.John Harry Silkes, a graduate of G.
H. S. in ’23, is one of the reporters
assigned to the Snyder-Gray murder
trial, now under way in New York. He
is a reporter for the Flushing Journal,
where he was employed shortly after
going to New York several weeks ago.
Miss Tillett Committee Member
Miss Laura Tillett, head of the Eng
lish department of G. H. S., has been
made a member of the committee on
constitutions of the advisers’ division
at the Columbia University Intersco-
lastic Press Association. The meeting
is to be held May 7 in New York City.
Miss Tillett is unable to attend.
Now, “Speaking of Operations,”
that’s a good book; you should read
it sometime, but that hasn't a thing to
do with the faults I find in G. H. S.
Of course, it ain’t my place to go
around picking jmur alma mater to
pieces, but it’s my alma mater, too, so
I’m just picking my part to pieces.
First, there ain’t no consideration
in the faculties’ hearts for the student.
They ring the old bell every fifteen min
utes and a feller is no more than well
asleep before it ding-dongs right into
his dreams—at the place he’s just hav
ing a swell feed, or if he’s built that
romantic way, he’s just about to kiss
the princess of Bozywooka, whose ol’
man is about to kick out and leave her
the whole Kingdom. It is useless, of
course, to say that she is beautiful, this
being a fictitious bit of nonsense. Her
brothers, the Duck of Zookabooka—but
that is only a busted dream; why dis’-
cuss it further? Drat that bell!
And, too, nobody can be sure he ain’t
goin' to get caught goin’ up town to
dinner any more. Somebody’s always
takin’ my appetite away by sayin’, just
as I enter Mikes’ Weenie Stand,
“There’s Mr. Phillips’ Ford.” My heart’s
givin’ out on me, too, because every
time I get behind the hand-ball court
to take a drag of a weed, somebody
says something about what the Stu
dent Council did for so-and-so for doing
the same thing.
The teachers ain’t human no more,
either; they give us lessons over the
week-end and actually expect us to get
them up. What, I ast you, is the world
coming to? The other day one of my
teachers got real mad when I got in
a fight on class. She was a new teach-
