John Claire Montieth, the dramatic baritone and vocal teacher,. will sing for the High School again in May under the auspices of the Monday Musical Club. So many requests have been made for the songs he sang for us last year that he has decided to repeat one of the songs he sang at that time, using the one for which the most requests are made. So if you would like to have him repeat the song you enjoyed the most, you may write or telephone to him within the next few days and cast your vote for your favorite song. All of the other numbers he will use will be new and he will base his talk on what to listen for when you hear music. His program last year was: "The Lass With the Delicate Air," "Lorraine, Lorree," "Caro Mio Ben" (Old Italian), "The Toreador Song" from the opera Carmen, "Im Kahne," "The Dawn," "On the Road to Mandalay" (words by Kipp ling), and "The Magpie Is a Gypsy Bird."

Our lFrt.sbi.s On Monday morning they arrived. We could see them coming way down the road. There was Wilson Morrill bringing little brother Philip, George Gillard with little Ernest, Madge Anslow with a tiny little girl called Myrtle, Alice Cobb with her sister Edith, "Bill" Fostvedt with his sister Marie, and Cecil Saulcer just pulling his little sister Garnet along. Of course, there were more-a whole lot of them-all Freshmen -baby Freshmen. And they all filed into Room 12 and when Miss Hammerstrom called the roll there were 99. By the time she had answered all their questions, she looked smaller than ever. They were a sight to behold. There was a little boy with a great big voice, his name was Theodore; and two sisters named Helen and Marie, who never left one another; there were two girls with long, long curls and their names were Jean and Myrtle; and one girl who looked very much like the president of our Parent-Teachers' AssociationI think her name was Esther. Oh, there was every kind of a Freshman-there were fat ones, thin ones, red heads, curly heads-and they were all nice-looking; oh, they were more than nice-looking, they were also bright, although very unusual, yet true. For at the end of the first quarter we discovered that Room 12 had 24 A's, 98 B's, 110 C's, 34 D's, and 4 E's. Now, who do you think are the best people in the school? Why, the Freshmen, of course! · 7

S you well know, good children, when they die, go to heaven and become angels. If you think, however, that they have nothing to do but fly around all day long, and play hide-and-seek behind the clouds, you are greatly mistaken. The little angels must attend school the same as the boys and girls who live on the earth. They have to go to the angel school on week days for three hours in the morning, and two in the afternoon. There they write with golden slate-pencils on silver slates, and instead of A-B-C books, they have fairy tales, illustrated with bright, many-colored pictures. They do not study geography, for of what use is the lmowledge of the earth to one who lives in heaven? And no one in all eternity knows anything about the multiplication table. • Doctor Faust is the teacher of the heavenly school. He was a school-teacher when living on the earth, and on account of a certain affair, which has nothing to do with this story, he must still teach school in heaven for 3000 years before his long vacation begins. On Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, the little angels have a half holiday, when, in charge of Doctor Faust, they take a walk on the milky way. Sundays, however, they are allowed to play on the large meadow, before the gate of heaven, and to this pleasure they look forward the entire week. This meadow is not green, but blue, and countless thousands of flowers grow there. These sparkle in the night, and we mortals call them stars. When the cherubs tumble about in front of the gate of heaven, Doctor Faust is not present, as he must recuperate on Sunday from the cares of the previous week. The responsibility of looking after the angels, therefore, is transferred to St. Peter, who keeps the gate of heaven. He sees to it that everything is kept orderly and that no one strays away. Whenever anyone goes a little too far from the gate, St. Peter whistles on his golden key; this means, "Come back!" Once, when it was very hot in heaven, St. Peter went to sleep. When the cherubs saw this, they swarmed out in all directions, and soon were scattered over the entire meadow. 9

The most enterprising, however, on discovery bent, finally came to the place where the world is shut off by a high board fence. They looked around first, to see if there might not be a crack somewhere, through which they could peep. As they could find no break in the fence, however, they fluttered and scrambled up the side of the fence and looked over. There, on the other side was Hades, and before the gate a crowd of young imps were just rambling about. They were coal-black and had horns on their heads and long tails. One of them looked up by chance and then, seeing the cherubs, the imps began to beg fervently to be allowed to spend at least a short time in heaven, saying that they would behave themselves well, and be very good. This moved the hearts of the cherubs to pity, and as the little black fellows pleased them, they thought that this innocent pleasure might be granted them. One of the angels knew where Jacob's ladder stood. This they dragged up, (fortunately St. Peter had not yet awakened), lifted it up over the fence and Jovered it into Hades. Immediately the little tailed fellows scrambled up the rungs of the ladder like monkeys. The cherubs ¡gave them their hands, and thus the imps arrived in heaven. At first they behaved quite properly. They walked along with all due modesty, carrying their tails on their arms like trains, as the devil's grandmother, who was very particular about etiquette, had taught them. This, however, did not last Jong; they became ungovernable, tumbled about, turned handsprings and somersaults, and screamed at the same time, acting like real little devils. They teased the inoffensive moon, that looked out a window of heaven with a friendly gleam, stuck their tongues out and made faces at it, and finally began to pull up the flowers that grew in the meadow and to throw them down upon the earth. The cherubs had now become frightened and they repented bitterly that they had allowed the undesirable guests to enter heaven. They begged and they threatened, but the imps cared for nothing and grew wilder and wilder. The cherubs, in their anxiety, woke St. Peter and repentantly confessed what they had done. When St. Peter saw what the imps were doing, he clapped his hands over his head. "Go in there!" he thundered, and the cherubs, with drooping wings, slunk through the gate of heaven. Then St. Peter called several strong-armed angels to him. These gathered the little imps together and put them back where they belonged. But the cherubs "got what was coming to them.'' For three Sundays in succession they were not allowed to go out 10

Some good, however, has come of the affair. The flowers that the imps tore up and threw upon the earth took root and multiplied from year to year. Of course the star-flower lost much of its celestial beauty, but it is still lovely to look upon, with its golden-yellow center and silvery rays. And because it is of celestial origin, it has a very extraodinary power. When a girl with doubt in her heart plucks off the white petals of the daisy one by one, she surely learns, when she comes to the last petal, what she wishes to know, if she whispers at the same time the well-known rhyme: Er liebt mich, Von Herzen, Mit Schmerzen, U eber alien Maszen Fast garnicht.

(R:bt Jpplts of Jlbun (A Scandinavian Legend translated by Amanda Holversen.) HE great gods who ruled the world se)dom s::t upon their thrones, but rather occupied their time in combating among themselves and making journeys which mortals would think were even beyond the gods. Odin, the ruler of all of the gods, and Loke, the god of evil, once started upon one of these journeys, for they had a great many things to look after. These strong active spirits loved nothing more than hard work and hard struggle, so they traveled hard and fast. This time their journey led them over high snow-capped mountains and valleys where the sun rarely looked. ~he sun was sinking low, and as they had traveled a great distance they began to feel the pangs of hunger. . The gods sent their searching eyes over the plams and spied a herd of cattle. They easily killed one of them and now a huge pot was put over the roaring- fire, but alas-the pot would not boil. All of their good humor vanis~ed. As they were discussing their hard luck, they heard a voice fro~ an oak tree above them, which said: "I will make the pot boil if you will give me my fill when the meat is ready." . The gods looked first at ea~h other and then mto the tree, and there they discovered a great eagle. They were glad enough to get their supper on almost any terms, so they told the eagle he might have what he wanted if h~ would only o-et the meat cooked. The bird was as good as his word, and Jn less time than it takes to tell it, supper was ready. When the eagle took his portion, Loke, who was always angry when anybody got more than he, took a gre:it pole a_nd struck the bird unmercifully. Then an extraordmary thmg happened, as extraordinary things always used to happen when the gods were concerned. The pole stuck fast in the huge talons of the eagle at one end and Loke stuck fast at the other. The e::gle then flew away over the tree-tops and dashed Loke agamst rocks and branches until he was bruised half to death. When Loke begged for mercy, he found out that the eagle was by no means an ordinary bird. The eagle was _no other than the great giant, Thjasse, and he would r:ot g1".e Loke freedom until Thjasse had promised to give him the apples of Idun. These apples were owned by a goddess and were given to the gods to keep them forever. :v:oung and beautiful. Loke hesitated awhile before prom1smg to get the 12

~~,; \:::::::._:::_ i'He1Pos"t~!:~o~ apples, for if he secured them he would rob the gods of their 1mmortahty. He started however, but how was it to be done? No one ever touched these apples except Idun herself and she guarded them very closely. Not long after all this happened, Loke came carelessly up to Idun as she was gathering her apples. He bade her "g_ood morning" and exclaimed how fair her apples were. She said that the bloom of youth always kept them beautiful. "~ never S";W anything like .them until the other day," he contmued, as if he were speakmg of a matter of no importance. She asked where he had seen anything like them. . "Oh, just outside the gates," he said indifferently. "It ;y1ll take you but a moment to see them as the tree is only a little way off. Better take your apples with you to compare them with the others." . Idun gathered up the golden apples and went out, carrying with her all that made the home of the gods heaven. No sooner was she beyond the gates than a mighty sound was he~rd, and the giant Thjasse, in his eagle plumage, bore her swiftly away to his desolate, icy home in Thrymheim where he kept her a lonely prisoner. ' Loke went back to Asgard ,the home of the gods. When the gods assembled the next morning for their feast of apples there was no Idun there nor for many days to follow. Litt!~ by little the light of beauty and youth faded from the homes o!'. the gods, and they themselves became old and haggard. Iâ&#x20AC;˘ mally the gods could bear the loss of power and joy no longer and they made an inquiry. The mystery was traced to ~oke and as he saw their haggard faces and the deadly hate wInch flamed in their hearts, his courage failed and he promiHcd to bring Idun back.

(Translated by Anna Karagozian.)


NCE there was a king who had three homely daughters. Therefore, it was a hard task for him to find a husband for each of them, when their time had come to be married. Finally, however, the eldest princess married a prince, for it was the custom in those days that princes should marry princesses. '11le second girl 1narried a "nakarar" or governor of a province in another land. The youngest princess, who had the most unpleasant countenance of the three, married the janitor of a public bathhouse. Because of this, her father and two sisters felt very angry. They did not communicate with her for some time, because she had lowered her caste. She lived happy and continued in her neat little cottage by the bathhouse in which her kind husband labored faithfully. Soon after she was to become a mother. Being so poor, they did not have anything in which to bathe the little <ine. Her husband thought that the bathhouse would be the most suitable place for the purpose. Upon returning home, they could wrap the baby in a cloth or shawl. So, leaning on her good husband's arm, she walked slowly to the bathhouse by the sea. When they reached there, she entered alone. Shortly after she had entered the vast, warm 1·oom, a lovely baby girl was born. All of a sudden three fairies appeared. One of them said: "Let each one of us make a wish for this beautiful child." 'l'o this they all agreed. The first fairy said: "Everywhere ,,he steps, roses shall grow in abundance." The second fairy Haid: "At every word she utters, gold shall drop out of her mouth." Lastly, the third said: "And every time she weeps her tears shall be transformed into pearls." After thanking the fairies for their kindness, the happy mother took the child out and presented it to her husband. On their way home she told him of the strange happenings. He was very glad also. They named the baby Zabel, after her father's mother. While they were discussing this matter, the baby began to ('.l'y. A shower of pearls came down from her eyes upon the l'loor.

The prince arrived with his band and troop of officers to lead his bride to his p11lace. That same day Zabel's aunt, at whose house she had 1d:lended the wedding, came and told her to take the last 11 JL'Hl'k/' or carriage, in the row, because she was going to sit t.lwl'o with her daughter (that one who changed grass into Mt.011c as she stepped on it), and she wanted Zabel to sit with t.IH1111. Zabel politely acceded to her request. When the time came to depart, she cried and kissed her d<•n1· mother and father goodbye, for they were not allowed to M'o w.ith her. There were a great many carriages with three people siti.111"· in each one. The prince Jed the procession. He was not nllowod to sit with his bride nor even see her unveiled face. Whon they were in the midst of field and forest, a terrible 111IMl'111'tune happened to Zabel. The aunt made her daughter 1•l11Hc• :.label's mouth with a handkerchief, so she could not M<'l'"lllll, while she tore out her sparkling eyes. Then she made 1/,1111"1 wtmr her daughter's clothes, and threw the poor girl out ol' tlw carriage. The band was making so much noise that i1111l111l'H cl'ies could not be heard. Their purpose in taking out lilll' .,,YtlH was to make certain that she could go nowhere, nor "''" n11,vone to speak to about herself. Whnn they arrived at the palace, the false bride was taken tl11w11 l'rom the "gark." The green grass upon which she NiPpJ1c1cl turned into pebbles immediately. When she spoke llNht•M nnd cinders fell out of her mouth. Being worried 11ho11t. what was going to happen, she began to weep and hhll'll w11t01· came pouring out of her eyes. 17

HO does riot know that Hood was once an active volcano? Who has not heard of the bridge of the gods? Who is not acquainted with the names Umatilla, Multnomah, Willamette, or Molalla? All these are memories, relics of the days when the red men lived in Oregon. 'l'he Pacific coast Indians, unlike the Eastern, worshipped 110 good god such as the Great Spirit, but they feared some 1·111i11g evil deity. Tatoosh, the Thunder Bird, was generally i.111• most dreaded god. But, along the Columbia River, Tylee H11hnle, and in California, Old Man Above, were given pre<•111incnce. The wrath of these gods the Indian must always t.1·.v t.o appease unless he could outwit the gods by cunning. 'l'ilo Hl.v coyote was also a chief god with the indians, and the l'ox rnnked next to him. There were also numerous other 111iln1nl gods. Around these different deities sprang up many lc•v;<'IHIP.. "Coyote said, 'I want it to be foggy.' So it was l'oMKV. 'l'hen all the people came out. Coyote said, 'I want the M1111 l.o shine.' So the sun shone, and the fog drifted away. 'l'IH'l1 I.he people were there. No one saw them come out. /\M <'o.votc commanded t4e sun and the fog, so he befriended 1.111• I11dians by securing fire for him.

(!be llliser of (lnltbomn (A Legend of the Cowlitz Indians, Arranged by Scanland Collins)

IKE the ancient Greeks, the Indians of the Northwest invested the unseen world with spiritual intelligence. Every tree had a soul and every mountain and ravine was the abode of good and evil genii. The Indian was confronted on every side by the work of some unseen omnipotent being against whom he was as powerless as was the "fly bug" beneath his own heel. Every unaccountable phenomenon of nature was woven into weird and fantastic tales in an attempt to account for, and explain its cause. Across these fantastic reports of older times there come echoes of a later instruction, adapted and blended into native legend so that the point of division cannot be indicated. Such is that of Miser of Takhoma. Miser lived at the foot of Takhoma, "The White Mountain." When food was scarce and the tribes around were starving Miser could find fish in secret str;eams and knew the hiding places of the black-necked elk in the dark forests. His skill as a hunter and fisherman was known to many tribes. But Miser was unhappy. All he cared for was hiaqua (money). One night Moosmoos, the elk, whispered to Miser the secret hiding place of the tiaqua of the tomanowos (spirits), which was high up on "The White Mountain." The next morning Miser rose early and made ready for the search. He sent his klootchman to dig camas roots so that he could work in secret. He made two elkhorn picks by taking off all the prongs except the upper ones. He filled his ikta with kinnikinnick and dried salmon, and at sunset began to climb Takhoma. *"All night he climbed the trail. All the next day he climbed. By night again he was above the snow line, cold and tired and hungry. When the moon rose he climbed again. Over vast snow fields, across wide cracks in the ice, over the slippery shoulders of the lower peaks he climbed. At sunrise he reached the top. Now Takhoma was the home of the tomanowas, therefore Miser was afraid. But Moosmoos had told him where the hiaqua was hidden. "In the white snow field which covered the crater was a black lake. Beyond it were three stones of equal height, all as tall as a giant. The tOp of the first was shaped like a salmon's head. The top of the second was like a camas root, and the third, like an elk's head. Then Miser believed the voice of Moosmoos.

enass the storm god, came down upon the mountain. Tootah, the thunder deafened him with its roar. The storm crashed about him. 'Fiery blasts melted the snow into great torrents. Icy winds froze them solid again. In the roar and thunder, Miser heard the voice of Kakahete, hyas tomanowos. Heard also the voices of all the tomanowos, 'Ha, ha, hiaqua. Ha, ha, hiaqua.' "Miser threw away a string of hiaqua. The storm slackened for a moment. Then all began again, louder than ever. Kekahete screamed, 'Ha, ha, hiaqua. Ha, ha, _hiaqua.' . "One by one, Miser threw away the strmgs of h1aqua, strung on the sinews of Moosmoos, the elk. Always. the tomanowos screamed after him. Then when the last strmg was gone, with a last gust the storm blew him down, flat upon the ground. kh l' "Miser slept a long time.

He ate berrie3 for food until he came to a cabin in the valley. There lived a v~ry old woman. He talked with her and found she was his klootchman. Klootchman said he had slept thirty sriow~. Miser looked. at himself in a pool. He was very old. His hair wa;s white. Many, many snows had the angry tomanowos ma;de h1i;: sleep. But Miser was happy. He no longer cared for hiaqua. *From Katherine B. Judson's translation of the Indian dialect. 11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111

Ulfmaloon Yislt Oh! the isle is a beautiful isle, Mysterious Memaloose Isle; 'Tis set in the current swift, of a stream, To baffle the waves, all the while. 'Tis heavily girdled with ancient old trees. That wave their white arms at the mght; And they moan, aye, and creak With a haircraising shriek That turns the deep waters to white. 22

And they all shine bright, in the cold moonlight, And the air is as still as can be, As the Demons sweep . From the monument steep To the white bones down by the sea. Long years ago, 'ere the white men came, There, the Indians buried their dead, And all that is left of the sad ones Of the sad ones bereft, Are the bones and the skeleton head. Aye, the Red Man put off from his own home-land, With his dead in a hideous canoe, i\ nd he dug in the land, In the rattling sand, To bury his dead-it is true. But why did he come to the old haunted isle, Where Things are said to abound; Where the blood-curdling groans i\ nd the whispering tones Hold the country for miles around?

«lbt 1lirst illlttping UUillo\\l OOOWHEEE-E, OoooWheee-e. What a weird mournful sigh th.e old tree gave-OoooWheee-e -and tossed its mighty branches in the twilight air. This tree, relic of preceding generations, stood high on the bank of a rocky cliff. The river foamed and tumbled at its foot, and the clouds wound in and out among its aerial arms. Twisting its knotted trunk and muttering so forbiddingly to itself-was it any wonder man and beast alike held it in fear? .. "Why," it said, "I have gold; yea, and ·many diamonds and precious stones hidden deep down among my roots. What need have I to be sad? OoooWheee-e !" "You have plenty of need to be sad," .returned a soft, sweet voice. Then, without pausing, continued: "I am the first twilight shadbw of the evening to bid you welcome, and here you stand grumbling to yourself. Cheer up, King Tree. I want to play among your leaves. Maybe tonight I can climb way up to your topmost branch." "Play among my leaves, nothing! You shall do no such thing! How dare you bid me speak to you? Get away! Full sad and sorry was the little shadow, for she loved the old tree and well she knew what would happen to it if it acted so. Thus with dew tears in her eyes she crept up, up, till she nestled in the kindly arms of Princess Moonbeam. When the Princess heard her story, her face also grew sad, as she said: "The time is come and the king of trees must be given its fate." At this time the old tree was tossing its boughs and thinking of its greatness, when, lo, the world in all places grew dark. No sooner was it darkened, than from the moon, down a wide, white stairway, came the princess and behind her came all the moonbeams of the world, and then the stars. One by one, in silence, they dropped upon the tree their golden carts. Then one by one the king's great arms drooped. All the time it was twisting and weeping with grief, till at last not an upright bough was left. Full well the tree knew that its pride had caused its fall. Then, slowly, the silent crowd turned and walked away, and rosy dawn woke over the hill. In the morning light man discovered a new and wondrous tree. The king tree was no longer a king, but with all its branches drooped o'er the ground and weeping tears of pear, it stood, the first Weeping C. C. Willow of the world.

EXT to Anderson's Fairy Tales, the stories of Wilhelm and Jakob Grimm are loved in all h.ouseholds. Their stories are told in plain, simple language and yet are full of interest. The "Town Musicians, Hans and Gretel " .d and many others, will always be dear to the h c 11 ren of every country. Jakob !cudwig Grimm was born in 1785, January 4; his l>rother Wilhelm Karl in 1786, February 24. They were, after the death of their fathe_r, through the kindness. of an aunt, prepared for the umvers1ty. At the University of Marbourg ther came under the influence of Savigny. He stimulated their l".ve for learnmg and of books. One winter when he was d".mg some special work in Paris, he sent fo~ Jakob to help him. Wh.en Jakob .returned at the end of the year, he was employed m the office of the Minister of War at Cassel and afterward became li.brarian ~o the king of Westphalia (.ye~ome Bonaparte). This gave him a fine salary and plenty oL time to study, as no one but the king was allowed the use

Yltblttics BASKETBALL Franklin vs. Oregon City On Friday night, March 3, Franklin's basketball squad played the Oregon City quintet at Oregon City. The game was a poor exhibition and ended Franklin 13, Oregon City 40. Franklin vs. Newberg Saturday night, March 4, Franklin's basketball team was defeated by the Newberg five to the tune of 30 to 13. Franklin 2nd vs. Jefferson 2nd Monday afternoon, March 6, Fr1tnklin's second team won a victory over Jefferson's second team in the Franklin gymnasium. The game ended, Franklin 29, Jefferson 26. First Team vs. Faculty Friday afternoon, March 10, the first team bumped the faculty in a rough and tumble basketball game to the tune of 23 to 21. Dewey starred for the faculty, while Davis' work was a feature for the first team. Columbia vs. Franklin Franklin's basketball team played its last league game, and last game of the season, on Tuesday, March 7, in the Portland Academy gymnasium. The game was played versus Columbia University. In this game our quintet suffered the worst defeat of the season. By winning this game Columbia jumped to a tie for first honors with Washington. The game started promptly at 3 o'clock and the collegians captured the lead at the start and held it to the last whistle. The first period ended 32 to 9, with Columbia on the long end. The second half was a repetition of the first and the game ended Columbia 61, Franklin 13. In spite of the lopsided score, the game was at times very interesting. A feature of the game was the showing made by Mike Bloch. Following is the lineup of the teams: 27

Although our basketball team this year did not lead the league, we were not quite the tail-enders. Our coach, George Dewey, deserves much credit, but a hoodoo seemed to follow the team, as Barbur and Post were out of the game most of the season. We expect to have a much better team next year, as all of the men will still be in school. SOCCER

Soccer for this season is also a thing of the past. This year very little interest was taken in soccer, but the way our team got out and fought makes us sure that next year they will have the support of the whole school. BASEBALL

Baseball is coming full-blast at Franklin, and under the supervision of Coach White our team is rapidly rounding into shape. There has constantly been a large squad out for practice and Mr. White wants, and expects, more. The pitching staff this year is the strongest we have ever had. Your Student body ticket admits you free to all interscholastic games, and we urge everybody to come out and root. Two practice games have been played this season, and won. Franklin vs. Christian Brothers Friday afternoon, March 1, Franklin played her first baseball game of the season. The game was played at the new grounds, 52d and Division streets, versus Christian Brothers' Business College. The game was fairly well played, and ended in a 10-to-2 victory for Franklin.

TRACK The track squad, under Coach Dewey, is not yet in shape. Practice has only just started, but so far there has been some fairly promising material out. Mr. Dewey wants every boy, who is not going out for baseball, and can, to come out for track. NOTICE Everybody pay your association dues and receive an F. H. S. A. pin and a ticket to all interscholastic baseball games. THE ESCAPE Confusion! Somethings happened! Something's wrong! What's amidst that raptrous throng? Why they yell so, why they cheer? And rush hither, far and near? Chairs upturned and hairpins lost, Heads are bumped and courses crost; A young woman, frightened, stands On a chair and wrings her hands; Another prances on the floor, Then, with a shriek, flies to the door; A maiden brave-all suddenly, Falls on the floor, right close to me, And comes up with her hand clutched tightAnd holds a waving tail in sight; The teacher takes the waving tail And puts it in a tight-closed pail; Now, what do you think 'twas all about? Why, Mr. Hoskins' rat got out! Constance Cole.

Franklin vs. Milwaukie Tuesday afternoon, April 4, Franklin's baseball nine met the Milwaukie High School team at Milwaukie. The game was rather one-sided, the score being Franklin 25, Milwaukie 3. A return match was arranged for the near future. 28
