BUILDING A TEMPLE
A builder builded a temple,
He wroughtbit with grace and skill
Pillars and groins and arches l
All fashioned to work his will.
Men said as they saw its beauty.
"It shall never know decay.
Great is thy skill, O builder:
Thy fame shall endure for aye."
A teacher builded a temple
With loving and infinite care,
Planning each arch with patience,
Laying each stone with prayer.
None praised her unceasing efforts
None knew of her wonderous plan
For the temple the teacher builded
Was unseen by the eyes of man.
Gone is the builder's temple,
Crumbled into the dust:
Low lies each stately pillar,
Food for consuming rust.
But the temple the teacher builded
Will last while the ages roll,
For that beautiful unseen temple
Is a child's immortal soul.

Whether or not school "keeps." they keep house
MR. PHILLIP DOHERTY, who at the moment
the above picture was taken was industriously
polishing the top ol a desk, has been an em-
ploye of the Muskegon Heights Schools for the
past 30 years or more. In general, he is in
charge ol the lirst iloor maintenance work and
does a thorough job ot seeing that floors, walls,
and desks are kept spic and span every day of
the week. His ancestors came from Ireland in
Indian days, perhaps that accounts for the
twinkle in his eye. tShou1d we say, also, the
thinness of his hair?l "Phil" is a friend to all
who come his way and, il you really care for
funny stories, just start him going!
MRS. CAROLINE CHRISTIANSEN was born in
Spring Lake, Michigan, in 1885. She attended
Muskegon schools. Mrs. Christiansen has three
daughters and two sons, one ol whom CWalterl
was a star end on our football team. One son
and one daughter were graduated from our high
school. She has lived in this vicinity lor the
past 30 years, and has worked for the Board of
Education ol Muskegon Heights High School since
1928, as cook and "clean-up" lor the cafeteria
and girls' rest rooms. Always cheeriul, Mrs.
Christiansen says she is most lond ol movies and
lootball games: says she used to dance.
MR. ALBERT CRUSE, second lloor custodian,
is shown here in a characteristic pose. He is
diligently cleaning the lloor of the second lloor
corridor, the surface ol which, more likely than
not, was covered with dirt and littered with
papers during the day. He goes about his work
systematically: for him the right way is the
only way to do it. He has two daughters, both
graduates ol Muskegon Heights High School. He
has lived in this city since 1916. What does he
like to talk about? Everything that's worth while,
but always baseball, music. or art. His exper-
ience has been broad in the line ol manual arts.
WHO IS HE? Don't you know? Why, it's Bill,
our engineer. Most of you students never see
much of him because he works down in the
basement . . . 'way down below . . . with the
boilers and the coal shovels and the furnace.
When we do catch a glimpse ol him he cer-
tainly isn't dressed in his "Sunday-go-to-meetin' "
clothes, and his lace! Well, it could stand a
good washing! In the picture shown above,
Bill is demonstrating the way in which he keeps
us warm through all those cold winter days. In
the spring he is kindly requested to "1ay oft"
and "go cut the grass." He does both things
well. Bill Phillips built Phillips Field.
