A HE SPECTATOR ' ' ii ' i ' ' ifflwiimiiiiitiii ■ HI THE SPECIllTOR :2 1 6 J €23016 FOR four years we have la bored witMn these walls, and now as we are about to leave them forever, it is not without a feeling of sadness that we say " Goodhye " to our dear Alma Mater. A WORD BEFORE Here it is. For-better or for worse. We hope better. If you think it ' s good, say so: if not, say so anyway. We wish to thank all who have aided m its puhlication. We especially thank the ad- vertisers and the advertising managers. r-% EDICATORY To our fathers and mothers who have aided and encouraged us throughout the entire course, this volume of ' ' ' ' The Spectator ' ' ' ' is afifec- tionately dedicated by the Class of Nineteen Hundred Sixteen.

It passes current ever ' where like gold. But none the less, every nation puts a different stamp on its coin- age, and each new sovereign of the realm makes some change in the design and the legend. Plato says of music : " It, like other arts, should serve the common weal ; it is false and reprehensible to declare that music exists for pleasure only Music should inspire with love for what is good and ptu ' e liad music is mure pernicious than any other evil. " Music has the power of centralization of emotions about pure sentiments, for which reason it naturally becomes a fundamental part of a course of study. In the High School there are three courses of music given : First, to those who have never ]3ursued a systematic study of music in the grades, an elementary course is given. Second, an elementary course in History of Music is offered to those in the Freshman class who have studied music be- fore. The third course is in chorus work to those in the upper classes who desire this work and read music readily. SCIENCE DEPARTM ENT The Science Department offers to the students the following course: 9th year, ist semester. General Science; 2nd semester, Botany. loth year. 1st semester. Agriculture: 2nd semester. Physiology and Sanitation, nth year. Physics. 12th year. Chemistry. Of these Chemistry is the onl} ' re- Cjuired subject, except in the " Boj-s ' Practice Course, " where Physics is also a requirement. It is hoped, by the variety of subjects offered and the flexibility of the course, to interest all students in some phase of the w ' ork. All subjects taught are correlated by means of outlines until a view of the entire field is before the student, thus he is enabled to see his particular subject in its true relation to life. No line of study prepares the individual to successfully emplo_v the things by which he is surrounded for the advancement of himself or his fel- low man, or gives him a broader view of life in all its relations, than the Science work. The Nature Study, Geography and Physiology given in the grades arc thus made stepping stones leading up to the enjoyment of the great laws and principles underlying the phenomena of the natural world. Realizing that in the field of educational endeavor no more rapid ad- vancement is being made than here, so no cft ' ort will be spared to keep be- fore the classes the latest and best in thought and text along all lines of scientific endeavor. ENGLISH English dififers in one respect from all other subjects of study. It is not only an end but the avenue of all instruction. Therefore the importance ot the English course cannot be overestimated. Four 3 ' ears are offered, three of which are required for graduation. The course in English consists of the study of composition and rhetoric, the history of American literature, the history of English literature and the study of the classics. Oral composition and memorizing choice selections of prose and poetry are important features of this course. The aims of the En- glish work are to give the student command of the art of expression in speech and writing; to teach him to read thoughtfully and with appreciation; and to form in him taste for rood reading. HISTORY Not until recently has history been gi -en a very important place in the school curriculum. It has been left for modern educators to recognize that pupils, especiall} High School pupils, are real members of society and citi- zens of a commonwealth. Out of this knowledge has grown the history that is now taught in the modern High School. In the Angola High School there are three years of History offered. Ancient and Modern are elective in the Sophomore and Junior vears. American History and Civics are required in the Senior vear. In all three years an attempt is made to make the course practical and interesting. FOREIGN LANGUAGE Latin For the disciplinary and cultural value no better subject is found than Latin. Besides giving permanent qualities of mind and character, it is of assistance to the pupil in understanding and appreciating his own language. The contribution made by Latin to our language, both as to structure and vocabulary, is readily recognized, and the value of the subject in this partic- lar is easily seen. That the pupil may have discipline of mind and thought and training in the power of expression, the Angola High School offers four years of Latin. The first year ' s work consists of a study of forms and syn- tax; Caesar ' s commentaries are studied the second year: Cicero ' s orations the third year. Latin composition is given once each week during the sec- ond and third years. A study of Virgil ' s Aeneid and a short historv of Ro- man literature is offered the fourth year. German German has been given a prominent place in the course of studv, not only in order that the student may acquire a reading and speaking knowl- edge of the language but also to become familiar with the noble and beauti- ful in literature. The Angola High School offers a four years ' course in German. The first year is devoted to the study of grammar forms with much emphasis placed upon conversation and the reading of short stories. In the second, third and fourth years, German classics are read and a review given in grammatical constructions. The second year reads such classics as " Immensee ; " the third year studies " Das Edle Blut, ' ' and " Die Jungfrau von Orleans, ' ' and in the fourth year is offered the greatest of aU German novels, Freytag ' s " Soil und Haben. " MATHEMATICS " If a boy can think in terms of millions he will sometime have millions. " The above statement is one of the greatest factors of great financial suc- cess — ner -e, work, good fortune do not ec|ual it. Some time ago a survey was made of superintendent ' s salaries and their ability to add. A direct raticT was found to exist. Underlying all exact science, business transactions, the most exact philosophy and absolute truth is mathematics. Algebra and arithmetic give a conception of general and special numbers. Numbers represent quantity of matter, dimension of space and force of energy. Geometry teaches form. Mathematics is the only formal logic to which the High School student has access. The Mathematics course is a four year course, of which three j ' ears are given to the study of pure lathematics. Algebra and Geometry, and the fourth year to Commercial Arithmetic and Book-keeping. Three semesters of Algebra and two of Geometry are required; one of Geometr)-, one of Commercial Arithmetic and one of Book-keeping are elective. Students are encouraged to continue in lathematics if they can at all adapt themselves to the study of the subject. Everyone needs the course in book-keeping to insure his private accounts against error and loss. MANUAL TRAINING The purpose of education is to train the hand as well as the mind. Hence Manual Training has become a permanent part of the course of study. The manipulation and care of tools, the sawing of boards, and the making of joints gives the hand a training which establishes a proper balance be- tween the learning and the doing. The chief aim is to give an opportunity for expression through the hand, and to de ' elop an interest in vocational activities. On the other hand, by studying the literature which deals with the life history of the material, the process in i ts manufacture, and the peo- ple engaged in the work, develops an appreciation for the common work- man who makes, with his hands, so many useful and beautiful things. Four years " work is offered : three in the grades which is required, and one in the High School, which is elective. The course consists of wood- work, including joining and cabinet making as outlined by the Progressive system of Manual Training. WHAT IS ART? " Art is the breath of life in an object. ' ' " The highest aim of art is to make some useful thing beautiful. " " Art is the best way of doing whatever needs to be done. " The quality of harmonious relationship existing between the parts and the whole, or between the maker and his material, in any field of labor con- stitutes art. We believe in the democracy of art for the people, of the people and by the people. No art is so fine, as to be unfit for daily use. The principles of art can be intelhgently presented to the understanding of the ordinary individual so that he may see their application to the affairs of his occupa- tion, his business, his profession and his home. Art is soon to be shorn of its mystery and its vagueness. That it is about to take its place as a teachable and demonstrable science, possessing a quality that is inherently divine. We must apply to the teaching of art the same pedagogical intel- ligence, the same common sense, the same preparation and the same tests that are applied to the studies of language, mathematics and the sciences, that the results from the teaching of art should be definite and tangible. Beauty is coming back to the useful arts and that the distinction be- tween fine art and useful art is to be forgotten. The teaching of Drawing leads to the studio of the painter, illustrator and sculptor. The teaching of Design leads to the home, the shop and the factory in which the child must live and work. Just as we have given up " Art for art ' s sake, " it seems evident that we are going to abandon " Draw- ing for drawing ' s sake. " In its place we shall be teaching Design, not for design ' s sake, but that it may be applied to make some useful object more beautiful. Drawing will ne ' er be eliminated from the public school courses, but will be used as an instrument in the production of beauty. Children love and construct an object and decorate it. The combined joy of making and beautifying gives the children a new pleasure in their school work. A teacher of art has an incomparable opportunity for doing a big and valuable and beautiful thing. He considers it one of his greatest duties to bring pleasure back into education. - Instead of teaching art for art ' s sake, to teach art for the children ' s sake, to satisfy their natural hunger for pleas- ure which will be appeased somehow or other. Art touches every phase of human life and every department of human activity. Not until art becomes one of the most important subjects in the school curriculum will the coming generation be able to make all useful things beautiful and be able to compete in the markets of the world with clarefully trained craftsmen of other lands. Not until art was developed in Domestic Science and Domestic Art did our children care to study Science. Children should have a definite, organ- ized outline to follow in art as is required in other subjects. Such an out- line would include: Principles of Drawing. Lettering. , Proportion. Mechanical Drawing. ' Still Life. Designing. Plant Composition. Applied Design. Perspective. Architectural Drawing. Interior Decoration. The above subjects are taught through the grades and through three years of High School. The Senior year is given to picture making. VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE For } ' ears past much effort ami money have been spent on preparation of the mind for a work in the worhl, but in spite of this expenditure of effort and money there are many misfits in life, men and women constantly chang- ing occupations, men and women making failures. This leads us to believe that it would be well to expend some time and money in teaching the young person the nature of the occupations they may choose from, and aiding him to decide, early in life, what line of work he desires to follow, for surely every normal person can find a place in life in which he can succeed. A study of vocation has been presented to the three upper grades of High School, by men and women now in the field of professional, mechan- ical, manufacturing and trade activities. This course will perhaps produce more great results than an} other course offered. More is due these men and women than we can here pay. Following is set down the names of people contributing to this course and the occupation affording their respective discussion : Supt. Adolph Seibel — Outline of the Course. Prof. Willis A.

Freshman Class History O n September 6, 1915. a wonderful event occurred which will long be remembered by the classes of the Angola High School of that year. It was on this day that the " greenest of greenies " (in the eyes of the tipper classes) entered High School. As was the custom, we were looked opon as a vacant lot. In the eighth grade some of us were wise, some otherwise, but twenty- six were wise enough to gain admission into High School. Many have join- ed us from other schools, so that we now number forty-five. We elected our class officers early in the year and prepared ourselves to participate in the activities of the school year. A ' e constitute a class having many ambitions and aspirations. Some will be poets, musicians, orators, teachers, actors and actresses, others farm- ers, athletes, inventors, aviators, and racers. There arc many others who have not stated what they wish to be. It doesn ' t make an}- difference to us how many slams we get from the other classes and instructors, because we know it is a clear case of " doing as you were done by. " ' e are, as a class, studious, quick to learn, am- bitious and energetic, ' e wish you to take note of us next year and see for yourselves what a single year can accomplish with a class which com- mands such wit and wisdom as the class of 1919. —HISTORIAN.

Our companions are books. Late the- hours we keep, And scarce to a person one word do we peep. Til we leave all for dreams of our very strict teachers, (Of which this is but one of the pre-eminent features.) At last Father Time the dread day comes bearing, Who with the highbrows their secret seems sharing; From the good gifts he brings it is a far cr} — We wish he could manage to pass this day b) ' .

Sophomore Class History This is a history of one of the most promising and popular classes in the school. We number forty-six. Of this number eight began school together and have been together through the ten years of our school life. The others have joined us in the dififerent grades. We were fortunate in having gojd teachers in all the grades. W ' hen we entered the Freshmen class in 1914, we were as green as any class that has every entered High School. We were all glad when we ceased to be " Freshies, " and assumed the more dignified name of Sophomore. A number of our boys and girls take an active part in the school athletics. Those who have talent along musical lines turn their attention more to those things. Most all of us have the ability of aggravating the teachers and low- ering our deportment, things which make ours a lively class. Two more years and then we shall leave school and turn to other things. We do not want to lose one member of our class, and hope to have every one present and taking a part in the commencement exercises in 1918. —HISTORIAN.

Junior Class History In the year of 1905. the present Junior Class of the Anc ola High School started its school career, under the leadership of our faithful and beloved teacher, Miss Parish. During this first year our ranks numbered sixty, but through the succeeding years they have been thinned tmtil now our class en- rollment is twenty-six. Only six of the original sixty are members of the present class, and of these, four have moved away and then returned. Onl}- two have always remained as members of the Angola school. During these many years of combined hardships and pleasures, we have been, perhaps, more fortunate than some, in having good teachers to help us. We will have to say that the Junior year is no exception, for though, at times, we have tried the faculty with our mischievous, and sometimes, tantalizmg ajts, they have treated us with the utmost kindness. W ' ith joyful expectation for the future we hope that instead of being de- creased, our numbers will be increased, as we start in our last year of educa- tion in the Angola High School.

Class History, 1916 While spending a little time reading in the public library at Angola, I chanced upon a volume entitled, " The History of A. H. S., Class of 1916. " As I had only a few spare minutes, I was permitted to glance over but the first few chapters, so I shall relate a small portion of the facts stated in them. The class of 1916 began its career in the first grade of the Angola High School under Miss Parish, and was one of the last classes this splendid pri- mary teacher was privileged to teach. It was the first second grade to be taught in the new building and was the first to have a class picnic while yet in the seventh grade. To mention all the incidents recorded in the history would be tiresome, but they proved that the class was one of spirit and a leader. With many members entering and leaving the class as it made its way to the eighth grade, forty-si.x finally graduated in the common branches in 1912, as one of the largest, most brilliant and popular classes ever taught in Angola. In the fall of the same year, they entered High School and were distin- guished as being the most in numbers since. In High School their record ' w as unspoiled but instead was raised to a higher standard. They were the class with whom Miss Powell began her first year teaching English in An- gola, and as Juniors were the first to honor the Seniors with both a reception and banquet. During the junior year also the Junior and Senior girls organ- ized interclass basket ball teams, and it was the Juniors who won the last game by a goodly number of points. The boys ' team, too, during the years 1915 and 1916 was comprised mostly of the members of the class of 1918. As Seniors this class showed its ability by giving the most difficult and best class play ever produced by the Angola High School, also by putting out one of the best " Spectators " that was ever on the market. On June 2, 1916, they graduated, the next largest and one of the most esteemed classes of Angola High School. However, only ten out of the thirty-one Seniors were members of the original class under Miss Parish. With this my time was up, so I was compelled to leave the most inter- esting and yet unread pages of the history of the members of the A. H. S., Class 1916, to some other one who may find the book. Senior Class Prophecy Everybody knows what great progress and advancement have been made in the use of airships and aeroplanes in the last fifteen years ; how they have caused a revolution and re adjustment of worldly matters and affairs. Who would have thought in 1916 that the airships and aeroplanes would have be- come the common mode of travel, that they would make the best form of pleasure trips. Ah, but now in the j ear Anno Domino 1925, things have so changed, that the use of the once popular automobile has declined, street cars have almost disappeared and the airship craze is on. It was June, 1925. Two of my friends and I had a short vacation in which to rest from and to forget the dreary routine of work. Going to an airship livery, we hired a machine for a short pleasure trip. The weather was ideal and the air exhilarating. While still on this trip, we conceived the idea of making an extended tour of the world. ' e descended to earth, made thorough preparation for the trip and finally started on our cruise, the most most novel and exciting ever undertaking in an aeroplane. On our way to the airship livery, we met an old friend and classmate. Glen Clark, who has become a progressive farmer educated in Purdue, and who has succeeded in forming a fertilizer which produces the same effect on the soil as the bacteria found on the nodules of alfalfa roots. Starting south- ward we soon came over Indianapolis, the state capitol, where we stopped. We looked around some time when whom should we meet in the postoffice but Harold Howell, who has become the postmaster there. In a friendlv chat with him we learned that she who used to be Mildred Hanselman is now a society leader of that city.- Heading eastward, we crossed the state line into Ohio, soon reaching Oberlin where we found Phyllis Slade and Ruth Masters teaching in the Col- lege there. From here we continued our flight, stopping at the cities of ' ashington, D. C, and Newport News. In AX ' ashington, while visiting the government buildings, we came across I Iyria Fairfield, who is employed as a chemist, to experiment on materials to replace the dyes which were sent from Europe. As we were leaving the city, we noticed that a great crowd had gathered at the dock to witness the reviewing of a new l attleship, which, we later found, had been designed by Marjorie Morgan. After a two days ' flight, we arrived in Paris, where everything was astir with the rebuilding of the ruins of the war, in which work Dono ■olfe and Leo Wilcox were the principal engineers. Incidentally they told us that Lois Redding was winning much fame as a student of art in Paris, " " e at once looked her up, and all of us attended a concert given by the famous soprano. Alma Gluck. luch to our surprise, we noticed Lois Lehman as her renown- ed accompanist. After a few days of pleasant association with our old schoolmates, we were compelled to leave, and we returned to New York Citv. " hile roam- mg around here, we met several more of our classmates, ' e attended a theatre in which we saw Tom Emerson, renowned star of the Paramount Picture Co., playing- with Jean Strew, alias Jeannette Pollock, of equal note. After this we went to " Rectors, " the famous place of amusement, where Harold Cain, with his unsurpassable talent on the clarinet, now entertains the hosts of wealthy and select people. Upon looking around we recognized a familiar face, which turned out to be that of Stanley Castell, Dr. of Philo- sophy in Columbia University. We proceeded on our journe} ' to Chicago, where we found Gaylord Aletzger receiving much praise for his success as national boss of the Repub- lican party, in the campaign of the preceding year, in which he supported " Teddy " Roosevelt as he did in our Senior History class of 1916. During our stay in this city a parade of the leading and most influential business men took place. At the head of this we recognized Erwin Mast, who now owns a controlling share of the Swift Packing Co. While looking over the Chicago Tribune one da our attention was at- tracted to a large ad. of the Cline JMcClellan law firm. We also noticed in this paper many beautiful passages of poetry to which the name of Lois Myers was signed, and we learned that all her time is occupied in contribut- ing to the Tribune. The following evening we assembled with our old-time classmates, as they had promised to take us to an evening ' s entertainment which would surprise us very much. It proved to be an entertainment in which Lolabelle Gundrum figured chiefly as a lady roller skater of world- wide fame. The following morning we started for California, but before we were half way there, we met with serious trouble which compelled us to descend to earth as soon as possible. We were soon aware of the fact that we had alighted in the midst of the lonely country of Dakota. However, in the dis- tance we saw a red building which, on further investigation, we found to be a consolidated school in which Ana Ireland and Elsie Rinehart are proving to be very successful school teachers. As soon as our machine could be repaired, we proceeded undisturbed to California. We passed over San Francisco and headed southeastward in the direction of Los Angeles. The scenery was enchanting, and as we desired to rest we alighted at a ranch where the flowers and fruit trees seemed most luxuriant. On the veranda of a charming bungalow stood a happy wife who called to us as we passed by. This was the once Daphne Goodale, the leader of our class. She read a letter to us which she had lately received from the Webb girls who are in Mexico furthering the cause of Woman ' s Suffrage with all their might and main. After a brief stay with her, we were compelled to return home, as our vacation was drawing to a close. Near St. Louis, however, we encountered Ellen Moss, who was performing daring feats in her aeroplane before thous- ands of spectators. We arrived safely in Angola, the home of good old A. H. S. As we were going to our homes, however, we might say that we were solicited for our votes by Gertrude Ingalls, who is campaigning the district as a candidate for State Senator. ANNA WAMBAUGH HENRY WOLFE BERNIECE MOODY BERT Why say more? To all A. H. S. that is enough. It expresses the friendship and esteem which is felt by everyone for our genial custodian. Friend- ship and esteem gained through long and efficient service. So once again, just Bert.

S. who were inter- ' ested in athletics, inet and organized the athletic association. Sixty-four boys and girls paid their fees and were enrolled as members. Rules and regulations were adopted and faithfully " carried out by all members during the year. Work began immediately. A committee was appointed to make a basket ball court on the south part of the school ground. The boys organ- ized and practiced there until the weather became too cold. The girls were very enthusiastic and also organized but did not begin practice until the gymnasium was procured. Many interesting games, both boys ' and girls ' were played during the winter and the High School students and people of Angola showed much enthusiasm. The Association thanks the School Board, Eaculty and citizens for their loyal support. TRACK Track athletics in the Angola High School have never been successful because of the lack of a faculty coach to direct the vork altv.ig that line. Although handicapped in this way, Angola won the county champion- ship at the Fair last fall. Representatives were present from the Angola, Flint, Fremont and Orland schools. Seeley deserves honorable mention fi_)r having made more points than any team in the meet. The Angola team was represented by the following men : Seeley, Clark, Metzger, Goodwin and Bair. Basket Ball The Ang-ola Hic;h School played real basket Ijall last winter. The team under the skillful ciaching- of J. J. Callahan, g-ained seventeen victories out of a possible twenty-one. The season proved to be the hef.t the A. H. S. has ever had. The success of the 1915-16 team was due largely to the fine leadership of " Cal, " who handled a group of young but willing boys with excellent judg- ment. As a result of his work the close of the season saw a remarka1)le in.- crease in team work and basket shooting. The boys worked together as a unit and played like a veteran team. On Thanksgiving night the team buried its old jinx and won its first game av ' ay from home in several seasons. After this the boys liad more con- fidence when playing off their own floor. Of this team which made such a brilliant record, three men graduat " : Clinc, Metzger and Emerson.

STAGE WHAT HAPPEN ED T JON ES Senior Class Play Cast of " What Happened to Jones. " Tones . Gaylord Aletzgar Ebenezer Goodly Stanley Castel Antony Goodly, D. D Dean Cline Richard Heatherly Erwin Mast Thomas Holder Dono Wolfe William Bigbe Harold Howell Henry Fuller Leo Wilcox Mrs. Goodly Jeanette Pollock Cissy Alildred Hanselman Marjorie Phyllis Slade Minerva Berniece Moody Alvina Starlight Marjorie Morgan Helma Gertrude Ingalls All those who saw " What Happened to Jones " pronounced it the best senior class play ever given by the Angola High School. It was also one ol the most successful amateur performances ' , both dramatically and financially, ever staged in the Croxton Theatre. The play, given November 5. 1915. was jjresented by a very talented cast, each one of which well represented the character that he portrayed. A new feature introduced by the Class of 1916, was a matinee given for the children of the grades. A large audience attended both performances and showed its appreciation b}- continuous laughter and applause. The play was preceded by the singing of the Class song by the entire Senior Class. The first act of the play, begins in the beautifully furnished living room of the home of Professor and Mrs. Ebenezer Goodly. Everything is in con- lusion o -er the expected arrival of the professor ' s brother, the Reverend Antony Goodly, D. D., Bishop of Ballarat. Mrs. Goodly is very much ex- cited and greatly annoyes the professor by enforcing severe household regu- lations which interfere with many of his accustomed habits. As ] Ir. Goodly is reading a newspaper, he sees the announcement of a prize fight to be held that evening. Just as he reads it, Helma, a Swedish servant girl, enters and hands him a card which proves to be a ticket to the prize fight. At this mo- ment, Richard Heatherly, the fiance of Marjorie. Ebenezer ' s daughter, en- ters, looking for the ticket. He is greatly embarrassed when he finds that the professor has found it, and to relieve the situation, persuades Ebenezer to go to the prize fight, in the interest of science. Their return is a ver • laughable incident, because the prize fight is interrupted by the police, who force them to make a hurried departure b}- way of the water-spout. They are followed by Jones, a traveling salesman, who has been at the prize fight. and is being pursued by a policeman, Thomas Holder. He disguises him- self in a suit of the liishop ' s clothing, which has been sent previous to his arrival, and deceives the policeman. . s the poHceman leaves, Mrs. Goodly enters, and he is compelled to continue the deception. In the second act, it becomes harder and harder for Jones to play the part of the Bishop. He is kept busy explaining poetry, which he is supposed to have written, to Marjorie and Minerva, Ebenezer ' s daughters, he also has trouble in deceiving Cissy, Ebenezer ' s ward, who is beginning to suspect him. He is also very much perplexed by the lovemaking of Alvina Starlight, ] Irs. Goodly ' s sister, who is engaged to the Bishop, whom she has never seen. In the meantime, a patient of the sanitarium next door, who thinks he is an Indian, has escaped and comes to the Goodly home. About the same time the real Bishop arrives and is mistaken for the escaped patient. During this act, Henry Fuller, the superintendent of the sanitarium, is intro- duced. The play closes with the discovery of the identity of Jones by Cissy, and the reuniting of the Bishop and his brother. For the curtain call of the last act, the cast gave the Senior 3 cll, which showed the universal spirit which pre ' ails in the class of 1916. Too much credit for the success of " What Happened to Jones, " can not be given Professor Charles Shank for his patience and perseverance in coach- ing the play. He is an artist in this line of work and Angola may well feel proud of him. SOCIETY SOCIETY All the spirits of Hallowe ' en were summoned to the sign of the Black Cat on Oct. 31, 19 15. After much hunting the sign was found at Sheldon ' s home. After the guests had assembled, they were lead to the basement of Waugh ' s house, from which they were taken up into the dining room for refreshments, consisting of Napoleon ' s Eye, Bloody Mary ' s Hand and many other delicacies. After this the evening was spent in general entertainment. As the night grew into the wee hours, the guests were again blindly led through various cellars of the neighborhood. Near the end of this " tramp, " thev were presented with a sack which contained the genuine repast of the evening. After reaching the hay-loft of Waugh ' s barn by means of a ladder, they ate the contents of the sack. The guests then returned to the house for singing and dancing. When they departed each acknowledged the splen- did time which he had had and pronounced Lois and Emily able hostesses for a genuine Hallowe ' en party. The Triple K Club Early in the fall the Senior girls organized what is known as the Triple K Club. This organization has been a mystery to the High School students, especially " some " of the Senior boys. The members have taken pity on these boys and have decided to reveal the pass-word which is — " (Olives. " One Friday evening in late September the K. Iv. Iv. Club was enter- tained at the home of Marjorie ? lorgan, at a sluniljer part}-. A delightful evening was spent and later, while serenading, the girls came upon an auto- mobile which stood in front of the house on the corner of Superior and Gale streets. They sang to the two occupants of the car. Evidenty the exhaust of the engine drowned their voices for there was no response from the two in the car. Leaving the poor old engine to work itself to death, the girls departed to look for a more appr eciative audience. On February 26, ' 16, the Iv. K. K ' s gave a Leap Year part ' at the home of Ellen Moss. After the girls had escorted tiie voung men to the place of the party, games pertaining to Leap Year were played. At the midnight hour a two course dinner was served, after which everj one departed, having had a delightful time. Pot-luck suppers were enjoyed at the homes of Lois Redding and Ger- trude Ingalls where the K. K. K ' s had a fine time composing songs which they pray will never reach the ears of the poor faculty — just yet. During Fair time, the K. K. K. Club had an excellent time at a slumber party given by Ellen Moss. Perhaps if one had looked into Redding ' s cider barrel the next morning he would never have dared ask the girls if the " liked " Snider. " On a moonlight night last November, Anna Wambaugh held a marsh- mallow roast for the Triple K ' s. The girls enjoyed themselves throughout the entire evening by playing out-of-door games. Later cider and nabiscos were served. After serenading the faculty, they departed for their homes having had a fine time, Last fall the Triple K ' s enjoyed the impromptu parties at the Slade cottage at Crooked Lake. One evening after school the girls were out riding in Ellen ' s car and were intending to go to a musical comedy which was to be given at the opera house that night. When they went to get their tickets thev didn ' t have enough money. Of course they couldn ' t go, but Phyllis was ready to open her cottage as a refuge for the broken hearts. There the girls had a " big feed " and finally reached home at a late hour. Each girl agreed that she had a splendid time. .Another time, the Triple Iv ' s visited the Slade cottage, remaining over night. The evening was spent in the company of popcorn and cider. Sev- eral times during the night some of the girls thought they " had seen a noise. " When they awakened in the morning they had just barely enough time to catch the car. ' Twas no wonder that Mr. Letts complained about the Civics class having such a poor lesson that morning. Junior ' s Marshmallow Roast Early in the fall, the Juniors decided to ha -e a marshmallow and frank- furt roast at I ' ox Lake. At the appointed time for starting, about twenty were assembled at the home of Emily Waugh. From there they walked to the lake. L ' jjon arriving at the desired spot for the roast, everj ' one started in search of wood which was soon heaped high and lighted. Then seated around the fire, everyone told his favorite ghost story or joke, at the same time enjoying the fun of roasting the marshmallows and frankfurts on long sticks. , t last the fire died down and the supply of marshmallows became low. After carefully putting out the last spark of fire, they started home. The night was warm and the moon beautiful, making the trip one to be re- membered by all. Chi Sigma Theta. The Chi Sigma Theta Club is a jully crowd of Sophomore girls who, lacking masculine authorit} ' in the class, " do " things right and invite whom they please to their parties. The Senior girls highly recommend the Chi Sigma Theta as the next liest club in the school. The Chi Sigma Theta girls were entertained at a pot-luck supper at the home of Mildred Wolfe on Eebruary 2, 1916. After supper the girls went to the picture show and all report a good time. The Chi Sigma girls met at the home of Pauline Hendry March 3, 1916, and enjoyed a fine supper, after which they had " great fun " dancing and singing. Later in the evening they attended the movies, after which they departed for their homes, hoping to meet again soon. Freshman Class Party. Friday e -ening, February 4, 1916, the Freshman class had its first party at the home of Prof. L. W. Fairfield. The e ■ening was spent in music and games. Refreshments were served at a late hour, when some uninvited Seniors, who doubtless thought that Freshmen needed chaperoning, ap- peared on the scene. We know that their hearts ached to think that they were not Freshmen, as they looked through the windows at the lovely re- freshments. At a late hour the guests went home, having had a very fine time, HOME ECONOMICS upon the pri ' acy and sanctity of the home rests the strength nf Ameri- can democrac} ' . The English and Cjerman nations are noted for the deep- rooted attachment of their people to the home and for their skill as home- makers. They have fonght through centuries for the preservation of then- home ideals, and have realized the nobility of the profession of home mak- ing. The home should stand for rest, peace, comfort, health and inspiration, for the true spiritual development of each member of the family. There should be unity and freedom of self expression. A democracy in the true sense of the term. There must be ideals in establishing a home. Cleanliness and orderli- ness should ])e fixed ideals, fur upon them the health and comfort of the whole family dejjend. The ideal home maker is thoughtful, cordial, polite and hospitable. Ruskin said: " If }ou ha ' e sense and feeling, determine what sort of a house will lie fit for you ; determine to work for it, to get it. and to die in it, if the Lord will. I mean one that you can entirely enjoy and manage, but which } ' ou will not be proud of, except as }-ou make it charming in its mod- esty. " The (le|)artment of Home Economics was placed in the school at the beginning of the second ' semester. Courses in cooking and serving are of- fered to the girls of the Senior and Ereshmen years, and also in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Three large, well equipped rooms. se ving room, dining room and kitchen, are used by this department. A Hit for Honor Herbert Demming frowned deeply as the contents of the letter became clear to him. Then, thinking that he had possibly misinterpreted, he read it again. His ifirst impression was correct. With features clouded by the news he turned toward his roommate. " Andy, " he said, " do you care if I leave my traps here until the end of the term? " The muscular, handsome Andy looked up from his German lesson in surprise. He supposed the jolly pitcher was joking, as was his habit. " No, I don ' t care. You may leave your household goods and ever_v- thing else as long as Mrs. Emerson doesn ' t kick yoti out. " Demmie smiled very faintly. " You don ' t understand what I mean, Andy. I am not joking this time. They have written me from home that the big store has burned to the ground. There is no insurance, and my mother has only a little money to live on. That means that H, Demming must get busy. " " But you are not going to quit college at the beginning of the spring term, and leave the team without a decent pitcher and captain? " " I am not going to leave the team without a decent pitcher, " Demming replied, " but I am compelled to leave it witliout a captain. There is no other way. ' ' Andy looked closely at Demming for a moment as if he were trying to account for his decision. " What are you going to do? " he finally asked. " Baseball. " I received an offer from the Tigers yesterday. They made me a good proposition if I would report at once, ly uncle might give me a ' good salary but I don ' t care about asking my relati es to help me. If I try out with the Tigers it will be a case of producing the goods. " How soon are you going? " " To-morrow morning, Andy, on the nine-four. No time to loaf around and say " good-bye. ' " Demming folded the letter and put it in the envelop-.. Then he began packing for his departure. " What ' s Miss Lois going to do while you are off playjng professional ball? " Andy inquired as he came in at four-thirty. The pitcher colored slightly and laughed. " I don ' t know, Andy. I guess I will go around this evening and find out. ' ' Demming made a call that evening, but no one knew exactly what hap- ipened, but it might be said that when he left he carried a strip of white paper about as long as the circumference of the third iinger on the girl ' s left hand. Demming was rated as a " second grader " so the college man reported at the Tigers ' home city, " and began work. He set his javvs and made up his mind to make good. The Tigers ' veterans did not go wild over Demmie when he appeared on the diamond. To tell the truth they thought he looked like a loser, Thej- were not accjuainted with the man and bis style. That was the reason they were surprised when he played the finest kind of base ball. Hugh Jennings, the manager, was the one man on the team who sized the newcomer up aljout right. When he shook hands with Demmie and looked into those stern, gray eves, he believed he had the player. After a week of the regular season was gone he was sure. Demmie had been compelled to C|uit college just as the spring term was beginning, and as often as possible he read a little at night to keep his studies. He also wrote letters to his mother and to Lois. Because he did not associate with the fellows outside of practice, he accjuired the reputation among a few of having a bad case of " swell head. " " He may be all right in his way, but his way is mighty queer, I ' m think- ing, " remarked " Cobb, " the center fielder. " None of him for me. " " He is just a little more ambitious than us old ducks, " Stanage, the old reliable catcher, said chuckling. " He studies when the rest of us are loafing. That is the difference. " But Denunie was jolly in his talk, and fast on the diamond, and most of his team-mates liked him. Those who did not admitted that he was a " find " in the base ball line. It was his ambition to be a pla3 ' er, and he cared very little whether they liked him or not outside of that. As the season advanced he became more and more valual)le. Jennings knew him for what he was worth, and acted accordingly. Whenever a game was to be played that took extra nerve or effort, he called on Demmie. If the team gave him anything like good support, he nearly always finished with the high score. After he had made such a record for several games, the fans began to " sit up and take notice. " Paragraphs appeared in the sport- ing columns declaring that Jennings, of the Tigers, had made a gotxl find in Demmie, the college star. The man never lost his head, howe -er, during the period of praise. He just smiled and kept on playing base ball. One day he received a letter, which at first thought seemed very good. His uncle, owner of the White Sox, had been watching his work. Having concluded that he could afford to give his nephew a better chance, he made him a handsome oft ' er. He told Demmie he thought the salary was good, but they were in the same family, and no money would be lost. Demmie wrote to his uncle and informed him that he would be unable to play with the Sox during the present season, as he was under contract with the Tigers. Thus the affair ended between Demmie and his uncle, but the letter containing the offer which had been made was lost by the pitcher, and came into the possession of a sporting writer. He almost forgot about the incident until later events caused him to remember. As the season drew near to an end, it became evident that there would be a hard fight for the penant. The Tigers and Sox were close together near the top, and the Yanks were only a little lower. In a series with the latter team, the Tigers won, and the pennant lay between them and the White Sox. A series of five games was to be played by these two teams, and the team winning the majority would be the pennant winners. The first game was taken by the Tigers ; the second and third by the White Sox. Then Oans, of the Tigers pitched a winning game, but his arm was strained, and he was out for the season. That made the series two and two. All depended on the final game. As the time for this game came, the word went around that Demmie had been chosen to pitch the game against his uncle ' s team. Then the storv of the offer of the White Sox ' s owner to Demmie was circulated. Finally the storv reached the manager. " Demmie, " began the managc- " the people are saving that your uncle has bribed you to throw this game away, ' hat shall 1 tell them? " For an istant the pitcher knew not what to say. He looked at the crowd ; he knew thcv were ([uestioning him, and into his mind came the resolve to make them know he was not a slave to money. " Tell them it ' s a lie, " he said. " If the game is lost through any fault of mine, they can shoot me ii thc ' want to. I give vou my word of honor that I will do my best. " Demmie was in a trying position. He was charged with bribery, but he resolved to clear his name and he worked as he had never worked before. 1 luring the first four innings it was one-two-three, you ' re out. lUit in the tifth the So. started the counting. One score and the bases full with no one out. Then the people saw an exhibition of pitching which caused them to shout with admiration. He fanned three men on nine balls. In the Tiger ' s tin-n at bat they failed to even up the score, and so it went until the last of the ninth inning. Stanage came to bat. He managed to get a single o er third. The next two who came to bat struck out, and then Demmie came to bat. The crowd held its breath, but Demmie gripped his bat. He knew his honor was at stake. The first ball pitched was wide. The next one went high; the third was what he had been waiting for, and with a long swing he caught it near the end of his bat. The crowd yelled like mad. iXmuiie faiily flew o er the gromul, and when the fielders found the ball he and . " " ' tanage were both across the ])late. He had won the game and pre- d his honor.

I was tossing one at facob the other day and the superintendent gave me a calling and lowered my deportment. Hang it ! That takes half the fun out of winter. Another one they sprung on me was about the lawn ( ?) they are trying to raise. They ' ve got about five spears of grass and they watch them like a bald-headed man trying hair restorer watches his hair. I bent o er one of those stems once and say, some calling. Out here in the corner of the ground they have a bird house, h ' ine bird house, for Martins, they say. lUit believe me, they have the finest flocks of English sparrows I was ever unlucky enough to see. Thev sure do keep order. ' Taint like studying in a l oiler factory as it was in the country. Just like studying at home it ' s so (juiet. On Wednes- day afternoons the music teacher plays the ' ictrola for the High School. Thev ha -e some fine pieces, 1)ut 1 like " I ' m the Ckiy, " best. Thursdays we have what the sujjerintendent calls " Wicational Guidance Lectures. " We ' ve had everyone from a doctor and farmer to a printer and undertaker. The3 ' ' ve been good, and I ' aint sure but one of them talked about the fine arts, so r ' e about decided to be an artist. Truly yours, THADDEUS. Extracts Taken from the Debating Class I Mr. C ' hairman, I adics and I lentlemen. and ( )thcr Alem1)ers of the Class: We are gathered here this day to discuss a matter of much importance, for should the (piestion at hand 1)e decided for the afiirmati -e, the School LSoard will at once l e ojjliged to ha e rush l)ids made for the erection of a new school building. The (|uestion at liand is: " Resoh ' ed. that a new building should be built instead of buying the Jordan property. " II " Oratio Pro Alma Mater " The Jordan propert} ' was bought and added to the present home of learning for the simple reason that more room was needed for new (mark well the word " new " ) studies just added to the curriculum. The present building was large enough previously to the addition to the said studies, but when more " brain food " was added ti.i the alreadx ' bursting curricu- lum, it was decided b}- the Three Wise Men that an addition should be built. They bought the said Jordan projiert} ' , and changed it into a large and beautiful Domestic Science and Art department. Is this not enough? What more would gentlemen have? What more do they wish? Is beauty of architecture so dear, or lo ■e of cubic feet of air per capita so sweet, that they would bankrupt an already " broke " school board for new glories of the builder ' s art? What do they say? They laugh at the styles of architecture in A. H. S.. styles that have been created by countless famous brick-layers, paper hangers, kalsominers, etc. They pretend to shiver at the cold and veil for heat ! Do they not know that the present heating plant is doing only about twice the work that it was intended for? Should they not thank their stars that the} ' will never know (on earth, at least) the dread effect of an over-heated building? NO! They even scorn the stoves (1880 models) in the Art r oom, and add care to an already overburdened janitor! They say we do not have cubic feet of air per capita. How do they know? Did they ever measure the air in the assembly room with a yard stick and a quart can? NO! They took the word of some building contractor or fresh air fanatic who wishes to see the beloved A. H. S. fall like a European cathedral! Where else could you find so suitable a place to study varied styles of architecture in one building? Where else could you get every change of climate experienced by a traveller going from " Greenland ' s icy mountain to India ' s coral strand, " all in one building? Where else could you get all the fresh air you needed by " whooping up " a half dozen (6) windows, thereby scattering 18,936 sheets of theme paper, adding to the comedy effect and also to the profane vocabulary of the unfortunate owners? Nowhere but A. H. S., I answer. If you had the new schoolhouse for which you clamor, you would have one monotonous style of design : yoit would get only one mono- tonous degree of heat, and only fresh air through a concealed hole in the wall. Then, too, where would the new structure be placed? We could not sadly wait while the ground was cleared and the new building was built, therefore we would have to find a new location. And where, O where, would the money ($$) come from? The cost of the purchase and reconstruction of the Jordan property was a mere mite compared with the cost of a new building. If you do not believe me (and I know you won ' t) ask the man with the Alona Lisa smile. And why do you wish this thing I demand to know? Just because Or- land. Pleasant Lake, and other cities have new and beautiful buildings and you wish to out rival them — that ' s why ! And now, fellow beings in suffering, lend me your hearts — I will re- turn them next week. How man}- of you could stand b} " , dry-eved, and watch the destruction of the dear old Alma Mater, where the very floors are soaked with the sweat of your brows (honest or dishonest as the case may l)c), where first you got your well deserved " licking, " where last you got the little learning you now have? Would you still have a new building? Is this not new enough, for was it was built in 1883? What new building would have the sacred memories of hours after school, of spit balls, of substitute teachers (especially in 8th g ' rade), of frozen radiators, or rattling windows, of creaking floors, of hand-carved desks, that we how have around us, yet which we appreciate not? Let the enemies of this dear old ruin overloaded with the rich bribes of building contractors, let them, I repeat, hurl grave statistics at us, let them heap ridicule on the very seats which we now sit in, but can they deny the justice of my statements? No, No! I know not what course of argument others may take, but as foi me, five the dear old Alma Mater, or give me a decent grade in Solid Geometry 1 I thank you ! The Play Ground One of America ' s leading educators has embodied in his creed: " I believe in pla3 " It is not only a delight but sound judgment to believe in p a.y. And it is a delight to be assured that more and more people are com- ing to believe in play. What it the philosophic basis for delighting in see- ing others play? Just this: A great school of philosophers believe that the pursuit and possession of happiness is and should be the aim of right living. The philosophic basis for considering it sound judgment to believe in play is still greater. All teaching and training is but a directing and supplement- ing of the natural qualifications of the individual. Play is natural. Play is the method that nature has of developing to its fullest capacity the seif of the individual. Too often we feel that the directing or supplementing is the reality and not only fail to give nature a chance at development, but even hinder the development that nature could give. Last summer the Board of School Trustees took advantage of the opportunity to secure material for leveling the school yard south of the main building. This was a great improvement, both as a beautifier of the school property and in enhancing the value of the yard for play purposes. For the past two years it has been the purpose of the school management to equip the school yard with appropriate and efficient play apparatus. Tlie public has responded in a wonderful way to the requests for contributions to the play ground fund — not a patron asked to aid has refused. Article after article has been procured until the following list of apparatus is now available to the children of the public schools : Sixteen see-saws accommodating sixty-four children Eleven swings accommodating twenty-two children Two giant strides accommodating twelve children Three horizontal bars accommodating several children One slide accommodating twenty-five children Basket Ball court ten or twelve children Total One hundred forty-four or more The city council, at the time of the writing of this article, is considering plans for using the school play grounds as a public play ground during vaca- tion months. This can be done by merely providing a supervisor of play fo r the three months. This will make Angola one of the cities of the nation possessing one of the five hundred public play grounds. Apparatus yet needed to make the play ground fully efficient is : Eight see-saws accommodating thirty-two children Three swings accomniodating six children One slide accommodating twenty-five children Two tennis courts . " . accommodating eight people One volley ball court accommodating twelve children One sand pile accommodating twenty children ' ° ' One hundred three children For the apparatus that we now have, much credit is due Mr. Wilcox, an efficient and willing aid in manufacturing and controlling, and to Air, F, A, Emerson, who took it upon himself to secure the slide.
