Mary, the daughter of Jacob Murry, lived in Thortonville, a small town in New York State. Her mother died when she was born and she had lived with her father in a small house in that town ever since. At the time this story opened Mary was a girl of 18 years of age. She was to graduate that spring in the high school at Thortonville. She had worked hard to go to school, because they were poor and her father had to work every day, so as to get enough money to let her go to school and to keep the two in clothes and enough to eat. The time was drawing near for Mary to graduate. When she thought it over, (she was worried because she didn't have any new dress and she knew her father couldn’t afford to buy her any. The following weeks that Mary went to school were sad ones for her. She heard all the other girls talking about the dresses they were going to buy. Some were going to get crepe de chines, some Georgette, some satins and many other kinds. Mary knew she couldn’t afford to get any of these. She did not want to go in her last summer’s dress, which was white lawn, because it had been washed many times and was hardly fit to wear to a commencement. When Mary had first started in at high school she met a boy who was in her class whose name was Jack Tal-madge. He was a very rich boy and all the girls were crazy over him. He was polite and manly and liked all the girls, but as soon as he had seen Mary with her dark brown curls and blue eyes he decided that he liked her best of all. As the time was drawing near commencement time Jack saw that something was troubling Mary. So the night [ before commencement he asked her if he could take her home the next night. She hesitated, but finally said “No,” because she told him she was not coming. He asked her why, but she only said she didn’t want to go. But Jack guessed what was keeping her away from it. Jack’s sister Isabelle, a girl the same | age as Mary, had died the summer before. She had been invited to a party and had bought a new party dress of 1 pink crepe de chine. She never wore the dress because before the party came she took diphtheria and died. No one had seen the dress but the Talmadge family, so Jack decided to ask hi'i mother if he could have the dress to I give to Mary. Mrs. Talmadge was a 1 kind-hearted motherly woman. She did not like to part with her daughter’s dress, but as she knew that it would make Mary happy, she told Jack he could have it. That same night Jack found a box and put the dress in it and took it to Mary’s house. He put it on the porch and then knocked on the door and hid behind a lilac bush. Mary came to the door, but only saw a large white box on the porch. She took it into the house and opened it. There was a note inside of it which read: “Please accept this gift from a friend who will never tell from whom it was sent.” Mary was delighted and after consulting her father she decided to Tceep it. She went to the commencement the next night and Jack took her home. In after years when she graduated from college she wore the pretty pink dress. I although she never knew from where I it came. •D.H.S.-1G THE CUCKOO (Emtrmunn (boats “We shall now,” she said, “have a reg- i ular supply of cheese.” “Has Biggs got it at last?” I asked in amazement. Biggs is our grocer; that is to say, he is the man who always has what we don’t want. “We shall be independent of Biggs,” she assured me. “I am going to make our own cheese from goat’s milk.” “Where are you going to get the milk ?” “From our goat, of course.” “But—” I commenced feebly. She waved me to silence. “Oh, yes; we have!” she said. “I bought it this morning and it’s coming tomorrow. I felt I must do some war work” “Where are you going to keep it?” I ventured to ask. “In the garden, of course, stupid,” she said. “I strolled to the window and surveyed the proposed home of the goat. I had seen the garden before; but it was easily forgotten. Knowing nothing of goats, I could not say definitely that it would be satisfied. The lawn was smooth, and plainly visible to anyone not standing upon it. The flowers, too. were nice; there seemed to be one of each, and a fern. “You see,” she said; “we shall just tie it to the tree, and—and that’s all.” “But do you know how to make cheese?” I inquired. She waved a slim volume at me. “I have learned this by heart,” she said. “It tells you everything.” As I handed back the book there came a rattle and a thump at the door. Impulsively she ran to open it. “The cheesemaking outfit I ordered,” she explained. On the step I saw what appeared to be a staggering mass of earthen and enamel ware of all shapes and sizes. By dint of hard staring I made out the cap and boots of the boy behind it. When he handed me the bill I stared harder still. She cooed gently of unlimited cheese, while I paid the bill. When I reached home the next day the goat was in full possession of the garden, but showed no signs of being unduly puffed up about it. It sat by the tree to which it was tied, gazing at the lawn and giving vent to an occasional laugh. It was a sardonic-looking animal. and its name was Juliet. “Have you milked it?” I asked. ------♦D. Her reply was vague. “I don’t think it’s been used to a woman’s milking it. so I left it for you,” she said. “I’ve got everything ready for the cheese, and here is a milking pail.” I sought out Juliet, who rose and bowed. I came closer and she bowed lower still. I thought her a polite goat. Then I put my hand upon her and my idea of her manners changed. She came forward somewhat abruptly, and. fearing to startle her, I stepped backward ; she did likewise, and I advanced again. We repeated the movement. “What’s it to be—a waltz or a polka?” said my neighbor’s voice from across the fence. Juliet laughed outright. But she was a goat with decided view, and she assured me by the variety of means at her command that I did not fall in with her idea of Romeo. I returned to the house to find her waiting among the cheese outfit. It took up most of the kitchen. She held out eager hands for the pail. I explained the situation. “She is not used to us yet,” I said, “and I thought that it would be unkind to milk her by force.” The next morning we awoke to find that Juliet had broken loose. However, she was still there, and so was the garden, only most of it seemed to have gotten into the goat. I retethered the cheese-provider and during the next few days Juliet and I had several interviews, but we seemed fated to remain strangers. Juliet knew an infinite variety of steps, and my neighbor—who alone seemed to derive any pleasure from the interviews—said she ought to be a ballet goat. On the evening of the third day she remembered Jones, who is great on goats; in fact, he has recently written a popular pamphlet on them for distribution by some department or other. I hunted up Jones, who strolled ba k with me while I explained the situation “Goat, eh?” he said. “Good investment nowadays. The milk makes fine cheese.” I took him into the remains of the garden and introduced him to Juliet, who received him with signs of respect. “Now,” I said, “tell me if there is any reason why I shouldn’t milk that goat.” Jones looked at the goat and then at me. “None whatever.” he said “except, of course, that it’s a he-goat.” f.S.- -----THE CUCKOO 17 fftarjurfe'a GDriginality Mary Bane, ’20. Marjorie Carter was disgusted with everything and everybody. She was tired of being only one-third of a girl, and being dressed like her other two sisters, even to the color of the shoes. Her mother was a very kind woman, and she took pride in dressing her three daughters alike, because they were triplets and looked so much like each other. Marjorie liked to be different, and even when she was small she declared she hated to see her image every time she turned around. She got along fairly well until she started to high school Then her patience was tried every day. because she was taken for her other sisters and had to take all the punishment for the whole three, although she was the quiet one and the other two were very mischievous. But she kept striving on through all the torments and punishments which her two sisters should have received, and the end of the fourth year found her salutatorian of her class. One evening about the middle of April, when she came home from school, she found a letter from her Aunt Tabitha, who lived in California, saying that she would send each of the three girls a graduation dress. This gave Mar jorie much pleasure, for she thought to herself that for once she would not have to wear a dress like her two sisters, for Aunt Tabitha would hardly think it nec-esssary to get all three dresses alike. For the next three weeks Marjorie enjoyed life and anxiously waited for the dresses to arrive. A few days before the dresses came she received a letter saying that their aunt was coming to see them graduate, and she had decided to take one of the girls back home to live with her. Of course, each one started to gather her things together, to try and look her best, and Marjorie looked eagerly forward to seeing her dress. At last they came; but, oh 1 what a disappointment for Marjorie, for there in the box lay three white ruffled organdie dresses, as pretty as a picture, but all three alike. She was so disappointed that she could not eat any supper, and went up to her room to study without her usual cheery word for the family. But although Marjorie tried hard to study, she could not concentrate her mind; and at last, closing her books, gave herself over to thought. She sat thinking for over an hour. Then, suddenly jumping up, she exclaimed: “I’ll do it; that’s just the idea. But there’s no time to lose.” Then she went downstairs and played the piano as loudly as she could until bedtime. The following weeks were busy ones 11 the Carter home, and no one noticed that Marjorie was seldom around. At last commencement day arrived and everything was bustle and hurry The girls’ dresses were laid side by side on the bed in their room. When it came time to dress. Aunt Tabitha, who had arrived the day' before, said she would help them. And Marjorie asked if she might go to the spare room to dress. Her request was granted and, gather ing up her belongings, she ran to the room. She dressed so quickly that she was ready before the rest and was waiting quietly in the hall, with her coat on when they came down. At last the exercises had begun and it was Marjorie’s turn to appear. And she wondered what her mother and aunt would say when they saw her, and if Aunt Tabitha would be very cross. Fot she did not have the white dress on, but a very' pale pink, so pink that it looked white, of some fine, silky-looking material. It was trimmed with ruffles and she looked very pretty as she stood on the platform. But her mother was astonished and declared it was not Marjorie, while her aunt only smiled. Somehow she finished and retreated, feeling that she would never see California. When the commencement exercises were over and the family were going home not a word was said concerning her dress. But when she reached home and removed her coat her mother demanded an explanation. Then she told her mother how tired she was of being only a third of a girl, and how she thought one evening of a plan for being dressed differently for once in her life, if never again. She said she happened to think of that piece of goods, which her mother had used in making the lining of a new silk quilt about a month before. It was not very suitable for this, but as there was not enough material to make three dresses. she had decided to use it for this until some time when she got something Continued on page 3518 THE CUCKOO filter! £ txtmi Mary Sener, She was a young girl of the ’teen age, living in Bridgeton, N. J. She had blue eyes, fringed with long lashes, and as merry and twinkling as the stars on a very dark night. Her hair was yellow and hung in long curls down her back. But all this is not as important as her name, which was Marjory Lee Brown. At this age you know it’s most exasperating when you put your hair up and lengthen your skirts, to hear someone say: “Hello, kid! Come out and play ball.’’ And something inside of you makes you want to go; but then you suddenly remember you’re 'sixteen,’ a young lady now, not a tomboy. If you want to gain the boys’ respect you must refuse. Marjory had a twin brother, Tom, who was as much a favorite with the girls as Marjory was with the boys Torn went to many parties, and always took Marjory with him. However, the seldom returned together. Tom always accompanied some other girl home, while Marjory was escorted home by one of her many gentlemen admirers, but more often by Jack Riggs. Now, Jack was Marjory’s beau, and a very nice one at that. One of those slow and easy ones, but, nevertheless very faithful and loving. He bought her books and flowers, and never forgot to remind her of her birthday with some little remembrance. But, like all lovers, they had a quarrel Jack went to a party to which Marjory was not asked, and took another girl home. Marjory thought it mean of Jack to go when she was not asked; but why shouldn’t he have a good time? She refused to see or have anything to do with him for a month, which nearly broke his heart, and Marjory’s, too. She said he ’22. should be the first to speak; but finally Marjory’s mother showed her that she was in the wrong, and the quarrel was soon patched up. The next year Tom and Marjory finished high school and looked forward to going away to school together. But autumn found Tom with a scholarship at Yale, and Marjory attending Bucknell. Now, Jack Briggs also graduated from high school with Tom and Marjory, but he started in business for himself, that he might be ready for Marjory when she came out of college. It happened that Marjory’s roommate at college was a girlhood friend of Jack’s, and she could not say enough about him. All this tended to make Marjory jealous, although her roommate declared they were only friends. One day Tom came to visit Marjory, but found she was out of her room. In the meantime he was well entertained by Bessie Jones, Marjory’s roommate, and found her to be a pleasing companion. When Marjory returned she introduced her brother to Miss Jones, which wfas hardly necessary, for they had already introduced themselves, and Tom was very much smitten with Bessie. After this memorable visit to Bucknell. Tom, accompanied by Jack Briggs, often turned their footsteps in this direction. They were invited and went to all the dances and social events of the i school. School was to close the 29th of May. and commencement followed shortly. They decided that June 20 would be a nice time for a double wedding, after which Marjory would be Mrs. Jack Briggs, of Bridgeport, N. J., and Bessie would be Mrs. Thomas Brown, of the same place. ■D.H.S.. (§ur Fmtr Ifrara Leona M. Lightcap, ’20. I remember, very clearly. When we entered our old high How the other classes giggled. And we sat and looked on shy. But that was the first day only. Bolder and more fresh we grew. When the Sophomore class we entered Less foolish tricks we’d do. Then the third year, we were Juniors, (Most of us, I mean to say) Then we acted more like students And proud we grew each day.

I know a preacher’s daughter Who hates to go out in the rain. But just as love will have it. She will go anywhere with Cain. Edith’s thoughts are in the South, Where the sun with all its luster Shines on a bright young laddie Whose name is Hallan Usher. John Powell’s a sturdy lad, Who would wander from land to land Just to get in Dorothea’s sight And hold her willing hand. While speaking about Dot Moore, Her face, always garlanded with mirth, Looks up into Johnnie’s face, Says: “You’re the only one on earth.” Clara is always laughing, Who in play is sometimes scrappy. Why ever should she worry, As for that, she’s always happy. Pauline is our chief giggler. Who giggles all the time. Throughout the corridors at school Those giggles ever chime. Olive’s always studious. Who lingers in the church lobby. She'd give up any other thing To get in touch with Dolby. Arundel is very anxiously Waiting for school to expire. That she may never work again Is her only one desire. The brightest one in our class Is Mary Eppehimer. The way that she has studied Has made her an oldtimer.

Sener, ’22. When Washington was a boy He liked all boyish fun, He was good at riding horseback And better still with a gun. He was noted for his honesty And indeed the stories tell, Of that episode on horseback Which every child knows well. How before he'd eaten breakfast, He took his mother’s horse Which, while struggling to unseat him, Died, before it had run the course. His mother was heart broken, For the horse was one worthy of pride But she said. “I’d rather you told me about it, Than someone else to say that you lied.” The legend of the cherry tree, Which we have heard before, Is a symbol of his truthfulness, But stands for nothing more. As a soldier in the army His courage was unsurpassed, When others were forced to leave the field He was among the last. And so he went on through life, Until made commander-in-chief, He gave the colonies liberty And put them on their feet. When this great deed was accomplished And we needed a helping hand, He was again pressed into service And was proclaimed President o’er the land. After this, his greatest triumph. He returned to his home to dwell. And at his death all people grieved. For he had served his country well. D.H.S.- dibit Last night we lay a-dreamin’. We dreamed a dream so fair; We sat in Biles' studio, Before the camera there. We heard a man’s voice sayin’, In tones so sweet and smooth, These vain attempts to make us seem beautiful, forsooth: “Now, miss, just make yourself comfortable. The picture must he natural, don’t you know. Now! Just lean forward a little—sit farther on the edge of the chair, please. Now, raise the left eyebrow a wee bit—oh. miss, the right ear is showing! There—just point QJbat the nose a little more toward the ceiling—yes, that gives one an angelic mien Do you know, you have just the type of face we photographers delight to focus on. Now, droop the right shoulder to the left, please, and place the forefinger upon the right cheek—that gives a touch of coyness. There! School’s out. Yes, you can get them on Thursday.” And, now, the scene was changed, The sweet, low voice had ceased; We stood with proofs within our hands. And, heavens!—don’t tell us we look like that!!!The Cuckoo Vol. II Dovvningtown, Pa.. June, 1920 No. 3 MARGARET M. BRAY, '20, Editor in-Chief KATHRYN B. HESS. '20, It,- ,, OLIVE MILLER.

AU REV0IR Another year has passed and the time has come to make a survey as it were of our past years work. The first question that comes before our minds is, “Have our efforts been rewarded; was the year a successful one?” Before answering, let us stop to consider in what ways we have succeeded and failed. It was our hope to be able to put forth four issues yearly instead of three. Every thing seemed to tend toward this aim until it came time for our second issue. Due to illness on the part of some of the members of the staff and chiefly the printer our second number came out almost a month late, so in this way we failed. The size of our paper was not as large as we would have liked to have it. In reference to this I will refrain from using that old excuse, “Good goods come in small quantities.” I will simply say, we cannot publish material that we do not have. Stop and think if you have done your part and handed in an article when you were asked to do so. But after the rain, the sun shines again, so let us turn to the bright side. On the the word of our readers received through exchange and local opinion, the Cuckoo is a paper we need not be ashamed of. If it has not surpassed last years record it has at least come up to it. In two ways we have advanced further along the line to perfection. We have added an Art Editor to our staff, enabling us to print a few cuts. And second we have made the final issue a purely Senior number. So looking back we can justly say. “Our efforts were not in vain, and our year taken as a whole has been a successful one.” The staff wishes to share this success with its readers and to thank the people of the town, the faculty, the students and anyone who has helped in any way to make the Cuckoo a success. If you took an ad, handed in an article, bought or sold a copy, you helped. We thank you again and ask you to support the Cuckoo in years to come as well as you have done in the past. ------♦D.H.S.- ------- HAPPINESS Happiness is a quality imagined by many but possessed by few. True it takes imagination but it must be accompanied by that liberalism of characteristic which gives the personality its natural coloring. Keep your Blue Bird in sight, when that small mascot escapes from your vision then you are in utter discontent. Do not hesitate to help others, it will lead you on in the right direction. At life’s intermission line up your misfortunes against happiness—the sight is marvelous for the latter acts as a solvent of the former. -----♦D.H.S.- ------22 THE CUCKOO The students sadly missed two of their teachers, Mr. Taylor, who was home ill with the mumps, and Miss Hensor, who was also ill. We were glad to see them once more on Monday, May 3 On Friday morning, May 7, the High School was favored by a number of selections given by Mr. Johnson, a pupil of Professor Lenard. It is hoped that we may hear from him again in the future. Time is flying and the High School is a center of action. Every one is doing their utmost to complete the year in one grand finale. Teachers are hand ing in reports and making out examinations. Pupils are studying as never before in order to pass those finals they all love so well. Everything is crowded into the eleventh hour. Because of the large amount of work on hand the Downing Wills Literary Society held their last meeting for the year. On Tuesday morning, Mav 11, the Juniors held their class day. The girls came to school dressed as little children, with their hair in ribbons and pinafores, while the boys wore overalls. Friday evening, May 14, tbe Juniors gave the Seniors a reception. After a banquet served bv the ladies of the Lutheran Church, the following program was rendered: Vocal Duet, Pearle Chamberlin and Glady s Crisman Recitation .............Gladys Crisman Male Trio, Charles Pollock, Elmer Schrump and Willard Rindlarb play—“Too Much of a Good Thing” Characters: Virginia Clark William Perry Catherine Deets Elmer Schrumpf Evelyn McKinney Isadore Bloom Pearle Chamberlin Esther Eppehimer Grace Ranck —♦D.H.S.- -— May 24, the Seniors leave on their trip to Washington.

JOhNNY 24 THE CUCKOO EIGHTH Class Limerick, There was a young fellow named Bayard, Who went to his job feeling tired. He waited for Carp, But his Foreman was Sharp And the next day he got fired. Another brave student named Caum, Once found a big Bolshevik bomb. He received such a scare, He jumped high in the air. And he started right home to his “mom.” Carl Smith was a fellow quite rash. Who always went of? in a dash. He was so fond of trees, That whenever he’d please, He’d go out to look for an Ash. A stylish young dandy named Broadt, Saved up all the notes the girls wrote. He said, “Some fine day From the platform I’ll sway And surely give women the vote.” Said George Kacy, “It’s all to the good,” As he went for a walk in the wood. " 7'wecdle-dee, T weed le-dum Here’s some double-mint gum.” And soon he was chewing his cud. Our class has plenty of fats, Who never go without hats. There’s Warren, Irene, And John, too, you’ve seen Who have plenty to cover their slats. —►D.H.S.- — The Eighth Grade, which will be our I Iigh School Class for 1924. now number forty pupils. The majority will enter our High School. Some will move away during the summer, and enter other schools. We are sorry to lose our classmates. Our class has shown a good class GRADE y Emily Mercer. spirit and has given money freely when asked for contributions for different enterprises. —• •!).H.s. « — For the art evhibition in February we sold 101 tickets and handed $25.25 to the Entertainment Committee. As our prize, we received Anton Mauve’s “Autumn.” This picture now adorns our schoolroom. When the “Wishing Ring” was given in Downingtown. our class sold $21 worth of tickets. During the entire year the class raised money and purchased a fine clock, which we donated to the school. The Grammar School Advancement Exercises will be given Friday night, June 4, in the Auditorium. It is the fifth year for these exercises. An interesting program is being prepared. The class will dramatize “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” The principal characters are (.1) Ichabod Crane—Leonard Caum; (2) Katrina Van Tassel—Gladys Sharp; (3) Brom Bones—Maurice Broadt; (4) Hans Van Ripper—Bayard Hoffman; (5) Herr Van Tassel—John Kerr; (6) Mrs. Van Tassel—Marian T weed. Several interesting musical numbers will be rendered under Miss Cover’s direction. Teacher—“Warren, give a description of Brom Bones.” Warren—“He rode a horse with the devil in him.” George Foreman—“Daddy, give me a nickel.” Mr. Foreman—“Why, George, you’re too big to he begging for a nickel.” George—“1 guess you are right. Dad.

Harlan! And you told me I was the first.” “Pete” Ax: (Three years from now) “What, you don’t like these biscuits? Why I made them out of a cook hook.” Hathaway: "Oh, I’m not contradicting you. This one tastes as if it were made from the cover.” Harry Haines: (in French class) j “The more I study these verbs, the less I know.” Miss Lattelle: “Evidently you must’ve j studied very hard last evening.” “Kay”: “Did you notice that young j man sitting near us in the Opera House last evening?” “Dot”: “That good-looking curly- headed chap with a gold tooth in the ; back of his mouth, who wore a brown suit and a knitted tie. No; why?” (Surely nobody can say that “Dot” hasn’t an eye for details.) Leona Lightcap became so shy at the Alumni Banquet that once she was j found even trying to hide under the i table. Fortunately she was discovered in time so that her mad plan for concealment was never carried out. Miss Philips: (in Senior History) | “Speaking of dog licenses, what other kinds of licenses are there?” Margaretta Mahan: “Marriage li- cense !” (Ten minutes later Margaretta asked how one goes about obtaining a mar- j riage license. That looks as if she meant business. Look out, boys; this is Leap ! Year.) Johnny Francella is so fond of ani- j mals that he carries birds and turtles | around promiscuously in his pockets. Mr. Moyer: (colliding with Dorothy in the hall) “Did I hurt you, Miss Moore ?” “Dot”: “No. Mr. Moyer.” Mr. Moyer: “I’m so sorry.’ (What did he mean?) Anna Wharry: (Talking about Bas- ketball) “Don’t you think ‘Lovie’s’ fast? She catches nearly every ball which comes her way.” Grayson: “Oh, Love’s fast enough to catch anything.” NOTES Clara Snyder: (gloomily) “Do we end today’s lesson with ‘Carbolic Acid’.- ” Mr. Taylor: “Well, Clara, that is a good antidote for gloom.” Johnny Francella: (in Phoenixville restaurant) “I thought you called this ‘spaghetti soup,’ but I fail to see any spaghetti.” Waiter: “Well, over there’s a man who’s ordered ‘cottage pudding,’ but you don’t expect us to serve a cottage with it, do you?” (This retort so dumbfounded Johnny that he actually kept quiet for five minutes.) Harry Haines: (after someone had made a suggestion in class meeting) “That’s what I thought, but I couldn’t think of it.” “Peg” Bray: (in music class) “I’ve often heard a serenade, but never under my window.” Johnny Francella: “Huh! I get serenade under my window every night— by cats.” For a long time we have wondered what causes Margaretta’s typewriter to do such queer stunts. By dint of much perseverance and watchfulness on the part of our “detectives” the dark secret has been discovered: “She feeds it wood alcohol!” JUNIORS Carroll: “Do you believe Shakespeare wrote all those plays lie’s supposed to have written?” Grayson: “I don’t know; I never thought about it, but when I die. if I’m fortunate to go to Heaven. I’ll ask him.” Carrol: “Suppose he’s not there, then what ?” Grayson: “Oh. well, then you ask him.” Certain Juniors were so affected by seeing “The Prince of Tin-Pan Alley” that afterwards they had to take a “prince” of a joy-ride in a “Tin-Liz.” It’s a fortunate thing the “movie” wasn’t called “Ten Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” else these Juniors might’ve been inspired to go diving in the Brandywine. “Is your watch going, Charles?” asked Esther sweetly, as she stifled a yawn. “Yep,” answered Charles. “How soon?” Harlan Sharp: “An alliance is an agreement between two persons for26 THE CUCKOO some purpose. They promise something, too.” Miss Philips: “Aren’t you thinking of matrimonial alliances ?” Harlan: (surprised) “Why, of course; what other kind would 1 be talking about ?” Gilbert Haran must be in love, as he’s wearing his hair parted in the middle. Who is she, Gilbert? Virginia Clark: “Banana skins lying on the sidewalks cause many accidents.' (Was she speaking from experiencet) Willard and Elmer may have their faults, but they sure are wizards when it comes to getting cars out of ditches. Ask Esther and Pearl—they know. Miss Lattelle: (in French class) “Is ‘chicken’ masculine or feminine?” Grayson: “Well, I know lots of feminine ‘chickens’.” Grayson Johnson: (in clothing store) “I’d like to see a pair of trousers to fit me.” Clerk: “So would I.” “Simple Simon” has been looking down-hearted lately. Many people are wondering if “Marjorie Daw” has been maltreating him. Miss Latelle: “Are you thinking?” Carroll: “Sure.” Miss Latelle: (from force of habit) “I can’t hear you.” Our “donkey,” Geraldine, has taken another step toward civilization. The other day “it” made “its” appearance in class adorned with flaxen curls and bonny red ribbon. We grieve to say that Geraldine still has a “horse” voice, but we live in hopes that this defect will come right in the future. John Cahill: “Am I familiar with classics? Well, if you could see the way I pitch them around in my desk you wouldn’t ask such a question.” Emma Boyce: “I wonder why men lie so ?” Francis Tweed: “Because women are so inquisitive.” Charles Hertle: “How would I write my name if I were divorced?” Miss Lattelle: “Why, Charles, you’d go back to your maiden name.” Miriam Weimers shows promise of being a great musician, especially as a violinist, as she likes to “bow some” (Bowsum) already. —••D.H.S.1 — SOPHOMORES Emma Boyce: “Cooksie, you should be able to see through your father.” Alice Cook: “Why?” Emma: “He’s transparent." Alice: “You’re simple.” Emma: “Isn’t he ever cross?” r lice: “Yes, but what are you driving at ?” Emma: “Well, ‘traits’ means cross, and her’s your parent; so he must be ‘transparent’.” (My, how those Latin fledglings love to flaunt their knowledge.) Miss Lattelle: (,in English class) “What’s a homonym of ‘hue’?” Charles Pollock: “Isn’t there one meaning a young goat—or something.?” Miss Latelle: “No, Charles; that’s ‘ewe’ (you).” Alice Dolan: “I wonder where all the pins go; there’s never any here.” Paul Snyder: “I can’t keep track of them either. They’re always pointed one way and headed another.” Mr. Taylor: (to Emma Boyce, who was talking at a great rate) “Why don’t you take violin lessons?” Emma: “Why?” Mr. Taylor: “It would give your chin a rest.” Miss Lattelle: “Has anyone noticed the awkward grammar on that signboard near the bridge?” Charles Pollock: “I don’t go home that way.” Miss Lattelle: “Haven’t you ever passed that signboard?” (P. S. Why did both Esther and Charles blush adorably?) —•••D.H.S.- - - “FRESHIES” Alton C: “Everyone says I have eyes like my father.” Beauford: “Yes; you’re ‘pop’-eyed.” Bill McFarlan: “Where’d you get that blue ribbon?” Clifton W.: “I went to a dog show, and a lady pinned it on me.” Mrs. Mitchell: “Why are you writing so fast?” Wesley Shubert: “I’ve gotta hurry; the ink might get all.” Miss Lattelle: “Give the word “detail” in a sentence.” Eearl Sullivan: “I hit the dog on detail.” Joe Huggins: “I see they’re having terrible floods in France.” Marian M.: “Impossible!” Joe: “Why impossible? Everything’s possible these days.” Marian: “Because in France the water is always Teau’ (low).” Paul Ezrah might not like cigars, but he sure does like “Ash-es.”THE CUCKOO 27 Louis Black: “What kind of a dog’s that?” Floyd Crisman: “That’s a Victory Houud.” Louis: “What’s the big idea?” Floyd: “Notice his bobbed tail?” Louis: “Uh huh.” Floyd: “Well, that dog gave until it Miss Philips: “America was discovered over 400 years ago.” Louis Black: (admiringly) “Gee, but you’ve got a great memory!” “What’s wrong with Ezrah’s head?” !‘Oh, he and Walt Townsley were trying to see who could lean farthest out the window and Ezrah won.” A terrific noise was heard in the library recently, but on investigation no reason for alarm was found, as it was caused by Louis Laird’s falling asleep. A soliloquy by Paul Ezrah: “1 wonder if Rome was burned with fire.” Several of the Freshmen boys treasure a lock of curly hair among their possessions. Probably this accounts for the disappearance of a bit of Helen Love’s tresses. Mrs. Mitchell: “Beauford, if you want to talk, keep quiet!” Miss Lattelle: “It seems as if some of you people can’t read except in a mumble. Natalie, you read, and for goodness sake, open your mouth!” (Does Miss Lattelle think we’re ventriloquists, that we can read with our mouths closed?) Elizabeth Brogan: “Don’t you think soup making is thrilling?” Marian Davison: “Well, it is rather ‘stirring’.” —•-D.H.S.- — •D.H.S.- JIBS Wanted: More truck breakdowns—Base Ball Squad. Some advice—Wesley Schubert. More automobile rides—Pearle Chamberlin. Less conceit—Willard Reindlaub. A trouser-pressing outfit—Carroll McClure. Good positions after graduation— Commercial Seniors. Some originality in hairdressing— Sophomore Girls. A new swagger—Beauford Johnson. To be called angelic—Charles Pollock. A mirror for certain Junior boys. Less “filibustering” in History— Charles Cain. Something to drink—Johnny Fran-cella. Things We’d Like to Know: I f the martyrs in arithmetic class really know what they don’t know. How Beauford manages to meet Sara Baen going home from school. Who Alice Cook’s friend is? Why Myrtle Good took such a sudden interest in the baseball game when Earle Garrison came to the bat. Why Anna Wharry was so anxious for the Seniors of Coatesville High and Downingtown High to go to Washington in one party. Why Emma K. likes to gaze at Louis Knauer. Why Julia Greth groans when she walks (better keep away from the sliding-board, Juila; it’s dangerous). Famous Sayings Heard in French Class on Days Dedicated to Classics: “I forgot we had classics today.” “I thought we had the next page.” “What’s the meaning of that word; I forgot it.” “I studied the same lesson we had yesterday.” “I couldn’t find my book, so I’m not prepared.” “I wasn’t here yesterday, so I didn’t know what to study.” “I couldn’t get any sense out of that lesson,” etc. etc. Things That Will Never Happen: An undignified Senior class (?). Catherine Deets not giggling. Isabelle Hall keeping quiet for five minutes. Mar vena Miller not blushing. Hugh McDevitt not writing poetry. Everyone exempt. John Powell not using puns. John Cahill having all his lessons prepared. Senior English class not being too indefinite. Francis Tweed not in company with the ladies. A short Virgil assignment.
