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 through failure." 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 bar, When l put out to sea. For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood, may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face VVhen l have crossed the bar. Alfred, liord Tennyson.

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 of all. 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- come. Public School, No. 9, 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. Sincerely, Your Boys and Girls. IN APPRECIATION 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 borne." Brooklyn, March 21, l930 To the Teachers of P. S. 9, Brooklyn Ladies and Gentlemen: I acknowledge with very great plea- sure the receipt of your letter of ap- preciation of the able and successful management of the school by Mrs. Carole during the sabbatical leave granted Mr. NVilliam M. Rainey, late Principal of P. S. 9-II1 and since his death. I have already conveyed to Mrs. Carole personally my appreciation of her work. Very truly yours, EMMANUEL F. VAN DAM, District Superintendent.
