FOREWORD lt has been an arduous task to prepare this volume: yet, it has also been a pleasure. And why?

ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL 9 ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL ODE TO THE FACULTY Who is it that helps the students sog Did you ever stop to think? Who is it that helps our minds to grow, And lifts us as we sink? 'Tis the faculty pushing and urging us on 'Til the top of the ladder we gain, In the years of our life from our high school days. We'll see you've not taught us in vain. Without teachers the world would indeed be dull, For all men must teach in a way, But the faculty takes this up as a task, And teaches the truth every day. Although we are teachers it may not be By our actions we teach the right. For we sometimes teach evil, and sometimes teach good, While the faculty brings them to light. The students and faculty are as a houseg A house with a. foundation firm, The walls are the students tha.t may be weak, And leave at the end of a term, But the foundation, strong, stands through many a year, Though the walls break down and build newg The foundation, great, should be given a cheer, For the good and the worth that they do. -IVY DRAKE. 10 THE ASTRUM SCHOOL ALEDO HIGH Facult ,rg 1-oi. !!!

THE ASTRUM .49 qi 41 ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL x 42 923 I ALL SQUAD TB FOO THE ASTRUM THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL COACH CONSTANT Under the direction of Coach Constant A. H. S. turned out as good a football team as it has had for a number of years. He had to work hard as he had quite a. number of inexperienced men to train. Neverthe- less, he brought them through quite a suc- cessful season in good condition. Too much credit cannot be given to Coach Constant. 10-. LEO JOHNSON 1CaptainJ Capt. Johnson led the team through one of the most successful seasons that A. H. S. has had for years. For two years he has fought his way on the gridiron and he has given all that was in him. He was sure of his tackles and used his head to best ad- vantage. He was hard to beat at half- back and his loss will be greatly felt. .-01 RALPH SHEESE fCaptain-Electj Sheese was our plunging fullback. Ow- ing to lack of experience at the first of the season he was slowed down some, but he soon learned the game. He hit the line hard and made good gains off guard. He will be a valuable man on' the team next fall. -0- CARL ANDERSON Anderson was right there when it came to playing center. It was around him that the line was built. He found little difficulty in breaking through and getting the opponent before he started. He out-classed any man that played against him this year. He will be missed next fall. , -.Oi LARRY MORFORD Morford- was a remarkable end. He was an experienced player and was very success- ful in running down punts and breaking up plays. He was a hard tackler and it will thus be hard to find a better man to take his place on next year's team. .-0... FRANCIS JOHNSTON Johnston was handicapped at the begin- ning of the season through lack of exper- ience, but he developed into a wonderful guard. He was unable to be moved and tore an awful hole in the opposing line. His shoes will be hard to fill next year. ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL 44 VIRGIL ANDERSON Virgil was a real guard. No man was too big or too hard for him to handle. He was a fighter to the very finish and a bear at tackles and at recovering fumbles. With his two year's experience he should be one of the outstanding players next year. ..O-. WILLIAM HAWKS Hawks was our brainy and speedy little quarterback. He ran the team in an ex- cellent manner and was a hard man to stop in running back punts. It will be difficult to find a man of his speed and ability to run the team next year. .-O.. EDGAR RUSH Rush, a Freshman, has begun his athletic career in fine style. As the season ad- vanced he developed into a real tackle. He had the fighting Irish spirit and surely ought to tear things up next fall. ...Oi ROY STEPHENS Ted was a wicked man to carry the ball. H0 filled his position at halfback well and he made some long gains off tackle, He had a mean straight arm on end runs and was very hard to down. Next year Ted ought to be one of the stars on the team. 10... DALE FENDER Fender was a new man and therefore a little slow at the start. However, the coach worked with him and developed a. good tackle out of him. He has the bull-dog spirit and will show up strong next year. .-0.- LYLE BRADFORD Bradford easily captured the other end. He was noted for his speed and never fall- ed to get down the field on punts. He was especially good at breaking up runs: then too, he could be shifted to the backfield without weakening the team. He also is lost through graduation. THE ASTRUM THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL HARRY BROWN Brown was always ready to take his posi- tion at tackle. He was a hard fighter and was always ready to give his all for the A. H. S. Another Senior which means an- other loss for next year's squad. .-OQ. FRED ANDERSON Freddie was always ready to take his p'ace in the line. He could be put in with- out weakening the team a bit. He ought to be a main cog in the machine next fall. Lo.. ELWIN WHITNEY Whitney was also new at the gameg how- ever, he had that fighting spirit which all good football players have. If he orily had another year he would have been a star player. 107 HERBERT FISHER Fisher was the best trainer on the squad and he was ready to get in and fight any minute. Next year Fisher will probably take his stand in the gridiron as a regular player. -0- LEE FENDER Lee was small in size, but he deserves much credit for his peppy spirit. Lee is a Freshman and with three more years he should be a big factor in Aledo's coming elevens. I io.. ROY YERKEY Yerkey was also a line man. He was lacking a little in weight, yet whenever he got a chance he demonstrated that he had ability. Yerkey deserves honorable mention for what he did last fall. ALEDQ 1-ggqu scl-1001.

Much enthusiasm was aroused among the football fans of the county. The first quarter Alexis made good gains and at the end of the first quarter were within a few yards of the goal. The half ended with Alexis gaining 6 points. The last half was a harder fought battle than the first. Aledo showed strength by keeping Alexis from gaining any more points during the rest of the game. Alexis won, but it was no dis- grace for Aledo as she was beaten by one of the best teams in the state. EAST MOLINE 17, ALEDO 14 This game was held November Moline, the score being 17 to 14.

Most of the playing was done in the middle of the field, neither side being able to break through its opponents line. CORPUS CHRIST! 0, ALEDO 31 On October 12th, Corpus Christi was the attraction. The Galesburg lads could do nothing with the strong Aledo line. The first quarter ended 6 to 0 in favor of Aledo.

She was outclassed by the Aledo aggregation who in each quarter managed to pile up scores. It was quite an exciting game from the first as both teams did their utmost. Keithsburg went home with a defeat of 46 to 0. This was the last game of the season and the Aledo boys made a good job ending the season. THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL 48 THE ASTRUM THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL WILLIAM HAWKS The captain of this season's teamg he was always shifty and had plenty of fight and basket shooting ability. He is a sen- ior this year and will be missed in next year's line up. . ion- CLARENCE STEPHENS Ever since his Freshman year Clarence has been on the basketball teamg he was always full of pep and very efficient in handling the ball so as to score points. He is another man who leaves this year by graduation. -01. CARL ANDERSON The running guard who had the big fight for QA. H. S. ln this position he can hardly be outclassed as it is very hard for the op- ponent to get a shot when Carl is near at hand. He leaves another large hole to fill next year. -O.. VIRGIL ANDERSON tCaptain-Elelcty The standing guard who is right on the spot to grab the ball off the bankboard and throw it back in the other direction. He will be a great asset for next year's team. -0-- TED STEPHENS This is his freshman year and he has showed up remarkably well on the floor as a forward. His basket shooting ability has changed the course of many a game. He will be a good man for the teams in the next three Years. ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL 50 FRANCIS JOHNSTON Tarzan has gone to school at Reynolds for three preyious years and came to Aledo in his yast year. He has showed up well as a center and his absence next year will be felt. 10, LYLE NEWTON A speedy and shifty forward with a dead aim for the basket and always ready to do his part in the game. Next year he will be a good man at the forward position. ,0... NATHAN SABBATH At the forward position he is beyond cri- ticism due to his alertness and basket shoot- ing ability. He will be another good man on next year's basketball squad. 10- CHARLES SABBATH He is quick and full of action, ready at all times to lend his hand, in the games. He is another member who will take a part in next year's team. 10.1 TEDDY MOBERG A Sophomore this year who has the mak- ing of a good basket shooter. Although he did not play in any of the scheduled games he will make good timber for next year. THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL The Basketball team was very successful this season, winning eleven games out of nineteen. Aledo took the county tournament and also made a good record at the Rock Island district tournament. In all the games played the boys did remarkably well and at all the games held at home, the gymnasium was filled with a crowd full of peppy rooters. There four seniors on the team who have made high honors and their absence will be felt next year, but there remains other good players who will make next year even a more successful season. The players who graduate are: Clarence Stephens, Francis Johnston, William Hawks and Carl Anderson. For next year's squad there are: Virgil Anderson, Lyle Newton, Nathan Sabbath, Ted Stephens, Charlie Sabbath, Teddy Moberg, Donovan Pullen and others who should come out of the kinks next year. -0- SEASON'S RECORD Aledo 12, New Boston 14.

THE ASTRUM 55 ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH Years and years ago, when the Grecian people possessed the highest civilization of any country, there existed a belief among them, that somewhere on earth was a magic fountain of youth. The fountain perpetuated life and bestowed happiness to the ones who were lucky enough to find it and drink from its springs of sparkling water. We have learned from our ancient histories, and from the legends that have come down to us, that the Grecian people were a strong race. In battle they were hard to vanquish. Some of their esteemed leaders lived, as history tells us, to be hoary-headed men, and still retained the vigor of their youth. But had they drank from the waters of a so-called fountain of youth, whose waters were kept running by the mysterious legendary Gods of the Ancients? No such miracle existed. The secret was this: From the time of infancy, boys were trained in gym- nastics, so that they might take part in the tournaments, to which all the people flocked, to see them exhibit their strength and to out-do each other. But sports were not the only things which they had to know in those days. At the age of eighteen years, they were compelled to take a course of training in the army. The result of this rigid training was a race of strong, muscular men who wielded the battle-axes with a mighty swing. This physical training was not only for boys alone, but also the girls. They had their part in sports too, although they did not make public exhibitions. We know that the Greeks are a sturdy little race of people, and very strong for the size of their country and why? Because physical training made up a great part of the lives of their ancient fathers and mothers. That was their fountain of youth. There is no reason why the young people of today cannot be on equal standing with their Grecian brothers and sisters. In schools of America, the opportunity is given to every student to become as mentally and physically alert as it is possible. Compulsory physical training is a blessing, but perhaps the day will come when it will not have to be compulsory, especially among the higher grades. Students of Aledo high school, drink from this fountain of youth while it is within your reach and help make the coming generation fit to combat with the greatest forces of the world. --GLADYS MINTEER. ig., , ,th W k THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL Urganizatiion f A r' " ' f 4fSN Kr' f -le Ay!! -I 5 J ' A' HX, 3 1,1733 ig Q4 - f 4 V fn J, -4 22 W ifi Q 3 E Q.

It was the evening before Christmasg the snow had fallen steadily all day until the streets were blanketed with a. cover of soft, white, gleaming snow. Tommy was sitting by his window with his little curly head on his sister's lap. He was a cripple, and the doctors had once said that it was almost impossible for him to ever become entirely well, but in time by careful nursing he might be able to walk on crutches. Tommy, however, did not think he would ever be of any use to the rworld, and so he didn't care to become wellg in fact he sometimes wished for death as a welcome relief from his suffering. Now on this particular day Tommy happened to be in exactly that state of mind, Alice, his sister, was trying hard to cheer him, but Tommy was cross, and his pain was somewhat worse that evening. Finally Alice left him and went to prepare their supper. Just at this moment Tommy happened to look out of the window, and lo! what did he see? Just across the street stood a little old fashioned church, in front of which many happy children and older folks were gathering for an evening of merri- ment. Tommy was able to see through the window to one corner of the room, where there stood a stately Christmas tree, with its branches fairly sagging from the weight of the gifts, but the one thing that attracted Tommy's eye was a big shining star at the top of the tree. "Oh! sister come quick," exclaimed Tommy in an excited voice, "come and look at the purty tree in the old church." Alice looked, and the same sight came to her that had come to Tommy. All was still for a momentg then Alice felt Tommy's arms creep about her neck, and she was forced to turn away her head to keep him from seeing the tears in her eyes. "Sister dear, will you tell me what Christmas means, and about the purty star on the tree?" "Well," began Alice in a trembling voice, "You know that Christmas is the birthday of our good kind Jesus, Tommy, and-and-somehow I always think of Him whenever I see the beautiful stars shining away up there in heaven, for it was a star that guided the wise men to Jesus when He was in the manger." "Oh tell me more about him won't you?" pleaded Tommy. Then Alice told him in her simple, ignorant, childish way about the Christ ind his final crucifixion. When her story was finished Tommy lay still without speaking, and slowly, slowly, his sister's sweet smiling face faded from view, andla beautiful glittering star seemed to step out from the heavens and come right down to him. He watched it for a second: then beholdg a beautiful little fairy stepped out of the star, and beckoning for Tommy to follow she led the way through a beautiful golden gateway into a garden of glowing sunshine, and to his utter surprise he saw millions of little flowers in the form of stars blooming everywhere. At last they stopped before the largest and fairest flower in the garden. "This," said the fairy, "is the flower of sunshine, Tommy, and it means that- there is always sunshine in every little corner of darkness." Then the fairy knelt, plucked the flower and held it out to Tommy. As he reached out his to take it, fairy, garden, flower and all disappearedg then Tommy opened his eyeslffp find himself lying in his own plain little room. Q9 "Tommy, just see!" exclaimed Alice when she saw that he was awake. "This little THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL girl has brought you the grandest little Christmas tree with a pretty star, and it's all your own." Tommy opened wide his eyes at this and looked up at the sweetest little girl he had ever seen. "Why yer the fairy queen ain't yeg well lots o' thanks. Where is it Alice?" "Oh!" he exclaimed when he saw it. "How awful nice, I knew you was the fairy all right as soon as I seen ye, some day I can go to fairy land again with ye can't I?" "Yes Tommy not only to fairy land, but away into the country where you have never been and just think! you are going to have a doctorg then you will be well some day real soon." "Oh! oh!" was all that Tommy could say. A week later found a little party of four including Tommy, Alice, Betty and her father, all journeying toward the Lee's beautiful country home. "I can hardly sit still," exclaimed Betty excitedly. "We are going to have so much fun, aren't we Tommy?" i"Ye betcha an' when I git well, just watch me, for I am a goin' to walk clear round the world." This remark brought. however, a chuckle from the whole group for Tommy, when relieved of his pain was really a bright and witty little boy. Tommy's treatments were begun almost immediately after the party had reached their destination and for weeks the poor little fellow lay in his bed suffering from the terrible pain which he himself, had to bear. But Tommy knew a secret which was shared with no one, and that was what the little fairy had once said to him: "Tommy this is the flower of sunshine, and just remember that there is always sun- shine in every little dark corner." It was again nearing the Christmas season and the doctor had said to Mr. Lee. "I think sir, that.Tommy can be up and walking by Christmas. That is when we shall see whether our patience, and hard work are of any worth, for if he does not walk the chances are that he will never live through the shock." The crimson sun had faded, and once more it was Christmas eve. The little family were waiting with anxious faces for the morrow when they hoped that Tommy could arise from his bed. That night Alice tip-toed quietly into Tommy's room. "Oh, is it you sister dear? I thought it was Santyf' "You did? Well that's a joke on youg I came to kiss you good night dear before old Santa does come." "Please don't say good night Alice, I wanna tell you soinetliingg will you listen?" "Yes dear," replied Alice anxiously. "Well, I-I had another one of them dreams about fairies, and the same purty star come down and danced around on my bed, then a sweet little fairy stepped out agin and come' over and whispered in my ear and said: 'Tommy sleep well tonight and remember what I told you for tomorrow you will really walk." Won't that just be grand Alice?" Alice was so excited that she hardly knew what she was doing, but finally she managed to get to her own room and dropping on her knees she prayed as she never had before. When the Angels came down that night with their little flower-sprinkled baskets to gather up the prayers, T0mmy's and Alice's must have been the first ones accepted, because on Christmas morn, Tommy arose from his bed, and walked.

But I stick my head down in my book When teacher looks at me. When I sit in the seat with John, We laugh an' talk, te! he! But the corners of my mouth go down, When tea-cher looks at me. I copy tests 'most all the time. I'm slick. Oh yes, very! But I feel a little nervous, When teacher looks at me. When I get big an' manly, I'll be a teacher too, An' maybe you'll feel guilty, When teacher looks at you. -IVY DRAKE .-...0....

Our operator, having with grea.t difficulty severed the skull, he desired us to ob- serve the extreme thickness and solidity of this outer protection. Upon close exami- nation we soon found why it is so very hard for anything to penetrate into the mind of a boy in his first year of high school, the bone being everywhere an inch in thick- ness, and sometimes even two inches thick. We next came upon a colorless, gluey fluid for which we saw no use except, per- haps, to keep the mental organ from rattling against the bone. Having cleared away this outer material, the brain itself was revealed. At first glance it resembled a smooth, gray ball, but was, however divided into two parts: the cerebrum, looking somewha.t like a cap, and at the back a small mass called the cerebellum. One thing we thought queer, namely, that this center of thought was hardly wrinkled at all such as we knew other brains to be. The surgeon merely said, "the more wrinkles, the more wit." Everyone knows that this gray matter is very thin and that inside all the fibres are white and these nerves connect and transport the feelings received from the different organs of sense, such as the eyes. Upon tearing apart the tissues we found these nerves to have a greenish tinge and from their position we could tell that the cells had never moved very rapidly in their transportation of this Freshman's sen- sation. ' As we were minutely observing these cells, the brain itself seemed to enlarge and become a creature with one large eye which seemed to be looking directly at me. I awoke with a start! I have never since been capable of meeting squarely the gaze of a lower classmate. -ELSA PETERSON. , .

The party was given by the Juniors and Seniors who had the gym decorated in black and orange crepe paper. Games were played a greater part of the evening and refreshments were served about 10:30. People of many characters were assembled in a variety of costumes and the evening was enjoyed by all present. THE ASTRUM 77 ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PARTY lSocial Doings of the Year 19235 Last October on a moonless night The Seniors assembled with hearts quite light. To the Old College Field they all did repair, And soon a bright bonfire was kindled there. 'Fhen the dear children with their guardians mild Into a circle all were piled, The little dears, and the chaperones too, Amused themselves as children will do. They played their games for an hour or two, And then they all craved something newg So to the fire they all did run, And each one grabbed a Weiner and bun. They ate until they could eat no more, Then into the autos they all did pour, And each little one on his homeward way Said "'twas the end of a perfect day." For excitement these children were greedy quite, And they all agreed that the Seniors might Have another party, and lots more fun. The thing was no sooner said than done. And so one night they came to the gym So bright and shining the lights grew dim, About the "Snake Dance" they all went quite wild, When they needs must quit they were unreconciled. But "refreshments" soon left them all smiling and gay, And each one remarked as he went on his way That the night was another bright star in the crown Of the Seniors, the best little class in the town. The parties were many, the parties were long But never yet has one been called "Mah Jong." Of the masquerades, Weiner roasts and the rest, No Senior can yet say which was the best. -MARY HOLMES. 78 THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL TO THE JUNIORS f0n their social activities J Onc't we had a party. A few months agog We 'vited all the faculty. Us Juniors you know. An' I's on the committee, I was, you betg An' when We's makin' sandwiches, I et and et and et. An' that night at eight o'clock, We's all there on time, In our bestest nicest clothes, And a fresh shoe shine. Purty soon we played some games, One called Skip-come-a-Loog And anothern you winked at a boy, An nen he came to you. Nen we played catterpillerg That's hard on your chair. And purty soon I'd find myself Just sittin' on the air. Then came 'freshments, yum! yum! Our appetites were keen, Sandwiches and wafers, too, And then some brick ice-cream. A.ter We's all through eatin' And it was purty late: Mr. Almer says as how We'd better all percolate. So then we all went home that night. Thru the driving rain. To dream of mountains of brick ice- cream, An' that winkin' game. An nen when it got nice and cold We had a Weiner roast. And of weiners, marshmallows and buns There surely was a host. We played lots of purty games Then round the bonfires sat. And sang "Old Hogan's Goat," And other songs like that. We also had a bob sled ride, When the streets were full of snow. We got a couple of bob-tailed nagsg Crack! and away we go. But the sled went all to smash, 'Cause of the heavy load. And me'n Decker an' some more, Were sittin' in the road. Nen we went to the school house, And had a little lunch. So here's to the members of the Junior Class! They're sure some jolly bunch. -M. DRAKE.

I arrived in Rock Island at 2:00 p. m. and found that the Rock Island Southern was the cnly means of completing my journey to Aledo. What was my surprise, yes, and astonishment, to find, on boarding the train Harry Brown, conductor. He pom- pously strode down the aisle, and thrust a newspaper into my hand. Glaring head- lines greeted me. Edward Watson, fol'owing in the footsteps of his father, was re- cently elected Justice of the Supreme Court on the DEMOCRATIC ticket. A commo- tion across the aisle diverted my attention. 'Here boy, paper, paperg what's the matter with that kid?" This voice sounded decidedly familiar, and looking up I saw Roy Yerkey. His hair had begun to become gray at the temples, but otherwise he was unchanged. I found out that he was a successful business man, situated in the Wrigley building, and needing a rest, was returning home for a visit after ten years absence. BUMP. VICLA! Who is that out- side of the window? If it isn't Bertha Dungan and Elsa Peterson who have taken up a life-long residence in Viola as successful housewives, although, Bertha outside of her homework, is running a dietician parlor. Bumpety, Bump, on we go. Hopewell! here indeed is the great surprise. John Lemon and Clio Mclntyre are running a truck farm here, much trade goes on in this teeming city for them. Across the fields I see a quaint bungalow and upon inquiry, find that Helen Stead and Evart Bjorkman are at last united in the holy bonds of matrimony, and are living in a house by the side of the road letting the rest of the world go by. Ah! happy wedlock. Aledo! I fall off the train into the arms of a portly gentlemang no, yes, it is Ralph Monson locking for his daughters returning home from boarding school. Leaving the station I turn a corner very hastily, only to bump into a cop. I back up respectfully, for you know with police this pays. When instead of a forbidding face I see, Harvey Thompson, successor of Trigger Leg, beaming jovially. He apprises me of the fact that Mildred Thompson and Carl Anderson are peaceably living on a 160 acre farm east of Aledo. How times do change. I leave him, picking my way carefully, for a sewer trench has been dug here recently, a face appears over the edge of the trench preparing to cast a shovelful of dirt upon the ground. Old memories surge back. I've seen that face before. Yes, it is Charles Duvall. day laborer, living happily with a wife and ten children on twelve dollars a week. I am so overcome that I walk in a daze only to violently collide with a stern visaged person coming down the street. I expect to hear reprimanding words, but instead I see, Ella Litzenberger, matron of a girl's juvenile home in Aledo. I find out from her that Mary Alice Clarke and Bill Hawks were happily married until Bill fell out of the back of the wagon and fell in love with Ivy Drake, the Russian heiress, now Mary Alice is suing for divorce. This shocked me into silence, and I walked on saying nothing until I paused, by instinct, in front of the Aledo Opera House. Here I soon found out that Larry Morford was manager, with Ferne Thomas and Margaret Gilmore as assistants in the infant's department. As I glanced across the street I saw blazing headlines. Besse Hodgson, Editor of the Scandal Monger, the weekly newspaper. Beside this building was a bakery run by Frances Harbour. A voice arrested my attention. "I don't have to sign up for your paper. I took it once and I can't tell you half what I think of it." Gladys Minteer was telling a newspaper man where to get off at. She is running for the State Legislature on the new women's ticket. I found out from her that Helen Thornton had taken over housekeeping long ago, and is now living in St. Louis. Anabel Litzenberger is a missionary in the South Sea Islands, and horrors THE ASTRUM ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL of horrors, Marie Perrin is a telephone operator in Africa. This shocked me so that I did not notice at first the huge placard displayed in full sight. Lyle Bradford, repre- sentative of the Curtis Publishing Company. Get your subscriptions here, Country Gentleman. As it was the annual fair time of Aledo I decided to ride down to the fair grounds to see if some of my former classmates were not roaming around as in the days of yore. I went to the airplane grounds and walked up to an aviator, asking how much the fare was for a ride. He turned around. Dallas Brown, who served the government for five years, was now in the U. S. air mail service. I walked out on the grounds. A gypsy fortune teller was mumbling some incoherent words. Bending down to hear, I heard a familiar voice. Mary Holmes, now a fortune teller, had decided to retire on what she had acquired during her years of hard labor. She looked into her crystal and what do you suppose she saw? Annetta Seefeld teaching geometry in Shelby, Montana. This was a knockout with me, and my attention and I walked over to the carnival. Thinking I could get inquired of him if he had seen any "Yes, I saw Nora Penman as I started out to see the sights. A crowd attracted see Donald Durning, the great boxing champion of some information about my classmates from him, I of them on his extensive travels. a cowpuncher in North Dakota, Frances Rush is assisting Mr. Croyle in a bookkeeping department in Chicago. Florence Hyett and Mary Butcher are conducting a tea room in Sherrard. Grace Seiver and Ethel Park- inson are in Zeigfeld Follies. And what do you think? Yvonne Berglund is con- ducting a column for broken hearts in the Herald and Examiner. Francis Johnston is coach on the Harvard football team. And let's see, Opal Brown is teaching French in China. That also brings back to my mind that I saw Colby Pinkerton in Omaha selling celluloid arrow collars, guaranteed not to burn. Clarence Stephens is at the head of this firm and is conducting Cannibal Islands introducing dolyn Willits are conducting Whitney contribute daily., I business on a large scale. I saw Faith Cooke in the jazz music to the cannibals. Mary Wagoner and Gwen- a matrimonial bureau to which Leo Johnson and Elwin guess that's all I've seen." I thanked him cordially and proceeded, a wiser and happier person. THE ASTRUM -FAITH COOKE. -MARIE PERRIN. N-V..
