page 12 THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR +43 1+ Class History 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 together. 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- tral. ' 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. GNSKD 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 and out. 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 friends. 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. ' By Marilyn Morrison, 8A f , iq,

V 'K-L sages 14 THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR +I 1+ The Reflector Literary Contest mHE Reflector Literary Contest, the results of which are herewith printed,was conducted during March and April in order to stimulate activity along literary lines as well as to create interest in this, our Annual Redector. We are happy to present the following selections out ' of over 100 praiseworthy entries and you may rest assured the judges had ' a very difficult time making their decisions. Our congratulations to every single person who entered the contest for the excellence of the material submitted. We wish every single one of you could have received a prize! Let us express our appreciation to the teachers who so generously gave their time in the judging of these entries. ' The Mystery Lady First Prize, Story Contest, by BIRD-ELLEN M. GAGE N a quaint old New England city on the shore of the Atlantic there is preserved an interesting relic-a carved figure- head of a beautiful woman holding aloft a laurel wreath, as if waiting for some de- serving stranger to appear to claim the honor. In the old days of whaling ships, every ship had its figurehead, in fact, sailors refused to sign on a ship that did not carry one which was usually the figure of a woman, as they looked upon such a figure as a sort of guardian angel which would lead them safely home to their families. The iigurehead that gives its name to my story is one of unusual beauty. For many years it crowned a ship chandler's establishment but on the retirement ofthe merchant, he placed it on the roof over the verandah of his fine new home. Onefine May day two children wereplay- ing in the sunny garden of this house while its owner, their grandfather, sat nearby in an easy garden chair watching, as always, the sea. One of the children, the eldest and a boy, suddenly stopped in his playand ran to his grandfather, saying, "Tell us again grandfather, the story of the Mystery Lady? "Very well, John,"replied the elderly man. With his words the child Margaret came running to take her favorite perch upon his knee. "lt was in 1865," began the grandfather, "that the ship the "Juan?1tcz,," of which I was captain, was speeding homeward on the Indian Ocean when suddenly the lookout shouted "woman afloat!" A boat was lowered. The sailors were surprised to see a colossal Hgure, delicately featured and painted, cradled in the arms of the sea. She was amazingly lifelike with black flow- ing hair and white robe. The laurel wreath in her hands was green. Carefully we raised the figure and hoisted it to our decks. Then we found her too large to be placed in the hold so all we could do was to saw the 'figure in two below the Waist and stew it away in the hold. There was no way of knowing to what ship she belonged. There had been many severe gales. Only one thing We could say with certainty, she must have headed some great merchant clipper voyag- ing to the Indies for silks and sandalwood, for this was no common figurehead. A great artist must have designed her, for beauty is revealed in every feature. in the folds of her garments but especially in her lovely smile. "We brought the figure, known now to the crew as "the mystery lady" home here where the town gave her a royal welcome. For many years she has been like a part of myown familyf' The old man's voicetrailed into silence and he seemed to have finished his tale. But he was not to be allowed to do so before the stirring conclusion on the story which the children knew as well. as he did. UGO on, grand-fatherf' urged Margaret, "tell us of the lovely lady who fainted on your doorstep." 'iYes, it is not so many years ago, al- though some time before either of you were born, that one spring day, the door bell rang violently, and when I answered it I 6
