"Tillie" is a slight little maid with a wealth of shining blonde hair. She is re- nowned for her famous playing on the harp She is one of the brightest of the class and is a very conscientious student. She has X spoken in public at the Freshmen-Sopho ' more debate and again gave a reading at ' the 1923 Inter-Class Debate. As an S. B. A. member she will be sorely missed for no one was more dependable than Leonore. Al though not of an athletic nature she is a Basket Ball enthusiast. Don't ask why' Leonore with Garrett and Lillian are the K 4-lass musicians and often travel together We would not be surprised to see them 1 together in a Lyceum Course. GARRETT B. CONOVER Academic II "Cary,"t . Four years ago among the class of '23 was a small boy by the name of Garrett Conover. He was destined to become fam- ous by his musical abilities both vocal and on the violin. His appearanee bespeaks of a master and we know he will some day be one. He took the music 1-ourse for the four years and received mu-eh benefit from it. I-Ie had important parts in operettas and the plot of the Senior play "Step- l.ively" centered about him. He was Class President in our Junior year. At present he is direeting a SY11l1'lll01lX' Orcfliestra and has rendered a convert which was a sue- cess. I-Ie was alternate for the Juniors in' the '22 Inter-Class' Debate and an Oratorical Pontest speaker. Garrett always lends the Class a helping: hand when it is in a pine-li. XVe expel-t "Cary" to fiddle his way tlirongli life as he fiddles his violin.

This golden haired lass seems to be very quiet, but you should hear her recite i11 Prolmlenis of 1J01ll0I'1'i1Cj' class, In her we can readily recognize the nmxinx "Still walter runs deep". Mildred's favorite pus- time is going to the movies. She is 2l1VVi1YS cheerful and ready to help others. As an S. B. A. member she is very active and faithfully takes her pnrt in all work. Some day we hope to hear that she is employed as il Sf0llOg1'21ph91' for some business con- cern. For you then, dear elnssniate, we wish :1 prosperous future. LOUIS E. GLASS Comnlereial . 4'Lou-ie." Tl1.cre's sure some style to Louis Glass, A promi-n.eut member of the Senior Class. This innocent looking chap is the most persistent nrguer in the class. Why? I-Ie never gives in, even if he knows he is wrong. He is a fellow liked by all members of the class and always ready to help ai fel- low out f?J especially in il Typewriting test. Shiek does not let his looks interfere with his sm-hool work, and positively refuses to have anything to do with the girls. Louis expects to become a nmn of fame in the fll131ll'lZl1 world and he will if he still has the pep he had in "Step Lively." ABIPTENNIAN, '23 Twentj RUTH ABIGAIL YUUNG C01Il1ll9I'lTlIl1 Ruth, Until her lust yeur in High SL-hool Ruth lived in the 1,1eigl1llo1'ho0d of Stone Church. Kreiglersville, but her parents had pityupon her :md moved to NO1'l'hillll1ltOll, thus re- lieving ,her long and tiresome walk. She usually wgllked, but oceasioinnlly she rode. und the iirst time she 0111118 along in her 1md's Dodge we all salt up and molg notice. One niight think Ruth wus il quiet and slow girl, but youll be surprised to see how she climbed those hills to Stone Cl1Ill'L'l1. She has taken the COIll1llQl'l'lll1 Course, and has been sue:-essful in getting :1 medal for speed in typing. i'Speed" is l1er middle name. She is also very fond of inusie, so whatever she does we are sure will be gi sm,-eess.

He was one of the players .on the Glass team of 1923. "Cutie" enjoys walking in the country, espe:-izxlly f0Vl'2ll'llS fTrein-lilers. He takes friends along for -l'01ll1l1llly until he arrives nenr his destina- tion, and then proceeds to lenve his friends in the lurehg lets them freeze while he is elsewhere. "Cutie" is very suseeptihle to toothuche VLH but we susper-t that nmny of his leaves of absence are due to his pres- enre with the Hockey Brigade :lt "Willeys", especinlly when fl shorth:u1d or typewriting 'test is scheduled. Une of "C!utie'iH" pet :un- hitions is to hit the ties and eventually arrive nt Hollywood. We xnuy yet see "Cutie's" physiognoiny on the sc-lieen.

She is very dependable and is the Business'Manager of the Ampten- liian. She never even notices that there is a male sex in the world. She chums with the almnni and also is found at tl1e vliurc-li with Erma. Sc-otch is very business like in her IIIIDBSIYIIIICG and conduct. She has been an active nneniber of the S. B. A. for four years and jumped center for the class team. She sings a deep alto and blossomed out quite famously as "Togo" in "Cl18l'l'Y Blossoms." Scotch is going to keep, ou blossoming. VICTOR THOMAS' RUTH Y Commerc-ial ffvw 'No boasting like Cb fool, This deed FZZ do before the purpose cools" Behold the coimnanding and important hearing of our class president. whose eareer as a Student is very ac-tive. During his first year he was one of the quiet members of the 4-lass but this did not last throughout the four years. lVe do not know of the affairs of his heart, but we do know that many a sigh is heaved for a nieniher of the fair sex of 1925. When he works he says little but does inueh. He has been our Class President, a lneniher of the l+ldito1'ia1 Staff, Inter-Class Debator. and winner of second prize in the Oratorieal Contest. He is :1 hard worker for the class and the school, and we appreciate his endeavors.

CHERINGTON WOLF General "E'd'1,0itze", "If mmbody care for me, I"Il crore for 1m.cbody." Behold this fair maiden, Edith N. C., the tolnboy of the class. Once she thought her- self to be most digniiied. but she has iinished all that, having bobbed her hair. and her dignity with it. She is an athlete through and through, playing a good game of tennis, being ll member of the Varsity Squad oi' B. B. for three years and the star athlete in the Field Day events 1922 after winning iirst prize in four out of five events. She pulls a good line illld often bluffs. She even bluffed the judges at the Oratorical Contest to give her a ten dollar gold pie:-e. and the judges at inter-Class Debate in '22 to give her side the derision. In '23 the debators had her for rebuttal and she almost vol- lapsed while giving it. Shes so xveak?? She had iinportant parts in both Operetta and Class Play this yearand in Operettas ill former years. Although she is a pest and a tease, she is a hard worker for the 4-lass,having vharge of most of the Senior Candy. "NVoltie" is the Editor-in-chief oi' the Aniptennian and works so hard that she can't bother with the male sex. All in all you can trust her to do anything for you. Let's hope she and "Josie" will have four happy years at Hood, where they intend to go. GEORGE G. HAHN Jn.

A very quiet and sleepy looking boy, he 'seems to be, nevertheless when the other boys get after him he can certainly furnish them with entertainment. Georges great- est: pastime is to make the Typewriter sing, anywhere from fifty to sixty words a min- ute. He is a fairly stndions chap, loves his teachers and all that. Some day we expect to see the advertisement "George Hahn's Dept. Store" or some other business estab- Iishment.

Until this year Ruth was one of our et,nu1u'ry maidens and as fi ner usual was very quiet. Then suddenly fi gust of wind blew her into town and likewise stirred up her spirits. Now she is one of the noisies-t in the class. Ruth takes things as they mine and does not worry about the out-- eouie. She is ai nieinlmer of the Latin 'l'iio and an active worlier in Geo1netry???? Ruth is one of the few in our c-lass that has a surplus amount of elass spirit. Allho not taking part very often in the aftfairs, she l' is always ready' to lend a hand. As yet Ruth doeys not know definitely what she intends to do when she leaves S hool but we have our suS1nleions, for she f'arried her part in the Senior play with a manner that indicated hidden talents in aeting.

This bright, rosy-1-heeked, little fellow c-omes from Howertown. I-Ie was rather fortunate. as the cement pike made it a pleasure for him to ride to svhool in his flivver. George thinks a lot but says little- in other words quiet, but, Oh My! He was very shy in his Freshman year, but sinre then he has changed a good bit. Although net the brightest ill the L-lass, George knows scimltitic' fa1'1x1i11g and also how to water the milk. By the trio, he was for a long time renowned as a hero in room 18. He showed his spirit, in taking part in Basket- ball Teams and on Field Day, and says he still has a lot of spirit left. George intends to be:-ome a l'll0C'hil1llC and the whole class wishes him suceess. AMPTENNIAN, '23 ' ERMA RUTH MILLER Hello! Bobby !-Erma of the 'sparkling eyes and ebony hair. Give her a man to talk to and she will be satistied. She's some slim-k talker and won second prize in the orator- ical contest by saying '5Y0ll,1'G a ripper, you are". Besides she is the swellest dresser of the class and belongs to the Inseparable Three. Erma is a very good actress too. "Martha" in "Step Lively" was some de- mure, little maiden-not so? Erma's favor- ite haunt is church and we c-au't blame her --so mm-11. She is one of the gang that makes life hard for the luncheon room g.rnard.ians. Erma has taken the l'0ll'll'IlGl'i'i2l1 1-nurse and is quite a wizard at the keys. Twcnfy Stix H. JOSEPHINE KOPENHAVER Academic I "Josie" f'Those true eyes Too pure and too honest in aught to disguise ' The sweet soul shining through them" This modest young lady came to us from Gherryville four years ago. But not until her Junior year did someintluence radiating from the upper class so completely change her that it became a pleasure to come to school and the monotony of riding on a train slowly disappeared. Josephine is one of the brightest girls in the class. She is the linguist of the classy her future is replete with bright possibilities. She has been a very faithful and obedient student. While her favorite studies are the languages she has struggled and persevered through mathematics with a tenacity which was admirable. Aside from her studies her chief occupation is watching for the mail man a11d cultivating her garden. She has been as successful a gardner as a student. Josie raised onions as big as apples and 1-ultivated flowers as fragrant as the most expensive perfume. Josephine is going to Hood College with Edith Where she will be a, shining light and from which college we are sure will be graduated with honors. The class of 1923 wishes her a bright future and will not be surprised to see her as a professor i11 one of the large colleges of the coun try. GEORGE CARON RIZNER Academic I Wlclcief' "lc-kie" is one of the best stand-lays of the class. Although he left us for Connecticut in his second year he returned again in 1922. He says he cou1dn't stand the clean climate? He always turns up where you least expect him and pops some dandy answers in chemistry when the rest are stumped. He loves his languages espec- ially French and has a weakness for Trig. "Ickie" has a very sweet tooth and sold? about fifteen boxes of candy for us. We have never seen him accompanying the gentler sex but we may be fooled. You know how 'tis. He is an excellent sprinter as was shown in the 1922 Field Day exer- cises. Keep on sprintin' "Ickie."

Irene and Mildred can rarely be told apart but-we are speak- ing of Ire11e. Tall and blonde she can often be seen walking the hulls with typewritten sheets in her hand. She and her sister are very faithful to our class and IIIXVIIYS do their bit. They are the only sisters in the class and at n glance you would think they were twins. They both expect to become typists. "And then he bears witlwut abuse, The grand old name of gG7I,flG'l7lCM1f," Here it is. Look at it sideways and get n Wonderful View of Freckles.

But so fair She takes the breath, of men azoay Who gaze upon hoo' unaware. 'Twould be a shame if we would let Adelaide Amelia slip by unnoticed. She is one of the smallest of theeluss and one of the most attractive. Her chief characteris- tic is the un-gentile way in which she uses her hands in explaining chemistry. She would be an excellent teacher in a Deaf and Dumb School. She and "Kochie" are the A-1 students of Economics class. Adelaide has a long walk to school, but we have never heard her complain and she always seems to appear on time. Ad must have some seeret charm with the boys for she is always popular with them. Perhaps it is her beau- tiful handwriting-Who knows? Do we not see her reading notes every other period ill the day and the rest of the time writing them? She used to have lunch in school, but now she prefers' to walk home.perhaps to get a better appetite. Ad has done more for the S. B.

WVhile we were sitting on the veranda our thoughts and conversation turned to our classmates of '23. There were many friends of the class there but the only members were Carl Smith and I. He showed me a newspaper clipping. Upon it was a picture of a crystal gazer. The article accompanying the picture, stated that she was Russian and had landed in New York recently. It also said that she welcomed engagements. '4What's the idea of showing me this? I asked Carl. "Suppose we'd get her to tell us where all of '23 are" "It isn't a bad idea, but when can we have her?" "I saw her this morning and asked her to come and look over our club house this afternoon. Perhaps she will bring her crystal and entertain us. Could'nt we telephone to her so she will be pre- pared ?" I told the club members about it while Carl went to telephone. He soon returned and said that he had been successful in getting her at her apartment before she left and that she would bring her crystal with her. lVe were seated ill a. semi-circle about an arch from which she was to enter. Some were rather skeptic about her ability but decided that if she could tell the status about those present she could sure- ly tell of those who were not with us. . She appeared: A tall, queenly figure clad in a flowing gown of black, only her eyes above the veiling that hid her face were visible and some twinkle lurked in them that made me wonder whether I had ever seen those eyes before. Her hair was black and was dressed low about her ears. She spoke with a slow drawl which created an air of mystery about her and her voice did not hint at her nationality which surprised me because I understood that she was a foreign woman. She moved quickly to a small table in the midst of the circle and took from it a round object wrapped in a black cloth. As she looked at us with that mysterious air she unwrapped the crystal ball. She held it forward and gazed long and meditatingrly into it. "I see," she began in a low voice, Ha stage with a. group of AMPTENNIAN, '23 Thwirfy Two young people-about thirty in number-dressed in black gowns. Before them I see a portly man with a kindly smile, speaking to them. He is telling them that now they are launching on life's sea. Viola! They have dispersed, several in groups toward tl1e same goal, others alone !" She polished the crystal and continued gazing. "The mist is lifting-a large room with many windows over- looking what might be a college campus, from the contents of the room. It appears to be a college professor's office. At three desks are seated three girls: one of sallow complexion with blond hair, another of small stature and spectacles with fair complexion, the other with her hair coitfed in large ear puffs. She paused and looked at us uncertainly. From the descrip- tion I knew the girls to be our studious Emaline Worley, Ruth Young, and Irene Benvenuti. Then she resumed. The reaction had subsided. Again we were quiet. "A stream of people are filing into a brilliantly lighted foyer of a theater. Theater parties arrive in limousines and dressed in wonderful evening gowns. One group, especially deserves the notice of the people. Two young girls, one a petite, young lady with her blond hair stylishly bobbedg the other, also small but with shining black hair Dutch cut, were escorted by a tall young man," she paused and looked up. An audible giggle sounded in the room. I tried to place the girls for their description seemed that of some I knew. We looked in askance at the person who made the disturbance. It was one of of the classts friends. She burst out, "I know who they are." Then she blushed with embarrassment for Madame Ziptha was look- ing at her in a strange way, as if she wished her either to keep quiet or at least not to discourage her work. But M-R- was not dismayed. "They're Betz and Verna but I wonder who the tall young man is? They are in Paris now and I hear they have in- herited quite a large sum of money? Then the incorrigible girl subsided. With a start I too recognized the semblance between the de- scription of the two girls and Marguerite and Verna. Madame Ziptha went on. "The curtain rises upon a stage upon which many young men are seated. An orchestra commences the opening strains of an opera. A tall young man makes his Thirty Three ' ALIPTENNIAN, '23 appearance from the wings. Although l1is thick brown hair shows pains in arranging it, the curls have escaped their position and lie boyishly across his high brow. Ile wears spectacles and has a nervous air about hiln. He looks every inch oi' a great artist as hc :-tands there facing the young men, baton clasped so tightly in long slim fingers that the white knuckles show. He also belongs to the class of '23." No one could doubt that he was our own Garrett now Professor Conoverre, the instigator of four ll18ll!S glee clubs of the highest rank besides tive great orchestras. He has a studio in Paris that is con- trolled by one of his pupils although he keeps in touch by ra-lin and one in New York. Again Madame Ziptha polished her crystal. "The theater scene still lingers. The curtain now rises 1113011 two comedians-- both very thin, one taller than the other with shining brown hair and twinkling, mischievous eyes that seem to have laughter lurking in them all the time while the other seems very droll in his antics. They seem to hold the audience rocking with mirth. The smaller has adapted the French lingo while the taller speaks with at decided Yiddish tw-ang. They' have several dialogues and their hearers are in spasmsff Carl bent over and whispered that he believed that they were 821111 Gougher and Ramy Shoemaker. I vigorously nodded my heazl. in assent wondering why I had not thought of them before. But she has gone on. "A large, well lighted room of a de- partment StO1'1?fk young man behind the counter dolling out baby ribbon. He is rather small but is Well huilt. His cheeks are putted out as if he had toothache, but-no-he takes something from a bottle-Ah! it is an olive-the toothache no longer is a mystery. In his other hand is-I believe some form of sliced haul." I could hardly sit still. I knew it to be Paul as soon as I heard his description. I wonder why he is so fond of olives and boiled ham Z' ..-ni. f'The office of a doctor. It is furnished, simplyg but in good taste. A patient enters the door. Two young ladies look up ex- pectantly to see which of them is needed. It appears to be a double office, that of a dentist and a chiropodist. The young ladies in ques- tion are both doctors, both ta'l and slim, but the black haired girl is the chiropodist and the brown haired one is the'dentist." AMrTr:NN1AN,, '23, Tliiffll FDU' "They surely are Erma Miller and Ruth Richardsf' I said to Carl. "A large building comes into view, WVitl1in is a tailor shop. A small tailor behind the encounter, is showing some material to a young lady. He has sparkling eyes and is sure of a sale. Be- yond him is another man taking measurements of another customer," I tried for a time to guess who they were but gave it up as a bad job. At last it dawned on me that it was in our old home town, Rizner and Glass--Tailors. Had I not often seen it before? And were not George Hahn and Carl Smith living in the same building, pounding the typewriter keys as newspaper men ? "The scene changes-the open country-large fields of waving grain, a homey looking farm-house, a young man sits on the porch .smoking a cigar. He is tall and dark. f'George Koch," I said mentally, f'He's the only farmer we had in our class-married XVhee-some fast worker!" "The country again," I paused wondering who this could be- H'l'he west-evening, sunset-a large cattle ranch. Out near the liorizon a small woman stands, with her hand in her husbands- ggazing with reverant awe at the sinking sun-J' Josephine my brain fclamored . Dear J oe, who went with me to college and with whom ll had the best times of my college life. She had married a young 'lad who was graduated from an agricultural college and now was 'living .a married life ,after teaching high school for several years. "Again an office. It is very high and overlooks the numerous Lbuildings of ,a city. A door opens into another office-more private than the iirst. At a desk is seated a small business-like woman with shell-rimmed glasses bending over her work and conversing with two girls, one a slender girl with an abundance of brown hair .and the other a robust girl with a merry smile and large, warm brown eyes. They seemed to be the forrner's aids, for they had two :smaller desks with typewriters on them near her desk. From the .appearance of the room. it might be the business office of an im- j portant newspaper." Madame Ziptha looked np at -us and poiished her crystal, I tnrnfed over 'in my mind the few remaining Commercial pupils 'of '23 and decided that the trio was Edytlie Deibert, Elizabeth Rice -and Florerrce Hoffman. Madame Ziptha lowered ,her eyes again to the crystal.

So our Mildred is a Christian Missionary helping the poor and teaching their children. The people present were very quiet as Madame Ziptha finished her last speech.

Thirty Nine Anirmisxxiim, '23 Ni CLASS OF '24 Class History of '24 Y tale is very brief and simple and the reason for my relating all this to you, is because I am the invisible spirit of the Northampton High School and I hover yearly in the busy class-rooms and echoing corrodors. Year after year I welcome new faces and bid a sad farewell to my old friends and each class passing on leaves some mark of fame in our halls. About three years ago, after a peaceful rest of two months, my doors were again unlocked and many bright, happy and sun- burned faces greeted me once more, with them entered about sixty small girls and boys, bashful and shamefaced. They were very young and very timid, so I smiled upon them very kindly, giving them the best you would have been quite surprised to see them grow and expandg although mere youngsters they took active interest in their workg courage only making at brave showing in Basket Ball, orchestra, concerts, societies and even in their studies. Vifhen a number of new clubs were formed as the classical, dramatic and scientiiic, they were very often put on the various committees and truly they carried olt these honors very well. By the end of that year they had reached a marked degree of development and prom- ised to turn out a fine class. The next year it did my old eyes good to see them return minus a few but braver and taller than ever. This time they so actively pursued their work that shortly even the teachers and upper classmen shifted responsibilities to their sturdy shoulders. Several real athletes were turned out, both boys and girls, among the most prominent of these were Edgar Lane, Sterling Miller, 'Willard Snyder and Joseph Smith of the boys and among the girls, Helen ffl,L0ll,2flllll'l, Marguerite Berg and Ethel Mohry. Then some good musicians were discovered, for instance there is Dorothy Kern who is our favorite accompanist, while Lillian Laros, Edgar Lane, Sterling Miller, llfilbert Marsh and Franklin Rice joined the or chestra. There were others with plenty pep for speaking. Adele lleyman has a splendid reputation along this line. And also some with the facility for making good marks. I need not mention names here for it you but glance at their report cards you will see what you will see. Upon these affairs I beamed graciously for I was becoming proud of them. But of course I was obliged to frown Forf 0110 AMPTENNIAN, '23 once in a. while when they played pranks a little too openly. And now this last year has been one of great success, for they are now the present Junior class, the well organized, trained, so- phisticated, energetic and full of pep lower-upper classlnen. They have taken the same honors in all sports and school activities as formerly. They have taken charge of the school magazine, have contributed varsity members in baseball and basketball and proven they still have genius for music. Every minute is now bringing tl1e111 closer to their goal-g:graclu- ation and day by day in every way they are learning to cherish nie more and more. D. L. N.

H. S. First, let us take Basketball. From the very beginning of our Iligh School life our class seemed to show excellence in sports. Last year, as Freshmen, we captured the Inter-Class Cup. This year we have again made the other classes mournful by doing the same thing. Then, too, we have furnished one regular and one sub for the Varsity Team. Arthur Young, the star forward of not only North- ampton High but also of the whole Lehiggh Valley Basket Ball League is a member ot our class. The girl's team has also been benefiited by the forward, Ruth Newhard we gave and the two subs, Elizabeth Newhard and Eva Dotter. But you may say, "Are sports the only things you excell in?" To that question may be given a big "NO," for in other activities of the school we have done our part. The orchestra has seven of our members. They are Renia Guth, Celloistg Violet Rupp, Ruth Newhard, Arthur Young, Cornet- istsg Robert Klotz, D1'lllll1DGI'Q Elizabeth Newhard, Pianistg George tlnyder and Thomas Fluck, Saxaphonists. These are all well trained on their different instruments and help to make the orchestra a greater success. S. B. A. also has not been forgotten for the members we con- tributed are faithful and industrious workers. They are doing their very best to benefit the school while in this society. The members are Ida Kivert, John Bell and David Miller. lVheu a stranpger came within the doors of N. H.

Perhaps the stranger would think they were only a decoration AM P'rr:NxI,xN, '23 Forty Four but they nere not-for they were the signs of what the students and faculty could find every Tuesday and Thursday for seven weeks in the Cafeteria in the Domestic Science Rooms. All the articles awaiting them were made by the Sophomore Girls under our able instructor's direction. In fact, the girls of '25 may be called the "Cooks of Northampton High." Several of our members have also been chosen by the school for the 'fBlack and Orange" Staff. They are Robert Klotz, John Bell and Elizabeth Newhard.

Wfhen the guests which included the lady members of the faculty and the girls' mothers entered the dining room they found it daintily decorated in rose and white. Sprays of roses were strewn over the doors a11d the pipes. Butterflies flitted about, some alighting on the chandelier others on the pretty little nut cups and still others were on the wall. An abundance of wild flowers were found in vases. glass baskets, and dishes. There were streamers draped across the ceiling and streamers for both tables. The tables were in the form of an L. Each nut basket was fashioned in a different manner, some resembling flowers and others just pretty little baskets. As the guests arrived introductions were made and through the influence of strains of music which came from the Victrola everyone became talkative and friendly and so a genial atmosphere prevailed. After all were present we played a number of games some of which caused the guests to search for knowledge which was hidden in their brains somewheree. Another laughter-raising game was "Christmas Shoppingf' in which the guests imitated mechanical toys. They were also asked to imitate barnyard voices and some of them were very good imitations. The guests were then given songs, quartets were formed and the singing began. Voices sweet, harsh, low, and high mingled together and formed a great uproar which caused some to almost explode with laughter. The most important thing occurred next and that was the refreshments. tSh! we don't want to hurt their feelings but we suppose that was what attracted them to our partyl. The menu consisted of a tempting fruit salad, tasty cheese and olive sand- wiches, refreshing lemonade, creamy fudge in grapefruit baskets. sticky tatfy. salted peanuts, and a delicious chocolate sundae. Then while the girls washed the dishes the guests had a chat- ting period and became better acquainted. After a thorough inspec- tion of our kitchen the guests departed, all wishing to come back sometime.

We have the llOll0I' of being the largest Class in the history of Northanlpton High School. After a few difficulties we got used to the routine of work. Wfe gave quite a few 1nen1bers to the orchestra. Those include: Ethel Reidy, Beatrice SCll0CllCllG1'Q01', Pialnistsg Arthur Schafer, .lfaul Wolfgang, Violinistsg Noah Beers, Cornetistg Myles Miller, l'l11tist. XVe have a. line boys' Basket Ball team, although they did not capture the inter-class cup, they ilCCOll1pllSl10d great tasks. Tl1e ruerubers of the team are: Paul Wolfgang, Joe Buchino, Robert Sllllfll, Glenn Laudenberger, Russell Wliezllld, Morris Miller, Otto Miller and Jack Lutton. The class has organized two science clubs. One is called tflidison Club" with Verna Wfeaver as president and Anna Mycio as secretary. The other is the "Burbank Club" with Jack Lutton as president and Herbert Conover as secretary. These clubs meet -once evely two weeks and discuss scientific matters, XVe have ine ieresting debates and stories. The two clubs are combining and preparing a program to be held some afternoon in the illltllf0I'lllIIl for the upper classes.

The halls were decorated with autumn leaves, corn stalks and festoons of green crepe paper. The upper classmen entered the lligh School building by the side entrance and the Freshmen were all lined up outside the front entrance. waiting for the doors to open. Wfhen the time arrived they came into the building, talthough some "bashful" boys came in shyly a few minutes laterj. marching between two lines of upper classinen. Each one entering had to have his name pinned on the coat or dress at a place where it could easily be seen. Partners were secured by drawing numbers, and then the 'festivities began. A conversational hour in which everybody got acquainted was lirst spent. Later all were taken into the auditor- .inin where a delightful program was rendered by the upper class- nlen. L-ight refreslnnents were served, which was followed by a 4'I"I'BSilIl16I1 Cakewalk". All the Freshmen were lined up and the Yictrola was played. XVIICII the Victrola stopped they were supposed to stop, but they were all so anxious for the "cake" that sometimes they kept on walking. As the students left a Northampton High School Handbook, better known as the "Freshmen Biblen was handed to each. The school spirit was shown by the large number of students that attended. this making a success of the evening. Throughout the evening the upper classmen tried to make the Freshmen realize that they were a part of tl1e student body of th N. H. S. E. R. '23 Fifty Owe ABIPTENNIXXN, ,253 "Now We Launch, When Do We Anchor?" E have seen how, since the liberation of human thought in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, a comparatively few curious and intelligent men, chiefly in western Europe, have produced a vision of the world and a body of science that is now, on th ema- terial side, revolutionizing life. Many of these men have worked against great discoui-agement, with insufficient funds and small help or support from the mass of mankind. It is impossible to believe that these men were the maximum intellectual harvest of their gener- ation. Wliy was material advancement so slow up to this time? 'Was it that we lacked the skill? XVe can hardly say that, because some of the greatest philosophers, scientists, engineers, statesmen, musicians, painters, explorers, orators and authors the world has, ever known had lived during these years of suspended physical de- velopment. England alone, in the past three Centuries must have produced scores of Newtons who never had the opportunity for acquiring knowledge, hundreds of Daltons, Darwins, and Bacons who died stunted in hovels, never got a chance to prove their quality, never were able to launch out. It was not until the eighteenth century, that Noble brougllt forth the greatest invention known to man,-dynamite. It was dyna- mite that 11121116 physical development possible to be completed. Men- tal. development was the outgrowth of this invention. It took dyna- mite to open the minds of the people to launch out into broader fields, to anchor their- talents and ambitions. on larger and greater things in the world. As I looked about us, I was struck by the contrast between con- ditions in the average homes and schools of' today fllld the conditions. under which my grandfather and your grandfather lived. Take the typewriter that weighs no more than a maderate sized book: the incandescent lightg the telephone, through which you or I can talk to any city 011 this continent: the music cabinet which contains the- records of the tinest arias train the best operas. and selections by the greatest musicians in the world. Almost within arms reach several? shelves of books, filled with the most profound and beautifully ex- pressed thoughts of ages are accessible to us. WVe can spend hours-, with Bacon or Huxley, Tyndal or Franklin. and absorb the homely wisdom of those great men. We can laugh with Mark Twain, or' AM PTENNIAN, '23 F i ff 11 THSUJ l philosophize with Herbert Spencer. Wle can follow Gibbon and see the great Roman Empire spread itself over the known world and then watch it crumble to decay. Wle have seen all these great achieveinents, but what is the ulti- mate end of knowledge ? "Some men covet knowledge ont of a natural curiosity and inquisitive temperg some to entertain the lnind with vanity and delightg some for ornament and reputationg some for vic- tory and contentioug many for lucre and a livelihoodg and but few for employing the Divine gift ol? reason to the use and benefit of man-kind." Now we are nearing the time, when we will launch our boats out on the deep blue ocean-an ocean nlade up of the world, where it takes honest and hard work, done conscientiously and with deter- lllllltlllflll to win, lVith our determination to launch out in the world, this question arises: when do we anchor? A boat will anchor, when it has reached its harbor, with all its wares and its passengers, after going thru severe storms and struggles- and winning. So with a niang after great struggles and privations he reaches his goal, not only reaches it, but holds it and then spreads out around this goal. The value of an individual to the connnunity is in proportion to his productive capacity. lVhen a man who is ripe in experience and constructive ability quits work at sixty, the comrnunity is losing a type of man who is a powerg his talents must be turned to the devel opment of the younger generation. lt is to the advantage of the nation to keep its industrial builders in harness just as long as it can. Had Edison retired at lifty and enjoyed "graceful leisurev during the last twenty years, the cost to the nation would have been incalculable. Henry Ford. with a desire to 'tplay squaref' has vol- nntarily undertaken to pay 3l24:.000,ll00 to creditors of the Li11col11 Motor Par Company, and thereby sets a precedent in the business world. The ambition to live i11 idleness should always be discouraged just as we discourage any other form of waste. People write to magazines H1111 ask-'tflive us a New Year's editorial that will tell us what this earthly struggle is for. Some- times I think it is a lot oi' foolishness. Why work and thrash around, :when the end of it is death, which comes soon ?"

Wfhen they drew out their anchor at tl1e end of life and step- ped over the threshold into the other life, I am sure they were able to answer any question that the Almighty put to them.

Fifty Fino AM rwnxs IAN, ,23 Bertine was determined to follow up every clue that he should iind and so accordingly, one day he followed a stray dog, which he noticed while guarding the wood. The dog led him through the woods and when finally he did come to a clearing he found a cabin. The Clog went to the door of the cabin and Bertine followed. Upon going inside he found an old man ill with fever. He talked constant- ly of Mr. King and his pine trees. After giving the man some medi- cine he qnieted down and slept. Bertine decided to stay with him for a while. Q When the man awoke he was very weak and could scarcely- speak. Bertine asked him who he was and what he was doing here. He replied that he was the father of Jim Cassly who was foreman on Mr. King's wood lot. He said, "I am dying, and before I go I want you to give the letter that you will find under my pillow, to J im" and with this he passed into the Great Beyond. Bertine ran all the way home and ilnniediately upon reaching there gave the letter to Jim. In the letter was revealed that Jinrs. father, in search of Jim who had left home many years ago, had- fallen in with a gang of lumber thieves. They had worked in all parts. of the country and iinally reached Tarryville. He had an attack oft fever and after the rest of the gang were through with their work at Mr. King's lot they left him alone to die. Jim set forth at once to his father with Mr: King and Bertine but he could but glimpse upon a loved one, one who was never to: speak in this world again. That evening when dusk had fallen' and the nnoon arose, -lima Casslyis father was buried 'neath large pine tree. lVhile the owls hooted and the wind whistled through the trees, Father Andi-on, a. priest whose home was in Tarryville, pronounced a few words over the grave of the departed one.

ABIPTENNIAN, '23 Fif7yeSi1ff SOMETHING FOR THE LOVERS OF GOLDSMITPPS PRIMROSE FAMILY TO THINK ABOUT. Moses was twentyatwo years old and had acquired a strong body, including a pair of powerful arms. The manager of the London Red Sox had consented to give him a tryout at twirling against the Liver- pool Professionals. As the time for the important event drew nigh, the Primroses became very excited. They were undecided as to how they were to dress. But on the Saturday morning of the game, they concluded that the best way to make Moses popular was to dress in their gayest colors and make a good impression upon the officials. Olivia and Sophia were dressed in such dazzling colors that they were sure of attracting the male base ball fans to themselves. Finally they set out in the rickety family coach. They arrived just as the game was to start. This was Mrs. Primrose's intention for then everybody would be interrupted and naturally they would cause a commotion. Mr. Primrose found to his dismay that hardly any grandstand seats were available and only bleacher room was easily obtained. There upon he raised a great confusion by demanding in loud sten- torian tones that he would have grandstand seats whether they were obtainable or not. He explained minutely who HE was and who his SON was. At last room was made and a very indignant family oc- cupied seats near the center of the grandstand. It had been decided beforehand that Dick was to remain in the coach and his admission fee to be spent in buying peanuts for the family. The batteries were announced and the game began. When Moses' name was announced Mr. Primrose swelled with pride and flung bits of conversation to his neighbor, illld made remarks as, f'Moses will show them how to play base ball," etc. Moses pitched the first ball and the man at the bat made a two-base hit. Mr. Primrose shouted with joy saying that Moses had done very well by hitting the p1ayer's bat with the very iirst ball. The next batter hit the ball over the fence and stretched his legs for a home run. Mrs. Primrose could hardly contain herself with the joy she felt. She could only sit and mutter unintelligently, '4My son, my son. lsn't it wonderful, magnificent." Then the Vicar realized something was wrong for the fans were yelling and hooting at Moses. He soon saw that Moses was not as Fifty Seven AMPTENNIAN, '23 good as he ThoughT he was. hut he really e vuld noi' Tell wha? 'sfas wrong wiTh l1i1n.

Our iirst three years were spent chiefly in learning how to cook well. This last year is the year that has conie as a fitting conclusion. 'Our course of study for this year was, a study of materials, a few practical cooking lessons, serving instructions. decorating lessons. the high school luncheons, home planning and millinery lessons. YVhile studying materials we received samples of ditferent ma' terials, a. description of each, and their uses. This proved very inter- esting for we learned many new materials and also the weaves of fcotton, silk and woolen goods. During the cooking lessons we made things which we later made for the High School luncheons. After this we studied serving and decorating which we dem- onstrated at the Faculty Luncheon. The room was beautifully dec- orated to give it a Fhristmassy air and the menu consisted of Yule- itide dishes. The Faculty rnade many comments upon the success of the luncheon. 'Sixty One AMPTEXNIAN, '22 After Christmas was over we planned menus for the High School luncheons and printed them on large cards. The girls prided themselves in making these cards for each group indulged in friend- ly rivalry to outdo each other. The High School luncheons were a success. This success depended largely upon Miss Seidel who with patience guided us carefully over the stormy sea of preparing good, well-balanced meals. The girls were proud of the praise received concerning the luncheons. Our next step was to prepare the luncheon for the Northamp- ton County Educational Club. This time the room donned a dress of green and white in honor of St. Patrick. The menu consisted of things green in color and each dish was given an Irish name printed on pretty green and white menu cards. Candle holders were made in the Manual Training Department and when the green candles in them were lit the table looked lit for a king. In home planning we picked homes, drew plans of the homes and their different rooms, chose a family, and found pictures of fur- niture for our home. This was another interesting subject for it taught us to choose objects carefully. For the next week we were busy buying hat shapes, materials, and trimmings for we were going to turn into milliners for several weeks. Miss Seidel again proved herself an able instructress by teaching us how to make beautiful hats. One day while out walking I heard two gossips talking about the pretty hats the High School girls wore. One of them said, "They must ha.ve paid some price for themf' I felt as though I should tell them that the High School had received a shipment of hats from Paris. Probably they would have gasped in astonishment. We are planning to entertain our mothers to show them our accomplishments of this year. It will be in order of a Basket and Flower Party. VVe hope all friends of Northampton High School will visit the Domestic Science Exhibition at the Annual Spring Concert. At this exhibition you will be able to see our hats, different dishes, our decorating ability, and other accomplishments. ADIPTENNIAN, '23 Siiviy T100 MANUAL TRAINING The N. H. H. boasts of a fine Manual Training department. It consists of a large room containing 21 working benches, a large as- sortment of tools, and a capable instructor. When this department was started, just a few small articles were produced in a year. The output has greatly increased and at the present time, several hundred articels are put on display yearly. From small simple objects, made by the seventh graders, to massive library tables and beautiful floor lamps, produced by the high school students, are turned out yearly. The wood turning department is the most interesting. In this department the most beautiful floor lamps, and many other articles are produced from one piece of rough timber. The continuation school also does its share for the display, by making about 50 articles every year. We sincerely hope that the good work will be kept up, and that every year there will be a marked increase in the animal display. THOIIAS FLUCK, '25.

At a first glance we thought we had been invited to a joke party. However, we'1l all say that was not the Case. Wle all reached the door in safety and were ushered in -by a Dutch maid and then tl1e fun began. At 8.30 we removed our masks. The first event was cracker eating contest, which might have ended disastrously had it not been the hydrant was near. Then came the dipping contest. After that was over there was a sudden rush for towels and combs. This followed by the most important event and and that was '4The Eats". Many kind words of praise were given to our- hostess. Games were played after which followed singingg and dancing. A word to be said about the costumes. They were very unique and beautiful. ' AM P'rnNN1.xN, '23 S-f4"f.'! Sl-ff' Inter-class Sleighing Party On a cold snappy, February evening, those members of the Junior and Senior classes who risked the wind set aut on a sleighing party that resulted in an evening of enjoyment to all. All were bundled in woolens and furs, a11d with the sleigh covered with straw no one felt tl1e biting wind. - The trip was a lengthy one because tl1e horses insisted on iaking them to Guthsville via a route known to none ofthe party. lVe all knew however, that lVo1f's drivers were dependable men so the only result of the trip was that the boys were solicitous about the health of the fair members of the party. Upon arriving at our destination we all needed something to limber us up, so the player piano was resorted to. After indulging in dancing for asufhile we all felt the need of food and a tasty lunch- eon was placed before us by the proprietress. ' There was quite some excitement on the homeward way because of the sudden disappearance of the humorist of Sleigh No. 2. Every- one indulged in the search for the lost member but their search was fruitless. The police of one of the villages we passed was aroused and after more searching discovered the partyite under the seat fast asleep. NVe arrived home at an early hourf ?J a tired but happy bunch. Long live the memory of the Senior-Junior Party of 1923. H. O. L. '24 Foomixn. A farmer-'s son who was in college was a spendthrift. He need- ed money and wrote a letter home to his father i11 poetry. The letter read: "The rose is red The violet blue Send me fifty P. D. Q." The father not wishing to SGDCI any money also answered in poetry. f'The rose is red And sometimes pink Enclosed Hnd fflty I don't think." Sixty Svzfm AAI1'TENNI,kN, '23 THE SCHOOL BETTERMENT ASSOCIATION The purpose of the School Betterment Association is to better and control all school activities. Each year it aims to influence the students, so that they might make the best out of themselves. The association began its work this year by giving a reception to the Freshmen and by presenting all the members of the High School with a School Hand Book. Next year the books will be given to Freshmen only. In order to buy books next year the money was obtained by holding a Cafe Chantant. An Etiquette Campaign was held during the year, in order to cultivate good manners and good morals. A personis best and only right motive in the cultivation of good manners should be to make himself better than he is, and render himself agreeable to everyone. We hope this campaign has helped many of the pupils in school. The members of the S. QB.

Our four years in High School were indeed too short. VVhat is it that arouses a desire to go back to High School? Is it music? Perhaps it isg because so much was heard and accomplished in a short time. When Freshmen, we became melnbers of the Glee Club under the direction of Miss Faulkner and were active. Vlfill any of us forget the operetta, 'Tolislled Pebbles ?" Then there was the Orchestra Concert, the iirst of its kind. life were fortunate to be represented that year and the remaining three by Lillian Miller and Garrett Conover, violinists. The Orchestra Concert becanie an annual event thereafter under the supervision of Mr. Harry Newhard. WVe were proud to take part in the Annual Spring Concert. lVhy? VVe sang with the High School Glee Club and the audience couldn't tell whether we were Freshmen or Seniors. But alas! Per- haps our height gave us away. lVe progressed so rapidly that, by the time we were Juniors, a selected Girls' Glee Club presented the cantata, "Pan On a SHIIIIIIQI' llayf' by Bliss. It was a brilliant success due to the untiring efforts of our able directress, Miss Marie B. Faulkner. Only a. week later-the 24th of Marc-h-the third Annu-al 01'- chestra Concert was successfully rendered. It proved to be the best offered and showed preparation and work on the part of' the director, Mr. Newhard. Our Junior year was indeed the year of' opportunity for the 4XMP'.l'ENNIAN, '23 Seven ty! girls for the Girls' Glee Club presented "Miss Cl1e1-ryblossomf' the musical comedy in 3 acts. It was so well received, that a repetition of the play was necessary. All characters were portrayed by girls, and it was indeed difficult to believe that some of the men in the play were girls. Then we were Seniors, and without our supervisor Miss Faulk- ner, for she had married. How unfortunate we felt by the loss of the one who had done so much for us. And Mrs. Frankeniield shall not be forgotten. But news was received that Northampton was fortunate enough io secure the services of Miss Anna Moyer, from Topton, as super- visor of Music. She was charming, interested in her work and de- termined to heighten our musical reputation. Music, in daily assembly, progressed so rapidly, that at the end of the first month the Freshmen tried to surpass the Seniors. Talent was plentiful so Miss Moyer and Mr. Newhard arranged a varied program, which was presented Nov. 24, by the pupils and orchestra for the benefit of the library. Un Dec. 1 the Orchestra presented a pleasing program in Grace Reformed Church. Not until May 3rd was the Orchestra Concert presented. It was enjoyed by all for Mr. Newhard the conductor, had made it all a program should be. The following program was rendered: Overture-"Paqne Dame" ............................

Lzulis Music week was observed to the fullest extent, for on May 11, the Annual Spring Concert, under Miss Moyer's supervision, was presented to an over-filled house. It was a most successful event. The grades as well as the High School did their best. The Girls? Glee Club sang "Dickory, Dickory, Dock", Shartan, 'fOnly to Theev, Saint Saens, and "Big Brown Hearn, Mana-Zuca. Both Glee Clubs then sang "Bridal Chorus" from Rose Maiden by Cowen. A Senior trio consisting of Harp, Leonore Rupp, Voice, Lillian Miller and Violin, Garrett Conover rendered two selections in addi- tion to the orchestra numbers. This was the last concert in which we participated. How we long to be one of the chorus again. We, the Senior Class now know the true value of music. How happy we will be commencement night, yet how sorrowful. But music that night will play a most wonderful part for did we not sing together for the last time in our High School Days.

The scenery was well planned and was furnished and put up by the Senior class. The costumes were very natural and the color schemes were delightful, and the number- less strings of beads upon the girls shone under tl1e glare of the colored footlights. There were five sets of lights of various colors which were continually being turned upon the actors. The singing was superb and our High School can well be proud of its talent for the singers are rare that can compete with our Lillian Miller and Garrett Conover. The play itself was a romantic musical comedy in three acts and lasted for two hours. It is built around the character of Rob, later known as Sir Gilbert Howe ot' English Nobility. Rob was stolen when an infant, by his nurse, Meg, who later becomes the wife of Marto, a gpysy. Rob grows to manhood amongst the gypsies believing Meg and Mal-to to be his parents. It happened one day, while riding with her fiancee, Lord Craven, Lady Constance Martendale becomes lost in the woods. They wonder to the gypsy camp where Constance and Rob meet and fall in love at first sight. Craven objects to Rob's attitude, but in a very funny scene with Marto and Sinfo, he is made to tell Sir George, who later comes in search of Constance, that Rob is a charming fellow. In act two Rob goes to the home of Constance and serenades her. They plan to elope but are overheard by Craven who informs. Sir George and plans are made to capture Rob. This is successfully accomplished and Rob is thrown into prison, but later escapes. Two years elapse and Rob has come into his estate, his identity being proven by Meg. He becomes a successful composer, a friend of the Prince and a social lion. Constance has remained true to her' love for Rob and on his return to England he woos and wins her for his wife. As Rob says "The good fairies- have led me to the- beautiful, country, after all, and our story, Constance, can end in the proper way. 'fThey lived happily ever after." There are also pretty love affairs between Nina and Capt, Jerome, and Zara and Sinfo and many comedy scenes by Sinfo- and Marto., Ai1r'rENN1AN, '23 Seventy Fow- Time-1778 in reign of George III.

'23 EIGHTEEXTH ANNUAL SENIOR ORATORICAL CONTEST After long weeks of weary preparations, the contest was held Feb. 21, 1923. The curtain rose to reveal the stage tastefully set with comfortable wicker furniture and beautifully colored Hoor lamps. After the first wave of stage fright passed the speakers settled themselves comfortably into their pennanted chairs. Mr. Shaetfer kindly consented to remain with us to ease our feelings so there were nine seated upon the stage. Everyone did remarkably well and as it always is and always will be, there should have been eight prizes. ABIPTENNIAN, '23 S01T6"llf.'l Eniifhf After the speeches were delivered the judges, Miss Alice Man- snr of Cedar Crest College, Allentown, Attorney Robert E, James of Easto11, and Mr. E. A.

He spoke for quite a while and so sharpened our impa- tience that it was scarcely unable to bear. He stated that the prizes were not given to those who produced the best effect upon the audience but those whom, they, the judges, knew to have delivered their speeches best as judged by points. Finally he announced the winners as follows, and presented the prizes to: First girls prize ten dollars in gold donated by the Alumni Association to Edith N. C. Wolf.

At this time last year we were holding down last place in the Lehigh Valley Interscliolas- tic Leagueg this year, although in the second division, Noi-tliampton is leading Slatington and Tamauqua. This year we have succeeded in winning more games than our team of 1922 did. Some of the achievements of our varsity, this year, will go down o11 record as not having been accomplished by former N. H. S. teams. For instance, Northampton High's basket ball teams of past years have been un- able to beat Tamauqua and Easton on their iioors and even the Champ- ionship team of 1921 we defeated at Tamanqna. by a 45-51 score, and lost to Easton by a score of 32-30. Our team this year has suc- ceeded in winning from both of these teams. I do not wish to detract from the ability of the 1921 team because it is impossible. for the whole Lehigh Valley knows of that team's remarkable record which is not to be marred. Instead, it is a tribute to their ability because it shows the quality of all the teams in the league with which they had to combat to win the pennant and so far, in my estimation, is the best team ever turned out at High School, although the team which will represent us next year has a very good chance of claim: ing that honor if they display the brand of ball they did toward the -end of this season. Another accomplishment which not very many teams can boast of, is an outstanding feature of the team of '23. Wie have defeated the identical championship team of 1921 although this may be due to their absence from the cage game for awhile. lVe started the 'season almost a hopeless case, with only one of last year's players back, Lane, and four substitutes, Miller, Smith, Young, Thomas. :Soon after the Catasauqua game, the high school obtained the ser- Eighty 091,97 AMPTENNIAN, '23 vices of Mr. James Skelton, better known as 'tJimn1y Duffy" who soon whipped into shape a formidable scoring machine in Young, Miller, Zimmerman, Snyder, Lane and Thomas. The team gradu- ally improved through the untiring efforts of Coach Skelton, and the team's chances to get out of last place in the league appeared brigllter. To Coach Skelton goes the honor of developing one of the best forwards in the Lehigh Valley in the person of Young, who captured the high scoring honor of the league against such ex- perienced. "starsi' as Kean and Williams of Catasauqua, who were close seconds. Kean and illilliams, however, were with the league's leading team while Young was playing with a second division team. This adds to Young's laurels, who also broke the league record for high scoring-. Young's record is 171 points while the recent high scoring record of the league was 156. PERSONNEL OF THE NORTHAMPTON 1923 BASKET' BALL TEAM YOUNG. Although this has been Young's Iirst year on the team he has: developed into one ofthe best forwards in the history of High School! basket ball, Although playing with a second division team he has managed to outscore every one in the league, to add to his record, he has "smashed" the Lehigh Valley cage record for high scoring.. Young, who is a young giant, also captained the team this year, although he is yet a sophomore. The N. H. S. has this young 'cover- nightt' star for the next two years, and he bids fair with two more- years of experience to become one of the best interscholastic players: in the Valley. Young is also a base ball player of' note having made' the varsity in his iirst year. He is one of the most popular young-e sters in High School, for he is of the kind who refuses to brag about himself. Modesty is his middle name. Keep up the good Worki Young. MILLER. Sterling Miller needs no introduction. He has made a name for himself by making it possible for Young to capture the league scoring honor by means of the Miller-Young pass which is not toy be laughed at. Sterling's team work is in itself an example of his Am1.rtu1iNN1,AN,'25.L Eiglny Twoi w willingness to boost others upwards. Mr. Sterling Miller, I am glad to say, will be back in 1924 so we will not have to worry about the Miller-to-Young system for next year's league team. ZIMMERMAN. "Son" Zimmerman, the human ladder and a new iiud for the center position made a name for himself in the Catasauqua game. lVhen 'fSounyi' came out for the varsity he surprised the B. B. fol- lowers by showing wonderful ability which was acquired in a few months by means of Skeltonls "chestnut burrsf' He is back for 1924 and should show one long line of action during next year's B. B. season. He is not of the kind whose temper is aroused easily and for this reason he is admired by opposing players for his clean playing. LANE. This husky, freckled faced lad who lives at Coplay, held down the guard position this year, although last year he was the mainstay at the forward position. That he accomplished more at the guard po- sition than at the forward post is not to be questioned. Lane is like a cog in the wheel and we are hoping that this cog will be in the usual position on the 1924 team, for to lose Lane will probably handi- cap our chances in the league next year. SNYDER. Williard David Snyder, alias 'tThe Sheik," was the really great surprise of the 1923 B. B. team. A former forward, he was shifted to guard and shattered all expectations by more than filling that post. He is a wicked scorer and a scrappy little guard. :"Bill," will also be back for the 1924 season. "Bills" innocent look does not do l1i1n credit for his wonderful aggressiveness in a game. He should clinch the same position next year. THOMAS. Paul Thomas, an alternate guard of the past season, will be lost to the High School B. B. team by graduation this year. He was the only senior who participated in any of the High School sports including base ball and basket ball for four successive years. 4'Tom- my's" work at guard during the 1923 season was an example of his fondness for the sport. VVhen Skelton gave his orders to "Tommy" to go in a11d "hang a man" Paul was sure to carry them out, as can Eighty Three AhII'TENNIAN, '23 be proven by anyone who has seen him in action, for they will say, 'fhe blanked many a man without a point for the time that he was in." That "Tom" is a good sport is evidenced by his readiness to make amends for his faults after a game. "Shorty," so christened by Skelton, takes pride in boasting of one thing, that of having not missed one basket ball practice in his four years at High. 'fTommy" has succeeded in making a host of friends in school and around town. His only regret is, that he cannot be with the B. B. crew of '23 next year, but he has stated that graduation is 11ot going to keep him from playing basket ball, but that he will play independent ball next season. Good-bye and wood-lucl' "Tomm f" ., 1 za X 5: your work is labeled "SUCCESS" Rrzietmicn, '24, SMITH. 'tJ0e" Smith needs no introuduction, after playing good ball as a utility man last year on the Black X Orange B, B. team. He will, in all probability be back next year to serve the team for his third year. During his past two seasons, "Joe" has shown himself an able player, in that he can play any position on the team in a satisfactory manner. Let's hope he keeps up the good work so that he may earn the jersey bearing the number 6, for the season of '24. On the diamond "Joe" took the back-stop's post and has given all that can be expected from him. In all likeliness he will do the receiving next year and we wish to cheer him along. Go it Smith, you're a sport all right. REICHARD, 'QL The first five men will, in all probability, constitute next year's team and their chances for the pennant is probably better than those of any other team in the league. Besides these five regulars, Joe Smith, a crack basket ball player and the best bet for sixth man, will also be available. Among other "subs" will be the following who constituted the second team during the past season: Buchina. NV. Snyder, Rabenold and Wfolfgang. We take this opportunity to give Mr. Gardner full credit for keeping the team in condition during the past year. He ably assisted Mr. Skelton in obtaining the records made by the team during 1923. The N. H. S. is well satisfied by the manner in which he has managed the team.

In the early days of our Nation's life at young man found only' two or three professions which he could enter and chief' ot' these was: the Ministry. Time was when the only ones who lnul any education were the ministers and they were the source of intluunatioii and au- thority on all subjects. A minister was u combination of' ax peclzl- gogue, a lawyer, and zz minister. His mls practically the only calling: that involved higher education. He was also, as a rule, the highest paid person in the cmninunitjf. It wus not difficult then' to finel young men to go into this line of life work. Times have changed since then. lllith the advance oth civiliza- tion came new professions. The development of' business. industryg coinmerce. transportation. efl,uQa1t'ion, etc... createfl. 21. rlemancl for AMPTENNIAN, '23 N'iHf'f,U'i trained business men, engineers, scientists, educators, chemists and others. The commercial and industrial world offered unlimited op- portunity for making fortunes and getting large salaries while the income of the men in the ministry did not keep pace with the ad- vance in the cost of living, thus barely affording a living. Those who could afford an education chose those fields where wealth and fortunes could be acquired. They could see no challenge in the pro- fession of the ministry. Year after year found the ranks depleting until large numbers of churches were without ministers. The con- dition becalne alarming and the Church began to challenge young mein, even offering financial aid, to enter the ranks. In the past the young men sought the ministry, but soon the Church sought the young men. As one from the ranks and the only one from N. H. S., to enter the Ministry, I want to contribute this brief article in the interest of the Ministry as a life choice. I dare say that between one hundred and fifty and two hundred boys were graduated from our High School in the past twenty years. The number of boys that went to higher institutions I do not know, but I should say about fifty, perhaps more. That would mean that out of fifty who took up some profession only one trained for the Ministry. Too small a percentage! In twenty years Ellld more of high school history only one contribution of life service was made to this great calling. There should have been 111ore. Our High School has not made its full contribution to life until more young men catch the vision and consecrate themselves to this definite form of service. Our faculty has not been measuring up to its full responsibility if it has not been sowing the seed and turning the attention of the young men, who show signs of qualifi- cation, to the Christian Ministry as a life choice. Here is a field of service that is calling for more young men and N. H. S. will not have fulfilled its duty to humanity until it sends out a few more. IVhat is there in the Christian Ministry that might appeal to a young man facing the choice of a life work? VV hy do we need more men for this work? In the beginning, let me say, that if any young man is thinking of entering some profession where he can make money, let him not think of the Ministry. No minister has ever gotten rich through preaching the Gospel. One bright phase of this side of the profession is that constituency of the Christian Church is beginning to waken to its obligation to pay its ministers a salary Nia cty One AMPTENNIAN, '23 commensurate with the needs and demands of the profession. But if he is asking himself where he can put l1is life to work where it will count most in the uplift and betterment of humanity, let him give ear to the challenge of the i.'il1'iSii2lI1 Ministry. There is no pro- fession, no line of work, where one can do so much good and con- tribute so much to tl1e cause of humanity as a whole as in the Minis- try. Think of what it means to be an Ambassador of God, entrusted with the preaching of the Gospel of the Son of God to the whole world, set apart to give your time and strength to the establishment of the Kingdom of God among men. No man ever lived who in any way can be compared in greatness with the Son of Goal. A minister is an Ambassador of this man. No life ever meant so much for the world as did His. A minister is in the business of bringing men un- der the intluence of that life. Think of making life sweet. pure. wholesome, happy, peacefulg that is what the Kingdom of God means for men and the minister is a leader in this movement. lVhere can you Iind another profession that counts for as much in the up- lift of humanity and the progress of the Christian civilization ? There is 110116. If you want to get into the biggest business on earth and make your life count for most, this is the profession to enter. Young man, here is your opportunity! REV. I. A. RAUBENI-IoI.n, '09, A CHEMIST. Chemist! At the mention of the profession the layman's eyes widen, the manufacturer snears, and the chemist shakes his head. A traveler in the land of Egypt will see great stretches of desert. If he a superficial observer, as must are, he will travel over the sands for days and consider it uninteresting waste. Behind him there comes another traveler who digs into the waste earth and brings to light the ideas of an ancient and interesting civilization. Just so the layman, handling many kinds of matter from time to time. takes them only for their ostensible value. but the chemist digs into the molecule and unearths its secrets. XVith these secrets at hand. he reforms the molecule on like or similar lines and so, often improves the natural product and multiplies its usefulness. Then, as the superficial travel- er marvels at the open tomb that by chance is along his route, so the layman marvels at what the chemist produces from seemingly simple substances. ABIPTENNIAN, '23 Ninety Two The change of great discoveries i11 delving into the secrets of the molecule is the siren call to all chemists, but still more strong is that call to those who are but considering following the science as a profession. Few chemists are blessed with the resources that permit them to carry on valuable researches in their private labora- tories. Most fall back upon the 1nill owner for a livelihood. and he. not being able to sec so many dollars and cents worth of production llowing from the laboratory, considers the chemist a necessary nuisance who shall be paid only an existence-wage. So, for lack of funds, the majority of chemists never reach the glorious Isle of Research. It may appeal to one's sense of pride to belong to the profession that has done such marvelous things as removing the poisonous constituents of cocaine and thus making a more etfective and less harmful pain deadener: the same profession as is beating nature in the production of beautiful colors. "Are you willing to pay the price of belonging to that profession ?", is the question that should be asked of the student of chemistry: the price of four years of intensive study for which you receive S5100 to 225150 per month in after years. Chemistry is undoubtedly the most fascinating of the sciences because of its universality and its opportunities, yet one must not imagine it leads to the rainbow's end. These are, in a few words, the outstanding facts about the chemist's profession. A true conception of so great a profession cannot be obtained in so few words. but the thoughts expressed may serve to disillusion some with fantastical ideas about what they will do in the field of chemistry.

It was Abraham Lincoln who said, HAH that I am, or hope to be I owe to my aged mother." I might well say that to my mother belongs the credit for my entering the useful and honorable profes- lvlzll cry Three fXMI'TENNIAN, '23 sion of teaching. It was she who helped me plan my future work and who convinced me that the work of a teacher is both useful and honorable. It is proverbial that the pecuniary compensation of the teacher is, in most places, far below the proper standard. It is very much to be regretted that an employment so important in all its bearings should be so poorly rewarded. Such has been the case for a long time in the pastg and, though in many places the people are beginning to open their eyes to their true interest, and are gradually and commendably coming up to their duty, yet the pecuniary compensa- tion does not constitute the chief reward of the teacher. If he will go cheerfully to his work, and tind his daily enjoyment in his daily toil, he must have a higher object-some more elevating, inspiring motive than mere money-getting. The teacher has the consciousness of being engaged in a use- ful and honorable calling. Vllhat though he may not become rich im this worldfs goods? VVl1o would not prefer above houses and lands, infinitely above all the wealth of earth, the consciousness of being: engaged in a work of usefulness? Man was made for us,efulness,, and who would not desire to answer the design of his creation 1' My pen is too feeble to attempt to portray the usefulness of an faithful teacher. He educates the immortal mind, wakes it to thought, trains it to discipline, moves it to truth and virtue, fills it with longings for a more perfect state, and sends it forth to exert its powers for good through all coming time. The teacher instructs: man in the various sciences, and thus displays before him the worlds of' wonderous interest, and invests him with the sources andf means of pure enjoyment. He trains him for the sweet sympathies: of social life, and unfolds before him his duty, duty to himself, his fellow creatures, his family, his God. And how much the faithful' teacher- has to do in fitting man fin' the blissful mansions- ot' the skies! If such be- the teacherls work, where is the limit to his useful-- ness? Yet he may- do this, not for one merely, but tbr scores, or even hundreds. Eternity, alone, can display the ilrrmeasuiwible, in-- conceivable usefiilness of one devoted teacher. Is not the teacherls calling honorable? It is, for its usefulness makes it honorable. To scatter the light of truth is always honor- able. So some of the greatest and best men the world ever saw AINIPTBLNZNIAXE '23, N'i1LCf1lJ F 010' have believed, and have illustrated their faith by their practice. Confucius, Socrates, Seneca, Aristotle and Plato were specimens of the teachers of ancient date. John Milton, Pestalozzi, Arnold, and a host of others have adorned the profession in later times. The works of these men live after them, and will continue to live, when the proud fame of the mighty warriors who have marked their course in blood shall have perished from the earth. The faithful teacher enjoys the approval of heaven. He is em- ployed, if he has a right spirit in a heavenly mission. He is about his Father's business. That man should be made wiser and happier is the will of heaven. To this end the Son of God-the Great Teacher-came to bless our race. So far as the school teacher has the spirit of Jesus, he is engaged in the same great work. In .concluding this article, it is fitting and proper to quote the words of Page who said: "Heaven regards with complacency the humble efforts of the diligent teacher to raise his fellow-beings from the darkness of ignorance and the slavery of superstition, and if a more glorious crown is held ill reserve for one rather than another, it is for him who, uncheered by worldly applause and without the prospect of adequate reward from his fellow-men, cheerfully prac- tises the self-denial of his Master, spending his strength, and doing with diligence and patience whatsoever his hand findeth to do towards raising his fellow-beings to happiness and heaveni' ' RATAPIJ F. SMITH N. H. S. 310 Keystone State Normal '13 llluhlenberg College '21 THE MAKER OF THE STAFF OF LIFE 'fOnce to every man a11d nation, comes the moment to decide." NVQ-all has the poet sung, for these few words have come to mean a. great deal to the present generation. The moment for this decision may come early in life, to some upon graduation from High School, to others upon graduation from college, while to others later in life. WVhen a young man is deciding what profession or business to enter as his life work, it might be well to stop for just a few mo- ments, and consider a few things relative to that forthcoming deci- sion. To begin with, he should choose that business or profession for which, ill his own mind. he is best fitted and which he would en- Nincty Five AMPTENNIAN, '22 joy following as his life Work. Again, would that vocation enable him to beueiit mankind or society to the extent that he feels as though he were doing something worthwhile? To my mind, the Baking lndustry might well be placed in the latter category. There is a certain satisfaction in knowing that you are manufacturing a pro- duct which is the 'fbackbone of civilization." The Staif of Life has nobly done its part for centuries, it has raised generations of men and women, healthy in mind and body. The Holy Scriptures say: "G-ive Us This Day Our Daily Bread," which establishes the fact that since time immemorial, bread has been n1a11's best food. The nation that left the greatest impress on the world for good, left the Ufleshpotst' of Egypt to break bread in the wilderness and since that time practically all the nations of the world have been, primarily, bread eaters. Bread satisfies when nothing else satisiies. NVhen the nectar of the Gods tastes flat and insipid and the victuals of the menu fail to please, then it is, that good, sweet, nutritious bread comes like a ministering angel to put courage a11d spirit into the hearts of men. Arrayed in no delicious frostings, bread wields the scepter in her regal sway. Champion of prince or peasant, at home in cabin or castle, it is indeed the builder of men and of nations. You may hand me a "layout" That is iit for a king. You may serve me with dishes Of everything A chef, the most famous, His arts can employ To give to that meal That high note of joy.

IWANIEL Kocnnu N. H. S. '15 F. K M. '19 AML-TENNIAN, '23 Ninety I C MUSIC "When words were given unto men That they might tell their thoughts again, There still was left a world of thought Beyond the scope that words had wrought, And so God gave them Music, too-- A sweeter process and more true, That they might sense the soul of Love And thus interpret heaven above." -Victor Reese, I have been requested to say in this article just what there was in music that appealed to me sufficiently to make me wish to follow it as a profession. First of all, there is an old saying, "Musicians are born, not madei' This may be true in part, as I do believe that I was born with a very great love for music and a certain degree of aptitude for it. XVhen I was a child I was given a zither for a Christmas gift. This I learned to play without the aid of a teacher, and would amuse myself and my friends by singing and playing my accompani- ments. The strings of this instrument are numbered just as the tones of the major scale, and here I had my first lessons in intervals .and ear-training. After having learned the sound of each string and its number, mother would sing to me slowly familiar tunes, Ellltl I would take them down in figures and afterwards play them. These were my first lessons in written dictation. After having had lessons on an organ and afterward the piano, I finally took the advice of friends, and began studying voice. After ,graduation, I was advised by my parents to go into the teaching profession. After studying several splendid books on pedagogy, I began to realize some of the lofty possibilities of the profession. N ow it would seem only natural, would it not, to choose the subject dearest one's heart to impart others? I cannot refrain from saying a few words about the value of a musical education. ffln the hour of vision, Music gives power and pscope to the imagination, and brings into reality things that were mot." Plato said,"Music is ,a moral law. It gives a soul to the ,Njn cty Senna AMPTENNIAN, '23 universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and light to everything." There is, perhaps, no subject which affords greater possibilities for the three-fold development of body, mind, and soul than the sub- ject of vocal music. Through voice culture we learn correct posture, proper breathing, and correct use of the speaking voice. Anyone who has studied any theory of music whatsoever, will readily see that the study of music affords a wonderful opportunity for the development of the mind. Rhythmic problems, the study of chords, etc., are as valuable for mental development as any subject in, mathematics. And again, when the pupil is ready for it-not before-how interesting it is for him to apply his knowledge of French and German in the interpretation of the wonderful music of these countries! Through the study of voice many are brought face to face with the finest literature of the ages. The wonderful thoughts expressed in many of the sacred and secular songs, anthenis, oratorios, etc., are sure to leave a helpful impression on the mind of the studentg and the harmony itself which is brought out in some of our great masterpieces is sufficient to move to tears even people with imtutored' minds. I am not absolutely sure that everyone would be thrilled by l5ach's Mass in B Minor, but I am sure there are very few who are not impressed by the wonderful chorales in the St. -lohn Passion or- ihe sublime harmony of the choruses sung by the St. Olaf' Choir or- ihe Ifkranian Chorus. The latter need no words to make their music expressive. Of' course, in speaking about the value of' music, we mean the value of good music. There is an in-born desire in almost every human being' to express himself in some way, musically. He may whistle, sing, hum, or play some instrument, and unless we subsit- tute the beautiful in music for crude, valuless music ofthe street and modern dance hall, the value of music to the individual' will not mean much. Music in the public schools, music' memory contests in' high schools, which tend to the proper usage of the talking machine are a great forward step for the creation of a love tbr the best in musici AMY SCHOQLL DEGIKOOT '02 :XMl"l,'l'INNlAX., '232 Nlllffll Eiyhf MINE, OR ANYBODY'S, FOUR YEARS AT COLLEGE Yes-gentle reader-I have been requested to give a college I11tlll,S views of l1is four years at college or at least to explain just what a college means. XVell to begin with, a student just on the verge of graduation is the most inferior artist that one may choose to paint the pictu1-e- NCOLLEGEH-. It is like asking a woman, who has returned from her iirst trip abroad, to give you a picture of what she had seen-and all she can exclaim is beautiful, r:n,iUw1rUL, BEAUTIFUL. The logical artist is he who has sent one or more of his own 'studes' to the 'higher institutions of learning, or one who has swelled an 'endowment fund, or who has spiritually, or materially l mostly materiallyj profited from his knowledge of 'cosinesi, tphil- osophy', or 'embryologyf Four years at college-just about one-half of the usual time served by a criminal for embezzlement-is the maximum college sen- tence of the sons of our "400." But why pick on that type first?- liecause it is that particular set that sounds to the world the wrong note as to what a college really is. Francis Lockwood has said: "To be permitted to go to college is a privilege that few may claim-a privilege too high to measure." But to the clique that has con- vinced itself that its life's 'imeal ticket" is already in its hands-a college education is not an opportunity-not a privilege, but rather a matter of fgood form' to be labelled a 'tcollege man" in their social life. The type just described may be found i11 the American family of mediocre comfort to the wealthiest class inclusive. It is needless to speak of the boy who does not lack energy and ambition but who is ratlier handicapped by his financial straits--and must work night days in a week to obtain his education. To him at college is like a corniield to a farmer-All his energies are spent in developing his mind-the soil which in the future bear its crops. But now let us turn to tl1e representative type-to whom a college is neither four years vaudeville matinee nor a fbrain endur- ance tester! In the vernacular of a college man, he is neither of two extremes-"the social tea hound" nor the proverbial "course crab- her." This student seeks to obtain from his college all that it may utter in building up his later career-hence he nourishes from all its activities. Ninety Niue IXBIPTENNIAN, '23 For the real college 1111111 it is 11ot a question of knowing a mass of facts and formulas, but rather how to weigh and cousider tlllflll. lt is not exactly how many friends l1e has made, but ratl1er through l1is frielidships is iuculcated i11 him tl1e ability to judge and mix with his fellow 11121117 which after all is tl1e key letter of his per- sonality.

This may SCCIII like a simple alge- b1'aic equation, but, i11 order to explain what a college really 11115111157 it is necessary to do a considerable amount of juggling with its conlpoliieut parts. Society, to-day, has enough ftpig iron" to choose from-wl1at she 1l6QllS for l1er progress is pure llil1'Cl-fGIl11J6I'6ll steel, and i11 order to convert the raw Il12ll6I'l2ll she has l7CC11 forced to use education as her lllillll tool. It is i11 the college that this 'tooll reaches its highest elticieiicy. If the Illill'Gl'l2ll is readily worked, tl1e result will be a good finished product. So, despite l5diso11's challenge to the college man, I might say that the four years at college is l1Ot a four-year loaf, but rather tour of the greatest years that 0116 may spend i11 obtaining that Hsome- i.lllllg,,7 that 'tfiuessev which is touud 0lll'Sl'3llIlll1g, as well as valu- able, in the college 111211173 later life.

Its machinery works without a flaw. Quizzes and exams are taken only in the absence of the instructors, although a girl's mark may depend upon one paper, she never thinks of breaking the honor compact made with her classmates. In the basement of Goucher Hall, candies, cakes and apples, sold to raise money for the new college buildings, are left without any other caretaker than a. small poster, 'fljrop a nickel in the slot, or sign your name on the paper if you don't have any change." That one little sign gives the whole keynote of Goucher's Honor System. Eveiything is left in the hands of the students themselves. Outside of the classroom, the faculty has no active part i11 college altairs, unless called upon. It is the girls who attend to all the social, and even business, matters of the school. The spirit of de- mocracy, which pervades Goucher, allows every girl to take her part in what may be termed, running the college. And because every girl has taken her part formerly, and because every girl is taking her part at this moinent, Goucher College is the wonderful place it professes to be. Since the College is in the heart of the great city of Baltimore, there is a chance for every student to show of what metal she is made. The city is full of amusement-theatres, motion picture houses, stores, parks-there is always something to fill up spare time. And yet, when a, Goucher girl is called upon in the name of the College, she always responds readily. For example, at the end of :Spring vacation, many, by 'fcuttingl' possibly not more than two or three classes, could have stayed away until the end of the last weekg but when the College President issued the call for every Goucherite To be present at the great public meeting held April, the sixth, to launch a campaign for Greater Goucher, every girl responded with a 'readiness and a fervor that -showed how much the college and its wvelfa re meant to her. These varied impressions, put together, form the nucleus on -which is based the very life of the college-The Spirit of Goucher. GrERTRUDE Coorne, N. H.

Because of its universal application, the importance of proh- lcms and their solutions, which are encountered in selecting a vo- cation are worthy of consideration. Every one of us has his own convictions relative to this all important phase in l1is life. The per- sonal question is always of relative importance, and the writer does not aim at presenting the following with the idea to offset con- victions of equal importance. It is not presumed to be dogmaticg it is merely a portrayal of what he believes to be the three cardinal principles which may form the basis for an intelligent decision. The estimates which control the final selection are frequently so poorly envisaged by the average high school or college graduate, that an etfort for the creation of a desire for careful analysis and consideration on the part of those making the choice of their life's work will be worth while. Too often, this all important consideration is left to chance, with its attendant harassing consequences and ultimate failure for the individual. Boys and girls, young men and young women, with- out any prospective analysis, launch their careers upon a road-way of work for which they possess no natural personal aptitude, or for which they have neither the intellectual qualities nor the mental furnishings which are requisites to a successful issue. In the short space which is allotted, an endeavor will he made to present some of the phases, which, in the opinion of the writer, are worthy some consideration. In choosing a profession, the individual will naturally place hefore himself several questions which call for careful diagnosis. Important among this large array are three which deserve especial attention and analysis. First: Does the vocation in question offer me unlimited' chance for social service, and, if it does, am I capable to render efficiently the expected services 'Z' Second: Does the vocation in question allow me to grow into- a, greater' degree of usefulness, and develop me mental- ly, morally, physically and spiritually? Third: Does service in the vocation remunerate me sufficient- ly to make it possible for me to defray expenses inci- AAIIJTp1NN1ixX,x ,QS 011-C ll flffd TLU07 dent to the means by which I wish to grow into a larger and more influential personality as specified above? Does the vocation I am choosing permit me to serve? During the war, and since its close, conscientious men and women have been choosing those lines of work for which they found themselves best fitted and in which the largest promise of social service pre- sented itself. Men, everywhere, and in all professions, are becoming cognisant of the fact that success in life is not one hundred per cent. correllative with the dollar. The motives which have prompted the world's greatest men for untiring service for the welfare of their fellow-men, and the reward which bears no price mark commensur- able in the monetary system of any country among the worldis na- tions is the type of satisfaction and remuneration which is stirring the hearts and souls of the world's greatest thinkers and workers. Satisfaction and mental composure so frequently absent when a men, for physical or other reasons, withdraws from the field of activity, could well be assured of their realization in the crucial days of life, if the desire for social service had dominated their moments of selection in earlier life. Does the vocation under consideration give me opportunities for growth? Failure usually follows upon the heels of the individual who enters upon a type of work which presents no opportunities for personal enlargeincnt, or, where the possibilities for growth are 1,-I' such character wherein he finds himself incapacitated as a conse- quence of faulty preparation either mentally or physically. Fitness for growth must characterize the individual as a prerogative for success. Theodore Roosevelt, born with a sickly body, poor eye- sight, average intelligence, and an impedient in his speech, grew into manhood possessing a vigorous and healthy body, trained his eye so that he became an accurate inarksman and a mighty l1u11ter, trained his mind so that he became one of the world's greatest thinkers and easily the most voluminous reader, and overcame his speech defect to the extent that he became a powerful public speak- er. The man whose endownments at birth seemed to commit hi1n to a, life of obscurity, rose, by personal growth resulting from the best type of living. to the pinnacle of American and world achieve- ments. Too many high school and college trained men and women allow themselves to lapse into a lethargy where contentment with their attendant status is so pleasing that it rots the desires for Om' ffl!-'Illl7'l'll Th-ree LLXDIPTENNIAN, '23 continued enrichment of themselves or those attributes which con- tribute to their personal welfare and the happiness of their fel- lows. The wife of a great statesman, when asked to write an cpitaph to be cut on the tombstone of her husband, wrote: "He died growing." This, she considered, the finest tribute to his memory. Does the vocation remunerate me sufficiently to permit me to grow? In another part of this treatise it has been mentioned that success is not one hundred per ce11t. correlative with the dollar. It will always be true that there are those who seek that profession at the end of which is displayed the largest financial gain and in that proportion measure the success or failure of themselves or their fellows. Truly every man or woman in choosing his life's work will find it necessary to consider the financial reward for his or her services, but this consideration dare not be made without paying due respect to those estimates mentioned above. The ability to grow, for instance, requires an outlay of finances which is necessary for the attainment of the best. The requisite for adequate financial return is well evidenced, today, in the teaching profession. Every- where communities are expecting more and Inore from their teachers, and this request is meeting splendid responses from the large num- bers of teachers and school administrators who out of their year's savings are making outlays of several hundred dollars, every year, that they may grow and become more influential and useful in their work. Adequate finances are necessary for growth and for service, but the accumulation of wealth does not always indicate success. At no time in the history of the world has the need for careful selection been more imperative. The choice should be made by ex- ercising the greatest care. In no other way can the gross inequali- ties, so often existing between the position and the incumbent, be overcome and our communities be assured of that high level of service, which effective democracy needs above all else, and which a pervasively efficient system of public welfare demands.
