Not an unusual occurence and still this one was, for never before had any group of students come into the High School in mid-year. How well I can remember those First weeks of our Freshman year. The little girls with the big bows on their hair and the little boys trying to act big. Freshman was the right name for some of those boys, for they certainly were fresh. Most of the girls were rather timid and would walk through the halls gripping each other by the arm and they did look so out-of-place, but after a month or two had gone by, our Freshman gained courage along with knowledge and strode bravely through the halls. They Went up the right side of the stairs now, and did not wait on the various floors for the elevator. ' Sophomore days followed quickly on the heels of Freshman days. The class of '17 began to wake up and feel its importance. Some of the boys and girls became interested in athletics and others joined certain clubs and formed new ones. Sophomore year was a good one for most of the Class. Then suddenly, before the class was aware of it, they called us, 'Qfulliorsy' and from this time 011. one could see the class jump in their growing. No more big bows tilted jauntily from the heads of the little girls, for the little girls were big ones now and most of them had stopped buying ribbons. The girls had grown up and the hair had gone up. As for the boys-well- the "freshness" had worn off by now. Our little boys with short trousers now had long ones and, following the latest mode, each young man had combed his hair straight back. ln Freshman year, one often saw the boys with dusty shoes, mussy hair, and often no necktie at all, but all changedg -the boys now wore the necktie "shew liked best and the smell of shoe polish was very evident while many of the heads looked as if they had been oiled. Some of our class were elected to Student Council, and during the winter of our Junior Year, the class gave its first party in the Gymnasium. The Junior Year was exciting and interesting, and for many, a hard year as far as studies were concernedg but it was a good preparation for the year to come, our Senior year. Seniors l-was it possible? Taking up our new responsibilities we plunged on, eager for the day of Graduation. The first half of Senior Year surely was a busy one. New oiiicers were elected and new plans laid. Then the last half of that Senior year was more than busy. The Senior play was given and then came the Christmas Pageant and our Christmas vacation. And the farewell Senior-Alumni Dance, a night never to be forgotten. After this came our graduation and here, I believe, comes the real rush of High School life. E fi THE TOWER Four years-and what a change they make in a person and how swiftly they pass! Even the jolliest of the class feels a tinge of regret and sorrow at the thought of High School days being over, but still, the four years have given us a host of warm, true friends, and memories which we can carry down through all the years. High School days are over, but the door of Opportunity swings open for the class of February, 1917, so let us say goodbye to all the good friends, teachers, and Principal at Allegheny High, and go forth to ac- complish the task that await us.

She will guide many a young mind, unfolding to them the wonders of the classic world. Harry Sell and Howard Fry have both become writers. Mr. Sell's most famous work is that entitled "The Joys of a Bachelor as seen by a Married Man." Edna Purcell is aspiring to no nobler calling than that of cooking teacher. Many a dainty morsel w'ill be burned, while Edna goes out to fill her dates. , Gilmore VVilliams is a doctor and has made his name in Surgery. For the Foley girls I see wealth, happiness and everything that is good. Cora will in time marry a preacher, while Virginia will marry into a Royal family. Amelia Klicker will spend most of her days on a ranch in Montana with Margaret Woods to help her cook for the farm-hands. VVhat is this next shape? Oh yes, I see now. Mildred Davis. She is president of the Women Suffrage Association. Her shoes are a little worn but that is because she has led so many Suffrage parades. Behind her always a great train of women, some of the most important of which are Margaret Hamilton, Eleanor Lotz, Isabel Ferguson and Marion Foster. But a man of note in this great city is seen at the rear of the line, carrying an enormous banner which seems very light, judging by the heavenly expression on his face-Charles Danver. Kathleen Kelly has just completed her first great novel, "The Mystery of the VVavy and Beautiful Tressesf, In order to be near her chum, Margaret Hartley has decided to teach typewriting in the room opposite one in which Grace Borchers is endeavoring to conduct a class and impress upon the pupils the superiority of Socrates over other men. I fear this shows a bad trait in Margaretys character because if she has a tilt with her loved friend she can easily open the door and the noise of the hundred and one typewriters will soon bring Grace to a realiza- tion of a great offense she must have committed. Caruso is no longer the most celebrated singer in the world. Ade Higgins makes him look sick, and now we will all pay enormous sums to hear him, when but a few years ago, it would have been a punishment. Gertrude Clark has become a teacher in English, specializing in Rhetoric. The people of Spring Hill have decided to have an elevator which runs at all hours of the day and night, up and down that hill. They have found a jewel in their elevator boy-Clarence Dieter. A great play entitled "My Belovedn has just arrived at the Alvin. Mr. Rody Patterson is the star and his leading lady, Miss Jeanette Singer, has been recognized as a very clever and remarkable actress. Others in the cast THE TOXVER 25 are Helen Bussey, Lorna Brown, Oscar XVallace, Elinor McKelvy, Florence Newell, Irene XVhite, and Albert XVesterman. I A concert is to be given at Carnegie Music Hall in East End. Elman the great violinist, Sembrick, Schumann-Heink, Paderewski, and other great artists will be there. Miss Ruth St. Clair, who we are proud to remember graduated with us from .Allegheny High, is the woman who will draw a great crowd that night, not only because of her winning personality, but because of her marvellous performance at the piano. She is on a tour around the World. A list of the patronesses are Miss Anna Belle Haley, Miss Elizabeth Garver, Miss Alice Black, and Miss Elizabeth Hammer. XVilliam Hart is working in Boggs and Buhls selling mirrors, powder, etc. XVe hear that the poor boy is soon to lose his position because of his use of the articles he is supposed to sell. XVith him is Joseph Gross and Nell Reid. Gunpowder instead of rice powder was applied and a terrible explosion occurred in Room 109 on the last day of school and Adelaide Peiters was seen no more in Pittsburgh. An article in the paper says that a person of that name, has been wandering about in China muttering wildly about the mirror in 109 and the evilconsequences attending any one who goes near it. Recently a new bank has been established and Paul NVineman elected its president. He is very etiicient and the lady customers all support him. Alice Beatty is busily engaged selling Kathleen Kelly's book. She is making quite a neat little sum of money this way but her specialty seems to be in selling combs. 1 In a deserted part of Pittsburgh is a little hut. At First it appears as though no one lives here, but later we find that the place is inhabited by Grace Braun who is still working' on Latin Prose Composition, thirty or forty years from now, she will be a marvel, putting poor Vergil entirely out of the limelight. VVilliam Seibert conducts a select dancing school. At all the dances now he and his partner, Miss Hilda Schodde, give exhibition dances. It is rumored that they are about to go on the stage. The Pitt Football team has again won the world's championship. One of our own classmates, Robert Irwin, is the captain. The star players are Robert Titzel and Talavsky. 1 Many medals adorn Edith Beck. No one now dares compete with her in swimming. The Kaiser has just sent a note to Dorothy Turkle asking her to come and advise him in a very grave state matter. She will probably not be gone very long as there is a great demand for her at many places. Jessie Elliot went with her. Sara l.endrum is the first woman representative from Pennsylvania. 26 THE TOWER john Kvatsak has entered into politics and is considered a good presi- dential timber for 1930. The Street Car Company employs one conductor of whom they have every reason to be proud. Don Luty is most eflicient. The way he yells "NVatch your step" and "Fare, Please' is quite an accomplishment. Lenna Rugh has just arrived at the front as a Red Cross Nurse. lt is not known whether she will do much good because Lenna was always very careless and she might give some poor soldier camphor instead of castor oil. Some of the girls who went with her as nurses were Elizabeth VVright, Dorothy Volbreight, Mildred Harvey and Helen Avey. Mildred McKinley owns a chewing gum slot machine in the Union Station. She stands continually beside it and when she isn't extracting a piece of gum for herself she is busy looking into the mirror which is attached above the slot machine. "And now that you've gone over each one, dear Hexbert, you had better go, because we must talk over these amazing disclosures." "Oh, of course its always that way, when l've done what you wanted. But Iyve no objections. Say the quick spell and have me Bang-a-boo--bar Bang-a-boo-whack, XVitch is gone, Sun come back. Marrombah. Grace llorchers. Ruth St. Clair. THE TOWER 1 with Qpulugies tn ne Once upon an evening dreary, as I pondered with the query Of the deep and curious problems of our school days being o'er, Of the pupils who are quitting, wnodering where they'll all be Hitting As they leave the halls of Allegheny High School evermore,- Deep into this subject peering, long 1 sat there-wondering-fearing- Thinking of the happy days and friends we'll see no more,f How some girls may soon be teachers, and our liviliest boys be preachers Preaching what they never practised, nor will evermorez- How our shyest girls may marry, how the Hirtiest ones may tarry.- Hunting, searching for a soul-mate to cook for evermore: How some may go to college, to gain a better knowledge. Of the merry things they "dipped" into at Allegheny High, And some will only spend their time in pleasures as before- And laugh at those who earnestly are working evermore. So I sat there wondering--dreaming-pondering,-thinking- Of the studies, friends, and good old times we soon will have no more 1- But there's one thought comes to me, and I'm sure you will agree. That the days and friends of High School life in memory will stay: For even if we settle here, or in far countries soar, The good old days of .X. H. S. will linger evermore.

Q E h Vf'k PEG HARTLEY 32 T H E T U XX' E R THLETICS igasehall, 1916 From several different standpoints the season of 1916 was very suc- cessful. There were only four veterans of the game in the lineup, for this season. Those were Captain Mullin, who for four years had worked on the team, Eisenbeis, who was also a campaigner of four years: NYittmer, who played on the varsity three years: and Krouse, who was held over from last year. XYith these men as a nucleus, Coach Peters built up a team which played a line game of ball on almost every occasion. This team showed more Fight than any since the Harvard Cup was won. And they fought particularly hard when the score was going against them. This was especially shown in the Central and Peabody games at Phipps, when the first was won and the second lost by one run due to a ninth inning rally. The season opened at Phipps on April 28, when South High was met and overwhelmingly defeated by a 21-2 score. This game showed that there were some real hitters in the aggregation, for they collected a total of nineteen hits from three South pitchers. Peabody was met at Morningside Park on May 2, and we received a 4-2 setback. Scott certainly pitched a fine game, having fourteen strikeouts. On May 5, Fifth Avenue visited us at Phipps and returned home with a 10-5 victory. The game was lost through failure to support Powell. On the afternoon of May 9, Central High was defeated at Phipps in a great ninth inning batting rally which ended only after Allegheny had boosted her score up to 6 runs whi-le the best Central could do was 5. South was defeated at South on May 12, in a loose and free hitting game, 21-17. Each team was called upon to use a pair of twirlers. Powell and Kruse were selected to serve the South batters . THE TUXYER oo In the Hnest played game seen at Phipps during the season, Allegheny pulled off a 5-2 victory from Vkfestinghouse High on May 18. Neither side was able to hit freely, but in the second We bunched ours, scored four and followed in the third with one more. Again Scott pitched airtight ball and was supported by errorless fielding. This time thirteen wearers of the "XV" struck out. Peabody on May 23, for the second time defeated us by a 3-2 score. This catastrope was due to the badly calculated base running of Allegheny's players. Scott again did fine work with his foolers, and sixteen men were forced to fan the air. Wie submitted to a 7-6 reverse on May 26, at Flinn Park, at the hands of Fifth Avenue. Allegheny started like a sure winner, but Fifth kept plug- ging along and won out in the ninth inning. Our last contest was with Central on May 29. Allegheny bunehed their hits in the second, third, and fourth innings and chased enough runs across the plate to win. The final result was 10-7.

'HSM lit since so few veterans THE FOOTBALL TEAM THE TOWER 35 jfunthall, 1916 This year an entirely new feature of High School athletics was introduced and successfully carried out by the Allegheny High football team. Owing to school's being held up and scheduled to begin so late in the season, the Epworth Fresh Air Camp at Bakers- town was secured, and the candidates for the team assembled for practice about two weeks before the school semester opened. ln this way they were able to get a lot of preliminary practice and get in condition for the season after school opened. - There were about twenty-five eager candidates in the camp, many of whom were last year's "huskies" returning to renew the fray. The candidates were as follows: Higgins, Qfaptj, Friday, Kellog, Shanahan, Boggs, G. Smith, Schifano, Tatem, Spence, Stieska, Mihm, Cupp, Knabb, Danver, Zuck, Geltz, Austin, Titzel, Irvin, Clawson, Stanger, Adler, Tharp, and Burns. ROY E.TILLOTSON The fellows were divided into squads, Coach and each squad had a share of the work connected with the keeping of the camp to do. The day's program was well divided between work and recreation. All turned out at six o'clock and lights were out at 9:30. But life in the camp was not all hard football training. On the second Saturday night in camp a corn roast and marshmallow toast was given. The town of Mars kindly supplied girls for the crowd. The camp had a number of visitors. Among the distinguished ones were "Bill" Knox, All American half, R. T-. XYilliams from the Hilltop Y. M. C. A.g Bill Wlishart from Muskingum, and many boys from High School. The camp broke up Saturday, September 30, with all the fellows in fine health and good condition. Owing to thecancellation of the Crafton game, Allegheny was invited to play Clairton. This game, the Hrst one of the season, was played at Clairton, Friday, Getober 6, and resulted in a tie score of ll-14. Excellent 36 TIIE TOWER form was shown by our team throughout the game. Irvin and Boggs made the touchdowns. On Saturday, October 14, Allegheny High played Edgewood High at Expo Park. After a plucky battle in which Edgewood was sadly outclassed. the game ended with Allegheny the victor by a score of 44-0. The next game was on Friday, October 20, in which Allegheny walloped VVestinghouse High to the tune of 9-6. This was a hard fought game, and Allegheny's players did some fine work in spite of the sloppy Held. In the First quarter Boggs made a touchdown, and Irvin kicked a field goal from the 30-yd. line in the third quarter. On October 27, our boys traveled to McDonald and defeated the boys from that High School by the overwhelming score of 65-0.x McDonald was outclassed, and Allegheny kept piling up one touchdown after another. In this game Boggs, Kellog, and Higgins scored ten touchdowns. At Expo Park, on Thursday November 2, Allegheny copped an easy victory from South High, rolling up a score of 48-0. Allegheny made big gains on end plays in this game, Higgins and Kellog featuring with a couple of long end runs. Once Irvin ran 40 yards through the whole South team for a touchdown. Allegheny next defeated Fifth on Thursday, November 9, after a tight game. It was played through a drizzling rain, which handicapped both teams greatly. The final score was 7-0. Irvin and Kellog starred for Allegheny. In the next game Allegheny won the city championship when they defeated Schenley at Expo Park, on November 17, by a score of 19-0. This was a brilliantly played game throughout, neither side gaining much in the first half. The latter part of the game was played with a rush which showed that our boys had the pep in them. The last game was with McKcesport High. This was the game that would decide whether or not Allegheny should play for the Syracuse cup. The game was a hard fought struggle for the victory, but something happened, and all at once McKeesport had scored 2 against Allegheny. It remained this way the rest of the game, and Allegheny met defeat for the first time, the score being 2-0. XVith this defeat Allegheny lost the chance to play the final game for the Syracuse cup. The season closed with the annual game between the Seniors and juniors. The Seniors defeated the Juniors by a score of 13-10. There was some fine playing shown in this game. At the close of the season the football fellows met at the home of George Higgins for the purpose of electing a captain for next year. Don Cupp was unanimously elected. Cupp has certainly played a fine game this year and deserves the honor he received. THE TOWER 37 Zgaskethall, 1916 This season was begun in a manner which showed the loyal enthusiasm of the students. XVhen the call came for candidates, in the early part of December, 1915, it was heartily answered by a squad of nearly forty fellows, who were all eager to earn a place on the "mighty five" which would represent Allegheny High School in this branch of athletics. Fortunately the splendid Phipps gymnasium had been secured for the team. and during the three weeks preceding the opening of the season. the candidates were all put through a grilling practice by'Coach Peters. He had some fine material from which to pick his Five varsity men. The prospects for Allegheny having a winning team for the season were very promising. Every one was full of hopeful expectation as the first game approached. Finally the time arrived, and on December 27, 1915, our varsity team met and defeated Captain Ladleyls alumni team on the Boys' Branch Hoof. The score was 27-25. And everybody certainly was happy when our first league game was played against Peabody. NVQ just naturally walloped them to the tune of 37-17. Then came our first cheek when at the hands of Fifth Avenue. we were defeated by a 24-17 score. Soon after this, XVestinghouse defeated our team by a close score of 34-335 and then Braddock in the game with Allegheny piled up a score of 31 against our 21 points. But hope again stirred in our breasts, and the clouds passed away when we defeated Butler by a score of 34 to 27 points. This was our second and last league victory. From this time on to the end of the season, the team met one reverse after another. Although some of the defeats were of the one or two point variety, yet some were more decided. Although the season was not a decided success in the line of winning victories, yet it was remarkable for the splendid support which the team re- ceived from the student body in victory and defeat. The "Never-say-die" spirit of the team was commendable, and they were always to be seen playing their hardest whether the score was close or not. The captain, George Fisher, was always right there with the goods in the hardest part of the game. LETTER MEN, 1916 .- G George Fisher, 16, Capt. Benjamin Colker, '19. Bernard Sedlar, Feb. '17.

There is a large squad of fellows out to help make things go. Among the fine material which has shown up, Coach Tillotson is going to find a champion team. Several of our old stars from last year are still with us. Among them are Landsdorfer, Mcfrory, Kellog, and Colker. XVe also have a couple of new men who promise to be stars, they are Custard and Luyder. Both are stars from Avalon's team of last year and are'full of pep which will benefit Allegheny this year. The one game which has been played, resulted in a defeat for Crafton by a score of 58-15. This is a good beginning, and it is hoped that the team will continue to go at this pace. 424 rib 42: Ziannhep For the first time in its history Allegheny High has a hockey team.: NVhen the call for candidates went out, quite a promising crowd of fellows came forth, and George Smith was elected temporary captain. Al- though none of the men have ever played on hockey teams before, they made a good showing in the games played, and the prospects are bright that we will be among the leaders at the close of the season. The team's first appearance on the ice was against XVestinghouse, whom they defeated by a score of 5-0. The game was a fast one owing to the consistent playing of Marton, Holyland and Donaldson. Many of the other fellows did good work and gave promise of developing good team work. In the next game on December 9, at Duquesne Garden, Allegheny was defeated, after a plueky battle, by Peabody. Adler played a solendid game for Allegheny, closely followed by Marton and Holyland. XYright was the individual star for Peabody. ' 'sg rg. .gt Quant Soccer, a new form of athletics in the High School, has not received so much support as some of the other games. This year the season is only beginning and yet, although there could be more enthusiasm shown over this game, there are many who have great hopes of its being a successful season. Last year being only the second year of the game in the school, not a great deal of knowledge about the sport was shown by the candidates. But THE TOWER 41 by the end of the season we had a pretty good team, thanks to the good coaching given by Mr. Siviter, and to the fine spirit of the players. 3 Several very interesting games were played with other schools and outside teams. The players were to be complimented on the true Alleghenian spirit they showed in playing a square, clean game at all times. A number of men played well enough to receive letters. They were Fekula, '16, Spence, '17, Grenet, '17: 1Vallace, 'ltihg Campbell, 'IGMZQ Zuck, '17, Patterson, ,16wg Luby, '17, Pollock and Kuhl, '16, FlaHavhen, '16, Schifano, '16, Adams, ,185 Shanahan, Babic, and Baur, '17, and Huggins, '17. 'X"X'vXv btnimming Although not so popular a sport now as in former times, swimming is still an interesting branch of our athletics. Last year many spirited events were held at the Irwin Avenue pool. The season began with an interclass meet in which the seniors came oft with Hying colors, having won about every event. Later a series of close and interesting water pool games was played with the T. A. A. C. A dual meet was held with Ralston High and resulted in Ralston carrying oit First honors in the swimming events and in the polo game. Next came the Pitt meet. The season closed on May 263 with a city high school championship meet at the McNaugher pool. Allegheny took second in this, losing First place to Peabody by only a few points. A number of our men are stars in this branch of athletics. Danvers, Xvineman, Bumry, and Stevenson, having scored the required number of points, received letters. V '44 fit' The season this year was open with the finest show of enthusiasm in several years. This may have been caused by several different things, but at any rate there was more pep shown by the supporters than ever before. Because of the uncertain condition of the weather, Phipps gymnasium was secured, and the candidates were put through some preliminary work on the indoor track before the outside one was in a condition to use. All the candidates were full of pep, and everyone worked with a will to make Allegheny's track team a winning combination. 42 THE TOXYER Two dual meets were held to help prepare the fellows for the harder college meets which came later. The First was held with South High. South had some exceptionally fine men in the track events and soon outclassed Allegheny, but in the field events Allegheny pulled ahead and finally won the meet by the close score of 33-32. About ten days later a meet was held with VVestinghouse High at Phipps playground. Unfortunately this meet was attended by some unpleasant weather, but all the participants made a good showing. Allegheny, by means of hard work, succeeded in winning a sub- stantial victory of 31W to NSW. The larger meets soon followed, and Allegheny was brought to the attention of the students through the efforts of our captain, Ray Marter. He was the only Allegheny Qepresentative to score in the Tech and Pitt meets. Un june 2, the XY. P. l. A. l,. meet was held at Trees Stadium. Allegheny took third place with 2415 points. A noticeable feature of this meet was the disagreeable condition of the held. That part of the lield which wasn't under water, was a mass of yellow, and extremely sticky clay. In this meet, Captain Marter took two first places, in the pole vault and high jump, XVittmer, first in the javelin throw and fourth in the hammer throwg Stieska, second in the broad jump: Wallace, fifth in the mile rim: while the relay team took fourth in the mile relay. Cn 'lune 8, the track letters were awarded to the following fellows who 6 won the required number of points: ll. Marter, Captain Fla llavlian Demmey XV. Marter Scott Friday Stieska Shanahan Wiallaee XYittmer Gardner Oscar XYallace. ,ff 'Et' 'l' lil li 'l' O XX' E R 4:5 U Girls' Qthletics Allegheny girls have always held their own in athletics, But they were not satisfied with this standard, however. So some of the energetic girls and faculty members of our school started a Girls' Athletic Association. This association was first organized in 1915 and has been of great service to the girls who are interested in athletics. In june, 1916, a meeting was held, and new oiiicers were elected as follows: Margaret Mercer, President: Ethel blames, Vice President: Mennie Saul, Secretary. Last year the Association gave some very nice parties. Although they have not been able to do much along that line so far, still they expect to before the end of the year. Swimming At the first meeting of the Girlys Athletic Association, two swimming clubs were formed. The girls meet at McNaugher and Irwin pools on Thurs- days and Fridays. From these two clubs members will be selected as participants in the Pitt Swimming Contest, which will be held later in the year. Due credit must be given to the girls for their good work and co- operation in this new branch of athletics in the school. Uliennis l.ast year there were forty-five who entered the tennis tournament. They not only entered, but they worked. And 1 don't think that their work was in vain because there were some very interesting games and they were highly appreciated by the spectators. But on account of cold weather setting in too soon,,the School Championship matches were not played. The final match is yet to be played between Claire Yewman and Margaret Cierwigf This final match will take place as early in the spring as possible, and a letter will beawarded as before to the school champion. As it was last year, a junior and a Senior fight for victory. 3Ba5kethaII No more do we see our Velma shooting her wonderful fouls: no more do we see Yan. Harriet. or Anna starring'as before. Yes. we miss them just as we have missed Peg and many others. But others are ready and willing to take their place in keeping up the standard set by the girls heretofore. This year Allegheny is starting out with a new team and is starting well. The girls have all been working exceedingly hard and are paid for their labor by the result of the game on january 4.

The Hoor, freshly waxed, caused much excitement until both teams became accustomed to playing on it. In the early part of the first quarter, the game favored Fifth Avenue, owing to their wonderful team work. This team work was soon broken up after Allegheny became acquainted with the floor. The score for the first half was 4 to 3 in favor of Allegheny. ln the second quarter neither team was able to score. But in the third quarter Allegheny's quickness and fore- sight soon made victory sure for the Red and Blue. Ethel James and Mildred McKinley played a spirited game. Lillian Bierworth, who scored seven points was Allegheny's individual star. The Line-up: Allegheny Fifth Avenue I-. Bierworth F. F. Silver M. Mercer F. B. Holtz A. Wlilson C. E. Allen M.

From the time a certain group of girls hailing from 209 came down a Hoor, Mr. James has shown an awful and powerful hate for that mirror. How many happy and beautiful visages it has reflected! How many girls fairly worship it! How many boys -l But alas, at the beginning of the year 1916, for reasons we can't pos- sibly guess. our instructor let the vial' of his wrath pour all over the room, and the mirror was jerked to the orhce storeroom. In spite of our tearful entreaties for our beloved, we had to buy imitations which showed only a part off our faces. This was decidedly unfortunate, and we look back with blushing cheeks to think of how frumpy we looked. Then came vacation for us. Understand that the mirror had been having one for quite a time, but maybe it needed the rest. One can never tell. However, toward the end of vacation, we began to wonder whether our old friend would greet us when we started to school again. As the days seemed to tly past, our wonder turned to fear, and on that eventful morning we rushed into the cloak room and-tears ,of joy Filled our eyes, a glad thrill tickled up and down our spines. Some good angel had brought it back. VVe felt that was the only name applicable now to Mr. james. For four months now it has rested happy and secure on two hooks. The "Presiding Spirit" of 109 frequently shakes his fist at itg but the girls and Vvilliam Hart are passionately devoted to it. lt performs a great service every minute' of the day, but such remarks as these are frequently heard in front of it: "Don't take all the room, Jeanette." "Adelaide, you've been here long enough." "Get out of the way, l.enna." "1 guess l've got as much right here as you have, Grace." And Mildred's, "1 never get to look in that mirror." XVe live in constant fear, however, that the "Main Influence" will remove the mirror yet. But no matter what happens to us later, whenever we think back to our school days we shall say with one accord: "Here's to the Mirror of 109. May it always have pleasant reflections." Grace llorcliers. 'l' H E T O XY E R let HHS nt jfurget Let us not forget the things that have passed, Of our school days most pleasant from first to the last.

Moreover some of the former classes have presented a second play in addition to their senior play, the class of l9l5 giving "The Melting Pot", and the class of 1916 assisting largely in the presentation of "The Mikado." ln addition to these senior plays, the literary societies, and the oral expression classes have given many sketches and plays, both in the literary societies and in chapel: and our interest in dramatics which was first aroused in our oral expression classes increased when in the literary societies we first acted before an audience. Many people from the liebruary nineteen seventeen Class took part in these plays. Two of the most important of these plays were "The Man on the Box", a play made from the popular story by that title, and "A Doctor in Spite of Himself" by Moliere. .Xs a logical outcome of this interest in dramatics, a dramatic club was formed at the beginning of this year. Of all the clubs formed from the old literary societies, the dramatic was the largest. ln fact it was so large that it was believed at first that it would be impossible to handle it, and that it ought to be divided into two clubs. The purpose of the club is to give more self-assurance, to arouse interest in dramatics, and to develop talent. The oliicers of the club are: Charles St1'OlJCl - President Grace Borchers Yice President Marguerite Cain f Secretary CAST OF SENIOR PLAY THE TOWER 51 The club has two standing committees: the program committee con- sisting of Margaret l'.uchsinger, Raymond Schultz, janet Brautigan, Marion Gross, John Philips. and Ethel llerberick: and the executive committee, which is made up of the oiiicers of the club. The club is young and as yet hasnot done much but blaze a trail, however we are glad to have been pioneers in a good work. Even if the dramatic club had to bear the burden, "Snow NVhite', the senior class play of the February, '17 class, was one of the best plays ever given. Although the play was long, consisting of seven acts, and taking two hours in presentation, nevertheless it met with such success that it was given three times, once to the under-classes, once to the public, and once during Christmas week to the poor children of the North Side. The Hrst scene of "Snow White" is laid in the throne room of Queen Brangomafs Palaces Here we meetthe maids of honor and Sir Dandiprat. We learn of the queen's cruelity and of her magic. Then, you all remember from the storyyhow, when the prince comes, the queen becomes jealous of Snow XYhite and sends her away to be killed secretly: how Snow XVhite escapes death and lives with the dwarfs, how the bite of the poisoned apple sticks in her throat and she is supposed to be dead: how lierthold finds her and takes her back to the palace: and how she lives happily ever after with the prince. lt is just like the fairy tale, but how much more wonderful when you see it really played. lt was just like being in fairyland and seeing the real princess, whom Jeannette made so real to you. And the prince-you wouldn't have known it was Rod, for he played his part so perfectly. XVho would recognize in the cruel queen our own gentle Grace? But if l should describe each character, l am afraid that I would praise them too much, so T will show you what other people thought of our play. 'l'he following article is from the "XVah Hoo", our school paper. and, by the way, there is not a single member of our class on the staff of the "XVah Hoo." ' -'- + + I 441 43: 441 Qliiyz beninr lap v "I must not forget to tell you of 'Snow XYhite and the Seven Dwarfsi' given by the Senior Class 16143. lt was really the most elaborate and fan- tastical production ever given in our school and was given twice, XYednesday afternoon, November the twenty-ninth and Friday evening, December the First, and delighted its audience at both performances. Jeannette Singer, who played the part of "Snow XVhite" surely suited her part to perfection. Her modest, pleasant ways were by no means forced, and she rendered her part most delightfully. Xiiould you believe that "Grace Borchers was a villianessl And yet, she looked like one." Her dramatic ability is rare and she played her part remarkably well. 52 'll H E T O XY E R GROUP OF SENIOR PLAY CAST And Rody Patterson is still shy about saying "Beloved" although sometimes he said it quite naturally. XVe girls all hope that our "Prince Charmingsn will be as nice as .lean's. Charles Strobel certainly drove the audience into "distraction" He was a very haughty Sir Bombas and his funny tricks as the "Cat" kept the audience in one burst of laughter. . The witch Qulean Bertj and Berthold QI-foward lfryj were our friends because they were Snow XVhite's friends. Both played their parts admirably. And the Dwarfs! Those tiny dear old men-only they were really girls-did add much to the charm of the play. Dorothy Turkle who was the leader, certainly shouted "Brothers" in a monstrous small voice, while Mildred Davis, Tiny Purcell, l.ena Rugh, Elizabeth Hammer, Anna Gilg and Eleanor MeKelvy as the brother dwarfs were all very good in their parts. The eight Maids of Honor to Snow Yiihiteti Adelaide Peffers, Grace Braun, Kathleen Kelly, Margaret Hartley, Ruth St. Clair, Helen Bussy, Cora Foley, and Mildred McKineley were "tres charmantu and their dancing was splendid. Likewise the duehesses attending the queen who were Lorna Brown, Alice lllack, Florence Newell. Eleanor Lotz, Vivian Kline. Hilda Sehodde, Virginia Foley and Irene XVhite. Alice Beatty as the "Pedlar,,' Don Luty as the "Pie Man" and Suzanne Keener as the "Mirror" all helped to make the play a great success. Due credit should be given to Miss Howe, who coached the play, to Miss Raber, who had charge of the dancing, and Mr. Osborne and his orchestra. And last but not least, we thank the Senior Class for their hard work in affording pleasure to the entire student body, the faculty and our friends who attended."

Xthat is more, the traditional dragon was revived for the oeeasion. So on the Friday before Christmas we gave a very sue- eessful Christmas Fantasy. It was about a little boy who did not believe in "Santa Claus. nor fairies. nor dragons. nor nnthinlf' and who was convinced lzy a fairy, who showed hini all of the fairy eharaeters he wished to see, and finally showed him Santa Claus himself. Dorothy Turkle, who was Billie, and Adelaide Peffers, who was Billie's sister, played their parts in the most eonvineing mannerg Adelaide was an adorable little girl and Dorothy was a very naughty, equally adorable little boy.

First of course come our own f X N N 4 two dances, each preceded by a delightful W' A , little play. and both given in the High A , School. There was a large crowd in X attendance at each. The school was A 7 'I decorated in its colors, blue and red. At 43-" our second dance, however, there were I! 'V no refreshments after it began. Of course it didn't spoil the evening, but it put a slight damper on it for a few boys. The - In great question afterward was, "VVho took the extra jar of lemon juice FU lf this question is answered. the whole mystery of the lack of "eats" is solved. In the spring of last year the juniors gave a very delightful dance. The gym was prettily decorated, and we all surely appreciated the orchestra. lt will be remembered that last year was Leap year, and many enjoyable times have been spent as a result. A Then in May came the junior-Senior "Prom", lt was held in the Xlfilliam Penn Hotel. At one end of the hall was the banner of 1917g at the opposite end, that of 1916. Mr. Garwood and Miss Elliot led the Grand March. Mr. Smith, Miss Alberti, Miss Raber, and Mr. Peters chaperoned. Never was there a gayer, brighter evening spent, and the class of February, '17 extends its hearty thanks to the class of june '17. Another February class comes forth now and shows its mighty power. It held a dance in November at which there were more people than at any other class dance held in Allegheny. The Mercury Club held an informal dance at Sexton's after the Senior Play. Tt was short, but that made it all the more enjoyable. The Senior Alumni was held on january 5, 1917, at Allegheny High School. The gym was decorated in yellow and white streamers and beauti- fully tinted leaves. Miss Haber entertained the guests with a solo dance, which was the feature of the evening. Class Day is always a solemn occasion, and this one was no exception to the rule. However. it wasn't stiff. and soon the whole chapel shook with gales of laughter. The reason for this probably was the foolish things these ir- responsible people said about the members of the Class. Adelaide Pefifers read the will, and .Ieannette Singer showed the pictures of the class, pointing out a distinctive feature of each one. Grace Borchers held the Class Bouquetg Ruth St. Clair and Howard Fry played a duet on the piano, .Ade Higgins sang. Charles Strobel gave the Farewell Address. 58 TH E T O XX' E R Iuhs The Mu Phi Club was organized in our Freshman year. It originated with three members, Virginia Herd, Rebekah Howard, and Marian Foster. Soon after this, they acceptediF.dna Purcell, Ruth St. Clair, Anna Gilg, and Peg Gerwig. These four, of course, had to be initiated, and as the initiation is a club secret, I am unable to tell you what it is, but perhaps that is a good thing, for your eyes would widen and your cheeks blanch if you were to read the awful things that happened. Margaret Hartley, Grace Braun, Martha Gilg and Grace Borchers were the next to go through the terrible ordeal. They came out of it sadder but much, much wiser. Last but not least came our Patty Mace. She stood her ground nobly, but we hear her say frequently that she intensely dislikes salt, and we wonder why. XVith skating, slumber and theatre parties, mock weddings and dances, the Club has had a most enjoyable existence. The Berna Blae Club, which has Hourished for a year and a half, is com- posed of jolly members. just judge for yourself when I say that Belle Tolochco, Elsie Steel, Maybelle Connoley, and Alys Fisher compose the quartet. They have had many good times together, and as they graduate in june, they still have live months in which they can have a few more taffy pulls. The Y. XV. C. A. Club was organized several years ago. Formerly it met in the building, but this year it meets at Phipps gymnasium. Once a month members have club suppers for which they use the A. H. S. kitchen. They gave a delightful Christmas party for the poor children of the district and felt fully compensated when they saw the joy which lit up the face of each child present. They are doing a wonderful work, and with the help of the leaders of the club, Miss janet Mabon and Miss Phyllis Zimmers, the Club expect to do greater things. The officers are as follows: President ---- jean Vogel Vice President - Ruth Boyd Secretary - - Katherine Kirk Treasurer - Thelma Patton The Y. M. C. A. Club has been very active the past year and is doing good work along the line of personal and Christian help. The number of interviews of the "Move Up Forward" week this year soared high above that of last year, exceeding four hundred personal conferences. The club organized and elected Frank McCrory, President, joe Boggs, Vice Presidentg Bob Austin, Secretary, and Donald Cupp, Treasurer. The club is to be con- gratulated in having the services of XVilliam XVishart as their leader. THE TOWER 551 The Alleghenians Club, of which the Alumni form a great part of the membership, was formed for the purpose of keeping the Alumni in touch with the students of A. H. S. NYe look to this club for big things the rest of the term. The oflicers are Joe Boggs, President, XVhitey McCrory, Vice Presi- dentg Bob Austin, Secretary. H The Mercury Club of H. S. in the year past completed one of the most successful years of its career. Several new members have recently been taken in, and their presence has proved a great aid. As was their purpose, they did much toward the betterment of school life and the advancement of school activities. As the club is gradually becoming an Alumni organization, they fully appreciate the good which the school has been to their club. VVith wishes for the best and most successful future to the graduating class, they close another year of their career. The officers are: President ---- George Fisher, y16 Vice President - - - Joe Boggs, '17 Secretary - - Tom Landstorfer, 'lfiw Treasurer - - - Bernard Sedlar, '16M2 The rest of the members are Lloyd Tatem, Eugene Rugh, Donald Mc- Clenahan, George Hirning, Wfilliam Kellog, Benjamin Colker, Crawford Tatem, Lawrence Custard, Arthur Baird, and Charles Danver. Kappa Sigma Phi is just entering the third year of its prosperity. Originally a Sophomore club, it is now composed of Sophs, Juniors, and Seniors of three high schools of the city. Allegheny has four members, one of which, john Spence, is an officer of the club. The entire membership of fourteen. unite in wishing the members ofthe A. ll. S, class of February, '17, success in the great school of life, which they are about to enter. ln the last few years the teachers of this high school have felt that the two Literary Societies, Argus and Delphian, have been too large to handle. They have felt that they were putting too much into it and getting practically nothing out of it. So this year it was decided to divide the societies into clubs. Each person was allowed to choose his own club. As a result the Dramatic, Camera, Historical, German, Chemistry, Music and Reading clubs were formed. The Dramatic Club is by far the largest. The object is to study plays and interpret them. There have been many plays given this semester with a promise of more the next. Miss Howe is the supervisor of this Club. The officers are as follows: President - Charles Stroebel Vice President Grace Borchers Secretary - - Marguerite Cain 60 THE TQXVER The Camera Club headed by Mr. Adams are doing a very fascinating work. They are studying the correct way to take pictures. They will do all the school photography. The officers are as follows: President ---- - Sara Park Vice President - - - Harriet Rose 'Treasurer - NVestley Moffat Secretary ---- Caroline Dietz Mr. Ferren has charge of the German Club. They are doing not only an interesting work, but a very instructive one. At their meetings they both speak and write German, sing German songs, and, in fact, in the seventh period on Friday, Room 309 is a miniature Berlin. As yet they have but one officer, Miriam Gaus, Secretary. The Music Club, another club of benefit to the school, has been led by Mr. Osborne. This one was organized to study music and form. A number of interesting programs have been given. The club feels a great loss when told that Mr. Osborne has gone to accept a position in New York. Not only the Club is a loser by this fact, but the whole school suffers as a consequence. The officers are as follows: President ---- Harry Taylor Vice President - Helen Doernberger Secretary - - - - Martha Crockett Mr. Breitweiser has charge of the Chemistry Club, of which the presi- dent is Frank Babick. Out of her very large experience, Miss Murphy is able to give her Reading Club the best that is to be given. The object of this club is to read books with which they have not come in contact, both for pleasure and for profit. The officers are as follows: President - - Elizabeth jones Secretary - - Elizabeth Hay Grace Borchers. THE HISTORIC LITERARY CLUB This club, organized recently, is primarily intended to study interest- ing phases of history in connection with the study of literature. lt has, thus far, been very successful. Papers are prepared and read by the various mem- bers, who are chosen by a committee appointed for this purpose. In all the speeches so far, without exception, there has been valuable historical knowl- edge given, which would be impossible to get easily in any other way. Thus, We not only profit by the good which we obtain from it, but it also serves as THE TOXYER 61 a delightful means of entertainment. But these are not the only things which are obtained from the club. A guide, well acquainted with the locations of numerous historical sports in this community, is secured to escort the mem- bers to these places, in order that they may know just what they are study- ing about. Possessing this knowledge, it is safe to say, that any member of the club, will in a short time know Pittsburgh and its environs as any good citizen should know it. Tom VVaters.

FOUR LITTLE MAIDS OF 109 Grace, Mini, Peg, and Jean, One without tlother never was seen. Grace is plump, Mini is small, Peg is medium, jean is tall, Grace, a queen of stately height. I-lim, a tiny little mite, Peg. a maid so cute and fair, lean, Snow XYhite, of ebony hair. Thus they all did appear. In our Senior play this year, "Snow NfN'hite" was the charming play "The best ever," all did say. Jean Singer 68 THE TOXVER TO THE MU PHIS Here's to the Mu Phis of A. H. S. VVhOse days were filled with happiness, Fun and frolic they did share, These twelve Mu Phis so very fairg In future days they'll ne'er forget The dear old school where first they met. just because Mac spent the summer in Plattsburg in training, isn't it just a little bit hard for him to expect some -of his frail maidens to recite Latin, with the cold winds pouring in all three of the windows? Somehow Mr. James' name always brings to the minds of the fair sex of 109 and some of the masculine members as welli the memories of a mirror, Of course he never connects any of us with the mirrors. Yictrola records aren't the only kind that may be heard in Herr Ferren's classes. There are human records as well. Try to imagine- Helen Bussey and Anna Gilg making lots of noise. or f Lenna Rugh living one clay without mentioning blinks. Things that never happen- . Harry Sell unprepared in any of his subjects, Charles Strobel doing something promptly, Jeanette Singer standing still, Margaret Hartley acting rude, Mildred Davis on good terms with everybody. Adelaide Pelfers feeling warm, Grace Borchers reaching Latin class early. Dorothy Turkle unable to whistle, Rody Patterson with the word "crusty" out of his vocabulary, Lenna Rugh agreeing with Grace Borchers. XVhitey McCrory on a pickle-less diet, Kathleen Kelly wanting any help in Latin. Grace Braun saying unkind things, Howard Fry appearing in the seventh act at the right time. Anna Gilg shouting at the top of her voice. And finally Mr, James did learn that Hilda wasn't Laura. Scarcely .a sound is ever omitted by Miss Ferguson and Quee, although Quee often does say, "Hip-hip-hurral1l" THE TOXVER 69 Every now and then Alice Black takes a trip to XYi1kinsburg. W'e doubt if her aunt is the only attraction. "Oh Cora, are you going out? l'll stay as usual and do the work. Don't mind me." Merely quotations from the daily life of Virgie. Poor Jean Bert! XYhen asked by Mr. James if Tom Corey's proposal to Penelope was natural. she smilingly replied, 'fYou can't prove it by me." Our professional match maker in 301 is A. V. B. She even takes pity on the poor little Sophomores. Ask Sis! H 301 has a musician, but as musicians are very timid, XYilliam hasn't exhibited his talents at A. H. S. y "Al" in 301 is always exhibiting letters from other cities-ask him whom they are from, Ask Cora what her ambition in life is. lYe suggest living in a par- sonage. Helen Avey of 301 is always making preparations for a hike, but I have never seen her go on one yet. Didn't Lorna look cute in her Dutch makeup? She isn't as Dutch as she looked. ' XYe are never surprised when a so called "case" pops up. ' But when one sees frequent tet'a'tetes between Sell and Vivian. we begin to wonder and smile and prepare our blessings. To think that the Supreme Power of 109. after a personal investigation should find it necessary to add girls' names to the Rubbish Squad! And the same- girls have been studying what Ruskin says about woman having intellect for sweet ordering and arrangement. Someone has said that if the law of compensation always held good, Grace Borchers would be doomed to marry a deaf and dumb man. WHO SAYS "Girls, girls, give us a chance!" ll - ' ' ' - - Y' To--morrow, we have the most famous passage in all 'Latin Liteiatuie, and "Girls, your seats."

The Duchesses: "Uh these wigs-I feel so creepy." WHAT WE HAVE NOTICED IN OUR FOUR YEARS AT A. H. S. You can always tell a Senior. for he is so sedate and wise. You can always tell a Junior, by the way he groans and sighs, You can always tell a Freshie, by his greenness, fear, and such. You can always tell a Sophomore. but you cannot tell him much. Mr. McClure does not want a "has been" but an "iser." Now, Dwarfs. this time altogether-do it again-get down.-and- THE TOWER il XYhen the February '19 class leaves A. H.

There's Isabel and little Quee, NYho are both as quiet as can beg Cora and "Billie," maids to Snow Xllhite, Each of whom is very bright: Alice Beatty likes to roam Over the wood to sell a comb: To not a single one breathe this- She's in love with a girl called .sSiS.9! The duchesses are not always seen Around their sweet and smiling queen, You may not know just whom we mean, But they're Alice, Hilda, Virg., and jean.
