For that day Bradley Chapin will never forget us, for the year it started we will always remember him. Remember the snowball fight he started above the North Wall-the day he missed class, because he'd been thrown in the Pond-the grin with which he so often terminated a class twenty minutes ahead of time-his constant lending of knowledge to us until we could develop our own-the many problems of class dances, colleges, and Senior theses which he helped to solve with his wisdom, enthusiasm and experience-the smile which gave us confidence-the understanding which made a gigantic dilemma insignificant? We, the Class of 1953, remember and for these memories dedicate the SPARK to this small, grinning and fearless dynamo. 2 MR. BRADLEY CHAPIN l' J-tpi,fA,iVV 'r , . , fp., 9 ' I ' ' 2 wiv!

O God, help us to understand better that which cannot be readily seen, to feel that which is hard to feel, and to hear that which cannot be heard, for we must reach out beyond ourselves these days, with mind and soul, to renew our faith in things beyond our realm. Help us young people, to find the road that leads to the good life, and keep us on that road, though it have many a curve and many a hill. Give us courage to surmount those hills, and to carry on, when the road seems roughest. Help us, in these times, to see beyond the artificial luster, nowadays demonstrated so freely. Help us by giving us a true sense of values, on which to base our ideals and future goals in life, by which properly to evaluate our ideas and pastimes, and better to understand and control our emotions and passions. Help us to know what is right, and to want to do what is right, for most of us know perfectly well what we ought to do, but don't always do it. Thereby may we become better individuals, and serve our country better. In Thy spirit's name we ask for this guidance.

His sturdy spirit and determination give him that "up and at 'em" attitude in his studies and in sports. This is seen in his performance on this year's soccer team and as captain of this year's basketball team. Terry's three years at Park have been characterized mainly by his leadership, friendliness, sports ability, and his know-how-to-have-fun. He has served in several class positions, among which was the iob of Senior class president. His efficiently placid dark-eyed exterior never gives hints of what fires are ablaze beneath. He often gives the intentionally misleading impression that his way with girls is completely their own idea. lWe wonderll lt is the combination of energy, spirit, and modest efficiency which makes Terry the likeable person he is. "A merry heart maketh a cheery countenance." 4 PAUL L.

Vous Stes le bien-venu, monsieur!" It wouldn't be hard to imagine this in the "Paris Soir," since the very mention of Paul recalls enthusiastic reports about Europe and his strong determination to go back there soon. He certainly ought to fit in quite well since his dress is worthy of an Englishman, and his generosity and love of gaiety are unequaled by those of any Frenchman. His knowledge of financial affairs would top that of any Scotchman, and his temper could beat that of a Russian, Spaniard, and Italian all rolled into one. Park School has profited from Paul's questioning spirit and desire for real understanding which have stimulated many to re-examine the va- lidity of some of their pet ideas, particularly since Paul's charm and finesse make his criticisms easy to take. "The heart is as big as the voice is loud."

You can be sure of getting the help you need, whether it is turning the heel of a sock you are knitting or organizing an important proiect. Jean's driving power has helped pub- lish the LATEST at times when it seemed impossible to make the dead- line. Her work on the Study Hall Committee has been the downfall of many an unruly student, but she administered iustice fairly, and the supervision of the study hall has reflected her influence. ' Under her chairmanship, last year's Production Committee succeeded in the difficult iob of coordinating in one program two very different presentations. Extremely versatile, Jean has great ability also in the field of sports, where she has both participated and led. Because of her friendly outgoing personality, Jean is not limited to serious pursuits alone. She is a good mixer, and has a variety of in- terests both in and out of school. "All succeeds with people who are of sweet and cheerful disposition." 5 HAROLD L. RUSLANDER COMMUNITY CHEST CHAIRMAN-3 FOOTBALL-2, 3, 4 ATHLETIC COMMITTEE-4 Co-Captain-4 STUDY HALL COMMITTEE-4 SOCCER-I CHORUS-I, 2, 3 BASKETBALL BOYS' DISCUSSION CLUB-2, 3, 4 Manager-4 LATEST WRESTLING-I, 2, 3 Circulating Manager-4 TRACK-I, 2, 3, 4 Contributor-I, 2, 3 SPARK Contributor-I, 2, 3 The solid workmanship that is Harold's aim in his hobby, printing, also makes him look for good organization and quality of performance in all phases of our school life. To any discussion he contributes from a wide range of experiences a carefully considered iuclgement, but tempers his seriousness with a subtle sense of humor and a pleasant smile. Through his years at Park, Harold has made use of his special skill by printing handbills, tickets, programs for many Park functions, and head- lines for the LATEST. Because of his exacting sense of the value of money, he was often called upon to serve as financial chairman. His success as chairman of the Community Chest campaign in 1952 is proof of his thoroughness and drive. Because of this same spirit the football team depended on Harold's power to tackle and block the opposing team, as well as the coach. Besides participating also in wrestling and track he showed his general interest in sportsmanship as manager of the basketball team and as a member of the Athletic Committee during his Senior year. "It is the part of a wise man sometimes to be siIent."

Board-I, 3 We are fortunate to have such a talented person as Carol in our midst. With her interest, ability and discrimination, Carol has been an active member of this year's Production Committee. Her lively musical sessions always draw an eager crowd and inspire our other virtuosos to chime in. Especially at the "after-thesis" party Carol, along with the other senior musicians, really sparked things up. Carol modifies our blue Monday feeling with her cheery "Did you have a good time this weekend?" Rousing ourselves from our weariness, we think back to our date, look up at Carol's smiling face and sigh, "maybe life isn't so bad after all!" "With Carol even a blue note has to cheer up." 6 JEAN H. HOOKER STUDY HALL CHAIRMAN-3 COUNTRY FAIR COMMITTEE-3 CHORUS-3, 4 onus' DISCUSSION CLUB--3, 4 LATEST Business Manager-4 BASKETBALL-3 With the cry "something must be done about this!" Jean has delved into every iob, from heading the Study Hall Committee or making posters for Country Fair and productions to managing the business for the LATEST. Her activities on the costume committee for our spring per- formances have shown her exceptional capacity for work and her efficiency. Jean's fellow students respect her for her unfailing sense of right and her inner need to uphold the right as she has seen it. From her deep knowledge of human troubles rises an understanding of people and a desire to help them with their problems. But lest you see her as a solemn Cassandra, remember her sparkling unconventionality, the unconcern with which she pokes fun at herself, her ability to see the humor of incongruous situations and human foibles, including her own. "Time cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety." ROBERT MORRISON cHoRus-3, 4 "N BOYS' DISCUSSION CLUB-3, 4 LATEST Contributor-3 SO CCER-3 Manager-4 BOWLIN G-4 TRACK Ma na ger-3 "Nothing is impossible to the willing heart." lf you ever need Bob, you'll probably find him enioying the sociable atmosphere of Streeter. This haunt is like a second home to him, and he is the one most responsible for keeping it neat for his classmates. Once emerged from there he makes his way without over-agitation, smiling at the frantic hustle about him. But watch Bob in one of his more determined moods! When he suc- cessfullyl assumes charge of the young fry in the school bus, it becomes apparent that he has some qualities most valuable for his planned vo- cation, social work, namely persuasive affability and determination to create order out of chaos. As for showmanship and range of voice as the Moth, he can easily vie with Yma Sumac. -7 DENNIS KENDRICK WILSON CHORUS-I, 2, 3, 4 CHESS CLUB-3, 4 , LATEST-I, 2, 3, 4 BOYS' DISCUSSION CLUB-3, 4 PENPUSHERS'-I, 2, 3 PUBLIC SPEAKING CLUB-3 Editor'-4 Managing Editor-3 SPARK Lit.

He is never afraid to express his opinion in a school assembly, even though others may not always agree with him. He takes his responsibili- ties seriously and doesn't mind working hard in carrying them out. In his academic work as well as in extra curricular activities Denny shows tremendous drive and determination to succeed, as evidenced in his work in the Chemistry Lab, on the Latest, and as Stephen in the musical play, "Lost In The Stars." Denny is a wrestler and has competed in many school matches. This year he is captain of the team. Playing center he was an important member of the football team also. "Labor ipse voluptas."

She has been deeply concemed with understanding the many problems that are posed by a true self-government of the school, and no discussion would be complete without the help of her clear thought and firm convictions. ' Many a committee has sought her advice and cooperation, from sheer menial tasks to important proiects, because they know they can count on her to give the full measure of her attention and energy to a iob. As program chairman this year, Peggy, with planning and foresight, has kept our very complicated schedule of activities from being snarled up. People are at ease in Peggy's company, because she makes them feel that she wants their friendship as much as they want hers. "Oh, there is a girl that's known in these parts, Her name is Peggy Lyon, and she's won our hearts. So we'd like to know A girl with more go- And we'lI stand by her to the end-oh!"

He was dedicated to the proposition that nature is the best teacher, and that the wide open spaces are the best school. Like his great prototype, honest Abe, however, he found a consuming interest for the benefit of his fellowmen, in his case the study of electricity and radio. lt seems altogether fitting and proper that Park School profited from his accomplishments for its Spring productions and dances, by making him chairman of its lighting equipment. Karl's straightforward manner, his determination, and his clear sense of values have won him the respect of his fellow students, and, as vice- president of the Student Council, he has been their best guarantee that government of the people, by the people, and for the people has not yet perished from this earth. "The force of his own merit makes his way." 9 SPARK CHORUS-l, 2, 3, 4 DAVID BUNIS ORCHESTRA-l, 2, 3, 4 WRESTLING-I, 2 BOYS' DISCUSSION CLUB-2, 3, 4 BASKETBALL-3, 4 CHESS-2 BASEBALL-I LATEST TRACK-l, 2, 3, 4 Contributor-l, 2, 3, 4 confrsbum.-1, 2, 3, 4 ' The old saying "Good things come in small packages,' fits David to a "T," because, like Napoleon, he combines a small stature with a mag- netic and conquering personality. With a bright smile he can walk right through a difficulty which his more elongated classmates would have to meet head-on. The most remarkable thing about this big little guy is his capacity for fun and sociability. Of the laughs this year's senior class has had, a good many were caused by something David said or did,-and that is quite an achievement considering the competition. Helpful and good-natured, David can magically provide a car when- ever one is needed to solve the problems of thumb-weary' hitchhikers, or whizz to "the corner" to furnish the famished seniors with some de- lectable refreshments. To see and hear David play the trumpet in the school orchestra is an experience, and a very unique one. The same enthusiasm that captures him while he plays this instrument also animates him on the basketball court and the ski slope, where his performance simply sweeps the by- stander aff his feet. "He is always laughing, for he has an infinite deal of wit."

Gail has been a member of the Park Community since her nursery school days and has enriched it with her strength, her reliability and her quiet friendliness. Always ready to lend a helping hand, she has shown that she is capable of dealing with a variety of .responsibilities small or big, whether helping out in the nursery school, or greeting visiting teams and serving them refreshments, whether designing and executing posters for a school function or working on a piece of ceramics, she has ac- complished the iobs with steady work and great attention to detail. On hockey fleld and basketball court Gail has distinguished herself by skill and true sportsmanship. Her love for sports and her pleasant manner helped her serve ably as team manager and also as chairman of the Hospitality Committee in her Junior Year. l0 BARBARA ELLEN HURWITZ DINING ROOM CHAIRMAN-4 LATEST PROPERTIES CHAIRMAN OF Contributor-3, 4 PRODUCTION-2 BOWLING-4 COUNTRY FAIR COMMITTEE-2 MODERN DANCE-2, 3 PRODUCTION COMMITTEE-3 TENNIS-I, 2 DINING ROOM COMMITTEE-2 GOLF-3 CHORUS-I, 2, 3, 4 ARCHERY-I GIRLS' DISCUSSION CLUB-2, 3, 4 With an air of nonchalance Babs has breezed through the process of being educated, and has mastered the many skills demanded with equanimity and poise. Her classmates, too, have found this grueling experience relieved by the atmosphere of light-hearted frivolity that Babs could create for them, even on the gloomiest day. And yet, in her years with us we have come to appreciate her as a genuine friend with deep'human insight, sensi- tivity and straightforwardness. Babs has carried out the iob of Dining Room Chairman graciously and has steered both, her committee and the dining room, with a light hand. Since Babs has already seen so much of the globe, we will not be surprised to hear some day, that her desire to travel has found ex- pression in interplanetary expeditions.

A contagious tee-hee, a willingness to help, and a genuine love for people have come to spell "Bubbles," In the last two years that we've known Barb, her sparkling personality and her ability to make friends easily have become a part of us all. The "c'mon, haven't you any spirit" line shows the interest in Park she so quickly conceived, which we will never forget when we think of field hockey, basketball or Girls' Dis- cussion Club. With Bubbles go her artistic talents, her love for those "cute nursery schoolers," and-we fear-her most prized possession," the meat wagon." Behind her, Bubbles leaves the memories of a gay sense of humor, a cheery disposition, and a heart as big as that smile, that makes her a good friend to all.

In this time she has become well known for her cool, calm manner and her thoughtfulness and consideration for others. Faced with any iob or problem Amanda is able to develop a plan of attack, rally her re- sources, and gain command of the situation. In her Junior year Amanda, as Business Editor of the Spark, coped with the ditiicult task of organizing the book in a very efficient manner. In sports Amanda is on important addition to any team whether it be Field Hockey, Baseball or Basketball, for besides being a good athlete she has the spirit that carries a team to victory. As chairman ofthe newly formed Athletic Committee she has done a fine iob in welcoming visiting teams and providing home hospitality for those who need it.

This past yearlhe has been the governing force behind the Student Council and the Constitutional Committee and has conducted all meetings with characteristic dignity and humor. Charlie has various means of expressing his unique sense of humor, but in our intense philosophical discussions, he has shown deliberate thought and a deep sense of values. Charlie is o whiz on skis and a powerhouse on the football team, al- though his spectacular touchdowns were not always given recognition by the referees. However, he would rather run up the scales, than down the field, and his trumpet has added some cool tones to the instrumental combo of Sernotfsky, Finnell and Keeler. From his properly-soiled white bucks to his collegiate pink shirt, Charlie is a "Man of Distinction." "Great is our admiration for one who speaks fluently and wisely." I3 THE WILL We, the class of i953 at the Park School, expecting short- ly to depart from the hallowed halls of said institution of learning, do make this our last will and testament, bequeath- ing to various persons sundry items useful in the Park School life.

No truer words were ever spoken, as I found out during the last part of the 1952 school term. I was one of the ten people nominated for president of the Student Council. With the honor of the nomina- tion also came the honor of giving a speech to the student body. The person nominated had a chance to decline, if he didn't wish to become president, or if he simply didn't want to deliver a speech. I must admit, at the time I didn't wish to do either. The first thing I decided to do was talk to ci member of the faculty about my problem. I discussed the issue with Miss Maggiore, and she explained to me how people in the same situation had dealt with the problems. She also explained the duties of a president, and I left the office with a good idea what was ahead of me. The choice was my own, I could decline and therefore take the easy way out, or make the speech and stay in the running. My first reaction toward giving the speech was not a very good one. I had let other people make up my mind that it was difficult to give such a speech. But before I could worry about giving the speech, I had to write it. , For two nights I thought about it and finally decided to weave my talk around one main topic. This was unity, and from then on it was comparatively easy. With the outline of the talk came the definite decision to go through with it. After the rough draft, I drew up the speech and studied it until the day I wqs to present my piece of work to the student body. I admit now I was pretty scared, not Because of the delivery, but because of the compo- sition of the speeclm I didn't know how the student body would react to the criticisms and suggestions for improvements from someone who had been far from an angel during the past year. They received my speech very well, and when it was done, I was very pleased that I had gone through with the task. That night I evaluated my problem and came to this conclusion: I realized that if I had declined, I would not have thought about the school and my personal reactions toward it. I would have lost valuable experience in presenting a speech to a group of people. Last and most important of all, I met a challenge and conquered it. This may help me in later life in meeting another challenge of much more importance and meaning.

L'lNSTRUCTION Notre vie est si courte, il faut I'employer, lnstruisez-vous enfants, des l'age le plus tendre. Vous serez malheureux si vous cessez d'apprendre, Et c'est un iour perdu qu'un iour sans travailler. LEARNING Life is so short that we must try, To do our best before we die. Learn, when you are young of age, Before life turns another page, If you cease to learn too quick, You will destroy that burning wick. Work is fun, if you realize: It also helps to make you wise. Sandra Mols Grade X LEARNING How very short is our span of life, That it passes us with little strife. When we are all so very small, We do our learning with no trouble at all, But if we stop this in our youth, Later on we'll know no truth. For what is a day if we haven't done Our work, our learning, and our fun? Ann Prescott Grade X LEARNING Our lifetime is such a limited span.

' ' . 1, The Council, the governing body of Middle School, elects its oliiicers twice a year. Robbie Robbins is this year's president. The same rules for council slips were kept as last yea r. Coun- cil slips are given to those who break the rules of the school. A sub-committee also was organized, which takes care of the Council slips and supervises the working-off of these. The council started another sub-committee to help rewrite our Middle School constitution. This revision has progressed to article tive, so tar. We have had various visitors at our Middle School assemblies, one of which was Miss Hani from Japan, another Tom Two-Arrows, an American lndian. The council authorized another committee with several purposes, such as producing a magazine and functioning as a service committee to help some hospital. The plans for Middle School Day are now before the council.

The leadership of the Study Hall Committee provides us with better control of our study halls. The members of all tour classes share in the responsibility of proctoring each day. A list of proctoring assignments is posted once a week. Study Hall rules have been approved by the School As- sembly, and offenders of these rules are tried by the Com- mittee. This year the Student Council worked on several proiects. It organized an Athletic Committee to replace the Hospi- tality Committee of former years. In response to a request made by the Freshman girls it authorized a Discussion Club for them. It organized school assemblies in which money from the Student Council Fund was allocated for a sound- proot ceiling in the library as part of a proiect to improve the physical appearance of the Upper School. The school assembly passed a plan for the enforcement of school smok- ing rules, presented by the Council. The revision of the School Constitution, as foreseen by the Student Council, is under way. THE STUDY HALL COMMITTEE Velma Rice, Jean Hooker Martha Keeler, Mr. Silsby advisor, Jean Buell, chairman man, Virginia Prescott. 1 1 Betsy Prescott, Tomb chair- This committee's main function is to keep order in the din- ing room and arrange the seating list every week, so that each pupil has a chance to become well acquainted with the other members of the school. However, at the same time the committee tries to make the dining room a cheerful place without too many rigid restrictions, so that both, the pupils and the faculty, may feel at ease and relax between the , academic hours of the clay. This year the committee intro- duced the idea of having announcements immediately after Grace and the dismissal of each table as soon as everyone there has finished eating. These aims the Dining Room Com- mittee has successfully carried out. COMMITTEE SEATED: Barbara Hurwitz, Mr. Pro- venzano, advisor, Sue Hecht, Frances Macdonald.

This year, as a completely new committee, the Athletic Committee has had some foundations to lay and has there- fore not yet become a well-known part of the student ac- tivities. It was organized a year ago to be responsible to the council as co-ordinator of the functions of the Athletic Department with the interests of the students and the faculty. lt accomplished several effective means of hospitality for visiting teams, started a new group of enthusiastic cheer leaders, and began what will be a three year drive for new girls' uniforms. These visible accomplishments are the results of many extensive discussions laying the groundwork for a strong committee, which will come to tie the sports program and the students more closely together.

THE CHORUS L THE PRODUCTION COMMITTEE Under the chairman, Patty Dodd, appointed by the Coun- cil, the Production Committee composed of two members from each class, one appointed and one elected, functioned in the following manner: it organized the Eight Plays, to- gether with the Middle and Lower School groups, it planned an all-school assembly for Thanksgiving. For Christmas a musical program with songs in French, latin and Spanish, with readings from The Bible, and with choral and solo songs was outlined. Under the guidance of Mr. Doblin, plays and musical works were considered for the Spring Production. "Lost in the Stars" was chosen for its musical and dramatic qualities. The task of organizing and steering the various committees co-operating to make the spring performance a success is in the hands of the Production Committee.

After a maior reorganization The LATEST stat? has pulled together to produce o paper the school can be proud of. It has the readers' interest to such an extent that it can be said that "At Park School nearly everybody reads The LATEST," as may be seen in the dining room when it is handed out. Its various departments, the editorials, the faculty column, the sports, the outside Park reports, and "The Inquiring Reporter" have offered news of lively interest.

Without burning the midnight oil and spending untold hours during spring vacation, the Spdrk Boards got the yearbook to the printer on the deadline date this year. Two Spark ad-days, set aside in October and November, brought in a considerable amount of the advertising necessary to pay for the yearbook. On the suggestion of the Mothers' Council all parents were told about a chance of patronizing the Spark, and we had a very satis- factory response. Our amateur photographers supported the Art Board by taking pictures of a variety of scenes around school, and, thanks to Mr. O'Connor, contributions were streaming in to the Lit. Board.

All girls in the three upper classes, who are interested, may ioin the Girls' Discussion Club. The topics for discussion are chosen by the secretary, Barbara Howard, on the basis of suggestions made by the club members. Some of this year's topics have been: The Presi- dential Elections, an essay "What is WorthwhiIe," and the planning of a Christmas party for the entire Upper School. This was a great success and included a Latin skit, singing, and unusual presents for the faculty. Another project was that of sending money to Holland for Hood relief. The club has also contributed to the Class Day program. The club provides an opportunity for the girls to learn to express themselves 'Freely in a public discussion, and also to benefit by other people's viewpoints on various subiects. , THE GIRLS' DISCUSSION CLUB 38 THE FRESHMAN GIRLS' DISCUSSION CLUB STANDING: Gaby Stevens, Christa Grauer, Judy Bridge, Laura Damon, Pat Johnson.

The Freshman Girls' Discussion Club, formed newly this year, has under the chairman- ship of Ginny Prescott met monthly at the home of one of its members to discuss their prob- lems. Topics for discussion have varied from social problems to how the class as a whole can help improve the school and student relationships. The Boys' Discussion Club is open to any boy in the Upper School who wishes to join it. The club is more informal than the Girls' Discussion Club, however, it is not only for social gathering and discussion, but a Club strictly for people genuinely interested in the topics being discussed. The meetings are held in the Stone House on the school grounds, and the boys bring their own dinners. After the re-organization of the Club last year it is proving to be a very promising and worth while organization. THE Bovs' DISCUSSION CLUB gg 39 R :L I!

STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS Do you ever have the feeling, as you are falling asleep, of all the things you have to dq and figure in your mind how to do them? I am often in this position and what am I to do about it? As I am falling asleep I think of all the letters I am to an- swer. For weeks I have had Maggie's letter on my desk. Last night I wrote, mentally, exactly what I wanted to tell her, of mom and dad, of the dog, the fire in the summer house and that I still loved her. This morning with pen in hand I can't recollect a single idea that seemed so vivid iust last night. The letters keep coming, and I never get anywhere. As fast as I write them, I forget them. In my musing I thought about how messy my closet was, how unorganized my desk was and ofthe windows that must be washed. What a system I have worked out to make these tasks fun and simple! and darn it, this morning they seem like the same old drudgery I have had to face for years. I lay in bed the other night reciting over and over a poem, that was assigned to me to learn in French class. Several times in this mental recitation I forgot a word or a line and was forced to turn on the light to review the piece. Then and only then, was my mind fully at rest for a good night's sleep. This art of daydreaming, or nightdreaming, as the case may be, has me baffled, How might I be able to retain the thoughts that I've had and to put them to use? Many hours of the day are ,spent in this, frequently unproductive musing, Sous les ifs noirs qui les abritent Under the shade of the black yews, and how often do I get invaluable ideas that leave me as quickly as they come. My desire at this point is to retain these ideas, and trans- pose daydreams into constructive thoughts. Most of the time daydreams are wasted merely because they are not fol- lowed by action. The solution is then to organize these ideas, remember them and use them in order to accomplish what I need to do.

Tom Zierk Grade XI "IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH" The sun played gently on the new leaves of spring, defying the early dew, to take her reign over God's peaceful and orderly world. The forest hummed a symphony atuned to the day, as the warm rays fell between the trees in its green depth. Here the moss was soft and cool, the air pure and the earth unscathed by the plow. The chipmunk, the 'possum, and the deer lived in harmony and understanding for one another.,As the morning passed a blue-iay announced her new young, another cocoon opened to emit the pastel colors of the season, wild daisies burst their buds, and a doe arched her fine neck and braced her graceful form to drink deeply from a pool of liquid sky. As Apollo reached his throne the hum subsided, the forest rested. Laterfin the pink and gold of late afternoon, a buck surveyed his domain from a clearing, and an oriole chirped his words of satisfaction. When night fell the cricket and the frog kept watch with the mountain. "And God said, let us make man . . . and let him have dominion over . . . everything . . . upon the earth . . . " The voice of industry screamed wealth, greed and success, mobs moved in together to shriek in one voice for power. The earth was felled from heaven and God forgotten. No longer could the buck be monarch with the mountain. No longer did the sun bring the wealth of a day. Nature's assurance was gone. The struggle for survival began. A winter sun groped through the clouds to find the land. It peered down on the mourning earth, her face grey with the devastation of war. The squirrel looked warily from a hollow stump and, noting the weighty silence that succeeds complete desertion, he hopped out. Scurrying through barbed wire, fallen trees, and charrecl bodies he grovelled among ashes and torn earth for food. He went to the pool to drink deeply. It was mud. No bird sang. No animal lived. The forest had been taken, ruined, and left- The heart of the earth groaned with the echo of the machine age and the vices of men. Man had sacrificed God's world for money and power.

By design- ing ever more efficient production machinery, it has enabled the manufacturers of con- sumer items such as automobiles, radio and television sets, refrigerators, washing machines, etc., to produce better products for us at lower costs.
