Without it society is stupid and stale. Under its power alone life would remain a matter of trial and error. Youth, always moderng Experience, always trueg May you always stand together As in this book you do. THOMAS H. ELSON. 'lCome, choose your road and away" is the call Life will make to the seniors on com- mencement day, and because in them is embodied the courage, the eagerness, and the faith of youth, that call Will be answered fearlessly and the choice made thoughtfully. My hope is that this spirit of youth will remain with them as a challenge and support along a Way Which Will lead eventually to the fulfillment of their dreams. ELIZABETH F. PARKS.

COCHRAN From a win and loss standpoint the i936 football season was not so success- ful as in past seasons, but when we stop to consider that we had a green team, the boys did remarkably well. After a poor start against Leuzinger with Lady Luck failing to smile upon the Tartars, Torrance finally found her stride against San Pedro, El Segundo and Gardena. Once again Narbonne came up with one of her superior teams, and Torrance was forced to bow to the Gauchos for the first time in three years after leading Narbonne 6-U in the first quarter. To signal out any player as the reason for our success, would be impossible. I believe what success we did attain can be attributed to team work and the willingness of everyone to do his part. When next year's football roll is called, the smiling faces of Bob Trezise, Iames Amman, Frank Thompson, Merle Richardson, and Hank Hanson will be sadly missed. Although this will leave a gaping hole to be filled, l believe that if everyone resolves to do more than his part, the Tartars will give a good account of themselves next year. B. l.

CAPTAIN IIMMIE AMMAN QAll Marine Left Halfl Iimmy was the triple threat man on the Tartar eleven with his ability to swivel hip his way around many an enemyg he was also the spark plug for many long gains. He has the honor of having his name on the mythical All Marine League team. His loss to the 1937 team will be greatly felt. LEO ROSSETT CAll Marine Right Guardl "Watch charm" Rossett, a rugged type that would rather play football than eat, but hates Women, CO, Yeahll, is a vicious tackle and a hard blocker. These are what gave him the opportunity of having his name on the All Marine League team for the first time. Leo has one more year of football and un- doubtedly Will be the main cog on next year's line. BOB TREZISE CAll Marine Quarterl This was Bob's second year to have his name on the All Marine League team. He had a streak of bad luck in the early part of the season, for he broke his elbow in a practice game with Iordan and was greatly hampered all season. He returned to the team for the Narbonne game, and with him in the line-up, the Tartars had their old fighting spirit. Bob again showed his superb kicking and blocking this year. His loss to the team will be greatly noticed by the Coach. Bob also Won honorable mention for Southern California. RAY RICH A fCent D Ray W a indispens mant la ye r' ootball team in backing up the line a t pi y l y b f rted. He was picked as the most v th ar n . ay has two more years of football. G AL RUBBS fLeft Guardl Gerald was light but a consistent football player. He was a bit inex- perienced but showed the opposing teams how to play football. He also has two more years left and should go great guns. BENNY SMITH fLeft Guardl Benny, light but a great scrapper in every game, should prove to be a great player next year. He has one more year of football and should give Grubbs a real race for the position of left guard. l54'l A UW Tfimwj, ffff , f IL efwlhwD3 ar Bill is another ma rubbs and tle more rug He was understudy to o os , hiz"I' on e asH ' much action.

His love for the gamekm de him an outstanding player. He proved he can take it when he gets a chance. Leonard has one more year of football and should become a real factor on next year's team. ALBERT WINKLER CRight Tacklel Albert is another guy whose middle name is football. He was alternating tackle on last year's team, and did very well. Albert is a deadly tackler and blocker, and a menace to any man that crosses his path. He was also men- tioned as a possible All Marine League tackle and has one more year to make it. CARL GILBERT CRight Endl Carl, the hard luck player on the Tartar team, again was hit by old man hard luck in the early part of the season by pulling the ligaments in his left ankle, but was seen in action in the Los Angeles game. Carl is a fast end and a good pass receiver. He is always scenting out plays in the opponents back field. Carl will probably get quite a bit of action next season, which is his last year. IACK KENT CLelt Endl lack is one of the best ends that Coach Donahue has producedg he is a smart player and deadly tackler and blocker. He is also a fine pass receiver. lt was Iack that scored the lone touchdown in the Narbonne game on a pass from Amman. lack will undoubtedly be on the All Marine League line up next year for Torrance High School. FORREST "DOC" MCHENRY CRight Endl is another that played his last game for Torrance last season. Being hampered by injuries and illness, nevertheless, he was a clean player sportsman. The college who gets him will be greatly pleased. Hatter, I. Dowell, Sumatsu, Stewart, Bender, Iavens, Iackson, Hanni, SECOND Figuredo, Grubbs, Cook, Slover, A.

He was also hit by bad luck in the middle of the season, but quickly recovered only to be hurt again. This was the first time that Merle attempted to play the line, and he accomplished the task of learning the plays for both right and left end, and he did a job that will always be remembered. He is a graduating senior. MAX COAST CRight Endl Max played his first year at the position and though a little inexperienced did very well. He has one more year of football and we hope to see much ol him in next year's games. LOUIS MADORE COuarterJ This was Louis' first year on the varsity squad, and he did a great job in running the squad. He is small and light but quite fast, he is a hard tackler and blocker, and has tackled and blocked many opponents much larger than himself. Louis has one more year of football, and he should be a very good quarter by next year. IAMES HERLETT lQuarterl Iimmy offered Louis a great deal of competition this past year but has a bit to learn. He should see a lot of service in next year's games. IOHN SMART CCenterl Iohnny played a good game at center this year. He was handicapped by inexperience and was also up against very hard competition. He is a graduat- ing senior. HENRY PUPKOFF lRight Halfl "Hank," in his first year for football, played well in this position. He is a good blocker and a great left handed passer. Hank should do very well at right half. IOHNNY SCHMIDT lFull Backl Iohnny was one of the fastest men on last year's squad and was the im- portant factor in the back field. It was he who put Torrance in scoring position in every game. He should again be the mainstay of next year's back field. I. D. RADFORD lFull Back? Radford, the biggest man in the back field, is a hard line player, and if there isn't a hole for him, he will make one. Radford has another year of football and should make the All Marine League if he works hard. ROBERT SMITH lLeft Halfl Robert didn't see very much action, but when he did play he showed a lot of fight. Bob is a dandy passer and a brilliant ball carrier, also a good blocker and tackler. He should prove a great man for Coach Donahue's back field. l66l locking Formation ', Rossiet, G, Grubbs, IcGinnis, B, Smith Harris, Schmidt nkler, I...

Harold Clemmer David Powell RG Wilbur Franklin Tony Nady - I..G - - l'IeberKing Due to the fact that most of the members of the Varsity team graduated last year, this year's team was left without much experienced material. In spite of this difficulty, the Tartars Went ahead and showed that they had the right kind of grit and fight that it takes to produce a championship team. But larger and more experienced squads in the Marine League, proved that once more the Torrance Tartars were to play the role of underdogs. TORRANCE VS. LEUZINGER The first defeat of the season come when the blue and white team from Leuzinger trounced the Torrance boys to the tune of 30-17. The Tartars fought hard to place, but in vain. The Olympians proved to be "just too good." TORRANCE VS. SAN PEDRO Hopelessly outclassedy the Tartars were defeated by a much larger and experienced team. Under the crushing onslaught of the Pirates, the Tartars went down under the score of 44-IU. The boys fought right up to the last whistle in an effort to even the score, but to no avail. TORRANCE VS, NARBONNE Freezing weather, a dirt court, and a tough Gaucho team, were all factors against the fighting Tartars in the third game of the season. The peak of the Tartars' playing seemed to have been reached as they walked away from the Gauchos, with a score of 3246. TOI-TRANCE VS. GARDENA Fighting a losing battle, the Tartars went down under the charge of the Gardena team, Although the Torrance boys were beat by only four points, the score throughout the game was very close. The final score ended with the Mohican's ahead, with a score of 26422. TORRANVE VS. EL SEGUNDO In the most exciting game of the season the Tartars once more proved themselves to be nearly a championship team. With first one team, then the other, making baskets, the spectators were kept on edge throughout the game. When the last whistle blew, the score was tied, 31-31 Thus, a more exciting season than Torrance has seen for a long time, was closed. t68l CLASS B Even though the season was not so successful as might be hoped for, the outstanding display of sportsmanship is something that the team has to be proud of. In the first game of the season, Leuzinger nosed out the lightweights 18-10. In the San Pedro game, the Tartars were forced to bow to the Pirates, 37-22. The following week Torrance met Narbonne, to receive the largest defeat of the season in a score of 39-6. The most exciting games of the season were with Gardena and El Eegundo. Although Torrance did not beat either game, the excitement ran high throughout the length of the games. The scores in order were 29-18, 26-23.

Trezise knocked Sleeth in for the first run. ln the second inning Briganti scored the second and winning run. With the outstanding pitching of Elmer McGahan, and the support of the whole team, Torrance looked forward to a successful season. GARDENA KZOJ TORRANCE C45 Following their victory over Narbonne, Torrance was defeated by the pow- erful team of Gardena. Gardena's Victory was due to the brilliant pitching of Lyter. Briganti had two runs to his credit. Smith and Sleeth each got a run, making the final score twenty to four. l7Ul LEUZINGER CSD TORRANCE COD It seemed that during the Torrance-Leuzinger game, Torrance left its batting eye in the locker room, not scoring a run during the game. Schmidt and Smith were the only two Tartars to get hits. IORDAN C59 TORRANCE C41 On their own field, Torrance gave Iordan a run for their money. The score Was tied up to the sixth inning Then Torrance got a bad break and Iordan scored the final and winning run. EL SEGUNDO COD TORRANCE C31 Elmer McGahan, the Tartar's star pitcher, pitched the only no hit no run game of the season in the Los Angeles city district. The El Segundo batters were baffled by his twisting curves. Briganti and Schmidt made the runs for the Tartars. BANNING C55 TORRANCE C 45 Torrance played Banning on their own field. Up to the first of the seventh inning, the score was tied. Then Torrance got a bad break and Banning scored the winning run. Although they lost by one run, the Torrance team showed excellent cooperation and sportsmanship. RHS C121 TORRANCE C121 At Biis, Torrance met heavy opposition.

The graduation of our hurdlers last spring put this year's team on the "fritz". With this factor against them, the Tartars went into their meets with the idea of doing the best that they could, which is all anybody can do. In the opening track meet of the season with Leuzinger, Torrance was de- feated by a score of 66 to 54. ln spite of the fact that the Olympians defeated the Tartars, lack Kent broke the 220 record, running this event in 22.2. Lee Kirkpatrick broke the class B 660 record, running the distance in 1:31. Orchids to these two boys. The second meet proved that in Marvin Goettsch we have a stellar runner. In the San Pedro meet he ran his event, the 440, in 55.7, which is very excellent time. Another orchid to this up and coming runner. San Pedro swamped the Torrance boys by a score of 63 to 58. Once more the hurdles proved to be the Tartars' weak point. The Narbonne Gauchos took first place in the hurdle races in all classes. For the third time this year our Class B relay team was undefeated. Final score was Narbonne 60, Torrance 24. In the fourth meet of the season, the Tartars made a better showing. They were only defeated by fourteen points, which is the best showing they made in the season, up to that point. The final score was 59 to 45. One of the sur- prises of the meet was Hans Sommer's winning first place in the class B l,320, running the distance in 3.42. E: x Q ' F7 K tx . i. Q X .I .

The class B relay team composed of, Addison Smith, Arthur Basile, Lee Kirpatrick and Earl Locke achieved their aim in this meet. Their aim was to break the school relay record, they ran the event in 1 min. 13 sec. These boys should break their own record next season. It was certainly a fine ending forthe season. Winning the meet was the inspiration they neded to go out and show themselves off in the finals. MARINE LEAGUE FINALS Although the Torrance boys did not do as well as expected they brought home their share of the medals. ln every class some boy or boys won medals. Very few of the boys who entered the meet came home empty handed. Once more Lee Kirpatrick broke the school record in the Class B 660. He ran the distance in 1.30.

Torrance had a fairly successful season in tennis this year. The final stand- ings ranked them in third place behind San Pedro and Leuzinger. Next year promises to be a close fight with San Pedro and Torrance occupying first and second places, San Pedro and Leuzinger did a good job of walloping Torrance this year, but next year they had better step lively for elsel. Leuzinger is dropping out of the Marine League, and San Pedro is losing several letterrnen. Torrance is only losing two men with nine returning. The dual meet scores were as follows: Torrance 1 ----- - Leuzinger 6 Torrance llfg - - San Pedro 5112 Torrance 6 -------- Narbonne 1 Torrance ---------- Gardena El Segundo defaulted.

The girls were hostesses at one playday, and guests at the San Pedro, Gardena and Narbonne playdays. The Torrance girls were victorious at San Pedro in the first playday of the year. Hockey, tennis, volleyball and basketball were played, after which they enjoyed refreshments, a short program, and informal dancing. Our girls were hostesses at the second playday. Narbonne, San Pedro and Banning were the invited guests. Preliminary social games started the play- day off with excitement, the object being to become better acquainted. Tor- rance won in basketball and speedball, losing in tennis, volleyball and base- ball. After refreshments, a delightful program was presented in the gym, and the girls enjoyed informal dancing. The Gardena playday was novel in that no school was victorious, for girls from each school were placed on every team. After refreshments, the girls had the pleasure of seeing Gardenas Art Exhibit, and they were also enter- tained by their drill team.

TETSUO YASUNAGA MUHAL PAINTING During the year 1936-37, T. H. S. acquired the mural painting "Horne Life in Old Taos" by Miss A. Katherine Skeele, through the Federal Art Project, P. W. A., of the U. S. Government. The school was required to furnish the money for the materials used, which amounted to about Sl25, and about S50 of this was contributed by the Winter Class of '37, The mural pre- sents the present-day life of the Pueblo Indians of Taos, New Mexico, about seven hundred of whom still live in the two communal dwellings which were standing there when the first white men visited Taos, in an expedition conducted by Coronado. Miss Skeele was assisted by two other artists, Messrs. Hogg and Hopkins. The execution of the painting took over seven months work on the part of the artist and many weeks of work by the assistants. STAMP IIULLEETING By Bill Neudorfer Of all hobbies, stamp collecting is my favorite one. It is by tar the most exciting and educational of all hobbies. When collecting stamps, you usually find an odd story connected with them. Sometimes you may run upon an old stamp from a far-off country which is seldom heard of today, This pastime is very exciting and enjoyable, not only for young people, but for grown-ups too. ln your leisure time you may leaf through your album, stopping every once in a while to look at a queer stamp and wonder what story is behind this small piece of paper with a picture on the face of it. It may have been made many hundreds of years ago, and what adventures it may have had before it fell into your hands! Stamp collecting is one of the greatest hobbies in the world today. Thous- ands of people collect them and keep them for many happy hours to come. Sometimes you hear or read of some person, young or old, finding in the col- lection a valuable stamp, which is worth a large sum ot money. Many people today collect stamps for the fun or the educational value which they contain. In your collection include air mail, special delivery, and other stamps from all over the world. I8Ul PENNED TU PENELUPE By Coral Lindeman 129 East Road, Coral Cove, California. August 13, 1935. Dear Penelope, Two thoroughly bedraggled, worn out, and lonesome travelers arrived in Coral Cove this afternoon. Possibly, if you could have seen through half a dozen layers of soot and sand, you might have recognized Mother and me. Aunt Veronica met us at the station. Although I had never seen her before, I knew her immediately. She is tall, stately, and stern. Aunt Veronica alked up to me and said: "So this is our twenty-year-old Edith. Hmm, a b' o thin and no raving beauty." And then she said to Mother: "But s ooks like you, Margaret-yes, she looks like you." Aunt Veronica would do anything for mother and willingly gave us the run of her house. She lives on the edge of to an old-fashioned two-story house, surrounded by eucalyptus tr es. C Cove is a pretty little towng little for California, that is, for it is twic t e ze of Willowbrook. Last night, the conductor announced tha h we awoke this morning we would be in California. I woke up 've me etween two and three o'clock to get my first view of this land of ilk a honey. When six-thirty came, I jumped up in bed, jerked up the c ins, and looked. I don't know what I had expected to see-orange gr v , palm trees, and cool winding rivers, I suppose-but instead w san ills and valleys of sand that were set on fire by the rising sun. It e think of the Spaniards that had called this land Caliente Farnal , m ning hot furnace. They surely knew what they were talking about. y n o'c1ock I was unable to do anything but crouch down in a shady corner of the car, pour down one cup of ice Water after another, and work up a perfectly lovely hatred for this unearthly place. By the time we got into civilized country, I was practically cremated around the edges. I really am glad that we are here, though, because I believe that Mother will be happier. She was so restless and dissatisfied in Maine after Fathers death. I know that this has been a tiresome letter, but I promise to have more to tell you next time. I shall be pacing the floor until I hear how dear old Willow- brook is struggling along without me. Love, IUDITH. December 29, 1935. Dear Penny: Take off your cap and your mittens, unravel your scarf, and prepare to read it and weep. I can see you dashing into the house after a sleigh ride with the gang, grabbing a bite to eat, and then tearing down to the lake to skate until all hours of the night. Oh, Penny, no one will ever know how much I miss dear old Willowbrook! Excuse me if I seem dramatic, but this is the first Christmas that Mother and I have been away from home, so you see I can't help feeling a little blue. These California winters are the bunk, no ice and no snow, unless you go to the mountains Cwhich We can't, because Aunt Veronica's car is a total wreckj. There is rain, though, and enough of that to keep me from venturing out of doors, People are so strange that I find it hard to get acquainted. We have been here more than four months and only know a few of Aunt Veronica's friends. Such charming people, too, take, for instance, the college professor Whose greatest delight is to back me into a corner and spring upon me his latest theory for the destruction of the human race by bacteriag or dear Mrs. Vanbotts who comes over three times a week to see if I wouldn't just love to take care of little Ignatius and Hortense for the afternoon, and she just knows I would because she did so much to help poor Aunt Veronica when poor Aunt f81l Veronica had three fingers pinched in a revolving door. People like that should be put in cages. I am sorry to have to cut this letter off so short, Penny, but I have had an invitation to go for a sail boat ride out in the bay. In the winter time, at that. I wonder if I'll be seasick. Confectionately fjust slangl IUDITI-I. April 24, 1936. Dear Little Nell: Here is something that will give you a jolt. Last Saturday I went to a picnic at Lincoln Park in Long Beach. Oh, but this wasn't just a plain old picnic, it was for everyone from the State of Maine. I walked all over the park trying to find someone that I knew. I saw the Smiths from Hopedale, who, I must add, are well on the way to setting a record for infant raising-what with Barbara lean, Art, Augustine, Ioe, Chrissy, and the latest arrivals who came in a set of three, Donnie, Lonnie and Ronnie. I was about to despair of seeing anyone from Willowbrook, when, suddenly I noticed an Apollo-ish blonde gentleman headed straight for me and ap- proaching at a dangerous pace. I tried to step aside, but the gentleman grabbed me by the shoulders, shook me in no uncertain terms, and yelled: "Well, if it isn't Rough and Ready Rogers! Iudy, what's happened to you? Don't tell me that you are the girl that I used to tease about her pug nose and her freckles and her pigtails! Why it's positively one of those polywog into frog or moth into butterfly things." I was virtually floored. To think that that rattlebrained jerry Dennis could ever be "God's gift to women." Penny, you would never believe your eyes. Ierry is about six-foot-one, his hair is blonde and curly and he has the most beautiful tan. He has been in the Hawaiian Islands for the past five years, dividing his time between civil engineering and pearl diving. Isn't that too, too romantic? Now little Iudy will have to trot out the old personality and give her some rejuvenating. I imagine she is pretty rusty and out of practice by this time. But remember: Iudith Rogers always gets her man! Hopefully, IUDITH. P.S.-Maybe, just to play safe, you had better get out the old rabbit's foot and do some plain and fancy conjuring for your old pal, eh what? june l, 1936. Dear Penny: You couldn't guess where I was this morning. No, it wasn't in an asylum, but I confess that I wouldn't have been at all surprised to find myself in one before the day was over. Well, do you give up? I was in the justice of the Peace's office. I don't believe I told you of the gentleman that Mother met. It seems that he was quite lonesome living alone in his big house, and, seeing that Mother had no one to support her and nowhere to live except with Aunt Veronica, he asked her to become his wife. Mother is very fond of him, so she accepted. They were married this morning by the Iustice of the Peace. Wait! the best is yet to come. I was so happy because Mother was so happy, that I couldn't help sitting down on the front steps of the office and crying just a little bit. Suddenly, someone sat down beside me and put his arm around me. "Oh, Iudy," thought I, "won't you ever get a break?" For who should it be but jerry fand me in that tear-stained conditionl. Ierry just looked at me and then he said, sort of soft like: "How about it, Iudy?" Well, I tried to regain my lost composure but, would you believe it, Penny, before I could get my mouth closed, there I was with a ring on my finger! I couldn't say a word. I literally flung myself at ferry and wrapped my arms around his neck. When I finally came up for breath, jerry and I were surrounded by a wild mob of yelping relatives. A f82l Honestly, Penny, I turned the color of that old turkey gobbler that used to chase us all around Mr. Harding's farm. My mouth felt as though it were full of cotton, and I couldn't utter a sound, but Ierry turned and faced that howling throng the reminded me of Daniel in the lion's den or Tarzan and his mate, or somethingl and he said to Mother: "I guess you're not the only one who can get married." I was so happy that I had to dash home and put it down in black and white. Victoriously, IUDITH. P.S.-I never knew that a rabbit's foot could be so effective. Mrs. Iohn Shaw announces the marriage of her daughter Iudith to Mr. Ierald Dennis Iune 28, 1936 Dear Penny: Ierry and I are sailing for Panama tomorrow. We shall be in Maine about the first of August. I can't wait to see you and Willowbrook again. Love, I T 'S A E Il I M E fBy Wilbur Franklinj IUDITH. There are many different types of crimes and criminals, but I am such an innocent fellow, that I am not so well informed about crime. I will do my best to show to you some of the habits we have in this day and age that are rather civil in a way, at least, there is a certain way of taking it that seems civil, If you let your imagination wander, you can see how this might be classed as a crime. Something should be done about making trophies with figures on them such as we have in the main hall in our show case. These poor fellows have to stand in one position all the time. They never get to sit down nor do they ever get a chance to speak to anyone. Everyone who passes the show case sud- denly realizes the miserable life these poor mistreated, unhappy figures lead. In this show case we have two golf players standing ready to hit the golf ball, but they are being deceived. There are no golf balls to be had, and more than that they haven't even a caddy. These golf players have been standing in that same position since Thirty-fourp they should be able to have a game in a few more years. If these poor fellows can't enjoy life a little, let them lie down at least, then life would be more pleasant for everyone. There are also two track men, one tennis player, and one football player. From the look on these poor track men's faces, you would think they had just finished running the twenty-six mile marathon. It's worse than that, they have been running for about three years now. They can't finish the game for there are not any officials. They haven't even a tape to break. Someone should let the "G men" know. How would our show case look with a lot of exhausted people lying all over it? The tennis player seems to be a little over-anxious to hit the ball. He doesn't know his opponent went home years ago. The football player would look more like a real player by just sitting on the bench. He may need a rest now after running for three years. Anyway, someone should tell him the game is over, and that his attempts for a goal are useless. High school students must be under twenty-one years of age to com- pete in athletics in the Los Angeles City school system. Yet, this fellow must be over that agep he has been standing in this show case for so long a time. I can't understand how he can stand on one leg so long without a rest. I have drawn for you very badly the heartless way in which these poor over-worked athletes are treated. I can't stress too strongly the necessity of letting them sit down and rest. When you pass the show case, stop and talk to these lonesome figures, and remember it isn't their fault. I83l HE MAKES MUSIC WHAT IT ISN'T fBy Lois Allenl Now that my brother has a guitar, I don't believe that I'll ever have one minute of peace when he's around. He just picks and picks and picks. It might be different if he could only play some simple tune, but the way he picks is just too, too terrible. I think the music produced by a guitar is really pretty, but not the way he plays itl I did want to learn how to play the guitar myself, but I would feel sorry for him if he had to listen to what I have to put up with. I can't even hear my favorite radio program for that infernal picking. I thought things might be different after his first lesson, but that constant picking goes on just the same as before. I've already warned him that if he keeps it up much longer, he won't care to have me running loose, for he has me at my wit's end. With much pleasure I look forward to the day when he can play even Yankee Doodle. If this composition has sounded too stringy, drawn out, or whatever you might want to say, please excuse it, for he's picking right now. SHUHT UE CHANGE fBy Arlys Fossuml It was a very pleasant summer night when Bob, feeling very warm, was sitting on his front porch. He had visions of ice cream sundaes, malts, and everything else that wiould seem pleasing to him. While debating with himself, as to whether he should "splurge" or save it for little brother's birthday present, who should stroll by but his O. A. O., lane. Seeing each other, they commenced to talk, fmainly about the weather? and before he knew it he had asked her if she would like something cool to drink. She naturally, like most girls, answered, "Why I'd be delighted." On the way to the drug store, Bob, ffeeling in his pocket to see how much change he had, and because jingling it made him feel important alsol, felt very confident that he had enough for two malts. After their straws had prac- tically drenched their glasses, Bob drew out his money to pay the bill. The bill was twenty-one cents, and he had only eighteen. He was puzzled for a second and then decided that he, so enchanted by her charm, had mistaken what he thought was a dime, for a penny. Now what? Bob, blushing bash- fully, told Iane the circumstances and she, with a sympathetic smile, calmly took out a five cent piece from her pocket, and handed it to him. After Bob had left lane, he thought of his baby brother that would be one year old the following day. His pockets, much to his regret, did not jingle as he ran home, but he had had a wonderful time. Baby wouldn't miss his present, and Mother would understand. RAIN CBy Bernice Gilbertj Rain on my window Wet in the street Cold in my head I ache to my feet. Dance at the beach Friends will all go Laughter and fun Will miss this, I know. The doctor has been hereg I have the flu. My temper is black, And I feel so blue. ELUWEHS lBy Helen Bayj The fields alight With flowers gay Who put their nightcaps on And take them off at day! l84l at night A BIT UF HUME PRIDE By Peggy Mitchell The little shanty that the Bachelor had just moved into was almost ready to tumble into a mass of kindling. The neighbors closed their doors to a person that would stoop low enough to live in such a shack. The poor Bachelor was more broad-minded than his neighbors, so he kept to himself as much as pos- sible and never spoke. As the weeks passed by, you could notice an occasional peep between the cracks of the blinds of the neighbors. One could not blame them for giving a glance once in a while, because things were happening in the enclosure of rickety picket fence rented by the lone Bachelor. Little green sprouts of shrub- bery and flowers appeared through the face of the neatly cultivated half acre of ground. A double coat ol white paint had brightened the looks of the yard, with an addiitonal new board or two. The Bachelor had lived in the neighborhood for eleven months and two weeks. Winter had come and gone since he had spoken to a soul. In the following months of spring not only was he busy coaxing each individual plant along to a good start, but also the surrounding neighbors were imitat- ing each move the lone man made until they too had a garden as lovely as their teaching neighbor. The days were not silent now for the lonesome man. In fact, he had to put little string fences around his flower beds to keep them from being trampled on by children. Many years have passed, and now one thinks nothing of finding a photo- grapher or newsreporter in his garden, taking snapshots or jotting down notes of the plant life. As Bill Cso the people had christened the Bachelor! stood leaning on his spade resting one bright April morning, a reporter popped this question: "Say, fellow, whatever gave you courage enough to try to make anything of the old pen that used to be here?" Bill replied modestly: "My mother always used to say to my father, 'No matter what kind of a place you live in have a "bit of home pride!" FUUH BIG H'S By Thelma Hauck Rhythm, Romance, Rent and Rheumatism, are the four big R's on the report card of life. At sweet sixteen it's rhythm. You go to dances three times a week, why you would rather dance than eat or sleep. In your dreams you dance with the boy of your heart. He is tall, dark, and handsome, but, alas, when you awake, he is nowhere to be found, he has vanished! You look and look for him, while you dance in some other man's arms. At twenty-five it's romance, you're in love at last. At sweet sixteen it was puppy love, at eighteen it was simply a love to go places, but at twenty-five you know it's love. Love is simply grand, whether you stay home every night or go out, it's still love. Finally he proposes, and you accept, marry, and settle down to the serious business of making a home. At thirty-five it's rent. You have to worry and struggle along on the little wage your husband makes in order to pay the rent, not to mention the other expenses. You pay the rent on the first of every month, but the first seems like every other day. At fifty that old man rheumatism gets you, after all these years of slaving over a hot stove, doing your own washing, and raising a family. Sometimes after you have raised your family, maybe a son or daughter or both bring their children home for you to keep while they go out and have a good time. When it rains and pours outside, you have rheumatism and have to sit and suffer. l85l When these four R's are achieved your life's work is nearly over, cmd deep down inside of you there is a hope that you will receive a scholarship to Heaven. MUDEHN TEMPTATIUNS fBy Wilbur Franklinj lust because today's youth is called modern doesn't mean that tempta- tions are modern. The same temptations the young people of today are experiencing have been experienced by ach set of young people for countless generations. Boys seem to get into more trouble than girls. This is because the boy follows up his impulses. It is not because he hasn't any will-power. It is the desire to see things done right. Eve, a woman, started all this, and someone must finish it. Some people will say, "That's right. Blame it all on the women when you men had about as much to do with it as anyone. Why didn't Adam stop her?" Maybe Adam tried to keep her from eating the apple and failed. You know how hard it is to change a woman's mind. Anyway it has its good and bad points. If Eve had not sampled the apple, we might never have been able to enjoy apple pie. Apple jelly isn't so bad, and cider, I'm sure, would be rather scarce. The word cider leads to another temptation. Sometimes the desire to keep the apple juice for a while is stronger than the temptation to drink it while it is fresh. The most outstanding temptations of the modern boy are: under working, getting out of washing the dishes, and forgetting to put things back where he found them. The boy of today is so susceptible to temptations that he may spend all his time thinking up ways to keep from working. If there is some- thing he doesn't like to do, he wjill find some excuse to keep from doing it. Washing dishes is a very good example. If he doesn't feel like doing them, he has a cut finger or he's sick. He may refuse to eat so he will not have to help wash them. His excuse is that he didn't eat. Why should he have to help clean the dishes? The boy of today is often tempted to forget. He uses his father's tools and either forgets to put them away or puts them in the wrong place. If he is "called down" for leaving them out, he is usually tempted to say, "I was going to use them again after dinner, but I had to 'do the dishes,' or 'I would have put them away, but what's the use? I was planning to use them tomorrow, maybe. It just means more work, putting them away." The boy is often tempted to leave his discarded clothing lying around his home. If his mother asks him why he did not pick it up, he replies with one of his several alibis, "I didn't have time this morningp it was so late, when you called me." If he can not use that excuse, he mght say, "I was planning to pick them up, when I finished combing my hair." It's really astounding how the young people of today can get out of the most difficult situations. I have drawn for you, to the best of my ability, a picture of the evils of the modern youth. It was a very difficult task, for such an innocent boy as I, to bring to light the inside facts about the temptations experienced by the boy of this modern world. If I keep trying, someday I may be experienced too. UVEH THE FUAMY fBy Arthur Kellyl Mr. john Tweed blew into the bar, so to speak, on an air of supreme satis- faction. Let it be said beforehand that Mr. Tweed was known, and cared to be known, as a man of a somewhat precarious reputation. While each of his friends would laugh at the jokes plaed upon the other, none of them knew but what he might next feel the effect of Mr. Tweed's humor. Mr. Tweed was of generous proportions, and having the ability to control his humor within the bounds of deep bass chuckles, hardly audible, fexcept that which sounded like an occasional sightl, none but those honored by his acquaint- I86l ance might know what thoughts lay behind his ruddy, glowing face. It was his eyes that gave them their hint that something was going on besides the usual. So when Mr. Tweed sat himself down at the bar, with a fire burning from the depths of his eyes and a soft sigh that seemed to have his whole heart in it, the keeper waited. When this unusual customer had relieved his thirst, he suggested, "Well'?" "Ho, hol ha-tsighj it was just too clever! just too cleverl" and there was another sigh. "Yes-to go on-ho, ho, well, you know the sign that what's-his-name has in front of his what-is-it there on the corner?" Mr. Tweed chuckled, then quaffed some of the foamy. "Yes, of course-" the keeper thought he could perceive the joke. "You remember what it said, of course," he said, with a twinkle. "Yes-" 'Remember that it said-'All who leave this shap are under the influence of our good wares?' Do you remember? ho-ho!" "Yes-, but-" "Well-, What's-his-name-is missing-ha-is missing-ha, ha-his-ho, ha-his sign-and--and you-ha, ha, ha, ha-you have itl" And without further delay Mr. Tweed rolled off of his seat, plunked down the price of the bill of fare and passed like a happy breeze Knot withstanding his weightj like a happy breeze out of the shop. GHUST TRACKS CBy Rudella Baysj "Lion Brothers, lnc." read the sign over the store on Main Street in the little town of Haleyricle. "Lion Brothers" it read, but the fact is, there never was any other brother. Sammy Lion had painted it there just twenty years ago just as Sadie Lee had told him to. "Because it sounds more business-like," she had said. Poor Sammy, he wasn't a hen-pecked husband to be sure, because he wasn't married, but he certainly was hen-pecked. Sadie Lee had him right under her thumb. And Sammy Lion wasn't even half as bold as his name suggested. He was as bold as a lamb. Twenty-five years ago when Sammy was just a bashful beau, Sadie had promised to marry him just as soon as he obtained 35000, that was all. So as a result poor Sammy had tried again and again to raise the amount of money, but these twenty-five years as a single man show you how unsuccessful he was. To top all this, that no-good store on the other side of town had been taking all of Sammy's trade. But Sammy had hit upon an idea to get back his money and business, and maybe even make him 55000.00 This idea was so secret he hadn't even told Sadie Lee. Sammy waited until eleven o'clock when he was sure every- one was asleep Cbecause in this little town ten o'clock was considered latel. He went to the other side of town. Then carefully, quietly, and paintakingly he painted in white, foot-steps leading to that no-good store. Right up to the door he painted themg and then satisfied, he turned and started down Main Street stopping only long enough to grab a white sheet off a clothes line. Then he ran down Main Street making weird noises. People stuck their heads out of the windows to see the ghost. The next day the town Cwhich was very superstitiousl was all talking about the ghost. Then someone started the rumor that, that no-good store on the other side of town was haunted. Didn't everyone see the ghost tracks leading up to it? Well, just as our hero Sammy Lion expected, he did make 555000.00 all in three months' time, and more too. Now dear readers, I suppose you think that Sammy and Sadie Lee were married, but you're wrong, because now our dear Sadie Lee has raised the amount to Sl0,000.00, and Sammy will wait another 25 years until he thinks of another bright idea. l87l THE MAEHITHIEH fBy Tetsuo Yasunagal The members of our club were given free passes to the show, featuring a magic act, performed by Tango. After the two shows were over, Tango went into action with his trick. He said, "I will say some magic words and cover this lady with a sheet, and when I take it off she will be half of her original size." My friends and I watched with amazement at the scene. Sure enough the lady had become half of her real size. I guessed that the lady was a midget who was on stilts before the act was performed or maybe she had been let down off the stage by a trap door, and another lady had taken her place. Whatever I guessed didn't seem to be right, and I was more puzzled than ever. The next day our club met in the old camp and discussed the matter. Our club consisted of Sam, Bud, Mac and me. I gave my opinions about how the act was performed, and some didn't think much of them. Bud, who was very ignorant, said, "I think she just shrank because it was so hot inside of the sheet." Then Sam hollered, "You sap, how could she shrink that quick!" When we departed, we were all more puzzled than ever. I intended to get this out of my mind, so I wrote a letter to Mr. Tango and asked him how he performed the wonderful act. I told him about some of our guesses and asked if any were right. Bud still stuck to his guess, and he was so sure of himself, he bet five dollars on his statement. When I received Mr. Tango's letter the next day and told the gang, the letter was almost ruined, because everyone wanted to read at the same time. Soon Sam was reading it, and we learned that Mr. Tango had a wire coming through the floor attached to a mechanical lady and controlled by electricity. When a button was pressed, the mechanical object, which was so well fixed that it looked real, just became smaller. After hearing it, Bud passed out.

The greatest thing you can learn in school, is the ability to THINK for yourselves. That is the primary reason for our little psychology contest which we ran in this space last year. We hope to make this an annual event, provided your reaction is favorable. Frankly, you dicln't do so HOT last year. Maybe the problem was too steep, or the prizes not interesting enough. This yearls BRAIN TEASER is a simple problem in mathematics. And we are offering TWO BRAND NEW ONE DOLLAR BILLS for the first correct solution received after the annual is released. Also a ONE DOL- LAR BILL for the next NINE correct solutions received. And a half pound box of chocolates for the next TEN I correct solutions received. Here's the Problem: A man had one thousand one-dollar bills, and he wanted to divide them among ten bags., so that he could pay out any amount of dollars from 3751.00 to 31,000.00 by simply handing out one or more bags, without opening any of the bags. How did he divide the money? . There are over ten different correct solutions to this problem, so up and at lem! Let's see those dollar bills fly. And hereis hoping the boys don't let the girls get all the prizes! HEAIIIJ nn I3 nn.,iI 13. THE REXAL STORE LESLIE PRINCE, Pres. IIULLEY DRUG IIU., IN II.

' I-I-ZLER. "I think they are more intelligent and ar attackin their pr lems with m more courage than ever before." MR. MOWRY' Ill I1-I "Modern youth of today who like modern youth of long ago is-if we can believe history-impatient, exercising misdirected physical and mental energy, and later becoming the critics of modern youth. So what!" MR BARROW "The great majority of our young Americans who put their own physical comfort into a greater place of importance than the effort to 'achieve the honorable' are scheduled to miss the greatest joys life has to offer. To the few whose goal is self-discipline and idealism, our generation bows in respect, sincere affection and admiration. They will carry on the torch of inspiration and reap the joys of accomplishment." MARIORIE EISCHEN. Youth is to be envied: everything is at his disposal if he can realize it. One of the greatest fieldls open to the youth of today is that of creative writing. The newspaper, the periodical, the radio, the screen are all eager for his contributions if he will put forth his most thoughtful and painstaking efforts. ETHEL R. BURNHAM. The spirit of youth - eager in learning, enthusiastic in performance, happy in accomplishment. May it accompany us all far into our later yearsl ADA M. P. CHASE. Youth is faced with great opportunities. The questions before each of the T. H. S. students are: What are my ideals? What type of personality am I developing? I-low far do I expect to go? The answer to each question rests with eQCl'1 of YOU. IRINE MILLS. Modern Youth is bewildered with the freedom and opportunity, the mar- vels of science and invention that have come in this generation. If they keep their poise and prepare themselves by the proper use of all the forms of educa- tion that are theirs for the taking, they will be wise. E. IONES.
