12 THE BEACON FKANUES PENNEY Class of 1934 " The light of her young life went down As sinks behind the hill The glory of a setting star-- Clear, Beautiful and still." Frances left us after we had been in High School only five months. We missed her and we always shall. Frances was a student of rare ability. She was conservative, but friendly. She was sympathetic toward all. Frances took an active part in all school and church alfairs. She was loved by all, and so when she passed on, a breach was left which never shall be filled. WVe loved Frances more than we can say here. She possessed wonderful traits which we have not mentioned, but there is something else--Frances was one of us--we mingled to- gether--we knew one another--we loved one another, and so you see, when Frances said "Goodbye" there was something more than a classmate leaving ns which pained our hearts--our friend, Frances, had left us: we were parted. No more would we see her, no more would she smile on us--no, never again in this world would we meet! They say anyone can be forgotten. This may be true enough when perhaps some person has left no good impressions behind him, but not so with Frances-- every dillicult subject reminds us of her, we wonder if she would have mastered it as she did so many other difficult things. Our decisions bring her to mind--Oh, we can as easily forget Frances as we can escape our consciences! lint be those things as they may, Frances is gone-- but "We cannot say, and we will not say That she is dead, she is just--away, With a cheery smile and a wave of her hand She has wandered into an unknown land, And left us thinking how very fair It needs must be, since she lingers there."

THE BEACON 11 the going as pleasant as possible. They have seen that our feet did not stray from the path of education. But now, it is up to us whether or not We shall continue in that path. lWe intend to! We could go 011 and mention other pleasant memories-but why should we? No matter how delicately we worded our thoughts, you could never quite appreciate our feelings, you could not feel those pangs which now seize us. So now, with the feeling of friends who have been inseparable for years- but at last must separate-we reluc- tantly bid you, dear Friends and Teachers, "Farewell, " O.B.H.S BONERS "VVho was Napoleon's wife?" "Mrs, Napoleon." "How did the Titanic sink?" "It ran aground-no, it struck a rock." "VVhat did the Normans go explor- ing for?" "They went exploring to find women. " "What ma11 is connected with Mar- tha's Vineyard?" ' A Columbus. H "Now don't take the girls away from their hands." "Give your opinion of Gibbons as a writer." "He wanted to write an immoral work that would last forever." 'Johnson lived on Fleet Street when he died." "'Who were the other countries in the Congress of Vienna besides Eng- land, Austria, and France?" "Great Britain." "What are gyroscopes used for?" '4They are used on large ocean liners to keep them from getting sea- sick." "Trees have many enemies-like fungi, insects, and moths." "What was your rate of palpifa- tion?,' "Ninety beats per second!" "What is veal?" "A baby lamb." 'tln what district is Oak Bluffs?" "District of Columbia." "Now, Mr. Merrill, suppose you should sit down on your knees . . ." "What is an obituary?" "A place where they keep fish." 'lrirnciis GI. Egunlzleg, gliil, QB.

THE BEACON f if .fx KU. e A ff ... lM lUUlllllllll "1V'lUl '-f ' T '3f1!if:iT, Barbara Bowman, Editor Helen Rose, Assistant Editor HAMLET VVho killed the King of Denmark? Did tl1e Queen have anything to do with the murder of her husband U? Did Hamlet really love Ophelia? lVas Ham- let's madness real or feigned? How did the Ghost's story affect Hamlet? These questions and others come to us when we read f'Hamlet',. t'Hamlet" is a tragedy. It is not a drama of action but a psychological study, therefore, the plot lies not in the deed itself but i11 the method of doing the deed. It is lIamlet's train of thought that leads to tl1is failure, that really creates the plot of the drama. Another part of tl1e plot, a kind of sub-plot, centers about the afl fairs of Pt lonius and l1is family. The catastrophe is 11ot reached by the gradual development of the scenes as in other dramasg but rushes on the reader with surprise and rapidity. At one moment all the principal charac- ters stand before the reader, and at another they lie before him, dead. It seems as though, after the will of man had been baffled in every attempt lo disentangle the tragic knot, the hand of Heaven itself had been suddenly stretched out to avenge the murder. The tragedy shows the unfitfulness of a thoughtful, studious man, who sees both sides of the subject, to deal with situations requiring prompt ac- tion under extraordinary circum- stances. Hamlet suspected from the first that his father had died by foul means. VVith the appearance of the Ghost, Hamlet's suspicion was verified, also he was practically sure that it was his uncle who l1ad been the murderer of his father. Hamlet resolved to feign madness so that he might become very certain that his suspicions were true, before he made any accusations. Gertrude the Queen, becoming anxious at Ham- let's apparent madness, summons Hamlet to her boudoir. Polonius lllfid hidden behind the curtain, spying for the King. Hamlet became aware of his presence, and, i11 a fit of anger, thrust l1is rapier through the curtain alnd killed his fathers spy. Ophelia, the daughter of Polonius, was in love with Hamlet. Upon the death of her father, and the seeming indifference of llam- let toward her, Ophelia became de- pressed and committed suicide. Ham- let l1ad bee11 sent away by tl1e King, who determined to make away with Hamlet because he realized that Ham- let was becoming suspicious of him. Hamlet successfully eluded the King's messengers, who had bee11 Sellt with him, and returned to Denmark. The King, seeing that this plan l1ad been unsuccessful, plans with Laertes, who was bitter against Hamlet because he held the latter responsible for the death of his father and sister, to en- gage Hamlet i11 a duel and to defeat
