Two years have l y since Dick (.rayliiel aiui Mr. Ki) ) s collalxiratecl to put fortli Ken¬ nedy ' s first year-book. .Vt the time t hey expressed the hope that their work should not po foi naiiplit, hut that the “Kencoll should heconie a yearly publication and take on its true sipnificance as a year-book. Unfortunately, no inapazine was forthconiinp last year. It was. therefore, with preat «leterniination that we set about this year to publish a year-book which wcnild be a worthy successor to theirs and which would be of such a nature as to encourape the students of Kennedy to establish “The Kencoll as an annual feature of the school year. W ' e have worked hard to achieve our poal and it is not without some pride that we point to this mapa- zine as the result of our labour. We sincerely thank . Ir. (lilbert and the. teach- inp staff for the assistance and sound atlvice which they have most penerously piven. Miss Hewitt, in particular, rendered valuable :issistance in preparinp our material. Ned Car rinpttJii is to be ] raised for the mapnificent manner in which he lias handled the business details connected with the publication. To the Forum also, we extend our thanks for the financial backing and pracious co-o] cration which they have piven us. Finally, we thank onr advertisers for having shown such faith in us, and we urge you to patronize them. From The Superintendent —Mr. I.. Wheelton. .My cry pleasant and mutually frieiully three years association with the staff and students of the Kennedy Collegiate Institute make any assurances of my pood wishes i|uite unnecessary. The pood wishes are here exjiressed in jirint only for the imqioses of a permanent record. 1 have followed with deejv satisfaction the school life this year in . rt and Music, in the re:ilm of health and sports, and in the more formal courses. The spirit with which the w(»rk has been uiulertaken and the steaily propn-ss which has been maintained speak well for the leadership of the new princiiial, Mr. ( ' .ilbert, and the fine relations existing among the principal, the staff, and the students. The splendid wt rk of the Forum, in the face of the school’s evident achievements in extra¬ curricular activities, may be taken for granted. It. however, de.serves the special commendation and the thanks of all who are intereste l in the school for again arranging to record the high¬ lights of the year’s accomplishments on the printed ] apes of the Kencoll. .My sincere good wishes for continued health, happiness ami success for the whole pers jnnel of Kennedy Collegiate Institute is here e.xpressed. THE KENCOLL 1 940 3 ..... MR. GEORGE S. CAMPBELL. B. A. POR many of the students in Kennedy Collegiate Institute the personality of Mr. Campbell was the outstanding feature at the beginning of their high school life. He it was who set before them the ideals for guiding them in the business of following adolescent education. With grateful remembrance they will carry his words and his encouragement on into the life beyond school days, and continue to find them a helpful influence. 4 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK ..Ill.IIMIIIMIIMItlllll........ ..Illlllll EDITORIAL you n — KHNCOLL — 1940 Published By the Students of the Kennedy Collegiate Institute Windsor, Ontario Price 20c per copy by S. R. Ross, Vice-Principal, Technical School Secondary school students look forward to the irreat adventure of life—a span of fifty or more years after leaviiifj scliool. Of this ])eriod there are ahead some forty-five years of work in a gainful occupation—in some role of service to their fellows. Such a long ])eriod to many hoys and girls seems endless—years seemingly pass so slowly that the time will never come when they will receive their first pay envelope and certainly the age of retirement, say sixty-five, is so far in the distance that it is never considered. Such is not the case, however, with all older jteople who fretiuently comment on the rapid passing of time and wish they could turn the clock backwards. Could the student of today detach himself from his group and hut survey the whole situa- titju with the eyes of older people, he would realize many facts which to him now are only hazy if at ail even contemplated. Since it is not given to young people U) realize their experiences beforehand, there may he some way of anticipating them and preparing for them. ()ne method is to formulate a plan. I’efore launching upon any enterprise or project there is always an objective in mind and to reach that objective, some ])lanned procedure, mental, written or drawn, must be pursued. I’cojile who ])erfonn the coni])lex work of the world are always ])lanning to lay. the work of tomorrow, next month and even ne.xt year. It is a safe guess that automobile models to he introduced in I ' Ml are being designed, modelled and studied today. Teachers of composition have this in mind when they urge a student to have a written i)lan for hi.s e.ssay. Me then knows his objective, his train of reasoning in reaching that objective, and as well, his place of starting. 1 low seriously is needed then a plan for one’s journey through the 45 years of work lying ahead which each student hopes to travel happily and successfully in some useful vocation. ' I ' he choos¬ ing of that vocation is not easy or to be dismissed lightly—there are some twenty thousand known occupations from which to choose. I laving once been inspired to a realization that there is after all something of a problem here, a student will be disposed to seek information and advice hel])ful to himself. It is here that ' oca- tional ( ' luidance will serve a useful purpose. . ])rogram of Guidance aims to assist individuals to choose, prepare for. to enter, or successfully adjust themselves to occupations: also to inform young peojile, and parents as well, regarding job rec|uirements, conditions and demand; to study educational facilities of their community and elsewhere which best may serve their particular program. This, in brief, is the purpose of guidance, so one can readily sec that there is nothing in the opinion that, by some magic, young people on sight are to be sorted out into groups suitable for one calling as against another. It is not as easy or self-evident as that. There is in Ontario a pnjvincial Vocational Guidance .- ssociation and some day there will be a Windsor Hranch because there are today many efforts of this nature being made here bv Service Clubs and intcreste l individuals includ¬ ing business and i)rofessional peoi)le. Then, if this short article has been an ins|)ira- tion to anyone who has read it, he may decide to study his own capabilities. i)ersonality. likes and lisiikes to determine if possible what is his forte. Me may be fortunate in deciding on a very clearly defined goal or he may feel that his goal lies within a broad phase of life’s activities in which his particular role is not yet clearly apparent. Then he will study his educational program and the way of evolving his plan through the most direct sequence of occupations. E ' rom various people and sources available to him he will learn job requirements, working conditions, remuneration, chances for advancement. lie should make many personal contacts, meeting people whose experience and advice will guide and hel]) him. -At any rate he should be a hapj)y adventurer on that long journey, knowing that the man with a plan and a thorough preparation for some definite useful .service will get o])])ortunitie.s— for him there are big rewards in the offing. llest of luck to Kennedy students! THE KENCOLL 1 9 4 0 5 ... MHMIMMMMIMMIIIIIIIIIIIMOIMMIMIMill ' llIttMIIIIIIIIIIIMMIMillUIIMIIIMIIIMIMMItMMlMilMIHIIM i ---- “AMERICA DEL SUD” hast summer. I visited the West Indies and South America. h ' ach ])ort of call—Nassau, Jamaica, Havana, the ’ir ;in Islands, I’uerlo Kico, Trinidad, Pernamhuco. l,a (luaira, Santos and many other.s—was different, and fascinat- inj;ly interesting, h ' ach of the fifty-three days at sea on the gotxl ship “Rotterdam” was as idle or energetic as one cared to make it, or as the pas.sagc from summer to winter and hack to summer again left one the energy to attempt. Lazy days afloat alternateil with crowded days ashore. It was a liberal education to see geography come to life in tropical jungles, w.aving i)alm trees, banana plantations, coffee farms, and a winter sky whose guiding constellation was not the Rig Dipper, l)ut the Southern Cross; to experience mythology come to life in the holding of Father Neptune’s Court at the cro.ssing t)f the h ' (|ualor: to observe science in the making at the snake farm which prejmres anti-venom scrum; to see modern motor traffic streamlined along eight-lane houlevarded parkways in handsome Ituenos . ires; to hear S|)anish, Portuguese, Dutch, Ivnglish, and—“talkie talkie”: and to see and meet pco])le cjf many nationalities and colours and ways of living. In the light of e ’ents since my return. I have often recalled the cruiser I ' -xeter on patrol at Nassau, the .Aja.x visiting in the Itrazilian ])ort of Hahia, the cold south wind tossing waves of the South . ' tlantic off the La Plata river. During that c.xciting week-end in December of the Craf S] ee scuttling 1 pictured the bright Itusy city of Mt)ntevidco. its fine port, miles of beaches and marine drives, its ex(juisite Legislative Palace, the special j)rogramme in the schools for the “professores Norte—.Americanos”,and the evident popidarity and influence (jf the British minister to L ' ruguay, the Hon. Eugene Millington Drake. I have remembered the F ' nglish Club at Buenos . ircs: the warm likin g for people and thitigs British we encounteretl in that sj)lcndid capital of .Argentina; the reports of .Nazi activity in the capital of Itrazil, the magnificent harbour and city of Rio de Janeiro over which the Christ of the Corcovada stretches protecting arms; the anti-Nazi .Austrian refugees we met in Pernam¬ buco; the ( ' •erman cruise ship, the Cidumbus, at St. ' I ' hcmas; the i)ort imprt)vcments being rushed to cfjiupletion at Trinidad as the British oil depot of the Caribbean; the increasing fre iuency of lifeboat drill; the growing an.xiety as the ships radio brought us re])orts of the approach of war. Relief, therefore, mingled with regret as our neutral Dutch ship arrived safely in New ' ork. ()n that very morning the (ierman liner New ' t ' ork hurried away without her passengers, the Bremen came in for those few tense days before she made her flash for .Murmansk, and the .Norm.andie brought Miss Bondy home and then df)cke l in neutral safety beside the Queen Mary. It is a pictures(|ue and interesting new world down there in “.America del .‘sud.” 1 hope many of you will see it s mie day. I know you would enjoy it as greatly as 1 did. —.Aileen Noonan. READING AND QUOTING What a famous essayist says about his “trade.” and about the difficulties and pleasures of it, is worth a passing thought. Charles Ivlward .Montague, b ' uglish journalist and essayist, has written: “Certainly if you know as few bffoks as 1 do, and like them as much, you will find they stand by you surprisingly well. fJften they will strike in. spontaneously, to your aid when, without a season.dtle ‘iiuote’, ytm might pass for a dtimb- dog in the day of trial. “ ' I ' hat is how Charles Lamb read the Bible— for delight; and that is how Sir Walter Scott read Sliakespeare—for delight. “Quite early in the history of medicine, doctors found out that a man could digest food best, if he ate it with pleasure among clieerful friends. “So it is with hooks. You may devour them by the thousand, swiftly ami grimly, and yet remain the lean soul that you were. The onl} ' mental food tb.at will turn to new tissue within yoti, and build itself into your mind, is that which you eat with a good surge of joy, with surprise that anything so exciting and delightful should ever have been written. “ ' I ' ff be amused by what you read—that is the great s])ring of happy ([notations. .A|)art from professional writers, think of people who have Iiad the conventional “good education. ' I ' lie difference between them is the difference between those who were tickled by what they studied, and those who were not tickled in the slightest. ' I ' he former may have been arrant idlers in school, and yet you will find them, at forty or fifty years of age, making the most diverting applications of “classical tags” to common life and ])ublic affairs. The untickled may have won scholar- shi])s, but before they are thirty they are dead to what they studied in their youth. “V hat 1 mean by real reading is not skimming, not being able to say with the world, ‘()h, yes. I’ve read that,’ but reading again and again in all sorts of moods, with an increase of delight every time, till the thing becomes a i)art of your .system, and goes forth along with you to meet any new experiences you may have.” So says .Montague. Perha])s, like ' rouchstone one might add, “Learn of the wise, and perpend!” —Miss C. R. Hewitt. 6 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK IMtlMIIHIIMHItMIMtMIIIIMiniilHIMIMMIIIMniMiltlMllllltllMIIMIIIIIIHMIlMMIMtlMIIIIMIIIIMIIMItllllllMlllltllMMMIIMMMMIIMMMMIIMIIIIMIIIIMIIIIitllMHIMIIMltinMMIIIIIIMHIMItlMIIMIIIMIHIMlI TEN YEARS AT KENNEDY In tile year 1929. Windsor Collcjfiate branched out once more. The student body crowded it to overflowiiifj for the fourth time in a decade— a new school had to he built, which became known as the Honorable W. C. Kennedy C. I., named after the late Hon. W. C. Kennedy, who represented Windsor in the King Cabinet as Minister of Railways and Canals. .Much thought was put into the location of this school by the I’oard of h ' ducation of 1928, and as time has proven, tlie site is most suitable. Jack.son I’ark makes a beautiful complement to a I ' uilding carefully planned in its architecture, and in its capacity for accommodation for both academic and athletic needs. The brilliant opening of the school on October 9th. 1929. at 11 a.m.. by X ' iscount and Viscountess Willingdon. is a day long to be remembered, ' riiousands of citizens of Windsor, as well as our students, crowded through the halls after the school had been opened with a golden key by the Governor - General of Canada. Since then, many celebrities have signed our Visitors’ Hook, among them Cord and Lady Bessborough. Lieutenant-Governor Dr. Bruce. Premier Fergu¬ son, Dr. Sim])son, Minister of Ifducation, and many others. One of the first events in the school was a contest to find a suitable motto. This gave rise to our present .-Mtiora Peto, translated by Mr. Hooper, who was then supervising principal, as “Hitch your wagon to a star.” From that time our Kennedy C. L has endeavoured to live up to this motto. F ' rom the year the school was opened to the present time, we have never been without a championship W.O.S.S.. . team of some kind, in athletics, .spelling, or public speaking. In the o])ening years—from 1930 to 19.M, the Girls’ Basketball team was a consistent W.().S.S.. . and j)rovincial championshi]) winner. In 1936 and 1937 the Senior boys won both the W.( .S.S.-A. and the Senior Provincial Championship. In 1938 the Junior team won the W.f).S.S.. . cham- pionshii). . ' poi ular sport from the outset has been swimming. In tbe last ten years tbe girls have lost the City Chami)ionship but once, and the boys very seldom. Outstanding swimmers have been developed in our i ooL which is one of the finest in the province. The Kerr family, Ruth and Gordon, became internationally known. Ruth represented Canada at the Olympics in Los . ngeles and Gordon in Germany. Gortlon also took part in the Briti.sh Ivmpire Games at Ham¬ ilton, Ontario, and .-Vustralia. Track teams from Kennedy have alwa 3 ' s been among tbe best. Man ' of our students have broken W.O.S.S.- ' V. records in track and field event.s, ,md have brought honour to ns at Pro- viuci;il track meets. I ' he most outstanding stars who attended Kennedy were John Loaring and Bill I ' ritz. Both of these bovs represented Canada at the Olympic games in Germanv. Bill was with us only a verv short time in 1929, and then transferred to Walkerville C. I., but John completed his five ye;irs with us and won a Sir .Arthur Curry Scholarship at the L ' niversity of Western Ontario. He was fortunate enough to be picked as one of the twelve bf)ys chosen to represent Canada at the Briti.sh Empire School¬ boy Track and Field Games, held in .Australia in 1934. He returned to Australia later to re})resent Canada in the British limpire Games. The colours he wore as a representative of our school in •Australia ma - be seen in our trojjh} ' case. Hockey was first introduced into our school by .Mr. Wills in 1933 and in the season of 33-34, the Junior team won the local district cham¬ pionship, but lost the final W.O.S.S..A. game to Stratford by a 3-2 score—a splendid showing for a new sport. Since then Kennedv has had a Senior and a Junior liockej ' team which have alwa ’S given a good account of themselves. One of our boj’S, Harold Jackson, since graduating from the school, has been jdaying professional hockey in the National or Inter - National League. Harold was. incidentallv, the Inter¬ mediate W.O.S.S..A. Track Chamirion in 1934 and broke the records for the high juni]) and the pole vault. The Rugb ' teams have alwaj ' s pla ' ed a prom¬ inent ])art in school sports. In 19.10, Kenned ’ Seniors won the local .grouj) title, and in 1931. the W.O.S.S..A. Championshii . .Again, in 19.16 and 1937, the Senior team won the W.( ).S.S..A. title. The Junior I ' ootball team, n ot to be 8 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK ....Ill.I...I.....Ill.........I.mil........ DiiUlonc, won the Junior V.( ).S.S.A. in 19.H :m l 19.?5, ainl also in 19.?8 and 1939. I ' lius in ten years, Kennedy Koothall teams won the V ’.( cliain])ionshii) seven times—a record that is hard to duplicate. In this .si)ort. as in the others mentioned, we have had many outstand- injr stars. Alf Hurley. Brian Casey. Joe Krol. Bill ’I ' emkow. and ' Pony Ciolah. ' Pile first four (jf these al.so won the Sir . rthur Currie Scholarship at the L’niversity of Western Ontario. W ith the introduction of Music to our curriculum in l‘ 37, a Cilee Clul) was formed, and a school orchestra was developed. We can hardly think of .Music in our school prior to this time without associatiiifi the name of Bernard Yuffy with it— Bernie. as he is familiarly known. to|arether with his hrother, Murray, wrote our present school stno ' . Bernie and Walter ' Pronianko were honoured hy heiiifj chosen as two of four ()ntario schoolhoys to represent Canada in a British I ' .mpire Boys’ Hand at hondon, lvnj,dand. We continue to have outstandinjj musicians in our school, and this year, Donald MacCuaig was invited to go to New York to play over a National Radio I look-up. (Iratory has been a high light at Kennedy and no little credit can he given to the teachers of the h ' .nglish Department for developing .such outstanding winners in W.().S.S.. ' . competitions as William Lowe. Dick C.rayhiel. C.wyneth New- hold. Kenneth McIntyre, Jack Wheelton, .Mhert Cohen and Joan Hathaway. In this lime Kennedy has won the Junior Oratorical shield oftener than anv other school in Western )ntario, and thereby holds it in |)ermanent |)ossession. The school has alwa s been proud of our orators and essay writers. On many occasions «)ne or two students have won monetary prizes for writing essays. Imt it was not until this year, 1940, that Kennedy won prizes almost wholesale. In the Hydro h ' ssay contest, Kennedy students won twenty-three prizes amounting to si.xty-seven dollars, tint of a possible total of fifty-four i»rizes—a truly remark- al l ' feat. ' I ' he growth of the student body has heem very great. ' Phe school opened with a few more than six humlred students and this year our enrolment was over one thousand. Only once before in our .school’s history has this been the case. New teachers have been engaged from time to time, until we now have a staff of thirty-two. including our school nurse and the teachers of Home h ' co- noinics and Manual ' Praining. .Many of our students graduate with first class honours and each year sees several students winning University awards. ' Phe Sir .Arthur Currie Scholarship has been won by Kennedy boys five times; its winning depends on both academic and athletic ability. It has been our privilege to have a .scholarship student return to our school as a teacher of Classics—Miss I lughes. ICvery student should strive towards the goal of schoiarshii). . ll may not win, bnt in the striv¬ ing much success is gained. ' Phe efforts put forth and the habits formed are likely to carry over into other fields of endeavour. 1 have confidence that in future years Kenne ly C. I. will contimie to send out stinlents wlu) will bring honour and distinction to their .Alma Mater. So many activities devekip in a school the size of ours, that it is difficult to enumerate all. ' Phe Dramatic Society annually entertains the student body with its fine productions. ' Phe Literary Society, the League of Nations C.roup, the Junior Red Cross, the Chess Club, the Current Kvents Club, the Christian I ' ellowship Club, the Radio Club, the Camera Club and the Stamp Club are some of the organizations that have helped foster the sjiirit of good fellowship which has prevailed throughout the school since it was organized. In 19.?0 .Mr. .A. (L Hooper was called to the Department of lulucation in ' Poronto to become one of the High School Inspectors. .Mr. (L S. Campbell, the Vice-I’rincipal, then became prin- cijial. He held this position until November of 19.R), whe n he was appointed Superintendent of Schools for the City of Windsor. It was during .Mr. Campbell’s first year as Principal that the Forum was r»rganized. It is made up i ( the student body who elect their own officers at a general election in September each year. ' Phese officers, representing each grade in the school, a«hninister all student activities, through various committees, which raise money through dances and sports to finance trips of school teams, buy uniforms and awards, and sui»ply special needs of the school not otherwise provided. Mr. Knapp has acted as a capable adviser from its inception, bnt itearly every teacher in the school is associ¬ ated with it through committees. .Mr. Campbell was succeeded by .Mr. Leonard Wheelton, Princii)al of Patterson Collegiate Institute, who carried on in his usual efficient manner and maintained the high standards of his predecessors. ' Phe untimely death of .Mr. Camj)- bell in July, PH9, w:is very keenly felt by .all who had been associated with him ; the schools, especially Kennedy, lost a very dear friend, and the community at large an outstanding educator. In September of that year. Mr. Wheelton was .il)pointed by the Board of Ivducation to take up the duties of Superintendent of Schools and he, in turn, was succeede l by the jiresent Principal. .A decade has passed. I have tried to tell of some of the accomplishments of our school, but the future lies ahead. ' Phe last ten years were } ears of peace, but now that dread monster VY.ar iias raised its head and interfered with normal life, let us pray that we may be able to continue our democratic ways and hope that not loo many jf us may have to give our lives in serving its cause. We must be free. We must carry on our institutions as in the past. Our girls and boys must bear the t(jrch for the generations to come. VN ' hat sacrifices we may endure are not yet written, but what ever they be. I believe our stu¬ dents. instillerl with the desire to live u]) to the past, will accomplish greater deeds and write new records in the years to come. —.A. ]■ ' . S. ( ' iill)crt.

It is now the time to look hack and examine oiir ])ast activities, and to take note of any way in which they may he imprcjved. •And what is in more need of imiirovement than our school spirit. In past years, the .Athletic Committees have annually been able to report sizeable financial dividends. ' Phis year, however, the stor} ' has been sadly different—and why?— r.ecause of insufficient student support. Three thousand less stmlents saw Kennedy basketball allies in 1940 than in 19.58. .And yet our dances have attracted larger crowds than ever before. .Are Kennedy students all becomiiifj socialites or do they hold themselves above supportinj the teams? It is ;i positive fact that the Kennedy teams are of the same fisjhtin ' calibre as their ])re lecessors. Our teams proved the bijjj est stumblinjj ' blocks in the path of the ultimate victors in both basketball and football. 1 venture to say, that, if our teams had consistently had the supi)ort they desired, the Sr. Ru dw trophy and possibly the Sr. Basketball trophy would ■low be reposiiifj in our show-case. It’s a down- rif,du crime to expect the boys to win while playiufj before rows of empty seats, where scores of enthusiastic boosters ought to be sitting. I agree that a team which consistently loses, and in so doing, shows poor form and complete indifference to the outcome should not expect your sujiport. But when has such a team sup¬ ported Kennedy—NMCVER! On .Ajiril 15th. over OO students jammed the gym. to witness the spectacle of our Sr. basket¬ ball team versus the men teachers. Where were all these supporters during the season just completed? Students, are you being fair with your fellow members? Can you give anv concrete rea.son for your attitude of complete indiffer¬ ence? If so, please let us know. L ' ndoubtediv there is .something lacking here—be it a compe¬ tent cheer leader, or what. I can ' t say. But it’s ui) to us to solve this jiroblem and pull ourselves out of the doldrums. Remembering that oft- rejieated phrase L ' nited we stand, divided we fall.” let’s all plan to throw our full support behind every school activity in the future. With but little space left me. 1 should like to mention the achievements of this year’s Imriim. It was through your Forum that student theatre cards were introduced to Windsor. This Maga¬ zine which I hope you are now enjoying would be impossible without the financial backing of the I ' orum.

Boiupiets should be also given to the social committee for the fine dances it has put on this year, and for keejiing the Forum well sup])lied with funds. Sjiace will not permit me to mention the achievements of the other committees indi¬ vidually. but all deserve your plaudits for their yeomanlike service. Finally you will be interesteil to know that the h ' oruni has ap] ro.xiniately $400 in the treas¬ ury. This must lie spent before school adjourns as it is against the h ' orum Constitution to hold over money to the next year.

ADVICE TO THE NINTH-GRADERS While chatting the other day with some gnids and filth-formers. I brought iip the .subject of the lower school. The verdict was in.stantaneoiis and imanimous. They arc a lot of impolite and distasteful brats. Fifth- formers arc had enough hut the lower .school is terrible. Most of the remarks were blasphemous but milder ones were If one more of those kids goes between my legs, I’ll -. Look at that one; he has to stand on tip¬ toe to drink at the fountain.” When I he atmosphere had cleared and the ruffled feathers had settled hack into place, we reviewed the item of ninth-graders attending the big school dances. Definitely they shouldn ' t he there. The reason, you a.sk? Merely prejudice perhap.s—hut the answer remains the same. •A few rules are sure to do no harm and indeed may he of invaluable assistance to the nninitiated of the ninth grade. Ill the halls and doorways, remember to stay in single file (after all, it ' s a rule). .At noon, obey the prefects. On you too may fall the onerous task of uphohling law and order some day. (That means you may be a prefect yourself some day). Bowing low when a teacher or an Upper School student goes by has gone out of style hut I ' .mily Post tells me that a little common ccurteSN goes a long way. If you must chew gum (you never sec Upper School students giving in to sucli a habit) do your extercise with it between clas.se.s and then deposit it within the awaiting receptacle, called a waste¬ basket. (If you are tardy, the teacher will probably remind you). The main reason you arc at school is, of course, to learn something. However, the school hoard doesn ' t mind your showing a mild sort of interest in athletics. If it’s too itiucli bother to get out and work for a posi¬ tion on one of the teams, at least get out and give the teams your whole-hearteil support. Regular attend- ers at our games this year have been rewardeil by some of the closest and most exciting games that any one could ask for. Now, one last piece of advice given to me by my friend Confticious: Don’t lake any wooden nickels.” —Sandy .McOaw Smart Clothes for Students Always Head the “Honor Roll” in Style and Value . . .

A child who does not have the desire to play is usually not considered normal. . s bodily development c«)ntinnes. the need of physical activity becomes more and more neces.sary. This physcal activity }fradnally revpiires supervision and discipline which in a large measure is obtained in the schools. When a boy attains high school age his physi¬ cal energy requires an outlet. Many students do not jiarticijiate in athletics due to fear of criticism or ridicule by their associates. Many boys are self-conscious and hesitate to try their hand at games because they fear their efforts will not lead to jierfection. (Occasionally we meet boys who do not wish to exert the energy re(|uired for participation in games. Such students are few in the lower forms but are (juite common in our upper school classes. There are pupils in our fifth forms who never held a baseball bat, never caught a softball, never scored a basket nor made a tackle. There are naturally boys who dislike team games but there are otlier sports in which they may participate. In spite of this fact, the same students referred to above have never swung a golf club, never wielded a tcnni.s racket nor dived six feet of clear water. In one physical education class composed of fifth form students several informed me that their only exercise is dancing. Now dancing is undoubtedly a splendiil form of recreation ami has its jilace in social life. However the exce.ss energy which is contained in the body of the normal boy reipiires a stronger outlet than dancing. In general, boys who do not eliminate the sur|)lus energy are the ones wlm roam the streets without sujiervision or otherwise get into difficidtics. ' I ' lie modern higli school offers an attractive program of athletics which should appeal to every normal youth. Twenty years ago the athletic jirogram of most schools was extremely limite l due to lack of eeptipment and lack of knowledge concerning the benefits of a balanced physical eilncation course. With few exceptions there was little coaching as we know it today. In Kennedy Cidlegiate there are programs of both team games and individual activities. It is realized that every student has different tastes in athletics as in other things. With all the activities now offered in this school every boy should be able to par¬ ticipate in some physical e.xercise which appeals to him. Not only are there school teams which compete in extramural schedules, but there are also intramural activities within the reach of every high school boy. Kennedy Collegiate is fortunate in the extent of its e |uipment and yet there are a large number of our students who do m)t avail themselves of the privileges jiro- vitled. Many of our npiver school boys are even toil iiuhdeni to remove their clothes for a swim. Swimming is an activity which is generally- regarded as the finest form of exercise. Other athletics conducted in this school include tennis, pingpong, softball, water polo, football, soccer, track and field events, and basketball. In selecting the members of school teams a number of candidates .are naturally eliminated, ' riiere are always numerous candidates for junior teams and a shortage for senior teams. . ny boy who is not cho.sen for a schotd team should not be discouraged and should make another attempt as soon as ])ossil)le. ivven if he is never selected to represent his schtiol, he is bound to derive some benefit which will aid him in the future. He will at least have a knowledge of that jiar- ticular sport. l or the stu dent who cannot attain the necessary skill to become a member of a team, there is always ample opportunity in intramural competition. In the past two or three years we have had difficulty in obtaining a suf¬ ficient number of participants to compete in intramural schedules, jiarticularly in the middle and upper school classes. When it is considered that interform games include basketball, football, softball, tennis, track and field. ping|)ong, swim¬ ming, etc., there can be little excuse for lack of participation except indifference. Kven though students do not desire to par¬ ticipate actively in sports they can always jiartici- l)ate as spectators. The boy who is not even interested in witnessing an athletic contest is below average. When school teams compete against other schools in various sports there is plenty of oi i ortimity for the student body to support their representatives. In Kennedy Col¬ legiate there is a large part of the .student body which is absolutely indifferent to school activities. The benefits of athletics are generally recog¬ nized as essential to the average boy. I ' lealthful growing bodies retjuirc the exercise jirovidcd by games. .Xthletics not only j)rovide an ijutlet for youthful energy, but also provide development mentallx and spiritnally. Team games teach a boy the meaning of co-operation, sportsmanshi] and friendshij). . thletes learn early to show con¬ sideration for others. They become accustomed to discipline, .so necessary in ordinary life. Youths who have participated in athletics find little difficulty in making associates in new circum¬ stances. .Athletes arc constantly striving for perfection, which is the goal in any vocation they follow after graduation. The criticism is often given that athletes neglect acamedic work in favour of sports. It should be noted however that students rcfiuire a ])ass to partiepate in games. There are numerous students who lo not play games of any kind and still fail to obtain a ]i.assing standard. In athletics, strength, ability and mental alertness are matched. .Ml athletics recjuire a competitive spirit and in a growing boy the devclo])mcnt of this spirit is absolutely es.sential. The basic principle of all athletic competitions is that of the Olympic (lamcs: to develop a higher type of maidujod. —Mr. ( ' leorge Chapman.

I ' harirnek. H.Se.. in The Itueheinr. ' I ' he tlemcnt called Woman is a member of the htiiiian family and has been assigned the chemical symbol of Wo. The accepted atomic weight is 120, although a number of isotoiies have been identified, having weights ranging frtim y5-4(R), Occurrence—It is abundant in nature and fotiinl both free and combined, usually associated with Matt. That fouml in one ' s own locality is iirefcrred. Physical Properties —A number of allotropic forms have been observed, their density, transparency, hard¬ ness. colour and boiling-iioints varying within wide limits. The colour exhibited by many siiecimens is a surface phcnomenoii, and is usually due to closely adhering powder. It has been found that an unpolished specimen teinls to turn green ' in the iircseiice of a highly polished one. The boiling-point for some varieties is (|uite low, while others are likely to freeze at any moment .Ml varieties melt under proper treatment. The taste varies from sweet to very bitter, ileiiending upon environment and treatment. Chemical Properties—Wo absorbs, witbout dissolving, in a number of liipiiils, the activity being greatly increased by alcohol. Seemingly unlimited (piantities of expensive fo id can also be ab.sorbed. Some varieties catalyse this food into fat in accordance with the formula PV:=nRT. Many naturally-occurring varieties are highly’ magnetic. In general, the magnetism varies inversely with the cube of it.s age. Some varieties tend to form . nne-inns. others Cat-ions. Their ionic migrations vary widely. .All vari¬ eties exhibit a great affinity for .Ag. .An, and Pt, and for precious stones both in the chain and ring struc¬ tures. The valence towards these substances is high and its study is complicated by the fact that its residual valence is never satisfied. .Many stable and unstable unions have been described, the latter in the daily iiress. Some varieties are highly explosive, and are exceedingly ilangcrous in inexperi¬ enced bands, in general, they tend to explode spon¬ taneously when left alone by man. The application of pressure to different specimens of Wo produces such a variety of results as to defy the (irinciples of Le Chatelier. L ' ses—Highly ornamental, wide aiiplication in the arts anil flomestic sciences, .Acts as positive or negative catal ’st, as the case may be. I’seful as a tonic in the alleviation of suffering, sickness, low s| irits, etc., etc. Efficient as a cleaning agent. aiid as an eipializer of the distribution of wealtb. It is probably the most power¬ ful (income) reducing agent known.

T i(lay it is the tonrtli farnest city in Ontaiio with a population of over 10(1,000 and stand- iiiK fourth in value of industrial production in Cana la. Windsor plays an important part in |)ronu tinK and partici| atinK in the forciKii tra le of onr Dominion. It lias hecome an attractive locality for .Vincrican firms desiring to exjiand their c. |iort hnsiness in the British Kmpire, and since the Imperial Kconomic Conference, many linns have h ' cated here and Windsor has hecome the centre for many classes of commodities manufac¬ tured ill Canada for export within the Em|)ire and to those countries with which Canada enjoys a preferential tariff. Seventy-three new firms have located in Windsor dnrint; the iiast six years. With few exceptions these industries are of .-Xmerican ori){in. In 1‘ .I6 the value of exports from Windsor amonnieil to approximately $24,IKH),()()0. Motor vehicles alone accounted for $iy,(K)(l,(MM) of the above total. The Iml- toilet preiiarations. washing comiiounds, and paints and varnishes. This Kroup of industries is constantly e.X| and- inn both in nnmhers and production, and comprises a very important section of the entire Canadian iiulnstry of this nature. The vcKctahle products industry is hecomiiiK iiicrcas- imtly im)iortant also. The larttesl section is that manu¬ facturing alcoholie lieveraKcs. Other urouiis of indus¬ tries in this class manufacture camicd vesetahles, soups, and fruits, cereals, flavouring extracts, bakery products, ami confectionery. All tidd .12 companies are ciiKatted in this line of work. The next class of industry of iniporlanee is classified as manufacturiuK non-mctaliic mineral products. Thirty- seven comiKinies are enttaKeil in producing the folhiwinn: Cement products, chiefly blocks and artificial stone, hnilders ' supplies, clay products, as brick and tile, silica brick, carbonated beverages, salt from natural local deposits, foundry faciiiRS, fireplace furnishiiiKS, and chlorinalors. ' I ' here is an extensive wholesale business in kIuss for bottles and for aniotmdtilcs, and in oil and gasoline. Class, though processed here, is not yet mann- ance is made up of such commodities as automobile and truck iiarts. cosmetics, scales, paints and varnisbes. adding machines, battery containers, structural steel, cereals. sprayiiiK ecpii| nient, lahelliuK machines, tool handles, playing cards, cleaniiiK compounds, gaskets, cranes, hoists, mechanical brass goods, paper boxes, but¬ tons, pumiis, distilled liipiors, special dyes, drugs, light and heavy chemicals, cloth caps and gloves, soa))s, canned fruit and vegetables. Phis list demonstrates the varied manufactured products exported from this area. While the manufacturing estahlisbmcnts in Windsor produce an extremely wide range of commodities, the most important groni is engaged in the manufacture or iron and steel products. Approximately 8(1 per cent, of the industrial employees in this community arc associated with this general class of iinlustry. Moreover, this branch of Windsor industry contributes a com¬ paratively large share to the total cniidoyment of labor engaged in the production of iron and steel i)ro lucts in Canada. Windsor is the automobile manufacturing centre of Canada. ' Phe Ford Motor ComiKiny of Canada, l.imiteil. the Chrvsler Corporation of Canada, Limited, the Stnde- hakcr Corporation of Canada, Limited, the (Iraliam- I’aige .Motors (Canada) Limited, and the Packard Motor Car Company of Canada, Limite l, have their chief Cana¬ dian establishments in our city. The Oeneral Motors of Canada. Limited. Inive a very large and exi)anding plant located here. In addition, there are over thirty plants manufacturing automobile |)arts and accessories in Windsor. .Also manufactured or processed here arc rolled steel products, including hriilge and structural steel by the Canadian Bridge Comi«any, Limited, steel products by the L. A. Young Industries of Canada, Limited, and steel |)rodncts of fourteen smaller plants. Another very important group of industries is manu¬ facturing chemical and allied products. ' Phirty-three plaitts are engaged in this work, many of which arc .American hranclics. They produce lirpiid chlorine and caustic soda, from inexhaustible mineral dci)osits under¬ lying the Windsor region, drugs and patent medicines, facti:ied in Windsor, and there are no oil refineries. The wood and i ulp paper |irodncts industry is assum¬ ing a greater relative un) ortanre each year, over thirty eonipanies now being engaged in this class of inann- factnring. These companies arc producing the follow¬ ing: Wooricn boxes, jraper boxes, corrugated paper, boxes and fillers, crates, builders ' supplies and lumiicr, |)lay- ing cards, brooms, caskets, wooden handles, and print¬ ing. While many of these companies are relatively small, a total of apiiroxiinately l.bOO cmirloyees are main¬ tained by them. What is known in Canada as the non-ferrous metal l ro hicts industry has 12 manufacturing representatives in Windsor, their production consisting of aluminum, brass ami copi)er pr» ilncts, clectricid aiiparatus and sup¬ plies, anil precious metal products. ' Phe textile industry has ten rciiresentatives, manu¬ facturing wearing api arel. mattresses and bedding, awnings and tents. hurla|) and cotton hags, and welts, gii ' ilis and bindings, for antomoliiles. ' Phis class of industry, while relatively small, is steadily developing. ' Pile final general classification of Canadian industry— the animal products division—has at present six rciirc- sentatives in Windsor, manufaeturing dairy products and sausages. In iidilition to the foregoing general classifictition into which Canadian industries are roughly divided, over a dozen other manufacturing companies are established in W ' indsor i roilucing miscellaneous products, such as artificial ice. rules and tapes, toilet articles, and |vaint s|)raying eipiipment. Despite the fact that the industrial life of Wind.sor is of comparatively recent development and the largest increase has been in the automotive trade, it will be noted from the foregoing that a wide range of com¬ modities is now manufactured. This is constantly being augnientcd. ,A total of 282 comiianies are in operation in W ' indsor at time of writing. Hmployment here has inertased more ra|)i«lly, during the (last few years, than in any ether city in Canada. I[ j Lassalinc. Windsor Chamber of Commerce.

Sovran were the only veterans of the team, while Stankus, Hales and Granziol were playing their first year in Kennedy colours. Mr. George Chapman coached both the basketball teams. House League Basketball An it.novation this year to take the place of inter¬ form competition, the house league proved to he a decideil improvement. More boys were given an oppor¬ tunity to show their talent, and comi etition was made keener. The league consisted of ten teams, with the first five teams entering the iilayoffs. The team cap¬ tained by Poster New finished the regular schedule in first place and went on to win the league champion¬ ship. Members of the winning team were E. New, J. Long, J. Bodo, L. Kropp, E. Kudko, and B. Gorski. Some of the other outstanding idayers in the league were .Adams, Gibbs, Bezairc, Learniouth and Hobbs. Midget Basketball This league, composed of six teams, is carried on for the benefit of boys, who. because of their lack of weight, are unable to participate on other teams.

Due to percentages and illnesses the team was hardly at its best in any of its game.s. The girls were noted for their good sportsmanship througliout the season. The ninth and tenth graders on the team have shown so much promise that Miss Hamilton holds high hopes for a championshi]) team in a year or .so. We’re behind you, girls! Kennedy swimmers dominated the city meet and scored enough points to enable us to come out on top in iKith the boys ' and the girls ' sections. The boys held a margin of eight points over the nearest competitor but the girls just no.sed out Walkcrville by a single point. Congratulations are in order for Keith McEwen who won the senior boys’ championship and for Jessie Duck who captured the intermediate girls’ crown. IDEAL KENNEDY GIRL-FRIEND Eyes—Eleanor Hanrahan.

ADVICE TO THE LOVE-LORN Dear Miss Hortense DeBris:— My boy friend is very attentive and takes me every¬ where. Do you think he will always be like that? Yours, lary .Ann Repent. Dear Mary Ann Repent:— I’d like to say “yes,” Mary .Ann Repent, but men change after marriage and only want an easy chair and slippers. I’ve seen many a gay dog change from hunter” to setter” in no time at all. Dear Hortense:— My boy friend is a fine dancer but a poor conversa¬ tionalist .About all he ever .says is “Gosh, all hemlock.” Wouldn’t that become tiresome? Yours, Oliva Dither. Dear Oliva Dither:— A’ou’re wrong there O.D. That expression shows he knows his .Ancient History. Remember Socrates was condemned to death and ordered to take i)oison. He told his slave to mix him a drink of hemlock and ale. The slave was so nervous that he forgot the ale and when Socnites tasted it, he said, Gosh, all hemlock!” So you see, my dear lady, that you should thank your stars, that one so well read would he bothered with you at all. SOCIAL On December 2ind, the annual Commencement Dance took the form of the Tenth .Anniversary Birthday Ball, in the gymnasium. Blue and silver decorations were used throughout. On each of the si. baskets were huge birthday cakes, while in the centre of the floor there was a large white cake, illuminated by ten pink ctindlcs. Silver Christmas trees with blue lights stood on each side of the orchestra stand. The whole pre.sented a very attractive appearance. Gertrude White and .Albert Mitchell provided the special entertainment of the evening. .A mimher of the grads, who are away at school, came home to the affair. .A successful tea-dance was held on February 20th, following the exhibition basketball game with Cranhrook. The newly-formed school dance orchestra was the main attraction and deserves a lot of credit for its work. Gossip has it that Don Wilson has taken time off from his studies at K.C.l. and in spending several weeks in Florida. Georgena F’alls enjo3 ' ed a trip to New Orleans and Florida during the Easter vacation, while Jim Jones also spent two weeks in the south. On March 15th over four hundred defenseless males were forced from the side lines and dragged on to the dance tloor by their feminine admirers. .Amidst a setting of blue and gold decorations, these unfortunate young men tri|)ped the light fantastic until twelve-thirty. The feature of the evening was a solo by Ethelwyii Lust- garten. The occasion was the tenth annual K-Hop, a roundabout, with the girls paying the bills. With the Easter holidays just past, we are still mind¬ ful of the many good times we had. The festivities began w ' ith the Junior Haverhill Club’s eighth annual Easter Parade at Lakewood Golf Club on March 23rd. Then in rajrid order followed the .Aero Club Dance, the •Assumiition .Alumni Dance, and the DeMolay Dance.

WINDSOR PUBLIC LIBRARY 26 THEKENNEDYYEAR-BOOK ....I.I.I...Illllllllllill SCHOOL ACTIVITIES The Literary Society The Executive of the Literary Society was elected at an open meeting early in the fall. It is coniiKised of ten members under the presidency of Maurice St. Aubin, ably assisted by Ethelwyn Lustgarten as secretary. The first Lit” meeting was held in December, at which Ned Carrington anti Forrest Rogers presented some of the fourth and fifth form talent that they had gathered together. The second meeting was a short one-act play Buddy Buys an Orchid.” It was directed by Albert Cohen and June Reid with the help of Mr. Riggs- However, since the New Year, the work of the Society has been mostly confined to the task of putting forth the second edition of the “KcncoH —and believe me, students, this has been a task. Three Cheers for the Literary Society! The Glee Club The Glee Club is continuing splendidly again this year under Mr. Wass ' direction. The i)resident is Kathleen Prophet and the secretary, Louise Butt. The club was first heard this year at our commencement exercises singing My Hero and All Through the Night.” At the Music Festival at Walkerville Collegiate on March 14th they made a splendid showing. Their selec¬ tions were “The Pilgrim ' s Chorus” and Nightfall.” The Glee Club presented two talented singers, Shirley Brad¬ ley and George Redden, in the solo parts of “Nightfall.” ' But all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” so to relieve the monotony, these .songsters went skat¬ ing on River Canard, returning to cat on home territory in the cafeteria—for. of course, they had to eat. Oli. yes, this Glee Club of ours is a very busy organization. The Orchestra When the orchestra met in September, a new e.xecti- tivc was elected. Jack Jewell became president aitd Forrest Rogers secretary. Under the able leadership of Mr. Wass, more progress lias been made than in former years. The orchestra entertained at numerous assembli ' es throughout the year, as w-ell as playing for the school play and open night. Let us not forget the splendid wav in wdiich it represented Kennedy at the Music Festival—the best showing yet made by a Keti- nedv Orchestra. Through the kind consent and co-operation of our princijial. Mr. Gilbert, a new sehool dance orchestra was « rganized. The students have enjoyed this swing orchestra and are anxious to bear more of it. Let ns hope that this year’s successes in the orches¬ tral work may be continuetl next year. The musicians who comprised this year’s orchestra were: Violins, IGaiiic Perrault, Klso Bchineariol. Bob Wilson, Walter .Martyniuk, Walter Tronianko; cornets, David Sparks, Steve Freisinger. Jack Jewell; saxo¬ phones. Jack Gordon, Bill Colledge, Ellen Balnian; clarinets, Stuart Walker, Forrest Rogers. Louis Zawad- ski; accoidions. Bob Newman, Jean .-Vpplehy; bass violin, Ray Parsons; tromlxinc, Don .MacCuaig; drums, Colley John.son, E 1 Baxter; piano. Hazel Solomon. Kennedy Kamera Club This year the camera club is under the able super¬ vision of Mr. Thompson. This year’s president is Harry Weller, and its secretary, June New. Doug Mc.Mlister is bu.siness manager. In case you have ever wondered about what goes on in the dark room—here ' s the dope. It is open to all boys on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Mon¬ day the dark room is used exclusively by the girls. E.x- ccllent results have been obtained, judging froin the pictures entered in recent snapshot contests. This club is a source of much pleasure to all those who have a camera. The Dramatic Society The Dramatic Society helped a great deal in adding a bit of gaiety to our daily grind with the presentation on March 7th’ and 8th of Our Girls, an hilarious three act comedy. It certainly was gaiety, judging from the state of collapse in wfiich most of us were, due to so much laughter. Norma Zamparo’s portrayal of the hard-boiled neighbour, Mrs Wattles, provided some of the highlights of the play, as did the excellent accent of Lucy Kuse, as the Sw-edish maid. Bob Trindcr, Nick Chomyshyn and Wally Fletcher made splendid girls as they dressed up for the benefit of their “ pieer” aunt. Phyllis Lavery. Ethelwyn Lustgarten and . lbcrt Cohen as the agitated parents, Mr. and -Mrs. Elmer Lovejoy. were very realistic. .-Mso. credit is due to Claire Deziel ami John Seiber as Mrs. Wattles ' children. Then, of course, we don’t forget the director. Thank you, Mr. Riggs—from everyone. The Kennedy Discussion Group Now that so mucli is happening in the world, we find ourselves at a loss to keep up with current events. However, there is in the school a group of students who meet every Wednesday at four to discuss the rapidly changing course of events. Every week, each student receives a topic to investigate and reiiorts his results at the next meeting. In this way they fiiul themselves more easily able to understand what is going on around them. The president of the society is Ned Carrington, the secretary, ' Pheresa Kadman. Mr. Walter fills the posi¬ tion of staff advisor.

Joan Chandler, it has l)ceii noticed, spends many week¬ ends in Kssex and the attraction, we are led to believe, isn ' t the buttermilk. When the inspector came into the 9F history roojn, a boy answered a (piestion using the word stuff. Watch out. Ttrrv, it may lead to something. Wind.sor was well represented in Major Bowes ' Amateur Hour by Don MacCuaig. Don came second in the competition. He al.sp takes part in our school activi¬ ties—swimming, football and basketball. Some jealous lt)F girl covered Handsotne” Bob Davy ' s geometry set with the initials “G.B. Bob, who is a good actor .says that he can ' t imagine whose these initials are but we know—don ' t we? In spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of—no, not studying—but a i retty brunette. I’hyllis Turner. Roderick Ross blushes .so easily—he ' s just .self-conscious. Marie Iglodan has finally con |ucred the baffling gen¬ ders of the fifth declension. For the latest and most numerous jokes see Bob (Confucious) Richardson. Don Howie has a democratic view in that he .solemnly believes in free speech. Cliff Neighbour is standing clear of danger—he knows that Julius Caesar was slain for being ambitious. Hazel Lenardon and Mr. Thompson have something in common—neither one has ever made bread. Katherine White believes in tliat old adage— There ' s soiT.ething about a .soldier.” lOF might not know much about Canadian History, hut one thing they can ' t help but know, because of constant reminding, is that Miss janes ' gran li arents came to Canada on the Grand Trunk Railway and settled in the Talbot Settlement. The .kssiimption College pin that Betty Hyltenrauch wears iiear her heart isn ' t her brother ' s. Incidentally Betty isn ' t the only one that thinks Assumption boys are superior to Kennedy ' s. Mary Reynolds ' happy little motor goes faster than .Abbie can .skate when she hears the name of .A.ssumption mentioned. The theory of the fire-extinguisher is at the pre.sent time a ticklish i)robIcm in lOF. It is the (|Uc.stion that will be approaclied with caution by Mr. Thompson for some lime to come, for well he must remember tbe len.so debate he experienced with Bud Bezaire all one period over whether the carbon dioxide formed in a fire extinguisher did any actual extinguishing or not. Hud had obtained a written prix)f from the fire chief of Windsor to verify his argument but Mr. Thomp.son also bad the backing of an unbeatable argument and the textbook. And so the two sides still remain in battle, both holding out with eipial confidence. Bud and the fire department who say that CO., has no value tyhatever in the extinguishing of a lire with an ex¬ tinguisher vs. Mr. Thomiison and the textbook who say that the CO, formed in a fire extinguisher cannot hel]! but aid in the extinguishing of the fire. One morning Rena Peltier came to school exception¬ ally tired. To the teachers it just looked like another late night out but the truth is that she was out .ALL night. She came home late and found herself locked out and so Rena was obliged to sleep on the porch. Her Dad biought her in the next morning with the milk. Hazel Stone wonders if her famous nickname Rocky will ever be forgotten.

Uccause of the ashc.s on the end of the cigarette, the carbon dioxide can gel MO oxygen and thus forms carhon monoxide. This carbon monoxide, which is poisonous, passes into the lungs and then into the blood stream. In the blood stream the carhon mono.xide kills the red corpuscle.s.
