There should have been two paragraphs, but who could separate them even in a paragraph? They are never apart, and what can be said of one is just as true of the other. Louis and Lee are our Training School girls, and many have been the bewildered Senior teachers who have looked apprehensively for two mischievous boys and have found in their places two charming girls.

the voice of the classes, long gone, and now almost forgotten, I the voice of the present, the class that goes out to the morrow, I the voice of the future, whose miriad, unseen faces, Loom like the shadows of treetops, sharp on the shade o'er the window. Hearken, Ye People, and list to the swan-song of those that are going! I

is the song of my going, bright visions of love and of service, Of faith and of conquering power, of footprints to leave by the ocean Of time! Aye, the bright, golden glory of youth as I look o'er the landscape. Scorning the grey and the sodden, eager for golden and crimson, Weighing the choice of each pursuit, catching at glittering baubles, Nor knowing that Fate soon may turn me in irresistible movement; Crushed into dust in a moment lies all of my puff ball of fancy Catching at grey, disillusioned, my grey too, has crumbled to ashes.

the voice of youth, in me is the hope of the nation. the spirit of passion, of frenzy, unreasoning madness. the heart of the planets, eternally new and upspringing. I Calm is my soul and untroubled by dreams of ambition of peoples, Yet I am ever present in the hearts of those who have risen. Higher than stars have I fixed my chosen abode for the ages! I am enduring forever, the music of spheres is my heart-beat. I am the voice of the aeons, the center of rhythmic world-motion. I

Mourn for my going, with ashes, with sackcloth and ashes, 0, mourn me, With beatings of breast and the moanings of hearts that are broken with anguish, I am the golden and crimson that I stretch forth my hand to, unattaining. I am in myself, what I long for, the glorious spirit of youth. I am the voice of the classes, long gone and now almost forgotten I am the voice of the present, the class that goes out to the morrow I am the voice of the future, the mirad unseen faces That press on, innumerable shadows and presage of things that are coming! Hearken, ye people! Give ear to the swan song that tells of my going.

was Saturday morning, hut very unlike most Saturday mornings at Glen View. The halls were alive with girls calling one another to hurry down, for the practice would soon begin. Already there were a great many girls from all classes out on the athletic field, waiting for the word of the physical director, when they would then try out for the several stunts that would take place at the Annual Field Day, which was to be held two weeks later. Up in her room Genevieve Livingston, known by all the girls as Gene, heard the excitement and buzz below, and she smiled as she slipped into her gymnasium suit. She would not hurry down, for she knew that when she did go, all eyes would be turned toward her and greetings would meet her on every Now Gene was not vain, but she was Glen View's star athlete, and she side. knew it, for had she not in the two pears previous broken the high -jumping record, hurdled with the most perfect form, and won for the class the relay race? She was also forward on the Junior team and the best dancer in school.

Gene took a hurried survey of herself in the mirror as she tied her stray straggling locks into her middy tie. "No wonder", she mused, "that the girls are all crazy over Charlotte Crenshaw. She is pretty. And look at my stringy hair, my unaristocratic nose, and my freckles. Why, if I do say it, my brown eyes are the only things Charlotte only entered school this temi and is just a that do me justice. Sophomore, and yet she is one of the leaders, already. But anyway, I don't reckon she will out do me in athletics." And as she ran down the steps she had a mental image of Gene Livingston wearing the big school sweater that was to be given to the girl winning the greatest number of points on Field Day. But as Gene approached the athletic field she became aware that there was already a center of interest. "Good! Good !" came the cries of the girls who were gathered around someone. Gene could not distinguish who it was that was vaulting high into the air. Then came the sharp whistle of the director and the crowd fell apart to reassemble in their class groups. It was then that Gene recognized the central figure to be none other than Charlotte. Throughout the entire practice her eyes followed Charlotte, and she lacked her usual spirit and vivacity. The girls noticed this too, and although her class stuck by her, she could see the admiration for Charlotte growing. That night when "the hunch", gathered in Gene's room for the customary chat, of course Field Day was the topic. "I tell you", cried Mary, "Charlotte is a wonder, and you'll have to work to get ahead of her, Gene." "Yes, yes, that you will," chimed in Bessie and Ruth. "I'll stick by Gene, she's won before and, I know she will again," cried loyal little Nancy. Page One hundred three

Crenshaw. Finally, the day set apart, dawned fair and clear. Banners and pennants were flying and among the shouting, singing, throng of spectators, the contestants came down, but it was with a misgiving heart that Gene came. She wanted to run away at the last minute, but it was in her unwritten creed never Would they never begin ? to go back on anything she had once undertaken. She wanted it over with, for it must come. At last! Through the megaphone comes the announcement of the high jump and the contestants stand in line.

"It is of no use!'', cried Gene to herself in despair. The stunts came and went leaving Gene and Charlotte with an almost even number of points. But Gene did not now care, she had given up hope, and besides, she did not care for victory by a hair's breadth, she wanted it full fledged. The last thing- was the relay race. As Gene stepped dispritedly into place, little Nancy rushed up to her and whispered. "Our class, Gene, has never been defeated. Do your part to help her now.'' Gene could not but do her best for her class. She had never before run The rivalry between the Juniors and Sophomores had as she ran that day. always been intense, and now excitement ran high. Gene was leading, the Junior line, and not four feet behind was Charlotte at the head of the Sophs. "Juniors! Juniors!'", came the shouts from one side. And from the other.

"Sophomores!"

Gene spurred on. She was no longer thinking of herself. "The Juniors must win! The Juniors must win!", kept singing in her ears, until before she knew it, she had passed under the rope, and tumbled into Nancy's arms, with Charlotte two feet behind. "Oh, Gene, you've won the sweater", cried Nancy in glee. "Oh, I don't care a snap about the sweater now," said Gene. "It's the Juniors who have won. Nancy, I've been a big goose all the time not to know that our Camp Fire Law is true when it says, 'Love is service for others so deep that self is forgotten.'
