"THE RIGHT START"
A modern school is very unlike the school
of a generation ago. 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-
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
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
-Doris G. Phillips.
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
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.

The graduating class this year is small,
only composed of nineteen members. 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.

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-

members of the debate team, while Doris

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.

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.
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.
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
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

Although the age old saying is, "Beware
of False Prophets," today we decided to ig-
nore it and enter the "Tent of Wonders,"
where the past, present and future are re-
vealed to us, through the use of the magic
crystal. 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
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

and schoolmates, are now seen. They have
made a great success in the electrical world
and are at the present time in Australia

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
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:
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
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.

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,
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

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-

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

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-
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-
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

The Boys' Varsity had a very satisfactory
season this year, winning all of their County-
league games. 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.
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.
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.

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
