Those who have been editors of THE SICKLE from
HII the annual year-book ofthe
Adrian High School, has with this issue reached
its seventeenth edition. The idea of publishing a
High School Annual was first conceived by
Stratton A. Brooks who was principal here in l897.
The purpose of publishing the book was -- and still is --
to keep a record of the principal events of the year as a
memento of the future. It is at the present time, and has
always been, managed and edited entirely by a board
of editors selected by the faculty from the Senior Class.
the year of its origin are as follows:

The Sickles that have been produced by the various
classes have passed from one stage of excellence to
another until last year when we think the height of
perfection was reached. This year, feeling that THE
SICKLE has just about reached the limit of its expan-
sion for a school the size of Adrian High School, we
have not endeavored to make any improvements upon
it. Yet we have tried to keep up its high standard and
at the same time publish it at less cost. If we have
accomplished this in any small measure we are grateful.
And now we give it over into your hands, kind reader,
and if while you peruse its pages it brings you a little
closer to the High School and High School life, its
purpose will have been accomplished.

- HIS is Volume XVII of the annual SENIOR SICKLE of the Adrian
High School. Finally it is finished. The last proofs have been
read. The last copy has been set up, and now it is in your hands,
kind friends. VVe fully realize that it is not perfect. Nothing perfect is
ever attained, if the ideal that one reaches after is high enough. We could
very easily make excuses for its defects and likewise praise its commendable
features. But it is not necessary, and furthermore it would do no good.
The one who has the task of editing such an annual as this will neces-
sarily meet with many diliiculties and have many obstacles to overcome.
In securing the information he desires to make his book interesting and
worth while, he is bound frequently to have his motives misinterpreted.
But, as we said before, these things are inevitable, and it is the editor's duty
to succeed in spite of them. How well we have succeeded, kind reader, is
for you to judge, but in making your decision, bear in mind the following
facts: In a school the size of Adrian High School, if the editor is a live
wire, he must necessarily give a considerable amount of his time to some of
the other numerous activities of the school. Then his daily recitations,
which, after all, should be given the major part of any students time, must
not be neglected. So one can clearly see that no editor of a High School
annual can give his undivided attention to the workg in fact, it must occupy
a second place in his mind and in his time.
There is another thing that we attempted to do in editing this annual,
which it is well nigh impossible to accomplish. Vtfe have endeavored to
publish it at a less cost and yet not materially lessen its value or in any way
reduce the quality of the book. We believe that weihave succeeded in
doing this in a small measure, not through our own efforts entirely. but with
the aid given us by Mr. Gallup, our principal, and the printer, publisher and
binder of the book. VVe take this opportunity to thank them for their advice
and to express our appreciation to all those who aided us in any way.
RECENTLY a professor in one of our leading universities said that if
something wasn't done in the immediate future to stop the growth of the
pernicious evil, cigarette smoking, among the boys and young men of today,
that in the next two generations American manhood would no longer stand
at the head of the world. One who has given the matter little thought can-
not realize the vast hold tobacco has upon the youth of today. It is an ap-
palling fact, but nevertheless true, that in nearly every one of the leading
high schools of the state fully fifty per cent of the students use tobacco in
some form. And the form that is most prevalent is cigarette smoking.
Of course, the reason that cigarettes are used among the boys more
than any other form of tobacco is that there is less nicotine taken directly
into the body in smoking them than in smoking anything else. But every-
one knows that is nothing in favor of cigarettes, as it is due to this very fact
that such a large number are used by the boys. It is not my purpose to treat
of the physiological evils of cigarette smoking. Volumes by more competent
persons have already been written upon that subject, and any person today
who stands up and claims that cigarette smoking is unharmful is casting a
very serious refiection upon his own intelligence.
The big problem today is how to remedy the evil. Much has already
been written upon this subject also, and many ways and means of checking
the evil have been expounded by different reformers. All of these, after
having been tried, have met with more or less indifferent success. It has
been my pleasure while in the local high school to go through two or three
anti-cigarette campaigns, and it is my honest opinion at the present time,
based upon what I have seen and heard while being closely associated with
my schoolmates, that no permanent result nor permanent good has been
accomplished by those campaigns. There -is no use in trying to cure any
disease or remedy any evil until you first remove the thing that causes that
disease or evil.
It is generally admitted and likewise deplored that in the hurry and
scurry of the twentieth century life the home is being neglected. Time is
at a premium, and father and mother do not have any of it to waste. After
the boy has partially grown up and reached the age of fourteen or fifteen,
where he is out of the nurse's care, he receives all too little attention from
his parents. He comes home from school in the afternoon and finds the
house deserted. Father is at the office working, and mother is either doing
the same thing or paying a society call to some neighbor. XVhat does the
healthy, normal boy do, who loves friends and companions? VVhy, he goes
down town. the most natural thing in the world. Here he meets some of
his friends and quite naturally, in looking around the city, they drop into
some of the open smoke-houses. He sees other boys of his own age and
men smoking, and in a desire to be like the rest, and to be a man, he smokes
his first cigarette. By steps like these the habit is generally formed. The
only way to permanently check the evil is to keep the boys that do not now
use tobacco from acquiring the habit. One might just as well try to twist
a rope of sand, or to make. water run up hill, as to attempt to kill out cigar-
ette smoking by imposing fines, penalties, or restrictions upon those that are
addicted to the habit., Such things only tend to make the boys sneaky and
to encourage smoking under cover.
The problem that we have got to solve, if we want to stop the spread
of smoking and ultimately kill it out, is the problem of recreation. VVhat
are we going to provide for the boy to do from the time he leaves school
in the afternoon until he re-enters it again in the morning? The twentieth
century home has failed conclusively to find something for the boy to do.
It now falls upon the public to supply the missing link, and the school is
the unit that must do it.
It is the height of folly to argue that the boy does not need any recre-
ation, and that we are already giving too much attention to it. The facts of
the case are that we have given it no consideration, and what recreations
the boys have found they have found for themselves, with the result that
we now have too much of the trivial, inconsiderate, and the demoralizing
side of recreation.
The school, as a social center. which is being agitated by the broad-
minded and best informed educators of today. will without a doubt in time
help to solve the problem. Give the teacher the opportunity to be associated
with the boys, not only in the artificial atmosphere of the classroom, but
also when the boys are not under such close restraint and are enjoying
themselves, and then they will be able to do something in the way of moral
education. In connection with the gymnasium, let us have the play ground
for the younger pupils. For the young men, let us have the pool and bil-
liard tables and the bowling alleys, where they can mix and have a good
social time and still be surrounded with all that is good and inspiring. ' Give
the boys and girls the opportunity of having their social clubs, of holding
their parties and dances, of having their amateur theatricals and stereopticon
lectures, and you will soon find a higher set of ideals growing among the
students, due to the fact of a closer association and understanding of their
Perhaps you think that is far-fetched and that cigarette smoking has
no connection with recreation, but you take any ten boys who use cigarettes,
ask them how they started, and they will tell you, if they are honest, that
some afternoon or evening, when they didn't have anything to do, they idly
strayed into some smoke-house and there smoked their first cigaretteg or,
that they began when in company with some older boys, perhaps in school.
Reformers can talk, preachers can preach, and teachers can make rules,
but the cigarette evil will spread until someone destroys the conditions that
promote its growth. What we all need to do is to quit preaching and quarrel-
ing about the evils of cigarettes and to get to studying in earnest on how to
check its growth. Then we will be able to make some progress against it.

Sarah A. Best
Miss Sarah Best is a native of North Dakota. She re-
eeived her early education in the sehools at Fargo, graduating
from the High School there. Later she entered the Univer-
sity of Minnesota from which institution she graduated with
the degree of A. B. Besides this she has done summer sehool
work at the State Agrieulture College of North Dakota and
also Harvard University. Miss Best began her work teaeh-
ing school in Casseltton, North Dakota, where she remained
two years, eoming here in 1908. During the five years she
has made many friends, both in sehool and outside of sehool.
IP her studies in Teaehers' College at. Columbia l'niversity,
New York, and our best, wishes go with her.
Arthur F. Baker
The students and faeulty of the Adrian High Sehool had
the good fortune to weleome Arthur F. Baker, Physieal
Direetor of our High School. and the misfortune to lose him
from that position all in one year. Coaeh Baker, previous to
eonling here, had taught gymnastics in Oberlin College for
two years, from whieh institution he graduated in H112
with the degree of A. B. He also holds a Physieal Training
diploma from Lake Geneva Chautauqua. He leaves Adrian
to take up his work in the broader field the Young Men's
Christian Assoeiation offers him, and will be loeated next
nesota. Vl'e wish hiin sueeess in his new work.
Miss Luella VVright is :1 native of Miehigan and a gi it
uate of lonia High Sehool, She spent three years, studying
nutsie at a private sehool i11 Chic-ago, and began her work as a

Pleasant. She eatne here last fall, and during the one year
she has been with us she has done mueh for the Nlusie Depart-
nteut of the eity sehools. The best wishes of the whole
student body and faeulty go with Miss Wright wherever she

This is Lorenzo Guarr-li y Rios, the first foreign-born
student who ever graduated from old Adrian High. And
the elass of 1913 are very glad to have hints among their
number. He onee deserted us to attend sehool in another eity, but after a few months'
absenee, some attraetion drew him baek. He is noted for his exeellent manners and
polite bearing. While he is :1 loyal son of his native land he says Alllf'l'lf':lll eustoms
are the better. We wonder why?

Gentle reader, donlt be misled by the above quotation,
as Claire wasn't a half bad fellow and his bark was lIll1Ch worse than his bite. We
know that he had all kinds of ability, but the trouble was he didn't direct it in the
right line. lieniember this in the future, Claire, while it's all right to be indepen-
dent, it never pays to be antagonistic.

Lillian Pearl Harrington

This quiet little maid has been with us all through
school, although she has been so retiring that she has not
been rnueh heard of. Her scholarship record shows that she
stood among the first tive in the class. But listen, Lillian,
what good will your boundless book-learning do you if you
keep it all to yourself? Don't be afraid to let others know how smart you are.

This girl has ever been a loyal member of the school and
while never intruding was always ready to do wliatever she
could for the class. She sang in the quartet one year and
did her part Very nicely. The best, wishes of the class go
with her in Whatever occupation she takes up.

Floyd, or f'Doc," as he is better known, certainly got
the spirit of the Senior Class, as hc is opposed to anything
in any way associated with work. He had to work this year,
though, as he took too much ease in the early part of his
school career md was obliged to carry extra studies to graduate. Rc-incmbci' this
in the futuit don t rest until the race is won.

llere you see one of the best musicians, both vocal and instrumental, of which the
c-lass ean boast, lVe have often listened with great pleasure to her solos. In her elass
work she also made a record to be proud of, and if you only turn over a few pages of this
book you may see her work. Delila, we would like to say something mean to eounterbalanee
these good things, but as we eanlt, we will offer you a little atlviee, R1-memb:-r that life
should not be all work and that fame is but a hollow bubble.

Ah, Kenneth, it is a relief to write something about you
after racking our brains so hard to find a little to say about
all those retiring girls. You a1'e a good fellow, Ken, but too
narrow, and what you need is some training so that you can
broaden out a little. We don't know for sure, but we think that perhaps you have taken
too much exercise when in school. You know that it, is impossible to grow fat if you
eontinue to walk so far. But this is eruel-so we will desist.

Now, Katzie, here-'s where you get another bawling out. And remember we aren't
doing it out of spite but- rather for your own good. Personally, we like you, but have
been told by the fair sex that you are unreliable. Now it behooves you to remember that
a promise to a girl should be kept as religiously as any other promise and also that it isn't
neeessary to go to Toledo to select your friends.

hearing her speak exeept onee or twiro in a very faint tone,

remember once when she did speak in a fll'Ill tone and that
was when she delivered her oration in the senior class. But
then, we all did unusual things that day.

HE Class of Nineteen Hundred and Thirteen greet you. For four
years we have been climbing the mountain of knowledge, a moun-
tain which many of you have climbed beforeg for four years we
have been working onward and upward toward the summit known as suc-
cess. Tonight as we have reached it, we discover that it is only the top
of a foothill, and we see higher mountains towering in the distance.
It seems to us that this event is one worthy of celebration, and we
have invited you to commemorate it with us. Your response to our invi-
tation shows that you are interested in us as a class and in the work which
Adrian High School is doing. XVe thank you for this interest and we feel
that we have something which will repay you for all the sympathy and
help which you have given us during these years.
We have needed many things in our ascent, things which would have
been impossible for us to have, had it not been for the sacrifices of our
parents. They have toiled and worked to give us the privilege and op-
portunity which we have been enjoying-the opportunity to climb up where
we can get a wider view of the world,
XN'e were inexperienced climbers and there were many rough and diffi-
cult places on the mountain. Many times have we despaired and in utter
discouragement have almost turned and gone back to the valley of ignor-
ance. But our guides have inspired us on. They have helped us over
difficult places, and, when we have taken mis-steps and fallen, they have
extended their hands to us and helped us up.
Our friends, too, who have already reached this summit, have anx-
iously watched us as we slowly but surely ascended the mountain. Those
also who have climbed with us and those who have not yet started the
ascent have at all times encouraged us. Now that we have reached the
top and look back on those who are coming behind us, we realize that it is
they who have made the journey so pleasant. So we wish to welcome all,
our parents, our teachers, our friends and under-classmen to our Class
The hardships we have met and the difhculties we have overcome you
will hear related in our history. The heights which we have reached in
oratory and music will be shown you by our orator and musicians. Our
prophet will lift the veil which now hides the future from our eyes, and
will disclose to us the paths which henceforth we shall tread. To all of
these I invite your kind attention, and once again, in the name of the
Class of Nineteen Hundred and Thirteen, I salute you and bid you wel-

GENERAL MANAGEIlS The Teachers
Acrons - - Class of 1913
N September, 1909, the company of 1913 assembled at the High
School building to enact the little drama of their school existence.
A i As yet they were but ambitious amateurs, and it was only by their
own determination to succeed, and the constant encouragement of the Gen-
eral Managers, that they were enabled to present the greatest drama ever
enacted on the old stage of Adrian High School.
This great masterpiece is composed of four distinct acts, each of which
has a definite purpose and marks a new development of thought. Each act
consists of many scenes, some light and comic, some sad and serious, some-
love scenes and some deadly combats, all accompanied by appropriate scenery.
It may be well to state here, for the benefit of those who are not acquainted
with the brilliancy of the company of 1913, that with the aid of the General
Managers they furnished their own light.
VVeeks before the presentation of the play, glaring posters announced
the great event, while the company awaited their first experience with great
At last the fateful day arrived. Behind the scenes some of the actors
were receiving their final instructions, while others at the peep-holes an-
nounced that the house was filling rapidly.
As the curtain arose the audience gazed upon the largest cast ever
known in the history of Adrian High School. The troupe was terribly
frightened, but. the thunderous applause which greeted them gave them
courage, and entering into the spirit of the thing, they played their parts
with surprising skill.
The next scene took place in XN'aldby's park. A bloody combat was
raging. Yells of "Tear 'em up, '13!" "Hold 'en1, '12!"i filled the air. It
could easily be seen that '13 was victorious. VVhen the contest ended, the
men of '13 went their respective ways, binding up their wounds, to return
in act two and administer a similar beating to the company of '14.
The next was a winter scene. The mother of silvery light and her fairy
servants about her'illumined the night. Bobs were seen coming, gliding
softly over the snow-covered roads, and disappearing in the distance.
Scarcely recognizable figures in their hoods and great coats were discern-
able, huddled together in the bottom of the sleigh. Some were squeezed
very tightly together, to be sure, but perhaps there wasn't room or it was
warmer that Way.
By the end of the Hrst act the fame of the company had become so great
and widespread that even distant Porto Rico sent a representative to join
The second act was composed of several small scenes. Some of the
actors were playing the clown, some were playing the part of traedy, but
nearly all were applying themselves diligently. They began to realize of what
vast importance this training was going to be to them when they became
actors on the great stage of life,
Between the second and third acts, Mr- Koehn. the stage manager for
the third act, came from behind the scenes and played some very touching
selections on the piano.
Again the curtain arose on a winter scene. similar to the one described
in Act One. Two sleighs filled with happy, laughing people were seen to
glide over the snow. But where were the boys? Alas! they were sadly
lacking. The girls seemed to be in difficulties after a little. The bobs had
tipped over and thrown them into the snow-banks at the side of the road.
Nothing daunted, they helped each other up, got back into the sleigh, and
continued on their journey.
The second scene of the third act took place in the old armory. The
hall was crowded with bright, expectant faces, who only waited the music
to enjoy themselves to their hearts' content. The orchestra, the hall decora-
tions of blue and gold, and the beautiful gowns of the women gave a festal
air to the scene. The crowd around the dining room door gave evidence
that they enjoyed the dainty refreshments. As the curtain fell on this scene
the audience was held spellbound by its magnificence.
At the beginning of the fourth act, the publicity department was given
a great boost by the addition of a Bragg to the company, and the costuming
department by the addition of a Taylor to their ranks.
The fourth act opened with a series of athletic contests, the first of
which were football games, played at the old Y. M. C. A. park. The team
representing the company of '13 acquitted themselves well in these games,
defeating both the '14 and '15 teams by overwhelming scores. Following
the football games came the basketball contests. The bleachers were filled
with a howling mob, encouraging their men and spurring them on to victory,
The outcome of these games were similar to those preceding them.
Perhaps it would be well to state here, for the benefit of those who have
not followed the drama closely, that the company of '13 never lost an athletic
contest. The General Managers say that in all their experience they have
never seen a cast that could boast of as great athletic prowess as this one.
At the close of the preceding scene, the sounds of hammering and drag-
ging of heavy furniture and scenery told the audience that something of
unusual interest was about to be shown.
As the curtain arose in the second scene of the last act, a miniature
stage upon the real one was revealed. A few of the best actors were here
presenting the crowning scene of the whole drama. It was Arnold Bennett's
f'Milestones," a satiric comedy in three acts, portraying the steady march
of progress and the continued battle of the old against the new. This play
was the most difficult ever undertaken by a class in Adrian High, and it
was the greatest success.
The last scene of this great masterpiece is being enacted before you
today. Only once again shall the entire troupe ever assemble in a body,
and that will be to receive their certificates of merit from the General
And now the curtain is rung down and the audience soon will have to
disperse. Perhaps they will never realize the vast amount of labor, the con-
stant rehearsals, and the hard study necessary to produce such a drama.
But the members of the company felt fully repaid for all the effort and
energy that they have put into it. With the training secured here they will
go forth stronger and better prepared for the great drama of Life in which
each must play his part. For truly, as Shakespeare has said, "All the world's
a stage, and all the men and women merely players."
Popular Spanish Amusements
OTHING strikes one so much in looking over the popular customs
and pleasures of Spain, as the antiquity of them all. Constantly
one finds himself back in anc1entt1mes. No one can tray el through
Spain without becoming aware that, however many kinds of recreation he
may find, there are two universal: dancing and the bull ring. In several
provinces the national game of "pelota," a kind of tennis played without
rackets, is still kept up. It is usually played in large cities. In Madrid it is
played in large courts and is watched by large crowds.
The working classes play at throwing the hammer. This is played
most in the Northern 'provinces where the workmen are vigorous and enjoy
the simple amusements. Shooting was a great favorite with the late king,
Alfonso XII, and is still very popular among the aristocracy. Horse
racing and cycling are common sports in Spain, and although they are not
.favorite recreations, yet very interesting races are held in the hippodromes.
Cock-fighting is played a great deal in most of the Spanish towns, but it
is looked down upon and is conducted by the lower classes of people. It
is a very brutal game but nevertheless very entertaining.
The guitar and dance are universal. There is a great deal written
about the Spanish national dances being shocking and indecent, but this is
not so. Une must pay a large sum in order to go to see one of these dances
which are very different from those seen on the Spanish stage in this
country nowadays. VVherever men and women of the lower classes are
seen together in Spain during their play time, there is a guitar with singing
and dancing. All are love songs of great grace and beauty. This song is
quite often heard:
"Era tau dichose autes
Ile our-ontrarte en mi 1-amino!
Y sin embargo no siento
ICI lmlwrte conocidof'
Translated this means
"I was so happy before
I had met you on my way!
And yet 'there is no regret
That I have learned to know you."
The part that the tamborine and castanet play in these dances must be
seen and heard to be understood. The people of Andalusia are very well
known for their skill in playing the castanets. These instruments are made
of ebony and generally decorated with ribbons of striking colors, which
play a great part in the dance.
Theatrical representations are very popular in Madrid. The Spanish
"Zarzuela" is the origin of all musical comedies. The theatres in Spain
are always full, always popular. The comedies are very short. The audi-
ence changes many times during the evening and a big crowd is coming
and going all the time. The performances last until two or three o'clock
in the morning.
Religious "f1estas" are also counted among the amusements of Spain.
The great fiesta of Corpus Christi, which takes place the first Thursday
after Trinity Sunday, is always very well attended- The "fiesta" of "Noche
Buenan QChristmas nightj is celebrated with great enthusiasm. Everybody
is well dressed. There, is no drunkeness in these "liestas," but there is
much gaiety, laughter and fluttering of fans. At the end there is always
a bull fight. Here we touch the very heart of Spain. Take away the bull
Hght, and Spain is no longer Spain. Bull fighting was founded by the
Moors of Spain. The purpose of the game is to show and display horse-
manship, use of the lance, courage, coolness and dexterity. The bull fighter
is the hero of the day. He risks his life all during the light. His coolness,
his courage and dexterity are tested as he tries to give the blow to the bull
so as to cause no suffering. People in this country believe that bull fighting
is a very cruel game, but let me tell you that it is not so. Probably the
reason they think that way is because they have seen bull fights that take
place in Mexico, but these fights in Mexico are very different from those
held in Spain. The bull Hghter, as I said before, is the hero of the dayg
he is very popular and he is always surrounded by "senoritas-" The bull
tighter as a rule is a very religious man, and the last thing he does before
entering the bull ring is to confess and spend some time in silent prayer.
His wife does not attend the fight, but she stays at home praying that he
may come out victorious. She is the one that makes the dresses for him, and
her main duty is to see that. her husband looks as attractive as possible.
It is said in Spain that a bull fighter without a wife is always a failure. The
wives of bull fighters have the reputation of being the most beautiful
women in Spain and they share just as much honor as the bull fighter,
if he is victorious.
These popular amusements of Spain express the character of the
Spanish people, showing not only their love for excitement and entertain-
ment, but their great admiration for strength, grace, coolness and dexterity.
CLAUDE L. BENNEIi
HE age we live in today is such a vastly commercial age that the
young man starting out in life is too much impressed with the
idea that if he wishes to be thought a success, he must become rich.
He is not to be blamed for holding such ideas of success, as without a doubt
they are the direct results of the teaching he has received in his home or in
his school or from his reading. The ideals that have been held up to him are
the ideals of rich meng the more wealthy, the more idealistic. until he has
lost sight of everything else in life and as a result we have a young man
going out into the world with a determination to allow nothing to swerve
him from the path of his desired object and whose every energy will be
spent in accumulating and counting his piles of gold. Now. if the young
man desirous of the best in life has paused a moment longer for deeper
thought. he would have seen that the men who won the greatest success in
life were not the ones who merely amassed great riches, and his aim in life
as a consequence would have. become fixed on something else more worthy.
Success must always be considered as a relative term. NVhat is counted
as success for one man may not be called success in another. It is foolish to
expect the poor boy with no advantages in the world to accomplish the same
things as the young man of great talents and unlimited possibilities. Yet
that does not prevent the commonplace boy from being a success. Perhaps
he will never have the pleasure to receive the plaudits of some fickle crowd
or it may never be his honor to make a name that will adorn the pages of
history with glory. I repeat that does not prevent him from being a suc-
cess. NVhat then you ask is success. And I reply that it is the bringing
out of the best that is in a person. How to bring out that best is the ques-
tion we must solve if we would make our lives what God would have them,
true, successful lives.
Can a man attain the highest life if he has before him as an ideal only
the "Gold that glistens"? Can a man's soul soar to the heights where it
can converse with God if his mind is always engrossed with the accumula-
tion of sordid wealth?
Let us look at the lives of some of the millionaires of today. Do we
honor Rockefeller or Morgan because they are the two richest men in the
world? Do you cover them with laurels and hold them up as types for
your children to copy? No, probably the most mercenary father in our land
would not do that because he knows that they did not get their money hon-
4'Not all printed. on account of space.
estly, but at the cost of the American people and from the sweat of other
Then, fathers and mothers, if you will not hold these n1en's lives as
ideal lives for your children to copy when they are the highest types of suc-
cess if Gold is to be the standard, why will you always associate money as
essential to success, when instructing your children? Why do you teachers,
principals and superintendents of school in lecturing to your students upon
the value of a higher education always harp upon the financial side of it?
VV hy do you always tell them how much it will mean in dollars and cents?
Can not you see that if success is always to be counted in dollars and cents
that such men as Grant, Lincoln and McKinley would have to be counted
as failures because they were men of only moderate means?
If instead of holding up wealth as the crown of success to the young man
of today. you would instill into his mind that his success in the world will
be measured by his good deeds to his fellowmen, you would have done more
to end the bitter financial strife of this twentieth Qehrury than the enact-
ment of any law can do. Why is it that there is so much graft in politics?
That so many men are betraying their trust and that it is getting to be said
that honesty is a lost virtue?
Am I going too far when I say that it is the result of the teaching they
have received in their homes and in their schools and in their workshops,
that it is the result of the ideals they have held up before them from child-
hood to maturity, and that the same conditions will remain with us and con-
tinually grow worse until these ideals are changed?
Parents in your homes, teachers in your schools. and ministers in your
pulpits, until you can inculcate in the minds of the American youth that
power and riches are not the first thing to seek after, there is no hope to
better either the financial nor the moral condition of this land.
If instead of holding as examples of successful lives, men who have
spent all their energy in an unceasing mad desire to get rich, if instead. I
say, you would point to men who have labored to better the conditions of
mankind, we should have better citizens, we should have men whose ideals
would be higher and whose lives would mean more to themselves and to the
The result of such ideals would have a lasting effect upon the character
of the boy. His mind would be filled with a determination to do something
for humanity, to help lighten the burdens of his brothers and sisters until
he should find for his ideal in lifeg

Hello, Adrian! All ready for news? Here's the weather :-fDewey
Teachout, head government observer, predicts fair weather for the com-
ing week. All right.
Vienna-James Sudborough arrived here today with a peculiar story
relative to his discovery, a new electrical property which was expected
to take the place of coal. Douglas Stirling, another American, is with
the scientist, and claims that half the discovery belongs to him. Both men,
although they have been living together for the past two years, profess
to be enemies, and it was only through the intercession of the American
ambassador here, Oscar Potts, that a scene was averted,
San Francisco-The suffragettes of America met here this week, and
the convention closed this afternoon with election of officers. All are
unmarried. They are as follows: Cynthia Lord, president, Doris Adair,
vice president, Margaret Marvin, secretary, Edna Kidman, treasurer. The
retiring president, Delilah Judd, gave the usual exaugural address.
London-Three Americans, giving their names as Maurice Maynard.
Clifford Barber and Howell Poucher, were arrested for alleged smug-
gling, shortly after the docking of the "Gigantic," late this afternoon.
All were in possession of large quantities of highly colored hosiery and
neckwear, which they failed to declare. Another American, supposed to be
Howard Jacklin, president of the large Palmyra silk mills, escaped the
vigilance of the customs officers. The other three were taken to the
American consul, Riley Dodge, who refused to recognize them as Ameri-
cans, and they were turned over to the Imperial police.
Milwaukee-The American Brewers' Association held its annual con-
vention here this week. Festivities were brought to a close tonight with a
banquet, at which election of officers occurred. Albert Mumford, formerly
of Adrian, was elected president.
Detroit-A new club, of rather unusual formation, was organized here
today, and is thought to be the first of its kind in this country. The name
adopted was the Ancient and Disrespected Fussers of America. Lawrence
Mead, a man well qualified to fill the position, was chosen first president.
As ladies are also eligible to the auxiliary, Miss Doris Mulligan was made
first vice president.
Madrid-Senor Lorenzo Guarch y de Rios, Spanish premier, today or-
dered the immediate execution of the mysterious person whose name has
been occupying so much newspaper space during the past week. The man,
claiming to be Claude L. Benner, came to Madrid last Thursday, and sub-
mitted to the Premier a cutting criticism of the new French grammar
which the Premier has just completed. Benner claims to be a schoolmate
of the Premiers, but the latter denies this, saying that he once knew of a
geometry teacher of that name. The Premier has also written a book
which the youth of Spain have found very instructive, on "The Art of
Making Love in America and in Spain, from Experience." Benner will be
shot at sunrise, if the guards can get him up that early.
New York-Two members of the "jolly Girls" company, which is play-
ing at the Empress, were the objects of a good deal of attention this
afternoon after the matinee, when they took a dare to ride through Broad-
way on the cow-catcher of one of the city surface cars. They were
stopped at the intersection of 6th avenue, and taken to the 19th precinct
station where they gave the names of "Dolly" Freneau and "Tootsie
Newman." It was later revealed that they were the Misses Ella McPhail
and Neva McGuftie, two of the principals of the company who were
looking for press notoriety.
Chicago-Arthur Sheffield, America's foremost sport writer has just
completed his selection for the all American championship team for the
Olympic of next year. Here is Mr. Sheliields selection: 100-yard dash,
Leslie Bragg, discus, Harold Corneliusg half mile, james Mullins, ham-
mer, Floyd Harris. For the other entries, there are so many candidates
that Mr. Sheffield does not wish to select those places at this time.
Hong Kong-The International Missionary Aid Society, from the dif-
ferent Asiatic and European districts met here today for the annual con-
clave. Harriet Wiggins and Blanche VVellhauser head the local recep-
tion committee. The reports of the different districts showed that Ken-
neth McFarland: and Eloise Alverson, working jointly, had cared for the
greatest number of cannibals during the past year,
Punjab, India-Lee Kenneth Judge and young wife, who was formerly
Miss Gladys Kuney, a personal friend of the English secretary here, Claire
Hall, narrowly escaped death yesterday morning about five miles from
this place. The two are on what Americans term, a "honeymoon," and
they refuse to take the usual number of servants. The district is espe-
cially dangerous at this time. as the animals are beginning to come

Detroit-Aaron Jennings, the new manager of the Gayety, promises
something new and sensational when his rejuvenated theatre opens next
season. He has secured the services of the three greatest vaudeville
stars living, Mable Crowe, Marion Seger, and Donna Briggs, for the
first 100 nights, This promises to be a big attraction, and although Mr-
jennings says he is pretty "Tuckered" by his labors, he will stay by this
Cleveland-The Imperial mixed quartette of England and America,
arrived here today to open a three weeks' engagement at the Temple.
Prof. Scott VVesterman said that while here he will feature the numbers

London-Lawrence Galloway and Coe Smith, the two curio hunters
who have been spending the past two years in Egypt, reached Cairo on
their home journey, according to dispatches received here today. Their
arrival in America is expected within six weeks.
Toledo-Emmett Howley was re-elected for the fourth time today
to the presidency of the Talkers' and Smilers' Club. Mr. Howley in-
tends to make Toledo his headquarters for the rest of his life, and said to-
day that he would be willing to die QDeyj here-
Lansing-The house of representatives convened at noon. Freda
Furman, of the 19th district, introduced a bill to prohibit men over 30
years of age from attending baseball games. Mary Bryant, chairman
of the finance committee, presented a number of bills for recommendation.
Bennie Hathaway, of the fifth district, appeared before the investigating
committee for the hearing of the charges preferred against him for
cruelty to the state chickens. Governor Leslie Taylor sent his annual
message to the state legislature today. It is said to have resembled a wild
west story more than anything else.
New York City-Miss Mary Mills, a popular young lady of the upper
set has set a fashion which is being followed by many of the younger
members of the "400." Miss Mills has changed her summer home at
Marlons on the Hudson into a children's farm, where hundreds of little
immigrants are sent every month to get their first idea of American
customs. Miss Mills takes personal charge of the youngsters and has
been very successful in her unusual plan.
Denver-The chirysanthemum growers of America are in session here
this week with beautiful specimens for exhibition. The largest and
most beautiful flowers are being shown by Russell Jacobs, of California.
Alexandria, Egypt-A story, unusual it its strangeness, was told
here upon the arrival of a group of missionaries from the interior yes-
terday. One of the holy men, Russell La Fraugh by name, told of
exciting experiences with cannibals. The entire civilizing party had
been surrounded and a Ere had already been started for a cannibal feast,
when Mr. La Fraugh began in his fine tenor voice, "Nearer, My God, to
Thee." The Cannibals. never hearing anything like that before, were in-
stantly subdued, and the party was saved at the expense of having to listen
to Mr. La Fraugh.
Madrid-Mabel King and Louwilla Lutz, the two American women
who came to this country two years ago with the hope of spreading the
suffrage question, left today for Berlin. It is unofhcially reported that
the two young women are drawn to that city by the news of the arrival
there of Iris Mann and Emma VVatson, prominent suffrage workers for
some time past in Italy and Switzerland.
Sidney, Australia-Harold Wilson accompanied by his wife, formerly
Miss Blanche Harris, left here today with his troupe of "Darktown Min-
strels" after a very successful season in this country. They sailed on
the steamer "Sidney," captained by Forrest Smith, a former schoolmate
of Mr. XVilson's.
Charleston-The large dry goods hrm of Hoag, Hopkins and Harring-
ton was sold today to the firm of Bryant, Bulson and Brainard. The
business will be conducted by the new firm along the same lines as before.
Ann Arbor-It was revealed at the University today that the
teachers have been the butt of a rather unusual joke for the past
term, when it was discovered that Mr. Straub of the medicine depart-
ment had a double, Straub gave his name as Carl and attended class
one day. A twin brother whom it was impossible to tell from the
other brother attended the following day. At meal time it was al-
ways noticed that when the majority of the boys were througheating,
Carl always went out for a drink, and returned shortly and began all
over. The imposition was revealed by one of the teachers who found
both the boys quarreling over which one was to go to the Junior prom next
week. It is not known what will be done with them.
VVashington, D. C.-A scene was created in the house today when one
of the anti-suffragettes, Miss Ruth Connely, declared in a heated speech,
that the suffragette members should be ashamed of holding their present
positions. It will be recalled that Miss Connely was almost unanimously
elected two years ago, but refused to accept the oliice. Helen Fowler re-
sponded to Miss Connely's berating in a fitting manner. Nina Cunning-
ham, sergeant-at-arms of the house, had a hard time preventing a riot.
Rena Furman, clerk of the house, was ordered by the Speaker not to
insert any of the occurences in the official record.
Chicago-A new hair dye, which is expected to revolutionize present
methods of changing the color of one's upper extremity, has just been
put on the market by Loyal Calkins, a man who has been working at
the scheme for some time past. The peculiar properties of the prep-
aration could not be learned, as Mr. Calkins refused to talk upon the

beaming with the warm glow of fun and frolic, and of com-
panionship g they are pleasures now fled, never to come again. There were
hours that seemed dark and dreary at the time, disheartening in their
disappointments, but they rendered our pleasures the brighter by
contrast. They have served their purpose and have faded away. We have
cemented the bonds of life-long friendship in these few swift years.
These have been the years of our greatest development. As we have
sown them, so shall we reap. Many of us sail forth from these sheltered
5llOI'CS directly upon the seas of life, and whatsoever we may accomplish,
whatsoever heights we may attain, yet ever and always shall we be chiefly
indebted to old Adrian High for the success which is ours.
As the brooklet is to the mighty river, so has been our life here to
that upon which we are entering. The deeper and fuller we have been
prepared, just so much greater our advantage and possibility of success-
It is through our instructors, ever patient and painstaking and kind, that
we have been equipped. Our debt to them is inexpressible. From them
we have learned that steady, persevering effort is the key-note of success.
And now we have made the goal for which we have striven and
have passed the milestone that marks the first epoch of our life. And
we find that the way but points to another and much greater.
As yet we have not entered the new. The gradual advance has
scarce been noticeable, and now that all is gone, the loss bursts upon us.
And like all things, their value is not fully realized until they are gone.
Our old associations will be broken, cast to the four winds of the earth.
These last few meetings we will ever cherish. And yet all of which we
seem to be a part will continue undisturbed at our departure just as
they have always done when others have gone whither we are now going.
So going forth, we bear with us the fragrant memories of all that was so
dear to us, ever to be recalled and relived with unwavering joy mingled
with sorrow at their loss. These have been the choicest moments of our
And now to all, farewell. We have run a good race. The course
is speed. We have for the last time, forever as students, passed through
the doors of dear old Adrian High. And now we must break the
thread of the golden moments spent there with a last farewell.

Junior Cliss History
One memorable day in September,
The Freshmen of nineteen and ten
Entered the halls of the High School,
Their future abode of learning.
They were greeted with cries, not of welcome,
But disdain and contempt and scorn,
Their banners hung low and but sadly,
And their faces were long and forlorn.
But, being thus unprotected,
They soon intrusted the class
To Byron Darnton as leader
And learned to hold high their heads.
So that when by the enemy challenged,
They valiantly conquered their foe,
And made those im-pertinent Sophomores
To experience misery and woe.
When they again were assembled,
After the hot summer weather,
Though their number was somewhat diminished
They still more than equaled their duties.
The Seniors looked down on them smiling,
And the Juniors with envy were green,
While the Freshmen shrank from them in terror
And the rush disappeared from the scene.
And although in their place were put contests,
So the Freshmen would have more chance.
They beat them so soundly and surely,
They thought they'd not try it again.
That year brought their long-wished-for sleighride
Which fell through the year before,
And they came back all tired and weary
A little beyond half-past four.
But when, in the third year of High School,
As Juniors they took their place
Nothing could equal their knowledge,
l'hey had never been nearly so wise.
They had always been stars in athletics
But this year they earned the name "crack.'
Not a team but could boast of its Juniors
Basket ball, football and track. -
Their men were enlisted in baseball,
And two showed their worth in debate,
And their girls, too, were basket ball players
The team was all juniors but one.
This class was a brave and staunch one,
And tho' sometimes it fought right fast,
It fought to the end of all its battles,
And played fair and square to the last.
Some classes are known for good manners,
And some for their beauty renowned,
But our class will be always remembered
For its pluckiness, stoutness and grit.
So all honor and laud to those classes
Which e'er in attractions are keen,
But yells, shouts, and loud acclamations,
To the class of nineteen and fourteen.

NVhen we were Freshmen green
That we were not great athletes,
Was plainly to be seen,
But our class was full of girls,

Our record has been changed:
And, our worthy classmates,
VVe've won a glorious name.
VVe took the Freshmen laurels,
In football and in trackg
In basket ball and baseball,
They could not win them back,
Our fair girls still are with us.
And they still help us toog
Without their spotless record,

And remember long this record

Freshman Class History
N A glorious September morning A H. S. was blessed with her
. hrst sight of our wondrous class. Of course, we were not green!
Oh, no, merely delightfully, irresistably fresh. judging from the
amount of applause when we first entered the gallery, every one was favf
orably impressed with our good looks. VVe soon found that this was to
be our usual elevated position in chapel and surely we were more than glad
to be able to look down on the mighty upper classmen for one day in the
week at least. Then, feeling in a particularly hilarious mood, the perform-
ance of clapping was again repeated just before the holiday vacation.
But we considered the season and accepted the rare Christmas treat joy-
Semester examinations greeted us after vacation and although a "few"
of our members came through the battle rather scarred, many were for-
tunate enough to survive the shock. And after diligent study Q FJ, we now
feel duly impressed with the fact that our class has the highest percentage
of "E" pupils in the school.
After the maimed were separated from the sound and hearty mem-
bers, we were ready for the class organization, which occurred shortly after
We had waited some time for this wondrously important event and
when the opportunity at last arrived, we met with an enthusiasm and loy-
alty that could scarcely be contained within the four walls of the Lyceum
room. Looking about for someone to guide our class safely through its
first year, we at once selected Ray Wenzel, our basket ball champion. as
our president. He has surely proven himself as competent in this position
as he has on the basket ball field. His classmates are more than proud
of him, also of the other officers, especially- since Mr. Gallup said that our
meetings were conducted in a more able manner than any previous Fresh-
man attempts. There had been a slight doubt in some of our minds as to
our class "making good," but this remark immediately cleared all doubts
Since then a general good time has always been enjoyed at our
meetings. This was especially true at a recent gathering, when, as a
motion for adjournment was made, one of our loyal boys stopped it by
saying, "Let's stay awhile. I'm having a good time." Certainly we could
not resist such an appeal.
In athletics, although our boys are small, they have unmistakably
shown that "quality, not quantity, counts." Naturally we have lost games,
but we have won them as well, especially those with the Juniors. Of
course, with the Sophomores it was not because we couldn't win, but merely
because we thought of their feelings. For how would a mighty Soph. feel
to be defeated by mere Freshmen? It would truly be too terrible!
Owing to the new regime, the Sophomores' annual source of amuse-
ment in following us on our class sleighride was not gratified. VVe were im-
mensely grieved by the fact that we were not able to have a ride out to
some country dance hall, let the upper classmen help themselves to eats
and dances, also to our means of conveyance, and have a good time in
general. But it was not lack of courage, merely the new regime which
prohibits country sleighrides, that prevented us. Then at our class party
we treated them with such courtesy that they soon tired of such unusual
.kindness and left us to enjoy ourselves.
Our party was a huge success in every detail, providing not only
an evening's entertainment for the upper classmen, but for ourselves as
well. Assuredly more for ourselves, considering that it was really much
pleasanter to be "down" than up-stairs looking down in this instance.
In deserting Miss Palmer, Miss Lovell, and the, dear old Freshman
gallery, we feel that we are leaving behind us a year of many good times
and happy experiences, but we will gladly surrender to the Freshies of next
year. VVe console ourselves with the fact that we have three more years
before us, which we hope to improve to the uttermost. VVe will start
about the delightful task of practising cold stares and wry faces until
September brings us into that responsible position of "Freshman Tormen-

BENJAMIN KN1sE1. Ro1.1.1N BURTON
FTER much deliberation and discussion these men were selected by
vw.: the Faculty from the Class of IQI4 to edit the eighteenth volume
of THE SENIOR SICKLE. We take this o ortunity to con ratu-
late them on being elected to this very high honor.
Mr. Wallace Harvey, who has been chosen Editor-in-Chief, is without
a doubt amply qualified to fill that very important position on the Board.
He has always been interested in the various literary activities of the
school, and his class-room work is of the very highest. He will without a
doubt make a very eflicient leader for the staff.
While Mr. Knisel and Mr. Burton are not as well known as some of
the members of their class, we believe that they have the characteristics
necessary for good Business Managers and that the financial end of THE
SICKLE will be safely cared for by these men.
We can only wish that the same success that we have had in our publi-
cation will follow them in theirsg and then we feel sure that with the aid
that Mr. Gallup is always ready to give and with the cooperation that they
will find at Mr. Finch's printing ollice, a book worthy of the Class of 1914
will be produced. Again we wish them success.
Big -Hearted Bill
N A LITTLE cabin, perched on the side of the mountain, lived
Big-Hearted Bill. The other shacks and cabins, which constituted
the mining camp of Red Dog Gulch, were clustered together in a
hollow further down the trail. It was a bleak November evening when a
woman crept from out of the shadows and staggered into the cabin, bear-
ing a heavy bundle. Soon she came from the cabin without her burden
and ran straight toward the cliff.
Bill was a natural home-maker and unfailing in his good humor.
He came cheerfully whistling down the trail. He shook the snow from
his coat as he stepped inside the cabin, and touched a match to the
kindlings in the fireplace. The flames shot upward and sent a red glow
through the darkness. Stepping backward, Bill's foot touched something
soft, and he glanced downward with a look of surprised interest.
"Hello, who's left a blanket roll for me ?,' he said, rolling the bundle
into the firelight to get a good look at it.
It was a soft, fuzzy bundle, and as it rolled, it suddenly began to
squirmg then sat upright. The red coverlet fell away and a pair of
round blue eyes looked wonderingly out from under a fringe of curls at
the astonished Bill.
"Where's mama F" asked the small voice.
4 "That's the question, young lady, where is she, likewise, who is she?"
replied Bill, trying to collect his senses.
The child disentangled herself from the coverlet with difficulty and tod-
dled across the room to Bill's side.
'Tm Virginia and I'm four years old," she said, as she looked up at
him trying to smile.
"That's interestin' information, but where did you come from? How
did you get here ?"
"Papa was cross. He ate my bread and milk and he struck my
mama. Then he went to sleep and mama wrapped me up and carried
Bill questioned little Virginia further, but all in vaing for she was too
young for any logical explanation.
"I'm sleepy, I want to go to bed," announced the little girl when Bill
was talking to her.
"All right, sir, you may have my bed and I'll sleep on the Hoof."
' As he was awkwardly preparing her for bed, he noticed a chain about
the little throat.
"It'S my locket, mama gave it to me, it opens," said Virginia proudly.
Bill opened the locket, and as he did so, he recognized the smiling
face of his old sweetheart.
"Elizabeth !" he gasped.
"Heres a paper, too, that mama pinned on my waist," said the child.
Bill took the yellow faded slip which the child handed him with
trembling hands and read,
Dear Elizabeth :- -
I leave for Red Dog Gulch tonight. Should you ever
need a true friend you will find one in me.
Bill stared at it for a moment, and then asked the child, "Can't you
tell me where she is? Did she bring you here? Where did she go?"
Bill could get very little satisfaction from her, so he finally gave up
in despair, and tucked her up in his bed. Then with a lantern, he went out
in the falling snow in eager search for the mother. Hours later he re-
turned and sat before the flickering flames, dreaming of his old sweet-
heart, Elizabeth, and his hasty note, which now lay in his hand, and of
the child wearing the locket, which he had given Elizabeth, and looking
at him with Elizabetlfs eyes.
The sun was peeking through the curtain when Virginia opened her
eyes and announced, "NVant to be dressed, and my curls brushed, and want
my bread and sugar."
"Your wants are middlin' numerous ain't they F" replied Bill, "VVell
you can't be blamed. It's born in your sex to want something different
every minutelu Q
At this opportune moment there was a knock at the door, and an
Indian squaw stepped into the room.
Little Virginia ran up to her, and said, "Pretty lady, dress Virginia."
At this Bill's anxious face cleared suddenly and after some bargaining and
urging. he persuaded the squaw to stay and care for the cabin and little
Virginia. There beneath the pines, the child played, filling the cabin home
and Bill's heart with love and sunshine.
41 as 4: if -if
Twelve years made little change in the settlement at Red Dog Gulch,
but a great change in Virginia. She was a tall, slim, graceful girl with
a sweet face and a pair of beautiful blue eyes. Bill had bought books
and a piano for Virginia, and the mine superintendents wife had super-
vised her education. But now Bill had planned to send her to a boarding
school, so that she might see what life outside a mining camp was like,
and also to get her away from Tom Whitney, a young engineer from the
East, who had fallen in love with her and was determined to marry her.
Virginia protested and even wept because, Bill held so firmly to his plans,
but she finally consented to go, with the understanding that she could
come back to the camp the next year if she didn't like it at school. So
Virginia, with many tears and backward looks, left the cabin for the
seminary at .Los Angeles. In every letter that she wrote Bill, she told him
how she was counting the days to get back home.
The long year ended at last, and they watched eagerly for the stage
which would bring Virginia home- They all expected a change in the
girl, but it was the same Virginia who flung herself into Bill's arms,
crying. "Oh, I'm so glad to be here!',
After Virginia had been home about a week, one noon she ran
down the path to meet Bill and to show him a telegram which she had
received, "Cannot live without you. Am coming at once," read Bill.
"VVell, Virginia, who is this Harold Sinclair who is dependin' on you
for his life?"
"He is a New Yorker, and he is very rich. His sister was at the
seminary and I met him at the parties. He asked me to marry him. He is
a splendid fellow, but I didn't want to marry him, because I liked some
one else better."
"That's Tom," thought Bill,
When Harold Sinclair arrived, Virginia became a puzzle to Billg
for she treated both Tom and Harold alike, and told them both, "It's no
use. I like some one else better."
As Bill stood bewildered, Virginia came a step nearer to him, and
Bill said, "Do you mean there is some one else?"
"Yes," replied the girl. B
He stepped up nearer to her, looking into the big blue eyes, hardly
daring to hope that he read them aright.
"Little girl, is it really true?"
Tom and Harold, coming up the trail a moment later, stopped sud-
denly at the sight of an unexpected tableau.
"So that was the reason," said Harold.
"Good for old Bill! He deserves her," said Tom bravely.
ACK Clayton was in love! He was sure of it this time, for he
,X had lain awake two whole hours thinking of Dolly Brant, and
fQfN5f"4,5Z2 . . .
'M' "l'N'N that was more than he had ever done for any girl. His mind
was made up! He would propose at the picnic the next day! He
had almost proposed last night, but Dolly had made fun of him. His
mind wavered a little bit, for he well knew that he had no easy task be-
fore him. Many young men were trying to win Dolly or her twin sister
The next day rose bright and clear. jack started on the way to
the picnic. He had gone after Dolly, because it was the sisters' habit to
go together with their brother Dick, a habit which often exasperated the
young men. The Brant girls could afford to be eccentric, for they were
the 'prettiest as well as the wealthiest girls in that part of Virginia.
jack finally reached the grove which was filled with merry groups
of people. He went hastily from group to group searching for Dolly.
Finally he saw her sitting all alone in a little shady nook by the river- He
knew her by her white dress and pink sash. He soon reached her side
and began the conversation by saying, "Good aftahnoon, Miss Brant."
He noticed she acted very shyly. Then, without further notice, he plunged
headlong into a proposal. All the passion he had felt those two hours
was related in an outburst of oratory. He concluded his speech by
saying, "Dolly, deah, won't you marry me ?" Then the girl turned com-
pletely round and said, as best she could for laughter, 'Tm Polly, Dolly's
He was non-plused. He saw his mistake, for Polly had a mole on one
cheek while Dolly did not. Then he became angry for Polly's telltale face
showed that it had all been planned out. She had combed her hair like
Dolly and had dressed like her. Now the twins never dressed alike!
Righteous indignation shone in his eyes: he would make Dolly pay for
that! He saw her across a field at the edge of another grove. He left
Polly abruptly and went as far as the fence of the held.
Suddenly he heard Dolly scream, saw her start and run a few
steps in each direction, then turn and run swiftly towards him- He
saw the trouble. A mad dog was running round and round in the field.
He saw that Dolly would soon reach the fence, and then he noticed
something that Dolly had not noticed in her excitement. The dog was
not mad, but was trying to get from off its tail a tin can that some mis-
chievous boys had tied on. Quick as a flash Jack dropped down to the
Do-lly had reached the fence when suddenly Jack sprang up in
front of her. "jack, let me ov'ah, there's a mad dog ov'ah there," she
But Jack said boldly, "You can't get ov'ah till you promise to marry
"I won't," she said.
"Stay there then," said Jack.
With a hasty backward glance she saw the dog coming. "I w-w-
will, Jack." Jack helped her over the fence!
:of ik wk 4: in
It was the evening of their first anniversary- Dolly and Jack
were sitting in the twilight on the verandah. Suddenly Dolly said,
"This has been a happy yea'h Jack, do you know what you've got to
thank for 't?"
"VVhy no, unless 'twas the dog."
"No, said Dolly, it's my northern education, which I received when
I stayed with Auntie Belle in Adrian. Wliile I was trying to decide
which way would be the nearest place to run to, an old Geometry
theorem Hashed into my head- It was, 'The perpendicular is the short-
est straight line that can be drawn from a point to a straight line.' As
the fence was the line, I ran straight to you. After I found out that
the dog wasn't mad, I was angry and would not have married you, but
an old adage-the northeners are great for making us learn quotations
and adages-came to my mind, which was, 'All's fair in love and war.'
so I married you. And I confess I liked the bold way in which you pro-
posed, I didn't think you had it in you."
"I didn't,' said Jack, "I was angry. But may heaven bless your
northern education, I'll nevah say again it wasn't practical."
Y 4 young and generally high-spirited Business Manager seemed to be
I - L in rather low spirits. He was nervously working over some sort of
books. He would glance at the clock and jerk out something about somebody
never doing anything right. At last just as the clock was striking six,
a smile crept over his face and he fixed something on the books. He
closed the books. took his coat and hat, and went out of the office. While
putting on his coat, he burst out laughing and said, 'tI'll kid Goodheart about
that bone-head. He thinks that his books are always without mistakes."
"NVere you talking to me, Mr, Campbell?" he heard a voice call from
the back of the room.
"No Tommie," answered Campbell, "I was just laughing at a mistake
that he made. You know he thinks he is there on figures. Say."
What, sir?" said Tommy approaching.
Where's Goodheart ?"
Gone home, I think, sir."
Gone l'10111Cl What time did he go? Wasn't sick, was he?"
"Oh, he went about two o'clock, sir. I don't know what he went for,
but he seemed to have something on his mind, something amusing, sir."
"Oh," said Campbell soberly. "W'ell, Tommie. I've got to go now. I
have an engagement at 6:30, so you and Hartwell will have to close up,
that is, if the boss does not come back." '
"Yes, I understand the nature of the engagement, sir. Vtfhen is the-
ugh-I mean when is Miss Dawson going to cha-Oh shucks! when is the
thing coming off?"
"Now. Tommie, you must not try to fuss me- Good night."
"Good night, sir."
The Goodheart and Langdorf establishment, for that is where the con-
versation had taken place, was a grocery house, situated in a town of
eight or nine thousand, a few miles south of Cleveland. Goodheart and
Langdon were the proprietors, that is, Goodheart was: for Langdon had
died several months before this.
Goodheart was a short, chunky fellow of about twenty-eight years.
He was unmarried and apparently the chances were very poor at present.
His eyes were dark blue and had a jolly look, which never changed even
when he was joked about the bald spot on his head.
Harvey Campbell had been the life of the hrm since the death of
Langdon. Ile was expecting to be taken in as partner in a short time.
He was a tall, handsome young fellow with a lively disposition, and was
about four years younger than Goodheart, and more active in the business.
T was the last day in March, and that day was nearly over. The
The next morning Campbell was bending over the desk when Good-
heart came in. The newcomer seemed rather queer, but greeted Camp-
bell in the same manner as usual and went to his work. When the post-
man threw a bunch of mail in the office, Tommie sorted it, and Good-
heart slipped out of the office,
"Here is a letter for you, sir-"
"For mef' returned Mr, Campbell, "thanks, ho, and it looks like a--."
In his eager manner he almost stood up. But as he read, he fell back,
pale and trembling in the chair. "Why, why, is it pos- no, it can't be
possiblefl and again he read the letter.
"Mr, and Mrs. Dawson
wish to announce the engagement of their daughter,
Miss Adelaide Dawson
Mr. Christopher Goodheartf,
"Where's Goodheart ?" Goodheart came in the door.
"Say Goodheart, tell me what this meansf,
Goodheart took it. read it and then handed it back, "Oh, it means
what it says. You don't seem to be happy. Wlhy don't you congratulate
me? Don't you think I'm in luck ?"
"ln luck !-ah-yes, and she only told me last night that she-" He
never finished for Goodheart could hold in no longer, and burst out
laughing as he pulled down the March calendar. Campbell groaned as he
saw April 1 loom up in big red letters.
"Guess I had you going then, eh ?" laughed Goodheart.
"Going, eh, yes." He said no more, but his face was lighted up with
a sort of a queer smile.
Almost two years had passed. Business was prospering under the
management of Campbell. Campbell never married, neither had he entered
into partnership. Goodheart had been married for nearly a year to a girl
not known in the town. Mrs. Goodheart was going to Buffalo the next
day to visit her parents. Campbell. who had to go to New York on busi-
ness, was going with her, according to the arrangement of Goodheart, who
was glad that some one could look after his wife- Before starting,
Campbell did something in the office, but Goodheart thought nothing of
it, At Cleveland, Campbell posted a letter, explaining to Mrs. Goodheart
that he had forgotten to post it at the office. They boarded their steamer
and were sitting apart from the crowd, when Campbell noticed a detective
who had done work for the firm, and knew that he was watching them.
He knew that the fellow would leave nothing untold to Goodheart. On
this observation, Campbell pretended to act nervous and to be intensely in-
terested in the lady, all the time making gestures that the detective could
readily note. 1
The next day Goodheart could not work. His thoughts were too much
disturbed over the absence of his wife. While thinking thus he was in-
terrupted by Tommy.
"Here is a telegram for you, Mr. Goodheartf'
"Thanks," and he read as follows:
"Your wife and Business Manager have eloped, so I pick up. They
talk-she dreamy and he very nervous. Will follow. Come to Buffalo at
once. Detective Jones."
"I2loped-eloped-It can't be-no-no-she would'nt do it-Oh!-No
m-Jones must be mistaken. Hels talked her into it. He's to blame. Yes-
Yes-Jones must be mistaken. VVhat's that ?"
"A letter, post marked Cleveland," said Tommy as he dropped a letter
on the desk in front of Goodheart.
"Get out," roared Goodheart savagely and Tom thought he was crazy.
Goodheart was raving. The letter was from Campbell. He knew his
writing. He tore open the letter and read:
"My dear Goodheart:
"I regret to tell you-er-ha and I think before you are through
reading this letter you will regret that it is so. You once played a joke on
me- A joke that cost me the dearest girl I know. I have been two years
getting even, But ho! I have clone it. It was hard work, but I made her
do it. She, your wife'-we-I will be married soon. I was too slick for
you. I courted her when you were asleep. Ho! Ho! Our plans have
worked. VVe will live in Canada. Ha! Never mind, old boy, you will get
over it just as I got over my love.. Ha! Stick to it-my utmost regards.
"Hoping your business prospers, I remain, as ever,
"The villian! And he has been courting my wife for-Oh-for how
VVhile he was raving he heard a knock-"Come in," he cried, and
there stood jones with countenance of a victor and several others.
"jones, where is he, the villian? What shall I do with him? Where is
my wife? Oh! oh! tell me, tell me-Oh! oh! tell me."
jones folded his arms and strutted into the room. "They are here.
I captured them and brought them back."
"What in creation is the matter ?" asked Mrs. Goodheart. "Are you
crazy or what-and you ?" she pointed straight at Jones, "whom did you
capture, and what do you want ?" Jones said nothing.
"Hal Ha !" roared Campbell as he came forward holding a poster with
the letters, April 1.
Goodheart's anger turned to a silly 'grin. "My goodneSs!" said Mrs.
Goodheart, "whats all this ?" and Goodheart's grin was sillier than ever.
At last Campbell said, "Let me introduce you to my wife, Mrs. Daw-
At this Goodheart was very much surprised. Then he laughed and
wished them joy and' also told them the reason why he wasn't rational.
"Campbell," he said, "tomorrow we'll join partners. But where is Jones P"
No one knew but Tommy. "Oh, he went crawling out on his hands and
knees. He looked sick."

- FTER the presentation of some plays by the Athenian girls in the
. HT.: fall, the desire to revive the Dramatic Club became quite prevalent
among the High School students. A meeting of those interested
in such a society was held, and they decided to start an organization. A
constitution was drafted, and officers were elected. The meetings proved
interesting, and tl1e members seemed enthusiastic about the new society.
Three plays were presented, besides other programs along dramatic lines.
The first play presented was a scene from "The Taming of the Shrew."
The parts were well chosen, and the meeting was a success, assuring all
who were interested in the work that the Dramatic Club would be a
"Spreading tl1e News" was the next play given, and the cast was an
exceptionally good one. The play was humorous, and the spirit of the
comedy was increased when the president of the Club and another member
of the cast had to go to police headquarters to get rid of some hand-cuffs
because they had accidentally lost the key during the play.
A scene fro111 "The Merchant of Veniceu was the last play attempted
by the Club and was well presented.
It is certainly to be hoped that the student body next year will go on
with this new organization and put even more enthusiasm in the Club than
was shown this year. XVe wish them success.

Oratory and Declamation
HERE seemed to be more enthusiasm among the students in oratory
p , b and declamation than for some years. The annual local contest for
1913 was held in the High School auditorium. There were three
participants in declamation and two in oratory. Miss Mildred Hart won
first in declamation and Irene Smith second.
In oratory Mr. Lorenzo Guarch carried off the
honors with Mr. Wallace Katz a close second.
The eleventh of April the sub-district con-
test was held in Adrian, and Miss Hart again
secured first place. Mr. Guarch was given third
place i11 oratory.
To the complete surprise of all Miss Hart
LORENZO GUARCH l . .
was only awarded second place in the district
contest held in Hillsdale on April twenty-fifth. Miss Hart was at a slight
disadvantage in appearing lirst on the program. The judges on delivery
were Superintendent C. L. Poor of Hudson, Professor W. L. Shuart of
Battle Creek, and Superintendent L. L. Livermore of Quincy. Their deci-
sion was two to one in favor of Miss Olive Chapin of jackson.
Miss Hart won first in the local, sub-district and district contests last
year and secured third place in the state contest. She merits much praise
for the way in which she has worked and drilled,
and Adrian has great hopes for her success in
oratory next year.
Mr. Guarch had an excellent oration entitled
"Porto Rico's Freedom." It appealed particu-
larly to the American, who is such a lover of
freedom and democracy. He is a native Porto
Rican, and his slight Spanish accent placed him l
at a disadvantage among native Americans. Mu-DRED HART
Miss Ward deserves much credit for the preparation and drill which
was given to the contestants.
T tl1e close of the school year in nineteen twelve there had been no
election of officers for the Deutscher Verem but so many seemed
I to wish to continue the organization at the beginning of school in
the fall that the German students finally met and elected their officers.
To say that the society has been a success would be putting it tamely.
The meetings have been very entertaining as well as instructive. Very few
realize the importance of this society, but much of the love for Germany
and its customs which the German students have before finishing the course
would be lost if it were not for tl1e Deutscher Verein. The songs, stories
and legends, of which the programs consist, are very inspiring.
One of the last meetings of the year was among the most interesting.
Mrs. Hood gave us a talk ou her travels in Germany and made it more real
by passing post cards around illustrating scenes in Germany. W'e were very
grateful to Mrs. Hood for her inspiring talk.
To Miss Corbus is due the credit for the maintenance of the society, for
it is through her efforts that the "Verein" is a success. Our only wish in
leaving tl1e German Club is that the juniors and Seniors next year will
cooperate with Miss Corbus in making the meetings as helpful as they have
been this year.
High School Orchestra
OO much cannot be said in praise of the High School Orchestra. It
is by far the largest and best which Adrian High School has ever
have boasted heretofore. Each one of its members has worked well and is
had. There are more kinds of instruments than our orchestras
deserving of much praise. The orchestra has responded very willingly
when asked to play, and Adrian High School is prouder of its orchestra
than almost any other organization. Many of Adrian's most noted visitors
have pronounced it the best High School orchestra they have ever heard.
Most of the credit, however, must be given to Miss VVrigl1t, who has
drilled the orchestra. She has made selections of pieces which were worth
while and has spared no effort to make this work a success.

She has been connected with the English Department of the

- HE SENIOR CLASS presented "Milestones," a satiric comedy by
Arnold Bennett and Edward Knoblauch, at the Croswell Opera
House on May ninth. The Senior Play Committee were at a loss
for some time to Bud a play which would be suited to the ability of the
class, but at last they decided that "Milestones" was entirely satisfactory.
The largest audience which has ever been present at a play presented
by Adrian High School pronounced it the "best ever," and many who had
seen the play given by professionals spoke of the artistic way in which tl1e
performance was given by amateurs.
By far the greater part of the credit is due to Miss Warcl, who with her
words of encouragement and her contagious enthusiasm niade the players
"get into" their parts. It is our sincere hope that the Senior classes to
come may have as great success in putting on high-class plays as the class
of 1913 has done.
We wish to extend our thanks to Miss Nellie VValker and Mr. John
Eldredge for the support they gave the cast in the final production. To
Harold Cornelius, Carl Straub, Elwood Maurer and their committees is clue
a great deal of the success of the play.

There did not seem to be enough enthusiasm among the members of the
Athletic Assoctation to warrant giving an athletic banquet this year. Mr.
Gallup and Coach Baker instead gave a banquet to the members of the foot-
ball team as had been Mr. Gallup's custom until last year. At this time A's
were awarded to Captain Elwood Maurer, Howell Poucher, Henry Benner,
Arthur Straub, Arthur Sheffield, Lawrence Mead, Carl Straub, James
Mullins, Roy Lehr, Alvin Stoddard and Seymour Brown. It was also
announced at this time that Henry Benner, the big right tackle, had been
elected Captain for 1914. Toasts were given by various members of the
team, and there was a great deal of merriment when it was necessary to flip
a coin to see which one of the "Bubs" should respond to a toast. The
banquet was served by the girls of the advanced domestic science class in
the Central building.
A banquet was given to the members of the girls' and boys' basket-ball
teams by the girls of the advanced domestic science class. The affair was
held in the Central building on the twenty-nfth of March. Toasts were
given by several members of the teams, and after the "eats" the boys elected
Edmund Darling as Captain for the team during the season of IQI3-IQI4.
The affair was a success and it is to be hoped will be repeated next year.
Contrary to the usual custom the annual Junior Hop was held in the
gymnasium of the high school this year instead of at the Armory. The
party, which was held on the evening of April 18, was pronounced by all
present to be the most enjoyable and the prettiest Hop ever given by a
The Rose Maiden
The great musical event of the school year took place on the twenty-
fifth of April, when the High School Chorus, under the direction of
Luella Wright, presented Frederic H. Cowen's "Rose Maiden." The chorus
and orchestra were assisted by Mrs. Snedecor and Messrs. Schoener, Willett,
Matthes, Mott and Skinner. The solo parts were exceptionally well ren-
dered by Miss Iosephine Lambie, soprano, Miss Adelaide Shepherd, con-
traltog Mr. Kenneth Westerrnan, tenor, and Mr. Howard Porter, baritone.
The initial attempt was such a success that it is only natural that its exam-
ple should be followed. Much credit is due the chorus for their hearty
cooperation, but all realized that such a success would have been impossible
without the excellent leadership of Miss Vllright who is untiring in her
The College Reception
One of the most pleasant social events of the whole year was the recep-
tion given by the Faculty and Seniors of Adrian College to the Faculty and
Seniors of Adrian High School on the evening of May 6. The reception was
very informal, and both teachers and students had an enjoyable time. This
event serves to bring the two institutions in closer touch with each other,
and the Senior Class of the College deserves much credit for giving it.
The twelfth annual Lyceum Banquet was held on Wednesday evening,
May 28, in the Baptist Church. The usual large crowd was present, and
the following excellent toasts were given:

The annual Baccalaureate Service for the Class of 191 3 was held in the
Baptist Church on the evening of June 8. Dr. Fred A. Perry of the Meth-
odist Protestant Church gave the sermon, which was very impressive and
inspiring. All who were present appreciated it very much, and the Senior
Class thank him for his kindness in rendering it.
The Class Day program was given on June II at the Croswell Opera
House. The stage was appropriately decorated in the class colors, blue and
gold. The exercises were of a high order and exceedingly well rendered.
At the commencement exercises held in Croswell Opera House June I2
seventy-two graduates were presented with diplomas by Superintendent
Charles W. Mickens. An excellent address was given by President Charles
McKenny of Michigan Normal College. The High School Orchestra and
Choruses furnished music.

THLETICS have been during the past year very successful indeed
fvrrwn in the Adrian High School. While it is true that we have not
turned out any championship teams as in previous years, yet we
have been ably represented in football, basket-ball, baseball and track.
Coach Baker in his one year of work with us has done very much to put
athletics on a higher plane than it has ever been before in the school. He
has always emphasized the fact that all the honors didn't necessarily go with
the winning team, and that frequently the losers cover themselves
Financially the year has not been as marked a success as it should have
been, but with the aid of the money derived from the Athletic Exhibition
there will be a small sum of money left in the treasury to start next year
with, after all the standing bills have been paid. Remember this, students,
if you want to have a good year in athletics in 1914 lend your aid by joining

was rather late in starting. But in spite of this handicap, the
outlook for the season of 1912 was exceedingly good. VVith eight "A"
men back from last year, and several likely candidates from which to
pick, we all felt certain of having a good team.
The local boys went to Toledo for their first game with two regulars
out of the lineup. Toledo had a heavy fast team, and easily took the
victory from the local boys. Adrian started out in getting a touch down
in the first five minutes Of play, scoring on a cross-buck by Capt. Maurer.
But Toledo came back strong and defeated them 39 to 6.
The following week we met and defeated Hudson on our own
grounds. The boys had got the old A. H. S. spirit, and every man
showed stellar form. It was due to this spirit and fight that we amassed
65 points to our opponents O. In the following week we journey to Cold-
water. Capt. Maurer did not go on account of injuries, and this greatly
weakened our team, but as Coldwater was an old rival of ours, we went
determined to win, But fate was against us and we were beaten 20-6.
Sheffield starred in this game both on defense and offense, it was due
to his line plunges that gave us a count. Mullins also played a stellar
game on defense.
W'ith two defeats staring them in the face, the boys woke up and
went after everything, they did this to such an extent that Hillsdale went
home on the lower end of a 22 to 0 score. This game was the best ex-
hibition staged on our home gridiron, Sheflield, C. Straub, Poucher and
Mullins played a great offensive game. It was in this game that the line
showed up well, they held like a stone wall against the repeated onslaughts
of the Hillsdale backs. W
Root who had been playing a stellar game at tackle, was injured and
forced to remain out the rest of the season.
The team had now struck their pace, and the next Saturday they beat
Monroe 65 to O. Although they outweighed Monroe man to man, it was
the team work of Coach Bakers human machine which showed up the
After a week of strenuous practice and after some extensive wagers
had been made by some of the loyal fans we met jackson on our home
grounds. jackson is an old rival of Adrian's and they came after our
scalp. Things started off well when Capt. Maurer put a place kick between
the bars for 3 points. But Jackson started at this point, and the heavy
attack of their back held could not be stopped. jackson went home at
the big end of a 20 to 3 score. But they fought well and deserved it.
There was no individual star of this game: every man played hard and
deserves credit for putting up a good, although losing fight.
On Turkey Day we played Detroit XVestern, and easily defeated them
50 to O. The game was uninteresting, except for a few incidents. such
as A. Straub catching a forward pass which bounded off an opponents
head, and after juggling the ball for a short time finally held on to it,
and scored his only touchdown of the year. Seymour Brown also made
a touchdown by carrying the ball from his position at center. This is a
play which is very seldom used but it certainly worked in Brownies case.
Capt. Maurer led his team in all departments of the game. and has
proved to be one of the best football captains we ever had. Sheffield. C.
Straub. Poucher and A. Straub showed stellar form in carrying the ball,
While Mullins, Stoddard, H. Benner, Root, Mead and l,ehr played a great
defensive game throughout the season.
Brown was the find of the season at center, being a stone wall on
defense. and special mention should be made of Hood: although not a reg-
ular, he responded heroically when called upon. He played a cool, consis-
tent game and will make a valuable asset to next year's team as an accu-
rate passer. The prospects for next year are of the best, with "Hank"
Benner, a tower of strength. to lead the team. and four experienced men
to aid him, the 1913 football team should be a winner.

BAS Ii ET-BALL TEA M
HI prospects for another championship team looked very bright as
I Coach Baker called for all basket ball men to report in the
U gymnasium, the hrst night after vacation With four experienced
men back from last year, and several other promising candidates from
which to choose, we all looked for another winner. But owing to in-
juries, and bad luck, the season did not turn out as well as expected-
lN'e opened the season at home with Coldwater, VVith C. Straub
and Mott out of the game on account of sickness and two substi-
tutes playing in their positions, we easily defeated our old opponents.
XYesterman played the stellar role for Adrian, netting five difficult baskets.
The next week we went to Detroit where we met Eastern, and
were beaten quite badly. This was probably due to the illness of Darlingj
a strong man on defense, and also to a certain amount of stage fright, as
this was the Hrst game on a big floor.
The following week we played Toledo at home. This was with-
out a doubt the best exhibition staged on the local floor. Although
Adrian held the lead throughout the greater part of the game, Toledo
tied the score in the last few minutes of play. According to the rules
the team making the first field goal should win. The next few minutes
of play will always be remembered by Adrian basket ball fans, as the
most thrilling and exciting ever played in the local gymnasium. But after
a few moments of fierce and fast playing, Paul Mott, who had shown
stellar form throughout the game, tossed the winning goal. and saved
the day for Adrian.
The boys, encouraged by this victory, spent the next week in hard
practice so as to be in the best possible condition to meet Detroit Cen-
tral. They were especially anxious to win this contest, because they
wanted to show that A. H. S. could play basket ball even against the
best basket ball coach in Michigan. Before the largest crowd that ever
witnessed a basket ball game in Adrian, our boys, although game to the
last minute, were forced to accept defeat from the best basket ball team
which ever represented Detroit Central. Mention should be made of the
guarding of "Red" Cornelius, who held "Les,' Clark to four baskets
throughout the game. He received injuries in this game which pre-
vented him from playing the rest of the season. I
With a partially new line-up, the boys journeyed to Detroit, where
they easily defeated Western 41 to 18. Carl Straub featured this game
by throwing a grand total of twelve field baskets.
lfVe then met Detroit Eastern, and somewhat encouraged by the
victory over Western, we entertained them in the same' way they did us a
few weeks before at Detroit, and sent them home on the short end of a
29 to 19 score. Adrian scored largely through the stellar playing of
"Art" Sheffield, who threw a total of five field goals.
The next week found us in Toledo, where the Maumee river lads
took the opportunity' of reeking vengeance for their defeat at our hands
earlier in the season. The game was marred somewhat by the unsports-
manlike, attitude of one of the Toledo players, who insisted on playing
so roughly that he was removed from the game. Handicapped by the
large floor, and being a little out of form, the boys went down to
, After another seven days of practice the boys went to Coldwater, ex-
pecting an easy victory. But on account of the inability of Capt. Straub to
throw fouls, missing nineteen out of a possible twenty-one chances, we lost
the game, 28 to 20.
On the following week we journeyed to Detroit, where Central
easily took victory from us, by the score of 5 to 13.
Not to be daunted by a couple of defeats, the boys came back strong
and beat Detroit Western 49 to 19. As this was the last game on the home
floor, every man played his' best. It was the last appearance of Capt.
Straub, Sheffield and Carl Straub in their "A" suits, playing for the last
time before their admiring schoolmates, and they certainly played the
hardest that they ever did for old A. H. S,
The farewell game of the season was played with Ann Arbor on their
own floor the following week. The boys did not go with any great expec-
tation of victory, but nevertheless they fought to the last ditch, and when
the fmal whistle blew, we were at the small end of a 32 to ll score.
In judging the team this year. we must take into consideration the fact
that the line-up had to be changed just when the team was doing well on
account of one man being injured and another disqualified. Let that re-
main as it is, the team as a whole deserve considerable credit for the man-
ner in which they worked and loyally fought for old A. H. S. Especially
is this credit due to Captain Arthur Straub for his untiring work in behalf
of the team, and to Coach Baker in his effort to raise the standard of
Athletics in Adrian High School.
NYhile the prospects for next year do not look very alluring with only
one "A" man back, yet if the student body stand back of basket ball as
they have in years past, old Adrian High will turn out a team of which
they will be proud.

Girls' Baiket - Ball
HOUGH the basket-ball season for the girls' team was a short one
this year it was unusually successful, the girls winning all of the
four games played. As the team was mostly new it had not been
thought advisable to schedule many games ahead, but the new material
worked in so well that before long the team work was very good, and the
girls were playing an interesting game of ball.
On February 14, on the home floor, the first game was played, and
Monroe surrendered to Adrian, 22 to 13. On the following Friday the
return game was played at Monroe, and though this was a much harder and
swifter contest the Adrian team was again successful, the score being II to
5 at the close of the game.
A less interesting game was played at Adrian March I4 with Mont-
pelier. The home team won this game easily by a score of I4 to 3. On
March 28 the last game was played with the Alumnae girls. Though some
of the best of the former players returned for this contest, their lack of
practice caused them to be badly beaten, the score standing 29 to 5 in favor
of the high scl1ool.
Prospects are unusually good for next year, as only one member of the
team graduates. Miss Lulu Bacon has played both guard and forward well,
and her loss will be keenly felt, but the rest of the team will no doubt
return. With Captain Ruth Seiiier, who is unusually good at side center,
Helen Scott as first center, Helen Aspinwall as forward, and the two
guards, Esther Oberlin and Bernice Richard, whose strong work kept our
opponents' score low in every game, and some promising material from this
year's freshman class, the season of IQI4 is expected to be a good one.

NTIL last year Adrian High School has never had an exceptionally
wx NJ good baseball team, but last year the student body seemed to catch
the right spirit and help the team on to victory. Our team this
year will no doubt hold the standard high and from the present showing
should be fully as good as last year's.
Although we had only two "A" men back from last year a11d one other
man who subbed last year, the team started the season out right by winning
from Tecumseh 8 to 7. This being the first game, several errors were made
on both sides, which made the game rather slow. Ashley, a new man, was
easily the star of this contest by getting three hits out of four times up.
Captain Cornelius did most of the hurling for the team this year, and
although not possessing an extra amount of speed, he was cool-headed in
the pinches and pitched consistent ball throughout the season. Stewart, a
new man, did the catching, and he received like a veteran. He had an
exceptionally good throwing arm and by this means pegged out a good
many of the opposing would-be base-stealers.
Maurer, who played first base last year, filled the same position this
season. He was a consistent fielder and a batter to be feared by opposing
pitchers. In one game "Dutch" got three hits out of four trips to the
plate. Sheffield, who covered the keystone sack, was a good little ball
player and the fastest man on the team. The manner in which he went
down to first was a caution, and it took a fast infield out to catch him.
Teachout, who covered the short field, was not exceptionally strong on
fielding, but he made this up in his hitting and base-runningg although it is
his Hrst year in baseball he certainly made good. F ausey, our third baseman
and leadoff man, is little, but oh my! Glenwood was without a doubt the
best tielding baseman on the team, and being short, he was quite addicted'
Ashley, who played left field, was a heavy hitter and a good fielder and
was a valuable asset to the team. Knisel, who played the central garden,
is a fast man 'and a sure man with the "big stick." Eldredge, our right
fielder, was probably the "find" of tl1e season. He never played baseball
in his life until this year, and coming out and making the team showed that
he was good. Besides being a fielder he was a pitcher and stood ready to go
into the box at any moment.
Special mention should be made of H. Benner, Treat, Potts and Mead,
our substitutes, who stuck out during the entire season and did all in their
power to make the baseball team a success.
As THE SICKLE goes to press there are yet several games to be played
and with the present prospects we should at least win a majority of these

HE TRACK TEAM that represented Adrian High School this year
was probably the best one which we have had in several seasons.
X "Qs We were very lucky in getting Mr. Baker of Oberlin for our coach,
as he holds the intercollegiate record for the mile run and besides that is the
best track man that ever represented Ohio in the big meets. With such a
coach and lots of available material, a good team was turned out.
At the local College meet, May 3, we sent a big team as the expenses
were very light, and we were all overjoyed to hear that Adrian had captured
third place in this meet. This was a good showing indeed, as all the larger
schools of the state were represented.
Captain C. Straub and Bartley were the individual point-winners for
Adrian. Bartley got two seconds and one third, and "Bub" won- the mile.
"Bub" has certainly improved over last year's form. He has a good stride
and lots of endurance and easily won the race by a half lap.
On May 2 3 occurred the big meet at Ann Arbor. This meet was open
to all schools in the middle west. We sent a team of three men to this meetg
they were Captain Straub, Bartley and Harris. Bartley was unable to score
in the dashes on account of some excellent talent which was present. Harris
won honor for himself and Adrian High School by securing second in the
discus throw. Straub, the man we relied on to do something in the mile,
was put out of the running by a collision with some other entries who were
inclined to play dirt. Barring this accident, he had good chances of
O , WW ,

Dewey Teachout, Arthur Straub, James Sudborough, Carl Straub, Floyd Harris
winning, as he was then running in third place and only a few feet behind
There is still one meet to which we intend to send a team-at Michigan
Agriculture College on June 7. As this is purely a state meet, our entries
ought to have fairly good success.
Great credit should be given Coach Baker and Captain Straub for their
untiring efforts to put out a winning team and to the men who stayed out
the whole season and worked hard to do something for old Adrian High

Sense and Nonsense
By THE SOPHOMORES
Dreary all winter, now slowly awaking,
Trees their stiff limbs are now stretching with ease
Soon these small buds will burst forth in great splendor
Then leaves and flowers will cover the trees. -H G H
The flowers bloom on hill and dale
In all the shades and hues-
All gone is winter's snow and hail,
The wind its chill strings lose.-L L.
Come and see the flowers bloom,
Velvet petals meet the eye-
But they soon must meet their doom,
And be left alone to die.-I. L.

Something that to me looks hard,

THE FoUR AGES OF HIGH SCHOOL
Freshmen we came into school
Gawky, awkward and unwise,
But about ten months of work
Quickly opened up our eyes.
Now we are the Sophomores proud,
Wiser much in many ways.
Soon we'll be the Juniors grand
And forget our Freshman days.
Then we'll be the Seniors stately,
Strutting 'round the halls all day,
Never working, always striving
just to-make our life more gay.-H
Caesar was a dreadful study,
Paraphrastics such a bore,
Swore they'd never study more.
Now it seems to us no trouble,
We have found a friend at last,
True and faultless, firm and steady,
Who is this staunch aid, you ask?
Captain of the Football Team
A capable leader for the football team not only because of his agress-
iveness and 'dghting spirit but also because he could show his team-mates
the way. He was the most consistent "ground-gainer" on the team and
the High School loses a good player with the passing of "Dutch."

He was the hub of the basket-
ball team both on offense and
defense. Through his

Captain of the Baseball Team
Here's looking at the sorrel-topped leader of the baseball nine! "Red,"
like the captains of the other branches of our athletics, has been a willing

good man down. ' '

With the girls he sure is a winner,
Unlike brother Claude,
Young Hank is a fraud-

Why is it you call money 'dough' ?"
Asked Mildred of her beau,
And grinning wide,
"Dutch" just replied,
I guess because I 'knead' it so."

Before an exam.

And ninety they got from this source.

To THE ANNUAL
Here's to our dear old SICKLE,
A volume of ups and clownsg
We pledge each word-there's none preferred
As we pass the cup around.
Here's to the time it has lost us,
The many good dollars it's cost usg
But we weep 11ot now as we give each vow
To the name a11d fame it has brought us.
So now drink deep your cup of praise,
And still another bumper takeg
You'll call it fine-just in your line-
As witl1 each glass a toast you make.

The time draws near when the class of 191 3 leaves Adrian High School.
It now seems proper that we should express our appreciation to those who
have so kindly assisted our class and especially the Senior Sickle Board.
Early last fall the pessimists and calamity - howlers got out their
hammers and knocked so long, loud and persistently that the Sickle Board
expected trouble in getting advertisements for THE SICKLE. But such was
not the case. The business men never before supported a Sickle Board as
well as they have this year, as can be easily seen by looking through the
advertisements. Without their aid this number of the Annual would have
been impossible. We realize that as an advertising medium THE SICKLE is
not the best, so we especially thank those business men who have supported
us and urge that the High School and its friends patronize the advertisers
in THE SICKLE.
We have the greatest appreciation for the work done by Mr. Finch and
all those connected with his shop. The success of THE SICKLE depends
largely upon their patience and skill.
We are deeply grateful to those who have made the many beautiful
drawings for this book. THE SICKLE would indeed be dull without them.
To Arthur Finch we extend our heartiest thanks for the excellent
binding of THE SICKLE. It would be hard to tind an annual that excels
THE SICKLE in this respect.
The Sickle Board feels that we owe a great deal to Miss Beal. Her
suggestions were very helpful. Miss Beal has always taken an active
interest in our Work and was always ready to lend a helping hand.
To the Staff and Associate Editors we extend our heartiest congratu-
lations for the fine articles that have come from their pens. We also thank
them for the aid which they have given the Sickle Board.
Of all persons there is probably no one who deserves our appreciation
more tha11 Mr. Gallup. He was always ready to encourage and help in any
way he could. He has put in many hours of hard work to make this
SICKLE at least the equal, if not the superior, of all others.
We realize that this is but a small return to those who have aided usg
however, we hope that they will accept this in the spirit in which it is
