12 THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR
By SALLY HOWELL, 9A '
ERE IT IS, the end of our term at
Central. What have we done ?
What have we seen ? Let's review it
Don't you remember when first we sat in
the auditorium waiting for a "big play" to
begin ? Anyway, the plays we saw when
in the seventh grade were "Oh Kay,","The
Private Tutor," and "The Thirteenth Chair."
In the eighth grade we sat watching "Man
or M6use,"' "A Strenuous Life," and "The
Arrival' of Kitty." This last year many of
us have participated in presenting the
plays. They were "The Ghost Bird,' "Seven
Chances," and "A Peach of a Family."
But' wait, we haven't mentioned the vau-
deville which has been put on by Mr. Harry
Graves Miller and Miss Margaret D. Meyer,
who also directed the plays. They gave a
vaudeville show with school talent twice
last year and once this year.
Ah, what's this approaching ? The P.T.A.
They sponsored in 1930, a carnival for
school funds. This last year they have
given a "Welfare Whoopee," the proceeds
of which have been used to buy clothes
and food for poor children attending Cen-
Ouch! A ball hittme. I couldn't forget
those sports. Our school basketball team
has been very successful in the past three
years. In 1930, the heavyweights and the
lightweighfs both won the city basketball
championship. Last year, the heavy weights
were again victorious, with lights tying for
the honor. In baseball, the team won the
championship for the last three years.
Pretty good? The girls tied for the baseball
championship for the lastyear with South.
"There's Music in the Air"-The popu-
lar air is coming true. It's coming in the
form of "The Courtship of Miles Standish,"
a contata put on while we were in the
seventh grade. "The Drum Major" was a
colorful operetta given last year. This
year there was another contata, "The
Voyage of Arion," and another poperetta,
"Oh, Doctor I" Last we remember the spring
concert in which the glee clubs, band, and
orchestra played, and, too, the assemblies
and parent-teacher meetings which the'
music department had aided.
The art department is one of the finest.
What have they done? ,Of course you
know they make posters for all the plays,
and carnivals. The outstanding pupils
have participated in many contests both
local and national.. To top off this splendid
record, we remember that Miss McEachron
and Miss Austin painted the scenery for
the opereta "The Drum Major" and also
for "Oh Doctor !" This scenery included
a woods scene composed of a border drop.
and four large wings. A beautifull curtain
drop of a French village street scene was
also painted to complete the set, thereby
saving Central funds about 5150.
Well, here we are at the end of our re-
view, so let's all say good-bye to Central.
The Reflector Club
OR THE past year the Reflector Club
has done wonderful work. The first
Refiector Club was Organized in 1924
in Central Junior High. Miss Flanders was
the director of the Reflector from 1924 to
1931g now Miss Meyer is in charge of it.
When Central started 'the Refiector Club
this year, pupils of all grades could join.
Each one handed in articles. If you did not
come every Friday, of course, three times
Reflector Club meets once a week on Fri-
days from 8:00 o'clock to 8:30. Each article
you hand in you get credit for. '
Each Reflector is very interesting. It tells
all the catastrophes, sorrows, joys, and hap-
piness our school has. Our parents seem
very much interested in this school paper.
If you are oneof the pupils having a
piece in it, you usually keep it, to show your
Reflector Club this year got up a literary
contest. The best poem, story, and essay
gets the big reward. There were over 150
people who entered the contest and the
winners are in this issue. '

THE ANNUAL REFLEc'roR 11
Ladies and Gentlemen, Board of Education,
the Superintendent, Teachers A
E, THE 9A CLASS of Central Junior
High, having reached the end of our
. career here, being of sound minds
and memories and considering the uncer-
tainty of this frail and transitory life, do
make, publish, and declare this Writing to
be our last will and testament, hereby
revoking and making void all other test-
imonial writings by us heretofore made.
As to which estate it has pleased the
fates and our own strong arms to give, we
dispose of the same as follows:
Item: We bequeath to our dear faculty,
who have been our kind instructors in all
the wisdom of the ages, a sweet and unbrok-
en session of sleepless nights and peace-
Item : To Mr. Chaffee we leave the
management of the school. iNow isn't
that nice and generous of us ?l
Item : We give to our beloved teacher,
Mr. Harry Graves Miller, a complete cast of
brilliant actors for a very successful play.
fOr plays-which is it ?l
Item: We give and bequeath to the lead-
ing paper of our school, "The Reflector,"
and to the talented Miss Meyer thereof,
all the events of our lives, past, present,
and to come, with all the wonders, sensa-
tions, hair-breadth escapes glorious attain-
ments, and other deserved or undeserved
notoriety and fame with which we may
have been, or may hereafter be associated,
trusting that they may furnish plenty of
material for news items and brilliant edi-
torials for ages yet to come, and serve as
an inspiration for those younger students
who so naturally look to us for examples.
Item: We give and bequeath to the fu-
ture 7th, Sth, and 9th grade classes all such
boys as were not able to keep pace with
such brilliant girls as compose the majority
of our class, trusting the girls may be able
to steer them firmly next year through the
gates of commencement that they may not
share our humiliation in not being able to
"hold our men folk." '
Item: The following we hope will be
accepted as valuable assets to those who
may receive them.
1. To the basketball team next year, the
ability of Tony B. and J. Murray. Q
2. To Melba D., M. Hoppe's gift of gab.
3. To anybody who needs them, our daily
excuses for being absent or tardy.
4. To some lucky person we bequeath S.
I-lowell's "Reflector" editorship.
5. To the girls we bequeath M. Westrom's
fascinating charms that hold the boys.
6. To Mrs. Ulman we leave the musical
gifts of K. Keane. "Music hath charms
to soothe the savage beast."
Item: The subjoined lists will be recog-
nized as entailed estates, to which we declare
the class of 1932-33 the real and rightful
1. Our unsurpassed dignity. May they
uphold it forever, with all serioushess and
gravity, endeavoring to realize its vast
importance, in spite of their natural light-
mindedness and irresponsibility.
2. Last of all, the hardest of all for
us to part With. To our successors we leave
our places in the hearts of the principal and
the teachers. The teachers will love you as
they have loved us. They will show you the
same tender kindness and attention they
have bestowed upon us. They will feel the
same about your successes and your failures.
We hope that the future classes-will appre-
ciate all this as deeply as we have done, that
it will be a most treasured possession and
you will loathe to part withit as we are.
Absolutely last we leave our blessing,
tender memories of our pleasant associa-
tions together, and our true pledge of most
sincere friendship from henceforth and for-
Lastly, we make, constitute, and appoint
the 9A Class of 1932-33 to be sole executors
of this our last will and testament.
' In witness thereof We, the class of 1931-
32, the testators, have to this, our will, set
our hands and seal this tenth day of June,
Anno Domini, one thousand nine hundred
