y: J I }i ' ? HCm » f THE MIRROR NORTH SHORE COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL VOLUME IX Published by A Board Under the Management of the Senior Class TO MR. LEWIS A. TAYLOR The Senior Class of 1929 dedicates this book in sincere appreciation of his friendly, helpful guidance and hearty co- operation with the school during the four years that he has been at North Shore. FOREWORD The Senior Class presents the IQ2Q Mirror to the school as a permanent record of the activities of the past year at North Shore. In putting forth this book zve have tried to make it a real mirror that in days to come will bring back to our eyes and minds the happenings of our Senior year. M jHemortam MR. FRANK J.

" Now all together on page 35! — " And so do his sisters and his cousins and his aunts, His sisters and his cousins, Whom he reckons by the dozens, And his aunts. " " All right, basses, on page 36! " — Boo — O — Oom — boom — O — boom — Boom — boom Boom! He polished up the handle of the big front door! " " Where are the tenors? All together now! " — " I thought so little they rewarded me, By making me a member of the " Facultee " . " " There! That ' s fine! We ' ll try some more next time. All of you bring your scores. " No gentle reader, this is not the high school chorus rehearsing for the opera. It is merely the staid teachers of the North Shore Country Day School getting tuned up for their bi-weekly faculty meeting. All this preliminary discord of staccatto piano notes and quavering voices may develop into a production of " Pinafore " by the parents and teachers, far outshining their rendering of " Trial by Jury " last spring — but we doubt it! They now settle down to the business of the evening. " Ladies and gentlemen, " begins Mr. Smith, " we have several announcements to make tonight but I can ' t make them now. Mr. Jones, the Committee on Programs for Faculty Meetings, is watching me, and his instructions are that we leave announcements until last, lest they crowd out the most im- portant part of our program. He has asked me to tell you something of my trip East where I visited several colleges that our students have attended, and they certainly are fine. All of the colleges say they want some more boys and girls like those. They wonder where we find them. Why, Miss Snod- grass, Dean of Admissions at Walters College, said it didn ' t matter if our girls flunked all their College Boards! If we said they were 0. K., they would take them in at once. But I ' ll tell you all about that later. Then we are to hear of the recent Progressively Educational Convention from Mrs. Childs, and about the Shady Name school from Miss Fargo, who visited there during their vacation. " Before starting on these talks, however, there is one item on the program I forgot to mention at the beginning of the meeting but because of its importance we had better have it now. Mr. Jones is going to explain the new chart devised at the University of Chicago for recording and calculating the " Para-Doxical Quotient for any pupil — Mr. Jones. " Mr. Jones — " I have passed around copies of this new sheet which we are finding most helpful in ascertaining the P. D. Q. of our pupils. You will notice it looks much like a stream-line graph. That red line down the middle is the Median or Mean Performance line. A check on the mean line indicates that the person is mean. A check on the left means that the person is meaner and a check to the right means that the person is meaner still — both inversely as the square of the distance. That is what makes it paradoxical, and is the secret of the effectiveness and usefulness of the Para-Doxical Quotient. This data is gotten by watching the pupil when he is asleep in morning exercise. We subtract the number of times he twitches his left ear from the number of times he twitches his right ear and divide by the product of his age in years by his height in centimeters. The result is his P. D. Q. Are there any questions? " Mr. Taylor — " I would like to ask if you have any records of Allen Ferry ' s P. D. Q. " Mr. Jones, after putting on his glasses and consulting a card in the Sacred Box — " We have three returns on Allen. One was .82, another was 1.68, and the last was .34. " Mr. Taylor — " Now I ask you! How can anyone with a P. D. Q. of only .34 be expected to tell the head of a logarithm from its tail? " Mr. Anderson — " It certainly shows up in his basketball too. " Mr. Jones — " That just goes to show the value of the convenience of the P. D. Q. chart. One difficulty we have experienced, however, is due to the lack of Lower School morning exercises. We can ' t expect to get valid results on the Upper School as long as we have so few Lower School programs in morning exercise. So for the sake of our records can ' t we have a better response from the Lower School ? " This arouses a discussion about the need for quieter exercises, which is terminated by Mr. Smith with the announcement that it is almost nine o ' clock, with just time for some announcements before adjournment. He is sorry we didn ' t have time for other speakers and hopes we can hear them next time. Mr. Corkran announces that all articles for the new catalogue must be in by next Friday, as he plans to send the final copy to the press in about three weeks. Miss Ellison announces that all faculty members are required to dance on two feet at the coming Valentine Party, as the Physical Education Department refuses to take any responsibility in the matter. The meeting adjourns. 12 l iife i ' " mimffS Jai FRUSTRATION I would not turn backward old Time in his flight To make me a child again, no, not for one night. But could I this moment my lost youth re-win With the " new education " I ' d gladly begin. There ' d be no petty crime to indulge in I ' d daren ' t Since every wrong urge is the fault of the parent. Nor should I now fear the results of confession Since none would dare to inculcate " repression " . When I failed in my studies there ' d be no to-do For what can one expect from a minus I. Q. ? And if I indulged in revolt and sedition Not a word would be said lest it cause ' ' inhibition " . And although my young ego staid codes like a bomb wrecked I would not, at least, be " inferiority complexed. " But alas! child psychology was all of it wrong In that lamentable era to which I belong. And so I can only look on and admire While my pupils demonstrate my " suppressed desire. " THE FRENCH PROVINCE Where should one look to discover the secret of the French Province? Not indeed in any of our big cities which naturally keep pace with Paris, neither in the country proper which has its special aspect in the domain of peasant life; but it may be found in any little town of France of twenty to fifty thousand inhabitants with its old aristrocracy, its newly acquired society, its types, its activities and its life. Once we have sighted from our train such a little town well nestled on the slope of a hill with its towers and its steeples, its dividing silvery river, its thick forest in contrast with its red tile roofs — let us stop and visit it. Our first impression on entering the city will be one of quietness and isolation in a country which is neither too picturesque or too dull, too mountainous or too flat. As usual the town is divided in two parts — the " vieille Vi lie " with little streets of quaint old names, and the modern town towards the station with its cafes and its stores. Here and there stand a few old historical residences with their hand wrought portals surmounted with an ancient coat of arms. And in the very heart of the city, the cathe- dral, jewel of many of our provincial towns lends a certain grace and majestic grandeur to this silent corner of the Province. It is around this spot, along the old streets, in the shadow of old historical mansions and under the dusty plain trees that the life of the city follows its course — " to be or not to be " of " La societe " in one of these towns depends on a series of infinite details, while in its midst live certain types indis- able to its life: the grand bourgeois " noveeau riche " , the contemptuous families of the old race, the local banker, the university professor, the fashionable lady, the old faithful servant with a ribbonned bonnet going to the market carrying a basket on each arm, the people behind the curtains living inert and shut-off lives and so many other quaint and curious characters are found in a provincial citv. In the factory the work is done carefully day by day and in the family amid the narrowness of every day life you will recognize the seriousness of purpose. At the surface — simply city and tranquility, but with every hour flowing into each day, these towns represent a safe, deep, robust and vigorous life — La Province! It is France indeed, it is its very blood! 13 i - i u aim nm a n n nn : 31 THE PARENTS THIS CHANGING WORLD In the ten years since the founding of the North Shore Country Day School the physical aspect has been constantly changing. By this is meant — not the Athletic Equipment only, nor the increasing physical prowess of our athletic teams (both girls and boys) — but the Buildings and Grounds where the work and play of the school take place. This development has followed a preconceived plan which was carefully thought out early in the history of the school. In 1919 a group of parents secured the services of Mr. Perry Dunlap Smith as Headmaster and leased the Girton School property from Mr. Cooke, the former Headmaster, for a period of five years with option to purchase the property during the term of the lease. The school buildings at that time consisted of Knollslea Hall, the Girls ' Gymnasium, Eliot Hall, West Hall, and Leicester Hall, which had been used as the dormitory for the boarding pupils at the Girton School. Knollslea Hall Gymnasium Eliot Hall We Hall The photograph herewith shows the buildings taken from the porch of Leicester Hall which was then used as the Teachers ' Dormitory. At that time Diller Street (which is the east entrance to the school grounds), extended through as a public highway from Center Street to Forrest Avenue. Leicester Hall then stood on the north side of Diller Street and the grounds back of Leicester were occupied by a thrifty peach orchard and grape vines. The open space west of Leicester was levelled for an additional play ground and the fruit trees and vines were removed. The Athletic Field for the upper school boys was located between Church Road and the Chicago Northwestern Railroad tracks; the girls and younger boys used the field in front of West and the Gymnasium. In those days Knollslea was the boys ' building and the lunch room. What is now the General Office was then the kitchen; the present offices of Mr. Smith and Mrs. Greeley and the present east kindergarten room were the lunch rooms. The sixth grade was in the second kindergarten room. The upper school boys were on the second floor in the two Art rooms. The girls ' gymnasium was then used by both girls and boys, after extensive alterations in the basement and provision for lockers and showers. Eliot Hall was the lower school building; West Hall was the Girls ' Building with two of the practice rooms as class rooms and the third small practice room as Mr. Smith ' s office. The Study Hall for the High School was in the present Music Studio on the second floor of West. w At the end of the first year it was necessary to increase the classroom space to accommodate about forty additional pupils. By payment of additional rent to Mr. Cooke, his consent was secured to the use of the first floor of Leicester Hall as class rooms for the kindergarten and for the seventh and eighth grades. At the end of the third year the parents decided to exercise the option for purchase of the school grounds, and the construction period commenced. In 1922-23 Dunlap Hall was built for the upper school and the boiler house was constructed at the south end of the girls ' gymnasium. During that year Knollslea Hall was closed and barricaded with the intention of tearing it down, but after considerable remodeling, including the removal of the old tower, it was re-opened for the offices of the school and for the kindergarten. In 1924 the Boys ' Gymnasium was built with the Lunch Room and Kitchen underneath. In 1925-26 the Auditorium was built in front of the Girls ' Gymnasium by the liberal donations of friends and parents of the school. The remainder of the Cooke property along Willow Road was purchased in 1927, giving the school the owner- ship of the entire two blocks north and south of Diller Street. After considerable negotiations with the Village of Winnetka, Diller Street was closed as a thorough- fare and the paving was removed on the west half of the block to make a continuous athletic field from the Auditorium to Willow Road. In exchange for the vacating of Diller Street, the school gave to the Village of Winnetka a strip along Center Street for the widening of that thoroughfare. The continuation of Center Street along the west side of the Chicago North- western right-of-way cut off the east side of the lower Athletic Field so that it was too narrow for Athletic Grounds. This property was therefore sold to a builder who has constructed a group of houses thereon. The football field was moved up to the north of Leicester Hall and the field west and south of Leicester was planned for two hockey fields for girls. In 1927-28 the former residence of Mr. Cooke was remodeled for the Head- master ' s house and leased to Mr. Smith for a term of years. Leicester Hall was moved down Diller Street and south along the school property to the southeast corner where a new foundation had been prepared for it. A new dining room and kitchen were build under the new east porch which was so located on a side hill, as to make an English basement with plenty of light and air. This gives the teachers attractive living quarters with a home dining room, instead of their being obliged to go out to the school dining room for their breakfasts and dinners. Meanwhile, work was progressing on the filling in of the Cooke property and the slopes east of the old location of Leicester Hall in order to provide larger athletic fields on level ground. More than 10,000 cubic yards of dirt were required for this filling. The broken concrete and stone, secured from the old basement walls of Leicester and from the old stables and poultry buildings on the Cooke property, were used to build the retaining wall along Center Street, to keep the fill from sliding on to the sidewalk from the high level. This gives sufficient space for two fields for girls ' hockey and two football fields. In the spring while the track athletics are in progress, there is space for two baseball diamonds. During the summer of 1928 also, a new concrete driveway was laid from Diller Street to Knollslea Hall and a heavy wire fence was erected around the entire school grounds. A cinder running track 30 feet wide and 120 yards long was laid along the east side of the new athletic field and a pole vault pit and jumping pits for broad and high jump for both girls and boys were installed at the former site of Leicester Hall. In the fall of 1928, the Grounds Committee in charge of shrubbery and plant- ing arranged picnics for large groups of parents, teachers and students, to woods along the Desplaines River owned by some of the parents in the School. Per- mission was given to dig wild shrubbery for the school from a section of the woods where a highway was to be cut through from Highland Park across the Desplaines River. Hundreds of large and beautiful wild shrubs of many varieties were secured in that way and planted around the new fence. Place — Any Winnetka home. Time — Any school morning. The father is reading the headlines of the paper and efficiently disposing of his orange at the same time. He puts it down as the mother slides hastily into her chair and reaches frantically around the floor with one foot. A colored maid enters conspicuous for her mop of black straight hair. " Bring the coffee, Amarantha, please. Any news, dear? Leave the paper; I want to see the bargains, — think I ' ll go to town — no, not with you — on the 9:10. I ' ve got to call up the entire grade about the meeting tonight; why one notice isn ' t enough, I don ' t know! I have to get some flowers for Sally at the hospital, — and get a lot of stockings ready to go back to Field ' s. I do wish Adelaide could like the same shade two weeks in succession; I send up dozens for her approval. " " I should certainly think — " begins the father. " No, Dick, you mustn ' t criticize, she really hasn ' t a minute to shop — you know how they have to study — and — Oh, I mustn ' t forget about the Jone ' s coming for dinner. I ' d better stop at the grocer ' s myself on the way to the train. Guess I ' ll take the 10:15. We ' ll have an early dinner and take them to the meeting. It ought to be interesting — " Adolescence. " The children get more adolescent every day certainly, — by the time we know all about it they ' ll be grown up and ready for college, and we ' ll forget everything before our grandchildren come. I do wish they ' d be a little more prompt for breakfast. " Calls, " Adelaide, Betty, John, buckwheat cakes and you won ' t have time — " There is a thump in the hall and a boy comes in adjusting his necktie. He takes orange juice at a gulp. " Cakes? — tell her to hurry, will you? Got to finish my History before school. Aren ' t thinking of driving Dad to the station and dropping us at school, are you, Mum? " Mother shakes her head. " Well, I just thought I ' d ask. " Glancing at father, " Yes, I remember you walked four miles to high school, Dad, — anyway, you always claimed it. Shame North Shore isn ' t four miles away. My character might get built right, too. " Lapses into active silence with large plate of cakes. A rush from the hall and two girls race in. " Dibs on the first piece of toast! " shouts one. " Just because she grabbed the bathroom first, now she thinks she can get toast first. — Mother, didn ' t I get over this threshold first? You know that ' s the rule, and dibs don ' t count, " indignantly exclaims the other. " Ah, cut it out! " grumbles the boy and leaves the room. " Don ' t start the day quarreling, girls, " expostulates the father. " Well, I ' ve got to go. " Gives Mother a hasty peck and goes. " If you children can ' t settle little things like that yourselves — I ' d be ashamed of myself! " says the mother distractedly, and frantically searching for the bell. " Girls, I wish you ' d wear more clothes; just because the sun shines you take off wool dresses for those thin things and wear spring coats and no hats. " " Why, Mother, " returns Adelaide, " we ' re plenty warm enough. Just because in the olden times when you were a girl you wore union suits " (with scorn). Pauses and changes tone. " Do vou mind If I eat this piece of your toast — it ' s so late Thanks. " " You ' ll starve, children. I do wish you ' d get up ten minutes earlier. Finish your milk anyway, Adelaide. " " No, Mother, I couldn ' t eat anymore; Fm not hungry. " " Betty, I want you to wear your rubbers. " " It isn ' t wet out. Besides, my rubbers don ' t fit these shoes, and, besides I have rubber soles. " Chorus of goodbyes. Hurrying footsteps on the front porch. Silence. Mother presses bell calmly. " Amarantha, is there any hot coffee? And will you make out your list. There ' ll be a call from Field ' s. I ' m going to town. The clothes for the cleaners are in the hall. " Takes the paper eagerly as hot cup of coffee is brought. " Guess I ' ll take the 11:11. " 16 PARENTS ASSOCIATION Under the spreading Knollslea tree The Parents often meet They make a mighty crowd to see As they come down the street The subjects that the grades discuss Give everyone a treat. They form committees by the score Chairmen and such abound And even in the office now Some parent can be found To answer phone calls, tend to shop Foreign visitors show around. The Parents serve the lunch at school And serve it very well, They make the costumes for the plays And have been known, ere now To give a play with the faculty That really was a wow. The greatest problem parents find Is figuring out some way To keep from being wholly deaf To what the children say And making Teachers understand Just what the Parents say. Miss Blue — " How nice to have you two come along. You are both so full of things that are going on. You cheer me up a lot. Alice Green is coming, and we can play some bridge. " Mrs. Brown — " Sorry we are a bit late. I couldn ' t get Mabel away before. She was at the Country Day School all day. " Miss Blue — " It makes me laugh, Mabel, to see you, who have such a reputation for side stepping jobs, giving so much of your time to that school. " Mrs. White — " You would do the same I know if you had any children. You, who have been so devoted to uplift, can ' t chide me, can you? It is different with Ruth here who never likes it when we are late for bridge. " Mrs. Brown — " What do you get out of it anyhow? Can ' t they run a school and educate your children by themselves? I should like to know what good vou do over there. I should think you would be just in the way. " Mrs. White — " Oh! I suppose sometimes we are, but not when we get educated enough. " Miss Blue — " That ' s it, I really do believe they are educating the parents rather than the children. Look at Gretta Black! She does not nag her children as she used to; it seems to me she understands them much better. Mrs. Brown — " Gretta Black doesn ' t give any time to the school, does she? " Mrs. White — " Indeed she does, she spends one day a week in the office. " Miss Blue — " What does she do in the office? " Mrs. White — " Oh, answers the telephone, and takes visitors around the school, and greets the strangers who come into the office. " Mrs. Brown — " Now why does a parent do those things? That ' s a strange idea. " Mrs. White— " Not such a bad one. Those are the unexpected things that inter- rupt the regular routine of the office. Besides I really think all of us parents are getting a little education through that office committee, they are there all day and get a look at the school from an inside point of view. Through them we learn to be more reasonable in what we expect. You know they spend what time they can visiting the school so they will be intelligent guides when they are taking visitors about. Gretta told me the other day that there were visitors almost every day and many days several. You know our school is getting quite a reputation all over the world. " Mrs. Brown — " Well, to tell the truth, I mean to send my children there when they are old enough, only I hate to think of going to monthly grade meetings in the evenings, and serving lunch, and making costumes, and working in the library, like the rest of you girls. There will never be any time for bridge. " Mrs. White — " But those things are all privileges, every one. You can ' t imagine how much you get from those grade meetings. You may be bored to go, maybe every time you will wish you could stay home. But when you get through you will know so much more about what the parents of your children ' s friends think, of what the newest thought is on the upbringing of children, and of what your child is being taught and why, that you can ' t afford to miss them. " Miss Blue — " Couldn ' t you get those things by reading, and not take your husband ' s precious evenings? " Mrs. White — " But he wouldn ' t want to read that sort of book would he? Nor want to hear me talk to him about it. Besides it means a lot more when you discuss such things with people you know. " Mrs. Brown — " I think making costumes would be fun. That opera they give every year, and the Christmas play, I think they are lovely, but serving lunch! That ' s a chore, I shouldn ' t want to do that. Why do they need mothers to do that? " Miss Blue — " That ' s a thing everyone likes to do. I had lunch at the school one day when I was taking Alice Green over, and I enjoyed being there with so many young people I knew. How many mothers serve lunch? " Mrs. White — " Two every day, and each person comes once a month. That is forty mothers who are serving lunch regularly. " Miss Blue — " You certainly are all roped in one way or another. " Mrs. White — " We are roped, and branded, and taught our paces. " Miss Blue — " I said N. S. C. D. S. was a school for the parents. I wonder why they have any children at all. " Mrs. White — " The children teach the parents instead of the parents teaching the children. " Miss Blue — " You all teach each other. That ' s what I call cooperation. Here comes Alice Green. " Mrs. Brown — " Well, let ' s hurry and get the bridge table out, don ' t let Alice hear us talking school, her Jane is in the first grade. She ' s beginning to be in- terested in education and we wouldn ' t get any bridge. " 18 19 Norman B. Johnson " Norm ' ' ' ' Williams ' The wisdom of many and the wit of one. Wilfrid C.

Think of it! The only time in your life that you get the thrill of reading about Roman history from the original language (that is unless you happen to take it over again in your senior year). You will find that in practically every junior class throughout the history of the school the pupils have been so enthusiastic over Cicero that they have even spent their lunch periods buried in the book— that is, if Latin class comes either sixth or seventh periods — and I have seen them engrossed in it during Morning Exercise. One of the best ways of fully appreciating the beauty of Cicero ' s sentence structure is to read the passages aloud. This is usually done just before class by the person who has pre- pared it and the others get a great deal out of it. " A BEDTIME STORY " Finally the school in the big oak tree was dismissed and all the little students squeaked their joy while merrily tumbling over each other. Each was scampering in everv direction, the bigger animals stopping now and then to nip each other, or engage in a general tussle. A keen observer might have seen little Dudley Meadow Mouse scurrying hither and thither near the sides of the tree-school-room to keep out from under the large and numerous paddy-paws which pattered in- cessantly in the frolic. And once when the Wilder Duck came too close, little Dudley fearfully dodged behind a root. After a few minutes of general confusion, each little animal was engrossed in the task of selecting his books from his cubby- hole for the next day ' s classes. Big Bobby Oppossum finished this first, (a very unusual thing) and was hurrying towards the door, whistling cheerily and swinging his heavily laden knapsack from side to side. By pure accident (or was it some plot of Bobby ' s subtle mind) this deadly weapon hit each student, bending oyer his books. The first victim was Herbert Mole, who was lifted bodily by the im- petus and tumbled into his hole. Attracted by the cries of poor Herbert who was trying in vain to extract himself, Bobby was upbraided for his carelessness, but soon the commotion died down when the sleek oppossum, struck with remorse, helped the little mole to his feet. However, not for long was Robert pacified, and when the same fate as happened to Herbert fell to Stoke Snake, Doodie St. Bernard and Mallard Duck in quick succession, these three unfortunates arose with one accord and helped Big Bob materially towards the door by means of several well meant love-taps. Sensing the approaching danger, little Canterbury Hyena slipped out the door a second too soon to see Gibblet Banderlog stretch forth a long, thin paw, which sent poor Greggy sprawling on Alley Bear. Now as everyone knows, Bears should not be irked and to prove the axiom, Montague sent the unfortunate Rob through the rather rickety (they had seen hard use before) rustic benches, completely exhausted. At this decisive point, who should enter but the famous Junior Fox and with him Abbot Setter. There was nothing for them to do but set upon Bobby. But, ah, who is this who darkens the doorway and with a horse- voice bellows, " Let ' s have less noise in here! " The moments tension is over, for it is only Lewis our beloved teacher. 32 3- 4- 5- 6. 7- 8. 9- 10. HIDDEN NAMES A girl never inflicted by anger; hard ships don ' t bother her. Ho! ive love to tease this girl. She has a huge wonder w ion of words in her vocabulary. She doesn ' t care a whit, even for French or Latin. Le louis est inconnu a lui, parce qu ' elle ne voyage jamais. She lent her services, as president of the girls. " Let nothing mar your good times, " is her motto. A sassafras tree zakes root in her imaginary garden. She does as well on the team as on any committee. Her hig z frustrations of humor are displayed in puns. JUST BETWEEN We Juniors might be well compared, With cheese between some bread, Sandwiched ' tween the Sophs below, And Seniors up ahead. From Sophomore year in us remains, Some playfulness unspent, But since we will be Seniors soon, Our ways we must repent. From our point of view we are The knees of the well known bees, But from the others ' point of view, We are only the piece of cheese. The hordes rush in and the hords rush out, The school shakes as the pupils crash about, In fact it is a riotous rout. First in English we read of how cruel Macbeth, Caused much wicked death. Next in French we enjoy a bit, While Madame has a fit, Every one having done their lesson (nit). Sarcasm is meted out with generous hand, Flowing impartially o ' er all the land, In " Do you ever look up things? " " prepare, In Latin class. or be canned, In Math, Mr. Taylor we asked, How do you do the problem last? And he poor man knew not how, alas. Last, in Ancient History, We learn the lore of old world mystery. Then the hordes surge out. Straight out, with joyful shout, To home in perfect rout. 33 c u 2 s 3 H 4 r » ' K ■ r i 7 C H " I E KM r H 4 5 ' V aJt V | L r - : I I wt 1 A ' IB j l-M K n C V J E (rWM I L _lJ8Hs 3.° A " y | v E I || 4 S " t zT 7 J 3 p$l f y A L H " A R B 1 31 L ii KSMM n F L- it " 3 .

Red hats, my best beloved must realize are the most atrocious and ridiculous hats ever invented. They are, if you can perceive it, somewhat like derby hats, but oh, best beloved, I must assure you that they are quite different from derbies, the most striking difference being the color. Of course there are other differences in shape, size, rim, crown, make, style, price and form; in fact one might sav that they are just like derbies only different. But time is fleeting, and explanations are thwarted by Latin, which calleth me. Now, oh best beloved, let us weave the element of action into our narrative. Those of you who are acquainted with us know, but for the benefit of those who have not yet had that good fortune, let me here remark that when the feminine aggregation of our class have occasion to find fault with the masculine division, it is an idiosyncrasy of theirs to raise a vehement objection, in short to use their sturdy limbs in most pugnacious attacks. Undoubtedly you comprehend that this controversy, of which the aforesaid red hats were the basis, terminated in a most rude and ungracious competition which might be vulgularly termed a fight. After these heroic girls, striving for all that stands for nobleness, freedom, life, and pursuit of happiness, had eliminated these aforesaid head coverings, a formal battle was begun. The boys, angered by the devastation of their beautiful hats, swung into a powerful array. First they delivered a well aimed blow at the personal property of the girls, and then bellowing with righteous wrath they decided upon the un- fortunate girls ' room. Nothing was excepted from an orgy of hate and a reign of terror, which ended in the most terrific disruption and destroying of the books, hats, coats and notebooks of the girls. In less than twenty-four hours after the original confiscation the property was redeemed and all made right. The next day they hung once more upon their lofty hangars (masculine heads) and beamed insolently down upon us, and I fear me we are doomed to see red henceforth. 36 : a niWiiTTTiiilfrTi There once was a French class — still is — That struggled to solve Madame ' s Quiz, When asked " Parlez-vous. " Plus some verb endings too, They disproved the saying " Ignorance is bliss. 37 SUFFERMORE " TROUBLES There was a gent (Julius Caesar), Who wrote stuff called Latin, for pleasure But if he had knew What sad troubles he ' d brew, He ' d have found other use for his leisure. There was once a diligent man, Who to excavate history began And now you can see, By my great agony, That it wasn ' t at all a good plan. The Sao fd(«s , n 38 FRESHMAN CLASS CLASS OFFICERS Henri Bouscaren Barbara Hobart Edward Brown President Vice-President Secretary 39 THE NINTH GRADE ■ii They came in the fall of ' 28, When the school doors opened wide, Thirty dashing freshmen With hearts of glee and pride. They walked about the vastly halls With big eyes opened wide, But ere a week or so had passed, All fear they laid aside. " All the things that I do not know Mean extra work for me. " The truth in this the freshman saw, Ere many months did flee. The first thing was the vaudeville That brought the class to fame. The banjo act and dancing act, The audience did acclaim. With scenery reared and faces smeared The actors pined to go, The people cheered, the curtain rose, On this great vaudeville show. After this we all agreed, That we must give a dance, But alas, we had no money, In the pockets of our pants! And so to swell the flattened purse, An awful tax was laid. And every week the freshmen meek, Four bits sadly paid. In all the school ' s grand history, Since men began to prance, The best and most exciting hop It was the Freshman Dance. And now in joy and triumph high We end our freshman year, Vacation shall go and then shall we As Sophomores appear. 40 NINTH GRADE RADIO PROGRAM Station N. S. C. D. S.

Erasers o ' er the pupils tore, The grime of chalk was on the floor, This made the chairman very sore, Oh! never again, Oh! never more! When the din of the meeting was over so great, In walked Mr. Jones with majestic state, With a pound on the table he bid it abate, Or, if we weren ' t quiet, he ' d give us the gate! The meeting continued most wholesomely well But the outside air had a drawing smell, Then came the encouraging quarter-past bell, So at twenty minutes past we scattered pell-mell. i.TTgmTTfr MISSING Has anyone seen my brain?

At that moment Miss Gilbert comes tearing in on a green bicycle, waving Miss Bacon around her head and screaming something at me. I look at my paper — what have I written? .... Puella donnez moi . the composition of eggs with Ivanhoe, Mozart, Washing- ton and Mr. Landers in a steam chest. Suddenly Mr. Riddle comes flying in with a baseball bat and he bangs me over the head — I instantly awake to find myself lying on the floor clutching wildly at the covers. iniiLUjjuiutiunmg SEVENTH GRADE CLASS OFFICERS Bruce Smith Charles Harding President Vice-President A MILLION YEARS AGO Among other prominent citizens James P. Gillies and Colton Daughaday were still sleeping peacefully, all wrapped up in dreams and covers. John Perry had arisen early and knocked all his teeth out in the family bath- tub. He was absorbed in picking up the fragments of his dental molars when he was interrupted by the blithe young voice of Herbert Flack calling " Hurry on, John. " He quickly slipped into his bearskin and slid down the cliff which sur- rounded his cave, passing Mody Butler who was sketching a giant Dinasour on the way. Charles Ford Harding III was being pulled forcefully out of bed by the com- bined efforts of his sisters and brothers. In his consternation he drew 54 maps, 104 codes plus his breath. He dressed hurriedly and rushed out. Not seeing the cliff, fell off and landed at the feet of Julie Walcott who, dressed in the latest of Dinasour skin coats, was sliding calmly down the cliff on her way to school. Eddy Mills, Freddie McNally and Bunny Burns, pussyfooted by Raymond Durham were walking to school when they sat down in the shade of a very large rock. Suddenly the rock got up and walked off. Oh what a blunder they had made. The rock was none other than Mary Armstrong herself in person, not a moving picture. In another section of the village was Helen Bersbach. The moving picture of " Flaming Youth " and " Flaming Hair. " Beside her were a crowd of girls, reading from left to right Alary Sands, Rhea Zur Wells, Betty Booth, Evelyn Shuman, Deborah Leonard, Mary Lou Laird, Marjorie Stearn, and Betty Crilly. Suddenly the path ended and they all fell to weeping as was their custom. This certain morning everybody seemed to be falling — some in love, and some to weeping, and others down. Richard Kaulback just arrived in his new Catalogue. Bruce Smith, Norton Goodwin, and Joe Sampsell, all dressed identically different, came running to school only to be sent home again because they were so bright that nobody could stand to look at them. Then they reached home they fell off to sleep. Mary Jean Bartholme, Ruth Friedman, May Burley and Katherine Bulger were floating placidly down the river on a log. Having eaten heavily of elephants ears they became rather wild. Ruth Friedman getting more and more wild, turned the log over and they all fell into the river. They swam ashore and passed Spencer Beman, in his red hot pajamas doing his daily dozen to the accompaniment of the snores of a certain Jonathan Strong. £iixnif OUR YEARS AT NORTH SHORE How long ago it seems when we were in second grade back at Eliot Hall. How big we thought we were, weaving on the looms we had made ourselves. Our patient teacher helped us through all our difficulties. We built a hut for our two sheep which died during the summer. Fourth grade brought us many new pleasures, one of which was that we were allowed to choose our own lunches. The boys ' gym was built. While we were studying Greece we built a model of a Greek house. In Fifth grade we went into West Hall. We gave the play " How the Princess ' Pride was Broken, " in the new auditorium. In Sixth grade we felt very lucky to have Mr. Carlson for our teacher. It seemed as if school had hardly begun when we were in the midst of the Thanksgiving play. Seventh grade has changed our life greatly. All our work has become depart- mental. Being on our own a great deal more, we have new responsibilities. MEETING PLACES (Apologies to A. A. Milne) There ' s a hall in a building where the students go to meet. (Scratch, scratch, scratch. . . . Scratch, scratch, scratch. . . .) They write nice papers for the teachers fire to peat. (Scratch, scratch, scratch. . . . Scratch, scratch, scratch. . . .) The teachers read the papers with a watchful eye, To mark any mistakes that they should spy. Disgusted with the paper, they throw it in the peat. (Scratch, scratch, scratch. . . . Scratch, scratch, scratch. . . .) There ' s a room in a building where the teachers go to meet. (Chatter, chatter, chatter. . . . Chatter, chatter, chatter. . . .) They talk of the papers that were thrown in lighted peat. (Chatter, chatter, chatter. . . . Chatter, chatter, chatter. . . .) These papers should be written over for this lady or man. (This was the way since the world first began); But from now on, papers must not be thrown in peat. (Chatter, chatter, chatter. . . . Chatter, chatter, chatter. . . .) 48 THE SIXTH GRADE BUILDING THE PYRAMIDS The Sixth grade have studied about the Egyptians this year, and as we were thrilled by the building of the Pyramids we have written this story. Lucy sat down on a bench near the Rosetta stone in the British Museum. She was thinking how gray the room was, partly because of the fog which went rushing by outside. Finally Lucy closed her eyes and seemed to drift along with the downy bits of fog. Presently a voice seemed to be telling her to open her eyes. She did so quickly and instead of the dense fog the sun was very bright and the land sunny and brilliant. As she rubbed her eyes and looked around she saw a huge jagged monument of stone swarming with thousands of black slaves pushing huge blocks of stone. " Oh, it is Egypt, " she cried, for away in the distance the sandy desert stretched away to nothing, while the Blue Nile wound in and out with shady trees on the bank. Suddnely a trumpet sounded and around the great pyramid swung a gorgeous sight. It was the pharoah in a chariot drawn by milk white horses. She stood up; the reins were taut and the horses prancing. Beside the chariot ran some women slaves, waving long fans over him. Behind came some priests and scribes. They would keep the record of building, during the whole life time of the pharoah, on their papyrus scrolls. " Oh, " cried Lucy, " I believe it is the great Khufu, who has come to see the progress of his great tomb. " " Yes, " said a voice nearby, " ten thousand slaves have been working thirty years and it is nearly done. " The stones have come frcm the Arabian mountains down the Nile in barges. The last great blocks are being pushed up the wooden causeways. Soon the crack of the slave driver ' s whip will be heard no more, then praise to Amon. Ra. Soon great Khufu will go to his eternal dwelling place in his offering chamber will be all things for his soul. Lucy seemed not to see all as clearly. She rubbed her eyes and blinked, " Let me look more closely at the Rosetta Stone, for I have seen the building of the Great Pyramid. It was five thousand years ago. " 49 KING ARTHUR King Arthur had a might} ' sword Pie drew it from a stone, And thus did prove that he was King To sit on England ' s throne. King Arthur was a mighty king, A mighty king of old, He had a noble Table Round And knights as gentle as bold. King Arthur he was wounded And on the field did lie, A faithful servant found him there And bore him off to die. The knight did see a small black barge Coming towards the shore — Two queens were standing in the stern, And one did stand before. They bore him off to Avalon And left him on the shore, But the Britons thought he ' d come again And rule them as before. so m FOURTH GRADE ACTIVITIES 51 ■ " " " " ■ ■■■■ " I B LINCOLN When Lincoln was a boy, he wasn ' t a rich boy but he did his best all the time. You all know everybody was his friend. He couldn ' t go to school much because he had to chop down trees and work in fields. Once he went on a flat boat away down the Mississippi. He saw slaves. He said, " If I get a chance I ' ll stop that. " He did stop it, but he had to fight battles. Before he was Presi- dent he studied about our laws. He always studied. Once he worked three days in corn fields to get a book about Washington. THIRD GRADE The Third grade has some chickens, two hens and two ducks. Greeley Wells brought them in sacks with a rooster, too. He ran away but we found him again. But we soon found out that he crowed too much so he had to go back. We got quite a few- eggs from one hen and the other hardly ever laid an egg. I don ' t know how much the eggs cost but we sold quite a few. We sold some for five cents each. I feed them sometimes. The chickens and ducks both had to stay in the house all winter because of the cold. The ducks came out once in a while, but not so much as they do now. The chickens are beginning again to Second Grade Dear John: How an February, 1929. you? We are dyeing yarn for our weaving and we will send you some of our new colors.

FIRST GRADE CIRCUS (A piece of zcork carried out by First Grade since Xmas. Story of it written by the group.) We first made a three ring puppet show with card board animals. Then we went to shop and made a tent. We brought it back to our room and fitted and made the tent cover. We made patterns for animals to be cut out of composition wood. We mounted these on wagons. We made circus wagons and band wagons out of shoe boxes. Some of the children brought animals from home and some made animals out of clay. We drew pictures of wild animals, painted pictures of them and made posters. We heard Kipling ' s " Just So " stories, Zoo stories, Circus Reader Stories and some poems about wild animals. Then we built a circus out of blocks with our tent in the middle. We built a lemonade stand, a place for candy and pop corn. We made a ticket office and tickets. We made paper money. We brought our dolls to see the circus. Most of the first grade went to see " Sim- ba " and some of us will see the big circus in Chicago during spring vacation. We have each made a circus book with pictures and stories we have made. 54 .56 ALUMNI . Just eight years ago the Pioneers of N. S. C. D. S. emerged in the form of that hardy group known as the class of 1921. Among those illustrious folk are Katherine Bulkley Lowry, who graduated from Smith in ' 25 and who married Tim Lowry in ' 27. She is now studying law at Northwestern University. Christine Bau- mann, also of Smith ' 25, is selling Real Estate for Bills Realty, Inc.; Elizabeth Jackson Webb married Erunig T. Webb in ' 27; Katherine Mordock Adams, of Bryn Mawr ' 25 was married in ' 24 and lives in California, and Bob Clark, married last summer, works for the Jewel Paint and Varnish Co. and lives in Barrington. Of the next class, that of 1922, we learn that Bud Mordock, treasurer of the Alumni Association this year, is a graduate student at Cornell; Pete Rudolph is travelling in Europe; and Caroline Case Noren, of Smith ' 26, has been married a year. Willoughby Walling was married last summer and is working on a govern- ment job in the west; Barbara Nicholls Bernard has a child and lives in Evanston, as does Mabel Golding, who is also married. That sage gentleman, Austin Phelps, is reported to be a professor at Yale; another Yale man, Mac Stevenson, is now working hard in Chicago. Vera McDermid, a reporter for the Howard News, graduated from Northwestern in ' 27, and Edward Hinchcliffe is a staunch family man with his wife, formerly Elizabeth Bittle, and daughter, Georganne. The class of ' 23 was smaller and included Butch Miller ' 22 a 1928 graduate of Yale, studies law at Northwestern; Ed. Ashcraft, who also studies law at North- western — after an illustrious career at Princeton — and Molly Radford who studies medicine at Chicago. Ruth Holloway is reported to be travelling in Europe. As for that versatile class of 1924, Harriet Leonard, who is now president of the Alumni Association, finished off her prominent career at Radcliffe where she was everything from President of the Senior Class to captain of the hockey and basketball teams, by coming out last winter. Elly McEwen may be on a Medi- terranean Cruise with her parents, but then what with the uncertainty of life and all one can never tell. Mariette Cassels graduated from Mount Holyoke in ' 27 and is now studying Interior Decoration at the New York School of Fine and Ap- plied Arts. Percy Davis is getting good marks at Chicago, where he is after three years at Harvard. Two members of this class have since attended Vassar at one time or other; for Louise Sherman it was first on the list, while the Sarbonne was second and Chicago .University third. We believe she is still at the last mentioned institution, if she has not by this time flitted elsewhere. Mary Ott was the other Vassarite; she now resides at home. Al Childs now attends Northwestern, now works for the Elliot Stahl Co., and now again attends Northwestern. English Walling is working hard. Ah! we approach the present era. Of the class of ' 25, four are at Yale. Crilly Butler is the editor of the Year Book, is on the Interfraternity Council, and is a 57 full-fledged airplane pilot. We can ' t think of anything to say about Johnny McEwen, well, of course he played end on the varsity football team, but you don ' t hear of that funny game very often. Elbridge Anderson and Fully Dean are doing well at Yale; Fully being another of our athletes. Mary Miller is at the Bouve School of Physical Education in Boston. Elizabeth Lamson is engaged to Warner Washburn and will be married in the fall. Mary Carmen has been studying art, and Fredrika Walling has been studying at Chicago. She came out on New Year ' s last. Barbara Groves during a varied career has shone at North- western, The Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, and Bradford Academy, at the last of which she made most of the teams there were to be made. Frank Fowle has been on the varsity basketball team at Williams for three years. Midge Janney Robey lives in Evanston. Helen Shimmin was at Smith but has left. Lynn Williams is an aspiring young lawyer — aspiring as yet. Louise Lackner, a senior at Vassar, is an editor of the " News. " And finally, of those two members of the well-known Boal clan, one, Panny, is up hunting polar-bears with Dr. Grenfell in Labrador, while the other, Stewy, is an editor of the daily " Crimson " at Har- vard and played on the Senior Class football team. We now begin to recognize some old familiar faces — for to tell the truth we were but mere babes-in-arms when the preceding folks were about. Of the twenty- sixers, Marion Alschuler and Dorothy Reach are at Chicago. Antoinette Lackner and Susan Burlingham made the choir at Vassar, where Susie is also on the class hockey and track teams. Maxine Lichtenstein is also at Vassar. Of the Harvard boys, Chevy Millard, a glee-clubber, is on the Sophomore crew; Frank Blatchford and Johnny Davis are in a production given by the Phi Eta Club, in which Johnny is a leading man, and Frank — can you believe it — is the leading lady! Pete Hamm is at the Lewis Institute, Ed. Hoskin is at Carnegie Tech., Joe Page at Princeton, and Heiny Stein at Dartmouth, where he is majoring in psychology. The next class, that of ' 27, includes such personages as Thomas U. Boal, Phil Moore, and Billy McEwen, who each and every one attend Harvard Univer- sity. Phil works on the Crimson and Billy competes for subscription-manager- ship of the Dramatic Club. Larney Blatchford, recently of Harvard, has trans- ferred to Annapolis. Elsie Watkins, Nancy Wilder and Louise Conway are at Wellesley, Louise is Vice-President of the Sophomore class and Elsie— we knew she had it in her— in her leisure is teaching settlement children to dance. We believe Louise indulges in the same pastime occasionally. Nancy has been play- ing basketball and lacrosse and singing in the choir and glee club. Betty Parker, Dingey Thomas, and Louise Fentress are at Smith, all working hard no doubt. Louise made her debut last winter. Helen Bell, our physicist — extraordinaire, is at Bryn Mawr getting excellent marks and singing in the Glee Club as well. Kay Leslie is at Vassar, where she made the Freshman Hockey Team; Lois Truesdall is enjoying herself at Connecticut, Heath Bowman likewise at Princeton, and Jane Sutherland at Pine Manor, where she made a French Club. Knox Booth is M at Yale, and Marianna Ruffner is at Pine Manor where she made the first hockey and basketball teams, as well as being president of the French Club. And now we come to our immediate forefathers, as it were — that very satis- factory class of last year. Four of the class are at Williams. Bill Fowle covered himself with glory as captain of the Freshman Football team — Ted Bersbach was on the same team and was pledged to the Delta Psi Fraternity. Winnie McKeown, Jane Churchill and Joy Fairman are at Les Fougeres in Switzerland. Florence Riddle is at Horace Mann School in New York, where she made the varsity hockey and basketball teams, besides joining the French, Glee and Music clubs. Eleanor Cushman and Sue Miller are at Smith, where Sue made the Freshman Hockey Team. Boris Ferry, at Vassar, was captain of the Freshman hockey team and has been getting A-i marks, as usual. Can ' t keep a good man down! Hattie Moore, at Bryn Mawr, was the only Freshman on the Varsity hockey team. Meg Lynde is on the Student Council at Wells. Francis Lackner and Grant Pick are doing well at Harvard. Johnny Merrill is to be seen about occasionally, as is Bud Groves, who attends Evanston High School. Hughie Porter lives at home and is studying at the Barther School of Music in Chicago. Frae Alschuler is at Chicago University. Ginny Ruffner is at Briarcliff, where she made the Varsity Hockey and Basketball teams. Last but indeed not least, Ginny Honnold and Jane Adair are at Wellesley, where Jane is upholding her old standards as Captain of the Freshman Golf Team and as member of the class Executive Com- mittee. 59 60 ORGANIZATION S MIRROR BOARD FOR 1929 Hiram Hoskin Wilfrid Barton Harry Wells Virginia Lamson Ives Waldo Elizabeth Millard Lucie Jacobs Florence Watkins Alce Ann Clark EDITORIAL STAFF Editor-in-Chief Organizations Editor Boys Sports Editor Girls Sports Editor Quicksilver Editor Alumni Editor Dramatics Editor Faculty Editor Parents Editor Phelps Wilder Frances Wells Class Editors Frederick McNally Cornelius Watson Henrietta Boal Norman Johnson Carl Koch Alfred Alschuler BUSINESS STAFF Class Business Managers Business Manager David Howe Advertising Manager John Porter James Odell Ruth Beardslee ART STAFF Class Art Editors Art Editor Jack Odell Snapshot Editor 61 uvuiimnr . |ni|mpmi STUDENT GOVERNMENT UPPER SCHOOL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Harry Wells John Porter Alfred Alschuler Jeanette Hill Alice Beardslee Alce Ann Clark Wilfrid Barton Allan Ferry Francis Moore Chairman, Terms I and 2 Vice-Chairman, Term I ; Term 2 Vice-Chairman, Term 2; Term 1 Secretary, Term 2 Secretary, Term 1 ;Term 2 Terms I and 2 Term 1 Treasurer, Terms 1 and 2 Term 2 ■•mmm a sasae UPPER SCHOOL GOVERNMENT As the school grows in size and expands in all directions, new problems of all sorts arise. Some of these the assembly has dealt with successfully, others not so successfully. In the last few years the question of how to handle the finances has been a troublesome one. At the outset of this year the assembly introduced a new system; a finance committee composed of all those handling money in any classes or on any committees; receipt books were purchased and each treasurer was made responsible to the Treasurer of the Executive Committee. This system has proved quite successful and the school finances have gone along smoothly. _ Since the new auditorium has been added to our beautiful campus the spirit in morning exercise has taken a decided slump. Back in the girls gym the whole school used to take part in every exercise a sort of sharing of knowledge and ex- perience within our family. But lately and perhaps due to the spacious building, somewhat like a movie house, a strange, unwanted attitude has prevaded. The students seemed to think that they were there to be entertained, and almost wholly forgot the basic purpose of the daily meeting. The executive committee took this in, had appointed a committee to look into the matter and within a week public opinion had completely ousted the " movie attitude " and had started the morning exercise on its way to the attitude held by our predecessors at the school. LOWER SCHOOL GOVERNMENT The Lower School started their Self Government this year by having each grade elect a chairman, who was to call meetings to discuss the problems of their grade. We did not have any special committees until we felt the need for them. The first committee which became necessary was a House Committee. It consisted of two members from each grade headed by a sixth grade boy as chairman. He reported at one of the final town meetings that their project throughout the year had been the appearance of the buildings and the attitude of the children in the halls. Soon it became necessary to elect an Executive Committee in the usual manner. As spring came a Grounds Committee was necessary, and we also wanted- a Museum Committee headed by a curator. Each committee consists of two mem- bers from each grade assisted by a teacher who advises when necessary. Much can still be done so that we may get the full value of our Self-Government, but we feel we have accomplished some good points this yea :ir. CHEER LEADING The cheer leading this year showed some improvement. There were two sections, boys and girls in which there were three cheer leaders besides the heads. There was some trouble in the boy ' s try outs though the girls had a good number out. The girls had very little opportunity to lead. Printing the cheers and handing them out at the games was tried with modest success. THE GROUNDS COMMITTEE Third term, the Ground Committee had a good deal on its hands. Eddy Mills was elected chairman. He took office after exams. Not much work was required until the thaws; except when he posted a list of boys to police the driveways (which was dropped). Then the main obstacle was keeping people off the lawns. The School cooperated fairly well with the Committee. After the vacation, things were dry so people played everywhere but on the May Day lawn. Then we had the biggest Grounds Committee event of the year. Dig Day. Mr. Lund and Mr. Bollinger helped us. It was a wet day on Thursday and Friday (Thursday the scheduled day) and so it was postponed till a good day in the week following. Everything went smoothly. That closed the events of the term. 63 Purple White John Porter Phelps Wilder George Hale Alce Ann Clark Ives Waldo STAFF 1928-29 Board of Editors Elizabeth Sutherland Knight Aldrich Business Manager Advertising Manager Secretary Literary Editors Louise Ruffner Charles Haas The staff feels that they can look back upon the school year as a season of accomplishment. At the end of last year the Purple and White had sunk to a low ebb from every standpoint; issues were late in delivery, the school was un- interested, and too few had subscribed. This year started with a bang, almost universal subscription and a plentitude of assets were quickly realized by the circulation department. With this help, and a revised system of editorial management, the editors succeeded in: enlarging the average size of the paper, awakening widespread interest and getting every issue out on date. The interest of the school promptly materialized in the form of the number of willing assistants to the editors. The editors have introduced a great many more illustrations, started an Alumni Faculty column, and opened one section of the paper as a Public Forum to which any one might contribute by writing his woes or opinions. For the first time the paper carried advertising, and although necessarily on a small scale at first, this department is constantly enlarging and becoming more efficient. The success of this venture is attested by local merchants who have found that our advertisements paid well. The thing we are proudest of however, is the tribute from the Alumni. They like the promptitude with which they receive their copies and the increase in size of the paper. Altogether we have had a year of great progress. THE TOY SHOP, 1928 _ The efficiency of the plan adopted last year for the toy shop, led to the continu- ation of that plan for 1928. A manager had charge of the entire organization, and a purchaser was respon- sible for the financial business. It was the duty of the purchaser to buy and deliver the necessary materials for each department, and to keep an itemized account of all articles purchased from the stores. By such a system, the given quota was not exceeded. In order to have a successful toy-shop, the student body must respond to the callfor toys. The management of the 1928 toy-shop wishes to take this oppor- tunity of thanking the students and faculty for the manner in which they co- operated. THE LIBRARY— A SCHOOL INSTITUT ION The library committee belongs to the school as a whole and not to any single class. The duties of the small group in charge of the library are insignificant in comparison with the responsibility the school must carry to help them out. The reason that so much has been said about library rules this year is because in so small a school we are unable to have a regular librarian to keep an accurate list of books taken out, and to see that the rules are enforced. This lack leaves the matter almost entirely in the hands of the individual. If each person holds him- self responsible for the books he takes out, to see that they are properly signed for and returned on time, the library can be maintained in good condition. But valuable books are easily lost simply through one pupil who forgets to sign his name in the library book. Then there is no way to trace the missing volume. Several of the Mothers have spent a great deal of time cataloging our library. To misuse the books shows not only unnecessary carelessness but ingratitude to them. The committee itself sees to it that the library is ready to use and the books in place every morning. They are doing their part and ask only that you conform with their few simple rules. THE LOST AND FOUND COMMITTEE This year the Eighth grade girls had the Lost and Found committee. The original committee was Leslie Wilson, Chairman; Henrietta Boal and Debby Butler. In January a new committee was elected consisting of Nancy Burley, Chairman; Charlotte Chandler and Virginia Ashcraft. The committee planned to hold an auction but too few things were collected and the idea was dropped. It would be very helpful to the Lost and Found if the students would mark their things better. It w .uld be better if the Lost and Found could have a larger locker as the books have to be kept in the room. FIRE DRILL REPORT This year the main thing the Fire Drill Committee did was to make the fire plans permanent. We put all signs under glass. We have tried to have at least one Fire Drill a week. Another plan we carried out was to have pupils take the names of those who talked. As a whole, the Fire Drills were good but could be made much more efficient. We suggest that the first few meetings should be at- tended by the head of the Fire Drill Committee of the year before. We also suggest a plan of one Fire Drill each week. At the beginning of this year the fire drill seemed to be the " goat " for everything. This should serve as an example to others that it is best to do your job right away. A committee of three was chosen. Then we used members of the class as timers. 66 DRAMATICS THE CHRISTMAS PLAY This year the Christmas play was produced by the Eighth grade in a new way. Under the able direction of Miss Loomis, new effects were made in scenery, light- ing and the drama itself. They presented the story of the Nativity in the form of one of the old mystery plays of the middle class. The play began with a prologue by " Isaiah " and was followed by the Annun- ciation. It continued with a shepherd scene and the meeting of the three wise men. The worship of three kings and the shepherds around the manger was one of the most effective scenes of all. The setting inculcated new ideas and impressed one with the advance dramatics have taken in North Shore — inasmuch as the mystery plays were given in the courtyard before a cathedral, there was no curtain till the final scene. A grey framework of the facade of a cathedral and the cyclorama were sufficient scenery, their simplicity creating the perfect: illusion. The prologue from the steps of the cathedral, and given by Isaiah robed in white, was dramatically perfect and the setting of the principal scenes, the Annunciation and the scene in the manger, played on the sides of the stage with only the grey curtains as background was distinctly well done. A chorus of angels sang chorals during the play, a country lullaby being one of the most beautiful. After the drama was over the students and alumni sang the traditional " Stille Nacht " in the lobby. It gave the last touch of Christmas atmosphere to the afternoon and the parting spectators left feeling that they had seen something worthy of the schools ambitions and abilities. JUNIOR PLAY On January twenty-fifth the junior class presented " The Progress of Mrs. Alexander. " The play was the story of a social climber and her efforts to rise in the world, which never fails to be amusing. The players were unusually well cast, each seeming perfectly suited to his role, and performing it as though he had stepped into the character of the person he portrayed. The play was full of delightful comedy, but nevertheless had a well defined moral. The Juniors wisely chose simplicity as the key note of their scenery, and the results were very realistic stage settings. The play had been widely advertised, and was well attended by an enthusiastic audience. The cast evidently put a great deal of hard work into the production and merits a large amount of credit and praise. 67 RUDDIGORE This year, for the first time, the Opera was given before Spring Vacation. It was perhaps the hardest we have yet attempted and because of the limited time for rehearsals, it seemed up to the last moment as if it would be hardly pos- sible to put it on. But a rather poor dress rehearsal gave us a scare which brought our efforts up to at least the usual level and many people remarked that it was the best yet. The story of " Ruddigore " is the story of a line of baronets who are under a curse which obliges them to commit at least one crime a day on pain of death. Finally at the end, the latest baronet discovered that refusing to commit his crime is the same as suicide, which is a crime, so that none of the previous baronets should have died. They all come to life in the end and everything comes out all right. Of course every play has to have a heroine and in this case she is a very, very good and beautiful young lady who strikes awe into all her admirers because she lives her life entirely by the Book of Etiquette. " Ruddigore " is one of the least known of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas, which seems strange to us because of the many good songs and lines. The Opera was as good to look at as it was to listen to. The costumes were of the Empire period and very attractive. The scenery was better than ever. We had an added incentive toward making the whole thing a success because this is Mrs. Bailey ' s last year with us and we wanted to show our gratitude to her. We all realize that without Mrs. Bailey ' s splendid coaching we could never have done what we have in other work in music as well as the Opera. We all feel very sad at the prospect of losing her and we hope she feels how much we appreciate all she has done for us. PRINCESS IDA Last year the high school, with the same North Shore spirit, presented " Prin- cess Ida, " one of Gilbert and Sullivan ' s popular operas. And what a result! The plot is centered around a princess who is very much of a man-hater and who has started a school for girls. No men are allowed within the walk. The hero has been pledged to the princess since childhood and loves her greatly. But she refuses to have anything to do with him. Our hero is not to be trifled with so he, with two friends, decide to dress as women and in that way gain entrance to this secluded school. There are many extremely amusing situations and the audience holds its breath in the numerous narrow escapes these three young men have. Of course they are at last discovered. Who will forget the exciting spot when the princess falls into the stream and the ambitious lover dives in after her; and at the end of the first act when the walls are scaled by the stalwart warriors, later faced by maidens in blazing armor? Finally in the last act the wayward princess can no longer resist her ardent lover so all ends happily, as in fairy tales. 6S SUMMARY OF 1928 FOOTBALL North Shore 7 North Shore 18 North Shore 39 North Shore 32 North Shore 34 North Shore 13 1927 1927-28 142 155 297 New Trier (Fresh-Soph) o New Trier (Fresh-Soph) o Racine Coll 6 Chicago Latin o U. High o Harvard 6 Opponents 12 37 NORTH SHORE DEFEATS NEW TRIER TWICE In the first two games of the nineteen twenty-eight season, Country Day emerged victorious over the New Trier Freshman-Sophomore team. The first game, played at New Trier on October sixth, was quite ragged although very hard fought. The final score was seven to nothing. On the next Saturday, on a wet field, North Shore won, eighteen to nothing. The team showed great improvement over the last game and won easily. The next game was played on our field against the Racine College Prep School team. The result was never in doubt, the Purple winning by a score of thirty- nine to six. The Racine score came in the last few minutes, as a result of a long run from kickoff and a forward pass. The third victory of the season was against Latin. The Chicagoans came to North Shore with a good record, and held the first team to a single touchdown in the first half. Another touchdown was pushed over in the third quarter, and in the last period Latin, weakened by the loss of their captain, had three more touchdowns scored against them, making the final score thirty-two to nothing. On November third a team from University High lost to Country Day, thirty- four to nothing. North Shore showed an amazing ability to recover fumbled kickoffs, scoring three touchdowns in the first half from these. Another seven points were added before the end of the half. In the second half, U. High came back and held North Shore to one score. The last game of the season, played with Harvard at Washington Park, was the closest of the season. The game was the sixth straight victory, and closed North Shore ' s most successful season in its history. There was no scoring until late in the half when Harvard scored their touchdown. The outlook was as muddy as the field, but at the beginning of the second half, a seventy-five yard run from the kickoff tied the count. The game was close from then on, but in the middle of the last quarter, another touchdown was made by the Purple, for the winning points. 69 ._ . xln m 71 VARSITY BASKETBALL The purple cagers started out with a bang, winning seven games straight, after the early season set-back at the hands of the Alumni. Then came the crisis, the Latin game: the team failed to come through as expected and from that point on their morale seemed broken. They managed to squeeze out four more victories but the playing was ragged. The strain of three months of playing was beginning to tell. The return Latin game was the last straw; the team went to pieces and the result was the worst defeat in the history of the school. Mr. Anderson attri- butes the let down to the length of the schedule and says he will limit the season to ten games in the future. The season was really quite successful when you consider that of twelve games, we lost but two, and those to the same school. Also Milwaukee Country Day was defeated for the second time in the history of the two schools.

But in spite of such a handicap, North Shore managed to come thru the season with no defeats. During the first of the season, we had several games with the Winnetka Women at the Skokie Playfield. They were hard fought games, and served as excellent practice for the North Shore players. Our first game was with Roycemore, on Saturday, November 6th. During the first half, North Shore proved the better by four points, but in the second half the hard fighters from Roycemore came back with two goals to our one — the score ending 5-2. Our second game was played with Chicago Latin School on the Lincoln Park field, Saturday, November 24th. The weather proved more favorable, this time, but we did not seem to fight our hardest, even at that. The first half we managed to score four goals, but failed to rush the balls in the good old North Shore spirit. However in the next half of the game, our team bucked up and fought for six more goals — the game ended 10-1, our favor. 73 The last game of this season was with Carl Schurz on our field, Thursday, November 22nd. The field was covered with mud and, in places, completely submerged. It seemed more of an aquatic meet than a hockey game. However, in spite of it all, both teams fought pluckily — our team succeeding in maintaining equilibrium long enough to smash through 6 goals, and hold the opposing team till the whistle blew and the game ended 6-0. GIRL ' S BASKETBALL SEASON This season North Shore had five outside games — both first and second teams playing — and also Junior and Senior class games with New Trier, towards the end of the season. The first game for both teams was with Carl Schurz in their gym, on January 30th. They distinctly outplayed us from the very first in speed and technique. We fought hard but the first team game ended 38-29 their favor. Our impromptu second team was also played, ending 38-14, Schurz ' s favor. Saturday, February 9th, we played Starrett ' s team at their gym. This game proved slightly more successful for North Shore. We got the jump everytime, and after Starrett started off with a few points, we picked up and fought to a finish of 44 to Starrett ' s 32. Kemper ' s first and second teams came to North Shore, March 10th. and dis- played great speed as well as accuracy. It was by far the hardest fought game for the first team. We got the lead once, and then they would come right up with several baskets. After wavering back and forth, till the whistle blew, and the score ended 36-28 — Latin ' s favor. The second team, however, succeeded in winning by a large majority, 20-11. Towards the last of the season, we had Junior and Senior class games with New Trier. The Juniors defeated those from New Trier, but the Seniors were not as successful.

A hushed waiting atmosphere like that which invariably proceeds some dire catastrophe, prevails the stillness. That expressive tran- quillity which obviously forbodes evil and becomes almost painful in its poignant tangibility. A low murmur intrudes upon the silence and increases in its ominous intensity as the rumblings of some volcano. Suddenly the sound swells into a deafening roar! Above all is heard the blurred tinkle of a bell in the hall which soon becomes lost amid frenzied shrieks and cries which follow. Crash! A door slams and jams on its hinges below. Crash! The air is rent with the wild yells of the triumphant. There is little thought for the poor wretches caught in the mad whirl and trampled relentlessly underfoot. Crash! A pane of glass splinters and, crashing to the ground, is unheeded by the dashing mob. During this scene of action, Mr. Smith and visitor appear at the " busy " end of the hall the former — pained but not surprised — the latter contriving a sickly smile — " A sham battle rehearsal?? " " No, sandwich line " replies our headmaster. WEEK-END STUDYING On Sunday night at eight o ' clock I sit down at my writing block To do my French and Ancient Hist Not to speak of Math I ' ve missed. Of course Latin and English too For which I ' ve just an hour or two. Good night! What Math I can ' t do that Let hope that he ' ll explain in class I must do my History now She said we ' d have a test — and how You say someone is on the phone? By-by Latin and watch me groan. I thought that he would never stop My gosh! will you look at that clock Gee but I feel sleepy and dead Guess I ' ll do my English in bed What will I do about my French Madame already thinks me dense. And so next day to school I go To show the profs what I don ' t know English, Latin, History, Math Each to be done in its own class. PHYSIOGRAPHY A diversion for tired young ladies of the Senior Class. Bell. Radiators are seen radiating heat. Another bell. Radiators are not seen radiating heat any longer; in point of fact they are completely hidden from view under a deluge of young ladies who have appeared, chattering amiably. Ten minutes pass all too quickly in this congenial fashion with Scotch jokes and whatnot, and our instructor enters the Laboratory, wandering rather detachedly from assignment board to barograph to thermograph; the rounds covered, the recitation commences ( " Hey bosco, what were we supposed to read for today? " " Je ne sass pass. " " Look at this map on p. 78. Now this shows what the whole chapter is about; we ' ll go on to the next one. " (But, Mr. Jones, we haven ' t done that). " Well, do it for tomorrow, and the next one too — (oh yes, Ives, isn ' t it in the drawer) let ' s see — me — and make some maps on rainfall and the one about (Brrrining!!) ah — er — ah — Mr. Grinnell — ah well ah now the one about humidity. " (his voice fades) " Hello? Yes — well — (The interval is seized for a number of Scotch jokes, remembered, alas, after class had begun.) " Well, now girls! This isn ' t a pink tea and you must pay attention all the time if you want to learn anything. Probably just when you ' re talking across the room there we ' ll be going over the very point you don ' t know — see! Some of you are talking right now. (Isn ' t it there, John? Look in the second drawer down on the other side). (Alee Ann ' s hand has been up for a half an hour) " Well, Alee Ann? " (She puts the question) " Well — ah — now, that ' s hard to answer — uh — well, I ' ll let you look that up for tomorrow. " (He starts drawing miscellaneous diagrams on the board. Con- versation is resumed.) " Oh girls! I have an awfully nice idea! " (He beams, young ladies pause in their discussion of the relative merits of Guy Lombardo to beam sympathetically.) " Now wouldn ' t it be nice if some of you could get a couple of sand dunes, and put them right out here so we could watch them every- day! Now who would like to do that? " It is a critical moment. Someone clears her throat, she is immediately the center of attention. But she jumps up ! Every- one jumps up! Then is uproar, bedlam, roaring, howling. In fact it is rather noisy and Mr. Jones retires discomfited behind a weather map. " We ' ll take that up tomorrow " he murmurs as the young ladies rush to upper climes, and he gazes a little sadly out the window, thinking — who can say what? But perhaps he is only ascertaining the wind direction, or the barometric pressure. Time — Any cold winter day about 8:25. Place — Dunlap Hall. Characters — Most everybody. First Pupil — " Whee! that walk up the hill by Knoslea was cold. Hope it ' s warm here. Gee! the raditor is off. (Proceeds to fuss around with radiator until a hiss proclaims somethings happened.) " Another Cold Pupil — " I ' m frozen. What ' s the matter? The furnace busted or the coal given out? " First Pupil — " Radiator won ' t work. " (More fussing and turning until a faint warmth penetrates in one small corner of the radiator.) Others enter and hover close to what little heat there may be, completely excluding it from room. Finally a grand noise and a healthy pupil enters with coat wide open and no hat. " I walked all the way — feel fine — what ' s the trouble — we need air — " (Throws open all windows with vigorous protests on part of others who are beginning to feel slightly thawed out). Room Teacher (entering) — " A little air is good but not too much — Please get quiet, the bell has rung. " (Roll taken, bulletin read and sundry other things done while windows remain wide open, blowing in Alaskan drafts. Someone feels it suddenly and a mad rush is made to close windows. 8:40 bell rings and pupils grab books and hurry for class with coats, hats and mittens on, remarking on general chilliness of the building and declaring the temperature is 12°.
