as erudite teachers who are capable not only

Council sponsors the OCD films and has made
war preparations through air raid drills. This
group, composed of the Misses Staley, Kern,
and Neumann, the Mesdames Hall Carter and
Campbell, and Messrs. Griggs and Davis, is
intensely interested in post-war reconstruction
and salvage drives. As an advisory board to
the Student War Council, they provide the
impetus needed to win the war. p

JUNIURS IN ACTION
With so many new faces in their midst in Septem-
ber, the juniors had a gala welcoming party for every-
one. They gorged themselves on hamburgers and cokes
before a glowing fire in the Gwendolyn Armour room,
Into a huddle they went for plans to tackle their
assembly program. They emerged with "Romance in
Tune with the Times," which was a great success. Mrs.
Whitaker stole the show!
Felt purses and hand-painted coasters were their
wares at the Bazaar. Pocketing thefr money, they spon-
sored a "Rec" dance for the school. After sweeping the
stag line off their feet, the juniors forgot them at Mrs. Rosemary Hvndry
"Whit's" party at Lake Bluff. P"""f"f"'f
Exams heralded the new year, but the class recov-
ered at their Valentine party. Mr. Davis, new adviser,
joined in the fun, leading the conga line.
With sorrow the juniors bid grads adieu at a break-
fast in the spring.

SUPHUMDRES SHO0T THE MARK
Following the tradition established by them as
"green freshies" last year, the sophomores threw them-
selves, one and all, into the victory plans. Many of
their members actively participated in work of the War
Committee, in the bond drive, and in the book campaign.
They put their ingenuity to task in fashioning clever
felt animal pins for the Bazaar. At the Darcy concert
they dressed in formals to sell hot cider. Two bake
sales, with goodies to tempt the palate, netted them a
tidy sum, too. '
One of the gayest functions of the year was the
sophomore party in the Gwendolyn Armour room of the
"Dem" school. Because of the snappy weather out-of-
doors, a crackling fire was built in the fireplace. Around
it the girls sang, played games, and ATE!
Perhaps the greatest thrill of the year for the class
was their winning of the volleyball tournament.

THE PATRIUTIG SPIRIT
FRESHMEN JUIN THE BANKS
With entrance tests and orientation over, the vivacious
freshmen lasses were ready and eager for some lighter
diversions. A bit of genuine fun was the Big-Little Sis-
ter party at the fireplace, with the most ravenous appe-
tites filled to satiety.
Once the excitement of elections was past, class of-
ficers swung into planning the year's activities.
In harmony with the Yuletide spirit, a Christmas
party was given at the dorm, the holiday theme being
carried out in decorations and refreshments. Each girl
contributed toward securing a basket of food for a
A freshman-sophomore party in February convinced
the two classes that closer social relationships should ex-
ist between them.
Having made a place for themselves at National, the
freshmen have three years to look forward to, in which
they hope ultimately to bequeath a record worthy of
emulation by future "freshies."

GDLLEGE GUUNGIL AGTS UPUN PROBLEMS
Lvff to Right: M. Bixbyg V. Rennickeg M. Miller, T. Lehmann.
Our College Council intelligently
met issues that were placed before them.
They faced war in relationship to Na-
tional by starting the War Council and
by suggesting the reduction of class
dances to two all-school proms. The lat-
ter proposal was readily accepted by the
student body. College Council complied
with the requests of National girls by
permitting the clubs to meet only when
members found a meeting necessary.
Other recommendations resulted in dis-
continuing exams for February gradu-
ates and calling a special assembly for
announcement of scholarship awards.
Martha Bixby, as president of the
Council and chairman of the Honor Com-
mission, stimulated the interest of the
Council. Vice-president, Virginia Ren-
nicke, was Activity chairman and also
sponsored the presentation of Christmas
gifts to children at Hull House. Our
secretary, Marilyn Miller, acted as chair-
man of the Citizenship Committee. Theo
Lehman, treasurer, was chairman of the
Red Cross drive and the Points and Re-
vision Committee. Indeed, College Coun-
cil deserves praise for its worthy contri-
butions to Nat'onal.
YWUA ENLISTS SERVICE
With theTr keynote this year, service,
Y.W.C.A. strove toward an altruistic philos-
ophy of life.
An all-school tea and a Big-Little Sister
party elicited enthusiasm for joining Y.W. at
their solemn, impressive recognition service.
A recreation night for service-men, book
reviews by Mrs. Dawson, and a round table
among three eminent religious leaders com-
prised the year's program.
AGE Prepares Sludenls
To inspire self-realization in future
teachers and the democratic way of education
as a guide in the profession are the aims en-
couraged by the Association for Childhood
A talk on the utilization of waste ma-
terials, book reviews, a Red Cross knitting
bee, and a mock interview of two seniors by
the Highland Park superintendent of schools
were paramount offerings. Culmination of the
year was a senior luncheon given by the Chi-
Rivals Professional Gompanies
The D.A.'s are on the loose, those eccen-
tric figures of the Dramatic Club! Under deft
leadership, they presented a children's play,
"Peter and Lotte," accomplished with finesse
of previous seasons.
Again they tripped to the Panther Room
to quell rumblings in the pits of their skele-
tons. It seems there were some flyers from
Europe-anyway, it WAS their patriotic duty!

Vigilance was their slogan as they
checked on late permissions, mid-weeks, week-
end jaunts, tardinesses, and campuses. Thank-
less though their task might be, the members
of the Dormitory Board were ever on the job
to see that justice was administered to all cul-
prits. Stern countenances wreathed in smiles,
trials waived for a respite, the genial board
played hostesses to the faculty and students
at a Christmas buffet.
An exciting party in the good old tradi-
tion celebrated All Hallow's Eve.
Prospective students of National were
warmly welcomed and feted at a tea in the

"Ring oul, oh voices, ioyfuIIy!"
It was a heavy blow to the choir when
Miss Westervelt fell on the ice and broke her
hip. This misfortune proved, however, to be
an incentive towards polished performances
under the direction of Miss Risler. In Febru-
ary the "live o'clock, Monday" practices be-
gan and later, in preparation for the Festival,
those at four on Thursdays.
Much attention was focused this year on
reviving a few of last year's selections and
studying choral masterpieces of some of the
world's greatest composers.
Long before Baccalaureate and Com-
mencement the choir was at work, rehearsing
to lend its dignified yet bright atmosphere to
these memorable occasions.
GRADS Gomhine Home with School Life
Monthly the members of Graduate Club
assembled in the Alumnae Room for informal
discussions and social hours.
Club membership consisted of graduates
of numerous colleges from all sections of the
country. Represented were varied back-
grounds. Somel of the club's personnel have
families in the making, which gives them
Hrst-hand experience and an unusual link be-
tween their chosen vocation and their homes.
Topics for consideration were widespread,
due to the different environments. One of the
highlights of the year was a dinner at the
Cordon Club in February, arranged through
the courtesy of President Edna Dean Baker.
TRAVEL GLUB learns
customs and food.
INTERNATIONAL CLUB exchanges
ideas ot foreign-born
and American students.
With an intent toward encouraging friendly rela-
tions between the inter-racial groups which characterize
our American "melting pot," Travel Club enthusiasts
made a round of fascinating visits to the Dragon Festi-
val, Old Heidelberg, Kungsholm, and Ricardo's. All
agreed that by the end of the year they were connois-
seurs of good food. Trudy Selz and President Benes'
niece, Mrs. Vlcek, were interesting guest-speakers.
International Club has strengthened the bond be-
tween Exchange students and National girls intercul-
turally minded. In honor of Elina Crottogini, members
entertained everyone at the dorm in the South American
way. Spirited singing and racy music tingled in the
blood of all. As a climax to the year's activities, the
club enjoyed festivities at Chicago's International House.
'Um at wp-.ut gm. "
In a dimly lit, cold cubbyhole, Chaff,
National's gossip preacher and news-
monger, takes form. Through the muf-
Hed click of typewriters, Forstall, the
editor, lets out a wild cry for the
make-up sheet: "Who has it? And
where is that lead story? Don't tell me
we haven't a lead story?"-'til the
tension is eased by the sudden apropos
appearance of said story in the copy
box. So runs every other Thursday
evening, with Miss Kern and Mrs.
Luft first semester, Mrs. Clancey sec-
ond, drifting in and out to offer their
opinions and aid.
Chaff's brainchild of the year, its
pride and joy, was the sponsoring of
a semi-formal dance held at the Edge-
water Beach Hotel. 'Midst the swish-
ing of skirts, Nationalites acted as
hostesses to midshipmen from Abbott
and Tower Halls. In spite of dampish
weather, all had a super time.

This year the purpose of the Athletic Association
was to provide a time, a place, and a Worthwhile activity
for any and all students interested in athletics, as well as
to stimulate a desire to participate in those who had not
possessed it before. A new scoring basis for classes and
for individuals was initiated. With a lusty cheer for each
class, the season commenced.
They've got form!

Sherman does the family marketing.
A highlight of the opening game be-
tween the freshmen and sophomores
was the presence of a "little woman
who wasn't there." Miss Gibson, soph-
omore class sponsor, who could not
attend the game, sent a dummy in her
place, and be what it might, the
dummy brought luck, for the sophs
won! The next game saw the "jolly
juniors" defeat the "Grand Old Sen-
iors," thus a play-off ensued, with the
sophomores as victors.
Basketball then took the spotlight.
This sport really did loosen up creaky
limbs, also increasing interest in the
battle for the cup. Both the juniors
and seniors won their First two games,
becoming contestants in the deciding
game. It was certainly a test of agility
Swing highg swing low.
Was it ever warm enough for this??
Seniors, with a fast-moving, sharp-
shooting forward trio, gained a good
lead in the first quarter, were closely
trailed in the second, but came through
in the third and fourth to win. A
round of congratulations followed, an-
other sport was ushered out.
"Play Night," sponsored by the As-
sociation and International Club, was
thoroughly enjoyed. Folk dancing,
active and quiet games, and the inevi-
table refreshments provided an eve-
ning of good old-fashioned fun.
With the advent of Mother Spring,
came tennis and baseball. Girls with
wind-blown hair and rolled-up shirt
sleeves were seen "slugging it out"
on the baseball diamond, while others
with. shorts and gorgeous tans were
serving fast balls on th.e tennis court.
Cheers for class and individual win-
ners closed the season as it had begun.

All of the festivals brought us closer to
the events which they celebrated. Incarna-

Spring, the pageantry of each caught the
traditional spirit. Truly they were magic
casements permitting us, at least for the
moment, to leave the troubled world.

en to marching feet of American boys
who, on Thanksgiving Day, tramped
on foreign shores. Some were fortu-
nate, receiving shipments of food to
observe the occasion. Others found
courage in memories of Thanksgiving
festivities during peaceful years.

A thoroughly responsive audience
captured the festive atmosphere of the
evening and were swinging and sway-
ing, laughing and exclaiming, as if
just a part of the merry-making.
National's night of capers and en-
tertainment was similar to. a Mardi
Gras celebration. But because it was
a product of sense impressions of every
girl, which arose through listening to
music, the Festival was not stereo-
typed. Ideas developed concretely into
dances, characterization, and mimicry,
portraying street life and fantasy at
their full culmination in beauty, fun,
The opening street scene familiar-
ized us with the ballyhoo of peanut

With anticipation, Festival-goers
waited for the spectacular display of

thing to which we could lend our tal-

or pin our faith.
We began to realize that these ac-

of high spirits and sane minds while
chaos reigned about us. From the
events of 1943, we learned the value
of morale building in civilian as well
as in army life. We were glad for the

this year sported "new-two-seasons-ago" dance
dresses, giving a lift to their spirits instead by
means of war-stamp corsages or bright accessories.
Even standing on street corners in sub-zero
weather, in hopes of snagging a superannuated
taxi, failed to daunt party-goers. Of course the
spring prom was the one that caused our romantic

The American Red Cross
With the Colors-Everywhere
WOUNDED SAILOR on a storm-tossed destroyer on the
North Atlantic is given a transfusion of life-saving plasma
-processed from blood collected by the Red Cross from volun-
teer donors. '
A soldieris mother is desperately ill and calling for her son,
stationed on the other side of the continent-the Red Cross helps
him obtain a furlough and speeds him to his mother's bedside.
A marine, wounded in action and discharged as physically
unht for duty, has to learn a new trade-the Red Cross helps
arrange it and Hnds him a job.
A family longs for word from an only son, a prisoner of war
in a foreign land-the Red Cross brings them a message from
him through its international communications network.
Everywhere, throughout the world, wherever American
hghting men are on duty, the Red Cross is at their side. With
Combat units on the battle fronts, at outposts in the seven seas,
in camps and stations at home, Red Cross men and women are
serving with the colors.
Chapters and branches of the Red Cross in every city, village
and hamlet in the United States serve on the home front, making
Comfort items for the men in service and aiding their families
when in distress. Red Cross workers serve in hospitals to help
speed the convalescence of wounded men.
Two and a quarter million Americans are volunteer workers
of the Red Cross, backed by 28 million men, women and children
whose dollars make its work possible. It is your Red Cross-your
dollars and good wishes keep it on the job.
