K History of Steele
Dayton has always been noted for the way in which it has fostered
education, for even as far back as 1807, there had been founded the Dayton
Academy, a private institution. About 1840, a, public school was established.
Ten years afterwards, in 1850, our first public High School, one of the
earliest in the state, was organized. The first class, which was graduated
June 23, 1854, had two graduates. The diploma of one, Hester VVidener.
has the signature of the principal, james Campbell, the father of Miss
Campbell of the Art Department. This diploma now hangs in our principal's
On the site where the Dayton Academy had been, Central High School
was built in 1857. It was here that the student of the classics found work in
both Latin and Greek, equal to his aspirations. He read, after he had
completed a preparatory course, Caesar's Commentaries, the larger part of
Virgil's Aeneid, some of the Eclogues, the most famous orations of Cicero,
the Odes of Horace, and a large amount of Livy. In Greek, he translated
the Iliad, Xenophon's Anabasis, and the orations of Demosthenes. Besides
these, prose composition constituted a great portion of his work. French and
German were also taught. In mathematics, a student was directed in Arith-
metic, Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry, and some practical exercises
in actual surveying, which were greatly enjoyed. Botany and Chemistry
were the science subjects taught. The course of study pursued was in every
respect equal to the one of the New England Academy, which prepared
pupils for college and which imprinted forever upon them the love of higher
education, a characteristic of our Anglo-Saxon forefathers.
ln 1891 it became necessary to provide for a larger number of students
than could be accommodated in Central High School and, acordingly, in the
same year, contracts were let for the new school to be built at the intersection
of Main Street and Monument Avenue. The building was formally dedicated
April 13, 1894. Thus the old Central High School with all the pleasant
recollections associated with it, passed into history, and the new Steele. with
its beautiful architecture, became the present Alma Mater.
The total cost of the school was about 5lS325,000, and at the suggestion of
the Alumnal Association the building was named Steele High School to com-
memorate the valuable and gratuitous services of Robert VV. Steele in the
interests of the public schools of Dayton.
It was thought that the building would be large enough for at least twenty
years, but in the space of five years it was full to overflowing. Captain Charles
B. Stivers held the principalship of the High School from 1872 until 1895.
During his term, he drew close to him the love and reverence of the pupils
and teachers, and the whole communtiy became his debtor. For two years
after the resignation of Captain Stivers, the position was held by Malcolm
Booth and from 1897-1900, Mr. William B. Werthner was principal. He was
followed by Charles L. Loos Jr., a man most beloved and greatly respected.
In 1895 a deviation in the school's history took place in the introduction of
single daily sessions, extending from half past eight to one o'clock. At the
first, this was not saticfactory but with some modifications it has proved to be
successful and has lasted until the present time. The Physicsulaboratory
is doubtless one of the finest in the country. The library, which at that time
was comprised of two thousand volumes, has been steadily increased until
now we have the benefit and pleasure of a library of between 4500 and 5000
At the suggestion of a pupil, Sherlock Gass, and through the efforts of Miss
Elizabeth Evans, a teacher, the Decorative Art Association was organized.
This was in 1899 and the society was able, in the following years, to place
throughout the building a large number of photographs, paintings, casts, and
sculptures. They were aided in their work by small fees collected from
students and generous donations from various sources. Their last valuable
addition to the school was the statue of "The Lion."
Athletics have always played a large part in the life of Steele students,
both girls and boys. Besides training in ordinary gymnastics we have had our
defeats and victories in baseball, basketball, and football. For some years
past we have held the State Championship in football and the 1921 Squad
carried from the Gridiron the trophies of the Middle-West.
Back in the days when Old Central High was still "the school" there
was only one boy's literary society, the old "Philomathean" which was founded
in 1858. In 1856 the "Eccritean," the first girl's society was formed and
in 1883 the "Spur" was organized. There -are now many societies, both
literary and otherwise, which have been organized and encouraged through
Along with our activities are the interscholastic debates. These have been
held with the high schools of Columbus, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis, and we
are proud of their record. -- '
Interest in music has been manifested in our musical societies, our orchestra,
and in the presentation of concerts and operas.
Steele's curriculum has been modernized and the school has grown and
will continue to grow in public interest. New subjects have been introduced,
specially trained instructors have been acquired 5 the courses, as far as possible,
have been made effective, manual training and the household arts, printing
and comercial courses have been instituted. A
What Steele has been and the spirit she has displayed in the past are merely
harbingers of the future. Her students, under the guiding hand of our present
principal, Mr. I. H. Painter, will pull together to make it a greater and

This Annual is a memorial to you who are about to leave Steele
forever. The tall stone tower rising against the sky will always
in some way symbolize the fundamental principles of life and the
elements of knowledge acquired in the high school days. You
have helped to build another tower which for more than seventy
years has been growing in height, and breath, and stability. Its
foundations have been deeply laid by the pupils and teachers who
have gone before. It is the tower of Steele's long and honorable
As the years go by the days spent here will become more and
more a bright spot in the vista of your recollection. Some of you
will go to college, some into business and other lines offserviceg
but the new interests will never completely erase the emotional
appeal of old Steele. As we walk through the quiet halls we recall
the thousands who have passed through the school, leaving behind
them their class picture upon the wall, a memory, traditions, and
silence, but in their hearts is left an affection that will persist. In
the years of youth impressions are more intense and enduring
than in later years, and the lapse of time adds to them a poetic
charm. The rooms where, through many weeks, you have labored
through translations of Caesar or experiments in Physics or plays
of Shakespeare may become forever mystically associated in your
minds with the charm of history, the wonders of science, and the
beauty of literature.
V As we recall the thousands who have spent three active years
here' and gone out to take their part in the world, we realize how
short is the time from matriculation to graduation, and how neces-
sary it is to make heroic efforts to develop in each pupil while here
a desire for knowledge, a love for truth, a reverence for religion,
and to lit him to go forth equipped with a sound body, a strong
character, prepared to make and to hold a worthy place in the
home and in the state.
W'e have tried to bring all these things to each of you. We trust
that the ideas and the ideals acquired at Steele will make your
lives better, happier, and more beautiful.
J. H. Painter

History of the Class of 1922
HE Class of '22 will soon be past history. Four short years ago we
started our high school career at Parker. Our class instituted the
self-government plan modeled after the city government, and this
proved to be a great success.
In September of 1919, we entered Steele. This was the greatest event
in our lives, to which we had been looking forward for a long time. For
the Hrst few weeks, we were timid little Sophomores, awed by the superior
learning and dignity of the Juniors and Seniors. We soon became acquainted
with Steele, however, and felt as much at home as did our upper class-mates.
VVe enjoyed immensely the reception which the Juniors gave to welcome us.
VVe soon became interested in the various activities of the school and were
valuable additions to the societies.
Time sped swiftly on and behold, we were Juniors! In our turn we enter-
tained the Sophomores. The Steele spirit was evidenced in all our under-
takings. We entered into all the activities of the school with vigor. We
excelled in scholarship and had more merit pupils than either of the other
two classes. VVhen we organized, we elected a capable staff of officers.. Tis-
cher Hoerner was our President. With the help of these leaders, we developed
a remarkable spirit of co-operation. Our "junior Follies" was a tremendous
success, and we cleared a greater amount of money than any other Junior
Class had ever succeeded in doing. At the end of the year, we gave our
Senior Farewell at Memorial Hall. It was a festive occasion which was
enjoyed by all who attended.
And now we are Seniors, at last. Under our capable President, Sam
Lebensburger, our class spirit has increased and multiplied. Our debating
team is equal to that of any previous year. A large proportion of the
athletic teams are from the Senior Class. Our "Senior Carnival" succeeded
far beyond the expectations of everyone. The Class Play, "The Amazons,"
was well presented and was a financial success.
In a very short time we shall be out in life. Many will add to their store
of knowledge in the various colleges of the country, but, for some, graduation
means the end of their school life. Perhaps we scarcely realize all the valuable
and beneficial lessons we have learned at Steele, but some time we may value
them as we should.
Soon we must bid our last farewell to these halls where we have spent so
many happy hours of study. Our memories of the years in Steele will be the
happiest of our lives. Here we were young,+here we made our friendships-here
we saw visions of things beautiful.

The Senior Play
After much deliberation the Senior Class this year decided to present
"The Amazons" a farcical-romance of English Society Life. VVritten by
Arthur Pinero, delightful in its whimsicality, it was particularly adapted
for our purpose. A
The play was received with an enthusiasm that proved it a decided success.
Much of the success was due to the careful choice of the cast.
Mabel Blaik, as the haughty and eccentric Lady Castlejordan, handled her
part .with an ease that was delightful to the audience.
Marion Fulmer, with a professional ease of manner, was most convincing
in her part of Lady Noelin, the eldest daughter of Lady Castlejordan.
As the second daughter, Lady Wilhelinina, Virginia Kerr was a charmingly
feminine foil to her boyish sister, Lady Thomasin.
Helen Clagett brought many laughs through her excellent portrayal of the
mischievous "boy-girl" character, Lady Thomasin, the third daughter.
Rose Cohen, as Sargent Shuter, made the most of her small role and surpris-
ed us all by her susceptibility to a certain young man's charm.
As "Youatt", the family servant, Kathryn Hahn was excellent in the
small but not insignificant part.
Richard Schwartz, as Reverend Minchin, proved himself a typical English
clergyman and as the Silent Lover of Lady Castlejordan, alas, what sympathy
he did arouse. A
As Lord Litterly, the carefree English gallant nephew of Lady Castlejordan,
Carl Boese not only won the heart of Lady Noeline, but gained many new
admirers as well.
Harold Dunham, as Count de Grival, who continually affirms that he is
"French by birth, yes, but English to my backbone" was a "howling success"
and the encouraged suitor for the heart of Lady Wilhelmina.
The part of Lord Tweenways, the delicate English "dude", madly in love
with Lady Thomasin, without much encouragement from her, was portrayed
excellently by Herbert Ellis.
Most of the laughs of the evening were brought about through the team
work of Harold Dunham and Herbert Ellis.
Two other members of the cast who were important in the unraveling of the
"tangle", were Lawrence Bear, as "Orts the poacher, who was most convincing
in his make-up and his knock-outs, and Fitton, the gamekeeper, john Harold,
who was a shrewd bribe taker and a most effective liar.
All the success, however, was due to the "Masterhand" Miss Grace H.
Stivers, who was assisted by Miss Gladys Moser. The cast and the Senior
Class deeply appreciate their untiring efforts in making this play a success.

with veiled faces, and screaming brown children. I gazed in wonder at
the low, dingy buildings. Here was India, the mystic India of my dreams,
but, what was even Calcutta when one knew not a soul? A sudden, bitter
loneliness crept over me. Surely in all the world there was not a person as
lonely as I.
I stared helplessly at the dingy shops. .Xt the door of a tumbled-down
shop I saw a woman. She thrust a brown, slender hand from beneath her
white robes and motioned for me to come to her. I went because I was
"Madame would want to have her future foretold ?" she asked eagerly, her
heady- black eyes glittering brightly.
"Madame would not." I answered.
"Madame would wish to see the present?" murmured the woman.
"Madame would not-but why the present? I know I'm by myself in India,
and am lonely. NYhy should I want to know more.
"Madame might learn of friends and what they are doing," she suggested.
"Yes, I might. How can you tell me this ?l' I asked, merely to see what her
reply would be.
"I can not tell, but my crystal can. VVill you let the crystal, the wondrous
crystal show you F"
I nodded my head, signifying that I wished her to tell me that the crystal
knew. I was led into a tiny room, the walls of which were draped in black
satin, on which beamed countless silver moons and stars. In one corner, on a
tabaret, rested a great crystal. It was quite the largest crystal I had ever seen.
l was told to seat myself before the crystal, in a fantastically carved chair, and
then to watch the crystal closely.
I did as I was told. The pictures that I saw were amazing. As I watched
the figures, I was filled with wonder. Many figures I did not recognize
but there were many that I did. VVhat was revealed, follows:
I heard Iiarl Hoover delivering an inspiring and uplifting sermon. I saw
Iilva Heck as a Missionary in China teaching little Orientals their A. H. Cs.
sz.: , ' , ,
Verl Perrine, Ambassador to Great Britain, is quoted the world over. John
Vance is a Congressman. In the Senate, I saw Tischer Hoerner. Florence
Worrell is hailed by women voters as the greatest Senatrix the State of Ohio
has ever had.
Then I saw Greenwich Village. Kathryn Plummer and Leila Nester, clad
respectively in lavender and pink knicker suits, run "The Purple Perriwinklef'
the most talked of tea shop in the Yillage. I11 one corner of the tea shop, sat
Grace lllcllhenny drawing tiny silhouettes. At a waffle shop, I saw Leroy
Martindale, and VVilliam XfVagner very energetically manipulating two beauti-
ful waflle irons. In an attic room, Ruth Roehmhildt was painting a fantastic
poster, in which she was using very cleverly, a new art scheme. Dainty Ruth
Klepinger and little Kathryn Knuth, I found busy teaching fancy dancing to
none but graceful children. r
William Payne, I found working diligently at a great desk. On a plaeard,
which rested on his desk, I read "VVillian Payne, Editor-in-Chief," and nearby
I saw a copy of "Payne's Review." -In the magazine I found articles written
by Ruth Gieger, Fanny Thal, John Harrold, and Walter Eickmeyer.
In the realms of music I found many of my former classmates. Kathryn
VVolf was seated at a piano playing one of her own compositions, which ri-
valled even the great Beethoven's. Helen Brown and Marjorie Roth are
known throughout the world for their pleasing voices. Orville W'right and
Paul Upson's work with the Steele quartet was not in vain, for both are with
the Metropolitan Opera Company.
The Lebensburger Advertising Company occupies a twenty-live story sky-
scraper. Many well-known people are in its employ. Kenneth Laurence and
Lawrence Strom are agents, advertising by way of cartc-Jgns. Beatrice Howell
is private secretary to the President of the concern. The building occupied
by the giant industry was designed by Becker, Faust and Siebert, the archi-
Society of the world turns to Stewart and Brunbaugh for the latest in
fashions. Lady Hamilton, nee Virginia Rowe, has opened a very select shop
in London, where amazing creations known as hats, are sold.
Back at Steele, on the Faculty list, I read the names of Elizabeth Gilbert,
Ethel Groth and Joe Colley. Virginia Kerr is in the Dramatic Art depart-
ment, while Dick Dobeleit heads the Athletic department. At Harvard, I saw
Tom Sharkey, as Coach of the VVorld Champion Football Team. Tom was
in great glee, for his team had just given "the Praying Colonelsn a terrible de-
feat. Louis Poock, President of Harvard, leads the college youths once a year
in yells. He has been declared the best college President in the world.

Dayton, I realized, was a flourishing city. Harriet Rosnagle is Mayoress.
The Commissioners are 'Kathryn Hahn, Vera Delscamp, Carl Boese, Laurence
Bear and Helen Brown. Carl Brown may be seen riding leisurely around in
a dashy red roadster nearly every day, for he is Fire Chief. Walter Ferguson.
Police Chief, has abolished all crime, as an arrest has not been made since he
was given the position. i v
Herbert Ellis, I found as the comedian in "Hot Cross Buns? He gives
the leading lady, Grace Flick, many unhappy hours. "Hot Cross Buns" is a
musical comedy written by Alice Edwards. Marion Fulmer's name blazes
forth from an electric sign in the Great White Way. Harold Dunham is play-
ing "Macbeth" Helen Kreager gave Mr. Dunham a peppy ffwrite-up" in the
New York Tribune, recently. Charles Wagner, after defeating William
Lowery, gained control of the Stock market. Donald Young is a successful
physician, and the most efficient nurse at Miami Valley Hospital is Nurse
On a book shelf in the Dayton Public Library, I saw the following Books:
"How I Entertain Them," by Elsie Mae.Congerg "Mathematical Impossi-
bilities," by Carl Mueller. "The Flamingo," by Burba, Allgire, and Bill,
"Battles I Have Fought," by Waldo Reed, "If I Were King," by Cetoneg
"Modern Poetry," by Rosina Hyer.
The Storms girls and Mary Owings have established a quaint little shop
where wait-heads are sold. The Pauley Typewriter Co. flourishes in Ci11cin-
nati. Ruth' Y6'l1'l1'g'3fld Kathryn Zile are society Matrons in the White House
Circle at Washidgton. Vera Welty and Lucy Dauskart have been successful
in their work at'i"The Boston School of Cookery." After these figures, came
countless others and all were successful in the world.
All this I saw and-no more. I begged in vain for the crystal to show me
more. The black-eyed Indian woman told me to return in a month and I
should learn more.
As I stepped from the tiny room, into the blazing Indian sun, I looked up
and-down the street that was not beautiful and found it had been quickly
changed! I wondered why, and then I realized I was no longer lonely, but
very gay. In my mind I still had the memory of the whole class of '22.
Hours later, in my hotel room, I pondered over the fortunes of my old high
school friends--the best friends one ever had.

N past years, Steele debating teams have added scholastic honors to the
already long list of victories, triumphs, and achievements inscribed
in the annals of the school. Debate has been supported with enthusiasm
by the Senior students this year. Contenders for debating honors have not
been few, for, at the preliminaries for the Auditorium debate, held early in
March, twenty-tive students participated. Six debators and two alternates
were selected by the judges to present the Auditorium debate on the Kansas
Court Question, March 21. This debate was in itself the preliminary for
the Steele-Shortridge debate.
Richard Schwartz, Sam Lebensburger, Orville XYright. john Yance. Yerl
Perrine, and Earl lloover were chosen. Two alternates were also selected.
Helen Clagett and Elva Heck.
The question for debate was:
"Resolved:-That courts of industrial relations, similar to the Kansas
Court, should be established throughout the United States for the arbi-
tration of disputes between capital and labor in public utilities."
Following the debate the following team was chosen to represent us in
the Steele-Shortridge Debate on the same question :-Sam Lebensburger,
Yerl Perrine, and Orville XYright, with Earl Hoover, as alternate.
In accordance with the plans for the Steele-Shortridge debate, Shortridge
came to Dayton May 26. The debate was held in the Auditorium before
an audience of enthusiastic Steele students, Shortridge supporters, and an
interested public. Our team upheld in a manner worthy of the highest
praise, the honor and good name of the school.
lireat credit is due the coaches of the team, Miss Mary Alice Hunter
and Mrs. Howard Beck, for the good work presented by the team.

Sophomore Class History
N the 6th of last September the rain descended upon Steele High in
great, watery sheets. lt just let go and fell, but the rain was not the
only thing that descended upon Steele that day, for about six hundred
Sophomores more .ir less, formed a human avalanche that nearly swamped
Steele, big as it is. Vwlet and awestruck, is it any wonder that our Hrst im-
pressions of this celebrated institution were not the brightest possible? VVhen
the superior juniors paraded up and down the hall, how we envied them, but
even in the short time we have been students in Steele, we have learned to love
and honor and to hght to make her the best school in existence.
Unorganized as we are, we have a right to feel proud of our record this
year. Some of our class have won fame in the Literary Societies, others have
made their mark in athletics, while still others, and not as few as might be,
have won a special honor in scholarship.
VVe do not dare to allow our memories to run back often to our coming to
Steele, for we remember far back in the dim-ages of the past that we were
once Freshmen. It may be that the juniors regarded their Sophomore year
the same way-who knows ?-but even as famed as their victories, and as
many and green as are their laurels, we do not feel that they have established
a record that cannot be excelled. A
Our class feels deeply the honor of belonging to a School of such high stan-
ards, and if we should fail to do our share toward upholding them, it will not
be due to a lack of effort on our part.
Should we attain glory and take positions of importance in the future,
we shall attribute our successes to that institution that sheltered us during
the most impressionable years of our lives,-Steele.

The Poetry of Robert Frost
OBERT FROST'S poetry is filled with a feeling of neighborliness
and with the sentiments of the laborer. He pictures scenes within the
knowledge and experience of the working man and woman, making
his verse breathe democracy and the homely spirit of America. As one
critic has said of him, "He has taken part in labor, often with his hands and
always with his spirit." It is gratitude for the home which he shows in the
"Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
They have to take you in."
. "I should have called it
Something you somehow haven't to deserve."
His poems are often just the conversation between two people, generally
of the humbler class, whose thoughts and ideas are as worthy of expression
as those of the educated. One poem, "The Home Stretch", tells the story
of a man and woman who have moved from the city to a house in the
country, and who converse with each other about their future in the rather
lonely little place. The poem is neither sad nor glad but it is Hlled with a
love for the quiet and the scenes of the country. The conversation through-
out the poem is in this fashion 3-
"The new moon!
VVhat shoulder did I see her over? Neither.
A wire she is of silver, as new as we
To everything. Her light won't last long.
It's something, though, to know we're going to have her
Night after night and stronger every night
To see us through the first two weeks."
Frost's poetry concerns just such people as "The Gum Gatherern, "The
Line Gang", and "The Housekeeperu. His verse is not entirely conversational,
however. One poem deals with the antithesis of Love which is limited to
earthly things and Thought which is unlimited in scope and governed by
imagination. Another deals with "The Hill VVife" and her loneliness and fear
in her home, far from any neighbor.
In his verses the poet shows an understanding of the lives of those whose
labor is confined to the soil. He knows that however low the position may
be, the poor, honest, hired-man of a farm has pride in his work and develops
his methods with as much care as a business man. "The Death of the Hired
Man" tells the story of a poor, old, worn-out hired man, who has returned to
the farm house at which he worked and has been received by his mistress,
who realizes that he is ill. The old man has been talking rather incoherently
of his desire for a new position, of the way -in which he tried to teach the
boys of the farm how to load the hay, and even of one boy who had gone
to the city and who, in his farmer days, had been loved most by the hired man.
Leaving him beside the kitchen tire, his mistress goes to meet her husband
to tell him about the old man's return. He is unsympathetic, however, for
PAGE SICVENTY-T'-TTC HPI
this laborer had been possessed of a tendency to leave the farm and wander
through the country at various times of the year. He is softened at last
by the entreaties of his wife, promises the looked-for job, and goes to the
kitchen, only to find the wanderer dead.
Such poetry will not be forgotten because it endows the life of those,
who really make a country, with beauty and meaning and even brings in its
humor. In discussing the spring, flowing from a mountain, one of Frost's
"l don't suppose the water's changed at all.
You and I know enough to know it's warm
Compared with cold, and cold compared with warm,
But all the fun's in how you say a thing."
Those of us who really love poetry for its spirit and meaning will appre-
ciate the poetry of Robert Frost, because it is truly American. Of his art
the poet himself says 3-
"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
Ethel Groth, '22
The Woods in Winter
A smooth, beautiful, soothing layer of snow,
Pale blue in the evening sunset.
A few little saplings scattered here and there
Shivering at the sight of the cold blanket about them.
Snow-covered boughs, reaching out in the fading light
And catching the few, lazy snowflakes
That fall down from above-.
All these make the beauty of the woods, in the winter.
In the night
A grey, silvery snow, shining and glistening
In the light of the moon.
The sighs of the little saplings
VVishing and praying for the gentle Zephyr to blow.
The shadows of the boughs on the glimmering blanket,
Swaying, in rythm, to the sound of the wind
As it whistles through the tree tops above,-
These are the beauties of the woods in the night.
Finally, the bright morning sun
Turns the snow to pure white,
While the song of an early red-bird,
Brings cheer with the morning light.

NEW' boarder had come to Mrs. O'Neil's boarding-house. Mrs.
O'Neil's boarding-house was not in the habit of receiving "new"
boarders. It was not a fashionable boarding-house, but was the
ordinary, cheap, dingy place with which every one who knows boarding-
houses is acquainted. That was before Mrs. O'Neil took up Hart". Now
the house was plastered from top to bottom with every conceivable color
and had been renamed "La Maison". The boarders were as various in their
characteristics as were the colors in Mrs. O'Neil's "art studio". There was
Mrs. Calvin, the lady who had lost a fortune in speculation, there was the
laboring young author, the actress, the old maid, and the book agent. Mrs.
O'Neil, herself, was the queen of the establishment. She was short, chubby,
and round. Tiny peering blue eyes looked out of a rather expressionless
face which was crowned with an immense, very blond wig. Ever since her
expedition into the world of art, she had developed a remarkable ruddy com-
plexion of the apple-cheeked variety. She knew the history of every one
of her boarders from childhood. She persisted in telling each one what
his future successes or misfortunes might be, and, although events usually
turned out opposite to her predictions, always declared in the most exasper-
ating voice, "I knew it! I knew it all the time l" Then she would nod her
head decisively to clinch her statement completely. Mystery was her realm
and gossip her delight.
Now, a new boarder had come to hear her fate from the tongue of Mrs.
O'Neil. She was a mere girl, this new boarder, but a self-willed,,determined
girl. She did not tell her history to the over-friendly Mrs. O'Neil. She held
herself aloof from every one. She merely said that she had come to the
city to make her way in the world. She had obtained a position as a
stenographer. The very fact that she did not divulge her secrets aroused
all the curiosity of the prying Mrs. O'Neil. Why she had come, was a
question that puzzled the land-lady of "La Maison".
Behind her calm, implacable exterior, this girl was smiling merrily to
herself. It amused her to watch the effect of her vague answers to every
futile attempt poor old Mrs. O'Neil made in trying to discover her history.
One thing was discovered. Anne Damon was receiving many letters from
Georgetown, and besides, although she had been at the house only two
weeks, she had received two packages from that place. Mrs. O'Neil "tact-
fully" tried to find out from whom the packages came and what they con-
tained g-all in vain. It was as Mrs. O'Neil told Mrs. Calvin in strictest
confidence, Cin fact she told every one in the house strictly in conlidencej
that it was "utterly impossible to break the girl's deep reserve."
"She is cold to every friendly advance. Something is wrong," and she
knowingly wagged her head. "These letters, Fm sure, did not come from
' PAGE SEVENTY-FIVE
one of the family, nor did the packages. There is something the girl is
trying to hide, and I, Mrs. O'Neil, am going to find it out. Of course
it really matters nothing to me, and I'm certainly not curious on my own
account, but for the sake of my boarders, I feel it my duty'to find out
something about this little creature."
It was a few days later that Mrs. O'Neil came bustling into Mrs. Calvin's
room, excitement written plainly on every feature. In her hand was a card
which she frantically waved in front of the astounded Mrs. Calvin, while
she gasped out her disquieting news.
"What do you suppose! Mrs. Calvin !"-and sh-e panted wildly to catch
her breath-"I've found the secret! Yes, here it is, even worse than I
expected. I knew it! I knew it was something like this! I was just going
into my studio today when this bit of paper attracted my attention." Here
she had to stop for breath. She never ceased to wave the card back and
forth frantically in front of Mrs. Calvin's face.
"Do you see this P" she continued. "See it ?" Mrs. Calvin certainly did see
it as it was being thrust directly beneath her nose. "Do you know what it
is? I couldn't help seeing the writing on such a card. Here, it says 5-
'Dearest Anne !'-"Dearest!"' Do you hear? "Just a word to tell you that I'll
be with you Saturday, and we'll run away somewhere for a great time,
Love, Billy !"--"Billy !" Do you hear? I'll find out about this "Billy"! VVhat
is my house coming to? Ch! I knew it! I knew it !" and without giving
poor Mrs. Calvin a chance to answer, she rushed hysterically out of the room.
That night, Mrs. O'Neil, having regained lier composure, went to Anne
with affected graciousness and returned the card.
"I accidentally discovered this at the door of the studio to-day, dearie",
she said. "I thought perhaps you might want it."
The excited, curious look in Mrs. O'Neil's eyes could not escape the
watchful girl. Quickly glancing at the card she understood, and, with a
mischievous twinkle in her eye, decided to play the game out. She took
the proffered card, summoned all her dramatic abilities and acted the part
of the nervous, defiant girl to perfection. She hastily concealed the card in
her hand, blushed and stammered.
"Yes, why-a-thank-you. It wasn't really of 'much importance. You
needn't have bothered."
Anne's actions confirmed Mrs. O'Neil's suspicions. Poor Mrs. O'Neil!
What a flurry she was in!
The next day she managed to sit next to Anne at the table. Very
tactfully and, as she thought, artfully hiding her real intention, she led the
conversation to the subject of families. She extolled first on the merits of
her brother, then on her cousin James, and finally ended by saying, "And have
you no brothers nor cousins, dearie ?"
"No," Anne truthfully replied, "I have three sisters, but no brothers. All
our boys were girls. I have no cousins at all. How pleasant it must be
to have so many relatives." And so the ,conversation drifted on to the
end of the meal. '
Mrs. O'Neil was by this time nearly eaten up with curiosity and excite-
ment. Confidentlally, she told Mrs. Calvin that she didn't believe the.child's
mother knew anything about the affair and said, "It will certainly be my duty
to inform her of the whole thing." Mrs. O'Neil lived for Saturday to arrive.
Saturday afternoon, Anne went to the train to meet her guest. She had
informed Mrs. O'Neil that she would probably not be back for dinner
that evening. About three o'clock, a taxi drove up in front of the "Maison",
and Anne, followed by a young girl about fifteen years of age, jumped
out. Anne knew only too well that the prying eyes of Mrs. O'Neil
were peering at her from behind the curtain at the parlor window. The two
girls ran lightly up the steps and entered the house. "Billy evidently did
not arrive,', thought Mrs. O'Neil. Accordingly, she was in the hall to meet
"Oh, Mrs. O'Neil I" exclaimed Anne,-"I want you to meet my sister Billy.
Billy, this is my land-lady about whom I wrote." Mrs. O'Neil opened her
mouth in wide astonishment. She fell back a few steps stunned by the blow.
"Is this Billy?" she gasped. At her expression and tragic voice Anne
nearly burst with suppressed laughter. Gripping her sister by the hand,
the two girls dashed madly up the stairs, leaving Mrs. O'Neil to recover
from the shock. She stood speechless for a while, then declared firmly to
herself, "I knew it. I knewlit all the time."
The blow had been heavy but it had the desired effect, Mrs. O'Neil no
longer inquired into the private interests of Anne. She steadfastly affirmed
to every one who referred to the incident, however, that she "Knew it, had
known it all the time."

To a Medieval City
Thou art a fairy city, builded by a sea of dreams,
The waves creep up and kiss thy encircling wall
Now, ev'n as they were wont long ages past
When nightly they rolled in with trumpet call.
NYe walk thy twisted streets and narrow, darkling lanes
In company with the ghosts of yester-year,
And round about thy romance-laden spires
Drift voices long since silenced, sweetly clear.
Thou, my fair city, builded by a sea of dreams,
When our feet leave thy quaint, aged-mellow ways,
VVill our voices wander vaguely through thy turret tops,
For other men to hear in far-off, future days?

Sketches From Steele's Tower
OVV fresh and green the grass round the Old Log Cabin is today!
Many years ago the Old Log Cabin had the pretentious name of
"Newcom Tavern," and was the only hotel in the settlement. It has
witnessed many changes, and, if given the power of speech, what wonderful
tales it could relate!
A burring noise comes from overhead, where two airplanes are performa-
ing all kinds of stunts. Round and round, up and down they go, turning to
the left and then to the right. Suddenly one appears to be beyond the control
of the pilot and, just as it seems that he might be dashed to the ground, the
plane is righted and sails smoothly away towards McCook's Field.
Clang, clang, clang, clang! A streak of bright red! The lire engines are
away to answer the alarm. As they clatter down the street there is quite a
Hutter, as automobiles and people dodge this way and that to clear the path.
Below, in the center of Main Street, is the monument erected in the year
1884-, as a memorial to the brave men who gave their lives that the Union
might endure. Sturdy and staunch stands the sentry at the top. I like the con-
ceit that he is keeping constant watch over our city. A
Here comes an automobile with a man, a woman, and two boys, all dressed
in Khaki. Using field glasses, I see camping paraphernalia strapped on the
sides of the car, and, dimly showing through the dust, on a pennant are the
words, "Portland, Oregon."
On the river a boat drifts idly along. The boy using the oars guides it
with as little stir of water as is possible. An old fisherman standing at one
end and leaning far over the edge of the boat is trawling. Here and there

what their success as Fishermen will be here in the center of a great city.
But a busy hum from below is borne upward, and, looking down,-I see
the boys and girls leaving for the day. Some saunter along talking and
laughing, while others hurry away,-to their homes, to work, to the library,
or to various places of amusement. Over the low hills to the west and along
the boulevards, the delicate green of spring is visible. The river flows
serenely below, while traffic goes steadily back and forth over the Main
Street bridge. '

AINING the crest of the hill, I stopped to view the scene before me.
So unexpected was the beauty and loveliness of the place that I was
spell-bound for the moment. There, nestled in the hills of soft green
pine, gleamed a tiny lake. Descending the slope to the water's edge, I found
a rustic pier. As I took a step forward, several small black lizards splashed
into the water. Immediately a series of ripples chased each other over its
bosom, where every detail of the surrounding landscape was reflected. In this
perfect mirror, dainty little pine-trees admired themselves in company with
drooping elders who dipped their trailing ends into the refreshing coolness.
So perfect was the reflection of the neighboring mountain that one marveled
at the clearness. Shadows and splotches of sunlight moved over secluded re-
treats formed by narrow fingers of land that jutted out into the water. Every
minute I expected some "Lady of the Lake" to glide into view from one of
them. No sharp rocks or crags marred the beauty of the picture refiected in
that liquid mirror. Soft bits of fleecy clouds floated l.ke fairy boats across
the blue of the water in silent beauty. The place was enchanting with its cool
pine-laden breeze that rose from the lake. So cool, peaceful, and quiet was
this spot that it was with reluctance that I rose to go. joe V. Colley, '22,
The giant orb of living gold,
Majestic, smiles on high,
The timid flower puts forth her head,
Rejoiced that Spring is nigh.
Beneath a coat of green, at first,
She keeps her grace concealed,
But as she gains in confidence,
New beauties are revealed.
But, hark, a distant warning sound,
A blinding Hash of light,
The startled Hower cowers low
In agony of fright.
A sudden, pelting dash of rain,
Which beats her to the ground,
And, in the morning, crushed and dead,
The little flower is found.
And thus are many lives begun,
And thus do many end,
Upon the weak, defenseless head,
Does Life her blows expend.
And so, Success cannot be called,
The harvest of a day, .
The only one who wins, is ,he
VVhom Life cannot dismay. Elizabeth Gilbert, '22
A Perfect Mirror
HIE air was still, nevertheless it had the characteristic crispness of
fresh mountain air. The sun shone in a sky as blue as the skies
of Italy. Relieving this intense blue, a few white, billowy clouds
were scattered here and there. Before me lay a tiny bay surrounded
by mountain peaks, some with their lofty tops entirely bare, others with
their jagged heads covered with snow.
These peaks seemed to rise into the
. - very heavens. Because of the clear at-
mosphere, the water, fed by springs and
melting snow, made a more perfect mir-
ror than one could imagineg its crystal
clearness was due to freedom from all
A lover of photography, I was held
spellbound by the beauty and enchant-
ment of the scene. There was a minute
reflection of every detail of the moun-
tains and clouds in the water. In fact
I could with difficulty distinguish where
the mountains stopped and the water began, for each tree and rock was
perfectly reflected in shape and color in the water. One of the promonotories,
known as Red Eagle, had a dark, brownish red hue. Around this rusty
red were pressed the billowy clouds

than in the heavens. just at the head
of the bay, was a great snow-blanketed
mountain with a majestic peak looking
as though it might truly reach the home
of the Gods. Around this almost com-
plete circle there were eleven peaks, re-
minding me of "A caravan that never
passes by, with the clouds lying on their
camel backs". I never expect to see a
more inspiring scene than those remote
mountains around a placid lake on that
perfect sunnner day.

Qld Historic Highways
T is generally believed that the mode of travelling of the first Indians was
by water. When they desired to journey by land, they used the paths
made by the buffalo when they changed their feeding grounds, or sought
a change of climate. Theufirst thoroughfares came to the white man's know-
ledge as buffalo "traces," and later, as "Indian trails." Kentucky, which had
no resident Indians, kept the word "trace" rather than "trail" An Indian trail
was just a narrow path through the forest. If two pack horses could pass
on it with safety, the trail was considered a wide one. The Indians never
improved their thoroughfares. If a tree fell, the trail either went over it or
around it. These trails were not only used by the pioneers to distribute popu-
lation, but became the course of our hrst roads. That these trails marked out
the paths of least resistance across the mountains, is proved by the fact that
they have been used by our modern great trunk railway lines.
The highways were the most important arteries of transportation before the
railroad. The development of the road, and the development of the wagon
went hand in hand. The pack horse was used on the trails. He could carry
a load of two hundred pounds. After the pack horse, came the huge two-
wheeled mountain cart. It was built so that it could go almost anywhere the
pack horse could go. Freight traffic began about 1785. The growing needs
of the population in the West developed the freighter. The Conestoga wagons
were immense, lumbering machines which resembled, somewhat, the prairie
schooners of a later date. These wagons were run by companies, much the
same as freight lines are run today. The coming of the stage coach ushered
in a new age in roadmaking.
The Iroquois Trail was one of the great routes of the pioneers. It followed
the valley of the Mohawk through New York, and was longer than any other
independent Indian thoroughfare. Of the three great eastern highways, it
was usedland known the least, but it lasted longer than either the National
or Wilderness Roads. It is the route of the great state-road of New York
from Lake Erie to the Hudson River.
The VVilderness Road was the path of many thousands of pioneers going
westward. In 1775 the Transylvania Company engaged Daniel Boone to mark
a road from Fort Watago, on a branch of the Holston, to what is now Louis-
ville, Kentucky, where its newly purchased lands lay. Boone marked a road
in the best passage through the wilderness. The road went through the
Cumberland Gap over the course of the "Virginia Warrior's Path," but at
some distance from the gap it left the Indian trail, and followed a buffalo-trace
to the desired destination. Messenger and mail service were carried on over
this road for many years. When the National Road was built, this road was
almost forgotten, but it had been used long enough to influence decidedly
the distribution of the population in the southern half of Ohio.
The National, or Cumberland Road, was the most famous highway of the
last century. For fifty years it meant more to the whole West than any rail-
road means to any-part of it today. It is difficult to realize by what a slender
thread the East and VVest were then united. The building of this road was
undoubtedly one of the factors that secured the West to the Union. It was
the only road built by Congress. It passed through northwestern Maryland
and southwestern Pennsylvania, following Nemacolin's Path to the Ohio
River. In Ohio it followed Zane's Trace. Beside the immigrants, there
was an established passenger and freight service using the road. There
were taverns at regular intervals along its entire length. It had been hoped
that the automobiles would revive these taverns and the old life along the
highway. The National Road meant less to each state it traversed after
leaving Pennsylvania, because the railroad was coming into use.
The Santa Fe Road was one of the two most famous roads from the Mis-
sissippi to the Pacific. It was said to be the best natural road in the world.
The starting point was at Independence, Missouri. The Indians made the
journey over this route hazardous. It became, and long remained, the highway
over which commerce and mail were moved to the Far West. Trade with
Mexico was also carried on over this trail. Although there is now a more
direct route for this trade, the old road will never be obliterated.
The'Oregon Trail was the other famous old road to the Pacific. It also
started at Independence, and for the first fifty miles, the two roads were
identical. Then they divided, one going northwest,-the other southwest.
It was used by the ox teams of the old settlers going to the Oregon country.
Today, these famous paths which led to empire are almost forgotten. The
era of these highways has been succeeded by the era of the railroad. Al-
thouh these roads were the mainstays of a civilization, their names have
almost passed from human recollection. Movements have been started in
various states to mark them in a fitting manner. Ezra Meeker made a trip
over the old Oregon trail to mark it. He travelled on to Washington, D. C.
driving his oxen, and on his way he passed through Dayton.
In a day when travel and transportation are comparatively easy, it is well
to be reminded that men of stalwart physique and courage, and women en-
dowed with an equal endurance, and great patience, came through the wil-
derness following the "trail," to open these lands for future generations.

Enter the Stars
H, HA!" said the star, as he winked his old eye, "I caught you
that time, didn't I?" What had he caught? Only this. One of
his little daughters was found flirting with the man in the moon.
"Now," said the father star, "you will have to be punished. Go right over
to the dipper and bring me a pail of water. Take care not to spill any, either,
for they've had plenty of rain down below, for awhile."
On hearing this, the little star's eyes filled with tears. She didn't want
to fetch any water. It was a long distance over there, the pail was heavy,
and she would probably strain her back. But, oh! finally her eye twinkled
and she grew brighter than ever. Soon, you could see her going way over
the dark sky-to where, do you suppose? Why, to the house of the dog-star
"Oh, please, kind sir," asked the little star, "won't you carry me on your
back to the dipper over yonder? I must fetch a pail of water for my father.
The pail will be heavy, and I shall probably strain my back."
"Of course," answered the dog star. "I'll carry you over," for he just
couldn't resist a pretty lady in distress. So, they got ready and soon, away
they skimmed, past the twinkling stars, and finally arrived at the home of
The little star then jumped off her benefactor's back, and proceeded to dip
out some water. But, alas! how unfortunate she was! While standing on
the edge of the dipper, what did she do but fall over. Alas, again! In the
bottom of the dipper was a hole. Down through this, the little star fell-
way down, down, down, all through the night, until finally, she reached the
earth, just at dawn. She was unconscious when she landed, but soon, the
bright monring sun awakened her.
"Oh, sad, sad me," sighed the little star, "just see what has happened!
How unfortunate I am !" and she wept, and wept, and wept, until suddenly,
she heard her father's voice. The little star looked up in surprise, but no
one could she see. Again she heard his voice. Again she looked up' and
saw no one-But ah! the little star was wise-How to account for his voice?
Only this,-her father owned a radio set! Through this he told her to
climb up on the next puff of wind and come back to the heavens. This

REES have always been the most human-like and the most com-
panionable of all inanimate objects. They are the only living links
between us and the remote past. The old trees are no longer numer-
ous and henceforth are more precious to us for the memories which cluster
around them. In the dark forest, in the light of lofty hills, they stand in
matchless dignity as exceptions. They are Patriarchs in the society of the
One of the most noted of these historic trees is "Abraham Oak" at Hebron.
It is claimed to be the tree that sheltered Abraham's tent and beneath
whose branches Abraham entertained the heavenly strangers. With this
tree we associate the Cedars of Lebanon mentioned in the Bible, or, as they
are called by the Arabs, "Cedars of the Lord". In the midst of this grove
is a circle of trees called by the natives "The Twelve Apostles," because of an
ancient tradition that our Savior and his diciples, while walking in this district,
left their staves standing in the ground and these staves sprouted into Cedar
Trees. Undoubtedly the very oldest tree in the world is a Bald Cypress at
Santa Maria, New Mexico. It is said to be over 6,000 years old. One
especially interesting tree is the "Charter Oak" of England, on Runnymede
Island, where King John signed the Magna Charta in the presence of the
barons. In the center of England is another famous tree beneath which
Cromwell took command of his army.
In our own country there are ancient trees intimately connected with
our colonial and national history. Many of these trees have been consecrated
by the presence of some illustrious person or by an auspicious event in our
national history. The famous Charter Oak in Connecticut was standing in
the height of its glory and was estimated to be 1,600 years old when Hooker
planted the seeds of a commonwealth there. One stormy night in August
1845, the old oak tree was prostrated, and now almost every particle of it is
in some pleasing form wrought by the hand of art and cherished as a
memento of a curious episode in our colonial history. In this tree was
hidden the Charter of Connecticut, when Andros, a petty tyrant under
James II, ruled for a short time in that colony.
An elm tree which is no longer standing but which lives in our memories
and is commemorated by a monument on its site, is Penn's Treaty Tree. Be-
neath the branches of this tree, Penn made a treaty with the Indians, not 3.
treaty for their lands, but one of peace and friendship. It is the only treaty be-
tween those nations which was never sworn to and which has never been
Many will remember reading of Peter Stuyvesant, the Dutch governor of
New Amsterdam, who had a silver leg and an attractive face. VVith all the
worries of his stormy rule as governor, he loved his home. After he married he
built a small house of yellow brick, laid out a garden, and planted in it
some choice pear trees from his native country. At length, however, Dutch
power in North America crumbled and New Amsterdam became New York
and Stuyvesant returned to his farm. Now, however, the farm and garden

lie beneath the brick and stone of city pavements and the only thing left is
one pear tree. Year by year it has blossomed, and year after year it has been
bereft of its branches until it has become little more than a venerable trunk.
It stands on the corner of Third Avenue and 14th Street, the oldest living
thing in the city of New York.
When the storm of the American revolution was brewing, the patriots
looked for a competent captain to lead them to absolute freedom and peace.
That commander was found in George VVashington. The army of Boston
was adopted as the army of the nation and NVashington formally assumed
command of it under the branches of a great Elm tree. The venerable tree
still stands in the midst of a busy city, a living representative of the forest
that covered the land when

find on the western slope of the Sierras of Cen-
and the Red VVoods. These trees are the surs
trees that grew thousands of years ago on this
continent. They are godlike among trees both for their size and length
of life. They tower 400 feet into the air and have lived for over 5000 years.
A good sized church in Santa Rosa, California enjoys the distinction of having
been constructed from a single Sequoia. Many people believe that they
are the greatest and the grandest, as well as the oldest living things, to which
in all the ages of the world God has given life.
VVhat finer tribute can be paid the man who has given his life in the great
cause, or to the man who came out of that struggle alive, than the planting
of a living tree in his honor. Much is being done throughout the country to
this end. Steele is planting a mile of memorial trees along the Dixie Highway.
Besides the memorial element in the act, it is a kind of reparation paid to nature
for the devastation of some of her fairest countrysides. It was learned in
the Great NVar that France's great forests were a more efficient barrier
against the Huns than any fortification that man could build.
Trees are the true monuments and living memorials God has provided to
hallow the holiest memories of every person and every race. The poet-soldier
Joyce Kilmer wrote what many people believe to be his best poem in praise
"Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree."

The Passing of the Home
SUBJECT, which has always been one of interest and which is being
much discussed today, is that of the Passing of the Home. A great
many people insist that the home is disappearing, but is it? The
serpent might have said that the home was disappearing when Adam and
Eve were driven from the Garden of Eden. But let us not go back that far.
Let us begin with Mrs. Noah, a little later on, when she took Noah on the
deck of the Ark and pointed out, perhaps, the disappearing homes. Then the
homes really were disappearing. Perhaps one of the children, little-pitch-
er like, overheard the remark and passed it on down through the generations
to the present day.
It is only people with mental indigestion who imagine that the home is
disappearing. VVhy, in a magazine dated 1859, I found an article stating that
the young ladies did not have the ideals of their mothers and grandmothers,
and, that the fashions, the promenade, and the ball-room were taking too
much of their time. As a result, the next generation would see the passing
away of the home. Again, in an article dated 1908, I found a heated dis-
cussion upon this subject. Some of the things that it stated were: there was
no financier who had not had moments of yearning for the simpler lifeg
priests said it was a lack of religious trendiof the times, the follies of the
rich had become the sins of the well-to-do, and on Sunday people stole away
from their homes like Arabs and played golf, tennis, or some other kindred
sport. If this is all true of former times and our homes still exist, why are
people so worried over it now?
Let me define home. Home is where one lives in content, privacy, and
comfort, either alone or with those with whom one has the greatest com-
munity of interest and the closest ties of affection. Certain aspects of the
old-fashioned homey-home may have passed, such as the coal-oil lamp placed
on the living-room table with mother on one side, darning, father on the
other, reading the paper, and Johnny and Mary sitting near, studying
geography or spelling. Ready-made clothing has done away with individual
spinning and a great deal of the family sewing. Our meats are cured for us:
our bread is baked for usg our kitchen labors are lightened by labor-saving
devices, the arts of home canning and preserving are in a fair way to be
totally done away with. But are not all these advancements in civilization?
Are not these aids to the housewife? VVhy should we expect civilization to
i IKXGIG ICIGIITY-Sl'lY1'IN
progress and yet have the home the same hard-to-work-in place? Men
purchase all manner of appliances for lightening their work, so why not
Amusements have increased a hundred-fold, and transportation, in the
form of the automobile, has made it easy for us to get quickly from one
place to another. Clubs and community meetings have multiplied enormous-
ly. We look at all the things that attract us away from home, and the
cheap quick means of travel and one is bound to see that the old idea of
home had to disappear. However, are our homes harmed by the number of
activities of our housewives? A mother gets up early in the morning to
send her children to school and her husband to the office, then she is free
to go to any of her many meetings or amusements. She has a tireless cooker
to cook the meal while she is away, so why should she stay home to attend
to it? One author has said that now-a-days the home is open only sa part
of the year, then milady goes with her daughters to Europe or some summer
resort. Is this true of many of our people? Perhaps a small part do
that, yet is it fair to judge the nation by a few? Again we hear that women
are too tired to be agreeable in the evenings when the men are homeg or
that they are too worn out to attend to the housework, or even incapable of
making a home. This is an injustice to the women of our country. NVhat
would happen if some morning all the women of Dayton stayed in bed?
Women have been freed from the burden of home. They have every labor-
saving device,-the vacuum sweeper, the electric iron, electric washers, the
tireless cooker, and many others. All these helps have proved beneficial,
as the average span of women's lives has been more than doubled since
Shakespeare's day, in both Europe and America. Education and advancement
does not make women shun marriage, but rather matrimony as a profession,-
as their sole vocation. If you think the homes are passing away, go through
any residential district of Dayton at dusk and peer through the windows and
see the many examples of home life presented there. In one home a woman
may be setting the table for the evening meal where her family is to gather
in a congenial homey fashion, in another there may be several little children
awaiting the coming of their father, and in still another, may be an old
gentleman and lady eating their meal alone, yet perfectly happy -in their
quiet and solitude. If the home were so rapidly disappearing as is said, there
would not be these outstanding examples of peace and happiness of home-life

The above picture portrays in a very small way some of the projects we
have been constructing in the Manual Training Department here in Steele
High School during the past year.
lt has been a most successful and profitable year for the students in this
department. llere, more than a hundred boys have been building Library
tables, Floor lamps, Bookcases, Victrola Cabinets, Dining-room tables, Cedar
Chests, Piano lienehes and Pedestals.
It has been our aim to develop the Educational thru the making of really
practical worth-while projects such as mentioned above.
A most interesting feature of the work in this department this year has
been the demand for building NVireless Outfits. Enthusiasm along this line
has been at a very hgh pitch. l think I can safely say, we have turned out
more than 50 line wireless cabinets this year.
In conclusion, may I say we have just completed two large Oak Hall Seats
to be used in Mr. Stetson's Office.

The Shakespeare Reading Circle
HE Shakespeare Reading Circle, under the auspices of the English
Department, has been greatly enjoyed by those who have had time
for the readings. One of the good features of the Circle is, that it
brings the teacher and student closer together. Not only the English teachers.
but those from other departments have taken part in our readings. XN'hen
we read "The Tempest," Mr. VYerthner pleased us by his delightful interpre-
tation of the "lJuke.', Could anyone have been as humorous as Mr. Stanton
in his portrayal of Petruchio in "The Taming of the Shrewv? Other plays
we have read are "The Comedy of Errors" and "Twelfth Night."
Our costumes and scenery have been of the crudest, but our imaginations
supplied the delinquencies. XYhen we read the "Comedy of Errors," the
readers wore small cards bearing the names of the characters they repre-
sented. ln "The Taming of the Shrew," Petruchio clattered up and down
the stage on a wooden horse, to the great amusement of audience and actors.
These stage devices were but secondary considerations, however, for our real
interest was centered in the reading of the "mighty line." During Mr. Stan-
ton's rendition of "Petruchio," one boy unconsciously slapped his knee and
with a chuckle remarked to the reader nearest him I-HSllZ1kCS1JCZll'C certainly
Those who have attended the meetings regularly have received true bene-

of the ages, we feel that we have succeeded in the object for which the society

State and MidfWestern Football
Champions, 1921 ,
OR the three seasons past, 1919, 1920, and 1921, Steele has been recog-
nized and given credit, for having the best high-school football team in
Ohio. If there had been any doubt as to her right in past seasons, all
doubt was removed by the victories achieved over such a team as W'aite.
Stee1e's 14 to 0 defeat of VVaite, and Waite's 42 to O defeat of Scott, which
practically played East Tech of Cleveland a tie game, removed all doubt as
to the Ohio Championship.
Because of Steele's decisive victories over the Chicago Englewood team,
Wabash Ind., Indianapolis Tech, and Waite fthe latter had defeated the
Champions of Detroit, Michigan, also Champions of Pennsylvania and Mas-
sachnsettsD, the variouspapers conceded the extra honor of Midwestern
Champions to Steele. .
Steele played a post season game in the far south land, Dec. 10th at
jacksonville, Fla. Steele was defeated 21 to 0, but the trip resultedgin a
wonderful educational benefit. Duval will play Steele at Dayton next Fall
on Nov. 4th, '
The boys who played best for Steeleswould be difficult to pick. Capt.
Dobeleit was the team's mainstay in the backheld, along with Sharkey, Freed,
Smiley, Buchanan, and Siebert. The ends were led a lnerrygclip by Hoerner,
who was a wonder on offense and defense,-while Becker, Faust, Zimmerman,
VVright, and Eichmeyer were a stone wall on defense, and clever interferers

As has been the case for several seasons, Steele pried off the lid of her
1921-1922 basketball schedule at a very late date. In the first game, Steele
displayed some real basketball which gave promise of developing into even
better material. ln the games that followed, there was not a single loyal
heart disappointed. Several games were won by such close margins that not
till the final whistle sounded was either team the victor. The passwork,
the dribbling.. and the shooting displayed in that now famous Steele-Detroit
Central game will long be remembered. The Steele combination presented
that night has never been excelled.
The Steele team was practically a green team this year. Captain Seibert.
the best guard in the state, was a defensive and offensive man of rare ability.
Faust and Buchanan, alternating as his running mate, possessed unusual
ability for high school men. Between Mankat and Sharkey the tip off position
never lacked a real battler. Harlowe and Hoerner, who occupied the forward
positions, were recognized by state officials as clever running mates.
Despite the late start obtained, Steele was victorious in eleven of the
thirteen games scheduled. This record is surpassed by few in the state and
is one of which any school might well be proud.

The prospect for another champion baseball team is very bright indeed this
season. Steele displayed mid-season form in the first two games of the year,
winning by exceedingly large scores. Such excellent form displayed so early
in the season, leaves no doubt in the minds of faithful followers, that the
Steele combination possesses unusual ability for high school men.
Seibert is again performing behind the plate with the same excellent. form
as before. Frank, a young sophomore candidate, is also doing well and will
make a splendid man for next year. The pitching ability of Eyer, Fields, and
Faust has caused much discussion among enthusiastic Steele fans.
The infield this year looks better than ever before. Haas at third and
Buchanan at short are causing quite a lot of comment. Captain Hoerner is
agaitpcevering second with the same stellar work as before. Fullweiler,
playing first, is another real ball player. ,
Thetputfield is' cggzered by well-drilled men with speed and strong arms.
Leibehdeifer, Harlowjylgunlevy, and Reno are all men of long experience.
With the ability balrezdy displayed, coupled with determined effort, Steele
ought to retain her' Cityiifhampionship Title again this year.

llli 1922 liasketball honors were captured by the Senior girls when they
emerged victorious from the Senior-Sophomore contest. The losing team
displayed good opposition but the well-directed playing and efficient team-
work of the Senior team won them the game. Lilah Russell was the
popular choice for captain of the Seniors while Norma Schaeffer was the
leader of the younger squad. The final score was 18-1. This team also carried
off the Girl's Championship in the 1921 season. They deserve a great deal of
credit for the consistent hard work and practice that enabled them to out-play
their opponents and carry off the laurels for the Class of '22.
XYith a score of 9-4, the Sophs won second place in the game with the juniors,
captained by Maurine Smith. The participants in this game all showed pluck and
ability and, with a little more training, they should stage some interesting
games in the future. There is good material at Parker now for a lively
Sophomore team for next year. NVith more hearty co-operation from the
student body, the coming season should be a very successful one.
The following are members of the League teams :-
Seniors-Russell, Flick, Law, VVilken, Hansen, Kreager, Trace, Dauskart.
Lakin, and Fogle.
juniors-Smith. Kling, Mendenhall, Harris, Duncan, D. johnson, L. Johnson.

Sophmimores-Schaeffer, Elliott Gage, liaker, Sauer, Schumacker, Crawford.

Track events started the last week in April. Most of the records made in
previous years have been met and many of them have been broken. A spirit of
enthusiasm and rivalry is noticeable among the girls when the regular gym work
is dropped and the remainder of the year is spent jumping and running. The
records made are :--

The Mysteries of 16-A
Then the trembling, fearful seniors
Learned the darkest of all studies.
Learned its terms and all its secrets:
To lift a boy off terra firma
VVith but one small cup of water
Till he ascends a goodly distance,
Right into the air arises.
Next they learned things yet more wondrous
Why the egg ne'er on its end stands,
Why the tower of Pisa leans so,
How to balance in the street car.
Then they met the mighty lever,
Till they found with shouts triumphant
How to raise the whole school building
VVith but one tap of the Finger.
Then their gentle gu.de and teacher
Helped them through bewildering mazes
Of the world's dark information:
How they make Kentucky Moonshine,
How to distil Lily Water.
Then their wise all-knowing teacher
Turned into a necromancer,
Master of the black art surely.
VVhen he rubbed a rod with flannel,
Lo, behold! He waved it round him,-
Objects started from their places,
And he fastened to the blackboard
VVithout aid of paste or stickers
That clay's absence sheet, and strangely,
There it stayed for fifteen minutes.
Next they learned a curious language
All of volts and ohms and amperesg
Best methods of electrocution
In the bathroom or the cellar.
And they learned, too, how to charm all
Of the neighbors with the cornet,
VVith weird sounds from pipes and catgut.
How to blow the horn with credit,
How to make it blare and bellow.
Last of all with pins and mirrors,
Lenses, light, and Rontgen rays, they
Had a long and mighty tussle,
Till, when June the month of roses,
In its splendor bright arrived,
l K I 0X1 HI XITIKI D ANI! SEVENTY
These deep mysteries they'd fathomed,
And were ready to go forth, now
Out into the great world, eager
To build bridges that will tumble,
Concert halls that loudly echo.
Thus these youthful buds of promise
Learned of their great wise instructor
All the secrets of deep Physics,
In the happy hours at Steele.

The Pretzel Man
Much has been said of histories, prophecies and stories, but very little has
been said about one of the most important persons connected with Steele-the
pretzel man. His figure as he stands with his little cart at the north entrance
of the building, is familiar to every Steele student. The first question that a
student asks after hnishing his lunch is,-"Is the pretzel man here, today?"
The answer is nearly always in the affirmative. The only times he is absent
are the extremely cold and rainy days. The chief reason for the student's joy,
when the pretzel man is here, is that his pretzels a1'e the best in town, always
fresh and mustard furnished, too. What would we do without our pretzel
He belongs to us only:
He belongs to dear old Steele,
Not to Stivers or to Parker.
Don't you think that you should feel
Proud to have la pretzel man
Come up here each day
just to bring you pretzels
For a mere two-penny pay?

' ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-SEVEN
Theimost phenomenal freaks in captivity are on exhibit at Steele High
School, now. june 15 will be your last chance to see them. Steele boasts
the most magnificent, marvelous, and mystifying menagerie in existence.
"Ladies and gentlemen", cry the barkers, Verl Perrine and Louis Poock,
"Step right this way and see Helen Kreager and Bill Lowrey, the most
miraculous midgets ever brought from the wilds of the tropics,-diminutive
in stature, but able to dance, sing, and chew chewing gum. See the Cyclopean
giant and giantess, Leroy Martindale and Helen Claggett, seven feet ten in
their stocking feet. Don't miss the famous fat lady, Marian Rothaar and the
skinny skeleton, Ethel Urban. The skeleton eats anything, straight ahead
for fourteen hours a day, while the keepers feed the fat lady a thimbleful of
hot milk twice a day."
From within the next tent come the stentorian tones of the ringmaster,
Sam Lebensburger. He cracks his whip and the eminent' equestrienne, Kay
Hahn, dashes by on a sleek, shining, snow-white steed, tastefully attired in
"Don't crowd. Step lively now. Everybody see the snake charmer, Roberta
Flory, tame the sibilant serpents. Gertrude Bucher, the human fly, will give
a daring, death-defying dance on the terrifying tightrope, swung in mid-air.
Great attraction! Come and see the monkeys, Carl Brown and David Lange.
If anybody can eat more peanuts than the monkeys, he will be awarded by
a free ticket to see Emmett Funsten, the strong man, lift great loads. Step
up and feel his muscle, ladies and gentlemen. Don't fail to see the clowns,
Happy Ellis and Harold Dunham,-merry, mischievous, mirth-provoking!
In her collection of fabulous freaks, Steele excels because of the variety of
the oddities she can present. The barkers preside over the freak tent, too.
"Ladies and gentlemen! Don't go home without seeing the world-renowned
Silent Lady, who hasn't spoken for three years, and has probably lost the
power of speech. Students of the subject believe that her name is Betty
Gilbert, but, since she cannot talk, they can never be certain. Now step over
and see Ethel Groth, the two-headed woman. Don't imagine, however, that
she is two-faced. Oh, nog she needs two heads to hold her wisdom. Of
course you must see the only living Siamese Twins-Virginia Kerr and
Margaret Kepler. Inseparable as Damon and Pythias!"
"Ladies, keep your distance! Gents, advance and see Carl Boese, the
cannibal. At each meal, he breaks the hearts of three beautiful young
damsels, and eats them! If the children aren't afraid, show them the cages of
Virginia Bear and Eugene Cetone, the wild man and woman! So rough that
they need a new cage every two weeks! Big, bloodthirsty barbarians !"
If you like the class of '22 as the sleight-of-hand performers, and the
large collection of white elephants which compose the show, bring your
friends to next year's performance, which will be even more unusual.
