St. Peter while waiting with solemnized grace, Was bound and determined to show them their place. The Juniors were led by a ravishing hound, Whose sole aspirations were heavenly bound. Miss Gilbert said, " children be good at all cost, For we ' ve learned about Heaven from ' Para- dise Lost ' . Our friend Mr. Kittredge has frequently quoted, That good little children are often pro- moted " " Well, Judy, " said Peter, with anger sublime, " At least you have gotten to Heaven on time. Miss Baker, I ' m sure you ' ll find Heaven annoys Without all your canines and Evanston boys. If Henry Esquire would like to appear, He ' ll tell us of culture (the German) and beer. " Back flow: D.

SOPHOMORES [29] FRESHMEN THE FRESHMAN SPEAKS (In the manner of Ogden Nash) The rest of the school seem to think that the Freshman At the bottom of the pile should fit, But we Freshmen think we should be nearer to The top of it. Because although every Sophomore and Junior and Senior May be a go-getter, We secretly feel that when we are Sophomores and Juniors and Seniors, we shall be Infinitely better. And we hold that although they may be a little bit Superior, We are only a little bit Inferior. But if we claim to be almost as good as the Sophomores, It only incites them to scoff-more And if we claim to be just about almost as good as the Junior, We are promptly hushed up in a minute — Or sooner And if we timidly intimate that we are In shouting distance of almost approaching a Senior Back Row: J. Hunt, K. Wolcott, D. Law, K. Cox, S. Adams, J. Wilson, R. Johnson, H. Blackett, F. Copeland, R. Taylor, C. Howard, J. Jameson, P. Sheldon, I. M. Schulze, E. Konsberg. Middle Row: W. Jacobs, J. Berry, F. Bosworth, E. Kuh, J. Lindop, M. Pettibone, A. Wilcox, E. Allen, G. Bingham, J. Sparrow, P. Williams, G. Gordon, D. Holliday, W. Buchen. Front flow: A. Selfridge, C. Burnham, D. Daughaday, P. Evans, N. Brock, H. Shuman, S. Spilz, N. Spring, S. Frank, N. Kostbade, A. Gregory. [30] We are so thoroughly Scoffed and laughed and phawhed That we fell as teeny as ant or a microbe- Or teenier. So even though Sophomore and Juniors and Seniors think That us they are the better than — They should realize that before they can become Sophomores — And Juniors — And Seniors — They had to be Fresh(er)men. FRESHMEN [31] OFF GUARD [32] SPORTS FOOTBALL The 1939 football season was one of the successful in the history of the school. Al- though there were several tie scores, the rec- ords of all the squads show no defeats. The " Undefeated Middleweights, " coached by- Mr. Gleason, retained their title, and the " Heavyweights, " the combined Heavy- weights and Junior Varsity, coached by Mr. Harritt, survived nine games unbeaten. This fine record is very encouraging and an im- portant factor in regard to the outlook for future varsity squads. The 1939 Varsity football squad, cap- tained by Emmett Fallon and ably coached by Mr. Anderson and his assistants, Mr. Wells and Mr. Lambert, went through a six game schedule undefeated. In keeping with the colorful season, this year ' s team wore brilliant purple and white jerseys with matching socks, new this year. Another important feature was the presence of the rousing cheerleaders who led the patriotic spectators in the valuable vocal support they gave the team. The season was climaxed with a football dinner which ex- celled all those of the past in decorations, service, and speeches, and had the added feature of movies of the team in action. At this time it was announced that Larry Bra- shears was elected captain of the 1940 team, and Sonny Miller, team manager. After two weeks of conditioning before school opened and many afternoons of hard scrimmages, the team was prepared to meet its first foe, Todd School in Woodstock. North Shore had over eight veteran letter men on its squad. The game opened with North Shore kicking off, followed by a fum- ble that gave us the ball deep in Todd ter- ritory. Within a short time we had scored. The half ended without another tally. Fear- ing a comeback by Todd, North Shore pushed across another touchdown. VARSITY SQUAD [34] VARSITY SCORES North Shore vs. Todd 20 to North Shore vs. Harvard 7 to North Shore vs. Wheaton 13 to North Shore vs. Milwaukee 7 to 7 North Shore vs. Francis Parker 14 to 6 North Shore vs. Latin 48 to 7 This occurred during the third quarter, following a sixty-yard sprint through the line by Captain Fallon. During the last period the hard running backfield twice drove across the enemy goal, one score being revoked by the referee. The final score was North Shore — 20, Todd — 0. Encouraged by its first success, North Shore went down to Chicago to play Har- vard School the following Saturday. We failed to get under way during the first two periods and found the oppositon stronger than the week before. The half ended with both teams scoreless. North Shore came back strong in the second half FOOTBALL [35] FOOTBALL and continually battered Harvard ' s defense, not scoring, however, until the closing min- utes when Bob Gordon circled left end for the only touchdown. A pass to brother Henry for the extra point made the final score North Shore— 7, Harvard— 0. The following game with Wheaton Aca- demy was played on our field, the first home game. The game was slow during the first quarter. North Shore considerably the stronger, but lacking sufficient drive to score. This was not for long, however, for after halting a Wheaton touchdown march. North Shore got together and put over a score. Another touchdown in the second half made the total score North Shore— 13, Wheaton— 0. Half the season was now over and every game had been a victory. But, the Monday following the Wheaton game marked the beginning of the hardest week of practice of the season. The next game was to be with Milwaukee Country Day, whom we had defeated only once in eight years. It was a beautiful, cool, sunny afternoon as the two teams came out be- fore one of the largest crowds North Shore football has ever seen. The opening plays brought Milwaukee to our one-foot line and the outlook was black for North Shore. However, the team braced up, a fumble gave us the ball, and a punt moved us out of immediate danger. Threatening again, Milwaukee passed, Franny Wilson inter- cepted the ball, and behind fine blocking, chiefly John Wilson ' s diving block of the last threatening man, he streaked ninety- five yards for a touchdown. John Wilson converted for the extra point, ending the half seven to zero in our favor. Milwau- kee came back strong in the second half and scored seven points to tie the score. Both teams got within their opponent ' s twenty-yard line during the following min- utes of the game, but failed to score, each missing a field goal. Held by skillful punting on the part of Bob Gordon and by a hard driving line, Milwaukee did not score a winning point, both teams leav- ing the field with the score tied 7 to 7. The following week-end the team rested and after two weeks met an undefeated Francis Parker eleven. [361 Eager to trounce an undefeated team, North Shore marched over Parker for a victory. It was not without a fight, how- ever and there were signs of a slight let-up on the part of our team. The final score was North Shore — 14, Francis Parker — 6. The final game was played down at Chicago Latin. In the opening plays North Shore showed its superiority when George Green led the charging line and twice brought the Latin ball-carrier down bshind the scrimmage line. North Shore then commenced a series of scores which be- wildered the Latin score-keeper. The scor- ing was accomplished by long passes, straight running plays, and one blocked pass for a safety. Latin scored once dur- ing the beginning of the second half, but was guickly set back by an alert North Shore team. The final score was North Shore— 48, Latin— 7. The 1939 squad was victorious because every man was determined and full of cooperation and school spirit. The credit for its successful season should go to every- one on or connected with the squad. FOOTBALL [37] BASKETBALL This year ' s Varsity basketball team, cap- tained by Henry Gordon, had a very suc- cessful season, winning seven out of eleven games. The Junior Varsity, equally suc- cessful, played nine games, winning seven and losing two. Both the Varsity and the Junior Varsity credited their fine records to the players of two seasons ' experience and to the able coaching of Mr. Harritt. After several practice scrimmages, the season opened at Chicago Latin. The Jun- ior Varsity won easily, 21 to 9. The Var- sity, however, was sluggish and fell far behind in the first half. They never over- came the score set up by an inspired Latin team, although a fourth quarter rally brought the final score to within one point of the adversary ' s; North Shore — 24, Latin —25. The next game was played at home against Todd. The J. V. ' s won eleven to nine in a slow game. Aroused by the first game defeat, North Shore came back and outscored the opponents in a thrilling game, 26 to 23. A strong Harvard team came up to North Shore the same week and by clever passing and maneuvering, defeated the " Purple " 34 to 27. The Junior Varsity added to their string of victories by winning 9 to 6. With defeat fresh in mind, North Shore went to Francis Parker and in a rough game, trounced them 43 to 22. Sadly out- played, the J. V. ' s went down to an 18 to 33 defeat. North Shore next journeyed to Wheaton where they easily scored their third victory. As danger never threatened, the game was less exciting than most; the final score being North Shore— 32, Wheaton— 25. The next Tuesday North Shore played its first night game of the season, when it repeated its earlier season ' s performance by beating Francis Parker 38 to 17. The Junior Varsity had definitely improved over their earlier game with Parker, but they still failed, losing 13 to 15. The following Saturday North Shore rode north to Milwaukee Country Day and, set- ting an early pace, led the " Green and Gold " all the way. The fast breaking team play won for us a 25 to 23 victory. In the second of the two game series with Todd, North Shore was defeated 26 to 3 1 . The Junior Varsity again defeated Todd, this time by a score of 19 to 17. A week ' s pause brought our next victim Latin, to the home gym the following Friday night. The atmosphere was good as the gallery was full. North Shore was sore for vengeance and came through with a forty to eighteen victory. Three of our men were put out on fouls in the closing minutes. The J. V. ' s also won, 22 to 10. A week from that Saturday, we dealt Milwaukee their second defeat. Showing the best team play, scoring and passing accuracy of the year. North Shore took the opponents 28 to 17. The low score was the result of uncontested stalling and wait- ing by North Shore in the opening of the second half when our lead was big. The final game was played down at Harvard. The Junior Varsity won their game 19 to 17 in a close finish. Eager to win, North Shore was definitely out- played by its undefeated opponents. We behind from the start, rallying to within the two points in the second half, but falling behind again to lose 24 to 38. [38] VARSITY SCORES N. S. vs. Latin 24 to 25 40 to 18 N. S. vs. Todd 26 to 23 26 to 31 N. S. vs. Harvard 27 to 34 24 to 38 N. S. vs. Francis Parker 43 to 22 38 to 17 N. S. vs. Wheaton 32 to 25 N. S. vs. Milwaukee 25 to 23 28 to 17 Freethrows, a sore spot last year, were well mastered by the whole team this year, due largely to daily practice. The team tried several new strategems this year. One was the " ball-zone " defense. The other involved routine maneuvers for offense against both " zone " and " man to man " defenses. The result was a trickier ball team. Speed was increased and re- sulted in many baskets from fast breaks. Most of the regulars are graduating this year, but there is a strong Junior Varsity from which to choose our next year ' s squad, and Augie Faulkner has been elected cap- tain of it. BASKETBALL [39] BASEBALL The Monday following the Opera, in the early part of April, thirty-three boys reported for baseball practice. This was an unusual- ly large and encouraging turnout. The squad was coached this year by Mr. Harritt, who introduced some new and useful tricks and outlines. George Green and Bill Wat- kins, as co-captains, led the team through a season of eleven scheduled games. Practice was limited greatly during the first three weeks, due to rain and cold weather. On May first it snowed, cancel- ing a game with the Alumni, and causing the postponement of a game with Francis Parker. The four games that have been played to this date. May ninth, were all played with chilly breezes blowing. The squad, however, utilized all the good prac- tice days in preparing for their opponents. In the opening game with the Alumni on April twentieth, North Shore showed strength due to the experience of the many veterans on the sguad. An eleven run lead, started by a home run by Watkins with two men on base, was run up during the first inning. A change of pitchers on the part of the Alumni in the next inning enabled them to hold the Varsity to two runs during the remainder of the game. The Alumni were allowed only six runs due to the able pitching of Bill Watkins, and, at that, most of these were scored on errors. The final score was North Shore —13, Alumni— 6. The next game was played against the Northbrook nine, who went down under the baffling pitching of Watkins, who struck out most of the opposing players. North Shore ' s " big guns " drove in five runs to out-score the opponent ' s three. On another chilly day North Shore jour- neyed to Latin to deal out the third victory of a promising season. Aided by many Latin errors, North Shore scored three runs in the first five innings, holding the loud Latins scoreless. In the sixth inning several Latin players got on base, and two scored in a rally that was cut short by a strikeout that ended the inning. The last inning was as uneventful as the first five, since no threat endangered North Shore ' s position, and thus the game ended: North Shore— 3, Latin— 2. After a week of bad weather. North Shore resumed its schedule, when Latin came up [+o] here on May eighth to complete the two game series. Supported by heavier hitting, and aided by numerous " walks, " Latin over- came a North Shore first inning three run lead, and went into the front in the fourth inning. North Shore used three pitchers, Bill Watkins, Bob Gordon, and Bill Taylor. A sixth inning rally of two runs climaxed our action for the day. Final score: North Shore— 5, Latin— 12. With a total of three victories out of four games, North Shore has yet to play six games; two with Milwaukee Country Day, two with the Evanston Junior Varsity, and one each with the Alumni and Francis Parker. We realize that all of them will be hard games to win, but with the con- tinual improvement of the team in both hit- ting and fielding, the prospects for many more victories are bright. BASEBALL [41] SPORTS Or , ' B [42] SPORTS [43] HOCKEY VARSITY SECOND TEAM [44] THIRD AND FOURTH TEAMS MIDDLE SCHOOL TEAMS HOCKEY [45] HOCKEY The 1939 hockey season proved very suc- cessful, the Varsity remaining undefeated througout. Games were played with four schools and the North Shore Women ' s team. There were also several non-competitive " play-days " with various schools. Many factors contributed to the success of the teams. Throughout the fall the weather remained perfect. All the girls cooperated well, and everyone had a sin- cere interest in playing well. This year, also, the play periods were lengthened, so that there was more time for practice. Aside from these points we were very fortunate in having an unusually capable captain and manager. Lois Mason, our captain, helped to create the enthusiasm in the girls, and proved an excellent leader. Our manager, Mamie Burnham, also did a note-worthy job of arranging the games. She, too, contributed to the growth of the enthusiasm. These two girls were guided by Mrs. Gleason, who made possible our most successful season. There was practice sponsored by the North Shore Field Hockey Association at Skokie Playfield every Saturday morning for which many people turned out, prov- ing their genuine interest in hockey. This year there were five girls from our school chosen for the North Shore School Girl ' s team. Lois Mason and Weensy Lowrey made the first team, and Betty Mercer, Judy Adams, and Florence Davis made the second team. It was a great honor to have five people chosen from the school. These teams played the Chicago School Girl ' s teams in Jackson Park. The seventh and eighth grade teams also had a successful season. They had two games with Lake Forest Country Day, and one with the Chicago Latin School for Girls. Some of the eighth graders looked very promising for next year ' s teams. Just before Christmas the hockey sea- son came to an end with the Hockey Ban- guet. This was a grand affair at which next year ' s captain and manager were an- nounced. They were Cherry Boyd and Judy Adams respectively. The banquet concluded with the Seniors wishing next year ' s teams all possible success.

This is the first time in many years that the girls have had a full basketball schedule. In addition to the group that signed up for general bas- ketball there was a large group that signed up for Varsity basketball. Last year the only game played was against Roycemore, but this year the girls renewed acguain- tanceship with the Girls ' Latin School and Kemper Hall. There was serious practice every day and there was sincere interest in the game shown by all who participated in it. The three games played with other schools were all away from home. When the girls went to Kemper Hall, they went by bus and went early enough to have luncheon and to visit the school before the games. These games were very successful, the scores being: first team, Kemper Hall — 26, North Shore — 40; second team, Kem- per Hall— 28, North Shore— 42; third team, Kemper Hall— 18, North Shore— 23. The games with Roycemore were very interesting to watch, with intelligent playing on the part of all teams. The first teams were very evenly matched, the score being a tie at 22 to 22. Our second team out- played that of Roycemore to the tune of 35 to 13. The games with Latin School were also good games to watch, and there was a large turn-out of on-lookers. The scores in these games were as follows: first team, Latin School— 26, North Shore — 20; second team, Latin School— 31, North Shore — 24. The season was a very successful one as may be seen by the total score. North Shore scored 206 points to their adver- saries ' 164. Inter-class games were played as a wind- up to the season. The Seniors proved cham- pions of the series with the Sophomores run- ning a close second. The Seniors scored 23 points against the Sophomores ' 8. In their game with the Freshmen the Seniors defeated the underclassmen 22 to 12. The Sophomores defeated the Juniors and Fresh- men 16 to 5 and 24 to 19 respectively. The Freshmen were pushed into last place by the Juniors who beat them 18 to 12. Two exciting games were played against the boys basketball team, the scores being: first team, boys — 33, girls — 4; second team, boys — 26, girls — 2. It is felt that the girls have staged an excellent comeback this year, and have re- made basketball an important part of the athletic program. Mrs. Gleason has con- tributed much to the enthusiasm of the girls, and Captain Conway is to be congratulated on her able leadership. Many good players will be lost when the Seniors graduate, but the Sophomores have a fine chance to make a name for themselves. [48] ACTIVITIES MIRROR The 1940 Mirror tells its story throughout this book. Those of you who are ardent col- lectors of successive Mirrors, will perhaps notice that there are several new features in this book. One innovation, of which we are particularly proud, is that of having a candid shot to accompany each senior pic- ture. Our purpose in doing this was to give a more thorough picture of what every Sen- ior is really like. We have caught each Senior both as he looks to us and as he thinks he looks. The second new feature is a calendar of outstanding senior activi- ties, taking the place of the stolid class prophesy of previous years. We also thought it a good plan to put the lower and middle schools in a separate division, instead of scattering them helter-skelter throughout the book. In choosing a cover for our book, we decided to use the North Shore colors, which have never before been displayed on the cover of the Mirror. A good staff is essential in order to make any venture of this type a success. We were especially fortunate in having a competent advertising staff. This department never receives one-half the credit it deserves. Without it, no budget could possibly be balanced. Our subscription manager, Bill Benoist, did a one-man job and did it well. Due to the fact that the number of cam- era fiends seems to have depreciated this year, the photographic board was forced to take the majority of the pictures. Especial credit is due to Morry Wilson, who cov- ered the entire lower and middle schools. Nothing need be said about the work of the editors. One needed only to see their emaciated frames and haggard faces during the trying weeks before deadline. Following the policy of every staff, we have endeavored to make our book an im- provement over previous years. We feel that our efforts have not been in vain, and hope that the readers of this book will share our opinion. [50] The Purple and White is now legally of age, having been in existence for twenty-one years. During its twenty-first season, the " Purp " has made progress along certain lines. The " Purp " has had a larger number of regular contributors than formerly. The organization has been similar to that estab- lished by Peter Dammann and continued under Joe Eliot and Peggy Boyd; that is to say, a weekly paper published by a large staff. This year the " Purp " has had an Editor-in-Chief and a Managing Editor, in- stead of co-editors as last year. The va- rious branches of the " Purp " cooperated, and everyone who worked on the staff gained valuable experience. As an experiment, we tried printing one issue of the " Purp " by a new method, the offset process. We ran into difficulty, and did not have time to untangle the details, so the " Purp " did not continue in the new manner. Those who worked on the new process hope, however, that their successors will have an opportunity to benefit by their experiment. In the year 1939-1940 the " Purp " ap- peared about twenty times. The " Purp " was published through the efforts of a larger staff, with more freshman participa- tion. Several eight page issues were print- ed, and our Christmas issue, printed in red ink, was especially successful. Much to the joy of all concerned, this year ' s " Purp " succeeded in balancing its budget. The staff feels that it has improved the content of the " Purp " and that, more important, it has learned something from its work. PURPLE AND WHITE [51] STUDENT GOVERNMENT The Student Government during the past year has functioned under a new system which takes the power of voting out of the Town Meeting ' s hands and gives it to the student council. This plan was inaugurated last year in order to eliminate a great deal of red tape and to abolish the useless dis- cussion that occurred in the Town Meetings of previous years. In order for the govern- ment to function with the minimum amount of friction, it seemed necessary to have a council which could hold intelligent and efficient meetings. The provision for three delegates-at-large in addition to the regu- lar class council members and the council officers, provided a compact body which, throughout the school year, has accom- plished a great deal of legislation in a manner that, so far, has been quite satis- factory. The Town Meetings, which are called whenever the assembly is obliged to pass financial reports or to elect new officers, have functioned in the usual lackadazical manner, but there has been a noticeable improvement in the discussion that has been forthcoming. However, the assembly continues to discuss the various measures passed by the council so that the student government is a democratic organization. On the whole the new system has worked fairly well, its only fault being that it is too sketchy in determining the powers of va- rious officials and committees. However, by the addition of several amendments the con- stitution will, in time, become a firm foun- dation for a workable and efficient school government. [52] The Orchestra under the able leadership of Mr. Duff has accomplished a great deal this year. They have performed before the school over four times this year, and each time have done an excellent job when one takes into consideration that it is an outside activity to which only a limited amount of time can be given for preparation. During the past few years the Orchestra has slowly dwindled until it appeared as if it might become extinct. Its future looks brighter now, however, since it has gained new members recently, most of whom come from the lower classes, and whom the Orchestra may depend upon for the next few years. These new additions to the Orchestra may stimulate further interest in an activity of this type. We do not mean to intimate that all the members of our Orchestra are new- comers, but that this interest among the lower classmen seems to indicate a renais- sance in the most neglected art at North Shore. This year ' s Orchestra made its debut at a concert given in November. Those of us who were present listened attentively to two pieces by Gluck, " The Dance of the Spirits " from " Orpheus and Eurydice " , and " Mu- sette " from " Amide " . The next number " The Old Bachelor Suite " by Purcell was received by the audience with egual at- tention. Their next performance was behind stage during the Christmas Play, when they ac- companied the " heavenly " choir and helped to sustain the ethereal atmosphere. The Orchestra ' s greatest single exhibi- tion is during the Opera, when they accom- pany both leads and chorus throughout the comedy. Every member must be on his toes all the time in order that he may catch Mr. Duff ' s signals to cover up any poor en- trances or faux-pas on the part of the cast. Much credit must be given to the number of outsiders who came to the aid of the Or- chestra during the Opera. On May Day the Orchestra was sched- uled to play three dances from " Nell Gwyn " by German in the auditorium, before the classes adjourned to dance on the Green. As usual the Orchestra played a lively ac- companiment to the dancing feet. Commencement day saw the end of a successful year for the Orchestra. Their program for the day consisted of the " Fes- tival March " by Weber, the " Festival March " by Mendelssohn, and the accompa- niment of the chorus in the " Hymn of Gratitude " by Hayden, " Land Sighting " by Grieg, " How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place " by Brahms, and " Turn Back, O! Man " by Holso. ORCHESTRA [53] OPERA " The Pirates of Penzance " or " The Slave of Duty " was chosen as this year ' s Gilbert and Sullivan opera because Frederick, the hero of the tale, was to have come of age in 1940. The story is that of a typical young Englishman of the nineteenth century, who, due to his nurse ' s error, was apprenticed to a pirate instead of to a pilot. Frederick the young pirate, was to be free of his inden- tures on his twenty-first birthday, but his murderous companions discovered that he was born on leap year and, singularly enough, would not come of age, as we have already said, until 1940. Frederick ' s sense of duty bound him in honor to the com- patriots of the Jolly Roger, and therein lies the tale. Miss Bacon designed all the costumes, which included the sketching of approxi- mately eighty dresses. There were no two identical costumes in the girls ' chorus. All the costumes were perfected by the many mothers who make up the costume commit- tee, which every year helps to make our production as professional as possible. The hats were painstakingly planned and made [54] by the mothers, who worked overtime so that every girl might be satisfied. The costumes were copied after those of the period around 1840. General Stanley ' s forty daughters were colorfully attired in voluminous skirts held out by hoops which were made by some enterprising Sophomore and Junior boys. The constabularly force wore navy blue cork helmets characteristic of the London bobbies, while the pirates went about in ragged canvas trousers and multi-colored sashes. Some of Frederick ' s fiercer companions sported black patches over their eyes, and all carried savage look- ing cutlasses. The intricate dance steps executed by the general ' s battery of daughters were directed by Mrs. Gleason. She also did a great deal of work in teaching the whole chorus expres- sive actions with the result that there was hardly a dead-pan to be seen in either per- formance. Under the able direction of Miss Rad- cliffe the Freshman girls were taught the art of theatrical make-up. They became guite accomplished in their trade and added greatly to the general effect of the chorus. Mr. Smith, Mr. Duff, and Miss Radcliffe all entered into the spirit of the production with their usual guiding suggestions and criticisms. We all felt that we knew them and each other better after this experience. The orchestra, under the able direction of Mr. Duff and composed largely of mem- bers of our school, played admirably. What poor attacks there were, were covered up by the ingenuity of the entire orchestra. The stage crew was put to it to equal the efficiency of the other committees, but it handled its job so beautfilully that every- thing ran like clock-work, in fact, scenes were changed in record time. The photography committee was even more successful this year than last. Color pictures were taken which fell together in sequence making a story, rather than the usual unconnected panoramas and views. The funds for this venture were appropriat- ed from the profits of the production, and naturally will be kept for future reference in the school ' s files. Not only was there a large amount of photography going on dur- ing rehearsals, but also some recording of the choral and solo parts took place. It is feared, however, that this adventure in sound was not too successful due to the fact that at inopportune moments certain extraneous comments and discords reached the microphone and spoiled the general effect. Despite the fact that several other schools gave the same opera, and that some per- formances coincided with ours, both nights boasted a good attendance. This opera was thought to be one of the best that the school has presented in many years, and we can only hope that future operas will live up to this record. OPERA [55] SENIOR PLAY The Seniors presented " Berkeley Square " , by John L. Balderston, on the nights of May 3rd and 4th. The play deals with the mystic and the supernatural. It is the story of a modern young American, Peter Standish, who goes to London to live in an old house which he has inherited. He hates the hustle and bustle of the modern world, and wishes that he could change places with someone back in the eighteenth century. After study- ing many old papers, especially the diary of another Peter Standish, who lived in the eighteenth century, he becomes obsessed with the idea of " changing places " . It seemed so logical to him; the other Peter had lived in the same house, and his por- trait by Reynolds, which hung in the living room, bore a striking resemblance to the modern Peter; the complete knowledge of the diary would be his passport into the other world. Peter ' s experiences in the past are treated as fact, not as a strange dream. His rela- tionship with the people of the past consti- tutes the greater part of the play. Two of the scenes take place in modern times; one just before he goes, and the other just after he has come back. The blunders which Peter makes in that old world furnish most of the humor of the play. They also create many tense mo- ments. The most tragic aspect of the play is that Peter falls in love with his betrothed ' s sister. Their struggle for happiness in spite of the fact that fate and nature are against them gives the lovers and also the entire cast an opportunity for fine acting. Nearly every emotion enters the play in some char- acter, from the stark terror displayed by some of the actors to the tender understand- ing and sorrow of the heroine. " Berkeley Square " is a play which in- deed offers problems to the most experi- enced actors. We tried to have everyone interested become thoroughly acquainted with the play and its significance, in order that the actors might be able to give a real interpretation to their parts. We can rightly call this year ' s perform- ance a real Senior play, because the whole class took part in the production in some way, however small. Extensive work was done on costumes and scenery, because we realized the importance of maintaining the illusion in a play of this type. The cast is particularly grateful to Miss Radcliffe and to Mr. Smith for their assist- ance and coaching. [56] VAUDEVILLE If you like a good laugh, I hope you were at the Vaudeville last November. It proved to be a successful performance, if we may judge by the enthusiasm of our audience. No waiting, and never a dull moment. That very able pair of comedians, Mr. Duff and Bob Wilcox, occupied the fleeting seconds while our lightening stage crew worked behind scenes. Carter Bacon put on a magic show that stumped the experts. The spiritual singing of the Senior girls sounded professional, while the boys of the same class bespattered our screaming visitors with eggshells. The faculty ' s illustrated rendition of " The Little Girl in Blue " climaxed the show and left our audience in a complete state of col- lapse, from which they speedily recovered in order that they might enjoy the dance given for the school by the Sophomore class. The able direction of Judy Adams and Brad Macy was evident in the final per- formance. CHRISTMAS PLAY Last Christmas the Freshmen put on an excellent dramatization of the " Coming of Christ, " by John Masefield. It was, perhaps, one of the most symbollic Christmas plays ever to be presented on our stage. The story of the play is not irregular. However, the speeches and actions are such that the play is almost allegorical. King Herod might easily be taken for the ruler of any modern totalitarian state. The shepherds represent the common people, while the three magii individually exemplify the types of great men and leaders, since one is a great thinker, one a merchant, and the other a fighter of many wars. The symbolical idea was also carried out in the scenery. Most of the action took place on a semi-circular raised platform, representing the earth. The set was very simple, most of the effects being achieved through lighting. The musical background of the " Heavenly " choir contributed to the religious spirit of the production. JUNIOR PLAYS This year, in place of the traditional full length play that is usually given, the Junior class decided to give a series of one-act plays. After much investigation, five plays of this sort were finally selected; " The Passing of Chow-chow " , by Elmer Rice; " A Dull Evening " , by Ray Holcombe; " The Drums of Oude " , by Austin Strong; " Opera Matinee " , by Alice Gerstenberg; and " Quare Medicine " , by Paul Green. Every member of the class had a part in at least one of the plays. They were presented on the night of February 17th to a receptive audience of North Shore students and friends. The proceeds were put into a class fund to help cover the expenses of the Junior Prom and those of next year ' s activities. The per- formance was so admirably presented and attended that the venture of the Junior class turned out to be highly successful, and one that was very much appreciated by all who saw it. [57] MAY DAY [60] LOWER and MIDDLE SCHOOL EIGHTH GRADE The eighth grade did many interesting things this year. We studied the source of our food supply and different methods of production and transportation on land and sea. In October a bus full of us went down to the South Water Street Market. We took notes and spoke to the salesmen and saw the cars of food as they came in. A few days later the whole Middle School, includ- ing the teachers, acted out the trip in Morning Exercise. The acting was done not only on the stage, but all over the auditor- ium. Later we went several times to the Dick ' s farm. We husked corn, cleaned the barn, fed the turkeys, threw down feed from the silo, rolled up barbed wire fence, col- lected eggs, prepared the lunch, and washed the dishes. This was the beginning of an experiment to find out if we could do a good day ' s work from a farmer ' s point of view and also get our school work done. We gave the following plays this year: " A Night at an Inn, " " Spreading the News, " " Abe Lincoln in Illinois " , and two Sherlock Holmes plays. Back flow: N. Anderson, V. Bensinger, M. Turner, T. McNabb, M. Hosier, W. Gale, W. Rollins, M. Loyd, S. Craft, B. Butler. Middie flow: B. McNabb, S. Mason, M. S. Galloway, D. Curtis, R. Brittenham, J. Ringling, B. Burnett, A. Butz, N. Dick.

[62] We went to see " Abe Lincoln in Illinois " , starring Raymond Massey. After the play we went back stage to see how the scenery was worked, and had our program s auto- graphed. One of the parents said that he would give us indirect lighting fixtures if we would put them up. We thought it would be a good thing to study lighting. We took readings with a light meter in different parts of the room, and we experimented to find out the best height for the fixtures and the best color for the ceiling. We repainted the ceil- ing and made scale drawings showing the distribution of light on the desks, charts showing reflection factors, and cartoons ad- vertising good lighting. One of the boys made a booth to test the light that people liked to read by. Our toy shop was a big success this year. We made and handed in designs to a com- mittee who picked the best, from which samples were made and tested. We made a lot of horses, boats, rag dolls, and games.

SEVENTH GRADE [65] SIXTH GRADE From the beginning of the year until a little before Christmas we studied water, and then we went down to the Winnetka water works and saw how they pump and purify water. Next we studied Abraham Lincoln and went to see t he play " Abe Lin- coln in Illinois " with Raymond Massey as Lincoln. In about the middle of the year we studied Mexico and continued it for guite a while. One of the ways we studied it was seeing movies. In our room we have a table on which we have a collection of Mexican things. Also in our room we have a board which we call " Interesting Things " . Whenever anybody finds something inter- esting and feels energetic, he brings it to school and puts it on the board of interest- ing things. One of the main classes that we have is cooking. Because we have such a big class, we have to divide it into two groups — group one and group two. On Monday group one has cooking and on Thursday group two has cooking. We have all had a good time in the sixth grade, but we can ' t wait till vacation. Standing: A. Swetser, M. Taylor, D. Keller, S. Burrows, N. Pilling, W. Carroll, L. Hull, D. M. Gregory, J.

Rediield, P. Mayer, G. Garard, J. Mayer, B. Bradstreet, B. Perlstein, R. Von Wening. Sitting: M. Marsh, T. Glaser, V. Daughaday. Absent: F. Dumbaugh, B. Barber. This year we had a store. Mr. Bollinger helped us make it. We sell all kinds of writ- ing material and supplies. We sell candy- bars and raisins. We sell tropical fish called guppies too. We have had lots of fun with the store. With the money we get we are going to buy a clock. It is fun to look at the fish and snails in our pool. On the bottom there is some sand; then there is some green growth where the fish play hide and seek. When you put the food in, they all come up at once. Sometimes they bump into the glass. The little fish hide in the green growth. If they did not, the big fish would eat them. We have a library too. This is how we take out books. There is a librarian and a clerk. The librarian writes down the per- son ' s name and the date due on the card in the book. Then the librarian takes the card and the reader the book. When the librarian ' s term is over, the clerk steps in. So far we have not lost a book. Some of the children take cooking. They have made all sorts of things. One time they made cookies for the store to sell. FIFTH GRADE [67] FOURTH GRADE At the beginning of the year we studied about bees. We used to like to see the bees fly in and out of the hive. The bees made a lot of honey and we sold it. With the money we bought a clock. Our clock tells perfect time and we love it very much. At Christmas our parents gave us a chime. It has a very pretty sound. We use it to make us be quiet and to tell us when to go to different classes. For about three or four months we studied about Indians. We learned about the dif- ferent tribes and what part of the country they lived in. We learned how they lived. We also learned about the animals that live in the West; especially the buffalo. We learned how to read Indian picture writ- ing. We made some sand paintings. We gave a play that told what happened to the Indians when the white man killed the buffalo. We made drums, masks, and cos- tumes for our play. We painted forty feet of mountains for scenery. This year we also studied maps. We had lots of fun. We had partners to work on the maps. We studied the states of the United States and the names of the countries of the world. Standing: S. Freiler, S. Smith, P. Keim, J. Smith, S. Smith, K. Hull. Sitting: J. Anderson, S. Burnett, J.

Spiegel, M. Pick, B. Misch, W. Clore, J. Harris, G. Booth, F, Boal, A. Garland, S. Searle. Absent: J. Miller, M. Blecker, H. Corkran, J. Davis. This year we studied the Grade Separa- tion Project. The tracks will be finished in 1940. We go to the tracks almost every nice day. We like to watch the men work. They tell us about everything. We took a ride on the first North Shore train that ran in the cut-out. We took the fourth grade with us. We decided we would take a ride on the first northbound train. We started at Indian Hill and rode to Glencoe. The cut-out is very deep at Elm Street. The road bed is very good. The train went smoothly. We are lucky to have a train at Willow Street. We know Mr. Farrell. He is the engineer. We know Frank. He is the fireman. We know Mr. Dougherty. He is the watchman. They let us climb up in the engine and they tell us everything we want to know. Mr. Dougherty let steam out of the safety valves and he gave us a little ride. Safety valves are so the boiler won ' t blow up. Mr. Far- rell let the sand drip down the pipe near the big wheels. Riddles What does an engine have that people wear? — shoes. What does an engine have that houses have? — curtains. What does an engine have that cooks wear? — apron. What does an engine have that jumps? — frogs. What does an engine have that baseball players get into? — hot box. THIRD GRADE [69} SECOND GRADE We are studying about Hopi and Navajo Indians. They live in the southwest part of our country. The Hopi Indians live up on the mesa. A mesa is a flat-topped moun- tain. Mesa is the Spanish word for table. The Navajo Indians live down on the desert. The Hopi Indians live in pueblos. Pueblos are like apartment houses. They have lad- ders to get from one story to the others. They are made out of adobe. Adobe is a kind of clay. The Navajo Indians live in hogans. They are made out of mud and sticks. They are shaped like a bee hive. These Indians make many pretty things. They weave blankets, rugs, belts, and many other things too. They make jewelry with silver and turguoise. They make baskets with lovely designs on them. They make all kinds of beautiful pottery. We have been weaving little rugs. We made our looms in the shop. We are not making designs, but we make pretty pat- terns with stripes. We are making a pueblo. We are mak- ing it out of orange crates. We are making it big enough to play in. Sfcmding: C. Pope, D. Duff, C. Winns, M. Hosier, A. McDevitt, L. Perlstein, J. Garard. Sitting: R. Ott, W. Barnes, N. Burch, F. Shepard, J. Driscoll, N. Jones. Absent: C. Shaw, B. Burnett. [70] Standing: R. Ott, A. Murray, J. Glaser, F. Blunt, D. Booth, J. Fletcher. Sitting: L. Sherman, R. Hechler, A. Uhlemann. Absent: J. Moller, A. Lawrence, M. Glaser. This fall we had a Hallowe ' en party. We invited the second grade. We all wore cos- tumes. At Christmas time we made stock- ings. We filled them with toys for the poor children. We gave a Christmas play in lower school morning exercise. We also gave a Queen of Hearts play at the Valen- tine Party. Leslie Sherman had a sleigh- ride party. We went all around the country. We have lots of plants in our room. We have two turtles. We had a salamander, but it died. Jimmy Fletcher brought his fish to school. They are very pretty. We have two rabbits. One is white. Her name is Snowball. The other is black. We call him Frisky. We hope to have baby bunnies. In our room we build with big blocks. We play with clay and work with wood. We have gone on several trips this year. Soon after school began we walked to the beach. We gathered shells, stones, and glass. We went to a farm. We saw lots of animals. We rode on a white horse. Her name was May Queen. We are going to visit the fire station, the train station, a grocery store, and the post office. We have had lots of fun this year. We have written stories about all the things we have done. FIRST GRADE [71] KINDERGARTEN Christmas in the Kindergarten — We made long strings of pop-corn, cranberries, and straws to decorate our Christmas tree. We pasted green paper onto a card- board ring for a wreath. We put red paper on it too, for the holly berries. We made glasses of cranberry jelly and wrapped them up in white paper, and pasted picture of Santa Claus on them. We took these home to give to our Mothers and Daddies. Jo-Jo Blecker brought candy sticks to put on our Christmas tree. Easter — We brought eggs from home. We cooked them and then dyed them many colors. We made paper baskets with han- dles so that we could carry them home. We made sugar cookies in the shape of rabbits and chickens. We sprinkled green sugar on top and baked them in the oven. Animals That We Have — We have two new white rats. One of them is all white and the other is white with some black spots. Their names are Ratty and Tatty. We feed them every day. They like let- tuce, carrots, bread, and milk. They always eat their lettuce first. Because they like lettuce so well, we have decided to plant some of it in our garden. Then we will be able to pick it for them every day. (dictated by the Kindergarten) Back Row: M. Royer, E. Hull, G. Pritchard, J. Smith, T. Hales, B. Moore, R. Wehr. Front Row: W. Gorham. T. Pabst, J.

" And since Mouse can sing, he soon will acquire A voice that can rate with the " Heavenly Choir " . Friend Pam, I have heard of your marvel- ous mice , (If they ' ve multiplied once, then thy ' ve mul- tiplied thrice). And also Friend Auggie, who thinks with his height, That he can touch Heaven just standing upright. They say Mr. Flannery ' s guite on the ball With his true " I-rrish " blood and his slight western drawl. And Polly, they say that your " Home, Sweet Home " , Is just an abode where you telephone. In plays, June Goodman, you ' re really a riot, And please prescribe to the angels, your diet. Since Nancy forever endeavors to learn, We ' d better convert her into a bookworm. How often I ' ve heard of Hilarious Howe, Whose shirts (red and orange) are really a wow! And Peggy, who laughs till she ' s blue in the face, Ought to find Heaven a jolly, good place! Esther possesses great verbal perfection. " It ' s always a help in a U. S. election. " And Andy, who ' s full of brains and all knowledge, Had better, our heavenly virtues, acknowl- edge. Dear Jack, your heavenly dreams have to cease; You ' d better reverse them — here come the police! Well, here ' s Kim Kostbade — what a joke — Riding up here on a cloud of smoke! Brad came on foot, at least so I hear. Since " for a change " his car ' s out of gear. " Rah-dee-da-da-hi-dee-hi-dee- " here comes Sonny, His " five o ' clock shadow " is really a honey! I hear McCullough ' s a one-man band, So blow out Gabriel — give him a hand! Lake Forest academy lads she inspires, Thank Heaven; there aren ' t many dimples like Shire ' s Next Stafford and Stern, the inseparable pair, ' Though one ' s near the ground, the other in air. The " Blue Lagoon ' s " waiting for competent Wake, It ' s certain all trophies for sailing she ' ll take. Art, since you ' ve one of the best disposi- tions, Then Heaven ' s the place to fulfill your am- bitions. " She floats through the air with the greatest of ease " , " Sue Warner ' s " the name — she likes funnies and trees! An open coupe, with the wind in her hair, Makes Jane a fiend for the good old fresh air! " ' Twas the day set for Judgment — (I said that before) — St. Peter reflected a few minutes more. At last, with precision and manner divine, He said, " O. K. Juniors, I ' ve made up my mind " . " Your ' e a terrible bunch, and your poetry ' s awful, I might further add, that up here, it ' s un- lawful. But you gave a Prom that was literally swell, So go on to Heaven — forget about H !
