1930-BLUE AND GOLD
When confronted with the huge task of publishing the HBLUE AND GOLD",
our first problem was to decide on a theme. The theme of an Annual, as you
probably know, is the same as the theme of a story, a poem, or a playfthe con-
trolling thought, which literally Uholds togetherv the various parts or divisions.
Finally, aftermany days of deep thought, we hit upon an idea! An Annual
has pictures and words, as likewise a newspaper has pictures and words, so why
not call it a newspaper? Thus, you have the title of our BLUE AND GOLD1IhC
"illustrated News", published by the Senior Class of 1930.
Before you refer to the Htable of contents", we shall tell you some ofthe high
spots of our Annual. You must not miss the calendar, or the jokes and the snaps,
for what would an Annual be without these? And the stories and poems, of
course, are the best that have ever been published. But why go further?
As we know 'you are anxious to peek inside and see for yourselves what the
1930 BLUE AND GOLD is like, we shall detain you no longer, and-we hope you

To Mr. Wzlltei' Stager, lawyer, poet, author, flower lover. and our kind friend, we dedicate
our annual in token of our appreciation of his deep interest in the welfare of Sterling and ol
our high school.
Because of his interest in the present generation as well as that of his own, we would like to call
attention to a few facts of his career.
Mr. Stager was horn in Sterling. Ylanuary 8, 1845, and has always heen devoted to serving the
puhlic and heautifving Sterling. Graduating from the University of Michigan in 1868, he practiced
law for fifty years, and was state's attorney for twenty-four successive years. In addition to his
practice he has written for law magazines. He is a poet, and we know he is an author, for we could
none of us forget the address he gave here ahout the early days of Sterlingf' which only shows again
how interested he is in our community.
ln addition to all this he has always striven to improve the heauty of Sterling with shrubs and
flowers, and has given hundreds of hulhs to the high school students, Flowers and shruhs are his
hohhy, and he has written helpful material ahout them. The iris and its propigation is of especial
interest to him.
Thank you, Mr. Stager, for all you have done.

Senior Class Mother
The members of the Senior class appreciate
the value of Miss Hersheyls sympathy and
understanding of "what the younger generation
is coming to." Whether we are down in the
depths, or up in the heights, Miss Hershey is
always somewhere around to share our sorrows
and our enthusiasm. May all .the coming
Seniors know her in the future as we know
E. T. AUSTIN
ls there any one present who has not been
to see Mr. Austin at least once in the last
four years? Whzit about those times you were
late to gym, or the time your note was inter-
cepted, or the day you forgot to come to
school, or had appendicitis? Yes, we all
admit we'Ve been in the oflice of offices. And
after the first tive or six times, we ind out
by ourselves that it was our fault and not the
teacherls. The least we can say about our
Mr. Austin is that he is fair when we come
to he reprimanded and kind when we come

Little tendrills of smoke
Reaching for the sky,
A shy sun
Hiding her brilliant beauty
Behind spotless blue clouds.
Red roofs and green pastures,
Shocked like golden Indian tepees.
A white road
Crawling over hills and valleys
Like a monstrous serpent.
A riot of molten gold and scarlet,
Tumbling over itself in its haste 1-
To reach the ocean,
A lone south-bound robin
Stopping to take a drink,
A subtle hazeg
Soon winter's icy hand will break the spell.

Last spring when we graduated we all looked forward to entering High School.
When school time arrived we enrolled and on the following Tuesday presented
ourselves and embarked on what is proving to be an interesting journey. 1
believe we were all rather terrified because we heard so much about the hazings
and razzings we would get, but it was not as bad as we had been led to believe.
In january, we held our first class meeting with Mr. Fulton as adviser. The
Ofhcears elected were Gordon Dewey, Presidentg Florence Sims, Vice-Presidentg
Miriam Dyson, Secretary and Margaret Irwin, Treasurer.
We have a good many boys on the different athletic squads and we are all
hoping for great things during the next three years.

Sophomore Class History
We, the class of 32, can boast now that we-are important sophomores, and
are now willing to confess that we were very green when we first entered the doors
of the Sterling Township High School. Our first year's experience as Freshmen
decidedly changed our opinions of ourselves Cand othersb and broadened our
outlook on life.
To help us through the freshman year, we elected George Hill for our
president and Lorraine Decker as vicefpresident and class queen. We bestowed
upon Kenneth Weaver the mighty offices of Secretary and Treasurer. Our main
social event that year was an enjoyable picnic at Lawrence Park.
It is very easy to see that we are an extraordinary sophomore class. When
you know our officers you will readily understand how we lost our verdant fresh-
man hue. It is a great pleasure to introduce to you Mr. Kenneth Weaver as our
president, Miss Wilma Breiding, our capable vicefpresident, and Mr. Alex Haglund,
our Secretary andiCollector of dues. Although we are not large in numbers, we
are great in scholarship and athletics. We are planning several social events later
in the year. '
Naturally we are going to have good teams and All Conference stars. The
prospects in every sport are most promising for our junior and Senior years.

Junior Class History
Searching through many an old annal for annualj for any facts that were
of interest, I came upon the history of the class of '31 of the Sterling Township
High School. Printed in an ancient type with many an archaic word the account
began. The class had entered the Halls of Learning and Knowledge in the fall
of 1927. According to the custom of "old S. H. S." the class early elected officers,
so the ancient volume said. Ned Rowland was the first President, Tom Davis,
Vice-President, Violet Eckman, Secretary, and Margaret Caskey, Treasurer.
The crisp yellow pages craclcled under my touch. Fearful lest 1 should miss
any fact concerning this class, 1 read on carefully. There had been a picnic C1
again found the story of the classl at Lawrence Park. Charred "weeners" seemed
to be the special dish.
The account continued in another volume. The archaic words were fewer,
the pages less old. The class came again to the Halls of Learning and Knowledge.
"Sophisticated Sophsi' the chronicler called them. Again ofiicers were elected:
Robert Snavely, President, John Baer, VicefPresident, Marian Hill, Secretaryg
Violet Eckman, Treasurer. The class held a picnic at Lowell Park this time.
And beans were the special!
The volume rambled on with accounts of other classes, clubs and parties.
Later it resumed the story of the class of '31, telling of the third visit to the Halls
of Learning and Knowledge. "Jolly Juniorsn now. The officers were Robert
Snavely, President, Donald Wadsworth, Vice-President, Georgianna Mathew,
Secretaryg Donald Mitchell, Treasurer. The class gave dances after the Friday
night basketball games. The money raised was for a certain "prom" given in
honor of the Seniors, so the chronicler said.
Here his account ended with some obsolete phrase 1 took to mean "continued
in our next."

Senior Class History
The class of '30 entered the halls of Sterling Township High School four
years ago'in our pursuit of higher education, ambitious and fondly believing we
were the one class that was the exception to the rule that all Freshies are green.
We approached those in authority with fear and trembling, but we soon learned
that they were our friends. To lead us through our first year in High School
we wisely chose Lyle Eshleman, President, Charles Conner, VicefPresidentg
Ruth lV1cCaslin, Secretary, and Harold Haldeman, Treasurer. Our first class
picnic was held at Sinnissippi heights. Other picnics were held at Lowell Park,
and though it might rain and rain Cas it did on our Sophomore picnicj nothing
could dampen our spirits on these occasions.
When we became Sophomores and were seated in front of Miss Stoddard's
desk, how busy we were and how important we felt! Very condescendingly we
showed the new Freshies the Assembly and other places that had become so
familiar to us. Ruth McCaslin as President, joe Gerdes as Vice-President, Jack
Hill as Secretary, and George Huber as Treasurer, proved a very able set of officers.
A ring committee was appointed and when they showed us the sample of the one
they had chosen we pronounced it the prettiest yet.
We launched upon our third happy year in High School with the following
officers elected: Floyd Higby, President, Genevieve Clark, Vice-President, Charles
Conner, Secretary, and Leo Schneider, Treasurer. Cut rings came early in the
year, and with them on our fingers we felt indeed a Class. Our junior year ended
with a modernistic Prom given for the Seniors. The class contributed faithfully
in making this function a success.
And then, almost before we could realize it, we found ourselves in the position
to which we had looked forward since we were Freshmen- that of being Seniors
in our own room under the guidance of our Senior Mother, Miss Hershey.
Our President, Lyle Snavely, and his helpers, Barbara Beckwith, Vice-President,
Evelyn Swingley, Secretary, and Charles Conner, Treasurer, have been very loyal
in leading us through our last and busiest year in S. H. S.
The class of '30 has been well represented in all forms of athletics. Many
of our number have taken part in the Latin plays, Glee Club programs, and the
band and orchestra. "Merton of the Movies", presented by the Dramatic Club,
as our Senior play, together with "The King's Englishn given at the Hallowe'en
Frolic in 1929 and "The lost Silk Hat" given at the Prom of the same year show
that we are not lacking in dramatic talent. '
Memories of the Hkidl' party at which the Faculty so delightfully entertained
us, our Hallowe'en Frolic, luncheons, and our Prom will keep our Senior days
dear in our hearts. Another memorable feature of our High School days is the
tulip and peony bulbs Mr. Walter Stager so kindly presented us.
We have only a few more weeks until Commencement and then we shall
go each our own way, with our Freshman ambitions strengthened by our experience
in S. H. S., to find our place in the sun.

1930-BLUE AND GOLD
Although Mr. Scheid has been
with S. H. S. for only two years he
has won the warm feelings of every-
one who knows him. He under-
stands football and track from every
angle and what he teaches our boys
is founded on years of experience.
When he has had time to firmly
establish his system of football you
may expect big things of Sterling
For eight years Coach Eades has
been turning out winning track teams
from any material he has at hand.
No coach in the state has a finer
insight into the track game, and as
a track man himself he has set up a
record to be envied, both in his high
school and his college days. His
ability to mould fine football players
is a well known fact because of his
many successful years at S. H. S.
Coach Whaley has been head
basketball coach at S. H. S. for a
number of years and has an enviable
record back of him. He can be ex-
pected to turn out many fine teams
in the future as he knows how to
handle boys and to win their con-
fidence. He also has a keen knowl-
edge of the game of football, and
gives invaluable aid to Coach Scheid
by instilling the rudiments of the game
into the Freshman aspirants.

1930-BLUE AND GOLD
Kenny is a hard fighting, line
plunging fullback who can be relied
upon to lead the football team of
1930 to a successful season. This
will be his third year as a "varsity"
man and when a few yards are needed
to make a first down he can be relied
upon to get them.
CAPTAIN LESTER RUSSELL
Captain Russell in his fourth year
as a football varsity player, proved a
true inspiration to his teammates.
No plays went successfully through
his position at tackle and his veteran
experience helped to encourage the
whole team in critical moments of
Being too light to participate in
which was to become manager. I-le
football, Ray did the next best thing,
was always willing to help and assist
the members of the squad. Ray will
be back next year. we are glad to say.

Review of 1929 Football Season
Sterling High School started the 1929 football season with a rush, when,
playing at home, they tied the strong Freeport eleven 6-6, and clearly outplayed
The next week they journeyed to Rochelle and met a 19-7 defeat at the hands
of the powerful Rochelle team who ultimately proved to be conference champions.
In this game, Sterling was on even terms until the final quarter when injuries and
forced substitutions handicapped the team.
The following Saturday, Sterling played a ragged game and Dixon tied them
O-O, having the upper hand most of the game.
Going to Belvidere next, Sterling won a 14-7 battle from a good team although
breaks of the game prevented a larger score.
The heavy De Kalb High team proved too much for Sterling in the next
game and carried home a 19-O victory although they had to fight hard to get it.
On the following Saturday, Sterling exhibited its poorest game of the year
to their keenest rivals, Rock Falls. The boys just couldn't get coordinated and
despite the fact they fought hard they lost 18-6.
The next week, Sterling showed its best game of the year and although they
were beaten by Mendota, one of the most powerful teams in Northern Illinois,
by a score of Z6fO, it seems that they should have had at least an even break.
ln the annual turkey day game, Sterling played its second scoreless tie with
Dixon, although the Sterlingites outplayed their ancient rivals in every department
of the game.
Thus ends the season of 1929 and although our boys did not gain many
victories, the true calibre of the team was much better than it appears and with
a fair share of luck it seems they should have had a better fate.

The season of 192930, although not a shining success, at the same time was not a complete
failure. With several regulars returning, the team was expected to 'Ago placesl' but the inability to
hit the hoop cost S. H. S. many victories, Time after time the boys would work the ball down under
the basket only to miss the shot. The boys got no breaks, in fact practically all the breaks went
The season opened with a victory over Mendota I8-I6. In the game with the Alumni the
varsity showed that they could play good ball. The game was a real thrill from start to finish.
The Varsity gave the "old timers" all they wanted and forced them to the limit, but the Alumni
was not to be denied and won I9-14. In the Northern Illinois Conference, the team won victories
over Dixon and De Kalb, but were on the short end of the other conference tilts. In the two games
with Rock Falls the boys played their poorest games. They passed poorly, fumbled, and missed
their shots, losing both games by wide margins.
In the District Tournament, the team showed that they could play a real brand of ball. In
defeating Amboy 32-10 the team functioned as a single man. Un the next evening against Morrison,
who had already defeated S. H. S. twice previously in this season, the team won another impressive
victory. In these two games the boys played as well as any team in this section. However in the
next game against Ohio, the old jinx appeared. After taking an early lead the team blew-up and
were on the short end of a I9-I2 score. In the Consolation game for third place, Coach Whaley
used a team composed of Seniors. The boys won a I9-I7 decision from Paw Paw to take third
place in the District.
The reserves showed real form and won the majority of their games. They showed remarkable
ability at hitting the hoop and were always fighting to the finish. With all the reserves and several
regulars returning, the team should Ngo places" next season.

1n addition to the varsity squad under Coach Whaley, an intramural squad of about 75 members
was organized under Coach Scheid. The purpose of this squad was to give boys who failed to make
the varsity a chance to participate in the sport, also to develop material for the varsity squad.
To create more interest the squad was divided into teams representing the leading colleges of
this section. A pull-robin schedule was drawn and the games were played on Mondays and Wed-
nesdays. Much interest was shown in these games not only on the part of those participating but
also among many outsiders. The teams were very evenly matched thus making some very inter-
esting and exciting contests,
With completion of the schedule "Northwestern', and "Chicago' were tied for first and "Notre
Damei' was next in line. lt was decided to play off the tie, also to have a picnic-supper for all boys
who had competed in the sport. This special attraction created much interest among the boys.
At last the given time arrived, and there was hardly a boy missing. The game was first on the
program and what a game it turned out to bel "Northwestern" jumped into a 2-O lead at the
quarter but were trailing 4-2 at the half. They were still trailing 85 at the three-quarter mark.
During the last period "Northwestern" came back strong with but forty seconds to go. "Chicago"
was leading 10-9 and then Bailey dropped in a pretty one to give "Northwestern" the game. The
eats were next on the program and how those boys did eat! After every one had eaten their full,
Coach Scheid presented the "Northwestern" team with a silver loving cup. Eddie King was
presented with the "Rubin trophy" for the player making the most fouls in the league games.
Captain Tom Wylie of "Nebraska" was given the "'Mansfield Cup" as "Nebraska" made the most
fouls as a team. lt was then announced that medals would be given to the members of the "North-
western", 'LChicago" and "Notre Dame" teams at a later date. lt is hoped by everyone that the
Intramural Meet will be an annual event in the school organization.

The Track Season
Under the able leadership of Cvlen Blough, a large squad of track men reported to Coach Eades
early in March, 1929. Of this number, however, only a few men were left who had won letters on
the fine team of a year before, so Coach Eades patiently began to rebuild his squad. On April 27,
a large number of men were taken to the Illinois Wesleyan meet at Bloomington, The competition
was too stiff for the Sterlingites to cope with and although the boys tried hard no medals were brought
back from there. On the following Thursday, under the direction of Coach Scheid, five men
including the relay team were taken to the invitational meet at Mt. Morris College. Despite this
small number, Sterling placed second only to a strong Oregon squad with 20 points. The fast
relay team consisting of Blough, Schuneinan, Conrad and Higby won first place and brought home
a large silver cup for our trophy case.
Cn Saturday, May 4, the sixth annual Rock River Conference Track and Field Meet was held
at Community Athletic Park in Sterling. With a total of 39 points, Sterling easily won the meet,
with Rock Falls and Rochelle second and third respectively. In addition, Sterling walked away
with the relay race in an easy fashion. This was the fifth Conference meet in six years to he won by
Sterling. This is indeed a fine record and one that any school should be proud of.
The following Tuesday, Sterling won the annual dual meet with Dixon in easy style, by a score
of 81 to 45.
The annual Cross-country run held at Dixon was won by Dixon with an impresisve score.
This was the first time that Dixon had won since these runs were founded several years back.
On Saturday, May 11, a large squad of men was taken to t.he Sectional meet at Moline. Al-
though they were pitted against extremely hard competition, Sterling finished well up in the list
with a total of fourteen points. By virtue ofa second place in the 220 yard dash, Higbv of Sterling,
was permitted to enter the State finals at Champaign. The field, however, was too stiff and Sterling
for the first time in several years failed to place at the State meet.
This ended the 1929 track season which was quite successful considering the inexperience of
the athletes of S. H. S.

The Orchestra is one of the older organizations in S. H. S., having been
organized in 1918 under the leadership of Mr. Ross Hull. The following year
Mrs. Evelyn Marsh became its director and she proved to be a very efficient one.
ln 1928 Professor Bergh became its capable leader. He continued to direct
the Grchestra for two years. After devising and patenting his 'LFiddelette"
he gave up his teaching, in order that he might devote his entire time to the
demonstration of his new invention. This instrument, which is now being
manufactured in Rock Falls, will make it possible for every public school pupil
to have group-instruction in music.
Gut new music director is Mr. Kenneth Bailey, a native of Ghio and a graduate
of Dana University of Music, Warren, Ohio, having played with many of the
leading orchestras in the Middle-West and South. He came to us in September,
1929, from Lincoln, Nebraska.
The Grchestra furnishes music for all the class plays and other activities
which are given during the year.
We all know the Grchestra is a big success, but we will say it again for the
benefit of alll

S. H. S. Band
The S. H. S. Band was organized in 1927 under the direction of Mr. john
Kenyon, for the purpose of stimulating interest in music and to provide another
medium for self-expression. Although the hand is a young organization it has
done creditahle work.
This year we have a new leader, Mr. Kenneth Bailey, and he has proved
himself an ahle leader, as well as a companion to the memhers of the Band.
During the three years that the Band has been organized it has shown great
enthusiasm and it is true, indeed, that it has been a valuahle asset in the effort
to develop the spirit of our dear old Sterling High.

The Glee Club was organized early in the history of our school. For many
years it was under the devoted leadership of Miss Ella G. Richards. Later Mrs.
Evelyn P. Marsh was for years its capable director. In 1927 Professor Harris
Bergh took charge of it. This fall the Club met under the leadership of Mr.
Kenneth Bailey, our new music director.
In the spring of 1928, the Cantata entitled "Building the Ship," was presented
based on Long,fellow's poem. In the fall of that same year it had again as its
leader Professor Bergh, During that winter the Glee Club presented "The Masters
of Melody." In the spring of 1929 it presented a comic opera entitled, "The
Pirates of Penzance."
The Glee Club has proven itself a successful organization and we all hope
that it will continue to be such.

Sterling High Players were organized April 27, 1927. The Charter Members were the cast
and executive staff of the following plays: "lee-bound" by Owen Davis, "Fashion, or Life in New
York in 1845" by Anna Cora Mowatt, "Two Crooks and a Lady" by Eugene Pillot, and "The
Noble Lord" by Percival Wilde. ln their meetings, held every month, the players discuss acting,
playing directing, play producing, stage-craft, including scenery and lighting effects, make-up, and
Any junior or Senior who has been a member of the cast or of the executive staff of a Sterling
High School play produced under the auspices of the English Department, is eligible to member-
ship in this club, subject to the approval of the Faculty Advisory Board of Sterling High Players.
A series of try-outs is held at the beginning of each semester for candidates from the junior and
Senior classes who would not otherwise be eligible. These tryfouts are open to Sophomores and
closed to Seniors in the second semester. The try-out committee is restricted to the Advisory
Board of this club. The Faculty Advisor of Players is Miss Rayma Rawson. The Advisory Board
consists of Mr. Austin, Miss Rawson, Miss Hershey, Miss Coney, Mrs. Marsh, Miss Saunders and
Sterling High Players held their Annual All-Players Picnic on May 23, 1929. On account
ofa heavy rain, the club was forced to remain in the Sterling High School Gymnasium instead of
going to Lowell Park. After a picnic supper, several stunts and mock-initiation of pledges took
place. "Wild Nell, The Pet of the Plains" was given in a very amusing manner by members of the
cast of "The Rivals' The rest of the evening was spent in dancing.
On May 28, 1929, Initiation of Pledges, admitted by a series of try-outs held May 15 and 16,
1929, was followed by Installation of Gfficers. The Officers who were installed were as follows:
President, George Huber, Vice President, Bertha Marting Secretary, Fay Freeman, Treasurer,
Genevieve Clark, Business Manager, Frances Hultsg Assistant Business Manager, Lyle Eshlemari.
The dramatic season of 1928-29 closed with the production of "The Lost Silk Hat," a comedy
in one act by Lord Dunsany. This play was presented in an excellent manner at the Junior-Senior
Prom on May 31, 1929.
During this year several productions of "Sham," a social satire in one act by Frank Cv. Tompkins
were given by the Players. This unusually clever comedy was presented in an extremely professional
style for six prominent clubs and organizations in Sterling.
The high-light of this most successful season of the Sterling High Theatre was the production
of "Merton of The Movies," a comedy in four acts, dramatized from Harry Leon Wilsoi1's Novel
of the same name, by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly, This delightful modern comedy
has been styled by its authors as "a satire on the movie business." It portrays the devotion of an
obscure youth to his ideals of making a finer type of motion pictureAhis earlier struggles and final
success in the picturesque whirl of the Hollywood studios.

high standards of Christian living. It is organized in order that the boys may be
brought into closer relationship with higher ideals of life. At the meetings ofthe

"Merton of the Movies"
"Merton of The Movies." a comedy in four acts, dramatized from Harry Leon Wilson's novel
of the same name, by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly was very successfully produced by
the Senior Class under the direction of Miss Rayma Rawson on November 14 and 15, 1929.
No more appealing and amusing play can be found in the whole realm of modern drama than
this comedy of an idealistic youth's striving to give the world something nner and more uplifting
in the motion picture art.
'LMerton of The Moviesl' is one of the most widely popular of modern American plays. It has
made a tremendous success as a novel, a play, and later, a motion picture. As a stirring story, a
picture of American youth, an interesting commentary on motion pictures, it has no equal.
Heywood Brown pronounced it "by all odds the most amusing show of the season," and the critic
of "The New York Times" spoke of it as "a delight in every way."
The story concerns Merton Gill, a wistful, eager, "movie-struck" boy from lllinois, who goes
to Hollywood, the mecca of aspiring motion picture actors and actresses, to make "bigger and better
pictures." In this dazzling world of unreality and gaudy display, amid the hardened and self-
centered movie folk, this pathetic youth moves on his lonely way, befriended only by the slangy,
impudent, harum-scarum extra, "Flips" Montague. ln spite of shattered ideals and cruel dis-
appointments encountered in the hostile atmosphere of the studios, Merton finally succeeds in
winning fame and fortune on the silver screen and decides that the loyal, sympathetic "Flips"
shall always be his "pal" and his Useverest critic."
The play is one of diversihed caricatures of twentieth century types. ln the small town group
we find the gruff but warm-hearted store-keeper, Amos G. Gashwillerg the flashy dandy, Elmer
Huff, and the aspiring scenario-writer, Tessie Kearns. ln contrast to these guileless middle-western-
ers, the Hollywood group includes such characters as the temperamental director, Sigmond Rosen-
blattg Harold Parmalee, Merton's model, a screen star who masks his ignorance with an air of bore-
dom, and Beulah Baxter, the lady of Merton's dreams, another screen idol who covers her shallow-
ness by haughty, supercilious airs. Other more genuine characters in this group are the dependable
Weller, the good-natured Casting Director, the genial, easy-going jeff Baird, and the gushing, motherly
"Merton of The Movies" was presented in a very finished manner by a cast and executive
staff of Sterling High Players chosen from the Senior Glass.

"The Lonely Flivvern
Still stands the flivver by the road,
Its paint with rust is eaten,
The springs still sag from heavy loads,
Its speed has oft' been beaten.
With radiator full of dents,
Fenders long since departed,
The body awf,ly wrecked and bent,
It stands there broken-hearted.
It lies upon its side forlorn
With bushes o'er it creeping
And people passing by at morn
Speed on and leave it sleeping.
But once it was a bright new car,
Its pickup fast and snappy,
Its speed was so far above par,
It made Cadillacs look sappy.
It kept its record bright and clean,
Unpassed by Nash or Packard,
Its like had ne'er before been seen,
It left fine cars far backward.
But soon its owner growing rich,
Had sought a finer transport,
And so he left it in the ditch,
And started for the airport.
Still stands the flivver by the road,
Dreaming of days gone by,
And as cars pass with laughing loads,
The lonely flivver sighs.

1930-BLUE AND GOLD
On November first the Seniors held their annual I-lallowe'en Frolic. This year it was confined
to the gym, but did we have fun!
Our very efficient and able Chairman of this Frolic was Barbara Beckwith. Together with her
ability and that of the committees appointed to assist her we successfully carried out this event.
The admission was a quarter, but we surely all spent more, Hallowe'en coming only once a year.
ln one corner of the gym, four darkfeyed, amberhued, and gaily-dressed gypsies were eagerly
waiting to tell our future. As they bent over the palms of their patrons, gazed into crystal balls,
and intently deciphered fateful tea-grounds, they made a weird effective picture in their improvised
hut of corn-stalks.
On the west side of the gym were arranged several very prettily decorated booths where hot-
dogs, pop-corn balls, candy, and l-lallowe'en favors were sold. Another very attractive feature which
lent itself to the decorations suggestive of the season was a massive orange-colored pumpkin filled
with gifts, at ten cents a "grab."
An Art Gallery, a new feature this year made up of the copies of famous paintings collected
from various parts of our high school building, proved to be a stimulating as well as any interesting
guessing contest. The prize offered for the longest list of correct guesses was awarded to Lorraine
Baker. Prizes were awarded to Georgianna Mathew for the prettiest coltume, Dorothy Wharton
for the most original, and Mina Williams for the funniest.
Later in the evening the Seniors presented a program. Several musical selections were given,
but the outstanding feature was the presentation of the pantomine "Wild Nell." Those taking
part in this very humorous skit were Geraldine Schyver, as Lady Vere DeVere,lvlildred Reed, as
the Indian Squawg Roy Hess, as Sitting Bullg Wayne Fritz, as Handsome Harry, Wilma Salmon, as
Wild Nellg and Eugene Rock, as Bull Durham. The selection was read by Chrystal Oclcen.
The last feature was a dance, which ended a most enjoyable evening.
Friday the Thirteenth of December proved to be lucky in spite of old super-
stitions, for on that memorable evening occurred the Faculty-Senior Party. About
ten days before this great event Miss Hershey had read the invitation from the
Faculty to the Seniors to attend a "kids" party. A beautifully lighted Christmas
tree bore the invitation.
The gym was a fairyland of Christmas decorations. lt was hung with gay-
colored streamers, and several gorgeously ornamented Christmas trees stood in
the corners. The walls were covered with imitation brick, and as a symbol of
the occasion a huge stocking filled with toys was hung on each side of the gym.
Each Senior as he arrived was given a Christmas seal and told to find his
group. Various games and contests were enjoyed under the direction of Miss
Echternach and Mr. Fades. Everyone entered into the real spirit of a K'kids"
party and the teachers certainly proved their ability to entertain us.
After the games we formed a large circle, and Santa presented each one of
us with a gift from the stockings that had hung on the wall. Mr. Austin and Mr.
Devoe received a sack of peanuts and a candy cane respectively, in honor of their
A delicious luncheon was served by the Faculty. We'll tell you what we had
-a cooky Santa Claus, a cup of ice cream with a Xmas tree on it, and a candy
Later, dancing was enjoyed. We then expressed our sincere thanks and
appreciation for the very good time that the Faculty had planned for us, and went
home feeling happy.
1930-BLUE AND GOLD
This memorable event took place May 31, 1929 in the Sterling Club rooms.
It was a gala occasion. The decorations were modernistic and most attractive.
US. H. Sf, in silver chain lightning framed in blue and gold was a striking feature
of the south wall decorations, while the windows were draped in green and orange
and linked together by bands of black and white. The side walls had large panels
of cubistic mass patterns which were framed in black.
A cubistic house front made the background of the stage. Colored tapers,
bouquets of iris, cubistic nut cups and place cards graced the tables. The lights
were beautifully shaded with multi-colored lamp-shades while huge clusters of
balloons hung from the central pillars, making a most pleasing effect.
After the banquet, Mr. Devoe served as toastmaster. The junior class
president, Floyd Higby, welcomed the Seniors in a brief speech to which john
Wadsworth, the Senior president gave a hearty response. Mr. Austin and Miss
Hershey gave brief addresses, after which John Ward entertained with several
solos. There was also a one-act play, 'KThe Lost Silk l-lat,'l which the juniors
presented very effectively. The cast consisted of the Caller, joe Gerdesg the Laborer,
Cveorge Huberg the Clerk, William Kabeg the Poet, La Follette Tippetg the Police-
man, joe Cross, and the Servant, Fay Bennett.
The floor was then cleared and the crowd enjoyed dancing until a late hour,
when another great Prom ended.

The Good Samaritan
The dusty road stretched far into the distance before a young Roman who was traveling with
only his body servant for a companion. His blond beautyfhigh fair forehead and finely chiseled
features showed great intelligence, but there was no kindness or friendliness in his facefonly
haughtiness and consciousness of generations of noble ancestors whose traditions he was to up-
hold. His very bearing showed him to be of a race of conquerors and the purple toga indicated
high rank. A beaten gold scabbard, heavy with gems, hung from the folds of a crimson tunic,
and gold lacings held his soft leather sandals. His glossy white Arabian mare daintily picked her
way through the sharp stones of the road and restlessly champed her golden bit, tossing a long,
silky mane around her proudly arched neck. The little bells on her rainbowfhued trappings
tinkled a soft accompaniment to the graceful movements of her slender limbs.
The Roman's handsome patrician face showed intense boredom and discontent, for the sun
beat down on them, and there were no sheltering trees to cut off a fraction ofthe discomfort of along
journey on horseback. He was Marcus Servinus, only son of Aurilius Servinus, and the pride of
the old warrior's heart. ln spite of his youth he had been given a government position, partly
because of his father's high station but largely through the powers of persuasion which his deep
treasure-chest owned. So Marcus was on his way to Jericho, where he would meet his superior
and receive full instructions regarding his ofhce.
Usually, the slave Ferrin was not to be considered a confidant, but with no other human being
in sight, Marcus chose to converse with him.
"Never was the sun so hot, the dust so unbearable, or a cool drink more distant. Of all the
mortals on this earth why should I be destined to travel this cursed route. Oh, for a fellow traveler
to bear it with me! Yonder is a crossroad. Hark! I hear horses' hoofs beyond the hill. Let
us hasten, Ferrinl It may be a company which will invite me to join it."
But when he reached the foot of the hill, where the two roads merged, he lost all hope of having
a companion, for he found himself confronted by a motley group of men who eyed his rich apparel
greedily. Their rough appearance proclaimed them one of the bands of robbers that preyed upon
wayfarers. The most gaudily dressed of the group addressed Marcus roughly, as the Roman spurred
his steed trying to look unconcerned.
"Halt and dismount!" he ordered briefly.
Marcus turned, and his hand grasped his sword in a swift gesture of defiance.
ul am a Roman, Marcus Servinus. Hold back thy dogs and slink home. lfI am set upon,
more than one of thy band shall rue it!"
The outlaws would have welcomed a rough-and tumble fight but Marcus' short sword had a
dangerous look. At a sign from the leader one of the men slunk along the underbrush at the side
of the road and crept stealthily up behind Marcus. As he lifted a heavy staff to knock the Roman
from his horse, Marcus heard his step upon the stones, and instinctively turning, he almost severed
the robber's upraised arm with a blow of his sword. Simultaneously every member of the band
set upon him, and when the robbers rode off, Marcus was left in a limp heap by the roadside.
The brilliant tunic was rent and soiledg his hair, once golden as the sun and delicately scented,
mingled with the dust, and one arm flung out showed a bloody hand stripped of rings.
Again the barren road assumed its lonely aspect. Small animals scurrying across the road
paused wonderingly at this unusual form which lay very still. And the fiery globe in the heavens
blazed iiercely down on him.
Hours passed. Finally a speck appeared in the distance. As it slowly approached it gained
the shape of a man, walking slowly but at a steady pace. Caiaphas, the most learned of the priests
who served in the temple at lerusalem, was returning from Jericho. A hooked nose, thin lips,
and skin the hue of parchment, broken up into a network of fine wrinkles, gave his face a severe,
relentless expression. Suddenly he noticed the Egure at the roadside. When he realized that it
was the dusty, begrimed body of either a wounded or dead man, he hastily raised his dimmed eyes
heavenward and passed by as far on the other side of the road as possible, lest his mind be degraded
at such a sight.
Weak from loss of blood, Marcus lay still as death. The dust of the combat had settled over
him until he was almost a part of the road.
Now another man whose dress showed him to be a Levite, appeared on the road. His was a
shrewd face with small shifty eyes. He was a little below average height and very thin-the kind
of man who is unwilling to indulge even himself. His brow was wrinkled in deep meditation and
his mouth pursed as if he were already in the market-place of jerusalem, testing a gold-piece for
true weight. Malcham was so busy thinking of his own affairs that it was not until he was close
to it that he noticed the unusual sight. Pausing a moment he looked down. But he did not for a
moment consider succoring the robbers' victim. Was it his business? What reward would he
receive for such an act? He passed by and was soon buried again among his thoughts.
For a long time silence reigned. The wounded man scarcely breathed and the dry, brittle
grass near him became more deeply stained. A raven flashing past circled over his head a moment
and flew off croaking dismally.
At last from around the hill an aged Samaritan leading a small gray donkey came into view'
A long gray beard almost covered his face except for the fine dark eyes, which gazed compassionately
on the man before him. His head was covered by a white cloth, which fell to his shoulders and was
held in place by a dark red band. Looking toward Mount Gerizim, the only legitimate place of
worship for those of his race, he murmured a short prayer. Dismounting, he knelt down and found
that the man was alive. Upon further examination he saw that the wounds were not serious,
but that there had been great loss of blood.
After binding the injuries as well as he could, and forcing some wine from a canvas flask
between the pale lips, the Samaritan lifted him onto the donkey and began to retrace his steps to-
ward the inn which he had left that morning. As the weary old man plodded into the coutryard,
the slovenly innkeeper arose from his bench outside the door.
K'Greetings to thee, Hannaniah. Was aught left behind? Haste" here he gazed openmouthed
at the figure on the horse. Hannaniah spoke briefly.
"I require a room for him."
The host hastily called for the servants who bore the Roman carefully to a bed. Hannaniah
saw to it that he had everything necessary and then went to his own room, for by this time night
In the morning he took from the meager store of a slim bag, two pence which he gave to the host,
saying, "Take care of him, and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again I will repay
"It shall be done as thou sayest," assented the keeper of the inn. Leaving clothing for the
wounded man, Hannaniah departed.
Two days later Marcus opened his eyes and looked about him. A child watching nearby
immediately ran off to tell the host that his guest had recovered consciousness.
When the man arrived at the bedside Marcus asked, "How came I here? Surely it is a new breed
of robbers which cares for my wounds and provides a bed."
"A kindly Samaritan brought thee here and gave me money for thy care," answered the inn-
keeper. "Can I add to thy comfort?"
The Roman was silent a moment as he grasped the full meaning of the statement. Then
he said wonderingly, "I know no Samaritan. I am a Roman. Surely thou art mistaken."
The host was not interested. "IfI cannot serve thee, have I permission to leave?',
"Where does this Samaritan dwell? What is he called?" ersisted Marcus, unheedful of the
"He is called Hannaniahf' answered the host. UI have heard him speak as if he knew the
city of Nablus. I know nothing more."
Marcus was still too weak to tax his mind.
The man left him and he soon fell asleep.
Marcus was noted for his magnificent physique, had been one of the most skilled of the Roman
nobles in use of arms, and often crowned victor in chariot races and gladitorial combat, so he
rapidly regained his strength. In a week he departed leaving his thanks to the Samaritan through
the host. He still puzzled over his rescue, for although Marcus was not as cold-hearted as many
of his race, he would not have thought of stopping to care for a person in the position he had been
1930-BLUE AND GOLD
in, and he saw no possible way by which the Samaritan might have gained from succoring him.
His Roman pride would not allow him to remain indebted to anyone and he determined to send
black a generous purse of gold to the inn with directions to give it to the man when he next stopped
Reaching Jericho, Marcus identified himself to the Roman official whose place he took and
received instructions concerning his work. Since Pontius Pilate at jerusalem could not hear in
person all the appeals made to him, Marcus' duty was to judge their importance and dismiss trivial
ones. Day after day he sat listening to the people's quarrels and to charges preferred by the govern-
ment. Many of these appeals, Marcus found, were complaints of the rulers of the synagogue,
especially the chief priest, Caiaphas, against followers of a person called jesus Christ. But their
evidence was so flimsy that he dismissed many of them. The accused persons, moreover, were
invariably so gifted with powers of simple oratory when pleading their cause that it was impossible
to convict them.
One day Marcus found before his judgment seat three men, one of whom he knew well, for
that one was Caiaphas, the unforgiving, who had brought so many people before him on petty
Marcus nodded to the captain of the guard who accompanied the men, as a signal to lay the case
before him. The guardis armor clanked as he bowed stiffly.
"Caiaphas, the priest, with Malcham, the Levite, as witness, doth charge this man with blas-
phemy against the God of the Jews and wishes authority to deal with him according to the law and
custom of the temple."
As the guard stepped back, Marcus said pointing to Caiaphas, "I will hear thee."
lDrawing his withered figure stiifly rigid, Caiaphas began, while his voice shook with righteous
"Forsaking the faith of his fathers this man has chosen to follow jesus, son of a carpenter,
whom he and some others call Christ. Daily we saw him in the Nazarene's company. Yesterday
he himself spoke to a great multitude and turned them toward the false faith of his Master, He
forgave their sins in the name of God, yea, a thing which is not even the privilege of us, Iehovah's
chosen priest for his temple! The law bids such to be stoned away, and Roman, thou mayst be
conqueror but our law shall be obeyed, openly if possible, but if not, secretly!"
A flash of hatred was in his eyes as he turned toward the accused man. But no feeling of the
kind appeared on the other's calm countenance, only, it seemed, a tolerant pity for the old man.
Marcus summoned him before him.
"Of what race art thou?" he asked.
The young man before him answered respectfully but with no hint of fear.
"I am a Samaritan."
The Roman started. A Samaritan! He was of the tribe to which his rescuer belonged.
Marcus knew by word through servants that the purse of gold he had sent back to the inn had never
been claimed. The debt was still unpaid. He studied the man before him. No person ever seemed
less like a rebel or traitor. But there was something beneath the calm surface which showed in
his eyes, his bearing. It was the power to understand people and to move them greatlyA.
With sudden resolve he spoke. "I am weary of thy bickerings, Caiaphasf' Then turning to
the guard, "Let him go!"
h Caiaphas lifted shaking, despairing hands to Heaven and left the room. The Levite followed
As the other man started to go, Marcus spoke.
"What is thy name?"
ul am called Zebedeef' was the quiet answer.
"And thy home?" V
"In Nablusf' '
"Hast thou ever heard of a man called Hannaniah?" The tone was businesslike, but Marcus
awaited the answer eagerly.
The man 'looked at Marcus strangely as he spoke softly with love and reverence in his voice.
"He is my father."
A penetrating happiness stole over Marcus when he said, "You may go."
And Marcus believed, as he felt the unusual sensation of satisfaction of having performed a
kindly act, that he knew why the Samaritan had saved him.
In the humble home in Nablus, Hannaniah was studying a highly prized manuscript his son
had sent him. lt was a copy of the Sermon on the Mount. Unrolling the scroll to the end, he read
again the part he liked best-.
"Therefore, whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so to them, for this
is the law and the Prophetsf!

The Brighton Case
Captain Dick Shannon of Scotland Yard, aged twenty-three and already marked for promotion,
gaily laid his work aside as a messenger informed him that he was wanted in the office of the director.
The director surveyed the young man before him for a short time before he spoke. Dick was
indeed well worth a second glance. He was tall and slender in a well-muscled, athletic way, and
undeniably good-looking. His features were regular, with a rather high forehead and a well-cut
straight nose. His hair was curly and brown, a warm brown that matched his eyes. His skin was
fair, but there was a healthy color in his cheeks, and his every move showed abounding vitality.
"Shannon, I was recently interviewed by a attorney whom I have reason to believe is in love
with his client, a Miss Sybil Martin. Miss Martin does not know of his visit, and he is very anxious
that she shall remain in ignorance of it. Miss Martin is to marry Lord Brighton next month, and
her attorney is certain that he is marrying her for her money. Lady Brighton was reported missing
from a steamer bound from Calais to Dover last year. All our investigations came to nothing.
Lord and Lady Brighton went on board ship that night, gave their tickets to the purser, and stowed
their baggage in the cabin assigned to them. There was a bad storm that night and Lady Brighton
is supposed to have fallen overboard during the worst part of the voyage. The attorney suggested
that as we have never ofIicially closed the case, we should continue investigations centering suspicion
on Lord Brighton. I believe you are the man for the case. Can you handle it?"
Dick replied with the light of battle shining in his eyes, "l'm certain that I can, Sir."
"Goodl You start work at once. By the way, keep me posted as to how you come out. Good
luck, my boy!"
Dick did not believe in wasting time-that very afternoon he was on his way to Brighton Manor.
He parked his shiny, little roadster near the lodge gates and strolled into the grounds. He passed
through the massive iron gates, and stood gazing at the ruin of what had been a fine stone lodge.
It was now in a pitiable state of disrepair, tiles had dislodged from the roof, the windows were grimy
and broken, and the little garden in the back was over-run with weeds and thistles. From this
he passed across the lawn for about a quarter of a mile, and arrived at the door of a very pretensions
English manor house.
The door opened almost immediately in response to his ring. Lord Brighton, a tall, broad
man, dressed in a golf suit, stood in the doorway. His fair hair was long and hung over his forehead
in a thick, flat strand, a heavy, tawny mustache hid his mouth and swept down over a chin that
was long, and aggressive.
"Well?" he asked shortly.
"I am Captain Shannon of Scotland Yard. I came down to see you about the disappearance
of your wife. I merely wish to check up on a few details," Dick informed him.
Lord Brighton gruffly invited him in and flung himself into a chair with a sigh.
"Well, fire away," he said. "You chaps went so thoroughly into the case before, that I thought
nothing had escaped you."
"Briefly tell of what occurred before you set sail," Dick invited.
"We left here at night," Lord Brighton began. "It was only a short run over to Dover. We
arrived at the pier at about eleven o'clock, and after getting my cabin key from the purser I left
Lady Brighton and her baggage inside. I left the car in a garage nearby and returned to the ship."
Shannon nodded, "I see. After you were under way you were called on deck, leaving Lady
"Yes, I received a telegram from my lawer. When I returned to the cabin my wife was gone.
I thought she was somewhere on board ship at the time. Later, when she did not return, I began
to get worried. I notified the ship's crew, but a thorough search failed to locate her. We were forced
to the belief that she had fallen overboard."
UH L . . ,,,
er adyship was a good sailor. asked Shannon idly.
"Yes, she was a fine sailor and was exceptionally well that night."

Shannon thanked Lord Brighton and departed. I-Ie spent some time in the nearby village
conversing with the various gossips and town wags. The only important thing he learned was
sufficient to send him home rejoicing.
The dusk fell early that night and brought with it a fog so dense that it was hardly worth while
to venture out unless one was thoroughly acquainted with the topography of London. Rain began
to fall early in the evening and added to the general effect of gloom.
At the stroke of midnight, Dick started for Scotland Yard from his home, some distance away.
As he felt his way through the murk and gloom his mind was racing. Tomorrow would see the end
of the case, of that Dick was sure. Arriving at the Yard, he picked up two of his most trusted men.
Crouched in the low car, as it nosed its way through the fog, Dick explained exactly what he intended
ti do. The car picked up speed once out of London, and they arrived at the Brighton estate in a
s ort time.
Leaving the car parked some distance away, the trio made their way silently up to the house.
thankful for the fog which completely hid them from the view of anyone who might be watching
at this hour of the night.
Dick effected a silent entrance into the library window by means of a small jimmy. At the
foot of the stairs Dick paused and removed his shoes. I-Iis companions did likewise. Then began
a long, tedious, and careful ascent of the stairs. Infinite pains had to be taken that no one in the
house be disturbed. At last Dick stood in Lord Brighton's room.
I-le carefully took a powerful flashlight from his pocket, leveled it at the bed, and steeled himself
for his supreme effort. Suddenly he shot the beam of the flashlight full on the face of the sleeper,
and simultaneously he shouted, "Where is she?"
Lord Brighton shot upright, and the words escaped like a leaping torrent, "Under the hearth!ll"
Almost before he knew it Lord Brighton was on his way to the Yard under the custody of one
of the detectives. Dick and the other officer raised the hearth of the great stone fireplace in the lodge.
There they found the dreadful evidence.
"The whole case turned on whether Lady Brighton was a good sailor or not, "Dick explained
to the director the next day. "I learned from one of the village gossips that she was a very poor
sailor. Now if she had been a very poor sailor it is unlikely that she would have been on the boat
ten minutes before calling the stewardess. The stewardess did not see her, nor did anyone else,
for the simple reason that she was not on the boat. She was murdered in the car between the
house and the lodge. The lodge was the most likely place to leave her and I was sure the body was
concealed there. Since Lord Brighton arrived at the pier at the same time as the boat-train, no
one could have possibly seen whether or not he was alone. Lady Brighton was officially on board
because he had surrendered her ticket to the purser with his own. I found that there is a heavy
mortgage on the Brighton estate which falls due soon. After this discovery I was sure that Lord
Brighton was marrying Sybil Martin for her money. I was equally certain that Lord Brighton
murdered his wife. I merely used the old flashlight trick to get his confession."
"Let me congratulate you, Shannon. You came through with the goods for sure."

Melody of Life
Lone at his quaint chalet,
An Alpine blower lingers,
Fondly caressing his instrument
He lends enchantment to the scene
His ancient abode
In rustic beauty blends
Its shade into
While towering peaks
Give depth to the picture
In which man seems
An insignificant feature.
Across these Alps a wavering tone
A tremulous, quivering note,
Struggling for life in the vast unknown,
It swells and resounds
O'er mountainous chateaux
Till, reaching its peak,
And shattered falls,
Then slips away into oblivion.
Another follows in its wake,
Another and yet one more,
But all pass on
And are lost anon
In the intricacies of God's labyrinth.
-Dorothy Wharton, '31
'ii '33 '33
I looked upon a crowded city's strife
And saw with sickening heart its ugly sights-
Its filth and grime and drunken brawling fights,
Men's souls lost even where there yet was life,
While greed and hate and selfishness ran rife,
And watched with pity, poor, defenceless mites
Of children who were robbed of childhood's rights
Fwy cruel I:ate's remorseless keen-edged knife.
Then 'mid these thoughts a child I chanced to see-
Another of those ones for whom I yearnede
A small girl, ragged, yet with happy face,
And going near I saw she looked with glee
Upon a flower she held. And so I learned
That beauty comes to those who seek her grace.

The Westbound Mail
The sleet beats down on the hangar roof,
With a sound like the voice of fate,
The chief looks out sad reproof,
For the westbound mail is late.
Still the sleet beats down with a mighty roar,
A triumphant song of hate,
The men are watching at the door,
For the westbound mail is late.
Searchlights are seeking through the sky,
Chief fears it is too late,
And as he watches he heaves a sigh,
For the westbound mail is late.
A plane is scattered on the ground,
A man has met his fate,
The pilot lies without a sound,
Yesfthe westbound mail is latel
'John Hutigate, '31
A long shady street
Their branches interiningling
Make a green rooff
Shady and dim.
On the avenue beneath
Shaded from the summer sun
Far from the tumult of the town
And back from the street
Are stately houses
Proud old houses
Living in traditions long since dead,
Living in the shadow of long ago,
Surrounded by old trees,
They look down
On the houses of today,
Low, squat houses,
With no trees.

Psalm of Physics
Tell me not with lilting cadence
Physics is a pleasant dream,
For the soul is dumb who says so
And he's nutty in his bean.
It is real! It is earnest!
And the grave is its sure end,
Dust's not dust+it's molecules- ,
Come, O Muse, assistance lend!
'Mid the lab's dark, unknown horrors,
Struggling with a leaky pen,
Lo! Pve finished! Then DeVoe comes?
l'Nope. You'll have to do it again."
Lives of physics profs remind us
of BX times LX',
We depart-and leave behind us
Mem'ries of a hectic time.

Now I slow me down to park,
Depress the gas, retard the spark,
And hope that I will finally face,
What proves to be a parking place.
Now l park me for the day,
And for my car a prayer I'll say,
And hope llll not return belated,
And find my fenders mutilated.
And now l take myself away,
For l have work to do today,
And hope I'll not start back to find,
The car's location has slipped my mind.

1930-BLUE AND GOLD
The ships, which once sailed down the Spanish Main,
I now see pictured to me once again, A
The clouds which now are floating up on high
Are pirate vessels sweeping through the sky.
Here comes the ship of fierce scarred Morgan hold
Stacked to the hatches with doubloons of gold,
Wrested by force from some proud Spanish Don
ln a ferocious battle barely won.
Proud Kidd with all his fabled priceless wealth
Creeps on a stately Spanish ship with stealth,
Seizing his prey as only Kidd can do,
He sinks the ship and all its Spanish crew.
Now fades the ancient picture from my eyes,
The pirate crew with all its Spanish prize,
The fleecy clouds are fleecy clouds again,
And are not ships that sail the Spanish Main.
-Floyd Higby, '30

Still and silent master,
Teach me, tell me
The meaning of life.
Secrets of thy silence.
To thy giant cathedrals
Of redwood, birch, and maple.
Show them to me
These God-made cathedrals.
Through thy stones and flowers
What Cvod is, and man
Teach me the hymns, sung by choirs
Let me find
My sermon in rocks,
My text in the clouds.
Oh silent forest,
Tell me, the dreamer,
The meaning of life.
