CLASS PROPHECY It was on a hot spring day when Mr. Corkran was discoursing on labor problems that I suddenly heard a deafening roar and crash, and the next minute I found myself standing on a busy metropolitan corner! No- ticing a newspaper stand nearby, I dazedly grabbed a paper and found to my amaze- ment the date was 1949. I tremblingly turned the pages and came upon large headlines, announcing: " Eliot ' s Newest Book Baffles Nation. " Further on, it stated, " Johan Eliot, noted professor of Boopers Institute, has done remarkably well in his latest work, 7s Grav- ity Here to Stay? ' Prof. Eliot maintains, ' If people wouldn ' t bother about gravity, grav- ity wouldn ' t bother about them. ' " " This must be 1949, " I sighed, and con- tinuing down the street I spotted a large building labeled " Dance Palace. " The place advertised " Spankie Macfarland and Her Troup of Dazzling Dynamos — Positively Last Week. " Hoping that Spankie might be prac- ticing, I rushed to the stage door. There she was, with her hair a brilliant platinum, and with a charm bracelet composed of fourteen fraternity pins jangling on her wrist. " Hi! You ' re just in time to hear the girls rehearse, " Spanky greeted me. " Is that noise an orchestra? " I queried. " Sure, " she answered. " Lydia still pounds the drums, like in the good old days, and she ' s one of our big attractions, too. Janet- er- plays the clarinet, and swings by her teeth on a rope between acts. Marion sings now, " she added. " The Bazooka got too many complaints, but they call her the Helen Morgan of ' 49, these days. " " Say, why aren ' t Jean and Eleanore Zeiss here? " I questioned. Well, " Spankie said, combing her hair vigorously, " Zeissie, as you know, always had western tendencies. She finally married a bronco buster, and when they ' re not break- ing in horses, they ' re raising the twins to be cattle rustlers. " " How cute, " I sighed reminiscently. " What about Jean? " " Shh — , " Spankie whispered furtively. " She ' s an international spy. Right now she ' s in Albania posing as Countess Vonderplotz. " " What, " I cried. " Where ' s her husband? " " If you mean the fourth one, she left him, " I was informed. " The fifth one was the nicest, " Spank added generously. " Talk about muscles! " " Yes, yes, " I interrupted. " But tell me, have you heard from Peggy Boyd? " Spankie sighed. " When she got hitched, we lost one of the best shaggers in the troop. I gasped " You mean she married what ' s — his — name? " " Yep, " she answered, " she did. " Lack of time forced me to leave the Mac- farland troupe, and as I approached the exit, I noticed Mac McCaleb sitting on a soap box. He wore a pink turtle-necked sweater, and furiously puffed a black cigar. " Mac ' s our bouncer, " Spankie explained. " Cute, isn ' t he? It makes us girls feel so safe to have him around! " I gulped and rushed outside. Further on, I was stopped by a familiar name on a clothing store: " Howard ' s Hand- some Haberdashery. " John, himself, was giving a little man a salestalk in the door- way, and I strained my ears in his direction. " My dear chap, " John explained, snap- ping his bow tie. " No one is wearing white shirts; it ' s not done. We have a stunning flowered shirt ensemble with a chartreuse background, and if worn with our imported violet socks — " The little man shuddered and ran off muttering; John flicked one padded shoulder and entered his store. Passing a record shop, I observed a minor riot taking place. A policeman was battling with his victim, and I recognized them as Dick Hart and Pete Kuh. Pete was trying to escape with a record, while Dick, dapper in a policeman ' s uniform, attempted to hand- cuff him. " Please, just one more record, " sobbed Peter. " I ' ve got 99,999, and this one would put me on a round-numbered basis. C ' mon, Dick — for old times sake! " " No! panted Dick. " I haven ' t used my shiney new handcuffs for ages. " I exited, realizing how fickle was friend- ship. Around the corner stood a flagpole at least sixty feet high, with a melancholy fig- ure perched on top. " Heavens, who ' s that? " I questioned an onlooker. Someone named McCluskey, " I was told. " He claims life is but a farce, and he ' s staying up there until he can think of a really good reason to come down. So far, he ' s done nothing but toss peanut shells on the people below. " I dodged a volley myself and traveled on. Suddenly, with a loud blast, a long green car drew up beside me. It was Loey and Anne, and after greeting them, I asked what they were doing. Loey was aghast. " What! " she cried, throwing away a banana peel and starting on an almond Hershey. " Haven ' t you seen Anne on Broadway? " No, " I gulped. " Is she an actress? " Anne blushed modestly, just missing a telegraph pole, while Loey explained, " She ' s the greatest living actress today. I ' m here to watch her diet — you know what food can do! Want a Life Saver? " she questioned. " No, " said I, pitying Anne ' s hungry ex- pression. That afternoon Anne and Loey took me to a concert given by Helen and Mary Adams, back from their European tour. Mary had acquired a foreign accent and smoked Tur- kish cigarettes in a long jeweled holder, while Helen sported a devastating Lelong gown and six diamond bracelets. They sang beautifully, and were accompanied by those amazing artists, Harriet Case and Merritt Starr. Afterwards, Harriet and Merritt invited us out to their rose-covered cottage in Win- netka, but unfortunately my time was too limited. Back on the street, I saw a brass band ap- proaching, evidently heralding a tall man rolling along on a ball. It was Roger Fisher, and he carried a sign announcing: " Around the World on a Ball — Non Stop Flight. " Roger looked quite strained, and had a dif- ficult struggle in balancing and driving off souvenir hunters. Wearily I went into a drug store for norish- ment, and while downing a coke, I noticed a most peculiar contraption on the counter. " That ' s called ' Wieboldt ' s Folly ' , " the clerk explained. " The inventor forgot to explain what it was, but it must be good. That guy ' s an electrical wizard. " " Where ' s Wieboldt now? " I queried. " He ' s on an Hawaiian expedition, but you know how much he ' ll accomplish with all those hulas around! " The man winked know- ingly. " Hmm, I always thought Jim was the monk type, " I murmured as I left the store. A movie next door drew my eye, and I bought a ticket, for relaxation from my lively afternoon. A newsreel flashed on, and re- vealed Eleanor Daughaday. " This fearless woman has done much for the African Flat- foots, " the announcer ' s voice began. " Here she is shown converting the savages to red coats, just like her own, when a young girl in America. " The savages were shown clasp- ing the coats tightly to their brown bodies, while Eleanor, in a white helmet, smiled in gleeful pleasure. When I came out, I noticed an engaging figure flipping pancakes in a store window across the street. Yes, it was Bill Davies, (Continued on page 68) Br " S ■ «■ ' ' ' ' " BMBh lI 1 ■nflM ■» ; ig ii.

LIFE OF A JUNIOR On the steps of the office a young Junior sat, Singing " Willow, titwillow, titwillow! " I sat down beside her and gave her a pat, Singing " Willow, titwillow, titwillow! " I said to her, " Silly, why are you so mad? Oh have you been wicked or terribly bad? Or is it some teacher who ' s made you so mad? " " Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow! " She answered me sadly and heaved a great sigh, Singing " Willow, titwillow, titwillow! " And murmured so grimly, " I ' ll never get by, " Singing " Willow, titwillow, titwillow! " " My teachers all told me I never would pass, If I didn ' t work harder to shine in each class, But I didn ' t — so now I ' m a sad little lass. " " Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!

The faculty has striven hard To fill our minds with knowledge, In hopes that we will make them proud Of work we do in college. Our boys were good at football; The girls at hockey, too; The Sophomores playing basketball Could show you what to do. We helped along the Vaudeville With " Kaplan " and " Winnie-The-Pooh " While " Gondoliers " produced some stars With voices clear and true. We had good sports for parents; - They turned out ' most en masse, To show us what we look like, Now we ' re a Sophomore class. We seemed to cause them worry ' Bout cars and dates and thin gs, But hope we have convinced them We ' re normal human beings. We ' ve had our cares and troubles And also pranks and fun, But think we ' re pretty clever When all is said and done. Fourth flow — J. Ziebctrth, H. Odell, J. Nathan, J. Galloway, A. Davis.

THE EIGHTH GRADE The eighth grade this year has been en- gaged in various activities, one of which was to make the building prettier. On the hall- way wall of the first floor was painted a zoological mural, partly by the eighth grade. The grade has also this year produced some morning exercises. The first was a dramatization of " Winnie The Pooh " , which was done at Francis Parker School, too. Because of absences, the planned Wash- ington play wasn ' t given on Washington ' s birthday, but a debate was given instead. The debate was " Were the Americans right in thinking they were mistreated? " A danc- ing exercise and one on dictatorship were also given. Outside our building was a plot of ground which needed cultivating. So we set to work, dug up the ground and fenced it, and tried to find out how to prepare it for grass seed. One of the projects of the eighth grade was issuing weekly newspapers. At first many people were ambitious and several issues of their papers were printed. But after a few weeks only two papers remained. These two, The Silver Streak and The Shrimptown Bugle, went on all through the spring t erm. We also went on some trips. We went through the Daily News Building and saw how the newspaper is printed. Seeing that we had set up a court in our room to try offenders of regulations, we thought it would be a good idea to go and see some courts in action. On the first trip we went to the County Court Building, and on the second, to the Federal District Court. The second trip was more interesting, but we learned things from both. Besides these ' accomplishments, the eighth grade had a photography contest, the girls organized cooking, and some boys collected money for the skating rink. Altogether, this has been a successful year. Third flow— W. Rollins, W. Gale, J. Ringling, R. Battan, D. Curtis, R. Brirtenham, D. Boyd, B. Arbogast, J. Maynard, D. Boyd, T. McNabb. Second flow — M.

Hannaford. THE SEVENTH GRADE This year ' s seventh grade has done a variety of things. We have taken charge of putting up the flag every morning. Rex Brittenham blew the bugle. The boys put the flag up and the girls took it down. At the beginning of the year, the seventh grade gave the Thanksgiving play about the Pilgrims ' first Thanksgiving. Both the purple and white sections took part in it. It was fun planning and acting in it. Around October we had a grade party. It started at about six o ' clock and ended about nine. After supper we had movies about a puppy who almost got drowned and burned up and had many other exciting experiences. When Christmas came around, both sec- tions made stained glass windows. First we made a design on paper and then put it on the window in tissue paper. There were many different designs. We took a trip to the Planetarium in Chi- cago. A man gave a lecture about the stars and planets, and how this day came to be. They had a wonderful machine that went around and showed the moon, the sun, and the planets on the ceiling. In social studies we read a book called He went with Marco Polo. Then we drew puppets and clothed them in different colored cloth for a puppet show about Marco Polo. There were two puppet shows, one given by the purple section and one by the white. People paired off in groups of two or three to work on one scene. Each group made all the puppets for the scene and also the scen- ery. The whites worked their puppets by sticks from behind stage and the purples worked theirs by strings.

Loomis, M. Freiler. THE SIXTH GRADE THE COMMENCEMENT PLAY The Sixth Grade gave " Marco Polo " for the Lower School commencement play. Marco Polo lived in Venice. His uncle and his father took many journeys to Kublai Khan of China. One day Marco ' s father told him that he could go to see Kublai Khan. Marco had wanted to go for a long time, so Marco, his father, and his uncle set off for China. They went most of the way by land. Marco stayed in China for many years, before he went home. A war broke out a while later and Marco was taken prisoner. Marco told his prison mate about his adventures and his mate wrote them. They were made into a book. Marco stayed in prison for two years. Finally, he got out and went home to Venice. He was then a famous author, but many people would not believe his tales. " THE TRAVELING MUSICIANS " This year Miss Hancock helped us give " The Traveling Musicians " , an operetta taken from a Grimm ' s Fairy Tale. We had two casts, so everyone was in it. The story is about a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a cock, whose masters want to get rid of them because they are too old. So they all meet at the donkey ' s stall and plan to run away to be traveling town musicians. Later they meet some robbers, out- wit them, and find a place to stay for the rest of their days.

And then they come down upon a different town. Those leaves of red, yellow, green, and brown. Halloween Day is lots of fun. Carving pumpkins is lots of fun, Playing tricks and asking for treats, Ringing doorbells down every street. But after the fun, Bed time will come. It ' s Halloween night when the witches take flight, And pumpkins show their candle light. The ghosts rise up from their graves so dark, All the cats howl and all the dogs bark. When winter comes there ' s usually snow And the children yell, " Hi ho! Hi, ho! Let ' s go out and make a snowman today, While it is really nice to play. " ■ m ■ ■ m Second Row: R. Von Wening, P. Mayer, B. A. Perlstein, J. Mayer, B. Bradstreet. First Row: V. Daughaday, F. Dumbaugh, E. Garard. Absent: T. Glaser, K. Curtis, M. Marsh. THE FOURTH GRADE SEPTEMBER — Kenneth brought two mice to school today. They have a very cute cage. It has a whirl- ing exercise porch and a little painted roof. Both mice are white with pink ears, pink paws, pink noses, and pink tails. It is fun to stop the cage and watch the mice nose about trying to sense the trouble. Today we decided to go to see our bees in the old building. When we took off the wooden slats we saw around sixty thousand bees. They were forming wax on the glass. There is a little hole leading out- side where the bees fly around to gather pollen and nectar. We expect to bring our bees to this new building when the weather is colder. OCTOBER — One day we went to a bee farm. The owner had forty hives in his yard. He squeezed a worker bee so it would sting him so we could see the stinger and the poison sac. Mr. Stecker says that a mosquito bite hurts him more than a bee sting. DECEMBER — We had a Toy Shop party with our parents. We thought it would be nice to decorate the dining room. We measured the big green screen in the dining room so we would know how big to make a picture. Then we measured the same amount of space on the blackboard and then drew pictures on the board. Miss Fullerton ordered some cloth. The big picture was about Santa Claus and his sleigh and reindeers. We put a Christmas tree at one end. We put a bag of toys in the sleigh. We gave the picture to a children ' s ward in a hospital. Third Row: J. Smith, J. Driscoll, J. Anderson, D. Kidd. Second flow: B. Hicks, J. Turner, P. Will, B. Pabst. First flow: S. Smith, T. Pick, S. Freiler, S. Burnett, E. Walrath, T. Spiegel, D. Earhart. THE THIRD GRADE FROM THE THIRD GRADE NEWSPAPER " For a long time people in Winnetka have wanted to have the railroad tracks over or under the streets, and now they are going under the ground at Elm Street. " We go to the tracks almost every day. We see a lot and we learn a lot, too. Today we climbed mountains of dirt. We crossed the tracks and could see everything. " Today we went to see Carmeno. He is the flag- man at Oak Street. He planted a pretty garden, but it was dug up. His work will soon be done for good, because the tracks are going to be depressed. Car- meno is sixty-three years old. He is going to California because it is warm. The North Western will give him a pension. He likes a warm country. Italy is warm. " Mr. Woolhiser came to school to tell us about the grade separation. He is the Manager of Winnetka. He is not the Mayor. The village has a council. " Come see the Third Grade miniature plan of the grade separation project in Winnetka. Everything was made by the children; even the buildings and the trains. We are going to do everything the men do on the tracks. We have made the Willow Street underpass. " Winnetka was not very safe when it came to safety first, but it was gotten after when worse came to worst. And soon, in 1940, the job will be done. " My! Goodness Gracious!! What Improvements!!! " Second Bow: I. Miller, B. Pontius, A. Spiegel, M. Blecker, S. Nelson, J. Harris, D. Loomis. First Row: S. Searle, G. Booth, H. Corkran, W. Clore, J. Davis. THE SECOND GRADE IN THE FALL The heavy winds blow the tree tops And showers of leaves fall down On the green grass and flowers. The trees aren ' t green anymore. They are painted Red, yellow and brown. IN THE WINTER Oh snowflakes, oh snowflakes, How do you fall? We fall from heaven So carefully and gently. We like to make everything pretty. Little evergreens — how pretty you are. Oh snowflakes, oh snowflakes. IN THE SPRING All the birds come back again. They fly so high To make their nests In a tree. The flowers bloom again And rabbits go wandering To try to eat them. N. Burch, J. Garard, A. McDevitt, W. Barnes, D. Duff, N. Jones, J. Driscoll. THE FIRST GRADE OUR TRIP TO THE FIRE HOUSE The man rang the bell on the fire engine. It was loud. The fire chief ' s hat was different from the fireman ' s There was a great big bell on the left side of the wall. There were poles on both sides. One bell has three little bells and the other has only one bell. I saw a lantern shine on the front of the truck. It was very red and it turned around to the right and to the left and it signaled people to get off the road. I liked the big rubber boots. They were by the fire engines so that the men could step into them quickly. I liked the birds on the firemen ' s hats. I liked the fire chief ' s office, too. On the front of the engines one light was red and one was green. The light on top of the engine was large. I liked the tower. The tower was to drain the hoses and dry them. When the man slid down the pole, he slid slowly at first, then slid fast. He held on to the pole with his arms, because if he held the pole with his hands, he ' d tear his shirt. We saw the axes on the engines to chop down the roof and windows. We saw bars to break down locked doors. Third Row.- K. Goodkind, J. Blecker, W. Gorham, G. Moller. Second flow: M. Royer, J. Wilcox, R. Lowrey, W. Trout, E. Williams, R. Wehr, J. Booth. Firs( Row: C. Missner, A. Goodkind. KINDERGARTEN We have a guinea pig and a rabbit in our room this year. The guinea pig is named " Betty Jane, " and the rabbit is named " Bunny. " They both eat lettuce, carrots, and cabbage. Betty Jane squeals for her food. Bunny likes to hop around the room. He is very soft. SPORTS SCHOOL SPORTS « § % § 23 15 28 48 1 19 ir 20 " 17 ,5ft FOOTBALL Last year saw the lighter football teams follow the Varsity ' s example and play smart and winning football. Led by the middleweights who experienced an undefeated season the records of the games won and lost gives North Shore the edge nearly everywhere. One of the high spots of the football season was the announcing of the middleweight vic- tories one after another. Of course there were other thrills during the season, such as ones happening in games. However another interesting sidelight was the manner in which the heavyweight squad handled the job of taking exercises. There are some prospective wrestlers on that squad; people who do nothing but grunt like blazes. The sight of Spike (coat off) working hard with his petits enfants off in one corner of the field makes life seem worth living. Every once in a while (if there is an east wind blowing) Mr. M ' s mild ejacu- lations at the antics of his charges during a tough scrimmage brings a smile even to the most battered player on the field. The teams did not spend the season playing among themselves but had outside games. Several were played with Skokie and a few with Lake Forest among others. This gave everybody a chance to get the feeling of going up against outside opposition and playing against boys they do not know. Experience of this kind is very important if the younger boys are going to be of any use to the Varsity in coming years. From the looks and sounds which were prevalent on the field last fall, the Varsity has a great deal of material to work with in the coming years. In talking about the younger teams one can not forget the faithful help that Mr. Taylor, Mr. Gleason, Mr. Robinson, Mr. Millet, Mr. White and other members of the faculty have given. C TEAM D TEAM E TEAM VARSITY FOOTBALL This year, as usual, great throngs of interested spectators and students turned out to watch the Varsity. Besides the usual help which the Varsity has had from Mr. Anderson the team was ably coached by a line and a backfield coach. The helpful assistance of Mr. Lambert and Mrs. Wells in these latter capacities certainly strengthened the team. The first Varsity test came in the opening game with Harvard School. Harvard had already added a string of victories to their record and seemed to have reason to be con- fident of victory. However, an aggressive North Shore aggregation came up against them and Harvard was easily outplayed in the first three quarters. A break in the fourth quarter gave Harvard the ball on our twenty after which a few quick plunges and end runs suc- ceeded in putting the ball across the line. Harvard missed the attempted conversion and the final gun shortly afterwards left the score at, Harvard 6, North Shore 0. However, the team had little reason to feel downhearted, since they had shown real punch in everything but their touchdown drives. The game, though, gave them real reason for dejection when Wheaton Academy handed them another beating. The morale of the North Shore eleven seemed to be left at home and the team was definitely lacking in pep, spirit and drive. Even a powerful tongue lashing from Doc during the half seemed to do little to wake up the players and the score at the end of the game stood Wheaton 7, North Shore 0. During the next week vigorous practice was accompanied by comments on our last week ' s play which seemed to stir up the team into a frenzy of activity. The next game was with Todd School from Woodstock and they were the top heavy favorites, coming up to North Shore with a so far undefeated record under their belts. North Shore came up to the game with a brilliant offense and a hard driving defense and the Todd boys were unable to hold up or to press us. After a hard fought battle, with North Shore holding a constant edge, the score was North Shore 12, Todd 0. The celebration of our first victory was restrained due to the need of practicing for the next game. Francis Parker was the next opponent and they were after blood due to the series of defeats which they had withstood at our hands. When they showed up with a lighter team North Shore was confident, but during the first half their confidence was unrewarded. During the second half North Shore started an active offensive and ran up a fifteen to nothing lead. Wholesale substitutions on North Shore were then made and an intercepted lateral pass paved the way to Parker ' s only score in the final minutes of the game. The final score, North Shore 15, Parker 7. Then came our conquerors of last season, Latin, for the windup of the season. The largest crowd of the season turned out on Friday to watch what promised to be a super- thriller. From the starting whistle the game was packed with action. On the first play North Shore recovered their own kickoff when Latin fumbled, but after a hard drive failed to push the ball past the goal line. Another threat by North Shore finished the half as they put over a touchdown netting six points. North Shore started to defend their lead in the second half when a successful and exciting pass tallied another score. Latin then retaliated by pushing across their first score of the day against little opposition. Latin scored again and completed their conversion putting themselves into a one point lead. Behind 13 to 12, Bob Gordon displayed his usual style in his last game when he led the team to their final touchdown, and the final one of the game, which ended after North Shore successfully held the ball to the end of game. The final score, North Shore 19, Latin 13. BASKETBALL At the beginning of the basketball season we expected many victories, since we had all of last year ' s squad. Practice started a week before Christmas vacation and during the last week of vacation, we continued getting in shape with an alumni game. The next week the team went into intensive practice and seemed prepared to meet Milwaukee, its first opponent. A bit nervous, however, and weak on free-throws, the team did not seem to get together, and the score was rather discouraging, North Shore losing, 33-14. Then came an awakening game with Fell ' s clothiers, a team of New Trier students, who met more opposition from us than they had expected. We lost the game, 20-13, but were improving. After an uncertain bus trip out to Todd School in Woodstock, North Shore played its third game. The Junior Varsity, playing its first game, showed its strength in keeping ahead or very close to the opponents throughout the game, losing in the last few minutes of play. The Varsity again slow in starting and playing rough and crowded ball, failed to equal its swift opponent ' s early scoring. There was much fouling resulting from the close guard- ing. North Shore was not playing poorly as the score of 29-20 might indicate; it was playing against real opposition. The following Thursday we played Fell ' s in a thrilling return game. The opponents were outclassed from the start, and the half ended, 15-13, in favor of North Shore. Fell ' s came back strong in the second half, but soon tired, and in the closing quarter North Shore, led by John Wilson ' s scoring, put the game on ice, winning 31-26. The next game was against Lake Forest Academy. The Varsity played first and was quickly swept off its feet by a score of 40-24. Lake Forest had little trouble except in the opening of the second half when North Shore made a sudden and short attempt to block its opponents. The Junior Varsity also found the going hard, although Lake Forest ' s strength appeared centered in one player. The first half of its game ended 17-7. The second showed marked but insufficient gains, for North Shore lost 23-19. In the last game of the series, North Shore vainly tried to down Fell ' s team, which clung to its lead by small margins throughout the game. In the last quarter Captain Gordon sank two long shots, temporarily worrying Mr. Abe Fell on the sidelines, but the latter ' s team held out for a 29-24 victory. The next Saturday North Shore ventured north to Milwaukee Country Day School. At first Milwaukee ran away with scoring, leading at the half 13-8. A rousing ' pep talk by Mr. Wells launched a fierce scoring attack by Bob Gordon, who let loose with a few ringers from way out that had the crowd gasping and the opponents dazed. The game, however, ended in a tie. Then two tense, thrilling overtime periods were played, but failed to change the score. As a last chance to end the clash, each team threw free-throws, North Shore failing to account for as many as Milwaukee. The final score was 31-30 in favor of Milwaukee. North Shore next played Chicago Latin on February 21. The Junior Varsity played first and lost by one point in the last minute of play after outplaying their larger opponents throughout the game. The Varsity took the lead early in its game and held it until the fourth quarter. Latin kept close behind and finally tied the score. Two extra periods were played and in the final minutes of the second, Latin tipped in the winning basket to win 23-21. North Shore ' s first team lost its return game with Lake Forest 38-24, but it held these wizards to a closer game than the first one. The Junior Varsity won its game and was in top form. The tenth game of the season was a victory for the North Shore quintet. The victim was Francis Parker which trailed throughout the game. The game was rough, but the opposition mild. The final score was 25-15. The Junior Varsity lost pitifully to a lively Parker team. The final game was with Todd and it was a real thriller. North Shore was eager for victory, and it seemed as though it was inevitable, but in the last two minutes Todd squeezed into a lead, winning 33-30. The Junior Varsity won its game for a successful ending. BASEBALL This year the baseball team ' s spring training was very brief due to the late date of the opera performances and a week of continual showers. However, after the opera was over and the weather cleared up, the team got outside and started developing a really hard hit- ting ball club. As many of last year ' s regulars remained, the prospects for the team were very good. Besides the veterans, there was a bunch of rookies which included many future stars from the Freshman class. This group was organized as the Junior Varsity, and they played many a thrilling game with Frances Parker and Milwaukee. They won two games in the three game series with Parker and easily defeated Milwaukee. The Varsity schedule was an exceptionally long one with over ten games on the calendar, and therefore up to two games a week had to be played. Thus, there was some hard pitch- ing in store for Bill Watkins, who was our only pitcher, although Bill Taylor was borrowed from the Junior Varsity for a game with the Evanston Junior Varsity. The season opened with a 2-0 practice game victory over the Evanston Junior Varsity. The next two games exposed weak fielding and poor batting. We lost one of them to Latin by a score of 5-2 and the other to Milwaukee, 8-5. The following afternoons were devoted to hard work on fielding, and an outside pitcher, Ed Vonick, was brought over for batting practice. The result was a series of easy victories with North Shore running up scores of not less than fourteen points per game. This streak was started at University High where we scored fourteen runs on eleven hits while our opponents got no runs and no hits. The next game we defeated Lake Forest 17-0 and drove out fourteen hits. The team showed an ever-increasing confidence from then on and went up to Lake Forest the following Wednesday to defeat them again. That Friday we defeated Latin 16-4 and thus made up for our earlier defeat at their hands. At this point in the season the Varsity has won five games out of seven and the Junior Varsity has won three out of four. Both teams have several more games to be played before the end of the year. 6IRLS ' VARSITY HOCKEY THIRD AND FOURTH TEAMS f gill f f 1 f % SPORTS TEAMS SECOND TEAM MIDDLE SCHOOL TEAMS HOCKEY The hockey teams this year were all very successful, due to the excellent coaching of Mrs. Gleason and the untiring enthusiasm of the girls. There were no losses by any team and only four ties. Three games were scheduled and three playdays, which are the games with schools forbidden to participate in inter-scholastic games. In the playdays the teams are all mixed so that there are some of each team on both sides. The schedule started by a playday with New Trier at New Trier on October 5th. On October 15th Evanston joined North Shore in a playday here. On Octo ber 28th Francis Parker played with us, and on November 15th there was a return playday with New Trier, also here. The three games were scheduled on our field, and the first one was against Chicago Latin, November 11th. The Varsity tied them 1-1 in a fast game, but one which should have been won by several points. North Shore put its goal in during the first half, and Latin tied the score in the second. On November 4th North Shore defeated Roycemore 1-0. This was a tougher game than the first, and the Varsity was much improved with more aggressiveness on the part of the for- ward line, fewer fouls, and more organized team play. The winning point was scored in the first half, and although there were other attempts in the second, they were not counted because of off-sides and dangerous hitting. The last game was against Milwaukee Downer Seminary, a school against which we have not played for a long time. We renewed the old rivalry with a 1-1 tie. This was the most thrilling and hardfought game of the year, and having expected to be thoroughly trounced, North Shore was agreeably surprised by the outcome. In the first two games four teams played, and in the last one, two. The scores of these games are as follows: THE SECOND TEAM North Shore 2 Chicago Latin North Shore ...... 2 Roycemore ...... North Shore 1 Milwaukee Downer .... THE THIRD TEAM North Shore 1 Chicago Latin North Shore 1 Roycemore 1 THE FOURTH TEAM North Shore ...... 4 Chicago Latin ..... 2 North Shore 1 Roycemore At the end of the schedule the Varsity was humiliated twice, for they were beaten by the football team 1-0 and tied by the faculty 1-1. After all th e games the players were royally treated to cider and doughnuts and when it grew cold, to cocoa and doughnuts. This year three girls, Janet Jenkins, Peggy Boyd, and Eleanor Daughday, made the North Shore Allied School-Girls ' Team and two others, Betty Mercer and Lois Mason, were made members of the honorary second team. Although the North Shore team lost to the Chicago team, 1-0, it was a close game and grand experience for the Country Day players. The annual hockey dinner completed this fine season late in November. Anne Strong was the toastmistress. Speeches were given by Mr. Corkran, Mrs. Gleason, Mr. Anderson, and the captain, Janet Jenkins, announced the succeeding captain, Lois Mason. The former manager, Peggy Boyd, announced the manager for 1939, Mamie Burnham. The gravity of the occasion was lightened by stunts from each class and group singing. GIRLS ' BASKETBALL Girls ' basketball, this year, was on the road to recovery after several seasons of com- parative inactivity. Since only one interscholastic game was played, that game was espe- cially important, and everyone was well satisfied by the outcome. On February 25th, two teams played Roycemore in the Roycemore gym. The Varsity played an offensive game throughout. In the first half, which was the most active, 14 points were made by North Shore and 2 by Roycemore. The final score was 20-4 in favor of North Shore. The second team also gained a victory, although it was a very close game. Fighting hard to break a 7-7 tie, North Shore finally made a basket, bringing the final score to 9-7. Besides our one outside game, there was an intramural series, in which every class play- ed each of the other three. There was a great deal of enthusiasm in this series, and many hard battles. At the end the Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores tied for first place. The conflict between the boys and the girls was rather pitiful. Greatly encouraged by their great victory over Roycemore, the girls had a large amount of confidence, which was quickly shaken by the speed and accuracy of their opponents. The game was not a com- plete walk-away, however, as the girls got one basket in the last half, making the final score 2-30. The second team fared better than the first team, losing by a score of 4-26. In short, the season was considered a success and the prospects for next year ' s basket- ball are very good. ACTIVITIES CANDIDLY CANDID THE PURPLE AND WHITE The Purple and White this year has continued the experiment started last year of putting out a weekly instead of a monthly paper. We were at first handicapped by the lack of trained staff members, since only two-fifths of the staff last year were Juniors and Sophomores, with no Freshmen at all, and no new recruits outside of the Senior Class were made until the end of last year, when the new editors took over. The weekly form has required much greater organization and coordination than the monthly form, and at busy periods, such as examination and opera time, it has required very careful planning to avoid putting too heavy a strain on the staff. The staff on the whole has done very good work this year, cooperating with each other, and meeting its deadlines punctually. In order to lessen the great responsi- bility of the editor-in-chief, we have tried a co-editorship this year with great success. The plan will be continued next year with this change: One of the co-editors will be a Junior, who will presumably continue as co-editor the following year, with a whole year ' s experi- ence to the good. Some of our worries this year have been financial, however, and not editorial. We found that a high-pressure subscription drive is essential to the present weekly paper, because the printing costs are considerably higher than in the old monthly form. The financial staff made up the deficient subscription drive through advertisements during the year, and a happy ending to what looked like a rather critical situation. We have tried to introduce some literary material other than pure news articles this year, and we hope that future staffs will go on working on this problem, because the school needs a literary publication, as well as news. We have tried to develop the idea of report- ing events of interest around school, no matter how small, as we see them, in order to lighten the pages of the " Purp " and get away from the routine assigned articles as much as we can. Organization and routine are utterly necessary, but the better the organization, the more freedom there should be in it for variation. We have appreciated the new " Purp " room very much, but we sincerely urge that some arrangement be made so that we can use the room out of school hours, when we make up the dummy and do most of our other work. THE MIRROR The most practical way to see what the Mirror board has done this year is to look through this yearbook, for there is not much use in going into lengthy detail about something that is right before your eyes. Each year the staff of the Mirror likes to show the progress that it has made over the previous year, and thus the quality of the book keeps marching forward. This year we feel that the greatest improvement is in the organization of the material in the book. We have not scattered snapshots throughout the book, but instead have tried to put most of our snaps on two page spreads. This makes it possible to have many of the popular candid pictures, and still keep the book looking neat and artistic. The other thing of importance that we have done is to put identifications under the class pictures. This was done several years ago, and we have restored the practice because we believe that the most important function of school annuals is to remind people of their old friends many years after the book has been published. As in past years, all our funds have come from subscriptions and advertising. In both of these fields, we have equalled last year ' s remarkable records, and we dare say that we have equalled their remarkable book! May we express our gratitude to all those who are not on the board, but have helped so much in the publishing of this book. STUDENT GOVERNMENT At the beginning of the school term the student government did the customary thing in passing a new constitution. Since it was concise, it eliminated a good deal of the red tape and useless discussion that have been the weak points in previous student governments. The other important feature of this new set of rules was that the council was given full power to pass measures. With a republican, instead of a democratic form of government, it was necessary to have an intelligent and efficient council. This was doubly assured by the addition to the membership of the council of three delegates-at-large, the vice president, treasurer and secretary. Furthermore, a class could replace its delegates any time it felt the move necessary, and class delegates, although serving a half year, were elected in alter- nate quarter periods so that the council always contained at least fifty per cent old members. The town meetings were held as usual, to have elections and to hear committee re- ports, and also to act as censor for the council. Every measure passed by the council had to be discussed by the town meeting so that the students would understand it. Virtually, the town meeting held its former position of lawmaker, but the quibbling that has sometimes prolonged meetings was entirely dispensed with. This year we sent a delegation to the annual meeting of Illinois student councils that was held at Maine Township High School. The people that attended it felt that North Shore could give and receive much at these meetings in the future, and that we should become regular members. In conclusion, after having tried out a new form of student government, and a new extension of it, it seems that both are improvements and that both should and can be de- veloped further still. THE ORCHESTRA The orchestra has had a good year. We lost a few members at the end of last year, notably our brass section, but we have had lots of strings and flutes and clarinets, with a seasoned player at the head of each section. Mr. Swigart has trained the strings sepa- rately on Wednesday noons, and we have had joint rehearsals on Tuesday afternoons. At the beginning of the year we warmed up on some simple things, and then started preparing a program which included Beethoven ' s First Symphony. We didn ' t get it in shape, however, before Christmas, so we had to wait until alter the opera before giving it. A few strings contributed to the offstage music of the Christmas Play, as they have in past years. The orchestra also contributed more robustly to the May Day Dances with such tunes as Nancy ' s Fanny, Black Nag, Pop Goes the Weazel, and others. The orchestra ' s most important effort was, of course, in the annual Gilbert and Sul- livan operetta. These productions are very valuable experience for the orchestra, as the players must learn to sight read well and to be always on their toes. The Gondoliers is a moderately difficult operetta, with the little, very tough spots, so typical of Sullivan ' s music, mixed in among pages of easy going " oompahs. " The orchestra players, incidentally, should never have trouble in reading manuscript music, after conquering the rented hen-tracks from which they play the opera music each year. Our final contribution was to the graduation music. The first violinist, cellist, and clari- netist being Seniors, the orchestra was somewhat depleted for this occasion. We hape that more players will rise next year to fill the places that these Seniors have filled for the last few years. We know that there is talent in the school, and the orchestra will need it next year. 1939 OPERA As is its annual custom, North Shore again produced a Gilbert and Sullivan opera. The opera chosen for this year ' s performance was The King of Barafaria, perhaps better known as The Gondoliers. The scene is laid in Venice, and, as is the case in most Gilbert and Sullivan operas, it concerns the mistaken identity of several persons, one of which is the King of Barataria. The complications arising from this tangle furnish the opera with a lively theme and the usual gay and witty play on words. Incidentally, a good many of the words were in Italian, but the chorus had no trouble handling the pronunciation or the significance. The art department with the stage crew and other departments produced some very realistic scenery and managed to manipulate the smooth sailing of gondolas. The orchestra, under the practiced direction of Mr. Duff and reinforced by several professional musicians, made possible the musical end. Neither the chorus nor the leads disappointed us, but held up the standards of the performances, both in singing and acting. Several unforeseen incidents retarded the progress of the opera. Due to an epidemic of the flu, it was postponed until two and a half weeks after Spring Vacation, which gave us the much needed time in which to perfect the details of singing and to ensure the con- tinuity of action. Much credit is due to Mr. Duff, Mr. Smith, and Miss Radcliffe who gave us much of their valuable time. The parents, also, worked tirelessly and even faster than usual to provide us with costumes before Miss Bacon left. A new experiment was tried this year, and as the book is now going to press, we are not able to find out how it turned out. Some of the boys took movies and at the same time made recordings of the songs. They then hope to synchronize the pictures and recordings, and thus have a sound movie. Much of the film will be color, and we think that it will turn out very well. SENIOR PLAY On February third and fourth the Senior Class presented its annual play, this year J. M. Barrie ' s Alice-Sit-by-the-Fire. The story is typical of Barrie ' s gentle, human handling of plot, and contains much of the author ' s delightful and subtle humor. Alice was a woman who returned to England with her husband, Colonel Gray, after a five years ' stay at an army post in India. This gay, frivolous mother had not seen her children during the years abroad, and they proved a great surprise to her. Amy, seventeen and under the influence of Ginevra, a wordly school mate, tried to appear sophisticated. Cosmo, the son in his early teens, determined to be manly and aloof, and thus Alice did not get along with either of the children. On the other hand, they liked the Colonel very much. When Amy and Ginevra heard Alice make an assignation with Steve, an old friend in India, the misguided maidens decided that Amy must save her mother. The following scene in Steve ' s quarters was one of the best parts because of the clever humor. All turned out well in the end, however, with Alice ' s subtlety victorious over her husband and unsuspecting children. The settings were typically Victorian due to the combination of Mrs. Strong ' s furniture and the stage crew ' s efforts. The first and third acts took place in the flowery sitting room designed by Amy, and the second act was in the more conservative dwelling of Steve. The costumes were also very well done. The girls dressed in tight waist lines and long skirts, while the boys appeared quite contented with their Prince Alberts and mustaches. Instead of the usual six weeks or more for rehearsals, this year ' s class had only four weeks. Undoubtedly, two more weeks would have improved the performances, but under the circumstances the casts did very well. The Seniors are especially grateful to Miss Rad- cliffe and Mr. Smith who gave much time and effort to the production, and who served as guiding lights during the darkest hours of trial and despair! THE VAUDEVILLE To raise some badly needed funds, the student government revived the traditional Vau- deville. Last year we lived on our surplus, but as there was not much money left at the beginning of this year, we decided to put on a new, super show. It was given the week- end before Thanksgiving, and as we had hoped, was a great financial success. Instead of the usual ten acts, the Vaudeville managers got fifteen acts together, and the performance was characterized not only by quantity, but also by quality. The faculty rode off with first prize with their dignified Floradora Sextet. The Senior girls ' discordant swing band, the Junior girls ' shady Little Women, and the Sophomore boys ' adolescent Winnie-the-Pooh will long be remembered as acts which brought the house down with hearty applause or groans of laughter. Practically no scenery was used, and thus the stage crew was exceptionally small. The management did an excellent job in running the acts smoothly and without long intermis- sions. Much credit for the success of the show may be given to the spirit in which it was done and the fine organization. After the curtain fell on the last act, everyone crowded into the girls ' gym for the Soph- omore Dance. Bill Lynton ' s college band lived up to its reputation and everyone went home feeling that the evening had been a great success. THE CHRISTMAS PLAY This year the Ninth Grade gave as its Christmas Play, Lady Gregory ' s translation of Douglas Hyde ' s story of the Nativity. The story is very interesting in its origin. For many generations it was handed down by word of mouth, and thus when Hyde started collecting these old tales, there were many different versions. The story dealt with the search of two women for the Virgin Mary, whom they had wronged, and who they hoped would forgive them. Also included in the play was the Adoration of Christ by the Magi and the shepherds. Those Freshmen who did not have parts in the play worked long and hard on the scenery. The set was made up of a series of hills in the background, through which the kings made a winding entrance. In front of the hills was a stable, complete with a thatched roof, and all around the stage there were trees, rocks, and birds. We gave careful study to the costumes and properties, and even went so far as to make an astrolabe for one of the kings. As in many Christmas plays, the last scene was the most impressive. The girls, dressed as angels, climbed up in back of the stable and on to the hills. Combined with beautiful lighting and offstage singing, the effect was very lovely. We had a lot of fun in preparing the play, and we tried to make each pers on stand out as having definite characteristics. One of the most interesting things was assigning the speeches. On the script they were designated as " King " , " Shepherd " , or " Woman " , but we had to assign them to defnite kings, shepherds, and women. In order to do this, we had to analyze each person ' s character and then decide which speeches brought out these char- acteristics. THE TOY SHOP The Santa Claus Toy Shop was a great success this year due to the splendid coopera- tion of everyone in the High School and to the production of eight new varieties of toys. Instead of the usual single Toy Shop manager, the Toy Shop was operated under the supervision of co-managers, Eleanor Daughaday and Don McCluskey. The Shop was di- vided into the Doll, Game, Book, Old Clothes, Canned Goods, Toy, and Paint Departments, each headed by a Senior who supervised its activities. The Lower School operated its own Toy Shop in which toys were both made and repaired. After three weeks of intensive work by students, their parents were invited to the Toy Shop Party. There was a large turnout of both Mothers and Fathers. The Mothers worked in the Doll and Old Clothes Departments, and the Fathers in the wood working shop. Santa Claus never had a better crew of workers! After several hours of hard work, refreshments were served to all who attended. Our Toy Shop assisted many charities in making Christmas a happy day for a great number of children. THE CHRISTMAS PARTY On December 16th, everyone gathered in the gym and gayly sang " Jingle Bells " while a few Senior boys carried in the Yule log with a parade of Kindergarteners following them. The log was set down by Santa Claus ' chair and the small children grouped around Marion Wilson as she read the poem, " The Night before Christmas. " At the opportune moment, just as she was reading the part which tells of St. Nick coming down the chimney with a bound, in came Santa himself. He was welcomed very heartily by Mr. Smith and was greatly pleased with the toys which his helpers would distribute on Christmas to the eagerly awaiting children. He settled himself in his chair, with little children clamoring to be near him, and watched the different grades do their various dances for his entertainment. When they were finished, he gave a stocking filled with pop corn balls to each grade in the Lower School. Some people thought that Santa ' s voice was astonishingly like John Howard ' s. Then something very original happened. Mr. Smith was presented with a birthday cake. He was greatly pleased, as was everyone else, and he was surprised that anyone should have discovered that it was his birthday. Santa Claus then left amid a great deal of clapping, and the party was over. CLASS PROPHECY (Continued from page 20) and between flips he would flash his per- sonality smile on a customer. " Listen, big boy, you ' re nuttin ' but a flipper to me, " I heard her mutter, but, as usual, Bill re- mained unsquelched. Turning away, I almost crashed into a small blonde hurrying along the street. " Jane Hardy! " I yelped in joy, and before long we were visiting in her streamlined black and chrome pent house. " Aren ' t you married? " I inquired curiously. " No, not exactly, " Jane admitted. " I simply can ' t make up my mind. There ' s a tall, dark-haired man — just like Tyrone Power — and yet, well, there ' s another, a bald man who ' s no slouch. If he only had a toupee — " Jane was lost in reverie. A studious magazine entitled Economics Today lay on a table, and I flipped through its pages. A picture of Miranda Randall headed an article called " White House Econ- omist Warns Democracy, " and reading on, I found " Mir " was practically running the government, and had already promised her marvelous brain to the Rockefeller Founda- tion! When I finally left Jane, I descended in an elevator skillfully manned by Jack Ritchie. " Life has its ups and downs " , Jack smiled philosophically, " but I like it here. It ' s just a passing whim of mine, anyway. " There was a jolt, the elevator crashed to the bottom, and when I came to, I was mi- raculously back in the history class. Evident- ly I had fallen asleep, for I was stretched out stiffly on the floor. " Have a nice nap? " Mr. Corkran inquired in ominous tones. MAY DAY [68] LIST OF ADVERTISERS Page A.
