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- selves." 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 riala 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 ! Betty Rosenkrans, 734 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 every class! Seniors! Juniors! Sophomores! What you are to he you are now becoming. f8j THE ADVOCATE 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 field. 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 without hearty We may live without friendsg we may live without booksg 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 but deceiving? He may live without love-what is passion but pining? But where is the man that can live without dining?" -OWEN MEREDITH. 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 ADVOCATE L9j XX X C4 'x iv I T X M xxx fx r 'N , N L. f , I - 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 into Wistfulness. 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 of creation. 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 t 1 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. RADIOS 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 beside it. 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. THE ADVOCATE flll SWEET REVENGE Betty Griffin, 735 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 dead silence. '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 herself. 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' uWell for pity sakes! Whatis the matterfw cried a young girl's surprised voice. "Er-Oh! Hello, Jane, come on up. I've been thinking." "Don't strain yourselfli' flippantly cried Jane Walsh, Judyis best friend and 'gpartner in crimefa MNOW listen, Janef' said Judy, Myou've got to help me get revenge on Hannah. This is my plan." 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 V L l :- 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 directions. 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- cally. u0h! Judy,', shrieked Jane, '4didn't that pepper in our handkcrchiefs work marvel- ously?'7 'Sweet Revenge!" sighed Judy, wiping her streamin' eyes. A. funny expression crossed her face as her nose twitched convulsively. '4Oh-Oh-Oh! Jane, the pep-pep-pep-perl Katchoolw SN OWFALL Phyllis Brown, '33 The earth needs a new dress. Her last week's white one is tattered and torn, Splashed with mud and trampled. Tomorrow morning she will awake Clothed anew in glittering white. RAIN Virginia Sanborn, '35 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, hat, galoshes, and umbrella, only to be soaked to the bone, heas welcome to it. But personally, I think such people should be consigned to an institution 'for the feeble- minded. Then, there are those who will say that rain is a necessity, they are right, it prob- ably is. But as soon as the depression is over, and I'm rich again, I'm going to buy a huge mansion in the Sahara Desert, and for- get there ever was such a thing as rain.

THE ADVOCATE f13l LOST MANUSCRIPT Elinor Bowker, '35 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 sheik. 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 quicklv 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 heart. 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 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 MBUDDYH Anna Curtin, 733 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 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 college or a daughter showing her mother the home economics department at that very moment. He seemed lost in thought, gazing at the newly-polished cup. It seemed to be the most highly prized trophy in the room. It bore the inscription:- GREEN VALLEY BASKETBALL LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP CUP Awarded to ATTICA HIGH SCHOOL 1910 Presented by JOHN A. FROTHINGHAM Another man entered the room. He was about the same age, but tall and heavily l16j THE ADVOCATE 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 community. 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 said:- "Quite a story behind the winning of this cup." '4That so?" said the stranger, stepping up to view it more closely. 'LThere7s a moral to it, too. I used to tell it to my boy when he was in school." He paused, waiting for a sign of concern from the stranger. 4'Sounds II1lCl'CSllIlg,,, said the prospective audience, invitingly. f'Not very familiar here, are you?" he 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 athletic fund." 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' D D D7 C D U7 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 truth. "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 T181 THE ADVOCATE 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.

Even over the radio, we are in- formed that if we send one label from a one- quart can of a certain paint, the 'fOld Paint- erf, will send us "his attractive jig-saw puzzle in jig time." If conditions continue to go the way they are tending now, I have visions of Rem- brandts and Corots cut up into fascinating whirligigs and protruding toes, and even our beloved Senior pictures dissected and spread out upon card tables before distraught puzzle fiends. TO GUY LOMBARDO Clare Slurtevant, '33 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 blend. THE ADVOCATE L191 JANIE'S INSPIRATION 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 allowance. 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 Kennethis room. uluisten, Ken, live simply got to have that W 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- IZOJ THE ADVOCATE 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 write my song-after I get an inspiration, I'll hint very subtly to Eleanor that you're crazy about her. Or we can halve the spoilsf, she finished generously. G'Sure, Illl help you write your song when fand if you get an inspiration, but you keep out of my affairs. We'll divide the spoilsf' 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 youf' Kenneth, prepared for a fire or a sudden death, jumped quickly to the door. "I've had my inspirationln Ja n i e announced. 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." ONE THING CERTAIN Albert W.

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 THE ADVOCATE f2ll 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 FAIR EXCHANGE Phyllis Brown, '33 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 my careerf, g'W'ell, if thatfs the way you feel about it I guess we,re quits. You can't expect me to wait forever, you knowf, 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, c'Good-bye." Tommy whirled and stamped from the room to run squarely into lVIarcia's younger sister, Sally, who apparently had been listening to their conversation. 6'Well,7, exclaimed Sally, al suppose you'll l l'22j THE ADVOCATE be back tomorrow, you poor nut! No won- der Marcia prefers that Dexter idiot, he's never to be depended upon and is very ro- mantic, donlt you think?'7 Without giving him a chance to answer she continued. "Men are so foolish anyway. They expect a girl to be reasonable. If you really want Marcia, let me give you some advicef, HYou being an expert on affairs of the heart, I suppose," Tommy cut in, sarcasti- cally. '4Well, I know a darned sight more than you do, anywayf, retorted Sally. "Listen, here are two ideas-the first, the old jeal- ousy gag-H which probably wouldn't be so good. Marcia would dramatize it and enjoy being a broken-hearted heroine so much that sheid let the other girl have youf, 4'In that case,'7 interrupted Tommy, 'cshe can't love me anyway, if she did, sheld be jealousf' c'Did she ever say she loved you? No! 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 going home." HAII right then, so long, Tommyf' And Sally grinned mockingly. 'gWell, go ahead then. When will I be able to see Marcia again to have her fall on my neck?" asked Tommy, icily. HShe ought to be in about that stage next Mondayf, prophesied Sally. L'Come over thenf' MOK., but I don't think it will work. So long Sallyf' And Tommy was gone, slam- ming the door noisily. Sally sat down in a chair and said to her- self, uWhat a pity heis wasted on Marcia. Why should she want him anyway? Heis much more suited to mefoh well, here goes!" And she reached for the telephone. Tommy, on the way home thought HI hope it works, I hope it works," and tried to pic- ture her blond perfection, but somehow everytime it would be Sallyis saucy face he visualized. A week slowly dragged by while Tommy buried himself in work to keep away from the telephone. At last Monday arrived and 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. nSally," he said, surprised, uYou,ve been crying. Whatis the matter? i' 6'Nothing much,'7 she answered. 'LYou- y0u'd better go in to Marcia, she's in the other roomfj Sally started to move but found she couldn't. Tom1ny's arms were still around her. 'GMarcia be darnedi' said Tommy, sud- denly discovering that Sally had long lashes and very blue eyes. uSaIly, I-I-look at me, Sally! Sally, I'm going to kiss you." MNO, donitll' cried Sally, and looked at him. THE ADVOCATE f23J Several moments later she started guiltily and murmured against Tommyis shoulder, 'fWhat about Marcia?,, '40h, Marciaf, said Tommy, coming back to earth. 4'Yes, my experiment worked, she's all ready to fall on someoneis neck." 'fOh, Weill fix that,', remarked Tommy. "Let,s call up Don Gilbert and give Marcia a break. Sally, I never before have seen a girl who looked prettier with freckles than without, but you certainly do-in fact I never appreciated freckles until I met youf' MI donit believe it,,7 answered Sally, "but never mind, it sounds nice, and now letis put in that telephone call for Marcia and go celebrate?

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. 9 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, Descended. Note: The name of the climber stands for the four boys who climbed the mountain and is formed from their initials. The name Rawc should be pronounced in two syllables. X241 THE ADVOCATE 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 American soil. 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? A THOUGHT Phyllis Brown, 533 I lay on the warm dry sand and basked in the sun.

L60j THE ADVOCATE HOME ROOM PROGRAMS '6The Reading of the Willt' was the title of a play presented by room 201. Mr. Smallls room has kept up the tradition of presenting a ghost umellerdrammerw in this play. It proved itself worthy of the tradition, with ghostly hands and figures, strange happen- ings, and screams in the dark. lt seems that a very rich man 1Royal Abbott, worth six 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 lawyer, Howard Cole, as "Judson,', the but- ler, and Anne Alden as the good-natured cook. 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. 'GOh,' young Lochinvar came out of the West-.M Yes, there he was in person. Neal Jacobs made us all laugh at his outfit-com- plete to the kilties and plumed hat. His steed-a broom-A-was cause for laughter, as well as his antics, announced by Marjorie Lunsford. Janet Lewis, as the bride, in long bridal gown, was a fit companion to Lochin- var. The kinsmen, the brideis mother and father and the other characters, acted out their parts as directed by the reader. Thus, Lochinvar MStopped not for stone,', the jumped over onej, he Halightedi' thy means of a cigarette lighterj, the bride "blushed', fwith a little rougei, and so on, throughout the play. It kept the whole audience in gales of laughter. We really should be proud of all the musi- cal talent in our school. Have you noticed how many of the programs have been musi- cal?-and good ones too! Miss Steeleis 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 he1', too. THE ADVOCATE T611 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- finedf, This station broadcasts on a fre- quency of umpty-umph motorcycles by authority of the Skipperf, Louis Gilbert was master of ceremonies. Marquis Graham entertained us at the piano, which was fol- lowed by a girlis quartet consisting of M. Green, R. Gordon, D. Corliss and J. Foresman 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 Troubadours. 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 charge of room 210. For the first part, the 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 Smith, Betty Rosenkrans, Mayola Wall, Robert Slack, and Carlton Tracy. The dancing group consisted of Fred Shuker, Mary Wilson, Sybil Spear, Chester Yurick, and Helen Sienczuck. Betty Rosenkrans and Mary Smith concluded the program with two Russian songs. The first sophomore home room program, room 301, certainly set a shining example. lt began with a violin solo by Miss Barbara Blake. Then we were amused by an enter- taining little one-act play called, 'GDO You Believe in Luck?" This skit was exception- ally well enacted and received many fine compliments. The following Monday, room 303, pre- sented their entertainment. lt opened with a delightful piano solo, "Valse Chromatiquef, by Miss Jean Davidson and was followed by two vocal selections, '4The Bells of Saint Mary" and uThe Sunshine of Your Smile," rendered by Miss Margaret Curran. Finally, Mr. Everett Smith of the 'fNimble Witsw radio programs was introduced and while we quickened our mental faculties by his clever problems, Miss Eunice Whitaker played the piano. -- - - - ---" -----W --- l62j THE ADVOCATE The next sophomore program was in charge of rooms 304' and 305. Private Laurence McKinnon showed us four reels of authentic war pictures, which proved most interesting. Room 307 presented Miss Leone Herrell of the Curry School of Expression. Miss Her- rell dramatized two plays for us. The longer one was a somewhat tragic story of the period of the French revolution. '4Homely is as Homely Does" was a very humorous skit. As an encore she recited "The Cautious Maidf, l ..l g-, The last sophomore home room certainly ended up the year in a fine manner. The program of Room 313 consisted of tap danc- ing by Robert Semple, accompanied by Mar- 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. 1.i..Q,t.T. 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? ..31-..- 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. THE ADVOCATE T631 DEBATI NG CLUB The debating club, under the direction of Mr. Benton, meets Mondays during the organization period in the school library. They study the elementary principles of argumentation and debate. The club holds many very interesting individual debates on a wide range of subjects,ilocal, state, 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, Thomas Dodd, Alternate. North Attleboro won the debate by a 2 - l decision. . The club began with I8 members, but the membership at present is 12. The club oflicers are: Louis Gilbert, president, Edgar Butters, vice-president, Anna Chiappisi, secretary. 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 as advisor. 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. There. We think we did quite a good bit of ueavesdroppingf' don,t you? CONCERT BY THE MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS 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 SENIOR PROM 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. JUNIOR PROM 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 exception. 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.

THE ADVOCATE T671 Neezllzam High School Advocate Greetings: 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 Hnd a guy going to sea. At the bottom, and 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 us. It was a rejuvenating sight to see that light Needham eleven dazzle the burly brutes from Wellesley with such a Notre Damish collection of plays. It was hot stuff, Mr. Weston, and we are proud to have been in the old yellow high school with you. ,lust a few parting queries. Do they still call Mr. Weston 'LBobo?" Does Mr. Fred L. Frost still fill his blackboards with fearsome hieroglyphics? Does Miss Churchill still tell how she made the seventh hole in two? Does anybody need a good ollice boy? Does the Advocate still run competitions which the Editors win? Does the Advocate still run? Russell W. Seaver, '26.

Dazzling passes kept the ball traveling from one end of the court to the other until both teams were deadlocked at fourteen all. Wellesley jumped into the lead as the period closed. A basket by David Hall and a foul shot put Needham ahead midway in the fourth period. As the game wore on it looked as though our boys might be able to hold on to their meagre lead. But with only seconds to play, however, Skahill of Wellesley on a fast break down the floor scored the basket which won the game for Wellesley. The second team fared much better than the Erst in the number of victories, winning almost half of their games. Many of the Sophomores have had a chance on the team and have proved good prospects. Among them are Murphy, Nye, Sienczuk, Chambers. Kennedy, and Wilson. l BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Date Dec. 19 Needham 22 Alumni .... 37 Jan. -1- Needham 43 Alumni .... 29 Jan. 10 Needham 23 Milton ...., 25 Jan. 13 Needham 20 Natick ,.... 22 Jan. 16 Needham 26 Dedham , 26 Jan. 18 Needham 32 Walpole 29 Jan. 20 Needham 23 Natick .. 28 Jan. 23 Needham 22 Brookline 32 Jan. 30 Needham. . .27 Dover . , lfl Jan. 31 Needham 29 Dedham 24 Feb 1 Needham 22 Holliston 23 Feb. 3 Needham 15 Belmont. 23 Feb 6 Needham 20 Brookline 23 Feb. 8 Needham 18 Walpole. 31 Feb. 10 Needham. . .16 Wellesley 12 Feb 16 Needham 29 Norfolk . 20 Feb. 16 Needham 10 Dover . . . 7 Feb 17 Needham 17 Wellesley 18 1,l'1TTEB MEN W'arren Murphy Keris Lansherg Silshy Hall Stupak Kalinowski ll. Glynn BOYS' GYM MEET A capacity crowd witnessed the third annual gym meet presented under the capable direction of Mr. Claxton, and much credit is due him for his ability in teaching the boys the many intricate stunts which were performed. The meet got under way when about 100 boys marched onto the Hoor and went through a series of Swedish gymnastics. Later these same boys gave an exhibition of marching and competed in the class games. The gym team, which consisted of twenty- three boys, performed on the parallel bars and then put on the intricate Flamborough sword dance. Breathtaking stunts, performed on the high bar, were followed by splendid marching. Tumbling and stunts on the Swedish box completed the efforts of this group. Wrestling matches were also enjoyed with McCarty wrestling Calitri, and Fantegrossi stacking against Cericola. No decisions were handed out, and as no falls were recorded both matches resulted in a draw. The entire meet went over in splendid fashion and all those who participated are to be commended for their fine work. Miss Zirsch: Ml donit see how those base- ball players ever get clean." Miss Balfour: 'gDon't be silly. What do you think they have the scrub teams for?7 E ADVOCATE lQ71 1721 THE ADVOCATE I 1 l i HOCKEY 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. Game 1 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. Game 2 Quincy 6-Needham 0 The boys played a very courageous game under the circumstances, but, as we were mi- nus a few of our best players, the game came to a sad end. THE ADVOCATE E731 Came 3 B. C. High 1WNeedham 1 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. Game 4 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 Close enough. ln the third period of the game Wellesley made a goal. The faithful onlook- ers of Needham were wildl Suddenly, Gor- don shot the puck to Cole, who took a pretty shot, making the score a tie. , Game 5 Wvatertown 0--Needham 0 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 Hrst lineup. Came 6 Walpole 2-Needham 2 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. Came 7 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 nice work all through this game. Wfe had an enthusiastic team this year and have good prospects for next year in Mullan, Waitkunas, Cowdrey, Fortune, Moore, Beale, and Packard. Letter Men tfirst team? R. Dearing H. Burr A. Hopson J.

GOLF The Boys' Golf Team was organized this year as an authorized sport under the direc- tion of Miss Churchill. Eighteen boys re- ported as candidates for the team, which is composed of six players. Lack of practice has hindered the team during the first of the sea- son, but we look for a favorable ending.

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- Laughlin. 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 game. 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 center field. 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 runs. 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- ner home. 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 our defeat. 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 out of its slump and bring home some vic- tories.

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 this meet. 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. INTERSCHOLASTIC MEET 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 school boy. 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, McCauley. 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. Following are the individual scores of each team!

The prospects for the team looked exceedingly good as many of the candidates showed great promise in practice sessions. On May 12 the opened its season Courts by defeating Revere High School three matches to two. Needham clinched the match in the early stages by winning all three single tennis team successfully on the Needham Club engagements, but Revere came back and won the two doubles matches. "Dick7, Warren's three set victory over Tarkin of Revere feat- ured this opening match. For its second match of the season the team journeyed to Natick and encountered a vet- eran Natick High Team. The first defeat of the season for the Needham boys was the re- sult, by the score of 3 to 0. Both the doubles matches were cancelled due to a time limit on the use of the courts. 'LBuddie', Wood's three set match was the high spot for the losers. Needham was the host to Wellesley High on May 18, and the visitors came through and gave Needham a 4 to 1 defeat. The matches were much more closely contested than the scores indicate, for Warren and Tribble car- ried their opponents to three sets before be- ing defeated. The team is now steadily rounding into shape, and before the season is over they should bring home a few victories. THE ADVOCATE tall GIRLS, The girls, tennis TENNIS tournament for the championship of the school is under way. Any girl who wishes may sign up for this tournament, and this gives many girls at least one chance to play on the club courts. Carroll Cobb, the varsity captain, Jean Fores- man, and Martha Kimball are practically all 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 with Lexington, Watertown, Wellesley, and Newton. LEADERS' CLUB The leaders, club has been progressing rapidly. Two sophomore girls have been added to the club, Susan Loomis and Betty Church. ,ff The work has mainly been marching and gymnastics and the training of student leaders for the gym meet and gym classes. On the whole these leaders have been very successful. Every girl who has been in the club this year has thoroughly enjoy ed it and has also received much useful training. SWIMMING! Surprise! A group of girls were invited to the Brookline pool to a Swimming Play Day. There were girls from Newton, Welles- ley, and Brookline the1'e also. The competi- tion was not between schools but between mixed teams. However, jo Starkweather tied for second place in the diving, and Betty Church came out third in the free style. Everyone had a grand time and, after the swimming, ice cream and cake were served to sustain the girls on the way home. 21 THE ADVOCATE THE ADVOCATE issj GIRLS, BASKETBALL Although the girls' basketball season was exceptionally short this year, the games were snappy and well worth watching. On the Senior team, Thelma Silsby and Betty Gil- bert, forwards, had a system of fast passing which bewildered many opposing guards. Carroll Cobb kept the other team on the jump with her unusual plays, and Jo Stark- weather played her usual fast game as side- center. The Juniors had a snappy team this year. Elsa Rossi and Mildred Geyer made a com- bination of guards that was the nightmare of many opposing forwards. Jean Foresman and Helen Decatur kept things going in the center, and Stella Roklan and Chilla Kennett 'csunki' baskets with amazing rapidity. The Sophomore team showed great 'prom- ise this year. Riva Rossi and Marguerite Hubbs, forwards, worked out a good system of passing during the year, and Betty Church and Susan Loomis, guards, although small, were surprisingly successful in getting the ball. The scores were: Seniors , Juniors Sophomores 14- 7 16 Lexington Needham 1 1 10 5 Wellesley 14- 15 21 Needham 10 14- 4 Newton 28 22 7 Needham 20 141 8 ' Waltham 18 11 21 Needham 16 9 8 PLAY DAY Announcing that Needham High is plan- ning a Play Day for this spring, to which we hope to invite Newton, Wiellesley, Lexington, Brookline, and Waltham. We shall have eight girls from each school and play base- ball, volley ball, hockey, and 'track events. 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 79.7. I f XOCATIC fvmj 'rHr xn BIOLOGY THREAT ,.-QHEQVNT ?
