We left our cradles and mothers for something more instructive. Nine very cute little youngsters, if you don't believe it, ask us, started that year. They were Gladys Eastlake, Alice Peck, Roy Nel- son, Homer Hall, Thelma Palmer, Do1'othy John- son, Ernest Austin, Frances Cleland and Betty Bishop. Miss Loveridge was the unfortunate teacher to push our ship off on the educational journey. Many and severe were her trials with the pupils of the class. In the second year, Clover Perry joined our class. Also that fine trio of bashful boys, Emerson Parker, Warren Russell and Clifford Swezey cam: to ioin our growing numbers. Our second grade teacher, Miss Wright, is now Mrs. Dart. During 'the next three months, under the guidance of Miss Perry and Miss Coulter, Ana Gay, Ruth Richard, Irene Cross, Lucy Belle McClurg, Margaret Paul, Howard Gray and Ralph Vickery joined our 1'anks for better or was it no better. The sixth year was spent in the building now used as the Oakland-Pontiac sales room. due to the fact that the old school building was being replaced by the new one. That was a year of little work and a great deal of horseplay. Miss Edin was behind the desk, keeping to the best of her ability, all stray cats from the room. We started the seventh grade in the new building, under the supervision of Miss White. Miss Sponseller was the home room teacher during our last year in the grades. Mr. Martin was the superintendent as we entered into the new life of High School activi- ties. Many of us felt that the new work was very hard but worked on until we passed the work. Mrs. Martin, Mr. Noggle and Mr. Cercle contributed to the vast amount of knowledge, supposed to have been assimilated during the year. During the Freshman year, Paul Tabor and Floyd Hoover joined the happy band. The class has never been the same since, so they say. Miss Warren controlled us during that green period. As we ripened into the Sophomore classifica- tion, Miss Boord tossed out a life line and drew us under her watchful guidance. The following year, as Juniors, the class nearly drove Miss Whitney to distraction with their pranks. It was during this year that Helen McCombs, Wilma Salin, Donna Dustman, Kosti Luoma, Alfred Wells, Kenneth McCombs and Manning Leslie. all from Richmond, contributed to the class enrollment. In the Senior year, Malcolm Bratton from New Lyme, Luther Wolfe, Milo Huntley and Lucille Williams from Pierpontg Claude Schlos- ser from Lisbon, came to tell us about methods of raising corn used in their towns. Mr. Hicks was the class adviser. The rest of our High School teachers who exposed us to knowledge were Mr. Whalen, Mr. Moore, Mr. Dickson, Miss Hall, Mr. Rolland, Miss Nelson and Miss Case. o+v+voo+4+++Q+4++ 0-0+-0-rroa reo- Page Three 0-0-9-Q0-eo-0-0 Q 4-eo++o+o+++ Q SENIORS I Front row-Warren Russell, Thelma Palmer, Kenneth McCombs, Lucille Williams, Alfred Wells.

Page E ight .1 .if-gf--T -if!-w Wg- 6 , i ' - d.Ll1U H . n'f' It is easy to get information on a great many subjects without working very hard or prying very far beneath the surface. There are, once in a while, some students who boast about taking a subject throughout a term and never having to consult a text book, and still getting good grades. It is unusual, but not im- possible, for a bright student. By failing 'to exert himself, so that he will stand out in a superior position, he is cheating himself of a chance to excel, and the class in that he lowers its normal average. What more pitiful sight does one see in a school than that of a boy or girl who follows rather than bother himself to lead, who is -O-0-04-0-o-9-so-O-0-0-9-0-0-0+-0-Q satisfied with getting by when he might win something of real value for himself then, and in later life. He will probably find that with this kind of training, it will be possible to make good im- pressions and to pass such tests as he will be called upon to take. Sooner or later, however. a real test will come and on its outcome will depend the success or failure of his life. If he has always been satisfied to just "get by" he will fail in the crisis, which will require the best. The failure is due to defective foundations. A good solid foundation is the only basis of success in any work, and is built only by dili- gent preparation in school and school work. 0-G++-0-0-Q-+0-0-O-Q-0-0-vo JUNIOR CLASS The oiiicers for the Junior class for the year are: Arda Mason, presidentg Roberta Crum, vice-presidentg Dot Murray, secretary and treasurer. The class was entertained by the Seniors at a delightful party, early in the year. They are planning a trip to Nelson Ledges soon, for the entertainment of the Seniors. The Juniors also had a sleigh-ride party, which everyone agreed was a decided success. For the Junior-Senior party, the Juniors arc: planning on a trip to Cleveland. The plans are not complete yet but indications point to a fine time for all. The Juniors, being badly in need of funds. held a bake sale on the 13th of April. It was a big success in spite of the unlucky date on which it was held. The class sent several of its members on the recent band trip to Akron, and proudly admits that it has six star basketball players in its enrollment. 044444044-+00-044-0-Q-QQ-90-04-0-o0oo+oo Page 'Vme Front rowf-Helen Karpiack, Maude Myres, Grace Smith, Elizabeth Bailey, Ruth Hill, Sylvia Salo, Kathryn Schlosser, Faye Myres, Ruby Richard.

SOPHOMORE CLASS The officers elected to lead the Sophomores for thc year were: Raymond Johnson, presi- dentg Samuel Luse, vice-presidentg Elizabeth Bailey, secretary and treasurer. On February fifth, the Sophomore class enjoyed a party at the home of Katherine Schlosser. Games were played as the main feature of a highly entertaining progam. At a late hour, refreshments were served. Mr. Martin acted as chaperone. Francis Phillips entered the class this year. The class welcomes him and hopes that he will remain here during the rest of his high school days. Faye Steen and Merle Hathaway went out into the World and are now laboring with mighty problems of the universe. Edna Baker left Andover and is going to school at Ashta- bula now. Those on the honor roll during the past year are: Samuel Luse, Ruth Hill, Maude Myers and Francis Phillips. Besides this noteworthy group there are many others of high scholastic attain- ments. On April the 18th the Sophomores had as their guests the graduating class of Richmond high school. Lunch was served at noon in the dining room to the class members, the visitors. and the faculty. Some of the class have been very much interested in athletics. Six members of the class were members of the two varsity basket- ball squads. The following were given recog- nition as varsity players: Harry Sanko, Harry Swezey, Wallace Dingman, Ruth Hill, Anna Ogram and Elizabeth Bailey. Harry Sanko and Harry Swezey with Sam Luse were members of the baseball squad and will do big things next fall. Sam Luse led the cheers during the past year in a most eflicient manner. Four members of the class were in the band, Grace Smith, Wallace Dingman, Sam Luse and Raymond Johnson. Francis Phillips was a member of the debate team. Ruth Hill was a participant in the declamatory contest. Helen Karpiack will represent Andover H. S. in the county spelling contest. Ruby Richard deserves a great deal of credit for being neither tardy nor absent during the past year. .++++44+0++ -++0 Q++44 0940 --0-0 0-Q-0-Q-9-0-5000 .

Junior Dingman, clown of the class, Got his Chevvy coupe at last. Raymond Johnson plays the bass horn, Studies Latin from night till more. Here's to Silvia, light and fair, Does not know what it means to care. Harry Sanko, our class athlete, Got a big A, and is hard to beat. Maude and Faye both have red hair, Walk five miles to save carfare. Samuel Luse, the dude of the class, Liked by all, but cares not for a lass. Mike and Henry, greatest of pals, Always together, but not with gals. Helen Karpiack has curly hair, Prizes her Latin and knows it is rare. Harry Swezey, wild and woolly, Never attempts to be the class bully. Elizabeth Bailey is full of wit, An easy matter for her to make a hit. Ruth Hill, liveliest of all, Saw Jess Woodworth and took a fall. Carl Wilenius, a butter and egg man, Try to beat him in English, if you can. Ruby Richards, from Crystal Lake, Says Andover people makde a terrible mistake. Anna Ogram, friendly to all, We hope she comes back again this fall. Katherine Schlosser, may her name remain, She helped our class to gain its fame. Ila and Grace are next in line, Usually inseparable, most of the time. Virgil Barnes, the boy about town, Wouldn't wonder if he read the clock around.

FRESHMAN CLASS The Freshman class held an election of oiiicers the first month of the school year. The class elected George Harrison as its president while Ruth Fitts was chosen as the vice-presi- dent and Mathilda Bowden, secretary and treasurer. Throughout the year, the class members have enjoyed their new subjects a great deal. The entire class took up two Freshman sub- jects, English and General Science. Some ol' the class were often perplexed with Algebra, but managed to come out all 1'ight under the supervision of Mr. Hicks. In English some of the class thought that they were better English- men that their teacher. However, the dictionary usually convinced them that they were mise taken. Mr. Thompson brought many things in General Science which have been of extreme value to all and have proved to be V91'y in- teresting. Miss Boord has made Latin seem very much alive rather than the so-called dead language. Plays and songs in Latin have addefl to the general interest. lVho can forget that play when Parker was dressed as the king and seemed to be cut in two. Mr. Jerome has made some good carpenters out of the boys while others are convinced that as carpenters they 0-+4-o+o-0 Page Twelve are still good ditch-diggers. Two members of the class are taking Agriculture. At the beginning of the year there was an enrollment of thirty-one members. The total has remained the same and it is hoped that the class may stay together until graduation. The first class gathering was the one in which members of the first year class were formally, or was it informally, initiated into the high school group. A great many stunts were pulled off at the expense and discomfort of the Freshmen, although it all seemed to please those who made up the audience. A party was held at the home of Marion Vickery. The class gave her a pleasant sur- prise and a fine time was enjoyed by all those present. During the winter the class went to West Andover and had a great time on a coasting pa1'ty. After all had partaken of a little sliding and a great many spills, or rather, thrills, a fire was built and George Harrison gave a lecture and demonstration on the number of hot dogs one may consume with safety. The class is glad to come to the end of the first quarter of its high school course, and will try to get along even better next year. oo-0-0-o-+00-4-0-9-Q-9-00-0-Q-0-Q 9 0-04-0-oo-0-0-oo-0-0-Q-9+-vo-0 f 4-0 EIGHTH The eighth grade has one member who has neither been tardy nor absent during the past two years. Five more of the class have not been absent during the past year except for a short time while they were entertaining that swell disease known as the mumps. Luella Wade missed the first that she has ever missed since she began school. Lcta Bissell carried off the honors in scholarship, having received 77 E's on her monthly report card, and six E's in her county GRADE examinations. The class was represented in the declamatory contest by Hattie Case who took second place in the grade contest. Six members of the class are in the band, and took part in the contest held at Akron. Rogene Hill and Hazel Smith represented 'the class in the spelling contest. Hattie Case and Hazel Smith have the highest scores in the arithmetic contest. It is hoped that 'these pupils will be able to place in the meet at Jefferson. 0-0-Q4-040 -++0444+0+-0 eo+ SEVENTH GRADE The seventh grade is proud of its only perfect attendance member, Charles Ainger. He has been neither absent nor tardy. With measles, mumps and whooping-cough germ: filling the air it is hard to see how Charles dodged all of them. The class is glad to welcome Wilda Elliot, a new student from Eagleville. Three of the class, Edna Murdock, Ida Mary Silliman and June Robison, have moved away. Phillip Porter was the class speaker in the declamatory contest. Three seventh graders, Victoria Cobb, Duane Hill and Robert Burns have been on the Honor Roll each month of this year. The most recent president of the Junior Review Club was Homer Gray. The money left in the class fund will be used at the end of the year. A class library of about 110 books has helped out a great deal. Correspondence with the schools of Andover, Connecticut, has been very interesting. They have sent notebooks, drawings and letters, while many things have also been sent 'to them. A great deal has been learned about the boys and girls of this other Andover. SIXTH The sixth grade have an enrollment of twenty-seven, but owing to the epidemic of mumps, only one pupil, Vienna Arnio, had a perfect yearly attendance record. Two mem- bers were lost by withdrawal. Thomas Case, who moved to Arizona in December, and Elmer 'Baker who left for Ashtabula last month. In spite of the forced absence, quarterly examinations showed that the students were doing very good work, and the grades were very gratifying. In November, an operetta, "The Maid of the In April, a birthday party for Miss Stine- bring was held by the class. Victoria Cobb baked the cake for the occasion. The girls said that it looked just fine, while the boys agreed that it tasted awfully good. O HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEVENTH GRADE Hill is our athlete, The curves, he knows them all, And you can surely depend On him to play baseball.

The proceeds were divided between the two grades and twenty phonograph records were purchased for musical appreciation. At the beginning of the second semester. a news outline club was formed. This furnished information as Current Events and also in- structions in parliamentary law was used. Class officers were elected every four weeks. The class also subscribed to the Plain Dealer for further information. Page ' Th o irteen +6+44+ Regular instructions in music have been given and a two and three-part chorus was formed which appeared at several functions. At the carnival, the sixth grade had charge of the relic room, which made the association about ten dollars. Vienna Arnio represented the class in the declamatory contest. Several parties have added social enjoyment. Christmas gifts were exchanged, as were also valentines. FWTH The total enrollment for the fifth grade this year has been thirty-five. However, the highest attendance at any one time was only thirty-two. Due to the mumps there is only one person from this grade who has had a perfect attendance record. Fred Sparling is the lucky boy, and from his fine record must be considered a healthy one. One wonders if his motto is "Early to bed," etc. The fifth grade has done very creditable work this year in music under the guidance of Mrs. Tripp. For the music festival at Kings- ville, Leo Maki and Mary Harrison represented Andover. Penmanship has been ably taught by Miss Roberts. If the class continues to improve in writing as much as they have in the past, they will not cause many people to have eyestrain. In the declamatory contest, grade five had several entries. They were as follows: Joseph Thompson, Marian Steen, Alma Pancost, Mar- garet Hatton, Jeanne Ralya and Billie Heath. The judges chose Billie as the first place win- ner. In the school contest, Billie was chosen to represent Andover. Again, at Cherry Valley, Billy came through, and as a result of this he will represent Andover at the county contest. Leo Maki and Esther Kolehmainen were chosen to represent this grade in the Arithmetic FOURTH The total enrollment for the year in the fourth grade is twenty-five. Daniel Burger came to Andover from Kinsman early in the year, while James Robison moved to Youngs- town in March. Bernice Hooks, Viola and Walter Garvey joined the grade in February. Lena Mook came from Franklin, so that at the end of the year the enrollment totals 'twenty- four. The work for the second semester has been greatly hindered by the numerous cases or mumps, measles and chicken-pox. For two weeks less than half of the regular attendance was present. Page F ouzteen 44++Q4 Four members represented the grade in the Akron band contest. For a grand finale, the class went to Conneaut this spring. They visited the Conneaut Creamery and inspected the harbor activities, including the loading and unloading of large lake vessels. The remainder of the afternoon was spent roasting weiners and marshmallows at a driftwood fire on the beach. GRADE and Spelling contests at Jefferson. Those in the band from this grade include: Leo Maki. Charles Babcock, Jackie Fletcher, Alma Pan- cost and Anna Curtiss. During the year new books have been pur- chased to add to the class library. Many books have also been donated. As a part of the regu- lar work, the News Outline has been read and discussed. Several of the pupils have made News Outline notebooks. A short time ago they took a vote on the National Flower, a tabula- tion being partly sponsored by the News Out- line. The English work this year has been made up of both Written and oral Work. The written part has been especially well done. The follow- ing is a short fable written by Anna Curtiss. THE TWO TREES "How sorrowful you look," said the Maple Tree to his friend the Birch Tree. "Yes, and I feel just as bad as I look, too," grumbled the Birch Tree. "To think I have to lose my leaves every Fall, and then every Spring I have to grow fresh ones. How useless it seems." "How strange it is to look at it that Way," said the Maple Tree. "I always enjoy bringing out my green leaves every Spring." GRADE The current paper, My Weekly Reader, has been furnished by the Board of Education. This paper has given the members good ma- terial for silent reading. Much interest has been shown in the topics of the day written in story form. The fourth grade have enjoyed their music class under the direction of Mrs. Tripp. The pupils on the honor roll for the year are: Burdetta Beebe, Marietta Fitts, Vienna Maki and Claire Miller. Grade four has no failures to report this year. ++044+ +040-+40-04-9-Q-so-oovo-9-04-Q Q-0-Q-0-0-0900-0-04-0-0+ s 0+ Q o+eo-0+ O -0-0-Q-Q-Q-9+-9-9-9-49+ THIRD Because of so much illness we have had no perfect attendance. Harold Peebles has not been tardy and missed only one day of school for the year. We were sorry to have Lyle McCormick withdraw for the last five months because of illness. Jean Phillips also will be unable to finish the school year because of eye trouble. SECOND The total enrollment for the second grade is 33. However at the close of school there arc only 26 in the grade, seven pupils leaving during the year while four entered from other schools. Attendance in the second grade has been reduced by the ravages of mumps, measles. whooping cough and chicken-pox. Nearly 9V6l'y person in the grade has been out of school for at least one of these diseases. During the winter, members of the room carried out a "Clean Teeth" crusade. The children were to brush their teeth twice each day and at the end of three months were to visit a dentist for an examination. The fol- lowing were successful in carrying out the project: Bliss Fitts Jr., Emerson Albert, Marian Burns, Louise Babcock, Dane Crawford and Anna Warren. A "Warm Breakfast" cam- paign was also conducted during the year. The first, second and third grades gave an 4-Q-to-o-0+-o-o Q-sooo-oavoo c+eo 0,04 oar o FIRST The enrollment for the first grade at the beginning of the year was 31. However, several children have moved away and more have entered so that at the present, the enrollment stands at 25. High hopes were held that a few perfect attendance records would me main- tained, but measles and mumps spoiled that record. Among the porjects taken up for the year were the constructions of a house for the Three Bears and My Page books, the latter in con- nection with reading. During Education Week the first grade had the Eight Health Rules as a project. The grade bought a new set of Wag and Put? o-re oo+4-rreoo+oo-ro-+00-o-o o-Q 0444+-0+-Q-Q-o-v GRADE The third grade made health booklets in February. With pictures we told how to eat and live to be healthy. At present we are making Geography note- books illustrating the work of the year which has been the necessities of man, food, clothing, shelter, tools and modes of travel and trans- portation. GRADE operetta, "Goldilocks' Adventure", on the 12th of December. With their share of the proceeds, the second grade bought a set of supplementary readers. . In reading, this year, the grade has read fifteen sets of supplementary readers as well as the four basal readers for the grade. In arith- metic, the pupils have studied the combinations in addition and subtraction, learned to tell time, to use Roman numerals, to multiply and divide by two and three. A nature study project was begun in April, in the form of an eggshell garden. Beans were planted in eggshells, and everyone enjoyed watching the growth of the plants. Those on the honor roll for the year are: Louise Babcock, Raymond Betts, Marian Burns, James Carr, Marilynn French, Geraldine Goff, Betty Hatton, Roy Hoover, Dale Jerome, Don Marr, Dorothy Maurer, Virginia Shepard and Clover Sparling. -Lona Miller. GRADE readers with the money obtained from the operetta. During the winter, two close races in phonics held our interest. A Clean Hands and Face Club was organized. Those obeying the rules of the club for a period of six weeks were given a badge. At the first signs of spring, the pupils began a thorough house cleaning. A complete re- arrangement of the room was accomplished and a library established. All the boys expressed great satisfaction because there were no rugs or carpets to clean. Ellajane Bishop, Betty Gault, George Par- sons, Lillian Salo, Norman Simmons, Betty Jeanne Espy and Margaret Ann Morrow are on the Honor Roll for the year.

SCHOOL BAND The Andover School Band, an organization heretofore little known outside the immediately surrounding territory, stepped into the lime- light and achieved considerable honor by plac- ing third in the state contest for class C bands at Akron, Saturday, May 4th. It is an organiza- tion made up of 8 cornets, 15 clarinets, 3 saxo- phones, 1 bassoon, 4 basses, 2 baritones, 1 oboe. 4 drums, 5 trombones, 4 flutes and 4 alto horns. in all a membership of 51, 16 of which have joined since last September. The leader is Mr. Luoma who is not only very capable in that capacity but is very well liked as a friend to all. The band has been very successful since launching upon its career. During the past year, the organization played at Dorset Street Fair, at the Ashtabula bridge celebration, at Brookfield and at Richmond High School. Also several concerts were given in the home school. The biggest and finest trip of the year was that one to the state contests. A great deal of time and hard work was used in getting ready for the trip and participation in the contest. The band left Thursday noon, some in a huge bus, others in private cars furnished by good friends of the school. Upon arrival in Akron, members of the band were assigned rooms with private families in the city and surrounding towns. Garfield High School was made the headquarters for the class C bands. On Friday, at ten o'clock, the band gave the contest pieces. Everything went along just fine, and everyone felt that the work of the band was splendid. During the afternoon, several of the members went on an inspection tour of the Firestone Rubber Company. Happy though somewhat tired, the whole group re- turned to Andover, Saturday night. During the summer months, the band has several engagements in sight. On Memorial Day we will furnish music for services 'at Lines- ville. Music will be handed out to visitors at least one evening a week, here in Andover, at regular evening concerts. ORCHESTRA The orchestra was reorganized this year under the direction of Mr. Luoma. The group was reduced in size so that it could be used to better advantage. In many of the engagements last year, the space alloted the orchestra was inadequate for the large number of members. The names.of those in the orchestra this year follow: Shirley Loveland, piano, Samuel Luse, Ruth Fitts and Roberta Crum, violins, Emerson Parker, trurnpetg George Harrison, flute, Thel- ma Palmer, drums, Paul Tabor, bassg Howard Veneen, clarinetg and Marion Vickery, alto. The orchestra practices once a week and has played several times in public. Due to the extra work in getting ready for the band con- test, the orchestra has been unable to fill as many engagements this year as last.

DRAMATIC CLUB The Dramatics Club waslorganized this year for High School pupils wishing to study and produce a play. Under the direction of Mr. Martin, the members studied dramatic English through the medium of the modern drama, and XVSFG able to secure a better idea of expression and to develop a power of interpretation not obtained in the classic English courses. As a vehicle of study, the modern three-act comedy, "Blame It On Sandy", was chosen. Definite progress, class enthusiasm, and good will in study gave rise to the idea of presenting the play to the public. The entire club par- ticipated in all rehearsals, and the producing cast was selected only a few days previous to the public presentation. The play met with the approval of an appreciative audience. The proceeds netted about 3570. Twenty-five dollars was given towards the expenses of the band trip to Akron. The remainder was left for the dramatic club of next year. Members elected Gladys Eastlake as their president. Lucille Williams was elected vice- president, while Clover Perry was secretary. Other members of the club Were: Wallace Ding- man, Thelma Palmer, Alfred Wells, Warren Russell, Howard' Maloney., Shirley Loveland.

For the first time for quite a while, interest in debate was at a high pitch and a large group of enthusiastic debaters appeared at the initial meeting of the year. The question was, "Resolved that the United States should not protect capital in- vested in foreign lands, except after a formal declaration of war". Among the first things done to get ready for the season was to go to Kinsman, where a debate between the teams of that school and Brookfield met and argued on the same subject. Though the Andoverites had studied only a little on the subject, after hearing that one debate they were about de- cided as to which side of the argument they would prefer. STUNT The Stunt Club was organized in High School during the past year. Late in November, Mr. Martin announced that the first meeting would be held soon. The only requirement for membership was that the individual put on a stunt, act, performance, song or play for the amusement and entertainment of the club. Either individual or group work Was allowed. The club met three times, each gathering being a huge success. Most members felt that this was one place where the "eats were not the best -+0-0 Page Eighteen The team seemed to naturally divide into two teams with each side feeling that its arguments were without question. The result was that even in the meetings, many a heated discussion was heard on the subject. When the great day arrived, each 'team felt that theirs was the Winning side. The afiirma- tive remained at home and met Rome, while the negative team traveled to Rock Creek. Two members of the declamation team were on each program. Both of the Andover debate 'teams won, while one of the four declamations came home with a Win. Andover thus finished well up in the county standings. As only two of the entire group are graduating this spring, the school may anticipate a great record from the teams next year. CLUB part of the program". The average attendance was about fifty. A period of games was usually followed by the program, after which refresh- ments were served. The club not only was a success as far as the meetings were concerned, but it also re- vealed a great many hidden actors and actresses. A great many of the acts have been used in public performances since the club started. Members will long remember with a great deal of pleasure, "Sauce For the Gos- lings", the four gossips, Oscar and Sam McGee. 0+o++44+ +4+4 Front rowfArda Mason, Clarabelle Steen, Dot Murray, Ana Gay, Matilda Bow- den.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL NEWS The opening of the girls' basketball season was heralded with great joy by those who were eagerly waiting for the season to open. The prospects were very encouraging when fifteen girls responded to the coach and appeared for practice the first night it was called. During the first three weeks much of the time was spent in drilling in fundamentals of passing, shooting and team work in general. However after a period of hard drill and practice the coach pronounced them ready to meet the first team of the season, that of North Kingsville on the home floor. - The North Kingsville team proved to be a strong team and although the game was very close and hard fought to the finish our girls did not succeed in breaking their line of defense and went down to a 24-15 defeat. In spite of their defeat however, the coach noticed a de- cided improvement in team and passwork which promised encouraging results in the future. A second temporary reverse was suffered at the hands of the South Kingsville girls on the Kingsville floor when we suffered a second de- feat, the score ending 23-16. The Andover team was greatly weakened by the "flu" epi- demic. having but two of the varsity in con- dition to play at all. In spite of the great handicap, however, the game was fast and the substitutes made a greatgshowing. The work of the guards was especially commendable and a great deal of the credit must be given to them for holding the South Kingsville girls down to a low score. On January 4th the girls turned overa new leaf and came out after Christmas vacation "hale and hearty", and determined to win. The girls succeeded in winning over the fast Con- neaut team by displaying superior passing and floorwork throughout the entire game. The game was clean and a credit to both sides. The final score was 19-11. On January 11th the Andoverites completely upset the dope bucket. Jefferson was rated at the top of the list, having won all their scheduled county games while Andover was hovering at the bottom of the list. The dope was that Jefferson would have an easy victory, but the Andover girls, knowing that they had to fight to win, came out stronger and more determined than ever. The game was one of' the fastest and best of the season. The teams were very evenly matched and it proved to be a very clean game. Seve1'al personal injuries were sustained but that was not due to the roughness of the game but to the over-anxiety of several of the Jefferson players. The result- ing score was Andover 17, Jefferson 11. The next week the old rivals, Andover and Williamsfield, clashed. The game was fairly close but considerable roughness was displayed and it was characterized by a number of fouls. The floorwork throughout the entire game was very slow but nevertheless the game was played with much spirit. At the end of the game the score board read Andover 16, Williamsfield 9. By way of recreation and to see what the girls would do against a team of class A, our girls journeyed to Geneva. Neither team knew what to expect from the other but it didn't take them long to find out. The game was speedy g 4++++ 9-vo-o-o-Q-4-o-0-vo-o-Q44-0+-4-reyes-e Q Page N inetean Oo -O-Q-to 0+ and close, covering a great deal of iioor. We won the game by a 14-7 score. The game with Dorset was played without incident, our girls winning an easy victory and making use of numerous substitutes. The best game of the season was played against Orwell on February 1 on the Orwell iioor. At the end of the third quarter the score was a tie and it was a toss-up as to who would win. During the last quarter, however, the Orwell gi-rls succeeded in getting in a run and brought up their score to 26 while ours re- mained at 18. The referee remarked that it was the fastest game he had refereed all season. Excellent sportsmanship was displayed on both sides. The next game of note was with Rock Creek when after a great amount of stubborn resist- ance and good offensive playing the girls won the game. The last two games of the season were marked by defeat, one being played at Rome and the other on the home floor with Vernon High School. The season this year, though not marked by the winning of the championship, was very satisfactory in a number of ways. Coach Boord was greatly encouraged with the prospects of next season as several new players made a good showing. The squad was regular in attendance and a great interest was shown even to the very last of the season. We regret losing three of our Seniors from the team. All of them played on the first team line-up and the two forwards. Betty and Ana, made a high shooting score, Betty ranking sixth in the all-county scoring. Claribell Steen was chosen for the center guard on the first team of the all-county choosing while Betty Bishop received honorable mention.

BOYS' BASKETBALL Champions of Ashtabula County in the Class B League was the title earned by the boys' basketball team during the season 1928-29. For the first time, the championship was decided on the percentage system and interest was keen all through the season, all over the county. Andover's closest rivals, Jefferson and Orwell, were defeated in close, hard-fought games. The first games of the season were with the Kingsvilles. Both games were won, North being beaten 38-9, while South went down 33-12. The game at South was the last to be played in their piano box. They now are playing in a fine new gym, making one less floor-hazard in the county. The team next met Pierpont, Williamsfield and Conneaut, winning the first two and losing the last mentioned, 42-33. Conneaut gave the best exhibition of basketball shown on the local floor during the year. Jefferson and Williamsfield were played next and both were defeated. Andover journeyed to Geneva next and after a fine game were forced to acknowledge defeat. The score was 23-20. Scoring only three field goals during the game, Orwell kept the score close by their fine foul tossing, dropping in eleven out of fifteen tries from the charity line. The final score was 19-17. Dorset, Wayne, Rock Creek and Rome were the rest of the county teams to be played. Each was defeated, the last two putting up excep- tionally hard games. The county schedule thus ended with Andover undefeated for the second year in succession in regular scheduled games. Jefferson and Orwell, finished tied for second. each lost two games.

The team was able to win about half of their games. How- ever, the team profited by the season's work and as most of the players are back for another year or two, better results may be expected in the future. In the first game of the year, Andover was beaten 10-0 by the Dorset team, which later came through with the county championship. They had a fine high school team and rightly deserved their title. ' The next evening, the team lost to Wayne, 5-4. This game was hard fought all the way and the visitors won in the last inning. Lines- ville came to Andover for the next game and then returned home empty-handed unless you would call a 12-7 defeat something. A few days later the team journeyed to Linesville to play and just to show that it did not make a differ- INTERCLASS The points for boys' interclass athletics were not obtained this year as they were in the past. The teams made points, not only by winning games, but also by completing a game, whether won or lost, and by having as many men as possible in each game or contest. The Seniors won the championship for the year by virtue of placing more men in all but one activity and also by winning each contest or the most games in any sport. The Freshmen finished in second place, being closely followed by the other two classes. In playground ball, the Seniors and Fresh- men overshadowed the other two groups, the ence to them where they played, won a tight 2-1 game. The game was to go seven innings but neither team scored until the eighth, Andover pushing over the winning tally an inning later. Williamsfield was defeated 8-3, a few days before the tournament. At the tournament, the team went up against Orwell. The Andover team played some bad baseball and at the end of two innings were on the wrong end of an 8-1 score. Then the team began to play and whittled away at the lead until when Andover came in for their last turn at bat, they were only two runs behind. Fighting to the last second, one run was scored and two were on bases when a hard hit ball landed in the pitcher's hands and the game was over, Orwell winning 9-8. Rock Creek was later defeated 9-3. With a great many younger boys interested in baseball, it is hoped that the next season will prove to be much more interesting. ATHLETICS first two finishing in a tie for first place with 43 points apiece. The faculty decided they needed a little recreation so they entered a team in the volley- ball league. Though they were a bunch of old men, they had a lot of luck, and lost only a few games out of the thirty-game schedule. The Seniors again won from the other classes in volley-ball. The track meet ended with the Seniors enjoying a clean lead over the others. How- ever, the interclass track meet showed that there are some comers among the younger students who will make things hum in later years.
