You are a strange scholar if you haven’t for all of us have at some time or other. Probably you di- vide teachers into two groups, those that you like, and those that you don’t like. Did you ever stop to think why you liked or didn’t like a teacher? Perhaps you think that you like a cer- tain one because you can do just as you please in her classes, but do you really like and respect her, just be- cause, to use slang, she lets you, and the rest of the class, “walk all over her”. I have used the pronoun “her”, you notice, because it is seldom that a man will, if he is a man, stand for any such proceedings. Some teachers man- age their classes without any trouble at all. They treat their pupils like hu- mans and not as mere deskfillers. They manage their classes because their pu- pils love and respect them. Other teachers seemingly manage their class- es easily, but it is simply because the pupils are afraid of them. This feel- ing of fear for a teacher drives out all respect and makes it hard for the pu- pil to learn the subject which this teacher is trying to register on a pu- pil’s brain by force instead of reason. The teacher whom everyone abhors is the one who has a habit of creeping around the room, or creeping about the halls, spying on everyone whether it is his or her business to do so or not. After a while we notice a crafty, hate- ful look which is perpetually register- ed on his or her face. I think that the teacher who suspects the pupils of ev- erything from low to high crimes are people who themselves can stand watch- ing and who could not be trusted very far. The teachers whom we all love, re- spect, and in whose classes we are proud to be, are those who treat us like human beings, who are willing to help us, who never suspect or accuse with- out first finding proof, who correct our errors by showing us kindly, how and why, we are w T rong and who have some remembrance of the fact that they w-ere young and went to school once, themselves. F. E. K., 24. jSctjoxrl ;I3ags Jcrl CESsartlg Wc t Sappiest Realization of good things come when w e fail to possess them any long- er. All the members of the Senior class are drawing near such a period and most of them know it. The pleasures of school life are especially keen in the fourth year of one’s high school car- eer, and it is not without regret that we give them up. Yet the matter should not cause the concern that it does; our lives at college or as workers can be as enjoyable and as companion- able if we make them so. Thomas Bailey Aldrich doubted the statement “that school days are the happiest days,” and his school career was cer- tainly filled with good things. Let the present pleasures be enjoyed and upon leaving let all Seniors be thank- ful that they have had a happy school life; but above all should they remem- ber that life out of schoo l may be in every way as pleasurable if it is made so — and the making is up to us. “Jic ©jat fcniutreth ®n (Tltc ftth” More and more we come to realize how hard it is to endure until the very end. W(hen all the outer world is call- ing, and the sun seems to drive away all our knowledge, our minds are any- 4 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC •where but ©n our books, and a constant reminder of our duty is necessary from our officers of discipline. Especially our last week, when lessons are just as important as any other time, are we inclined to think that school is really over (just for the collecting of books, you know). So keep up your courage and make the last days of the school year the most profitable ever spent, for “he that endureth to the end, shall re- ceive a due reward.” M. M. P., ’24. Jittck (3ft School is almost finished, and those pesky exams are over, and now, more than any other time in the year, there is that tendency to let things slide a little and not to put so much effort into work. We know how it is; we’ve felt that way ourselves, it is easy to say “Well the exams are over and I am not going to study any more. I won’t get any credit for it anyhow. The deuce with it.” We admit your average for the term may not be ma- terially changed, but then marks aren’t the only thing we’re after; who’ll care ten years from now whether you got A or B in Spanish or Physics. It isn’t the mark that counts ; it’s how much you keep under your hat. It is an es- tablished fact that every day spent in school nets that person nine dollars and some odd cents, and you can collect your nine dollars whether you get any marks or not. Nine dollars is worth nine dollars in June, just as much as it is in January, so stick to it, you’ll find it pays in the long run. J. J. W., ’24 penrium Co-operation is the key to almost any kind of work or play. In large business firms such as Jordan Marsh and Filene’s, if the workers did not co-operate and work together, the busi- ness would not be worth much to the owner. When a baseball team is play- ing if the players do not co-operate, the team presents the appearance of a one-man team. If co-operation is used in every-day life, we benefit by it greatly and especially in school, we ought to learn the lesson of co-opera- tion between student and teacher, for it is by these lessons learned during school life that we mould our future destiny. Therefore, fellow students, question yourselves — have you proper- ly learned the meaning of the term co- operation and employed it to its full- est extent? E. K. P., ’24. PHjat (3fs ' ffizdnotizm? Patriotism is a word that everyone has heard repeated over and over again in the last few years. But what does it mean to show patriotism and to be patriotic? A true patriot is one who lives an everyday life that is a credit to his country, who develops his mind to the best of his ability, who keeps his health up to standard, and never, for one mo- ment, forgets what he owes to God. Anyone who fails to live up to those ideals is a slacker. A person who goes to Washington’s monument on February 22nd and lays a wreath at the foot of it, is not always a patriotic one. If after that is over, he or she should do some harmful thing that lowers the mind and body standard, they are not patriots. Any woman, yes, and any man who indulges in a habit that does injury to the health, blunts the mind, and dwarfs the spiritual nature, curbs his or her usefulness as a citizen of the country, is to that extent a slacker. Patriotism is more than an emer- gency or holiday affair. It is living a life in the home, the school, the office and on the farm that measures up to the highest physical, moral and spirit- ual standards. A young man was wheeling a go-cart to and fro in front of his home. He looked hot, but contented. “My dear!” came a voice from an upper window of the house. “Now let me alone!” he called back. “We’re all right.” An hour later the same voice in ear- nest pleading tones: “Arthur, dear!” “Well, what do you want?” he re- sponded. “You’ve been wheeling Dora’s doll all afternoon. Isn’t it time for the baby to have a turn?” 5 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC 3)n ©ranstium” Herman JL Ricketts, ,3jtrsi Jfottor The prospect of a cold and fuelless winter of factories silent because of no coal, of a general lack of all the ne- cessities of life, was impressed upon j the American people by the continua- j tion of the coal strike and the railroad strike of last summer. Then people real- ized for the first time how utterly de- I pendent modern society has become ! upon the primary resources of power. Modern civilization, with its social life, industries, transportation and commerce, depends for its continuance and expansion mainly upon coal. Until recently not much thought had been given to the railroads as more than an important industry. All of a sudden the great war — that rude awak- ener of sleeping forces — jarred into consciousness the snug indifference of I the masses. The American people have j learned the lesson of the indispensabil- i ity of the railroads of national pros- j perity. They arc now giving heed to j the fact that transportation is the one J industry of all industries which cuts its figure in the daily life, the comfort, the wealth, and the well being of every individual in America. Now, as never before, the railroads, the arteries through which that life- blood of American industry — coal — must pass, have been brought to the attention of the people. Realization of the seriousness of the situation has caused a radical change in the attitude of the public since the car shortage last year alone caused American farmers to suffer a loss of $400,000,000. The lack of transportation in any country would act as a perpetual han- dicap to its development and expan- sion, for unless transportation is avail- able, no country can hope to success- fully market the fruits of its skilled labor and inventions. Indifference has been replaced by fear for the future prosperity of American industry. Out of our fear for the destiny of civilization in the face of an exhaus- tion of the coal supply comes the au- thentic statement from the U. S. Geo- logical survey that properly utilized there is enough coal in American fields to supply present demands for the next 1 57.000 years. And the railroads that are today so inadequate were for over ; half a century in advance of the de- mand placed upon them. What, then, is that formidable drag- on that defies government and the gen- eral public alike, and with its hand at the throat of American industry uses the power of threat for its own ends. As we think of the transportation sit- uation, we also think of the shopman’s strike ; a thought of the coal shortage brings to mind the strike of the an- thracite operators of last summer; and then conies the answer to our question, the strike menace. President Harding made this statement in his message to Congress on August 18, “That the simple but significant truth is revealed that the country is at the mercy of the United Miue Workers of America.” He might well have made a similar state- ment in regard to the railroad shop- men. It is not the place here to enter into any discussion of the right of labor to organize and to strike for its demands. The biggest problems in the world to- day is not how to crush and destroy organized labor, but how to avert and restrain its excesses. I cherish no hos- tility for capital, no enmity to labor. The railroad is an engine of civiliza- tion, and coal is a national asset, and not a private property. The simple truth is that the deep irritation of la- bor is a social fact to be dealt with. 6 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Industry must be managed in the pub- lic interest. When the struggle be- tween capital and labor hampers the progress of two public utilities essen- tial as coal and transportation the pub- lic is gouged to pay the cost. In the case of coal and transportation, strikes are formidable physical forces approxi- mating civil war. As a matter of fact, the strike is a blockade, and the block- ade is recognized as one of the most effective instruments of war. The sys- tem of making war with the public to settle controversies with the railroads and coal operators is politically, social- ly, and economically unsound. To tol- erate private control of a commodity as essential as coal is like permitting individuals to regulate the city water supply. How much longer shall such industrial autocrats be given power over a vital public utility. The strike is war — war of the most atrocious kind — and war must cease. It is not creditable to our govern- ment if a condition so fraught with possibilities of industrial disturbance and political revolution is permitted to survive. The 110,000,000 people in this country are as a matter of right en- titled to efficient and fair-priced rail- road transportation, and as a matter of self-preservation they must have it. When the governors of five different states have urged the President to take over coal carriers and if necessary the coal mines, it is evidence both of the serious effects of the coal and railway strikes and of the steady trend of pub- lic opinion toward what a little while ago was regarded as unthinkable rad- icalism. Behind this movement lies not socialistic theorizing but the pres- sure of facts. The advent of govern- ment regulation of the coal mines and railroads is rapidly approaching. The American citizen must be protected by government action from that deadly weapon of labor called the strike. The stage of American industry is a devastated battle field. On th e one side Capital, in its selfish strife for profits, directs its fire on the other side at labor, with its waring demands for wages and conditions. Between the two firing lines stand the American people. It is to the government that the American people turn for deliver- ance . The conventional government ownership and operation will never suf- fice. The kind of national ownership which is hopeful is one in which the government will own the roads and mines; put its credit behind the hir- ing of capital; and turn them over to a democratic administration by repre- sentatives of experts, the workers and the consuming public. Such a program and only such a program affords the hope of substituting for the present strife of owners for profits, of consum- ers for low price and service, and work- ers for high wages; a constructive and creative control of essential industry for which all parties interested have a definite responsibility. Congress has time and again asserted its power over interstate commerce to protect the public against imposition on the part of railway managements, and the supreme court has upheld such legislation. By this same token, Con- gress may intervene with statuary en- actments requiring railroad employees to refrain from interruption of inter- state commerce and destruction of the property and lives of the people. La- bor must understand that no organiza- tion to which he may belong would be permitted to aspire to wage civil war on society and enthrone anarchy in our republic. The transference of the control of coal and transportation will not come as a sudden realization of a dream. American affairs are not conducted as in Russia, where the present order may be overthrown and new institutions created by a single revolution. Ameri- ca is a land of gradual changes and slow evolution but never of revolution. We are living today in the dawn of the age of the government regulation of essential industries — America Is In Transition. All this, of course, is a dream of the future but it is just such dreams that have made our railroads, developed our coal fields, given us the automobile and the radio, and created all that we are pleased to call modern civilization. “I wish I had a baby brother to wheel in my go-cart, mamma,” said small Elsie. “My dolls are always getting broken when it tips over.” — Boston Transcript. “Here’s a man who found nine pearls in an oyster stew. Wonderful, hey?” “Oh, fairly startling. I thought you were going to try to lead me to believe he found nine oysters.” 7 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC mg (Sin ' ' Jfraittcs JH. be Oirucljg, eccmb Mmunr Adjusting a set of earphones, the radio fan seats himself in his favorite armchair, turns a little black knob on a neat looking cabinet filled with tubes and coils and listens in. Tuning in is little less complicated than running an automobile and not much more so than lifting a telephone receiver off the hook. At various central points in the coun- try there are broadcasting stations which send out programs of news, mu- sic, entertainment, and instruction, either daily or two or three times a week. The Eastern territory has more stations than the rest of the country, but there is probably no home in the United States so remote, that with a really good receiving set it cannot hear one or more broadcasting stations. Such a home gains a liberal education, a higher appreciation of good music, a cultivation of the dramatic senses, and a clearer knowledge of the current events. Even the traveller, who has hitherto been obliged to admit that the world was getting along without him, at least between stations, listens in and re- ceives entertainment and up-to-the- minute news, as well as reading maga- zines and looking at the rapidly pass- ing landscape. He it is who will profit by the freak radios in the forms of finger-ring phones, radio-equipped um- brellas, and sets confined within the dimensions of an ordinary safety- match box. But the whole duty of the radio is not to give pleasure. Besides bringing happiness to the farmer, it is also of great practical value in giving him weather reports and talks by agricul- tural experts. The business man re- ceives market quotations daily, as mer- chants have found it possible to broad- cast them at no increased cost. Bul- letin reports are also received from the leading newspaper establishments which hope to excite interest, thereby increasing their circulation. The speeches of candidates for political of- fices are heard by a vast unseen au- dience as it tunes in from all sections of the land. Churches and colleges are using radio as a means or broadcasting messages to a larger audience than could ever gather under one roof. Ra- dio also serves to help preserve lives and protect property. Bands of wave lengths have been re- served by the Government for receiv- ing messages from ships at sea, and for police purposes. A criminal will have little chance to escape when a com- plete description can be carried in- stantly by the human voice into every police station in the country. Fire boats in Boston Harbor will be able, with the aid of radio sets soon to be installed, to fight fires along the water front more efficiently, since messages may be transmitted to and from land with such great rapidity. Picture a large Government hospital in which are hundreds of tubercular, gassed, and wounded veterans of the World War. In one large, sunny room lies an emaciated young man with deep set blue eyes and hollow cheeks. Fitted over his black hair is a set of ear- phones, while on the table beside the bed stands a receiving set. Gradually a smile creeps over the boy’s face as he recognizes the voice of a popular comedian giving one of his vaudeville sketches. Then follow baseball scores, police news, and the latest popular mu- sic. Think what radio does for that boy to make his last days brighter! Doctors state that it is invaluable in distracting the minds of the patients from themselves, and in hastening re- covery. Since no effort is required on the part of the patient to enjoy the program, the radiophone greatly re- lieves the monotony of hospital rou- tine, bringing joy in place of loneli- ness, and peace instead of pain. That radio is here to stay is best proved by the letters that come pour- into the broadcasting stations from lonely men and women in remote cor- ners of the land. Radio clearly illus- trates the folly of ever saying, in this world of infinite ingenuity and brains, “It can’t be done.” Every step in its progress has been delayed by the wise old prophets of gloom who stood on the sidelines and shook their heads. Yet the steps have been taken, and men who are in a position to look farthest ahead know that only a beginning has been made. Who can tell what addi- tional pleasures and benefits the fu- ture holds in store? The facts of to- day were but the fantasies of yester- day. 8 HOCKEY TEAM, STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC of fl }t JWoplmte” •jdrestrm axfuell Who, was the first conquerer of the air? The man’s name is unknown to most people and does not really mat- ter, but it is interesting to know that as early as 1500 a Frenchman, Jean Dante by name, constructed a glider with which he made several successful flights. There followed a few unsuc- cessful attempts to make and fly glid- ers in which one man using a glider with movable " wings, fell into the Seine Elver when his wings failed to act. Then came the theory, in 1809, on which all our modern aeroplanes are built. It seems remarkable that Sir George Cayley who had never seen a heavier-tlian-air machine fly, had the initiative and boldness to state that such a thing was possible and then pro- ceeded to tell how. But as usual the discovery of the great things of life is left to those who have the necessary attributes and are not afraid to tread where others have feared to go. In 1810 an Englishman gave the first 1 proof of Cayley’s theory when he built an aeroplane using a steam engine to furnish its motive power, a remarkable thing, since at the present time we would not think of an aeroplane with- out a gasoline engine. Following this, many men interested in flying investi- gated different problems of the aero- plane. Among them was a man who probably contributed more than any other individual toward its perfection. Samuel Langley, a professor at the Smithsonian Institute, was the first real scientist to study the aeroplane, and it was he who laid the scientific foundation for the heavier-than-air machine by first working out his ideas in a laboratory and subsequently ap- plying them to models, in which he also installed steam engines of his own design. One of these models flew a distance of about 3-4 of a mile and descended without being injured. It is important for us to remember that Langley was to the aeroplane what Fulton was to the steamboat, and Stephenson was to the locomotive. Langley later made a “man-carrying- areodrome” which was twice wrecked while being launched, and abandoned until 1915, when Glen Curtiss flew it successfully without making any changes in its construction. While Langley was experimenting, Hiram Maxim, who usually is associat- ed with guns and explosives, devised a machine which had a lifting power of 3000 pounds and in which was installed a steam engine of his own design -which delivered 360 horsepower. This ma- chine cost $100,000 to build, and when it was wrecked " while would-be pilots were learning to operate it, Maxim dis- covered he did not have enough money to construct another model. In reviewing all these experiments, we are impressed with the fact that no aeroplane could be successful and carry the heavy cumbersome steam engine, at that time the only motive power. It remained for the gasoline engine to supply the light-weight source of pow- er that made the aeroplane possible. In the meantime Otto Lilienthal, a wealthy German, became interested in aeronautics. The first result was his motto, so true even today, “To contrive is nothing, to construct is something, to operate is everything,” and he be- gan operating at once. He designed a method of stabilizing the machine, in which he used his legs to good advan- tage in securing lateral control. It has been said that Lilienthal’s legs were of more help to the development of flying than his brains, and even his legs were insufficient for lateral control. Lilienthal’s experiments gave the Wright brothers much to think about. They decided that in order to produce a successful aeroplane it was necessary to construct one that would maintain three long years of heart breaking la- bor, during which they were almost discouraged by several failures, they at last attained the thing for which they had striven so long. On December 17, 1905, the Wright brothers using a bi- plane glider driven by a 16 horse pow- er gasoline motor, both of their own construction, made several successful flights. The last one, which was made by Orville, being recognized as the World’s first successful, sustained flight. He travelled 852 feet in the air, at a rate of about thirty miles an hour, for 59 seconds. Although this was a crude machine, little progress towards its perfection was made until the World War brought its demands. It seemed that overnight THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC thousands of aircraft were built, and as many men trained to fly them. Fly- ing Corps -were added to armies and navies and the perfection of the aero- plane advanced daily. But all this phenomenal progress was along the wrong lines; that is, it tended to make the aeroplane a menace to man and his possessions. The flying machine is now undergo- ing a transformation. As the cannon were recast to make plowshares, so shall the aeroplane be changed from a weapon to a useful machine. At the present time it is used to locate forest fires, carry mails, and people on regu- lar schedules and to destroy insect pests. Who can predict how far the possibilities of the aeroplane may stretch! Suffice it to say that the fu- ture of the aeroplane offers the great- est field to young America since the invention of the railroad. P. E.

The mur- muring pines and the hemloeks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight, Stand like Druids of old, with voices sad and prophetic, Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.” — Longfellow Truly Hemlock Hill, in the southern part of the Arnold Arboretum, old at the time of the Pilgrims, is a remnant of that “forest primeval.” As we stand beneath its grandeur we feel the in- significance of our short lives. This ancient wood was once a part of a large farm belonging to Benjamin Bussey, a soldier of the Revolution. At his death the farm came into the pos- session of Harvard College to be used for arboricultural and agricultural purposes. Thus the oldest college re- ceived a wonderful gift in this beau- tiful farm with its trees and waving meadows. Later Mr. James Arnold, a Quaker of New Bedford, bequeathed a hundred thousand dollars to the trustees of his estate to be used for the same purpose. One of the trustees, was Mr. George B. Emerson, a lover of trees, who knew of Mr. Bussey’s fine old estate. In 1872 he arranged an agreement between Harvard and the trustees thru which the Arnold Arboretum was founded on Bussey’s farm with Mr. Arnold’s money. A few years later this museum of living things settled its roots with a sigh of content when the City of Bos- ton established the Arnold Arboretum forever. For Boston, wishing to make the Arboretum a public park, took con- trol of it by right of eminent domain. It added adjoining lands, made roads, and leased the entire property to Har- vard University for one thousand years. At the end of this time, 2882, Harvard may renew the lease. How wonderfully old some of those trees will be then! I wonder how many of the Hemlocks will still be living. In Syria there grows the Lebanon j Cedar which after many experiments has been successfully grown here in Jamaica Plain. How lovely those ce- dars will be at the end of the thousand years! I should like to see their knarled old trunks and their matted branches at that time. For the branch- es of the Lebanon Cedar are accus- tomed to grow so thickly together that when the trees are very old four or five people may sometimes stand on the top of one of them. Knowing that this tree and others as strange have been brought to the Ar- nold Arboretum, we understand the real purpose in founding a place of this kind, which has grown to be the largest in the world.. Dr. Charles Sprague Sargent, pro- fessor of aboriculture at Harvard and who may be called the father of the Arboretum, is trying to have in his great garden, all the hardy trees and shrubs which will stand the climate of New England. Explorers go every- where to bring back seeds or slips from which to grow mighty oaks or wonderful shrubs. From Japan they bring back the cherry trees with their heavily scented blossoms; from Japan, too, comes the crab apple tree blooming in all its glory just at lilac-time. Imagine an ordinary crab apple tree completely covered with delicately tinted roses, — picture a steep green hill for the back- ground and you have one of the most 10 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC beautiful sights in the Arboretum. From China, Mr. Wilson, one of the Arboretum’s chief explorers, brought back the lacquer tree. This tree, a kind of sumae, is very poisonous; but the Chinese extract the black sap and use it as a varnish in their famous lacquer work. Another tree from China, from which we obtain the wood-oil is growing here. Wood-oil is similar to linseed oil but is much finer and is an important pro- duct of China. In bringing trees of this kind to the United States, the Arboretum has made the fortune of many a gardener and has even made merchants look toward its gates. So many other trees and shrubs have their stories to tell! A certain small ash tree which, in August, has its branches covered with a snow-white, waxy substance; a specimen of the only hardy rubber tree in the wide world; beautiful wild peonies from China; and expuisite white creeping roses from Germany; Chinese clematis; in fact the Arboretum is filled with unexpected and rare beauties, placed there for the benefit of not only landscape garden- ers and botanical experts, but for the pleasure of all nature lovers. And so, I hope that many of you will go there; and that you, too, may late in the afternoon make your way over Bussey Hill past the bank of lilacs al- ready a hundred years old; past the Lebanon Cedars down amid the bright blossoms of the azaleas; then, look, — there at your feet that gorge-like val- ley stretching between you and Hem- lock Hill; the slanting rays of the sun just touch the rose-red and the white blossoms of the Laurel and the Rhodo- dendrons. In their midst the clear waters of Bussey Brook bubble over the pebbles; above, Hemlock Hill rises in stern majesty, flecked with gold from the setting sun; the silence makes one say again with Joyce Kilmer: I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast ; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robbins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain ; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me. But only God can make a tree. “Practical Jalac of JC. dierrtslj Latin is generally conceded by the popular mass to have no practical value and is commonly supposed to be a ne- cessary evil to be undergone if one wishes to enter college. I shall en- deavor to point out certain specific values the study of Latin holds for one who pursues it. The study of Latin quickens the hab- its of observation of the student and above all teaches him to concentrate. It increases his English vocabulary and enables him to tell the meanings of words in his own language that he never would be able to understand otherwise. What I consider the strong- est argument for the study of Latin in the schools is the fact that 89% of our English words are derived from Latin and by the study of this language we are able to understand English as in no other way. Especially are we able to grasp the meaning of new words and this fact alone should encourage us to study Latin. A Latin student never makes mistakes in spelling which a non-Latin student makes. Moreover, today the best Latin teachers do not claim to teach Latin but English via Latin. Hence we should obtain the best Latin instructors as an aid to our English department. Latin also gives a student an understanding of the grammar of his own language through the study of the structure of the sen- tence. It is said that Latin is antiquated and out of touch with the present. Some people think that Latin is just made up of declensions of nouns and and conjugations of verbs, which is not so; because some of the finest literature the world has ever produced or ever will produce has been handed down to us from the Latin writers. Homer, Dante, Cicero and Virgil will always hold their place among the immortals. Hence I ask you, why should we not 11 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC read their writings? When reading Caesar we enjoyed descriptions of those wonderful wars and learned that trench warfare was used in antiquity. Therefore, I ask you, what is there which has not been handed down to us from the Latins, when even Chris- tian Science was practised in Roman times. What more wonderful piece of ora- tory has the world ever listened to than when Cicero delivered that fa- mous oration against Cataline in the senate as he said, “Quo usque tandem abutere, patientia nostra? Quam diu etiam furor iste tuus nos eludet? Quern ad finem sese effrenata iaetabit auda- cia? Quid proxima, quid superioris egeris, ubi fueris, quos conoocaveris, quid consil ceperis, quern nostrum ig- norare arbitraris? O tempora, O mores! Senatus haec intelligit, consul videt; hie tamen vivit.” To read Vir- gil is to enjoy a beautiful epic, one of the finest of its types. Can we ever forget Virgil’s descent to Hades " when he discloses before our eyes our future habitation, Facilis descensus Averni. Virgil was one of the chosen few to visit those realms and return, alas, how many of us will be able to do like- wise? Can we forget the first time in geom- etry we saw Q. E. D. which was merely the Latin phrase, “Quod erat demon- strandum,” meaning, what must be proved? To our Latin student subway via Park street merely means by way of — Juvenal’s mens sana in corpore sano, is still true today, “what availeth a sound mind in a weak body.” It is also said that “Latin is no long- er a spoken language.” Neither is the language of Chaucer or Shakespeare spoken at present, but that does not retard our interest in these authors. The argument is also introduced that “Latin is too hard.” I will admit that it is difficult but not too hard. A boy must undergo strenuous training to be- come an athlete, therefore I argue, that his mind should undergo stren- uous training for development. The argument is also brought for- ward “that many students dislike Latin.” Possibly this is the fault of study in early years or poor instruc- tions — but generally the students who dislike Latin are not enthusiastic about other branches of learning. Possibly application to a hard, disagreeable task will fit him for the duties of la- ter life. Again it is said that four years is too long a time to give to a subject. A strong structure requires a strong foun- dation and to lay such a foundation takes time. If boys who are too anx- ious to get out into the world, would devote more of their time to serious study they would become better men in the future. Often one hears that other subjects in the curriculum are of greater value than Latin. It may be true, but the training in other subjects does not give him the concentration and memory for future use that Latin would have giv- en him. For it is conceded by the au- thorities in education that Latin is a greater brain trainer than mathemat- ics. To support this argument I bring forward the fact that in. the schools of New York, New Jersey and in other states, Latin is a required subject for two years and in a commercial depart- ment the Latin is studied as Vocation- al Latin. This is merely English taught via Latin as the derivation of words are taken up and the student learns the basic meaning and the correct spelling of various words. The ordinary stenographer of today because of her lack of knowledge of English is more of a liability than an asset. These mis- takes ean all be obviated by the study of Latin. Now, therefore, because of the rea- sons I have stated I hope you will agree with me that Latin is not out of touch with the present; is not too hard; it is not a dead language; and above all it is not dying out in our schools but increasing in strength and should be required here in our school in all courses. Now I hope I may use that famous Latin phrase of Caesar’s “Veni, Vidi, Vici,” and that henceforth you will all be upholders and devotees of the Latin language. “Pax vobiscum sempitern- um. — Vale, amici mei.” “You seem able-bodied and healthy; you ought to be strong enough to work,” she remarked, scrutinizingly. “Yes ma’am, I know. And you seem beautiful enough to be on the stage, but evidently you prefer the simple life” He got a square meal without any further reference to work. 12 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC “®nt Cans” ' Jlefcria iHnxfoell We pride ourselves in the great strides which this country has taken in the advancement of scientific agricul- ture during the past half century. We read in the papers that Delaware pro- duced an immense crop of peaches last year. We hear that Iowa has exceeded all previous outputs of corn; that the tomato crop was enormous in a certa in section of the country and that all oth- er crops were correspondingly large. All this is due of course to the effi- cient farm machinery which science has evolved, the modern irrigation sys- tems, and the care with which the soils are chosen. Science has given the far- mer many labor saving devices which increase speed of production. It has also taught the farmer to use care in choosing the crops he will raise in a given section of the country, and that these crops will grow with better re- sults on a certain type of soil in that locality. Now this gigantic output of fruits and vegetables, which science has made possible, far exceeds the demand at the time of production. A small proportion of the fresh pTO- dufce is shipped in refrigerator cars and consumed directly but the re- mainder of these perishable crops must be conserved for later use. The oldest method of preservation now in use is that of drying. This method is tedious, unsanitary and re- stricted to a few fruits. Another method of preservation is cold storage which is limited to meats, eggs and a few fruits such as apples and pears. The third method of preservation is canning. This process of preservation may be employed with practically all forms of perishable food. Canning in the home is generally on too small a scale to be economically important. The tin can is superior to the glass jar in commercial canning as it is cheaper, lighter, unbreakable, and easy to seal. In the canning of food on a large scale it is possible to select the best of products and at their prime. Not only is commercial canning superior in this way but also these fine products are canned by skilled workers with scientists to superintend their actions. For these three reasons the tinned goods one buys are superior to those put up at home. The tin can brings to us delicacies from foreign lands which it would be impossible for us to obtain fresh at any time at home. It brings to us in the winter season such things as blueberries, corn, peas and string-beans which take from our winter diet that monotony with which it would otherwise be characterized. Apart from the luxurious side of the tin can’s use in furnishing us with the means of pleasing the palate out of season; and neglecting its financial and economic benefit to the farmer and the nation we must consider the part it plays in the life of those who are se- parated from the world’s marts. Campers, explorers, mariners, and soldiers all owe much comfort to the tin can. A lover of nature may now go into the wilds taking with him all the var- iety of food he would have at home. Extensive exploring is now made more feasible through the use of the tin can. Necessities such as meat, milk and vegetables are carried in this very compact and permanent form. The tin can during the World Con- flict, played a part far more important than rifles or ammunition. The United States Army and Navy used millions of cans of food during the time the Unit- ed States was engaged in war. If the world had been deprived of this means of preserving supplies it is doubtful whether the war Avould have ended in favor of the Allies. Under the condi- tions in France fresh food in any large quantity would have soon spoiled. So it is evident that along with the reaper, the silo and the tractor stands the tin can as an important national food factor. An Emporia school nurse was telling a health story to a first-grade class. “Now what,” she asked in review of the story, “was the name of the good fairy who was dressed all in white?” For a moment the class was silent, then a little colored boy answered hopefully, “Ku Klux?” 13 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Nearly all the large states of our country are protected by some form of constabulary. Our state has just formed one of these small armies to protect us from the bootleggers which have started a great liquor traffic be- tween Ncav York and Massachusetts. Pete Melley, one of the best troopers on the force, patrolled the territory which links us with New York. He was on duty from ten p. m. to five a. m. This district was overloaded with boot- leggers, but to catch them was beyond the power of the state’s experts. This was the reason that Pete was assigned to patrol this territory during the late hours, which were best for the boot- leggers to transport their liquor. Pete had served twenty-two months in France with the U. S. Army during the World War. He had been dis- charged from the service of his coun- try with a record that would have been a credit to any man. He had received three war medals for bravery in bat- tles in which he participated. This new assignment more than pleased him because excitement was his hobby. To kill a man was an every day occur- rence, so Pete was right at home with a “forty-five” waiting for some unfor- tunate bootlegger. Pete had been on the job about six weeks, but liquor was coming in as fast as ever. When he was called before his superior officer to report on what he ran across during the hours he was on duty, he said he had held up many cars, which traveled over his route dur- ing the night, but never found any- thing. The superior officer was very angry to think that some smooth boot- legger was putting it over him and his men. Pete also was disquieted to think that he couldn’t catch them. So he asked for a leave of ten days, promis- ing to bring back one bootlegger dead or alive. The next morning he started out on his journey and struck into the hills which overlooked the camp border. He was dressed as a common woodsman so as not to betray himself. The first night he put up with a lone woodsman, but couldn’t get any information from him. For six days and nights he tramped through the woods. He hadn’t met a soul for four days, and his food was all gone. He was tired and hun- gry, so he dropped down upon some foliage, and thought of what a fool he had been to make such a promise. He soon fell asleep on the side of a hill which overlooked the Connecticut Riv- er. The next morning he awoke about five-thirty, and to his surprise saw a lumber camp located on the bank of the river. His first thought was to get something to eat, and as he had re- covered some strength from his sleep, he scrambled down the hill to the camp. He was greeted at the entrance by a half-breed who was lying in the bush- es on guard. The guard poked a shot gun up under his nose and asked him what he wanted. Pete laid a hand upon the guard’s shoulder and said “I will do anything for a bite to eat.” When he told the guard that he was a hunter who had lost his way and that he hadn’t eaten for four days. The guard led him to the kitchen where Pete put down a wonderful feed of meat, pota- toes and pie. After he had finished eating, he was brought before the boss of the camp, who put him through a third degree. Pete was given a job in the mill operating a large drill, which bored holes into the large logs. Pete wondered what these holes were for, and to satisfy his curiosity started a crusade. That night about twelve he was awakened by some noise in the cel- lar, the moving of barrels, the sound of running water and a great deal of conversation. He got up and found that all his brothers had left their bunks. This led him to do some search- ing, so he went out to the kitchen, and opening a trap door to the cellar, was greeted by an unmistakable odor. He had not removed any clothing ex- cept his shoes, so he was all ready to make his investigation. Going outside, he saw four or five men walk toward the mill, with the goods. He followed them, watching them closely. On en- tering the mill he saw two men at work under a lantern, busily packing the liquor which was in gallon cans of cylindrical shape, into the holes which he had bored. They first put the can in, packed around it with sawdust, then they lined the remainder of the hole with glue. Next a post was forced in by a pile driver, to block up the hole and conceal the can. When the logs were ready they were roll ed into the river to be carried down into the state 14 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC of Massachusetts. Pete had discovered one of the best tricks of one of the best and smooth- est bootleggers. He returned to his bunk as if nothing had happened and retired for the night. The next morning just before day break he arose, taking enough food for three days and started on his home- ward trip. He travelled fast, sleeping only a few hours each night because he knew that he must reach headquar- ters before any more liquor was smug- gled in. He made it in three days and three nights and when he reached the camp, was all in. He reached the camp just after dusk, and entered unknown to any one. He went directly to headquarters and told his story. Pete gave the location of the place to his superior, who found it on the map and said it was in N. Y. But all the liquor was being shipped down to our state to be sold. So all the logs which came down the river were put under close guard and 5,000 gallons of booze were removed from them. The location of the camp was given to the constabulary of New York who cleaned it up, and Pete Mjelley, the boy whom all bootleggers fear, will be called Sergeant Melley from now on. B.

Mr. T. — I’m glad we don’t have a banquet every day in the week. D. Metchear — It isn’t the fault of the banquet, it’s the weather. Mr. T. — Well, what do you think of us poor men who have to wear a coat? D. Metchear — Oh, that’s all right Mr. T., but I have a lot of hair on my head. Walter may be small but his capacity for water and food is not so small. Tuesday morning a few honored Seniors received mail from the Yen- dome. The rest of us feel slighted. The Banquet was greatly enjoyed by the seniors, and we hope by the chap- erons; the menu was excellent, the speeches were all entertaining, espe- cially the last one given by Murphy, and these were followed by dancing until 11.00. A few of the drivers received rolls, olives, radishes, etc., and one was even presented with a chicken bone. We never knew until the banquet what a good looking bunch we are and how much Mr. Thibodeau loves us. He even admitted it. The toastmaster, Victor Duplin, pre- sided very admirably; we wonder why he didn’t take up that little remark of Murphy’s at that time? Miss Hale — What are you laughing at Murphy? Murphy — This thing in back of me (V. Duplin). In an English Intelligence Test Miss Hale required each one to give a four line quotation from any good author.

To obtain pos- session of this cup it was necessary to play a three-game series with our lead- ing rival, Reading, who was in a tie for first place with us. There is no reason why Stoneham should not do the same again this year. Stoneham got away to a poor start this year dropping the first game to Winchester, 6 to 5, and the second to Lawrence, 13 to 4. Since then, however, the team’s continued prac- tice together with Mr. Morrill’s coach- ing have shown good results. The team up to now has played 15 games, winning 11 and losing 4. This is a gopd average. They have won all their league games so far. The team’s average in the league is 1000. The summary of the games is as follows: Lawrence 13 — Stoneham 4 On Thursday, April .19, Stoneham journeyed to Lawrence and suffered their second setback of the season. Stoneham 28 — Saugus 17 On Saturday April 21, Stoneham en- tertained the Saugus nine in a great slugging contest. The Arlington-Stoneham game was called off because of the weather. Stoneham 9 — Wakefield 5 On May 2, Stoneham went to Wake- field and pinned a defeat on their old rival to the tune of 9 to 5. Stoneham 13 — Watertown 2 Stoneham High easily defeated Water- town High on the playground, Saturday, May 5. Vic Duplin twirled for the Stoneham boys and was very effective al- lowing the visitors 3 hits and fanning 9. He was given great support. The Duplin boys, Maxwell, Jackson and Ro- tundi led at the bat. Winchester 6 — Stoneham 4 For the second time this year Stone- ham suffered defeat at the hands of Winchester. Stoneham 16 — Lexington 9 On May 11th, Stoneham played Lexing- ton on the latter’s diamond and won the first league encounter, 16 to 9. Stoneham 7 — Belmont 2 Stoneham went to Belmont May 16, and romped away with their second league game. The final count was 7 to 2 . Stoneham H. S. 15, Melrose H. S. 11 Stoneham high won a hard fought up-hill battle from its old rivals, Mel- rose high, 15 to 11, on the playground last Saturday afternoon, in a game re- plete with thrills. The visitors piled up seven runs in the first and second innings, and looked like easy winners. Stoneham high rallied gamely in the fourth, breaking the ice with four tallies, and forged ahead in the fifth Avith four more. The sixth also A T as a productive inning for the Stoneham boys, and the score was 12 to 7 in their favor, Avhen Melrose staged a desper- ate rally in the 8th, and came within one run of tying the count. In Stone- ham high’s half of the 8th, however, a final cluster of three put the game on ice. Extra base hits featured the con- test, V. Duplin driving out a triple and Maxwell and Shaw connecting for cir- cuit drives. Maxwell, McAnaney and Shaw led the batting Avith three hits each. The game was a glorious vic- tory, and showed that the local school boys are game to the core. There was some great rooting during the ral- lies. The score : STONEHAM H. S. R. Duplin, s V.

Methuen High won from Stone- ham High 10 to 5 at Methuen Tues- day afternoon. The Stoneham boys started off like winners, scoring all their runs in the opening inning, and knocking Sontag, Methuen high’s star pitcher, out of the box. Templeman, who succeeded Sontag, stopped fur- ther run getting, although a threat- ening ninth inning rally was staged, only brilliant outfielding by the home nine preventing trouble. Duplin pitched well for Stoneham high, but was accorded poor support.

S. 2 With Yic Duplin pitching for Stone- ham and with good support behind him, it was an easy victory for our team. Cassidy, Lexington’s pitcher, twirled 8 strike-outs in three innings. The game tightens S. H. S.’s chances for the cup. If we beat Belmont and Reading it will be won. Jackson, Fallon and R. Duplin were the heavy hitters, R. Duplin get- ting five hits in six times at bat. Mac- Ananny was shifted from second to short and R« Duplin back on second wher e he played last year. The Stone- ham boys played heads up ball all the time and deserve credit for their work. The summary: Stoneham R. Duplin 2b V.

Stoneham High 7 — Watertown H 3 “Vic” Duplin held Watertown high to five hits and struck out 11 batsmen, pitching Stoneham High to a 7 to 3 victory over Watertown High at Water- town, Wednesday afternoon. With the exception of the 7th inning the Water- town High boys were powerless before his elusive delivery. Stoneham High batted and fielded in excellent form, outplaying its opponents in every de- partment of the game. The score: — Stoneham High E. Duplin 2b V.

Umpire, Ward. “Ma,” said little Ethel sleepily at two o’clock on a cold morning, “I want a drink.” “Hush, darling,” said her mother,, “turn over and go to sleep.” “But I want a drink.” “No, you are only restless. Turn over, dear and go to sleep.” Silence for five minutes. Then: “Ma r I want a drink.” “No, you don’t want a drink. You had one just before you went to bed.’ r “I want a drink.” “Lie still, Ethel, and go to sleep.” “But I want a drink.” “Don’t let me speak to you again.” Two minutes of silence. “Ma, I want a drink.” “If you say another word, I’ll get up and spank you.” “Ma, when you get up to spank me will you get me a drink?” She got the drink then. “Which is the way to Ottawa, my lad?” “I — I don’t know.” “Which is the way to Topeka, then?’ r “I— I don’t know.” “Well, can you tell me how to get back to Wichita, then?” “I — I don’t know.” By this time the drummer was quite impatient and said to the boy: “Say, you don’t know very much, do you?” to which the lad retorted: “No, but L ain’t lost!” — Judge. 21 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC The supply sergeant had just issued the last assortment of shoes to the col- ored outfit. There were plenty of kicks, but the loudest and most pro- longed came from Private Indigo Snow who, failing to receive satisfaction else- where, betook himself to the captain. “Cap’n, suh,” he announced, “mah shoes am too big fo’ me.” “You’ll have to make the best of it,” answered the captain. “Penty of men have shoes that don’t quite fit.” “Don’ quite fit!” ejaculated Indigo. “If yo’ says ’tenshun, cap’n, All comes to ’tenshun. Den if yo’ says to right about face Ah right about faces, but mah shoes stays at ’tenshun. Don’ quite fit? Huh!” It is said that most of Tokio’s crim- inals belong to the intellectual classes. When in Tokio, therefore, beware of the stranger who begins to quote poetry and Homer to you. The story is told that one of the ex- aminers in a certain school was ac- costed by the athletic coach. “If you please, sir,” he began, “there are two splendid fellows on the hockey team — ” “Now stop,” said the professor se- verely; “if you want to ask me to pass these boys who have flunked their ex- aminations just because they are good athletes, I refuse absolutey. There’s been — ” “No, sir, no, sir,” hurriedly inter- rupted the coach. “It’s just the other way. They’re such brilliant students that I wanted to beg you to make them flunk, so that we could keep them for another year.” The attorney for the gas company was making a popular address. “Think of the good the gas company has done!” he cried. “If I were permit- ted a pun, I would say in the words of the immortal poet, ‘Honor the Light Bri- gade’.” Voice of a consumer from the audi- ence. — “Oh, what a charge they made!” A pompous member of a traveling theatrical company was strutting up and down the station platform. A red- faced and perspiring man rushed up to him, clutched his arm, and asked, “Is this the Reading train?” The other removed his arm from the stranger’s grasp, and replied, frigidly, “My dear sir, I am not the station- master.” “Oh, aren’t you?” spluttered the hot j and hurried one. “Well, what the deuce : do you mean by strutting about as , though you were?” The mother had taken her daughter on a visit to a wealthy maiden aunt, from whom she had expectations. The old lady produced a number of photo- graphs of herself as a young woman, and showed them to her niece. “Oh, mother!” exclaimed the girl, art- lessly, “auntie looks quite pretty in | these photographs.” “Haven’t I always said she used to be, ! but you would never believe me,” said l her agitated mother. John was getting nervous as the doe- ! tor prepared to administer the anes- thetic. “Will it make me sick?” he asked. “Not a bit,” said the doctor, reassur- ingly. “How long will it be before I know anything?” he queried, as the mask was adjusted. “You’re asking a good deal of the ether,” was the doctor’s reply. A fond father discovered his son j reading a dime novel. “Unhand me, villain,” the detected I bov cried, “or there will be blood shed.” “No,” said the father grimly, tight- ening his hold on the boy’s collar, “not ; bloodshed, woodshed.” Teacher : “Where is your penwiper, Peter?” Peter: “I don’t know! I never use it j since I got my black suit.” Read “DESERT GOLD” in the Stoneham Free Press Get it from your news boy for three cents 22 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC The crabbed examiner glanced over the top of his spectacles. “Are you sure,” he said, “that this is an entirely original composition which you have handed in?” “Yes, sir,” came the answer. “But you may possibly, sir, have come across one or two of the words in the diction- ary.” Aunt Liza’s former mistress was talking to her one morning, when sud- denly she discovered a little pickaniny standing behind his mother’s skirts. “Is this your little boy Aunt Liza?” she asked. “Yes, miss, dat’s Prescription.” “Goodness, what a funny name, Auntie, for a child! How in the world did you happen to call him that?” “Ah simply calls him dat becauz Ah hdz sech hard vork gettin him filled.” Jim: “Teacher, Skinny’s cheating.” Teacher: “How, James?” Jim: “Well, in this physiology ques- tion of how many vertebrae we have he’s trying to count his.” COMPLIMENTS OF Sidney A.
