Some years ago a small establishment for the further edu­ cation of grammar school graduates was enabled by the acces­ sion of a new building to house itself in the manner of other high schools. With the new building came a good deal of ambition and a publication known as "El Espiritu." To the title of the first edition the description "de 1913" was added. Since that there has each year been an annual a little better than the preceding one. A long long time ago men got together. that is, the best men, and found that there was •a great abstract fact in the world that might be used either personally or impersonally. It was something of which those having most kept getting more, and those having least continually lost what they had. Many men of honor have died because of it and many have died to obtain it. Some have tried to punish others into giv­ ing it to them but generally on arriving at the predestined place of acquisition they have found that they had the location but not the reality. At first it was striven for continually but not carefully protected. It was so often placed on unsound foundations that those acquiring it found 'it frequently a will-o' -the-wisp that followed the whim of the fickle mob. But as the world continued and the universe still acted on the same eternal principles, the meanings of things expanded. Men and insti­ tutions such as family and state, discovered that they already had honor. Consequently they began to understand that its possession is more a question of protection and careful guar dianship than a struggle to attain it.

Claremont High School has an enviable, because honor­ able history. Her honor has been protected by scores of loyal students ever since her birth. Her athletes have preserved her honor on the field of sports by playing a hard, clean game. Her Annual and newspaper editors have endeavored to pre­ serve school spirit and the honor of C. H. S. by each year sur­ passing the record set by their predecessors. This year an Annual comes to you that we trust upholds the standard but has cost over twice as much as ever before. If the splendid co-operation of the student body which has made this edition possible continues, the return of normal conditions will bring opportunity for a splendid book. If this book is inferior, bear with us-we have done our best to guard the honor of the school. Page

This year we can safely look back and say that we have had one of the best years that Claremont High School has seen. We have had an enthusiastic and firmly united student body and we have "carried through.. with a determination to excel in everything we undertook. Our athletics have shown up especially well. We won the basketball championship for which we are justly proud. In track, baseball and tennis the honors have not falien far short of this mark. The student body has supported our teams well and the enthusiasm aroused has shown the true Clare­ mont High spirit and prophesies well for our future. The debating situation presented some difficulties on ac­ count of the break during the last two years in the interschol­ astic debating which was caused by the war. The work had to be entirely reorganized and started anew and although there is yet much to be done there is good material in sight and in the near future we should be able to produce sorne good de­ baters. Some very good work has been done in dramatics and the plays have all been successes. By starting our new paper, the Clare-Hi we have brought . illto our midst a new activity and have taken one of our greatest steps forward. It has obtai_ned a good start and ought to develop and hold one of the leading places in our endeavors. In other activities also, such as joining the Junior Red Cross as a unit and donating nearly eighty dollars to the Franco-Serbian Relief work, we have done our bit and proved what a spirit Claremont High School really has. financially, there is every prospect of finishing the year with a good bal­ ance on hand. The executive committee wishes next year's committee the best of luck. May the work be carried on with increas­ ing purpose, power, and momentum and may a greater success be theirs! MAX E. UTT.

Ever since the News and Views was started in 1916 it has been the desire of each year's edilor, as well as the student body, to make more firm the foundation for a future school paper. It can be safely said that each preceding editor has accomplished a great deal toward this end, in that through their perseverance and labor, the interest of the News and Views has been widely extended throughout the community. So great has been the interest in the school, itself, that this year it was deemed wise and necessary to start some sort of a paper representing the school, in which the beliefs, ideas and news of the school could find expression, as the two columns in the Courier, which Mr. Bell so generously gave to us was an insufficient amount of space to include any but the more essential material. Upon investigation we found that it would be impossible to edit a paper s:milar to the College "Student Life" on ac­ count of the cost of printing and the exceedingly high prices of the necessary material. at this time. Nevertheless, in Feb­ ruary a small paper was started which received the name of Clare-Hi. With the faithful work of the staff combined with the co-operation of the student body this paper was put upon a substantial base. We feel and hope that this is the starting of a great movement which will, in the following years, be carried on and improved by the succeeding editors. If, in the future years a printing press might come into the possession of the High School. a larger paper could be suc­ cessfully printed by the students themselves and some valu­ able knowledge of journalism and printing could be secured by any student who so wished� We hope that the establishment of the Clare-Hi will make it possible to accomplish this end within a few years. Throughout the year there have been many students who have willingly contributed articles to both the News and Views and the Clare-Hi. To these people, to the student body, which has co-operated with the editor in this work, and to Miss Lockwood who has willingly devoted a portion of her time each week to the paper, I, as editor of the News and Views and Clare-Hi wish to extend my gratitude and appreci­ ation for their services.

lil�r JJ!orum lllrbnting �urirty At the beginning of the school year it was thought by all those interested in our activities that there was need of some organization in which those interested in debating might find expression. So acting with this purpose in view the boys of the student body assembled and considered the matter. As a result of this movement the F arum Debating Society was organized for the purpose of engaging in debate, and public speaking in general. Our society is organized on a thorough and practical basis, the membership is not limited, for it is open to all boys who are interested. Our meetings are con­ ducted in a businesslike manner and are proving to be not only interesting but also instructive. At each of our bi-monthly meetings four members present a debate which is usually followed by an interesting extem­ poraneous speech. The regular business meeting of the society immediately follows this and then these pleasant gatherings are happily ended with some simple refreshments provided by sev­ eral members. To us, it seemed wise to offer some reward to the best debaters in order to encourage interest and thereby improve our work; so the two best debaters at the end of the year will be awarded medals. Although the purpose of our society is primarily that of debating we plan to have a few simple social events to in­ �rease the good fellowship and interest in our society. The merry gathering of members and their lady friends at our mid­ year party at the high school was a great success and we hope that this will be only one of many happy gatherings. We feel that our organization is a worthy movement; so our society banner and our classy pinS: of which we are justly proud, indicate our sincere interest in Claremont High School, and in our society which we believe is a great asset to the wel­ fare of the school. The hearty co-operatidn, approval and keen interest in our movement by the faculty has certainly aided us and we as a society wish to express our sincere appreciation of it. Our two presidents, Milton Gardner and Homer Eaton, have contributed not a little to the success of this our first year. Although we have not succeeded in carrying all of our plans to completion we nevertheless think that this, our first year, has been a great success, for we have established a truly democratic and instructive society, an organization which will also encourage friendly relationship with one another; then true co-operation will follow and thus the society will contribute to the success of the school.

Another year has passed and the time has come when we, too, must say farewell to the school which has been for four years the scene of our work and our play. We cannot do this without sincere regret, regret in breaking all the ties and associations of high school l-ife, regret that in the many complications of school life we have sometimes forgotten the ideals which, as a class and as a school, we have stood for. On entering high ._school four years ago as freshmen, a new world and a new ._;ista of opportunities was opened to us. And now, four years hence, we leave that world with all its associations which have become so familiar and dear to us and passing beyond these gates of knowledge enter into that greater school of life. The time has passed all -too swiftly and in a few years the Class of '20 will be forgotten save for a few magic mem­ ories. Yet we, too, like all other classes before us, have left our mark; some changes, vague as they may be, have taken place a.3 a result of our career; some influence we have had whether· it be for good or evil. Although our record has not been brilliant it has been readable and we, too, deserve a place in the annals of the school. In scholarship, that phase important above all and too often neglected, we have stood high; in athletics we have made a name for ourselves. What we have undertaken, those activities in which we as individuals have had a share, we have done for the most part well. We have striven to be loyal to the school and to uphold her stan­ dards. To those who have instructed and guided us. who have brought something worth while into our lives, insofar as we may, we express our heartfelt appreciation. 0!1 you who are left behind, the task falls of carrying for­ ward the work and the activities of the high school. May you do it far better than we have done, and united in purpose may you create a finer school spirit, the true spirit of Democracy. We, the Class of 1920, cannot express our gratitude or sufficiently repay the debt which we owe to Claremont High School. Page Twc11/.1•-l'ight


ALONE IN THE MIST Alone in the mist that shrouds the earth, And wraps it in a mantle that makes dearth Of sights and sounds upon this waste so drear Where nought is seen and no sound strikes the ear. Far off there, lonely trees uprear their height And seem like warning fingers in the night. And o'er them, laughing low, the weeping sky, While through them breezes sigh as they pass by. The mist rolls by, an endless mass of gray, Relentless, closing down upon the way. And where was seen no sight and heard no sound Strange shimm'ring shapes and shudd'ring sighs abound. These phantoms and these ceaseless shrieks and cries, Torment me, unt'l other v¡s¡ons r'se, And I behold a glowing fireside's cheer, With life, sweet warmth, bright color, laughter dear. But as that fireside's warmth and cheer I feel Those crowding mists once more around me 9teal. Once more upon my cheek blows their cold breath, I sec again this gray world, still as death. I wander on in gloom alone, alo:e, And somewhere near I hear the coyote's moan. Then silence,-and the warning trees so high The dreary waste and leaden weeping sky. FLORENCE ELIZABETH DUVALL, '20.

lliifr You may lead a horse to water, But you cannot make him drink; You may send a boy to college, But you cannot make him think. You may tell them to be saving, But they'll never save a cent; You may urge them to be building. But they'll keep on paying rent. You may write a lot of verses That you'll never sec in print; You may tell a bore you're busy, But he'll never take the hint. You may lead some men to business, But they'll never make a start; You may show some men their duty, But they'll never do their part. You may lead a horse to water, But you'll find this true, I think: That unless the horse is thirsty, There's no way to make him drink.

Imagine our grief when we found at the opening of school only one of last year's letter men. This man was Cap­ tain Wendell Lorbeer. Every man realized he had a chance for the team and a lot of enthusiasm resulted. We had three practice games-two with Bonita, and one with La Verne-which helped in the choosing of the team and the determining of the relative strength of the various teams. One happy event which entirely changed our outlook was the securing of Mr. Alonzo Taylor as coach. Mr. Taylor pro­ ceeded to guide the abundance of pep displayed by the ath­ letes in such a way as to make a team which knew the science of basketball and how it should be played. Our first league game was with the undersized whirlwinds of Montebello. Our life-sized center, Homer Eaton, would look around for his man only to find him crawling through his legs. More than half the points scored by both teams were made from shooting free goals. Lorbeer had that little arti­ cle down to a science, that game. We soon showed them which was the better team and won 23 to 12. We stayed around our home town for the next games. The first of these was with Bonita and it was SOME game; one of the speediest ever played on these courts. Our friend, Mr. Shields, of Bonita, was successfully caged by our guard system and his wonderful shooting ability was rendered use­ less. In this game the work of the coach began to evidence itself. Score 30 to 24. The La Verne game was characterized as was the Bonita game by the splendid teamwork of the squad. Every man on the team seemed to know where every other man was and where he should be at a certain time, so that the ball got down to the man under the goal time after time and all he had to do was to make an easy shot at goal. Score-42 to 20. The next games we won by comfortable margins: C. H. S. 42. Downey 12; C. H. S. 62, El Monte 12. Who says Claremont · High School can't play basket�ll? We went down to Norwalk decidedly confident of vic­ tory and got what was coming to us-a good beating. Our men were unused to the court but that was no sufficient reason for the defeat of 32 to 19. The last game of the season we came back and proved that we certainly had a right to the championship for we won by the healthy score of 56 to 18 from Puente. If one was asked why C. H. S. won the basketball cham• pionship the answer would be that the team understood team• work as a science, and the reason the boys understood it was that the coach knew his business. The whole school takes off its hat to Mr. Taylor. Pane Tlrirly-niue

Wrurlt Track has come and gone this year and if we wt'!re dis­ appointed we certainly had no reason to be. We lost about half our team last year and prospects were not overly bright. We were unable to obtain a coach, which did not help matters in the least, and Captain Shaw had to fill both capacities as coach and captain. Shaw formulated plans for an interclass track meet lo get a line on the promising material and which way it promised. The Seniors won this meet, the Juniors tag­ ging closely behind. The day for the Gala Meet came around with the dope on the C. H. S. team rather uncertain. But as soon as the pre­ liminary sprints were run off it was quite evident that Clare­ mont was on the map. Goodnow got second in the SO and Shaw fourth in the 100. And who doesn't like to see Gard­ ner run the 440? Ifs more exciting than running the Peace Conference. H. Eaton came thru with fourth in the shot put and Charlie was careful to see that he kept his four-leaf clover within whistling reach and thusly gained the fourth place medal in the pole vault. Hitchcock grabbed a few points in the jumps as did Bell. As Dan Milliken had his track reputation to make he lost no time in doing it. He got second in the low hurdles. Richards also felt ii his duty to do something, with a result that he got third in the high hurdles and fourth in the lows. Citrus took lirst, La Verne second, Monrovia third (thanks to Massa Edward Shaw) and Claremont fourth. The next Saturday we undertook to beat La Verne in the Valley League Meet at Puente. If forh.1ne had shoved seven more points our way we would have colTipleted the undertak­ ing. The meet was a thriller such as is only seen in this part of the country. Gardner won the 440, Goodnow the I 00, Hitchcock the high jump, and H. Eaton missed first in the shot by three-fourths of an inCh. C. Eaton kept up the repu­ tation of the family by winning second in the pole vault. Bell feeling especially frisky won second in the high jump. Good­ now gathered in some more points in the sprints, also Milliken kept on making his reputation by winning second in both hurdles. Other point w:nners were Lorbeer. Sheet, and Shaw. This year's track team was a true representative of the kind of stuff the high school puts out. They all did swell work and certainly no one has any cause for being disappointed,

Felton Taylor we have a coach who has made the team what it is by his hard, faithful- coaching and his generous encourage­ ment.

To date we have lost league games to Norwalk, Puente

and Montebello,

but we are expecting to come out better

against Bonita. El Monte and our ancient rivals, La Verne. With the large amount of underclass material being developed this year Claremont should be able to give a good account of herself in the future. P(lgc Forty-two

�nrirty SENIOR RECEPTION It is indeed a fine custom of Claremont High School to have Senior Receptions, when the Seniors have a chance to have a good handshaking with all their schoolmates and teach­ ers, when they can see everybody decked out in their best "Sunday go to meetin"', and to remember them that way. Such was the time that we had at the Senior Reception at the High School last June. After the good time, the pro­ gram in the auditorium was the center of interest, and after that, delicious refreshments were the things of importance.

FROSH JOLLY-UP ""All faces Aushing fair

With laughing eyes, forsooth, And in the pulsing air, The tale of youth, youth, youth...

Oh, boy I Whal a grand time we had at the Freshman J oily-Up. They hpt us busy for some time playing different games and going from place to place to play them. Then they told us to get partners and go into the auditorium. After that we went up stairs where the best of refreshments were served.

FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE PARTY The evening of October, the twenty-fourth, was the scene of a masquerade at the high school given by the Sophomores . could recognize his best in honor of the Freshmen. No one friend or worst enemy so disguised was everyone by the vari­ ous costumes. The entertainment was in the auditorium, after which refreshments were served in the upstairs hall.

SE IORITA HOP "How we went dancing and chancing so merrily, Gliding and glancing about and around I Jazz music playing and swaying till, verily, Hearts went a-maying in mazes of sound!" The Seniorita Hop was given by the Senior girls to the girls of the three lower classes. It began by a grand march led by Miss Willows and May Case and was followed by twenty dances. Punch was served by Grammar School girls who wore the Senior Class colors. l'11yc forty-fit•••


JUNIOR PICNIC

A large majority of the Junior Class motored to Stod­ dard's Camp soon after school Friday afternoon on the sixth of February. Every member of the party enjoyed a hike up the canyon and returned with a fine appetite to enjoy the delicious supper that had been planned by the committee in charge. After supper outdoor games were played. They went home after having "oodles" of fun and that picnic will not be forgotten for some time by those who attended it.

FRESHMAN GIRLS SUPPER

"The graces" (Freshman girls who don't play baseball) invited the girls of the baseball team to a picnic supper at Lois Baughman's home on February 6th. After the delicious supper, games furnished the entertainment.

FRESHMAN PARTY

On St. Valentine's evening, February 14th, the Fresh­ men celebrated by having a class party at the home of Lois Baughman. The rooms were decorated with red hearts, ar­ rows, and cupids. The games played were symbolic of the occasion. Refreshments were served consisting of cake and ice cream.

TRACK PARTY

The track men started a new thing this year by having a party and inviting their girl friends. The party was held at the home of Frank Hamilton. Card playing furnished the en­ tertainment the earlier part of the evening and was followed by refreshments consisting of fruit salad, sandwiches, punch and ice cream.

PROGRESSIVE PARTY AND CANDY PULL

On February 27th the Junior girls gave a progressive party and candy pull to the Junior boys after the track meet. They all met at the home of Helen Barnett where some good, familiar, peppy games were enjoyed. Then they all pro­ gressed to Ruth Gemmell's home, where the task of pulling candy was the program. Although the party was impromptu a happy evening was spent. l'oyc Forty-sis


FORUM ACTIVITIES The boys' debating society, the Forum, had planned to have a hayride to San Dimas Canyon on Saturday, January 3rd. for themselves and their girl friends. but on account of rain, it was impossible, Instead a party was given in the evening. It was announced that the event was to take the form of a leap year party. Many exciting and interesting games were played after which very hearty refreshments were served. Piano music and singing closed a most enjoyable evening. SENIOR DANCES Hourly joys be still upon you Each one tripping on his toe. An enjoyable dance was given by Frank Miller at his home in San Dimas on February 27th. Good music was fur­ nished and later in the evening refreshments of fruit salad and chocolate were served. Another event of the Seniors was a dance at the home of Elsie Bell. Music was furnished by their victrola and dur­ ing the evening refreshments were served. Another dance occurred on February I 7th, at Stuart's Inn. Several couples were present. Other such dances were held at the homes of the Senior members during the year. CARD PARTIES A few fortunate members of the Junior Class were in­ vited to Ada Hand's home on March 1 sf to a card party. A fine time was reported. Then they went to the home of Alice Audrous where victrola music was enjoyed. On March 25th a few couples were invited to Arthur Hitchcock's home to play five•hundred. A fine time was the unanimous vote. Refreshments were served. SOPHOMORE PARTY On Friday night. February I 3th. the Sophomores had a class gathering which took the form of a progressive party. The home of Mary Eaton was the starting point. The second station was Marion Hill's. The next place was the home of Selwyn Rich, and last but not least, was Roger Smith· s. A peppy time was enjoyed at every station by playing lively games. Delicious refreshments were served at the last station. !'age for/J•SC'l'CII


GREEN STOCKINGS A great deal of talent was shown in the production of Green Stockings at the high school, Friday, December 12th, 1919. Miss Bell as Celia did excellent acting and some quick thinking. If she had not thought quickly no doubt she would still be an old maid, managing her father, William Faraday's, household, and keeping her Aunt Ida company, or else mar­ ried to old Mr. Grice. As it was, she shocked her sisters, Madge, Evelyn and Phyllis, and aroused the attentions of Raleigh and Steele. She didn't have to wear green stockings at Phyllis and Bobby's wedding. And last, but not least, she captured the affections of Col. Smith. The play was given under the direction of Miss Helena Mackenzie and the acting throughout. and the play as a whole did credit to her work. If those who follow do as well as these who go before, Claremont High School's place in the stars is already reserved.

THE ROMANCERS AND IN THE ZONE Two excellent one-act plays were given by part of the Sophomore English Class on April 1 7th. They were under the direction of Miss Helena Mackenzie and ehowed careful coaching. Though amateurs, each player did his part well. Page Forty-eight


"MILESTONES" The Senior Play might truly be considered another "Milestone" along the road of 1920's achievements. When the Seniors selected the play they undertook one of the most difficult dramatic efforts ever presented at Claremont High School. Not only had the underlying theme-that of the yielding of the Past to the Present and Future-to be care� fully brought out; but the characterizations especially of the actors playing people undergoing the subtle changes of three generations had to be of a very superior sort to be convincing. But, thanks to the untiring work of the Seniors, in the play and behind the scenes, and to Miss Mackenzie who di­ rected it. they certainly "put it over." The types, for the most part. were excellently chosen and the play was so en• acted as to keep perfectly the continuity of the play, without making for monotony-not an easy task as the second and third acts were practically only variations of the first. The atmosphere of English life was well sustained, and the numerous touches now and then. were so skilfully interwoven, that they in no way interfered with the unfolding of an unusually dramatic plot. Although this was in no way a play with stars, the indi• vidual hits were many; but these personal successes by no means overshadowed the success of the play as a whole. , . Milestones" will stand out as an achievement of which the Senior class has every right to be very proud.

SIX WHO PASS WHILE THE LENTILS BOIL On the evening of Gala Day, March 6th, 1920, enter• tainments were given by each school that entered in the track meet. Claremont presented a one•act play, "Six Who Pass While the Lentils Boil." It revealed to us the story of the queen who was saved from death by the faithfulness of a boy who had remained home to watch the lentils boil. Pag,· Forty•rmll'


THE ETERNAL MOUNTAINS In silence rest the mountains Watching thru the deathless years, Snow-crowned, majestic, indifferent To man's labor, laughter, and fears. They saw man make his entrance On this green valley stage; And they see the vain part that he plays In the act that lasts for an age. When the curtain falls on man-kind,

And the futile fuss and endeavor; They stay and brood in the stillness, Quiet and changeless forever.

Upon seeing him they climbed into his lap, entreating him to tell them a story. '"Wall," he began, ··J was jes' reading a book by a fellow named Shakespeare, at least that's what it says but I don't believe it for I always thot Shakespeare was a good writer. It's about two lovers, Romiet and Juleo of Verona, who was star crossed-" ""Before these here lovers �ver seen each other their Dads had been chewing the rag fer quite a spel!." "But, Grandpa, why did they quarrel?" interrupted his grand• children. "Wall, I don"t know exactly; guess Capulet"s chickens flew de coop and made a meal on Montague's garden or mebbe Montague's Aivver broke its chain and wandered into Capulet's orchard and et the new leaves, or mebbe-wall, anythin' might 'ave happened. It seems they had many servants and every time the servants of one house met the servants of the other they would chew their thumbs and generally dis• turb the peace. This happened so many times that the prince got tired of always arrestin' somebody-guess his jails were gettin' full or somethin'-and so he said that if there was any more street scraps all those who partook would be pronounced Bolsheviks and be deported, that's what he said. "Romiet Montague was a young milksop of Verona. He hadn't never as yet got into any of them fights fer he was too busy being in love. He spent all of his time mooning and moar.ing until he had injured his health. "Things went along all right until old man Capulet decided to give a Masque Ball. Romiet"s friends thought they would mask up and see if they couldn't beat Capulet out of some refreshm�ts, he not knowing 'Course they argued Romiet into going with them.

UNGORA MIURA, '20.

FORTY THOUSAND FEET Three mechanics joined hands, and the man at the end of th e chain grasped one blade of the great propellor. Together they 1wung it back and forth and then with a quick motion pull ed it past corepres­ sion. There was a quick spluttering, a succ ession of explosions and the men l eaped back. The propellor blades merged into a whirling blur and the roar of th e exhaust steadied and deepened. The pilot, gog�led and wrapped till he resembled an arctic explor er, raced the engine once or twice as a final test and waved a mittened hand to the mechanics who pulled away the blocks from in front of the wheels. The narrow winged tri-plane taxied easily over the level field, gained in speed and leaped into the air lik e an angry giant dragon-fly. In a short time the machine had spiraled out of sight in the daz­ zling blue sky, and the mechanics went back to their work. The little group of officials who had come to watch the t esting of the new plane moved off to the porch of a nearby house where they sat and talked. The pilot had been told to take the machine as high as it would go. It was a new tri-plane, perf ected to the greatest possible degree from the lessons and inventions of the war. It was smooth-bodied, compact and clean lined, suggesting tr emendous power and speed. It roared up­ ward thru the cl ear morning sky, its wings flashing as it wheel ed and turned. The earth dropped slowly away. The vari-colored patches of

A good while later on a ,harp turn the plane .swayed and ,lipped in the treacherou1 air. The pilot righted it 1kilfully, and pu1hed the throttle wide open. The tri-plane 1eemed to bound upward under the new impetus, but not for long. The barometer needle moved more and more ,lowly. Finally the pilot forced the noae of the machine a little too high and the propellor biting into thin air could not drag the weight upward. The plane pauu:d, .staggered, and 1wooped tideway, and down. It was nearly a thou1and feet below that the pilot again gained control of the careering runaway. Hi, head ached sharply, he felt diz:i:y and aick. and the cold numbed hi, whole body, but 1etting hi, teeth, he tilted the lri-plane into the aun, which had paned the zenith, and fought his way back foot by foot.

aa it drew near er he could distinguish the rush of many feel, tearing on through the deserted &treets.

The crazed peasantl',

e

nraged by on e

of their crafty l eaders, were starting on a new crusade of de struction Th e ir unearthly yells of triumph seemed to pierce the heart of the young count, while he list ened to them, rushing hither and thither in uncontrolled fury.

As the de vilish businel!S progressed, the pal e yellow

light, creeping in through the iron bars changed to a sullen glow from many burning homes.

Count Alexia could picture the sc ene as he lis­

tened to the tramping feet and fierc e cries of the excited populace. Why had these ignorant people broken away from the fatherly care of the aristocrat?

And now how te rribly they were treating those

who had cared for them through so many years. Contempt

curled the count's lips while h� muttered

to

himse\i,

··Those stupid, ragg ed, criminal peasants-God will puni11h them." The very a.uuranc e with which he made this statement made him question it.

His first

question came

back to

him and he began to

wonder seriously why th,., people had turned against their ben efactors With this train of thought came the faces of numb erl ess starving peas­ ants, pleading for bread.

How often he had turned from th em indif­

But

somehow in that awe!omc hour of dawn, he saw his past life from a diff erent vi ewpoint.

He hegnn to realize that the ""benefic ent noble s,"

through their heartle ss oppression of the poor, had done them a great injustice.

And th e result of those long years of cruelty had been the

Russian revolution.

If only they had realized the awful consequences

of their deed sooner, Russia might hav e been sav ed! young man that all hope for hi,. nativ e land was gone.

It

seemed to the

But h e came to

understand that othe rs, ar,stocrah like himself, were coming to realize that justice and brotherhood alone wPll make a nation great.

And per­

haps, when the fury of the revolution had spent itself. a new Russia, _.

a land of happy homes, would be born.

And as the cathedral chimes tolled the hour, Count Alexis went to his death with the vision of that wonderful Ruuia leading him on­ ward.

TO THE REST ROOM You hear our deepest secrets, Oh, room of friendship true. You witness our childish quarrels And school girl pranks ever new. You tell not the teachers about us Or sometimes our pranks we might rue. You patiently hear all our crabbings And furnish a wonderful view. Sometimes, in the minds of our teachers We love you a bit too well; Sometimes when a sound sle�p continues We hear not the ring of the b�ll. You're always a haven of refuge When after hard toil in a class We steal from our Study hall often And wait for the period to pass.

STUDY HALL The fan squeaks in the ventilator As I muse upon my Alma Mater, And watch the lazy flies, Who wander all around the place, And wipe their feet upcin your face, And long for open skies. They seem so sad and melancholy, They are not in the least bit jolly, But laden with depression. The atmosphere a power has To kill all hope of joy and jazz, And personal expression. My deserted Francaise craves translation. My ennuied soul craves syncopation. There is no hope of either. I'll just be glad I'm not a fly, Imprisoned here to live and die, With physics, math, and Julius Caesar. -Greenie.

BLUFFING The quality of bluffing is so trained It floweth as a gentle stream from above Down to the sea beneath; it does twice fool, It fooleth him that gives., and him that takes; 'Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes The failing student better than his pen. To study shows the force of temporal power The attribute to law •and learning, Wherein doth sit the pride and power of profs., But bluffing is a quicker power; It is enthroned in the hearts of knaves. Although an attribute even to Seniors. And students' power doth then show likest truth When bluffing seasons knowledge. Therefore, Frash Though knowledge be thy plea, consider this­ That, in the course of learning, none of us Do find perfection: we do bluffing use: But truer knowledge doth leach us better than To use this gift of fools.

CHIVALRY There was sound of revelry by night In C. H. S. for then The frivolous and fair young maids Gave a gladsome dance-sans men ('Twas the Senorita Hop. You all remember when.) Gay laughter sounded thru the hall The music echoed sweet. The plaster cracked and trembled To the tripping of their feet. (Miller w�s the pianist, And his ti� was very neat.) In dark dismalness outside Youths who longed for jazz, Got it, marveling at the stride That Mister Palmer has. ( And wondered �hy they had to get The Royal Raz-ma-taz.) "Spare me, sir," a young youth asked "And listen to my plea, This is the age of culture And in the hall we see Maidens doing work of men. Do you think such things should be}" (And then he hastily got up The nearest lemon tree.) To lead a lady thru a waltz Is a duty masculine And should not be attempted By any Jenny Wren. (We must battle for our rights, So stand together, men.) -''Greenie.'' Page Nll!ely-cighl

Blackwell Smith suggests to the Annual Board that the House Party committee be made from the three boards. A. Hitchcock-It will sure be a block-headed committee, then. The boy stood on the blazing deck The flames reared high and wide "I'm glad I'm not in French," he said, And with a smile he died. Mr. F.-How would you measure the air in this room? Junior-Take a pail and bail it out of the window. May C. (speaking of Senior Play)-And Tad's my best beloved I-Deep silence. Tad's voice from other side of the room-HUH! T. J. Lowry reading in Biology-Sometimes oysters are Aattened. Eddie, in Spanish-Translating-The soldier had a strong physimohagony. Mr. Farrington-Grace, your mind should think along with Rt1th's; you know the caboose always follows along.


"Everyone but you and me is crazy, And I'm not sure abOut you." Translated into F r�nch. ··parbleu!" je cri A vec esprit, "Toul le mood est fol. Vous et moi Ne le sont pas, ( Mais votre tete est mal.)" -Greenie. There's a blond da�el named Abigai!. Whose death we may early bewail; She reads history each day In a studious way, And we se� that it's making her pale. There is a young person named Cath, Who detests both her Latin and Math, Her straight and black hair ls her source of despair, And this poem will fill her with wrath. That studious student named Bell Loves old Vergil both wisely and well, She will spend a half a day with him, But will never romp or play with him, For she respects him far more than she'll tell. Our gallant brave captain, Sir Stanley, Drills his army well and full handily He has no thought of fear When he yells "'To the rear" And he speaks to his privates quite candidly. There is a fair student named Brown, Who's. won herself lasting renown. For wherever one looks He'll find Audrey's books, In and out, upstairs and down. A fair cooking student named Vi, Fed a collie on gooseberry pie. The 5. P. C. A. Came and took it away, For fear the poor puppy might die. Page One llu11dred

There's a right jolly damsel named Frances You'll find her wherever a dance is, She's never alone, (That is, sans chaperon) For she refuses to take any chances. Our able violinist Duvall Harkened to genius' call, She loves her Moszkowski And dear old Tschaikowsky,

But never plays rag-time at all.

CouraÂŁCC'lUS Corporal Elliott Is a soldier bold, His name will be the foremost When the honor rail's unrolled. He right obliques and left obliques And forewards into line And never frets nor fusses When they give us double time. In English our noble friend Art Is glad to live up to his part. He discusses tonal coloration Versus vulgar syncopation, And music table d'hote and a la carte. Lucy Parsons is a musical young thing, She can finger on the Baby Gt.and or Sing, When she pounds the ivory We're as happy as can be Though we love to. hear her gaily chortle-ing, Oh, Peg is a fair and Sweet maid, Her manner is quiet and staid, But if you are one Who is looking for fun, Know Peg, and you'll be well repaid. Our oft absent companion K. J., While dissecting a froggy one day, Shed sad briny tears In the poor creature's ears, And it said, ""'X'.'ill yoll please go away!?" Page 011c H1rndrtd O!lc


The intelligent youthful Miss Jones Reads Shakespeare in melodious tones. Her hearers are charmed; And sometimes alarmed. While they listen entranced to Miss Jones. Windy is quite a peppy young lad, One of the best athletes we've had, He goes walking with ..Force" As a matter of course And his basketball wasil't half bad.

An energetic young hombre is Mickey, He never inhaled a gin-rickty, So his pep is spontaneous And quite unrestraineous, And he likes to be mystic and tricky.

May, whose last name is Case, Wears a radiant smile on her face. Elle est tres petite Fram her head to her feet, For she doesn't fill very much space.

There is a bright sttldent named Homer. Not given to Murads or Omar, His soldierly air Makes his friends all declare In the army he'll soon be a roamer.

There's a staid solemn Senior named Mrntha, Who refuses to do what she orter. She appears on the scene In a new shade of green Every hour or hour and a quarter. 0 Charlotte Force sings in the choir, A position we'd not all desire, But she reaches high C As well as can be, And even can go a bit higher.

Miura, smiling oriental, Has a mind experimental. Tries to parlez-vous Francais In an oriental way With results quite ornamental. l'a_q,: One Hundred Tu:o


A dark�eyed scholar named Miriam Took a walk through a dampish aquarium, And cried, "Look at the feesh ! Oh deah, how I weesh I knew eef thad sweeming did weary 'em." That happy ex�sailor named Frank, Drove his putt�mobile over a bank, And said ..Where I am Doesn't matter a -For I have more than gas in the tank. If you speak of Latin to Harriet, She will say, "Why do schools carry it� It often is said That Latin is dead, They why don't they take it and bury it)" There's a funny lad named Clayton, Who is fond of roller skatin'. When he falls on his ear He murmurs "That's queer, This place is wildly gyratin'." There is a young lady named Kitty. (That will rhyme with both pretty and witty Of course either might fit When applied to our Kit, But they're so commonplace, what a pity.) C. Wyman is sometimes called Shirley, And sometimes arrives at school early. Her radiant smile Will kill at a mile, Or make your head giddy and whirly.

OLD PROVERBS MODERNIZED An equine animal can be condu�ted to H.,O, but it is not possible to coerce him to partake thereof. Do not endeavor to calculate the probable numefical ex­ tent of your infant poultry before the proper period of incu­ bation has elapsed. He who reads and weeps is not necessarily a crap shooter. Large glasses hold small kicks. A canine much given to vociferous vocal expression is not apt to utilize his dental equipment for inRicting personal injury. Subject a ferrus metal to energetic percussion while it still retains a maximum of caloric energy. Regard not the Lucky Strike'while in combustion.

THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM Read, and I will tell to you Something scandalous, wild and true. You'll be shocked, and likewise thrilled. But fear not. then� is no one killed. In C. H. S. ( please mark that well) Long after the detention bell Had clangored thru the many halls. And no footsteps echoed from the walls, In a quiet room apart, A lad was speaking out his heart To a lassie, coy and sweet, Who felt her joy almost complete, And smiled so tenderly there seemed There was no boy she more esteemed. He told how madly she was loved, His words a statue would have moved. The lass no longer held away, He took her hand, she heard him say "I love you I" and she laid her cheek Upon his breast, she could not speak, But offered him her lips to kiss. He bent his head, enwrapped in bliss­ "See here!!'" a voice rang out in frenzy, "Can· t hear a WORD!" yelled Miss McKenzie. Curtain. Page Oir,• J-lr111dr,•d Forrr
