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

school, frequent absences on account
of illness, or other reasons, the chil-
dren are older than most other boys
and girls in the 8A grade. Because
of a special program, all the pupils
have an opportunity to make up the
essential work, get into 8B classes and
finally graduate. That is why this is
called an Opportunity Class.
The boys and the girls are trying
their best, not only in their regular
class work but the boys, in shopwork
and athletics, and the girls, in cooking
Here we are, and have almost
reached our goal, the 8A grade. ,Our
next stop will be 8Bg then we must
leave No. 9. But this sad departure is
still far away, so let us enjoy our stay.
lVe started our TB term well, with
all our members depositing in the
school bank. Our attendance has been
very good during the term, and we
are proud when we are able to hang
up the gold and gray attendance ban-
our ntembers, Elsie
11er. Four of
Funke, Betty Becker, Selma Korn-
bluh, and Virginia Saper have shown
exceptionally good talent in our
Thursday morning entertainments.
VVe try to live up to No. 9 standards.
June again linds us at the end of
another hard but pleasant term.
Although TB2 has had very few 100
per cent days of school attendance,
there are fourteen pupils with perfect
records for the term.
The class officers arc:
Ohief Librarian-Emanuel Block.
During the term, ten members of
our class entertained at the TB assem-
bly with a program on George lVash-
ing-ton. Herels hoping we are all to-
gether in 8A!
NYell, friends, vacation will be al-
most here when you look at 7B3's
little voice in the Monitor. lVe shall
scatter to the four winds only to blow
back to P. S. No. 9 in the fall to start
over again. XVe hope in SA.
lVe have met with some hard luck
this term, but we seem to be getting
right up and working the harder. But
just ease your mind a little and think
what work the teachers had to do!
Vtle have one athlete, James Majil-
ton, who won second place swimming
in the relay.
This is station S. B. F. Cwhich
means 7B4j broadcasting. lVe wish to
tell you why certain members of our
class are very popular.
Two of our classmates, Frank Pic-
colo and Vincent Buckley, are star
players on the baseball team. Four
of our other students, namely, Evert
Soderlund, Abraham Sadowsky, Vin-
cent Buckley and Frank Piccolo be-
long to the Traffic Squad. They help
thc policeman lead children across
the streets in safety during school
The boys and girls of 'TB4 like Pub'-
lie School No. 9 very much and are
looking forward to being promoted
and spending other terms in this great
NN'e are not the proud possessors of
