KEITH JUNIOR HIGH DSK 3 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. Edward Gilmore, 9 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 MAY DAY 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.

TRAFFIC SQUAD VISITS CAPITAL On April 27, 28, and 29 members of the students traliic squads of the city visited Washington where they took part in a mammoth parade. The Blair County Motor Club sponsors this annual trip for the boys who direct traffic and guard the school children throughout the county. James Graham, Ralph Rudy, and Donald Nelson, members of the Keith traffic squad, left with Mr. Horton on Friday by automobile and bus and arrived at six-thirty P. M. at Potomac Park, Washington, D. C. The boys with their escorts visited the Congressional Library on Friday evening. Saturday they participated in a parade which was led by the United States Navy Band. Saturday afternoon the group visited the Smithsonian Institute, the new National Museum, and the Washing- ton Monument. In the evening they enjoyed a party at the Fox Theatre. The tour also included trips to the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, the Lee Mansion, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the Zoological Gardens. GIRL RESERVE WELFARE WORK This body of girls in our school has been doing very commendable work. During the past year the girls sold candy to secure money for the welfare work they carry on. They sold candy at both the football and basketball games. After obtaining the money they deposited it in the bank. The girls under the direction of Miss Fetterly and Miss Wilson have success- fully completed a year of hard work to secure their welfare funds. Violet Ross, 9 September 7-School opened.

To view a school of then and now would be to see greatly contrasting scenes. 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 year. 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. FAREWELL 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. 'NUFF SED Look closely, dear children, for this will be the last of our columns for you to see. lk if 'lf 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 l K 8 Oh well! We can take it.

4 KEITH JUNIOR HIGH DSK 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 participants. The meeting was adjourned at 4:00 o'cloek. Dorothy Gorman, 9 STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN WELFARE PARADE 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 cause. Catherine Crawford, 9 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" SETTINGS 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 School. 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 Pantomime. 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. Sidney Friedman, 9 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: Medicine-Dr. Thomas. Law-Mr. Sheeline. Art-Mr. Smay. Teaching-Supt. Laramy. Nursing-Miss Patterson. Architecture-Mr. Royer. Aviation-Mr. Hite. Music-Mr. Lindaman. Engineering--Mr. Haghurd. Farming-Mr. Hamil. Business-Mr. Hoover. g Forestry-Mr. Brennecke. 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 talks. Betty McNaughton, 9 HONOR ROLL FIFTH MARKING Pmuou g Room llll V Room 201 Room 204 .
