LOOKING TOWARD THE FUTURE
M. Lunsford, '33
"Take care of the pennies, the dollars will
watch out for themselvesf' Clancing over a
group of well-known maxims, I came upon
this one, which has been so frequently quoted
by people in all walks of life. However,
instead of pondering upon its truth and
simplicity, I recalled a similar idea. "Take
care of the minutes and hours, the days,
weeks, and years will watch out for them-
As we go about our accustomed duties, few
of us realize the veracity of this statement.
So often we plunge into a new enterprize
without considering its effect upon our life
as a whole and while away precious minutes
in idle dreaming or worthless occupation,
without realizing that truly meritorious ac-
complishments are thereby being made more
difficult. Few people need the reminder that
'fall work and no play makes Jack a dull
boyf, but many of us use this as an excuse
for dawdling, and squandering our oppor-
tunities. Consider the effort that was expended
by any of our successful countrymen whose
accomplishments were hard-won and were
obtained by no means on "a silver platterf'
Washington, Lincoln, Edison, or any of our
gloriously acclaimed heroes deserved great
credit for discovering, and then sticking to
the road which would bring him ultimately
to his goal.
Especially in our school years how easy
it is to let matters slide and not bother about
the extra effort! "What is the difference
between a plus and a minus when you are
through school, anyhow?,' Just this! By
putting forth that extra effort and proving to
yourself that the higher mark was possible,
you have thereby further devetloped your
will-power and in the future any effort will
be just that much easier. When we are
beyond the care and protection of our
parents and teachers, we shall be faced with
making all serious decisions alone, affecting
not only our lives and happiness, but also the
well-being of many others. How greatly will
the character building we accomplished dur-
ing our school career help us at these times!
Our lives, now, are in the embryo stages
of production. May we realize the importance
of our every deed, and aim to achieve our
desired goal. Cod has given man golden
hours, each containing sixty precious minutes.
May we use them for the greatest benefit to
ourselves and to all mankind!
SENIOR and SOPH !

Seniors: You don't need lectures to spur
you on to unknown heights. Youill face the
world with courage, ability, and youth. Life
will not disillusion you. You'll leave us
here while you carry on, undaunted, striving
for your ideals and standards.
Sophomores: Only one third of your visit
here is complete. Much lies before you-
success or failure, by which is your life to be
influenced? Careful planning and discrimi-
nating judgment now will decide for you.
Opportunity is offered you. Follow it!
Juniors: You are "in-betweenf' You are
working eagerly and pressing onward to a
distant goal. Creative ideas fill your minds.
You are forming definite plans. Cain know-
ledge and wisdom in your remaining year in
school. Cather seeds of learning for future
use. Do not forget-graduation comes in

A DISTURBING HUMOR
Jessie Stewart, '33
What is this we hear about the Home
Economics and Manual Training departments
being abolished from the High School curri-
culum? Let's hope it is just a rumor, for
many pupils would thus be deprived of their
favorite subjects. ln these times of depres-
sion, many girls are finding it hard to make
a place for themselves in the business world
and may well turn their attention to the
home. How can one pass the time more
profitably than in creating some article of
clothing fand with the price of cloth, today,
this would save quite a little moneyj or in
preparing some luscious morsel to tempt the
appetite? Home conditions are not always
suitable for learning and practisingg it is,
therefore, entirely up to the High School to
see that those pupils interested, are adequately
encouraged to develop their talents in this
High School prepares us, not only for
higher education, in math or dietetics, but for
conducting ourselves properly and gracefully.
What is more essential to us than the rules of
etiquette? Girls do much entertaining at
home, and it is fitting that they should be
taught how to perform their duties, as
hostesses and as guests. Table manners are
also necessary if one would be a success
socially, yet even such fundamental training
is 'often neglected in the home.
Another important factor taught in this
department is marketing. Although pros-
perity is just around the corner, no one is,
as yet, ready to throw away her money. ln
school, we are taught how to get the most
for our money and how to buy economically
the things necessary to keep our bodies
healthy. The pupil is also taught to concoct
dainty dishes for invalids and how to arrange
their trays in a tempting manner.
These functions may prove more useful in
the education of a girl than foreign languages,
mathematics, or history. Of course, every-
thing has its place. However, when a young
woman comes to make a home of her own,
her efficiency as a capable housekeeper may
help materially to make a successful mar-
riage, and after all, a hungry man cannot be
fed on Spanish verbs.
"We may live without poetry, music and art:
We may live without conscience and live
We may live without friendsg we may live
But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
He may live without books-what is know-
ledge but grieving?
He may live without hope-what is hope
He may live without love-what is passion
But where is the man that can live without
OH, FOR A WALK!
Eunice Whitaker, '33
Picture an ordinary spring day, with its
mud-puddles and soft, oozy ground. Or
think of a winter day, just after a snow-
storm, when the sun is beating down and
melting the white drifts, transforming them
into rivulets, brooks, and lakes. Then im-
agine a procession of laboring students plod-
ding southward along Wiebster Street, de-
spairingly taking to the street because of the
condition of the dirt sidewalk. Automobil-
ists toot their horns impatiently, glare at the
unfortunate offenders, but what can a poor
pedestrian do? Surely it is better even to
risk sudden death at the hands of a driver
than to brave the agony of sinking deep-
deep down into swamps of black muck or of
wading and plowing through dirty oceans
with muddy beds.
The dream of these patient pilgrims is of
a white, shining concrete walk, winding to
the ultimate goal, good old N. H. S. This
visionary walk would defy the sloppiest
weather to turn it to mud, would disdainfully
watch those same streams of water run grace-
fully from its back, and would proudly bear
up the heaviest owners of the feet that would
march gaily along it.

THE HAPPINESS THAT WAS PALUCHPS
Royal Abbott, T33
Timidly Paluchi shifted his weight from
foot to foot and sought to conceal l1is
eagerness. ul never had the chance to study
under a lllllSl0l',7, he pleaded, Ubut, ah Cod!
He who has seen the sun setting over the
towers of St. Elmo in Napoli would play the
violin even without teachingf' The color
that had been rising to his wizened checks
began to recede and he continued more
calmly, G'lVfy teachers were--just teachers. l
know lim not equal to the more difficult tech-
nique, but still--" and his voice trailed away
The Director considered. Paluchi was
getting pretty old. Already he seemed to
totter slightly, or perhaps that was just
imagination. Wxielllw the Director somewhat
briskly ejaculated, H1711 let you play your
precious fiddle at the next concertfi Then,
not wishing to dampen the little manis joy
by appearing harsh, he added more cheer-
fully, "lt won't require any skill you havenit
got. The numbers on the programme are,
l imagine, quite familiar to you."
The little Italian rushed excitedly away
after profusc thanks that threatened to become
embarrassing to the Director.
The evening that Paluchi had awaited for
a life-time arrived. He precipitated himself
into the orchestra pit and shortly afterwards
the conductor's baton started the music that
raced Paluchi's mind through all the fantasies
The music was light, rapid, and soon
Paluchi saw himself as the little boy running
again in the streets of lXapoli, playing naked
around the fountain in the market-place. For
an instant the notes of his score looked like
the drops of water that he had splashed so
gleefully at the young girls, who carrie
ostensibly to till their pitchers, but really to
gossip in the warm sun and shake their black
hair with laughter. Then the score once more
took on its formal black and white correct-
ness, and Paluchi, looking at the conductor,
felt the warm soul of his violin leap and
quiver at every beckon of the leader.
Then the music became softer, was sus-
tained mainly' by the violins, and its slow
sensuality' quickened the poundings of blood
at his temples. The color mounted to his
cheeks with the increasing fire of the music,
and before his eyes young men and supple
black-eyed girls were dancing in a courtyard
to the low song of violins. He remembered
those nights, so warm, yet quickened by the
cool wind, the soft laughter and voices, the
gaiety, the love-making, and high above all
the ancient ltalian moon. Nowhere in the
World was the moon so passionately beautiful
as in his Napoli.
The figures suddenly vanished and Paluchi
f10l THE ADVOCATE
heard a fanfare of trumpets and the muffled
drumming of many feet. Uniform followed
uniform in seeming infinite procession, then
crash and shock and tumultuous din, agonized
cries and hot oaths sworn against the God
who would allow such carnage. The stench
was overpowering and he nearly reeled, but
as suddenly as it began it ceased, and the
music became cold and emotionless. A
maiden clad in purest white armor moved
gravely across the battle field. The violins
were carrying the melody again, and Paluchi
felt something of the awe and moving great-
ness of that white hgure of Death. Tenderly
she touched a body lying on the battle field
and the soldier rose and followed her.
The sorrow of ages was upon her brow as
shc passed, and Paluchi felt a magnetic im-
pulse and tried to follow her. Meanwhile the
violins soared higher with a coldness of tone
that transcended the finite and took on some-
thing of the infinite. Then-a burst of music
as the programme ended, and he was follow-
ing her along with many others.
It was thought strange by some in the
audience that one violinist moved not at all,
nor rose to bow with the orchestra.
Fred Shaker, 734
Buzz! Crackle! Snap! I am alone in the
house and listening to my favorite program
on the radio. The radio begins its daily
protest to the usage it receives. I wouldn't
mind it so much if it would happen while
someone else is listening to it, but it always
takes to these spasms when I am sitting
At the beginning of the usual procedure I
grimly resolve, with the integrity of ,my
ancestors at Bunker Hill, either to stop that
infernal noise or the radio. So, with fire in
my eye, I search for the hammer, screw-
driver, and monkey-wrench. After a very
aggravating search for the hidden weapons, I
finally discover them in an obscure corner.
My ardor somewhat daunted by the search,
I return to the radio. On hearing again its
angry growl, my dampened ardor soars to the
unattained heights. I peer into the bowels of
my patient and begin operations on the tubes.
After removing them, I place them at a little
distance from the cause of my indignation.
I then take out the screws and nuts. Some
of the nuts show fight and, not being able
to move them with the wrench, I take to the
hammer. As my arm rises for the third
blow, the traitorous head takes leave of the
handle and makes a forced landing smashing
the complete set of tubes.
Nevertheless I continue to remove the nuts
and screws until I have a miscellaneous col-
lection. Not finding any apparent ailment in
my harsh-toned patient, I proceed in my
attempt to replace its vitals. After many
grunts and the wasting of much needed energy
by my somewhat strained vocal chords, I
succeed in getting a fraction of them back
again, but much to 1ny dismay I have more
parts than places to put them. just then in
bursts the rest of the family.
After my paying for eight new tubes and a
Grst class electrician, my enterprises are very
much stunted for the next few weeks. Now
I turn on the radio and listen contentedly to
the pent up explosions of '4Crackle! snap!
buzzli' saved for my special entertainment by
the diabolical mechanism.
THE WAY TO LIVE
Mayola Wall, '34
To be today the best I can,
And see each duty through,
To fail no friend, or anyone,
But simply be true blue.
To leave the cares of yesterday
Wrapped up in clouds of hope,
And make tomorrow's brilliant dawn
Contain a wider scope.

Judy Brown led her 'ggangv into all kinds
of mischief, and was the impertinent spoiled
darling of her doting father's heart. Then
Aunt Hannah Brown arrived, bag and bag-
gage, and Judy became the object of her
persecutions. Aunt Hannah was Mr. Brown's
only sister, a typical New England spinster
with a very stern conscience. Why, the
child was going from bad to worse since her
mother died, and since Aunt Hannah was the
only near relative she considered it her duty
to take charge.
A few mornings later Judy was cozily
curled up in bed, for she considered vacation
the time to be lazy. A sharp knock sounded
on her door at about nine oiclock and, not
receiving an answer Aunt Hannah stalked in
with her usual firm tread. Judy frowned in
annoyance, but quickly smoothed her fore-
head and remained sweetly sleeping.
MJudith, wake up. I say-wake upiw
commanded Aunt Hannah, enunciating each
word crisply and decisively.
A mild snore came from the bed, then a
'6Judith, I will count to ten before I act.
Make up your mind quickly. One, twof,
fanother snorel, "three, four, fivefi fa groan
as the figure on the bed turned over,J Hsix,
seven, eight, nine,', fa louder snorej uten.
Well?', Aunt Hannah silently walked from
the room, her back ram-rod straight and
bristling with indignation.
Judy stretched like a sleepy kitten, winked
wickedly at a spot of sunlight dancing on the
ceiling and prepared to snooze until noon.
Aunt Hannah returned almost immediately
and grimly gazed at the innocent, apparently
sleeping face on the pillow.
uJudith Brown, every morning for five days
I have called you for breakfast and you have
continued to sleep. Will you or will you
not get up?,, As the only reply was a
pathetic snore, Aunt Hannah deliberately
doused the icy contents of a tumbler of water
into her niece's face. The result was quite
effective. Judy started up with a yell and
peered angrily through the little streams of
water dripping from her tousled hair. Then
in sullen silence she arose and sailed from
the room with her head held high.
That afternoon Judy snuggled in the porch
hammock and busily wrote for a few minutes
on a large piece of paper with 4'Bevenge', in
bold letters at the top. Finally, she ceased
writing and stamped around the porch,
gesticulating wildly, and mumbling fiercely to
MAhal Miss Hannah Brown, you would
treat your loving niece so wickedly, would
you! I, Sir Rowland, the fair ladyis suitor
and obedient servant, do challenge you-li'

Jane Walsh, Judyis best friend and 'gpartner

Jane listened delightedly to Judy's scheme,
for Aunt Hannah had interrupted many choice
bits of mischief. Finally, she said, "What
fun! I just canlt wait until Sunday! She
is so strict about our behavior in Church.
Letis call up now and see if I can spend the
week-end with you."
On Sunday morning two carefully subdued
girls prepared to go to church with Aunt
Hannah. When the church bell rang Aunt
Hannah, with the sedate two girls, seated
herself in the Brown pew. In the hush of
the silent congregation, Judy suddenly began
to sneeze violently. Aunt Hannah gave her
IIZJ THE ADVOCATE
a stern glance as the sneezes continued. Jane
leaned over Aunt Hannah and solemnly
offered the sufferer a handkerchief. Judy
nodded gratefully and the sneezes subsided.
Ten minutes later, during the morning
prayer, Jane began to hic-cough with a
rhythmic gulp which seemed to Aunt
Hannahis imagination to extend in all
MHold your breath and count to seven,',
she whispered guiltily. Imagine Aunt Han-
nah whispering in church! Judy looked
shocked. So did Aunt Hannah!
The hic-coughs continued and then poor
Judy felt another spell coming on. Glancing
quickly at Aunt Hannah, she raised Jane's
handkerchief to her nose and began to sneeze.
The minister talked on, Jane coughed on, and
Judy continued to sneeze convulsively. In
an effort to stop, she dropped her hymn book
with a clatter, and Aunt Hannalfs cheeks
became redder and redder, although the at-
mosphere in the church was becoming frigid.
Finally, the benediction was pronounced and
Aunt Hannah propelled the choking girls
home without even bowing to the minister.
Judy collapsed on the sofa, as Aunt
Hannah went upstairs, and giggled hysteri-
u0h! Judy,', shrieked Jane, '4didn't that
pepper in our handkcrchiefs work marvel-
'Sweet Revenge!" sighed Judy, wiping her
streamin' eyes. A. funny expression crossed
her face as her nose twitched convulsively.

W'hat is rain? lVIr. Webster would have
us believe that it is "water in drops dis-
charged from the clouds." Wfell, I donit
blame the clouds for discharging it! Of all
the miserable, disgusting, useless elements, I
consider rain to be the worst! And it always
comes just when you don't want it to. When
you are all ready for a picnic, or some other
outing, some observing individual is certain
to inform you that clouds are gathering in
the west, and that he just felt a drop of rain.
Mother thinks you had better stay home, al-
though father says it will be all right to take
a chance. So you stay home.
There are some people, however, who actu-
ally enjoy rain. I happened to meet one of
these lunatics the other day.
HDO you knowfi he said, HI get thc biggest
thrill out of walking in the rain?'7
Well, if anyone finds anything thrilling
about getting all bundled up in a raincoat,

The well-known novelist, Varney, climbed
the long Hight of stairs to his attic room with
a broad smile on his red face. The froth of
an early mug of beer hung on his drooping
mustache. He pounded himself briskly on
the chest when he thought of his fifteenth
novel lying completed on his desk.
"Best ever," he muttered, alluding to his
novel. c'Couldn't be a better hero in a book
than Dickey, sheik though he is. Ladies like
him pretty wellf, Varney climbed on,
chuckling as he went. He sprang heavily up
the stairs to his door, and, pushing the sacred
portal open, he peeped inside. He liked to
see his beloved manuscript lying neatly on
the desk lid.
Suddenly Varney leaped into his room
with an angry shout, for there-there were
the pages of his precious manuscript scat-
tered over the desk and fioor. Crimly
Varney picked up the papers and arranged
them. At a slight sneeze behind him Varney
wheeled about, astonished. There on the old
couch, barely discernible in the gray light of
the dying day, Varney saw-Dickey, the
HK - k - k - ker -- choo li' sneezed Dickey.
MClimbed out of the old book. Whoever
heard of a hero with a cold? Oh-h-bl My
head aches, by nose tickles, my throat's sore,
and my eyes water. I'm burning all over but
my feet are cold. Bring me another blanket
Wildly Varney obeyed and he brought
other things toofa hot water bag, broth, pil-
lows, and medicine. He replaced the silk
handkerchief with two substantial cotton
squares, and he removed from Dickey's but-
tonhole the ever-fresh Carnation, which
seemed to make Dickey sneeze the more.
All night through Varney sat by the couch
and soothed the miserable man. Between his
fitful dozings Dickey upbraided himself for
having such an unromantic sickness as a cold.
He coughed, sneezed, sniffied, and groaned,
but disturbed not Varney, who was as patient
with Dickey as a mother with an erring child.
After a long noisy sleep, at dawn Dickey
woke and hailed Varney with a weak smile
on his pale face.
'Think I'll get well?,' Dickey inquired
with such hope in his high-pitched voice that
Varney took the child of his brain to his
4'Surc, you will get well. We'll carry you
through it," he replied in his gruff voice.
He went to the other side of the room to hide
his face for he knew that Dickey had pneu-
monia. Varney lifted l1is head and prayed
to Cod that he would get well.
For a week Varney slaved for Dickey, who
only grew paler and thinner every hour.
Sometimes he was delirious, and he always
raved of the same thingfthe absurdity of a
magnificent hero having a common yet ter-
rible cold like this.
One foggy morning Varney sat beside
Dickey and watched his only child die.
Dickey clung to his hand to the end and tried
to tell himself that he was not dying, that a
hero could not die, that a hero lives forever.
Varney watched him with tear-filled eyes,
and when Dickey's eyes had closed, and the
carnation had wilted, 'Varney slumped in his
chair and went to sleep with tears trickling
down his nose.
At midnight Varney gathered the crumpled
form of Dickey up in his arms and carried
him far out into the country. There, beside
an apple tree, he buried him and erected this
marker over the grave.
Here Lies Dickey
Hero of My Fifteenth Novel
Varney went home and burned his novel.
He said as he watched the leaves curl up
IMI THE ADVOCATE
in the leaping hre, L'I'll do it because my
hero has died, but he is my only hero who
has ever lived."
fl: Pk :lf
Years later a wandering man found a
marker with the immortal Varney's name
written upon it. With the help of friends
he dug far into the earth, but all they found
was a hardened carnation, its white petals
gray with the work of the ages.
TO BE READ WHEN YOU ARE STUCK
IN THE SNOW
Richard Warren, '33
Donft start swearing, pal, or you will never
get out. I know the road is slippery, your
tires are smooth, your gas is low, you haven't
any chains, and you want to go places in a
hurry. I've been in your shoes many times
and I didn't have time to wait for the snow
to melt around the car. It is a very delicate
and complicated system, this getting out of
drifts or what have youg but if you follow
directions carefully you may get out.
Usually when you start driving in a snow-
storm, you donit think of bringing along a
shovel in case you do get stuck. But if, by
chance, Providence hath lain a shovel in the
rear of the family car, you are in luck. All
you have to do is shovel the drift away, and
then try to keep from sliding into another.
You are fortunate if you happen to be
stuck on a hill. If your car is fairly light,
like my Chevvy, it won't be so hard. Try
putting the car into first or reverse and see
where you get-probably farther into the
drift. Then try pushing, downhill of course.
If this doesnat work, leave the engine run-
ning, put it into reverse and push, but make
sure you leave the door open so that, when
it does start going out of the drift, you can
hop in and guide the car to the bottom of the
hill. Then begin your ascent anew. You'll
probably get stuck again, but keep trying
until you succeed. You couldn't think of
turning around and taking another road.
If you are stuck on the level without a
shovel, you are in for a tough time. Ask the
man who knows. You may be able to push
it if you are big enough, or think you are.
You may be able to kick the drift away with
feet and arms used windmill fashion. But
I think it would be best for you to sit inside,
cool your heels, and wait until somebody
with chains comes along and pushes you out.
This last method may make you think you
are a parasite on society, but not at all, most
people like to help fellow men in distress.
I consider it the best way, too. It saves you
a strained back the next morning. fHave I
ever had those?I It saves gas and tires,
which is much more appealing to the pater
when you arrive at the old homestead.
fDon,t I know itll I
So, if you are behind on sleep, sleep while
waiting for a kind fellow adventurer of the
broad highway-but you're probably on a
byway. Look at the scenery, glance over
your road map, do anything you like, and
see if I care. Good luck, pall

Like a ray of brightest sunshine
His cheery smile flashed,
Bringing gladness to the hearts
Of those he passed.
His eyes were ever twinkling
With the fun he loved so well,
And his voice was full of laughter
As it gaily rose and fell.
A kindly spirit of helpfulness,
A willingness to do-
These made me love and honor him
His whole life through.

The final act of Fate,
I know that NBuddy" will be there,

THE CUP IN THE BIG GLASS CASE
Edmund Hanson, '33
It was house-warming night at the new
Attica High School. Everywhere throughout
the building a buzz of excitement prevailed.
Harassed taxpayers critically examined the
cause for their boosted tax rates. Building
committeemen strutted about, looking for
people to ask them questions and tell them
how well they had done their task. Efferves-
cent mothers ohid at every new-fangled doo-
dad called to their attention by self-conscious
students appointed to do so. All the grown-
ups kept reminding each other and their off-
spring that, '6We never had such opportuni-
ties when we were children. The young
people today donst realize how lucky they
are," while the lucky young generation won-
dered if their parents had ever been subjected
to an English teacher like Miss Soandso or
a math instructor like Mr. Whosis.
Everyone had an education complex that
evening and the trophy room just off the main
hall, near the front entrance, was almost
deserted. ln spite of its fresh newness it was
a room of memories to any former member of
the school. Pictures of long ago teams
adorned the creamy walls. Fragments of
shattered goal posts rested on tables.
Tattered numbered jersies of plunging full-
backs, worn track shoes of long since stiff-
kneed sprinters, and faded caps and battered
gloves of slugging outiielders graced the wall
cases. ln the center of the room stood a
large glass case containing a single, huge
silver cup. Before this case stood the only
occupant of the room, a middle aged man
of medium height and stocky build. His
bearing seemed to mark him as a former
athlete, although he was beginning to show
signs of many hours of office work. He was
a typical moderately successful small-town
business man, who might have had a son in

at the newly-polished cup. It seemed to be
the most highly prized trophy in the room.
It bore the inscription:-

Another man entered the room. He was
about the same age, but tall and heavily

built. He might have been a wrestler or a
shot-putter in his younger days. The two
glanced at each other, but no sign of recogni-
tion passed between them. The big man was
evidently a stranger, for like most small-town
business men, the other knew everyone in his
The stranger glanced about the room.
nQuite a museum here," he remarked.
44Yes-yes it is,', said the smaller man
absently, without looking up.
A moment or two elapsed, the stranger wan-
dering about the room, the other still gazing
at the cup. Suddenly, he seemed to break
the trance which held him. Then, as if to
atone for the apparent coldness with which
he had answered the stranger's remark, he

to view it more closely.

began. "Then of course you donit know what
kind of an athletic record this school has.
Well," ruefully, Nit's not very good, in fact
this cup represents the only championship
that we ever won. I say Gwei because I played
on the team that won it. Ohgonly a sub-
stitute guardf, he added apologetically, ubut
it gave me an intimate knowledge of the team
that the ordinary spectator never gotf,
"We had a crackerjack team that year, and
the whole school was all pepped up about it.
Weid never had a championship and every-
body was looking for us to come through.
There were ten teams in the league, each to
play the other teams twice on a hon1e-and-
home basis. There were some pretty good
players in that league, too. A lot of them
were later corking good college players. For
a small-town league, it certainly put on some
mighty fine games. Then, to make it all
the more interesting, old John Frothingham
put up a cup to be awarded to the highest
scorer in the league, in addition to the regular
championship cup. Old John was quite a
sports fan and basketball was his craze. He
died, ohf 'bout twelve years ago, I guess,
and he left quite a sum of money to the
Here, the speaker stopped to light his pipe.
MCan,t talk without in' pipe.
uWell, we had a forward named Fred
Burns, captain of the team-Tlashi, we called
him. Only a little fellow, stood about five-
four and weighed, ohfwell,-not more than
one-twenty, but could he play basketball!
Like a cat on his feet and fast as greased
lightnin'. Had a habit of shootin' baskets
from the middle of the Hoor. Always cool
and calm, never got excited or rattled. Nice
teller, too, popular with everybody. No one
hgured on his being a high-scorer, though, be-
cause the last year he'd been only fair and
his size sorta went against him. But after
the first two games, which we won by large
scores, heid made about forty points. Then
everyone began to sit up and take notice.
He didn't hog the shots either. He passed
when he should and was all all 'round good
team man. Every time he got his hands on
the ball, it seemed, we scored.
"Well, we breezed through seventeen of
the eighteen games scheduled and lost only
one. That was to Brewster, which had been
beaten unexpectedly by Hillsboro. That
made us tied with Brewster for first place.
The outcome of that last game decided the
championship. Whenever I think of that
game, I think of what a swell story could be
made out of it. Regular Horatio Alger set-
ting. You know Attica is to Brewster as
Harvard is to Yale, and the rivalry was some
keen in those days. There was a center who
played for Brewster, lesseefwhat was his
THE ADVOCATE f17J
name? Oh yeah, Jarvis. Big fellow, must
have weighed two hundred pounds. Fast
though, and surprisingly light on his feet for
a man of his size. He and Flash were almost
tied for scoring honors. Jarvis was good, no
question about it, but he was an individual
player, not a team man like Flash. And
then, too, he was inclined to take advantage
of his size to scare the smaller players. Heid
been disqualified several times for fighting
and for personal fouls. Well, as I say, he
and Flash were pretty close in scoring honors.
I do1'1't think Flash cared so much for the
seorer's cup as he did for this onef' pointing
to the trophy before him.
MThat game took place twenty-three years
ago, but I can still remember it. With the
championship and scoring cups at stake, the
game drew a big crowd. I can still remember
the brightly lit gym, the running, shouting
players, the changing scoreboard, and the
noisy crowd because I was so impressed that
night. You know we don't get many exciting
moments in this town, and any event like that
is remembered for a long time. Of course,
the details are a bit hazy, but I know that
Jarvis ran wild in the first half and piled up,
Lt big score. There were lots of times when
he should have passed, but he wouldn't. lt
was all Jarvis and to blazes with Brewster.
lt looked bad for Attica, but in the second
half Flash ffot froinff and when he ffot Uoinf'

the rest of the 7
team couldnt keep up with
him. Well, we gradually crept up on them,
until, with one minute to play, Brewster led
Attica by one point and Jarvis led Flash by
one point. Jarvis was getting pretty nervous
and also pretty rough. He certainly wanted
that cup, all right. The gym was like a mad-
house. I never heard such a racket in all
my life. There were just seconds left to play
when Flash got a break and dribbled down
the floor but Jarvis forced him toward a
corner. He stopped and got set to shoot. It
was a tough angle shot, but he probably could
have sunk it. He was always best in a pinch.
I suppose Jarvis thought he was going to
shoot, but instead, he passed, or tried to pass
to another man left uncovered under the
basket. But as he threw it, Jarvis drew back
his fist and let fly. I suppose he just lost his
head and did it without realizing. He caught
Flash right on the point of the chin and he
went out like a light-stone cold. Butfeas
he threw the ball, it bounced off Jarvis' fist
and looped through the basket as neat as you
please, just as the bell rang, ending the game.
I don't expect you to believe that, but itis the
"Well, sir, you could have heard a pin
drop. The noise stopped just as if a blanket
had been dropped over the whole crowd.
Everyone just held his breath and gasped.
Nobody even moved. The only noise was the
ball bouncing up and down underneath the
basket. I ran over to where Flash was.
There he was, flat on the floor, Jarvis standing
over him, stupefied. The middle finger of
the right hand was broken between the
knuckle and the first joint. He was staring
at it with the blankest expression I ever saw
on mortal man. I remember how the bone
stuck out like a candy cane at the bottom of
a Christmas stocking. 1,11 never forget that
scene as long as I live. I kneeled beside
Flash and was trying to bring him to. Then
the crowd started to rumble. It sounded
dangerous, so the Brewster team hurried
Jarvis off to the dressing room where the
crowd couldn't get at him. I think he was
almost as unconscious as Flash. He seemed
unable to understand what he had done. We
took Flash to our dressing room and doused
him under a cold shower. He came to all
right and all he had was a headache. It was
an awful sock, though, he must have been
outweighed eighty pounds.
HI donit think there were a dozen people
in tI1e audience who realized that Attica had
won the game. Nobody paid any attention
to the ball, they just saw Flash go down.
Attica won the championship but Jarvis wo11

the scoring trophy, topping Flash by three
points. He was given credit for the winning
basket because he was the last one to touch
it before it went through the hoop, even
though it scored against his own team and he
didn't shoot it. I don't think he got much
satisfaction from that cup. Frothingham
refused to present it to him publiclyf,
"Neff said the stranger, speaking for the
first time since the story began. 'GI shouldn't
think he would."
The other man looked at his watch.
"Whe-w-w-W. Nine-thirty. My wife must be
about ready to go home. I know I am, so
I'll say good-night. Hope I havenft bored
you." With a jaunty wave of his hand which
belied his satisfaction of a story well told, he
left the room.
The big man stood silently for a moment,
staring at the shiny cup. Then he looked
at his hands. The middle finger of the right
hand was bent and stiff, the result of a break
many years before.
A week later, Fred Burns, Attorney at Law,
received at his office a well-wrapped package.
Inside was a small, slightly tarnished silver
cup. It was inscribed.

A burst of chords of harmonizing tones-
And Guy has started. Then, precise and clear
Well-rounded notes of trumpets reach the ear,
And soft, beneath the melody there moans
The low and mellow croon of saxophones.
In pauses at the ends of strains we hear
The piano's tinkling trillsg and from the rear
The low and lazy humming fiddle drones.
The whole is such a perfect strain of notes
I wonder how some people can refuse
To hear, or hearing, do not comprehend
The beauty of the tune which smoothly floats
Out to the eager listening throng who lose
Themselves, immersed in musicfs rhythmic
THE ADVOCATE L191
Barbara Blake, '35
Janie Wilson ran a tanned hand through her
mop of dark curls as she surveyed the contents
of an article in one of the latest magazines,
entitled uWhat Is Creative Genius?7' Janie
was a most impulsive young lady, and the
gleam in her dark eyes might well have been
attributed to the growth of a sudden idea as
she read the following lines:
MA great composer of modern music says
that most of his finest selections are the result
of what he terms a 'sudden mental inspira-
tion., He relates that one morning while he
was at breakfast a tune suddenly came into
his mind, he left the table, wrote out his
composition, and sold it the following day
for a fabulous pricef'
Janie was the youngest daughter of a mu-
sical family. Her mother was a fine pianist,
her father had a well trained baritone voice,
her sister was studying violin at the Conserv-
atory, and even her brother, Kenneth, played
the saxophone Qmuch to the distress of his
motherj. Janie had no such talents. It is
true she could strum the uuken, and "tickle
the ivoriesn a little. She had, however, one
peculiar accomplishment. She always had
some song at the tip of her tongue. f'The
right song for the right occasion can work
wondersf' was Janie's motto. For instance,
last summer at the lake, countless evenings
spent in watching the moon rise over old
ulfllephantls Headl' with Jack, or Harry, or
even Bill, had been converted into more than
just the usual routine of watching the moon
rise, by Janiels softly hummed strain, such
as "When the Moon Comes Over the Moun-
tain." The night that she and Harry had
paddled their canoe right up the silver path
to the moon, she had unconsciously sung
Mlsnat It Romantic?,' Evidently Harry
thought it was for the next instant they had
both been wildly clutching the sides of the
canoe, while between fits of laughter Janie
had sung out at the top of her lungs, MSingin'
in the Bathtub."
All of this goes to show that Janie was
a most unusual and impulsive girl. Now as
she heard the gong for dinner, she raised her
lithe body from the chair, letting the magazine
fall to the floor, and merrily whistling the
popular song hit "Please,'7 she dashed to the
dining room. Janie always dashed every-
where, and she whistled only because she
intended to ask Dad for an increase in
uDad,l' she said as she unfolded her nap-
kin, "how's chances of getting exactly two
dollars and eighty-live cents extra this week?,'
'fAnd why the sudden need for two dollars
and eighty-five cents?" demanded her father.
"A dress," explained Janie.
L'Nothing doingll' bellowed her father, and
that was that.
Had Janie been anywhere but at the table
she would have burst out with "Am l Bluef'
but one simply cannot sing at the table, so
she only glared furiously at Kenneth.
Immediately after dinner she dashed up to
uluisten, Ken, live simply got to have that
dress. she declared breathlessly.
uWhat7s it to me?'7 asked Ken heartlessly.
"Just this. l have an idea for getting the
money and a little respect from my most
musical family if you'll help mein Then
she told him about the article about '4Creative
Genius." Meanwhile Ken displayed pro-

found indifference. "Now you know that I
have countless songs in my head, and why
canit I have a sudden inspiration as well as
that man in the article? If youill help me

about her. Or we can halve the spoilsf, she
G'Sure, Illl help you write your song when

The next morning at precisely ten minutes
past five Kenneth raised himself sleepily up
on his elbow at the sound of ,lanie's apologetic
voice at his door.
'4Are you asleep, Kenny? Iam terribly
sorry but I have something important to tell
Kenneth, prepared for a fire or a sudden
death, jumped quickly to the door.
"I've had my inspirationln Ja n i e
Between them they finally finished writing
the tune down. Kenneth had a rather unholy
twinkle in his eye, but Janie was too rapt
up in her uinspirationw to notice.
At eleven o'clock she dashed out of the
house toward the Goldberg Music Company,
humming merrily HHappy Days Are Here
Again,'7 and carrying her precious Minspira-
tionw under her arm. When she arrived at
the music store she asked for an interview
with Mr. Goldberg and sat down beside a
radio to wait. The announcer was announc-
ing that the next number was to be the newest
song-hit, L'Maybe I Made a Mistakef'
The orchestra played the opening bars of
a haunting melody, and Janie suddenly sat
erect, for her own song, that song she had
thought to be an inspiration, came to her
shocked ears. For a moment she felt as
though she might cry as she saw both the
lovely dress and her self-esteem float off into
space. Then she rose abruptly and walked
out of the store humming sadly, "Maybe I
Made a Mistake."

.IOYS OF A FINGER WAVE
Marjorie Lunsford, 733
A gala occasion exciting eager anticipa-
tion, an overwhelming desire to look oneis
very best upon said occasion, a ways and
means consultation with onels weekly allow-
ance to discover what drastic measures will
be necessary under present circumstances, net
result-an excursion to the nearest beauty
parlor-Hwhere Sue got her permanent, you
knowl' - for a general refurnishing of
Womanls crowning glory.
Oh, yes, a frenzied hunt through the
telephone book, and our young heroine makes
her appointment for Thursday afternoon,
three-thirty sharp. Always punctual, she
arrives at her Mecca on the dot, and is assured
by a smiling hairdresser, "Not more than two
minutesfi Grabbing the nearest magazine,
'clfilm I7un,', she resignedly waits, critically
observing the prograss of various embryo
waves, as she scans the doings of the "stars"
After the two minutes have graduated to
eighteen or twenty, she is informed by the
still-smiling hair-dresser that all is in readi-
ness for the operation. A
First she is led to a low chair where her
neck is twisted out of shape and her head

thrown back while her hair is thoroughly
shampooed. Then, dripping, she goes to the
"wave-settingl' chair where after slapping
thick, gooey wave-set on our heroineis tresses,
the hair-dresser skillfully manipulates the
aforementioned tresses and creates an astound-
ingly symmetrical wave, tending, almost, to
affect everyone with mal de mer. Since the
back, after a careful survey of -its possibilities,
has been declared long enough, it is twisted
into countless curls, and the tip ends down
by the nape of the neck are done up on cute
little aluminum curlers. These Hcuten curlers
are almost unbearably tight, and pull very
inconsideratelyfbut what price beauty!
After a hair net has been carefully
adjusted, the heroine is taken to chair number
three where she basks in the heat of an
electric 'fwhoosizw during the interminable
period of drying. Again she reads of the
secret passions of Greta Garbo, and the sweet
ultominessv of Alice White. By the time the
wave is dry, she has memorized the contents
of each of the dozen magazines. She now
return to the other chair and, the finishing
touches having been administered, she is
allowed to leave, stretching cramped limbs,
but rejoicing in the loss of the Mcutew curlers
and the heat.
Since her hair must not be touched before
the next day, what a night she spends! Hair
pinsl hairpins stick in everywhere, and the
mess of curls at the back furnishes an imme-
diate headache if lain upon. What agonies
are endured in trying to refrain from muss-
ing a single hair! After this comforting rest
comes the dawn and a chance to do a little
in the combing-out process. Gingerly grasp-
ing the comb, she pokes and pushes here,
there, and everywhere, and following horrible
moments of suspense, emerges in a stunning
coiffure. All is blissful during this first day,
and many are the admiring compliments
bestowed. Alas, could this rapture but re-
main! Next day peculiar kinks appear and
it is an impossibility to replace refractory
hairs. From then on matters go steadily
from bad to Worse, and for at least a week
her hair resembles that of a shorn lamb, with
nothing but ragged ends.
Already there is talk of a second trip to
the beauty parlor, the agonies of its predeces-
sors completely forgotten l
SCARVES AND FACES
Eleanor Caldwell, '33
A pert little scarf frames a piquant face
And adds to its charm a flattering grace,
A face that shows no sign of cares,
But only a life of ease declares.
A dark woolen muffler thatis made for wear
Half covers a face deep-lined with care,
A rugged face, so kind, so true-

Marcia slowly rose, with what she fondly
hoped was a dramatic air. ulim sorry,
Tommy, awfully sorry, but you know I'd
never planned to marry young, and since Mr.
Dexter has been so encouraging, I have de-
cided that l should think of the public, and

Marcia smiled, and thought to herself that
he wouldn't go until she wanted him to.
Aloud she murmured, sadly, HlVlaybe weid
better say good-bye now, then, Tommyf,

from the room to run squarely into lVIarcia's
younger sister, Sally, who apparently had
been listening to their conversation.

'4Well, I know a darned sight more than

I thought notfdon't interrupt again. The
second idea is to show up Mr. Dexter in
some way so that she would naturally turn
to you as an exact opposite. Make her real-
ize that she had no acting ability and she
might come to her senses. The only thing
to do is make her realize that sheis making a
fool of herself--and she certainly isf,
4'But how?" Tommy inquired.
"Wait, lim coming to that. I have a friend
who is very clever at impersonations. I'll
get her to take the part of a very countrified
girl whom Mr. Dexter had promised to put
on the stage if she ever came to New York.
She will act so dumb and so awkward and
rave so much about her career and her dra-
matic ability, as extolled by Mr. Dexter, that
Marcia will realize that Mr. Dexter is prob-
ably only laughing at her. Then she may
come to her sensesf'
"Aw, razzleberriesll' cut in Tommy, ullm

Sally grinned mockingly.
'gWell, go ahead then. When will I be
able to see Marcia again to have her fall on

buried himself in work to keep away from

he dashed for Marcia's but on the way he
thought, "Gosh, it is awfully sweet of Sally
to do this. Really I ought to do something
for her. Maybe I'll introduce her to Don,
he ought to like her. Great guns hereis the
house! Whatlll I say?" He entered the hall
and again ran into Sally, a regular collision,
which shook them both up. He threw an arm
around her to steady her and suddenly
looked at her. She tried to hide her face,
but not before held seen she'd been crying.

THE ASCEINT OF MADISON
Royal A bbott, ,33
Slowly upward, through the misting
That the dawn paints on the pasture,
Wfhere the trail begins its climbing,
Moved light-hearted Bawc through the
Fir trees and the grasses, through the
Balsam breeze that longs to linger,
Till at length the fields departed,
And he climbed among the foot-hills
Past the white and curly birches,
Past the poplar to the hemlock.
The trail took on a footed faintness,
Wound in tortured turns aslant.
Once a lizard left his hiding,
Fatly scuttled through the humus,
Creeping into all the crannies,
Crawling into every crevice,
Searching slugs among the rotted
Wood that yielded to his burrowing.
Under foot the way grew spongyg
Virgin forest coldly holy,
Loveliest bride of nature,
Drew him into quiet beauty:
Moss and lichen covered wholly
Massive tree-trunks, lying tangled
With the moss encrusted forest,
Glistening faintly, crystal water
Dripped from every tree about him,
Dripping chilly, smoothed the granite,
Stood out on the moss around him,
Moss-deep murmured down the pathway
Climbing straightway from' the temple
Dian consecrated to the dawn.
Thus he left the vaprous forest,
Coming finally to the stunted
Fir trees twisted into tangles
Knit by mad winds coaxing snow storms.
Far above, beyond his vision,
Eerie, lonely, shrilled a bird call,
Only living sound to mar the
Silence of the piled turrets.
Bawc knew not what to call him
Called him only Mountain Bird,
Wildest singer, dismal piper,
Never heard below the timber.
Then the conic summit, falsely
Near across the builded boulders,
Rudely rose to bar the way, yet
Slowly yielded to elation
Rising as the top loomed nearer.
Rawc paused upon the summit
Polished by the wind-born rain,
Balanced against the gale a moment,
Then, with nightfall rising up the slopes,

the four boys who climbed the mountain and
is formed from their initials.

LITTLE THINGS I PRIZE
J. Roberts, '33
I know that there are a great many people
besides myself who have in some protected
spot a collection of seemingly worthless
trinkets fsome call them souvenirsl that are
prized highly. They are entirely without
value to everyone except the owner. Their
monetary value cannot be measured, for they
are priceless. These trinkets may be such
insignificant appearing things as a broken
comb, a splinter of wood, or a snapshot. One
could go on for hours enumerating possibili-
ties and never reach their limit. I went into
my collection today and I will try to show
you what took place.
I found an old knife, one of my own. It
is priceless to me. Knife and I have been
through a good deal together. This knife,
old, rusty and broken as it seems, is alive
with memories bright and cheery. It speaks
to me of hikes in the autumn sun, of bright
sunny days whittling on the log by the old
swimming hole. That leads me to the pleas-
ant memories of the fun I had swimming
with the fellows. It is a reminder of one day
in particular, a summer afternoon on the
river. The banks were green and the trees
in this particular spot were leaning out over
the wateris edge with an infinite grace that
nature alone is queen of. The warm browns,
dull grays, and greens of the wood mingled
with the dancing rays of sun, the white splash
of breaking water, and the smooth covering
of warm blue of the sky, all combined to
form the most- nearly perfect picture that the
soul could cry for. This and many other
associations endear this old companion to me.
In another corner of the box I picked up an
empty 22 caliber shell. This immediately
brought to my mind the picture of a winterfs
day when I was snowbound in a small village
in the country. The beauty of the trees and
foliage covered with snow, the driving wind
carrying the salt tang of the ocean to my
nostrils, the invigorating nature of it all,
transposed me for the moment into an early
pioneer fighting the fight of a conqueror. If
there is a spark of romance in you, you can
sense and live that moment with me and
experience the quick course of blood through
your veins that accompanies the mere thought
of the hardy woodsman native to our
Next I found not a valuable necklace or a
S100 bill but a snapshot of one of my pals-
a pal in the real sense of the word, a fellow
who is loyal to the last, one who accom-
panies you as a friend and companion through
lifeis rocky road and shares your sorrows
and joysg the pal you go to when you are
blue and broken-spirited. Fellows, this is
your dad and a regular fellow from the
bottom of his feet to the top of his head,
bent and grayed from care and worry over
his thankless son.
Finally, I found a piece of bridal wreath
pressed in a book. How clear was the
memory that this contained! It was the day
of my brotheris wedding and my martyrdom.
My brother was leaving home and I simply
couldn't live through it. I was neglected and
forgotten. It was a cruel, cruel world. Ah!
Woe was me. I would go through life and
bear my cross like a man in spite of all, I
decided. All this was written in the heart of
a faded flower. Priceless?

ghostly hands and figures, strange happen-

million in fact, wishes to pick his heirs be-
fore his decease. The cousins tCarroll Cobb,
Gilman Andrews, Phyllis and Homer Burr,
Walter Cookson, and Eleanor Caldwellj all
are considered candidates for the fortune.
One is to get this fortune by proving himself
braver than the others. The uncle, watching
behind the wall, picks two of them as the
bravest because they were willing to leave
and give up the fortune, rather than face the
terrors of the house. We appreciated Rich-
ard Coleman as the austere and dignified

Miss Fessenden's room surprised us this
year. We didnit know they had such musical
talent. For two years they have kept it a
secret, but this year they made up for it. A
boys, quartet, consisting of L. Grasso, E.
Gordon, D. Hall and F. Fisher sang two se-
lections, a girls, quartet, made up of R. Dal-
lachie, B. Eldridge, D. Gillis and B. Gilbert
sang two selections, and E. Gordonis orches-
tra played the latest dance music. Each
number was appropriately announced by the
master of ceremonies, Robert Dearing.

We really should be proud of all the musi-

how many of the programs have been musi-

room is a good example. Leo Ryan's or-
chestra played and sang a varied selection of
popular songs, which set many feet to tap-
ping. Thatis a good sign, you know, that
the music is being enjoyed.
We were agreeably surprised one Monday
morning to see before us our old friend, Miss
Hildegarde Berthold. She told us that while
she likes Quincy, Needham was her first love.
She played a few selections on her icello.
Miss Berthold then introduced us to Miss
Maud Howes, who is with her at the Quincy
schools. After breaking the ice by telling us
that she hoped we wouldnit mind the fact that
she had burst the seam of her right sleeve,
she proceeded- to give us a very interesting
talk on the essentials of good music, illus-
trating with snatches on the piano. Mr. Pol-
lard sang, and received words of praise from
Miss Berthold and well merited applause
from the audience. We hope that Miss
Berthold will be able to come to us again,
and that she will bring Miss Howes with

Miss Marjorie Butler opened the program
for Room 101 by a few vocal and piano
selections. William H. Dimick from the
Massachusetts Nautical School talked to us
about the life and training aboard the
Schoolship Nantucket. This training pre-
pares young men for positions in the United
States Merchant Marine. Mr. Dimick illus-
trated his talk with slides. The slides were
pictures of the Nantucket and different ports
touched on her annual training cruise. His
talk caused some of us to seriously consider
the possibilities of a sea-faring career.
Room 103 presented its program in a most
unique way by broadcasting it over the radio.
We were much surprised to hear this state-
ment issuing from the radio: 'fThis is the
voice of the junior Class, speaking from the
lower regions to which the Juniors are con-

and a boyis quartet made up of R. Glynn, L.
D,Addesio, R. Drinkwater, and Marquis
Graham. A very clever readingwas given
by Anne Genevieve. Last but not least Russell
Greenhood played a few most delightful
selections on the piano.
The program of Room 105 was begun by
the singing of a few popular pieces by Martha
Kimball, Betty Holbrook and Elizabeth John-
son, accompanied by Elizabeth Moffet. A
violin solo by Evelyn Martin was given next.
The remainder of the program was furnished
by P. D. Packard and his lmperial
The program of Room 107 was devoted to
Lincoln. Readings from Lincolnis speeches,
anecdotes, and related poems were given by
P. Packard, C. O'Neil, A. Owens, and Isabel
Rector. The singing of negro spirituals by
Mr. Pollard completed the program.
On March 6, the assembly program was in

Boys, Glee Club sang two selections. The
next number was a Russian Folk Play
entitled 'fThe Snow Witchf, The more
important characters were play by Mary

The last sophomore home room certainly
ended up the year in a fine manner. The
program of Room 313 consisted of tap danc-

quis Graham, and a very amusing play,
4'Trying Them Outf' Semple received an
enthusiastic encore and the play was thor-
oughly enjoyed by all.
Following these programs came a very
interesting utalkien on Hershey, Pennsyl-
vania. We certainly learned a great deal
about the processes through which the
Hershey products go. The motion pictures
also showed the grounds around the huge
factory and we learned something of the
social life of the city.
One of those dismal, rainy mornings, every-
one who came to school was pleasantly
rewarded. Our old friend, Mr. Cameron
Beck, a real friend to all children, spoke to
us. The auditorium was packed, for we had
as our guests the ninth grade and also many
prominent business men and women of our
town. His talks are always interesting, first
because they are, for the most part, made up
of his personal experiences with boys and
girls, and secondly, because he has an un-
usual but most pleasing manner of talking.
Each of his illustrations emphasized the need
for everyone of us to improve his or her
character, and above all to be honest. When
Mr. Beck was through with his inspiring talk,
we all gave him a good rousing cheer, and we
are sure he appreciated it. Donlt forget his
famous message to you, MWhat you are to be,
you are now becomingf,
Remember Donald Bain? Yes, he was the
chief performer one Monday morning. What
did he do? Well, it's impossible to tell
everything that he does, but, in brief, he
imitates all kinds of wild animals and birds,
in fact, almost any kind of noise. Most of
you probably remember best his imitation of
a rooster crowing. Mr. Bain has been
employed by radio stations and also in talk-
ing pictures because of his unusual ability
to give these realistic imitations. Did you all
go on uThe Trip to the Farmw with him?
A special assembly was held March 27 ir
the organization period. The speaker was
Mr. Harold M. Smith, Dean of the Borden-
town Military Institute. He spoke to us on
the very unusual subject, HSplit Seconds and
Lucky Breaksfi We were somewhat mysti-
hed as to what this title could mean, but we
were enlightened immediately. Mr. Smith
showed us the fallacy in the popular belief
in uLucky Breaks," citing many instances
where quick thinking in a split second of
time has saved the day for the people con-
cerned. One of the most interesting stories
was that of the boy who worked in a paper
mill. His coat sleeve having caught in the
rolls, in the instant of time left to hin1, he
stretched himself out and allowed himself to
be drawn through the rolls. While this wan
attributed to luck, Mr. Smith demonstrated to
us that the boyis life was saved by this quick
thinking. We liked his talk and his jovial
manner of delivering it.

national, and international. Competitions
were held for a team to represent the school
in the North Attleboro debate. This debate
was held in North Attleboro, Saturday even-
ing, April 8. The subject wasflfiesolved:
That the United States should cancel all inter-
allied war debts. Needham upheld the nega-
tive. The members of the team were Louis
Gilbert, Edgar Butters, William Landsberg,

THE LIBRARY CLUB
No doubt most of you know that a new
club, the Library Club, was formed about the
last of February. Well, we have been search-
ing around and have found out these facts.
There are eight members with Miss Steele
Jessie Stewart, president, Hazel Hampton,
vice-president, Ida Bailey, Elizabeth Bejoin,
Marjorie Spicer, Phyllis Lacoste, Irene
Knowles, Dorothy Acheson.
We were told that the purpose of the club
is to further the interest of those pupils
interested in library work as a vocation and to
be of help to pupils in school. Right now
these members are being a great help by tak-
ing charge of the library during school hours
and before and after school, thus relieving the
teachers of that duty.
Thus far there have bee11 nine meetings.
One week Mrs. McQuarrie talked to them on
reference books, and another week there was
a talk by Arthur Birkett, 727. Miss Steele
and Jessie Stewart attended a social meeting
of several high school library clubs around
Boston at Brookline. Right now the girls are
working on a bulletin board project. Each
girl collects pictures and clippings relating
to a special topic which she may select herself
and mayrput them on the bulletin board in
artistic arrangement at the appropriate time.

of ueavesdroppingf' don,t you?
CONCERT BY THE MUSICAL
After a rather long process of tuning up,
the concert of the musical organizations of
N H. S. finally got under way on Friday
night, May 5th, with selections from "Robin
Hoodw by the Orchestra. The Choral Group,
composed of the Boys, and Girls' Clubs, sang
three songs. "Love7s Old Sweet Songw was
particularly appreciated. Then two selec-
tions were played by an instrumental trio
composed of Miss Silsby at the piano, Miss
Pollard playing the lcello, and Miss Blake
the violin. Next, four songs were sung by
our visiting tenor, Mr. Rulon Robison, he
explained each song to us for those who did
not know the languages in which they were
sung. These were followed by two well-played
orchestra selections, and these by three songs
by the Girls' Glee Club. uThe Canoe Songn
pleased the audience greatly. Then Miss
Eunice Whitakerjs agile lingers glided over
the pianoforte to give us two very cleverly
executed solos. The MConcert Etude" was
especially well received. The Boys' Glee
Club sang three songs. Four tenor solos by
Mr. Robison followed. We were much
amused by the humorous words of the old
English song, Hvlliddicombe Fair." The pro-
gram closed with a chorus "The Call To
Duty" by the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs
and the orchestra.
I64-j THE ADVOCATE
You had a good time at the Senior Prom,
didnit you? Yes, great,-thatis what we
heard everyone saying, so we know that the
last dance of the Seniors was a success. The
decorations-well, were unusual. When you
looked at the ceiling you felt cold, because it
was a mass of icicles, but when you looked
around at the walls you felt warmer from the
heat of the golden suns with their colored
rays. Then there were Christmas trees to fill
in the bare spaces. Of course the music and
refreshments were good, because the former
was furnished by P. D. Packard and his or-
chestra, and the latter by Cushman,s.
The Juniors, social affair was a great suc-
cess, but then we expected it to be, from
previous experience. And, as last year, they
surprised us with unusual decorations. The
gym was done in red and white for Valen-
tine's day with adorable gold Cupids on the
wall. It wasn't long before they disappeared,
however. The ceiling was a tempting collec-
tion of nice, big balloons of all shapes and
sizes. Again the music was furnished by
P. D. Packard and his Imperial Troubadours.
They are always enjoyed, and this was no
SOPHOMORE - ALUMNI DANCE
The Sophomores certainly started off with
a bang with their first social affair. On all
sides we heard only favorable comments-
especially of the decorations. The whole
effect was very springlike, with colored water-
ing pots fastened on each light, pastel-colored
streamers, balloons, and a lovely rainbow.
Oh, yes, it had a pot of gold! The chaperons
were well protected from the elements by a
green and white striped awning. Packardis
Imperial Troubadours, dressed in their white
Ilannels and blue coats, added to the spring
atmosphere. The Sophomore class ought to
be congratulated on their originality. Hereis
hoping they will keep it up.

Neezllzam High School Advocate
I canit remember if the class of '26 was
one of great distinction or not. As far as
that goesfwho cares. They are too young
to be old grads and too old to be but vaguely
known by the present High School genera-
tion. Our breaks on the whole have been
bad. Those of us wl1o went on to a rosy
future via the various colleges found our-
selves dumped this last June, not into the lap
of luxury, but into the much more bony lap
of the Depression. Already we are begin-
ning to date as the Depression Generation.
As a result most of us are not doing what
we want--some of us not even doing. Those
of us that can are lying low in academic
sanctuaries. Some of us are selling things
nobody wants. Some of us are being pillars
of strength and idleness in our ancestral
homes. One lad at the top of the scale is
'itravelling in Europef' Further down we

making considerable money in comparison
to the other two, we come upon him who de-
livers for a bootlegger. He is the only solid
success, but the Democratic regime is giving
him the diurnal willies.
What it all adds up to, I certainly don't
know. The only way we can be models to
you and you of the class of '33 is by our
ability to hang on and go on a perpetual hunt
for the breaks. Incidentally I am sure we
would all take it very kindly if you people
would do your best to go on to college. It
is not only the best thing for you, but also
we might be able to grab a couple of the jobs
you would have gotten this Spring. But
enough of that. Most of those bearded peo-
ple you saw at the Turkey Day Classic were

light Needham eleven dazzle the burly brutes

1721 THE ADVOCATE
A group of high schools, consisting of
Framingham, Quincy, B. C. High, Wellesley,
Watertown, and Waltham invited Needham
to join a league which they were forming.
Our faculty advisors, after looking the situa-
tion over carefully, decided it would be an
excellent idea, and so accepted the invitation.
It was later decided that this league would
be called the Bay State league.
Mr. Small, our former basketball coach,
exchanged places with Mr. Claxton, our for-
mer hockey coach.
The school spirit was right in the boys this
year. Our team placed fifth, after a success-
ful season in the Bay State league.
This league was so successful in drawing a
crowd that it is evident we shall see the boys
playing in the arena again next season.
At a meeting of the letter men at the close
of the past season, 661111177 Mullan, popular
forward on this year's team, was unanimously
elected Captain for 1933-1934.
Framingham 2--Needham 1.
We lost our first game of the season to
Framingham in the Arena. It was a fast,
exciting game, and although a little in need
of practice, the team, against such odds, did
a good job. Our Ollly goal was made nicely
by Cole unassisted. This was our first game
played in the Arena and it seemed to be a
favorable beginning for the season.

under the circumstances, but, as we were mi-
nus a few of our best players, the game came
to a sad end.

Our absentees of last game were back
with the good old school spirit. About the
middle of the game Gordon made our only
goal unassisted. The boys were slowly but
surely getting acquainted with the Arena.
Our strong defenders, Dearing, Ryan, and
Waitkunas, looked very promising in this
game. The idea of making a league and play-
ing in the Arena surely turned out to be a
good one. Each week we were having a
larger and more enthusiastic audience.
Wellesley l-Needham 1
Once again we met our worthy rival
Wellesley. Of all the games the boys really
wanted badly, this was the game. Both teams
fought unsparingly. Mullan and Burr took
some pretty shots that did look close, but not

Watertown seemed to have about the salne
class of team as our own. The first forward
line, consisting of Burr, Cole, and Mullan,
cooperated very well, but in vain. The de-
fenders of both Watertown and Needham
worked to perfection. The Needham defend-
ers were Dearing, Ryan, and Waitkunas in the

This game was one of the fastest of the
games this yea1'. Both Needham and Wal-
pole scored one goal in the first period. The
first goal was made by Mullan unassisted.
In the second period Walpole took a very
good shot at the goal and made it. ln the
last part of the third period the hero of
the day, Mullan, made a goal by scrimmage.
Needham 3aWaltham 1
The last game of the season ended nicely
for Needham. At the first part of the game
Cole shot the puck to Cordon, who took a
shot and made our first goal. About the mid-
dle of the game Dearing, who was playing
9. nice hard-fighting game, shot the puck to
lVlullan, who made the goal. At the last part
of the game Gordon made a nice goal unas-
sisted. Waitkunas, our smiling goalie, did

year as an authorized sport under the direc-

After much delay on account of rainy
weather, we were finally able to obtain a few
days' practice before our first baseball game
of the season with Holliston.
The game was played on our home ground
and was pitched by 'flioyw Wiggin, who lim-
ited the opposing batters to two hits. Our
own boys collected eleven hits, the feature
being a home run by our veteran hurler, Mc-
Again at Wellesley our boys put up a splen-
did battle but were nosed out by a 2 to l
score. McLaughlin pitched and held Welles-
ley to two hits.
With Tracy and Wiggin dividing the pitch-
ing for Needham, Walpole handed our boys
the short end of a 7 to 4 score. Eight Need-
ham errors in the first five innings accounted
for all of Walpolefs runs. Makarovich turned
in a fine piece of helding by making a beauti-
ful running catch in left field late in the
At Braintree the boys were defeated by a
score of 9 to 1. Again a string of eight errors
contributed to their downfall. Once more
Makarovich proved to be the star, collecting
two hits and making a fine running catch in
Our second victory came by defeating Wel-
lesley 144 to 12, in a game marred by errors
on both teams. Needham took the lead in the
opening inning by scoring one run, and Wel-
lesley made it 41 to 1 in the third and fourth,
but in the last of the fourth, aided by Wel-
lesley's errors, our boys got a 6 to 4 lead
and picked up three more runs in the fifth
and sixth. In the seventh Wellesley threw the
ball in every place but the right place, while
our score mounted to 14 to 6. In the eighth
Wellesley ended the score by adding six more
Our hrst encounter with Natick this year
was somewhat one-sided until the sixth in-
ning. At that point the score was 10 to 0 in
favor of Natick. However, the hreworks be-
gan when D'Addessio smashed a homer with
the bases loaded. In the eighth inning Maka-
rovich also slammed out a circuit clout into
the center field bleachers. Four more runs
were made in the ninth, just one short of
lying the score. When the final out of the
game was made, we had the tying run on
third base, but were unable to bring the run-
At Walpole we were again defeated by a
score of 7 to 5. The contest was close from
start to hnish and it was anyone's game until
thc final inning. Five passes, four of which
later became runs, were the chief reason for
ln a game that went for twelve innings Na-
tick handed us the short end of a 7 to 3
score. Natick started her scoring in the first
inning when four errors were committed by
our boys. From then on until the twelfth in-
ning batick was held scoreless. Hanson was
the star of the game, collecting three hits
and scoring two of the three Needham 1'l1IlS.
ln the twelfth, Natick scored four runs after
collecting four hits, two of which took bad
bounces over our fielder's heads.
Four games remain to be played and it
seems that the team should be ready to come

The track team opened the season with a
meet against a strong Waltham team on April
28 at Waltham. Their team, undefeated for
two years, defeated Needham 48 to 24. Our
only first was won by Raleigh Glynn who,
being nosed out by Blekatis of Waltham in
the hundred, beat the latter in the 220. UAF,
Lansberg finished about a foot behind Goode
of Waltham in the quarter. Fantegrossi and
Gilbert in the 880, Ryan in the broad jump,
and Packard in the shot put furnished our
other seconds. Ryan also tied for second in
the high jump. There was no pole vault in
On May 12 at Memorial Park, the Walpole
track team edged out Needham, 42-39. "Jim-
my" Ryan furnished 12 points, winning first
places in the high and broad jumps and third
in the 220 and the shot put. Raleigh Glynn
made our only other first in the hundred.
Seconds were won by Glynn in the 220 and
broad jump, Lansberg in the 440, and Pack-
ard in the shot put. Gilbert of Needham and
Holbrook of Waltham in the 880, Hall,
Buckley, and Cole, of Needham and Libbey
of Waltham in the high jump, and Slack and
Beale in the pole vault tied for seconds.
On May 16, Needham defeated Dedham
42 2X3 to 27 1X3 at Memorial Park. We lost
only two of the eight events, there being no
mile. Our firsts were won by Glynn in the
hundred, Abbott in the quarter, Lansberg in
the 880, and Ryan in the broad jump. Cole
and Buckley tied for first in the high jump,
and Slack and Dodd tied in the pole vault.
Lore of Dedham won the 220 and Twiner of
Dedham won the shot put.
On May 20, six members of the Needham
track team journeyed to the Harvard Inter-
scholastics. The following made the trip:
Glynn, 100, Ryan, broad jump, Lansberg,
4403 Fantegrossi and Gilbert, 880, and Cole,
high jump. Against the stiffest competition,
they did very creditable work, Competing in
Class f'G',, Needham rolled up six points.
Great credit should be given to Glynn who
won the 100, defeating Mulliken of Welles-
leyg and also to Ryan, who placed fifth in
the broad jump.
In a meet characterized by extremely close
races from start to finish, Belmont was not
decided victor until the final 220 yard run.
The two arch rivals, 4'Rolly', Glynn of
Needham and Mullikan of Wellesley, again
met in the 100 yard dash. Mullikan broke
the tape just a fraction of a second before
HRolly" to win the closest race of the meet.
In the mile, Maddocks of Belmont over-
shadowed the rest of the field. He ran the
race in four minutes and forty-five seconds
which is exceptionally good time for a high
McCauley of Framingham, towering above
all of his opponents, captured the broad
jump with a leap of twenty-one feet and one-
eighth inch. Our own 'flimmiei' Ryan who
placed second in the event, seemed to be a
midget standing by the side of this boy,
The surprise of the afternoon was f'Bob,'
Slack's triumph in the pole vault. Two
Fairhaven boys who were favored to win this
event were unable to clear the bar at ten
feet three inches.
Needham, which already has two legs on
the cup, would have had a very good chalice
of winning it, had it not been for the absence
of two of the best men on the team. As it
was, Needham was beaten by 3V3 points.

Any girl who wishes may sign up for this

one chance to play on the club courts.
Carroll Cobb, the varsity captain, Jean Fores-

that are left of last yearis team. However,
there appears to be some good material in
school and so we have hopes for a somewhat
successful season. We hope to have matches

Every girl who has been in the club this

received much useful training.
Surprise! A group of girls were invited
to the Brookline pool to a Swimming Play
Day. There were girls from Newton, Welles-

tion was not between schools but between
mixed teams. However, jo Starkweather tied

Although the girls' basketball season was
exceptionally short this year, the games were
snappy and well worth watching. On the

GIRLS' GYM MEET
Hooray! The Seniors won the Girls' Gym
Meet. A new plan was adopted this year, as
several of the members of the Leaders, Club
were in charge of the various groups.
First, as usual, there was the opening
March in which all the girls participated.
You do not realize how many girls there are
in the school until you see them all together.
Next came the Junior and Senior gymnastics
under the leadership of Clare Sturtevant.
After this came a tap dance, an Irish jig in
which little white aprons and green bows
added to the costumes. The Sophomores
then did a physical education clog-a clever
way of doing exercises, don't you think?
Next several girls did a more complicated
tap dance, to the tune of "The Girl in the
Little Green Hatn, only they Wore red hats
and jackets because they harmonized better
.with the ff 'ni suits. The marching came next
U C 7
first Sophomores, then Juniors, and finally
Seniors, under the direction of Betty Church,
Stella Roklan, and Carroll Cobb, respectively.
The Leaders' Club then did some exhibition
marching under the direction of Miss Rowe,
and she certainly kept them on their toes.
Next came the apparatus, the ropes, box,
rings, high jump, swing jump, and parallel
bars. Then came the folk dances, which are
always fun to watch. First there was a Swiss
Mountaineers' dance and then a pirates'
dance. The costumes in these dances were
cute and added much to their appeal to the
audience. The tumbling came next. This
is one of the most popular exhibitions, as
everyone enjoys watching the clowns perform.
Irma Toone still keeps her place and can do
a 'forward roll over more people than can
anyone else. Finally, the relays were run off,
amidst much noise and excitement. While
the judges made out their scores, there was a
fast basket ball game between the Junior and
Senior teams. At length the following score
was announced and greeted with loud cheers:
the Seniors 85.3, Sophomores 84.6, Juniors
