TO THE STUDENTS OF THE TEXTILE HIGH SCHOOL: I
IT gives me greaT pleasure To exTend To you, aT The end of The TirsT year
in our new TexTiIe High School,.greeTings.
My mind oTTen runs back over The pasT ThirTeen years To The Tall of
I9I9 when The school was esTabIished in old P. S. 26, I24 WesT 3OTh STreeT.
Public School 26 is sTiIl one of The annexes oT The school.
In The Tall oT I9l9 The TexTile High School was esTablished wiTh 84 sTu-
denTs and The TirsT graduaTion Took place in June, I92I. One oT our presenT
insTrucTors, Mr. OresTes STanley Lapolla, was a member oT our TirsT graduaTing
class. Mrs. VanBrunT, our senior clerk, was The clerk assigned To The school.
No comparison can be made beTween The school sTarTed in l9I9 and The
presenT new building excepT ThaT The sTudenT body in boTh cases was land isl
The opening of The TexTile High School was in a building wiThouT
equipment wiTh a poor gas IighTing sysTem, and primary school TurniTure.
The members OT The TirsT class spenT Their Time during shop periods removing
parTiTions,' coal lockers, primary school TurniTure, insTalling shelves, laboraTory
Tables, and machinery. DespiTe all The obsTacles placed in The way of The
TTrsT graduaTing class I Teel ThaT every one has succeeded in securing a promi-
nenT posiTion in professional, business, or arT IiTe. They were serious young
men and received an eTTecTive educaTion according To PresidenT EllioTT's
Theory oT educaTionaI value-"All subiecTs have The same menTal power if
pursued wiTh The same inTeresT, same Time alloTmenT, and same purpose."
These young men received Their educaTion amidsT The many obsTacles oT
pioneer work oT esTablishing The school. I do really believe These sTudenTs
received a Training equal To ThaT given To The sTudenTs in our new building.
IT is True ThaT Today we have beTTer equipmenT buT whaT was lacking in
equipmenT in The TirsT class was compensaTed by Their greaT inTeresT and by
power provoked Through overcoming diTTiculTies and obsTacles.
IT The TirsT graduaTing class achieved such high honor and accomplished
so much under so many diTficuITies, The presenT graduaTing class oughT To do
more and be an even greaTer crediT To The school.
I hold up To our sTudenTs in The school Today The work oT our TirsT gradu-
aTes in achieving scholarship, service, and characTer.

ll' was a slormy nighi' in The middle of December where our sfory begins
or should l say . . . ends? The wild wind drove lhe snow and rain scurrying
over +he sleer-coafed ground. The single searchlighf of fhe deserfed 'rrain
yard was circling idly, ignoring The fury of +he elemenls. In i'rs palh wa
suddenly revealed a sfaggering figure which looked like a man. As if came
closer one could see lhal his unshaven 'Face was gauni' and blue wifh cold . .
or was if hunger? His cloihes hung in lalrers and fhe wind flapped greedily a
fhem. His lips and iaws were working. A. gleam of lighl' fell on a universifj
pin in his coalf lapel. A sudden gusl of wind blew his ragged hal' off anc
immediaiely his hair was plaslered againsl' +he from' of his face by 'rhe winc
and rain. Wiih a sob The man 'lripped over a rail and fell lengfhwise inlc
Jrhe mud. Slowly, ever so slowly, he arose. The rain was slreaming down hi:
lace cuHing a paih, 'rhrough 'rhe mud on his face. His chesf was heaving
wilh lhe girear sobs which racked him. There was a frickle coming from hi:
He arose and srood gazing wisifully in +he direclion from whence he hac
come. Wearily he lurned and noiiced a lunch counler for railroad men
Wifh a rasping cry he srrelched ou+ his hand and slaggered 'lo +he windovi
which displayed all soris of foods. His breaih made a haze on lhe colc
window pane and he fried +o brush i'r away. Suddenly a wild lighf appearec:
in his eyes. He drevq back warily and picked up a large s'rone and wilh e
hoarse cry he senl' if sailing fowards 'rhe bounfiful window. lf shaflered wifi'
a s'I'ar+ling' crash bul ihe man had sunk ro +he ground . . . unconscious. The
exciiemenf around him soon died down, Hs ardor dampened by 'rhe rain.
The sfill figure sfirred nof. The wind sfill howled as if in friumph buf fhe
rain slowly ceased as if in sorrow. The soul of fhe sfill form had depar'red-
Now lef us frace fhe beginning of so fragic an ending.
Johnny was wounded in fhe lasf agonizing few momenfs before Armisfice.
He awoke in a reioicing afmosphere. The Armisfice was signed. Johnny slepf,
af peace wifh fhe world.
On his arrival home he was greefed as a hero. The parades of veferans
were cheered and polificians orafed wi+h pafriofic eloquence. Buf soon fhe
enfhusiasm died. Johnny could noi find a posifion. A girl had faken his
place. The democracy he had foughf for had furned againsf him. lf was fhe
old sforyq fhe refurning soldier finding' fhings foreign fo him. Johnny found
prohibifion, and fhe money in fhe hands of fhe rackefeers and crooked
polificians. And fhus Johnny came marching home.
Unshaven and unkempf, Johnny had become a hobo, buf in his eyes fhere
burnf a fierce lighf. This was an inspirafion fo save himself by wrifing a book
felling fhe frufh abouf his advenfures, and more offen-fhan-nof. misadvenfures.
Hunger would no+ be denied nor would fhirsf. Johnny siole food and drink.
All humanify would iail him and deny him his measly exisfence.
A sform was coming up and in fhe cold, Johnny lay shivering near an
ufferly inadequafe fire. The gnawing pain in his sfomach was forfuring him.
His sense of pride would nof permif him fo again sfeal when possibly employ-
menl' mighf come soon. So he sfarved on. As fhe wind increased in volume
and fhe snow and rain sfarfed fo come down Johnny shrugged his shoulders.
'righfened his bell, and gof up fo leave. He sfood for a momenf gazing af
fhe lasf sparks go ouf of his fire. He raised his fhin hands complainingly fo
fhe clouded and merciless heavens and uffered a low mournful cry. He
sfarfed 'ro frudge painfully across fhe frainyard. Bul' fhe sform desired re-
venge and began in earnesf. An hour or so lafer Johnny lay . . . a vicfim of
fhe democracy for which he had foughf . . . dead!
The fire a+ which he had been warming himself revealed 'rhe ashes of
hall:-'Finished manuscripf which was fo have been his salvafion . . . Johnny

now came marching +o +he home of his Crealor.

"Come ou+, come out" 'rhey gayly cried

A FRESHMAN LETTER -
Albert Wilson, 7-I
You menlioned lhe olher day lhal you would like lo have us newcomers
lo lhe school lell you a lew lhings aboul ourselves. l've decided lwisely or
unwiselyl lo give you a Iiflle of my Iile hislory.
I wasn'l born in a log cabin nor did I cul down any cherry lrees lallhough
once in a while I lell lhe lrulhl so I guess I haven'l much chance ol ever
becoming presidenl. I-lowever, l'd much ralher be a dilch4digger, anyway:
because you don'l gel so much mud slung al you. I was born lfor whal reason
I know noll in New York Cily. I spenl lhe lirsl six years ol my Iile copying
lhe piclures in lhe funny papers. Then I embarked on my career in lhal
greal inslilulion, School. In lwo or lhree years I became quile adepl al
signing my own reporl card and giving excuses for being Iale. In lhe follow-
ing lwo years I maslered lhe arl of going down lhe school sleps lhree al a
lime. Since lhen I have learned a lew olher lhings.
I never was much ol a speaker and am lairly bad al wriling las you've
probably guessedl bul I am al my worsl when I lry wriling poelry. ll can
lrulhlully be said. lhal whenever I lake a "crack" al poelry, someone usually
lakes a "crack" al me. The peak of my ambilion is lo be able lo pass a
subway "ad" wilhoul marking il up.
Following my usual cuslom. I will be a greal success al lhis school.

Max O'Brien was a high school siudenf arfending Texiile High. He we
neiiher dumb nor exceedingly brilliant "Filly-liHy," as his faihe
pul if. He lacked +he family profile, and we mighl even call him handsome.
One day, af The sfari of his high school career, while walking along 'rh
main floor corridor, Max saw a cerfain young miss called lfor convenience
Mary. Our hero sfared info Mary's eyes for a splil-second: 'rhen he confinuei
down ihe hall.
From 'rhen on Max was a changed man. He could noi sleep, he couli
no+ concen+ra+e in classes, he could no+ even indulge in ice-cream sodas.
Max saw Mary several limes ihereafier buf never did he have enoug
courage 'ro speak fo her. Meanwhile, Mary musi have noiiced him: for
several 'rimes Max caughi her, unawares, gazing in his direcfion.
Max was noi idle. He learned her full name fhrough a friend of his. A
This +ime, however, he did no home worlc, pariicularly no Spanish homeworl
lwe musf noi 'iorgel ihall. Like all oiher love-sfriclcen youfhs, he performei
many funny sfunfs ius+ To aHrac+ his lady love's alienfion.
Some of 'rhese s+un+s made him appear so ridiculous +ha+ Mary could nc
help buf laugh af him. Thus dishearfened, our hero disconlinued his iollify
A year passed buf sfill +he shy Maxie had noi spolcen 'lo Mary.
One fine day Max fool: if in+o his head +0 loolc up her 'phone numbel

Her iaiher answered. Max limidly asked lin a falseffol,
"ls Mary home?"
"No," replied her falher, "are you Sylvia?" Max was al a loss for word:
"Yes," lied our hero.
Page F of! y- eight
"Mary leTT Tor your house abouT an hour ago," replied The voice over
"Oh, yeah? Thanks."
He hung up. Whew, ThaT was a close shave. Max was nonplussed. WhaT
would he have said if Mary had answered The 'phone?
The nexT day he wore a quilTy look on his Tace as he passed Mary in
The TiTTh-week marks came and Max received poor marks in English,
HisTory. French. and Spanish lwhich we musT noT TorgeTl.
Weeks passed. He decided To Try again. He called The number once
more. This Time Mary answered. Again he employed The "soTTo voice."
Hello, Mary, This is a girl in your French class."
He heard her giggle. She never had Taken French in her liTe.
Then she spoke.
"ls This Dave?"
No iT wasn'T Dave, buT Max's eyes Turned Trom deep blue To dark grey.
Who was This "Dave" person, and whaT did he mean To her?
Then Max Tried To Tell her who he was wiThouT menTioning his name. For
if he should give his name and she should say she didn'T know him-Oh! The
sTing oT deTeaTl
The 'phone call ended aTTer a greaT loaTTle of wiTs. Max was careful noT
To give himselT away by Talking' Too much. The nexT day in The audiTorium saT

Suddenly The dim ouTline of a house loomed up before me. l looked for

Thaf? A queer shriek pierced The sTillness of The foresT. lT grew louder and
louder. lT sounded as if some one were in agony. l did noi' know whaT To do.
My feel' were paralyzed and I could' noT run. Then The sounds sTopped. Sud-
denly, and much louder The noise reTurned. l heard shrieks and groans, high
wails, and low grumbles. My head whirled. The rumors concerning The
house musT be True. Abrupfly The sounds sfopped.
AgainsT The dim ouTline of The window l saw a man pick up a large

I-Ie is very, very Tiny, buT he means a whole, whole IOT,

A wee. wee elt
All by himselt
One bright sunshiny day.
Just looked around
And planned to run away.
Now all he had
Was a lily pad
With which to round the bend
But all alone
He lett his home
To see the river's end.
t-le watched the slcy
Till by and by
He telt an inward pain
Naught came his way.
That live long day.
l-le longed tor home again.
Then very soon
The laughing' moon - '
Looked on his sleepy head,
Sent silvery beams
That brought him dreams
And he wolce in his trundle bed.
