Considerable labor has been entailed in compiling the work, but throughout the year we have felt that we were supported by the whole senior class. We wish to extend heart- 'Ki' L felt thanks to Mr. Thomas for his general supervision and for the words he has spoken on behalf of the "Newtonian," by which general interest has been aroused. Thanks are also due to Mr. Adams as well as to Miss Johnson, Miss Fletcher, Miss Owen, Miss Coolidge, and Miss Leighton for their support and aid. space does not permit us to mention the names of all those to whom we are indebted, but let it sutiice to say thatwe are truly grateful 'to all who have helped the undertaking by contributing to the book, orby supporting it in any way. We should not forget to mention the subscribers, the publishers, the en- gravers, and the advertisers in our list of acknowledgments. The board has taken the liberty of changing the name from the "Annual " of last year to the " New- tonian," which latter we hope will be retained by the succeeding classes.

GANSE, ,II cfjPgIq ANY years ago there was begun a mighty race. inlwhich all who Q 'W had arrived by a previous race at the point where it began, might f compete.. In this race there were to be four laps, each to be done in a day,-and in this fact existed the peculiarity of the contestg JQQ9 'xy for it was not a question of time required but of distance covered in the four days. It was to be ,run on the broad road of Learning, which at first was level and straight, but soon became rough, uneven, and winding. All who entered the race were put in different divisions on the road, and these divisions were separated into classes-from which one took one's number. Thus each runner was designated by his division and class: for instance, " Brookline IQI2.H Every day one class started upon the race, and soon came the day when " Newton 1911 " was called. Many gay children started out in this class: . girls in fine new gingham dresses, boys with their first long trousers. Merrily they tripped along the morning of the first day,-sometimes not knowing the way, but seldom heeding the voices of those they met along the road: partly because they did not understand them, as some talked in French, others in German, others even in Greek and Latin, partly because these children did not know that they were there expressly to help them on. When noon came they were very ready for the little rest that was allowed them by the man who rode along in a buggy and superintended the management of the race. Then on again they plodded, growing acquainted with their fellow- runners and sometimes contesting with each other in little sprints. When the evening of the first day came, most of the class " Newton 1911 " lay down to rest, but some who had been lazy at the beginning had to run on to overtake their mates. - Bright and early the next morning they started on again, refreshed and perhaps too confident. Often they were surprised to see the same faces which had greeted them the day before, and during the second day they gradually be- came acquainted with these men and women, who, they found, would help them over many a hard place. The little contests along the way were increased, more friendships were made, and soon every one deemed himself fortunate to have been allotted to this particular class and division. As the evening of the second day drew near many grew weary, but still they plodded on- eager to win that night's rest. On the morning of the third day the race was gaily renewed, for the runners were joyful in the knowledge that if they found hard places there were those to I 24: lf. fit. Q 7 f:'aLq!,fe:vf i' F 5 t P A, v 2 :G THE NEWTONIAN. 17 help them, and that they had many friends. And so they continued eagerly, feel- ing so happy and fresh that they could engage in frequent- contests of different sorts: some sprinted short distances, others stopped for little games and then had to hurry to overtake their classmatesg some tried even debating. Often groups of the runners would go along the way together-talking French or German. And so the third day sped by-perhaps the most joyful of all because the runners had advanced so far on the road that just over the hill they could see those who had started a day ahead of them. One was even fortunate enough to overtake them. When the evening of the happy day came, and Newton 1911 stopped to rest for the night, they were saddened to find that some had fallen behind and. that others had even dropped out of the race altogether. The last lap was begun in a dignified manner, for the runners knew that there was no one ahead of them and that they must finish the race honorably in order to show the other classes how it could be done. As they had gone so, far on their way they thought that they ought to show other divisions what they could do in different ways. Many games were played, and - strange as it may seem - a Rider led them all in the one they called foot- ball. As might be expected in hockey, the Footfej was also the head. In the little sprints Mac lured his fellows on to victory, and the Cambridge division was certainly Tuckered out. When a girl from the Radcliffe division asked why a certain girl could play hockey so well, the reply was: "W'hy, don't you know? She's from Newton 1911 and her name's Allen. That's enough." The girls of the Wellesley division viewed the basketball team with awe, and one cried out: " Gracious, those Newton girls have got an awful Painfejf' Boys from other divisions never could understand why the Newton runners called one of their classmates " B. C." They found that he was newffashioned enough in sports. Everybody from Newton 1911 looked Westward when there was a question to be debated. ,And so the morning of the fourth day has come anzl gone, and the afternoon approaches. No one knows who will win this mighty race, but there are some who must hurry if they wish to get places in the finish. So hurry classmates, and do honor to those who have gone before, to those who have helped us on our way, and to " Newton 1911 !

Long troubles bore he with lessons, within the halls of the high 'W 'J' ' school, Till he had won way to fame, as a member of twelve's famous numbers. Twelve, nineteen twelve, oh tell us, from whence springs your glory so famous? DOWn in the Freshman rooms, say two and seven, for instance, Twelve was announcing its presence by"' I2,S " scribbled high on the blackboards. Up went the eyebrows of teachers, and twelve was requested - " erase it!

Then came the wonderful track-meet, when we, nearly first, secured fourteen! POQr little Freshmen got one-well, that's pretty good for the Freshman! 44 THE NEWTONIAN Boys' basketball? Not this year.

Now, we have grown up a little, and dignity also acquired. Men on the football team-the school couldn't manage without them. Then, at the boys' meet, 'we won ! - we came in first of all others. As to the basketball, well, just take a look at the schedule, There you will find that we won almost every game on the program - Why? because most of the men were chosen from nineteen-twelve players!

McKeen, Secretaryg Robert Baldwin, Treasurer. came to pass that in the fall of the year 1909 the children of Newton Q9 . and the children of the ville thereof and with them other children of the Centre and of the Highlands came together with the children of the Lower Falls and the Upper Falls to the Newton High School. T' ' Then there came some that told Enoch, the Adamsite, ruler of the school, saying, " There cometh a great multitude to thee from all the surround- Ing country." And Enoch lfeared, and set himself to seek his counsellors, Meserve, the melancholy, Poore, the patient, Thomas, the tactful, Bruce, the beaming, Davis, the dignified, johnson, the just, Silloway, the severe, and many others of great valor whose number was, in the days of Enoch, three and thirty. Now there came down upon Claiiin Field a mighty host that was eager to gain greater power. But Dickinson led forth his army and it smote the Wal- thamites, the Needhamites, the Dedhamites and the Brooklineites so that they were sore afraid. When this was all finished, it being the eleventh month of the year, they began to put themselves in array for the coming battle with the other tribes of fhe school. And Browne commandedqto gather together the strangers that were 111 the class of I9I3g and he set them to practising on the parallel bars and the TODCS. All these were under the hands of Browne to become efficient in running. fo they were instructed in leaping and wielding Indian clubs. And Browne said, It is good." And they cast lots, ward against ward, as well the small as the great, to find the most capable. . Now it came to pass after certain days that the tribes met to prove their valor and the greatest was that of 1912. But the tribe of 1913, though some lacking in ,years, acquitted itself bravely. Moreover there was a room in this school where all the tribes gathered to- gether to decide matters of greatest importance. And they determined to raise mUCh money to deck out their soldiers and they demanded from each son and daughter of the tribe the bounty of ten cents. In the beginning of the year Irish was chosen king and he ruled for one Veal' rightly in the sight of all. And he said, "I will shew kindness unto all those Who have shewed kindness to me." Furthermore, he said unto the tribe, " Be- 48 THE NEWTONIAN hold I command that ye shall wear a breastplate, that when men shall look upon thee they shall say, 'Lo, these are they who have come out of the tribulations of the Freshman year and shall proclaim their wisdom even unto the ends of the earth."' And so they made unto themselves breastplates of pure gold. The form thereof was an infinitesimal N whereon was inscribed the year of their Exodus from the school. I I Now there were in this tribe many maidens of exceeding grace and beauty and they strove earnestly to win renown by hurling a ball into a basket, which game, in the language of the tribes, is called basketball. And they won great victories over the Wellesleyites and the first tribe of their school, the Freshman- ites. And there was rejoicing with shouts and singing. It was a custom of the maidens of this tribe, handed down from generation to generation, to walk arm in arm through the corridors of the school. And the sons would stand against the walls talking among themselves. Moreover this custom was disapproved by Enoch and he issued a decree against it saying, " Let not the maidens wander aimlessly through the corridors. Let them be ashamed and confounded for they know not what they do. And verily I say unto you let the boys gather together in the Drill Hall that they may bear targets and spears and shields and bows and so become mighty men of valor." Behold the tribe did wax great in learning so that when Enoch and his counsellors had wrought with them many a day and instilled into them wisdom and understanding they did become great and noble each in his own profession. And Enoch and his counsellors pointed unto them saying, "Lo these be they whom we did chasten sorely for their youthful follies- from whom we did de- mand whole chapters of Latin to be reeled off daily, whose nightly slumbers we did affright with horror tales of Poe-and for whose mathematical brick we did cause them to gather their own straw." These are the Chronicles of the tribe of Thirteen duly and in order set down but many of the acts and doings the scribe hath not written down, neither hath he made record of all the sighs and groanings which they have caused to fall to the lot of Enoch and his counsellors.

Feaster Brown, President, Doris Holmes, Secretary, Kathryn Flanders, Treasurer. iii'-Y?aA1?NLY a freshman! " Almost as bad as some horrible disgrace, and gg vgb in such scathing tones, too. But after a remark of this kind- " You were a freshman once," is the announcement, and then a t i ki chorus of " Can't you get something original? " What is a poor it'-sb'-'ai"g5-" child to do? Also there is the inevitable " Humph, any one would know you are a ' freshmanf 3' " Freshman i' here is in a drawn-out, disgusted voice. This is to go on as long as high schools exist, and as long as it exists- " FRESHMEN H will have to grin and bear it. The first day -how well we remember! " Lost? " " No - only I can't find the room I'm looking for! " You are asked what it is, you tell 5 to your great discomfort and others' amusement, the black number on the door stares you in the face and you hurry in. If you can go a week without getting confused, luck is certainly with you and you are fortunate. Oh, those freshmen! First programs made out, bells ring. Hurrying to and fro, scurrying past upper class men who look disdainfully down. " How do you like your first day at high?" Then you smile sweetly and respond, " Oh fine, but it's terribly mixing." Don't tell me you haven't said that, Thomas Jones, I know better. Then you bumped into an ancient senior who grinned indulgently upon you and allowed you-allowed you-you felt as if he did anyhow--to go on. . Finally recess came and then you sought to look older by handing out money for luncheon instead of having brought it from home. You were left! Dozens' and dozens of others are doing just the same thing and your breath is knocked out, but finally your purchase is made and victorious you wend your way amongst the crowd to your fellow sufferers, only to find them -happily engaged in talk- ing to a sophomore! i Alas, what shall you do? You then wander manfully about with a deviled- ham "sandwich " in one hand and a large piece of chocolate cake in the other. There is a friend, a junior whom you can speak to-that person is standing all alone. You walk boldly up - stung again 3 it is not who you think it is: out in the cold again. But finally your misery is at an endiand you hear a bell, cramming the remains of the food into your mouth, and hurrying upstairs as if it were a case of life and death, you once more enter your room which you have heard termed a - home room, perfectly natural but you didn't know, innocent. 52 THE NEWTONIAN Two more periods -then you run right home with a large number of books and compare the length of the studies to those at " Grammar School." So awful, the very idea of six pages in history, it is an outrage Qthis just for the sake of talkj then-a sophomore squelches you by saying, "Look at this nineteen to read over. for English!" and again you wish you hadn't spoken. I Mother greets you with a happy smile. " How was the first clay? " Per- fectly beautiful and all that. " Say, can I take the Review?" What is this? " Oh, the loveliest book-every month it has stories in it, we write 'em, and it only costs a dollar for the year." We are told to ask father. Deep groans. But anyhow a freshman at high school is " some class " and with a shocked, disap- proving glance it is demanded where we heard that awful slang. Days go on and the masculine gender go out for football, greeting their wor- ried parents with .scratches and cuts, and bruises and bumps. The team is chosen and you mournfully watch from the grandstancl, don't you, Thomas? We're sorry, but it is seen thus every year. Days flew since the first of the year: now they whirl. After football and the first cold days- lessons grow -- " perfectly terrible!" And in history the awful crisis of handing in the many topics, carefullyf ?j written and satisfactorilyf Pj complete. But on being asked where the expedition of Datis and Artaphernes went, after having been at Eretria, one brilliant scholar, who thought that he could "bluff " said, " Nowhere, " but was met with " Well- I don't think that was the name of the place." W , At the first of the quarter marks were high, but how appallingly low they can drop! What is the reason? Track, hockey and basketball is the answer. At. 1.45 sharp all the girls are out at the gym to shoot goals on to guard, to get on the team or to-try. Team chosen: sophomore-freshmen game played with a score of I8 to 9. How very pleasant. ' Of course there was the freshmen boys' meet against the Waltham boys and of course Newton won.

All nature was hushed in silent awe of the QV' "WFS, approaching evening. Even the sea was calm, and lapped the cold, dull cliffs caressingly. From the hills came the clear, distinct tinkle of the sheep-bells, and now and then a soft bleating from some lamb, 'N' Lil' perhaps separated from the fold. On the edge of the cliff, silently watching the glorious sun sink below the horizon, sat a young shepherd and shepherdess. The boy was a strong, sturdy-looking fellow, with something in his face, that one would not expect to find in a country boy. He turned from the setting sun, and looked tenderly, but sadly at the young girl beside him. He studied the strong face of the little shepherdess, a face so scorched and browned by the sun. and wind that one might easily imagine her to belong to some southern race. The boy tried to divine her thoughts as she intently watched the beautiful scene nature had spread out before her. She sat leaning against a bush, her hands folded in her lap, and her large dark eyes fixed on the sea. She wore an old blue skirt, and a tattered hat was lying beside her on the grass. I-Ier little brown feet were bare, but Lisbeth was used to this, and thought nothing of shoes or stock- ings. Her lips were parted, showing a row of perfect white teeth, her great charm. Even the darkness of her complexion and tangled wealth of clusky hair, could not disguise the regularity of her features, and her graceful form, as she sat on the cliff beside the little shepherd boy. 'These children were very com- panionable, as they guarded their sheep together day after day. It had been their greatest ambition, as they grew up together, living side by side, to see the won- ders of the city. And that morning he had received a letter from thatxgreat city, Paris, from an unknown uncle, who wished to visit him, and then take him back to the city when he returned. And how excited he had been, as he ran to Lis- beth's little cottage to tell her the glorious news. She was happy that her friend should have this wonderful opportunity, and with tears in her eyes she told him how glad and proud she was to have her playmate go to live in the big city. But how the poor little shepherdess had cried, cried as if her heart would break, when she was left alone. But there was no trace of tears, or the storm which had waged within her, as she sat with him on the cliff. She must not make him sad, for his parting must be of the most joyful kind. Presently the boy spoke. "Thee'll miss me, Lisbeth, when I've gone to the great city?" ' " Ah, Ronald," she answered tremulously, " I shall be left all alone to guard the sheep, and I know not what I will do without theef' " But thee'll have Jack, Lisbethf' THE NEWTONIAN ' 55 " Ah, yes, but ,Tack cannot take thy place," she answered sadly, looking up the hill, where jack, their faithful shepherd dog, lay guarding the sheep. "Lisbeth," he said, taking her hand, "Fil come back to thee when I've grown to be a man, and take thee to the big city, and thee'll marry me then, Lisbeth? Thou knowest I love thee, lass." , " But will thine uncle let thee come, Ronald? " " I'1l come back to thee anyway, if I have to run away," he answered almost fiercely. " And thee'l1 not forget me, Lisbeth?" " Ah no, Ronald, I'll never forget thee." The boy seemed satisfied, and there was a long silence before he spoke again. " Sing to me, Lisbeth." . D And the girl sang, in a voice of unusual beauty, which rang out over the sea, and echoed among the hills. The boy listened spellbound to her marvellous voice, deep with feeling, clear and rich. She sang an old ballad of sunset and evening, of sad parting, and her voice rang with happiness, then sank with great pathos to a quaint, sweet melody. She sang on and on, her heart and soul in the song, and when at last she sang of the parting, the plaintive sadness of her voice made the boy brush his hand quickly across his eyes. With a little catch in her voice Lisbeth stopped singing, and sank back on the grass, struggling to conceal her feelings. ' ' A week from that evening, Lisbeth lay on the hillside, alone with the faithful dog. It was midnight, and the girl and dog were spending the night under the stars guarding the sheep. Every night was spent thus, and the girl knew nothing different. She was not afraid, but very sad, for Ronald had left that morning for the city with his uncle. Every now and then the dog would lick her face and hand, as if he understood, and sympathized with his little mistress. The moon was high in the heavens, and cast a silvery light on the fields and hills, and on Lisbeth stretched gracefully on the ground with the dog lying beside her, his head against her arm. Every day and night Lisbeth guarded the sheep. She had no father and she and .her mother lived alone in a small cottage. Ronald had neither mother nor father, but had lived with a kind old lady, who had taken him when a small .baby, after the death of his mother and father: Lisbeth went to see this kind old lady for a few minutes each day, and they would talk together sadly, about Ronald so far away, and compare letters which they received from him once every week. A ' But we must hurry on with our story, and sum up the next six years in a few words. Ronald grew into manhood, a fine-looking, splendid young man, who was la great pride to his uncle in every way. He was bright and alert, and took up his uncle's business in Paris, making it a greater success than it had ever been before. He went out a great deal socially -in Paris, especially to musical affairs. He had not forgotten Lisbeth, but was remembering every hour of 56 THE NEWTONIAN the day, the promise he made to the little shepherdess on the hillside. But a great struggle was going on within him. Could he marry Lisbeth, and bring her as his wife to Paris? He saw plainly that his uncle would never consent to this, and that Lisbeth could not in any way lit into his present life. But his promise. And yet, why should his promise, made to a shepherdess when he was very young, be binding? He loved the little shepherd girl as a sister, but could he marry her? One evening while dining with some friends, Ronald heard them talking about a young' lady, who was to make her debut the next evening at a concert. -They spoke of her wonderful voice, of how every one believed her to be the best singer of the age, and of how the greatest singing teacher in Paris had heard her singing, while he had been travelling through some country town, and realizing the beauty of her voice had taken her to Paris, where, under his instruction, she had become the greatest of all Parisian singers. Ronald, who was a great lover of music, secured tickets for himself and his uncle, and the next evening they were in the large concert hall, waiting expectantly for the great soprano, " La Belle Amelie." Soon a hush fell on the audience, and the great singing teacher appeared, followed by a beautiful young girl, whom he introduced to the audience as La Belle Amelie. Every one was spellbound at her beauty, and before she sang a note, the audience burst forth into loud and long applause. To-night she sang more beautifully than ever before. She thrilled her audience as only a glo- rious singer can. When the song ended, it was useless for her to try to leave the platform. She thanked her audience again and again, and promised to sing later on in the evening. Ronald was still and rigid. Had this wonderful young singer gone? She had captivated him, her singing had awakened in him memories, regrets. She reminded him in some strange way of Lisbeth. He saw the little shepherdess. with her 'ragged blue dress and bare feet. But what nonsense, he thought, that this beautiful woman should remind him of little Lisbeth. La Belle was invited everywhere. No dinner, no ball was a success without the celebrated singer, whom all Paris was making an idol of. Ronald met her again and again, and -they grew to be good friends. More than that Ronald was falling in love with the beautiful La Belle. It was at a large reception that he told her of his love, asking her if he could ever hope to have his great love returned. But what had come over him? Suddenly he saw a vision before him, a vision of a little shepherdess sitting on a cliff, sad and alone. He turned pale and almost staggered against the wall. " La Belle," he said weakly, " there is something I must do before I am even worthy to ask for your love." Turning quickly, he strode from the room, 'leaving La Belle startled and surprised. At this point we must disclose the identity of La Belle Amelie, if you, have not already guessed who she is. La Belle is no other than our little shepherdess, Lisbeth. You already know how she happened to be in Paris, singing under I THE NEWTONIAN 57 the great master who had advised her to take the French name, La Belle Amelie, in making her debut as a singer. As Ronald left the room, Lisbeth heard him say, almost fiercely, "I must go back to little Lisbeth, she alone can set me free." Lisbeth was overjoyed that he was going back to the little shepherdess, and no sooner had she realized his intentions, for she had recognized and loved him from the first, than she went quickly to her hostess, and, excusing herself, left the reception hurriedly. Every minute counted. She must reach their child- hood's country home before Ronald, and be there to meet him. He had proven himself true to his promise, and was willing to marry his little playmate if she would not release him from his promise. I-Ie was now to have his reward. Not stopping even to go to her apartment, she directed her driver to the Station, and was soon on the train, steaming towards her old home by the sea. In less than two hours' time the great La Belle Amelie was dressed as Lis- beth the shepherdess, and was standing on that same cliff, in the moonlight, where so many years ago she had sung a parting song to the little shepherd boy. Lisbeth was very happy, for she knew in a few moments, that a big well known figure would be striding across the fields to the cliff, where he had come to fulfil his promise of so many years ago. She threw herself down on the ground, as she used to guard the sheep through the long nights. Her mind wandered back to those days, and she hardly heard Ronald's voice as he called across the fields, " Lisbeth, Lisbeth." But Ronald was coming quickly toward the cliff. He was wondering what Lisbeth would be like, and unconsciously he found himself comparing Lisbeth and La Belle Amelie. How very different they were, and still in so many ways alike. His mind was in a turmoil, and he could not decide what to say to Lis- beth. Probably she had forgotten all about him. He was praying that she would no longer care for him, and would release him from his promise. Then he would go back to his singer in Paris, and tell her all. All these thoughts surged through his mind as he walked toward the cliff to meet Lisbeth. Ah, there she was, guarding the sheep. The same Lisbeth that he had left years ago. I-Ie saw a gray figure and a white sunbonnet rise gracefully and come toward him. Why did he feel that strange thumping at his heart? What sort of a girl was he going to find, who held his destiny in her hands? "Lisbeth, lass, is it thee, indeed?" he said, falling into their old childish " thee and thou."' " I am glad to see thee." " And I, Ronald," she answered softly. " Sit down here on this rock, Lisbeth. Dost remember how we sat here, long ago?" " Yes, I remember," replied the girl in a low voice. The sunbonnet covered so much of her head that Ronald had not yet caught a full view of her face. " Dost remember the day we parted, Lisbeth? 3' 58 THE NEWTONIAN , " Yes," she said, bending her head, " but should we recall it now? " " No, it is not wise, but, Lisbeth," he stammered, " pity me, hear my story and decide." . " But Hrst tell me, Ronald, didst ever love me, as I loved thee?" "Ah, yes, Lisbeth, I loved thee truly, loved thee truly-until lately." " And now thou lovest anotherf' she said in a trembling voice. " Alas, I do, with all my heart and soul. Let me go, Lisbeth," he said N hoarsely, set me free." " Good-bye then, Ronald, good-bye, I set thee freef' He seized her hand, and drew her gently into the moonlight. " Before I go, let me see thy face, Lisbeth, thy sweet face, which has haunted my memory so long." Lisbeth slowly untied the strings of the white sunbonnet, raised her head and looked full at Ronald, her face beautiful in the silver moonlight. For a moment Ronald gazed at her in astonishment, and staggered against the rocky slope. A strange dizziness had come over him. 1 g "What is it? " he cried. , Lisbeth, frightened and repentant, reassured him. "It is I, Lisbeth, La Belle,-don't you see, Ronald? " Then Lisbeth explained all to him, her education, her success, her meeting and knowing him, but not wishing to let him recognize her until he had proved his faithfulness to Lisbeth, the shepherdess. " And now," she finished, " as Lisbeth, I cannot let you go-and as La Belle, I give you up to her." n - "Oh, my little Lisbeth, my darling," he cried, "this happiness is too great, it cannot really be true,-Lisbeth, La Belle, am I not dreaming? How could I have been deceived so long, whose are those eyes but Lisbethls, but where is Lisbeth's dark skin? Surely this fair complexion of La Belle wouldn't remind one of the little sliepherclessf' ' "How unlovely I must have been," said Lisbeth demurely. " No, no, Lisbeth, newv' unlovely, but now so beautiful, that your old com- panion did not recognize his little shepherdess when he melt her as a celebrated young lady in the city." And under the silver moon they wandered, hand in hand, telling the old, old story so oft repeated yet ever new. , .THE NEWTONIAN El Seniors lament BY Mftnourznmz JAMES, ,II 1vA F L lim i HEN autumn painted every tree In colors all aglow, And all the birds of varied kind Flew south to 'scape the snow, We felt that June would never come, And longed to have it here, In order to have all the fun .

A windingwav led down from the castle to the sunny green valley below, and a silvery river 5332 595 flowed past the crag and away, away through the fields till it came 5'g!'9YJE:' to a city with glittering roofs. A sight of surpassing beauty it was, when the setting sun shone upon the little castle, turning to gold the slender tur- rets and the ravens circled and circled, black against the evening sky. In the castle there lived a Child with yellow curls, and an old, old Dame. All alone they dwelt there and seldom spoke to any other human being, but the Child was as happy and contented as the day was long. The ravens were his and every morning at sunrise they would wheel through'the air from the distant places where they nested, and settle down on the casement. Then the Child would throw open the window and would stroke their glossy necks and laugh with de- light as they cackled and cawed. At the edge of the cliff, close under the castle wall was a wonderful little garden, and here, among the tangled roses and sweet lilies grew a little plant with curling tendrils and small, white flowers of exquisite fragrance, that filled the castle with sweetness. The Child loved it above all the other flowers and tended it carefully. And it was called the Flower of Happiness. Many a long day did the Child spend in the garden at his pretty plays until the setting of the sun, and then the ravens would come again, circling through the rosy glow, to the window ledge. And after they had flown away, cackling, he would stand by the casement and watch the purple shadows creep silently into the valley, and the stars peep one by one, till the sky fairly shimmered with bright- ness-till below all was dark, save the city-the city of Worldly Delights- THE NEWTONIAN 61 glittering in the distance. Sometimes the sound of music and revelry came float- ing up from the city, and the Child looked and listened with wonder. But better he loved to look at the marvel of stars above, and the Dame would say, " See, Child, it is God's flower bed! " And some days it would rain in the valley, and then the great, soft clouds would come low down around the little castle and sweep slowly by with their soft, pearly bosoms, and the Child loved that, too, and thought it wondrous beau- tiful. Winding along beside the river and following its curves through the valley, ran a white roadway. Many travellers passed over this road, old men and youths and laughing ladies and many more, all journeying onward towards the glittering city. Some hurrieclalong as fast as they might with their eyes ever on the golden roofs, but often they walked more slowly and their eyes were fastened on the ground as if they were searching for something there in the grass by the roadside. The Child, leaning over the garden wall far above, often watched these pil- grims and wondered what could be their mission and what their quest. But the old Dame, in answer to his questioning, only knew that they were one and all searching for a flower, a marvellous flower as she had heard, but could tell no more. i ' Once in a while a thirsty, dust-stained traveller would climb up the steep path to the little castle and ask for food, and while the old Dame hastened to bring refreshment, the Child would stand by the stranger and look at him with awe. One day a man with a tall peaked hat knocked at the castle gate and asked if he might come in and rest himself. So the Dame threw open the door and the stranger entered, and the Child by her side looked at him with wonder. The cloak on his back was dusty and patched with twenty patches, each one of a different color, and elf locks of sandy hair fell from under his tall hat. His long face was the color of old parchment, with tiny wrinkles innumerable, and his little eyes, set close in by the high bridge of his nose, seemed ever peering and searching. His mouth, the Child thought, reached nearly from ear to ear, and as he sat and refreshed himself, the Child came up and stood beside the old Dame. Then the man opened his great mouth and began to tell of many strange things and of the wonders he had seen in his travels. " For I have travelled," quoth he, " around the world as many times as there are patches on my cloak, and if you would know how many that may be e'en count them yourself." V And all the time he had searched, as he said, for the Flower, the marvellous Flowery yet never a trace had he found. Many and many a person had he met on the same quest, but the ones whom he had seen who had been successful, these he could number on the fingers of one hand. They could not help him on his THE NEWTON IAN ... MW . ,. -yi .,f,. .- V- W- -?f --Zhi fv L e gg I , I ' ' 'WW !'

THE STRANGER EXIAMINES THE FLOWER THE NEVVTONIAN Q 63 search beyond bidding him " Godspeed " and a happy ending to his journey. But the others had given him much advice, and one had told of a city with glit- tering roofs, called the city of Worldly Delights, and perchance the llower might be found there. So it was thither that he was wending his way. As for the Flower itself, its beauty was said to be exquisite, fair and with a centre of goldg and its perfume gave Eternal Youth. People call it the " Flower of Happiness." Upon this the Child jumped up. " Why, Sir," he said, " it groweth here, here in a corner of my garden! " " So!" cried the stranger, and his little eyes grew round as the holes of a Woodpecker in a dead tree, 5' that cannot be, for I have not found it with searching through the whole world. But run and fetch the blossom and we shall see." ' So the Child ran and brought a tiny Bower and laid it in the horny hand of the stranger. And he knotted up his forehead and screwed his great mouth around and turned the dainty blossom with his coarse, brown finger. Finally he said, " This is not the true Flower of Happiness, Child. It is pretty and has a sweet fragrance and is doubtless well enough for a child. But it is not large enough, the plant I am looking for has Howers as large as soup plates. And I should know, for I have travelled over the world for fifty years, searching so diligently that I have never taken my eyes from the roadside. How- ever, this is very well for a child." And he crushed the little iiower, let it drop on the floor, and so continued his journey. But the Child, who shall say 'how his heart bled? And he pondered and pondered on what the stranger had told him. So the months passed, and little by little a change came over the Child. The sun no longer seemed so golden to him, the flowers in the garden no longer so sweet, and the ravens-how harsh their cackling sounded! At night when he stood at the casement it was not the stars that he looked at, but the far-off glare of the city, and his face became clouded. One night the old Dame came and stood beside him at the window, and she felt very sad, for she understood. And she placed her poor, shaking hand upon his shoulder, but he did not turn. Then suddenly, "Ah!" he cried, "I must go! I too must seek for the Flower, the true Flower! " And her hand fell from his shoulder as he swung around, but his face had lost all happinessg only desire dwelt there. ' And so it came to pass that the Child set out upon his journey along the dusty road. He travelled far, through many distant lands, through pleasant green meadows, and the noise and turmoil of cities, searching, searching, and never tarrying, though he was often sorely tempted. Those who dwelt in the 64 THE NEWTONIAN city of Worldly Delights begged him with earnestness to stay with them in their glittering city, and had wound their silky, snake-like arms about him, so that he had almost abandoned his search, but at length he had escaped. So he fared on. And he met many a pilgrim on the same quest, and these gave him much advice as to the size and the sort of the Flower, but very few could he find who had themselves been successful in the search. These few, how- ever, gave him refreshment and "Godspeed " on his journey. Once he passed the great house of a rich man, and on the outer gate was a flaming sign-- " I have found the Flower of Happiness." But the iron gate was locked, and a perfume came over the wall to the traveller which was not as that of the Flower, but as that of a well-filled larder. So he passed on. And the weeks linked themselves into months, and the months into years, until the Child was no longer a child, but an old, old Man. And still the Flower was not his, and he continued his searching. At last he felt sure that he could not journey on much longer, for his steps were feeble, and very often he needs must lean heavily on his staff. So he bethought him of the pleasant valley and of the little castle where he had been so joyous, and of the sweet Flower in the garden. Ah, the Flower! Even if it were not' as large as a soup plate, it was very dear to him, and perchance, his heart, grown wiser, whispered this might be his true Flower of Happiness. S0 he yearned for it and travelled faster every day that he might reach it the sooner, but the way was rough, and longer that he took a roundabout road to escape the silky, snake-like arms of those who dwell inthe city of Worldly Delights. At last, one evening, he came to the pleasant green valley, and in the distance the rosy setting sun burnished' the hundred turrets of the little castle till, they gleamedi like goldagainst the skyg and the ravens circled and circled. The sight was surpassing fair, and the heart of the old Man warmed within him and he hastened his tottering steps and the light of joy shone from his eyes. So he climbed the little path up to the castle, and every turn he needs must stop and regain his panting breath, and the thought of the Flower in the garden gave him new strength. At last he reached the topmost 'step and with shaking hands he lifted the screaming, rusty latch of the gate, and entered. Ah, how his heart beat as he made his way to the little garden in the ruddy evening after-glow, and how his old hand trembled as he felt in the deepening twilight for the little Flower! A spider had woven its heavy web over the spot where once it grew, but he pushed it eagerly away, and the sweet fragrance thatarose brought the light of joy into l1is face. At last he had found his true Flower of Happiness.

On October 28, 1646, John Eliot, the white preacher from Roxbury, first taught the In- dlans as they were gathered under the trees at Nonantum Hill. 'N' " It is a great step from this first gathering two' hundred and sixty years ago to the present time when there are seven thousand pupils in the public schools, yet the change was gradual. For the first twenty-five years, as Newton was a part of Cambridge, the school privileges were provided by that town. According to the Massachusetts " ' ' 'd t hrb whom an law, every town of fifty families was required to provi e a eac e y y and every town of one hundred families was required to provide a school with an instructor capable of preparing youths for the University. It is certain that even at this time the school was one of the best, for an early writer remarks, " By the side of the Colledge is a faire Grammar Schoole for the training up of young schollars, and fitting them for Acadenncall lerning, that still, as they were judged ripe, they might be received into the colledgef' The ount of its great distance from the child could be taught, school was poorly attended, however, on acc families in Newton, so later in 1649 when Newton separated from Cambridge, a school house sixteen feet long and fourteen feet wide was built nearer by. of this time no doubt had plenty of good' fun, for a story The boys and girls is told about some of their pranks. One roguish boy on the roof of the building let a hook and line down the chimney and another rogue in the room fastened the hook to the schoolmaster's wig which immediately proceeded to disappear up the chimney. i The report of March Io, 1701, is of interest for it 'shows that the schools were not free,'that is, all children were admitted, but the parents had to pay tui- tion for their children, as for instance, three pence per week for lessons in reading.

' ln 1859, by vote of the town a real high school was to be established and placed on a lot of land next to Mr. C1aHin's estate on Walnut Street. There was considerable doubt in the minds of a good many whether this would succeed or not, and so it was tried only as an experiment. It started with seventy-five pupils, and under the leadership of able principals and faithful teachers it in- creased and maintained a standard of work which has placed it among the rank of the finest high schools in the country. In 1898 a modern and well equipped building was built which was considered the best in the State, yet nevertheless in 1909 another building had to be built ro meet the needs of over one thousand pupils and forty-five instructors. i G Thus has grown up a system of public schools, which has done a great deal toward making Newton one of the finest residential suburbs of Boston. 1In Desperation BY DOROTHY FLETCHER, ,II ,gg-Qgfjpf 'VE tried to write some pretty rhyme, Some symphony of summer time.

Accordingly let us not measure our attainments by stan- dards established under the influence of our own supervision, but let us, rather, gauge our development by the successes of our fellow beings. Let us measure ourselves by the world, not measure the world by our ideals. If such were the case with all men, the trite saying of the Quakeress would soon die of clisuse. If our friend the Socialist had measured his ethical standards by the sta"- dards of the world at large, there would have been no explosion. If each indi- vidual of the historic mob had taken time to consider the viewpoint of that impar- tial onlookerQ the world, injustice would have been supplanted by justice. If the financially embarrassed church member had compared his personal wants with the need which the Church had for his specie, his economy would probably have begun at the grocer's. - The viewpoint of humanity, in general, is broad, all embracing and more or less sympathetic. Doubtless our own ideals do not coincide with this universal 68 THE NEWTONIAN standpoint, but our individual position is a factor in determining the viewpoint of humanity fWordsworth to the contrary notwithstandingj. The broader weave, the broader conception we have of the correct application of sympathy. Sympathy incorrectly applied is fatal. - If it be applied correctly, it has power to turn dark- ness to light. Applied in a wholesale manner it is extremely dangerous, given in small doses, it is, oftentimes, ineffective, but administered with a whole-hearted sincerity, it is all powerful. Convince a man that he has the heart-felt sympathy of his friends, and he will face the world to win. I do not refer to this semi- sincere pathos which we are apt to display when a friend is in need-I do mean, however, the creation of an atmosphere which will make the individual know that we are backing him. I We are all mortals, subject, more or less, to the same temptations. It is strange, therefore, that there is a lack of direct fellow-feeling, one human being for another. A murder is committed-organized society is properly shocked- gossips toy with the subject for a while, and then it is abandoned by all except the reporters. 'The pungent atmosphere, created by the crime, is shunned by society-so individuals more susceptible to it come into direct contact with its degrading influence, demoralizing because of its inhumanity. This breeds crime. Organized society had a good chance to lessen this poisonous influence, but it failed to make good. It had no sympathy for such. In the case at hand, com- passion for one's fellow beings, irrespective of class, could have produced a more wholesome atmosphere. Theoretical sympathy is prevalent everywhere. Sympathy in direct practice is extremely hard to find. We expound our doctrines of sympathy at great length -but when it comes to downright application of our sympathetic principles- we are wanting, or have pressing engagements elsewhere. The more assistance a man needs, the colder the world becomes. This is so because the person in great need of sympathy is not in concord with th viewpoint of humanity. As soon as a man alienates himself to the teachings of humanity, andceases to measure himself by the standards established by his fellows, the world gives him a cold shoulder. On the other hand, however, if a man incorporates his position with the position of humanity, the world welcomes him as a long lost brother. The 'chance is not given to every man to accomplish this. In such a case, it is the duty of society to accomplish the feat. This done and the viewpoint of humanity becomes all embracing and extremely sympathetic. In time, we will learn to scan our brother men more gently, and to recognize the fact that " to step aside is human." THE NEWTONIAN 69 A flbiss Simmons ano the Ttfloao By MARY ADAMS, ,II DELE, her chin in her-hands, was sitting on the fence at the north end of the Campus, whistling softly. She had remained in that atti- A'-Q tude for half an hour, gazing abstractedly at a 'large brown toad, that was ho ping back and forth alon the road, when suddenl the pucker disappeared from between her eyes, her whole expression brightened, and she stared more interestedly at the toad. " Why didn't I think of that before? " she exclaimed. " It will be just bully if I can onl work it in all ri ht." Savinff this she umned down from her Jerch Y IQ' . s. J I l and quickly enfolding the toad in her handkerchief, started back to the dormitory. . . I The cause of all this thought was not far distant. Indeed, at tiat very moment Miss Simmons was coming sedately down the drive, and Adele quickly . . . , . ff hid the handkerchief behind her back, before responding to the teachers sti nod. The trouble had been brewing all the year, for, as Adele expressed it, the ainst her since that first week of school old hen had always had a grudge ag when Adele had tied the lacings of Mildred Wl1ite's sailor-suit to the back of her chair. Mildred, rising to recite, had taken the chair along with her, and quite, a stir had been created among the appreciative pupils of the history class. Since then it had been first one thing and then another, but war had not actively broken out until the week before. Miss Simmons had asked Adele to report to her at the close of recitations for misbehavior in class, and the teacher was just waxing eloquent in her righteous indignation, when the door opened and in came the Rev. Arthur M. Tuttle, a most pious and saintly man for whom Miss Simmons had a great respect and admi- ration. She rose immediately to greet him, and Adele, who had modestly drawn back at his entrance, suddenly could not resist the great temptation which pre- sented itself. Quickly and noiselessly she removed the chair from its position behind the desk, and when, a moment later, Miss Simmons bent to resume it, the poor, outraged history teacher sank gracefullyC?j to the floor, ejaculating in high and stentorian tones," Merciful heavenslu ritied beyond measure to find such language coming The clergyman, hor from one whom he had always considered a model of goodness, had Hed hastily from the room. and all of Miss Simmons' pent up wrath had been vented on demure little Adele. Moreover, the history teacher had gone to headquarters with her story, fthe result being that all of Adele's privileges had been peremptorilv W ithdrawn. As if that were not enough, Miss Simmons had made an example 70 THE NEWTONIAN of the girl in class. All the hardest questions, dates, locations of battlefields, extent of conquests, all fell to her lot. That very day there had been visitors in the history class, and Adele, who really did know her lesson, was besieged with questions in the beginning of the history which she had forgotten long before, and attacked so often and with such force, that she hardly felt sure she knew what her own name was. As for the visitors, her face flamed as she thought what their opinion of her must be. That day's experience was the last straw, and Adele decided that it was high time something was done. And so she had spent a most earliest thirty minutes perched on the fence, before forming a satisfactory plan. q That night it poured and the longed for opportunity was presented. Miss Simmons, who had a great aversion to animals in general and toads in particular, was to speak in the Town Hall on " Woman's Rights." Adele and a number of friends, having nothing better to do, had decided to attend the meeting, antici- pating a great deal of amusement from their stern and severe history teacher, at least. Now Adele's plan was this. She meant to secrete the toad in Miss Sim- mons' umbrella, with the hope that when the teacher opened it after the meeting, in all probability surrounded by admiring qsuffragettes, the sudden descent of the unfortunate toad might at least bring the same words with which she had shocked the clergyman, or others equally objectionable, to her lips. "Besides," Adele said to her friends, " you never know what will happen." And that was just it. As usual, the unexpected happened. After the toad had been unceremoniously thrust into his temporary resting place, Miss Simmons suddenly bethought herself of an important errand which she ought to have done, and fearing that the store, which was just across the street, would be closed after the meeting, she decided that she had time enough before her speech to hurry across and make her purchase. When she opened her umbrella, the long-suffering toad did not do the expected act and suddenly descend before her astonished eyes. No indeed! As Miss Simmons opened the umbrella over her head, the abused animal with one jump landed squarely on top of her hat, all unbeknown to its owner. As the hat was exceedingly plain and made of light colored straw, its new occupant found himself a very conspicuous object of decoration and settled down comfortably, too frightened to move. . Miss Simmons made her purchase and hurried back to the hall, where she immediately went on the platform for her speech. This much I can say of it- she certainly brought down the house! The whole audience never took their eyes from her head and it was evident thatithey were greatly impressed. As for a certain bunch of girls in the back of the room, they stuffed handkerchiefs, ties, hair-ribbons, anything,,into their mouths, and looked actually agonized, in their endeavor to preserve .straight faces. I have no doubt but what the speech itself was extremely forceful and con- THE NEWTONIAN 71 vincing, but the minds of the audience looked above and beyond that. And then when the poor toad, becoming shy and self-conscious before the admiring throng of eyes directed upon him, began to Hdget, and Finally made a complete tour of the hat, the delight of those people was too intense for words! 4 When she had finished, the applause broke forth. They clapped and clapped her for rather they clapped the toadj but she knew no difference and came back three or four times to bow-and incidentally the toad bowed, too! It was all in the papers the next day and occupied an important place on the front page. The whole town was laughing over it, and it was said that prob- ably the cause of Miss Simmons' amusing ,hat decoration would always remain in doubt. Adele read the whole article through with an exceedingly grave countenance, albeit her mouth twitched a little at the corners and her eyes danced. p "I-Iumph, won't 'be much doubt in her mind about it," she muttered, gazing solemnly at a caricature sketch of Miss Simmons as she appeared on the platform.

JN! ' l' All alone lived Annemeekee, With no squaw to keep his Wigwam, Cook his bison, build his camp-fires, For he loved no Indian' maiden. Loved no maid of the Dacotahs, But the evening star, Osseo. Every evening, as the sun set, Sinking in the shining Water, Turning all the waves to crimson, Staining all the clouds with splendor, Annemeekee, from his Wigwam Watched the twilight, stealthy, creeping, Chase the colors from the landscape, Watched the shadows deepen, deepen. Then appear the star of evening, Shining clear above the pine trees, Shining clear in the smooth Water Of the lake, reflected in it. But one evening Annemeekee Watched in vain for his Osseo, For the clouds were dark and angry, And the star Was hidden from him. Then the Big Chief, looking upward, In his grieving, and his longing, A THE NEWTONIAN Prayed aloud to the Great Spirit, To the Holder of the Heavens, Prayed to see once more Osseo, See his darling, his beloved. As he prayed, the sky grew darker, And the lightning and the thunder Tore to rain the sullen cloudbanks, Shook the ground, and lashed the water. In his anguish Annemeekee, Crouching there with his face hidden, Cried aloud, " Why did I do this? Now is the Great Spirit angry. Never more in early evening Shall I watch for my beloved." As he spoke the thunder lessened, And the ground had ceased its trembling Then the Big Chief Annemeekee At his feet saw shining star-dust, Scattered star-dust, brilliant, glistening. As he looked, the glowing embers Moved and shaped themselves together, And a maiden, tall, and stately, And as beautiful as evening, Rose before him, smiling, beckoning. Evening's shadows were her tresses, And her eyes the stars of heaven. ' Then did Annemeekee lead her To his Wigwam by the lakeside, 'Neath the pine trees, by the lakeside, And he called her Nenemoosha, Spirit of the Star of Evening. 49 Q iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikkiiiiiiii 2522? 5555 55 555555 55 5555 ririig 55 5555 555 55 1915 55 555555 Ube llbassing uf Guinevere 5 BY OLIVE M.

The season opened with 1 - - "ZW 5 i 23 'it ' Fit V 4' A but one veteran, but about forty willing candidates reported to it ug Coach Dickinson. Althou h handica Jed b the new rules, Mr. Nd':9QL3?"4 Dickinson rounded up a liggt but very lfast tcaiii. The first game of the season was with Needham, resulting in a score of o-o, as was also the score with Dedham a few days later. The next game, with Welles- ley, resulted, much to the 1atter's discomliture, in a score of 24-o in Newton's favor. To add variety to the game the Wellesley team refused, at the end of the second period, to continue playing on account of a ruling of the referee. Peace, however, was restored and the game finished. On October 12, Newton again played a no score game with Needham, while in the Milton game Newton won, 2-o. At Waltham Newton showed the results of Mr. Dickinson's strenuous coach- ing and evening blackboard talks, holding Waltham clown to a score of 3-0. Those who witnessed the game, however, felt that Newton was in every way equal to the Waltham team. In a most strenuous contest with Boston Latin, the latter defeated us I2-O, but in the later game with Worcester we won 6-0. In the Cambridge game the result was o--0, while Brookline won from us 6-o. Thus we lost the championship which we had' held for four years. The game with Boston College Prep. was a repetition, so far as score goes, of the Brookline game. In the last game of the season on Thanksgiving day, we were victorious, defeating Cambridge 6-5. Hyatt and Brady, during the whole season, did unusual work, both being freshmen, for Hyatt displayed excellent head work, while Brady was a team in himself. H. Clark was sure on passing, while Brooks was especially successful in receiving forward passes. McNeil and Rice were both hard tacklers and N. Clark did Fine work on the defensive. Hickox played well as halfback till the Waltham game. Then, on account of a sprained ankle, his place- was taken by Blue. The latter was a hard player and a clever dodger. lvlarshall, by his punting, pulled Newton from many a bad hole, while Rider, the captain, was one of the fastest players on the team, and showed up well in blocking forward passes. The outlook for next season is very bright, for out of the twenty-two on the squad, sixteen will return next year, including seven on the regular team. THE NEWTONIAN 81 Grack HEN the call for candidates for Track was sent out the response was not as good as might have been hoped for. But there was much ji g00d material there, and under the training of Browne and Dickinson Q1 3 the results accomplished were excellent. 5149 'riff The triangular meet which has 'usually been held was changed to a dual meet, on account of Brookline's refusal to participate. But we captured the honors of the meet from Cambridge with a score of 53-IO. In the Class Meet the juniors were victorious, gaining 29 points, the Seniors getting second place with 26 points, Sophomores and Freshmen being third and fourth with four points each. Tucker surprised everybody by winning the thou- sand and making a record thereby. - In the Newton-Waltham Freshman track meet, Newton won with a score of 29-'25, In the Annual B. A. A. game, Newton made the second best time in the relay race and Tucker won third place in the thousand, thus giving Newton 4M points. Since this was only the second time that Newton has entered these games the result was most gratifying. 1 ' Adams proved Newton's particular star and was elected captain of the track team for next year. - T Captain Macl.ure lowered the record made by .Mahoney and might have done better had he not been handicapped by an injured knee. Track is a good, clean sport and ought to be well supported by the whole school, which can hardly be said to be the case this year. THE NEWTONIAN , 83 , :Basketball LTI-IOUGH the baslcetball team played only seven games this year, they showed themselvescworthy of being called a fast, hard-playing combination. Captain ady was tie onlygveteran player of last year's team, while Henry Nash substituted. This year the latter has '- 'ik C5514 proven himself a fine player and he has been elected captain -of next year's team. The first game of the season was played at Winchester with the High School team of that city, and it resulted in a victory for Newton by a score of 30-21. Last year we were badly defeated there by 50-14, but we redeemed ourselves. Our next game was with Thayer Academy, played at the Newton Y. M. C. A. Although we did not 'have our regular line-up we won by the score of 45-20. Then we played our old rivals in a rough game, winning in the last half minute of play. This game was with Quincy, and the score was 20-19. On the twenty-second of February a return game was played at Quincy. At the end of the game the score was a tie, 8-8. Over-time was necessary to settle the contest and in this Quincy won, IO-8. h 5 On the twentieth of January, Allen School met defeat by the score of 44-15. A week later Winchester High came to Newton for the return game, but was unable to cope with the boys of Orange and Black. Newton again won, 63-15. One of the big games was with the Warren Avenue Prep. team. It was a hard and very rough game, and Newton lost, 24-27. ' Thus we see that ourvboys scored 234 points against our opponents' I27. which is a very good showing. ' X THE NEWTONIAN 85 Gymnastics ',l13f-,gg-ggi HE prospects for a gym team this year were unusually bright, for ,every one of last year's team was back again this season. Practice We started about the first of December, shortly after the close of the Qi-YJ football season. The first gymnastic exhibition was held in the "'5,Q'?L"L Drill Hall on the evening of March II, when the Harvard, M. I. T., and Brookline High gym teams came over and took part. - All the Newton participants did excellent work in the different events. The exhibition of boxing by H. Clark and Sanderson was of great interest, it being the iirst time that an exhibition of this sport has been given here. The fencing team was also a new institution this year, and contributed considerable interest. An exhibition was next given at Waltliaiii on March 18, and a little later on March 22 at Rockridge Hall. VValtham also took part and an interested audience from the Rockridge School was present. The next day, Thursday, the 23rd, saw another gymnastic exhibition given at the Allen School gym to the members of that school. A Saturday night, the 25th, Newton took part in gymnastic exercises, together with the Y. M. C. A. team of Malden, in the Malden gymnasium. On April 13, at the Brookline Municipal gym, the American. Physical Education Association held a large carnival. Harvard, M. I. T., and many different Y. M. C. A.'sA took part. A thousand contestants were present, but Newton was the only High School represented. With this meet the gymnastic schedule was completed and a most successful year it was. G N. T was awarded to two new members, while only two members leave by graduation this year. Although their leaving will be greatly felt, another successful year is looked forward to. It is hoped that many new candidates will turn out next December and make the gym team of IQI2 a brilliant success. THE NEWTONIAN 87 Eennis TH the advent of the year 1910, there developed such tennis material ,.,.1 y l,,L from which we have much to hope. For several years the interest A W k"' if in this department of athletics has ,been a little slack It is true that in 1899 and IQOI winning teams escorted the championship shields 5g'Q,'4'i'fff from the Harvard Interscholastic Tournaments home to Newton High and proudly placed them on her walls, but never before has such enthusiasm 0 I 'sv Y I' 18 r L s ' ftf'ii::J, 'L ' 54 been shown as in this year. Thirty-two hopeful candidates presented themselves at the Fall-Tournament and skillfully strove for places on the school team. Fripp ,proved himself the superior of superiors and carried off the winning honors in the shape of a medal. We think we have the Harvard Interscholastic cut, dried and boxed, with confidence we look forward to matches witl1 Brookline, Volkmann, and Haver- hill. In short, our team represents the cream of the state and considering the fact that excellent material is in the making for several terms to come, we may congratulate ourselves on the tennis work accomplished during this school year. Jliaseball . zigirqggg ..f..'. LTHOUGH but a few games have been played, Newton has shown fine form, and the prospects for the rest of the season are good. 3-via ..,, It seems almost certain that we shall defeat Brookline this year, and win the Championship. ' 'iilf " Wi The first game was played at Allston against Volkmann. We defeated this team very easily by a score of 14-2. The game was called at the end of the sixth inning. - The next game was played at Newton against Stone School. It was a closely contested game, but Newton finally pulled out ahead. Roxbury Latin was the next team to meet defeat. They were trimmed to the tune of 30-5. On Patriot's Day, one of the best games ever played on Claliin Field- took place against the strong Boston Latin team. The game lasted twelve innings and Newton, by a fine batting rally in the latter half of the twelfth, scored the winning run. Fripp, the centre Helder for Newton, made a very difficult one- hand catch, which helped save the game for Newton. Newton played horse with the Rock Ridge team and defeated them by a score of 21-3. Captain Sanderson of Newton was injured in this game, and will be unable to play again for a week or two. Wendell Academy, a team composed of old Rindge and Cambridge Latin .' h -s ' lg - ,-J' THE NEWTONIAN 89 players, came to Newton with the intention of giving us a good beating. They went home, however, with the smaller end of an 8-4 score. Rindge Manual, one of the best teams in the State, gave Newton her first defeat of the season. It was a very interesting game, for the result was always in doubt. Rindge won by a score of 8-6. Coach " Allie " Dickinson has done fine work with the team, for he has had to develop many new players, especially on the pitching staff. Spaulding and Whitney have shown up strong in this department of the game, Brooks is doing great back-stopping work for Newton, for few can beat him as a catcher. Barring accidents and "marked " players, thehteam should continue to do the good work that they have started this season. A '. Golf W1'fvfm:ggHE golf -team began the season of 1910 with Captain Malaney, Rice, yfi'!?Z KSQMQ . 1 . Schofield, Manning and Pray on the team. We entered the Boston Interscholastic Golf League and finished in second place, winning seven games and losing two. Brookline won the League with . C- -tl eight won and one lost. In the Interscholastic Golf Tournament held at the Woodlaiicl Golf Club, July 6, 7 and 8, four out of the sixteen who qualified in the first division were Newton men. One, Malaney, survived until the semi-finals, when he was beaten by Gleason of Lowell High School. In the fall of IQIO a tournament was held, bringing out twenty-five com- petitors. The gold medal was won by Pray, who was then elected captain of the team, which is composed of Pray, Rice, Schofield, Spencer and Lyons. The latter, although but a freshman, is a fast player. Several games were played with Fessenden School, Newton winning two -out of three. This spring another tournament will probably be held and the team will enter the B. I. G. League with good chances of taking first place, Brookline having lost three of its best men. H 1bocheQ HIS season the outlook for hockey was rather less hopeful than usual, N 5.85 for the team had practically to be made up of new men, only two any of last year's men, Burns and Foote, having returned. 4 P rl About twenty-five candidates reported for practice at Brae Burn on December third, and a short time afterward a team was organized which defeated the Harvard second team 4-3 in a practice game. Wellesley was our next victim, being overwhelmed by a score of 8-o. The aim tp A ixifafxifk 1 X Zi ji 4, " THE NEWTONIAN 91 Milton game, however, resulted in a tie. Rindge Manual gave us our first defeat of the season but it acted as a means for stirring the team up, so thatthe next two games of the season, with Stone School and Roxbury Latin, were easily won with scores of 8-o and 9-o respectively. ' We were then defeated in a close and exciting game by the championship hockey team of Melrose High by a score of 4--2. A After the Melrose game Newton met and defeated Cambridge Latin 5--2 in the first league game of the season and soon after Malden went down to a defeat of 2-o at our hands. t ' At Brae-Burn, Arlington High defeated Newton 4-3, but the latter soon made up for it by winning a cup at the Lexington Carnival, Where they defeated Arlington High .4-2. The next day we lost to Brookline by a score of 2--1. This game, however, was not counted for the Prep. League Championship as Brookline was disqualified for playing two marked men under assumed names. Thus Newton won the Championship and with Baldwin as captain and with Spencer, Wallcer and Spaulding back again, equal success may be hoped for next year. X jfielb 1bockeQ af W g,SY I-IEtcall for field hockey candidates last fall was answered by almost N a hundred girls, the best showing we have ever had in this branch faq 744' of athletics. Field hockey is fast becoming a popular sport. In tli im l the last four years the number of candidates has steadily increased and undoubtedly will continue to do so. Witli the earnest co-operation of coach and candidates a wonderful team was developed this year. Hard, conscientious work was the programme for every practice. The 'varsity team developed very slowly, but develop it surely did. Team work was the idea of play impressed upon every girl's mind, and a fast team was the natural result. The school team of this year, 1911, was the best team ever turned out by this school without a single exception. The players were all remarkably good. By first-class coaching and by hard work combined we made an undefeated team. The statistics of the team areas follows: Beatrice K. Allen, '11, a member of the team for four years, deserves much credit for bringing out a team of such all round sterling quality. Bessie T. Strongman, '11, our hard working manager, did her share toward the wonderful success of the team. We surely appreciate the way she did things. Dorothy Robinson, '11, our " Rolly Poly " centre, playing her second season. easily proved her worth as a valuable player. dm-yi THE NEWTONIAN 93 Marjorie Holmes, ill, playing her second season as left inside forward, showed that her presence was a necessity for the team's success. Kathyrn Tewksbury, ,1I, a member of the team for the past three years, proved a player of rare ability, easily outplaying all her worthy opponents. Ruth Clarke, '11, our " happy " centre halfback of the past two years, put up a wonderful game and deserves commendation. Helen Rice, '1 1, our "diminutive " right halfback, played a wonderfully good game this as she did last year and proved that " quality not quantity counts". Mildred Bouve, '1 1, playing her first year as 'varsity halfback, proved to be a valuable asset to the team. May Naegle, N. T. H. S. '11, made the team this year, playing a first class game at left halfback. 1 Clyde Carpenter, 'I 1, old " Faithful " by name, deserves praise for her hard work at goal, a position she has held for the last two years. Nellie O,Neil, '12, our fast right wing, a member of the team for two years, by hard work has won an enviable reputation as a hocky player. Wiiiifred Smith, ,1'2', for short " Smithy," proved a stone wall on the defense, being a, hard hitting fullback of great ability. This is her second year at the position. T ' Elizabeth Leavens, ,I2, right fullback for the past two seasons, proved a very bulwark in time of danger, and to whose door and to " Smithy's " a part of our success can be laid. . Ruth Allen, '14, playing at halfback, won her letter in the Radcliffe game, by putting up a game that could be envied by the older members of the team. The honors of the team are even 3 every player being the best to be had in her position. In the series with Radcliife we won both games, 5-0, Q5-2. The alumnae were vanquished by the score 2-0. Every game was full of interest and good plays. To Miss VVestgate, our coach, we owe much of our success, and we indeed appreciate the way she worked with us. By graduation the team loses many of the old players, but there is a wealth ofigood material to be had and to the next team we girls of 1911 wish the best of success. T Girls' Basketball p HE girls' basketball team this year has had a very successful season. There were Five games in the original plan, two with Wellesley, ' two with Cambridge and one with the Alumnae. The lirst obstacle that the team met, was in the match played against Vtfellesley in their gymnasium. It was Newton s first game, and played in a strange gymnasium, which was about one third the size of the house gymnasium. On this account, Newton was required to play with six of its 94 THE NEVVTONIAN nine members, a change which handicapped them considerably. The Wellesley team had every advantage and succeeded in making twenty-six points to Newton's thirteen. So much for misfortune. The second game was played against Cambridge, at Cambridge. With the first " half " resulting in a tie, Newton became deter- mined and the final score was I3 to 5 in Newton's favor. Our next contest was also against Cambridge, but was played at Newton. This was another victory for the orange and the black, the score being 28 to 10. ' y Perhaps the best game of the year was the second contest against Wellesley, held at Newton. In the first period Wellesley had no opportunity to even try to make a " basket " and Newton scored thirteen points. At the end of the second period the score stood 18 to 8, Newton still leading, and when the game was over, the final result was I9 to 16 for the home team. The Alumnae game was also a hard fought contest. The school team was ahead during most of the game but near the end the alumii scored. Time was called, and the score stood I4 to I3 in favor of the Alumnae. In speaking of the team, Miss Shepardson said, that the team work of the centres was good, and especially good between the centres and the goals. Also, that the guards were very strong individually, and that the goals were unusually sure in throwing " baskets," besides having very good team play. The year has been a successful one not only because of its victories, but also because of the general goodhfellowship and cooperation of all in any way con- nected with the team. The team itself has had no misunderstandings or difficul- ties and all of its members played together to the best of their ability for the honor of the school and not for any personal gain. For our success, we are much in- debted to Miss Shepardson, whose thoughtful and constant coaching has been invaluable. Also, we have been very much pleased with the spirit shown by those who attended the games. The great increase in numbers over former years, and the increased enthusiasm have helped the team immensely. The songs and special cheers were a great help and were especially successful because of the able cheer leaders. For all these things we are grateful, and wish to show our appreciation.

A 1911 athletics LASS athletics among the seniors have not been quite as successful as in previous years, especially in football, where the results were Zfilfl-51513511 ' ' . ' gi ,git-,,,ffs,. rather discouraging. 41 That the football team was not as good as it should have been V" ""' was well shown in the Brookline game where we were defeated by a score of 2-O. In the ame with the 'uniors, also we met defeat the score 7 ! being 22--O. The trouble seemed to lie in lack of good organization and spirit. 1 ' - 1 "1 THE NEWTONIAN , 97 In track there was better material as was plainly evident in the class meet, where we held first place until the very last event, the high jump, in which the juniors excelled. In the Dual Meet with Cambridge, the class of 1911 show up unusually well,,the improvement since the class meet being marked, for we gained more points than any of the other classes. The class basketball team, under the good captaincy of Blue, defeated both the junior and the sophomore teams, barely missing the championship of the school byia close score with the freshmen. We hear that the seniors in the girls' track meet were defeated by the juniors alone. ' As with the other classes the baseball team has not yet been fully organ- ized. But the material to be drawn from is excellent and it will be no one but the seniors' fault if they do not keep all the other lower and inferior classes in their proper places. 1912 Ettbletics if 'Q HIS year has been a notable one in athletics for the class of 1912. Rarely before have the juniors been so uniformly successful in all 5-,g branches of sport. Last fall we won the championship of the school Cf' 6 on the gridiron, although at the first of the season we were defeated in a practice game by the freshmen. This loss apparently did the team good, for, after defeating the seniors 22--o, they played a 0-o game with the class of ,I4. This was by far the best game of the season, and although Cap- tain Buck was absent, his position was well played by Corcoran and Rogers acting as captain pro tem. At first it looked like another freshman win, but with the ball on their one-yard line, the juniors held like a stone wall, and before the game was over had the ball on the freshman five-yard line, but no score was made. In track the juniors, for the first time within memory, won the class meet, defeating the seniors by three points. The thousand-yard run was a fight between Tucker, '12, and Captain MacLure, '11, Tucker leading MacLure across the tape by a fine sprint. Both lowered the existing record, Tucker bringing down from 2 min. 37.3 sec. to 2 min. 35 sec. 1912 also gained first place 'in the 30-yard dash, the 300-yard run and the hurdles by Adams, ,I2. Up to the last event, the high jump, the seniors led in points, but Nash and Faith, both ,I2, came to the rescue and secured first and second places. In the relay trials '12 defeated ,II and '13 beat '14, while in the finals ,I2 easily defeated '13. In the class basketball games, from the first, it was a fight between ,I2 and ,I4. The first game was between these two star organizations and was fast and exciting, being hard fought to a close finish, the juniors having the better end of the score. 7f 5:7 .V 98 THE NEWTONIAN A week afterward the juniors, flushed with victory, met defeat at the hands of the seniors. Meanwhile the freshmen had defeated the seniors and, since all three teams had beaten the lowly sophomores, the result was a three-cornered tie. The deciding game was played between ,I2 and '14 and was a repetition of the first game ending in a score of I3-I2, infavor of the juniors. Although no definite news has been obtained from our baseball squad, every- thing points toward an equally successful season in this branch of sport for the class of 1912. 3' Ka' A A Q2 'V :- ' -51. if I ,Z f Xa 1913 Eltbletics g--fel'--fl-ifg HE athletic work of 1913 as sophomores has been mainly for the purpose of seeing that the freshmen kept their place and recognized P 3 4 4 their inferiority. ' n 'willy M5241 In football, however, ,I4 won after a close and exciting game, mM -7' on Litchfield's blocking of VVellman's punt behind ,I3,S goal. Score, 6-0, in favor of ,I4. In a game with Brookline Sophomores we won, I2--5. I Roquemore, of 1913, made the school team, and several classmates were reliable substitutes, and should be heard from next year. In track, ,I3 easily demonstrated her superiority. The relay, Raymond, Wales, Ellis and Murphy, defeated Gilman, Gibson, Litchfield and Van Buskirk of 1914. In the class meet, ,I3 placed in four events, Groth in the 1,000 yards and shot-put, Burroughs in the high jump and Raymond in the 600 yards. In our meet with the Brookline Sophomores, we lost by a narrow margin, through hard luck in the three-hundred. The freshmen had a fine hockey team, defeating us 4-2. Spaulding and Baldwin were on the school team, Baldwin being next year's captain. In girls' hockey, the score was 1-1, after a very fast and well played game. Cur girls defeated the freshmen I8-7 in basketball. As to the baseball we can only conjecture. Candidates for the class-team have been called out and Spauld- ing and VVellman are showing up well on the school team. Possibly, as the superstitious believe, the U13 'i has been responsible for some little ill-luck that has befallen us, but all in all, success has been with us. THE NEVVTONIAN 99 1914 Eltl'Jl6lZiC8 HEN the freshman class, 1914, entered the High School last fall, the majority of the girls and boys looked to be smaller and younger than the pupils of preceding classes. Thus the appearance of the ' class in general was not particularly formidable. " -- ' if However, when the call was sent out for candidates for the football and field hockey teams, a number of "huskies " were brought to light. Out of ten games that the football team played, none were lost and only one resulted in a tie score of o-0. The field hockey team -was equally successful. Brady and Hyatt, moreover, both freshmen, made good on the school football team and gained their N's, while Miss Allen also made an N on the school field hockey team. In track, the class of 1914 won a meet with the Waltham freshmen, the score being 31-27. While the relay team lost in the Class Meet, second and third places were obtained in the 300-yard run, making four points in all for iI.1. and tying the sophomore score. In the meet with Cambridge, Van Buskirk won third place in the three hundred, with the result that he also wears an " N " sweater. Unfortunately, the girls' basketball team "was beaten by the sophomores. Although the baseball has but just begun, De Rusha and Hyatt are doing excellent work on the school team and seem to be in a fair way to win their " N." There is also much good material from which to pick the class team. Up to the present time three ,I4 boys and one girl have been awarded N's, while twenty-three boys and twenty-five girls have been given numerals. WVFWWTIUH , ., -5.0 , xv 11 ,... N ,xr "fl r P 44 V .

As a club not a reat deal was accom- sm we y . g 'iQfl'ylfjj'ffl plished: few meetings were held, and those far between. But the EQMLSEQ1 greatest work was done along the line of promoting interclass and interscholastic debates. A couple of interclass debates were held and the debaters received a pin signifying the work they had done. In November trials were held for a school team, on the subject: Resolved: that the tariff should be for revenue only. The team chosen was: West, '11, Cap- tain and speaker on the rebuttal, Belcher, '11, Wright, '11, Kepner, '11, alter- nate. Illness prevented Wright's participating in the first debate, which was held in the assembly hall with the girls, December 17. The subject was the same as that of the trials. The judges, Mr. Bothfeld, Mayer Hatfield, and Captain How- ard, gave the decision to the boys, who supported the negative. Trials for a team to compete with Somerville High School brought out the following team: Atkins, '11, Captaing Cooke, '11g West, '11, This team on March I7 defeated Somerville in the assembly hall. The subject was: Resolved: that the railroads of the United States should be owned and operated by the Federal Government. Newton argued for the negative. Since this was the first interscholastic debate Newton had won in some years the result was particularly gratifying. The same team that debated with the girls' team journeyed to Brookline, April 28. The subject was: Resolved: that Massachusetts should adopt the Initiative and Referendum as a part of the legislative system. The judges awarded the decision to the negative. The various musical organizations of Newton and her opponents supported the debating loyally by the pleasing selections rendered by them at the debates. 104 THE NEWTONIAN Girls' Debating club President, Ellen M.

Executive Commit- tee: Helen Ganse, cha1'rr11zan,' Katharine Bartlett, ,II , Dorothy Farnham, '12, Elizabeth Rice, '13, Elizabeth Starpweather, '14, HE Girls' Debating Society of the Newton High School was founded y and in March, 1909. It was organized, under the leadership of two of H4 'Wi the teachers, by a few girls from the Junior and Senior classes. Although the debates were interesting and instructive, and the subjects numerous and varied, yet in the year and a half of its exist- ence the Club held no public or interscholastic debates. This circumstance was unfortunate but unavoidable, and it remained for this year's Club to remedy the deficiency. At the first meeting of the year, which was held on October 21, the election of officers for the year 1910-11 took place, with the above stated results. After this re-organization meeting, it was found upon computing the membership list, that there were sixty-four ambitious girl orators in the school. And we proudly announce that the Girls' Debating Club has the largest membership list of any society in the school. ' This year a .debate between the Boys' and Girls' Debating Clubs was ar- ranged, and on Wednesday morning, December 21, before the whole school, a very exciting and withal closely contested debate was held, on the subject: " Re- solved, that tariff should be levied for revenue only." The Girls defended the affirmative, the Boys the negative. The girls' team picked for the occasion was as follows: Helen Ganse, '11, captain, Katherine Bacon, '11, Katharine Bart- lett, '11, Adelaide Fairbank, '11. The decision was awarded to the negative. Towards the middle of the year, a junior.Branch of the Club was formed for the Freshmen. This was thought advisable, as the Freshmen had had no previous experience in debating. Under this new regime they will obtain a year's training in debating before entering the Senior Branch or Debating Club proper. Katherine Donovan, '14,,was elected President and Mildred Corson, ,I4, Secre- tary and' Treasurer. The executive committee appointed consisted of Elizabeth Starpweather, chairman, Ruth Allen, and Gladys Webster. This junior Branch was made a part of the whole Club, and dependent upon the Senior Branch. In March, the Club challenged the Brookline Girls' Club to an open debate upon the subject: " Resolved, that Senators should be elected by direct vote of the people." The Brookline Girls chose the affirmative. 1 ' ....--. I THE NEWTONIAN 105 By the time the N 6'ZUf0111'01L is issued, the momentous question will have been decided. As it stands now the Girls' new team, chosen from the trials of April 20, consists of Katherine Bacon, ill, captain, Elizabeth Wardle, ,II g Beatrice Allen, ,II. We put a great deal of confidence in our team, and know that it is not misplaced, for this new team of ours contains the best literary and oratorical ability in the Club, of which there is quantity as well as quality. So here's hoping for the success of the Girls, Debating Team of the Newton High School, in the coming Brookline Debate. And here's to the success of the Club in future years. ELLEN M.

We have added a number of new games to those of last year, and these have been S0 well enjoyed that sometimes the meetings have become almost hilarious. We feel that the year's success has been largely due to the untiring interest of Miss Bruce, and to her we wish to tender our thanks. The juniors have supported the club well, and next year we hope that they will be interested to continue it. They have our sincere good wishes for making it a success. 106 THE NEWTONIAN Che wrcbestra Eff-Qgq-ffg N October, 1910, a meeting was called in the Assembly Hall for those interested in forming a mandolin club and an orchestra. Fifteen responded and as the majority were candidates for the Mandolin Club it was decided to unite the two into one School Orchestra. Robert Raymond, 1913, was elected manager. For the rest of the fall the Orchestra, under Mr. Walton's able direction, made steady progress at its weekly rehearsals and increased its membership to twenty-two. In January the Central Club of Newtonville invited the Orchestra to play at one of its weekly entertainments for the Italian population of Nonantum. The invitation was accepted and on December I5 the Orchestra made its iirst public appearance in the hall of the Stearns Grammar School. The performance was very creditable and was thoroughly appreciated by the audience, the playing of Leybach's " Fifth Nocturne " being especially applauded. After refusing several invitations to play in public the Orchestra agreed to play at the meeting of the Teachers' Association of Newton on january 26 in the Technical High School Hall. The work of the Orchestra showed great improve- ment and proved that Newton has the same high rank in music which she holds in all other branches of scholastic activity. For the members of the Orchestra the most pleasant part of the entertainment was the announcement that the newly elected president of the Association was Mr. Walton, to whose interest and untir- ing patience the club owes its success. Later in February the Entertainment Committee asked the Orchestra to play the first and last numbers at the Vaudeville given on March 3 for the benefit of the N ewtonian. After some hesitation owing to other plans, Manager Ray- mond laid the matter before the Orchestra, which promptly voted for acceptance. The Orchestra played its two snappy marches with ease and dash and showed that they had thoroughly "gotten together." Their work formed a pleasing in- troduction and conclusion to one of the best entertainments ever given by a High School. . The members of the Orchestra are as follows: First Violins, Robert Ray- mond, IQI3, M.

Business Manager FREDERICK I-IARTVVELL GREENE The Newtonian is an annual publication published by the senior class con- taining a record of the activities of the past year and giving an opportunity for the expression of talent both literary and humorous. At a class meeting in the early part of November the question came up whether the custom of having a year-book as instituted by the class of 1910 should be continued or not. It was decided in the aliirmative and Edward I-I. Barry was elected editor and Clifford Belcher business manager. The editors appointed Miss Tyler, Miss ald Belcher and Howard Calder and the business manager appointed F. Hartwell Greene as assistant. One of the first steps of the staff was to change the name of the book, as the name " Annual " was not considered as Htting as the present one. Since their appointment the staff has worked diligently with the aim of producing a book which should be a credit to the school and to improve as much as possible on last year's effort. In order that the book might be issued by june first it was necessary that it be in the printer's hands some time before that, so of necessity the account of the baseball season is incomplete. For the same reason the various events of graduation have been omitted. Titus, Don- 110 THE NEWTONIAN Ebe llqewtonian Entertainment On Friday evening, March 3, an entertainment was given in the High School assembly hall for the benefit of the Newtonian. At a senior class meeting in February, the following members of the class of 1911 were appointed as members of a committee to arrange for an entertainment, the proceeds of which to be given to support the Newtonian' Stuart Rider CChairmanj, Ellen Burclett, Kathryn Tewksbury, and joseph Proctor. Later William Dorney was appointed adver- tising agent. The entertainment consisted in humorous as well as musical talent and the committee was fortunate in obtaining the voluntary services of Miss Elsie Harrington fIQO8D, and " The Chadney Trio," the rest of the performance being given by members of the school. Miss Harrington gave the "Butterfly Dance " with great ease and grace. Misses Chase, Soden, and Ivy showed great skill and were warmly applauded. Miss Ethel Greenwood's two readings were much liked, as was Miss Pickard's brilliant violin solo. The seniors took part in the College Tableaux and their motionlessf Pj poses were much appreciated. " Dick " Hill played college songs and showed his skill at tinkling the keys. The Orchestra rendered two selections showing the result of able training. Dancing was enjoyed in the drill hall after the show. The performance was a great success and a material sum was realized, placing the Newtonian on a firm financial basis. - THE NEVVTONIAN 1 l 1 Gbe 1Review Staff Editor-in-Chief: DONALD BELCHER Business Manager: RICHARD H.

But we were able to pull through as usual, although we were unable to have more than one new cover design. The policy has been to publish short stories and articles in preference to longer ones. The Review as usual has received its "boosts and its knocks " and not more of the latter than the former we feel. In point of material the outlook for 1911-12 is encouraging, but the old Cry of support by subscription and contribution must be reiterated. The school Contains an abundance of talent but a serious lack of energy and organization. 1 . 1 if W' "Wm A ig? , , J I ..1...... 1534? , , F WTEEQVWQ' ' W x f ...., ......,. . , 7,0 MW -my ml V yn 4 II Nfq 51 4' .4 In 'fi 6, X f 'I fm 1'- I I X X' P 1 K W Y I J ak 49 L I 1 rf M K V 1 K Q D lj!

So I dream on in perfect peace For half an hour or less, Then spring up quickly from my couch just in time to dress.

While on the stairs, I wonder Why I seem to limp along, And looking down discover That I have my shoes on wrong.
