COMMITTEE ON COMMERCE
Dec. 18, 1925
Senior Class of 1924, A. H. S.,
In extending hearty congratulations on the
successful completion of your high school course
I venture to express the earnest hope that you
will go on with your educational work, preferably
in Ohio Northern University right at your very
Do not stop-get all the knowledge and all
the training you possibly can-you will need it.
As I think of Ada, memories come trooping
thick and fast and a mist floats before my eyes.
To Ada and its people, I owe so much-they have
been so kind and generous to me and mine-we can
never forget you.
As I escorted Senator Fess down the aisle
of the Senate the day he was sworn in as Senator
we both thought and spoke of Dr. Lehr and Ada.
Work hard, be optomistic, be courageous,
keep the faith and be true to Ada traditions.

Students of Ada High School,
Few towns of the size of Ada are so well
known throughout the country as the educational
center in Northwestern Ohio.
To it have been drawn the first line of
intellectual life in America. This infusion has
given a new vigor to all that part of your state.
No one institution in the town has responded more
wholesomelyto the task of preparing for the fields
constantly opening than the Ada High School. It
is the open door into the wider field of general
Its record supplies the best part of the
history of the town.

'GHE aggressive spirit of the Board of Education has raised the educational stand-
ards of the Ada Public Schools to a plane of equality with the state's best schools.
By vigorous financing and by securing the passage of the three mill school levy, the
Board has been able to provide for the retiring of the bonded indebtedness which has
been overshadowing the school system for over two decades.
Extensive improvements have recently been made in both the north and south
buildings, and every opportunity for the broadening of the school program has been ef-
Considering that the Board of Education is purely a public spirited organization
and that their recompense is "Thank You," and more often unjust criticism, we must
not fail to appreciate the personal interest which these citizens take in the welfare of
The Board is to be congratulated upon the Faculty which it has secured for Ada
High. Superintendent Crawford has not only proven himself an excellent school man
but his sterling Christian character has had a marked influence upon the high school
pupils and upon the town and community. We have always found him working ear-
nestly for the welfare of the school and the student body. Hand in hand with Mr.
Crawford is the spirit and attitude of Principal Kessler, and likewise the entire Faculty.

The seniors are taught by the "Sup.",
He makes our poor brains loop the loopg
Its a wonder Begad
He don't drive us mad
Those big words would make Bryan droop.
Our civics is taught by the "Prin.",
The tests that he gives are a sin:
We could argue all day
Till we all passed away
Ilut Kessler would never give in.
Miss Bossert is steadfast and stern.
And even when we've time to burn:
We must walk the chalk
And refrain from all talk
But that's something we never can learn.
A funny professor is "Mose,"
He don't wear long hair or queer clothes:
But that fellow can speak
French, German or Greek
There is no limit to what that guy knows.
Miss Jackson has such a nice voice.
It might cause our hearts to rejoice:
But I am sorry to say
It is not used that way
Because Ivy don't give us our choice.
Miss Hunter is no giant. you bet,
llut the valuable things you get:
Are always quite small
They're not big at all
So there's lots of hope for her yet.
Prof. McElwain runs Farm and Shop,
He keeps all his boys on the hop:
The look of that place
Is sure a. disgrace
For they lost both their brooms and the mop.
Miss CraWford's a friend of J. Caesar,
That guy was a funny old geezerg
But Vergil you bet
Is much worse yet
He sure knocks your grades in the beezer.
Miss Byard likes singing so well.
She gets all us fellows in dutch:
We sing at our best
Till we burst out our vest
But the faculty do not like such.
There was a young teacher named Neven,
He was a fine teacher, by heaven:
But on every test day
He always would say
"I always fail ten out of 'leven."
The Sophies all love Mrs. Bell.
They say that she treats them so Well!
No lessons, they say
They frolic all day
That kind of a life must be swell.

'Cthe Challenge Go Che Seniors
"And when I became a man I put away childish things."
To the Senior, graduation brings Commencement, Commencement of what?
That is the question-that is the challenge. Perhaps we shall take advantage
of our splendid opportunity to attain a more liberal education in the great universities
of the nation. Perhaps we shall 'register in the University of Hard Knocks and take up
our course on the world's proving ground.
Wherever we go, we shall find the test of courage to far surpass those tests in lit-
erature which we so dreaded in school days. We shall find it harder to prove that we
are genuine men and women than to prove any of those propositions in geometry.
Truly, the road of success is not crowded, nor is it the route of ease. Our atti-
tude is our only stumbling block, and we alone can forge our way.
That is the challange to us,-Seniors of the Class of 1924-will noble accom-
plishment and righteous achievement impress our footprints on the sands of time? Will
we respond to the great call for real men and real Women?

James Pumphrey, collapsed in his seat just three minutes after the last bell, waving
weakly a blue piece of paper. A despairing look from Mrs. Bell, who began to enlarge
upon the evils of blue slips, lowering of deportment and just as the climax of her
lecture is reached, Alice Allen floated gracefully into the room followed by Ruth Mus-
tard. Such it is on blue Monday morning and the Juniors hereby decree that to avoid
the evils of blue slips, school should begin later on Monday mornings, thus allowing
the students a little more recuperation from their week-end frolics before taking up
again their daily grind.
Began day by receiving another little heart to heart talk from Mrs. Bell. The
cause of this was talking-the result silence and deep study by all members of the class
except "Fairy" McGinnis, who took time out to power her nose. Had a few short, re-
freshing exams in which all Juniors participated except a few who decided to catch up
some of their lost sleep. Upon being told by Miss Bossert that such actions would
cause the lowering of their grades, Turlow Lownnan murmured sleepily something
about not having any deportment grade left and how could you take something from
nothing thereby being allowed to snooze undisturbed.
Quite a few new faces discovered in the throng of 56 smiling Juniors.
Officers elected Leland States, President, Robert Wilson, Vice President: Clar-

O, ye Freshmen, and Juniors, and Seniors,
With many a bonnie lad and lass,
Ye cannot rival for one hour,
The Sophomores' bright and brilliant class. E
O, Sophomores, truly are ye favored of the Gods! To be a Senior, it is to be
sedate, deliberate, and profound, for example ye grave and solemn Benjamin Smith.
Ah, yes, Seniors, the cruel, relentless world demands all thy material wealth. To be
a. Senior is to ,be at the heights of High School glory, to sit upon the pinnacle, crowned
with awe, a brand new diploma for a sceptre, only to fall among the most humble of
meek seekers of college wisdom.
And ye, O most unfortunate Juniors, must from your own slender purse enter-

tain the Seniors with a beautiful banquet. Ye, the Juniors, pay. Ye must wonder in
the bewildering labyrinth of chemistry and parallelopipeds.
To be a Freshman is to be disregarded, to be considered juvenile and immature.
But ye, O most fortunate Sophomores, are blessed. Upon thy youthful shoulders
rest not the cares of an unhappy world. You are revered by the Freshmen, respected by
the Juniors, while your sister classmen the Seniors are such that well may you be
proud of them.
Of such ,great importance are ye, illustrious Sophomores, that the two luxurious
rooms have been conferred upon thee, the coolest and most refreshing in winter, and
most delightfully warm in late spring and early autumn. During zero weather, room
ten was the most re-animating room, in fact, so much that during the second period
the reinvigorating atmosphere so influenced the Caesar class that the usually saga-
cious C?J silence that predominated was broken by the most unearthly clamor. Every-
one became strangely loquacious, all demanded the honor of reciting both the review
and the advance assignment. So fiercely did they contend for the distinction that Miss
Crawford sent the class to the assembly in despair. By the way, the favorite indoor
sport of the 'Caesar class, after the five minute bell rings, is stalling for time,
Our other room is most unusual, it alone has a moist and musically dripping
shower-when the roof leaks. The scenery that may be viewed from your window
shows purple mountain crags and sapphire blue lakes-if a mirage should occur-it
hasn't yet. Otherwise a limitless expanse of blue sky and brown earth. A majestic
mountain of coal inspires and uplifts.
When thy home room teacher leaves for an instant, no head is raised, only an
intense silence prevails, so intent upon the quest of the desired diploma at the end
of an illusive rainbow of a high school education are ye.
Thy class is not a class of frivolous Epicureans, but a class of retiring, meek,
fun-fearing lads who would rather face the terrors of the office than throw one little
piece of chalk in English. And chewing gum, ah, that important industry would not be,
did they depend upon the Sophomore class to chew it. A Sophomore chew gum?
Never! 1 N
Truly have ye, Sophomores, contributed a most excellent player of manly sports,
Richard Long, to the most seemly games of basketball and football. Thy class team---
all honorable men, defended gloriously thy title in the interclass games and brought
victory to thy folds.
From thy ranks have gone forth the following to hold high the banner of the
Sophomore class in a contest with those of other classes: one silver-tongued orator,
Fred Florida, a lady fair, Grace McGuffey, with most excellent originality to make
men laugh and weep, and your most honorable Suzanne Lantz to delight and amaze.
Sophomores are ye, and fortunate would ye be, if Sophomores ye might re-

What were you doing after the accident?
Scraping up an old acquaintance."
Mr. Crawford--"Who were the four horsemen?"
M, Lay-"Paul Revere, Teddy Roosevelt, Jesse James, and Barney Google."

Extracts from the Diary of a Sopb
By Melissa Hopkins
Oh dear, diary, just think, school begins tomorrow. I dread it. Between you and
me. I think school is a nuisance. I know I'll fail in Caesar, and the thought of Ge-
ometry fairly makes me shiver, and Biology, ugh, all those perfectly awful twisting
worms. I know the faculty will consist of horrid old wiser-than-beings. I hate school,
and I love getting up late, and reading frivolous novels, and eating candy, and just doing
nothing. Oh, dear.
It's begun, school has, with a rainy old day, I'm just miserable. In the words of
Longfellow, "All the world is a stage." Well diary, old thing, for the next nine
months yours truly is going to be the leading lady, staging a duel with the well known
dragon,-learning. Lady Lucille Keith staged a collision, very realistic, and the people
inhthe other car said their parts distinctly and without any hesitation. I don't like
sc oo .
Diary, it's October, and only eight more months of movies and really interesting
books. Goodness! This school's the deadest thing, you can't even chew gum. Just im-
agine, as if we didn't need it for our nerves. Such wonderful weather, and we are
forced to waste it these golden days in increasing gray matter.
Another month gone, diary, November, only seven more months. Why aren't
all classes history classes. I love history, its so,-so thrilling about Alexander, how
he conquered Gaul, and when the old Athenians built the pyramids. The other day we
had a test and one bright member of our class wrote that one of the reasons for the
downfall of Rome was the infultration of germs,
Stars, diary, we have only six more months, a.in't it a grand and glorious
feelin'? Talking about feelin's, imagine mine when my vanity case rolls across the
floor during Miss Crawford's assembly. Oh, man! Christmas and vacation, will it
It?s January, diary, and I've made oceans of perfectly grand resolutions. I'm
going to be an angel. I'm going to study and study and study, and not write a note, or
even whisper once, and I'll be so good that I'll die and people will cry and say "Poor
Melissa, she was just too good for this world. If only the rest were like her! She
got one hundred in deportment every month." Won't that be just-oh, spiffy? Oh,
diary the funniest thing happened today, Miss Bosselt looked at Charles Moore and
said, "Charles, you may go to the office," a pause, "for the Literary Digests ."
I just abhor, detest, loathe, and dislike February, I can't make it any stronger,
it's just tests, and tests, and more tests. I heard the best leap year story today, it
goes something like th1s:
Miss Jackson: "May I propose-"
Mr. Stauffer Qexpectantlyjz "Yes."
Miss Jackson: "That you get your lunch somewhere else today, the gas is low
and we cannot cook."
Geneva Danner came into room ten today and said, "I want three -girls to go
with me to the tournament and I don't care if they're boys."
It's the first of March, are we down hearted? I'll say we are. I'm never going
to be good again. I played and played and we didn't win. We're studying that beastly
"As You Like It" now, only most of us don't. I wish Orlando would marry Rosalind
and .be done with it. He'd be some sheik, wouldn't he? 1 wish it were spring.
"Keither" and "Chic" waited for the Freshmen to march out, I wonderfwhy? I wish
school didn't begin till ten o'clock, I don't care, I feel as unconnected as these sentences,
I'm never going to write another line in you, there!

freshmen are jfreshmen
Dear Ada High:
We are Freshmen this year, and proud of it. Perhaps you've seen us somewhere
about the H. S. building, every day, but have you really noticed what a spry looking
bunch of greenhorns we are? Maybe you've wondered what you would do without us,
and maybe you haven't. Nevertheless, we're going to tell you. You would just natur-
ally go perfectly punk, for we will be Seniors in '27 and, of course, there can be no
high school without Seniors.
But, speaking of the present, what would all the practice teachers from the
college do without us? The quiet, docile Freshman class is like a tonic to them and
they develop into marvelous teachers, overnight.
The only things we don't like about being Freshmen, are the remarks that the
upper-classmen make about us. Why, all we heard for the first week was, "Hello
1924 , l a
Me :IlllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII J-A ' IIlIIllIllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllIIUlf' '

Greenies," "How-do-Freshies," from every other class in the High School. Even the
Sophomores were rather hard on us. QWe suppose they were SENIORS last yearj.
But maybe we deserve it, for really, "The eye sees not itself but by reflection from
some other thing."
Now, we're going to tell you about the most important points in our career as
Freshmen. After we had been at school a week or so, and had finally succeeded in
getting our class rooms so in mind that .we could have located them in the dark, the
first chapel morning arrived. The rest of the High School gave the Freshmen a sam-
ple of what they could do when it came to yelling. Of course we were a bit surprised
but with our own cheer leader, Paul Wertheimer, alias Tackhammer, we soon became
very efficient on that line,
We liked our teachers from the very first and I guess they liked us, too, for
they gave us the nicest, longest lessons. Soon it was Christmas time and like all good
little Freshmen, we had a good time during vacation. But it wasn't as satisfactory as
it might have been, for when we returned, lo! there were the exams staring at us
from every classroom.
The Freshmen boys organized a basket ball team, which even succeeded in de-
feating the Sophomore class team, twice. Mildred Battels, one of our class mates, suc-
ceeded in making the girls' team, which is really doing well for a Freshman.
About the first of February our lessons began to get harder and harder. We
murdered Julius Caesar in a most horrible manner, in the English class room. In
Science we gave scientific speeches about diamonds and stars and planets and Mars.
And we even discussed whether or not the moon was made of green cheese.
When it came time to select our most capable Freshman to represent us in the
Interclass contest, we chose Ruth Dailey for the short story. She is really a second
Webster when it comes to using large, tongue twisting words, and a second Hawthorne,
when it comes to writing the most interesting stories. Then for the reading, we select-
ed Mary McLaughlin, or Smiles. She is the most delightful little girl in the class, to
say nothing of being a good elocutionist. When it comes to the oration, we were stumped
until someone suggested Mark Warren, the grave, the eloquent, to represent us with
his glowing words and phrases.
Thus, the weeks and months flew by until finally the end of the term draws
near. We'll admit that we've had a wonderful time while we were Freshmen, even
though there were a few cactus and prickly pears to prick us. But the path was not
really so rough as it might have been, for you see we had Mrs. Bell to cheer us up
when we felt discouraged. She was like a rose growing along a dusty wayside, that
persistently cheers the weary traveler onward. And Miss Hunter, well, she was so
jolly and full of fun herself that we couldn't keep from getting into mischief if she
was near. Miss Crawford was sometimes rather stern, but a golden heart may be
covered by a bit of iron. The science teachers deserve a great deal of credit for being
so patient with such a class of dull Freshmen as we are.
Now, dear Ada Hi, would you really mind very much if we got a bit sentimental?
It wasn't love at first sight, but we really think a lot of you now. It seems that there
is no other high school in the state, quite like you.
Well, our big sister, the Juniors, tells us that it's time we were retiring, so we'll
remind you that we'll be back next September again, which brings this rambling letter
to a close. Yours forever,

THE GHOST OF A SMILE
1'd like to see just the ghost of a smile,
In each long mile of the wayg
For it would make me think of the smiles I've seen
That helped my fears to allay.
For instead of hob-goblins to curdle our blood,
They're signposts to help us remember
Even though of the frowns there may be a flood
A smile sails back on the flood to the sender.
Then let us remember that smiles do not die,
But live in the heart of the receivers.
Oh, come, let us smile, 'stead of heaving a sigh.
And let not our smiles be too meager.
The day after the night Paul Wertheimer took Gladys Cotner to the lecture:
Curious Freshie fto Gladysjz Whatever possessed you to walk so fast, going
Gladys tsweetlyjz Oh, we wanted to get off Main street as soon as possible.
Algebra Teacher: A and B are just like cats and dogs. You can't add cats and
dogs and get cats.
Charles Runser: Yes, but you can add dogs and pigs and get "weenies."
Someone had just said that lard was rendered from the fat of hogs, when the
peaceful silence of the Science room was broken by a terrible ear-splitting whoop from
"Why Paul, what's the matter?" inquired Mr. Stauffer.
"Lard, from hogs?" exclaimed that incredulous boy, "why I always thought they
got lard from beef."
Someone heard Lorene McElroy say that cotton grew on sheep.
"Will I get 100W If I don't make any mistakes?" inquired the perfectly innocent
little Gerald Cribley of Miss Hunter.
Miss Crawford: What are the principal parts of pigs?
Lloyd Guthrie: Pigo, pigere, squeely, gruntum.
"So he insulted you by offering you a drink. What did you do?"
"I swallowed the insult."
Mrs. Bell-"What do you mean by saying Benedict Arnold was a janitor?"
H. Shelly-"In the book it says that after his exile he spent the rest of his
life in abasementf'
Miss Byard-"What are pauses ?"
Fireworks-"They grow on cats."

fthe llnter Glass Contest
Behold! The most interesting event of the year-the Interclass of '24. This is
the fifteenth year that Ada High School has had its Interclass Contest and Banquet,
and the affair was a glorious success from beginning to end,
The old auditorium with its spectacular window and balcony signs, and its beau-
tiful stage setting seemed to express the enthusiasm of the occasion. This enthusiasm
was furthered by appropriate cheers from the different classes.
The High School Orchestra entertained the gathering crowd, and played an over-
ture as the opening number of the program. The other musical numbers were furnish-
ed by the High School Chorus, and special selections by some of its members.
Each class was represented by a short story and reading. The readings were
given by Dorothy Worl, who represented the Seniorsg Dorothy Moorman, the Juniors:
Suzanne Lantz, the Sophomoresg and Mary McLaughlin, the Freshmen. The short
stories were given by Dorothy Whitworth, who read Elizabeth 'Clapper's story for the
Seniors, T1'ola McCurdy, for the Juniors, Grace McGuffey, for the Sophomores, and
Ruth Dailey for the Freshmen. The Juniors and Seniors contested the debate. Robert
McCoppin, James Brewer and Margaret Newton, alternate, representing the Seniors:
Robert Wilson, Joe Brecheisen, and Lucy Hayden, alternate, for the Juniors.
The Freshmen and Sophomores contested for the oration, Fred Florida, rep-
resenting the Sophomores, and Mark Warren the Freshmen. The Winners of the con-
test were as follows: Dorothy Moorman, Junior, readingg Trola McCurdy, Junior, short

A new feature of the Interclass of '24 was the presentation of a beautiful silver
loving cup awarded by the Class of '14. The Juniors were the first to have the honor
of holding the cup for one year and to have their names engraved upon it.
The Senior 'Class distinguished themselves by successfully staging one of the
most original and clever stunts that has ever been presented at an Ada High Contest.
Ztbe ilnter Glass JBanquet
The Interclass Banquet was held at the Methodist Church. The room with its
decorations of purple and gold and the tables with their flowers and candles made a
magnificent banquet hall. lt seemed a fitting place to serve such guests as the
Faculty, Board of Education, and the High School Students. After a sumptuous din-
ner served by the ladies of the church the banqueters were entertained by toasts.
Prof. C. H. Freeman of the Board of Education was toastmaster. Mr. Crawford
gave a toast "When found, make note of", Mr. Morehead "And thereby hangs a tail"g
Mr. Stambaugh "Tis a wise saying", Mr. Stauffer "I will a round, unvarnished tale de-
liver"g Miss 'Crawford "Be of good cheer," said Diogenes "I see land", Florence Barnes
gave a toast to the Freshmen, "My salad days when I was green in judgementf' Jesse
Long a toast to the Sophomores, "So wise, so young, they say do ne'er live long," Ruth
Van Schoik a toast to the Juniors, "Time ripens all things, No man is born wise,"
Richard Long to the Seniors "I am monarch of all I survey. My right there is none to
dispute," Ralplh Snyder to, the Faculty, "O wad some power the giftie gie us, To see
ourse yes as it ers see us.
f 3 ' '
The social activities started off with plenty of pep and enthusiasm. The social
gatherings as well as the different clubs and organizations helped to establish the in-
terest shown by the pupils in school this year.
At the first of the year a High School party was held at the gymnasium for the
purpose of creating a sufficient amount of pep to meet our first football opponents.
The committee arranged for many clever stunts to be given by the different classes in
form of a contest. Judges were appointed from the faculty to select the winner, and
decided in favor of the Sophomores.
After the close of the football season, the Senior girls planed to recompense the
squad by giving them a banquet at the K. of P. hall. The tables were tastefully decor-
ated in purple and gold, and small footballs were given to the guests as favors. The
Senior girls served a delicious dinner and afterward toasts were given by some of the
football squad and faculty members.
The Seniors were the first to break the ice of the Christmas season by having a
party at the K. of P. Hall. In spite of the fact that there were only fifteen members of
the class present, the evening was made a pleasant one. Many interesting games and
contests were furnished by the committee in charge.
The Pep Club, a new organization in High School, closed their social season by
giving the Basket Ball Girls a party at the home of Miss Margaret Bish. The girls of
the club lived up to their name by entertaining the members of the team in a very fit-
ting manner. The team was quite appreciative of the evening's fun and they lingered
long over the refreshments, one girl devouring many as seven chicken sandwiches.

Ghz Tlntersicbool Eebate
'tlnvinciblen characterizes the Interschool Debate Teams of 1924! Their vic-
tories substantiate the cry "Ada High is known of old" and prove that Ada High is
not only a superior school in athletics, but in forensic contest as well.
"Resolved, That all Immigration to the United States should be prohibited for
a period of five years" was the subject chosen for the annual tri-school debate. Ada's
al'i'irmative team, composed of Dorothy Moorman, Leland States, Walter Ferall and
DeWitt Huffman alternate, invaded Crestline and returned with a two to one decision
for our school.
At home, the affirmative team, composed of Jesse Long, Leland Judkins, Esther
McGuff'ey, and Clarence Gray alternate, ably repulsed the attack of the Upper Sandusky
debaters and won by a similar decision.
The convincing arguments presented .by the debaters proved that they had worked
earnestly on the debate and were "full of their subject." Their forceful and clear cut
deliveries along with their analysis of the subject, merit commendation.
The success of the debating teams is in a large measure due to the coach,-Sum.
Crawford. He is deserving of much praise for producing such invincible teams.

THE SPELL OF THE IMAGE
Wife, do you believe in helping your husband? Husband, do you allow your wife
to help you buy the groceries? Would-be better or worse halves, do you agree to the
aforesaid? Those and many similar questions on affairs of life and love were solved
to the surprise and satisfaction of a very appreciative audience April 10 by the Senior
Play Producing Company, whose many members upheld most splendidly the high qual-
ity of work expected of Seniors-particularly of 1924 Seniors.
The actors of the prologue, with their Revolutionary customs and colorful in-
terpretation of the old time minuet, introduced in a very pleasing manner the play
proper. To say that Paul McCurdy was a heartless lover, Kathryn Meyer a lovely and
determined lady, and Margaret Wood a gypsy with a future for herself as well as for
others, is to speak truthfully.
George Conner interpreted the change of heart undergone by a millionaire who
finally was persuaded to do something worth while by Dorothy Worl, an energetic
young business woman who believed in helping her future husband, even to sharing the
purchase of the wedding ring. Jesse Long and Martha Cretors played the roles of
"perfect lovers," each in search of something: the one looking for his Dream Princess,
the other for adventure, and, perchance, a husband. A simple little monkey wrench

jfacts Elbout the Contest
There were more contestants in the lazy, best looking
fellow, and bonehead contest than any others.
B. Rocky received several votes as biggest ladies man
and best looking fellow.
Some of the things liked best were teachers, self,
dark nights, fun, chapel, acting a fool, and short speeches.
All faculty votes were excluded from the results so that
the students would have a chance.
Bill Anspach had little or no competition in the biggest
Some of the things A. H. S. needs most are new faculty,
brains, wild women, more vacations, and someone to
wind the clock.
Two members of the faculty received more votes than
Martha Cretors for the biggest grouch honors. -
Martha received thirteen votes for the biggest knocker
and the same number for the most popular girl!
Ray Baum received votes with two different girls in
the most devoted couple contest. He had very little com-
petition in this department. He received more votes than
any other two contestants in the whole contest.
Tim Crawford voted for his father as biggest grouch,
Floyd Latimore won honorable mention as the
Alice Allen owes her victory to the withdrawal
of the faculty votes from the count.
Leland Judkins received votes as versatile, bonehead,
ladies man, prevaricator, bluffer, wise cracker, gossip,
popular fellow, knocker and devoted suitor,
Those who didn't win think the contest was a joke.
Those who did win think the rest of it is a joke
but that they were voted for in sincerity.
The contest committee spent two days in counting the votes.
Every one of them promised not to breathe a word about the results.
That's why they never were known until now. Since they only
told a "few" we must congratulate all of you upon they honor and
honesty which you have exhibited. CP. S.-Not all of the
vote-counters were girls, either.J

The members of the orchestra have done splendid work this year. There are
seventeen members in all, six of who entered this fall and had no experience in or-
chestra work before. The orchestra is one of the schools outstanding organizations
Mr, Routson, their competent leader, is well pleased in the way the pupils have handled
their music. They have had difficult pieces to work out and have always entered into
the spirit of the piece. They have played an important part in most of the entertain-
ments as well as in chapel services. It is hoped that the orchestra can increase its
numbers next year, and so develop the musical talent of Ada High School. '
Following is the personnel for this year: violins-Margaret Bish, Aldisa Free-
man, Roeliff Eldridge, Mark Warren, Flora McCurdy, Pauline Reese. 'Cornets-Harvey
Gallant, Jesse Welty, and Paul Routson. Clarinets-Jesse Long, Byron Roman. Saxa-
phones-George Conner, Roland States. Trumpet-Paul McCurdy. Drums-Madge

The school year of '24 was one of success for the chorus which was due in part
to the efficient leadership of Miss Byard and to the spirit manifested among the
chorus members. During the first part of the year the chorus was organized as an
eight period class to be held on Monday and Tuesday of each week.
Forty-four High School students have distinction of belonging to this choral club.
and were granted one-half credit in recognition of their year's effort. Chorus work
gives those pupils who are talented, and have shown a great interest in music, a
chance to display their ability.
The chorus has rendered selections in Chapel, Parent-Teacher's Association
meetings, Farmers' Institute, Interclass, and various other entertainments. Miss
llyard has given much of her time in directing the chorus, and has developed a fine
group of singers. The club is much larger than in previous years, and a permanent in-
terest seems to be established in the school.
To climax the year's WO1'k, the chorus will present the three act operetta,
f'Patrica," in the high school auditorium on Monday of the last week of school.

"ANNE WHAT'S HER NAME"
"Ah, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive."
"Anne What's Her Name," a mystery comedy by Walter Ben Hare, was present-
ed by the Junior Class in Lehr Auditorium on April 24, under the direction of Major
Deming. The presentation proved to be a success both dramatically and financially.
The actors and actresses ably interpreted their respective characters and kept the au-
dience in suspense as to the identity of "Anne" until the close of the play.
The hero of the play, Anthony Wheaton, was cleverly presented by Leland
States. He, being accused of murder, conceals himself in the home of Judge Bunby-
Byron Roman, who proves a very hospitable host, due to the fact that Anthony poses
as his nephew, Ebenezer Whittle--Clarence Gray. All the feminine members of the
Judge's household, to the discomfoit of Anthony, become quite infatuated with the
young' man. Because of his deception, Anthony is compelled to become the groom of a
mysterious "Anne" who at the close of the play identifies herself as Nancy Brown, a
friend with whom he has been deeply in love. The part of the heroine was taken by
Dorothy Moorman, who proved herself a very charming character. The detective, Mr.
and Mrs. Ebenezer Whittle, Mooney the maid, Burks, William Peabody, Dr. Aked. Aunt
Julia, Barbara and Marjorie Bunby, along with the previously named characters, did
much to retain the mystery thruout the play.
Walter Ferrall, the business manager, and John Clayton and Robert Wilson of
the stage committee deserve commendation for their contribution to the success of the
play. The whole cast and organization are to be congratulated upon their achievement.

The Pep Club was organized this year of '23-'24 to concentrate on one feature of
athletics, namely, pep. At the beginning of the season the club helped to raise enthu-
siasm Via high school colors, talking and yelling. Selling candy and eskimo-pies was
another feature of its program, increasing good fellowship at the games and also ad-
ding to the treasury. The support of the students and townspeople in this undertaking
was very good and on the day of the tournament the club presented to the school a
clock for the assembly. Mr. 'Crawford stated that during the year we have had many
kinds of time and now we were going to have the good time. flt seemed however that
the clock was not quite adjusted at firstj. At the end of the season the club gave the
Girls' Basket Ball team a party in recognition of their very successful year. The Pen
Club supports all school contests including' debates, orations, interclass, etc.

Domestic Science Eepartment
"We can live without art
We can live without booksg
But civilized man cannot
Live without cooks."
Cooking is an art that has long been neglected in our schools, but has at last
come into its own thru the kindness of the Parent-Teachers Association. The financial
support given by this organization made it possible to equip a modern domestic science
laboratory where the girls might have the opportunity of applying the principles of
cooking. In addition to the actual preparation of foods, time is spent in the study of
the composition of foods essential to health, the calorie requirement, and the planning
of well-balanced meals.
To secure- actual experience, the girls prepared noon lunches which were served
cafeteria style to those who cared to eat at school and especially to the students from
the country. The girls learned how to bake, broil, stew, fry, boil, and how to measure
by tablespoon, teaspoon, and cup.
While the girls were busy in the laboratory on those cold winter mornings about
eleven a. m., some Freshie up stairs would begin to sniff and say, "I smell beefsteakl"
But only half an hour to wait and folks were fed on something more substantial than
Miss Iva M. Jackson, the "supreme spoon wielder," has more than established a
splendid record as a domestic science instructor. After tasting some of her delicious
dishes, we wonder how she is able to ward off the hungry mob of home-seeking men
and live a life of happy single blessedness.
So here's a toast to the Ada High Cooks of 1923-24. May many follow their ex-
ample, for remember, girls, be he ever so educated, "the way to a 1nan's heart still lies
through his stomach."
THE SENIOR -CLASS PLAY
fContinued from Page Fifty-five.J
finally unlocked the way to their future. Ben Smith and Mildred Cole, as lawyer and
self assertive business girl, might not have been perfect lovers, but they still believed
in blushing roses and quiet little chats. Maybe we would call them pluperfect. Marion
Lay was a detective-with a big bright star on his vest, indicative of his playing. If
you are looking for a villain with a good looking and capable partner, meet Dean Pur-
nell and Ernestine Lowman. Dean has the smoke Ccigarl, while Ernie has the bewitch-
ing eyes. 'Charles Hall and Bob McCoppin can run a big booming newspaper, Charles
furnishing the business and Bob the noise. It was difficult to decide which one cast
the more impressive spell, the image, or Izora Scott, who was maid of all work
with thrillin' romances and big feet. Margaret Newton, an aunt of ancestry, and
Elizabeth Bamberg, an aunt of practicality, added much life to the play with their
never ending dissension.
No other words can express more meaningly the success of the play than those,
spoken by a townsman: "The Spell of the Image was presented better than any other
amateur production that I have ever seen." The cast and class owe a debt of gratitude
to Coach Morehead for his efficient direction and his generous services.

Senior Glass 'ilslistory
By Dorothy Whitworth.
The class of '24 appeared on the scene the first Monday in September, 1920.
Sixty-five freshies began to make real history for Ada Hi. Jesse, our star toaster
headed these promising freshmen. Sitting so quiet in their Sunday clothes were the
three "'Clingers" Elsie, John, and Elzay, Audrey and Fairie giggling as usual, and Irvin
and 'Charles the inseparable. We won't forget the "Magic" of bells in our Sophomore
year, nor how Dot Worl captured the judges with a "Word."
The class decided after the long reign of two years that they needed a reforma-
tion so they called on Luther, the noble Snyder. The field of letters is represented by
the immortal Homer. Alice showed what an .advantage it was to be tall when in '22
she always got the tip-off. We started out with three Margarets but Margaret Newton
came along in '22 and now we have four. We didn't used to be a slangy class, but
since Izzie entered as a Junior member of the firm we occasionally say, "Great Scott!"
But there's no danger of our going to sleep because we have a big Ben to keep us
awake and "Tarzan," our star syncopator to keep us moving.
Kathryn, Rachael, and Lizzy Bamberg have been having Miss Jackson teach
them a way to a man's heart. Helen Peterson is a loyal Senior but sometimes we won-
der if she wouldn't rather be a Junior. And there's Dad who doesn't think much of us
Senior girls-but we all understand why. That William Wood is a lawyer of no mean
ability will be seen by all those who read the class will. Agnes Kelly is our efficient
date-maker-read the calendar. Ira Mc's our fleet foot forward. DeWitt, the future
poet, Beezer, and Winnie all came to a good schcol to get "finished," There's Lizzie
Clapper who came to school after Hallowe'en and blushed the whole day! Marion
couldn't quite decide whether he liked us or the other place better, but we congratu-
late him on his good judgment. He finally decided to stay with us,
We all want some "Moore" of Girlandine, she always boosts. Russell go ringa
dem bells. We just found out that Russell plays the xylophone. Snipe's our athlete
and--well we won't say what else. Since '22 we've had good groceries. We buy 'em
of Bob. Grace Wolfley gives all the "studies" we want-10c apiece. Leland, our busi-
ness manager, will go down in history as the originator of the phrase "Nothin' like
havin' plenty." Hang on to your pocket books! But when it comes to sand leave it to
Sandy, our prizefighter. Gale seems to be a magnet for blue slips. He doesn't give
the rest of us a chance. It keeps Ernie our undertaker busy getting coffins for those
of us who passed away from love sickness in '23 and '24-Esther, Pick, Elsieg-and Jim
who not only was afflicted with love-sickness but also sleeping sickness. Helen, Cre-
tors, Eleanor. Jim, Pinkie and our humble servant have the monopoly on "brilliant
heads" though we know all the rest have tried their best to get our recipe.
As the class of 1924 leaves the stage we are reminded of the words of Mark
Anthony, "We shall not look upon his like again."
Ernie-"What a stunning necktie."
Snipe-"It must be. The salesman got S4 out of me while I was still dazed."
John K.-"Father, I've decided to become an artist."
Father-"I've no objections. Just so you don't draw on me."

Senior Glass llbrophecxg
By Margaret Hilty I. ,
Ada, Ohio, March 10, 1924
Say we sure do miss you at school and I'm going to write you a cheery letter if
possible. I tried and tried to think what to tell you avid at last concluded that you
might like to hear something about the future of our illustrious class, as my fleeting
mind now pictures it, in, say ten years from now.
Now I am neither a second Rip Van Winkle nor have I had a dream. It has not
been my pleasure to gaze into a crystal or to interview a famous medium. But
Eleanor, I'm just right here and wide awake, letting my imagination run into the fu-
ture. Perhaps a few observations will help my imagination and the rest I'll trust to
Now Eleanor you're first. You and your husband live on a western ranch and
have some fine Mexican horses. Everyday you ride over the plains and mountains and
find it great sport. Now for some others.
On a bright Sunday morning in June, a young parson arises before his first
charge. In a very low voice but calm and serene, Dewitt Huffman announces his text.
At the close of his sermon the choir arises to sing that beloved hymn, "Lead,
Kindly Light" under the direction of Mr. Brewer, at one time radio-bug and member of
the boys' quartet of A. H. S.
Everybody is talking and that's saying quite a bit when you get to a city the
size of New York. But there is a new show on Broadway and so all the tongues are
wagging. Izora Scott, starring in U12 Minutes," draws the crowd.
In September a fashionable girls' school opens. Among the applications for ad-
mittance in a few years are the names of Mildred Cole's twins and Winnifred Melroy's
two year old daughter. This school is popular, for Margaret Bish is the matron.
In a small town the people have been busy preparing for the reception of the
new minister. At last the wonderful time comes when he arrives with his young wife,
who is none other than Audrey Reams.
A brakeman signals the engineer and a long, sleek train glides out of the great
Chicago station. Gale Poling's hand is on the throttle, Ada is on his schedule, and a
smile is on his face.
In the children's department of a large store Helen Ridgway recognizes one of
her many customers as none other than her former class mate, Elsie Klingler, who
informs her that she is a private secretary, and is on the hunt for Christmas presents
for her neices.
I know you'd like to see what I'm going to tell you about next.
At the theatre a long line is waiting at the ticket window. The Follies, now on,
are said to be the best ever. Really goody Helen Peterson as leading lady, with that
snappy smile of hers, has won fame for the Follies of the season. And, no less, has
Russell Poling, as director of the orchestra, contributed to the show's success,
The month is July. The day is the 4th, The place is Madison Square. The
event is the national boxing match and the winner is "Sandy" Sanderson.
It is the first morning of school after Xmas vacation. The teacher, Girlandine
Moore, is scolding an unprepared freshman algebra class when she suddenly stops be-
cause she remembers the day after vacation in her high school days.

Say, Eleanor, don't some of your class mates surprise you? Here are some that
The Scientific Experiment Company employs two very valuable men in their
laboratories. These two scientists have made some famous discoveries in the world of
science, but especially in Physics. Ray Baum and Ames Campbell both work hard, but
when .a holiday comes each is seen in uniform on the gridiron, being members of a pro-
fessional ball team. Snipe still kicks and Ray runs.
' At a desk in a crowded office a man turns in his chair and looks out on a bright
April day. Jesse Long, president of the Buy Quick Oil Company, wishes he were a
boy again. But at home in the evening before the fire he is contented and when the
children tease, he plays some jazz for them as he used to play in A. H. S.
Margaret Wood, as peppy as ever, I see in a large gymnasium trying to teach a
class of listless girls. She stamps her shapely little foot and demands snap and jump.
Out in the water .a young woman in a red bathing suit is giving swimming les-'
sons to a large class of children. One little fellow gets too far out and Ernie Low-
man, his teacher, risks her life, saves the child and wins a medal.
Don't laugh at me, I'm not responsible for my imagination. Really I'm not.
A certain little man conceived the idea that it is good for people to laugh. The
funny papers are full of laughs but you can't read a funny paper in school. So Marion
Lay travels over the country and draws pictures for the School children.
Alice Shuster, a nurse in a New York Hospital, desiring to buy a bird to sing
a bit of cheer into the heart of a favorite patient, steps into a distinctive novelty shop
on Sixth street. When to her surprise, quick stepping little Kathryn Meyer and her
partner, Rachel Kelly, both rushed forward to wait on her.
A new magazine appears on the news stands. It is a home magazine and Ralph
Snyder is listed as editor of the Fashion Department. This department features the
latest and most chic Parisian modes.
I'm too sleepy to finish this letter tonight but I'll -get up real early tomorrow
Ten o'clock in the morning and feeling fine,
In a certain great city there are many hospitals, but one is especially for chil-
dren from five to thirty-five. It is a holiday and they have a program. Dorothy Worl
appears as an entertainer for the children, first aid for lonesome doctors, and the envy
of the jealous nurses.
A newspaper appears with a poem "Don't be too Friendly with Your Friends."
The author, Elizabeth Clapper, is at the head of a new movement to pension all bachelor
girls after they have reached the .age of eighteen. The poetry contains deep moral
somewhere between the lines.
On a car of onions shipped to Chicago from McGuffey are the names of Homer
Eckenrode and Elza Klingler. As partners they are just making the dirt fly in an
effort to raise good onions and make money. These boys have the distinction of being
the only farmers in the class.
Say I must tell you about Agnes Kelly. She's a librarian in a large library and
quite a success. She has charge of the reading room and is now slated for promotion
to home assistant of the curator.
Winnifred Melroy met her fate and lives in a nice house with a nice, big man, on
a nice street. Just the picture of contentment and enjoyment.
On a busy downtown street, an accident occurs and a policeman rushes up to
keep the people back. Dean Purnell with his big club makes a very imposing officer.

Some of his experience he gained by knocking around in the Senior cloak room.
It makes me hungry to even write you about the next.
A town of the Middle West is the stopping place of many large trains. People
that travel much know of the place, just around the corner from the station, that
serves the wonderful eats. Grace Wolfley presided at the cash register, while Fairie
Stonehill coaxes and bribes the cook. They are having a good time giving people what
they most desire.
Well, Eleanor, you'd never guess what happened to Mildred Cole. She lives with
her husband and at times gives lectures at the High School on such subjects as "Con-
tentment," "Happiness," "Domestic Felicity," etc.
Then there's Margaret Newton who once said she'd rather argue religion than
anything else. She's in India but alas, not as ,a missionary. Margaret sells drugs for
an American company that supplies the natives at the price set by law.
A ship is on its homeward trip and happy sailors are singing at their work. Bob
McCoppin, the husky second mate is singing, "The Girl I Left Behind Me" at the top of
his voice. Bob in days of yore was one of the trained singers at A. H. S.
This is a rather long letter but just be patient.
At the most popular corner of a college campus is a cute little shop, "The Red
and Black," where are displayed the most tempting delicacies such as pink lemonade,
the sweetest candies, etc. by the capable proprietors, Elizabeth Bamberg and Dorothy
Some of our class are financially inclined. Charles Hall and Irvin Freed are
at the head of the Ada Loan and Savings Company. Irvin does the loaning and Char-
les does the saving. If you have any money that you do not care to see again you
might help the new company -get started.
I don't want to forget Madge Betz. She's Judge of the Juvenile Court in Crest-
line. When the victims are brought up she usually gives them severe punishment. But
when a child is brought up for mischief in school, she is lenient. For Madge remembers
her Freshman year and those never-failing detention periods.
A whir and buzzing in the air and an airplane comes into view. Ira McElroy,
the pilot, is now one of the U.S. mail carriers. Ira says that the thrill and inspiration
he gets out of flying through the air, far surpasses any he ever experienced as a
Senior in '24,
And listen, Eleanor, do you know that when you return from your expected trip
abroad your trunks are sure to be snooped into by Leland Judkins, the Revenue Collec-
tor at the port of New York.
It is Thanksgiving day at the Clarke County Children's Home. Esther Mcliiuf-
fey, the matron arises to give the children a talk. She tells the little "Red" faced chil-
dren how thankful they should be that the love of "Money" has not robbed them of :heir
good matron. She talks until she too becomes "Red" in the face.
You'll admit that my imagination is working fine, won't you, Eleanor?
The picture section of the Sunday newspaper is almost entirely devoted to pic-
tures of newly discovered land around the South Pole. One picture especially is inter-
esting, for it shows the two famous explorers, Pinky Conner and Tarzan Mcdurdy,
playing for the natives, receiving much applause and many invitations to "Call Again."
Out in a western town, Benny Smith climbs out of his aeroplane and breezes
"Well! By George!" Ben is now a mining engineer and has just returned from a pros-
pecting trip in Alaska. He was loathe to return for he sure did enjoy the long nights

Senior Glass Grumble
By George F. Conner
"Fear not the anger of the wise to raise:
Those best can bear reproof who merit praise." -Pope.
Of all the low-down High Schools, this one is the worst. Eureka, what if some-
body would examine this place? It gives me a nervous break-up to think what the pa-
pers would say and for the love of mud think-how many people would probably be
totally dementalitized by the shock of reading the cold facts about this supposed "Hall
of the Famous." It is rather, "Hall of the Infamous." Infamous-whose synonyms
express the place to a T-Y-atrocious, base, detestable, disgraceful, dishonorable, dis-
reputable, heinous, ignominous, ill-famed, nefarious, odious, outrageous, scandalous,
shameful, shameless, vile, villainous, wicked QSee Basel.
Oh Boy, Wouldn't this Ada High School make a rare scoop for some newspaper?
They could run this story for years and its irretractable facts and startling details
would never grow old! It would be a story for all time. "A classic, Mr, Crawford?"
Suffering Ceasar! fDue to those dumb Sophomoresj, now just, WHAT IS THE
MATTER WITH THE ADA HIGH SCHOOL? A five-foot shelf of books would not
begin to hold the essentials-of this great topic. What a subject for a thesis! More
power to you, writer, you'll need it. My galloping Eversharp does tremple in the superb
strain of a subject so magnanimous. Briefly will I treat on a few of the multifarious
wrongs and outrageous outrages.
In the first place, the equipment that is so necessary, is conspicuous in its ab-
sence. The nurses are without sufficient milk and castoria to take care of our tender,
young green, things. The nursery for the Freshmen has been hopelessly delayed and I
doubt if anything ever will be accomplished. I tell you, without this fresh, blooming
youth, the world is doomed to disaster.
Oh that hopeless Sophomore gang! We must be kind though and consider them
under a dark light. My heart goes out for the poor, dear, misled things. They have
been dragged down to believe that chewing gum was meant to be chewed in school and
that to write a page full of interesting scandal and then tear it up and broadcast it all
over the assembly floor is quite the clever procedure. Some day, let us hope, a cham-
pion will arise and lead them out of their environment into a land where brain-power
Ye gods! That silly, simpering Junior Class would corrode metal! The laziest
bunch of dumb-crackers you ever saw. Mose Morehead is the only one to whom the
Junior boys have ever been of any use. I-Ie uses them in Freshmen Algebra to indicate
the value of the square root of minus one. The feminine members of that bombastic
group of nusiances have only one worry in this life. How many cubic inches of powder
can one small girl cause to remain fixed on one beaming visage?
But it's those Seniors-those Seniors-that give me the pain. The big mutts
think they know something just because they've been thru Ada High School. What a
delusion! It's a wonder their minds haven't dried up from lying unused so long. They
are all mining their faces by turning up their noses so much to under classmen and
curling their lips with disdain when some Freshman exposes his innocent ignorance.
Those Senior girls are always trying to get into somebody else's business and run ev-
erybody and everything. Senior boys gossip, fight, chatter and play around in class
like first graders but the very next time a Freshman is caught acting natural they yell,

"Grow up!" This is beyond me. It takes a criminologist to understand such actions.
This High School gang of morons are all the time harping on their fine pep.
Sep-? Pepi-'Z Compared with them, Rip Van Winkle would look like a St. Vitus
Say-, the amount of work those teachers pile on the poor students is a blot on
the record of the human race! Who ever heard of such inhuman treatment? And
make-up work! If you have to stay out of school on account of fire, death, cyclone,
murder, overwork, cholera morbus, or incapacitation,-woe be unto you! When you get
back to school in your weakened condition, they will all try to pile enough work on you
to make it fatal.
And what tiresome things these teachers are! Such bores and pessimists with
all their reproofs and "don'ts." They are all the time getting in the way and interfering
with the important business of the students. Why can't they let them alone instead of
spending so much time aggravating them? Why don't they do something useful like
running a picture show or giving us a nice intellectual minstrel? As they are these
teachers are as useless as perfume in a Hay-Fever colony. I never could see what
they have these teachers here for and I don't see what on earth the Board of Education
meant when they put them in. I think they intended they should be used only in case
Of course I could go on at great length and give some little treatment of the
existing evils in Ada High School but I must bid you all a fond farewell and hurry to
my train. Wrongs must be brought to light for that is the only w.ay to progress and
reformation. If every year the grumbler in the annual will bring forth the wrongs
to be righted, I prophesy that within not less than the next hundred years, something
will be done! 1 trust that those brave grumblers who follow me will hold high the
torch of enlightenment, and those who have grumbled here, shall not have grumbled in

Seniors' last will anb Eestament
We, the Senior Class of the Ada High School, as we feel the day approaching
when we will enter the land of diplomas, from which we are sure we will never return,
and while we are still conscious and responsible for our actions, draw up our last will
and testament, willing all our property, both real and personal, to the high school, in
the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty-four.
To the Junior 'Class we bequeath room eleven with the large cloak room and all
the numerous duties of the Senior Class.
To the Sophomores, our sister class, we leave many of our valuable heirlooms,
too numerous to mention.
After much thought .and due consideration we have decided to invest the
sum of one dollar and copyright the privilege of passing the waste basket, and present
the same to the Freshman Class.
To our honorable faculty we will complete jurisdiction over all the animated and
inanimate objects mentioned in this will.
I, George Conner, will my ability as cheer leader to Robert Lowman.
I'm Pink, red-haired and tall
And ,a player of football as well as basketball.
I, Ames Campbell, will my ability .as a line plunging fullback to Willis Anspach.
Snipe is tall and handsome
And in the Central track meet he sure ran some,
I, Dorothy Whitworth, will about ten per cent of my musical inclination to Jack
Clayton, which added to his own ought to make him world renowned.
The class dues claim all change that is loose
Dorothy is comptroller of the financial strangling noose.
I, Robert McCoppin, will my entire knowledge of the Ferrall tackle to George
The only stars in Solid Geometry you see
Are Fireworks Roman and me.
I, Leland Judkins, will the remainder of that keg of axle grease I intended to
use on my hair to the football squad to be used on the football shoes.
Oh, the faces this boy would make
When a football from the air he was about to take.
I, Madge Betz, will my ability of arguing to the debating team.
In American Literature class she was two jumps behind
For which the reason is not hard to find.
I, Elsie Klingler, will my knowledge of French to the French I class.
When the bell hop I again beheld
My heart within me swelled.
To no other than George McElroy I, Carl Sanderson, will my continuous loud
In football Sandy was fullback
In Physics experiments he is way back.

In Ancient History class John slept,
After finding out that he had missed a test, he wept.
I, Esther McGuffey, will my skill as a debater to next year's team.
They say money does evil, some say it does good,
But I'll take my Money for bad or for good.
I, Ira McElroy, will my sunny disposition to the High school to be distributed

This boy and the barber's daughter had quite a case
The attraction, we guess, was his beaming face.
I, Elizabeth Clapper, will some of my ability as ,a writer of prose and poetry to
In prose she is fine,
Her greatest achievement is in rhyme.
I, Ralph Snyder, will the job as janitor-in-chief of the gym to Fancy Ferrall.
The number of things this boy can do is great,
He can play end, tackle or guard and can edit or debate.
1, Margaret Newton, will my spit curl to Lucy Hayden.
Most of you obey when the law is in action,
But not I, I'm the Law's attraction.
I Jesse Long, will a volume of my poems to the High School Library.
In football he plunged the line, in debate he does fine,
As a wise-cracker he has a line, but on married women he draws the line.
I, Jim Brewer, will my pipe to Jim Pumphrey.
In American Literature when I tell them things they do not know,
They think I am telling things that a1'e not so.
All the above we do give to have and to hold forever. We hereby appoint Erney
Routson as sole executor of this document.
Signed, sealed, and published, we declare this to be the last will and testament
of the class of 1924, A. H. S.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
fContinued from Page Sixty-nine,
One of our number has attained national fame with her collection of curios,
insects, etc. In '24 Martha Cretors made a very rare collection at the Kenton tourney.
This collection, along with many later catches made by her, are now on exhibition at
the Kenton Museum of Natural History.
Kenton is a much larger town than it used to be and has many shops, One
of the most unique is a flower shop known as "The Forget-Me-Not," owned and operated
by our old friend John Klingler. Even in high school, John inclined towards Kenton.
It is a great night in Ada for a lecture entitled "Quiet Waters Run Deeply" is to
be delivered at Northern by a noted alumnus. Bill Wood, famous lecturer and globe
trotter, will appear in his home town for the first of a series of lectures that he expects
to deliver at the best universities in this country.
So Eleanor, I have come to the last of our class, which is your humble servant,
for whom I only wish that she may in some small way be a blessing to mankind and,
if that be not vouchsafed her, at least to womankind.

Mr. Morehead's second year as coach of ath-
letics in A. H. S. was even more successful than
the first. He upset the dope by again producing
winning teams, despite the loss of a large num-
ber of letter men of the class of '23, "Mose" is
a graduate of Muskingum College, where he
starred in basketball, football, and baseball. He
came here after three years coaching at Wash-
ington C. H., Ohio, and was secured largely
through the efforts of Mr. Crawford, who also
attended Muskingum College.
To "Mose" goes much credit for helping the
members of the Ada High School in their am-
bitions to continue the fine records made by for-
mer teams. He knows athletics, both from the
standpoint of a player and a coach, is strong for
clean athletics, for the fundamentals of the game
and is especially quick to recognize and develop natural talent. Some coaches, other
than Morehead, might have balked at the extra amount of work piled on this year. In
addition to varsity football, basketball, and track, he handled the girls' varsity, the
second team, which had an eleven game schedule, and found time to devote to interclass
basketball, the Senior Class Play, and other activities.
W A llqeven Hb. Stauffer
Due to the shift in the faculty over the vacation months
it was found necessary to elect a new Faculty Manager. Mr.
Stauffer, the new science teacher, was considered the most
logical and promising candidate for that responsible, but
poorly paid, position and accordingly at an early meeting of
the Athletic Association he was elected to fill the vacancy.
Mr. Stauffer comes from Marion Harding High, where
he had spent a year teaching science. As the season pro-
gressed we felt that a better choice could not have been made
for "Perey" fitted exceptionally well into the workings of the
Ada High School. He is especially strong for athletics and
greatly interested in Ohio Wesleyan, his Alma Mater. This
however did not detract from the services rendered within
his present field. Mr. Stauffer's attitude is one of real earn-
estness and enthusiasm for the success of the school, especi-
ally from a financial standpoint. As he was too busy raking
in admission to watch most of the home games, he must have
at least enjoyed that part of it, for he was always in good
humor and hopeful for good weather and good crowds. We
hope that Stauffer will be back next year, if only to reap a
small compensation in the form of thanks and appreciation
from the association and its members,

Athletes of '24 were very fortunate in having an unusually hardworking and
efficient Board to back them up. Probably the largest responsibility met in an organi-
vation of this kind is the handling of all incoming and outgoing "shekels." This in-
cludes the fixing of admission prices,the purchasing of new equipment, and in general
to finance the various teams. Only the members of the board know how much it
takes for traveling expenses, new equipment, rent, lights, repairs, water and gas and
hundreds of minor expenses that help to decrease the profits.
The Athletic Board, this year, has listed many accomplishments of which the
school may be proud. An Athletic Association membership drive, early in the season
netted the sum of S218 to begin operations on. At different times during the season
nexx football and basketball equipment was added as it was needed, in all, over six
hundred dollars worth. In addition to this, several old debts, some dating back to '21
xx ele discovered and erased that the coming Board may begin with a clean slate.
Shortly after the close of the basketball season, the last 35200 was paid on the
High School Gymnasium, making a total of over S630 including interest which has been
paid during the year. The Gym is now leased to the High School for a five year
The members of the various athletic teams were treated to some fine trips, the
basketball schedule including games with Lorain, Sandusky, and New Concord. As the
last debts are being rounded up it is evident that a comfortable nest egg will be left
for next year. Excellent support of the student body and the townspeople has enabled
the board to keep a safe amount in reserve at all times.
The fifteen members of the Athletic Board of '24 included the faculty represen-
tatives, various managers and assistants, captains of the four varsity teams, the coach
ind the cheerleaders. Jesse Long was elected president, and has proven his ability to
find cut the wishes of the members and to point the way out of a difficulty. Other of-
ICCIN are Ames Campbell, vice president, and Martha Cretors, secretary-treasurer.

lbarsitxg jfootball in 1923
With the first game of the 1923 football season scheduled for September 21st,
the manager was forced to dig up all the equipment some time before school started.
The uniforms, some twenty in number, were relieved of all their surplus mud and
properly distributed among the would-be shining lights.
Seven letter men having graduated, Coach Morehead ferreted out all the likely
material to add to the eight Veterans who remained. In this work, Captain-elect Doer-
sam Droved an .able assistant, especially in coaching the newer aspirants in the gentle
art of "Kill your neighbor."
Nine games had originally been scheduled, one each with Carey, Mt. Cory,
Tiffin, Findlay, Lima Central, Var'
Wert, and two with Kenton. After
' the last of these games a post-sea-
son meet was arranged with Ridge-
farm, Illinois, High school, for the
, first intersectional game ever held
in this vicinity.
The fine showing made
against the heavy Carey outfit in
the initial game pointed as sure as
the sun to "better times ahead."
The game lost by 10 to 0 count was
later forfeited to us because of in-
eligibility of players.
After two more weeks of
practice and the discovery of some
more newly developed talent the
eleven was in better trim for the
. battle with Mt. Cory on October 6.
The opponents were unable to pen-
etrate the Ada defense with any
regularity and a hard earned
touchdown in the second quarter
nut the game on ice for the local

field. This was one of the fastest and hardest fought games of the schedule, the issue
being in doubt until the final whistle. The score, 9 to 7, might possibly hint at the
fierceness of the struggle.
The largest crowd of the season turned out for the Ada-Findlay affair on Octob-
er 20. From the financial standpoint it was the most successful game of the season,
whlle in regards to the spectators standpoint we have it from "Percy" that no one
wanted his money back. Mountains to the right of them, mountains to the left of them,
mountains in front of them tells the story of the Findlay game, The relatively light
Ada team held the "Golden Tornado" to a single touchdown but lost by a one point
margin due to failure to kick goal after a thirty yard touchdown by Campbell.
Lima Central was evidently out to collect the interest on the two defeats handed
her in basketb.all the previous season. After being swept off their feet for fifty yards
and scored on in the first three minutes of play the Lima aggregation came back
strong and made three touchdowns, thus winning by a comfortable margin.
After dropping a loosely played 'game at Van Wert, the Irish Scotch or Pennsyl-
vania Dutch blood asserted itself, and Sidney got the full benefit of it. After the del-
uge the score board said 30 to 0. During the week there had been a decided shift in
the lineup, which resulted in a much stronger offense. Captain Doersam, playing at
fullback, made three of the four touchdowns, while the other was garnered by John
Klingler at left end.
The "Fighting Wildcats" of Kenton High were next met and tamed. The game
was played on Kenton's field and resulted in a 27 to 6 victory for the Purple and Gold.
In this game each of the subs was given a chance to "do his stuff." In a return game
on our field the "Wildcats" were completely shut out to the tune of 33 to 0. These two
victories made things look brighter and at the same time boosted our average several
notches. A smooth working aerial attack was responsible for large gains. Campbell
was the shining light at Kenton, while Baum starred at Ada with three touchdowns.
After two weeks of idleness due to climatic conditions, the Big Red Eleven
buckled down and played easily the best game of the season. The well coached Ridge-
farm team was swamped under an avalanche of passes and flocks of end runs. Most of
the fracas was held on Ridgefarm territory, showing that the eleven men who were in
line for graduation gave a good account of themselves. The final score was 19 to 0.
A brief review shows that Ada High won seven games and lost three, piling up a
score of 138 points to their opponents' 48. This is an excellent record, as in nearly
every case the opposition came from a much larger high school. Many promising
players are left in the lineup for next year.
At the annual banquet given in the K. of P. Hall by the Senior girls, Joe Brech-
eisen was chosen as captain for the season of '24, "Red" is a three letter man who
justly deserves the honor paid him by his team mates. Assistant Manager Jack
Mustard will succeed Leland Judkins to the managership next year.

varsity Basketball in 1924
Five lettermen, three of them Seniors, were back to hold up the honors of the
school in the caging game. Several of these had worked together for two years and
were prepared to take up the science where they had left off the previous season. An
attractive schedule arranged for the second team drew many players from the class
teams, resulting in an exceptionally good list of second stringers. They were able to
give the varsity all the opposition needed in their development.
The first five stood the gaff so well that only seven men were carried during
most of the season. All "dope" pointed to another successful season for the Ada team.
New uniforms had been purchased for their debut on December 21.

failed to "-get the ball, keep the ball, and put the ball in the basket" enough, and the
score was a big one.
The Red and White representatives from Kenton Hi exhibited their wares on the
19th. The game was unusually fast and clean with the Purple and Gold scrambling on
top early in the game and holding their lead.
After a freezing trip to Sidney the Big Five warmed up enough to win the fifth
straight victory. The ex-football players expressed regret for forgetting shoulder
pads and head gears.
Slush! Is that right? Ada lost at Kenton? Turn about is fair play but it
comes at the wrong time for consecutive wins.
Bucyrus came here with a clean slate, having defeated Mansfield and other
cities of that calibre but met their Waterloo, as all teams will.
Lima South, playing their best game of the season, came much nearer to turn-
ing the trick, but stumbled and dropped out in the last of two overtime periods.
Feb. 15th finally dragged around and we were off for Lorain and Sandusky.
Sight of the lake and seagulls so inspired the Ada basketeers that Lorain was given
a decided walloping, the score being 19-0 at the half.
Spies from Sandusky got an eyeful but "Nardi" Miller's outfit also lost by a
similar score on the following evening.

Central squirmed out one point ahead in the Kenton tourney. The unexpected defeat
followed a hard battle with Findlay from which we had emerged a victor.

"Andy" Smith. A captain of the team of '24, Ben was at all times a good sport
and a "Mean" center. He was the only Ada player to get a berth on the all-tournament
team at Kenton. "Andy" set a good example to all other members of the team.
"Dad" Baum's second year of varsity basketball can best be described with fig-
ures. Whether on forward or guard "Dad" couldn't be shut out from the high scorers
position. He scored 200 points of the 520 rolled up this season.
"Breck" combined speed and weight to a degree where he could guard, pass or
shoot to perfection. His long shots saved the Lima South game. Joe has another year
to play for A. H. S., and has been chosen for the captaincy.
"Snipe" would rather play basketball than eat, which is something to say. He
made his last year count, playing a hard, steady game at all times, with never a let up
till the final whistle. An old timer in the guarding and passing business.
"Dick" Long blossomed out in two short seasons into a full fledged and seasoned
forward. His build resembles his name so closely it is hard to guard all of him at
once. Some appendage was sure to work loose and make a basket.
"Jud" preferred to let the forward do the shooting but was all there as fighting
guard. He was strong for wins and used gentleness only as a last resort.
"Mack" doesn't care to write-up his achievements so we'll do it for him. After
being a class team star for .three years, "Mack" joined the varsity and developed into a
dependable cager. His ability was especially shown after Campbell was injured.

Girls' Basketball in 1924
The girls' basketball team had a very successful season this year, winning 11
out of 14 -games played. After three weeks of practice, the first game was with Ridge-
way. On account of the small floor, just five played on each team. It proved a handi-
cap to the Ada girls, but nevertheless they trounced Ridgeway to the tune of 19 to 9.
The next game was at home with Dola. The Ada girls game out on the floor
with their striking new suits of maroon and gray. The Dola girls had a good team
but our girls were yet better and won 30 to 15.
After this game came our first defeat. The Columbus Grove girls won over us
25 to 9. Our motto, "be therel' accounts for some of the wild passes made by the Var-
ious members of the team at some very inopportune times.
Our next game resulted in defeat by Galion. The girls traveled to Galion
where they came up against a very strong team. The Galion girls won by a score of
22 to 13.
Our next game was with our old rival, Kenton. The Kenton lasses played a
good game but the Ada girls defeated them 32 to 15, proving much their superior. Two
weeks later our girls played them again, defeating them on the Kenton floor to the tune
of 25 to 16.
This was followed by two glorious victories over Van Wert and Mt. Cory, the
scores being 24 to 10, and 47 to 5.
The comical sensation of the season was staged with Mt. Victory as opponents.
The entire game was a scream for both players and spectators, The subs enjoyed a
fair practice and the final score was 22 to 1.
The following week we met our Waterloo with the Galion sextette again. The
score was 17 to 11. Oh, if the Ada girls could have only played the first half like they
did the last, what might have been the result?
The Hardin County Tournament crowned the season with success. Our victories
were over Forest 10 to 3, Dola 11 to 3, and our previous comedian sextette, Mt. Vic-
, tory, 34 to 1. In this final game, u K
l Coach Morehead gave the specta-
tors some extra fun by changing
the positions of the various mem-
bers of the team.
The last game of the season
was staged at Roundhead. The fi-
nal score was 18-7 in our favor.
Because of the small floor, the R.
H. S. girls led the Ada girls a mer-
ry chase until our girls got a little
acquainted with the floor, then it
was no trouble to leave Roundhead
in the shade.
Thus ended a very successful
season, greatly due to the ability
and untiring patience of Coach
Morehead. The girls gave Mr.
Morehead a spotlight for his fliv-
ver in appreciation of his work.

a good center at all times, which was recognized at the tourney when she made the
position of center on the all-star team.
"Doc" or Elinore Campbell, right forward, showed unusual ability in most of the
games in her pass work and basket making. Although Coach Mo1'ehead remarked that
she had to think "I-guess-l'll-shoot" nevertheless the old proverb "Make haste
slowly" proved to be the best policy, for when she once got the ball is was usually a
basket for us. She won the position of forward on the all-star team at the tournament.
A "Toots" or Suzanne Lantz, left guard did excellent pass work and guarding and
was chosen guard and captain of the all-star team. She was instrumental in her
witty sayings and clever pranks. x
1 "Socky" or Alice Allen, left forward was unsurpassed for getting the ball and
passing it when she felt she did not have a chance to make a basket. She was the
star basket maker in the Kenton game at home, making a total of 19 points,
"Bet" or Beatrice Lantz, right -guard was a loyal supporter of our motto "be
there" for she was always "Johny on the spot" when the ball came her way.
"Edie" or Edith Conner, running center, was the most faithful member of our
sextette, never missing a practice the entire season. Her ability to think quick aided
her in keeping the signals straight and getting the tip off and sending the ball on its
way to the basket.
"Campbell" or Mildred Campbell, first sub forward was so fast that it took a
good guard to find her. She was very much elated when the ball would roll in the
basket for her.
"'Battels" or Mildred Battels, first sub on guard and center, developed into a
real player. Her pleasing personality made her popular with all the girls. Everyone
enjoyed seeing her play because of her unusual earnestness.
Mildred Friedly, Eunice Carey, Mildred Runser, Gladys Cotner, Dorothy Detrick,
and many other girls deserve praise for their untiring efforts in helping out the girls
in their practices.
As all the team will be back We are looking forward to a very successful season
-Elinore 'Campbell '25.
Like a basketball, football, or
track team, the student body needs some-
one to direct their efforts. We firmly
believe that Ada high school enjoyed
many fine victories in each of these dif-
ferent sports, which would not have been
possible without our full quota of the
necessity mentioned above. In addition
to the spirit shown by the members of
the school itself, the splendid backing of
the alumni and the townspeople is much
to be appreciated.
"Pinky" Conner is a graduate of
the well known "Davis and Moore"
school of cheerleading. Sufficient to
say that as a result of this early train-
ing, he and his assistants, Detrick.
"Tackhammer," Lantz, and Florida, kept
the school supplied with pep in every form. These loyalists, resplendent in white
sweaters and purple and gold streamers could be depended upon to coax the last yell
out of any person subjected to their hypnotic powers.
In conclusion we of the various classes agree ffor onceb and extend to "Pinky,"
"Tack," "Dorothy," "Sue," and "Flick" a vote of thanks for the services which they
have rendered "free gratis" to the school,

SPECIAL TO THE PURPLE AND GOLD-
--Kessler's Little Helpers defeated the Ima
Mother's Jewel outfit 10 to 12 here Sunday
night in the most sensational basketball game
every played in the Ada High School Gym. Led
by Big Boy Kessler, the Little Helpers broke
loose from the Apron Strings in the last few
seconds of play and rang up six successive
baskets for the victory, after having trailed
the Jewels 10 to 1 during three quarters of the
Break in Final Period
The break of the game came in the final
period when Crawford, a Mother's Jewel, sub-
stituted for McElwain, who had to go home
before dark to do the chores and round up the
children. By means of an over-sized rolling
pin, Mrs. Crawford had convinced her husband
that he mustn't exert himself much, The model
man was true to his conviction, the winning
points all being made from his territory.
The losingteam has accused Erney Rout-
son, who refereed the inter-faculty contest, of
showing rank favoritism toward the Little
Helpers. Erney denies the charge, and states
that he called every foul he saw and refereed
to the best of his ability.

of unfair play. Erney hunted thru his rule

To Ada High's second team came the honor of being the Hardin county league
champions. A glorious season netted eight victories out of ten games played. Not
only did the second team bring honor and a trophy cup to Ada High, but it developed
some very promising material for next year's varsity team .

Ada, unable to find herself on Ridgeway's small floor, was nosed out by a single
toss in the overtime period, 14-16,
Dunkirk appeared. The plucky second team tore into them and sank the leather
for several counters. In the final seconds of the last stanza Ada gained a one point ad-
vantage and by keeping the ball in her own territory emerged winner by a single point,
14 to 13.
Forest found the net at long range, Ada countered with short shots. Forest's
defense grew air-tight on her small floor while she continued to rain in the long ones
over Ada's defense. Ada, disconcerted by the low ceiling, was unable to overcome
Forest's lead by long ones. Score 18 to 11.
Ada scalped Dola 23 to 15.
Ada vs. Mt. Victory. When the referee drew the curtain, a struggle ensued. It
was a neck and neck race. Ada managed to keep one step ahead most of the time.

i COUNTY LEAGUE TOURNAMENT, ADA, MARCH 8
1 P. M.-Mt. Victory scared us, but States kept up our spirits by continually
caging long ones. After the team steadied, they pulled together. Long hit the crock
and Poling hooped a counter. Score 15 to 5.
Semi-finals, 5 P. M.-Ada swamped Ridgeway. Revenge was sweet, 30 to 3.
Finals, 8:30 P. M.-Ada met Dunkirk. The game was intense, thrilling and hard.
The teams tied all thru the last verse until Dunkirk heaved the anchor on the deck for
a two point lead. Dunkirk fans went wild. States countered with a beautiful breath-
taker. Ada fans went wild. Poling sank the sphere from the center as the curtain
dropped. Dunkirk 10, Ada 12.
"It gives me great pleasure to present this cup-."
THOSE WHO DID IT 2'
"Rol" States, captain, was the point getter for the squad. "Rol" fought his best
and well deserved his place on the all-star team of the tournament.
"Jess" Long played a hard game for Ada. He was the steady and consistent
player who pulled the team together. "Jess" was a tireless fighter and surely did his
"Paddock" Florida was brilliant, graceful and fast. Paddock played a star game
in the tournament and copped off a place on the all-star team. His defensive work in
the tournament was exceptional.
"Galum" Poling was a jewel for the second team. His ability to return compli-
ments was quite noticeable, tho he only retaliated when imposed upon.
"Jamey" Jameson was a real guard and a hard player. He was famous for get-
ting the ball off the bank board and proved a veritable stonewall to all invaders of our
"Pink" Connery let us say-"No man should be a judge of his own case."
"Stemp" Stemple was there with a vim, filling his place completely. Stemple's
passes were perfect and his playing very efficient.
"Fancy" Ferrall had a neutralizing influence on all efforts of opposing forwards.
He certainly could cage the ball in warming up. A hard steady player.
"Bill" Anspach was a strong man. He often snagged points on long ones. Bill
was a hard player and always cheered up the team. --George F. Conner, '24

With the opening of the basketball
season, the class teams swung into ac-
tion. Strange to say, the upper classes
didn't "rate" much against the brand of
basketball put out by the younger boys.
The Sophomore Class put a real
team on the floor. Scott and Anspach,
playing at the forward positions were
their main point getters. In the first
two games with the Freshmen they were
unable to throw enough baskets and the
Freshmen walloped them by comfortable
scores. This team however proved a
stumbling block for the big "senior ma-
chine" which was doped to win the
championship under the direction of
In the last round of the interclass
series, the Sophomores defeated the
Freshmen by a score of 12 to 6. thus
winning the championship with seven
victories and two losses.
After the championship had been decided an all star class team was selected by
the high school varsity. "Din" Baransy, Freshman hoop artist, was given the right
forward position. "Chick" Anspach made him a good running mate with his clever
dribbling and shooting. "Gilly" Gallant, the "rarin" Freshman, was agreed upon as
the logical selection for center. "Scotty" Scott made a fast running guard for this
outfit and slipped in several baskets against the "County Champs." "Beezer" Purnell
at the other guard gave a clever demonstration of what a fullback can do when he is
"strutting his stuff." "Beezer" had the fear on all the boys. Peterson and Cribley
made able subs and well demonstrated their ability,
This all star aggregation lost to the high school seconds 16 to 19, after having
given the second team a real scare.

As Ann Thology says: "The melancholy days have come. The saddest of the
year: The frost is on the pumpkin, and the fodder's in the ear."
Which means the last of the football season, or, as the zoo keeper says "speak-
ing in bear facts" the football season is now over. We have seen our heroes pancaked
on the gridiron for the last time this year. However, we now have the basketball sea-
son on our hands along with three blisters from sweeping and cleaning out the gym,
so we aren't so had off as the butcher who couldn't make .both ends meat.
Perhaps you have heard some of the old timers expostulating about their great
football teams in former years, and how they beat Stivers, etc.,-ad infinitum. Maybe
they've been razzing you and saying that we don't have any football team now com-
pared with five or six years ago. They're pretty safe tho, because there is no way to
compare the strength of the two teams of any two years but just the same, we made
a record this season that cannot .be beat.
We did get a bad start but we hit our real stride in the last four games and
mopped up our opponents to the tune of 109 to 6. Not so bad huh? Well, let's start at
the first and compare this year's team with last year's eleven.
This year we played ten games. We lost three and won seven. fcounting one
that was forfeitedj. Last year we lost two games, tied two 0 to 0 and won five. We
scored 136 points to our opponents' 58 and last year they only scored 119 to 71.
The Sidney game was a good example of what our team could do when they
were going -good. We beat Sidney 30 points, so did Lima Central. That makes the
strength of Ada and Central about even. Central beat Findlay 19 to 0, which gives
us an advantage over Findlay of 19 points. Toledo Scott only beat Findlay 7 to 0 which
gives us the best of Scott by 12 points.
Now Scott beat Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 24 to 21 and Cedar Rapids beat Waite 10
to 0 so that we have the dope on Cedar Rapids, the best team in the Central West, by
15 points and on Waite by 25 points.
Waite beat Lake Charles, La., 14 to 0. Lake 'Charles is the best team in the
South. Also Waite beat Buffalo, the best team in the East, and Spokane, the best
team in the far West,
In our last game we played a team that had scored 252 points to their oppon-
ent's 19. Ridgefarm was known as the "Center College" of Illinois High Schools and
we scored as many points on them as their opponents did all season, 19 to 0. That was
the first inter sectional football game ever held here and we got lots of publicity all
over the state because we beat Illinois, a thing which even OhioState couldn't do.
It isn't hard to see that we have a claim to the championship of the U. S. that
can't be disputed from the record that we made in our last four games. I don't wanna
brag, but I'll say, "with malice toward none and charity to all," that we wouldn't be
afraid to play again any or all of the games that we lost this year, and we'd win 'em
And on top of all this we made money enou-gh to buy a lot of new equipment and
pay four hundred dollars on the gym. The Senior girls gave us a rare feed at the K.
of P. last Friday nite. Chicken 'n all. fThis morning my coefficient of linear ex-
pansion was about five inches.J After the feed and the program, we all sang songs
and cracked wise 'till eleven bells,
By the way I know that you are interested in chicken on the farm but why don't
you come to town and start out in earnest. Like me. Of course, I know there's no
place like home, but then that depends on where your home is.
Well, so long, I've got a date with Ann Thology and I'll have to stop. I'll tell
you, Ann is driving me completely nutty.
Hoping that you are the same,

"I live in Ada High School and my name is truthful J awn
I have a little bible which I always swear upon,
I never fool the public, so upon this bible now,
I'll swear to tell the honest facts about Miss Hunter's row."
Time: 1:45 p. m.
Place: Room 10, A. H. S.
fEnter Sociology Class, composed of one student, one pupil, about twenty morons
and six absolute temporary imbeciles.
Miss Hunter Cstanding on chair so that she may be seenjz "Ira, you have a
report on some problems of the city for today."
Ira: f'I couldn't give a report or a speech, so I'll give a short talk on the Fire
Plug, a problem of the city today,
"The problem of the Fire Plug is one of our pressing and vital problems. It
must be met and coped with at once or all are doomed to destruction by either that
terrible enemy fire or by its ally, thirst.
"The problem of the fire plug has many phases that are akin to it, to wit: the
plug hat, the plug of tobacco, the common plug and even the most recent member of
the group, Spark Plug, with his many victories and defeats which brings us to the
race problem. The race problem can be traced back to the time when our illustrious
and well meaning, but sadly disillusioned and misled forefathers brot over the first boat
load of aborigines, which brings up the question of immigration.
"Many immigrants today do not come to America for money, but to seek homes,

which leads to the great domestic problem of today. Something must be done to stop
the degeneration of the home and the only way to stop this is to get at the cause,
which is marriage. If it were not for marriage there would not be so many homes
broken up and so many divorce suits.
"Thousands of unscrupulous lawyers make millions of dollars in our divorce
courts, which causes us to ask, "Are our colleges turning out the right kind of lawyers?"
And if not, what about the rest of our college graduates, who must be of the same
type? It would seem best not to go to college at all, but on further consideration we
find that very few people go to college who have not graduated from some high school.
Thus we see the high school is the root of all the trouble and the cause of the
pressing problem of the fire plu-g in the city.
"This has been a Very brief resume of the dominant factors in this case, as the
great number of problems arising from this one problem make it very complex. However,
I hope it shall be my pleasure to give another talk soon on some of the kindred ques-
tions to the fire plug such as the faucet, spigot, soda fountain, the common pump, the
well, the public fountain, fountain pens, and shower baths. I thank you."
Miss Hunter: "I think so too. Now Ray, from this report what is Sociology?"
Ray: "The same as war." fEditor's Note-See Shermanj.
Miss Hunter: "Robert, where do we find the most insane people?"

Miss Hunter: "No, I mean are they in the city or in the country ?"
Bob Mc: "Yes."
Miss Hunter: "Yes, what ?"
Bob: "Yes we have no bananas."

Gale: "You said for us to study the negro problem today."
Elsie K: "I wish I had M.adge's knowledge of Sociology."

Miss Hunter: "Fine, how would you do it ?"
John: "Stop raising garlic."
Miss Hunter: "Now let's stop this foolishness and-"

much spare time." etc.
Miss Hunter: We also have an examination tomorrow and now the boys can all
go to the office while I make out the questions, so that they won't disturb me."
All Boys: "I think so too." fExit boys to officej. fCurtainJ.
"And now you've heard the honest facts, and so I'l1 call a halt:

Ada, Ohio, Sunday Afternoon
I take my corona upon my lap to strike off a few lines to you. Remember back
home in the seventh grade you and I were pals, Emery, and you were almost as smart
as I was in school. Well, I'm a different sort of a fellow now and even tho I am educat-
ed, I'm not proud like you think I might be. '
Things are a lot different in Ada High from what they were back on the farm.
You probably go to bed with the chickens down on the farm, but I never go to bed here
in the city before 9:30 or 10:00 o'clock. You might think you couldn't stand it, but you
could get used to it in the end.
Getting an education now is a lot different from what it used to be, Emery. Our
fathers sat up all night until the candle burned out reading Pilgrim's Progress, but
here in the city we have electric lights and instead of studying, we dance, play poker,
and roll the bones all night. fEmery, for fear you are misled by that word bones, it
isn't as bad as it might sound to you with your lack of ignorance. I'm just learning
to play and it seems to be an easy and amusing method of giving dad's iron to the
The teachers here insist that we don't let our studies interfere with our liberal
education, and so we have to be careful on that point and not catch them with their
Since your just a farmer you might not be interested in most of the things here
in school but you might be interested in the daily milk lunch system we have here. No,
we hi-gh school students don't get any, it's just the grade kids and those of the faculty
that need it most. Every morning between classes we see them down in the hall suckin'
on a straw and it seems funny that those grown folks must still have their. bottle!
Sometimes the big cheese himself takes a bottle too, but he always ducks into the grade
room with the rest of the kids when he sees us coming. 'Fraid we'll see him with his
bottle, I suppose. Remember how much milk we used to feed that little black and
white runt, the one in the last litter that razor back had? Well the runtlhere takes
the most too!
The other day in literature class the teacher asked a guy we call "Snipe" if he
had ever read "To a Waterfowl." The guy took his cud out of his mouth and answered,
"No, I never knew one could get that close, but sometime I'll try and tell you if it's
possible. "Emery, the teachersjust sudden like fell on his eversharp and died, and we

The "country club," they eat the grub For razor strops don't make pork chops
The cooking class provides And you can't eat them with grace.
They do their best, but lack of zest
And the appetite besides. But now don't grieve, for I believe
That they'1l turn out alright
Oh, what is so nice as a juicy slice And can prepare a dinner rare
Of beef-steak on your plate When hubby returns at night.
But Le Page's glue and harness too
That kind of stuff don't rate. He'll say, "My dear, this repast here
It surely takes my eye"
Yes, steak is good, when served as food "Why yes" she'll say, "I learned that way
But everything has its place Back at old Ada High."

That my grade is sixty five, The diploma is thy 8021
For the first half year is closing, Watch! lest next year thou returnest

And exams will soon arive.
I must know my stuff persactly
Lives of great men oft remind us
Or I sure am bound to flunk
They were fools as big as we
And to spend five years in High School For they all were nuts on women
Doesn't seem to me much bunk. Just the same as you and me.

The big, browed man held in his hand a large, sharp glittering knife on which
there were spots of blood not yet dry. His terrible eyes had blazed as he saw her come
in and now she was the only one who remained. He ran his thumb over the edge of the
knife and knew it was still sharp.
"Have you no heart?" the girl asked with quivering lips. He seemed so mon-
strous beside her frail form.
"No" he growled hoarsly, and she noticed that there were specks of blood on his
bare, muscular, fore-arms.
After a moment the girl said, "Then I'll take forty cents worth of liver."

I'Ve Often heard the story
That love is quite abstract
But I cannot believe it
Because it's not a fact.
Take good care of your eyes. See
us to see better. Oh, I know all about it
For I've a gal so sweet
And last night on the back porch
Our love was most concrete.

The hours I spend with thee alone
Are as a snail, so slow they pass,
I count them o'er and heave a groan
My civics class! My civics class!
Each day more work, ten chapters yet,
At evening when I hit the hay
I dream of h-1, I can't forget
Four thousand references each day.
The hours I spend on that dear stuff
I hope to heck they soon shall pass
I count them o'er and holler "Nuff"
My civics class! My civics class!

A cry rings out upon the air-
The students stagger up the stair-
The smoke and fumes are sweeping thru,
"What is the smell?" The air turns blue.
The faculty's mad, they rave like fiends
The cooking class has burned the beans!
EVERY GIRL WANTS
A BETTER HUSBAND
Indeed, she wants the best husband in the world--a husband
she can be proud of, before her family, before her friends,
before everybody. Stand before a mirror and see if you look
like the man Mary's wishing for.
No? Then gq down town, get those new clothes you have
intended to buy, put them on, look in the mirror once more-
and then go forth and captivate her.
Every woman knows that the road to a man's heart is
through his stomach. Every man ought to know that the
road to a woman's heart 'is throungh her eyes.
IT PAYS TO DRESS WELL
