THE TOXVER 5

February, 1913-new class in Allegheny High School. 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.

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.

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
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"
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.

THE FOOTBALL TEAM
THE TOWER 35
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
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.
The fellows were divided into squads,
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

form was shown by our team throughout the game. Irvin and Boggs made
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
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.

10 THE TOWER
Of the season of 1917 there is not much that can be said because it has
only just begun. But the season has begun with a rush. 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:
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. '

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.
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.
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
won the required number of points:

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.
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.
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.
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 Allegheny girls defeated
the Fifth Avenue girls in the Central Y. M. C. :X. Gymnasium, the score being
THE TUXYER 45
12 to 4. The game was very fast and exciting. 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.

year and feel assured that we are not "expecting" in vain.

Surely it has had a happy existence. 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."

The interest in dramatics which has made play giving one of the most
important of our school activities in former years, has not declined under
the leadership of the class of February nineteen seventeen. lt has become the
custom for each class, near the end of its senior year, to present a senior play.
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

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
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 must not forget to tell you of 'Snow XYhite and the Seven Dwarfsi'

tastical production ever given in our school and was given twice, XYednesday
afternoon, November the twenty-ninth and Friday evening, December the

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.

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."

As the Senior play, whieh was given, on Deeember hrst, came so near
Christmas, there was some question as to whether or not we Could present
a Christmas play. But as it would not have been Allegheny High Without
a play at Christmas, it was deeided to give one, although We had only a week
and a half to work on it. 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. No one could have suited the part of the fairy better than Jeanette
Singer. The other persons in the play played their parts equally well.

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

which was the feature of the evening.
Class Day is always a solemn occasion, and this one was no exception

Camera, Historical, German, Chemistry, Music and Reading clubs were
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
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.

lie was a Freshie, meek and mild,
Who never thought he could be wild,
Then he had neither friend nor foe,
.lust about three years ago.
He was a Sophomore clever, bright,
XYho thought he was a satelliteg
His face now wore no look of woe.
just about two years ago.
He was a junior, brave and true,
And all the little maids did woog
llut very prim and proper-so,
just about a year ago.
He was a Senior-best of all,
And like a tsapling, very tall:
Toward one big thing he now is bent.
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.
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-
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.
"Girls, girls, give us a chance!"

To--morrow, we have the most famous passage in all 'Latin Liteiatuie,
and "Girls, your seats."
'KNOW you don't have to do what l tell you: l'm just advising you."

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-

Say, did you ever hear -lean Singer sing?
Or watch Add Peffers add?
Or eat anything Howard Fry cooked.
Or know of XYilliam Hart losing his heart?
There is a bunch in three o won
VVho are always out for lots of fun.
The following members of this clan
You cannot beat. try hard as you can.
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
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.
Then there is dear old XYitch Hex,
Some people she does often vex.
And she delights in teasing Billy,
VVho sometimes acts a little chilly.
But lastly there is Al and Paul,
Our Helen too. not very tall,
just fourteen "fellows" row in all
ln this our great romantic hall,
Grace Braun's chief ambition
ls to be a society buclg
But we who know better, say
lt's only to entertain "Hud."
Peg is a sport,
And all things show itg
I thought so once,
And now I know it.
Kathleen, she is a Queen,
A queen? who for?

Pretty pink cheeks?
The boys all call her
At noon we wander thru the hall
XVith candy boxes hid.
Kid Strobel does upon us fall
And snatehes off the lid.
Some knew her as Lorna,
And some as Jean,
XYhatever her name,

Her name was Cora.
She was a dearg
So let's give her
A rousing cheer.
