Seven 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Eight Light and Reflection It is the function of the Mirror to reflect faithfully and without distortion an image of the Past, and to light unwaveringly the path to the Future. This essence of the Mirror has been embodied in the art theme on the following pages, where physical Light and Reflection will be seen to play the leading role. 19 3 2 THE MIRROR R.

Eighteen 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Jun tors DE JUNIOR BRERS Well, honey, has I evah told you bout dem Juniors ovah in Dunlap? It seem dat Brer Walling was de early one, an he is a settin ' readin ' a book when Brer Parker walk in a mutterin ' bout tubes and wave lengths an sech like. " Mawnin, " says Brer Walling sez ' ee, den Brer Hamill an Brer Howe comes in arguin ' ' bout a toe-hold. De talkin ' sure did commence now, cause Brer Byfield breezed in — " Did any of yo all here de story bout . . . ., " he sez, but he stop abrupt-like upon the entrance of Brer Leslie an ' he continues wif somethin ' ' bout what he call physics. Next along comes Brer Fisher and Brer Young and den in comes Brer Burt wif his big camera and all de folks starts to pose pretty-like hopin ' dat he want tuh take dere pichures. Den Brer Hamill ' s voice was heard above de babble. He says, ' ' Lets lay for Brer Reilly and Brer Brown, " sez ' ee. So he places all de fellows in advantageous positions back of chairs and such-like wif chalk an ' dem erasers tings. A noise am heard in de hall, Brer Hamill he lay low. When de shadow cross de door, den stormin ' commenced. But it just happens, honey, dat de intended victims was followin ' Brer Webster and Brer Alschuler, so de got most of de stormin ' . But dat didn ' t stop no fight, for de rest of de crowd, Brer Butz, Brer Reynalds, and Brer Philipsborn had come in ready to join up wif most any fight. Brer Lund could hardly quell de riot, but he did, and all went well, till in starts Brer Renwick, asingin ' grand opery. Brer Stevens didn ' t come dat day, as usual. Twenty 19 3 2 THE MIRROR BEFORE REINCARNATION It happened that in the year 1900 there was a group of members of the animal species who took up their abode in a zoo of great note. The prize of this zoo was chimpanzee Sue — a monkey, brightly colored, which had been taken from the southern part of Africa — where she sojourned every winter on account of her health. Daughd, the cub, was the beast the children loved to watch the most. She would stand up upon her hind legs each time a strange child came near her, and then, with a good-natured lunge, would polk her ungainly paw thru the bars, while the child leaped back in terror, and while the other children laughed up- roarously. In the zoo ' s artificial forest lived numerous wild animals and birds. Nancy owl, perched on the limb of a tree, sat all day long, blinking her eyes and keeping her wells of knowledge to herself — altho sometimes she did tell something to Nanc, who immediately flew all over spreading everything she heard. Occasionally Henny giraffe could be seen standing near the owl and craning her neck for each trace of news — altho looking indifferent (in that strange way that giraffes have) to all she heard. In a sunny glade of that forest lived a deer and her daughter Madge. All day long the young animal could be observed stumbling after the sparrow for her news, or gamboling playfully on the green — the little dear! A fox, named Tayl, because of her beautiful hair inhabited a cave. Every day she would come into the middle of the forest, where there was an open space, to take the sun. Hattie bee and Mary mouse seemed to be entirely different from each other, but in reality they accomplished almost the same things. Hattie would buzz around busily all day long while Mary mouse would sit quietly the whole time. Down by a pond of glistening blue water lived the stork, Les. Of all the animals she was the most popular because of the joy she gave to so many of her spectators. Two dogs — Saint Barnard Annie and Mim, the fox terrier — squabbled and played together day in and day out, never seeming to tire. Occasionally they would chase after Laurie chipmunk, but they were never able to catch her. She was too quick for them, for she was used to running in and out of queer places, always gathering food. However, the strangest sight in the whole zoo was to see camel Jane walking around and around the forest trying to walk her mile a day, which is pretty far for a camel. Of course it is plain to see how happy this little group was together. They had become used to one another, and when the first of them died it was a great blow to the rest. However, one by one, they all died, and, as each one left this world, she heaved a sigh of deep regret, thinking sadly that she would never see the others again. But then, life is not so cruel after all, for, in the year 1932, Nancy owl (who had now been reincarnated as a young girl, and who went to N. S. C. D. S.) realized that some of the characteristics she had noticed in Daughd, the cub, were revived in one of her school mates. Soon, she discovered that all her classmates at N. S. C. D. S. were none other than her old friends of the zoo. Twenty-one 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Twenty-two 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Soph lomores INFERNO— AND POINTS SOUTH In the autumn of the year 2032, I was strolling thru a remote section of the woods, when I met what I considered a suspicious character. He was dark, and as I approached him, I noticed that his eyes gleamed like hot coals, and that he breathed smoke. Then all at once I recognized Mr. Corkran. " Well, if this isn ' t the devil! " , I exclaimed. " Yes, " replied Air. Corkran gloomily, " I am. I ' ve got a new job now. Much easier, too. " " Oh! " I said. " Come along with me, " continued the breather of smoke, " And I ' ll show you where I work. " Curiosity overcame me, and I followed him deep into the depths of the forest. On and on we walked, and soon I found that we were going down. In a few minutes the forest vanished and we found ourselves in a dark tunnel, ever descending. " So this is China " , I thought, after a few hours of this. " No " , said my guide, evidently a good mind reader, " This is . " , and then he named the place. Soon the tunnel widened, and on each side caves could be seen. In one of these caves I saw four people playing poker, they were all sitting on flames, yelling in pain. Upon coming closer, I recognized, from left to right. Charles Harding, Helen Bersbach, Spencer Beman, and Elizabeth Buchen. Next we came upon Elsie Earle and Ruth Friedman, wallowing in some molten lava, having the time of their deaths. As we entered another cavern, John Macy, and Ski W ebbe appeared out of some smoke. They rushed at us, screaming loudly, but Mr. Corkran soon turned them back with threats of complex sentences. Twenty-three 19 3 2 THE MIRROR I was greatly surprised to find a large group of girls down there, but there they were, having a bridge party. They were all bound in chains, but a little thing like that can ' t hinder Miss Bell, nor Miss Zeiss, nor Miss Harding, nor Bice. It also appeared that Kay Bulger, Debby Leonard, Betty Booth, and Evie Schumann were quite at home in chains. My guide then showed me Jimmy Giles and Jon Strong, baking over a fire which Colton Daughaday was stoking. " Hot stuff! " I called out to him, but I ducked, and it missed. Then, to my great surprise, a large basket plunked into a space before us, and we got into it. I don ' t know how we got into the sky, but we did. Up and up we went, at such a terrific speed that I sneezed and saw the world spread out like a map be- low me. After going up steadily for several hours, we reached some pearly gates. We stopped, and I clambered out onto a cloud. When I looked around, Mr. Corkran had disappeared, so I walked up to the pearly gates. Saint Steven Paul unlocked the gates for me. He explained that it was really Peter ' s job, but it was his day off, and he was taking his place. Inside I found Mr. Taylor wandering about dreamily. He told me that he had recently been elected president of the " Angel ' s Society for Looking into the Hard-Times Situation " . I congratulated him, which made him so happy that he smiled all over and recited a formula. Then I saw a sign which invited me to enter the Harvey Huston saloon, so I did. At one end of the saloon, Miss Crilly, Miss Burley, and Miss Stern were sitting strumming their harps, with heavenly looks on their sweet faces. Miss Bartelme waited on the tables and did very well. Upon leaving the saloon I saw a huge newspaper building across the street. I found that it belonged to Roger Ballard, Tom Jones, and Barton Bosworth, who published the flourish- ing newspaper, " Heaven Eyes " , which had as a slogan, " Heaven onlv Knows. " These boys! After that, such strange things happen ed that you wouldn ' t believe me if I told you what they were, and ink costs too much to waste these days. Twenty-four 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Us Sophomores When we come back tuh skule las ' fall, And parked our hats in Dunlap Hall, Tuh us the biggest kick of all Was bein ' Sophomores. We hada fight wit might an ' main A little reputation for tuh gain, An ' then that rep tuh maintain For us Sophomores. The fust thing was a football game That brung tuh the class some well earned fame An told the skule about de name Of us Sophomores. Den along come de Vaudeville And we really handed dem a thrill Cause our acks filled mosta de bill. Boy, Us Sophomores! An ' de dramer claimed us too, dey say, Because George Washington ' s Birthday Was made famous with a play By us Sophmores. De Soph Hop was de bestest dance Since first de skule began to prance, An ' de others didn ' t have a chance Wid us Sophmores. As a class we was a grate success An ' dat was due, we must confess Tuh de brains an ' looks an ' strength, no less Of us Sophmores. Twenty-five 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Twenty-six 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Ogden Hannaford Mary Lyon George Watson Freshmen OFFICERS President Girls ' 1 President Bovs " President THE SANDWICH RAID ' Twas in the month of April, One day that I recall, The Freshmen and the Seniors Once had a little brawl. The Seniors there were waiting To stop the charge, half-hearted The Freshmen rushed upon them And then the battle started. The Freshmen all stampeded Inside the Senior ' s room, Anon they came a charging To spell the Senior ' s doom. A thousand fists were fighting, A thousand missiles flew, A thousand feet were kicking, The uproar grew and grew. The sandwich basket trembled. When first it saw the sight Of many Freshmen charging, Upon it, left and right. The Battle seemed as started. The Brawl was at its best. But in the room came Mr. Lund, I need not tell the rest. Twenty-seven 19 3 2 THE MIRROR OUR SCHOOL YEAR As we look back over the school year, 1931-1932, we, the Freshmen Class, believe that this has been our most enjoyable year. We therefore write the foi- ling summary: September 21 — Blue Monday, and the first day at school. We all went to school with a frown, but enjoyed ourselves thoroughly, meeting new classmates, and greeting old ones. Soon, after the first few days, football started off, and it looked like a successful season. The Ninth grade was divided into two teams, chiefly the Middles and Heavies. The Heavies had two teams which were coached by Mr. Lund and Mr. Taylor. The Middles were coached by our dear friend and room-teacher, Mr. Millett. The girl ' s hockey team also enjoyed a good season, winning quite a few matches. Toward the end of the season the Eighth grade challenged us, only to lose after a good fight, 13-0. Thanksgiving brought us our first exams, and many a person worked during vacation. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas we were bus} ' in the Toy Shop and practicing baseball. The Christmas vacation was a great relief after the terrific mental strain we had been under during the first quarter. We certainly needed a rest. January brought us back to school and we started the basketball season. Some of us were on the Varsity Lightweights, and others on the Minor teams. W T e had some games with Skokie, but these were not very successful. Basketball was cut short by the opera and our play, " As You Like It " . We felt sure that this play was enjoyed by everybody, including ourselves. After the play we enjoyed a week of vacation, which passed all to quickly. The Spring vacation ended and we were back at school to take track, base- ball, and tennis. Our next important project was the Freshman Dance which brought the year to a close in a blaze of glory. We all bid you good luck on your vacation and we hope to see you next fall. (Signed) The Class of ' 36 Twenty-eight 19 3 2 THE MIRROR The Middle School We are never able to withstand the forward march of progress, and the advent of the year IQJI-IQJ2 found a further development in our ever-changing campus. The Seventh and Eighth grades were transferred to Leicester Hall, forming a Middle School with its own Facultv and Student Government. As the year has progressed their organization has steadily improved, and advanced towards further cooperation with the High School and the Lower School, ever growing toward a more perfect unity at North Shore.

" Judd Hurlbut — " Oh, Johnnie will be here, he forgot and left his books at Chandler ' s again. " (Enter Ensley Hooker, with James Sutherland, and a dog-earred excuse.) Mr. White — " Well, let us see what applies to you in the bulletin today. Ah, yes, Heah we ah. T. Nathan and J. Tuthill report to Mr. Anderson immediately. Well James, what is the program you arranged for the ten-minute period. " Jim Sutherland — " You never told me to make any program. " Air. White — " Well, now, who was it I told? " Zeiss — " It was me, Mr. White, but I forgot all about it. " Air. White — " Ah, well, I guess we will have to have some general knowledge questions. How many know the test for seeing whether eleven will go evenly into a numbah. " Bob Wallace — " I think I know! Don ' t you take the number and multiply it by eleven, then lets see, you subtract eleven squared and — oh, gee, I ' m kinda mixed up. " Spike Allen — " Air. White, we ' ve been having an argument about your middle name. Jim Hammond says it is Leopold, and I say that it is Lucas. " Air. White — " Well, surely, that ' s a little puhsonnal. Say does anybody else know the test for eleven? " William Daughaday — " I know, Mr. White. You take and add up the digits of the number you are dividing into and see whether eleven will divide evenly into that. " Marshall Forrest — " No, that is wrong, because — (bell rings loudly). Mr. White — " Away you go. " (Curtain.) Thirty-one 1932 THE MIRROR Thirty-two 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Seventh Grade TEN YEARS FROM NOW Dan — Professor of Science. Hugh — Masculine Charlotte Greenwood.

One morning an English woman, crossing the river into the Indian camp, noticed that the Indians were sawing off the ends of their guns. This was reported, and also the blacksmith said that the Indians had been borrowing his tools. Gladwin, commanding the English, paid no heed to this warning. Soon after, an Ojibway maiden told Gladwin of Pontiac ' s plot — that Pontiac and his warriors were coming to Gladwin to say that they would be peaceful, but when Pontiac would raise the belt of wampum his warriors were to attack the English. Pont iac, not knowning that his plot had been given away, went into the English fort with his warriors. He saw all of Gladwin ' s men in arms and ready to do battle. He asked Gladwin, " Why are your men armed? " Gladwin replied, " It is a custom to drill my men every morning. " Pontiac, seeing that he was betrayed, was very angry. This was the beginning of Pontiac ' s War. Thirty-seven 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Our Castle Fifth Grade APRIL The rain is falling softly, softly. It sings a lullaby combined with love. Greetings to April! Pitter patter, Not a clatter, But some music soft and sweet. The Day ' s dark and dreary. Yet it is cheery For the music is sleepy, And makes you quite dreamy. Such is April. MAY DAY May Day is here — at last! at last! The May Queen is coming in white sheeted dress. The music is starting, the dancers are ready. Bring out the crown to crown the Queen, For she shall rule from this day on. Thirty-eight 19 3 2 THE MIRROR . ' flit Our Thanksgiving Play Fourth Grade OUR FOURTH YEAR We were excited because it was the first day of fourth grade. It was fun. We saw and did new things. We had lots of new privileges. One of them was choosing our own lunch. Another was to have large notebooks, and we had never had them before. " Click! Click! " , go the hinges. " Click! Click! " , we snapped our notebooks just because they made a noise. But Miss Fullerton didn ' t say, " No! " . After a while she said, " Haven ' t you done it long enough? " . From the beginning of school to Thanksgiving, we studied about the Pilgrims. We read two books, and Miss Fullerton gave us some questions. We gave the Thanksgiving play. It was lots of fun making it up. We wrote stories about the Brewster family, and then Miss Fullerton and Miss Radcliffe picked out parts from different people ' s stories. We put them all together and made the play. We gave people their acts, and we practiced in the room. We made scenery in art and shop. Right after Christmas we changed ourselves from Pilgrims to Greek children. We all lived in Athens. We played in the market places, on the playing fields, and on the Acropolis. We had great fun being Athen- ians. Thirty-nine 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Forty 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Herc ' s Birthday Party Third Grade HERC Once there was a fox terrier named Hercules. His mother ' s name was Dolly. They lived alone in the country where Miss Griffin has her cottage. One day there was a big storm and Dolly had some puppies. When Here was two weeks old he fell out of the dog house into the snow. He didn ' t cry. He liked it. He just rolled over in the snow. He was named Hercules, but we call him Here for short. Once there was a strong man named Her- cules. Here was named for him. In February Here had a birthday party. He was one year old. He had his dog friends. We sent invitations to the owners of the dogs. They all could come. The dogs were Snubby, Tiger Tooth, and Teddy. Miss Griffin made a little cak e and had one candle on it. We called for the dogs. Tiger Tooth was a little afraid to come up stairs. We had a little table and four chairs. We held Snubby, Tiger Tooth, and Teddy. Here is used to sitting on chairs. We lit the candle, and divided the cake, and gave each one a quarter. Tiger Tooth was a little timid, and did not eat his cake right away. Snubby was greedy and took Tiger ' s cake and all the crumbs. Then we gave each one a piece of candy. They got down and ran around. Snubby had his leash on, and Teddy thought it was curious. He followed Snubby all around the room. We all sang " Happy Birthday " . The dogs looked at us. After a while Miss Hertzog came, bringing a present and a birthday card with her. e all sat down and read the card, and opened the present. It was a rubber ball. We threw the ball, and all the dogs ran after it. The} ' had much fun and so did we. Forty-one 19 3 2 THE MIRROR This is, Fcrr TDcat-borr] The Second Grade FORT DEARBORN The Second grade went to Fort Dearborn. We saw a block-house made of logs, and a wooden horse that was used for cutting logs. The mess hall was in- teresting. The powder magazine was the only stone building. It had to be stone so it couldn ' t explode. We saw the bunks and a wooden bed with rope springs. It didn ' t look comfortable. The well was very deep. The sides were high. There was a bucket fastened to a wooden handle. When we worked the handle the bucket went up and down. All the people in the fort got water from this well. There was a picket fence around the fort, called the stockade. LITTLE UGLY FACE We made a puppet show. It was the play of Little Ugly Face. The story was about a little Indian girl, something like Cinderella. We made our stage in the shop. We brought it up to our room, painted it, put designs on it. Next we sewed our curtains and decorated them. We painted trees on big pieces of card- board to look like the woods. We made a teepee and a campfire. We made a bush and a lake. We drew our puppets on paper. We pasted them on cardboard and painted them. Then we fastened them on sticks. It was fun playing Little Ugly Face. OUR HALLOWE ' EN PLAY We made up a play for Hallowe ' en about a dream. A little boy and girl lived on a farm. They made a Jack-o-Lantern and set it on a post, then they went to bed. Mr. Jack-o-Lantern walked in. He woke up the children. He took them to Hallowe ' en Land. The kitty went too. They saw witches. They saw ghosts. They met an owl. They went to the moon country. There they took turns holding the moon. Even little kitty had a turn holding the moon. Then they met Jack Frost. Last of all they danced with the elves. Then the little boy and little girl fell out of bed. Mother came running in. It was all a Hallowe ' en dream. Forty-two 19 3 2 THE MIRROR the K. ' hJ ( Q.ae Ti of fHe Ojn t , The King and Queen of Hearts The First Grad OUR VALENTINE PLAY This year the First grade read the play about the " Queen of Hearts " . We looked at all of the pictures and talked a lot about the story to help us get ideas. We made a list of all the characters that we thought we might want. Miss Gilbert came over to help us plan the play. We made a book of pictures that we gave to Miss Gilbert. We played the " Queen of Hearts " many times in all the different ways that we could think of. We talked all about the people who played the parts well and why they did. Mr. Whitby and Mrs. Brcin were very kind and helped us to plan the scenery. We decided that it would be nice to turn our farm house into a castle and change the silo into a tower. We all helped to paint our castle. We used our settee for a throne for the king and queen to sit on. We made many tarts for the queen. We made them all out of red and white paper. We asked everyone in the whole school if they would please go and make a favor for the Valentine Party. We painted posters and signs and put them in the different buildings to remind everyone to make their favors. We all wrote programs and then we voted which program could be read most easily. We took the best one of these, and had all our programs printed over in the office on the mimeograph machine. Then we decorated the covers on the programs and pinned all of them together.

What more can one ask of anv team Jack Anderson The football season of 193 1 was very successful, the team being victorious four times, and defeated once. ' As the season started earlier than usual, practice was called a few weeks before school opened and a number of healthy looking fellows responded to the call. After whipping itself into shape, with the heaviest team in the history of the school, the Purple traveled to Racine to start the season with a win. The game started in a drizzle which later turned to rain, resulting in a muddy field and many fumbles. North Shore first scored after the opening kick-off, and made the point. Then the teams battled on even terms for the remainder of the half. A safety in the third quarter and a touchdown, resulting from one of the numerous fumbles in the last quarter, concluded the scoring and North Shore won, 15 to o. The second game was played in ideal weather against Francis Parker on the home grounds. While scoring in the first quarter of each half for a total of 13 points, North Shore managed to keep her goal line uncrossed for the second time. The Purple met its first defeat at the hands of the old rivals from Milwaukee Country Day. It was a hard fought game and the Shores started off strongly, scoring a touchdown in the first few minutes. Mil- waukee came right back and tied the score. In an exciting second half, the visitors scored another touchdown, and then, with only a few minutes left to play, North Shore fumbled within the opponents 10 yard line. With no chance for further scoring, the Green and Gold were victorious, 13 to 7. In their final home appearance, the Purple met Harvard, and in a closely contested struggle was able to push over a touchdown in the second half and emerge with a 7 to o win. For their last game the team went to Latin to dedicate the new athletic field. The team seemed determined to dedicate the field properly and thoroughly routed Latin, 26 to o. This game climaxed the season as the team finally found itself and showed more sustained power than in any other game of the season. The annual Father and Son Football Dinner, held in the closing days of November, will long be a memorable event in minds of all those who attended and especially will it stand in the memories of the 193 1 season as a most enjoyable and inspiring finale. The team was honored by a very forceful speech by Ralph Horween, in addition to several short addresses by prominent Fathers. As usual an outstanding feature of the evening was the picture presented by Mr. Anderson of the season ' s accomplishments and the curtain was rung down on " Football — 1 93 1 ' " by the well-chosen words of the team ' s captain. Forty-seven 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Forty-eight 1932 THE MIRROR Hockey, 1931 " The hockey this year was characterized by a marked improvement in speed of play and force of attack. " Jessica Nixon The first game was not until quite late in the season and so we had welcome time to organize and practice under the direction of Miss Nixon and Miss Harriet Leonard. For our first games we journeyed to Kenosha where we met Kemper Hall in first and second team conflicts. Both games proved to be fast and close, and North Shore managed to eke out a 2 to I victory in each case. The next games were with Carl Schurz played on the home fields which were, at the time, more like lakes. Because of the size of the rival school North Shore departed from the usual custom of first and second team games, and instead played three class games. The games were marked by long drives, in decided contrast to the dribbling type of play which was featured at Kemper, but they were by no means slow. North Shore ' s efforts did not meet with the success which greeted them in Kenosha, winning but two of the three events. The Juniors and Sophomores were victorious, 3 to I, and 3 to 2, respectively, the Seniors going down in defeat at the short end of a 4 to 3 score. A frigid November day saw North Shore facing the Chicago Latin aggrega- tion on a wind-swept Lincoln Park field. Both the first and second team were handicapped by the severe cold and yet their play was careful and accurate. These virtues were properly rewarded and the Purple players returned to innetka with two victories — 3 to 1 and 3 to o — over their urban rivals. An unusually heavy schedule prevented the annual classic with Roycemore, much to the regret of all concerned. One question will forever remain unsolved in the annals of the school ' s history — that of inter-sex supremacy on the hockey field in ' 31. If a third game had been played who would have won the coveted title, Football team, or Hockey team? In the first encounter one goal apiece was all that either side could gain. The next day the fray was renewed, in an attempt to decide the tie. Once again the rival teams failed to amass more than a single tally each. Even a ten minute extra period could not bring the decisive point. So there it stands, one of Life ' s unanswered questions. The annual hockey Spread attended by those girls on the first and second teams was held in the lunchroom several weeks after the conclusion of the season. The Senior girls supplied a witty toastmistress for the occasion who called on Mr. Smith, Miss Nixon, and the captain for short speeches during the " Spread " which was served in excellent style by the Freshmen girls. The Juniors put on a stunt later in the evening after the festive board had been cleared, which was followed by three or four impromptu speeches by members of the team. As a grand finale the school song echoed and re-echoed thru the lunchroom and brought the hockey season to a happy close. Forty-nine 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Fifty 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Minor Team Football " The success of the Minor Teams this year is due to the excel- lent co-operation of those concerned and of their respective coaches. " Edward Lund Those aspirants of the Upper and Middle Schools not eligible for varsity competition on account of their size, were divided into four minor football squads of assorted weights. The Light-Lightweights, divided into two teams under the able guidance of Air. Gleason had a successful season made so by the equal abilities of the two teams. Neither side being able to overcome the other, both claimed victory. The Lightweights increased steadily in football technique under the direction of Mr. Wilder. They split even in the games with Skokie and consequently many fundamentals of football were drilled into them. Mr. Millett supervised the training of those in the Middleweight division. Several closely contested struggles were held with Skokie. The honors were evenly divided between the two schools, and we cer- tainly hope that this rivalry will continue, as it has so successfully for a number of years. The heaviest team at Skokie being a bit light for our Heavyweights this year, a new series of games between two equally divided teams of this group was inaugerated by Mr. Anderson. This experiment proved quite satisfactory and the football season for these squads was one of hard work and much pleasure. Fifty-one 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Basketball, 1932 THE BOY ' S SEASON " On the whole I thought it was a most successful season. " Les Page The 1932 Basketball Season was inaugurated by a series of three defeats all of which were not regular scheduled games. The season proper started late in January and carried through till the middle of March. After this very shaky start the two divisions began to win some games and the final standing reads: Lights won two, lost four; Heavies won six, lost four. The first two games were played during the Christmas Vacation in which the Heavies lost the opener to Berkshire and then could not hold in check the fast teamwork of the Alumni when they started to get the eld combinations wo:king. The third reverse was administered by a speedy Panther Club team. This was not taken as a depressing defeat but one from which much could be learned. The regular season then started with two victories over New Trier quintet both of them being rather slow but marked with much roughness. However the team showed marked improvement over the previous games in certain depart- ments. The next encounter was with Harvard on whose floor both Heavies and Lights were most effectively stopped. Both games were slow and the Lights lost 1 1-5 . while the Heavies could not score a field goal and lost 21-4. North Shore then traveled to the Latin school to split a double-header. The Lights, much handicapped by their size, were crushed 37-1 1. The Heavies on the other hand were able to defeat their ancient rivals in an exciting tilt, 27-25. Two weeks later the Purple fell before Francis Parker twice, the Lights 49-14, while the Heavies not playing as they did the previous time went down 29-12. The following week however both teams realizing their real power downed Harvard decisively in a return tilt. The Lights playing the most exciting game of the season took two overtimes to win 13-11. The Heavies finding the basket for one thing avenged their former defeat by winning 21-8. North Shore split even with Francis Parker in their return event, the Heavies turning them back 18-14. The Lights lost 30-12 in a hard fought struggle. The last home games were with Latin in which the Lights came out victorious over their taller rivals winning decisively 21-15. The Heavies forgetting to play the type of ball they did in the former tilt were completly downed to the tune of 29-10. In the final encounter with Milwaukee Country Day the Heavies for the first time in three years and the first time on their floor repulsed a last minute rally to win 20-18. An interesting note on this season is the fact that a number of varsity players gave up a great deal of their time to help coach the minor teams and taught them much about fundamentals as well as profiting themselves by the experience. Fifty-two 19 3 2 THE MIRROR 19 3 2 Fifty-three THE MIRROR Basketball, 1932 THE GIRL ' S SEASON " We had a great deal of fine material this year, and the play on the whole was quite good. " Jessica Nixon This year the girls ' basketball team had a very successful season. Both the first and the second team won the three outside games that they play ed. The first game, about the middle of January, was with Carl Schurz and took place in their gymnasium. First and second team games were replaced by class matches, the Sophomores playing first. Due to the fact that two Schurz forwards were twins, there was a great deal of confusion, making it difficult for the guards to fill their positions. The game was exceedingly close until the last lap when North Shore was nosed out by their urban rivals, 29-19. The Seniors then attempted to overcome the opposing Senior class of Schurz, but from the beginning this undertaking seemed doomed to failure because of the height and skill of the opponents ' center forward. The Seniors were crushed by the top-heavy score of 69 to 12. The Juniors then endeavored to save the day, putting up an extremely good fight. Schurz proved invincible and downed the Juniors, 28 to 25. After a good deal of intensive preparation, North Shore met Kemper Hall in the Boys ' Gym on February 13th. The proverbial jinx, however, sat on the Kemper bench and dragged its teammates to an inglorious defeat at the hands of both North Shore ' s first and second aggregations. Neither team had had the advantage of play on such a large floor as the Boy ' s Gym afforded, and both schools were handicapped by the wide-open spaces. In spite of the extreme accuracy of the Kemper forwards, the home team managed to maintain an early lead and come out on the glad end of a 39-27 count, while the second string cap- tured an equally exciting struggle, 27-17. The next game occurred on February 20th, featuring the old rivals, Royce- more. The Boy ' s Gym was the scene of an unusually fast and even conflict which was of the two court variety instead of the more common three line affairs. Final calculations showed that the North Shore first team had won by a 35 to 19 score and that the seconds were victorious in a 34 to 11 wind-up. A dull Latin game wound up the season on March 13th. The first won an easy, if unspectacular, conquest over the city girls, 60 to 12, while the secondary forces ran up a total of 22 points to Latin ' s iS tallies.

" Jack Anderson The call for practice this spring was rather late, due primarily to the tardiness of the Easter Vacation and the intervention of " Iolanthe " . Air. Anderson held morning sessions during the spring recess, and a number of eager aspirants re- sponded to the first call. At the outset the team was handicapped by an unusual dearth of veteran ball players. In fact only three of last year ' s nine remained to form the nucleus of the 1932 aggregation. However, this excellent opportunity for improvement was immediately seized by the team, and a period of rapid development began, to be terminated only by the close of school which rung down the curtain on the baseball season. The first baptism under fire came in the second week of the training period, when North Shore met the New Trier Varsity on the latters diamond. Even when aided and abetted by one of New Trier ' s star pitchers, the Shoremen were unable to stem the victorious Green and Grey attack. After five innings, marked by good fielding on the part of both outfits, and marred by several misplays by the visitors, New Trier emerged on the top side of a 4 to o score. A week later, North Shore encountered an experienced Latin nine on the Chicagoan ' s new West Side Arena. The game ran along smoothly on a neck and neck basis until the sixth frame when a tiring Purple hurler, together with several errors, allowed Latin to score enough tallies to triumph, 13 to I. This contest was far from discouraging, however, for it witnessed many improvements in the style of ball played by the Winnetka club. With the same steady increase in ability and confidence that characterized the debut of the 1932 nine, the team rounded off a successful, if not victorious season, completing a schedule of six games with engagements in Milwaukee and a return bill with Latin. The future of baseball looks very bright indeed in the light of the two past seasons. It will be remembered that the national sport was revived at North Shore as a major activity only three years ago, and the mushroom growth it has undergone since that date gives ample proof that the game has found a real place in the life of the school. All indications point to a rapid rise in popularity which is without doubt well justified. Fifty-six 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Fifty-eight 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Standing — R. Alschuler, Treasurer; D.

Student Government " The student government this year has been characterized by an orderliness and sanity -which in times past seems to have been lacking, and, because of these forces, business in the main has been handled efficiently. " David Corkran During the past year the Upper School government has been organized in accordance with the suggestions and constitution recommended by the Con- stitutional Committee and passed by the assembly last spring. There are two major differences between the government this year, and that of previous years. First, the Seventh and Eighth grades have been excluded from the Upper School assembly and have been given a government of their own. Second, the Presi- dent, Secretary, and Treasurer, of the Executive Committee were elected by the assembly, the four remaining members being elected by the individual grades. Very noticeable improvements have resulted from the above mentioned changes. Many more people have taken an intelligent part in the debates in the assembly and, because the elections have been held twice as often, many more persons have gained experience in holding office. The intelligence shown in voting has been likewise increased. But perhaps the most encouraging sign is the growing interest manifested by the students toward their government. As in all governments, ours has been no better nor no worse than its leaders. This year the student government has not suffered for lack of good leadership. In keeping with the Senior policy of serving as guides rather than rulers in all school affairs, much of the responsibility in the governmental field was allowed to rest on the shoulders of the Junior class, and as a result this class seems especi- ally well equipped to carry on during the year to come. In thinking of the year as a whole, it becomes evident that the government has been run with unusual smoothness and that this activity has reached a higher degree of popularity than has ever before been attained in the history of the school.

The Purple and White " To my mind the best and most continuously interesting Purple and White that the school has ever producedV Perry D. Smith It can be truly said that no school paper stands a chance of succeeding while its editors are under the impression that subscriptions are largely a matter of school spirit. When this board of editors came to a realization of the truth contained in that statement, they determined to attempt to create a paper so good and so filled with interesting articles that everybody would buy it purely on the merit of the material to be found in it and the interest of its features. This change in the paper was brought about by a reorganization of the staff, including the appointments of several new members, having an active interest in the publication of the paper, and a desire to make it both entertaining and educational to read. The passing of the year has seen the attainment of this goal which the editors set for themselves. The Purple and White is changed not only in appearance, having been enlarged and revamped, but also contains considerably more read- able material. It now not only gives a clear, . concise account of contemporary events on the campus, but moreover contains stories and humor written by the students and faculty. By far the most important feature, however, is the editorial comment upon the vital interests of student activities and kindred subjects. These have a far-reaching influence in encouraging and guiding thought and discussion on the part of its readers, and constitute an important factor in school life.

Bollinger This year witnessed the inauguration of a new system of controlling the finan- cial side of the Santa Claus Christmas Toy Shop. The manager assumed a new role — acting in the capacity of general purchasing agent for the entire organi- zation — and for the first time in history this important activity kept safely within the limits of expenditure laid down by the student government in their annual appropriation. In the matter of the division of labor, the Toy Shop departments remained practically the same as in previous years. The greater part of the wood work was done in Mr. Bollinger ' s shop in Dunlap, the Scenery Room was the scene of frenzied activity with paint and brush, while Doll, Book, and Canned Goods departments found suitable locations about the campus. The Toy Shop was formally presented to the school as a whole in the annual message from Santa Claus. Word had been received from headquarters at the North Pole that the Great Toymaker had installed complete television apparatus and accordingly preparations were made on the stage for seeing Santa as well as hearing him. The broadcast which was perfectly received, stressed the great •need caused by current economic conditions, and appealed to the student body and faculty alike to come to the aid of the less fortunate. Santa ' s plea was aug- mented by short talks from all the department heads and produced the desired effect, for as the toys began to pour into the receiving rooms, a stream of ready workers followed in their wake. All work was completed by the date set for the big Christmas Party and when the toys were displayed in the gym at the beginning of the Holidays there did not appear to be that air of sameness about everything which has been the major criticism directed against this organization in past years. This was due in no small degree to the artistic touch of Mr. Millett who very kindly undertook to arrange and dispose of the articles. This distribution was accomplished in much the manner of previous years with the exception that no one was permitted to distribute toys personally, the whole lot going to organized charities, who, it was felt, were in a more advantageous position to determine where the need was most acute. Sixty-one 19 3 2 THE MIRROR Sixty-two 19 3 2 THE MIRROR ' rama " Dramatic activities at North Shore, alt ho numerous and varied, have not followed traditions of former years very closely but interest has been widespread and results very successful. " Margaret Radcliffe Perhaps the most outstanding fact of which one becomes conscious on ex- amining the dramatic calendar for the year is that class plays are conspicuous by their absence. We find that the lower grades did their bit toward upholding the old North Shore tradition, which demands from each class in the school a dramatic production of some sort, but that the higher one ascends on the scholastic scale, the fewer and farther between become the theatrical attempts. In the case of the two upper classes the tragic ends of their plays may be traced to a common root of evil — procrastination — altho it may be said, in defense of guilty parties, that much of the available time was absorbed by the opera and other equally worthy occupations. The first piece presented to the school was the Hallowe ' en play, a Second grade production, which was centered about a Hallowe ' en dream and a mid- night escapade with witches, ghosts, and elves. Thanksgiving supplied the next holiday bringing in its van the Thanksgiving Play by the Fourth grade. That class, with the aid of a few miscellaneous Seniors, dramatized the immortal story of the Pilgrims from the novel point of view of the Pilgrim children. This play will long be a memorable event in the history of Thanksgiving productions. The Christmas Play this year was, as usual, a presentation of the Eighth grade. They developed the Christmas theme from a more modern point of view than had ever before been attempted, and presented a vivid, moving version of the well-known story. An outstanding feature of the play was the staging effects, and the choral work of the entire school did much to make the afternoon the unqualified success it proved to be. A more recent event was the play written and presented in commemoration of Lincoln ' s Birthday by the Third grade. The most noteworthy scene in this portrayal of our martyred president ' s life was that depicting the address at Gettys- burg. It was rendered in a manner which would credit an actor of any age. In the same month the birthday of another president was celebrated by the Sophomore class in a play which centered about Washington ' s acceptance of the highest office in the land, and presented a colorful description of the atmos- phere surrounding Washington at Mount Vernon. The Freshmen were the first to undertake a Shakespearean production, in their spring dramatization of " As You Like It " . The play showed a great deal of careful preparation, the staging was simple and effective, and on the whole well merited the commendation it received. The Vaudeville " The Vaudeville? Why it was so hot that the ' devil ' jumped right out of the middle and left you just ' vaule ' which means practically noth- ing at all. " N. S. Wilder At eight-ten on the evening of the twenty-first of November, the curtain rose on the 193 I Vaudeville. The melodious strains of an orchestra on the deck of a Mississippi steamboat first greeted the ears of the audience. Next appeared a quartet which was unable to harmonize due to a rather boisterous intruder (?) who upset the singers with his humor. The famous cellist, Prof. Ignatz Patter- son, and his assistant followed with a concert which far surpassed anything they had done before. Another highlight on the program was the sparkling manip- Sixty-four 1932 — THE MIRROR ulation of Indian clubs by a faculty member. Later on the reasoning capacity of the audience was put to a severe test by a baffling hair-raising mystery drama. The program was brought to a climax with the faculty ' s song and dance. The Opera ' If all who took part enjoyed it as much as I did, we have every reason to feel satisfied. " ' Ramsay Duff This season the music department chose to present Gilbert and Sullivan ' s operetta, " Iolanthe " , as the major extracurricular activity of the year. As in years past the production of the opera was placed in the hands of the Music, Art, Dramatic, and Manual training classes, and a group of parents graciously took on the responsibility of making and fitting the costumes. Due to the absence of an opera the year before, the work of preparing the production was attacked with an added earnestness and vigor on the part of everyone. Under the able direction of Mr. Duff, the work of training the choruses proceeded with more than the usual rapidity. The solo parts were committed to memory in the course of the first three weeks and when the " Stage Fright " of the principals had worn off, stage-work began in earnest. Under the tutelage of the sisters Bygrave, the chorus of girls and boys were transformed into a band of graceful and dainty fairies and a company of imposing British Nobility. The days immediately preceding the performances were marked by extra rehearsing and increased activity in the Shops and costume departments. Thanks to Mr. Duff ' s excellent leadership and the generous assistance of Miss Bygrave and other members of the faculty, the performances unfolded themselves with un- usual ease and vigor. The production was supported by an Orchestra composed of members of the Little Symphony Orchestra of Chicago. Social Events " I am very happy to recommend to my wide public all the amazing facts herewithin recorded and to certify that to the best of my meager knowl- edge and limited experience the social lights have never flickered with greater brilliance on our fair campus than this year. " Bob Millett The first sparkle on the Social Calendar was furnished by the Seniors in their annual " Come-and-meet-the-folks " Barn Dance. All the world ' s most famous orchestras supplied the music thru a super-sound-system perfected in the Senior Laboratories. As a tonic for that after-the-summer letdown this dance proved to be excellent. The Vaudeville, carefully blended to remove all harsh irritants, offered to the amusement-seekers a brief respite from everyday life and a chance to laugh and dance to their heart ' s content. The Santa Claus Christmas Party, skillfully compounded to please old and voung alike, formally introduced Saint Nick to Society and afforded much mer- riment to all comers. The tag end of winter brought the Valentine Party and the necessity for much heart ' s ease against handsome partners, and foot ' s ease against said part- ner ' s feet. The Queen of Hearts reigned over the assembled multitude with all the stately dignity at the command of her half-dozen years. May Day, bringing Spring to field and foot, arrived at last, ringing down the final curtain on the tragedy of winter. Alice In Wonderland was the guest of honor and the entire school paid homage at her feet. Freshmen and Sophomores furnished hops to add to the general touch, and ' 32 sped down the home-stretch towards June in a burst of merry glory. The final, crowning, blaze of sophisticated elegance flamed high at the Junior Prom, and the brilliant Social season died a hero ' s death.
