(signed) The Class of ' 35 Page 20 35 THE MIRROR Things We Have All Thought About REVENGE If I were boss it would be fine, From school I would at once resign, Or rearrange a system new So French I would not have to do. I ' d change the work all in to play, And invent hour systems, like the N. R. A. In the fire my chemistry, and history, I ' d toss And tell the teachers, " I ' m the boss! " " WILFRED " Three thirty P. M. at the pace of a snail, He enters with his broom, dust pan, and pail. When there is the closing of a window, a scrape of a chaii, Ah, we know that Wilfred must be there. There is no time to whistle, he ' s too tired to sing, Th ere are windows to wash, the lockers need dusting. Chewing gum in the corners, old papers on the floor, Here a sandwich crust, there an apple core. When there is the closing of a window, the scrape of a chair, Ah, we know that Wilfred must be there. LAZINESS If I do my History for today, That will be something out of the way. If I write my English for tomorrow I ' ll save myself a deal of sorrow. If I do my Latin, and French for a change The teachers will think it pleasantly strange. But why do this if it ' s only a sham? It ' s best to be just the way I am. COMMON THINGS We have exams four times a year, We often wonder why. Our teachers we respect, and fear, We often wonder why. Folk-dances we are made to do, We often wonder why. The Sophomores keep a good sized zoo, We ofte n wonder why. It ' s work and toil from day to day, We often wonder why. They say that we are much too gay, We often wonder why. We ' re told that we are full of guile, We often wonder why. Life goes on with a tear and a smile, It ' s your turn to wonder for a while. 1935 Page 21 THE MIRROR 1935 « ■-.

Ham Daughaday THE JUNIOR CLASS Never has there been such a wonderful class In all the years of North Shore ' s past! In throwing erasers, chalk and balls, In shouting and making loud noise in the halls. In breaking down doors, putting hands through glass, None other excels this shy Junior Class! Their duties indeed, full well they fulfill, Running Study Halls and Lunch Lines with greatest of skill. On the fourth floor of Dunlap there ' s ne ' er any noise, For it ' s being watched over by the stern Junior Boys. And when trouble brews in the crowded lunch room, These fierce looking Juniors make peace very soon. Although rough and rugged as they often appear, They ' re chuck full of honesty, never you fear! For whenever they through a window pane trip, They are always delighted to sign a pink slip. This class has its Ping Pongers, Actors and Singers, Golfers, Duck Hunters and eraser slingers, So all in all really we ' re not so bad, But are something quite different from what you ' ve had. Page 24 1935 THE MIRROR Accomplishments our class should be proud of if for no other reason than lack of anything else to boast about: Evy — Her ability to ride horseback, recently. Sally — Her ability to make bad breaks at the wrong time. Flo — Her ability to out-talk anyone in the High School (except Ethel when she gets started.) Margot — Her skilled habit of taking vacations with her mother during exams. Jinny — Her ability to annoy Miss Gilbert, especially in advisory periods. Janet — Her willingness to be roped into any committee. Jeanne — Her loud appreciation of Mr. Smith ' s humor in S. S. Classes. Ethel — Her determination and success in sticking to her ice cream and candy diet. Emmy — Her ability to be terribly polite to strange men on the street car. Annette — Her ability to make weird puns and strange poems to commemorate important occasions. Tody — Her remarkable ability to study and listen to all good radio programs at the same time. Jackie — Her faithfulness in " sticking up " for the poor mistreated teachers at N. S. C. D. S. Dale — Her determination not to become a sponger. Ellen — Her remarkable ability to keep such a neat note-book. Nancy — Her ability to bring horses into any conversation. Gisela — Her ability to attract policemen to her. A HOLIDAY One day a Barber named Jones decided he wanted to go Fishering, so he started out in his car with his wife, Anderson John (son). But going up the Tut-hill, the car began to Creigh-k and squeak. " It ' s Blaine " , he said, " that we need a new car. This must have lost a Weibolt somewhere. " Finally, however, the car got them to the town of Eisendrath, where they decided to Crowder over to the curb and Parker, although it was against the law to stop on Highways. From there they walked across a field where they Met-a- calf and a Bull with Calkins on its feet. Then they crossed the stream where Mr. Jones had decided to fish, by the Blatch-ford, and spread out the picnic lunch, they had brought by some Wells, where they got water. " Here ' s a nice chicken Wing for you, John, " said Mrs. J., but John was too interested in a spider ' s Webbe to answer. After lunch Mr. J. fished, but as he caught nothing, his wife was rather scornful. " How much Daugh-a-day, do you think you ' ll earn this way? " she said Sauer-ly. " Not much, " said Mr. J. " this water is Zeissy. " At length they started home, but the car wouldn ' t Starr-t. However Mr. J. got it going by Tittle-ing around with it. On the way back, they met a Musselman with very long hair. John was scared but Mr. J. said, " Don ' t be scared, he wouldn ' t Harmon-e hair of your head. All he needs is a Wolcott and he would look like any one else. Howard you like to be him and be Stared at? " John didn ' t answer this because they had arrived in their home town, Hurlburt, and their holiday was over. 1935 Pa « c25 THE MIRROR CLASS OFFICERS Tom Eliot President Don Stern Treasurer OUR PET TROUBLES We find we ' re not so popular, — Or maybe it ' s not us! But anyway the High School Has made an awful fuss. " The noises they are horried, " " The smells, " they say, " are worse. " In spite of all our explanations All they do is curse. The feeble squeaks our animals make Certainly can ' t compare With the bellows and battles the boys create That often rend the air. The odors which sometimes fill the halls Originate down in the Lab, But the animal smells are nature ' s fault, And really aren ' t so bad. It ' s quite surprising what we ' ve learned Of heredity, feeding, and such, Page 26. 1935 THE MIRROR And in spite of laughs and teasing We ' ve enjoyed it very much. The opposition we stand is great But we face it with a smile, And hope the good points of our pets Will be realized after while. A — stands for Al, who now goes to dances He bores most of us boys, but the girls he entrances. B — stands for Bud, the great man with a shop, Two bits when he ' s grown he ' ll be swinging a mop. C — stands for Cox, the cyclist bold, Who ' s never at school on account of a cold. D — stands for Don, the bass with a voice, Mr. Duff had to take him — he had no choice. E — stands for Ed Bagley, of big game fame, He shot two racoons which turned out to be tame. F — stands for Freddie, the guy with the ducks, If Joe Penner were here he ' d probably say " Quack. " G — stands for Gillie, that round little top, He sang in the opera but he weren ' t so hot. H — stands for Houghteling, our " New Deal " man, In all the elections he ' s an " also Ran " . J — stands for Jackie, with a face so red, ' Tis said by many he ' s touched in the head. K — stands for someone, we really can ' t tell, He might be in heaven or may be in L — stands for Larry, the child with the line, He thinks he ' s good, but we think he ' s slime. M — stands for Mechem, the big burly brute, He ' s afraid of the girls, but they think he ' s cute. P — stands for Page, our quiet little chap, When he grows up he ' ll get boistrous — perhaps. R — stands for Robert, who does such great harm, But whatever he does he don ' t give a darn. S — stands for Smith, of dudes he ' s the boss At dances he prances about like a hoss. T — stands for Tom, the Mirror Board mug, If this doesn ' t get in we ' ll think he ' s a lug. W — stands for Washburnes, the nuts of our classes, Some say they ' re smart but teachers say " asses. " R-F M — stands for Millet, the last of our clan, He acts like a baby, but looks like a man. At parties and dinners they say he ' s so gay, But " nuts " to him is all we can say. 1935 Page27 THE MIRROR CLASS OFFICERS President Roger Butz Treasurer Larry Howe THE PERILS OF THE SANDWICH LINE (From a Freshman ' s Point of View) It was nearing ten forty-five when at the sound of the bell thousands upon thousands of seething Homo-Sapiens would pour forth from every door, nook and cranny, and with the skill that comes only after days of practice, make a dash for the Senior ' s room where the sandwich line starts. Strange visitors had better take heed from this article and glance at their watches, if they possess such, so that they will know at what time to leave the building rather than die a horrible death at the hands, or should we say the feet, of the thundering Herd. In case you don ' t know what the sandwich line is, it ' s where the Seniors, fortified behind their lock- ers, hand out the daily sandwiches. This sounds to one unknowing in the ways of Seniors, like a delightfully communistic idea, but my de-ah frens! it is far from such Usually a large proportion of the Freshmen, whose turn always comes last, go away with the pangs of hunger gnawing at their vitals, their appetites unappeased, as the Seniors take seconds or even thirds, and shout, " No more. " The sandwich line is literally lousy with graft and corruption. And all the poor Freshmen, who are so mistreated at the extra large hands of the Seniors, the large hands of the Juniors, the middlesized hands of the Sophomores, can say is that, " There ' ll come a day. " Page 28 . 1935 THE MIRROR THE FRESHMAN AND THE TEACHER or (A sad state of affairs) There once was a Freshman who usually dined On a diet of glue and grapefruit rind, And all the day long she ' d gleefully chew On this satisfying mixture of rind and glue. A teacher came hurrying round, and he said, " Tut, tut, it ' s a wonder you ' re not in bed; I ' m sure that hard work will answer the best, For Fve never believed in a complete rest. " The Freshman looked round at her glue and she sighed And, " Teachers ought to know best, " she replied, But much the most answering thing she knew Was that satisfying mixture of rind and glue. The Teacher stood frowning and shaking his head. Then he polished his spectacles slowly, and said, " We ' ll try some equations, they ' ll please you Fm sure. And the declining of nouns is an excellent cure. " So the poor little Freshman sat up all night, And worked till she nearly died at the sight Of a hard equation, or a difficult verb, Or a rather unusual Latin word. Then all day long she ' d be learning things, She knew the dates and could name the kings Of almost every land on earth — But she didn ' t count that of any worth! The Teacher gleefully rubbed his hands And said, " There ' s nobody quite understands These cases as I do. The cure has begun. I pride myself on how well I have done. " But the Freshman sat with her eyes shut tight, And happily smiled as she shut out the sight Of Latin and Math, and instead, her mind Was busily munching on grapefruit rind. P. S. There ' s meant to be a moral to this poem but I can ' t quite find it. !935 Page 29 THE MIRROR Page 30 1935 f ' « III MIDDLE SCHOOL THE MIRROR THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN EIGHTH GRADE Now we will relate to you a tale of North Shore, About an eighth grade class of A.D, 1934: This class had thirty-five boys and girls, and plenty of good ones too, And of course they did some great things, as most eighth graders do. You see, it was this way. Mr. White came to school one morning " ranting and roaring like a true British sailor " that there was nothing ready for the " Mirror " , and that the Middle School seemed to have no intestinal fortitude. After a short lecture that nobody listened to, everybody started to write. Somebody got the brilliant idea that we should write our history in this year ' s " Mirror " for the benefit of all future enquirers. As John Hobart put it, " when we are old and gray, we can take it down off the shelf and see what we were like when we were young. " Let ' s begin with the subject that nobody seems to understand — the student government. What was done in town meetings by the students was sometimes inexplicable. The president — Mr. O ' Brien first term, and afterwards Mr. Howard — got Up and pounded on the table for order. The long and short of it, he would say, was that if we didn ' t make laws the faculty would. But we could enforce them better than the faculty, because there were more of us! Well, we tried different ways to solve our problems, and they all seemed to mix things more. The government was O.K., but the people who were being governed weren ' t satisfied. If somebody suggested we didn ' t scratch our heads at noon, everybody voted for it, and then at noon everybody proceeded to scratch their heads. We all seemed to be for self-government, but it seems that what we really wanted was limited homework and managing the tardiness committee. Finally, when the president had worked over it for a while, the government was put into the students ' Page 32 1935 THE MIRROR hands. They immediately abolished all penalties, and the teachers agreed to go easy on the homework. Things began to go better then. According to President Howard: " On the whole the student government co-operated with the teachers and was able to keep control of the school. " Perhaps you have seen a pink, red or green sheet with an imposing " Middle School News " artistically drawn across the top. The " News " was rounded in January. It had a different color each week. It contained letters from correspondents in distant states, news, articles, book reviews, comments on morning exercises, and stories. Paul Wilder wrote several editorials which became wilder and wilder as they went along. We appointed a staff of seven editors and a sales committee. Although the advertisements were put out only a day before the first issue appeared, almost all the teachers bought subscriptions, and all the copies were sold out. A vote was taken after the first few issues, and the most popular thing in the paper was " Did you know? " which told some interesting things about the school. It seems that North Shore likes, or lacks, publicity. Now there is a society chatter magazine called " The Winnetka Talk, " and every week we were meant to write an article for it. A few people did. The hard part about it was you couldn ' t say just anything. It had to be news, and it had to be nice. The publicity committee, headed by Peggy Boyd, collected and edited the material, and handed it to Mr. White, who edited it some more, and sent it to the " Talk " . At the first of the year, Mr. Thorne-Thomsen, amid a storm of protests that did not reach his innocent ears, decided that we should build cameras. Everyone built them. They varied from four to twelve inches in length. Various people said, " Oh, those goofy things won ' t work! " But they did. Many excellent pictures proved it. In February things around the shop were pretty dull, no one could think what to make. So Mr. Bollinger suggested that a railroad should be strung around the stock room. Soon two railroads appeared in the basement of Dunlap, one in the stock room, another under the north stairs. The one in the stock room wound up around shelves to a switchyard about six feet up. The other one only went up about three feet, but it boasted a more elaborate system, with a suspension bridge. The North Stairs Railway Company even went so far as to sell stock, and sponsor a race for home-made locomotives. Up to Christmas we put on about one morning exercise a week on an average. Then around February we began discussing what kind of a play we wanted to do. So far we had acted " Winnie the Pooh " for the lower school, and the girls acted some parts of " Oliver Twist " in class. The boys had made an operetta out of " The Jackdaw of Rheims " , and Mr. Duff was writing the music for it. At last we planned to give some scenes from " Julius Caesar " in which everybody would take part. The eighth grade did not take all year to figure out problems, but spent much time in frivolities arranged by the teachers, such as folk dancing. This started on St. Valentine ' s Day, and continued the rest of the year. We liked the idea, it helped us to forget our worries, and the teachers looked as if they had fun too. Mr. Spencer proved to be the prize dancer, and could crab walk, skip, or whatever, better than any six of us. The favorite dance was " Jolly is the Miller " , where all the boys could chase their best girls. Lois Greeley was the fleetest of foot, and it took four boys to catch her. 1935 Page 33 THE MIRROR ADVENTURES OF THE CLASS OF 1940 IN 1775 Captain Scrib, Collector of Taxes for North Carolina, was sitting on his front porch, when George Green walked in. " Evening, Captain, you look warm, " he said, with the careful regularity of one who has spent hours learning the speech. The Captain looked up, almost shaking his wig off in the effort. Just then Betty, Scrib ' s daughter, came out, struggling with her dog, which a lot of people thought was too fat. The Captain tried to crack a joke, but it didn ' t pass. Then Benoist, the shipmaster, came in, tall and no doubt uncomfortable in his flopping, sail-like jabot. Following him was the lawyer, Reinhardt, who took one stride up the three steps and another one to his seat. Then there was a heated argument about the Tea Tax. Captain Scrib said that if the Americans couldn ' t pay tuppence a pound on tea after all England had done for her colonies, they were a lowbred pack of scoundrels. But Billy couldn ' t recollect anything England had done for the colonies. Scrib played the part of a balloon to which a pin had been applied. But he ended up the scene with a triumphant speech, accompanied by some grape-juice: " Gentlemen, THE KING! " It was four years later. Everyone was in front of Scrib ' s house. The mob was mad. Graff was mad. He was a man. He wanted that Englishman to shake a leg. But Zanne didn ' t want him to go. " We ' ve got him. Why don ' t we keep him? " she asked. Sally thought this was bad. " We shouldn ' t provoke ' em, " she said. Louise, a woman, was particularly mad. Her boy had been flogged, so she said. And Lang- don Barber said he ' d go back to " the desert of God ' s deserted work " , meaning New England, to fight them stuck-up bull-dozin ' redcoats. Page 34 1935 THE MIRROR 4 When the Captain came out he saluted Reinhardt. Cynny tossed a stray mitten, with terrible aim, at the Captain. Green rushed in full of rage, and Cynny dashed into the crowd as Benoist grabbed Green by the arm. ' ' We can ' t let a dead herring, " he said, meaning the mitten, " interfere with the independence of these colonies! " Clump, clump, clump. Jamie ' s shoes made an awful racket, as usual, as he came in. Jamie was a Scotchman, and was meant to come on in a kilt, but it seemed that Babette ' s skirt was much too short, so he entered in Mrs. Konsberg ' s overcoat. Louise, the servant, had a black silk stocking over her head. It worked. Hardly anyone knew her. She came in. Babette made a feeble attempt to t ake off Jamie ' s tippets. It looked as if she was going to hug him, only shuddered at the thought. Babette was asked to leave. She LEFT. (Husband ' s order.) Jamie, with a bad attempt at fatherly affection, tried to tell George the horrors and shudders of war. He walked around George ' s chair and looked down at him. George looked at the floor, waiting patiently for his speech. Finally he stood up. " What can I do? " fc " Go to England, " answered Jamie. Stacy Oddom was at a club. He was all against REBELS. Helen, in a blue satin suit, was playing cards industriously, and cursed Barbara Fox when she came in (taking snuff) and interrupted a game of " I Doubt It " . They all listened to the Great Man talk. Everyone pounded chairs and shot cap pistols behind stage. Mary came out with a funny looking hat and gazed at the sky. " Oh my! " said Mary. Zanne came out in a very short kilt. She also gazed at the sky. " Oh my! " said Zanne. Just then the dashing young figure of Simpy came in, in a big nightcap, a short nightshirt and football shoes, and holding a long gun in his hand. Somebody said, " The Americans are coming! " and they all took to their houses like grasshoppers. Graff swore that Green would be killed if he went out. George went. Peter came in with his hand on his gun. " Don ' t shoot, " said George, before anybody told him to " stick ' em up. " Peter (a sailor) cautioned George not to try any " flim flams " . Then Eunice hung her head out of a window and got it shot off. There was a large thump behind scenes. Immediately, Mercer, Gordon, and Mosser, with Barber behind, came running in, fairly doing a sailor ' s hornpipe. They had just decided to take George along with them when Captain Fallon came rushing in, claiming he was John Paul Jones. He must have been a friend of George ' s, because they shook hands. " Farewell and adieu to you-u-u Spanish Ladies, " sang the grade behind the scenes, and off they went into 1935- 1935 Page35 THE MIRROR Page 36 . 1935 UP LOWER SCHOOL THE MIRROR A-i Page 38 1935 THE MIRROR SIXTH GRADE This year for the first time the sixth grade gave an Operetta, the title being, " The Cobbler and the Elves. " We began as a group by deciding on the colors of the costumes. We wished to make them as simple as possible for there was little time left. Each person sewed their own costume, and most of the scenery was made over from old scenery by a group of the boys. There were two casts, for Miss Hancock wished to give each person, as nearly as possible, a leading part. The two casts drew lots to see which one would give it for the whole school, and which for the lower school. We practiced for about two weeks. Then came the dress rehearsals. Both casts did very well in them. In the main performance each cast performed very successfully. The play was based on the story of " The Cobbler and the Elves, " which was about a poor cobbler and his wife. On going to bed one night they found they did not have enough leather to finish their last pair of shoes. Then they sang their evening prayer and went to bed. The next morning the Cobbler and his wife find the shoes finished. Then the rich man visits the Cobbler. The rich man buys the shoes and pays well for them. The Cobbler and his wife decide to go to the leather man and buy leather with the money. They come home and plan to stay awake that night and see who helped them the night before. They discover the elves and make some clothes for them. So the play ends. 1935 Page 39 THE MIRROR Page 40 . 1935 THE MIRROR FOURTH GRADE Nature Study Our main nature study was about honey bees. Our book, " Honey Bees and Fairy Dust, " gave us scientific facts. One interesting thing about bees is that they work and build their hive more by instinct than by their brain. They are interesting because each of the three kinds of bees, queen, and worker has something to do with the life of the colony. We studied about insects too. Especially interesting were the Rose Beetle, the Dragon Fly, and the Butterflies. We got information and pictures from many differ- ent books. In order to get an accurate idea of insects ' bodies we took some thin paper and traced several pictures. We heard a book called " The Adventures of Maya the Bee. " We turned it into a spring play for the whole school. We gave two morning exercises about bees and insects. Once we showed how we made the wings, antennae, and heads for our insect costumes. We showed some flowers too. Social Science We studied a lot about different places and people. In the fall we read a book, " Little Pioneers, " which told about the Pilgrims. They were very religious. Now we are studying the Greeks. We read a book, " Old Greek Stories, " which told of the different gods and goddesses and heroes. One day we were loaned a bronze statue of a Grecian Youth and a white plaster cast of Venus de Milo. We had a bronze statue of Chiron the Centaur carrying Cupid on his back. We drew sketches. We turned the statues at different angles or we went to different places and drew from there. 1935 Page 41 THE MIRROR ( V ( : ■ Our vt Jtt F T ues.da " Dec. M-. m THIRD GRADE Our Party In the fall we had a party with our mothers and fathers. Mr. Shaffer printed the invitations and Michel drew the picture. Every mother brought something to eat. After supper we all sang songs. Then we played some games. I liked " Are you there, Micky? " It is a good game. D. B. " Are you there? " is a good game. Two people are blind folded and each has a paper club. A cracker is tied on each forehead and one says, " Are you there, Micky? " And the other one tries to hit the cracker on his head. Then the cracker breaks and you do it again. I like this game. C. S. Our Pets We have two kinds of pets, rats and doves. The rats had seven babies on Christ- mas day. At the Richards house we gave two babies away to a kid in Glencoe. We made the rat cage and the dove cage too. The mother dove has not had babies yet, we don ' t know why. L. K. Penguins Seven little penguins sitting in a row, On a white iceberg that looked like snow. Down went the first one, Then all the rest followed. They saw a shiny black thing floating on the blue, One said, " If you jump I will too. " C. H.

We planted Asters, Petunias and Snap Dragons. We are going to sell the flowers when they grow up. The Story of Dick Once there was a poor boy. He was lost and the earth was new. He lived in a cave. He was seven years old. He had no Mother or Father. He was afraid of the Sabre Tooth Tiger. Story of Japan Japan is a small country. Japanese people eat lots of rice and fish and drink lots of tea. Japanese eat with chopsticks. They sleep on the floor. They like bright colors. They wear Kimonas with sashes. Silk comes from Japan. The silk comes from the silk worm. Silk worms eat Mulberry leaves. Switzerland Stories Switzerland is a country. Switzerland people dress in pretty clothes embroidered with bright colored yarns. The Switzerland people make cheese and also carvings. They make chocolate. Swiss Sports Swiss people like to wrestle, ski, skate, do mountain climbing and tobogganing. Wool Wool comes from sheep. The people shear the wool from the sheep. Then they wash the sheep ' s wool. Then they card the wool. Carding means combing. The Naughty Dog Once upon a time there was a naughty dog and he was always going into his master ' s flowers, and he got a spanking. One day he was very very naughty and he ran away and he got into another person ' s flowers and a person saw him. The dog was very scared. He wanted to run away but a big hand caught him and gave him a good spanking and so he never went into another person ' s flowers again. 1935 _ Page 43 THE MIRROR FIRST GRADE WtMhT -ho Th?- 6n ' ck | Qtory in Nehv ew Tbi ' S (S the hcicKmery ' n thf brick faty- nrr,,,,, Ming Tbt brkkvT TcT ej , •to j J Page 44 1935 THE MIRROR tn KINDERGARTEN Sled Making We went to Mr. Bollinger ' s shop. We wanted to make sleds. With the electric saw, we watched Mr. Bollinger rip pieces of wood. It sounded like an airplane. He sawed this long piece into pieces 22 " long. We each took two for runners. W e made points on each end with the tri-square. We sawed off the corners. We sand- papered them very smooth. We drilled holes in each of the runners for the dowel rod. We each had a piece of wood 13 " x 11 " for the seat. We sandpapered the seats and nailed them onto the runners. Then we nailed in two braces. We sawed a piece of dowel rod and put it in the holes we drilled for the foot rest. Mr. Anderson and Mr. Bollinger put the iron runners on for us. We slid down the hillslide many tim s and had lots of fun. We shared our sleds with the other grades.

Although there were heavy losses in the line up, there were still several regulars left on the squad. As usual the spirit on the squad was excellent, and after three weeks of Doc ' s hardening drills they played their first game against Evanston High School ' s Fresh- Soph team. North Shore won 19 to 7- However, the team received several injuries which were a drawback throughout the season. The following Friday North Shore met Francis Parker. After a hard game North Shore won 6 to 0. They scored in the first part of the game and managed to hold their lead of 6 points by excellent defensive play. A week later North Shore played with Harvard on their field. It was very windy, making kicking and passing extremely difficult. During the first half North Shore failed to click and scored only one touchdown, but during the second half they played far better football and finally won 34 to 0. All next week the team trained for the Milwaukee game, which was played on Milwaukee Country Day School ' s field. It poured on the day of the game, and the wet field made it difficult to get a good foothold. In the first quarter Milwaukee scored twice, but North Shore came back in the second quarter and scored by a long pass. Milwaukee got one more touchdown in the third quarter, and the game ended with a score of 19 to 6 in Milwaukee ' s favor. The following Saturday North Shore played Latin on the home field. The day was perfect. The field was hard and dry. The game started with a drive of off tackle runs by Latin which netted them a touchdown. They failed to make the extra point but succeeded in holding their lead until the end of the game. Once, just before the end of the first half, North Shore threatened the Latin goal line but the rally was ended by the gun. During the next half Latin scored two more touch- downs. Towards the end of the game North Shore managed to pull itself together and the team scored one touchdown. The final score was 20 to 6 in Latin ' s favor. The last game of the season was with Niles Center at their field. It was a hard fought game with both sides playing good football. Near the end of the first half North Shore scored a touchdown but did not make the extra point. During the next half Niles Center made a touchdown, but, fortunately for North Shore, they also failed to make the extra point. The rest of the game consisted of hard fought rallies by both sides trying for the winning touchdown. But no scoring came from either side. The game ended with the final score of 6 to 6. The other squads in football were divided into four sections: Bantoms, Light- weights, Middleweights, and Heavies, who were coached by Messers, Taylor, Glea- son, Thomas, and Thorne Thompson. All of the teams played outside games with Skokie and came through very well. At the end of each football season it has become a school tradition to have a dinner sponsored by the fathers of the boys on the squad. Many Alumni, parents and faculty were there this year with the squad. After dinner contributions were made by the captains and their fathers. Mr. Smith gave a good talk, and made all of the introductions. Mr. Anderson gave his customary excellent analysis of football. And Major John L. Griffith, a commissioner of the Big Ten Conference Board, gave an excellent talk on, " What football has in store for the youth of today. " The evening was closed with a hearty rendition of the School song. Page 50 1935 THE MIRROR The Hockey Season of 1934 The hockey season this year was not very successful from the point of scores, but we all enjoyed it immensely. The games were played with good spirit, and we think our opponents had as good a time as we did. Early in October we played our first game with the Winnetka Women ' s team. We were beaten 1 to 0. Both teams played well for so early in the season, but we did not have that final push needed to rush the goal. The next game was with Roycemore. Two games were played. The first team tied 1 all, and the second team won 2 to 1. We had another game scheduled with Roycemore, which we had to cancel because of bad weather. The following Saturday we played Chicago Latin. The first team was beaten 1 to 0. The second team evened the score by beating them 1 to 0. Two weeks later we played Latin again. We were ahead at the half, but finished tied 1 to 1. The sec- ond team tied also. The last game was with Faulkner, whom we had not played for years. We were glad to renew our friendship with them. They were handicapped by not having played as much as we had. There was only one game, in which we defeated them 4 to 0. All these games were played on our field except the game with the Women ' s team. There were more games scheduled with them, but they had to be canceled for various reasons. After each game there were refreshments in the lunchroom served, with the aid of Miss Musson, by some of the girls and their mothers. The annual game between the boys and girls did not come off because of rain. We were very sorry to lose Miss Bygrave half way through the season, when she went east to be married. However, the school was most fortunate in getting Miss Frazier to fill her place. She kept up the spirit of the girls as if she had been there for a long time, and there was no break in the feeling and interest of the teams. The season closed with the annual hockey spread, which was a great success. The spread was limited to the members of the squad and their mothers. We were competently served by those Freshmen who were interested in hockey. The outlook for next year ' s squad is very hopeful, and the passing Seniors wish them luck. 1935 Page 51 THE MIRROR Page 52 1935 THE MIRROR - 1935 Page 53 THE MIRROR Page 54 1935 THE MIRROR Girls 1935 Basketball Season Since it was thought preferable to have more competition within the school and fewer outside games, the only schools played this year were Chicago Latin and Roycemore. The first game was at Roycemore, and because the teams were well matched, was very tense. The First Team game ended in a tie score, the Second Team game ended in a victory for North Shore. The second game was with the Latin School. Since Latin had a shortage of players, only one game, instead of two, was played. Here again North Shore came out on the long end of the score. The rest of the season was taken up with an inter-class tournament. This is a new plan, by which each class plays the other three classes with two teams. The Juniors were the winners of this stupendous tournament. To finish up were two exciting games, full of melodrama: The Faculty versus the Girls ' varsity, and the Boys ' varsity versus the Girls ' varsity. The game with the boys proved to be a veritable slaughter of the innocents for the boys seemed to have a highly spontaneous and decidedly elastic set of rules which fitted well on any and every occasion. The following day the Faculty having seen the young mens ' success thought to try their hand, and challenged the Girls ' varsity to a game. The Faculty, in spite of resembling a herd of kangaroos, played with the confidence so typical of the adult competing with youth, and their rules like those of the boys , were original to say the least. The Faculty won. This season was entirely successful, including the new inter-class tournament which ought to prove even more interesting next year.

In comparison with last year ' s showing it ranked much higher. The squad had a competent captain in Joe dePeyster, and under the fine coaching of Mr. Page made steady progress through- out the season. Hamilton Daughaday is the captain-elect for the purple cagers of the ' 35- ' 36 season. Doc Anderson had a large squad consisting of eighth and ninth grade boys. This squad played a game every Saturday with a team from Evanston High School made up of freshman boys. Some excellent material has developed from his squad. Mr. Page coached the small teams. They played several games with Skokie with better than fair results. In a few years these stars may play on the Varsity and bring it to a success far beyond our greatest hopes. 1935 Page 55 THE MIRROR Lightweights Junior Varsity Basketball Page 56 1935 THE MIRRO R Baseball Because the Mirror goes to press before the Baseball season gets under way, we can only give a brief hope and prophesy. Every year of course, Soft Ball is played during the entire spring, but this type of play is entirely intraschoolastic, no games being played against outside teams. Last season so few boys came out for Hard Ball that a league was impossible, so we played two games with Latin and two with Evanston. This year the team has new uniforms, and we are once more renewing the games with Milwaukee. All in all there will be at least six games, two apiece with Latin, Milwaukee and Evanston. As for our prospects for this season, just about anything can happen. We have practically the same team as last year, and if Lady Luck is with us we have as good a chance as the other teams. Wrestling Wrestling has been a winter sport in the school for a number of years. In the last two or three years, because of the lack of faculty wrestling coaches, experienced students have acted as coaches for the limb twisters. This year the group had the able guidance of Bill Daughaday. There were a good number of fellows coming up for wrestling every afternoon ranging from the flyweights to the great big heavy- weights. The group wrestled among themselves, being paired off as evenly as pos- sible for the daily matches. No matches have been scheduled with other wrestling teams although this year an attempt at this was made, and next year the wrestling team will probably have some outside matches. The training was quite rigorous and all those who took wrestling gained both in knowledge of this sport and in physical development. The wrestling group hopes that in the future these teams will grow and eventually it will become a regular and well directed inter-scholastic sport. Parry in Septime An ancestral instinct has suddenly come to the fore somewhere in the school, and where, we ' re not sure, but we think it is in the Sophomore Class. During the past it has been the custom of us burly fellows to blow off energy and reek our vengeance in arguments with our fellow class men, by throwing erasers, books, chairs and clothes about the room and halls during lunch periods. Then along came Tiger Thomas, with his iron claws, and put a stop to all such quarrels within the building. Seeing that it was winter and the ground was hard, not as hard as the floor, but rougher; and that there were no chairs, hats, gloves, books, and erasers lying around outside, we had to find some other way of effectively discombobulating our fellow men who persisted in uprising against the omnipotents. So come fencing with its parries, lunges, and engagements intierce. But somehow or other, strange to say, this sport was discouraged by one was known as " P.D. " However, if we were to take a peep behind scenes, we might see something different. For whereas before, this sport was to be seen at various points about the campus, now we find the most diligent of these fencers closeted with the world book in F open before them and swords in hand, so we think, and the authors hope, that within the next few months something may show up in Morning Ex. I935 Page 57 THE MIRROR Page 58 1935 ACTIVITIES THE MIRROR The Purple and White " The Purple and White " began this year as an entirely inexperienced organiza- tion. Consequently it rode the bumps of mistakes which were bound to follow. At first an attempt was made to imitate the style of Tom Jones who had been the guiding spirit of the paper for several years, but they only succeeded in getting tangled up in a snarl like a two year old with a fish line. The whole situation came to a head with the Christmas issue. After Christmas the " Purp " decided on a complete re- organization. They departed from the precedent of not having a managing editor and elected Hilton Scribner to this post, mainly for the purpose of placing respon- sibility in a tangible form. After some discussion with Mr. Corkran they decided to broaden the scope of the " Purp " by adding assistant editors from the Freshman and Sopohmore classes. This was done partly in the hope of developing and finding talent, but mainly to get their cooperation in the writing of the material. The next issue was an improvement in composition even though the old bug-a- boo of typographical errors refused to be downed. As for the rest of the year, they hope to continue upward on the same plain. Many people thought that the Middle School News was going to hurt the " Purp, " but it did the best thing which could have been done by providing interest. It is to be devoutly hoped that a Jones will develop from the organization who, when he comes up to the high school, will be on the board. As yet the " Purp " has not included the alumni because they have shown no interest in the matter. However, in the course of time they may get organized to the extent of joining the school. The real value in " The Purple and White " lies in the experience gained by those who work on it. Page 60 1935 THE MIRROR The Student Government We should have learned many things from this year ' s activities in the Student Government. We should have learned that without a sense of responsibility for the Government on the part of each one of us, there can be no efficient organization. We should have learned that an efficient Student Government cannot exist unless it holds the respect of the Student body, and unless a real interest is taken in it. While this lack of a feeling of responsibility for the Student Government did not originate this year, we have made little serious effort and no progress in combating it. Nor can we say that the government is in a better condition than when we took it over at the beginning of the year. It is true that there have been no outstanding leaders this year, but this fact seems to make it more evident that the Student body is not, and perhaps never has been, sufficiently interested to manage its own affairs efficiently. Although, in general, the committees have functioned with perhaps even more than their usual degree of inefficiency, the Student body has called for no investiga- tions nor reorganizations. In its present state it is useless for the student Govern- ment to pass even anything as innocuous as a resolution. It does not command enough respect. There has been no legislation worthy of mention put into effect up to the time of this writing, and it is becoming less and less evident that there is any real need for an Upper School Assembly. At any rate it is clear that since there is such aft assembly a complete reorganization is needed. At present there is a minimum of 1935 Page 61 THE MIRROR cooperation between the students and faculty towards a community government. Town Meetings are held without even a fair degree of efficiency, and interest in the whole matter is at a low ebb. This is a rather gloomy picture of conditions, but whoever undertakes the task of rebuilding the Student Government, for it certainly seems to need rebuilding, will have to face these problems. Orchestra This season ' s orchestra is the best we have had for several years, and as it becomes larger and more efficient, it is able to appear more frequently, and take a more promi- nent part in school functions. The Orchestra accompanied the singing of, " For all the Saints " , at the Armistice Day Exercise, and appeared at two other morning exercises before launching into the most difficult undertaking of the year, the play- ing of " Princess Ida. " As usual there was the difficulty of reading from well nigh illegible manuscripts, further disfigured by many insertions, corrections, and erasures. However, with the expert assistance of Mr. Swigart, the able cooperation of several parents and of teachers associated with the Music Department, and with much strenuous rehearsing, an orchestra of seventeen was able to give a most creditable performance. This performance was notable for its precision, steadiness of rhythm, gradations of volume from the very soft accompaniment of solos to full strength with the chorus, and for a gratifying absence of strange squeaks and other un- Sullivan like noises. Before the season is ended, we hope to play part at least of Beethoven ' s First Symphony, and will also take part in the Commencement ceremony, when as in the last two years, the Orchestra will play the Processional and Recessional and will accompany the chorus. The inexorable process of graduation will remove one or two of our most gifted and experienced players, but t he increasing interest of Middle School students in Orchestral instruments, and the ability of many of our present members, indicates that the Orchestra will continue to grow in size and efficiency, and will take an in- creasingly active part in the life of the school. The Christmas Toy Shop The Christmas Toy Shop of 1934 was a great success. We produced more for Santa Claus at the annual Christmas Party than ever before. There was such a quantity of toys, books, clothes, dolls and canned goods that there wasn ' t enough room in the gym to hold them all and squeeze in Santa Claus and his entertainers to boot. Good cheer and happiness were brought to many families through the conscientious work of the students, parents and faculty. Everything that had any possibility of being repaired was brought into our distributing department. There they were delivered to any one of the following: — the Doll, Paint, Old Clothes, Book, Mechanical, Woodwork, and Game Depart- ments, depending on what it was or what repairs it needed. All ideas for making new toys, games or clothes were gathered together and the most economical and practical ones were selected and used. Many things were made such as lead soldiers, scrapbooks, doll-beds and mattresses, and toy carts, etc. A bulletin was posted so that the students could easily find where to go and who to see to do the work they were most skilled and interested in. The attendance was high, and plenty of material was ready to be worked on at all times. Page 62 193 5 THE MIRROR The work of the parents added greatly to the amount of finished products. There were two nights in which the parents came, — one the parents of the juniors and seniors, and the other the parents of the freshmen and sophomores. Everyone brought a supper, and soup and milk were served in the lunch room. Seventy-five dollars was appropriated from the stud entgovernment fund to spend on material for the Toy Shop. An official buyer was appointed by the manager to get everything that was necessary and no money was spent by anyone else. The small amount of money that was left over was used to buy Christmas trees and candy. A History of the Upper School Store, 193 4- 1935 . In an unforgetable advisory period in the Freshman Boy ' s room, the question was brought before the assembled multitude of Homo Sapiens whether or not to take over the running of the Upper School Store. The Sophomores assured us that they would be only too glad to continue running it themselves, and even hinted that we might make a mess of the job. But being patriotic, and possibly not wanting to admit that we were as dumb as considered by the Sophomores, we voted to run the store ourselves. A President, Treasurer, Purchasing Manager, and Bookkeeper were elected after some delay, because nobody wanted to take the job of Bookkeeper. We decided to issue one hundred shares of stock at fifty-cents a share, the dividends for which were to come from the discount on the- purchases given us by Mrs. Page. In order that no one might have a controlling interest in the store, we set the limit for the amount of shares that one person could hold at five. We also decided that, as we, the Freshman Boys, owned and operated the store through our own hard work, and not the whole high school, we should get first whack at the stock. The stock was so popular that we not only got the first whack but also the last. What very few shares were left were instantly gobbled up by Mr. Thomas. Although we did not make it a rule, anybody who owned stock in the store and didn ' t clerk, was considered a liability rather than an asset, because he sat back and watched the money roll in without doing his part to make it roll in. At first there was some conjestion in the office during store time. The word got around that it was fun to clerk, so boys with one or two shares and no interest in the store decided to try it. The result was that the clerks, being rather inexperi- enced, became angry when people came in and, after wasting much time hemming and hawing and taking up much room, decided to get one pencil eraser top at one cent each. (Who can blame them, poor souls!) From then on, only boys who really were interested were allowed to clerk, and the noise was somewhat subdued. Due to a slight mixup in the bookkeeping department, no dividends were " Dished out " until the middle of February. If you happened to be passing the Fresh- man Boy ' s room on the advisory period of Monday, February 18th, you would have heard the silvery tinkle of much money being handled. Dividends were at last being " dished out. " The sum decided on was fifteen cents a share, which meant that boys with five shares would get the fabulous amount- of seventy-five cents. Some people were dissatisfied with this because if it had not been for the ineffi- cient clerking the dividends would have been twenty cents. But most people over- looked this fact in their joy at having real pocket money again. The interest in the store was boosted and it lived happily ever after. • 1935 Page 63 THE MIRROR Page £4 1935 • ■■-■■■ m. DRAMATICS THE MIRROR Page 66 , 1935 THE MIRROR Princess Ida This year the high school chorus presented as its annual dramatic work Gilbert and Sullivan ' s comic opera, " The Princess Ida " or " The Castle Adamant " . Many were the groans and wails of the -terror stricken leads. Hard put was Miss Frazier to make lithesome court ladies and dashing courtiers out of buxom hockey players and brawny football stars. Frightful were the expressions on Mr. Duff ' s face. But in spite of these not unusual signs of pessimism, the 1935 Opera went off with much success. The scenery was very effective, the music catchy, and the choruses quite lovely. The costumes were truly superb. Many a feminine vanity was tickled by three becoming sets of costumes — one for each act. The boys, too, turned out to be quite dashing courtiers, although some were a trifle nonplussed at having to wear tights. We certainly owe a vote of thanks and gratitude to the mothers for their untiring work on those lovely costumes. The dress rehearsal was held Wednesday, and was " lousy " . But as the saying goes, a bad dress rehearsal promises a good performance and the performances were certainly excellent. There were few mishaps, and, surprisingly enough, none occurred in the fight scene of the third act. The Friday night cast got a scare when Princess Ida hurt herself falling into the so called river. It was nothing serious, however, and the opera went on. But the next night the Princess had our headmaster ' s mattress to land on, which was certainly more comfortable than the tumbling mats used in the first performance. Everybody enjoyed the opera, both working in or on it, and seeing it. And to end the event with a " bang, " a party was given for the High School at Community House by Mr. and Mrs. Dammann, Hannaford, and Scribner. The Christmas Play The Christmas Play was given this year, as usual, by the Ninth Grade. It was somewhat of an experiment in that the members of the class did a great deal of the planning for it, the costumes and stage effects being worked out by the students under the guidance of some of the faculty and parents. This was the first time that any of the Ninth Grade were on the stage crew, and they certainly had a swell time. The play was a translation of a thirteenth century German nativity play made up of a great many short scenes. It was unique in that it was con tinuous without any intermissions, the change in scenes being done by the means of the lighting and border curtains. For this reason it was the hardest play to stage that has ever been given at school, as changing scenes by means of " blackouts " meant perfect coopera- tion between the actors, the music, and the stage crew. The stage crew is certainly to be complimented on the smoothness with which it was pulled off. The experi- ment of letting the freshmen actually manage the play with the help of the faculty and coaching of the faculty proved very successful. There was a good deal of music in the play furnished by a special high school chorus and a few members of the orchestra. The music was used very effectively during the " black outs " . One of the Santa Maria ' s was written by our distinguished music teacher, Mr. Ramsay Duff. The Christmas Play, like the Opera, was an ex- ample of what good cooperation between the faculty, parents, and students can accomplish. 1935 Page 67 THE MIRROR The Senior Play The climax of the plays given this winter came on March 1st and 2nd when the senior class presented Barrie ' s " Dear Brutus " . The auditorium was well filled both nights, and the audience went away feeling that the seniors had given them some- thing worth thinking about. During the Christmas holidays the class chose " Dear Brutus " . As the play progressed it began to live, and new talent developed, but the dress rehearsal was so bad that the discouragement of the class was intense. However, the assurance that a terrible dress rehearsal means a good performance cheered them, while the stage manager lightened the gloom by his natural talent for comedy. As the situation on the stage grew tenser, he would appear at the back of the stage, mount a perilous ladder and commence hammering, constantly making the most ridiculous faces. He was certainly an asset, and the play could not have done without him. The seniors chose " Dear Brutus " because, through it, Barrie presents a question that many ask, — If you were given a second chance, would you be better off? Barrie says, " no " . Shakespeare said: " The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves that we are underlings " . The two casts gave slightly different interpreta- tions, but equally good. The play was a great success and the seniors have a right to be proud of it. The cast wishes to thank Mr. Smith, Miss Radcliffe and Mr. Corkran for their generosity in giving so freely of their time to direct the play. Their help was essen- tial. Also a vote of thanks to Mr. Bollinger and the Sophomore boys, who worked hard on the scenery and made up the stage crew. Page 68 . 1935 THE MIRROR The Junior Play On Saturday night, February ninth, the Junior Class presented two plays, " Riders to the Sea " by John Millington Synge and, " The Man who Married a Dumb Wife " by Alphonse Daudet. These plays were selected because they offered a marked contrast. " Riders to the Sea " is a modern tragedy of the Aron Islands which are off the West Coast of Ireland. It centers about an old woman who has already lost her husband and six sons at sea, and is waiting for news of her seventh son who has suffered the same fate. " The Man who Married a Dumb Wife " is a comedy centering about an eighteenth century judge who marries a dumb wife, has her speech restored, and finds it so harsh and continuous that he undergoes an operation to make himself deaf. When his wife discovers this she is so enraged that she goes mad, biting her husband. He in turns bites the doctor and so on until they are all mad. The plays were started in the Drama Club but the rest of the class joined in to produce them. In spite of the fact that there was a dance at Indian Hill on the night of the play there was a good attendance and the proceeds were used for the Junior Prom. The Vaudeville of 1934 Being the first dramatic attempt of the school year involving the high school, the Vaudeville has acquired through the years the reputation of a mediocre produc- tion. Outside of the usual number of enthusiastic but blind parents, the audience has largely consisted of those who couldn ' t find anything better to do to pass the time preceding the customary Sophomore dance which follows. However, the school received a jolt this year on discovering the Vaudeville to be a product on to which 1935 Pa c 69 THE MIRROR a string of complimentary superlatives might be tacked. True to the good old N. S. C. D. S. custom, nothing was done in preparation until the last minute, and per ' usual the matinee dress rehearsal was nothing less than havoc plus a few chaoses. However, the evening performance ran off without a hitch and ended, setting a new mark in Vaudeville history. Among the acrobatic acts were feats of both skill and daring — the tight rope for instance, one slip meaning death for our acrobat, walking on wire strung to a high E. Then there were the spheroidist ' s indescribable feats of skill atop a globe, and finally, to top off the show, a one hundred foot dive from the stage bridge into a minute tank of water. A Vaudeville, of course, calls for musical acts, and on account of the lack of the makings of a jazz orchestra the musical part of the program was largely vocal. But several super-good choruses and soloists put the vocal chords through a work- out to the great enjoyment of the audience. Several dramatic offerings along with the faculties ' exhibition on the correct etiquette and technique of raising the flag, and an excellent exhibition of how the Indian Clubs are twirled all helped to round off the show. All in all, to sum it up, the 1934 Vaudeville was the best performance of its kind the school has ever come up against. The Social Season The Senior Dance, the first to be given each year, started the social season off with a bang. The Girl ' s Gym was decorated with a canopy of purple and white streamers. The regular refreshments consisting of punch and cookies were served. This dance is given each year in honor of the Freshmen, welcoming them to the High School. According to custom the Seniors escorted the Freshmen to the dance. The Freshmen were well initiated and everyone retired to their homes weary but contented. After the Vaudeville the Sophomores gave their dance, which was a brilliant affair. The Girl ' s Gym looked like a veritable corner of Hollywood, with the faces of celebrated cinima artists wherever one turned. Dainty sandwiches and cakes were served in great style. The Sophomore, Junior, Senior Assemblies were held at the Women ' s Club again this year. These Assemblies were organized and run by a committee of pupils in collaboration with a group of the parents who very kindly acted as chaperons. The Christmas Dance was a tea dance and the one in February a leap year dance, with the girls taking the boys. These dances were well attended, and on the whole a great success, and everyone was sorry to see the last of them. There seemed to be some doubt in the minds of the Freshmen as to whether they would or wouldn ' t give a dance, but they have finally acquiesced and from all accounts it should be a grand success.
