Those who plan school buildings must think of things which were not dreamed of twenty or thirty years ago as belonging to a school. We now make pro- vision for school doctors and nurses, play- grounds, school shops, school kitchens, voca- tional advisers and departments which are like the businesses which we see in the world out- side. All these have come to help the boy and girl to get a good start in life and to end the waste which is sure to follow a wrong be- ginning. Between the ages of fourteen and sixteen we should begin to work for the place we want to win. When we finish the elementary school we have the High School before us and many special kinds of schools. In the High School we find several courses open for our choice. ln all these secondary schools we find keen in- terest in the Colleges which High School grad- uates may go to or to the great professional schools or in the business openings which are ready for the young graduate to attend. It is a bad thing for one to drift and no one takes proper advantage of his school days without some aim as to the part he will play in later life. While yet young the girl or boy should set a goal and a high one which they intend to gain, and with great determination and keen interest they will be able to achieve success. Businesses, professions and trades are un- dergoing great changes and there has never been a time when life work planning is so needed as it is today. The boys and girls who merely drift along and at last Without any preparation find a job are not building a character at all. Developing plans and ideals for future life and service, then, is one of the greatest activities which home and school can encourage. -Doris G. Phillips. N o . U It was in 1916 in the old white school building that the Class of '28 began its career. Miss Champion was the teacher of its 35 mem- bers, five of whom are still in the class. Those five are: Emerson Gibbs, Shirley Marvin, Howard Maloney, Ruth Cleland and Mildred Bailey. Doris Phillips, coming from Kins- man, joined the class in the' Second Grade where they had Miss Lois Satterlee the first semester and Miss Hufnagle the last semes- ter as teachers. It went from the Second Grade in the long, white building to the Third Grade in the upstairs of the first building. Miss Vernie Perry was the teacher there. In the Fourth G1'ade Frances Miner, coming from Wayne, became a member of the class. The class did not change rooms or teachers this year. The fifth year was spent downstairs in the same building with Miss Poulson as teacher, who, during the year, married Robert Thorne. Before the end of the year she re- signed and Miss Elizabeth Smith took her place. Emerson Gibbs was here only one month of this year on account of going to Arizona. The sixth year the class moved to the old brick building. Here Oiva Arnio from Ashtabula, Forrest Cobb from Williamsfield I +o4+4++o +++eo+ +++r+0 0 and the teacher, Miss Olive Reynolds, joined it. Ruth Cleland was not with the class at all this year on account of illness. She was tu- tored at home by Miss Gelvin. During the following vacation the old brick building was torn down. The new building was not completed by the following September, so the class spent the Seventh Grade in the Council rooms. Howard Maloney was here only two months of this year, spending the re- mainder of the year in California. Mildred Bailey went to Williamsfield this year and did not come back for several years. The next fall the class was in the new building for the first time. Mr. Martin was the superintend- ent and Mrs. Martin was the principal. Here the new members were: Milton Martin, Loleta McCormick, Stella Uehlinger and Thelma Brooks. Mrs. Mary Gelvin was the teacher. When Freshmen the new teachers were: Miss Sponseller, Miss Baldwin, Miss Hall, Mr. Cercle and Miss Hoover. The new members that year were: Duncan McCombs, Grace Myers, Virginia Ballentine and LaDell Mead. This year the class was organized. Ruth Cleland was elected president, Emerson Gibbs, vice president, Milton Martin, secre- tary and treasurer.

But this does not mean that they are "little and not big," for remember Napoleon who was very small of stature was one of the most powerful monarchs of all time. ' This year the members have taken a keener interest in athletics, perhaps due to the fact that Mr. Hicks, the home room teacher, is the boys' athletic coach. Three of the girls. LaDell Mead, Frances Miner and Mildred Bailey, were members of the varsity Basket- ball team, while Milton Martin, Forrest Cobb and Emerson Gibbs were right hand men on the boys' varsiety Basketball team. The girls' class team played in the final inter-class game. losing the pennant to the Eighth Graders. In the mid-season, Volleyball was enjoyed by the pupils remaining at school at noon. The Baseball teams also were composed of both boys and several girls from this group. Four members of the graduates are faith- ful players in the band and orchestra, name- lyg Loleta McCormick, accompanist of the or- chestra, also a cello playerg Shirley Marvin, mellophoneg Emerson Gibbs, saxophoneg Mil- ton Martin, cornet. "The Harmony Se1'e- naders" have furnished several interesting musical programs in chapel throughout the year. Emerson Gibbs and Ruth Cleland were members of the debate team, while Doris Phillips and Shirley Marvin were participants in the declamation contest. Richard King rep- resented Andover in the County Oratorical Contest at Orwell this term. Prof. Martin thinks that the Senior girls must be securing enough finery to get mar- ried instead of graduating from the number of excuses he has written for the last two months for shopping expeditions. Loleta McCormick is given honorable men- tion for having a perfect record for attend- ance and no tardiness during her four years of High School. Frances Miner was chosen the most popu- lar girl in the school at the school carnival in March. Shirley Marvin has secu1'ed much experi- ence as a sub teacher in the grades this year. Mildred Bailey has filled the position of oflice girl this year, a position quite educa- tional. Although there are several in the class who have been on the honor roll at various times during the course, the ones who survive as "honor students" are Ruth Cleland, Shir- ley Marvin and Mildred Bailey. On May 18 the class gave its play, "Mrs, Jims' Romance," to a large appreciative audi- ence. Much credit and praise is given to Mr. Hass and the cast of characters for the splendid performance which they rendered. All of the class participated in this either in the cast or as entertainment between acts. SOCIETY On the first Friday night of November, 1927, the High School gave the Freshmen and the newcomers their first taste of society in A. H. S. The evening began with stunts and games on the lawn, then the much puzzled and frightened Freshmen were invited by the Seniors into the audito1'ium. They were as- sembled on the stage before King Richard. who sentenced the culprits to pay for their childhood pranks. Later the subdued were served refreshments, and all departed, tired. yet happy. The next event in the social life of the Seniors was a Hallowe'en party held at the home of Myron Dain in Pierpont. Everyone reported a good time. At the beginning of Basketball season a g1'oup from Andover High attended the an- nual athletic banquet held in Rock Creek. On February 13 the Seniors and friends. mostly from the Junior Class, journeyed to Warren and had dinner at the Park Hotel and American Restaurant. Later they attended Robbins Theater. Those who went with Ker- mit Lewis were furnished with entertaining army stories. Wednesday evening, March 7, 1928, the teachers of the entire school gave a St. Pat- rick's party in honor of the boys' and girls' Basketball teams and their coaches. The group was divided into two parts, "The Mul- ligans" and "Cas.sidies." Contests were car- ried out between the two groups as entertain- ment. At a late hour all assembled in the lunch room where refreshments were served. Superintendent Martin gave a fitting talk and presented letters to those who had been faith- ful to the teams. Upon departing all wished next year's Basketball teams a successful year. On Friday evening, May 11, the Seniors and High School Faculty were entertained at Shirley Marvin's. The fore part of the eve- ning was spent in playing progressive "Bingo" Then games and music amused the guests for awhile. A two-course luncheon was served by the hostess. The guests de- parted at a late hour, proclaiming it to be one of the most enjoyable of the Senior parties. The Senior Class and the "upstairs" fac- ulty of A. H. S. were entertained by the Juniors at a party held in Crystal Lake Club House, Saturday evening, May 19, 1928. Dancing, Cards and games were the main features of the evening. Everyone spent an enjoyable time. The Girls' Glee Club held a dance at Crystal Lake. The Linesville orchestra fur- nished the music for the event. --Stellar U elzlinger.

As the crystal slowly turned before our wondering eyes, we saw the old school building in Andover, and consequently the next thing we saw was our old schoolmates. who had graduated in 1928. The first person we noticed in the crystal was our old friend, Mildred Bailey, now Mrs. Allen Britton. She was seated on the bank of a beautiful lake, known as Crystal Lake, named for its sparkling waters. This is where their summer home is located. We see Myron Dain, who is still living on Main street in his old home town in Pier- pont, where it seems he gets all his inspira- tions for the wonderful poems which he writes. Doris Phillips, the cut-up of our old class is now the Martha Lee in the Cleve- land News and her answers to the lovelorn have set many a heart at ease. Miss La Dell Mead is spending her time in Washington State, where she is employed in the Harry Gray Sawmill Co. as private secretary. Forrest Cobb and Oiva Arnio, partners and schoolmates, are now seen. They have made a great success in the electrical world and are at the present time in Australia wiring "Uncle Bim's" mansion, which he in- tends to leave to little Chester. Ah! The misty whiteness changes. Its Broadway of New York. A beautiful sign is hanging over a shop of two noted dancing teachers. On the sign in golden letters are the names Grace Myers and Duncan Mc- Combs. The front entrance is crowded with lesson seekers. The scene changes. A large group of people can be seen crowded before a huge aeroplane. On the outspread wings are the words "Spirit of Cherry Valley." Nearby standing on a newly-erected platform is Richard King, who is astonishing all the world with his brilliant orations. All is white and still, the wind blows, snow falls fast. In Alaska near the Yukon river is a small school house, with Shirley Marvin as a missionary teacher for the un- fortunate children of the cold north. She appears to be receiving a check of 31.49 for the month's salary. Another vision comes into view, it is Mrs. Kermit Lewis, formerly Miss Loleta McCormick. She is in Poland with her hus- band where they are giving music lessons to the interested Polish children. They are talking this evening of coming back to Padanaram, Where they are going to give a grand opera next July. The scene changes and we see our old home town. There is Emerson Gibbs work-- ing in the Citizen office. He writes scandal, society and sport news for the Sunday edi- tion of the Andover Citizen. He is gaining world-wide fame for his work. Again the crystal turns and we now sec a picturesque little town in France. There in a fashionable French language school. We notice a familiar face, it -is Virginia Ballentine, who has been studying French and who now intends to come back to Amer- ica and teach in Sweet Briar College, lo-- cated at Leon, Ohio. Oh? What is that? Such a confusion. We can hardly tell who is who. Ah, I see. there is a sign explaining the cause of the noise. The sign reads: Stop! Look! Listen! Tonight at 8:00 p. m. Maloney Sz Martin will present to the people of this fair city a most astonishing, astounding, bewildering array of talent ever exhibited in this state. Feats of strength, skill and daring will be performed by Maloney. Dr. Martin will tell you how to get Well and look well by using his famous: GINGER JULEP FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! Cheap at half the price Ah! There is Stella Uehlinger, the belle and the smallest of our class. She has estab- lished a tiny but much used beauty parlor at the summer resort by the Shenango river. The river does not look as it did, it has been made into a fashionable bathing beach. There is Thelma Brooks, smiling as usual. She began her career by being private secre- tary to the Emperor of Japan. But the crystal shows her now as a manicurist to his wife, Wangle Hong Lee. They are in a beautiful garden with cherry trees all around them. We now see a great wide space. It is a desert. The Sahara. There is a sheik in flowing white robes. He is entering his harem. Goodness! There is Frances Miner. She must be the sheik's favorite lady, for shc wears the privilege crown. The crystal is showing us its last pic- ture. It must be fame, for the globe is in brilliance. The polite girl with the black hair started out to be an ofiice girl. But in some manner gained her way in to politics, and we believe she is going to be the first woman president in the United States. We recognize her as Ruth Cleland. As we leave, we thank the crystal for showing us so plainly the lives of our old school friends, and we are pleased that they have all been successful in their various walks of life. Amen. -Stella Uehlinger. Frances Miner.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY As I was rummaging through an unused drawer in my desk the other day I came upon a bundle of pictures, some of them yellow with age. What memories they brought of the days when the illustrious members of the Class of '29 were bashful little boys and giggling little girls. Looking at our first grade picture the first person to catch my eye was our president, Betty Bishop. Even at the start she looked the leader she has proven herself to be through all her school life. Advancing further I noticed Geraldine Russell with her golden curls, Thelma Pal- mer with a big hairbow, Alice Peck looking very small and bashful, Nellie Daniels short but plump, Gladys Eastlake with her hands folded primly in her lap, Dorothy Johnson with long black curls and Peggy Clelanfl with an enormous hairbow perched on the side of her head. Who is that little boy who is scowling so fiercely? Why that is our Junior "cut-up," Homer Hall. Near to him is Roy Nelson looking only half of his present six feet of height. That other lit' tle boy with his hair in his eyes is one of our Junior Basketball champs, Walter Warren. I find it hard to recall any but the faces of those who are our classmates today with the exception of our teacher whom we all remember with affection as Miss Loveridge. The Second Grade picture includes the faces of the pupils mentioned above with some notable additions. Those two little boys standing side by side bear a faint re- semblance to our Lefty Parker of basketball fame and Bill Russell, humorous entertainer in English III. The little girl with the bill eyes and pleasant smile is none other than Clover Perry. Standing near is our well- known blond sheik, Clifford Swezey. Our Second Grade teacher, Miss Wright, is now Mrs. Jesse Dart of Andover. Glancing over the Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade pictures I am pleased to note that those people mentioned above are still on the class roll and that some of the other members of the present Junior Class have joined our ranks. I see five little girls whom I recognize as our notable Juniors: Ana Gay, Ruth Richard, Irene Cross, Lucy McClurg and Margaret Paul. There is Ernest Austin and Howard Grey, but who is that little boy who appears so afraid of the camera? Can it be? Sure it is our bass horn player, Ralph Vickery. All honor to Miss Perry and Miss Coulter, who san' us through these hectic years. The camera man failed to arrive during the Sixth and Seventh Grades, but I am able to pick up the threads of our history from our Eighth Grade picture. Lillian Hillyer, David Pellot and William Sevon, who joined our class during the Eighth Grade year re- mained with us only a short time as they moved to other schools. Associated with our memories of our Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Grade school days are those of our teachers, oooaj sro' 6 4 O Miss Edin, Miss White and Miss Sponseller. The next picture brings a rather sad feel- ing as I think of the supreme pride and joy we felt when as "green Freshies" we became members of the High School body. Two new classmates were acquired during our Fresh- man year. They were Floyd Hoover and Paul Tabor. Our teacher, Miss Warren, steered us safely through the trying period of our Freshman days and all too soon we found ourselves posing for our Sophomore picture. This picture is particularly dear to me because it contains the faces of many of our classmates who left us at the close of our Sophomore year. Among those are: Geraldine Russell, Lillian Hillyer, Nellie Daniels and Marion Baker. Roy Huffman, Volly Huffman and Lorain Robertson were the only newcomers in our class during the Sophomore year. We are sorry that Volly was unable to continue with us, but hope that Lorain and Roy will go on and gradu- ate with the Class of '29, No one can ever fill the places in the heart of every member of the Junior Class occupied by those who left but the grief at their loss is lessened a great deal when I look at the Junior Class picture and see the faces of the pupils who joined our class during the year. We won- der now how we ever got along without cheerful Helen McCombs, quiet but friendly Donna Dustman and Wilma Salin, who is always ready to have a good time, to say nothing of Fred Stump, Kenneth McCombs, Manning Leslie, Lawrence Peebles, Alfred Wells and Kosti Luoma. Thoughts of our Sophomore and Junior years will always bring pleasant memories of our teachers, Miss Boord, Miss Whitney, Miss Case, Miss Nelson, Mr. Hicks, Mr. Thompson, Mr. Slater, Mr. Martin, Mr. Dickson and Mr. Moore. 0 JUNIOR NEWS The Junior Class has the largest enroll- ment in the school this year. It is composed of twenty-one boys and fifteen girls, making' a total of thirty-six. This large class is made possible by the new members who en- tered this year from Richmond and Pierpont. The class has had one party this year. The class also is breaking away from the old method of entertaining the Seniors and expect it to be a success. The Junior Class is well represented in the school activities, nearly everyone takes a part in outside work. There are twelve who play in the band and eight in the orches- tra, three on the girls' varsity basketball team and five on the boys' teamg also fivc boys on the baseball team. There are also others who are in the Glee Club, on the de- bating team and work in the office. And those who represent the school in the county field meet.

SOPHOMORE HISTORY In the Freshman team Ralph Wentz and William Thompson entered the group but Iona Arnio, Donald Fish and Gladys Rich- ard withdrew. The room teacher, Mr. Dick- son, resigned and was replaced by Mr. Moore. This year the class has dwindled down to twenty-one members and Bryce Cl'96Sy has joined the ranks. Several from the class belong to the band and orchestra. Several were on the varsity B. B. teams, while others were in the Glee Club. The Biology class organized a "Nature Club." They have had several interesting trips and acquired much knowledge. The class officers are: President, Leroy Todd: vice president, Thurman Marr: sec retary-treasurer, Louise Russell. O SOPHOMORE NEWS The World History class is just beginning to make an extensive study of the World War. They are considering the subject not from the standpoint of the actual fighting that occurred, but are studying the multi- plicity of causes and later expect to give close attention to the results. Realizing that many problems of today arise out of the situations resulting from the war. They are going to study some of the most important of these with particular emphasis as to their relation to our own economic and political problems. Miss Boord attended the opera, "Il Trova- tore" in Cleveland Saturday. The Sophomores were unfortunate in hav- ing a number of "those among the missing" this month. However, la grippe has loosed its hold and everyone is back again with us except Leah Marvin, who is detained at home with scarlet fever. Those on the honor roll this month were Ernest Carr, Roberta Crum, Arda Mason and Irene Reed. Ahem! a hard-boiled class. When the Sophomores had their picture taken, they had the misfortune to have the camera break. Of course one is not insinuating that the class was to blame but the fact still remains that the camera broke while facing this group from room ten.

During the years there has been many new members whom they have always welcomed. They have been unfortunate in losing members this year and the six vacant seats are mute reminders of their loss. Julius Chismar, Howard Williams, Franklin Lehn, Dorothy Weidenhamer, Lyda and Lyla Loe have gone to other places. During election time 'they had many fierce struggles, deciding whether a Democrat or Republican nominee should occupy the chair. Republican Harry Sanko was finally elected president of the class. The vice president was Ruth Hill. Clay Wentz, secretary and treasurer, manages the amazingly large money affairs. Blue and Gold was selected as the class colors. Although they worked hard during the year they have had some pleasure. Their party this year was a "roaring success." Four of the High School teachers accepted an invitation to attend. They had many games during the evening and the refresh- ments proved that the committee worked hard. Best of all, they are only Freshmen. and we can look ahead to three more years of High School work. "They wish you well, Seniors, but do not envy you! Let them look ahead, as Freshmen, to the opportuni- ties of the future. -Mr. Thompson. 0 FRESHMAN NEWS There has been a noticeable change in the atmosphere of the Freshmen room since the warm Spring days have come. The lassies are talking about picking flowers and the boys about fishing. It has not been determined who has caught the largest fish, but Mr. Thompson and Harry Sanko are chief claimants to the honor. Raymond reports "not a nibble." The General Science class has been studying the topic, "The Balance in Nature." In this study it was made plain that most of our common weeds came from Europe, and that American Nature is better if left undis- turbed by some foreign importations. We are planning to have a cake and ice cream social Wednesday evening, May 9, 1928, at the school house. Everybody is to come prepared to have a good time. The Biology class "when do we take a hike?" Mr. Thompson's whereabouts over the week-end was unknown. Those on the honor roll for April were Q Raymond Johnson, Helen Karpiak, Faye Myres, Maud Myres and Frank Robertson. O . EIGHTH GRADE NEWS There have been several things of con- siderable interest to those of us here in the Eighth Grade this year. We were glad when the girls copped for us the Interclass Basket- ball pennant. It helps to show where Andover's future basketball girls are. Our class held a class party in the base- ment of the schoolhouse in March 9. All enjoyed a good time and then lots of eats after the games. Ruth Fitts and Francis Simon repre- sented our room in the grade Spelling con- test. Ruth will represent our school at Jef- ferson in the County contest May 12. Junior Woodworth and Francis Simons represented our room in Arithmetic. They are representing the school in the County contest, too. Field Day events are in style now. Charles French and Winston Silliman being our high jumpers. Herman Austin and Wal- ter French heaving the shot for us. We have two who have a perfect atten- dance for the year. Francis Simon and Har- old Robinson. Four of our class have left us. Joe Geho, Frank T1'oia, Harry Emmerson and Mamie Huffman. Then we have one new member, Harry Petrie, making the total which hopes to be Freshmen next year, 27. For a month our class had a change in the regular course of study. The girls were instructed in sewing by Miss Moore and the boys were given manual training by Mr. Jerome. All seemed to enjoy the change. -Carl G. Jerome, Teacher. o SEVENTH GRADE NEWS The Seventh Grade has enjoyed many activities this year. The girls have had a month of sewing and the boys a month of manual training. A number of the pupils have moved away. We were very sorry to see them go but we wish them success in their new schools. The grade has been having lessons in water coloring and many interesting pictures have been painted by members of the class. During the year a Bird Club was organ- ized and much interest was shown in out- door life. Field glasses were brought and were used extensively to aid them in their study. The class is ahead of other Seventh Grades in all their books. In several they have finished thus taking some of the Eighth Grade work. Q o+ryrer+o++rQ+o+++ooo+ooQ-0 5-0-Q4-0 Q PAGE 10 + 9.4.

O SIXTH GRADE NEWS Last year after specimens of writing were taken, the pupils of room six decided pen- manship must be stressed during the year. They worked faithfully, and the mounted specimens at the end of each quarter showed a progressive improvement. In order to be able to conduct meetings properly a Current Events Club was formed and instructions in parliamentary rules was given. Ofiicers were elected and class busi- ness was carried on in regular order. To add interest to the club work, the class sub- scribed to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Early in the year the pupils felt the need of a new dictionary and more supplementary readers. A candy sale was conducted at the street fair and these books were purchased, also several books of fiction. Room six entered the W. C. T. U. contestg each student made a booklet. The winners were: Victoria Cobb, first. Homer Gray, second. Geography notebooks of the United States were also made and proved interesting and instructive. In the Declamatory contest, Ida Mary Sil- liman won second place. The class was very much gratified to find they had fifty-six perfect scores in the last county examination. Besides the club work which was of a social nature the pupils enjoyed a warm sugar party and are looking forward to an outdoor picnic before the close of school. -Grace E. Tripp. 0 FIFTH GRADE NEWS The Fifth Grade has no failures to re- port this year. The class is looking forward to a successful year in the Sixth Grade. The attendance for this room was better than average, until the eighth month when grippe and colds caused several perfect records to be broken. Five pupils, however, have neither been absent or tardy thus far for this year. They are Vienna Arnio, Lois Bissell, Carrie Bittikofer, Grace Harmon, Edwin McClurg and Jessie Smith. In the declamatory contest held in April Norma Woodard and Arthur Betts repre- sented the Fifth Grade. They competed with +o contests from grades Six, Seven and Eight. From this contest Norma was chosen to represent Andover at the district contest held here April 19. Edwin McClurg and Wilda Vickery are representatives for spelling for Grade Five and Vienna Arnio and Norma Woodard for spelling. -Clara B. Jerome. 0 FOURTH GRADE NEWS The enrollment for Fourth Grade has not varied much this year. Only one pupil has entered from another school during the year and two have Withdrawn to go to other schools. Our enrollment now standing at twenty-five. We have completed about all the work re- quired for Fourth Grade. We are now spending our time reviewing some of the dif- ficult parts of each subject. Friday's reading lessons have been de- voted to oral reading. The pupils found their own stories they wanted to read, stud-- ied them and read them to the teacher some- time before their turn to read. Besides these special stories we have read three other books. Our Health Club has aroused much inter- est in cleanliness and neatness. If someone forgets and comes to school with unclean hands and face or uncombed hair usually gets invited to leave the room to "fix" them- selves up a bit. It seems to be rather diffi- cult for one to get passed the inspector with- out these marks of untidiness being noticed. Margaret Hatton and Seymour Brown have been neither absent nor trady during the school year. Miss Perry has taught music in the Fourth Grade during this school year while Miss Roberts taught penmanship in Third Grade. We are glad to have Jackie Fletcher and Leo Maki to represent our grade in the school band, and hope more will take up the work in another year. We have made portfolios to keep our art work in. Each pupil made their own cover, originated their own design and colored them. Most of our art work has been free hand. Some of the boys and girls have proven to be real artists. The last project we take up will be designing a book cover for our United States book we are making in Geography class. Spelling has been given much time and a great deal of interest has been shown. We have made our own spelling pads for each month and our aim has been for everv one to get 100 per cent every day each -9-+4-0-0-09-0-0-Q month. The penalty for those who didn't do this was to take a spelling test covering the words spelled during the month. Besides these has been quite a rivalry between the boys and girls to see which could have the least number missing words. The Fourth Grade can feel proud of themselves to know that there are no fail- ures. Hazel Roberts. O THIRD GRADE NEWS The following pupils have not been late or absent during the month of May: Howard Barnes, Kenneth Cook, Marietta Fitts, Ruth Hazelton, Ruth Inman, Vieno Maki, Claire Miller, Wade Miner, Donald Peck, Florence Peck, Charles Peebles, William Simons, Doris Simons, Clarabel Snyder, Blanche Ward and Hiram Waters. Blanche Ward is the only one in the third grade who has had a perfect attendance the entire year. Miss Roberts has had charge of the writ- ing this year. Pen and ink have been used most of the time and fine results have been obtained. As we think back to the beginning of our third year's work a great improvement can be seen in our reading. The readers we have read are Beacon Second Reader, Beacon Third Reader, New American Reader, Elson Reader, Winston Silent Reader and Beacon Fourth Reader. Many of the stories have been dramatized, encouraging self-expres- sion. The first fifteen minutes of each after- noon are given over to the reading of a chap- ter from some books chosen by the boys and girls. Nine of the Bobbsey Twin books have been read. The children having the six highest grades for the year are Marietta Fitts, Vieno Maki, Ruth Hazelton, Burdetta Beebe, Her- man Karr and Claire Miller. A project was worked out in connection with our drawing work. National Biscuit boxes were gotten from the stores and one side and windows cut out, thus making lovely doll houses. The walls were papered, rugs put on the floor, curtains hung at the win- dows and furniture constructed and placed in the room. Bedrooms, living rooms, kitch- ens and dining rooms were made, each child bringing out some harmonious color combi- nations, also work in arranging furniture. National Music Week, which is the week of May 6, is being observed in the third grade. The pupils who can play or sing some little pieces are going to give their class- mates a program Friday, May 11. Arleen Leonard, Alice Corey, Goldie Van Dusen and Keith Russell were enrolled in our grade for a part of the year, but moved to other schools. All the multiplication tables have been learned in our arithmetic work throughout the year. Other new work taken up has been the multiplying of numbers with numbers carried over, subtraction involving borrow- ing and division with numbers remaining to be carried over. The work book used this year has made the arithmetic work very in- teresting, the thought problems being about the things children are interested in and are told in story form. Health scrapbooks were made a few months ago. Pictures were collected per- taining to health and health rules. Good food, exercise and fresh air, proper care of the body and cleanliness were some of the lessons taught. Our room is planning a picnic for the last day of school, if the weather permits. Faye Perry. 0 SECOND GRADE NEWS The second grade total enrollment for the year is 44-22 girls and 22 boys. At the end of the year we have 39-21 boys and 18 girls. Lois Jane Parsons missed two months of school with scarlet fever. She was the only one in our room to get this disease. Susie Turoci, Jack Hazelton and James Hatton have been neither absent nor tardy during their second year of school. During the year Robert Lyle Allen en- tered our room from Wayne, Florence Davis from Saybrook, Helen Nemes from Cleve- land, Lois Jane Parsons from Williamsfield. Also several boys and girls moved away, Ar- lena Case to Richmond, Florence Davis to Cleveland, James Dixon to Grafton, W. Va., and Mary Ann Weidenhamer to Deiance. Burdetta Beebe was promoted to third grade in October. She has been doing splen- did work all the year. In April Bobby and Betty French joined us from first grade. They are doing good Work in our room. The following have been on the Honor Roll for the year: Lois Butler, Beulah Carr. Betty Cross, Lucille Fletcher, Olaf Maki. Lyle McCormick, Carol Pancost and Helen Scannell. We have read the following books in our regular reading class: The Beacon Intro- ductory Second Reader, the Beacon Second Reader, the Progressive Reader, In Animal Land, the Everyday Classis and the River- side Reader, besides first having reviewed both the Beacon Primer and the Beacon First Reader. As part of our reading work the children prepared stories outside of school and read PAGE 12 .,-Q-0-Q-Q them to the teacher. Then on Fridays these stories were read to the group instead of having our regular reading class. In our arithmetic class We have used "My Work Book in Arithmetic," by Myers. The first of the book took up simple number work with pictures to draw and color. Then came the addition combinations With thought problems and tests. These were followed by the subtraction combinations with their thought problems and tests. To go with our books each had a complete set of cards for both the addition and subtraction facts. Be- sides the work covered in the arithmetic work books we have learned to add, using the "carry", to multiply by 2's and 3's, and also to divide by 2's and 3's. The work in mul- tiplication was preceeded by counting as far as 100 by both 2's and 3's. We have also learned the Roman numerals to 50, which was followed by learning to tell the time of day. Along with our music work we organized a toy orchestra, so that we might learn a little about rhythm work. First we kept time to music played by the victrola. by clapping and marching. Later the children brought whatever toy instru- ments they had at home. With these we kept time to music played by the victrola. Homer Reeder, James Hatton, Billy Dudgeon, Olive Goldie Cline played the drumsg Helen Scannell, Lois Jane Parsons, Beulah Hynes and Susie Turoci played tam- bourinesg Carl Pancost, Lucile Duff, Kathryn Hatton and Lyle McCormick played xylo- phonesg Claudine Luce, Lucille Fletcher played hornsg Barbara Luseberg, Beulah Carr, Lewis Fitch, William Smith and Carl Nelson played whistlesg Lois Butler played bellsg Marion French played the triangle, and Wayne Sawtelle played the fiexotone. Olaf Maki was the leader. We played sev- eral times for the first, third and fourth grades. After this work we took up some simple folk dances, such as "I See You," "Danish Greeting" and "The Shoemaker's Dance." We also learned a little rhythm play for "Dick- ery, Dickery Dock." "The Chi1dren's Polka" and "The Mountain March" will complete this work. Our art work has been quite varied. We have colored many pictures, which included safety pictures, scenes, pictures for the holi- days and pictures of birds. Then We have had paper tearing and cutting of nursery rhymes, trees, also poster making, cutting of letters, cutting of fruits, vegetables and -Q-04-O-Q-004-0-0-40-Q-0-o44Q644Q466-960 O0 flowers. Weaving helped us to learn to meas- ure, for both the mats and the strips had to be measured accurately. Then followed the weaving of the mats in some design. Most of these were woven from dictation. We made butterfiy, squirrel and cat mats, besides some of other designs. Each month we made ap- propriate spelling books and blackboard bor- ders. In January we made Eskimo books which greatly helped us to understand more about the life of the Eskimos. At Christmas time we made doilies for our mothers and decorated handkerchief boxes for our fath- ers. For Mother's Day each of us made a pink and a white carnation. These We put in decorated cans for our mothers. This year our playground has been equipped with a sandpile. It certainly has been a source of great pleasure for us. Our janitor, Mr. Bissell, has also made some new teeterboards for us. Of course we enjoy them, too. As part of the entertainment for Educa- tion Week the second grade read and drama- tized a story from the Beacon Introductory Second Reader. This story was read and played as we would in our own room. Dur- ing Farmer's Institute we gave a demonstra- tion of organized play on the gymnasium floor. We played a relay race with bean bags. This race was followed by two games with the basketball. Then as a last game we played "Follow the Leader." Several times we had the banner for the cleanest room for the week. Each time we were entitled to an extra half-hour play period. We had several of these in the manual training room and in the gymnasium. Then we saved two and took a little field trip back of the new cemetery for pussy willows. We found a few pussy willows and everyone had a handful of wintergreens. We had a very enjoyable trip. Lois Jane Parson and Susie Turoci cele- brated their birthdays in school with birth- day parties. They each brought their cakes and candles were put on and lighted. Every- one greatly enjoyed the parties. Lona Miller, Teacher. O FIRST GRADE NEWS The first grade boys and girls have read the following sets of books during the year: "Beacon Gate to Reading," "Beacon Primer," "Beacon Reader," "Fun Book," "Winston Primer," "Happy Hour Stories," "Browne Readers," "Playtime Stories" and "Story Hour Readers." Don Marr and Helen Jones have not been absent or tardy this year. Bobby and Betty French were promoted from the first grade into the second grade in PAGE 13 0 Q9-Q-0 0-of-0-0-0-rv-Q00 -0-9-0-Q--0-0-0-Q-0+ April. They are doing nicely with second grade work. George Parsons, Dane Crawford, Virginia Chambers and Dale Jerome have had scarlet fever this year. Miss Faye Perry taught music in the first grade again this year. She came into the first grade each day for a 20-minute period while Miss Satterlee taught reading in the third grade. The following boys and girls have en- tered our grade from other schools during the year: Alex Gall, Mabel Graham, Dane Crawford and Billy Thorn. An attractive addition has been made to the playground this year-a large sandpile of several tons of sand, and some new teeter- boards. We wish to thank Mr. Bissell, thc janitor, for seeing to these improvements. oo-0-0000-vo-0 0-Q-Q4-Q4-9-00444-ro-vo-o-Q-0-vo44-Q+Q+o eo-o+q44+Q -o-0+-o++o-Q-A Q There has been an average number of 17 boys and girls who carried their lunches to school this winter. The majority of these pupils brought milk to drink with their lunches. The use of straws greatly increased this number. Among the projects that we carried out this year were a dry goods store, Eskimo picture show, shadow plays, several sand table projects and a village constructed mainly from construction paper. The health work for the year has cen- tered around the ten main rules of health. These rules have been brought before the children by the use of stories, plays, posters, health books made by the children, daily in- spection and health charts which were taken home, marked and brought back to school.

Martin of the Andover school began to "cash in" on his plans for a school band, by receiv- ing the backing of the school board and the aid of the community. They were able to secure the services of Mr. George E. Wahl- strom, the director of music in Ashtabula Harbor school. . The high school band was first made up of our whole music class, including stringed and wind instruments. This group made one public appearance during the first year. O-0-0-O-O-0 The following fall in '27 Director George E. Wahlstrom was unable to resume his classes here. He recommended Mr. Chas. Luoma of Warren, Ohio, who has had chargc of the instrumental music classes this year. Mr. Luoma has made great progress with his pupils and has enabled them to render several public appearances, which met with very favorable comment. Our uniforms were selected by a commit- tee of the Chamber of Commerce.

President, Gladys East- lake, vice president, Ruth Cleland, secre- tary-treasurer, Matilda Bowden. We still are recognized by the same name, "The Nightin- gale Club," and are still under the same leader, Miss Faye Perry. Most of our time was devoted to practic- ing the operetta, "Love Pirates of Hawaii." Those who had leading parts were Matilda Bowden, Miss Primerg Roberta Crum, Doro- thy Dearg Duncan McCombs, Billy Woody Howard Grey, pirate chief. The chorus con- sisted of 22 girls and five boys. It was pre- sented before a large audience April 13, 1928. Nearly S100 was cleared as the result of the entertainment. Over one-half of this is to be donated toward the payment of the band suits. The remaining amount will"he used for a party at Crystal Lake, during the last week of school. This organization has been one of the most successful ones of the Andover High School. The members of this organization are: Leader, Miss Faye Perryg Dorothy Miner, Dorothy Murray, Gladys Eastlake, Virginia Ballentine, Roberta Crum, Leota Smith, Clara Burtt, Matilda Bowden, Irene Cross, Mildred Cline, Alice Peck, Ruth Hill, Mil- dred Bailey, Ruth Cleland, Thelma Brooks, Donna Dustman, Doris Phillips, Marion Vickery, Elizabeth Bailey, Shirley Marvin, Bonny Dudgeon, Frances Miner, Clarabel Steen and Louise Russell.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL The season of 1927-28 was one of the most successful in the annals of Andover basketball history. The season opened with an extraordinary amount of spirit and a large number of candidates for the team. Three varsity players, Thelma Hartz, Ruth Gay and Nellie Hartz, have gone since last season. Their places were filled with able players. Those on the varsity team this year were Dot Mu1'ray, Betty Bishop, Anna Ogram, Ana Gay, Claribell Steen, Mildred Bailey and Frances Miner as honorary cap- tain. Second team was made up of Arda Mason, La Dell Mead, Ruth Hill, Irene Reed and Frances Cleland. Those getting nu- merals for their help in practice and the second team were Lyla and Lyda Loe and Elizabeth Bailey. Miss Boord was the coach and did fine work in training and bringing her team to victory. The team itself this year showed excel- lent spirit, sportsmanship and team work throughout the season. The players started out the season by winning their first schedf uled game from Williamsfield. By hard practice and physical development the entire squad grew into a faster and better skilled team. During the season the girls lost only one county scheduled game. They received 219 points to their opponents' 184. The coach was especially encouraged this season with prospects of some new material for next year's squad. The second team played several games and Won from New Lyme and Espyville. On several occasions the coach had opportunity to try out some of the reserves and they succeeded in mak- ing an excellent showing. The crowning event of the season, of course, was the winning of the annual county tournament. It happened that the Andover girls drew Rome for their first game which was played off Feb. 19. The game was rather slow and although An- dover easily succeeded in winning over their opponents their playing was not all indicta- tive of what to expect the following Satur- day. The first game played the next week was with Williamsfleld. It was a close, hard- fought game all the way through. After winning that, however, the girls entered the finals against Orwell. Never did the'girls display such marvelous teamwork as they did then and their playing was superb. The game was the most exciting of the wholc tournament, and the Andover girls winning by a score of 26-21 brought home the first 9-0-000000 0 Q Q 440404-G0-G0-0-0-0-QQQO-QQ Q-Q pennant the basketball girls have ever won.

In fact the success of the season was demonstrated by a total score of 482 points to their opponents' 322. The boys suffered only four defeats in fifteen games. In the first game with Grand River Institute the Andover boys took the lead early in the game but lost control as G. R. I. forged ahead. A comeback was staged but too late. The next game of importance was with the M. E. Church team from Con- neaut. Conneaut scored first and at the half were in the lead 11-8. In the last half that "everlasting never-failing fighting spirit" came back and the boys came out on top 19-14. The next game of importance was the first of the County-league games with Dorset. The boys shook the "Friday the 13th jinx" and came out with no less than a 22-6 victory. The first of the County- league teams to invade our floor was the Orwell cagers. The Orwell boys had fond hopes of humbling the Andover quintet but. well you know the "fighting spirit." Andover marked up another victory 42-30. The next big game, the best of the season, was excit- ing and those fans who journeyed to Grand River Institute will verify the statements. The game edged back and forth during three quarters and then G. R. I. managed to get ri four-point lead. With just seven seconds to go Andover made a basket and had two trials from the Charity line. The first was a counter. The second rolled off the rim but when the "six-foot trio" of which we boast Went into action the ball sank through the basket just as the whistle blew, a one point victory but it counted and marked the close of one of the best games Andover ever played. Other games of the year were Al- bion 34-Andover High School 26, Albion 39- Andover High School 22, Williamsfield 17- Andover 48, Rock Creek 14-Andover 44, Rome 14-Andover 37, Richmond 11-Andover 36. When the time for the county tourna- ment arrived the Andover boys had hopes of becoming the "County Champs," but after eliminating Rome the Andover team had the damper put upon its efforts when it met with defeat at the hands of Rock Creek. Al- though they failed to bring home the pen- nant the Andover boys basketball team re- garded the year 1927-28 as a big, happy sea- son. Milton E. Martin, Class of '28. PAGE 18 +G0 BASEBALL In the fall of 1927 began the athletics with much confidence in a successful season of baseball. At the beginning of the season there were many to respond to try for places on the team. Some of those taking part on the team and those aiding in its develop- ment Were: Warren, Cobb, Lewis, Parker, Martin, Huffman, Johnson, Sanko, Vickery, Stump, Nelson, Britton, Gray and Luoma. Some of these were not able to be on the team due to "some special" cause that could not be "avoided," but aided the team very much in their practice. The season started with the team being very successful. Of the games played only two were lost before the tournament. This gave the school and also the boys a feeling that they were to be successful in winning the pennant. By the time of the tournament the boys were thoroughly determined to win. The first game of the tournament was with Kingsville and our boys winning with a score of 9-4. For the next game we drew Wayne. This we easily won but with a smaller margin with a score of 3-2. The final game was with Dorset, whom we had defeated earlier in the year. This game and the pennant was lost by a smaller margin. TRACK At this writing the boys for Field meet are practicing noon hours and at nights after school. The following are taking part in some event: Todd, Hall, Parker, Huffman, Warren, Marr, Sanko, Lewis, Dain, Stump, Luoma, D. McCombs, Dingman, Creesy. Hoover, Martin and Tabor. The Field meet tournament is to be held May 12, 1928, at Jefferson, Ohio. Forrest Cobb. O TENNIS The Tennis teams of Andover High School have been eminently successful and have the unusual record of having won every contest in the last four years. Two of the girls who graduated two years ago won first and second in the county championship contests. The boys' team, which shares in the undefeated honors, will graduate this year and we shall expect to hear from them in college circles. With Miss Sarah Thompson and Miss Marjorie Watson and Mr. Milton Martin and Mr. Em- erson Gibbs, Andover High had a tennis squad that is rarely equalled in any high school in the state. The game is becoming more popular each year and many are trying for places on the squad. moo-Q44-04-000040090 o'vooo+o++o o 904-Q-0-+040-0+-vo-0-9-0-+0 FACULTY Back Row, Left to'Rig'ht-Carleton M.
