TI-is ANNUAL REFLECTOR
By N W. Chalice
AST year we outlined a program of
work for 1928-29. It was individualize-
tion within the group. Teachers and
pupils have helped to start the work. Much
good work has been done by both. Much
remains to be done. Let us carry it further.
To do so requires an analysis of the
values prized by the world in general, by
business in particular. ,
You seek to purchase an automobile.
Some one points out the good qualities of a
car-you buy it. You are making faith in
fellow man practical by buying the car. Or
you carefully weigh advantages and disad.
vantages, mostly obtained through exper-
iences of others again-you make hzidi and
truth a practical asset. Or you realize there
are manygood automobiles and you proceed
to find the prettiest, most artistic, most
comfortable model. Now you make art and
design,-you make the aesthetic sense pract-
What inner qualities at first thought
held as sentimental, on later consideration,
become most practical in the world of
affairs. Are employers seeking young men
and women with dreams due the genius
of an Edison-perhaps so, but not in large
numbers. Rather, all employers are seek-
ing men and women with courage, bravery,
strength. Oh! We do not mean the showy
bravery which makes men stand and
exchange blows though that is sometimes
a practical asset. We mean the ability to
stay on, to accomplish, to overcome all
difficulty, to watch the faltering brothers
and sisters stumble and give up while the
brave one does things. We mean that
strength which, with the help of courage,
enables you to weather the storms of life,
to keep up and doing, though the "road
is long." There must be courage to under-
take-and to complete.
Business men want young people with
patience, those a little loatheto talk of wrong
to speak hurtfully ofothers or of themselves.
Thequality of kindness inthought and action
is practical. This gives the power to meet
people properly and treat elders or unfor-
tunates with helpfulness and respect. Try
to reason out a practical value in kindness.
How will it mean money? Finally we may
list intuition as a practicalsentiment. How
would you rate the the ability to sense a
need and a means of satisfying it-a service
to humanity? Is such a quality practical?
Does the saleslady use it? The merchant?
These qualities are not far away. They
are to be attained at will. But sometimes
they require Will power-a vision of the
future backed by practical habits. If you
would be successful take these, with Mr.
Guest, as your goals:
A little braver when the skies are gray,
A little stronger when the road seems long,
A little more of patience through the day,
And not so quick to magnify a wrong.
A little kinder, both of thought and deed,
A little gentler with the old and weak,
Swiiter to sense another's pressing need,
And not so fast the hurtful phrase to speak.
These are my goals-not Hung beyond my power
Not dreams of glory, beautiful but vain.
Not the great heights where buds of genius flower,
But simple splendors which I ought to gain.
These I can do and be from day to day
Along the humble pathway where I plod,
So that at last when I am called away
I need not make apologies to God.

THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR
Reflector Contest and I hope we can have
one soon again to give the pupils who did
not participate in the 'drst one a chance.
An exceptionally good story written by
a prize winner was "When Daddy Comes
Home" by Shirley Coy, who is now in
I am glad to be able to say that our
band and orchestra are increasing in size
every year and are occasionally giving
very good chapel programs.
I think that the semester of February,
1929, to June 1929, is one to be remembered
especiali because of the important things
that too place. For instance the cantata,
given in March at the City Auditorium,
that required hard work on the part of
Mrs. Ulman and Mr. Flueckinger, as well
as the pupils of our school and city.
Our best chapel program of the season
was "The Nifty Shop" given by the faculty
members. It was well done and enjoyed
immensely by everyone.
Our Friday afternoon shows are other
enjoyable events for our school. Among
the most outstanding ones were: "The Fair
Co-ed" featuring Marion Davies and John
Mack Browng the story told of humorous
college life. "The Scarlet Letter" featuring
Lillian Gish and Lars Hanson, told a story
of early American colonial life, "The Flam-
ing Forest" featuring Renee Adoree, was
one of the best and most exciting.
I hope that everyone in Central Junior
High School will work harder for a bigger
and better Reflector every year.
The Bugle Song
The following is a study from Tennyson's
"Bugle Song." The author tries to paint
a picture in the first verse. He describes a
castle with the last rays of sun falling on
its wall. Snowy mountains, and sunlit lakes
are in the background, with a leaping cat-
aract flowing by. He begs the bugle to blow
and answer the dying echoes.
The author hears faint clear notes going
farther away. He again implores the bugle
to answer the echoes that are dying. He
accounts for the hearing of the far away
notes as the horns of Elfiand.
Tennyson tells us that our echoes or
our thoughts are forever rolling from
soul to soul, and are forever growing. The
echoes of the bugle die but our words and
actions never die.

THE ANNUAL REI-'LECTOR
ssvmrm mums GROUP. sscnorl ou:
Andoxius Adventure With the Cruel King
HILE HERCULES was returning
from taming some wild horses he
passed through a large forest where
he found a tiny babe whom he decided to
keep and raise.
Hercules named this babe Andoxius
which means "small one." Andoxius was
certainly small, When he was twelve years
old he had stopped growing and was but
four feet high. But there was a reason
for this and herein lies the tale.
A cruel king who was Herucles' cousin
and who made Hercules do all these
gigantic tasks was taking care of little An-
doxius while Hercules was after the war-
like Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons. This
cruel King was naturally jealous of the
noble Hercules and so decided to take re-
venge on little Andoxius whom Hercules
loved very much. One day the king dropped
Andoxius and injured his spine.
Hercules was very sad and troubled
about this because he wanted Andoxius to
become a mighty warrior. Andoxius had
spent the time in training just as any youth
of this time so that his arms were develop-
ed wonderfully. He was the best javelin
thrower in Greece. -
Now all this time Hercules was trying
to find out who or what had injured An-
doxius and was about to give up all hope
when a servant who had been mistreated
by the cruel king told Hercules how the
king had done this.
When Hercules found out it was his
cruel cousin who had done this deed, he
tried to ponder out the most terrible way
in which to punish him. But Andoxius
who had heard this decided on a way of
his own. A
He found the cruel king walking along
beside this great wall where there were
many creepers and vines. Immediately he
threw one of his javelins and inned the
king to the wall by the robe. Then taking
apparently no aim he placed a javelin
right under the left armpit of the king.
You can imaiixne the suffering the cruel
king was going t ough with javelins flying
around his body, hemming him in and pinn-
ing his robe tight around him.
But Hercules carne to the rescue and
unpinning his wicked cousin, the king, he
took him down to where Pluto, King of the
Underworld ruled and tied him between
two great rocks where he could watch the
suffering of other wicked people. If you
everlmeet Quicksilver ask him if Hercules'
cousin is still there fwhich he probably isl.
As for Andoxius you will probably hear
more of this adventure with Hercules.
