Thousands of years ago the Prophet in Ecclesiastes said, UTO every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die, . . . a time to kill, and a time to heal, . . . a time to get, and a time to lose, . . . a time to keep silence, and a time to speakg a time to love, and a time to hate, a time of war, and a time of peace." In this troubled world it behooves each of us to use our own ca- pacities to the full for our personal futures and for the welfare of society. It is a time for action, not inertia, for confronting issues squarely, not escap- ingg for resetting sight lines, not using rose-colored glasses. Let us each determine what our dearest possessions are, what sacrifices they are worth, what ultimate outcomes we are willing to fight for, physically and morally. Recently in the United Nations, Warren Austin said, "Radar is not more sensitive to atmospheric vibrations than the personalities . . . here . . . are to the political atmosphere of our times." We must all cultivate that aware- ness and perception to make the .right decisions and to avoid tragic mistakes. As you become increasingly mature, may such wisdom be yours. ' 1 is e I Principal DEDI ATIO W e, the class of 1951, dedicate this book to Mr. Schwing for the great job he has done in guiding us through our high school career. W e are especially indebted to Mr. Schwing for what he has done for us in order that we might have our senior activities, despite the non-extra curricular activities pro- gram. Through his tireless eforts we have kept one thing which we cherish and look forward to most-our Senior Prom. ff" fz.,..fw+-fl-4 - -MY GLCM by First Row: Mr. Attinson, Mr. Blanken, Mr. Brennan, Mr. Brophy Second Row: Mr. Collins, Mr. Corson, Mrs. Davison, Mrs. Drill Third Row: Mr. Fitzmaurice, Miss Gessner, Miss Gross, Mr. Halloran Fourth Row: Miss Lisanti, Mr. Mattei, Miss Meyer, Miss Miner Fifth Row: Mrs. Reilly, Miss Reuter, Mr. Sauss, Mr. Schaufield Sixth Row: Mr. Soifer, Mr. Stolzenthaler, Mrs. Tietbohl N. uf' AMT' My daddy sw We fi XX, F irst Row: Miss Brougham, Mr. Caballero, Mrs. Cahill, Mr. Carroll Second Row: Mr. Driscoll, Miss Egan, Mr. Estlow, Mr. Fisler Third Row: Mr. Haney, Miss Jorgensen, Miss Koegl, Miss Koetat F ourlh Row: Miss Molloy, Miss Muntz, Miss Porter, Mrs. Prehn F ifth Row: Mr. Schwing, Miss Sheehy, Miss Sklair, Dr. Smith Sixth Row: Mr. Waldman, Mr. Wooley, Mr. Busing enior oem Many years ago with quaking fear I entered T.I-I.S. The future lay before me, and the seniors too, I guess. Initiation swallowed me, and I had lots of fun. Although my knees were well worn out before the dayld begun. And then I was a sophomore-that year went very fast. Who worries 'bout the future when they've yet to find the past? The freshies were amusing to my wisdom-clouded eye- We were never quite so silly in those freshman days gone hy. As a junior I discovered that soon I'd graduate, But those plans for the future still had a year to wait. I'd be a doctor, or a journalist, or if worse come to worse I could always be a genius, and explorer or a nurse. Oh, the future from a Senior's view was wonderful and sweet, I saw the monarchs of the future drop their sceptres at my feet. Plainly marked was my pathway from the spot on which I stood. If I couldn't rise on Broadway, I'd star in Hollywood. Oh, pity then that senior full of visions long ago I-Ier star was struck to earth by a devastating hlow, I married a boy whose dreams were just like mine, Now he works in S.S. White's to support our children nine. .I om AUSTIN SENIORS JANUARY, 1951 CLASS OFFICERS Pres. David Walz Seciy Katherine Jacobsen Treas.

FAREWELL EDITION NO REFUNDS ON TH E FALSE Pneolcnons Volume XXXZ , No. 324I FLAGPOLE SITTER FOR YANKEES Dick Vroome started his ninth week as a Hag pole sitter to ex- press his feelings against the current losing streak of the New York Yankees. His only contact with the events going on is with his go-between Red Palmer. Red brings him his food, mail and baseball results every day. Dick says he is completely content on his perch although it is a little wet when it rains. He resolves to remain on the pole until the Yan- kees are in first place again. They are now in third place but they're slowly climbing to first place. NOVELIST DOES IT AGAIN Another novel has been written by Miss Nancy lhnken, entitled FOREVER ROSEMARY. The hook has been dedicated to Miss Rosemary Lombardo who has typed the complete manuscript in three hours, fourteen days. TRIP TO UNKNOWN PLANET SCHEDULED Miss Ann Hemming and Miss Eleanor Wegener are soliciting persons interested in explor- ing the unknown. They plan to discover an unknown planet be- tween earth and Venus. Its where- abouts they cannot yet determine, due to the inefficiency of their materials valued at over two bil- lion dollars. Two of their co-workers, Misses Ellen Muoio and Dorothy Tanner, have been making startling dis- coveries about the Milky-Way. One evening when they were star- gazing they discovered that the milk had gone sour. Miss Marion Minarik has discovered that the stars are not all white but change color as you look at them. She has noticed after ten years now that many are blue, green and even red in color. FIRST WOMAN HOT-ROD RACER Miss Virginia Tromba, a for- mer T.H.S. student, rode "Car 41" to victory in the July 4th classic. She had to out-race fifty other male contenders to capture the trophy and the 510,000 purse. Ginny narrowly missed crashing into the wall at least ten times but fortunately missed each time. When asked for a comment after the race was over, Ginny said that now she is free to start on her life-long ambition. This is to circumscribe the globe in her racing car. She will start on it to- morrow and we wish her good luck. CIRCUS CASUALTY Another terrible accident oc- curred last week in the circus. One of the great jugglers, Lois "Fifi" Alexander, from that great juggling team, Fifi and Mimi, was seriously injured. It seems that Daniel Green, the handy boy, mixed a hard ball in with the soft balls. This ball in some strange manner hit Fifi on the head. She is still unconscious and is fortu- nate enough to have the famed Nurse Jean O'Brien hold ice cubes on the bump. In answer to our inquiry about her present condition, Nurse O'Brien said, "She's out cold." Joan Femenella, whose professional name is Mi- mi, has no comment to make at this time. MISSING PERSONS The renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Marion Keber, has now been missing for ten days down in the hills of Kentucky. Two days ago Gloria Teixuro and Betty Pol- hemus, famed aviatrixes, left New York in search of Dr. Keber. Miss Teixuro landed safely in a Kentucky air field but as yet Miss Polhemus has not been heard from. It is believed that she crashed into the top of Old Smokey. All these reports are un- comfirmed. SEARCH FOR LOST EXPLORER Michael Danielson, the second Frank Buck, has been lost for over three months in the dense jungles of South Africa. A searching party composed of sev- eral of Mr. D.'s friends was or- ganized by Robert Biller. The party has started to look for Mike in the Sahara Desert. Mr. B. said, "Well, you know Mike! He's liable to turn up any place." - ENGAGEMENT ' ANNOUNCED Miss Phyllis Davidson has an- nounced her betrothal and forth- coming marriage to Howard Herbert.

VIDEO STAR NEW STYLES AUTO ACCIDENT BACK Clifford "Uncle Clif'fy" Daniel- sen has returned to his three-hour TV show on Tuesday nights. He brought back the ancient jokes he has been using for the last five years along with some new ones that he recently stole from other comedians. As guest stars he had the famous gorilla acrobatic team of Spotty, Mickey, and Duchess. They performed their stellar act of swinging from rafter to rafter on the ceiling while hellowing at tlte top of their lungs. The only casualty of this act was the cam- eraman who got seasick while following the swinging from raft- er to rafter to rafter. Another guest star was the fa- mous operatic star Joan Jenkins. She sang her renowned version of "Frankie and Johnny." Of course Uncle Cliffy had to get into the act hy donning an Apache dress and strutting across the stage. He closed the show with his cus- tomary saying to all his little nieces and nephews. ill. FIRST WOMAN PITCHER Gloria "Slugger" O'Keefe be- came the first woman ever to play in the majors today when she pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

She is a qualified Health Ed. teacher and has taught for a num- ber of years at her former high school. When asked why she left the teaching profession, Miss O'Keefe replied that as it was too dangerous she decided to play baseball for the Dodgers. This team has always been her favorite and she has always rooted for it even when the going was rough fwhich was pretty oftenl. The final score of today's game is as follows: Giants 20, Dod- gers l. ill... SINGER MAKES GOOD Miss Jane Jenkins, alias Lenah Hone, has made her debut on the television show, Ray Prol Talent Show.

While there King Daniel Green endowed Sir Kirby with the Poet Laureate. This great honor was bestowed upon him for his great contribu- tion to the Literary world, "Love Lyrics." This Book includes all his works, even those started in his English classes while at Tot- tenville High School. DRAFT STARTED AGAIN "Since it seems likely that there will be another shortage of man- power, women are to be drafted into the armed forces," was the statement released by General Dorothy Bundesen today. General Shirley Ellis, who is in charge of the Home Defense, added that the women draftees will naturally see action in the front lines. She be- lieves that after the enemy real- izes that there are women on the front lines they will take to cover and give up. McLEOD FOUND Tom Morrissey, a reporter for the Staten Island Advance, has returned from Pago Pago with the startling news that he has found Miles McLeod. All of you know that Miles is the well-known adventurer and discoverer. Last year Miles set out to learn the customs and habits of the people of Pago Pago and no news was heard of him since January. Tom undertook the job of tracking him down because of the story in- volved. Last May he found Miles in the heart of Pago Pago playing Canasta with his six wives.

At this moment the little woman in the white suit, Miss Evelyn Green, arrived to carry her away. T.H.S. STUDENT LEVELS OCEANS It was released yesterday in the Scientific Journal of the World that after 20 years of con- centrated effort, the two oceans were made level, making it possi- ble for canals to be made easily. As soon as Mr. Carlton graduated from Tottenville High School he began his work. He worked con- stantly trying to find a way to make them level by a scientific and easy mechanical manner. He finally had to bring the extra water by bucketfuls from the higher ocean to the other one. Mr. Carlton probably will receive the Nobel Prize award for his great contribution to the progress of the world. Thus, renowned American en- gineer Robert Carlton, finally completed his life-long ambition. THE ALUMNI WINNER OF AWARD The Misses Eleanor Pellikan and Shirley Brower, co-authors of the best seller, "How to Lose Friends and Hate People," were feted at the social held at the home of Miss Joan Kubera.

I have just returned from my boy- friend's funeral. I'm heart-broken. He died all of a sudden the other night from the cake you told me to bake. Now I think I have a new beau-the undertaker who buried poor Joe. What I wanted to know is-should I give him a cake, too-also-where can I buy Aunt Peggy's Candy? I couldn't get it anywhere. Please help mend my broken heart and hook that undertaker. Please-I'm desperate! Sincerely, M. E. Bochino Dear M. E.: You were extremely wise not to use your first name as you might be recognized, I recall your past letter and remember sending my advice. You recall I said, "Feed your man lots of cake. If it doesn't work, arsenic you take." Then I told you, if arsenic doesn't work, Aunt Peggy's Candy will! Through some error, my letter was printed as follows: "Feeding your man lots of ar- senic, baked in a cake, it's a very cute trick." We all make mistakes -never despair, my dear.

The new law states that all subway, bus and trolley car windows must have curtains. Anyone found handling the curtains will be placed under arrest, then declared next week to be National Curb Polishing week. She insists that all curbs and sewers must be cleaned and polished with glass wax. They will all be inspected by the V.I.P. Bill Bogarts. The V.I.P. backed up the president's actions by stating, "lt's about time someone did something about cleaning up the sewers in this country." ANOTHER ROL- LER RINK FOR STATEN ISLAND ANNOUNCED! Plans for the building of a new Roller Skating Arena have been announced by the famous cor- poration of Wood, Sauss, and Benedict. The plans for decorat- ing the building's interior are still being worked on by the great Sorby. The plans were held up for some time when an attorney found that the above company intended to build their arena on the site where the Staten Island Rolladium is now located. How- ever, the situation is well in hand, and the building is to be erected on the outskirts of the city of Tottenville.

The Board of Elders is trying to decide whether Harry Biel is in- nocent or guilty for the serious heart attack of Marilyn Heerlein. This was brought about by the fact that Mr. Biel was wearing blue and white striped slacks in- stead of his usual levis. Miss Heerlein, an assistant in the teaching of the new "Cootie Ex- terminating Dept. at T.H.S., is recovering in Richmond Memorial Slaughter House. MEN DO YOU WANT MUSCLES?

VILL1-1 For the first time in two years Tottenville had the pleasure of having Shirley Temple Kilkes on stage. For the past week the young starlet had been appearing nightly behind the footlights of the stage in the Stadium Play- house. Miss Kilkes in her short movie career of six months has won two Oscarettes, one for the leading performance in Joe Blow from the Windy City. SINGER TO MAKE DEBUT IN HOME TOWN The famous alto singer, Miss Ethel Brown, is going to make a personal appearance in Legion Hall. She will sing some selec- tions from the hit opera, "Life of a Swordfish," by Barbara Corson. The alto part will be rendered by Miss Brown, but there will' be no soprano part due to the fact that Miss Corson has not yet com- pleted writing it. CAFE W'ILL OPEN IN TOTTENVILLE Opening up a new cafe in town are the Misses Mason and Mor- oni. Miss Mason announced today that the name would be the "The Soupbone Cafe" and that well- known chef, Douglas Clark, would cook there. Miss Moroni stated at a press interview that the Honorable Steve Kertecz, Governor of Tot- tenville, would cut the ribbon on August 15, 1981. OPERA OPENING The grand opening of "Ollie's Opera House" took place last night. Ollie's new star, Miss Helen "Tonsil" De Fusco was O.K. lO.K.-off keyl. Still in all they loved her and she'll be back next year in WEEK! A MOUSE." TODAY'S SPORTS STAR Baseball was pushed to greater heights today when Johnny Ku- rowski, star second sacker for the New York Yankees, smashed six home runs in yesterday's after- noon game against the Cleveland Injuns. Although he made five errors in fielding, his homers will put him in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The pitcher Kurowski got his homers from was the Injuns best hurler, Johnny "Scotchman" Mc- Cracken, who was very put out by the sixth homer. Johnny "Scotchman," one of the most outspoken men in baseball, told the reporters that he wasn't wor- ried about five, they were all in a day's work, but the sixth really affected his pitching pride. GOSSIP CORNER It's been said by various people that Louella Parsons could out- talk anyone! Last night Louella lost her title. It seems that she and .luke Box Ellen Tull had a three-round gab session. At the end of two rounds, Louella passed out leaving Ellen still talking. She continued to talk until her assistant and second, Richard Riley, carried her out. She now holds the title of World Cham- pion Talker. Q Q fx, 3 VA is R N , S .f ..

It was a cold and bitter night, the snow was falling heavily as a little boy trudged wearily down the street. All around him people were bustling about, finishing their last minute shopping or shouting a greeting to a friend. Over the rush of the crowd could be heard the chimes softly playing: "Silent Night, Holy Nightf' letting you know it was Christmas. Yes, Christmas was here at last, and a little boy stopped by a store and looked in through the window at the beautiful, bright new toys. He was imagining himself in a big room, with a Christmas tree, and under the Christmas tree were packages, dozens of packages, all gayly wrapped in shining red ribbon, and on the tag was marked-"To Joey on Christmas." Yes, it was fun to dream, dream about a Merry Christmas. His thoughts were suddenly shattered as a gay group came laughing by and shoved little Joey aside. Joey picked himself up. '6Oh how I hate Christmas," he cried with tears running down his face. His mother and father had both been killed in a plane crash three years before and it left little Joey an orphan at the age of six. He thought about the or- phanage from which he had escaped. He didn't like the orphanage, he always though it was a place for children whose parents didn't want them. Ever since he first came to the orphanage, he had hated it. He had never felt at home there and had never made many friends. While he was standing there he felt someone tap him on his shoulder and say, '4Merry Christmas, son." Turning, he saw a man who appeared to be middle-aged. He had on a shabby blue coat, his shoes were badly sodden from the weather, on his head .was a battered hat which looked like it had been worn out several times. Clinging to this arm was a little girl about J oey's age who was dressed as shabbily as the man. As Joey was about to shout at the man and tell him he hated Christmas, he noticed something about the little girl, who now was tugging at the man's arm saying, "Who is it Grandpa, who is it?" "lt is a little boy,', the man replied, "Pvc just wished him a Merry Christmas." It was then that Joey realized that the little girl was blind. Ashamed, Joey blurted out a weak Merry Christmas, and as they passed him Joey heard the little girl exclaim with delight about the music and the gay noise all around her. Joey imagined himself in her shoes and shuddered. It seemed in that minute Joey grew up. He had been feeling sorry for himself, never thinking about other people. Now he knew that he was just being selfish. He realized that Christmas was the time of forgetting your sorrows, and to stop running away. Running away wasn't going to solve anything. Christmas was the time to give, not look to receive, and also for making others happy. "Well," thought Joey, "this is a Merry Christmas after all," and with those thoughts in his mind and a smile on his lips, Joey turned swiftly and marched happily back to the orphanage. jlte Unifecl Wafionzi These days we are all told to respect and appreciate the United Nations. A little task like this is nothing at all for me. I have the United Nations in my blood. Or, at least, I have the blood of the United Nations in me. I've got English in me. The English are said to be slow to get a joke. This is utterly absurd. One day in a History class a boy spoke as follows: HMost of the houses in France are made of Plaster of Paris." The whole class, of course, except me, roared with laughter. I can't see anything funny in the situation. The boy's ignorance is deplorable-not amusing. I've heard peo- ple tell me I don't smile. I donit smile because I don't laugh. I didnit laugh because I'm still waiting to hear a joke that's funny. I have Scotch in me. The Scotch are supposed to be penny-pinchers. This is ridiculous. I've never heard anything so outrageous in my life. Per- haps I do use a crook-resistant, burglar-proof padlock on my wallet-and perhaps I do bake biscuits to use as Christmas presents for the hockey team every year-simply proof of the sensible saving and flair for economy which is a virtue of the Scottish people. I've got Spanish in me. The Spaniards are said to be adept dancers. This is something with which I heartly agree. Just look at all the boys l've danced with-there isn't more than one with a cast still on his foot. There's only one thing that worries me-I wonder Why my dance partners so often wear combat boots and shin guards? The German in me is something of which I am exceptionally proud. And the claim that the Germans are stubborn is about the silliest one yet. Iim a typical German. I've never been known to reverse a decision in my life. I still think that my definition of glycerine as a vicious liquid which is miser- able in water in all proportions is better than any old stuffy Chemistry book. We simply have confidence in our infallibility and absolute conviction that we are right but this is no indication that we Germans are stubborn. 0i'm after havin' Oirish in me too. And judgin' by the likes of me- we Oirish haven't got the temper we're supposed to have. And the next time one of you lf,'q'.',.l' Q23 claims we've a temper, Oi'l1 gie ye the back oime hand so fast ye won't know what happened. One of these days, I plan on setting up my private United Nations. When I disagree with myself-I've always got the veto. When the Scotch in me refuses to appropriate money, the German gets stubborn about a concession to be made, the Irish loses its temper, and the Spanish is over in a far corner doing the fandango-I can always rely on the English to ask-"Blast it all, old chaps, I really don't see just what the trouble is. Would you bully fellows sit down and explain the bloody thing to me?,' CARoL Rats ufiic elaarfmenf, ,Maier The house lights dim, the conductor's baton is poised, and a hush falls upon the audience as the first strains of Shubertis "Unfinished Symphonyn are heard. The world famous New York Philharmonic Orchestra, you say? No, it isn,t the Philharmonic, nor for that matter, the N.B.C. Symphony Orchestra nor the Goldman Band. As you have guessed by now, we are talk- ing about what we believe to be one of the finest musical organizations of its kind, The Tottenville High School Band under the baton of its accomplished maestro, Mrs. Lala Wilson. Our band was organized in 1937 and gave its first performance at the Christmas assembly of that year. It began playing at graduations, and begin- ning at the commencement of Wo1'ld Wai' Two, it set out on an intensive war- time program. It played at most of the war monument dedication ceremonies on the South Shore. Since most members of the bands which customarily marched in the national parades were gone, the Tottenville High School Band volunteered its services. In the interest of public moral it cooperated with the American Legion and participated in several of their performances. It continued with its annual and semi-annual evening concerts alongwith the graduation ceremonies and assemblies. Later on it commenced to play at the May Day fete at Clove Lake. ln 1948, it played a major part in the successes of the Colden Jubilee. Later, in 1950, the band played and made possible another tremendous success, '4The Womanless Wedding.', As these last four years have passed we have seen our fellow band mem- ber gradually leave and new members gradually take their places and we reminisce over these wonderful fruitful years we have spent in our '4Band of Bandsu which has been made possible only through the untiring efforts of our own Mrs. Lala Wilsoil. Her devotion to her band and her ukidsi' has made all of our successes as triumphant as they are. Everything worth having has a beginning and our Euterpean Society had its beginning way back in 1937, with Mrs. Wilsoii as its progenitor. When Mrs. Wilson first arrived on the scene, Tottenville High boasted of a rather large and loud glee club. Large-because it consisted of a hun- dred or more members and with this many members I imagine that it was loud! However, some of this group along with Mrs. Wilson agreed, that with a smaller group they would be able to concentrate and present a finer type of music. With this idea in mind, a new club, consisting of about 20 members, was formed. A club founded for good music and founded upon hard work. Believe me, hard work it wasg especially for its director., Mrs. Wilson. With the formation of this new club, a new and fitting name had to be found. After much thought, quite a bit of discussion, and innumerable sug- gestions, it was finally agreed that the name 'cliluterpean Societyv was both fitting and proper. Why tl1at name? What does it mean? ln Greek Myth- ology we learned that the "Goddess of Arts and Science" was named '4Muse." The word music is derived from this Greek word muse. Euterpi was one of the arts and sciences, specifically 'GCoddess of Songf, So much for the word Euterpean, now let's turn to the dictionary and look up the word society. "Society: a body of persons united for the promotion of some object. Now that we know how Euterps got started and how it received its name, 77 let us take a look at some of their productions. The premier performance was a musical reception held in the music room before a select group of friends and relatives. It was indeed a very swanky affair. All the decorations were in gold and white, the Society's colors. The flowers were gold and white with a gold and white cake served for refreshment. From this rather small but inspirational beginning we have gone on to bigger and better things. With the aid of our leader, the inde- fatigable Mrs. Wilson, we have presented "Mikado," HH. M. S. Pinaforef' 'Trial by Juryf' "Pirates of Penzancef' '4Princess Ida," "Colden Jubilee Celebration" and most recently wllhe Womanless Wedding." The Euterps also perform at every commencement exercise, at which time we lose a certain percentage of our members. Older members go out of school into their chosen field or profession never forgetting the memorable days spent in the Euterps Society. New members come in to replace the old as the Society progresses onward . . . onward to a world brought closer to good music through the untiring efforts of our beloved director and the cooperation of the Society members. RONALD LARSEN, RUTH HEINS wo Wie 5 an a Zigi .SM Today my mother told me to clean out the pockets of my red corduroy jacket. 'Tll send it to the cleaner's before school begins," she said, to the waiting laundry man. ' Usually I find exciting things in my pockets-old letters, school passes, a bunch of tired peanuts, and occasionally a forgotten handkerchief. But this time I found two nickels and a movie ticket stub. I began to think, when did I leave these? So I imagined what might have happened with them. Of course, the ticket was to our nondescript place of entertainment a atia in a sma town wa ca e t e ta ium. e two nic e s were pl'l' ll y lldh4'Sd "Th kl definitely the change. A double feature costs forty cents, most always. But the ticket lady always gives dimes in change. I began to weave a dramatic story behind the two nickels and the ticket stub. Mary Lou was a senior in high school, Pleasant Dale High. She had a quiet nature and even though she was a very pretty girl, she didn't go out very much except with a crowd of girls who were her "gals" All of them had running crushes on the new senior boy, or Mr. Anderson, their history teacher, the same people on whom girls usually have crushes. fThis isn't a very unusual story.j But Mary Lou was a little different from her friends. She had absolutely, definitely, positively, surely fallen in love with the Greatest Senior in P.D.I-I.S.! He was, namely, Gene Norman, who was deeply tanned all year 'round and could dance, so Mary Lou had been told, like a dream. Oh, how she longed for him to speak to her or nod to her. Either would have made her slightly ecstatic in reels of unconfined joy. She could see herself dancing with Gene Norman, laughing with him, talking with him. In most stories, the heroine has her fling with the hero, so I cannot resist letting Mary Lou have hers. Besides, the story would be Hat without it. Well, Mary Lou got her chance. On Monday morning, Tony Eberhart called Mary Lou as she was coming into school. 'cl want you to meet my friend," he said. At least, that's what she thought he said, for there standing with one big paw reaching out to shake her hand was none other than our friend, Gene Norman. It was as simple as that! Later that morning, Mary I,ou's third class teacher sent her home on a sick pass saying that the girl had looked Vacant and distant all through the class and perhaps she was ill? Needless to say, Mary Lou walked 011 clouds that whole wonderful day. And when the telephone rang at five-thirty and Gene Norman's magnificent voice came over the wire, Mary Lou nearly fainted from excitement and joy, all those emotions that make a girl radiant. He asked her how she was and did she get home all right fhow did he know I was sent home, M. L. thoughtj and was it possible for her to go to the movies with him that coming Friday night? Was it possible! I! Why, it was not only possible but also probable, definite, absolutely possible, definitely possible, etc., etc. Make my voice sound casual, M. L. thought, trying desperately to regain her poise. "I think I can make it,,' she answered. "I'll let you know tomorrow morning first thing, 0.K.?" Magnificent Gene answered, "Sure" Then Mary Lou got rid of him quick before she could give away her feelings. This was no date to turn down, so Friday night found Mary Lou walking quietly beside Gene towards the "Stadium.,' Imagine a tall, well-built guy, as handsome as they come, looking down at a small, sweet blonde girl and there you have the picture. But now the story changes, for as they enter the inner gates of the great theatre fit looked great to Ml.. thenj, Gene asked, would you like some candy to which Mary Lou said yes. From there on the evening is tiring, the movie boring for some reason that no one can explain. Even though they seem to be a perfect couple who have enjoyed five days of togetherness, suddenly they want no more of each other than just a friendly acquaintance. Mary Lou longs for the "gals" and Gene longs for his gang of fellows. All that Mary Lou has as a memento of the evening is her ticket stub and the two nickels that Gene gave her to choose whatever candy she pre- ferred. Somehow, she didn't buy the candy. Weeks later, she finds these mementos in a corner of her dresser drawer. In youth, sadness is always short, for there are too many happy days for every one, so shall we say that Mary Lou felt sad for only a minute or two, then threw the ticket stub away and gave the two nickels to her younger sister who wanted a comic book .... This could have happened. I don't remember how they got in my pocket but the more I think about it, the more I wish that the story could have a happy ending. PEGGE NIELSON JANUARY, 1951 G. 0.
