Ting-a-ling-a-ling, sounded the
alarm clock. Swiftly and accurately
a pillow flew through the air, knock-
ing the alarm clock and the stand on
which it stood to the floor, causing
enough noise to awaken the entire
neighborhood, if it had not been so
"VVhat do you want. exclaimed a
voice, as a knocking was heard at the
door. At the same time the door flew
"It's half past tive, Red, and the
train leaves in ten minutes, Do you
want to be asked to hand in your
resignation now .
A small volcanic eruption seemed to
take place in the bed. The bed clothes
flew in all directions, and the touseled
sleepy-headed Red appeared in the
midst of the upheaval.
"For the love of Mike, Bob, why
didn't you call me before? How will
I ever catch the train, and what would
Nancy say if I was asked to resign ?"
As he was speaking, Red was hur-
riedly scrambling into his clothes and
three minutes later, with his collar
and tie in his hand and his coat over
his arm, hat perched on one side of
his head, Red rushed out of the door
and up the street towards the station.
Luckily for him he lived only four
squares away. QI-le was a mail clerk
on the Pennsylvania line and this was
his last trip before his vacationj
Left alone, Bob surveyed the room
with a smile on his face. "VVould he
ever have left if' I had given him the
letter which came for him P" said he
to himself. i
All that day and the next Bob
waited as patientlyas he could for the
return of Red. At last that time ar-
rived and he was watching at the win-
dow as Red swung up the steps.
"Hurry up, Red, get a move on,
here's a letter for you from Virginia."
At the word V irginia, Red entered the
room with a hop and a jump. Catch-
ing up the envelope and tearing it
open, he took one look at the contents,
caught Bob by the shoulders, swung
him around the room and ordered him
to begin packing at once. just look
at this Bob, a check from Dad, and an
invitation for you. Good old Dad !"
Such a hustling as took place ini
0 T H li XV AX II lol O U
that room! Shirts, ties, collars, hand-
kerchiefs, and various other articles
were shoved into a suitcase and in
half an hour Bob and Red were ready
to start forth again, this time for
Virginia. How slowly the time did
pass! The next day they landed in
a small town in Virginia. NVaiting
for them were Red's parents and a
group of Red's young friends. They
were hailed with shouts and cries of
delight. "Hello, old fellow, how's the
trip? Glad to see you. My, but you're
looking fine. Hey, Red. here's Nancy
patiently waiting to say hello."
By much maneuvering, the young
people were finally settled in the cars
and they started on their way to the
home of Red.
That night, after the evening meal
was over and the young people had di-
vided up somewhat and disappeared in
various directions, Red and Nancy
found themselves alone in the living-
rooni. Without any hesitation, Red
plunged into the subject which was
nearest his heart. "Nancy, you know
I've always loved you, won't you
marry me and go back North with
me when I go? You see I am mak-
ing good. I told you I would."
"Oh, Red, what made you ask me
"Nancy, has Dick asked you the
same question ?"
Although Red and Dick were the
best of friends, they were rivals in
love. At this moment Dick entered
the room and, seeing the expression on
their faces, he knew exactly what had
"Excuse me, I didn't know I was
"I am glad you came in, Dick, and
Nancy can decide now which of us
she will have."
"Oh, boys, I am so fond of you
both that I do not know for which of
you l care the most," said Nancy.
"You must decide now," said both
the boys at once.
"You boys both know that Colum-
bine is my favorite Hower. The one
who brings the first one this spring, I
will marry. Now please go." The
boys turned and left the room.
The weeks passed pleasantly and
many a good time was had, but the
day soon arrived for Red and Bob to
return to Pittsburgh.
The weeks passed swiftly and when
spring came Red and Bob handed in
their resignations from the mail serv-
ice and started again for Virginia.
This time there was no crowd to wel-
come them home, and the town seemed
quiet, for everyone was doing his bit
to help with the great war.
The next day after their arrival,
Bob and Red started on a trip over
the hills in search of Columbine. They
found everything but what they were
searching for. just as they were
starting for home, Red saw a few
buds that were nearly open and would
be fully so by the next day. Marking
the place so that they would be able to
find it, they turned their footsteps
toward home. Going over a rocky
path, Red slipped and fell, breaking
his ankle. As it was late afternoon,
Bob knew he would not have time to
go for help before darkness would he
upon him and it would be hard to
find his way back in those old Virginia
hills with help. So, lifting Red on
his shoulder, he managed to stagger
down the hill and by resting often
Bob was able to reach a small shanty
about five miles from home. Here he
obtained help and together they were
driven home in an ox-cart.
The next day Bob started for
Nancy's home to tell her about Red.
On his way he met Dick, hurrying
along at breakneck speed with a
Columbine in his hand. Hailing him,
he told him of Red's misfortune.
'l' ll E W A H ll O U 7
After hearing the whole story, Dick
threw his Flower in the street, turned
on his heel and walked away. The
next day he enlisted and in three
weeks was on the other side of the
ocean, fighting for his country.
Bob returned home and told Red
what Dick had done.
The next day Red received a let-
ter from Dick, telling him that he had
heard of his misfortune and would
not take advantage of it, that he was
enlisting and would probably' be sent
overseas. "I have a feeling, Red.
that I will not live to return. I am
leaving the field clear for the rightful
winner. May God bless you, and may
you always be happy."
Half an hour after Red received
the letter, he was on his way to see
Nancy. He shpwed her the letter and
told her all he knew.
Nancy and Red were married the
next spring and they spent their
honeymoon in, the hills of Virginia
hunting for Columbine.
About five months after Dick had
gone overseas, tthey heard that he had
been killed in action.
Bob's resignation was not accepted
and he was sent for to return to Har-
risburg to recelive his orders.

THE HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF '22
Let me take you back to the time
when the earth was covered with
dense foliage. when man groveled in
the dust of humiliation, when the
beasts were supreme. How well I
can see the picture: a cave in the hill-
side, a man within, cowering in trem-
bling fear! 'lust outside the cave I

in supreme contempt at the poor be-
nighted man. During this age, the
lion was not only king of the beasts.

were building. How remorselessly
the Pharaohs drove us! Only the fit-
test of us survived and--but the
picture again changes.
And then came the Renaissance-
that period when Cto quote Pancoastj
"men were full of energy and en-
thusiasm, and when they claimed free-
dom of thought and action," that
period which "introduced new sub-
jects of study and produced scholars
of a new type."
We asserted ourselzfesf We were a
class--an organized body. Our lead-
ers and ' officers were Kier Boyd,
Childs ulamieson, Charlotte Mears and
Robert Dixon. Our weapons were
our Egyptian reputations. VVe had
Ieau'a1'.s'--riot masters--we were willing
followers, not cowering slaves.
We also were introduced to new
subject of study: Burke, Chemistry,
Trigonometry. We, too, produced
scholars QFD of a new type, an en-
tirely new type from what A. H. S.
had ever seen.
To celebrate our awakening we held
a picnic at Riverview Park. VVe still
had the most profound respect for our
leaders, but that respect was based
upon love rather than upon fear. We
knew that they knew that we knew
not and we gladly followed them.
About two hundred and fifty of the
fittest of the fit survived this rebirth

this series-the Modern Era. Life is

We are nearing our goal-but there

completely, but we now know how to

THE XVAH HOU 9
TWO BOSTON BAGS
Summer vacation had at last ar-
'ived, and james Bradford, known as
'Jim" among his friends, was prepar-
ng to leave Harvard for New York,
vhere he was going to visit some
friends before going to his home in
However, just before his depart-
lre, he received a pleasant surprise in
he form of a telegram. It was a tele-
gram from an old friend of his
ather's, "Uncle Tim." It was an in-
'itation to a house party at Uncle
l'im's beautiful cottage at Lake Chau-
auqua. "I'll be there with bells on,"
aid a telegram which jim sent to
Incle Tim before boarding the Col-
inial Express" for New York.
Four days later found jim in pos-
ession of a chair on the New York
fentral, bound for Chautauqua.
There were not many people in the
ar, but even if there had been, jim
vould just as easily have noticed a
'ery beautiful fin his estimationj
'oung lady in a chair on the other side
if the car. He found himself lost in
dmiration. She was alone, too, and
im could not help wondering where
he was going.
"Gee, I'd like to know her l" sighed
im to himself. Then he remembered
e had been staring at her for the last
ve minutes, and, as jim was a very
fell mannered young gentleman, he
pparently became absorbed in the
ountry through which the train was
"VVh0 is she? Where is she going FH
im kept asking himself.
How he wished he knew her, or
new someone that knew her, but she
ras alone, and he was alone.
Now, there are two sides to every-
iing, and a Pullman car is no excep-
on. While jim was wishing he could
trike up an acquaintance, without be-
ing presumptuousx or violating any
rules of etiquette, lthe young lady on
the other side of the car was wonder-
ing who he was, and wishing he would
say something. i
Of course, our hero was handsome:
all heroes are. She noticed this, of
course, but she was always struck by
his athletic appearance and bearing.
But there seemed tio be something be-
sides thisg he seemed so cheerful,
though he didn't smile. His expres-
sion had a little Smile in it all the
time, and his bearing indicated that
he bore a good will toward everyone.
"VVhat a nice man," she said.
So they rode all day without speak-
ing, although each was wishing all the
time that the other would take the
.first step. j
The sun was just setting in the west
as the train stopped at the lake. The
young lady hurried, out with a Boston
"By cracky, she'is getting off here,
too!" said our hero to himself. He
took more time to get his baggage to-
gether, so he lost sight of her.
VVhen the steamer touched the dock
near Uncle Tim's cottage, it was- dark.
but Uncle Tim managed to find him
among the crowd ,and gave him a
hearty greeting. Most of the guests
had not yet arrived, so jim decided
since he was very tired from the long
trip, that he wouldinhit the feathers."
Having washed, helreturned from his
bathroom to his room and opened his
Boston bag. Out of it he pulled
He took a step backwards and
rubbed his eyes. NVhat was it? A
lady's kimonal Horrors! That was
enough for poor jim! He chucked
the objectionable article back into the
bag hurriedly and closed it. He fell
into a chair and mopped his brow with
10 THE XVXH HOU
a handkerchief. It was a lady's bag!
He was overcome, and leaned back in
the chair. His eyes lit on the bag and
he dashed over to it and threw it into
a corner behind the large chair.
"Out of my sightln gasped lim,
and collapsed on the bed.
"XVhat will I do with it, and what
am I going to do without my clothes ?"
How did he get that bag, anyhow?
Then he remembered That charm-
ing young lady in the Pullman car had
a Boston bag which looked exactly
like his. 'l'hey had been side by side
on the Hoor, and she has taken his
After a time, .lim plucked up cour-
age and walked over to the bag and
looked at its end. Un it were the ini-
tials, E. gl. B.
"Edith, Elizabeth. Ethel, Emma-I
wonder what it is," he said. Again
Jim dropped into a chair.
He had been sitting in this chair for
perhaps a quarter of an hour when he
heard a knock at the door. More
.lim jumped to his feet: what could
he do now? He was only a third
dressed. Fortunately -limls brain did
not desert him, although in his condi-
tion it would not have been surprising
if it had. He grabbed a spread from
the bed and wrapped it around hin
self. True, he looked like a Roman

jim opened the door. It was a mai
and the first thing -lim noticed abo'
this maid was that she held a Hostc
bag in her hand.
"Miss Brown says that she mu

lim's face lighted up and he hu
ried over and got the other bag. E

"Hurrah!" he shouted, he had l

party. VVhat more could he wish?

sociable man, but since he came from

He was just thirteen, an only son,
red haired and freckled, which may
have been an awful state of affairs
and which may have been trying to
him-but he was in a far worse pre-
dicament-he was in love.
His heart's desire, a very pretty lit-
tle girl, slightly smaller than he, was
the only daughter of the Vanders', a
family who were residing at their
summer home in the central and
most beautiful part of the town. Her
blue eyes and long curls gave her the
position of "the belle of juvenile so-
ciety" in Nelson. She could dance,
she had a bicycle all her owng in fact,
she had everything or could get every-
thing she desired.
To the younger members of the
town it would have meant "sure
death" if anything had been said
against her or her dog, in his presence.
In fact, he practically terrorized the
children with his threats of murder,
for he was king of the male society
there and held full sway over all mem-
bers. He had attained this position by
being able to turn hve cart-wheels in
succession, jump the highest and
shoot "commies, knee-heights" the
He may have been king of all he
surveyed in male society, but he soon
learned that to rule women was a dif-
ferent matter. He claimed her by
right of conquest-but, as all con-
querors do, he met his doom.
One day, while standing near her
gate for no fiarfirnlar reason what-
ever, he heard voices on her front
"1 hate frerkled faced kids, don't
you P" p
"Uh, my mother said it ain't nice to
talk----" just then old Parkins' ma-
chine passed, and all he could hear
was "faced children " lt was spoken
in a loud, haughty voice which he rec-
ognized to be "hers.',
He was now lost-she had said that
her mother said that it a'in't nice to
even talk to freckle faced kids, and
his face was just full of them!
The next day among the mail re-
ceived by the Brooks' was a letter for
"Master James Brooks." His mother
opened it and read:
You are rordially invited lo attend a party
Jllr. and Mrs. Vanders
in honor of
Miss Grace Vanders

Friday, July 9, 1922
53 Pennsylvania Avenue
Mrs. Brooks was filled with joy at
this evidence of the social prominence
of her son-but jimmy read it with 2
"Aw, what's the use of goin' to that
old party? They're a bunch 0:

ture's spots" he would have been verj
willing to go, but he was blest bj
nature. However, his mother said ln
was going to go-and go he must.
But he had freckles "splashed" al
over his face-and she hated freckles
He must get rid of them.
That night he scrubbed his face a

freckles appeared, and the scrubbing
made his face sore and red.
He once had read that lemon juic

worked for spots so much the bette
--that's what he had.
The next morning he ran down t
the drug store and got one of thos
medicine advertisement books tha

THE WAH HOU 13
He took two lemons from his
mother's pantry and went up to his
bedroom. He followed the directions
specifically, just according to the book,
but the book referred to clothes and
it was his face that was to suffer. He
was rubbing in the last half lemon
when his fingers slipped and in went
the "darn stuff" into both his eyes.
He rubbed them, he dried them, but
the harder he rubbed and the more he
dried, the more seemed to go in.
He soon managed to dilute the
lemon juice with water and once more
he was able to see through half closed
VVhat could he do now. Suddenly,
as not often before, an idea flashed
into his head! He would shave them
off. But where would he get a razor?
His father did not shave until Friday
night and he did not know where the
If he asked his mother for it she
would become excited and think that
he wanted to kill himself-then she
would watch him too closely and he
would get no liberties at all.
He wondered to himself if Frank,
the barber, could perform the opera-
tion. He ran upstairs and took
twenty-five cents from his bank. All
excited, with his heart beating rapidly,
he was about to open the door of the
barber shop when he noticed that the
barber had two customers--they would
tell everyone in town that jimmy
Brooks had his freckles shaved off-
and the town surely must know of her
dislike for freckles. Then she would
know that he had done it for her-
that wouldn't do, and the next barber
was six miles away.
He turned away and was not five
squares from the intended shaving
when he noticed Freddy Parkins-he
had a big brother!
"I'll give you five agates if you will
:git your kid's razor for me." The
price loomed big in Freddv's eyes and
jimmy had just finished locking the
bedroom door and placing the cold
steel edge to his face, when he heard
a whistle-then someone called, "Ho,
jimmy," "Ho, jimmy!" lt was
"VV'hat's a matter?', jimmy called
"Gee whiz, blinnny, our kid came
home and he needs his razor. I'll get
killed if I go home without it."
jimmy's mother heard, but through
the various noisesj round about, all she
could make out was "killed," "Jimmy,"
"razor," "home."l She ran hurriedly
upstairs and, Ending the door locked,
became more excited than ever.
"jimmy, what's the matter F" "Open
the door! ! !" j
Jimmy threw the razor out the win-
dow and disgustedly opened the door.
"Jimmy, are you hurt? Tell me!
What were you saying about 'razor'
"Aw, nothin' a'tall !" He turned
away for fear of more questioning
and ran downstairs into the yard.
That all happened Thursday.
On Friday at o'clock he prepared
to dress for the great occasion. He
scrubbed thoroughly in the hope that
a few stray freckles might come off
Then came the blow! He was to
wear a Buster Brown collar. If one
has ever seen a young colt being led
about prior to his being saddled--that
is the feeling one gets when he wears
a collar for the first time.
"I ain't goin' to wear no collar like
that !" J
But mothers will be mothers, so he
wore it. Then came the vital parting
of his hair-he couldn't find the part,
so he called downstairs, "Oh, maw, I
ainft goin' to that old party !"
"What's the matter now ?" a voice

that night and leave immediately.

was placed, and was soon wetting his

dragged the steel down his cheek in
one slow stroke, then up again. He

Hicted with an income tax report,
which was commonly referred to as It
by the family. He evidently had not
made a very good impression upon
her at dinner and had not improved
it any in the last few minutes.
THE WAH I-IOO 15
Meanwhile he resumed his work
tgain, but he found that he did not
rave the book that contained the
nemoranda of last year's income tax
'eport. He conducted a diligent
search on the desk, examined all the
nooks in the bookcase, then turned to
ihe desk again and searched through
:he drawers. In the last one he came
ipon an old snapshot album of his sis-
:er's. Out of curiosity he opened it
md paged through, amused at the
pictures of people they had known
ten years ago when they were boy
and girl. But suddenly his attention
was caught by the snapshot containing
a girl entirely surrounded by in-
numerable kittens. He recognized her
by the kittens. There had been only
one girl in their neighborhood who
had shown such a marked preference
for them. That girl was Sally Mc-
Bride, and Sally McBride was she.
He had good cause to remember
Sally. Sally had made a decided im-
pression upon him with her tists and
fingernails, for he had incurred her
righteous wrath by tying tin cans to a
great majority of her kittens and by
hanging the minority with their tails
tied together on his mother's wash
line. The boy next door, who was
quitc a bully, had dared him to do it.
"I wonder if she remembers me,"
bemused. just then the telephone
rang and picking up the receiver he
heard over the wire the voice of the
president of the firm telling him to
make arrangements to leave imme-
diately or as soon as possible for
' lie left an hour after, giving his
mother instructions concerning his
business and also telling her to get an
accountant, from the ofhce if possible,
if not to hire one to hnish lt.
His mother called up the otlice to
inquire whether an accountant could
be spared, but she was unable to se-
cure one. That evening at dinner table
his mother mentioned his need. His
sister turned to Sally and said:
"Oh, it's a shame! That old income
tax has caused more trouble than
enough. It was the cause of your re-
ceiving a bad impression of him, I'm
sure. And now he has gone and you
won't be able to see him and know
him when he is really himself."
"VVhy can't I hx that report F" Sally
asked. "lt will only take me a short
time and it will save a lot of trouble.
Please allow me td do it."
"You're a dear," his sister answered.
"VVon't he be pleased when he comes
home and iinds it finished."

hard and diligently at it for two hours

it was the semaphore signal to direct

belligerent attitude, as he stood with
outspread arms and cheeks Haming
with the united effort of blowing his
whistle and retaining his quid, I made
an abrupt about face, stepped out of
the way of two Buicks, over a Ford,
and directly in front of an on-rushing
truck. jumping to the curb, I looked
around in time to see the driver put
his hand to his heart and register ab-
iect disappointment. He had missed

Then, realizing he was wasting time
which was both "precious" and "gold-

blonde soda expert, who was apprais-
ing himself in the only part of the
wall mirror not utilized by white-
washed letters. The blonde beauty
looked round with a bored air, hnished
correcting the alignment in the parting
of his hair, then produced the check
for which the M. A. T. waited.
The M. then started across Ohio
Street just in time to see his friend,
the traffic cop, momentarily forget his
pomposity in avoiding a machine
driven by a woman. The minion
of the law struck a pose, put his hands
on his hips, and glared at her, swal-
lowing tobacco and words.
But the M. A. T. did not stop to
gather round with the inevitable mob
that surrounds anything from a Korn
Kure demonstration to a side street
Socialist. He was a victim of cursed
melancholy. Mounting the steps to
the statue of "The Reading Black-
smith," he sat down to decide what he
should tell the staff in the morning.
"Interview, interview, interview," he
sighed, not realizing he spoke aloud.
"I can't get one anywhere."
"An interview is a mutual sight or
view, a conference 3 also the published
statement of the material so obtained,

There was no one near! Could he
have been dreaming?
"It can also be used as a verbg to
converse, confer or confabulate. You
can't fool me on a word," the melli-
Huous voice continued.
The M. A. T. then realized it must

folded on the desk before him slowly clasped and unclasped. He swallowed
hard two or three times and blinked rapidly as a tear slowly oozed out from
the corner of his eye and took its course down toward the end of his slightly
turned up nose. NVith a doleful sigh he came out of his reverie, and with a
hasty glance about the room, brushed the unmanly tear aside. Then sighing

The 1922 Band of Allegheny High
School is recognized as one of the
best bands ever turned out in the
school. The organization of the
Band was very difficult, owing to
the fact that the Band is made up of
Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and
Seniors, and that a schedule had to
ble m-ade up which would ht the

for the school several times this
year. It opened the Baseball Season
with a parade to Phipps Field. It

tunities to represent the school in
the near future, namely, to play for
a corner stone laying in one of the
city's new schools, and to play in
ichapel again for the Seniors, and for
the Sophomores. The credit of or-

The Allegheny Hi-Y has just tin-
ished one of its most successful years.
The membership was larger than it
has been for several years. Under
the able guidance of Chief Xkilliams.
the club steadily and successfully
strove towards its object, namely. to
lift Allegheny higher. Over 200 fel-
lows were interviewed in M. Lf F.
week, a banquet and reception was
given to the football team, and later
in the year, to the basketball players.
One of the best events of the whole
year was a reunion held for all .Xllef
gheny Hi-Y members since the forma-
tion of the club in l9l2, with the
present members serving as hosts.
'lihe season's program included
many fine speakers, including llr. ll.
H. Davis, joe Mears, Reverend G. A.
Long, Mr. il. C. Mace, Mr. and Mrs.
VVill Cressy, Tom Anderson, R. A.
Mellowel, Herb Mcfracken and Mr.
Li. l'. Vlluertenberger. The otiicers
were: Childs Jamieson, presidentg
blames Neal, vice president, and .lohn
Gordon, secretary. The treasurer for
the first semesteriwas Robert Mckiune.
and at his graduation in February.
McThesney Adams was elected.
'lihe club is losing Chief XVilliams
next year, the pressure of his outside
work being too great for him to con-
tinue as club secretary. Mr. Rope.
from llultalo, will have charge next
year and is expected to keep the club
up to its present high standard.

Reverend M. B. Sloan
The reason that the class of 1922
dedicated this year book to .Reverend
Sloan is, of course, the fact that he
is the "Father of Allegheny High,"
having drawn up the resolution to
establish a high school in the old City
of Allegheny, now the :North Side.
But this is by no means Mr. Sloan's
only claim to a niche in the hall of
fame. To quote Mr. Sloan himself,
"There were but two things that kept
me from being president of the
United States-the nomination and
the election." But seriously speaking,
he was Captain of Company F, 105th
Illinois Infantry during the Civil War,
a member of the Board of Education
that established the first high school
in the City of Allegheny, and is at
present Chaplain of the Baptist Or-
phanage of this city. Mr. Sloan was
85 years "young" on the 13th of June,
and if the wishes of the students of
the Allegheny High School come true,
he will be spared for many more years
of usefulness and happiness.

The idea is for the Freshmen to cap-

figure is dragged from the mill by a
group of high-minded, good-hearted
boys who believe the overheated
youth should have a nice cold

mob of allies to his side, and the cap-

A Defense of the Flapper
Who and what is this much-talked
of person-the American flapper?
Most countries have a special name
by which they designate young girls
in their teens, the are called fiedglings,
buds, debs, and what not. In our
own country, we call them Flappers.
However, "VVhat's in a name ?"
Of course the fiapper is being criti-
cized today, as was the bud, or the
debutante, or the fledgling, of 25
years ago. Does the flapper deserve
all this criticism? Did the debutante
deserve it 25 or 50 or 75 years ago?
The girl of today is, fundamentally,
no different from the girls of any
It is natural in the period following
a war, for the youth of the country
especally, to break from the bonds of
restraint. They become gay and care-
free as a natural reaction from the
depression caused by the war. Who
cared to dance and play when our
boys were being shot down on for-
eign fields? And now the pendulum
has swung back! Is the flapper noth-
ing but a candy-eating, soda-drinking,
empty-headed person with no ambi-
tions, no ideals, no serious purpose in
life? No! No! 'No! Is she the
sophisticated, self sufiicient, heartless
creature that the older generations
consider her? Again, No!
If the flapper does fail to take her
responsibility as seriously as her
mother did 25 years ago, whose fault
is it? Her parents are to blame. They
do not thrust family responsibility on
these young people-how can they ex-
pect them to develop a sense of respon-
sibility? Parents, teachers, and pas-
tors know so little about the younger
generation that they do not build up
intimate relations with them. As one
modern flapper explained the situa-
tion, "Mother, you just don't under-

OUR DRAMATIC ACH IEVEMENTS
The dramatic history of the class
of '22 has been a glorious one. As
her representatives have starred on
the athletic Held and Hoor, so they
have advanced the art of Shakespeare
and jonson in A. H. S.
As usual, however, the class dicl
not appear much before the public
until its last semester. But when it
did it came with the proverbial
"bang" The members were well pre-
pared from their intensive training in
Miss Howe's classes to take up the
work where the preceding class left it.
They were first called upon to co-oper-
ate with the Teachers' Association in
producing a masque, "The Wlasterf'
The success of this undertaking was
largely due to the tireless efforts of the
VVhen the school was again at nor-
mal after the irregularities caused by
the masque, the seniors turned to the
task of furnishing programs for Lit.
Any member of the Literary Society
can Well testify to the unexcelled re-
sults of these efforts, for the quality
of the declamations, recitations, mono-
logues and even orations, is without
equal in the annals of tlie society.
Also the Oral Expression classes pre-
pared a number of plays for I.it.

"DEMAND AND ATTEND BETTER PLAYS"--Mr. Kenyon
"I wonder who that good looking
girl can be?" muttered the Man
About Town as he watched the dis-
missal of Schenley High. "Kier Boyd
says there is one pretty girl at Schen-
ley. Maybe that is she."
A dignified, thoughtful young man
came down the hall. "A senior, no
doubt," surmised the M. A. T. "A
senior of great promise."
"Pardon me !" said the Man step-
ping forward, "Could you direct me
to Mr. Kenyon ?"
"Mr, Kenyon ?" repeated the digni-
fied young man with surprise. "I am
The M. A. T. mentally apologized,
but Mr. Kenyon would never realize
he had been mistaken for a high
"So you are the interviewer from
the Wah Hoo ?" questioned Mr. Ken-
yon. "Let us go to my office."
Seated in the office, embarrassed by
Emerson's critical gaze from the cor-
ner and disapproved of by Thackeray,
who looked down in cool superiority,
the M. A. T. began:
"As president of the Pittsburgh
Centre of the Drama League of Amer-
ica, Mr. Kenyon, could you inform us
of some of the causes for the deca-
dence of the modern drama ?"
"The main reasons," he answered
immediately, "are the lack of good
playwrights and the acquisition of
wealth by an uncultured set who now
occupy the orchestra instead of the
gallery. Their only demand is the
privilege of keeping time with one
foot to the 'Won't You Write U-s a
Letter' song, sung by the 'ladies of
the chorus,' as they hold out pencil:
and pads with stagey coquettishness
This set now controls the theatre, anc
in catering to them the trusts' have
lowered the standards."
"Don't you think the war might bi
responsible in a Way?" ventured th'
M. A. T. "The war is the scapegoa
for everything, from crime waves ti
"Yes," laughed Mr. Kenyon. "Ni
one can disprove it. And, in trutli

farces and superficial musical come-
dies usurping the stage today. It is a
natural result, for tensity is generally
succeeded by laxityg it has been so in
the past. These are the main reasons
why today instead of seeing Ibsen's
'Doll's House' we see the 'Country
House' of Dick Harrington.. Dick
and his roadster and tenor voice and
tennis racquet are entertaining the
ladies of the chorus, now 'society
debutantesf Instead of Moliere's
'Middle Class' we see the 'Middle
Room,' where all sorts of antics and
acrobatics last through three hours
because some slightly befuddled gen-
tleman enters another gentleman's
"This truly seems to be a period of
deterioration in the theatre," said the
M. A. T. "Does the drama flourish
and fall in cycles like music and litera-
ture, M-r. Kenyon ?'.'
"It does," answered he, "but not
so often and so decidedly as the other
arts. In fact, there-have been only
about three great eras in the history
of the stage. Its first, during which
the drama grew in the hands of men
like Sophocles, ZEschylus and Eu-
ripedes, the Golden Age of Athens.
has in some respects never been
equaled. Since that time there have
been only two great sustained rises
in the theatre-in an eon of over two
thousand years! The first came in
England at the end of the Renaissance
and was led by Marlowe, Shakespeare
and jonsong the second did not occur
until nearly 1900, and was fostered
mainly by Jones, Ibsen and Pinero.
And it is a strange fact that each of
the three ages was lead by three mas-
ter dramatists. However, there were
several masterpieces created between
these renaissances, as 'Everymanf the
greatest of the many moral and mir-
acle plays of medieval times, and Gold-
smith's 'She Stoops to Conquerf But
these plays mark no Age of Drama:
they are like Gray's Elegy, written
during a period of poetic decline."
By this time Mr. Kenyon had re-
ceded deeper ini his chair, while the
conversational sort of interview had
caused the M. A. T. to forsake his
business-like attitude Qwhich is a lot
harder to assume on a spring day,
anyhow.j Then in a voice far from
the clear, crisp ltone of an alert re-
porter, the Man, remarked, "You say
there are but two peaks in the Range
of Drama? Then surely there must
have been valleys of decline------of de-
"Sounds like Pilgrinfs Progress,"
smiled Mr. Kenyon. "Peaks of Prog-
ress and Valleys of Decline and De-
spair. Yes. there were many Sloughs
of Despondency. Can you remember
the old Bijou, now l.oew's Lyceum?"
"Remember ?" exclaimed the Man.
"No one could ever forget the Bijou."
"These plays like 'Bertha, the Seam-
stress,"' continued Mr. Kenyon,
"which were made up of an invalid
mother who never complainedg a hero
with an iron profile and big enough to
look impressive when he knocked
down the villain with a 'Take that,
you dirty dog l' g' and Bertha---torn be-
tween dishonor and saving her
mother's health. But the beautcous
Bertha always saved both."
The M. A. T. laughed and an-
swered: "And the 'feature melo-
dramas' that were built around a
single mechanical device, the saving
of Sadie from the sawmill, or Thel-
ma's thrilling release from the rail-
road tracks to which she was tied as
the toy train galloped like a glacier
across the stage. And whenever the
hero did not quite unloose the hero'-
ine's bonds in time, the gigantic jug-
gernaut considerately chugged with its
nose in her side until the Seigfried
frantically finished his death-defying
deed. These plays required a hero
102 T H E VV A H H O O
who could heave his chest and a vil-
lain who could sneer and leer and
rant, and wear a big black mustache
-and whisper loud enough for even the
gallery to hear. And he simply had
to be able to leave the stage with
cackles of fiendish glee and rantings
of diabolical rage. VVhat a terrible
condition in the theatre," sympathized
the M. A. T., "when a man was a vil-
lain if guised in a two-quart hat and
-a hit and run suit, and a hero if clad
only in working clothes. The stage
of today is 100 per cent better!" de-
clared the Man, with all the effotism
of his age.
"Like all adolescents," murmured
Mr. Kenyon, half aloud, drawing up
from the depths of his chair. He then
added, "The stage of today is not
much better. What are the plays that
most people go to see? 'Scandals of
'22,' 'Hello, Hortensel' and 'Up in
Ruthie's Room.-' And instead of
M0liere's 'Don Juan' or 'The Middle
Class,' we see nothing but shows like
'Maid in America' with the chorus
moving to and fro in the old one, two,
three step. while Dick sings 'I Love
Them All' And it is a poor reHection
on Pittsburgh and America that the
'Bat,' a claptrap. antiquated melodrama
with slamming doors and oh:-stage
cries, and 'l.ightin',' a comedy-drama
with all the sympathy-stirring ingre-
dients used in melodramas of the day
we were laughing at, should be the
two most popular plays in America
"The old melodramas are not dead.
They are living in these photoplays
that press agent as 'Tremendous Love-
dramas in which Smiles, Tears and
lrfeart-Throbs are welded together by
a Master Hand !' No, just because we
see how foolish our grandparents were
does not prove that we shall not be so
to our own grandchildren."
Then with a cordial handshake and
a pleasant word of parting Mr. Ken-
yon closed the interview.
The office grew dim in the gather-
Emerson turned, and said to Byron,
"The modern plays are poor, but there
is Compensation in the younger dra-
matists such as OlNeil."
"Man marks the earth with ruin,"
said the cynical Byron.
"1 see where I made my mistake in
writing for the theatre," sighed
Shakespeare. "The audience must not
Shelly, alone, looked out of the
window, dreamily. "The heaven is
mauve and the crescent moon is like
a scimitar in the east. The vault is
becoming violet-a deeper and deeper
purple. The silver stars shimmer like
the points on the spears of the gods.
And there, beneath the opalescent
glow of yonder are light, paces that
boy interviewer. He has been waiting
half an hour for a car."

The plot is the story of the attempt
of the four children of an old South-
ern family to raise sufficient funds to
defray the expenses of their father
who is in Europe for his health, and
to pay the mortgage on their home.
To do this they are forced to rent their
quaint old mansion to a rich North-
erner. The Northerner rents it only
on condition that it be equipped with
a staff of white servants, and herein
lies our tale, for the servants fail to
appear when wanted and in despera-
tion the brothers and sisters decide to
act as the servants until the real
estate agent, an old friend of the fam-
ily, and admirer of the older daughter,
can secure others.
Julia Hill played the part of the
beautiful Southern girl, masquerading
as cook and trying to keep her, broth-
ers and sister on peaceful terms with
the guests, in a most charming man-
ln making the production of the
play the success it was. the senior
class received invaluable aid from the
woodwork, arts and crafts, and type-
writing departments, for which it
takes this opportunity to sincerely
thank these and all others who helped
in any way.

"Ain't it a grand and glorious feel-
ing, Alf ?"
Al Schmidt entered the Hall of
Fame by pitching a "Perfect Game"
against Fifth Ave. on the Soho Field
on Monday, May the 22nd, Only 6
of the Fifth players got a whiff at
the ball for 21 of them carried their
bats back to the bench.
The game was one-sided, as the
score, 20-0, shows but up till the last
two innings when we gathered in a
dozen runs. Fifth held us with the
exception of the fifth when we gath-
ered 7 markers.
Triples by Alf and Van Horn and
a homer by Stotz were the hitting
features. "Audie" Cochran connect-
ed for four safe wallops, one of them
a double. On his other two trips to
the plate he got sacriiice hits, so all
in all it wasn't a bad clay's work.

In Which We Uphold Our Record
Gnce more Alf's trusty wing led
us to victory, backed by the war
clubs of the champions of the city.
for this 15-0 victory gives us that
Only one Schenley man reached
first base, and he didn't hit-Alf just
passed him for "Good Luck."
There were not many features
only that our "Old Reliable" Van
Horn hit a homer with the bases
full-and that is not all-the next
time up he hit a double with three
on the paths. A pretty good day's'
work for him. He deserves credit.
Allegheny High can now boast of

This One Was Great

2nd of June to defeat Allegheny in
the first game of the VV. P. I. A. L.
elimination series, but they were
sadly disappointed, Allegheny win-
ning the game by a score of 12 to 0.
Al Schmidt, our star, pitched a
fine game, having 16 strikeouts and
allowing only l walk and 3 hits.
His work at the bat was note-
worthy also as he had four hits,
among them a triple and a double.
His team mates starred at the bat
also, McCaw having a home run and
Van Horn and Stotz each having
doubles. The whole team altogether
had 13 hits.
.Allegheny gave Al time support,
only one misplay being charged
Butler played loose in the field,
having 5 errors which allowed two
or three of the 12 runs.
Their pitchers were ineffective,

tue of a 69-39 victory over South
The first meet showed a well bal-
anced team. No one man stood out
as the big point getter, a condition
that is more desirable than having
two or three stars do all the work.
We have one man who has a good
chance to break the interscholastic
record in his eventg viz., Lutz in the
Spotts and Yochan took third in
the 100 yd. and 50 yd. respectively

and shot, and Luty with first in the
75 yd. dash for Seniors and the high

Van Horn gave promise of break-
ing the record for the discus with

outclassed the jumpers as did Bill

maker surely stepped in the dashes
and I'll dolf my chapeau to the man
that shows him his heels.
For the second time the mile re-
lay went to us by forfeit.
Both South and Fifth failed to
place teams against us in the event.
Evans, Durbin, Weinman and

failed to get tlieir points. Tough

It was the year 2008. The main
street of Fitchburgh, West Va., was
crowded with people of every nation-
ality. Bells were sounded, whistles
were blowing, street-cars jangling-
all helping to do their share in the

of mystery, and on the whole every
thing was bustle and confusion.
Everybody was asking everybody
else what they were looking at. Was
it a fire, a hold-up, a robbery, a mur-
der, or what was it? Finally a man
in front yelled at the top of his voice.

WHOLESALE and RETAIL
At a southern railway station it
is the custom of the darkies to sell
chicken-patties and other delicacies
to passengers. A passenger who had
enjoyed a patty was leaning out of
the Window to buy another, asked of
the dusky salesman:
"VVhere do you get your chick-
The darky rolled his eyes. "You
all f'om de No'th, ain't you, sah?"
"Yes," was the reply, "But why do
you ask that?"
"Cause sah, no gem'1'm'n f'om de
South ever asks a nigger whor he
gits his chicken."--The Argonaut.
