Farewell to thee, clea'r Faculty,
Oufr thanlfs to thee 'is tenderecl,
For lesson taught and battles fouyht,
For love and sefvice frendererl.
You made us toil, you made us worlc,
Yet eheerily you encouraged
Ounr lagging steps, nofr let us slzfifrlc
The wotlc you put before us.
Full many a time you had to use
Autllovity to quell us,
Fofr we were Sure a lively bunch
And liked to be quite zealous.
And many times your patience tfried
By pranks we all enjoyed,
And dfrew a ffrown and word of seofrn
At methods we employed.
Well do we know at many times
Your zoorlc has not been happy,
And sufrely 'tufas an hateful taslc
To teach a class so nappy.
And though, we could not penfect be
We think you have enjoyed
A class as full of pep and glee
As we to be appeafr.
Dear Faculty, so lrind and f'l'1lC,
Alas! now we hate to go,
But we 'must constantly advance
For you have taught us to gfrouv.
Fafreuvell to thee, dear Faculty,
As a toast we pen this line,-

more than appreciated his efforts.

Although "Ray" has had no opportunity to assume entire

X Q- X 7 P 'f T History of the Class of 1929
Four years of achievement have passed into time's eternal discard, and the
record for Ada High of the Class of 1929 is now complete. Four years of endeavor,
four years of success, four years of progress, have made for the Class of '29 a most
enviable record, which should serve as an incentive for succeeding classes to follow
on this established course of progress and accomplishment.
The Class of '29 has always been dominant in the activities of the school. The
achievements of its students have brought honor and fame to the class and to the
school. The contributions of this class to athletics, to dramatics, to literary and
forensic enterprises, and to all causes for the higher development of the school, have
been so outstanding that they make the history of the class an honor and a pleasure
Our class was organized September, 1925, with Royal Shanks as president,
Paul Routson as Vice President, and Florine Baransy as Secretary-Treasurer. We
chose red and white as our class colors and have carried them throughout our high
school career. In our Freshman year we were well represented in school activities.
Royal Shanks won the Franklin essay contest, and Josephine Conner received the
first "A" among our girls for her ability in handling the basketball. We ca1'ried off
the honors in the Interclass Contest and won the silver loving cup, with Royal Shanks
winning the oration and Florine Baransy the short story.
The Sophomore year found our class forging ahead with unabated enthusiasm
toward a goal of progress. The Class of '29 was organized in its second year with
John States as president, Tom McGuffey as Vice President, and LeIrma Landon as
Secretary-Treasurer. This year Royal was again successful and won the Lincoln
essay prize. And again at Interclass we were successful and the cup remained in our
possession. In addition to these scholastic activities, we also furnished our share of
athletes in football, basketball, and track.
Now comes the record of that illustrious year of the Class of '29-its third year.
The officers who directed the class during this year were George Hindall, president,
Claudine Graves, Vice President, and Margaret Peterson, Secretary-Treasurer. During
this third year, many of the classmen entered the ranks of football. Also in basketball
the class had capable representatives. Ray Harding, Harry Greenawalt, Miller Brown,
"Johnny" States, t'Cliff" Harding, Paul Routson, and George Hindall, all did their
"bit" to make this season a success, and we were all justly proud of the purple "A's"
our class received.
The Junior-Senior banquet was an important feature of the spring. We banqueted
the Seniors royally, although it made our financial standing not so high. Again we won
the Interclass Contest. We don't want to be selfish but we would like to have it just
once more. tSince the time of writing this wish has been realized. In winning the
contest four consecutive years, we feel that the Class of 1929 has set a record that
will not soon be equalled.J
Finally we came to the rank of Seniors. Again we elected a very capable set of
officers: Walter Routson, President, Ray Harding, Vice President, and Elizabeth
The annual play given by the class was entitled "Arnold Goes Into Business,"
and was one of the greatest dramatic successes of the year. A capable cast of thirteen
members presented the play.
During the remainder of the year the worthy spirit of the Class of '29 was
evident in every branch of school life. A most splendid year was brought to an
eventful close. Achievement was the keynote of the endeavor of the class.
Now-Commencement-and the culmination of our high school career. With so
magnificent a record behind us, and the world before us,-
"Let us then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate,
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait."

Pluto is seen attempting to place a frigidaire. His red cap is aslantbetween his
horns and his red flannel suit is very dirty due to the stubbornness of the frigidaire
in being installed. Pluto speaks, "Well, without a doubt this is a great improvement.
Business ought to pick up. I must put something in the catalogue about cool refreshing
drinks being served here."
"Yes, Mr. Devil," I agreed. "It would be a splendid attraction for your business,
but say, Old Top, let me help you." And with a few experienced twists I had it perfectly
"Whoopee," he cried, "I'll give you your long wanted desire to visit the Cavern
of Careers for that nifty piece of work. You sure know how."
IVe walked through several weird and algae overhung passages until we came
to a larger boulder. He knocked three times and to my extreme surprise it moved
away. There stood a grotesque dwarf, peering through long shaggy lashes straight at
me. I was not long held in suspense and fear, for the dwarf drawled. in a low,
rumbling sound, "Well, well, you came at last, did you? Now that you are here, I
don't mind telling' you, you are the first spirit that has ever entered the Cavern of
Careers." I entered, prepared for most anything and was not surprised to see little
people swarming around like so many bees. We approached one man who was weaving
a sort of web of the sheerest material, as beautiful as the most fickle could desire.
"A beautiful career as it appears at first glance, but look at it more closely," rumbled
on my host. I did so and was surprised to see on its surface many blots and disfigura-
tions. So many careers seem enviable at first glance, but are to be avoided when under-
This onlv served to arouse my curiosity further, so I asked my host if I could
look at the careers of the Prehistoric Ada High Class of 1929. "By all meansf, he
said. "I'll be proud to show you that group. It is among my best." He drew forth a
long key, unlocked another door, and we entered another chamber. In the middle of the
rcom I espied a sign, f'Careers of Ada High Class of 1929l' and dashed wildly over.
The first career was that of Frances McAlpin. It was unusually large but on
closer inspection I found it to be united with that of Miller Brown who owned a chain
of drug stores in Monroe.
Next came that of Paul Routson, a musician of great renown, farming near Ada
in the summer months.
Ruth Gribbens made a large fortune selling the record "My Last Love" by
George Allen and Charles Fisher were still wisecracking and had successfully
filled the vacancy of Bud Fisher, the great Mutt and Jeff cartoonist.
Margaret Peterson and Claudine Graves, being inseparable, had established a
home for wealthy old bachelors and were reaping rich rewards.
Lois Jean Judkirs and Florine Baransy had recently visited "The Little Church
Around the Corner" and bestowed eternal happiness on the lives of two of that
Prehistoric Class. John States and Lester Evans.
Walter Routson, with his witty tongue and amusing laugh, had made a name for
Ioiirself and was now president of the I. W. W. Association with headquarters at
Robert Wallick, retaining his Ada High football ability had taken the place of
Red Grange and was seriously contemplating accepting his last movie offer.

Next came Eileen Reed, with her wonderful ability to talk. She was general
adviser to the president of the U. S. and was said to be practically running the
Clarence Estill had turned out to be a great wizard along electrical lines. His
latest invention was an electrical device to do all the studying for the students of
Ada High School.
Harry Greenawalt's long sought desire was at last granted. He was the proud
owner of a large dance hall near Ada.
Margaret Bowers and Mildred Boutwell were promising young debutantes just
returned from Europe where they had been welcomed into all the royal society.
Helen Lowman was a successful scientist and explorer and had given' many
valuable donations to the World's Museum after a prolonged hunt in the wilds of
Donna vonKlinger was a famous model in one of the exclusive shops in Chicago.
LeIrma Landon had successfully made her debut and led a life of leisure as all
other great opera stars do.
Next came a much blotted one. It was that of Lawrence Miller and Adelbert
Shadley who had attempted to gain fame and money quickly by running a model
dairy. They had gone bankrupt and were now rising young bond salesmen.
Raymond Harding, the basketball hero of that prehistoric class, was still in
the athletic business and had won world-wide fame in the 2000 Olympics held at Alger,
Dick Michael, after that famous Senior Class Play of '29, took a liking to French,
went to Paris, married a "petite" French girl, and is now stage manager in a large
Royal Shanks, the great prehistoric orator, was now a member of the Supreme
Court, much envied by his former classmates.
Carl Deringer surprised his friends and became a great vaudeville actor.
I began to wonder if there were no teachers from that illustrious group, but looking
closely at the next I found that Mary Wolfrom now filled the vacancy of Miss
Duncan in the new Ada High School building, the third since that memorable building
that passed out in 1929.
Louise Hammitt had settled in Bucyrus and established a tea room much fre-
quented by A. H. S. students.
Eugene Hemphill and Dorothea Dome, after a prolonged courtship were married
and seemed happy. Eugene was a rising young lawyer.
Next came Clifton Harding, the great lover of sleep. Having fallen heir to several
millions he had installed feather-backed seats in the old building and thus made school
Manuel Schmidt had taken a great liking for dear old Ada and was now a
professor at "Lehr's Grand Mistake."
Elizabeth Baker had moved to Detroit where she owned a fancy lamp and drapery
shop. It is patronized to a large extent by the opposite sex who find that her variety
of selection always pleases them.
George Hindall has been placed on the U. S. marathon team, due to his speed in
covering the distance between his home and Kenton.
Gladys Reed has secured a position as stunt rider in the Barnum Sz Bailey Circus.
She thought a college education the bunk and says she just loves her work. She is
never lonesome or homesick because of her companion, Hale Messenger, general
manager of lighting the tents and painting the zebras.
I began rummaging around, peering into dark corners and throwing careers in
all directions. My host, hearing the noise, waddled over to where I stood. "Oh-ho," he
chuckled, L'Thou seekest thy own career but that you cannot see."
Being thoroughly satisfied with my investigation of that famous Prehistoric
Group, I returned to Hades to get a cool refreshing drink from my friend Pluto.
JOSEPHINE CONNER, '29.
Senior Class Gl'Ll1il'lbl6
Would anyone kindly tell me why this thing has to be written? If you can tell
me that, perhaps you could tell me why they had to pick on me. It's a wonder they
c'ouldn't have done it during a season of bad weather instead of on the best day we've
had since last summer. Hut I suppose that is easy to explain. I'm a member of the class
of '2S?. We get all the tough breaks! Even the people of the town seem to have
something against us and refused to build a new school building until we were out of
high school, We never did anything to them except to bother them occasionally when
we were somewhat younger. There is a possibility of course that they were simply
afraid to let go of some of those 1890 sheckles that they have been nursing ever since
they have laid hands on them.
But we wouldn't mind if that was all that was bothering us. Those insipid, both-
ering Freshmen, who are continually bothering us with their meaningless prattle
about nothing in particular are probably our biggest worry. They wander about the
corridors with that blank look on their foolish faces which is enough to get on anybody's
nerves and when they get on the streets they assume an air of importance that would
mislead a stranger into thinking that they might possibly possess a minute quantity
of the knowledge of life. But I suppose we will have to tolerate them during our few
remaining weeks in Ada High School.
Now to make things worse. all Seniors are required to take Civics which would
be a very interesting subject if Mr. Gray wouldn't try to make up a new kind of test
every week. He's sure invented more impossible kinds of tests than Seashore ever
dreamed of. But he's no different than the rest of the faculty, he simply chooses a
r'ifferent kind of torture. They're a terrible lotg they stay up every night trying to
think up harder questions to put in the six weeks' tests. But we are told they are an
evil that must be put up with fin high schoolj.
Once before in this useless narrative I mentioned the Freshmen. But they are
not the only ones that bother us. The Sophomores are not much better. Just because
they know where room 12 is they think they are experienced in all things of life.
All of them think they are promising young athletes and insist on staying out for
teams until they are automatically dropped from the squad.
The Juniors are not much better than the Sophomores. They have the nerve to
call themselves upperclassmen and try to play the part, but Oh, what a miserable
The old building can have a wider range of temperatures at one time than any
other one spot on the globe. It contains more prehistoric caricatures than any museum
aw the United States.
But v.'hat's the use of going on like this? I'm not getting any place this way and
the reader is probably iiot being cheered up to any great extent so I might as well close
trap for a while.

The Juniors were indeed lucky this year to have
their president that piece of "ood goods in a small
package" which answers to the name of Fry. Johnny has
made an admirable show of his executive abilities and
has the well deserved appreciation of the whole class.
Ilillic, our vice president of this year, has not had
an opportunity to exhibit her wares, but we feel sure that
she could do it with the success with which her under-
takings are always blessed.
"Here, you Juniors, when do you intend to pay your
dues anyway?" It's just the old, old story-but this time
it's Edna who broadcasts it. And we really are thankful
for such an efficient 'tloud speaker," for due to her
efforts we can follow the time-worn custom of our annual
banquet again this year.

One day as I was wandering in the country I came upon a band of gypsies-real,
honest-to-goodness ones they were, too, with spangles and
tambourines. As another
proof that they were real gypsies-after I left them I found I had left my wrist
watch with them.
I was talking to one of the young girls, about my age,
fortunes" or anything I especially wanted to know about
future. I decided to test her and I said. "Are you sure you
can ask you?" She nodded her head so I asked her to tell
about the present Junior class. She remarked that it was
paid her well she told me the following story.

Three years ago, last September, a large group of intelligent looking young people
entered the old office of Ada High School to enroll. The Seniors called them green-
horns, freshies, and other such names, but they were not as green as they imagined.
The Freshmen soon became a part of the high school organization and entered the
various activities. As class officers Carl Kiblinger was chosen for President, Arden
Candler, Vice President, Rowena Smila, Secretaryg and Loine Ash, Treasurer.
Charles Anspach, a member of the class, won his letter in football and Ted Arnold in
basketball. Of course these poor innocents had much trouble with slips of all colors,
Mr. Findley, Miss Crawford, and like things, but these were soon forgotten when they
became elevated Sophomores.
This year when Interclass time came around the Sophomores' sign worked better
than their "Old Oaken Bucket" of the year before. Wilhelmina Arbogast won the
reading for the Sophomores in the contest. More letters were received, William
Campbell's name being added to the list of the wearers of the "A", The class officers
were for this year: Arden Candler, Presidentg Ben Gilmore, Vice Presidentg Wilhelmina
When they went out of the assembly room into the "Junior Home Rooms" you
could just feel an air of pride around them. They, too, began speaking of the Freshmen
as "under classmen" and they began to avoid being excited when asked to "perform"
in chapel. The class officers were: John Fry, Presidentg Wilhelmina Arbogast, Vice
Presidentg and Edna Burean, Secretary-Treasurer.
The class, in general, takes a great interest in the Chorus and musical contests
and operettas. Rowena Smila won in Interclass, the short story for the Juniors." Here
the story stopped, "I am sorry," she said, "But I have forgotten the rest."
I was sorry too, for I wished to know what the future would bring our class but
only time will tell what worlds are ahead of the Junior Class of '29 to conquer.

Another year has rolled around and we are Juniors. What a grand and glorious
feeling! Since our class entered high school it has forged to the front quite noticeably
and why not with so many illustrious members? We've contributed our share to
athletics and next year we're going to crash through in the biggest way possible with
that "big mass of muscle" Bill Campbell captaining the forthcoming All-Ohio football
team. The Almighty Arnold, triple threat man in the sport world, will assume command
in the basketball sphere along with Evelyn McGinnis, who we grant is beautiful all
right-but not so dumb.
The year has been crowded with big events for the Juniors and the biggest yet
to come, that annual affair, the Junior-Senior Banquet, when the Juniors send the
Seniors off into the world at large. The banquet is well under way and it is going
to be the best ever. The treasurer will readily enough verify that last remark. The
Seniors can razz us all they want to but they are all the least bit jealous because the
Juniors get to spend a year in the new building. While next year they are out working
hard or plodding along at college just one out a thousand others, the Juniors will be
in their element enjoying all the old high school activities in a marvelous new building.
NVe managed that pretty well,
"Oh-h-h-h!', Don't tell anyone. What can it be? Rumor after rumor floats around
the old corridors-everywhere the buzz of suppressed excitement. Pauline Long is
married and no April fool about it. While we have partially lost Pauline we have,
however, gained a valuable addition in Jay Phillips. When it comes to artistic ability
that boy surely rates. And that reminds me that the window sign was a huge success,
a triumph for the Juniors, for we can appreciate the lights not going out. We won't
mention any names but several well known seniors admitted after Interclass night
that they lost a little of that ever present confidence and succumbed to anxiety when
the Juniors came "to the front" as it were. Next year we'll be satisfied with nothing
less than the cup.
We hope our sister class, the Freshmen, have noticed our prominent berth in high
school affairs. We remember only too well the hard knocks of the "primary year," our
eagerness to make special reports and to do outside reading with a zeal
prompted, as Mr. Findley would say, "bv the right attitude." Last year marked quite
an advancement in class room etiquette. A large number became adept at conversing
out loud in place of the customary whispers. A few of the more radical members
attempted-I say attempted-sleeping in class and gum chewing became an art. What-
ever there remained to do has been adopted and done this year. Non modo expectamus
orbes novos vincere.

The Junior A B Cs
A-stands for Arnold, our illustrious Ted,
Who can run real fast and stand on his head.
B--stands for Babe and Billie, too,
Who are both quite peppy and appeal to you.
C-stands for Clair, the Latin shark,
Who in the world will make his mark.

Who wears short skirts and curls her hair.
E-stands for Evelyn, our basketball queen,
And when it comes to looks-Oh boys! she's keen.
I+'-is for our own small Fry
Who despite his size is quite some guy.
G-is for Georganna and Golda Mae
Who are both good-natured and very gay.
H-is for Helen, our movie fan,

I--is for Imogene pleasantly plump
Who in a French classroom you never can stump.
J-is for Juniors of whom there are many

K-is for Kibby our plastered sheik
Who visits Ada's hennery at least once a week.
L-is for Lucille our own sweet rose
Who has lots of friends but very few foes.

For in this one thing we rate above par.
O-is for Orville with the unruly hair
But when it comes to brains Orville's right there.

A group of efficient hard workers guided the
Sopohoniore Class through its course this year. Jack
Burean as "head manl' served his class splendidly and
displayed great ability.
Alice Neiswander, has always been ready to do her
bit whenever needed and did her best when called on
Margaret Petersen, although a new member of our
Class, has done especially well as treasurer. Through her
ability the ledger has always been balanced.

1929 - Sophomores - 1931
Jack Burean - - - President
Alice Neiswander - Vice President
Margaret Petersen - - Secretary-Treasurer
In 1927, we, as Freshmen, started on what seemed to us a new path-seventy-three
of us with our aims high. As has been said and as always will be said, we wamli-red
around the corridors during the first few days, seeking our respective rooms.
We had as our home room sponsor the much respected Miss Crawford.
Those who contributed much to the success of the year were the officers:
Charles Allen ----- President
Oren Dickason - - Vice President
Myra Lou Lowman - - Secretary-Treasurer
As the term wore on we were looked on more favorably by our upper classmen.
Then came Interclass. Those from the Sophomores who took part were: Bernard
Freeman, oration, and Virginia Wilson, short story. We won the oration, which gave
us better hope for the coming years.
There were five girls chosen for the basketball squad with Mrya Lou Lowman as
manager of the team. Everyone can testify to the fact that those who took part in
representing the class during the year certainly played their part successfully.
Those from our class that participated in music, basketball, Interclass, campaigns,
and the like, had attributed to the school what was expected of them. At the end of
the term we had attained all that we had strived for.
It was with greater assurance that we started upon our second year of high
school' life. This year we feel ourselves an important part of the Student Body, and
ask no question of anyone but instead assist our fellow students. Our class now contains
sixteen members less than at the beginning of the Freshman year.
Virginia Wilson and Mildred Main represented our class in girls' basketball this
year. Robert Stumm carried the class colors in boys' basketball. Many more members
of the Sophomores came out for class basketball, and we are proud to say that they
won the championship.
The Sophomore class made up the greater part of Mrs. Mowen's Chorus. Cther
members of the class assisted Miss Crawford in Library work, and several of them
were in the high school orchestra under the direction of Mr. Routson.
In Interclass contest Bernard Freeman again succeeded in winning the oration.
Although Mildred Main lost the reading, she is worthy of mention.
The close of school is nearing and we are looking forward to the time when we can
look from the height of Juniors upon the next Sophomore class.
Our leaving the Sophomore class is not all joy, however, for we will leave some
of the teachers who have helped to promote our class and "put over" our class
During the years to come we will contribute as much to the school as is in our
power, and we shall never forget our school days.
For Ada High our own school,
We'll always stand the test.

As the sunset fades into twilight
My thoughts wander back to the time
When a lively group of students
Were Sophomores of "'29".
They were all fond of athletics
In studies 'most all rated fine
And I'm sure Old Ada Hi was proud
Of those Sophomores of "'29".
'Course Geometry brought down the grades
VVhile Latin came next in line
But tasks were comparatively easy
To those Sophomores of "29".
Then too we were overgrown "freshies"
But of greenness we showed not a sign
Though the dignifed Juniors did make fun
Of those Sophomores of "'29".
How they liked to tease the "babies,"
I'm sure it wasn't a crime
And the Freshmen really fear
Of those sophs of "'29". ii
And then when Interclass came about,
Gee, you should have seen their sign
I know everybody will remember
Those Sophomores of "'29".
So the twilight merges to darkness
And my thoughts wander back to the time
When a jolly crowd of students
Were Sophomores of "'29".

About May the eighteenth last year a group of about fifty eighth graders were
each presented with a slip of paper giving them permission to enter high school and
leave behind their childish ways. Then came September and we strolled with pride up
the steps and through the halls of the domicile of education. Hut as soon as we reached
the second floor our pride left us and a greenish feeling seemed to take its place. The
upper classmen looked at us and wondered how our class could be so green and forgot
they weren't over three years older.
Mr. Findley soon comforted us when he said he had never seen as dumb a class as
the present Sophomorcs were when they were Freshmen.
A few weeks passed and we had elected our class officers. They served their posi-
tions well and we do not regret that they represented us. We also had become used to
our schedule and could now navigate to our classrooms just as well as the Seniors
Vile soon found that in leaving the grades some of our upper classmen had forgotten
to put away their childish pranks, for in the study halls there flew missles such as
erasers and pencil tops.
We had a Ha1lowe'en party at the old High School Gym and some of the boys put
yeast in the cider to try out science experiments but no serious results occurred. We
were all glad when Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations came but sorry when they
We came back after New Year's with some new resolutions formed, which most of
us speedily broke. We worked hard for Interclass and enjoyed it very much, especially
the banquet. The rest of the year we worked hard, and we hope we may be the best

Its fun to be a Freshman,
In Ada High School
To study the whole day long,
And practice the Golden Rule.
We have a Latin teacher,
That's very fine indeed
And if we can't see clearly,
She helps us in our need.
Our English teacher is also wise
ln this she does excel
She drills us on the many forms,
But for this we like her well.
We also study Algebra,
With a teacher that's very fair
She tells us if we wish to succeedg
We must be able to find that "square,"
Mr. Gray's our science teacher,
He knows it from A to Z
He's married as you all should know
With a responsibility.
Mr. Crawford's our superintendent
He's ever willing to act,
By his faithful smile that's always worth while.
He makes the best of his tact.
You surely know Mr. Findley
He's principal of the whole force
Besides his jokes and merry tales
He teaches the Science Course.
Those days will soon be over,
Itls best that we should forget,
But somehow it seems in all my dreams,
There are memories that linger yet.

Eighth Grade Activities
Nearly nine months ago fifty-three girls and boys entered room eight ready to
assume duties and responsibilities of that grade.
Four new names appeared on the class roll, those of:-Helen Hull, coming from
the Cemetery School, Velma Mankey and Charley Crouse, from Scott's Crossing, and
Emerson Shinaberry, from Thayer School in Allen County.
October and November found the class busy with contracts and projects. Each of
the pupils made a booklet which contained data covering information of the represen-
tative cities of the United States. The class wrote personally to the different cities,
asking for any material they might have, that would help in the study of their city.
Each city responded, sending bulletins, pictures and leaflets, for which the class sent
letters of thanks. When the books were judged, seventeen received the highest marks
for content, while fifteen others were commended for book covers.
At the Christmas Season, the Vision of Sir Launfal was written into a play. The
class was divided into groups, and the one giving best interpretation was given thc
honor of presenting it before the High School Students at the Chapel Hour.
When the second semester opened, the boys and girls were delighted with two new
work books, one in Arithmetic and one in English, which were added by our Superin-
tendent, Mr. Crawford, giving us new and interesting work up to the end of the
On March the fourth the class presented an operetta, "Aunt llrusilla's Garden,"
to the public, thereby adding a nice sum to the piano fund, a project started by Junior
High the previous year.
With commencement only a few weeks away, the students are busy with orations,
short stories, solos and duets, but this does not keep them from discussing the coming
school year when they will enter the new Junior and Senior High School Building.
L. Messenger.-I had better be careful or I will say something sensible.
K. Wallick.-If you did say something sensible it would be funny.
The Seventh Grade
The seventh grade, under the leadership of Miss Beam and Mrs. Hawk, is on the
seventh rung of the ladder of education. During the year we have done many things
We have always done our part in the selling of tickets for the chicken dinner,
operetta and school fair.
During the fair we won the poster prize for the best "Good English" poster. This
prize of one dollar was won by Robert Burnett.
On the night of the eighth grade operetta we sold 3518.75 worth of candy. Between
acts a sextet entitled "Moon Mists" was played. Five of the players were from our rooin.
There are eleven players from our room in the Grade School Orchestra and one in
the High School Orchestra. Several of our students have taken part in the High School
The chapel exercises in our room have been very inte1'esting. They have included
readings, plays, duets and solos, both vocal and instrumental.
At the first of the year we elected a student council. Robert Gillespie was the
president, Charles Burriss, vice president, and Edith Cotner, Avalon Danner, and
Martha Helen Cole were elected helpers.
We are ready to start to the eighth grade in the new Junior High School. We will
work for higher education in High School and College. We are all striving hard to win
thc merits of a good education.

Back in the fall of 1927 there came to Ada High
a man we call "Bill," a man who taught us that along
with hard fight we must hold clean sportmanship
aiizove all things.
Coach Theisen is a graduate of Wittenberg and
after knowing him as we have learned to know him the
past two years one can easily see why he was picked
all conference end. He is the ideal of honesty and good
spirit and besides teaching us to play football and bas-
ketball he has spread the gospel of clean athletics in
Ada High, so no matter what teams we fall before, we
may have lost a game, but still we have won a victory.
One of the rays of light "amidst the en-
circling gloom" of an athletic association deeply
in debt. was our faculty manager, Clarence Gray.
For, with his appointment to this "coveted" place,
the pursuit of the elusive dollar was begun, and
it was tracked to its lair.
No music was sweeter in his ears than the
ring of nickels and dimes, dimes and quarters and
dollars as they dropped into the athletic coffers.
Mr. Gray is deserving of much praise, for
he has generously sacrificed his time and earnest-
ly endeavored to make our athletic association a

The athletic board is an organization not often heard of around the school, but nev-
ertheless it is the power behind the throne in athletic circles and deserves much credit
for the many things accomplished this year. Through the careful management of our
principal, coach, captains and managers of the teams, who comprise the board, there
have been no rattling, noisome knocks, but everything has adjusted itself harmoniously,
and every cent has been made to count. The players and students of old Ada High are
very appreciative of the work done by this year's board, who have helped to carry on
the slogan "Ada High is Known of Old."

Ada Rah! Ada Rah! Rah! Rah, Ada! Was there any pep in Ada High this year?
Yea, verily, for Pete, Smila, and Jinx could make 'em cheer any time and every where
and these cheers were the "what" that gave life to our teams and enthusiasm to
Pete as head "cheer instructor" has certainly earned her "A" by her efficient and
unselfish work in developing' the vocal cords of the student body and we are sure that
Smila and Jinx will carry on the good work for Ada High and these vocal gymnasts
will still continue to play their part in cheering the teams to victo1'y.
When the years have passed and we look back over the path we have trod we will
still continue to cheer for Ada High and know that no moments of our lives have been
any happier than those spent cheering for the Purple and Gold.
In this age of modern inventions and electrical appliances I am sure it would
take an exceptional man to invent a cheeriii' machine equal to that of our trio so come
let's ego, let's go, and give a cheer for our Cheerleaders, a trio that can't he heat. They
are ever ready to do their hit. So three cheers for Pete, Smila and Jinx.

Football Season, 1928
Hats off-some good man has mentioned that sturdy Ada High football squad:
the bunch that made a score of 81 to their opponents' 74.
Not in games did we win but when we stop to consider t.hat in three contests we
made our points while in five our opponents went ahead, there are some few reasons
why the big Purple and Gold eleven should be commended for their efforts to keep
Ada Hi on the map.
After two weeks of fundamentals Ada opened the season with a victory over Forest
Zo to 0.
The contest at Lima South the next week was more difficult and ended with Ada
at the little end of the line 12 to 0. Still further down the line we went the follow-
lowing week when Upper Sandusky made 24-Ada knew they had been taken in by
the enemy. Hut on October twentieth we journeyed to Carey and came back renewed
in spirit, having' 30 to our credit while Carey held our former place. Our boys were
working hard to beat Kenton on Northern's field, and, being in good scrappy condition,
wc took the field anl brought back the biggest score of the season, Ada 31, Kenton 0.
The next week we played the husky Lima Central bunch who took the score of
twelve back to Lima and left us nothing. The same thing' happened for Tiffin for they
took 20 home to our nothing.
The curtain was rung down on the season of '28 when on a muddy field we bowed
to a 6 to 0 defeat.
Individually and collectively the team was distinguished for its loyalty, persistence
and grit, and if the players continue after graduation to tackle their problems and
:iim for a definite goal. then the High School Gridiron has helped fulfill some of its
obligations as a high school sport.

Track as a department in Ada High Athletics has never been in the "calcium
glare," due largely to limited facilities. The little recognition that has been received is
due principally to the initiative of the students. That there is latent ability within thc
student body is proven by the manner in which we came through the county track meet,
April 26, organized the day of the meet: we took eight firsts, four seconds, two thirds,
and two fourths to win the meet. With the new school building nearing completion and
a cominodious athletic field in the process of construction we are looking forward to
big things from Ada High Tracksters.
Formerly our spring athletic events consisted solely of an Interclass meet, spon-
sored by the Hi-Y Club, and ai sectional meet held on the O. N. U. oval, where our
athletes "strutted their stuff." This year our schedule was slightly diverse, for a county
meet has been inaugurated and forms an important nucleus of our spring season. Ada
turned out in force ftwelve boys and one girll to show the rest of the county what
our untrained athletes could dog and "par consequence" really did.
The first event chalked up was the hundred yard dash with "Swifty" States
pulling down five points for first place. Long took first in pole vault with Stumm
second for eight more points, Anspach fourth in shot put, Campbell fourth in javelin,
States first in broad jump with Stumm third, Hindall second in high jump with
"Mick" Fisher tied for third, placed us in the field events. Hindall took third in the
220 dash, and of course Arnold came through with three firsts, 440, 880, and mile
run. Strahm came from behind to take an easy second in the 880, while "Flashy
Finish" Evans gave us an outlook on his stamina by taking a fine second in the mile
event. Both relay teams, mile and half mile, came through to clean up all events. Our
half mile team with R. Fisher, C. Fisher, Hindall, and States, won after a hard
struggle, while our mile team, Reese, Stumm, Evans, and Fisher, gave us a real
exhibition of 440 running to easily take the meet.
All the fellows showed fine form in all events, so we expect to give some of the
teams in this oncoming sectional meet the full benefit of Ada ability, stamina, and
Future of Athletics
This really could be expanded into a broad and varied subject, for according to
many authorities, athletics as well as radio is still in its infancy, so in serving as a
prognosticator of future athletics it seems probable that the innnediate future would
comply with the requisite of time and space for this article.
But seriously, with the advent of our new school building and greater and more
"beautiful" playing facilities, there should really be a great future for thee athletes
as well as the athletics of Ada High School. First of all, our added facilities will make
it possible to have the much desired gym class. Soccer, baseball, and track will also
serve to steady the nerves after a hard day's labor and the added curriculum will in
all probability aid that 'ere old Ada pep. In fact, one eminent reporter obtained this
confession from Coach W. L. Theisen, "I expect to make up for the loss of the class
of '29 by inaugurating such a prominent and outstanding brand of athletics in new
fields of sports as to well overcome the loss of Ada High School's most athletic class."
So you see with this view in mind and with the aid of an efficient and influential
coach, the athletics of Ada High School Should reach peaks never before dreamed of.

It t.akes no boisterous or exaggerated remarks to voice the merits of our Basketball
department, for appreciation of those merits has been consistently shown by our
staunch supporters. We are glad to say that wherever Ada High's team is playing
their rooters are the real sports of the crowd. With our team, the same as honest
men in life, we do not seek victory through a lucky loop hole, but by true technique
do we play the game. To this end all our athletics are directed and the joy of doing
brings its own rewards, for joy is necessary-it is a concomitant of health-giving sport
With only two weeks practice we launched into action against Forest and defeated
liaum's team 14 to 9. The next week we hung the scalp of Upper Sandusky and thc
Alumni on our belt. On the following Friday our second team played llola, but took
the short end of the score 14 to 20. Saturday night, Lima South traveled to Ada and
found us well worth while for at the end of the second period the score was eighteen
all. A three-minute overtime period was played during which Lima South landed a
couple of counters to beat us by four points. St. Rose came next and we succumbed to
the youngsters' tricks, 32 to 20. Liberty, Hancock county class "B" champs, cama
to play Ada basketball but the science of the Adaites was too much for them. We sent
them home, beaten by five points, 10 to 15.
It is encouraging to know that there is victory in defeat, but great honor to be 11
a team on your own floor and when Kenton strode across the floor they strode right
back again. Referee's decision, 23-15.
We found Tiffin at home and abroad worthy opposition, letting down both
games to our neighbors. The next three games, Rawson, Kenton, and Bluffton, fighting,
hard to down the Purple and Gold. In each game until the last minute it was a tie
but in accents loud and inevitable, Ada took the 20, the other three teams 21. Some
games! Playing Lima Central on their floor without our coach as a guiding hand
resulted in our defeat, but the following week we traveled to Wapak and brought home
a score of 33 to 16.
Thus endeth the history of the 1928-29 basketball season. Five of our six letter men
being Seniors, we are looking forward to an entirely new team next year, headed bv

The editor of this section has been sorely pressed to produce an alibi for this
season's basketball team. The hard luck stories usually so serviceable for this purpose
must, alas, be cast aside. "The tale of the jinx" that remorselessly pursued the team and
threw dust in their eyes whenever they had a good chance, must likewise be cast aside.
We cannot even put forward the time-honored fiction of a large hospital list.
It had been planned to give details of the games but the score book has been
mislaid and members of the team refuse to testify.
One of the three rays of light "amidst the encircling gloom" of a bad season shines
out of our home game with Kenton-when the team showed its worth and remarkable
ability in holding the score to a tie.
Although the season's record in games won is not just what the team had hoped
to make it, still there is every reason the school should take pride in its girls, for
individually and collectively the team was distinguished for its loyalty, persistence, and
grit, and had there been a more even break in luck it would have finished the season
among the leaders.

Review of Players
C. a "RAY" HARDING. "Cap" Harding was the main point getter. He won several contests
all by his lonesome.
F. "PERU," ROUTSON. This boy showed fine form on the floor as well as off.
F. "DEL" HINDALL. 'At boy could sink 'em 'ere long shots, as well as catch the oppos-
ing guards asleep.
G. "SLICKER" STATES. Our blond streak was all there when it came to holding down
'at 'ere opposing forward.
F "CHUB" ARNOLD. Our three-letter man and only a junior. Next year's captain
speaks for himself.
G. HARRY GREENAWALT. Greenawalt was always there at the appointed time, and not
a better ladies' man was seen on the floor.
With high hopes, eight players, a coach, and a manager left Ada on the evening
of March the second for Bowling Green. Conceded to have one of the best teams in the
running, we planned to take part-a big part in the Sectional Tournament.
Getting a good night's sleep Qespecially 1'0Om 203 , we were prepared. We seemed a
prime favorite among the fans that Friday morning, for at eleven o'clock the wearers
of the Purple and Gold were scheduled to play Lima South. Lima was "determined,"
but when the gunman did his bit, Ada seemed to have had the most determination.
We had remained in the fray. After an afternoon of rest we played Findlay that night
at nine o'clock and still our "ol' determination" held out. Having defeated Findlay, we
were ready to enter the semi-finals against Lima St. Rose. This game kept the crowd
aroar from start to finish, but in the last few minutes of play we bowed to the
stalwart Lima lads by five points.
Having played one more game than any other team taking part in the tournament
we were literally "all fagged out" when the consolation game with Celina was called
at seven o'clock. We showed the strenuouse exercise we had taken part in the last two
days and bowed in defeat to Celina. This being the last high school game for six of our
eight men we were sorry to conclude our proceedings, but we were mighty glad to again
give up our diet of toast and eggs and know we had done our bit for Ada High.

The purpose of class basketball is to give more boys a chance to participate in
athletics. It gives the boys who are not quite of high school caliber or will not be for a
few years, a chance to indulge in some wholesome exercise.
Soon after Christmas, llr. W. L. Theisen issued the call for all would-be class
basketball players. Every class responded enthusiastically and all the teams fincluding
the Freshmenj were laying claim to the championship. After the first round in which
the Sophomores beat the Juniors rather badly, and the Seniors showed no pity for the
poor Freshmen, it was seen that the championship lay between the Sophomores and
Seniors. The first time these two teams met, the Sophs conquered 11 to 8, the next
time the Seniors beat the Sophs 11 to 6, then everybody on the teams fthat is, Seniors
and Sophsj began talking play-off. There was still one more round to be played,
however, but alas! the rejuvenated Juniors beat the Seniors 15-9, while the Sophs
were finishing off the poor Freshmen.
The Sophs clearly demonstrated their supremacy and fwith Allenj were unbeat-
able. The Seniors with six members on the varsity squad have shown what kind of a
class they had by placing five more men as runners-up in class basketball. The
Freshmen and Juniors were poor excuses for basketball teams. They both contended
fiercely for last place, but the Freshmen's inexperience finally won for them. Both
teams seem to think last place more desirable than the first.
All in all the season was a great success. Though only a few of the "old guards"
were at the games, all the players enjoyed them greatly. Much credit for this success is
due llr. Theisen for his enthusiastic support, high caliber of refereeing, publicity this
weekly pep talks in chapel always carried the results of class basketballj and for the
time which he gave freely.
This was the last class basketball season on the old floor Chonest it really isl
and in the future with enlarged facilities it is our hope that many more boys may be
able to take advantage of the opportunity to engage in this sport.
There still remains in the minds of many a doubt as to which team was really
the best among the classes, and yet no one need be disappointed. Look at the scores.
From them you can dope out whatever you want.
The Freshmen beat the Juniors, the Juniors beat the Seniors, the Seniors beat
the Sophomores. Therefore the Freshmen are the superior team. The Sophs were
adjudged the winners. Yet the Seniors chalked up 19 points against their 17, why
shouldn't they claim supremacy? But here come the Juniors and knock off this big
Senior team-a feather in their cap judging from the dope just mentioned. They must
have the strongest team! Yet they lost twice as many games as they won! So on we
go, if this circular motion doesn't make you dizzy. For we are really going round in a
circle, not getting any place. Take any part of this you want. We aim to please and
hope we have.

Several years ago a great progressive idea filled the minds of the faculty. The
result of this inspiration was the initiation of student government in the form of the
student-faculty council. This, the fourth year of its existence, has seen no diminution of
its power and influence. It is the Vox Populi about the school, the Advisory Council of
In the organizing of the student council, students from each class were selected
to assume a part in the ,Q,'OVQ1'IlITl91lt of Ada High School. The membership of this body
is made up of the superintendent and principal, whose membership is permanent, three
faculty members elected by the students, along' with two representatives from the
senior class and one from each of the lower classes. The Council has followed as a
constitution "Standards of Conduct," the official organ of school government which
was adopted several years ago by the student body.
It is the council's wish that in the years to come the organization will grow and
assume a more vital part in the government of Ada High School.

Boosters! The peppiest bunch in the school. And why sh0uldn't they bc? They'1'e
the bunch that sees that everything goes over, and looks after the pep when matters
seem lagging. In case you don't know the origin of this society, we'll tell you that the
club was organized to fill the vacancy created by the dissolution of the Pep and
Sportsmanship Clubs. Each club is represented by two members whose duty it is to
voice the expressions of that club regarding school spirit or anything that might be
beneficial and upbuilding to that spirit.
The Boosters Club sponsored the Basketball drive and under the leadership of
Coach Theisen it was a most successful campaign.
lluring the football season the Boosters staged a parade to arouse enthusiasm for
thc game with our old rivals, Kenton. And, believe it or not, the pep was not left
behind, for the next day the county seat lads went down to defeat at the hands of
the Bulldogs. The Boosters had done their part to successfully open the athletic
season of 1928-1929.
The club selected as officers: Paul Routson, Presidentg Walter Routson, Vice
Presidentg and Lois Jean Judkins, Secretary-Treasurer. This club has won many
worthy commendations and we regret that the first year of its history must end.
May the years that follow be as successful and prosperous as the one just past.

The Ada Hi-Y Club
The Hi-Y Club of Ada High School under the leadership of Mr. O. R. Findley
has in the school year of '28-'29, scored a bigger success than previously. The purpose
of the Hi-Y Club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout school and community,
high standards of Christian character. This goal may be accomplished by cleanliness:-
Clean living, clean speech, clean athletics, and clean scholarship make up the four
planks of the platform.
Many important accomplishments were carried out by the club. Basketball cartoons
were displayed and a combination of basketball schedules and score cards were given
away as a means of establishing a greater school spirit. Several evening church
services were sponsored and carried out by the members of the club.
Concerning social activities of the club, Royal Shanks entertained the club in the
form of a Hallowe'en party. George Hindall entertained the club on February 11,
and in conclusion a Hi-Y banquet was given near the end of the year. The club
members entertained their lady friends upon these occasions.
Club meetings Were held in the High School, in which about forty-five minutes
was given over weekly to Bible study.
The Hi-Y Club carries on practically the same work as the Y. M. C. A. It is not
ai club of a few but is a club Working for the betterment of the existing conditions of
the school. Its membership must be kept within certain limits, according to the size
of the school.
Officers of the year were: John States, Presidentg Royal Shanks, Vice Presidentg
George Hindall, Secretaryg William Campbell, Treasurer.

The Science Club held its first meeting Sept.ember 28, 1928, and was organized
as follows: Harry Greenawalt, Presidentg Clarence Estill, Vice President: Charles
Allen, Secretaryg and Ralph Hetrick, Treasurer. As to the work of these young men
we have no complaint.
The Science Club consists of a group of boys who are interested and who wish to
have their minds developed along scientific lines. Under the sponsorship of Principal
U. H. Findley we have succeeded in producing such a program. It should be the motto
of every club to "Get the best out of what it has," and we have tried to do so. Our
programs have been carried on by reports on different branches of science. llemonstra-
tion of some scientific ideas and happenings have proven the most. interesting. Some
of these were Electricity, Steam as Power, Heat and Its Uses, and we had many
others of such character.
The clubs are to be considered a regular class for the students, so it has been our
aim to make all our discussions and works beneficial to the club as a whole.
The Science Club is honored this year in having in its enrollment Manuel Schmidt,
a native of Cuba, and we wish to say he has proven himself a worthy and efficient

A more efficient sponsor than Miss Iloty, for a club like the Rook Lovers, could
not have been chosen, for who could have been found with a better knowledge and
appreciation of literature than this instructor'? It has been through her untiring'
efforts, and the cooperation of the members, that the club has terminated a complete
success. To those who follow as members, we sincerely hope they may grain as much
value and appreciation as we have.

The Health Club, although few in number, has proven a very interesting and
beneficial club. Each of the sixteen members as well as the sponsor has done his
part toward making' this club a success.
The purpose of the Health Club is to teach tho student the importance of good
health and how to care for his physical machine.
For each meeting a program committee consisting of three is appointed by the
president. They in turn give as many topics as can be presented at a meeting to club
members. These topics usually have to do with certain parts of the body, their work,
and the care which should be given them. Special notice has also been given to the
health habits of Roosevelt, Pasteur, Florence Nightingale, and others. These have
added much interest to the club programs.
Mr. McElwain, our sponsor, is one to whom much of the success of the club is
due. The club chose as members of the Roosters' Club, Thirza McAlpin and Paul
Routson, who have proven to be real boosters.
The club officers for this year are: Wm. Campbell, President, and Grace Moore,
As members of the Health Club, we hope that it will prove even more interesting
and beneficial in the future than it has this year.

Household Arts Club
The Household Arts Club was organized with a membership of twenty-six, all of
whom have done their best to make the club a success. Our President, Mildred Main,
has very capably filled her office and has done everything' within her power to make
the club successful. The Vice President, Golda lVIcCleary, although she has never had
to take charge, has ably assisted. The Secretary-Treasurer, Dorothea llome, has been
ready at every meeting with the record of the past meeting' and with the plea of
"Pay your dues."
At every meeting, variety is given to the program by answering: the roll call with
"a practical gift," "dccorating' my room," or "my favorite dish and how it is prepared."
The club elected Golda Clum and Hazel Cronbaug.1'h as its representatives on the

Circulus Romanus Club
The Circulus llomanus Club has passed a very profitable year in the study of
ancient Roman customs, superstitious, and beliefs.
The club was divided into three sections according' to the classes of Roman people
in Caesar's time: The Freshmen, Plebeiansg the Sophomores, Equitesg and the .luniors
and Seniors, Senatores. Each member has willingly contributed his part for the success
of the entertainments, thus manifesting his interest in the club.
The officers elected for this year were as follows: Alice Neiswander, Consul
Primus iPresidentJg Paul Kiblinger, Consul Secundus QVice Presidentlg and Mary
Irma Tighe, Scriba et Quaestor 1Secretary-TreasurerJ. Lowell Reese was appointed
Sergeant-at-Arms. These officers have endeavored to perform their functions well and
have capably filled their positions.
Some changes have been made in the Circulus Roinanus Club this year. Only two
program committees were appointed, one for each semester. This was done in order
that the programs might include a greater variety and to avoid monotony. The program
committees have spent much time deliberating upon the constituents of the entertain-
ments. The officers formed a new constitution for the club. It has provisions for the
difficulties which occur. In doing this they have endeavored to secure the interest of
the members in the club activities.
The greater part of the interest has been maintained by the efforts of our sponsor,
Miss Crawford. She has proven herself to be an excellent supervisor by her interest
in our undertakings, and has never ceased to contribute to our success.

The l'OIL'llIT1 ,lub
Early in the fall of 19128 a group of eighteen eager boys and girls got togetlier
and pushed the Forum Club into action. Officers were elected as follows: Royal Shanks,
President, Billie Arbogast, Vice Presidentg Rowena Smila, Secretaryg and Miriam
Smull, 'l'reasurer. An excellent constitution was drawn up, under the principles
of which we have been governed through this most successful year.
ln former times this club has consisted of masculine members only, but this year
the "fairer sex" has been granted the privilege ol' belonging: As an result the club has
increased somewhat in size.
Our aim is t.o become more familiar with parliamentary law and the procedure
in conducting' assemblies of all kinds. We have as guides to this aim our worthy
sponsor, Miss lluncan, to whom we wish to extend hearty cong'ratulations for her
success in club work, and a little, thin, brown book, on the back of which is written in
gold letters, "Roberts' Rules of Order." We often have short mimic meetings with
different members of the club acting' as chairman and we also have an occasional "get
together" with plenty of eats. These things make our work very interesting' as well as

The History Club
The purpose of the History Club is to afford opportunity for the student to widen
his historical interests, and to acquaint him with methods of research, sources, and
scientific judgment. lluring the past year our club has tried to the best of its ability
to accomplish these purposes. In o1'der to widen our historical interests we have
reviewed the lives of great men such as presidents and generals and have studied the
most outstanding events concerning American history as related to the history of other
nations. To acquaint ourselves with the methods of research, sources, and scientific
judgment, we have composed and given charades and dramatizations of different events
in history, such as "The Making of the First I"lag,'y "A Roman Marriage Ceremony,"
"Phe Boston Tea Party," and scenes depicting the life of the negro, taken from "Uncle
'l'om's Cabinf' Current topics have held an important place in our work this year,
and this has been accomplished by a newspaper, composed by members of the club,
debates, and discussions upon the subjects of present day interest. We have had a very
pleasant year of work and it has been through the kind cooperation of the members
of the club, the sponsor, and the officers that this is true. It can be truthfully said that
the History Club has had a very successful year.
LEIRMA LANDON, Paresident.
P. S. The officers of the History Club as were elected at the first meeting are:
l.eIrma Landon, Presidentg Charles Fisher, Vice Presidentg Margaret Peterson,
Secretary-Treasurerg and Ralph Fisher, Sergeant-at-Arms. Our members in the
Boosters' Club are Eileen Reed and Bernard Freeman.

The foods class is the hardest working' class of all. The purpose of this class is
to study foods, their selection, preparation, and use, from the following' standpoints:
Health, economic, and social.
During the first two weeks of school we studied in the text book on the subject
of foods such as fruits and vegetables, and their preservation. Then we started canning
vegetables and fruits for a part of our winter supply. I think we can say the class
enjoyed this very much for it relieved us from the monotony of study.
As the time neared for cafeteria, we studied how to bake and then proceeded to try
these methods out. We all finally learned that accurate measurement was the most
essential thing' for success.
The week following' Thanksgiving we started in to serve lunches to the faculty
and students of the school. We served anywhere from twenty to eighty a day. The
folks seemed to enjoy the dinners and especially the chicken dinners we served
occasionally. We quit serving' at the end of the first week in April.
We also did our part for the school fair. We made several attractive dishes and put
them up for sale. We hope that the classes following' will appreciate all that is being
done this year to make it easier for them next year. In the near future we will have
the privilege of serving' the annual banquet for the Hi-Y Club.
We, as a class, wish to thank Miss Thompson, our capable instructor, for her
kindness and help to us during the past year and we also owe a great deal to Mrs.
Ash, our faithful "server,"

The Alla High School Chorus is a very important part of the school. It is contin-
ually working' on sonic cantata, oporetta, or other kind ot' musical prog-rain. Mrs. Mowen
has proven herself' a faithful and helpful instructor.
The Chorus gave a typical Japanese operetta called "Princess Chrysantliemum,"
on l"chruary 4. The principal parts were taken hy Ruth Loy, Golala lVli-Cleary, Paul
Kihlinger, Homer Hawes, Wilbur Johnson, Lawrence Miller, Loine Ash, Ruth Rainsey,
Hazel Mac Cronlmaugh, and Ruth Grihlrens.
The Chorus is also planning' to take part in the district eistcclilfoml again this
year. Wo can not predict. what the outcome will he until thc time comes, hut every
other year the Chorus has shown up well. It is hoping' to do as well this year.
The group is planning' to help furnish the music room in the new building with
pianos, victrolas, and such other things as will he neeclecl.

The Ada High School Orchestra of the school year of 1928-1929 was unusually
sirall as compared to previous years, but the twenty-eight members have worked
faithfully and with the untiring efforts of Mr. Routson have had a successful year.
The organization has called forth the resources of the grades as well as the high school,
having five grade students as members. The public appearances of the Orchestra have
been few this year. They have played for the Parent-Teachers' Association, the school
fair, Interclass, the Ohio Northern University chapel, high school chapel, the Senior
play and Commencement. Several Seniors will leave the orchestra, who have been with
it during their high school career. They with the other members can look back at the
tinfc spent in the orchestra of 1928-1929 and feel that it was not spent in vain.

This year the Chorus concentrated its efforts on one master production, a three
act Japanese opcretta entitled "Princess Chrysanthemumf' It was presented lfcbruary
4 to a large and appreciative audience.
A great celebration was decreed for the occasion of the Princess coming of age.
Slim- had two suitors, and when she decided the one that was to go with her in thc
pmccssioii, the other became jealous and with the aid of a wizard cat, kidnapped her,
iziiryii g hcr off to the cave of Inky Night. She was rescued by her true suitor and
taken back to her father's court. The false suitor was captured along with the cat
and they were made to stand trial. After being condemned to death they were
pardoned and set free by special request of the Princess. As a reward for his kindness
and faithfulness the Princess married So-Tru, the true suitor.
The part of Princess Chrysanthemum was ably presented by Loine Ash. Wilbur
.Iohnson took the part of So-Tru. The Emperor What-for-Whi, father of the Princess,
who poorly pretended mercy in all his dealings, was Homer Hawes, an old favorite.
The part of the treacherous suitor, So-Sli, was played by Paul Kiblinger. Golda
McCleary was Saucer-Eyes, the wizard cat. Ruth Loy played the part of Fairy
Moonbeam, who assisted the Princess while in captivity. Lawrence Miller was the court
executioner. Choruses of Japanese girls, fairies and sprites appeared at different times.
Minor parts were taken by Ruth Gribbens, Ruth Ramsey, and Hazel Cronbaugh.
The opcretta was directed by Mrs. Aleen K. Mowen.
'4Sauce for the Goslingsv
The Public Speaking Class, directed by Miss Jeanette Duncan, gave three one-act
plays this year. This is the first attempt at such plays and we feel that it was a
success. "Sauce for the Goslingsn came first with this cast: Mr. Taylor, Miller Rrowng
Mrs. Taylor, Florine Baransyg Robert, their son, Harold Wilson, Elizabeth, their
daughter, Rowena Smilag James Ward, the guest, Paul Routsong Mrs. Lee, the grand-
mother, Louise Hammittg and the maid, Pauline Long.
Robert and Beth, much to the consternation of their parents and grandmother,
persist in using slang. They are expecting James Ward, a college friend of Bob's, to be
a guest at their home for several days. The parents, driven almost to distraction, plan
to use the slang their children use and to affect their mannerisms. Then the fun begins.
The grandmother turns into a regular flirt and resembles a giggling schoolgirl rather
than a sedate grandmother. The refined Mr. and Mrs. Taylor become breezily slangy
and quite amuse James Ward. Robert and Elizabeth soon see their mistake and make
their apologies. Mr. Ward understands the situation, and everyone is satisfied when he
asks Mrs. Taylor to be a patroness at the Junior Prom, and Elizabeth gets the coveted
bid to it from the football he1'o.

'6The Cuckooas Nestw
Human nature is alike the world over. We all want the people from home to
think we are successful, even if we are penniless. A pride which all of us possess and
which often gets us into trouble is the theme of this short play. Gately is a struggling
young lawyer who is unable to find work in the city. His wife Julie becomes acquainted
with Hilda, maid to the Henrys. Hilda is unexpectedly called away and since the
Henrys are out of town, she asks Julie to feed Mr. Piper, the parrot. Thus the trouble
starts. Julie calls Gately into the beautiful home, and then Mr. Tubb and Catherine,
his wife, an old sweetheart of Gately's, stop to visit when they see them standing in
the window. Gately makes a mistake and asks them to stay for dinner. Mr. and Mrs.
Henry arrive home very unexpectedly and to save the intruders from embarrassment,
offer to serve as maid and butler. The day is saved for Julie and Gately and when their
guests leave they offer to do the same for the Henrys, who receive a telegram that
some relatives are arriving that evening. Mr. Henry offers Gately a position in his
office so that next summer when they have company from home they will have a nice
home in which to receive them. Eugene Hemphill played the part of Gatelyg Frances
MeAlpin, Julie: Ben Gilmore, Mr. Tubbg Helen Baum, Mrs. Tubbg Walter Routson,
Mr. Henryg and Waunita Roberts, Mrs. Henry.
wfhe Ugly Duckling,
"The Ugly Duckling" could take place in any small town. Some people delight in
talking about the village school mistress and these ladies are not exceptions. Molly, the
teacher, stays at the doctor's home. While here she and Dr. Jim become very good
friends. Hattie, the doctor's sister, resents the fact that this modern girl should win
the affection of her brother. Hattie and Dr. Jim continually quarrel about Molly and
Hattie is jealous because her daughter Emmy is not the teacher. Molly is accused
of smoking and wearing indecent clothing. llr. Jim stands up for Molly and to prove
that he believes in Molly asks her to marry him. Then to surprise his sister and the
gossipy neighbors he says that he and Molly are going to Europe.
Eileen Reed effectively portrays the character of Hattieg Howard Shively is thc
doctorg Dorothea Dome is Emmy, the daughterg Helen Lowman is Molly, and Lucille
Rose is the neighbor who relays all of the choicest gossip.

The unheard-of has happened. For four years the Class of '29 has won the Inter
class Cup, which was given by the Class of 1914 to be presented to the winner of
this annual classic. Back in 1926, when this class was just a bunch of freshies, they
surprised the audience by walking off with the prize. When the cup was presented to
their president, Royal Shanks, a little speech of acceptance was givrn
that has followed the class through four years of high school life. He said the class
didn't want to be selfish with the cup and so it was their wish that in '27 the Sopho
niores should win it, in '28. the Juniors and in '29 the Seniors. They did. But we han
dwelt too long on the exploits of this class. Let us turn to the rest of the contestants
lt does not mean so much just to win, the real end of the contest is dramatic
development. It is grand to win but it is better to say, "I did my best." The contestants
were friendly rivals and that is what makes our Interclass Contest the best and
biggest event of the year. Then, too, We must not forget the services of the musicians
Although these were not judged, they deserve to be complimented.
Each class chose their representatives, who were as follows: Freshmen: short
storvgllorothy Hiltyg oration-Roy Mooreg Sophomores: reading-Mildred Main
ovation-Bernard Freemang Juniors: short story-Rowena Smila: debate-John l"1x
Wilhelmina Arbogast. and Jay Phillipsg Seniors: reading - Margaret Peterson,
debate-George Hindall. Eileen Reed, John States. The music numbers were given bs
Carolyn Sleesman, Oren Dickason, Paul Routson, Robert Strahm, and Theodou
Arnold. After the senior stunt the judges gave these decisions: to the Seniors, tht
reading and flebateg to the Juniors, the short storyg and to the Sophomores, thc

Balloons! Balloons! Bang! Bang! Bang! The last chord of the High School Song
rang through the room and the annual Interclass Banquet came to an end. The climax
of the weeks of preparation had passed. The banquet was part of our school history.
Never before was the excitement so great, the crowd so joyous.
To tell you about the banquet is a difficult task, for only by being there could you
really enjoy it. Suppose we take an imaginary journey to the banquet. We go to the
Lutheran church and lo! a regular fairyland greets us. After finding our names on the
programs, we start to eat. There isn't much noise during the next few minutes, but
just as soon as our hunger is appeased, the fun begins. Such yells! Cur throats are
dry from cheering when Superintendent Crawford' as tabulator, begins the program.
Each class responds with a toast on some type of test. Betty Morris tells of the
multiple choice, which seems to be a favorite with the Freshmen. Vlfendell Binkley,
representing the Sophomores, gives us a test which he has just received from Columbia
University. Some of those false and true questions he asks us stump even Miss
Crawford. Alexander Webb, that Junior poet, then gives us a matching test which is
very short and very sweet. Gladys Reed, the dignified Senior, tells about the comple-
tion test. We might add that she rivals Longfellow in her ability in writing Psalms.
Miss Tloty is not so hard on us. She gives us a test and aswers it herself. But this is
not all of the program. Mary Preston, Edna Burean, and William Campbell, our
musicians, give us a varied program. Last, but not least, comes the unusual part of
the gala affair. "Not Quite Such a Goose," a one-act play, is given by Harold Wilson,
Helen Lowman. Frances McAlpin, Lawrence Miller, and Louise Hammitt. The whole
plot centers around a Udinky little rose" and we all laugh when the hero becomes quite
a goose. Next, the High School Song-and it is all over. We must go. Our trip is

Chapel Program Committees
The regular chapel period on Wednesday morning is a high spot in school life.
lt is something that is looked forward to by the entire student body. Coming as it does
in the middle of the week, it breaks the monotony of the long siege of study and
classroom work. This is the one place where the whole student body meets as a unit.
Interesting programs are presented and members of the high school are given an
opportunity to display their talent. But these programs do not spring forth spontan-
eously. They are the result of hard work and careful preparation. Following are the
committees who are responsible for the programs of the year:

Senior Class Play
"ARNOLD GOES INTO BUSINESS"
Arnold Miller marries Irma Kemp after an arrangement with Mrs. Kemp, all
unknown to Irma. Mrs. Kemp desires social standing in Milburn and believes she can
get it by marrying her daughter into a prominent family. She furnishes the house,
buys the wedding presents, and pays off the mortgage until Irma, advised by her
sister Marie, refuses to live on Kemp money. She persuades Arnold, who believes he has
a weak heart, to fight his depression and go into business. Mr. Epps, the grasping
financier, has in his possession a formula which was left by Arnold's father for making
complexion mud. Larry, Epp's son, who has just returned from prison, finds half
of the formula and so Arnold enters into business with part of the formula, with thc
financial hacking of Kittridge, the butler, and the help of Aunt Mattie, Johnny
Pringle, Irma, Marie, Larry, and Violet. Mr. Le Grande comes to Milburn to see why
the shipments of mud have stopped and then the plot begins to be solved. Epps is forced
to gfve up the rest of the formula and pay for the mud he has sold, Marie gets to
marry her fish boy, Johnny Pringle, Larry and Violet plan the details of their
wedding: and Kttridge gains Aunt Mattie's consent to consider thc matter of marriage.
The business is a success, Arnold's health improves greatly, and Mrs. Kemp declares
that she is the one who encouraged Arnold to go into business, for it certainly was
not Kemp, she says.
The cast included John States as Arnold Miller, Lois Jean Judkins as Irma:
Eileen Reed, Aunt Mattie, Florine Baransy, Mrs. Kempg Eugene Hemphill, Mr. Kemp,
Margaret Peterson. the daughter Marie, Lester Evans, the fish boy, Johnny Pringle:
Ilalc Messerger, Kittridge the butler, Gladys Reed, Mrs. Lavina Flower. the town
gossip, Claudine Graves, Violet, her daughter, George Hindall, Larry Epps, Miller

April twenty-sixth dawned bright and clear, a big day in Ada High's curriculum.
There was a great deal of bustle and excitement. An eisteddfod doesn't come every
day. All morning before classes Mr. Crawford was busy signing parental excuses.
Mr. Findley, with a great deal of wisdom, had decided to take down stage scenery at
this particular moment. It looked for all the world like a bread line in the office but
with a somewhat nicer aspect. Everyone enjoys a vacation now and then.
One o'clock! Nearly all the cars intent on going to the afternoon contest had left
Ada, nearly all the pupils intent on going to school that afternoon had left home-
poor unfortunates! Despite a detour at Findlay, those eisteddfod-bound reached
Fostoria more or less intact and without further difficulty found the high school, one
such as we hope to have next year. The eisteddfod began promptly at three-thirty
P. M. in the auditorium which seemed admirably suited for the occasion. The
superintendent of the Fostoria High School was the "conductor of the day" and
Prof. C. C. Robinson of Ohio University at Athens, the adjudicator. Fostoria, Bowling
Green, and our old rival, Kenton, were the other entrants. Those very names spelled
keen competition but we weren't in the least disarmed-that is some of us weren't.
There were five numbers in the afternoon of which Ada entered three, with Loine
Ash, alto soloistg the vocal trio consisting of Loine Ash, Billie Arbogast, and Royal
Shanks, and Theodore Arnold, tenor soloist. Rowena Smila and Betty Morris were the
accompanists. Ada was not represented in the violin number or boys' chorus. Arnold
was justly lauded and came through with second prize, Bowling Green taking first.
The adjudicator indulged in some very favorable comment on Ted's voice. We wonder
if those throat lozenges helped. Although Ada remained at the bottom of the list,
everyone's hopes soared high for the evening contest.
It is needless to say that the contestants of the afternoon breathed easier.
Theodore told us that sprinting and football were nothing compared to the ordeal of
singing. The knees of more than one aspirant kept time to the music. Eats were next
in order and it didn't take anyone long to find them. On the way back to the high
school we saw more Ada people. There was not a very large number in the afternoon.
Suddenly the chorus appeared in the Northern bus which created quite a stir in
Fostoria. That gave us some prestige and confidence to begin with. The United
Brethren Church which was placed at our disposal was visited frequently for last
minute practices and then the evening session began with the baritone solo. Royal
certainly did credit to old A. H. S. by bringing home the much coveted ribbon
signifying first place. The adjudicator liked, especially, the feeling with which he
sang. Nuff said! l.Jidn't he take his inspiration right along with him?
Billie and Loine contested in the girls' duet. Of course Kenton would win that,
just one more thing to fight over. Undaunted, Mary Preston added to the score,
capturing second place in the soprano solo. Bowling Green won the piano number but
not without close competition. Lelrma played very nicely. Then the boys' quartette,
content with nothing less than first place! And oh, what harmony! The boys-to
elucidate, Theodore Arnold, Paul Routson, Royal Shanks, and Homer Hawes-never
sang better. A Kenton girl admitted that she could listen to them all night. Wasn't that
a concession and a compliment? The girls' and the mixed chorus looked and sang well
but we kind of missed out on the prizes. Better luck next time. Bowling Green and
Kenton carried off the trophies. Both received silver loving cups presented by the
Kiwanis and Rotary clubs of the city. Although Ada did not place among the winners,
the competition was close at all times, as those in attendance will testify. All these
musicians need is a little backing. The contestants went home tired but certainly not
downhearted-the day a success.

General Robert E. Lee voiced the true spirit of patriotism when he said, "Duty
is the sublimest word in the English language." It is that word duty that chal-
lenges the youthful citizenship of America to difficult tasks. The future of the world
depends in a very large measure on how youth shall answer its call.
Several ancient wonder stories of our race picture a knight coming to a magician
or god to ask some great treasure-perhaps a jewel or magic sword, or cup, or an
elixir of life.
"Ah, yes!" the magician says, "You may have it. I give it to you freely. But it
is guarded by yonder fiery dragon, whom you must overcome before you can take it."
That looks as if it might be a gift with reservations. But it is not. In every story
of that type the knight overcomes the dragon, whenever he tries, and secures thc
coveted treasure. The dragon seems to be the1'e merely to keep the cowardly and
unworthy from taking the treasure. The history of the human race reveals this samc
The treasure we would seek is the peace of the world. The path thereto has long
been blocked by selfishness, ignorance, and inhumanity.
The times demand patriotism as never before and the call of duty strikes us
squarely in the face. But, linked as we are by the ties of kinship, friendship, commercial
relationship to all other nations of the world, can patriotism be other than world
wide? We must meet the challange of world-wide patriotism, Rather than for selfish
advancement we must strive for the betterment of civilization.
That peace is preferable to war has been in all ages an axiom for religious
teachers and moralistsg it is a conception that roots back in the earlier civilizations.
Even war with its devastation and destruction has shown the efficacy of peace. Peace
is, indeed, the only foundation on which a civilization can be built. What else is the
history of civilization but the story of human nature constantly changing, constantly
suppressing its instinctive impulses, toning down its egotism so as to make life in
common possible? When savagery reigned, force was law and the fittest survived. But
civilization is not alone founded on the principles set forth by science. Rather it
depends on the suppression of savage instincts, the assertion of the equal value of
every human life, and the subjection of the individual to the universal.
If we look forward to a warless world, the thought of peace must be stressed.
Mankind must be made to think of peace instead of war. It is interesting to note, as
we read about India, that in five thousand years of that country's literature there is no
use of the word "liberty," Small wonder, then, that Great Britain, with a mere handful
ttf'-' ":.f WA' 'M ' -rf' ,X - ,,, ' -
of men, can govern three hundred million Asiatics! One can not help thinking of the
contrast between this condition and the state of affairs in Britain's American colonies
during the eighteenth century. To attain an end, we must think, talk and write about
it. Observe Germany in the period just preceding the World War. Those Prussian war
leaders recognized the impelling power of an ideal. They so firmly fixed the idea of
superiority in the German mind, that Germany rushed into the World War, confident
of her ability to overwhelm the world by sheer force. She came dangerously, uncom-
fortably near it. Instill an ideal in the mind of a generation and its immediate
accomplishment is insured. One nation, by such a process, very nearly upset the whole
existing order of things. Nothing is impossible with a concerted international effort.
However, the great challenge to lovers of peace is to produce a substitute for
war's disciplinary function. War develops courage. Some say it is human nature's best
protection against its weaker and more cowardly self. But is there not a higher
courage? Physical bravery we share with the lower animals, but moral courage belongs
to man alone. It is the power to decide on a course of action and follow it resolutely
to the end, despite adverse criticism, despite our own personal desires. The battlefield
may require physical courage, but everyday life demands courage of a still higher
order, "courage to do the right as God gives us to see the right."
It is said, then, that war, offering as it does a protection against the weakness
and cowardice of humanity, is indispensable. But is not war between man and man
useless, when we 'are called to those vastly more desperate struggles between man and
those natural forces which are destructive? The war against famine and flood and
pestilence can well enlist a standing army the size of that we sent to France a few
years ago, and even more resources of hardihood, skill, and daring. Such a conquest
brings life and happiness to humanity instead of anguish and despair. It is a nobler
war, more worthy of the efforts of mankind.
Steadily, a step at a time, we are moving toward international peace. Mankind is
listening to a new note. It is the note of mu.tuU,l HHlI6"7'SlLllJlfI'l'llg. The recent Kellogg
pact, renouncing war as an instrument of national policy in settling international
disputes, gives promise of peaceful adjustments of international difficulties. It is
another page in the superb record of America in her ambition to lead the world to
Peace is a world problem. It concerns every nation and every people. But funda-
mentally it is a personal as well as a national problem.
Intelligence, education, and sympathetic understanding will banish the spirit of
war and develop the spirit of peace. Let us individually and socially inculcate the ideals
of good will, and be apostles of universal peace. Its accomplishment will require effort
and demand sacrifice, but it is worth the cost. The principle of peace is vital to a
growing civilization. The cause of peace is just and calls to its defense
"Strong men, who gladly give their strength and hours,
Who sacrifice themselves and all their powers."

No event around the school excites more interest or brings forth more comment
than the annual popularity contest. That much is true in any school. But the contest
at Ada High has several unique features that make it still more outstanding. In the
first place it is never announced ahead of time. That prevents politics from taking a
part. Every individual votes exactly as he for shel thinks. No one is influenced by
the opinion of anyone else. In this way the real choices of the school are picked.
And another thing-this is the first time the results of the 1929 contest have been
presented to the public. They are always reserved for publication in the "Purple and
Gold." We herewith present them and we know that you will not be disappointed,
for the will of the school has been done and we have faithfully tabulated the votes.
There are some interesting facts in connection with the contest which we feel
that you should know. Cliff Harding was far ahead in the race for the biggest bluffer,
when Shively started piling up votes and emerged victorious after a thrilling race.
There were 49 nominees for the most noted antique. Strange to say, nobody nominated
the school building! B1'own and McAlpin polled 139 votes for the most devoted couple,
the biggest vote since George McElroy ran for the biggest bluffer several years ago.

A total of 34716.56 was cleared at the school fair conducted by the P.-T. A. here
ni March 15 and 16, 1929. Total receipts were 95794.70 including a contribution of
34250.00 from Mrs. George Stambaugh. The fund will be used toward special equip-
ment for the new high school domestic science department.
In attendance, enthusiasm, and quality of exhibits and entertainment, the fair
was the most successful event of its kind ever conducted here. Displays and programs
evidenced the high character of the work being done in the public schools of the town
The fair was planned and operated by the Executive and Finance Committee of
P. T. A., teachers of the Rural, Grade, and High Schools, Superintendent Crawford, and
Janitor Ernest Routson.
The general work of all the pupils was on display in the various rooms in the
building, and a home-made candy sale supervised by the teachers and parents of the
Several added attractions were sponsored by the various grades. The first grade
contributed a toy orchestra on both afternoons, directed by Miss Bowers, Mrs. Aleen
K. Mowen, and Miss Wehe. The second and third grades had a poster display, the
second prize being won by Travers Baker. Mrs. Gray, Miss Peterson, and Miss Kelly
were in charge. The first prize in the third and fourth grade poster display was won
by Othal Orr. A style show was given at stated times both afternoons and evenings
by the pupils. This grade received the special prize for having the largest visitation
during the fair. Miss Eley, Mrs. Tallman, and Miss Reese were in charge. The fifth
grade sponsored a miscellaneous program and a display project of pupils both after-
noons, directed by Mrs. Cummins, Mrs. Dorsey, and Miss Hutchinson. Mrs. Irey and
Miss Norris were in charge of the sixth grade exhibit which consisted of pets, project
work and hand made articles. The seventh grade under the supervision of Miss Beam
and Mr. McCleary contributed much amusement with their kitchen orchestra. The
first prize in poster work was won by Robert Burnett. A niinstrel show was the chief
attraction in the eighth grade both evenings, second prize in posters won by Elizabeth
McBride. Mrs. Hawk and Mr. Motter directed the production.
A large part of the High School exhibit consisted of project work by all classes.
Exhibits were sponsored by departments of languages, science, history, home economics,
mathematics, English, and agriculture. Special attractions were the fortune telling
booth, sale of High School song and science newspaper, and two plays given by the
public speaking class under the supervision of Miss Jeannette Duncan.

The Value of Better English
In these ultra-progressive times young people often get the idea that to speak
in pure English is either "old fogy" or "highbrow." Our high school students indulge
in slang and loose speech and even some of the old folks who carried Harvey's
Grammar under their arm all their school days have fallen into that derogatory habit-
they would not have any one believe they were behind the times. But while youth
speeds merrily away from cultured and refined language followed by a few envious
and babbling elders, the quiet men and women who love their mother tongue too well
to abuse it are managing our government, running our business and controlling our
A brilliant young man, high up in a large New York firm, was heard by the
president of his company to end a telephone conversation with-"And How!" The
employee resigned his position immediately-upon request.
The other common form of poor English, sometimes even worse than slang, is the
use of faulty grammar. One of the worst of bores is the person who through change in
circumstances finds it expedient to speak in a manner befitting the elegance of her
limousine. She imagines that the only thing necessary to polite speech is to speak
loftily, attempt any form that doesn't seem common and never to use a little word
when a big one is in reach. As a result she makes one absurd blunder after another
and is readily recognized for what she is by those who really know. Fine speech is
not acquired over night.
The majority of high school students can be said to have one or both of these
faults. Most of us use slang and many make plain grammatical errors. A great
number think English of secondary importance, some even take aversion to it. When
a teacher exercises her knowledge by using subjunctive mood a poorly suppressed
titter runs through the room. Boys are likely to think English a study for girls and
apply their masculine minds to mathematics and the sciences. They do not see that
English is becoming more practical every day-more essential to business. Engineers
of the future cannot hope to rise high with nothing but technical knowledge. A salesman
who presents his goods, however meritorious they may be, in faulty speech, is lost.
People will not put their faith in a doctor who makes mistakes in conversation-he
might in something else too, nor will they employ a lawyer who argues a case in
slang for there might be a college professor or two on the jury and all would be
lost. They will not read a newspaper that presents its views in a slipshod and ungram-
The world is demanding better educated men. "The best trained man gets the
job." Instruction in the English language should be no small part of that training.
A man may be an excellent accountant yet does he know how to ask for a position?
English is training in securing the placeg it gains an employer's respect after the
place is obtained.
The most important way of learning to speak with clearness and meaning is to
completely master English grammar. Other things can help-reading widens our
vocabulary and gives us better means of expressing our thoughtsg conversation with
people of intellect may improve our use of wordsg composition may serve to polish
cur speech, but the basis of clear simple discourse is a knowledge of the underlying
principles. Without this knowledge we could never be sure of ourselves. Like the players
in a ball game we must know the rules. EUGENE HEMPHILL.

The Parent-Teachers' Association is a necessary organization wherever thc
education of children is being carried forward. The great aim of the association is to
see the children reach success, that is, to get the best out of life that there is in it
and to leave the world better for having passed this way. 'We are putting forth every
effort to help the pupils prepare for citizenship and equip themselves to meet the
personal challenges of the years ahead, to make them understand it is not the battleship
but the school house which is to become our greatest means of national defense. It is
in the first years of l'fe and in the influence of the home, that forces are set in motion
which count for the most in the making or marring of the individual's character and
career, and it is the teacher and parent who are responsible for the training and the
moulding of the child, until it has reached the age of self-discovery and self-realization.
Through this organization the parent becomes acquainted with the educational
process applied to the child and a sympathetic interest is elicited.
Through the vision and tireless efforts of our president, Mrs. Moore, the pro-
gram of the organization has constantly widened and strengthened. The other officers
who have been striving to make the organization an asset to the school are: Vice
President, Mrs. J. A. Needy, Secretary, Mrs. C. R. Pease, and Treasurer, Mrs. Charles
Hawk, and the Financial Committee: Mrs Arthur Brewer, Mrs. J. L. Ferrall, Mrs.

Our goal for this year was a thousand dollars to equip the domestic science room
in our new school building A school fair materialized from our plans whose receipts
with the dinner of the west section met our call with gratifying results.
The high school and grade orchestras under the direction of our most faithful and
efficient leader, Mr. Routson, have been financed by this organization. Thus to fulfill
the obligation we owe to the coming generation, shall we once more knit up our sinews
and renew our vows of fidelity to education.

She was good looking and had a fine shape. They told me she never smoked, and
in times of need she was just a good pal. But I liked her. They told me she was fast, and
she was. She was not painted in a vulgar way, just a bit of red here and there to give
her a sparkling appearance. She was easy on your pocketbook. When you took her out
you were sure of a good old time.
But I traded her in and bought a Packard.
