All of us who have had work under her in the past wish her the best of success in her new position. Mrs. Newton leaves many friends in Adrian who will always appreciate the good work done by her in the public schools. Miss Lucy Comfort lt is with great regret that we have to an- nounce the resignation of Miss Lucy Comfort from the Domestic Science department of our school. XYe are glad however that she will have the opportunity next year of attending folumbia University, America's greatest training school for te-achers. Miss Comfort leaves a host of friends in Adrian who wish her well. Mr. Allen Vogt Although Mr. Vogt has been our Commercial teacher for but one year, he has decided to leave and go to a new field. We wish him every success possible in his new work. 2 THE SICKLE BGARD TI-IE SICKLE BOARD . BOARD OF EDUCATION MR. W. H. BURNHAM ....... ......,.....,.... P resident MR. E. N.

Undergraduate Editor Editor Editor Editor Editor Editor Editor Editor EDITORIAL S THIS twenty-third volume of the Senior Sickle goes to press. we anxiously await your verdict as to its worth. We have tried in this Annual to depict life in Adrian High School as it truly is. If we have succeeded in this point we feel that our work has been a success. Because of the enforced vacations due to the influenza epidemic, our school year was cut chort. This not only set back our school work but impeded progress on the Sickle. Consequently several good ideas had to be given up for lack of time. VVe wish to thank all who have in any way helped to make this book what it is, and ask and hope that you will not be too critical towards our efforts. The most glaring fault noted in aspirants to the Officers Reserve Corps during the late war, is one that might very well be prevented by proper attention in the High Schools. It can be summed up by the term 'fSlouch- inessf' This refers to what might be called a mental and physical indiffer- ence. In military schools this slackness in thought, presentation, and bearing is not tolerated, because the aim of all military training is accuracy. Great numbers of men have failed in camp and in life through the inability to articulate well. Even without prescribed training in elocution, a great improvement could be brought about by the instructors of our schools insisting that all answers to questions should be given in a large, clear, well- rounded voice. In addition to this physical disability is what might be called slouchiness of mental attitude. Too many schools are satisfied with an approximate answer to a question and insistence upon decision of thought and expression is too often lost sight of. Instructors could do much good by insisting upon complete sentences and direct statements. One more important element seems to be lacking in the mental make-up of many of our students, that element is grit. Not that they would prove cowardly in battle, but they too often leave studies undone because they are difficult or even leave school because of some rebuke or criticism. This idea of grit belongs to the school room as well as to the outside life. OFFICERS OF THE SENIOR CLASS DURING THE VARIOUS YEARS President .... Vice-Prcsiclcnt Secretary. . . . Treasurer. . . .

Doris is Art Editor of this annual and her success is proven by its hne artistic designs. She can also make the ivories tinkle merrily. Doris Abbott Alverson ' lWVinner of Oratorical Contest 131, Senior Play 131, Athenian 111 121, Thespian 121 131, Secretary Thespian 131. One of our "Darling" twins, the one that always "accompanies" her sister, on the piano as well as on the street. Dorcas Seager Alverson Orchestra 111 121, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, Junior Red Cross. This is the other "Darling" twin. We were never quite sure which one she was but we think she is the one that plays the violin. Thelma Belle Ayres Entered in junior year from jasper Hi. Treasurer of Agriculture Club. Patriotic League, Junior Red Cross, Athletic Association. From her name you might think that she puts on airs 1Ayres1, but this is absolutely not true and she is to be complimented for it. THE GRADUATES Siplmra Diana Bachrach Athenian CU C25 K3D, Thespian CD, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross, Athletic Association. Honk! Honk! Here comes the Studebaker! This is our jovial member from the west end, and one to be reckoned with. Boys, watch out! 1 Fannie Opal Baldwin "S1nilcs," "DimpIes" Athletic Association, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross. Having made a thorough study of this fruit, CBaldwinD, We submit this description to the public: Round face, rosy cheeks, good heart, and never sour. Alice W. Baldwin i Entered in Senior Year from San Antonio, Texas. Although Alice left us for a year and a half, she returned in her Senior year as full of life as ever. We may say of her, "Convince a Woman against her will, and she's of the same opinion still." Lucile M. Ballenberger Thespian CZD, Junior Red Cross, Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Here is one of the most popular girls in our class. She is a fine student, especially good in French, for she can talk it so fast that the rest of uslare left in the shadow. THE GRAD ATES Alice E. Barber Entered in Junior year from Cadmus Hi. Patriotic League, junior Red Cross, Athletic Association. One of our Cadmus friends, who are steadily in- creasing and proving their worth each year, if not in words, in actions. lVe wish you every success, Alice, hut please don't he so timid. F erne Beebe "Fernie Babeew Girls' Debating Team 131, Athenian C23 Q33 Thespian C3j, Junior Red Cross, Patriotic League, Athletic Association, Athenian Program Committee. lf Fern always does everything as quickly and thoroughly as she does talking, we shall never fear but that, in later years, while we are yet reaching for the moon, she'lI be there. A Clair Bird "Birdie," 'S Turkey" Football CD C21 135, Basket Ball C3J, Treasurer of Lyceum C3j, Athletic Association, Patriotic League. llere is our most famous football star, whom we are told plays the game with his head. Birdie and his grin are constant companions. It is an open secret that l'Turkey" likes to go to Monroe, not to play foot- ball either. Izola Mae Bosinger Athenian CID QD CSD, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross. ln school one would think Izola was always in earnest, but outside of school she is among the most jolly. XVe wish her great success in her future career, but remember, don't be too cross to a teacher. S TI-IE GRADU TES Elsie Evelina Bradish "Sandy" Athletic Association, Patriotic League, Junior Red Cross. Here is "Sandy" Bradish 1short "a" pleasej. She isa good artist and we suspect that she paints, but-Oh! La! La! Celia M. Brainerd Vice-President Athletic Association 125, Chairman of Patriotic League 13D, Secretary of Athenian 125, VVinner of Declamation Contest 115, Society Editor of Sickle, Imperatrix of Forum 131, Oratorieal Contest 131, Committees-Literary 11j, Entertainment, Senior Send- off 129, Class Ring and Pin,12D, Thespian Program 133. You are now looking at perhaps the most accom- plished girl in the Senior class. Celia is always leading in public speaking, starring in plays, shining in social activities, and occasional fooling a teacher or two. Marguerite Lucille Bragg Athenian, Girls' Glee Club, Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Entered in Junior Year from Onstead High. She is not a bit "Braggy" but is an all-round good girl. VVe register our approval of Marguerite. Alta Alzora Brewer Entered in junior Year from jasper Hi. Secretary of Agriculture Club, Red Cross, Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Although we have had her only two years, she has shown ability. We honor her as being the first girl to answer the call of her country to the working reserve. THE GRADUATES Lucille Brunt Patriotic' League, junior Red Cross, Athletic Asso- ciation. Lucille is always seen with Fern. They are one and inseparable. Lucille is never seen sober, yet she knows how to work and we are sure she will make good in the business world. Mary-Edith Chase MDM" Basket Ball QID CZZD C3D, Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Gaze at one of our small members, otherwise known as "Doc," Yet they say the best things come in small packages. "Doc" is independent enough to always say exactly what she means. They say she is a shark in French and we believe it. Ruth A. Chase Athenian, Thespian, Patriotic League. No, Ruth is not Edith's sister. Of course she likes Geometry as do all our Senior girls, but we imagine there are other things she likes better. Elizabeth E. Church Athenian CID CZD C3D, Secretary Athenian CSD, Thespian CQD C3D, Treasurer Athenian CZD, Glee Club CID C2D CSD, Athletic Association, Joke Editor of Sickle. Here is a girl who goes at things on a big scale. If she can not have the best, and incidentally, the largest thing going, she goes without. However, it is not often she goes without ji. Tl-IE GRADUATES Oscar L. Daniels Lyceum C21 Q3j, Lyceum Program Committee CID, Forum C3j, Forum Program Committee C3D, Athletic Association. Oscar reminds us of a popular character in litera- ture, lchabod Crane, by the fact that he is bashful, and needless to say, tall and slim. Nevertheless, he is a good scholar, and he shines most in Geometry and Physics. Rubey Esther Davis Patriotic League, Athletic Association, Junior Red Cross. A decidedly independent girl, and a great lover of Cleometry??? We also note her spunk. Janice Arlone Des Ermia Athenian CCD, 'lihespian QLD, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, Junior Red Cross. Entered from Unstead in Senior Year. Although Arlone has been with us but one year, she has won many friends. Wie feel sure she will never be lost as long as she is so carefully guided by her good t'Shepherd." Howard Driggs Patriotic League, Athletic Association. If you want to know the exact relation between a Holstein cow and a bottle of milk, ask Howard. He knows. THE GRADU TES Agnes D. Droegemueller Thespian C3D, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, Junior Red Cross. Did you ever hear a real giggle? VVell you ought to hear Agnes when she is pleased. Giggling is not Agnes' only accomplishment, however, for she is as quick as a wink in her studies. Eunice A. Ehinger Entered in Junior Year from Palmyra. junior Red Cross, Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Eunice is ranked among our tall classmates, but she does not use her height to act high and mighty. Some people may think her reserved and bashful, but once get acquainted and you are sure of having an all-round good friend. Noreena Engel Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Noreena for some reason has an attraction for the Great Lakes. We suspect-Cbut we must not even allude to our suspicions!j Anyway, we hope he does not fall overboard. Nathan Omega Fairchild Lyceum Q25 CISJ, Patriotic League, Associate Editor of Sickle. Behold our illustrious Geometry shark. When he turns his brain loose on a theorem, it is as good as solved. During the last year Omega has been a firm advocate of better roads to the south. A THE GRADUATES Vanyce Furman "Van" Athenian C11 CSD, Forum CZD, Thespian Q3j, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, Finance and Decoration Committees of Senior Send-off. Vanyce's interest is not centered about old A. H. S. when it comes to UDoc" S. Our classmate has a most favorable outlook for a dive into the sea of matrimony. Seriously though, Vanyce has made an enviable record in her High School work. Floyde George "Cap" Baseball and Class Baseball Clj C25 CSJ, Football Q21 C3J, Class Football CD C25 CSD, Track 125, Class Track QD C2j,Q3D, President Athletic Association Q3j, H. S. Cadets First Lieutenant 125, Captain CED, Lyceum Q11 Q21 CSJ, Thespian Gil. VVe must speak for the fact that Adrian High is rightfully proud of her splendid Cadet officers. How- ever, because of your giantlike proportions, beware of breaking little girls' hearts. Floyd F. Gibbs Patriotic League, Athletic Association, junior Red Cross, Director of City War Gardens C3J. Floyd is a fellow who does very little talking and contrary to the general rule, never looks at a girl. Robert Wynn Gibson "Doc," "Gibbie', Football Q21 C3j, Basket Ball Q3j, Athletic Associa- tion, Lyceum CU C21 CLD, President of Thespian C3D, Lieutenant in A. H. S. Cadets CSD, Decorating Com- mittee of Senior Send-off, Assistant Business Manager of Sickle, Patriotic League, Class Athletics CD C25 C3D. "Robert" has been called many times for holding. We know it's for sport and that it's "all in the game," but don't you make any discrimination? Be that as it may, we certainly have to hand it to you when it comes to foot-ball. THE GRADUATES Carmen Lucile Gobba Vice-President of Agriculture Club, Athenian CU C23 Clip, Patriotic League, Girls' Glee Club C3J, junior Red Cross, Athletic Association. Carmen has many good qualities and one of the best is her musical talent. If she is as willing to help in the future as she has been to play in the past, we are sure she will find success. Lawrence Gould "Jack" Lyceum Clj C25 C3J, Thespian C21 C3D, Class Basket and Base Ball CID C2j, Class Football C13 C25 C3j, Basket Ball Reserves C2D, Football C3J, Stage Manager Lyceum Ministrel C3J, Treasurer of Class C3D, Boys' Working Reserve C2J. t'My only books Are woman's looks, And folly's all they've taught me." jack never did care much for his books, as for woman's looks we bid you be careful, they sometimes prove fatal. Kenneth E. Graham KKKERN President of Lyceum C3j, President of Thespian C3D, Chairman High School Debating Team CSD, Winner of Oratorical Contest C2j, Lyceum CID C25 C3D, Thespian C2D C3J, Decorating Committee Senior Send-OH, Member of Military Advisory Board C3D, H. S. Cadets. "I know not how others saw him but to me he he was wholly fair." And this from a prominent Adrian "Barbed" Victor F. Cruel "Vic" Class Athletics CU CZD C3D, Base-ball C25 C3D, Basket Ball CZJ C3Q, Foot Ball C21 C3D, Class Secretary C3l, President Lyceum CID, Patriotic League, Athletic Edi- tor of Sickle. "Vic" is certainly a live wire. He is one of our Basket Ball stars and can surely put some "kick" into the Foot Ball game. XYe don't know his fixture occupa- tion but we think he may decide to be a jeweler. THE GRADUATES Helen E. Hall Debating Team C3j, Secretary of Thespian Q3D, Thespian CZD ISSJ, Decorating Committee Senior Send- off CZD, Athenian CU 135, Forum CZD Clij, Athletic Association, Chairman Athenian Music Committee CZQ. Here is our beaming Virgil student! Vl'e are told your name means Light. ls that where you get your beam? Or is it Alter Ego? lilainly speaking, how do you do it? Melva C. Hammel l'reliminary Declamation Contest CID, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, Athenian C29 QSJ, Captain A. H. S. Girls' Basket Ball Team '19, Captain Class Basket Ball CSD, Thesliian CBJ, junicr Red Cross. ' llvflulfl that there were more girls like you Melva You can certainly "Rough 'em up" in basket hall, and are always ready to lend a hand in your work. 1 Helen M. Heriig Class Vice-President CD, Athletic Association, Patriotic League. "Shy and retiring though she seems, If you knew her as well as we do, You'd know of whom she sometimes dreams And wish that you were He too." hVhenever you want something done let Helen do it, she will do it well. A few more of this kind would do the class good. Ray Hensey Athletic Association, Patrioticleague, junior Red Cross. . lfVell versed in the art of flirtation, and capable of the mental application of said art. We have noticed Ray is partial to her l-lifghjnes Blanche. THE GRADUATES Venus Vivian Hillarcl Athenian C25 C3J, junior Red Cross, Athletic Association, Patriotic League. . Venus is always ready to do what you ask of her. If you go into an ofhce some day and hear a typewriter going at double-time, you will know that Venus is not far off. Ruth Eloise Hood Athenian, junior Red Crcss, Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Ruth has accomplished a task that has hitherto been unheard-of for woman, namely, that of holding her tongue. The least said ahout it the hetter, Ruth. Ashland S. Hunt Lyceum Ciij, Patriotic League, Athletic Associa- tion, Lyceum Program Committee CFD. " Ashland hails from Rome Center. He knows more about progressive farming in a minute than the rest of us know in an hour. . - Harold W. Jackman Class Treasurer C2j, Editor-in-chief of Sickle, I4 v 3 L V - J yceum C J, yceum lrogranl Committee CID, Orches- tra C3j, H. S. Cadets CZD. Jackman is the really and truly good student among the fellows of the Senior Class. He makes a business of getting his lessons just the same as the most of us make a business of getting out of them. But' all joking aside, Harold, as Editor of this annual, has worked untiringly for it's success. Tl-IE GRADUATES Jeannette A. Jones Athenian QU CQJ C3j, Basket Ball CZJ, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross, Athletic Association. Jeanette is one of our out-of-town schoolmates who has a great liking for the open air and the woods QForrestD, we understand. Not so loud-and-slower, Cloaudenslargerj Miss jones, please. Marian King Lyceum CSJ, Patriotic League, Athletic Associa- tion. "Speak when you are spoken to," is lVlarion's motto. You are industrious, Marion, and you'll get there. Don't worry. Felicia Marie Kishpaugh President Athenian CSD, Treasurer Athenian CZD, Legata pro Imperatore, Forum C25 C3j, Vice-President Class C2j, Vice-President Patriotic League K3D, Com- mittees-Athenian Program 123, Senior Send-off Pro- gram QZD, Class Day Decorating CQD, Girls' Basket Ball Clj C25 CSD, VVinner of HA" in Physical Efficiency Test CZQ, Girls' Glee Club, Athenian CD C21 CSD, Saluta- torian. Behold an all around jolly girl and renowned Virgil shark. No company is quite complete without Felicia's wit and humor. Kenneth Kuney Athletic Association, Patriotic League, Junior Red Cross, H. S. Cadets. Along with outside attractions and junior girls, Kenneth has not had much time for school work. NVe have heard he hasnearly won the honor of being a speed king besides. THE GRADUATES La Von B. Kuney Program Committee Lyceum, Thespian 132, ll. S. Cadets, Patriotic League, Athletic Association. "VVitty. That's me all over Mable." Sad to say however, the teachers do not seem to properly appre- ciate his jokes, Kuney will mark a make in the world if he only settles down and takes life more seriously. Lenn L. Latham President Agricultural .Association QU, Orchestra CU, Athletic Association, Lyceum CID, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross. Entered A. H. S. from Pleasant Hill, Ohio. This boy has certainly worked since he entered High School. XYe credit him as being the only boy in the class to graduate in two and one half years. Forest D. Laudenslager "Lundy" Secretary Class QZD, Secretary Lyceum f3j, State Debating Team CCD, Thespian C3j, Lyceum CID, Athletic Association, Class Foot-Ball CD CZD, Class Track and Base Ball CQJ, Patriotic League. "Laudy," we hear that you like Miss jones. Of course we do not know which one, for there are so many in the world. Nevertheless, everyone in A. H. S. will have to admit that you are a mighty good fellow. Nuf sed. Werner H. Lewis "Lewie" Lyceum C33 Thespian CSD, H. S. Cadets CZJ CSD, junior Red Cross, Patriotic League, Class Foot Ball CD CZD, Class Base Ball C15 QZJ, High School Debating Team 131. lt's "Stark" madness to say that "Lewie" is not an all around good fellow, and one who knows how to store up gray matter. THE GRADUATES Gladys Marie Lincoln Athletic Association, Patriotic League. . Gladys is another strict advocate of the law of silence. VVQ appreciate her loyalty, but wish she had taken a greater part in school activities. Catherine Lillian McDowell Athletic Association, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross. ' Catherine possesses a very versatile disposition. She can run a typewriter, a Ford, or a farm, all with equal success. Reo Middleton Class of 1920. Marguerite E. Morse Patriotic League, junior Red Cross, Athletic Association. ' Marguerite views the world from lofty heights. Nevertheless she is an earnest Worker and we are sure she is capable of making a success. THE GRADUATES Ruth Eleanor Morse Scriptor of Forum 131, Secretary of Red Cross 131 Thespian 131, Athenian 111 121 131, Patriotic League, Chairman of Decorating Committee for Graduation 121, Wfinner of AHA" in Physical Efficiency Test 121, Basket Ball 111 121 131, Captain Class Basket Hall 121, Associate Editor of Sickle 131, She is little but she is not afraid to stand up for what she believes is right. We have often wondered though how you can manipulate your tongue so fast, But never mind, you are a fine student, Ruth. John S. Moxon Foot Ball Reserves 131, Lyceum 111 121 131, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross, Class Base Hall 111 121, Class Foot Ball 121, Athletic Association. John has a great ability to be everywhere at once. He has often been compared to a "ship without a sail," which tlounders about not knowing where it will strike, but we are sure if he would strike with the best of his ability he would accomplish much. Marian F. Nash Athenian 131, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross. Although Marian has been with us for three years, we do not feel very well acquainted with her. However, she is a loyal supporter of her class and has ability. Lillian Louise Naylor Athletic Association, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross, Thespian 131, Girls' Cllee Club 121. XVhat can we say about these quiet, unassuming girls? Nothing but about their good qualities. Lillian is a good student and a rival of the best in quick short- hand translation. ' " v THE GRADUATES Minetta E. B. Nicolai Forum CZD CZSJ, Athletic Association, Athenian C3Q, Thespian Ciij, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross, Valedictorian. Behold: our mathematical heroine and Virgil prodigy. Xie will all take off our hats to Minetta. VVe think you have a good start toward success.

Our "Major" has a very long list of honors attached to him which he has acquired during his sojourn through the dense forest of learning. We are indebted to him for successfully launching us in our career and will always remember him as the best and most capable of our number. Leslie D. Ougheltree "Les" Top Sergeant A. H. S. Cadets, Base Ball Manager C3J, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross. Leslie was so quiet that we did not get very well acquainted with him until this year. "Les" is one of A. H. S.'s most "peppy" fellows and like most people, has a hobby, which in his case is gasoline motors. Lola Wave Patterson Patriotic League, Athletic Association. Lola has not been very active scoially since she entered High School, but she has done her work and we have no fault to find with her. THE GRADUATES Oscar Baker Peavey Foot Ball CID C2D C3D, Captain Class Foot Ball CID, Acting Captain Foot Ball C3D, Captain A. H. S. Cadets C2D C3D, Class Basket Ball CID C2D C3D, Class Track CID C2D, Class Base Ball CID, Lyceum CID C2D C3D, Thespian C2D CISD, Athletic Association, Second Team Basket Ball C2D C3D, Class President C3D, Patriotic League C2D C3D, President junior Red Cross C2D, Boys' Working Reserve CID C2D. Adrian High's Star tackle in school as well as foot ball, for he tackles everything that comes his way. There is a common saying around school that if you want to know where Oscar is, ask Celia. Reuben Wallace Power "Rube" Lyceum CID C2D, Class Base Ball CID C2D, Class Basket Ball C2D, Athletic Association, Patriotic League, junior Red Cross. Hail to our little Gym teacher. Rueben is so brilliant in French that he is even invited to attend the teachers' banquets. L. Helen Rankin "Sluts" Vice-President Class CSD, Vice-President Athletic Association C3D, Treasurer Athenian C3D, Class Repre- sentative Patriotic League C2D C3D, Debating Team C3D, Athenian Program Committee C3D, Athenian CID C2D C3D Thespian C2D CSD, Girls' Basket Ball CID, Junior Red Cross. We know that you appreciate in full your fitting appellation, CSlatsD.

J Q J I I l I A significance than any other of the three hundred sixty-five days that go to make up the cycle of the yearg but to us, the members of the class of nineteen hundred nineteen, it is a day set apart from all the others as a day of rejoicing and thanksgiving, VVe are glad to know that our three years of arduous toil is over, glad to know that we have accomplished the ptlrpose for which we entered the Senior High School. Wie are glad to have' you meet with us and to enjoy the festivities, which mark the close of our career as a class. Vlle wish also to express ourrthanks to all those who have contributed in any way, either by guidance, by counsel or by material support or watch- ful care, to make our school life pleasant and successful. Up to the present time we have been following a well defined course, our tasks have been assigned us with some regard to our ability to perform. Uur work has been mapped out for us, the way has been plainly indicated. llc have not been called upon to assume great responsibilities, nor have we been held largely accountable for our failures. Many times excuses have been accepted for a non-performance of duty by those who took into consideration our motives as well as our acts. Tonight we have reached the fork of the road. Vllhichever turn we take, we must act on our own initiative. The world will censure us for our mistakes, and will judge us according to its own standards. lt will be slow to pardon our shortcomings, it will accept no excuses for failure to function. ln other words, we are henceforth masters of our own destinies. And now as we greet you and welcome you to our Class Day Exercises, we ask you kindly to remember that we are a class with high ideals, but that we are, as yet, inexperienced and untried in the world's work, and we ask you to bear patiently with us, until we can adapt ourselves to the new road and assumeqrour new responsibilities. Further than that, we crave no indulgence. Once more we bid you welcome and hope you will enjoy the program we have prepared to celebrate this, to us, all important day. ENl R EIEKLE PAST AND PRESENT THE THE PAST B AM the Spirit of the Past and sad memory brings the Visions of other days around me. "Ott, in the stilly night, Iire Slumber's chain hath bound me, Fond Memory brings the light Of other days around meg The smiles, the tears Of boyhood's years, The words of love then spoken: The eyes that shone, Now dimmed and gone, The cheerful hearts now broken! Thus, in the stilly night, Ere Slumber's chain hath bound me. Sad Memory brings the light Of other days around me. IYhen I remember all The friends so linked together, I'x'e seen around me fall, Like leayes in wintry weather I feel like one XVho treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Vl'hose lights are fled, Whose garlands dead, And all but he departed! Thus, in the stilly night, ' Ere Slumber's chain hath bound me. Sad Memory brings the light Ut other days around me." So sang the Poet long years ago, but all the memories which come to me to-night, "Ere Slumber's chain hath bound me," are not sad memories. As I look back from the Closing year of the twentieth century, I see in a Vision the class of 1919, as it struggled to reach its ideals. It was the first class to graduate from the Junior High School and celebrated its first com- mencement by presenting as a class play, HMiehigan, My IN'Iichigan." The class had a hard time to preserve its colors but in spite of all dithculties ENI R IIIKLE won honors both in scholarship and athletics. During their Senior year in Junior Hi they were under the able quardianship of Carmen Smith assisted by Celia Brainerd, Alice Baldwin and Oscar Peavey. Many were the trials of the last year but each was met and dealt with wisely. Time drifts on and I see the class in their next struggles as they take their place in the Senior High School and assume the dreaded name of Freshman. The class leaders for 1916-17 were Lawrence Osgood, Helen Henig, Floyd George and VVarren Snedeker. This year one of the number Miss Clelia Brainerd, gained honor for the class by winning the declamatory contest. Each year the class added new activities and this year they added what was known as the Class Athletic Association. The Association was organized for the purpose of awarding the foot-ball boys with 19l9's, made of the class colors, red and white. This showed the orginality of the class as it was the first class to have anything of the kind. I remember that this class always did do things entirely different, but were always loyal to the blue and white of Adrian High School. 1 see another epoch in the life of this class known as the Junior year. This year came the great war and the class bravely got behind the war work and boosted. Oscar Peavey was made President of the Junior Red Cross and the girls of this class were particularly active in this work. The junior Patriotic League also received our hearty support. This year thc class was guided by Clarles Moreland, Felicia Kishpaugh, Forrest Laudenslager and Harold Jackman. The Senior Send OH given by this class to the class of 1918 was most clever and unique. Kenneth Graham won renown for the class by gaining first place in the Oratorical contest. As the year drew to a close the class was intrusted with the Senior Gavel which they kept with all the dignity and authority which it conveys. 1 see the class as they attain the goal upon which they have set their hearts. This year they were under the able leadership of Oscar Peavey, Helen Rankin, Victor Gruel and Lawrence Gould. The class took up the many functions demanded by Seniors and dealt with them exceptionally well. The class never did excel in numbers and in this year their ranks were much depleted, but the saying "Quality not Quantity" applied to "1919." They made up in quality what they lacked in numbers. Again the class won fame in oratory as all the contestants were from the class of 1919. Miss Doris Alverson gained first place with Celia Brainerd a close second. Looking back 1 see that the class produced numerous basket ball players, in this year, both among the girls and the boys. 1 see the class in a vision from Seniors of the Junior High to Seniors in full. I see how they overcame each difficulty, fought and won and it is with deep regret that 1 close my eyes and see no longer the fond memories of the class of 1919. EN! R EIEKLE THE SPIRIT OF THE FUTURE RUTH IVIORSE I am the spirit of the future and I can tell you of the fates and fortunes of all. "For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see, Saw the vision of the world, and all the wonder that would beg Saw the heavens fill with commerce, argosies of magic sails, Pilots of the purple twilight, dropping down with costly bales, Heard the heavens fill with shouting, and there rained a ghastly dew From the nations airy navies grappling in the central blue, Far along the world-wide whisper of the south wind rushing warm, VVith the standards of the peoples plunging through the thunder-stormy Till the war drum throbb'd no longer, and the battle flags were furl'd In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world. There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe, And the kindly earth shall slumber, lapt in universal law." I look through a cloud and see Lawrence Osgood elected to the Senate, and noted there for his long speeches. I see Lenn Latham a famous violinist well known on two continents. The cloud slowly moves and I see Vanyce Furman making annual trips to Paris, bringing back the styles for the I-Iall and Rankin designing company. I see Edith Chase grown up and a compe- tent teacher of French. And there is Gladys Van Sickle gaining renown as a Physical Training Teacher in Chicago. The scene changes as the cloud drifts along and I see the future of Oscar Peavey and Celia Brainerd. They will marry but soon separate, because both are determined to run the affairs of the household. I also see that Doris Abbott and VVarren Snedeker marry and live in Detroit. Doris makes many friends because of her great powers of entertainment. Dorothy Skeels is an author, and one of her principal books is "How to Treat the Men." Behold! the cloud has again changed and I see Reuben Power traveling in Europe in the interests of the Y. M. C. A. Russell Raymond invents a new automobile and becomes a rival of Henry Ford. Clair Bird becomes a man of business and wins many customers with his cheery grin. Lucille Ballenberger and Alice Baldwin pose as talented Artists in the Old Country. Fern Beebe is a bookkeeper and stenographer for the firm of Ougheltree and Hensey. Lucille Brunt is an efficient sales lady for the firm of George and Driggs. 6 EN! R IEKLE The cloud thickens so that I can scarccly see, but I recognize Wynn Gibson as author of a famous book, 'fHow to Win the Most Fame by the Least VVork." Leslie Walker is a successful newspaper reporter. Felicia Kish- paugh writes newspaper articles and through them aids Lawrence Osgood in gaining the senatorship. The air is growing clearer and I see Ruth Hood and Merle Richardson, a happily married couple living in the city of Bird- sall. Merle competently fills the office of Mayor there. I see Victor Gruel become the head manager of Sheldon's Jewelry store. I see Omega Fair- child a very inliuential leader of the Republican Party. I see Forrest Laudenslager and Jeanette Jones Laudenslager married and living on a farm. Seward Shepherd plays the leading role in "Long Boy." Werner Lewis has become a public speaker and is noted for his short, snappy speeches. Again the scene changes and I see that Elizabeth Church an opera singer, has as a past-time, written a book entitled, "A Fat Man's Good Qualities." Dor- cas Alverson is a nurse and her twin Doris is known the world over as "Doris Alverson the Elocutionistf' Every one says she is a "Darling," Rubey Davis and Frances Snedeker have erected a home for stray cats in the city of Tecumseh. Harold Jackman has become a Professor of Mathe- matics and is very successful in his work. Now there seems to be a silver band around the cloud and many futures are reflected in it. Minetta Nicolai is a teacher of Latin in an Ohio Uni- versity and Kenneth Graham has become the head manager of a clothing store in Detroit. I see that Elsie Bradish has a millinery store in Clinton and her designs are very original. In the shining band I see Melva Hammel meeting with success in the clerical work. Slowly the cloud is drifting away, and nothing is left but space and I bid you farewell. "Farewell O Past so old and gray With the burdens of many ages, Freely I tell you of fortunes so gay, Recorded on my unseen pages." wa s ENI R IEKLE TI-IE GRADUATES CHOICE C'LAss DAY Pi.Avt.14:'r I-Ili playlet, l"l'he Graduates C'hoice," tells how Youth, a young girl graduate, is approached lmv the Yices and the Virtues, Pride, Humility, Sloth, Zeal, Deceit.

I EN! R 51i:KLE CLASS POEM ARLONE DESERMIA Good-by to our dear old school days, To our teachers, anld school-mates allg For we must part to mingle In the strife of the great world's call. Step by step from Freshman to Senior, Side by side have we striven indeed, To accomplish each daily task And perfect each word and deed. Three long years have we faithfully aimed Our banner to lift on highg And thus in the great school of life To exalt our standard we'll try. Times there were when it seemed in vain To try to learn lessons so long, But at length our tasks are all done, And we celebrate our victory with song Our hearts are saddened at parting To hear no more the old bell, To bid to each school-mate and teacher A fond and a lasting farewell. Our colors, the red and the white, We have chosen with care, 'tis trueg May we honor these colors of ours As we honor the Red, White and Blue. For in whatever State we may live, Whatever our lot or our station, We'll ever remember our teachings, To protect the flag of our nation. Thus hath education prepared us To fight with might and with main, To protect with our lives dear Liberty's cause And keep from our flag every stain. EN: R sn:KLE Then farewell to olcl Senior Hi From which we are loth to depart. We are glad to pledge our word, To take our lessons to heart. The shining paths we shall follow VVhile we climb life's rugged hill, Ever mindful of the days gone by As we strive every promise to fulfill. Now may God bless you all as we part Perehance with a sob or a sigh, Fond memories we'll cherish forever As time over his course cloth Hy. Our friendships forever shall stand To be loyal we ever shall tryg And oft we'll recall the days Spent in Dear Old Adrian Hi. ENI R III KLE VALEDICTORY NTINETTA NIco1.A1 IME rolls on with incredible speed. The months and years of our High School life have passed on into the ages, never to return. Though we have often waited impatiently for a short time to creep by, at last we realize the truth that time is all too short. Once passed it can be relived in memory only. Thus our High School days will often be lived over, and how much happiness they will recall! There was not happi- ness only, but many difficulties and discouraging problems arose threaten- ingly before us and called forth our hrm determination to overcome them. It was honest effort and real desire for success that won. But now we must think of the future, not the past. VVe must not go backward, but ever forward, into the work which now lies before us, into the struggles of life. VVhat has the High School clone for us? Wvhy are we better htted for life now than if we had not seized this great opportunity for success? The world will recognize us, will know from whence we came. It is as though the High School has given us a distinguishing mark to show our merits and worth, as the manufacturer places a trademark upon his products to proclaim their superior quality and to advertise them through- out the world. But what is this mark which is placed upon us? It is education and character-the education achieved by us through our efforts and the character which is developed in deriving the education. -lust as the name HRogers" indicates superior workmanship, quality, and endurance of silverware, so does education and character stand for sterling worth throughout the world. We are goods laid upon the market of the world. Do you wish to pur- chase? Step up closer, please, and examine the material. We all bear the stamp, "Made in Adrian High." Education and character are our guaranty Is there a bid from the industrial world? We promise you honest service, sixty minutes to every hour. Does the commercial world desire to purchase? You will find our character impeachable, and our statements accurate. Perhaps the professional world is looking for new material. You will find here concentration, and earnestness of purpose. This commencement Finds us fitted for usefulness and ready for use. Vile are living in a time most important in the history of our country. It is the period of reconstruction after the terrible world war. Now that the world will recognize us and we are ready to enter our fields of duty, EN: R -imma we will go forth and do our part in establishing forever what has been gainecl that the war may not have been fought in vain. XYe rejoice in our prepara- tion and trust that out traclemark has not been registered in vain. Classmates-The time has come when we must part-a time which is sad because we must leave our High School and can no longer continue as a class. But it is also a time of rejoicing because we have succeeded in this important step in our lives. However, we do not part forever, for we will meet again as members of the Alumni, it may be, if not, in a happier, better world. So let us not say "Farewell" which signifies a lasting separa- tion, but A'Mizpah," that is, "The Lord watch between us, me and thee, while we are absent, one from the other."

The bark in which the cruise was to be taken was pro- vided by a company k11own as the Board of Education. This company manned and ofhcered the good ship, High School, with utmost care. They selected those who were most able to guide the youthful voyagers through the many shoals and tempestuous seas which they must sail on their journey. At eight fifteen o'clock on that bright morning, all were safely embarked with cheerful hearts and high l1opes for future success. Old Glory, the flag of the free, floated gaily from the mast. The last bell sounded and with a scurrying to their places, they merrily launcl1ed on their way. Mr. E. J. Reed was tl1e stalwart captain at tl1is time, and whatever his feelings might have been toward this motley crowd, he concealed them with a pleasant smile. Surely there never was just such a peculiar band on board before. There were good, bad and indifferentg of the first class very few, of the second, a trifle more, and all the rest, the third. Some were tall, some were small, some were dark, son1e were fair, some were merry, some were thoughtful, all under seventeen-and none with any other object at l1eart than to have a good time-by fair means if possible, by foul if necessary. On the first day out, each and every passenger was assigned to his duties and given a11 especial place. Divided i11to different bands the company was placed under the careful watchfulness of Miss Patch. The seco11d day out, all on board were pleased to l1ear a loud, f'Land Ho," ring out on the balmy air, and to see tl1e coast of Algebra heave in sight. It's first appear- ance was rather reasuring and the pilgrims were anxious to explore. The e11tire band was placed under the protection of Buck and Mr. McNeil. Terror soon took the place of deligl1t as so many unknown quanities arose before them. Strange roots appeared here and there which they could not -extract, and overwhelming powers with which they could not cope, appeared in the air. Horrible dragons, which the protectors called quadratics, so terrified some of the company that, with a despairing cry of HI can't," they fled never to look that way again that year. The rest of tl1e party, though saddened by the loss of their comrades, returned safely to the boat. A difference of opinion arose in the class al1nost at once. Some wanted to land on ltaly's sunny shores to study the customs and languages of the ENI R Enllf. KLE ancients. Others, of a more scientific turn of mind, preferred to explore Natures real1n. All these enjoyed a short, happy sojourn but did not return to their comrades at the end of the course. The explorers of ltaly soon found themselves back with the ancients laboring among conjugations, cleclentions, and vocabularies. They had just a bowing acquaintance with infinitiyes and none at all with indirect discourse. As to speaking to the inhabitants of this country-it was not even considered. Some of them became so disgusted with the people there that they departed without any leave taking. The kindly mate, lVliss Marshall, at this point became nearly discouraged after her vain efforts with some of the explorers. Fortunately, however, one of her band met with an infinitive and recognized it, thus giving her courage to proceed. At the end of the first year the worst of these terrors had been overcome and but few of the original party were missing. At the first of the second year a dangerous reef appeared before them! beginning Virgil. Some were so disheartened by former dangers, so narrowly escaped, that they allowed their companions to proceed without them. Even though faesar wrecked a few, most of them were bold enough to begin the undertakings without complaining to the captain. Near the close of this eventful year, the maidens wearied their officers by constant pleading for festivity. At last it was decided to give the Senior Send-off, a memorable occasion which preceding classes had established. All on board and many guests attended this function. Thus happily ends the second year. 0 o IMI! 7 A 5 Y 55 , , V 33 w. '5 f, ,RES if 1 -3.3 -Q ' Fi X W if L, g . Q W A fj gy' . , ss ' xl . ' - ,, Z5 A 1.

We have no such illusions. and make claim only of ordinary, plodding, industrious, painstaking boys and girls, taking our tasks as they come unflinchingly, cheerfully, and trying our best to make good. Our preparatory schooling for the Fresh- man year was made in the Junior High when we were called upon to do our bit in support of war activities, which was done with a will. ln addition to the Red Vross work of the young ladies, the boys collected old rags and paper and sold them to the junk dealer, who was fairly swamped as the boys hustled auto load after auto load upon him. This was used to buy material for Red fross work. From the proceeds enough was realized to adopt a French orphan, Jeanne lVIagadur, and while we have passed out of the junior High, we consider her a protege of ours. Another French orphan, Robert Ciodot, was adopted by the class in memory of one of our number, liclward Hoddinot. It has been the privilege of the Freshman Class to organize a society, under the tutorage of Miss XYillsey, for the study of Public Speaking, Dramatic Art and Music. This organization is known as the Delphian Society. lt is proving both interesting and instructive and no doubt will, when better known, receive most gratifying and enthusiastic support. XYQ Freshmen number one hundred and twenty and while with our studies and war activities we have had no opportunity for social affairs in due time there is no doubt but what we shall shine. EN1 R En-IEKLE ENI R IEKLE " FOR CONSPICUOUS GALLANTRYH FORREST LAunENs1.AGER T WAS the night before QhI'1StI'I11S the dinner hour in a famous New Xork hotel. Hundreds of handsomely dressed and carefully groomed New York society people filled the magnificent room to the limit of its capacity, for fashionable Manhatten dines at six. The soft strains of an Hawaiian troupe hidden away in a huge bank of ferns and palms, the subdued tingle of china, silver and cut-glass, the laugh- ter, and the hum of conversation combined to make a sprightly confusion in the big cafe. Here and there among the small groups of conventionally clad men and beautifully gowned women, the blue and gold of a naval officer, or the olive drab of an army man added a touch of color to the typical American scene. Many of the keen-eyed men in uniform had returned from long, hard months of active service on the bloody fields of France and Belgium or from the navigating bridge of some great, grey dreadnaught or speedy destroyer. But these men had not forgotten the grim business that they were no longer engaged in, for at the table where they sat it was not unusual to see food forgotten, and the diners listening with rapt attention to some thrilling story of war. A large party of naval officers occupied one corner of the long room. These men were dining ashore for the first time in many weeks, for they came from a fleet of convoys that had anchored sometime before daybreak. This fleet had been in European waters protecting the troop ships that plied across the Atlantic with their precious cargoes of brave, American fighting men. The scene that night in the drawing room reflected the military power of a great nation that had gone to war for the right, and had won. Around the hotel, the great metropolis roared its never ceasing song, and up nearby Broadway surged an endless stream of pleasure seeking humanity. White, fluffy snowflakes fluttered slowly through the cold air to the wet, shining pavements. The falling flakes, and the happy spirits of the thousands that wended their way along the great thoroughfare, gave the whole scene a holiday atmosphere. In and out of the hotel passed men whose names were powers in finance, business and statesmanship, men who owned skyscrapers, steamship and railroad lines, representatives of the brains and business of a great nation. Near the busy entrance of the hotel, a man stood gazing wistfully through the windows of the brilliantly lighted dining room. Thin and shabbily dressed, he made a pathetic contrast amid the ever passing, chang- ENI R EIIEKLE ing throngs that passed through the shining glass doors into luxurious motor cars that swung away from the curb into lines of tralhc. The lights over the entrance revealed the white, drawn face, the shabby clothes of the man in the shadows. He looked, as he stood there under the gleaming electiric globes, like thousands of other unfortunates in a big city who had played the game of Lifeaand lost. Perhaps he had ventured there to look at a gay life which had never been his, for as he stepped away from the windows, he shrugged his shoulders and smiled, a faint, tired smile. He staggered slightly, made a valiant effort to regain his balance, and then sank limply to the street. Passersby instantly surroundeded the huddled figure in the gutter. - Two of the uniformed hotel doormen, who had been stationed near the entrance, lifted the man from the slush and mud and carried him into the lobby, placing his limp wet form on a leather davenport. A naval officer of high rank stepped out of the dining room, stooped over the man and then called for stimulants. A waiter came quickly with a large decanter, and the big man with the gold stars and bars forced some of the liquor between the man's lips. The figure turned slightly and gasped. Someone threw up a window and the man breathed more easily. As he lay there, something slipped from his bosom and gleamed on his plain shirt front. The naval officer picked it up and turned it over in his hand. f'Look," he cried, "Its the Croix de Guerref' Then he read the inscription. "To Lieutenant John Staunton, an American officer, for conspicuous gallantry and extra- ordinary heroism in executing orders in the face of overwhelming odds, The Republic of France confers this Medal of VVarwChateau-Thierry, july 23, l918." The big room was very still. Suddenly the man lifted himself on his elbow, and between set teeth shouted huskily-"It's the gas, boys, but fight, fight, we'll make it yetACome on, boys, come-." The voice quavered and stopped. The naval oHicer pushed back the frayed cuff, felt for the Huttering pulse and then shook his head. john Staunton, returned hero, had 'fGone XVest." Silently and reverently they covered the white, calm face. Through the windows, faintly borne on the wind, came the sound of singing voices, distant but clear. The words of a beautiful Christmas carol stole softly over the silent assemblage: "How silently, How silently The precious gift was given, So God imparts to valient hearts The blessings of his Heaven." EJENI R SIEKLE THRU CORRESPONDENCE DORIS ALv15RsoN ACK and I had quarreled. Of course, it was all Jack's fault, but 'Q he wouldn't own up to it, and for two whole months we had seen very little of each other. VVe met occasionally on the street or at a mutual friend's house and exchanged cool "How do you do's," but aside from that we hadn't seen each other for-well, just ages! lack wOuldn't apologize, and I wouldn't either, for it wasn't my fault. And then Jack enlisted. He came up to the house to bid mother and dad goodbye-we were old family friends, and Jack's Mother was dead. He didn't say a word about writing to me though, and didn't even mention just exactly when he expected to leave, but went away with a careless "So long." I left the room, for, of course, I didn't want Mother and Dad to see the tears that were dripping down my cheeks, and my nose was S0 red. One afternoon my chum and I were sitting on our front porch knitting Red Cross socks. VVe always spent our afternoon that way, and I was just starting my thirteenth pair. Suddenly Eleanor said, "Marie when we each finish our pair, let's put our names on them and see who'll get them and if they will write." I agreed and our needles clicked faster than ever. The next Saturday we took the finished socks with our names neatly sewed to the toes, to headquarters. XNIell, that's how it all started. Two months later I received a very charming letter from a Private Arthur Stratman, from a southern camp CI noted at the time that it was the same camp where ,lack was stationedb begging to thank me for the beauti- fully made socks, and would I please write to him. Of course I was cle- lighted and dashed off a friendly letter to my unknown correspondent. A week later I received a very interesting letter from him, with a complete description of his camp and his every day occupation. This correspondence continued for several months, and I was really very interested. He had asked for my picture and I sent him a snapshot-it wasn't at all good, but the best one I had. I couldn't understand at the time why he never mentioned sending me his picture. Now I understand it all. One beautiful summer day I received a telegram from him. "Have received unexpected furlough. Vl'ill arrive in your city at 3:15 on my way home. May I call?" Arthur Stratman. And it was 2:30 then. I.ess than an hour before he would be here. O, what would he be like? I hoped that he would be good-looking. He would doubtlessly take the 7:30 ENI R EIEKLE train for home that evening. I'p to that time it never occurred to me, that he had never mentioned his home town. XVell, I would find out when he came. I hastened upstairs and told Mother the news, and she imme- diately began plans for dinner. IVIother's thoughts always turned to food when a visitor was announced. I hurried into my most becoming gown. arranged fresh Howers on the dining table, and put my very latest popular music on top of the pile on the front of the piano. As I was passing the mantel, I straightened Iack's photograph-dear old Jack, how I missed him! I went out on the porch and composed myself with my knitting. How romantic this was. Here Iwas, waiting to receive a man whom I had never seen, and yet it seemed as though I had known him always. As I sat there I heard the whistle of the train, on time to a minute. The station was only two blocks away, but it was amazing how quickly a khaki clad figure found our street, especially when you consider the fact that he was a total stranger in the town. As he drew nearer there seemed something strangely familiar in his long stride, and his face reminded me so much ofiwhy it was-Jack! lYhat did this mean? Arthur Stratman-IackA? Hy that time he had bounded on to the porch andfwell we forgot all about our quarrel. Mother came out on the porch to greet Mr. Stratman and found herself in the embrace of jack. After the first excitement was over, I demanded an explanation. It seems that the man next to Jack in barracks had received the socks, with my name on them, and told Jack about it. Jack explained the situation to him, and they agreed that Jack was to write to me, borrowing the other man's name for the occasion. He seemed to think it an excellent joke, and after a while I saw the funny side of it too. After a ten day furlough, Jack and I parted on the best of terms, as good as any one could desire, and within ten days Jack sailed for France. It is needless to say that we corresponded regularly, over our own signatures. Lieutenant Jack is in the American Army of Occupation at present, but expects to be home soon, and after next June our correspondence with our friends will all be carried on in .Iack's name. EN! R IE KLE PRIDE AND PREJUDICE FRANCES SNEDEKER T was high noon at 'fThe Magnolias" and the sun was unusually warm and bright. Not a breath of air stirred the shining leaves of the tall trees around the old plantation house. These magnifi- cent trees were the pride of Judge Sutherland and the wonder of the country- side, and Judge Sutherland's old home had become known as "The Mag- nolias" because of their regal splendor. The Judge himself was no less well known. A true southern gentleman born and bred at "The Magnolias," he had been admitted to the bar and had attained to the dignity of Judge, a title his father had held before him. Being loved by black and white, the advice of the Judge was eagerly sought, and his word accepted as law. His love for the old plantation was almost a mania, and for it to fall into other than a Sutherland's hands was,-well, he could not bear to think of it. The plantation was alive today with the bustle and cheery calls of the dusky cotton pickers, but the judge in his library was not aware of the bustle, the sunshine, or of anything except the turmoil raging within him- self. Judge Sutherland was usually very calm and dignified, but just now he was hardly that. His face was lined and worn as if he were fighting a OH to great battle within himself. He pulled his white mustache abstractly- From time to time he stopped his pacing from window to door and back again and gazed at a large picture over the fireplace-a picture of a hand- SOIUC manly boy-gave it a half angry, half forgiving glance and passed resume his soldierly tread. He had just stopped for the fiftieth time before the portrait, when the library door opened noisily and a young man entered. Even to the casual observer his appearance was far from pleasing. His slouchy manner and bad carriage contrasted strongly with that of the erect and dignified Judge. The attitude of Clifford Donelly, from the soles of his highly polished riding boots to the top of his black-crowned head, was one of devil-may-care irresponsibleness and bravado. "Good morning, Uncle" said Donelly, "I took a longer canter this morning than usual as Ginger was feeling extra spicy, and rode through that pine road that leads to the West Field. I saw an incident in that VVest Field that I didn't particularly approve, sir." "How so?" queried the Judge. ENI R Enlll KLE His nephew's opinions or suggestions were always rather amusing to the Judge who had little or no respect for Donelly's big-headedness and only put up with it for the sake of his sister, the boy's mother, whose unhappy marriage had caused much sorrow to the Sutherland family. Seeing the Judge was inclined to be interested, Donelly went on with a flourish of his riding whip. "Well, sir, that big strong Rastus, Aunt Lizzie's son. was lying on the sand in the shade of a cotton bush taking life easy to all appearances, and your man Smithson, was trying to get him to go to work by talking to him. I asked Smithson why he didn't try the whip on him and see if that wouldn't penetrate his lazy hide. lVith that, Smithson replitd impudently that you did not allow the overseers to carry whips or to whip the negrocs. It seems to me, sir, that a whipping would do that lazy rascal good. Rastus said he was sick, but to my mind he wasn't any sieker than I amfthe lazy lout. The fact that you don't allow the overseers to use whips seems to me rather foolish, sir. A little whipping now and then, won't hurt 'em, they're nothing but negroes anyway." "That makes no difference, black or white, they are human. Rastus has never been known to be lazy unless for a good cause, and is one of my most trusted men," replitd the judge evenly. l'As for whipping, I will not hear of such inhumanity on my premises. You will deign to remember, sir, that Rastus once saved your life at the risk of his own. Your ingratitude is most untimely, young man. Furthermore, please remember that I am master here and will attend to such matters as I see fit. You may go now." "But"-interrupted Donelly. "Not another word, leave the room." Donelly withdrew sulkily, slamming the door after him. The Judge took a turn down the room, stopping again at the picture. I-Ie looked long and steadily into the big brown eyes of the lad above him. 'lOhl if I hadn't been so hasty, Phil, I never really gave you a chance to prove your innocence and somehow I know you are not guilty, you could not be, with your mother's eyes and the blood of a Sutherland in your veins." With a sad shake of the head, the Judge went to his desk and sat down wearily resting his head on his hands. Judge Sutherland had had two great sorrows in life. One, the marriage before mentioned, and the other, the overwhelming discovery that his dearly loved son, Philip, was a thief. There had been absolute proof of his guilt, for the morning after the robbery of 351000 from the Judge's library safe, Philip's cap had been found on the floor near the safe. Confronted with the evidence, Philip confessed quietly to the crime and no persuasion or EN! R IEKLE threat could bring forth his motive. The Judge, horrified and angry, had commanded him to leave the house and never set his foot in it again. He considered that punishment enough, for he could never eonsign his only son to the indignity of prison, and the disgrace to the Sutherland name must be covered, if possible. Phil had been gone three years and the ache in the Judges heart had never been stilled. He thought more bitterly every day of his hasty judg- ment against one of his own blood and it was only his uneonquerable pride that kept him from searching for his son. The next afternoon, judge Sutherland strolling toward the west field, met Rastus with a large basket of cotton on his head, going in the opposite direction. Rastus was an old favorite of his son's and was on very familiar terms with the Judge, whom he worshipped. His face was usually wreathed in smiles, but this afternoon he looked serious. "'Afternoon, ledge," he replied to the latter's greeting, mAh you in a pow'ful hurry now, ledge?" He questioned eagerly. "VVhy no Rastus, not especially, Why?" f'l'd like to speak to you 'all, ledge 'bout som'thin' 'portant. Right away, Marse Suth'land ef you all don' objee'." The Judge saw by the negroe's face that he was moved by something more than a plea for a barbeeue, a watermelon spread, or a eorn roast. 'Tome up to the house Rastus, Where we shall not be disturbed. I shall be very glad to hear what you have to say." Once in the library the old negro seemed more perturbed than ever. "lVlarse Sutherland, ah don't know how to 'splain to you all but ah reckons youyll understan'. Ah thinks it's ma duty to tell yo' 'bout somethin' l'se knowed for the las' three years 'bout lVlarse Phil, suh." The Judge gazing abstractedly around the room started. 'fAbont Phil?" he shot at the negro. 'fYes suh! Yes suh! 'Bout Marse Phil. You all sent Marse Phil 'way off 'cause you 'lowed he stole dat money. l'se eome to tell yo' dat Marse Phil didn't steal dat money." f'But Rastusw-fbroke in the Judge angrily, "if he didn't who did? Besides!--" "lVlarse Donelly did, suh E" "XYhat? Donelly? Explain yourself, Rastusf' b f'l'll 'splain suh! l'll 'splain. I might have knowed yo' wouldn't 'blieve me at fust, suh!

XYith the thousands that were called to the Colors following the declaration of war on April 6, 1917, were many graduates, and under-graduates of Adrian High School. Because of their unquestionable devotion to their nation, and because of their willingness to make even the supreme sacrifice if necessary for the cause which all held so dear. we are indeed devoted to them. Despite desires, however, many of the students of the High School were unalmle to participate in the great struggle for the right. lt was in orcler to hand such people together in preparation for organized war work that the Patriotic League of Adrian High School was formed. lt has not been the function of the League to actually produce supplies for domestic, and overseas use, hut rather to provide a firm financial foundation, upon which the actual work could he carried on. By co-operating with the junior Red Cross, the American Lilmrary Association, the Belgian Relief Fund, and the Y. M. F.

Hfranforcl Dames" was also presented to a large and appreciative audience. Several interesting plays were put on before the Society. It is through this Society that the Senior Plays are made possible and much interest has been shown particularly during the second Semester.

We meet once a week under the supervision of Miss Wlillsey, to whom we Owe a great deal for the prosperity of this society. The members have shown great enthusiasm and have been very eager tO participate in every activity we have taken. VVe took an active part in the May Festival. 'Although the Delphian is scarcely a year old, we consider it just as important as any of the other literary societies. Our only regret in becoming Juniors next year is that we can no longer be members of this society, but we sincerely trust and hope that a large number of the coming Freshmen will join it and strive to keep up its good record.

Oscar Peavey Secretary. . . ..,. Ruth Morse Treasurer .... .,,,,...,.....,.,,,. . George Merrill As when first organized, every student of the High School has a member- ship in the Red fross, which was paid by the High School Patriotic League. The entire amount of money given over by the Patriotic League for the purchase of yarn amounted to S523204. This paid for HQM pounds of yarn which has now been completed and turned in to the Lenawee County Red Cross Headquarters. The completed work consists of: 205 Property Bags 19 Sweaters 58 XYristlets Socks Another important item in the junior Red Vross work was the adoption of a French VVar orphan. The 5536.50 which was required for doing this was obtained from the same source as the rest of the Red Cross funds, the Patriotic League of the High School. lt has been decided to continue this work another year. The entire amount of work done in the High School made it plain to the Ciounty Chapter that the students of the school were willing and anxious to assist them in filling their many large quotas during the Vliar. Adrian High School is very glad to know that she has taken an active part in this grand work of the Red Cross which was one means of bringing this great VVar to a satisfactory close. 453 S, CT.

Hli High School Orchestra which has enjoyed a steady growth ever since Mrs. Newton came here in 1918 as Supervisor of Music, made its greatest increase in membership this year. This was largely due to the organization last year, of a junior Hi Orchestra which this year it was deemed best to unite with the Senior High. The instrumentation has not been as good as some previous years, but the progress has been much greater. This is the result of a certain amount of home practice being required and the progress is so evident to the members that they are now glad for what they at first considered a hardship. One of our last years members who has no other ensemble training than that received in our orchestra is now playing in a sixty piece band in a state university. He says he could if necessary make his living with his instrument, which goes to show that music is practical as a means of liveli- hood as well as being a desirable accomplishment. The Orchestra is always available and adds much to the social life of the school. Following is the membership: SENIOR I-IIGII SCHOOL -IIINIOR HIGII SCHOOI.

R III KLE GIRLS' GLEE CLUB HF Girls' Clee Club was organized in the autumn of 1917, by Mrs. Maud B. Newton, Supervisor of Music, with the same number of members as it has had this year. Of course, there have been some changes in membership, but those who did not graduate last year and could do so, have remained members this year. The work has consisted of instruction in theory and notation, sight reading and the use and care of the voice. Standard three part compositions for womens' voices have been studied. The Girls have appeared on various programs at the High School, VVoman's Club and Croswell Opera House, singing on the Commence- ment program both in 1918 and 1919. At the May Festival in 1918 they presented a very artistic Choral Composition "The Flower Queen."

The above teams were chosen to defend the Lyceum and Athenian. The debates were very good with the Lyceum Negative team winning first place. The Negative team was then, by nature of the contest, chosen to repre- sent the high school. The first debate in the league was held in the high school auditorium, january 29. Morenci presented the affirmative side of the question while Adrian took the negative. The decision was 2 to 1 in favor of Adrian. The next and last debate for the High School was held at Mt. Pleasant, March 4. The teams were evenly matched and the contest was very good, but on account of a slight misinterpretation of the rules of the league the Adrian team was handicapped by having to change from the plan of having one speaker give the rebuttal speech to the whole team participating in the rebuttal. Adrian lost but with the spirit of old Adrian High, took the defeat sportsmanlike and showed Mt. Pleasant that good feeling existed between the two schools. If the student body will only take more interest in debating, there is no reason why Adrian should not make a good showing in the league next year. May the best of success attend the team in the future. EN! R IE KLE. DRATORY AND DECLAMATION UCH interest wasshown in Oratory and Declamation this year. . Those who participated in the Uratorical contest were Doris Alver- son, Celia Brainerd and Kenneth Graham. Both the ninth and tenth grades took part in the Declamation contest. Those representing the ninth grade were Anna Moreland, Zelda W'ood, and Eugene Hall while those from the tenth grade were Harold Huff, Dorothy Olmstead and Eryl Rainey. Doris Alverson gained first place in Oratory with Celia Brainerd a close second. Harold Huff held first place in the Declamation contest with Dorothy Olmstead second and Zelda W'ood third. Miss Alverson and Mr. Huff, being the winners, were chosen to repre- sent us in the Sub-District Contest. The Sub-District Contest, which has been held at Hillsdale for many years, was held in Adrian this year and although there was not as large an attendance as might have been desired, it was a success. Morenci won first place in both Oratory and Declamation, while Adrian won second place in Oratory and fourth place in Deelamation. It takes a great deal of time and hard work to take part in a contest of this nature but much is also gained. We truly hope this work will meet with as much success, in years to come, as it did this year. OUR SUCCESSORS PROSSIER WATTs Editor-in-Chief MYER FRANK jrsssn FURBUs1-1 Business Manager Assistant Business Manager' The Sickle takes great pleasure in announcing the names of the Sickle Board for next year. The Senior class of next year should be congratu- upon lated having such capable men selected by the Faculty to head the publication of their Sickle. V There is no reason why the 1920 Sickle should not be the best that has ever been published. Mr. VVatts is a fine student and a good mixer and will be able to appoint a staff that will do excellent work. Mr. Frank has done Very good work this year in public speaking. He has also succeeded as business manager of some of the Thespian plays. Mr. Furbush is a hustler and will make an excellent man in his position. The present Sickle Board urges the incoming Senior class and the High School Faculty to stand behind Mr. XVatts and his assistants and help them in every way to make the Sickle a success. i will V 1 SE X i. wiv, 1- id K 2 X xp N H Q M ll 'C 3 :SEQ As" ABQ? 7 Q X , .

R 5lII KLE SENIOR PLAY ,L N keeping with the custom that classes before have established, the Class of 1919 presented as its senior play, f'Lady XVindermere's Fan," a comedy in four acts written by Oscar VVilde. Lady VVindermere receives a very beautiful fan as a birthday gift from her husband. A few months later, a friend, the Duchess of Ber- wick, calls and tells Lady Vvll1Cl6I'IllCI'C that all of London knows that Lord Vl'indermere is infatuated with an adventuress, lylrs. lirlyne. Lady Vl'in- dermere believes she has proof of her husband's guilt and appeals to her friend, Lord Darlington, for advice and assistance. He advises flight and divorce. After a quarrel with her husband, Lady Windermere goes to Lord Darlington's rooms, determined to flee with her friend to America, but later repents and returns to her home before the return of Lord Darlington. In her haste she leaves her fan which is found by Cecil Crahani, a rattle braiIIed fellow who gives it to Lord XYindermere.

An unusually interesting and instructive illustrated lecture was given by Dr. J. G. XVinter of the Greek department of the University of Michigan. Dr. W'inter's topic was 'tOn the Track of Ulysses." He carried his audience with him during his travels in the beautiful Island of Crete and over Greece, showing the wonderful, historical ruins of the Cretians. A good time was enjoyed by all. The open meeting of the Forum for the second semester was held in the Assembly room. Original metrical translations of Virgil and Aeneid were given by two of the members of the society. A tribute to France was given and Miss Mildred Hart gave select readings. The girls of the Glee Club furnished the music which concluded the pleasing program. ANNUAL MAY FESTIVAL The Annual May Festival was given for the First time in High School Auditorium, the 26th and 27th of May. The Lyceum put on a very clever Minstrel show as their part in the Festival. The Thespian and Athenian societies successfully staged HThe Lady of the Library" another of the features. ANNUAL SENIOR SEND-OFF The Annual Senior Send-off was given by the class of 1920, the evening of the 11th. A banquet was served at Gussenbauefs Tea Room, which was presided over by Prosser VVatts, the president of the Junior Class. Dancing to most excellent music was enjoyed in the gymnasium of the High School which was artistically decorated in red and white the colors of the class of 1919, the present Senior Class. LYCEUM BANQUET The Lyceum resumed its annual custom of holding a Banquet after having dispensed with it during the period of the war. The hall was prettily decorated with yellow and blue streamers and pennants. After a bountiful repast a very fine program of toasts and music was enjoyed. The event marked the decided success of the Lyceum this year. ENl R EIIEKLE OUR NEW DEPARTURE DRIAN has taken a step in an entirely new educational field and giyen us a good movie show each week during the second Semester. These picture shows for the most part have been well attended. The attendance, however, is increasing and the interest grows as the quality of the pictures presented increases. VVe believe that a good picture should be presented so as to make it worth while to spend an hour in this way. It should break the monotony of school life and occasionally give opportunity for a good hearty laugh. The film should also be of a strictly moral nature, having an educa- tional yalue, full of mirth, patriotism and beauty. It should teach many facts of other countries showing customs and the home life of its people. It should portray many of the beautiful things in Literature and Art. We all enjoyed Silas Marner on the screen and would like very much to see other classics. The movie in school has come to stay and we should support and con- trol it and not let it control us. XTC can do this by using our influence in securing the best quality of films that we are able to purchase. Let us all boost the school moyie. "Tl-IE AMERICAN F LAC" The presentation of the play, "The American Flag," by the Thespian Society for the benefit of the Community Film Fund, realized an unequaled success. The proceeds amounted to 320000, which made it possible to present these films at a normal price. ..-l-lf 4 " CRANF ORD DAlVlES" The girls of the Thespian successfully staged "Cranford Dames" as one of the plays given this year by the society. The money obtained from this play was used by the society for meeting the expense of a write-up in the Sickle and the remainder was used to establish a library for the society. As there are no dramatic books in the School Library, this is a very good use to which to put this money. EN! R 5112 KLE BACCALAUREATE On Sunday, june 8, the Baccalaureate address was delivered by Rev. Olmstead in the Methodist Church. The entire Senior Class as well as a large number of relatives and friends listened to a most inspiring sermon. The class of 1919 were fortunate in having such a good beginning for their commencement exercises. CLASS DAY The Class Day exercises of the class of 1919 were held on Vllednesday, june 11. Some novel features were introduced which made this program a most excellent one. The class of 1919 is to be congratulated upon the originality of the program. COMMENCEMENT Commencement exercises were held in the Croswell Opera House on june 13, 1919. A large crowd gathered to hear the address and to see the various members of the class receive their diplomas. President Charles McKenney delivered a forceful address to the graduates which should help them throughout their journeygof life.

R EIIEKLE FOOT BALL PEAVY-Ac'1'1Nc QTAPTAIN HE team emerged from a very light schedule with four victories and one defeat. The schedule was made lighter than usual by the "Influenza" epidemic, which caused the cancellation of several mid-season games. One outstanding feature of the season was that not an opponent had crossed the Adrian goal-line until the last game of the year. On Sept. 27 the team lined up against the Alumni for the first game of the season. Although the Alunini team was an aggregation of former High School stars and college players, it could do nothing against the supe- rior playing of the High School eleven. lt really was a good workout for the School lads as they had an easy time in defeating the old Grads by the score of 33-O. A week later the team journeyed to Coldwater to meet the fast Cold- water eleven. lt was a game hlled with thrills and was hotly contested throughout, because the teams were so evenly matched. Although the ball see-sawed back and forth on the held, Adrian had the ball in her oppo- nents territory the most of the time and the only score of the game was made when Adrian kicked a held goal in the last three minutes of play, thereby winning 3-0. Addison came here in high hopes on Oct. 12, and during the first quar- ter she furnished strong opposition. At the opening of the second quarter our team began working better and with a series of short passes and line plunges succeeded in scoring two touchdowns in this period. VVith a four- teen point lead to our credit, we started on another rampage in the second half that netted us several more touchdowns. The fllliil score was 28-0. Foot ball was broken up for several weeks by the Hfipanish Influenza" which caused the closing of school. But on Oct. 26, the local team with only a few days practice, advanced upon Hillsdale. The game was started late and was played in semi-darkness, which fact kept the Blue and VVhite from running up a larger score on their opponents. Hillsdale could do nothing against our stone-wall defense and on the offensive, our backfield time after time plowed through the Hillsdale line for large gains. VVhen the final whistle blew, Hillsdale was on the short end of a 19-0 score. Vkie were now getting ready for the Ann Arbor game which was the big game of the season. On the morning of Nov. 16, the team, accompanied by a handful of rooters, took the trip in automobiles to the University City. The game was played in a continual drizzle which slowed up the play some- 13 EN: R IEKLE. what. VVe started off with a rush and scored a touchdown in the first few minutes of play, but the Ann Arbor lads came back and scored two touch- downs before the first half ended. Thcir last touchdown, however, was a fiuke and we should have won for we clearly outplayed them. As it was the score stood 13-7 with Ann Arbor on the long end. Bird and Cruel at ends were fast and could be depended upon to stop any play that came their way. Bird was clever at shifting through the opposing interference to get his nian and Gruel could punt and drop-kick when called upon. George and Peavey, the husky tackles, were a tower of strength on the line. Both had had previous experience and they had a knack of getting through and breaking up the play. It will be hard to fill their shoes next year. At right guard, Gould played a hard and steady game, although ham- pered by injuries received the first of the season. Left guard was fllled by Angell and Long, both new men, but who will make good men next year. The center position was filled by Furbush, who although lacking expe- rience, make up for this by his hard work and should be a valuable man next fall. Vl'atts at right half was used on end runs for his speed and his ability to pick a hole. His fighting spirit will make him a capable man for next year's captain. Wilcl, with his natural foot-ball instinct and Annis, with his speed, filled the other half positions in a creditable manner. The fullback position was filled by VValker. "Bus" was on the job every minute and his wonderful fighting spirit, strong defensive playing and line plunging are worthy of mention. Gibson, who played half back on last year's eleven, developed into a good quarter back and he led the team in fine style. In the Coldwater game he did some clever work in returning punts and he was also a good line plunger. FOOT BALL SUMMARY Teams Date Place H. S i Adrian Alumni. . .

Vlie had two "A" men and all the "R" men black from last year and out of these Coach McNeil developed a hard-hghting, clean-playing and winning team. On Jan. 14 we had our annual clash with the Alumni, and the old grads' quintet, which consisted of college players, succeeded in defeating us, after a hard struggle, by a 39-24 score. Three days later we went to Tecumseh where we had an easy time in defeating the Tecumseh five. The score was 42-8. The following week Coldwater came here and took a severe drubbing to the tune of -19-14. The lads from Branch County could not withstand the well-organized teamwork and the speed and the accurate basket shooting displayed by our boys. The next victim was Hudson on Feb. 1. The playing was fast and rough and the score rather close at the end of the first half. But in the last half we displayed an offense that took them off their feet and the final result was 26-16 in our favor. On Feb. 7 we went to Ypsilanti and in spite of the fact that our regular forwards could not make the trip on account of physical disability, we won 18-14. The end of the first half found Ypsi leading 9-5, but we started an old-time rally and succeeded in bringing home the bacon. The next week we went to Ann Arbor. lt seemed as if we couldn't get started in this game and they ran up a good lead in the first quarter which they kept throughout the contest. XTC came back strong in the second quarter and scored two points to their one. The last half was hotly con- tested with the honors about evenly divided. The game ended 28-15 in Ann Arbor's favor. Monroe, our bitterest rival, came here on Feb. 21 and was forced to accept defeat at the hands of our team. The game was close and exciting and at the end of the first half the score was 13-13. In the last half the defense of both teams tightened, but we managed to slip over six points on them while they only made two and so the final score was Monroe-15, Adrian-19. Our next game was at Hillsdale on Feb. 28. Up until this time they had won every game that they played, but it did not take them long to find out that they were up against a superior team. Vte started fast in this game and accumulated a good lead before they realized what was happening. EN! R EIIEKLE They came back strong and made the score rather close but we kept a safe margin and the game ended with a 29-21 score against them. Marshall came here the following week. VVe anxiously awaited the outcome of this game, for this was Marshalls first appearance on our floor and she came here with the reputation of being a strong team. lt started out as if it were going to be a close game but we gradually increased our lead until it became a regular walk away. The game ended 52-14 in our favor. The biggest game of the season was played here on March 14 with the University of Detroit High School. They had played some of the strongest teams in the state and won every game and came here expecting to meet with little opposition. NVe had a little surprise prepared for them and they went back a defeated team. Our Eve-man defense seemed to puzzle them and they were forced to take many long shots, which resulted disastrously for them. We won 29-20 and it was a fitting close of a successful season. THE TEAM Brower and Bassett were a pair of forwards that could be depended upon to score points when they were needed. Brower played a steady game and was never found wanting in a pinch. Bassett was a fast man and his effective dribble coupled with his accurate shooting made him a valuable man. Gruel performed at center in a creditable manner. He had a good eye for the basket and was equally strong on the defense. Captain Snedeker at stationary guard and Gibson at running guard worked together in such a way that it was almost impossible to get a close shot off from them. Snedeker worked hard every minute and always had his man well covered. Gibson was noted for the Hgentleu manner in which he treated his opponents and he also had a tendency to slip down and ring up a basket when the occasion demanded it. Bird at forward and NVatts at guard were valuable and experienced men and came very near making the first team. Bird had a good eye for the basket and Watts was always sure of getting his man. 1 LINE-UP Right Forward. . . .......... ..... B rower Left Forward .... .... T Bassett Center ......... .....

A team was organized and though the girls were not particularly successful in winning the outside games, they were important factors in making them novel and interesting. Games were played with Tecumseh, Monroe, and Adrian College, besides a number of inter-class games. The girls have surely made a beginning this year and next year with a little interest and co-operation, they will, no doubt, have a team of which the school may be proud.

To the Adrian business men we are greatly indebted, for without their advertising it would be impossible to publish this annual. Great credit is due Doris Abbott, Warren Snedeker, Oscar Daniels, Emma Hopkins, Major Bird and Harold Hough for their fine drawings which add so much to this book. We heartily recommend to our successors, Mr. F. S. Barnum and the Indiana Engraving Company for their splendid work. To the S. F. Finch Printing Company goes a great deal of appreciation for the skill and patience with which they handled the printing and bind- ing of the Sickle. Probably to Mr. E. J. Reed, more than any other one person, do we owe our most sincere thanks for the willing help and advice he has given us in every way possible. We hope that all those who have aided us in any way will accept these words of appreciation in the spirit which they are given.

The demand for a nerve remedy that will act by a gradual upbuilding of nerve force is constantly being encountered in the practice of medicine. IZ It is astonishing the number of people who might be brilliant successes in this world if that awful condition of nerves did not keep them down. Many, of course, do not realize the cause-Y' wonder why they do not think as clearly as formerly, do not come to as quick a decision, and never realize that there overworked nerves are warning them and crying for relief before it is too late. If realization does come to them they are often deterred from seeking the relief they should obtain by friends or family saying: "Oh, you're only nervousg that will wear off." E You have only to look around to see the utter foolishness of that remark. It does not wear oft, as the thousands of nervous wrecks who neglect themselves can prove. Do not neglect yourself. We invite you to come to us for a thorough examination. We will give you our honest opinion of your condition. I: Remember- Electricity will often cure when drugs and operations fail. This may be your last chanceg you cannot afford to miss it. The Hygienic Institute IZ5 E. MAUMEE ST, OFFICE HOURS Over Louise Burgefs Millinery Store Phone 710 8:30 A.
