To Youth-Aglorying in the present,
challenging the future, tolling toward
the goal, and loving it all!
To Youth--the plane in which all
who feeljoy and hope and courage may
fly through ltfe's skies.

She Was a friend to youth-always just and
helpful and understanding. And youth will
remember her. Hers was not a Way of loud
command, but rather something far deeper
and more compelling-something that will
linger on, never feeling the touch of death.

There is a breathless hush of early morning. A ball of fire appears
in a cloudless winter sky. Far in the distance dark mountains form a
dark and jagged silhouette. There is a sudden roar of a motor. The
wind blows hard and wildly. Cutting into it soars a slim yellow plane.
Higher and higher it glides-fast as eye can glance. Always climbing,
facing the gale, it flies straight toward the highest mountain peak-
into the steel blue sky with the blazing sun-and endless space.
This is modern youth. A youth whose dreams are lofty and whose
courage and control make them come true. A youth that hates hypocrisy
and affected sentiment-and dares to be sincere, to face the truth. A
youth whose minds and bodies are accustomed to quick thinking and
fast moving-as found essential in this mechanical age. And yet, a
youth that is alive to real beauty and true feeling and all the fine zest
Life is self-expression, and each generation must express itself in
its own way. Therefore, is it not splendid and altogether proper that
the youth of today should point toward the sky? Our great grand-
fathers chose a horse and buggy-their sons a horseless carriage--our
fathers an automobile-'and ourselves the airplane. This it is that
symbolizes modern youth.

VVe, the seniors, are now soon ready to fly. The twelve grades through
which we have labored are ground school. We only await a diploma
which gives us the right to our first solo flight. Our dreams and hopes
and ambitions seem as a sun in the sky of life. Before we can reach it
there are dark and jagged mountains. But we are young-and youth
can what it dares!

THE NEW HOME OF THE UNIVERSITY
SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
The cut on the opposite page, taken from a drawing prepared by Holabird
and Root, Architects, shows the facade of the new building to be erected by the
University School for Girls at the southeast corner of Sheridan Road and Oakdale
Street. Brick and stone are to be used for the exterior of the building, of fire-
proof construction throughout.
The first two floors will be devoted to class rooms, study halls, science labora-
tory, library, reception, and dining rooms. The third floor provides study halls
and recitation rooms for the junior high school, the art studio and the music
rooms, and the entire fourth floor will be reserved for living quarters of the board-
ing pupils and resident teachers.
The plan provides for a gymnasium which will be a separate building, located
on the east end of the lot and entered by agatewhich willlead toit through an attrac-
tive foyer. There will be a staff office, dressing rooms, showers, and a special room
for remedial work, and at one end of the gymnasium will be a stage adequate
for school plays.
In the southwest' corner of the lot there is to be an enclosed playground for the
younger children, equipped with swings, sandboxes, and coasting chutes. The
nearby facilities of Lincoln Park provide further opportunity for recreation and
for athletic games.
The erection of the building about an open court will insure for the school
a permanent open space which can give sunshine and airiness to the house. The
class rooms will be chiefly on Oakdale Street, the more quiet exposure of the build-
ing, and casement windows in the rear of these rooms will open into the large
quiet lawn of the court.
For the convenience of pupils special school busses will operate, one north
along Lake Shore Drive and another north on State Street from Division, and
for private cars convenient approach may be made to the school by way of several
northside boulevards, including the Outer and Inner Drives and the parkways.

U. S. G. BUILDS NEW ADDITION
THIRTY STORY STRUCTURE
FOR ROGERS PARK
The latest addition to the University School
for Girls will be located at Howard Ave. and
the Lake, thus making an unbroken file of
buildings extending from Oakdale Ave. to
Evanston. In Miss Haire's statement to the
press she disclosed the plan of the School Board
to buy up the city of Evanston for the construc-
tion of a new hockey field and golf course.
The Northwestern University buildings will he
torn down, and a new stadium built to replace
Dyche, will seat 150,000 for the athletic contests.
The new thirty story structure will have
every convenience. It will have 400 Studio
Duplex apartments-one for each girl. New
equipment has been installed in all the buildings.
Cars may now be taken into the ground fioor
rear of the building and parked there-thus
eliminating the traflic question and the un-
necessary walk from car to classes. There are
also chaufIeur's rooms and social halls on the
ground Hoor. Airplanes will be kept in the
newly constructed hangars on the Hackett
Flying Field. Limestone for the new building
is being furnished by Betty Dickinson, '30, of
the Dickinson Limestone Co. The new addition
will be ready for occupancy in two months.
Miss Dorothy Braun was found strangled to
death by a wire coat hanger in her apartment
at the Lake Shore Drive Hotel late last night.
Police headquarters were baffled until clever
detectives, after a long search through the entire
apartment, found a note pinned to the lamp
shade. It read: "To all whom it may concern:
This is the only way out. I can go on no
longer. I had to choose between acting, writing,
or making angel food cakes as a career.
Friends and relatives were notified immed-
iately and an inquest will be held Thursday.
CONGRESS TO ADOPT
By a two-thirds majority of Congress, the
Farleigh plan was passed today. In Miss
Farleigh's two hour address to that body, she
said: "Last year the currency was reduced
fthe tenth time in three yearsb to one square
inch. I see no reason for not dispensing with
it entirely and conducting business purely on
credit-it is a trustful nation, anyway."
LEAGUE MEETS HERE
Miss Nora Roberts, head of the W. A. A. L.,
declared that athletic contests for women are
vulgar. She strongly discouraged the practice
among the young, and is planning a nation
wide campaign for its prevention.
JOSEPHINE KILLIAN HAILED
AS SECOND MME. CURIE
Miss Josephine Killian, on being awarded
the Noble Prize for Research in Chemistry
following her discovery of the illusive hydoxena-

Betty Lange, her colleague, who has done some
remarkable work with automobile engines.

OF NEW OPERA
Last night marked the opening of the new
Civic Opera House and one of the most brilliant
events of the season. "Aida" was presented,
with Valerie Haight in the leading role. As a

The talking version of "The Waiting Mother"
is done by competent and clever actresses.
jerre' Steward in the mother role is excellent.
She has long been considered the perfect mother

with much gusto. Don't miss it!

I have been asked to contribute something to the knowledge of what a Junior
is. A definition that I once heard from one of the specie was "One year moren.
Now that must give an impression of boredom or extreme anticipation of leaving
high school. But I translate their language differently. I take that phrase to
mean "Pm waiting for college, I'rn growing up!"
The Junior, by way of explanation, is a creature that inhabits the back region
of a' school room. It is not rare-quite numerous, to say the least. It has very
queer habits, after a year of Juniorism it automatically turns into another specie,
the Senior. They are, of course, the same people,-but more so.
They are just a step below the climax of things. To those who are younger,
they cry "Be one of us soon!" and to those who are older "We'll soon be there!"
So, as I have said, the Junior lives only for the termination of that year. He
climbs endlessly up from his Freshman year to the highest grade. Let him, then,
when he has made that top branch, not fall back-to Where he was.

Everything was stirring! Everyone was shouting to everyone else. General
Haire had just issued the order that all forces were to assemble under their respec-
tive leaders. Skirmishing began immediately, and soon the fray was in full fling.
Lieutenant Davy's division was the first to advance, and it swept forward
in spite of the enemy's frightful barrage of triangles and quadratic equations.
Colonel Linnell, because she had learned her Caesar, led her men triumphantly
except for one or two indirect discourse bombs which exploded, injuring a few.
The forces of Lieutenant Dewey suffered minor casualties, due mainly to several
hand grenades of dates and four hundred pages of poison gas which the enemy
sent over with effect. Lieutenant Fleming banished the fear of an effective verb
bullet attack by arming her men with rules. These did not help, however, against
the subjunctive tank which crushed the morals of many. Lieutenant Cavins'
forces left the field with honor, intact except for one mishap. When the order
"To Memorizen was given, her troops became temporarily panic stricken, but
they were soon rallied.
Headquarters recognized what all work and no play do to Jack, so a temporary
truce was called and sports supplemented for swords. As an outlet for excess
ammunition hockey met the emergencies of the fall months, with the Juniors
rising as peppy allies. Our basketball record was above reproach-next to the
top. At the moment, we are on our toes for track events of all descriptions, eagerly
waiting for the starter's pistol to allow us to show our speed.
Honors awarded for the school were given by General Consent to the Sopho-

Once upon a time there lived in the University School for Girls four charming
sisters: Nineteen Thirty, Nineteen Thirty-one, Nineteen Thirty-two, and Nine-
teen Thirty-three. The youngest, Nineteen Thirty-three, gave promise of a most
interesting career. A very precocious child, she early took up the burden of
supporting the honor of the Family. She promptly entered into the Student
Government Plan organized by her older sisters, materially aiding them as best
she could. Nineteen Thirty-three was brave in her newly acquired dignity, and
high were her ambitions.
Although studies claimed most of her time, being a lusty child, she longed to
distinguish herself in Athletics. She was versatile: not contenting herself with
one form of sport, she tried her hand at Hockey, Basketball, Tennis, Archery,
Baseball, and Track, in all of which she acquitted herself honorably and well.
Especially in hockey was she a brilliant success-defeating all but her eldest
sister, O bitter truth!-then she was defeated, but not without showing in what
spirit she was.
In spite of her interest in Athletics, Nineteen Thirty-three did not disregard
the claims society made upon her. She strove diligently to make her "coming
out" party a success-leading her sisters on a thrilling Arctic expedition.
It is a critical period, first year in High School. Nineteen Thirty-three looks
forward to the time when she will be the "eldest sister," leaving behind her stand-
ards of which all future "little sisters" may be proud.

'kEleCted fOr both semesters.
During the last school year Student Government has endeavored to make
several changes in the scope of its jurisdiction and its regulations. '
The spirit behind the council had a new note. We tried to work with the
students and promote cooperation rather than the desire to hurdle laws. In this
we feel we have succeeded to a certain extent by removing the temptations which
could sensibly be removed.
The senior members were supported by committees and felt justified in dis-
tributing control to them individually. Although the latter was not a new step,
it was never adopted so extensively before.
The Council welcomes this opportunity to thank the school for its eager and
constant help and--might we add-for tolerance? I

It seems only right that we should devote a page to the Castanet. The Casta-
non is, not Without reason, a proud mother who revels in the least chance to show
OH a truly extraordinary child, and the Castanet is indeed an infant prodigy.
First, the Castanet has grown far faster than any of us anticipated. We had
expected it to be merely a miniature of its famous parent, exactly like it but on a
much smaller scale-with its main purpose in life the magnifying of the Castanon.
But the Castanet has surprised us all and taken a place of its own in the world.
It has manifested a style, purpose, and personality distinct and interesting in
itself--and has made its future growth and presence among us essential.
The Castanet is no longer a "feeder" for or a sample of the Castanon. It is
not a magazine nor a humor sheet nor a piece of literature-it is our school paper.
School spirit is a phrase much overworked, but in its true meaning it is something
fine. It means the will to fight and to be a good sport in all our games, it means
loyalty for our school, it brings zest to hard work and makes school-day friend-
ships lasting. Such a spirit should be nourished-and therefore the Castanetl
Let it contain anything about school and us, outside things of common interest,
and our best efforts in any line. Let it represent the entire school and print what
should appeal to all. Let us be proud and print only the best-let us be fair and
print about ourselves jokes as well as praise well-earned. Let us be interested
in everything that happens or exists and anxious to make our school "the best
in all the landn. Then the Castanet will keep a style, purpose, and personality
distinct and interesting in itself. Then it will be a good school paper.
The Castanet must stand for improvement and initiative and each year should
contribute something, We have given it birth and brought it up from four sheets
of unreadable home-made print to an eight page paper with real printing and
clear illustrations. We have made it representative of first, the high school,-
then, junior high,-and now the entire school. The Castanon point system was
first put into effect in the Castanet, and has encouraged class spirit and com-
petition. It is our policy to honor Where honor is due, and a girl from each class
will receive recognition, while a cup will be presented to the class who contributed
the best and the most. Also it is we who introduced the school songs. Our re-
quest inspired them. Without the Castanet they would never have been printed,
recognized, and accepted. To inspire, print, recognize, and accept-that is the
result when school spirit and improvements and a school paper combine.
Again we say that we have given you the Castanet and started it on its way.
We have done our best and ask that you will do yours. We have done much
but there is more to do. Next year, may you say the same thing. And that is
sufficient. The Castanet has been our charge-and we are now entrusting it to

there has been lively competition among the house girls, deciding who should

cooks and hikers.
Early one bright Saturday morning while October was still young, approxi-
mately twenty girls and a number of teachers set out in a bus for the cottage at
Miller. There was a victrola going continually-and everyone was in a happy
mood, therefore the ride was pleasant. The dinner was cooked in the open. We
had a regular little Coney Island falmostj with music, eats, swimming, games,
sand, and sun. It was a day never to be forgotten.
Many other pleasant weekends followed in the fall. Then came winter with
the novelty of"winter sports and now we are looking forward to spring with its
beauty and freshness. If only we might stay two weeks instead of two days!

THE SENIOR PARTY
The Senior Class entertained with a Wild West Party for the benefit of the
A two act play entitled "Wild Nell" was the most important feature of the
program. The first scene of this stirring drama opened with Lady VeredeVere
Uane McMurrayD picking beautiful Woodland flowers which she placed noisily in
a basket. Two Indian warriors capture this demure lady and then flee down the
river in their canoe. Lady VeredeVere's rival, Wild Nell CBabs Grafj with Hand-
some Harry CPennyj pursue the fair captive, for Handsome Harry loves the lady.
just as Lady VeredeVere is about to be consumed by flames, Handsome Harry
arrives and saves her from this awful death. The Indian braves escape into the
wilderness. Lady VeredeVere faints gracefully into Handsome Harry's arms.
The grand finale takes place when Wild Nell in a jealous rage stabs Lady Verede-
Vere. Reflecting upon her cruel fate she turns and stabs Handsome Harry-then
plunges the bloody weapon into her own breast.
Priscilla as Pocahontas gave her version of a modern Indian dancer.
Refreshments were served and the guests danced until five o'clock.
THE JUNIOR SCOTCH -PARTY
No one can say that the Juniors didn't stick to the spirit of their Scotch party.
Such saving of expenses was never before known. Not a penny was spent on
decorations, except generously to buy Red Cross Seals many months ago to use
now to hold up Hallowe'en, Christmas, and Valentine decorations saved from
other parties. The one great expenditure was food-and that was donated! It
was delicious. At least the juniors thought so, judging from the amount that was
eaten while serving.
The morning Assembly was satirized by the whole class, with Betty Brawley
as the harassed teacher. Magdalen Beck took "Penny's" place in reading reports
that, may we here announce, were meant only in fun.
Then that talented little Scotch lassie, Ida Rockwood, did a very creditable
Highland Fling to the tune of the "Irish Washer Woman". She must be the
only person in captivity who knows all the steps. The glee club came next, starring
Marie Kruse, Ida Rockwood, Jo Leavenworth, and Marjory Kittle. They sang
" Lady Luck" and "Old Billy Goat". Try as Marie would she couldn't succeed
in "coughing up the red shirts" in time "to flag the train".
Next, for our diversion, Lochinvar was performed for us. It was bravely read
by Magdelan Beck, and acted with the help of Mary Young, Doris Leach, Marjory
Kittle, Dorothy Paschen, Charlotte Hubbart, and-a broomstick horse!
THE SOPHOMORE CIRCUS
Circus day! Crowds swarmed to the "big tent" to see the wild animals, side
shows, and freaks. Many new and strange monsters were introduced to us-
the alligatortis fBetty CoitJ,the camelephant fVirginia Thatcherj, the hypotatoe
QLorol Wilsonl, and the Crabit Uune Nelsonl. The ring master CBarbara Bastienj
put these animals through amazing stunts.
Marie Berger and Louise Carroll interpreted the chorus which was sung by
the class. It gave us a stirring picture of the way in which a South Sea Islander
chooses his wife. Harriet Schwartz was the very charming "tall lady".
After the performance everyone ate the regular circus food-pop, pink lemon-
ade, "hot dogs", peanuts, popcorn, and ice cream.
The Sophomore Circus was di-ferent and we enjoyed it!
On Wednesday, March fifth, the Freshmen were hostesses in the gymnasium at
three o'clock. Certainly they deserve all of the nice things that were said about
their party. The "gym" was decorated with white crepe paper. Even the mid-
night sun was portrayed on the stage curtain. White food was served from white
tables by hostesses dressed in white.
The chorus was led by Patricia Born, who also gave a clog dance. Next Carolyn
Crossett, Kate and Frances Canfield played several pieces on the mandolin. Jean
Wilhelm completed the program with a piano solo.
Afterward chances were sold on a doll dressed as an Icelander. The lucky
person was Ann Loeber. We all regretted that there was only one raflle. Of
course there was dancing.
Many people agreed that the Freshmen had the most artistic party of the
season. This is but their first year, and we may look forward to three more such

JAZZ AND MINUET
The outstanding purpose of the little playlet entitled "Jazz and Minuet"
seems to be to prove that human nature is the same now as it was one hundred
and fifty years ago in spite of the frivolity and irresponsibility of the youth of
Eleanor Prudence Van Hayden is a very modern, headstrong, self-willed
debutante of 1920. Dick Townsend, to whom she is almost engaged, is unable
to take her to an old fashioned masquerade ball. Very angry, and much against
her mother's Wishes, she calls the best looking man in town but one of question-
able reputation, and asks him to be her escort. While waiting for him to arrive,
Eleanor falls asleep, and in her dreams becomes her great-great aunt, Prudence
Van Hayden, whose diary she has just been reading. As a result of the dream
Eleanor, the irresponsible spoiled darling, emerges a charming young woman who
realizes she is really in love with Dick and she has not treated him fairly. He
arrives unexpectedly to escort her to the dance and she consents to become his
Most of the honors go to Dorothy, who played the modern girl so well and
spoke her flippant lines with zest and spirit. Yet turned into her great-great
aunt she seemed transformed to a bygone age, showing her unquestioned ability
as an actress. The part of mother became jerre very well, because she played
it so calmly and naturally. "Penny,' made a very likable young man, both of
today and of olden times. Sallie was perfect for the suave colonial villain. And
We must not forget Mildred. We liked her Irish brogue.
The play was a great success, say we all.

THE KNAVE GF HEARTS
The " Knave of Hearts" was a fantasy and as such treated with great artistry.
To carry out the imaginative effect, scenery and costumes were highly stylized-
as also was the acting. '
An attractive manager, dressed in scarlet, stepped before the curtain and
introduced his puppet show. Then the curtain rose upon the royal household
of Pompdebile the Eighth. The manager clapped his hands-and two Pastry
Cooks came to life. It was their duty to rouse our interest in the important event
about to take place. Next, we were greeted by the King himself, who appeared
with the Chancellor, the Knave, and two Heralds. Pompdebile told us that the
Lady Violetta had to prepare with her own delicate white hands some tarts which
were to be placed in the royal museum with those of the previous Queens of Hearts.
She could not be Queen until hers were judged and passed upon by the Pastry
Cooks. The Lady Violetta was then summoned. After an airy entrance she
gaily began the ceremony. It seemed she knew very little of the culinary art,
or so judged the indignant cooks who watched the proceedings. Pompdebile,
the Chancellor, Ursula, and the Pastry Cooks withdrew until the tarts should be
fully baked. In this interval Violetta appealed to the Knave, who promised to
replace these with some his wife had made. Thus was solved the mystery of the
stolen tarts-hidden until now within a rhyme.
Great credit is due the whole cast for the talent which they displayed. Lady
Violetta was a beautiful heroine-always in her part. Especially charming were
her scenes with the Knave, a delightful rogue. Pompey proved himself a clever
actor and was responsible for much of our laughter. The Chancellor was distinct-
ive, Ursula lovely, and even the Heralds helped make the play an unusual success.
But we mustn't forget the ingredients. They were too petite and sedate. Then
for the Pastry Cooks--ll!!

A nmimmmul'f'T. A of a French Chateau. Seven
years ago, during the celebration
M27 of my sister's wedding, I was
. but Isolde, the bride's sister,
but one of the victors in the
tourneys was a comely young
nobleman of France who liked
head-strong English maidens, so
now I am Isolde, Comtesse
s D'Abricour. Father was indeed
Wroth because Pierre and I ran
off together, but I had ever a mind of my own and I always did as I wished, even
as when I learned to read and write. My sisters called me monkish for that but
I cared not a whit, and now my knowledge standeth me in good stead.
My dear lord hath gone with Comte Raymond de Toulouse and a goodly
company of lords and knights to rescue the Holy Sepulcher from the paynim in
the Far East, leaving in my charge our small Pierre, a lad of six years, and our
great Chateau D'Abricour. This daily writing will, I pray, help to lighten the
burden of the long months.
Three moons have waned and yet it seemeth but yesterday that my dear one
departed. I can see it now in my mind . . The great hall with all the vassals
and warriors in their shining armour, holding the gay banners, my lord's face so
grave as I buckled on his sword and fastened his white surcoat with the great
cross of red and gold which I had sewn myself .... it is a picture graven
in my brain. Then as I watched from my window .... the great inner
courtyard filled with horses and men, the glint of steel in the sun, glimpses of the
red on white, the shouting, stamping, then a silver trumpet call, the cavalcade
passing over the drawbridge, my Pierre at the head with my white scarf about
his helm .... the high note of those silver trumpets dying in the distance
. . . , This is all three months agone and yet I see it still so clearly.
This hath been a day of great rejoicing. A packet hath come from that strange
place of the East, Constantinople. The best of all in it was a letter from Pierre.
He is well and sayeth that when winter is spent the great company will press on
towards the city of Antioch which must be taken 'ere the way be clear to high
Jerusalem. He prayeth me to commend him to all his servants, to have a care
for myself and our son, to be brave and to pray for the great Cause. The packet
contained also a little poniard of Eastern handiwork for my small Pierre, for
myself a quantity of curiously embroidered stuffs for gowns, and a sum of gold
to be divided amongst the retainers.
May our Good Lady protect him and return him safe to me!

A ril -
PHa5ve been this day a-hawking, escorted by our faithful Jean de Becque who
is the captain of the men-at-arms who were left to guard the castle. On the North
Road we came upon a group of villeins who seemed in a sad plight. They howled
and said that some horsemen had descended upon them last night and had burned
their homes. I ordered them to hasten and pass the word that all should come
to the chateau as swiftly as possible and bring their goods, their families and
pMy fears are realized. Le Comte de Clisson, who is master of the next manor
to the north, intends to overrun our lands and spoil the castle. He is a wicked,
godless creature who would not join the Cause because he hoped to gain more
by preying on the defenseless ones who are left at home! He shall never set foot
in this chateau while I draw the breath of life!
After two days of hardest anxiety the blow has fallen. Clisson and his men
surround this castle and the barbican is lost. My soldiers are so few I could not
hold it. But I will never lose courage. My people are all safe within the walls,
we have a goodly amount of supplies, and a messenger is despatched to Carcas-
Late at night. Fie upon these cravens! This day the outer court was lost
because they would not stand at the postern. jean de Becque is wounded. I
must arm the villeins and if I can but stir them up with taunts, a sally can be
made and the court regained! May St. George be my aid!
Late at night. The spirit of my savage ancestors hath driven me on. After
two days of raving, swearing, and cruelty as I never dreamed I could summon
up, I drove the men to fight desperately. The sally was successful and we have
the outer court once more. My small Pierre is a true son of his father and I have
to lock him up to keep him from the ramparts.
Late afternoon. We cling to our position as hounds do set their teeth in a
bone. Hark! . . . We are saved indeed! The brazen bugles of Carcassonne
are sounding in the distance and a messenger from the ramparts sayeth that
Clisson is breaking camp with all haste!
Our siege is ended. Jean de Becque will recover-five men at arms, two archers
and seven villeins are slain. Some ten of all are wounded but none will die. The
captain of the force from Carcassonne spake to me today with an odd smile and
said, "Madame la Comtesse, may I tender you my sincerest praises on your
excellent management of this defense. You have shown the highest courage.
I know this will quite change the opinions of those who did not like an English
chatelaine for a French chateau." He gave me also a message from Le Comte
Tobert de Carcassonne, saying that he would be honored to receive my son into
his household at the proper time.
Another letter from my dear husband. The company is encamped before
Antioch and it seemeth a weary siege. Alas, this letter hath not the cheerful
sound of his last, the hardships increase.
I had a strange dream last night. It seemed that a pilgrim, clothed all in
black, stood in the courtyard and cried, "Antioch will fall to the Christians but
alas for those who will be widows and those who will be made fatherless!" Then
he gave me my Pierre's sword and my white scarf all drabbled with blood. This
troubled me for a time, but my letter aideth me to forget such foolery.
This is the seventh birthday of my small Pierre. Tomorrow he goeth to Car-
eassonne to begin his kuightly training. He feels a man already and keepeth a
bold front. though I think he is a bit frighted at leaving me. It is hard to let him
go. It will be lonely without him. I have had no more letters from my lord and
I have dreamt of the black pilgrim.
Have inspected the manor during these past few days. The ravages of Clisson
are quite repaired ..., A page has just eome to say that Jkntioch fell to
the arms of Christendom in klune. Praise to the most high! .... I must
keep on for the sake of my small Pierre. I must,even though I have seen that the
pilgrim who stands without is clothed all in black . .

The other day when he called up from Montreal to ask me about tonight, I had
just come in from a ride. I had been up pretty high, and you know how cold
and windy it is up there. Well, I was a perfect wreck, you can imagine. My face
was as red as a beet and my hair was streaming all over the place. I didn't have
time to fix it, or powder my nose, or anything. You should have seen his face
when I answered the phone, because, you know, I've always had the luck to be
dressed up when he's seen me. I honestly bet he didn't think it was me-I-
pardon me. What was I talking about anyway?"
"You were telling all you had to do," answered one of her companions.
"Oh dear, yes. I'm wearing my new orchid sunrise dress tonight, and I have
to go to the hairdresser's this afternoon to have my hair tinted to match it for

The handsome little yellow plane slows down and swoops lower over house-

reader and a couple of important-looking notebooks. .
The other two girls are dropped off in a similar manner. Our very pretty
girl then speeds home, lands on the roof of the apartment building where she lives,
puts her plane away, and takes the elevator down to her apartment.

And dare to alone.

You soar into air.
Through storms you must go-
All Life is not fair.
But where storm clouds lurk,

Beyond the horizon
Your dreams will come true.
So give me my plane-
I long to fly high!
Sends me off to the sky.

Darkest clouds can break through.
Beyond the horizon

Donornv BRAUN, '30
He never did anything famous unless you consider roping and throwing a
calf in twelve seconds a famous accomplishment. He never was well known
except in Johnson County, Wyoming and yet, to me he was wonderfull When I
knew him I knew nothing of his life and even now that I have heard it, I doubt
that it is any different from that of all western boys. For he was just a cowboy
named "Tud" Smith.
He was born in Story, Wyoming in IQO2. He was the sixth of fourteen children.
Little has been known about his childhood. I suppose it was school and helping
father as all ranch children did. It might have seemed a drab existence to us
who live in the city of bright lights.
His father owned a small cattle ranch and early one spring Tud was to
"break" his first pony. The pony was a small pinto which he had named Mud.
He donned his chaps that morning as he had seen others do and started to saddle
Mud. It was difiicult work and took some good patience,but it is a virtue that
all Westerners learn early if they are to have comradeship with animals. Bit by
bit Tud gained on the pony and with a quick swing up went the saddle. It
was only a matter of a few seconds when Tud pulled up his chaps, stroked Mud's
nose, grabbed the reins and was mounted. Well-that little pony bucked, reared,
sun-fished to the best of his ability and Tud stuck with him. His father who had
watched the exhibition smiled to himself. All his other sons had broken horses
but none had done it as well as Tud. He would make a rodeo winner out of him.
Tud went to Wyoming University at Laramie for one year. During his sopho-
more year he received news that his father was dying. The snow was heavy
and the trains slow, by the time he reached home his father was dead. The oldest
son Ken had taken over the ranch and was running it with his own. Tud felt
that he couldn't afford to return to college so he began to work for Ken. They
didn't agree on some planting that had to be done so Tud packed up and " pulled
out". He went to Sheridan, Wyoming and there found work in a garage.
The next spring Frank O. Horton, owner of a dude ranch, asked Tud if he
would like to be a horse wrangler on the H-Bar Ranch. "Skipper," as F. O. H.
was called, said the work would not altogether be with the dudes but real range
riding would be part of it. Tud agreed to come May first as the out-of-door-life
instead of the oily garage sounded good to him.
At the appointed time Tud arrived at the ranch and there began a month of
round-ups, carpentering, painting, branding, all of which had to be accomplished
before the dudes arrived. Tud enjoyed those weeks of real work. He enjoyed
the companionship of those men and their stories of the dumb dudes. He waited
almost impatiently for the first dudes.
They came. The dudes with Eastern clothes, accents and pale faces. Hany,
the head wrangler, gave them horses and saddles and they set out on their first
ride in the "Wild and woolly west." Miss Baher, a spinster, came in every morn-
ing for five days complaining about her horse. Hany smiled and each morning
gave her a horse of a different name. The sixth day she came in beaming and
overjoyed. She had finally found a horse that suited her. She thanked Hany
and crossed his palm with silver. " Ignorance is bliss"-for it was later rumored
about the corral that it was the same horse, Dinty Moore, all the while. "The
wool is pulled over a poor dude's eyesi' many times.
The next winter Tud was sent to Chicago with a load of cattle for the stock
yards. Arriving at the Union Station he glanced around and decided to walk
to his hotel. Tud had read much of Chicago gangsters but he doubted their
reality. Walking along in his usual free and easy fashion he crossed an alley.
Three masked men held him up and two hundred dollars were removed from him
before he could utter a sound. After selling the cattle he quickly returned to the
West where men are men!
He hadn't tried any bucking for some years but at the Johnson County Fair
at Buffalo the next summer, he decided to enter the bucking contest. "Tud"
had drawn " Funeral Wagon," a big gray horse with a nasty reputation. He rode
the first day and, as he approached the chute, the H-Bar section cheered loudly.
He rode Funeral Wagon to a glorious finish, scratching him all the time. He
won the first money and also third money in the calf roping contest. Tud returned
to the ranch a feted hero, which he still is today.
He is still riding the ranges of the H-Bar and will probably do so for many
years to come. What makes him seem so fine? Why have I written of him?

A PROMISE KEPT
It was in a land called Larcretes that a dark-haired, green-eyed maiden loved
a fair, brave man. But the maiden, whose name was known as Melusine, was a
princess while her lover was a soldier and with a somewhat shady past. He was
called Callistion, and by some, The Clever One. Numberless were the ladies
who had held an unrequited love for this gallant Callistion, and it was told that
some had died for it. But now that Callistion loved, and, as it seemed, so hope-
lessly, it was with his whole soul, and Melusine responded.
They were walking in the Court of the Sun, a garden in Melusine's quarters,
and Callistion played nervously with the glossy ends of Melusine's long hair and
he was saying, "It seems a crime like those for which men burn in hell to take a
love like yours, which I do not deserve, oh Melusine. It is like some vile beggar
who, perchance on a hillside, passes a frail flower, and knowing that against his
filthy bosom it will die, is too weak to resist, picks it, and goes on."
But Melusine only smiled and very quietly replied, " It is good that men are
Callistion caught her white hand to his lips. " Some day, perhaps-but these
are idle dreams. Oh, Melusine, if I but knew that you loved me as I love you-
it seems impossible!"
Melusine only listened with untroubled eyes which seemed to plumb his heart
and to appraise all Callistion had ever thought or longed for since the day that
he was born, and she was as beautiful, it seemed to him, as the untroubled, gracious
angels are, and more compassionate.
On the next day came news of a new war with the mighty king of a neighbor-
ing country, and it was necessary that Callistion depart.
They walked again in the Court of the Sun and Melusine was calm. She took
a ring of emeralds from her hand and placed it on a golden cord about his neck,
because his fingers were too large.
"While life endures I pledge you faith, and service, Callistion. Now you go,
but first I wed you, here in the sight of God, and I bid you return to me, who am
your wife and servitor forever, now."
"I will return," he said.
Then in a little while she withdrew her lips from his and he went.
For a year the war was waged tirelessly and finally ended, but Callistion did
not return. And day after day Melusine walked up and down in the Court of
the Sun with unwavering hopes for him.
A day came when a young stranger sought audience with Melusine. The
princess sat in a high chair capped with a large lion's head in mahogany. It
gleamed above her head, but was less glorious than her own hair.
The young stranger recounted to her how he had been in Callistion's army
and how they had been captured and made slaves together. Afterwards he told
of how he had escaped with promises to Callistion to give news of him to Melusine.
"And now, tho' I am safe, he is still a fettered slave at the Court of Gaignars
and I have never seen a braver man, oh Princess! Do not weepf,
"I lack the time," said Melusine.
And when the stranger had gone she went into her chamber and gathered
such jewels as would ransom a pope. She plaited her marvelous hair and put on
a garment of wine velvet stitched in gold, and, under cover of the ensuing night,
slipped from the castle. She took her cream white horse and galloped toward
For days she rode, sleeping in a forest or at some strange inn. She found
no time in which to be afraid or to grieve the estate she was relinquishing so long
as Callistion lay in danger.
Thus Melusine came with time's course into a land of dark people and much
wickedness where Callistion was held prisoner. She begged an audience with the
king, a heathen lord, and obtained it, tho' Melusine did not know as much, with
ominous facility. Gaignars lay upon a long divan that was covered with a golden
cloth. He was a large and insolent person, adorned resplendently in silks and
He did not speak at all while Melusine explained that she had come to ransom
Callistion, but only watched her closely. When she had finished, "At what price?"
he asked. And Melusine displayed her jewels. He did not even heed them, but,
catching her by one small white wrist, forced her to her knees before him and
calmly said, "There is one way in which you can procure the freedom of Cal-
listion, and only one. I will take you as ransom."
Melusine answered with the quiet depths of turbulent rivers, " Sire, you demand
of me an impossibility."
For a moment there was silence and then Gaignars said, "It is a bargain. You
can do as you see fit. You can ransom him at my price-he will go free. If you
refuse I will not hinder you but Callistion will amuse the Court by being pulled
into pieces by four wild horses. Here is a girl who will show you to your quarters.
Think of my offer. In a while I will send it to you written and you must return it
signed, or unsigned, as you wish. It lies in your hands and I will take you at
your word." And Melusine departed.
Later Melusine read from the yellow parchment with the seal of Gaignars
these words: "The hand of Princess Melusine will ransom the full freedom of
Callistion. If she desires this let her sign below. If there is no signature, it is
understood that Callistion will be torn into pieces by four wild horses.
A great light shone in the eyes of Melusine and an odd smile played about
her lips. She returned the paper signed,
f 'il pledge my hand from the moment I see Callistion walk below my windows
At the appointed hour the people of the Court of Gaignars gathered in the
great festival hall of marble and mosaic. Gaignars sat on his huge gold throne
attired in green, shot through with gold so that when he moved he looked like
some bright sea monster. All was in preparation for the taking on of his new
bride, and all was in suspense. Slowly the heavy iron doors swung on their hinges
but, alas, it was not yet the bride. It was a page who carried in his hands a large
and handsome box of hammered silver with which he knelt before Gaignars.
The box was opened. It was lined with purple velvet, on the velvet cushion
in it lay a small white hand, severed at the wrist-a promise kept.

THERE ARE FAIRIES
This is the story of a little girl who didn't believe in fairies. Now, don't laugh
and say that couldn't be true, because it is. But it really wasn't her fault at all.
It was her papals and mamma's fault. You see, they were a very modern papa
and mamma, and being a modern papa and mamma means bringing their child
up according to books. And most books that tell about bringing up a child tell
all about just how much milk she should drink and how much cereal she should
eat, but don't say a word about fairies! But, too, it wasn't the people who write
the books' fault, because sometimes when you get to be old and wise enough to
write a book on that sort of thing you become so bookish and ogre-ish you forget
all about fairies. Still they don't mind, because they don't like people like thatg
but they were very sorry that Patsy Anne, for that was this little girl's name,
didn't believe in them, because Patsy Anne was such a nice little girl otherwise.
One day, as Patsy Anne was sitting in the garden looking at the holly-hock
ladies all nodding in a row fof course she didn't know they were ladies, but she
did think they were prettyj suddenly she noticed a great bustle and rustle among
the leaves. Looking down she saw the queerest thing, a little wizened old man
who very politely took off his hat and bowed to her, bowing so low that his long
beautifully-combed beard touched the ground.
"How do you do?', said he, in the pleasantest of tones, though so little was the
sound she had to lean way over to hear him.
"Very well, thank you. How do you do?" Patsy Anne answered, wondering
if she should curtsy the way her mother had taught her to. Looking at him she
decided "no,', for he was so small she was afraid she might frighten him if she
should suddenly rise up.
"The same, ma'am," this queer creature answered. "It's a very nice morn-
ing, isnlt it?"
"Why, heis like a regular person only very small and oh, so very old," thought
Patsy Anne. "He talks just like the man that came to visit Papa the other day.
Maybe he will stay a while and talk to me, for it is very lonesome here now Mam-
"Of course I'll stay if you'll invite me," suddenly piped up the wee voice.
"Why-why how did you know what I was thinking?" gasped Patsy Anne,
a little frightened by this strange happening.
"All fairies know what is going on in little girls' minds."
" But there are no fairies. My mother says so."
"No fairies! Why, I'm a fairy, so there must bel But I know who you are.
You are the little girl the fairy queen sent me to find. You are invited to the fairy
ball that will take place in the land of blue moonlight when the moon is blue.
Thatls tomorrow night," answered the fairy, forgetting his indignation in de-
livering his message.
"A ball! Oh, how much fun!" joyously Patsy Anne clapped her hands
together. "You mean a really truly ball like Mamma goes to all dressed up and
with a flower in her hair? But then-maybe she won't let me. I'm afraid she
thinks me too young."
"In fairyland no one is ever too young or too old to go places and have a
good time. Don't say a word to anyone and I'll be back for you tomorrow night
as the moonlight touches the tip of the sun dial." With this he disappeared as
suddenly as he had come.
Patsy Anne rubbed her eyes and wondered if she had been dreaming. She
looked at the hollyhocks and said, "Why, I do believe those are little ladies talk-
ing together. Maybe they'll know if it was a dream." And she asked them very
politely though a little timidly, for she was not used to addressing such small
ladies. "Did you see a little wizened old man, who calls himself a fairy, around
here somewhere?" But the hollyhocks only swayed to and fro, looking very wise
but saying nothing. "Maybe I didn't ask in the right way," thought Patsy
Anne, "but I don't know any other so I'll wait and see what happens tomorrow
All that day, all that night, and all the next day Patsy Anne tried to decide
if the queer fairy would really come.
On the night on which he had promised she leaned out of the window to watch
the moonlight as it slowly-oh, so slowly-crept up to the sun dial. At last it
reached it, and as if that had been a signal, suddenly on the window sill appeared
the little old fairy.
"Oh, you've come!" exclaimed Patsy Anne, scarcely able to believe her eyes.
"Of course, fairies always keep their promises. But we must hurry for it is
not wise to be late to a ball. They don't like to wait." With this the fairy pulled
her over the window sill and much to her surprise she was being pulled swiftly
through the air.

She found herself in a room-and yet it seemed outdoors too! The roof, so
far away, was of glass and so were the walls. Light, the blue moonlight, fell all
around, the moon and stars were strung up above somewhere, and there were
the most graceful of trees and vines, bearing flowers and posies of every kind.
In the center of the room was a small mound, all made of moss and forget-
me-nots, and in the center of that were two White thrones made of Easter lilies,
and in each lily was a lovely fairy. It was all quite the most beautiful thing Patsy
Anne had ever seen.
One was a fairy man, one a fairy woman, and both were dressed in soft white
and gold, and both had on their heads gold crowns, and in each crown shone
jewels that were either diamonds or dewdrops.
Without thinking what she was doing, Patsy Anne bowed deeply. For though
the book had known nothing about fairies, it had known about manners.
This seemed to please the little lady and " Come nearer," she said.
"Who are you, please?" asked Patsy Anne, trying very hard not to stare.
At this, all the fairies seemed aghast.
F "Why, I'm Titania and this is Oberon. We are the King and Queen of the
"Then there really are fairies," exclaimed Patsy Anne, at last convinced.
"Most assuredly," answered Oberon, very proudly. It is only the people
who, are brought up on books who donlt think so. Everyone else knows there
just then the fairy music began again, and a circle of fairies, barefooted, hand
in hand, ran out upon a bank of moss and began to dance.
" Come with me, Patsy Anne. I have something for you," smiled Coralie.
With this she took Patsy Anne over to a corner where was piled a stack of what
looked like pale blue mist. Reaching out, Coralie picked up some of it and fastened
it on Patsy Anne's shoulders. "Those are wings, my dear, and with them you
can fly just like real fairies."
Patsy Anne discovered she really could, and that she, too, was of fairy size.
It was wonderful! Never had she felt so light, so happy! just to see if she
could she flew almost to the great glass roof. Coralie then took her hand and they
went to explore Fairyland. During the next few hours, Patsy Anne saw all the
fairy things that all other children had always heard or read about since they were
babies, but few had ever seen.
She swung in the heart of a morning glory. She danced until she was breath-
less to fairy music. Once she danced with the fairy king himself. She listened
to a cricket band, saw fireworks by a company of trained fireflies, heard fairies
blowing on honeysuckle trumpets, and had a ride in a coach made of a tiger lily
and drawn through the air by a team of humming birds!
Finally, a fairy trumpet was blown and then, standing before her, was the
little old man, waiting to take her back home.
"Please let me say goodbye to Queen Titania and King Oberon,', she asked.
"Of course, dear, you may," said the lovely little lady, and kissed her twice,
once on each corner of her mouth. "Those are fairy kisses of happiness, child.
Your mouth will always curve upward now and you will never frown."
"Thank you so much, and I've had such a lovely time. Goodbye!" Patsy
Anne turned reluctantly away, sorry to leave this glorious place.
"Hurry, Patsy Anne, we must be going home," cried the little man.
Homeward they raced as fast as they could, and almost before she knew it
Patsy Anne was back in bed and sound asleep.
In the morning when she. woke up she rubbed her eyes again, still wondering
if it was a dream. But no--the corners of her mouth were still turned up.
And the next time her mother told her there were no fairies Patsy Anne said
nothing but felt the corners of her mouth turning up from the Fairy Queen's kiss.

O Heart, that rises strong in the morning light,
And laughing, fresh-eyed greets the new, blue day
With joy as keen and bright as gleam of steel
That flashing strikes the wondering delighted eyes of meg

Now, as clouds far-blown by the keen, clean wind,
Art free, and happy o'er such glorious nothings,
From night and dark and doubt arise?-Here's Dawn!

LAND OF ST. PATRICK
CAfter the manner of the Odysseyj
Soon we drew near the island of Ireland, land of St. Patrick, where the hearty
Irish dwell. All around us sparkled deep, green waters. From the distance the
isle was shrouded in a deep, early morning fog. Then we watched with eager
eyes the fast growth of the island until its shoreline became distinct. Terraced
and sloping hills of "patch-work-quilt" fields rambled over the countryside. On
one site was a decayed castle, once a strong fortress.
Upon the proud boat all was confusion. Interested tourists hung over the
rail, eagerly scanning the picturesque place, stewards, weighted down with bag-
gage, hurried here and there, and those getting off at quaint Queenstown bustled
with last minute preparations.
Here at this emerald isle, land of the Irish, our boat dropped anchor. The
tender, then came forth to our proud boat, bringing with it hearty Irish peddlers,
hardened with toil. While the passengers and luggage were being stowed on the
deck of the tender, these peddlers sold their wares, shouting in coarse, peasant
When all was in preparation aboard the tender, they hurried back. Our
proud boat set sail while we stood on deck, watching the shores fast disappearing
into the dusk until finally even the blinking lights had vanished. Thus ended
our visit to the emerald isle, land of the Irish.

Mrs. Wire-" Look at my husband! Oh dear, he has gone to sleep! Oh dear!
oh dear! What shall I do? He will never win a prize that way."
Mrs. Scottie-"Just see my husband-that smart looking Scottish terrier.
He has won over ten blue ribbons."
Mrs. Wire-"How wonderful! Cinders has only one pitiful blue ribbon to
his credit, but he is a devoted husband just the same.',
Mrs. Scottie-"As I have told you many times before, the Scottish terrier
is a much smarter dog that the wire haired breed, and this just proves it."
Mrs. Wire Cgetting angryl-"Cinders can run and jump, but your lazy hus-
band Cannot. All he ever does is pose for prizes."
Mrs. Scottie fgetting angry alsol-"I beg your pardon but my Laddie is not
lazy, and he can run and jump as well as your Cinders."
Mrs. Wire fas Judges enterj-"Pst, Cinders-prick up your ears, my dearf'
Mrs. Scottie-"I never have to remind my husband of the Correct form. He
always does the proper thing."
Mrs. Wire-"I am so nervous I don't know what to do. See how my paw
trembles and feel how hot my nose is. Those Judges hardly looked at Cinders
and see how much time they are spending over Laddie."
Mrs. Scottie-"Naturally they are particular when deciding on a first prize!"
Judge-"The Blue Ribbon is unanimously awarded to Exhibit No. 13, the
Wire haired Fox Terrier, Cinders . . . The Red Ribbon goes to Exhibit No.
I, the Scottish Terrier, Laddie."
Mrs. Scottie Cturning up her little black nosej-"Congratulations, Mrs. Wire-
and good day!"

The stars are silver,
The moon is low,
The world is lighted
By its glow-
As a lantern hung from
The Door of the Sky
To light the Pilgrim
And its rays are found
In the birdling's nest,
They have lulled a sleeping child to rest.
And a comet shall Hame
As it whirls fiercely by
The moon all aglow in a cloud-drifted sky.
SHIRLEY LOGAN, Grade VIII
White on the black of waters,
Pale as the lone white star,
Splattered and splashed with the pale red-gold,
As the sun that is rising afar.
Softly the pine trees are sighing,
Their shadows are long and deep,
They nod, as the waterlily
Is wakened from out her sleep.
The dew that lies on her chalice
Shines with a lustre bright-
Perhaps a dying reminder
Of the moon, the stars, and the night.
For the stars are as pearls for their beauty
And the water lilies that lie V
VVhite on the black of the water
Are stars dropped from out of the sky.

THE FLOWER WEDDING
One morning very early when the sun was just coming over the hill the trumpet
Bowers blew three blasts, which in flower land means for all the inhabitants to
assemble. When this had been done, a large orange chrysanthemum stepped
forward and said: "We announce the wedding of Miss Lovewell Rose to Mr.
Goldenrod Glory on Saturday at midnight. You are all invited to attend." A
wedding! Everything was in a hubbub and everybody was busy preparing for
the eventful happening.
At last the time arrived and everybody was assembled. Two bee messengers
came first, followed by six sweet peas and six morning glories as bridesmaids.
There were twelve bee ushers, one orchid maid of honor, one Carnation best man,
and two baby roses for flower girls. The minister was a stately Jack-in-the-
The orchestra of darning needles played the wedding march. The path was
covered with moss and the flower girls sprinkled feathery shreds of milk weed
on the air. The moon shone silver all over the garden as the bride and groom
came down the path. The bride's dress was made of silken cobwebs and sparkled
with dew diamonds. They knelt on a pillow of milk weed and the minister pro-
nounced them man and wife. After the wedding, refreshments were served on
The presents were a set of lovely acorn dishes, a blue robin's egg filled with
perfume, and a beautiful wardrobe of dresses which the spiders had spun for her.
Then the bride and groom went to a water-lily boat drawn by a swan, and
glided down the moonlit river on their honeymoon.

Surfside presents a lovely picture of the Ocean on a foggy morning, before
the sun is up and when the surf is breaking over the beach with tremendous force.
The spray blows in one's face and one can hardly see through the mist that rises.
The waves look like towering green mountains which suddenly break with a
thundering sound, rolling over and over on the hard, Wet sand, and thinning out
into a pale green fringe of foam and bubbles.

MY VIRGINIA MAMMY
------i Many years ago, during the time of slavery inithe
South, a little darky was born on a Virginian plantation.
When she was about seven or eight years old she
became a servant to a little girl about her own age,
whom she called her mistress. During the time they
grew up the Civil War broke out, and slavery was
abolished. At the age of sixteen the darky servant
married, and she and her husband went to live on a
farm of their own where they brought up about ten
or twelve little pickaninnies. Soon hard times came:
her husband died and her home caught fire and burned
to the ground. She was forced to go into the city of
Richmond to find work in order to support her little
One day when I was three or four years old and
was in the park playing with my ball, a kindly-faced
old negress came up and spoke to me. After question-
ing me and finding out that I had no mammy and
asking me where I lived, she bade me goodbye and promised to come and see me
About a week later, when I was very sick with bronchitis, our maid came to
the door and told mother that an old mammy wanted to see her. Mother refused,
but just then she was called to the telephone, Mammy slipped into the bed-
room, and as I was crying she picked me up in her arms and rocked me until I
fell asleep. Of course from then on she was my Virginia Mammy, and many
times she has told me the story I have told to you.

The jungle is a beautiful place, with its smoothly flowing rivers and mossy
banks. Crocodiles bask in the sun or lie in the mud, waiting for food. Trailing
vines and Creepers wrap themselves around trees. Shimmery butterflies float
about with their gauzy wings. Huge trees, centuries old, stand in stately peace.
Feathery birds with gorgeous plumage fly about or perch on tree tops. Tall
grasses wave airily in the breeze. Ferns with their lacy patterns grow everywhere.
Bright flowers add their color and beauty to the scene. Monkeys chatter in the
branches. In the night the moon beams down on the jungle, flooding it with
an unearthly strange silver light. Lions roar, and hyenas laugh. Sometimes a
weird sound comes from nowhere-it seems. It is a native playing on his primitive
guitar. Then you will feel that lonely feeling you will only know in the jungle.

THE LITTLE RED CHAIR
VVe have in our schoolroom
A little red chair.
As long as I can remember
It's always been there.
We could not do without it,
We have had it so long,
We would feel very lonely
If it were gone.
We sit on it, we stand on it
To write upon the board.
We would feel if we did not have it
Like a soldier without his sword.
PATRICIA MEREDITH, Grade V
At home on my dressing table
I keep as many animals as I am able.
Each one has a different name,
And none of them are quite the same.
Each day when it is time to dust,
Our maid walks in with much disgust.
She says they are a nuisance too,
But I do not know what to do.

Poseidon was the god of the sea,
And a very mighty god was he.
A iisherman's trident he holds in his hand
And of the whole sea he has command.
Every white wave and sea green cave he owns,
Even the wind that through the sea moans.

THE FAITHFUL DOG
One cold winter day Lucy's mother sent her and her dog, Tray, to her grand-
mother's house. Lucy was to stay for supper and come home before dark. It
was light when she started but a big storm came up and she lost her way. Tray
followed close at her heels but she soon got tired and lay down in the snow and
fell fast asleep. Her parents were worried so her father went out to look for her.
Suddenly he heard Tray barking and walked towards the noise until he came upon
Lucy lying in the snow. Poor Lucy had been there so long that she was almost
frozen. Tray saved her life by keeping her warm and barking for help.

Last night it was very still in the hall. There was no sound but my ticking.
Suddenly in the moonlight I saw two little mice. They were playing hide-and-
go-seek. The big mouse ran over my face to get into the hole in the wall. I did
I10t like it and struck one and down the mouse ran to his hole and never came back
to the hall again.

THE BAD LITTLE BOY AND
THE GOOD LITTLE GIRL
Once there was a little girl and her name was Helen. One day her mother
bought her a kitten. Helen was very happy with the kitten but she would have
been happier had there not been a bad little boy who lived next to them. One
day the kitten got out of Helenls yard. Helen did not notice this for she was
playing with some children. All of a sudden she heard a piteous mewing and so
she looked up and there was her little kitten by her side. just then she saw the
bad boy and he had evidently been throwing stones at Puff Cfor that was the
kitten's namej. She scolded the boy severely and she never let the kitten out
of the yard again.

Once there was a little flower. She was asleep all winter. One day early in
the spring the sun shone bright and said to the flower, "Come out, little flower."
The flower did not hear the sun at first. The flower liked her nap. But she said,
"ML Sun, are the robins here?" The sun said, "Come and see." The flower
got up in her white night cap. When the robins sang the grass turned green.
"'Tis springf, said the sun. ",Tis springf,

THE BLUEBIRDS AND
There was a little bluebird sitting on her nest,
The mother flew away and then there were less.
I saw a little robin come hop, hop, hop.
I tried to catch him but he would not stop.
There were two little birds that were happy and gay,
One flew away the very next day.

This year archery was a new sport in our curriculum. Only the l"reshmen and
the liiglnh and Seventh Grades had an opportunity to try out.
We went up north to the archery grounds every Xlonday afternoon and there
with a full equipment, we practiced for an hour.
Archery is indeed an interesting addition to our athletic fun, and we hope
that the whole high school may become interested in it next year.

The tennis season this year was one of the most exciting and interesting features
of the athletic program. The weather was most favorable and after a few weeks
of practice the tournaments began. Both doubles and singles were played. Nlany
girls turned out, and the close of some thrilling preliminaries found Priscilla
Sims and jane Cotton prize winners for doubles. The singles were fast, with
.lean llyman carrying away the honors. -TANI-I QTOTTON, '30
ATH LICTIK' ASSUVIATIUN
The Girls' Athletic Association has endeavored this year to establish new
and higher standards. lfncouraged by the enthusiasm of Miss Thacher and
Nliss Harding, we have been able to attempt new schemes.
The .Association enforced rules regarding uniforms to be worn by the girls
on the hockey field, and although it was not very popular, it looked much better.
Of great importance to the athletes is the point system which the Association
offers. Pins are presented to girls making over three hundred points in one year-W
the G. A, A. pin. Girls making seven hundred points in two years are awarded
the lf S. G. pin. The girl earning the highest number of points in her class re-
ceives a pendant. Probably the greatest honor goes to the winner of a cup pre-
sented to the best all-around athlete in the school, though hockey, baseball, and
basketball cups are given to the classes who prove themselves winners in these
sports. Nona Roisifgvxrs, '30

THE POSTURE CLASSES
At first thought, few of us realize the importance of good posture. Yet it
is hard to over-exaggerate its value. For good posture is one of the chief factors
of poise, poise is the foundation of self-confidence and dignity, which, in turn, are
essential to success. Again, posture has a very decided effect upon health. A
slouched position generally means misplaced internal organs and, consequently,
a decrease in energy, stamina, and general health.
In the weekly posture classes, the girls are taught first what good posture is,
for it is a fact that some girls really do not know, or else, knowing do not care.
In small groups, exercises are then given which improve their general posture.
This weekly work must, of course, be augmented by honest daily efforts on the
part of the individual to accomplish best results. Everyone seems interested
and we hope in time to have a school of modern Dianas as the result.

Basketball-another trip into Ll. S. G's sport world and a worth while One,
too. We can't remember in many years having such a fine turn Out in all the
classes. Every one seemed to want to play. liven the Seniors came forth, in
spite of play practice and other duties, and produced two good teams. The A
team is the Varsity this year, which speaks highly for Senior ability and team-
work. The Sophomores deserve recognition for their plucky scrappy players.
They fought every minute. The Freshmen and Juniors could boast teams better
than the average, too.
One of the best things of the season was that those who were not fortunate
to make the teams watched and cheered the games. lt put spirit and pep into
the teams and we think some of the excellent playing was due to the loyalty
behind the net.
An outstanding game was that between the Senior A and Sophomores. The
Seniors had a hard time sinking baskets and the Sophomores gave them the best
opposition they met. Holding the Sophs practically scoreless during the third
period accounted for the winning margin.

CASTANON PRIZE DRAWING
BY RUTH VAN SANT
ALUMN AE NOTES
I have been trying to think of a title for this letter, and "A Voice from the
Past" was the best I could do. It's really been ages since I had a chance to talk
to you and tell you all the news of our illustrious class. I suppose that you are
all managing to get along without us. I know that each class thinks that class
the only one, and therefore indispensable. But enough of this palaver.
As you know, seven of us are at college, five at Finishing School, two at Business
College, and one-Wilna Guterman-is a P.G. at U. S. G. Marion Pruyn is a
co-ed at a college in New Orleans and, from what I hear, is liking it very much.
Lorraine Maginnis is at Knox and Winifred DeForest at Connecticut, can't you
just see those two? Winnie's infectious giggle echoing through the dorms and
Lollie Maginnis flying down the hockey field? Both Helen Hebert and Mildred
Hackl are working hard at the University of Chicago. Betty Kellogg is at Pem-
broke Hall. She was in rather a bad automobile accident this winter, but it
didn't deter her from her studies. She had them sent home, and now she is back
at school and keeping right up with her class. There is Roslyn Sincere at Wel-
lesley, and Sarah F. McKee at Knox. Patty Ellwood is at Spence in New York,
and Lura Schreiner is at Miss Beard's School in Orange, N. J.-still the same
efficient athlete, I imagine. Helen LaChance is at the French School speaking
nothing but French. She even writes me letters in French-and you all know
how good that is! Helen Howell is at the Finch School and in between studies
is having a whirl. Marnie Parsons and I are at Business College, though unfor-
tunately not at the same one. She is at Bryant-Stratton, and I'm gracing the
halls of Moser. What's that? Yes, I'm afraid that I still talk as much as ever.
We're all working hard but we're having our good times too.
I know each one of us sends the best of wishes to this year's class, and joins
with me in saying "Good luck to the CAS'l'ANON.,,

THE FAERIE QUEENE
Jo AND THE Doo
Two young females were pricking down the street
All ready for a day of work in school,
Until a pooch did think it was discreet
To show off like a little puppy fool.
He gave a leap as though to start a duel,
But leather only did his teeth y-strike
Not to be daunted was this little mule
Until his teeth he placed in leg aright
Which-let me state-he did with all his might.
JOSEPHINE LEAVENWORTH, '31
JACK AND JILL
There was upon a time Prince Jack who bore
A Princess in his arms whose name was Jill,
And on her lovely head a crown she wore.
They then together tried to climb a hill
Upon the top of which was placed a mill.
Now in his hands there was a little pail
With which he sought some water from a rill,
But then his legs which held him up did fail
And lol all down the hill both Jack and jill did sail.
MARTHA WILLIAMS 31
THE CAT AND THE BIRD
A little bird flew up into a tree
Close followed by a gray and ugly cat.
"O Mister Cat, why must you worry me?
I wouldn't think of bothering you like that,
And too, I'm sure that I should make you fat."
The cat, he said, "Oh listen, Birdie dear,"
And comely grinned as on the bough he sat
" Know every morning your shrill song I hear,
And now your day of reckoning at last is near!"
CHARLOTTE HUBBART, '31
THE EARS GF THE CASTANON
"What insect lives on the least food?"
"Well, the moth only eats holes."
Heard in the Cloak Room:
"It's to be a battle of wits."
"How brave you are to go unarmed!"
"Why were you late?"
"Sorry-but class began before I got here."
Miss Smith-"Mildred, what play is practicing now?,'
Mildred-"The other one!',
1: -i .s 1
Davy--"You learned this in fourth grade."
Dewey-"Girls, girls, I beg of you!"
Linnell Qjust after a testj-"Well, some of you passed!,'
. Sicot Cshockinglyj--"The French girl works very hard and never goes
Hobson-"Please assume a more scholarly attitude."
Cavins Ccalmlyj-"The assignment for tomorrow is the usual one-
thousand-word essay. "
Hinman-"I've had the same experience with my sons.',
Hackett-"The Eighth Grade may pass out."
Miss Wentworth Cafter sneezing twicej-"Thank you! I'll come right to
Miss De Riemer Ccasuallyj-"Miss Haire would like to see you."
Madame--"Children, when you come back tomorrow, please know some-
thing and stop chewing."
Smith-"Straighten out there, straighten out!"
Humphrey-"Yesterday when I was riding horseback-"
Large-"Sing wee-vah with your mouths wide open."
Mower-"Louder, please, so Miss Smith can hear you."
Harding-"Never dispute the referee's decision."
Rodenbaeck-"Girls, you're dreaming!"
Thacher--"I'll see you in the spring!"
Vogel Cin the hockey bus!-"We can't start until everyonels seated."
Locke-"Well, I'll see about it!"
Haire-"Now 1et's get back to 'Vergil'."
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN-
If Doris Leach came on time?
If certain Freshmen wore middies and skirts?
If everyone had good lessons?
If some boarder werenlt ill?
If "Pen" weren't always smiling?
If the eighth grade beat the Seniors in basketball?
If Mary Young cut her hair?
If everyone walked "single file" in the hall?
If all the juniors went out for basketball?
If Miss Dewey kept the window closed all one period?
If there weren't a Dorothy Braun?
If someone weren,t groaning about a test?
