N 3' Uhr Gilman nf Ninviern Emvntg-Six 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 PORT . . JAMES PARKER CLASS' EssAv1sT . GNA Fizriciziz CLASS PROPHET jossrn ZWERDLING 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.

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: 6 LITERARY ' 7 'UTP TW Q!-3gf, eQp .- Jil 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?

Ellie Hllan mlm 1RHnulhn't Bin 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 2. LITERARY .JUDO 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 6 P LITERARY aa, mfbss G 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. Uhr Zlhnl 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- WJ 'JU09 6 . LITERARY Sig ? mgggr P '1 'Juv 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. 6 LITERARY my 3,2 G GBI1, rnfrimnr! BY IOSEPH ZWERDLING 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 properly. 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 eveningf' . 30 M 39' 2 M2533 LITERARY wi .sep Jil 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' 6 LITERARY M9855 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- ciously. "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 better. . C7- gg? MID mega? 6 LITERARY C7'E??p rs-ff Tb Uhr tbniimiat 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.

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. 6 i P PUBLIC SPEAKING C7'Q,p We, .-59 Brhating, 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.

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- formance, 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 Schoolmasters' Convention. 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. Simpson, who coached dramatics and supervised the make-up, and most of all to Miss Dorothy Paton, who developed the choruses and had general charge of the whole production.

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.

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.

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 Lansing. i 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.

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 future. 4? 09' Qc ' 2 MUSIC M5329 'rivi- DRA A ohm U H!

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. Ellie Glzmt Mee-Mee ..... ..,. B lossom Bacon josi Mosi .... .... I oseph Zwerdling . . . ......

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 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. igerznnnrl PRINCIPAL L. L. FORSYTHE LUc1LE FELDKAMP, Secretary Miss Dorzorny PATON Chairman MR.

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 .....................

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. e 2 .

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.

Uhr Gllazmml Glluh 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.

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 vacation. 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.

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.

A clever singing and dancing skit was given by the Seniors. The alumnae group gave a take-off on a dancing school. Through the kindness of some of the merchants of the city and a few mothers attractive prizes were awarded for the best costumes.

SOCIETY Uhr illnreign-Amrriran Qllnh HE Foreign American Club was organized in the spring of 1923 through the efforts of Donato Suyat, a Filipino, and Miss Edith Hoyle, the latter being the original faculty adviser. Its purpose is to provide common interests for all the foreign boys in the school, to strengthen their friendship, and to give them a better acquaintance with American life. Realizing that more could be accomplished if Americans were allowed to join the organization, the founders amended the constitution to allow the entrance of one American boy for every two foreigners. Meetings are held each month at the home of one of the members. In the spring these meetings take the form of picnics and hikes. Each year a banquet is held to celebrate the birthday of the club. The members are very much in- debted to Miss Anna Steele and Miss Lona Tinkham, the present faculty ad- visers, for the help and interest they have given the club.

Elfnhihall if 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 perfection. 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 Arbor, bythe lowscore of 7-o. 5 ' . . . 1 N Stinging under this unexpected beating, the team went out to make atonement. 6 mvgai? C' 75?

Saginaw, although offeringgreater opposition, accepted a I2-O defeat. Both of these games were played under almost impossible Weather con- ditions. 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.

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. ii! C .
