TABLE OF CONTENTS
- THF GREE.'t' ANU HOLD
This last number of the "Green and Gold" is dedicated to- the
Senior Class, to those looys and girls to whom we must bid farewell.
Graduation is the goal of every student: they have reached the goal
and stand ready to venture forth into a bustling, workaday world.
Commencement is a time both of retrospect and of anticipation, of
glancing back over four years of study and fun, and of looking for-
ward into, let us hope, a bright and happy future. We wish the
members of '28 the best that Fortune can give, and, with a regretful
wave of the hand, we bid them Godspeed. Good-bye, Seniors!
Graduation! All too soon it will have taken place, and then-
what? For some of us, perhaps, college 5 for others possibly, an of-
ficeg for many, probably, common labor g but for all of us, regardless
of occupations, ambitions, or attainments, graduation will have meant
the same. It will have meant the severing of ties, made during our
four years of high school life, ties which, perhaps, most of us do not
realize are existing-g yet they are existing, and though their presence
may not be properly appreciated now, it will become all too apparent
as we leave for the last time in the capacity of students those walls
which have surrounded us for the past four years.
Probably a foolish-sounding suggestion, that of ties to some of
those undergraduates who still imagine that text books and class
rooms are the only components of high school life, and who cannot
see why we should have regrets at leaving it. Indeed, a year or two
ago it would have seemed so to us, but now on the very threshold of
graduation, we pause to consider that very uncertain future which
looms before us.
Perhaps, you may say, a future viewed from a commencement
platform should not appear dreary or uncertain. True, it is not the
THE fIHI'TE','V ANI! GOLD 3
dreariness nor the uncertainty which causes us to think, but an awe
of that future whose mysteries are yet to be solved, coupled with
pangs of regret at leaving our Alma Mater. Here we have studied and
worked together. We have come to know each other, both in the
class room and on the athletic field, in school and out. We have
become friends, some mor closely than others, of course, but cer-
tainly there is a common bond uniting us all. We shall realize this
bond with the greatest of seriousness when we meet, some of us for
the last time, perhaps, on graduation eve.

A GLORIOUS FAILURE
The man, dressed in dark clothes and wearing a slouch hat, was
hardly distinguishable in the gloom. He was, indeed, a suspicious
looking cha1'acte1' as he slunk along the drive leading up to the magnifi-
cent home among the trees, dim in the gathering gloom. Carefully,
he opened a French window and groped his way in. He paused.
listened, and then furtively flashed a light around the richly fur-
nished room. In one corner stood a carved cabinet, the receptacle of
many valuables treasured by the family that dwelt in this grand old
In another minute the burglar was at his work. Suddenly, mys-
teriously, noiselessly, a door behind him opened. The man stopped
and turned. Behold! a sleepy child of about ten years stood in the
Threateningly the man took a step forward, saying at the same
time, "What d'ye think yah doing? Get to bed and stay there. Not
a peep outa yah."
The boy hesitated. Finally he gasped, "Oh, Sir, you shou1dn't
do that. I don't care about the stuff, because I never have a chance
to touch, but it isn't yours, you know. Besides, if you were caught."
The law-breaker, a little surprised and angry, stared at the
youngster. The man was la weak character, and the child's fine eyes
seemed to burn him with their scorn. Then he turned and slowly,
like an old man, left the Way he had COITIE.
Slinking Joe, as he was called, never attempted robbing again.
Instead he became one of the best friends of the little boy who had
shown him the right. He had not gained a fortune of ill-gotten
riches, but something far more precious, his own self-respect, and a
resolve to lead an honest life.
-Charity Mead, '29.
We of the United States do not believe in the worship of gods.
If we consider idols or gods at all, we feel a vague sort of pity for the
This .x'cc1i'fvoof: uns cIig'1'f1'30d fix' l'OfZIlIfCUI'8f1'O

people who worship themg but it does not occur to us that we also
worship gods, even if we do not burn incense to them and lay sacri-
fices at their altars.
The chief of these is the great god Pleasure. Not only in our
own country, but in all countries, by all nations, races, and nation-
alities is he worshipped and adored. After him come the other gods,
but he is the Supreme Being, the Father and Founder of them all.
First let us consider Sport. 1-Ie-is a laughing, curly-headed, big-
chested fellow, whom we would all love to join even if we cannot. He
is a companion and persistent friend to us rather than an idol. Col-
leges, schools, boys, girls, men, and women all flock to his call, leav-
ing other things to be done as best they may. Consider the huge
crowds which gather at prize fights, golf tournaments, baseball and
football games, and know that Sport is irresistible.
Shaking dice in one hand with a glass of beer in the other, and
propping his feet against the table, Betting holds his court. We pur-
sue him even without knowing it. He draws all types of people.
There is hardly any man who does not worship him, even while Bet-
ting shocks him.
Now comes Fashion with highly rouged cheeks, dangling ear-
rings, and painted mouth. She is a flirt, always changing, and vary-
ing as the winds, but ever drawing and fascinating, overcoming
scruples and lack of means. We worship her in spring, summer,
winter, and autumn. Her voice is never still, and tantalizing, she
compels us to go on and on, never leaving us but always leading, and
laughing at us as we stumble after her.
The god "Everybody does it" is responsible for a great deal. He
is a nagging sort of god, persistent, and never still. He urges people
to read the current books and papers. We get the magazines, pictures,
radios, automobiles, because he decrees. His sister, "That just isn't
done," is what in these modern times we would call an "old cat." Her
eyes watch us continually, and she picks flaws in everything. She
causes much trouble in the world as she often antagonizes people to
such an extent that they do just as she tells them not to do. If We
disobey her she ruins us, and if we obey her we are unhappy.
Business comes puffing importantly to the fore. His chest is
swelled with importance. He is constantly chewing a cigar, and a
diamond stud glitters in his tie. We may think he is not a true child
of Pleasureg however, some worship him because they love him.
There are the money-makers, who are his satellites. The greater
majority of us are his slaves and servantsg we bow to him because

we must. His is the hand which feeds us. Cowering at his feet, we
tremblingly carry out his orders, else we starve.
Money! Does anyone fail to recognize and follow him? He daz-
zles and delights us and makes us do disagreeable tasks to gain his
favor. He lures and gleams beyond our blind and grasping reach.
Finally when we have gained him, we find he is dissipated and shallow,
and he and life bore and disillusion us.
Beating time with his feet, snapping his fingers and keeping
time in every limb, Jazz draws us, and absurdly we do exactly as he
does. We zestfully and willingly fall prey to his magic. With him
comes his "best girl," Dance. Twirling on her toes, swaying her body,
and stretching her hands to us, she whirls us into her madcap train.
At night her charm is strongest, and we cannot help but follow one
so beautiful, graceful, and invigorating.
Picnic leverybody knows himj is a Puck, a mischievous merry
fellow, who trips us and pricks us with thorns, puts grasshoppers,
spiders and ants into our food, tips cups out of our hands, and burns
our unwary fingers. We swear at and curse him, and then run after
him, begging him to come back to us, for he is lovable in spite of
Movies' face is handsome, and finely chiseled and molded. His
hair ripples in perfect curls upon his handsome head. Our submis-
sion is completeg he allures us and amuses himself by watching our
rapt and whole-hearted expression of devout worship. He drops favors
into our hands, and we, ever-reaching, ask for more, and smiling
amusedly he gives us more.
Cigarette, festooned in smoke and hung with garlands of green
tobacco leaves, is one of our most popular idols. His worshippers
originally were mostly those of the male sex, but now, females as well
eagerly seek him. The price we pay for his favor is jumping nerves,
weak hearts, diseased lungs, and often he draws us into the ground
itself if his grasp upon us is strong enough.
Joy Ride is a reckless, happy boy. I-Ie fleetly runs to Death and
Destruction, his boon companions, and we follow, trusting in his
guidance. and unaware that his laughter is mockery and his goal our
There is Leisure, a queer person, but lovable and dependable if
we try to understand her. Most of us hate her and make every excuse
we can to avoid her inevitable presence. But, she is always with us,
and try to escape her as we may, it is of no avail. If we accept and
treat her rightly, she is one of the best of our idols.

Mischief, ever among us, is one of the followers of Satan. In fact,
we might almost say that Mischief is Satan. He is unavoidableg we
meet him at every turn, try to avoid him, and are seized and made to
suffer for our folly. His rule is absolute. Not a person, but who
experiences his influence and grasp upon him. Mischief compels us,
and resisting, we proceed to do what we know is wrong.
Strong Drink reels along with a red nose and bleary eye. He is
found in every village and town. He is a pleasant companion for a
while, but one who refuses to take the blame for what he does, and
after his company we feel that he is our worst enemy.
Food, fat and gluttonous, beckons and influences us to become
as he is. I-Ie is another of the great idols of the American people. His
hand points out the road of self-indulgence, and we are only to will-
ing to follow that road.
Is there any one of us who has not felt the powerful and all-
extending influence of Laziness? He is just the opposite of Leisure.
Leisure should be accepted and loved 3 Laziness should be shunned and
abolished. Lolling upon a soft couch, with massive corpulent limbs
outstretched, he lies taunting us. If we do not heed him, we hear his
rude laugh, and if we do, we regret it afterward.
Gang is a "good guy," just a little bit rough, but with a good
heart even of he is apt to do wild things. He draws all men to him. His
following is huge and made up of all kinds and conditions of people.
We follow him unasking, and do as he does.
We do homage to you, oh Pleasure! You beckon, and we fol-
lowg you call, and we give heedg you lead, and we pursue you!
-Gertrude Marsh, '28.
"TI-lERE'S MANY A SLIP-"
Bobby Moore, young, good-looking, and broke, strolled down Fifth
Avenue with a broken heart and an empty purse. His heart was broken
because his girl had "turned him down".
"Bobby," she had said, "I like you a lot, but I'd love you if you
had some money. Go out and earn some, and when you have a few
thousands, we'il take the final step."

B THE GREEN ANU GOLD
"That was putting it rather strong, even for a modern flapperf'
thought Bobby as he strolled down the aforesaid Fifth Avenue with
the aforesaid broken heart and empty purse.
Now the purse was empty because, romantic as it may seem, the
rejected young man had gone out the night before to drown his sor-
rowsg to forget, if such a thing were possible, but it had been impossi-
ble. He must now secure work of some kind, or lose the only girl in
the world. Work had never troubled Bobby before, for he had always
lived with a wealthy uncle. The wealth and estate, however, would
not he Bobby's until the uncle's death.
In his deep musing, Bobby had not noticed his surroundings. He
was now opposite an inviting-looking park, and, being very tired from
thinking, he lay down on a bench and went to sleep. Sometime later
he was awakened by low voices. There on the next bench were his
sweetheart and an unknown young man, murmuring fondly to each
other, and-could be believe his eyes ?-the stranger was slipping a
gleaming golden circlet on her finger.
Curiously enough, Bobby felt no jealousy, but instead a strange
feeling of relief. "Gael What a narrow escape! And to think that
I almost went to work!" he ejaculated thankfully.

A very successful Easter dance was given by the Senior Class on
Friday evening, April thirteenth in.the Town Hall. A large crowd
attended and a good SLIITI was realized for the class fund. An orches-
tra from Rutland played. The committee in charge of the affair
comprised the following students: Goldie Cohn, Marjorie Mead, John
Maciag, and Eugene Burke. Mr. Martin is class adviser.
The Seniors have completed their essays. These essays, which
are now in the hands of the judges, are a requirement of the English
Department. A variety of interesting topics have been chosen by the
students. and the awards for prize-winning essays will be announced
on Graduation night.
The annual prize speaking contest open to students of any of the
four classes will be held on June thirteenth. Several are rehearsing
daily for the contest under the direction of Mr. Burns E. Martin.
THE CRIMSON STAR
On Friday night, April twenty-seventh, an operetta entitled "The
Crimson Star" was given in the Town Hall for the benefit of the
.Athletic Association. The production was coached and staged by
Miss Bliss, Supervisor of Music, and Mr. Martin, Coach of Dramatics.
The theme of the story is this: Greta, a peasant girl in the kingdom
of Lascenia, is really the princess of the realm, supposedly lost when
a child. She meets Leo, the King's step-son, and is wooed and won
by him. By means of a birthmark in the form of a crimson star on
her shoulder, her true identity is established. Meanwhile, Borah, the
king's nephew, who wishes his sister to have the honored title of
princess, plans to ahduct Greta with the aid of three hirelings. His
plot is found out, he is banished from the country, and Leo and Greta
are happily married.
Everyone in the cast performed creditably. Among the outstand-
ing performances were those of Charlotte Bliss in the part of Greta:
Helen Pifko, the inn keeper with a genuine Irish brogueg John Maciag
as Leo, G1'eta's lover: Leonard Dandrow as the villain Borahg Mar-
jorie Mead as the flirtatious Gillyg and her equally ridiculous lover,

The Senior Class chose this year for its annual production the
amusing comedy, The Whole Town's Talking. The play was coached
by Mr. Burns E. Martin, and when presented on the evening of June
third. proved to be one of the most successful ever given. Everyone
in the cast gave a creditable performance. Particularly worthy of
mention were Howard Potter, in the role of Chet Binney. Marjorie
Mead as Ethel Simmons, his fiance, and Gerald McCarthy, as Henry
Simmons. her father. The production was. from a financial point of
view, a gret success. Dancing followed the play.

We have on this season's team five veterans, namely, Stomper,
Ambrose, Leonard, Gallagher, and Pietryka. The gaps left on third
base. short stop, center and right fields have been filled with some
promising young players who are showing improvement every day.
The West Rutland High School team opened its season on April 28th
with a game against Fair Haven. The clever work of last yeai-'s bat-
tery, Ambrose and Leonard, together with the support of Olll' infield
and outfield, resulted in a victory over the Slate City team. The gaine
ended in a scoi of 6 to 2.
On May 5th, we defeated Pittsford High, 8 to 3. On May 12th
Proctor High defeated West Rutland in a hard fought, eleven-inning
game. Our defeat was due to lack of hitting power. On May 19th, we
defeated Middlebury by a score of 9 to 6. So far we have been credited
with three victories and one defeat. The remaining games are as
May 26 W. R. H. S. vs. Vergennes

. Track is a new sport for West Rutland High. The first call for
practice brought out a large crowd of ambitious boys who were glad to
participate in the new sport. Coach John Minnoch gave a few pointers
on training and condition which every track man should follow. The
next step was the selection of men for th different events. Each was
picked according to form, speed, and stamina.
Sprinte1's-Burke, McNamara, Maciag, Wolinsky.
Mile-Haik, Rydzewski, Mytych.
Half Mile-Burke, Hyjeck.
Relay-McNamara, Accorsi, Burke, Maciag.
Shot Put-Rosen, Maciag, Mumford.
J avelin-McNamara, Mytych, Bush, Monville.
Discus--Rosen, Monville, Mytych.
Bread Jump-McNamara, Hailc, McCarthy, Maciag.
A High Jump-McCarthy, Rosen.
The first meet was with Middlebury in which our team was de-
feated. Third place was secured by Burke in the 100 yd. dash. Rosen
and McCarthy tied for third place in the high jump. Rosen won third
place in the shot put. Maciag won the 220 yd. low hurdles. McNa-
mara, his running mate, came in second. Mytych was third in the
javelin throw. Rosen threw the discus 'ar enough to win second
place, while Monville won third place.
At present the team is much improved. Coach Minnoch, Capt.
Macaig, and Manager McNamara have laid plans for a possible inter-
scholastic meet between West Rutland. Rutland, Middlebury, Proctor,
and Black River Academy. Our team is also entered in the Norwich
meet. -John Maclag, 28.
