VVhen We entered Adrian WMM X High School three years ago, Class Day, one of the most important events 6 of graduation, seemed very far away. But no-W it seems only yesterday ' fe that we entered dear old Adrian High School. X fist, ,lf alla iilxigi ' Tonight we wish to extend to you, parents and teachers, our thanks for your interest in us and your kindly assistance. If it had not been for you, we would not have enjoyed so many advantages, consequently our achievements would have been more limited. The way has not always been smooth. Some were handi- capped financially and were obliged to work their way through high school. Many drove long distances in order to attend. We were obliged to forego pleasures and remain at home studying. But we overcame our difficulties and stand before you to- night with pride and joy in our record as a class. The future is before us. No one can foretell what it holds. Adrian High School has afforded us excellent training and preparation. Our future achievements should be great. VVhether or not they will be remains with ourselves. VVe extend to you a most cordial Welcome. We hope you will enjoy this enter- tainment and carry away a pleasant memory of the class of 1926. W3 The SENIOR SICKLE 1926 07111 - W3 CLASS HISTORY LUCILE SCHNEIDER Ejfza-Vlf' ISTORY is often thought of as a record of a series of dates, battles and important events. So this history is a chronicle of the most important events of our high school days. September 4, 1923, is one of the most memorable dates in the history of the class because! it is the day on, which we, as Freshmen, entered Adrian High School. This class of two hun- dred and one members was the largest class to be enrolled in this school. ln spite of our numbers, we felt some timidity in facing those upper-classmen because we had heard rumors about the way Freshmen were treated, but we: were determined to march, right in and fight for our rights if we must. We soon became accustomed to the other pupils and even adopted some of their ways. lylany were our achievements that first year. Robert Matteson was chosen to be our leader. The Freshman Booth at the Pep Society Carnival, which was attractively decorated with the class colors, the royal purple and gold, was one of the prettiest there. Campbell hiurphy was playing his second year on the Football team and two other Freshmen boys were on the Basketball team. In the Declamatory Contest VVendell Smith was awarded first place. At the end of the first year we knew we had a class that could show real school spirit. After a happy summer vacation, we returned to make the second year a greater year than the first. We had forgotten the fears of the Freshman year and felt quite free to converse with our old friends and meet new ones. At our class meeting, we chose Wendell Smith as our president. He proved to be a most efficient leader. Again the boys showed their good school spirit in Athletics. Four of the Junior boys were on the Basketball team and. many of them fought successfully on the Foot- ball team. Our Class Program was made a success by the presentation of' "The Teeth of the Gift Horse" and the "Class Song," written by one of our members, Beatrice Little. One of the Junior girls, Glendora Hurlbut, took the leading part as "Theresa" in the Operetta f'Captain Crossbonesn and many of the Juniors were in the chorus. VVe were pleased with our Junior year and came back to school on September 8, 1925, confident that we would fight to win. To assure our success, Victor Keip was chosen as our leader. For the third time the boys of our class took their places on the Football and Basketball: teams. One of the important events of the season was f'The Bells of Beaujolaisf' The majority of the members of the cast were Seniors and many Seniors were in the chorus. The Senior play, "The Whole Townls Talking," was one of the finest plays which has been produced in this High School and We wish to express our appreciation of the untiring efforts of Miss Thomas, who directed the play. Our greatest undertaking, as a class, was to earn money to finance an Educa- tional Tour to Washington, D. C. The aim of the class was to earn enough money so that every member could enjoy this privilege. Our class was the first to break away from old customs and introduce the cap and gown for Commencement Week. VVC have fought our battles in the school and tomorrow marks the close of our High School History and the beginning of a new era in our lives. The SENIOR SICKLE1926 WIP 0Pi'J CLASS PROPI-I ECY CLARA MCKEIGHAN, FRANCES COLLAR Frances: Hello, Clara, I haven't seen you in ages. What are you doing? Clara: Why, at present, I'm reading extracts from Victor Keipys diary which has just been published. Y0u've heard about Victor's books, of course? F.: Yes, Iive read several of his books and enjoy them very much. I imagine that his diary is very interesting. C.: It is. It has several references to some of our old schoolmates. F.: Oh, let's look it over together. CThey begin to glance over first page.D This name sounds familiar Qreadsj : March 19, 1940-Wife and I went to see UClaude Carpenters Cross Continental Circusn today. VVe were surprised to see some of our old schoolmates taking part. Harold Sharp led the band which was called HSharp,s Spectacular Syncopated Sere- nadersf' In the band were Clarence Biscupski, Norman Baker, Burr Allen, Charles Leonard, Norman Clark, Keith VanDusen and Montelle Springer, whose specialty is the mouth-organ. John Ampey gave a Charleston and clogging exhibition and Fred Temple sang his new song, 'KTen Nights in a Barrooml' Very soulfully. Lyster Dewey also made a big hit while singing "Oh Evelynf' Upon inquiring, I found that Evelyn was in another tent mending Lyster's socks. Dean Long was the ring-master. He made an imposing figure in a tuxedo. A thrilling prize-fight was held between Harold Hornby and Richard Shrader, the heavy and light weight champions of the world respectively. Laurene Bovee sang 'fBring Back My Bonnie to Me" Cby the way, Francis is the giant in one of the side shows but considers himself above herl. Eva Hilkert, Doris Gregg and Estalla Miller sold popcorn and pink lemonade with the ease of professionals. They must have acquired this training in their Senior year at high school. Dorothy Jackson and Creita Eayrs were very graceful tight rope walkers. just outside the main tent, we met Marguerite Van Auker who paints pictures while you wait. Her paintings have a very "Frenchyl' appearance. As we were leaving the circus grounds we had a little accident. Our chauffeur ran into a taxi bearing a huge sign which read "Transportation of Other Fellows' Girls." Upon close investigation it proved to be driven by Lynn Bowerfind. Imogene Zook was riding with him but explained that she was out collecting Dr. Jewett's "Bill,' when Lynn offered her a ride. C.: Isn't that interesting? Let's see. Victor married Dorothy Bly, didn't he? F.: Yes, isn't that a perfect match? C.: Here is something else: April -I-Went to Edwin Blohm's bookshop today to see about a publication. I found Eugenia Mott deeply absorbed in "The Life of Scott." Ruth Loveland, Irene Kahle and Ethlyn Hurlburt were Working there and are considered excellent authori- ties on literature. I purchased two books, one entitled "How We Won Bliss" by Eula Burtch and Florence Holloway, the other by Everett Stevenson, "Flapperism- How to Crush It." F.: I wonder if he mentions Adrian in his book. Let's glance through it and O WW The SENIOR SICKLE 1926 . ,W . mi see. CThey turn pages.D Here! wait a minute! I thought I saw something about Adrian. C.: Sure enough, read it. F.: CReadingj: May -I-I thought I'd like to go back to see old Adrian again so we left im- mediately and "here we are." We expect to do the town tomorrow. C.: Oh keep on reading. F.: Continuing: May 5-Went down town today. We found Perry Wilson managing a K'Smith" store with Richard Mawin as an assistant. Frank Collins was running a garage with "Fiske" Tires a specialty. We found that Lucile Schneider is an auctioneer while VVinnifred Rau is her traveling companion and takes care of the sales. Margaret Krout and Lois VValdron have established a confectionery store which seems to be more popular than the 'lBusy Bee" was in High School Days. Irene Bailey and Margaret Rogers are silk hosiery saleswomen. VVe passed a hotel which we were told was built very recently. It was an imposing structure with a prominent electric sign which read "The A. Frank Hotel, 2000 Rooms and a Bathf' We noticed through the window that Gladys Burkhart was the desk clerk. Down the street a short way we found another new building. VVe found that it was a laundry. There was a huge bill-board on the front of the building which read HDon't Kill Your VVife-Let Us Do Your Dirty WVork"-C. Spies. We went in and looked the place over and saw that Laura Hibbard, Jeanette llloflit and Dorothy Pieplow were assisting Charles. We came to a neat little shop which happened to be Josephine Beal's Beauty Shop. Nellie-lNIae Bennett is the manicurist and Louise Bishop gives henna rinses. Perhaps the most important feature of the show was Arno lVIiller's shoe-shining quarters. It is said that Arno is very skillful in this profession. VVe also learned that this Beauty Shop is patronized by Albert Zimmerman who is now the lVIayor of Adrian and was earnestly striving to keep his school-girl complexion. Dorothy Thomas is 'a famous modiste. Her mannekins who often visit Paris are Cleo Quigley, Leta Yeutter, Ruth Geer and Lulu Root. It was noon by this time so we stopped in to Gladys VVest- gate's little tea-shop on the four corners. She makes a specialty of "Campbells" foods. VVe talked with Gladys for some time and she told us that Kenneth Ryan was the Governor of Ohio and that Avis Adam was his private secretary. She also said that we should not fail to visit the Tack factory. As soon as we left the tea shop we waited for a street-car to take us to the factory. VVe were in the act of board- ing one headed in the right direction when the conductor,"Cappy" Lewis, informed us that this street-car was for ladies only. C.: Claughingl: Do you remember how "Cappy" used to avoid the girls in high school? F.: I should say so, and now to think that he is so entirely devoted to them. You read on, will you? C.: Continuing: Finally a street-car came. This one happened to be run by VValter Bohn. We arrived at the Tack factory and there a great surprise awaited us. The factory was owned by Robert Jackson and the tacks were guaranteed to produce dimples like his if fallen on properly. Ruth Derby demonstrated for us. We returned to the down town district to complete our shopping. VVe stopped to admire a pearl necklace in a 6 . The SENIOR SICKLE 1926 r ff-. fffmf... UF'-9 jewelry store window where a placard caught my eye. It read HSee the Earles Girls about your Pearlsf' We found the store to be owned by Evelyn, Martha and Vivian Earles. They told us that Opal Hendrickson is the Queen of Jamaica and that just recently, at: her suggestion, Glennis Van Auker has gone there to run an airplane service for the uplift of the natives. We passed a quiet looking gray home which looked rather gloomy. On the porch sat Frances Westerman. She told us that it was her place of business and that all those who had been disappointed in love came to live there. Some of the victims were Erna Schmidt, Louise Baker, Esther Jones, Con- stance Wiggins and Lois lVIacKenzie. We passed on feeling very sorry for the ill- luck which has befallen the poor girls when all at once we heard a noise resembling a hand-organ. On a prominent street corner we found the cause of the noise. It was an inexhaustible gum machine with a musical attachment. Helen Hughes, Thelma lVIay and Thelma VVooster had invented it and were selling gum. As we were in the act of speaking to the girls, Clement VVright burst forth from a building near by and besought the girls to move their machine as it disturbed him. I thought this rather unreasonable but Clement explained that he, assisted by Harvy Berndt and Paul lVIurphy, conducted an exclusive girls' school and that the young ladies were disturbed by the music. We purchased an Adrian Daily Telegram and went home. F.: So Clement is conducting a girls' school! I should have guessed that he would conduct a boys' school. Well, for goodness sake, look at this: "VVe read the paper with much interest and the following clippings especially interested us: 'Debate tonight on the momentous question-VVhy is the heavier end of the match the lighter?' The World Debaters, Kenneth Gruel and Harold Townsend-afhrmative, vs. Claire Peck and Elton Beekel-negative. The debates of these famous men have gone down in history as prominently as the Lincoln-Douglas debatesf, C.: Imagine that, and they were our class-mates. Aren't you proud? Here is another clipping: WANTED-a man who doesnlt smoke, chew, drink or swear. Prefer white. I am a rich old maid and live on a farm. Claribel Engle, FOR SALE or rent-cats, any color, enquire lVIaxine Bachman, Lois Van Dusen or Ruth Swenk. LEARN TO RIDE! Riding Academy-Helen Pries and Elizabeth Prange. F.: Why here are some more clippings: MICHIGAN CHOOSES POET LAUREATE lN'Iarion VViley has been chosen poet laureate of lwichigan. This honor was said to be the direct outcome of her famous poem "To Charles." HIVIore missionaries neededf, says Vvilliam Drager, missionary in Siam. Mr. Drager is doing excellent work and the missionary hospital conducted by Edna Blouch, lNIay Stonacher and Hazelle Somerville is said to be well populated. The noted Scientists, Charles Dennies and Elwood Miller, are exploring for Dinosaur eggs in Greenland. C.: VVhat is this clipping about radio stations or something? Oh I see. fReads.j Hear Thelma Reisig, Ruth Droegemueller, Florence Scholl and Lena Smith tonight, broadcasting from station A H S on "How VVe Crochet." Lavern Engle will sing "The Prisoner's Song." He has been heard from coast to coast and The SENIOR SICKLE1926 cw aa-g-sa iw the audience never fails to burst into tears. Earl Young will lecture on "W0'man Suffrage-A Curse." F.: That must have been a fine lecture. There are no more clippings so let's read in the diary. May 6-We decided that we would like to visit the old school before returning to VVashington so promptly at 8 o'clock this morning we started for the school. We were surprised at the number of our class-mates who were instructors. Helen Tag is the Physical Training Teacher, lVIelvin Beebe is the Coach, Louise Filter teaches French, Darrow Thompson teaches Shorthand and Eunice jones teaches Geometry. In conversation with these teachers we learned that Campbell Murphy operates a can opener factory in Blissfield. He is the head salesman, having acquired his excellent training in salesmanship in his Senior year at high schoolg also that Burton Bartlett is a preacher in Philadelphia. It is said that his dignified presence is a great inspiration to the congregation. Helen Harvey is the organist and lklarguerite Stetten often renders a violin solo. Wilma Reganall, Ruth VVeaver and Ruth Lash sing in the choir. C.: Can't you just see Burton preaching? Let's read on. llay 7-Before leaving Adrian I made some inquiries about people whom I used to know. I learned that Harold Patchet is coaching a girls' football team at Oberlin. Lillian IVillnow, Nita Schultz, Susie Pixley, Katherine Bellenir, Laura Hibbard, Edith Miller and Jeanette Boyden are star-players. Carleton Smith is a professional football player, second only to "Red" Grange. Alvin Blanchard and Frances Anderson have made many experiments in the agricultural line. One of their finest discoveries was how to grow sweet lemons. Robert lliatteson is now playing with Paul VVhite- man's orchestra. lr is generally believed that when Yvhiteman retires Bob will take his place. Arthur Babcock is teaching Science at the U. of IVI. F.: I never realized that there were so many talented people in our class. tTurns pages., This is just business references. Let's skipf them. VVe can read the whole book some other time. Here is something. Sept. 1-Secured tickets for the opera tonight. The opera was staged by Dale Spaur. lt was entitled "Oh Elin." Andy Engel was the leading man and Helene Hoisington took the part of 'iMin." Phyllis Parker, Marcella Bachman, Myrna Trosien and lllarie Fairbanks were in the chorus. David Curtis was the comedian and was unusually funny. C.: Say, speaking of operas, I happened to think of Glendora. F.: Why, is she in an opera? C.: IVell, she was to make her debut in Faust's opera but just as she was to appear she was seized with such a violent fit of giggling that it was impossible to carry the performance any further. F.: How like Glendorai C.: Let's return to the Diary. Oh, listen to this! Sept. 20-hir. Richard Beck, of Hollywood, California, called today and had dinner with us. He informed us that he often doubles for Reginald Denny and that at present he is trying out for the leading part in the picture "She Is A Violet." He also said that Kay Sampson's latest picture is UHOW Could You, Clarence." Emilie Schubert is also in pictures. Beck was quite surprised when I told him that Wendell The SENIOR SICKLE 1926 cw al. - A a a a-a wa Smith was posing for 'kArrow Collar" advertisements. He said that he had seen pictures of Helen Beebe and Virginia Westgate on magazine covers. Oct. 5-Received a letter from Bert Robbins, who is now a noted architect, in which he stated that he is very busy working on plans for a new high school building in Adrian. The school board wants to have the plans ready so that if by any chance the school bill passes in the coming 19-P2 election, the work on the new school can begin at once. In the same mail Dorothy received a letter from Viola Iasmund, in which she stated that she and Claire Lee were happily married and living in Birdsal. Claire is mayor, city council, and dog warden of that thriving metropolis. She also stated that Alice Randolph and Clifton Jordan were married but soon divorced because Clifton refused to learn to Charleston. F.: Goodness, is that ll o'clock? I must go. I haven't been out so late since I left high school. C.: It seems strange that so few of our school-mates are married. F.: My dear, give them time. We'll continue reading tomorrow.

I - , ,gg .i Vg.q w GIFTATORY RICHARD BECK URING the three years we have been in high school, the faculty has taken keen delight in giving souvenirs and memoirs of one kind and another. It is now my pleasure to conclude this good work. These little presents are given because it is thought that they will be needed after the receivers have left the protection of our dear teachers. Much deliberation and great care was used in selecting these costly gifts. Due to this great expense in collecting, it is obvious that all could not receive them, so I have selected those members of the class who, I think, will be able to use them to the greatest advantage. The first gift is for Burr Allen. Some people will probably wonder why I am giving him this hair curler, but anyone who knows him will agree with me in saying that he needs it. To Laurene Bovee I wish to present this volume of Longfellow. She can be with him all the time now instead of at intervals. This "Ford Instruction Book" may be useful to Paul BIurphy if he takes any more trips to Pontiac. This toy dog is for Katherine Sampson. I will leave the naming of it to her but suggest that she call it "Brownie," I think this rattle will go very well with Gladys NVestgatels baby talk. The cake of Palmolive Soap, "for that school-girl complexion" can be for none other than Lynn Bowerfind. Although Phyllis Parker will undoubtedly know the contents of this book, I am sure it will be valuable to her to use for reference. The title is "The Conquest of the Normans." It is my sincere wish that this monkey will help keep Arno Nliller from being so unulterably bored. These hand tailored trousers are for Nlarguerite VanAuker. They will go well with her hair cut. Everyone knows Jean lNIott has almost ruined her health by staying up at times until morning, just to make herself the most proficient student in the geometry class. This vanity case is a small reward for her efforts. ln our class we have two powerful orators and the members want to show them some appreciation for their efforts. Fred Temple gets this medal for being the fastest talker, while Bob Matteson earns his by being the loudest and most volumi- nous speaker. The last gift I have to bestow in behalf of the class of 1926 is to extend its best wishes to the members of the Junior and Freshman classes.

I The silence was occasioned by a knock VVhich echoed loudly in the crowded Hall. An aged man in quaint and Well-Worn frock Arose to meet the unexpected call. II In the street outside, a murmuring sound increased, 'Mid voices raised in cries and bits of song. Within the doors, the laboring multitude ceased Their work to inquire the cause of laughter long. III It was a Work of many different kinds, As varied as shells or sand beside the sea. The craftsmen dwelt in near and distant climes But in them all a likeness seemed to be. IV For each and all possessed a certain store Not only of Wealth or health or self-content, But also of knowledge placed there long before When each was young and on some learning bent. V The chairmanis eyes by chance fell on the sign That gleamed and scintillated on the wall, Then suddenly remembered it was June, And therefore just the time for such a call. VI Then rushed he to the door and Hung it wide, ,Till the sun shone on that sign "Alumni.', To those who waited, he bade, "Come inside, Welcome, Class of Twenty-Six, Adrian Highf, Wil The SENIOR SICKLE 1926 VALEDICTORY OPAL HENDRICKSON YW ' WELVE years of work, well done, that is what Class Day means to us. Twelve years which we have given to prepare ourselves to perform our 7 . , . . . f' 'NWT part in the worlds affairs. Tonight we go out from., these halls hlled 6, 2' f 'v v 7 'Sl Gigi with a realization of the world s problems and of our duty to help solve ' Q Q2 ml . them. 2 W0 W lt is the tendency at such a. time as this to look backward instead of into the future. VVe forget all the cares of high school and remember only the many pleasures and benefits we have gained. Parents and friends, we sincerely thank you for the kind support you have given us. VVe greatly appreciate your kindness, en- couragement and the timely counsel you have given us amidst our difficulties and trials. Now we turn our minds toward the future with its possibilities and opportunities. The Great War brought into the foreground the necessity for education. VVhen we think of the thousands of men who were turned away from the army because they did not know enough English to follow the commands of their officers, of the thou- sands of first-class fighting men admitted into the army, who could neither read nor write, we know that the elimination of illiteracy is one of the most pressing problems which will confront us during our lifetime. If we think of the large percentage of applicants who were turned away because of ill health in the early days of the late war, we appreciate at once the necessity for a new program for health education. But physical fitness alone is not everything. VVe must come to a fuller realization of the fact that every human being has his place in the general plan of things and it is the business of education to fit the individual to find and till his place. Not only in the educational field are we needed but there is a great necessity for trained minds and hands in every branch of industry in the country. VVe will be called upon to do the things that others have done and we hope to perform them honestly and well. ln the years we have spent at Adrian High School, we feel that we have. been given a liberal preparation for what We have to do. It is not the preparation but the way we use that preparation by which we will be measured. The honors will go to those who dare to venture and learn to lead and only time can tell who those shall be. VVe went to school to equip ourselves to enter the world. To many of us Class Day means the end of all school training but to others it is merely a stopping, after which we will continue our work in College and Universities. Tomorrow night at Commencement, this great body of friends will meet to- gether for the last time. This is our last opportunity to say farewell. It is with profound gratitude we say farewell to you, our teachers, who have taught us the proper attitude toward life and have inspired and encouraged us. Members of the Class of 1926, as We say farewell it is with a feeling of regret that we must part. YVC know that the world holds sorrow as well as joy but we are eager to find our life's work. As we step into a larger life, let us hold fast to what we have gained in high school and utilize it to our best advantage. Let us fashion a vision in our minds of what is expected of us and then meet our responsibilities. Let us conscientiously put forth our best efforts and be determined to make good, come what may.

Such a downfall, we, the class of 1927, experienced in September, 192-I-. VVe soon found our places, however, and set out to work toward our goal- 'ef graduation. As Freshmen, we elected Edward Baldwin president, and lVIiss Arm- strong class adviser. We were successful in athletics through the efforts of the boys, who won A's, through the girls' basketball team and in the musical organization where we were well represented. Other activities were our booth at the Pep Carnival and the Freshman program, with the play "Good Medicine" a prominent feature. This year, Richard Goff was elected president. Our class rings and pins now identify our members everywhere. YVe are again prominent in athletics. lWany of our number are still prominent in the orchestra and glee clubs. Several Juniors tried out for debating and one member, Kladeline Nixon, made the team. VVe have helped the Seniors sell tickets to raise money for their VVashington trip. Next year, we expect to take a VVashington trip ourselves. VVe want to be the largest and best class ever graduated from Adrian High School. And, with these aspirations, we look forward to our last and best year in High School.

Little ones and big ones, fat ones and lean ones, tall ones and short ones, were all going in a certain direction-to school. The Tired Old Worldls eyes glistened, for among them he observed a fine looking group, a group that swelled with pride and walked very straight for today they were to Z W 2 enter Adrian Senior High as Freshmen. 'AWouldn't it be fine?" sighed the Tired Old World, dreamily, "Wouldn't it, though ?" l'VVouldn't what be fine ?" asked the Average Citizen, dropping to the grass be- side the Tired Old World. "Just to go back to schoolf' sighed the Tired Old World, "and see there all the faces we have almost forgottenfl "For myself l'm glad it's overfl snapped the Average Citizen, 'il always wanted to escape schoolll' , "No, you didn,t,'l added the Tired Old VVorld, "You never will. You just keep on learning through life-it's a school, you know-but one doesnlt get report cards and vacations." "But one can't spend his entire lifei learning, and besides, after one has passed and passed from grade to grade what does he come to, anyway?" asked the Average Citizen. "The Great Examination Day, of course," answered the Tired Old World thoughtfully, "when there are no September sevenths and all is vacationf, The Average Citizen had to give in and walked away with a better understanding of life than he had ever before experienced. The Tired Old World looked after him and smiled, saying, "Just his daily lesson, l hope he studies it Well." Some months later the Tired Old VVorld was glancing over his notes and records when one drew his attention. It was a brief review or history of the Adrian High School Freshmen. lt showed that the Freshman Class had an enrollment that far surpassed any of previous years., that it had entered many school activities and had assisted in many ways to make the life of Senior High a success. 'lThat certainly is a record to be proud of," remarked the Tired Old VVorld, "l surely expect a great deal from them in the future life of Senior High-and in later personal life as Well," he added with wisdom.

It is a Three-Act Farce Written by John Emerson, the president E-'l of the Actors' Equity Association' of America. The tremendous success 9 W 2 of the play was largely due to the ability of the director, lVIiss Frances Thomas, and the loyal support of the cast. The action throughout the play takes place in the living room of the Simmons home in Sandusky, Ohio. lVIany chuckles and hearty laughs are encouraged by the little maneuvers of Mr. Simmons and his business partner, Chester Binney. lN'Ir. Simmons is intent upon a union between his daughter Ethel and Chester, and although numerous obstacles present themselves, he finally achieves his purpose and at the end of the third act peace reigns in the Simmons household.

The speaker was Perry lN'I. Hayden, of Tecumseh. Mr. Hayden, a recent graduate of the University of Michigan, was, during his Senior year, president of the Student Christian Association. He chose for the theme of his speech, "Where there is no vision, the people perish." The forcefulness of his delivery and the earnest- ness of his manner, together with the excellent ideas contained in his speech, made a deep impression upon all who heard him. Glendora Hurlbut sang a solo and Clara lVIcKeighan played. Both of these numbers were greatly enjoyed. Victor Keip, president of the Senior Class, presided over the program. IVIARDI GRAS The pupils who expect to go to VVashington were divided into groups with a captain for each, and throughout the year many activities were undertaken by the various groups. The big event of the year was the Klardi Gras given at the Masonic Temple, April 26, 27, 1926. Each group undertook one or more activities. A dinner was served each night before the carnival and besides the many booths there was a dance in the auditorium. BACCALAUREATE The Baccalaureate Services for the Class of 1926 were held on the evening of June thirteenth at the Presbyterian Church. The Reverend Edward llflontgomery delivered a very fine address which was greatly appreciated by the Seniors and their friends. SENIOR SEND-OFF The Class of 1927 delightfully entertained the Seniors at the annual Send-Off on the evening of June fifteenth. The dinner was served at the lflasonic Temple. lm- mediately following the dinner an entertainment was given. After the program, the guests spent the evening at dancing. The ball room was artistically decorated. CLASS DAY The annual Class Day exercises were given on the evening of June sixteenth. A very pleasing and interesting program was given by members of the Class of 1926. According to the custom of the school, the Gavel was presentedr to the Class of 1927 for a year's keeping. COMIVIENCEMENT The Commencement exercises were held on the evening of June seventeenth, at the Croswell Theatre. Dr. H. L. Feeman, President of Adrian College, was the speaker for the evening and Superintendent Griffey presented the diplomas to the members of the class.

SMITH gf: DTE call of Coach Shadford for material for the making of this year's foot- lgil ball team at the beginning of the season was enthusiastically responded to by the appearance of forty men on the practice field, all eager to gain a position on the team. Thirteen letter men remained from last year's successful squad and 2 the entrance of several men from other schools whose football records made them promising candidates for the Adrian team, predicted a successful campaign. Keen, but friendly rivalry was shown by the men throughout the entire season. Not one of they forty candidates could be classed as heavy. The problem then that faced Coach Shadford was the moulding of a team which could use its football intellect. Much time was given to the fundamental elements of football and the coach did his best to teach each man how to outvvit his adversary. VVhen the team was finally selected it was not a heavy, formidable one, but a group of men, strong, quick and able to think rapidly at a critical moment. ln all the games that were played, either when gaining a victory, or going down to defeat, a fighting spirit was shown which is the most essential characteristic of a good team. The first game of the season was played in Adrian with Tecumseh, the county champions for 1925-'26, Adrian played consistent football, limiting her plays to line plunges, end-runs and punts. Tecumseh, dying hard, was unable to gain a first down and received the small end of a 39-0 score. The second game was also played in Adrian with lkfarshall. An aerial attack in the first half gave Adrian a 13 point lead and gave her an opportunity to try out some other plays that would be used later in the season without danger of losing the game. The visitors received their only tally on a well executed cross buck in the final period. The final score was Adrian 19, Nlarshall 6. The next week Adrian journeyed to Ann Arbor with the grim determination to do her best against the larger school. The score shows that the fighting spirit was displayed in this game. Adrian was forced to play a great part of the game on the defensive and the excellent punts of our fullback kept the ball in safe territory. Ann Arbor received the one break of the game which accounted for the only score, 7-0. Following the Ann Arbor game, Adrian met Coldwater on the home field. Adrian still smarting from the defeat of the previous year, avenged herself by whipping her opponent 27-0. On a field of mud, Adrian next faced Detroit South Eastern. The visitors scored a place kick in the early part of the game after the officials had given them two oppor- tunities. Although the Adrian players recovered many fumbles, and once the Adrian captain broke away and ran with the ball nearly to the visitors' goal line before he was tackled, it was too slippery to advance the ball. Score, Detroit South Eastern 3, Adrian O. The most exciting game on the schedule was played at Sturgis. In the first quarter, Adrian easily scored a touchdown. Sturgis came back in the second period after scoring on a long pass over the goal line. VVhen the tvvo teams lined up for The SENIOR SICKLE 1926 mf s - ww the second half, one could not help but notice the set and determined faces of the players. Sturgis scored a drop kick. With but three minutes to play Adrian took time out and talked the situation over. Then from her own five yard line the blue and white machine began her advance down the field to victory and the game' ended- Adrian 14-Sturgis 10. Adrian next played at Hudson and easily defeated her 62-0. Backed by a host of rooters, Adrian next faced Monroe at the rival city. After two spectacular runs by the opponents' quarterback, Monroe claimed a 14-O victo-ry. Congratulations to Monroe. As a climax to a successful season, a game was arranged with the alumni of Adrian High School. All former football players of the school were invited to partici- pate Thanksgiving morning. After a parade through the down town districts to the football field and after a comical preliminary practice, the game started. Graduates from the class of 1898 played side by side with those of 1925. All high school men who had stayed throughout the season were. allowed to play in this game. The so-called youngsters finally emerged victors. Score, Alumni 6, High School 12. Adrian won six games and lost three, scoring 173 points to her opponent's -I-6. Adrian High School owes much of its splendid athletic history to Coach Shadford and appreciates the results of his labors. A THE TEAM Captain Claude Carpenter played his third and last year at center. Not only being an accurate passer and a sure tackler, he was also a terror to opponents' lines and his smashing attacks were an inspiration to his team mates. Fisher, captain elect, played guard. Fred's fighting spirit which would never say die, often brought the team a victory where defeat seemed apparent. Fisher has our best wishes for 1927. Gruel played his second year at end, where he broke up interference easily and when he was unable to make the tackle himself, always turned the play in. Carlton Smith, who hails from Elyria, Ohio, started the season at guard but his tackling was so good that he was moved to tackle where he played an excellent game both on offense and defense. Temple, at guard, played a fighting game and his ability at recovering fumbles made him invaluable to the team. VVeatherbee, a tackle, was a bulwark of strength on the line of forwards. He had unlimited endurance and great things are expected of him in the future. Weiidell Smith played his second year at end. Murphy acted as general for the team for his fourth year. At quarterback, his quick and wise decisions for the right play at the right time brought the team many victories. Beck, a southpaw, played fullback and was a triple-threat man. He was also a furious tackler and a wonderful receiver of passes. For two years he played in every scheduled game without a time out. Jackson, halfback, was formerly a tackle, but because of his unusual ability to block and punt, he was shifted to the backfield. He was a sure tackler and when given the ball, could always hit the line for a gain. This is Jackson's third and last year.

VVe hope Dick will have better luck next year. Baldwin played guard. He was a strong defensive man and could take his man out on the offensive. Wagner, center, was a hard worker and one who could talk it up. Hornby played his second year at tackle. Praise should be given him for the way he withstood the battering attacks of his adversaries. Other men of the team deserve their share of praise and it is the desire of the graduating football men that they raise the standard of athletics even higher than it is now. The second team is deserving of much credit. They received knocks and bumps and no thanks and only had the satisfaction of seeing the first team develop into a strong one by the strong opposition that they gave them in scrimmage. Walter Bohn, the manager, has the thanks of the team for his services. His work and faith in the team are appreciated both by the school and the coach. THE SCHEDULE Sept. Tecumseh -- --- ......

The floor had been freshly oiled and was very slippery and no decision could be reached by the coach as to the players' ability. Again all candidates were sent in. Adrian finally emerged victor 22-6. The nextf week Adrian faced Ann Arbor, a leading contender for the State championship. The game was closely played but Adrian lacked the skill to put the ball through the net and lost 11-2-1. By the next week, Adrian was a much stronger team. lllany of her faults had been corrected by strenuous practice and a few more plays had been introduced by the coach. Coldwater went down to defeat at her hands 30-11. Adrian next played Ypsilanti and easily won by a 39-9 score. The Adrian defense was particularly good. Ralph Taylor, a former member of our school, cap- tained the Ypsilanti team. hlindful of the defeat of the previous year at the hands of lllarshall, Adrian went to the rival city prepared for a stiff battle and got it. The first quarter ended, before the Adrian players could rally a score and Marshall was leading by 12 points. The second quarter Adrian made 1-l points and tied the score. ln the second half, first one team would be ahead and then the other but when the final whistle blew Nlarshall had been vanquished 27-21. Players and fans agreed that this was the fastest and the cleanest game of the season, having been played without a substitution on either side. On Feb. 10, lllorenci came to Adrian and went home defeated -17-16. Birmingham was next beaten on her home floor 33-13. The second game with Tecumseh was played on Feb. 17. Tecumseh now possessed a much improved team and floor. Score: Tecumseh 93 Adrian 29. Hudson visited us the next week. Hudson 165 Adrian -17. Pontiac, smarting under the defeat at the tournament of 1925, determined to beat the Adrian five. Although the Blue and White were unaccustomed to playing on large courts they conformed to the conditions and defeated the larger school 28-12. The coming game with Metamora had long been heralded as the hardest one on the schedule. The Ohio school had lost but one game throughout the season and1 had already won a tournament in her class. The first half ended with Adrian six baskets behind but again she proved her ability to score in a pinch and tied the game just as The SENIOR SICKLE 1926 MMM.. .gg . ggggg. gggg g.ggf.Mg irf'J the whistle blew. ln the overtime game both schools alternately scored. Final score: Metamora 275 Adrian 28. The second game with Morerici was played there on March 12. Score: lVlorenci 229 Adrian 27. The High School defeated the Alumni the following week -I-6-22. Lansing was drawn by Adrian at the tournament which was held in Ann Arbor. The game was slow and tiresome, neither team showing ability to score. The work of the Adrian guards was commendable but the team lacked her former tallying prowess. The game ended Lansing 15g Adrian 13g thus ending the tournament for Adrian and completing her season. The team appreciates the value of their coach and his intelligent and considerate manner of handling the men. Also much credit is due to Melvin Beebe, the manager, who was a member of last year's team and who has not only had a keen interest in the fellows but who has carried out the financial part most successfully. THE TEAM Glennis VanAuker played his second year at the tip-off position. Not once during the entire season was he outjumped. VanAuker was also a consistent scorer. Harold Patchett, a forward, played good basketball and seemed to be able to score almost at will. He broke speedily and handled the ball easily. Captain VVendell Smith played at either the forward or center position. Paul Howe, captain-elect, played at a guard position and his fighting spirit often turned a seemingly defeat to victory. 'fShiek" has our best wishes for 1927. Richard Beck held down his position as guard for the third year. Being a remarkable defense player, he often worked the ball down the floor and put it through the net. Beck's experience was a great aid to the team. Frederick Fisher, a guard, had a remarkable eye for making baskets at a distance and was a valuable man for the team. Leland Stevenson, forward, although hindered by a late start, added many scores. Stevenson is known as one of the best basketball players in the state. Ray Hanover played guard and it was most unusual for his man to get away for a basket. The other men participated in the games and much is expected of them in the future. A new system was introduced by Coach Shadford this year. Games were scheduled for the Reserves and they often accompanied the team on its trips. They did not lose a game and always gave the first team a good scrimmage.

SMITH gfzimdg EATHER conditions prevented early spring practice this year and. the !l men met only once before playing the first scheduled game. The opening game of the season found the nine at Hlissfield where they gave a very creditable showing. Following Coach Shadfordls instructions gig the Adrian pitcher threw nothing but straight balls because of the danger if W 2 of injuring his arm for the rest of the season. The more experienced Bliss- field team was able to bunch its hits and won 10-3. The next week Adrian went to lVIetamora with a much' stronger team and. played in a most commendable fashion. The score up to the ninth inning was four all, but in that frame Adrian made two runs. Score: Metamora 4-5 Adrian 6. At lvlorenci a contest was staged to see who could hit the ball the harder. The Adrian men showed themselves to be all sluggers and returned home triumphant. lllorenci 9 3Adrian 15. The second game with Blissfield was played at Adrian. Adrian now proved herself dangerous to the county champions. The game was closely contested through- out and in the ninth inning Adrian staged a rally only to die with two men on bases.

' At the time that this account goes to press several scheduled games remain yet to be played and a successful outcome of the season is assured by the way the well-oiled Adrian machine is now working.

Although the Seniors did not retain their title as Champions they deserve to be complimented for the intense interest they displayed in each Little can be said of the Juniors on account of the few games they played. Their victory over the faculty, however, established a good reputation for them. The Frosh produced a team, of which they can be proud.

One notable thing was accomplished by the Athletic Association this year. The football letters are now to be two inches larger. This certainly will show up better for Adrian High School. The baseball manager, Frederick Fisher, has proved very competent, and David Curtis, the track manager, has showed himself to be very efhcient. The last word is for our yell-leaders.

Under the capable instruction of Miss Frances Thomas, debating was raised to a position of prominence never -"TEE before occupied among the scholastic contests. When the call for debaters fix , sounded last October, many pupils responded and out of this number T -E eight were chosen. Adrian as usual entered the Michigan High School , f N5 fi JQ ff sl Heh xl. so-my 1' alll' rw 1 Iv 1, s. ig imp' :Sag f 'wi 5 Debating League. The question debated was, Resolved: That the Proposed Child Labor Amendment to the National Constitution should be Adopted by the United States. The aihrmative team consisted of Madeline Nixon, Hazelle Somerville and Burr Allen, with Gwendolyn Bancroft as alternate. The first debate was with Hills- dale and was a pronounced success, the score being three to one in favor of Adrian. Though not showing the polish of experienced debaters, the contest nevertheless showed the time and effort which both llfiss Thomas and the team had expended on it. Due to illness, the personnel of the team was changed somewhat for the next debate with lwonroe, as Gwendolyn Bancroft took the place of Hazelle Somerville. Though the decision of this second debate was not as favorable as it might have been, still Adrian upheld its side of the question well against its more experienced opponents. Besides these two State League debates, the :affirmative team met both Ann Arbor and Britton in practice debates. NEGATIVE TEAM EVTTNZ5 HE negative team was composed of Tom Hoover, hlary VVilson, and - - i . , , . up fb Earl Young, with Gerald Downer as alternate. lhe debating season bv ,-' v . was opened when Adrian met Hudson and although they were defeated 'f'v"I cr' . . . . . it was a hard won victory for Hudson. 'The next debate with Blissheld showed the dauntless spirit of the team and the long weary hours of ' ff -- - . . . . 2 W 3 coaching which it underwent. The score of this debate was three to one in favor of Adrian. After the two regular debates, practice contests were held with Tecumseh and Ann Arbor. lN'Iore enthusiasm and interest was shown in debating this year than ever before and it is hoped that this will increase as time goes on. Taking all things into consideration, the debating work this year was a great' success and with two victories this year, the future looks bright for Adrian High School in the lllichigan Debating League.

The organiza- tion was divided into various groups, each one backing some organization in the school and group chairmen were elected. The supporters of the v f basketball team were especially active in selling candy and helping to bring 'MQ f ta wi.. Ylihz- f S ,, Q 'i I 4 large crowds to the games. NVith this new plan, it was possible for the Hpepl' of the girls to touch every branch of school activity. Gwing to the preparations for the Vlfashington trip, it was thought inadvisable to give a Carnival. At each pep meeting before a game, one of the girls from the Pep Society gave a speech-fthis livened things considerablyj. The girls who supported debating usually attended the debates in a body. Miss Green, as our faculty adviser, never failed to give us the benefit of her inspiration and the wealth of good ideas which she is known to possess. VVe hope that the girls will keep up the good work next year in a way which will make the other organizations look to their laurels. VVe, the Seniors of Adrian High School, wish to express our thanks to Mr. Angell, the manager of the Croswell Theatre, who has so kindly given, us one-half of the money we have obtained from selling tickets to moving pictures at his theatre. He has certainly helped us on our way to VVashington. The parents and friends who bought these tickets are also given our deepest thanks. The dinner given the Seniors by the Rotarians and the Exchangites at the Masonic Temple, Ihlay 6, was greatly enjoyed and a deep impression was made by the speaker, Mr. Edward Kelsey, of Toledo, Ohio.
