To the boys who did not make the team or a letter, much credit is given for their services and loyalty to the team. XVe hope that next year they will win their letters. The following lettermen will be lost through graduation: Raymond Archer., Chester Casconi CCaptainJ, Robert Cook, Clarence Hutchinson, and Rufus Luebke. The letternlen who will be back in 1940 are Harry Adkins, Howard Briggs, John Grabowski, Nick Triana, James Frontino, Frederick Gartner, Harold Hutchinson, James Moyer, Louis Newara, Stanley Salen, and Frank Chimera.

Lettermen Harold lVeinheime1', Clarence Hutchinson. Twenty-Four BASKETBALL Although there was a change in rules for the girls' basketball for this year, the team still lived up to the fine standard set by previous teams by winning the majority of its games. Out of the ten games played, Hve were won, four were lost, and the one with Lawrence Park on our own floor was a tie. This year six of the members of the team will be lost through graduation.

Twenty-Five DEIBATING CLUB The question for debate this year was, "Resolved: that the Federal Government should own and operate the railroads." This year the debate team enjoyed a successful season through the capable supervision of our coach, Miss Holland, and manager, Jean Ruble. Ruth Ruble, VValter Godsin., and Owen Sheridan conducted the affirmative argumentsg and the negative team consisted of Jean NVykoff, Richard Greene, and Fred Slad- den. The chairmen included Gilbert Calkins, Reid Sprague. lVard Hutchinson, and Richard Howard. Jean Flanagan, Marie I-lill, Betty Beates, Gilbert Calkins, and Jean Hitchcock acted as reserves. A trip to Buffalo Canisius and to Niagara Falls in the early part of the season rewarded us with experience and a good time. This year the teams to debate at Allegheny College were selected by their opponents through a system of individual merit. The members of the Debating Club hope to continue the splendid records made by previous teams representing N. E. H. S. i Walter Godsin. I Twenty-Six BAND The North East High School Band was organized in 1938 under the leadership of Mr. Frederick Serff, and it has progressed rapidly in the past two years.

'l' Lost through graduation Twenty-Ei Sh t F056 Gllflf CLUB The Glee Club for 1939-40 had a very successful year. The enrollment totaled fifty-five girls consisting of Freshmen, Soph- omores, Juniors, and Seniors. The elected officers for the year are as follows: President ....... Ruth Shields Vice President .... ..... B etty Niklaus Secretary ....... .... D onna Spencer Manager ............. . .. .... Jean Ruble Librarian ........................ Jean Culver On November 9, 1939, the club sponsored the first skating party for the school at the Twelfth Street Skating Rink. Be- cause this was such a success, they sponsored another on Feb. 14, 1940. This, however, was not so successful because bad weather prevented many students from going. April 5, 1940, they sang at the Spring Festival held at Union City. The girls that receive their letters are Jane Bemiss, Margery Burden, Charlotte Cushman, Roselyn Curtis, Lila Jean Kunkle, Bernice Post, Helen Loop, Mary Meehl, Jean Ruble, Ruth Ran- dall, Ptuth Shields, Julia Wagner, and Lucille Wassink. In behalf of the girls, we wish to thank Mr. Serff for his everlasting patience, his interest in the club, and the hard work that he put forward to help make us a success. Ruth Shields. Twenty-Nine 1 4 I. TINC IJ The Latin Club consists of students who are now taking their third and fourth years of this subject. The fourteen mem- bers, both Seniors and Juniors, hold a meeting each month in the home of someone belonging to the group. They have also held several purely social gatherings during the year, including a sleigh-ride and a Christmas party. The club colors are purple and gold, favorite shades of thc ancient Romans, and the pins of the group are worked in the same colors. The name selected this year was "Trojanie," a very suitable one since we are studying the exploits of the Trojans. Under Miss Scouller's capable guidance, the club has been a great successg and we, the Seniors, hope that the members left behind will continue to enjoy and benefit from it. President .... Margery Burden Vice President ......... Robert Edwards Secretary and Treasurer .. ..... Helen Loop Robert Edwards. Thirty FE' CAMERA CLUB The Camera Club organized during December, this year com- pleting the fourth year of its organization. The meetings were to be held twice a monthg but basketball and other activities interrupted, making it difficult to keep to our schedule. The main purpose of this club is to make familiar to the members the essential parts of photography. OFFICERS President .................. Harold Greenman Vice President ...... . . . .

Thirty-One FIJTUIQE FAIQMEIQS Our present chapter membership includes three Keystone Degree members, eight Future Farmer Degree members, ten Greenhand Degree members, and seven who do not officially belong to the club. Since the organization started in this school. we have had two Ameri- can Farmers and twenty-one Keystone Degree holders. The club has adopted a program of work which the members carry out during 'the year in addition to the regular school work. Some of the highlights in this program of work include making a trip to State College to enter the various judging contests four winners were Harold Rose who was fifth in Dairy Judgingg I-Ioward Post, fourteenth in Feed Identifica- tiong Robert King, fourth in Insect 'and Disease Identification and second in Farm lvlechanicslg entering the State Project Contest tour school ranked seventh in the state., collecting forty-three points.

IQESEIQVES This year the Girl Reserves have been very active under the guidance of Miss Sherrange. Among the activities planned were a 'Christmas program for assembly, a skating party at White Swan Farm, a book party, a health program, a Mother's Tea, and the Annual Easter Dance. The collection of toys at Christmas for poor children and the contribution sent in to the World Fellowship Fund speak well for our Welfare Committee. On November 19, 1939, the Girl Reserves held an impressive candle-light ceremonial, initiating forty new members into thc club. The purpose of the Girl Reserves is to create fellowship among all classes of people, regardless of race, creed, or color. We strive "To find and give the best." The presiding officers are President ........ .... I .ila Jean Kunkle Q Vice-President Charlotte Hollister Secretary ...... Lucille Wassink A Treasurer .... B. Ruth Norris 1- Carmella 'M. Mobilia. Thh-ty-Three The platform of the Hi-Y is clean living, clgan sport, clean speech, and clean scholarship. U At the beginning of the year the club was directed by Rev. Hankey as adult advisor with Mr. Vanstone as recreation leader. Rev. Hankey was later temporarily replaced by Mr. Ralston. The membership of the club is limited to thirty members, who are selected by the ones who already belong. The sponsoring of an "Amateur Night" was one of the high- lights of the year. This was a great success, due to the gener- osity of the participants and the cooperation of the club members. . The officers for the year are President ...... ..

AND THEY LIVED HADDILY EVEI2 AFTEIQ As I sat relaxed one evening in a spun-glass armchair and carelessly watched the telc- visionic screen become alive with Hgures re- lating the n.ews of the day, I was startled into attention. For there on the screen was the face of ivalter Godsin, the new and bril- liant radio commentator. Standing beside him was the gentleman whom he was pre- senting .to this deeply interested televisionic audience of 1950-none other than our old high school classmate, Louis Maas. He was now the state senator who had just gone on record for delivering the longest filibuster in history-one nhich lasted for seven weeks and was at last successful in defeating an unfair militia bill. Next, to my still greater sur- prise, our commentator presented another school friend, Virginia Pellor, who had just won first prize in a Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit for a portrait of her still in- timate friend., Carmella Mobilia. Carmella, I have since heard, is now the wife of that sue- eessful young man, Reid Mays, who is a jun- ior partner in a VVall Street brokerage firm. This unexpected glimpse of my old friends made me determined to find out the fates of more of those people with whom I spent four years of my life. Fate seemed to be playing into my hands, for the very next day whom should I mee-t on the street in North East but Charlotte Hollister. ln spite of her vows to remain unmarried, "Holly" was the second member of our class to march to the strains of Mendelssohn, preceded only hy Jean Meyer, whose diamond we admired so much in high school days fore told arighl. With Charlotte was Eleanor Herrick the noted New York fashion designer, home on a visit, who said that she had seen several of our friends at a recent New York party given by Ruth Riefstahl, now a famous hostess. At this unique party. where the guests came dressed in the rather foolish styles of ten years ago, 1940, were among others, Lila Jean Kunkle, smart young society matron and leader of cafe society, Owen Sheridan, editor of a metropolitan daily paper, and Margery Burden, at that time working on a magazine staff. Fred Sladden, the globe-trotting reporter, was unable to be present because he was covering the sailing of our new U. S. Ambas- sador to France, Gabriel Gagnon. As a rather strange coincidence, on the Normandie, Jr., on which "Gaby" sailed were two of our other classmates, each unaware of his friends' presence. Leading the ship's orchestra was Harold Greenman, and official hostess of the beautiful floating hotel was Ruth Shields. However, it wasn't necessary to look so far from home for some of our friends. The pop- ular young "gym" instructress in our new high school was Julia VVagner, and Lucille Wassink showed herself equally successful as an English teacher. B. Ruth Norris we were not surprised to find the proprietress of a florist's shop in Erie. Howard Post had be- come one of the town's leading large-scale farmers and was still competing with his old friend, James Youngs, in the agricultural. line. George Lick has only recently completed his internship and is now ready to begin prac- tice. Harold VVeinheimer, who still makes his residence in North East, was at the time out of town supervising the opening of another branch in -ll1E'YVOiHl1CiIllCl' Grocery Chain. Traveling with him is Bob Edwards, who is now a talent scout for the New York Yanks, and has been assigned to this area. Also liv- ing in North East at present, as I later dis- covered, is Phyllis Baker. She is now a busi- ness woman, but at the time I called upon her, she was in Meadville visiting her old chum, Jane Bemiss, who has been living there for nearly five years. One evening at a concert given bv a famous orchestra now on the road, I was surprised to see Roselyn Curtis playing in the violin sec- tion. Ncar her as always, was Howard Boyd, another member of the orchestra. Traveling with the company as a dynamic press agent was Rufus Luebke. Equally serious is the lifework of Helen Kaufmann who is one of our leading woman scientists, as I learned in a recent magazine article, and is now working on an important theory. Santo Serimenti has taken up the same line, also with success. Among those classmates who have chosen less sober vocations I found lfcrnice Post the manager of a roller skating rink and Bob Cook a highly rated "pro" football star. Man- aging the same team on which his brother plays was Charles Cook, whose business sense makes him a good man for the job. Farther from home, I found Elizabeth Rouse a feminine lawyer of unusual skill. Elizabeth Pierce is her invaluable research worker. In the same city Betty Phillips has taken expert charge of a famous doctor's of- fice. Pat Meyer I found the operator of a detec- tive ageney, and another classmate with an unusual vocation is iValter Smith, a racer, and winner of the Indianapolis Classic of 1949. Jean Ruble has become an expert de- bating eoach, but we hear she is soon to fol- low in Miss Woods's footsteps. NVe find that Elvora Goodspeed's expert ice-skating has put her well on the road to fame. Janet Snell has also taken up skating professionally, but hers is in the roller, and not ice, line. Marie Garnow, urged on by her success in her senior Continued on Page Forty 'I'liil't5'-Nine AND THEY LIVED HADDILY EVEIQ AFTED Concluded from Page Thirty-Nine year at high school, is now one of those lucky people who devote their time to winning con- tests galore. "Peppy" VVilkinson is a member of the class of '40 who chose an unusual voca- tion. She is now a "health fan" and advo- cates going without coats, sweaters, gloves, and hats whenever possible. Raymond Arch- er, unsaddened by school-day experiences in the peanut line, has opened a factory and now passes out nuts on his own whim. Reid Sprague, another who wandered far from home, was evidently attracted by his visit to New Orleans, because he married a southe.rn girl and settled there. Also in the south is Ruth Randall, who is studying sing- ing in St. Louis. Far from home is Norman Barton who we hear is doing well in his dance studio in Reno. Hard to keep track of is Irene Pierce, who has become a police woman and thus travels around somewhat. Mary Meehl, the beauti- cian, like Este Maxon, now a mechanic, is still living in North East. Edward Luebke runs a grocery store and Bi-ll Palmer, just as back in 1940, is interested in farming and girls-in fact, is the father of five daughters. Alice Decker and Clara Nicastro, success- ful young secretaries, 1-ide from Nortn East to work in Erie each day with Carl YVay, a rising insurance man. Phyllis Stimsc-n's train- ing in "Home Ee" prepared her well for life as a housewife, the same career which Margaret Semelka has adopted. Their friends, Ruth Shirey and Ada Hopkins, registered nurses, say that they are anxious in their off-duty hours to try on the hats of Donald Ball, who has become '21 famous designer in France. By a strange coincidence, court reporter Richard Howard, took notes when electrician Clarence Hutchinson and Allan MacDonald took out a patent on their new invention. Virginia Pierce, preparing for jury duty, mea- tioned this as we went to notify Charlotte Cushman and Arthur Chesley, both of whom still reside in North East, oi' their selection for the same duty. It was Chester Casconi who told Genevieve Bennett and lnyself of the success of Chicago Lusvness woman Helen Loop, the last member of the class of 1940. And it was with a sigh as I realized how singularly well that' group has placed itself in the world, that I closed that chapter in my flife.

Compliments of BLYSTONE'S GARAGE Telephone 205 38 East Main St 1' tYF N0 ITD The sudden, sharp ringing of the phone lifted Mary Raines from her chair by the fire and had barely stopped as she raised the re- ceiver to her ear. "Yes . . . yes . . . wonderful! . . . O. K. fine . . . by!" formed the entire telephone con- versation which ensued. As Mary danced back to her seat, Mr. Raines looked up, a startled look on his face. "That was a short conversation," he remarked. "XVhat's the matter?" As Mary joyously explained that "the gang" were planning a trip to the nearby city that evening and would pick her up in a few hours, tl1e first few pelts of snow stung the windows. As well timed as though the phone's ringing had been a signal, the storm began. Snow fell harder and faster each moment and the temperature had already dropped several degrees when, a few moments later, Mr. Raines announced firmly., "Mary, for the last time, I don't want you to go tonight. lt's already storming hard, and snow on top of all that ice will make the roads practically impassablcf' "Mother!" wailed Mary, "Daddy wo'n't let me go!" As his wife's determined tread re- sounded through the house, Mr. Raines winced. A hunted look crept into his eyes as Mary's mother took the situation into con- trol. Some minutes later, gasping weakly after the torrent of words, he made his last stand. "But Annaj' he pleaded, "1 just den't want our daughter hurt. I say she can't go." Two hours later Mary fought her way down the walk and piled into the already crowded coupe of her best friend, Mary Smith. The "Marys" exchanged greetings and paused a moment to chuckle again over the ever amus- ing coincidence of having the same first name, and then they were oft for an evening of fun. Some time later, finding the hour much later than they had realized, the happy and excited quartet of girls made their way back to the car after having spent an unusually pleasant evening in the city. WVhen Mary Smith had some trouble in driving her car away from the snowy curb, they found it necessary to get help. But the girls regarded it as a lark and a fine climax to the evening. On the way home along the treacherously smooth road, the raekety little auto gave a few experimental skids which made its pas- sengers squeal with delight and animation. But suddenly and without warning, there was a deafening crash and the ripping, tearing sound of a once useful Ford suffering its final hour. For After minutes that seemed like hours, a limp, bedragglcd figure fought its solitary way out of the overturned car and lost itself in the driving snowstorm which, after a few steps, hid even the car from view. The lone- ly white world i11 which the solitary struggler found herself was a frightening one. No lights could he seen in either direction, and the snow l1id all land marks so well that she was completely lost even on this familiar road. Trudging slowly and with effort through the storm, it was all she could do to keep to the highway, and the one thought which kept chasing itself through her mind was "Get to a house-find a phone-get to a house-find a phone-get to . . ." The thought suddenly occurred to her that She probably could not see if she did pass a house. Almost totally discouraged by this, she felt like turning around and going hack, but she no longer knew the way to the car, so there was nothing to do but force her way on into the storm. Meanwhile the wind was increasing in fury every minute, and lzack in the Raines home, Mary's father anxiously paced the floor, his steps growing longer and longer as his fear increased. He only paused for a moment to adju:-.t the radio to the city station, and then returned to his nervous vigil. Soon, with a startling suddeness, the announcer boomed forth, "Conditions are fast becoming serious," he said. "The fall of snow has been so heavy that even the snowplows have had difficulties on certain of the roads which were icy to be- gin with. Many of the highways leading f'ro1n here to surrounding small towns are al- most impassable and . . ." Mr. Raines had knocked over the offending radio in his haste to shut it off. An eternity passed as he went back and forth across the floor, and retraced in his mind his daughter Mary's life. Again and again he cursed himself and his wife for per- mitting her to be on the roads in a storm like this one. Then into the thick silence the shrill ringing of the telephone cut for the second time that evening. XVith one stride he was across tl1e room and at the phone. "Mr, Raines?" came an unfamiliar voice. t'There's been an accident-the girl just made her way to our house a few mo- ments ago. She says she's af'raid that she's the only survivor-her name is Mary . . ." "Thank God," breathed Mr. Raines. ". . . Mary Smith."

The Senior played Dan Cupid's part, And used the chocolate instead of a dart. He rushed to her home room to talk to Miss Free To explain his errand in evident glee. Miss Free, smiling graciously, agreed to the plot To see if Ardice would blush or not. Now Ardice, though tiny, with dignity Sweet Arrived at her home room to take her seat But Miss Free told her not to be in a hurry, And gave her the box with pomp and flurry. "To the Loveliest Girl in the World" it said. All unruiiled and calm this caption she read. But poor Howard suffered a lover's defeat And lost all faith in love complete. Into this story, the moral we weave, "Never to wear your heart on your sleeve." B. Ruth Norris.

He had his first car and it was his opinion that it was the fastest car on the road. The salesman had told him it would do one hundred miles an hour, and Dick had to drive it that fast before long or he would never feel satisfied. All this was running through his mind as he drove swiftly along. Abruptly his thoughts were interrupted by a man signaling for him to stop. He stopped quickly, thinking that perhaps the man was in trouble and he could be of assistance. As the car came to a standstill, the man jumped in and commanded, "Get me to Erie quick or I'll blow your brains out!" Now Dick was a brave boy, but the busi- ness end of a .38 automatic is far from a soothing touch. Dick compressed his lips tightly and started the car. fWhen he reached fifty miles an hour, he did not try to increase his speed. The man behind him shoved the gun in Dick's ribs and cooly stated, "I said quick! If you don't get this old crate up to ninety, I push you out and drive it myself!" For the first time Dick was really angry. "Old crate, huh? I'll show you," and he slammed his foot down hard on the acceler- ator. The car began to pick up speed. Faster and faster it went. Eighty-eigbty-five- ninety-and still it gained. It happened when the car reached ninety- iive. Dick had swerved out to pass a truckg and just as he came up beside it, a bus came around the curve less than one hundred feet away. Dick swerved the car off the road, over a ditch, and into a tree. The man had been thrown clear, but Dick was wedged behind the wheel and the car was beginning to burn. The man, seeing Dick in the car wedged behind the wheel, had for the first time in his life a streak of humanity. When Dick came to three hours later, the doctor handed him a note and said, "VVe found this pinned on your jacket. The man who pinned it there was riding with you and got you out of the car when it started to burn." Dick opened it and read "Thanks, boy. Here is money to pay for your car. If that bus had been late, I would be in Erie, now. But it wasn't, so I think I'll see how far I can swiln toward Canada. .Killer Durk. P. S.-I can't swim. Este Maxon. DI-IADIO DY Ol: A IQADICAI.

However, though we may be graduated and no longer he a part of the high school, long and dear will be the memories of the past four years which have been spent there. During this time we have made numerous acquaintances, both among teachers and classmatesg we have known luck, both good and badg we have known long hours of hard workg we have enjoyed supreme happiness. To mention each thing we have gained would be a never-ending task. Incidents and personalities will be endowed in our hook of memories as long as we breathe. I feel, however, that considering everything, there will be one dominating theme in the minds of us all. To briefly describe ity, it's this. NVe learned some of it when we attended the eighth grade. Wfhen we entered as Freshmen, we were somewhat en- lightenedg and as Sophomores we learned it word for word. WVhen, we, the graduating class of '40 return to North East High School in the coming years as Alumni, there will not be one among us who will not rise to his feet the moment he hears the old "School Song" and "Hurrah for the Maroon and Gold"-a memory which will have life everlasting!

DAY DIQEAMINIS I sit at ease in a cozy chairg My thoughts are wandering everywhere. l'm up in the sky in a keen aeroplane, Or walking the streets in an April rain. 1'1n saving a life-I'm a doctor now, And then I'm a farmerette milking a cow. Pm a practicing lawyer, an attorney at law, Urging a witness to tell what she saw. I'm modeling gowns in a style parade, Or the stalwart commander of a fierce brigade. I'm a professional skater, a Sonja Henie, Or a ragged old woman without a penny. Pm a fearless explorer with Admiral Byrd, Or the greatest actress that you've ever heard. I'm a Professor of Science at Harvard or Yale, Or a government worker-sorting out mail. I can do everything, or so it seems, As I sit in my chair and dream thrilling day- dreams. Jean Flanagan.

Our Freshman year wc were green, We met things we had never seen. After a while we began to feel That we were getting a very good deal. Our Sophomore year we felt O.

T0 GIIQLI fWith Apologies to Robert I-Ierrickj After very careful consultation and intri- cate study, there are those of us who will admit that girls, when well-humored and well-fed are almost human. That is, they walk, talk, and breathe-although most of them can't seem to realize. Perhaps it is their talkativeness that causes the most trouble. After further collaborating on the subject, some of us have drawn up a code which, if followed religiously, will never fail to bring its aspirant into the limelight-one way or another. At parties be the first one upstairs in order to start the group discussion. Also remem- ber, she who stays up the longest is the most popular with the boys. If offered two dates for the same evening, accept both. This will enable you to surprise one of them and the joke will long be re- membered hy him. Always apply make-up with a putty knife. This brings out your aristocracy. You have more where that came from. When on a date, always let other boys know you are around. Play 'idrop the hand- kerchief" if necessary. Remember, your dale only brought you. He has no strings on you whatever. Never pass a mirror. Always stop to dab into your compact and dab on some paint. tvhen in the company of your escort, strive to complete the biography of another boy's life. He will probably love biographies -especially as you are so interested in him. Never acknowledge the fact that a boy might have some degree of intelligence, for there is always the danger of conceit. Always make all the plans so that you may have your own way. Remember, you are right! What boy would ever dare to make you unhappy? Girls, all the "best-dressed" have a com- plete wardrobe of angora sweaters-one for every suit her boy-friend has. It's best to have them in contrasting colors such as white ones for blue serge, etc. Last of all, there is always the girl who makes her escort carry her combination tool kit and lunch box in his coat pocket. fThis sometimes goes under an assumed name such as hand-bag or pocket-book.J She troubles him often for it but is so sweet and coy he hasn't the heart to say anything at the time. lVhen you have memorized these ten com- mandments, a short course on how to acquire a steady line of chatter and a fluttery dis- position will enable you to attend all social functions with never a fear of feeling out of place. You now are the possessor of the mastery of "How to lVin Friends and Influcnce People." Donald Ball. T0 A DEIK Oh wooden bearer ot' paper and lead, Whose hardy back has never bled From pupil's knife or pencil lead. Your cries are fewer than the men YVho with their power rule the land.

The first of these must serve us yet And work with us some more, For even though we're leaving school VVe'll find more tasks galore.

Interesting to note is the fact that he is not racing at Sheridan speedway as his broth- ers did. but has opened up a new course which runs from his Mid- dle Road home to East Main St. via the Orchard Beach Road.

As some "Cooks" rode along the "ifVay" in their auto "Mobilia" at a very "Goodspced", they saw a "Boyd" perched on a "Post". They met "Stim-son" and "iVilkin-son" at "Hollister" and "Phillips" where clothes are sold without "Maas" in them. They had such a heavy "Burden" from the "Baker"y and "iVeinhei1ner"'s that they got stuck in the "Meyer" and the car "XVas-sink"ing in at an a"Mays"ing speed. The car "Rief"ed and "stahli'ed. iVhile in the "Meyer" they saw a "Green man" sitting in a "Palm" tree "er" swamp tree. They got out their "Shields" to protect themselves from the "Pierce"i'ng arrows that the unseen "Archer" was shooting at them. Finally the village black "Smith" came and offered to help them out for several "Rublc"s. After arriving in town they again met the black "Smith" who had "Rand all" the "iVay". He was choking so hard that someone cried, "Kant mann", and you'll feel better. Next they saw their own team "Lick"ed in a "Ball" game. After a ride on the "Loop"-O-Plane, they had a good "Meehl" on milk from "Chesleys"'s Dairy and groceries from "Bemiss" and Stets0n's. Phyllis Baker. Ninety l i W. C.

XVhile you're trying to get your pockets rc- fillcd from the effect of the one night's enter- tainment, they're out with somebody else. Grrr!" Miss Holland: "You ll1llSll not laugh out lr ud in school, Jack." Jack Gray: "I wasn't laughing. I was just smiling and the smile burst." I Fred Sladden: "That pie isn't lit for a pig!" NVaitress: "I'll take it back, sir, and bring you some that is." Mr. Casconi: 'iStop reaching across the ta ble, Chet. Haven't you a tongue?" Chet: "Yes, but 1ny arm is longer."

In the future this book shall serve us as a summary of the times never to be surpassed, and it is our sincere desire that in reading it you derive even a fraction of the pleasure which we enjoyed in making it.
