polmfem, IAYMPTENNIAN, '24
Ghostlike silence reigned-it was midnight and one of those alluring
times when, after the twilight is falling and the moon is sailing across the
heavens, nature-lovers are beckoned out of doors. I wandered idly in an old
fashioned garden wherein grow pansies of rare species and incomparable beauty.
I seated myself upon a moss-covered log and dreamed of the happy past.
Swish! Swish! and a rustle of the leaves. Could my eyes be deceiving me?
No, for down the brick garden path tripped myriads of fairies who were out
for their Midnight Revel. I heard the patter of little feet and saw the glitter
of many jeweled wands. A beautiful sight it was! These tiny creatures clad
in fllmy garments of rainbow hues, flitted in and out among the flowers. Dart-
ing tirctlies served as littl torch-bearers.
At length, the little wood nymphs grouped about a fairy more beautiful
than all the rest and with wands uplifted. sang HHail, Queen of the Future!"
A twitter i11 the branches above attracted n1y attention and when I again
turned my eyes to the scene of merry-making, all had vanished save the pro-
claimed Queen. She wandered through the garden until she approached a
bed, set. apart from all the rest. She paused and suddenly lifted her studded
wand and counted the blossoms as she pointed them out, one by one. Yes, there
were forty-three! "Strange," thought I, "hut could it be that this quaint
little fairy could depict the future of my classmates?" True enough! for I
watched with eagerness as she daintly touched the posy in the center of the
bed with her wand. Straining my ears, I heard her say in a sweet voice: 'AI
see a. small, neatly furnished studio and before an uneompleted masterpiece
stands a diligent young artist, Dorothy Nicholas, surveying the products of
her labor. Seated on a raised platform, are two maids, Helen O'Loughlin and
Irene Eckert, evidently models for the artist."
VVith pleasure beaming on her face, she touched the next posy: "A French
shoppe comes before my eyes. I see Elsie Koehler, a raven-haired woman, tall
and dignified. designing gowns in the heart of a great city, Paris perchance."
The fairy pondered a while then placing her wand on the next Hower con-
tinued: "A large hospital in London, I see. Withiii its Walls, is a young doctor,
William Hartzell, who is ardently struggling to save human lives. In the
ehildren's ward, is a cheerful nurse, Lillian Stettler, who is sacrificing all to
accomplish o11e end-Service .
I was enraptured with the descriptions this little wood nymph had given
and I listened on in silence.
VVith satisfaction, the fairy continued her message to an unknown auditor:
HI see a modern gymnasium in a. large educational institution and hear com-
mands, firm but kind, given by the instructor, Marguerite Berg. I see a paral-
lel group of boy athletes who have become stalwart and sturdy under the cap-
able supervision of Willarcl Snyder."
rkMl"l'lSNNIAN, ,24 Fifteen
Again she befvan: 'AI see a well mana-'fed bank with XVeslev Kuntz as Presi-
C D F' A
dent. In the corner at a desk is Margaret Koeher and the operator of the type-
writer, I see, is XVarren Manta. At the teller 's window is Lillian Boil."
Again she went on: HI see a beautiful church, and Enos Eckhart stands on
the pulpit. Dorothy Kern is presiding at the organ. 1 hear the rich tone of a
soprano from one, Margaret Meighan."
Suddenly l felt a sense of pride as l. realized that my class mates filled
nearly all the imported stations of life.
tlontinuing her story: Htnleorge Reiehard is delivering an interesting talk
at a large Chautauqua. Adele Ileyman follows his applause with her selec-
tions of humorous and dramatic selections."
My little friend 's wand alighted o11 another blossom: '5l see two world re-
nowned scientists in. a. laboratory-Arthur Benson and Louis Aptifel. John
Bower, a chemist, is i11 the room with them."
I was startled, for morning was about to break.
The fairy queen tlitted to another corner of the bed and began: "I see two
wonderful coaches in large schools. Lo! They are Lane and Zinnnerman.
Again, a keenly contested basketball game with decision rendered quickly and
fairly by the referee, Sterling Miller.'l
The little prophetcss went on hurriedly: "Young American eitizens were
being directed in the right path by the 'sehool-mai-ms', Ethel Mohrey and
Thelma Shirk, the Art Supervisor being Marian Kline, the Music Supervisor,
Iiillian Laros and the kindergarten teacher 1 see is Katherine Pryef'
Soon again the fairy spoke: "W'ires-Ah! A broadcasting station. VVil-
hurt Marsh is the announcer. A burst of song and I see Anna Kelly, the famous
vocalist Mabel Frahle is now accompanying the famous violinist l4'rankl.in
Rice. In a cottage with his family sits Erwin Braker listening to the concert,
a.nd in an adjoining farmhouse I see Evelyn Peters, now a prosperous mistress,
about to tune in."
The ,jeweled wand again alighted on a posy and she murmured: "I see
Camp Fire Girls camping at Sliawnee-on-the-Delaware. There, l see, are Julia
Piatak and Verna Iierchf'
Skipping on to the last group, she started: "I see a large prosperous town
and an efficient assessor, Dorothy Hilberg, who is busy assessing the property
in the town. Again-I see a large theatre with George Dilliard as manager,
and in the ticket office is Ruth Koeh, who is serving her UIIIPTKJXCIJS patrons.
The wheels of the great Atlas mills are kept working, aided by the efforts of
the clerical work of Ruth Boyer and Mae Gougherf'
The wee queen continued: "I see o11e, Jesse Herbster, making a world 's
record flight around the world in a massive plane."
This little prophet. perchanee, had often visited the Iligh School and was
eager to see how my elass mates would fare when out on Iiitfe's great sea.
Suddenly. I heard her call, 'tRuth Hills" and I was doubly interested to
see what future lay before me, when the sun rose from her resting place in the
east and my fairy friend darted away.
Si.1'!ef1z ,X xi rriix Niixx, '14
This bashful chap comes from our neighboring
"cily"-Coplay. Somehow, after completing his high
school course at that place he felt the need of more
education, hence he joined the class of '24. Although
"Louie" is not fond of the opposite sex, he has be-
come a steadfast friend of the test-tube. On the
whole, he is a bright fellow. He says he is going
to win the world's champion walking title after he
graduates. Here's wishing him a swift "walk" to
success in his new endeavor as an electrical engineer.
JOHN FREDERICK BAUER
John has assumed the name of "radio-bug" lately
and so we do not see him on the street as much
of late as we did. "Johnny" has a "bunch" of friends
throughout High School and delights them with
many wise sayings. He served the -Class Basketball
Team during his fourth year and much credit must
be given him for our victories. Altho he has held
no class offices during his career in High we feel
that we would miss him much if he had quit school.
"Johnny" belongs to that well known organization
of "l-Tappa-Kegs' and we believe he must he one
of the foremost. members. John intends taking up
mechanical engineering and our wishes for success
go with him.
L P 'ago LILLIAN HENR1E'1"rA BEIL
"Lil" is a very quiet girl, but when she -Sets
started laughing it's hard to make her stop. 'Lil
is a good student and always ready to give 21 helli-
ing hand. "Lil's,' chief motto is "Never all0W YOHT
studies to interfere with your pleasure."
, However, "Lil" is business like and 7221135 the
typewriter keys and takes shorthand dictationlat a
surprising rate of speed. Lillian was one ot the
chief characters in "Springtime" and displayed good
dramatic ability. "Lil" has expressed a wish to he-
come her Dad's "stenog." Wishes from the class
of '24 for luck.
ARTHUR WILSON BENSON
Here is Arthur, always around where help is
needed. Although he has not shown his skill in
athletics, other than tennis, he has been active in
every other line of work. To begin with he is a
very good student in most subjects. Next to that
he is a good speaker. Ho showed us this by taking
the second prize in the contest. He began, however,
as a member of the Junior debating team. This year
he took an important part in the class play and in
"Springtime," "Benny" is the kind of classmate we
need because he is always willing to do his share
and even some one e1se's share of work. His posi-
tion on the staff shows his ability as a business man
MARGUERITE MAY BERG
Bergy entered our class in the freshman year,
and during these four years she has won many
friends Qespecially among the opposite sexi. She
represented our class as the "star Basketball player"
and played on the Varsity Team for four years, of
which she was chosen captain during her third year.
She joined the School Betterment Association and
was an assistant to the Jest Editor for the Ampten-
nian. "Bergy,' took the commercial course, but she
does not expect to pursue in that line of work. She
expects to go to Stroudsburg State Normal School
and specialize in Physical Training. Due to her
splendid athletic ability shown to us during these
and a, faithful worker.

Altho she did not display her talent in her high
school career, she has a great deal within her. Some
day, tif she doesn't settle down as "Somebody's

an entirely new system of shorthand, or the inventor
of an "easy to operate" typewriter. Vvhatever your
future, the class of '24 wishes you success.
ERVVIN ROY BRAKER
ville. "Braker" is liked by all his classmates, and
is a good-natured sort of fellow, even though he does
lose his temper once in a while.
At Iirst, "Braker" seemed to be modest and stud-
ions, but after his first year ot high school he started
in at diiferent-course. "Braker" was interested in
Basketball, securing a position as forward on the
class team. He, also, took part in track work, and
won the Marathon in his second year in high school.
"Braker" desires for his future lite have as yet
not been made known, but whatever career he will
follow, his classmates are certain that success Will
be with him.
G ICUQQBI ltOBER'l' DILLIARD
Look upon this ambitious young man. He is
one of the commercial students and is the tallest in
the class. being only 6 ft. 3 in. in height. "Dilly"
is a very quiet sort ot fellow but believes in getting
loud once i11 a while. He was, until lately the best
"meter" we had to support the basketball team, but
has decided to take "ilivvers" apart instead. VVe
hope he enjoys himself. "Dilly" has planned to be-
come a master meclianic and we wish him,1uck. Al-
though he held no oltices and has not taken part in
athletics. we are proud of him.

Irene joined the ranks of our class, coming hefef
from Allentown, and proved a valuable addition to it.
Her smile and her ever willingness to work have
earned for her many friends which, we believe, will
remain friends to the end. . D D
Irene, during her stay in this institution, has
been very active. She took part in the Class Play,
"Springtime," and was a member of the S. B. A. tor
four years, serving as its Secretary -in her Senior

ment of the Amptennian and is an ardent member

ENOS ELSWORTH ECKHART
"The Louse" is one of those "Third Ward Chaps"
who entered the High School four years ago. Then,
he was one of the quiet, studious boys, but now in-
stead of taking an active part in athletics, he is
satished to go to the game and root for the team
and use the surplus amount of energy to annoy the
t'eachers with his continual talking.
VVhen "Eeny" found that the best thing he could
do -was talk he decided to make his talking worth-
while and was one of the four boys chosen for the
Ora-torical Contest. I-Ie also had one of the leading
parts in.the Class Play.
"Eeny" has now completed his course and ex-
pects to become a prominent member of a large busi-
ness Iirm sometime in the future.
Success to you "Eeny" old chap-adieu.
MABEL VIOLET FRABLE
Mabel is a very quiet girl when certain teachers
are around but "oh my" that third period in the
morning certainly is used by Mabel and her friends
by telling what occurred over the week-end. Her
greatest pleasures are piano playing, dancing, enter-
taining friends and roaming to Laury's.
However, she is business-like and taps'the type-
writer keys and writes shorthand at a surprising
rate. She won the fifty-word bar which proves to
us her ambition for commercial work which she has
Mabel intends to work for some large automo-
bile company, especially one that is specializing in
Fords. We wish you the best of success "Bubble,"

entered high school, but after two years of study

WILLIAM KUNTZ HARTZELL
Four years ago the portals of Northampton High
School werempened and this young fellow was ad-
mitted into the Class of '24. 'tBill" was a bit bash-
ful, but he has been cured of that. He took an ac-
tive part in Athletics, having been a member of the
Class Basketball :team for four years and has held
down the initial sack on the diamond. He was class
president this year, treasurer of the Black and
Orange, and was a Contest Speaker. He took the
leading role in,"Springtime" and is a member of the
Amptennian Staff. William has an attractive per-
sonality and formed many friendships while in high
school. He intends taking up medicine. We wish
JESSE JOHN HERRSTEB
Would you believe that this insignificant, digni-
fied piece of humanity belonged to our class? -ell,
if you believe it, you're right, and let no one tell you
otherwise, "Jess" came to us four long years ago,
a bright scholar and destined to become one ofithe
first in the class, but, his eyes were rolled in the
direction of the feminine sex and he fell - but he
didu't hurt himself. "Chessie" is a faithful member
of the "U-Needa-Biscuit Crew" and at the present
time resides in the peaceful community of Orrnrod.
Altho holding no class offices, nor partaking in any
athletics, Jesse has always been a faithful worker for
the class. We found that Jesse frequents town quite
often and we wonder why? We do not know what
Jesse intends taking up after his High School career
is ended but we wish him great success. , 1
ADELE LAURA HEYMAN
Hold your hats! here we have the talker of our
class. Adele talks and then talks some more, but
her talking has not always been in vain, for she
talked the judges into giving her first prize in the
Oratorical Contest and in giving her side the deci-
sion in the Inter-Class Debate, She had important
parts in "Cherry Blossom," "Springtime" and demon-
strated 'her ability as an elocutionist at the Spring
Concerts. Adele shows good class spirit and is a
faithful friend. She was an active member of the
class B. B. team, a member of Campfire, and Jest
Editor for the Black and Orange. She intends to
pursue for work in oral expression at some higher
institution next year.
DOROTHY RUTH HILBERG
This young maid is an active member oi the
class of 1924. Dorothy is a very quiet girl, but she
always has a large number of friends. She has for
her motto, "Be ready and be on time" and she has
shown this by being a studious pupil and attending
school every day in t.he four successive years. "Dot"
has been a very faithful student and is always ready
to help others when they are in need, if it is pos-
sible for her to do so. Her future ambition is to
' become a stenographer for some large lirm and the
best wishes of her classmates go with her.
RUTH ANNA HILLS
We feel proud to have in our midst this charm-
ing young girl who has always been a faithful worker
for the class. Her initials signify her happiness.-
Ruth was a member of S. B. A., Secretary of the
class '24, class editor in 1923, Secretary and Presi-
dent of S. B. A. and a faithful member of that
organization for four years, She was also President.
of the, Campfire Organization.
"Denny" was alternate in the interclass debate
in '23'ancl an Oratorical speaker in '24. Ruth likes

As Celeste in the senior class play, Meg. in "The
Gypsy Rover" and Primrose in "Springtime" Ruth
made a big hit.
"Denny'.' is an excellent typist, having won sev-
eral medals for speed and accuracy. Ruth intends
taking up Commercial teaching. 'We wish her suc-
What's in a name? '
She is no one else but the "Vamp," for she so
cleverly took that part in "Springtime" She is one
of the two pursuing the "Special Course" .in N. H.
For four years she was a staunch supporter of the
Girl's Glee Club. During her Junior Year she played
as center for the Girls' Varsity Team.
XVe have often wondered why Anna has not been
present at our B. B. games of late, but we believe
Catasauqua is the reason i?J If at any time you
meet a girl 5 ft. 7 in. with brown eyes and brown
hair, you will know it is "Banana," our favorite
.nickname for her. Anna expects to continue her
study at West Chester, so that she may keep the
next generation educated. We hope she will suc-

MARIAN D. KLINE
Everyone knows Marian as the girl with the
black curls and brown eyes. As an active partici-
pant in all school aifairs, she held her place on the
Girls' Varsity basketball team, as secretary of the
class in her Junior year, and enthusiastic Camp Fire
Girl, but of all these qualifications speaking seems
to be her forte, for besides giving numerous readings
throughout her high school life, she won second
prize at the Senior Oratorioal Contest. She expects
to continue her diligent studying at the Keystone
State Normal School next year, and we know she
will make as many friends there with her pleasant
smile as she made in her school life in Northamp-
DOROTHY M. KERN
Dorothy is the class of 24's only representative
from Kreidersville. She travelled to N. H. S. every
day in her "Henrietta" and is quite an accomplished
chauffeur by thisf time. This, however, isn't Dot's
only accomplishment, as she plays the piano exceed-
ingly well, having played in the N. H. S. orchestra
for three years. She was accompanist at several
spring concerts, the Cantata, "Pan," several oper-
ettas and did a. great deal of solo work. "Dot" is
music editor of this book and also one of the
Woanwi Camp Fire Girls. She is a good sport, full
of fun and well-liked by everyone. She will con-
tinue her studies in music at the Damresch School
in New York next winter. Her whole heart and
soul being in that work, we know that success will
surely crown her efforts.
RUTH MAY KOCH
This shy young Miss came to us four long years
ago, but somehow the surroundings did not change
her demureness, for she is still very quiet. She en-
tered N. H. S. in the fall of 1920. The balmy breezes
must have blown her to this school, after having
moved from Kreidersville. She naturally takes
things as they come and does not worry about the
results. Although she does not take part in any
class affair, she is always willing to offer her assist-
ance, especially in typewriting. She can also handle
the typewriter rather skillfully, having won one of
the medals. Her chief hobbies are dancing, walk-
ing, and attending the Allentown shows C?J. Ruth
expects to become a private stenographer for a large
MARGUERITE ELLEN KOCHER
This fair young maiden comes to us from our
neighboring town, Cementon, and is proud of it.
Marguerite shows a, good class spirit and is always
ready to lend a hand. She has been an active worker
during her four years in high school and does 11ot
have time to bother the male sex. She is very quiet,
but when it comes to studying and giving recita-
tions she is one of the best. She also has charge
of most of the Senior candy. Marguerite and Evelyn
are good pals, where you find one you are sure to
find the other. She expects to become an expert
stenographer in some large business firm. "Margie"
you may be sure the class of 1924 wishes you suc-
ELSIE MAY KOHLER
Ah! what do We see here? To be sure if it
isn't Elsie. Elsie entered high school in September,
1920. At first, she seemed very' bashful, but after
making friends we find her busily engaged in talk-
ing and laughing. She still holds on to her old idea
of becoming an expert stenographer. She has proved
to be very industrious while attending school.
She took a principal part in the Senior Class
play, as a prominent member of the Campfire, and
is also chief entertainer of the Indispensable Four.
"Elsie" has shown us that she is capable of hold-
ing a position in an office by working for the DeLong

"Wes" hails from Treichlers and has shown us
the qualities that pure air develops. He proved him-
self a good sport all through the four years, inas-
much he was a. member ot the basketball team and
was partly responsible for the winning of the cup
by the Class of '24. His best year in N. H. S. is the
last one. We are sure he will never regret it. "Wes"
is our Class Treasurer and steadily has shown us a
good example of Class spirit. His efforts are untir-
ing, as has been shown in all our sales and cam-
paigns, candy-magazines, Class play, and other ac-
tivities. If there is money any place, there also is
"Wes," for he has firmly established himself in our
good faith. "Wes" is going to Cornell and we wish
him the same success that he has attained in N. H. S.

LILLIAN B. LAR.os l
"Lil" has been a faithful worker throughout her
four years at N. H. S. Among the many important
offices she so successfully held, that of Class Treasi
urer, Secretary of the Camp Fire and Assistant Class
Editor-are the most outstanding. "Lil" was one
who could always be depended upon and took an
active part in plays and operettas, having roused
the public by her line acting as "Abigail" in "Spring-
time," She also featured as "Alice" in the class
play and was a booster of the Girls' Glee Club. Last
but not least we may speak of her accomplishment
as a Celloist. Sl1e intends to enter West Chester

musical course. May success await you "Lil,"

' This little lass belongs to our 1924 Class. Verna

WARREN LEROY MANTZ
'i'II'mz. tsy "
YVarren came to Northampton High four years
ago, a very bashful boy, from Laury's. But now,
we just can't keep from telling you he's changed
like all the rest of the boys. He's sure to be heard
tho he isn't always seen. r
"Muntzy" is, however, a diligent worker in his
studies and writes shorthand very well. He is an
accomplished typist, having captured several medals.
One of his best hobbies is to take a ride on the
Laurys-Oementon Express. Warren expects to "land"
a job with some big manufacturing plant and we
know he'I1 succeed.
VVILBERT EUGENE MARSH
NVhen "Happy" entered High School in Septem-
ber 1920, as a recruit from Kleppingefs Corner, he
was just considered as an ordinary school boy, but
during his four years in school, he has earned the
honor of being one of the three tallest in the class.
At the annual Held day events in 1923 "Happy"
was one of the two who won a prize for having the
highest score in his class. He also played first
clarinet in the High School Orchestra for two years.
As "Happy" is taking up a course in wood turn-
ing in connection with his commercial work, we do
not know what he expects to do after graduating,
but we are sure he will succeed in any undertaking.
Wishes for good luck go with you "Happy,"
MARGARET MARY MAGDALENE MEIGHAN
M fl y y'ic"
"Maggie" hails from the lower end of town and
is quite proud to live 011 Dewey Avenue. She is
quite popular in High School and enjoys a host of
friends. She was always active in all school events.
She took a leading part in our class play, 'Spring-
time," and i11 the operettas during her four years
in High School. She is one of the business man-
agers of the Alnptennian and we owe the success
of our Oyster Supper to her.
"Maggie" was a member of the Senior Girls'
Basketball team. Margaret deserves a lot of credit
for her singing. She sings like a Silver-throated
Opera Singer. We would like to see her make use
of her musical talent, but she has decided to become
one of the few women engineers. Well! The Class
of '24 wishes her all the luck in the world.
ETI-IEL LYDIANN IVIOHREY
Yes, the accompanying physiognomy is that of
Ethel Mohrey. Ethel breezecl into the High School
four years ago, and has not missed a day of come
tardy since. She is fond of basketball, cheering,
and cheerleaders. As a. Freshman she was substi-
tute on the varsity and the last three years she held
down the position of guard with the invincible six.
Among other things, Ethel belongs to the Campfire,
makes herself heard in S. B. A., and ably played
the part of Mrs. Herrick in the class play. Ethel
intends to become a pedagogue and will continue her
studies next year at Kutztown Normal School. Judg-
ing from her past record we are confident of her
STERLING WILLIAM MILLER
Sterling entered our ranks four years ago and
now look at him. He's been very busy these four
yea.rs despite many hardships. He was a member
of Student Council, "Boss" of the Oyster Supper,
and a member of the orchestra during the iirst and
second years in High School. During '23 and '24 he
played a forward position on the basketball team
and with his "buddy" incorporated "the famous"
"Miller to Young pass." It was this pass that de
feated some of the best scholastic teams in the
valley. "Sterly" is well known among the pupils of
High and also about town. XVe are very proud of
him and we hope to see the day when "Bert" will
be managing some big store.
DOROTHY LOUISE NICHOLAS
'tNicky." the artist of the class, has been a very
active member throughout her high school career.
She has served as a member of the stait for four
years. As Class Editor, Stafl' Artist, Class Historian
of the Black and Orange, an-cl Assistant Editor-in
Chief of the Amptennian, she has been a great suc-
cess. In her studies she is unexcelled, and as an
artist she is very capable and obliging, She designed
the high school seal, and supplies posters whenever
needed. ln years to come she hopes to be a profes-
sional designer, and the class predicts great success
for her. For we all know from experience that what-
ever she undertakes will be a success.
EVELYN BOYER PETERS
What is that muflied tone we hear ,coming from
the rear of the room in study periods? It requires
only one guess-Evelyn is giggling. Evelyn is one
of Laury's most prominent young ladies. She be-
came a member of our group in 1919, when we were
still in Eighth Grade. Although she is always will-
ing to participate in fun, she never lets good times
interfere with her lessons.
In the tive years that she has been in the North'
ampton Schools, she didn't miss a day. Her school
and class spirit is on a high standard. She added
quite a sum of money to the class treasury by selling
candy, magazines, advertisements, etc. Evelyn has
become well acquainted with a large number of
friends, who wish her a happy and prosperous life
in the future.
HELEN BERNICE O'LOUGHLIN
An athlete, a tomboy, a schoolgirl,-but a 1001,
woman, withal. That's Helen.
An athlete-to be sure! "Bobby" was a member
of the Girls' Basketball Team for tour years and
was loyal to her Alma Mater as such,
A schoolgirl-while occupying this station, she
called to the attention of her 'class-mates and friends
the hidden talent of public speaking as was evident
by her success as an Inter-Class Debater, as "Miss
Somebody Else" in the class play and by her por-
trayal of "The Music Master" in the Contest.
Helen is a born leader-so say those who knew
her while she was President of Council, Treasurer
of S. B. A. and Literary Editor of the Black and
Orange and Amptennian.
Naturally, Helen has many friends who hope that
her future will be a bright one.
JULIA DOROTHY PIATAK
"Shall I slap you?" is a favorite saying of this
Miss. Julia comes from Newport and is proud of it.
She has proven to us that Newport can produce
just as good stenographers as can New York. She
is a veryquiet girl and has a sweet disposition which
ha.s won for her many friends. Julia is very fond
of typewriting and often one can hear her say,
"Verna, let's typewrite next period." As a member
of the Woanwi Campfire she is very active in all
its undertakings. She expects to become a steno-
grapher to some large business firm, Success to
you, dear classmate.

This young manvupon entering high school was
extremely stuclious and quiet, but in the last few
years he has completely changed, i. e., in quietness.
"Ike" has always been an ardent supporter of basket-

ager of the High School Team. In the same year
he was elected President of the class and also Editor-

This young 1na11 will not need an introduction,
because of his popularity. He was very studious
and devoted much time to his studies. He was a
faithful member of the orchestra and served four
years in this organization. He is a talented artist
with the violin. In his Junior year he entered the
Field Day Events, and carried iirst honors. He was
a member of the class Basketball team. His future
is to become a student in an Observatory ot Music.
THELMA MAY SHIRK
This charming brown eyed girl is deserving of
the highest praise. She is not only attractive of
face and manner but intelligent as well. XVe wil-
lingly confess that she has remained true to the
Senior colors constantly, although ambitious in her
studies and an active member of the Camp Fire. We
tease Thelma a great deal, simply to see her laugh
and her diinple. One of her many accomplishments
is to make delicious fudge tMmmmJ. She hopes to
become proprietress of a cozy little tearoorn, some
day, where motorists can stop and partake of dainty
sandwiches and enjoy the picturesque surroundings.
VVILLARD DAVID SNYDER
At last we've come to him, who so bashfully
entered High School four long years ago. But look
at him now, does he look bashful? I don't think so.
"Bill" took an active part in all school activities,
he was "Bert" in the class play, one of our star
tennis players, a good basketball player, having
played guard in '23 and forward in '24. He is also
our star pitcher for the baseball team and we look
to him to "come through" this year with the "goods"
He has charge of the Athletic Department of this
book, allfl was a "swell Dancer" in "Springti1l1e."
The girls call him "Bashful" for a nickname but

so well because of his red cheeks. He expects to

LILLIAN CATHERINE STETTLER
Lillian joined our class four years ago and in
this time she has not missed one day. She has been
a member of the S. B. A. for two years and has been
very faithful in her work. She is an active member
of the Woanwi Camp Fire and has received the three
required ranks. She has done ber duty selling candy,
magazines, etc., for both the Camp Fire and the
Class. She has been a good student and always has
her lessons prepared. At the beginning of the Senior
year she decided to take up nursing instead of com-
mercial work. YVe wish her the best of success in
her chosen profession.
PAUL NEVIN ZI MMERM AN
"Son" started his High School career, a very
quiet boy. "Son" as we know him was a "chap"
never to molest the female sex. He however took
an interest in athletics, especially Basketball. In his
Freshman and Sophomore years he served as center
for hisclass team. In the season of 1922-23 he
showed his ability as a center, and has served in
that position for the last two years.
"Son" is a very studious boy and in study periods
we can Gnd him buried in a. book which has nothing
to do with his Business Law.
Upon leaving our sight he intends to take up
stenographic work in some large office in Cementon.

Tramp! Tramp! Here come the merry -lnniors ag'ain. They 're always in
soniething. lt they 're not in bed, you may be sure of finding them in trouble.
--No! The Juniors are not in bed, nor in trouble, hnt are in action.
Three Years ago, the H,Ll'1'P0ll7' elass of '25 sneaked into the N. ll. S. with-
out any noise. Of course. they were afraid of the Seniors then. That first
year the action of 'A 25" was rather smooth, hnt not slow. Anyway we sur-
vived that year without serious loss, and with nineh gaineld.
The next: year, the Hsophs' lot '25 heeanle a little more aetive, lVhile
some ol' them worked others slept, and while these slept, the others worked.
S0 at least we had someone working for ns all the thne. lVe began to be ae-
enstonled to the HlI'Ctll1ll0lll1U we reeeiyed from our sister elass of '24g and so
we walked the halls with a feeling of ainhition and selif-attaininent.
Now! We are the .luninrsl We are ot' the "upper elassmen" set. Don't1 we
feel proud? f'ertainly we do. Naturally so, lint this will not "put the damper"
on our fnrnaee ol' aetion and aeeoinplislnnent. We have ehosen onr elass eolors

CLASS HISTORY, '26
The year of H1235 found quite a few of the Sophomore Class back to continue
their studies within the walls of Northampton Iligrh School.
The orchestra has seven nxeinbers of oinr class. They are: Beatrice Schoen-
eberger, Pianistg Paul Wolfgang, Arthur Schaeffer, Vvllllillll Dries, Violinistsg
Arthur Rabert, Clarionetistg Myles Miller, Fliltist. and Fred Reiter, Saxaphone.
Some of our members were chosen to represent their Alina Mater on the
basketball team, while others took part in winning' the inter-class cup.
The day before school closed for the Uhristinas holidays, the Freslnnen and
SOPll0l'110l'GS debated, the question being, Hlfesolzfefl, That the U. S. should retain
permanent possession of the Philippine lslandsf' The Sophs won by a unani-
mous vote on the part of the judges.
The play, HS1J1'lDgl'i1l16,H gave some of the members of our class a Cll2l11CC
to Show their stage ability. The Sophs xrere very loyal and contributed some
inenlbers to the S. B. A. The girls proved their talent in cooking by having Cafe-
teria every Tuesday and Thursday in the Domestic Science rooms. AS we are
nearing the end of our Sophomore year, we hope to find in the next two years the
key to a more prosperous future.
During our Freshman year many took parts in plays or instrumental work.
ln the "Gypsy Rover," six ineinbers of our class had parts in that play. We had
a good class basketball team, but we found that it was not strong enough to Win
the Inter-Class cup. When school opened its doors at the beginning of this term,
several of the lnelubers of our class did not return, having decided negatively in
their debate on UEdueation altfords a person more than to leave sehoolf'

THE NARROW ESCAPE

women. Nothing lured l1im beyond thinking agirl pretty, a good dancer, or

a good sport. lu
him. But that was before Mariann Jones' guest had arrived. After that in-
cident Richard Anderson could no longer claim .indifference toward the eternal
feminine. . U
The whole town awaited the arrival of Mariann Jones' guests expectantly.
lllariann had roomed with her at college, and it had even been runiored in Louis-
ville that it was this roommate who had taught Mariann to blow "rings"-
an art which she soon lost in the smug, complacent Louisville. Nevertheless.
the town eonsoled itself in thinking that, the young lady in, question would
soon succumb to the wholesome charm of Louisville, as had her roommate,
The long train from the East glided majestieally into the little wooden
station of Louisville, and out of one of the .Pullman coaches stepped a young
girl in a startling vivid red hat: a short, black dressg very thin black silk hoseg
a shiny pair of blaek patent leather pumps. and last of all, clasped in her
arms was a small black object who gazed at the surrounding world with interest.
Mariann, rushing down the rickity platform to meet her friend, drew
back in horror-a monkey in Louisville! Never, never again would the town
settle down tozits gossip of Mrs. Sllllll17S bull L'pup," or Mrs. 'l'hompson's prize
angora kitten-nevertheless, Mariann exclaimed over her friend, the monkey,
and the foreign-labeled traveling bags. But deep in her heart, she felt that
Louisville was about to receive a horrible jolt.
Richard Anderson, sanntering languidly into the station for a package of
cigarettes, turned a.rouud suddenly to find his tie grabbed by the black claw
of a, small monkey. f'VVhat the ---" he exclaimed.
"Oh, Richard," burst out Mariann, "1 want you to meet Miss Billy
Rowans, from New Yorkfl . -
For the irst time Dick Anderson turned his indiiferent eyes toward the
stranger. Then he gasped. blushed. and his heart felt as though it had rolled out
on the Hoor at Miss Billy Rowans' daintily shod feet. He bowed and asked if
he might not drive them home.

"No, I'm afraid you can tt do thatf' replied the guest, in what Dick Ander-
son thought to be a delightfully new variety of feminine voice, "But you may
take 'Weazel' home. He 's so annoying, always jumping around and I've had
him for so long. Be careful of him, though. He's really only playful.
Before Dick could accustom himself to the rapid trend of events, he found
himself seated in his car, clutching his arm a small black monkey, which also
clutched him, his hair, his tie, and found great joy in grabbing the wheel. Ten
minutes later, a somewhat disheveled Dick walked up the porch of Mariann's
home, and sank down limply upon the swing beside Billy. "Here's your
monkey, " he gasped.
"Oh, that's all rightf, responded Billy, "keep l1in1 a. while longer. My
smoking always annoys him."
Witli almost nonchalant manner, she pulled out from her bag a long, black,
diamond-studded cigarette holder, and started to blow perfect smoke rings into
Dick was lost in admiration. At last he had met a girl who appeared
perfectly unconscious of his presence and indifferent to his opinions.
Several weeks passed in which Billy collected every man in town, made
a general rendezvous of the Jones residence, and gave the town more topics
for conversation than it had known since the days of Indian massacres. She
swore, it was rumored, smoked incessantly, danced vulgarly, and had all the
men in town crazy over her. But the most important topic was Richard
Anderson. He haunted the Joneses, morning, noon and night, sent flowers,
candy a11d cigarettes constantly. It was even noticed that he sat. in his car in
front of the house and waited for her to appear, so that he would be able to see
her, if nothing more.
Then came a wild night when Dick and Billy decided to elope. The stage
was all set-Billy's bags packed, her trunk checked, and even "XVeazel" accom-
panied them. The road was black, but had Richard been at all wary, he would
have noticed a long string of cars following them. Suddenly, as they neared
the minister's home, a car swcrved ahead of them, stopped, and blocked their
way. Richard exploded angrily, hut Billy, grabbing her monkey, dashed into
the other car and called back, "Good-bye, old woman-hater. Next time you're
in New York look me up, and welll go on a. bat together." Richard Anderson
sat dazed in the car, staring blankly ahead of him, unconscious of the shouts
that issued from the other cars. Suddenly, he heard Mariann call out, "Come
down to the station to see her off, Dick."
And Dick realized that girls who couldn't blow smoke rings, dance the
latest step, and generally torment a fellow were really safer after all, and
that he was thankful that he ha.dn't eloped.
He told Mariann this later in the seclusion of her now quiet porch. To his
amazement, she laughed. "Why, Dicky," she exclaimed, "didn't you know
she's going to be married to a New York man next week, and just came here
for a rest before all the wedding parties?"
Dick Anderson gulped. "No," he said thickly, "I didn't know that."

c'Nurse Margaret,'l she whispered, 440.01110 here."
The nurse arose troni her seat by the window and walked quietly over to
"Yes, dear," she said, as she gently pushed back the thick, dark curls
from the girl's hot forehead.
4'Nurse, does the doctor think that l am going to die?"
The girls feverish brown eyes searched the nurse's blue eyes inquiringly.
't Why-" Nurse Margaret hesitated.
'tTell 1ne the truth," the sick girl demanded.
HWell, Betty dear, you know you are pretty sick, but we wou't give you
up. XVhy! what would your father do without you? You must get well, for
his sake and for ours, and the girls. They are all so anxious to have you back
in class again. And they have been so still, and pass your door on tip-toe.
The school is a different plaee sinee you have been ill.'l
Betty smiled a taint contented sinile. Then a wistful look came into her
"Does Marie miss l'll0?H she inquired.
"VVhy, ot eourse. dear," replied Nurse Margaretg but Betty notieed that
the nurse 's blue eyes avoided her dark ones. '
"I guess she doesn't," the girl nuirniured softly and her eyes filled with

"Yes, l know. But she is pretty and T am not. She is cleverer than I am.

'iNurse, when is the art exhibition to he held?" she asked suddenly.
'tNext week. l think the day is Tuesday."
'WVell, tell Marie to he sure and hand in my pieture." The parieut's eyes
were eager and there was a flush on her face.
"Go to sleep, dearg you are talking too much," the nurse CO1Tlll1Z11lLl6Cl.
And in spite of Betty's protests. she lowered the shades and walked quietly
out of the room.
fXMPTENNIAN-, ,24 Fifty TIWHU
Betty lay still, gazing at a little ray ot light that stole in under the window
bliud. She wondered what the girls were doing. Five weeks was a long time
to be ill, and pneumonia was a dreadful thing. She would not have been ill
if she had not gone to the dance that night. But father would not let Marie
go without her, so Marie hand insisted on her going. Of course. she reasoned,
Marie did not realize how ilfl she'was. lt had been a dreadful night, too, all
rain and slush. She, remembered getting her slippers wet when she stepped
into a. puddle as she was getting into the car. Dick. their escort, had carried
Marie out. Everybody was always nice to Marie. But then, Betty reflected,
Marie looked so trail and delicate with her pale skin and languid dark eyes,
and she, Betty, looked so big and strong. Ot course, she didn't use liquid
powder to make her pale. She didn't know how to attract the boys. either.
But she didn't want to. Marie could have them all except Dick. Vlfhy couldn 't
she let Dick alone? He was so big. so splendid and was a wonderful Doctor.
But Dick never even saw Betty when Marie was around. Betty sighed and
turned her back to the window. Her glance rested on a large cut glass vase
filled with American Beauty roses. Her tace lit up, HI-le must like me just a
little when he sent me such lovely tiowers." she said. But perhaps it is only
because I am Marie's sister. He thinks lXfIarie is so clever and that I am so
Stupid. Vllell, I will show l1im at the art exhibition. I just know that my pic-
ture is good because Old Daddy -Toe says it is, and he is a good critic. lle was
so pleased because he is the only one I have shown it to. I didn 't dare to tell
the rest at home that I had shown it to anyone, as Marie wanted to he the first
to see it. I wonder what her picture is like. She seemed sort of dissatisfied
with it the last time she was in heref' As these thoughts passed through her
mind the girl 'S eyelids began to droop and soon she was dreaming of her pic-
ture, Dick, a.nd her future triumph.
The day of the art exhibition came at last. Betty was a great. deal better,
but so excited that she could neither eat nor sleep. Marie and her father had
been in to see her. Marie was also very excited and stayed only a, few min-
utes. She said that she heard that three men from the city were to aet as
judges. Nurse Margaret had not been in all afternoon as she had another
patient to attend to.
The afternoon seemed to spread over several years. At last, the exhibition
was over. The people began to go home. The school grew quiet, hut no one
came in to break the news to Betty.
Finally. Nurse Margaret came in with a trav. at 6 o 'clock.
1 P' .
"Nurse," Betty began eagerly.
"Not a. word until you have eaten your dinner," the nurse reproved.
"But how can I eat when l don 't know who won the prize .Please tell ine'
The nurse shook her head.
"Not until you eat your dinner."
Betty sat up and forced a few mouthtuls ot egg down her throat.. Then
she put down her spoon.. "lt's no use, I can't eat anything until you tell ine."
F1'fiyF0w', i .fXMP'l'l2NNl.XX, '34
The nurse removed the tray, eame over, and tenderly took the little White
hand in hers. -
"I know you will be glad, dear, to hear that Marie won the first prize,"
she said softly.
Betty turned red. then white. The room grew very quiet. Then-
"I am glad," said Betty bravely. Ullllto won the other two?"
"Well, the nurse was relieved to see Betty taking it so quietly, "Mary
Willis won the second, and Fora Hendricks won the third."
"'Oh.!" was all Betty said, but all the eagerness had died out of her eyes.
- "Nurse, please. I am tired, il, would like to have you put. out the light."
Betty turned her faee to the wall.
"Good-night, darling," and the nurse brushed hack the dark eurls and left
a kiss on the damp forehead.
Betty did not answer.
The next. day, Betty reeeived a big box ot roses from Diek, and some of
their color seemed to steal into her eheeks, as she read the few lines he had
serawled on the eard. lt was only several words, but it brought a world
of happiness to her. lt read, "TO MY QUEEN ROSE."
Somehow, life was worth living after all, she thought, so she sat up and
ate her breakfast. After breakfast Nurse Margaret was persuaded to bring her
the paper. Eagerly she turned to the news of the exhibition. The eolor faded
from her cheeks, her eyes grew wide and staring, and her lips moved, but
uttered no sound. With a trembling finger she pointed to a paragraph. "Read
it," she gasped.
Nurse Margaret obediently read this paragraph:
"The first prize was awarded to Miss Marie Price, a member of the Senior
Class. ller pietnre is ealled 'The Brook' lt shows?"
The nurse paused and glanced toward the bed, tor Betty had fallen baek
among the pillows and was gazing straight before her with glassy, unseeiug
eyes. She was very ill that night. and for many other nights.
The exhibition had been held on the 6th of May, and it was June before
Betty was able to sit up again. 1'
Marie and her father eame in every day, to see her. Diek was also peru
mitted to eome onee or twiee.
One day. Nurse Margaret eanie in with a paper. "Read this, dear," she
Betty read it. lt was a short notiee, stating that there had been a mistake
made at the art exhibition. 'lThe Brook," which had been awarded first prix.-
had not been painted by Miss Marie Price, but by her twin sister, Betty Priee.

t'.Iust how did they find it out?" Betty asked.
"You talked of it constantly while you were delirious and youpmentioned
that Old Daddy Joe had seen the picture. VVc questioned him and showed him
the picture. He assured ns that you had painted it. Then we went to Marie.
She broke down and cried. She didn 't mean to do it, she said, hut the picture
she had painted turned out so poorly and she thought you were going to die, so
it wouldn'l' make any fllECl"9l1C0. I really think, dear, that she is very sorry.
She has been so devoted to you ever since your relapse. Oh! I must ask your
pardon. I forgot that I have a note for you."
The nurse searched in her hngre pocket and pulled out a small envelope.
It was a. letter from Dick. Witli fumbling tingrers, Betty tore it open. It con-
tained only a single line.
'4Wo1i't you let these roses whisper my secret to you ?"
Wheii Betty looked up, Nurse Margaret had left the room. She read and
reread the precious note. Then she laid her cheeks a,Q'ainst it. clasped her hands
and murmuring sof1ily,"Now I'n1 glad I lived."

NANCY'S INCIDENT WITH
t'Nan, what is your candid opinion concerning bohhed hair, not the straight
hob, but the boy holy?" Seraphine Dailly eagerly inquired of her chum and room-
mate. Nancy Bettancourtte.
HNOW, Seraphine, you know how trank I am about answering questions, and
if you don.'t care to have your feelings hurt you had better not ask me what I
think of the boy hob. But Nan, will you do me a favor tomorrow tl'
"Certainly, what is it?"
"Now, dou't get too excited, or anything, when l tell you what it is. I have
heen earnestly considering the question of having a straight hoh and I was
wondering whether you would go down town with me tomorrow to have it done'
"Nanl do you really mean it? Oh, can 't we go today? VVlllC1l did you
decide? Did your mother give her consent? Did you tell Betty yet 'OuchI
Nan 's warning to Seraphine was in vain for in joy of hearing that her friend
was going to have her hair hohhed she forgot all about her own pretty golden
bobbed hair that she was curling with the electric iron, hut was suddenly made
to remember it for the hot iron slipped From her fingers and landed on her neck,
and, of course, burned it. The suddenness of it all caused Seraphine to jump up
with a start and scream.
Just at. this point Betty arrived, unannounced, in the room, and looked ques-
tioningly -at the two girls in it. The one was laughing heartily, while the other
had a scared and hlank expression on her face.
"Will you please explain the situation," said Betty, not knowing what to
think could have happened.
Meanwhile Seraphine realized what had happened and joined Nan in her
hearty laugh. At length they became calmer and explained how Seraphine had
burned her neck while asking so many questions ot Nan onthe suhject ot hohbed
Betty was also greatly surprised and delighted to hear the news. lt was
arranged that next morning so the three could go downtown.
These three girls could always be found together and they were the pride of
the Freshman Class of N- College, where they attended. There was a cer-
tain undetinahle charm ahout each one ot them. Nan, who was first in everything,
was tall, with pretty hrown hair and eyes, and distinctively olive complexion, ex-
ceedingly graceful and an all around athlete. Seraphine was also tall, but had
light hair, hlue eyes and fair complexion, while Betty, who everyone liked to call
the Bahy, due to her smallness, had hlack curly hair, and laughing black eyes.
When together they formed a decided contrast.
t'Oh, girls! what a. stupid hair dresser she was to make such a dreadful mis-
take. I told her ever so plainly that I simply wanted my hair hohhed straight
and not in shingles or hoy lmoh, and now to think she gave me the hoy hoh, ol? all
things!" wailed Nancy as she looked dismayedly into the mirror shortly after
leaving the l1?lI1'fl1'0SSC1'7S that morning.
"Well, it she did it, it's done, and thatis that." said Betty. snapping her
fingers, "and, furthermore, you are not going to stay home this afternoon and
.-XMPTENNIAN, .24 Fifty SCPUII
bewail the accident, instead you are going with us, as we planned, into the woods
to gather some tlowers and leaves."
"OhI Nan, il have itf' suddenly cried Seraphine, looking up eagerly from
her huge and comfortable rocking chair. L'Now that the deed is done, there is no
use crying over it. Init instead l have a great' scheme. Suppose we dress in our
kniekers, blouses and caps for the h-ike as soon as possible and then Nan, you can
go on ahead across the campus to Mary 's room for her and the other girls. You
can pretend you are a boy and I 'll bet they won 't recognize you at tirst, and it
will be a bushel of fun." . e
'6That's very nice of you to try to think of something to cheer nie, Seraphine,
but you will please remember that there has been a rather strict law passed 'For-
bidding girls to wear knickers on the campus, and besides I' do not think I care
to let you have a lot ot fun at my expense," poutingly declared Nan.
"O, Seraphine, that is a clever stunt. Nancy. l double dare you to do it.
Now you have to take that dare, because ot the one l took from you the other
dayg you know you promised to accept the next dare that was given to you and
now if you drop this you will be a Slacker," said Betty, deliantly.
'tl never was a slacker, and l don 'ti intend to become one now, so here goes.
Do I look enough like a boy to truly be taken for one? ls my hair Hxed just
right? ls my tie tied correctly? I am so glad I lll'0I'lg'lll' this manuish looking
blouse with me. lt surely completes the outtit. docsn't it '? And 0. l must wear
those heavy boyish oxfords of yours, Seraphine. As long as I am going to do it,
I might just as well look like a genuine boy," said Nancy, getting as enthusiastic
about it as were the others.
The two girls had their faces flat. against the window pane, watching Nancy.
who just left the building and was about to cross the campus. 'I'hcir thoughts
lay in the same path, mainly, that if one of the professors would see Nancy he
would instantly take her for a boy and allow her to pass undisturbed, for her
athletic build and walk was in harmony with her costume.
'illookl Seraphine, lookl Do you see him? Here comes Mr. 'Wt-isly, you
know that young Math. teacher that substituting for Prof. W'ells's place. And
Nancy has him in that subject. Oh! 'l wonder if he will recognize her! There
they are about to pass one another. My word! He is stopping and speaking to
herg he surely must have recognized her. O, I shall never forgive myselt tor
having made the dare, it' is all my fault," cried Betty all in one breath.
"They are walking down the street, and all seems to be well. as far as l can
see," said Seraphine, continuing to look on. H
At length Nancy and her teacher were out of sight' and Seraphine and Betty
looked at one another with questioning eyes, but neither one was able to answer
the other, so they decided they would just remain where they were until Nancy
would return and explain the proceedings.
Meanwhile Nancy had left the building and while walking briskly along.
perceived, at some distance, the approach ot Mr. 'Weisly. She determined at once
to try her best to pass him in her disguise, so she bravely tipped the cap she was
wearing and was about to walk on when she heard him speaking to her.
"OI I say there, Dick. what is your hurry? You remember you promised to
take a walk with me some day, and we were going to try to tind that tiower we
were discussing. Suppose we go today!" he was saying.
When addressed as Dick, Nancy was about to walk on, but suddenly, remem-
FiffyEfigl1f iXMP'l'ENNIAN, '24
bering her attire, decided to carry out the role of Dick To The best of her ability,
for evidently she must have looked like some fellow with that name,
HThis is a. beautiful day and there is not much to to do," continued Mr.
Weisly, "so suppose we spend The afternoon as l suggested."
"l-I really cannot go this afternoon," stainmered Nancy, HI promised to go
over To the gym this afternoon to practice a bit for The coming game."
"To the gymnasium today, why this is the girls' day at the gym, so there,
you have no excuse. Be a sport and eome along, the walk will do you good."
Nancy was dismayed 'g There was no getting out of it, for, go she must. They
walked about for some time, talking about birds, tlowers, and finally math. NVhile
discussing certain methods in math. Nan almost revealed her identity, but fortu-
nately checked herself in time. From what she could gather from Mr. VVeisly's
statement, this Dick that he took her for, was a friend of Mr. VVeisly's and Dick
was also attending Nl College. Nancy Thought it would he interesting to
look him up sometime and see for herself if there was that great a resemblance
between Dick and herself.
VVhen at length Nan returned to her room, she found two anxious girls
awaiting her arrival. There were many questions and answers exchanged, and
in a short time Nancy had explained everything.
'flint Nan, suppose he recognizes you in class tomorrow, what then? You
know you can"t change your hair, and your voice might draw his attention: what
are you going to do about it?" asked Seraphine.
"Never you mind my hair. I will attend to that part of it, for, of course,
I shall get other hair and wear it up and no one will know that I had it bobbed,
for you see, you two are the only girls who have seen me."
And thus the atfair was settled. Nan wore her hair up and no 0110 knew the
difference, but the girls always enjoyed teasing Nan about the dare she took from
Betty. And Nan could never look at her math. teacher without a feeling that
he had discovered that she had acted as Dick on that ever-to-be-remembered after-
noon. Great was her relief, Therefore, when, after some time, Mr. XVe1ls returned
and Mr. 'Weisly went away from the college.
School days were now over for Nan and her pals, for they had graduated
from N- College, and Nan was standing alone at the Weston station await-
ing her train, when she heard a familiar voice, and turning around she saw her
friend, Mr. VVeisly. She was greatly surprised to hear him say- '
"Good morning Mr. Dick, Miss Nancy Bettancourtte. O, you needn't. look
so surprised. I know about that trick you played on me when you dressed as a
boy, but l. never discovered the reason for it. NVon 'T you tell me now?"
lvhile riding home on The train, Nan and Mr. Weisly had a long talk, for it
happened that he was going to make a visit in the town where Nan lived. There
was much laughter when Nan told him how she chanced to be dressed as she was
on that particular day. Mr. Weisly' eonfessed that when he addressed her first
that inorning he really thought she was Dick Turner, a chap attending N-
College that year. But after a. short time he realized that it was not Dick but a
girl in disguise, and that he had been anxious to know all about it, when finally-
he fully recognized her.
t'Well, at any rate, the affair as a whole turned out to be very amusing and
entertaining to all," laughingly declared Nan, ttbut I never gathered enough
nerve to have my hair bohbed after That, and I do not think I ever shall."

at 5.00 A. M.

After taking possession of the cottage we all pitched in to eoneoct some

'We were fourteen. VVe were divided into seven groups of two members.
There were seven committees, namely :- Exercise and First Aid Commititee,
VVO1-k Committee, Errand Connnittee. Entertaining Committee. Overseer Com-

Each group was a eennnittee. Each day the groups moved ahead one

Each eook's group had planned the three meals for their day beforehand,
had ordered the provisions, so everything went smoothly at Camp. Our eats
were surely plenty enough and fine enough to suffice our enormous appetites.
VVe went camping for a good time, hut we had to have the good time ac-
cording to rules, as anyone should.
Before going to eamp we laid down the following rules or schedule :-
6.00 A. M. Arise!
6.15-6.30 A. M. Morning Dip and Exercises.
A. M. Breakfast.
7.30-8.2-30 A. M. i"l'idying-up" hour..

10.00 P. M. Lights Out.
lVe surely worked systematically and team-like and heeause of this really
enjoyed our work.
VVe took a few hikes around the island and the North Gap, but our best
hike was the one into East Stroudsburg, fabout 10 miles both waysj where ,we
enjoyed seeing a moving picture show. Every time we thought of the return
home we felt sick at heart for we were having such a wonderful time and such
Miss Seidel, our faithful guardian, surely saw to it. that we both worked
and enjoyed ourselves immensely. lt was ,due to her that our Camp made
enough money, to go camping. She truly lived up to our motto, "Worli and
Wii'1.' ' faithfully. i ,
Although "them good old camping days" are gone we expect to enjoy
just as fine ones this year. as it is the last year we lean all be together as school-
girls. We hope that all you readers will have a fine time too.

WOANWI CAMP FIRE NOTES
With a motto "Work a.nd XVin" the NVoanwi l..1au1p-Fire Girls have gradu-
ally attained their aims. Much of our suecess is due to our guardian, teacher
and friend, Miss Seidel. I
The girls have been working continually to attain as many "honors" as
possible before June. Most ot us trying to attain the leadersliip rank, caring
for three "Blue Birds." i
Every one is looking 'forward to Hcampl' this summer again, all doing
their share by selling candy and magazines.
The hike on Sept. 12, proved to be a delightful one. Two of the girls
blazed a trail and served a typical camp supper to the rest.
On Nov. 3, the girls gave a "Masquerade Party," at which we entertained
the faculty and the senior class. The building was decorated with many pump-
kins, eorn stalks and Ghosts, which made' a rather "spooky" appearance.
After a number ot games and contests, suitable for the occasion, tot' which Mr.
Sehaier eaptnred all prizesj a dainty lunch' was served. llere, too, a certain
member ot the faculty again shone.
"Penrod and Sam" was enjoyed by all, after a hike to Allentown on Nov-
At Christmas time we did our bit by sending boxes to'the Good Shepherd
Shortly after the holidays we organized a group of "Blue Birds," under
the name of "lVoanwi Juniors." This organization is composed of 45 children
between the ages of six and ten. At the meetings they are taught games and
lQlamp-Fire ideals, so that .in the future they may become better Camp-Fire
Girls than we ?tI'S.

themselves capable of the responsibility. The building was decorated with so
many Ghosts, pumpkins and eorn stallis. that it eould not be recognized.
Much excitement was aroused when the guests appeared in their unique

During February, the eighth grades of town, in turn, entertained their
mothers in the doniestie seionee roonis. After all were acquainted, they spent
a Very sociable evening, after whieh a lunch was served by the class.
BANQUET TO THE BOARD
On the thirteenth of Ma 1-eh, the girls of the elass of '26 gave a banquet to
the Board of Education. lt was to honor Saint. Patrick for driving all the
snakes from Ireland. Dinner was to be served at seven o 'eloek and there were
many busy hands in the kitchen before that hour.
After all the guests had arrived they were sunnuoned to dinner by an Irish
eolleen, dressed eonipletely in white, save for a green ruffle and shainroek on
her apron. CI-Ier companions making their appearaiiee later, were dressed the
Same., As they entered the dining room all was dark, save for the lighted
candles on the table. The eolleen then switched on the lights and after some
difficulty the guests found their plaees. Naturally the first. thing they did was
piek up the Menu, to see-xvliat they were about to eat, but sueh a puzzling
affair, not all of it sounded appetizing, is there any wonder, for how would you
feel if you thought you were about to eat:

The interest that is taken in this line of work is readily shown by the innnly

"dug up" iWolT'ang, a Sophomore. lic-Fore The middle of The season, Paul was

The Black and Orange didn't. win The pennant, we finished in I'ourT.h place, and
might have done much beTTer if The breaks of The game had been with our Team.
The Holy Trinity Church Team, composed off former High School stars,
claimed The championship of The Town, but The backers of The Black and Orange
disputed This claim, saying That The Iligh School Team was The better of The Two
teams. Two games had already been played between these Teams and each
emerged with a one point victory under Their belt. High School won The first,
The score being 17-16. The seeoud game excelled The first in wonderful shots
and close guarding. Holy Trinity won This game hy a 19-18 score. A series
of three games was arranged near the end of The season. Trinity won the first
of This series by The score of 29-20, and were confident: of another victory
and The Town championship. The Black and Orange staged a "comeback" and
we won The second game by one point, The score being 20-19. After The game

both managers met and flipped a coin to decide where the deciding game should
be played. Mr. Uhrislman won the toss and the third game was played at 'the
Wcilfci Cage. Both teams were confident of victory before the game began, but
as the game progressed, the Holy Trinity Five lost confidence, bit by bit, and
when the bell rang. ending the game, lligh School was the victor by a score of
32-19. This meant that the Town Championship had been won by Coach
Spangls Northampton High lVarriors and "Hughie" Spang wore a broad smile.
VVe cannot give Coach Spang enough credit, because he worked hard to
develop a winning team. He was always encouraging, and whenever We lost
a close game or lost a player through injury or scholastic ditticulties, he had
soniething to say, in an encouraging manner, to the entire Wgang."
"Ilughie's" characteristic smile shown both in defeat or victory and it meant
much to the team. Mr. Spang is the pilot of the Emails Team of the Lehigh
Valley Basketball League and was a former coach of Catasauqua High School.
Vile are glad to know that he will be with us again next year.
The prospects for a good team for the coming season are bright and we
will have such men as Young. Snyder, lVoltgang, Royer, "Bob" Smith, XVieand
and Fluck as a nucleus. All the above mentioned were members ot the squad
last season and all have some experience in the cage game.
The crowning event ot the year was the Basketball banquet. given by
"Toot" Lane, captain ot our team. Oh! Boy, it was a. chicken and waffle sup-
per, too, and maybe a "Gang" ot young fellows can't eat, but just ask t'Toot"
and look up the attendance record ot the following morning. We had music
and everything. and particularly a real good time. NVe all thanked "Toot" for
the "eats" and departed taboutl 12 P. M. We proved that chicken and wat--
fles is a good supper tor young athletes because we won the Town-Chanipioir
ship the following evening. VVe again thank you for the great "eats,'l Edgar.
PERSONNEL OF THE TEAM
I ' Toot 7 ' Lane-Captain '24,
Edgar Lane, better known as "Irish" or 'iToot," added quite a few lanrels
to his athletic record. by completing one of his best years in the cage game.
This year, he has again played guard and he has played his position brilliantly.
"Toots" fighting spirit and sportsmanlike conduct put "pep" into our team,
and he has shown himself to be a capable captain. Early in the season, "Irish"
developed a ''eharley-hoi-se" in his right lcnee,,but he couldn't be kept out ot
the game. He was in there lighting even if he had to wear a knee-brace.
"Toots', took his share ot jolts and fractured his thumb in one of the last
games of the season. But again, he showed his spirit and played the following
games with his thumb in splints. t'Toot" has been on the varsity squad for
tour years and the Black and Orange will surely miss him next year. He ex-
pects to enter Allentown, Prep., and we are sure that the Hold fighting spirit"
will make good in future athletics.
lfiglziy Sir AMP'rr:NN1lxN, .24
"Art" Young' '25,
"Art" is one of the best basket-ball players that the walls of N. H. S. has
ever harbored. In his Freshman year, ':Art" attempted to play the guard posi-
tion and beeause ot his elose g'llEll'tllllgI, aemluired the name ol' "bareback" In
his Sophomore year, he practiced diligently and became the best seorer in the
L. V. I. League. He has played forward ontour team and was occasionally
used as center. Art put his heart and soul into every game he played and is
recognized as one of the best playersin L. V. Sc-.holastie eireles this year. Art
kept up the tine spirit that was so eharaeteristie ot him in his Sophomore year,
and again eaptured high seoring honors of the League this year. He is fast
and serappy, but he doesn't like to fight. This was evident in the Allentown
game at the XVolfe Gyin. this year. Art was the last to strike, but maybe he
ean't "sock," Art is sueeessfnl in everything he tries, and he is a. great base-
ball player. We hope that he will again capture high-scoring honors and we wish
him lnek in future athletics.
HSon" Zimmerman '24,
This young giant eaine baek to us as we expected him to do and held down
the pivot position in a very satistaetory manner. "Son" was a big factor in
'fkeeping the spirit up' on the team during a game and it was this we are
sure that gave us a quite sueeesstul season. HSonH is a wizard on overhead
shots, and when jumping on a. "toss-up" near the basket, he must be feared
because ol? his ability to tap the sphere in the basket. "Zimps" served the
Black and Orange Team last season and made a. name for himself, and when
he came baek this season he was determined to uphold that name. Did he?
lVell, I'll say he did. "Son" is a t'heady" player and also a. elean-out 'Wal'-
rior. He is somewhat quiet but his fighting spirit was plainly shown. in the Al-
lentown Game on our fioor when the two teams eame to blows. "Son" is a
Senior and will eertainly be missed, but we are proud to reeommend him to
I ' Snitz " Snyder '26,
"Snitz" was a player pieked from the squad ol' t'serubs." No one knew
what he'd show, but when he got into action, we knew well enough he was
destined toibeeonie a "crack" guard. And sothe was. Paired with Lane, Harold
exhibited wonderful guarding.: ability. t'Snitz" never believed in individual-
ism. but saw only one ligrht, namely Team work. lVe are proud to say that
"Sni1z's" wonderful work saved many a game. ln serinnuage, Harold always
name out the "best man." His determination. strength and quiek aetiont were
his charaeteristies, and i'lll'Ullg'll these we found a good guard. , HSnitz" played
stationary guard and because ot this did not get many shots' at the baskets, but
we must say, that he is a. "good shot." Harold is only a. "Soph " and we hope
he'll show up better next year. ,

H Sterly ' ' Miller '24,
One of the main factors in upholding the good basket-ball reputation of
the Northampton High School, was Mr. Sterling Miller, '24, Miller came to
us four years ago a.nd immediately set. his mind upon "making" the team. It
was not until his Sophomore year that "Sterly" showed real class as a player.
During this year he was a utility man, but oh! boy, when he became a Junior
his jaws and mind were set with great determination, and that determination
was-"I've got to make the team." Did he? Well, I hope to tell the world.
It was in this year of varsity basket-ball that he, together with his partner,
Young, incorporated the famous Miller to Young pass which assisted "Art"
in capturing Individual High Scoring honors of the L. V, I. League. "Sterly"
is a very i'heady" player, a good shot and delights in "scrapping" when neces-
sary. Miller served his Alma Mater this year, but due to some scholastic diffi-
culties Was debarred during the fore part of the year. XVhen the ban was
lifted, Sterling was happy because he wanted to keep up his good work. Then
in one "tough" game when we needed him very badly, his shoulder was bruised
and 'he was forced to sit on the bench for the remainder of the season. We
Wish to recommend his wonderful aggressiveness to anyone or any team within
the limits of this town. NVe hope he makes further use of his athletic ability.
G. M. R., '24.
Q "Bill" Snyder '24.
'Willard came back to .us for his second year of High School Basket-ball,
but this year he went back to his old position as forward and showed that hc
was still a "good shot." XVe must say that "Bill" played good games and
made friends wherever he went, tfemale if not malej. He took defeat as he
took victory, but when defeat stared us in the face, "Bill" was in there to get
that old ball and carry it to safe territory. He handles the ball with great ease
and is very steady when shooting for a goal. "Bill" has made an enviable
record for himself during his years of athletics, having been 'cstai-" twirler
for the past three seasons, and a scrappy little guard on the basket-ball team
in '23, He intends bringing his record up to a higher standard in base-ball
this year and has decided to play third base when not called upon to do mound
duty. "Bill" is one of the Senior crew, and we will certainly miss his services in
athletics. However, we wish him luck in future athletic umlertalcing.
G. M. R. '24,
The subs included Boyer, "Bob'l Smith, Fluck and Wieaiicl. They have
all received some experience and should improve in another year. They will
all be back next year and we are sure to see some of their faces on the varsity
team, 'We know that they will make good and we wish them all success in the
following years in high school athletics.
"Bobby" Leh and Harry Troxell have done much to keep the student body
interested in "yelling', at the games. They have done their 'islnffw and should
be a great help to the rooters next year.

GIRLS, BASKET BALL TEAM
Vllhen our eoaeh, Miss I'5L'1'19,', sounded the elarion eall for aspiring "basketeers"
a :most encouraging! response was reeeived. About forty girls were present at
the try-out for the varsity. The material that Miss Berg reeeived last year was
entirely inexperienced, but atter one year of her exeellent' coaching' they made
a very ereditable showing. having lost only one game on their own floor and three
games away from home.
Three members of the varsity graduate in June, but there is excellent
material available for next year's team, and it is Miss Berg's opinion that the
next varsity will make as good a. record as the past one has done.
THE MEMBERS OF THE "CEMENT SIXH
MARGUERITE BERG '24 cFOI'WZtI'dD
t'l'3erg'ie" served as eaptain last year and has earned the title ol' "Northamp'
ton's swift little forward," through her exeellent playing' for the past. three
years. She holds the honor of being our highest' individual seorer, and she will
be greatly missed in our next year 's team.
Rll'l'll NEWIIARIJ, '25 Clilorwardl
"Peachy", is one ot our Junior representat'ives on the team. She is set down
in basket ball history as our miglity forward. Her height: aided her materially
in sqneleliing' opponents. She will be baek next 'year to give her adversaries a
seeond taste of her prowess in this li11e.
E'l'ltlEl1MOHREY, '24 CGnardj
Ethel was one of our strongest guards on the varsity for three eonseeutive
years. Even as a Freshman she demonstrated her ability as an athlete at a num-
ber of games in which she substituted for the regulars. The position of guard
did not give her any opportunity to ea,pt1nre individual honors, but her team work
was instriunental in helping to win every game in which she played.
HELEN O'LOUGHLlN, '24 QGuardj
Helen paired with Ethel as guard and her excellent work has won many an
honor for her colleagues. She started her basket ball career as a F1-esliman and
her ability grew with her experienee. She is a Senior and her absenee will leave
a gap in the team that will be diti'ieult' ilf not impossible to till.
LOVENIA MILLQER-, '27 Cflenterj
- Lovenia, our plueky eenter, made an enviable reeord by stepping' in a posi-
tion on the varsity in her first year in high sehool. lt she continues as she has
begun, she will eertainly maiat a bright name for herself as an N. ll. S. athlete.
SARA RTKVIIARIJS, i25 QSide flenterj
Sara. had no experience previous to this year, but her position as side eenter
has not been out-elassed by her opponents. ller Hoor work has been especially
brilliant and 11ext year 's varsity looks forward to a eontinuanee of this work.

Thep1'ospec:ts of a good baseball team for the coming season were consider-
ably lowered by the announeoinent that three young athletes had c'qui1i" school.
"Joe" Smith, varsity eatelwr for the last tliree years: HBil.l" lVlc-ns.ii1ge1', varsity
shortstop of last yeav, and "Joe" l-Suehina, varsity lofllielrlf-i', are the menibeirs
The team will have as a nucleus, "A11't'! Young, ee11te1'lielde1.' and pitoherg
'fl3ill" Hartzell, iirst-saekurg "Bill" Snyder, pitcher and third baseman, and
Harold Snyder, an inlieldev. There is some very good material in the l4'i'eslnnan
and Sophomore classes and we should have a good team on the diamond this year.
The team will be coached by l'Jaelc" Kreisel and managed by F. A. Cl1I'lSl'lH?Lll.
also nianager of the basketball team. 'Wo have obtained a few gaines on our
schedule, and among the best are Allentown Prop School, Betlilehem Prep School,
Sl,ati11g1'on High Sehool and Reading High School. A sovies has also been ar-
ranged with Catasauqna High, a 111Ql11lN'I' ot the Eastern Division of the Central
Pennsylvania, Baseball League. The opening game will be played with Wl1i13c-
hall High School of Hokendauqua.
Some of the best eandiclates of the lower elasses are '4CliH?" R-abenold,
mascot of the Nortliainpton Baseball team of Lehigh Valley Leagneg Haldeman,
a young southpaw piteln-i'5 Boyer, an i1n'ielcloi', and Legenza, an outfielder. Most
of the younger iiieniliers of 1he squad lack experience, lint we are sure that they
will come tlirough.

A SOJOURN IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL
The thirty-third Continental Congress of the Dangliters of the American
Revolution convened in Xkiasliingrtoii on Monday, April l-1. This t"ong1reSs seemed
more real to n1e than any other for the simple reason that l was to be there and
a part ot' it. Surely there is no thrill like that of being in Washington unless you
are in Vllashiugton for a speeial oeeasion sueh as the D. A. R. Congress always is.
When lf arrived there on Saturday. the 12th. the city was already swarming with
women from every state in the Union. Even tho' l had been inNVashington
several times, I had only a vague impression of our oxen building, Memorial
t'ont1inental Hall. l knew it was beautit'ul, white marble, and was the only build-
ing' in the United States built entirely by women for women. The exception to the
latter rule was made in 1922. when the NVashing'ton f'onferenee for the Limita-
tion ot Armaments met in America and honored ns by holding its nieetings there.
And so, with these hazy recollections. l walked througrh the park fone of many in
the eityj to that section of the Nall whieh on one street boasts olf four of NVashing-
louis beautiful buildings in a group: The t'orehoran Art Gallery, the National
lied C'ross liuildingr, Memorial f'ontiuental llall Cfrequently spoken of as the
IJ. A. H. Buildingrl, and the Pan Ameriean Building: 1 found it an easy
matter to reeognize our building by its outstanding feature-the South Portieo,
Ninety T-wo AMPTENN1-NN, 324
which is semi-cireular and graced byithirteen columns representative of the thir-
teen original colonies. As Saturday was the day for registration, inost. of the
delegates we1'e in the Adniinistration wing of the huilding, at the other end of the
block, so that the Pages had ainple opportunity to inspect' the interior and to get
"the lay of the land" before the opening session. My first impression of the
interior was a inost favorable one. You enter through the main doorway in the
center, cross the lobby, and 'tind yourself at the inain entrance to the auditorium
which, altho spacious, does not begin to aceoinniodate the delegates. Speakers
can, however, he heard readily by people in the library to the right' or in the
nnisenni to the left. because the opening ot' the huge doors seems almost magically
to turn these three tanc'lit'orini'n, innseinn, and libraryi into one large hall. The
auditoriuni, which is done in white receives the tontch of neeessary color front the
silk tlags, one for each state. which are suspended from short poles jntting from
the trieze. ln the centre ofthe wall which torins the back ot the stage is a huge
repilica of the IJ. A. R. insignia.-a spinning wheel with the spokes extending
beyond the rim so that stars, tthirteen, of eoursei, niight he placed there, and
at lnass of flax pulled diagonally across the wheel. 'lihe colors, the blue and white
of lVashingt'onls statli, were briglitein-d at night by the twinkling stars, tiny elec-
tric lights. The remainder of the inain building is turned into many rooms, each
of which is furnished by a state with furniture of the colonial period and which
is doubly valuable because it is always historic. There are slope-top desks which
belonged to the Hrst governor of Massacliusetts or of V irginiag a. fan that Dolly
Madison used, a table that graced the home of one of the Signers of the Declara-
tion of Independence, and so on thronigh rooni after room. The newer states,
however, find themselves minus such relics and have-to show their interest hy
presenting new things not always historical but highly necessary. The gavel
used by the presiding oflicer is made of wood from ri cherry tree at VVa.kei'ield,
Va., the l.iirthplaee of George AtVElSlllIIlQlT0ll. This is not to be eonstruerl to be Hn:
cheirry tree wh.i,ch. our first, Presicilent, in his youth, is reported to have hacked.
Monday 1l101'lllIlg dawned bright' and sunshiny, hut very hot:-75 in the
shade. The thrill of the opening session l' can never forget. As the 150 white-
elad pages torined in pairs, behind the ehairinan of pages, hearing a handsome
silk Ainerican flag, niarch-ed down the aisle while Arthur Wl'lllC0lllll. the bngler
of the Marine Uorps, played 'Three flheers fer the Red. 'Wh.ite, and Blue," the
applausebegan, swelled consistently as the National officers followed, and reached
the climax when the President General, Mrs. Anthony lNayne tlooke, entered. l
was especially happy, for Mrs. Cooke is a Pennsylvanian, the lirst one to hold
so high an otiice, and one whoin the Keystone State 'feels is setting a high pre-
cedent lfor all President Generals to come. After the formal declaration of the
opening of f'ongress, Mrs. 'llhonias A. Edison, the chaplain general, read the
Scriptures, and prayed as only a woman as sincere as she is, can. Everybody
repeated the salute to the flag, which now is: "l pledge allegiance to the Hag of
the United States," instead of "to iny Hag." ln the old 'pledge there was the
danger of a foreigner 's saying "my Hag." with a niental reservation of the flag
of his native land and this ehange Gllll'll1l2'll'GH sneh a possibility. Mr. 'William
Tyler Page, clerk of the House ol' Representatives, led the audience in repeating'
the Al11t'F,l'02lll,S Creed of which he is the distinguished author.
Perhaps you are wondering what a Page is. 'Well, a Page at a D. A.. R.
Congress is just like a Page at the National Congress-a Page runs errands,
.-Xnetias sms, '24 Nifzeiy Three
carries messages and motions, and is aeeomuiodating g'euera.lly. Iucidentally a

about this city." Of course I was from Pennsylvania-and these women from
distant states feel that Pennsylvania is so close to thc District that we should
know the city of Washingrton as well as we know our own home towns. Going'
from Pennsylvania to VVashingrton seemed quite interesting, until the other 149
Pages began to nanie their states: 'within tive minutes the group of girls with
whoni, l happened to be talking' announced themselves as representing their re-
spective states of Mississippi. Maine, 1"orida. Vermont, Arizona and Alabama.
Hy that tinie, Pennsylvania seemed as if it were right across the street from the
The outstanding' feature of the morning session was the 1'resident t,teneral's
patriotic address. in which she sounded "a clarion call to devotion to the high
duty of full partnership in public atifairsg of consecration to patriotic ideals and
national defense and law enforceinentg and to the conservation and preservation
of the American honie in the highest sense and enlistment in the struggle against
the spread of bolshevisni, anarcliy, and socialism."
The session on Monday night is always the gala occasion. First there was
a thirty-minute concert by the Marine Baud Orchestra, which then drifted into
the strains ol' the President 's niarch as Calvin Coolidge entered. Fortunately
I was selected as one of the President 's escorts that night and so had a very
special opportunity to see all the notablcs as the secret service men guided theni
safely to their reserved boxes. The President, of course. spoke tirst, as you prob-
ably know, it' you are a radio tan. for the entire program was broadcasted. The
keynote of his address was that "American women must sustain their burden of
full partnership in public affairs." Exercising' the right of suffrage is no longer
a W01ll?lll,S privilege but an HUZJll'flflfI'07l' of c1'l1'zcnslzip,' which, if fully observed,
is the only way 'tot keeping' America truly American." This was in no sense a
eanipaigrn speech but a sincere ettort to have the wonien of such a patriotic organ-
ization realize their responsibility. Speaking' of cainpaigrns reminds nie that
there was some done through other sources. lt was so hot then that we needed
Vans to "Keep t'ooI-idg'e." Little buttons with the President 's picture advised
us: "Safe, sane, sure, t'ool-idg,'e." The pun was quite evident. The President.'s
voice is a typical New Eugrland one, slightly nasal. very deliberate and very dis-
tinct. Mrs. t'oolidg'e bowed so cordially that il. almost felt as if l knew her.
Madaine Peralta of the Metropolitan Opera Company, sang' before Monsieur Ji. J.
.'lusserani.l, the .French Ambassador, spoke. He reininded us that this was the
twenty-second D. A. R. tflongrcss that he has attended. He also pointed out that
the first lll01lll1llCIll to unknown soldiers was erected on the campus of St. John's
t'ollegz'e at Annapolis. Md.. to French soldiers and sailors who aided the Ameri-
can Revolution and who were interred there. The Frenchman is most pleasing'

would Hlike to see a life of Lincoln in the hands of every English school boy,

Hon. Honorio Pueyrredon, the Ambassador of Argentina: the Hon. Francisco
Sanchez Latour, the Minister olf Gautcmala, and the Hon. Ricardo J. Alfaro. the
Minister of Panama. The ease with which these men expressed themselves in the
English language was remarkable. and set us to wondering how long we would
have to study their language in order to make a coherent address in it,
ln addition to attending the thre'e regular daily sessions, I 'Found time to do
a, little sight-seeing. ln a city where most of the buildings are marble and are
simple in architecture, surely the liineoln Memorial is outstanding. It is such
a. colossal structure and yet so simple that Lincoln might well tind it fitting his
scheme of things. As you approach, you. tirst' of all, have a perfect replica of it.
in the calm, still waters of the retlecting pool that lies at the foot of the Forty
wide steps that lead up the Memorial. As you climb these steps you tind yourself
confronted by this large, square huildingg you feel dazed. lt is like one enormous
room. with the fourth side missing, or like a stage rooted over. The entire
building is surrotnnled by eolunins, the light entering through the fourth side
tiltering between the columns there, and through a kind of colored skylight. As
N011 enter between the columns. the1'e is a statue of Lincoln seated in a stndious
attitude. To the right ol' you is Ilincolnls second inaugural address. and to the
left the full text of his Gettysburg address cut' into marble slabs surmounted hy
mural paintings. llefore you descend the broad. gently sloping steps, stop and
get the effect of the view. llireetly opposite is the sky-piercing Washington
monument, an ohelisk, which seems about a block away, but is many hloeks in the
distance. Washington is truthfully called "The Pity of Magnificent Distances."
There a1'e such wide intervening spaces, that as you look you see a building to
which you decide to walk because it is only a .l'ew blocks away, but once you have
started you discover that what looked like hloeks is really so many miles. Be-
tween the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument is the Tidal Basin,
a. backwater of the Potomac River, whieh looks like a fair-sized lake. Fompletely
encircling this body of water are the liillllllllhi cherry trees, which were then in full
bloom. The pale pink, .teatliery blossoms of these .l'apa11ese eherry trees are so
exquisitely beautiful that they are full recompense, for this variety of tree bears
no cherries. lf saw them for the first time just at dusk, when the lights and
blossoms were reflected in the basin. I think all Wasl1'i11g'ton must have turned
