Avon Lake .
Avon Lake was for many years a part of Avon Township. The advent
of the automobile and the building of the Lake road from Cleveland to
Lorain, together with the splendid beaches along the shore of Lake Erie
made this section a most desirable residence section. People began to
come. Allotments were laid out and in a few years the Lake Shore began
to take on the aspects of village life. The people were progressive and
forward-looking. Finally, the nothern portion of Avon Township was in-
corporated into a village to be called Avon Lake. This territory supported
three one-room schools and one two-room school. By 1920 these schools
were filled to overflowing-more room was needed. The people of Avon
Lake were desirious that their schools should keep pace with the times.
Early in that year the board of education began working upon the propo-
sition of a centralized school and in August, 1921, submitted the proposi-
tion to the voters. It was approved by a good majority. The board im-
mediately began the construction of a modern, fire-proof building on a
fine site of several acres. In September, 1922, while the new building was
under construction the first beginnings were made in organizing a high
school. Mr. Donald Sinclair was the first principal.
The new building, costing with its site and equipment, approximately
35140,000, was completed and occupied in September, 1923. The standards
of the school are high, its patrons are loyal and its teachers exceptionally
well qualified for their work.
The oldest records we have of the Avon public schools are dated April
18, 1853, with ten school districts. At this time Avon and Avon Lake
were one township. Some of the buildings were of frame, but were re-
placed by brick ones later on. The first class was graduated in 1906, when
Avon had a 3rd grade high school. Mr. N. L. Eaton was the first princi-
pal. All the pupils are now housed in one building, which was erected
in 1924 at a cost of S110,000. The 1925 class is the largest class to grad-
uate and numbers eight students.
The Avon public schools rank high in school standards. All the high
school teachers are college graduates and three hold life certificates The
courses of study compare favorably with those of any other first grade
school in the state An Avon student Archie Chester 'won the North-
eastern Ohio championship in Oratory at Kent in 1923 lhe school was
given a first grade charter bv the state two years ago
The chief event of the present school year came the last day of the
first semester when school mos ed from the two old buildings into the fine
new structure It inaugurated a fine new life for Avon children teachers
and community 'lhe Senior class and Dramatic club took inspiration ,nd
bought a beautiful curtain for the stage and the athletic association
bought apparatus and equipment for the gymnasium and playground

in A child asked to write on the subject "The Manners and Customs of
S' I India," wrote as follows: "They ain't got no manners and they don't wear lgfl
1 no customs." We might dispose of the history of the Amherst school build- lgi
"4 ing in as brief a way. The first building erected upon the present site was
if destroyed by fire. A second building built of stone, was also devoured by
flames. A new stone building was immediately begun and was completed
in 1908. This building is an excellent one of the type common at that 'il
,Q period. While it was a modern school plant it did not provide all the
Q facilities for the modern school curricula. After much planning we de- I
if cided to build an addition to the building erected in 1908 rather than a A
separate plant. The building pictured here shows the present school plant U1
T 1 containing 30 rooms, including a gym, manual training, domestic science,
,ff art and music rooms. All of these departments are available for all the lil
children--a condition which would not have been true had the new build- U'
ing been erected as a separate plant.
We are working under a plan similar to that used in Gary, Indiana,
which enables us to offer the "special activities" at no increase in cost. if
We have enrolled 830 pupils and find there is room for growth.

' South Amherst I '
W Back of South Amherst's present excellent educational system is an in-
ill teresting history of expansion from humble beginnings. The first school
house was a two-story frame structure erected on the lot just east of the
' Congregational church. Shakespeare Boynton was one of the first teachers gg
in this school. In 1887 this building was moved to the corner at Main and
Lake Streets and is now occupied by the Atlantic and Pacific store. On lil
the old site was erected a one-story building of sandstone. In 1896 an
additional room was built on the rear of this building for grades 5-8.
p This was known throughout the community as the "high school." In 1891
,A another stone building was erected at Wyatt's corners.
4-l In 1910 a large plot of ground was purchased from Thomas Swan lil
in and a substantial eight room sandstone structure was constructed at a
cost of 325,000 In 1920 the Village of South Amherst was incorporated it
213' and the South Amherst Village School District was the result.
In 1922 an addition to the central building was completed at a cost
E of 370,000.00 It was constructed of sandstone quarried in the village. vi
.ti The new school plant is one of which the people of South Amherst may lp Q?
be justly proud, as it answers the demands of the modern school adrnir- I
ably. V '

The first school building in Camden Township was made of logs and erected in 1833. Is was used for all community activities as well as for IV
' school purposes. Miss Laura Allen was the first teacher, receiving 75 ,,
cents a week for her service.
l, Following this three frame buildings were erected and later six brick
gl buildings, which made up the educational facilities of the township, from
l the building standpoint, until the present structure was completed. This ,lf
4 building was dedicated in the fall of 1924, though it was used during the '75
later part of the 1923-24 school year. It has every convenience of the
1 best rural schools of the state, being equipped with manual training and If
domestic science departments, a combination auditorium and gym and an
approved library. One hundred and eighty students from all parts of the
township find their way to this building each morning by foot, automobile, 5
school wagon or bus. Including the music department there are 8 teachers. l 5
With this group of students properly classified and the faculty made up -
of teachers who have specialized along certain lines, it has been possible
not only to raise the general standard of the school but to take first
school prize at the county fair and to hold the county championship in
basketball for two years. ,
This building belongs to the people of the community and is used by ii
them for all community purposes. l
li The Belden School Building is located in Grafton Township at the ii
1 center. It is a modern two-story brick structure and is up-to-date in every ,,
particular. On the main floor are the classrooms of the grades-large, l
airy and well lighted. The rooms on the second floor are used for junior l
and senior high school work. The combination auditorium and gymnasium l
is one of the best in the county. With its large fioor and high ceiling it
makes an ideal room for basketball and other indoor sports. It has a li
stage large enough to accommodate any ordinary school play or operetta. li
The sub-basement contains the dressing rooms and showers, toilets, g
boiler rooms and in addition laboratories for domestic science and manual
training. There is also a physics and chemistry laboratory, library, rest U
room and office. In addition to being modern in construction, the building E'
is modern in all its appointments. The building was first occupied in the fall of 1923, just 70 years
after the establishment of the first select school in the village in 1853. P

Grafton Township, of which Grafton is the only town, was incor- Ilfgz porated by the 'Commissioners of Medina County on July 25, 1818. The
Hrst school was taught in this same year by Miss Mary Sibley in a log 1'
li' school house. The first school house was a frame building which now
L serves as a residence. The first brick school building consisted of two ,L '
it rooms, four other rooms were added in 1892 and this, with a frame annex, l' A
1 constitutes the buildings which house our present school system. One -,ff
member of the board of education has served for 20 years. We have an H5
efficient student council, complete class organizations, orchestra and three tj 1'
honor societies. The student council was one of the first organized in the T
,' county and it backsi the staff of the school paper-The Purple and Gold.
51, The orchestra has a student leader and is always ready to respond when W
33 called upon.
5 The churches, business people, parent-teacher association and the en- If
L tire community are the real backers of all school activities and always U
respond whenever given an opportunity.

Great changes have taken place in the organization of the LaGrange '9 if
schools since their beginning approximately 100 years ago. Within the
nr memory of living graduates there were two small buildings, one of which J
2225 was located on the present site, the other near the site of the Adventist
Church. The first class to be graduated from the high school consisted of ia
Messrs. W. H. Hubbard, Porter Lincoln, Avery Wilcox and H. A. Lazelle. 1
1 3 They received their diplomas in 1881. The first superintendent of schools
3 f was Geo. Ryan. A remarkable example of devotion to the service of the il
is schools was that of Miss Ida Hubbard who taught in LaGrange Township i
for a period of 40 years. T
The first part of the resent structure was built in 1891. This satis- M
fied the demands of the cclfmmunity until 1915 when centralization of all 1
gill the schools of the township required larger accomodation. Ohio's high 'Q
it standard of compulsory school attendance, a slight increase in population
fl, and a broadening of the school curriculum again called for an addition to xg
M , the sclfool plant. Consequently in 1924 a splendid addition consisting of a T'
55, combination auditorium and gym, an office and two large class rooms were ,ij
W added. The school plant today is one which the citizens of the community TJ
are justly proud to own.
p The LaGrange schools are largely indebted to the loyal and enterpris-
,iii ing members of the boards of education who have been leaders in the pro- Q
up gress -which has helped to bring the school to the splendid position it now p
liz! occupies. p

'l'he rather recent date 09225 of centralization of our township
might lead one at a superficial glance to suppose that there was a failure -
to appreciate the value of education. This, however, is not true. In fact, -
in 1914 the township approved bonds to building an adequate home for our
schools. Through the advent of the World War the project was dropped .
, and not resumed until 1921. Due to the increased cost of labor and ma- ,
terial, building plans had to be modified and additional bonds issued. The
building as you can see, is a one-story edifice. It has four recitation rooms,
if an office, a rest room, a gymnasium, lavatories and two store rooms. The ll
class rooms are extremely pleasant and very adequately furnished. The
1 capacity of the building is about 180 and it was designed for the grades.
1 Realizing the crying need for a high school in our community the for-
ward looking board of education redecorated and rearranged the old
building for high school use. With the change to a first grade school and
on increase in high school enrollment the board was confronted with the
problem of adequately housing it. To take care of this, two commodius
recitation rooms were added to the grade building. -
Miss Martin, teacher of Latin in the high school informs us that she 'gl
began teaching in Columbia Township in 1890 and received the remark- .5
able remuneration of S22 a month, adding however that she had to pay
only S2 for board and room. V
This is the home of the Henrietta Centralized School. It is a one- story structure and houses the elementary grades and junior and senior I
gi high school. It was erected at a cost of 365,000 and occupied in 1923 for Q
ill the first time. A beautiful, Wide lawn already surrounds the building. A
IH, barberry hedge fringes the lawn. Extensive plans for planting will further I
beautify the grounds. 5
gill. The high school received its first grade charter in 1923 and grad- i
Ill uated its first class of six members May 27, 1924. Three out of the six E
!3 graduates are attending institutions of higher learning. 5
ig, A list of Henrietta boys and girls who have attained eminence since
5 fl leavingtheir old home would necessarily include Hubert "Dutch" Leonard, 1
'gi world-famed baseball pitcher. An aunt, Miss Jessie Leonard, is often
W spoken of as "the teacher beloved by all, commanding obedience with a y
I single glance". Ruth Haynes Cook of Oberlin is perhaps the Henrietta '
teacher oldest in years. Ezra and Ernest Baumann are missionaries in y
South America. Albert Bauman is a prominent Chicago minister. Ella 5
Dudley spent several years of her life as a teacher in South Africa. Sarah 1
Bell Saunders, a former teacher, has labored as a missionary in the Congo Free State for the past 25 years. Dr. Stowell Dudley took part in the 3
relief work among the refugees in Turkey during the late war. "
I Miss Eliza Thomas, sister of Mrs. H. A. Coates, taught the Hill school
1n a red frame school in 1885 and in deference to her experience her salary
was raised to 32.50 a week. -

Brookside j L
-- Brookside Junior High School takes the place of five one-room brick p F
buildings which served the people east of Black River in the incorporated y 1
village of Sheffield Lake. The buildings displaced were models of archi- 1
tecture which speak Well of the enterprise of the early settlers.
In 1921 a campaign for better schools was started by Elmer Cotton. M,
president of the board of education, W. J. Boyd, clerk, Harry Root, and
Harry Stoughton. They were ably aided by E. C. Seale, County Superin- sl,
tendent and J. L. White, then principal at Vincent.
A vote on a bond issue for S180,000 was carried in the fall of 1921,
and the three buildings of Vincent, Highland and Brookside built. Brook-
side was not occupied until the fall of 1923. 555
The building ,which is of the one-story type, occupies a site of 5 acres lil!
on the north bank of French Creek, overlooking its beautiful valley, and Ill
combines rural beauty with city conveniences, such as electric lights and lj
The building originally had six rooms and a combination auditorium 'U
and gymnasium. It was wrecked by the tornado of June 28, 1924, but was
immediately rebuilt, at which time three classrooms and a room for man-
ual training and domestic science were added.
The junior high school was organized in 1923, with 75 pupils. It also L
enrolls 40 junior high school pupils from Vincent. The first graduating 'l
class numbered 16. The school now has a total enrollment of 228 and is
handled by a very efficient corps of teachers.
During the year 1911 a movement was started for the building of a
school at Stop 7, which is located in the extreme southern portion of
Sheffield Township. The three men who fostered the movement were Mr.
Wilford, Mr. Eschtruth and Mr. Stoughton. They appealed to the board
of education many times and finally the board consented to the project.
The result was that a one-room building was completed and ready for ' l
occupancy for the school year of 1912-1913.
Due to the rapid growth of the community, in 1917 it was necessary -
to enlarge the building by the addition of two rooms, making Vincent
a three-room building. In 1922 Sheiiield centralized the schools of the sig
Township. Vincent, as a result of the centralization, was again enlarged all
by the addition of two rooms, sacrificing a third room for a modern, up- 5
to-date auditorium. At present it is a strictly modern, five-room building of the one-
story type. It presents a very neat and attractive appearance and lends
much to the community. 1

The schools of Brighton have been keeping well abreast with the
times. When the outside world demanded only the three R's, that is what
was taught, and the instruction was ably given in the one-room schools.
But there came a time when the one-room schools could not furnish all that
was needed and desired to match that offered elsewhere. So in the year
1909, the people of the township decided to centralize aand bring the
children together where not only could the elementary subjects be better
taught, but also a secondary education might be provided. A second grade
charter for the high school was secured in 1909. This has since been raised
to a first grade.
In 1923 the people of Brighton erected a modern, Well-equipped school
building at a cost of S80,000. This meets not only the needs of the com-
munity but also accommodates 25 tuition pupils.
Myron T. Herrick, Ambassador to France, taught in Brighton in the
days of his youth. A. W. Shields, now Superintendent of the Wellington
school taught seven years in Brighton. Hattie Lang also served the com-
munity for a long period of time.
The people of Brighton have always exhibited a remarkable spirit of
cooperation toward the school and aided in the development of the youth
of the township.
Highland Junior High School is a one-story, red, brick building located
on the main highway a quarter of a mile south of Lorain city, in Sheflield
Lake Village. It was completed during the summer of 1923, and replaces
a three-room frame structure. There are six standard class rooms, two
rest rooms, an office and an auditorium ample in every respect.
On account of the splendid combination gymnasium and auditorium,
the school building has become a real community center. It is used four
or five evenings every week throughout the athletic season and serves
as a meeting place for Sunday School classes on the Sabbath.
Our patrons have an interest in the affairs of the school, as is mani-
fested by their cooperation in various enterprises undertaken to beautify
and equip the building. Among the improvements have been the erection
of playground equipment, the purchase of a stage curtain and equipment,
a piano, dishes and silverware and chairs for the auditorium. Plans are
now being made to beautify the school yard by the planting of shrubbery?
Our motto is "Nothing less than the best."

Mr. A. Shadden, an eighty-three year old resident still living in this
community, attended school in a log school house which was probably the
first school house in this community. The second school was a one-room
frame building on the present site. The next was a one-room brick also
on the same grounds. The first two rooms of the present building were
built in 1914 and in 1921 an annex of two rooms was added.
Miss Hubbell, who was the first principal, taught here for five years.
Miss Schlessman, the primary teacher, also taught for uve years. Mrs.
Ethel DeVore is now completing her sixth year as teacher in the 5th and
6th grades. This is the longest period taught by any one teacher. The
largest number to graduate from the eighth grade was 14 in 1924, Linder
the principalship of Mrs. Ethel Patterson.
The Parent-Teacher Assocation is an important factor in the life of
the community and has a membership of over hundred. They have held
very interesting and profitable meetings during the years and have made
several improvements to the school grounds and building. The most im-
portant of which was the installation of electric lights. This was a splen-
did addition and the people of the community loyally responded in financ-
ing this undertaking.
' Lake Avenue
The first school in this district was a one-room building, but as the
enrollment increased another one-room frame building Was moved near
the old brick structure. The present building, which is a two-story struc-
ture containing four rooms and a large basement used for manual training
purposes, was erected in 1909.
The school has an active Parent-Teacher Association which has done
much for the improvement of the school. They have provided playground
equipment and the manual training boys have erected an outdoor basket-
ball court and also a movable stage. There is an active alumni
association composed of former graduates of the school.
The first superintendent of the school was W. N. Parks and the first
principal was Miss Hulda Mason. Mrs. Edward Cotton and Mrs. Clayton
Standen are two teachers who served the school and community faithfully
for a long period of years.
Graduates of the school who have attained in their line of endeavor
are Attorney Frank Wilford, Rev. Delbert Palmer and Miss Lillian Sears,
Dean of Girls of Lakewood, Ohio.

Browhelm Township centralized building was made possible by de-
grees and not by a single bound, as often occurs. In the beginning eight
separate schools operated in the township, with a high school located in
a central position. The first school moved into the central one in 1915.
Two years later the northern part of our township went over to the Ver-
milion school and in 1917 another school came into the central school.
However, this same year a vote on the total centralization of the schools
lost. Again in 1919 by a majority of 5 votes centralization failed to
carry, but not despairing, it was tried again in 1921 and passed.
The old building was remodeled and an up-to-date addition added cost-
ing 3S40,000. Rooms were provided for a first grade high school and a
charter granted on Dec. 21, 1921. The building has a first class gym
and auditorium which is annually the scene of many exciting athletic
contests, plays, operettas, parties and a complete lyceum course, as well
as other community meetings. It is used about 15 or 20 evenings each
month of the winter.
Brownhelm captured the basketball championship in Class B in 1925
and second place in the volley ball tournament.
Within the past twro years courses in Vocations, Chemistry, Domestic
Science, Mechanical Drawing and Music have been added to the curri-
culum. These with other standard subjects forms as progressive and well
rounded course of study as is often found in much larger schools.
The schools of Huntington Township vsere centralized in 1911 being
the second township in Lorain County to make this advance in educational
advantages The building was erected at a cost of about S12 000 and
provides comfortable and pleasant opportunities for the boys and girls
of our township in their training through the elementary grades Its
location in a beautiful little park at the center of the township makes
it easily accessible to all and lt is geographically as well as socially a
center of educational interest The building contains four well ventilated
rooms with sufficient light and a local lighting system for evening enter
tainments and social gatherings
The school does not provide 111011 school training because of inadequate
rooms and equipment but the pupils after finishing the eight grades are
transported to Sullivan Wellington and Brighton for high schoool work
The early training of many who have gone into professional work
reflects credit upon the educational spirit of our centralized school system.,

Q, The first Ridgeville school was organized about 1812. Miss Lydia Q.
pf Terrell was the first teacher and one log building took care of all the if
school children in the township. More such buildings were added through- gi
ll I out the township as the population increased. Frame buildings replaced if 3
5 , some of the log buildings as time went on. Commencing in the 1860's
l 1 these buildings were gradually replaced with larger brick buildings. Q,
lr I Ridgeville is on the main highway between Elyria and Cleveland. Its ff'
'gg citizens have always kept abreast of the times. When the little red school 5,

1 senior high school and a part of the elementary grades while the other d, I
l I located at Fields, houses the remainder of the elementary grades. Mr. F
Geo. E. Sidle has the honor of being the first principal of the Ridgeville , 4
2' schools, assisted by Mrs. Ethelyne S. Stocks, principal at Fields. To Miss 1 '

ll-iii In 1820, two years after the first settlers came to Wellington, Miss
' Caroline Wilcox opened a school in the home of a neighbor. After a few it l
' years a log school house was built and she continued to teach summers if
in that building, for there was no school in the winter. In 1849 a private ll
1 school of higher grade was opened, which later became a part of the pub- lil
lic school system. For several years there were three small school build- lii
ings situated indifferent parts of the town but in the years 1867-69 a
large central high school was erected upon the site of the present one.
This seemed adequate until 1918 when the schools were centralized and a Eg
l new building erected in front of the old one. 375
lg I The agricultural department was established under the Smith-Hughes .
law and its influence extends much farther than the school itself. The ,il
home economics class serves hot lunches during the winter months. A til
ll school paper has been issued since 1917 and since 1921 an annual. li,
311 Wellington has a most loyal alumni association and in 1921, in mem- , A
'ti ory of R. H. Kinnison, a former superintendent, an observatory with a in

U, memorial fund. 3

Summary of Architecture
In providing modern schools for Lorain County, the boards of edu-
cation have had in mind that the buildings, grounds and equipment should
be adequate to not only the immediate needs of the schools but should be so
planned that they will be suited to the needs of the future.
Practically all our centralized schools are located on sites of five acres
or more. This makes possible a large space for lawn, trees and shrub-
bery, as well as adequate space for playground apparatus for the little
folks and an athletic field for the high school. Much progress has al-
ready been made in beautifying the school grounds and improving the
facilities for play.
Another characteristic of Lorain County's schools is its auditoriums
and gymnasiums. Every school which has been erected within the past
five years has provided these rooms and the old buildings have in most
cases added them. The combination type of auditorium and gymnasium is
in universal use in the county. This is a large room usually 40x60 feet of
level floor space. This makes it adapted to the purposes of a gymnasium.
However, when a stage is added, and in some cases a balcony, and it is
seated with comfortable folding chairs, it serves the purpose of an audi-
torium in splendid fashion.
All buildings have been erected in strict conformity to the state
building code. This means proper light, ventilation, heat, fire protection,
sanitary provisions and general construction. Every building is modern
in every respect. Practically all are heated by steam and ventilated by a
motor driven fan. Every building is provided with a system of electric
Another feature of our buildings is that in practically every case pro-
vision is made to enlarge the building to take care of future growth with-
out interferring with the present structure.
It might have been possible to lessen the cost of construction by the
use of cheaper material or by the installation of cheaper equipment.
The board of education and the people of each community are to be
congratulated that they have builded well and permanently.

ELLIS C. SEALE, A.B., A.M.,
'VS County Superintendent Lt

Our County Superintendent
Lorain County is exceedingly fortunate in having at the head of its .
schools, Ellis C. Seale, as County Superintendent. He is in the largest li '
sense of these words, teacher, leader, counselor and friend. Under his ,
direction Lorain County schools have advanced to a position among the '
foremost counties of the State of Ohio. 3
Mr. Seale's qualifications and previous training have admirably fitted if
him for his present position. I-Ie was reared in the rural districts of Ken- EQ f
tucky, coming up through the grades and high school and later graduating 5
at Miami University. His major interest has always been in rural edu- fi
cation. As teacher in Berea College, Kentucky, he was closely associated
with the efforts of that institution to adapt higher education to rural 5 y
life. While there he became imbued with the desire to provide better edu- 1
cational opportunities in the open country. , 5
Pursuing this ideal, in 1913 he became head of the Department of
Rural Education at Kent State College. This Work brought him in contact
with teachers and superintendents of rural education. Under Mr. Seale's -A .
direction the college maintained a number of model rural schools. These H .
became centers of improvement. Through the extension service of the
college, Mr. Seale became directly connected with the movement for the im- 31,1
provement of schools throughout the state and aided many districts in the Q
erection of modern school buildings. QQ-,Q
Gathering the best from many schools over a wide area he desired an 531,
opportunity to put them into actual practice. Lorain County provided this 3
opportunity. In 1920 he took up his present work. ii
Under Superintendent Seale's leadership the educational forces gift?
hitherto unorganized were brought together in a program for school im- M
provement. Believing in community participation in improvement pro- 'Vi
grams, Mr. Seale organized a local chapter of the parent-teacher asso- if
ciation in every school district, coordinating the work of these groups in .
the first county council in the United States. As an authority on the legal 1
and financial phases of school administration the county board of education ijj
and twenty-nine local boards have looked to him for counsel. Supt. Seale's 1 '
abounding enthusiasm has radiated to all his teachers and to everyone
of the 6,500 boys and girls enrolled in the county schools. -
Under such leadership, for the past five years, these groups have been
making one united efort for better schools. Almost every district has 3 53
been centralized in a modern building and equipment to meet the highest 3 -1
standard set by the State Department of Education, has been installed.
The curriculum has been enriched, uniform textbooks adopted and the best 31'
teachers procured, until today the rural boys and girls of Lorain County ff"
can secure within their own community the best elementary and high school
education the country affords.

The gregarious instinct of the race found expression in such lively gatherings as
debates and spelling contests and a great deal of local pride was engendered. The
isolation resulting from lack of transportation had no small part in this work.
The chief requirement of the teacher of a half century ago was to be able to suc-
cessfully' wade through such annoying problems in Ray's Higher Arithmetic as find-
ing the volume of the frustum of a pyramid in order that the amount of stone in one
of the Egyptian piles could be accurately ascertained in case some tropical hurricane
should deprive it of an upper story. He was not asked how he could teach reading
but more probably 'how to give all the different sounds of ua." Not special training
in instruction but the ability to thrash the largest boy in school was a teacher's chief
Frame buildings will wear out or burn up, and school houses are no exception to
the rule. This fact gave rise to new buildings and a desire for something better caused
them to be built of brick. When a specially progressive district erected a brick build-
ing the neighboring districts were forced to do the same in self defense, for local pride
With all the progress in building the methods of instruction remained the same.
The teacher was satisfied with his job. His was an honored position in the simple life
of our ancestors.
The grouping of pupils was not very definite in the public schools of the 19th
century. In most schools a system of marking of pupils was wholly lacking. The big
boy in the corner would probably be said to be in the fourth reader and Ray's Third
Part of Arithmetic.
What we have been pleased to call the "Industrial Revolution" occurred during
the last half of the 19th century, and complicated life in the United States as nothing
had done before. Demands were made which the one-room school could not meet. New
subjects were brought into the curriculum and the high prices and steady employment
of the factories made it profitable for the country boy to go to the city to work dur-
ing the winter moonths, or, as often was the case, to leave the farm for a permanent job
4 1 ' xi
in the city. This made it necessary to crowd his education into a much shorter period
of time than formerly. Additional subjects and an ever shorter period of instruction
was a problem which de-manded solution, and the school system was closely scrutinized
for any signs of inefiiciency which could be eliminated.
Just when this added demand was being made upon the schools, the quality of the
teaching force began to fall off alarmingly, for the same call that had come to the
farm boy had come to the teacher as well and he found that his services were amply
regarded in the factories. The idea developed that teaching was a valuable experience
preliminary to a career in business and the transitory teacher was with us. Far-sighted
men viewed the situation with alarm and anxiously looked about for means to make the
teaching profession sufiiciently attractive as a lifetime employment.
Hard surface roads and the automobile tended to break up the local community
just as the mud roads had made the local school house a popular meeting place. Trans-
portation had opened up a new world. The city and its factories took away the perm-
anent teacher, the times demanded a more complex curriculum. These three things
happened at about the same time. Improvements in grouping, curriculum and grading
were sought to meet the demands of the new age.
Many reasons were advanced to account for the rapid drift of the best e-lement
of the country toward the city. It was evident to students of rural life that the one-
room school was finding it difficult to compete with its city neighbors in advantages
offered to its youth. But a deal of sentiment nestled round the little red school house
and the people were loath to give up so hallowed an institution. Changes come slowly
in rural districts. They always have. However, the same feeling of responsibility
which had called forth the log cabin school again rose for the solution of this problem.
In Lorain County it has taken the form of centralized schools.
The greater degree of specialization and more extensive course of study made
possible by these schools have given the rural boys and girls educational opportunities
which compare favorably with those of the city youth. The chance for promotion in
these schools has appealed to teachers and positions are eagerly sought. The problem
of the transitory teacher was largely solved by the law requiring special training in
education for a teacher. The problem of the community meeting place has been met in
the auditoriums of our modern rural schools and their extensive playgrounds.
Again Lorain County has felt the pioneer spirit and the high place she now holds
among the schools of the state show how thoroughly this spirit has found expression.
We are not alone in this progress but we are proud to say that we keep company with

One of the essentials of a good system of schools is good organization.
No effective work can be done Without it, In this respect Lorain County
Schools are particularly favored. The men and Women who make up the
ofiice force as assistants to the county superintendent and as secretaries
are in a very large sense responsible for the success of Lorain County's
Mr. C. Olman Masters has the honor of being the oldest member ofthe
county office force in point of service, coming to his present position in
1914 when the county system of schools was first organized. He received
his training principally at Wooster, although he has spent some time at
Wittenberg and Kent State College. Mr. Masters has a very special in-
terest in rural education and particularly elementary education. He is an
ardent supporter of Parent-Teacher work. If his philosophy of school
work were to be stated it would probably be, "Keep your people with you."
Mr. George J. Mitchelson came to his present position as assistant
county superintendent in charge of high schools in September, 1920. Prior
to that time he had been superintendent of schools at Nova, Ohio. Mr.
Mitchelson received his training principally at Ashland College although
he has spent some time at Wooster, Oberlin, and Ohio State. His major
interest has 'always been the rural schools. In his quiet yet effective way
he has aided much in developing the high schools to their present high
standing. His creed is: a high grade of instructiong all work up to state
standards g every school adequately equippedg all credits properly re-
cordedg all schools conducted in a business-like manner.
Mrs. Helen Fackler came to her present position as assistant superin-
tendent in charge of elementary schools and child accounting at the open-
ing of the present school year in 1924. Prior to that time she had been
assistant director of the Lorain County Normal School. She received her
training in Oberlin College. Her particular interest is elementary edu-
cation with the emphasis upon nature study and hygiene. This year she
has prepared a bulletin of projects in hygiene Which the teachers and
pupils are finding very helpful. It is also a part of her task to keep an
accurate record of attendance of pupils at school and to make out the
necessary reports. Mrs. Fackler is of invaluable assistance to the teachers
of the county in the selection of material for their work and in arrang-
ing it in presentable form.
Miss Eva L. Mackey has occupied her present position as secretary
since September, 1921. She is a product of the Elyria High School and
received her business training at Twin City Business College with addi-
tional Work at Elyria Business College. From the very nature of her work
she has a most intimate knowledge of the educational and business affairs
of the County Board of Education. Much of the success of the oflice de-
pends upon the skill and accuracy with Which she does her work. Her
motto is "Do it right."

' l Very few communities even thought of maintaining i
A X a high school. One writer whose youth dates back
to that period said his idea of a high school was a
1 school conducted on the secondstory of a two-story
. building. At that period there were not one hundred ,
pupils in high school in all Lorain County. WV1'
' Now, all this is changed. The high school has I.
become the people's school-the university of the V
- common man. The vast majority of our boys and H
X 1 girls must get all the preparation for life they will -
1 Q ever get from the high school. The school of today, ,gf
1 l then, must do something more than prepare for .ii
' l college--it must, in the great majority of cases, pre- ,I V
' pare for life. fj
Of course, every first grade high school must offer
those subjects required for admission to our stand- .N
' I ard colleges, but when we think that less than one- 2 '-
half of those who enter high school complete the l
course and less than one-third of those who complete Q 3
' p., the high school course, enter these standard colleges, 'Ly
Y we can easily see that if the high school confined its courses to college entrance re-
- quirements, it would be most unfair to the majority of the pupils.
Every high school must, then, in addition to offering the subjects required for
college entrance, offer a large number of subjects to meet the needs of those who will '
not go to college or who will not even complete the high school. Ig 'S
This is the basic principle in the organization of the high schools of Lorain County il il
,gg -to offer to every boy and girl the best possible opportunity to fit himself or herself F 5
M' for living a happy, enthusiastic and useful life. This idea determines the emphasis ' 5
" placed upon the subjects in the curriculum. f '
. 'Every pupil is required to pursue courses in English during the entire four years
in high school. The reason for this is, that we believe success in life depends largely
on one's ability to express himself in oral and written speech. Much of the course is- de- q
, l voted to the mastery of the principles and practice of correct and easy speech. .

In order that pupils may cultivate a
1 love for the best there is in literature
and thus be able to use their leisure time
with profit and enjoyment, much time is
devoted to the reading of literature,
Throughout each of the years in high
school the pupil is required to pursue a
definite course in reading selected from
the best literature the world affords.
In order to encourage public speaking,
the high schools of the county are or-
ganized into an oratorical and reading
association. Each year there is held a
contest which is county wi-de with
appropriate awards for the winners.
This year for the first time, most of the
schools participated in a debating league.
This aroused a great deal of interest.
In addition, most schools maintain one or
more literary clubs whose aim is to pro-
mote better speech and greater skill in public speaking.
Perhaps, the next most important group of subjects in the high school is that group
known as the social sciences and includes history, civics, sociology and economics. In
the early days high school stu-dents had
little opportunity to study these subjects.
They were taught only in college. When
we consider that the object of all edu-
cation is to train for effective citizenship,
it becomes clear that every student
should have a knowledge of the history
of the world in general and of 'his own
country in particular. He should know
something of the sacrifices of his fore-
fathers in developing and maintaining
our splendid institutions. He should
know something of the form and ope-
ration of our government. He must
have an acquaintance with social pro-
cesses and economic laws. Each student
in high school is required to pursue sub-
jects in this field for at least two years
and has the opportunity for continuing
for four years. This work is not con- h
fined to textbooks alone. The students investigate problems of current interest. Many
classes have visited the courts of mayors and judges. They have studied problems
of taxation. They have interviewed
public officials and held mock conven-
tions and elections. In most high schools
there is some form of student govern-
ment. It is the belief of those responsible
for the curriculum that the best way to
develop good citizens is through the con-
crete practice of citizenship. Interest in
this field sometimes finds expres-sion in
The next most important group of sub-
jects in high schools is known as the
physical sciences. This group usually
includes physics, chemistry, biology,
botany, physiology and general science.
Many of these have been in the high
school curriculum for a long period, but,

under the infiuence of the movement
toward the practical, they have been -, ,,
completely reorganized. The subject
matter in each of these sciences is alto- QT.
gether different from that found in the -
texts of earlier years. Then the theo-
retical was emphasized, now it is the
practical. Some of these subjects, as for
example, chemistry, have but recently
found their way into the high school, and
particularly the- small high school. Today
it is perhaps the most fundamental and
the most popular course of all the .
sciences. Properly taught, it answers a Q
thousand questions in every day life, as, 5
why does bread rise or milk sour? No
student is equipped to understand life 1
and the wonderful processes in nature all about him if he has not studied one or more
of these sciences.
Perhaps, it is not safe to state the various groups of subjects and to arrange them
in the order of their importance although there can
be little danger of disagreement on the three groups
mentioned above in the order in which they are listed. 5

vocational subjects, including manual training, home if
economics and the various business courses. These .ref
are all new comers to the high school curriculum. For rr
many years they were offered only to those who were
unable, because of mental handicaps, to master the il
courses in language and mathematics. They were
listed under "General Course" and were not ac- X
credited for college entrance. Today, h-owever, they Qi ,
have taken their place in the curriculum as vital sub- 1?
jects and are proving their value in the skills de-
veloped. It is with the introduction of these courses '1
as a recognized part of the training of every pupil 5
that the m-odern high school has broken completely ll K
with the old order. '
Every pupil in Lor- ii
ain County high -I
schools has an op- E
portunity to gain a :-
practical education i l
in this field. 1
Thus far we have not mentioned the two great X i
groups of subjects which made up the backbone of the . i
V curriculum of the earlier school-foreign languages l 1
and mathematics. These were not left to the last be- l
cause they are unimportant, but because in weighing p '
the values of the various courses to the average
student, it is felt that these subjects are not so fun- m -
damental to all students as are those in the other I
groups. Certainly, there is fine training for the -
' student who pursues his Latin with diligence or who
has a taste for language and an ability in mathema- Q71
j tics, is urged to pursue courses in these subjects and .ii
large numbers do. Y'

high schools today, and compare it with the meager

courses of a generation ago, it gives rise
to the wish in the mind of the man of
forty that he might go to school again.
In the elementary schools the changes
just as great, although less noticeable to
change in subjects but a change in the
subject matter and in the methods of
teaching. Today the elementary teacher
must know something of child psy-
chology. The subject matter must be
presented in such a way that the learn-
ing process will go on as rapidly as
subject matter have perhaps been
ublic because the change is not a.
possible. Under the influence of modern
pedagogy, many of the methods of earlier days have gone. Reading is no longer taught
by the a, b, c method. The pupil is taught to recognize whole words and phrases at a
glance. The result is more rapid reading and a better grasp of content. Again, in
the earlier day, all reading was oral. Today silent reading has been developed. A
method of teaching has likewise been evolved and pupils are being taught to read with
a speed and a comprehension never before attained. Moreover, the majority of pupils
enjoy reading and under the guidance of the skillful teacher are making the acquaint-
ance of the best books. The pupil of a generation ago read only one book, now the
pupil reads many books.
The changes in the teaching of reading have been discussed at some length. The
changes in the other subjects must be passed over briefly for lack of space, but changes
in these subjects are no less important. In spelling, for example, the pupil is fno longer
required to spell a long list of words, the meaning of which he does not know and
which he will never use. Many studies of spelling have been made and the words
given our pupils today are only such words as are in common speech. T'hus, the pupil
saves time and is a better speller by all practical tests than if he had stu-:lied words he
would never use. This same inhuence has been at work in writing, history, geography
and language. So much progress has been made in this field that the schools are able
to ive the pupils as thorough mastery of the fundamental subjects in six years as they
were able to get in eight years under the old methods. In addition, time IS found for
. . . . d
such subjects as music, drawing, physical education and play. Someone has calle
these the frills in education. If education is to make one socially efficient, healthful
and happy, then these subjects are as
fundamental as any.
Parallel to this movement for time
saving in the elementary schools has
grovsm up another type of school or-
ganization-the Junior High. For years
educational leaders have recognized that
the pupils of the seventh and eighth
grades do not belong in the same group
with the lower grades in the elementary ,W
school. Neither do they belong with the

to leave school at the end of the eighth
grade. Large numbers of those who did '
go to high school failed in the first year.
The best solution of the problem has
been found in the organization of the
junior high school, which includes the
pupils of grades seven, eight and
The junior high school provides de-
partmental instruction, promotes a better X,
type of organization, gives the pupils of 1,
these grades a more definite share in the
life of the school, as well as larger op- '
portunites in athletics. Lorain County's i
schools are organized with six years in
the elementary school, three years in the junior high school and three years in the i
senior high school. The plan is working well and is in accord with the movement for i
better schools throughout the country. 3
In all our schools much attention is given to the health of the pupils. Personal, 1 X
school and home hygiene is taught in the schools.
The sixty-five hundred boys and girsl enrolled in Lorain County's public schools N ,V
have unusual opportunities. Most communities provide in their own schools, twelve ' 5
years of work. There are thirteen first grade high schools, each offering four years 'll
of work. There are two second grade schools offering three years of work. These will '
become first grade as rapidly as possible. There are also two regularly organized ,L
junior high schools which are not connected with senior highs.
The club work of the county under the leadership of the county agent is closely
related to the schools. Credit is given on home projects. One of our schools main- 'iii
tains a Smith-Hughes department of agriculture with a large enrollment and carrying 3
on a long list of projects.
Truly in the making of citizens, the people of Lorain County are doing their :QL

Boards of Education
In Lorain County there are twenty-nine boards of education com-
posed of 145 men and women who are entrusted with the task of providing
educational opportunities for seven thousand boys and girls. If thesge
men and women fail to sense their responsibility or to feel the importance
of elilucation to the youth of their communities, then little can be accom-
Fortunate it is for Lorain County that those who have membership
on the boards of education are not actuated by selfish motives but by a
sincere desire to serve. We may feel assured that in each and every case
they want to make the schools as good as the means at hand will permit.
The cost of education has increased very rapidly within the past de-
cade. This is no fault of the board of education. Costs have risen in
every line-in the schools perhaps least of all. For generations the pub-
lic paid little attention to school costs but now that they have risen so
suddenly it is only natural that people everywhere should want to know
the reason. The first impulse is to charge the board with extravagance.
However, the public is beginning to be aware that the cause of the in-
crease is to be found altogether outside the board of education and beyond
its control. The increase is due to the rise in the general level of prices
so that teachers cost more, transportation, janitors, coal, supplies, build-
ing-all cost more. Then, too, more pupils are going to school than ever
before. The public is demanding better facilities. All these cannot be
had without increased cost.
The public should realize that the board of education are the biggest
builders in the community. They are the largest employers of skilled
labor, they purchase more coal and supplies than any other business organ-
ization. No other organization is charged with such responsibility-that
of training the future citizens of our country.
' During the recent reorganization of the schools of the county, many
buildings have been erected. This involved many special meetings lasting
until late hours of the night and in some cases to early hours of the morn-
ing. The boards of education have given without stint of their time in
order that every dollar might be wisely expended.
The high standard which has been attained by the schools of Lorain
County as recognized by the State Department of Education and by edu-
cators of the state and nation could not have been realized but for the
untiring and unselfish motives, able support and continuous co-operation
of the boards of education.

Because he was able to influence the minds of men in such masterly
fashion, Jesus has been called The Great Teacher. It has been said of
Mark Hopkins that if he were on one end of a log and someone who wished
to learn was on the other, you would have all the essentials of a great uni-
versity. This emphasizes the truth that the most important factors in
the educational process are the teacher and the pupil.
Education is one of the oldest occupations known to civilization. Even
in prehistoric times and among savage peoples provision was made to train
the youth in the habits, customs and skills found to be most essential to
success in adult life. Among the ancients, long before there were school
houses, men went about the streets and stood in the market place and
taught all who desired to learn. Teaching has always been an honorable
vocation. The teacher has been the leader-the bearer of the torch of
civilization in every age.
If we were to ask what country has contributed most to the civiliza-
tion of the world, we would not look to China, whose government has gone
on unchanged for centuries, and whose religious institutions antedate his-
tory itself. Rather would we turn to Greece, that little country by the
Aegean Sea, Where an old man with bowed head and bare feet stopped the
idler to inquire "What is beauty? What is truth ?" It was the teachers
of Greece that made her great.
In the Middle Ages the teachers were found principally in monas-
taries, shut away from the world and because of that fact, the lamp of
civilization burned low-almost went out. Learning could be had only by
certain privileged classes. With the advent of modern times, learning
was sought as the heritage of common men and women everywhere. The
teacher once more took his place in the community as the leader of youth.
The importance of the teacher's 'work has been recognized and the con-
ditions of his employment improved until today teaching may be classed
among thelearned professions, and recognition given accordingly.
One could not tell the story of school progress in Lorain County and
not write a chapter on the teachers. We have expended large sums to pro-
vide buildings, grounds and equipment, but after all these are mere tools
to be used by the teachers in doing a more effective work. When one con-
siders the Work of the teachers of Lorain County he gets a mental pic-
ture of two hundred twenty-eight men and women, gathering daily into
their classrooms nearly seven thousand boys and girls, of all ages from
the first grade through the high school. Each teacher is responsible for a
certain definite piece of work. Each is qualified by temperament, exper-
ience and training to do that Work. That it is well ,done is shown by the
interest of the pupils and the progress in their studies. Through her con-
tact With the community, the school and home are brought into closer rela-
tionship and education becomes a matter of partnership in which the train-
ing of citizens is the chief concern.
In those schools which have been centralized or consolidated as Well
as in the village schools, the faculties are organized into elementary,

junior and senior high school faculties. These are headed by a superinten-
dent or principal according to the size of the school and the number of
teachers in the group. Upon the head of each of these schools falls the
responsibility for the conduct of the school in detail. Lorain County is
fortunate in having as leaders in its schools men and women especially
trained for the work and above all possessing a vision of the school as
it ought to be. With leadership of this kind our schools must take a high
place in the community.
Every teacher in Lorain County meets every educational, ethical and
moral requirement of the state. It is interesting to note the wide range
of colleges and universities from which our teachers come.

I HTo the Seniors" 2
The past four years have been ones of growth and achievement for
the Lorain County Schools. Each year sees some improvement. Studies,
debates, athletics, orations and plays have been happily achieved with E15
mingled efforts and pleasures. It is hoped that the following pages will Elf!
indicate something of the life and activities of our Senior Classes, and 'gy
may still further the bonds of friendship existing between them. .gl
The Seniors have reached the station in life now where an active part iii
in community affairs is demanded. The purest joy that they can ever ex- Qag
perience will consist in doing their duty to God and to man. The highest
and most lasting happiness will come to those who will be a benefit to
others by making their lives count for something. With a growing sense Isa.,
of duty and responsibility, the Seniors of the Lorain County Schools are in
preparing to take leave of their Alma Maters.
Seniors! What a magical word! What does it mean? There surely ii,
must be some import behind the word 5 if not, why is it that they so easily U r-
command the respect of their schoolmates of lower rank? Why are they
worthy of the increased privileges allowed by their teachers? Is it that p 5
they have "arrived ?" Have they finished their life work? Of course, they ,
feel that they are at the very peak of the world, for they have accomplished lil
twelve years of preparation for life, cram, jam full of habits coaxed and 32,
pounded into their heads by their teachers, fairly bursting with ideas I
seeking outlet in some form of activity.
Yes, they have finished-but wait-I see the word "Commencement"
looming on the horizon. Ah, the finish is attended by a commencement! ,Nfl
Listen, Seniors, it is but the Commencement of Life itself. Now is If
your opportunity to use the habits learned in the last twelve yearsg your in
opportunity to give those ideas free outlet in whatever line of work you
take up. But remember, Seniors, with this opportunity comes responsi- Eg
bility. Responsibility to civilization and to society. The responsibility
of living up to the ideals which your teachers have set before you and of it
utilizing to the utmost the knowledge which you have gained. Now is Ili
Your Opportunity, Seniors, go to it and show the world. ,if
Eight seniors entered the home oratory contest at Amherst. They
took the first four places. Nearly all of the boys of the class were promi- El
nent in athletics. In the '24-'25 season, not one of them was disqualified U
from any contest because of deficient scholarship. 'gf
"Not what you give, but what you share," and although the Avon 5
Seniors have given, they have also shared. One of the outstanding contri- '
butions to the school was buying the beautiful velour curtain and drops I

The class of 25 of Brighton High School has always been small in
numbers. Starting with an enrollment of but six, it is finishing with
seven. It has left several mementos behind, among them being the electric
light fixtures in the Senior High study hall.
On the first day of the school year beginning in the fall of 1921 there
assembled in the corridors of Brownhelm high school a groupof eighteen
wide-eyed and wondering Freshmen. Fourteen have "stuck to the last"
and are graduating as the Class of 1925.
Aside from the influence shown by the Camden Senior Class of '25 in
its willingness to assist in furthering any project which was for the bet-
terment of the different organizations or school in general, it is leaving a
beautiful stage curtain as a final token of respect and appreciation.
The eleven seniors of Columbia high school. came from Olmsted,
Strongsville, Berea and Elyria high schools as sophomores. From the
first, this class has taken an active interest in all scholastic activities, both
literary and athletic and hasplayed a prominent part in the social life of
The Belden Senior Class has always tried to uphold the highest stan-
dards of scholarship, friendliness and school spirit. It has always been
loyal to the school and will show its appreciation for what it has gained
from the high school work by leaving a substantial gift to the school as a
The Senior Class of Grafton high school entered in 1921 with sixteen
members. Undoubtedly the greatest thing the class has accomplished is
the raising of the standing of our school, not only in athletics, but socially,
morally and along scholastic lines.
The musical, athletic and literary activities of the Henrietta Seniors
have ever been prominent. They started humbly on the road to gradua-
tion in the town hall in September, 1922. Where 12 made the start 10 will
finish the race. Grade Dudley of our number won the county oratorical
contest in 1924.
La Grange Seniors-we were 19 in number when freshies. After
selecting our class colors and choosing officers we began the life of high
school. Our sophomore year was not very exciting-just humdrum. While
juniors it was work, work, work. Class dues, banquets and plays-hurry,
hurry, hurry. Now we are seniors and graduation.
In the year 1921 eight boys and girls were enrolled in the Freshman
class of Penfield high school. The class took a prominent part in all
school activities and have kept up this standard throughout the four years.
In oratory in the first year, two members of the class took first and third
honors as readers. Four members of the county champion debating team
are in the graduating class of 1925.

The 1925 class of South Amherst has a membership of 18. The ma- ,
jority of the boys are making plans for higher education and most of the is
girls are planning to attend normal school. This year's class was the first
to spend the complete four years in the new building. 4,
Throughout the time we have been in Wellington high school we 9
have contributed well to every branch of work. Although the time has
come for us to leave we will forget our days in W. H. S.

As we are working our way toward life's chief goal, this poem comes
to our mind: p
Ships sail east and ships sail west, lp fl
While the self-same breezes blow 3
For 'tis the set of the sails and not the gales,
Which show them the way to go. Q!

L1ke the ships of the sea are the ways of faith 5
As we journey along through 1ife's years, i
For 'tis the set of the soul that determines the goal,
And not the calm nor the tears.

T J The Junior High School is the newest development in educational or- Wg
n I ganization. It was established as an opportunity school for children in the I
early years of adolescence. It is comprised of pupils in the seventh, eighth ri
and ninth grades. Although the idea originated only a decade ago, it has
grown by leaps and bounds until now there are numerous junior high if f
schools in a majority of the states of the union. M
Let us consider briefly a few of the points in favor of the junior high U j,
school. , W
First, it serves to keep pupils in school an additional year. Statistics Q5-5
show that many pupils, who under the old 8-4 organization would have i
dropped out of school, have, under the new 6-3-3 scheme, been benefited by W
at least one more year of school. Moreover, this additional year has served ,gl
to stimulate many to continue their studies in the senior high school. Wg
Second, a marked economy of time in education is evident. This has iii:
Q resulted from the fact that under the new plan promotions are made by ig!
subject instead of by grades. We no longer require a pupil to repeat a 'W
iff course in which he has not failed. Under the old plan if John Doe did not A ,
do satisfactory work in seventh grade arithmetic and history, he was re-
quired to repeat the work of the entire grade. Now, however, he may re- M ,A
! peat his seventh grade arithmetic and history, while he is at the same time 1
I enrolled in the eighth grade in all of his other subjects. Thus the pupil fl if
may now proceed with a speed determined by his native ability. sl
iii: Third, the individuality of pupils is recognized and they are afforded :Q
the opportunity to discover themselves by means of an enriched curriculum. A
In many of the Lorain County Schools the pupils are even now permitted
a certain number of electives. Among these are the industrial arts, music W
5' and vocational civics. The advantages of a system of electives is self-
T evident. EQ,
. Fourth, under the new plan pupils are receiving better instruction. Q
5 Under the departmental plan pupils change class rooms at regularly stated H'
I intervals. Each subject is taught by a teacher who is especially trained in '.W
, a particular field. This has resulted in a maximum degree of efficiency. Ji
1 V Too, pupils benefit by the change of class-rooms, for they are thus given an QV
3 opportunity to relax and stretch their muscles. Most pupils admit that 35,
3 f time passes very rapidly under this arrangement. 3,3
1 Fifth, in most of our junior high schools there has been introduced a ii'
W systematic course in physical training. According to the present statutes iff'
4 of Ohio, all pupils in the public schools must receive a minimum of one
g hundred minutes per week in physical education. This consists of from 'ij
i 30-45 minutes formal work and from 55-70 minutes informal work. The ij
i, 2 work is always under the immediate supervision of a competent instructor. 'il
' , Formal work embraces marching, calisthenics, building pyramids and per- TU.
haps some aesthetic dancing. Informal work generally consists of group
competition in various relay races and games. The most common in our
county junior highs are possibly basketball, volley ball, indoor baseball, i
. sock ball, end ball and zig-sag ball games. Educators are realizing more J

and more the value of this training, and pupils universally agree that the
work is not only stimulating physically but also mentally. g
Sixth, great possibilities are offered to children to "round out" their
lives by early becoming interested in social, recreative and 'cultural ac-
tivities. The early adolescent age is dynamic. Pupils have a super-abun- lint
dance of energy which the school seeks to guide into the proper channels. QV
At this stage pupils begin to explore in different fields. This accounts if
for the numerous extra-curricular activities of our Junior High Schools. St?
Let us briefly consider some of these activities in Lorain County Junior V'
High Schools. Outstanding are our representative athletic teams in all
sports in season. Here pupils are rewarded for merit in physical endeavor. ,,,
Adolescents take particular pleasure in representing their school, in clean fl.
and Wholesome athletic competition. This creates a strong school spirit, fs
encourages clean living and develops the power to think quickly. These are it
very desirable qualities and are fundamental in building true manhood and 14 A
Consider, too, some of our activities of social nature. Avon, Camden, if
Columbia, Grafton and Henrietta high schools have admitted representa- bi ll
tives of the junior high classes to membership in the student council.
Student councils are a democratic form of student government. The work 'V
of a council is to -recommend improvements and discuss student life and Mn l
school regulations with a view to the general welfare of the student body.
It is certainly a high honor to a junior high pupil to be admitted even to I
associate membership in such an organization. Here he gains first-hand
knowledge of the policies and purposes of the public schools.
Most of our extra-curricular activities are cultural as well as social.
There is afforded excellent training in public speaking. There are debat- Qiw
ing teams at Avon and Ridgeville g there are two unique literary societies, if
the Tennysonian and Emersonian at South Amherst. Such organizations
are very instrumental in overcoming the timidty and awkwardness so V i
characteristic of the early adolescent age. Closely affiliated with our school 'i
work are our various musical organizations- Music is raapidly gaining a 4
place of prominence in our junior highs- Chief among our county organ- Dil
izations is the Avon Lake Junior High Orchestra consisting of seventeen Q 1
pieces. We note, too, that Highland and Brookside have active glee clubs. ff
The former recently presented a victrola and a complete set of records to '
the school- The B. G. C. club of Brighton junior high is unique in char- l
acter. Its motto is "Sew so, and not so." We readily glean its meetings ff.,
are enjoyable. A high standard of scholarship is a requisite for member- 'y
ship in most of these extra-curricular organizations. lj
Most of the junior high classes are regular organized and have duly if V
elected ofhcers. This develops school spirit and strengthens class spirit. ' A
Several of the junior highs have regular commencement exercises. This not
only inspires many to continue their studies in high school, but also serves Q
as a fitting climax for the school career of those who may not be fortunate if
enough to resume their studies in high school. The Junior High Schools , .
of Lorain County have passed through the experimental stage and give l
promise of a successful future. sl ,.

jgmgmqggg Elementary Schools
In our county, we have adopted the 6-6 plan of school organization.
In this plan, the Work of the first six grades is an organized preparation
for Junior and Senior High School. The first six grades are the founda-
tion upon which the body of general high school education is built.
In making this preparation, it is necessary to follow definite plans
in the study of the subjects of reading, writing, arithmetic, spelling, his-
tory, hygiene, geography, nature study, music, drawing and physical
education. However, these are not all begun as special subjects in the
first grade. Since reading is the avenue thru which the greater part of
knowledge is gained, due emphasis is placed on it in the first three grades.
It is the most wide-reaching acquisition made by the child in school.
The experiment of the County Board of Education in furnishing sup-
plementary reading to the second, third and fourth grades of some schools
has met with great success. One of the most important benefits derived
from this plan has been the added interest in the reading work. This
interest has created in the child a desire to be able to read well and with
understanding, so that he may enjoy the stories for himself. This plan
has lead to an increased effort on his part to become a proficient reader.
Word and phrase study have kept pace with the teaching of poetry, lib-
rary reading and dramatization. The elementary grades of Avon, Avon
Lake, Grafton, Brownhelm, La Grange and other schools have given ex-
cellent entertainments consisting of plays, pageants and operettas. School
is made interesting these days. Our fathers and mothers who studied
the three R's many years ago Wlould not recognize the same subjects as
they are being taught today. School efficiency keeps pace with the pas-
sage of time.
The elementary grades have the privilege of using the school gym-
nasium for their physical education, games and various team practices.
Basketball, football, baseball and volley ball teams are organized in a
large number of schools. Every pupil has one hundred minutes of super-
vised physical education Work a week, and many of the schools are splen-
didly equipped to take care of this activity. School activities are not con-
fined to athletics alone, however, as spelling contests, music memory con-
tests, literary societies, bands and orchestras are other forms of pursuits.
Many of the grades have organized class officers and send representatives
to the school student council.
Nature study hikes are taken in a few schools, and the time is spent
in identifying birds, flowers, trees, weeds, mosses and ferns. Preliminary
sltudly lgf these phases of nature study are held tin the class room preceding
t e i e.
Field trips are also taken in the interests of agriculture and hygiene
Agriculture trips are taken to judge cattle, learn how to prune trees study
grafting, and learn to select the best varieties of fruits and vegetables

The elementary grades of the various schools are keen competitors ,M
at the County Fair which is held in Elyria every fall. South Amherst and 3
La Grange were close rivals for individual prizes in Class A. Avon, Brownhelm, Columbia and Camden were leaders in Class B. Eaton,
Elyria, and Ridgeville Townships led in Class C. The best township ex-
hibits in Class A were those of La Grange and Amherst Villages. In Class
B, Camden Township and Sheffield Lake Village were the winners. Class
C winners were Eaton and Pittsfield Townships.

ATTENDANCE 5 ,
Most of the children attend school with T I
regularity, but occasionally it is necessary to 1
have a visit from the County Attendance Offi- y
cer, Mr. Chas. C. Smith. Mr. Smith is a genial,
kindly man, yet very insistent that every child
must be in school every day. It is the business
of the Attendance Officer not only to encourage I
reguiar attendance, but also to instill in the I
minds of the parents of the boys and girls the value of education as provided in our public E

A survey of the various rural high schools of Lorain County in 1922,
would have found but two schools having a student publication-Amherst
and Wellington. Within this year another publication, The Avon Booster,
was launched in Avon, under the direction of E. R. Johnson, principal.
This new student activity was at once approved by the other high schools
but the cost at first oHered a severe setback. However, a plan was finally
worked out, on a county basis, whereby one half of each monthly issue of a
school's paper was taken over by the county, it being the same in each
publication in the county. This section is changed each month and contains
only items of general interest. The cover and additional pages are edited
by each school in the system, thus giving each paper that local color and
form necessary to assure its success.
Under this plan, and within two years' time, thirteen school papers
were developed, bringing the total number up to fifteen for the county.
When so many people become interested in one topic, as the publishing
of a high school paper, a desire is felt to meet and discuss common prob-
lems. Two such meetings of the staffs have been held, one at Avon Lake
and another at South Amherst. These meetings were addressed by men of
note in the newspaper field. Moreover, a fine banquet and social time was
enjoyed by all present. A permanent organization was effected, to be
known as the Lorain County Hi-Press Club. This brought to Lorain
County the distinction of having the iirst county organization of this type
in the United States. Below is found a summary of our publications with
a short sketch of each.
The Purple and Gold-Grafton High School. Editor, Pearl Woodings.
Business Manager, Lucius Bartlett. The name of Purple and Gold, together
with our emblem "The Pillar" was presented by our student council and
unanimously chosen. We have the loyal support of over 300 subscribers.
The Henrietta Hub, Henrietta High School. Editor, Grace Dudley.
Business Manager, Kenneth Pietch. The "Hub" seemed appropriate as a
name for our paper because the school is the center of our activities. The
various departments of our paper have been called the "spokes," the
community news encircling all, the "Rim."
The Avon Booster, Avon High School. Editor, Virginia 'Williams
Business Manager, Eugene Hubbard. This name has always been signi-
iicant of our publication. Our first issues were devoted to the purpose of
centralizing our schoolsg now since this is acccomplished we will continue
to boost our school and community.
The Belden Bugle, Grafton Twp. High School. Editor, Donna Rogers.
Business Manager, Raymond Pomeroy. A name chosen from many sug-
gested, as best suited to our publication. By it, our school life is reflected to
the community, bringing a closer union and a better understanding to the
minds of our 150 subscribers.
The Spectrum, Avon Lake High School. Editor, Winifred Jaycox.
Business Manager, Viola Knipper. Depicting the various colors of school
and community life. This paper helps to put across our varied and
up-to-date school program. With a united community, a worthwhile school
System may be developed. Continued on Page 150

Oratory and Reading in Lorain County

I shall not take time to check up on my memory. The above is at least
within gun-shot of a quotation. And do you remember that when you were
a small boy or a small girl the ice cream was made so much better than
it is now, that the second dish tasted even better than the first?
Maybe you are beginning to Wonder what all of this has to do with
oratory and readings. For you, it really hasn't much to do. For your
father-and your mother-it is a sort of a challenge. We think that
the quality of the work in this line in Lorain County is remarkably fine.
So, when you think of the old speaking days with some of the fine pro-
ductions of the time-and they were fine-we know that even with these
memories for comparisons you will find the present day Work of our boys

a poor one gets even close to the semi-finals. To get into the finals, it

Following the orations in this section are several productions sub-
mitted for this part of the book by various schools of the county. We
should like to have printed more of the copy submitted, but, found it
necessary to select a relatively small part of the material.
To those whose productions are not included herewith, we want to
say, "Come Again." It was a pleasure to read the material. I Want to
thank you for sending it in.
The Other Side of the Japanese Question
Lelia Pippert, South Amherst.
Must we fight Japan? This question has been asked time and again
throughout the entire land for the last ten years. Do we want to fight
Japan? If we prepare for war, war is what we shall have. For does not
the Bible say-"As ye sow, so shall ye also reap?" The whole world de-
sires peaceg does not the League of Nations and World Court indicate this?
Must we fight Japan? Let us consider the question from the stand-
point of the five chief influences which demand peace at the present time.
Certainly, the most conspicuous one is the widespread disgust concern-
ing the idea of using war as a means of getting results. Every American
realizes that the cost of the World War was out of all proportion to any
resulting benefits. Five years ago this statement would have been treason,
today it is an axiom. That this same sentiment is shared by Japan is
shown in their sending Tsuneo Matsudaira, their ables diplomat, to Wash-
ington to promote peace ful relations between the two countries.
Mars, the war god seems to be reaching his clutching hand out toward
us. Is Mars going to swallow Japan and America, our great country, as
Saturn swlallowed his children? Surely the people of the United States do
not wish it, and Japan has the same sentiment.
The second influence is the rapidly growing solidarity of intellectual
classes of the world, and their concerted efforts to anticipate international
crises and block them by open debate and publicity. In this movement,
the intellectuals of Japan play a worthy part.
A third influence is the shaky financial condition of the whole world-
Japan in particular. No country, however wealthy can enter a war and in
the end lose nothing. No country by itself or allied with other nations
can afford war. Look at Germany today! What is she? Merely a scene of
desolation. Her money in value amounts to a mere nothing, while her life
is a struggle for existence. Germany has debts, heavy debts which she
One Hundred and Fifty-Foufr
fa a sement
HE, M 5 lu QE 5 S -llIllfC5ul42IIIb'lIP'l
cannot pay Therefore her innocent people suffer
Japan is looking to us for guidance. Oo you as citizens of America
desire to see our little brother of the Orient suffer like Germany?
Now the fourth infiuence is the commercial phase. Japan's new in-
dustrial system depends upon the United States for most of its raw ma-
terial and special machinery. Few Americans realize that for some years
to come this is the strongest deterrent to war.
By far the largest and most profitable industry of Japan is the pro-
duction of raw silk. In 1919 the exports amounted to S310,873,820. Of
this immense total, the United States purchased 96Wn.
Add to raw silk the various forms of silk goods and you find that in
the same year we bought more than 87W of the amount produced by them.
Naturally Japanese silk producers and manufacturers are not to be found
among those clamoring for war.
Now the other phase-At present, Japan is woefully dependent upon
for her supply of semi-finished iron and steel, as well as for engines
and machinery. Look again at the figures of 1919. Japan bought 55120,-
000,000 worth of these commodities of which we furnished 8096.
All this indicates that Japan's new industrial life is closely bound
up with our own. Buying from, and selling to us, stimulates an interest in
maintaining friendly relations with the United States. We find this to
be a fact, they are steadfastly opposing thevarious infiuences which tend
to make for ill feeling and war.
As to the fifth and last iniiuence, we speak of Janan's pretensions and
horrors of war. Baron Kikuchi, former Minister of Education and presi-
dent of Imperial University of Kyoto said: "There is some misunderstand-
ing in America about our pretensions! We are supposed to stand forth
as champions of East against West. We make no such pretension. Our
ambition is to act as interpreter between the East and West. We can do
more to make them intelligible to one another and lessen race antagonism
than any other nation. We believe that our peculiar location, where the
two great streams of civilization are in closest contact, gives us an ad-
vantage in harmonizing the good of each."
As to the horrors of war--take the scent of the battlefield-dead men
and horses heaped up by thousands lay putrefying-the screaming of shot
and shell mingling with the moaning of the wounded, trenches half-filled
with water, mice and rats. Think of the devasted regions, babies torn
from their mothers' arms, and children without home, parents or food.
When the call to arms was heard, who did not shudder? No nation that
looks into the future and sees wrecked humanity and ruination can ever
Japan needs our aid, and we are broad-minded enough to consider the
great principle and not the petty ones-
"Then let us pray that come it may
As come it will for a' that
That Sense and Worth o'er a' the earth .
It's comin yet for a' that
That man to man the world o'er
Shall brithers be for a' that."

M Friendship ht
Friendship has ever been the master passion of all na-
tions and climes that which links man and man together as by
a golden chain.
David and Jonathan! We know them not for whatthey
did, but for what they were. Perhaps no earthly friendship
was ever more beautiful than theirs. No multitude of ac-
quaintances can compensate for the loss of a single friend, for
an acquaintance is to a friend what the icy splendor of a star
is to the glorious warmth of the sunshine.
In times of sorrow and disappointment, only the hearty
grasp of a friendly hand, and the cheery ring of a friendly
voice, can fill the loneliness in our hearts. To the world in
general, we go about with inscrutable countenances, conceal-
ing our true feelings behind a mask of pride or indifference
can reveal our true selves. Here we know that we shall not
meet with rebuff, shall not be misunderstood and shall not be
unappreciated. The greatest souls of all times confess that
their lives have been moulded and guided to a far greater de-
gree by personal association, than by any other single influ-
ence. There are countless examples in the pages of history of
perfect and enduring friendships which have sprung up be-
tween the great men of the past. The ravages of time may
sadly dim the glory of the deeds of these men, and the passing
years may blot out the fast fading remembrances of their
claims to greatness, but the vision of their whole-hearted, de-
votion to each other shall shine with undimmed splendor
through all the ages, and shall never be forgotten so long as
there exists in the world 'an appreciation of the true nobility
of the soul.
We should be careful, however, in the choosing of our
friends for false friends-like our shadows, keep close to us
in the sunshine, only to leave us with the first cloud. Many
people use the disguise of friendship in order to procure for
themselves some advantage, financially or otherwise. The real
friends, for false friends-like our shadows, keep close to us
very often our troubles are lessened by the sympathy and un-
derstanding of a kind friend. The old proverb "A friend in
need is a friend indeed" has been proven many times
and it is only in the confidence of a mutual devotion that wg ,

One H undfred and Fifty-Six
And Along Came Debate
I M. JVM
Introduced pleasingly and chaperoned amply by Mr.
Meyers, debate made its debut this year in a series of con-
tests involving nine of the County High Schools.
It was another case of the "eternal triangle," with the
exception that there were three triangles in place of the
The three corners of Triangle One Were Avon, Avon
Lake and Ridgeville. Each affirmative team Won in the
contests, but when the "percentages" Were added to the
"points," Avon Lake came off victor in the group.
Triangle Two touched at South Amherst, Grafton and
La Grange. Grafton's affirmative and negative teams both
won, and pulled their school through as winner in this set.
T'other triangle hit Penfield, Belden and Columbia.
Penfield's double victory won the honors in this group.
Thus Avon Lake, Grafton and Penfield fought their Way in-
to the finals.
The affirmative teams migrated. Avon Lake Went to
Penfield, Penfield to Grafton, and Grafton to Avon Lake.
The judges retired, the musicians entertained the
crowd for awhile-K very capably, by the Wayj-the judges
trooped back, the chairman told his funny stories and
Penfield won the county championship.
Banners and a Wall plaque were passed out to the Win-
ners. They say they will need another set for another
big debating contest next year.
We ought not to overlook the subject of the debate. It
was a good one :-"Shall the Child Labor Amendment be

Apparently the educators of the county have adopted this thought of Q
Shakespeare and have determined that our students shall be accustomed if
j ' to the stage and acting when they leave school, as we find numerous dram- if
5 atic associations in all parts of the county. it ti
E5 The value of dramatics is beyond question. It gives one the power to lil
l portray many characters, enabling one to see the point of View of many
5 I people. The effect is obviously broadening to one's field of understanding 5'
I and appreciation. It gives one often expert knowledge of how to inter- 115.
, pret, through the work of competent directors. One of the characteristics
needed in our varied social life is unquestionably adaptabilityg the ability, '
"lf that is, to adjust one's self readily to unusual circumstances. Dramatics 'A
prove an invaluable aid in developing this particular faculty. In addition,
5 one gains ability to face an audience with self-confidence and control.
The type of play given is very good. That the faculty supervisors
are up-to-the-minute is shown by the fact that the one-act play has been
r, R so universally accepted in all of the schools. The popularity of this type
of play is comparatively recent, but it is now recognized as important as fl
Y T the regulation five-act drama. 'f
, Avon reports a dramatic club of 15 members and a coach. Last year 'jul
ll this association gave "What Happened to Jones" and is now Working on lgg
several one-act plays, among them being "The Florist Shop." 5
pl Brighton has staged three one-act plays, among them being "Miss
l lg Civilization," by Richard Harding Davis. The Ridgeville dramatic club i
3 i comprises 40 people, who have studied stage mechanics, as well as produced 1
plays. At Columbia, dramatics are left to the entire student body. Several f
I one-act plays have been produced, among them being "That Awful Letter," F
E3 etc. They are working on an excellent senior play at the present time. '
5 i LaGrange has likewise put on an evening of three one-act plays, "The li!
Flight of the Herons," "Atmosphere," and "The Florist Shop." Highland ! 5
l Junior High School places a scholarship excellence standard for eligibility Q
to membership, as does LaGrange. They have given "The Real American gg,
Girl." The 30 members of the dramatic club at Camden have been work- Q-
ing hard to help buy stage equipment. They have played "Engaged by
' Wednesday," and "When a Feller Needs a Friend."
V H Dramatics deserve the excellent backing they are receiving.

Moulders of Men
Some are born with the gift of words,
Of words that sing and swing,
Of words that flit as gracefully
As a swallow on the wing.
The man who can make stubborn words bend to his will is very much
to be envied. For he can mould the minds of men and bring light into the
darkness of ignorance. All the Wisdom of the ages has been gathered by
the writers into books for all of us. The finest thoughts and deeds of
mankind, all the beauty and the art, have been treasured to enrich us
with immortal knowledge.
The man who is tired from toil may be carried away to the realms of
adventure, with the whole World for a playground, forgetful of self and
of weariness. He may sail the swelling seas and know the tang of the
sharp, salt air, far from his work-a-day world. He may battle the cold
of the Yukon, and swelter in the sun of the Southland. He may follow the
trails of his forefathers, or venture far in the maze of the future. On
the Magic Carpet, given by those who can vwrite, he may learn and love
and live life vividly and know his fellow men. Surely, he who seeks sur-
cease from sorrow, he who Wishes to forget the petty round of life, owes
a debt to the writer who grants him all of this.
The garner of knowledge finds from the pen of the author all the
A M progress and philosophy which have come down from the minds of the wise
bl men. The base of our vaunted civilization rests upon that which is stored
1 ' in books. The men who will, can drink from the fount of wisdom and take
T ' a part for his own.
2 I Other writers bring to us the happenings of the world and tell of the
5 T strife of man with nature, and the war of man with man. They bring the
i li joy and sorrow of mankind forth for all to see, and at the same time
I mould the sentiment of a nation.
1 . The writer and his books are the great civilizers. Anyone who has
f had any dealings with a small boy will admit that he becomes civilized
T , when he becomes interested in readingg when he discovers the fascina-
Q Q tion in a good book. Reading is second only to experience, for it is built
1 H upon the experience of others. He who reads, absorbs the culture which
Q ' has slowly been acquired in the past.
Q Writers write-some write well and others poorly, and a very few
it write greatly. All writers have much power over human kind, and they
must wisely wield this power if our race is to profit by them. So, thank
the writer who can write well, and encourage him, for better books will
ffg 3 help to bring about a better race of men.

3 i Music, someone has said, is the fourth need of mang food, clothing, 5
L l shelter-then music. "Nonsense," says the practical man, "I have lived fifty ll
is years, built up a fortune, and I don't suppose I have given six hours to .5
QU music in all my life." His attitude, however, proves nothing. How much U
' richer and better his life might have been had music been admitted to it.
i . "The man who hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord ,
of sweet sounds, is fit for treason, stratagems and spoils," wrote Shake- lg
l speare. While this may be an exaggeration, it is nevertheless true that ,Q
,f music should have a real part in every life. The greater part of the time l
ill, of most people is given to material things-to the struggle for a comfort- 9
" able livelihood. Folks, therefore, need an element which can inspire and
lift the mind above the sordid things to a larger life!
3593 The obligation of the State toward public education has been accepted ,
V since the time of Thomas J eierson. Almost every state in the Union has 34
3 enacted compulsory education laws. An examination of the present day lf'
Q school curriculum will convince anyone that music is a part of this edu- l'
I l cation. Music is no longer a special subject. The Research Bulletin of
f y the National Education Association shows that music is alloted practi- f,
j 5 cally the same amount of time as spelling. More than 9571 of our cities .5
5 and most of our large towns and villages set aside a part of the daily Q
program for music in the grades. A recent survey of the status of music Q
Q in 354 colleges and universities, show that 78W of these institutions credit tg

Q 1 of the curriculum in the elementary, secondary and collegiate schools of 'gg
' 1 the United States. ll,
Our Lorain County Schools have made splendid progress in music
during the past few years, and each succeeding year has found increased
interest and greater response. Patrons and school officials will not be satis-

i 'T Space will not permit a description of the work in music as carried on 9
2 in the various school of Lorain County. A survey of this work proves, is T
. j however, that our pupils are interested in music from many angles and our
3 " supervisors are industriously trying to satisfy this hunger in a versatile It
g Qi manner. Besides the regular work in the grades, musical organizations T, 1
I of various kinds have been formed in the junior a11d senior high schools. E. 2
i i There seems to be an especial interest this year in instrumental music, rl '
I 5 with the splendid result that bands and orchestras are springing into ex- H
. I istence like magic. .
These young folks are studyng good music, too. One chorus sings .
l. "Lovely Appear" from the Redemption by Gounod, another-such cantatas 5
f i as "The Building of the Ship," and "The Man Without a Country." An
orchestra reports it repertoire to include the "William Tell Overture" and I
g E "Poet and Peasant."
A list of musical organizations to be found is as follows: high school
orchestras, junior high school orchestras, high school band, high school
chorus, junior high schoo lchorus, boys' glee club, girls' glee club, male 'If
quartet, girls' octet, elementary school chorus, violin quartette, and kitchen
4 kabinet orchestra. The following list of operettas which have been given l
VW recently in the county furnishes a splendid list for future reference: Love l U

Lorain County Athletics
Iiiglsicssi ' O 1
It has only been recently that inter-scholastic athletics have occupied
an important place on the program of so many schools in Lorain County.
Up to this time it has been mostly confined to several of the larger schools
Where the size of the student body and building facilities warranted.
However, with the centralization of schools over the county and the
advent of so m-any new school buildings with modern gymnasiums, the
above conditions have changed so that now there is a county Wide interest
in athletics with practically every school competing. Some of these
schools were members of the Ohio High School Athletic Association and
were bound by its rules, While others had no hard and fast rules by which
to govern themselves. The need of some organized control was quite
evident and resulted in the formation of a County League for the school
year 1923-24. This league was composed of the majority of the schools
of the county and functioned very Well during the basket-ball and track
In the fall of 1924 "The Lorain County Athletic Association" was
made a permanent organization, with its membership open to every high
school under county supervision. One of the big steps taken at this time
was the adoption of the rules of the Ohio High School Athletic Associa-
tion as a means of guidance in all county athletic contests. Each school
now knows what rules and standards are in use in the other schools and
schools of about the same size are placed on an equal basis. It is gratify-
ing to note that this year eleven of the members of the "Lorain County
Athletic Association" have also joined the Ohio High School Athletic As-
sociation, and it is to be hoped that the time is not far distant which will
see every Lorain county school a member of that Association.
The control of the county association has been placed in the hands
of an Executive Board of Control consisting of five members elected from
the principals and superintendents of the county. They hold office for
two years, two members being elected in the "even years" and three mem-
bers in the "odd" years. This board has authority to settle disputes aris-
ing between members of the association and the control of athletics in
general throughout the county.
It is not the intent or duty of the county board to interfere in any
wfay with the local management of High School Athletics except as they
relate to other schools. Its chief aim is the promotion of clean inter-
scholastic athletics, the maintaining of a high standard of scholarship
among athletes, and the development ofthe right type of manhood and
Womanhood among the boys and girls of our county.

One H-zlndrczl and Eighty-Two
The major sport for the girls of the county is basketball. This year
an attempt was made by the County Athletic Board to eliminate some of
the strenuousness of the game by increasing the number of players from
five to six and using a divided floor. This probably tended to slow up
several of the veteran teams who were accustomed to playing together
under straight boys' rules, but on the whole it worked out satisfactorily and
removed some of' the objectional features from the game, while at the
same time permitting a game to be played which was interesting from the
standpoint of the spectator.
Very few of the Class A schools put a regular varsity team on the
floor, confining themselves mostly to inter-class basketball. This permitted
a far greater number of the girls to participate in the sport and in some
cases there was a very marked rivalry between the class teams. It remained
for the Class B girls to put ona race which attracted county-wide at-
tention. In the Western Section, Henrietta had a comparatively easy time
in landing first place by meeting each of her rivals in two games and ending
the season without defeat.
ln the Eastern section the race was closer as there were two
teams of almost equal strength. The honors, however, were for Belden
when she twice defeated the Avon girls, county champions for the past two
years. This is all the more significant since the Avon girls have won 45 out
of their 48 high school games in the last three years. As Henrietta and
Belden were the only undefeated teams in their respective sections, the
county title was decided by a series of three games between these two
schools. Belden emerged victorious from this series and won the right
l Q to hold the beautiful Haserodt Trophy for one year.

Junior High School Athletics
A- K' QQ?
A I Physical training occupied an important place in the programs of the '
5 Q junior high schools throughout the county. There were regular classes in p
A I physical education which had as their aim the correction of physical defects 3
f p as well as developments of the body. These courses were under the direc- g 1
Q I tion of the various coaches and were compulsory. The exercises were I w
Q O chosen so as not to exact too great a tax upon the strength of pupils of the
f F junior high age. '
j In addition to the purely corrective exercises various games were used. '
p i Volley-ball and indoor and playground baseball were probably the most f
T widely used. As a result of this work many of the pupils became very f
5 proficient at these games and quite a few of the schools could boast of
1 teams which could put up quite a game, even against the older pupils of the ,
Q senior high school. Both boys and girls took part in this type of work l
up and the results in general were greatly beneficial. lx
A great number of the junior high schools entered a volley-ball tourna- 33
ment which was won by Grafton while Belden came out victorious in the
at playground ball tournament. .
p Highland and Brookside junior high schools played out a complete
t e basket-ball schedule while many of the other schools, engaging in but few
interscholastic games, emphasized inter-class games. This training ac- .gg
quainted the boys and girls with the fundamentals of the game and assured Q.-a
QL? these schools of a wealth of material for their regular senior high teams in V'
T the future. 1
A Junior High Tournament was held at Ridgeville under the super-
vision of the County Athletic Board. Many of the schools were repre-
7 1 sented and considerable interest aroused. Most of the games of the tourna- 5
L l ment were very close, some requiring overtime periods. Brookside won i f
3 4 the tournament by defeating Avon Lake and returned home the proud f 5
I possessors of the silver loving cup presented by the County Association. 5

From the beginning of education there has been controversy between
two schools of learning, one advocating the practical and the other, the
culturalg the first, training for some definite life work, the other for life
itself. A glance suffices to show that the ideal situation is one in which
a proper balance is preserved between these extremes. In other words,
we must train for citizenship but the youth must be able to make a liveli-
hood: and at the same time We do not want mere workmen but good citi-
zens as well.
In pursuing this ideal we have introduced such practical coursesias
domestic science and manual training. These courses are given in practi-
cally every school of high school rank in the country. The accompanying
cuts will give you some idea of the work carried on in some of the schools,
though by no means all.
Domestic Science, as the name implies, is the science of the home. In
most schools this is directed into two fields, cooking and sewing. In some
cases a separate course of each is given while in others one semester is
devoted to each. The course is required of all freshmen girls. The equip-
ment is very adequate in all cases. To add practicability to the courses
luncheons are given teachers, boards of education, etc. Increased incen-
tive is supplied by the prizes awarded for the most excellent sewing pro-
duced in the class by the Lorain County Fair Association.
In many places we find hot lunches supplied by the domestic science
class. This excellent work provides from one warm dish to an entire meal
in different schools each day. The need for this is apparent as most of
the children are brought several miles in buses to a cenralized school,
necessitating eating cold lunches if warm ones are not furnished at
school. The cost is very small. In many places we find the Pa.rent-Teach-
er Association cooperating with the domestic science department by furn-
ishing equipment, cooking supplies, and in some places assisting with the
preparation. Hot lunches are served at Camden, Brownhelm, Avon, Hen-
rietta, Belden, Penfield and South Amherst. Preparations have been made
for them in 'Columbia for the next year. All of the above mentioned
schools have domestic science and in addition Brookside and Ridgeville
All schools reporting domestic science also have manual training. This
is, in' reality, in most places wood-working. It is, however, supplemented
with mechanical drawing in several schools. The largest class reported is
at Ridgeville where 51 boys are enrolled. In most of the schools we find
10 to 15 boys on the average. Adequate equipment is provided in every case
and material progress is noticeable. Much of the work is of a calibre to
be proud of. It produces proficiency in handling tools, precision, patience,
etc as well as the satisfaction of making finished products with one's
hands Vocational education has earned and will retain its place in our
progressive high school curricula

Extra-Curricular Activities ,ig
rf The regular study of textbooks is now supplemented in all our high ills
2 schools by many outside activities. The beneficial effect of this is self- i i
1 evident. These things supply the variety so necessary to motivate what 5
5 1 seems sometimes to be dull and prosaic material of our curricula. Some 5
Q of the most notable examples of these extra-curricular activities are those I f
1 which follow. ' f

' Student Councils lg
f ' With the advent of these student boards of control, advisory in most QI, E
if , cases, wie find democracy introduced into our school system to accord with ,
15 , our democratic government. The justice as well as the practicability of 'ff
If Q this is apparent. Autocratic school systems accord not with democracies.
ig but with autocracies.
' The rapidity with which they have been adopted throughout the
r' county is quite astonishing. In looking over the dates of formation, We
A find that Grafton, Henrietta and Columbia were pioneers in this worth-
' ' While field. Each of these schools organized their council in 1923. The -f
year 1924 added Ridgeville, Belden, Camden and Avon Lake. South Am- ,
herst has just organized such a group in 1925. I 5?
Jw These groups are composed of students. The size varies from five pg 1.
mg members up to twenty-one, the usual number being five or nine. The coun- if '
cil always contains a faculty member, usually the principal. The duties
reported vary in different schools. In some we find them disciplinary, aid- i
fi' ing the school oliicials in preserving a well ordered school. Some designate .tg
5 .ly the council as an honor society, setting up standards of strict honesty in 11:5
3 1 school work and meting out punishment to the offender. In others, We
1 If find the Council active in arranging the school calendar, and caring and T9
, arranging for school fiances. Again, we find the aim of school neatness 11'
, and assisting the teachers in supervised study and playground control. In
9 most schools this is carried on by occasional meetings, but some meet as
'g gl often as once a week. ff
in An uninformed person may be skeptical as to the practicability of this g
wig, type of school control, but the experience of those who work with it is '
.-'V unanimously favorable. The same deliberations over school policies which ,
Qui many of these councils have, quickly cures one of prejudice against it. IV
si . The reasonableness of their decisions is remarkable. A wford in this con- in ,
.1 nection may not be amiss. The decrees of a council are mgerely advices, it gg
is an advisory and not an executive body. Criticism of the idea often aris- t
gif es from a misunderstanding in this respect. Whether or not their advice 1
is followed is left to the discretion of the principal, though as has been
said before, it seldom becomes necessary to disregard it.
The Keynote of this organization is the promotion of a spirit of co-
operation between students and teachers. The aim of each is the same, ii
vis: the education of the child. A superior school spirit is aroused by these 5 2
1 Q councils, which cements friendships and mutual understanding.

,Epi Latin Clubs ,.
J . ' '
These clubs, as their name implies, have been formed for the purpose 'iff
5 of promoting interest in Latin. This project is an excellent one and is Q
1 ,, sure to bear most beneficial fruits. It is a movement in accord with the -
? i ideas of the Classical League of America Whose purpose is to create a new
jp interest in the life and writings of the early Roman and Greek times. 'Q
'L ' The one at Wellington is called the S. P. Q. R. It has as its members the i
'T Latin students who are doing above average work in Latin. Besides the
creating of new interest in the language, it also stresses the extending of
the use of it. Avon calls its club of this type "The Roman Training
24 Camp." They meet every two weeks. Here posters are made depicting
i 4 Roman life and showing our dependence on those early times for our en-
, joyment. The Latin Club of LaGrange is of recent origin, 1925 in fact. xl
It comprises the students in first and second Latin-15 in number. They
5 have produced the play, "The Roman School." They meet once a month. .I
it The Practical Government Club j
Another club growing directly out of the work in the curriculum is rim
Eg? the Government Club which we find at Columbia. An effort is made in
' this connection to train the pupil for future efficiency in citizenship. is
Problems which.come up either in the discusson in the Democracy Class f
, I or which arise in the community are discussed at some length and to gig
L43 very helpful conclusions. All of the members of the Problems of Demo- gf
cracy class belong.
Camp Fire Girls

f Q The name of this organization is the rather difficult one of Ta-Ta-
I Pochon. This, however, when translated is very worthwhile, being "Stick- f
g together." The girls are very enthusiastic over the success of the club Q l
Q 6 and its benefits. They camp and do social service work as well.

I' ii A need that each one of us feels is being ably cared for at South Am- fl
A A herst by this group-the need of putting out tickets, programs, etc. All
g , of this work is done in the school by boys who are trained for the work. ji
' T 'l'here are 3 printers who have 7 apprentices. All members must be from 'Q
i the Senior High School. So far this year, the club has paid for its Printing '
I Press which cost 37500. 1
F Girl Reserves fl,
-,L This group is located at Wellington and is a branch of the Junior 'L
gg' Y. W. C. A. Its purpose is the welfare of girls. It has 53 members all of
the Senior High School. This activity is 5 years old and has served as a 3 5
ff? means of bringing girls together into closer fellowship and has fired up VT
, school spirit. This is a field that seems woefully unused throughout the gif
i 5 county considering its excellence and the benefits to be derived from it. it

fir? Perhaps the most important and far reaching development in the edu-
cational work of Lorain County within recent years has been the organi- j I
g s zation of the Parent-Teacher Associations. It is important not so much 1 I
L I because of the present accomplishments, although they have been many, Q I
1 but rather because of what such organizations mean for the future of I I
I 5 education. The work is new in the county, only a few dating prior to 1920. I I
I I In addition to the local associations in practically every school, there A I
! I is a County Council of Parent-Teacher Associations with which all local I '
I associations are affiliated. The Council was organized in 1921 and has '
If I been of great service throughout the county in coordinating the work of the
. local associations and in promoting acquaintance among those interested I I
, in P. T. A. work. Practically all local associations are affiliated with the
3 I state organization and many with the national. The total membership I
L I exceeds 2,000. I 3
I I Lack of space prevents listing in detail the activities of the individual I
I I associations. We must content ourselves with the mere naming of each I
I I association, giving the date of its founding, the name of its present presi-
'YM dent, and a statement of its aims and most important accomplishments.

of music but through a regrettable error the copy was omitted and only
their last name given with their photographs on page 167
Mr. Moore supervises music in the schools of Brownhelm Camden
Henrietta and South Amherst, spending two days each week at South
Amherst and one day in each of the other schools. In these schools music
occupies a prominent place on the program. An outstanding feature of
his work has been the development of orchestras and by combining them
he has made a beginning of an all county orchestra which bids fair to in-
clude every school in the county. In addition many operettas' have been
given which have attracted wide attention.
Miss Reynolds supervises music in the schools of Avon, Columbia,
Belden, Grafton and Ridgeville, spending two days each Week at Ridge-
ville, one day each at Avon' and Columbia and one-half day each at Belden
This is the first year for music in this group of schools except Belden
and while the results are not so noteworthy as in the schools where it has
been given for a longer period, they are sufficient to amply justify the
effort. Beginnings have been made in the development of orchestras.

ASHLAND COLLEF E
EDWIN ELMORE JACOBS M. Sc. Ph. D
ASHLAND COLLEGE was founded in the year 1878 and therefore will cele
brate her Golden jubilee three years hence. She has had almost a half century of
useful and distinguished history. Co-educational Christian and holding high xholastic
standards from the very beginning she has never ceased cherishing these ideals
The following courses have always been a part of the work and have been mod- W
ernized from time to time, thus making them conform to the most approved standards.
Q, Arts and Sciences, Divinity, Normal Qtwo and four year coursesj, Piano, Vocal,
: ' Violin, Expression and Physical Education. The college cources lead to the usual
5 degrees. Especial attention is directed to the two year college normal course, leading
aim' to the degree of Bachelor of Education, the first two years of which are identical with
the regular Two-Year Normal Course.
A full athletic program is maintained including football, basketball, and baseball.
A Six County Basketball Tournament is held annually the first Friday in March.
ig? The general success of the athletic program has not been surpassed in the State within
the past five years by any college of similar rank. ,
The present total annual enrollment is over 650, distributed as follows: Arts and
Sciences, 3395 Summer, 1924, 2325 Special Departments, 85. A very gratifying fea-
, ture of this enrollment is that it has had a steady and healthy increase within the past
,gr l Taking intoaccount, the limited enrollment, the character of the students ad-
lfj mitted, the strength of the faculty C representing Chicago University, Princeton, Har-
vard, Clark, Michigan, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Ohio State and Lehighj, and the repu- '-
tation which Ashland sustains relative to the success of her Alumni, Ashland College -1-
' is Worthy of very careful consideration by those who are contemplating going to col- ..
51 lege. All courses have full State recognition. If interested in this growing and suc- ff
I' cessful Ohio college, address the President.

A. H. CAMPBELL
A Leading Official of the Wheeling and Lake Erie Railway Company 3 ,
Made His Preparation at The Oberlin Business College i
A little over twenty years ago A. H. Campbell was a farmer boy in one of the hill
counties of southern Ohio. Like many another country boy he was anxious to succeed in life, 4 "
but located away out in the country on a farm many miles from any city or town, he did not 1 1
know quite how to go about it. 1 3
He had heard of several young men who went to Oberlin for a business training and had ig
succeeded and decided that he would follow in their footsteps. Little did he realize that the 2
day he made up his mind to go to Oberlin was to prove a turning point in his life and that in 3 Q
twenty years' time he would be occupying a leading official position in one of the great railway
systems of the country. l
This sclfool has been a stepping-stone to thousands of ambitious men and women who, like I
Mr. Campbell, had the energy, courage, and faith in themselves to make the effort. Young intl?
people who want to be succeeding twenty years from now must be willing to make the start. "EQ
The pathway of life is strewn with countless thousands of failures, men and women of good E5
ability, who lacked faith in themselves and who, consequently, were not willing to launch out ff'
and make the start.
The Oberlin Business College is said to be the only business college in Ohio which enrolls
only high school graduates, and as a result it is a vastly better school for high school graduates ljl A
than schools where many of the students have had little or no high school training whatever. 575'

The Cash Value of Education
Many boys around the high school age feel
the urge of "getting a job", and ask just
what it would mean to them in terms of mon-
ey to remain in school. The following fig-
ures should do much to advance the cause of
education among those who demand a mater-
ial reason for every act in life.
The cash value of a four-year high school
course is S33,000. The boy who spends his
four years in high school actually is earning
358,250 a year for himself during these years,
while the boy who went to work after leav-
ing the elementary grades earns an average
of S500 yearly during these four years that
he might have been in school. A college or
technical education in terms of actual money
is worth just S72,000. Each of these four
years means exactly 318,000 to the student.
The statistics have been compiled by Dean
Everett VV. Lord of the College of Business
Administration of Boston University. He finds
that the average boy with just an elementary
school education begins work at fourteen and
reaches his maximum earning capacity at
thirty. At the age of sixty, he has earned only
S45,000, his highest salary being around
S1,200. The boy who finishes high school
starts to work at eighteen and at the age of
sixty has earned S78,000, or 333,000 more
than the other boy. His maximum earning
capacity was at the age of forty with an in-
come of SS2,200. The student who completes
his technical course at college starts to work
at twenty-two but he does not reach his max-
imum earning capacity until he is sixty, but
this is 36,000 and the total to this time is
S150,000 or nearly twice that nf a high school
These figures should be available to every
boy of high school age that he might see the
real cash value of an education, and aban-
don all ideas of discontinuing school at an
early age.-The "Lightning" Line.
The above photograph, taken in Ridgeville High School shows the equipment selected,
namely, Fay-Egan "Lightning," manufactured at Cincinnati, Ohio, and accepted through-
out the world as the standard training equipment.

five years". This is the statement by which J. V. Hill of Oberlin sums up the
remarkable progress of his business. The courtesy and kindly interest which the cus-
tomer feels upon entering this store has added materially to the success of this Oberlin
elothier and brings back alumni of the Oberlin College year after year to buy their
suits from the store which pleased in the past.
College men from this section of Ohio find what they want at J. V. Hill's.
Novelty clothing takes a prominent place alongside of the more conservative
lines and the crowd of shoppers to be seen almost any day at Hill's testifies to their
Besides high grade ready-made clothing and quality tailoring, a full line of
trunks and hand luggage is always available at this store.
Mr. Hill has spent his entire life in Oberlin. He is a firm believer in the
schools and school advertising. We believe that those desirous of purchasing presents
that will please and give service for commencements, birthdays and other occasions,
will find what they want at Hill's.

a moment as if undecided as to which department would be likely
to have the article she sought to buy and finally approached a floor-

I Sorry madame, ' he replied, 'but I don t believe we have such a
thing in stock. However, if you can give us about two or three days,
We'll try and get you some."
"Well, if I can have them by Saturday noon-sure-that will be '15
Saturday was just three days away. Not very much time in which L
to secure goods through ordinary wholesale channels. But true to the -
lady's word, she came back to the store Saturday noon for the toy R
' balloons she had ordered. And by means of the extra effort we had I

This true happening was unusual in our day's businessg our com-

A customer recently remarked in purchasing a full set of cord tires. "I don't
care whose name is on these tires so long as your guarantee is back of them."
Mr. Patterson, Branch Manager, who has been

VVhistle, the certified drink and Choc-au-lait, the chocolate-milk beverage, are I
the headlines of the eighteen offerings of the Lorain Whistle Bottling Company to
tempt the palates of the thirsty of Lorain County. This company is the exclusive dis- 4'
tributor of both these drinks in this district. "Certified" Whistle has the approval
W of the Good Housekeeping Bureau of Foods, Sanitation and Health, conducted by the
li. Good Housekeeping Magazine. Q
if Choc-au-lait is a new comer to our midst, arriving in January of this year. No
'MA other drink of recent years has met with such instant approval. Already the Whistle
Bottling Company has increased its output of this drink alone to 800 cases per week ntl.,
'i if and the demand is steadily increasing. This drink is made from Borden's evaporated 3.5511
skim milk, Hershey Cocoa and cane sugar, with certain preservatives. lt is the first
successful chocolate-milk drink to be offered to the general public.
Weekly delivery by truck to all parts of the county insures a fresh supply of ,- i
beverages at all times and enables the Whistle Bottling Company to reduce the preser-
vative content of their product to the minimum.
"Quality and service alone have built up our business," is the watchword of C.
A. Zurcher, Secy.-Treas. and Gen. Manager of this growing business. He has been
a bottler of carbonated beverages since 1903. Other officers of the concern are John
Zurcher, President and Walter D. Graber, Vice-President. These men always show 'gif' ai keen interest in our schools. Arnold Zurcher, an honored graduate of Oberlin E
. College, is the son of John Zurcher and a former employee of the company. Oscar
' k Zurcher, another son, is a junior in the Henrietta High School.

Making Money - And Keeping It
A Message for Boys and Girls
Most boys and girls spend from eight to sixteen years in grammar
schools, high schools and colleges, learning about the better things of
life, and how to earn the money with which to buy those things.
Little if any of that time is spent in learning how to manage that
money after it is earned.
Don't grow up Without training in managing money. Such a course
is at hand every time you step into your Cleveland Trust Bank at
Let that bank become a university of finance for you. Learn how
customers are counselled against the wily stock promoter, shown how
to invest safely, told of the benefits of a will, and helped in home-
buying and business problems. 5
Finally, you will see how the bank aids people in making trust
agreements to conserve the earnings of a life-time, make declining
years carefree and insure the Well-being of their families after
they are gone.
