Thus, in 1891, the Spirit instigated in them a definite purpose, so that a high school was established. Its beginning was humble, but the Spirits' untiring efforts brought about marked improvement. By her tact and wisdom the one course developed to two and finally to three. ln addition to having a greater variety of studies, the high school course now attained a length of four years. ln I923 this good friend artfully called the attention of the learned fathers to the need for a new school building in which to carry on higher education. ' This Spirit has been a faithful aide in the past history of our historic home. May her wisdom guide us in the future..

FREDERICK MARTIN ' LESTER HAWK U41 Nazareth High School I itetter tn the Qllass of '99 BALBOA HEIGHTS, Panama Canal Zone February 22, 1926 EAR SCI-IOOLIVIATES:-Itvjust dawned on me that it is more than a quarter of a century ago since WE graduated from Nazareth I-ligh, and I thought I'd better write and let you know that you are getting old. You might deny it, but you would have some trouble hiding your gray hair, bald heads, and fotherl spectacles. Since then twenty-six other classes have come out, and the twenty-seventh is on its way, some of whom, for all I know, may be the offspring of the ninety-niners. If it weren't for the children, and Professor Huth, I might tell the world now who put that rare specimen into Gernet's flower press: fumigated mice in the hot air furnace: manicured Guidy Schmidt's pet tom cat: rubbed dried nettle into people's woolensg pinned unmentionables on the hammer of the old school bell, and how the boobies passed impossible IOO per cent. exams, and other things. Isn't it awful that your memory must carry such things around for years and years, not daring to spill them lest they disturb the social standing of a few respected and respectful citi- zens who were young in 1899. Speaking of mind, memory, and children, has it ever occurred to you that our high school education didn't help our young ones a bit? I always thought that U51 Helen and I Ccombinedl had a fairly good education and that there was every reason to believe that our offspring would be reasonably intelligent beings. To my surprise when the lirst-born arrived, he not only knew absolutely nothing, but he could neither walk nor talk, and his face was fire red when he first laid eyes on me,-and the second was like unto him. In this respect they were more helpless than a common barnyard animal. Adam and Eve seem to have been the only ones who did not have to go through this schooling process. I have no idea how much they knew when they were born. They didn't seem to know what was good for them, but wouldn't it be a fine thing if we could transmit our store of accumulated knowledge and wisdom to our children in birth, and they, in turn, after adding to it for twenty years or so, pass it on to the next generation, and so on ad injiniium. Think of the million empty school houses, useless books, and idle teachers! Josh Billings said that the average man has a mind into which you must drive a thought with a sledge hammer, and out of which you can only get an intelligible expression with a cork screw. Cl-le said "man"-not women and childrenj With the aid of an old Pre-Pro. corkscrew I have succeeded in extracting the following tremendous truth: That the 'Che Comet 1916 Great Creator and Preserver in His infinite wisdom, has reserved some things entirely to Himself, and while it appears that we are able to do a few things by our own efforts, so far as the beginning and the. ending of life are concerned, we are absolutely helpless and dependent on Him. We apparently arrive with an empty brain, and no matter how much we put into it during life, when the end comes our entire collection of knowledge passes out like the flame of a candle before a puff of wind. Yet, there is nothing new under the sun, for what bright ideas are developed today, were common knowledge and forgotten ten thousand years ago. High School may be too early to begin to talk about love, marriage, a home, and children, but certainly some time between that age and twenty somebody ought to get in a word of advice to the boys and girls to the effect that some time between twenty and thirty is the proper time to select a vocation, a life- partner, and a home. Youth is the time to revel in the light and beauty: the sweetness and harmony of this universe, and with bodies brimful of sensations, appetites, and powers, like a harp of a thousand strings that send forth rich entrancing melodies, there are almost infinite possibilitiesof enjoyment for man and maid if properly attuned to the essential conditions of life. Youth likes to gaze into the heavens at night thick with stars, glorious with the moon walking in her brightnessg youth likes to stand by the sea and let the breeze wet with brine fan its brow, and watch the breakers curl and tumble in upon the shoreg likes to listen to the song of the birds on a summer morn, or the passionate trills of the nightingale sweet singing to his mate: likes to feel the thrill of a glance from 'love-lit eyes that from the fringed lid speak what the lips dare not utter, and when hand clasps hand and each feels the pure chords of the heart vibrate to love's holy melody, let the one ask the question andthe other say uyes," for there will then be "Two souls with but a single thought: two hearts that beat as one." There seems to be a fallacious idea that when young people leave school they must go "Out into the world to make a living." My advice is "Stay where you are and make a home." If the spirit of adventure and the desire to see the world overcome you, before you start be sure to provide yourselves with round- trip tickets so that at the end of your journey you will find yourselves back in the most beautiful spot on earth, 'mid the scenes of your childhood and the surroundings of home, where the heart turns to the dwelling place. which has been hallowed by the memory of a mother+a place that has rung with the laughter of childhood and echoed the sobs over departed loved ones, embosomed among the hills, sheltered by the clinging honeysuckles, and shaded by blossoming apple trees-be it ever so humble there is no place like home.

I-The scene is laid in the Main Room of the old High School Building on the fifth of September in the year I922. As the curtain rises, a group of bashful and frightened boys and girls numbering fifty-one enter, with their eyes popping, taking in with a single glance, the mass of faces of upper classmen. Although the sun is shining, there is an uncanny glow cast over the room by the extreme greenness of the freshmen. Later in the day the protests of the freshmen boys are heard, but are drowned by the yells of delight of upper classmen, who seem to take great' pleasure in hazing the poor children. However, they didn't succeed in hazing all-several escaped untouched. SCENE II A This scene is laid in the Civics Room in the old I-Iigh School Building one afternoon in November, when the class was organized. In December, a class meeting was held there, and it was decided that the class have a sleigh-riding party. In spite of the efforts of the upper classmen to the contrary, we went. Ye had a delightful time-it is a pleasant incident in the memories of the class o '26. r SCENE III The scene is laid in the Main Room of the old I-Iigh School Building during a Literary Society meeting in the spring. The class president presents to the school a beautiful picture, called "The Pond Lilies." This picture is a fine addition to the numerous ones placed by other classes on the walls of the new building. A ACT II SCENE I The scene is laid in the old I-Iigh School Building, September 4, 1923. This time we appear as intellectual sophomores. This year it is our chance to aid ln the hazing of the freshmen which we execute in a very elevated manner. U31 9 Nazareth Bigh School SCENE II Whitheld Gymnasium is now revealed on the evening of October 26, I923. The atmosphere is filled with witchery and mystery. The "gym" is appro- priately decorated for this occasion in orange and black. The evening was spent in dancing and playing l-lallowe'en games. All leave at a late hour, regretting the end of this delightful affair. SCENE III This scene is laid in the new High School Building, October 29, 1923. All students, with their arms filled with books, are wandering about the halls and wondering where they are to go. All act as if they were freshmen again. Soon, due to instructions from the teachers, we find our new home rooms and we soon feel "at home." ACT III SCENE I We are back again at Nazareth I-Iigh, beginning our Junior year, September 9, l924. Thirty-two juniors returned to resume their studies. Very much interest in athletics, music and other school activities was taken by the class. The class was well represented on the debating team, contributing four members. SCENE II The scene is laid in Room 9, at the beginning of January, l925. The president of the class is seen handing out our class rings and pins, which are eagerly received by us. The rings and pins have the seal of the High School engraved on them. SCENE III' ' As the curtain rises a very beautiful scene is revealed, on March 25, I925. Spring is in the air. The gymnasium is very prettily decorated in lattice-work of yellow and white crepe paper. Palms are scattered over the room, which is filled with members of the faculty and their wives, juniors and seniors. The orchestra strikes up and the dancing begins. The evening is spent in dancing and card-playing. Delicious refreshments are served to the revelers. The party ends with a delightful waltz. Every one regrets its close. 'Che Comet 1926 ACT IV SCENE I The scene has been shifted to the auditorium of the I-Iigh School Building, September 8, l925. Twenty-two young men and women have returned this year as dignified seniors to complete their studies. This year many of our members are found on the debating team, athletic teams, and numerous other school staffs. SCENE II On the night of October 30, l925, our class gives a I'Iallowe'en party, to which the faculty is invited and each senior brings a post-graduate or a lower classman. Dancing and I-IalIowe'en games are the means of entertainment. I-IaIIowe'en refreshments are served in cafeteria style, followed by more dancing. The party breaks up at I2 o'cIock. ' SCENE III V The scene is a repetition of Act III, Scene III, only this time we are being entertained instead of entertaining. The "gym" is very tastefully decorated. Plants are numerous as are card tables. The orchestra plays and the fun begins. The seniors enjoy themselves very much and compliment the Junior Class on their ability to act as very capable hosts and hostesses. SCENE IV This scene finds us on our trip to Washington, D. C. This is a fitting climax to our busy Senior year. The sights of the national capital will be one of the fondest recollections of our class. SCENE V I Time: June 25, 1926. Black-robed seniors are handed a roll of parchment tied with cardinal and grey ribbons which they take with one hand while with the other theyvchange the tassel of their caps to symbolize their graduation. The curtain falls. Exit l926. 20 X Nazareth High School WILSON BQERSTLER ISABELLA BONSTEIN GERALDINE CHILDRESS "Moms" "Coon Looxm' " Wilson doesn't realize it, but we think his blue eyes would take wonderfully on the silver-sheet. It seems he'd rather experiment in "lab" or tease the girls than make use of his optical assets. However, in spite of his teasing, we must admit he's "there" on the basketball floor and is a good handy-man at social affairs. Wilson adores economics: in spite of this fact, we have an inkling that Mr. Schwartz will be relieved when he is no longer addressed in such bloomin' English. Although Wil- son is rather shy among the girls. "Lizzie" fdon't become excited-she's made of tinj is a clinging friend.

"Izzy's" the queen of bobbed hair dancers, in demand as a teacher and partner. Her agility on the floor is nothin' compared to that in the "gym" during a game. She is a uhuggin' " guard and a Hsneakin' " forward. She is a great admirer of the modern knight in his auto. She studied economics with us, but the course didn't seem to do much good. Think of all that perfectly good money paid for carfares for those week-end visits!

She's what you would term the type of girl who wouldn't think of questioning the obey in that "I will" affair. HONORS: Glee Club 123. Let us introduce to you our mathe- matical shark and Charleston fiend. When ,skirts and hair were shorn she wanted to follow suit, but instead she trumpecl-hence the "Jimmie," "Jimmie" expects to go to Cedar Crest and we warn the Muhlenberg men: "She comes, she goes, she has conquered." English professors say climaxes should appear at the finish, but "Jimmie" is too many climaxes to be analyzed.

"Milly" is a happy-go-lucky lassie. but when she's interested in something she'll push till she knocks it over. This last year she has blossomed into a basketball whiz. The size of her opponent doesn't phase her at all. She jumps into the fight with "Wim, wigor and witality." She puts pep into a crowd and when she's around, conversation doesn't lag, for her tongue begins to wag.

But don't put too much blame on this pretty classmate of ours-she simply can't make those blue eyes behave. "Vi" shines. with our gang. Mr. Schwartz can't refute her arguments-by this we mean her vocal speed is too great for any one to cope with. "Vi" has a heavy correspondence and her admirers seem to have good taste as to what milacly likes. We don't blame you, boys. I nrVi.s,, HoNoRs: Glee Club C23 C435 Class Play C43.

She tells us she wants to be wise and an old maid, but when asked about our opinion of this we can only say that "Woman is at once the delight and terror of man." She was very essential to this book, as she is in most things she attempts-fudge making no exception.

'Che Comet 1926 MARY WUNDERLY "WONDER" "HA HA" "Now, you listen here," says Mary, and every one sits up and takes notice, because we know it'll be worth while or a real funny joke. Her ha! ha! is the most contagious in the Main Room and, in fact, at times permeates the entire building. Sl'1e's a good loyal senior and has a smile for every one. but who doesn't like to be disturbed in Mathematics class! Mary's capacity for cakes and tan- gerines made her desk the center of attraction during the last period in the afternoon. We've tried to persuade her to "bob" her hair, but she staunchly sticks to her guns. HONORS: Glee Club 125 443. xl' . 1571 - , i H .' ,LLQQ - ,Q , ,---f WITT HUTCHINSON, B. S. Carlisle, Pa. HOMER W.

Tnizonosm KNAUSS, HENRY SCHLEGEL, SAMUEL SHIMER. l301 1 Nazareth High School iKesum'e uf "little Siuutneps tu the Zhnmes nf the Great" Written by Mcsdamcs Y and Z and alone into a book by the Haycrafters at their loft which is in Nazareth, Pa., in the year 1986 A. D. CWith apologies to Elbert Hubbard, The following contains a brief resume of the eight books of journeys reviewing the lives of the famous class of '26: BOOK I little jiluurneps to the teenies of QBreat Business jlaen ann llbumen EVELYN RUNDLE Madame Rundle-ze very petite and charmante proprietress of the world-known ucottonsworth Parisian Dress Shoppe." Of the class of '26, Madame Rundle has risen high in the confidence of the "400" regarding the latest in feminine apparel. Her crea- tions vie with those of Salome and Cleopatra. JOSEPHINE. KIEFER Miss Kiefer, most unrecognizable of the famous class, is well known in the canine world. Her magnetic personality draws dogs from Poland to Australia. Her home for friendless dogs is a land- mark in the advancement of the cause of kindness to animals. Her motto is a very adaptable one-"Want a friend? Love a dog." E311 MILDRED STROUSE Madamoiselle Mille compounded the famous uni- versally known Pumpkin Beauty lotions. Members of the classes which followed '26 carried away the honors in the Northampton County Beauty Pageants due to the help of Mademoiselle Mille. Great honor is due her. o BOOK I1 . little-Elnurneps tn the ieumes nf QEreat laters ARLEYNE I-IEIMS When the "Prince of Whales" visited the Royale Theatre known for its marvelous music, he was so impressed with this little lady's affection for children, which had caused her to combine and support twelve orphan asylums, he presented her with a bouquet of ore-kids to show his deep feelings in the affair. u JACOB KNECHT Of the famous class, none is better known to the fair sex than Count Knechtus, patent-haired, flowery- tongued diplomat, well-known in the courts of Spain, Italy, and Iceland. l-lis affairs rival those of King Henry VIII. D 'Che Comet 1926 LESTER EVERETT Father Everett, gray-haired and solemn, is known to the business world for his calm demeanor and pious life. His aid in straightening the moral problems of Miss I-Ieim's proteges and the writing of the three-yard shelf of books on "Training the Child in the Way He Should Go" has placed him in the Hall of Fame. BOOK 'III little ftluurneps tn the i1?omes nf QBreat Philosophers -Q ELIZABETH NEUNER Ma Neuner, famous detective, needs no introduc- tion to the political circle. All remember her memor- able unfolding of the complex tangle of the "unforget- table Coffee Pot Handle Scandal." This act has placed her in line for nomination in the next presi- dential campaign. VIOLET VANNATTA "Palm reading is out of date," say the critics, but many are the students of the books compounded by Senorita VanNatta in the past fifty years. The Senorita calls to her aid the elements and spirits startling even the followers of Houdini. BOOK IV little Eluurneps to the Hanmes nt filiminent Hlrtists EVELYN MESSINGER Daylight never has seen Miss Messinger not wearing the paint-dabbled smock, which shows the rainbow colors she used in her well-received adver- tisements--masterpieces of the art-displaying to Japan, Russia, and Honolulu the fame of the American stores. VERNA LICHTENWALNER ln our journeys, we stopped in Bohemia to learn more of Miss Lichtenwalner's career as the Berman primadonna. Experience has been a kind teacher to our old friend who has made her fortune in singing for the famous Boerstler orthotelagraphic repro- ducing machine. DOROTHY SMART Dorothy's name is the only one of the class to appear in the program of the Thighadrome. With her famous modern Apache dance, "The Newbergf' she thrilled Greenwich Village to the extent that they opened a free hall in which to practice the famous steps. - I32l BOOK V little Slnurneps tu the homes of Brest Reformers IRENE REIMER None would have recognized in the tiny white- haired lady the former vivacious fun-maker of the class of '26. Young people the world-over traveled to her thatched cottage to hear the words of wisdom she expounded to them. After her death, two years ago, they built in her memory a famous library con- taining a life-sized portrait, painted by her old friend, Miss Messinger. GERALDINE CHILDRESS We can only say of Mrs. Jackson Cnee Childressj that the Hoppers of '86 should study her life and heed her advice and follow her motto, "Nature is invin- cible." Mrs. Jackson is a staunch supporter of the cause of anti-cosmetics. Her essays on the subject are used in the textbooks of the royalty of the conti- nent. ISABELLA BONSTEIN Mrs. Corner fnee Bonsteinj has given the world an invention aiding the construction of vaporplanes, which has won the gratitude of all the folk living between the city of Nazareth and the metropolis of Bath. Her name will be linked with that of "Bob" Fulton in the histories to be studied by following generations. I i331 Nazareth High School BOOK V I little Sluurneps tn the homes nt Eminent Qbraturs CLETA SCHLEGEL On our ocean voyage while in search of material for these volumes, we perused the newest set of Miss Schlegel's famous stilt orations. The new voice magnifying radio has aided Miss Schlegel in giving to the masses her wonderful messages. Hail to our little victor! MARY WUNDERLY Last Christmas, plump chickens graced the tables of the rich, vieing in deliciousness the turkey gobhlers of former years. This change is due to the systematic and scientific methods used by Mrs. Strocker fnee Wunderlyj in her research work concerning poultry of the finest types. Mrs. Strocker is the recipient of numerous medals and prizes given her in recog- nition of her great services to science. ' BOOK VII little fllnurneps tn the llaumes of Qbreat ,ieientists FRANCES WOTRING Dr. Wotring, anti-avoirdupois specialist, is widely renowned for her wonderful services to members of the "400," who, after several weeks of gaiety, go for a time to her hospital, where, after several operations, she rejuvenates them, restoring their lost youth, 'Che Comet 1926 which enables them to wear without fear the slender- izing lines of Madame Rundle's Parisian gowns. Geraldine Childress, finding her cosmetics did not aid her forever, became one of Dr. Wotring's noted patients. WILSON BOERSTLER The second "Tomrny". Edison! Much to the wonder of his classmates Wilson led a quiet life in the quaint' pastoral section of Belfast. Now people know the reason. The world is enriched manifold by the orthotelagraphic reproducing machine which he has given it. PAUL 'RUSSELL Again is the United States a beautiful country. The beautiful forests which cover the land which once was bare of plant life owe their birth to the untiring efforts of this venerable nature-loving forester, who is now Secretary of the Interior in the President's Cabinet. BOOK VIII little Slnurneps to the ilaumes nf Qbreat Qleadgers EVELYN I-IEARN Travel with us to Edelmans, now the famous seat of learning of all geologists. It is Evelyn l-learn fdon't call her Mrs. Youngl, who, dynamite in pocket, miscroscope in hand, leads forth bands of students who listen, open-mouthed, to her teachings. We do not know, but we do believe she started leaning toward this profound profession when she used to splash through the mud on the way to Nazareth High School. Evelyn's most famous discovery was the Belfastian diamond mine, which now rivals the Kimberly. ' MARY SANDERCOCK Alexandria-seat of learning of the modern age. Behold! A white building vieing with the Panthenon in beauty. The Ruler, thereof, is Mary Sandercock, D. D. fDoctor of Drarnaticsf, instructing the young Alexandrians in the arts relating to the ancient drama. Her most famous pupil is Sara Burnhard, who acted in "Miss Butterwalkf' Doctor Sander- i::ock's world-known drama is entitled, "She Rises to all." FRANCES Ron-I "Who's Who?" proclaims Frances as the most widely sought-after guide for the children of European royalty. This quiet lady is learned in all the dead languages to such an extent that her word in their translation is taken as law. Her translation of "Cleopatra's Will"-well, it's a work of art. It is being used as a reference in Egyptian schools, author- ized by the King Tot. l34l Nazareth High Sehool latest amine uf Saetnest music Iiaear Ulbese Returns! fairs of the Sveasnn Emma Bonser. . . . .

M A RTHA Ron-1 mass Ziaistnrp EPTEMBER, l925, saw the old familiar faces back at Nazareth High, "Success and fame always attend those who labor well," so who could question our present enviable position? Our first venture in search of the pot of gold was the sale of Lyceum tickets, in which all the classes participated. We were awarded the largest percentage of the surplus profits. We served appetizing meals in the gymnasium during the week of the Teachers' County Institute, and realized quite an encouraging profit. Our heartiest thanks are due those mothers who so kindly assisted us. ln the matter of entertainment the Junior-Senior Reception ranks as the diversion of the year. Our committee did not spare time or'labor to achieve something worthwhile. The harmonious color scheme of the decorations, the music, dancing, and games combined to give the revelers pleasure. As an American History Club we dramatized historical events, debated current questions, and rendered selections which were effectively delivered and well received. A trip to the Whitfield Museum served to increase our knowledge of local history. The class has a good representation in the orchestra, glee clubs, debating, and basketball teams. 1 Our senior year is approaching. New thoughts, new life, new responsibilities are gradually dawning upon us. Not as individuals, but as a class shall we go forth to meet them, for "ln Unity There is Strength." M.

The first task intrusted to us was that of hazing the freshmen which proved an enjoyable occupation. 1 We are proud of the fact that several boys and girls from the class are now playing on our varsity teams. - We elected as our faculty advisor, Mr. Christ. We were all sorry to hear that he would leave, which he did at the beginning of the year. We consider ourselves very fortunate in being able to have Mr. Gorr as his successor. This year we had our first class party, which proved to be a great success. A History Club was organized under the guidance of Miss Nicholas for the purpose of increasing our interest in World History. May the coming years be even more successful than the past ones have been. D. W., '28 Che Comet 1926 Kathryn Andrews. ........... . . Earl Audenried. . . Leon Brong ...... Evelyn Edgar ....

' We were cordially welcomed by the upper classmen and soon became accus- tomed to the new methods and our regular routine of work. We soon organized our class, with lVlr. Stocker as advisor, and now hold monthly business meetings. We have done our part on the assembly and - Literary Society programs. It has been the custom of each Freshman Class to present a picture to the High School. Gur choice was a portrait of George Washington. Quite a number of freshmen went on the annual hike to Saylor's Lake in the fall and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Many of our boys and girls are active in basketball. There are several freshmen in the High School Orchestra, and freshmen voices help swell the choruses in the boys' and girls' Glee Clubs. p ln three years we hope to have a graduating class, of which the citizens Will be proud, both in regard to number and scholarship.

This is the first event of this kind given at the High School and it met with great success. The story of the "Feast of the Little Lanterns" centers around Princess Chan. The ancestral estate of Princess Chan is held in trust until the night of the feast of the Little Lanterns, when it shall be given to the two surviving chil- dren. Princess Chan lost her brother and sister when they were children at play in the mountain summer home. She is in great sorrow at the thought of losing her home, which, however, is saved for her. Various legends are woven into the text of the songs by the diH:erent choruses. The juggler-maid, Mai Ku, furnished entertainment and amusement. Ow Long, the governess to the Princess, is very pleasing in her ways. The little juggler-maid returns with the news from the emperor that the sister of the princess is alive. Orders are sent out that every place be searched. ln searching the garden the little maid of the princess, Wee Ling, finds a locket which the juggler maid claims as hers, in which is found the half of a chain which exactly matches the one of the princess. They recognize each other as sisters and are overjoyed that the home shall continue to be theirs. The feast of the little Lanterns is progressing with gayety as the curtain falls. 60 6 PROGRAM AND Nazareth Iiigh School S YN OPS I S The operetta was presented in two acts, the following comprising the pro- gram: ACT I Overture .... ................................

ANNUAL HIGH SCHOOL HIKE On a misty morning in October the students started away for Saylor's Lake. The lusty cheers and songs soon drove away the clouds and the sunny skies matched the beaming faces of the hikers. One must admit that few Hhoofedn it, for who could resist the kind offers of "lifts" along the turnpike? 'Che Comet 1 926 Into the pavilion and to the grounds swarmed the gay ones and soon the air resounded with the music for dancing, the yells of the players and the cries of those who took to canoes and boats. At noon the hungry appetites of the girls and boys rivaled those of the chaperones fwho forgot to be clignifiedl. After a day brimful of fun, the merry-makers returned, the gaiety persisting until the very end.

With some crowding room was found for the freshies, who were royally welcomed. The one cloud on the horizon was that many of our older friends were no longer with us. We miss every one and hope their new ventures will be as successful as their course was with us. A storm of anxiety has burst upon us. We were told that reports will not be given out until October 20th. Aren't you sorry that you can't share in the deluge? Love, BETTY ,Io 31 DE . 2? . October 31, 1925 My dear Mimi: School was just one round of meetings, parties, campaigns and lessons this month. Delightful mix- ture, is it not? Quite a rush, too-several freshies fell up and down steps. Reports at last arrived and reassured all of us. We then turned our attention to parties. As a result, we had strange gatherings in the "gyms" during Institute Week, which disbanded at late hours. l7ll I hope the goblins didn't git you. The magazine campaign was a great success, thanks to the splendid co-operation of the lower classes. Say, by the way, 1 wonder why school pupils like Institute Week. No doubt you agree with me that this is a spiffy subject for an essay. Lovingly, BETTY ,Io as va as Monday, November 30, 1925 Dearest Mimi: Another month has just closed with our raft still afloat. Somehow, the waters were rougher and we encountered frequent storms, but, as a general rule, we all enjoyed the change. Thanksgiving Day and Armistice Day served as "breakers" for us. The former witnessed-eats!! The day following meant sorrow. Even the heavens sympathized with us by sending us rain as a sign of grief to accompany us on our dreary journey back to school. Today served to settle us back into our usual routine. As ever, BETTY jo 'Che Comet 1926 December 24, I925 Mimi, Dear: It is easy to write, isn't it, when you can see a promising vacation before you? The one subject of conversation this month was gifts and some more gifts. Santa was included in our rather large list of visitors. He was both generous and entertaining. Since seeing, "The Birds' Christmas Carol," every one seems to have entered more into the spirit of the season. I'm afraid our little boat will feel quite deserted for a week or more. However, all of us are coming back with the exception of Mr. Christ, who is going to board another vessel. The one consolation we have is his promise to come to see us whenever he is able to do so. With love, BETTY ,Io as ak af January 29, l926 Darlingcst Mimi: Rough weather's ahead. A terrible storm is brewing, but our captain and crew do not seem to be disturbed at all. As to the rest of us-we are busy acquiring life- savers in the form of textbook knowledge, so that we will have a "passing" chance. l However, we have had many pleasant times. We thought we knew all about parties, but we find that We are just getting that experience now. Then, too, there are Literary and Musical meetings. We rnustn't forget them, as they prove a delightful diversion. And talking about diversions-notes surely come in that class. Let me add, there aren't a few of them either. We have lost the latest addition to the crew, Mr. Hutchinson. We were very sorry to see him go, as he was well-liked by all of us. Nuff's said for this time. Always, BETTY .Io as as an February 27, l926 My clear Mimi.' The storm has come and gone. We are all happy Q? Q D now. But cheer up! We know we'll en- counter another before disembarking in June. A new Science teacher arrived with the opening of school this month and he rapidly established a friend- ship with the entire student body. This month was one of relaxation and every one seemed to have availed himself of the opportunity to "rest up." The weather was extremely cold at times, but the coasting was wonderful. l72l The pupils are delighted that they now have ample opportunity to read more books. iBook reports are again the regular thingj We know we can't rest forever and have accepted the fact that there will be Work to do next month. Love, BETTY ,Io :ze wk ar: March 31, l926 Dearest Mimi: This certainly is a busy season. Tomorrow noon we desert school and give ourselves a vacation. Many things have occurred during the month. We heard two very fine lectures-the first by Dr. Flude, which was on China and Japan, while the second was by Mr. Joseph Mechanico on lndian life. Basketball has ended for the season. Debates and orations attracted a great deal of attention and aroused friendly competition. Preparations for' a Junior-Senior Reception for which invitations have been sent out, and for the Senior Play and an Operetta are being made. The latter is to be given by the Girls' Glee Club. So, all in all, you see, our little vessel is just bubbling over with excitement. l-lowever, next month prom- ises to furnish even more. Love, BETTY ,Io I 73 l Nazareth High School April 30, 1926 My dear Mimi: This month spelled WORK for us and not a little of it either. However, it was accompanied by fun galore, which amply repaid the laborious efforts. The preparations for the Senior Play, the sale of tickets and, finally, its presentation kept our vessel in a bustle. The different school departments, teachers and lower classmen gallantly came to the aid of the Seniors who appreciate their kind efforts. just at this moment, we are waiting for the pre- sentation of the play for its second successful evening. After that, we will look for other work to do. l will tell you of this work next month. With love, BETTY ,Io wk :lf Sl! ' May 3l, 1926 Mimi, Dear: Our voyage is rapidly nearing its close. fSeniors are divided between joy and sorrow at the thought., An exhibit and the presentation of "The Feast of the Little Lanterns" brought many townsfolk out to our vessel. Hikes began to attract attention from the pupils, as do all things which mean fun. Che Comet 1926 Reports were royally welcomed-and just as royally discarded by some pupils. Seniors are busy preparing for the Washington trip. Of course, every one is looking forward to exams Q ? QD Anyway, what would school be without diversions? Food for thought, n'est-ce pas? Lovingly, BETTY Jo Sl: 'lf if june 25, l926 Darlingcst Mimi: This evening our boat touched shore. Solemn- faced Seniors bade farewell to the school which has become so endeared to them. However, at the beginning of the month, this same group was taking examinations and soon afterward formed a smiling traveling group. A few days later they returned, tired-out, but still smiling. However, now ceremonies are past and Senior farewells have been made. This day marks one of the happiest yet saddest days that we will ever have. There remains our farewell to you. Our short notes to you held few explanations and we wish to thank you for your patience in "reading between lines," also, for the interest which you took in them. And now-a sad farewell.
