HE history of each succeeding class, as one follows another through the Ann
Arbor High School, is much the same. The class of 1926 entered the school
in September, 1922, just as many other classes have done in previous Septembers.
It was dazed by new surroundings, strange teachers, hostile upper-classmen. Event-
ually it found itself, and ventured to declare itself an entity by electing officers.
Here it showed its good sense by choosing one who is still in high school, and who
has ever been a strong, dependable member of the organization: Arthur Lehman.
In due course of time the Freshmen became Sophomores Cmost of themj and
left the guidance of Miss Keen in C-3 for the tender mercies of Miss Van Kleek,
in C-I. At the same time it descended from the balcony to the main floor for the
weekly assembly. In accordance with established tradition, the Sophomores elected
officers: this time they chose Eddie RoBare, whose fame was to grow as his
athletic prowess developed. Eddie was not destined to remain in the school his
Senior year, hoiwever, and as if in anticipation of their future loss, his classmates
proceeded to elect him president for the junior year. '
l As juniors the class of IQ26 was under the watchful eye of Miss Schaible, in
C?I7, although they were not allowed to sit in the sacred precincts. of the Seniors.
But when they became Seniors they had the room entirely to themselves. Due to
the reorganization of the high school from four to three years, C-I had become the
junior session-room. '
As Seniors the election of officers was most important, since they would have
many responsibilities thrust upon them before Commencement. Running true to
form, the class failed to follow the example of last year's graduation class, which
chose a girl for president in dehance of all tradition. Ralph Bettison was elected
to head the class. He appointed the following competent chairmen who have
assisted him in his duties: Senior banquet, Helen Lowreyg- Senior party, Karl
Klais, and Memorial, john Kraus.
The last week of the school year will not have drawn to a close before this
book is in the hands for its readers, but tradition has so firmly established the events
of Commencement week that it is safe to predict them.
Some time during the week, probably on VVcdnesday afternoon, the Seniors
will attend Class Day., Here they will listen to the following members of their
class whom they have elected:

CLASS' EssAv1sT . GNA Fizriciziz

CLASS SoNcsTER MARGARET HAWLEY
CLAss HIsToR1AN . HULDA SCHAFFER
'CLASS GRATOR ..... HOWARD SIIXION
That same week they will enjoy an elaborate banquet in the gymnasium, after
which they will dance. And on Friday, june II, in Hill Auditorium, they will
receive from the hands of Principal Forsythe a little piece of paper, which
symbolizes the successful culmination of four years of effort.

Robert Gay once said:
"If IfVisdom's ways you wisely seek
Five things observe with care:
To whom you speak, of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where."
I-IAT little gem of knowledge should be taught every freshman on his entry
into the mystic corridors of the high school, and he should be compelled to
paste it in his hat, for "the real genius of most people lies in the direction of
philosophic calm." I
VVhen I was a freshman, I looked up to the seniors with awe. They appeared
so wise, so superior, and so far removed from the world of a first-year student. If
I smiled at them, they would turn up their noses in the most prudish manner. If
I went ahead of them when passing through a door-way, they would admonish me
in the loudest tones, so that every one about could note my embarrassment. They
always made remarks about the "greenhorns," which made me feel greatly chagrined
and decidedly inferior.
But still I admired them, looked up to them, envied them, and respected them.
I tried to make myself realize that they were engaged in the higher and sophisti-
cated reiiections of life, and could not bother with such an insignificant piece of
humanity as a freshman. However, my proud spirit rebelled at being "lorded over"
by one who was not a teacher or a parent, but merely a fellow student, at least we
were always addressed as fellow-students.
I had not then been enlightened with the advice of Gay, so I decided that I
would put forth all my efforts to gain some of the Wisdom of the seniors. I sec-
retly hoped that they would condescend to help me solve some of the baffling prob-
lems which loomed up ahead of me. I had a very scant knowledge of the science of
mathematics, and when the high school teachers tried to "spoof" me by telling me to
use letters instead of numbers to find the "unknown", I was utterly swamped.
I tried in every conceivable way to figure it out, and even followed the example
of another who suffered from the lack of mathematical knowledge and tried to be-
come friendly with the letters: angle A, I called Archibald, B, Bertram, C, Claud-
ius, D, Dolores, and so on. But no results appearing, I finally decided to gather up
all my courage and ask one of ,those elevated seniors who appeared to be just
bubbling over with wisdom. A
I watched my chance, and one day I saw two juniors and a senior coming
toward me down the corridor. I quickly put on my most courageous aspect 5 when
they came near to me, I stepped up and stopped them.
With apologies to Coleridge, here is what took place:
LITERARY ' 7
It is a verdant Freshman
And he halteth one of three g
"By thy trembling knees and thy chattering teeth,
Now wherefore stopp'st thou me?
"My class-room door is closing now,
And I'm a Senior wiseg
My class is metg my task is setg
They await my prompt replies V'
He holds him with a trembling handg
"I have a task," begs heg
"I really cannot understand
VVhat X plus Y may be l"
He gazes with an eye so wild
As from a frenzied brain,
He begs as might a three years' child
The Senior to explain.
"Hands off I Unhand me, verdant one,"
Came in a mad regret,
"My high school course is almost run,
I haven't found out yet!"
The Freshman turned him in despair
In other eyes to gaze,
"Whe1'e is the answer? Wliere, O where P"
Filled all his Freshman days.

BY PAUL STANCHFIELD
HEOPHRASTUS ASTERISK had always been noted for his dogged perse-
verance. In fact, the cloggedness of his perseverance had often been re-
marked upon. Wheiiexfer Theophrastus decided to do a thing he either did it or
died in the attempt, and since he was still alive at the time our story opens, we
must conclude that he had always perservered in whatever he had decided to do
until final success had crowned his efforts. Sometimes, of course, Theophrastus's
determination led to rather ludicrous results. Once, for instance, in the company
of a few friends, Theophrastus was engaged in throwing snowballs at a tree sev-
eral yards in the distance. Now T heophrastus was a rather poor shot, and al-
though all of his friends had hit the tree at least three times before the first half
hour was up, Theo had scarcely come within a rod of it. But was he disheartened?
No! He only vowed that he too would hit the tree before he went home to supper.
Supper that night he had none, for the next morning when his friends went to
school, there was Theophrastus, shooting wearily but determinedly in the general
direction of his target. His friends could not prevail upon him to leave the spot,
and so he stayed for three more hours until he got the inspiration of going closer to
the tree. By then he was almost exhausted, but with a last mighty effort he
crawled to a spot two feet from the forest giant and with his last bit of strength
hurled a hunk of snow, successfully at last.
Vfhen he recovered from pneumonia three months later, Theo's heart was
glad with the thought that he had not given up to defeat, but had stuck to his post
until the end. And that he was not like others, who would have given up after il
few hours of unsuccess, but had persevered till hnal victory had been his reward.
In school T heophrastus was that kind of a student who is never flunked, but
on the other hand never rises above a C. Theo's penta-weekly reports were always
thesame-a list of marks consisting of a C, followed by two more C's and then
another of the same. His friends would often remark upon the unfailing regularity
of his grades. "Think you'll ever get an A, Theo ?" they would ask with a look on
their faces that showed that they were absolutely certain that Theo never would.
Theophrastus often grew irked by this attitude, and one day when he heard his
worst enemy say Qin a stage whisper, solely for Theo's benefitj that he would be
willing to bet a dollar that Theo didn't even know what an A looked like, Theo-
phrastus' wrath rose up within him, and he swore that he would get an A before he
ever left the school. Two years later, when he should normally have graduated
from high school, he refused to accept his diploma, for he had not yet gained the
coveted A. '
Sixty years later there could have been seen in the same high school a senile,
bent, wearied but determined looking old man. A strange, discouraged look would
sometimes flit across his Visage, but it would give way always to the same look of
dogged determination that had marked him from the common throng in his younger
days. Often he was heard to mutter to himself when he thought no one was within
hearing. "An AI.,-I'll never give up. I shall get one yet I ! Aye. An A."
One day Theophrastus, for he it was, failed to show up in any of his classes.
He had fallen ill, and it was later announced to his classmates that his physician
had given him but twenty-four hours to live. Next day it was announced that he
was still conscious, but that the end might come at any minute.
A In Theophrastus, room a strange scene might have been seen that night, a
scene unparalleled in the annals of the world. A doctor and three anxious
nephews sat in the sick room. Theophrastus was white as death, but still his eyes,
the only parts of his person apparently alive, shone forth their message of de-
. . ,, . Q v - b I n
termination. It is the strangest case I have ever seen," the physician was -saying.
"His heart stopped beating several hours ago, but still the will to live keeps the
vital spark in his body." , . y
The lips of the patient moved, slowly and lifelessly, as the lips of a mute might
quiver yet make no sound. And then issued forth, in a voice unearthly, but audible
through all the room, these words, "The A! I cannot die yet, for I have not got
the A. I must live on until I get it. The A it bt W I-Iere the ethereal voice died
away to inaudibility. For atmonient no one spoke. Each glanced at the others,
looks showing their astonishment far better than any words could describe it.
This condition of living death continued for some time, and once a day Theo-
phrastus would mutter something about his A-. This was the only sign of life,
for breathing had long since ceased, even his heart had stopped beating, and all
vital processes were suspended, yet his dogged perserverance would not give up
hope of the A. Pity Hlled the doctor's soul for his patient who was dead yet
would not die: whose heart had long since ceased to beat, yet whose brain still held
steadfastly to its vow of getting the A.
At last the physician demanded a special dispensation from the school board,
and after the necessary red tape had been gone through, a special A in English 9
Ca course which had been created solely for Theophrastus's benehtj, was awarded.
That night, when T heo's voice began the usual sing-song chant, the doctor quietly
said,."Here is a credit slip, Mr. Asterisk, giving you an A in English 9. It has been
mislaid for some time, but now I am glad to present it to you."
At these words Theoprastus' long still form seemed to assume new life, and
his eyes flashed vindication. The doctor held the slip before his eyes, and when he
made sure that the slip was authentic, Theophrastus said weakly, "THE A! I am
content", and closed his eyes. And as the spark of life left his form, the body of
Theophrastus Asterisk, long kept alive only by his invincible will power, was gone,
and in its place was only a small pile of dust.
BY JOHN PICKERING V
E,ARcthe Alps, by a quiet branch of the Inn River, there is a tiny T yrol village
i , -I which has the peculiar fame of being nameless, and further, of once having
been possessed of an idol. At the end of the single thoroughfare of the village,
whereit might be seen by all who might choose to look to the westward, was a
boulder, topped by a crude wooden figure, with one hand extended, palm open and
upward, and with its rough, too-large head adorned by a circlet of iron like a crown,
s'et'with'a largered stone. Beyond these characteristics, there was nothing which
might catch attention except that oneleg was hinged at the hip. When the priests
of the nameless village had made the figure, they had intended that it should have
its limbs pivoted, as to make it possible for them to change the idol's posture in the
night, so that the populace of the town might awake some morning to find the idol
kneeling, or perhaps, on the day when the tithes should be paid, with hands and
arms extended to receive that which the people must bring, but the plan was too dif-
ficult, and the body of the idol too heavy and ungainly, so only the leg was left
pivoted, and only the arm left extended.
Of the six who built the idol, five were gone. Two had, one day, set out
towards the mountains. As darkness began to fall that night the idol's leg was
seen by some to swing, causing the figure to give the impression of walking. The
burgomaster said that the wind blew the leg back and forth. The people said,
afterwards, that the idol had followed the two priests that night. In the morning,
the priests were found in the snow, which was red, as someone observed, likevthe
stone in the idol's crown. So, although the burgomaster said that, in the darkness,
the priests had slipped from a ledge above, the people said that the idol had fol-
lowed and pushed them off.
Another priest had been seized with a sickness when walking down the street
at sunset. He fell and died in the arms of the townspeople who ran to help him.
The setting sun dyed the whole scene red, red as the stone in the idol's crown.
Gf the three remaining priests, two had met accidents from which they re-
ceived mortal wounds, while returning homeward from collecting money to add
to their already large hoard. This was made up of tithes, and perhaps other reve-
nues which the priests never mentioned, and which the people dared not mention,
although they sometimes remarked to each other that priests should content them-
selves with tithes. Some of these who had found the two priests said, even though
the burgomaster denied it, that the gold which they clenched seemed redder than the
metal is wont to be,-red, as was suggested, as the stone in the idol's crown.
At last only one of the six priests remained, but even as he grew older and
feebler, he grew more impatient with the people than all six had been, in his de-
mands for tithes, and other moneys, to swell his pile of money. With the childish-
ness of age upon him, he de1nanded that the money be put in the outstretched hand
of the idol, for the idol was his. He had conceived the idea of building it.
The people said yes, the idol was his. They further remarked, darkly, that of
the five who had helped to construct it, none had died peacefully, nor would he,
unless the idol might be kind to him. But the idol seemed to be the slave of its
originator. The great red stone failed to cast a malignant glow over the last old
priest as it had the rest, and he went out every tithe day, and took the coins from its
gaping palm. i
One morning the idol was not on its pedestal. The people went to see, and
found it lying on the ground with the sixth priest pinned beneath it, crushed by its
ponderous weight. Strangely, as he lay there, the cold, stark claw of the priest
clutched the great red stone which had jarred loose from the idol's crown.
The burgomaster said that he must have pulled the figure over as he climbed
up to reach the tithes. The people said that the idol had tried to walk the night
before. They declared, perhaps rightly, that the idol had killed all six of the
priests now 5 that the idol had not been pulled over at all, but that it had tried to
step toward the base priest, and had caught him.

T was an evil night. N o one could deny that. Through the pitchy darkness the
rain fell in torrents, transforming the ground into plains of mud, the sidewalks
into rivers of turbulent waters. Professor james Van Dusen, lecturer in a course
on concentration in the local university, halted suddenly on his way down the
quiet street, and sought shelter under a drug-store awning from the driving rain.
It was after a particularly hard day's work, and his mind did not seem to function
Now where was he going? Oh, yes. It dawned upon him slowly. He was on
his way to the home of his beloved, to ask her to become his wife. Ah, he remem-
bered now. He had the engagement ring right there in his coat pocket. He felt for
it to reassure himself of its presence, but to his surprise, it was not there. A
frantic search of every possible place upon his person where it could have been
lodged, did not reveal the precious gem.
There was nothing to do but return to his room and look for it. XV ith heavy
heart he retraced his steps through the pelting rain, and in a short time reached the
house in which he roomed. Apparently no one was at home, for there was not a light
in therplace. The professor felt for his key. At least that would be there. But
no, he had mislaid that also. Upbraiding himself for his carelessness, he searched
for an open window, and discovering one, clambered into his room.
Now to look for the ring! It must be in his bureau drawer. He started
across the room, when a black shape loomed up in front of him. It was a man,
bending over his open drawer, apparently looking for something. "Perhaps he too
is looking for my ring," thought the professor, and with this thought in mind, he
said, "Have you found the ring, my good fellow ?" VVith a muttered curse, the
man straightened up and leapt through the open window, leaving the drawer open
behind him. "How peculiar I" thought the professor. "Wl1at could I have done to
offend him ?',
He dismissed the incident from his mind, and began his search for the ring.
A thorough examination of the whole room was of no avail. XV hat could he do
now? Almost frantic with despair, he determined to buy another ring. After all,
what was the cost of a mere trinket, as compared with so wonderful a girl as was to
become his that evening! The professor clambered out through the open window,
and, cutting across muddy lots in his haste, finally reached the jeweler, and pur-
chased the ring. A few minutes later he presented himself at the home of his
would-be spouse, a weary, bedraggled figure. He rushed into her divine presence,
and launched into the great question. "Dearest," he cried, "T have something to ask
you. VV ill you become my wife ?H He drew forth the newly purchased ring, and
grasped her hand, to place it upon her finger. My God! The missing ring was
on that finger. "Oh, james," cried his beloved, "we were engaged early this
Uhr spirit Htlnuea
BY PAUL STANCHFIELD
HAVE always been interested in the study of psychic and supernatural phe-
nomena. In fact, the study of such phenomena has been the all-devouring pas-
sion of my life. I have devoted myself to musings over the great mystery of life
after death, rather than to the more crass and common things of life. Indeed, it is
due to the fact that I often fell asleep in classes while making my more abstruse
observations that I was undeservingly expelled from high school during my fourth
semester as a freshman.
I had always hoped to behold some actual manifestation of spirit existence in
the great Beyond, but, until the night of which my narrative treats, none had come
my way. On this night I was engrossed in .reading Einstein's "Theory of Relativ-
ityl'-or maybe it was Darwin's "Origin of Species" Qmy mind has never been
quite clear upon that pointj, when, for some unaccountable reason, I fell asleep.
Perhaps this was a reversion to my schoolday custom 5 perhaps it was a plan of
Fate, to prepare me for the great visitation that was to come.
I know not how long I slept. It seemed but a moment before I was awakened
by a dog, ominously howling at the moon. After a moment's silence, I heard a dis-
tinct knocking at the door-three long raps immediately followed by six short ones.
Instantly alert, I hastened to the door, and threw it open. There was no one there!
Disgusted that my senses had so betrayed me, I flung it shut with a prodigious slam.
A sudden cry rent the air, echoing disrnally in my ears. Knowing that there must
be someone or soinetltiug there that I had missed in my first hasty look, I again
opened the portal. The hall was empty!
As I stood dumbfounded, gazing at nothing, I heard footsteps, made by un-
seen feet, going past me into the room. They crossed to the table and then, before
my startled eyes, the pages of a book were turned, and a chair, by 710 C1-IPPC?-7'6'7'lf
agency, was lifted and set down. A clock struck twelve.
Slowly a misty cloud appeared in the vicinity of the chair. It was formless.
In fact, it had no form, but changed from one shape to another with almost light-
ning-like rapidity. But slowly, before my very eyes, the cloud took definite shape.
I saw two eyes, psychic and ghostly, peering at me from over a ghostly mustache.
As I watched, the cloud merged into semi-solid subst C d f- 1
mist emerged the ghost.
I-Ie was not a very ghostly ghost, as I have always imagined ghosts to be. In-
deed, I should have thought him some true human being, who had entered while I
slept, but for the fact that through his waistcoat I could perceive the outlines of the
bookcase before which he was standing. He was a short, henpecked-looking spirit,
about live feet six and three-quarters, as well as I ld ' Q1 - - '
. cou Ju ge. From his upper
left hand pocket protruded a ragged piece of ectoplasm. The most remarkable
thing about him was the fact that the nose was entirely lacking from his greenish-
colored face. b
Evidently he noticed my astonishment at its absence, for h
"It is through your own act that the nose which you do not see is missing When
ance, 'tn tom tie clearing
e thus addressed me'
you first slammed the door in my face my nasal appendage was entirely severed.
Even now I am awaiting a new one from the Commissary Department.',
The spirit made a few mystic passes in the air, turned thrice around, and seized
a new green nose from the empty air! As soon as he had firmly attached it to his
visage, he spoke again, with a melancholy voice. "I have heard that you, john
Ii1'1'lICl'100, are an open-minded person, so it is to you that I have come in my ex-'
tremity. My wife, alas, is angry at me. She dislikes the neighborhood in which we
live, claiming that the rumbling of the omnibus keeps her awake at night. She
even threatens to divorce me unless I move to some quieter vicinity. Of course it is
impossible for me to move my comparatively heavy furniture, for I am entirely
composed of gaseous substances and peroxide vapor. QHis formula, as I later
learned, was BGCOI-IDM . I-ICOIID. Furthermore, spirits, through long experi-
ence solely at seances, have lost all power to move furniture in any direction but
straight up and down. And so I cannot move, unaided. My wife-I could not live
without her. And so I would be forced to the drastic measure of self-destruction."
QIt seems rather strange to think of a ghost, already dead, committing suicide, but
then, ghosts are wry unusual personsj "But you can easily carry all of our furni-
ture in one load, for its total weight is only six and seven-eighths milligrams. Do
not fail me."
I could never refuse so piteous a plea, for I have always been kind-hearted, in
a moment I decided to help the spirit move. In half an hour we were at the ghost's
home, which, I learned, was invisible. However, the spirit kindly materialized it for
me, and the job of loading was soon under way. Great difficulty was experienced
in balancing, for a mass of thirty-three bushels Qas I estimatedj with a weight of
less than seven milligrams, was rather unwieldly. Twice I dropped the load, but
since the speed in falling of so light a substance as ghost-furniture is practically nil,
I was able to catch it long before it touched the ground.
It was perhaps eight A. M. before the load was piled, in a tall column, above
me. The ghost obligingly made it invisible to all but myself, lest I attract attention
on the street. The way led through the business section, replete with traffic, and I
pursued, I fear, a rather erratic path, for the balancing of the furniture still caused
me trouble. The shouts of automobilists who had steered their cars into telephone
poles or plate glass windows to avoid colliding with me followed my route, but I
was oblivious of their selfish wrath. I went on, still wobbling occasionally.
A scion of the law accosted me. ''VVhazzamatterwidyoo ?" he asked fero-
"Me ?,' I said sweetly. 'Tm just transporting furniture for a friend."
"VVhere? I don't see none," he averred.
"VV hy this that I'm carrying, of course. Cau't you see that table, and the
beds, and those chairs up there ?"
"Naw. There ainlt none there. You've just been drinking too much. I
guess I better call the wagon."
I remember nothing of the next few minutes. I first regained consciousness in
the psychopathic ward, where I had been sent for mental observation. They say
that I was only somnambulating, and that the ghost was only a dream, but I know
AST year's Optimist compares favorably with any of its predecessors. From
the time of the appearance of the first number the work has gone steadily
forward under the sterling leadership of Vernon Dick, editor, and Charles Kingsley,
business manager. The splendid cooperation of the staff was one of the greatest
factors contributing to the year's success. No changes were made in the form of
the paper, a music department was inaugurated, and a humorous column known
as "Lunacy, Ltd." made its first appearance. But although no startling innova-
tions have been incorporated in the Optimist, every effort has been made to have
each department a little better than ever before.
It is impossible to over-estimate the influence of a school paper upon a school.
Once a week the paper reaches, directly or indirectly, the majority of the student
body, and so has a great power to uphold and advance the standards of the school.
This the Optimist has at all times attempted to do, and, keeping the publication
always clean and interesting, it has tried to encourage school spirit and loyalty.
This .yeai-'s Optimist is a far different paper from its first ancestor, a four-
page, three-column sheet which was first published in 1915. For three years the
paper was printed in about the same form, but in IQI8 it was discontinued on ac-
count of the 'war. i In 1919, however, publication was resumed, and two years later
the paperfwas enlarged so that it consisted of six larger pages. In IQ23 the
Optimist first appeared in its present form, with more space accounted for in four
greatly enlarged pages. Every staff has endeavored to make the paper a little better
than the one preceding it, and it is believed that the 1925-1926 staff has not failed to
do its bit to make the Optimist a iner, more inspiring publication. N.

S a member of the Michigan State High School Oratorical Association, Ann
Arbor was represented by two contestants in the su'b-district contest: Lucile
George and Nicholas Dinu, in declamation and oratory respectively. Dinu was
awarded first place for his oration, "The Foreign-American", and so was entitled
to enter the district contest, which was held at Ann Arbor.
The other public speaking meet of importance was that of the Peninsular
League, which is composed of several of the larger high schools of the state of
Michigan. In the local contest joseph Zwerdling, -with his oration, "The Bill-
board of Crimew, was awarded first place, and represented Ann Arbor High in the
state meet. This contest was also held at Ann Arbor.
The Ann Arbor High School was extremely fortunate this year in securing
Miss Maysel Evans to take charge of the debating and oratory. Under her able
direction the high school debaters and orators have made enviable records during
the past year.
HE year IQ26 was a banner year for Ann Arbor High School debaters. The
.new coach, Miss Maysel Evans, faced by the problem of developing a team
after three veterans of last year's squad had graduated, produced a trio of debaters
who turned in the best record ever made in the history of Ann Arbor high school
debating. This team, composed of Nicholas Dinu, joseph Zwerdling, and Howard
Simon, defeated four of the best teams in the state League by unanimous decisions.
In the first League debate of the year they' avenged the defeat suffered at the
hands of Pontiac in 1925 by winning a unanimous decision over that team. The
next contest was with Highland Park, a team coached by Miss Anne ilX'TCGr111'k,
former Ann Arbor coach, again the judges recognized the superiority of the local
trio by giving them a unanimous decision. - '
Then they changed sides, and the same team continued to represent Ann Arbor.
ln the last two League debates of the year they defeated Albion by a unanimous
decision, and Lansing by a two to one decision. Having amassed a total of I5 out
of a possible I6 points, they gained the right to enter the elimination contests,
being the second Ann Arbor team ever to win that privilege. In the hrst round the
local trio eliminated Detroit Central, gaining their fourth unanimous decision of
the year. In the second round, however, they were eliminated by Kalamazoo.

55 RIPPING hither, tripping hither, nobody knows why or whither." So
the third annual high school opera, "Iolanthe", 'by Gilbert and Sullivan,
began. A murmur of approbation ran through the audience when the curtain
rose to reveal a beautiful woodland setting, with a fountain playing softly under
colored lights. The music of the overture was gay and tunefnl, setting the note
for the whole score. All at once a dainty fairy appeared, then another, and an-
other. Finally a whole troupe of fairies came tripping out, clad in diaphanous
robes of yellow, green, blue, orchid, and pinlc. This lovely beginning was a
fitting prelude to the whole opera, which captivated its audiences at every per-
Three performances were given in all: the opening night, VVednesday, March
31, was for the general public, a matinee on Thursday, April I, was given for the
children, while the third performance Thursday evening was complimentary to the
many teachers from all over the state who were in attendance at the annual
Congratulations are due every one who was connected with the opera in any
way: to the dancing fairies and stately peers of the chorus, to the principals, who
performed in a truly professional manner, to Mr. Fred Lewis, of the University
School of Music, who trained and directed the excellent orchestrag to Mrs. june K.

HE Orchestia has linished its second year under the direction of Mr. Maddy.
It has grown in numbers from a mere handful to a total of forty members.
Its personnel this year was practically identical with that of the band, members
alternating instruments to suit the occasion.
Last fall the orchestra laid plans to give a series of concerts in Pattengill
auditorium during the year. This it succeeded in doing, and made a very creditable
showing. Besides ensemble and solo numbers by its own members it brought ex-
cellent soloists from outside. The series was a success both Financially and artisti-
cally, and it is to be hoped that next year's orchestra may do the same thing.
The orchestra played frequently at assembly programs, and furnished music
for the annual Honor Banquet in December. At a spring banquet for members
only, membership pins were awarded, those who had been members for three years
receiving a gold ping for two years, a silver ping and for one, a bronze.
Of especial interest to members was the National Qrchestra composed of 250
high school pupils from all over the United States which played in Detroit in
April: Four members of the Ann Arbor High School Orchestra were fortunate
enough to be chosen: Frederick Arnet, Charles Martin, Douglas Hoard, and Lyman
Fisher. Mr. Maddy conducted.
On May I4 members of the orchestra, along with the other musical organiza-
tions of the high school, journeyed to Ypsilanti. Here they participated in a dis-
trict music contest, which was preliminary to the state contest, which has done much
to stimulate interest in high school music, and especially instrumental music.
From among the members two musical organizations have been formed, a
string quartet and a saxophone quintette. These have appeared 'both on the
orchestra concert programs, and on separate occasions. Individual members who
have appeared as soloists include Geraldine Schlemmer, Ruth Pettibone, Rollo
Palmer, Calvin Buzzo, Frederick jolly, Frederick Arnet, and Keene Stollsteimer.
On the whole the orchestra has been a decided asset to the school. It has given
musical instruction to individual members who might never have received it other-
wise, and it has furnished entertainment many times for the entire school body.

HE past year has been a momentous one for the band. Early in the fall, Mr.
Maddy issued a call for players, and managed to get out a handful of those
who had played the previous year, This small group of loyal supporters appeared
at the foot-ball games during the fall season, but it was not until Thanksgiving Day
that the people realized how hopelessly inadequate the band was to represent a great
school like Ann Arbor High. On this occasion the band was entirely eclipsed by
the Flint organization, which boasted of forty members splendidly uniformed.
Following this humiliating showing, the Student Council m-ade the first move
to improve conditions by holding a tag day, to raise money for instruments and uni-
forms. It raised about 3120, which was entirely inadequate. However, the Times
News gave the matter considerable publicity, with the result that Mr. joseph
Arnet consented to act as chairman of a committee to secure funds from the busi-
ness men of the town. About two thousand dollars was realized in all, and much
of this was expended immediately on new instruments and attractive uniforms.
The re-organized band, forty strong, wearing its new uniforms, appeared for
the first time at a meeting of the High School Parent-Teachers' Association. Since
then it has played at many school activities, including the basketball games, and
has made a showing of which the school may well be proud. The purple suits with
capes lined with white satin are hne enough for any school. VVilliam Inglis has

HE Girls' Glee Club was divided into two distinct groups for rehearsals this
year, and met during school hours. The groups combined, however, for
public appearance. The girls iirst appeared in assembly in the fall, and again at
Christmas time, when they rendered a program of Christmas carols in collabora-
tion with the Boys' Glee Club. They also sang before the W'oman's Club of Ann
Arbor during the Christmas season.
Under the able leadership of Miss Dorothy Paton, who directed the club foi
the first time this year, the members made such progress that it was not necessary
to call in recruits for the spring opera. Consequently the chorus of fairies in
"Iolanthe" was composed entirely of members of the glee club. The club went to
Ypsilanti on May I4 with the other musical organizations to take part in the
district music contest which was held there preliminary to the state contest at
An innovation which met with great approval was the use of uniform dresses
made of black satin trimmed with white collars and cuffs and White ties. Clad thus

ISS Dorothy Paton directed the Boys' Glee Club as well as the girls' this
year, and was equally successful, The boys appeared in assembly several
times, where they were enthusiastically received. They also sang at a meeting of
the Parent-Teachers, Association, and supplied all the members for the men's
chorus of "lolanthe."
Four of its members, Gscar Haab, Otto Haab, Luther Boes, and Roland
Steinke appeared frequently in a male quartet. VV ith the girls the boys sang in a
mixed glee club.
Twenty-four members went to Ypsilanti May I4 to enter the district music
contest. No officers were elected this year, as they were deemed unnecessary. On
the whole the club has had a most successful year, with prospects excellent for the

N MAY I4 and I5 the Senior Play, "The Chinese Lantern," by 'Laurence
Housman, was presented to audiences more delighted than ever with the
annual production. Housman's masterpiece was made fanciful by many colorful
costumes and clever lighting effects. It was cleverly directed by Mrs. Iune Simpson.
The plot is laid in a Chinese studio, or "shop," owned by Mr. Qlangsti, an
artist. The height of his career is past, but he tries to teach the art students under
his guidance the wonderful methods of Vtfiowani. The masterpiece of this great
artist is in the studio, and legend says that after he had finished the painting, he had
entered into it. None of the students find any truth in the story, but Tikipu, a
servant who has the soul of a true artist, believes it. To try to capture Wiiowanfs
art, Tikipu copies the picture at night. He tells no one of his secret but Mee-Mee,
a little Korean slave girl whom the Olangstis have bought. He is discovered, how-
ever, by Mr. Glangsti and forbidden to attempt the painting again. In dejection,
Tikipu appeals to Wfiowani, and slowly the picture comes to life. Wfiowani talks
with Tikipu and they both enter into the picture.
The third act takes place three years later. which is the year in which Mee-
Mee's birth-star has said she should be married. The star also has said that the
man who marries her will be a great artist. For that reason she has been
brought to be the wife of Yunglangsti. whose only ambition is to be a grocer.
NVhile dressing in preparation for her marriage, she says farewell to all familiar
objects. for she intends to poison herself because Tikipu, whom she loves, has never
returned. While contemplating her death, the picture once more moves. Wfiowani
admonishes Mee-Mee to wake Tikipu gradually. Tikipu then appears and comes to
the realization that he loves Mee-Mee. They run off to marry, which means that
he will become a- great artist.

HE Shakespearean Circle has again had a successful year in dramatics, two
plays being presented in assembly. The first semester, "The Man in the
Bowler Hatu, by A. A. Milne, was well received by the school, While the second,
-"The Wonder Hat", a play by Ben Hecht and Kenneth Goodman, was enacted with
great success. Thesmeetings of the club arefheld. every other week in the homes
of the various members, at which one-act plays are presented. These plays are
presented more or less informally, with casts so chosen that all the members have
an opportunity to demonstrate their dramatic ability. The casts for the semester
productions are then picked from those showing the greatest ability.
In accordance with the custom of the Shakespearean Circle, .a playwriting
contest was again held. Any student in the high school was eligible to submit an
original one-act play. The prize this year was won by john Koch, with his play
entitled "Dark". It was not presented in assembly because of difficulties in inter-

HE Non-Athletic Board of Control has jurisdiction over all school affairs not
involving athletics. It consists of two faculty members, a member of the
junior class, and a member of the Senior class, both elected by the student body.
During the past year, aside from its regular duties of generally supervising
school parties, considering the rules governing the various school organizations,
and similar problems, the Board has introduced the student activity point system.
This system 'assigns to each extra-curricular activity a certain number of points.
No student may exceed ten points unless he maintains an average of "B", in
which case he is allowed an extra activity point for each honor point above eight.
A record of each stuclent's activities is kept in the office of the chairman.

55 REAT oaks from little acorns grow." Seventeen years ago, Superin-
dent-Emeritus Herbert M. Slauson Qthen superintendent of schoolsj
tendered to a few fortunate students in the Ann Arbor High School a banquet, in
recognition of certain activities in which they had made themselves conspicuous.
Thef idea appealed to the imagination, and the event was repeated the following
year. It became a tradition of the school, and grew to such proportions that it was
finally taken over by the Board of Education.
The seventeenth annual honor 'banquet of the Ann Arbor High School was
given by the Board of Education in the school gymnasium on the evening ot
December II, 1925. More than 250 guests were present. These were students who
were being honored for various reasons: there were pupils from the honor rolls of
the four classes, there were orators, declaimers, and debatersg there were football,
basketball, track, cross country, tennis, swimming, and gymnastic stars, there were
editors and business-managers of the student publications, there were musicians,
there were the senior players, and there were those who had made a perfect atten-
dance record for from one to seven years.
When the guests entered the room to the strains of the high school orchestra,
they found the gymnasium transformed. Soft candle light revealed the attractively
set tables, decorated with miniature Christmas trees, while at the far end of the
room a huge tree glittered with many lights and tinsel ornaments. Over head the
rafters were concealed by a canopy of blue crepe paper spangled with gilt stars.
The program was as unique as the decorations. It was entitled "The Solar
System", and was as follows: '
Uranus, the Subtle Influence QDebating, Oratory, Declamationj . .joy Vogel
Mars, the Mighty in Battle CAthleticsj ..................... Fred Werber
Saturn, the Most Beautiful CDramaticsj .... .. ....... Pearl Jones
Earth, Always Re-liable fAttendancej ....... ...Charles Kingsley
Mercury, the News Carrier fPublicationsj .... ....... V ernon Dick
Venus, Brightest of All CScholarshipj .................. Sigrid Christensen
Mr. Sunderland, "The Sun", acted as toastmaster, and with many witty re-
marks introduced the speakers, who acquitted themselves nobly. During the
evening Miss Geraldine Schlemmer sang two solos, and the program was concluded
with the singing of the school song, "T he Purple and the White."
The Honor Banquet has become an institution and a tradition in the Ann
Arbor High School. It offers public recognition to students who excel in various
ways, and furnishes an incentive for scholastic endeavor. It is to be hoped that
it will continue to be a feature of high school life for many, many years.

HE Student Council of the Ann Arbor High School has completed two suc-
cessful years of existence. During the first semester of this school year
a "pep" meeting was held and cheer leaders were chosen. The Council cooperated
with the Non-Athletic Board in sponsoring more school parties. A successful
tag day was held, which raised S120 to help purchase uniforms for the band. This
was the first step towards the 31,700 which was later raised by citizens. Commit-
tees were chosen to meet athletic teams. During the second semester classes B, C
and D basketball teams held the regional tournament in the high school gymnasium.
They were met by a Council committee who made them feel at home. At the time
of this tournament an information desk was also conducted.
A Clean-Up campaign was held under the supervision of the Council in the
spring. Boxes, wherein the students could place their suggestions, were put in the
various session-rooms. I
Members of the Council feel that they have had the cooperation of the school
and that the Council has justified its existence.

HE Girls' League, which was organized some ten years ago, has had a very
successful career. This is due largely to the splendid work of the session-
rfoom teachers, Miss Schaible, Miss Van Kleek, and Miss Keen. The purpose of
the League is to help to create friendship and sociability among the girls. Any
high school girl is eligible to membership. Meetings are held once a month, in the
auditorium, after school. This year's program has been of varied nature, each
class having had charge of one meeting. The opening meeting was a reception to
new girls. A unique feature was a mock athletic meet at one of these gatherings.

was nothing at all upon which to lay a foundation.
' Besides drawing up a constitution and preparing a tentative program for the

LTHOUGH no organization ever attains the precise ideals with which it
starts the season, the Classical Club has nearly done so during the past
year. The Classical Club intends to be an active club of varied interests, although
it tries to limit its programs mainly to things which pertain either directly or in-
directly to the Latin and Greek languages, history, customs, and literatures. But
to guard against the programs becoming too monotonous so that interest will never
be lacking on the part of the members, picnics, dances, parties, and other enter-
tainments are provided at suitable intervals. t
It is at this point appropriate that we should mention what the Classical Club
has accomplished in the way of programs during the fall of 1925 and the first
part of the second semester of 1926. Short and interesting talks and skits on
classical subjects were given by various members, while a greater part of the musi-
cal program was also furnished in this way. The committee engaged speakers from
the University who gave the club instructive lectures. Professor Winter gave a
talk on "Ancient and Modern Rome", which he illustrated with slides. Professor
Slosson's "The Life of the Romans Under the Empire" proved to be a topic of
much interest to the club. Professor Prayer on "The Value of the Classics to a
Traveller" gave the members important pointers on the life in modern Greece and
Italy. "Esperanto" was the subject on which Professor Onderdonk spoke. This
was considered of importance to the club since-this new international language is
to a great extent based on the Latin language, and knowledge of Latin facilitates
the learning of Esperanto. ,
The club voted at the close of the first semester to hold alternate meetings at
the homes of the members. This innovation proved a great success. The club was
entertained at the homes of Professor Sunderland, Professor XfVZlfC1'Hl211l, Profes-
sor Highbie, Professor Brumm, Professor Ruthven, and Mrs. Inskip.
Resolutions on the part of all the members to take some responsibility with
reference to the program of the clu'b promise a much bigger and better Classical
Club for next year.

careers. Because they were so few in number, -they made the trip
with a Highland Park NVashington Club. They returned 50 enthusiastic gbgut

organized in IQ24. the first Wfashington Club of the Ann Arbor High School. This
club was very successful, and the girls succeeded in establishing the tradition of a
Senior NVashington Club. Tn 1925 the Club had forty-five members, and soon
after they returned from XVashington, a still larger group of girls met to form
the Club of 1926. Fifty-five girls became members of this organization, under the
leadership of Hulda Schaffer, who was elected president, and the guidance of Miss
Cawley and Miss Paton, who acted as faculty advisers.
At this time a small group of boys banded themselves together in a similar
club. They earned the greater part of their money as individuals, rather than as
an organization, so this report consists principally of the activities of the girls' club.
The girls entered upon a selling campaign and canvassed the town, selling
everything from hair tonic to tooth picks. They sold soap, candy, jello, vanilla,
rummage, and sundry other articles. At the close of school in June they had raised
3500. Each girl was charged with earning ten dollars for the Club over the
In September the club, now composed of forty-eight girls, met and planned
an extensive campaign for wresting the dollars from the students and townspeople.
They immediately set out to accomplish this end, which they did by holding a
series of candy and bake sales, selling "hot dogsu at foot-'ball games, selling
"mums", more soap, more jello, and more vanilla. At Christmas time the girls
sold many holly wreaths and Christmas cards, clearing about S150 by this means.
On February 27 and February 28, the combined clubs staged a big carnival.
Much Work was expended on this enterprise, but the club members were well
repaid for their efforts, for they made around 3350. They sold tickets for various
plays and concerts, put on a "movie", ushered at the School-Masters, Convention,
distributed candy kisses on the streets, until at last they had the required amount
of money. The total sum earned by the girls was fIS3,4oo.
The long-looked-for journey began on April 1 1. The hrst leg of the trip was to
Toledo, where the clubs spent the afternoon in the Toledo Art Museum. Then
they boarded a special Baltimore and Ohio train, Where they experienced the
thrills and delights of a dining-car and Pullman. Sunday morning they spent a
few hours in 'Harper's Ferry, Virginia, and arrived in the Capitol at noon. The
next four days they spent seeing everything that could be seen, from the Declara-
tion of Independence to a lock of VVashington's hair. On Thursday a wearied
group of girls and 'boys entrained for home. Friday morning found the ex-
perienced travelers back in Ann Arbor.
After a year's Work, the result of which was six days' fun, every member was
willing to say, "It was Worth it

fl-IE Science Club has enjoyed another successful year. Because of the ad-
mission of the biology students, the Club decided to change its name from
the Physics-Chemistry Club to the Science Club. The constitution also was revised.
Bi-monthly meetings were held Thursday evenings in the high school, and
endeavored to carry out the purpose of the Club, namely, to give the members
greater interest in the science courses which they are taking. Programs for the
meetings have been very interesting and of a wide range. One of the most in-
teresting talks was given by Professor Koeltz of the University. Miss Bennett
spoke on plants and birds found in Florida, while Mr. Firestone gave an illustrated
lecture on sound. Mr. Shaefer gave a glass-blowing demonstration which was en-
tertaining and instructive. ,
The Club this year owes its success to Mr. Buell, who has acted as a most
efficient and helpful adviser.

, membership of forty-live Junior and Senior girls. The purpose of the club
is to radiate a spiritof friendliness and to serve the school and the community.
At the beginning of the year, old members of the club held an open meeting
to become acquainted with the new members of the school. At Christmas time,
gifts were presented to the hospital children and the club sponsored a play.
"Nevertheless", by Stuart Walke1', given by the Dramatics Class of the school for

The Sophomores presented a burlesque on light-house storiesg while the
juniors, who carried off the honors, presented a dancing and singing act of a

attractive prizes were awarded for the best costumes.

ITH a record of six games won and one tied out of nine, scoring a grand
total of 157 points against its opponents 13, having its goal line crossed
but twice during the entire season and holding the opposition scoreless in seven
of the nine encounters, the Purple and Wliite football team of the 1925 season is
one worthy to take its place among the great Ann Arbor teams of the past. The
record of the 1925 squad is doubly remarkable when one considers the prospects at
the beginning of the year. Coach Hollway was forced to start the season minus
the services of several stars of the IQ24 team, and the material with which the
holes were to be plugged was most inexperienced. But the coach and his squad
were not daunted by the darkness of the outlook. Both realized that if the 1925
season was to be a success all hands must get down to hard work. The team gained
its victories not through the efforts of any one man, but through the combined
exertions of the entire squad. Coach Hollway stressed team work to his boys,
and by the end of the season the team he put on the field was an automaton in
which every man was an important cog, capable of doing its part in a way nearing
In the Hrst game of the year Ann Arbor- encountered Birmingham, an outfit
composed wholly of veterans who had wrought havoc throughout the state during
the preceding year. Their veteran team met a Tartar in the green aggregation,
however, and was overwhelmingly defeated by a score of 41-o. The following
week-end the team journeyed to Ypsilanti, to meet the'Ypsilanti Central High
team. The Ypsilanti players made a great fight for the first three quarters, but i-n
the fmal stanza Ann Arbor opened up with a whirlwind passing attack that took
them completely off their feet. They were forced to accept the short end of a
3.4-O score. ' A 2
Coach Hollway drove his proteges long and hard in preparation for the
Adrian contest, knowing from past experience that Eddie Shadford always points
his teams for Ann Arbor. However, the final score, 7-o, is no indication of the
Purple and WVhite superiority. Hollway's green line held the heavy Adrian backs
to three first downs, and his backfield gained at will. But the team seemed to lose
its strength when in the shadow of the enemy goal postsg this accounts for the
small score. The next game was with Battle Creek, a team considered by critics
to be one of the strongest in the state. The battle was waged in mud, but Ann
Arbor, although forced to make several stands deep in her own territory, success-
fully warded off the attacks and gained a scoreless tie. 1 .
The following week the boys fought their annual feud with "Dunk" Lawler's
Jackson team. The game was playedvin a sea of slime, but Ann Arbor took ad-
vantage of every break and succeeded in pushing over two touchdowns in the first
half. XVhen the fmal gun ended hostilities, she was in the van of a I3-O score.
Undoubtedly over-confident after her splendid showing against jackson, the team
on the following Saturday took' a trip to Pontiac and was defeated by the power-
ful Grange and Black eleven. This was-H the first defeat of the season for Ann

Stinging under this unexpected beating, the team went out to make atonement.
On successive Saturdays the boys annexed the SCHIPS Of Hillsdale Hljd ,Saginaw
Eastern respectively. The Hillsdale game was a rout, Ann Arbor winning by a
score of 47-0. Saginaw, although offeringgreater opposition, accepted a I2-O
defeat. Both of these games were played under almost impossible Weather con-
In the hnal game, played on Thanksgiving day at Wfines Field and before the
larg.est crowd of the season, Ann Arbor suffered her second defeat. Flint offered
the opposition and succeeded hnally in gaining a 6-3 verdict, but only after her
championship hopes had been placed in jeopardy several times.
To the Purple and WVhite forward wall ,must go the greater share of the
praise for last yearls showing. Handicapped throughout the season in the matter
of substitute line-men. Hollway was forced to rely on the same group of men for
every game. In Bethke, VVrathell, and Kagay Ann Arbor had three ends who
successfully repelled flank attacks, while in Frey and McNally she had two giant
tackles, adept at smashing through and getting the ball-toter. At guard I-Tollway
had Bohn, Mummery, and Spencer. These men were all fine defensive players
and also able to open holes in the opposing forward wall. To fill the center
position the coach was forced to develop green material, but by the end of the
season he had in Lehman, Zebbs, and Anderson, a trio of pivot men who com-
pared favorably with any in the state.
The line that represented Ann Arbor last year was the best defensive line in
the state. But one touchdown was scored through it, and that in the hnal game of
the season. For the backheld jobs Hollway had a wealth of candidates and could
put two backhelds of equal ability on the field for every game. At quarter
'Weber and Hanna alternated and neither left much to be desired. At the
halves were found Taylor, Stoll, and Lichtenauer, men of nearly equal ability,
as all three could kick, pass, or run the ball. They were a constant threat to every
team Ann Arbor met. For the fullback position Hollway had Silverston and
Dunlap. Although Silverston saw more service, Dunlap filled the position ably
when called upon. Robbins and Rogers won their reserve letter, but did not get
into enough games to earn the major letter.

I-IE Reserves, under the excellent tutulage of Coach "Red" Davis, finished
the season Without a single defeat. The boys, however, played but three
games with other schools. The first game of the season was the annual clash with
the Ypsilanti Central Reserves. In this game the locals showed such a powerful
and dazzling aerial attack that Ypsilanti was easily trampled upon, I3-o. The
team next journeyed to Springvvells. I-Iere it was forced to accept a 6-6 tie. The
final game of the season was played on the local field, with Ypsilanti Central
Reserves again as opponents, Here the "Seconds" gave a most wonderful account
of themselves. I-Iaving possession of the ball in their opponents' territory nearly

The members of the Reserve Team can not be given enough credit for their
earliest work and sportsmanlike spirit at all times. These boys were forced to
take the hard knocks and jolts the entire season. But in so doing many of them
give promise of stepping into the vacant shoes left by graduation.

ITT LTC did the basketball fans of the Ann Arbor High School think, when
Coach Hollway issued the call for candidates soon after the football season,
that the team was destined to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, team that
the high school has ever produced. As usual a great number turned out, and from
these the squad was chosen. This year the team had no captain at the opening of
the season. After the first contest it elected Le Verne Taylor as its pilot, and he
proved himself an able leader at all times. '
Ann Arbor opened the season this year with Monroe, who fell before brilliant
playing and came out on the short end of a 34-16 score. The next victim was
Adrian, who scored II while the Ann Arbor quintet tallied 24. Then the big
Lansing team came down and was properly trimmed with a score of 25-15. U. of
D. High suffered almost a similar defeat with a score of 18-27. Pontiac was a
little more powerful, but the local 'boys came out on the long end of the 19-12 tally.
Mt. Clemens almost won, but the final score was 23-22, in favor of Ann Arbor.
Then came the bitterest enemy, Jackson, who followed the others with I5 to 18.
Battle Creek was easily conquered and the final score was 30-13. The Bay City
team took II to Ann Arbor's 13. The Flint team fell before the fast team-work
of the boys to a score of 25-17. Saginaw Eastern, the football jinx, came next
and to the Ann Arbor score of 27 took home one of 17. The last scheduled game
was with the famous Alumni, but they too were forced out by a tally of 26-23.
VVith twelve victories to their credit the boys went into the regional tournament,
and there Port Huron fell to a score of 26-19. Lansing next took I3 to Ann
Arbor's 16. That meant that Ann Arbor had won her way to the state tourna-
ment. Here she drew Detroit Northwestern, and though leading until the last few
minutes of play was nosed out to a score of I8-21.

HE Reserve Basketball Team had a successful season also, playing the Pontiac
Reserves, Ypsilanti Normal High, jackson Reserves, Chelsea St. MNary's,
and the Chelsea High School team. The sum total of its scores was I24, as
compared to that of their opponents. Most of the games were played preliminary
to the hrst team's games.
Franklin Forsythe captained the team at first but late in the season he was
placed on the hrst team list. Other members of the team were Harold Hoffmeyer,
Robert Bock, john Robertson, Chandler Bush, Irwin Bannasch, Dick Gustine, and

that the Leaders have been given the proper opportunity to demonstrate their

TARTING the season with two members of last year's championship gymnas
tic team, Coach E. P. Freeman again developed a squad worthy of note.
These boys placed second in the Interscholastic Gymnastic Tournament, at Ypsi-
lanti. Besides bearing away the laurels of second place, emblematic of team work,
Captain james Burleson took hrst place in individual scoring. This gave to him a
bronze medal. Other members of the team were Chandler Bush, Leslie Doty, and
The success of the team was due both to the abounding enervy and vitality of
the members themselves, and the excellent coaching of Mr. Freeman.
HEN Coach Meakin frred the first gun announcing the opening of the cross
country season, a number of veterans returned. These men included
Lloyd Cody, Nelson Cody, and Carl Donner. I
On October 17, the Purple and VVhite harriers were the guests of Battle
Creek. Here the course proved very difficult, hampering the team to a great
extent. Nevertheless, it resulted in a victory, Lloyd Cody, Ferdinand Otto, Carl
Donner, Nelson Cody, and Martin Etzel placing in respective order, led only by
Golehouse of Battle Creek.
Two weeks later, on October 31, Ann Arbor met the strong Kalamazoo
runners. This resulted in the first defeat of the season for Meakin's sprinters.
It was an exciting meet, Ann Arbor losing by the close score of 27-29.
The final run of the season was the State Cross Country Meet held under
the auspices of the Michigan State College at Y psilanti. Here Ann Arbor placed
second amongst a group of thirteen schools. Lloyd Cody proved to 'be the shining
light of the meet, placing first in the remarkable time of II 252.5 over a tWo-and-
one-half mile course.
Both the members of the team and Coach Meakin deserve hearty congratula-
tions for their Work.
HEN the call was made for tracksters this season, a goodly number of
fleet-footers responded, and were soon rounded into a competent team bv
the combined efforts of Coaches Vernier and Sanford. The squad was composed of
the following: Martin Etzel,'Davis Robbins, led Maebius, Marvin Highley, Claude
Stoll, Raymond Campbell, Emil Bethke, Paul Bross, Iohn Sinelli, Neal Gates.
Bernie Price, Theodore Dillman, Donald Kennedy, Lloyd Cody, Lawrence Wfinters,
Takio Ito, Frederick Etzel, and Carlysle Rogers.
'Hampered by ineligibility and illness, Ann Arbor got away to a bad start,
losing the opening meet by a wide margin to Detroit Eastern. The next dual
meet was lost to Flint, 51-35. However, the team had fully recuperated by March
6, and staged a come-back against Ypsilanti Normal's freshmen aggregation,

show themselves especially proficient in gymnastic work and who prove reliable and
trustworthy are selected for this group by Miss WVeniger, the physical director.
They may be called upon at any time to conduct classes for her.
