said Pat. "Poor fellow! My brother couldn't do this to save his loife!" N, MICHIGAN MYSTERIOUS REPORTER INell, well, here it is almost gradua- tion time! At this point we are won- dering about a lot of things-for in- stance if we're going to graduate or not. IVe also wonder if Muriel Ros- enberg is as crazy as ever about a cer- tain blonde tenth grader-but of course we'd never mention that. Then again we wonder who won the argument that Mike Czarniecki and Art Colman had with each other as to which of them was the better dancer. Ah, Ah. me! Life is just one unsolved mystery after another. Clyde Dephouse C"what, you haven't heard of Dephouseluj is feeling very depressed to think he is really going to graduate. He just can't bear to leave the old place-he's grown so fond of it these last few years. Those malicious little bits of con- densed nothingness-gossip books- are in vogue again, and from this source we learn that Bob Simpson is quite a handsome chap, that Frannyliischer has "nice eyes," and that Jimmy Eklund is a good dancer. IVe learned quite a lot of other things, too, not a few of which we can't print here. YVe hear that Tracy Girdler spends a good deal of his time now running down town to catch the North Musi- kegon bus.
