STUDENT BODY OFFICERS 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 blue!!! 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." -Sheila Fox, A7. HOMEWORK. dreaded foe Of all normal school children, Who like to play games, Unpopular in all schools, But thanked for in later life. -lohn Bedrosian, AQ. 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! -Dolores Gurwin, A8. THE HANDS OF THE CLOCK go round and round, Thru the days and the nights, but they make but one sound. The sound is a minute which goes ticking by, Minutes when a man may live or may die. Minutes, then hours, then days and then years The clock ticks without worries, nor sorrow, nor fear. -Roberta Kauffman, B8. PRESIDENT ' IERRY MALAT GIRLS' LEAGUE PRESIDENT IUDY FRIEDMAN SECRETARY EDYTHE BOND BOYS' COUNCIL PRESIDENT DUDLEY SCOTT

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. Died 1921. 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 woods, the soft moss underfoot, the birds in joyous song, Born l837 Died 1921. These are the dry encyclopedia facts. -Iudy Baker, S'46. H770 cfonsider Ibis poem one of the hues! ever pub- lished al 1.13.2 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- ' P Q All these make music that no one can beat, They make life worth living, and they make life sweet. Yes, a dreary place this world would be If God took all music away from me. -Allan Sandler' A9. IOHN BURROUGHS Surrounded by brilliant foliage Glistens in the morning sunlight. Purple pansies and white and yellow daisies Add a gay air to the emerald lawn, . While a multi-colored throng of excited students Crowd the Worn steps Through ever-open doors. Inside, the halls resound with voices Teachers smile a calm good morning to boister- ous pupils. Boys and girls bang lockers and shout "hello's." Little before-school-groups gather, Sounding like chipmunks at work. Then comes a bell, It sounds a shrill command over the school. Teachers on last minute errands hasten to class rooms. The little groups are gone, The pupils rush,down the hall calling Last minute messages over their shoulders. Another bell resounds through the corridors: All is quiet, the halls are empty now. The classrooms buzz with activity, Another schoolday at Iohn Burroughs has be- gun. -Ruth Herzoff, A9. IN THE MEADOWS rich and green, Gay colored flowers are fit for a queen, -Blue bells and buttercups bow down their heads, While delicate violets sway in their beds. The light 'spring breeze makes the meadow a sea Of ripples and waves so wide and so free, In this green sea as it ripples along, The flowers are ships that are sturdy and strong. The tall straight trees stand solemn with pride As the broad leaves flutter and seem all alive, But soon the sun will sink from the sky, I And thesea will rest with the wind's last sighs. -Nora Gregorian, B7. SENIOR ORCHESTRA

HOPE I-le saw shadows, beyond them darkness, Darkness was a cage. A wind was there, a Wind which had always been, Which always would be, and ran on forever. I-lis eyes searched, but there was nothing. Nothing is terrifying when a background to suggestions. Then a call - a bird. "Why do you call, bird, While I am in darkness? Free me! For here is nothing But uncertainty and fear. Let me see light!" And light came from lar away. It was just a ribbon, but it was hope. I-ie iollowed it, faltering, For such brightness was blinding. -Gordon Smith" A9. In the WOODS AT NIGHT I hear an untrained symphony orchestra Playing a beautiful concert. - The trees rubbing their branches together. Are the violins and cellos. The crickets are the trumpets and horns. -Wayne Sanger lr., A7. THE LARGE LONELY ROCK stands by itself Letting the sea lash at her sides. Children come to play on herg Lovers come to be by themselves When the moon casts a silver streak Across the Water. Fishermen fish from her highest point. They go and they come, ' But the sea still lashes at her sides. -Bette Smithf AQ. BURR ART under the leadership oi Mrs. Myrle Petrie is the advanced art class at I.B.
