    Jeepers, creepers: The “hyla crucifer” better known, perhaps, as “peeper” began nocturnal concerts April 18, and was in full cry about ten days later.  One pauses to note that according to the authorities the full-sized adult varies in length from one inch to thumb-nail size!  What would their song be like, if they were larger?

    The fragrance of spring: Another school record broken!  A flower in full blossom (the skunk cabbage) was found by a botany walk on March 15.  This is the earliest date on which a flower has been found during the School’s history, and is a sure sign that spring will come a fortnight earlier than usual.

    Frozen feet: The ice in the School Pond this year has averaged about thirty-six inches thick.  Under the S. P. S. rink, which is kept clear of snow, it must have been close to the record thickness of forty-six inches.

    Winter wonderland: One of the most familiar sights of the winter has been the big, four-horse sleigh which has transported the children of the neighborhood to school in Concord…Those whose memories go back to the dark ages of St. Paul’s will be interested to know that the sleigh in question is the famous old “Daniel Webster,” which was used for the Washington’s Birthday expeditions to Canterbury.
