It might have been pure, clean water before he drank, but certainly not afterward, for he figured that if he put his mouth right on the bubbler, he would not have to make so much effort in drinking and also, wouldn't be obliged to wipe his mouth with his handkerchief. Pretty good efficiency as far as saving energy, but as far as san- itation goes, absolutely wrong. When told that this was a good way to spread disease, he replied, "O, I'm not afraid, I'll take a chance." That's just Where the trouble is. The boy was interested merely in himself. The next person, one of careful habits, might not want to take such a chance, but can- not help being a victim of the first boy's thoughtlessness. When in public places, be careful what you do. A moment's thought might prevent weeks of sickness. If you plead the ex- cuse that you didn't know, the common verdict of the people will be, "Ignorance is as bad as wilfully committing the deed." F. K. The stories in this issue are those se- lected from the numerous contributions for the Sassamon contest. The prizes were contributed by the members of the faculty and were divided as follows: First, 355.003 two seconds, 32.50 each, and five 31.00 prizes. This division of the money into smaller prizes was done with a purpose- namely to interest more pupils and to arouse a more hearty response. It is grat- ifying to note that twenty-eight stories were submitted. The basketball squad wishes to express their thanks to Mr. Archibald, for the Am- herst trip, which he so thoughtfully planned for them. The boys realize and appreciate also the fact that it was through the gen- erosity of the merchants and prominent men of Natick that the trip was financially possible. College life and its advantages may be talked about, and attendance urged, but it takes an experience such as ours to make it truly real and vital. We saw there in a Wonderful way, an example of the spirit for which we are working here. This was evident on the campus, at the fraternity houses, and in all contests. We were particularly fortunate to be en- tertained at the various frat houses. The boys were untiring in their efforts to please us. My hope is that some of the under class men may have the same opportunities that we enjoyed. Again, thanks and apprecia- tion to Mr. Archibald and our citizen friends. ROBERT ESTY. S A, ,, 9 N 7.1 Mfg' Past: LITERARY :reissue 'QF 5059! 54 fgirt gg, PRIZE CONTEST , Q SPRING First Prize The night was clear. The silver moon, round and full, cast a watchful eye over the silent earth. Stars, twinkling and bright, seemed to make the vast distance of earth and sky even greater. A faint rustle was heard, tiny bells tin- kled and a troop of fairies, clad in glisten- ing white, stole quietly to their castle, a castle of ice, dim, mystic, lighted only by moon and stars. The entrance revealed within a small open space. In the distance, barely discernible, a narrow path of bluish hue, wound in and out. Bending trees adorned the sides, and as the fairies en- tered, dancing rainbow colors overspread all. They had come to discuss the coming of spring. The gay princess fairy' took her accustomed place. Trippingly the other fairies grouped around her, while with up- turned faces, and folded hands they lis- tened to her with eager interest. Ah, they'd be glad to change their gowns of glistening white to dainty new costumes of pale spring colors. Yes, and they must find another palace, perhaps in the quiet of the forest, in a dusky cave, where the splash of rip- pling water would be heard, or in a valley bedded with mosses. The fairies, tired with their planning, at last became drowsy, and resting against one another, the small up-turned faces I drooped, and the bright eyes were closed in slumber. Quietness was supreme ruler of the castle. A joyous sunbeam peeped in at the en- trance. Drip, drop, drip. The jolly old sun had crept up from the hill and was way up in the sky. What did it all miean? Were they dreaming, or was their castle really melting? The princess fairy rubbed her sleepy eyes, then a cool drop dripped on her face, pushed away the hazy thoughts, and with a start she scrambled up, clasped in her hand the fairy wand, gracefully waved it over the sleeping faces, and, alas the spar- kling castle could be seen no more. Soon the whole fairy troop were wide awake. They looked with wonder at their princess. In place of her snowy costume she wore one of sparkling colors. Then to their amazement they happily discovered their own,-pale green, violet, yellow, del- icate pink and blue. Soon they would be gathering fragrant May flowers, and mak- ing daisy and buttercup wreaths. Joyous- ly they hastened away in search of a new palace. Bright days followed. The clear blue sky was all the bluer for soft feathery clouds. The fields and hills were tinted with green, and the wild apple trees were massed with color. The jubilant fairies, enthralled by the lovely spring, wandered through the woods. A little brook, awake from its long sleep, beckoned them, and near it, round a fra- THE SASSAMON PAGE ELEVEN grant apple tree the fairies gracefully danced, singing: Oh sweet and happy springtime I With your little babbling brook, That trickles o'er the hillside, Through cool and shady nook. You whirl past bending birch tree And splash round mossy rock, While tiny purple violets Smile at your ceaseless talk. And all the birds of springtime Warble at break of dawn, But you, oh brawly brooklet, Just happily ripple on. MINNIE BERRY. A WINTE.R'S TRAGEDY Second Prize Any traveler entering the town of Hill- side would immediately conclude that the place was appropriately named. To the north rose a precipitous hill. Here and there among the massed boulders showed a patch of scraggly grass or heather. As your gaze follows up the hill, you may, in clear weather, see a small house, hardly more than a shack. In this lived a woman usually termed "The Widow," by the vil- lagers, 'and her son, Billy. "The Widow's" real name was Mrs. Green. She was a frail, gray-haired little woman whose face continually wore a wistful, searching expression. Billy probably inher- ited some of his mother's traits, for he was a quiet, thoughtful, little fellow of about eleven, who seldom mingled with the other boys of his own size. in the village below. Instead, he spent his time wander- ing along the cliffs and ledges of the hill. On these various expeditions he was always accompanied by his inseparable companion, Shep. Shep was a shaggy collie that had just recently been added to the family pos- sessions. It was near winter when the boy started out one day for the other side of the great hill. It was a chill afternoon and he walked jauntily, with. the dog trotting ahead. He had a knife in his hand and was whittling a small stick. In a little less than an hour the pair had reached the other side of the hill, where the grass was in slightly greater proportion than rocks. At the further end of a grassy enclosure stood a cow, lazily cropping the scanty herbage. "Go get her," commanded the boy. The dog circled about the cow, and with much barking and yelping forced her out of the tiny pasture onto the narrow path. The three were steadily making their way homeward when the boy chanced to look up from his whittling. Whistling soft- ly, he gave the cow a couple of sharp prods with his stick and put the knife into his pocket. The three quickened their steps for they were but half way home. The sky was ,now almost wholly overcast. A raw, biting wind had sprung up and the dog hung to the lee side of the boy. By the time they had reached home, it was blowing a bitter gale. Billy drove the cow into an adjoining shed, gave her some- thing to eat, and went out, closing the door behind him. He and the dog ran over to and into the house and slammed the door. Just then it began to snow. All that night and two more days and nights it snowed, a blinding, driving snow, composed of big, wet, heavy fiakes. On the afternoon of the third day a mild thaw started, but three days later another sonwstorm began and lasted half a week. Ik 41 8 A band of lumbermen were going, one day, up the great hill north of Hillside. They had just reached the halfway point of the tiresome climb when one member of them, Wishing to take his mind off the tire- some climb, began to talk about "The Widow." "Say, fellas," he ejaculated, "what's the matter with takin' the widder and Billy to camp wid us? You all know she's a crack- erjack cook and Billy, well-he could drive a sledge!" The suggestion was met with instant ap- proval and the small party talked it over as they laboriously climbed the steep hill. PAGE TWELVE THE SASSAMGN It was finally decided that the suggester was to be the spokesman. At last, after a mile of tiresome wading through snow hip deep, and slush almost a foot deep, they reached the summit. The man foremost in the sombre procession ut- tered a muffled exclamlation. ' "Somebody must have taken the shack away!" he cried. Another member of the sensed the situation and broke into Daffy a run, the others stringing out- behind him. After a short run they reached the place the cabin once stood. where The thaw, after the first snow, had made a soft, slippery slush. A heavy snow had then fallen and the whole mass, with its slippery base started slowly to move down the hill. The great mass gathered moment- um and with characteristic force hurled it- self against the back of the tiny home. Curiously the front wall withstood the shock, but the roof and sides bulged out- ward like paper. The back wall was pressed snugly against the front like a horizontal press. Against the front window, which was still intact, were jammed the lifeless bod- ies of "The Widow" and her son. As this group of lumbermen stood spell- bound for a moment, a thought passed through the mind of each, just as it passed through mine, whether or not the pair had been killed instantly or whether they had just been pinned there to die slowly in un- merciful agony. Who knows? FRED' KUNZ. THAT RADIO Second Prize Mrs. Howard was calmly sweeping the back piazza. Suddenly she heard a terrible noise. It sounded as if someone was fall- ing down the stairs. Bob and Dick, her two sons, came rushing out to her. "Mother," said Dick, "it's my tum---." "No, it isn't either," yelled Bob. "It is too." "It is not." "Boys, boys, what is the matter now?" "Mother," said Bob, pleadingly, "isn't it my turn to tune in on the radio tonight?" "Now, mum, you said I could," Dick yelled at the top of his voice. "Boys, stop this noise at once or I won't let either of you even touch it," Mrs. How- ard sternly replied. This silenced the two boys, for they knew that their mother always kept her word. Each determined to ask father and see what he said. That night at the supper table Mr. How- ard was very much surprised to fmd the boys so quiet. Usually one or the other had to be asked to soften his voice a little. Every once in a while Bob gave his father a pleading look. Mr. Howard could not un- derstand it, but he was soon to find out. When supper was over and the family were ready to listen to the radio, Bob and Dick made a dash to see who could reach it first. Bob was lucky. Dick said nothing, but quietly sat down. "WNAC-The Shepard Stores, Boston." "Did you hear that?" cried Bob, excit- edly. " 'Tisn't very clear. Just turn that dial a little to the right," said Dick, in a know- it-all voice. "Say, who's doing' this?" asked Bob. "Careful, boys," said Mr. Howard, in a quiet voice. "WGI-Medford Hillside-Violin Solo." "Isn't that woman a dandy player!" Dick said, excitedly. "I wish I could play like that." "Depends upon what you call a fine play- er." Then Bob, with a twist of his thumb lost the station. Of course, there was a great hullabaloo. . "Let me try it for a while. l'll get you something worth hearing," said Dick, in that tone that Bob could not stand. "O, go ahead. I suppose we'll have some- thing fine now," said Bob, sarcastically. Dick had better luck than Bob and Mrs. Howard praised himl. You see, Dick was her favorite son. Bob could stand it no longer. With a dash he ran out of the room, down into the cellar and started to shake the furnace. Have you happened to 1 THE SASSAMON PAGE THIRTEEN listen on a radio when someone is shaking a furnace? If it doesn't make you grit your teeth, I'll lose my guess. Bob came up with a great air of triumph. "What are you getting now?" he asked, trying hard to hide a smile. "Oh," replied Dick, "just as you went down to shake the furnace, the station signed off for three minutes. They've just begun again." Dick tried hard, but he couldn't help laughing. Finally peace was declared for ten min- utes. Dick got WEAG in New York. "Say, Dick, you want to turn that dial there a little to the left." "Who's doing this, you or I," cried Dick, in an angry voice. ' "Hal Ha! Makes a diiference who says that, Dick, doesn't it?" "Can you keep quiet for a few minutes?" Dick inquired, in a still angrier voice. "Well, mother," said Mr. Howard, "I guess it is about time we went to bed. It's half past ten." "You're no kind of radio fan, dad," said Bob, with a covered up yawn. "Can't we stay up a while longer?" "No more tonight, boys. The music may have been good, but the only music I heard was that of you and Dick." Then the boys felt ashamed. They thought over the events of the evening. Not very satisfactory. Without another word the boys went quickly to bed. At eleven o'clock peace once more reigned in the Howard house. I wonder what hap- pened the next evening. People who have a radio can use their imagination! ELEANOR HOLDEN. A FRIEND INDEED One afternoon, in early September, four girls were standing outside the Faybrooke High School, engaged in a lively conversa- tion. "It's a mean thing!" declared one mem- ber of the group. "Mean!" this from Jean Preston, "I call it outrageous! To think that the town has built as fine a school as this, and with such a splendid gymnasium and now, you might say, not be able to use it because we lack an instructor." "Well," said Marion Sayre, philosophical- ly, "I suppose that if the town can't afford to pay one, we must go without this year, but maybe next year-." "Next year!" Jean broke in, scornfully, "what good will that do us next year, when we're graduating this year? Besides, it's high time this town did decide whether they can afford one or not. Here it is the sec- ond week of school and the decision was an- nounced only last night. Now, after set- ting our hearts on building up girls' ath- letics in this town, and counting on it ever since they started this new building, our plans go to smash." "Well," said another girl, hopefully, "maybe we will be allowed to use the gym anyway, even without an instructor." "Oh! of course," returned Jean, "but we want to get up a snappy basketball team and we need someone to coach us. I won- der--yes, I believe we can do it." "Do what?" asked the other girls, in chorus. "Well, don't you think that by having a drive, as you might say, that we girls could raise sufficient money to hire an instruc- tor ourselves?" The girls were enthusiastic over the idea and decided to meet that very evening at Jean's house, to plan the details. When the girls were all assembled at Jean's home, that night, she, being the or- iginator of "the idea" set forth her plans at once. "Now," she said, "I have talked it over with the folks and they think we .ought to succeed in this undertaking, so let's pair up and divide the work." Therefore, they planned to cover each street in town. For the first few days of their "campaign- ing," the girls were very enthusiastic, but after four days of this, after school hours, their spirits and interest began to decrease. At each house the plan to obtain a physi- cal instructor for the new school had to be explained, and this was done so much that PAGE FOURTEEN THE SASSAMON Jean declared at the end of a week that she could "recite it in her sleep." Not only was the collecting tiresome, but, as a matter of fact, the donations were not as large as the girls had expected or hoped. Nevertheless, when the town had prac- tically been covered, it was found that only S100 of what the girls had estimated as a necessary amount was lacking. "Having gone as far as this, we must make up that S100 some way," said Jean. "However, there are several places on the outskirts of the town we haven't reached yet and whatever we get there, will help. After that we will have to think up some scheme in order to make up the rest of the money." So the next day found the girls "round- ing up" the untouched places. Jean, being the acknowledged leader of "the crowd," had assigned each girl a par- ticular place to go, leaving to herself a re- mote part of the town with which she was more or less unfamiliar. Jean had gone to only three houses when she was ready to turn back home, because in each the people had been extraordinarily unpleasant, and had expressed their opin- ions in regard to the plan as "ridiculous" After the first reception, such as this, Jean excused it, making the excuse in her mind that maybe their lack of interest was due to not having children in school and their distance from the center of the town, but after the third, she was fairly discouraged and was ready to give up when she caught sight of a little white house farther up the road. It looked so cheerful and inviting that before she knew it, she was ringing the bell. Almost instantly the door was opened by a vited her in. Seated in plained her tering away Suddenly smiling young woman, who in- a sunny little room, Jean ex- visit and soon she was chat- to a sympathetic listener. she jumped up, realizing that half an hour had passed. The stranger had been so interesting that Jean even forgot the object of her call and was leaving, when the lady said, "Won't you accept my dona- tion to the worthy cause? But then, on second thought, I believe I'll send you a check." With this promise ringing in her ears, Jean trudged home happily. On the way she was thinking about the little lady she had just left. Suddenly she remembered that she had not found out her name and then began to get curious, for she recalled the stranger's saying that she moved out to the little white house, because it was such a pleasant and quiet place for her to work. But what sort of work did she do? That question was answered the next day when the check came, which, by the way, easily made up the amount of the fund that was lacking. Jean glanced at the name signed on the check and gasped, "Alice Page, the great writer! And to think that I chatted away to her, of all people, like an old friend." When a slip of paper fiuttered to the floor and Jean found it was an invitation from Miss Page to call again very soon, her mother said, "Evidently she enjoyed your chattering." ALMA CARTIER. BlLL'S ADVENTURE Bill Adamson was not making very much progress at Columbia University. Bill, as his father called him, was about due for a vacation. His father had been very lenient with him as far as his success in school was con- cerned. It was Bill's Sophomore year, and, as he had been fooling away just about two- thirds of his time, his father was beginning to despair. He, under his father's orders, and like many other college chaps, was forced to leave college. As was expected, Bill was a clerk in dad's office. It was not at all pleasing to Bill, who had been used to "kicking" around just about as he pleased, and really never knew what work was. A half-year of office work elapsed and Bill claimed he was not going to work there any more. THE SASSAMON PAGE FIFTEEN His dad, knowing it was of no use to send him back to school until he realized how serious his work was, told "Billy" that he was planning to send him to Oklahoma for a few weeks. His dad owned a ranch, called a "pony" on account of size, and knew Bill would jump at the offer. It was really a fruitless offer, but he came to the conclusion that something had to be done. As the train passed on through the states, Bil1's one thought was, "Wait until those cowboys see me!" He really did think he was going to show them how to ride "bosses," rope "bulls," and lasoo every moving object. "Little Bend," shouted the conductor. "Ah," exclaimed Bill, "this is my Aburg !r n A team met him at the station Knot a taxi as he had expectedl, and after many bumfps, and exclamations about the "dead" West, Bill arrived at the little ranch. As he was tired, he retired early. The next morning a complete cowboy outfit was given him, and he was asked to join in the roundup of the cattle. Evi- dently Bill thought all one had to do was to whistle to them. Well, if it was left to Bill, nobody knows when the cattle would have been rounded up. The cowboys cer- tainly had a great time the first day. The next day found Bill trying to ride a "hoss." He also tried to rope every mov- ing object, but the "hoss" wouldn't stand still, neither would the other objects. Well, Bill could not even rope an object that was standing still. As a pistol shot, well, they say, "he couldn't hit the side of a barn door," and that fits Bill to perfection. Exactly a month of this found Bill ready to resume his duties at the University, to the great disappointment of the cowboys, who had had a "regular time." ROBERT ESTY. DILLY DALLY! "Dilly dally Dottie, How can you be so naughty?" The taunting voice of big brother Te-d came to her through the open window, one spring morning, as Dottie, in an absurdly large apron stood beating up- a feather cake for supper. "Dilly dally!" thought she, mournfully, to herself, "of all the names-that is the worst!" She sighed as she opened the oven door. "Brothers are brothers and always will be brothers, I suppose," mused she, and banged the oven door shut. "Dil1y dally Dot-tee! How can you b-" "Theodore Welder!" creid Dottie, run- ning to the window, "there, now I shan't hear you!" and she shut down the window with a bang. At that, Ted made such a grimace that Dottie laughed in spite of her- self and then proceeded to do the rest of her housework. As she turned from the window, she glanced at the clock. Twenty minutes past ten and half the work to do! She must fly so as to have it done by eleven- thirty, when she had a date with some girl friends for a spring picnic. She gave another look out of the window before she sped upstairs. Ted was very busy in the tool shed,-getting ished, thought Dottie, about him. Donny's cart fin- and then forgot Eleven-thirty found out of the back door, with a box under her arm, as she sallied forth for the picnic. Dorothy stepping Ted was still in the shed whistling as he painted the cart a glorious red and green, so Dottie knew she needn't lock the door. The spring air was balmy and pleasant. It was certainly good to be alive. So thought Dottie, as she turned into the street. Then she stopped abruptly. , "I know I've forgotten those olives!" ex- claimed she. She turned and went back for them. As she entered the house, the persistant ringing of the telephone took' her attention. "Oh dear!" she said, in a dis- mayed tone, as she took down the receiver. "Hell!--Ted?-O yes, just a minute." She went to the door and called--"Ted! you're wanted at the telephone." "Aw right!" and he strode up the steps and into the room. Dottie had just started out again when PAGE SIXTEEN THE SASSAMON she heard a very startled exclamation from the other room. "Oh, but Mr. Peters, I didn't do it-I wasn't there at that time-I-er," here Ted broke off and after a minute replaced the receiver and entered the kitchen, look- ing a little pale and puzzled. "What's the trouble?" asked his sister, a trifie anxiously. "Nothin', only fifty dollars has been stol- en by someone down to the store and Mr. Peters says I did it! and I've got to go down and see him now and prove I didn't." Dottie's mouth fell open. "Why you didn't--you wouldn't and you couldn't have done it!" she gasped. "I know it!" cried Ted, as he pulled his hat on and went out, slamming the door be- hind him. Dottie sat down very suddenly. She sat square on top of her lunch and didn't know it. The picnic was forgotten. It was almost five minutes by the clock when she suddenly remembered herself and jumped to her feet. "O my poor lunch!" cried she, "it's all changed into a big pat-a cake-but I don't think I really want to go to the picnic any- way." She glanced out doors. It didn't seem half so alluring so she finally settled down with a book. It was not very long afterwards that Ted came home again. He seemed a a bit de- jected. Dottie looked up inquiringly. "Did he-" she began. "No, he didn't!" said Ted, "Mr. Peters said that he left the fifty dollars in his top drawer, this morning, while he took the place of one of his clerks. The clerk stayed away longer than expected and when he finally was able to return to his office the money was gone. Of course, he blamed me because he left me in charge of the office until ten-thirty o'clock. I tried to tell him that I came home at ten min- utes past ten, which was before he took the clerk's place, but he said that someone saw me come back at twenty minutes past ten and, of course, he believes the other person first, because I've only been there a couple of weeks," Ted finished his explanation gloomily and fell silent. Dottie sat up very straight, "Pm going to call him up and prove to him that you were here at ten-twenty, because you were -why! that was when you called me Dilly dally!" "Don't!" cried Ted, "he wouldn't be- lieve you any way and besides, you mustn't get mixed up in this, too!" "O, say! I thought you were going to a picnic!" he cried. "So I was!" exclaimed Dot, just as though she had just remembered it. She jumped up and slipped on her hat and jack- et and started off, but this time there was no box under her arm. It didn't take her long to walk down town and into the B- store, where she found her way to the office. "Peters dont want to see no one," mum- bled the small boy who hovered around the office. "O, he'll see me all right!" said Dottie, as she stood in her tracks. "Please hun'y -it's very important!" The boy paused. "Whats your name?" asked he. "Dorothy Welder!" The lad disappeared, but soon reap- peared. "All right," he said, and Dottie hastened in. Inside of the little private office sat Mr. Peters. He was a tall man, with iron gray hair and humorous gray eyes. They were very stern now, however, or so they seemed to Dottie. "What may I do for you ?" he asked, as he nodded to a chair. Dottie seated her- self. "I'm coming straight to the point,' she announced. "You accused my brother of taking fifty dollars, at twenty minutes past ten and at that time he Was-he was--" "Was what?" inquired Mr. Peters. "He was-calling me names!" finished Dottie, her cheeks quite pink. In spite of himself Mr. Peters-almost smiled. "What names could the little rascal call you," he said. ' 7 THE SASSAMON PAGE SEVENTEEN "He called me Dilly dal1y!" said Dottie, and smiled. "Oh! he'll never call you that again !" ex- claimed Mr. Peters. He was smiling, too. "I assure you that he won't. But return- ing to my subject, are you sure it was twenty minutes past ten?" "Positive!" exclaimed Dottie. "I re- member looking at the clock!" Dottie was so anxious to assure him of the truth that Mr. Peters could restrain himself no longer. "I'll believe you if you'll believe me,', he said, his eyes twinkling a great deal, and then, with a flourish, he drew open the top drawer. There lay the fifty dollars, safe and sound. "I found I didn't leave it in the top draw- er after all," explained he, "but I had put it in my hat band, when I got it out of the bank, first thing this morning." With that he sat back in his chair and watched Miss Dorothy Welder, who sat wide-eyed and open-mouthed in astonishment. As he finished, she drew a breath of re- lief and rose to go, thanking him the while. "It's dinner time, so I might as well take you home," he said, casually looking at his watch. And so it was that Ted, looking very much surprised, saw Dottie actually riding homeswith Mr. Peters! "Well, this is a funny world!" thought he, and oddly enough what Mr. Peters had said came true, for Ted never called Dot, Dilly Dally any more. LUCJILE NICHOLS. THE SOLILOQUY OF A WASTE-BASKET "Before being thrown into discard let me tell you a little of my past life. If I should sound the least bit gloomy please forgive me, but when one has just heard that his doom is nigh, to be cheerful is perhaps not an easy matter. Did I not hear Miss Pratt tell the janitor, this morn- ing, that I had seen my best days and that she's going to ask the School Committee for a new waste-basket? Personally I think Miss Pratt could have been a little bit more considerate of my feelings by not giving vent to such an outburst when she knew right well that I was in the room, un- der her desk, where I've been for the last tell three years. However, I promised to you a little of my past life, did I not? Though so far I have only succeeded in telling you of my grievance. "Three years ago a prouder or more beautiful waste-basket than I had never been made. My creator robed me in a beautiful coat of pale green paint and then sent me to a nearby school, where I was given to the teacher, Miss Pratt. "How well I remember the ovation that was given me! Taking me ln her hands, Miss Pratt held me up in front of the class and commenced, 'Before you I am holding a beautiful new waste-basket, it being school property, I hope you will all treat it as such. I shall keep it under my desk, and from. now I wish to see a tidy room with no waste paper lying around, for this basket is a receptacle for all waste materi- al, and, I think, an essential to civic pride! "After that speech you can imagine my disgust when a big wad of gum was sent down my insides, followed by another and another, 'till I thought everyone in the room must have been chewing gum, any- way, I was getting pretty 'stuck-up.' I can tell you that I had a hard time convinc- ing myself that my purpose in life is rub- bish, and that I was made to be useful, as well as ornamental. "Many may think that my life is always sad, but that is not so. For instance, the eighteenth amendment to the Constitution may affect some people, but not me,-no matter what happens, I am always full. 'AI have often been witness to personal matters, some quite thrilling, like love- notes, for instance. As a friend I'll advise you always to tear your notes up into very small pieces, because some people like puz- zles and might use your note for one, if they had the chance. However, I warn you never to tear notes when the teacher is in the room, because the tearing of paper al- ways distracts a teacher's attention from her work, and worse still, makes her suspi- cious of the truth. PAGE EIGHTEEN THE SASSAMON "Goodness! gracious! Miss Pratt has just thrown a bouquet of flowers on me, which, I think, must be a sure sign that my days are numbered. As I was not made in a 'box' factory, let me not die a 'chatter- box,' but though being made in a 'waste- basket' factory, let me not waste my time in idle soliloquy. I will remain a waste- basket 'till I turn to ashes in the city dump." EDITH NORDSTROM. THE WRECK OF THE "HOPEWE.LL" As the tramp freighter "Hopewell" docked at the wharf, at San Francisco, Captain Mayo breathed a sigh of relief. It had been a hard voyage and he was glad it was over. He stood on the bridge with the first mate and the harbor pilot while the "Hope- well" was docked. He was a young man, only a few years out of a nautical school, and the responsibility had weighed heavily on his mind. The "Hopewell" was a freak steamer. She was very old and her engines were in bad condition. Twice on the voyage they had been delayed to fix some trifling thing which, if properly repaired, should give no trouble at all. The "Hopewell" was owned by Mr. Brown, a stingy man, who was unwilling to part from a cent unless it was absolutely necessary. The skipper turned to the chief mate and said, "By George! If I don't get some new boilers put into this floating wreck, I'll quit and tell Mr. Brown to go to Blazes!" The mate, with a look of disgust on his face, replied, "It sure is terrible the way things are going. If the old man don't fix up the old tub before next voyage, some- thing is going to happen. Why! the en- gine room signals are all shot to pieces and the lights and other signals are in terrible condition!" The captain said, "When I go up to make my report, I want you to go with me, and we'll see if we can persuade him to make some repairs." A few hours later they were ushered into the presence of Mr. Brown, who, after telling them to sit down, said, "Well, it took you long enough to make the trip. You are two weeks late." Captain Mayo replied, "We were delayed for two weeks off the coast of Chile, fixing the engines." Mr. Brown replied, "Now I suppose you have a whole list of things which need re- pairs. I'll tell you this right now, if you expect me to make that ship into a second 'Majestic,' you have got another think com- ing." "But," said the first mate, "if you don't fix the boilers, she's liable to blow up and the propeller shaft is-" Here Mr. Brown interrupted him by say- ing, "Get out and shut up or I'll blow you up. You are going to start for Australia two weeks from today witha miscellaneous cargo, and no repairs are to be made be- fore leaving, and I'm going with you. I need a voyage for my health." The two men left the office and returned to the ship. When they got back, the mate said, "I'm through. I'll get my junk and clear out and get a new berth. The old man didn't give us a chance to say any- thing. So he's going on the next voyage. I hope the old wreck blows up under,him " The Captain said, "I think I'1l stick it out for another voyage, because if he has one trip on her, I think he'll be willing to Hx it up. You had better stick and see the fun when anything happens to the en- gines in mid-ocean." "By George, I think I'll stick," said the chief mate, "and I'll also see that the old tub acts her worst when he is on her." Two weeks later the 'fHopewell" left Frisco harbor and carried with her her owner, Mr. Brown, and his wife. Mr. Brown stayed on deck with the officers the first day and enjoyed the air, but during the night a storm came up, and by morning he was feeling very sick. He regained his health too soon to suit the officers for he was always in the way, finding fault with the way things were run on the ship. THE SASSAMON PAGE NINETEEN At one time he was being too free with his orders and Captain Mayo, unable to constrain his Wrath, said to him, "I am in command of this ship and I'1l do as I please, I won't take any orders from any landlub- ber who has never been on salt water be- fore. You may be owner of this ship, but while she's running between ports under my command, I will do as I think best." While off the coast of Japan, they were struck by another storm. Captain Mayo was on watch at the time, and when he saw the storm coming, he ordered all hands on deck to prepare for the storm. A few minutes later the strong wind struck and the ship rolled over on her star- board side until it seemed that she must tip over, but in a moment or two she came back on an even keel. It was pitch dark, so the captain ordered the men to get out the search-light and flash it in front of the ship. When they tried to turn it on, they found that something was wrong with the connections. While they were trying to fix it, Mr. Brown came rush- ing up to find whether they were going to be drowned or what was going to hap- pen. The skipper returned to the bridge, with the terrified Mr. Brown at his heels. No sooner had he reached the bridge than the lookout up "forward" shouted, "Land ho! Breakers directly ahead on both bows!" Captain Mayo reached for the rope which connected with the engine room signal and pulled it. As the second pull something broke, so he couldn't finish the signal. He had intended to ring three, which was the signal for reverse, but as it had brok- en, he had given accidently the signal for full speed ahead. The obliging engineer heard the two bells and accordingly started full speed ahead, not knowing that anything was the matter. He was too obliging and put on so much power that the propeller shaft broke, leaving the ship at the mercy of the wind and waves. Captain Mayo turned to Mr. Brown and said, "That's what comes from having rot- ten signals and a cracked propeller shaft." The terrified owner of the ship said, "I know! It's all my fault, but what can we do? Can't you drop an anchor?" Captain Mayo replied, grimly, "I or- dered a new anchor chain before we left, because the old one was broken, but you cancelled the order." The owner then said, in a tone of dis. tress, "Well, for Heaven's sake please do something! Send up- some distress sig- nals." "You forget, Mr. Brown," said the cap- tain, "that you never allowed your ships to carry them, because you thought it wasn't necessary. There is only one thing to do and that is to wait till she strikes, launch the life boats, and make an attempt to land." During all this conversation the doomed ship was drifting towards the treacherous rocks that lay in her path. Mr. Brown, who had become calm in the face of death, said, "I realize now that I have made a big mistake. I have sent you out on voyages before at great risk to your lives and now I am to pay the pen- alty. Perhaps it is too late, but, if by any chance the Almighty spares my life, I'll try to make up for what I have done." As he finished speaking, the vessel struck with a terrific crash and almost immediate- ly began to list over on her side. One of the engineers came rushing up to report that a big hole had been smashed in her side and she would fioat only a few minutes. The ship had only four boats and one of these capsized while being lowered, so the remaining three were very crowded. A few minutes after these three left the ship. she sank. The three boats headed for shore and while going through the breakers, two of these were tipped over. The remaining boat reached shore safely and the occu- pants, Captain Mayo, the first mate, assist- ant engineer, four firemen, four sailors and Mr. and Mrs. Brown, got down on their knees and gave thanks to the Lord, for guiding them safely to land. PAGE TWENTY THE SASSAMON No trace was found of the occupants of the other two boats, so they were given up as lost. After many hardships the survivors of the wreck reached a large city, from which they proceeded to San Francisco. A few days after their arrival there, Mr. Brown summoned Captain Mayo and the first mate to his office. After they were seated, Mr. Brown said to the first mate, "I have just ordered a new ship to be built, and if you can get captain's papers, I will put you in command of it." Then turning to Mayo he said, "I was wondering if you would be willing to give up the sea and come into the business as port captain. You are too brilliant a man to spend all your life at sea." The two young men were amazed at the generosity of their employer, and when they regained their voices, they accepted the kind offers. They left the office in a daze, and when they got outside, Mayo turned to the mate and said, "Now are you glad you stuck by the ship ?" . The mate was too dazed to reply. STERLING MILLS.

" X BOYS' BASKETBALL SEASON Although not a successful season in win- ning games, it has been successful in that the boys who will make up the team next year will have had enough experience to enable them to get a flying start. Some ex- cellent material remains for the season of '24:--A. Dumas, T. Dumas, Butters, Mor- gan, Potter, Thompson, Mordis, Kelly, Hes- lin, Shea, Muskat, Cowee, and many others. A first-class varsity team should develop. The Natick boys, as you know, lost all four games at Aggie, but what was learned in those games was demonstrated during the remainder of the season,-Maynard, Winchester, Wellesley. Framingham won two games, by close scores. I look to see the Natick squad drub F. H. S. next year if material means anything. The game at Natick was a hard-fought one and F. H. S. won in a last-ditch battle. The game at the Casino was a fast game throughout and the score was close. R. E. E. Friday, Mr. Archibald took four Varsity basketball players to Tufts, where they saw real basketball. Teams from all over the state were represented: Fitchburg was the lucky one this year. I guess Morgan learned some fine points. The next thing to consider in sports is baseball. The graduation of last June left XJ. v-- but a few to begin with this year. There is a good bunch of fellows said to be ready to report for various positions, and it is hoped a strong team can be materialized. The former members are Esty, Dumas, Richard- son, Grady, Thompson, Wilson, Kreutz- kampf. The new members ready to report are T. Dumas, Kunz, Dean. A few others have signified their intentions of coming out for a position. The team is a member of the Midland League, of which it was champion last year, and stands a good chance this season. GIRLS' BASKETBALL The girls completed their basketball schedule, Tuesday, March 20, playing a game with Melrose, at Melrose. Although not as successful as in other years, fdue to lack of materialb, they played good, clean, exciting games and showed good sportsman- ship. We shall all regret the absence of Miss Goldrick, on next year's team. She de- fended her position as guard perfectly. She was an excellent captain, popular with all her team mates, and showed some of the best playing in all the games. It was due to the splendid work of Miss Goldricks and Miss Lord that the opponents' scores were kept down.
