WW THE SCHOOL: PASTl PRESENT AND FUTURE WHEN one looks back to the rude log cabin schools of a century ago, one smiles at the recollection of Ichabod Crane as told by Washington Irving and thinks, llWhat a queer place school was in those days l3, Who knows, but that one hundred years from now, people will laugh at our llprimitive-likell build- ings? Perhaps an entirely new method of teaching will be adopted. The great achievement performed in creating the junior high school may be scoffed at as lichildishfi Maybe a junior high pupil will ride to the ninetieth Hoor of a building to attend a Class, and that changing periods will mean riding up and down in elevators, soaring to immense heights in a few seconds. However, these are but guesses, unproven as yet. Will the schools of the future produce greater men than the log-cabin-educated Lincoln? Or, will the knowledge gained tend to make people rely on machines and other inventions for their support? These are but questionsewith answers a century in the distance. Donald Keene Go 0c.

EDITQRlAL THE connecting link between the faculty and the student body is the General Organization. The training we receive as pupils of Seth Low in the work- ings of the General Organization will develop in us an interest in Civic affairs which we will carry the rest of our lives. The General Organization is a governmental body consisting of students governing the activities of the student body. It is governed by a president and a council which forms the executive department, a group of grade councils making up the legislative departmnt and a student court forming the judiciary department. The workings of these various departments not only help control the activities of our school but give us a voice in its governmnet. For the privileges obtained in the General Organization we owe it our undivided support. Our meagre contribution to the General Organization helps foster such activities as Clubs, athletics, movies, plays and other extra-eurrieular activities of our school but give us a voice in its government. make it possible for these activities to continue but we give ourselves the chance to have a say in the matters concerning the student body. Mortimer Rogoff THE SPECTATOR PageThree Dear Girls and Boys: This is another excellent issue of our school paper. I have watched it in the making, step by step, and I have been very happy to see the earnestness with which you worked for the success of the undertaking. When people work together, as you have done, sacrificing personal convenience and individual credit in a common undertaking, success is inevitable. We have had many Visitors at our school this term, some from other Cities, and one from a foreign country. One and all, they have been impressed by the fine spirit of friendliness and co-operation that they saw throughout the school. Our ctSpectatorji is just one of the many outcomes of that fine school spirit. Let us keep it up! When we all work together, everybody doing what he can, nobody trying to shirk, nobody looking for advantages that would mean injustice to somebody else, how happy we are, and how successful. If all people, everywhere, would work in this spirit, many of our cares and troubles would vanish. Perhaps, if you carry this ideal of service and cooperation from your school to your family, your neighborhood, your City, and your nation, you will set an example that others may imitate. Perhaps you will be among the leaders who will guide our beloved country to new happiness and new prosperity. Who knows? Sincerely yours, PageFour THE SPECTATOR E! V . J 3X N. 1335 , SETH LOX?

Drawn by Marvin Fredrick, RC5 T H E S P E C T A T 0 R Page Twenty-one THE RELATIVITY 0F TIME T is difficult for me to state the real beginning of the events that led up to the relating of one of the strangest stories ever propounded by man. Suf- fice it to say that I met, was introduced to, and soon became Close friends with Mr. Thicourt. One day, he invited me to his apartment. I was admitted by a bowing Hindu whom I followed through a maze of oriental rugs and strange drapes to the cozy library. Ob- viously it was the apartment of a rover. A stone god from Yucatan frowned at a coolie hat on the opposite wall, while the fat green Buddha of unfathomable age sat smiling on a curiously woven rug. As the Hindu left to notify his master of my presence, my attention became riveted upon a picture on one of the walls. It was a painting of a Roman galley slave, Chained to his bench, drooping with toil and marked with the stripes of the driver,s whip. As I stared at those tired, anguished eyes from which all hope seemed to have died, I suddenly, with a wave of horror recognized the face of Mr. Thi- court. There was but one difference, Mr. Thicourtls Cheek had a scar that seemed to have been deliberately made, while the face of the slave was smooth and in no way marred. IiYou are startled at the likeness ?i' I whirled about to face the doorway where Thicourt was standing with a faint smile on his lips and answered: III am more than startled, I am sim- ply shocked by the likeness? IIThere is a story to that painting, would you like to hear about it ?l, I nodded in assent and we both took Chairs and made ourselves com- fortable. He began his story. iIIt was a warm night in the year Page Twenty-two of 523 B.C. A man whom we shall call Arto, was walking along the sea- shore of ancient Greece that bordered on the Mediterranean. He was too ab- sorbed with his thoughts to notice that a boat had been beached behind him. A moment later, there was a fierce wild struggle with the band of ruflians who finally knocked their victim uncon- scious. When he regained his senses he was made a galley slave. One day, the ship came to port at a city that was a trade secret, and of which only a few merchants knew. Here, the slave saw a Chance to escape. He waited until the men on board had fallen into a drunken stupor and then dived over- board. His escape was immediately noticed by an alert guard who in- stantly gave chase. The slave soon out- distanced his pursuers, and he ran for his life while they merely ran to recap- ture a runaway slave. Suddenly he ran into a temple before him to ask sanctuary. As he ran toward the wood- en image of a goddess, he noticed in its shadow, a young woman, beautiful beyond description. He hastily im- plored her aid and as the capturers ran up the stone steps that led to the temple she touched a hidden spring and a trapdoor opened at the base of 7 the huge image. Arto stumbled for- ward into the opening and the door instantly shut behind him. The search- ers soon tired of the Chase and left the temple. In this manner did Arto meet the Priestess, Thora. clIn the following weeks, Thora im- parted all her knowledge to Arto. All went well until Prah, the head priest of the temple discovered Arto. The scene that followed, changed the en- tire course of Artds life. The priest, THE SPECTATOR mad with jealousy, drew his dagger and slashed Artois face. Arto, full of rage and pain, leaped at Prah but was pulled back by some of the lesser priests and with Thora was thrown into a dungeon. Thora continued to be cheerful and upon being asked by Arto for the reason of her cheerfulness since they were going to be put to death, she answered: ii cI did not intend to tell you so abruptly but since time is valuable I will tell you the entire truth without any preliminaries. I am an emissary from another planet, Allos by name. The men from Allos are to be here to- day and they will save usf Thora had taught Arto that nothing was impos- sible and therefore he took this news and accepted it as the truth. Suddenly they found themselves out of their prison room and in a space-ship. The men of Allos had found out where they had been hidden and had taken them through the fourth dimension to the ship. The ship then set out for home, the blue planet of Allos. Arto learned many things here and in a few years tAllos timey he made ready to go back to the Earth. When he came back he was in another century. Astonished, he went back to Allos to seek an ex-' planation. This was it. Allos was a planet of a lower density, the Vibration of the atom was therefore retarded. A person would grow old more slowly. It was sometime before he could recon- cile himself to the loss of his family and his friends but he soon forget his loss in study? The story was finished and I gazed at him with astonishment, as he rose I saw that he wanted me to leave. I bid him a friendly good-bye and he walked away with his strange story still ringing in my ears. I never saw him again.

Radio Repair Man Scene I Place: Home of John Bowers after being returned by a kidnapper for $7 5,000. Time: 10 oiclock in the morning. Bowers: Smith, I've lost a large piece of my fortune. I must get it back. Smith: 111 do my best to get it back for you. Now can you describe your kidnappers. Bowers: No, he wore a mask. Smith: Do you know where you were taken? Bowers: Yes, I was taken to 550 Chester Avenue. S mith : Now give me the two ransom notes you received. Bowers: tGoes out and returns in a few minutes and returns with the ransom notesy Here you are but I donTt see what you can get from them. Smith: I think 111 go to 5 50 Chester Avenue. Scene II Place: 550 Chester Avenue. Time: 12 oiclock noon. Smith: There are three people living in this house. I must eliminate two of them. The other one will be the kidnapper. Smith: tDeep in thoughtsy Whafs this I have in my pocket? Oh, the ransom notes; the first one says: JOHN BOWERS: IiSend me $75,000 in five 81 ten dollar bills. If you do not you will be kidnapped. Hand the money to a man wearing a brown suit and hat. He will be at 550 Chester Avenue? The second one says: John Bowers: iiDo not give the man the money. Instead in the left side of the yacht Norfolk. In New York Harbor? Smith: tTelephoning to the policey Capt. White arrest Morris Black for the kidnapping of John Bowers. Scene III Place: Home of John Bowers. Time: 4 oiclock in the afternoon. Bowers: Smith, why did you arrest Black for my kidnapping? Smith: Hereis the story Mr. Bowers. In the first note kidnapped was spelled K-I-D-N-A-P-E-D. It was spelled wrong. The English Instructor would spell it right. That eliminates the instructor. In the second note it said left hand side of the yacht. That eliminaes the sailor who would have said star- board. So that leaves the Radio Repair Man guilty. Seymour Comassar, RB6 Page Twenty-four T H E S P E C T A T O R AN UNUSUAL DREAM WAS lying on a deserted beach basking in the sun. Through my head ran idle thoughts and among these were some about Treasure Isl- and. The monotonous rolling of the waves soothed my nerves as I stared blankly over the horizon. In the dis- tance I could see an old wind-jam- mer sailing towards the shore. Nearer and nearer it came until I could see figures on it. Finally when it was a few hundred yards from the shore, a boat was lowered and some men got into it. The men rowed the boat and then to my horror I saw that they were pirates. They had gleaming cut- lasses in their teeth and muskets rest- ing on their laps. The leader I rec- ognized as Black Dog and there was Job Anderson, the first mate, and Israel Hands, the canonneer. I was paralyzed with fear. cILookf said Black Dog, githereis a lad on the beach yonder. Grab himP, iiAye, aye sir? they shouted as they hastened to obey their leader. I started to run but to no avail as they soon caught me. They took me back to the boat and rowed me to the ship. The first person I noticed as I went aboard the ship was Long John Silver. His eyes gleamed when he saw me. IIAha, a nice boy and he looks as smart as paint. Too bad, but it must be done? He pointed an ugly look- ing pistol at me. iiTie his hands and put something around his eyes? My heart was filled with terror. IiI didnit do anything. What are you going to do with mePII I asked as a pirate was tieing my hands. At this his frame shook with a hideous, rocking, laughter and once more he brandished his weapon at me and I looked into its deep black muzzle. IIYouill find that out in a few min- utes, me fine ladf, he replied. Then my eyes were covered with a iilthy rag. Somebody jabbed a pistol deep into my ribs and ordered me to walk straight ahead. I obeyed and after walking a few steps I stepped on nothingness and plunged to the water below. For a moment I struggled in the icy waters and then I awoke to find myself still lying on the beach but the tide had come in and a small wave had just swept over me. There in the distance I could see the same old wind-jammer with the large white sails iilled with a breeze and the top- masts bobbing dehantly in the wind. Morton Rosenberg, 9A1 THE WIND AT NIGHT When the wind whistles and howls at night, It fairly makes me shiver with fright. Under the covers I quickly scurry, And pray to God to make the night hurry. THE SPECTATOR The lovely moonlight streaks across my bed, Like a million strands of yellow thread. But with it all I shiver with fright, When I hear the wind howling at night. Rhoda Knecht, 9A1 Page Twenty-nve AN EMBARASSI NG SITUATION HE incident which I am about to relate occurred a few years ago but I remember each little detail as if it happened yesterday. It was just before a spelling test and I discovered that I had no ink. With the consent of my teacher, I went to the closet for some. I noticed that my teacher was irritated for I annoyed her with petty details, such as, discov- ering the closet was locked, obtaining the keys, using a dozen different keys before using the right one and other little things that would vex the most sweet tempered person. After delaying the class for about ten minutes, I ran to my seat with the can of ink, feeling, I can assure you very much like a goose, very conspicuous and very much like the prize dunce of the class. But fate with all her mis- chievous pranks had to make me the laughing stock once more for just as I was about to be seated, I slipped and fell, ink and all, getting the ink all over myself and another unfortunate victim, my neighbor, Selma Bernholtz. Now, how would you feel if you were in my place? In other words I felt as though I were a fool, a ninny, a simpleton, and everything else per- taining to stupidity. The mess was Cleaned and cleared. I knew my teacher was exasperated and provoked but got the better of her temper, for she only said, disgustedly, IlWell, Laura, did you get enough ink Em And I, thinking she had meant in my inkwell, replied, tho, Mrs. Taffet, I didnit get anyW At which those Children laughed, as I had never heard them laugh before. Strange as it may seem, every word is true. Yet, I saved the day, for we didnlt have a spelling test. Laura Dunn, R03 0 0 O SETH LOW. OUR SCHOOL T last I am a student of Seth Well do I remember the days when I used to gaze with open admiration and awe at the huge white building of which I am now so proud. Well do I remember how I used to envy those students that marched proudly from within its walls. Well do I remember how I used to wish that I, too, could attend Seth Low. Nor am I sorry! For here we are treated as if we were high school stu- dents; the teachers are not any better -but, somehow they are differentre more likeable. It is indeed a pleasure to be here. The building itself is beautiful and Low l Page Twenty-six attractive. Its halls are clean and nice. It is not so much those things alone that have made me lirm in my opin- ion of Seth Low. It is the fine spirit that prevails here; the spirit that never says tidiefi One meets new friends, new com- panions. One becomes older mentally. One is swept along in the general rush to oneis goal. I could continue to praise Seth Low. I could tell of the tradition of the school. I could write of the heroes of Seth Low. But, it would be ilold stuff? We, who are here know. Yes, we love our Seth Low! Judith Vogel, RA5 THE SPECTATOR FISH EYES Characters Jim Hanvy .................................... Detective Mary Jones .........

The bull has been starved and an- noyed for days in expectation of the coming event. The matadors in blues, greens and yellows wave red blankets. The bull is very nearsighted, he can only see redahe dashes at the Cloth. The matadors swiftly step to the side, one pranees on a horse, the bull tears toward the horse, and rips its side open. The horse falls in a pool of blood, the crowd cheers, as the mata- dor plunges a spear in the bullis side. Then the matadors dance about in circles, the bull goes around too, and is weakened by the loss of blood of his wound. After the bull is suf- iiciently tired, a bugle is sounded, and all the other matadors but the chief one leave, and the principle matador draws a sword. He watches a moment and then plunges the sword into the bullis brainethe bull is dead. The crowd cheers ilBravo, bravo? and the great brave m matador takes his bows. The bull fight is over.

We were enjoying ourselves im- mensely at the birthday party, when, without warning the lights went out. I heard a loud and deafening report somewhat like a gun, but in that room I felt a sharp and piercing pain go through it sounded like a cannon. my shoulder, and my senses left me. When I came to, I found myself in a small room that was illuminated by a tallow candle that flickered with the breeze that came through an open window. My shoulder ached hercely and my Clothes were full of blood. I heard footsteps approaching and then the door flew open. I saw a sight that startled me. There a man stood with a face that only a mother could love on pay day. His eyes were twisted around in a peculiar manner, two fingers were missing from his left hand and his right ear was gone. He came towards me, and I started to get up, but I found that I was tied to a bed. In his hand, he held a dissecting knife. He tore my shirt and jacket off my chest and just as I was about to be cut up I awoke and found myself on a white bed in a hospital ward. Then I remembered that I had awakened from the effects of ether that I had received before my operation for appendicitis. Gilbert Miller, 9B7 THE SPECTATOR LOST IN A CAVE WITH only a flickering oil lamp lighting their way Dick and Timothy slowly moved about in the cave near their camp. The lamp glowed brilliantly for a moment and then faded. Groping in the dark, Dick stumbled and having no light they didn,t attempt to open the box. Dick then suggested that they take the box outside the cave. They started back, but after walking for several minutes and not finding the exit they realized they were lost. Tired and having nothing to do they went to sleep. They hoped that a searching party from the camp would find them. While they lay sleeping a stealthy creature crawled toward them and touched them. The boys awoke in terror and screamed. They felt something warm licking their faces. It was a dog, the camp mascot who had followed their trail. They fol- lowed the dog and were soon out of the dark cave. At camp surrounded by a crowd of fellows the box the boys found was opened. At the bot- tom lay a little book, faded and worn, with the word llDiary3l written in ink on its torn cover. It was, they later found out, the diary of a hermit. Dorothy Kraines, R03 COMPOSITE STO RY The following story was composed by each pupil of Class R34 contrib- uting one sentence. My class was walking through the park when Alice shouted, ccHelp! Help ll, Everybody turned, frightened, to the direction from where the shout came. Their eyes met Alicels whose eyes were sparkling with fear. There was the dog ready to bite Alice. We got sticks but we were afraid to strike the dog. After a minute of. thinking we all decided to make the noise of a cat. The noise didn,t help any, but made the dog slowly move toward the other children of the class, with a murderous look in his eyes. Though the Children knew it would do no good to run, they ran anyway, with the dog running after them. At last they came to an abandoned shack and they ran into it for shelter. When they were in the shack and the door tightly shut they turned around and there they saw an old man. They were so astonished they could not utter a word, stood still like dummies. The man had a fierce look on his face, but said in a kind voice, gWhat would you prefer, chocolate ice cream or strawberry?

We traveled for an hour until we reached Lexington Avenue, Manhattan, from where we pro- ceeded to Park Avenue and the Hall of Education of the City of New York. From where we stood in front of the edifice, could be seen a tall, imposing grey-stone structure, nine stories in height. Rather awed, we ascended, via elevator, to the seventh floor, on which Dr. Campbellis oHice was situated. Imagine our disappointment and chagrin, to find that the superintendent was too busy to be interviewed by anybody. The secretary, however, referred us to Dr. Veit, Superintendent of Junior High Schools in New York City. We again ascended in the elevator to the ninth floor and Dr. Veitis oflice. Upon hearing our request for an interview, his secretary bade us wait for the return of the superintendent. After fifteen minutes wait, we were ushered into the presence of that genial person who put us at ease by his friendly manner. Our interview con- sisted of a few questions, which he answered with very clear explanation of which the following gives the important points: Ques.: Do you believe in compulsory education? Why or why not? Ans. : Every school man believes in it. If there wasnit a compulsory law, there would be a tremendous number of children roaming around the streets. Ques.: Do you think that the use of the newspaper is of greater value to the Civics classes than the text-book? Why? Ans.: Yes. Newspapers contain more real, live information, concerning what is going on in the city and country. Ques.: Do you believe in exemptions from the final tests? Why or why not? Ans.: I see no advantage in exempting anybody from the tests. I think everybody should take them. Ques: What do you think of homework as a whole? Ans.: The certain amount of home study is necessary to cover the work of each grade. In a class of 35 or more, the teacher cannot hear more than 8 or 10 pupils recite and therefore the preparation of it at home, is to some extent a substitute for what in small classes can be done in school. Ques.: Do you think that a supervised study period is helpful to the students? Page Thirty-four T H E S P E C T A T O R Ans.: Yes, one of the hardest things, for any boy or girl, is to learn how to study. A supervised study period is intended to teach a pupil how to learn something by himself. This was an enlightening thirty minutes, and we left the office of our City Superintendent, fully satisfied that it was an afternoon well-spent. Muriel Rodnon, RD3 Evelyn Lasky, RD2 O . O INTERVIEW WITH BOROUGH PRESIDENT RAYMOND V. INGERSOLL COMING from the hubub of the subway we entered the street. We walked amid campaigners of the various parties who were campaigning for the coming election. In a few minutes we were gazing upon our Borough Hall. After climbing a long fiight of stairs we entered a hall covered with many portraits of famous political men. Since these oil paintings attracted our attention we were in- terested in finding out who they were. One of the first pictures that we noticed was a beautiful portrait of Mayor Seth Low after whom our school is named. After a while we walked into the waiting office of our Borough President. The secretary in this office told us that Mr. Ingersoll was away on a mission in Manhattan, but was expected there any minute. Then we were ushered into Mr. Brownis office tMr. IngersolPs private secretaryy and he said that he would be glad to answer any questions while we were waiting for Mr. IngersolPs arrival. A few minutes later the Borough President arrived. We were shown into his private office where he greeted us cordially. He told us to be seated and he would answer our questions. We asked him the following questions: Ques.: In view of the iire hazards, donit you think builders should be prohibited from building frame dwellings? Ans.: Fire Limits are established by the Board of Fire Underwriters. The larger part of Flatbush is now within the Limits. New frame buildings may not be built within the Limits unless they are built after special permission is obtained. Qua: Cannot appropriations be made so that roads may be constructed wholly instead of in parts as at present? Ans.: Usually we do construct the roads and complete them. Some roads have been surfaced to give the unemployed men work. Ques.: Do you think that Junior High Schools are an essential link be- tween Public School and High School Education? Ans.: Yes, I think that they form a valuable part in the education system. THE SPECTATOR Page Thirty-five Qua: Do you think that an appropriation can be obtained to complete building the Public Library at Grand Army Plaza and Eastern Parkway? Ans. : The library was started on elaborate and expensive plans. In recent years the City has been in such financial dilheulties that it is impossible to , finish the library. The appropriation necessary is estimated at $Io,ooo,ooo.oo. Ques.: What efforts are being made to eliminate the cess pools now existing? Ans.: Just as soon as we can get the money to construct sewers we will do it. As our interview was over we again shook hands with the Borough President and left his office. We walked silently down the steps of Borough Hall, each girl thoughtfully considering the preceding interview. Evelyn Lasky, RD2 Jessica Greenberg, RD2 O . O A REVEALING TALK WITH DR. 6. R. MASON NE sunny afternoon, I left the school and went to Abraham Lincoln High . School to interview Dr. Mason. I arrived and dashed up the long white staircase in front of the beautiful building. I was bewildered when I entered, for all about me were rooms with signs indicating various activities. I walked down a long corridor and finally saw a sign, tIPrincipalis OfHCC,,, and I walked in. After waiting a few minutes, during which I talked to the principals secretary, I went into Dr. Mason,s olhce. After speaking a few words to Dr. Mason, I started my interview. After having always seen that most of our famous inventors and scientists always came from some small town I naturally asked Dr. Mason if he thought . that the out of town schoolboy had as good or better education than a boy who had been educated in New York. Dr. Mason replied, ItNo, the city boy has many advantages that the country boy has not, from an educational standpoint. The schools are usually well built, they have room for sports, they have libraries, auditoriums as large as some theatres, drawing rooms and in Lincoln we have a swimming pool, with 4, 500 lockers, a rifle room, and in fact Lincoln cost $5,000,000 to build. The text books are excellent, clear and well written, so that the pupil may more readily understand his work. The teachers are well prepared, they must take examinations before they may become a training teacher, after that the teacher becomes a substitute for about one year and then finally becomes a teacher. They have new methods of teaching and know how to make pupils graSp the work. Formerly the person who was a teacher, was a failure in other fields of life, and eouldnit do anything else, and was laughed at and mocked as shown by Irving in his story about Ichabod Crane. Now a teacher is a respected person, and important in community life. The aims are better, for nowadays in our big schools they do not only want to 'Page Thirty-six T H E S P E C T A T 0 R stuff knowledge into onels head, they want to develop the persons character, physically, socially and spiritually. As an example, a teacher here, once taught in a school of 400 pupils in the country, 260 were in primary school, 160 being in high school, all packed in one small school, how could anyone get as good an education in one of those schools as in one of our fine schools? But there are two advantages of a country school, the first being that since it is smaller more individual attention can be shown throughout the school, although in this school we try to overcome the fact that we have 7,000 pupils by pick- ing out the individual who needs help and suggesting that he join one of our clubs, that will help him. Secondly, the location. With all the beautiful scenery about-one, one cannot but help become a nature lover. Climbing orchards, feeding chickens, riding a horse through the country all help to build the persons body. But on the whole, the city schoolboy has a better time of it than the country boy. YAw gee? say many boys and girls, ffwhy do I have to leave Seth Low? Why canit there be a high school attached to it? I hate to leave, itill be so strange in my new high? Hereis why, as told by Dr. Mason. ffThe adjust- ment isn,t so terrible as pictured, for, didnlt you all change from grammar school to junior high? True, the first few days everything seemed strange, but after that did you mind it? Do you think of your old school anymore except on a few occasions? When you graduate from Seth Low to some other high, you continue, your work getting more diHicult as you go along, but still the same idea. Besides, in life you'must adjust yourselves many times, first when you go to grammar school, to junior high, to high school, to college, and perhaps to a special school for your profession. If you had no Changes up to the end of high school, you would have a terrible time when you left home for college. It has been tried in the cases of Seward, Franklin K. Lane and Walton that a junior high be followed by a senior high in the same building. It was a terrible failure, the junior high students saying, fI wish those big pests would get out, and the seniors saying II wish those little runts would get out; and the teachers were jealous of each other, and there was never any harmony. In all due fairness, the plan was not worked out as well as it could, for the buildings were small, old and had no facilities. Everything was too crowded, and no one was actually ready for this experiment. These unions have been broken up within the last few years, and considering all sides, I don,t think boys and girls are so badly off, and they must get used to adjustments? Lastly, many say, ffWhat am I supposed to do, in order to be an ideal high school student? I donit know what they want of me." I asked Dr. Mason and this is what he told me: cc1. You must be healthy. You cannot stay away from school every few days and expect to be clever, and you must be able to withstand cold, heat and rain, and snow, so that you can get your full benefit of school. 2. You must be intelligent, by that I mean you must understand information-wax to receive and marble to retain. That is, in- formation must penetrate your head as if it was wax, but must stay in as if it T H E S P E C T A T O R Page Thirty-seven was marble. Some pupils have it the opposite way, marble to receive and wax to retain. After hours and hours of drilling the pupil finally gets iti and after another hour, the information is lost again, for the wax was too soft to keep the information in the head. He must be hungry for knowledge and not only study because he has to, but do it because he really wants to progress. 3. He must have an excellent character. He can be the strongest, healthiest man, he can be the most intelligent and he can use these advantages to becom- ing an outlaw. By character, courage, consideration, handiness, and various other likewise things are meant. 4. He must use the school to its fullest ad- vantages. He must use the library, join clubs, join some athletic team, and do similar things. 5. He must be of service to the school, in the various ways such as watching exits, errand-boy in the ohice, post the bulletins, help the school paper, do tirst aid service, be usher at baseball or football games, cafeteria monitor, attendance monitor or help in the auditorium. These five points make an ideal high school student? After asking Dr. Mason several other questions, I thanked him and went on my way, happy that I had had such a successful interview.

Complex studies, the perilous work of legions of men down through the centuries, and the gradual annihilation of disease form an appealing background. Many a Seth Low studerit has felt its magnetic inspiration for either a favorite hobe' or a life work. Every nook and corner in our laboratories is occupied with living and preserved specimens, most of which have been furnished by past or present pupils as an expression of' their active interest. This study has many branches, each with unlimited possibilities. The one which capti-i vates me most is microscopy, the study of those invisible beings, which have harassedeall. humanity. This phase is most outstanding in recent achievements. Leeuwenhok, the first. man ever to see microbes through the single lens, perfected a compound microscope. Follow- ing closely upon this invention, such men as Pasteur, Koch, and Reed blazed the trail for mod-e ern methods in the cure and prevention of infectious diseases. At present only a few of the more elusive microbes have evaded the ever watchful eyes of the bacteriologists. If we add to this highly specialized study of the unseen world about us, a knowledge of the structure and function of all living things, we have formed a strong enough background to appreciate in every sense of the word that biology is indeed the science of life.

Having been promised a microscope when I reached the ninth grade, I urged my parents to purchase one for me when I reached home that day. My parents consented to my hav- ing a microscope, and when I received it, I set it up and read the directions very carefully. The specimen slide that I received with the microscope was a soft down feather of a bird. When I examined it under the microscope, I was unable to focus it correctly. I reread the direc- tions and discovered that I had for- gotten to adjust the mirror. When I had the specimen focused correctly, I observed the barbules which are inter- locking hooks of microscopic size, that hold the barbs together. With the microscope I received di- rections for making slides. I followed these directions, and my first attempt was with a piece of potato. I took the scrapings from the underside of a po- tato peel and placed them on a clean slide. With a dropper I put a drop of water on the potato and slowly low- ered a cover slide. I placed the slide under the microscope and I anticipated seeing the starch grains but instead I was able to see only something white. My failure did not discourage me and I decided to use the directions I had received in class for making slides. I cut a very thin piece of the underside of a begonia leaf and mounted it in petrolatum on a clean slide. On this, I put a slide cover and then placed it under the microscope. When I exam- ined the leaf, I was able to see the lower epidermis cells, the function of which is to prevent the loss of water, the stomates which regulate transpira- tion of water, and the guard cells which regulate the size of the stomates. I have examined many other things under the microscope and I find it a very fascin- ating study. The N. R. A. has given people more leisure time which they will be look- ing for something to occupy. They will lind it very interesting to try to become another Leeuwenhoek or see germs for the first time as Pasteur did. This sub- ject is not only for people who want to become scientists or biologists but also for people who want a refined, f as- cinating, and educational pastime. Gloria Spiegel O . 0 AN INTERESTING INTERVIEW On Tuesday, Decemebr fourth, two enterprising interviewers tried their luck with Dr. Reed of the Botanical Gardens. The question they asked was quite general, namelyewhat work was he doing. He replied that he was experimenting with the hereditary susceptibility and resistance of oats towards two different varieties of Page Forty smuts, a form of bacteria parasitic upon grains. In the middle part of the nineteenth century, Greger Mendel experimented with heredity in peas. He made some interesting experiments and discoveries, but his work was not recognized until recently. In our own time, Luther Burbank has applied the knowledge THE SPECTATOR gleaned by the Austrian monk in de- veloping new fruits. The plumeot, seedless grapefruit, and similar hybrids bring a popular interest to this work. Dr. Reed, however, is not doing his research for economic value, but pure- ly along scientific lines. He is experi- menting ehieHy with the resistance of oats towards loose and covered smuts. As oats are self-pollinated plants, the crossing may be done in one simple operation. The resulting hybrids are re-crossed, and tally is taken of the third generation. We shall follow one of his experiments, and see what re- sults. Two varieties of oats are crossed, one of them being resistant to both smuts and the other susceptible to both. The resulting hybrids are a mixture, some susceptible to one smut and not to an- other, etc. In the third generation dehnite conclusions are reached. Twen- ty-five per cent of the oats are suscep- tible to both, twenty-five resistant to both, and fifty per cent are a mixture, at times suscepible and at times resis- tant. However, susceptibility is the dominating Characteristic, and this fifty per cent may be classed as susceptible. Thus, seventy-five per cent are suscep- tible, and twenty-iive' per cent resistant, proving Mendelis 3:1 ratio which is always observed in crossing different varieties of plants. Bernard Winkler and Louis Landman MICROPHOTOGRAPHY Mierophotography is the study of photographing microscopic objects. It has its main use in recording the prog- ress and development of specimens. Its use is invaluable to the medical pro- fession. Having been in use only about ten years, it is practically a new dis- covery, the future of which has un- limited possibilities for science. The amateur will find a world of in- terest in this subject. It is an inexpen- sive hobby to take up. The camera in conjunction with the microscope can easily be rigged up at home. The camera should be of the ground glass variety and the miscroseope one that can be tilted back horizontally. A source of light, perferably a photofiood bulb, is necessary. The microscope must be lying exact- ly horizontally with the camera on a line with it. The front set of lenses THE SPECTATOR T20" must be removed before using the ca- mera. A strip of black velvet should be wrapped around the joint between the camera and microscope. After placing the slide upon the stage, it should be focused by placing the bulb under the stage, and then without having any film in the camera, expose the ground glass, and adjust your camera for time. Then work your rack and pinion until a sharp image is visible on the ground glass, and expose the film for ,one or two seconds. These pictures will afford you a great deal of pleasure, if they are done in the right way. One afternoon the Camera Club for a novelty tried making mierophoto- graphs of the villi of the small intestine and the paramecium. We followed every instruction to the letter, all of us giving helpful hints. But unfortunate- ly we underestimated the power of the Page Forty-one photo flood bulb, because the nega- tives turned out too dark to be printed. However, when held up to the light, we could see the pictures fairly clearly. Encouraged by this small measure of success, I decided to try making some at home. I used my own microscope and camera to photograph a prepared slide showing a flyls wing. Having prolited by the mistakes made in the Club period, I have every reason to believe that by the time this article goes to press, my efforts will have been crowned with success. If you, too, are a budding scientist, you will discover that after a little ex- perimentation, you will feel that you are almost ready to call yourself an amateur microphotographer. Herbert Schlesinger O . C THE FIGHT BETWEEN THE WHITE CORPUSCLES AND TETANUS BACTERIA Time: Any time during the day. Place: Inside a girIs body. Characters: White corpuscles, red corpuscles, bacteria, and anti-toxin. White Corpuscle: Pm disgusted at the way this human body is acting, aren,t you? Red Corpuscle: I certainly am. If anything should happen to her, it would take a long time to cure, be- cause she does not supply us with enough nourishment. White Corpuscle: I donit believe in this dieting busines anyway. Shes thin enough already, and sheill suffer for this silly nonsense soon. I feel it in my nucleus. We have a very small supply of oxygen and opsonins at head- quarters. Red Corpuscle: Since you are speak- ing about headquarters, there seems to be some trouble there right now. Letis see what it is. tThey both rush to the scene of ex- citement, where numerous white cor- puscles are assembledy White Corpuscle: Good-bye, my friend. I fear there is going to be a fight, and somehow I feel very weak for the fray. Page Forty-two Red Corpuscle: Good-bye. I hope you are Victorious. tAll white corpuscles line up and osmose through the capillary walls to the hand where there is a deep cut. A fierce battle ensues and white cor- puscles are seen following on all sidesl. White Corpuscle: Whew! Although Pm exhausted, I must try to rout these bacteria which are killing all my rela- tives. Oh! there goes my mother! If only enough anti-toxins would arrive to save me! Tetanus Bacteria: tnoticing white corpusclesy Ho! Ho! you canit eon- quer us! tAs bacteria are about to attack the white corpuscles, many more of the latter are seen approaching, osmosing through the capillary wally. White Corpuscle: tsighing with re- lief y At last the doctor has arrived with the anti-tetanus serum, and our lives shall not have to be sacrificed in this terrible warfare. I can now return leisurely to my capillary and enjoy my other task of absorbing fats. This, after all, is much more to my liking than lighting germs in the front line trench of this girlis body.

There is evidence that some of the most fundamental principles of algebra and the beginnings of a nota- tion have been discovered in Egypt as early as 3000 BC. It was nearly 2500 years later that geometry was formally organized, but during the next 300 years it was rapidly developed by Pythagoras, Plato, Euclid, Archimedes, and Apollonious. For many centuries after the Roman conquest of Greece, mathematical progress was confined al- most wholly to the Orient. During the time the Hindus were represented, Aryabhatta and Brahmagupta began the investigation of the theory of num- bers and made considerable progress in algebra, arithmetic, geometry, and trigonometry, hrst developing the pres- ent system of notation which is often wrongly attributed to the Arabs. IlThe sixteenth century witnessed the first important mathematical progress in Europe, the advance beginning in Italy. Shortly afterward there was also an awakening in France. Before the end of the sixteenth century through the labors 0f Descartes, Kepler, and Pascal the science of algebra and the elements of geometry had attained al- most perfection, the theory of numbers had been wonderfully developed and analytical geometry had appeared. About the same time Leibnitz and Newton simultaneously expounded the theory of calculation, thus vastly ex- tending the domain of mathematics and eventually revolutionizing all sciences. During modern times little addition has been made to the knowl- edge of the fundamental principles of mathematics, but they have been ap- plied in a multitude of new ways and forms? Mathematics is an important sub- ject on your daily program in Seth Low. If you apply yourself to it, per- haps later on you may be able to use your talents in further developing this Rhoda Kwait, RDI great science. vvvv MY MATH BOOK There it lay, my algebra book.

Today the methods are more widely known. One of the methods which they used was algebra. Besides this, various tricks were em- ployed. An interesting trick, done with the aid of multiplication, follows: Any two numbers can be multiplied quickly and mentally if the units of the THE SPECTATOR two numbers add to 10, and both tens are the same. The units are multiplied. One is added to either of the tens but not to both. They are now multiplied, the product is placed to the left of the other product, and you have the answer, i.e., 97x9329021. If when multiplied the units have 9 as their product a nought is put to its left, i.e., 91x99:9009- About 2,000 years ago the Chinese found the secret of the magic square, using numbers from one to nine. Many people are familiar with this trick, but fewer know it as it is performed with 2 5 squares. If all the sides add up to 65, and the center number is 13, and the numbers used are those from 1 through 2 5, can you work it out?

Page Forty-five What Algebra Is For 3,000 years men have been look- ing for a short way to write the ex- planations of arithmetic problems. The result of their search is called algebra. It is a systematic way of putting the steps taken to get the answers to prob- lems. It may be thought of as a sort of shorthand which makes problems easier. Algebra also shows us how to write arithmetic rules very briefly. We call these rules Formulas and find them very useful in learning about many things. We have formulas for interest, electricity, study of stars and a thou- sand other things. Algebra is on our program.

Crowds of people are standing about, some bargaining, others gossiping and most of them simply satisfying their idle curiosity. For it is not merely a shopping center, but also the gathering place where public announcements and political speeches are delivered to the citizens. THE I936 OLYMPICS The 1936 llOlympicsf which will be held in Germany, are going to do more to build up that lost feeling of friend- ship for Germany than any other fac- tor. Since control was assumed by a Chancellor, whose policy is being car- ried out by his people, the good will which existed towards that country un- til that time, has decreased rapidly. While the Olympics will not wholly re- store that feeling, it will be the first step in the right direction. Healthy sports, and fast, exciting competition, does a lot toward creating friendship between the competing athletes. All the people will have Ger- many filled with the spirit of comrade- ship. They will go home to their re- spective countries and spread this feel- ing. Germany needs that help to counter- act the past few years. The 1936 Olympics will help tremendously. Anne Kanner, RD4.

We farmers use fertilizer to make the soil rich and in return the earth is kind to us. My farm is in Arizona. We get our water for the fields from the irrigation canal in Salt River Valley. Others get it from the Coolidge Dam in the Gila River. I love the smell of the fresh turned earth. In the spring, after my daily work is done and the evening meal is finished, I love to sit on the porch. The budding trees and green grass smell so sweet. In the spring my chief crops are alfalfa and corn. In the fall I sow wheat. The great drought of last spring did much damage to our crops and fields. It turned rich farms into deserts. Mother N ature is almost always kind to us. She makes us work hard, but she rewards us for our toil by giving us a rich harvest. Dorothy Levin, 8A I THE LIFE STORY OF A SHEEP I was born on a grassy plain in Texas. I was a little dizzy at first but after a little rest I followed my mother who fed ravenously on the tall, green grass. After a while I, too, followed my mothers example. As I grew older, I Climbed from one mountain to another and dug my mouth into the small crevices to pull up a juicy blade of green. As you know, we are very sure-footed and I thought it great sport to climb up to the most inacces- sible peaks. We are very useful animals. We supply the world with meat, wool, leather, and milk. I have a few rela- tives living in Montana, California and Wyoming. Some of my foreign bro- thers live in the Soviet Republic, Aus- tralia, and Argentina. Well, this is all the story telling I can do for one day. I hear my mates calling me to have my wool sheared so I must say good- bye. Ruth Kornfeld, RB5 vvvv CORN Proudly the stalks of corn nod their heads in the late autumn breezes. Ah! doesn,t the golden color make you want to Close your eyes and sway your head to some beautiful music? Doesn't it seem a pity that these golden creatures will soon be gathered and ground into some food for us to eat? Soon all the farmers, who raise corn on their farms, will be busy gathering it. Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Indiana pro- duce more com than is raised in all the rest of the country. It is planted THE SPECTATOR Q0 200 in May, on the farms of the corn belt, and harvested in October and Novem- ber and as late as December. Corn is an old Saxon word meaning llgrain? It is our largest and most valuable crop and is grown on more than three-fourths of the farms in our country. Poor Mister Corn, he is planted, harvested, and then ground into the food we eat at almost every meal, every day. Florence Fodor, 8A8 Page Forty-nine' WE WGRK THE BIG SPECTATOR STAFF THE UNDER-COVERING OF ROOM 4I5 As one peers into Room 415, one meets an oche-like appearance: the ever clicking typewriters banging away the business messages; the two filing cabinets on the side of the room which one imagines contain unpaid bills, or- ders, and other important business items. Towards the rear of the room one sees a familiar office gate suggesting more closely the ofiice like appearance. As one approaches closer, one notices a well dressed man of average height, whose black hair is fast turning gray, and whose face is lit always by a wel- come smile. If one is fortunate enough to be a pupil of so fine a man, the lucky person is familiar with the never ending beating of a pointer upon the floor. The beating upon the Hoor re- minds one of Pewis tapping upon the cobble stones at the iiBenbow Inn? Yet this reminder disappears as one looks upon the smiling face of this fine man. The man who is none other than the familiar business and Har- monica band teacher, Mr. Berkowitz. Sylvia Brenselber, 9A6 Page Fifty AND PLAY WOODEN BIRTHDAY OF SETH LOW CELEBRATED On October 24, the 8th year pupils celebrated the fifth birthday of our be- loved school, Seth Low. Two very distinguished people were present, one of whom was our principal, Mr. Bilder- see, and the other Mr. Greenberg. As both men entered the auditorium, a song was sung to them entitled, icHow do you do, Mr ......................... , How do you do ?ii A very interesting program was pre- sented: F lag SaluteeStar Spangled Banner, Reading of BibleeHymn, En- tertainment by some pupils, SongeAre You Smiling, Seth Low Cheer. Our principal made a speech and likewise did Mr. Greenberg. Mr. Bildersee was given a de-liecious cake on top of which were hve candles. He was successful in blowing them out in one breath. That means good luck and every pupil is trying to make the next year better than the last. Annette Rubin, RB4 OUR CLUB PERIOD This term Seth Low has been given a club period. In this period an en- joyable time is had by all. Each pupil has been assigned to the club he Wished to join. Some of the various clubs are: The Operetta Club, Hollywood Club, Motion Picture Story Club, N a- ture Study Club, Music Lovers Club, and the Checker Club. This period is not to be spent in work but in play and enjoying yourself. All pupils look for- ward each week to the Club period. This new period teaches us the worthy use of leisure time. Geraldine Gersh, RC1 THE SPECTATOR THE SETH LOW STAMP CLUB The various clubs of Seth Low are mostly controlled by members who make a hobby of the club work. The Stamp Club is no exception. This club is one of the oldest of all Seth Low clubs, originated in F ebruary, 1930 by Mrs. Brill. The majority of the mem- bers have albums which include various countries. Others have albums which only have space for United States stamps. However, most of the mem- bers are interested in U. S. stamps any- way, so buying and trading consists mainly of these stamps. Our club consists of about forty members, of which one is a girl. The club meets every F riday, the iirst period. Mrs. Brill checks the attend- ance and then the president takes charge. Dues, which are not compul- sory, are collected. The secretary reads the last meetingls minutes and then the speeches begin. The president calls for volunteers who talk about the ori- gin, errors, and value of the stamps. Prizes are given by the judges. These are stamps which are well worth each speech. Every week three prizes are given. In case of a tie in the vote of the judges, duplicate prizes are given. Some meetings are honored with the presence of representatives of stamp companies and other clubs. These men or women give us pamphlets and sam- ples of their work. They tell us thrill- ing stories and take us on imaginary trips in the making of stamps. This term a former member who graduated Visited us and offered to us at very low prices stamps which have high catalogue prices. He is Leon Gross. F rom him Mrs. Brill often ob- tains the prizes which are given for the speeches. THE SPECTATOR Buying, trading and selling take up a large part of the time. Auctions are held and stamps are knocked down to the highest bidder. Usually the club comedian participates and the result is a howling, laughing and joyous crowd. To begin a new hobby, full of thrills, variety of color and education, join a Stamp Club. Stamp collecting is very economical and often a stamp which cost you three cents will return to you tenfold its value. Emanuel Finkelstein, 982, President SMALL SPECTATOR This term the Small Spectator Staff has been working under the supervi- sion of our faculty adviser, Mr. Roth- schild, and your Editor-in-Chief, Elaine Rubenstein. With their help, we have been able to issue the Small Spec- tator every other week. The members of the Staff have giv- en their time to the pupils of Seth Low in order to provide them with school news. The Spectator Staff extends its thanks to the pupils who have co-oper- ated with us, and especially to Mr. Rogers of the print shop. Page Fifty-one THE HOLLYWOOD CLUB The Hollywood Club, under the su- pervision of Mr. Martini, meets every Thursday afternoon at 2:30 oicloek. Our club officers are: Selma Morton, RDQ, President; Daisy Shor, RDI, Treasurer; and Juliet Meyer, RDI, Seretary. Our work is to write, act, and pro- duce a movie. We are working on a short story adapted from llThe Boy Penrodii by Booth Tarkington, which we have named liThe Children of the Table Round? The most important characters are Penrod, portrayed by Louis Polak, RC6; Mother by Harriet Peshes, 9A1 ; Daughter by Juliet Meyer, RDI. The story has not enabled us to give more children more important parts but it has been able to give everyone in our club a Chance to see himself on the screen. Some mention ought to be given to the following people for the work they have done: Bert Winnick, 9A4; Max Kahn, 9B7; and Morris Silverman, 9B7, who are the property men and have done some extensive work in elec- trical apparatus. Mae Steinberg, RD2, has written the scenario from the story. Maurice Danek, RDI, who has proved his ability as a scenarist, has also contributed. Our script girl, Page Fifty-two Daisy Shor, RDI, is kept busy at all our meetings. The Club wishes to have the picture finished before the end of the term and then you will all have a treat in store for you. Probably by the time this goes to press, some will have seen our work. In order to supply the proper back- ground for the scenes we have to go from place to place. So far we have used the Park, the Yard, the Dark Room, the Auditorium, the Domestic Science Room, and a Club membefs home to take our pictures. We have to be on the alert and ready always. Our motto: Lights! Action! Cam- era! Go! BOOK WORMS What do you think of the Book Worms? Many of you will no doubt wonder what and who the Book Worms are. It is a club organzed by the 7Bs. The oHicers of the Club are: President, Emanuel Berlin; Vice-President Ralph Pearlinger; Secretary, Esther Solomon. Every Wednesday the members of this Club gather in Room 405 and dis- cuss books of various authors. We have special privileges in the library. Esther Solomon, 7B3 OUR TRAFFIC SQUAD THE SPECTATOR HAPPIN ESS AHEAD You don,t know what you,re missing, folks, until you see what welve done here. The members of the Seventh Year Dancing Club enjoy themselves immensely. A whirl here and there on the dance floor twhich is the stage in the auditoriumi is pleasant, to the music played by one of the girls. Our instructor, Mrs. Fulton, is the joy of our club. Among the many dances, the Waltz is our favorite. Our object now is to learn how to dane the Continental Waltz. Our members hope to display their grace before you very soon. Pm sure anyone would be delighted to see us dance, for we dance with a merry heart. We certainly like our dancing club. Wouldnit you like to join it next term? Dorothy Goldberg, 7B2 OUR CHECKER CLUB The Checker Club meets in Room 431. The club is overcrowded with friendly people. In the club every- one is busy playing either checkers or chess. We elected our ohicers,, presi- dent and secretary. The players who score highest are to participate in the tournament games which are to be held in January. The champion of the tournament, at the end of the term, will be given a final try-out. The Chec- ker Club has put an advertisement in this edition of the SPECTATOR, and the secretary of the club, Virginia Harti- gan, is checking up on the members who have been generous. We are hav- ing a most enjoyable time and we look forward to our meeting every Friday. Louis Angri, RC I THE SPECTATOR DANCING CLUB SWINGS INTO ACTION ,. ,. ,,z 8?? KW The Dancing Club, organlzed by Miss Nelke, meets every Friday morn- ing in the Girls, Gym. At the first meeting, dancing was in full sway. November 19 was entertainment day. Two girls volunteered to dance, Rita Lohman and Anita Leder, both of Their specialty was tap- Class R02. ping. After that Miss Nelke taught the girls a country dance called lcPortland Fancy? In this dance the formation represents the spokes of a wheel. The llLadies Chain? one of the steps, seems the favorite of all, although some girls think the last step great fun, when everyone skips to her new part- ner. All the girls enjoyed this dance so much that they are hoping Miss Nelke will teach them more country dances. Rae Sehnitzer, RC2 SCOUT SANITARY SQUAD The scouts have continued their good work on the Scout Sanitary Squad. They police the school for paper in order to uphold the llKeep School Cleanii policy. This is under the supervision of Mr. Silverman. Coa operation of the students is a necessity and is urged by the squad. All scouts in this school should join this squad as one of their duties in scouting. Page Fifty-three REPORTS ON THE TYPING CLUB Friday morning starts a delightful day for the members of the Typing Club. The Typing Club enables the good typists to enjoy themselves whereas the poor students both enjoy and increase their typing ability. Through the su- pervision of Miss Blohm, we are there- fore able to have this golden oppor- tunity. Members of the Typing Club have elected the following officers: PresidenteGrace Di F iore Vice-Presidente-Nickolas Preggon SecretarytLillian Novin TreasurereHarold Sutton As one enters the room, which is 315, he will notice different interesting posters and pictures on typing that help a pupil with his work. While in the room we are allowed to do anything we want until the President calls the meeting to order. F ollowing that we have suggestions that will help or im- prove the club and then we have our contest. The winners of the contests were as follows: John Vicari, Beatrice Zuckerman, and Lillian Novin, twice. The Typing Committee Esther Matza Florence Marcus Grace Di Fiore Lillian Novin THE BIOLOGY CLUB Page Fifty-four TRAVEL CLUB The United States-the Hawaiian IslandseeJapan, China-India. These are some of the places we hope to Visit in future years, but now we must be content with traveling via Seth Low,s Travel Club. There, after mapping out an itine- rary, securing passports and visas, we crossed the U. S., stopping enroute at Yellowstone Park and Southern Cali- fornia. Then we crossed the Pacific to the land of the Cherry Blossom and Chrysanthemum, the Island Kingdom of the Mikado. F lowers are regarded in Japan with solemn and serious reve- rence. Girls are trained to grow and arrange flowers, as part of their neces- sary education. Christmas means noth- ing in Japan, but one distinguishing habit of the Japanese in relation to New Yearis Day is that of paying bills before dawn. Anyone who fails to pay his bills prior to New Years is consid- ered dishonored. Some of our own citizens might adopt this custom. Our supervisor, Miss Larkin, brought many examples of Japanese hand- work, a Japanese kimono, wooden shoes, and cotton stockings; also a Ja- panese doll and many other novelties. Virginia A. Naab, 9136 THE NEEDLECRAFT CLUB The Needlecraft Club, under the direction of Mrs. Aldrich, is getting along quite nicely. The girls are mak- ing all sorts of handiwork. Some are crocheting hats, scarfs, gloves, etc. Others are knitting sweaters. Some are making patchwork quilts. Some are making mats, embroidery, etc. Many of the girls have finished, and are starting something new. The club is conducted very nicely. Adele Brandes, RD2 THE SPECTATOR THE DEBATING CLUB This year the debating Club, under the able supervision of Miss Herzog, continued its work of teaching pupils of Seth Low the art of debate. At the first meeting, elections were held and the members elected to hold oche were: Mortimer RogoH, Presi- dent; Kenneth Friou, Vice-President; Alvin Friedfeld,, Secretary, and Rob- ert Coopchick, Treasurer. The first debate was on the topic, llResolved, that final examinations should be abolished? The teams con- sisted of Robert Chernoff, Louis Land- man, and Kenneth Friou for the af- firmative, and Arthur Doris, Bernice Wels, and Robert Coopchick for the negative. The decision of the judges was in favor of the aHirmative, this side winning by four points. After this debate, the club spent some of its time in learning the princi- ples of debating, and in the discussion and adoption of a constitution. The organization was then divided into four teams of six members each, for the purpose of continuing our de- bates. The three best speakers of the entire series are to take part in the annual gathering of the City History Club in Manhattan. As the work of the City-wide club extends over two terms, we expect to THE SPECTATOR welcome many new members from the present 9A into the club to help us win in our final contest next May. We are sure this Club will become one of the most popular. Mortmer Rogoff SETH LOW BOY SCOUT TROOP I79 During the past season we have ad- vanced greatly. Over the summer va- cation some of our scouts went to the summer troop and passed several first and second class tests. Many of our scouts took advantage of the offer to go to Oriental Beach. An enjoyable time was had by all. There are four patrols: Wolves un- Abe Ancona, and the Bob Whites un- der Joseph Marshall; Panthers under Meyer Elinsky; Flaming Arrows under der Philip Habib. All Patrol leaders are capable and worthy of their posi- The Wolf Patrol has regained the lead from the Panther Patrol. tion. Many hikes were taken by the troop One of the best hikes was a hike to Hollis Woods under Mr. Silvermanis supervision. If in all sorts of weather. you think Mr. Silverman was a wall flower on this hike, just ask him. THE NATURE CLUB Page Fifty-five M USIC LOVERS' CLU B TA- RA-TA- RA-! Who said girls eanlt play bugles? I, .a member of the Music Lovers, Club, would like to say that it is not so. I received my bugle five weeks ago, i and after struggling with it for quite a time, I linally got the knack of it. During the first two weeks of my class, I learned how to play the scale, which consists of four notes: do, me, sol, do. Most of the common songs and marches may be played easily, if you know your scale. When playing a bugle you donit blow into the mouthpiece, but spit, as if there were a piece of thread on the tip of your tongue. This produces a sharp, clear note. I brought the bugle to the Music Lovers Club to discuss the traits of the instrument with the other mem- bers. To our surprise, Mr. Phillips asked for it, and immediately gave us a few bugle calls. He said that a good bugler needs good lung power, and both he and the club were very much surprised when I told them that my instructor had said that girls are much better at learning to bugle than boys are.

They have added to their general knowledge and culture by a brief study of the geographical and histori- cal background of the types of weav- ing, such as Oriental rug weaving, ta- pestry weaving, Swedish weaving, lace making, etc. They,ve become acquainted with some of the masterpieces in the mu- seums. All evidence of native talent has been encouraged with very satisfy- ing results. This year the boys have tried their hands on every type of the work with great success. Besides the weaving 0f rugs," theyive worked out original de- signs in lace curtains and antimacas- sars. Theyive designed and produced beautiful pictures, footstools, and cush- ions in petite point. Every child has made articles and gifts for Christmas. The children in general have learned to make use of their leisure time eon- structively and beneficially. All this is evidenced by their requests for home- work in order to make wedding pres- ents, Christmas gifts and birthday presents. THE HARMONICA CLUB THE GERMAN HANDICRAFT CLUB 'IIE SPECTATOR As we peek into Room 417 on Fri- day morning, we see the pupils busily engaged in their work. At one end of the room the girls are occupied in em- broidering German proverbs on dish towels, silhouettes, pictures, etc., while the boys are employed in making air- planes, burning pictures on leather and wOod. Mrs. Gelber, our instructor, is always ready to help whenever'neces- sary. This club is open to students of Seth Low, both beginning and ad- vanced in German, and we urge you all to come and see us at work. Join our interesting and educational club next term. Shirley BrookoH, RD5, GERMAN CLUB The German Club of Seth Low Ju- nion High School is called liDas Deutsche Vereinf, It is under the su- pervision of Fraulein Weisbin. We try to speak as much German as pos- sible. We are doing quite well in that direction, as we are only beginners. In the form of entertainment we have skits, riddles, poems, proverbs, songs, and games. Our closing song at the end of the period is ilAuf Wiedera sehn? We will visit a German movie at the end of this term. If the Ger- man Club exists again next term, I will by all means belong to it again. Sylvia Balter, President Page Fifty-seven SHOP NOTES In Hie Home Mechanic Shop Let,s look into the Home Mechanic Shop and see what the boys are doing. In one corner of the room we see Mr. Stark helping a boy make a mitre box. Here two boys are wiring a bell. In a different part, some boys are fixing locks and plugs. Here are a few boys learning to put cross partitions in a drawer. We learn how to put hinges on a door, and many other various things that could be useful in the home. Sidney Rosenwasser, RB 5 Ye Olde Prin'l'ery Are we busy? 1,11 say so. We just finished printing a six-page Spectator. The circulation is 3,000. So you see it took 9,000 impressions to print it. Have you seen the nice programs, throw-aways and tickets Archie Packer, Roy Lovitss and John Andrick printed for the glMadam PupiPl play- We re- ceived several compliments. Mr. Rogers recommended Alphonse Siea and Roy Gottlieb, who are gradu- ating, for entrance to the New York School of Printing. We hope they be-' come master craftsmen. Other boys doing very good work are: Eli Syetta, Eli Zagha, Joseph Markel, Peter Vuona, Louis Skloot, Alphonse Siea and John Andriek. With +he Woodworkers Bang! Bang! Take positions in the aisle! Thus, we are greeted in the woodworking shop. In one corner there is a paint jar, and in another the shellac, and about each is a group of boys, eager to get their work finished. Around the walls are Checkerboards, peg games, shoe shine boxes, ash stands, shooting games and many other Page Fifty-ez'ght useful and recreational articles.

THE SCULPTURE CLUB THE SPECTATOR SPQRT REVIEW GP 934 SPORTS TALK CLU B The Seth Low Basketball team com- pleted probably its most thrilling sea- son with fair success. The division in which Seth Low participates is com- posed of five teams and so close was the battle for supremacy, that at the conclusion of the season, Seth Low, Pershing, and Montauk were tied for the premier honors, necessitating a play-off. The Seth Low five defeated Pershing in these games but lost the championship to Montauk. Seth Low opened its season with a victory over the team that was later to win the championship from it. Mon- tauk was an overwhelmnig favorite but was upset by the score of 12-1 1. The green and grey team was trailing at the half but defeated the red and white quintet with a spurt in the closing minutes of play.

It was defeated by every team on its schedule. The reason must have either been the lack of material or the other teams are stronger. Track The track team had a very good season by winning the Brooklyn cham- pionship and by coming out fourth in the City meet. Handball The handball team made out much better than the baseball team. They have won every game against Boody and Shallow. Basketball The basketball team had a fair sea- son compared to last year. This years team has a record of a win and a tie over Shallow, an overwhelming victory over Boody, a loss and a win with Montauk and a win and loss with Pershing. Swimming Last years swimming team was much better than this years. This year's team had an overwhelming vic- tory over Montauk but a loss to Lew Wallace. Aaron Beckerman, 9A4 THE TRACK TEAM Page Fifty-nine THE BASKETBALL TEAM The second game against a suppos- edly poor Shallow five proved to be the most exciting game of the season. At the end of the hrst half, Seth Low enjoyed a lead of 17 points to 9, and it seemed as though the Seth Low quin- tet was headed for an easy Victory. However during the intermission some- thing happened to the Shallow team, for they literally swept the Seth Low team OH their feet with a remarkable rally. So remarkable was their spurt GYM! GYM! Scores of girls out on the floor, Thafs what I saw when I opened the door. A11 looking so trim in their suits of green, Such a hne sight, I had never seen. Some darting here, some darting there, Like hoptoads bobbing up everywhere. Climbing, jumping, catching fast balls. Some doing stunts, and ending in sprawls. All too soon came the sound of the gong, A momentIs silence and off seampered the throng. Before very long they were on their way, cIGym,, was over for another day. Anita Leder, R02 Page Sixty that with tirrie left for one play the score read ,Seth 'Low 24,, Shallow 24. As the whistle was about to be blown a foul was calledaon Seth Low and Shneider Walked to the foul line to Inakethe deciding shot. The ball left his hands and hit the backboard. It rolled twice around the rim of the bas- ket in what seemed an eternity of min- utes, then as the whistle blew conclud- ing the game, it dropped to the .ground. The game thus ended in a tie and was replayed at a later date. In its third conflict Seth Low tasted its first defeat of the season. A fine Pershing quintet overcome a 10-6 lead which Seth Low held at the half and in a close, thrilling battle defeated the green and gray by the score of 13-12.

Keep your feet out in the aisle dur- ing a test. This will prevent the teach- er from going to the back of the room to see what you are doing. Be unprepared if you,re called on, then you wonit have to recite. Never throw papers in the waste- basket. This saves the expense of hiring people to empty them. . Keep up a constant murmur dur- ing the period. This confuses the teach- er and she,ll forget the homeworka- maybe. Try to get as many detentions as possible. Itis seldom that you can get something for nothing. Carmen Rodriguez ee 96 ee tiTopsyji said the mistress to the maid, iijust look at this table.
