Published by the SENIOR CLASS 1930 WOSmXA 19— MIRROR 30 FOREWORD As the years roll on, the Mirror hecomes a more stable part of the school. After the novelty of publish- ing the " Mirror " had disappeared its material became forced. It has been the aim of the Mirror Board to in- spire, not compel students to write. We wish to ex- press a word of appreciation to those who have will- ingly taken a share of the responsibility in publishing this year book. 19— MIRROR 3 TO MR. JOSEPH B. RIDDLE We, the Senior Class, dedicate this year book with sincere appreciation for his inestimable influence in building the traditions and ideals of North Shore ; and for the desire for Social Justice he has inspired in us through the medium of his History classes. 19— MIRROR — 30 OPENING OF SCHOOL The beginning of school this year held a significance ■which many of us missed. It meant the beginning of the second chapter in our history. Heretofore all has been development ; now comes the test. At first, when student government, universal athletics, and other items of progressive education were just being formulated , everyone was ready to pitch in and help things along. Now that ive have definite traditions and established institutions it remains to be seen whether these traditions are self-operative ; whether they ' will continue to exist after those who built them arc gone. In view of the fact that our coming years are the test of tradition, it may appear incongruous that in Mr. Smith ' s opening speech he reiterated the word " change " so emphatically. That was not as strange as you would think. A definite attitude of progress is necessary to prevent stagnation. The spirit of our traditions must remain the same but the body must be altered with further development and construction. One excellent example of this is the American Constitution. Although its fundamental principles of " life, liberty, and the pur- suit of happiness " should always be sustained, never- theless many of its feel that much is faulty and out- worn in this document. Thus Mr. Smith did not wish us to fall into dependency upon the work of our alumni. The president of the Senior Class also insisted on a policy of progress and also one of " carrying on the good work. " Whether these plans have been fulfilled or have been so much talk we cannot say for a while vet. Per- haps we have built and " carried on! " Perhaps we have only hung motionless. Mr. Smith will tell us, maybe, three months from now in our next opening. 19— MIRROR — 30 MIRROR BOARD EDITORIAL STAFF Phelps Wilder ...... Editor Francis Moore ....

D. 7 h 17 1 9 MIRROR 3 WHO ' S WHO AND WHAT ' S WHAT " Ladies and Gentlemen, we are honored this evening hy the presence of several celehrities. I shall mention just a few of the most famous. The first on my list is Miss Elizabeth Reed White, foremost facial surgery expert. She noseher stuff ! Sitting, or should I say reclining " , next to her, is Miss Helen Walcott, a living example of her own success with permanent waves. On her right are the two famous grils whom you all know — the Misses Howe and Gerhard, the most successful graduates of the National Correspondence School. After devoting several years to their studies, they both graduated with Masters ' Degrees in " How to be Popular. ' " The tall blonde of the group is Miss Annie M. Mason, who won distinction by learning the art of driving - in one week of seven (7) days. " Smoothness and acceleration " is her slogan, and her car bears the scars of many a victorious encounter. The young lady with the natural auburn curls is Miss Bee Burlingham, the famous specialist in collisions (chiefly between radiators and knees). Next to her we have Miss J. D. Hill, famous modiste, and a perfect example of " How to Make your Clothes last a Lifetime. " The travel twins, nee Fulton and Ruffner, are living demonstrations of " What Travel can do for the Run-Down. " There we have the noted authoress, Miss Publius Street, who has recently written an essay on the subject, " Pompeiian Pups, and Why I like Spaghetti. " The biggest surprise is Miss Mary Cushman, who is a perfect example of " How to do things in a Big Way, " as is evidenced by the success she has attained in demonstrating Mademoiselle Teny ' s reducing machine. " Give these little girls a big hand, boys! " JuJildevU l i li l wlJ USmithU Z2L IbaviiJ IWil) IE5J 18 JUNIOR » 1 9 MIRROR 3 CLASS OFFICERS Robert Graves, L. Damman Presidents Motto: Vincit qui sc Vicit MIKE ADO ABOUT NOTHING or THE EXAMS ( )F TITIPU ACT I Overture — Study Hall sounds and Dunlap noises of Junior origin. ( Curtain ) The Scene is laid in Dunlap before Exams. Enter a lot of Juniors, all called by odd Japanese names such as Ju-Ju, which there isn ' t room here to print. Chorus — If you want to know who we are We ' re the Juniors at North Shore. Solo — A hopeless Junior I, a thing of flunks and failures. Another — Flere ' s a pretty mess In a week or less I shall have the bitter knowledge That I cannot go to college. Witness my distress ! Enter Mrs. Gundlach followed by Mr. Smith and Mr. Taylor. 20 19— MIRROR 30 Mrs. Gundlach— Our great P. D. Smith, virtuous man, When he to rule our school began Resolved to try a plan whereby Young men might learn some Latin So he decreed — Mr. Smith— From every boy and girl obedience I expect, I ' m the principal of this school — Mr. Taylor— And I ' m his Math, teacher-elect A more humane Math teacher never did in North Shore exist. To nobody ' s second I ' m certainly reckoned A true philanthropist. It is my very humane endeavor to make to some extent Each asinine brain a perfect mine of brilliancy and wit. Chorus — And in this test We ' ll do our best Exactly as he says. Exeunt all but Juniors. Enter Mmc. Stoughton Solo by same — Young man despair, likewise go to For CherTommy you cannot do You ' re " beaucoup Fou, " I ' m sorry for you You very imperfect tranlationer. Junior Solo — And I have loafed for a year or nearly To learn that that poem, which I don ' t remember This day to Miss Gilbert must be recited. Another Solo — At a desk in a school room a suff ' ring youth squirmed Murmuring " Dolor, doloris, doloro, " " My lad, that ' s not right, " his stern teacher affirmed, " It goes ' Dolor, doloris, clolori ' . " " Is it weakness of intellect, sonny, " she cried, " Or sufficient attention which you ' ve not applied? " With a shake of his head he despairingly cried — " Oh, Dolor, doloris, doloro. " He tugged at hi s hair to think better, I trow Gasping " Dolor, doloris, doloro, " And a cold perspiration bespangled his brow " Oh Dolor, doloris, doloro. " He sputtered and coughed as he stammered the phrase, Then he stared from his feet to the book in a daze And a twittering remark his companions did raise Whispering " Dolor, doloris, doloro. " Now I ' m sure that that youth flunked his next term exam Writing " Dolor, doloris, doloro. And it must have been useless for him just to cram Learning " Dolor, doloris, dolori, " For when the time came to proclaim all he knew The hounded refrain he in vain tried to sue, 21 19 — MIRROR — 30 Jt had fled from his brain in the heat of the stew, He wrote " Dolor, doloris, doloro. " All trump upstairs to exams, visibly dejected by the anticipation of the coming event. ( Curtain) ACT II Overture — Really very nice, hut drowned out by more noises of unmistakable origin. Scene — Study Hall before Exams. A group of Juniors is revealed sitting at the tables, getting ready for the exams. Enter Mr. Jones. Chorus — Behold the chief examinationer. A personage of awesome rank and title, A dignified and potent teacher Whose functions are particularly vital. Mr. Jones — As every term it happens that some victims must be found, I ' ve got a little list, I ' ve got a little list Of study hall offenders who I wish were underground And who never would be missed — Enter a few more Junior girls — late, as usual. Chorus — Comes a train of little ladies Hoping for at least a C. Each a little bit afraid is Wondr ' ing what her marks can be. Three little maids to school we come, In all our lessons we are dumb. Filled to the brim with lots of fun, Three little maids from school — To Mr. Jones — So please you, sir, we much regret if we haive failed — Enter Miss Gilbert followed by a lone and pleading Junior. Miss Gilbert- No, in spite of all rogation Such a theme I ' ll not discuss. And on no consideration Will I lightly pass you thus. The Junior — My brain it teems with English themes Both good and new, just made for you. Chorus (Waiting for exams) — With aspect stern and gloomy stride We sit to learn how you decide. , Don ' t hesitate to tell the tale, A dreadful fate awaits us if we fail. Mr. Jones — On these subjects you ' re all of you Dumb, dumb, dumb. Your answers though mam- Are not worth a penny, I think you had better sue — Cumb, cumb, cumb And be J uniors again in the fall. 19— MIRROR — 30 Chorus — Sit with visage pale Leaning on your desk Wond ' ring if we ' ll fail. Too afraid to ask ! Solo— Enter Mrs. Childs. Ah ! Pray make no mistakes, as you do in class, Be very wide awake, and you ' ll all pass Chorus — Let us try to write some French Though the hours are surely creeping. The bell rings, the suspended atmosphere is dispersed and the students Chorus — begin to talk among themselves. See how the profs their marks allot For A is passing, B is not, Though B is brighter, I daresay — Solo — The exams that we take in the spring tra-la Have a great deal to do with our fate. Another Solo — At a desk in old North Shore a Jun-i-or sat, Singing " Amo, oh amas, oh amat. " And I said to him, " Little boy, why must you sit? " Singing, " Amo, of amas, oh amat. " " It is weakness of intellect, boy friend, " he cried. Solo (addressed to Mrs. Childs) — Do you fancy that I ' ve labored long enough? Information I ' m requesting on a subject most distressing. Is three hours spent on Latin long enough? Chorus (leaving) — With joyous shout and ringing cheer — And that ' s what we mean when we say or we sing, Oh ! bother, exams that we take in the spring — ( Fast Curtain ) Solo in front of curtain instead of encore due to the fact that the cast has gone home immediately after the production. When I walk about the campus and I take a look around I ' ve got a little list, I ' ve got a little list Of pupils of the school, and teachers too, I ' ve found Who never would be missed, who never would be missed. There ' s the boy who throws the spitballs when you ' re running study hall Then asks you foolish questions that you do not know at all. All teachers who arrange it so you feel just like an ass By saying " please go on from there " when you ' re whispering in class, And friends who take wet towels and flip you with a twist, They ' d none of them be missed. They ' d none of them be missed. The prof who tells you coolly that your answer is the bunk, I ' ve got him on the list, I ' ve got him on the list. And those who make up college boards so everyone will flunk, Thev never would be missed, they never would be missed. All profs who give long lessons that it ' s better not to shirk. Then returning from vacation say " Let ' s get down to work. " The kids who throw ban ana peels on our gymnasium floor, The Seniors who at sandwich time take second and cry " No more! " The desperate dux of lunch line who expells you with his fist, I don ' t think he ' d be missed. I ' m sure he ' d not be missed. 23 19 MIRROR 3 24 SOPHOtlOR 1 9 MIRROR 3 CLASS OFFICERS Cornelius Watson... .....President Jean Lamson Secretary THE ALUMNAE REPORT ( Answers from the Class of ' Z2 on being asked to tell their doings ) I am sure that anyone who has led as good and beautiful a life as I have is very fortunate. During my twenty years as prison wardeness I have watched one hundred executions, taken p art in hasty hangings and the knife for fifteen guillo- tines. Lovingly, Nancy Thomas. 1 have recently established a school for rambunctious voungsters. I am so very interested in guiding each little sinner towards a useful life. Do come and visit me. Barbara Hobart. I do hope you will be able to come and visit me at the Zoo. Of course I am not in the Zoo, no indeed ! I merely help the animals solve their little individual problems. I take such pleasure in being some use in the world. Jean O ' Brien. Well, well ! T just got back from a trip around the world in a rubber ball. I got the rolling fever and I couldn ' t resist it. Patty Calkins. My life has been spent in quiet seclusion, digging for " arrongonianic rnerca- tontis " in far off Asia. Toodle-Doo, Eleanor Tanney. 19— MIRROR — 30 " All the world ' s a stage and all the men and women merely players. " I am no doubt one of the best. Come and see me in my latest creation, " Delia Dice. " Jean Lamson. Wearying of my vagabond life, I am spending my old age in a very tall tree on the plain of Shinar. Scientists consider me quite a curiosity and come miles to see me. D. Ott. During these last few years of my beautiful life I have completed a book entitled " Little Helps for Savages, " dedicated to the nature of wildest Africa, whose closest friend I have always been. Evelyn Totman. Just a line to say I am continuing my useful work in the Artie, and am helping the Polar Bears to reach a higher stage of civilization. Anne Palmer. I regret to state that I am at present in jail, because I accidentally put my husband in the coffee grinder, alas ! 1 can never drink another cup of coffee. B. Ballard. Our fondest hope has been realized, we are considered the greatest " Blues Singers on Broadway. We are now playing in " Blue Danube. " Come and see us. Marion Daughaday, Elizabeth Zimmerman. Just a note to say that I am a shoemaker and doing very well, thank you. Helen Fulton. I am a teller of dreams, a weaver of fortunes. My hand holds the fates of kings and dynasties. Come to me, ye faithful ! ( and we will have a game of Parchesi). Marion Thomas. If you should ever come to that odd corner of the world called Peakers ' Point do stop in at my little refreshment stand. I need customers so badly. Hopefully, Barbara Anne Sargent. I have had the fortune to revive an ancient occupation. Finding nothing else to do I build Pyramids for people who are going to commit suicide. D. Schmid. Do you like Brussels Sprouts? If you do, come out to my little farm in Brazil and I will give one. Briefly, Margaret Freyne. EXTRACTS FROM A SECOND-HAND BOOK DEALER ' S CATALOG, A. D. 1930 Adamson, Gordon, M. A.

Our year is up as an Eighth Grade Class, Here ' s hoping we all shall pass, And the joys of the Freshmen shall be our reward And vou may he sure that we ' ll never he bored. II. With a Burley leader to head our class And Crilly a shy and winsome lass, With the drawings of Harding and music of Sands, Comic cartoons of Armstrong and Laird ' s commands We forward will march all in a hand For in study is strength and together we ' ll stand. III. Now come our athletes, Bersbach and Stern, They ' ve a reputation that ' s hard to earn. Give Walcott a nook with a very good book, And Bulgar a basket and ball. Give Zur Welle a line in a dance. That ' s fine ! And Friedmann in a tank will shine. Give Schumann a horse and happy she ' ll be, That leaves Leonard and Bartelme. 36 19— MIRROR — 30 A M ERICA IN WINNETKA— 1970 " Well, well, well, back in Winnetka again. I wonder if our old school is there still. Hey, pilot, light on that football field. You can ' t? Oh, well, fly low and I ' ll jump. " Bruce Smith and I, successful stock brokers, jumped out of his aero- plane. We walked over to " Doc " Gillies. " Well, well, Jim, imagine seeing you here. I flew out here in one of Kaul- back ' s new Aerotaxis. He just got the patent down at St. Louis. " " If it isn ' t Bruce Smith and Ed Mills! " ejaculated Gillies. " I hear you two went into a brokerage house, buying out Willy Wilder. That ' s great. Look over there. See that tall boy running around the end? Well, that ' s Charles Ford Harding IV. Charles was successful in business, he ' s now president of Public Utilities and Aircraft Corporation. Say, have you heard the news? Durham just got a message from Mars on his new radio. Well, so long. " We walked over and shook hands with the headmaster, Mr. Butz. He told us that Daughaday was here in town for the Plumbers ' Convention. He was pre- siding. He said too, " Mayor Strong will be here soon with ex-President Goodwin and Secretary of Farm Relief Flack. " " What happened to Joe Coambs, Herby ? " asked Bruce. " Joey? He became successful in the Chicago Detective Force. But he was fired because of a gang war he was mixed up in. Now he ' s down enjoying winter at Little America with Secretary of Crime Beman. " " Gee, " I said, " I bet you Winnetka people feel proud with Sampsell president of the Western Hemisphere, don ' t you? " " Anyway we Evanston people feel proud to have Harvey Huston governor of the Great Lake region, " said Bruce. He looked at his watch and decided we had better go. We climbed into the cockpit and soon had a bird ' s eye view of a place that brought back pleasant memories — memories of days never again to return. A GLANCE INTO AN EIGHTH GRADE DOMESTIC SCIENC CLASS " What are we going to make, Mrs. Taylor? " " Not tapioca pudding! Of all the things to cook must we do that? " said one of the girls. Remarks of disapproval are heard, and finally Mrs. Taylor ventures to say that the course is taught as she thinks best, and tapioca pudding is a fine des- sert if prepared correctly. A loud crash is heard as several pans fall out of the cupboard onto the floor. Everyone scatters as they know that they shouldn ' t be around the cupboard until later. The pudding is prepared, the most serious mistake being that half a cup of salt was used in the place of sugar. This was not discovered until the pudding was served. The dish washing problem then arose. Water was splashed about at random, a plate was broken, and several people began to feel ill from the effects of the tapioca pudding. Two bells echoed throughout the building and once again all was quiet in the Domestic Science Room. 37 19— MIRROR — 3 38 ■y 19— MIRROR 3 CLASS OFFICERS Joseph dePeyster President Frances Dam man Secretary OUR COMEDY HIT I. One most dreadful day we gave a big play. The " Comedy of Errors " ' twas called. We all made a mess trying to put on our dress. I assure you all that up and bold we got, We remembered our parts and Our play was quite hot ' Cause we didn ' t forget them unless we forgot. II. Our mammas applauded and some teachers clapped And maybe a few schoolmates too, They may have yelled loud, But we know the crowd, It was ' cause that dry play was over. 39 19 MIRROR — 30 TH E I NSTITUTIO N This year the seventh grade, with their remarkable students, founded the most remarkable institute that has ever been established for genii. These are some of the unusual fetes that our students have accomplished : Robert Aldrich invented a machine to make people big. David Burt has devised a new and complete course for mastering the art of car- tooning in five minutes. Mody Butler mastered the art of an athlete.

A SHAKE. SPEREAN GRADE MEETING There came one day a miracle. The Seventh Grade called a meeting. " Hear ye, hear ye, the meeting will now begin, " cried Julia Burley. Alas, Warren interrupted, " I pray thee when will this be over? " " Alack, alack, there is no money, " cried Mary Lynde. Up got Patty Peron and declared in a loud voice that something must be done. Jean Ericson and Fannie Price were dreaming of by-gone days. Up spoke Francis Damman and Joe dePeyster wishing the meeting to be adjourned. " Villain, thou lieth, " cried Bobby Nathan. All were interrupted by George Watson ' s saxaphone. Then in came John Macy, Hilton Scribner, and David Burt crying, " What goeth on here? " " Hear me. Hear me, " calleth Jane Par- ker, " where are Louise Stein, Mary Trumbull and Barbara Totman ? " " Alas, absent- minded again, I dare say, " cried Bunty Smith. " We shall then put ourselves in Martyrdom and seek them out, " declared Bobby Aldrich and Ted Counselman. " Thou shrew, ' tis only because they wanton to leave, " calleth Caroline Sutherland.

It was a perfect " Comedy of Errors. " 40 1 9 MIRROR 3 SIXTH GRADE 42 1 9 MIRROR 3 FIFTH GRADE Long ago the Norsemen believed that the world was contained in a huge tree which they called Ygdrassel. Up in the branches in beautiful palaces lived the Gods. Beyond the great wall that protected Asgard, lay Midgard, the land of men. A wide river separated Midyard from Jotenheim, a dreary land of icebergs which lay at the roots of the tree. Here lived the fierce Giants, the enemies of the Gods. We made this map to show you how the world seemed to the Norsemen. 43 1 9 MIRROR 3 THE FALL OF TROY One morning the Trojans looked out on the plain where the Greeks had camped and lo and behold the Greeks weren ' t there. While they were looking around to see if they could find any signs of them, they found one, named Sinon, and they asked him whether the Greeks were gone forever, and, if so, what was the big wooden horse over there in the reeds? Sinon told them that they had finally left and had left a horse as an offering to Athene. They built it so high that it would not pass under the Trojan gates because they did not want it ever to be a benefit to Troy. So they all got together to decide whether to bring it in or to leave it in the reeds, but most of the Trojans were in favor of bringing it into the city. They all got to work bringing it in, knocking away the walls to make a hole big enough for the horse to pass through. Finally they got the horse through and then went to sleep. In the middle of the night Sinon got up on top of the wall and beckoned to the people on the other side of the wall, opened the gates and all the Greeks came in, seized Helen and set fire to Troy. And thus the beautiful citv of Troy turned into a black mass of ashes. I know of a land, a land far away Of Hellas beautiful Hellas. I ' m longing to be there today In Hellas, beautiful Hellas. The green grass is growing, The blue rivers flowing i [ E L L A S In Hellas, beautiful Hellas. The children are playing But I am saying, Hellas, oh beautiful Hellas, I love that land, that land far away. Where I am longing to be today. THE SLAYING OF HECTOR When Achilles, in his wrath, heard of the death of Patroclus, he called his mother Thetis to get his armour. She came back with the finest in the world. When he had donned it, he jumped into his chariot and rode to the Greek Army, leading it up the plain, killing all the Trojans before him till all were in behind the Walls but Hector. Everyone was yelling for him to come in but he did not heed them. Meanwhile Achilles was getting nearer. When he drew close enough he jumped off his chariot and fought Hector. First, Hector threw his spear, but it did not injure Achilles. Then Achilles threw his and it perced Hector ' s neck so that he fell. Then Achilles struck him again so that he was dead. Then Achilles dragged Hector around the walls of Troy behind his chariot. So this is how Hector was slain. 44 19— MIRROR 3 QUEEN ANNE ' LACE Dear old winter is here again, Hurrah for dear old Winter.

West wind makes the trees sway everywhere. Little Jack Frost is here. He has painted pictures everywhere on the window panes, Christmas Trees, stars and fairies in fairyland. OURSURPRISE At eight-thirty this morning the door opened and in walked two boys carrying a big box. We ran up to the box, and what do you think it was? Our new pet, The monkey. We were so very glad. None of us have ever taken care of a monkey. We danced with joy. ENNY AT FAI R THE Every year we have a school fair. We took Jenny to the fair. There were other animals there too, but Jenny won first prize. It was a blue ribbon. All the people thought she was so funny and cute. They played with her. JENNY ' S WEEK-END WITH US Jenny went to my house yesterday. Oh she was funny. She climbed the pipes and frightened Annie. Annie held up her hands in surprise when she saw Jennie come in the house. She does not like monkeys. Annie said, " Um, I ' m go- ing to leave if that monkey stays. " All day Jenny stayed out of her cage. All night she stayed in her cage. I enjoyed her very much, too. Jenny enjoyed herself 45 19— MIRROR — 30 SECOND GRADE The Second Grade is studying about Hopi Indians. We have built a pueblo and a mesa. A pueblo is an Indian village and a mesa is a hill and a pueblo is on it. To make our mesa, first we went over to Mr. Bollinger ' s with Mr. Dyke and got eleven top boards and two cross boards and four short legs and one leg in the middle. The pueblo we made out of boxes. We piled them on top of each other to make three with ladders from one story to the next. We cut out doors and windows and glued on chimneys and made beams out of dowel rods to hold the roof up. We are covering our boxes with textone to make them look like adobe. There are clay ovens for baking piki bread in front of the pueblo. The maize we planted with Miss Wied has grown four inches tall. We are weaving rugs and dyeing wool. Brown we dyed with onion skins and skins and cockineal bug gave us lavender. We are making pottery and jewelry with Indian designs on it. We have katcina doll and Indian drums and many pic - tures of Indians. We made two Indian masks. Mrs. Brein taught us Indian sign language. First she taught us and then she taught us " going " and then " home. " Then we could say, " I am going home. " We painted blankets to wear in an Indian game. Miss Ellison taught us the Indian game. We made two wands and eight tally sticks and blue rosettes and green rosettes for the game. Miss Wood taught us two Indian songs to sing with the game. 46 1 9 MIRROR 3 FIRST GRADE A DOVE DIARY KEPT BY THE FIRST GRADE February 28, 1930 — John went out to the farm and got some hay. He brought it into the First Grade room. The hay was wet and cold. We put it in a box and put it on the radiator. We went to Morning exercise. When we came back we put the box in the cage. We went to lunch. When we came back from lunch, the doves were building a nest. March 3 — What do you think we found in the nest in the dove ' s cage this morning? Two white eggs. The mother dove laid them. She will have to sit on the eggs fifteen days. We hope then she will have two baby doves. We are going to try to be very quiet and keep away from the cage. We drew pictures of the doves. March 5 — Mother dove got hungry. She left the nes t. The father sat on the eggs to keep them warm. Miss Wied told us how the mother and father doves feed the little ones when they hatch. They chew food and then put it down into the throats of the baby doves. March 7 — We left the cage door open today so the cloves could come out. The father jumped out on the chair, but didn ' t stay long. He went back becouse he does not like to leave the mother alone. March 10 — In our . " First Grade Weekly " that came out today, we said : " The mother dove is sitting on the eggs. She seems very happy. We are happy, too. " March 11 — Some of us made nests and eggs out of clay. March 12 — The mother dove turns the eggs very carefully with her bill. She stretches her legs and wings. She must get very tired. March 13 — Sally brought a hard-boiled egg for the doves. March 14 — Joan is the dove committee. This morning she brought a hard- boiled egg. March 17- March 18- -We brought some lettuce from the lunch room for the doves. -The father and mother dove were both in the nest this morning. John brought a hard-boiled egg to school. March 19- for vacation. -The mother dove laid another egg.

When the season started, the outlook was poor, but bit by bit the team improved until at the end of the season a new record had been established — a record of win- ning every game and going through a season with the goal line uncrossed at the same time. NORTH SHORE 18— FRANCIS PARKER The first game of the season was played on our field in somewhat muddy weather. North Shore kept an advantage throughout the battle, winning a touch- down early in the first half and repeating the performance just before the end of that period. The second half was largely a punting duel, each team waiting for the break. A blocked Parker punt gave us the ball on their thirty-five yard line, and from there North Shore rapidly advanced to the third touchdown. The game ended without further score. North Shore failed to gain any of the three points after touchdown. NORTH SHORE 19— RACINE Racine College Prep school of Racine furnished North Shore ' s opponents for the second game of the season. The contest was staged on Racine ' s field under good conditions. North Shore ' s line had improved considerably since the Parker game and opened holes for the backs which netted two touchdowns in the first half. Racine came back full of pep in the second period, and our team made but one touchdown more before the final whistle blew. NORTH SHORE 13— MILWAUKEE Milwaukee ' s fast and tricky eleven met defeat on North Shore ' s field for the first time in history this season. North Shore held the lead throughout the game, putting over two touchdowns and completing one point after touchdown. Milwaukee put up a very hard fight, and nearly scored in the last few minutes with an extensive passing attack. It was the hardest game that the team had played up to that time. NORTH SHORE 7— LATIN North Shore suffered a let down after beating Milwaukee and was totally enfeebled during the first half of this game against an unexpectedly strong team. During the second half, North Shore made the lone score on a forty yard run. The game was well fought throughout the second half, but was without spectacular performance. NORTH SHORE 7— HARVARD North Shore played good football to beat our traditional rival, Harvard school, by a single touchdown. Although we scored but once, it is generally conceded that North Shore won by playing better football than their opponents. The first half was very even, Harvard having the edge by making a first down on North Shore ' s eight yard line, but our team held and the half ended without score. North Shore was within scoring distance early in the second half, but lost the ball. Sud- denly, Captain Ferry broke loose on our own twenty-five yard line and carried the ball over for a touchdown. The try for point was successful. Although Har- vard opened up a perfect barrage of passes, the game ended without further score.

From the beginning the game proved to be a harder one than was anticipated by our team. We were surpassed in speed and vivacity. Although we were in our opponents ' territory a good part of the time, we failed to make the desired goals, while Roycemore seemed to have little difficulty in scoring. NORTH SHORE 4— CHICAGO LATIN 2 On November 2, the hockey team met the Latin team on our field, and it was determined to win. The first few minutes of play showed that the two teams had almost equal strength, speed, and skill. The ball rallied between the twenty-five yard lines for the better half of the game. The first half ended with North Shore in the lead, by a score of one to nothing. The second half started out with a great rush by the visitors, which ended in a goal. This latter period sped along rapidly, Latin scoring two points to our three, which gave us our one and only victory of the season. NORTH SHORE 0— KEMPER HALL 2 The Kemper game, played on their field, proved to be a sloppy one, on the part of both teams. We should have had the advantage, as we have been playing hockey much longer than our adversaries. They managed to drive in two goals, while we could put the ball any place but in their goal. While we were in their ter- ritory, Kemper played an extremely defensive game, practically their whole team acting as goalguards. The game was not fought as vigorously as it should have been. NORTH SHORE 1— CARL SHURZ 1 As a climax to our season, our hockey team was tied during the last few min- utes of play by the Shurz team from down town. The game was ragged ; our players showed a little more skill, but we lacked the vigor necessary to drive in the goals. We had the ball in their territory most of the time, but there was no strength back of our attempted shots for the goal. BOYS VS. GIRLS On November 25th the great annual contest in hockey was held between the boys and the girls. It was a battle between the dexterity and skill of the girls, and the speed and strength of the boys. Due to the oncoming twilight, the ball, during most of the second half, was all but discernible, but the boys managed to see it well enough to score a 2-1 victory over the fighting Amazons. THE FOOTBALL DINNER One of the most pleasing features of this year ' s Football season was the din- ner held on December third, at the Indian Hill Club. Through the efforts of Mr. Wells the dinner was arranged on a moment ' s notice, in the absence of Mr. Ferry and Mr. Greeley, the fathers of the present and next year ' s football captains. The attendance was considerably larger than that of previous years. In addi- tion to the members of the squad and their fathers, there were several alumni, also with their fathers, and several men who took an active part in the building of North Shore. 55 19— MIRROR — 30 From these men and the alumni we learned some of the difficulties that con- fronted the school and its teams in the earlier days, and could see how much their work contributed to the earlier conditions of the present. Mr. Smith, as toastmaster, was a big factor in making the evening a success. Besides introducing the speakers, he alternated the humorous and serious as only he can do it. The 1929 and 1930 captains were called upon for history and prophecy, while their fathers, Mr. Ferry and Mr. Greeley, were asked to reinforce those remarks. Mr. Anderson then made the keynote spech of the evening, in which he paid a compliment to the 1929 squad for its willingness and co-operative spirit, and showed how the teams of previous years had helped build up the spirit that has become part of North Shore. At the conclusion of the dinner and the speeches, Mr. Smith announced that Santa Claus had arrived earlier than usual and had left with him a bronze plaque which was to signalize the achievement of the 1929 squad. After displaying the plaque he added that the donor had placed a fund in his hands which would provide similar tablets to signalize outstanding efforts of classes, groups or teams in future years. He expressed the conviction that the practice of recognizing co-operative success rather than individual performance would become a North Shore tradition and spoke of the example set by the 1929 squad in preferring to receive their letters from Mr. Anderson and not from the football captain in Morning Ex. The meeting closed with " O ' er the Fields. " MINOR FOOTBALL TEAMS LIGHTWEIGHTS This year the lightweight football team had a good season. They were de- feated but tied. The team on the whole worked hard to master fundamental de- tails. This is the reason for victories and tie scores which the lights brought in for North Shore. The second team played a strong Skokie team and lost by a decisive score. Mr. Wilder coached the lightweights for the first time. May he have even greater success in the years to come. MIDDLEWEIGHTS The Middleweight football team had a very successful season. The first game was against Skokie. North Shore proved to be the stronger team that day. The score was 27-0. In the middle of the season the heavier boys moved to the Heavy- weight team. The Middles scored another victory 27-0. The third game was lost by a score of 18-7. The next week was spent in good hard practice for its last game. The Middles won 26-6. Mr. Millet coached the Middleweights. The suc- cess of the squad was due to the cooperation between the team and the coach. HEAVYWEIGHTS The heavyweight football season of 1929 was only fair. It was held back by the handicap of inexp erience. The Heavies won two games and lost two. The game with Skokie was lost, 19-0. " The ship hadn ' t found itself. " The new players had not adjusted themselves to playing on a heavier team. With the addition of a few boys from the middleweight team the players assumed a different spirit and brought home a close victory of 14-13. North Shore won the third game 13-0. Skokie won the last game 13-7. Mr. Taylor coached the Heavies this year. The interest in the school taken by the faculty is clearly shown in the case of the three coaches, Mr. Wilder, Mr. Millet, and Mr. Tavlor. 56 19— MIRROR — 30 57 1 9 MIRROR 3 58 19— MIRROR — 30 59 19— MIRROR — 30 1929-30 BOYS ' BASKETBALL The increasing number of basketball players has made it necessary to divide the major squad into groups, the Varsity, Light-Heavies, and Lightweights. Though the Lightweight team only won three out of six games, it was known for its fast passing. The Light-Heavies consisted of players too heavy for the Lightweight team and with not enough experience to be on the Varsity. Though this squad had no big games to play its value to both the Lights and Varsity is inestimable. The Varsity squad has had a puzzling season. With hard work a fairly good team de- veloped from raw material. The first game was lost by a very small margin. As the season rolled on, the defeats more often were determined by very close scores. The continual occur- rence of close defeat makes one question, " Why? " In drawing conclusions lack of confidence and that last minute " drive " seem to be factors which caused our many defeats. On the 28th of December the annual Alumni game took place. While the light hearted alumni gathered in the balcony of the gym to give their moral support, the North Shore-ites contemplated reticently the final score. But the expected massacre never came. Late hours had proved to be the master over Foule, Wells, Dean, McKeowen and Alschuler. The Alumni won the game only by four points. MINOR BASKETBALL. TEAMS The Lights had a very successful team this year. Out of nine games they lost two and won seven. They used the quick breaking offense and displayed strong defensive work. The will to win which the Lightweights obviously possessed is the secret of their success. The Middles experienced a successful year, winning " seven out of nine games. Most of the games they won were determined by a high score on account of their outstanding ability to shoot baskets. Throughout the season this organization used good team work, no one person starring, but every man playing equally well. The Heavies were more equally matched with their Skokie opponents and thus afforded several exciting games to the cheering bodies on the sides. Thy played nine games and won five and tied one. GIRLS ' BASKETBALL SEASON RESULTS OF THE GAMES North Shore 29 Carl Schurz 27 North Shore - 35 Marywood 18 North Shore 35 Kemper Hall 41 North Shore 63 Starrett 14 North Shore 46 Roycemore 48 North Shore 27 Latin 18 The Girls ' Varsity basketball team played six games this season, victorious in four. The season has been more completely filled up with games than ever before. The first game of the season was, perhaps, the most exciting game (at least for those playing) of the season. As the score signifies, the game was close, fought between two teams equal in strength. The Marywood game brought out nothing unusual, a game not particularly close or fast. The Kemper game played at Kenosha proved to be a thrilling contest. North Shore dis- played not so much speed, yet good passing. Kemper used a practically insuperable line play. A disadvantage lay in the fact that the Kemper gym is a trifle small in comparison to the girls ' gym. The play sped up, after our team accustomed itself to its surroundings. Nothing exciting arose out of the Starrett game. It was characterized by the good passing of our team and good guarding by our guards. The Roycemore game — ah, quite a contrast to the Starrett game. Roycemore was fast and their forwards were sharpshooters for the basket. North Shore gained their points at in- tervals, while Roycemore ran up long scores at a time. This made the game seem l ess close than the score shows. The final game with Latin played on the boys ' gym floor was an ordinary game. Play did not speed along to make an interesting or exciting spectacle. THE ATHLETIC BANQUET This year the High School Girls inaugurated a new custom — that of having an Athletic Banquet for all sports, in place of the traditional Hockey Spread. The banquet was held on Saturday, March twenty-second, at six o ' clock. As an experiment, I should say it was a suc- cess, and worth continuing another year. After much hesitating the meal began. We were allowed to taste the food before the speakers began. Mr. Smith, followed by this year ' s captains of the hockey and basketball teams, spoke. After a few more mouthfuls of " food " Miss Fogg, our referee, told us what she liked about the hockey and basketball teams of North Shore. Possibly it was too much for us to hear. Miss McFall spoke last, reading passages from a book. We completed the evening by singing " Wake The Echoes. " 60 19— MIRROR — 30 61 • 1 9 MIRROR — 30 1 9 MIRROR 3 FACULTY The collector of data regarding teachers ' histories is as hard put to it as Diogenes with his lantern. He meets on all sides modesty and even taciturnity. If he does find a strictly honest person, it is with regret, for he, like other reporters, is looking for a good story. There follow some tales of the wandering of this hypothetical Diogenes. Some years ago his lantern lit up a room of a dignified old house in Litchfield, Connecticut. The sound of sleigh bells and the shouts of skiers came into the warm room, where Mr. and Mrs. Childs talked of the activities of the winter — of their pupils in the Litchfield High School, of the interesting members of the winter colony among whom were Mr. E. H. Sothern and Mrs. Julia Mar- lowe. Perhaps the talk was of Canada (Mrs. Childs ' early home), of Bates College or of graduate work at Yale or Chicago. Perhaps her travels and sojourning in Italy and Greece were already in the wind. On another side of the continent about that time a young girl with two older brothers stood in a street watching the cattle brought to town from the neighboring hills. A mischievious Mexican boy, coming up from behind, seized her, placing her upon the back of a goat. There she rode in the midst of the thundering herd through the town, until a rescue could be effected. Not long before she had seen a stampede of cattle in the same street. This happened in Phoenix, Arizona, and was probably the dawn of Miss McFall ' s be- lief in the necessity for athletics. She tells us that running away from Indians was the chief skill developed by the boys of the town. Miss Wied has been an industrious traveler. Besides teaching in Florida and in the west, she has seen much of Northern Europe, in company with Miss Rood, and has watched remnants of the Alaskan icebergs plunge thundering into the Pacific. She knows the tale they tell at Skagway of " Soapy " Smith, desperate gambler of gold-rush days, long sought by the government, finally killed. The officer who shot him was at the same moment laid low himself, but the perpetrator of the murder was never discovered. Madame Stoughton broke all records we know of for interna- tional travel. Her childhood was spent in England, but she lived and studied in both Germany and France. She has traveled in Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. She holds degrees of many kinds, one from the Sorbonne in Paris. She has relations in many European countries, a fact that makes war even more deplorable to her than it seems to some of us who do not realize its full sig- nificance. She is justly proud of her association with people of so many different nationalities and follows with great interest, as indeed most of us do, all movements, towards world peace. One at least of our number was the proud possessor, during her youth, of a black mammy. Mrs. Sands lived on a Southern planta- tion, in Tennessee. Her family moved later to Columbia, South Carolina. She attended the State University there, then taught in Columbia, and later in the Chicago Latin School. 63 19— MIRROR — 30 Mrs. Sands was one of the three original, or as she says " charter " members of the faculty now teaching with the school. The others as you know, were Mr. Smith and Mrs. Childs. During the first year arrived Miss Musson. The second year Miss Hale and Mr. Bollinger joined the staff. About one-third of the teachers at North Shore were " born and raised " either in the immediate vicinity of Chicago or in the Middle West. Mr. Taylor spent his boyhood on an Indiana farm and attended Earlham College, as did Mrs. Taylor, but his master ' s de- gree comes from Columbia. Wisconsin is the native state of Mr. Dyke as well as Miss Wied. Mr. Grinnell ' s ' home and educational ramblings are traced through Michigan, the State University being his Alma Mater. Approaching Chicago in his Plane, Diogenes might have seen Miss Gilbert poring over the books at Rockford College or later at the University of Chicago, whither she came, bored with her Columbia Master ' s degree. She liked the Park School in Buffalo, but the chances are that she will stay at North Shore for a while since she is here sur- rounded by her favorite animals — Dulce and the Ninth Grade boys. Miss Rood was brought up in Chicago suburbs but seemed to relish her surroundings so little that she contrived to see a good deal of England, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Kalamazoo, Michigan. In 1929 she and Miss Wied attended the New Era Fellowship Conference at Elsinore, about which Mr. Smith has reported with such graphic details. Mr. Riddle was of that goodly company, and like the rest involun- tarily breaks into Danish when speaking of his experiences. Perhaps his years of work in the International Center at Hull House accounts for this fact. Mrs. Brcin studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and at other Art School s. In this year, her ninth at North Shore, she believes that the children are doing better than ever. The Sxith Grade exercise on Egypt seems to warrant that belief. Before getting any training as a teacher, Miss Fargo taught five grades in two rooms of a country school in Michigan — a stage of her life she reviews with amazement if not horror. Later she did settlement work at Christopher House in Chicago. The debt we owe to the Francis Parker school is obvious when we realize that Mr. Smith was a student, or, most certainly, a respected member of the student body there. After graduating from Harvard and teaching at the Hill School (where his evenings were spent teaching to rows of empty seats in preparation for the morning Math lesson) he returned to the Francis Parker School as a teacher. After his wartime service he joined a new venture of which our present plant and school activities are the cargo. A " flowing sail " to the ship and a " long trick " to our pilot! At least two other faculty members have taught at the Francis Parker school. Miss Fargo and Mr. Bollinger. Our most versatile American traveler is Mr. Wilder who was educated, among other places, at Antioch College, and claims to have been domiciled in twenty-three towns and cities. The unsympathetic critic may ask why he should find it necessary to move so often, but will discover that he is a minister ' s son. Mr. Corkran says that his general greenness is due to his having lived for 14 years, and those the most impressionable, in the Green Mountain State. Like Mr. Jones, he graduated from Wesleyan. Not content with a Master ' s degree at Flarvard, he aspired to greater heights, climbing above to the austere summit of Helvellyn in the English Lake Country. The history of Mr. Jones is shrouded in secrecy. Evidently he prefers sending question- naires to answering them. Rumor hath it he has taught in as many cities as Mr. Wilder has had to move away from. Caldwell, Idaho, the Ojai Valey in Southern California, New York State, Indiana, the University School in Chicago, have him enrolled as principal, teacher, or dean. This we gather from friends who have penetrated his disguise. Diogenes plane is flying westward, and will soon circle the planet. He pauses in Cali- fornia, above the scene of Miss Carey ' s childhood peregrinations. Our second grade teacher traveled a long way to teach in the Winnetka Public Schools. Now she has moved on again, an infinitesimal way, but a vital disctance to us. 64 19— MIRROR 30 Miss Griffin ' s year in Germany should be the subject of a longer treatise. Her en- thusiasm for the new education there has been transferred to us all. We should like to have shared her experience. The home of Mile. Jacob is in Paris. She holds a " Certificat " from the Acadamie at Paris. England, Spain and Africa are known to her, and she tells how she learned the geography of Africa. Years ago her father penetrated the jungles and plains of the French Congo. Today, over the ground he surveyed for that purpose, a railroad is being built, and the cross of the Legion d ' Honneur has been awarded him. Mile. Jacob has visited her sisters in the province of Senegal on the West coast of Africa. Her brother is at Rano, in Nigeria, and she boasts an aunt in Tunis. No wonder she can draw freehand maps of the whole continent of Africa. Miss Montgomery threatens to write a book on mountain summits, but remembers how frequently, as from the Matterhorn. the view is obscured and the chief sensation of the climb that of fatigue or hunger. The music department boasts of a high percentage of Easterners. Miss Wood, from the house of the Waltham Watch, is a graduate of Radcliffe. At the Semi-Centennial celebration of her college she was the soloist with the Boston Symphony and the com- bined Harvard and Radcliffe Glee clubs. She is fond of picnics and water fights. Mr. Landers, whose ascent is not traceable to any one geographical neighborhood, has also become famous outside the bounds of the school. Not only has he helped carry- on the Gilbert and Sullivan tradition here, but he, like Miss Hamilton has had a success- ful appearance before a Chicago audience. Such a trio of voice, violin and piano all in the department is not to be scoffed at. The second noted member of the faculty infantry (second only to Mr. Landers) is Mr. Millet. He is believed to hold the record for dinner invitations, though he refuses to divulge the number. He and his companion-in-arms, Mr. Landers, spent four years in the vicinity of Boston, in a well-known institution from which they obtained an honorable discharge. Their Alma Mater was Harvard. Before going to Smith College, Miss Hale, another Easterner, lived on a large dairy farm in Massachusetts. The West, the South, and unnamed countries of Europe are charted, but too vaguely for our purposes, on her travel map. Aside from teaching at the Chicago Latin School and at Kemper Hall, Miss Harvey has not divulged the story of her previous existence and one must guess of the other wanderings which should go down in the annals of the faculty. Mrs. Grundlach is a graduate of Northwestern, as is Miss Fuller. The secretary oc- casionally turns longingly towards the West in midwinter. Mrs. Greeley, formerly a con- firmed Easterner, now seems to be settled permanently in the vicinity of Chicago. She is at present chief sponsor of the women ' s hockey movement, being president of the North Shore Association. Of all the silent workers on the faculty. Miss Bacon ' s activities perhaps reach the farthest. Canvas under her hands becomes a stained glass window on short notice. A cock that once strutted beside a cabbage leaf in her farmyard overlooking Lake Michigan finds his way with no apparent difficulty to one of the display rooms in the Art Institute. Two years ago Miss Radcliffe taught at the Bennett School in Milbrook, New York. This knowledge is not necessary, however, to prove her a specialist in her line. Earlier experience was acquired at a school in North Dakota. From what she says of the stu- dents there it appears that one or two of our grades could show even the gamblers ' youngsters a thing or two about noise. Miss Ellison and another member share the experiences of a summer in Michigan when we were very young. Hard manual labor, accidental fall in the river when swim- minge was taboo because of the dangerous current, are memories sunk in oblivion. Mrs. Droegemueller has broken all records, in breaking an ankle and an elbow during the year. These terms are not strictly medical, but the reporter must have his story, and certainly it sounds no more than equal to the inconvenience and discomfort suffered. It would take all the brawn of the football team to extract from the Andersons their life stories. Thus, moving with a force, however irresistable, the reporter ' s plane crashes against an immovable wall and so farewell. 65 1 9 MIRROR 3 66 19— MIRROR — 30 EXAMS A little girl sits at the side of her desk Droops on little hands little gold head.

" Mr. Surrette : " It reminded me so much of my front door at home " The Cast: " The properties and costumes just suit us !

For the benefit of this minority we set forth our creed as follows : To humanize the world ; to embrace all creeds, sects, and all nations in a universal brotherhood ; to promote the highest ideal of citizenship and civic duty throughout this vast universe of man. To carry out its purposes, Trois-Trois has a beautiful system of organiza- tion : The three charter members, who established Trois-Trois more than a year ago, constitute the governing body or " Maxami. " The two " brothers " who aided the early achievements of Trois-Trois have become associate members with the highest privileges. Honorary Exemplary Memberships have been granted as especial marks of favor to special " august mentors. " The largest proportion of Trois-Trois is composed of Regular Members. The Royal Incantator regularly performs the proper rites and reads the proper poems on the special occasions. 19— MIRROR —30 FIRE DRILL RE P ORT (By Conscientious Reporter) Chairman of Committee : " Since Walter Strong is bigger than I am I ' ll let him explain this plan of get- ting out of Dunlap. " W. S. — (Pointing to diagrams on blackboard or on posters, one large one up- side down and the others too small to lie read ) . " It is all marked out on this plan so it is very simple. The people in this room count ten, then go through this door and turn it over in their minds. While doing this they go into this room through that door and come out by that door. " George Hale (interrupting) — " Now why do you go into that room at all? You have them going in and going right out again. " W. S. ( standing on his head to read the upside down plan) — " Oh, yes ! That ' s so they can get their sandwiches to eat. " Chorus — Oh yes ! W. S. — Now the people in this room go out by this right hand door. There is no left hand door in this room so all lefthanded people will have to jump out the window. We didn ' t see any other way to work it out. " C. Haas — " Mr. President, why couldn ' t the left handed people go out back- wards ? " W. S. looks around behind the blackboard to ask the Chairman of the Commit- tee what about that? Chairman tears his hair. W. S. says they will have to have another committee meeting. Then he steps up to the President of Town Meeting belligerently and moves that the report of the fire drill committee be accepted, as he brandishes his clenched fist. Six ' .

Hale — Yes! I want to know what we ' re going to do in our room in case of fire. We belong to the 350 First Families on the North Shore and our lives are valuable. We can ' t stay in the room and burn. I. Odell — Can ' t you go up through the roof? Mr. Riddle has the Seventh Grade Classes in that room and they raise the roof every day anyhow. After a few suggestions from the Seventh Grade the meeting adjourns. 69 19— MIRROR — 30 SOCIAL ACTIVITIES VACATION FAIR The Vacation Fair was as interesting as usual, and perhaps more carefully organized this year than previously. Of course " the food went fast. Eager mobs fought around the candy counter and the ice cream booth, but when they had eaten their fill, they were glad to go the rounds, looking at the various exhibits. There were photographs, folders, bright flags and foreign curiosities in the travel booth, aeroplane models, costumed dolls and collections in their respective booths, besides the pets, dogs, cats, parrots, and even guinea pigs scattered around the gym. The Chamber of Horrors drew its accustomed numbers and all in all everyone seemed to be enjoying himself thor- oughly. This fair was an improvement over last year, inasmuch as everyone cooper- ated in bringing interesting things and arranging his own booth attractively. If everyone does his own share well, the whole effect is bound to be good. THE VAUDEVILLE 1929 On the evening of Friday, November 22nd, the " Vaudeville Special, " Train No. 1929, left Track 5 for its annual Entertainment Tour. The train was very full, in fact there was not an empty seat in it. At 8 o ' clock, when the conductor announced the departure of the train, the passengers came out of the Front Plat- form and took their seats. The first stop was Pittsburg, where a group of Musical riveters played some jazz selections. Thence the train went to Winnetka, where the faculty of a certain High School presented a farce of the early morning hours in the School Office — which performance was immediately added to the long list of successes scored dramatically by the faculty. Other stops were : Paris, where the artists of the " Kick and the Dance " did their stuff; Bombay, India, where an Idol ' s eye was stolen and the revenge duly taken in pantomime. And then, to pass the time between India and England away, two passengers (from the next car) gave some vocal renditions interspersed with wise cracks (i.e., humorous quips) which amused the passengers immensely. Then the special proceeded to England where Mr. John Macy sang some Gilbert and Sullivan songs, his singing being as usual — excellent. The passengers were then whisked to Podunk Junction, Iowav, where a " Bunch of the Boys " gave an extremely amateur Amateur Night per- formance, which provided good amusement to the athletic-minded, also the un- athletic-minded. The next stops were : Vienna, where a music-teacher gave a recital much to the disconcertation (?) of the pupils; Palestine, where Samson collapsed a temple with stunning effect ; the Twin Cities, where two girls played two pieces on the ditto number of pianos ; Alabama, where the Cotton Pickers clogged — and then again the passengers from the other car told the tale of Little Red Riding with a very uplifting effect on the Passengers. And then the High School Girls in the third car forward got encouraged and sang some songs (and danced) of their school life. Back to Pittsburg the train whizzed to find the riveters in a more pensive mood — and finally some steel-workers, in lieu of their football season activities, sang some Football Songs (much to the unrest of the Carnegie foundation ) . Slowly the train came to a stop, in Winnetka again, and the passengers went to the third car forward and danced to the tunes of a good orchestra until quit- ting time, when the conductor had to stop festivities. 70 19— MIRROR — 30 CHRISTMAS 1929 Santa Claus paid his annual visit to North Shore at the Christmas party on Decemher 18th. He was delighted with all the wonderful toys which were on dis- play for him, that the boys and girls of the school had worked on for two weeks. In fact we had such a lot of toys, games and books this year that there was only room for about two-thirds of them in the gymnasium. Santa talked to us all for a few minutes and then he sat down and watched the lower school dance with the upper school. He was greatly entertained and laughed heartily when the faculty got all mixed up and some of them forgot part of their dance. It was great fun and just before Santa left he presented gifts to each grade of the lower school and wished us all a Merry Christmas. THE DANCE Early in February it began A small and yet unfinished plan. The committees were selected. Some boys and girls objected. The first question we had to decide Was from where the money would be payed. Each Freshman his pockets had to empty And when that was over there seemed to be plenty. The committees then began to work, And from this job they did not shirk. It was going to be a St. Patrick ' s dance And all were preparing for a fine prance. VALENTINE PARTY On Friday, the fourteenth of February, at Eleven o ' clock, the Valentine Party was held in the boys ' gymnasium. This part} ' was sponsored by the first grade who gave a little play depicting the well known story of the tarts from Alice in Won- derland. The regal procession came in, and the king and queen seated themselves on their thrones. The king then said that he would like some tarts ; so the queen of hearts made some tarts which were stolen by the knave of hearts. This caused much commotion in the court until the thief was found. The king and queen then departed accompanied by the court. The commoners then participated in dances with each other. All the boys and girls had made favors, and upon taking partners, exchanged favors. The danc- ing went by grades, and the faculty also partook. Throughout the period the or- chestra played and acquitted itself well. The party was a great success, one of the best we ever had. 71 19— MIRROR — 30 THE SENIOR DANCE The Senior class gave the first dance of the year on September 27th, shortly after the opening of school. As is the custom, the Seniors made their dance very informal. Sporting goods reminiscent of vacation experiences adorned the walls and a section of the dance floor. Cold cider was served beneath a vividly striped beach-table awning. A widely varied assortment of porch furniture gave a cool atmosphere. Patrons of the dance were urgently asked to wear anything pertain- ing to their summer activtiies. They responded nobly ; every imaginable type of dress and adornment was in evidence. The first dance of the year must be one of informality, because newly arrived students, fresh from the great outdoors, find it dull at an ordinary school dance. Therefore did the Seniors strive to make the first dance not only informal but enjoyable, and the multitude which attended and made merry to the vagaries of a peerless orchestra seemed to consider their hosts successful. THE FRESHMAN DANCE On Saturday, March 15, the freshman gave their dance. There was a large attendance and all seemed to enjoy it. Tom Brown ' s snappy orchestra started at eight on the dot, the day ' s work of the freshmen showed up well in their decora- tions of green and white paper streamers, giving a tent-like effect. At either end the basketball nets were filled with green and silver balloons, while large green clover leaves decorated the walls. The orchestra alternated its fast and slow tunes well, and people started to dance with the beginning of a piece, which is one proof they were enjoying themselves. The refreshments were popular. We understand the financial end was run as well as the dance itself. Above all, the cooperation of the freshmen made the dance a success. 72 l 19— MIRROR — 30 Drhmh We have had excellent cooperation this year in the dramatic department. Through the industry of certain students we have been able to add much permanent equipment such as steel batons, permanent steps, new black velvet curtains and new border lights. Miss Bacon has worked untiringly on the scenery, costumes, wigs and properties. As well as Miss Bacon, Mr. Bollinger ' s efforts in equipping the stage for the different pro- ductions have been untiring. We are deep- ly grateful to them both. Mr. Landers made the musical end a decided success. Miss Radcliffe has improved the morning exercises beyond belief — they are now very worthwhile and enjoyable. Mr. Smith again has shared with his dramatic abilities and been responsible for the pleasure we have derived from producing plays and the opera. The stage committee has been on the job constantly. Four Sophomore boys have worked extraordinarly hard in the scenery department. They built the scenery for the Christmas, Senior and Sophomore plays and for the opera. Above all, we are deeply grateful for the interest taken in our opera by an officer of the Winnetka Fire Department. 73 19— MIRROR 30 CHRISTMAS PLAY The Christmas play was given by the eighth grade as usual, under the direc- tion of Miss Raddiffe. It was a miracle play and following the custom of these old plays, it did not take place on the stage alone, but all over the auditorium. We saw a shepherd in the field frightened by the star but happily tempted to follow it, and we saw each of the three wise men start out on his journey to Bethlehem, and a scene in Herod ' s throne room. The scene at the manger was lovely. Miss Bacon was largely responsible for the wonderfully effective scenery, although all the grades down through the fourth helped to paint in some of the different scenes in the " stained glass " windows. A selected monk ' s choir on the stage and a chorus of nuns in the balcony completed the effect, and sang some beautiful hymns and carols to the accompaniment of an organ. MIKADO Perhaps the most popular opera by Gilbert Sullivan is the " Mikado, " whicn was the choice for this year. The Mikado, a gentleman with a blood-thirsty vein, orders an execution to take place at Titipu and Koko, the Lord High Executioner, despairing of finding a victim, frames a false death certificate with many gory details. The supposed one is Nanki Pooh, the Mikado ' s son, who, disguised as a minstrel, has married Koko ' s ward, Yum Yum. Just as the Mikado has imposed a deaths by boiling oil on Koko for killing the heir to the throne, Nanki Pooh appears and saves Koko ' s life, bringing the opera to a happy close. The per- formance went off with a great deal of vigor and pep, due mostly to the noble efforts of Mr. Landers, who filled well Mrs. Bailey ' s position. Mr. Smith and Miss McFall helped in offering suggestions for " business. " With the help of Miss Bacon and Mrs. Howe the costumes were very effective with conventionalized wigs and bright kimonos. Mr. Bollinger and the tenth grade boys made most of the scenery, consisting of two jay screens and an arch. The opera has brought a new improvement for our stage, namely, the black cyclorama. It played an important part in making the opera perfect. We enjoyed giving- this opera, even though it was a little harder than usual, because the audience were so well acquainted with it. THE COMEDY OF ERRORS On March twenty-first the Seventh Grade presented " The Comedy of Errors. " Miss Montgomery and Miss Radcliff coached the students. The play was a suc- cess but the audience must have found it more than a mere comedy of errors with the rapidly changing cast. As for Mr. Shakespeare, he would have been surprised to see instead of two pairs of twins, as he planned, two pairs of quadruplets. The mothers did an excellent job off stage tearing the clothes of each person as he or she came off the stage and putting them on another. Each person in the grade had an opportunity of acting by changing parts. 74 19 MIRROR — 30 " TRELAWNEY OF THE ' WELLS ' " On Friday and Saturday, February 14th and 15th, the Senior Class presented " Trelawney of the ' Wells, ' " by Arthur W. Pinero. The plot centered about Rose Trelawney and Arthur Gower. After many experiences the two lovers came together at the end of the play. English char- acters of every description take a minor part to give the play more atmosphere. The Senior Class enjoyed trying to interpret each of their respective parts. There were innumerable possibilities for good acting. The Seniors took advantage of these opportunities. The class made their own scenery and supplied the properties. THE THANKSGIVING PLAY The Seventh and Eighth grades produced the Thanksgiving play. To start it off, the Juniors and Seniors sang a Thanksgiving Song, which put the school into the spirit of Thanksgiving. There were four short scenes in which was enacted the story of the first Thanksgiving celebration. The actors fitted into their parts well. The Indians showed the Pilgrims how to plant corn. The Pilgrims dis- played their friendship toward the Indian by smoking the " peace pipe. " Along with the simple and effective scenery, the costumes and good acting made the play very successful. THE RIVALS On Friday, February the 28th, the Sophomore class presented " The Rivals. " by R. B. Sheridan. " The Rivals " is a comedy centered about a sentimental girl of the eighteenth century and a young man who attempted more than he could do. Some of the minor characters were very amusing. One in particular was that of Mrs. Malprop who, as most of you know, is famous for her magnificent English. The play was long and the cast changed frequently. The scenery was simple and the furniture was borrowed from the homes of the class members. THE KING ' S ENGLISH Presented by the Freshman boys on March the Seventh. A cannibal island provides the background of the play. There are two kings on this island, each ruling a shore. Ripley, the Irish king, is proud of the fact that he has taught the cannibal king ' s daughter how to speak English. For teaching Kawa, Ripley receives two out of every ten tourists cast on the shore. Ten prisoners of every description are cast on the shore. Ripley, who ordinarily worshipped anyone who spoke perfect English, turned back the faultless professor and accepted from the ten a young gentleman who spoke only fairly well. However, he spoke the English language as Ripley so that Dick was saved from being eaten by the cannibals. The different prisoners were very amusing. 75 1 9 MIRROR — 30 76 19— MIRROR — 30 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Allen Ferry Chairman Terms 1 and 2 Francis Moore Terms 1 and 2 Jeanette Hill Terms 1 and 2 Dorothy Gerhard Terms 1 and 2 Annie Mason Secretary Terms 1 and 2 Louis Dean Treasurer Terms 1 and 2 Charles Haas Term 1 George Hale Term 2 THE UPPER SCHOOL GOVERNMENT The Student Government has continued on the same plan as it has run on for several years. The Executive Committee has performed its duty of calling the meetings and organizing the business for those meetings. Practically speak- ing, it has, as before, legislated this business. In the first place, the business h procured by the Committee and brought up before the assembly, where it is dis- cussed. Any difficulties or questions which may attend its legislation are threshed out in that meeting and the problem is put in form for introduction to the assem- bly. In due form the bill is presented to the Town Meeting. If any question is raised, the Executive, in most cases, has foreseen the difficulty and is ready to explain it. Thus, the bill, seemingly in its best form, is passed without much question, and those in the assembly merely vote for it. Consequentlv all the ex- perience of legislating " the question is confined to the Committee, and this is con- trary to our desire to educate the whole assembly. On the other hand business which is brought up by anyone ot her than the members of the Executive Committee has been found to be generally unorgan- ized, and the resulting condition is the accomplishment of nothing, or hasty pass- age of an inadequate bill. The Executive Committee, realizing the stagnant condition which Town Meet- ings have reached, has made attempts to devise a means of improvement. The re- sult was the " Constitutional Investigating Committee. " This was a body consisting of twenty-one members elected from the student body, excluding those in the Execu- tive Committee. This group, having elected officers, investigated the present govern- ment and formulated a plan for its improvement. THE LOWER SCHOOL GOVERNMENT The Lower School held town meetings the same days as the Upper School. We held these meetings because of many things which needed our attention, such as the care of the grounds, the care of the buildings, and the general behavior about the school. Each room elects a president and other officers, as they needed them, and these officers met once a week to discuss the problems of the separate grades which, in turn, were taken up in the town meeting. The President of the Sixth Grade presided over the Meetings. Everyone, even the first grade, discussed. We seemed to have been able to come to solutions suitable to everybody. J 1 9 MIRROR 3 THE PURPLE ANDWHITE Editors — Jeanette Hill, Francis Moors, Charles Haas. Business Manager — Anna Howe Advertising Manager — George Hale Circulation Manager — Annie Mason Printing; Manager — Louis Dean. In accordance with the rule passed two years ago in the assembly, the Purple and White staff consisted of three editors, of equal rank — a Business Manager, a Circulation Manager, and an Advertising Manager. The Editors collected the material together and published it. The Business Manager kept the accounts, and the other officers performed the duties implied by the names. The aim of the staff this year was to put out a paper with good content — no " fill in " articles — news — and especially news of interest to the alumni — and to keep up the traditions of past years as to impersonality. The News Summary sprung from the need of sending news, commonplace to the students, to the Alumni. The first issue was published on September 16th, the first day of school, an achievement never before attained. From then on the issues were edited every two weks until the middle of January when the typography was put into effect. This change involved two things, a larger paper and smaller type ( in three instead of two columns). The headings were put in better-looking type and the whole paper was made better looking, and more like an interesting journal. The new and smaller type also made it easier to fit articles of all sizes into the columns. The subscriptions numbered 256 — a record — but next year there must be more. The advertising has been especially successful, paying half the costs of the issues practically all year. This was due to the colossal effort on the part of the advertising manager. 78 19— MIRROR — 30 LUNCH LINE COMMITTEE Looking over the past year, the Lunch Line Committee has made consistent prog- ress. There have been a number of improvements made in the system, including a new system of personnel, with a " dux " and a " sub-dux " ; a moving sign board to indicate which class is supposed to be going in; a bell which rings in the girls ' gym during the cold and rainy weather so that waiting in the cold is avoided; a careful time schedule giving the time for entrance to each class, based on the records kept for two months which show the speed at which the line moves. All of these advances have helped to improved the efficiency of handling the lunch line. The " dux " who runs the line is selected from the Junior Marshals (every Junior Boy) and serves for one day. The " dux " is then determined by a rotary calendar schedule. The committee has tried also to introduce what is called the " universal charge system. " The system provided for the elimination of the adding of each person ' s lunch, the charging of a standard price to all. It is very obvious from this report that the Junior boys have done some thinking. Next year ' s Junior class will carry out some of these ideas they have begun. GROUNDS COMMITTEE The grounds committee has done good work in keeping the grass in good condi- tion this year. They have attempted to build up a tradition. The committee has been prompt in getting out waste baskets and in putting up " keep off " signs where it has been necessary. The school has recently spent a considerable amount of money on improving the grounds. The grounds committee has tried to keep the grounds looking well to help the grass to grow by keeping the students from walking on it. THE FIRE DRILL COMMIT T E E The Sophomore Class chose four members for this committee from their group. Exit plans for all the buildings were devised, made permanent and placed in the fire drill book The Committee then made Fire Drill notices for each room. They consisted of tag board about twelve by eight inches with the plan of the room in which they were installed. A red arrow pointed the direction and where the students should go in case of fire. The Committee presented a plan in Town Meeting for a new bell system. It has always been necessary, in case of fire, for some person to run to the office and ring the bell at the desk. With the return of spring the Fire Drills occurred frequently, THE STAGE COM M ITTEE The Stage Committee consisted of two groups of the ninth grade boys. The first group took charge of the stage one-half of the year and the second took charge the latter half. The Committee has taken charge of the scenery necessary for the morning exer- cises and has put up the new properties and stage equipment that has come into its possession. They have tried to take care of the properties and see that others do the same so that people will be glad to give more equipment which is needed. ORCHESTRA The school orchestra is a little smaller this year than last but it has improved greatly. The orchestra practiced twice a week. The lunch period on Tuesday was used for mastering the more difficult spots. On Friday, the entire orchestra practiced together. With the steady improvement came an increasing pleasure in playing the music. The orchestra gave several good concerts in Morning Exercise, one at Skokic and one at New Trier and one for the Parents. Next year, the numbers of the orchestra will increase because the institution is a source of inestimable pleasures. 79 19— MIRROR — 30 LIBRARY COMMITTEE This year the library committee instituted a new system in the library. Heretofore students have signed for their books in a notebook. This system proved to be unsatis- factory because many books were lost and returned after the correct time. Under the new system each book has a card in it which is taken out and filed when the book leaves the library. Books may be kept out for two weeks and indefinitely by teachers and may be renewed by the students. Two cents a day is charged for each book overdue. To date the committee has collected about ten dollars in fines and a great deal more is clue. By this system less books have been lost and more money has been collected for more books. FLAG COM M ITTEE During the last year the flag committee has tried to reorganize the rules so that every class in the upper school has had charge of the raising and lowering of the flag for a week at a time. This plan has worked very well (with but few exceptions). The flag, ill fact, has only remained after dark a few times. The Freshman Girls were the Committee members, with Deborah Butler, Leslie Wil- son and Henrietta Boal as officers. TOY SHOP The Toy Shop was a great success this year in spite of its late start. The manager, Stokely Webster, and his two assistants, Jamie Odell and Carl Koch were elected right after Thanksgiving. Also Elizabeth Koch headed the Book Department, Louise Ruff- ner the Doll Department, Francis Wells the Paint Department and Betty Fulton took charge of the Game Department. The first sign of life was the traditional Morning Exercise. Speeches were made and Santa was located on the Radio after some ap- propriate static and music which sounded rather familiar. Santa spoke especially to the North Shore children, thanking them for their support and hoping that they would do as much for him this year. The departments were organized and the toys began to straggle in. Plaintive pleas in the bulletin, coupled with announcements in Morning Exercise, soon brought better results. Children were even seen bringing toys which had hardly lost the price mark. The toy department did not make as many different toys this year but rather an abundance of toys of the same kind. Careful though the arrangements in the gym were, with a little perspective, the display seemed dotted with wooden elephants. In fact, down in the shop, patient workers could be heard speaking about them in somewhat the same way as the grumbling " tommies " deprecated the everlasting plum jam in the war. However, carts, wooden alphabets and a few little autos, cradles and sleds were turned out. All the other departments contributed their services so that there were no bare spots on toy stand or " wet paint " signs. 80 19— MIRROR — 30 INDEX TO ADVERTISERS Adams, M.
