We are still cherishing the belief of its lofty ideals. VVe are still realizing the many benefits, and the background which Starkey has given us for our future lives. We have striven herein to produce a piece of work which we think to be of the highest order. We have labored hard to carry on the good work which our predecessors so nobly undertook. We have combined our efforts without faltering. From the highest to the subordinate offices, we extend our appreciation for those services received. To those who have contributed any por- tion of this, our annual, we take great pleasure in stating that, without their co-operation and willingness to help, this stupendous task would have been undertaken in vain. To the faculty of Starkey Seminary, whose enthusiasm was as great as ours, we wish to express our thanks. If this be a means of bringing you in closer touch with our beloved Alma ll-'Iaterg if this be a means of securing more students for Starkey, then we feel assured that our work has brought forth results and a satisfaction that pleases each and every one of us, and when we have left these halls to venture out upon other achievements, whether in public or collegiate life, we shall do so feeling that we have been paid ten fold for our task.

HQ Gbur Svtarkrg THUIHP Starkey Sennnary is a school for young peoplq 21 preparatory school, udnch speciahzes hi Htthig students for coHege, or for responsd e place hi active hfe. It has some claim to being an old school, for it is nearing its century mark, since it was projected hi 1839 and opened hi 1841, uduch givesit a Hgure ofc ghty seven years of service. Besides its notable record in the number of high standing of the men and women who rejoice in recognizing it as their Alma llflater, it seeks to continue as a quiet but vigorous force in promoting the gentle traits and tendencies which are nec- essary factorsin xvorthy character btulding, and xvhich lead to successful endeavor and ultimate comfort and happiness. Visitors who spend a few days with us while school is in session soon discover and frequenthf express their appredatuni of the general air of contentnient and nmumlhnmwtdmtpmvmkinthechwiomm,hidm MnmglmH,h1Hm mdm gatherhigs and everysvhere about the place. dfhe teachers are congenial xvith each other aind udth the piuuds, and the latter are fanidiar with their teachers, and yet not too fanidian fall are busy uith theh'tasks or rechatkni, and yet never too busy to lend a helpful hand, where help is needed or desired.

Our young people have their own tasks and diversions which are so arranged and directed as to proniote and not detract troin their appointed svork. Then our students get benefit from our well ordered division of time. Certain hours are set for study, others for recitation and others still for recreation: Our day is not a hap hazard affair, but instead a systematic period, with its various activities so assigned as to give the best opportunity for advancement. This regularity of schedide enables the zunbidous student to carry the studies that Hts for cohege and enables hiniif he udshesit to rnake good in piano or other niusic pracnce or in sorne coninierchd branch. Again, our school has an advantage in its relatively small classes. Our cultured teachers have few classes that reach twenty-five or twenty, and the recitations gen- erally are for the full hour. The difference for the pupil who is in a class of forty or fifty, and for which the recitation is only of forty or forty-five minutes, is evident. The teacher of such a class has the class attention but can give but slight individual instructhnr The main point that gives our Seminary its distinctive life is its home-like at- inosphere lN7e arelesszuiinstntnion than a fannly.

We have in our president, Dr. Summerbell, a kind and ever ready friend, who through wisdom and council gained from experience, helps us over life's rough places. The following degrees were bestowed upon him, A.B. and A.M., from New York College, Ph. D., from New York University, D. D., from Union Christian College and L.L.D., from Elon College. Mrs. Agnes Schloeder has held sway over lVIodern Language for several years. If any one can inculcate us thoroughly with linguistic knowledge, lVIrs. Schloeder is that person. She studied at Columbia University, in Germany, France and Spain. llir. Charles L. VVarren, Dean of llflen, professor of Latin, and teacher of Ancient and American History, is well loved by the whole student Body. He was graduated from Shippensburg Normal and Dickinson College, where he excelled in both athletics and scholastics. lWrs. Pearl R. Fuller, the Arts teacher is a jolly good fellow with a merry word for all. She has unusual talent and has graduated from Chautauqua School of Arts and Crafts. She also took up advance work at Columbia University. Mr. H. Leonard Allen teaches lldathematics and the Sciences. He is noted for his unfailing good nature. He was graduated last year from Bucknell. Our Commercial teacher, lVIr. Charles N. Sutphen, was graduated two yea1's ago from Rider College, Trenton, N. J. llflr. Sutphen has won his way into our hearts with his sunny good cheer. Besides being a successful teacher, he is the head of the Starkey Orchestra and can play an irresistable violin. lVIr. Guy D. Travis pounds English into.us with determination and turns out successful classes well versed in the whys and wherefores of the King's English. He is a g1'aduate of Alfred University. lVIiss C. Dell W1'ight has done much for the school in the line of concerts and helping the societies. She is an accomplished music teacher and has been graduated from Defiance College and Runell's School. She also took up advanced work at Northwestern University and the American Conservatory of lVIusic at Chicago. Our Coach, lX'Ir. Oliver D. lX'Iyer, has been graduated from the Ithaca School of Physical Education. This year he produced a winning football squad, and a fast basketball team. We have great hopes for the baseball season. lVIrs. Charlotte lX'Iyer, the Coach's wife, teaches the lower school , and freshman algebra.. She has studied at Genesee and llflansfield Normal Schools. llliss Grace YV. Long is the student advisor, and has charge of the students' financial matters and the social activities. She is noted for her willing helpfulness and pleasing personality. Mrs. Emma VVinans, school nurse and acting dean of women, has had years of experience, and is able to help us in all our difiiculties. She is indeed a friend when we are in need of one.

Chuck Corwith, who first came to us from Long Island in '22, is one of the most popular members of the class, and is, in fact, a great favorite among all the students. He shows his genius in the classroom, sooner or later, and in the early fall, during the football season, was a shining light. Next on the list came Harold Hankey from the wilds of Hilton, New York He, too, has shown his able capacity as a student. Hank has high ambitions of someday being an athletic coach, and at the rate he is traveling in our local athletics, we are certain he will make a captivating success of his profession. '24 witnessed the coming of four rollicking, funloving freshmen. When roll call was cried, they answered as none other than Lew Gicker, Paul VVarner, Alice Voorhees, and Edie DeRyder. Through their four years here they have had, and have caused many others to have, riotous good times, due to their fun-loving nature. Lew Gicker, in a serious mood, is a sensible and somewhat studious chap. He is a most likable pe1'son to everyone with whom he comes in contact. He hails from the city of Elmira, New York. It is under his able guidance as editor-in-chief that the Echo has risen to greater heights this year. Paul VVarner came quite a distance to be educated in the ways of life here at Starkey. The mystery of his mischief is solved when we tell you that he comes from the land of the nuts , namely, Brazil. Paul is an efficient artist in the art room itself, the classroom, and lastly, love. Alice Voorhees, who is the object of Paul's amorous section of art, comes from the nearby town of Starkey, New York. She is a girl luckily gifted with a great talent for music. Her genius is shown also on the basketball floor, for she is a most clever forward. Last of this group of '24 cames Edie De Ryder. She is the kind of girl who sits back with a smile on her face while the rest of us grind away, but who, when Regents come around, walks audaciously off with high l10I10l'S, leaving the rest to be satisfied with what remains. The class continued with tranquility until '26. At that time, lliarietta llflould burst in upon itg a girl ever ready with an idea, from Nlontgomery, New York. Then this year we received two young ladies, adroit in their own particular ways. They were Ginny Griffing from Red Hook, New York, and Betty Crissey from Trumansburg, New York. Ginny, altho she loves a good time, must be credited with her share of brains, for she is graduating f1'om her high school career after only three years! Betty is not quite as lively as Ginny, altho she shows enough of the old pep when it comes to basketball and the classroom. Early in lVIarch the class organized. The officers elected were Pres. Charles F. Corwith, Vice-Pres. Lewis Gicker, Sec. Edith De Ryder, and Treasurer, Paul VVarner. The class is being advised under the able guidnace of Charles L. Warren, dean of men.

For six years Chuck has been making a place for himself in Starkey hearts. To many of us it seems that without lVIouse , one of the most popular boys, Starkey will not seem the same. As a proof of the high regard and esteem in which his class- mates held him, he was chosen president of the senior class. Chuck not only worked hard in his studies, as his teachers will vouch, but also in all athletics, prin- cipally baseball and football. He played end on the football team for three years and did a great deal to make the team a success last fall. Noted for his magnetic personality and keen sense of humor, we bid this popular young man a sad farewell. llday your wholelife, Chuck , be as suc- cessful as that part of it spent at Starkey. Betty Cris.fey Trumansburg High School, '25, '26, '27, Basketball, '28, Secretary of Y. W. C. A., '28, Emersonian Literary Society. Elizabeth Crissey came to Starkey from Trumansburg High School in the fall of '27, During her one year here, she has won the hearts of her classmates and the good will of her teachers. She brought with her an admirable track record which she has successfully lived up to by establishing a fine reputation in basketball. The team will feel a great loss when Betty leaves Starkey this year. Betty is an Emersonian of whom the Society is proud. She is vice-president of the Christian Endeavor, Secretary of the Y. W. C. A., and last but not least, she is ofhcial bell-ringer. Crissey is a real sport. She always has a smile and a pleasant word for every- one. We surely shall miss this smiling senior when she leaves us. Eighteen Lewis W. Gicman 315 Orchard St., Elmira, New York Cid Lew Track, '25g Humor Editor Echo , '27: Editor-in-Chief Echo , '28g Vice President Senior Class, '28, Football mgr. '27, Emerson- ian Literary Society. ' Four years ago Gick made his appear- ance at Starkey. From the start he made a hit with both the girls and boys. Gicker deserves a lot of credit, for he had to begin his school days practically all over again. After receiving an honorable discharge from the army he wanted to fin- ish his neglected studies so that he might be able to attend the Buffalo lwedical College. Altho Click had athletic ability, he was not able to indulge in any of the major sports. This was due to certain affiliations with the Summerbell house. We all will miss Lewis in the Literary Society, for he has been a hard worker in our Chapel meetings. EDITH GRAHABI DE RYDER 195 Berkley Place, Brooklyn, New York Edie Kelly Athletic Association, '27g Secre- Class, '28g Literary Editor Echo, '28, Editor Emersonian Literary Society, 'ZSQ President Y. W. C. A., '28g Girls Glee Club, P25, '26, '27, 'ZSQ Emersonian Literary Society. Edie hails from the big town and believe me she knows her onions! Four years she has sojourned among us and 'twill be a sad day when these halls of learning cease to hear her hurrying foot- steps just a moment late running down the way. To the lot of a chosen few falls the happy faculty of being clever. Upon a still smaller group have the Fates bestowed beauty. To find these two qual- ities mingled in one person is unusual. Yet these merits are personified in our de- lightfully charming Kelly . She is a girl we all love, and can she dance? Nor did more learning ever crowded lie in such a short mortality. Secretary tary Senior PWR Ninetzfmz GEORGE HAROLD HANKEY Hilton, New York nlfrznkf' Football, '24, '26, '27, Baseball, '25, '26, '27, '28, Captain of Baseball, '28, Basketball, '26, '27, '28, Secretary Y. M. C. A. '27, Treasurer of Y. M. C. A. '28, Captain Emer- sonian Track Team, '27. Hankey's greatest fame has been won on the gridiron, the basketball court, and the baseball diamond. Hankey has starred in the three major sports for all the four years of his high school career. They have even somewhat eclipsed the honor 'that is due -to him for his scholastic attainments, but these are not to be forgotten. Hankey is graduating this June with a record in his studies that is far above the ordinary. Such a begin- ning would seem to assure great success, and we wish you that, Hankey. A sound mind in ia sound body -these are yours, in them you have the finest foundation for your life. Twenty W' if VIRGINIA BALLENTYNE GRIFFING Red Hook, New York ncyiflllyu ,rGi1lU Red Hook High School, '26, '27, Humor Editor Echo , '28, Girls' Glee Club, '28, Treasurer Y. VV. C. A. '28, Emersonian Lit- erary Society. Last fall Ginny came into our midst. Cordial, munificiently contributing gaiety to any conversation into which she entered, and a magnetic personality, were the characteristics by which she was unani- mously voted the most popular girl on the campus. Gin has an exceptionally receptive mind for knowledge. The fact that she is completing her high school course in three years, permits us to say that. She pos- sesses lofty ideals which direct her course to a higher branch of study at VVellesley Colleg next fall. You have taken your first step toward your life ambition-you have successfully overcome a few of the many obstacles which strew your pathway to achievement. 9 1 'l X ALICE LORAINE Vooar-miss Starkey, New York Allie Sir Activities Editor, Echo , '28, Basketball, '25, '26, Captain of Basketball, '27, '28, Girls' Glee Club, '28, Emersonian Literary Society. Alice came to us as a Freshman. For four years she has toiled and at last con- quered. Allie belongs to that class of people who are always obliging and pleas- ant. She has not only proven herself to be a diligent student, but also a great asset as a booster in all athletics and outside ac- tivities. Her accomplishments as a pianist have been a great help in concert Work as well as in our orchestra. Alice, we hate to say goodbye, but we know that you will be back to see us and our Alma lVIater in the years to come. May the world be good to you and ap- preciate your kind-heartedness as we have. MARIETTA F.

After one year in the grades here, she re- returned to lylontgomery where she went to high school for two years. Upon her return to us, she lost no time in establish- ing a great reputation for originality and initiative. In classes she ranks high, and is graduat- ing with honors. In her literary society, she has spent a great deal of effort in better- ing the programs, both in ofiicial capacities and by the parts shc has taken in thc meetings. No one questions lVIarietta's brilliance-her place is secure. She also has a place in our hearts. Throughout her school life here, she has proved herself generous and companionable. hflarietta is a good sport through anti through, and now that she is through, with her life at Starkey, we all wish her the success and happiness of which she is de- serving. Tzventy-one PAUL BOOKMAN NVARNER 176 College Street, Oberlin, Ohio 'Tfozlndn W111'ner ' Football, '25, '27, '28, Basketball, '26, '27, '28, Cross Country, '25, President Y. M. C. A. '27, Basketball Captain, '27, '28, Art Editor Echo , '28, Treasurer Senior Class, '28, Emersonian Literary Society. Four years ago VVarner wandered into this institution to acquire what know- ledge could be given him. Right away he made a place for himself in the hearts of his fellow classmates. Hound , as he is called, made further impressions on his friends when he showed his remark- able ability in athletics. Aside from be- ing liked by boys, he is admired by the op- posite sex. Through four years of so- called labor with Regents, he has fin- ally succeeded in reaching his expectations. Starkey will lose a fine, noble and gener- ous fellow, for Paul enters Oberlin Col- lege next fall. May success and happiness be yours in the future, Warne1'. if-XXX H1151 Grahuate There is but one post graduate at Starkey this year. He is Glenn Boyce, the sole survivor of the class of 1927. lVIr. Boyce commenced his high school career in the town of Ovid, New York, but as his Alma llflater he chose Starkey, and so it was that he came to us in the fall of '26, Boyce held down the honored position of captain of a winning foot ball team, this fall, exceedingly well, along with other responsible positions of various types. Glenn is thinking of entering lkiiddlebury College this fall. Twenty-two .S N. 5 . CHARLES NELSON SUTPHEN Flemington, New Jersey Realizing the value of this young man as the head of the Commercial Depart- ment, the Board of Trustees persuaded Professor Sutphen to return to Starkey for another school year. When the question arose concerning the editing of a second volume of The Echo , he immediately became an ardent supporter of our cause. For a second time, the an- nual has materialized under the inspired efforts of Mr. Sutphen. The Echo Board has thrown every ounce of its energy into this work. At times when we lost confidence in our own ability to put this thing across, Mr. Sutphen has always been present with a smile, both to restore our confidence, and to offer his own ability. The Echo Board, which has trodden the rough and steep footpath to success, takes this opportunity to thank its able guide, and to express appreciation for his whole- hearted support and earnest labor. CHARLES L. WARREN Shippensburg, Pa. For three years this young man has un- swervingly devoted himself to inculeating Latin' prose into our impregnable craniums. Undismayed by our reluctant receptibility, he has at last reached the point where the study of Latin and History has become a pleasure instead of a torture. Aside from his conscientiousness in the classroom, Mr. Wfarren has shown great in- terest in our physical welfare. Through his earnest efforts to help us, both on the athletic field, and in the classroom, he has earned the highest respect of the student body. The Senior Class of 1928 showed great wisdom in its choice of this man for faculty advisor. Y1'LUE'7Z1'1l -three 4 .

In Witness Whereof, we have set our hands and affixed our seals, at Starkey Seminary, this twenty-seventh day of June, in the Year of Our Lord, one thousand, nine hundred and twenty-eight.

Fuller Cameron Itlorrison W 1, tg- W Tzventy-ffve .e lgrnphrrg The poor reporter certainly has a tough time of it, running around town try- ing to obtain some vestige of news and then having to write it up so as to engage people's interest. It is a lucky day when he does not find it necessary to use all his art to do this, whenevery interview is interesting in itself. Judging by this standard, this had been my first really lucky day in 1938, and here it is October. The luck began early when I took up my pencil at that famous trial which for the last month had been absorbing all New York's interest. A glance around me disclosed no anxious faces, merely hopeful ones and resigned ones. There never had been much doubt as to the outcome of any case in which lVIarietta F. Mould, Ll.D., consented to 'take sides.' It was a real sensation, after the expected verdict had been given, to feel the friendly hand-clasp of this old school-mate, recently become so famous and influential. I descended the court house steps and hopped a buss up-town to the new memorial hospital where Lewis W. Gicker, that revoluntionary among modern surgeons, had just performed his most successful operation. Fame had not changed him, but suc- cess had developed in him a distinguished professional manner. When finally we left the field of his labors, it was together. He had explained a luncheon engagement with a mutual friend, and with a new-found generosity had asked me to go along. It was a short walk to one of the older hotels with a famous grill. We waited on the balcony--a few moments only, until a young woman of unique charm ap- proached, followed by several persistent young cubs. Clearly, it was inevitable that this much-discussed young novelist should create quite a stir wherever she went. Just one publication had been made under the name of Virginia Ballentyne Grifhng, and that is just what you would have expected-a clever, original novel, showing much thought with little effort. If Ginny never worked very hard, it was because she didn't ever have to. You're going to the game, too, of course. Of course! Then we'd better step on it. We're going to meet Chuck Corwith and go up with him. Oh, I forgot, he has to come all the way from Brooklyn. In spite of the distance, it was not long before he showed up, witty and wise as ever, looking a trifle bored, perhaps, but every inch a man who put everything into life and got a lot out. Chuck had become a great leader in the business world, as everyone always knew he would, with that head and that disposition. Then Coach Harold Hankey put in his appearance. Time had subdued neither his fiery red hair. l-lankey always did know his athletics, but there must have been more to it than that, judging from that team he turned out. No wonder all the big colleges in the country are trying to obtain his services! pi! Twen fy-six fr Q i , 'Nii X'-XZ 4 f O mm, QM ,Tl '-'11-I - - 7 Z Betty Crissey arrived on the scene about this time. She never misses a game, they told nie. The coach likes to have someone to discuss the game intelligently with him. Betty, too, has made a place for herself as athletic instructor in an Eastern woman's college. We remember Betty's pluck and grit as dating back to the days when, during vacations, she used to ride her father's mule. This evening, I went to a recital at Carnegie. Even before the noted young pianist struck her first chord, we all knew that the debut of Alice Lorraine Voorhees would be the greatest in many seasons. The personality and appearance, as well as the immense success of a couple of popular pieces, would assure that. VVhen I first caught a glimpse of her, that tall dark haired lady in the flame colored dress, I was almost afraid to send the message I had for her. But I did, and after that great performance, she smiled over at me. Yet, that girl will go far! It must be admitted, too, that advertising helps a lot. With Paul VVarner, famous commercial artist, to manage her publicity, she ought to climb to the very top. Paul is still to be found near Allie-the handsome pair left together. I noticed them just before I returned home. lily lucky day is over. VVith many like it, it won't be long now before you may become a star reported, Edith G. De Ryder, and win some fame for yourself instead of just writing about other people's.

Illould gifff'-3 It Ulhirh Hear Gllaaa Over the rocky roads of first and second year high we have valiantly struggled and now at last we have won the distinction of dignified juniors. VVe are justly proud of our achievements, and look forward toward accomplishing greater things. Wheii our turn comes to don our pinching piltellt leathers and limp with painful happi- ness up on the platform of the temple to give our hard learned orations to an audi- ence which can little appreciate the agonizing work spent to produce them, fthe orations-not the audiencej we shall justly merit the glorified honor of being the solemn seniors of 1929. All truly marvelous phenomena owe their origin to small beginnings. Thus our class first started forth with Thelma Lowe, soul comforter and Mellin's prize baby, Robert Beatty, who is noted for his incredible feats as a contortionist, Marjorie Morris, sweet nymph whose laughter charms all, Harold Corwith, noted heart breaker and court jester, and last but not least, Lewis Radley, fickle shiek. The second year, the cradle roll was enlarged to include Jean Honsberger, true Helen of Troy, Burton Davis, woman hater with exceptions, and Rodman Robinson, diamond in the rough. . In this, the third year, the gods sent a gift to Jean in the form of Harry Bonner, Frederick Crissey also joined the ranks of the mighty. , Even at this stage in our career, we command respect from our elders and betters, the seniors. We proudly claim six stalwart men on the footall squad and four on the 'basketball court. Our prowess in baseball remains to be shown. We modestly admit that half the cntrancing strains produced by Sutphen's Syncopatorsn are brought forth by the able representatives of our versatile crew. Yes, we as a class feel the satisfaction that comes from work well done. What teacher can say that we have not always been the darlings of our classes? Who can hope to equal the intelligent and eager replies made by' Buddy and llflarjorie in Latin class? We all know that Jean is irresistable to Prof. Travis in English- Sh-h-h-hl It is rumored that Amy runs close second. Who can deny that the apple of Prof. Allen's eye is Beatty in Physics, while Bonner runs off with the prizes in geometry: Yez! Hez! We recognize our slumgullian. We do not wish to take up too much of your time, dear reader, but we wish to impress upon you the fact that from this junior class, celebrities will some day immerge.

The honor came to us as a gift from the gods and we're surprised ourselves. But we hope that fate will continue to smile on us. The smallest member of our group is Ida Diehl. Wliat this spritely young lady lacks in size, she makes up in spirit. She was a priceless asset to the basketball team. Yes Ida has many charms as her long string of hearts will testify. Blaine Keesey is OUI' boom-boom man. He practices for the wild western movies that some day he will undoubtedly star in. Alberta llfliller is our conversationalist. She indulges in tried and true phrases such as Not much! And how! and I don't mean maybe . Betty Thompson is our belle of the ball . She dances like a dream and sings like another. George Brewer is the living example of that saying And still the wonder grew that one 'small head could carry all he knew . Edward lVIcCann is another worthy person. Such a quiet chap must have great thoughts that will bring fame to the future. H I Then comes the gem of the class, Harrison Tubbs Voorhees. He plays in the orchestra and all know and love him.

Ma1'jo1'ie Tuttle upholds our reputation for brilliance besides having that peach and cream loveliness poets rave about. Joyce Voorhees is the vamp of this class of '31, and those eyes of hers were made for star-lit nights. Gretchen Brate is our bulletin board. She always has a bit of spicy news. Other celebrities of the day are: Elsie Bauer whose giggle is known to all. Robert lVIoore, the lad with the nifty bob, Tony the flower boy, Clara, the Hirt, Harry Humphries, the Ancient History fiend, and the two others are, Bobs and Lois, the chatty maidens. , Such a noble band as this cannot help but make a mark in the world-mayhap a dent.

The officers consist of a president, elected at the last meeting of each term, who presides over the meetings, the vice president, elected for the same length of time, who acts as chairman in the absence of the president, and the editor, who writes society news for a column in the Starkey Seminary lVIonthly. The editor retains his office for a year. The president appoints a cabinet consisting of a literary director, a music director, a treasurer, and a secretary. Every other week, the Society holds a meeting in the chapel. Here, on the platform, members of our number entertain their Adelphian brothers with well selected readings, recitations, carefully prepared orations, articles, and written matter. liach member not only provides pleasing entertainment for his brother, but trains himself in the art of speaking intelligently, coherently, forcefully, and interestingly, to an audience, thereby gaining poise and self assu1'ance. lVIusical selections written by the finer composers are rendered, making the programme more pleasurable and promoting the proficiency of the players. The Friday after a chapel assemblage, a small room meeting is held in one of the class rooms. These meetings generally consist of extemporaneous speeches which are exceedingly benehcial in sharpening the wits and preparing the mind for quick, clear and decisive thinking, and perfecting the ability of the speaker to marshall his arguments at a moment's notice and give a lucid, concise and compact discourse. Sometimes these meetings consist of mock trial, parliamentary law, cipher or spelling matches. This year, we voted to have a faculty critic, and since then our meetings have improved, guided by the helpful criticisms of our faculty friend. The Emersonian Literary Society was formed a few years earlier than this Association. Between the two groups a friendly rivalry exists, which stimulates each association to higher efforts. Several times a year, joint meetings are held, present- ing the best talent of each society. Last year in a debating contest, we took the laurels. Athletics are observed to some extent. lntersociety basketball games are held and each June there is a track meet in which each association tries to outrival the other in prowess. Last year the Adelphians held the honors in relay racing. This year's meet is yet to be conquered, and we hope to have the same success. It is an unwritten law that any Adelphian, in after life, may expect brotherly help from his fellow members. The Association corresponds with the college fraternity. Thirty-four I E. se -' ff! X 9 mersunian literary Sucietpr Emersonians, Adelphians and Friends: The Emersonian is one of the two literary societies of Starkey Seminary whose common purpose is The improvement of its members in literature, oratory and parliamentary usage. This object is followed up in the Friday night meetings held, alternately with the Adelphians, in the chapel and in Room Six. The chapel meetings consist of both musical and literary numbers. A great deal of variety in the musical part of the program has been possible this year. The society talent, from which for the past two years, hir. Sutphen has almost entirely chosen his orchestra, is the best in many years. Miss W1'igl1t has cooperated with us in working up special numbers and in several times taking part herself. The literary features of these meetings consist in original work, in readings and in recitations, all of which are first prepared by the artists for the evening, and later submitted for criticism to the department of English. The meetings in Room Six are conducted in a less formal manner. The plans for these meetings are in the hands of the literary director, and vary directly with the originality and initiative of that officer. During this year, these meetings have held the general interest to an extent that speaks well for the efforts of the literary directors. Several of the stocks-in-trade of the societies are spelling and cipher matches, extemporaneous speeches, quotations, debates and mock trials. Occasional meetings are given over to practical courses in parliamentary law, in which we drill the procedure which, when put into practice, makes perfect our meetings. The oflicers of the society are elected at the beginning of each term. They are president, vice president, treasurer, critic and marshall. The president, subject to the approval of the society, chooses his cabinet, secretary, literary director and music director. An editor is elected for the full year. A member of the faculty acts as critic at each meeting. VVe are closing the year with a large membership and a full treasury. Our meet- ings have proved of interest and benefit to both members and visitors. Therefore we consider this year a very successful one, and one in which the society has been greatly improved. I thank you. Th irt y-.lf 've 5. Q A News ff! g 0 O O Q0 O The Y. XV. C. A. has occupied an important place in the school life of the girls for a number of years. It is an organization which has proved helpful and en- joyable in many ways. lweetings are held on Thursday nights, under the guidance of llfliss Long. Much of the credit for the things we have accomplished during the year is due to her interest in the Y. W. C. A. By keeping in touch with other Girl Reserve movements, she has maintained our meetings on a higher plane than we could have done alone. Aside from the few acts of charity which the Y. W. C. A. has carried out, the project for world friendship was probably the most interesting thing in which we have taken part. Last year the girls dressed dolls to be sent to Japan for this purpose. However, it was not until this fall that we received the letters and the return pre- sent, a folio of views and hand etchings. The second project, undertaken this winter, was the preparation of a school-bag for a Mexican child. Plans for a dance during the spring, are in progress. llffluch of the interest shown in the serious side of the Y. XV. C. A. may be traced to the fact that it has also a lighter and more social side. At any rate, the influence which it exerts on the girls is widely felt, and it has proved itself an exceedingly popular institution. -....4..T 19.1111 .. The Y. M. C. A. started off the year with great expectations fof having good times and interesting meetings. It seems that these expectations are to be fulfilled, for the meetings that we have had so far have proved very interesting. Professor Wa1'ren, whose interest has been the chief factor in building up the Y. M. C. A., has done a great deal toward making the meetings interesting. He has brought up discussions and encouraged debating. Through these debates a great deal of interest and enjoyment has been derived from the meetings. One of the greatest things which Professor VVarren has done is to procure speakers for the meetings. The addresses have been delivered by men in a position to advise the boys about their aims in life. Plans have been made by the Y. M. C. A. for a dance, a play, and camping trips. There is also to be a basketball team chosen from the fellows, which we think will turn out to be a good one. The play is to be given for the purpose of raising money for our dance. If all of these plans turn out well, we shall be able to call this year a success as far as the Y. M. C. A. is concerned. Thirty-six .4 Q r:::..-::1 - i' Z rv:-1 9 . , X X x ,W , , H 1 KJ, what wakes a well aah arson Today, as we look around us at the medley of reading matter, we see modern books, classic books, good books, bad books, books and pamphlets in shabby nondescript bindings covered with the dust of ages, books in blatant covers that scream the latest sensations, books of philosophy and science, books anti this and pro that, thousands of books of all types. kVe see magazines for home, magazines against home, magazines in quiet, conventional coverings speaking of pure literature, facts and life-countless mag- azines of every description. Then we see papers-papers that tell us the true facts of the nations and inform us of current events, papers that point and magnify with distorted colorings the mistakes, dishonesty, abnormalities and deformities of mankind-millions and millions of papers. With all this before our eyes, the question is born and grows, VVhat should we read? Wliat makes a well read person ? An educated man or woman should read various types of literature, such as modern books, older classics, magazines and newspapers, to acquire a wide understand- ing of all phases of life. Yet he should avoid the extreme, the distorted, the deformed and the morbid writings that cannot, in any way, add to his perceptions of humanity. Wliat is best: to be known as one who reads widely, as one who reads everything, as one who reads only the best, or as one who reads thoroughly and with discrimina- tion? To be known as one who reads widely, is not, as it stands alone, all that may be wished for. Though one reads the best books that the golden ages of literature can offer up, if one does not understand the beauty of them, if no lasting impression of these masterpieces affects one, then his reading has profited him nothing. , The one who reads everything is not necessarily a well read person. Too much coarse dross dulls the appreciation of the fine gold of high lite1'ature. Character, in a part, is formed by literary productions. Conversation reflects character, and some things read are better not mirrored in conversation. The person who reads only the best does l1Ot get a liberal and wide understanding of humanity. He knows only the pure idealistic half of life, while the ruder side is a mystery. Such a person cannot be called well read , for the well read are versed in all phases of life and living. Then is he who reads thoroughly and with discrimination to be considered well read ? Yes. He gains the essence of beauty, the force of the truth and the significance of the classics through his thorough search for them. He is able to pick the en- lightening from the mystifying, the gold from the dross, the good from the vulgar. He gains true knowledge from the scientific. He is able to separate the wheat from the chaff in philosophy. He gains the power to discourse with mankind intelligently, interestingly and sensibly. He has sympathy gained from much reading. He is a well read man. -Illnriettzz F. Ilfoulzl. Thirty-sefverz fffyxx u S Clbrrhrztra Prof. Sutphen, Gicker, Boyce Bonner, vis Z1 D Corwith, Morris oorhees, J. Voorhees, oorhees, A. V H.

It is quite hard for a lot of good dancers, such as are seen only at Starkey, to move around the floor to the tune of a victrola. Wltl1OLlt any delay the orchestra was organized and started its regular weekly prac- tices. We didn't have much trouble to find a good place to practice with our new gym and fine stage, that is, it was easy enough during the football season, but when basketball started we had rather a hard time to gain much in our playing when we had to buck the shouts of the squad. We took up a collection among the students to raise money for new music. YVe bought a lot of the newest orchestrations and it wasn't long before we had mastered them. Wheii we get together we make a lot of good noise and it sounds something more or less like Lopez? Besides playing for our own dances here at school, we had the privelege of play- ing for a play given by the members of the church. Some of the members of the play being given at Starkey heard our music and enjoyed it so much that they decided to have us come up and play for them the two nights that they gave their play, Green Stockings. Evidently they liked our work, because we understand that they con- template taking the play to Lodi and we are to go with them. lVIore power to the orchestra. , By commencement we hope to be able to surprise most of the alumni. They heard some wierd notes last year, but we-intend to give them some real good jazz and classical work in june. ORCH ESTRA NI EM B ERS Piano Violin lVIarjory lVIorris Joyce Voorhees Alice L.

Ulbe Ulhanksggihing iBIap aah Musicals When Thanksgiving rolled around, several members of the English department gave a play, preceeded by a sho1't musicale. Quits , a one act comedy by A. E. Brown, is the story of two Harvard men who visit a girls' seminary. Here they have many interesting experiences and get into all sorts of difficulties with the dean, before each boy gets a promise of marriage from the girl with whom he had been corresponding under a fictitious name. The characters were ably chosen, and the play was very well directed by lN'Ir. Travis. Jean Honsberger, Betty Thompson, Marietta lVIould, Harry Bonner, and Burton Davis made up the cast. Preceeding the play, a musicale was given by Miss VVright and some of her pupils. The program consisted of Vocal Solos, Miss Wright, Marjorie Morris and Lewis Gickerg Piano Solo, Alice Voorhees, Male Quartette, Coach Myer, Paul W8l'llCI', lVIr. Sutphen and Lewis Gickerg and, perhaps best of all, a Female Quintette, by the Misses Morris, Honsberger, DeRyder, Thompson and Voorhees. Both the play and the musicale were a success, and the evening was joyfully spent by everyone. Several parents of the students stayed over for the event, and we feel assured that they did not regret their stay. Hit. Qlurinitiys jfuuthall Banquet On Wedxiesday evening, December the seventeenth, the football squad and gentle- men of the faculty attended a banquet which was given at the Jefferson House, Watkixis Glen. This dinner was given to the football men for winning their Thanks- giving game. At a pep meeting held on the eve of Thanksgiving, l'vIr. Corwith gave a short talk on pep and good sportsmanship which go to help make a football team. ll'Ir. Corwith, had come from Long Island especially to see the Thanksgiving game, be- cause he was told beforehand that there were all expectations of a good game on Thanksgiving. With this in mind he wanted to put additional pep and spirit in the boys so he said, If you win that game to-morrow, you shall have the best dinner that is possible to be had. At the close of this last sentence the student body applauded, yelled and whistled until it seemed as if the roof would Hy off. At the banquet, Doctor Summerbell was toastmaster. He gave the football men due credit for the record of their football season, putting Stl'CSS upon sportsman- ship and teamfwork. He also congratulated Coach Nleyer and Captain Glenn Boyce, upon their cooperation during the season. ' lVIr. Corwith was present at the banquet, having made the trip especially for the occasion. Wheii his turn came to speak, he said, that he thought according to the score which Starkey ran up against their opponents on Thanksgiving, that the fellows on the team had rubbed it in a little. He also again praised the fellows on their fine work in spite of the smallness of the squad.

The first wonder to greet the marvelling eyes of the guests was a huge but dainty heart for a door thru which they entered to the joys beyond.

Between glorious dances to the seducive tunes of the Starkey orchestra, the merry guests re- freshed themselves with delicious punch of Carmen hue, in honor of St. Valentine.

The jliilasquerahz The week of November nineteenth was filled with mysterious actions on the part of the students. Our days were occupied in making costumes of various types for The lVIasquerade which was to be held on the Saturday evening of that week. It was not long before the big night arrived. Everyone was curious for the event, and when the gymnasium was lighted up, a beautiful spectacle was seen. It was prettily decorated for the occasion with many pleasant corners and nooks where the guests could sit. Everyone wore the most attractive costumes and among them could be found very clever ones. There were foreign countries represented and other more humor- ous sketches who played the part of clowns. After two hours of dancing, everyone was willing to accept refreshments which were served most delicately. After due justice had been given them, the masqueraders enjoyed themselves dancing for the remainder of the evening. The music was furnished by the Starkey Seminary Ensemble who had prepared special selections for the occasion. Everyone appreciated the hard work shown on the part of the musicians, and we sincerely hope for continued prosperity of the Ensemble .

Forty-.vefvcn Alix ig 2 5 Q new flff 9 whither Guest illihuu In the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and six, there was born, on Lindell Boulevard, in New Orleans, a boy to the family of Cartier. The Cartiers' were honest God fearing people in comfortable circumstances. Bly story hinges about this boy. He inherited French passion and impulsiveness from his father while his mother being Irish gave him the ready wit and sunny smile of the Irish people. We shall skip over a period of fourteen years, during which time, the family had migrated from New Orleans to a little hamlet of Central New York called Hamilton. Jacquis Cartier, for that was his name, enjoyed to the utmost the game of living. He lived for all he was worth every waking moment. I-Ie made many friends but they were, for the most part, among the boys and girls who belonged to a crowd much older than he. Among these friends he was universaly known as Jock. In the spring of his fifteenth birthday he fell violently in love. Kathleen llflurphy, a sweet faced coquetish little Irish girl, was the object of his affections. She was about six years his senior but this fact bothered .lock but little because he was used to associating with folks much older. Indeed, Jock had! scarcely experienced the marble and slingshot stage he passed it so quickly. After a short time, however he suspected her of not playing exactly square with him ac- cording to his idea of the game. This hurt his French pride and arouszd his Irish ire until finally the climax was reached when the following telephone conversation took place. I-Iello Kay, guess who this isf' I'm sure I don't know, unless its' Tommy, came the answer, the last clause was spoken excitedly. No, this is -lock. There is to be a basketball game at Hoosic tonight. NVill you go with me P 'Tm sorry Jock, but I have been sick for three days. lwaybe some other time. Alright goodbye, this rather short and bitter. Upon leaving the drug store from where he had phoned, he ran into Bus Jones and Tony Scherer. These fellows were about eight years ,Iock's senior but they had taken him around to the various little parties, dances and athletic contests held in the sur- rounding towns because -lock was a bright engaging youngster and always had money. Although prohibition had come into effect more than a year before, drinking was fast becoming the vogue among the younger set of Hamilton, to which both Bus and Tony belonged. Jock's parents were ardent prohibitionists and lost no opportunity in advertising the fact. They were wonderful home loving people with a boy to protect and they meant to leave no stone unturned to make the country safe for their boy as well as thousands of other sons. Forty-eight IJ! - Viv 2 J,- l' I! I 4- LE: 5 .ii i-in 1-'H X w h Q . fxlsg ,iff-ff f 'J There were members of the self styled smart set who had often tried to entice Jock into some of the evils that his parents were continually fighting because they conlsidered it would be a huge joke if they could send straight laced Cartiers' boy home intoxicated. . Hello Bus, said Jock, are you fellows going to the game at Hoosic tonight ? I guess we areg answered Bus, that is if Tony can get that tub of his running. Do you want to go with us ? I would like to but I will have to ask Father, eagerly assented Jock. All right, you go ask your old lldan but don't say anything about going with us because I have an idea the old cuss wouldn't exactly sanction it, said Tony. Jock Hushed and saw red at the disrespectful way Tony had talked of his father, but not wishing to incur the disfavor of the older boys he kept his peace. At the appointed time, jock met Bus and Tony downtown after having told his father that the professor of the high school had asked him to go to the game. This was one of the first lies he had ever told but Jock was bitter at heart this night and was feeling very reckless. Upon their arrival at Hoosie, Tony suggested that they should go over to the speak-easy that he knew of and have a drink before going to the game. At first Jock demurred but, unable to withstand the kidding of his elders any longer and wanting to do something reckless anyway, he Hnally consented. Upon entering the speakeasy, Tony ordered two ryes straight and one rye' highball. Jock was given the highball. With trembling hands and quaking knees, but with an assumed air of bravado, Jock took a long breath and-gulped his first drink. Horrors! How it burned, all the way down. He snatched a glass of water that was sitting by Bus's drink and poured it down his seered throat. This relieved the burning sensation somewhat. How do you like it, Kid ? inquired Tony. Boy, that's great, promptly lied Jock. Let's get over to the game before it starts. Just one more before we go, invited Busy so another order duplicating the first was set upon the table. This didn't burn quite so much and after the third one, jock began to feel giddy and warm inside. XVhen they made their way down-street to the game, Jock's feet felt as light as air. He laughed foolishly when they seemed to insist on wandering off into space and it required an infinite degree of carefullness to keep them on the ground. Bus looked first at Jock, then at Tony, and slowly closed his right eye. When they arrived at the game, Tony purchased all the tickets and they en- tered to find good seats on the second tier. By this time Jock was feeling exceedingly happy and talkative. Look-a-that baby shoot fouls. Jes' seems like he can't miss. Say, Bus, isn't that Tommy Arden over there with Kay lNfIurphy? I'm a son-of-a-gun she said she was sick. I didn't bu-lieve her tho. She's an old bat any- way. Wat-d'I-ca1'e.,' ' Look-a-that funny old man 'ith two ballsh. Howsh he gonna play 'ith two Forty-nine sa NNN Til Q ' '7 ballsh, he-heh-he. Pipe down, kid, or you will have every who was growing a bit uneasy about the boy. The liquor had worn off by the end of sober condition, but-he had experienced the first step which, in itself was practically harmless, but it was to weaken his will and deaden his conscience against the teach- ings and earnest pleas of a loving father and mother. The next two years of Jock's life was interspersed by no particularly astounding things, but they had gradually wrought a change in him. Things had happened that had left their mark, never to be e1'ased. If the moon could have talked during those two years, it would have had many things to disclose, sordid affairs where synthetic gin, spiritious liquors and the like Howed freely. It could have told of street brawls, indecent dances, that caught all the human Hotsam and jetsam who knew no source of entertainment other than that of satisfying primeval desires through the medium of latent self expression. It could have told of a boy caught in the whirl of this sordid mess, kidding himself into believing that this was the channel through which happiness was found. It could have told of wretched parents, lying sleepless night after night, hoping and praying, pouring their hearts out to the almighty ruler in earnest appeals to save their sony' They knew that to rule with an iron hand meant a break between Jock and them, then-utter ruin for the boy. Their only chance was to hope and pray that the honest and true tendencies he had inherited would at last make their appearance. All of these things and more the moon could have told during those two years. Jock was now seventeen and according to his views quite a man of the world. About this time he met a girl from Nantucket, a little town about thirty miles from Hamilton. Delores Channing was a very beautiful girl. Jock interested her as, indeed, he did most people. He became so infatuated that he stopped running around with the old crowd and gave up many of his worst vices. hir. and lVIrs. Cartier felt that their prayers had been answered, therefore, when jock insisted on becoming engaged, even though he was extremely young, they consented. This was the beginning of a one looking at us. This from Tony the game so Jock arrived home in a wonderful period in ,Iock's life. Upon reaching the home of Delores on the night that he had arranged to seal his promise with a ring, the whole universe seemed charged with electrical expectancy. Delores nature could tantalise the about them, petrified, for Hello, Father met him at the door. She was divine. A face as nearly perfect as have created, crowned by a wealth of coal black hair, that seemed to eyes until they danced and flashed, by curling most alluringly close cool provocative lips that seemed to beckon to Jock as he stood there, an instant before entering. Jock, I am so glad you are on timef' a musical voice was heard to say. and mother are out to a bridge party, leaving me here all alone. The usual bright, wise-cracking Jock entered dumbly, unable to speak. Finally he roused himself and said foolishly: You are wonderful tonight, Delores, and I haven't been drinking either. I Fifty Ailx ft r::::::a V , .TQTTT ' Taz-16 q -1 , , haven't touched a drop in over a month. She lead him to the living room where a huge fireplace with a spacious daven- port standing before it invited them to tarry. After exchanging a few nonsensical pleasantries, Jock gulped and launched into the hardest and most beautiful thing he had ever attempted. Delores, I love you, love you with my very heart and soul. All that I have or ever expect to have, is but a particle of what I would give you. As it is, I am offering you 1ny love, the first pure, true love that I have ever experienced. Yopu know that I am something of a derelict, but thank God I am clean, and I want you. I want to break away from this sordid mess called life, as I have seen it. We wilfl go away by ourselves and forget, forget everything, just you and I. I can start anew, and with you at my side, nothing else matters. Kiss me, Delores, if you consent to be mine. Everything ceased to function as their lips met in the kiss that lifted Jocks very soul toward heaven, but was to be the means of driving' his soul into the depths of a living hell from which he could never ascend. Jock lived among the clouds for the next few months. His parents were happy in the thought that, at last, he had found himselfg till one night Delores sent for him to come to her. It was all-important and he must not fail. Seven o'clock in the evening found Jock awaiting an answer to his knock at her door. When she came, he sensed that something was wrong, but he did not attach much importance to it. Come in, jock, just this and only this was her word of greeting. They again found themselves seated on the davenport. jock, I have something to tell you. The night I accepted your 1'ing I must have been crazy. I am to be married on Tuesday of next week. I didn't realize that you were so serious as you really were. Here is the ring and forgive me if you can, for anything I may have done to you. .lock gasped, and everything seemed to whirl! He staggered to his feet with the ring tightly clutched in a nerveless hand, and stumbled blindly to the door. He got in his car and drove mechanically toward Hamilton. All of a -sudden something snapped in his head and he became perfectly calm with but one thing in his mind. That was to forget, no matter how. Upon arriving home, he packed two suit cases. A pawn shop gave three hundred dollars for the ring. He took the first train out after having procured two quarts of gin. After having drunk himself into a stupor, he got off at a station that happened to be Albany. Jock had his senses enough to telegraph his parents. The telegram read: Delores to be married Tuesday. Do not look for me. She marries some one else. The heartbroken parents again turned to God for aid. Why should they suf- fer such anguish! It wasn't fair, but it had happened and must be reckoned with. llfir. Cartier at once took a train for Albany, having found that Jock was there, by the telegram. Upon arriving, he could find no trace of Jock except that he had checked out of a hotel that morning. There followed a heartbreaking fruitless pursuit Fifty-one E. a1:::::: K -1 ,Zgh-3-:gi q throughout New York state. llflr. Cartier did not dare enlist the services of the police, because of the nasty publicity. Albany, VVatertown, Malone, VVhitehall, Utica, Syracuse, then back to Albany, went lVIr. Cartier, always getting there too late. Telegrams came from Jock at frequent intervals, asking for money. This was always given, for fear that something would happen if he were without funds. A pitiful plea for him to come home always accompanied the money, but jock scarcely heeded them because he kept himself in a constant alcoholic stupor. Need we go on with this sordid, heartbreaking description? It ended with the suddeness that it started with. Jock became totally unconscious on a train out of Syracuse en rout to Alexandria. His identification was found in his clothes. He was taken to a hospital and lVIr. Cartier was summoned. For one week Jock was entirely out of his head, suffering with the D. T. When he 1'eturned to normalcy, but a shadow of his former self was left. A white drawn face accompanied by a weak, nerve-wracked body presented itself to the beautfiul sunshine that day in June when Jock again became himself. He came home, accompanied by Mr. Cartier, a physical and mental wreck, that time and care alone could mend, with a dull, gripping, grinding, poisonous hatred in his heart for the opposite sex. Slowly but surely, Jock regained his health, even though he did not try very hard. Through the watchful, loving care of his mother, the warped frame and mind languidly came into their own. After several months of convalescing, Jock was again able to enjoy life as he normally should have, but that burning hatred still smouldered in his heart. Jock was eighteen now, but he looked many years older. YVhen 1he had fully recovered health, 'his warped mind hatiched out this heinous plan. He would make some one suffer as he had suffered-and then laugh. This would be revenge of the most refined sort. He selected several victims, but did not succeed in making them think enough of him to really hurt when he threw them down. Une day, some time later, a beautiful girl crossed his path. She seemed a bit interested in him so that Jock, ever waiting to play his cruel game with human hearts, at once reciprocated and a romance started. The girl, Caroline lVIcKay, was a lover of all things beautiful. Jock pretended to be interested in the beauties of nature and they held many conversations on nature's phenomona. In this way, did Jock litterally talk his way into Carolines' heart. One day when they were driving along the shores of a charming little lake, Caroline broke the silence by saying. jock, you are the most understanding friend I have ever had. Why don't you try to make something of yourself instead of drifting? Jock stopped the car and turned to Caroline. Carol, if I had some one like you to spur me on, I think I would try to do something. Do you think you could ever call me more than a friend ? Jock dear, I guess I've loved you from the start. I tried not to because I didn't think you would want my love, but I can't help it. I am yours if you Wallt me. H Fifty-two 5. x X Jock thrilled with feindish joy, while Caroline was experiencing her first real love. .. Things went on much the same, Jock promoting the affair until he was sure there was no doubt of the fact that Carol still loved him. Wliat fiendish plan was going on in that wretched mind? Like a serpent play- ing with its' victim before anihilating it, breaking will power, sense of caution, decency, pushing every thing that human civilization is based on, before it, that awful distorted idea of revenge. Nothing can stop it now. As a vampire bat drinks the blood of its victim thus did Jock mean to sap strength, vitality and even reason from this beautiful young thing. Can nothing stop him? Oh Heavens! If there is a God, why do you look on from above and let this horrible scheme develop. Is it necessary in your scheme of the universe, that a beautiful, innocent, sweet child should fall into the clutches of an almost-maniac? Do you allow this? We shall see-: As time went on, Caroline became more and more in love with Jock. He was indeed, a perfect lover. She wanted for nothing that he did not do his best to pro- cure for her. Carol planned and dreamed by the hour of the time when they would be as one. This great love completely possessed her. Every waking moment was filled with thoughts of Jock. Every sleeping moment was crowded with Jock. Happy with him, miserable without himg such was the state of affairs when Jock prepared to strike, swiftlyg and with its' terrible effect made a certainty. On a beautiful evening in june, the moon looked down on a powerful sedan, wending its way over hill and dale. At the wheel sat Carol, Jock occupied the other half of the front seat. After having driven for about an hour the sedan slowed to a stop in a spot beneath whispering aspens that seemed to breathe romance and the earths awaking from its long slumber. This spot over looked a lake, so silent, so still, as though it were holding its breath expecting the extraordinary to happen. The moon Cast its silvery path across the shimmering bosom of the water. All nature seemed hushed and expectant. Could any one with a soul blaspheme the night by performing a horrible deed? It doesn't seem possible and yet God and fate had combined to bring forth an animal in human form, utterly without a heart or soulg one who had no respect for the great law of the universe--loveg one whose very being was permeated with the poisonous germ of revenge. Poisoned blood leaped through the veins of this being. The time was fast approaching when a blow was to be struck that would shatter every code of humanity had ever estab- lished for the welfaregand happiness of human beings. The silence was broken by Carols silvery voice. Jock, do you still love me? I know you do but tell me again and again. It is all I live for. God has been so good to me in giving me you. VVhen I touch you it seems almost saeriligious, you are so wonderful in my eyes. For a moment Jock faltered, was he going on with this? Then the old spirit of revenge surged over him like a wave. Now, now, noir, was the time to strike, - Carol, you will have to plan your future without me. I don't love you. I don't even like you. I hate you! almost shouted jock. Nerveless hands fell from his neck, a pitiful little hysterical laugh jarred the evenings' stillness. ' Jock, I guess you don't mean that. Please don't frighten me so. Don't look Fifty-three' 45 I Q I at me that way. Jock stop, God! please help me. Jock was prying the ring loose from her tightly clinched finge1'. Cruelly he twisted the wrist till the little hand slowly opened and the ring was forced from her. Witli a hideous cry of exul- tation he sent the ring flying out over the expanse of water. Don't sit there like a half-wit. Take me home and forget me if you can, said Jock with a diabolical grin. Slowly, slowly, the truth was dawning on Carol. -lock didn't love her, he never had loved her, he was gone from her life. A numbness stole over her body as she mechanically set the car in motion. Slowly it slid down the white strip of roadway which shone like a ribbon in the moonlight. Faster, faster, it flew. 50, 60, 70, 72, 74- miles per hour the speedometer registered. Fear never enterd the mind of jock. A fierce feeling of exultation thrilled his whole being, driving every other emotion before it. The car swerved, righted itself, swerved again and-: Crash, 1'-1'-1'-l'-I'-1'-lp, bang, the sound of crumpling metal and breaking glass rent the still summer air. A piercing scream and all was still. The moon again looked down this night. A crumpled smoking pile of wreckage blotted the country side. It peered closer. The still form of a girl lay twisted and distorted in a pool of blood. A gash that had severed both jugulars in the neck grinned hideously at the moon. Beneath the wreckage could be seen the unconscious form of a boy. A sardonic smile still gleamed from the blood spattered face. His' legs were pinned beneath a ton of torn metal, wood and glass. A cloud slowly enveloped the moon as if to shut off this gruesome sight. After a short time an antomobile came to a stop beside the pile. of debris that was once a car. Jock's mother alighted first. Ah why, did fate have to send his mother and father at this moment of all times. The first thing to greet her eyes was Carol. With a scream she turned her back and looked straight into the unseeing eyes of the twisted body beneath the wreckage. Upon recognizing it she fainted. Nor was it possible to bring her back to consciousness. By this time several cars had gathered. lN'Ir. Cartier had completely lost his reason for a time. Finally an ambulance was summoned from the nearby city and the bodies loaded in. Nlrs. Cartier was also taken. By this time Mr. Cartier had quite recovered his composure so that he was able to give the names, etc. of the injured people. First to the hospital, the ambulance swiftly drove. lVIr. Cartier and .lock were left thereg but Caroline who but a brief time before was alive, virile beautiful handi- work of God and nature was slowly driven to her home-deadg never to breathe, never to laugh and love, again. Youth shattered and torn beyond recognition. l'Vhyl Because one girl had played fast and loose with an impressionable boy's heart. Jock recovered after having both legs amputated just above the knee. llirs. Cartier died a few days later from a stroke brought on by the happenings. lVIr. Cartier, a broken! tired old man wandered from place to place, ever seeking the blue bird of happiness that he had had once but which was so cruelly snatched away from him by a wayward son. He left a sum of money in trust for the care of .lock who Fifty-four .QF 5-:::::.: I R . ::?:.z.z r- EET? Xlg, 2 ,Z-.ff , 5 r ....,T7 - A, .

After a time he accepted the inevitable and decided that although his punishment was great he deserved it ten fold. You, my patient reader, may say what a sordid and distorted tale this is. I am portraying a young mans' life to you exactly at it was told to me by him during the long sunny afternoon at the cripples home. He seems to be contented with his lot but in reality he has lost practically every emotion and reacts alike to kindness or cruelty. Nothing matters any more. The happiest thing he has to look forward to is when the angel of death comes to transport the torn emaciated body out of this world to-who can say where? This narrative, I grant, may be an exception to the general run of humanity, but there are pitfalls and temptations assailing the young people of today on every side. In spite of constant parental care and protection, many have gone the path that jock travelled even though not quite so spectacularly. . Mothel's! and Fathers! Wake up. Don,t sit in snug complacence and see the cream of the younger generation plunged into an abyss from which they may never ascend, and if they do, they ascend marked for life. I could go on for hours citing evils that are forever beckoning this generation of boys and girls. You may raise your hands in mock dismay and say, What shall we do ? , you who would have us think you so wise for your years? Did you ever stop to think that perhaps there were men and women who were trained to understand and cope with the emotions and new born ideas slowly coming to life in the minds of maturing boys and girls? Men and women who have spent years in studying human nature until they are able to guide your child over the impressionable years?

I mia: I Mqgqg g get football llfiynderse at Starkey Starkey started her football season by playing llffynderse Academy, of Seneca Falls. The game was played in the terrific heat of October first. In the first quarter, Starkey succeeded in making a touchdown just as the whistle blew. The second quarter went to the opponents for a touchdown. This made the score at the beginning of the second half, six to six, and anyone's game. The opposing team proved to be the stronger in line plays, and crashed through for another touchdown The last quarter found Starkey still fighting to make the seven points needed to win her victory. The game was played in Starkey's usual sportsman-like manner and on her own field. The score was twelve to six in favor of Seneca Falls. Cook at Starkey The following Saturday, Starkey was favored with perfect football weather. The game scheduled with Cook Academy was thought, by most of the people and students, to be a foolhardy undertaking. Even as the twenty-eight men from Cook filled the dressing room, the fourteen Starkey men only remarked on the gigantic size of these Cas they expressed itj l3ozos. The game started and Starkey rushed the line and ran end runs to Cook's four-yard line. Starkey's second down and four to go, when a fumble was covered by one of Cook's players who ran ninety- six yards for a touchdown. The point was also made. This was supposed by all the spectators to be the downfall of Starkey. The team quickly rose in spirit, however, and instead of lying down, they fought all the harder. By the splendid judgment of Capt. Boyce who quarter-backed, and by Starkey's exceptionally hard tackling, she managed in the remaining three quHI'tCl'S to raise the score to 13-6 in her favor. Painted Post On Saturday, October 15, Starkey played at Painted Post. The Post beat Starkey 20-O on the Post field last year, and tied 0-O on our own Held. So the game was looked forward to with kecnest interest by the students of the Seminary. In the first quarter, Robinson received the ball from center and plunged through right side for a touchdown. Then Starkey lined up and Sammy again plunged through the line for the point. The second quarter was hard fought, but nothing was accomplished in the raising of a score. In the third quarter Chuck Corwith intercepted one of Painted Post's passes and ran for a touchdown. Red Davis received Radley's pass and scored the point. In the last quarter, the Post mustered up strength and pounded Starkey's light line for a touchdown, but one kick for the point was blocked which left the score 13-14 in Starkey's favor. .Shortsville On Saturday of October 22, while the sun shown brightly, the Starkey field was put in order for the coming onslaught, which was to occur in the afternoon between Fifty-nine 1 , In I. Q- NNN ff-f 0 Starkey and her mighty rival Shortsville, who the season before, had defeated her two games out of three. Starkey succeeded in making two touchdowns the first quarter and two the next leaving the score, at the end of the half, twenty-four to nothing in Starkey's favor. The second half the boys seemed to lack interest in the game, but when VVarfield of Shortsville caught a pass and ran for a touchdown the Starkey boy's interests were immediately aroused. In the last quarter they showed the metal of which they were made and raised the score so that it rested forty to six in Starkey's favor at the end of the game. lylynderse Academy VVhen Starkey arrived at Seneca Falls on October 29, the boys admitted that they were not without some fear of defeat by the strong Falls team. The first quarter of the game was played with neither side scoring. At the end of the second quarter with thirty seconds left to play, Starkey's reverse play scored a touchdown, Davis carrying the ball for thirty yards. This play was again Pulled in the third quarter under similar conditions, Davis againscoring. The last quarter was similar to the Hrst, neither side scoring. This left the game resting with Starkey at a score of twelve to nothing. Shortsville On November the 5th, Starkey travelled to Shortsville through the snow and sleet of an exceedingly cold day. The game was not relished by either team but it had to be played and it was. Hanson who played in the place of Davis, started things rolling by making a touchdown in the first play of the game. This was in- spiration to the Starkey men and several other touchdowns followed. Shortsville had to be satisfied with being, properly tackled, powerfully held, and at times thrown for great losses. They finally escaped a shut-out by making a safety which left the score 27 to 2 at the final whistle. Clyde On the twelfth of November Starkey arrived at the Clyde High School and pre- pared to play a game which is called football. But when they reached the field they decided to call it Water Polo and sang lVIuddy Waters instead of the Alma lX'Iater. During the game Starkey made four touchdowns, don't be surprised at this, but the referee managed to find Starkey either Off sides or only ten men on the line of scrimageu and so the Starkey men came home defeated six to nothing, but with a determination to prove in the coming game on the home field who was who , Clyde or Starkey. Clyde at Starkey The following Saturday, November 19, found neutral odicials from out of town to referee the game between Clyde and Starkey. This game was going to prove that we must be beaten fairly and squarely or not at all and it was also going to prove which team was capable of playing the better class of football. You can judge this for yourself from the following data: Forward passes completed Starkey 4, Clyde Sixty XX My g i i l ssl IEW 3 1. The score by quarters: First quarter. Starkey 6, Clyde Og second quarter, Starkey 6, Clyde 0, third quarter Starkey 0, Clyde O, fourth quarter Starkey 6, Clyde 0. Total, Starkey 18, Clyde O. Thus Starkey reaped another victory. Elmira We closed the season this year on Thanksgiving day with a game with the Elmira junior Varsity. All the boys were pepped up to the enth degree, not only with their usual school spirit, but because our true friend and supporter, lVI1'. Lester Cor- with, had promised them a banquet, if they won the game. The day was a very bad one with a continuous down pour of rain throughout the game. Despite the fact of the weight of our opponents, the boys plowed through their line time and again for touchdown after touchdown. Davis' open field running was the big feature of the game. At the close Starkey had won by a wide margin, thirty to nothing. : D fb Ennis ikahlrg Due to an illness which lVIr. Radley contracted prior to the taking of these pictures, he was unable to be present for any of the athletic settings. YVe, however, did not overlook this versatile young promising athlete for his position in the three sports warrant his presence among his comrades with whom he has so gallantly played. Lewis is a three letter man who demonstrates his prowess in football, basketball and baseball. During our successful football season this year, Lewis played the position of full back. He became reputed as being better than any of his opponents by punting the pig skin quite a few yards further. In basketball Lewis developed speed and accuracy in his position as left forward. In baseball he was invaluable as a first baseman and a pinch hitter. Sixty-one hall PI awk Mugs E I. Corwirn Boyce QMgr.Q, oachj CC ....

E. fllllgrr We have had the facts brought home to us, more or less forceably, at different times, that scholastic pursuits are of major importance at Starkey and athletics was secondary. This is as it should be, but :-Without athletics, if one looks at it from a financial standpoint, a school will literally go to pieces. Without the right person at the head of this all-important branch of school life, it is a detriment. Starkey was indeed fortunate in enlisting the services of Physical Director Oliver D. lVIeyer. Mr. Meyer has been with us for four yea1's. During these years, students have grown physically, mentally and morally under his expert council and tutelage. Those who are intimately acquainted with the school's activities, marvel at the teams he turns out from the material he is presented with. Mr. lVIeyer is a graduate of Ithaca School of Physical Education, the school for coaches conducted by Knute Rockne and Dr. Nleanwell, and besides this, he is a human store house of knowledge gained from personal experience on the gridiron, diamond and court. It is necessary for an instructor of any sort in a boarding school to be versatile, broadminded, and above all, to have personality. lVIr. Meyer has these three principal ingredients to the n-th degree. His word is accepted as final by all of the students, because he has the power and farsightedness to sense what is the thing to do on the many trying occasions that arise in the minds of the modern boarding school student. We are hoping and praying that Mr. lVIeyer will not see fit to leave us for many years to come. To find a man who could completely take his place, would be a task well nigh impossible.

Qbirls Basketball The girls basketball team was not organized until late in the year and then owing to unforeseen circumstances two of the five games scheduled were cancelled. Yet in spite of these handicaps the girls team consisted of six gallant and excellent players. Alice Voorhees, the captain, developed a wicked hook shot and proved to be a formidable opponent to the unlucky visiting player who tried to guard her. Betty Thompson, the other forward, was invaluable as feeding and at making occasional brilliant shots herself. Virginia Griffing played center, using her high reach to good advantage, and Ida Deihl, always on hand to catch the tip off, proved to be a veritable streak of lightning at cluding the baffled foe. Jean l-lonsberger and Elizabeth Crissey did noble work as guards and made their adversaries work hard for baskets. So runs the line up.

Q KNXX Af-i,,,. y ? Baseball The team of '27 was one that was composed mostly of green men who knew very little about baseball. YVe were crippled at the start by not having a catcher, but Howard Edwards finally solved this problem and filled the position well for his little experience and knowledge of the science of the game. Boyce and Bradley, two men of experience on the mound, held the Starkey box pretty full, while Radley kept first base from straying far from the diamond. Captain Searles played a fairly uheadyl' game at second, while his brother Burke did likewise on third, for part of the season. Later, I-lankey, captain for '28, played this position, changing with Robinson who then took over shortstop. Davis covered right field, and Corwith center, as he was a demon at catching 'em. This left us in reserve: a pitcher, Chuck Corwith, two outfielders, Burke Searles and Jack Potter, a pinch hitter, Hawthorne Bissell, and a few others to be placed in the game when someone was injured or could not run when he hit. Thus we see that Starkey had a fairly good defensive team. , Starkey fell down in her offensive, not because of head work on the bases, but because of lack of good hitters. She was not wholly destitute of these, however, for Bradley, Radley, Boyce were fairly heavy hitters, while Davis was a good sacrifice hitter and a good man at beating out a bunt. But we do not consider the season a failure, altho we didn't win many games, for we won experience. For a team this year, we have all that can be hoped for. This is a probable lineup: Catcher-Depew Third-Hankey, Captain Pitcher-Boyce, Corwith, Bonner Right Field-Davis, Potter First-Van Orsdale, Radley Center Field-Corwith, Searles Second-Bonner, Radley Left Field-Boyce: Crissey Shortstop-Robinson lklascots-Lamadrid, lVIorrison.
