Prospectors came one day and discovered this copper. A mine was set up and I was unearthed and thrown into a freight car to- gether with many other lumps of ore. I en- joyed this ride which took me to a huge cop- per smelter. Here I suiered intense heat but came out pure Ia lump of pure copperl. I remained here a few days then, enjoyed another ride to a Washington mint. Here I was made into a bright, shining, new penny. On one side of me they stamped a picture of a man while 'on the other side they stamped a few letters. Next I found myself in a bank, then in the possession of a man. The man gave me to a. little boy, who, taking me into the palm of his hand went to a candy store. But I managed to slip out from between his fingers onto the sidewalk. If I had known what was to happen, I would never have done this, for I rolled straight into a water grate. And here I am! J. Y. '34 Showers! Hurray! At last we've got our 1ong-fought- for showers. With the aid of convincing es- says, help from the class of 1930 and the townspeople, and the help of the school in selling magazines we have 'at last got our showers. In 1928 the graduation speakers told the public of our need and desire for showers. This helped to start things. Then the class of 1930 left the Athletic Association some money to be used for showers. Since then one of our selectmen has given us a heater and with the help of the people either by do- nations or in subscriptions for the magazines which were sold this year to raise more money we succeeded in raising the amount necessary to install the showers. About three weeks ago we were able to take showers and the members of the girls' and boys' basketball teams found them very re- freshing after practice and after the games. We all appreciate the effort and Work which secured our showers for us. I. L. S. '31 , I Hobbies I There are many kinds of hpbbies, some in- teresting to a few, others disi terestlng. Some people make sports their hob ies: golf, tennis, baseball, football, soccer, swimming, basket- ball, fishing, racing and flying. Others turn to collecting: stamps, coins, Iautographsgpic- tures, flowers, souvenirs, first editions and spoons are illustrations along' this line. Many turn to horticulture for th ir hobbies. The growing of flowers, vegetabl S, and freaks of nature are a pleasure to the . Other groups enjoy hobbies of a. more ma ual type such as: carpenters, cabinet makers, nd machinists. Hobbies act as a diversion. Efhey help to pro- vide amusement and workIfor people when they have leisure time. A hobby is an inter- esting thing to have andI has educational value. Those. who begin hobbies become more and more interested in them and seek to cul- tivate the habit. I . J C. S. 0. '34 The Family Allium Every home has its family album, at least one, if not more. Some are two or three gen- erations old and others aref up to date. When a friend calls and conversation begins to lag, how often we dig 'out the family al- bum! We do not look at the faces and com- pare the likeness of great uncle John to John Junior, but we compare he styles in dress of the past and present. I The album is a relic of the time of our grandfathers and grandmothers. The long dresses with puffed slee es and hoop skirts, the high stiff collars thai the men and boys wore, greatly amuse us. IThe love stories of that generation have a great hold on our lm- agination, but don't all llove stories interest us? Life was not as easy and luxurious as some people think. If you woljld look closely at the faces that are portrayed in the family album you would notice that the womenihad patient, sweet faces, showing theImark of worry, care, self-denial and hard w rk. They seemed to reveal that they had to get up at dawn, get meals for a family of tw lve or thirteen three times a day, keep a laige home clean with none of our labor-saving devices and sew all their clothing by hand. I I I I I TEMPLETON TEMPTER 11 The men had to m-ilk the cows, feed the poultry, plant the fields to supply their food, clear the land and chop wood for fuel, and do the hundred and one tasks that fall to their care. In the evening men, women and children would work together, sometimes huskingcorn until nine o'clock. The chil- dren had to do their share of the work and I wonder how many children of today measure up 'tot the standard set by our forefathers. They often had to walk four or five miles to school, where the teacher believed in the say- ing, "Spare the rod and spoil the child." Today, how many of these difliculties do we have -to contend with and what will our photographs tell 'to the generations to come? Will our faces show the strength of character, the suffering and toil of our ancestors, or will we present only beauty of face and form? A. L. B. '31 The Responsibility of a Rich Man A rich man should determine how he may spend his moneyfor the advantage of othersg at present, others are continually plotting how they may beguile him into spending it apparently for his own. The aspect which he presents to the eyes of the world is generally that of a person holding a bag of money with a staunch grasp, and resolved to part with none of lt unless he is forced, and all the people about him are plotting how they may force him: that is, to find how they may per- suade him that he wants perfumesg another that he wants jewelry: another that he wants sugarplumsg another that he wants roses for Christmas. Anybody who can invent a new want for his enjoyment is supposed to be a benefactor to society: and thus the energies of the poorer people about him are continu- ally directed to the production of covetable, instead of serviceable thingsg and the rich man after the general aspect of a fool ls plotted against by all the world. Whereas the real aspect which he ought to have is that of a person wiser than others intrusted with the management of a larger quantity of capi- tal which he administers for the profit of all, directing each man to' the labor which is most healthy for him, and more serviceable to the community. E. S. '32 Suppose Suppose that the President of the United States had visited our school with the purpose of taking it as a model of an ideal American school. Would he have been quite satisfied with jeverything? Let us consider. Suppose he had watched a study hall. Would you have been very proud of it? Suppose he had been sitting on the plat- form as we entered the assembly hall. Do you think that he would have been particu- larly impressed? Suppose he had been ln the room Where the lunch is consumed immedi- ately after 12 o'clock. Do you think that he would have enjoyed the pushing, shoving, and scufliing, the noise when paperbags are smashed, the laughter when some unfortunate gets hit with a piece of pencil or chalk? Suppose he was leaving when the school was dismissed. Do you think that he would have been pleased with the pushing and crowdings? ' Suppose that he had opened a desk in one of the class rooms. Do you think that he would have had a very favorable opinion of your neatness? , Let's work together and let's work harder than ever to make our school the acme of per- fection as regards good-fellowship, politeness, and neatness. Let's not have any more push- ing, crowding, throwing of things, and let's have clean desks atleast. R. E. Z. '31 A ,Modern Miss The modern miss of nineteen thirty dressed in snappy knee length dresses, Ann Pennington hosiery, and dainty high-heeled pumps. Her hair was slicked back in mannish style and she was seldom seen without a cigarette dangling between two brilliantly painted lips. She was frequently seen wearing white duck trousers and extremely masculine shirts and ties. On many occasions hair which should have been blond was titian colored and vice versa, with flashy earrings exposed beneath her "off the face" hat. The nineteen thirty miss was a "whiz" at tennis, swimming, golf and various and sundry sports. She drove her own sport roadster and was an enthusiastic member of a class of would-be avlatrlxes. The older generation raised their lorgnettes and viewed with disda-in the wild escapades of the so-called "fast set." Grandmother peered over the edge of her spectacles shocked at the daring of the younger generation, but in a short time grandma was observed flash- ing by in her snappy straight Eight smoking a popular brand of cigaretts or on other oc- casions hopping off .from Roosevelt Field on a non stop flight to Paris. The modern miss possessed a keen sense of business responsibility and soon became as efficient as the masculine sei: in the business office. She was no longer 'referred to as the f H f J 12 'mmemron TEMPTER weaker sex. Her strength and ability placed her on the same footing as the "stronger sex." This could not continue forever. We now have an altogether different view of this mod- ern girl. Fashion now decrees that the short skirt and mannish dress must be put aside with the styles of nineteen hundred. The modern miss of nineteen thirty-one has discarded her former habits. Her mascu- line acquaintances are now puzzled as to whether or not her sophisticated dress and manner has changed this former modernism. She continues to indulge in the sports of nineteen thirty but she is arrayed in longer and more feminine apparel. When milady attends a dance she no longer appears in short dress and bobbed hair but is exquisitely groomed. Her ankle length dress reveals a very new feminine personage. Hair which was for- merly slicked back in masculine style is now beautifully marcelled. Her footwear has not changed, the spike heel continuing in vogue. She no longer desires to be independent. She deslsts from equallzlng her achievements with those of the masculine sex. We still continue to see the modern miss of nineteen thirty though her type is rapidly disappearing. From the top of her well mar- celled hair to her d-iamond studded spikes she is in every respect a modern miss of nineteen thirty-one. D. P. '31 Shooting Stars . If you look out from your window at the midnight sky, or take a walk on a fine, clear night you will occasionally see a streak of light dash over the heavens, thus forming what we call a falling or shooting star. It is not really one of the regular stars that has darted from its place. Sometimes a great shooting star is seen which makes a tremend- ous blaze of light as bright as the moon, but it is only visible at the very moment of its existence. These objects are called meteors, and you will be lucky if you ever see a really flne one. For ages and ages the meteorold has been moving through space. It is about 100 times as swift as the pace of a rifle bullet. Now for some imagining: suppose you were put on a meteor for a race with a train from London to Edinburgh. You would have won the race before the train left -the station. A meteor is changed but the substance it contains is not lost. Iron is found in the small shooting stars, and when found on earth, it is a hugeplece of iron, weighing from 10 pounds to 10 tons. F The next time you are out walking look up at the heavens for a shooting star, for as the old saying goes "See a shooting star make a Wish and yourlwlsh will come t ue." S. S. '34 Our Unexpected acation Eight fifteen o'clock on the morning of January twenty-first, nineteeri hundred and thirty-one, and all was well, or as nearly as could be expected under the bonditlons. On this eventful day, there was scheduled to take place the first of our mid-year exams. In keeping with age old custom a ong the stud- ents, all of the members of .empleton High School had reviewed their res ectlve subjects until the wee small hours of he morning, so of course they were prepared for the severe test which was soon to begin. Eight twenty o'clock on the morning of January twenty-first, ninetee hundred and thirty-one, and all was not well. The con- fidence which Was so prevaient among the pupils five minutes before h du mysteriously disappeared. Because of some unknown rea- son, the atmosphere was no laden with a feeling of uncertainty, and uring short in- tervals a girl's forced gigglln could be heard. However, all were determlnld to put on a brave front and give the lmpr sslon that mid- years were just an every day occurrence. Eight twenty-five o'clock n the morning of January twenty-first, nine en hundred and thirty-one, and the dreaded uzzer rang, call- ing all the faithful to their oom. Due to the disturbance caused by eve body's wanting to sit in the same room, q ite a delay fol- lowed, but as all things are b und to untangle themselves eventually, the s udents all man- aged to find, seats. Just after the paper had been passed out, a terrific thumping suddenl was heard com- ing from the general direct on of the stairs. As if in answer to the wo dering minds of these who waited for the xaminatlons, Mr. Stinson hurriedly entered t Ie room and With breath coming ln gasps, gave the waiting pupils official notice that chool was to be closed for one week, due to the breaking out of scarlet fever. , With expressions of surprise and joy written on their faces, the boys and girls looked at one another for a period of approximately thirty seconds, but as the t uth dawned upon them, they all made a wild ash for the door, and thence to their home ooms. Eight forty o'clock on the morning of Janu- ary twenty-first, nineteen h dred and thirty- one, and all was silent amo g the corridors of Templeton High School. Tile pupils, who but twenty minutes before had Keen on the verge of a nervous break down, ere now happily finding their way home, an to a. life of ease for the ensuing week. I R. Brook '31 I 5 TENIPLETON TENIPTER 13 Travel Travel is a pleasure. No doubt all of you have one time or another gone on trips. Did you not enjoy yourself? Of course you did. Every moment something was enfolding itself before you. A vast panorama of scenes that you have seen is stored in your memory to be recalled when a scene or place is men- tioned. Travel is an education. An education that is unconsciously gained. The things you see are bound to make questions arise in your mind that must be answered. When they have been answered, lo and behold, you have learned something without realizing it. On a trip many things are seen. For in- stance: natures oddities, man made Wonders and places of historical value. Here again are examples that set the mind on different tracks of thought. Some people hate the word education. The word repulses. They believe they know enough already and immediately upon mention of education they withdraw into themselves. But travel is an agreeable form of education. Something is being learned without intensive studying. Should a person study every day of his life he could never know all there is to know. A way to learn is to travel and one never knows the benefits of education until he has at least explored the Wonders of his own country. C. S. O. '34 Pepping Up Assemblies What does "assembly" mean to our Temple- ton High School students? A social gath- ering or merely an omitted period? What can you do to make our assembly more en- tertaining? We do not lack good singers or even good actors and actresses. Ideas of pro- grams put on by dinerent classes have been suggested but not carried out. I only wish they would be. This year we have had a few assemblies, the majority merely for lectures. I have heard of classes of other schools putting on plays. The class with the best play gets honors, prizes, or even a day off. Which reward would you prefer? Let's make next year the most interesting and entertaining year for our high school assemblies and I assure you, we'1l- have the most entertaining assemblies the Templeton High has ever known. M. I. C. '33 Knute Roekne's Career The world has lost one of the greatest coaches it has ever had, Knute Rockne. He was born in Voss, Norway in 1888 and in 1893 he moved with his parents to Chicago. He en- rolled at Northwest Division High School. In 1907 he borrowed forty-five dollars from his friends and entered Notre Dame where he starred at track, pole vaulting and football. He gave to the world one of the greatest grid- iron machines ever produced, the Four Horsemen. In 1929 he was forced to bed by leg infection but in 1930 he came back with a strong team and defeated the University of Southern California. He was made super- intendent of the Southern Studebaker Sales in 1931. He took many business trips in air- planes, one finally resulting in his death on March 31, 1931. E. Stone, '34 Forest Fires How many of you have stopped to think of the enormous losses caused by forest fires throughout the United States? What causes the fires? Carelessness! Seliishness! Igno- rance! Take, for instance, a man who throws a lighted match or cigarette into some combus- tible material. Does he think of the public safety or the tremendous loss that may origi- nate from that match or cigarette? No! That is an example of ignorance and carelessness. Selfishness may be the cause of many fires. For example, a camper who deliberately ig- nores all caution with fires, leaves his fire un- watched, while he goes in search of game or firewood. When he arrives at his camp shortly after, he finds it a mass of flames, be- yond control. He then makes a hasty exit from the scene, thinking "It's not near my home, so why should I worry?" Carelessness! Selfishnessl Ignorance! They are curses to Humanity! Fires are very destructive, not only to peo- ple, but to the beauty of the forest and land- scape. Where there may have been life and beauty, there may now be a charred area of stumps and trees overgrown with dense bushes and ferns, a scar that mars the beauty and glory of a landscape. Use the necessary precautions when making a fire! Be careful and avoid trouble! V. M. '34 Takes Advantage when it is Possible Just like a naughty little boy playing, and playing in the rnud or running up and down in a mud puddle, a horse seems to have the same attitude t0WaI'dS life- 14 TEMPLETON TE-MPTER Every time this particular horse thinks he can get loose and run away, he thinks he is doing something very clever, but his mistress thinks entirely just the opposite. There isn't any thing a horse likes better than to have his mistress run after him with the halter and a pail of beans trying to make him think they are oats, but you can't fool "an old horse." You can always catch a horse if he hasn't broken his harness and put him out in the pasture, a horse after he has broken loose and run away thinks and knows he is at liberty and that is all there is to it. This particular horse that ran away April 13, 1931, was chased by' some smallerboys who thought they were doing something big. He ran down the Rabbit Track, the railroad that goes by the Templeton High School and ran across the trestle that goes over the famous "Otter River," and there he found he was a bad, naughty horse. His four feet fell through but somehow he got himself out with three skinned legs and then limped around until some prominent men of Baldwinsville caught him. . His mistress-went and got the punished horse. He was glad to get back to his beloved stall where he docilely stands on three skinned legs, the other suffering from a wrench. The mistress wonders if he Will ever run away again after he gets over this first pun- ishment. Of course he won't run away at the present time but possibly in the near future. I hope he don't go in the same tracks. E. K. '33 A Green Lawn There is one thing which n rly everyone will agree would greatly improv the appear- isitors to the ance of the T. H. S. building. school building might easily get, a wrong idea of this school when they come up the front walk. To the left are trampled grass stubs, while to the right is a would-b gravel lawn. A green lawn extending the e tire length of the building to the sldewal would very greatly add to the appearance of the build- ing. To have such a lawn, the rst necessary step would be to grade the front grounds with loam. Next it would be seeded nd rolled. The third and probably the most difficult step, would be not to have the fron lawn used as a. playground and a short cut tg the sidewalk.

N A WINTER TRAGEDY Out in the woods where the snow is deepg In the summer when the crickets peep, All is quiet and serene, Snow covering all that was once so greeen ,Often at night when all is still, A fox comes walking up over the hill, With dainty tread from caution caused With foot in mid-air he suddenly paused. Scenting a meadow mouse gone astray, The sly old fellow creeps toward his prey, Again he pauses, for before him he sees, The small brown mouse on a fallen tree. Not soon enough aware of his foe, - The poor little mouse is compelled to let go, Never again will he hunger know, l Or the beauty of woods that are covered 5 with snow. E. N. '34 l TEMPLETON TEIVIPTER 15 Literar Department p SALLY'S ADVENTURE It was the Christmas week of 1910. The children of Miss Randolph's first grade had been dismissed. Dismissed for a whole week. Just think! A week to plan for Santa's coming. Gleefully, they romped through the school door and slid down the icy sections of the concrete walkg proudly they displayed their Christmas cut-ups which they had made in the drawing class. A Some hurried to their warm homes: others lagged behind discussing the presents which they expected good Santa to bring. Sally Oglethorpe belonged to the lagging group, not that she was a laggard, but that she was simply bubbling over with plans and wished some of her special "girl-friends" to be "in" on some secrets. She had a great surprise for her twin- brother, Ranny. It was something Ranny had been asking Santa for a long, long time. But Santa always forgot it: so Sally had written to Santa herself and had asked him not to disappoint Ranny again because he was a good brother. "And what do you think happened yester- day?" she asked the other little girls. But not waiting for a reply she continued in a secretive whisper: "The Expressman brought 'It' yesterday. Mother and I put it in the , H . 0 . . . . A shriek pierced the childish babble and the cry for "Sally," "Sally" was heard and Sally contrary to all her mother's and teacher's warnings dashed across the street, without looking to the left or right to help the twin brother, who had slipped on the icy pavement. Sally never reached Ranny, for she was knocked down-then darkness. Sally Oglethorpe painfully opened her eyes. She had had a very strange dream, that ls, she had the feeling that she had dreamed. She couldn't remember anything about it, only that it had been strange. How dim her room was! Why there were people moving about her room! What could have happened? Oh! ' She remembered she had been struck down by the minister's automobile, for Min- ister Brown was the only one in the village who possessed such a. luxury. She had tried to 'check her flight but she had been too late. Sally sat up in bed-Who could these pe- culiarly' garbed people be? And this gentle white-haired lady who looked very familiar? Who could this smiling young man be? He looked like some one she should know very Well. Sally rubbed her eyes and looked about the room. Why, this was not her room! What had happened to her Jack and Jlll wallpaper? She must ask mother about this change. She was going to slip out of bed when she no- ticed the length of her legs! Why, what had happened to her? She felt like Alice in Won- derland whose story her mother had read to her the night before. But unlike Alice she had grown up. She must surely be as big as mother. Where were her curls? Possibly un- der the bandages. Sally looked at every one in bewilderment: "Please may I see my mother?" she asked in a childish voice. The gentle white-haired lady moved nearer the bed and enfolded Sally in her arms. "This is mother, dear," she said. Sally was about to deny this statement, when the smiling young man stepped forward and said, "and I'm Ranny? "Impossible! Ranny was only a little fellow in the nrst grade!" Just then one of the peculiarly garbed group stepped forward and said in a gruff and odd sounding voice: "It is better that you ex- plain the situation to your daughter, Mrs. Oglethorpe. At the present moment the past years are perfectly blank. I fear it will be necessary for you and Ranny here to do some heavy explaining to this little girl. You must begin at the time of her accident twenty years ago." "Twenty Years Ago!!!" echoed Sally. Between Mrs. Oglethorpe and Ranny, Sally acquired a fair idea of what transpired during the past years. b She had learned of her father's unsuccess- ful search for a doctor who could restore his Sal1y's memory. Doctors all over the country had been baffled by her condition. Some doc- tors went so far as to say that there was noth- ing the matter with her, that she was per- fectly normal and healthy and that her mind was not affected in any Way. But Daddy Oglethorpe was not satisfied. He continued in his search but there wasn't a doctor in the United States or in Canafflit that I T 16 TEMPLETON 'rEMP'rEa could help Sally. It was impossible to search Europe, as at that time-the year 1914, Europe Was plunging into what later turned out to be the World War. Soon 'all the country and the countries of Europe were at War with Germany and her allies. Later in the year 1917 the United States de- clared War against Germany and Austria. Americans were asked to volunteer and Daddy Oglethorpe was one of the first to do so. It was during the Americans' first encounter with the Germans at the Marne that Daddy Oglethorpe had been killed. Months later, on the eleventh of November, 1918, the Armistice was signed and the world was at peace again. Mother, being of a naturally timid nature, was afraid to continue with Daddy's search in a foreign land.' She decided to wait until Ranny was through with his schooling before she would leave for Europe. Meantime, Ranny, very much interested in his twin sister's case, had taken up the medi- cal profession. ' During his- senior year at medical school Ranny heard of a great Doctor in France, who specialized in cases of annesia. ' Soon the three Oglethorpes were on their way to France to interview the great Doctor . THE A storm was coming! That was the news the people along the coast heard. Some shrugged and thought it couldn't be any worse than others they had had. While others sharing scorn from some and Words of en- couragement from others of their companions, shivered and feared it. The storm had come and was there in all its fury, bringing destruction to all things along the beach. A In a small cottage not far from the jagged rocks which held the swelling sea from sweep- ing over the beach, two boys about twenty years of age were discussing the storm. Jack turned' to his companion who was 'sitting in a chair by the iire and said "Art, what do you think of this storm, do you think it will hit the coast here ,as badly as it did the coast above us yesterday?" "Oh, why worry about the storm. It can't be any worse than the one ,we had three weeks ago. , Boy! that was some storm, wasn't it?" replied Art. "Yeah! but I Wish this storm would let up., I don't like all this rain andwind we're hav- ing. The waves are even now crashing up over. the rocks below us. It won't be long before it will .be up to the house, if it keeps On," was his answer as he moved to the door Duport. Doctor Duport was more tha pleased to ex- amine Sally as this, even to m, was a very unusual case. The fact that 0 many years had elapsed and that so many Doctors were ballled, was enough to entice him. But, first, Sally must go back to America, back to the scenes of her childhood, before the Doctor consented to operate. The opera- tion was too delicate to be performed in an unfamiliar environment. In accordance with the Doctor's wishes, the Oglethorpes traveled back to America. . Did she remember the ride in Ranny's air- plane from New York to Oglestown? Air- plane? Sally didn't even know what it was. Ranny enthusiastically explained the new mode of traveling and promised to take her out riding again as soon as Doctor Duport al- lowed. Doctor Duport had performed the opera- tion and soon Sally would become acquainted with all the things that she had known. Be- fore many days she would be Well enough to feel that nothing had ever happened. The only thing that marred the Oglethorpe's happiness, was, fthe thoughtl that Daddy Oglethorpe should have been there to help them celebrate. R- F- '32 STORM and opened it to look out. "Art" crded Jack as the door was torn from his grasp and slammed against the house, letting the storm sweep into the warm room. "Look at the sea! It's never been that high before. I think we ought to be getting out of here." "Oh! don't be a baby" Art replied, as he joined Jack and helped him shut the door which the wind and rain were trying to keep open. 'Tm not! but . . . " his sentence was interrup- ted by the ringing of the telephone and he crossed the room and lifted the receiver. "Hello! What's that? We ought to leave? The walls have given out? All right! We'll leave, and We'll stop and tell "Old Man" Nelson on our way down the beach. Yes. Goodbye!" "Well, as I said before, 'I'm no baby' but we've got to leave now. The walk up the beach has been washed out by the storm and the water is rushing up on the beach and even now some of the houses nearest the water are being flooded. Come! Take what you want and let's get going. We've got to stop on our way down and tell that miser, 'fOld Man" to leave. The operator said the storm might be serious before long and we had better leave now and get to higher ground before it reaches its climax and we're washed TEMPLETON TEMPTER ' 11 out to sea!" So saying he turned, put on his sllcker, took up some of the things he didn't want destroyed or lost and then waited until Art had done the same. Then they went out into the storm which seemed to be getting Wilder every minute. "Old Man" people believed,A41ad a fortune hidden somewhere in his house, but as he was suspicious of everyone and spoke to but few people, no one had ever been inside his house. He had never let them get that far. Tonight he was sitting in a corner with his gold before him counting it. He was so entranced in his counting that he paid little heed to the storm without. The lamp which was the only light in the room except for a little fire in the fire- place would flicker and threaten to go out as some of the cold, damp blasts of the storm found their way into the room. Suddenly the iain and wind which had been beating against the building and rat- tling the windows attracted the man's atten- tion. He spread his arms over the gold lying before him and drew it to him although he saw nothing to disturb him as he lifted his shaggy head and with shifty suspicious eyes looked about himg he could not go on count- ing his money as contentedly as before. He kept raising his eyes to the door and looking at the window, which was covered by a black cloth to keep prying eyes from seeing within, and he shifted uneasily at the wierd sound of the storm. Turning back to his gold after one of these interruptions, he started up trembling as he heard the sound of steps coming down the beach toward the house. He hurriedly put his gold back into a tin box and put it under two rocks before the fireplace. As the steps continued coming toward the house "Old Man" trembled more and when Jack finally hollered to him and asked him to open the door "Old Man" cried, "You can't have it! You can't have it." Above the roar of the storm the boys tried to tell him they didn't want anything he had but that he would have to leave the house be- cause the- waves were rushing over the beach in angry, destroying sweeps and would soon be upon them. When they could not make him understand Art turned to Jack saying, "We've got to get him out of there. It won't be long before the place is flooded." So together they sought a way of entering the house. They succeeded with little difficulty and upon entering the room they saw "Old Man" crouched in a cor- ner still mutterlng "You can't have it! You can't have it!", fear showing in his eyes which stared out from under his shaggy hair. Fur- ther explanatlons from the boys had no effect on the man so they advanced toward him de- termined to get him away from there. As they moved forward he shrank still farther into the corner now shouting above the storm. "I'll never tell you where it is. You can't rob me! Get out of here! Don't you touch me! It's mine! Get out!" But they both took hold of him and by dragging and pushing him finally got him out of the house and started up the hill away from the beach, now half covered with water. After struggling they succeeded in getting him up the hill to the place where many others had gathered to escape from the surg- ing sea which was now destroying their homes. Children were crying in fright and women stood by, some silent, others crying, helpless to do anything to save their homes. The storm continued through the night and as Jack and Art stood silently watching, they saw their cottage washed from its foundation by the angry sea surging over the rocks. Jack turning to Art called above the noise of the storm, "Do you see 'Old -Man?' I wish we had kept track of him. The old fool of a miser ds liable to go back to the house after his gold." "Well, Jack, we sure had some time with him. Say! let's go see if we can find him," and with that they picked their way among the people, searching for "Old Man." They searched in vain and when morning came and the storm had died down disclos- ing the destruction it had wrought during the night they still had seen nothing of him. "Well, what do you think he did, go back to the house in that storm with all that water raging on the beach?" asked Art as they stopped on a rock looking down onto the beach. "Let's go down to the house and see if he went down there. I think we will be able to get there all right. I bet if 'Old Man' Went last night he was either killed or washed out to sea but We'11 have a look. I don't be- lieve he could have made it last night, though." "All right," replied Jack. "Let's go." On reaching the house they found the door torn off and debris all over the place. On entering they saw the chairs and table over- turned and half buried in sand and water but they saw no sign of "Old Man" then so they went out and Walked along the beach. Suddenly Jack who was a little ahead of Art turned, grasped Art's arm and exclaimed, "Look! It's 'Old Man,' " and they rushed up to him. "Old Man" was lying with his face half buried in the sand, dead. Tightly clasped in his hands was a tin box but the box was quite empty. On the sands by him they found a few gold coins of little value. When Jack and Art left "Old Man" he slipped away from the group on the hill and made his way back to the house. When he 13 'rnzvirnafrou -rnmrfrma p reached the house the water was already knee deep but he struggled on and went 'in to the fireplace where he bent and jumbled at the rocks before it. In a few minutes he arose with a tin box clasped in his hands and left the house. When on the beach, he stopped, opened the box and let his eyes rest in a hungry manner upon the gold. While he was standing there an angry wave swept up to him, knocked him over and at the same time spilled his treasured gold into the sea. "Old Man" died in that wave, never .knowing that the gold he had come back for was lost at the same time he lost his life. - - I. S. '31 SALLY'S OPPORTUNITY "Hello, Sally, going out this year for hockey?" called Ruth Morton, Sally Carter's chum, catching up with her on the way to school. "I guess not," answered Sally with an effort to smile. "Mother's worse and I'm afraid she needsme more at home than the hockey team needs me." "Oh, Sally, but we need you terribly. You know Elsie and Marjorie graduated last June and so we won't have them this year, and if we lose you-Sally, you simply must go out." "Ruth, it's'all settled that I can't. I'm sorry, you realize that because you know how proud I was to be on the team last year. Mother wanted me to go out for it but I couldn't leave her to take care of the house and Bobby and Jane when she is so ill. But I shall try to come to most of the games and join in the cheering." . ' With that Ruth had to be content, because she knew Sally would stick to her duty, but she sighed when she thought of the team. Practice was started. Every afternoon for a week scores of girls crowded the field. Many were in hopes of making the team. The in- structor quickly thinned out the number, mak- ing two teams of the most promising material. Sally was not among them. - The teams settled down to hard work and progressed rapidly. The first team was chosen with Ruth Morton as captain. She played center, and by her ability to put life into her team, encouraging them, giving them confidence, and being an example to them by her wonderful playing, she led them from one victory to another. . Every Saturday afternoon Sally managed to attend the games. She was the most en- thusiastic rooter in the Lancaster High School grandstand. Every girl on the team knew and liked the vlvacious, adorable Sally and were disappointed when they heard she could not play. The season was nearly over and the school looked forward to the last game of the season -against Malvern High School. Malvern High School was an old rival of Lancaster, and this game would decide the winner of the State Championship. Malvern had a won- 1 derful team and, if reports were true, Lan- caster would certainly have to iight to win. Saturday dawned bright and clear and the held was in perfect condition. Sally made her way to the front of the grandstand which was already filled with shouting, happy, hilarious classmates 'and alumni who were waving school colors, blowing tin wistles and carrying on good-natured banter with the supporters of the rival school who were there in full force. At the referee's whistle the two teams were off. First one team would gain control of the puck, only to have it seized by one on the opposite side. The teams were evenly matched, or so it seemed at flrst. When the Malvern team shot a goal, the cheers were deafening. At the end of the first half the score was flve to four in favor of Malvern. Feeling was tense at the- beginning of the fourth quarter, for during the third period the rival team had gained two points. mak- ing the score seven to four. The home team was tiring. Suddenly everyoneqwas on his feet, and groans issued from ,the Lan- caster grandstand. Thelma Burton, one of the best players, had fallen andspralned her ankle. The substitute was--well, just a sub- stltute and everyone knows what ordinary substitutes are like. The game was almost over and Malvern was ln- the leadl, "Sally Carter! Sally Carter!" , , a Sally looked at a girl who-was-:calling her name and when she was taken byfzthe arm and hurried towards the fleld, Sally looked at her in bewllderment. 3 "The coach wants to see you," shegheard. It was Sally's opportunity! Her chance to help her school and to prove that she was not a quitter, as many had thought when she had not showed up for practice. She -shook hands with her opponent and the game continued while her name was shouted by thgse.ln the grandstand. , . The puck whizzed by. With a quick twist of her wrist she sent it flying towards the goal. With renewed energy the .team rallied around her. Quick passwork rewarded them with a goal. The only way to catch the other team was to get them confused by quick shoot- ing and clever passwork. Making a feint to the -f f ---4-5--r-., - -- TEMPLETON 'TEMPTER 19 left Sally turned right and started toward the goal with the puck, eludlng flying legs and sticks with an ease which was astonish- ing. Wlth a twist of the stick she sent the puck flying to the center of the goal. Good team work with Sal1y's remarkable capacity for shooting goals resulted in raising the score from 4 to 7 which tied them with Malvern. Two minutes to play. The visiting team was awakening to Sally's ability and they blocked her every move. At last she escaped the last guard and started at top speed for the goal. Malvern, thinking she had the puck pursued her until they realized their mistake and turned to fol- low Ruth who possessed the puck. With all her strength, Ruth sent the puck to Sally who then started again for the goal. Just as the guard was ready to strlke lt, the puck twisted and went right into the goal. A sec- ond later the gong sounded which ended the game. Lancaster had won the State Cham- plonshlp. "Every evening for half an hour, after Dad was home to be with mother, I went out and practiced shooting a puck. You see there is a small field just behind our home where I could practice and return in a short time. Ruth and Dad were the only ones who knew that I was keeping ln trim, so how did you ask me to play when you dldn't know what I was like?" asked Sally turning to the coach after she had explained to the girls how she had increased her ability to play hockey. "Ruth told me to have you take Thelma's place and I trusted her judgment entirely," responded the coach. Sally hugged Ruth and thanked her for giv- ing her the chance to show her loyalty to the school. Outside, the air was ringing with shouts and cheers for Lancaster High School and Sally Carter. A. L. B. '31 THE MASQUERADE Because he had been late to the dance, Tom found himself without a partner. Of course, there were the usual wall-flowers sitting around, but they did not appeal to him, so he wandered off into an adjoining room. At first glance he thought the room was empty, but on closer examination he saw that the chair by the window was occupied. With a faint sigh he dropped into the oppo- site seat and glanced at the other guest. To his surprise he saw a young girl and she seemed to be quite pretty too. But then, how could anyone tell until she took off her mask. "What in the dickens is she doing here all alone?" he asked himself, but as he was un- able to flnd a satisfactory answer he proceed- ed to find out. "The ball seems to be quite a success, doesn't it?" he inquired. "It does," answered the girl in a low voice, "but I'm not a good judge because I'm a stranger here and feel quite lost." "Well, nobody ls supposed to know anybody else at a masquerade anyhow, is she? I'm quite all alone too, so Why not dance this with me and forget we're lonely?" "Yes, why not?" replied the girl as she rose. Tom got up also and they went into the ball- room. The orchestra had been playing a noisy jazz piece, but now they were playing a smooth slow waltz. Tom put his arm around her waist and as he had expected he found her very easy to dance with. She was much smaller than he and he could feel her hair tickle his chin and he could smell a faint per- fume. "Funny how all girls have a faint clinging perfume," he thought to himself, but it was more delightful than otherwise. When the music stopped they found them- selves near the doorway and they could feel the cool evening breeze coming in. "That breeze feels nice. Let's go out," sug- gested Tom and without waiting for an an- swer he drew the girl outside. ' They wandered out into the garden and Tom discovered an old bench hidden quite out of sight of the hall. "Just the thlngln he thought as he helped the girl to the seat. "Nice warm night, a beautiful girl! What more could one desire?" he continued to him- self. And to the girl he said, "I thought the eve- ning was going to be dull, but I was mistaken, I'm glad to say." "Don't be too sure" rejoined the girl at his side. "You don't even know who or what I am." Tom thought he could see a smile fllt across her face but he could not be sure because of the dim light. "No, I don't" he replied. "But I'll find out when it's time to take oil' our masks and until then I'll take a chance." And with that he put his arm across the back of her chair. The girl moved away slightly, but did not seem displeased so he left it there. "I prefer sitting out here to dancing ln that unbearably hot room, don't you?" continued Tom. The girl agreed and this time, Tom, growing bolder, put his arm all the way around her. .,.4L 20 TEMPLETON 'I'EMPTER "Oh, you mustn't!" she cried, but she let it remain there just the same. "Why mustn't I?" whispered Tom as he drew her closer. He was just going to kiss her when she jumped up and tore her mask off with an angry gesture. "I'll tell you why, Mr. Thomas Ryan," she exclaimed wrathfully. "You think you're having a nice little flirtation, don't you? But you picked on the wrong one this time! You didn't know it was your own little wife did you? I know now what you do when you're supposed to be at your o1Tlce. You go off to dances and hop ofl' with the first girl that comes along. No, don't you interrupt me! You thought you were smart, sneaking away in that old rig, dldn't you? But I knew you the minute you came into that room and I thought here's where I'm going to have some fun but I guess I got more than I was looking for. Well, I have found out what my dutiful, hardworking little hubby does nights. Oh! I'm so shocked and disgusted I just can't say a word! Why don't you take off that old' mask and look a person in the face if you can?" With that she snatched oif the mask and then gave a frightened little gasp. It wasn't her husband. It was an utter stranger who stood before her.. L. K. P. '31 thletic Department GIRLS' BASKETBALL Schedule Opponents T. H. S.

The Juniors led the Seniors until the last quarter when the Seniors let loose with some of their reserve strength and defeated the Juniors by a score of 15-10. The second game that took place in the gymnasium a few days later between the Freshmen and the Eighth Grade, proved a victory for the Eighth Grade after a dead- lock until the closing minutes. Score: 9-4. The Feshman girls came back to even the score by defeating the Eighth Grade girls by a one-sided score. School Glee Club The Glee Club of the Templeton High School which is directed by Miss Hamlin has had a successful season. The members of the Glee Club pre- sented a Thanksgiving entertainment in the Templeton High School assembly hall on the 6th of November which amused everyone present. They also gave a Christmas enter- tainment at the Congregational Church. At a meeting held on February 19 a sug- gestion was made to have a school song. The lack of a school song has made the members of the Glee Club very enthusiastic and so they are working very hard to find words to express the' school's characteristics and the sentiment they feel towards it. We hope to receive unanimous approval for the song. The music is very pretty and the words I am sure will please and satisfy all. Atgpresent the Glee Club members are prac- ticing songs for Commencement Exercises. L. L. K. '34 ' Latin Club This year the members of the Latin classes formed a club, the S. P. Q.

The officers are: Ponefex Maximus Coleman Bicknell The two Consuls, Rose Zisk Genevieve Duquette GIRL'S TRACK MEET Since the llirst of April the Athletic girls have been struggling with track practice. The high school gymnasium is being used until the outside is more suitable. Mr. White is our coach. So far we have practiced broad jumping, high jumping, basketball, relay, running and contests for the number of basketsimade in one minute. These are enjoyed by all the girls.

Freshman Class The Freshman Class of 1931 has done very little in the way of entertainments. A dance for the students of this class has been men- tioned but the statement has not been put into eflect yet. At the beginning of the year 1930, when the school session began, this class consisted of fifty-nine students. At the present time it consists of fifty-five. The Freshman of this year are, as most all other Freshman of the classes that came be- fore them, very noisy, unable to keepin their seats and do not seem to understand that third period ls a study period rather than a period to ask his nearest neighbor what he or she did last night. Two class meetings were held in Room 8, during which time they elected the following officers: President Veikko Matllainen Vice President Ellen Nykanen Treasurer Charles Oliver 22 TEMPLETON 'I'E'lMP'1'ER Secretary Stella Stone 1 Miss Beatrice Hager was appointed as the class advisor. The class colors chosen are red and white. The class motto chosen is "Carpe diem" meaning "Seize the Opportuni- ty". The class dues were fixed at 3.50 ayear. 'L. K. '34 TO THE FRESHMAN--- On 'to Washington! ' How many of you have ever been to Wash- ington, to that glorious city where our gov- ernment is controlled? Not many of you, I think. How many of you would care to see the White House, the Capitol, the needle- like point of the Washington Monument thrusting itself into the sky? All of you, be- yond a doubt. What American heart- has not thrilled at the thought of seeing his country's seat of government? You all know the an- swer. If you care to go, why not plan for it? Save for it? That is the only solution. The alumni of Templeton have gone. Classes have planned and worked and saved for such a trip. If other classes have accomplished this goal so can we. But we must save. Before I inish: Think of the things you would see, Freshmen. The White House, the Capitol with the House and Senate in session, perhaps the Washington Monument, the liin- coln Memorial with the magnificent statue of Lincoln by French, the Potomac, Potomac park, Washlngton's ancestral home, and last but not least, the other buildings of the gov- ernment and the avenues of the States. Think, Freshmen, of all this, and make, "On to Wash- ington!" your slogan all through glorious days at Templeton High. On! On! On! to Washington! .- C. S. O. '34 Sophomore Class In September of the years 1929, a class of freshmen entered the Templeton High School. Unorganized, diffident and rather "green", they were seen looking for room so and so. This soon ceased as an acquaintance began with teachers and upper classmen. Soon, after the 'beginning of the regular routine, a class meeting was called for the purpose of electing oflicers. The results of the balloting were as follows: President Anthony Burnyshifski Vice President Mildred Bourn Secretary Mary Conti Treasurer Gerald Bourn During their first year the freshmen had dl- rect charge of no social events, although they did take part in many. The iirst year soon came to a close finding us Sophomores, al- though diminished in members the same spirit as in the class that entered in 1929. Of- ficers were soon chosen for their second year. The results were as follows: President Roland Woodbury Vice President Mary Conti Secretary Genevieve Duquette Treasurer Dorothy Greenwood The second social event of the year was the Sophomore dance, which took place early in January. It was a very successful evening. As their second year is drawing to a close the sophomores have realized that work is essential for a firm foundation to success. M. C. '33 Junior Class Juniors , President Edwin Dobson Vice President Paul Pease Secretary Berthe Garant Treasurer Genevieve Vachowski The Junior class has held two class meet- ings this year. The first one was held Sep- tember 16, 1930 to elect a committee for se- lecting class rings. The following members were chosen: Edwin Dobson, Warren Tourtel- lot, Rose Fahey, and Berthe Garant. Miss Guard was chosen as class advisor. On Octo- ber 6, 1930 the class met once more to decide upon the rings. The ones chosen were of yellow gold, with a black onyx background on which was an old English "T", Just above and below the letter were the words "High School." On one shank was "19" and on the other f'32". The class has not had any dance this year, but it is looking forward to the Junior Prom which will be held in Fraternity Hall some- time in the spring. All students have taken an active part in sports this year but this seems to apply espe- cially to the members of the class of '32. Nearly all who went out for either football or basketball made the team, which makes us very proud. We hope that they will keep up the good work, in the end "Sportsmanship" leads to "Goodfellowship" and that is but a step to "Success." B. G.

The music was furnished by Park's orchestra of Win- chendon, and the dance proved a great suc- cess. The next class meeting was held to elect a committee for selecting class pins and also a committee to select a number of plays. Our class has the honor of being the first to have its play chosen before the Thanks- giving recess. The play, "So This Is London" was selected with Miss Giles as director. The pins which were received early in No- vember are very different from those of other classes. They have the cut-out "T" as a back- ground with "Templeton" and "H, S." written out on the shield, and a lightning guard of black enamel with numerals, 1931, in gold. A Christmas party, in charge of the Senior class, was held in the Assembly hall, Friday afternoon, December 19. The story "Why the Chimes Rang" was read and songs were sung by the student body after which there was dancing. The sleigh ride which was scheduled for January 24 was suddenly brought to an end by the unexpected vacation upon the outbreak of scarlet fever. Thanking Warren for our vacation we sent him a basket of fruit. E. J. '31 To Templeton High Here's to you Templeton High! As a timid group we entered school four years ago. We thought school was terrible, the lessons un- reasonable and we were all happy when Fri- day night came-but then Monday morning came and with heavy hearts We trudged back again to take up the hated burden again. Thus -almost four years passed and now we are getting ready to leave T. H. S. We are all happy and busy in preparing for the Senior play, Class Day and other activities of grad- uation, but underneath that happiness is a sadness at the thought of leaving our friends, studies and the happy-go-lucky school life. Until these last all too few weeks before grad- uation we have never realized how much it meant to us to enjoy the comradeship of our friends: to take part in school activities and even our once hated subjects become objects with which we hate to part. As the necessity of leaving school and going out into the world stares us in the face, we look back with heavy hearts at the memories of the glorious days at T. H. S. So take warning underclassmen and enjoy each and every minute. You may jeer and say "Huh" but wait 'til'it's time for you to graduate and see if I am so very wrong. Every cloud must have a silver lining and the lining to this cloud seems to be the memories which no one can take away and the Alumni banquets to be looked forward to. So-fare- well-T. H.

It was a tremendous success. The cast was Well cho- sen and after much hard work and training achieved an easy manner. The presentations were April 8, Grange hall, Templeton and April 10, Fraternity Hall, Baldwinsville. With the profits realized the class plans to go to Boston for a last good time together and the remainder will go to a gift fund for T. H. S. D. C. '31 Election Day The polls are closed and by their votes the pupils of our high school have attributed cer- tain characterlstics to various individuals. The Editor-in-Chief of this paper has em- ployed eminent legal counsel and is prepared to defend any suits for slander which may arise from the publication of the following facts: Johnny McLeod is taller than Woodbury by one vote or a couple of hairs, but for large pedal extremities Woodbury wins by several sizes. The most altitudinous girl is Mlrlnda Tucker, but Mirinda is more of a Cinderella than Dorothy Greenwood. Henry Denis is in a class by himself for height and McCrillis is the heavyweight. Ruth Lawrence is shorter than Dorothy Prescott, but for Weight Alice Adams has no competitors. Henry Denis is TEIVIPLETON TEMPTER. I1d0D.." isL0 This senior Play, "so t fOr the Cas 26 TEMPLETON 'rmvnrriza the champion light-weight, though he has more flesh on his bones than Camden. Hazel Piercy doesn't need to diet to reduce so it is not overweight that causes her to appear the laziest. The votes for handsomest boy were widely distributed, but the final counting gave Carll two more than Bicknell with Oliver and Jos- lin crowding hard for additional places. Among the many pretty girls the race was close with Eloise Saveall finishing first, Annie Beagarie second, and Gertrude Rahlkka third. The most studious boy is said to be Bick- nell with Camden and Tom Kasper at the bottom of the list. Berthe Garant is more studious than Nellie Maloy according to the ballot. Peter Kasper makes more noise than John McLeod and Mary Contiis not as noisy as Dorothy Knower. John Yurkus is the quietest boy imaginable, even quieter than Matilainen, and Mildred Thayer is the antith- esis of Dorothy Knower. Cole Bicknell is the most popular boy and Betty Saunders the most popular, girl with Lody Koldys and Iva Smith tied for second place, with nearly as many votes. Roger Brook is the Beau Brummel of the school and Eloise Saveall has the most "glad rags", being seconded by Lody Koldys. LaFarr most needs a hair-cut while Henry Peabody waits. Doro- thy Knower is most bereft of tresses. Peter Kasper is adjudged the greatest pest to teachers and at the same time has been called the teachers' pet. Mildred Fales is teachers' pest and is tied with Dorothy Coch- ran as pet. Coleman Bicknell is not only the best boy athlete but most brilliant, being seconded in the former by Oja and in the lat- ter by Matilainen. Iva Smith has more votes as athlete than Betty Saunders and Berthe Garant is most brilliant, and while she is in love, she is not smitten as forcibly at Katy Greene. Moonbeams shine more directly on Pease than on Dobson. Bicknell is the "Sun- ny Jim" with McLeod practically a twin. Iva Smith sees the bright side of things and Mary Conti can also keep her disposition sweet. For snappy comebacks Dorothy Cochran has the edgeon Betty Saunders and Clifford Webber is never at a loss for an appropriate answer. Cyganiewicz and Pee-wee Gleason are both accused of being bluffs and for the girls Mary Conti can put up a good front. Several of the boys were short-changed on disposition and Shepardson-leads the list with Carll and Peabody tied for second place. Ruth Lawrence is voted the crabbiest girl and she is also awarded the largest lunch box with Mary Conti a hearty second. Katy Greene is most collegiate and her penmanshlp is second only to that of Alice Silverberg who should teach Ruth Lawrence to write. Eloise Saveall is likewise collegiate and excels as a dancer. Bicknell is most collegiate, Brook neatest ap- pearing and Valiton's terpsichorean splendor is eclipsed only by that of Dobson. Charles Oliver and Tony Yurkus are excel- lent penmen. Brook was adjudged the poor- est writer, but those who voted for him had never seen O'Brien's hieroglyphics. O'Brien undeniably talks most, which is plenty, and should take a lesson from Johnny Yurkus or Matila-inen who have little or nothing to say. Mary Conti and Dorothy Cochran are both loquacious, but Mildred Thayer never speaks without being spoken to and Gertrude Rahik- ka and Helga Kangas are noted for their taciturnity. Lody Koldys and Olave Oja are most graceful while the clumsiest boy is Johnny McLeod whose understudy is Assistant Professor Ford of the Science Department. X. Y. Z. Communication The Senior Play, "So This Is London" The Senior play,"'So This Is London" pre- sented by the Class of 1931 was acted in such an easy and efficient manner that I feel they should be congratulated very highly and a space taken up in the school paper showing appreciation. I, as a graduate, have always felt, as most naturally we all do, that my class play was the best, until I saw "So This Is London." My play, although being a non-royalty play, went over big and I thought we had made money until I learned 1931 could give a royalty play and make the money they did. I say-"Hats Off" to them. They certainly did not make a mistake when they selected their play. The American family, "The Drapers" played by Cole Bicknell, Dorothy Cochran and Roger Brook was acted out to perfection. Their man- ner of dress and slang would be hard to du- plicate. They showed us that Americans cer- tainly have got "IT" all over the English. The English "Beauchamps" skillfully acted by Arthur Carll, Dorothy Piercy and Lahja Penttinen should be more than merely men- tioned. The characters were hard to portray and the easy manner in which it was done speaks for itself. Annie Beagarie as Lady Ducksworth was a typical combination of English refinement and American slang: and as a successful matchmaker brought the two families to- gether in an amusing manner. The typical English business man, Alfred Honeycutt, with derby and "misplaced eye- brow" was none other than Fremont Stuart who certainly did justice to the part he played. TEMPLETON TEMPTER, 27 The butlers, Olavl Oja and Warren McCril- lis, though mentioned last are not least. They played the part without even a "grin." It was not only an unusual play but one deep and difficult to be produced with ease by amateurs. The wonderful manner in which it was presented reflects largely on the hard and tireless work of a most perfect coach. Roger and Lahja, you were perfect lovers. "Dot"-Watch out for your foot next time. "Bick"-You chew gum to perfection. Annie-You were divine. "Art" 8z "Dot"-You deserve a gold medal. Fremont-Lend us your derby and easy manner. Warren Sa Olavi-You are engaged to wait on T. H. S. for life. I will close hoping this article has done justice to the perfect production of "So This Is London." I congratulate you, Class of 1931! Almuna. What Would Happen lf: Genevieve was a coin instead of a Duquette. Marie was Quiet instead of a Wigler. Irene was a Martel instead of a Burpee. Elizabeth was a Poorman instead of a Rich- mond. Gerald was Dead instead of Bourn. Bartlett was a Skipper instead of a Stuart. Dorothy was a Redstone instead of a Green- wood. Florence was a Carter instead of a Wheeler Marion was a Mason instead of a Carpen- ter. ' Juliette was a Waitress instead of a Butler. Everyone had A in conduct. ' Ida Karols missed school. Rollen Woodbury came down from his stilts. Richard O'Brlen didn't have freckles and Donald Walton did. Lody Koldys Wasn't with Seniors and Mary Rota Was. Alice O'Brien was a blond and Stella Stone a redhead. Henry Denis as jumping center on our foot- ball team. Ellen Nykanen flunked an exam. Veikko Matilainen was seen courting a girl. Bernice was short, fat, and funny. Dibby didn't go up the Y Winchendon road every morning. The school called Mr. Stinson "Dad" instead of "Pop." Betty Saunders got to school at 8 o'clock. Winifred Parker got to bed early. Ruth Pierce should become bashful. The Gautreaus would stop laughing. DID YOU KNOW Among the list of slangy expressions re- turning to Templeton High School is one, "Oh My Cow." It reoriginated when two girls of the basketball team returned from Gardner with a farmer who has a small dairy ffarml business. The effects of this odorous ride were serious to those two individuals causing a slight illness. Rather white and wretched, the girls dressed for a game that evening, with no supper and minus some previous meal. But with the remaining members to cheer them on by shouting, "Oh My Cow" they Won a decided victory, which proves that nature's healthy odors have some effect on athletes. E. T. '32 I NEVER KNEW I never knew that Lincoln was famous, That the French call their women "Ma- dame" I ' And that' Great Napoleon crowned himself, At the famous Notre Dame. I never knew and never dreamed, "Dolly" Madison in her day was the fairest: ,And that Lindbergh married "the only one," Because to millions she Was an heiress. I never knew and above all things Would you ever think they would execute kings! Well, they did in France sometime ago, I know it's true 'cause they've told us so. Louis XVI was the unfortunate one, And his wife Marie Antoinette. Now here and there I hear people say, "I'm glad Massachusetts is 'Wet'." Disraeli at one time was Eng1and's prime minister, He wore a red bow on each shoe. He replied to many of Gladstone's speeches, Another "I never knew". Here and there I gather "slowly but surely" The things that I never knew. And I know some day, Ifll be proud to Say. "The things I don't know are few." . K. A. G.

'34 28 TEMPLETON ' THE SOUNDS OF NIGHT The dusk was softly falling The birds had ceased their calling The moon was swiftly climbing High up into the sky Then out came the owls for their evening meal Awakening the world with their shrleks and squeals As the moon climbed higher and higher. E. L. '34 THE LI'I'I'LE OLD FLIVVER Apologies to Eugene Field The little old ilivver is covered with dust Where in the shed it stands: The little old hom is hoarse with rust And it's forgotten by human hands. Time was when the little old Ford was new, And the horn was passing fair, And that was the time when last it blew, And still it's standing there! "Now there you'll stay 'til you're sold," I said "And you won't make any noise." So, skipping olT to the new car shed I took a ride with the boys. And to express our joy we sang a song As up the hills we flew Oh, the miles are many and the miles are long But still that car looks new. Ay, faithful to me that little Ford stands, Still in the same old place. Awaiting the touch of the mechanic's hands Or the smile of a junk man's face: And I wonder as waiting the long night through In the dust of this rickety chair, Oh, what will happen when the bills are due And I've not a cent to spare. L. K. P. '31 SMILE Just think when you are lonely That your smiles are not in vain, So smile my dear when the sun shines, And smile when e'er it rains. And every time you feel blue-smile, You'll flnd lt worth your while. How can you be gay On any sort of day If you forget to smile? So smile, just smile You'll fmd it worth your while. If you wear a face Wreathed in smiles every day You'll find your place, No matter what the way. A SUMMER TWILIGHT The gathering shadows were hurrying by, As the sun sank slowly in crlmsoned skies, The stars sparkled forth, ln a silvery light And the old moon glimmered all thru' the long night. The whippoorwill's song rang loud and clear, And the chorus of frogs in the swamp sounded queer, And I heard in the distance a mournful cry, That ended in a sad and trailing sigh. The nodding daisies felt the falling dew, And the breeze of the wind as it softly blew. And the streamlet that murmurs a dreamy ' tune, Made rippling waves in the light of the moon. S. P. '34 NIGHT IN BALDWIN SVILLE Here we have no ordinary nights: Darkness sklms forward drenched in power And wheeling mysteriously Hurls blackness like awhlrllng dervish Conjurs heathen prayers. Graveyards grow dejected tombstones That lean askew, Letting a cold moon shine slantingly upon them. Cottages chlselled out of the sky- Stark and strong With blurs of white chimney smoke Inert and ghostly- As though pins had fastened them to die, Stare solemnly at the stars as if- To guard their secrets From the prying eyes of night. D. P. C. '31 INDIAN SUMMER Golden sunset moulds the earth, Woodland blessed with shaded gownsg- Shades of sadness, wisdom, mirth Caught in webs of autumn mounds.

But how many people really practice what they preach? Not very many. The town of Baldwinsvllle ought to wake up to the fact that the lives of many school children are en- dangered while crossing the streets at the Narrangansett House corner and at the cor- ner of Maple and South Main streets. For many years there have been no mis- fortunes-no lives lost. But there is always the first-and who knows when it may hap- pen, and whose child it may be? Why not insure the lives of your children and your fu- ture happlness by having someone at those places to help the children cross the streets safely? Why wait until someone is killed be- fore protecting the children at the time of going to and from school at these crossings? Think it over.
