OFFICE CAT'S STOCKING Christmas shopping isn't so bad; but trying to find the largest stocking in town for the "Cub" staff is the hardest task I've had this year. I am pondering as to whether I cn.n find one large enough to hold a good looking frame for our charter from the "Quill and Scroll, International Honorary Society for High School Journalists," some artificial "noses for news." an eligibility list of members for the "Quill and Scroll" including all the names of fifth period students in 107, and a pin for each signifying his membership in the society. Although harrassed by worries in an attempt to get out two special holidr editions, the Cub and its staff wish students and faculty a Merry Christmas and a Happy Now Year. Pay Tributes to Memories (Continued from I'nge 10) FRANCES BENOWITZ The sudden death of Francos Benowitz came as a shock to her fellow students, teachers a n d friends. Frances had a beautiful and willing character, always ready to help others. She was known for her sense of humor, always ready for a good laugh. She has left n. vacancy in all her classrooms which will be hard to fill. She was a member of the 1932 all-high school play cast, and took part in various other school activities. We bid farewell to Frances--the members of the sophomore class will miss her--but memories of her will linger. --By SYLVIA COHEN, Sophomore. Members of the faculty who knew Frances Benowitz, as I have for the past one and one-half years, rceognized in her many fine qualities of mind and personality. She was thorough as a student, pleasant to work with as a pupil, and happy in her companionship with her classmates. We shall miss her. HELEN BAILEY, Instructor, Latin and English, M. C. H. S. Alumni Interviewed After H. S. Victory (Continued from I'ase 10) simply. "I wish the team all sorts of success." Paxson' Shaffer, the only player not practicing with some team, remarked with a grin, "It's great stuff if you're in condition." "It's fun to be back," said Joe Fink, the only player attending college out of town. "This year's team showed ability. I hope that they have a successful season." The man who "made" both these teams, "Judge" Grimsley remarked, "Of course I'm glad to have the hoys back. The game came out the way I expected it would." Urged to say more, the coach in him asserted itself and he added, "My big boys will have to speed up." Maurice Zander and Jack Neighbor commented on the varsity. "I thought the varsity's playing was on a par with that of last year's first game," said Maurie, and Jack rcmaked, "the team showed a lot of possibilities." Dexter Smith confessed, "I wish I were back playing for the high school." "Mickey" McDonald expressed the opinion of all the graduate athletes in saying, "it was great to come back and play for the high school."

Christmas Seals First Sold in October, 1903 October, 1003, first saw the dawn of a bright era for tuberculosis victims when Einar Holboell, a Danish postal clerk with 15 other Copenhagen representatives, first practiced the idea of selling Christmas stamps to raise sufficient funds for the erection of a tuberculosis hospital for children. It remained for Hans Christian Andersen's country folk to enlist Santa Claus to champion their cause, and today there is no need to ask anyone to buy stamps. Everyone is more than willing-! The profits of ?18,3GO was most encouraging to the pioneers. America, however, was not to be out-classed by Denmark and four years later Miss Emily P. Bissell launched the first American campaign which netted 53,000 as support of a small tuberculosis hospital. Today the anual nation-wide campaign has familiarized every citizen with the little Christmas seals and 'although the stamp is not good for postage, it is good for ihe man .who buys it and puts it on the letter; for the clerk who cancels it with a glad thought for weak waifs with every whack; for the postman v ho delivers the letter with a smile as broad as Christmas and as good as Christmas itself."

(1080) Hunting big game in Africa with the camera for scientific purposes does not daunt the spirits of the Akcleys, nor do the conditions, bad water, insects and heat. A new conception is gained from this vivid description of life in the jungle kingdom. Robert Peters, sophomore. Young Fu of tho Tipper Yungste Elizabeth Foreman Lewis Winston (1932) Guilds like those of medieval Europe, mercenary bandits, the ancient learning of Confucius versus that of communism form a background for the story of Young Fu. One gets a clear view of modern China and of the thoughts and actions of her people as well as their conception of the foreigner. Margaret Hartigan, sophomore.

' Down this yard runs a wooden walk, neatly free from snow, indicating a tidy housekeeper. A faint sprinkling of snow has fallen since she last swept the walk, but you cannot blame her for that. A stop and go sign is stuck decisively in front of the house, saying "go" very emphatically. This last was absolutely the children's idea, one which they firmly insisted upon. Added Final Touch. Then the children added the final touch. Behold, on the house top stands Santa, about to enter the chimney with his bulging pack, while his reindeer prance lightly on the roof behind him and his sleigh perches nockily on the very leaves. The reindeer, made of heavy brown paper, are supported by wires, and sleigh, made of carboard and painted black, is fastened to the reindeer by glittering harness. The whole scene is spirted, well- conceived, and In the best accord with the Christmas fairy tale. Here's wishing the young artists and architects along with their competent instructor a merry Christmas: R. B.
