Page one The Spirit Annual ■ !i r.... n . The Brunswick ALL PHONOGRAPHS IN ONE A Phonograph Sensation Our announcement of the new Brunswick Method of Reproduction brings city-wide interest It appears that every music lover has been waiting for such an instrument as. the new Bruns-wick—-America’s latest musical triumph, made by the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. People say that our claims for it arc too modest. The Brunswick Method of Reproduction is so much better, so far superior that praise is indeed fulsome. You, too, must hear this remarkable new instrument. You can't appreciate the great advance it represents until you hear it. You'll be delighted with The Ultona, which plays every record, and with the Brunswick Amplifier. These two great inventions make the Brunswick the most perfect Khonograph ever conceived. As you’ll agree. You’ve never before card such natural tones. All previous conceptions of good tone will be changed. Come in today. Join the most critical music-lovers in town. Hear this super-phonograph. QUADE STUDIO 417 MAIN STREET AMES, IOWA iiiti!iiiiiii.i!iiiiiiiiiiiuiii;i(iiiiii!f, IIW1- HWWISBMMWMMiiiillfli i lilrtlllii 1'Hlll liWIlI.i .illlHllliilifilllLilfr.

Cartoonist for "Spirit.”Page twenty-orte The Spirit Annual Class Htslorij It was in the fall of ’13 when the old school again swung open her doors for eigbtv-nine Freshmen to enter and begin their four long years of life in her halls. The first few weeks we inwardly shivered when anyone yelled “Prep!” and outwardly trembled at the sight of green dandelions. After our class finally adjusted themselves, we became noted as llie peppiest class ever in school. (Please pardon our self-praise.) We organized before any of the other classes and Bcatic Olson made a sure enough peppy president. I . Our first class party, we all remember, and we somehow had an awfully good time without quite knowing why, after all the boys in some way got mixed with all the girls on the opposite side of the room. But there's one thing about that party some of us never could understand and this is, why do Edith Wallis and Barclay Noble blush when third floor is mentioned t Our Junior Hallowe’en party surely had all other class functions beaten, when Mr. Steffey, for once, allowed us to laugh at his expense when he came in doing the Agricultural two step. Our bob-party that year would have been a wonderfully good party, if there had been any snow on the ground. We took such pains to find chaperones and we finally Ihot Mr. and Mrs. Bob Thompson would fill the bill. At the school-house, we all waited and waited. They didn't come, so we finally drove off without them to an oyster stew at Noble's. All the time the said Thompson's were waiting at home for us to come after them. That year we started out very strong in athletics. The football boys were full of enthusiasm, and we had a fine team, thanks to our coach. Our boys on, the team were Soper, Anderson, and Dvoracck and they all won their monograms. In the spring our basketball team held Hammond, McCarty, Dunlap, Anderson, Sauvain, Dvoracck, with Innes, Dunlap, McCarty, Sauvain, I lines and Hammond winning their monograms. The Juuior year of athletics never went very much farther than a good class team owing to our suspension from the association. At commencement time the Juniors gave their annual reception to the Seniors. Whenever I think of the reception 1 somehow seem to hear Mr. Steffy telling his one favorite story about the Swede boy and girl but, “I tank I said too much already. ” Leroy Aplarnl was our president that year. This year the Senior class has not been very active in social events, but we have our old enthusiasm just the same. We did have a tally pull, however, and succeeded in so stringing taffy on all the hall floors that Mr. Steffy had a hard time writing tardy slips next morning. Another stunt which will be forever remembered occurcd on May 22nd. That day the Seniors grasped their last chance to return to the manners andPage tv.’cnty-w.'O The Spirit Annual , Wn tvlGa t0 be kills once more but some of us presented a ;S:f SUL number of curly homh which sprung into being, we VP’’%|V Lit'ernn' °1"' °f WOlk j th° Senior veer ...din order to leave a better record for those who are to fill our idares, we the Senior Class, eheerfully have assumed (he respons.h.lity of carry-it,,, one-fourth of the demerits that the right honorable judges have deemed it ne cssary to bestow.

The Wizard is seated i.i the door of the 'cave deeply engrossed in a large book Beatrice has keen informed that he can foretell the future and comes to seek hts a.d the class prophecy. . B. Arc you the Wizard of the Future! (repeats three limes). W. (Looks up with dazed expression) Eh, what’s that! Am 1 the Wizard of the Future! Yes, child, that’s what the people of the earth call me. B. Oh, Seer or Visions, won’t you help me! I’ve heard that you have a Book of the Future and can foretell the destiny of people. Barclay says 1 have to, just have to, get. a prophecy for the Class of 1918. I tried to get Inspiration lo help me, but she is so long in coming and now my time is up and .1 have nothing. Barclay will simply chew my ears oil' if I don 't get it by midnight, tonight. So won’t you help me? W. I am forbidden to disclose the future, ftalways causes trouble. . . . But—wluit would you he willing to give if I should tell you the secret? B. (Opens pocketbook and offers money—wizard shakes head. Then offers her ring and later her beads—still no response.) That’s all I have here but maybe I could get more. How much do you want? IV. No, it isn’t that kind of pay I must have. I can tell you the future, only under one condition, and that is that you must promise that no one of the members of the class shall, under any circumstances, lose his sweet disposition. B. Oh, I promise, i promise! They never get mad or peeved and they arc all so anxious to know what they will bo doing in ten years. . Very well, but remember—if any one fails to keep this promise, he must be branded a Sorehead, because Fate is no respcclor of persons. B. Oh, 1 am sure they will promise. What will you disclose first? W . ( kj)cns buj book and seems to fait into a trance).

Marguerite Kirk ha m, disappointed in finding that her Well is an empty one, joins the Yankce-Robison Circus as bareback rider, being trained by ring-master, Donald Finch. Nevin limes is in a state of mental doubt. He doesn't know which line of work lie should take up—that of a clown or an undertaker. B. Where’s lua Reins? W. Ina marries “Stub” Watkins in 1923. Her wedding is one of the most extraordinary events on the social calendar of Ames. The bride is gowned in a creation designed by Helen McDowell, modiste employed by Seal's, Roebuck Co. Mrs. Vera Barker Rumpscy is matron of honor. I see Imogenc Dean,, Elsie Elliot, Jessie Bourland, Neva Scott and Elizabeth Bateman as bridesmaids. Anna Lindauer carries the ring in a buttercup. While the bridal procession marches to the alter, Doris Wherry plays, “There Shall Be Showers of Blessing.” After the ceremony, at which the Rev. LeRoy Apiaiid officiates, Earl Johnson sings with great feeling ami pathos, “ ”f is Better to Have Loved and Lost 'Phan Never to Have Loved at All”. B. (Meditatively) Well isn’t it funny how things turn out? Tell me about Frank Coulter. W. Frank is getting famously rich. Iiis latest book, “The Care and Feeding of Infants,” is enjoying wonderful popularity. Gladys Slingerlaiul and Lois Miller arc looking after the diet and happinesss of the fowls at the I. S. C. Poultry Farm. Myrtle Hall, the famous prima dona, is on a concert tour with Mr. Pollard. Frances Holm is substituting for -Miss Fickle who is on a leave of absence. Lena Nelson is occupying a new position in A. II. S.—that of teaching the faculty to be sweet-tempered and obliging. B. What becomes of the actors in our class play? Something romantic, must come of that. W. Bill Winters and Willis Belknap are out of work and at present aro tramping their way thru the country and they occasionally pull off’ vaudeville stunts in small towns. W. Ah, Destiny scatters human beings far and wide. The Present counts for little. Edith charms Lester out of his usual calm repose and the result is a honeymoon to the Bermuda Islands, but Lester wonders if he didn’t make a mistake in not taking the former Tripp. Of course executive ability is expected of Barclay Noble and it is being demonstrated by his rapid rise to dictatorship in the Skyscraper Chimneysweep Co. Lillie Roberson is teaching the Chinese to use the typewriter. The Theory of Evolution as expounded in English Class during the last semester of the Senior year, made such an impression on Lyman Osam’s sensitive nature, that he is spending years of unceasing effort in Africa in an attempt to trace his ancestry. Lucille’s part in the play inspired her to try the stage and she is rolling the curtain at the Princess. Gilbertc Luke is in charge of an expedition in search of her lost temper. Naomi Fitch, in partner-Page twenty-six The Spirit Annual ship with Myrtle Jorgensen, is conducting a dance studio for the poor working girls in Chicago. , . 0 B.

If this eight hundred and fifty dollars brought cheer to any homesick or wounded soldier, surely the boys have been repaid many times for the little things they went without. Knitting for the Red Cross flourished during the winter months, and it would be interesting to know the amount of work turned in from the high school. 'Phe teachers especially led in this work, some of them getting the habit so thoroughly that their conscience hurt if they slopped knitting except for classes. A few boys joined in this work besides the majority of the girls. These knitted articles must surely mean a great deal to the soldiers who receive them aside from their physical warmth. The girls too, have made their contributions to war work. The V. W. C. A. conducted a campaign and raised about fifty dollars by individual subscriptions. Work was not furnished for the girls as it was for the boys, ami to many of them it meant little economies here and there. One of the most pleasant patriotic events of the year was the joint Y. W. and Y. M. Carnival. This was an all High School stunt which netted about a hundred and eighty dollars. On the night of the Carnival, the H. S. Building was turned up-side down while the kids performed for the benefit of their parents and friends. This is another thing which Mr. Stellcy is largely responsible for. The money from this Carnival went into Y. W. and Y. M. War Work. The Seniors voted linamiously to give the proceeds of the Senior Class Play to the Red Cross as a contribution in the recent campaign. This follows flic precedent of last year and wc are prom! of this custom but hope it will not need to last very long. T II R I P T is the way it looked around the High School during the. whole last term. It was on the hoards, in tho Spirit in write-ups and advertisements, and prominent in the Halls. The various classes had a friendly rivalry in the investing of money.. Even the various Assembly rooms and rows tried to beat each other. The total amount is small, but there is lots of hope for the campaign is still young, and will end only when the war ends. Liberty Bond buttons were also prominent at appropriate times, but a race in the investing of such huge sums was just a little beyond the hopes of even the thriftiest. The work of the Boy Scouts along patriotic lines is another thing that wc can well be proud of. They have proved themselves Prepared5' on more than one occasion. In the last few weeks of school, it. began to look as if wc didn’t have any boys in the school out of short pants. Forty-seven of our boys turned farmers to help Uncle Sam and our Allies in the food crisis. These boys arc fighting the. Kaiser without any guns, but their work is surely going to count.Page forty lillllINHMMMIHNII The Spirit Annual popularity (Contest Beatrice Olson Lucille Lang Dorothy McCarroll Oltly ““B l,aur f'-iruhs is to Itr 01IC — tiiiercoii.The Spirit Annual Page forgone 1 • MHWM»IMiIIHWIIIm HI iBvntvice (SMfinit “Bcatic” belongs to Ames High heart and soul.

II, S. students can look back over the past year and he proud that they were enrolled in a high school that ranks as high in athletics as Ames. Because of our inability to participate in inter-scholastic athletics, as soon as school opened in September, Coach Thompson arranged a schedule for inter-class games. The main sports in which the four classes competed were tennis, football and basketball. TENNIS The tennis series was so arranged that each class played out an elimination tournament and the winners in each class were to play for the high school championship, but for some unknown reason the scries was never completed. Probably it was because a majority of the boys were more interested in football. The only class which finished its schedule was the Senior, Victor Beach being the winner. The Junior and Freshman classes were slower in starting and only a few games had been played when the high school boys were stricken with the football fever. The Spring tournament had not been played when the Spirit, went to press. FOOTBALL When school commenced all of the "A” men had enlisted or entered other schools so Mr. Thompson thought it would In profitable for the boys to spend some time learning the game and for this reason he arranged a series of class games. The boys practiced three times a week, learning how to punt, catch, throw, fall on the ball, tackle and run signals. The Juniors and Freshmen again showed their slowness to get into the game ns they had in tennis. Many nights of precious practice had passed before these two classes could “round up” enough players to organize teams. All the players knew the real battle would be between the Sophomores and the Seniors, the Sophomores being picked as slight favorities. The finishing touches were given to the teams and then the coin was flipped. What was the cause of the silence? Horrors! The Seniors had to play the Sophs the first game while (he Freshmen played the Juniors. SENIORS 0—SOPHOMORES 13 The score tolls the talc. The northwest wind numbed the fingers of the players so that many fumbles were made. In the first quarter the ball flew back and forth, mostly forth though, as most of the Seniors were inexperiencedPage forty-six The Spirit Annual Cilass (Eljanipimts in jfnotball c , - Full Bad- Donald w " Ma : ,oy Bennett, Quarter; Elis Second Row—Sam Carter.

Despite the Senior efforts, Eliott got. away for a touch down near the end of the first quarter. When the second quarter started, the Sophs, were within twenty yards ot the Senior goal. After many line plunges Scovel “went over” for the final touchdown. In the last half the Seniors played the Sophs, on equal terms and succeeded in showing them what the upper classmen were made of. JUNIORS 10—PREPS. 3 The “little, but oh my” team commenced the game as if they were going to do something desperate to the Juniors. Griffith s line plunging, with the aid or 0 Brien, Thompson and Naughton forced the Juniors to he contented with the short end of a 3 to 0 score at the end of the first half. The Juniors pepped up in the last two quarters and with Cupps and Ross smashing the line, succeeded in making three touchdowns. SOPHOMORES f 3—PREPS. 0 There has probably been ‘‘nufl"’ said although it might be added that Eliott, Bennett, and Scovel were thinking seriously of entering the spring track meet alter they had made such a goo 1 showing for the Sophs. SENIORS 13- -JUNIORS 0 The Seniors trimmed the Juniors mid a flurry of snow by two touchdowns, one made by Mussou, who carried the ball thirty yards after intercepting a pass and the other on straight football. The Juniors were forced to resort to the passing game, completing several in spite of numb fingers. SOPHOMORES 37-JUNIORS 0 'rite Sophs, found a little tougher proposition when they met the Juniors altlio the Sophs, considered it another track meet as with the Preps. Grey, Eliott, Scovel, and Bennett played their usual game, while Meyers, Jarvis, Hess, and Potter starred for the Juniors. SENIORS 12-PREPS. 0 This was one of the hardest fought games of the season. The Preps fought as if it meant either life or death to them. The first half ended in favor of the Seniors 6-0. Jn the third quarter Winters repeated his former trick and smashed across the line for the final touchdown. SOPHOMORES 20—ALE STARS 2 This was probably the most interesting and exciting game of the season. The question to be settled was whether the Sophs were school champions. The All Star team consisted of eleven of the best players picked from the Preps, Juniors, and Seniors. The All Stars were completely outclassed except in forward passing.

After several nights of practice a squad of twenty-five fellows was chosen to try our for the high school team. Innes and Sauvain of last year’s team were two promising players. Also Scovcl ami Elliot of the Soph, team showed excellent form. Coach Thompson arranged to complete most of the class games ) January 1. The class games were played in two series. As in football the real fight was between the Sophomores and Seniors. The Seniors won the first series, while the Sophs, won the second and the “rubber” game, thus becoming class champions in l sketl el! also. The secret of the Sophs’, success lies in the number of athletes from the other classes in the service. The scores in the first scries were: Snphs. 35—Juniors IT; Seniors 40—Preps. 3; Juniors 22—Preps 9; Sophs 20 Preps 5; Seniors 21—Sops. 16; Seniors 35— Juniors 11.

Although Ames had a good team, they also had sonic good teams to play against. Most of Ames' players were inexperienced men. Their record, however, is very good and next year Ames High will have a team worthy of winning the state title. AM ICS 7—BOONE 11 The first inter-high school game was with Boone. Both teams commenced the game fighting like demons. The score at the end of the first half was 1 to 0, in favor of Ames, neither side having been able to make a field basket. Boone came back strong in the second half of the game and took home the bacon. Scovel, played a great game at guard and was responsible for the low score, limes and Elliot also played good games.

Bennett and limes were ttlie only A. H. S. players ; get a field goal, each netting one apiece. However, Eliott’s and Sauvain's floor work kept the hall out of danger many times.

Ames by superior learn work and basket shooting, added another victor.' its credit by winning from the undefeated Toledo quintet. Eliott and Sauvain played ail excellent game caging ten of the twenty goals. Westfall, Toledo s stai player, was held to one basket by the consistent guarding of Scovel. 'Raymond Byrnes led the A. 11. S. rooters in some peppy yells and filled his position in collent style considering that it was his first time.

AMES 11—MISSOURI VAMjEY 17 Ames was eliminated by Missouri allc in tlio first game ol tlie district tournament which was held in the College Gym. This was the poorest game Ames played during the entire season. The players, with the exception of one or two, must have been out late the night before, because they didn’t seem to realize or wake up to the fact that they were being beaten. The Missouri fellows ::ccmed afraid to tackle Scovel at close range as most of their scores were made by long shots. This was the last game in which Lester Sauvaiu and Nevin limes could help defend the honors of A. II. S. These two men will be greatly missed when the next basketball season arrives.

The talks of Mayscr, Clyde Williams, Rodgers, Ned Mcmain, Charles Hclsev and some of the others, touched the boys who heard them more (ha., thev would care to admit. After the talks, there came bible study. Not the dried-up kind, but real, live, high school affairs, bible study. Then the boys who liked to sing gathered around Mr. Pollard at the piano, and sung till Jim had to drive them out by turning out the lights. The “Y” stood back of two big tilings that alone make the past year successful. It acted as the agent for the collection of “ Y” Pledges, keeping the boys awake to what they had promised. The Carnival was also given jointly with the V. . and the fun and money this Carnival coined arc certainly worth remembering. Ames sent delegates to two conventions. One at Boone, a district “Hi Y” and Sunday School Convention, where sixteen hoys had the time of their lives and advertised Ames to their hearts content; and the Life Work Conference at Dps Moines. Three of the senior boys went to this Life Work Conference and Ihc drcplli of its effects would be hard to measure. The officers for the past year were, Eugene Watkins, President, and Walton viomir, Vice-President, elected to fill the vacancies left by Donald Soper and nuiivd Crabbs.

A Christmas party was given to children who were not accustomed to visitations from Santa Claus. There was a Christmas tree, elaborately decorated with pop-corn, candy and tops. After the tree the girls gathered the children together and told them stories. A China-Meeting was held in April, attended by all the high school girls. .Miss Daisy Brown, a missionary from Foochow, China, spoke to them, tolling of her experiences in ( liina and what the Y. W.

In order to do this we must have the activities in our high school balanced. W'c want to give every one an opportunity to become well developed by opening as many interests as possible to him and to olVer every one a chance to develop the talent that he has. So we intermingle studies, athletics, public speaking, debates, and music. Another reason For our having an orchestra in our high school is to provide a phase of work For those that arc not athletic or are not gifted with talent in the line oF public speaking. In the third place, an orchestra helps to bring bettoV music before our school. We can sec what the “Living Picture Festival" has done For us in Art. We arc now belter able to appreciate and understand pictures and to know what good pictures arc. Familiarity with good music creates a standard and trains the judgment. The orchestra is becoming a familiar and popular Feature of our assemblies, and has appeared at other times such as the Senior Class Play, Living Picture Festival and in the graduation exercises.Page sixqKwo IMHMHMMHHMM The Spirit Annual Olht debating learn Alford Carlion Barclay Noble debating Leslie Gray The best thing about this year’s debating is the prospects for a winning team next year.

II To Armirilly Simpkins Corde There once was an old spccdstress named Corde, Who found great pleasure in coaxing a Ford; But the blame thing went wild, When the weather got mild: And now she’s helping the Lord. III To I hcophilius Jones—Musician There once was a geezer called Jones, Who continually ratted on bones, I made a mistake M hen 1 called him a fake, lint I still think him askew on Ins tones.

And as wc came out., we .jumped into the car, Wc were trying already to. act like the star. We sped up the street about “30 miles per,” When all of a sudden wc happened to miss her. Wc looked to ihe left and we looked to the right, And that which we saw, surely gave us a fright. Some one gave a scream and some one gave a cry, But the girl on the pavement just opened one eye. She was covered with dust from her feet. 1o her head And the marvelous thing was that she wasn't dead . We picked up the remains as best we could, And lifted it up right over the hood. Her knees were both skinned and her hose were all torn, She surely presented a picture forlorn. “But how did you happen to fall front the car, Did you not. fear it your beauty would mar?” “1 was trying to see could I jump from the seat, And that's all I remember till 1 sprawled on the street. “Never, no never will I ever again, As a woman try to walk in the steps of the men. I''or as Doug lias excelled all the others by far So I fear I'll ne’er rival that grand movie star.” WOULD YOU SUSPECT? That Miss Niles once led a church choir— That Miss Pickel was locked out of the ’ Dorm” one night for not getting in by 10 o'clock— That Miss Williams was once in a vaudeville show— That Miss Gates' finance is an Army Clmplin— That Miss Coffey isn't capable of teaching ballet dancing— That Margaret Sloxs ever talks about her teachers— That Lucilles Ford isn’t to get her everywhere.

Why ail this—because of little wearisome trifles, “labored nothings?” Why on the lovliest days of spring, when birds are trying to out-sing each other, and flowers to out-bloom each other and breezes to out-blow each other,—why must human beings try to out-do each other? By the school commandments we arc strictly forbidden to enter the back door of the study hall. We must take one hundred steps (if they be like Marjorie Nichols’) or twenty-five strides (if like Gerard Ray ness’) to the front door and then the same number out the back door plus the in-umcrablc ones to our classes. If Miss Nickel, with the tail of her eye, docs not catch a fleeting glimpse of us as we sneak in the back door, we are able to fulfill the present expectations of Conservation of shoe leather, disposition, (for all concerned), floors and time either for powdering, leaning over the radiators or taking a last (or more likely first) glance at the day s lesson. Do we not also have to earrv out the orders of ascending the south stairs and decendmg the north ones, also keeping to the right of the corridors? And is it not the custom, my dear classmates, to meet the Faculty en-route in these wanderings? Then, too, in these days of conservation why should we dispose of a perfectly good wad of gum before its enjoyment is fully completed. If the powers that be, would only realize the increase in mental ability caused by the juicy flavor, they would not only insist that we continue with the use of it, but they would also be patronizing that which they have forbidden us to enjoy. It is not often that most of us have the chance of relaxing in such an extraordinary, magnificent yet homelike little rest room, ft is such a temptation when one has nothing to study and especially when one is so stupendously brilliant that he docs not have to study, to spend several periods daily conversing with others of his kind. Do we not have examples of Addison, Steele, Ben Johnson and others in the Colfce houses of England who became extremely popular and influential through conversation? Nobody but persons having a mature mind shall take this to heart because, we, (the Seniors), who have experienced four years of “Labored Nothings”—only can sec the significance of it.

The greater purpose of War Savings Stamps is to give every man, woman and child a personal part in financing the war for freedom and to teach the most beneficial habit in life—the habit of Thrift, so that when this war is over the people will have saved out of the high wages of these days, some part of their incomes, as a provision for the future.
