Immediately the VVays and Means Committee began planning activities in order that the class might l1ave financial aid for their Washington trip. At first pencils were sold, then came the magazine con- test, "Senior Play", selling of Christmas cards and holly wreaths, followed by "Bake Foodu and candy sales, a "Silver Tea" and "Tag Day". The Seniors have enjoyed many good' times as results of their work. Throughout the year, we have tried to live up to our motto. It is an old saying that busy people are happy people. VVe have gained much practical experience and worth while knowledge besides having many exciting times. Yes, the Senior year is not only the busiest but also happiest year in High School. LISTEN IN! Station F. H. S. at Fairport, broadcasting from the old red school building on West Church Street, on September 8, 1923. The poor, little, frightened Freshmen have just entered the building. They are at a loss as to whom they belong. Every one pushes by, not taking time to even notice them. How relieved they are when they see the smiling face of Miss DeLand! Their first day in High School is quickly ended and the passing months soon bring the end of that year. Perhaps they will 'be more popular the next year. Station F. H. S. signing oif. Station F. H.

A happy crowd of Juniors l1ave just entered Miss Graves' room. Surely, they will be well protected under her guiding wing. There is something exciting taking place in the Junior Room all the time. In the first place, they organize as 1 class, Helen Hart being elected the President. Class colors, class motto, class flower, and class adviser are chosen. Miss Chesbro kindly accepts the invitation of advising the class. Stand by o11e moment please! "The Junior rings" is the main topic discussed in every corner of the building. YVhat a time! At last a beautiful gold and black onyx ring is selected! YVhen the rings arrive the class is the proudest ever, having the prettiest ring of any preceding class. The date of the Junior Prom is announced and everything is "hurry and scurry", during the remainder of the Junior Year. Station F. H. S. signing off. Station F. H. S. at Fairport broadcasting from Room 17 in the High School building on YVest Avenue on September 8, 1926. Miss Hepinstall is busily engaged in arranging the Seniors alphabetically. On September IO, 1926 the first Senior meeting is held, under the leadership of the former president, Helen Hart. Officers for the class are nominated at this time. On September 13, 1926 the second meeting is held to elect the officers. ' Their first attempts at making money for their Vtiashington trip is sell- ing red and blue pencils, on which is printed the Football schedule. The class is soon enveloped in the magazine campaign. Success is its only thought! The class is divided into opposing factions, the "Reds', and the "Blues,'g at the end of the contest the losing side, the "Blues,', enter- tain the "Reds" at a party. Great excitement everywhere! Christmas is drawing near and the Seniors scamper hither and thither selling Christmas wreaths. Christmas cards have already been sold. Such ambition is seen in this Senior class! Senior play rehearsals begin and many good times are enjoyed by the cast. Frequent parties after rehearsals occur, and one especially remains deep in their hearts. Tile candy pull at Gretchen's! Everything is be- smeared with molasses candy, feven the Seniors themselvesj. But this is only one of the good times that the Seniors enjoy. And then comes the night of the play. "Clarence" is a huge success. Of course on "Senior Day" every Senior arrives at school as a little child, each one receiving a toy from Santa Claus. - Ah! Yes! This group of boys and girls hold Baked Food Sales at Terpening's store. Then, too, the "School Chatter" is published weekly, each Senior doing his or her part to make it worth while. Then, the Seniors attempt something new and unique, "A Silver Tea." A delightful afternoon is spent by everyone, enjoying the soft music, and the delicious Hgoodiesu, furnished by the Seniors. Stand by one moment please-. Station R. S. E. at Fairport. The Senior class, accompanied by Miss Hepinstall and Miss Chesbro, is departing from Fairport for Wiashingtonl Everyone is happy and gay.

Norma Ebert, Announcer. . . 14 THE HOUR GLASS TEA LEAVES "VVhat has become of Patsy Benfont, lately?,' said one of us, one after- noon at an Alumni Tea on the Syracuse Campus. It was just before the Spring vacation, and luck being with us, it happened that several members of the 1927 class of Fairport High School were gathered together discussing the "good old daysn at F. H. S. ' Helen Hart had said, "VVhere is Patsy Benfont?"' At her suggestion, I drained one of our tea cups and proceeded to discover his accomplishments. "Ah,', I said, "his dream must have been realized. At present he is a lawyer in New York City. The leaves predict a 1'OSy future for him. Very soon he will acquire great wealthf, So that was what had become of Patsy. Good fortune seemed to have greeted him at every turn. - At once I thought of the Bramer twins, "Dad" and. "Lew", VVhen I looked at the leaves of the other cup, I found "Dad" the varsity coach at Yale. He had proved successful and had brought his team through vic- toriously. Closely connected with his life, I found that of "Lew,'. He was the football coach at Colgate, where he was making a record, too. Both of them, still masters at their calling, were promising to become better each year. It had been two years since I had heard from Gretchen Edd-yg her ac- complishments proved most interesting. ,VVhen I had drained the cup, I found that she, too, was an individual of prominence. In the educational sphere, she had made herself nationaly famous as head of the department of English in the High Schools of Philadelphia. A higher position would soon be offered her which she would not accept because "her heart ruled' her headf' Carl Young' still seemed to find favor in her eyes, but I could very clearly discern a rival. VVho would be victorious? Time alone would tell that. Pondering a moment, I thought, "VVho else in that class had desired to teach?" Oh, yes, Doris Crellin. She had wanted to teach Latin. The last that any of us had known of her was her graduation from college-"magna cum laudef, Certainly her present activities would prove interesting. Yes, I found her teaching, and soon to become a professor at the University of Rochester. Then I found a fact rather unpleasant. VVithin a year, she would be seriously injured in some way. VVhat would it be? A serious automobile accident? She would be taken to a hospital where the doctor, Charles White, would be present. Then I saw three figures standing near him. One of these nurses seemed to be very tall. Doubtless she was Iona Diedrich. Then there were two others. VVho could' they be? VVhy I.orrena VVesterman and Mabel Brown, of course. Most certainly Doris would be well nursed. Then there was an orderly, rather tall and dark. VVhat young man could that be? Harry Mosher, said one of our group, and that solved the riddle. There together I found five members of our class. But just as in story books, she would be well, for the leaves told me that she would be traveling over many lands and seas. Still as true a friend as ever was Elberta Reed, with whom Doris would travel. If they were still as eager to travel and to see interesting places as they were on their VVashington trip, the ourney will hold many rare things in store for them. But they were not the only ones who had aspired' to become teachers, for the memory of .Ianet Reamer's longing came to me. I drained the cup and eagerly looked for a sign. There is wasg it was evident that she was not an English teacher, but an editor of a New York City paper. Could it be the "New York Sun", or the "New York Timesu? She surely was having THE HOUR GLASS 15 an opportunity to show the ability for which Miss Hepinstall l1ad so often lauded her. As we sat on Crouse College Hill, calling to mind the names of our class- mates, it was difficult to conceive of the separation of that group. There were five of us gathered, Helen Hart, the speaker of the afternoon, Betty Harris, now an instructor of athletics at East High in Rochester, Effie 'Warner, whose art studio in New York was fast becoming famous, and Tom Pierce, a wealthy broker on tl1e New York Stock Exchange. To make the group more complete, we needed Leigh Greenfield. At Betty's suggestion I drained another cup that we might know of I.eigh's career. It proved un- usually interesting. From the leaves, I gleaned these facts. Following his scholastic trend in Fairport High School, he had become a noted writer, but as the years had passed, it had proved a great strain, so he had, as Emerson advises, searched for a way by which he might become a public benefactor. He had become interested in the method of garbage disposal in New York City, and by clever acting, had acquired the position as head of the department. His methods had greatly improved the conditions, and it was very possible that he would attain national fame. ' Then, who was it always characterized as "Romeo and Julietw? Of course, it had been Norma and "Hi", Hiram seemed to have become all that his heart could desire. At the present time- he was teaching science in one of the large High Schools of VVashington, D. C., following in the foot- steps of Mr. Taylor, he was guiding his basketball team through to victory. Closely connected with his work was that of Norma. She had been teaching for several years, but because of her stenographic abilities she would soon change her occupation. "Toni, named the various basketball heroes of 1927. Wle found that there were two, Stuart VValling and Bert. Goyette, whose interests we did not know. I dra-ined a cup for Stuart, to find that he was on the ocean. He had been on several voyages, and tl1e tea leaves predicted many more. A high position would soon be offered him which would mean great wealth. That was interesting, especially the latter part of tl1e prophecy. Good luck to you, Stuart! VVhen the cup had been turned, we found Bert, the head of a large de- pa-rtment store in Baltimore. He had proved very successful, for his methods of buying and selling were making him famous. His secretary proved to be one of our class, Ivy Hoffman. It seemed that she would soon leave that position, returning to Fairport to be married. She had' three associates, I think they must have been Hazel Ewing, Ruth Bendschneider, and Ruth Deuel. Hazel was soon to reserve a higher position, perhaps Ivy's place. Certainly our class was well represented in all of these important oe- cupations, but one still remained, farming. I drained a cup for Norman Diedrich, and we discovered that he was engaged in sheep raising in Australia. He was making ra-pid progress, since his modern methods of farming were of great assistance to those of the same occupation. So there they all were. The members of the class were scattered over the world, each one accomplishing his life work in such a way that its value would be lasting. VVhen the five of us sepa-rated, to return to our various offices of life, we felt duly proud of the Class of 1927, a class of which our Alma Mater may ever be proud. ' -Ruth E.

George Payne Nobody but Carl Young could have successfully played the part of "Mr, Wheeler," the prosperous business man, who is interrupted by l1is dashing young wife and her step-children, namely, Effie VVarner as "Cora" and our well known comedian, Stuart Walling, as "Bobby". Both acted as if the drama had been written to correspond to their particular personal- ities. They have come with patient "Miss Pinney," Gretchen Eddy, splen- didly taking the part of their governess, to interview "Mr. Wheeleru con- cerning family complications. Helen Hart, as his able secretary, "Mrs, Martyn," shows true co-operation in helping him settle these intricacies. In the office is a disabled soldier, serious Charles VVhite, whose liver has been wounded in the army, much to the curiosity of inquisitive "Cora." George Payne, so dashing and debonair, lived the part of "Hubert Stem," the grass widower with whom silly "Coral, imagines she is in love and who calls to see "Miss Pinneyu. Mr. Stem is annoyed. by the presence of "Clarence" who is continually tinkering at the piano, having been employed by "Mr. Vlfheeleru because he could drive mules without swearing. In- dignant "Cora', and the flapper wife "Mrs. XVhceler,', cleverly acted by Betty, begin to take a deep interest in the ex-soldier. Much distinction is added to the VVheeler home by the services of their typical English butler, "Dinwiddie,', played with much dignity by Leigh Greenfield and their quiet maid, "Della", Janet Beamer, who performed the household duties very calmly, but oh-how she adored' "Clarence" Scornful "Miss Pinneyv and "Clarence" have a rather heated discussion which is interrupted by the entrance of "Bobby," Complications arise as to 'KClarence's" last name. George Payne cleverly played the part of ex- cited "Hubert Stem", who calls and is snubbed by childish "Cora", much to the amusement of "Bobby", a typical "kid" brother who is always teasing his sister. "Mr. Stem" discloses some astonishing information concerning "Clarence" "Mrs. Wheeler's" attitude is changed toward Mr. Wheeler and "Miss Pinney". "Violet" our sweet, patient Gretchen and "Clarence", so interested in botany and zoology, decide to take an "important step." Clarencels letter arrives which reveals his identity. "Cora" sighs, "Oh, Cl-ar-ence".

STUDENTS' COUNCIL LETERM AR Y n 1 l u 34 THE HOUR GLASS COLOR I am so glad of the color of things. Night of course is blue, And morning red and yellow, like a tulip. Babies are blue, flecked with white, Because of their eyes, A voice I know is the green of il breaking wave. Callers that outstay their time Get shiny brown. Church-going is purple. The dull flat purple of a prayer-book marker. There is another purple though, Radiant, rosy. I have seen it once, in the Northern light, I think it must be Religion. Adventure is golden, Because of the sun on brass helmets. Love is White, glowing. I know what I'll do! I'll gather them all together And make a stained glass Window of them Inscribinig' it thus: To the Glory of God In Loving Memory of My Days on Earth. -Phoebe Crosby Allnut. A HARVEST TIME Harvest time is here. The corn is already being cut and arranged in large, yellow shocks. Gleaming forth from 'between the dry, rusting leaves of their mother plant are orange-yellow pumpkins. Deep colored clusters of elderberries hang heavily down from the bushes which grow thickly along the ridge. Large bouquets' of goldenrod are seen in the fence corner. The very air itself suggests fall. It is cool, crisp, and clear. T'he huge maple, which stands on the side of the hill, has been touched in various spots by the frostg even the brown earth, which has been freshly plowed, lends a mellow note to the picture, full of thought and beauty. Everything suggests plenty.

B NEW LIFE When faith is doubting as winter lingers, unwilling to depart, and we spy in a sheltered nook the first snow-drop bell, a Crocus or even a dandelion. hope springs anew. The message is clear, spring is at hand. A little longer, winter with its frosts and! snows will be gone. Yes, tl1e robin has arrived, followed by a happy throng acclaiming the joyous tidings that spring has come. Spring, real spring with its radiant beauty can only be appreciated by us in the north who find an ample compensation for the long winters. With its changeful landscape, rich in bursting buds, spring is indeed a happy season. Vegetation awakes, refreshed from a long winter sleep, yawns, stretches itself, springs up and orderly commences the season's work. Roots, never asleep, become wide awake and energetically active, drawing from the earth, water and food which are transported through organized tissues to the growing points of tree and shrub. Th-e sap commences to rise, and like warm blood coursing through the veins, gives to a twig, shoot, and stem a fresh, healthy hue. Growth commences. The bud scales which have so valiantly protected the vital points of leafy shoots are thrown aside. I-Iastily by some plants and tardily in others, and they oft-en become tinted and con- spicuous. Where the flowers take precedences over foliage the naked stems are rapidly filling with blossoms, - 36 THE HOUR GLASS VVith Mother Nature insistent on helping all, it is very easy to have a garden filled with beauty in the Spring. A variety of bulbous plants are tl1e first to strew the earth with spring blossoms. Snowdrops with their white bells and crocuses, white, yellow, blue, and lavender, star the ground before the grass turns green. Yes, life assumes a totally different aspect, a new world dawns,-a world richer and fairer than lived before. -D. Bramer, '27. TEACUPS In a cool and quiet blue room in the stately old palace at Torres, where there is a pot filled with brilliant red poppies nodding in the window, twins were born, in the grey dawn, to the Princess Anne. As she lay in the still- ness, with a soft bundle on each arm, the lonely little future queen closed her eyes, and a hot tear stole out from beneath one tight-closed eyelid. It rolled from the lash, dropping to rest on the red little forehead of one of the babes. Outside she heard a robin sing, then she felt a soft touch on her arm, and opened her eyes. A severe lady-in-waiting stood' beside the mas- sive bedg her face softened as she saw the tear-filled eyes of the young princess. "The woman whose presence you requested is here, my lady," she said. The eyes of the princess widened, and, with a startled look about her, she said, "But she must come at once, you will immediately have tea served. 'Be sure to have the tea unstrained, for the tea-leaves are very necessary todayf' The lady-in-waiting withdrew, so the girl again. closed her eyes. No sound disturbed her, but a sense of being watched forced her eyes open. Standing in the place so recently vacated, was the oddest little old woman imaginable. Her untidy hair streamed out from under her cap, giving her an eerie appearance, which was further heightened by her thin arms and long bony back. The little princess stared rather rudely at l1er, but she was to be pardoned, for it was really a pardonable offense. A soft- footed maid broke the ensuing silence by the rattling of teacups, when the old woman spoke. 'f.The teacups rattled, and that is a good omen," she said. "Fill the cup half-full, my dearf' turning to the maid, "and leave the tea clear." VVith this, she lapsed again intovsilence, which lasted until the tea was served, one cup to her, and a second to the princess. Then, "drink it slowly to the dregs," she said, following her own il'lSt1'l1Ctl0IlS. The quiet blue room was again silent, while the awe-strickeneyes of the princess re- mained fixed on this strange apparit.ion. The tea finished, the old woman took the cups and, placing them on the table, peered into them, her sunken eyes widening at what she saw. "These children," she said at last, "are the favorites of fortune, but you must be careful. The one on the left, upo11 whose forehead the tear fell from your eye fthe princess stared' in amazement, the tear had long ago disappearedj will become one of the wisest and most thoughtful women your nation has ever known, for that tear went through, and lodging in the very midpoint of 'her brain, become a pearl of thought and memory. The other will be a spoiled child, an artist either in music or in sculpture, but in both, beware the effect of color. The wise woman will incline toward morbidity and sensitiveness, and the artist may be temperamental, but unless these traits are complemented by sedatives, you will find yourself in a great deal of trouble." The old woman turned from the cups, and stared at the infants, THE HOUR GLASS 87 with a toothless grin on her face. Then her gaze turned to the mother. The room grew dim, and strange shadowy figures become evident. The children had grown, reaching promising young-womanhood. Need- less to say, although the prophecies of the fortu-ne teller had seemed most important at the time of the twins' birth, out of sight, out of mind, and the giddy young princess, soon absorbed in the social life and the affairs sur- rounding the court, had forgotten them until they were forceably brought to her mind. Helene, the sensitive child, had become so wise that she was known over the whole world, but because of her lack of self-confidence, grew morose and fond of her own company, spending much of her time in dim and musty old libraries. As a result, she looked unlike an earthly child, her almost transparent skin and straight blonde hair making her seem like a visitor from another world. The doctors had noticed this with increasing alarm, and had asked the princess to care for her before it was too late, but the ceaseless round of society kept her busy, and the warnings were forgotten. As for Felice, art had absorbed some of her time, but much of it was spent in the pursuance of her own desires. From babyhood a spoiled child, her arrogance had developed as she grew older, and at last her frequent fits of temper had become almost unbearable to her associates. Her mother paid no attention to reports, court life was too absorbing. It was exactly one month before their twentieth birthday that the twins disappeared. The court was frantic, and the weak-minded mother became hysterical as the days passed and nothing was discovered. And yet the girls were in far better hands than they had ever been in their whole lives, for the gypsy, finding th-ern, for once together, had quietly taken them to her small home on the top of a hill. There they lived healthful lives, breathing in the pure fresh air, lying long hours on the grass in the sun, listening to the songs of birds, and tending the flowers which grew so pro- fusely about the place. Indoors, Helene was induced to love bright colors, so her frocks and room were in cheerful browns, reds and yellows. Felice was charmed by the soothinlgg quietness of greens, blues, an.d purples, grow- ing more unselfish every day. Many happy days did the three spend to- gether, but at last the time came for them to depart. Early on the morning of the :birthday of the twins, the castle was awakened by a shrill scream. VVondering what new mischief was afoot, everyone hurried into some vestage of clothing, and rushed to ascertain. the nature of the disturbance. Outside the bedchamber of the twins stood a wild.ly gesturing princess, in the stately bedl lay the innocent causes of the excite- ment, the missing girls, and beside the bed stood a withered old woman, drinking tea from a teacup! The twins were once again as God had planned them, merry and healthy. The blue room grew bright again, a ray of early morning sunshine lay across the bed. One of the babies stirred, the mother opened her eyes. The withered old woman was just going out the door. She held the door ajar while she turned to say, I'You have had a vision of the future as it might beg you see what will effect your children, let this be a warning to you!"-and the door closed softly behind her. The red poppies glowed cheerfully in the sung outside, beneath a placid blue sky, seated on a branch of a gnarled old pine tree, a robin sang shrilly. - y -Ruth wang, as. 38 THE HOUR GLASS MY IDEAL CHARACTER Discussion of character has always been rampant. Men may be con- ceived whose character has been impeccable. Men are known whose associa- tion is avoidable by all classes because of the repugnance caused by the mention of his offenses. In a world of such malice and corruption, as is so frequently discovered, it seems impossible to depict a character whose virtues are ideal and whose vices are non-existant with his being. In considering the constituency of such a person, tl1e first thought which is clear in the mind is that observance of right and the practice of truth must be most eminent. But to be able to visualize the correct course to fol- low and to immediately set out for the goal one must possess an intuition of his own, and a strong will governed by sagacity. Guidance of the mind is a necessary feature in the moulding of a man's character. Individuality, per- sonality, even ideas seemingly peculiar to "toute les monde" are necessary to procure the appeal which a man must have to endure other intelligent men to coerce his opinions. Inpetuousity intermixed with a w-ell defined deliberation should be one of the greatest assets one can possess. Self-control is an achievement, good temper and determination are to be cultivated While cheeriness and a touch of morbidness is ever appreciated. To be gentle and mild with no power of reproof of lusty pugnacity, when occasion arises is most dangerous to a person of otherwise irreproachable character. Moreover, force in carrying out a determined course is most imperative. A man who can command the respect of all types of people, one who can and does follow the dictates of the right, one who is ever ready to be of assistance and eager to forward the cause of general amelioration is cer- tainly one to be admired-an ideal character. -Gretchen Eddy, '27. "THE HOURS" At five o'clock in the morning, people are usually asleep, perhaps dreaming, perhaps just sleeping calmly. A few ventureso-me souls, how- ever, find joy in becoming acquainted with nature, sometimes to hunt, to fish or just to walk. These people are joyous, happy, carefree for the moment. This early hour makes them feel virtuous, ambitious. They stride along at a lively pace, chest high, head thrown back. The early morning breeze blows their hair from their faces. Seven-thirty! The working classes are rapidly hurrying to their daily work. All seen tired with a sleepy weariness. They shiver in the fresh morning breeze, clasp their coats more tightly around them, hurry a bit more quickly. On their faces one sees determination, necessity, drudgery. They are all clothed in sombrc colors, worn garments which make them feel sober. Ten o'clockl Women are leisurely sauntering down to the market, baskets on their arms, clean in bright-colored house dresses. They walk along, intent on their business of shopping, searching for bargains. They are cheery, good-natured, have a kindly "Good morningf' "Fine day today" for everyone. The street fairly lnnns with their gossip. Venturesome dogs THE HOUR GLASS 39 run about, nosing into everything. These people are prosperous, occupied with the task at hand. Eleven! There comes a lull in the day's occupation. Shopkeepers rest before the noon rush. Housewives are preparing lunch. e A quiet pervades the air, theucalm before the storm. Noon! Shrieking of whistles, honking of cars. Roller skates. Bicycles. VVhizzing automobiles. Hurrying throngs. Merry calls. Everyone rushes home to lunch. A smile greets each person. They are free from work for one brief hour. Schoolchildren laugh and talk, almost running home. The school house is emptied in five minutes. In about ten minutes, the streets are deserted again. The world is silent while the people eat. Three o'clock. The earth wakes once more, after its rest from one to three. School children, laden with books, lazily saunter along, or drearily wend their way home. Dogs are numerous. Many 'baby carriages are promenaded by devoted mothers or school girls. VVomen, dressed for after- noon, meet to chat with one another. Small boys play marbles or "catch", along the street. A buoyancy lifts the weary souls. Five P. M.! Tired people drag weary bodies to their destination. Be- lated boys and girls hurry home to help get dinner. Tired working folk, grimy with toil, trudge on the hard pavement. A sick sun throws its dying rays on the multitude. Weary feet tramp, tramp, tramp to a listless tune. Few are the cheery words of greeting. Seven P. M.! Strength is gradually returning. After a luscious dinner at six, they are feeling more comfortable now.' One sits down to read the evening paper, to enjoy the radio, to be with one's children. The clatter of dishes from the kitchen has almost ceased. A few moments of respite are granted to the work-man. Eight-thirty! Now, one is dressed, prepared for the theater or dance. Oneis spirit is aroused: again, life has returned. Couples are sauntering along the dark streets. Large cars roll by silently, occupied by well-dressed ladies and gentlemen. A spirit of entertainment elevates them. Eleven P. M.! Theater goers are returning from the play, discussing it disinterestedly. Throngs fill the streets- and congest traffic. Gorgeous opera cloaks speck the darkened crowd. Hurrying taxi-cabs rush madly down the street. Luxurious sedans ride maj estically along the avenue. An intellectual air prevails, bringing refinement. One A. M.! Joyous parties wend their way homcward, singing and dancing. Hilarious groups disturb the dignified silence of the night. A late car rattles vociferously on its way. Disheveled: merry-makers carouse on the highways. Heavy-lidded happiness attempts to keep awake. Three A. M.! The lull before the storm comes. All is at rest and is peaceful. The last straggler has stumbled into his abode, the last light has been extinguished. Mother Nature gives a sigh of relief and rests before the next day's onslaught. The birds are quiet, the animals are still. The earth holds its tongue for two brief hours. Sleep is the ruler of the universe. T -Helen Hart, '27, I-. f .h ,WJ 3.3 .

For you see he's unfamiliar With today, and cannot read What its strange, mysterious sign posts Tell of ways and where they leadg And his heart upbraids him sorely, Though he did not mean to stray When he fell asleep last evening And abandoned Yesterday. He left many tasks neglected That he really should have doneg And he fears he's lost some battles That he fairly might have won. So he would like to turn time backward To retrieve them if he may- Will not someone kindly tell him Where's the road to Yesterday? -Leigh Greenfield, '27, THE STAR Awakening, I found myself Not in the checkered shade of afternoon WVhere I had paused, in hopes that I could see The dancing fairy and the elfg But in a spot unlighted by the moon, A spot so dark it fairly frightened me. I tried to find my way, But all was dark and coldg No light could penetrate that lonely dale. If only God would send the light of day!

Playfully scattered by the October breeze, And the fields be shocked with corn, Under a blanket of frost, each morn, Leaving each blade enswathed in white, Until the sun begins his flight Across the heaven, in sparkling array, Retreating then, at the close of day,E This is the Autumn as we all know The season before the fatal snow. -Bert Goyette, '27. THE GARDEN Old gardens have a language of their own, And mine sweet speech to linger in the heart. A goodly place it is and primly spaced, With straight box-bordered paths and squares of bloom Bay-trees by rows of antique urns tell tales Of one who loved! the gardens Dante loved. Magnolias edge the placid lily-pool, And flank the sagging seat, whence vista. leads To blaze of rhododendrons banked in green. Azaleas by the scarlet quince flame up Against the lustrous grape-vines trellised high, To pigeon-cote and old brick wall where hide First snow-drops and the bravest violets. A place of solitudes whose silences Enfold the heart as an unquiet bird. -Gertrude Huntington McGriffert ax., ilk 1' ,ix wfyqlvy www qi ,4 W1 in wmv-ll-1 vrnv- I '.-I-1f:f-- I :ual .

Every bobbed head turns over for another half hour, snatching a last sweet breath of sleep before a hasty dressing, racing the gang at eight o'clock when the dining room door closes on ill belated students. "Chapel ratesi' are made, and we soon rush forth from Albright House in anticipation of the half hour which starts the day at Smith. Chapel ap- peals to me 'because of its vested choir, and the three organs. It establishes a sense of relationship with the rest of the students. Through the rest of the day the Freshmen hurry to keep up with the upperclassmen who have long since become used to the routine. Among the two thousand girls there is a representative of every type. They come from every state in the Union while two in our class are from Russia and Japan. A Freshman is always able to find some congenial classmates to know.- The government at Smith is by the Student Body entirely. This is actually carried out in every detail. One of the best examples is the smoking problem which last fall was entrusted to the students with the result that there was no smoking on the campus or in the houses. lt is allowed in the tea rooms and in Paradise Woods. To the entering student the kindness of the upperclassmen is long to be remembered. Each Freshman has a Senior adviser as well as an adviser for each group. But the friendly spirit is not confined to those delegated es- pecially for the purpose. Every upperclassman is so interested in having the incoming student like Smith that she assumes a responsibility toward the Freshman. -Elizabeth Merriman, ,30. is LUCK A FACTOR IN ATHLETICS? Score tied, teams fighting desperately for the lead, two minutes to go, one minute thirty seconds, a forward sinks a very difficult shot or an end picks up a fumble, and scores tl1e winning touchdown. Some people call tl1is luck, but to the real robust athlete there is no luck. The best team usually wins in the end. In the midst of excitement and fumbling for the lead, the spectators fail to notice the skilled and well-developed play. To a well-coached, well-spirited team, exuberant with a string of vic- tories and a large score, the word "luck,' is a complete stranger. A great number of teams, who lose to opponents inferior to them, openly lay the blame to breaks of the game or hard luck, but it is the circumstances in which they enter the game with their minds awhirl and bulging with con- fidence or with fear of losing the game. Many people, having seen a basketball team defeat their opponents With ease, will at once conceive the idea that the players have had great luck or have been playing with imaginary horseshoes around their necks. This is not the case, for the winners have been exercising their best plays, their de- THE HOUR GLASS 48 termination, their courage and have been physically fit to play the game. At the same time the losers have probably had defeat in their minds or loss of courage and have not lived up to the rules of an athlete. As an example of what people call bad luck let us imagine a basketball player throwing "foul shot." The ball hits the rim, rolls around a few times and drops outside. Is it bad luck, the breaks of the game, or the inability of this particular lad to make the baskets? If you were to ask him the cause of his trouble, he would undoubtedly say, "My eye was oft"', and naturally would not make 'em on this particular night. Athletics require determination, courage, physical fitness, mental alert- ness and experience. Without them. the games will be lost. With them a team will win steadily, gain confidence, and become thoroughbreds, all of which is something that all the luck in the World could not make them. -Lewis Bramer, '27.

W ra 44 THE HOUR GLASS ARMISTICE DAY ASSEMBLY A bell rang! Simultaneously all the students rose to their feet, and for two minutes, during the ringing of the bells outside, there was perfect quiet in the auditorium. For a second time a bell rang. In silence, the pupils resumed their seats. Mr. Harold Par-ce sang, with no announcement, "There Is No Death." After this soul-stirring song, the Rev. Mr. Lyttle, of the Episcopal church, spoke to us on the meaning of the "Armistice". His talk held his interested audience spellbound. . He told us about France, the war, the soldiers, his experience in the army. There are four points which we must learn from this great war and apply to our own lives: the adventure of death, a realization of what we have done for the good of mankind, whether we have accomplished any- thing in our short span of yearsg secondly, the benefit of discipline, making our bodies fit, being prepared for an opportunity, disciplining ourselves that We do not become morally flabby, thirdly, the spirit of self-sacrifice, forgetting ourselves for the good of others, becoming participants in this great war against disease, greed, hate, poverty, sacrificing our life itself that the world may be a better place in which to liveg and fourthly, the fighting spirit, never give up, fight to the end, have that idea of scrappiness, not picking a quarrel, but enduring to the end. Mr. Lyttle's -address will long remain in tl1e minds of the students of Fairport High School, guiding them to higher endeavors. Y Another solo by Mr. Parce concluded our program. HOROSCOPE Under the auspicious urisdiction of Mars and Venus a great combination of manly cliaracteristics has been bestowed. upon one of the members of the Senior class. ' Although quiet in his achievements and unassuming in his triumphs, this young warrior has coped successfully with the huge difficulties of his school career. Aside from some very obvious talents, he possesses one which has only recently been discovered-art. It was with some surprise that he was caught in the act of adding an appealing head to the picture of the "Victory of Smaothracen, in Study Hall seventh period. Such accomplishments are strengthened not a little by an unobtrusive but effectual administration of executive duties.

Under this sway, jealousy may easily develop between men and women competing in school activities, which may serve as a warning to this boy to beware of Janet Reamer, with whom he is liable to come in contact.

THE HOUR GLASS 49 1926-1927 BASKETBALL HISTORY The gridiron heroes after having a hundred per cent record, left the pigskin and field, which resembled a wavering sea of mud, to enwrap themselves in the "red and bluen of basketball. A magic star must have shown upon the basketball career of Fairport High School, which developed little stars out of every player. Headed by the greatest star, "Dad', Bramer, now peacefully enjoying an all-state guard berth, the maroon came through with a crashing victory of 40-17 over the Avon quint. Coach Taylor said that was fair Work for an opening night. The following week found' F-airport High taking defeat with a smile at the hands of Greigsville. CThe reserves startedj. The score was 26-16. East High walked. away with a hard earned victory on Decemlber 3, 1926. Coach Fowle of East High did not think it safe to use "subs' ,in this game. The score was 19-11. By the next game, the jinx was entirely out of the "Red and,Blue." When the whistle sounded, we were enjoying a lead of 48-14 over the Char- lotte outfit. These preliminary games to the league schedule put Fairport in excellent shape for the opener. Spencerport came here, powerful and strong on December 17, 1926, only to- be showered' under an avalanche of 25-12 score. The Shop School of Rochester and the U. of R. Freshmen both annexed narrowqvictories over the "Red and Bluei' in close contests. This last defeat marked the Fairport quint's beginning of a remarkable string of twenty straight victories. We took Webster High into camp for a 40-16 victory as the commence- ment night- for the record season. Fairport High School established athletic relations with Ithaca High School. - The boys had a glorious time there, they were hospitably welcomed, but they just couldn't lose. The score was 29-17. Then came the contest of the season on January 21, 1927. Our most welcomed rivals, East Rochester High, came here to avenge last year's defeats but' fell on the short end of a 15-10 score. Relationships were athletically arranged between Geneva and Fairport. The affair was celebrated by a basketball contest on January 29, 1927 in which 'we were on the long end- of a 34-18 score. The star quint next traveled to Irondequoit, where Coach Taylor's outfit turned in the seventh straight league game. The score was 31-14. No team this season has the privilege of boasting two victories over the "Red and Bluef, 'fTech Highv tried but failed with a 58-25 score. U. of R. Freshmen, with an earlier victory to 'brave them, came the closest to a second victory of any other quint. The score was 27-26. Another new team added to the Fairport schedule was Brockport. Though they were much older, they succumbed. under a score of 42-24. The Pittsford game proved to be a rival contest. This game will long be remembered because of "Dad" Bra'mer's high scoring record of twenty- five points in a single -contest. He only played three quartersg his score was almostitwice that of his entire opposing team. The score of this game was 39-14. A By virtue of another victory over Pittsford on March 4, 1927, by a close score of 20-17, the maroon ended the league season with a clean slate of ten victories and no defeats. Far more glorious, however, was the privi- lege of competing in the Sectional Tournament in Rochester of which Fair- port High is champion. 50 THE HOUR GLASS A banquet was held previous to the first game of the tournament at which lots were drawn for the purpose of matching the teams. Fairport drew Greiigsville High, who at that time was favored to win. That evening, however, the boys had an easy time, winning by a score of 39-33. At half time Fairport led 27-15. lt was not until the last minutes of play, while a tremendous Fairport crowd, composed of students and townspeople, cheered happily with victory in sight, that the "Red and Blueu slackened and Greigs- ville rolled up the score to a closer game. A smile played oyously on thc lips of Coach Taylor. V , V . The next game was with East High. They were favored because of their previous 19-11 victory. But the iron boys of Fairport, with thein. iron defense, conquering blood and a loyal group of Fairport rooters, sur- prised the spectators by handing the orient a pretty 21-14 defeat. Only two East High players scored from the field. VVhile Fairport was enjoying successive victories over Greigsville and East High, Corning Academy was doing the same to Lyons and Canandaigua. The following week both teams clashed. The athletes of both the checker and maroon teams were in excellent condition. One of the largest crowds to ever attend a. tournament was present. Many were disappointed. First one team, then the other would take the lead, and the victory waswuncertain for either team. But when the final gun barked, Corning was trailing at the short end of a 16-13 count. "Dad" Bramer, star guard' and Captain for Fairport, led the tournament scoring with 32 points in three games. A "Buffalo" or K'Bust" 'was the Fairport slogan and they never busted. At Buffalo the athletes from eight teams- were received with abanquet at wl1icl1 time the teams were matched by drawing lots. Oswego High, twice conquerors of Aquinas Institute, opposed the maroon in thc preliminary. lt was a thriller and many Fairport cheerers, who came on the special train, made the auditorium resound. VVe qualified for the semi-finals by de- feating Oswego 28-22. f Yonkers faced. the "Red and Blue" next. But it was a different story. The Fairport boys outscored the Yonkers outfit in field baskets but failed on the charity throws from the fifteen-foot mark. The score at tl1e end of the game was 25-22. This broke Fairportis winning string of twenty victories. The Fairport followers came home with sorrow in their 'hearts but a smile on their lips. Our boys had played clean' and' lost, just as they had played clean and won. A ' For the last time for Fairport High, the Bramer twins, Goyette, VValling and Aldrich adorned themselves in the outfit they had learned- to lglove and respect, in the annual interclass contest. The 'Seniors lost to a team com- posed of Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen,,1'7-11. VVith this last contest the doors closed upon the 1926 and 1927 glorious basketball, season of Fairport High. Y - j THE HOUR GLASS 51 OUR HONORABLE COACH Coach VValter Taylor broke into the list of champion coaches in two years. It was two years ago that a tall, well built, handsome man was in- troduced to the athletes of Fairport High. In simple form Fairport High School was fortunate to secure a coach who had access to all types of athletics. He came from the University of Rochester and introduced that fair, square and clean brand of -playing of which he can boldly boast. In two years of 'football coaching his team only lost one game. In two years of basketball his team traveled to the semi--finals at Buffalo. In baseball he developed the "Bramer twins" into champion pitchers. The outstanding feature of Coach Taylor is his ability to impart his athletic knowledge and to maintain an orderly squad. Coach Walter Tiaiylori heads the list of Fairport High School coaches. During his short time with us he has become the ideal of all those he teaches and he has won the honest support and acknowledgment of all the townspeople.

The first call for practice found the Fairport campus dotted with brave, strong, and ambitious recruits. Some were veterans, while others thought that football was the game in which you throw the ball through a basket. It was- 'ai task for Coach Taylor to make football stars from these youths. That glorious day that Coach Taylor selected! the lineup for the opening game with Palmyra, he had no vision of a championship team. His huskies just ran through the Palmyra defense at will. Half time found the "subs" doing their good work. The game ended with the Red and Blue team on the long end of a 21-0 score. 1 Fairport traveled' to LeRoy the next week, to meet the husky boys in a fast contest. We had things our own way during the game, for we turned in 'ai 19-0 victory--the first in twelve years over the LeRoyans. Webster was next. They offered "stiff" resistance but succumbed at the end. The score was 12-0. By this time the air rang with, "No one scores against Fairportg we waint a clean slate 1" Headed by Captain Gears the football team continued the good work against th-e much older and heavier U. of R. Freshman team. "Nellie" Hogan mana-gled to find' an opening in an off tackle play and ran fifty-five yards for a touchdown. "Dad" kicked the goal. Palmyra made a bold attempt to avenge their first defeat at the hands of Fairport High but failed by a long margin of 31 points, while the best they could do wa-s to come within twenty-five yards of the untouched goal line. ' VVarsaw, the only team to defeat Fairport the preceding year, by a thirty- four to six count, arrived in Fairport with the intentions of repeating. Their attempt fell short before the onrushing, powerful local team. VVhen the gun barked, the score was 50-Q. Coach Taylor said that was fair work. The next team on the maroon schedule was Medina. This team came to meet Fairport High with a clean slate of four straight victories and no de-feats. Medina, however, had been scored on by other teams. Fairport not only boasted of a clean slate but also of an untouched goal line. The contest was interesting but one-sided. Medina limped off the field with a 40-0 loss on their record. y g I 54 THE HOUR GLASS The final game of the s-eason with Albion High found Coach Taylor's 'eleven in excellent shape. On a wet, slippery field, which made the going diH'icult, the local team executed their promised wish with a 25-0 win. This last game of football marked the last appearance of most of the team. As the "gridiron" players marched into the dressing room of their beloved Alma Mater, the door shut behind them. A "We will try to do the same in basketball," said the boys as they finished the most remarkable football season in the history of Fairport High School.

Barrel slats tied to their legs and uniforms filled with straw or rags were the only means of withstanding the hard, intensive shocks. No helmets or shoulder pads!

I I I 1' f 9- of ALUMNI 60 THE HOUR GLASS SCHOOL DAYS OF 1883 Having been requested to write some Hreminiscence of my school days in Fairport High School, my mind wanders 'back to the beginning of my at- tendance there. I well remember my first day in High School. There were three terms of school in those days. My parents had just moved from Penfield here and I entered. the first of the second term. I was the youngest and smallest pupil there. I obtained a back seat the first day butt in about a week I was advanced to next to the front seat which I retained. There were about 100 pupils in the High School, seated two in a seat, which was in the east room on the second floor. After my name was taken, I was sent in to the Professor, who examined me to see how well ,I knew the subjects I had taken and then assigned to classes, which however was acontinuation of what I had had before. There were only two teachers in the High School at that time, J. R. Gordon, Professor, and Miss Emerson, Preceptress. She had charge of the students and had her recitations in the same room. The Professor had the room under the b-elfry, where he had classes continually all day, except, I think one recitation period. He had the classes in Higher Mathematics, i. e., Geometry, Trigonometry, Higher Arithmetic and Univer- sity Algebra, books which are not printed now, but were studiedfthen, after the student had passed regents in Arithmetic and Algebra, also Mental and Moral Philosophy, Physics, Astronomy, Physiology, Chemistry, Composition and Rhetoric, German, Cicero and Virgil. The Preceptress had charge of all other High School classes, including the finishing classes in Arithmetic, Grammar, as it was called, then, Geography, and Spelling. School was called at 8:11-5 a. m. There was an opening period of 15 minutes for singing and devotional exercises, a 15 minute recess at 10:30 a. m., and 2:30 p. ln. The recitation periods were of 30 minute period duration. I attended school winters and worked on the farm summers, and was allowed to double up on classes. Miss Emerson was succeeded by Miss Clark, who married the Pro- fessor shortly after my graduation. -Chas. VV. Butler. FAIRPORT HIGH SCHOOL AS I KNEW IT ' Franc Fassett Pugsley, '90. Only pleasant memories come as my thoughts go back to the old days in Fairport High School in '88, '89, and '90, At its head was Principal Floyd J. Bartlett, A. B., a scholarly gentleman, efficient, capable, a good disciplinarian, yet always justg taking a personal interest in each pupil. He was a great lover of the Classics, and through the work done in Latin and Greek during his regime, our school became a "Classical and Union School." In the Academic Department were two other teachers: Miss Mary Macauley, Preceptressg teacher of English and Sciences, a choice spirit, vivacious, enthusiastic: and Miss Florence Seeley, teacher of Latin and History, stately, reserved, yet kind and thoughtful. How we enjoyed our work under their competent guidance. 'iHigh thundering Zeusi' seemed again to reign when Mr. Bartlett translated Horner: with Miss Seeley we read of the "Faithful Anchisesw, Aeneas and Queen Dido, and what a joy to go with Miss Macauley and her science class down through the Genesee Gorge, where under her instruction, Geology and Botany became living subjects. It was not what they taught, but the influence which came from their high type of manhood and womanhood, which made upon us a lasting impression. THE HOUR GLASS 61 How pleasant was the association with classmates and schoolmates, how inspiring the morning exercises, with Grace Light or Nettie Reynolds at the piano, and charming Miss DeYVitt., teacher of the Eighth Grade, with Prin- cipal Bartlett, to lead the singing. There were some splendid voices, too, among the pupils, and the walls of the building used to ring with melody. At Rhetoricals and school entertainments much budding talent was brought to light, all these things contributed to an excellent school spirit. Back of teachers and pupils, working for the best good of all, was tl1e School Board, selected from the best of Fairport's citizens. At this time Mr. VV. H. Dobbin was president of this board. The words of the Valedictorian of '90 come back to me. W'as it prophecy that she should say it addressing Teachers and Board of Education: "Your influence will ever be to us as a guiding star, which clouds of oblivion shall never hide." It has proven true, for down through the years, pupils have gone out from. this school to do their best in many lines, inspired by the influences that were thrown about them in their school days. Long live Fairport High School with her wonderful new building, and more complete equipment! May there be better service and results, and may her past prove but a stepping stone to her future greatness. Pittsford, N. Y., March 22, 1927. REMINISCENCES OF 1893 To look back over a third of a century to the days of the Class of 1893 arouses a feeling of appreciation for the educational advantages of the past as well as produces a sense of realization for the ch:n1ce that is taking place in our complexity of living today. The red b-rick building on Church Street then housed the entire student body, grades and high school. The building was considered at that time the best in the villages of Monroe County. For years it was one of the beauty spots of Fairport because of its fine lawn, circular walk and double hedgerow of well-kept evcrgreens. It is witl1 wonder and wide-eyed amazement that young Freslnnen sat in the old assembly hall while Professor Bartlett conducted his Greek recita- tion. Natural' curiosity was stronger than either will-power or the ability to concentrate, which resulted in the Freshmen giving more time to the strange Greek characters being written on the board than to the prepara- tion of their own Algebra, lessons. The Faculty as I see them now was a group .of superior teachers who must have been progressive in their professional attitude. For although the topical method of education procedure was advocated only in 1888, still that method had found its way to the instruction of the Fairport Classical High School by 1890. It is with admiration and respect that I recall Pro- fessor Floyd J. Bartlett, Miss McCauly, Miss Steele and Miss Kellogg. ' How different was the course of study as compared with the complicated curricula and extra-curricula of today! Then, the course offered was in- tended primarily for college preparation. To benefit such students the course required four years of Latin and three years of Greek with two years of mathematics and electives. No home economics with sewing, nzil- -linery and cooking, nor manual training with shops for wood working and printing, nor agricultural projects were provided. Neither was much at- tention given to athletics for there were no football, basketball nor baseball teams, neither were there track meets. 62 THE HOUR GLASS The young people of today may wonder what we old folks did in those days without movies, automobiles, radios and the thousand and one activities of today. Perhaps we ourselves wonder what we really did do, yet time never hung heavily on our hands. A favorite social activity consisted of congregating around the banister in the upper hall just 'before time for the last bell to ring. It was the writer's responsibility to act as official bell ringer and as such he occasionally received the disapproving look of the principal. This was caused by a fifteen or thirty second delay in ringing the gong due to a sympathetic fellow-feeling for the visitors in the hall. An outstanding class activity was a launch ride taken on the Erie Canal to Palmyra where the class enjoyed a sumptuous banquet. It has been a pleasure to live over again some of the events of a third of a century ago. Although not all of the twenty-four members of the Class of 1893 are still with us, yet many are in responsible positions. ' V -Charles C. Scheck, '93, THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION-AS IT WAS In this brief history of the Alumni Association. of the Fairport Hi-gli School, a sketch of the first reunion may be of interest. The Association was organized by the late VV. D. Mauro, Principal of the High School at that time, and the first reunion was held on the evening of June twenty-third, eighteen ninety-three. Plans made for an elaborate banquet were carried out with enthusiasm, and such was the interest that, with a few exceptions, the entire Alumni and several former teachers were present. The reunion was held' in the assembly hall of the old High School Which was beautifully decorated in Red, VVhite and Blue. F. D. H. Cobb, first chairman of the Association, was toast-master on that occasion. Toasts were responded to by a representative of each class, the Faculty and the Board of Education. Music, vocal and instrumental was furnished by the Alumni while at the close all joined in singing "America" For twenty-six years the annual Alumni Reunion was an event of Com- mencement VVeek. The reception and election of officers was followed by something in the way of entertainment. The annual dues brought but fifty cents, however it became the custom to give an Alumni play or concert to help defray the expenses of the reunion, with one exception when the pro- ceeds were donated to the Public Library. Then too, during the war, the Alumni did "Its Bit" through an "After- noon Tea", arranged by the women. The final reunion on the evening of June twenty-first, nineteen seventeen, the sum of one hundred and seven dollars was realized and given to the local Red Cross. And now, after a lapse of several years, it is gratifying to know that some of the younger graduates are making an effort to re-organize the splendid Alumni Association of the Fairport High School. - -Mary Gild-ea, ,94A. My Dear Alumni: ' Greetings from your Alma Mater. She takes this occasion to tell you how proud she is of all her children. You are doctors, lawyers, nurses, business men, teachers, mothers, fathers, but wherever your lot is cast, you are doing your best. And so Fairport High honors you. THE HOUR GLASS 68 ' YVe have grown since you left us. VVe are housed in a beautiful hulilding, well equipped in every way to serve the young people of our community. lVe are a happy family, though rather a large one. Our curriculum is a broader, more elastic one than it used to be. Perhaps that explains our larger numbers. Our family is large and efficient, its members giving un- selfishly their time and their strength to their pupils. VVe make an attempt to know the individual pupil, and, so far as it is within our power, to consider him and develop him to his fullest capacity. That is a high ideal, we realize, and we are not attaining it so well as we wish we were. VVe prefer, however, to set a high standard, even though it leaves us dissatisfied, rather than be smug and happy over mediocre attain- ments. lVe regret that wc do not see you more often. VVe hope that you still think of us with affection. The young people who have left us within the last few years wish to be banded together in au. organization that would meet at least once each year. How do you feel about this? Not only might you gain inspiration from meeting together but you might be able to do something definite for the school. A lvishing you all thc fullest degree of happiness and success, I am Most sincerely your friend, hfinerva L. DeLand. , Fairport High School, March 31, 1927. I"airport, New York. ' March 1, 1927. Dear Hour Glass: Greetings to the Seniors of 1927 from some other Seniors of a class of long agol I am speaking particularly, for the Class of 190-1-, all of whom are keeping their interests in Fairport High School and many of whom are still in the vicinity of the old school home. "High School" to those of us who graduated when the new century was still' young, can mean only those days in the old brick building on Church Street, under certain conditions of environment and tutelage which we alone would recognize as part and parcel of our school heritage, There is an old song, a most important amendment to the much-thumbed Academy Song Book of those days, which in its stirring' setting to the tune of "Solomon Levi", brings to mind those well-remembered faces of our faculty. There was Principal Xute, who "-gives oursecrets dead away And makes our face to blush And often tells before the class Our very latest crush." ' The author of' these words was our Miss Elizabeth Pierce who with Miss Minerva, guided our rather hazy ideas of what should be the proper behavior of young students emerging gradually into seniorhood. Institutions, we areoften told, are the lengthened shadows of their leaders. So we think. "High School" meant our teachers, even more than ourselves. .Of these two do we often fondly speak, who lent themselves so generously- and so graciously to our needs. The old song observes of Miss DeLand, ' ' ' "That when they have their Latin done - ' They recognize her powers." - 1 l 64 THE HOUR GLASS The high standard of English instruction given by Miss Pierce came to be a byword. Our deae ex machina they were, and we, the willing cast. Most of us remember old HT. Cf' who stalked the aisles in study hall, murmuring ironically, "culture, culture, culture." Miss Mary Warner took from many :ii trembling eighth grader his fear of algebra and geometry. And do you have as much fun as we did, we often wonder? Not that we were not agitated by keen competitions and sharp rivalries, for those were days when marks were still a rather pleasant game with often quite chastening effects! But oh, the fun! Do you have a Jess, a prize funny man whose round, red face over the top step sends everyone into gales? Or a John, with droll answers, or a Wilbur, an Et or an Em? There was I,e'tty, the lady, Lorence of the gentle smile, -ai whole handful of popular Ediths, and then the twins-Lulu and Daisy, Charlotte and Ethel, Everett and George, Wilbur and Roy. VVe bid you welcome to our alumni association..f May it be an association of pleasant memories to you as it has been to us. VVith all good wishes for a brilliant future for each and every member of the Class ,of 1927, I remain, Yours cordially, Marjorie Snow Merriman, '04-. GREETINGS FROM 1913! In an effort to write an interesting sketch of our high school days, I try to have the memories pass in review but find them much less orderly than even the raw recruits of any army, and that is saying a great deal. How pleased and important we felt when Miss DeLand called us "MLN or "Miss" in our first Latin class! VVe didn't feel so big, however, when our preparation of thc lesson didn't suit her. VVe felt much abused at being required, to study Latin, but I have never regretted' it since that time. I wonder if it's still customary to assign to Freshmen the seats in the front of the study hall in which their -embarrassment and awkwardness may be seen by the dignified and experienced Seniors and Juniors, and by the cynical Sophs. YVhen passing out at the close of a session, we had most marvelous music from our classmates who could' tease the piano into bursts of melody sufficient to make almost anybody shake his feet. Our gym was the schoolyard and if the weather was unpleasant it was "just too bad" for we had to get our exercise in climbing the big front stairs and sliding down the polished rail when the teachers were not looking. It was lots of fun but rather hard on the pencils in our coat pockets. It must he a igreat convenience to have ri real gymnasium inside, which permits basketball in all weather and baseball in the Spring without ruining all the back windows of the building. Our debating club was also at source of much profitable amusement while it lasted. Its collapse, however, closely followed by the collapse of a couple of study-hall windows, when some of the members, for lack of a more inter- esting occupation, started throwing erasers. Prior to 1913, autos were not so com-mon that teams and rooters could be sure of using them for out-of-town games. WVe used to go by foot, bicycle, or any other available means to Webster, Pittsford, etc., and usually there was a good crowd to support the team. The baseball game that stands out in my memory is the one in which we beat Honeoye Falls 1-0 in about the 13th inning of a long air-tight game. That was a night for celebration! THE HOUR GLASS 65 The crowning event of our High School days was our trip to Washington, when we crawled out at an unearthly hour to be sure of catching our special train. VVe took twice as much lunch as we needed, but ate most of it anyway. A bottle of sweetened lemon juice, which I had not used' before reaching VVashington, worked overtime in the hot water and blew out the cork and mixture all over my clean clothes. So fa.r as I knew, that was our only mis- hap on the trip, which was most .pleasant and educational. We filled our days with sight-seeing and our nights with exploring. One night, when looking for the Congressional Library, a couple of us were on the point of deciding that it must have moved, for we were on the corner of streets having the right number and letter. VVe found, however, that we were in the North East quarter instead of the South East. Having straightened out our directions, we reached the library just as it was closing for the night, and charged up the evening to education. It isn't until several years later that we appreciate the patience of our teachers, and feel inspired by their example to be more considerate of others. -Robert Clapp, '13. THE SPIRIT OF 1926 Why cannot Fairport High School have an Alumni Association? There was such an organization a few yea.rs ago but it dissolved doubtlessly, be- cause the need of one was not so important as it is now. Fairport has a beautiful new high school in which every resident is interested. A com- plete list of every person who has graduated is now complete. Would it not be 'interesting to meet these classmates, some of whom you have not seen for many years? It is only natural that as one graduates and goes out into his chosen field, he partly loses that close interest in his first Alma Mater. But this interest should not be lost. It is what supports the school and gives it a foundation upon which to stand. Do not our mothers and fathers remind us of the times when they were in school? Or the teachers? The events and the school life in general? This shows us that the love for their high school is not lost 'but that it lacks unification or organization. Thus we can see the need of an Alumni Association. Just what is its purpose? An Alumni Association should be organized to renew the social life of the graduates, to stimulate interest in school affairs and to help better the community. The majority of such organiza- tions meet yearly at a banquet or some similar occasion. It sometimes pays dues which are used for scholarships. In brief, it stands behind the educa- tional phase of community life. It supports its Alma Mater. Other prosperous villages have well organized associations. Fairport should have one. To make an association a success, every alumnus must get behind this project and push! VVhen theltime comes and the project is placed before you, Alumni, will you respond? It is you for whose co- operation we are asking. We need you. -Marguerite Hutchinson, '26. 66 THE HOUR GLASS ECHOES Rosa Nicosia, '21, and Marv Nicosia, '23, are in New York.

"Gosh,,' ejaculates Hazel Ewing. How did the team come out?U asks everyone as Patsy returns. "You don't have to ruin a man's stuff," peevishly complains Patsy, as he finds a prank played on him. "Will you two go to sleep ?" floats- from the next cot on 403 where some- one is trying to go -to sleep. "Shut up, you talking machine, listen to the music." "Why, hello Hutch," as a friend drops in. "You darn lolly," bellows "Dad", She did, did he," accompanies "Lew". "Well, what do you think about that ?" laughs Mr. King. Donit be huffy, Ruth," echoes from room 308.

Scene Two--Monday morning--twelve feet soaking-a sudden shower and sudden jumps. One of the most interesting days of the trip was the visit to the Navy Yard, eh, Helen? Calories, calories! ! Ivy Hoffman's daily gift-flowers, etc. Iona Diedriclfs measurement of the beds to see in. which one she fits. Who was always the first one through eating?-Ruth Bendschneider.

"Better service would be appreciatedf' The rush for the cafeteria every morning at 8:15. One thing about George, he always was right on time in the morning. Miss Hepinstall and Miss Stone quite enjoyed the Monastery. BRILLIANT ANSWERS FROM TEST PAPERS Abraham was born in early life in Kentucky. Padrewski is the Polish premier. Vica versa means somebody else's. I.e tout ensemble is a Philharmonic orchestra. Gladstone is the present English prime minister. Ford was the democratic candidate in the 192+ election. Grasshoppers have lungs. A triangle having three equal angles is an isoceles triangle. The battle of Princeton was a decided victory for the British. Bonte is good tea. 90 THE HOUR GLASS .

We wondered why until we thought of Gladys. Chevy Chase seems to be in rather a remote part of Washington. "I'm so glad you havenit your hair bobbed. You look so sweet." How about it, Ruth? ' Ruth Deuel Qnear Independence Hallbz "For goodness sake, l'm so tired, I'm dead and d0n't know it." INFORMATION T The man in centerfield would have undoubtedly have caught that fly if there had not been a little stone in his way. ' Carl Young is despondent. The red' head across the hall in the Benjamin Franklin does not bew-ail his departure. In factshe said: "Sorry you are going. Perhaps now we can get a little sleep." "Shut up, small change." ' The Bramer boys have purchased a 1902 Ford sedan Ccarj to be able to keep all their appointments. 'One of the crowd has purchased some anti-trip shoes. Who is it?

THE HOUR GLASS OUR SENIOR TRIP LASTING IMPRESSIONS "We start out in the morning fresh,,clean, full of spirits, and bubbling over with 'pep'."-Stuart VValling. "About ten o'elock in the morning, he is passing through the Finger Lake d-istrict. Here he is fascinated. by some deepi gorges leading out of the hills toward a lake."-Iona' Diedrich. "Traveling with a group will bring forth a great deal of enjoyment and pleasure."-Lewis Bramer. "As we entered the massive terminal at Washington, we were at first sight impressed with the beauty of the structure."-Hazel Ewing. "VVashin1g'ton is a beautiful city."-Betty Harris. "The buildings and streets amaze youg the classes of people fascinate youf,-DaCosta Bramer. "When one travels through the historic places in and around Washington, the experience is not only of value to him as a present day citizen, .but it shows him the aittitude the country has toward its most eminent men. Years of labor and billions of dollars have been centered in the construction of buildings as memorials. Even the museums reveal the fact that the govern- ment is anxious to retain old relics of past civilization and history."-Ruth Bendschneider. "Mu-ch has to be overlooked when eating, while traveling."-Effie Warner. "Traveling from, city to city will show you the different kinds of Ameri- cans."-Norman Diedrich, "However, the impression which seems strongest is one of enj oyment."- Tom Pierce. "The atmosphere of spring filled each of us with unknown ambitions that seemed to take us from place to place."-Harry Mosher. "Excitement and enjoyment are a general characteristic of traveling." -Elberta Reed. "Oh, the big busses! The lights about the capital! The beautiful build- ingsf,--Norma E-bert. "On our right is the Washington monument, the tallest structure of solid masonry in the world."-Charles VVhite. "The beauty and gorgeous splendor of those mighty buildings of our country cannot help but inspire anyone who beheld them. Yes, the capitol with the huge dome towering toward the sky is beyond description."-Ivy Hoffman. "Life, laws and government all seem more real. The original documents, flags, relics and statues leave in our mind a deep impression of gratitude toward our forefathers and an appreciation for our progressive country and its leader."-Lorrena Westerman. "Beauty means little without the historical significancef'-Doris Crellin. "The trip to the Franciscan Monastery was restful, free from the con- tinual calling of the guides."-Ruth Howe. "Someone tells you that the inside is more beautiful than the outside."- Carl Young. "The beauty of the whole trip impressed each one so much that it was impossible to describe itg the conveniences superb, the atmosphere re- finedf,-Leigh Greenfield. THE HOUR GLASS 95 "The baths would make an inter-class rush look like a game of tag.,'- Patsy Benfont. "Having walked for at least three-quarters of an hour and yet having found no suitable eating place, you at last sit down to a table in "Childs" -Janet Reamer. "Slowly the gray dawn creeps over the hills. Blaekness retreats to the valleys. The golden sun shines on tl1e dirty coach. Rochester Junction next stopf'-Helen Hart. f SCHOOL MAXIMS A11 idea in the head is worth two in tl1e book. Order is Heaven's first law. WVell arranged times is the mark of a well arranged mind. Harpacrates, the god of silence, caned a cornucopia. Business before pleasure. ldleness is thc mother of mischief. As we sow, so shall we reap. VVhen there is a will, there is a way. Time and tide wait for no man. Educate for dollars and cents. A purpose. once fixed, then victory, or death. VVhatever is worth doing, is worth doing well. Paddle your own canoe. Be sure you are right, then go ahead. Recite promptly. Every moment of delay is multiplied by the number i11 the class. A minute of study is worth two hours of musing. He who would have friends must himself be friendly. Experience is a dear teacher. Not failure, but low aim, is a crime.
