Now is our ship of dreams perfected;
We are launching it on the sea of criticism-
With a cargo worthy of our best selves,
Exhibiting our finest efforts.
May she withstand the gales of censure,

All of these ideas are partially true.

for life.
Even in this day of specializing on one subject,
an educated person should have a general know-

to be able to express his ideas on subjects of the
day without special preparation for each.

But besides all these points the most important

In preparing himself for such a purpose, though

that by going to school one learns, as well as the

These nurses I surely was tickled to see.
Irene said, "Wait, Bill's coming too.
To me she explained, "I mean Dr. Clinchard,
Extracts teeth or fills them for you.
On the ship 'twas a merry reunion we had,
Seemed so good after so many years.
The crowd seemed successful and happy and gay,
In spite of our old doubts and fears.
Our Betty was there, of course, stunningly clad,
An interior decorator was she,
Surrounded by men, as she usually is,
She waved gaily over to me.
A red-head was there, though much lost in thought,

Carlos Pulgar was now a big business man
Who'd made a huge fortune in oil.


And Edna, where is our class president

now?


In social service she spends all hubby's dough
To make poor people hale, strong, and healthy.


Helena?


Oh, really now, haven't

She owns a whole chain of stores,
As a caterer she's in demand everywhere
Her pastry's devoured by scores.
Gay Turner and Mildred then joined the gay


crowd,


Gay's principal of Cristobal High,
While Mildred has charge of the kindergarten,
And tells children what's where and why.
I asked about Zelda, what's she doing now,
Has she honestly become a nun?
They said Zelda was married, we knew she would be,
She too highly valued her fun.

My life is an exciting thing,
Just packed with thrills and sighs,
For every night I live, you see,
Adventures with my eyes.
I go to England, France, and Spain,
To Italy and Rome,


O'er sea and mountains, hills, and
And often stay at home.
Sometimes I am a princess fair
In silks and ermine robe,
And princes come to ask my hand
From all parts of the globe.

trip and he was not sure of another voyage. If
he could find some way out of making the round
trip and get off at Norfolk or New York, where
his ship stopped, he might do that which he al-
ways wanted, become a musician.
The next day he looked for Mr. Wagnal. For-
tunately he found him alone, sitting in a steamer
chair, reading.

Her only son, Dick, was making his first trip
as wireless operator on the steamer Trinidad, and,
to celebrate, his mother had decided to accom-

I waited for a moment, but the bright glare of

so with this murderous fire


pouring in on me, I retreated slowly, though in

Ordway,

is pinned up on one side, and has a black turban

"Goo-goo" was the utterance of this particular
dark individual as he sat on the sidewalk in front
of his mammy's house, basking in the morning
sun. In his hand he had a piece of partially peeled
sugar-cane stalk on which he would chew and suck
at the times when he was not using it to reach
bright-colored bottle tops that had been discarded
by the group of children engaged, nearby, in the
game of bottle-top flip.


The clothing he wore was similar to

He did not seem to mind the tropical heat nor
the dust which was well camouflaged on his black
body.
His crop of kinky, woolly hair would be suitable
to stuff Ostermoor mattresses-providing there
were sufficient.
A pair of slippers was heard behind him, and he
was gently picked up and carried into the house,
with a soft voice saying, "Mammy's little 'Bajan
boy."

-Edna Duoall, '6.


Although I am certain he had never seen me
before, on noticing my attention directed upon
him, he greeted me with a big smile, which revealed
a row of large, even, pearl-white teeth-and went
on fishing.
He was a small negro youth who was fishing
for octopi on the reef. He wore a dilapidated, worn-
out bathing suit which was replete with holes.
He had, on his feet, an old pair of tennis shoes,
which undoubtedly had seen better days, as
every toe was projecting.
However, such a small matter as apparel both-
ered the boy not in the least. When he had skill-
fully caught enough octopi for a meal, I followed
him, through curiosity, and found that he walked
through some of the main thoroughfares of Colon
whistling, but like many of his kind, ever on the
lookout for la policia.


-William Coffey, '26.

GATUN LAKE AT NIGHT.


Once as I was leisurely walking down Colon
Beach, almost lost in my own musings, I was
suddenly startled from my reverie by a little
negro boy who brushed past me at full speed;
on looking back I saw a Colon cop standing on the
corner shaking his club and inveighing and
execrating on the fugitive, whom he seemed to
have despaired of catching. The boy, however,
probably imagining the policeman only a step or
two behind, ran,
"As who pursued with yell and blow,
Still treads the shadow of his foe,
And forward bent his head."
A few seconds sufficed to take him off the hori-
zon, but about five minutes later I came upon him,
surrounded by a group of boys. He was describing
with appropriate gestures his recent escape while,
with open mouths, his hearers gazed on his shining
black face and wide white eyes. There he stood
in his faded blue trousers (which were precariously
held up by two strips of cloth running over his
bare shoulders as a pair of suspenders, setting off
admirably the ebony color of his skin) until, the
tale ended, they all trooped off, laughing and
shouting in high good humor and exultation.


William Clinchard, '26.


On the top of the hill I paused to look back
upon Gatun Lake. At the entrance to the locks
was an ocean steamer waiting for her chance to go
through. Voices of the crew could be heard as they
indulged in their diversions. The red and green
paths made across the water by her port and
starboard lights intermingled with the white


lights of the shore.

Barely discernible above the long, low, gray
breakwater is the horizon with the tall, lean masts
of a ship appearing above it.
To the naked eye the sea is calm and peaceful,
but that this appearance is deceiving is shown
by the breaking, every now and then, of an extra
large swell. Its white spray rises slowly up into the
air on the outside of the breakwater and lust as
slowly settles down on this side.
Inside the breakwater the sea is smooth except
for the ripples blown before a brisk westerly wind.

Irene Hopkins, 'z6.

There he sat with his companions, chatting and
laughing, patiently waiting for the golfers to come
down. He wore a worn-out Boy Scout hat, a faded
blue shirt with one or two buttons, and a pair of
ragged, dirty, short trousers which showed that
they had been patched a good many times. Lazily
he tapped the curb with a bit of a broken golf stick.
He smiled at us and showed a row of white even

In November a conference of the Balboa and
Cristobal girls was held at Balboa. At this time
various kinds of "ships"-worship, friendship, leader-
ship-were discussed, and all of us gained from this
gathering many things which could not have been
learned in school.
During the Easter holidays the Girl Reserves had


a camp at Taboga Island.


Only two girls from the


Supper Club were able to go, but from all reports
those who went had the time of their lives.

Swimming officially started with the

a month and a half Klunk tried to get a
big crowd of swimmers out to practice
but with the possible exception of two
occasions his efforts were in vain. And
on February 20, we crossed to Balboa and
lost the annual swimming meet by the

Coffey and Eggleston easily won from
Butters and Driscoll, 6-4, 6-.
John Ordway, our undisputed Canal
Zone inter-scholastic tennis champ,
stands six feet one in his stocking feet.
He has a remarkable set of services:
slice, reverse twist, cannon-ball, and the
American twist, all of which he craftily
disguises. The American twist, which he
follows up to the net is the basis of his
service. His forehand drive is powerful,
but occasionally erratic. His backhand

friendship was felt by both teams during
the matches. We only hope it will be
like this next year.

met the Balboa


team


on our home floor. In contrast with
that of the former game the spirit was
friendly. There were no hard feelings
and there was no need of exerting self-
control. The game went quickly to the
last quarter. At this time our players
were somewhat upset. A sprained ankle
and several cases of fatigue rather lowered
the spirit. It was a blow to our pride,
but not such a surprise to the spectators


that the final


score


was 13-0


in our


ponent's favor.
April Io. Our team again journeyed
across the Isthmus with high enthusiasm.
As one of our forwards had left the Zone,
a generalmix-up of positions had followed.
The spirit was a fighting one but not
contentious. The final whistle inter-
vened when the score was 2-12 is favor
of Balboa. This game ended the series
of three out of five games, and also ended
the interschool work.
We can not close without a word of
commendation for the Balboa team.
Besides having an exceptionally well-
trained team, they have also strong
material. Their star forward, who has
played for several years, is the best at
her position on the Zone, and will, we feel,
be decidedly missed by her team mates.


Their jumping


center besides being


a very


good player, is one of the champion
swimmers of the Isthmus. Although
some of our girls are quick, the Balboa
team is a little quicker. We all join in
congratulating Balboa on their successful
season and in thanking them for their
splendid cooperation. As a general rule
their spirit is inspiring and eager. People
who have kept account of athletics through
the years have commented on the remark-
able improvement in the inter-school
spirit.


Coconut palms swaying, mystically playing
In the breeze;
Lamplights glittering, little children tittering
With delight;
My jade parrot mocking, the little boat rocking
On the seas;
The big clock's ticking, the horse's hoofs' loud clicking
In the night;
My heart's sincere wishing, the little waves swishing
On the beach;
The busy locust droning, the cold wind moaning


In despair;
The clear church bells ringing, the hazy moon clinging
Beyond reach;
The sound of dry leaves falling, a sweet voice calling
From the stair;
Gentle sounds murmuring, my heart softly whispering,
"You must go."
My thoughts paid no heeding, my dreams withstood pleading;
I said "No."
