4 M THE CRIMSON AND GRAY MRS. ROSALIE RUBENSTEIN With sincere regret we learned of Mrs. Rosalie Ru- benstein's resignation this summer as music supervis- er of the schools of Southbridge. Her eleven years service, in the high school depart- ment alone, is studded with bright memories. The operettas-now a traditional activity of the high school year-from "The Bells of Beaujolais," attrac- tive with gay French peasant costumes, through Gil- bert and Sullivan's "Mikado," "H. M. S. Pinafore," and "The Pirates of Penzance"-gained their always overwhelming success through her untiring efforts. The first orchestra to be continued in personnel from year to year with orderly promotion in playing positions, and with, always, a recognized student di- rector assisting, came through Mrs. Rubenstein. A natural outgrowth of interest in instrumental music was the school band, For two years now, under the Harlow System, pupils have been trained in the use of band instruments. Last year four trumpets, six clarinets, two trombones, and one flute were pur- chased by the Glee Club as school instruments and loaned to members practising in the band. Hence an excellent foundation was prepared for the new de- velopments growing so encouragingly under Mr. Wins- ton's direction this year. Other additions to school equipment came through the more than self supporting Glee Club under her supervision: all music used by the orchestra and Glee Club, a drum outfit for the orchestra and band, and the Victor radio and victrola---which the entire school enjoys Graduates recognized as stars in past operettas owe much to her encouragement They have become engaged in minstrel shows and preparatory school shows radio engagements church choir work music as a life profession to say nothing of Annberta Law ton our representative last spring in the New England Choral Group at Hyannis Many musicians have deep and affectionate gratitude for her M s Rubenstein has cultivated the love of music so carefully in our high school life that a rich heritage has been prepared for Miss Berthe Hebert our new music superviser In gratitude then Mrs Rubenstein as we say au revoir we wish you the grectest happiness and loy in e E Before and After School After the 8 lO bell pupils must go to their home rooms and remain there until time for passing to the first period class Pupils entering after the 8 l5 bell are tardy and must go directly to their rooms and not loiter in the corridors or coat rooms Pupils must leave the building promptly at dis missal both noon and afternoon No loitering in the halls after school will be permitted Pupils remaining in the building after 3 O5 P M must be seated and at work all others must leave the building A pupil who has an appointment after school ldur ing detention periodl with some teacher must keep it unless excused until the next night by the office A pupil who has two or more appointments on the same night must come to the office to obtain a pass to one of the teachers No excuse for failure to keep such an appointment will be accepted after the time for the appointment F Miscellaneous All articles of value which have been found should be brought to the office and notice will be sent to home rooms H Smoking Smoking is forbidden to high school pupils during the school year in the building or on the grounds and will be dealt with os in the past THE EFFIE MAE Fleurette Demers 39 The Effie Mae was just a sloop At anchor in the bay Her sails were filled with evening w nd She itched to sail away We boarded the sloop we sailors three And a song of seamen sang As from the anchor we cut loose A gust of wind upsprang Oh the sails were full as sails should be And the bow bobbed up and down We cut a gouge into the sea And she looked back with a frown We sailed the channel high and wide And all around the bay When dusk drew on and sea gulls cried For home we made our way The moon rose high in silver light While from the sand we looked The Effie Mae in splendor lay, In the moonlight s silvery brook , f , f , , , , . . . .
