A THE MONITOR 21
Graduation during the last term was
our goal, but now that it is accom-
plished we look back with joy and re-
gret upon many happy and interest-
Our attendance has been very good.
Our lessons? Well we're hoping that
we may continue in the High Schools
the good work of this last term. We
certainly have some fine athletes.
John Dailey came in first in the 80-yard
dash and Fred Topper was one of the
relay swimming team that broke the
city record. Vtle are justly proud of
Jean Halliday represented the class
with a line drawing for the XVana-
maker art exhibition. Our girls have
done good history work, with their
recitations and readings on the pioneer
women, in keeping alive the spirit of
those brave women who left St. Louis
in 1830 to follow the Oregon Trail.

MY PHANTOM VOYAGE

Of course, when I was in P. S. No.
9, I never expected ,to visit Europe,
Asia and Africa, but I liked to float
away in dream elouds and pretend I
was really a tourist in these conti-
In Paris. I visited the art galleries
where there was an exhibit of the
famous work of modern artists. Sev-

mut Karp. In Sweden, the great Olym-
pic games of 1940 were in progress.
Albert Maguire had won the swim-
ming championship for the United
States. In London, I met Virginia
Marshall, whom I accompanied to the
"Beauty Shop" which was owned by
On the steamer returning to Amer-
ica, after my extended tour, I was
surprised to find that the captain of
our ship was none other than Albert
Isakson. Pleasant reminiscences of
our school days we related, wondering
what might have happened to our
friends, Alfred Peavey, Robert Chilton
The boat docked. Greetings were
extended. I looked around to find
someone in that vast assembly whom
I half expected to meet me. I awoke
to find that I, Gertrude Isser, had
been traveling through dreamland with
Cook's "Tour Guide Book" open in
Here we are the SA one,
Bubbling over with mirth and fun,
Trying every test to pass,
To make a record for our class.
Our spelling We all pass with ease,
But history certainly is a tease,
Dreaded speeches Monday morn.
Make Saturday and Sunday quite
Meridians and equinox.
Tundras, steppcs and plain,
Arc enough, you will agree,
To make any one insane.
Oh me! Oh my! Oh what a time
To end this poem with a rhyme.
Joy and Grief. These are the anto-
nyms that rule the world. If the lat-
ter were left out, then this world
would be a happier place to live in.
SA2 and P. S. No. 9 have come in
contact with these two' words this
year. VVe suffered a great loss when
Mr. Rainey passed into the Beyond.
This man was a great person who
achieved his goal after years ot toil.
His goal was to put P. S. No. 9 on.top.
VVe have also had pleasant times.
One of our classmates, F. Pettrigrosso,
our captain, entertained in the Assem-
bly. Our class has a 95 per cent mem-
bership in the bank, very little late-
ness, and a good attendance record of
which we are proud.
As we are going into a graduating
class, we feel that we, like Mr. Rainey,
also have a goal to attain. That goal
is high school. After high school, the
next goal is college. After college,
there is the goal of Life.
SA2 has yet to attain more goals.
Has every class goals to reach? We
hope you have, so that you may
prepare yourselves for the joys and
griefs of Life.
Our ship has almost reached the shore,
Our voyage almost done,
The bells are ringing at our port
Our object almost won.
In many a shipwreck, storm, or gale,
VVe never went astray,
Our swimmers did a helpful part,
At midnight or at day.
XVc may reach the port just soon
For all of us to iiee
And find a seat that suits us best,
In a class room called SB.
In this class, due to one cause or an-
other, such as late entrance into
