Since school is being left behind forever by some of us who will not continue our education, it may be well to look back once more on the twelve years that we have spent preparing ourselves for the world. If these years have been unprofitable, the rea- son lies within our own character. It is the con- ventional attitude to sneer at the modern educa- tional system and its training of future citizens. But a discerning person sees that the contempt should be directed toward the scoffers and not the school. While it may not approach perfection, the present system allows individual initiative to function and thus permits the development of per- sons capable of developing. Even a Plato or an Aristotle' could not make outstanding citizens of a class of duncesg yet even a mediocre teacher can aid in the developing of a race of brilliantly intelligent beings. Fortunately or otherwise, we are neither dunces nor geniuses. We have attained a golden mean, and our educational system has adapted itself to our standards. When a sup- posedly brilliant student chafes because he con- siders himself held back by the slowness of his companions, he should be reminded that education is intended to maintain the average and elevate the mediocre. If he is really outstanding, he can find in the existing system the stimulus for per- sonal work outside of school that will prove his claim to exceptional qualities. If we have found these years unpleasant, we have no person to blame but ourselves. Whether we are serious students, athletes, or aspiring social lions-all of us certainly belong to one of these classifications-we shall never again find such an opportunity to develop our ambitions as in school. From now on, other displeasing elements in life will interrupt our activities in one particular line. We shall never again live in a condition where the student may concentrate on his work, if he so desires, from the time he rises until he retires, where the athlete may exhibit his prowess to a more admiring and at the same time friendly group, where the social light may live in such close contact with hundreds of varying personali- ties. To the person who has not derived real bene- fit from his school life and the condition of living that it permits, the future can promise little. But to the person who has taken advantage of his opportunities, the world will offer further chances of advancement. I THE CLASS OF 1934 Nearly three years ago, the Class of 1934 en- tered Steele. We felt strange in our new surround- ings, but finally adjusted ourselves to our environ- We have learned to know our teachers, by their skilful guidance and friendly ad- made our studies both interesting and in- ment. who, vice, structive. The courses opened to us have given us the opportunity of becoming acquainted with the divergent interests of life. We have had the privilege of electing subjects suitable to our indi- vidual aptitudes and desires. Now we are looking forward to a practical way of fulfilling our ambi- tions. Like other graduating classes of Steele, we have felt the same comradeship, the same loyalty, the same hopes and the same joys. No matter how much we objected to our lessons and assignments, we have always felt a desire to progress and to de- velop ourselves for the service of others and for STEELE SPOTLIGHT 9 the appreciation of worthwhile things. Our class work and participation in the extra-curricular ac- tivities have developed our personal characteris- tics. We have gained an increased capacity for continued effort in study and work and a fine sense of personal integrity and honest perform- ance in doing it. Our increased research and individual work out of school have made us more capable of fitting into the world of today. As the world has room only for those who are ever striving toward higher goals, so must we choose our course and move swiftly on to the work of service, for which our life at Steele has pre- pared us. -Rufus Lisle, President of the Class of '34. I FACE FORWARD Face forward! It is a simple phrase, but it holds a world of meaning. It can be applied to life itself, to every attempt to accomplish some- thing. For centuries men have been turning their faces forward, not only to seek new things, but to meet new conditions that force themselves upon mankind. The lowly cave man turned his face forward, today we behold the results. Tomorrow, new gen- craiions will behold newer, greater results. One could make a long list of the known men and women who have contributed to our present state, but behind these people are innumerable others who have faced the front courageously and con- tributed their small part, unknowingly, to our world of today. Sometimes one comes upon some difficulty which makes him want to turn aside. Perhaps he can change his course just a little to the right or left, and get around that difficulty. Later, he can again face straight forward, but that slight veer- ing of the course leads to more acute veering, He cheats and shirks his duty more and more when difficult tasks arise. One day, he is called upon to do a thing which he cannot evade, it is then that he fails. It is then that he realizes the value of keeping his face squarely to the front, of doing his duty honestly and willingly. Perhaps he makes a :fright-about-face," and begins all over. That act calls for courage and will power, two hu- man forces that have sustained men for ages. In the life of a young person an event which de- mands a face forward position is that of graduating from high school. Every senior of 1934 is faced with a problem. That problem resolves itself into a few words: HWhat am I going to do?'l Many lave their courses mapped out. Some are going to college: others have already obtained jobs. Each one is responsible for his success or failure. Those wlzo, through necessity, are required to stay at home, or who have yet to find suitable work, must a so fa:e' the front if they hope to overcome their disadvantages. We all want the good things of life, we want to be able to recognize those good things when they come. Come on, everyone. Face forward! -Anna Johnson, '34, I THE UNCERTAIN FUTURE When the class of 1934 passes through the doors of Steele for the last time, it faces an uncer- tain future and is prepared to meet it. The trials of the future are anticipated more clearly now than ever before. The senior class of 1934 will not know so universally the troublous transition from school to everyday life. It is aware that hundreds of thousands are being gradu- ated this year into a world that cannot absorb half the number. But the seniors have the experi- ence of three previous graduating classes to draw upon, and consequently will be prepared for the emergency. So, many of them will not know the heartbreaks that characterized the graduating classes of the past few years. The heartbreaks will occur: the remedies will already be formulated. Modern educators needlessly doubt the effect this discouraging outlook will have upon graduat- lack of adequate the result of such ing seniors. They deplore the teaching facilities and question curtaiiment. The senior of 134 has been deprived of these things, but there is that although he has been no doubt to him deficient in the 'fhumanitiesjl he has learned a great deal of hu- manity. The idealistic bubbles have burst into terse realities, the star is not being leaped at, but the wagon and the senior wait for a more propi- tious time to grab the star. In the interval, a more self-searching discipline will prepare the sen- ior for the opportunity when it comes. The senior of 1934 knows what confronts him after graduation and is prepared to meet it. He works toward an uncertain goal, but with the idea that turbulent changes can be overcome by unre- lenting work and that an uncertain future can be conquered. -Milton Graham, '34.

W sv "fl e ay 0 Class Poem RETREAT No more our footsteps through these halls resound, No more our voices will united be, Henceforth we pick our fruits alone For, now, we gain our longed-for liberty. The word is spoken-how it rends our lives Asunder, no longer shall we be as one, But each a separate unit to be tried, Each with a separate problem to be done, As down this aisle we make our sad retreat, And into fog we slowly feel our way, Our groping fingers may the object clasp, Or skim unnoticed o'er the surface, gay! Oh, let our eyes be guided by the Light That shone before us through the darkened way, And not be beckoned by some unknown star That flickers coyly from across the bayg The door has shut, but in the chilly hall Our hearts may yet the glowing ember bear, Of Truth, and Love, and Loyalty, We meekly ask that it be so-in prayer. -Erma Gillam, '34. 3 452 2 'G f Q 4G iiwrdididiwhibiiiiwiidiii STEELE SPOTLIGHT f RALPH ABLON MARGARET ALTIC ROBERT ABSHIRE ROBERT ANDERSON WINIFRED ADAMS MARTHA APPLE FRED ALEXANDER CHARLES ARNOLD HERBERT ALLEN MARJORIE ASHWORTH DOROTHY ALSTON RUTH ASZLING STEELE SPOTLIGHT JOHN BAC ON PATRICIA BLANK ROBERT BACON ROBERT BILLMAN ELAINE BADER GORDON BOLDT REBA BADER EVELYN BONHAUS BEN BALSHONE MARY ALICE BORCHERS DOROTHEA BECKER MORRIS BOTWIN STEELE SPOTLIGHT GEORGE BOUDOURIS ELIZABETH CAMPBELL ANNA BRANER VIRGINIA CHAFFEE DORIS BRENNER RAY CHAMBERLAIN SJ JAY BRESLER ED IN CHARLES H VIRGINIA BRIEN MARION CHARLESWORTH r ' x DO BROSJZN " ELIZABETH CHATTERTON LU 5' 9 ,QD " .Y A 5, X4 ff" ' ,Q V STEELE SPOTLIGHT HELEN CHILES CHARLES COOK PERSIS CHRISMAN MARTHA COSNER ALICE CLEMMER JEANNE COTTER RUTH CLEMMER ROBERT COTTERMAN RICHARD COLE MARY ALICE CREA-GER JACK COMMON FREDERIC CRIST STEELE SPOTLIGHT PAUL CROMER DOROTHY DARROW LUCILE CRUTCHER MILDRED DAVIS HAROLD CRUZAN JACK DAVIS JACK DAMUTH ANTOINETTE DE ALOIA FLORA DANIEL DOROTHY DEAN CONCETTA DAPICE KENNETH DE MOSS -r STEELE SPOTLIGHT ROBERT DEN NING CHARLES DONOFF RUBY DENNIS ELECTRO EBY WILLIS DICK RUSSELL ELLIS CHESTER MAE DICKEY DOROTHY ELLISON BARBARA DITMER ADELE ELLMAN AILEEN DITMER CAROLYN ENGLERTH STEELE SPOTLIGHT 17 CLAIRE ENSCOE THEODORE FISCHER HENRY FAIGLE BETTY FLICK RAY FARRINGTON RUTH FLOOK MARY FENDER DON FOREMAN ANNA FINLEY ROBERT FORSBERG ROBERT FISCHER MARTHA FOSLER STEELE SPOTLIGHT BETTY FREISE NATHANIEL GATLIN RUTH FRIEDMAN PAULINE GEBERT 6406412 1 'F 1 F , V!! f ' ' 1 K FLORENCE GERSTNER 1 ' f I N J Y W K , v , 'YJ 1 HELEN GARDES ERMA GILLAM WILLIAM GARDINER JOHN GIMPERLING JOAN GAST LOUIS GOEBEL STEELE SPOTLIGHT ,wffw ' J' vtlx-Z ,y,a'A ROBERT GOLDMAN HENRY GRUBER EVERT GORNALL FRED HAGEMAN MILTON GRAHAM MARY LOU HALLAM MARJORIE GRASSE NORMAN HALLER DOROTHY GROBAN RUTH HANSBARGER COURTNEY GROVER MARY HARRINGTON STEELE SPOTLIGHT JERRY HARRISON FRED HOBBS JAYNE HAVERSTICK ROBERT HOHN JOHN HAYES KATHLEEN HOLLAND HEGIQER MELVA HOLTZMAN LOIS HESS CATHERINE HOSTETTER RICHARD HIMES STELLA HOWARD STEELE SPOTLIGHT FRED JACHE GERALDINE KASCH HARRY JACOBS JOHN KAUFFMAN ANNA JOHNSON KATHLEEN KERBY ALYCE JOHNSON E R EDWARD JOHNSON MARGUERITE KEVE ROY KANTNER FRED KINZIG STEELE SPOTLIGHT LUCY ROSE KISER VINCENT KUSAG KENNETH KLINE DOROTHY LANDSIEDEL I BETTY KLIN-G ROBER Jl1ANG RICHARD KORNS RUTH A.

PORTRAIT OF A MAN TALKING TO HIMSELF By Charles Cook Just have time to scribble off a few notes on my trip back to the old home town, Dayton, Ohio. What sights! How the old place has changed! Just listen. I drove by the old fire house just as Fire Chief Ryan swerved out with the big hook and ladder. And there was Jack Stahl ring- ing the bell for all his might. Also saw Bob An- derson and George Boudouris hanging on, too. While I was waiting for the truck to pass, I looked up and saw a huge crowd where my old Alma Mater used to stand! Of course, I stopped and went over to see what it was all about. I found they were dedicating a new Steele High, the old one collapsed in action a year ago. On the speak- er's platform I saw the Hon. Principal Gruber with his colleague, Gimperling, both of whom had fin- ished their dedication speeches. Seated on the platform were some of my old classmates. Ruby Dennis had taken Miss Bucher's place and is doing very well, they tell me. Jane McConnaughey is dean, with Marjorie Grasse assisting her and also teach- ing stenography. Samuel Stebbelton had taken Mr. Boldt's place, and Electro Eby is the new horticultural instructor. The benediction was pro- nounced by Reverend Edwin Charlesworth of the DeMoss St. Baptist Church. I saw some others in the crowd that I once knew: Jeannette Moore, Seorge Pohlman, Jeannette Messick, Juanita Myers, Howard Manhardt, Melva Holzman, and Hazel Tankersley. On leaving the building I fell in step with my former pals, Jack Damuth and Joe Kerr. They told me that Haverstick and Mayer Decor- ating Establishment had just furnished the beau- tiful new office which they now occupied in the Monroe building. And they had just heard that the Patterson and Patterson CDavid and JoeJ Pea- nut Patty Co., is now the largest nut house in this part of the country. Among those employed there as nut assorters are Peggy Young, Mary Alice Creager, Dorothy Dean, Marie Neukom, and Martha Ply- mate. My two pals left me at the old Traut hang- out, now in the hands of Smith 81 Smith. Bill Min- ton jerked up a "Rich" soda for me, and Pauline Weaver brought it over. From the doorway I saw a new Gaylord convertible coupe fonly 2E10,000J being driven madly by Doc Grover. I rushed out of Traut's and caught him at the red light at Second Street. I was surprised that he recognized me, but 38 STEELE SPOTLIGHT I asked him where he was going. He said he was in a hurry to get back to his office where his blond secretaries, Pauline Gebert and Jessie Rout- zohn Qnot a bad choice for a bachelorlj were hav- ing a hard time pacifying his patients. He let me off at the Fidelity Building. I was immediately attracted by a strong voice across the street and crossed over to see what it was all about. Here were Bill Thompson and Thomas Courtney sell- ing "Donoff's Iron Tonic"-to build up those mus- cles-to one of their victims, Jerome Pope. Glanc- ing at my Gardiner watch, I realized I had only enough time to catch the 'fCommonU Limited for New York. O SPORTS SHORTS Edited by Bob Fischer Coach Arthur Valpey, newly appointed head of Har-Yale Athletic Department, announces his new assistant coach will be Ansel Upton . . . It has been rumored that Don Foreman will secure the coach- ing position at Southeastern University recently vacated by Dick Himes ....

A PIPE AND A DREAM i'Gimme a pipe,'l snarled the man, evidently a beach-comber from his dirty, unshaven, bleary- eyed face and ill-kept hair to his loose, cracked and dusty shoes. '4You have monee?" the Chinaman inquired sus- piciously. "Yeah! Look, a fiverlw responded the man, as he plunged his hands deep into his pockets and drew forth a solitary, filthy bill. When the opium pipe had been prepared, the man flopped into a bunk and eagerly began to puff, puff, puff . Stumbling through the steaming hot jungle, a white man with a huge, bulging pack on his back came into view of a watcher in the trees above the trail. This trail was narrow and faint, and often the white man lost it as he reeled from side to side. A grin of greed came over the watcher's face, for directly below him was a pit, a trap big enough to hold an anaconda, and the watcher knew what was in the pack. It had all been very simple, The watcher had learned that the white man was bring- ing in his gold. The pit and a good rifle would do the rest. But wait! The white man was in the pit! Yes, caught in the pit! Now to use the rifle! Aiming almost straight down at the strug- gling, yelling figure in the trap, the watcher pulled the trigger. The gold was his now. He allowed it to run through his grasping fingers once more before start- ing on the long journey back to the river landing. No wonder that white man had stumbled and reeled-the pack was heavy, heavier than the watcher had calculated on. But he could not leave behind any gold. Because of this he did not make the landing that night. He built a fire in a small clearing, and stayed up all night to watch the gold. He would make the landing today, the watcher thought, as he started off on the trail. The pack was still heavy, and he needed sleep badly. He was glad when he sighted the landing, so glad and so tired that he did not notice the curiously poised tree that leaned over the trail. Anyone alert could have seen that it was a native affair set to catch deer. As he stumbled eagerly toward the river, he tripped the trigger and was immediately pinned be- neath the log. Helplessly he lay there, his leg was broken. He shot almost all of his ammunition, but there was no one on the river to hear. The tiny, ever-working insects of the jungle began to annoy him more fiercely. Piums and Motuca flies which would leave bad sores were the worst. Many hours passed, each more terrible than the other. Then he heard the boat's whistle as it rounded the bend of the river and slowed down for the landing. The watcher knew that it would wait for him a while. He pointed his rifle into the air and fired his last shots. As the watcher eased himself to a better position to watch the trail, he saw slithering through the dark undergrowth of the jungle a jararaca, one of the deadliest snakes in all Brazil. Shouts and the clattering of a gang-plank preceded a party of inquiring boatmen. The snake paused, reared up its head, and immediately sighted the trapped watcher. be bl -if HHey! dis pipe ainlt no good." The man dropped the pipe on the bunk, and went out onto the street, his hands plunged deep in his empty pockets. -Fred Coleman, '3,,z. 40 STEELE SPOTLIGHT PUFF-PUFF ! My advice to those who are inclined to be weak is to take a Unicel' hike one cool summer day when the temperature is around 80 degrees in the shade. For best effects one should carry at least a heavy wool sweater, one beret, a canteen of cold water, and of course, food. fNever fear that the water will be too cold, for after ten minutes of hiking it will be warm as toast.J Warning: Be sure to wear a comfortable pair of walking or hiking shoes. Personally, I prefer walking shoes, for hiking shoes are just too heavy to Ulugl' with you. After collecting all your belongings and meet- ing your friends at a designated place, the object of your morning's entertainment Qfor morning is the best time to hikej should be carefully se- lected. There are two places to go: either a straight road hike, taking in the surrounding coun- try, or, if you feel quite brave, a mountain Qthat is, provided you are in a mountainous region, and let us suppose you arej. Naturally, if a mountain is available, one will choose it. So after much squab- bling as to who will carry the packs, canteens, first- aid kit, you are off down the road hiking to the base of the mountain. After five miles or so of road-walking, you come to the "beginning of the end." Before starting the climb, you must always take a good rest. Advice: Take only one look at destination for discouragement comes quite eas- ily when ascending. The top looks miles off, and you think youill never get there. More advice: That thought comes to you a half dozen times be- fore finally reaching the look-out house, so don't become discouraged now. The climb-oh, it's awful! After hiking five miles on a dirt road with shoes filled with gravel, youlre not so fresh as when you be- gin ascending. But donlt give up hope-there are rest periods every ten minutes: and later on when you begin the real climb, rest periods are more frequent. Note: Take your time, don't rush between rest periods and then pant out your supposed rest, drink little water-you are having a hard enough time without carrying more water with you. After an hour and a half have elapsed and youlre about to give out, don't fail to ask the guide how far it is to the top. He is most likely to say, "Just a few minutes moref' and really that cheers you up. If that wonlt do it, just say to yourself, 'lWhat a wonderful view at the top, and I'm sure of a rewardfl After much grunting, struggling, panting, and pushing, your efforts are rewarded, for there looming before you is nothing but sky-of course, that means the top! Oh! What a relief and br-r-r-r-r-r, how cold! Editorls note: See, I told you you'd need a sweater, for the wind does blow on the top of a mountain. Yould think you would be tired after all that climbing, wouldn't you? But no, the view is so gorgeous that you just have to stand and gaze. To us f'Westerners,l' the clear valley below dotted with lakes, hills, houses, and hamlets, is a magnifi- cent sight. I know Illl never forget the thrills received after climbing my first mountain. The view is indescribable! One can see to the west the sun streaming down the valleys below and striking the distant mountains. To the east per- haps, if you are lucky, you can see the rain pour- ing on a hazy notch in the mountains. It is a sight that the eye alone can visualize. May every- one, some time in his life, enjoy the true beauty in nature in that manner, as I have! Truly this terrible tale of mountain climbing might sound odd to one who has never indulged in this vigor- ous pastime, but I assure you that climbing high into heights unknown gives one a feeling, uplifting to mind and body. -Virginia Brien, '3,1.

ON GARBAGE Of the two or three attributes a word must possess in order to be generally termed beautiful, euphony, to my mind, is the most important. Without this quality, there can be no beauty. For a word to express mere loveliness of meaning is not enough. Indeed, I place such a high value on euphony that I totally disregard the meaning! It is thus that I deem a word beautiful which may be odious to many. That word is garbage. When the common layman hears the word gar- bage, he immediately thinks of coffee grounds and broken egg shells. It is not so with me. I hear only the exquisite blending of vowel and consonant sounds. just as it is impossible for some of us to see the beauty in a great painting, it is even more impossible for many to detect the loveliness of the word garbage. One must possess a certain aesthetic sense to appreciate this word. This ap- preciation cannot be acquired, it must be inherent. As the Literary Digest has now had for many years a mania for conducting polls of any and every kind, it was only natural that they should have one on the selection of the most beautiful words in the English language. I regret to state not one vote was cast for garbage. If the voters could have just heard a mellow-voiced radio an- nouncer or a Walter Hampden say "garbage," it would have been certain victory for that word. Perhaps with the induction of the NRA, which means greater leisure for the voting public, will come a new and greater appreciation of the aesthetic. Then and only then will that glorious word "garbage" receive its just recognition. Let us hope that time is not far distant. -Jay Bresler, '3,z. THE RIVER ROAD The dusty old country road followed the course of the river, or as near it as it could. Like most rivers, this one seemed to be unable to go along without turning, no matter how hard it tried. The road, being a little shiftless, just followed along beside it. For almost five miles the road was shel- tered and cooled by trees. However, at intervals, the hot july sun shone through the leaves, splash- ing the dark road with patches of bright yellow. The trees were mostly on the far side of the road. This gave the passerby a clear view of the river. In the center of the stream the water was hot looking, limpid, and slow moving, but near the banks, beneath the overhanging trees, the cool water looked dark and mysterious. Small flying things scurried over it, causing tiny ripples. Per- haps there were fish in those dark depths, but the road was oblivious to all that. It just wandered on and on, now turning, now twisting, passing cozy summer-houses, homey farmhouses, peaceful fields, an old neglected covered bridge, contented cattle, and boys swimming and fishing. It seemed at peace with all the world in general. -Kenneth De Moss, '3 7. Even the dog required much attention 42 STEELE SPOTLIGHT OVER THE FOOTLIGHTS Over the footlights! Over the footlightsl What does this mean? Is it the thrill of an actor as he portrays his role and gazes over the brilliance of footlights to his audience? Is it the footlights which inspire him to greater dramatic roles? Is it the audience who gaze awe-stricken and awe-inspired at the actor who places them in another life? These are the reflections of the masses. Few people realize the importance of the work backstage with its trials, thrills, and worries. In the past two years, I have experienced the pleas- ures of the backstage details as a member of vari- ous property committees. In the preparation for the recent Senior Play, each member of the committee was allotted vari- ous items. On my list was a large gilt frame. This made necessary the removal of a picture of a lovely woodland scene from over the piano in the living room. A younger sister was finally per- suaded to part with one of her treasured scrap- books on the promise that my name be written in it to insure its safe return. This resulted in much ridicule from members of the cast and stage crew and some surprise that a Steele Senior could color the pictures so wonderfully. Next were a dog and a cat. It was possible to find a dog but not a cat. Without consulting the author, certain liberties were taken and lines changed that the cat might not enter into the play. A piece of toast and a grapefruit were required on the hero's break- fast tray. Therefore, before each performance, bread was toasted and grapefruit cut. This mi- raculously disappeared after each rehearsal. An- other tray called for a pitcher of ice water. So each night a tray of ice cubes was wrapped in newspapers and emptied into a pitcher at the end of the first act. The ice water seemed so tempt- ing to members of the cast and crew that it was difficult to keep water in the pitcher. In fact, during the final performance, the ice water was so popular that when the time came for its stage appearance, there was no water in the pitcher, and the pitcher merely full of ice cubes was taken onto the stage. On the desk were required a few author's manuscripts and blank paper which the leading man might tear up during his stub- born spells. Naturally, all the paper placed on the desk was torn up the first rehearsal. There- fore, small allotments were carefully doled out on each occasion. After assembling these and other articles, the work was not over: for the property committee must be certain that each actor had the necessary personal properties before each entrance. For example, one character needed a pocket mirror in the first act and a pen in the third, another, a penknife in the first and five American flags in the third. and frequently had to be carried from one side of the stage to the other that he might be at the proper entrance and appear only when the cast was expecting him. We are prone to give the glory to the actors whom we see and hear, but the pleasure of help- ing to make their show a success goes to those backstage. At least we can reflect in wonder at the many famous actors of the stage and Opera who spent years at just such work. -Elizabeth Moffat, '34. WIND AND WAVE Have you ever stood on a cliff overlooking a wide expanse of water? Perhaps the evening is windy, and the waves came tumbling over each other, breaking on the cliff. The spray may reach your face, but you don't mind, because you like to feel its fine mist across your face. Far out at sea a light flashes across the sky from a lighthouse, warning sailors to beware of treach- erous rocks. To the left toward another shore are some camps on a high cliff. From these come the cheery lights of home and a warm fireside. You picture the inmates of these cottages sitting around the fire talking, or perhaps spending the evening playing games. To the left, about a hundred feet from the cliff on which you stand, are some sea- gulls barely visible V in the twilight. They are perched precariously on a sharp rock with the spray playing about them. All is quiet, save the whist- ling wind and the tossing waves. What a grand feeling it is to be alone in this place! What a fine opportunity to let your thoughts wander freely. But all good things must have their ending. It's getting late, and you have to leave this peaceful spot. Your nerves are quiet and your thoughts tranquil. Perhaps you think you'll come again. But who knows, you may not be in the mood to enjoy such a scene very soon. -Martha Plymate, ,34. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 43 THE LURE OF THE ANTIQUE For some people, antiques have no fascination: they canit see any beauty or romance in a piece of old furniture. "Why,l' they ask, "do you see any beauty in an old-fashioned table or chair, in- stead of a piece which is the most modern thing in design?'l I used to be one of those people, and I think my experience with antiques is very inter- esting. There is a little village not far from Dayton which is noted for its antique shops. It was to this little town that my mother wished to go some day. I was not at all impressed with the idea, but I knew that my mother was interested in antiques, so I told her that any time she decided to go, I would take her. In the meantime, she had heard of a place that was not often visited by lovers of antiques, and she said that that would be the place to go. It was about four o'clock when we arrived at the shop, and when we stepped inside, an elderly man came up and asked if he could help us. My mother said that she would like to see what he had for sale, and soon they were busy talking about old pieces of furniture they had seen. After a while the old gentleman looked at my mother and me and said, ffDo you want to see some real antiques?" Antiques were antiques to me, so I followed them out to the barn and up a flight of rickety steps to the room in which he kept all of his most prized possessions. The sight that met my eyes was anything but beautiful. All of the pieces were dusty and dirty, and some of them were even broken. I stood amazed, and I didn't know what to say, for my mother and the gentle- man were busy talking and examining the pieces that looked to me not worth one dollar. Soon my mother called me and said, "Isnlt this a beauty?l' Still dazed, I said, "Yes, what is it?" It wasn't a table, nor a chest of drawers, but rather a com- bination of the two. When she said that it would make a lovely dressing table for my room, and that she would like to buy it, I could not quite see that dusty and unfinished thing without any knobs on one drawer in my room. After we arrived home, I took it to a man who repairs old pieces of furniture and told him to finish it up. He told me that I had a beautiful piece of furniture, but I still was not reconciled to the thing. About two weeks later, when I came home in the afternoon, my mother called me upstairs. The dressing table was the farthest thing from my mind. I walked into my room, and never was so surprised, There was the dusty and dirty table in my room, but it was not dusty nor dirty, in- stead it was beautifully polished and a lovely thing to see. I have had that table over a year, and only re- cently did I notice that one of the knobs is still missing. It has been admired many times, and that knob has never detracted from its beauty. I am more proud of it than of almost anything else I own, and as I look at it now, I realize the fascination antiques hold for people, in other words, "the lure of the antiquef' -Virginia Van Dyke, ,34. CASUALTY Who was that under the pile of books and lit- tered papers, beside the overturned chair? Who was that covered with ink from the bottle in the corner? Who was that sprawling fellow with the frightened face? It was only I, experiencing a major catastrophe of my life. A stack of toppling books at the back of the table had ceased to top- ple, but the consequences had quite upset me. When the books began to fall, I was absorbed in a theme on winter and snow, etc. I was so startled when they struck the table, knocking several school books and a pile of papers to the floor, I thought an avalanche of the very snow I was writ- ing about had swept over me. Shoving my chair backwards violently, but dragging the table, too, I landed in a heap among the papers and books upon the floor, with a bottle of ink and a table in my lap. Then realizing that it was no ava- lanche, I arose, righted the table, and began to pick my books and papers from the floor, care- fully wiping the ink from them. The back of one chair was fractured, four sheets of paper smeared with ink, three books blotted, one pair of trousers stained, and a wrist strained, were all the injury and damage sustained. A theme after all is only a theme, but when it starts an avalanche, what then? --Fred Hobbs, ,34. y 44 STEELE SPOTLIGHT ESPSEQBSPSPSBSESYBSPSXESPSPSPSPSPSB ' Uerse ' Biliflidiiiiiiididkdiiiidfdididiriidid THE STOIC In vain we try to separate the sweetg And clutching fingers fumble in the dark To strike the secretive, elusive spark That animates the dust beneath our feet.

The strong hands that had cared for them, That had helped the weak and tended the sick, Were no more the servants of her will. The mouth from which encouragement and love Once poured forth was silenced. Her ears, ever open to a soul in need, Now heard but inward thoughts.

This peculiar inquisitiveness is due most likely to the journalistic training that he received while working on the "Lionl'. I exhibited the pictures to my proud parents. They, of course, thought that the photographs were lovely, but I disregarded this comment be- cause I feared it might be biased. Then I took them out and showed them to exactly twenty-three thousand nine hundred and twenty-nine friends, fwell, two, anywayj, and failed to receive one favor- able comment. They said, 'fYour face looks too long," "It's a good photo, but it doesnlt resemble you," "Your jaw looks as if you've got a mouth- ful of tobacco," f'You look too seriousfl etc. After wearily trudging about for hours, I de- cided this would be a very poor story, until I ran into Ray Chamberlain, who saved this reporter from being a dismal failure. Rayls prize bit of comment came when he loudly exclaimed that my picture looked exactly like John Dillinger's. The prize photo was then swiftly passed around the civics class, and everyone agreed that I resembled J. D. Ahem, Seniors. I will gladly sign my autograph in your Spotlight for the lowly sum of two-bits. -Bob Fischer, '34, THE HERITAGE OF THE YOUNGEST 'fOh, to be the youngest child!" How often I feel that fate has plotted against me by choosing me for the oldest, the example. When my youngest brother came along, he seemed to be a nuisance and so, detrimental to my future happiness. Immediately the atten- tion of a proud mother and father was shifted to the youngest. He was king of the household and ruled effectively from his cradle. Right then and there my troubles began, and to my grief, I find that he still reigns supreme. Mother will say, f'Don, be home at nine olclockf' and in his most self-possessed tone he replies, f'I'll be home at nine-thirty." I should never dare, never think of answering in such a manner. It would be disgraceful, and I would be forced to realize it. Don, however, leaves mer- rily and usually fails to return even at the hour he himself set. Perhaps he is politely reminded of the fact, but chances are that the subject is evaded. I am continually reminded of the unhappy thought that I am the guiding star, and everything I do out of turn, Don will feel justified to do. The money I spend, the hours I keep, the grades I get, and my actions in general, must inspire him to nothing but the best. If there is a fight, it's invariably my fault. 'fThe baby" just couldn't have started anything so horrible, but ten chances to one it was his original idea. When I want something, it is never there. On the day I most want my tennis racket, Don has it and has left me one which needs restringing, or he has gone off to the park with my favorite base- ball glove. I can object, thatls true, but where does it get me? When there is work to be done in and around the house, Don is never there. He has so many important things to do, like most little boys, and consequently can't get home. The only time he is at all reluctant to work is at practicing time. At this fatal hour he seems fired with ambition, but even a near-sighted person can see that he is debating between the lesser of two evils, work or his music lesson. Since there's no help I am resigned to a fate of 'fgrin and bear it." But I repeat, t'Oh, to be the youngest!" -David Patterson, ,34.

This peculiarity has caused me much discomfort, in- cluding a recent sojourn at a local hospital. If you have never been confined in a hospital, you cannot appreciate the drabness of any hour spent within its walls-and the early morning hours are beyond any degree of your wildest imagination. After one week of radio calisthenics, top-of-the- morning programs, year-old radio jokes, conversa- tions with tired nurses, and the like, I grew des- perate, and from sheer boredom adopted a hobby of observing the various humors of my neighbor- ing patients when the nurses awoke them at the unseemly hour of six a.m. There were three rooms within hearing distance of me, and each contained a distinctly different type of person. The room opposite mine was oc- cupied by an elderly woman who happens to be quite a well-known figure in Oakwood society. After the pleasant mornings I had spent in her company in the sun room, I was interested in see- ing if she retained her affability under such strains as six o'clock awakenings. To my surprise and admiration she did. Her refinement was appar- ent even then, and she never failed to inquire as to everyones health and to wish pleasant good- mornings. I must admit that her disposition made me rather ashamed of myself, for she had been in bed much longer than I. However, if that lovely old lady's good humor shamed me, my own dubious temper went bouncing back to normal when the nurse entered the room at my right to awaken its young male inhabitant. I never actually saw this patient, but from my own imagination and the nurse's idle chatter I gathered that number 228 was young, handsome, convalescing rapidly and grumpily, and even more bored with hospital life than I was. This last feature created a bond of sympathy between us, and I looked forward to hearing his reactions to the early risings. It was rather as I expected. Groans, yawns, creaking of beds, a volley of words unfit for my delicate ears, and none too gentle commands for a cigarette sent me into gales of smothered laughter. The mirth ended, however, when a nurse entered room 229 where a small girl was confined with a fractured skull. The child was in actual agony and when awakened sobbed continuously for her mother who, of course, was not on the scene at six in the morning. To the relief of my nerves, the girl was moved several days after the inaugura- tion of my hobby, and a dialect-afflicted southern woman replaced her. Whether the sobbing or the dialect was harder to bear, I have never deter- mined. Somehow the story of my hobby became known, suspect through the chief bugle-caller, I rather the head nurse. The reactions were various and amusing-and, incidentally, rather in accordance opinion of their early morning disposi- with my tions. The elderly lady was kind enough to say that she thought my hobby amusing and ingen- iousg the southern woman, as I feared, was not over-pleased to hear that her dialect amused me, and the convalescent male quite frankly stated that he'd keep on crabbing and I could keep on laugh- ing as far as he was concerned. Ah, well-it was a nice hobby while it lasted, and now that it's over, I'll re-continue to listen to radio calisthenics, top-of-the-morning programs, and year old radio jokes until something else comes along.

The frag- rant scent of pine trees spiced with wood smoke gives a gentle, soothing caress few experience. Who does not love to lean against a fallen log or tree trunk and gaze, with dull, dreamy eyes, at the path of the smoke ascending from the warm em- bers of the fire? We ponder over the miniature castles it builds in the air, watching a breath of wind carry them from our sight forever. One can- not help but compare these smoke castles with his own castles in the air, which ofttimes disappear in a puff of smoke. The transparent column becomes blue haze and vanishes into the spacious expanse overhead. One bows in awe before the serene beauty of it all. The troubled, changeable, uncertain course of smoke is much like that of life and both end in that great beyond. -Wilmer Lewis, '34. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 49 HE GOT HIS DATES MIXED After what seemed to Don Morten an incredibly short nap, he suddenly awoke to find two fraternity brothers staring at him with the most curious ex- pressions. 'fWhatever is wrong with me? I wish yould tell me. Even if I am a mere freshman, I can take it, I hope." f'Well, Don,'l his room-mate began, Uwe hate to get you worried, because it may not be anything serious, but you may as well know about it now. You've been asleep here for two whole days, and nothing we've done seemed to faze you the least bit. Welve tried everything." With these not so reassuring remarks, his room-mate continued to look him over, but with apparent relief that Don was none the Worse for his lengthy slumbers. But Don wasn't so lightly impressed, for his memory had certainly not been impaired. It wasnlt but a few seconds until he realized exactly what the effect of the two-day relapse would be. "Good heavens! Our semester history exam was yesterday, and that professor is so tough he'll never believe the excuse I'll have to give him. Be- sides, by the time I do take it, I'll forget half of what I studied." With these discouraging thoughts, Don climbed out of bed. HOh, brace up,"-this from an interested sopho- more. UIt could be a lot worse. What if yould had a date? Then you really would have some ex- plaining to do." And with an awful groan, Don suddenly remembered that that was exactly the predicament he was in, in addition to missing the exam. In fact, he forgot all about the exam think- ing about how he would ever explain to Madge. He had promised to take her to the university dance, and she would certainly be angry when he tried to apologize for his conduct. UI'll simply have to call her, thoughj' he decided. So with that he rushed to the telephone, which for once was not in use. He went into the booth and dialed the number, preparing his speech in the meantime. Ah-3, the receiver was lifted at the other end of the line, and Don heard a feminine voice saying UHello.l' It was Madge. Thus the crisis came. HHello, Madge, this is Donfl Nothing in her voice seemed to indicate her anger when she answered him. NWell, Madge, Ilve just got to tell you how sorry I am about last night. I donlt know how I'll ever make it up to you for not taking you to the dance." He listened to see if she had hung up yet, but instead he heard her begin to laugh. Finally she said, t'Don, do you know what day this is? It's the day before the dance. Whatever is wrong with you? I think studying for that history exam has made you just a little crazy." Upon hearing her last few words, Don slowly began to see the light. He had really been asleep only an hour or so, the whole story was just a very convincing fake. So he explained to Madge all about it, while she suppressed a great desire to laugh at Don, who, being a freshman, believed everything he heard. -Mary Frances Tatloek, '34, BOBBY BURNS AND HIS POETRY I like most poetry, but I love Burns' poetry. HThe simple annals of the poorll are written of more lovingly and clearly by Burns than even by Thomas Gray. Burns writes about common peo- ple 5 but, somehow, he makes me feel that the com- mon people really are not common, but that it is the other way around. His poetry written in Scotch dialect is as musical as that of Sidney Lanier, but it is much more beautiful because of the kindliness and the understanding feeling toward human-kind which pervade all his poems. Burns knows so well how to mix pathos and quiet humor that in reading one poem I chuckle, and in another I have a tight feeling around my throat. His poetry does more than strike the ear, it strikes the heart as well. I think that Burns was a genius, but not a com- mon genius. Any brilliant person can be satirical and temperamental, but Burns was very uncom- mon and unusual because he maintained his dig- nity, common sense, and kindly good humor throughout both his trials and triumphs. His hu- mor is not bitter or stinging as might have been that of many others in his situation, it is rich and gentle and simple. It requires no force to get ap- preciation. A quiet chuckle just seems to slip out, leaving me refreshed and good-natured. Burns seemed to love everything possible to be loved. What greater thing can a man hope for than that? -Robert Hohn, '34. 50 STEELE SPOTLIGHT SUMMER BREEZES I awoke in the quiet stillness of a summer night and felt the soft, warm breeze that wafted the sweet, cool smell of perfumed flowers which grew beneath my window. The breeze gently stirred the ruffled curtains and caressed my pillow. As I lay there, comfortable, relaxed, I pictured canoes on still, blue waters, floating beneath low- hanging, web-spun trees. I saw myself rolled in a blanket beside a campfire in the forest, with the whispering of pines lulling me to sleep. Once again I was on the plains listening to the lonely song of the cowboy. Far away I heard the dis- tant rumble and splash of water dashing over the jagged-edged rocks of the mountains. Through the caress of the summer winds I was sitting on grassy hill-sides in Honolulu, beside the sparkling tide that rose and fell in enchanting murmur. The scent of June roses brought to me the vividness of starry nights within the rose-decked, walled-in gardens of southern France. I drifted on, building dreams, until the sudden- ness of gentle-pouring rain tapping upon the roof sent me off into contented slumber. -Dorothy Wardlow, '3.,z. O OUR JAZZ ACE Hey-nonny-nonny And a hot-cha-cha, Aboop-boop-a-doop And a rahl rahl rahl This silly little verse seems to characterize this jazz age more than any dignified, intelligent defini- tion. This period is the most boisterous, restless, and supposedly sophisticated one in the evolution of the world. When we speak of the jazz age, we not only think of the syncopated, rhythmical music of this age, but also of the people and the way they speak and act. Our ancestors would probably be violently shocked if they could see their worldly great-grand- son or daughter. We think we are being sophis- ticated by being peculiarly indifferent toward the bright, human side of life. The more indifferent and blase we can be toward the things in which the past generations have had such great enjoyment, the more modern we think we are. 'fActions speak louder than wordsl' certainly holds true in this jazz age, and the bored, sophisticated present generation is probably secretly being given a merry, amused laugh by those whom we nonchalantly call the Hold-timers". The jazz age seems to have a modern language of its own. It is possible that Milton, or Shake- speare would be dumbfounded by the jargon of the jazz age. An entirely new dictionary could be written on this language, and probably be some- thing like this: flHi-ya,l' meaning HGood morningf' HGood afternoon," or UGood evening," Htoodle- doo,l' meaning Hgood-byeng 'Ita-ta,7' also means may be used Hgood-byel' or Hfarewellgn f'nuts," either as an exclamation meaning "no,ll or a sen- express chic or to "walk, run, tence Ut is the nutsj. It may prettiness, Hankle alongl' means or move along." Much of the expression of this modern lan- guage depends upon the tone of voice and the man- ner in which it is said. As an example the ex- planation, 'lWhat a lovely day," said in a sincere and honest tone of voice, is quite different from the same sentence said in a sarcastic, sneering man- ner. The two words, "oh, yesj' may be used to express doubt, insinuate an untruth, show interest, denote finality, or ask a question. It is all accord- ing to the tone and expression in the voice. There are three things which classify the jazz age-the syncopated music, the peculiar jargon, and the actions of the people. -Peggy Young, '34. SKATING Rolling swiftly toward ,the moon Down a lane of shadowy trees, 'Round a curve and down a hill Onward through the evening breeze. Each stride longer than the last, Each one faster than before, Then our steps we must retrace, Returning to our homes once more. -Kathleen Holland, '34, STEELE SPOTLIGHT 51 HOW IT FEELS TO BE A WINNER Speech by William Selz, Columbus, Ohio, May 18. Awarded First Rank in the State in Ohio State Scholarship Tests. Much of the pleasure derived from being a winner is lost in the experience of presenting a talk this morning. Since this talk, as I see it, is supposed to be something of a mental auto- biography, I shall try to adhere to the rules set down for biography: first, that the biographer feel and Usufferll with the subject. I can vouch for my utter sympathy with the subject, especially in his present predicamentg second, that the biog- rapher have a close acquaintance with his sub- ject-none has a better in the present case, and third, that the biographer have intellectual hon- esty. It would be presumptuous for me, in a talk on such a subject as the present, to lay down a code of behavior with which the winners of the future should comply. It would arouse your suspicion of ghost writing if I were to give a lengthy analysis of the psychological effect of winning. Therefore, I shall try to be as impersonal as possible, always keeping in mind that I am voicing individual opinion and not attempting to formulate a code of ethics for the winners. j When the question, HI-Iow does it feel to be a winner?i' is asked, the person questioned finds himself in a difficult position. This is true es- pecially if the winning came in a competitive test similar to the one given by the State Depart- ment of Education. He is tempted to paint a glowing picture of the great emotions that stirred him upon hearing of his achievement, he is tempted to describe the intoxicating happiness that swept all other thoughts away. But he realizes that such a description of the mental condition after winning is greatly exaggerated. The emotions felt are less spontaneous, less intense, and more lasting. H The subject, How it Feels to be a Winner," undoubtedly has thousands of possible interpreta- tions, depending on the nature of the contest. The emotion felt by a participant in a competitive test is nothing like that of a victorious marathon run- ner, because of the vast difference between the events in which they take part. Taking the mara- thon field and the entire education of a student in preparation for such a test as the standards of comparison, we easily see that the pace is far less gruelling for the student. The runner keeps up a steady, exhausting pace. Mental development comes in spurts. There is an opportunity to sit down occasionally and rest on the field. In a marathon contest, the runner can see who is run- ning with him. An examination contestant is running blindly, having no idea whatsoever as to the merits or positions of those unknown individ- uals competing with him. Herein lies the real thrill of participating in the examination and even more of winning. Nor can the emotion of the winner be compared to that of a jockey in the Kentucky Derby. The jockey furnishes the guidance and the encourage- ment in his race, the contestant must furnish his own physical drive. He is fortunate if he is able to supply his own guiding influence and see clearly the objective toward which he is striving. Few are able to do so. Winning the senior test offers encouragement for the future. In spite of the profundities of brilliant critics from abroad, who seem to think that the American student thinks only of his im- mediate well-being, the normal student has higher ideals and greater ambitions than our learned friends can conceive in their own self-contentment. But at times it is depressing to any person with ambition when he thinks that his efforts are count- ing for nothing. He searches for some test of his ability, so that he may definitely establish proof of having accomplished something. It is a rare privilege to have fears and doubts at least tem- porarily dispelled by winning. As a result, one looks toward the future with higher hopes and ex- pectation. Winning is accompanied by something of a sense of shame. It hurts the conscience to think that so much was obtained when so little of what was possible was offered by the contestant. A little knowledge may be a dangerous thing, but at least it serves its purpose when applied conservatively. The fundamental emotion felt upon winning es- capes classification and description. It is pleasant because it has conceived winning. It is accompanied by a certain sense of temporary tranquillity and satisfaction. But the contentment that it brings is soon overshadowed by remembrance of the possi- bilities of the future. After the first few moments of enjoyment, the winner turns away and wonders 52 STEELE SPOTLIGHT if the opportunity will ever again be offered to him of presenting a talk on f'How It Feels to Be a Win- ner." -William Selz, '3,1. REFLECTIONS IN A MIRROR A bright red hat and a cardinal scarf framed a pair of twinkling brown eyes, two deep-set dim- ples and small ruby lips. The background for this small laughing girl was a group of budding maples. The afternoon sun shone through the almost-bare limbs of the trees onto a ,carpet of green grass. An ancient deserted farm-house was in the far background. Behind this flash of red came a jolly Viking youth. Another couple and still a third flashed before me in a minute's time. The merry scene was prolonged by a second glance in the driver's mirror. Sunny spring afternoons are delightful when one is in the midst of budding trees, blooming violets, and dwarf iris. I took my foot off the accelerator and slowed down considerably. My eyes were inclined to obey the call of nature, re- fraining to look too often on the road in front of me, but glancing up ever so often to the small mirror above the windshield. A bent figure was ahead of me in the road, and as I passed this aged man I saw that he was poorly clad in ragged, though clean, clothes. My eyes returned to the mirror often to see if he were still plodding his weary way onward to some point un- known, probably even to himself. To these un- fortunate persons spring is a blessing, too. 'fStay over to this side of the road, daughter!" I heard a watchful father say to the young hiker beside him. As my car whizzed by them I could see that she was a friend of mine. I stopped the car, and again I could see that in the reflection of my ever-faithful mirror the glad faces of Betty and her father were nearing the car. They had been enjoying a day in the woods but were glad to settle down in the comfortable seat of the car and to be driven back to town. Next Sunday I shall be glad to go riding with my parents, for then I can sit back comfortably and enjoy spring and her beauty instead of strain- ing my neck to see only reflections in the mirror. -Ruth Fay Morgan, '34. SPRING Star dust And mandolin tune, We shall dance 'Neath a sweet new moon. Over the dew drops, Trampling down clover, Laughing gayly For winter's overg Flinging troubles And cares away, Saving saneness For break of day. -Erma Gillam, '34 THE GARDEN IS LAUGHING The garden is laughing Because it is spring. The gay flowers flutter As if they'd take wing. From the budding maples The meadow larks sing. The red bird is building a nest just over the way. In the flickering sunlight The butterflies play. The whole world is laughing And happy today. -Kenneth Kline, '34 NIGHT The earth has slowly gone to rest, The dusky shadows fall, The sun is hidden in the west, The moon, a silver ball. Darkness has put the world to sleep, Has stilled the clang and roarg The moon will silent vigil keep Until the night is oler. -Geraldine Webb, ' 3,1 STEELE SPOTLIGHT 53 SPRING HATS Upon a warm day I suddenly discovered that spring was here. The birds were twittering, the trees were blooming, the flowers scenting the air, and my wardrobe was sadly in need of replenish- ing. Reversing the usual order of action, I planned to start from the top and go down. I, therefore, hopped aboard a street car comfortably filled with women going on an afternoon's orgy of shopping. After settling myself as comfortably as possible in an uncomfortable seat, I turned to view my com- panions. What a shock greeted my eyes! 'iCould it be possible," I thought to myself, 'fthat styles have changed so?" I never realized that I had been so unobservant. There ahead of me was a hat, if it could be called such, resembling a bell-hop's headgear even to the chin straps, only it was worn opposite the chin. I shifted my eyes to a huge person across the aisle. Her Uchapeaul' seemed like a misplaced flower garden. Ahead of her was a bit of curious plumage. I'm sure no one has ever seen anything like it before, and she probably never will. Still another had her hat perched at a precarious position on the side of her head. When I reached my destination, I was certain that I was not going to be tricked into buying a silly symphony of a hat. Upon arriving at the object of my search, I divested my head of its present covering, which looked strangely out of place in the midst of those blooming, feathered, queerly cocked hats. A saleslady came to my aid, and in lucid terms, praised my type, while gathering from nowhere some of the previously described af- fected pieces of materials. 'I spurned all her so- licitous advances, and left with but one thought in mind. I would begin with shoes. Being certain that my financial condition would not permit rapid pur- chase, I hoped that by the time I reached the top, the styles would have changed sufficiently for me to look like a human being, and not a stolid personal- ity, suddenly gone fthay-wiren. -Jayne H averstick, '34. AUTUMN BONFIRES Dusk was slowly gliding over the countryside. The air was filled with the pungent fragrance of the gray-blue smoke which curled for a time above the full yellow flames of the bonfire and then floated off in fantastic shapes to blend with the softened and vague colors of the horizon. As it became darker, the lavenders and misty blues of the distant hills merged into one great rolling shape of deep blue, overcast by a high, clear sky of lighter hue in which the sparkling stars slowly made their appearance. The darkness only served to enhance the bright- ness of the fire, enlivened from time to time with leaves which in their gorgeous colorings seemed like flames in themselves. There was a great still- ness everywhere except for the cheerful crackling of the crisp leaves as they burned. The air grew cooler, the fire died slowly. The stars in their eternal brightness gleamed through the black branches which formed a net of coarse lace against the blue heavens above. Now and then the stillness was disturbed by the dry rust- ling of a falling leaf. -Betty Flick, ' 34. I VIOLETS The shy, elusive violet That ere had hid its face, Among the tender leaves Deep in a woodland place, Has spread its eager petals Wide open to the sky, And donned the royal purple , Of kings and queens gone by. -Pauline Gebert, '34.

STEELE SPOTLIGHT 55 3' CM LIGHTNING To primitives lightning is mysterious and the least understood of natural phenomena. The Greek and Romans thought thunder and lightning to be weapons of Zeus and jupiter. They thought that such powerful weapons as those could belong only to Jupiter. Modern science has removed the mystery and proved that lightning is made by huge electrical discharges. The movement of these charges makes heat as well as light. Benjamin Franklin first showed the relation between electricity and light- ning. Unlike a solid, which is charged only on the surface, a thunder cloud is charged throughout its volume, because it is made up of an immense num- ber of small electrified particles. When the charged cloud comes near the earth, an electrified charge of opposite sign is produced on the surface of the earth by electrostatic induction. The air close to this electrical discharge is spread out by the dis- charge and creates a great wave which we call thunder. The sound wave comes after the light- ning because light waves travel much faster than sound waves. Thunder is rarely heard at dis- tances of more than fifteen or twenty miles. Pro- fessor Rood of Columbia University showed that the so-called single flash of lightning which usually lasts several tenths of asecond is really a succession of flashes, each of which lasts but a few thou- sandths of a second or less. There are three distinct types of lightning. The first is designated as forked lightning, which ap- pears to be a long brilliant flash, which separates into branches and is of a rosy or violet tint. The second class of lightning is sheet lightning. This has no definite form. It is generally of a rosy tint 34 and lights up the clouds on the horizon. The third type of lightning is called ball lightning, which is said to appear as a small brilliant globe slowly floating in the air a short distance above the ground or even rolling over the ground. One story about ball lightning was told by a man who said he was sitting in his house when a ball of lightning rolled in his front door, on through the house and out the back door. This statement may not be exactly true, but reliable observers have said such things have happened. Ball lightning generally breaks up with an explosion which is not very destructive or dangerous. -James Wallace, '34, THE ACTION OF ATOMS IN MOVIES In two recently completed movies, 'tThe Mo- lecular Theory of Matter,'l and 'tOxidation and Reductionj, the action of atoms is shown. These pictures were made under the auspices of the Uni- versity of Chicago, and are intended especially for classroom use. One of the pictures shows a machine-gunner pull his trigger, and a hail of bullets pounds a heavy steel plate. A gage needle behind the target swings over and stays there, held by the force of the rapid succession of impacts, until the firing ceases. By this vivid analogy, one of the films illustrates an otherwise difficult concept-how individual molecules of gas, bombarding the walls of a closed vessel, create a steady pressure by the cumulative force of their impacts. Similarly other traits of atoms and molecules, difficult to describe, are made understandable, with the aid of microscopic and time-lapse photography, and comparisons with familiar objects. 56 STEELE SPOTLIGHT To illustrate Hoxidationl' a blow torch burns its way through a steel plate. The operation of a coke oven is shown. The rusting of metal is ex- plained as still another example of oxidation, a chemical process not limited to actual burning. Sometimes the process can be run in reverse. Then chemists call it Hreductionw. Thus the film shows how iron rust can be turned back again into pure iron by placing it in a glass tube above a battery of burners and blowing hydrogen gas over it. Proof of the feat of chemical sleight-of-hand is given when an electro-magnet, which will not attract pieces of rust, picks up the fragments of iron. Pictures such as these, their sponsors believe, give an audience an unforgettable insight into the behavior of matter. The new films visualize how atoms in the aggregate enter into every manls per- sonal life. The way the ninety-two varieties of atoms are grouped into molecules determines whether a substance shall be water, iron, or flesh and blood. -Everett Smith, '3.1. ART CLUB The Art Club is composed of both boy and girl students and is under the direction of Miss Valen- tine. The society usually meets every other Fri- day after school, and at the meetings many inter- esting activities are arranged. The members have redecorated the old club room in the basement so that it may be more conveniently used for society meetings. The paint and materials were purchased with money from the treasury. The society en- joyed a picnic at Hills and Dales on Saturday, May 26. Betty Flick is the current president. LIBRARY CLUB The Library Club is a new organization at Steele, and its first year has proved to be very successful. The members of the society devote a certain amount of their time each day to working in the library. They check the attendance, the in-coming and out- going books, and help with the other necessary work in the library. They are of great service to the school and deserve much commendation. The society is making arrangements for a picnic. It is advised by Miss Kyle, and Martha Apple presides over the weekly meetings. THE AUDITORIUM DEBATES 'fMr. Moderator, honorable judges, worthy op- ponents, the subject for this morningis debate is- Resolved: the N. R. A. Should be Adopted as a Permanent Government Policyf' With these words, William Selz, first speaker of the affirma- tive, opened the Auditorium Debate of 1934. From 8:30 to 10:00 the junior and Senior classes of Steele experienced the most thrilling event of their high school career. Well organized and forceful arguments were presented equally well bythe speak- ers of the affirmative: William Selz, Ruth Asz- ling, Robert Forsberg, and Milton Graham, and those of the negative: William Gans, Richard Pryor, Ralph Ablon, and Mary Alice Creager. When the speeches had been given and the last rebuttal completed, a tense excitement filled the air. The Moderator at last received the votes of the honorable judges, and looking at their contents, pleasurably smiled at the audience, and announced the decision in favor of the negative. When the applause had subsided, the affirmative hastened to congratulate their victorious opponents. A hum of such phrases as ffWasn't it grand- Finest ever-Excellent delivery-Wonderful su- pervision," flowed among the students as they de- parted to their classes. The debate had given the seniors an inspiration for their ovm debates, and also had given the juniors a criterion of attain- ment for their following year. The judges were as follows: Mrs. Agnes Osborn Beck, graduate of Chicago University, former Senior English teacher at Steele, and, while at Steele, coach with Miss Hunter in Inter-scholastic debates with winning teams, Attorney George Murray, former Steele student, graduate of Chi- cago University, and recipient of the first scholar- ship to Chicago University given to a Steele gradu- ate, and Attorney Irvin Bieser, former Steele stu- dent, a member of Steelels Inter-scholastic debate team the last year Steele debated Shortridge High School, Indianapolis, Indiana, and a graduate of Harvard University. The Moderator was Mr. Seigler, and the time- keepers were Mr. Eastman and Mr. Mattis. Miss Mary Alice Hunter supervised the debates, The following were chosen as Commencement speakers: Ralph Ablon, Ruth Aszling, Robert Forsberg, and William Selz.

This year it was awarded the All-American hon- ors in the nation-wide contest sponsored by the National Scholastic Press association. The award, 'fAll-Americanl' or 'fSuperior" is the highest rat- ing that a high school newspaper can receive. One judge in this competition said: 'fYou have a good paper and your staff is to be congratulated on the excellent way it has covered the news source and written the copyfl We, too, offer this congratu- lation, and are glad to exchange with a winner of such high honors. The editorial on the death of Lee Wilkinson, a former student of Wheeling High School, is a fine tribute to the boy. We should like to repeat here his sonnet quoted in this essay: t'Ask not whence I came nor where I go, My early life means nothing unto you. For painting them can never paint me true. My tired feet may have slipped, but no one's hand Can paint the dazzling sunlight on the road That dizzied me until I could not stand, But fell headlong upon the spot I trod. For now's the time, the glorious, glorious now! The hour of trial is this hour of time, And if I win or fail, let not my brow Be judged by past-won laurels or old grime. The past, the future-they both melt away Before the brilliant sunlight of today." 'fBlue and Goldl' Central High School Aberdeen, South Dakota The most unusual event in any of the papers is UField Dayll at Central High School, Aberdeen. South Dakota, recorded in the "Blue and Gold". tfField Dayl' is the annual day set aside for the friendly rivalry of the junior and senior classes. The junior and senior class presidents are marshals of the day, and every home room is present on the field. Contests between the two classes in golf, tennis, girls, baseball, horseshoe pitching, tug-ol-war, and color-fighting, take place during the day. The outing is climaxed by a Field Day party at eight in the evening. Lessons and books are forgotten for at least one day, and all have a good time. The HBlue and Gold" is a weekly school paper. 'tOld Hughes" Hughes High School Cincinnati, Ohio This issue of the ffOld Hughesw is dedicated to UCincinnati, the City of Fine Artsll. In an essay on HRookwood Potteryfl the process of making that famous pottery is described in detail. In a sec- ond, Clement J. Barnhorn, noted sculptor of Cincinnati, is interviewed. Cincinnati opera is treated in a third, and f'Through the Curtain" gives a series of interviews with famous stage stars, such as, Ethel Barrymore, Ina Claire, Pauline Frederick, Eva Le Gallienne, Madge Kennedy, and Effie Shannon. UNocturne", a short story on art, tells of a young man whose talents and ambitions are destroyed by a tragic accident. The next issue, the last, will be devoted to valuable pieces of art in Hughes High School. The staff of UOld Hughesl' should again be commended for their excellent work in presenting this outstanding school maga- zine.
