PARENT TEACHERS ASSOCIATION
One of the organizations which has helped boost our school this
year is the Parent Teachers Association. It came into being about
Nov. 14, 1922, elected Mr. Swan as president, and since then has had
some interesting meetings. The purpose of this association is to bring
together the parents and teachers into closer co-operation. Such sub-
jects as the noon lunch, library facilities, etc., are discussed. Several
times the high school has been called upon to furnish entertainments
for these programs which are held once a. month. The Glee Club,
orchestra, and girls basket ball teams have all appeared in their turn.,
Feeling that the cause of such an organization will strengthen and
improve our school in a very large measure, we wish them the best
BEWARE! THE TEACHERS!
I know a system rare to find
For if they find you fail to mind,
Trust them not,
They will demerit thee.
If ever you happen to t-urn around,
They give a side glance and frown,
Trust them not,
They will demerit thee.
If up the stairs by two steps you go,
It takes your grades down mighty low,
Trust them not,
They will demerit thee.
Whenever you happen to whisper or stare,
You get your report card, but there's nothing there,
Trust them not,
They will demerit thee.

The Class of '23 began their educational career in 1910. Of the
large number who started to-gether there are now in the class Elsie
Johnson, Sibyl McCorkell, Izetta Kelly, Inez Cobb, and Philip March.
This class began to make a name for itself when it was in the
third grade, the principal event of the year being the presentation of
the "Tom Thumb Wedding." When in the fifth grade, a new pupil
entered who was Clifford Aalfs, and of course having a boy from the
country caused much excitement. In the seventh year we lost Izetta
Kelly from our class but she couldn't stay and returned in her ,Junior
year to finish high school with her classmates. In the eighth grade,
Anita and Everett entered. That year, the class was divided into two
well organized Literary Societies.
When we became freshies in High School, there was a class of
thirty: but some were not as persevering as others until now only
half that remain. All through the four years of H. S. our class has
been well represented in every activity. Some of the best men in
Foot Ball, Basket Ball, and Base Ball teams always came from the
class of '23, and our girls always represented .us admirably on the girls
Basket Ball team. Declamatory Contests must not be overlooked as
We were always among the first and in our Junior year, the winners
were all from our class.
Social events have not been lacking in the activities of the class.
In our Freshman year we had parties at the homes of Clifford Aalfs
and Edith Nelson. In our Sophomore year at Elsie Johnson's and
Beryle Murphy's. The big event of the Junior year was the Junior-
Senior banquet, which, with the help of Misses Gillet and Zimmerman,
we made very successful. Other parties during the year were at the
homes of Izetta Kelly and Lovina Allison. In this, our Senior year, we
had a farewell party on Alice Hammer at the March home and a ban-
quet for the boys at the Allison home, while the boys, with the aid of
their mothers, entertained us royally in the home of Philip March.
Now, as a climax to our high school career, we are looking forward to
the Junior-Senior banquet, the class play, class day, and last but not

What a short time ago it seems,
When we looked with longing eye
On the elderly students of our dreams,
Who took our place on high.
How We looked up to those stately scholars,
And thought how lovely 'twould be,
When we should be up there with honors,
Starting on life's youthful sea.
In those days our future looked long
As we wondered about our career,
When we reached the end of life's long song,
That is ebbing from us each year.
But now we've attained that desire,
Our hearts are still longing to see
If our ambition is tied to a flier,-
And what that ambition will be.
We know we're gathered to scatter,
Those good times no longer will be.
So careless-for nothing did matter-
In those happy old school days so free.
We must bid good-bye to the school room,
And to halls we have often oppressed,
To the teachers' sad frowning of gloom,
Good-bye exams, themes, and tests!
Yet duty is our obligation,
And truthfulness our friend,
Success we'll make from education,-
Then to God we trust for our end.

CLASS WILL OF 1923

As thc school year of '23 draws to a c-lose, the seniors, we know, will all lm
planning their future. lt is quite interesting to know where and what our honored
incnihers will lic doing ten years hence.
Not Iiaving thc power lnyscll' of dirining so far into the future, I was greatly
dcliglitcd one day, not long ago to meet a miraculous personagc, who was gifted with
that insight. She was holding consultation at appointed hours in a reception room of
the Mart'n Hotel, Sioux City at the exhorbitant price of ten dollars an hour. I was
admitted to learn the fates of our Senior class.
Leading me into a dark room with mirrored walls, I was designated a chair
just opposite the mystic person, You will of course pardon my curiosity in regard to
nn' personal welfare as I could lnirclly wait for her to begin her disclosure.
She -had a small sphere with which she worked. After some minutes she asked
me to keep my eyes on the glass mirror and then began revealing the fates of my
The first was our old class president, Lovina. She said she coulld see her in
an orphan's home as the matron with a large number of small children around her.
She next revealed Clifford Aalfs, who was in the kitchen of his home, a
large checked apron on, washing dislhes with two little boys and a small girl pulling
at his apron strings, while his wife, all dressed for club, was giving orders.
I was quite surprised when she said she could see Phil delving in books in
Oxford University, working upon a masters degree..
I could hardly supress a simile at finding Kelly an old maid school teaclher,
jacking up several handsome, yet unruly school boys.
Duc to deploring financial conditions Anita appeared to be Chiok's cook as
well as stenc grapher.
Old Happy Coyle had taken a course at Harvard and was now collecting bugs
for some Institute of Bugology in New York.
The rnce demure Inez appeared to 'be walking down the street of Chicago, a
charming society flapper.
A Sibyl was staging in one of the most popular movies of the day as leading lady.
Orley, a very pious looking man, "the fuxturistf' reported to be preaching in one
of the largest churches of San Francisco, highly esteemed and loved by his parish.
Muriel I see her just appearing in a large circus tent as "bingo's jazz baby."
And Edith Nelson tihe happy wife of a farmer, cheerfully feeding the chickens and
milking the cows to help her loving husband.
Elsie Johnson is in New York managing a flaming school and one of the besl
teachers of her kind in the city.
Alpiha we see in Canada, slinging flapjacks for a large camp of Canadian
Richard Kyle seems to have migrated southward and is the "Shiek of Alabamf'
Still watching with intense interest the mirrored sphere, I was much surprised
at seeing myself settled in a similar apartment as the one I now occupy, revealing
like pictures of the future to other inquisitive characters.

Best class everHYes Siree!
When we march to class in line,
Freshies say, "Gee, they look fine!"
We've got the whole bunch at our feet-
Yes, that's a fact-we can't be beat.
For if there's any work to do
We're right at itfpeppy too.
Now, Who's the life of Akron High?
No one elseellovina-Why?
The Way she gets arolund the boys,
'Tis nothing slow, it just annoys
Us girls to see so popular a Miss as she!
There's Kelly too-the Physics shark,
Works in the "Lab" till after dark.
An all around girl, we must agree-
One like her you seldom see. V
Anita Maynard's the girl with the eyes
That never fail to vamp the "guys"
She likes them all4yes very Well,
Especially Chick, but "you never can tell."
There's pretty Edith Nelson, too,
A shark at basket ball 'tis true:
Bobbed hair, goloshes, smile and all,
No wonder all the boys do fall!
Elsie Johnson, the bright little girl,
When it comes to studying-she's a whirl,
But oh! she's spoken for, they say,
And how she likes that Ford Coupe!
Gladys hails from a Montana school
And take it from me she's nobody's fool!
She's always willing to do her best
And she's the girl to stand the test.

And anyone might be proud of her heart. 5

CLASS HISTORY OF '24
In the fall of 1920 the class of '24 entered upon our first year of
a brilliant High School career. We then had an idea that we would
take the school by storm. Our success as a class has been gradual
and, as we slowly climbed, we have built a foundation so strong that
it cannot be shaken down. Our class is not built upon the shifting
sands of sudden success, but upon the firm rock of supremacy.
Our first year in high school was spent in getting our bearings.
In other words, surveying the land on which our tower was to be built.
We then began laying our foundation which is proving solid.
In the second year, we built the frame work of our tower. It
was a frame to go with our foundation. A success in some new activi-
ties added another steel girdle to our lower. In social life, athletics,
Dramatics and other activities we ranked first after the best.
Our third year is being spent in finishing up our tower. We are
giving more to athletics than ever before. The Senior boys beat us in
basket ball but we won from the Senior girls. We also spend much
of our time in dramatic and social life.
Next year we will complete this tower, and it will stand as a
monument of our great work.
When we go through the door for the last time, the school house
will look down on us and with a smile say, "Well done, my children,
It was held Thursday night, Nov. 9. 1922 and turned out to be
one of the biggest in the school yet.
The beautiful bathing girls in the swimming match drew a large
per cent of the male gathering. It even drew more than the 'l'men
only" booth. -
The fish pond had to be re-stocked with all kinds of fishes be-
fore the evening was half over.
The hunger of the joy seekers was satisfied at the Hot Dog
stand. While the more dignified ones were satisfied with tea served
by beautiful Japanese ladies in very dainty and well decorated rooms.
Arrests were made quite frequently by two heavy set cops--
"Swede and Cross."
Those who wanted their fortunes told, 'were surely satisfied with
the line that the keen gypsy gave them.

Secretary and Treasurer-fOma Ogden ,
We are the hardest worked class in the building. Geometry,
English II, Ancient History, Manual Training and Domestic Science
are our troubles. However, our teachers like us, even if We don't spend
all our shining moments bent over booksg so life is not so unbearable
as it might be.
As to parties, it is true we have passed them up, but not being
fortune tellers, we have never been able to see so clearly into the
future as to tell the faculty just what We are going to do and how
everything would turn out. That's because We are conscientious and
never make rash promises.

WE SOPHS OF 1923
The most rembumptious bunch are we,
That ever dared come boldly nigh
The portals of our Akron High.
It is our greatest pride to know,
At least we're not considered slow,
The envy of all classis here.
As for our pepg and worse, we fear
The faculty despair this set to teach
Or 'ere our ivory craniums to reach.
Illustrious have taken root
In this class of our institute.
Among our group of shining lights
Is Oather Cummins, who put up such fights
For A. H. S. its games to win.
But Bernice helps our foes to trim:
Pep she's got up to the brim.
There's Conny Rielly, too, you know,
Who is ever ready to blow and crow,
Thus brightening many a dreary day,
With his foolishness banishing care away.
In short, there are so many shining lights,
That will some day reach iunthought of heights--
Whose names down through the ages
Shall ador the history pages. ,
That we must stop:
But you shall hear more of this noble crop
When in nineteen twenty-five
Will Seniors be of Akron High.

The football season of Akron High opened a few days after
school began. About sixteen men were out for practice and Coach
Collins put them through a series of Work-outs. The boys were greatly
handicapped, having practically no experience in the football line.
The High School played the first game on the Akron field with
Elk Point, October 17. Much enthusiasm was manifested by the stu-
dent body and a fake parade was staged at noon. The game was called
at 4 o'clock and a hard battle was fought on both sides, holding the
suspense of the audience throughout the game. The battle ended in a
tie, 13 to 13, b-ut we hope to settle this in the future.
The next game was staged at Orange City against the "wooden
shoesw of that place. Our opponents greatly outweighed the home
team, but we clearly out-classeld them in advancing the ball. The team
showed good fight but full-back Metz was handicapped with a sprained
ankle. Cross, playing right half, made some great line smashes, and
March, playing end, made a pretty catch that advanced the ball to the
ten yard line, which resulted in a touchdown. Both of Akron's touch-
downs were made in the last quarter and we were going for the third
when the whistle blew. The final score was 12 to 18 in favor of
The football men next journeyed to Beresford and were accom-
panied by carloads of boosters. The Beresford men were much heav-
ier and more experienced: consequently, We were defeated 19 to 6. The
boys made good gains carrying the ball but were Weak on defense.
Akron's touchdown came in the first quarter but they failed to score
The Akron men met with defeat at the hands of the fast Ver-
milion eleven at that place, the score being 46 to 6. The Akron fellows
showed good spirit and fight throughout the game. Good headwork
was displayed by quarter-back, Aalfs, in an end run and Cross com-
pleted a long pass to March who was off for a touchdown. We should
feel proud of our team as they were the second team to cross the goal
line of the championship Vermilion team this year.
On Thanksgiving Day, the team played it's hardest and best
game of the season at Rock Valley. The day was very unpleasant, being
cold and windy, but it did not jar the old fight of the gang. Every
man on the team was going his best and all had the old "fighting
determination." The line held like a wall, giving the backfield time
to develop it's plays. Passing was difficult against the wind but Cross
heaved some nice ones- No one man starred for Akron, but all played
the brand of football that spells defeat for many teams next season.

GIRLS BASKET BALL
With the opening of the new gym, the girls started practicing
for basket ball in preparation for developing a team-the first girls
Basket Ball team Akron has had for two years.
Miss Pearl McKellar, acting as coach showed that she was
there with the goods from the start, and about thirty girls came out
to practice. The Hrst weeks were spent in drill and exercises to put
the girls in good physical condition. Next the fundamentals of the
game as well as characteristic positions and shots were learned before
there was any attempt made at scrimmage.
JA good spirit was manifested by all the girls though the sched-
ule proved to be a disappointment, due to very few games. At, an
early date the girls organized and elected Dorothy Johnson, captain,
Gladys Harris, treasurer: and Lovina Allison, secretary.
The first game took place at Vermilion, where the girls put up
a good fight, though all but two were playing their first game. Akron
scored first but Vermilion gained in the last half.
The next game was at Akron with the Alcester sextet. The
opposing teams showed real teamwork but found they were equally
matched by the Akron girls. Through the generalship of their jump-
ing center, their victory was made possible.
Our girls met the Liberty team at Liberty in the third game
and managed to get away with the bacon, by a good margin. Liberty
returned the game which was the last of the season. The girls put .up
a much stronger game than ever before but Dorothy Johnson was our
star forward, hit her true stride and the game ended 52 to 2 in o-ur
The final winding came for the girls at an invitation tourna-
ment held at Hinton, Iowa, on March 10. Akron drew Hinton. The
game started out with a bang and ended with a tied score of 7 to 7.
.Trust as the final gun shot, one of the girls fowled and Hinton made a
free cast, thus gaining a victory by a score of 10 to 9.
There is good material for a team next year and, with this
years experience and coaching, a real winning team ought to be de-

The Alpha Society, which was organized in September, 1922,
was the first of three literary organizations- It has appeared on four
occasions during the year, presenting a Thanksgiving and New Year's
program which were very well carried out. The society has note
worthy talent in puiblic speaking. One of the members, Darrel John-

BETA SOCIETY ,
The Beta Society was organized in September, 1922, with a mem- I
bership of thirty-seven. This society is purely literary and has for its
purpose the promotion of the literary life in the high school. Our
Hrst program, which was given Oct. 27 had Hallowe'en traditions
as its principle theme. This Society was the first to have a debate and
we hope that this may be an incentive to keep up this work and per-
l.aps organize a debating society in the near future. l

Under the able leadership of Mrs. Burrill, assisted by Miss Hays
pianost, the girls glee club has come rapidly to the front this year.
Soon after being organized in the fall, they were called upon to sing
at the meetings of the high school literary societies. They have been
very much in demand and prepared a number of selections which were
presented at various occasions such as the Parents Teachers Associa-
tions, auxiliary aid, Preliminary and Sub-district Declamatory contest,
Christmas programs and commencement exercises.
Both two and three part voice work has been executed
satisfactorily, while several of the members have done commendable
duet work. We feel that, on the whole, the work of our glee club is
something of which to be proud of. The following selections are some
of those which met with good success.

Science instruction in the first year of high school does not aim primarily to
survey the entire field of nature in order that the student may decide which of the
special sciences he likes best and which he will omit. Nor should first year general
science be regarded as an introduction to, or, a foundation for the special science he
may later study. While general science should in a large measure accomplish both of
these results, it has a vastly more important function to perform. The primary func-
tion of first year science is to give as far as possible a rational, orderly, scientific un-
derstanding of the pupils enviroment to the end that he may, to some extent, at least
correctly interpret that enviroment and be master of it.
The course consists of a years work, class room work and labratory work. The
labratory work is purposed very largely for training in accuracy and secondy for
training in being able to reproduce in note book form that which they had worked out
Given in the second year of High School, the study of agriculture is purposed
to fulfil two requirements, firstly, because of the fact that this is really a rural com-
munity and agriculture is the main vacationg purpose of acquainting the students with
a general knowledge of the farm and its environmentg secondly to meet the requirements
of the state for teaching and preparation of teachers thru the Normal training course.
Sometimes the study of agriculture is criticized on the ground that it is attempting to
make farm men and farm women out of students. This is just as erroneous as to say,
that the study of Physiology attempts to make doctors of students. The study of agri-
culture does attempt to replace that ignorance students have of rural communities and
This work consists of class work and labratory work, the latter being largely out-
door work and is made as practical as faculities will allow.
Physics is the summary of a part of human experience. No subject in the secon-
dary school course of study to teach the student life more closely then elementary Physics
No subject is better fitted to develop the reasoning powers or cultivate the uncommon
faculty known as common sense. From the time the pupil opens the water faucet in
the morning until he snaps off the electric light at night he is constantly applying or
observing some of the laws of Physics. These principles may be connected with the
automobile, the radio, motion pictures or they may have to do with the more prosaic
vvheelbarron, pump in the yard, the buck saw or the washing machine run by human
force. Although the application for Physics are so common, yet any attempt of the
average high school student to master the essentials of the subject is certain to meet
with many real difficulties. For this reason great care must be taken to use simple
language in explaining the fundamental principals oi' Physics and in making the illu-
strationsnatural both in subject matter and through devices used to aid the under-
standing, must be chosen in special reference to its appeal to the young mind. Large
portions of thc subject matters deal with knowledge already possessed by the student
of high school age, and nothing is more appealing to him than the feeling that this in-
formation is to be made use of. The experiment work is not so much emphasized for
accuracy as for experience.
The Labratory in the middle west part of the building is provided with gas water,
light, and electricity. The equipment now consists of over two hundred dollars worth.
The equipment in the natural science department will be sufficient to meet the needs
of a first class course.

This branch of vocational training in the Akron High School housed within its
new quarters and with its ample equipment is now prepared to meet the three fold re-
quirements of its purpose in a high school course of study: To give practical training
to those whose homes do not for one reason or anot-her provide such training. To
bridge over the abrupt ascensu in High School too often made uninviting when four
cold academic studies are offered the first year: To provide training and preparation
to meet the demands of thestate for the Normal Training course for teaching.
The Domestic Science occupies the south end of the third floor in the new build-
ing and consists of a large sewing room in the southeast corner, a large kitchen in the
southwest, and a small serving room between the two on the south. Also between the
sewing room and kitchen is a pantry with built in cupboards and drawers. All these
rooms are lighted, ample in size and well arranged.
The equipment consists of five Whits rotary drop head sewing machinesg five
fond student sewing taiblesg ironing board and electric iron for the sewing room. The
kitchen has ten double and five single blow gas burner stovesg four ovens, kitcihen cabi-
nets for eight girlsg a double sink with cold and hot water tapsg a full set of both
china and kitchen ware.
The course of study provides for a. full years work in the ninth grade: one semester
for sewing including the projects, stitching, button hole making, garment fitting,
marking, and pressing.
The other semester of kitchen work covers the ground giving training in the
preparation of practical dishes of food, study of the elements of food and their valuesg
care of the kitchen and utensils and above all the orderly arrangement of all connec-
ted with the kitchen.
As an incentive to proficiency in this branch of study the class will be given
opportunity to exhibit their projects of the sewing semester and their ability in de-
signing and practical drcssmaking near the end of the semester.
As the department was somewhat limited on the amount of work that could be
done during the first few days of school on account of lack of tools, the students were
put to work removing doors which did not fit. The doors were dressed down and the
hinges set so they worked easily.
It was not long until the school board secured all necessary tools such as a band
saw, power emery, and a motor to run the machine. Besides the power machinery all
hand tools that were needed were secured. With these additions it is as well an equipped
shop as any in the state for a town of this size. ,
The shop now being equipped and the tools put in racks where the boys could find
them, they were now ready to go to work. The ninth grade started the year by making
taborets which they finished with very promising results for the next pieces. As the
eleventh grade had but one half year they were allowed to go ahead after making a few
small pieces and make what they wanted to providing the project was not to hard for
the amount of training they had had.
The Manual training department did not close the door on the girls as three
Junior and three freshmen girls entered these classes. All of these girls did credible
work for the department.
Some of the numerous things which were made i11 manual training are: Cedar
chests, library tables, taborets, medicine cabinets, smoking stands, magazine racks,
hall trees, pedestals, card tables, and piano benches. All of these things in May High
One of the principal events of the winter was the fourth annual declamatory
contest. This year there were eight who contested for first place in their respective
classes. The progressives were as follows:

The World's Orator ....................... ---Paul Johnson

Pleasant Half Hour on the Beach .......-..... -. -.....---.-- Muriel Tolbolt
Paul delivered his selection, which portrayed Christ as the worlds orator very
admirably but Fahy was awarded first place in this class.
"A Full Measure of Devotion" which depicted the deep love of parents for their
son who would never return from the battlefield of France, was very well rendered by
Genevieve. Ofra credibly portrayed, "The T'hree Things", which were: Class pride
prejudice, and utter unbelief in God and Christianity, that during his experiences in
France the the American soldier found to be a detriment to his character. Tzetta was
awarded first honor in the dramatic class for the splendid rendiction of 'K'l'he Last
Word", Hermns had given up the name of God for wealth and honor and had lost it
when he needed it most to save the life of his son.
In the humorous class Margaret Clayton 1-elated how Priscilla stirred her wed-
ding cake with a stove lifter and approached the alter, wearing red bedroom slippers
and carrying a bar of every soap in place of her boquet. Muriel Talbot gave the audi-
ence an idea of the worries of the distracted motheifs caring for her family at the sea
shore. Slarrill "Took the Cakel' with his splendid impersonation of the little boy who
went to hunt bears, he did".
Mrs. Blanche R. Warren of Sioux City judged the contest and the winners re-
presented Akron in the Pre-sub-district contest. This was also held in Akron being rc-
presented by a group of enthusiasts, who accompanied their contestants heir. Trenton
carried away the honor in oratory, Hawarden in dramatic and Dari-ill the honors for
Akron by winning in humorous. He represented Akron at tahe sub-district contest at
Rock Valley in which nine towns competed for honors but lost to thosc from larger
We are glad to see that so many of our High School students realize the value
of the Declamatory training in public speaking and hopes they will continue the work
their work in their remaining years in high school as well as after leaving High School.

FAREWELL PARTY ON SENIORS
As every one knows, the Seniors are always a very ambitious bunch, and also
very thoughtful. No one will be surprised at their putting on a splendid little party
for one of their members, Alice Hammer. This took place at the home of Philip
March, Uctblwr ll, 1922 on a beautiful Wednesday evening, Many interesting games
were played and one in particular which is Charades. The boys just like them you know
wanted to play more clever little tricks on the girls consequently they formed one side
while the girls the other. However it is too tempting to omit all the tricks so a few will
be related. Getting personal. Evertt Coyle, had to hum to the tune of Yankee Doodle
for two solid minutes. lt surely was fun because you know Evertt really is a good
musician, so he says. Jesse Brown was made to roll a peanut across the room with
his nose. ltichard liyle or "Brother Kyle" as we know him did some very clever dan--
cing and displayed great genious for high kicking.
Soon alter this, delightful refreshments were served by the senior girls but for
some reason they refusecl to cat. much.
Before going home a, "Mock Wedding" was performed, which was very ainus-
ing. The bride, "Miss Alice llammer was robed in a beautiful silk veil donated by
Mrs. March. The groom, our Jesse Brown, was decorated with a handsome blue coat
donated by Mr. March. The minister Hev. Kyl seemed quite at ease as he Struted along
with a long loose gait.. Une would have thought a funeral instead of a wedding to hear
the screeching, crying. and wailing from the assembled relatives. The ceremony was
properly performed and the wedding ring slipped upon the patient finger. The
weeping was stopped and shortly after the joyful grouip was Uhomeward bound
each declaring an unusually happy evening well spent.
ANTI SLUMBER PARTY
Miss Alice llammer was also honored by a slumber party given at the Maynard
home on Saturday Oct. 14, 1922. Those present were: Alice Hammer, Carrie Akers,
lovina Allison, Hilda Horsehler, Desca Wallin, Margaret Burk, Evelyn Hors-
chler, Ella Lamoreau, Viola Maynard, lzetta Kelly and Anita Maynard. The former
were assembled at the hostess home by 8:30 o'clock. To get everyone interested a pea-
nut. hunt was proposed and many other games were played.
At 12:30 a midnight dinner was served, Alice gave a few parting words of fare-
well, which touched the ihearts of all present, after which the fortune of all were told.
As the evening advanced the enthusiasm increased, and along in the wee hours of
the morning it. was decided to make it a "Slumberless Party. The girls divided into
competitive groups and morning found most of their clothes scented with perfume from
the medicine cabinet as well as in many a knot and tangle.
Breakfast was served at 8:0i0 o'clock and, on returning home, the party was de-
clared a complete success.

A SURPRISE BANQUET
High School students are not supposed to gamble but the Senior boys and girls
did the next. thing to it. lt was at the time of the inter-class basketball tournament
when when basketball was coming into season. The senior girls made a vow that if
the senior boys should beat the junior team they would give them a banquet, and bhe
Loys agreed to do the same, but as you see the girls gave the banquet. This was given
at the Allison home on a Friday evening. The dinner was called for 8 o'clock but,
lgeing a class affair, it was decided not to be made too formal so only two courses
The first course consisted of breaded-pork-chops, creamed peas, mashed potatoes,
bread and butter, and hot chocolate, last but 11ot least came the class colors, yellow
and white, served as a desert. A dish of whipped cream with a slice of pineapple in
it and half a banana placed in this brought out the colors very cleverly. A bright red
cherry acted as the blaze of the candle. Fluffy cakes were also served. One article
was almost forgotten and that was the pickles. Brother Kyl and Mr. ll. l.. March,
seemed to be terribly bothered to see which was to get t.he last pickle. The party began
to get somewhat noisy so in order to divide the pickles evenly, either plate was divided
by a gold and white streamer, which was drawn up and tied directly over the table.
Yet in spite of this precaution, a few of the conspicious Senior boys had to rearrange
the streamers to suit themselves.
After each one had politely excused himself, the merry group took to playing
games and singing. The girls were very happily surprised at the excellent musical
ability of their class-mates.
Around mid-night the party adjournedg each one going his and her way.
Nothing serious was heard from the boys the next day. Consequently their dinner
must have gone well with them.

On a bright. evening, November 9, 1922, a carnival was given by the junior
class of the Akron High School, funds for which were to go toward the annual junior-
senior banquet. Many different side shows were erected some of which were,
"Swimming match between two girls", "A Trip Around the Moon," "The Only Ground
Hog in Captivityf' "The Missing Link,f' "Fortune Tellingj, "The Smallest Skelton in
Large quantities of pop corn balls, hot dogs, and hamburger sandwiches were
sold. Mr. Reaney acted as, 'fChief Cook," with the support of members from the junior
Meanwhile the cops were busy fining, pinching, and arresting everyone at the
least move of Misconduct. The faculty, with few exceptions, were very entertaining.
Miss McKellar, acting as the gray headed, old-fashioned, mother was seen taking her
mischievious children out for a whirl in the world. Miss Hays, fthe H. S. English
teacher J naturally acted as the squalling kid, and was pulled around in a little red
wagon. The other members were dressed as older children but. nevertheless were as
anxious as Dorothy herself to see all the sights. 'Could you feature Miss Edith Gillet
with her hair in curls, her skirts at least to her knees, and an all day sucker in her
mouth, yet it is all as it really Was. The whole evening was very well spent and light
refreshments were served in the tea room by the Chinese maidens from the junior
Blessings on thee little dame,
Bare backed girl with knees the same,
With thy turned up silken hose
And thy thin, transparent clothes,
With thy red lips, reddened more.
Smeared with lip stick from the store,
With that make up on thy face,
And thy bobbed hair jaunty graceg
From my heart I give thee joy,
Glad that I was born a boy.
Water is a wonderous blessing,
Good for washing face and ears,
Just the thing for making rivers
And surrounding ships and piers,
Nice for parking under bridges,
Swell for making rain

During the month of February, Bartley Ogden, of the junior class and his sis-
ter, O'ma., of the Sophomore class entertained their friends with a panty given at
their country home.
The happy group found their way to the Ogden home in packed Lizzies and
after :1 rattling good ride, the party arrived already for action. Entertainment con-
sisted of various games, dancing, and music. The orchestra was composed of talent
found among those present. Asthetic and square dancing were among the prominent
features of the evening. At eleven thirty a dainty two course luncheon was served,
after which a short time was spent in playing more games and the orchestra burst
forth with more lively tunes. Shortly after this they all expressed themselves as
having spent a most enjoyable evening and stepping into the waiting cars they slept
the weary miles away.
BACK TO THE DAYS OF OLD
Roller skating seems to be popular again especially with some of the Akron
Tom Boysi This fact was proven at a stag party given by Marie Rootg when -the lar-
ger portion of the prospective young women of Akron assembled at her home dressed
in Knickers and were soon off for a real skate. Main Street furnished the greatest
attraction as they formed an unbreakable line across the pavement, causing com-
motion enough to waken the Gods. Later on they returned to the Root home where
dancing and singing furnished entertainment for the remainder of the evening.
It is rumored that a few of the basket hall players found their way to the scene
of merriment and stole several, "good luck," kisses which we feel sure turned the
tables on them the following day at the Sioux City Tournament. A real feed was
enjoyed, and "Spike" Brown made the evening complete by furnishing free taxi
Another slumber party that means they generally turn out a crowing success, our
reason for having so many. This one certainly did, though the Hostess, Margaret
Burk, was somewhat disappointed at the failure of some of the basket ball girls to
appear, owing to their Hinton tournament trip. Diving for apples and other like
pranks were played as well as music, dancing, and telling of ghost stories' mid the
twilight shadows. Before the bedroom was converted into a hair dressing parlor that
would put the metropolitains out of business.
A most delightful dinner was served at some time between sunset and sunrise
and it is believed that the sandman forgot to visit the Patterson home that night. Jun-
ior-Senior Banquet, Baccalaurea, class play, and commencement are the beacon lights
to which the Senior Class are now centering their gaze, each bringing it's singular

our school days.

II I FR has no rival. You can duplicate Miller Made quality
MAi,i,' I at a greatly advanced price or you can buy other
FLUU' flour at Miller Made price but it will not be Miller
li Made quality.
Our location right in the wheat fields gives Aus an opportunity
to select. Our running expense is lower, perhaps, than any other mill
of the same size.
Our produce, therefore, comes to you as the greatest possible
value for the money yoiu spend for flour.
Investigat these statements.

FOR YOUR HEALTH
Do you know that your body is controlled by the nervous sys-
tem and that these nerves all come from the Spinal Cord? Do you
know that you have 24 movable vertebrae or bones in your spine that
can shut these nerves off and thereby causing disease? If you are
sick, come in and consult us.

What Did I Get Out of It?
Have you ever asked yo-urself that question after spending
more money than you knew you could afford?
It's not a selfish reflection, it's really your conscience
entering a protest against waste.
You don't feel that way when you put your money into an
interest-bearing account. You get out of it every penny you
put into it-plus interest.
