THE SCHOOL BOARD
Mrs. Maude Newton
After efficiently conducting the music depart-
ment of the Adrian schools for a number of years,
Mrs. Maude Newton has decided to leave. 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.

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.

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
Once more we bid you welcome and hope you will enjoy the program
we have prepared to celebrate this, to us, all important day.

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.

THE SPIRIT OF THE FUTURE
I am the spirit of the future and I can tell you of the fates and fortunes
"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
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
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."

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.

From which we are loth to depart.
We are glad to pledge our word,
To take our lessons to heart.

Ever mindful of the days gone by
As we strive every promise to fulfill.
Now may God bless you all as we part

To be loyal we ever shall tryg

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."

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF l920
T VVAS '1 sunnv moining 111 September, two years ago, when one
hundred and twenty girls and boys left their homes to start on a
long voyage, which if successful, would bring them to anchor in
Graduation Bay. 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
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.

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,

" FOR CONSPICUOUS GALLANTRYH
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
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
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
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
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

John Staunton, an American officer, for conspicuous gallantry and extra-
ordinary heroism in executing orders in the face of overwhelming odds,

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,

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,

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

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
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.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
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
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-
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."
"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

In far away Adrian town,

And the air ships sailing round.

In hot pursuit of the Hun.
Through rivers of lmlood we ehased them,
Through the lmattIe's awful roar,
Till at last into old Berlin we marched,
Straight up to the Iiaiser's door.
And there we nailed Old Glory:

The cotlee I lmrew in a tuh,
And on washday, which rolls around often,
The clothes without soap I must rub.

And Kaiser Bill farther away,
And my dreams hold dilierent yisions,

. 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

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."

Resolved: That the state of Michigan should adopt a
minimum wage for unskilled labor, constitutionality waived.
This is the first time that Adrian High School has taken an interest in
debating and been represented in the Michigan Debating League. 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.

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.

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

,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
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. Mrs. lirlyne arrives
at the psychological moment and claims responsibility for the loss of the fan

OPEN MEETINGS OF FORUM
The open meeting of the Forum for the Iirst semester was held in the
evening in the Assembly room. 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.
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.

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
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.
" 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.

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-

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
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
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

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
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,
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.
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
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.

GIRLS' BASKET BALL TEAM
OR the first time in several years, a great deal of interest has been
shown in Basket Ball for girls, especially on the part of the girls
themselves, who responded enthusiastically and eagerly to this
activity. 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.

HE time has come when the Class of 1919 has approached the close
of its career in Adrian High School and at this time we take the
opportunity to thank those who have assisted us in the publication
of the twenty-third edition of the Senior Sickle.
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.

"Advice is thrown away on a young man who considers
it beneath him to work at anything which hardens his
hands or soils his garmentsg hut to the one who is not afraid
of downright work I would suggest: frugality, investing
surplus earnings Cif only a dime a day, in a savings bank,
and reading useful hooks during Ieisure hours."-Hunzingmn.

Nerves-that's it. 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
I: Remember- Electricity will often cure when drugs and operations fail. This may be your last
chanceg you cannot afford to miss it.
