ln Spite of Industrial and Financial Conditions During The Past Month M. C. S. A has not been able to fill nearly all the positions that have been offered to its young men grad- uates. A long list of young women, graduates of M. C. S., have likewise been placed in pleasant and profitable positions. In short, young men and women with M. C.

Committees from Wakefield, Reading and Stoneham have met three times and definite plans are now under way. Mr. Clyde W. Carter of Stoneham has been elected as General Committee Chairman and Mr. Turner of Reading as Secretary. A constitution is now being drafted and will shortly be submit- ted tor the signature of the different societies comprising the league which ls to be known as the Middlesex Triangular Debating League. Thevtlrst annual Interclass Debate, between teams representing the Sophomores and Jlmiors was held in Assembly Hall, on the evening of May 21, 1915. The question was, Resolved: That the fraternity is undesirable in the secondary schools of our country. The Junior team, upholding the negative side, won the debate, and re- ceived the loving cup presented by the Washington Club for the best team. The Junior team consisted of Geo. Sargent, Capt., Clyde Carter, Wesley Fisher, and Karl Craigie, Alternate. Mr. Wesley Fisher of the Junior team' won the G. W. Bell medal for the best individual debater. The Sophomore team consisted of George McDermott, Capt. Lemuel Childs, Bruce Whiston, and George Atkinson, Alternate. I The presiding otilcer was Mr. Jas. J. McDonald, Pres. of the Webster Debating Society. The judges were Principal Chas. J, Emerson, Superintendent A. B. Webber and Mr. Walter Gorham. 3 The Sinxwlynm 'High Srhnnl ghrlhvniic k ll- I lu ll' un ' ' ' 1 gn all 15 . V i ' ,I I - 1 I 1 V i K 21135152 313311 Finnegan . . ...... ......

One of the most interesting of the league games was the one with Win- chester. Stoneham took the lead at the start, batting out four runs from Mathews in the first inning. They kept the lead until the seventh, when Winchester scored four runs tlirou-gh errors in the outheld, Winning the game 6 to 4. On May 12, the nine took their old rivals, Wakefield into camp by a score of 4 to 2. Temple pitched a fine game, keeping the opponents' hits well scattered. The team has great need of a coach. In many of .the games it has ontbatted its opponents and then lost. Also many good chances to win games have been lost through plays which a coach would have prevented. It seems a pity that such a good bat- ting team should not have the proper coaching. Though the kindness of Mr. T. R Healey, a beautiful silver cup was of- fered for the player securing the highest batting average in more than tive league games. The following column shows the final averages.

The competition was even more close than the figures show, as both Ryder and Martin came within a hair's 'breadth of dcposing Finnegan, as the champion in the last game. The school, as well as the team owes its thanks to Mr. Healeyj The recent controversy between Stoneham and Woburn High has finally been settled in Stonehanfs favor. Judge Morton, in rendering the iinal decision refused to allow the case to go to a higher court as Woburn desired it should. .120 Track The team and the school deeply re- gret the loss of Capt. Worthen to the track team, his illness making it un- safe for him to run. George McDer- mott was elccted captain in his stead, In the recent interclass meet the Sophomores won easily. The Senior class came in second: the Freshman class third, and the Junior class last. As there is to be no football next year, it is hoped that all our efforts will be put on the track work, and that we will have one of the best teams ever had at Stoneham. 'll ii '-1, ., - wil'-'hm .

It is easy to get into the rut of asking another about little things in your studies: and you soon get still deeper into the rut, by letting him do more and more of your work until finally he does the greater part of it. As a result, what will happen? You will try to bluff your way, and although blutl' may cause temporary success, it never results in permanent success. You will be inefficient, and lnetilclency is a quality which business men do not consider at all desirable. When you get out into the world, you will not find everyone willing to help you in your work, as your friend did at school. You must do it all yourself. Don't imagine that your superiors are going to help you to rise in the world. They are working for their own advancement,-not yours. If you expect a big j-ob when you get into the world-you will be obliged to work for it! The man who wills can do anything he determines to do. You must not let others do it for you. In doing it yourself, your brain power will expand, and you will ibe a bigger man for doing it. And so, be self-reliant-do it yourself-and you will succeed. Cigarette smoking has been universally condemned 'by scientists and learned men. Thomas Edison tells us that it has a violent action on thc nerve centers. It also produces degeneration of the brain cells, which hap- pens very rapidly among growing boys. This degeneration is permanent and uncontrollable. As a result of smoking the brain acts more and more slowly, and the nervous system is paralized. Boys who are in the clutch of the cigarette habit become its slaves. They cannot put their minds on their work. Boys think they can smoke a little now and then and stop when they please. They don't understand that the continued use of cigarettes weakens their will so much, that when they want to stop, they cannot. Smoking lowers etliciency in all lines, thereby undermining the victim's future. Business men prefer non-smokers as their employees, for an habit- ual smoker is both morally and physically inefllclent. The cigarette strikes a direct blow at the most vital organ of the body -the heart. For this reason it is dangerous for the cigarette addict to en- gage ln athletics. The boy with a weakened heart is more lla-ble to suc- cumb to tuberculosis or other acute disease. ' The relation ot tobacco, especially ln the form of the cigarettes, to opium and alcohol is very close. A boy starts smoking before he begins drinking. He is likely to resort to alcohol to soothe the muscular unrest received from the cigarette. From alcohol he goes to morphine for the same reason. Cigarettes, liquor and drugs are the logical and regular series. "I am not much of a mathematician," said the cigarette, "but I can add nervous troubles to a boy: I can subtract from his physical energy: I can divide his mental powers: I can multiply his aches and painsg I can take Interest from his work, and discount his chances for success." 5 imp ,stanelpmr High School Authentic A 7 it rr a ry :Pm Ebcperiment in Zffhlxnatinn Qfirst Qinnnx-I-liha ,Stefxms A "God didn't create Provincetown," said an old native once to Charles Burton. "It washed there." It might be said with equal significance that out of the bed of Lake Michigan was washed up Gary, Indiana, a city whose site was so sandy and drear that wmhen a few years ago, a moving picture concern wanted a iilm showing a. scene in an African desert, camels and all the necessary para- phernalia were sent to Gary. Where seven years ago there was a population of a scanty three hun- dred, the United States Steel Corporation has caused to spring up a bustl- ing city of forty thousand, modern in every respect. As its population, representing thirty nationalities, increased, the few schools proved insuillcient to meet the new demands. Something had to be done. When Mr. Wm. A. Wirt, the newly elected Supt. of Schools, was asked his opinion of the schools already built, he said, "Well, you've made an ex- ceedingly bad beginning." . "Why, they're built on the most modern American lines," the steel men protested. "Exactly," replied Mr. Wirt, "that's just what's the trouble with them." He then explained his plan of an ideal school. When they understood that his system would do the Work of three modern American schools, they were moved by this demonstration of 60011011152 And so it happened that Gary obtained the finest school system in the country, not because it was so rich, but because it was so poor. Under this system, the kindergarten, primary, grammar, high school and two years of college are in one school. This, in a large measure, solves the problem of pupils' leaving school, for as there are no graduations from grammar to high school, the pupils find no convenient stopping places. They are promoted by subjects rather than by grades: for example, in mathematics. a pupil might be in the eighth grade, while in Latin he might he a. sophomore in high school. This feature is ibetter economically, for it is cheaper to have completely equipped centers than to duplicate such equipment in many smaller centers. Nowadays, 'boys and girls have too much time on their hands, 1 con- dition which leads many to habits of vice and idleness. In Gary, this sit- uation is met by the fact that the school day is from nine until six and E Ulla Slnnehmn High ,School ,Authentic that a third of that time is spent in the jolliest and healthiest supervised play. Of the other two-thirds, one is given to academic work and one to the learning of some useful art or trade. In other words, the Gary idea is to substitute the supervised play in .the schools for the non-supervised play in the streets. ' - School is compulsory five days a week for ten months, but the building is kept open the year round. The pupils may take their long vacation any season of the year they please. It is both surprising and interesting to know that over one-half the scholars come back on Saturdays, evening and vacation quite as much for their studies as for their sports. The school plant is utilized evenings largely -by adults and older boys and girls, who work in the mills. Theatres, plays, and supervised dancing are also held in the school certain evenings of the week. This ideal school includes beside the academic equipment, a play- ground, garden, park, school farm, social center, library, and a work-snop in charge of trade-union masters where carpentry, cabinet making, plumb- ing, housepalnting and practically all the important trades are taught. The girls have classes in all branches of domestic science. The teachers are specialists, who teach one subject only. The old-fash- loned grade room, where the children recited all their lessons to the same worn out teacher, has been abolished. There is a room where arithmetic is taught, others are occupied exclusively with English, Latin and so on. The playground, workshop, and classrooms are always tilled. One third of the children are at play, one-third are in the shops, and one-third are in the classrooms all of the time. 'When the division which ls in the class- rooms has iinished its studies, it passes out to play: those in the shops, in turn, come in to till the classrooms, and those who were at play go into the shops. -School is thus a succession of work and play. As said before, economy is manifest, for just three times the number of pupils may be accommodated in a school of this kind as in the ordinary American school. , If a child is deficient in arithmetic, he may for a few days give up his play, remain in the same room for the next period and have the work over again with the incoming class. In Gary, the individual child is trained and the studies are -fitted to his needs, instead of the -child trying to adapt himself to studies perhaps wholly unsuited and distasteful to him. , Once in a while a lad presentshimselt at the principal's office announc- in-g that he is going to leave school. "Why, John, what's the trouble?" the principal asks. "Are you tired of your studies?" "Yes, I am," replies John. "What would you like to be, John?" "Well, sir," answers John, "I think l'd like to be a plumber." "That's a good trade, my boy," the principal agrees. Then he suggests John drop his studies and devote all his time'to learning the trade in the plumber's shop. Perhaps John finds out that he doesn't like plumbing. If so, he can test the Work in all the different shops until he Ends a trade suited to his tastes, 7 Uh: Sinnzlyxm High ,School LAxdl-gexuii: He has the advantage of being able to experimentiin school, and does not in after life have to drift from job to job-forever seeking but never finding the Work for which he is 'best fitted. The different shops are not only self supporting, but are an annual source of income to the schools, for the boys learning the different trades do the entire repairing. The school grounds which are divided into two parts, one for the girls and the other for the boys, are kept immaculate by them. In each part are swimming pools, sand pits, tennis courts and, in fact, every con- ceivable kind of playground apparatus and equipment which has been almost entirely planned and built by the pupils. Woe to him who molests any shrubbery which they have planted in the rich, black soil. One remaining feature deserves brief mention. Mr. Herbert Roberts, who visited the schools, in a spirited report, says in part: One of the basement rooms in the Emerson school bears the legend-- Boyville Council Chamber K Mayor and C1erk'S Oilice. Inside is a semi-circle of aldermanic chairs with the mayor's siege d' honneur at the top. Here the representative council of Boyville, elected by the duly qualified voter, meets and passes its law. The other day, it passd ft law making the kids cut out going over people's vacant lots in the school neigh- borhood. Did it themselves. The boys called for more garbage cans for Gary and a stricter enforcement of the cigarette law. The fact of the busi- ness is that in live years' time, the kids of Boyville will be running that town of Gary and running it right. ln live years the Gary schools will own the whole works and everybody in it." Truly, the Gary Schools are an "alma mater," a fostering parent in the good old Latin sense of the Word. . ' The Maman nf 'igesterhag zmh filnhag Sermtb Qinnur-Faiherhe BXTSEUU We are told by wtise men that we can know only by contrast. After we have tasted something bitter, we know by contrast what is sweet if we haveexperienced pain, we understand pleasure. Consequently, it is often well to contrast our lot with that of people who have lived under less for- tunate conditions. Girls, can you carry yourselves back in imagination about two hundred years? Imagine yourself strolling to school with your sister of yesterday- not to learn the three R's, reading, 'ritin.g, and 'rithmetic, as your ibrothers do : but to learn only the househld arts of cooking, knitting, weaving, gar- ment making, and the like. After completing this narrow system of education what future do you face? Splendid courses in universities, seminaries or business colleges? Oh, no! Your task is to win a husband. You must first flll a chest with mhz ,5lnuelyam Qliigh School Qxulhentl: clothing to be used in your future domestic lifeg not until this is done may you be married. It is then by no means a hard task to wln a husband- bachelors and old maids being objects of much contempt. At one time there was in Boston a very ancient old maid of twenty-five summers, who was looked at terribly askance. . Your husband won, your woman's task of home making is exceedingly dillicult. Not only must you feed your family, but also spin and weave the cloth wherewith to clothe them all, mould the candles, and compound Your own medicines, some of which seem very queer in comparison with our present scientific methods of treatment. For instance, a sure remedy for rickets I must impart to you. Take a -bushel of snails and boil them in fbeer, add to this a. quart of earthworms nicely cleaned and sliced, add also many herbs and boil the whole ln a gallon of ale. This remedy is fully approved by the learned doctor of your village. Your children brought up and mar- ried, your task is ended and so tired, so wearied, so worn out by life's bur- dens are you, that you can not enjoy the short rest remaining for you. This little glimpse into the lives of the women of yesterday surely makes us revel in the fact that we are women of the present. I need not point out the contrast-schooldays tllled with sports, soclals, and interesting. work: youth with its Elorius 0DD0Y1l1lI1iti9s ln every fleld of activity: domestic life with its tireless cooker, its "wet wash," and its wo- man's club. K It is one of the glories of our age that the Woman of average powers can use these opportunities. But what of the woman of unusual ability? Must she hide her candle under a bushel just because she is a Woman? Ah, no! Witness Jane Addams. The thought of her brings with it inevitably the thought of Hull House. Before she was seven years old her father, a miller, had occasion to take the little girl with him to a. mill ln the poorest quarter of a, little city. "'W'hy," Jane inquired, "do People live in such horrid little houses, so close together?" After listening thoughtfully to his reply she an- nounced with much firmness: "VVhen I grow up I shall of course, have a large house, but it shall not 'be built among other large houses, but among horrid little houses like these." Has Miss Addams succeeded. Let us ask a policeman of that district what Hull House, the great Chicago settelment, means to him. "I have e very easy job of it," he replies. What does she mean to a lonely girl? She provides a place for enjoyment for reading and for entertainment. She is a big sister always ready with sympathy and advice. The little street urchin replies that he can enjoy at Hull House all the games dear to a boy's heart without interruption, and can even learn a trade there. Indeed. I-lull House ls of infinite value to every person in Chicago, and Jane Addams has made it what it is. Books could be fllled with the splendid service of such Women as Anna Howard Shaw, Albion Fellows Bacon, and Frances A, Keller-but gil'lS. lsn't it due to be living today? "I am sorry to have to do this," said Johnny, as he spread jam on the cat's face, "but I can't have suspicion pointing its finger at me," 5 A 5111: ,Stomhaxu High School Quthmiic apt-uplyecg of the Glass nf 1515 Harman Q2 Hunt Kindly give me your attention, Vifake from dreaming, rouse from naps, For we know that rhymes from reason Very frequently will lapse.

But, before I start this story ' Let me whisper in your ear That I live in nineteen hundred In its thirty-second year. On the High School lawn last evening There were gathered in a mass A brilllant, happy company, This same graduating class. Time had placed its mark on each one, Each brow had its line of care, But from this their grand reunion Naught detained them, all were there.

'Twas September, nineteen 'leven, Over twenty years ego, When some tlfty grinning Freshmen To our High School had to go. 'Twas the oft-repeated visit, And they came from near and far, "Lordly ln their lack of wisdom, Saucy as some new-born star." Through four busy years they tarried, To the teachers it was joy, For such studlousness was never Seen before in girl Ol' boy. They demonstrated crafty problems, Chased the French verb from afar, Scribbled shorthand, English, German, Hit the typewriter, key and bar. Then, their graduation over, They had gone into the world, And through the hfteen years that fol- lowed, By Iife's blllows tossed and whirled, They had wished for a reunion Where they all could meet once And renew their youth together, Tell experiences by the score. UIOFB As I stood, thus musing ever, The hrst guests came up the road, They were Finnegan and Hamill, Chief inventors for the "Ford." Their sparkless spark plug never misses, Of it, they are justly proud, Driving them was their mechanic, Our friend, Daniel N. McLeod. Mildred Gould and Florence Loughlln VVere the next ones to arrive, Famous kindergarten teachers, To latest methods quite alive. Dorothy Burgess, the noted author, Brought along her latest book: Following came Martha Louis, The world noted pastry cook. As the old familiar faces Joined the ever increasing throng, Swelled by a swift stream of autos, Peerlesses and Packards long, I realized to what extent ' Each one had made his mark, How the' world had rung their praises From the "North End" to "the Park." In the history of the Nation There shine forth these names of note, Harold Eugene Moses Bancroft, President by sweeping vote. Our Chief-Justice, James McDonald, Has ponderous tact and strength ol' ' will, Yvhile as governor of Massachusetts Merle Farr, sits on Beacon Hill. As ambassador to China We have Woodman Walter Clough, How he put down opium smuggling Poor old China won't avow. Hattie Spooner's strong for suffrage, Her activities stir the "Hub," All reporters note her doings From star man to merest cub. Cogan's Compound Soothing Syrup, Plus Keenan's Klllsure Liver Pills.

And a sound of smothered laughter Rlppled through the merry crowd. Geraldine Octavia Duplln, Mlrth is stihed ln my throat. Gone are all the frills and ruflles, Gone indeed the tango coat. Her husband is a minister, An eminent D. D., And she's a model housewife, Whose children number three.

Vida Stevens-Dean of Wellesley- My! Her dlgnity's appalling, Yet undoubtedly she needs it, Quite the thing ln such a calling. Joseph Canning-Dancing Master, Steadles "Trots" to stately steps, Standardlzes the new dances, From awkward youths turns out adepts. ' Wvhen you want to send a package By express instead of freight.

' The High School Battalion turned out with the Memorial Day parade, May 31st. Better time was made this year as the Grand Army Veterans rode in automobiles. In the parade was a company of Naval Brigade from Boston. Lieutenant Copeland commanding. a.fI'hey showed up well and put much spirit into the other companies, but they were not the whole show. for H Coqwere among the headliners. After the parade the 'tweary walkers" sat down to an excellent dinner served by the Ladies' Relief Corps, Ladies' Auxiliary and the Daughters of Veterans.

The Sena- tor was more than middle-aged and considerably more than fat, and, dearly as the Major loved him, he also loved his joke. - The Senator turned with a pleased expression on his benign countenance and said: "Major, did you see -that pretty girl smile at me?" b "Oh, that's nothing," replied his friend. "The first time I saw you I laughed out loud!" - Most of us think we will leave a big hole -behind us when we go, but lt's just like taking your thumb out of a bowl of soup. There isn't even a dent.

Different members have helped the cause along by the sale of groceries. In April, a moving picture reel, "The Hound ot the Baskervilles," was given in Armory Hall, and quite a sum was realizeds In May a doughnut sale was held in Ames store by some of the girls. This, also, was quite a financial suc- cess. In addition, the Club held a dance in Assembly hall, which was a social success. There is a Plan to have a barn party, ln the near future at the home of Miss Eva MacAnany, Dunck- lee avenue. These things look hope- ful for the Club and it ls earnestly hoped that all who can will help to carry out the plan of the workers. Kerwin in French-Savez-vous Qu'il pleut?

Heard in English. "Well Silas Marner didn't have any early life any- way." . One day in Latin Hamill told us of some of Caesar's conquered people who implored with their hands. We certainly think Carol had tried to copy them, for he and Keenan have a won- derful sign language. Stevens seems to be really inter- ested in high class poetry. One day he quoted one of his favorites in our English class. In summer when the breezes Blows through the treeses, Tl1en's when the heses Walk with the sheses. Keenan seems to have a vision of his own of Anthony's famous speech. Anthony says that Caesar was am- bitious and Antony was an honorable man and so on until our English teacher tired of Antony's praises for himself. Heard in French. "Louis XIII. was crowned in the days of Noah." Why was Miss S- spellbound when asked the kind of nouns? Why may- be she recalled a little incident in English that morning when she illus- trated the diierence in abstracted and concreted nouns.

The Juniors are so naughty and the Sophomores are so goody that Miss Hutchinson spends most of her time in the back of the room. Will some kind soul please furnish some device to help Arthur stand right in Latin? Milliard certainly takes to dead animals, doesn't he? , 1918 Gerrish was putting and example on the board in algebra when Miss Sh- said, "Gerrish, step to one side, your head is so thick I can't see through it."

One is that they haven't any mind, the other that they l1aven't any busi- ness. Between seeing a chance and seiz- ing a chance, there's the same differ- ence as looking at the clock and get- ting up. Never stretch the truth, the recoil is apt to sting. You cannot save time collection cal- endars. Many a man has a promising fu- ture before him all his life.
