Annual awaits your approval. As all other
SICKLE Boards, we have attempted to improve
our work by the mistakes of others and in turn
have made many mistakes ourselves. VV e hope
that the people who take our places next year
will profit by our blunders.
As usual. we have been supported by both
the students and teachers: the business men of
our city have also contributed to our success by
giving their support: and for our part we give

S WE hand this Annual to you, we are conscious that it is not
entirely complete. We know that it might have been better, had
we had the time and means. To those who are in the mood to
criticize, we say, " Be to its faults a little blind."
It would have been impossible to have produced this "Annual" with-
out the aid of the student body, teachers and business men of our city.
Much credit must be given to Miss Cora Palmer and Mr. Reed for their
help and advice, which they have always been willing to giveg to the busi-
ness men of our city, who have made the Sickle a success financially: to
Mr. Finch, for his good workg and last but not least, to the Board of
Editors, from whose pens most of the work in this Annual has come.
HE SENIOR SICKLE is published annually for the purpose of
truthfully reflecting the spirit of the student bocly of Adrian High
School. In order that this issue may be termed a success, the Board
of Editors have held themselves firmly to the conviction that they must
give a truthful account of the spirit of our student body, as our prede-
cessors have done. L.
We are convinced that the spirit of this high school is not just what
it should be. Toward a certain part of the students this criticism is direct-
ed and we hope that these words will not fall on deaf ears. To be sure, a
great deal of enthusiasm is displayed in the literary societies, in debate, in
oratory and in athletics. But it is shown only by a few. There is a large
majority in school who do not take interest in anything but their studies,
and many times not even in these.
It is these that we desire to awaken to the fact that they owe some-
thir1g,to the High School. It is not the common "knockers" or "sobbers"
that we are after. They are impossible. They always have existed and
always will. But we don't give up hope of infusing a little "pep" into the
Adrian has been cited by Capt. Lewis, of the United States Army, as
the most patriotic city of its size from the Atlantic to the Pacific. It is
true that the business men of the city are doing their part, and that the
boys of the High School, who have affiliated themselves with the Light
Guards and junior American Guards, deserve much praise for their work:
but how about the loyalty of the school? It should be shown by all of the
students. Many of our students believe in getting all they can out of
school, but they give mighty little in return.
Remember that Adrian is to be a bigger, better and busier city, so lend
a hand and let the High School do its part.

URING the past year some of the Adrian High School students
have been very slack about getting to school on time. In some
cases there were good excuses but a little extra effort on the part of
most of them would have prevented their tardiness. "The clock was slow"
or "They did not get up in time" are the excuses given over and over again.
But is it not the duty of the students to see that the clock is right or that
they form habits of rising earlier? No business man wants his employees
to arrive at their places of business just a little late, nor will the man who
possesses this habit be able to hold his position. We are in the habit form-
ing period of our lives, now. The business world demands men and women
who make it their duty to be on time. The school work is our business, and
the work that you do in High School is a sample of what you will do in the
business world. Try to form habits that will help You to be efficient men
.Q N THIS day and age one of the great advantages in our lives is to
3- be able to express ourselves clearly and forcefully. Nothing is ac-
complished now, except through organization, and one is not able
to be an important factor in any organization unless he is able to express
his thoughts in a concise and logical manner.
Very few people attain this art of speaking without a great deal of
training. In Adrian High School there are two societies that aim to de-
velope the students into good speakers: the Athenian, for the girls and the
Lyceum, for the boys. During the past year the interest in these organiza-
tions has not been up to the standard and the students have failed to grasp
the opportunity offered them.
To the fellows and girls who will be in Adrian High School next year
and who want to gain something that will always give you help, we say,
"join one of these societies." But don't just join and attend the meetings.
Be an active member and do all you can to make these societies a success.

Bliss liredin taught in Adrian High School for a year and
a hall. Very few teachers have in this time endeared them-
selves to the students as did Miss liredin. Her interest was
not only shown in her English classes, but she took her "pep"
with her out into the athletic held and to the gymnasium,
where she created a great interest in basket ball among the
girls. As a teacher in the schools of fhicago, we feel that
Miss llredin will make good and our sincere good wishes go
it with her.
Nliss Ward has been connected with the Adrian Public
Schools since 1908. Her untiring efforts in her work have
made her one of the best teachers that has ever entered
Adrian High School. She has had charge of the public speak-
ing, Senior Play and girls' athletics and the records made by
thesc departments have been proof enough of her ability.
The vacancy that will be left by Miss Ward will be one hard
to till. The student body, teachers and people of Adrian
wish her the best of success in her work at the University
of Chicago next year.
Here is a teacher who is popular with everybody. She
and "Prof," will always be remembered as being teachers who
could drop their dignity when occasion called. She was al-
ways interested in and always look an active part in the
social events of the High School. But she also was a loyal
supporter of the school in all its athletic, dramatic and musi-
cal activities. lie doubt if another teacher can hold the
place in the estimation of the student lvody as Miss Kirk did.

lN MEMORY OF LELAND PENN
There is no death! the stars go down to rise upon some otherishore
And bright in heaven's jeweled crown, they shine forever more.
There is no death! the dust we tread shall change, beneath the summer showers
To golden grain, or mellow fruit, or rainbow tinted flowers.
Although with bowed and breaking heart, with sable garb and silent: tread,
We bore his senseless dust to rest, and sary that he is "dead",
He is not dead, he has but passed beyond the mists that blind us here
lnto the new and larger life of that serener sphere.
He has but dropped his robe of clay to put his shining raiment on,
He has not wandered far away-he is not lost nor gone.
Though disenthralled and glorified, he still is here and loves us yet,
The dear ones he has left behind he never can forget.
For near us, though unseen, the dear, immortal spirit treads,
All of the boundless universe is life--there is no dead!

EACH ERS, parents and friends, the Class of Nineteen Hundred
Sixteen salutes you and bids you welcome.
We have now finished our High School life. In looking back. the
time seems very short since we were Freshmen. During four long years
we have been climbing the ladder of knowledge, only to find that it is but
a stepping-stone to greater and better things. However, we feel that we
have reached a mile-stone in our lives, and we are glad you are here to-
night. It shows that you have an interest in our class and in what Adrian
High School is doing.
We are proud of the democracy of our class Its members have come
from almost every walk of life. In it are to be found the sons and daugh-
ters of the minister and the teacher, the lawyer and the doctor, the me-
chanic and the farmer-each having the same privileges and opportunites
-each preparing for his or her life work in this great and glorious com-
We especially greet our teachers. They have always been kind, cheer-
ful and helpful: they have pushed many stumbling-blocks from our paths.
Without their sympathetic aid, some would have given up the struggle in
their pursuit of knowledge.
Our parents have sacrificed greatly for us, and we hope that we can
justify the confidence they have placed in us. We trust many in the class
will do good and honorable work in the world, and we will always remem-
ber that our parents have helped us to make possible whatever success we
Our friends and classmates have also given us many words of encour-
agement. The relation with the underclassmen has always been pleasant,
and we wish them every success in their remaining years of school life.
Although our class is not as large as some that have gone before us,
yet we feel that some of the members are worthy of especial mention. In
oratory the class has been very successful and our historians will show you
their victories equally as great. We hope the class musicians will charm
and delight you with their selections. The prophets will unroll our future
to you and show you what our destiny is to be. We hope that every mem-
ber of the class will be a success and prove a credit to Adrian High School,
and that we will never be the ones to put a blot on our school's fair name.
Once again, kind friends, I bid you welcome.

"Tl-IE PARAIVIOUNT ISSUE"
HAT a significance is borne by that one word, America! It apos-
trophizes liberty, union, and peace-the essentials of human hap-
V73 piness. Its foundation frame, the master-work of the world! It
is the cradle of liberty, the birthplace of genius, the melting-pot of the
nations, the richest land in material resources! Yet amidst all this power
and honor and glory there stands out this one fact,-that we are "proud
but unprepared." It is the handwriting on the wall! Your land and my
land is setting up its honor and independence as a rich prey for the armed
powers of the world.
The ultimate question is, how much longer are we to exist in this state
of unpreparedness? Who is it that cannot see that we are inviting that
monster, Militarism, to set his gory spikes on our sacred soil? The Pres-
ident sees it, our great statesmen see it, the press is almost unanimous in
pointing out the fact, and millions of people consider steps toward arma-
ment a grave necessitv.
But I am ashamed to say that there are some few who oppose any
steps whatever toward the security of national independence. tk ,F PF at
They say 'there will be no more wars when the present European con-
flict is over. It is absurd! Can they suppose that the bankrupt nations
of Europe will stand aside and watch the United States enjoy the riches
received at their expense? We will be like a fat spring lamb among a
pack of hungry wolves. Pl: it it it Some will claim that armament will
be a departure from national traditions and policies. They may call it
that if they wish, but if our tradition policy points out the fact that we
have been unprepared all these years, it is high time that we should change.
Indeed, our policy has been such! From our earliest history our fore-
fathers have shcd their blood most freely because they were unprepared.
Notwithstanding their great show of patriotic zeal at the Battle of Bunker
Hill, the American troops were driven from their well-fortified position
because they were only raw recruits and could not withstand the assault of
the disciplined soldiers of Britain. Washington was forced to winter at
Valley Forge because his men had no training. The Father of our Coun-
try once said, "Had we a standing army in the beginning, we should never
have had to cross the Delaware in 1776, trembling for the fate of America."
if vt :F nl' :F The most striking instance of useless loss of life came in
our Civil War. Five hundred thousand Americans went down in cold
blood during the four wasting years of this confiict. And the reason P-The

north was unprepared to quell a rebellion in its early stages. Other equal-
ly deceptive arguments are advanced by the pacilists. Perhaps the future
generations of America will forgive them on the ground of misled convic-
On the other hand we have those who are classified as extremists for their
highly radical views on armament. But the harm they do is slight com-
pared to that done by those who still insist on "peace at any price." In-
deed, there is one statesman who is held up before the public as an extrem-
ist to whom the American people are greatly indebted. It is he who coin-
ed that very phrase which has brought the nation to the threshold of a ref-
ormation. His attitude toward this great national issue is not to be wholly
condemned and the country is in need of men of such a patriotic character
as his. The coming generations will thank him for his services.
Those who clamour for "peace at any price" do not seem to know
what they are doing. They cannot comprehend what the outcome of the
position which they have taken will be. I see that scene in future times
when those who could not choose for themselves are giving their lifeblood
for those pacifists who choose their future for them. A host of invading
warriors has set foot on our continent! Our Hag is torn down and trampled
in the dust! Cities are razed, industry is crushed, the people are subjected
to a tyrannical rule and all the honor and glory of the United States goes
down in ruin! :F it :fi if il: The republic is a failure!
But lo! the scene changes. Before me I see the triumph of reason!
Common sense is the victor! I see the stars and stripes Heating over a
land at peace! Greater industries have sprung up. The highest position
of honor and respect among nations has been earned. The republic has
proven that democracy may wisely foresee and sufficiently prepare. And
behind all this wealth and glory, I see a loyal citizenry, trained to the use
of arms and ready at a moment's notice to repel the mammon God of Con-
quest. It is a new age of human development and civilization!
It is needless to ask you in which of these two scenes you would rather
participate. But before the setting for the latter may be completed, there
are a multitude of things to be accomplished. Our president says that the
gravest threats against our national peace and safety are uttered within
our own borders. Foreigners, welcomed to America and nurtured under
the American Hag, are determined to bring this country into the European
struggle. "These creatures of treason and ingratitude must be crushed
out." They must be taken from our soil before we can rest in peace. Let
us have no hyphenated Americans. Let Americans be Americans-loyal,
steadfast and true! Let the socialists cease their clamours and let all in-
ternal strife and anarchy be brought to a quick end. Let us put some new
ideals before us and think not only of receiving protection from the Hag
as sem en sacmte. ua
. . 1. sa " Z iii
but of protecting that flag. Remember that individuals have a duty to
perform to the nation as well as the nation has a duty to individuals. Let
our congressmen keep their fingers out of the so-called "pork-barrel" in
making their appropriations for the national defense. Let them acknowl-
edge that there is a grave possibility of a war. Let them say that we
have sufficient funds to provide for adequate defense and last of all let
them remember that their first duty is to the people whom they represent.
The faith of the republic is pinned on them and let them recognize that
their honor and self-respect requires them to do their duty as they have
sworn to do it.
Now, in our present weakness, the very motto on our coins seems to
mock us. The inscription reads, "In God We Trust." It points a linger
of folly at us and reminds us that "God helps those who help themselves."
For, as long and as Right and Wrong exist in this world, conflicts between
nations will be inevitable" Right and Wrong will always exist. It is left
for the "Right-doers to protect the Right from the Wrong-doersf' So let
us prepare. "And in this we are no partizans, but the heralds and prophets,
ofa new age."

York, Ruth Hoadley.
A married lady from New York, Gladys Whitney.

Cutter: 'ADO take off your things and get warm, it's such a horrid day."
QBoth take off wraps and seat themselvesj
Ruth: "Well, I can't make myself believe we four are together again."
Foote: "You certainly have had loads of experience, Gladys. Do tell
us about New York and some of the styles. I suppose we look back-
woodsey to you."
Gladys: "Well, let me tell you. I was in Wanamakefs the other day,
looking at some of the fall styles, and whom do you suppose I saw? Helen
Davis, acting as a model."
Cutter: Oh, no! Helen Davis who used to be in our class! Well,
who'd have thought that of her?"
Gladys: "And there was "Bill" Shepherd up to his old tricks, walking
around and flirting with all the good-looking models."
Foote: "Too bad! Too bad! I was in hopes that Bill would out-
grow those early tendencies."

Foote: "I was reading in the paper that Illah Myers and Ethel

Slapped Ethel in the Mouth With the Po'k Chop?" Oh, I wish I could have
seen it and both of the girls. I can't imagine it, but Carl always was a

We had the opportunity of attending a Chautauqua entertainment last
summer and, much to our surprise, who should appear on the program but

them again-the first time since Class Day."
Ruth: Wouldn't I liked to have seen them!-and another person,

Boston on VVoman Suffrage."
Foote: "Say, they are something to be proud of!"
Gladys: "They surely are, but what of our art editor, Mamie O'I-learn?
I expected a lot of her.
Cutter: "Mamie? She has just returned from studying in an art
school in Germany."
Ruth: "Oh, say! I got a letter from Mrs. Cutler, formerly Ruth
Vedder, telling me all her troubles. She's suing for a divorce on the grounds
of extreme cruelty. I don't blame her a bit, you know Gerald always was
picking on someone. She said that she thought Gerald would probably

Foote: "I'm getting away from the subject, I know. But the fun-
niest thing occured the other day and I haven't been able to think of a
single thing since. Our old horse 'LDolly" was sick and there was a new
veterinary surgeon in town and so I sent for him. And who do you sup-
pose came up but john Fint. john didn't miss his calling, he always was
good at doctoring ponies."
Ruth: "Well, now, Gladys, tell us something of your trip abroad."
Gladys: "It certainly was funny, the number of people I bumped in-
to that I knew. Going over on the ship was Charles Ashley, Lyle Langdon
and Henry Wickham. You know Lyle is one of the greatest professors of
languages in the world. I-le speaks ten languages now and is still learning

more. Charles Ashley was going for a rest. You know that he was the
active factor in the doing away entirely with cigarettes. Henry VVickham
was a professor of physics and was going to study some special thing-
They are all married. Charles married Adaline Dawson. You remember
she was such a cute girl. Henry married Katherine Skeels, but divorced
her because she wanted to dress too fashionably. Lyle married Alice
Peterson and they get along just line together."
Foote: "Just think! There are six out of our class married, but we
have some old maids, anyway. Gretchen Seibert and Faye Coye are nurses
and they like it so well that they won't give it up. Then Meta Calkins,
Edna Reed and Doris Reed are living together on a homestead in Montana
lighting centipedes and rattlesnakes. They certainly have my sympathy.
Still, I don't know whether it's worse to do that or to try to stop the
plague in China as Bessie Strong and Medea Peterson are doing."
Ruth: "It seems as if they could have found something else to do,
doesn't it? But say, just think! most of the rest of the class are mar-
ried. julia Abbott and Everett Bird are living about ten miles from here
on one of Mr. Abbott's farms and are happier than ever."
Cutter: "Yes, and Leonard Morse and Caroline Robins are married
and living in Riga. Leonard is Justice of the Peace out there. I saw him
a few weeks ago and he said that he had just had the office a little while,
when he had the honor of marrying Klea Smith and "Soapie" jackson.
They ran away to get married. You know "Soapie" is one of the greatest
arguers in the politics of the United States."
Gladys: "Well, let me tell you. The other day I went into a tea-
room that had just opened and who should be running it but Rosella Lewis,
Agnes VanDeusen and Marie Moxson. They had a very clever little place."
Foote: "Well, that's what I wanted to do, but Cutter wouldn't see it
that way, so here I am, doing nothing."
Ruth: "Our class surely did take to 'eats,' Garnette Laudenslager,
Gertrude Spielman and Clara McClouth are running a bakery at Dough-
Cutter: "Have you noticed our new policemen? We surely have a
large force now Merle Kerr, LaVelle Hoagland and Norman Schoen have
had the honor bestowed upon them of guarding the four corners."
Gladys: "Everyone else in our class is either married or engaged.
Of course, you know about Marjorie Conlin and Lawrence Bevins. They
have acquired great wealth and Marjorie has as her companion, Gertrude
Haig. jo and Harry are married now. You know jo was engaged before
she left school but she changed her mind and switched off."

be married soon to Karl Smith."

the members of the Class of 1916 of Adrian High School, of the
City of Adrian, County of Lenawee, and State of Michigan, realiz-
ing that our existence is about to end, and knowing full well how
great a calamity will fall on the said school at the time of our departure,
being furthermore of full age and of unusually sound mind and memory,
do hereby, in the hope that the careful provisions of the following docu-
ment will enable the executor to manage the said school in at least a
semblance of its erstwhile greatness, make, publish and declare this to be
our last will and testament, revoking any and all former wills by us here-
First: We order and direct that all our just debts and funeral ex-
penses be paid by the executor in a reasonable length of time.
Second: We give, devise and bequeath to the Juniors the following
estate, both real and imaginary:
1. The Senior "Dignity" and all the Senior privileges you can dig up.
2. The following, who have been our companions since our entrance
into this glorious institution and with whom we now have to part: Ed-
ward Isley, Chandler Bond, Forrest Colvin, Leland Deibele, Lawrence
Hughes, Hazen McComb, Rex Nottingham, Leon Pierce and Leslie Pierce.
Third: We leave to the Sophomores the exclusive rights to sell season
tickets for Chapel to the Freshmen.
Fourth: VVe will and bequeath to different members of the Faculty
1. To Miss May R. Patch,a very sad little story entitled, "The
End of Patience," or "Why 'Friend George' got a Blue Slip."
2. To Mr. F. D. Sturtevant, a philosophic treatise by Kit Carson on
"The Reward of Dignity."
3. To Mr. Orville A. Powers, a short discourse on "Crafting Trees."
We don't know much about it, but it sounds feasible.
4. To Miss Frances Kirk, a handy family manual by an experienced
housewife entitled, "The Chagrin of Satan," or "How I Keep 'Friend
Hubby' at Home Nights."
Fifth: We, and various of our numbers, give and bequeath to certain
students of the High School the following:
1. To Carl Dean, Leonard Morse leaves all the gentle arts with which
he CMorsej so completely captivated the High School girls. Now that
Morse is gone, a clear field is left to Mr. Dean, and he advises Carl to

2. Gerald Cutler wills that some other fellow may go up to see
Thelma next year when he is away at college, but he still reserves the right
of having a date any time when he is home on a vacation.
3. The gentle art of spreading the salve and of taking up as much
time as possible in one way or the other, in which so many of our class
were extremely proficient, is now willed to john Dunn to be held by him

Sixth: In view of the fact that there are no undergraduates worthy of

OVV like a dream it seems! The four years of our High School
career are finished. While we cannot live them over again in real-
ity, we will often think of them and recall the pleasures of our
High School life. The last year has gone like a whirlwind. The events
have piled themselves upon one another in such rapid succession that for a
time we are dazed. It will not be until we are away that we will come to
realize the value of the things we have learned here.
Sometimes we think that, if we had it all to do over again, it would be
done so differently. I wonder if we should have the chance what altera-
tions we would make. I do not doubt but that when we should have
reached the end again, we would say with Henry VanDyke:-
"What's that? I've had another day and
wasted it again? A
A priceless day on empty dreams,
Another chance in vain?"
Here we are again at the crossing of the roads. We alone can make
the choice which will lead us to success or failure, the two possibilities
ahead. None of us can tell what awaits us. It is for us to go out and see
for ourselves. Which of these roads shall we follow? What course shall
we take? No one can decide for us. This time we must make our own
decision. Our future lies in the choice we make of all the roads which to.
day are open to us. A few may follow several roads, only traveling a short
time on each one, always looking about for a smoother, easier path, only
to find in the end that they have wasted much valuable time. Others will
keep on one road, trudging along, rather slowly, perhaps, at times, but will
eventually reach some end worthy of their efforts.
What a small part, and yet how complete a part we play in this world.
We are rushed here and there by the life flood. Sometimes we receive
hard knocks. While at school we were sheltered from these by the pro-
tecting hand of our instructors. They have endeavored to train us in such
a way that we will be able to cope with the trials of life. Our petty wor-
ries and trials at school have only served to prepare us for the greater
things to come.
We all hate to say "good-bye." Still there will be many times when
a farewell must be said. We must not dwell on the sadness of leaving one
another, for we must think of what lies before us. While we wish to keep
as a precious memory that which has been beautiful during our High
School life, we must look upon it as a beginning rather than as an end.
When we have taken the last fervent farewell, we must turn back no more
but keep our eyes ahead, for the oftener we take another parting glance at
the old things, the harder it will be to strike out into the unknown.
Therefore, in behalf of the Class of 1916, I bid you farewell.

THE WHITE AND THE BLUE
Lyric by Grelchen Seiberl, Music by Ernesl R. Ball
In the dear old town of Adrian,
The spot I love the best,
VVhere the maple trees grow taller,
And the elms are of the best,
Is a school of reputation
For its honor and its worth,
And to me it can't be beaten
By a single place on earth.
Oh! hail to our High School, our dear old High School,
Our colors, pure white and true blue,
Come join with your voices,
All nature rejoices
In rich tones so pleasing to view,
Oh, dear is each High School friend,
Sweet is the charm they lend,
Each in his own pleasing way:
For we will be true to the white and the blue,
And to Adrian's old High School days.
Oh! sweetly the days will linger
In mem0ry's chamber hall,
And friendship, true and tender
That at times we will recall,
And our lives will be the brighter
As we battle with our fears,
And we climb the hill of knowledge
Through the vista of the years.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
The Tale of lhe Olzslreperous Children Who
Would Not be Daunlcd
NCE upon a time there came into notice a Class of Young Hope-
M fuls who swarmed into the Adrian Brain Factory, to have a few
New Tucks put into their Gray Matter. In that Hrst year they
had the Upper Classmen sewed up in a Sack when it came to Talent. The
Girls, too, made a Decided Hit because they were Novelties.
The next year these Young Hopefuls, having cut their Wisdom Teeth,
started bravely up the Ladder of Success. The King Pins in the other
Classes were soon forced to recognize the Better Element
The third year was an Eventful One for the Climbers. They won Cham-
pionships in Foot Ball and Basket Ball, but they didn't let that bother them
any. They were capable of It and they knew It. During that year sev-
eral troublesome times arose. The Members of this Class put on Cor-
rugated Brows and looked serious until the Clouds blew over.
Present indications all go to show that the Obstreperous Children will
take an Important Place in the Brain Factory next year. Let the Other
Young Hopefuls relinquish hope as the Class of '17 has a Corner on all
the Bright Lights.

.L T IS with great satisfaction that we announce the men who will take
up our work next year. VVe think that the faculty could not have
chosen a better combination.
The Editor-in-Chief, Wallzlce Page, is one of the fellows of whom
Adrian High School is proud, and she is justly so. He has been active in
all school affairs, and also has the highest scholarship record of his class.
With these achievements, together with his popularity, we think the choice
could not have been improved.
The Business Managers, VValker Gibford and Ross Bittinger, are very
able students, who also have been active in school.
With inen of this type in charge, we know that the 1917 SICKIJE will

SOPI-IOIVIORE CLASS HISTORY
HE sun, which was nearing the end of its course and would soon dip
q over the horizon, dyed the narrow street in ruddy hues, and silence
brooded over the ancient, tumble-down houses. A young boy
crept down its length, and, stopping before the door of one of the most de-
crepit of the dwellings, reverently greeted the old man seated upon a rug
spread over the doorstone. Roused by the words, he raised his eyes from
an old and tattered volume which he had been diligently perusing, "Ah
boy," he said, "have you come for the story?" Y
"Aye, Sire," the youth replied, 'tif you would read even a short one I
would be very grateful."
The elder gazed at the book he held in his hand and responded, "I will
tell you the history of a wonderful race that I have been reading about in
this old volume:
"Once upon a time Qfor all true stories begin this way! there was a band
of people called Freshites, who, unsatisfied with their old location, desired to
migrate to a country toward the east called School. They set out with all
their possessions and when they reached this promised land, found it to
be even more productive than they had thought in the growing of brains
and wit and many other things they needed in their daily life. The old in-
habitants of this wonderland, aroused and alarmed by these new arrivals,
gathered together and made a great noise of fear and protest.
f'But these Freshites remained undaunted, refusing to be ousted from
this wonderful country. Their leader, George the First, piloted them safe-
ly through their first year of life in the new land and proved a ruler of
wisdom and courage. In the contests of strength and muscle they were all-
conquering and gained the leadership in the sport called basket ball and
provided a Hflaming torch" to lighten the path of the base ball team.
"Their women, exceedingly young and beautiful, had great gifts of
speaking and astonished the elders with their use of the silvery tongue.
"The next year the Wise Fates brought to them from a far country a
worthy staff to lean upon, one cane CKoehnD, which came from a famous
city, full of strength and power to rule these people, who by reason of their
increasing power in the land, were by that time called Sophites. The men
that year had become weakened from much study and perhaps late hours.
Therefore they stood but second in the sports. The tribeswomen, greatly
aroused by these misfortunes, rose up, winning many victories in athletics.
By their bright colors, which were most startling, they dazzled the older
tribes and spread great light over the country.
"They entertained the older tribes with a wonderful spectacle which
was unique in its originality and perfection. Their fame soon spread over

the country and a great future was predicted for every member of the
"Oh, Sire," breathed the boy, "tell me more of this strange and wonder-
"I cannot," he replied, "for this volume is but a half of their glorious
history. Perhaps, some day, I will discover an old and musty volume,
which will contain the rest of this tribe's history."
As he spoke, the sun slipped down out of sight as though it had waited
for the conclusion of the ancient's story and then had gone on its way to
the west, full of this wonderful tale.

F RESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
HEN the Class of 1919 came forth on that September morning to
appear before, and, as we supposed, to receive judgment from the
upper classmen, the tables were turned, and we placed our judg-
ment on the under classmen of the Junior High, for with this year came
the inauguration of the junior High School.
After several hours of diligent work, Qduring which the students made
themselves familiar with the various roomsj a great menace arose against
the Freshmen, or rather the Seniors of junior High. With the passing of
classes came the sound of many queer gesticulations at either end of the
hall. A close examination of this revealed the fact that several of our
honorable classmen found that the stairs were too long to descend the or-
dinary way, and therefore were allowing themselves to descend in the more
progressive manner of sliding down to the Hoor below.
Soon, however, we settled down to a reasonable pace, and then
began the honors. With the fall season came foot ball and with this came
glories to the class. Did we not see more men on the first team of our
class than any other? Did we not also see Victory after victory approach
us in the interclass games? Of this we are duly proud. but we did not rest
here. With time came an invitation from the Senior High to appear in a
body at a mass meeting to be held in their building. Here again the class
of 1919 displayed its "Pep." In this meeting the Athletic Association be-
gan its campaign for membership and when this campaign was closed it
was found that, although we were in the Junior High, there were, nevertheless,
more members of the Athletic Association in our class than in any other.
Then came a lull in this progressive Work, and it was several weeks
before another opportunity appeared. This came in the form of a trip to
Monroe with the basket ball team. An attempt was made by some of our
superiors to arrange for a special train to transport the "Rooters ' of the
High School to that city, but it met with little success. A week previous
to the game, some of our illustrious boosters started out on a campaign to
secure a car on the T. 8: W. for the same purpose. This met with great
success, and was the climax to a successful year for us.
Now, up to this time all these feats had been accomplished without even
the class being organized, but in February we decided that it would be
proper for a class with the standing of ours to be led by a suitable presi-
dent. This we found in the form of a man by the name of Smith. He
had already made a good name for himself by pushing, and in every way
possible making a better and more worthy class. We now look upon the
world with a fearless eye, as we have an exceptionally strong organization
to back us up.

"WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT?"
HE clock in the assembly room stretched its hands to the midnight
A 1 hour with a loud click.
"Hm," he muttered, "how I wish I could scream aloud. It is
so dark and gloomy here."
"That is the way I feel," said a seat a few feet away. "Now that
there is no one here to annoy us, let us have a chat by ourselves. It is
such a relief not to have some one pouncing on me every few minutes."
"Well," broke in a voice from the rear of the room, "You would have
something to complain about if you had my burden. Why, if Bill Shep-
herd doesn't give me a rest soon I will have a collapse."
A disturbance was heard from the platform.
"I think I am the worse abused of any one here. From morning until
night I receive a continual beating. I understand that Miss Patch is try-
ing to instill discipline, but I wish she would pad that instrument called a
ruler, or have mercy on me," whined the platform desk.
"I believe Iam fortunate," said a small plant box, reclining in the
back window. "I get along nicely, and even have kind attention from
your abuser, brother desk. But sometimes a thoughtless person drops the
curtain on my head and someone is always testing me to see if I am pars-
ley. This situation is pleasant, however, and it will not be long before I
get out into the world."
"That is true," piped a book from under a desk, "and I never go out
into the open, except when once a day I am grabbed from here and pushed
back again in the same haste. My companions around me often tell of
all the strange things they encounter. Sometimes they go to a foot-ball
game, or even to the 'movies.' "
The dictionary said, Iaughingly, "I am quite amused at the scholars
that pore over me each day. They pull my leaves and mutter to them-
selves, but I know they will never remember those long words they write
"I, too, am only used as a source of information. I am only a picture
hanging upon the wall, and no one looks at me except upon request. I
sometimes hear a person saying, 'I never noticed this before,' or, 'What is
the name of this?' But then, I am thankful for that little attention."
"Indeed, you are lucky not to be molested," scolded the bulletin
board. "Items are posted upon me daily from dry literature to a basket-
ball game. I always know when heavy strokes are forced on me, that
something exciting is going to happen. Of course, I am quite popular, es-
peciaIly," he laughed, "if the result of a victorious game is seen on me."

A slight chuckle was heard from the trophy cabinet.
"The High School has had pretty hard luck in athletics for a few
years. I don't seem to receive any more pictures of champion teams, but
am patiently waiting for one. From what l hear of the stars this year, I
think I will have possession of another before long. It gets so tiresome
looking at the same old articles in the same places, and the students very
seldom notice me."
"Oh, will you please cease this grumbling and let me rest," said a
near-by seat despairingly. "The night is quickly passing and my torment-
ors will soon be back again. They keep up a continuous babble back here
all the day. It certainly is the noisiest corner in the room."

"HELEN, THE SILENT"
. A 3 I l 1
EI EN C raham and her sister Mollie, were quietly sitting in the li-
brary, idleing away their time. Mollie soon grew uneasy and went
liiiiflfllil to the window to watch the falling rain. For this was one of those
days in late spring when it rains and rains until a'l the world seems a
very dreary place. "O, dear!" sighed Mollie. "I do wish the postman
would hurry up and come. I hope that he brings me a letter, or an invi-
tation, or something to relieve this awful monotony."
Helen wisely kept silent, for she well knew that when Mollie was in a
mood of this kind, it was best for her to hold her tongue. Silence was one
of Helen's chief traits. It seemed to her that she could never think of
anything to say, when it was time for her to say it. At school, when Mr.
Prim would say, "Now, Miss Helen, what is the date of the battle of Blen-
heim?" her brain would be thinking, "seventeen hundred-four," while her
tongue would be saying, "I don't know." If it hadn't been for Helen's
ability to write a good test, her grades would have been sadly lacking at
the end of the month. On the other hand, Mollie's active mind was al-
ways working, so that she was ready to make a quick response whenever
called upon, but her brain had the stability of a sieve in retaining what she
The postman was soon sighted coming down the walk. Mollie rushed
eagerly to the door to meet him and received, to her joy, several letters.
Among them was an invitation. 'lOh, Helen, "she cried, l'we're in-
vited to a party, a conversation party over at Doris Blair's on April 30th,
and she wants us to come early, in order to help her receive the guests.
Now, isn't that grand! and you can wear that new dream of a party
dress of yours. It will be just the thing."
"Very grand, indeed," replied Helen, " but what would I do at a con-
versation party? I wouldn't be able to think of one thing to say." l'Well,
you're going to go anyway," laughed her undaunted sister, "so you can just
begin to plan your conversation from now until then."
At last the night of April thirtieth Came. Helen and Mollie arrived
early, as Doris desired, and while they were talking over Doris' plans for
the evening, there came a timid knock at the door. The hostess went to
see who was there and was confronted by a small boy, who said, f'My
brother, Jimmie, he's got the measles and he can't come. He said for me
to tell you he'd written, for he thought he was going to be alright. And,
O say--he said I should say that he was most awful sorry." With that
the small elf was off like a deer, and Doris came back with a look of dis-
may on her face.

"O girls, what am I going to do? jimmie Brown has the measles,
and now there won't be boys enough to go round." "I will just slip out
the back door and never be missed, and that will make, matters alright,"
suggested Helen, starting to suit her action to the words. "O, nothing
like that," replied her hostess, grasping her by the arm. After pondering
for a few moments, her face suddenly cleared, and she said, "I'll tell you
what I can do. Now, there's old Uncle Henry, you know. He is almost
eighty, but I believe I can press him into service. He's deaf, but can hear
fairly well with his ear trumpet, and he'd enjoy having the girls talk to
him. He likes young people real well."
VVhen the guests had all arrived there were fourteen, counting Uncle
Henry. The boys were given slips .of paper with the names of the girls
on them, in the order that they were to converse.
Helen saw coming towards her a boy with a mischievous twinkle in
his eye. She wondered what he would wish her to talk about. He polite-
ly seated himself at a table near her and said that his topic of conversation
was "silence" Helen felt that she could play that part very admirably,
and so for five full minutes they sat in perfect silence. At the end of that
time, when the bell sounded for all to change, the boy looked at her and
laughingly said, "Well, you 're a brick, you're the first girl I ever knew
who could keep still for more than a minute at a time. I am going to try
it on the others and see if they catch on as quickly as you did."
Soon Helen saw coming towards her Bobbie Smith, who sat next to
her at school and who always gave a little chuckle to himself every time
she said, "I don't know." "Well, there's one thing that I won't do this
time, and that is to say, 'I don't know' to one thing that he says to me,"
determined Helen. Bobbie came, grinning, and in exactly the manner of
Mr. Prim said, "Miss Helen, who was Cedric the Saxon?" "Why, he was
our Great Dane Dog, and named for some ancient man in history," re-
plied Helen. "He was the best watch-dog that any one could have ever
owned." She rambled on, telling of Cedric's various accomplishments,
until she had Bobbie in gales of laughter. I
By this time she was beginning to like talking, and when she saw
bashful Henry Dennison, with cheeks blushing like a baldwin apple and
eyes with a most woe-begone expression in them, coming in her direction,
she began to take a sort of motherly interest in him. He suggested that
they talk about tennis, but she knew very well that he knew nothing about
that at all, and so she said, "I don't believe you like parties very well, do
you?" "Like 'em," he grumbled with a scowl, "well, I should think
not. I wouldn't have come a step, if mother hadn't made me. Besides,
this collar that I've got on is just about two sizes too small." Helen
laughed and switched the topic to baseball, in which she knew Henry
is semen s ucnt U 3'
had the deepest interest. When the bell sounded for them to move again,
Henry left with a face as broad with a smile as it had been long with a
frown when he came.
Now had come her turn to visit old Uncle Henry, who was out on the
veranda, because he did not like the noise inside. "Well, little girl," he
said, "suppose we just sit still and be quiet and you can be thinking about
what you are going to say to your next partner. You see I'm getting sort
of tired, not being used to so much entertaining. That last girl that was
here, I asked to talk on artificial diamonds. You know that's my hobby.
Well, I guess she didn't understand, or something, for she began to talk
about the glass factory over at Pondersfield, and I couldn't get her stopped
nohow. She just went on and on like a machine." After this he said no
more and both kept perfectly quiet, which suited Helen very well.
Inside, Mollie was telling how well she entertained Uncle Henry. "He
asked me to talk about artificial diamonds, but as I didn't know anything
about them, I quickly changed the subject without him ever knowing it,
and told all about the glass factory. He was so thrilled and interested
that he couldn't think of anything to say at all."
When they had all finally gone the rounds and the reckoning came, it
was found that the Graham girls had the highest number of votes, and
they both had the same amount. They had agreed to draw cuts to see
which was the best conversationalist, when Doris suddenly remembered that
Uncle Henry hadn't voted.
Just then he came in and said in his very blunt way, "I vote for the
little Graham girl, that one with brown hair, not that one that chatters so
and is a regular chatterbox. Now, for my part, I think that one little girl
is about the best conversationalist that I ever met."
After Helen had received her prize, which was a small book containing
quotations, and was idly fingering the leaves, her glance fell on this quota-
tion, "Speech is silver, silence is golden." She smiled upon reading it, but
she sincerely felt she had gained a reward in being able to keep silent
where others had had to talk.

NCE upon a time there lived in a far away country two children by
the names of Frederick and Gettra. Their parents being dead,
they lived with their grandmother, who supported them by obtain-
ing work from a village ten miles distant.
Their home was a small cottage just at the edge of a dense forest.
The children were forbidden to enter this forest, but one day Frederick
said, "Gettra, as grandmother has gone to the village and we have nothing
to do, suppose we take a walk in the forrest." At first Gettra was some-
what reluctant, but, after a little persuasion from Frederick, she consented,
and hand in hand the two children entered the forest.
They had gone quite a way beneath the shady giants of the forest,
when they suddenly came to an opening in which stood an old man, mak-
ing statues from clay contained in a large kettle. At first the children were
a trifle afraid of him and were half inclined to run away, especially as his
back was toward them and he had not yet seen or heard them. Presently
Frederick said to Gettra in a studiously courageous tone, "I am not afraid
of him, I am going to ask his name." So, stepping boldly up to the old
man, he asked in a voice that trembled a little in spite of his knightly res-
olution: "Mister, will you please tell us your name?" The old man
turned and the children were more frightened than ever, for his long beard
which nearly swept the ground, and his great shaggy eyebrows, made him
look very fierce, but they saw that his eyes had a kind expression in them,
for all that, as he answered slowly, "My name P-my name? why, I sup-
posed everyone knew my name. I am Father Time. That is my Scythe
that hangs on yonder tree." And the children, looking where he pointed
with his long, bony finger, saw the wonderful scythe that mows down days,
years, griefs and hopes. It had a long blade, which was very sharp, and
the handle was very long and must have been very heavy.
After they had examined the scythe sutiiciently they again turned to
the old man and asked what he was making. "These," he said, "are
the seasons. I have just enough clay in that kettle to make them." All
the time he was talking he was busily shaping an arm for Spring, and as
turned to put it in its place, Frederick took a handful of the clay, and with
a hasty good-bye, the children started for home.
A few days after this, a Fairy came to them and told them that Father
Time lacked just that handful of clay to finish the seasons. And that just
before the opening, each season would come and demand the clay that be-
longed to it, tell them a story and give them a present. About this time
their grandmother died, leaving the children alone. 0

It was the last night of February, and the children were sitting near
the fire with the lump of clay between them on the floor. The door softly
opened and in tripped the most beautiful maiden the children had ever
seen. She had long, tlaxen curls, and her light blue eyes lighted up a
guileless, laughing face. As she came in, she demanded part of the lump
of clay that should make her nose and complete her beauty. The children
gave it to her readily and she quickly shaped it and put it in its place.
The children saw that her beauty was complete. She sat down and talked
with them a few minutes and then sprang up and, as she disappeared, a
burst of spring blossoms floated through the open door, filling the room
with their beauty and fragrance, and the cheery voice of Spring was wafted
back in the words, "Remember, children, I bring you golden opportuni-
ties, delicate flowers, smiles and tears."
Spring tied, and soon it was the night for Summers appearance. The
children were seated near the door, watching the sunset in purple and gold
behind the vine-clad hill, when they saw a tall, stately and very beautiful
lady coming toward them. She had soft brown eyes, and a manner that
was easy and gentle. She had beautiful june roses in her hair and twined
about her dress and was carelessly holding some in her hand. She came
forward and demanded the lump of clay that should make her little tin-
ger. And as she held up her hand, the children saw that the little linger
was missing, and quickly gave her part of the clay, which she shaped and
put in its place. She then sat down and told them a story, not unlike
Spring's, and when she was leaving she said, "Do not forget, children, I
bring you rich verdure, fiowery beauty and shady nooks."
Time fled and it was the last night of August. The children were
seated in the same place, only to-night they were watching the moon rise,
when a dark object which they knew to be Autumn, stepped out of the
wood and came quickly toward them. She also was beautiful, and as she
came nearer to them they saw that her dress was brown, trimmed with yel-
low, red and green. "I would like, if you please, the piece of clay that
should have made my ear," she said. And as she spoke, she lifted a lock
of her hair, and the children saw that one ear was gone, and they gave her
piece of clay to her. "Remember, I bring you bright, beautiful days, rosy
apples, luscious grapes, heaps of grain and stores for winter," she said, as
she vanished from sight, and at the same time a shower of leaves, red, yel-
low, green and brown came rustling down to the childrens' feet..
The children were seated near the fire on the last night of November,
looking ruefully at the last little piece of clay that lay between them on
the floor, when suddenly the door opened and in came the jolliest little old
man the children had ever seen. His hat was set jauntily on the top of
his head, and his eyes twinkled merrily as he said,"Well, children, I think

Hli Athenian Society has had a most prosperous year Linder the
guidance of Miss XYard. The programs have been more interesting
and instructive than ever before. The parliamentary drills, debates
and the different parts each one has taken, have served to give poise and
self-confidence to many who have so badly needed it. The close association
with one another, the social side of the Club, has proved very benelicial.
There is a good chance for development, as every one is obliged to take
part in the program, at least once a semester, and the training and exper-
ience gained is invaluable.

E have seen the work of the Lyceum improve wonderfully under the
new system and with the supervision of Miss Ward. More inter-
gl est has been shown in Lyceum this year than we have seen for
some time. It seems as though the Old spirit of Adrian High School was
really coming back again. We see our young men, the citizens of tO-
morrow, debating over the topics of the dayg and cannot help feeling that
a society of this kind is most essential in the training of our boys. The
Lyceum is certainly a credit to "Old Adrian High."

i HE Forum was organized last year for the purpose of making a
more thorough study of classical laws, customs, and modes of living
than the regular Latin course would permit. This year, owing to
many unavoidable interferences, the Forum gota later start than usual but
the work that was accomplished amply repaid the members for the time
they spent. There is plenty of good material left in the Forum and if it
gets an early start next year we expect to see it become one of the import-

HISTORY OF THE DRAMATIC CLUB
,L N the year 1913, the Dramatic Club was revived and enthusiastic
numbers made the year successful with Clair Hall as president.
The next year found the Club with the largest membership of
any of the school societies. Through the efforts of the presidents, Raymond
Lewis and Richard Larwill, over sixty dollars were secured toward the pur-
chases of a curtain for the stage of the auditorium. The curtain was pur-
chased in the fall of 1914. Raymond Lewis, as Chairman of the Commit-
tee, made the presentation.
Mildred Hart and Henry George Hoch were both efficient presidents
and their active interests were 'largely responsible for the progress made by
the Club during the year 1914-15. .
The prospects for the Club could not have been better than this year.
The Club had a good foundation, a good reputation and was the most pop-
ular organization in the school. Gerald Cutler, the last president, was
energetic in his efforts for the success of the Club. Miss Cora Palmer, of
the English Department, has been ever helpful, and too much praise can
not be given to Miss Ward for her untiring efforts. The Dramatic Club
has been the means of trying out students for the Senior Play. lt enables
a large number to display their talents, which otherwise might not have
been known. The Club disbanded in 1915. It is hoped that in the future,
a Dramatic Club may be again organized and prove itself to be a valuable
asset to our high school.

education we Owe many thanks. The Class Day program would
have been incomplete without the contributions of the Orchestra.
It has entertained us at class programs, recitals, mass meetings and many
other Occasions. A great deal of credit is due Mrs. Maud B. Newton, under
whose supervision the Orchestra has reached its present high state of

N the fall, several of the more prominent fellows of the Adrian High
School were asked to meet and have supper together at the "Y,"
' After supper Mr. Rau introduced Mr. j. A. Van Dis, who was the
state organizer of boys' clubs in the Y. M. C. A. At this time, it was
decided to organize a club composed of High School fellows and to meet
every week at the Y. M. C. A. for Bible study and discussion.
After two or three meetings it was decided to adopt the national
constitution of the Hi-Y Clubs.
The club this year was composed of twenty-five real workers. The
programs were helpful, educational and interesting. Several of the business
and professional men of the city have appeared on the programs.
Mr. Hypes, of the High School faculty, has had charge of the Bible
study and to him must go a great deal of credit for the interesting way in
which he conducted his part of the programs. The Bible study this year
was taught in such a way that every member was interested every minute.
The Hi-Y club has been a success this year and it is to be hoped that
it will be more of a success next year. The club offers social opportunities
to the fellows that no other High School club can offer. It is certainly to
be hoped that more fellows will take advantage of the Hi-Y Club next

ORATORY AND DECLAMATION
HE annual oratorical and declamation contest was held in the High
School auditorium on the evening of March 9. The alifair was one
K ts of unusual merit. The speakers in both contests were fitted in
every way to compete for the oratorical and declamation cups, which were
offered as usual. The High School orchestra offered its services for the
evening and after a selection, the declamation contest was held.
"The Philippine Question" . . RAYMOND KOEHN
"The Independence of Cuba" . . SETH HOISINGTON
"The Dawn of the Political Tomorrow" EULALIE GOURLEY
"Jeanne D'Arc" .... FLORENCE EARLY
"The Union Soldier" . . . GERALDINE JOHNSON
First place in this contest was won by Eulalie Gourley, who did re-
markably well in delivering "The Dawn of a Political Tomorrow." Florence
Early was a close second. '
The speakers in the oratorical contest numbered but three and all were
prepared on subjects of national interest. -
"The Hidden Foe" . . CHARLES SCHULTZ ASHLEY
"The True Germany" CLIFFORD ERVIN JACKSON
"The Paramount Issue" . . HARRY BEE PATREY
Harry Patrey, with an oration full of deep thought and with an excel-
lent delivery, easily won first place.
Charles Ashley picked out the delicate subject of the cigarette question
and boldly delivered a vociferous condemnation of the evil.
"The True Germany," a philippic against the German government,
was given for the purpose of "making the Kaiser feel bad," to use Mr.
jackson's own words. If the Kaiser had been in the audience to hear this
terrific arraignment, he surely would have sneaked out the back door.
The declamation cup, which was won by Miss Gourley, and the orator-
ical cup, which was won by Mr. Patrey, were presented by Mr Reed.
At the sub-district contest which was held at Hillsdale, both Miss
Gourley and Mr. Patrey won close seconds. Adrian High School is proud
to be represented by these people and our only regret is that Mr. Patrey
will leave Adrian High School this year. -

PLAY CAST OF CHARACTERS
THE SENIOR PLAY
HE fourteenth annual Senior Play was presented at the Croswell
Opera House on the evening of May 5th. "The Melting Pot" is a
2 drama in four acts, by Israel Zangwill, a play dealing with the great
immigration problem. A small sensation was created when the choice of
the play was announced in view of the facts that it was a drama, a modern
play, and called for a much smaller cast than usual. The experiment prov-
ed successful, however, and we, the class of 1916, are proud to be the first
to give a modern play. A large audience viewed the presentation and ex-
pressed only surprise and congratulation.
The story deals with a young jewish violinist, who found happiness
when America "stretched out its great motherhand" to him. Nearly every
nationality is represented in the characters who meet in America, God's
great Melting Pot. Gerald Cutler and Geraldine Greenwald were in the
leading parts, thoughrevery character was an important one. Several ex-
ceptionally good humorous characters relieved the tension of a serious play.
The scenes were all laid in New York. The fourth act was especially
pretty, a New York roof garden scene painted by Mr. Eldredge. We wish
to thank him for his splendid work.
As in other years, we give the credit of our success entirely to Miss
Ward. It would never have been attempted or continued if her enthusiasm
had not been reassuring when things began to "drag." We feel that we
have received some of her best work in that it is her last. With her de-
parture this year, she leaves a place that can never be filled.
john Fint was an able business manager and gave unsparingly of his
time. Much help was also given by Walter Roesch, the stage manager,
and the property men, Charles Ashley and Lawrence Bevins.
The cast and friends were the guests of Mr. Reed and Mr. Griffey at
Nachtrieb's following the performance. I
To the coming class we wish success and are sincere when we say that
we hope they may have "the best ever."

Director, was assisted by Miss Winifred Ward, Mr. Howell Taylor and
Miss Gretchen Seibert, also Mrs. F. M. Drake and Miss Mildred Soper, as

DRAMATIC CLUB BANQUET
ATURDAY evening, March 18th, the last gathering of the Dramatic
Club was held at the Presbyterian Church. After the sudden dis-
banding of the club, a considerable sum was left in the treasury
with which it was decided to banquet the former organization. A fine
dinner was served by the ladies at tables cleverly carrying out St. Patrick
ideas in their decoration. The dinner was followed by a splendid program
of toasts from former members, officers and the Alumni. Different views
of the situation werenshown, in some terming it a funeral, others an "Irish
Wake." Sincere wishes were expressed for the organization of a new club
in the future, and in every way the members showed that they were "good
At the completion of the program, Miss Ward was presented with a
gold wrist watch, as a small symbol of the appreciation of the members for
her help. Too much could not be said for her influence and assistance in
forming and carrying on the work of the club. Without her, the success
would have been an impossibility.
The following toasts formed an interesting program, their subjects be-
ing chosen from former plays presented by the club:

BDNIHSDAY May 11th the fifteenth annual Lyceum Banquet was

ing of the school year. the opinion seemed to be that the Lyceum
society was to sink into oblivion, owing to the call to meet after school.
But Miss Ward has shown her splendid ability and the Lyceum appeared
a very live factor at its annual banquet. Their colors, blue and yellow,
combined with the use of pennants, formed effective decorations. A large
crowd, composed of students and alumni, enjoyed the fine dinner and in-
teresting program of toasts:

and novel program of toasts, dancing was enjoyed in the gymnasium.
Here green and white, the junior colors, were used effectively. Large white
pillars and profuse decoration served to disguise the "Gym" into a scene
of beauty. Music was furnished by the High School orchestra during the
banquet, and also for the splendid dance program. Several new features
were introduced during the dance. ' ' '

South Hall was opened to the Seniors of Adrian High School on the
evening of May 9th, for the first commencement event. Here the class of
1916 was received by the Seniors and Faculty of Adrian College. Green-
ery was used in abundance about the rooms, forming effective decorations.
Willett's orchestra entertained with a fine musical program throughout the
evening. Light refreshments were served and a pleasant evening was en-
joyed by all.
On the evening of june 4th, Dr. Frederick Perry delivered the Bacca-
laureate sermon in the Methodist Protestant church. Mr. Perry always
has something good for us and we were especially glad to secure him for
this occasion. A large audience listened to a splendid, inspiring sermon.
We wish to extend our heartiest thanks and appreciation to Dr. Perry.
The annual Class Day program was given on the evening of June 7th,
at Croswell Opera House. The usual entertaining program was given by
the class, several new features being added. Following this was the pass-
ing of the Gavel to the Juniors. The class of 1917 should be congratulated
upon the artistic use of the Purple and White in decorating the Opera House.
The Commencement exercises of the Class of 1916 took placejune 9th,
at the Croswell Opera House. The speaker of the day was Mr. Fred L.
Keeler, State Superintendent of Public Instruction. An interesting address
was given before a large audience. Superintendent Griffey presented the
graduates with diplomas. Several fine musical numbers were furnished by
the High School Orchestra.

THE FOOT BALL TEAM
I8 semen sncm.a is '
HE 1915 Foot Ball season is one of the things in the high school
history that we do not care to talk about. The only game in which
K its the team came out victorious was the one with Dundee. In all
the other games, Adrian fought and played their best until the final whistle,
but lost. However, we can not call the season a total failure. There were
about thirty men out to practice every afternoon and out of this number
all but three or four will be back next year. Of the fifteen fellows to re-
ceive "A's", eleven, or one whole team, will be in high school next year.
This looks good for old Adrian High, and this team of veterans should win
every game next year.
There were no bright and shining "stars" on the team this year. No
one seemed to be far superior to any other man. Captain Ed. Isley played
hard every minute and in spite of his injuries was in the game most of the
time. Patterson, next year's captain, is one of the best and brainiest
quarter-backs that has been in the high school for several years. We are
confident that "Pat" will lead next year's team to many a victory.
Every one of the graduate men will be greatly missed by the coach.
Fint, who played left guard, had more fight and weight than any other man
on the line. Roesch, at tackle, could be found in every play that went his
way. Ashley was one of the best "smashing ends" that has ever been seen
in high school. The class of 1916 is proud to claim these three players,
but we are glad that we leave so many good men behind us. We wish you
the best of luck-and may you beat Monroe.

THE BASKET BALL TEAM

ACTING CAPTAIN---EDWARD ISLEY
HE A. H. S. Basket Ball Team has a better record than any team
for the past three years, havingwon six games and lost live. We
should and do feel proud of our team and the Coach. And, as
every man of this year's team will be back next year, we expect to see
them come through with a clean slate. All our victories this year were de-

When Coach Jones called for basket ball practice, two of the last
year's team reported and about fifteen others that looked about as
good. The first team candidates finally sifted down to ten, any five of
whom could have represented the high school. To make matters a little
easier for the coach, Kerr had scholastic difficulties and Robertson, the
captain, wrenched his knee.
It is hard to pick a "star" this year. The boys all played for the team
and not for themselves. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the season was
Darling. Halland is a brother of "Ed," the 1914 Captain, and, though the
youngster does not have the weight of the former captain, he "sure can hit
that basket," as jones would say. Youngs, the Captain elect, was another
find. Too much cannot be said of "Kid" Isley, who acted as Captain after
Robinson left. He is a fighter and a basket ball player from stem to stern.
Wade, Davis and Funk, all new men in school, proved valuable players:
Davis leading in the number of points scored.
The Coach and players all agree that a large amount of credit goes to
the strong second team. After all, that is what makes a team. A school
must be proud of its team and willing to support it both by attending the
games and giving it practice.
The whole high school is looking forward to next year. Every mem-
ber of the first and second teams will be back except one second team man,
and there are others in school who will give the first team men a run for
their places-if they do not Hunk.
This year's team also boasts of city championship which they won with-
out a defeat.

HE High School has one of the best Base Ball teams it has had in
years. Most of the team are experienced, having played last year.
The boys are not very heavy hitters, but are clever fielders and
base runners. When the SICKLE goes to press, we stand first in the
county league. We lost our first game to Hudson, because our bunch
failed to support Harrison after Dunn had put the game on ice. Since
this defeat we have won five straight games.
Captain Roesch is aball player with plenty of experience. He is a
good hitter, fielder and a whirlwind at stealing bases.
Funk, a new man, has played center field, short stop and is now play-
ing first. He seems to be right at home any place.
john Dunn and Hartley Harrison are a good pair of twirlers. In one
game Dunn struck out fifteen.
Patterson and Lutz at third and short are a good pair and cover that
section of the field in great shape.
The outfield is well guarded by Bond, Harris and Hamilton.
George is doing very well for a freshman, and will make a valuable
catcher in a year or so.

4 HE school seems to be gifted with more track men than any other
form of athletes. judging from the interclass track meet, held
E May 4th, we are going to make a strong bid for the County meet.
All events but two in the class meet were faster than last year.
The meet was won by the Sophomores with Raymond Koehn as the
biggest point getter. Another star of the meet was Carmen Smith, a
freshman. Paul Annis won the mile and half mile in splendid time.
Skinner seems to be the best weight man. Youngs, the star of last year's
contest, did not compete, but will probably be in the county meet.
The record of the interclass meet is as follows:
100 Yard Dash-Smith, Freshman, Koehn, Sophomore, Patterson,
junior. Time, 10 4-5 seconds.
Shot Put-Skinner, Sophomore, Ray Westfield, Freshman, Patterson,
junior. Distance, 31 ft. 7 in.

individuals, will have the honor of having our names placed on the roll call
of the Alumni of Adrian High School.
We are unable to print, in this Annual, all the graduates that have
gone from Adrian High School. As much as we would like to, we know
that the space in this Annual will not permit. A complete list of these
may be found in the "Manual" published by the Adrian Public Schools.
We have completed a list of the last three classes that have graduated,
with whom we have become acquainted during our high school course.

Leonard Morse and Carl Dean
Finally Grant Interview

TELL OF THEIR COMET-
LIKE RISE TO FAME
As a Result the Stock Market is
Expected to Gradually Assume
Une of the most sensational ln-
terviews ofthe year was obtained
today by a SOB reporter, and as
a result numberless rumors which
have been recently given a con-
siderable amount of credence,
are shown to be groundless. and
also a speedy return of the Stock
Market to normal conditions is
promised. This interview cou-
cerns nothing more or less than
the meteoric rise of Leonard
Morse and Carl Dean. the two
young entertainers who have
been making such a decided hit
at the Sleeping Cat Delicatessen
Cabaret during the past two
weeks. When asked to tell of the
experiences which led to the high
positions now held, Leonard
Morse, speaking also for his part-
ner, told the SOB reporter the
-'For some time before we came
under the public eye, Mr. Dean

of the girls Leither Marian Gus-

gested that we do a table dance.
After a considerable amount of
persuasion we decided to adopt
the suggestion and right there we
did the first of our famous "Table

girls. Judson is now held by the
police and is waiting trial on the
charge of criminal negligence.
It later developed that at the
time he was killed. Schlegelmeler
was engagedin an argument with
Clifford Jackson about the Kaiser.
Jackson says they left the side-
walk for the street where there
was more room so they could ex-
press their points more forcibly.
They had argued a long time but
nothing had been settled at the
time of the accident. Jackson
says lt serves Schlegelmeier rlght
because he lJackson3 absolutely
could not persuade Schlegelmeier
that the Kaiser is the biggest
crook on earth.

this awful situation.
always remember that we are
ready at all times to do all we can
for unfortunate girls who have
been invelgled in such cases as
you have been. The very idea of
your fiance attempting to klss you
on the neck! It ls brutlsh! Mere-
ly for his own good he should re.
member the oft quoted lines from
Chaucer, "A kiss on the lips ls
worth two on the neck!" But I
will not elaborate longer. Simply
tell hlm he ls the lowest, meanest
shrimp on earth and then work
I intend to entertain my sister
at a lawn fete on the evening of
Friday, June 23. who will be visit-
ing from Ohlo. How about a
shower at that time
I would suggest that lt would be
very necessary just beforehand.
because the date is ln a hot sum-
mer month when one perspires to
agreat extent and one would wish
one's personal appearance to be
at its best ln the presence of one's
sister. The High School will be
closed at that time but the SOB
recommends that you try the Y.
M. C. A.. as its showers are ln
commission the year around.
Will you please tell me a good
way to transfer the seeds of an
orange from the mouth in a way
that will not annoy polite society?
Sure, Grace, glad to do lt. This
is one of the problems I have
studied on a long time and now l
think I have a satisfactory an-
swer. Gently place any nearby
pea shooter to your lips. Then
blow the seeds through any con-
venient wlndow or at any person
at the table whom you don't like
or who has been making himself
particularly disagreeable during
the dinner. By doing this you
will demonstrate to the host and
other guests your good breeding
and your keen sense of humor,
and they will also remark about
your wonderfully accurate gun-

K, HE time draws near when the Class of 1916 must
T Q leave Adrian High and at this time we wish to
thank the advertisers who have so liberally contrib-
i Wi uted to make this SICKLE possible. We fully realize
l 4 ili 'A W that the SICKLE, as an advertising medium. does not
out-rank all others. The business menare almost daily asked
to contribute something to this cause or to that. However, they
have received us cordially, as they have those who came before
us and, as we hope, those who will come after us.
We hope that in the future when the business men are asked
to patronize the SICKLE they will remember that it stands for
THEIR High School, which we try to make a credit to THEIR
Above all other things we ask that if you End something
that is not to your liking, to pass it over and remember we have
put out only one SICKLE.
To the associate editors a great deal of credit is due for the
writings that appear herein. For the fine drawings that appear,
our art editor must be thanked.
To Mr. Finch we owe the masterly way in which this book
is arranged, printed and bound.
To Miss Fox and Miss Rhodes we are indebted for their
help in typing.
We hope that those who have helped make this SICKLE what
it is, will accept this as our thanks to them.

covering the exact nature of your disease and
2. Because Chiropractic will remove the
cause of your disease and thereby give per-
3. Because it accomplishes more than all
other methods and leaves no ill after effect.
4. Because Chiropractic is the greatest fac-
tor in the scientific prevention of disease.
5. Because the foremost physicians are rec
ognizing the value of Chiropractic.
6. Because the Chiropractor is successful
at the bedside in acute and chronic diseases.
7. Because Adjustments remove all obstruc-
tions in the nervous system and thereby restore
perfect function and normal strength to the
S. Because the Adjustments as we give
them are not painful and are followed by
prompt relief in acute cases.
9. Because Chiropractic has restored to nor-
mal health many cases pronounced incurable
by the best physicians.
IO. Because what Chiropractic has done and
is doing for others it will do for you.
