KEITH JUNIOR HIGH DSK
Hi-Lights of 1933-1935 At Keith
NEW UNIFORMS ORDERED
FOR KEITH BAND
May 2, 1934 turned out to be a great
day for Keith, as it marked the signing
of a contract for new uniforms for our
band. After four years of envious waiting
Keith hopes to send the band gaily
attired in green and white uniforms to
head the victorious march at the Roose-
velt-Keith football game.
The contract has been given to the
firm of Leopold and Bigley. They have
promised to use a beautiful shade of
green whipcord. The trousers, vest, and
cape are green. The vest is military and
trimmed with white braid. The capes
are lined with white. The entire uniform
is enhanced by a green military cap
finished with a white cord.
Just watch our boys step out. It will
be a sight to even gladden the heart of
"Old Ireland" herself.

W. C. T. U. ESSAYS
Every year there is an essay contest
sponsored by the Women's Christian
Temperance Union. The seventh, eighth
and ninth grade students throughout the
city participate. This year the title of
the essay was "Should an Automobile
Driver Drink Beer?"
Everyone is eagerly looking forward to
the results of this contest which could
portray splendid ideals of temperance.
The rewards are certainly worth trying
for and in the near future we shall see
in chapel who this year's winners are.
Betty Stevens, 9
The annual May Day was celebrated
on May 9, at Mansion Park, where more
than 5,000 spectators viewed the drills,
relays, and various athletic events pre-
sented by students representatives from
every city school.
Over three hundred participated in
the sports alone. The first event was
called at 1:30 o'clock.
Following the relays by the A. H. S.
varsity track squad, 'was a drill by the
bands of the three high schools.
Next came the May Day calisthenics
program. Keith girls beat Roosevelt
girls in a dodgeball game, but lost to the
Blue and White's mushball team. More
races and relays followed, and the 440
relay for junior high boys concluded one
of our finest May Day programs.

This year the one-hundredth anni-
versary of free education is being cele-
brated throughout our State. These
hundred years have been a century of
progress. To view a school of then and
now would be to see greatly contrasting
The early school houses were crude,
uncomfortable, poorly heated and lighted.
They were very different from the modern
schools with their up-to-date equipment
including gymnasiums, libraries, and
cafeterias. The teachers were barely
removed from illiteracy, and school was
attended only two or three months in a
Much opposition rose against free edu-
cation. Religious denominations were of
the opinion that education should be
closely tied up with religious instructions.
Others argued that education for the
masses was dangerous.
Hope for the new order seemed lost
when Thaddeus Stevens, rising in defense
of his cherished ideas, turned the tide,
and free education was saved.
It took a great many years to bring
us a fully equipped school such as our
own Keith Junior High School, but we
who are leaving it now, after three happy
years of enjoying its many advantages,
are grateful to those who, years ago,
helped to pave the way.
The end has come to this, as it must to
all things, for only through endings are
new beginnings made possible. It is the
fate of man that he can never rest. It is
the fate of life that it must ever change.
But as the dropping leaves of Autumn
give to us the promise of the new awaken-
ing, so the closing leaves of text books
give the certainty of new advancement.
The close, or what we call the close, is
therefore not the end at all, but merely
a transition, a gateway to more and higher
knowledge. But yet when endings come,
who can think about beginnings? At
times like this, transitions matter little.
Gateways lead from daylight into dark-
ness. It matters only that a change is
made and there is something sad about a
change. Yet one must always change,
and always with the secret fear that the
old was somehow better.
Each thing gained has brought its cost
of something lost, and with each bit of
knowledge comes the more acute proxim-
ity of change. And there is something
sad about a change.
It is at once the greatest tragedy of
change-and yet, the greatest blessing-
that it cannot quite erase its memories.
So let it be with us as we leave here.
The only promise that we dare make to
you is this:
No matter where the fates decree that
we shall go when we leave here, to that
place, too, shall go the memory of you
and all you mean to us.
What's more to say? Farewell.
Andrew Ritter, 9
OFF FOR VACATION
What are you going to do this summer?
Right now those long lazy days of
summer stretch out endlessly in our
anticipation. But we know from experi-
ence how quickly they pass and how soon
September comes to call us back to the
duties and pleasures of school.
We leave now, to go our separate ways.
Some will enjoy trips to far places, some
will find at home the many things there
are to do on summer days when one has
lots of leisure time. '
We say goodbye to you now, until
Autumn again brings us all together to
miss the old faces and welcome the new.
Look closely, dear children, for this
will be the last of our columns for you

We don't feel a bit funny. Somehow
we thought we'd be all elated when we
finished Junior High School. But this
business of leaving isn't as joyful as we
expected. No sirl

So you don't think this was funny?

BLAIR COUNTY P.T.A. MEETS
Saturday, April the twenty-second, the
Blair County Parent-Teachers Association
met at D. S. Keith. The morning session
began at 9:30 o'cIock and was in charge of
Mrs. W. K. Stultz. The devotions were
led by Rev. Harrity, and the assembly
joined in singing several numbers. Greet-
ings were extended, and the remainder of
the program consisted of discussions and
reports. Themeeting was adjourned at
12:30 for luncheon which was served in
the Keith cafeteria.
The afternoon session began at 1:30
with Superintendent R. E. Laramy pre-
siding. The combined Parent-Teachers
chorus was presented under the direc-
tion of H. W. Lindaman. Following this,
there was a discussion and then the
Martinsburg Mothers Singers entertained
with two numbers. After another dis-
cussion, the convention became a ques-
tion box. Parents and teachers were
privileged to ask questions and they were
discussed and answered by volunteer
The meeting was adjourned at 4:00

STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN
On April 24 seventy-five Keith students
participated in a parade organized to
raise funds for medical attention for
children whose parents can not afford
it. This welfare work is sponsored by the
Blair County Poor Board. '
There are approximately one thousand
boys and girls in this city who need
glasses but whose parents cannot afford
to get them. Their affliction, which in
some cases might lead to blindness, will
now be taken care of by the fund.
Keith Junior High School feels it an
honor to lend its aid to such a worthy

ADJUTANT RALPH MILLER
ADDRESSES KEITH ASSEMBLY
On Friday, March 20, 1934, the pupils
of D. S. Keith were entertained by
Adjutant Ralph Miller, the Division
Secretary .of the Salvation Army. His
topic of discussion was "Character."
His talk was so witty and clever that
it made excellent entertainment. Some of
the facts he mentioned were educational
as well as witty. He stressed especially
his point that the youth of today should
read worthwhile books, rather than some
of the modern worthless literature.
Dorothy Faris, 9
STUDENTS MAKE "VARIETIES"
The sets which added greatly to the
beauty of the "Varieties of 1934" were
made and painted by the members of
Mr. Smay's and Mr. Horton's craft
clubs and a selected group of two hundred
art students. The scenes were made and
painted in the Craft Shop of the Keith
The scenes included: The Hungarian
arch overlooking a lake, the Venetian
scene viewing St. Mark's and the Ducal
Palace, the modern Manhattan scene,
the Garden scene from the Blue Danube,
the ragged and the satin slipper from the
The stage sets are: the eagle shown with
the Russian chorus, the horse and dogs
from the hunting chorus, the jewel cas-
ket, and the bows and arrows.
The gauze scene from the Blue Danube
was so large it was necessary to be made
in the boiler room. The gauze was
painted by a selected group of art students.

VOCATIONAL TALKS GIVEN T0
THE N INTH GRADE
During the school year ninth grade
students indicated by questionnaires their
choice of professional vocational courses
to be taken in high school. These were
tabulated and for the past few weeks,
talks have been given to ninth grade
students concerning their respective voca-
tions or professions.
Some of the talks given so far are:
Business-Mr. Hoover. g
Much interest has been shown in these
meetings, and our boys and girls have
received valuable instruction in prepara-
tion for their high school courses. The
school is grateful to those who gave these
