T would be impossible to print in any volume all the school events
S 2' I y which have occurred during this year, and it is far from our desire
.Iliff Q '4 to do this. On the contrary we have attempted to make this book
V, one that will interest every member of our school, and each of its
all many friends. To do this it has been necessary to pass over many
things interesting to a few, but not of such a character as to
be interesting to all. We give this as our excuse for the many omissions which
must be necessarily noticed. It has been the honest endeavor of the Editorial Board
to select material worthy of appearing herein, and to give as much space to each
department as seemed proper, considering the limitations that we were forced to
meet in regard to time and resources. From the outset the enterprise has met with
enthusiastic support. Many of our teachers have given their co-operation, and
much of their careful thought and suggestion, to promote the undertaking. Mr.
Thomas has kindly guided and furthered the movement from the beginning, and we
are grateful to him, beside other things, for reading much of this book in manuscript
and proof. Miss Dix has given her time and thought to the artistic side, and we
are indebted to her to a great extent for the excellent drawings which head the various
departments. Most of these headings were done in her classes, and under her direct
supervision. If we should attempt to mention all who have helped us in the work,
we should have little space left in the book for other material, and we shall have to
be content with merely thanking them all for their assistance.
However, there are a few other things which must be mentioned. Among these
is the fact that other people besides scholars have shown an interest in the Annual.
It is only through the liberal support of the advertisers that this book could be pub-
lished. It has taken almost incessant work on the part of the Editorial Board to
assemble the material so that the Annual might appear by the middle of j une, and
the business managers have been equally busy.
We hope that the success attained by this first Annual of the Newton High
School will warrant a similar undertaking by each succeeding class, and that this
will become a permanent institution of the School.

10 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
The F lame
BY S. FOSTER DAMoN, 1910
Scene 1. CA wild tangled opening in the heart of an African jungle. Prostrate
on the ground is a man, an African warrior, regardless of the burning sun which
floods the forest. The foliage is that of lurid autumn.j
QThe man remains still for a while, then he lifts his head.j
The Man.--But still I remain alive, and so do they .... They are so weak,
there, back in their villageg they could not endure a "murderer," who merely
asserted his rights. What though I did kill him, the sheep !-vdid he not dare
to steal my meat, my gazelle that I myself had waylaid? He lives by theft!
Oh, I could burn the whole ant-heap of them! . . .
The very vines, reddened by this late, hot autumn, are as Sanguine as my
thoughts. Nature herself seems to be urging my plans on to completion. As
I left the mud huts, I warned them that my vengeance would be terrible. The
women skulked more than usual, the young men laughed their scom even more
boastfullyg they drove me still harder, and with difficulty did I escape them.
They seek me no further, I know their infirmity of purpose. But I am not infirm!
No, they shall suffer, all of them! . . .
The spear kills one with many blows, while fire, the gift of Joba, eats all
without effort. What though I perish in the flames myself, if so many die with
me? The knowledge that they will scream in agony will cool me like a spring
breeze as I offer myself as a first victim ....
Joba, the sun, was I named after. He took me under his protection after
I killed my first tiger fso said the old priest, if he is to be believedj. joba gave
us fire, so I shall be dutiful in using his gift, as well as in destroyingg for is he
not the great destroyer? I will burn the forest with its multitudes of beasts
and snakes, the forest will burn the village, the plains, the deserts, even the great
sea, until the entire world will blaze like a huge platter of palm-oil! Joba him-
self will grow red with envy at his son's handiwork!
CI-Ie tries to make a fire. His impatience is soon rewarded: a tiny smoke
springs up. I t is fed with dead leaves,' it is blown upon,' soon it bursts into flame.
He drags dry branches on it,' it grows higher and higher, until it is taller than he,
always crackling and hissing spitefully. Then suddenly a woman's form is perceived
in the fire, very faint and indistinct, but constantly growing plainer as the flames
flash up. She is dancing wildly, flinging her arms and long, black hair over her
head in purest ecstacy of new-born existence. She seems to be the genius of the jire.
He sees her, awestruckj
joba.-Who is that wonderful creature there in the fire? Whence can she
have sprung? Will she do me a hurt? But no, she does not heed me, she sees
nothing, she is thinking of nothing but her dancing. I never saw such dancing,
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 11
not even at the king's balls. She is different from anything I ever saw. Where
could she have gotten such a wonderful red tinge to her skin? Her hair is long
and wavyg one cannot tell it from the smoke at times. Her lips are redder than
the lion's gums, they are not so full as the village women's lips, they are much
more delicateg and how they smile! They smile brighter than the lake after one
has been huntingg they are more refreshing than the water on one's own lips.
She is more beautiful than the gods themselves. She must have had Joba
himself for father. No, Joba must have sent her to me for a bride!
tHe dashes into the fire. For a moment he remains there, struggling in the
swirling smoke and cinders, trampling on the burning coals with his naked feet,
trying to drag the woman out of the flames, till at length he succeeds, and the fre
CShe stands upright on the opposite side of the opening from him, her arms
drawn close to her sides. Her long dark hair drapes her as in a mantle. She is
shivering, but one cannot tell whether it is from cold or fright. They look at each
Joba.-Who are you? . . .
She.-I-I do not know ....
Joba.-Whence do you come?
She.-Out of the flame .... It is gone .... I must go, too.
She.-I do not know .... I do not belong here ....
Joba.-But where can you go? The fire is out .... Do you come from
the great Joba, the sun?
She.--It was hot, and I was wild with joy. I was dancing and you stopped
me. You seized me by the waist and pulled me out into the cold .... Look,
you can still see the ashes with a little smoke floating up .... I will die.
Joba.-You will not die .... I will keep you warm .... Joba sent you
to me for a bride. He is my father.
She.-Who is Joba?
Q Joba.-He is my father. He is the sun. One can see him now, up through
the leaves .... He sent you to me, did he not?
She.-Perhaps he did .... fShe looks at him with greater confidence.J
I am cold ....
Joba.-We cannot stay hereg you might die. The beasts prowl here at
night. Come, follow me, swiftly.
She.-Where are we going?
Joba.-Back to the village. They hate me there, but I am strong and I
can make them let me in .... Besides, there is no other place, as it will soon
be winter, when it rains and the nights are very coldg and you might die ....
QExit quickly. She pauses to look back on the handful of ashes in the center
of the opening, then follows swiftly after him.j

Scene 2. QThe village wall. A fortification heaped out of mud, crowned with
a line of thorn bushes. A rude gate to the left. Over the wall can be seen the tops
of houses-tall, peaked, grass-thatched roofs. There is one especially high-that
of a temple to F ougamou, the great iron-smith. To the right are a couple of palm
Uoba and the woman enter softly. They crouch on the outside of the wall.j
Joba.-This is the village. We must be cautious, for the people hate me,
as I told you before. But be brave. If we can once get to my house unper-
ceived, I can keep them at bay until they get used to our being there and won't
interfere with us. That is my house there, the one with the skins hanging from
She.-Do we live inside those filthy buildings? I would stifle ....
Joba.-No, no, you must not feel thus. It will be hot for a while, I know,
but we must live .... In a few days you will be able to go with the other women
tothe spring for water.
She.-Water? I do not know what-.
CA child in play has climbed to the top of the wall, laughing as it tries to balance
itself there. Suddenly it looks down and sees the couple. It shrieks and jumps down
behind the wallj
The Child.-Joba! Joba. has come back! He will murder us all! He has
a witch with him! A Witch! Witch!
fThere is an answering tumult in the villagej
Joba.-We are discovered! Keep close to me. We will get in yet ....
QA crowd of people in an uproar open the gates, and block the entrance, but
do not come out. They shake their fists, and threaten with spears. "Witch!"
"Murdered" "Red-skin sorceress!" "Aniemba!" "Do you want our souls?"
"Would you kill our cattle with your spells?" "I have a fetish that is stronger
than yours !" 'AGO away from here l" "You are not wanted here !" "We may
kill you if we have to drive you away again !" "You had better go !" are cried
An old Woman Cstepping outj.-You killed my song I curse you!

back to life ?" "Go back to the forests with your bride !" "You can live in her
tree-palace !" "Go, or we will curse you !" A
Joba.-She is no witch! We shall die in the forests. I will pay the blood
price, if you will only let us come back ....
Chorus.--"No, no !" "Who ever saw a woman with a red skin that was not
supernatural?" "She is a witch and lives in the trees!""She is a. gorilla at
night !" "Dog tooth! Dog tooth!" "We are getting ready to hunt you if you
don't go!" "Here comes the priest!" 'The priest!"
The Priest Cpreceded by a rude gongb .-Joba, murderer, get you gone!
Joba.-Father, spare us!
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 13
The Priest.--And take with you the Witch!
joba.-She is no Witch.
The Priest.-Then will she undergo the test of the burning oil?
joba.-No, for it is not fair! It is only the witches themselves that survive
it. Let us in I I will make full amends ....
QA man has climbed a palm tree and is vigorously shaking the branches. Several
people have found gongs and are ringing them continuously. Others are blowing
discordant conch shells.j
The Priest.-Go, or I will turn the warriors loose on you.
Joba.-But we will die if we go back to the forests ....
The Priest.-Fougmou will sharpen our spears against you. He himself
will pursue you.
Joba.-joba will protect us against you, for this is his daughter and I am
his son. Beware of his wrath!
The Priest.-He withdraws his protectiong see, the clouds are covering his
face for the first time in months ....
Joba.-It is but the winter rains! They are belated ....
The Priest fto the crowdsj.-Joba withdraws his protection! They are
doomed. Let them reach the jungle. After that they may be killed ....
fjoba and the woman flee. The gong rings still more loudly. The warriors
go for their weaponsj
Scene 3. CThe desert. A vast wilderness of sand, blown here and there into
hillocks. The sky is filled with dark clouds moving hither and thither, disclosing
now and then a little corner of blue sky.j
Cjoba and the woman enter, exhausted. He is supporting her. They sink
down behind a tiny hill. joba looks at the sky and shakes his head, then turns to
the woman again.j
Joba.-We can rest here. We have thrown them off the track. They
thought we would Hee to the forest, but the beasts there would have killed us
at night, for we would have no tree palace, as they think. The brutes! If they
had but one neck, how I would love to throttle them!
She.-It is getting dark and cold ....
Joba.-Be quietg you are tired, and cannot afford to exert yourself. I will
see if they are near us ....
CHe crawls on his stomach to the top of the sand-hill. Cautiously he peers
around for a long time. There is no one in sight. He comes down again.j
Joba.--We are saved! There is no one anywhere near us for miles. They
have all gone to the forest, where a tiger may carry one off. We must cross the
desert, which will be difficult, for the days are so hot and the nights are very cold.
Then it is so hard to get water, but luckily I have my water-skin. We must save.
When the desert is crossed, there are fine green trees and people with white
skins who build their houses out of stone. They are very kind and will help us
14 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
to get food. Beyond their houses is the great sea where one can bathe every
day, and where the water never gets stagnant. But no one can drink it because
it is very bitter. And there are big canoes with white sails that go sailing over
it until they disappear, they become so small.
She.-I will not mind the hot days, but I am very much afraid of the cold
Joba.-Oh, we shall get along finely. Lie quietly, for you will need a great
deal of strength .... Why do you shiver so violently?
She.-I am afraid of the black clouds over us. They shut out the beautiful
sky and the gorgeous sun. I could not live without the sun ....
joba.-I am afraid that it is going to rain ....
She.-What is rain?
joba.-It is great streaks of water coming down from the sky. It makes
the ground quite soft, but all the plants grow very green again. We have a lot
of rain about this time of year. It has been late coming, and that is why the
plants were so red in the forest. CPanse.j
She.-The last bit of sky has been covered up for a long time, and I was
watching for it to look out again .... I am so afraid!
Joba.-Of what? No one is near us, and I would kill any that came. They
know it, and that is why they have left us alone.
She.-It is not that .... fShe shrieksj Something bit me ....
She ftrembling from the shockj.-I have wiped it off with my hair. . .
I did not see it, it must have been very smallg but how it hurt!
joba.-It was a sand Hea probably .... It is beginning to sprinkle ....
How white you are! . . . I think we had better move on, even if it does
rain, for the warriors will come here, perhaps tomorrow, and one can be seen a long
way over the sand. '

A Romance in a Teacup
BY JULIA RAYMOND SCHMALZ, 1910
5 T was the first day of the month. june had come in gently, bringing
,Ig with it balmy days, the scent of spring flowers, the busy chirp of
YH birds, and the hum of bees.
The season had dealt especially kind with the little town of
Wetherby, for the rolling fields were now soft and green, and the
trees never before looked so stately and luxuriant in their spring
regalia. The broad main street was like a green-lighted aisle beneath its canopy
of dense, wide-spreading willows, that almost met overhead.
The late afternoon sun was beginning to cast long shadows, and the active
life of the town seemed suspended for a time. The solitary postman was making
his last round for the day, and had stopped rather longer than customary at
Miss Roslind's door. He took an especial interest in her geraniums, and also,
as he used to say, very seriously, "Five minutes with Miss Roslin' is minutes well
This afternoon, as usual, Miss Roslind sat sewing on her little square veranda,
which was a perfect bower of flowers. The crimson rambler, which ran over the
whole front of the quaint little whitewashed house, shut in the veranda like a
screen and made it very cosy. There was a window-box in every open latticed
window, and a row of them ran down each side of the broad front walk to the
little swinging gate. Vases of cut flowers stood on the bamboo tables, and the
air was heavy with their perfume. Miss Roslind was sitting at a low tea table
which was daintily arranged for two, in her lap her forgotten embroidery, and
in her hand an open letter.
It must have been an hour later when Angelica came out to the veranda
to join her aunt in their customary cup of afternoon tea. The old lady was still
sitting, deep in thought, with a far-away, dreamy look in her eyes. She roused
herself with a start when she saw her niece, and began to make an unnecessary
clatter with the teacups.
16 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
The young girl, who was spending several weeks of her vacation with this
dear little aunt of hers, had learned from experience, and from the instinct of
her own generous heart, to restrain her curiosity where her Aunt Marie was
concerned. But this time she was genuinely curious. She had never been able
to understand her aunt's changing moods, nor had she ever been able to see
very deeply into the heart of this sweet little old lady, whom she admired ex-
travagantly. This admiration was generously returned by the old lady. The
strong, jolly, confident nature of the young girl was almost incomprehensible
to her frail, timid, retiring little aunt, who, nevertheless, took great comfort
in her strength, and was exceeding proud of her knowledge. Miss Roslind was
always glad to have Angelica with her, and perhaps the happiest event in the
year for her, was the occasion of Angelica's spring visit. She did not, however,
like ,to have her ask questions.
Miss Roslind poured the tea, and absent-mindedly dropped three lumps of
sugar into her own cup, upset the tea caddy, and coughed violently, before
Angelica dared break the awkward silence. Aunt Marie was undoubtedly
"I see you have given me your pet 'Prophetic Cup' this afternoon. Thank
you so much, Auntie," she said, as she picked up an odd little fortune-telling cup
which had been given to her aunt when she was a girl and which she invariably
used for the sake of its associations. "May I have some more tea, please ?', asked
"The tea is not at all well made," replied Aunt Marie, nervously, "I must
speak to Katie about it again. But, my dear child, you really must not drink
so much tea, it will make you ill."
"Oh, Auntie, I really don't want the tea, but I do want some more leaves.
Did you know that I could tell fortunes beautifully? VVe do it at college all the
time, and have such fun. I'm really quite good at it, and with this cup I could
do it much better. I have always wanted to use it. Now you just listen, Aunt
Marie, and I'll show you what a 'Seer' I am--. Now don't object, please !"
"Why, of course I'll listen, child, but I shan't believe a word of it," with a
furtive motion toward the letter tucked safely away in her dress.
"Aunt Marie, I see many interesting things here! Yes, the first is a great
event-let me see-yes, its going to happen at home. But it comes from far
away, and has something to do with horse-reins,-isn't that funny? and--it's a
man l He is coming from very far off, and is very grand, he isn't young, nog but
he is wise, because, you see, one of the leaves has caught fast over the owl's head.
Isn't this exciting? Well, this will be! You are going to have an affair of the
heart-isn't that a professional phrase? Yes, I distinctly see a reference to the
heart, and there are two leaves over the heart, which means, of course, that it
will be a happy affair. But the most important thing," she concluded, laughing,
puzzled by her aunt's expression, "is about a flower. It means, I'm sure, that
those pansies you planted today are going to flourish, and--"
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 17
"Angelica Roslind, what are you talking about? Have you-I mean, are
you making up all this silly nonsense? Of course I don't believe a word of it,
bu-but I can't let you go on." She was preparing to go into the house, and just
before she went upstairs she called out to her bewildered niece :-
"I forgot to tell you, Angelica, but I'm expecting a guest tomorrow, an old
friend, Mr. Roberts." i
"Aunt Marie! you don't mean to say I-. But of course, I just told you
someone was coming, and," she added, teasingly, "we'll leave the rest to fate
and Mr. Roberts, hey, Auntie?" But Auntie was gone.
It was evening again, but this time the little house on Maple Road was not
the scene of such quiet repose as usual. The awaited guest had arrived, and all
was astir to bid him welcome. The dainty muslin curtains at the windows
fluttered in the cool breeze, and the front door stood wide open. The little
mistress herself fluttered back and forth from the piazza to the sitting-room,
arranging the newly cut flowers in vases and straightening the disarranged pile
of magazines on the piazza table. Had she ever looked daintier, and more girlish?
The lavender frock that she wore was low at the neck, and very soft and becoming.
The delicate color in her cheeks was heightened by excitement and her silvery
hair looked almost golden in the soft light of the late afternoon sun.
The evening meal was eaten quietly, but to Angelica's occasional remarks
the old gentleman replied in the quaint old-time manner that was particularly
fascinating to the young girl. He was a typical old-fashioned gentleman, she
thought. Tall, imposing, and still handsome. His gray hair and beard were
streaked with white, but his face was ruddy, and his carriage erect. He was not
a great talker, but he charmed his hostesses with brief but glowing accounts of
his extensive travels and was very enthusiastic in his pleasure at being there.
Miss Roslind was cordially hospitable, but very quiet.
The evening was spent out in the garden, the old gentleman leisurely smoking
his pipe, and going over, in a graphic way, the events of the intervening years,
since last he saw his old friendg while she sat with hands folded, her eyes moist,
and her heart full, listening again to the voice whose sound had so long been
as dead to her ears.
Upstairs, alone at her window, Angelica sat thinking, and her cheeks were
wet with tears. She had come up to bed with a heavy heart, tonight, with a
heart that was touched with an inexpressible sadness. A sudden realization of
the pathos of her aunt's life had come over her, and had awakened a note of
pain in her sympathetic, loving heart. For the first time she was able to interpret,
in the sweet, patient face of the old lady, the record of a broken heart, bravely
When Angelica was only a little girl, her mother told her that she must always
be good and kind to her Aunt Marie, for she had had a great disappointment
18 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
and was very sad. From this time a friendship had grown up between aunt and
niece which became more and more devoted and intimate as the years passed.
When she grew older she learned that her aunt had had a very sad love affair,
but she never asked any questions about it, for fear of causing pain. She had
always been sorry for her aunt, and when she was very young she used to weep
bitterly when she had to go home after a visit, and leave her aunt there all alone,
in her pretty, but lonely little house. '
But yesterday her own unwitting, joking prophecy, and her aunt's agitation,
at the coming of their guest, revealed to her the old lady's well-guarded secret.
This splendid old gentleman, then, was perhaps once the heedless object of her
aunt's girlish and ever faithful love? Who knows? Angelica did not know, but
her heart told her that the happiness of one whom she loved was at stakeg and
at this thought she had the passionate ambition to be the means of re-uniting,
if possible, these two souls that had been so long apart. She knew nothing
definitely, but she felt that she had been given a revelation. So, relying un-
consciously on the guidance of her own heart, she planned to do her best to aid
Cupid in a piece of tardy, long-neglected work.
Angelica went about her tasks all the next day as in a dream. Her mind
was full of half-formed plansg but a sense of great responsibility, and of some-
thing impending, dampened her usual buoyant spirits.
The first of her little schemes failed miserably. An early caller interrupted
the quiet morning on the veranda which had promised to be the auspicious time
for the fulfillment of her hopes. Nor did the cozy luncheon in the garden,
tete-Ez-tete, which she had arranged and prepared herself with the greatest care,
prove the instrument for Cupid's dart. She began to despair, however, when
Mr. Roberts insisted on having her join her aunt and himself in their afternoon
tea, so that he could explain to her the botanical history of a flower she had
asked him about the day before. There was only one thing that consoled Angelica
in her perplexity, and that was hearing Mr. Roberts consent, in answer to his
friend's cordial invitation, to prolong his visit until the next day, instead of
leaving that night, as he had intended.
The very interesting discourse on botany, which he was delivering, was
worse than lost on Angelica. The evolution of her next plan was absorbing her
whole attention. "Now, for one last attempt," she thought, desperately. "He
leaves tomorrow, perhaps forever, and tonight is his last opportunity to reveal
the purpose of his visit, and his reawakened love for Aunt Marie-if he has any.
I can't seem to arrange an opportunity for them here at home-in this quiet,
stupid little place, too. It's absurd! So they will have to be gotten away to-
gether, alone,-somehow! By some happy chance part of that silly fortune telling
of mine has come true, and I must make the rest of it come true. A drive is my
last resort. A moonlight drive. Praises be, there is a moon! This will account
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 19
for the reins, and if the moon, and the night, and Cupid, and- Mr. Roberts
:an't carry out the rest, I guess it can't be done." At this point in her thoughts
the postman interrupted Mr. Roberts, and in the general conversation that
followed, she slipped off, on the plea of having to write a letter to her mother.
Angelica watched them drive off down the moonlit road, and turning with
a sigh of relief, went into the house.
This part of her little program had been very hard to carry out, for two
reasons. First, because their only horse, a bony, jog-trot old mare, was laid up
with a sprained ankle, and second, because her aunt was deadly afraid to
drive at night. She had cleverly overcome both of the seemingly insurmountable
difficulties, however, by persuading a neighbor to offer her aunt the loan of his
horse while her guest remained, and by inventing an urgent need of butter for
breakfast, which could only be obtained at a dairy three miles down the road.
But now they were off, and Angelica's responsibility was over.
She was too excited to read, and too lonely to embroider, so she sat down
at the piano in the dimly-lighted sitting-room, and gave vent to her feelings in
one of those beautiful, plaintive nocturnes by Chopin. She played on and on,
one lovely thing after another, for she was a born musician. Time was forgotten,
and her restless mood became attuned to the perfect harmony of the music
that she played.
Carriage wheels roused her, finally, as the last chord of her favorite piece died
away, and she fairly Hew out to the veranda as Mr. Roberts was handing Miss
Roslind from the little runabout. She stopped, ashamed of her haste, but hesi-
tated only a minute. The little hanging veranda-lamp lighted up the faces of
the two friends as they came up the steps, arm in arm, and the joy, and con-
tentment, and happiness written there, would have been significant to a denser
mind and less sympathetic heart than Angelica's. She had never seen her aunt
look as radiant and as beautifulg and the only thing she could liken Mr. Roberts
to, was a victor leading off, in triumph, a priceless treasure-and she was well
pleased with the simile.
She rushed into her aunt's outstretched arms, with the tears streaming
down her cheeks. Then, half laughing, half crying she managed to say through
her tears:- q
"Now, Aunt Marie, will you ever doubt my predictions again?"
And Mr. Roberts did not leave the next day.

The Origin of Summer
BY DC,7ROTHY STANLEY EMMoNs
OULD ye know whence comes the Summer?
- With her clear, swift, rushing rivers?
With her birds and fragrant flowers?
Listen now, to this traditiong
f ' X One of Carrabassett's legends,
VVhieh he tells as o'er the mountains,
Slowly sinks in all his splendor,
Sol, the Monarch of the Daylight.
"Long ago, when lived our people
In the early soft gray Morning,
Glooskap wandered far to northward,
To the icy land of Snowdrifts.
There he met the Snow King, 'Wintcrg
Went with him into his Wigwam,
Made of frozen rain-bow crystals:
There they talked and smoked, but slowly
Glooskap felt his eyelids closing-
'Twas the Frost, the charm was on him,
VVinter froze-and Glooskap slumhered.
Six long moons waned ere he wakened,
Then in haste he journeyed southward.
Vifarmer grew the air-and flowers
Cheered him with their happy faces,
Told him all their sweetest secrets.
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
Sudden came he to a forest,
Where, on velvet moss and grasses,
Many little folk were dancingg
And upon a couch of blossoms
Lay their Queen, the smiling Summer.
Glooskap caught her up and kept her-
By a crafty trick he kept her!
Cutting long cord from a moose-hide,
Glooskap trailed the end behind him,
Then as they, the white light fairies
Pulled the cord to stay his progress.
Glosskap payed it out, and left them
Far behind, in the dim distance.
North he ran-to visit Winter-
But he had fair Summer with him,
Safely sheltered in his bosom.
Winter welcomed him with gladness,
For he thought this time to freeze him
Into sleep which knows no waking!
This time Glooskaplv charm was strongest!
VVinter's stern cold face grew softer-
Lol he melted! and thereafter
lVhere his Wigwam stood, a lake lay,
In whose blue depths clouds were mirrored.
Everything awoke-the grass grew-
All the snow ran down the rivers,
Bird-songs echoed in the woodlands.
Leaving Summer with her fairies,
Homeward Glooskap turned his footsteps,
To the land of soft gray Morning,
To the land of golden Sunrise."
As he ceases, to the lakeside l
Carrabassett turns, and gazes
O'er its sunset tinted surface,
Toward the south-the land of Sunshine-
Land whence comes the glad warm Summer.

30 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
Four Years in High School
HEN the Class of 1910 first entered High School, four years ago, there
- lay before it possibilities, today it looks back on remembrances
which time will only soften and endear, not obliterate.
Our freshman year passed quickly, and looking back we recall
4 ' X that Newton won the championship in both football and baseball.
In the class series of football games the Sophomores defeated the
Freshmen after a hard game. The first outdoor track meet was held with Brook-
line that year.
The second year came quickly and was soon over, even before many of us
realized that we had allowed "golden moments" to slip by. During this year
Newton made a clean sweep, taking the championship in football, hockey, track,
and baseball. Mr. Adams was granted a six months, leave of absence,which he
spent abroad, his place being admirably filled by Mr. Davis. The first work on
the Technical High School was begun in this year, and we all watched with great
interest for the completion of this building. Thus our second year passed away
and we returned in the autumn as upper classmen.
We soon felt our class responsibility and hastened to elect ofiicers for the
year. Football was then in the height of the season, and we watched the cul-
mination of a successful season, in the annual Thanksgiving game with Brookline,
which Newton won. This year a French Club was formed in rivalry of the
German Club, which was organized the year before. Two Debating Clubs, a
boys' and a girls', were organized, and proved helpful to the members who
attended the meetings. Hockey and track soon began, and Newton captured
the hockey title, but lost the track championship, after a hard iight, to
Brookline. Baseball also went to our rivals. After graduation many of us
faced the terrible ordeal of "exams" which were speedily followed by a much
Our last year saw the completion of the new Technical High School, and
both schools commenced work on the same day. Our class was now partially
divided, but only by circumstances. We elected our officers after a second
attempt, and .Chauncey Doud has ably filled the position of president fto
which he was chosen. The football championship came our way after a sudden
brace just before the league games. Hockey candidates reported early in De-
cember, and the season closed in February with the winning of the champion-
ship. Soon after this the track title came to us, and now we are expectantly
waiting for the baseball honors. All our organizations have been maintained
and two interscholastic debates have been held.
We will not attempt to enlarge on this brief chronicle of our last year, as a
more detailed account may be found in another part of this book.

THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 33
VER since the beginning of football at Newton High, our school
has been prominent in local football circles. It has won the cham-
pionship of its league more times than any other school, and since
1900 our teams have won the championship five times. We have
had the almost unparalleled honor of winning the pennant for
the last four consecutive years.
On September 15, a squad of about thirty-five men reported for practice
to Captain Gallagher and Coach Reilly.
In the first two games we blanked our opponents, Needham 18-0, and
Dedham 3-I-0. But Everett was a different proposition, and although Newton
played well, she went down to defeat li-O. At this point the coach was changed.
Under Coach Holman the team started a different regime. In the first game
Newton lacked life, and was unable to score on the weak and inexperienced
Volkmann team. We conquered Roxbury Latin, however, 11-7, and played a
tie game with Boston Latin School, 5-5.
Our first game away from home was with Malden, where we were sadly
beaten, 29-6. The team seemed unable to pull together, and appeared to lack
effective coaching. We next encountered Worcester at home, and after a hard
fought game we won by 6-3.
At VValtham we reached the climax of our downfall, the team instead of
improving had been rapidly getting worse, and Waltham found us easy, beating
us 41-0. In the next week much improvement was made, for McDevitt, having
finished his coaching season at Colby, came to our rescueg andiby dint of after-
noon and evening practice the team was rounded into shape.
We defeated both our rivals, Brookline and Cambridge, by the same score,
6-0. The Thanksgiving game with Brookline resulted in a no score tie.
Allen played a strong game throughout the year. Osborne materially
strengthened the defense, while Rider excelled on the offense. Barber ran the
team well, and seldom went "up in the air." On the ends, Gallagher, though
unfortunate, was dashing offensively, and steady defensively. Flanagan and
Forte played a very consistent game. At tackle Weaver was steady and strong,
and at the same time fast and alert, while Marshall was a veritable giant on the
defense, and often opened up fine holes when Newton had the ball. At guard,
Taylor, Fiske and Noonan were consistently strong, though never brilliant.
Hopkins, at centre, was steady, and at the same time alert and fast, performing
very brilliantly occasionally.
On the whole the team was good and worked hard all through the season.
More, however, might have been expected from it if it had been consistently

CHANHWON5 OF T
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 35
F the victorious team of the season 1908-1909, four regulars and
one substitute were on the team of 1909-1910g namely, Captain
Hopkins, Washburn, Woods, Kelly and Adams. Newton started
the season by winning from Wellesley with the score of 9-3. In
each succeeding game, with such teams as Milton, Somerville,
Noble and Greenough, and a practice game with Harvard, the team
steadily improved,until it was noted by those who took an interest in the
sport that the team which represented Newton was going to count in the race
for championship of Greater Boston.
Without having suffered defeat on February 1, Newton faced her first
difficult opponent in Rindge Manual Training School, a team which at that time
was generally conceded to be the best preparatory school team in eastern Massa-
chusetts. In the face of what seemed sure defeat, it was only after a very fast
and hard game, that Newton won, by the score of 4-3. The victory was well
earned and was won only by the best efforts of each player.
On Thursday of the same week, Newton met Cambridge Latin in the first
league game, and easily beat them by 7-0.
On February 8, in a dull and uninteresting game, Newton received her first
and only defeat at the hands of Arlington, whose team finally won the Greater
Boston championship. The score was 3-1. 1
The second league game, which was with Brookline, was nothing short of
a mrflce, in which Newton had the upper hand, defeating them 12-2. By this
victory Nevnon won the championship of the Preparatory League. Out of ten
contests, the team won nine and lost one, scoring 58 goals to its opponents' 13.
Captain Hopkins was the best all-round player and was the mainstay of
the team, its success was largely due to his coaching and steady playing. The
hardest player on the team was Washburn who had the greatest number of goals
to his credit. It is sufficient to say that he made the All Interscholastic Team.
Woods, the third forward, played a consistent game and was the swiftest and
surest shooter on the team. Adams, the other forward, developed into one of
the best forwards on any school team before the season was over. He was a
fast, hard player, making up for every bit he lacked in size, by endurance and
speed. As coverpoint, Kelly showed his ability and stopped many .danger-
ous-looking rushes for our goal. Though it was Smart's first year on the team,
he proved himself an excellent point. Burns played very well and should be a
valuable asset next year. Nothing better could be asked for than Chandler's
goal-tending. As substitute, Gaw did his part when called upon. Unfortunate-
ly, all except one of these men are members of the class of 1910, and therefore
leave school at the end of this year, but they wish as much success to the hockey
team of next year as was theirs this year.
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 37
F one should make a careful study of the trophies and photographs
of athletic teams in our trophy room, he would notice that basket-
'51 ball is not represented. For some reason, this sport did not seem
to be very popular among the scholars in former times, and, al-
though not a success when tried five or six years ago, it was decided
to organize a team this year.
Accordingly, the last part of November, recruits were called out, and before
our first game with VVatertown on the third of December a Hrst team, consisting
of Captain Wood, Cady, Osborn, Fuller and Merrill, was selected. The over-
whelming defeat which Watertown suffered spoke well for our men's ability
and former training, and presented a bright outlook for the year.
The next week, however, when the Technology freshmen came out to test
our mettle, we did not have such an easy time. As they played by intercollegiate
rules, and we by interscholastic, a compromise was made, the teams playing
one half by the schoolboy rules, and the other half by those of college players.
Although we were slightly better than they at our rules, they outclassed us
when we played by theirs.
After this, we had a series of victories, Allen School and Rock Ridge Hall
losing to us on their own floors by overwhelming scores. Elm Hill Preparatory
School suffered a defeat of 76-li, and Quincy High School left the floor defeated
after a fast game. Thayer Academy undoubtedly gave us the best contest of
the season. Throughout the entire game it was closely contested and extremely
exciting to witness. The exceptional shooting of Cady and Osborn, together
with splendid passing and brilliant headwork of the team as a whole, made
everyone proud of it. This game was the climax of our victories, and had we
stopped here, it would have been much better, for after this the team didn't
work together as well.
During the next month, February, the team played three times, twice
without its regular line-up, away from home. It was undoubtedly due to the
loss of our captain and on account of a strange floor that we lost at Winchester.
A similar fate met us when we journeyed to Quincy for the return game, for our
whole team did not play, and the loss of one man is felt more severely in basketball
than in almost any other sport.
Our final contest was played with the Newton Y. M. C. A. Hrst team, and
after considerable hard playing, we lost by a score of 2-L-26. Everybody, even
the loyal supporters of the orange and black, joined in pronouncing it a splendid
Thus ended the season, one which was, on the whole, exceptionally successful.
Out of ten games, we won six, and lost four, two of which could hardly be called

HE department of physical training at the Newton High School
- is an integral part of the educational curriculum, and the work
there, graded and prescribed under the direction of the directors,

Athletics at Newton embrace football, baseball, track and

The track team won the championship in its field of sport in February,
when Cambridge and Brookline High Schools were defeated in the Triangular
Meet. The call for candidates in January brought out forty students for after-
noon practice in the Gymnasium. Of this number about twenty were Freshmen.
As an inducement to the Freshmen a meet was arranged with'Brookline High
between the Freshmen classes, and on February 10, this meet resulted in a victory
for Brookline by a score of 29-21.
Newton entered twelve men in the lnterscholastic Track Meet in Mechanics
Building on February 26. Newton won a place in a heat of every event entered
and in the finals was beaten by only the three prize men.
On February 24, the Twenty-first Annual Interclass Track Meet was held
and resulted in a victory for the Senior class, with the juniors a close second,
Sophomores, third, and Freshmen, fourth. The first time in many years the
Sophomores were beaten by the Freshmen in the relay race.
Captain Clancy deserves great credit, as do all the members of the team, in
carrying off the championship honors in the Triangular Meet. The members
of the team are as follows :-
W. P. Clancy, '10, S. W. Rider, '11, W. Adams, '12, R. H. Allen, '10, S. A.
Wood, '10, A. Taylor, '10, Ly. Marshall, '10, K. S. Farnham, '10, H. McLure,
'11, O. Forte, '10, O. Hickox, '11. Henry McLure, '11, was elected captain

THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 41
N the fall of 1908, with the advent of Dr. A. D. Browne as physical
U director, heavy gymnastics were introduced for the first time in
the history of the Newton High School. This new work was taken
hold of with great enthusiasm by a large number of students, who
showed so much interest that a Gymnastic Carnival was planned.
The boys filled the gymnasium nearly every afternoon during
the winter months, all practising for the Carnival. When it came, on March 20,
it justified all expectations. Nearly one hundred boys competed, and gave a
fine exhibition, before a large audience.
It is a noteworthy fact that four of our last year's gymnasts, who graduated
or left school, have all received honors this winter. S. Crocker, '09, had the
great privilege of being the first freshman ever elected captain of a Tech Varsity
Team. L. Bevan, '09, was also a member of the Tech Varsity Gymnastic Team.
R. Forbush, '09, was elected captain of the Harvard Freshman Gymnastic
Team, while N. Barstow is one of the leading point winners for the Newton
Y. M. C. A.
This fall the work was taken up with renewed interest. Most of the members
of the last year's team were still in school. The gymnastic team was recognized
by the Athletic Association for the first time and the letters GNT were awarded.
G. Walker, '11, was elected captain of the High School Team, while S. Wood,
'10, P. Schofield, '11, W. Everett, '12, and G. Hiatt, '13, were elected captains
of their respective class teams.
On Saturday evening, March 20, the second annual Gymnastic Carnival
was held. Fully as many boys competed as did the year previous. The standard
of work, as executed by the whole squad, was much higher than before, and Dr.
Browne was given much credit for his excellent work as physical director.
On the following Saturday evening, in our own gymnasium, the High
School Team competed in an exhibition with picked members of the Harvard
Varsity Team, the Harvard Freshman Team and the M. l. T. Freshman Team.
The meet was very successful, the visitors doing some remarkable work on the
parallel and horizontal bars. They expressed themselves pleasurably surprised
at the fine work of the High School Team. It was very interesting for the parents
to compare the physiques of the college and high school boys, which showed by
practical demonstration the direct benefit received from gymnastics.
The prospects for a fine team next year are very bright. Every member
of this year's team will be in school next year, and there is a wealth of promising
material in the classes of 1912 and 19123.
GIRLS' HUCKIZY TEAM
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 43
VERY year field hockey becomes more popular and more candidates
- come out for the school team and class teams. There was a great
deal of good material available for a team, and a first-class one
5.f:fE"Lgg7.. represented our school. The Varsity, although made up of mostly
'2""'U"""' inexperienced material, proved to be a strong team, as Radcliffe
Anna VVebster, '11, manager, worked hard and a number of games were
arranged, but fate was not in accordance with the plans of Miss Webster and
a downpour generally intervened.
Kathryn Tewkesbury, '11, has played two years and is a reliable, hard-
Ruth Clark, '11, made the team this year and played her position as
only a first-class player can.
Marjorie Holmes, '11, playing her first year at wing, proved to be of sterling
Clyde Carpenter, '11, our dependable goal, played her first year in good style
and was a reliable asset to the defense.
Virginia Hoffman, '10, although a diminutive player, made up what she
lacked in size, by clever playing on the school team for two years. .
Helen Rice, '11, made the team this season and played her position well,
there being none who could displace her.
Ruth Anderson, '12, played a dashing game at centre and was equal to any
of her opponents.
Nellie O'Neil, '12, played her first season as forward and supported the
family reputation established by "Tip." ,
Winifred Smith, '12, played a hard game at full back, being a difficult
player to pass. '
Elizabeth Leavens, '12, the other full back, shares with Miss Smith the
Emily Proctor, '13, played a steady game as substitute for the wings.
Beatrice Allen, '11, captained the team and was an "old reliable." Having
made the team in her freshman year, she has held down a position ever since.
The class games were exceedingly interesting. The Freshmen team was
especially strong and proved a worthy opponent for the Sophomore and Junior
teams fthe Seniors were unrepresented being unable to' have a team, for
lack of candidatesj.
The prospects for a winning team for the coming season are very favorable,
as only one player leaves. The team will again be captained by Miss Allen with
Miss Bessie Strongman as manager.

, Girls' Basketball
HEN Miss Wellington, the captain, called out the Freshmen candidates
- for basketball on November 27, there was a hearty response of
over sixty. The Wednesday following all others came out, making
over a hundred and twenty candidates in all.
6 ' ' In a surprisingly short time, under Miss Shepardson's and
Miss NVellington's coaching, the class teams were organized. In the
series of class games. the 1910 team, with Miss Jamieson as captain, came off
victorious. During one of these games Miss Wellington injured her knee so
seriously that it made it impossible for her to play during the rest of the season.
Those on the team can appreciate how hard it must have been for her to be
unable to take any part in the games. But we can also realize the help and
strength she was to us in both defeat and victory and how thoroughly she was
a real captain!
The first game played with the Cambridge Latin girls at their gymnasium
resulted in a tie of 1-1-14. A month later when we again met them, in our
own gymnasium, we defeated them by a score of 2-L-3. A week afterwards a
game was played with the Alumnae. Their team was remarkably strong and
quick, but only after a hard contest did they win by a score of 18-10. just after
vacation our last game was played with the Sargent Freshmen. Our lack of
practice was very noticeable and we were defeated 20-3.
The team was not, individually, at all remarkable but the team work was
certainly worthy of the careful coaching it had received from Miss Shepardson.
The work of the goals was very creditable. Miss Paine's throwing of free goals
was accurate and reliable. It is a pleasure to those who are leaving to feel that
there is such a capable captain for the ensuing year. Miss Tewksbury's work
was as brilliant and good as of last year and Miss Clapp proved herself a valuable
asset to the team. Miss West as jumping centre was very sure and Miss Wing
was remarkably quick and reliable. Miss Whitley's playing showed her training
of the previous year and as manager she brought the year to a successful close.
The team work of the guards was swift and sure but their height was a great
disadvantage to them. Miss Ganse's playing was very creditable, especially
owing to the fact that for two years she was unable to play. Miss Granger
played a brilliant and fast game and Miss Stuart at back guard was sure and
reliable on the defensive.
The results of the year's training and work are shown by the fact that
Newton scored 51 points to her opponents' 55.

THE BA SE BALL SQUAD
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 47
- S the baseball season is only a little more than half over we cannot
attempt to give a detailed account of all the games, or of each of
From last year's team were left seven veterans, Gaw, Wood,
and McCourt, pitchersg Sanderson, thirdg Gallagher and Fripp,
outfielders, and Captain Barry, second. Much promising material
for the vacant positions has been revealed in the opening games. Kyte looks
like a fixture at first. Osborn and Brooks have been rotating behind the bat.
Nash and Beal are putting up a good game in the field, and in all probability
will figure to the very end. At short stop there has been no one who has played
regularly. Gallagher, 'Wilson, and Barry have all been tried. Beckett has
occupied Sanderson's position at third, several games.
The team started its season with a rush, and for a while it looked as though
we would have a clean slate in the line of defeats.
Volkmann succumbed to the combination of Vlfood and Gaw as pitchers,
in the opening game of the season. Newton piled up 28 runs to Volkn1ann's 1,
making a total of 22 hits, some for two bases, and two for three bases.
The High School of Commerce was the next victim, suffering a defeat of
9 to 4. Gaw pitched a good game only allowing five scattered hits, while Newton
Boston Latin followed the High School of Commerce, but fared no better,
'osing 6 to 0. McCourt pitched this game striking out ten men.
M. I. T., '12, proved easy. The score ended 11 to 1, in Newton's favor.
The Boston College Prep. game was to be our fifth straight victory. Score
7 to 1. Five of Newton's runs came in the first inning. .
Roxbury Latin came next, and merely added one more to our list of victories.
Here with six consecutive victories to its credit the team began its down-
hill journey. A decided slump has prevailed since the fourth of May, when we
went down to our first defeat before the Harvard second team, 3 to 2. Since then
we have lost the only four games played. Some were lost through unexcusable
errors, and one through the hardest of luck. These games were with Somerville,
Rindge Manual, Thayer Academy, and Melrose.
If the team takes a permanent brace, and regains its form, it still looks good
enough to carry off the championship, and thus fulfill the expectations that we
had at the beginning of the season. Pull together, everyone!

The Class Teams
HE class teams are what might be called the training ground for 'varsity
- material, and are therefore an important part of the athletic system
Foremost among these are the four football aggregations, which
" began practice early in the fall. The Freshmen reported first, as
usual, followed soon after by the Sophomores. Later in the season
Senior and Junior teams were organized.
The Freshman-Sophomore game came first, being played on November 19
at Clafiin Field. The game ended without any scoring having taken place, and
thus necessitating a play-off. However, the Sophomores had a decided advantage
during the whole game. When the second game came, on November 29, the
Sophomores proved conclusively that they were the superior team, and scored
once in the first half and twice in the second. Two of the goals were kicked.
On December 2, the two upper class teams met to settle the question of
superiority. From the kick-off to the end of the game the Seniors outplayed their
opponents in every department of the game. In the first half 1910 scored two
safeties, and three points as a result of a pretty drop kick by Woods. In the
second period they advanced the ball the entire length of the field in seven
successive first downs for a touchdown. Receiving the kick again they placed
the ball on 1911's two-yard line, when time was called. The game ended with
the score 12 to 0 in favor of 1910.
While football was at its height the girls of 1912 met those of 1913 in their
annual field hockey game. The result was a victory of 1 to 0 for 1912.
On February 11, the twenty-first annual Class Meet was held in the gym-
nasium. Class rivalry was at its height. The lower classes cheered themselves
hoarse, all in order to beat the Seniors! But it was in vaing the Seniors won.
With twenty-nine points to their credit they had a safe lead over the Juniors,
who flnished second with nineteen. The Sophomores easily captured third
place with fourteen, and the Freshmen consoled themselves with one point. In
the Relay races, 1910 was twice victorious, winning from the juniors, and
later from the Freshmen who had defeated the Sophomores earlier in the evening.
On February 15 the Freshmen of Newton and Brookline held a dual meet,
in which Brookline captured the honors with a score of 36 to 27.
The last class rivalry that we can record here is the series of basketball
games. The Senior girls won a very close game from the juniors by a score of
10 to 9, and on the same day the Sophomores easily defeated the Freshmen
28 to li.
Altogether the class games have been very interesting to watch and of great
value to those who participated.
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 53
OR the first time in a number of years Newton was this year repre-
sented by a debating team. Although from the practical standpoint
of victories the year has not been a success, yet it is to be hoped that
E-TD in example it has been a success. Perhaps one of the greatest of
intellectual accomplishments is that of the great orator, and without
a doubt debating is the most interesting and instructive scholarly
this year has served to show Newton High School that one of the
greatest honors is to be able to put a championship debating team in field it
has not been a failure. That we have awakened to this fact was shown by the
attendance at both of the Interscholastic debates in which we engaged.
The first of these debates was held December 17 with Everett High School
at Everett. About seventy people accompanied the team in the special car
which went through to Everett.
The question was: "Resolved, That Labor Unions are more of a menace
than a benefit to the welfare of the United States." F. C. Gates, '10, opened
the affirmative debate for Everett. His speech was elegant in the extreme and
he laid down a policy for his side which was strictly followed by his colleagues,
M. Y. Hughes, '11, and H. C. Archibald, '10. It may be said that their team
showed splendid team work and their delivery was slightly better than Newton's.
It must not be thought, however, that Newton was defeated without a
fight, for the same spirit which makes Newton men everywhere fight until the
end was characteristic here. Paul H. Smart, '10, opened the negative side
with a strong argument on what labor unions had accomplished. He dwelt
upon the rise in wages and in the cost of living, and showed that beyond a doubt
wages had increased proportionally more than the cost of living. Allan S.
Raymond, '10, pointed out that labor unions were essential to a just bargain
between labor and capital. Steven B. Wilson, '10, talked at length upon the
social, moral and intellectual benefits of labor unions. The judges awarded
the decision to Everett.
The team which faced Brookline High on February 25 was well equipped with
arguments to convince the most stolid opponent of ship subsidies. Allan S.
Raymond, '10, opened the affirmative side for Newton by showing the causes
for the deplorable condition of our merchant marine. Ernest Clark, '10, then
showed that a ship subsidy was the only possible remedy, and therefore should
be adopted. Paul H. Smart, '10, concluded the afiirmative side by showing
the benefits to foreign nations of ship subsidies.
The Brookline team consisting of Thurston Clark, '12, Alan M. Hay, '10,
and Philip Russell, '10, was Well balanced and presented arguments as con-
vincing as ours, and the result was in doubt until the decisions were read.
54 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
Outlook for 1910-11
HEN we begin to consider the outlook for another successful year in
- the athletic realm, we naturally pause to survey the material that
is left. But, as is often the case, the veteran teams are defeated,
and at times inexperience conquers experience. When school
4 ' 1 reopens in the fall we will begin to consider more seriously the
football outlook, but it will do no harm to hazard a few surmises
here. Captain Gallagher and Rider are the only veterans left. However, there
were many promising players on the class teams, and on the squad this year,
who will be given a thorough try out next year. If the team receives competent
coaching, with some sort of consistency to it, there is no reason why there should
not be developed a championship eleven that will keep unbroken the record
of the last four years.
After football comes hockey, and our situation is here much the same
as in football. Only two veterans are left, Foote and Burns, but here again
there is a wealth of material.
With Cady and Nash back on the basketball team we hope for a repetition
of this year's successful season. There is no reason why, with an average amount
of support from the members of the school, the basketball team cannot be as
successful as any other team that represents Newton.
Leaving basketball we come to track. Here our prospects are brightest
of all, and with Rider, McLure, Adams and Farnham all "N" men left, the
championship should again fall to the orange and black. In track, our weakness
next year will be in the high jump, as it was this year, and perhaps in the shot put,
where we took all three places this year.
The gymnastic team will again do honor to the school, for without exception
every member is to return to school.
As yet we cannot make any definite forecast regarding baseball, as the
season is only just at its height. Gallagher, Fripp and Sanderson are all "N"
men who will return.
Now we consider the other branch of athletics, that of the girls. In hockey
the prospects could not be better, for only one member of the present team
graduates. Basketball is not quite so fortunate, for many members of the team
have been girls who graduate this june. Their places, however, will be ably filled,
for much interest has been shown in the class games this year, the Freshmen
having an especially strong team.
There are three things that will make the season of 1910-11 successful:
First is spirit, and that is not lackingg second, students, and they are plentiful,
third, ability, and that is in this school, although partially hidden. Combining
these we are going to have a splendid year in 1910-11.

Boys' Debating Club
Officers: President, S. B. Wilson, '10g Vice-President, R. VVest, 'llg Secre-
tary, L. Pratt, '10, Treasurer, D. Swan, '11.
HE Newton High School Debating Club is an organization for the
- promotion of the art of debate and parliamentary procedure among
the members of the school. The membership has not been limited,
and anyone who so desired could become a member by handing
" his name to one of the officers. At the last meeting of the club last
year the above mentioned officers were elected.
During the present year the energies of the club have been directed toward
the development of a debating team, with the result that one was formed, it
being the only one Newton has had since 1906-07. The Club arranged for two
interscholastic debates, one with Everett, the other with Brookline. The
trials for these teams were held under the auspices of the club, and one interclass
debate has been held during the year. All other meetings were for the transac-
tion of business relating to the debates or other club matters.
Girls' Debating Club
0Hicel'S2 President, Helen Gilmore, '10g Vice- President, Mildred Clark, '1Ug
Secretary, Dorothy Gore, '10g Treasurer, Edith Jamieson, 'l0. Executive Com-
mittee: Mildred Clark, '10, chairman, Helen Ganse, '11, Helen Gustin, '10g
Dorothy MacLure, 'l2g Helen Ames, '13.
HE Girls' Debating Society of the Newton High School was established
- early in March, 1909. It was organized by a few girls from the
Senior and Junior classes who were interested in the subject,
under the guidance of two of the teachers, with a membership of
" 1 " about twenty-live.
There have been held, during the year and a half of the club's existence,
some exceedingly interesting debates, whose subjects have ranged from "Tariff,"
to "College Football." However, the club has been rather unfortunate in the
matter of its public ventures. The Assembly Hall debate, which was planned
for the end of last year, had to be cancelled on account of the illness of a member
of the team. This year our challenge to Wakefield was refused, on account of
the pressure of work occuring from their enforced vacation. Accordingly, as yet
we have held no public exercise and have seriously missed the stimulus into the
life of the society which the inspiration of such an occasion would instill.
We hope, however, for larger results next year,- both in the way of general
interest and particular achievement.

The "Cercle Francais "
Officers: President, Carleton M. Burr, Secretary, Dorothy S. Emmons,
Treasurer, Elise M. Dodge.
HE "Cercle Francais" has afforded its members much enjoyment
- as well as benefit in the past year, thanks to the kind help of Mlle.
Bruce, who aside from being the principal factor in the pleasures
of the club, has served most acceptably as the "supreme court of
' " appeal" in case of troublesome constructions and idioms.
There have been held four meetings, and all have been well
attended. The different games and songs which have formed a part of the
programs, have served to better acquaint us with'f'la belle langue des parisiensf'
The dues of ten cents per member and the receipts from the sale of the
artistic posters made by the young ladies have provided the funds necessary
for the support of the club, and moreover five dollars for the Paris Relief Fund.
judging by the way the Juniors have attended the meetings, and by the
interest shown. by them, the third year of its existence will be the "best yet" for
the Cercle Francais.
The German Club
Officers: President, Willard Brackettg Vice- President, Helen Louise Gustin,
Secretary and Treasurer, Mildred Clark.
T the first meeting of the officers of the German Club this year, they
decided that the club must be continued along new lines, if it were
to be a success. They felt that the meetings would be more interest-
ing if they were held in the library, and if everyone could take
partg and with this latter object in view, membership was limited
to Juniors and Seniors. Furthermore, it was thought that with
only five meetings, properly announced, there should be a full attendance at
each one. At the first three meetings, games were played in German, with
great success and merriment. There were word matches instead of spelling
matches, Peter Coddles was revived, and Easter bunnies filled with candy
proved excellent prizes at that season. Each time a lucky member received a
posterg and the new German song books created harmony amongst us. For
the fourth meeting, Miss Julia Schmalz arranged a successful musical entertain-
ment, to which all the school was invited to see its celebrities take part. We
hope to close the year .with a German play, to which all who study German
will be welcome. Although the Seniors made many fair promises, it is the
Juniors who have given the club their support this year. Therefore, with much
confidence and many wishes of good luck, we give over to their ingenuity and
care, the Deutscher Verein.

The Mandolin Club
HE Mandolin Club was organized by Miss Dorothy VValdo of the

The girls belonging were Misses Helen Gilmore, Elizabeth
Tyler, Elizabeth Rice, Dorothy Seccomb, Laura Drost, Vivian
' " Clarke, Dorothy Williams, Mildred Dame, Emily Wittlesey, Ange-
line Hamblen, Helen Hill and Anna Webster. The boys belonging
were: F. H. Greene, Gordon Ewing, C. W. G. Currier, F. D. Day, Carleton Burr.
Carleton Burr was elected leader and Wesley Currier manager of the club,
and it was rapidly coming to the fore as a musical club. VVhen Miss VValdo left
the High School, the club was discontinued, but next year we look for a successful

year. Under Mr. W'alton's able and enthusiastic direction, it was

first and second clarinets, a Hute, and the piano. During April
the orchestra played at several gatherings of school teachers,
scholars, and of the general public.

This year has completed the twenty-eighth volume of the Newton High
School Review. In accordance with past custom the Review has been
issued monthly, the graduation number taking the place of the June one.
Each number has appeared with the same cover, but the graduation issue
will have a new design, and will probably be different in color. A twenty-
eight-page issue has been maintained, with a few exceptions, throughout the
year. The size of the last number is as yet undetermined, but in all probability
it will be much larger. The staff has worked hard and consistently, being
ready with stories whenever called upon. To the other people who have
helped us we can merely say that we appreciate their efforts, and hope they
found their reward in the publication of their contributions. To such as did
not meet with success we say "try again." The outlook for a successful year in
1910-'11 is -very bright. Although many of the regular contributors have been in
the class of 1910, there are many in the other classes who have done good work.
94 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
The Iunior Class
President, Stuart W. Rider. Secretary, Ruth Clark.
Vice- President, Kathryn T ewksbury. Treasurer, Robert R. West.
E AS A CLASS advanced very perceptibly in importance, in our
- own eyes at least, when we found ourselves, the latter part of
last, june, no longer Sophomores. When September came, and
with it our advent into the realm of upper classmen, we felt our
4 ' ' true greatness, and mingled with it a little of our responsibility.
When the call for football candidates was issued, a goodly
number of 1911 men reported, but when the end of the season came, Rider
was our only representative. At half-back he played an excellent game through-
out the whole season and made up by quality for what 1911 lacked in quantity.
The Seniors appeared to have practically two. football teams this year, the
school team and a class team, both of which were superior to any aggregation
that we could place in the field. The Seniors won the class game by a score of
122 to U.
Our prospects for being represented by a majority on the hockey team
were slight, for only two positions remained vacant. Foote and Burns were
our most promising candidates, both playing part of the season, but were
prevented from participating in the league games by fate and accident. At
the close of the season Foote was elected captain of the 1910-11 team.
The basketball season was in progress while hockey was at its height, and
here we were represented by Cady. Track next occupied our attention. We
never really expected to win the class meet, but we managed, as we hoped, to
land second place. The Seniors found no difficulty in winning either the meet
or the relay championship. We finished second with nineteen points, ten behind
1910, and four ahead of 1912. In the triangular meet Rider and MacLure
were both point winners. Rider won the six hundred, and MacLure finished
second in the thousand. MacLure was elected captain of next year's team, and
with the material that is left a winning team should be turned out. It is in track
that our next year's prospects are brightest.
In the girls' athletics we have been better represented than in the other
branch. The hockey team was under the leadership of Miss Allen, 1911, and
it experienced one of its most successful seasons. On this team there was only
one Senior-here at least the Seniors did not predominate. Miss Allen will lead
the team another year, and let us say to another successful year. On the basket-
ball team were five 1911 girls and this means that next year under the leadership
of Miss Paine we are going to have the best girls' basketball team everknown.
We have applied ourselves to other things beside athletics during the
yearg but in quiet application we find little to chronicle. The Seniors are even
now looking forward to that "banquet" that we have striven so industriously
to provide. '
THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 95
The Sophomore Class
President, Warren Tapley. Secretary, Alice Shumway.
Vice- President, Dorothy Wellington. Treasurer, Irving Townsend.
S a class we have undoubtedly done more toward supporting the
reputation of the school than any other class ever did when they
had reached the dignified position of Sophomores which we now
hold. In athletics? Why, yesg here we excelled, that is, when we
met the Freshmen. On the football team? Well, nog we didn't
exactly have anyone jfaying, but Tapley was water boy!
Our class team almost beat the Freshmen in the first game, that is, the
Freshies didn't beat it. But in the second game, oh! there is where we made
our glorious name heard, and actually won our first class game since we entered
High School. Of course we couldn't think of playing the game with the Seniors
for class championship, because of the extreme lateness of the date which those
honorable gentlemen chose to set, somewhere about skating timeg at least that
is the reason we gave for not playing. They unfortunately didn't take it as we
meant it, and even indulged in the liberty of calling us-think of it-"squealers,"
the last thing we would stand for, but however, that did not alter the unad-
visability of playing at such an absurd date!
Nevertheless we figured in athletics again when the 1912 girls defeated those
ot 1913 in hockey by the vast score of 1 to 0. But 1913 needed two goals to win,
so ue consider that it was a glorious victory.
When track came We were a little afraid of the Freshies, this fear being
doubled and trebled by their unrestrained boasting. It was groundless, however,
as the poor Freshmen only won the relay race, an event which we of course
consider of little importance. We secured fourteen points in the meet, while
1913 only secured one straight mark, which kept them from the terrible fate
of a whitewash. It was a glorious victory Cfor the Seniorsj.
During the hockey season we played two games with the Freshmen, but as
they won, we will not say anything about the games, because we are sure everyone
heard enough from them.
We leave our athletic contests with the Freshmen with merely recording
the basketball game. The score was 28 to 6, and of course in our favor, but
unfortunately we indulged in one more basketball game Cone too many for usj,
in which we were beaten by the Seniors. The score was close, being 7 to 5, and
we are perfectly satisfied with our season's basketball record.
We didn't have any members of our class on the school football team,
nor on the hockey team, nor on the boys' basketball teamg but we did have
two on the track team, four on the gym team, three on the girls' hockey, and
one on the girls' basketball team.

96 THE NEWTON HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
The Freshman Class
ERE we are! last but not least-the Freshmen! By far the greatest
class that ever entered the great Newton High! Yes'm, by exactly
one hundred and twenty-six souls in the making do we possess the
30,2 M unique characteristic of being larger than any class that has ever
entered before! Think of it! This includes two hundred and fifty-
five entered in the Technical School, making a grand total of four
hundred forty-seven. Think of it! One hundred and ninety-eight of the
gentler sex and two hundred and forty-nine suffragettes. Think of it!
Here the editor interrupts to ask whether we aren't the least after all? How
can we be if our numbers by far--. Oh! In stature. Well, to be sure-. That
is rather an awkward question, but our combined weights add up precisely
to -13,533.56 pounds, making an average of 97 .48 per scholar. The average age
is 12.794 years. We did not find the average height.
Now as for athletics-. But here the editor interrupts us again, wanting to
know if athletics should come first. Of course they should, athletics are by
far the most important part of school life.
In the first place, we tied the Sophomores in football. Honest Injun!
That is to say, we kept them from scoring. Score, 0-0.
In the Meet we-. Excuse us, another interruption by that confounded
editor. Didn't we play two games with the Sophomores? Yes, but-score?
We don't remember.
In the Meet we licked the Sophomores all to smash in the Relay Race.
Y es'm, we came streaming in 'way ahead of them-'way, 'way ahead,-that
is to say, about 1-50 of a lap, but we were there from the start anyway!
Unfortunately, this did not give us any points. But we even got some of
those,-that is, one. just one. This was due to Growth's remarkable speed in
the 1,000-yard dash, 1,000 yards, just imagine it!
Hockey, basketball, baseball, you don't care to hear all the details. Besides,
we are approaching the end of our page. And those who read this have doubtless
gone through the same studies as we have, so there really is no need to comment
on those either.
So now we will end by telling of the growth of our wonderful class spirit.
When the fetters of grammar school were sundered at last, we couldn't see
how absolutely the horizon of authority had disappeared. A certain timidity
held back even the boldest, but pretty soon we ventured to laugh at funny
mistakes-and there are so many-and committed the terrible crime of passing
a note as often as occasionally. Then we carelessly talked whenever the teacher
left the study room, and once a timid ball game took place in one of these times.
Ah! the Freshman year surely is the happiest in school life!
