THE CUCKOO 47 1922 Mr. Gast—“Now we’ll let the girls defend this article. Mr. Bou-sum what do you think about it?” 1922 Mr.Forsgard—“Turn around and stop whispering.” Sara Baen—“ I wasn’t whispering I was just talking. ” 1922 “Marian Dague is going to Camp Chespeake for her health.” 1922 Mr. Schmidt—“I do wish you would turn around and stop talking.” Albert Wheatly—“I wish I could stop talking too.” 1922 Miss Lukens (French Class)— “What number is babies?” Ed. Dixon—“Two.” 1922 Mr. Taylor (In General Science)— “What is a good list of books besides the Bible. ” Joe Moran—“Wbizbang and Magazine of Fun. ” Somebody said Dick Neill had the mumps. 1922 Ques—“What is it that fastens two people together and only touches one?” Ans.—“ Wedding ring. ” Ques.—“What is it that everybody is doing at the same time?” Ans.—“Growing old.” Ques.—“If I were in the sun and you were out of it, what would the sun become?” Ans.—“Sin.” 1922 Miss Lukens—“Will you tell what a conjunction is, and compose a sentence containing one?” Freshman—“A conjunction is a word connecting anything, such as “The horse is hitched to the fence by his halter.” Halter is a conjunction because it connects the horse and the fence.”

46 THE CUCKOO Mr. Forsgard the busy business man Is rather hard to understand He sure can teach, he knows his stuff. But the Shorthand class he uses quite rough. X. Last but not least comes Mr. Schmidt, the Private secretary. He is most dignified and droll, His humor is dry but wary. XI. When we meet in distant years And on some foreign shore We’ll still pay tribute, dear faculty To the honors you won before. FACULTY PAGE ON WASHINGTON Several weeks ago a very impressive meeting was held at the school to commemorate the life of Washington. The points brought out about him were good. They were too good. One would judge Washington as something of a saint. He was never a saint and would probably be offended if he knew he were so judged. He was just an ordinary man but oh, such a man! What is there about him that makes us remember him? That is easy. What is it that makes us remember any man? He was one man who did things. He never was heard to talk about what he would do if he had better opportunities. Nothing doing. He just went ahead and did what he wanted no matter what the barriers were. With the icy blasts against him he crossed the Delaware on that memorable Christmas eve and captured Trenton. He kept heart when everything seemed to be wrong. That is the trouble with most of us. We are good talkers. We are so good at talking that we seldom get anything accomplished. To my mind there is only one way for the school boy or girl to lie like Washington, and that is: “Keep your mouth shut and get busy.” Fred G. Forsgard.

W. B—M. E. S. 1922 Mr. Gast—“Give some of the characteristics of Longfellow’s poems. ” Alice Cook—“He is a good story teller.”
