Undimm ' d by hu-man tears Willard Merry-go-round February 8 We ' ve started out with ambition bold. We hope we achieve for the " Green and Gold. " February 10 The advisory officers were elected today. They ' ll make Willard tops in every way. February 15 The Senior Committee ' s first meeting was held. Fun for everyone is what that spelled. February 16 Student Body Cards! There ' s not much time, Don ' t be tightwads. They ' re only a dime. February 18 The noon reading-room plan was installed today. It ' s a popular plan, and ' tis sure here to stay. February 19 Cooperation is greatly stressed. In the cafe pack your tray and leave like the rest. February 26 It was a noon dance they put on in our stride. Boys and girls came and they sure were alive. We had the first meeting of Girls ' Glee today. We elected our officers and sang. We were gay. March I Student Control officers stiffened their spines. Student offenders soon showed a decline. March 2 The Victory Book Drive put L7 ' s Number 4 on their toes. They were victors, sure thing! They used trucks for their loads. March 5 Two pictures were shown of art in the making, Stained Glass Windows " coupled with " Broadstroke Sketching. " March 8 For relief on all fronts Red Cross started its drive. To fill up those jars we all aimed to strive. Books for the soldiers were counted today. One thousand five hundred sixty-nine, our drive ' s total, were sent on their way. Poogie Poogie, the magician, and his bag of tricks came, With his rabbits, tall hats, and a stout walking cane. March 9 Student Control officers received a big treat. Elaine Batchelor sang at their first regular meet. March 10 " Brazil " and " Old Black Magic " were chosen by the jitterbugs To be used at Willard shindigs when they are cutting rugs. March 12 In costumes gruesome and clothing queer, The High Eights ' " Bad Taste " was exceedingly clear. March 17 At St. Pat ' s Dance today the prizes were dandy, For where else in the world could one find so much candy? March 20 " This World at War " was the picture shown To make the facts of Pearl Ffarbor known. March 23 In Scholarship Assembly addressed by Rev. Stripp, Brain specials were honored for Al scholarship. March 25 There was a meet for winners of " Letters. " The boys decided to purchase green sweaters. March 26 For China Relief a dance was held, And our donation was handsomely swelled. March 27 Say, pal, it ' s the launching of the new " Target " cam- paign, So you gotta shake loose from fifty-cents again. March 3 I The Emergency Corps was formed today. The Scouts practiced First Aid the Red Cross way. April I Bond and Stamp winners were Room Number 104. The assembly gave cheers and vowed to buy more. April 2 ' Twas the Big Sister Party for High Eights and Low. Their dresses how pretty! Each skirt had a bow. April 6 Almost four hundred and seventy-two American dollars flocked to our Red Cross Drive appeal. Many a wound and sad heart our glad gifts will soon heal.

We stepped on the gas, but the score was a tie. May 18 Victory gardens are popular at Willard these days, Susie Squash and Charlie Carrot show that war farming pays. May 24 The candidates down the stairs they flew. I couldn’t see them, neither could you. May 25 The candidates ' lists with votes were combed, And the defeated politicians sorrowfully moaned. May 27 " We ' ll do our best, " all the nominees cried, All but the W. G. L ' s, who appeared quite tongue- tied. May 28 Today ' s ballot decided without any fuss Sam Chapman ' s vice-president next semester for us.

' Twas a gem. We ' re sincere. June 7 A yell from a senior on " W. G. L. " stand, Brought a Low Nine girl to the front feeling grand. June I I Induction today with pledges of progress As this term ' s fine leaders came out of the harness. June 14 ' Twas the graduates ' dinner, and our fates were fore- told As we leave dear old Willard our futures to mold. To the P. T. A. our thanks we addressed. We ' ll better our best. We promised no less. June 18 Hail, Willard! Hail! Vacation’s begun. It ' s war work for us plus plenty of fun.
