L is ' J "HAIL AND FAREWELLU As the school year draws to a close, we seniors realize that our pleasant days spent at Steele are soon to be ended. Like the end of a perfect day, we dread realizing that our three years of enjoyment through the acquisition of knowledge, through the strong friendships made, the Fine ideals instilled, are to end with graduation. This school has meant a great deal to all of us. Our principal and assistant principal have made us feel that Steele is our schoolg we should better it if possible, be proud of it, hold it high in our thoughts. We cannot express in words our deep appreciation to all the teachers for their untiring efforts in order to prepare us for later life. They have instilled within us the desire to make our lives worth while. They have been the guiding torch, leading us on to high thoughts, morals, and desires. They have always been willing to help us, and to them we owe our sincerest thanks. We want them to feel that they are our permanent friendsg and that whenever we can be of aid, We are at their service. "To have a true friend is to possess one of the world's greatest treasures." We appreci- ate the number of highly valuable friendships that we have made in our school careers. When we graduate, we want to retain them as worthy assets. The association with other boys and girls in school has been, perhaps, one of the finest possible means of preparation for later life. We have acquired many friends and, at the same time, poise and mental balance. In school our extracurricular activities have rounded out our personalities and physical characteristics. We have had ample oppor- tunity for the cultivation and training in leadership. In athletics our athletes have been instilled with strong hearts and good ethics of sportmanship. Every type of school activity entered into has helped us in some way or in some manner, intellectually, physically, or morally. Our school has been the vital factor in the expansion of our mental ability, in the development of our personality, in the completion of new American manhood and womanhood. We look back with joyous feelings at the innumerable pleasant experiences that we have enjoyed in our short school careers. We most certainly will retain the strong friendships made, the high ideals created, and the vast knowledge received in our three years as Steele students. As we leave let us say, '4Hail and farewell to Steele, the Hnest school in the land." "Cheer for Steele High School, hail her bright name, Deep in our hearts will her memory remain." Leonard Levy, '35. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 9 AFTER GRADUATION, WHAT? Yesterday it was education, today it is gradu- ation, tomorrow it is separation, then what? After graduation, we pass from the premier stage of manhood and womanhood to the ad- vanced period. The crucial stage of our lives stands before us, Our future depends upon it. Can we afford to waste it? The burdens of life will slowly be clamped upon our shoulders. Are we prepared to carry them? Many of us will be fortunate enough to be able to attend a school of higher learning and thus be better prepared to meet this situa- tion. However, the greater percentage will be compelled to rely on past education combined with forthcoming experience. From a common class in preparatory educa- tion, we shall be separated, some of us to meet again, others never. The vast fields of profes- sion, business, and domestic happiness will be traversed by us. Many will wander away, never again to see Steele or Dayton. Thus a Steele influence will be carried to business, to homes, and to different parts of the world through our children. Remember, the road to success is steep and full of difficulties. For some it will be an easy climb, for others rough and perhaps very difH- cult, unless-unless you, the fortunate ones, lend a helping and guiding hand. Student co- operation is fundamental at Steeleg cooperation among fellowmen is of invaluable aid in life. We are all Godls children, we were all created equal, therefore no man is better than his neighbor, regardless of race, color, creed, or financial conditions. This is the road that lies ahead. Its summit can be gained only by constant striving and efforts on our parts. Today, graduation, we first place foot on the path. Shall we be able to remain on this straight and narrow path? Shall we be successful? Shall we be happy? After graduation, what? Harry Green, '35. THE HORIZON WIDENS When we were admitted into high school, the one goal toward which we looked was gradua- tion. To us it meant something beautiful and something significant. To some it was the point where our formal education would cease and our life work would beging to others it merely marked the end of the fundamentals in education, and the place where higher learn- ing would begin. But whether we are fortu- nate enough to continue our education, or whether we seek employment, it pleases us to know that we have reached one goal in life. Now, with graduation at our very door- step, the outlook on life is wider. We look with eagerness for new goals to conquer and new fields of endeavor. We see before us a Vast horizon, much more immense than the one we saw when our years of secondary education be- gan. For those who prefer idleness, there are dark clouds aheadg for those who would work in earnestness at any task that may come their way, there is a life of beauty and comfort OH the horizon, and the happiness of a work well done. Our teachers have patiently taught us to live and to appreciate the beautiful things of life. They have instructed us to think cleanly and clearly and to judge wisely and intelligently. To them we owe a debt of gratitude for the unceasing endeavors that they have made f01' the express purpose of preparing us to choose a goal on the widened horizon of life. William Paul, '35.

Right now this is the greatest prob- lem of our lives. All think how splendid it is to be graduated, but, on second thought, do they realize the problems with which they will be confronted? The sophomores and juniors say, "Oh! how lucky you are to be graduated in Junef, They do not know that we seniors are K'racking" our brains to think of what we are going to do after graduation in June. While going to school, we have had our days so occupied with studies that we have never had the chance to think how trying our days would be if we were idle. Some of us may not realize now how much our life in school will mean to us after it is over. Some of us who have no chance for further education will look back and say, HHOW I regret that I did not get more out of my school life." Those who are fortunate will continue their education, but most of us will enter the uni- versity of actual experiences where a routine is not laid out for us, where teachers will not guide us, where the current will engulf us with serious problems. How shall we solve these? Those of us who are physically and mentally strong will in time find a place, and those who are weak will probably fall along the way-side, but we do have one privilege, the hope that only youth can kindle. With that ever before us as a beacon light, we will go through this, what we term, life, as successes or failures. Each year brings greater problems of un- employment because of the social conditions. We are entering a world of turmoil out of a peaceful classroom. That is why it will be so difficult to adjust ourselves to the extreme change. Let us hope and pray that the future will hold for all of us, and those who will follow us, peace and contentment and the kind of suc- cess that we have set out to seek. Marion Margolis, '35, IN THE GARDEN I saw a row of hollyhocks Within a garden bright and small, Along a path of sun-warmed rocks And by an ivy-covered wall. They stood so tall, so stiff and prim, Such glorious hues and colors rare, Red, pink, and white, and ivory dim, Were mingled with the green leaves there And still, in memory, I retain A picture of that flowered train. Margaret Mikesell, '35, THREE YEARS! C A Toast Q Three years! Gone by as clouds that scurry far above, Three years! First doubt, next hope, then love. Three years! We've spent inside these ancient walls, Three years! We've walked these hallowed halls, And now we graduate! Three years! Are done of work and toil by day, Three years! That filled with study quickly pass away, Three years! A toast to you, old Steele, Three years! Need we explain just how we feel, Now that we graduate? James Stichter, '35. JUNE A murmuring river, crystal clear, Speckled trout playing near, Granite boulders draped in spray, Radiant June kneels down to pray. June, so beautiful and fair, Is wearing cherries in her hair.

His ex- periences are known within a radius of six miles, the greatest distance any fly has ever attained. He impressed me very much with his stories of Steele students. One day when I was reading in the home edition of the Flypaper about a famous department store in New York, I found that it was run entirely by former Steele students. I immediately packed my tie, shirt, and toothbrush and was there in a few hours. My entrance was not the grand thing it might have been, however. I was gallantly rescued from a sad experience with the revolving door by the dignified doorman, John Rudy. After this I found my way to the Information Desk and received explicit direc- tions from Mary Jane Deeter as to the whereabouts of the beautiful new dining-room. On my way I buzzed into a very important lady-we collided, so to speak. I practically fell off her nose from astonish- mentg it was Bee Harris, the president of the Girl Scouts of America. She was surprised, in fact, she slapped me. Shels changed her name to Mrs. Ted Brinkmeyer, of Brinkmeyer, Baker, and Asher, lawyers. I wended my way finally to the elevator, narrowly escaping Mrs. Chris Dale Cnee Elizabeth Smithj. Their penthouse is the talk of the town. She was accom- panied by her chauffeur, Robert Hall, a governess for the three children, Louise Esterlineg and a private detective, Edward King. They were all guarding the beautiful necklace Mrs. Dale wore, given to her by a friend, Virginia Bucher. Virginia was traveling in Europe at the time. The elevator came in sight. I breezed on and asked the elevator boy for the floor of the dining-room. Allen Stokes answered with this startling remark: "Third floor-ladies, ready-to-wear, shoes, book shop, and knitting school. Watch your stepf, As the elevator ascended I looked about me and saw Anne Oscherwitz, Eileen Fisher, Dorothy Good, Katherine Ganster, Hellen Kelly, Doris McDonald, Helen Hutzelman, Christine Bell, Margaret Durnell, and Evalyn Fetterhoff apparently headed for the cook- ing school which, I found later, was taught by Miss Ruth Katz, who had gone far in that profession. After leaving the elevator I skittered along over the heads of an interested group comprised of Phyllis Frappier, Peggy Steger, Mary Folino, Janet Husted, Angeline Make, and Miriam Davy, who were watching a new washer being demonstrated with much gusto by Eugene DuVal. I dare say it was a fine machine, since it had been invented by the noted Robert Lowman and Charles Levy. Just at that instant the unforeseen happened, and our worthy demonstrator and Kilbourne Nigh, buyer for the lingerie department, who was passing, were splattered from top to toe with lovely soapsuds made from the best of soap flakes which, by the way, was a product of the brilliant John Lee. Darting away just in time, I continued onmy way to the dining-room, and, my good friends, I really got there this time. As I entered I was enthralled by the beautiful music of Harry Cramer's Orchestra. Ah, but why wouldn't the music be wonderful when it was being produced by such talented perfonners as Paul Smith, Robert Zimmer, on vacation from South America, Lloyd O'Hara, Norman Cowden, Walter Green, Dwight Ullery, singers, Carl Hancock, Frank Miller, Robert Cherry, and Robert Ulrich. The three melody sisters, Clara Banta, bass, Edith Buske, con- tralto, and Dewey Butts, soprano, were crooning into a microphone. I spoiled the little party, and it sounded over the radio like a machine gun going off. Or at least thatls what my friends told me when I got back home. Feeling slightly faint, I landed on the nearest table. What richness! The finest imported celery, grown by Marjorie Coffman in her California garden, sun- ripe oranges from the famous McMillen grove in Ari- zona. Miss McMillen, the owner, is an inspiring actress. Who should be eating at this table but Bruce Witwer, president of the department store, and Philip Stein, treasurer. Incidentally, Phil was spending a lot of money. William Paul, business manager, was also eating wth them, or pretended to. His lawyers, Pickrel, Paulos 8: Rohr, had just told him that he had lost S100,000 in the stock market on Washlake, Inc., dealing in silver found in lakes. A lovely waitress was gathering up the dishes. Ellen Weimar, the man- nequin who is talked about all over New York, was displaying what the modern waitress will wear. Dresses by Rhea Smart, Fifth Avenue. She seemed to be very much interested in Tom Radabaugh, the famous swordsman and fencer. Some of his pupils, James Dickson, the red-haired duelistg Mark Deal, a wonder- ful lungerg and Tom Cole, his assistant, were lunch- ing with him. Over in a corner, Mr. Weaver, owner of a large motorcycle corporation, was giving a dinner party for his super-salesmen and salesladies. They were Eugene Burton, Ben Brock, Frank Zavakos, Calvin Mefford, James Zehring, Marion Merritt, Robert Long, Delphos Owen, Magnus Margolis, Jack Holton, Robert STEELE SPOTLIGHT 41 Swank, Tipton Clark, and Stanley Schultz. The women included Sally Weller, a speed demon, Edith West, who could drive a cycle standing on her head, and Gladys Jache. They all were very adept motorcyclists. In fact, they used motorcycles instead of automobiles. After dinner, I flew to the ceiling and settled there for a nap. I lost my hold and landed in Forest Ward's soup, the famous bowler ,now run- ning a recreation hall in the store. He bowled me out quickly. I hastened to the door, and: there was Jean Carlson back from her non-stop flight. Her mechanic on the trip was Thomas Courtney, the playboy who likes to work. As president of the Trace Kline, Kiacs and Stowe Furniture "Pay As You Get It" Company, he decided to get away from it all. Well, I finally got out of the dining-room. Feeling the need of some mental exercise, I decided to visit the bookshop next. As I was nonchalantly buzzing past one of the shelves, I saw something which made me come to a dead-stop. It was the sight of a bright red book entitled "Life Begins When You Get Up," written by none other than Mr. John Pickin, rising young author and an enthusiastic long-distance walker. The illustrations the book contained were the most catchy that I had seen for quite a long time. They were the result of the talent of Jayne Tilton, who was at this time an artist famous in every civilized country. Turning aside, I heard a very enthusiastic voice inquiring of June Stocker, the person in charge, as to the latest volume of poetry published by Patty Murphy. The possessor of the enthuiastic voice was Earl Schultz, evidently one of the poet's most ardent admirers. He finally took "The Latest Adventures of Wee Willie Wolf," by Maxine Wilson. It was a restful place, and, being tired, I reclined on the arm of a chair. There was Mary Wirsching, writer of "The Care and Feeding of Animals," eating Goodman candy bars and reading Collin Hawkins' "Life of Robert Gross, the Deep-Sea Diver." I hurried out of the bookshop and into the knitting school. I was nearly crocheted into a sweater Betty Atkins was making. If you laid all the sweaters end to end that she had knitted, you would have the best assortment of sweat- ers in the country. People paid just to watch her. There was Eileen Breaden, president of an eastem Girls' College, and Adele Block, known for her fancy knitting, and Dorothea Wicke, who holds the world's record for the fastest knitting, " a sweater made while you wait." Ruthanna Hatfield was there, serving tea. Her drop-stitches had captured the admiration of the whole country. Dorothy McCrabb was delivering her famous debate: "Resolved, That knitting is a pastime, not a pleasurefl Her colleagues were Doris Heckman and Janet Hart, her opponents were Mary E. Hyre, Clarice Newberger, and Nancy Simes. Knitting my way out of the room, I hurried to the Women's Sport Shoppe. Camilla Suarez, in charge, was assisted by Kay Furnas and Ruth Lantz. Betty Frank was there, buying costumes for her latest revue, "In the Good Old Days of '35," by Webster Roberts. Some famous dancers were with her, including Florence Phillips, Margaret Miller, Elaine Malloy, and Ruth Buchanan. Dorothy Jane Bernard, celebrated monologist, was buying a very simple linen suit, designed by Winifred DeWeese, for her latest sketch, which she wrote her- self. As I was flitting around, I suddenly became aware of a style show which was in progress. I immediately recognized many famous models of the day, among whom were Eileen Pope, Sara Sabo, Mary Ann Frizell, June Traub, Ruth Tumer, Kenneth Emrick, Hawley Penn, and William Ford. The best came last, it was a mock wedding and, oh, what beauty! The bride was Marion Charuhas, who wore a gorgeous creation of white lace and carried lillies from the flower shop of Louise Frisch. Robert Parker was the blushing bridegroom. The bridesmaids, gowned in dainty pas- tels, lent additional charm to the scene. They were Marjorie Colby, Mildred Blum, Kathryn Bolenbaugh, Margaret Curtis, Mary Jane Hoban, and Dorothy De- trich. James Wilcox, may I add, was the best man. After leaving this beautiful place I was found no- where in particular, but was soon lost in the folds of Betty Jane Worrell's umbrella. After finally finding my way out of this dilemma, I narrowly missed plung- ing straight into a glass of Coca-Cola which was held by John Harshman, the illustrious multi-millionaire. Talking with him were three other influential busi- nessmen of the time. They were Frank Steinke, Rob- ert McKale, and Paul Mount. Behind the counter I saw Harry Wagner and Harold Fouch, accomplished soda jerkers. As I continued on my way, I passed Lydia Osborn doing pastels of children, June Curtiss, busy sketch- ing an imported gown, and the offices of Mary Horst- man, the photographer. In her display window I noticed a picture of Betty Jane Ellis. Next I took my way along the corridors of the sec- tion of the building given over to offices. On the first door I saw the name of Dale Lloyd, D.D.S. My curiosity being aroused, I followed Ellen Sinks and Violet Mueller into the waiting room, or, to be per- fectly frank, I rode in atop Ellen's new chapeau, a creation by Betty Gillam, famous milliner of McCar- thy, Gradsky, and Herzog. Inside were seated James Owen. The latter Moore, Richard Rice, and George was looking so sad that I knew he must be next. Farther down the hall I entered the law office of Harshman Miller, who was at that time busily talking with Violet Deering, who was suing her latest hus- band, Gerald Helker, for divorce. I noticed a beauti- ful stenographer over in a corner. When I had settled on her Ledford portable, I recognized her as Helen Sword. She was getting out a court summons. I had just read, Samuel Klarin, plaintiff, versus Lewis Chance, defendant, when I was shooed off the shift key. I flew out the door over the heads of Wendell Thomas and Lester Drury, who were just coming in, and followed Franklin Graham, owner of the newest 42 STEELE SPOTLIGHT and most elaborate hotel in New York. He was on his way to meet Harry Green, of Green's Laundry, George Tyler, manager of the New York Sun, owned by Charles Friend, and Donald Bristow, Secretary of War in the cabinet of Francis Smith, President. Turning a corner, I came upon a group of people entering the school for training in better salesman- ship. There was Charlotte Vangrove, buyer of gloves, Mary Jane Routzong, from the infants' wear, Gladys Redding, ready-to-wear, Thelma Parnell, hosiery, Eleanor Hargrove, jewelry, Doris Tharr, notions, Betty Brownell, silverware, and George Turney, leather- goods. The regular instructor was Frank Worbs, as- sisted by Collins Wight. I happened to look into a mirror and noticed that my eyebrows needed plucking, so I thought I'd better look up the beauty shop before I looked too terrible. The shop was managed by M. Maurice Bertelstein, who shaped the most charming coiffures in New York. Bill Fitzpatrick, who was giving a wave to Richard Martin, was the permanent waver. He had invented the William Wave, which was taking New York by storm. Willard Gerling was the chief barber. At that moment he was in the midst of cutting Athella Geyer's golden locks. Jess Conners and Jim Carter were get- ting a manicure given by Bette Moler and Electra Eby, respectively. Everyone was busy and no one seemed to pay any attention to me, so I left. I was buzzing around James Levering, the floor- walker, who was telling Agnes Crusey very emphat- ically that the basement store was in the basement. I decided to breeze along with Agnes and soon found myself in the ten-cent store. There I saw Micky Reardon, she was in charge of a chain of these stores. She knew exactly what would appeal to the people and was fast becoming the richest woman in the city. Who should be shopping there but Mrs. John Reed Knee Charlotte Poockj, wife of the Secretary of State. His private secretary was Joy Sterzenbach, and her private secretary was Miriam Ritchee. Keith Max, with that school-girl complexion, was demonstrating Helen Patterson's Face Cream. A group of rapt men and women watched him, including Thelma Maxton, Amelda Mendenhall, Velma Dearing, Helen Koogler, Dorothy Tank, Mary Jane West, Robert Campbell, Libero Daniel, Earl Ray, and Alvin Lukowitz. Look- ing over some of the articles for sale, I saw Fahrer's hairnets, Ellison's nail polish, Stafford's tooth paste, Shoecra.ft's wave set, Wilhoite's false eyelashes, Still- well's powder, and Updyke's curlers. As the grocery was on the same floor as the basement, I sailed over, and there was Ervin Pickles selling- well, what do you think? I looked at cans of foods, and the names Isaw were these: Harden's Hardy Corn, Kerezie's Ketchup, Lehman's Liver, McCleary's May- onnaise, Simpson's Soups, Lent's Lima Beans, Perkin's Pineapples, and Moshos's Mushrooms. The fruits were taken care of in the following manner: Simmon's Citrus Grapefruit, R. Patterson's Peaches, Pfeifferys Pears, and Clay's Cherries. I left the grocery store and made my way to the Little Theater, just for diversion, you know, Their repertoire consisted of ten plays, including "Up from the Bronx," by Ralph Funk, Andrew Carmichae1's "Athletic Boy," Katherine Williams' "Needle in the Pin Cushion," Max Munier's "The Peach Orchard,', Jerry Podoyak's K'Simple Hedda," George Willet's "Life On An Island," James Sidewell's "A Tea Pot of China," Martha Burger's "The Wing On the Bird," Mamie Coughlin's "The Twenty-first Chair," and Janet Way- bright's "Life Goes On." The owner and director of this little theater was Katherine Boose, famed puppet maker, Margaret Sullenbarger, golden-voiced interpretative reader, is working with her. The visiting opera star, Mary Ann Coghill, was rending the air at the moment. She prac- tically blew me out of the door. Having escaped alive, I bumped into Kathryn Angst, school teacher, who had come to visit her old friends. She was with Mary Rose Cromer, superintendent of schools in New York. Richard Stuart's murals decorated the walls of the theater. These murals were so precious that they were guarded by detectives Don Thomas, Charles Aszling, Ernest Fisher, and Richard Juday. These young men had been chosen for their honesty and trustworthiness. Outside I saw Don Rossell, Paul Prear, Dave Gay- lord, Charles Conway, James Jackson, and Martin Samuels, all carrying tennis racquets. They were on their way to the recreation hall. On the way up I buzzed around Jane Hageman, who was just entering the offices of Hageman and Treutle, Designers. They're very successful, too, I hear. As we passed through the furniture department, the sweet music of a violin caught and held my attention. It was a broadcast from Radio City featuring Marjorie Kline, supported by Marion Margolis, Ida Cowens, Bonnie Graham, Vivian Hillman, Mary Matthews, Winifred Poe, Mil- dred Booher, Oma Olinger, Vivian Thomas, and Anna Breese. The announcer was none other than Charles Harbottle, who quite convinced me that I should try Schwartz and Schoen Coffee. The radio that I heard was a Jacobi, put out by the Margolis and Levy Elec- tric Company. At last we were in the recreation hall. The en- trance was virtually lined with pictures of famous sportsmen. Among the football players were E. J. Reynolds, of course, Hubert Noonan, Charles Evans, LeRoy Johnson, Lyn Ryan, and Alena Wheat. The tennis stars, oddly enough, were mostly girls. These were Barbara Lincoln, Margaret Mikesell, Virginia Smith, Charlotte Woerl, Edith Scott, Carl Huffman, Bill Schulmann, Ru.fus Hatfield, Charles Tanis, and Albert George. The prominent golfers of the day are Fred Ware, Robert Crozier, Bertha Mosrow, Bertha Distel, Robert Weaver, Florence Subject, Orvilla Shiv- erdecker, Phyllis Lee, and Marinda Johnson. After watching a set of doubles played by Margie Beard, Dorothy Wurstner, Ruth Templeton, and Vera Shellabarger, I became so enthralled by the game that I set out for the toy department to get a little racquet STEELE SPOTLIGHT 43 for my nephew. Donald Cordier sold me a Stichter racquet and some balls. A few steps to my right Wil- bur Huff was trying to interest Lura Smith and Mar- jorie Emrick in little red wagons for a carnival which they were sponsoring. The proceeds were to go to charity. Turning away, I stared at three great writers of historical novels. They were Clara Distel, Margery Mattis, and Jean Hull. Was that a moment to be remembered! Over in the music department I lingered around to hear Ned Wilgus sing some of the latest favorites. He was accompanied by Miss Doris Pfoutz, who spends one day a week of her busy life here as an attraction that has helped to make this store the famous one that it is I finally chose "Trees in Bloom." The words were written by Mary Jane Stansel and the music by Ann Reeves. And now, dear me, celebrities literally flocked about my ears! There was Mary Scott, founder of two col- 1eg9SS Janie Sowers, flyerg Katherine Lohman, Secre- tary of Labor and noted oratorg Louise Brining, au- thority 011 fO0dS and their preparationg and Rembert Stokes, outstanding lawyer. Right in front of me was the Candy Shoppe, run by Frances George. My, how I like candy! Traveling farther on the same floor, I came to the Cosmetics De- partment. There was Mary Ann Stutz, manager, with "the skin you love to touch." She was talking to the secretary of the vice president, Bernice Boen, who now drives her own Packard which she bought at the Moffat, Samuel, and Simpson Car Company. What a variety of cosmetics there were! M, Steve Malone Lipstick, Harriet Potaskey Powder, Mme. Dolly William- son Compacts, Fred Daum Perfume, Beth Brown Face Cream, Virginia Conley Rouge, Virginia Earley As- tringent and, last but not least, Carmen Wilson Eye Shadow. These famous cosmetic specialists' names have become household words. Across the way was the Bakery and Delicatessen, capably managed by Betty Mundhenk, assisted by Alma Cunningham, Angeline Pool, and Dorothy De- Lora. The special'was butterscotch rolls, but with all my contriving I was not able to sneak into those glass cases for a bite. In the store directory I noticed the Pet Shop, so I flew there as fast as I could. Imagine whom I saw! None other than Jack Breidenbach selling love-birds. But here a terrible thought struck me: I had left my bag up at the swimming pool. I was up there in a jiffyg but when I saw it I got so excited that I plunged head-first into the pool! However, just then along came Dorothy Garber with her butterfly net and fished me out. Dorothy has always been a true friend of insects. Had it not been for her, I should never have lived to tell my tale. 1 Charles Levy 7 Charles Harbottle STEELE SPOTLIGHT 'G' -:- 4- 4- -:- -:- ZZ OHIO STATE TEST FOR SENIORS Rank in County 1 Francis Smith 8 John Lee 3 Mary Scott Honorable Mention Clara Distil, Jean Hull, Bruce Witwer, Keith Max, Eugene DuVal, Martin Samuels, Harshman Miller, James Jacobin, Milton Margolis, Herbert Morris, John Pickin.

'Q' 12' Q1 STEELE SPOTLIGHT 45 2 MAY DAY One wonders how a day of flowers came to That May Day is no longer a general holiday is regrettable, for we need the joyous spirit which once prevailed on such gala days. Our pleasures today are more artificial, we seem to have lost the ability to enjoy the simple things in life. Our people are too sophisticated and too indifferent to arrange gay gatherings like those on former May Days. For centuries the English celebrated this day by a pagan festival taken directly from the Roman Floralia. In early days the ladies and gentlemen joined in the dances. Henry VIII often took part in them. In the sixteenth cen- tury, going forth at an early hour of morning to get flowers and hawthorn branches was still a custom of the middle and humbler classes. They decorated all the doors and windows in the village with the hawthorn branches, which had come to be known as the "May." The fair- est maid was then crowned Queen of the May and decked with multi-colored blossoms. All day the villagers danced and sang, forgetting their cares and the monotony of daily life in this joyful fete. The center of attraction was the May-pole, a fixed pole as high as the mast of a hundred-ton vessel, on which were sus- pended wreaths of flowers. The Puritans caused these poles to be uprooted and, though some were raised again during the Restoration, soon only a few remained. Washington Irving said that he saw one, and that he should never forget the delight he felt on seeing it. This one bare pole was the only reminder of the gay dances. The poets felt the charm of this merry greeting to spring and wrote many exquisite lyrics about it. Few people now celebrate May Day. In London, small bands of chimney sweeps, in fantastic dresses, dance through the street. be observed only by chimney sweeps. In most countries the one thing distinguishing May Day from other days is the fact that there are more riots. We need some general holiday that will rouse popular enthusiasm and cause people to forget some of their selfishness and greed. No cele- bration should vanish that can be hailed as "an image of primeval times and a sample of world to come." Mary Scott, '35. NIGHT SONG Close thine eyes, Think not of moon nor stars, Nor sun, nor dawn! Think not of sunlit glories, Nor purple shadows on the lawng Close thine eyes! Think not of worlds before thee, Nor some far-reaching scheme! Think not of beauty lingering, But while thou'rt sleeping-dream! Patty Murphy, '35, HOLLYHOCKS I'm a most cosmopolitan flower, I require neither trellis nor bower, But grow in a lovely garden the same As I grow in Mrs. O Leary's lane. I stand up proud, and straight, and tall, At garden gate or against the wall. High on my stem little blossoms grow Like dainty bonnets in a milliner's row. Lydia Osborn, '35. 46 STEELE SPOTLIGHT AN HONEST BETRAYAL Grey dawn silently folded her wrap of sil- very mist about her and slowly tiptoed away from the Indian village. The first rays of the morning sun rested gently upon the teardrops dawn had left behind, and transformed them into a sea of twinkling mirrors. The nodding wildflowers along the path which led into the camp awakened, and sleepily tendered their fragrance to the fresh, crisp air. From within the woods the melodious clarion of the feath- ered flock rang clearly out. It was morning! The flap of a tepee was warily moved aside, and an Indian maiden slipped quietly out. Without casting a glance about the camp, she hastened up the mountain trail. She swung along the trail with swift, firm steps, the char- acteristic of the race. With the grace of a willow reed, her lithe figure swayed in rhyth- mical motion as she moved forward. The young girl had raven locks, which were bound tightly at the nape of her neck. Sorrow dwelt in the dark depths of her eyes, and sadness caused her lips to droop. Even the beauty of the new day could not dispel the tribulation in her heart. The maiden steadily ascended the mountain upon whose summit the sun's pink rays were dispersed. When she had achieved the crown, she stood motionless, gazing at the little town so comfortably nestled at the foot of the opposite mountain. Her eyes flamed with passion as she mentally pictured its fu- ture. The anger that surged within the slim form was released by the constant clenching and unclenching of her hands. The town had previously sheltered her, bestowed kindnesses upon her, had been a place of joy and great delight to her. Within its circle she had made many friends who were dear to her. They were her friends and would remain her friends! This she vowed. The young girl determinedly turned herself about and descended the slope up whence she had come. The blazing sun sank lower and lower be- hind the dark ridge of trees. The stately elms were quiet in sleep. Below, the looping river glided calmly by, its surface as smooth as mar- ble and as shimmering as glass. The stars winked mischievously at the deer that were prancing lightly to the water's edge to drink. The horizon was bathed in a ghostly white, the herald of the moon. With majestic splendor the midnight-orb was drawn into the heavens to attend her nocturnal vigilance. She dissem- inated her cool, pale radiance upon the black waters in a broad, gleaming path. A vague shape broke into the stream of light like a shadow. It took the shape of a canoe with a stalwart Indian at its stern. His copper skin glowed as he swayed to and fro keeping time to his stroke. After his passage across the patch of light on the river, many others swiftly followed him, their red, dull color shining un- der the moon's illumination. Thus the tribe was transported across the distance that lay between the camp and the town. Noiselessly, the war-painted savages disembarked and pad- ded through the forest with a cat-like tread. They approached the village and prepared to perpetrate their malicious crime. Before their war-cry could be given utterance, a volley of shots showered upon them. In dumbfounded amazement they took refuge in the forest and made ready to defend themselves. The town's inhabitants fired with amazing accuracy and lasting bravery. The outsmarted red men could not withstand the steady hail of bullets, and retreated to the edge of the water after but a few hours' fighting. They pushed their ca- noes into the river and wound their return back to camp. The Indian squaws crouched around the camp fire anxiously awaiting the return of their braves. They sat without speaking, each lost in her own thoughts and hopes. A slender maiden approached out of the darkness in front of a near-by tepee and took her place close to the blaze. A smile clung to her lips, and her eyes filled with happiness and contentment. She knew well enough what her fate would be if they discovered her treason. Ah, she did not care! Her mission had been fulfilledg her friends were saved, she had kept' her oath. The maiden's eyes dwelt peacefully upon the flame and rested there in great calm. Gladys Jache, '35. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 47 ON GUM CHEWING Crunch, Crunch, Crunch, follow the beat of the gum chewers of today. Get in step with the pound, pound, pound of the jaws of the future citizens of tomorrow. This fad has had the na- tion in its clutches since grandpa wore knee- breeches. Get your face into action, improve its elastic qualities. Why, everyone from the newsboy to the Broadway socialite chews. The office girl, as she hides behind the covers of a "too-thrilling" detective story, is viciously chewing her favorite brand. As the climax comes to a close, so does the girl's mouth open and close with excitement. Perhaps we had better look into the subject and find out just what this gum is made of. From all appearances, it is made from the ex- tract of India rubber trees with a dash of arti- ficial flavor. The ardent defenders of this oc- cupation would probably shout "No" when told it is made from rubber, but judging from the movement of the mouth, what other substance could so elastically stretch? It adds to the dis- torting of anyoneys face, and yet it is quieting in a state of nervous tension, for example, when one is at a wrestling match. As one wrestler gets the strangle-hold on the other, three-fourths of the lookers-on chew the very life from their gum. We could describe this process of gum chew- ing by calling it a face exerciser. We shall now start at the beginning of the day's work. The first step is to acquire a package of this condensed rubber. Open it nervously as if you can hardly wait to taste its tempting flavor, stuff a stick or two into the mouth, shake well, then proceed to chew like mad with the corners of the mouth extending out to the ears at every luscious chew. An ardent gum chewer is like the picture of a contented cow chewing her cud. One can usually tell whether a person enjoys his gum by the continual rise and fall of his eye- brows. If ever you need a facial rejuvenator, try "Spearnut," the gum with a thousand chews. If this doesn't arch your eyebrows, lengthen the line of your mouth, and make your ears stand out, return the wrapper and you will receive a pamphlet entitled "How to be Beautiful in Ten Easy Lessons." Gum is posi- tively guaranteed to give you the disposition of a child, make you gnash your teeth, and deepen any wrinkle in your countenance. If at once you don't succeed in acquiring the above-named-CHEW AND CHEW AGAIN! Miriam Ritchie, '35, SPRING IN THE GARDEN It is evening in the garden, and the air is cool and moist. The low, green hills roll gently away and fade softly into nothingness where the few scattered wisps of gray mist lie here and there, low on the far horizon. In the mot- tled sky above, a few dim clouds float slowly along, and a tiny bird far up in the heavens, soars in never-ending spirals from one to an- other. Silhouetted against the sky, the Japan- ese plum tree contrasts the mottled oneness with dark splashes of red bronze fan-leaves blown to the misty breeze, and low about its rugged trunk the shiny dark myrtle prepares to close its waxen blue blossoms for the night. Behind the green moss carpet, a light mist of golden buttercups hangs gently near, while farther down the rocky slope the lacy wood- ferns keep silent companionship with the white spring-beauties. The violets beside them nod drowsily, as they nestle in their broad, shady leaves, and drooping beside them the graceful bleeding-hearts sway. Far down the garden path the rows of deli- cate hyacinths stand silent sentinel with the velvet pink tulips, and their perfume sweetly pervades the still night air. The abundant new ivy on the wall behind them soothes with soft, silent fingers the gray and rugged bareness- "Listen! the mighty Being is awake, And doth with his eternal motion make A sound like thunder-everlastinglyf' Dorothy Garber, '35. e T isp 48 STEELE SPOTLIGHT MOONLIGHT When evening shadows lengthen and the sun has gone to bed, When the night wind softly whispers in the tree tops overhead, The moon in all her glory peeps atop the dis- tant hill And sends a soft, caressing beam to valley, lake, and rill. The bright smooth surface of the lake reflects the limpid light, And glows with such a brilliant sheen it shames the sinister night. It drives the skulking phantoms back into the forest's gloom Where hooting owl and noiseless bat sweep through the leafy tomb. A waxen lotus lily floats serenely on the swell In a pool of silvery moon-glow, as in a magic spell. The firefly with its lantern goes flickering through the reeds, Now off, now on, its tiny lamp as overhead it speeds. 'Tis dusk, the errant cricketls chirping softly from the pond, A misty curtain falls upon the shrubs and feathery fronds. Leaves festooned with dew-drops gleam like diamonds in moonlight That now pervades o'er all the quiet peaceful- ness of night. Bruce Witwer, '35. RAIN Is there anything more peaceful Than to listen to the rain, And to think of freshened Howers And of water-silvered grain? Is there anything more lovely Than to gaze at Spring's domain, And to see the wild drops pelting That the wind cannot restrain? Patty Murphy, '35. SOLITUDE The twilight shadows gather On hillside and on lea. The world is wrapped in silence, The stars shine through the tree. Hushed sleep will steal upon us, All through the long, dark night, Until the sun in splendor Dawns on our waking sight. Betty Jane Frank, '35, OWNING A GARDEN He who owns a garden, However small it be, Whose hands with love have cherished Flower or bush or tree, He who watches patiently The growth from nurtured sod, Who thrills at newly-opened bloom- Is very close to God. Mary Wirsching, '35. SUMMER DAY The velvet red of roses Still glistening in the dew, The pink of early morning clouds When the sun comes peeping through. The scarlet red of poppies Beneath a flaming sun, And the deepening red of tulips When the sultry day is done. When the blood-red sun has sunk Beneath the mountains far away, And the cool, sweet air of evening Covers earth and air and bay, Then the pink mist of the twilight Steals up softly o'er the hill, All is silent, peaceful, waiting, And the mighty earth is still. Dorothy Garber, '35 STEELE SPOTLIGHT 49 SOME PLACES I SHOULD LIKE TO SEE "Places I should like to see," is one of my favorite subjects to talk, plan, and dream about. Perhaps it is because I have never traveled ex- tensively. There are so many beautiful and in- teresting places in the world, and I should like to go to every nook and corner. I think that my first choice of places to see is England. This old, romantic country has always appealed to me. I have read many books with England as the setting, and each time I read a different one, I am filled with an overwhelming longing to be on a ship headed for this country of song and story. I want to see the palaces, Westminster Abbey, Canterbury Cathedral, Temple Bar, the Tower of London, and London Bridge. I should like to see the birthplace of famous men and women. I want to be in London on a foggy night, and in Devonshire in the spring. I want to see the changing of the guard, the Prince of Wales, and the Lord Mayor of Lon- don. But, when cold weather arrives, I want to be off to a warmer climate. In the winter, I should like to go to Italy. Italy -the land of sunshine, music, and beautiful women! I want to spend a month in a charming villa on the Mediterranean, with blue skies meet- ing the blue sea, and flowers and fruit every- where. Rome, with its cathedrals, museums, and ruins, is a city I cannot afford to miss. I Want to go to Venice, the city of golden dreams and romance. I should like to go to India next, as it has al- ways seemed so mysterious to me. I want to see the magnificent Taj Mahal and all of the other temples. Now, to return to the best place of all-our own United States. California is my favorite spot, and here are more sunshine and flowers. I can conceive of nothing more beautiful and breath-taking than the view of a snow-capped mountain seen from a distance of many miles. Boston, the aristocrat of cities, New York, the city of many people and nationalities, Florida, the land of blue ocean and waving palms, Ala- bama, the state of fried chicken and corn bread- these are merely a few of my dreamed-of places to see. Surely, some day I shall achieve this, my most beloved dream. If I do not, I feel as if I shall never be satisfied with a humdrum life, I shall have missed something truly worth while and beautiful. Virginia Rogee, '35. "A THREAD OF ENGLISH ROAD" By Charles S. Brooks "A Thread of English Road," by Charles S. Brooks, is a narrative of a cycling trip through southern England. The author takes the reader through Guildford, Hindland, Yarmouth, Strat- ford, Salisbury, Bath, and many another old village and town. He gives descriptions of a monastery, old castles, inns, and laborers' cot- tages. There is no scandal, no exciting inci- dent, or adventure, not even an outstanding plot. It is just the mild, quiet life of an English countryside. Brooks gives delightful descriptions of many strange and eccentric characters, including that of the dried-up chemist, the Widow Winter, who was famous for her Mbouncing feather mattress", the hostess of the George, 'fa sour woman who dripped a pickled answer to a question", and the landlady who loved to drink wine and sing late into the night. We find a lovely description of an old inn in London. In the sitting room were chairs, very huge and uncomfortable, with such deep bot- toms that one's feet stuck out stiffly in front like a child's. There were fifteen mirrors in the one room, of so many sizes and shapes that "one had but to look in a mirror to appear fat or thin as he desired." The huge fireplace served only as an ornament, as it gave about as much comfort as a candle." Mr. Brooks is an ideal writer of travel lore, as he can bring vividly before your eyes the picture of the scene he describes. He can write about little incidents that happen in every-day life and make them very amusing. I recom- mend the book to anyone wishing to read a mildly venturesome tale. Dorothy Detrick, '35. Nga-Awgav 50 STEELE SPOTLIGHT A CALENDAR OF THE SEASON Summer: The grass grew brown under the unremitting glare of the midwestern sun. Beneath the lilac in front of the brick house a dog lay panting. At the screened door a young man was wildly talking to a woman whose hands were twisting with nervousness. The young man looked with anguish at the car which, with a long ribbon of skid marks behind it, was stopped abruptly in the middle of the street. Upstairs, the shades were up to the top of the windows in spite of the heat. A man, his black bag on the table beside him, was bending over the bed. The shadows of the leaves hung motionless. A bare- legged child, tugging past on a tricycle, almost collided with a girl in white. Autumn: Great, golden leaves spiraled slowly to the ground. The pungent air and a heap of ashes told of a recent bon-fire. A Woman with a small bowl of something steaming was hurry- ing toward the brick house. Upstairs there were flowers at the window, and on the table a book and a pitcher of water. The young man was gone, but the woman with the nervous hands was turning a motionless face to the man of the black bag. The hazy day softened the care on her face and the work on her hands. A boy walked past carrying a bushel of apples. There was the cackle of blackbirds. Winter: The world shimmered and sparkled and crackled under a glaze of ice. A snowflake occasionally skidded to rest. The children shouted as they slid up and down the street. Upstairs in the brick house a slight body was pillowed in a chair by the window. A small boyish face stared wistfully down. A new crutch leaned against the chair. The air was frozen crystal clear. A horse slipped and awk- wardly struggled to arise. Spring: The new tender greenness was a ceaseless wonder. A wren expressed the joyousness in his song. Down the steps of the brick house came three people. The man of the black bag carried a crutch as if it were a now-useless article. The face of the once unhappy woman was lighted with joy. Between them, slowly but alone, walked a small boy. A row of syrin- gas cascaded purity. Violets hid in the lawn. Spring had brought the end of winter and darkness. Jean Hull, '35, WHEAT IN THE WIND To me, the sight of wheat blown by the wind is the most refreshing of rural scenes. In spring, the relentless, boisterous Aeolus transforms the vast field of green into a wild, billowing sea. One sees, not a field of wheat, but a wide ex- panse of sea, with its broad, rolling waves of green. Then comes summer, with its wealth of sun- shine, to transform the field into a blanket woven of golden threads. The mild breeze causes, here and there, a slight movement such as might be caused by someone,s walking lightly across it. This sight seems to indicate the belief of our ancestors that this was made by the tread of heavenly beings on the fields. How fine it is to retain this idea, in that the Almighty is everywhere, if we have eyes to see. My mind then turns to the drama in which this very field takes part. Wheat is the essential food, the world over, thus, more land is devoted to its cultivation. If this basic food were sud- denly removed, a tragedy would follow, much greater than if all other foods were removed, leaving only wheat. For years, scientists of every agricultural nation have sought to avoid such a calamity. The lives and wealth of many men have been spent in efforts to protect this valuable food from rust and other plagues. One ordinarily does not think of these things, but the sight of acre after acre of wheat arouses wonder in his mind. Now, I am enchanted by the field's soothing, swaying motion. The gentle whispering of each slender shoot blends to produce a fantastic, rus- tling sound. This encourages my imagination, and I see Wheat, the powerful queen of the world, and hear the rustling of her lovely, golden gown. Marjorie Kline, '35. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 51 "A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER" Thus spoke Keats, and perhaps it was a rare, old Grecian urn that prompted him to say this. However, there are many beautiful things which are a joy and blessing to humanity. Dayton is the proud possessor of a very beauti- ful piece of architecture which will be a joy forever, namely, the magnificent Art Institute. Such a building, because of its beauty and the many things for which it stands-culture, edu- cation, spiritual upbuilding, and a real ap- preciation of all that is beautiful-will forever be a genuine source of joy' to the people who are proud to acknowledge it. Another thing comes into my mind as I think about the things which have been a joy to some one. This is a lovely, hand-woven bedspread made by my grandmother when she lived in her native home. It is an exquisite piece of work- manship, with vivid coloring, and intricate, ,quaint design. The material is extraordinarily strong and durable, and promises to wear for a long time. My grandmother made it when a young girl, and it took months of toil and pa- tience to weave the spread on an old-fashioned loom. I can picture her sitting at the loom and watching the threads, one by one, flying into their places. It became beautiful because her heart and soul were in the making of it, and she must have realized that its bright, cheerful de- sign and strong, sturdy texture would gladden the hearts of all who saw or used it. She used it in her home, and when my mother came to America, she brought it with her. We still have it, and it is just as pretty and serviceable as when it was completed. The warm tones of red and orange radiate warmth, and the multi-colored fringe attracts and pleases the eye. Thus, though a very commonplace article, the bedspread has been a joy and comfort to all concerned. And how many more things could I enumer- ate between the superb, majestic edifice and the quaint, humble bedspread which are a joy for- ever? No matter how insignificant a thing may be, if its existence makes life fuller and happier, it will continue to be "the thing of joy that is a joy forever." Christ Dale, '35. A SYMPHONY IN COLORS Looking out my window one morning at the first stir of dawn, I beheld three blue bridges spanning soft blue waters. The blue of the sky was sleepy, as if it were not yet awake to its usual bright alertness in spring. The blue rib- bon hemming the opposite side of the Miami was in reality Sunrise Avenue. The pendant hanging from its dip was a flashy billboard. All was a silent blue-the blue was a priest waiting for the errant sun. As the glare of day followed the dawn, idle fishermen straggled to the water's edge. Curi- ous as to whether they really made any catches, I made them a closer visit. Their poles were forced firmly in the ground, and their lines held tiny bells to inform them of their luck. Imagine the poor Hsh ffor there really were some therej unknowingly ringing their death knell! To lose this gruesome thought, I began an inspection of the shore. To my surprise, I found a lovely patch of purple violets hidden beneath green leaves close to the water's edge. They seemed to be thirsty, for their faces were turned toward the water. As I walked on, I came across several beautiful shells and a number of unique fossils. How many years ago had those patterns been formed? The banks of the river were green with a young grass, the buds on the trees were green and bursting, a green cloud floated in the water. As the sun sank, a rosy hue covered the scene. The river was a bed of rainbows. The sky was a careless painter's palette. Nature was dressed for an evening ball. Soon the moon rose, and the stars came out. All was black, studded with silver. The lights of cars flashed across the now unseen bridges. They threw silver streaks across the black water. The silver of the heavens was mirrored below, while the billboard blazed with a silver light. The moon sifted silver through the air, and the river slept with a drowsy murmur. Margaret Sullenbarger, '35, awww imvififfl 52 STEELE SPOTLIGHT OUR LITTLE SYMPHONY It was one of those ecstatic spring evenings when the paper says "fair and warmer." We were enjoying a left-over lunch in the back yard beneath a heaven of peach and plum blos- soms. The sky had been tipping its sprinkling can on the small tufts of green leaflets poking out of their twigs, and all seemed fresh and calm. A little wren with his chest puffed out was whistling away as though it were a matter of life or death that he outdo all his neighbors. We had been watching eagerly for a week, hoping he and his pert little mate would build in one of the dozen or so tiny bird houses we had scatterd about for them. Now and then the full, gurgling rain song of the stolid robin greeted our ears, with the lucid call of the card- inal ringing in close behind. We were hoping in vain that the tufted redbird would sing from a nest in our honeysuckle vine. But this thought faded as the undertone of a dove's mellow cooing softly asserted itself in the med- ley. How often we had watched that dove feeding not more than three feet from our breakfast table, and how amusing were its re- lations with the robin. Then, almost as a cymbal crash, the peaceful atmosphere was shattered to bits by the rude staccato scolding of two great grey squirrels arguing over a kernel of corn. Those squirrels again! Why couldn't they stay away and stop scaring the birds? Our lovely little symphony spoiled again! It wasn't their corn anyway. It had been put there for our songsters, and the thieving squirrels had stolen it before the birds had a chance. One of our neighbors has a large martin house which is occupied by these squirrels. "His squirrels," we called them, be- cause he fed them and watched them. Then why didn't he keep his old squirrels at home? After such a disturbance there was nothing for us to do but clear the remnants of our meal away and go into the house, thoroughly dis- gusted with squirrels in general, That was two long weeks ago. Now if anyone should ask me if I dislike squirrels, I would look at him in amazement, for a new little mem- ber has been added to our household in the form of a baby red squirrel. He is the cutest little ball of fur and eyes that ever drank from a medicine dropper. I came upon him by chance one day whenl visited a friend of mine. My friend had been mushrooming in a near-by woods and had returned with this little handful of squirrel. Naturally, knowing that squirrels eat nuts, he made the bad mistake of feeding it a handful of roasted peanuts and rolled oats. Why, it was the same as feeding a week-old baby on hot-dogs and mustard! He hadn't even offered it a drop of milk, which probably was about the only thing it had had before it had been caught. The poor thing was getting sicker every minute thatlwatched. I begged my friend to let me take it home and care for it properly. This took little persuasion, so now I have the enjoyable task of feeding a little red squirrel out of a medicine dropper every two hours for the next two weeks. He is just like a baby: his ailments, his emotions, his playful scolding, his big, black questioning eyes. He takes his daily exercise on my shoulder and chatters to me like a friend indeed. My neighbor and I have something in common now. We can walk in the evenings of spring when the paper says "fair and warmer," enjoying both birds and squirrels and appreciating fully the fine parts each play in our little symphony. Eugene DuVal, '35. NIGHT IN CAMP Cries of birds from the tree, An owl, A dove, The chattering of chipmunks and humming of bees Descend from above. The soft wind whispers and sighs Soothing, And low, The trees sway and bend, chirps of katydids riseg There's a firefly's glow. It's night, the sly moon-man is Winking, He stares, Then dims, rain patters softly, breezes fan usg We have no cares. Ann Reeves, '35, STEELE SPOTLIGHT 53 "THE BOOK SHOP" The sign was old and so faded that the words were barely visible. Many times I had passed down that street and never seen it. But today as I dreamed along, by chance I looked up and saw the dusty words, "Book Shop," upon its cracked and weatherworn surface. It was a dark little shop and quite uninviting from without, so I passed it by, but suddenly there came to my mind the picture of Dickenis immortal "Old Curiosity Shop." In quick suc- cession I saw its darkened door, its musty, in- triguing interior and lovely 'KLittle Nell.', "Per- haps I shall find a curiosity shop of my own," I thought, and back I went. A bell tinkled pleasantly as I opened the door, and I crossed the threshold into a long and narrow room. Nothing seemed unusual. There were the lat- est modern novels with their garish colored covers. But turning to the shelves along the wall, I noticed that the books were mostly second-hand and catalogued unusually. They were arranged on their shelves according to their place in history. Quickly I hurried to the last shelf and with gentle hands took from its place a copy of the oldest book in the world. It was the "Vedas', of the "Brahmans." I seemed to smell the subtle odor of musk as I opened its yellow pages. The mystic philosophy of the East three thousand years old, how insignificant it made me feel. There were five volumes of the "Wisdom of Confuciusf' In China, every man knows the maxims of Confucius by heart. There, too, was the bible of the Mohammedans, "The Koran." There is an enchantment in the call of the East. Kipling felt it when he wrote: "By the old Moulmein Pagoda, looking east- ward to the sea, Come you back, you British soldier, Come you back to Mandalay." Next there was our Hebrew Bible and the Greek Homer's "Illiad" and "Odyssey." "Don Quixote" by Cervantes perched within reach, and I gave the playful old gentleman within it an imaginary wink. All of the volumes of Shakespeare followed: "Othello," 'fKing Lear." Choosing "Midsummer Night's Dream," I opened it at random and read: "Over hill, over dale, Through brush, through brierg Over park, over pale, Through land, through fire, I do wander everywhere Swifter than the moon's spherefy With a short verse I was again snared under the magic hand of the Elizabethan. A chapter of 'fPepys' Diary" brought me into the best of humor. There was Jane Aus- ten's realistic "Pride and Prejudicef, I reached for the haunting verses of the Scottish poet, Burns. "My love is like a red, red rose." His blissful poetry lulls one into a land of peace and beauty. It was very inappropriate, I'm sure, to place the sage and cynical Voltaire's f'Candide" so close. But that great Frenchman, too, was fa- mous in quite a different manner. How his satirical wit, irony, and impish glee could make the French aristocrats wince! Here was Scot- land again immortalized in "The Waverley Novels" and "The Lady of the Lake" by Scott. There, with joy, I spied those romantic, dash- ing fellows, "The Three Musketeers" and the rightful avenger, "The Count of Monte Cristo,', written by Dumas, who must have been a man's man, Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables," with its man of destiny, "Jean Valjean," whose tragic history remains in the mind long after the read- ing, The shopkeeper devoted a whole shelf to Dickens, and, just above it on the wall, was a picture of Mr. Pickwick, telescope, great coat, and all. "Pickwick Papersw stood beneath "Oliver Twist," UMartin Chuzzlewitn and many more were there. I saw George Eliot's poor heroine, Hetty Sorrel, shake her head sadly from her book of K'Adam Bede." Horrors of horrors! there were Poe's chilling, fantastic tales, "The Murders in the Rue Morguen and "The Cask of Amontilladof, Now came our modern, worthwhile authors: Sinclair Lewis, famous for 'fMain Streetng H. G. Wells, who wrote 'LAnn Veronicang Thomas Hardy, author of "Tess of the D'Uber- vi1les," and Kipling's throbbing songs of the 54 STEELE SPOTLIGHT East. There was his "Jungle Book," and I re- membered the "Monkey People." An old clock chimed somewhere. I counted five. I had spent three hours in lands from East to West. Reluctantly I tore myself away and marched back across the threshold of that musty little shop. Not even the blinding sun- light could drive away my renewed acquaint- ance with my beloved book friends. Dorothy Wicke, ,35. YOUNG BROTHERS It is refreshing and entertaining to read these stories of a devoted brother and sister that one so frequently finds. I don't doubt that there are a few rare instances where such brothers may be found, but I think it would be easier to find ones like mine, who is not perfect. My pugilistic career started on February 12, 1919, and I've been in training ever since. I'm told that when my brother was born Qand he's no Lincoln, in spite of the datej, I refused to look at him. I was a smart child even then. My brother's age doesn't at all suit me. If he were older, he wouldnlt be any bother. At least not as much. If he were younger, I could order him around. But being just a year and a half my junior, he is unmanageable. I don't mean to say that I'd rather not have a brother. Indeed, I wouldn't think of doing Without him more than 363 days out of each year, the other two days being my birthday and Christmas. Nor do I want you to get the impression that we quarrel all the time. In front of all, except relatives and close friends, we are a model brother and sister. I rather think young brothers are part of a girl's education. Or perhaps I should say, "a young brother," for one is enough! A brother is your severest critic. He doesn't like anything you wear, anything you cook, or any- thing you do. He's quite willing to tell you the things "even your best friend won't tell you." Unless caught off guard, he keeps a perfectly straight face when you tell a joke. He has a tantalizing habit of reading the whole news- paper over three or four times if he knows you want it. And he seems uncannily able to read into your soul and find your innermost secrets, about which to tease you. There are times when my brother is feeling magnanimous, and then I rather like him. On the other hand, there are times when I think I could do without him even the other two days. The time he tore up my picture of Nelson Eddy, for example. A most provoking thing is that heill grin and wisecrack, so that even if you're peeved at him, you have to laugh, and of course that spoils everything. But a brother is rather good for you. You learn to "take it," you learn patience, immunity to teasing, and self-sacrifice. The latter comes after years of his airily borrowing anything of yours that meets his needs. But a brother, even mine, is rather nice. Now I'm feeling mag- nanimousg I'm going away to college next year and won't see so much of him! Who wants him perfect, anyway? Anne Reeves, '35, ODD SIGNS We sat around the fireplace at the old home- stead, while old Mammy Mary popped corn for us over the coals. The shooting flames, dying down, again blazing brightly, and mak- ing grotesque shadows come and go, turned her homely old face into almost a solemn mask. All at once it seemed a happy thought had come to her, and with a wide smile she said, "This sure reminds me of a sign I saw at a fill- ing station down in old Kentucky, which in- vited tourists to Eat Gas and Popfl After the merry laughter died down, the Minister suggested that we all tell of some odd sign we had seen, and he started in with the following: "While on a visit in the slums of London, I chanced to see a Mission with this sign over the door, 'Admission 25c, For God's Sake, For Humanity's Sake, For Education's Sake, Children Free.' " Uncle Ned, coming in with more wood for the fire place, joined in the hearty laughter caused by the Minister's story and said, 'ithatls like Deacon Smith's sign down by the black- smith's shop, 'White Washing Did In All Col- ors.' " Mr. Fulton, our congressman, who was spend- ing the evening with us, told of a backwoods STEELE SPOTLIGHT 55 candidate for Justice of Peace, who had heard that printer's ink would spell success and de- cided to have signs printed as part of his cam- paign. After considerable discussion between the printer and himself, he decided on the fol- lowing sign: "Vote for John A Runckel for Justice of Peace, Now lncumberedf' A neighbor then told of a sign he had seen while traveling through the mountains, 'fMoun- tain View Farm, Poultry of All Kind, Live or Dressed, Broilers, Roasters, Fowl and Eggs for Hatching Collie Pupsf' When he reached his destination, Tannersville, New York, he saw in the window of a grocery store, "Fresh Eggs From Our Own Henry." Mr. Coleman, our friend from Denver, then related that over a window of a cabinet shop in his town appears the following, "Antiques Made While You Wait." Old Uncle Ben, a noted traveler, told of a sign he saw in the crest of a steep hill in Maine: K'Hi1l-Dangerous-Go into Second Gear." A few feet farther on he came to a second and more startling caution, f'Prepare To Meet Thy God." Jim Collins, a cousin, from one of the river towns in Southern Indiana, told of several short, but odd signs he had seen recently, while on one of his trips. They were as follows: "Shoes Shined Inside," and "We Stand Behind Every Bed We Sell." Dick Calhoun, an old friend from North Carolina, who had been sitting in one corner laughing at the other fellows' stories sudden- ly piped up with "Now let me tell of some of the odd signs I have seen. Just outside of Washington on a negro cabin I saw the follow- ing sign: 'Guttering and Spouting Done Here.' In another town, a woman by the name of Esther Burns Lunch had a sign like this in front of her lunch room, 'Esther Burns Lunch'." The evening passed quickly, and, as the fire died away, each man remarked that he had spent a very pleasant evening and had had a good laugh, thanks to Mammy Mary for re- membering an Odd Sign. David Gaylord, '35 THE AUDITORIUM DEBATE--1935 On the 7th of May, 1935, the juniors and sen- iors, assembled in the auditorium, enjoyed a debate Worthy of the name of Steele High School. Debates have come, and debates have gone, but the exhibition of friendly rivalry, poise, and commanding argument displayed by the Auditorium Debating Team of 1935 will remain in the memories of all who heard the speakers. The question was, Resolved, That the Na- tions should agree to prevent the international shipment of arms and munitions. Try-outs for the debate were held April 12th. Over thirty contestants participated in the elimination before three judges. The team was chosen, and those selected began immedi- ate and strenuous work, under the direction of Miss Mary Alice Hunter. The curtain arose on a confident and well trained group. The affirmative speakers were Patty Murphy, Dorothy McCrabb, and Charles Harbottle, with Milton Margolis as alternate. The speakers for the negative were Catherine Lohman, Leonard Levy, and Philip Stein, with Katherine Boose as alternate. It was a thrilling moment when Mr. Siegler, the "Moderator," gave the call to order and instructed the time keepers, Mr. Eastman and Mr. Mattis. The audience was requested not to applaud until the final decision had been given. At the end of the debate, the three decisions were delivered to the moderator. He read the first decision, it was for the negative. He read the second, the vote was cast for the aflirma- tive. The audience held its breath. Very slow- ly he announced, 'KThe third vote is for the negative." The audience stormed with ap- plause as the curtain fell. The following speakers were selected from the debating team for commencement: Cather- ine Lohman, Charles Harbottle, and Philip Stein. Each student who heard this debate felt it an honor to be a part of Steele High School. 55 S TEIEIAE SI'0'FLI GliT QQWE555 HEQEMQHWMQMMQQWW555WEMMHQQQEEQHMQQHMQ555555539 it fr? f Z-it Q ' - ii? 52 SG at ii? ft 3 ' it gg sk it 62 as Q 5? as Q 232 fi: Q 5?

She is a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. She has also been admitted to Mortar Board-the highest honorary society. As a result of his high scholastic attainment at the University of Pennsylvania, Robert E. Levy has been placed on that schoo1's terminal honor roll. John Vance, who graduated from Steele in 1922, is now a professor at Yale university in the chemistry department. A graduate of Yale, he later received his Ph.D. degree from the school after having studied in Europe. He re- cently attended the convention of the National Society of Chemical Engineers held in New York City. Franklin Shively, '31, has been commended on his good work at Northwestern university. This is his first year in the Medical School of Northwestern. John Kany, '33, has received the distinction of being pronounced the best soldier for both his freshman and sophomore years at Purdue University. Marion Hay, '32, who is a student in the en- gineering school at the University of Dayton, was declared winner of the S30 first prize in the Dr. R. G. Reilly oratorical contest at the university recently. His topic was 'fThe Greater Need." Other winners in the contest were also members of the Steele graduating class of 1931. The second prize of S20 was won by Todd Mumma, a commerce student, who spoke on "The Folly of Nationalism." The third prize of S10 was received by Thomas Haacke, an arts student, who orated on "The Party System." Both Todd and Thomas will graduate from the university this year. Robert Coleman, '33, has received orders to report July 1 at the United States Military Academy, West Point, N. Y., to become a mem- ber of the incoming class. Robert Curry, '29, was one of the five grad- uating members of the Ohio State university's student court to be presented with the annual "gavel" award. Byron Talmage, '32, was named production manager in the recent election of officers of Strollers Dramatic society, an organization devoted to the production of stage plays at Ohio State university. Lieut. Thomas J. Sands, who graduated from Steele in 1925, recently took the national cham- pionship in dueling swords. After graduating from West point with the class of 1929, he re- turned to that school to receive a professor- ship in French. He still holds that post today and has fencing for a hobby. He is generally believed to be sufficiently qualified to enter the German Olympics in 1936. Betty Kling, who graduated in '34, has re- cently been added to the staff of station WHIO. Also members of the staff are Janice Fryer and Alice Martz, who graduated in '32, and Jane Bishir, of the class of 1931. Harmon Darrow, '31, was recently elected recording secretary of the Denison chapter of Phi Gamma Delta. He will be a senior at the university next year. Robert Brundige, '31, was elected president of the senior class of Denison university for the coming year at the election held at the uni- versity recently. Hubert Metzger, who graduated from Steele in 1932, will graduate from Miami university this June, having completed his course in three years. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 57 '5 25 THE ANIMAL PLAGUES OF AUSTRALIA Australia has lately become famous because of its many so-called "animal plaguesn which in many cases are almost uncontrollable ex- cept by the exercise of extreme measures. It seems that Nature takes a delight in upsetting all of the natural balances which exist on that small continental island. Now, as before, Na- ture is on a rampage, for the small, green par- rots which usually unobtrusively inhabit the Australian bush, have multiplied until they constitute an actual threat. The birds are re- ported to be so numerous that a flock alighting on a roof sounds like a hailstorm and the roof appears to be painted green. "The sudden appearance of the parrots in such great numbers is a striking example of Nature's intricate interconnectionsf, says a bul- letin-from the Washington, D. C. headquarters of the National Geographic Society. "Biolo- gists attribute the increase to a preceding plague of grasshoppers, which inspired the par- rot parents to raise more offspring than usual. It is probable that when the parrots have eaten the excess insects, they will run out of food and decrease in numbers, and Nature will re- cover her equilibriumfi , ,. 1 - Australia has also had its share of other types of pests. Plagues of rats and mice recur at intervals. Introduced snails, sparrows, and starlings multiply into scourges that alarm farmers and ranchmen. Sheep raisers in cer- tain districts keep a sharp lookout for foxes and dingoes fwild dogsj which abound menace the sheep industry. But Australia's most famous, and for years her most sinister animal pest, was the innocent- looking rabbit! Sinister, because in five years, it has been estimated that the descendants of a single pair may reach several millions. Since seven rabbits consume as much grass as one sheep, rabbits, unmolested, might eat up all the grass in Australia. Rabbits were first introduced in that coun- try to provide sport, but by 1859 the sport turned into grim warfare as ranchmen saw their pastures alive with waggling long ears. Men were employed to do nothing but kill rab- bits. Some killed an average of four hundred a day. The equivalent of millions of dollars was spent on rabbit-proof fences of wire net- ting, set four inches into the ground, three feet high, and stretching for miles. One of these rabbit fences runs for a thousand miles, from Condon to Hopetown. Chiefly as the result of fencing, poisoning, and paying high bounties, the rabbit pest is now pretty well under con- trol. But wouldn't the Australian farmers like to meet that first "Sportsman" and tell him what they think of his bright idea! Bruce Witwer, '35, LORD KELVIN Sir William Thomson, better known as Lord Kelvin, was one of the greatest mathematicians and physicists of recent times. He was born in Belfast in 1824 and was the son of James Thomson, professor of mathematics in Glasgow University. As a child he showed great prom- ise and entered Glasgow University at the age of thirteen. He then went to Cambridge, where he grad- uated second in scholastic honors at the age of twenty-one. The following year he was ap- pointed professor of natural philosophy at the University of Glasgow. He also became editor 58 STEELE SPOTLIGHT of the Cambridge and Dublin Mathematical Journal. During the retention of his professorship, he contributed many papers on the mathemat- ical theory of electricity. In one treatise he proved that the discharge of a condenser is oscillatory. In this field, also, are his numer- ous inventions for electrical research. His ex- tensive study of the effect of temperature on gas volumes resulted in the discovery of the Kelvin or absolute scale of temperature. Although he also made contributions to the knowledge of heat and magnetism, his name is most often associated with submarine telegra- phy. On the completion of the Atlantic cable in 1866, he was knighted and given other hon- ors. He was given the presidency of the Brit- ish Association at its Edinburgh meeting in 18715 he was also a Fellow ofthe Royal Society. The title of Baron Kelvin was conferred on him in 1892. In 1907, he died at Glasgow. Francis Smith, '35. DID YOU KNOW THAT- Dew does not fall, but condenses from the surrounding atmosphere? Whales are in the same animal division as human beings? A century plant does not bloom once in every hundred years but once in about every fifteen years? All insects have six legs? A heavy body and a light body will fall equally fast? The orbits of the planets are ellipses with the sun at one of the foci? Spiders are not insects? Oysters need a small percentage of copper in solution with the water in which they live? Some stars move with a speed of 4,800 miles a second? A meteor weighing a few pounds has the same amount of kinetic energy as an express train going 70 miles an hour? There is a new hydrogen with an atomic weight of three? Two pendulum of the same length will swing in the same length of time although the weights of the bobs differ? The largest flower is three feet in diameter and is parasitic? The ancient royal purple was extracted from shellfish found near the shores of Tyre? Dogs perspire through their tongues? Osmium, a rare metal, is 1.98 times as dense as lead? Radium is not the only radioactive element? The earth is nearer the sun when it is winter in this hemisphere than when it is summer? ELECTRONICS In a recent exhibit of the Chicago Lighting Institute, the photo-electric cell, or electric eye, was put to its maximum usefulness. Indeed, this simple device seems to be the key to great- er efficiency and luxury in the future. The "eye" shows ability for adaptation in many fields. Persons who attended the exhibit were amused to find that they had set chimes to play- ing when walking through the doorway. An- other cell counted each individual as he en- tered. However, the most popular feature was an electric light bulb that could be blown out and lighted again with a match. A plate, sensi- tive to moisture, broke the electric circuit when breathed upong when the moisture was evap- orted by a match held close to the plate, the circut was completed again. Music from a gramophone was transmitted over a beam of light and amplifiedg it died down when the beam was intercepted. Smoke detectors rang a bell in the presence of smoke, while another piece of apparatus was able to detect metals concealed on a person. A great economic application was the turning off or on of lights in the presence of a certain intensity of illumination. The light bulbs of a window display were lighted whenever a person stopped in front of the window. Electricity from the body of the locker was amplified by vacuum tubes to com- plete the circuit. Other exhibits of more tech- nical interest were present. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 59 I .. 0 0 0 0 o 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 SE . . PG' I ' 04?

The clever cover design pictures the girl student in three characteristic poses, with three well-known articles, a pen, a notebook, and a briefcase. The inside pages do not de- tract from this pleasing impression which is so quickly and easily formed. The modern- istic sketches, the attractive titles, and varied assortment of editorials, stories, remarks, and the usual bunk-humor-are all presented in an amusing and forceful manner. From the titles of some of the articles it is easy to under- stand that the seniors are all thinking of what they are going to do after graduation. Articles such as "My First Job," HMr. and Miss Suc- cess,', "On Selling Shoes," and "My First Earned Money," are good proofs that some of these seniors have already tried their luck at earning money and have been very successful. Two other articles, also of interest, are, "A Girl's Ambitious" and "A Boy's Ambi- tionsf, 4'The Trend Towards a Liberal Busi- ness Educationn is an editorial which stands out prominently for its sincerity and helpful advice as to the requirements of the job-seek- ing graduate.

The latest issue of the "Garnet and Whitei' is completely dominated by poetry, whether joyous, meditative, or humorous. This poetry indicates that these boys and girls are also admirers of the glories of nature in the spring and are responsive to their feelings. Titles are "Spring,', "Tramping Feet," "The Artist," and "Spring Is Here." Class notes and club news are interesting editorials for the reader. Comments on present-day problems and events are combined under the title, "To- day As We See lt.', This column is a truly original idea and deserves much comment. "The Western Breeze" Western Hills High School Cincinnati, Ohio. lt may be "The Western Breeze," but it is blown into Steele High School on the wings of a gentle southern wind. This is a bi-weekly paper which includes editorials, reports, re- marks, and sport chatter. "The Western Breeze" had the distinction of being awarded the second place for high school journalists by Northwestern University. The "Breeze,' was favorably commented on for the make-up, the coverage, and organization of news. 'ABlue and Goldu Central High School Aberdeen, South Dakota. The eight-page publication of the Central High School is a paper of which the school can well be proud. This paper covers almost every possible interesting item and they are very well arranged. Few high school papers have a larger sport section than this publication. It includes personal interviews with prominent athletes and the coaches. An interesting article is written on the school Latin Club. This ar- ticle relates the account of the Roman Banquet, which was held in honor of the Roman god- dess of May.

The victim, panting, continues to push the infernal clapping nuisance over the lawn. As the perspiration rolls down his neck, his mind wanders to other more enjoyable activities. What a day for a refreshing swim! "Hey, Henry, wanna go fishin'?" A look from Henry discourages the pug- nosed freckle-faced boy, and he tramps lazily off down the street. Again Henry's mind wanders. He is holding one end of a fishing pole, and splashing his bare feet carelessly in the cool water. Suddenly a nibble, then a sharp jerk, and his float dis- appears beneath the water's surface. Dexter- ously he draws the squirming bass to his clutch- ing hands. 'fHenry! You haven't got all dayln Softly, "Aw, gosh! A fellow can't even think around here." Clank-clank-Clank. The "clanks" gradu- ally change to "clamps" and Henry Hnds himself straddling a spotless Arabian horse, riding the great open plains. Suddenly a pernicious wild- cat drops before him from a tree. The wildcat's doom was sealed. In one movement, Henry draws his six-shooter and fires, striking the cat between the eyes. Cheers arise from the other cowboys as Henry rides on. Once more the K'claps" of Henry's horse are heard chasing a run-away horse and buggy. The buggy, of course, is heading for a perilous cliff. Like a streak of greased lighting Henry swoops up to the frenzied run-away horse. Leaping from his mount, Henry lights on the back of the run-away, and in no time the buggy is brought to rest. A beautiful girl alights from the buggy and walks romantically up to blushing Henry. "Oh, you were wonderful," she declares in a chimerical tone. "Aw," stammers the hero, Hit was nuth-" Vivian Diemunsch HHENRYW, Rufus Hatfield' 735' STEELE SPOTLIGHT 65 Q Q M Q - - - X - I , Q 9 'Y-231 1 7 A '-' A .5 A Qi l x 5 , J ' 34 . " '11 f4"24'?"

Our team was successful in the greater number of its dual meets andwas outstanding in the Lanier Relays, the District, and City Meets. Steele won two first place trophies at the Lanier Relays. These two were won in the only events open to class A schools. At Oakwood the team was beaten by a scant three point margin. I Steele took seven first places. Steele was strongly represented in track and field events by the following fellows: 100 Yard Dash-Gerling, Richardson, Simp- son, Malone. High Hurdles-Thomson, Malone, Plumer. Mile Run-Borchers, Corwin, Shank, Wright. 880 Yard Relay-Brooks, Richardson, Ger- ling, Simpson. 440 Yard Dash-Stauffer, Zimmer, Danner. Half Mile Run-Kereszi, Dickson, Cramer. Low Hurdles-Malone, Richardson, Thomson. 220 Yard Dash-Gerling, Richardson, Simp- son. - Mile Relay-Zimmer, Dickson, Kereszi Stauffer. . . . Shot Put-Bristow, Karas, Courter. Javelin Throw-Dale, Dickson, Piper. Pole Vault-Lauderbach, Shepard. High Jump-Stokes, Piper, George. Broad J ump-Brooks, Simpson, Lauderbach. MM TENNIS At the writing of this article, the tennis team has just opened its season with a match against Stivers. From this opener one can feel safe in predicting a most successful court season. We should annex the city title if we can beat Fairview. The squad this year extended be- yond the city for its matches, and has made good showings against Sidney and Springfield. Among this year's players are the following: Milton Margolis at Number 1. Singles. Phil Stein at Number 2. Singles. Robert George at Number 3. Singles. Fisher and Alexander at Number 1. Doubles. Bertelstein and Lowman at Number 2. Doubles. Frank Zavakos, Jim Dickson, Charles Har- bottle, Robert Zellers, and Eugene DuVal are active members of the squad. 66 STEELE SPOTLIGHT GOLF The Steele Golfers lost their opening match to a strong Fairview team, but came back later in the season to make a good record. Besides their regular schedule of city meets, they had matches with Sidney and Springfield. This year's playing squad is composed of Franklin Graham, Lloyd O'Hara, Jack Thomp- son, Dick Martin, Jim Langman, and Dick Pickrel. DANCERS, ONE AND ALL "One, two, close." If you have recently been in the vicinity of the gym after school, this phrase has probably pounded upon your ears with alarming regularity. Perhaps you have even gone so far as to take a forbidden peek inside the doors. For some time Miss Bucher has been attempting to drill into the heads, and also the feet of the pupils the technique of ballroom dancing. On Wednesdays you may catch a glimpse of graceful young ladies obedi- ently gliding to the commands. The following Monday the athletes of the school may be seen vainly plodding through the paces. This one jerks, that one hops, another sways, but they dance on undauntedly. Miss Bucher's task is far from being an easy one. Complaints were received regretting the fact that more of the pupils are not able to dance, This reason is given in accounting for the scarc- ity of students attending the dances held here. Thus, the dancing class. Future dances should be a great success, since quite a number of boys and girls are being molded into accom- plished dancers. If you cannot dance, deter- mine to attend a class in dancing and join the ranks of the talented.

AND THUS LOOKING BACK OVER THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF' THIS ILLUSTRIOUS CLASS OF 1935, IT IS EASILY SEEN THAT THEY HAVE COVERED THEMSELVES WITH GLORY. STEELE SPOTLIGHT 69 Notice in a paper-Dorothy So-and-so, who was graduated from Wellesley College at the age of 20, never regained consciousness. Accepted Swain-I know I'm not much to look at.

"Remember the fool and his money are soon parted." "Yes, Uncle," replied Bob, "but I thank you for parting with it just the same." There is danger in carrying courtesy too far, if you believe the following. On a street car a man gave a woman a seat. She fainted. On recovering, she thanked him. Then he fainted. One antiseptic greeting another-Hy giene! Jean O'Conner-Where do you get your jokes? Betty Mundhenk-I make them out of my brain. Jean O'Conner-Oh! A wood-carver! We were about to drive off when somebody suggested that I look into the tank to see if I had any gas. It was pretty dark, so I lit a match and leaned over the gas tank. I brought the match directly over the gas tank to enable me to see if there was any gas left. I saw that there was plenty. So I got into the car and drove off.

Phil Stein-I want to take up international law. What course would you recommend? Mr. Holmes-Constant target practice. Janet Hart-I hear that Don and Faye are not on speaking terms any more. How did that happen? Lydia Osborn-Don asked her what she thought would be the best thing to use on his head, and she told him furniture polish. NO MEAT SHORTAGE YET "You're nice enuf to eat," said he, As on the porch they sat. HThe mosquitoes think I am," said sheg "They're giving proof of that." Charles Levy-How would you define straw- berry shortcake?
