lVhen men who have achieved great
things and have become prominent,
leave this world, the press acclaims
their deeds to the public. We do not
think it amiss at this time to mention
in our school paper, an organ in which
he took such deep pride, one whom we
consider truly great in his particular
field. Because he labored so modestly
and Within the Walls of a little red
brick schoolhouse, the public did not
hear, at the time of his passing, of the
good he did for the future citizens of
our great city.
ln his relationship with his teachers,
he stood for the highest ideals of the
profession. He was always the gen-
tleman, kind, courteous, considerate
and sympathetic. But with his boys
and girls lay his great success. He had
unbounded faith in the benefits of ath-
letics for boys of elementary school
age. He believed that such sport
helped to keep them physically fit,
mentally alert and morally straight.
VVhat could be more thrilling than to
hear him say to his boys, just before
an athletic contest or game, "Go into
this for the honor of No. 9, boys, not
for personal gain alone. Play the
game hard, don't shirk. lf you Win,
carry the honor modestlyg but, if you
lose, take it gracefully. Give credit
to your opponents for being the bet-
ter players. Persevere and learn
XVhat better preparation for Life!
There are thousands of young men
and women today, who are playing
the Game of Life in a bigger, finer way
because they came under the influence
of our dearly beloved late principal
and friend, lllr. VVilliam M. Rainey.
C ROSSING THE BAR
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the
When l put out to sea.
For tho' from out our bourne of Time
The flood, may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
VVhen l have crossed the bar.

Welcome, Dr. Korey
'tDr. Korey is coming. He is due
tomorrowf' The word spread like
wildfire through the school. The
teachers paused in their work and
wondered. "NVhat is he like? Is he
young or old? Is he nice? What will
he think of us? How will we get on
with him?" These and many other
queries were uppermost in the minds
The following day P. S. No. 9 was
alert, ready to receive its new princi-
pal. Accompanied by Mr. Van Dam,
our Superintendent, Dr. Korey visited
each class room. From the very outset,
we were drawn to him. His kindly
manner and fine administrative ability
have so permeated the atmosphere
that we teachers feel called upon to
congratulate the school and to pledge
anew our loyalty and support. IVe
also wish to take this opportunity to
extend to Dr. A. J. Korey, our new
Principal, a sincere and hearty wel-

Vanderbilt Ave. and Sterling Pl.
Brooklyn, N. Y.
June 20, 1930
Dear Dr. Korey,
NVe have been awaiting this issue of
The Monitor to say "Hello" to you.
It is our sincere hope that you are as
glad to be here with us as we are to
have you. The children of "45" have
lost a good friend but their loss has
been our gain.
Loyalty to dear old Number Nine
has always been our motto. We in-
tend to continue being loyal pupils of
Number Nine and hope that in a short
time you will have reason to be very
proud of us.
Your Boys and Girls.
The following is an excerpt from a letter
sent to Supt. Van Dam by the teachers of
P. S. No. 9:
"The faculty of P. S. No. 9 takes
this opportunity to voice its apprecia-
tion of the able and successful man-
agement of the school by Mrs. Carole
during Mr. Rainey's illness and his
absence on sabbatical leave. Her
ready helpfulness and sympathy in
our many tribulations have merited our
heartfelt gratitude. 'We tender this
testimonial as our appreciation of a
heavy burden that has been nobly
