The world is still and white,
No sound disturbs the murky gloom.
The rugged mountains, stand mute and grim,
Heaving their huge shoulders to the sky,
Their secrets ever untold.
The moon shimmers across the sky
Casting forth her frosty beams
On a world snow-covered and cold.
The silence seems unending,
Death on every land
Stalks the ice-covered reaches,
Dark and threatening.
Stretch their giant branches to heaven
Pleading, but proud.
A wolf, hungry and gaunt,
Pads the snow for prey.
A rabbit scurries to the safety
Of his burrow.
The red eyes look elsewhere.
The world sighs and is silent,
No sound disturbing the night.
-Katharine Blight, B8.
THE RAYS of the setting sun
Stretching into the heavens
Are the arms of God
Gathering His children together
Before the darkness. -Ioanne Rubinstein, A9.

I walked along the ascending pathg
Below me the landscape stretched verdant
Redwoods reached upwards
into the drifting clouds,
White daisies dotted the meadow
Like snow flakes in a sea of green.
And then came the lashing windy
The rain beat upon my face.
I turned my back to shield myself
From the fury of the elements.
And when l turned to see my beautiful valley,
It was gone-and never to be seen again.
-David Entin', A9.
Hardly a bush moved, as the doe glided
Into the camp,
But as she came upon the crates of food,
The hunters gun went off.
Scarce two hundred yards away,
As soft as a ball of yarn,
Lay a small brown fawn,
With speckled back gleaming in the sun.
-Rhoda Stern' A9
Clouds are the white gloves of God.

"Here comes mother to scold me," the child
thought, and braced herself, a little house with
all its doors and windows shut.

Like a town on a rainy night,
Or a satin gown in soft moonlight.
Like jello on a silver dish, . .
Or a child's eyes on hisvbirthday wish.
Shimmering-The whole world is shimmering.

Happy, lighthearted, spirited Iune-
Laughing golden Iune comes rollicking in
With her carefree face tanned by the hot sun.
Sand and water, cokes and hog dogs-
Tennis, baseball-all belong to Iune.
Iune loves long golden days
And silver moonlit nights, dates and dances,
But-most of all-
Iune loves to dream. -Nadine Peroft", AQ.
Intense murmer of distant winds,
Echoed against the tinted rocks,
Carved by nature, through centuries of wind
Painted by the Master of Masters.
Eyeing His masterpiece with delight,
I see before me the vastness of an empire,
The riches ot a kingdom,
Nestled together like petals
In a partly opened rose. -Marvin Taft, A9.

THE THRIFT COMMITTEE. under the alole direction of Miss Ada Egbert helps us put away that dime
a Week that We might spend foolishly.
'I'HE SERVICE ORGANIZATION STAFF or S.O.S. is one of the most helpful organizations at I. B.
Heading the organization are George Steffes, the grand marshall, and Roger Von Pressig, Robert
Stevenson, and David Kaplan. But, of course, the staff gives great thanks to Mr. Hunt, who has put
forth his efforts year after yeqf to make this organization one of which the school can be proud.
A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO I. ,B.
When thru your halls I swagger and sway
With all my books on every day,
I think that I would like to be
At home, where books can not hurt me.
But though you're trying at times, I tear,
I grow more used to you each year. '
So to you, l. B., MY PART-TIME HOME,
I dedicate this little poem,
And, with all respect to you I say,
Ahappy twenty-fifth birthday.
-Ronald Behling, A8.
I. B.. YOU ARE STRONG and bold,
You are now twenty-tive years old.
l5,000 pupils have graduated from here,
And more will graduate this year.
The education we get from you
Will keep all the years through. '
We're grateful l.B. to youl
-Mary Finwall, A7
IOHN BURROUGHS, we honor you,
With colors bright and gay,
For every year you served us
We stand for you today.
You are very dear to us,
And truly we can say:
Love from our hearts
From all of us-
Today and every day.
-Arlene Student, B8
The years have come, the years have gone,
And YOU ARE TWENTY-FIVE.
But still as in those days gone by,
Your halls are vibrantly alive.
They and all the doors and rooms
Have many a tale to tell
And if they could speak, I know they'd say
This year has gone so well.
And now, you've completed your silver year.
Greetings, I want to say,
On behalf of all the kids you've known,
I wish you a "Happy Birthday!"
-Barbara Schoen, B8

Oh, I'm tired, long trampled,
I have to be bold,
It's my Silver Anniversary

I'm ever so happy
And I'm glad it's been told
It's my Silver Anniversary
I'm twenty-tive years old. V

We'll miss the school, the work, the fun I

IOHN BURROUGHS, the Man
These are the dry, encyclopedia facts,
Iohn Burroughs, naturalist and author, '
journalist and treasury clerk,
barn 1837 in Roxbury, N. Y.
Behind the cold, encyclopedic type
I see a man of kindly face and gentle eye,
who loved the earth he lived upon
for tour score years and four,
who Watched the robin on the wing,
the caterpillar on the leaf,
who laid his head upon the ground
to watch the marching clouds . . .
I see a man who loved the aged tree -
and the young bough, the taste of honey
and the feel of wind, the rain and thunder,
the calm before the storm and the storm after,
who loved his neighbor and his fellow man,
and was in turn beloved by them. I see
a stately figure walking slowly in the cool
the soft moss underfoot, the birds in joyous song,
Died 1921. These are the dry
-Iudy Baker, S'46.

LIFE WITHOUT MUSIC '
What a dreary place this world would be
If God took all music away from mel
I'd miss the birds with their lilting songs,
The hum of the brook as it tumbles along
I'd miss the music everywhere,
Life would be so empty and oh, so bare!
The song of the swallow, or robin red breast,
The chir of a mother bird hi h in her nest- '
All these make music that no one can beat,
They make life worth living, and they make life
Yes, a dreary place this world would be
If God took all music away from me.
-Allan Sandler' A9.

Last minute messages over their shoulders.

MURDER IN THE LB. LIBRARY
As we look in on loan and her class we find
them in the library. Everything is quiet and
everybody is hard at work. But suddenly we
hear a loud shriek coming from the direction of
loan's table. Has someone been murdered? As
the teacher rushes to Ioanie's side, she finds her
sitting very puzzled and her mouth is a dark
The teacher doesn't wait but rushes Ioan to
the nurse. In the nurse's office she writes a note
saying, "I would rather not talk." The nurse
thinks it would hurt her to talk and worriedly
calls loan's father.
At home loan rushes to her room and
emerges a few minutes later without a blue
mouth. "Well?" says her father.
"lt's really very simple," says loan. "I have
a habit of chewing my pens and pencils. This
afternoon I stuck my pen in my mouth. . . and
I forgot to put the cap on."

OUR STUDENT GOVERNMENT
SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO
As refreshing as a soda on a hot day, a sort
of dessert, it comes on Friday. I-laven't you
guessed what I'm talking about yet? Why of
course, it's the excellent assemblies. This is the
time to get away from it all.
You walk into the auditorium, go to your
own seat and sit back. The doors are closed
and then you hear those familiar words, "Will
you please rise for the Pledge of Allegiance?"
You rise, recite the familiar phrases, and again
sit down. You lean forward as someone ap-
proaches the microphone to announce the pro-
gram. It's going to be a play. Maybe the next
time it will be a movie, or maybe several selec-
tions frorn the glee clubs, or a magic show.
But, no matter what it is, it's sure to be exciting
and something to lok forward to!

Oh, I want to be a robin-
Or anything on wing,
For they're flying to Wisconsin
Now that it is spring!
I want to watch a crocus
Try to push the snow away,
And see the budding treetops
Bursting out in Mayl
I want to feel the raindrops
Come slanting to the ground
And angle round the angle worms
Who're up and squirming round!
It'd be grand to smell a lilac
Still wet with heavy dew,
And find some pussie willows
So real they almost mewl
Oh I want to be a robin-
For when the robins know
That it's springtime in Wisconsin

As cold as glassy ice,
Pounds and rushes, tossing its waves high
Against the barrier of rocks
Flung out upon the beach

Of the blue velvet sea L
The beach glistens white
As darkness covers the land.

In 1933, Robert Hightower moved from Flor-
ida to Los Angeles, where he attended lohn Bur-
roughs Iunior High School. While here he en-
joyed the acrobatic club and handball, but the
subject that impressed Robert most was wood-
shop under the direction of Mr, Baile. Robert
graduated from IB. and attended l...A. High.
Upon graduating from there, he took up danc-
ing and stunt work, eventually getting the lead
in many Broadway shows such as "Higher and
Higher," "Panama Hattie," "Little Dog Laugh,"
and "By Iupiterf'
When the war broke out, Robert enlisted in
the navy as a pilot instructor. He saw service in
the Pacific and was discharged in 1946. After
the war he again began dancing. He went to
England and played at the London Palladium.
Then his big moment came. He was invited to
give several command performances for the
King and Queen. This was a just reward after
his hard work. After this, he toured the Euro-
pean continent for two years, then becoming
homesick, he returned to the U. S,
Probably no alumnus of IB. has had a more
colorful lite than Robert Hightower. At least,
we know of no other who has danced before

What did Oliver Cromwell do?
Who won the battle of Waterloo?
When was the Suez Canal put through?
Who wrote the "The Taming of the Shrewu?
How do I stand it, I'rn asking you?
Who was it painted the "Man with the I-Ioo"?
And what is the name of the other Shmoo?
Who wrote the music so sweet and low
For Swannee River and Old Black Toe?
The more I study the less I know.
When did the War of the Roses begin?
Whose hand did Mark Anthony win?
What country is a source of tin?
Whose cabinet was Hamilton in?

FAMOUS SPORT STARS OF I.B.
Many great sports stars have attended john
Burroughs. Among the best known were lim
and Don Hardy, Don Paul, and Al Hoisch.
IIM HARDY is tabbed by many as U.S.C.'s
greatest forward passer. In l944 he had a pass
completion average of 522. jim went to j.B.
and then on to Fairfax where he starred in foot-
ball and baseball. From Fairfax, he entered
U.S.C. ln his freshman year, he lettered in three
sports, football, basketball, and baseball. The
following three years jim was quarterback on
the "Trojan Eleven." On the baseball team, he
was the first string third-baseman and hit well
over three hundred. ln the 1944 season, he was
elected captain and led his team to victory over
Washington and Tennessee in the l944-'45 Rose
Bowl games. After graduation, he was signed
by the Los Angeles Rams, where he is number
"2" quarterback under Bob Waterfield. Last
yeor, jim had the second best passing record in
the National League.
DON HARDY went to LB. along with his brother
jim. After graduating from Fairfax, Don entered
U.S.C. where he was a fine end on the freshman
squad. The following three years, he lettered
on the Trojan varsity. He made all-coast one
year and was drafted by many a pro team. Don
declined to play pro and now has his own busi-
DON PAUL is one of the best of these athletes,
Don went to I.B. and then on to L.A. High where
he was a star center under Bert La Brucharie,
who was later to coach Don at college. Don then
enrolled at U.C.L.A. and gained all coast honors
for the Bruins for three years. After his gradua-
tion, he was signed by the Los Angeles Rams
whose coach predicts Don will be one of the
best centers in the National League.

BOYS' GYM CLUB
THE GYM CLUB is one of the most modest, best
organized athletic groups at j.B. It is composed
of o. group of boys who have survived the tests
that they have to take to be members. Some of
these boys become so adept in forward and
backward rolls and other gymnastic creations
that they become the most accomplished senior
high gymnasts, submitting only to the few All-
Star and H.A.S. games held in the gym at noon,
the gym club meets every week-day.
Last year the first annual gym meet was
held. It was so successful that Mr. jackson, the
sponsor, decided to have one every year, The
meet, of course, will be a big boon and boost
to the already successful club.

"That movie was swell!" This is a common
exclamation uttered by many Burroughsonians
each day. Behind each motion picture that you
see are the patience, skill, and hard work of
Mrs. Freeman and the twenty odd boys under
her on the projectionists' crew.
To become a projectionist, you must be able
to master the five portable projectors and the
projector located in the auditorium. You must
also be able to get yourself out of any kind of
fix that you might get into.
Under the capableyguidance of Mrs. Free-
man and Marshall Lewis, president of the club,
the crew has done a marvelous job of taking us
to many interesting places on this earth by the
means of a thin ribbon of film.

H.A.S. AND BOYS' LEAGUE CAPTAINS
One of the main features at Iohn Burroughs
is its very fine sports' program. Here a student
is sure to find a sport that suits him. Besides
football, baseball, and basketball, we have
handball, horseshoes, volleyball, tennis, and
Iohn Burroughs has one of the largest play-
grounds in the city. There is plenty of room for
everyone to play what he wants. Besides the
field, both the boys and girls have a gymna-
sium where they do the things they cannot do
outside. Every year there is an annual track
meet in which every grade competes. The ev-
ents are the fifty and hundred yard dash, broad
jump, baseball throw, and relay. There is also
the Dust Bowl which is a big football event.
Sports help to develop stronger people and
better citizens, and Iohn Burroughs is really
doing its part.

H.A.S.! What does it mean? Some say it means

and I-lawkins Athletic Society. As you all know,
the meaning of I-I.A.S. has been kept a secret,
but whatever its name, you can thank this or-
ganization for well-planned Sports Weeks, noon

events in I.B.'s athletic progress.
TOO GOOD FOR MY OWN GOOD
I was a raw rookie breaking into the minors.
I got my big chance the first day at the park.
The manager barked my name, "Tothe, get out
there on the moundl"
I was overcome with anxiety. The game
started. I began to tire them in. Batter after
batter went down under my barrage of fast
balls. The crowd roared. I was doing great! As
I approached the dugout, I expected the man-
ager to compliment me. After all, I held them
hitless. But, instead, he howled, "What do you
mean getting out there and making our best
batters look sick? You're tired!" I

Skippy Spaeth? Yes!! Skippy is our excellent

Along with Skippy, the fine pitching of Maureen
Fond and fielding 'of Louise Harris and Micky
Spaeth are outstanding. The hitting of this team
is hard, high and long. Contributors to this repu-
tation are Ianet Cogan, Emily Raife, Ian Haven-

on for homeruns. Charmaine Dickerson, Sandra
Harris, Enid Wiemokly and Margery Mackenzie
are noted for their fine team play and swift

come out so spontaneously, or where else is

ALL-STARS VS. H.A.S.
The crowd! is tense. The ball is a 'homing
pidgeon, soaring through the air, determined
to reach its destination. A roar! Screams of joy
and sadness rise from the crowd.
It's the All-Star, H.A.S. basketball game pit-
ting the best athletes of the school against each
victorious, both striving to win this "game of
the year." The All-Stars are led by their red-
headed guard combination of Ierry Kliman and
Captain Lenny Rapping. The I-l.A.S. features
Captain Gerry Elkins at center and Eddie Brant
lt has been a clean hard-fought battle all
the way. The score now stands at 12 to 8, with
the All-Stars leading, and in possession of the
ball. A free throw for Buzzy Engleson! lf he can
sink this it will almost cinch the game for the
All-Stars as time is running out. "Swish!" The
ball sounds as it meets the net, and the proud
smile on Buzzy's face tells us the basket is good.
The H.A.S. takes the ball out of bounds. Next
there is a beautiful interception by Ierry Kliman,
who's going in for a lay-up all by himself. The
ball is rolling around the rimg will it go in? Yep!!

Being a student of I.B. has always meant a
great deal to me, and being able to serve you
as Athletic Commissioner has meant even more.
The sports' field has been one of the greatest

can not be carried through to success without
the cooperation and fine sportsmanship of you

Dear Girls of Iohn Burroughs,
l cannot believe that the term of S'49 is at its
close. I will always look back on it as a dream,
too good to be true, and fading away before
even beginning. Holding an office highlighted
my A9 terml To be able to work for, and with
such wonderful gals as all of you are, has been
a joy that I will never forget.
ln behalf of all the girls, I wish to thank the
physical education teachers for their excellent
direction, and Enid Wiemokly for her efficient
help in taking care of Iunior Noon League.
In closing, may l wish my successor a very
successful term. l'll be thinking of you all.
Girls' Athletic Commissioner, S'49
NOON LEAGUE: Have you ,ever played noon

missioner and the physical education teachers
plan noon league so that it is interesting and
lots of fun. The seniors and juniors alternate
every week. Anyone can have a part in noon
league, either playing on a team or as a ref-
eree. Good sportsmanship and co-operation go
together to make up a good team. The winning
team of the junior division and the winning
team of the senior division play it off to find the
champion team of the school. The Winning team
and the runner-up get to go on the stage in
the Girls' League assembly and receive letters.

which applies to sports and to all school activ-
ities as well. It is: "To win honorably, to lose
graciously, and to co-operate generously."

And the first notes sound.
Softly the pattering of spring rain

The slate of the world is clean and dry again.
But the giggling of the brook,
Like that of a novice
Playing his first major role,

That spring is youths possession.
The orchestra plays on.
The wistful fluting of wind in the reeds.
And the tempestuous yet petulant
Moaning of breeze-swayed trees,
Complete the wood-winds.

Like a sinuous harp.
And the waving grass in the meadow

Drawing from the earth its haunting melody.

And his cousin, the bull-frog,

Far above this complex work, a young honey-
Shy, yet hopeful, contributes a timid descant,
As all the elements of Spring join

Who, resting now after the rebirth of spring,
Answers with its own applause,
Silence, deep and reverent,
And hopes that the intermission is a long way

BATTLE OF THE GODS
The sun is covered with a soft grey blanket
As though to hide his kindly face
From the horrors of the impending battle.
Pulled by the winds, his mighty steeds,
The Rain God speeds in his black chariot
Across the purpling sky. Rushing, rumbling,
Hurtling over storm clouds, the chariot streaks
Winds scream with fury as the Rain God lashes
Cn and on they speed - thru the growing dusk
Over the clock of blackness, spread by night
across the sky. Q -
Iupiter starts the battle,
Searing the restless heavens
With flaming, white-hot swords.
Lightning flashesl Thunder crashes!
Rain plumrnets toward the earth.
Animals scurry into holes, birds into trees,
People stop work and rush into buildings,
All anticipating a thrilling, and magnificent
lupiter begins to show his mightl
The rain pours in torrents, as heavenly rivers
Pour their contents onto the world below
Neptune lashes the seashore in stormy wrath,
Mountains of churning water thunder
Toward rock strewn beaches, breaking, crush-
ing . . .
lt is no longer a spectacle to be watched and
Animals and people alike flee for their lives
As dams break and rivers flood.
A wicked thunderbolt strikes a tree,
A forest burns. Animals know not where to run,
Whether to burn or to drown. Men work fever-
Pitting their puny efforts against
The mighty forces of the Gods.
At last Apollo breaks through
The dismal curtain of blackness
With his shining golden chariot.

WINGS IN THE WIND
Nearer and nearer, they swarm:
Tiny specs in the distance,
Against the hovering gray sky.
Diminutive spotsl Over the tree tops they swoop
And dive into the lonely and barren yard.
Perching on a crimson roof top,
Their wings flutter
In the sharp wind,
While shrill crys echo
In the bitter air.
And into the distance again,
Their slender bodies gracefuly float
Over the rugged roof tops.
-Margaret Richards, AQ.
THE SKY AND ME
The morning oi a fresh spring day!
l peek at the sky with sleepy eyes,
But suddenly l arn wide awake
For l see before me a miracle of color and har-
A child's paint box spilled across the heavens.
Slowly the rainbow curtain spreads and risesg
The stage is set for a new act in the never-end-
ing drama of Life.
The sun is a fair-haired princess, reaching
To caress the trees and the flowers and grass.
She waves a wand that splashes green and
pink and blue over the earth.
The birds are dainty dancers
Pirouetting across the sky
In a ballet beautiful and graceful.
Then night fallsg the golden princess
ls hidden from prying eyes for another night.
In her place reigns the moon, a silver haired
Gracious and majestic as she ascends her celes-
The stars are sparkling sequins.
Scattered over her black velvet dress.
She draws a cloak of silence about her-then
All is quietg the world is at peace.
At last, l feel that there are but two things left
on earth -- the sky and rne.

I'M AN A9 NOW!
And about to graduate.
I-low strange it sounds
To hear those words
Coming from my own lipsl
'I recall when I was twelve years old,
A shy awkward B7,
I eyed those tall A9's with awe.
How wonderful, I thought,
To wear an A9 ribbon for all to see
Now I'm fourteen,
I know the joy of an A9 ribbong
I also know how quickly three years
Can slip through my fingers.
'I'here's a bit of sadness
Hidden in the depths of joy-
Even in an A9 ribbon.
I feel sadness at leaving I. B.,
The sort of sadness I feel
When I reach the end of a good book-
Sadness because this is the end of an important
In my lite.
l'll get my diploma very soon.
-Sally Rochlin, A9
WHENI GROW UP, then I will be,

But if I really knew, it would be a relief.
