HAVE you ever wanted to meet a
"man of the ages," one existing
only in books and in the minds and
hearts of the people of this genera-
tion? This inclination is not a fancv
which will soon fade away to become
an obsession, for a thought like this
penetrates into one's mind until it
becomes a torment. Ever since the
dav I realized the importance of a
history book I have admired one of
the truly great men, Abraham Lin-
coln. He fought to preserve the Un-
ion for which we are now fighting:
he considered the necessity of prov-
ing that popular government is not
an absurdity. Had not it been for his
tragic death, he would have lived to
see his dreams materialized. For it
seems he'was sacrificed during the
time his services were most needed.
If he had lived, what would have
been his desires for this country, and
how could such a seemingly unattain-
able goal be reached? Question upon
question-could they be answered?
They were, or at least, my mind un-
derstood to a greater extent this
statesman, whose hands had helped to
tie together the bonds of a broken
About sunset one afternoon. I lay
on my bed letting my eyes wander to
the ceiling. At my first glance I saw
a rough place in the yellow-lined
iwallpaper, caused from the damp
weather, but as I continued to stare,
my eyes focussed upon something en-
wtirely different. The rough place
gradually formed into a huge hill,
and the lines were paths leading to
the top. To my surprise, I was
.ascending one of these paths toward
aitall, lean, angular man, who seemed
to appear from nowhere and walk in
my direction. Upon reaching me, he
gently took my hand, and we started
walking to the top, which seemed so
far away in the distance. I looked up
and completely observed my compan-
ion. He wore tails and his face was
lean, with many small lines: his hair
was 'tousled by the wind. When I
finally caught my breath I asked-
"And so at last I meet you, Mr.
Lincoln? I have come a long way."
He nodded with a smile, and that
smile transformed his face into one
of kindliness, sincerity, honesty, and
wisdom! His voice, when he spoke,
was not shrill, but low and calm.
"Yes, my dear, you have come
from a world of war. Oh! will there
never cease to be wars! My memory
recalls another war. One night many
years ago I stood by a window look-
ing out at the soldiers marching
home, tired and worn. That moment
I wanted dreadfully to be a young
man again, reading law by pitchpine
light with friendliness of the people
around me. But Tim waits for no
man as its passes sp edily on. Soon
I was no longer called "Abe Lincoln
of Illinois," but 'President Lincoln."
Then out of the stillness of the dawn,
cannons boomed, and soldiers march-
ed away to fight. These soldiers
fought to vindicate the principles of
self-government. They knew in their
hearts that the conflict would be a
lasting one. They fought and died!
Homes were broken, leaving only the
weeping families! The thing I was
forced to do was right, yet it troubled
me to the end. .
" 'All persons held as slaves within
such designated states and parts of
states are, and hence forward shall
be free! '
"But the land had to be free: the
North and South had to be free.
These soldiers below my window
slunk homeward, doubting victory.
My heart felt for the South, and I
longed for it to emerge from the
deep dark depths of oblivion to hold
its head up again. It has been a long,
hard struggle, but it overcame this
obstacle. My wishes were carried out
indirecuy by the leaders who 'fol-
lowed in my footsteps. '
"Again to-day a dark cloud has
passed over as war emerged from
selfishness and desire for power on
-the part of so many people. The re-
maining people fought because they
wanted to protect something dear
to them. That something' needs no

explanation, K for the' simple Word,
freedom, means so much in itself.
The names of Bull Run, Gettysburg,
Vicksburg, Appomattox, shall always
ring in my ears as Tarawa, Iwo Jima,
Guam, D-Day, Guadalcanal, shall
ring in yours. Yet, in our hearts we
" 'That, these dead shall not have
died in vaing that this nation under
God, shall have a new birth of free-
dom, and that the government of the
people, by the people, for the people,
shall not perish from this earth? 5'
As though some unseen hand had
dismissed me, I slowly descended the
hillside, and at the bottom I turned
and looked up for one last glimpse of
this "man of the ages," ,who gave
such a clear conception of the pres-
ent. He waved when he saw me glance
back, and as quickly as he had come
he disappeared, for I was staring at
the yellow-lined wallpaper on the
ceiling. I did meet him, though, if
only in adream!
Lenore Monnot '45,
ON that first day of my Senior A
term, I woke with only one
thought: I was finally on the last
lap of my Senior year. To think that
in only a little over four months I
should be graduating was almost too
much. I sank back on my pillow to
enjoy the deliciousness of contempla-
tion, only to be interrupted a few
minutes later by the sound of Moth-
er's voice asking, "Are you never
going to get up?" I was so excited I
could scarcely dressy but the clock
ticked menacingly 'on, and I knew
that I must not be late on this of all
My arrival at the school was
greeted byfa chorus of voices, Senior
A voices, welcoming others and my-
self into their smug, complacent
group. Four years had taken its toll
and those who were left had won
their places as Seniors with "blood,
sweat, and tears." We had at last
reached the top and. quite naturally
expected all to wonder at the marvel-
ous new Seniors. But those' other
students of lower rank, walked right'
by, quite happily oblivious of our
thrilling status, not realizing that
our joy could not be drowned by
their ignoring- us. ' ' '-

man toog but now it seemed long,
long ago that I had moved in that in-
significant circle and had so much
as acknowledged those known as my
predecessors. Could I possibly have
been as tiny as this swarming mass
about me? I thought I had known so
much. Could it have been that I too
was ignorant of all but thex basic
fundamentals? Helping these be-
wildered and frightened newcomers
was just one of my many added tasks.
But oh! what a glorious task it was.
Here was my chance to let everyone
know that I was a Senior. Here was
my opportunity to direct and com-
mand, and inwardly 'to wonder at the
helplessness of the new generation
that was following in thefootsteps of
this wonderful Senior class -of mine.
Could these wee mites in their pres-
ent apparent stupidity ever rise to
the station of a Senior possessing all
the knowledge that was mine on this
first day of my Senior A term.
As this class holds elections, and
plans for graduation, my thoughts
are reaching ahead to the last week
of my four years of high school. That
week, which will be filled to over-
flowing with luncheons, parties, and
programs, is the one which all girls
dream of. We wonder who will come
out first? We wonder who will win
the English cup? These questions are
foremost in the minds of my class-
mates and me as we anxiously await
honor day and graduation. The ma-
jority of the girls in my class have
spent their entire four years at Mc-
Main and we are all held together
by the bond of human friendship
which comes from close association
through the years. '
We are the class of '45, and in
graduating will separate to go in
many directions, moving towards our
individual goals. Some will go. on to
finish their education in the various
universities and colleges of the na-
tion. Many will enter the business

HAVING more than the usual share
of wisdom and comprehension,
I have taken it upon myself to in-
struct those slow minded creatures
who compose a large part of my pres-
ent English class upon the art of
writing essays. Recently I was ask-
ed to broadcast my views upon the
subject over the Purple Network but
decided to postpone my address, not
deeming it right to enlighten the
world before giving my own beloved
classmates of lower mental capacities
than myself the benefit of my erudi-
So, at this point I shall begin, hop-
ing that you will pay the most duti-
ful attention to very word. Believe
me, great things are in store for you:
greater, indeed, than brighter minds
could reasonably comprehend. Per-
haps, though, you have already read
my short stories, poetic works, bi-
ographies, and histories, and are al-
ready brimming over with uncontroll-
able enthusiasm and passionate fer-
vor at the prospect of being inspired,
and lifted to the- heights of joy by
the heart warming style with which
I convey even the most d-ull and
monotonous facts written by learned
men of former ages.
Let me, before getting into the
heart of the subject, present my
views upon the work of the noted
essayists of the past. It is the honest
and firm opinion of the writer that
those essays of Carlyle, Lamb, Hux-
ley, and others are too difficult to
be read by those of your ability. lf
there are passages which you don't
understand after looking up the more
difficult words in the dictionary I

words are then merrily dashed off ,
when, suddenly and without warning, I
all thoughts cease and the writer is
at a loss for words. Commonly this

IT has been said, "Your personality
is revealed through- your hand-
shake". Therefore great pains should
be taken to achieve such a handshake
that will cause everybody to know
that the performer has the finestper-
sonality ever. This can be done bv
observing many people'-s handshake-s
and benefiting by their mistakes.
First, there is the "Bone-breaking
Handshaken. This is usually the
greeting from a happy, red-faced
gentleman who enjoy-s food and ob-
viously eats plenty of it. He will
walk up to you, a broad smile on his
shining face. and with Aa gentle pat
on his back, which leaves you breath-
less, he grabs your hand in a vise-
like grip and swings it up and down
until your face grows pale and your
weak admonishings are finally under-
stood. For the next four or five
minutes, as you slowly regain your
former composure, you are besieged
by the heroic account of your com-
panion's last fishing trip during which
he, of course, played the leading role.
Occasionally, too. as he pauses in
his exciting tale it is up to you to
or Nah". Finally.
as his eye falls on another victim.
you get another pound on the back
and a hearty good-bye. As soon as
your companion's back is turned all
attention rivets to the hand. You
massage it with great care and hope
never to meet his kind again.
Then there is the "Cold-fish Hand-
shake". This greeting is typical of
"simply delightful ladies" who, after
shaking an uncountable number of
hands at their social gatherings simu-
ly cease to exert pressure atgall. If
you have ever had this gruesome ex-
perience you know what an empty,
lost feeling you get when expecting a
responsive return you suddenly find
yourself holding an inanimate object
which 'refuses to react at any cost.
Finally you drop the hand with an
expression of mild disgust, politely
mutter "au-revoir" and continue on
your way. '
g A handshake that, if you care much
about tact and good manners in -so-
ciety, will throw you .off your guard
completely, is the 'fMight-have-been
Handshaken. A hostess at a U.S.O.
dance, for instance, comes in con-
tact with this type only too often.
Knowing that a lady should always
put her hand out first, she politely
extends hers and waits for a response.
A few seconds pass and becoming
puzzled her gaze rises from a tightly
clenched fist up a stiffly starched
sleeve to a slightly rounded shoulder
and finally to a freshly scrubbed face
of a young soldier only to discover
his eyes intently observing what the
younger generation would call a
"slick chick". She withdraws her
hand with a patient sigh and moves
on to greet another G.I. Joe.
There is also the "Ill-mannered
Handshaken. Only members of the
stronger sex are guilty of this mis-
take. Sometimes, when, trying to
make a good impression on a lovely
lady, he is a little too eager and ex-
tends his hand first. The lady whom
he is so rudely addressing looks down
on him with disdain in her hard eyes
and coldly moves away. ,
Last, but surely not least is the
"Correct Handshakeu. This greeting
should be the aim of every person.
In it is expressed with true sincerity
one's happiness and pleasure at meet-
ing or seeing again an old friend.
The best example of this handshake
is the 'strong clasp of a minister who,
at peace with all the world, endeavors
to extend his true happiness to others.
With this thought, I conclude, and I
leave it to you, reader, to decide
which of these handshakes applies to

I n Writing
By Barbara Terry, 45
ERRIE, Weezie, Johnny, Dot, Jon-
sie, June-golly, shall I ever finish
answering these letters? Just as
soonas I getone written, another
one drops through the mail-slit in the
door to the rug beneath, and I begin
the cycle all over again. Now, mind
you, I'm not complaining 'about re-
ceiving mailg it's only the fact that
getting a letter means answering a
letter, and that alone ,is my com-
. I don't know why, but every time I
sit down to write a short letter, I
always end with a manuscript of
about :six pages, and a bad case of
write1j's cramp. Where I get all the
ideas to fill that much space is be-
yond me. I often wonder what the
person who receives the letter thinks
as he contemplates the pages. Does
he think, "Oh, joy! Another nice,
long letter from Whoozit!" Or does
he despairingly remark, "Will she
ever quit writing long letters? Now
I'll have to sit down and rack my
brain to find news enough to answer
her." Or is he the third type, whose
only remark is, "N'uts!" This is the
type of person who never answers
This third type includes the person
who will never write a thank-you
note, because he doesn't know what
to say. Anyway, he thinks the send-
er of such a beautiful present should
know he likes it, so what's the use of
going to the trouble of 'writing a
thank-you note? After a while he
receives no more presents or cards,
and wonders what has happened to
all his former friends.
The more common type in this
category, however, is the person who
receives a lengthly epistle from a
very dear friend whom we'1l call
"Ben". Ben begins his letter with,
"I haven't heard from you in a long
time," and ends with "Write soon,"
of course expecting a long letter in
return. But he doesn't reckon with
our dear friend, "the more common
type." This person thinks to him-
self, "Pd better wait a little bitfbe-
fore I write him, so that I can gather
some news to make my answer long-
er." So he Waits, and week after
week passes. Finally, his conscience
begins to bother him, and he decides
he had better write the thing and get
it over with. As he sits at his desk,
pen in hand, doubts begin' to assail
him and he wonders whether dear
old Ben still lives in Detroit. Maybe
his firm has transferred him to Kan-
sas City. "That's where he was the
last time I wrote," he remembers.
"Or maybe he's been drafted. He
did say something about it in his let-
ter. That's it! I-Ie's been drafted!
It won't do any good to write to him
now. It'll take too long to catch
up. I'll just wait till he writes again
and tell me his new address." So,
his conscience eased by this effort,
unsuccessful though it was, he goes
blithely about his business. He likes
Ben! Surely, he's one of his very
best friends. But they've been separ-

atedl now for over a year, and it's
such a task to have to write all he
wants to say.
But now let's take 'a look at "poor"
Benq Ben is one of those rare per-
sons who in their spare moments,
further obligate their friends by
sending added news in an unreadable
scrawl. Never a day goes by that
Ben doesn't write a letter, but seldom
are his friends as quick in answering
him. Because his love of letter writ-
ing is known so well, his friends
never think of answering him until
they have received three or four let-
ters. Some, like the person about
whom we've just spoken, never
answer him at allg but this never
bothers Ben. He knows how hard it
is for some people to write letters,
and how all people love to receive
them, so he keeps on writing. There
aren't very many people who really
appreciate Ben, but the few who do
treasure his letters and write to him
as often as they can.
While I have "dissertated" upon
the two extremes in letter writing,
I've not mentioned the person who
is in between. There really isn't
much to say about him, for this per-
son, if given enough time, will gen-
erally answer all the letters he re-
ceives and loves to make new friends

little while at leastl. This character
is the average letter-writer, and there
we shall let it rest, for every person
has his idiosyncracies, which are too
In addition to the few general
types of letter writer given above,
there are many special styles. Many
persons, in fact, are in, a class by
themselves, but there isn't room in
this paper to mention them. I But in'
closing let me say that this essay
has made me more conscious of my
own letter writing, and that of my
friends. I wish we could see one
an'other's faces, and watch the chang-
ing expressions as we read our let-
ters. I'm sure it would be a sight
to behold. Next time you receive
a letter, remember your reaction, and
when you meet your friend, compare
notes with him as to his reaction
when he received one of your letters.
I imagine that there would be many
surprises if we really did such a
thing. And, it might make us more
careful of what we say. K V

IN the spring a young man's fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of love,
but a young boy's fancy turns to
marbles. When the March winds
come roaring and capering through
the towns, theitrees are covered with
verdure, and the dainty spring flow-
ers sprightly nod their bonneted
heads at each passerbyg a young
boy's pockets are' filled with many
things-tops and kitestring, but, espe-
cially marbles. What a reverie of en-
chanting thoughts comes to your
mind of those miniature balls of mul-
tifarious colored marble, which are
not really marble, but glass. Breathes
there a man in these United States
who has never played an exciting
game of marbles, or does not even
proudly boast that he once played
Of course, everyone knows that
the object of this thrilling game is to
knock the marbles out-of the ring.
A great majority of the American
youths play the commonly known
game of "ringers," but there are ap-
proximately twenty-Hve other varia-
tions of this 'popular game. There are
a number of rules, which are often
quite as complicated as those in foot-
ball, but they vary from time to
time, therefore, there is no reason
either to confuse or bore the reader
here with any complicated instruc-
tions on how to win a marble tourna-
ment or how to play marbles. You
may secure the principal rules from
any school boy.

legend, which was told by an an-

Egyptian pharaohs. When the Colon- f '31-1

version of marbles with round stones s
in the cool, green depths of the shady

similar to the one which our fore- A,

THE actual finding of a bargain, an
advantageous. purchase, is seldom
the result of the tiring experience of
bargain hunting. Bargain hunting
may well be defined as "a transaction
or event involving good or bad conse-
quences", usually involving the lat-
ter. For examplei let us consider the
experience of a certain Mrs. Jones.
Mrs. Jones rises one bright spring
morning without even the slightest
notion of what is in store for her
that day. Drowsily she picks up the
morning news and scans its pages
with herhalf-opened eyes. She is in
the midst of a very wide yawn, when
suddenly something catches her eye
'which immediately stirs her interest.
those words which always bring a
thrill to the hearts of economic house-
wives-"Big Bargain Sale".
Thought after thought goes buz-
zing through Mrs. Jones's now wide
awake brain as to when the store
opens, how long it will take to get
there, whom to get to stay with the
baby, and how much time she has.
After quickly glancing at her watch,
she heaves a sigh, for that glance'
has told her she has but forty-five
minutes. Her mathematical mind be-
gins functioning and in a few seconds
she has conceived that she has to al-
low at least twenty-five minutes for
the ride to town, leaving the slight
sum of only twenty minutes to get
The rush is on! She dashes to the
phone and after getting the wrong
number. and the busy signal several
times, she finally gets in touch with
the girl next door, who agrees to
stay with Junior. To help matters,
Junior begins to cry' and after run-
ning back to his room, Mrs. Jones
finds him on the floor, where he had
fallen trying to climb out of his crib.
When she has sufficiently soothed
him, she hurries to dress. Finally
she is ready and dashes out of the
house, giving Mary Jane lastminute
instructions on how to care for
Junior. ' ' '
Mrs. Jones, half lrunning, half
walking, makes her way' to the car
line. Just as she reaches the stop,
a car goes whizzing by, leaving her

standing there a bit disgusted. After
a few minutes' Wait, 'she catches the
next car. Nervously she glances at
her watch every few minutes, won-
dering whether or not she will arrive
in time. On and on the street car
creepsg Mrs. Jones has reached town.
Hurriedly she makes her wav down
the crowded street, dodging this per-
son and running into the next, until
she reaches the store which is having
the sale. .
Just as she reaches the entrance of
the store where hundreds of other
bargain hunters are waiting to cnt-er,
the bell rings and the doors swing
open. As a fish is drawn into a
wild, spinning whirlpool, so Mrs.
Jones is drawn into the even wilder
crowd. She elbows her way through
as best shecan saying, "Excuse me",
in her most polite manner when she
has jabbed someone in the ribs fac-
cidentally, of coursej.
Since the shoe sale, the one which
she is interested in, is on the second
floor, she has the perplexing problem
of getting into an elevator. Several
times just as she is about to step into
an elevator, the operator calls out
in a very sweet tone, "Next car,
please !" At last Mrs. Jones success-
fully makes her way into an elevator
and feebly says, "Second floor,
Having reached the second floor,
she peers around for the shoe tablesi
She has now arrived on the outskirts
of the crowd surrounding what she
has found to be the shoe tables. Since
she cannot see the shoes for the
crowd, she decides to shove her arm
through and grasp whatever shoe she
can get her hands on. '
After many unsuccessful attempts
to and quite a few embarrassing sit-
uations, our Mrs. Jones finally gets
hold of a shoe. On examining it she
finds it to be her size, the color she
wants, and the right style, just the
thing for her Easter outfit. But, oh,
my, Mrs. Jones then realizes that she
has but one shoeg the other must be
found. The struggle with the crowd
is on again. Attempt after attempt
is unsuccessful, but to Mrs. Jones's
delight, she finally finds the mate
Now there remains but one prob-
lem, that of getting someone to wait
on her. What a problem it is, with
so many people and so few sales-
girls! Mrs. Jones waits, and waits,
and waits some more, until finally,

the street car, Mrs. Jones at last
reaches her home in most exhausted
condition. Feebly she opens the door
and throws her weary self down to
rest on the lounge. After relaxing
for a few minutes, Mrs. Jones decides
to take a good look at her prize pack-
age. As she opens the wrapper,
thoughts of the wonderful bargain
she has found, and how lovely the
shoes will look with her new outfit
float through her mind.
Eagerly she opens the lid of the

and golden-tinted croakers. Such are
the night, time and place where my
floundering trip occurred. -
Of course when I go floundering,
I always wear clothes and shoes
'fwhich have seen better days", be-
cause I sometimes do not see those
empty flounder-beds, some of which
are pretty deep and mucky, and I
actually come up from them, wet to
my knees. Some people, I know, love
the idea of going floundering bare-
footed, but I do not recommend that
to beginners in the delightful sport,
since my friends, the flounder-beds,
sometimes contain tiny sand-crabs
and homeless fish. X
'To distingush the flounder from
the stingray beds, indeed requires
skill beyond just knowledge of flovun-
dering. Although I do have my spear
to defend myself, I never forget that
the stingray has two ends with which
to attack, while the only protective
power of the poor little flounder is
his ability to speed away from his
After "years" of walking, I finally
come upon something that resembles
the picture of a flounder that I have
once seen. Cautiously, groping my
way through the black night, I creep
up to the flounder, scarcely breath-
ing with fear that I might frighten
him away. It seems at this moment
of the game, I hear all theunocturnal
noises that might cause me to miss
my first flounder of the night. It is
not, of course, the "fish of the fish-
erman's story",.but just the idea of
seeing the ounder buried in the
sand runs a tingle of excitement up
and down my back. My thoughts race
back to the particulars a friend had
told me about catching a flounder:
"Feel your way to about one foot
from his tailg then with all your
strength, spear him, right between
the eyes." With every care and cau-
tion, I take the final step, the step
that means the difference betwen
life and death, lof the flounder, I
meanl and plunge my spear in the
After the ruffled sand calms down
and the water changes its color from
white foam to a velvety smooth
greenish-blue, I can clearly see the
resultof my night of preparation.

ing eyes in his back. After much

finds his new home to be .the bot-
tom of a porous sack which I have
With a grin of satisfaction of
a deed well done, I hurry to the
beach and, literally, run home to our
cottage. To a person in this state of
mind, everything seems to be just
beautiful and supremely perfect. It
seems to me this night, the lady of
the moon is smiling at me brighter
than ever, and the stars, endlessly
winking and twinkling, also know of
my great success. Our little white
cottage is set far back among mas-
sive, stately pines of deep green and
dignified brown. What a beautiful
picture that makes is something for
a professional artist to describe. But,
back to my flounder!
Now to catch the flounder does in-
deed take skill, but to know just the
right way tocook it takes not just
knowledge, but experience. This seems
like an anti-climax to a good, spine-
tingling mystery story!
The best place to cook such a deli-
cacy is on an open barbecue pit when
all the outdoor is clean and full of
refreshing odors, plus, of course, the
less desirable ones that always seem
to tone down the smell of the spicy
pines, the feel of the cool, salty gulf
breeze, and the looks of the rich jet-
black mud. With all the care of hand-
ling a new-born baby, lay the floun-
der on the shining- grate over the
.red-hot coals. Then daub it well with
a sauce of melted butter and season-
ings. One of the most delightful
things about eating this "king of all
fish," is that a flounder has only
back-bones. The rest of his priceless
meat is left free of the -piercing
"milk-white spears". After. it has
been turned to a golden brown hue,
garnish it with sprays of parsley,
lemon slices and olives, and you have
a dish fit for the gods.

,Peggy Robert, '45 Q1
ON THIS particular Saturday morn- .3
ing I had started for Biaham's ,
Butcher Shop early. At nine olclock
I boarded the bus -that would carry V pig
me to that establishment. Sitting
there I noticed' all the various types E'
of people entering this mode of ji
transportation-people as different E
as the ingredients of fruitcake. The ' 1
stout old gentleman on my right l-
greatly resembled a dried prune, but 'EL
the woman beside him reminded me ,.
of the weakest stringbean in our
victory garden. I was unable to in- QQ.
spect the rest of the passengers be- 'ggi
cause we were ,nearing my corner. Aggfff
"Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer"
and off I got, off the cozy, dry bus f
into damp, sultry streets filled with
war workers rushing to their re-
spec-tive plants, business men dash-
ing to 'their offices, school girls, j-F
"bee-lining it" to the lakefront and .
parks, and--ah, yes, housewives rush-
ing to Biaham's Butcher Shop. . -A
I noticed for the first' time since
my departure from the Public Serv-
ice's conveyance, the seemingly end-
less swarm of women, hurrying .to-
ward the door of one little shop
down the block. So I, knowing it
had to be done, followed the hurry-
ing, gossiping, chattering crowd of
women. "Well, -I never did like
Mabel's hat, but I couldn't tell her."
"John? Why he's been promotedg he's
a colonel." "Oh, I?se sorry to heah
'bout Amos' death Mirandy, but I
just got a letter fum da wah depart-
ment telling me dat -1- -- --"
"--- and I can get a nice beef sir-
loin with my remaining twenty

one can hear many.bits of conversa-
But, see, I've arrived at Biaham's
safe, sound, and unruffled, well, safe
and partly sound, anyway. "Gosh,
this place is crowded."
"May I get through."
"Would you mind using your own
feet to stand on?" ,
I shall at this point digress to re-

There exists a number system.
'enterihg one's favorite butch-
er- shop Cor any other shop where
one knows meat is on salej one ob-
serves a curiously placed table, box,
or stand near the entrance. Upon
close inspection the box discloses
many square cut pieces of card
board, each with a number on it.
These numbers are placed one on top
of the other, increasing as the stack
decreases. Each would-be-customer
entering lifts a card from its com-
-fortable resting place and commences
to examine the interior of the shop
while waiting for her number to be
called, at which time she will be
served. In the meantime, a passer-
by can hear the loud calling of num-
"Number 152-53-543' .... .... .,.. ....
' Right here
To an outsider this may seem like
an exciting game of lotto, but we
meat buyeis know what lt is
I shall continue After securing
my number I retired to a rather un-
crowded location of the overcrowded
shop to observe the many anxious
customers One often becomes ac-
quainted with others who are also
waiting Such was the case when Mrs.
Abcad QI learned laterj approached
me asking 'How long have you been
waiting?" After receiving my answer
she exclaimed Ten minutes' Is that
all?" Then followed a conversation
which is far too hazy to record how-
ever, it was evident that Mrs. A.
wanted the remaining six lamb chops
on display I was obliged to interrupt
my compan1on's idle chatter when I
noted an elderly lady slowly making
her way to the door number in
hand Just as I thought Cand hoped
incldentallyl as she brushed the box
of numbels she dropped hers on the
top of the stack I quick as a bunny
retrieved the discarded number and
was very pleased to fmd it was num-
ber 181 because my origlnal num-
ber had been 227
This change of numbers meant at
least an hours difference in waiting
time Numbei 172 was then being
called by one of the busy butchers.
In another moment I was again at
the side of Mis Abcad As before,
she began to Jabber 'Jabber Jab-
ber, mumble Jumble " It wasn't too
long after when I was awakened from
my stupor by the calling of number
180 Much to my amazement I was
being pulled through the crowd by

Mrs. Abcad or No. 180. "Look they're
still there," she said to me pointing
'tom the chops in the refrigerator.
When asked what she wanted she
said, waving and pointing toward the
lovely, looking lamb chops. "I'll take
q"0K! Ninety cents and twenty-nine
points", the beaming butcher re-
"Bu't I don't have that many
points," she 1'etorted, "and I must
have them all. I'll bring you the rest
of the points next-
"Sorry lady,-next, 181."'
"I'1l take the lamb chops," I said
as I -pulled from my purse both points
and money. 1
I'm quite sure I lost a newly made
friend, for with that I. left the
wretched woman standing with her
mouth hanging open and her eyes
popping. As I pushed through the
crowd I could hear her last words-
UWELL OF ALL THE NERVEP'
Anne Gulledge, 45
FRIGHT, according to the diction-
ary, is sudden fear. The great ma-
jority of people at some time or other
have been frightened half out of
their wits, but to explain fear or
fright to someone who has never ex-
perienced it would be rather diffi-
cult. To try to give this person the
meaning of fright by telling him that
it is sudden fear would simply be
giving the person a couple of mean-
ingless words. You would, therefore,
have to give an example or illustra-
tion before he could fully comphe-
hend the matter. As I sat here pon-
dering over this terrible dilemma. I
recalled a frightening experience
which occurred to me in my youth.
Maybe you- will say that it is only
an awful nightmare, which I should
forget, but the hollow coldness of
this fear haunts me day and night.
In the beginning Lallie and I were
afraid something would happen. It
might have been ,intuition or it could
have been the night-that night, I
shall never be able to fully erase it
from my memory. Vivid pictures
flash in my mind, as I recall it. It
was a cold, dark, dreary night. The
wind was alternately howling loudly
and moaning sadly around the eaves,
and the windows were rattling. All of
-- V - '- .Ax -L ,L -. 1, X... . 1-5.7-ni.

the doors were tightly lockedg-but
they continuously creaked on their
hinges. Outside, the shuttersbangekl
and jarred. The surrounding houses
were shrouded in. darkness, because
the neighbors had long gone to bed.
Lallie and I were alone in this
dark gloomy house, which had been
rumored to be haunted. We were
sitting upstairs, telling ghost stories,
which seemed very realistic and
which made us shudder and shriek,
as we took- turns relating strange,
mysterious blood-curdling tales. Sud-
denly, we- jumped with fright when
we heard the front door squeak, as
someone almost silently swung it
open. Who could have opened a lock-
ed door? Perhaps it was a ghost and
the fantastic stories we had heard
concerning the wierd 'things which
had occurred under that same roof
' The wind sent forth a loud moan,
which shook the house and sent chills
down our spines. Steps followed the
moang therefore, it could not be a
spook, because only a human could
walk like that, taking a few muffled
steps and then pausing, as if to see
who was at home. Now the steps were
coming closer and were distinguished
as being in the dining room. Next
they would come up the stairs and
then what should we two frightened
girls do? We were too scared to
squeal or to run to the phone. Hor-
rible thoughts flashed in our minds
as we pictured vividly Lallie's parents
coming home and finding us dead.
Our breath was coming in short,
hard, quick gaspsg our faces were
whiter than snowg and our hands
were damp with cold fear. All We
dared do was to clutch each other
and to pray silently that if we were
to be murdered, to let it be quickly,
or for Lallie's parents to return be-
fore we were killed, but we knew
the latter was hopeless, since it would
be hours before her parents returned.
Yes, the footsteps were heard onthe
staircase. The steps creaked and
groaned as each step was taken. Now
they had reached the landing. They
were coming nearer and nearer by
the moment. Each second brought the
footsteps and our death closer. They
had reached the door and we two
stunned girls with fear in our eyes
watched the door knob tremble.
Suddenly, the door knob turned and
the door was flung open. There stood

N ARE you sure he had enough
lunch?" questioned Mary as
she ran down the steps to the freight
"Aw, sure I'm sure, Sis," Johnny
replied, very mannishly. "Ole Eric
Red's gonna be the best soldier in all
"Didn't the directions say he'd get
fed on the train? .0h, why did we
answer that ad for dogs that said,
'Uncle Sam needs your dog'? It
meant someone else's. Jeepers! I
wonder if I could go along and take
care of him?"
Sadly Johnny held back the tears,
but tried to assume a nonchalant air
as he answered his sister. "Now,
wouldn't you look fine running along
behind a good soldier like Eric's
gonna be, asking him if he was hun-
gryozu . p
Eric had been christened Eric
Red I when, as a pup, he had dis-
played a large red blob on each ear.
It was so hard to reach a decision
as to what he should be called that
the Johnson family had decided to
combine his two' nicknames into a
distinctive "moniker", No longer a
gangly pup, Eric had acquired still
more blobs of red on his entire bcdy,
which glistened in the sun and dis-
played his graceful curves, and soft,
silky hair to the best advantage.
Fondly Mary and Johnny petted
and talked to their dog until the sad
moment when the -conductor yelled,
"Get that crate aboard, ladg this
ain't no picnic we're going to."
Then, glancing into the crate as the
train slowly gathered speed, he
called back, "Don't you be frettin',
childreng we'll take good care of
A strange feeling swept over Eric
as he felt the train carry him away
from the, home 'he had known since
he was a clumsy, sprawling puppy.
EfG'H'OfEfs' ' " -
"Maybe they didn't like the way I
buried Mary's dolls," he thought
mournfully, "or maybe I ate too
much. People are so queer when you
don't please them, but I never
thought Johnny would send me
As the hours passed drearily by,
the little streamliner drew closer
and closer to its destination. All
this time Eric meditated on the sit-
uation in which he found himself.
Why, oh why was he being sent
away? How long must he stay
penned up in this box? Where was
heigoing? He didn't understand all
the talk he had heard about his be-
ing a soldier. Who was this Uncle
Sam who needed him? He knew
that Tom Johnson had gone to war,
but "war" was only a word to Eric.
When the train finally gave a great
lunge and came to a stop, he was
worn out with discomfort, worry,
and bewilderment. '
Eric strained every nerve to see
or hear what would happen now.
Suddenly the cage door shot up to
bring into the range of his anxious
eyes a man dressed in the queer
garb that Tom had worn the last
time he was at home. Slowly the tall
figure stooped over to examine him,
and a big, rough hand moved gently
over his soft coat. All at once Eric's
troubles seemed over. I-Ie still
didn't know the answers to the ques-
tions which bothered him, but that
didn't matter any more.. He did
know that he had found a friend,
and he looked up trustingly as the
soldier said, "Steady, boy, steady.
We'l1 be seeing a lot of each other
from now on."
How true his statement was! For
in the weeks that followed Eric Red
found himself led through a strange
wonderland of adventure with the
soldier, whom he now recognized by
the name of Svendsen, at his side.
Each day he was taken through a
meadow filled with holes, fires,
steep, man-made cliffs, and muddy
ditches. Above all this a strange,
booming noise, much louder than his
master's gun, roared overhead. After
tirelessly struggling through the ob-
stacles for days on end, he became
.used to his accustomed routine, ,but
never to the, rat-ta-tat and boom-
Eric never forgot the day his mas-
ter gave, him a new harness! and
brushed- him with undue ceremony,
repeating through the process, "This
is it. This is our day to shine, fella."
How strange to tell him that!
Nevertheless, the faithful dog obeyed
to the letter. Because he wanted to
please his master and show his dog
friends his ability, he took particu-
lar pains tor show himself bold and
,unafraid as he went through the mea-
dow. When he was paraded past a
group of very tall, dignified men, he
patiently allowed them to examine
him from his alert ears to the tip
of his tail without flinching.
"How silly of usto stand here let-
ting strange' men in fancy uniforms
examine us," he said to another dog.
"Pm hungry and I'd like to get back
to my quarters." H
Just then a throaty voice boomed
out, "'Private James Svendsen, you
have successfully put your dog, Eric
Red I, through the stiff training
school for army dogs. It is now my
pleasure to congratulate you and de-
clare your dog a full-fledged mem-
ber of the K-9 corps."
Many months passed before the
day of actual combat arrived. In a
small landing craft, steering toward
a calm Pacific isle, Eric Red sat pa-
tiently at his master's feet thinking,
"Surely I'm not the dog that con-
sidered it nothing special to have a
steak bone with every meal!"
Truly he was a different dog, for
he had been 'trained iifuthe army and
was now a soldier, complete with K-
rations. His train of thought was
broken when Svendsen silently
stroked his throat, then said softly,
"This is the real thing, fella. Show
them you're the best K-9 in the
Then the sky exploded and turmoil
was on every side as Svendsen and
Eric Red plunged into the icy waters
towards shore, alongside, countless
other soldiers. A strange sense came
over Eric and he seemed to hear a
voice crying, "Faster! Faster! Don't
look back! Stay next to Svendsen!"
and at the same time questioning
him, "Will you make it? Hurry!

The last twenty-four hours have
been the most nerve-racking arid
thrilling of yours truly's long life.
It began with my taking in that
soldier, which, in the first place, was
all nonsense. He had been in some
sort of brawl, we gathered. A Someone
had found him on the large front
porchg he was shot and badly cut.
I was firmly against taking him in,
but what else was there to do? It
was late and I'm the only one in or
near our apartment house with med-
ical training-something he could
use then and there, apparently, He
was conscious--I was positive of that.
Although his wounds looked bad,
they weren't bad enough to cause
the state of unconsciousness which,
it seemed to me, was just a pretense.
After I had fixed him up as well
as possible, the others went back to
bed, satisfied and thrilled. They are
mostly middle-aged women like me,
so I didn't let on my real feelings:
even then I felt decidedly suspicious.
The poor souls hadn't thought of go-
in!! through his pockets and I must
admit I was too scared to do so.
The soldier was still playing 'nos-
sum, so, before he could protest, I
gave him a good, strong hyuo. which
nut him out like a light. When he
had been sleeping for about a half

to pull out his wallet. At first ap-

about twenty-three dollars, some
arrnv credentials, a civil service card
in the name of Bruno Schultz, a
small card with two addresses-one
in the next apartment house and one
over across the tracks, and a clipping'
from a newspaper. ,
"Heavenly days!" I thought, "I'll
bet this is important. Maybe it will
explain things", and naturally I be-
gan to read.
"All citizens of southeast Texas,
especially of Jefferson and Orange
counties, be on the lookout for a
man wearing an army uniform of a
sergeant. He is a German spy, but
speaks without an accent. He is six
feet, one-half inches tall, has blue-
gray eyes, and blond hair. He is the
sun-tanned, athletic type, with no
scars or special marks.
"This man is dangerous to our
refineries and ship yards. Anyone
seeing him, please call the nearest
police office as soon as possible.

strong. Do not attempt to fight
him. Do not attempt to hold him

I'm pretty wellshockproof-being
a nurse-but this was out of my line.
I don't remember anything untilthis
morning. I guess I fainted and just
went to sleep without coming out of
my faint. When I did come to,
though, I remembered everything in-
stantly, something unusual for me.

"Congratulations from Honor Girl" ' .

THE game with Carvel was over!
Central High had won the cham-
pionship! The gym was alive with-
boys and girls, happy in the fact
that their school was victorious.

'UI-Iurry up, Janice," called Jackie.
"We'l1 be late for supper if you
don't pep it up some."
"0. K. I'll be there ina secg let
me tie my shoestring."
As Janice bent down, 'she saw a
light-blue wallet lying on the floor.
"I guess it's Jackie's," mused
Janice, "I'll take it along. Wait up,
Jackie. Here I come."
"It's about time. Let's stop at
Bailey's for a coke. I think we have
"O.K. with me." t
As the girls entered the drugstore,
they were hailed from all sides by
their friends, but finally made their
way to a corner booth -after stop-
ping at about ten tables.
"Hi, Jackie and Janice. Sit down.
Wasn't it a wonderful game? Did
you see that long shot Jimmy made?
We couldn't have won without it!"
"And did you see -the way Glenn
kept Smith, the star player, guarded?
He couldn't do a thing to us," inter-
So ran the conversation for the
next fifteen minutes, with everyone
talking at once.
"Golly, Jackie," said Janice, look
at the time. "Let's go so we'11 have
plenty of time to get home."
"All right. I'll pay the check. Wait
outside for me."
Janice waited outside, impatient
because of the time Jackie was taking
in the long line.
"I'll just put the dime for my coke
in Jackie's wallet. She won't take it
if I don't," thought the girl as she
Janice rummaged through her
purse and finally withdrew the wal-
let. On seeing the amount of money
.in it, she exclaimed to herself, "Gee,
Jackie should be more careful.
There's no identification and all her
money for her ring is in here! I
should keep it until tomorrow until
ordering time and teach her a les-
Just then Jackie came out of the
drugstore. "Here, Janice, hold my
books while I put this.new picture of
Betty in my wallet. Isn't it good?
She just got the proofs back. You'
should see the one she gave Jack."
"Say, Jackie, is that your wallet?"
"Sure, whose do you thing it is?
You know mother refused 'to let me
buy that pretty blue one in Black's.
Mildred Williams went in right after
me and bought it.
"She said--She wouldn't let you-
I mean-You haven't a new wallet?"

Janice turned and walked away,
puzzled. She didn't know what to
do. -There was no identification in
the wallet, and with the extra money
she could get her ring. Because of
the illness of Earl, her brother,
money was rather scarce in the
Browns' house. Earl needed a special
operation on his leg if he was to
walk again, and of course that meant
no extras outside of the graduation
,"But I don't mind, really. After
all, a seventeen-year-old graduate
knows how to take life." So Janice
thought, but she still co'uldn't help
feeling a little bit sorry for herself.
".I'll just keep it and return it to the
office first thing in the morning."
But all thoughts of the purse were
wiped from her .mind when she
reached home. Earl had fallen and
was worse. Her mother was at the
hospital where she would stay all
night. Janice was to eat. study. and
go to bed early. '
All this happened on Monday af-
ternoon and Tuesday was a day on
which everything went wrong. The
alarm clock didn't go off. Janice was
tenminutes late and forgot her first
period homework at home. Oh, what
a dark day! At last the lunch bell
"Jackie," she cried, on seeing
her friend, "I surely am gladtc see'
you," and with these words, she
poured out her tale of woe. ,
"You think you have trouble," an-
swered Jackie. "Mildred Williams did
buy that palegblue wallet, but lost
it again with all her graduation
money in it. She says she doesn't
know where she lost it, either. Isn't
that tough?" '
"Yes, but her father will give her
, "No, he won't. He said she was
spending too much money lately,
what with the war and all, and re-
fused to give her more money for
anything! ' I
"Was her wallet really light blue?"
Yes, didn't you know? You hav-
en't seen it, have you?"
"Um-I' was just asking. Well, I
have to go study my Latin. See you
"She didn't have to run off like
that," thought Jackie. "After all, I've
been dying to tell her Jerry finally

asked me to the Prom. Well, if she
wants to be like that, all right." And
with these angry thoughts, Jackie
joined her -other friends.
But Janice wasn't studying her
Latin. She was walking on the
campus. "I really don't have to give
her the money. After all, she is sure
to get the class ring. Why should
she get two and me none? It isn't
fair! She has always had everything.
. "But what am I 'thinking of? I
couldn't'keep the money. It wouldn't
be honest. Everytime I looked at the
ring, I'd think of how I got it. And
suppose someone should find out! It's
no use-I have to give back. I've
know it all the time. Might as well
take it to her now."
And that is how Janice made Mil-
dred, who was almost her enemy, the
happiest girl in the school.
Wednesday would have been just
like any other day, except that Tom
Walker met Janice on the way to
school and finally asked her to go
to the Prom. She could hardly wait to
get to school to tell Jackie.
At two o'clock the Senior Class
meeting was drawing to a close. The
last number on the program wasthe
presentation of the class ring to the
girl or' boy whom the class voted the
best all-.around and most worthy to
wear it. As Tom Walker, the class
president, rose, an expectant hush
fell over the class.
"Graduation is only a few weeks
away, and We haven't much time left
to be together as students of Cen-
tral High. Soon our books will be
gone and in their place we shall hold
many fond memories. Now, at this
point of in-
of the class
time, comes the high
ring. Before We go
let mel say that the secretary will
take all orders from students for
their rings. But one girl-yes, the
honored one is a girl-will not have
to place an order. This girl has been
known for her friendliness, leader-
ship, and likeable personality. 'Pm
sure everyone agrees with me when
I say 'Congratulations' to our Honor
Girl, Janice Carter!"
The rest was blurred to Janice.
She was so stunned she could hardly
think. "Imagine me, Janice Carter,
the Honor Girl! Mother and Earl
will be as thrilled as I am. Thank
Goodness I returned that money.
Thank Goodness for the Golden

NBUT Mother, I've told you," in-
sisted Helen bitterly.
"Yes, dear, 'I know," interrupted
her mother, "but he's such a nice
young gentleman and he's so polite.
I just don't understand why you
don't like him."
At this point, Helen, red and an-
gry, left the room, retorting, "I just
won't have you living 'my life and
making all my decisions for me, even
though you may think you are do-
ing the right thing!" 1
This hot argument all came about
when Helen Donald arrived home
after her day's work at Far-
rand's Department Store. Her moth-
er had just informed her that Mr.
T. G. Farrand, III, about whom the
argument had started, had phoned
and asked if he might take Helen
out that night. Mrs. Donald, seeing
no harm in doingso, immediately
consented, even though she knew her
daughter strongly disliked Mr. Far-
iand. Helen had long known. that
young Tom Farrand was the spoiled,
conceited grandson of the owner of

Mrs. Donald, following her up the

more than you think. I do wish you
could take a liking to him."
Helen dressed ra-ther hastily and
ate her snack, finishing just asthe

It really doesn't matter to me,
Mr. Farrand. It seems you've al-
ready planned almost everything
with Mother," she replied coolly.
' "'Well, go along, dearg have a good
time and I'll not wait up for you,"
put in her mother as the two left.
Several hours later, Helen re-
turned, angry and more bitter than
ever. As she left her escort at the
door, sheicily thanked him for a
,"lovely" evening. She undressed
and, exhausted, threw herself in bed,
immediately going to sleep.
The next morning during break-
fast, her mother asked if she had
had a nice time the night before.
"No, Mother, I didn't. I just can't
enjoy that man's company, and
please, if he calls again, don't tell
him I'll go out with him."
"Yes, dear, only, I wish you
weren't so bitter. He would make
a wonderful son-in-law," was her
mother's' innocent remark.
"Mother, I haven't'even the slight-
est intention of seeing him again,
much less .giving him the chance to
propose!" Helen answered, amazed.
She swallowed her cup of coffee
and left for work, thus implying
that the subject of Mr. Farrand was
During the next few days, Mr.
Farrand's name was not mentioned,
but a certain Mr. Harry Clarke's was,
quite a' few times. He took Helen
out nearly every' night and she
seemed to be wonderfully happy dur-
ing the time. He was a promising
young man, for he had started at the
,bottom as a stock boy at Farrand's
and had worked himself up to the
best shoe salesman' in his depart-
One night, both Helen and Harry
had stayed at the store for a Christ-
mas Eve party and Harry had told
Helen he- would take her home. It
gcould 'easily be seen that young Tom
Farrand had had a little too much
,to drink. He was now swaggering
.toward them wi-th his eyes bleary
bloodshot. I A -
j 7ff"Mishter Clarke, 'could I sheeyou

asked.. f1g ,V . .K Q
ff'Yes,f Farrandff replied,Harry and
,turning ,to Helen., 'he 'told her to get
-'rvL.'.,s r --
her coat and hat and he would be
with her in a 'few minutes. .
As she stood inside the door wait-
ing, she saw that the city was in
for a "White Christmas." There
were already a few flakes drifting
down and the cold stiffness of the
air showed that the snow wouldn't
be long in coming. She pulled her
coat tighter around her and shivered
a little as the door opened for some-
one, admitting a burst of cold air.
She wondered what was keeping
Harry and decided to go back to
the room where the party was
ting to be very noisy. There
asked if anyone had seen Harry,
was 'told that Harry and Tom
gone into the adjoining room
hadn't returned. She went to
door and heard Harry's voice faint-
ly above the rabble of the party.
He was saying, "You did steal
money from the cash register,
"Yes, but you'l1 never tell any-
one. No, sir, I'll see to that. You
may think I'm dead drunk, but I
can still see straight enough to see
that you won't ever tell Grandfather
or anyone. You won't even live long
enough to propose to Helen. I'm go-
ing to marry her, understand. Pm
going to marry her!"
At this moment Helen pushed the
door open just in time to see Tom
seize a heavy decoration from the
wall and start to bring it down with
murderous force. But as he caught
sight of Helen, he dropped his heavy
implement and stared.
"You're going to marry Whom?"
she asked. ' '
As he turned toward her, Harry
took advantage of his opportunity
and 'knocked him out. He sank to
the floor unconscious and Harry
opened the door, calling to the night
watchman, "Hey, come take care of
this fellow, will you?"
Sobbing and trembling, Helen was
clinging to Harry. "It's all right,
honey," he said, "Let's go home." V
When Helen had regained her self-
composure, she asked' Harry what
had happened in the room.
"Well," Harry replied, 'fhe asked
me, as you know, to come into that
room for a minute. He insisted that-
he was going to -take yourhorneg but

thought he would bully me intofletf

was to propose to you! In fact, he

guessed that young Tom must have
taken the key and stolen the money.
When I accused him of it, he knew
he was trapped, and if you hadn't
interfered, he would have killed
me." . X
By the time they reached Helen's
home, a heavy snow was falling and
it was after midnight.
"Helen, do you know what time
it is?" Harry questioned. , -
"No," was the reply, "but it must
be pretty late."
"It's after midnightg it's now
Christmas Day. Merry' Christmas,
darling!" he said as he slipped a tiny
diamond solitaire on her finger.
"Merry Christmas, . Harry!" she
whispered with her heart in her eyes.

across the full brown tents. In the
soft, unreal night. the pyramidals
looked like aboundant shocks of corn.
Rv the wire near the beach, a rangy
soldier lay on his back. his banjo
on his stomach awkwardly strumininor
on the strings. He pecked out sin'I'e
notes and sent them whining into the
night. He could hear the men in
the tents checking and recheckiwr
their efiuinment. He wanted to write
a letter home. but knew he couldn't
nut the things he felt on paper. There
was no wav of describing the uncer-
taintv' and loneliness. They were

on.e knew where they were going or
what they would find there. It was
a winter's moon on a tropical hear-la.
naradoxically warm to them, enticing.
yet its unfamiliar light was disturb-
ing. He was playing "My Old Ken-
tucky Home" and the bitter notes
that came from the banjo were like
a young Negro whose memory holds
tragedies he has inherited but never
known-"For my old Kentucky home
+far away." . '
Andnthere he lay, strumming his
banjo, and dreaming of home. The
little house on'a curving street facing
the hills was a beautiful sight all
year around, but in the winter, when
the fir trees wear white collars and
the shadow of the fence is purple
on the drift, when the birds take
tiny stitches in the snow and our
'footprints hurry toward the house as
dusk draws nigh, there is an enchant-
ing, and unforgettable warmth of
home. The warmth of home, its
fragance, coming from the outside-
from the winter air-the waiting look
the rooms have-the dining room
where the little blue cupboards with
pretty things are in the corners! The
was still the best companion, the
truest friend, the only--Dad. And
then, there was Mom at the station
kissing him good-byg trying hard to
keep from crying, but as he boarded
the train, he could see tears in her
eyes, shining like drops of rain in
the sun. The train pulled out and
from the back platform he saw her
tiny handkerchief dab at her eyes as
she strained forward lest she miss the
last glimpse of the train. And those
goodies! Everyone enjoyed them so.
Gee, Mom surely is a good cook! She
knows just what a fellow likes. She
was always working so hard to please
everybody, but you didn't think about
that 'until you were away from home
and you couldn't ask for your favor-
ite pie and, presto, at supper time
there it is before you. You just
don't appreciate anything until
you've lost it. .
But it isn't gone forever. Some day
he'll be back home in that old corn-
er room with the school pennants
that Mom has kept so neat and ready.
Heid been eating K rations for so long
that he no longer thou-ght of fried
chicken, salads' or cake, except at
the peak of a growing description of
things longed for. He thoughtnof
fried eggs and crisp strips of bacon
sizzling in -. hot grease, the aroma
penetrating the thickest walls to drift
under one's nose and arouse him
from his quietest slumber. He could
remember the way the green linole-
um was worn by the sink, he could
-hear the radio playing and see 'the
evening paper droppedf under the
light at the end of the blue divan.
These are some of the little things
he looks forward to. For it's the little
things-the small familiar pleasures
-that to him, as to all of us, add up
to home. ' i -
understood each other ever since
they had been very young. Then he
was caught in a 'whirlpool of imagi-
nation that sent him spinning back
to dreamland. She was a quiet kid
with a small face and her eyes were
soft, sort of like a kitten's. He
never thought anybody could- ever
feel the' way he did about some
things. And here was another per-
son, even if it was a girl. They had
grown up together-loving and un-
derstanding. Once in a while they'd
go to the movies 'with the gang, but
lots of times, they'd just stay home
and play checkers or go over the old
Latin. They had planned everything
just as it should be' and when he
gets back, there'll be newer, finer
ways of enjoying the land he fought
for. Maybe he will have his post-
war meals in pink and purple pills:
maybe he'll swoosh to work in a rock-
et car-maybe so! But there are ,a
few things that eleven million G. Ig
Joes want to find just as they left
them-just as they've dreamed about
them through all these long months.
Such as the unchanging love of the
girl who waited and the corner room,
and the old fireplace and America.
He knows what America means
now. He had known her rivers be-
fore, her towns and her slow climbing
mountains. He had learned the places
where Ehe could go and Where he
could not go, but after serving her,

not his. 'A little courage had earned

farther future, a quieter time among

the ripples on the beach seemed to
echo-"My Old Kentucky Home-
A HEAVY curtain of smoke arose
as the fog of early morning lay
like a blanket over the bloody battle-
field, where watchful men were try-
ing to penetrate the soupy atmos-
phere about them. No sound was
heard except the distant thunder of
anti-aircraft at the front and the
closer groans and cries of -the woun-
ded. In the trenches and behind the
lines, medical men were moving with
quick efficiency as the stretcher
bearers carried in the slightly wound-
ed cases which could be patched up
under fire. The more seriously
wounded were carried back to the
hospital, if possible, or treated as
best they could be under the present
conditions. As the smoke slowly as-
cended, the firing began and soon
the noise of machine gun and rifle
took the place of the death-like quiet-
Like the bouncing up of a jack-in-
the-box when the lid is raised, a huge
red setter leaped from a distant shell
crater and made his way quickly but
carefully across the field in the 'di-
rection of the front trench. On his
back was strapped, a small leather
case containing a message for the
lieutenant in the trench. The dog,
sensing that his appearance was a
goodtarget for snipers, ran as close
to the ground as possible. At inter-
vals, if the shooting became extreme-
ly difficult to dodge, and if he were
near a foxhole, he would drop into
it until the shooting slackened and
he was able to proceed amid slighter
disturbances. Within a few feet of
the trench the force ofan exploding
hand grenade near-by, knocked him
down andlcovered him with the dirt
that had been torn from the earth
with the explosion. He lay for a min-
ute beneath the debris, not hurt, but
only stunnedg then with a final burst
of strength he ran for the comfort-
ing shelter of the trench, which he
He was exhausted, and as the mes-
sage was removed from its case and
an answer written, he lay on the
hard dirt floor of the trench with
his chin on his paws, and let his
mind wander back to his home.
He had come to the family as a
tiny, silky red pup with long ears
and big paws. They called him
"Casey,," not for the famous Casey
Jones, but because that name seemed
suited to him. He was, you know, an
Irish setter, though at first everyone
doubted it. But as he grew older, he
became slim and graceful and indeed
lived up to his name. His face, long
and well shaped, had a proud, arro-
gant, rather superior look and his
eyes were alert and watchful. His
ears never dropped, even in scolding,
but held themselves erect defiantly.
His hair was silky and thick and of
a rusty reddish color. His tail, long
and forever wagging, resembled the
plume of a fashionable lady's hat.
Casey was loved by-the family and
all who knew him, yet he was feared
and respected by the dogs and cats
of the neighborhood. For it was his
joy to fight with the dogs or 1'un the
cats up a tree. But if he were scratch-
ed or hurt in some way, he allowed
no one to doctor him. He was his
own physician and healer. Above ev-
erything else, Casey loved hunting.
Just the removal of the shot gun or
twenty-two rifle from the closet
would send him into hysterical bark-
ing, and if the words, "How about
it, Casey, let's go hunting . . . ?"
were spoken, his joy was limitless. He
could roam through the woods for
hours, never tiring, treeing squirrels
or chipmunks and chasing rabbits or
even cows, if he could find nothing
betterq Finally arriving home again,

Then one calm Sunday evening
the peaceful life came to an 'abrupt
end. The United States was at war
with Japan. The men and boys every-
where were joining some branch of
the service. Two from Casey's family
went, one never to return-and then
they decided to let Casey go, too.
The next six months were the most
difficult in Casey's life. He was
taught, not to be loving 'and gentle,
as he had been at home, but to be
suspicious of everyone. He was
taught to run under heavy fire, to
jump over deep ditches and high
walls. For the first time in his life
Casey also learned what it was to be
hungry and thirsty. But he survived
the rigid tests and landed smack in
the middle of trouble, spelled
His train of thoughts were inter-
rupted with the placing of the mes-
sage in its case on his back. Once
more he began his slow progress back
over the field. His former thoughts
of home were far away and he con--
centrated only on getting back to
his shell hole. But halfway over,
lady luck deserted him and a bullet
hit him in the chest. And, amid in-
tense pain, he seemed to gain a
strange new strength and reached the
safety of his original shell crater.
After removing the message, the men
tried to ease his pain, but he would
have no part of that. I-Ie looked at
them solemnly, then with a sort of
apologetic look on his intelligent face,
closed his eyes never to reopen them
again. Of the men standing around,
more than one had a tear in. his eye
and a lump in his throat for their
faithful friend who had given his life
to successfully carry a message.
In a small plot, beneath a tiny
mound near the hospital, lies the
body of the courageous setter, and
over the grave on a wooden .slab
these words appear:
"He's dead. Ohl' Lay 'him gently in
the ground ,
And may his tombgbe by this verse
Here Casey, the pride of all his kind,

Theres No Place Like Home
WHEN Life becomes too difficult,
when the cares of the world
are piled high upon my shoulders,
when everything is apparently set
against me, this is the time that I
think of home. These are dangerous
thoughtsg for I'm afraid that quiet
sanctuary in my mind and the often-
times madhouse down on Lowerline
Street never seem to coincide. If the
reader will be so kind as to permit
me, I shall attempt to tell him what
I mean by this statement.
I arrive. "Home, home at last!"
I cry. ,
My mother looks up absently and,
sweetly pecking me on my cheek,
says cheerily, "I'm so glad you're
home, baby fughljg I want you to
go to the grocery store."
Now there are many combinations
of words in the English language,
but none of them hold so dread a
memory as the above.
I try to think of something cut-
ting to say, so, after thinking furi-
ously for a while, I pour forth with,
Nob !!l '
I take my coat back out of the
closet, comb my'hair, and then ap-
proach Mother to see if I can find
out exactly what she wants me to
get at the store.
"Oh," she says, "just get me some
bread, onions, potatoes, and, . . . er
.V . . just look around and get me
anything you want."
That command just thrills me pur-
ple, because I know that if I don't
get exactly what she wants, I trot
back to the store.
-Q Well, I go out the door, feeling
as if someone had just used my only
shoe coupon, -and start darkly down
the street. Now I should give an
account of my experiences at the
store, but they are too boring for
my inadequate pencil to describe.
The general idea, however, is that I
return home laden with a bunch of
nothing, walk into the house, deposit
my loot on the kitchen table, and
try to get into my room without any-
one's noticing that I have returned.
However, I do not succeed, and
Mother spies me.
'After setting the table, making
some cream sauce and generally
making myself useful, I pick up the
evening paper and eagerly scan the
pages to find "Little Abner." As I
settle back to enjoy it, thoughts fill
my mind of the cheerful atmosphere
and peace of one's own home. "Ah,
there's nothing like it."
But, wait. What's that? It can't
be true, it mustn't be, oh-o-0-o, it is
-MY SISTER. She comes in and
glares at meg I glare back.
A "My blouse," she says.
."My necklace," I retort.
We finally agree on armed neu-
trality and she leaves the room. I
return to my paper and find my
place-you guessed it-my Daddy
comes home. This means dinner and
I still haven't read the paper. How-
ever, I'm not complaining, because
my mother is just about the best
cook in the world las whose Mother
isn't?J. To get back to the subject,
however, we sit down and eat, and
talk, and gave a good time. Ah, I
just love my family. After we fin-
ish, Mother excuses herself. We
talk a little longerg then Daddy ex-
cuses himself. Gloria and I sit there
talking until the cold realization
comes to us that we're alone-with
the dishes. - We sit there a little
longer thinking that maybe they'll
go away, or wash themselves, or
maybe the house will burn down,
and we'll have to rush out leaving
the soiled dishes on the table. We
aren't very lucky, however, and the
hour of doom approaches. If Fib-
ber Magee comes on .at eight-thirty,
and it is only eight-ten then, and
it takes us fifteen minutes to do
the dishes, we figure that We have
five minutes to sit around and talk.
we sit around all right, but we can't
think of anything to say except, "I
wish we didn't have to do the
dishes"g to which remark the other
About eight-thirty, after Gloria
and I make the pleasant discovery
that doing the dishesAdidn't kill us,
we settle down comfortably to listen
to Fibber- Magee. Suddenly, the
door bell rings, and guess what?
Now to let the reader get a pic-
ture of the grim humor of this sit-

are a one-radio familyg fact num-
ber two-the one and only is situ-
ated in the living room'g fact num-
ber three+-the company, amidst
chatter and laughter, decide to in-
dulge in a few rubbers of bridge.
Gloria and I look at each otherg
our faces are two feet long. We
drag ourselves into our room and
decide to read. I pick up the Mc-
Call's, and start looking through it,
when Gloria comes up and says,
"Why don't you let me read that one?
You have all the afternoon to read it
and I have only night." All after-
noon, indeed! AThat finishes it! I'm
going to bed.
That ends my little tale of a
peaceful, calm, tranquil, and a
string of other adjectives, day. All
I do then is to give my hair the cus-
tomary five strokes, get ready for
bed, and leap in.
Now, beloved reader, I have de-
scribed one type of day to you. If
you think you can stand it, I shall
make a futile attempt to tell you
of another type. In case you are
too discouraged, I shall try to re-
late it in as few words as possible.
I came home, full of fun, ready
for anything, energetic as a tank-
ful of gasoline, to find no one at
home. This type of afternoon is
usually spent in reading, lolling
around the house, and using the
telephone. This type, too, is entire-
Now, I should like to describe to
you that wonderful, beautiful, ex-
quisite day, that day of days, that
culmination of all that is ideal, the
day when everything goes right.
Ah! I should like to, but it is im-
possible. In the first place, I have
used up all my time, and in the sec-
ond place, I shouldn't known any
adequate words to describe it. The
only thing I can say about it is that
kind of day is what makes one real-
ize what home really means, what a
family really means, and what Life
would be without them. It makes
one realize that her home is her-
self, as much as it is anything else,
that it is Mother, Father, sister,
brother, cat, dog, everybody. As for
me, I think mine is one in a million:
I wouldn't trade it for the world.

4 ing nor am I without feelings. When

Moreover, when Junior decides that
K he would greatly prefer "Sleazy
Sammy and his Slinky Slackers" to
that "ole long hair" music and aim-
,, . lessly tosses me aside, there is no
Q need to explain that more than my

51, to remain clear and bright as long
I , as I am not subjected to such crimes
,e as neglect, abuse and misuse. '
' ' As for my duration being dull and
V - uninteresting, I should scarcely agree.
, Perhaps I have in the past suffered
g, an acute case of melancholia, but
last week I was joined by two 'other
albums. After a careful comparison
of facts I learned, to my great sur-
prise, that they are close relatives of
mine. One is called the "Romeo and
Juliet Overture", while the other is
the "Fourth Symphony," and both,
as I, are offsprings of Papa Peter.
The day the "Fourth Symphony"
arrived, everyone in our household
knew i-t. His voice squealed through-
out the rooms, and the other records
remained in the chambers until his
little discs were worn thin. He join-
ed us a little later with "Those folks
don't know when to let up: thev're
wearing me out!" From the time
of this pun, we all grew to love The
Fourthg he is indeed a jolly album.
Yet, in spite of his fine character and
cheerful disposition, he is, beyond
all doubt, the loudest and noisiest of
us all. Papa Peter-created this sym-
phony as a tribute to Madame von
Meek, but I am certain, at the time,
he had no idea that he was creating
such a brat. .
The 'Overture is a beautiful crea-
tion. She Has the charm and grace
of Venus, the lightness and swiftness
of Mercury, and the vicious temper
and fury of Thor. She is a delicate.
flower, a precious jewel, and is my
favorite. Yesterday one of my rec-
The sun had set, the day was gone,
And shadows began to glide
Around the corner, up the walk,
In search of a place to hide.

Not a star could be seen in the skyg
The darkness grew thicker, the fog more

The storm hovered near, gathering its

was indeed a delightful experience,
for we were alone together. As
Junior was the only one in the house,
we remained uninterrupted, since he
was deeply engrossed in "Jumpin'
Jones and his Jivin' Jerquesf' She
promised to remember me always,
to be true to me forever, and to try
to be misplaced in my album as often
as she could possibly manage. This
may sound rather odd to you, since
I've previously explained that we are
close relativesg but you must realize
that it's all very different with rec-
ords. ! s
Yes, records are greatly different
from the uninteresting, insensible ob-
jects to which you refer. I have been
indeed happy in this house - my
home, and now that I have met the
Overture I am certain of future hap-
piness. My greatest pleasure is the
contented smile on the lips of an en-
thusiastic listener, and the sheer de-
light of being enjoyed. I am happy
here, and I wish to be forever loved
and cherished, wanted and heard,
played and not forgotten. I shall
forever bring forth' melodious strains
to you, serve you, and maker you hap-
py. All these things I am willing to
do-I, that uninteresting, insensible
album of records.

Morning, In Hawaii
K Carolyn Atkins, '45
The golden sunlight trips along the
Of ranging mountains glistening in morn-
' ing dew.
Below, the gaily colored parakeets -
Chatter in palms that lean o'er waters

And breezes soft caress and cool the sand.

Smiling in a sky so bright and blue.
Beauty breathes about us all,

While walking through the woods one
I stumbled on a nook V
lVhere different colored flowers
And a sparkling brook
Glided over mossy stones
Bubhling on its way
And pretty little fishes darted
Merrily in their play.
The air so sweet, the grass so nice,
The home of dove and raven,
T'was a minature paradise
This calm and tiny haven.
Why Can"t I Be Like Others?
Regina Taylor, '45
I wish that I could be
just like the other girls
Who always look'so pretty
With their hair all done in curls.
They wear such pretty dresses,
And look so neat 'and clean.
Their eyes have a certain sparkle,
And they always look so keen.

SENIOR PLAY-JUNE MAD
The play "June Mad" by Florence Ryerson and Colin Clements was presented on Friday, June 12, 1945. From
all reports this play went over "big" and was enjoyed by young and old. The young who saw themselves mirrored on
the stage and "the old who saw the problems that would confront them -when their own darling caught the June bug
and went f'June Mad."

Then they were there. AAs the
four-legged soldier dug his paws
deep into the sandy beach, he
seemed to hear the voice saying,
"You've just begun. Luck, old boy!"
As quickly as they had come, the
raging noises went, and everything
on the island was silent. A state of
excitement lingered over the little
scouting party as they huddled
around a signal map in an effort to
locate their exact position.
"Here we are," one soldier
pointed out on the map. "We are
only. a short distance from Tree M,
where we are to receive a reply to
"Good work," said Sergeant
Svendsen. "Now, men, keep your
eyes peeled for a white pigeon.
There she- comes, right on sched-
ule. Here's hoping we get to Tree
M before she does."

With as much tenseness as his
master, Eric watched the graceful
white bird soar through space closer
and closer to its destination.
"Men, that bird means life or
death to us," Svendsen said serious-
ly. "We must get that message."
Suddenly a shot pierced the still-
ness. The bird plummeted toward
the ground and into the icy waters
off shore. A muffled groan rose
from the little group of men.
No sooner had the bird fallen than
Eric Red's body began to quiver with
the eagerness of a true retriever.
With only .instinct.to guide him, he
launched himself into the bitter surf
so quickly that he did not hear his
master's frantic cry, "Come back,
Red, you'll be killed."
Slowly he pressed on toward the
bird as bullets pinged around him.
Closer and closer he came. Ah, now
he had her securely in his mouth,
ready to return to the shore. A
sharp pain pierced his side as he
swam, but he refused to give up his
struggle. Shakily he crawled into
some thickets on shore. The pain in-
tensified, but Eric Red forced his
way through the underbrush until
he caught sight of the men for whom
he was searching. With a whimper
of pain a badly-wounded hero col-
lapsed under the strain of his deed
as he laid- his prize at the feet of
his master and felt strong arms em-
bracing him, while a well-known
voice said, "Good work, fella, good
Weeks later Eric Red lay curled
up at the feet of his buddy-in-arms,
peacefully gnawing the remains of a
ham bone. He could hear his master
proudly relating his heroic dog's ac-
tion as he displayed the beautiful
bronze medal awarded Eric for valor
and loyalty to duty. Lieutenant
.Tame Svendson was very happy that
day, and Eric Red's heart surged with
triumphant joy, for he knew that he
had pleased his master.

By Honore Morrow
IN March, 1861, the United States
was alive with inward struggleg
the strong bonds of the Union were
severed and bleeding. The Southern
States, joining together to form the
Confederacy, elected Jefferson Davis
to lead them in their fight-for slav-
ery, while Abraham Lincoln, the
backyard lawyer, was inaugurated as
President of the United States. Be-
cause the author gives an accurate
account of the arguments for and
against slavery, one understands the
Southern land-owners' great need for
slaves, but realizes that the equality
of man holds true, regardless of
Though his appearance does not-
merit it, -Lincoln was possessed of a
brilliant mind and a charming per-
sonality. He awkward height, his
too prominent ears, his shambling
gait, his huge hands and feet, and
the striking sparkle of his grey eyes,
full, deep, and penetrating, were
merely disguise for a man, whose
genius will be remembered forever.
Mrs. Morrow' excels in her portrayal
of Lincoln and his struggle to over-
come many hardships.
' When the time came for Lincoln
and Tad, his youngest son, to leave
the Union army camp, which they
visited, Taddie seemed to have mys-
teriously disappeared. Finally, he was
found by the bridge, crying 'for his
father. On his arrival, Lincoln asked,
"Did you get homesick all of a sud-
den, Taddie?" f'Don't touch me,
Papa,".commanded the tiny lad .in a
voice hoarse from long sobbing. "Pm
unda' my own a' west. I sent fo' you
to tell you I have ,to stay hea'alI
night." "What bad thing have you
done, Taddie?" Lincoln asks solemn-
ly, "I killed something I loved. The
co'po'al gave me a little weeny white
kitten. Then I stopped hea' to play
with itg I played it was Jeff Davis
and I was an Indian chief and I threw
my bowie knife at it. I didn't want
to hu't it but the di'ty skunk of a
E-C-H-O-E-S . ,
knife slipped and went in the kit-
ten's soft belly and it mewed and
mewed, and I couldn't stop it or help
it, and it died. I knew you wouldn't
punish me so I'm doing it myself."
In this touching scene, the author de-
scribes'the character of "Tiny Tad"
and his knowledge of his father's
"Forever Free," an intriguing his-
tory of Lincoln's life -in the White
House, is a fast-moving account of
the "Great Em,ancipator's" struggles
for the abolition of slavery. Becom-
ing familiar with the prominent poli-
ticians and problems of the dav, the
reader thereby increases his knowl-
edge of facts concernnig the Civil
War. Many of the everyday happen-
ings which influenced Lincoln's mag-
nificent decisions arelvividly and ac-
curately described by Mrs. Morrow,
whose ceaseless research into the life
of Lincoln is shown by the length of
the bibliography. Exceeding-ly en-
ioyable are the scenes concerning
Lincoln's relations with his family:
his gentleness in the rearing ofhis
children is the source of much hu-
mor. Highlv entertaining, this en-
chanting book should be enjoyed by
any reader whol desires a better
knowledge of Lincoln's term as Pres-
ident ofl-our country.
Ann Levy, '46.
Red Rock .
Thomas Nelson Page
THE setting is laid in the' South,
somewhere in that vague region
partly in one of the old Southern
States and partly in the yet vague
"Land .of Memory." The people in
the story speak of it as, "the Red
Rock section," "the old country," or
just, "my country, sir."
Of the many characters the one
who impresses the reader most is
J acquelin Gray, the son of the owner
of Red Rock. In the opening scenes,
Jacquelin and Blair Cary, the beau-
tiful young daughter of Dr. John
Cary are playmates. When war is de-
clared, Jacquelin, fifteen years- old,
. , '.-13.14 x I
leaves to fight for the South, and
when he returns, to his home after
the war, he finds many of the old
places destroyedg because of' an
illness, Jacqulin takes a trip around'
the world. Upon his return, his Mo-
ther dies leaving his brother, Rupert,
and him under the guidance of Aunt
Thomasia. With the other men of
that section, he then fights the car-
pet-baggers and finally overcomes
their tyrannical rule. In the end,
Jacquelin marries Blair and returns
to his former home.
Mr. Page, a prominent author of
Southern literature, lucidly describes
the rolling Red Rock country, the for-
ests and meadows, and the sparkling
streams bubbling over rocks or wind-
ing under willows and oaks. We see
the realm of old time courtesy and
high breeding, when all men bow low
before ladies and wear swords to de-
fend their honor. The author has
given us an engrossing novel in
which he brilliantly combines adven-
ture, tragedy, and humor.
Rhea Brennan, '46.
THIS adventurous story of the early
nineteenth century has for its
setting the section of the turbulent
Mississippi River between a small
Swedish settlement in Minnesota and
St. Louis, Missouri.
In "Swift Rivers" Chris Dahlberg,
the main character, is a young
Swedish boy with 'all the determina-
tion and courage a youth can pos-
sess. Being ill treated by his uncle,
Chris leaves him and goes to live
with his aged grandfather who abides
in a large forest. Striving to find a
way to make money to support his
grandfather and himself, he cuts
timber from the forest and floats it
down the river to St. Louis. '
An arresting scene is one in which
some of the most valuable logs dis-
appear during a wreck which occurs
on the trip down the river. Chris
and a friend desperately- set out in a
small boat to look lfor them. After
hours of searching, the boys find the
logs in a small lagoon guarded by
hostile Indians. Plans are madefor
retrieving them without the Indians

Q " Cornelia Meigs' keen interest in
United States history is manifested
in this novel as in many of her other
books. Although the main purpose
of the author was to entertain the
much interested reader, one also
learns a great deal about the hard-
ships of a steamboat captain and his
crew. In the conclusion, Chris re-
ceives his hard earned money and re-
turns to his waiting grandfather in
Vera Wright, 47.
Among the numerous characters IS
a tall heavily built man who had
beerrreared among the Indians and
who later struggled with the white
men to force the Indians to search
for new land on which to live. Angus
McDermott the light blue-eyed man
was hardly ever seen without h's
musket which to him was his only
means of protection while living' his
rugged life.. When he fell in love
with a young girl, his life did not al-
together change, but he did become
a little less adventurous.
An inspiring scene is one in which
McDermott searches for the girl for
whom he had a deep affection.
Earlier, she and her family were im-
plored by McDermott to leave their
home because of a neighboring un-

MR. WALTER HERBERT, general
director of the New Orleans
Opera House Association, has an-
nounced the soloists and operas se-
lected for this coming 1945-1946 sea-
son. The operas will be "Traviata,"
November 8 and 10g "Barber of Se-
ville,'?fNovember 21, '22, and 243

friendly tribe, the Shawaneseg how-
ever, on their refusal to heed his
warning, they were subsequently
captured by the tribe. In his search
for Charity, the young girl of the
family, he was successful: she was
released to h-im from the Indian tribe
on an agreement. '
Thomas Boyd, the author of this
enjoyable book, probably wrote it to
improve the knowledge of those who
know little about early Americans
and to recount the feelings regard-
ing land settlements between the
white men and the Indians during'
those pioneer days of America. In-
deed, the romantic lives of two main
personalities prove to be most ideal-
istic and satisfying to the reader.
"Abduction from the Seragli0," Feb-
ruary 13, 14, and 165 and "Faust,"
February 28'and March 2.
The soloists include- a group of
Metropolitan Opera-singers: Licia
Albanese, Lily Djanel, Raoul Jobin,
Thomas Hayward, and Nicolo Mosco-
no. Others signed were Hilde Reg-
giarii, Ivan Petroff, Charles Good-
win, Eugene Conley and Jess Walter.
The latter three are returning from
last year's presentations. These fa-
mous artists combined with the
operas selected shall make these win-
ter concerts a notable 'season musi-
cally. ' ,
been presented. In the 1840's sev-
eral famous opera companies were
brought from Europe and gave at the
orleans, si. Philip, and st. Charles
Theatres, as they are now called,
many performances of creditable
opera. Records today show that
many an opera received its New
World premier at these theatres.
Three of the best-known of these
"first-performances" were Donizetti's
"Lucia di Lammermoorf' and Ha-
levy's "La Juive," which were pre-
sented respectively in 1841 and
to Lyle Saxon, New Orleans' favor-
ite. This is indeed ia remarkable
showing for the early eighteenth cen-
tury. ' '
Many concerts were given at the
St.- Charles Theatre from 1840- to
1855. Jenny Lind, the "Swedish
Nighiiiigiilf-i," and Ole Bull, the
violinist who was a friend of Edward
Grieg, were among the most success-
ful artists presented. Miss Lind's
success is evident, for the tickets to
her first concert were auctioned off,
the first one selling for 5240! In'
1853 Maurice Strakosch, who was
appearing with Mr. Bull, introduced
Adelina Patti, his protegee, who was
then but ten years old! But the best
and most famous of these musical or-,
ganizations had not yet been formed,
for the French' Opera House wasfnot
to come into .existence until 1859i-, Q4

musicians that New Orleans has pro-
duced, there is one that should not
be omitted in a discussion of New
Orleans music. Louis Moreau Got-
tschalk of Creole descent was born
here in 1829. Taken to France whenf
he was only thirteen, he studied in
Paris with Berlioz, and soon made
his debut, achieving immediate suc-
cess for both his virtuosity and his
compositions. The immortal Freder-
ick Chopin once predicted that Got-
tschalk would become the king of
Orleans the musical center of the
Southern -States, disappeared into
flame, smoke, and ashes.. It was
destroyed by a fire just a few
months after the death of Adelma
Patti the singer who was so closely
associated by Orleanians with the
old French Opera House.
At the beginning of the twentieth
century, a new type of music was
created in New Orleans by Negro
levee workers. This style, which be-
came popular about 1915, was origin-
ally named jazz. However, it might
have been called the "slang" of
musical expression, for like slang it

pianists and be long remembered.
His compositions, like those of Chop-
in, are similar to the "local-color"
works of literature, for as their sub-
jects he took songs expressive of his
period-the Louisiana Negro and old
Creole melodies, and French-Cajun
folk songs. There are a great many
others who deserve mention--Ernest
Guiraud, the opera-writer Whose first
work was presented when he was
only sixteen 5 and Emile Johns, a
salon-music composer who won con-
siderable recognition for his "Album
Louisianaisn-but for the Amoment,
Gottschalk, the best-known, is suf-
Ten years before Gottschalk's
death in 1869, a building was erect-
ed five blocks from Canal Street, at
Toulouse and Bourbon Streets, that
was destined soon to become the
center of the social- life of New Or-
leans, and the most fashionable opera
house in the land. The French Opera
House Association, erected in 1859,
brought to New Orleans many fa-
mous European artists, who usually
remained here the entire season.
Adeline Patti, who toured Europe
successfully several times and who
was the favorite of everyone, was
just one of the many famous' sing-
ers presented-Mme. Urban, Mile,
Hitchcock, and Mlle. Calvee. Mlle.
Patti's brilliant debut, when she was
only seventeen, was made at the
French Opera House--not at Lon-
don, where she won international
fame a year' later, as it is so wrongly
stated. Among the many outstand-
ingkworks given their American pre-
miers here were: Bizet's "L'Arlesien-
ne," Massenet's "Herodiade" and
"Werther", and' Saint-Saens "Sam-
son et Delilah". After sixty years
that held war, peace, prosperity and
poverty for the South, the French
Opera House, which had made New
li-C-H-O-E-S ' Q. '
is constantly changing-first jazz,
then rag-time, the blues, boogie-
woogie, and swing, as it isnow called.
Popular American artists like George
Gershwin, composer, and Paul White-
man, conductor, have done much to
better jazz and its derivatives. Per-
haps some day it will be classed as
ffolkj music typical of the restless
spirit during the First world war
andthe depression which followed it.
In any event, jazz will leave its trace
on American music. ,
As a final word in this discussion
of New Orleans music, it can be said
that New Orleans is rebuilding its
reputation as a music center. For
ten years, the -New Orleans Sym-
phony has been giving winter concerts
to music lovers, and during this pe-
riod it has been constantly improv-
ing, both in musicianship and size.
The Opera House Association has
been giving many delightful per-
formances of grand opera with guest
singers of Metropolitan rank. The
location of the Summer Pop Con-
certs, which were given in Elk Place
just off Canal Street, has been chang-
ed to an even larger and better place
-Beauregard Square. All three of
these musical organizations have unit-
ed under the Community Music
Fund, which at present has reached
only sixty per cent of its goal of
S150,000. This winter season, New
Orleanians are looking forward to a
brilliant series of operas and con-
certs with many famous artists. No
longer will one recall ,the "good old
days", speaking of the French Opera
House, with sadness. The conversa-
tion will be of the coming perform-
ances, instead of the past ones, or
perhaps it will be of a new star from
New Orleans-indeed, the conserva-
tion might be of a new opera written
by an Orleanian.
one-half visiting musicians, and the
singers well-typed to their respective
roles. The cast included Mona Pau-
lee of the Metropolitan in the title
role, Edward Kane as "Don Jose",
Donald Dickson as, "Escamillo", and
Frances Yeend as "Micaela". The
distinguished Leopold Sachse was
stage director. "Carmen" herself
was lovely and talented, and gracious-
ly answered many well-deserved cur-
tain calls. Supporting artists, the
orchestra, ballet, costumes, and
scenery-all deserve a special word
of praise. 'As one of the world's
great masterpieces, "Carmen" is as
modern in spirit and as vital in music
today as it was the day it was writ-
ten, and its charm has not suffered
in the English translation.
Orchestra Notes i

MCMAIN'S orchestra under the di-
rection of Professor Carl L.
Kirst gave a concert on May 15
for the public. Such numbers as the
well-known "Voice of Spring" by
Strauss and a special string arrange-
ment of Dvorak's "Humoresque"
were included in the selections for
that night. "Le'Fileuse", a delightful
harp solo by Hasselman, was artistic-
ally rendered by Rosemary Stockton.
Viotti's Violin Concerto performed
by Master Carl Kirst was an added
attraction. Catherine Scblueter, the
featured vocalist, sang the very pop-
ular "It Had To Be You" and "You
Belong To My Heart". A chorus of
two hundred voices directed by Miss
Weiss gave Victor Herbert's "Thine
Alone" and Rob' Roy,Peery's "Amer-
ica, My Wondrous Land". Both pro-
grams were thoroughly enjoyed by

To the students, such a project is

enthusiasm, prepared to overcome
The first of such problems was to

It is night, and in another part of
the city, away from the shining lights
and splendid fineries, a voo-doo priest
is holding rituals for his faithful fol-
lowers. The weird and rhythmic beat-
ing of the drums fills the atmosphere
with mysterious sounds. Such cere-
monies have since ceased in the city
of New Orleans, for in Congo Square,
where once stood the voo-doo priest,

Let us go back to that part of
New Orleans in which lights shine
and carriages with well dressed
couples fill the narrow streets. To
night the French Opera House is
surrounded with fame, for the young
Jenny Lind is about to make her
debut. Thecritiques crowd with the
many guests and in its shining glory
the voice of Jenny Lind is heard
again as the 'New Orleans Opera
House takes its original form in "The
Old French Opera House."
Once again it's morning, and
seated on the steps of Jackson
Square, shadowed' by the famous
spires of the St. Louis Cathedral,
is a young colored boy with his wares
to sell. The heat of the day is tiring
and depressing, and Jackson Square,
alive with blooming azaleas, provides
an ideal resting place for the weary
child. Great is the artistic design of
the St. Louis Cathedral and to those
not fortunate to see it yet, it is a
preview of the treat in "The St.
Voices shrill loudly as flaming
colors speckle the cobble stone streets
of the Old French Market. The Old
French Market! The name itself
brings romance to those who knew it.
Here, farmers from all the surround-
ing land congregate to sell their
wares. Colored women traverse in
and out among the various pavillions
with their baskets perched high on
their heads. Although some of the
atmosphere was lost in the demolish-
ing of this center of trade, it is par-
tially recaptured in the present re-
production and in "The Old French
Market" it comes to life again.
Returning from the market one
passes the Old Absinthe House. Ex-
cept for the noise from the street all
is quiet in the Absinthe House. Ab-
sinthe today is a thing of the past,
for it is sold no more, yet in New
Orleans still stands the original Ab-
sinthe House, and the the mural "The
Old Absinthe House" one can see it
again as it stood in the height of its
Beyond the city proper, in the
swamps and bayous, hidden from the
watchful eye of the law, is New Or-
leans' first black market. Under the
canopy of silken moss, Jean Lafitte
and his pirates sell the jewels and
fineries they had previously confis-
cated. The normally law-abiding
house wives shamelessly purchase all
that their small funds allow. In their
small boats the pirates are ever ready
to flee from the law at the slightest
warning. Such a scene is pictured in
"T-he Lafittes' Black Market."
Along one side of Jackson Square
is a quaint passageway leading from
the St. Louis Cathedral to Royal St.
There are no worries in Pirate's Alley
for the fear of the pirates is over.
It was here that Lafitte hid when
pursued, and concealed from the law,
among the shadows of the alley, he
was saved many times from capture.
"Pirate's Alley". pictures this hide-
out of Jean Lafitte as it remains yet
in historic New Orleans.
A scene that marks history is the
race between the Robert E. Lee and
the Natchez. New Orleans is alive
with crowded docks and loud shouts
as the two boats begin their hostoric
race up the river to St. Louis. Many
people, young and old, cheer the
. ,- or c,
boats at their start. The race is on!
This event, only in the past of New
Orleans, is seen in the mural "The

leans has enjoyed the festive occur-
ence of Carnival. To the people of
New Orleans, it is a traditiong to the

a reality in the "Crescent City." "A
Carnival Ball" is a reproduction of a
carnival procession in the Municipal
The climax of the Carnival Season
is Mardi Gras, and the climax of the
Mardi Gras is the Comus Parade. The
festivities of the day end with one
joyous congregation to see the final
Parade of Mardi Gras. As the king
passes on his elaborate float, the
spectators shout and cheer, the sleepy
children extend open hands hoping
.to get their last souvenir of Mardi
Gras. Such a scene is the "Comus
Parade", the final mural that the art
students produced. -
After the murals were completed,
they were exhibited in Room 326 for
a few weeks. Then they were sent to
Godchaux, where they were displayed
in the Canal Street windows. After
a week there, they were sent to the
New Orleans Public Library, and
from there to the Bomber Base,
where they will remain.
For the art students it was a great
pleasure to make the murals, and if
they were able to bring a little pleas-
ure to the soldiers of the Air Force
by so doing, their purpose is indeed
accomplished. They are grateful to
the Red Cross for permitting them
to undertake the project and feel
honored that they were asked. In
their way they have tried to bring
a little cheerfulness to the recreation
room at the base, as well as to the
hearts of the soldiers there.

APRIL 12, 1945, was a day which
brought sadness to thehearts of
all Americans and many people
around the globe. The death of this
great president, who only a few
months before had, for the fourth
time, taken the oath of president of
these United States, came when the
world needed him most. A
Roosevelt entered into public life
for tl.e first time in 1910, when he
was elected to the New York State
Senate. Three years later he was
appointed Assistant Secretary of the
Navy in which office he served for
seven years. Roosevelt's true cour-
age and character were shown in
1921 when he was stricken with
paralysis and had to retire from pub-
lic life. He worked hard to regain
his health, and after only eight years
was elected governor of New York.
Then in 1932 he was elected to the
presidency for the first time.
No other American president had
served so 'long and successfully won
over crises of so many kinds. His
ideas and strength of character would
have gone far in making a 'lasting
peace at the San Francisco Confer-
1 His courage and true leadership
had brought this nation out of the
dark period of depression, and at the
outbreak of this second World War
his conduct and knowledge of for-
eign affairs held America in the spot-
light for the birth of world peace.
It was at his first inaugual,
March 4, 1933, that he uttered the
words for which perhaps he was best
known: "The only thing We have to
fear is fear itself." The truth of
this statement has been proven re-
peatedly through his terms of of-

was the average American until he
reached middle age a few years ago.
He served with the American Expedi-
tionary Force on the Western Front
during World War I and returned
home to be named to a 'minor coun-
try office. After a few years
he was surprisingly transferred 'to
the United States Senate.
As a representative- of Missouri,
Senator Truman worked diligently.
His efficient leadership of an investi-
gating committee which rendered ex-
cellent service brought him favorable
national notice. -
In 1944 he was nominated as vice-
president on the ticket with Mr.

to the splendid program on poetry,
which was presented and prepared
by the English and Music depa1't-

Poetry, one of the fine arts, appeals

An epic, a narritive poem of high
character, deals with a noble hsubject
in ainoble manner. The Greek epics
are the greatest and most famous of

the Father of the Epic, Homer.
The form of verse closest to music
is the lyric. -It ,is more "'personal"
than any other type of poetry and
the strongpersonal feelings it ex-

Free verse, a forceful type of
poetry that does not follow a regular
pattern, has no rime. It has a pleas-
ing roll and where the reader would
naturally pause, the lines end. Carol

-Other types of poetry illustrated
were the ballad, by Lily B. Staehling

for the "Reader's Digest" under the
caption of "The Most Unforgettable
Character I've Ever Met". The center
of attraction. is Senorita Broussard,
our teacher of the upper classes of
Spanish. Dolores is spending her
spare moments collecting bits of in-
formation from students and teach-
ers, as well as Seiiorita herself. It
will take about a month to complete
the-article and then it will be sent to
the Digest. We all hope it will be
published so that the world may know
of the petite teacher who has done
so much to strengthen the bonds of
friendship between, the . two- conti-
nents in the.Western Hemisphere. A, V
An amusing incident- happened
oneof Miss- B1-own's United' States-
Histdryfclasses a few days ago. ' -The
girls were 'asked to write the defini-
tion of "suffrage". The majority of
the answers proved to be boners. One
definition was: suffrage-the short-
age of money: Another stated that
suffrage is the condition in which
people are suffering. Finally the
correct answer came along Cmuch to
Miss Drown's reliefl. Suffrage is
the right to vote.
Once, again we are publishing a
Senior issue of the "Echoes", It
is fitting that we have a section de-
voted to the class play. "'And Cam'e
The Spring" is the play which has
been selected as the class play for
the graduates of June 1946. The
cast is as follows:
Mr. Jeffrey Hartman - Shirley
Elliott Hartman-Mary Lou Soule
Buzz Lindsay-Carol Shockey
Keith Nolan-Peggy Robert
Freddie North-Lucia von Gohren
Mr. Fields-Betty Grethe
Alan Fields-Rose Marie Letten
Clancy-Bobbie Sue Blanchard
Messenger Boy--Geraldine Owens
Mrs. Louise Hartmna-Bitsy Pow-
Midge Hartman-Janet Rieke
Virginia Hartman-June Ducour-
Carollyn Webster-Juanda Corbin
Gabby Allen-Beverly Guess
Mrs. Fields-Patricia Seghers
Christine Meyers-Gloria Seymour
The following has been said about
the play and I quote it to give you
an idea about the play:
"There are plays and plays about
modern American families. But only
occasionally do two authors approach
the subject with the freshness, in-
sight, and humor which characterizes
"And Caine The Spring", the new
comedy by Marrijane and Joseph
Hayes. f ' ' '
"Today, when comedy is especially
needed in the world, these two au-
thors' have 'supplied it lavishly, all'
while preserving the naturalness and
heightening thecolor of their inter-
esting characters. It has often been
said' that all good comedy springs
from character. Although "And
Came The--Spring" is full of unex-
- "vinci '-, -Il'
-r M .L
pected and highly diverting situa-
tions, the emphasis on truth and char-
acter is foremost.
"Life is made up of poignancy as
well as laughter-and what is more
filled with both these qualities than
first love? What has more universal
HPDQI? Here is a moving as well
as an -'amusing picture of a first love
which begins an avalanche of com-
plications calculated to win the' ap-
proval of even the saddest member of
"Written with sensitivity, "And
Came The Spring" skims along
blithely as it relates the amusing
story of the 'Hartmans when the
youngest girl in the family finds her-
self enormously successful ffor a
whilel in her manipulation of other
lines for her own ends. The story
builds to deft and hilarious climaxes
all the while keeping its eye on the
human traits and emotions motivat-
ing the characters." K
At the beginning of last term
twenty-five lucky girls were selected
to be Senior B representatives and
to carry on as representatives when
they became Senior A's. They have
been kept very busy throughout their
senior year, collecting ring, picture,
luncheon, and gift money. The of-
ficers of they class are, Mary Lou
Soule, presidentg Sara Jones, vice-
presidentg Jane Clay, secretaryg Jo-
anne Thornbury, treasurerg Mary
Anne Thompson and Georgia Fischer,
assistant treasurers. Since February
they had met as a club group until
April, when they were disbanded.
One of the things they accomplished
was deciding about flowers for grad-
uation. Roses were decided upon,
with pink and light green as class
colors. Then they saw to' Senior A
balloting, collecting various 'senior
material for the "Echoes", and get-
ting senior pictures ready for publi-
cation in our magazine.
Since the representatives have
been disbanded, a small group of
nine girls meet together at club pe-
riod.- These girls have counted and
drawnup the Senior ballots, discuss-
ed the class poernfand song, and geni
erally carried -on the' work 'of the
Senior class, under the guidance bf
Miss Carolyn'Steir, ourfaculty ad-
visor., These girls, together with the
whole Senior class, are looking for-
ward to' graduation, the culmination
of their high school life. il

McMain Celebrates Pan American Da
Bylsharon Mattes, '46
WHEN the Mother's Club met in
April, a. colorful tableau of the
spirit existing between the United
States and the other Latin American
countries was presented to them.
All of the participants were dress-
ed in' extremely realistic costumes
and the effect was one of much color
and vivacity. To add more to the
Spanish setting, the art classes paint-
ed huge fans of brilliant colors which
were placed at the rear of the stage
as a background. 'Spanish lanterns,
scarves, resplendent in their bright
colors, and smaller fans, also painted
by the art classes were present, cre-
ating the atmosphere of a Spanish
Katherine Schleuter really gave
the audience the feeling of Being
transported to romantic old Mexico
when, she sangv "Una Vez". The
Spanish classes sang "Ay, Ay, Ay,"
and "Chiapaneca," folk songs of
Chile and Mexico respectively. Norma
De Latte and Mellow Lesky danced
to "Chiapaneca". The "Mexican Hat
Dance" was also a great success,
Lucia Von Gohren and Valerie Gati-
pon ably performing their parts.
The final number with America
represented by the Statue of Liberty
in the background, and the Latin
American countries grouped around
her, each bearing- the flag of her
country, gave the audience the sensa-
tion of actually seeing how closely
the nations are united. On the whole,
the program was most entertaining'
and colorful. All who were present
enjoyed it, and if President, Roose-
velt, the founder, had been present
in our auditorium he too would have
been pleased with our efforts.

MCMAIN'S ninth Gym Night has
come and gone and the only re-
gret is felt by those who did not vol-
unteer to take part. The auditorium
was filled to overflow-ing and our
hearts thrilled with satisfaction as
we realized that each shining face
represented not only an enthusiastic
spectator but twenty-five cents- as
well to swell the gym fund. This
was 'our most successful gym night
both as to perforniance and finances.
Mr. Haas, President of our school
board enjoyed each minute of the
program from a -first row seat. It
is the first time that we have been
so honored by the acceptance of our
The program moved smoothly along
from the first number to the last.
Dorothy Brisbi, an outstanding Ivory,
welcomed the amidience and asked
that they join us in saluting the flag
and singing the national anthem. The
first number was a club swinging
routine which demonstrated the pro-
ficiency of the Seniors in handling
those' tricky wooden gadgets. This
number was followed by two tap
dances by the Juniors, who acquitted
themselves nobly. The' Danish gym-
nastics demonstrated conclusively
that free hand exercises are very
beneficial for physical fitness. Now
that the mothers havie seen thelir
daughters in action we are very much
afraid they'll have to help at home
with the heavy work. ,
The Sewanee River tap dance was
an outstanding example of women's
ingenuity. One of the performers,
having forgotten her mask, promptly
covered her smiling countenance with
a black hair net much to the amuse-
ment of every one concerned. Trip-
ping the light fantastic sometimes
gets to be more truth than poetry
and it is an accomplishment to be
able to do a routine properly With-
out making a mistake. We are duly
grateful that gym students have but
two feet to manage. It oftimes takes
a. whole trimester to distinguish the
left from the riht.

The sixth number on the program
consisted of tumbling, diving and
pyramid building. Nearly two hun-
dred girls took part in this demon-
stration. With the exception of one
or two girls who had previous work
in tumbling the remainder were all
taught at school and it is a distinct
tribute to their ability that they were
able to accomplish the beautifully co-
ordinated' stunts and individual ex-
hibitions. Next came the diving over
bodies which always thrills both au-
dience and performers. As a climax
to this part of the program Jackie
Karst was to pretend to dive over
nine girls. Just as she started her
run toward the girls crouched on the
floor someone blocked Shirley Sieg-
el's mother's view and when she
again saw the stunt Jackie, after
having straddled the bodies was com-
pleting a forward roll. Mrs. Siegel
is most distressed because her daugh-
ter Shirley can dive over but one
body. Shirley is having, a hard time
trying to 'convince her mother that
she saw the "positive" and "nega-
tive" parts of the stunt and com-
pletely missed the "in between". The
completion of this sixth number was
ably handled by the students who
performed five pyramids with the
smoothness and precision of profes-
sionals. The last pyramid was a
tumble down one in which all the
performers did a good job of fall-
ing flat to the mats. The girls them-
selves were worried for- fear the
audience might think it was an ac-
cident. Their fears of course were
groundless as the precision of the
performance demonstrated the per-
fect coordination of this difficult
stunt. A A
The Sidewalks of New' York, a
waltz clog in costume, strengthened
the audience's appreciation of the
light fantastic in general and Thelma
C'unningham's ability in particular.
When Thelma becomes famous and
wealthy we just know she'll endow
her Alma Mater with a gym. Two
prizes were awarded in this number
for the best costumes. They were
given to Thelma Cunningham and
The seniors put on an old- fashion-
ed square dance, She'l1 Be Coming
