It has been our aim to display through these pages the true spirit and tone of our High School, to picture nothing that is unreal, but to give the plain portrayal of our High School through the eyes of the student. We have made no attempt at the star-tling or artificial, for it seems to us this would not be in keeping with the purpose of this book. To our fellow- students, to our teachers, and to our many friends we present this our Cn Yor Hi of Nineteen Hundred Fifteen.

MERCER EDITORIAL ln our opinion a beautiful and artistic Annual is the crowning achievement of a class of High School students. If properly prepared and arranged it is a treasure to every graduate as the product of his class. Realizing these things the members of our class have always been unanimous in their desire for an Annual. Early in our Senior Year we began to plan for the Book: being inexperienced hands we made little progress, and at times our cause seemed hopeless. After much vain struggling, gaining a dollar at a time, we at last gained a foothold, and now present to you the fruit of our efforts. The Annual Board extends their heartfelt thanks to those who, by their help and suggestions have helped to make this book possible. We are especially grateful to Brice V. Mann who, sacrificing his own time and energy, has drawn the fine cartoons which appear in this book. The Annual Board has pu-t forth their utmost efforts to make this book all that an Annual should be. Being of only mediocre ability it is prob- able that many imperfections have crept into our work. But we ask that our readers be lenient in their judgment, bearing in mind that it has been in the face of -the greatest difficulties that this book has been produced. Little did we realize as we congregated twice a day in the senior room that the day would come so soon when we would cease to he members of the Ada High School, and would pass from under its roof forever as high school pupils. It did not occur to us during those happy days that we were so rapidly approaching the end of our High School career, that only a few more days and we would he launched out on the billow-tossed sea of life, where merriment and the joys of youth would he forgotten in facing the stern problems of our existence, that the time was so near at hand when youthful hopes and tendencies would be laid aside and life would be- come a stern reality. It is to he hoped that each one has real- ized the rapid approach of the end of his High School career, and has applied himself diligently to the tasks assigned him. 0 lil.

Superintendent of Schools, Ada, Ohio American History and Civics The Seniors will long rememl'er Mr. Stage as their in- structor of American History. He will he particularly re- membered for several things, namely, his apparent slowness to see his own joke, his inability -to call the students by their prop- er names, his diminutive chin, and his exquisite grace of motion. Mr. Stage is kind, frank, generous and exceedingly earnest, and as an interesting and instructive teacher he is scarcely to he surpassed. It has been a source of both pleasure and profit to the Seniors -to have come under his influence. MARY HICKERNELL, A.B. Latin Mrs. Hiclrernell came to us in our Junior year. With her we visited the Roman forum and listened to those mighty orations of Cicero. Then in our Senor year, we traveled with her from Troy to Sicily and Carthage and thence to Latium over the same route taken by Aeneas a short time pre- vious. Mrs. Hickernell is loved and admired by everyone in High School. Her sweet, gentle dis- position has been an inspiration to all her pupils. 1 H. T. O. BLUE, A.B. History We thought no good could come out of Kenton, but she has furnished us with a principal who has now guided our good Ship of State fl-ligh Schooll through two voyages on the Sea of Education with a masterly hand. He seems to have an inlinite capacity for work and is the personiftcation of Patience. Mr. Blue never attempted to drive, but always endeavored to lead. He is frank, consid- erate and exceedingly fair. Mr. Blue has the highest respect and good wishes of every Senior. 9 RUTH SOUDER, AB. English One of the most pleasing sights for the Seniors this year has been the exceedingly tall and familiar Hgure of Miss Souder Heating about the Senior room, or seated at the little table whispering con- fidentially to Mr. Elliott. Her love for .fun and sunny disposition has won her'many friends in High School. Miss Souder is something less than seven feet tall and exceedingly slender-but cheer up, Miss Souder, for 'ieven a hair may cast its shadow." , Howann D. HARVEY Mathematics This is Mr. Harvey's lirst year in A. H. S. and only a few of the Seniors have been in his classes. However, as he was on the morning relief as senti- nel in the Senior Room his shining countenance is familiar to all of us. We will especially remem- ber Mr. Harvey for his beautiful bushy hair. Mr. Harvey is a well-informed and well-educated teacher in every sense 'of the word, and is held in the highest respect by every Senior. FLOYD M. E1.1.1o1'r, B.Sc., Pl1.B. K Science Mr. Elliott has been closely associated with the Seniors this year, which we think has been to his sorrow. It is true, there was a little tilt occa- sionally but Mr. Elliott was so good natured and considerate that we all admired and respected him. Some of the Seniors may thinlc they are lady- fussers but hats off to Elliott. Mr. Elliott is both a refined gentleman and a scholar and his position on the teaching force has been a credit to A. H. S. 10 ALBERT F. DARtsY,i B.S., A.B. Mathematics and Economics Mr. Darby is completing a course in Law at the University, and has not been regularly em- ployed as an instructor. He has imprinted indeli- bly on the minds of the Seniors the fundamental laws and facts of Economics. His profound ex- pounding of the law has been a source of the greatest benefit to all his pupils. One Senior has said that it is worth being in Mr. Darby's class just to see him smile. DAY 4q'Mr WON LLEC ff' ,ff 11 GOVERNOR FRANK B. WILLIS The people of Ada are proud that their town is the home of the man who occupies the Governor's chair, and as a High School we are proud of our village, and proud of our fellow- citizen who has had the highest honor in the state conferred upon him. Mr. Willis is a gentleman of fine education, agreeable temperament, untiring industry, and noble character, and his example and influence should inspire us and spur us on to greater and nobler things. STATE OF OHIO EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT COLUMBUS V March I6, l9l5. To the Senior Class of the Ada High School :- You ask me to say a word to my good young friends who graduate this year and it is a pleasure to respond. Commencement period is one of the happy events of a lifetime and while I should prefer to add to the pleasure of the occasion rather than to add to its serious- ness with counsel, yet there is much that may he said along this line. Education and mental equipment are not the only requisites of success. More essential than either is application. Success comes only through earnest endeavor. Following the line of the least resistance will result in small reward, while persistence and tireless effort coupled with initia- tive and self reliance will inevitably bring triumph. Be good natured and congenial. Do your work with a will. Another great factor is friendship. Choose friends who will be of help, but bear in mind that friendships must be mutual. To have good friends you must he a friend. Have confidence in your friends and win their confidence in you. You have the power but not the right to break down confidence your friends place in you. E Patience is a virtue to be achieved. Do not expect all things to come your way at once. Keep on striving and never lose hope. Look back over your past. Recall the great number of things over which you worried that never occurred at all. Keep clean, mentally and otherwise, keep busy, keep posted, keep good company and keep faith. Keep close to the teachings of your childhood days. Some one has said "that he who keeps on good terms with himself and his God is safe." Very truly your friend, GOVERNOR FRANK B. WiLLis Wm Www Www 73f'3Hf'1fULf M ,MMM g WWMQVW , fffww ' I Nw mb JJJWJ, 2-f,E.J'i'. Qwwwmwuww, Q14 M747 L I ,, 14 Vffmiyc Maw 021444, 0ZJdZo-vim. QMMLC Qwzwzmffgwwa ' 5l3afmfaZ,-HM4, Q 4 4 I FRANK EUGENE MERCER Ada Grammar School, l9l Ig I. C. C., I9I3-I4g Class Treasurer, I9l3-14, Class President, l9l4-l5. Here is a very rare combination of class pres- ident, lady fusser, store clerk, acrobat, comedian, and what not. Blessed with an abundance of mother wit at his very linger tips, he never wants for anything to say. He has been known to talk for many minutes without saying a word. The senior class could not well have done without him as their president as he seems to possess an inexhaustible supply of push and energy. GERTRUDE CLEONE MERTZ Ada Grammar School, 1911: I. C. C., 19125 Class Secretary, I9l I-125 l9l4-l5. Here is the short of it. The fact that Ger- trude is very short doesn't prevent her from mak- ing herself heard and expressing 'her candid opinion on any matter of great or small conse- quence. The number of Gertrude's beaux is seventy times seven, but like the summer rose they came and went. Her ever present smile and sunny disposition has made her indispensable to the class of 'l5. 16 JEDD J. CORBETT Ada I9I2-I3-l4p Basket Ball, l9l3-I4-l5. ' Behold the radiant countenance of our Busi- ness Manager. For three consecutive years 'he has been the invincible center on our football team. On one occasion, to test his hardiness, Pudd Clum ran his auto into a hitching post and unceremoniously threw ,ledd over into the graveyard, but even this failed to undo him. Jedd is one of the several comedians for which our class is noted and his antics would do jus- tice to any stage performer. Grammar School, l9l lg Football, WALTER V. AGIN Boxwell Graduate, l9l0g New Stark High School, I9lZg I. C. C., l9I4g Football Man- ager, l9I4g Editor-in-Chief, Cn Yor Hi. Keep your seats, ladies and gentlemen, for it is no one but our Editor-in-chief. Since Agin came into our midst he has learned many things to his own sorrow but to other people's evident enjoyment. During football season he became familiarly known as "Manager Aginf' In this capacity he succeeded in losing all the balls and bawling things up in general. He is also noted for his extreme bashfulness, and his very serious tum of mind. MARY BLOSSER Boxwell Graduate, I9I0g New Stark High School, l9l3. Mary is quiet and unassuming, yet a friend of all. Mary is not only educated in books, but in travel, as she left High School one year and traveled extensively through the West. "Her een sae bright, 'her brow sae white, Her temple locks as brown's a berry, And aye they dimpl't wi' a smile, The rosy cheeks o' bonny Mary." 17 F RANK CUSSANS State Normal School, South Dakota, l9l l- I2g Co. G, O. N. G4 Class President, l9l2- 13g Class Treasurer, l9l4-l5. "And still we gazed and still the wonder grew that one small head could carry all he knew." "Cuzzie" does more work in one day than the ordinary person does in three. He is sim- ply bubbling over with life and ambition and he seems to radiate that magnetic energy wherever he goes. He has certainly been the shining iight of our class and if dogged ,determination will count for anything we are safe in predict- ing for Frank a brilliant future. 7-f K get MARY OLIVE WELLS Ada Grammar School, I9l lg Class Secre- tary, l9l3-l4. Mary is another of our number who is espe- cially noted for her diminutive stature. But when we reflect that "it is the little things in this world that count," we feel sure that Mary has a life of useful service before her, if noth- ing more than to cheer and brighten the life of some lonely old bachelor. And we truly believe that if Providence pointed out such a course for "Wells" she would not shrink from her duty. RALPH B. NEISWANDER Boxwell Graduate, 191 l 5 New Stark High School, l9l 3. Here modesty reigns supreme. Ralph is one of those quiet unassuming persons who can ever greet You with a smile. If every one attended as strictly to their own business as does our friend Ralph, what a grand place this old world would be. He doesn't seem to be bothered by that subject which is of such vital concern to most High School boys: namely, that of "Girls" "ln this small body is lodged a mighty mind." 18 ROSA MARGUERITE BETZEL Boxwell Graduate, l9l2. Rosa came to us in our Senior year, so we are ignorant as to her past history, but judging from the present it must have been of the best. Rosa talks little, thinks much and appreciates a quiet good time, but we have never known her to engage in unseemly mirth. We have heard it whispered that she aspires to become the wife of a great college professor, but we can not vouch for this. NATE J. STOBER RI-IEA HENRY Hesse FLORIDA Boxwell Graduate, 1911 g Class Treasurer, 1912-13. Nate is one of our tried and trusty farmer boys. He evidently bases his philosophy on the theory that he will be kept busy tending to his own affairs without mixing in other people's. Nate has a virtue that is not possessed by cer- tain others of his classmates: namely, the abil- ity to remain quiet when he has nothing to say. Nate is a loyal friend, a conscientious, faithful worker and a good student. Graduate Ada Grammar School, 1911. Notwithstanding the fact that Rhea has quite a bit of the scales in her favor, she is one of the fairest of the class of '15, Rhea is a great lover of fun, and her good natured, cheery smile makes one feel that life is worth living- at least it seems to have had some such effect on Ralph. Her eyes remind one of the azure skies of summer. 19 Ada Grammar School, 19IIg Football, 1911-I2-I3-14: Basket Ball, 1913-14-15. Hesse has always been a loyal member of his class both in the school-room and on the athletic field. On the football field Hesse was one of the strongest and steadiest of the back- field men. Strength, good common sense and a pleasant disposition are three prominent fea- tures of this husky lad. The first he acquired, the second he inherited, and the third just seems to be natural for him. W GRACE MARIE LEWIS Boxwell Graduate, 191 l. Here is another one of our rural maids who hits town about 8:30 every morning. We have always found Grace ready to do her part when any work was assigned her. She is generous to all her associatesg quiet, when she can think of nothing to sayg faithful, when she has some- thing to dog and devoted, when she has some one to love. WIDLIAM WOLLAM Ada Grammar School, I9I Ig Chairman I. C. C. Banquet Committee, l9l4-l5. While Bill has never been a shining light in the scholastic line, he is a gentleman of no mean ability. This was shown by his successful man- agement of the I. C. C. Banquet. Will is a born lover of nature, as he seems to be irre- sistibly drawn toward the "Forest." He has an ambition for earning money and when that much desired metal comes into his possession, it is a captive for good. 20 HELEN MCCREERY Berea Grammar School, I9I I 3 Berea High School, 1913. A marvelous mixture of mirth, music and mischief. Helen is one of the slightly elongated members of our class. She joined us in our junior year and has ever since taken a promi- nent part in all activities of the class. She is a faithful friend, a most agreeable companion, always ready for a good time, yet withal a perfect lady. Helen is held in the highest esteem and friendship by all her classmates. MARION Josi-:PH FREEMAN Ada Grammar School, l9llg I. C. C., l9l5. Marion has grown up among us from a wee striving twig to a tall, straight, slender sapling. His greatest delight is in argument, he never sees it like the other fellow. Marion's only weakness lies in the fact that each year he is smitten by some captivating little freshman girl. l-le won the hearty gratitude and approval of his classmates this year by winning the short story in the Inter Class Contest. J AGNES LUCILE. SMITH Boxwell Graduate, 191 l. Agnes comes from the country where the but- ier-cups bloom in the meadows, and paw-paws grow wild on the hillsides. Finding such sur- roundings ill-fitted to develop her extraordinary mental capacity, she decided to come to Ada and there drink of "The Fountain of Knowl- edge." "Cheeks that rival the roses, Teeth the whitest of pearls, She is one of those country maids Worth a score of your city girls." ' 21 PAUL MATHEWS Boxwell Graduate, 1910, I. C. C., l9l4- l5. Behold our class orator. When Paul gets started on a theme he converses in a confidential tone of voice that can be heard for two blocks. l-le represented his class in the Inter-Class Con- test in l9l4 and again in l9I5, coming out victorious on both occasions. He will repre- sent A. H. S. in the Northwestern Ohio Ora- torical Contest at Bluffton on May 7. fSince above writingj Paul won lirst place with hon- ors and a gold medal. THELMA AILEEN STOPHER Liar-in MCKINLEY DAVIS BEULAH M1N1oN POWELL Oakwood Grammar School, l9l l. It would be hard to End a person who could feel blue in the presence of Thelmals sunny face. They say that beauty and brains are never bestowed upon the same person, but here is an exception. She is a most delightful per- son, as ladly-like as a fairy, with a voice fit to charm the angels: and if Madam Rumor relates truthfully has already charmed several Moth- er's angels. Ada. Grammar School, l9lIg Football, l9l3-14, Historian, Class of I9I5. If there is anything in a name our friend Lehr is destined to become famous. In strength and build he is a modern Hercules. He is one of those persons whom we characterize as "slow but sure." Lehr showed wonderful ability at the position of tackle on the football field. He will no doubt soon acquire fame and distinc- tion when he takes up his work in the field of journalism. 22 Boxwell Graduate, l9l l. Beulah is one of our sure enough heavy weights, who, although at all times retaining her poise and dignity, is not slow to assert her rights. We wouldn't advise you to oppose Beulah in any way, or there might be trouble with the result that you would be the leading man in a cute little funeral. Beulah is a dil- igent student, a willing helper and a faithful friend. " 1 4 RALPH KLINGLER HELEN MARGUERITE RUSSELL VON SPELLMAN Boxwell Graduate, l9l0g Class President, 1913-14g Co. G, 0. N. G.g Baseball, l9l2- I3-I4-IS. Poor Ralph! We are afraid the lure of politics will be the undoing of him. He is a born politician and can't help it. Ralph ex- presses the utmost faith in Woodrow, and to him William Jennings is a patron saint. No member of A. H. S. need be surprised if he takes up the daily paper twenty years hence and reads in large head-lines the account of the Honorable Ralph Klinglefs eloquent speech on the floor of the Senate. Ada Grammar School, l9l l. Helen has been somewhat of a shark in her classes. She is very much interested in muni- tions of warfare inasmuch as she displays large quantities of powder. Helen is jolly and sociable, having taken a prominent part in all social activities of the class. We understand that her aspirations run in the direction of being a teacher of Domestic Science. 23 Football, l9ll-l2-l3-l4: Basket Ball, 1913-I4-15: Baseball, l9l2-I3-I4-I5. Von spends his time as a man of leisure and at odd moments studies a little. He is our star athlete. He seems to take to athletics as nat- urally as a duck does to water. His special abilities are not conhned to any one game, as he seems to play each one with equal slcill. Vonis of such a disposition that, like the tea- kettle, he is able to whistle though in water up to his nose. Y i ji-zssna KrNc. Boxwell Graduate, 1911: Carey High School, 1913g Vanlue High School, 1914. Modest, studious, lady-like, and pleasant are some synonyms for Jessie. We made our first acquaintance with her this year. All her asso- ciations with the members of the class have been of the most friendly sort. She has the best wishes of the best class that ever graduatd from Ada High School. i "May there ever be roses in her pathway and may her shadow never grow less." PAUL CAREY Boxwell Graduate, 191 1. Carey, the sport of the Senior class, is a strictly guaranteed article in every way. Paul can play the piano, Paul can read Virgil, and Paul can write notes, but most of all Paul can wiggle, and this he persists in doing a greater part of the time. With the amount of knowl- edge this young gentleman has stored up during the past four years he ought to surprise the world. 24 ANNA TALMAGE HARSHMAN Bowell Graduate, 19114 New Stark .High School, 191 3. "Everybody knows me by my laugh." Talmage has stood well in her classes and in this way she has won the respect of students and faculty. Like a record on a phonograph, she doesn't make much noise until she gets started- but then, Oh, my! She is a beautiful singer, a good student, and a faith ful worker. We are told she aspires to the high position of a peda- gogue. RUTH MAME WOLFLEY Boxwell Graduate, I9l l : New Stark High School, l9l3. No, dear reader, it is not a vision but only the fair features of our friend and classmate Ruth. Ruth is another of those who comes from that wonderfully distinguished and far- famecl place they call "New Stark." Ruth possesses wonderful powers as any one will tell you who has seen her exert her wonderful in- fluence over Elliott in Physics class. JULIUS E. BARDELMEIER Antwerp Grammar School, l9l l 3 Antwerp High School,- l9l 3g Defiance Academy, l9l 43 Basket Ball, l9l4-l5. Be not deceived for this exquisitely fine look- ing young gentleman is not half so innocent as his looks would imply. We are sorry that cit- cumstances have prevented our being more closely associated with Julius in High School, as his extra work at the University has kept him away from the building most of the time. As a member of the basket ball team he showed unusual ability, especially when it came to tossing the ball through the ring! 25 DoRo'rHA CANDACE S1NK1-:Y Boxwell Graduate, 19114 Hartford High School, l9l 3. "Thou art a woman and that is saying the best and the worst of thee." While Dorotha has never endeavored to make herself conspicu- ous in one way or another, she has been one of the quiet but faithful members of the class "Sinkey" shows marked scholastic ability, but if we are truthfully informed she aspires to other fields than Scholarship: namely, that of Matrimony. I GEORGE ROBERT BOTKIN BERT1-xA PEARL STREET Ross D. ROSENBERGER Ada Grammar School, l9l I g Football: Basket Ball, l9l 3-I4-15, Class Prophet, l9l 5: "Boddie" is a poet and philosopher-at least he thinks so, but strange to say, others disagree with him. In football he acquired the distinc- tion of being the best High School quarterback in Ohio. He was also a howling success as a book agent. He is the steam, the noise, and the fun of the Senior class. He is a rare speci- men and well worthy studying. Ada Grammar School, l9l l. Bertha is one of our number who although she has never caused a great stir, has shown herself at all times to be a perfect lady, and a faithful student. Not what you call a social butterfly, not a. wonderful scholar, not a greal musician-these 'she is not. What is she? just quiet, genuine, steady, faithful, loyal, and such qualities as mean happiness, enjoyment, and the consciousness of work well done. t 26 Stow High School, l9l4. Ross is one of our superfluous talkers who always has an easy How of language, with ample words to express his thoughts and some to spare. In the classroom he has shown him- self to he a diligent student, an active thinker and an unusually well informed pupil. "He to higher fields is destined-in a grander plane his thought, For in Thelma Stopher his every hope is wrought." ' VERNICE KEMMERLY Boxwell Graduate, l9ll: Wharton High School, l9l 4. Vernice's quiet unassuming manner has lrept us all guessing. She walks about with a digni- fied mien, and attends closely to her own affairs. If some one had heard Vernice laughing boister- ously it would have caused a general alarm. However Vernice always seemed ready to make a recitation, and perhaps her grades would make some of ours look rather small. Yve all join her in the earnest wishes that she will never become a cross old maid. RUTH SINNA TR!-:MAIN Boxwell Graduatei 1911.

Class of l9lff, being mentally awake,physically it 'E F l strong and morally straight, and being desirous of settling our worldly affairs, while we can do so satisfactorily, do hereby make, publish, and declare this our last will and 'e testament. To the forthcoming generations of men we do bequeath our heartiest regards "with malice toward none and charity for all," leav- ing to them our absolutely unexcelled success in all matters pertaining to our educational development. To the warring nations of Europe, battling for racial existence, we will and bequeath the marvelous superfluity of powder carelessly applied in the preservation of youth and beauty by Senior Co-eds. To George Kelly, proprietor of the gigantic "Kelley Paper Mill,", we hereby will and bequeath the great hordes of the papers that greatly assisted us in passing exams. To the Class of l9l6 we will and bequeath an enlarged copy of the constitution of the State of Ohio, placing special stress upon the sections relating to the prohibition of the use of firearms within the limits of our humble villageg furthermore, we bequeath to you, eldest sister, our elaborate abode, the witness of our educational merits. Thus this Senior room inherited by us from our recently deceased sister, the Class of l9l4, passes from us to you. To the Class of l9l7 we will and bequeath: firstly, our pre- vious ardent ambition to become Seniorsg whether or not they attain that distinction. I' Secondly, we give our gigantic megaphone successfully used on the night of the Inter-Class Contest, ,l9I5. Thirclly, to the ambitious aspirants of your class for oratorical honors, we liberally leave the babbling vociferosity employed by the head of our financial department in the extortion of certain funds re- quired to defray the expenses incurred by that worthy body. To the Class of l9lS we bequeath to you, infant sister, an unfailing fund of that virtue, "Stick-to-it-ivenessf' which is required to scale the lofty barriers and unsurmountable obstacles encountered in the quest of knowledge. Secondly, to the weak-eyed members of your class we do will and bequeath the nine pair of plate glass "optic-blinkers" shattered by the piercing gaze of our worthy class president, during the four long years of his high school career. To our honored faculty we do will and bequeath our heartfelt congratulations, on their physical and mental endurance and patience to tolerate the imbecility demonstrated by us during our High School Course. Having distributed our chattels to the best of our ability, and hoping we have forgotten none of our close relation, we close this document as our last will and testament on this thirteenth day of April, l9l5, A.

E Jean was the only name by which he was known to any 1 one. The captain fwho was a hero in more ways than one, having won his cross of 'the Legion of Honor in D Moroccan warsl, had picked him up from the gutter one night, half-starved. It was a good thing that the company adopted him, otherwise his earthly career would have been greatly shortened. But the company did adopt him, and he became its pet and at the mature age of thirteen became junior bugler. He had learned the calls from the senior, who later left the ranks and jean became junior in place of the one who had been promoted. On his fourteenth birth- day his comrades presented him with a silver horn. His two special friends were the captain and the gruff old first sergeant, Raol Lambert. Lambert was gruff at the surface, but at heart was kind. He it was who schooled the lad in the modes of the soldiers. One day like a bolt from the blue sky the call to mobilization came. Germany declared war and the Uhlans began their now famous march on Paris. The regiment of which Iean's company was a unit was near the frontier and one of the first called into active service. After several days of marching and nights of rain the enemy was located. The hostile force was large, consisting of a strong cavalry screen of Uhlans and a powerful offensive force of infantry and artillery. The right wing of the German and the corresponding wing of the French army lay in a small forest. Jean's company was in the forest. The whole division began to intrench when they found the enemy, although it was nearly night and they had marched a long way. In about an hour a shallow trench was completed. At dusk the artillery on both sides opened fire. But this was ineffective and in a short while had practically stopped owing to the gathering darkness. The French made a great mistake in not placing their searchlights immediately, for in the morning they found that the Germans had advanced and were strongly intrenchecl within nine hundred yards. At once a heavy rifle fire was opened up all along the French line to cover the bringing up of the reserves for a charge. Jean was awe stricken by this, his first battle. l-le felt a strong impulse to run away and ducked unconsciously as the bullets whistled past. Suddenly Lambert, near whom ,lean was lying, was struck in the head by a fragment of shrapnel. Then, terrihed, the boy got up and ran as fast as his legs could carry him. But a long lean arm reached out and grabbed him. The captain ffor it was hcl slapped Jean square across the mouth with his gloved hand and spoke two words. "You coward!" With that, disdaining to look at the boy, he ran up to the trench. He crawled into some underbush nearby and lay there, sobbing. At noon the French charged. But the terrific countercharge of the Uhlans bore them back to the trenches with frightful loss. There with stern doggedness they held the enemy in check until night, that great assuager of sorrows, closed over them with a blanket of peace. Soon the rifle fire had entirely stopped and nothing showed that two ' i warring armies faced each other but the intermittent booming of the nine centimetre guns, the arc described by a great searchlight sweeping over the sky, or the groans of the wounded and dying. , At night jean crept out from the copse and sought the captain. The ofhcer would have nothing to do with him, however, considering him a disgrace to the company. So the lad turned and ran, not know- ing where nor caring, only desiring to get away from the sorrowful, accusing eyes of the captain. As he crashed through the woods, his bugle on its long cord twisted between his legs at every step. Sud- denly a great pair of arms opened out in front of him and he stopped with a jerk. Looking up, he saw that the man was one of the hated Germans. Then he tried to break loose. He bit and scratched and kicked but the iron grip just held him tighter. Finally, out of breath, he subsided. Then the German spoke, in good French. "Ah, you little cat! My, how you scratched. l've captured the first Frenchman, and he's a bugler, too." The soldier pressed a tiny whistle to his lips. ln a moment two others came through the undergrowth. One spoke. "What have we here, Hans?" "I've been lucky, Johann. I just caught this little scratch-cat. You may see that he is a bugler and so quite a prize. You will have to take him to the guard-house." The newcomer picked Jean up and carried him along in spite of his renewed kicking and scratching: but before they had gone very far some one stepped out in front of them. "Whom have you there?" demanded an authoritative voice. "A little French bugler, Herr Captain." "A bugler, eh? Well, some prize, I must say." The men saluted and walked on. At last they came to a rude hut with a guard before it. One of Jean's captors opened the door and shoved him in. "Pleasant dreams," said the German as he went out. Jean crawled back into the corner on some straw and tried to go to sleep: but he could not as many tales of the dreadful Uhlans had come to his ears. So, restless, he waited the long night out. In the meanwhile the German captain who had met Jean while in the arms of the soldier, lit: a cigarette and through the smoke wreaths tried' to think of some way to help his country and incidentally himself. Presently he clapped his hands and spoke, half to himself, half to the fog that enveloped him. "That's the thing! What is the life of one French gamin to a German victoryli' Then he turned and went to his tent. ' ln the morning the French reopened fire on the enemy. When the battel was hottest fabout nine o'clockJ the German captain went to the hut where jean lay, seized him roughly and pulled him aong until they were well in the wood. They were so near the French lines that they could hear the officers giving the commands. The German suddenly jerked his automatic out and pressing it to Jean's head, said, "The retreat! Blow me the French retreat or you shall die!" Jean looked at him as if he did not understand. The officer took out his watch fa fine gold onel and spoke again. "Blow me the retreat and you shall have this watch." There was a faraway look in the lad's dark eyes. He raised the bugle to his lips. The German cried: "There, there, that's it-what?" The heavy bullet crashed through the boy's brain for he had blown the charge! In the French line his old captain cried: "Comrades, it is ,Iean's bugle. Forward along the whole line." After a herce charge the enemy was driven back. Then in a lull in the fighting the captain stumbled over Jean's body. Sobbing he kneeled and pinned his own medal of the Legion on the boy's breast. Then raising he cried in a broken voice: "Comrades-Jean was no coward. He won the battle for us. He-play the-charge!" l 'l History of Class of l9l 5 Br LEHR M. DAv1s CAV? l America since that time has been raised to the highest esteem among all nations. ln l903 a certain primary - fr fr-' teacher discovered something almost equally as great- namely, the future famous Class of 1915. So many little tots, with no cares of life and with little realization of their future prominence, began their duties that year. Time rolled onwardrbut no one realized the importance of the fact that this class would be the far-famed Class of l9l 5. So matters were when we entered the Educational Palace on a gloriously bright morning of September in the year I9l l. We had already begun to think of our prominence, and now thought we were brilliant. But alas! Others saw differently. The class, although I still say it was bright and talented, was green, and so we 'chose our colors, "green and yellow"-a perfect symbol of our brilliance. We also chose Von Spellman as the first President of that "bunch of greeniesu as others saw us. But other people know not the ad- vantages in being a Freshman. This year marked the arrival of a few more students, who were to share the honors in l9l5. As Boxwell graduates six personages entered our midst-namely, Paul Carey, Crrace Lewis, Paul Mathews, Beulah Powell, Agnes Smith and Nate Stober. ' 1492 Christopher Columbus discovered America, a land 5 of much -promise-for wealth and ' a battle ground i 1 All the aforenamed were welcomed with pride, for we knew they would not seek admittance if they were not worthy.A This year also brought to us Thelma Stopher from Oakwood. She is one who can always be depended upon. This year we were represented well in football for we sent three good men to the squad-Botkins, Florida and Spellman. This year aso brought to view a class basket ball team which has since made many fine records. Our teachers this year were Mr. Brown, who gently reminded us several times fwith his happy smilej of Crooksville and the natural phenomena surrounding that place: Mr. Hill, under whose stern guid- ance and efficient leadership we were almost not worthy to beg kind Miss Beiler, who gently poured out the Essentials in Latin upon our benumbed senses, and gentle Miss Galbreath, ever and anon persistently endeavoring to get us to spell our words correctly or to construct a sentence right. In January we were reminded that the Inter-Cass Contest was not far off, and that we should begin preparation for it. Accordingly we met in a distinguished assemblage and decided that our talented class should be represented by Irene Wilson, recitation, and Gertrude lVlertz, short story. They immediately began to prepare for the fatal night. The evening of the contest came and a great flock of Freshies thronged the High School Hall at an early hour, to await defeat or glorious victory. One spectacular scene was the southwest window decorated gorgeously with latticedgreen and yellow crepe paper. How it attracted the attention of the upper-classmenli ' V 1 The program began and was carried out.-in saeprofound manner. The judges' report came last on the program and 'afterward--ah! yes, afterward-"sed quid ego haec antem nequiguem ingrata revolvo?" Now comes our 'second year. We were Sophomores. Oh! how we had aspired to become such. Now we were able to look down upon under-classmen we had crossed the opponent's forty-yard line and were getting in shape to make an end run. This year we as a class became acquainted with Bertha Street, Ross Rosenberger, Frank Cussans, Homer Vanica and Dortha Sinkey. But as sorrow follows gladness we found to the extreme disappointment of all that Miss Galbreath had withdrawn -her lovely face from the corps of teachers. She' was replaced by one whom we at first thought was the ghost of Abraham Lincolng but afterwards discovered it was the tall lengthy frame of V. T. Sheets. Another face was added alsog that of Mr. Hinkle, who was always liked by everyone, and his kind and efficient teaching thrilled the class with that indescribable power which made each one wish to always be present in his classes. This year we were well represented on the gridiron, for we sent four members to the squad-the three of the previous year with the addition of Corbett. Our-cass began to shine in athletics and some people began to think that was all the way it did shine. But when the Inter-Class Contest came again they soon changed their minds. This year the classvgelected the newcomer, Frank Cussans, as President of the class. 'When it came time to think about the Inter- Class Contest, we began to look around for clebaters and finally after long deliberation we selected Frank Mercer and Homer Vanica. Irene Wilson again represented us with a recitation. Being rather more experienced we were much more successful in our decorations and not only that, for we tied for the recitation, losing the debate to the Juniors. All our contestants did splendiclly and their best and we appreciated their work very much., i Now we were prepared to enter the Junior year. We were Juniors at last. Now we belonged to that organization to which we had fwhen Freshmenl looked up to with awe and suspense. Now we could look back and see our foolishness and greenness. This year we missed the happy smile of Mr. Brown and the stern countenance of Mr. Hill, also in a few weeks' time we lost the kind and gentle Miss Beiler, who was replaced by many until finally Mrs. Hickernell consented to take permanent charge of the Latin de- partment. Mr. Brown was succeeded by Mr. Stage, 'a veryi com- petent gentleman, to serve as superintendent. Mr. Blue took Mr. Hill's place as principal, and we soon found him to be the very best kind of a teacher and principal. Mr. Sheets and Mr. Hinkle were still with us. , . This year was the banner year. for the admittance of new stu- dents, for our class took up the cases of the New Stark graduates. This delegation was made up by Walter Agin, Mary Blosser, Talmage Harshman, Ralph Neiswander, and Ruth Woliley. These, together with Helen McCreery. Harry McElroy and Ralph Klingler, com- prised the addition to the class. We now began our year's work by -electing Ralph Klingler President. He served us faithfully to the end. Again we furnished a great number to the football squad. Almost half the team was made up of Juniors. The same four who had served the year before again offered their services. We also found our help greatly appreciated for .Iecld Corbett was unanimously elected captain of the eleven. The greatest event in this year of our school life was the Inter- Class Contest for the most ecitement was created over this than any other thing. As the class's representatives in the debate we elected Frank Mercer and Walter Agin and for the oration, Paul Mathews received the honor. The contestants went to work with a vim and vigor that surprised us all, and justly were they rewarded for their persistent efforts and sleepless nights, for when the judges' report was announced we were raised to such a high standard that we even looked down upon the Seniors and we had just cause to do so for we had defeated them in the oration and defeated the Sophomores in the debate and made the highest average of any class. Did I not tell you the same some time previous-that this class of 1915 was bright and talented? ' When May came and the grade cards were .passed out, Ol What joy filled those faces. Darkness and sorrow found no home there. We had almost attained the goal. We had become Seniors, an honor to which we had aspired for the three previous years. Through the summer every one was wondering if we would have an annual, who would edit the annual, who would be president of the class, and who would be this and who would be that. Time told, for after school had begun and we had become settled we elected Frank Mercer, our last president, and- Walter Agin as editor of the annual. Now we had reached the highest department in the building. Others looked up to us as an example. We shouldered the responsi- bility and trudged onward. Now we began to realize that this was our last year together. We began to think of the trials and tribula- tions we would encounter in life's pathway. Then it was that we understood why the Senior is much more dignified than other classmen. 'if Rosa Betzel, Vernice Kimmerly and Julius Bardelmeir com- prised the addition to the class this year. Our new teachers were Mr. Elliott, Mr. Harvey and Mr. Darby, while we lost- Mr. Sheets and Mr. Hinkle. i . - In January' we. elected our contestants for the Inter-Class Con- test. Paul Mathews was unanimously elected as our orator, and Marion Freeman was chosen to represent us with a short story. They immediately began their work of preparationi Nights of endless worry and days of eternal toil haunted them persistently. Peace was not with them until the night of the contest, when Freeman with a story not to be equaled and'lVlathews with an oration which was a masterpiece in itself, not to mention the matchless eloquence with which he delivered it, won a victory which will go down in the history of the Inter-Class Contests as one of the greatest in importance and thus constituting the second great victory in oiir High School career. - And now as we put our shoulder to the'wheel of life and push we find things come .as older folks have told us-that life is not all made up of laurels. ' Thus it ends and I sincerely hope that we may all be happy and prosperous in our future life, and that thishistory may be the source of much enjoyment to my classmates in after years. ,, ,l lb 1 11 la fl' ,.,..-- x 4'-,I px ,,. eq,s I fgg X3 Z' -57,41 i,f- --- Y Y- f A 1"-i5f'. ?f' c if-423' 125- .54 -aj ,mfg 'Yi' " 1: l ""' VI .

S I AIWOKE., I caught a glimpse of sunlight through the iii battering lids of my eyes. I raised my body from the rest gotten through the warm night, but still remaining in a sitting posture on the ground with coat in my lap, I --W - 4 rubbed my eyes, then stretched with my arms extending their full length from my shoulder, and over my head in a lazy sort of a wayg but nevertheless the desired effects were accomplished. Now, feeling myself ready for breakfast, I proceeded to unrap- my light lunch which consisted of two large pieces of bread, spread with a thin layer of butter. This is my breakfast, all that I have in the world, with the exception of these old ragged clothes, hat with more space in holes than felt, but which furnishes good ventilation: and shoes that possess peep-holes for my toes. And still I consider myself lucky because I have a little spark of life remaining in my body. "It kinda looks as tho' the Lord has some respect and love for me or I would have crossed the bar long ago. Here I am, nothing but a bum, a tramp, come from somewhere but going to no place in particular. "When I was younger, I was on the road to some goal, and I guess I've reached it. Yet I did not realize this future then,-but I am all alone in this world,-just guess I'll travel on." As the shades of eve were falling, I plodded on Westward across the great prairie-like plain of South Dakota, nearly thirty miles distant from the beautiful spot left that morning: I was growing very tired when I saw just ahead of me a fine lay of grass, that was richly colored with a hue of deep green. This spot looked inviting to my weary bones, and with coat under my ami, increasing my stride I reached this fertile spot of the universe. "I can surely have a peaceful rest here tonight, if the stars will only shine down upon me. This is an ideal place and the day has been a beautiful one, hence the evening ought to bless me with kind- ness. As the last ray of the sun casts its light in the blue of the horizon on this beautiful August day, I lay down on the soft grass, in the still warm air, with my coat doubled over a stone, my head resting upon it, I fell asleep, with the twinkling stars my only admirers watching over me. I soon clozed into a deep slumber and was lost to the world of the living beings. Ah! again I fmd a feeling of mental consolation creeping into my brain, sort of an itching feeling, then a great light beams out from the heavensg a ladder is being formed-Ah! the angels are descend- ing-the ladder has finally reached the ground to where I am lying: the host of angels coming down to meet me. How strange-why is this? What am I to do? It's a beauti ful sight, yet fear seems to rule my body. I am quite nervous, but I must fear nothing and arise to greet the angels, hundreds of them- as far as I can see. Gee! Heaven must be a glorious placeg I wonder if the Lord will forgive me of my wrong-doing in the past, I'd like to go there. By the time all this passed through my brain, the angel in the lead of the rest reached out her arms to meet me, and I immediately accepted her offer to take me to heaven. But how can I get to heaven? What good have I ever done on earth? The Lord surely hasn't sent for me? But I'll go-dear angelg no, I'll not refuse. I'm no account to this world, so I might as well go to heaven while I have the chance. No, I won't argue, I'l go. Come on, and I grabbing her by the arm, started up the golden stairs toward heaven. ' We climbed up the broad stairs between two rows of beautiful angels who were smiling and singing praises unto the Lordg which made me feel that He was the greatest character and ruler that any man could see. And here am I, a tramp, an outcst in the world. to have the greatest honor of all,--that of being inheaven with the Lord. As we reached the gates of heaven, they were flung wide open, and St. Peter with his golden staff in hand, greeted me with a low bow and with one of those beautiful heavenly smiles, said, "Welcome to our home, but just a minute until we change your garments and give you a pair of wings. We want you for an angel for several reasons: first, because you have such a beautiful voice." Yes, that's right, St. Peter, I have." "Second, because you're just the right size." "Yes, that's true, St. Peter, I weigh two hundred pounds." "Third, because we figure that since you were such a bright lad in High School you will surely make a brilliant angel." "Yes, I was at the head of my class, St. Peter." "Fourth, and last, because we need you to bring your old school- mates up to heaven fwhen they dielg that's all you have to do." "Well, St. Peter, I'll promise you that I won't have a thing to do." 'Ohl by the way, St. Peter, I would like to walk over the heavens to see where all my old schoolmates areg I've lost trace of them." By this time I had changed garments and with my wings fastened on to my shoulders, I felt as though I was something. "Well, come on," said St. Peter, and grasping my hand he led me down the glass pavement through the throng of angels who were all noticing me, or at least I felt as though they were, because I was a new angel. I was somewhat surprised when I looked through this glass pavement that it greatly magnified the earth and I could plainly see some familiar places in the Eastern part of South Dakota over which I had just traveled. We passed on over Iowa until we reached Des Moines, where I saw my old schoolmate of the Class of l9l5-Paul Mathews- yes, it was Paul not only posing, but really was a prominent judge and orator of the times. St. Peter says that Paul is visiting the city of Des Moines, but lives in Chicago. "He has a fine wife: she's at home: let's go over because she also is a member of your old class." 'Tm quite anxious to see who she is, St. Peter: let's hurry over to Chicago. Well, what do you know about that! Mary Blosser! But I always thought Paul would win her heart and hand." "St, Peter, isn't that Talmage I-Iarshman visiting Mrs. Mathews? Why, it is as sure as the Heavens are paved with glass. You say she is an old maid school teacher That's just what I thought she would be." It was night time clown on earth and darkness prevailed, but we walked over to the largest theater of Chicago where I saw with sur- prise Mme. Dorothy Sinkey with a large attentive audience before her, being charmed by the beautiful voice which had given Dorothy the honor of being the world's greatest soprano. We then left Chicago and traveled all the way to Ohio above the Pennsylvania R. R. until we reached Lima, when to my surprise I saw another old maid from our class, but not a school teacherg in- stead il was the cashier at the Boston store, this was Gertrude Mertz. From Lima we turned our course toward Bluffton. When we reached that place, I watched with a little envy one of my old friends courting a Bluffton girl, Hesse Florida, who is a prominent merchant tailor over in my old home town. Again we changed our course--traveled south four, then east three miles and here I saw a familiar face, that of Nate Stober, who was washing his hands, getting ready for dinner. I was astonished to recognize his wife as an old schoolmate, Grace Lewis. They seemed to be happy, on their big farm. From here we traveled on over to Ada. When I reached the town, the old High School building seemed familiar and in the third grade I saw Bertha Street, teaching the pupils some of the things she had learned inside those walls. Over in the fifth grade I saw Vernice Kemmerly as an instructor: both she and Bertha were successful teachers. , , We then walked above Main Street to the Methodist church, then turned one block east where I gazed down upon a magnificent house. In this residence I saw a lady beautifully gowned, sitting before the fireplace. "Well, well, St. Peter, there is Helen McCreeryg you say she is married? Who could her husband be? He is a grocer? Sure, we will walk over to his store, I want to see him." We arrived at the old stand of Povenmire. As I stooped over to see through the glass pavement, I saw Frank Mercer--sure enough. 'You know, St. Peter, I always thought Frank would turn back to his first love: I just felt it in my bones that he would marry Helen. How strange, it came true." Just across the street, in the old Murray Block, I see Helen Russell and Ruth Tremain as partners, being proprietresses of a beauty parlor. "Did you know, St. Peter, that they can manufacture beau- tiful complexions on earth? It's true, they can." We walked on over to the Spellman home, where we saw seated at the dinner table, Von, who had come home to rest up. "Did you say, St. Peter, that he is a reformed baseball player, an evangelist as Billy Sunday was? Is that right? I noticed he just asked the blessing. Well, I'm glad to hear that, but it's news to me. But yet there's a great many changes in the past twenty years." There goes Agnes Smith by in an automobile. "Did she ever get married, St. Peter? She didn't? So she's a rich old maid, owns hve large farms? Well, good for her: she'll be able to catch a hus- band yet." "Look, St. Peter, there goes Julius Bardelmeier, flying over town in an aeroplane. There is another. What does that mean? Lehr Davis and Walter Agin in a biplane. You say Walter and Julius are in government service? Well, that means they can fly high. And Lehr Davis a great historian? just what I expected, St. Peter." We walked on over Ohio above Pennsylvania. In the con- servatory of music in the University of Pittsburg I saw through the pavement as an instructor Miss Mary Wells. Then walking over Pennsylvania into New York, near Rochester, I noticed Ruth Wolfley and Rosa Betzel, both married to dairy farmers, their husbands being in partnership. As we walked over New York City, I was very much astonished to see how much the town had grown. "This is the place that they have roof gardens. I never could see how they were able to raise vegetables on the roof. Oh yes, there is one now: I see Paul Carey is proprietor. I didn't hardly know him: he is so fat." On over Wall Street. "Well, there is Jedd Corbett, a banker. What do you know about that, St. Peter. But I thought he would make good." "And there goes Marion Freeman. You say he is editor of tlhe New York Times and a great author? Well, I'm glad to hear t at." - As we walked over the residence section of the city, I got down on my knees to make sure that my eyes were not deceived. "Ralph Klingler-and he owns a large publishing house, did you say, St. Peter? I thought he would some day and also believed he would marry Rhea Henry--there she is-and laughing too." From New York we waked over New Iersey and Maryland to Washington, D. C. ln the House of Representatives I see Ralph Neiswander, as sure as l'm in Heaven, and just across the room is Beulah Powell, another representative. "l..et's walk over to the Senate, St. Peter. Who is that dignified gentleman sitting there in the Senate? Why, it is Will Wollam! a Senator from Ohio, sure it is!" "And there is Ross Rosenberger, Vice President of the United States. Married? Who did he marry, St. Peter? Why, I might have known he would have tied up with Thelma Stoph-er." We then walked out over the oceang I saw a large steamer going toward New York from the southeast. As it passed under us I saw Jessie King, who was just returning to America from India, where she had been performing the duty of a missionary. We walked on above the ocean and turned our course slightly north. The icebergs made me shiver as I looked down upon them. "Did you say there was a wreck over yonder? I see the life boats filled with women. Who's that afloat on a life preserver? It's Frank Cussans, my old schoolmate, and the one who deserves more credit than any of our old class, adrift in the cold sea. So he has become a great chemist and is known all over the world? Well, St. Peter, I'm glad to hear thatg I knew he would be known sometimes and recognized by all men as being of some great good. You say he won the Nobel prize last year for Chemical discoveries? Oh! I beieve he is losing hold on that preserver-he's sinking, St. Peter! Did you say go down and bring him to Heaven? All right--I will open the door here, then fly down to him. I'm nearly to the water nowg I'll go down to the bottom and then return with him." 'BOOR-r-r-r-r-I'm lying right in a puddle of water and the rain is pouring. I never thought it would rain tonight." I jumped up from my damp bed, plunging through the blinding rain and the intense darkness looking for shelter, but none was to be found. But I being a tramp must not envy nature in her little tricks. ,fr Wren I f ,o l L ' I 0 Q .ll Launched, But Whither Bound ORAT1oN, BY PAUL MATHEWS F I, HE great procession of mankind in its unnumbered millions -- is ever sweeping across the narrow stage of life, issuing, 1 from a darkness in which they are not, and passing into a 'darkness in which they are no more seen. We watch that 'es ' " procession as it winds through the long centuries of history, and we note its most striking figures. Some are Kings, who built pyramids, and some are Poets, "with their garlands and swinging robes about them," some are great Discoverers, who enlarged the powers of man over the forces of natureg some are great Philosophers, who widened the limits of human thought. But it is not of such as these that the great procession is composed. Vast masses of it consist of a nameless throng-the poor, the ordinary, the average, the undis- tinguishedg men whose little lives gleamed for a moment out of the eternities and then disappearedg men who lie in earth's millions of nameless graves-the meaning and even the bare fact of their existence is much obliterated from all human history and from every human memory as thought it had been a speck of foam on the immeasurable sea: men who had launched, but were not victors of their course, but victims of the current, who were bound to destruction, not because of purpose to fail, but from a lack of purpose to succeed. Yes,-launched, but whither bound? What, I ask, will be the final anchorage of those who live only to gratify the mean and sensual egotism of a hungry, shivering self: of all whose lifelong example is deepening man's feverish thirst for gold: of all those who have heaped for themselves riches as for a day of slaughter by oppression, robbery, or wrong: of all those who by the unlawful indulgence of their lowest passions have contributed to poison the lifeblood of mankindg of all whose words or writings have infected the stream of life with the leprous distilment of polluted thoughtsg of all who have helped to degrade life from its sweet and serious sanctity into vulgarism and frivolityg of all who have flourished by the causes of human misery and ruin, of all the idle cumberers of the ground whose root has been as rottenness and their blossom gone up as dust-I again ask, what will be their destination? They were launched at one time by some one, on the sea of life, but whither are they drifting? The world may give them fortunes or loud applause, but for the eyes of God the thistles of human loftiness have no elevation, and molehills cast no shadow. But, oh, with what unspeakable relief do we turn from those bound for darkness, to individuals and nations who are bound in the right direction. In them is the healing of the world. History is brilliant with examples. But why should we go to foreign lands for illustrations when our own country is rich in proofs? just think of it! When on the fourth day of July, l776, thirteen states declared their independence, a new country was launched upon the world. The colonists hoped for the best, but would they their hopes realize? What was to be the future of this country? Was it to fulfill its mission or its destiny? No wonder that many a man and ftmany a woman asked themselves, "Launched, but whither bound?" Perhaps we can answer that question, at least better than the colonists, whose country had no past. . We are charged, I know, with being given to boasting but this reproach must not deter me from speaking of the course the ship of state has followed. Two hundred years have hardly passed over us and we have redeemed from a savage wildness a realm with which European 'countries are dwarfed into provinces, and through every period of our history we have been pressing forward to an equality of rights and a freedom of institutions nowhere else known in the past or present times. The deliberate construction of a policy in which the idea of liberty is realized to a degree not dreamed of in other countries, is one of the grandest achievements of our history. Other governments, the creatures of chance and obstructed by the abuses of barbarous times, bear no such testimony to the energy and elevation of the public mind. Through this clear, bright, practical develop- ment of -the principle of liberty, the United States, an infant country, growing up in a distant country has moved and quickened the civilized world. This country has been launched by Providence for a two- fold work, to spread civilization over a new continent, and to give a new impulse to the cause of human rights and freedom. A higher destiny has been granted to no people, and with all our imperfections we have accomplished our task with a force of thought and will un- surpassed in human history. In the progress of temperance, education, and religious sensibility in our land is there no impulse among us to fulfill the destiny the Father of Lights laid out for us? But American institutions like everything else have in themselves the seed of death if they are not properly exercised. When this great body of our citizens becomes afHicted with paralysis it is the easiest thing in the world for the strong and resourceful "boss" by careful selection of his precinct committeemen-and other local workers all over his state to seize power-legislative, executive and even judicial. Where this has been successful the Republic no longer endures, the people no longer rule, an oligarchy rules in the name of the people. Where this is true the people deserve their fate. And so, young man, get right into the "mix of things." if you do not expect this fate to overcome the entire country, you must Mark, I am speaking to you, young man, about to be launched upon a life of activity and strife, I am speaking to you, my friend, perhaps still doubtful about your career. I am addressing you, young man, about to leave the schools and embark upon life's ocean. Soon our schools will launch thousands of them, whither are they drifting? If I close my eyes before my mental vision countless legions of stalwart youths pass in review, I see that multitude coming from our high schools, colleges and universities, and thronging the busy streets and villages throughout the land. Within a brief time they will be- come busy and important actors upon the stage of life. Ch, that each of them could clearly see his destination, that each of them would be bound for a haven of safety, contributing in a greater or less degree to aid in improving, extending, and perpetuating the civil, religious and literary privileges which we enjoy. Oh, my young friends, what more would we have if but through a deep valley of humiliation there still lies a path to the summit. We say that we are bound for a noble port. Let us then set our affec- tions upon things above, not on things on the earth, for you see a life thiat is proud of earth would treat it as the dust under their feet. A life spent at the clerk's desk, a life spent in the narrow shops, a life spent in the open field, a life spent in the laborer's hut may yet be a life so ennobled with Cod's loving mercy that for the sake of it a King might gladly yield his crown.

Members of the Class of 1915:- DEAR FRIENDS:-It seems but a short time since we entered Ada High School together inrseptember, l9l l. It is indeed a pleasure to recall those days that passed away only too quickly and to congratulate you upon your gradu- ation. My acquaintance with you during your Freshman, Soph- omore and early part of your Junior year was most pleasant. I distinctly remember that the attitude of your class toward its new work that first day was of the same earnest character as of the rest of the High School. Each year brought us work and its pleasures-pleasures, yes-we at once think of the funny experiences in preparation for our first Inter- Class Contest. But, "experience is a great teacher," and your class could soon prove what it was capable of doing, both in artistic and mental ability at Contest time. I prize the association I have had with you and I am now pleased with your splendid Senior class. Your work that was done willingly and cheerfully was always commend- able. Let me thank you now for your courtesy and kindness. In entering upon your new work, have an ambition and determination to succeed, always keeping before you only the highest ideals. With heartiest congratulations, I remain, Your friend, A ET1-nil. E. BEILER. ,MN fi Z Q Q Q f""L'1. 44 History, Class of 'I6 By GLADYS Bnssuza 3' HE beginning of the school year, September, l9l2, marks it the date of an important event in the history of Ada High iw School. The present Junior Class joined the mighty throng 'zffitff' of strugglers along the flower path of knowledge! For l u - as -y 3 some of the new freshies it was hard to find the class rooms, but after drifting about for a week, attending wrong classes, missing the right ones and numerous other incidents, the Freshman class finally became established and began its course. The inter-class contest which might rightly be termed the "event of the season," was not entirely successful this year. We lost the short story and tied in the recitation, but on the whole the contest was real exciting. Our teachers this year, Mr. Brown, Mr. Hill, Miss Beiler, Mr. Sheets and Mr. Hinkle seemingly approved of our work, for at the end of the term they signed up our promotion cards and we were no longer Freshmen but Sophomores! ' I This year brought some changes in our faculty. With Mr. Stage as superintendent and Mr. Blue as principal we started in on our new term. Other members of the faculty were, Mr. Sheets, Mr. Hinkle, Mrs. Hickernell and Miss Souder. The enthusiastic class spiri-t shown this year made our Inter-Class contest an exciting and enjoyable event, although it did not result en- tirely in our favor. We lost the debate and won the recitation.. This year passed quickly and at last we realized that we were juniors! To write the history of our present is somewhat difficult, not be- f I s cause nothing of importance has happened this year, but because it is rather hard to write about something to which a definite conclusion cannot be givena So far in our High School career we have tried to act in a manner becoming to the class and to be a credit to our school. Our present teachers are Mr. Stage, Mr. Blue, Mrs. Hiclcernell, Miss Souder, Mr. Harvey, Mr. Elliott and Mr. Darby. We are hardly in a position to express our opinions of them until the end of the last semester. i During our three years in High School we are glad to know that our class was always well represented in athletics, and as we are all aware of what our school is able to do along this line we are glad to know that our class did not shirk. Now in our advanced years of high school life' we hope that we have benefited others as well as ourselves, and that at our graduation next year our l9l6 star will shine out brightly among the other stars of the Ada High crown. The contest has occurred since the history was written, and as it would not be well to omit anything so important, we will just add a paragraph. As Juniors we were supposed to represent our class in the oration and debate. We won the debate and made a close run on the oration. The contest was well supplied with class spirit which bubbled over quite frequently during the contest, but at the banquet which followed, class distinction was done away with and a general good humor prevailed.

I walked on a little piece and saw Chet's hat lying on the ground. A little farther, I saw his arm: and a little farther his head and I said to myself, "My Cawd, sumpin must have happened to Chet."

With looks of awe we wandered from the assembly room to the different class rooms, painfully l3'549l'?fit conscious of the fact that we were only miserable, lonely little Freshmen. We looked up to the big Seniors with the feeling of reverence, for all the Seniors knew just when and where to find their classes and often would direct us when we got confused. Th first few weeks of those unaccustomed studies seemed very dif- ficult for us but soon the difficulties seemed to grow lighter and the tasks easier and all the bashfulness disappeared. The teachers seemed to possess kind personalities and our minds were no longer mere machines. New friends made the hours pass quickly and soon we felt as much at home as the Seniors. The other classes began to' realize that the boys and girls who would make the "class of l9l 7" were not any greener or more bashful than they themselves had been. They began to sit up and take notice of us, to seek our advice and follow our plans. Now that same bunch of students forms the noted "Class of l9l7." We, the members of that illustrious class had not yet dis- covered ourselves on that September morning in 1913. Soon the football season came and our class sent two strong players to the team. The team made the best record ever that season. Our two men did some fast and skillful playing that helped greatly. One of the fastest players in the basket ball team was a freshman boy. Our class elected Scott lVlcCafferty, class president: Marian Franklin, vice president: Dorothy Hayden, Secretary and Harold Har- mon, treasurer.. Days and weeks flew like minutes and soon February had come and the Freshman class would be represented by a reading and a short story in the Inter-Class contest in March. So Marian Franklin was chosen for the reading to compete with Blodwyn Jones, a Sophomore and Ruth Snyder for the short story to 'compete with Ethel Warren, a Senior. Both of our opponents were noted for much talent so the enthusiasm of our class ran high. Finally the long-planned-for night came and the auditorium was crowded with enthusiastic pupils and their no less enthusiastic friends. The freshman window was decorated in blue and gold, our class colors, and a large electric sign reading "Freshmen" All the members of the program acquitted themselves admirably. The contest was very close. We were very proud of our reader who gave her selection in a pleasing manner, only losing to the Sophomores 'by a small margin. The Fresh- men were wild with joy when it was announced that they had won the short story against such a formidable opponent as the Seniors. We all thoroughly enjoyed the banquet that followed. Time sped swiftly on and one afternoon in May, Mr. Blue handed out the grade cards and we were Sophomores! When we retumed to school the following September we found another bunch of boys and girls who are now the "Freshies." Our class is composed of forty-two members this year who have been doing very effective work in the classroom. The Sophomores believe that variety is the spice of life, so at one of our class meetings we changed our class colors to red and green. We contributed four men to the football team, whose work was highly praised. There was one Sophomore, on the boys' basket ball teamg also one on the girls' basket ball team. For our contestants in the Inter-Class contest we have chosen Pauline Edwards for the reading and Scott McCafferty and Ralph Williams for the debate. We are all boosting our contestants and hoping that they may be victorious. A Since the above writing we won a victory in the Inter-Class con- test by defeating the Freshmen in the reading. For two days before the contest, three Sophomore flags waved over the High School Building. President iResignedl .......

Our class was represented by several athletes who attained the position of regulars on the various High School Teams, and these stars won fame for themselves and their class: The class officers have managed very dextrously the class buiness, and under the steady guidance of President John Cochran we are giving the other 'classes a merry chase. , We have sent able contestants to the front to battle for -the Honors of the Inter-Class contest and we hope for a sweeping victory, for, "True worth wins."

An excellent- schedule was tifllwga . . prepared by the untirmg efforts of Manager Walter Agin. The first game, Upper Sandusky vs. Ada High was won by the enormous score, IO3 to 0. The second game was an excellent exhibition of good football, and the Ada High "Gridders" were successful. Score, Scott High, Toledo, 26, Ada High School 33. The third game was Bucyrus vs. Ada at Bucyrus. The field was in poor condition on account of continued rains, but as usual Ada High came out victorious. Score 58 to 0. Findlay came to Ada with a team that out- weighed the local team at least fifteen pounds per man, but nevertheless Findlay was the fourth victim of defeat at the hands of the A. H. S. Score, Ada 33, Findlay 0. The fifth team to meet their "Waterloo" by the efforts of the A. H. S. "Gridders" was Delaware High. Score, D. H. S. 0, A. H. S. 50. Summing up the five games that the A. H. S. had contested in, it looked like a "clean sweepn to champion- ship. But Alas! Not so. On the bright morning of October 31, the gallant Ada warriors accompanied by a crowd of "Royal Rootersn and the Ada Boys' City Band invaded Fostoria on her own battle- ground. Enthusiasm! Confidence! These terms do not ex- press it. Ada High supporters and rooters from Findlay, Bucyrus and Ada thronged the side lines, shouting intense hopes of victory for the Blue and Gold. But no! Their expectations fell short, Ada was swamped to the tune of 41 to 0, much to the chagrin of the Ada supporters. Let it be added that the officiating was fair and square. Of course this was a tremendous blow to' the Adaians, but nevertheless the royal supporters are clinging to the meager hopes of overcoming that gigantic defeat in the future. The next game was played with Bowling Green. A hard battle was expected, but owing to the conditions prevail- ing at the end of the third quarter the game was forfeited to Bowling Green at a score of l to 0, although the previous score had stood I2 to l2. Our next game was played with Vfaite -I-ligh. We went to Toledo this time with brighter hopes and greater expecta- tions. But alas! By the end of the first half i-t seemed to be a complete runaway for the Toledo team. Nevertheless. through the excellent advice of leiut. Hill, we gained ten points and the game ended I2 to IO with Waite in the lead. The next Saturday the team started out again. This time to oppose a team that had been all season getting in shape "to trim that Ada bunch." But their efforts were of no avail for the final score stood, Lima l3, Ada High l9. The team now began to get back their old-time spirit and enthusiasm for the next Thursday on Thanksgiving day the Ada High School team ended their l9l4 football career with a record breaking game with Defiance. Score, Defiance High 0, Ada High 49. Thus the season ended with 357 points in our favor to 90 points in the opponents' favor. We attribute our sterling victories and financial success to the support given by citizens and students: but most of all to Leiut. Hill, fFrog Hill, to all football fansl, and Ralph Mertz. Hill is known as a gentleman, a true sportsman, and a lover of football. He is a "Sticker" and is admired by all the "Fellows" The team can never repay his servicesg he is surely the best authority on football that ever assisted the A. H. S. He starred at half-back for O. S. U. in l902. He captained West Point in I906g he came out regular every evening although he was assured of nothing financiallyg he just wanted to see us succeed. It takes a real, for sure, true, sports- man to coach a team just for charity. Hill's kindness will always be remembered by the A. H. S. Ralph lVlertz must not go unmentionedg he too, has been a great factor in our successg last year he had the honor of coaching Ada High School to North Western Championship. Mr. Raymond, fbetter known as "Bugs"J, Northern's efficient coach, has greatly aided the High School teamg we readily recognized his good authority on football. Mr. Stage and Mr. Blue are adored bythe team, because they "have the spirit." The Ada High School Band has surely did its part in "stirring up" the "once dead enthusiasm" of Ada. But the majority of High School pupils have yet to learn what real, true support is. If the High School as a whole, had the spirit Supt. Stage and Prin. Blue have, Ada High would never have an "Athletic debt hanging on." So wake up! students, come to the aid of your athletics, Ada High is on the map! It is recognized by all of the big teamsg "so come out of that dead state" and get some Hspizzerinktumf' fthe long word for "DEPUT- THE TEAM f George Botkin is the shining light of the team, having played a wonderful game season. Holman, Spellman, and Florida have played the game of their lives. Corbett played a good steady game all season and was the backbone of the line. Main broke into football this year and is "making good." Stambaugh and Davis are right there. Clum and Cum- mans are performing wonderfully. Danner, Sells, Jamison and Fields are surely doing their part. A word for the Subs. Don't be discouraged, a man has to be persistent -to "Make Good" in football. The "Gridiron Group" of 1915 will need your services. A word of thanks must be installed for the business men of Ada this year for their support has been wonderful. By the aid of Mr. Duglass, Mr. Neal, and Mr. F rank Allen, together with our doctor, Scott lVlcCafferty, Ada High has fared well. THE LINE UP fSee Picture, Left to Right-Russell Clum, L.

H. S. Boys' Basket Ball HE A. H. S. basket ball team has had a fine schedule this year, having played eleven games in all, eight of which were out of town. The team, under the direc- tion of Coach Routson, has done fine work. Owing to the fact that our score book was lost in the middle of the season we are unable to state the season's score, also the score of the individual players, but i-t is admitted that Spellman was the star of the season. The team lost six of the eleven games, but we are ahead in points as the games we won were won on a larger margin and the games that were lost were lost on a small margin. We played the following High Schools on their own floor: Paulding, Lima, Napoleon, Defiance, Antwerp, Bluff- ton, and Bucyrus. The teams we played on our own floor were Bluffton, Findlay, and the Adelphian Literary Society of the O. N. U.

Don't for a moment think of i-t in this light for to make this paper a success, we had only to observe where brains were leaking and so fix our paper to catch the drip. But for a word of apology. Psychology is a word often used to explain the mean- ing of something we don't understand after it has been ex- plained, and which, if we did understand, would not do us any good. The art of writing jokes is like psychology. It means some one who hasn't the ability to succeed at it tries to reduce to. mental formula the method of those who like Luke Mc- Luke, and Josh Wise do succeed at it. Therefore, like the policeman after the fight who comes around after the deed is done, swinging his club, looking wise all the while, these jokes are mere smatterings of the real stuff which happen in school. Speaking of cops reminds me, the village of Ada can well be proud that they have such a cop, detective, criminalogist, in the form of 1"l'len" Tremains. This famous man carefully and with much strategy captured alive four Junior gunmen, but although he may appear the greatest hero on earth to the Freshmeng a Junior passing with a Senior sees only an average sized man, while the Senior has to look twice before he can seen anything at all. REVELATION X-25-47 Now it came to pass on a certain week as prophesied by Blue, that those of the High School made ready a great cele- bration and feast. And it also came to pass on the same week that those of the Second Order, made ready their plans con- cerning the floating of their Banner from the highest pinnacle of the School Temple. But William the Bold, being informed, forthwith, of -their action looked with anger upon it, and together with the male members of his faculty, held council. saying among them- selves. Mwhy should this wicked deed be done?" "There upon they made a decree saying, 'Beware all ye Orders of us and the law! ' " Accordingly -there rose up one "Doc" student of William the Bold, who said, "We are not able alone to do this thingy therefore let us hire mercenaries, and under cover of night hav- ing drawn several of our warriors of the Second Order to the base of the Temple by stealth let us send the mercenaries up by -the back way to the pinnacle while we guard both the front and the rear." Thereupon, having consulted the Prophets, and having made a sacrifice to Preparius the Elder, they succeeded in sending the mercenaries up by a secret passage to the pin- nacle. By the middle of the last watch as day was break- ing the dreadful deed was done. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Now as the following day passed by the members of the Third Order did council among themselves, saying: "Why should this haughty and overbearing people be allowed to float their banner before our very eyes?" , Thereupon, being faint in heart of scaling the high and dangerous pinnacle decreed among themselves that certain warriors of this Order should arm themselves to the teeth and having drawn all their warriors to the base of the Temple by a pretense of battle proceed to storm the Temple. There- fore, the warriors of the Third Order did put on their coat of mail, helmets, and greaves and taking their rifles did assail the Temple. Thereupon, "Doc" and his trusty band of warriors re- turning -to the held of battle and finding their supplies in the hands of the enemy said among themselves: "What shall we do?" Then William the Bold, who stood head and shoulders above his fellows, arose and said: "Let me exhort you, oh. childreng hear me: Let us cease firing and end the trouble." And -those of the Fourth Order did cheer the noble William and all, as one man, did hail him a Henry Clay. Thereupon, William also sought mercenaries who did gird their loins, and in the middle watch, notwithstanding the steep- ness of the roof, seized upon the awful banner and did cast it under foot, saying, "Dust thou art, to dust returnethf' And the members of the different orders did bow before the great William the Bold, and did sue for peace. Then there was great joy among the members of all the orders and the maidens sang to the victors with light hearts. And the evening and the morning were the second day. Now it came to pass. in the beginning of the fourth day that a great cloud arose in the heavens which brewed further trouble for all the orders, and about the middle of the first watch Tremain, the mighty, did appear at the gate of the Temple bearing papers of a higher and more statelier order. Thereupon four members of the Third Order did bow themselves and endeavor to humble themselves but it availeth them nothing, for Tremain was still with them. His hand and his grip. Thereupon 'the warriors of the Third Order again put on their coats of mail, helmets and greaves and leaving their spear behind advanced with measured tread toward the Mayor. And it came to pass that they were made to testify before the elders and made to pay 5 dollars and 95 cents. A proverb is known today among the sons of Ada High that reads thus: Verily I say unto you, stronger is he of the big order who persecuteth and fmeth than he who scaleth the pinnacle and hangeth or taketh a High School Banner. Huge Joke "Wl1at! You say you never heard nothin' about that good joke what was played on two of them High School Boys that you see galloping to and fro around this here town trying to edicate themselves so as to live without workin'? Wal, for the land sakes, jest come right here and set on this box and rest awhile and I'll tell ye all about that ther joke, but don't you ever tell it for -these boys are still swearing vengence on those that played ther trick. This joke was played on that smart aleck of a Senior president of this year's graduating class. and his good for nothing "Pal" who wuz noted prin- cipally for his orating on these fool Inter Class Contests what causes so much trouble and 55.95 and costs and 'all such things. You don't know them? Sure and you do! This smarty Senior president that I am going to tell ye about is a tall, lean sapling, kinda deplected lookin' with his specks and what thinks he is the whole cheese in and about the High School. The young fellow always imagined he had many charming loves but he allus had some sort of bad luck in keepin' and gettin' 'em to care for him. And that "Pal," why you know him well for you would always remember him if once you ever se'ed him. He is kinda fat like, looks like a butcher. Sure I thought you knowed him. Wal, he too thinks he is a ladies' man, but somehow most of the ladies dis- agree with him on that subject. He wuz as I have said before a splendid orator and it has often been sed if the class of 'l 5 could have had a few more like him it would have been noted fore somethin' besides overcome with love. But to go on and relate to you about this terrible sad story connected with these here boys. Wal, yes I will tell you all about itg just sit a spell longer and wait until I get started. As I was remarkin' these chaps never tried to go with the gals a lot, but they al- ways had a hankerin' that they could go with almost any gal in this here -town, and in fact in their Senior year they actually condescended to take one or two around some, but they allus bragged they never bet on any strange thing and got "stung." No, they never got "stung" they allus "stung" the gals first. Wal, now I will spit, and tell you how by a deceitful tragedy these boys received a jolt and the hole school voted them the booby prize. This tall, smarty fellow always seemed to have a job clerking somewhere where there was no work to mention but big pay, and so he put in his' -time at a book emporium across from the Ohio Northern University what you read about in the Dapers when a building burns down or "Prexy" gets a hand out. Wal, as I was saying were this young fellow works there is a krokino board placed there for the benefit of those college fire side athletes' that are not so awful persistent in gettin' an edication. Wal one evening sometime in February this tall slim fellow and this short dutchy fellow were playing their IL 1 daily game of krokino. As they were busily engaged in play- ing the silence of the room was broken by the "Ting a ling" of the telephone. Wal Frank he up and grabbed the receiver and the following conversation tuk place. "Varsity Book and Drug Store." "Yes this is Frank talking." "Come down to Bartlemeier's? Wfiy, I don't know, you see I work until 8 P. M." "At 8 o'clock then, sure I can come, but is it a dress affair?" - "It is, alright, and you say to bring someone along for your lady friend too?" fWe will be only too glad to go won't we Paul?J We will be there prompt at 8 o'clock sure. Good bye!" Then my friend that ther phone fairly shook that store foundations, the Senior slamed that receiver on the hook so durn quick that central was almost deafened. A wise bene- ficial smile broke over his face as he calmly announced to the still wondering "Pal," "Ah, we're going down -to Bartle- meier's." You see this Bartlemeier place my friend was a parsons home and this parson had a perty good l-o-o-k-i-n' darter what all the boys wuz stuck on, but wuz somehow linked to a red headed jay bird who sang in the parsons quire. Wal now you can't blame these here boys for bein' all fussed about this affair so they called the game at once. All was hustle and busel as they both argued and mapped out the difficult task which lay before them. "By George, Paul, all is lost for my collars are all in the laundry, oh, great is my misfortune! What will I do?" "Aw, come on shut up the store and let's beat it for Rhonemusf' Suiting the action to the word the two boys shot out of the store and down the street to Rhonemus, it was a narrow escape but not in vain for as he was just closing he was sud- denly startled by the appearance of two excited customers. "Two MM collars, any style, but get them quick." "Here's your 2 bitsg don't take time to wrap them," and in like manner many such preparations were made. Prompt at 8 o'clock my friend these boys were seated in the parsons parlor, but oh! how changed -their appearance from that of a short time previous.

Such obiects attract lightning very much quicker than objects closer to the ground. Thelma Stopher fvery nervously glancing at her beloved Ross stuck her hand in E.lliot's facel: Is it so dangerous as you say to stand near tall people? Elliot: "Mr. Florida, explain the difference between physical pitch and musical pitch Florida: Musical pitch is determined by the number of vibrations per second, while physical pitch is the black sub- stance they put on the street. Elliot: Very good Mr. Florida, I see you have a good general knowledge of things. Now where would you go to find micro-bees? Florida: Only in the slums, my dear sir. Stage: "ML Mercer name one advantage of country life!" Mercer: "Lots more to eat." fThe last named is very important to Mr. Mercerj Stage: Do many farmers own automobiles? Mercer: Very few: most of them have Fords. QUp- roarious laughter., Stage: Mr. Mercer, l wish you wouldn't make such hairspli-tting distinctions. l.et's have better attention: this is not so funny. Mr. Carey, if you will put away that plaything and give me your undivided attention I can get along better, your grades haven't been the best the last few months. Now to proceed: Miss Mertz what can you say in regard to city life? . Miss Mertz: VVhen a village can have two trains a day and three blacksmith shops and a hose cart it -then becomes a city. Stage: Correct, very good, now class you see Miss Mertz is well infonned. Now if I was in doubt about any of you girls I would pop the question to you at once. fGeneral ha ha.D Very well boys laugh, bu-t I can do it with a great deal of grace for I have done the like before. fMore laugh- ter.j Now boys I say again, you may think that is funny, but when you come up to that point in your life, you will think of it in a more serious way. But now to go on, Mr. Clum, what is home rule? Mr. Clum: When a man comes home drunk and his wife hits him over the head with a broom, that' is a home rule. C O 'M I N G ! !

Mathews promptly replied with a sour voice, "No, we've been waiting forty-five minutes." There- upon she haughtily replied, "This is a self-serving restaurant." Of course the Annual Board about this time, -to be plainly distinguished, had to be viewed with a microscope. l J.
