I sit upon the old wall by the sea
And count the tiny wavelets near the shore;
er out the larger waves I see;
Continuously toward me their wealth they pour.
They seem like captives longing to be free,
And beat and tear the rocks with sullen roar;
I wonder, as they all roll in toward me,
Where they will go and where they've been before.
At evening still you'll find me sitting there;
The winds have died and distant waves grown calm,
A luring call they seem to bear to me
From far-off lands; they sing to me a psalm
Of dreams; I feel a longing and desire
To travel with the waves until I tire.

They shine like diamonds againstt the sky

And filled with stars which were at first so few,
Whose radiance lights the earth n

Which casts a shadow with its yellow light;
Huge Betelgeuse it doth outshine by far,
And even the Southern Cross, that symbol bright.

a very strange nature.
"Come into my cabin," he said.
I followed him in and took the chair to which he
motioned me. Then I began to relate my experi-
ence with the masked man. I told him that,
although I had promised to be one of this band,
my conscience would not allow me to depart from
the good teachings I had had from my mother and
teachers. I had come to the conclusion that the
best course I could pursue was to inform him of
this attempted piracy. The captain became
interested in the story as I went on, listening with
the greatest attention and anxiety. In a grave
voice, he said, "Emilio, do you mean to say, I
have such rascally cutthroats on board my ship?
I can't believe it; I can't believe it." After
sitting, lost in thought for a few moments,he con-
tinued,"Do you think vou can identify your man?"
"It will be difficult, Captain, for he was
masked, as were the others whom I saw, but I
may venture a guess, as I observed his build and
his hands." That hand had held a revolver to my
face; never would that memory be erased.
"You have nothing to fear. I shall protect you.
We'll soon have these fellows. When I need you,
I shall let you know. Go quietly about your
business in the meantime."
I went back to work with the terrible load lifted
from my conscience, secure in my faith in the
captain. An hour later, as I was leaving the ice
box, whither I had gone on an errand for the chief
steward, I stumbled against the man whom I
believed to be the masked man.
"Look at me," he said. "Do you know me?"
"Yes," I answered.
"Did you get the message?" he whispered.
I nodded my head.
"You are with us?"
Again I nodded.

Raymond was the star for the Cristobal boys,
and he won a place in every event that he entered.
The majority of his places were firsts and he has
set a record to be proud of.
The total number of

of the total number scored by the boys.
Edna Campbell was the girls' star and her name
appeared for a place on the score card in everything
in which she took part.
This is Edna's Freshman

to help us win our future track meets.

Raymond pitched a good game and, helped
by the fine support of the whole team, held Balboa
down to three runs.
One of the main features of
the game was a double play made by Cristobal.
One of the Balboa runners was perched on first and
a hot liner was hit to Doyle at third base. He
fielded it in fine style and shot it to Solomon at
second, who completed the play to Henter putting
the runner out at first.

of the game was made by Solomon, who lined out

As this was the first game of the season there

NOTES FROM A LECTURE GIVEN IN 2021, BY A PROMINENT HISTORIAN.
It has been my privilege recently to take up
some original research work concerning life in the
public schools of the Canal Zone in 1921.
I have found through my investigation that:
The pupils in the school were forced to sit in
straight-backed seats in plain rooms, in strange
contrast to the luxurious upholstered chairs, in
comfortable rooms with frescoed walls and full
length windows, of our school.
The favorite game of the boys seems to have
was far dif-
ferent from the game our boys play under the same
The boys were exceedingly rough in their
game, knocking, shoving,
opponents against the walls,
and holding their
while our boys step
politely aside with an
and let the
other team take the ball.
As for the dress, this was the most astonishing.
The girls arranged their hair in a queer manner,
covering up their dainty ears which nature had
meant to be shown.
To accomplish this, some
even wore on each side contrivances which o16oked
like fuzzy balls glued to their heads.
They had no idea of grace and line and wore
their skirts very short and scant.
They used the
very richest material for their everyday dress.
Although there was not much change in the
boys' dress, some of the boys had come to our
sensible way of wearing loose collars, while others
still adhered to the ancient custom of wearing the
high stiff collar.
