The Personality of Steele
J. H. PAiN'rEn
ttllas your school a personality ?" This is one of the questions asked
of each principal by the committee of teachers who made the recent survey
of our schools.
The character of a school, like the character of an individual, is a
matter of development, growth, and environment. The elements which
unite to produce this individuality are subtle and complex. They embody
the best traditions of her best teachers and students. The worthy tradi-
tions are m-ore enduring because our teachers and the most of our students
are honestly striving to reachihigher mental and moral heights, and
instinctively assimilate the good and eliminate the bad.
The personality of Steele has thus, through many years, been built
up toward the highest ideals by the devoted care of her teachers and
pupils. Their personality has been built into the Steele spirit just as
the carefully chiseled stones have been built into the beautiful walls of
the Steele building. The lives and examples of many teachers who have
worked with us and gone on to greater opportunities, or who have gone
to claim their final reward, are still a living, potent infiuence in'our
school. The teachers who are now with us will continue to render service
long after they have ceased to serve in person. Our students, too, both
present and past, have merged their personality into this great composite
character of Steele.
NVhast then is the character of this composite Steele?
The ready response of her sons to the call of their country, the self-
sacrificing ervice of her daughters, the part she has taken in human.i-
tarian movements, prove her civic interest and patriotic loyalty. The
students' participation in the management of study halls, class rooms,
plays, assemblies and other school activities shows a democratic spirit.
The free, yet orderly, passing of classes, mingling in the lunch room and
corridors, and the quiet attention during assemblies, indicate a large
measure of self-control. The cordial relations existing between students
and teachers show a mutual faith and a spirit of cooperation and fair
play. The lives of our former students, their success in college and in
business, the places of honor and responsibility which they hold i11 this
community, indicate a foundation of eiiicient education, of culture, and
Such is the Steele personality: an. amalgamation of loyalty,
democracy, self-control, culture, and character, a willingness to toil, to
suffer, and to efface oneself for the greater glory of the alma mater.

Senior Class History
N the autumn of 1918, we entered Steele quite new to the place but
full of vigor and enthusiasm. lVhat ardor and spirit characterized
us from the start! At Hrst we were rather awed by the smilinigly
superior Seniors and Juniors, but we soon learned the rules and regu-
lations of the school and felt quite as much at home as the upperclass-
me11. As Sophomores we took more interest in the school activities
than is usually the case with people of that rank. Our class was well
represented on t.l1e boys' athletic teams, while our Sophomore girls kept
the Senior and Junior teams busy. Our work in the class rooms was
very satisfactory. VVe came into the school determined to win out in
scholarship and we did. NVe are proud of our part in Steele's twenty-fifth
anniversary celebration. XVe contributed a pageant, Q'ylllIl3,Slll1ll and
exhibition work, a play, regular class work, and many written folios for
As Juniors, we lost ll0t one bit of our splendid class spirit. VVe
organized rather late in the year, choosing a very competent staff of
officers. Robert Zehring was our Junior president. We were the first
class in Steele to give the Sophomores a "lVelcoming 1'a.rty." Our
f'Junior Carnival" was a huge success. What fun we had .therel I The
crowning event of the year was our Farewell to the Seniors. This was
held at Memorial Hall and everyone agreed it was ttjust perfectfi But,
like all ambitious Juniors, we desired to reach the highest pinnacle in a
high school career. Oh, to be a Senior!
The class of 1921 has now almost completed the last lap. Under
the leadership of Robert McC'onnaugl1ey, our Senior president, and his
time staff of oflicers, we feel that we have accomplished much and that we
may be justly proud of our entire career at Steele, but chiefly are we
proud of our Senior year. Everyone is convinced that our play was the
finest Senior play ever presented. Through our three years at Steele our
members have been called to various positions of responsibility. A't.hletic
teams, debate teams, staff work, and all other school activities demanded
our assistance and never have we shirked responsibility. NVe have tried
to give our best to Steele. XVe love her dearly, and wher'er we are we shall
look back to these few years of work for her as the happiest years ill our
life. And as we advance into other paths of life, it is our fervent hope
that we may live up to her high ideals in everything we do.
May Steele flourish and prosper in the future as she has in the past,
is the dearest wish of the class of 1921.

The Senior Play
T was on.ly after some deliberation that the Senior Class decided to
produce "The Irresistible Marmaduke," a three-act comedy of English
Society life. This play written by Ernest Denny, had been produced
but one other time i11 America, and had never been attempted except by
professionals. It was rather a unique undertaking for high school pupils.
The entliusiasm of the audience pronounced the production a decided
Robert Knee was indeed irresistible as the "Irresistible Marmadukef'
His character portrayal was equal to that of a professional. Great
versatility was displayed by the ease with which he changed from tl1e
fine young man, who believed himself a lord, into the real Marmaduke
-a hopeless profligate.
Pauline Uurtner, as the little lrish girl, was a very charming leading
lady. Iler interpretation of the part was appealingly natural.
The role of Lady Althea, Marmaduke's aristocratic mother, was no
easy one. It was very ably taken, however, by Dorothy Chamberlain.
The dignified precision of her speech Zlllltl manner was all that could be
desired. The wonder was that she could be so calm with such a person
as Mortimer Gregory for a. husband. Basil Leever, as Mortimer Gregory,
was the very opposite of his wife, Lady'Althea. He was either shouting
demands as he rushed about or glaring on the world as he angrily chewed
Gwendolyn lVeeks as Miss Wylie, Mortimer's secretary, was very
wily in managing the tflrresistible Marmadukef'
Lady Susan, Lady Althea's sister, was cleverly personiiied by Helen
lt would have been impossible to recognize in the prying housemaid,
Dawson, any resemblance to Ruth McPherson. The exact way she had
of saying, "Yes, milady" or "No, milady," was a real dramatic achieve-
Ray NVelsh looked and acted the part of the genial llr. 0'Keefe. His
delightful accent played no small part in the success of his represenitation.
Russel Brundige, the clumsy tradesman, introduced some clever
Other characters important in unraveling the plot. were James, the
l'll2lllll:Plll', played by Kenneth llenchg Christopher Deacon., a solicitor,
played by Everett Laylmllnlg and Shelby Burgher as lValter, Marmaduke's
The success of the play was due to the untiring efforts of the very
able director, Miss Grace Stivers, allll the l'3,l'I19Sf work of this splendid
cast. The play has added another real achievement to the list of things
accomplished by the class of '21,

The Class of 1921 in 1940
BOIIGIIT a lovely 1'ed 21.1111 black pencil today 21.1111 the queerest tlllllg'
ha.ppencd! As I was boarding a street. car in front of the shop, the
proprietor called out, "XVait, I sold you the wrong pencil, that 0110
is naot for sale!" As I hesitated, he eried out impatiently, "Bring it
back, aml you can have two-11o, three others." But the car had started
before he finished his speech, so I ealled out that I would l'Pflll'll it
tomorrow. There was no 119911 of exciting myself over a pencil.
This evening, as I held the pencil loosely in my hand, I laughingly
said, "Wherein, 0 Pencil, lies your remarkable value?" To my amaze-
ment, the lN'llt'll, moving slowly over a sheet of paper XVllll'll lay before
me. wrote: t'TIle power of prophecy." I knew then why tl1e shopkeeper
was loath to pa1't with it. 'Tan you prophesy everything?" I asked.
The answer was "Yes," "Then disclose to me the future of my fl'l0lltlS
a11d class-mates, in the year l940." The pencil, gliding gracefully over
the page, wrote the following:
"The city of llayton, Ohio, has just enjoyed a mammoth fair, carnival
and exhibition combined. The affair was planned under the able leader-
ship of Mayor Switzer 31141 the Uflll-'I' eommissioners, lluth Prior, Eliza-
beth Folger, Justin Fompton and John Kraniier. All patriotic citizens
were asked to otfer their services. Robert Mcl'onnaughey, county coroner,
and former president of the class of '21 of Steele High School, called o11
l'omImissioner Fompton, the former secretary. They decided that the
class of '21 llllgfllfr have a I'0llIll0Il, and boost Dayton at tl1e same time.
After consultation with all tl1e available members of the class, their
plan was adopted. Due to the part the graduates of '21 played, the
carnival was a great success.
"This way, ladies and genitlemen, to hear the world renowned opera
singer, Paulo liungero, who will IIINY 0llt9l'f2l.lI1 us. Ile will be followed
by the bvothers I'pson and the brothers l'v'llI1kll0llSPl', the most popular
quartette in all vaudeville," thus announced the guide, as the Hexhibition-
carnival" opened. "I beg your pardon," said a large, stout lady to the
guide, "but is your name McGinnis?" t'No, madame, Mr. t'harles Smith,
at your service." The lady, satisfied, returne-d to her husband, Mr. Fred
Reel, a well lill0WlI l1a.rd-waredeialewr, and masterfully pushed him through
the crowd to see the dramatic and musical perforinanee.
Page F orty-E ight
The program was continuous, with no stops for breath. After the
quartette, Miss Gwendolyn lVeeks, a professional entertainer, delighted
the audience by rendering "Twinkle, twinkle, litt-le star" set to music
written by the well known composer, Elizabeth Stuart. Edith Sauer
and Ericsson Poling,.professiolial acrobatts, then gave a short art. Miss
Elsie Voris, a popular imitator, "llu'ought down the house" by her imita-
tion of Robert Knee as t'Ha.mlet." Mr. Knee and his leading lady, Miss
Pauline Uurtner, were unable to attend as they were touring England in
Shakespearean plays. Music lovers were delighted to hear Miss
Elizabeth McConnaughey, t.he greatest pianist since Paderewski, Thelma
Johnson, famous cellist, tllltl Letha lVilkinson and Velma Holloway,
both of whom are meinbers of the Metropolitan Opera House Co. The
concluding number was a masque entitled "The Year," given by the
'tHermine Schwartz School of Classic Dancing." Irene Urban, Dorothy
lioelnn, If"lorence Riley, and Margarct llalteman as tl1e "Four Seasons"
won great. conunendation.
The famous personiages i11 the audience received as much attention
as the "show," Herman Olft, Secretary of the Treasury, was there,
favoring everyone with his broad smile. Ile was accompanied by his
secretary, Ralph Shoemake, who kept him posted on the latest news.
It was rumored that Mr. Shoemake received great training in newspaper
reading in high school. George Harte, ambassador to Spain., and Charles
Hoey, U. S. Consul at Bagdad, were there also. This brilliant political
assemblage wa.s further brightened by t'urtis Shaw, ex-dog-catcher of
Although the city manager, Berkdoll, tried to prevent local politi-
cians from disturbing or exciting the crowds, Violet Evans tllltl Catherine
Suber, rival candidates for the otlice of Senatrix from Ohio, insisted on
distributing campaign literature and making stmnp speeches. Miss
Suber, backed by Mary Musselman, a very influen-tial political leader, won
favor at first but Miss Evans surpassed her in 11u1uber of followers later.
The cause of Miss Evans' success was a. course in speaking, all known
varieties, given by Miss Nathalie Larson and Miss Elizabeth Coomler.
The Misses Larson a.11d tloomler were experts in their line, speaking with
2111 ease and tinish that comes only after much experience.
There were many invdustrial exhibitions. The Plumbers, Painters,
Paperhangers and Plasterers had a large and interesting exhibit. There
was a model house, constructed by the well known contractor, Hugh Well-
meir, painted by Edward Tobias, papered by Kenneth liench, plastered by
John Shank and piped by Fred Smith. These gentlemen were all promi-
nent in their lines of business.

The ladies were enthusiastic in their praise of the beautiful clothing
displayed by the various tailors and dressmakers. The lovely old -rose
crepe paper evenling gown, designed by Swisher and Swope, was the
favorite creation. The second favorite was a clever little afternoon frock
of tea-green taffeta, presented by the Chamberlain, Gibson, and Hadeler
Vo. The skating costumes of Stoecklein and Weireter were also voted
as "just too sweet for words." The ladies could not understand why
their husbands were so interested in the wireless outfit displays of Snyder,
Swank and Snyder, or the fan dynamometers of the lVelsh Electrical Co.
The inventors' union, leaders of which were John Blocher, Robert
lfoose, Keith Custis and David Prugh held ai ma.ss meeting there. All
agreed that their first inventions were excuses to stay up late and study
their high school lessons. Also, a model 'flVeekly meeting of the Tuesday
Ladies' Club" was held. Short talks were delivered by Miss Jane McCann
and Miss Elizabeth Folger, professors of Biology at Denison. Robert
Zehring, Professor of Zoology at Harvard also gave an interesting talk
on the evolution of the dodo. Dr. George Owings, Insomnia specialist,
Miss Farrell lVoods, a trained nurse, and Dr. McLean, a. well known
dentist, gave short talks on public healths After thanking the per-
formers for their kindness, the president of the Club, Miss Alma Linx-
weiler, asked the members to tell the audience of the value of their Club
work. Those who spoke were, Grace Leonard, Dorothy Mark, Pauline
Bauer, Pauline Dillsworth and Mrs. Vladimife Ejokfsowsky tformerlv
Every evening a dance was held under the supervision of the dancing
masters, James Herman and Basil Leever. These gentlemen preferred
the waltz to all dances and deplored the tendency of the young folks to
skip or hop about the room. They were very strict. The music was
provided by Burgher's Band, directed by Shelby himself. The members
of the band were Richard Mote, Harry Sefton, Abraham Rosenthal, and
For those who liked excitement, an allt0II1Obll8.l'il.C9 was l1eld among
Pauline Chaney, Helen Quartel and Bernice Berger, -all noted sports-
women. Helen got the lead, and would have won if her mechanic,
Robert Baumheckel, hadn't overlooked a leak in t.he gasoline tank.
Bernice Berger won, for Pauline Chaneyfs car overturned. No damage
was donc, as the racer was a Ford, constructed by The Ruth Ford Co.,
and thferefore indestructible.

Pauline Schroy, Iona Pence, and Louise Kramer did a thriving business.

Miss Kramer's masterpiece was the delightful allegorical pastoral entitled
"Ye Pleasant Wanderings in the Land of Dickens." A miniature book-
shop, across the aisle, sold books written and edited by Daytonians. The
best sellers were, "Autobiography of a Cartoon-ist,', by Richard NVester-
field, "Philosopl1ical and Psychological Lectures of the 20th Century" by
Frances Lehman, Ulihodernized Translation of Vergil's Aeneid" by
Katherine Scott, "The Debater's Helping Hand" by Herbert Kahn and the
"Encyclopedia of J okes" by Russel Brundige.
Dorothy Crew and Katherine Johnson, photographers, took many
pictures of the exhibition. These were made into post cards and sold in
a. booth presided over by Marion Harvey and Margaret Haas, expert
saleswomen. Jeanette Crew, the famous sculptress, Josephine Hastings,
a sketch artist, and Ruth Kimball, a maker of pottery, offered their wares
for exhibition and sale in a booth opposite the lemonade stand. This
was very popular, as it was managed by Ruth McPherson and Priscilla
Miller, expert caterers.
Eva Miller, Charlotte Neidhamer, Nellie Liddil and Linwood Hoover,
all very active missionary workers, constantly attended the exhibition
in the hope of interesting some of the spectators in their work. They
were aided in this noble task by the Rev. David McConna.ughey and the
great foreign missionary, Robert Corwin. They were not very successful,
as everyone was using his money in bettin.g on the great boxing match
between Ollie Klee and Jack Keefer. As neither Klee nor Keefer won,
Lysle Butler, the referee, asked that since no one had either lost or won
money in betting, they should donate the amount they had betted to the
missionary cause. For this genfelrous act the missionary workers gave
him a vote of thanks. '
Some of the class of '21 were unable to attend. Pauline Doughty,
New York Police Commissioner, and her two best policewomen sent their
regrets. Charles Breisch, entangled in an old suit over a colt, could
not come. Florence Bleck, chairman of the Needlework Guild of Hono-
lulu, was not present, neither were her helpers, Catherine Paul and Ruth
Orr. It was rumored that Alyss Unger, Hozella Zehring and others were
happily married. Still others were not located. The city commissioners
gained so much popularity, however, during the exhibition, that their
congratulated each other on their chances of re-election.
The pencil stopped. UPlease go on," I begged. It remained motion-
less. I waited and waited without result. I have lost hope of ever

Who's Who in the Senior Class.
HO is who in the Senior class? This most important question
has puzzled many of the Seniors themselves. They have studied
and fretted for the answer, but all to no result. At length one
promising person suggested that we have a contest, so that each Senior
might enter the 'race in the capacity for which he might think him-
self best iitted. Then three of the best friends of the class would be asked
to act as judges. These would be Iinalginaltion, Sense of Humor, and Com-
mon Sense, all of whom were to promise to give a fair decision. This
was no sooner said than done, and the results follow:
ln the list of the most intelligent were many favorites, including
George Owings, Pauli11e Doughty, Nellie Liddil, and June Dilts. George
was awarded the decision because of his knowledge of the art of sleeping
which is so little known to some of us.
That of the most coquettish was another difficult decision. Natalie
Larson, Ruth McPherson, Jane McCann, Gwendolyn. lVeeks, Katherine
Scott, and Catherine Suber were all close contestants. XVe thought that
Gwendolyn would carry the vote, but we were mistaken. The judges
decided in favor of petite Caltherine.
Cuteness was awarded to Ray lVelsh. Rasil Leever was at strong
rival, but it was decided that he couldnt fill the place as well as Ray.
The decision as to the best i11 the art of argument was unanimously
awarded to Robert Knee. It is indeed a delight to hear him argue.
Sometime just close your eyes and listen and you will think that the
shade of the departed Burke is right there before you.
Modesty is indeed a fine cliaracteristic, and the choice was hard
to make. This pecllliarity seemed to be most common among the Seniors,
owing to the large number who entered the contest. Robert McCon-
naughey, Pauline Chaney, Letha lVilkinson, Shelby Rurgher, Robert
Foose, Frances Lehman, and Dorothy Crew were all popular riva.ls. The
judges finally decided on Frances Lelnnan because of her habit of blush-
ing whenever she sees anyone looking in her direction.
Good nature was to be awarded next and Betty F 'olger and Margaret
Halteman were the closest of rivals for this honor, when suddenly Sense
of Humor vanished and Iinagination faded away. Of course it was
impossible to go on with the contest with only one judge so it had to be
closed until these judges could be secured again. If anyone happens
to find Illlilglllatltin or to see Sense of Humor in his wanderings through
life, will you let us know? NVe should like to award the remaining honors
to the most deserving in the class.

History of the Class of 1922
We, the Class of ,22, took our great pl11nge from the grade school
into l1igl1 school, with all its IICNVIIOSS and added responsibilities, 1llllCll as
tl1e Slllilll boy who is lLlll'0WIl into a sl1allow pool for l1is first swi111111i11g
Our first pool was l'a.rker High School. Here we were given a. privi-
lege wl1icl1 has llllt bee11. tl1e good fortune of all l'll'PSlllll0l1 to enjoy. This
privilege. was to carry 011 a SySf-Pill of self-government, modeled after our
own city gover11u1ent. As a. good start for our high school career, we
iuade a success of this VQlll'1lll't!. Then, we were ready for a deeper stream
with a tugging t'llI'1'9llf- where Ollly tl1e iittest Slll'VlVPS. The stream was
Steele Higl1 School, and tl1e l'll1'l'0llf was Greater Responsibility. XVe
were perniitted to pick subjects from a l1'lllllll0l' of com-ses. These were tl1e
college, general art, iI14lllStl'lt1.l, illllll l'0llllIl9l't'lill courses. It required
llllll'll thought to pick that course which Wtlllltl best 9llllt'2li9 IIS for our
life's work. At the begi1111i11g of till? first year an aittractive reception
was given to 11s by t.l1e Juniors. This S01l'll0lll0l'9 year was occupied,
generally, i11 getting il.l'l1llil.llli9'4l. lVe were aided in tl1is by tl1e various en-
joyable entertainnients give11 by the English classes. Most of our 111e111-
bers were soon repi-esented in some special activity, either dramatic,
literary, social, athletic, or lllllSll'2ll.
Our J11ni1o+ryear l'U1llllll'lll'Gll with a reception to tl1e S'0lJll0lll0l'PS,
The whole year has been an active 0119 for tl1e lll9lllll9l'S of '22, From
the ti111e when we entered Steele, the Steele spirit has rooted itself
deep infto our hearts. We have tried to inanifest it by giving to Steele
tl1e best that is in 11s. Our scholarship is l1igl1. This was Sll0W11 by
tl1e twenty-one Jllllllll' names Ollt of fifty-six names o11 tl1e 111erit list. We
have CIIUSQII exceedingly capable otlicers to lead our class. We justly
claim to have 0119 of tl1e best class organizations which has ever been
within the walls of Steele. Ulll' goo-d fellowship and ability -to work to-
gether were proven by the i111111e11se success of tl1e "Junior Follies of
1921." lVe are more than proud to wear tilt? rings a11d pins which are the
0Illlll9lllS of our class. We hope to lllillliti our Sllllllil' year lll0l'0 profitable,
if possible, than our Junior year. Our ambition is to nlake "l922"i the
best class that ever was g'l'ZlllllIl1tt-'il from Steele.
Finally, we sl1all be ready to plunge into life witl1 its difficulties to
be faced and 0Vl"l'00lll8. May the Class of '22 pass througl1 life with tl1e

has been realized. At lzlst, we are il pau-t. of Steele.
Although we were alt iirst S0lllt'XVll2lt, looked down upon by the
Juniors and Seniors, as they wore very probably looked dow11 upon when
they were Sophoniores, we S0011 proved that we vould hold our ow11 with
the best of them. Many of the, 1-lass of '23 llave, this year, distinguished
themselves in their studies. 'Phey have done this llllt only for themselves,
but also for their l'lilSS and school. Let us not forget, in alddition, that
the work of the class as il, whole has been very good.
ln zrthletit-s our class is especially strong, having llltllly athletes of
reall ability. The Seniors, gJ,'l'2lllllil.flllQ this year, need never fear that the
fanne and glory whivh Steele has won for herself along this line will ever
Not only in zlthletirs, but also in the various societies, is the clam of
'23 well represented. 'l'h.e. som-iety work is al. very ilnporttzult part of the
srhool zirtivities, und it is t'llt'0lll'2lg1lllQ to 11ote the interest whieh the
Sophoniores have taken in it.
lt is now our privilege to curry forward the banner of the lied and
lllawk, to live for it. and to work for it. Steele tlttlllilillllli our besft, and
Steele will reeeive our best. The lnost of our history lies before us, the
greagtest work is yet. to be done. NVllz1t the future holds in store for the
next two years, none can foretell. Nevertlieloss, be assured that the class
of '23 will bring honor und glory to the sm-hool we love the best.

The Stranger's Story at the Inn
'I' was some years ago," began the stranger, talking to a group ol'
people at the little inn in the northern part of England, "that l
was traveling in the south of Afriea. There were eight in our party,
hesides the natives whom we took along. XVe went partly for explora-
tion, and partly for hiologieal specimens for the British Museum. Une
ol' our party was a. young: man who eame from somewhere in this very
region. llow he eame to he of the party, I do not now remember, for
l was the last to join. lt is suflieient to know that he was young' and
adventlu-ous and greatly interested in our work.
We had been several weeks on our journey, and had made eonsider-
ahle progress with our eolleetions. lVe were eoming' ever nearer the
unexplored region. when we eamped one night on the hanks of an almost
unknown river. lt had never heen explored more than a few miles ahove
the site ol' our present ramp, and we were very desirous to explore it
further. It was, however, a dangerous, hazardous underta.king'. It was
impossihle for the whole party to go, and the young man, John l'a.lmer,
hy name, tilled with a. desire to he the iirst to explore the mysteries of the
stream, otfered to eommand a small party for the purpose. lle had
shown sueh remarkable eourage and skill all through our journey, that
we judged it wise to allow him to command a. small expedition to
travel towards the souree of the river, while the rest of our party remained
in eneampment on its hanks until his return. We allowed him two
weeks for exploration, thinking that it might not he wise for him to go as
far as the souree, and that in a week he eould go as far as would he
'l'he evening lnefore his departure, he eame to my tent, and talked
to me for a long time. l had taken quite a liking' to him, and I think he
liked me in return. NYe talked mueh of home, as men do when they are
in distant lands.
liefore he left, he gave me a gold wateh that he had been l'2lI'l'.VlllgI
with him, told me to keep it for him until his return, and if anything
should happen, to endeavor to return it to his father. When men
travel in the jungles, it. is the eommon thing to expert disaster, and
guard against it.
I saw him off the next morning aml we watched until the beml of
the river hid him from our view. We waited two weeks for him, and on
the fifteenth day he had not returned. We lengthened our stay to three
weeks, finally to a month. We sent another party up the river to look
for him, but at the end of a week they came back without having found
a trace of him. As sorry as we were to go, we could do nothing else,
since we had made an agreement with him, that if he returned and found
us gone, he should go back to the coast and await us there.
Several months later, our expedition finished, we arrived at the little
coast town, hoping against hope that we should Iind John there. But we
were disappointed, nothing had been seen or heard of him. We were
forced to return to England without him.
l have given up hope of ever seeing him again, but I have not yet
given up hope of finding his father. I should like to give him the watch
and tell hiln what I know of his son's bravery, anld the expedition on
which he was lost. My purpose has never been weakened, in spite of
the fact that our papers, among them his address, were lost in the jungle,
and that I never knew his last 11ame. He called himself Palmer, but we
all knew the name was not his own."
The stranger sat for a few moments, silent. All his listeners were
deeply moved, but instead of being sad and thoughtful at thelconclusion
of his story, they all looked joyfully toward a young man who had just
entered, unseen by the stranger. He came slowly up to the fire, where
the man was sitting, and said, f'My friend, do you not remember me?"
'Phe stranger, almost overwhelmed at seeing the man whom he had long
ago given up as lost, was hardly able to speak. When he found his voice
he said joyfully, "My boy, I have never dared to hope for this moment."
NVhen they had both talked a great deal, and laughed, and the
stranger had found to his amazement that the inn, keeper was .Iohn's
father, he thought to ask J0llll how he had been able to reach the coast,
and how his party had fared in the jungle.
"We went up the river as far as we were able," said John, "and
then struck into the interior. I have many won.derful things to relate
to you, but more of that later. Briefly, I fell ill with a fever in one of
those horrible swamps, and had to be carried many miles to a place where
my men could build a camp. There they tended me with great care, and
after many, many weeks I recovered. When we finally reached the coast.
you had already left for England, so I joined another party, and returned
to the interior. l have been in England now only two months. I have
never ceased wondering about you and the rest. of our party, and it is
one of the happiest events of my life to see you again."

My Book Friends
S I drew the window t'lll't43.II1S, I derided our library was the nieest
plaee in the world. Outside a few belated people hurried home-
ward. The rain pa.ttered eeaselessly against the panes and the
bare arms of the trees rattled with every fresh gust of wind. I poked
the,tire into a bright blaze, then settled for a quiet. and eomfortable
evening. thinking of the lines:
'tSome still removed plare will fit,
NVhere glowing embers through the room,
Teaeh light to eounterfeit a gloom."
Of 4-ourse I would read something. That part of the room where
my hooks are kept was mysteriously dark, but I knew where eaeh favorite
stood on its shelf and eould easily find what I wanted.
NVhile I was trying to decide whether I would rather go to King
Ai-thur's Court or to Treasure Island with Jim Hawkins, I suddenly
saw coming toward me from the shadows, an unmistakable figure-it
was that of Little Boy Bluei I stared with amazement and delight. I
asked him a question but he only pointed behind him, blew his toy
horn and was gone. Then I saw that he was the iirst. of a. long lille of
people, coming from the direetion of the bookshelves. There was Alive
in XVonderland, who looked just as I had always known she must, with
her golden 1-urls and pink dress. Several other children danced straight
down from my tattered nursery rhyme book.

inimitable Mrs. Mieawber came past, leaning on the arm of her depen-
dable spouse who had just finished the words, 'tSomet.hing will surely
turn up." They were followed by several oth-er Dickens characters,-
Sarah Galnp, with her bottle of gin for emergency, Squeers in his suit of
scholastic black, and Old Peggoty leading that dear child, David
Copperfield. Peggoty was laughing so hard over something, that one of
the buttons popped right off her broad back into my lap. A melancholy
figure glided past but. he couldn't fool ine. I knew him-he was Sidney
Carton. ' A
There was the glint of firelight on silver uiail-then came Sir
Parsifal, the Pure, with some holy vision in his eyes. Behind him with
slow, graceful carriage walked Elaine, the Lily Maid of Astolot. 4 She
was lovelier than I had ever imagined any person could be. She carried
pressed to her boso-111, a silken, embroidered cover for a shield.

The Maple Tree
Little red lea.ves on yon wee maple tree
Oh, dance with the joyous young breeze!
Youth of the forest incarnate art thou
Frolicking 'neath the old trees.
Against the black trunks of the oak and the elm,
How brightly your gay garments shine!
How willing the sunshine caressing each leaf
Thus duty and fun to combine.
Uh, laugh, little lllilple, in sunshine and wind!
The rain soon will fall, wet and cold.
Frolic in gladness while youth is thine own,
For you must be sta.id when you're old.

Tl1is year Steele repeated her perforinance of lillfl and again XVUII
the state championship. The best TUHIIIS from all sections of Ohio were
met Zllltl defealted by big scores. The greatest victory came wl1e11 the big
West Tech11ical tea111 of l'leveland fell before the Steele offense by a score
of 63-T. This victory gave Steele the right to clai111 the state champion-
ship, for NVQ-st Tech was defeated by only 0110 team-East Tech of Cleve-
land, T-0. East Tech by virtue of its victory over Scott lligh also claimed
the state honors, but refused to play Steele on a neutral Held.
The annual attair with Stivers this year gave Steele another big
celebration. The IIS-0 win was a decisive victory over a big team which
The team this year was a well rounded football machine. The line
did its part i11 every branch of the game as Sll0WI1 by the total scores-602
to 36 for the opponeiits. On defense the line was invincible, while it
charged llill'tl and quickly on offense, allowing the backs to rip otf long
gains again and ilgillll. The backiield was the wonder of the state. Geh-
ring Zllltl llobeleit could always be counted upon to gain through the line,
wl1ile the end running of Klee and Keefer kept the stands wild with entl111-
siasm. O1lie's kicking was considered the best i11 the Ohio high schools,
Qllltl the Keefcr-to-Klee pass gained every ti111e.
All in all, the SUZXSOII was a great success and tl1e Ullllll truly de-
served all the praise it got. The record of this year's team has made pos-
sible a schedule for 1921 such as no Steele team has ever before played.

Steele made a late start in basketball after having one of the most
successful football seasons ever enjoyed by any Steele team. It was
December 30 when the team took the iioor against East High of Colum-
bus. The 41-9 victory in this first game gave the team aidded spirit to face
the remaining games in a hard schedule. There were many Close ga.mes
whirh kept the followers of the team always on edge, but when the season
ended there were only three games on the losing side of the ledger. To
Stivers goes credit for all of th-ease. The last t.wo Stivers games were thril-
lers and will never be forgotten by those present. Fight and spirit were
there to the last second, struggling to bring bark the victory.
The team was new this year and it was not until the first of February
that the rough edges were rounded otf and the team began to turn in its
best brand of basketball. Keefer and Klee were the only members who
had played last year. They were both right there at all times, fighting to
win. J ark showed up especially well at the tournament and won a place
o11 the All-State first team. In fact, Steele was well represented i11 the
All-State ranking, every main either making one of the teiams or winning
honorable mention. fButler at renter began to look like a world-beater
toward the end of the season, and by his steady playing and all-around
ability, won l'8C0gIlltl0I1.J The t.wo guards were always there at the right
time. Harlow's shooting was the subjert of a lot of comment, while
Seibert was a terror at tearing in on the tip-off. Both of these men will
be back next yeair to help make a winning team. Two other n1e11 who will
be right after jobs next year are Buehanon and Longnerker, who are both
experts at the scoring end of the game. Sharkey and Hoerner are also
candidates for positions on the teaun that promises to be a state eliampion.
The season was one of the best in years and the spirit of the fellows
excelled that of any previous team. Always working, always fighting,
always giving the best the.y had to win, they formed a strong basketball

Everything points to a very successful diamond schedule for 1921.
Two games that have been played were won with big scores. Judging from
these two games, everything seems to be working smoothly and the team
is expected to retain the city championship honors which Steele has held
for some years.
Seibert, who was chosen to captain this year's diamond experts, is
station-ed behind the plate, and is showing a lot. of baseball. "He will be
glad to be with us next yearf' as the saying is, to make a.nother winner in
1922. Becker is also cutting capers behind the bat, receiving the offerings
of Belden and Liesenhotf, who have been turning in low-hit g21lll6S that
would make many a big leaguer envious.
The infield looks like a n1illio11 dollars. Buchanon. at third and Long-
necker at short, are old hands at the game and have been performing in
great style. Hoerner is playing a good game around the keystone sack,
while Keefer is back on the job at Hrst playing his old game.
The outfield likewise is showing up well. Faust, Stahl, and Harlow
are covering the outer gardens in a way to discourage the best of hitters.
Ha.rlow's hitt.ing has featured the game so far, and is such as to worry
the opposing pitchers.
All the members have shown their willingness to work together and
this teamwork, coupled with an unusual number of experienced players,
points to another city championship.

Advice from the Prophets
In the far and distant highlands, dwells the prophet O-I-NO-ALL,
He whose wisdom: great surpasses all our friends and all our teachers.
In a secret cave he dwelleth, far from buildings, shops or houses,
Yet the story of his wisdom, of his great foretelling powers,
To the ends of earth has traveled, to the globe's remotest corners.
After days of weary traveling, I at last found where his cave is,
Saw him standing at its entrance, watching, waiting for my coming.
"Welcome, stranger, come and rest here, and I'll tell you all the answers
To the questions you have brought here. Ah! you see I know your mission,
Yes, I even know the questions which were giv'n you by your classmates.
Rest upon this broad rock's surface, and make notes of this I tell you:
Do not try to write real poems, they'1l not be appreciated.
Try free verse, Miss Louise Kramer, for it now has a good market.
Ah ! Bob Mc, 'twas not your necktie, but at your face the la.dies chuckled
Do not fret, my dear Miss Hohler, when they call you tall and stately,
Edith Bryant would change places with you gladly, so she tells me.
Not a red tie, Basil, never, no, not even to please a lady,
For I fear it would not look well, with your bright and glowing halo.
Never seek revenge, Gene Haerlin, though you sought facts on the navy.
Mr. Kahn thought he was helping when he found a volume for you
Titled, 'How to make a rowboat' 3 thank him for his kindly helping.
No, Dave Mc, the cho-rd do-mi-sol never was nor is Ionic.
You have made a. good yell leader, Charles, preserve your vocal organs,
For your voice would prove your fortune in an auctioneer's position.
Herman, hire a secretary, then your labors will be lightened,
Then you will not need to hurry or to miss an important meeting.
NVhy not wear a large sunbonnet, then you'l1 not have freckles, Gwenfnieg
For a color combination, why not make a red and black one?
Breisch, do not affect a derby, for itis very unbecoming
For a person of your stature and your general appearance.
The forms for a proposal are quite large in number, Norman,
Perhaps Claxton and McGinnis could assist you in this matter.
Yes, Miss Schroy, there is 'big money' in composing jazz-time ballads,
You can elevate the business by your sweet and simiple lyrics.
Yes, Miss Fryar, Elsie Voris is an able riding teacher 5
She can show you how to gallop at a rate that's fairly brea.thless.
No, Miss Chaney, do not write your letters on green linen paper
For your friend might be insulted, since he is a college freshman.
Keith, I fear you're too conceited, those young la.dies did not vamp you.
They perhaps, were only wishing you'd go away so they could gossip.

Zehring, never use sarcasm, even though someone deserves it,
For, he, like you, may use it, and then perhaps youlll suffer.
Never contradict a womanl, Mote, you really should know better,
If you make much noisy racket when you enter, I don't blame her.
Blocher, use a dictionary, it will answer all your questions.
Rench, if you ca.n't start your speech well, why not purchase a self-starter?
That is all," the prophet murmured, t.urned, and passed into his dwelling.

The Shearing of the Locks
fWith apologies to Popej
What frightful happenings from little deeds are sprung'
How fair the locks whose fatal hour has rung!
Oh, for a tongue of leaping, burning fiame
To sing the deathless pangs and crimson shame !
Oh, Mothers who in trembling silence wait
The dread blow, th' metallic snips of Fate!
The mid-day sun in golden splendor shone
But paused, ashamed, where radiant Ruth, alone
Before the whiteness of her dressing table stands,
With consummate skill employing both her hands
Now with a rosy finger tip S118 trains
A jet black lock to curl o'er snowy plains
Of lofty brow, now a soft puff of white
She guides across her face, it is alight with snowy beauty
more than mortal, now
A fiuff of pink moves quickly o'er her cheeks,
They bear a b-loom which maiden coynless speaks.
A line of red,-her lips like roses glow
Or like her face when vagrant breezes blow,
The curling tresses from a dainty ear,
Reveal a pink-like shell to gazers far a11d near.
One touch more, the jetty brows are bent
In arch of high disdain, yet not content.
VVith pouting lips there stands the maiden fair,
And in. despair surveys her flowing hair.
Black as the great Jove's' frown it ripp-les down
And wraps her slender form in silken gown.
Therein her sorrow lies, alas that curling hair
Is far too long to be judged truly fair.
As stands the lovely maiden grieving so,
She sees come tripping past her in the street below
A piquant, saucy lassie, on whose head
The golden locks are bobbed. In sudden dread
Lest she be thought less' lovely than that lass,
Ruth seizes scissors, and with snips they pass
Through the dark locks, with a great shout
Of triumph she sees tresses all about
Fall on the floor, while now her haughty head
VVith bobbed hair, its curls of ebon shed
Is borne with coquetry aloft. The maiden fair
Proceeds to school to show her sheared hair,
The envy of her mates, while at her home
Her matron-mother l1l0llI'IlS with tearful moan
The locks which grew for sixteen years an.d more,
And n.ow lie wasted 'pon the disgraceful floor.
She gathers lovingly into an old shoe box
Each one of those long, black and curling locks.
