CONNIELL, Clfrk ALLEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL-1924 History of the School HE completion of the new building in the year of 1917, marks the beginning of the Allen Township Centralized School. Previous to this, the schools were not centralized. The pupils attended small one-room buildings in the district or a brick building of four rooms in Van Buren. Even before this, school had been held in the latter place in a two room, frame building, now known as, the Town Hallf' The construction of the present building was supervised by Mr. J. C. York, who then became its first Superintendent. The first winter was one of extreme cold and later threatened with an epidemic of smallpox. School was suspended for a few days, and the building and equipment carefully fumigated. When school opened no child nor teacher could be admitted, unless he could present his certificate of vaccination to the mayor who stood at the north entrance. The next three years were under the Supervision of Mr. C. D. Hindall. With his aid and influence an interest was developed in Athletics, Manual Training, Inter- class Contest, Domestic Science for the girls and Smith-Hughes work in Agriculture for the boys. The present Superintendent, Mr. J. C. Copeland, succeeded in bringing to our school the Smith-Hughes work for girls, Vocal Music for all grades, under the direction of Mrs. M. I. Chicote, and Instrumental Music and the Orchestra under the direction of Prof. Carl Twining. Hot lunches have been served every day to all children for the past three years at a low cost. The lunches have been prepared by Miss Hanna as assistant. During the entire history of the new building Mr. Cramer has been the faithful Janitor. The High School, has grown from 54 pupils and four teachers at the beginning of l9l7 to 112 pupils and six teachers at the present time. The present enrollment of the Grades is 327 making a total of 439. Seven trucks, all but one of them mak- ing two trips morning and evening, are used to transport the pupils to and from school. The High School is out-growing its rooms and is looking forward to an addition and an enlargement of the Auditorium with a built-in stage. 1 CLIFTON MYGRANT T 'WV 4. - ----.-.-- - - . -.-....- - --Q-,...... - --'- --.. --r A--,M-V-U - - Seven AL LEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL 9 Q...

Twelve LEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL- 192.4 History of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-four T was in September, 1920, that our class composed of twenty-two members first entered High School. XVe were called green by the upper classmen at that time but probably there was sufficient reason. The majority of us were small, the girls wore short dresses and.the boys, knee trousersg but we WGFS Very ambitious and eager to learn. After attending High School for a week, we were given a reception at one of the country homes a short distance from town. XVe were terribly frightened over the inia- tion, but afterward, an enjoyable evening was spent, Most of us were very timid and many times we failed to report at the Assembly Hall for study along with the upper classmen. It always seemed more convenient to remain in the Freshman room. On occasions of this kind the teachers found it necessary to demand our attendance and finally our timidity was somewhat over- COITIE. One of the greatest events of the year was the Inter-Class Contest in which we took part with much. enthusiasm. Although we failed to win we were proud to have the honor of displaying more pep in yells and songs than any of the other classes. Before the close of the term we lost a few members who found it necessary to move with their parents into other communities. but we still had the largest Fresh- man class in the history of the school. After vacation, we entered the Sophomore class with great eagerness. yVe no longer cared for the little Freshman room but were willing to take our places in the Assembly Hall. Our motto, VVork and VVin proved its worth that year inasmuch as we were victorious in the Inter-Class Contest. For this reason, our class orator. James Fisher, and our quartet composed of Juanita Edwards, Iva Schwab, Bessie Stallbohm and Louise IQeRodes, were chosen to take part in the County Oratorical Contest held at McComb- This we also won with great honors for the school. At the beginning of Olll' Junior year we realized that more responsibilities were ours to assume. Also our studies were more difficult compared with those of pre- vious years, On December 15th we rendered the play entitled, A Strenuous Life, which was successful in all respects. In fact it was appreciated so much that we were asked to repeat itg but after due consideration, we decided in the negative. On May 10th we entertained the Senior class of 1923 at a delightful banuet in the school dining room. The 'LLittle Symphony Orchestra from Findlay fur- nished music throughout the evening. At the beginning of our Senior year, we each possessed an air of dignity. VVe were ready to begin the last part of the journey that would place us Out of School Life and into Lifes' School, VVe had a greater feeling of personal responsibilityand a. desire to make the most of every fleeting moment. VVe learned that the talent of success is to do well everything that we attempt without a thought of fame. The class was represented in the boys' basketball team by Harold Hartman, James Fisher and Lester Ensign: in the girls' team by Burnette Burrell and Louise DeRodes. Each took an active part and displayed considerable ability in the games as well as loyalty to the teams. Again we were successful in winning the annual inter-Class Contest of April 3rd. Not only was our average grade higher than that ot the other classes, but each of our contestants won first place. Consequently our school was represented in the County Oratorical Contest held at the Findlay College Chapel on April 11th and 18th by the following: Bessie Stallbohm, Juanita Edwards, James Fisher. Iva Schwab, and Louise DeRodes. On May 16th we will present the play entitled Pol1yanna with the intentions of giving to the public an enjoyable evenings entertainment. ive are also contem- plating taking a trip to Niagara Falls shortly after the close of the term. After the Commencement exercises of May 22nd, we will step into the arena of active citizenship and try the realities of the practical world for which we have been preparing. VVe fully realize that, Labor is life 'tis the still water faileth, Idleness ever despaireth, bewailethf' Our members have decreased until the final number of those who are to receive the honors of graduation is seventeen. But each of us have a strong determination in our minds to VVork and Win. LOUISE DE RODES -x- -- V - :----- f- - V fa- Thirteen LEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL-19 I Senior Class Prophecy UST at the close of day as the sun was slowly sinking beneath the western horizon I felt weary because of graduation week. Vlfishing I might think and dream, I sank down in it big' chair. Almost instantly it seemed as though I Was carried away by swift wings and placed down by a body of water whose extent I could not guess but where waters washed strange lands. I walked down the shores and entered a forest so dark I could only see the outline of mighty trees and in the distance could hear the breakers dashing upon the rock bound shore. Feeling that I was now in the land of perfect rest, I sat down upon the soft moss to con- template on my surroundings. yVhile thus in perfect repose I heard a rustling sound. Soon there appeared be- fore my eyes a phantom form saying, Ile not afraid, I am the Spirit of Prophecy, the Angel of things to come. VVith her mystic touch she rolled back the curtain of the dim Beyond and permitted me to gaze down the vista of things yet to be, that I might behold all things that are, transformed into all the things that they should yet become. Then pointing down the long avenues in the strange land she said, Now your eyes are open and the future is made clear to you. Prophesy to the members of the High School Class of 1924 what things shall come to pass in their lives as the years roll on and the sands of life run out.'i As I looked into the land of the future, I could discern moving among the dim shadows of the people, the familiar faces of those fair and radiant beings who were my classmates, now charged and transformed into citizens of the great outside world. In the distance I behefd a great building. Rising from my mossy seat I sped thither to see what it might contain. I soon found that the -Spirit of Prophecy had eliminated both time and space so that what seemed moments might be years and what seemed rods might be thousands -of miles. As I entered the building, I found myself in a strange land and among strange people. A brightly dressed guard, bowed low as I entered and I asked him to show me the master of the house, He took me through long marble hallways where walls were richly carved, and hung with the most beautiful pictures. We entered a splendid room which was furnished with all the things which could be pleasing to the eye and bring comfort to the body. We approached a shining desk at the far ei1'd of the room when from behind us arose a young lady who was arrayed in all the splendor of the Queen of Sheba. As I approached her I fairly screamed, l Louise DeRodes- Yes, there she was, having realized her highest ambition to become the head ot a great school in a foreign country- I could stay but a few minutes to listen to her story of struggle and splendid success, for there were many more to see. My prophetic eye suddenly caught lsight of a great crowd that was rapidly filling a building ii, a large city. NVfth much difficulty I pushed my way through U19 Yhfllng- Then I learned a man was on trial for his life. As I approached the court room I heard the voice of a prominent lawyer pleading the cause of a prisoner at the bar. There were many tear-stained faces before that passionate pjleat for life 21115 liberty was ended and the jury filed -out to consider the vlerdict. Almost 'mmediately it returned and the foreman said Not guilty. 'Phere was :L .wild scream as the mother of the liberated boy rushed over to the brillialft lawyer to thank him for his splendid service, Vvhen he stood a shout went up from the crowd and as he turned to bow his acknowledgment, I recognized him as James Fisher, our Orator of High School days. Here the scene changed and I entered a great building where a splendid orchestra was entertaining a large audience. VVhat place is this, I asked the usher who showed me to a seat. This is the Edwards Institute of Music. That is the manager leading the orchestra. She employs dozens of teachers and has many hundreds of students. Sihe is a musical business wonder. As the music ceased I grabbed her by the hard, and sure enough, it was .luanitn Edwards. She led me to the group of players and there I saw Grace Mitchell, Iva Schwab and Harold Hartman. She told me that these were three of her best teachers and that she was very proud of them. When I had recovered from my astonishment I said, Do you krow what has become of Hesse Stallhohm? 'iOh, yes, she replied, She is the head of the English department of the State University, which is located not far from here. I will take you over there and see if she will remember you, I closed my eyes for just a second to help collect my thoughts. When I opened them l was in a place I had never been before and my friends with whom I had just spoken vanished from my sight. I looked around and saw that I was in 2. large and wonderful beauty parlor. I wondered Why I had been brought here so I ...-.-...-...-.......-.-........-...... ......-.. 1-, -.,.., -.-.-. - :- - I' aurteen ALL EN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL- 1924 went over to one of the girls and asked who the manager was. Much to my surprise- she replied, Miss Nelly Brandeberryf' She showed me to her room and there I found my classmate as young and beautiful as when we were in school together. But the crowded city vanished. I stood lookirig M H SUHHSQ D19-tf01'm and wondered what it was. Suddenly there was a whirling sound and an aerolilime gently settled on that platform. A dozen pair of hands commenced taking off the mail bags, and I realized that this was the trans-continental air mail service. In a couple of minutes the exchange was made and the big wheels commenced to turn. Then I recognized a familiar face in the pilot house and shouted, Loy-Loy Powell, at the top of my voice, but the noise was so great he did not hear ,me. He was soon but a tiny speck far up in the sky as he sped away to the next station, three hundred miles to the west. Next I stood before a splendid home Sul'l'0l,1l'ld9d by a large orchard and fertile fields as far as the eye could see, I rang the bell and anxiously wilifed U' filld 0'-it who the owner of such a home might be. As I stood there wondering, the door opened, and I beheld a tall, graceful man whom, inspite of his long beard, I recog- nized as Lester Ensign. When we were comfortably seated in the parlor, I asked him how he had ?lCCl1l'l'1Uli1l9d such wealth. He said, he had developed a seedless blackberry which had brought him his fortune- After congratulating him on his success, I com- menced to inquire about our ,scattered class- Have vou heard of Burnette Burrell? Yes, he replied, You remember she went to Cleveland on leavirg High School. She was very successful in Nurse's training and has been recently promoted to matron in the new hospital, the largest in the world. 'Buss' 1Donald Hartb was always a smart chap.

He was disappointed in love, left his home and became a wanderer. He traveled from place to place, in several countries but at last settled down in a quiet and beautiful home. Later, he recordled the story of his wanderings in books, which are fast becoming famous the world over. 1 thmlght I had foufld 2111 my classmates and was proud to find them in such high positions in life but was astonished to fiitd that none of them were married. when I remembered I had forgotten Lenore Trout. I asked Lester about her and he informed me that she had married a very prosperous man and was now living in one of the most beautiful homes in the city of New York. I was about to set forth on my journey to go to her home when the Spirit of Prophecy suddenly rolled down her mystic curtain and the future was forever closed to my eyes. Awakening I realized that it had all been a dream but my next thought breathed a hope that each of us would really fill our places in life, worthy of the preparation and days spent in the Van Buren High School. -FLORA AVSENBAUGH.

It was with a desire that our four years would be a success that we chose as our motto, 'lOnward to Success. For our class colors we chose blue and white. VVe were duly initiated about a week after school began, when a splendid reception -was held in the High School Auditorium by the upper classmen. ln the fall of 1922, our class of thirty were privileged to occupy the hard earned but honorable rows of Sophomore seats in the assembly room. We took long strides in our second year to accomplish our purpose and excell the record made the previous year. ln the inter class contest we succeeded in gaining first place and had our name engraved on the silver cup. Our instrumental music and short story won first and represented our school in the county contest. The trials of the two years have been only stepping stones to the goal we wished to ieach and the title of junior has been won. Culver Gorsuch, who as president, successfully guided us through our Sophomore year, was re-elected for another year. Great dramatic ability was shown in the successful presentation on January 4th of our Junior class play, HAnd Home Came Ted. VVe did not gain such high honors in the inter-class contest this year but we feel that our record is one of which to be proud. VVe have been well represented in football, basketball and track during our entire three yearsg several have received letters. VVe also feel elated since our Junior boys won the championship in the inter-class basketball tournament this year. These are only a few of the things accomplished in our three years of school life. A We regret very much that several of our classmates have withdrawn, but with the twenty-seven remaining our enthusiasm and pep have not diminished. We look forward to the time when we may be called Seniors and we have great hopes for our last year in high school. -CONSTANCE DUFFIELD. e ,,.f.z.-4-5-I i i -1---------- ----- K....., -.-. .. . f - --1.

Eighteen A LEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL-1924 History of the Sophomore Class T is indeed a great pleasure to the historian of the class of 1926 to compile the history of such a brilliant CU class. One September day, in fact a very memorable day to the class of '26, the upper classmen of Allen Township High School, looked with good natured tolerance down upon a class of extraordinary verdancy. Nevertheless, teachers and upperclassmen alike soon began to recognize, yes, and to even appreciate us, for they realized that we were an asset to their beloved A. T. H. S. ln athletics our class shone, for our boys contributed considerable assistance to the football team by practicing to the utmost of their ability. Likewise in basket ball both our boys and girls gave their best to the school team, and three of the girls were rewarded by first team letters. The High School chorus was greatly augmented by our presence, and when the orchestra was organized, again our class came to the fore by furnishing a goodly percent of its players. Our next brilliant success was at the lnterclass Contest, where our upperclass- men were gathered in gala array to assist in and witness our defeat. And they were not disappointed. We came out in the rear. However our reading won first with a large margin, and placed high in the county Oratorical Contest. In track, again we lived up to our standards by winning the Interclass Field Meet, and many of the members of our class assisted in helping the school to Win the County Track Meet. After a well spent vacation we gathered again in our classic halls and once more maintained our high standards of excellency. ln fact, this year among our numberous wonders we have proved to our teachers that we can nearly bisect an angle and that we can successfully ride a steed through the Gallic War. Once more our boys worked hard on the gridiron and several from our class participated in the games, hence the high reputation which A. T. H. S. football team created for itself last football season. Then the ever welcome basketball season 'round again and the captain of the girl's team was elected from our class. Morever, five out of ten on the team came from the sophomore class. And also the boys, by carrying on the work which they began last year, helped to make of our team what it was. At the lnterclass Contest our class placed second, with three out of five num- bers winning second. ' To say the least, we have not done badlyg and while our modesty forbids that we should raise ourselves as a standard, we would suggest that the class that done as well may be justly proud.

Although we have enjoyed but one year with the upper classmen, we feel that our short history is worthy of notice. The class entered upon its High School career with seventeen boys and sixteen girls. Each one was welcomed and duly initiated into high school at the annual Freshmen Reception, held September nineteenth, in the school auditorium. During the year the Freshmen have taken part in various school activities. Some of the boys tried to be football playersg none of them starred, however. Among those who played basketball are Trevalyn Abbott, Ruthanna Brinkman and Clair Flanagan. The annual lnter Class Contest was an event looked forward to by all and especially by contestants. Although we did not win the cup, some splendid numbers were given by the Freshmen and the oration delivered by Gershom Poole won second place. lfve hope that in years to come a large number of our class will be stars in football, basketball, baseball and track. We also hope for a good record in class- work because, after all, that is what counts. -...-.-......-.. .....-................... 4-.-....4... 4-... ...--..........-.....-............... .... --.....-.....-. .r, qlflizenty-One ALLEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL 9 THE STAFF Editor-in-Chief Business Manager Advertising Manager Subscription Manager Literary Editor - Athletic Editor Music Editor Joke Editor - Faculty Manager Faculty Advisor Faculty Ad-visor CLIFTON MYGRANT BURNETTE BURRELL NELLTE BRANDEBERRY HAROLD HARTMAN BESSIE STALLBOHM LESTER ENSIGN GRACE MITCHELI, Lov POWELL L.

People: Do you know that this annual is the first published in the school's history? Do you realize the vast sum of money it has taken to publish this book and to make it a really worth while proposition? Do you realize that the time and effort spent by us to make this Annual a success was enormous? VVell then, people, do not criticise this publication of the Annual, for we did the best we possibly could with the funds and chance we had to put it out. Have you stopped to think what a small portion you have contributed towards the publication of this paper when it cost us approximately four-hundred dollars to publish it? VVith this in mind friends, you will understand and see how necessary it was that the business man contributed to us, his advertisements. He is the one that makes this Annual possible: so since he has helped you, by putting his adds in your paper, it is surely your turn now to help him. So let us all get together now and buy of the man who advertised in the DIXIE. --o-o-- Listen, Juniors, Sophomores and Freshman, if you don't have a diploma from A. T. H.

Yes, these are some few FGHSDHS why A, T. H. S. has been put on the map as having a clear., winning football team. Back in the fall of '21 the boys found in their science teacher an able 00aCh. Mr. VVS-aver came from Lima. his home town, and brought with him the abillfb' to put A. T, H. S. on the map. Our coach is a graduate of Ohio Northern University. and having played high school and college football, he took up coaching as a side line with h.s science work- Coach Vveayer has trained winning teams for 3 number of years and his good experience has been utilized ip V211 BUFGD' H9 Started in '21 with three letter men and has produced some real material. In the opening of the season before the game with Lima Central it was easily observed that a great season was ahead. Enthusiasm was at its highest, Coach VVeaver was to reap the reward of his hard, and Captain Hart was using his influence with regard to training rules and the old time spirit. At the moment Lima faced our boys they realized the situation and it was only after much substi- tution and desperate effort that they were able to hold our boys to a tie. In going over the lineup we come ii.rst to those brilliant ends, the Hartman brothers. Harold and Kenneth have started many a rally by pulling in a nice pass or by a hard tackle. Harold graduates this year and our coach must work hard t0 produce his equal. We are sure Kenneth has another good season in store. Our trusty tackles, Moorehead and Trout, have never failed. With clean, quick methods they attain their ends. Moorehead received a broken arm at McComb which weakened our strong line for sometime. Both players are looking forward t0 their final season next fall and our best wishes for good luck go with them. Captain Hart and Spitler work in harmony with Dove at center and form a strong combination. Spitler and Dove will be on hand next season hut Captain Hart graduates after four seasons of remarkable playing. Gary, H. Trout and C. Trout have helped out on the line this season and they will work in nicely next fall. In the back field we have that swift Gorsuch at quarter with Fisher in reserve. They have played a fine brand of ball this season and Gorsuch has been rewarded with the captaincy for next year. Fisher, who graduates this year, was laid out with a broken collar the last half seasor., With Abbot, Elder and Space to change off at half we have a remarkable combination. Elder always ready to gain with a long end run, while Abbot Ol' Space is waiting for a defensive fight. All three players will be out next fall and we expect great things from them. Ray Trout, that husky fullback, has come up to our expectations. He is always ready to deliver a nice pass or plow for il gain. He plays clean hall and is expected to hold his own next season. Through the efforts of these players Mr. VVeaver has given A. T. H. S. a high standing in the opinion of the surrounding teams and fans. Along' with hard fight, Mr. VVeaver has made his team hold clean sportsman- ship alvove all things, and has received much comment from opponents due to these facts. VVith Captain Hart, the ideal of honesty and good spirit at its head, the Allen township squad has spread the gospel of clean athletics throughout its scheduled territory. N0 matter what team it is that falls before their strength, they mention our team as the ideal of real sportsmanship. -By LESTER ENSIGN. 4. .,.,..-- - ....-..

WVith our teams, the same as honest men in life, we C10 lOl seek victory through a lueky loop hole but by true technique do we play the 353019. Our able coaeh, Mr, Chronir, has developed some real ability in our players, He often relates tales of vim-tory when he was still in the game. Coach Ch1'0l1iC added to his coaching knowledge a six week's course under Professor Hlsen at Ohio State University last summer and from these sources he has trained his teams under college tar-tic-s. From thirty candidates he has selertefl eight mei, tv l'9l!1'PSH'l1t our school in all first 1-lass contests. Captain Hartman, Fisher and Kenneth llartnxan to i-hange at forward make a niee combination. Dove and Elder at eenter manager to get the tipoff, while Trout, Gorsuch and Ensign play the defenslre eild. Our team has been taught the Dr, Meanwell system used in all leading colleges, and it works out nicely. This system develops nive, speedy dribbling and short passes which insure Captain Hartman a ni:-e, quick shot. Although we were unlucky at tournament time with Hartman, star forward, in poor shape, and Dove on the sick list, we put up a clean brand of ball, appreo ated by those who have a knowl- edge of the game. During the tournament game with Arlington Gorsuch and Ensign were added to the sick list with 1-raeked ribs. lt is significant to note that not one opponent has been disabled while playing A. T. boys this season. It speaks well for our players and bears out the main point of lVlr.'Chronio's coaching. We had only one week's practice when we were defeated the first game of the season at Hoytsville. The defeat from North Baltirnore showed lack of practice and not until our vietory over the Alumni did our team get back to the old time ball, VVe easily defeated Mt, Cory in a fast game but the next week were defeated by Rawson who succeeded in laying out our best players. We won from Liberty and Arlington by a nice margin only to meet defeat with North Baltimore after a rough game. Mt. Cory and Liberty again niet defeat at our hands in fast, clean games, but we lost to Arlington both at the tournament and there because .of disabled players. It shows our ability when in shape, by the .hard defeat over Rawson, the touriiament champs. They played hard ball but were helpless under Coach Chronicls shooters. XVe have proved by our defeating Arcadia, on their own floor, that their game was won from us by unfair means rather than from real basketball. The season was officially closed by defeating the Alumni in a hard game 29 to 18. Captain Hartman, Fisher and Ensign leave the squad this year, Hftel' three Yeflrfl of W1Y'f4ifY lllayinir. ard their absenee will be felt next season. As a fitting close of the season the eight letter men met and elected LeRoy TY'0Uf Uiilltilin fill' the FQHSUN of '25 in honor of the ability he has shown in the past three years. We take this opportunity tn extend our best wishes of success to him and his fellow workers for next year's basketball showing. -By LESTER ENSIGN. 4. .-efef...-......... . - E...-.-...- f-.---..-..-..------.--.----.-1... -1.

Coach Chronic deserves unlimited credit for their showing this year because he started the season with only three girls who had letters from last year. Mr. Chronic developed his winners from some twenty candidates all of whom were willing to learn and fight- He has coached many good teams and worked with many players but he observes that some of this ye'ar's talent is the best that he has ever produced. Captain Dove, Huffman and Abbott are all good shots and play nice offensive hall. Thomas, Poe, DeRodes and Reed change off at center of the floor and do some real pass work. Fisher, Locey and Burrell form a strong defensive combination which would be hard to beat. Outside of Burrell and DeRodes, who graduate this year, the remainder of the team are new at the game and will represent A. T. H. S- another season at least. The girls showed remarkable ability in defeating Hoytville and North Baltimore but lost a hard game to the local Alumni. They easily defeated Mt. Cory but didn't pull together and fell to defeat before both Rawson and Liberty- Arlingt0H was easily defeated and North Baltimore was outclassed in a 2-2 game. Liberty again defeated the girls on the home floor, but in the tournament, after defeating Arcadia, our girls easily won from their old rivals and put V. B. to the front. Arlington was next defeated but Rawson staged a come-'back 12-3. Their first game with Arcadia was a victory while the last ended a tie, To finish the season our girls defeated Findlay's Firsts in one of the hardest games of the year. VVe must not omit to here make note of the pleasures we enjoyed during the workouts and the good times we had on the truck going and coming from games. To close their victorious season the girls elected Miss Fern Thomas as their iiext year's leader. VVe are sure they will accomplish great things under her leader- ship. and we hppe them the very best of success. -By LESTER ENSIGN. 4- --A-e--11 f e -e -ee A - A f ee - -A e- -if Thirty One 1 ALLEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL- Girls and Boys Track Team TRACK MEET HE season of '23 was the tirst successful track season in the history of our school.

At the last county meet, considering total points made by the whole school, we were the champsg however, our high school was second only to Rawsfrn. The boys team competed in the State Sectional Meet at Ada. and made a nice showing. This season real enthusiasm is shown and both teams are working hard for the championship.

OUSEKEEPING is the biggest woman-employing industry in the world. It is the oldest industry in creation and yet no other occupation is annually called upon to employ so much unskilled labor. In 1917 our government, realizing that the future of America depends upon the conditions found in our homes, passed a law providing for the teaching of Home- making as a profession to our High School girls. Smith-Hughes Home Economics was established in Allen Township High School in the fall of 1922. There are between forty and fifty of these schools in the State of Ohio. Home Economics is, in a broad sense, the science of household management. It includes the study of the planning and preparation of meals, sewing, dietetics, house planning, house decoration, care of the sick, sanitation, and the general care of the home from a sanitary and economic standpoint. Girls who are entering the field of home-making with its many and varied duties will be glad that they have been able to take such a. course in High School. 4. , e 1 - .,,, , W.-...W , - if 7 W 4.
