published by the students of Apollo
QW Q High School, we met two of the dim-
culties common to such publicationsg
first the preparation of suitable
material for the book, and lastly, the question of
finance. We Wish to thank the members of the
Faculty and of the Student Body for their willing
aid and co-operation in overcoming the first of
these difficulties. We feel that too much cannot
be said of the generous support given us by the
merchants and business men of Apollo, who, by
their financial aid made this book possible.

Assistant Editor Kiskitas
Here s to our president :-
A hearty friend, a comrade true'
If he has faults they re very few.
He always was and always will be en-
thusiastic over Athletics, but especially does
he delight in Foot Ball, having played the
part of half-back faithfully for two years,-
not Saiing anything about his good work
in Bas et Ball and Base Ball. Although
with his Athletics he has found time to keep
up With his studies. The remainder of his
time is divided between The Wyble Drug
Co. and Fourth St. This ends his "strange
and eventful history."

Business Manager of Kiskitas
Foot Ball Basket Ball
Here's to "Army" the Business Manager
of the Kiskitas, whom we may consider and
truthfully call, "The Best Business
Manager that Apollo High School has ever
produced." In his Athletics as well as his
business affairs he has displayed the inex-
haustible qualities of a real workerg as
demonstrated in foot-ball, where he dis-
tinguished himself as a "center" among
centers, both on the offense and on the de-
fense. But laying aside all jokes, we know
'M 1 .
him as a sport, and,
We consider it very funny,
When we think of him getting "Rummy
Capable and concientious. This is the
only way to describe Marguerite. We
wonder why she is studying so hard this
year? Along with her other stud'es she has
found time for early morning hikes and
occasionally Cnow you are supposed to know
that's once a weekj she inclulges in square
dancing. "Fords" do not seem to have lost
their Dopularlty with Marguerite. Just ask
her lin case you would like to knowy if a
Ford can make 'iPaul,'-ton hill on high
"every time." '
Vera is another of those good-all-around
girls. It's not so much what she does, or
how she does it 3 it's her pleasant personality
that makes people like her. Friday usually
finds her packing her grip-and she is off
once again for Parks Township. We wonder
who the lucky man could be? Vera is one
of our best French students. But that is
not all. The rest of her school work is
done equally well. No fear is felt for
Vera's future-for "Still waters run deep."
Lucille is the "Pollyanna" of our class, and
particularly of the Virgil class. No one
appreciates it more than Lucille, when Miss
Steele gives her a short passage to translate.
As a speaker-well Edmond Burke has
nothing on her. If you could have heard her
oration, "A Modern High School Building,"
I am sure that you would agree with us!
By the way, have you ever heard of
"Indiana?"-it seems to be Lucille's favorite

Who is this little black haired girl who's
one ambition is to have a Hdwight-ful"
time? "Betty" Fiscus-the smallest girl
the Senior Class can boast of-but don't
worry "Betty" Because you are small
means nothing. Aside from studying hard
all winter, she has spent many of her
t'precious" evenings selling tickets for the
Basket Ball games. "Who" could refuse to
buy a ticket from our little "Betty Jane?"
And isn't it strange, too, that she should
have black hair when she seems to be
particularly fond of "light hair"'I But then
she-'s not the only one, for what about
Every one knows Rachel, and, what's more
important, every one likes her. As for her
lessons, she generally comes thru with Hy-
ing colors, and as for having a large
vocabulary, well, we are under the im-
pression that she must have swallowed a
dictionary. Even Miss Stevenson has not
been able to find a word that she doesn't
know. Lately she has spent many precious
moments arranging her hair-why? No one
knows. Rachel seems a little absent mind-
ed sometimes-this may be due to her being
deeply in love Q71 or perhaps her advanced
age Q75 However "With all her faults we
love her still." So "Trudge-on" Rachel, we
are all for you.
Art Editor of Kiskitas Basket Ball
An artist within our midst! She is often
caught letting her vivid imagination take
fanciful iiights, which are shown to great
advantage on her numerous drawing tablets.
However, her abilities are not confined to
art alone, for
She can dance, she can sing,
She can do most any little thing.
By the way, you all remember the little
song that goes:-"Ruben, Ruben, I've been
thinking?"-well so does Velma. And yet,
her plans for the future are not definite.
However, we shall hear from our little artist
some day, then we'll all be saying: "Why,
I went to school with her!"
Asst. Art Editor of the K1Sk1t3S
Here's to the heart-srnasher of the Senior
Class. Not one girl in the High School can
compare to "Donney," when it comes to
wavy hair, big brown eyes, and rosy cheeks
He has the most brilliant ideas of anyone
in the Senior Class-and especially does he
show his brilliancy in Physics Class when
he starts experimenting. Nothing IS too
deep for him. He is a great lover of
Geometry or anything at which he can show
his ability as an artist. "Don" was one of
the thirteen men who received a gold foot
ball" this year as a reward for his services
on the team-but unlike the rest, he succeed
ed in keeping it himself, so far,

Class Treasurer Cheer Leader
Alumni Editor of the Kiskitas
Who is "Jack?" Oh! she is the girl who
dances so well and is distinguished by her
attractive clothes. You would not think to
look at her that she suH'ers from a "lee-
king" heart. But nevertheless it is true and
who knows but what it may prove fatal? As
a cheer leader, she is about the best the
Apollo High School ever had. The success
of the Basket Ball Team this year was large-
ly due to the "pep" and enthusiasm which
the cheer leaders aroused among the High
School students. And did you ever notice
when she is playing cards, that the "face
cards" just seem to "fall" into her hands-
as it were.
Assistant Editor of the Kiskitas
They call him "doubting Thomas," but
there is no reason for us to doubt his ability
as a student. We are expecting him to rank
first on "Judgment Day." Perhaps his
greatest characteristic is his devotion to his
duty. Whatever the task may be, he doesn t
slight it or leave it for someone else to do
Thomas is the youngest of the Class, but by
no means the smallest. He perhaps is not
the artist his brother is, but you should see
him draw Geometry figures. They look like
Chinese puzzles to the rest of us, although
it doesn't take him long to "dope them out
-perhaps this is because his father IS a
It was on a bright morning early in the
year of 1917 that Rebecca first came to us
from "Sunny Brook Farm." Perhaps that
accounts for her sunny nature and her
pleasant disposition. We have heard
"Becky" say how she hates to stay away
from home. What do you suppose keeps
her so interested there ?-not that it
matters. Among the girls of the Senior
Class, she will lead all when it comes to
averaging up marks. But she will well de-
serve the honor, for she has studied hard
during her four years in High School. Next
year we will find her as a teacher and along
this line we, as fellow students, wish her
every possible success.
A wonderful little pal so her fiiends have
found her, but how she has changed since
she has become a dignified Senior' Perhaps
it is because she recently discovered that the
world is no play house Hei one worry in
life consists in finding a new way to auange

Mgr. Boy's Basket Ball Team
He dreads no toil, for toil is a true
knight's pastime. And this alone dis-
tinguishes him as t'Editor of the Kiskitasf,
Step into 305 First St. most any night, and

"To know her is to love her." If you
doubt our assertion, just call 112-J, Vander-
grift, and find out for yourself. Ruth is one
of our best French students, but the poor
child, she doesn't have a loud enough voice
to make herself heard above some of the
lower classmen, who occupy the far corner
in "study." We have found her a very effi-
cient manager of the Girl's Basket Ball
Team and although she is not very large,
we feel sure that she will prove herself just
as efiicient a "manager of other things!"

Enninr Qllaaa Qiatnrg
the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and eighteen, on the
It third dav of September there entered into Apollo High School
5 H . y .
a troop of sixty-four Freshmen. Like all other Freshmen, we
were at first green. The Seniors claimed that they took us for
Q ,LP1'e'4-211935453 grass, but they were mistaken and changed their minds soon.
We sure showed them up. One by one our members dropped off,-some
thinking that they knew enough, their heads were quite empty. We
would like to put our Freshman picture in this magazine, but the photogra-
pher would not make us another one. He said it was too hard on cameras.
But, satisfy yourself to know that we were a healthy bunch, always kind
and thoughtful of our teachers, never bad, always willing to help a friend,
and so considerate of the Freshmen-to-be that we left all of our chewing
7" g gg, ,g Inu- i -
gum sticking to our desks. The next Freshmen were hard-up and surely
took advantage of this, thanking us for this small favor. We had a party
in our Freshman year which was not much of a success because the boys
were shy and kept away from the girls Qhaving been previously instructed
by their mothers.J When, on the second day of June, the last day of
School, we received our reports, we found that a few,-a very favored
few,-had passed. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Our
President for this year was Sidney Owens, Vice President, Stella Kelly,
Secretary, Elva Spahr: Treasure1', "Bob" Parsons.
The Second year of our stay in High School was begun with fewer
classmates. Some had failed and were again seated with the Freshmen,
others thought they needed cash more than brains, and a few,-all those
who had chances,-got married. This second year was a year in which we
were taught much, but few learned anything! We all remembered Mr.
Mathais as he tried to drill into our concrete domes the principles of
second year Algebra. He gave us much advice such as :-f'Attention is
the stuff memory is made of"-"Memory, thou art a jewel."-"Honesty is
the best policy." etc. We had a few parties, all of which were a success,
as our boys were not nearly so bashful as when they were Freshmen. We
were the cause of much trouble, and were great trials to the teachers.
They blessed us,-when the term was ended! We t1'eated the Freshmen
much as we had been treated, only worse. They were our inferiors, then.
This second year the High School gave a play called "Fi Fi," in which our
class was well represented. We had nothing to bequeath to the lower
class, but our empty seats and our well thumbed and marked Algebras.
fMr. Mathais believed in writing in text books.J This we gave them
with the greatest pleasure.
This third year our numbers have decreased until we have not
even twenty empty heads and no brainy ones. We have enjoyed ourselves
this year, but have learned practically nothing. We had our picture
taken this year, and it is somewhere in this book. We are not all there,
but it will give the unknowing an idea of what we are like. Our picture
would have been better had "Dot" not wrinkled her chin, Rena had not
looked so hard for the birdie, Estella had looked more pleasant, t'Sid" had
not swelled his chest, "Lee" had washed his face, "Eddie" had not blinked
her eyes, "Johnny" had not been so close to Margaret, "Fat" had not made
his eyes look like a Japs, and I hadn't bitten my lip. The remainder, Alice
"Fickey," "Snitz," Mary, and Margaret, took good pictures. Please pardon
those of us who spoiled the picture. We had a meeting and elected officers
in place of those who had stopped school. "Sid" was again elected Presi-
dentg "Stella," the Vice-President, Rena, the Secretaryg Johnny, the
Treasurer. We were well represented on the Football Team by Lee,
"Sid,', "Mary," and "Fat" In Basket Ball, Lee, John, Sid and Marland up-
held the honor of the class, while the girls were represented by "Stella,,'
Rena, and Edna. Dean is Manager in Base Ball, while all the Junior boys
play. We are glad that we will be Seniors next year, but we are sorry
that our stay as Juniors was so short. To the Sophs of this year, the
future Juniors, we leave the great privilege of sitting in the same room
with the Seniors. Good luck, Juniors, to be. Enjoy yourselves, you will
only be Juniors one year, if you are lucky. Our best wishes for success
and fame are with the Seniors. We will try to be as good Seniors as you
were. Three cheers for the Juniors. -JULIA YOUNG, '22

I was sitting before the Hre
Thinking of the days goneby
And I seemed to see some students
Entering the door to dear old Hi.
They were grave and serious looking
For on this September day
They were entering the High School
As Freshmen, until May.
They gradually fitted into place
And studied lessons four
English, Latin, Math., and Science
And looked around for more.
They studied and kept studying,
Obeyed their teachers and never
Until at last the finals came
And nearly all of them passed.
Next year they entered as Sopho-
With a brave and haughty air
Their ranks were a little smaller
But they had no other care
They passed the mid-terms safely
With exceptions one or two
But they lost their dear Mrs. Gartley
And received a teacher new.
Then things went on pretty smoothly
As things should always go
And there wasn't hardly anything
That the Sophomores didn't know.
The figures were slowly fading
The fire was dying down
But I caught a glimpse of the students
As Juniors of great renown.

THE FRESHMAN CLASS

'sqm'-fag September 5, 1920, the Freshman class took up their studies
'G i with a determination to out-rival the work of all previous
classes. It is true that all Freshmen are as green asgrass up-
hiln I 5.17 l, on entering high school, but it took this noble class only a
short time to show that they could do what was expected of
them, and could win greater and more numerous honors than any other
class yet seen in Apollo. Our class was so promising that many students
from the surrounding country came in to join our ranks, and they are
proving worthy of a place with us.
Soon after school started this year, the Freshman class congrega-
ted in room 13 to hold their first class meeting. The class chose for their
colors, crimson and slate.
The Foot Ball season opened with one of our fellows on the Varsity
team. Paul Wolfe held this honor. He did good work and helped the
team to win several games.
Basket Ball season soon followed and three of our members found
their way into the Varsity teamsg Paul Wolfe playing center, in the boy's
Marjorie Lawley and Anna Jane Fiscus in the girl's team. The rest
of the class gave a good example of our class spirit by the frequent and
hearty cheering we did at the games.
The Freshmen and Sophomores each organized a Basket Ball team,
which played a number of games. They lost and won by turns until the
end of the season.
A very delightful evening was spent at the Freshman and Sopho-
more masquerade party held in the High School gym. The Freshmen
were dressed in the "swellest', masquerade costumes, perhaps ever worn
at a party of this kind.
A class party was held at the home of Miss Elizabeth Wilson. We
were entertained with some fine music, then played games, and ended up
with a round of good eats which was enjoyed by all, especially the boys.
Miss Edith Steele organized a "Hiking Club." A large number of
Freshmen demonstrated their ability to get up early in the morning to en-
joy the beauties of nature. Ask some of the hikers the shortest way to
the Unfinished Millstone. Great ability as sprinters was demonstrated on
one or two mornigs when the over hanging clouds opened up and precipi-
tated their contents upon us.
The Freshman class has some very fine musicians. Elizabeth
Wilson and Richard Shockey excel at the violin, and we boast a large
number of singers and pianists. It is sad, but nevertheless true, that
some of the other classes have no members that can play even so much as
"Mary Had a Little Lamb"-at least judging from observation.
Another proof that this Freshman class has unusual ability is the
fact that we completed the Physical Geography in half a year, while
previous classes required a whole year.
Our class has every chance of winning the greatest record ever
made by a class by the time its members are Seniors. There is every
favorable sign that we shall graduate from our class, at least three or four
Presidents, some Governors, Mayors, Authors, Poets, Instructors and
Athletic Directors. We end our term as Freshmen with a deep feeling of
satisfaction, knowing that we have done exactly as we should have done
in everything, and have been the best and most noted class of Apollo and
of the State of Pennsylvania. -S. G. '24.

A SAFE AND SANE BASEBALL GAME
Oak Hill Cubs
On March 23, 1921 occurred one of the most interesting games of
base ball ever played on the Apollo School ground, since the ordinance
against precipitating tangible objects through the atmosphere has been
passed. A fast and furious game was played. The pitchers, Owens and
Cunningham, we1'e marvels. Owens' wind-up was a ten strike. Both
pitchers threw too swiftly for the human eye to follow the ball. No score
was recorded as the game was called on account of darkness. "Babe"
Cunningham was the star for the Oak Hill Cubs. His record is 1.000.
A slight interruption occurred when a spasmodic snow storm
severely dampened the ardour of several 'of the players.
Paul Bortz made a very eliicient umpire and only reversed his de-
cision once, when Cunningham ran the bases, beginning at third and
traveling to Hrst. The line-up was as follows 1-

HE winter sun Hooded the world with gold :is it slowly sank be-
l T lp hind the western horizon. Swiftly it changed to a pale yellow,
tw, fi' and finally disappeared. Then the purple shades of night
Q i crept slowlv cut from behind the towering mountains, and
spread their inky cloak over the snow covered barrens and the
pine woods beyond.
The moon, as if this were all a game, began its heavenward course
and tried to dispell the black shadows. Its bright rays cast a wierd glow
over the barrens, they revealed it, an endless waste of snow, stretching
away to the pine woods on one hand. and to the mountains on the other,
but north and south, the eye could not see its limits.
Winter had been heavy on the barrens that year, and the moon's
rays revealed no sign oi life. Yet there was life, farther away in the up-
land pastures where the moonls light had not yet penetrated, in a clear-
ing among some sumach and blueberry bushes, some snowshoe rabbits
were engaging in a strange kind of dance.
Running 'round and 'round, now leaping high in the air, now wind-
ing in and out among themselves as though there were certain Iigures, now
leaping more wildly, and all in silence, they resembled more dense shadows,
having taken life.
In the forest, too, there was life. Far back in a secluded pine tree
in the heart of the forest where neither the rays of the sun nor moon
ever penetrated 'tWahoo'l the great snow owl, the killer of the north sat
waiting the coming of night. Winter in the home of the great owl had
been severe,-so severe in fact, that Wahoo, had gone almost famished and
had subsisted for days on a single rabbit. Once he had killed a wolf pup
on which he had existed for a week. And then the storm came. For
days it raged, the temperature dropped to sixty below zero, and when, on
the sixth day it finally ceased, life had fled from the north. His mate
wounded severely by the she wolf in the Hght for the pup, had succumbed
to the storm and Wahoo was lonesome. Even the rabbits had perished,
and after two days of futile hunting Wahoo had flown swiftly southward
where he knew by instinct there would be an abundance of life. Arriving
at the barrens he had gone to the inmost recesses of the dark and for-
biding pine forest.
Wahoo was a killer by nature, a killer of flesh to sate his appetite,
and a killer for the pure love of killing. For many weeks there had been
little opportunity to kill for pleasure, but now that there was an abundant
supply of life, he had killed relentlessly in the forest, on the barrens, and
on the upland pasture, not for necessity, but for his joy in killing. He
loved to feel the death struggles of his victim beneath his strong claws
and talons. And now as he sat this night, all his senses were alert, ready
for the first sign of life. His fierce eyes shone yellow in the blackness of
Suddenly he turned his head, he had heard a sound, a sound in-
audible to ears less keen than his. It was the noise made by a grouse,
troubled by bad dreams, turning in her sleep, underneath the snow. He
fiew on noiseless wings to where he knew she was sleeping, he had not
been mistaken. It was a little clearing where the snow was several feet
deep, and in some places drifted by the wind. He flew noiselessly round
and round as he did not know just where she was hidden.
Whuh-whoo-oo-oo, the fierce hunger cry of the killer sounded once
over the quiet of the woods. It was so omnious, and filled with so terrible
menace, that it penetrated the dormant senses of the grouse, waking her
from her imaginary danger into real. She squawked in fear, this was
what the owl wanted, again came that fierce, long drawn, deep-toned cry
whu-whoo-oo-oo, whuh-whoo-it sounded twice across the dusk. The
taut nerves of the grouse gave way and with a wild squawk of fear she
sprang out of her sleeping place, sending the snow in all directions. Quick-
lv she sensed her danger, and with a thunder of wings started to rise but
the owl had already swooped and struck. .
With the chocking grip of his steel like talons he strangled her
squawking. As he was hungry, he fiew swiftly as the weight of his
burden permitted to the limb of a giant pine and there proceeded to bolt
down large chunks of the bird, feathers, bones, and all, beginning with
his tit bit the head.
Having quickly and voraciously satisfied his appetite, he wiped his
blood stained talons on the limb. and sitting up. stared into the deepen-
ing gloom. Although his hunger was satisfied, the killer's blood lust was
Mounting on soundless wings he flew with swift and erratic course
to the edge of the forest, and then in the open, he winnowed low over the
barrens to the upland pastures on the north side. Here the silence, to
ordinary ears, was absolute, but on his super-sensitive ones, all sounds
made a distinct impression. He soon detected the light foot falls of the
scurring. fun loving rabbits, and with his passion for killing mounting
Liiglaer and higher, he flew on wings of down, to the sumach and berry
' The moon, which had by this time climbed higher in the heavens,
cast a few straggling shafts of light among the leaping dancers. The
creat owl hovered above for the fraction of a second, and then shot down-
ward like a thunderbolt as he uttered his fierce challenging cry, whu-who-
oo-. It was harsh and terrible, filled this time. not with the hunger note,
but with an indescribable menace. The rabbits leaped frantically for the
bushes but they were too late. The killer seized the nearest fugitive in
knife-like talons, and strangling its squeal of pain and fear, almost as soon
as it was uttered, he bore his victim, kicking spasmodically, into the
gloom of the forest.
Night was fast waning, but the great owl's blood lust was not
satisfied. Launching himself once more, he set off in a swift soundless

Hight to the southern edge of the barrens. Here in the valley a farm
house nestled. There were no lights in the house, and everything seemed
deserted except for a thin column of smoke which wound upward from
the house chimney. A hundred and iifty feet from the house stood a
barn and from this stepped a cat with a large rat in its mouth. The cat
was halfway across the clearing when a dim shadow shot noislessly down
upon her. With a squall half of anger, half of fear, she dropped the rat
and was lightning-like in her efforts to reach safety, but quick as she was,
the owl was quicker, and one more victim that night felt the knife-edged
talons of Wahoo the killer.
The Hrst grey streaks of dawn were breaking over the treetops
when Wahoo, having devoured the head of the cat, set off for the deeper
gloom of the forest where he would be safe to sleep until the shades of
night again enshrouded the barrens.
Selecting an opening high up in the trunk of a mighty forest giant,
he smoothed out his beautiful white but blood stained feathers and settled
himself to dream of further killings and of his home in the far north.
Ili 21 Dk lk
At the same moment, twenty miles to the south west, fate was
turning the wheel of destiny against "Wahoo the killer." Fate had for
long been kind to Wahoo, and had made him the greatest of the killers of
the wild but now she had decided to pit against him a greater killer than
Pierre Le Mort, half-breed hunter and trapper was a killer-a
killer not to sate his hunger nor to afford him pleasure, but to satisfy a
desire for gold, that yellow magic for which men since the beginning of
time, have risked their lives and possessions. Pierre unlike Wahoo, had
a thin veneer of civilization, which changed his outward appearance. He
was not looked upon as a killer by men, but was no less savage at heart
than Wahoo, the killer for blood.
Le Mort had long trapped around the Hudson Boy Post and was
noted for his skill and cunning. His ter1'itory extended from the farther
edge of the pine forest beyond the barrens on one hand, to the town of
Pearson. five miles to the west on the other hand, and fifteen miles each
way north and south. Pierre had always traded for money and money
only, and it was said. known in fact. that Pierre had gold. hidden some-
where in the vicinity of his cabin. And now as Pierre talked to the factor
of the post, he employed all his cunning, for there was promise of much
"You will get the owl then Pierre." said the factor.
"It will be vair hard," replied Pierre, "does the m'sieur desire
vair much ?"
"Yes, he said he must have it for his new book, and collection."
"Why did ze m'sieur not come heemself if he wish so vair much ?"
"Mr. Hughes was unable to come himself, Pierre, and besides he
has never hunted nor trapped, but he said to spare no pains to get a snow
owl," replied the factor. If he must have it, Pierre thought he would be
willing to pay much gold, so he said, "Zay are scarce and vair wise and so
it weel be hard to get, ees ze m'sieur willing?" here he paused and looked
at the factor.
"Miz Hughes is wealthy and will pay any price, if of course it is
within the bounds of reason."
A bright light shone in Pierre's eyes as he departed with the
promise, "I will get eet."
"He's a cunnig rascal," muttered the factor as he closed the door
behind him," but if anyone can get the owl he is the one."
Everything so far had been in Wahoo's favor and seemed as if it
would continue so as a chinook set in, which in a day thawed the snow un-
til tiny rivulets were formed which ran westward over the barrens to
empty themselves into the river which fiowed swiftly and silently at the
base of the mountains. Wahoo prepared to return north as the warm
spell would revive the life there, but fate had planned otherwise. That
same night he had chosen for his departure a blizzard set in and the
temperature dropped steadily.
This was what Pierre had wished for as he knew the owls, if
there were any around, would find it difficult to procure food. After
leaving the post, he obtained a live rabbit and traveled steadily north-
ward, watching all the while for signs of the great snow owl. The first
night he was two miles south of the pine forest. At dusk he made his
plans. Selecting a spot where the moon's rays would later reflect on the
snow, he drove a stake to which he secured the rabbit with a short piece
of strong twine. Then taking his rifle, he stationed himself in a small
clump of bushes off to one side, where he could watch the rabbit with-
out being seen. Visions of a great snow owl, with a heap of yellow metal
beside it, filled his mind, but the first night passed without any sign of the
killer of the north.
The following morning he traveled farther north, and soon came
to the cabin in the valley where he had heard the story of the dead cat
and how the head only had been eaten, it was indeed mystrious. But to
f?ierre, who knew the ways of the wild folk, it gave hope, and made the
light in his eyes burn greedily and the visions of gold seem closer. The
second evening he made the same preparations on the north side of the
barrens, close both to the upland pastures and the forest, and settled him-
self to watch and to wait, in a clump of alders a few feet from the rabbit.
ilust is dusk was settling, he heard the cry of the great owl and his heart
Wahoo had indeed, as Pierre had surmised, been having a hard
time of it, the night before he had gone without making a single kill, and
he was nearly famished. This night he began to hunt earlier than usual.
As Wahoo, the savage killer, sailed out across the barrens he uttered his
savage cry, whu-who-oo, whu-who-oo, terrible and menacing by
reason of his great hunger. It was this that Pierre heard and it made
him take a firmer grip on his rifle. Wahoo hunted the southern barrens
without avail and that gnawing hunger was becoming greater every
minute. Turning, he sailed noiselessly toward the upland pastures, on the
alert for any sound.
Just as he was passing over the place where Pierre lay, the moon
came from behind a cloud and revealed to Wahoo the rabbit on the snow
With a sharp cry he swoopedg if he had been hunting for pleasure,
and if he had not had that gnawing hunger, he would have wondered at
the fact that the rabbit, when it sprang for safety fell back on the snow,
and he would not have thrown caution to the winds so quickly.
As it was, he struck and prepared to mount again with his dying
prey, but, when he had risen only two or three feet in the air, he was
jerked back. He now sensed danger, and with a cry, not of hunger but
of fear, he dropped the rabbit and started to rise. But Wahoo like many
people was a little too late. There was a sharp crack, and Wahoo the
savage killer of the north fell dead, man, the civilized killer, had proven
Pierre rushed out from where he had been waiting, and picked up
the fallen monarch of the night. He was a superb specimen of his kind,
his wings measured over five feet from tip to tip, his feathers were all of
a beautiful white, his long talons and fierce eyes gave him a very formid-
able appearance. Pierre noted all these fine points, appraising, not the
beauty, but the market value, yes he would bring much gold.
The trapper could not wait for morning but started immediately for
the post. As he trudged onward at a brisk pace, he planned what he
would do with all his gold, for Pierre had more, he had not trapped all
these years for nothing. He would leave this land that God had forsaken.
He arrived at the post the next day about noon and going straight
to the factor, he delivered the owl. "What," the factor exclaimed, "so
"Ah, Pierre, he is splendid! Is this enough money?"
Pierre's heart leaped, it was more than he had hoped for. With
many thanks, he left the factor and proceeded to the town of Pearson five
miles below. Yes, Pierre would go to his shack and then leave the
At Pearson, he thought he would go into the saloon and take a few
drinks on his good luck. The liquor loosened his tongue and he began to
speak boastingly of his plans. He had gold and he was leaving, going
south to a village of the Lenni Lenape. But again fate had planned
differently. Pierre was never going to leave the country God had for-
saken, the country that held forth the lure of the yellow magic to men
and laughed at their futile efforts, the land of the silent mirthless laugh-
ter, the land of death.
One who had paid particular attention to Pierre was Jean Renard,
a trapper whose domain adjoined Pierre's. He had had ill luck at cards,
and the word gold fell pleasantly on his ears. Jean had never forgotten
the time Pierre had taken a silver fox on his claim. To intrude on the
claim of another trapper means death in the north and Jean formed his

lost. The hand that held the revolver trembled, beads of cold sweat stood
on his forehead. There was a spurt of flame, and Pierre Le Mort who

This question should only be answered in one way and that is this,
that it should be made customary to publish a year book in the Apollo
High School every year. Such a paper furnishes valuable training for the
literary and journalistic talent of those students so inclined, and serves
as a memorial of the work of the athletic teams. It also preserves an
accurate record of the student activities for the year, the names of those
entered in the different classes, the class oflicers, not at all valuable in its-
self, but which in later years will furnish pleasant memories. Besides
this the book furnishes an easy means of tracing different members
through life. It will be nice in later life to be able to pick up a copy of
the "Kiskitas" and say:-"Why here's a picture of So-and-So who is a
judge, scientist or artist, and here is a picture of him when We were
going to High School together in Apollo.
And if we did not consider the value of the publication of a High
School annual from this point, possibly the fact that when we published a
High School annual, we placed our High School on the map, as it is said,
might prove a further incentive along this line.
Finally, a bigger and better "Kiskitas" for the year of 1922. A
Kiskitas that will put our High School on the map and one to which the
Alumni can refer with pride. And by all means make it customary to
publish a year book of the Apollo High School every year.-Q. M., '21,

ISKITASX' the name of this annual is -an. abridgment of the
name of the Kiskirninetas river. Klsklmlnetas IS an old
NW I KI Indian word, the original meaning of which IS shrouded ln
mystery. The first record of which we know, mentioning the
A' Kiskiminetas river is in the diary of Conrad Weiser in 1748
when this region was a wilderness, the home of wild animals and red men.
Now, in 1921, most of us are little impressed by the thought of the
value of the Kiskiminetas river and think of it as a useless, muddy
stream which flows by our town, but, if we pause and think we can find

many things for which we are indebted to the Kiskiminetas river. In the
first place, the site of this town was first selected on account of its loca-
tion on the riverg when the great Pennsylvania canal system was built
and this river incorpo1'ated in it, Apollo was then located on one of the
greatest water-ways of the United States at that timeg and when the
railroad replaced the canal, the valley of the Kiskiminetas river offered a
place where thc railroad could be built without much gradingg in fact the
river has been so interwoven with the progress of the town that it is
hardly possible to imagine the town without the river.
For these reasons we have thought it to use an abridgment of the
name of the Kiskiminetas river in preference to any other title.

A I8ng'a iliamrg nf at Cfnnh High Qrhnnl
.2 E have and have had for a number of years, a High School in
W 'Q our town. This High School when it was first started was ill
equipped and a little behind the times, in comparison with the
other High Schools of the valley. Gradually it grew, and at
if the same time, as it grew, some of the old ideas were changed.
Several years ago the three year course was replaced by a more complete
four year course. This change raised the High School standards con-
siderably, and one of the results of this change was that the High School
has been able to produce better educated boys and girls. Today the
Apollo High School is registered in the State Department of Education at
Harrisburg, as a First Class High School. The rapid progress made in the
High School in the last few years has enabled us to attain this honor.
But although Apollo High is a first class High School it is not an
A No. 1 First Class High School. To build and equip such a High School
is at present beyond the means of the citizens of Apollo. But we hope-
fully look forward to it in the near future.
The building to contain such a High School should be built of red
or white brick. It should be large, even extremely large, with the main
part of the building facing the street and at each end of this, a wing
should extend back from the street as far as is practical. This would
enable all the rooms to be well lighted and would not cause confusion in
the halls in changing classes.
As for the enterior of the building, one would of course outline it
by floors. First would come the basement floor which would be given over
entirely to athletics. It should contain a Basket Ball fioor, a swimming
pool, several dressing rooms, and at least one gymnasium.
The first floor or main floor should be occupied by lower grade
students if the High School is not large enough too ccupy all the rooms.
On this floor also would be several offices for the Athletic Director, the
Assistant Principal, Instructor in Music and others.
On the second floor one would find the study rooms for the entire
High School, and near the center of the building and facing the front, we
should find the Superintendent's office. Here would be the laboratories
for Chemistry and Physics, and the Commercial Department, which
should take a number of 1'ooms. This would complete the arrangement of
the High School.
But one would inquire the course of studies which would be taught.
There should be at least three different kinds of languages taught, among
which would be Latin, French and Spanish. There would necssarily have
to be four years of English taught. Chemistry and Physics should be
held in high esteem by the faculty, for they are the most important and
beneficial of all the subjects taught. Mechanical Drawing and General
Science should not be neglected. In the Commercial Department the work
should be carried on under the direction of good instructors, so that one
would not be discouraged before one began.
Also near the High School building and closely related to the
School,, should be an Athletic fiield. lt should be sufficiently large, so
that all athletic sports could be played there.
We earnestly hope that in the near future, when the growth of our
town warrants it that such a School will be built.-D. G., '21,

ff , gg ' POLLO is situated on the Kiskiminetas river, which in the
winter affords skating and in the summer, bathing and boat-
-hkt ing. Apollo has provided a large playground for the children.
Here the children are able to spend the greater part of the day
and are out of danger of street cars and automobiles. There
is always a director at the playground to take care of the children.
Apollo is situated near the railroads, which can be reached by a
twenty or thirty minute walk from the farthest part of town. The
service from here to Pittsburgh and other junctions is very good.
The st1'eet car service could be improved, but as it is, any of the
nearby towns can be reached in a short time.
The water supply of the community is hrst rate, and the drinking
water is especially good and is purified by our own water company.
The only work in Apollo is the Steel Mill which employs a good
many men. As an addition has been built to the mill, it will employ
about six hundred more men.
The business is good, and the merchants of the different stores
are very courteous. The merchants solicit the trade of anyone coming
here to live.
There are two good banks in the town. The one is a National
Bank, and the other, The Apollo Trust Company.
Here we have a good elementary school which includes eight
grades, and they teach all the subjects needed to enter High School.
The High School of Apollo ranks as first class. The students are
required to carry subjects which are neded to enter college.
There are about seven different denominations which have
churches in Apollo. These include the Presbyterian, Methodist, Lutheran
and Baptist. The churches are all of good structure, and up-to-date.
These are all in convenient places and are easy to reach.
The people of Apollo are respectable, very kind and neighborly.
They are always willing to help any one who is in need.-R. G., '21.

HAT trip to the city? Why, the one we Seniors made to Pitts-
bwl W QQ' burgh on the 5th of February, of course. There were eight of
3,1 us, accompanied by three of the High School, teachers and
we were going to see the wonders of the "Iron City." On the
l"i""4f""t"W7 way down, we met our friend and former teacher, Mrs. Gart-
ley, who got on the train at Leechburg. We were glad to see her. We
arrived at Pittsburgh at 8:30 a. m. and soon afterwards started for the
Heinz plant. At the plant we were assigned a guide to take us through
the factory. While in the reception room, Duane became interested in the
gold fish in the fountain and would likely have played around until he
would have fallen in, if we had not taken him away in time. While Duane
was taking up our attention with the gold fish, Dwight was showing a
great interest in the pretty secretary in charge of the reception room. I
believe it was becaus she had encouraged him a little that he was trying
so hard to "vamp" her. Dwight does not often copy Wallace Reid's
The guide took us through every part of the factory and explained
everything as he went along. In the department where they made pea-
nut butter, we all helped ourselves to some peanuts from a large barrel.
Mr. Sawyers must have taken a bushel, for he was eating peanuts all the
rest of the morning. In the section where they make tin cans, we all tried
to steal a can to bring home for the Physics laboratory, but the guide saw
us in time. After being shown around the plant, the guide led us into a
large auditorium where we were entertained by music and moving pictures.
Next, we entered the dining room, and were served an elegant luncheon.
During the dinner, Dwight made the startling discovery that "Red Pepper
By this time it was afternoon, and we started for the Carnegie
Museum. On the way Miss Steele, being religiously inclined, took us to
the Catholic Cathedral. Later we went to Syria Mosque and Soldiers
Memorial Hall. Then we came to the Museum. We were introduced to
Miss Steele's old friend, the Statue of Pallas Athena, who is the Goddess
of Wisdom. In one room, Lucille and Rachael fell in love with a 16th
Century Knight in Armor,-rather it was only the armor of the Knight,
but it looked entirely alive and ready to step down from its pedestal.
Miss Stevenson was very much taken with the skeleton of the
Diplodocus, one of the largest animals in the Museum, and would not leave
until she knew the history of it. Alice, on seeing the "great aeroplane,"
put this question to us :-"Wouldn't it be interesting to spend your honey-
moon in an aeroplane ?" When we had made the rounds of all the depart-
ments, it was dinner time. After dinner we went to the William Penn
hotel where we met the boys who had been-fwe don't know where.J
Later we went to see the well know motion picture, "Way Down
East" at the Shubert Theatre. From the very first, Virginia and "Betty"
were out-spoken in their admiration of the hero of the play.
We surely had a big day. We felt that if anyone else were ever to
see more in one day than we had, he would need an extra pair of eyes and
would need to be able to be in two places at once. We believe that our trip
will never be surpassed by others. -M. B., '21

Our "prof" is a very good fellow,
We love him none the less
When he tries to make his weak voice bellow
It is necessary, we must confess.
The teachers also love him
For his learning, so astute
And the great and wonderful knowledge
Which he gained at institute.
The foot-ball team adores him,
He made the season a success
By giving his moral encouragement,
Without which it would have been a mess.
He composed a dandy little yell
Its beginning is Raz! Zip! Din!
And when this yell booms across the field
Our team is sure to win.
He stands on the Iield at recess,
His noble form erect,
Except when he stoops down to paddle
Some poor little guy he has "necked."
But here I must put up my pen,
For now it is growing late.
So no more of this great man's attractions,
Have I time to enumerate.

The culprit stands before his judge
Silent, awed, and meek,
He hears the awful sentence then pronounced
"Stay in at recess for a week."
Murderers have gone before the court,
As stoic as a Roman or a Greek,
But none are there who hear without a start
"Stay in at recess for a week."
One can die by torture with a smile,
And never one convicting word speak,
But the staunchest cannot help but quail at this
"Stay in at recess for a week."

FOOT BALL TEAM
row: Clyde Dentzel, L
Front row: Marland
'. uf -. ' Y .
Q Captain King reigns on the full-back
throne. Figuring from the number of feet he
has gained on the foot-ball field, King out-
classes the centipeds. We can always depend
on him to gain a necessary yard or so, and on
the kick-off the ball always goes back so far on
the opponents side that they never have much
chance to gain. With King back next year we
are sure of a successful season.
"Steve" is our star end, at catching
forward passes, for in this part of the game,
Jones has never been surpassed in Apollo High
School. The team expects "Steve" back next
year to help them make the season a success.
"Sque," the left-tackle, is the young-
est man on the first team, but his playing does
not show it. Wolfe is considered with the best
tacklers that Apollo High School ever had. He
still has three years of his High School course
to complete and at the end of this time he is ex-
CAPT. KING pected to be very good.
"Fat," the big man on the team, protected the left side of
"Armin" Cunningham at the start of the season had one fault and that
was to get his nose in front of sorneone's foot, but after getting it broke
once and cracked a couple of times, he kept it in a more substantial place.
"Army" is the center of the foot-ball team. Armstrong has played
this position for two years and is considered the best center A. H. S. 'ever
had. With but few exceptions his passing was 100 per cent.
f'Doggie" finished the season as right-guard. Dodson started the
season at right-half, but for a reason he could not remedy, he was shift-
ed to right-guard, where he played without any fault. "Doggie'l claims
that he can remedy his fault at his former position and we hope he does
because the team is in need of a half-back for next year.
"Moses" plays right-tackle. Shaeffer is rather small to be playing
tackle on a High School team, as he is only 6 ft. 3 in. tall and only weighs
170 lbs., but when "Moses" grows up, big things a1'e expected of him.
"Mary" the heart breaker, plays the other end. Knepshield play-
ed every position on the line except center, but was not satisfied until he
got playing end, where he could see his Ladies smile with ease.
"Sid" started the season at end but with the need of back-field
men, Owens was shifted to quarter-back, Where he plays like an old
timer. "Sid" did the passing for the team also, with great success.
"Dewitt," the hard working, hard hitting left-back is the only man
that will graduate this year. It is said by many a wise foot-ball player
that Guthrie was the best tackle on the team. The squad would like to
see "Dewitt" back, but wishes him success in college foot-ball.
Dentzel, the small right-half, is always ready to take as large a
bump as the larger players, and for this reason he makes the team. Dentzel
should grow this summer and by next season be one of the fastest half-
backs Apollo ever had.

You know our team beat Vandergrift
A month or so ago
On a field of stick, sloshy mud
Three feet deep, or so.
With clothes all wet, you fancy how
They felt, with mud in layers
In mouth and eyes, everywhere,
Our valiant foot-ball players.
You know the day was raw and cold
On that Thanksgiving Day
While dreams of turkey, tinged with
In the players minds did lay.
But these things did not stop their
They played with greater zest
We cannot blame Vandergrift,
They did their very best.
Then thru' the mud a runner flew
The greatest speed to boast,
Nor was he stopped by paltry mud
Till he reached the old goal posts.
Then there he lay in smiling joy
All covered up with mud
And tho his heart was warm with joy
The cold most froze his blood.
When Monday came we could not stand
To study any book,
And so we just decided
That we would all play "hook",
We gathered all the boxes
And made a great bon-fire
And the glory of that celebration
Was all we could desire.

T the first practice of the 1920 foot-ball team there were
' four letter men back and the team was minus a coach. For
X 7 two weeks the captain put the men through such drill as would
i 40 take the stiffness out of their limbs. At this time they learn-
' YAAJ ed that they would not have a coach for the season. Undaunt-
ed by the fact the team worked as best it could without a coach and made

a very successful record.
At the end of the season the Athletic Association presented the
letter men each with a small gold foot-ball. The team takes this oppor-
tunity to express their thanks to all those who helped to get them these
The Apollo High School opened their foot-ball season with a 6-0
victory over the Alumni team, which was composed of such men as,
Cunningham, Troup, Kepple and Shaw. The day of the game was very
hot and this handicapped both teams, as neither had had much practice.
Although the game was stubbornly contested, it was very slow and it was
only in the last two minutes of the play that the High School was able
to score when King made a touchdown.
On October 9, the team journeyed to Kittanning, where they were
defeated in a hard fought game by the score of 19-18. The Apollo team
led the scoring 18-O, until the last seven minutes, when Kittanning,
through two fumbles and a fluke, tied the score and kicked one goal
which gave them the victory. Although defeated by Kittanning, the
Apollo team was considered far superior to their rivals. The touch-
downs for Apollo were made by Jones, Owens and King.
The next game, with Leechburg High was played at Apollo on
October 16. This was also a close contest for it ended with the tie score
6-6. During the first down a fumble occurred and was recovered by a
Leechburg player, who made a touchdown. Apollo SCO1'6d their points in
the third period when King made a touchdown. Apollo had advanced
to their ten yard line when the whistle blew and kept them from winning
the game. Wolf and Cunningham were both injured in this game.
Guthrie's defense playing was best, while Owens and King carried the
ball most of the time.
The next game with Ford City was also played on the home field
on October 23. This was an easy victory for Apollo. They entered the
game without Cunningham, Wolf and Dodson, but yet under this handi-
cap they were still able to defeat Ford City to the tune of48-0. The game
was so easy that the entire second team was allowed to play. The largest
gain the Ford City team made was when the Apollo team was penalized
twenty-five yards for the appearance of George W. Craig on the field
without permission. One of the features of the game was a forward
pass of thirty yards, by Owens to Jones, who ran for a touchdown. The
touchdowns for Apollo were made as follows: Patterson one, Jones twog
Guthrie two, King two.
On November 8, the varsity team traveled to Kiski, where they
were defeated by the Kiski prep school second team with a score of 21-0.
The game was close and well played until the last quarter when the
Kiski's heavier and more experienced team scored two touchdowns. In
this game Armstrong, the Apollo center, recovered a fumble and started
for a touchdown with a clear field ahead, but one of the Apollo players
accidently tripped him. Mr. Craig, who journeyed with the team, said
this was alright, for someone had to stop him.
The next game was played at Leechburg on November 12. Victory
was not expected as there were five of the first team men absent from the
line-up. The game ended with a victory for Leechburg 24-6. Apollo
scored their touchdown when Jones received a forward pass from Owens.

f , " N their annual Thanksgiving foot-ball game, Apollo High de-
' feated Vandergrift by the score of 6-0. The game was large-
bwd I l
W 1 ly attended by rooters for both sides. Although the field was
muddy and rain was descending at intervals everybody was
" ff f"i"xVf loyal and remained to the last. The game was scheduled to
start at 2:30.
Apollo received. Cunningham received the ball and tore down the
line for about twenty yards before downed. After making three line
plunges Apollo lost the ball. Vandergrift then tried line plunges which
were fruitless. Next an end run and Apollo got the ball on downs. Then
by line plunges Apollo drove the ball to the ten yard line, when King by a
fake play tore through the line to within one foot of the goal.
Apollo's ball. Apollo lost the ball by downs. Vandergrift then
started a series of line plunges which looked as though they might end in
a goal. But when nearly there the Apollo boys rallied and recovered the
ball. A forward pass and an end run and the ball was back in the middle
of the field.
Apollo's ball. A line plunge, an end run and the ball was within
three feet of the goal. Apollo lost the ball and Vandergrift made a for-
ward pass. The ball bounced off one of Vandergrift's player's shoulder,
when Jones, Apollo's end, grabbed the ball in mid-air and eluding all
pursuers dropped it behind the goal post. This put determination into
the minds of all Apollo players and the game was never endangered after
that. Vandergrift made slight gains with end runs and line plunges and
the quarter ended with the ball in the middle of the field. Score 6-0 favor
Vandergrift's ball. By fierce struggling the ball was edged farther
and farther down the iield, but Apollo was not sleeping and recovering
the ball, it was started in the opposite direction. The ball, during the
most part of this quarter was kept moving, and there was not one idle
movement for a player on either side. In spite of the fierce struggling,
Vandergrift slowly but surely edged the ball towards their goal. Closer
and closer till at last the ball lay within a few feet of the goal posts. At
this junction, King was taken out and things certainly looked black for
Apollo. By line plunges Vandergrift tried to drive the ball over, but all
was in vain, Apollo's line held firm. The quarter-back was calling signals
and just ready to receive the ball when the whistle blew. The game was
over and Apollo had wong the score being 6-0.

'YN HFI F aie great piospects foi the 1921 season as theie will be
,ax ments ale being mide by the Athletic Associxtion to stait 1
training camp where twenty to twenty-tour men may have a
two weeks outing in which to get into shape for the season. This train-
ing will benefit the team in more than one way, it will not only harden
up the players, but will encourage more to come out. Another en-
couragement to come out will be the awarding of the small gold foot-ball
again next year to all those who make the team and did not receive one
this year. The 1920 team had to overcome certain difficulties which we
hope will not again have to be coped with. They lacked a coach, the
right kind of High School spirit and a good Held.
All these obstacles have been over-come but one, and that one is
the lack of a coach for next year, as our present coach does not expect to
return next year. We are without a coach for the coming season, unless
there is something done. We have good material in the Apollo High
School and the town is back of the team, so all the team asks is that the
School Board have a coach here at the proper time.

Jones, the captain and left forward led
the team through one of the most successful
seasons Apollo has ever had. "Chuck" is an all
around athlete, but seems to shine best in
basket ball. He plays the game with an
earnestness and zeal that is rarely equalledg
and in a couple of years will be a player that
any school should be proud to possess.
King, the right guard, is one of the best
basket ball and foot-ball players Apollo has ever
p1'oduced. He plays a fast and snappy game
and makes it interesting from start to finish.
King will be with the team next year and we
hope he doesn't lose any of his "pep" during
Dodson, the center, surprised many of
the basket ball teams by his fastness and ability
in handling the ball. In spite of the fact that
this is his first year on the varsity, he has won
praise and admiration from quite a number of
followers. We hope to see "Doggie" back on
the floor next year with none of his old style of
basket ball lost.
Dentzel plays right forward and is about as fast as they make
them. In almost all the games "Chook" had to play a man about twice
his size, but still came through with flying colors. This is "Chook's" first
year on the team, but we feel that in another year he is going to make 'em
all open their eyes.
Guthrie played the other guard and is the only man the team loses
by graduation. "Dite" plays the game with energy at any time and never
lets his man have a moments rest with the ball. He is also very good in
other athletics and we are sorry he is leaving, but we wish him success at
any other school he may attend.
Parsons, forward, plays the game something like his big brother,
"Bill," He is fast and snappy and a very good shot. We only hope that
"Bob,' brings as much credit to Apollo High as "Bill," and by the looks of
things we are not going to be mistaken.
Armstrong, guard. "Army" is one of the "Go-and-Get-it" kind.
He plays well at this position, has good floor work, and is a pretty good
basket-ball player all around. Although "Army" wasn't in it much this
year, we hope to hear more of him next year and wish him all the success
in the world.
the first basket-ball practice there were only two letter men
back. At this practice, Jones was chosen to lead the varsity.
There were four teams on the floor and every one was working
3fL.::lf:Y,l hard .to gain a position on the team. After several weeks of
ww.-"-?':'-?'f:H' practice, there were two teams chosen from the squad. When
the first team had been picked, they were whipped into shape for the
opening game which was to be played at Indiana.
The home season was opened with a victory over the 1918-19
Alumni team, which was composed of Houston, Troup, Clements, Patter-
son and Jackson. There was much discussion regarding the team that
was to represent the Alumni. Some of the old stars like Parsons and
Townsend thought it was their duty to represent the Alumni and accused
the High School players of being afraid to play them. But the High
School, having accepted the challenge of the younger Alumni, decided to
play the game as arranged. The High School lads did not shrink from the
challenge of the All-Star Alumni team and scheduled a game which was
played later in the season. This first game was close throughout, neither
team gaining a lead of more than four points. At the end of the first
quarter, the score was 3-2 in favor of the High School, at the end of the
first hall 13-13 and after the quarter, it was 14-15. It was only in the
last few minutes of the game that the High School was able to score
three points which kept them in the lead the remainder of the game, which
ended with the score in favor of the High School.
The game of the season was with Vandergrift on January 7, 1921.
The game was played on the home floor and the gym was filled with
rooters for both sides. Although the visitors were far the heavier and a
more experienced team, they received their first defeat of the season from
the hands of their rivals. The game was hard fought on both sides until
the end, but at only one time in the game was Vandergrift able to tie the
score. The first quarter was very slow on account of the calling of close
fouls. The second quarter was also slow and there were very few points
made, yet Apollo kept the lead by a few points. The third quarter was
somewhat faster than the other two, and it was at the end of this quarter
that Vandergrift tied the score. The last quarter was a real race, Apollo
trying to keep in the lead by two points, while Vandergrift was trying to
overcome it. In this quarter, more points were scored than in any other
pe1'iod g Apollo scoring three more points than Vandergrift. The game
ended with the score of 27-24. Vandregrift then packed up their defeat
and trotted back to their native town very sorrowful.

One of the most exciting games of the year occurred on January 28,
1921, when Kittanning played at Apollo. The game began with lots of
.. , 'A .
"pep" and it looked as if it would be an easy victory for Kittanning, for
they caged four field goals before the game had hardly begun, and the first
quarter ended before the Apollo lads had over-taken their opponents. In
the next quarter both teams played a good brand of basket-ball, which
made it impossible for either side to sco1'e very much. The local lads led
in scoring this quarter and tied the score. At the half, the score stood
18-18 and it looked like anybodyfs game, but when the third quarter start-
ed you could see determination written on the faces of the Apollo lads.
During this quarter, they carried out their resolution and played the best
basket-ball that has ever been played by a High School team here. In this
period, they completely out-classed Kittanning and were able to gain a
good lead. Wolf, the Apollo center, was forced to leave the floor because
of an injury to his leg. Dodson, who took his place, played a fine brand of
basket-ball. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Apollo lads were
still playing hard and were able to keep their opponents from scoring. In
the last quarter, King was taken out on account of a bad case of cramps.
In the last few minutes, with a couple of fresh men, Kittanning was able
to score a few points, but not enough to gain the lead. The game ended
with score of 38-34 in favor of Apollo.
On Saturday, February 12, 1921, the Apollo lads met their first de-
feat on the home fioor, when they were defeated by the fast Tarentum
team, by the score of 34-32. The locals started off in the lead, the score
being 11-5 at the end of the first quarter. The Tarentum lads braced up
in the second quarter and the half ended with the score 15-13, in their
favor. The Apollo team was unable to regain the lead, and Tarentum was
at the front the remainder of the game. Jones starred for Apollo, caging
six goals, while the floor work of Slaughter and the shooting of Kline won
the game for the rivals.

The Ford City lads, accompanied by two hundred rooters, traveled
to Apollo, February 25 and were victorious in a hard fought game.
The local tossers were almost sure of winning when the first quarter
ended with them in the lead to the tune of 9-5.
Ford City's team work and shooting was more accurate in the
second quarter and they were able to tie the score at the half, making it
11-11. The strain of the first half began to tell on the local lads, who were
much smaller than the "Tin" City crew. Although they kept their hard
work up until the end, Ford City scored more than Apollo.
The number of field goals made by each side were about equal, but
Roberts, Ford City's ace, in shooting fouls made fifteen out of eighteen,
While Jones only scored eleven out of twenty for the local team. King and
Guthrie played best for Apollo, While Roberts starred for "Tin" City.
The game ended with the score 37-32, in favor of Ford City.
The All-Star Alumni Defeated
At the opening of the season High School defeated the Alumni of
1918-1919. Wishing to reestablish their old reputation the All-Star
Alumni of 1915-1916 challenged our fast five to a game. They were so
certain of victory that everyone was cheering for the All-Stars. In this
team were such men as Parsons who plays professional basket-ball,
Snyder, Townsend, Cunningham and Troup.
In the first quarter, it looked very much as though the game was
going to be in favor of the Alumni as the score was 17-6.
During the next quarter, the High School began to show some "pep"
and scored fourteen points to the All-Stars six, making the score at the
half 24-20, still in favor of Alumni.
In the third quarter they began to play real basket-ball, for both
teams were guarding close and prevented many points from being scored.
When this quarter ended the Alumni were only two points in the lead.
The rooters for High School became more excited every minute,
hoping their team would win. The voices for the All-Stars grew weaker
and weaker, waiting to see what their fate would be.
At the beginning of the last quarter, both teams were tired and
the game seemed rather slow. When about half the quarter was over,
High School tied the score making it 30-30, and from there High School
out-played the Alumni in every way. At the last minute the score stood
33-33, but just before the whistle blew, one of the High School players
made a basket, breaking the tie and making the score 35-33. Thus the
game ended in the defeat of the All-Star Alumni.
Hrnaprrta fm' the 1921-22 Basket Ball Gram
POLLO High School, having failed to put out a winning team
Qj ly' for several years, were able in 1920 and '21 to put forth the
'HWL nj best Basket Ball team in the history of the High School. This
team finished fourth in the W. P. I. A. L. Sec. 6 and were de-
feated only twice on their own floor, and these games were
lost only by the small margin of 2 and 5 points respectively. This team de-
feated the strong Johnstown and Indiana teams and, being challenged,
they played and defeated the 1915 Alumni Team which were at one time
the champions of the Kiski Valley.
This team which finished the season in such a streak of luck, had
in it such men as Jones, Dentzel, Dodson, King and Guthrie. All will be
back next year but Guthrie. His loss is keenly felt, but others are coming
on and the gap will be filled. Next year the A. H. S. team should be one of
the best teams in the valley.
Among those who will hold positions on the team next year areg
Captain Jones, who is one of the fastest and hardest working players that
the Apollo High School has ever produced and his side mate Dentzel, who
is the smallest man on the team but who has a lot of old-time pep and
Next on the list is Dodson, who plays the position of center with
the ease of a Veteran. He will be back on the team next year and will be
one of the cogs of the great machine which, if properly trained, will tear
.down the defenses of the High Schools for miles around. -D. G., '21.

' Pitching for the High School is Dwight
Guthrie. the captain of the team. He needs
little introduction as he has been a participant
in all athletics. He played on the varsity foot-
ball and basket- ball teams, and is now playing
his second year of base ball. His captaincy
came to him through his good will among the
players, and previous experience in the game.
We are confident he will make an able leader
and we wish him success as the season pro-
On the first base we find King, the only
other letter man back from the 1919 High
School team. Two years ago King held the first
base position like a veteran, and nothing but
another successful season could await one who
has proven himself such an all-around athlete.
King is a good batter and we should hear much
X' of him in the games in which he will partici-
CAPT GUTHRIE patgl
Our star short-stop this year is Dodson, who established himself a
reputation as center in basket ball. Dodson is our "clean-up" man this
year, let him hit the ball and the bases will clean themselves. He has
several years yet of his High School career so you will hear of him again
Probably next should come our Heet-footed left fielder, Charles
Jones, who has, in three years of athletics won as many laurels as any-
one that ever went to Apollo High School. In foot ball he was the
champion forward-pass catcher of the team and in basket ball he was
captain. As a base ball player we can no more than say he plays his posi-
tion without fault.
The tallest man on the team is Doyle Shaeffer. He was a tackle
on the foot ball team and played some basket ball. He joins us now as a
pitcher and second base man, most likely to pitch when his turn comes as
second base men are not needed. Being only a Sophomore he has a couple
of years to work up to a first class player.
Now coming to the boy on the 'thot corner" we find him to be none
other than John Patterson. Johnny is small but if he can do the work we
have no complaint. So far he has been doing this, and as he has another
year we expect him to develop into a fast player. You know the saying:
"Good goods are always done up in small packages."
Knepshield, who stands behind the bat, has had little experience as
a catcher. Although a little weak at first, practice is making him good
ag his position. He is also a sure hitter and considered very valuable to
t e team.
In middle field we have our manager Dean Fiscus, who is ex-
ceptionally good when it comes to catching flies. This is his first year and
he is a trifle weak at batting, but we know he can remedy this and hold
his place with rest. Base ball is his favorite sport and this alone will
help him in his endeavor to hold a place on the team.
In our last of the nine positions we have a problem to explain.
Owens or Bortz will play the position of right field. The former is a
pitcher and before long will distinguish himself as such. Bortz as a third
base man or short stop. Either one plays the outfield position with ease
and throughout the season you will probably find one or both in the
For subs this year we have two of the best prospects ever obtain-
ed. These are Clyde Shaeffer and Dentzel. Both will get a chance to
show their ability during the season. Shaeffer is a pitcher but being
very young he is inexperienced. Dentzel, in practice shows up well on the
bases, being especially good at second and short stop. More experienced
players are in his way but Dentzel will have a couple of years yet to play.

5 HW ASE BALL has been renewed in the High School, after a lapse
..'. ,gl of one year, and now it holds full sway. Two years ago the
I KH Apollo High School produced a fast base ball team which had
'.', a successful season. Last year the base ball spirit was keen
" 'X 4' - but a team was not organized. This year a greater spirit than
ever before has grown up in the athletics of' the school, and for base ball
to be neglected was out of the question. Only two letter men were left of
the 1919 team and these two, with the aid of others, have been able to
develop what We believe to be a fast team. They have been doing good
work and we feel sure the results of their hard practice will be shown in
the coming contests.

- Miss McHenry, the left guard on the
team, played a hard, consistent game at this
position. She was a sub. on the team last year
and is expected back for the coming season.
She showed lots of "pep" and fighting spirit,
always playing a clean game and always work-
ing hard until the end.
Miss Kelley, the right guard, has played
on the team for three years. She plays a good
game at this position. as her opponents will tell
you. She is the foul shooter on the team, and
although she plays guard was able to make
some held goals.
Miss linepshield is our tall, lank center.
Without her we would have been greatly handi-
capped, ilu' the team all looked to "Izzy" for
i the tip-oti. and very few times she was out
l jumped. She had the habit of taking the ball
' down the floor and making some pretty baskets.
CAPT- MCHENRY She is expected back next year.
Miss Lawley, right forward, is a very level headed player and has
the knack oi' being' in the right place at the right time. This is her iirst
season on the iioor and the team expects her back to help them make the
coming season a success.
Miss Rena Young. the left forward, shows up well in team work,
and is a good shot. This is her first season on the varsity, and we all look
forward to her having another season, even more successful than this one
The subs and the number of quarters each one played are as
follows: Miss Sloan 163 Miss Fiscus 10g Miss Hankey 85 Miss Artman
75 and Miss Burkett 1. They were not given the chance to play often,
but they did good work when they did play. Now the subs must not get
discouraged but come out for the next season, for they might be one of
the five. "You can never tell."
Miss McGeary, the manager, did much for the good of the team.
We could always depend upon her, and never was a task too great for her.
She graduates this term and we are sorry to lose such a "pal,"
The following girls will receive a letter: Misses McHenry, Kelley,
Knepshield, Lawley, Young and McGeary.

HE Girl's Basket Ball team had a very successful season this
V01 T -f year considering that they had no coach at the beginning of
.yi Y, the season and that several times they did not have enough
if out to give them the right kind of practice. The team hopes
'f that next year the girls will come out and help them make the
'Ca mia! -'gi '
season a greater success.
The team will not lose any of its regular players by graduation,
but it will lose one of its subs.
The Athletic Association bought red middies for the team and for
the three subs, and the girls Wish to take this opportunity to express
their appreciation and to thank the Athletic Association.
Some of the teams which the girls played were really out of their
class, but they fought hard on every floor regardless of the odds which
were against them. The team was coached by Mr. Sawyer and was under
the leadership of Miss McHenry, captaing and Miss McGeary, manager.
On November 26, the Apollo High girls journeyed to Eldersridge
and met with defeat at the hands of the Eldersridge team. The Apollo
girls worked hard until the end, but were out-played by their opponents,
as Eldersridge had had more experience on the Hoor.
Two weeks later, the girls played their old rivals from Leechburg.
The score was a tie, which two extra periods failed to remove, so the
game was called and the Apollo girls promised to get them later. The
next game was played on the Apollo floor and resulted in a 15-7 victory
for the home team. Two other games have been played between these
teams and the Leechburg girls have come out victors in each. In the
third contest the team was badly crippled by the absence of Estella
Kelly, guard and Isabel Knepshield, center. The subs must be congratulat-
ed upon their excellent Work in this game.
On January 8, the team went up the "Kiski" to play the Blairs-
ville maids. The result was a victory for the Apollo girls, who certainly
did "hand Blairsville a surprise," for this was the first game that had
been won from them in three seasons. When the Blairsville maidens
came to Apollo, they went home "with the bacon" for the latter game
was featured by the hard luck shooting of the Apollo girls.
The Arnold team were the next opponents and they were victorious
in both encounters. The first game was close, the score being 8-6, which
shows that both teams were determined to win. When the Apollo girls
journeyed down the river, they came home with sad hearts. Although
they worked hard, and the guards made themselves prominent by their
good Work, they were not quite fast enough to prevent the Arnold girls
from making a few pretty baskets, which kept them in the lead and finally
made them victorious with a score of 20-7.
The Parnassus girls were to be the girls next victims, but owing
to a misunderstanding, they failed to appear on the Hoor, so at the last
minute the second team was persuaded to play. The result you know
without asking, but for some who may be misinformed, I will say that the
first team Won from the second by only nine points, the score being 22-13.
Next comes the two big games of the season. These were played
with the Etna High girls, coached by Mr. Mathais, who was the coach in
our High School during the term 1919-20. The Apollo girls were defeat-
ed at Etna by only one point, but When the Etna team played the return
game, the locals certainly did give them a fast game. The result was a
victory for Apollog the score being 11-7. The next day Mr. Mathais put
his pride in his pocket, took his girls and journeyed down the river home.
The girls thought when they played the Etna team, that this was
their last game for the season, but a few weeks later they again went to
Leechburg to play their old rivals. This was another victory for Leech-
burgg the score being 11-6.

S N which are ,as custom calls it, members of the Alumni, al-
Q , though it is true, there is no regular Alumni organization in
Apollo High School. From that date to the present time the
majority of those who have been graduated from Apollo High
School, are marked in the history of the Alumni, as having attained
positions worthy of note. Some have become professional men, others
have become teachers, a great majority have entered the bonds of matri-
mony, and all are doing some service for humanity.
It is, with satisfaction that we can mention a few of those graduates
who have reached their goal in life, USuccess," and had space been per-

We, the class of 1921, being of sound mind and body, realizing
that we are fast drawing near that day when we shall pass from the world
of "Math," and English "Lit." into the greater world of reality, do make
our last will and testament.
1. We direct that all our lawful debts, including those incident to
graduation, especially debts for sundries and such necessities as candy
and chewing gum, be left for the School Board to settle.
2. We give and bequeath to the following:-
11.1 Ruth McGeary's box of rouge to our beloved teacher,
Miss Stevenson, who is the author of the lecture "Cosmetics and
How to Use Themf' 1Note: If any member of the English class
has not heard this lecture in full, Miss Stevenson will doubtless
present him with a copy.1
12.1 To Mr. Mullin we bequeath sufficient round trip
tickets for him to make a trip home to Mt. Pleasant every week so
that the idol of his heart may not languish for attention.
13.1 To Mr. Sawyers, we bequeath Mary Jackson's bicycle,
for we believe that he is thoroughly accustomed to using it.
14.1 For Miss Steele, our most loved teacher, we find that
we have no material possessions fine enoughg so we bequeath to
her the good will and unbounded esteem of the Class of 1921.
15.1 To Professor Craig, we bequeath the task of raising
the standards of Apollo High School to a still higher level.
3. To the members of the High School we make the following
11.1 To Rena Young, we bequeath Virginia Johnston's
skill in using a powder puff, as we do not think Rachel Grimm
would be willing to surrender hers.
12.1 To V eryle Snyder we bequeath Dwight's athletic
13.1 Thomas Henry's nickname of "Tarzan," we bequeath
to any member of the Junior Class who does not already have a
nickname of his own.
14.1 Lucille Clark's "spit curl," we bequeath to any girl in
the incoming Freshman class who admires such an ornament. By
willing her this, we will save her the four year's of effort which it
has cost Lucille to perfect this curl.
15.1 Donald Henry's ability of 'fshimmying' we bequeath
to Edna McHenry.
16.1 We were going to bequeath Velma's ruby to someone
or other, but we doubt our legal right to separate two hearts that
beat as one.
17.1 To Alice Keibler we bequeath Vera Brown's ability
as a substitute teacher.
18.1 To Julia Young, we bequeath Rebecca's behavior in
19.1 Betty Fiscus' stick-to-it-iveness, we bequeath to
110.1 Quinton Martin's editorial ability which he has used
to such a good purpose in the "Kiskitas," we bequeath to M. Dean

4. To the Junior Class, we bequeath the responsibility of uphold-
ing the traditions and dignity of the school. Theirs is the task of stepping
into the place of leadership which we are leaving to them. Their new
standing will carry with it the honor which inevitably clings to the name,
Seniors, but it will also carry with it responsibilities. Senior classes, yet
to be, which have not now even completed Grammar School, will form
their ideals from studying you. This is the honor and responsibility that
we bequeath to you, who follow in our path.
For the carrying out of the provision of this will, we do hereby
appoint Professor Craig as executor of this, our last will and testament.
In witness whereof, I have here unto set my hand, this 32nd day of Feb.
1921, acting in behalf of the Senior Class of 1921.

,AJS 4 their throats with song. As I strolled along enjoying the fresh-
-..-5---'fifff-" ness of the morning, I entered a strange wood. Beautiful
flowers of unknown species, trees towering in quiet strength and under
my feet, grass as soft as velvet made me wish to loiter here as long as
possible. Strolling along I finally came to an opening in the wood and
saw before me a very wide and beautiful i'iver. I sat down on the bank
and looked out over this beautiful river-the years seemed to fall away
and I went back into the long ago, for yes, I had really found the river
of time. I began to think about my school days and those school friends,
who had dreamed dreams and had seen visions like I, myself had done,
and I wondei'ed if their lives were as beautiful and full of activity as each
one had hoped them to be. As I sat musing, a small canoe glided toward
me. In it was a small fairy very beautifully dressed in pure white. She
smiled and beckoned me to come with her. Very much surprised and
scarcely knowing why I did it I entered the barque and started down the
river of time. It was a beautiful voyage indeed. We saw beautiful cities,
fertile fields, shoals and rocks and all were passed quietly, without com-
ment or mishap. Soon I noticed that the river was becoming narrower
and not far away I could see a huge pile of rocks which towered menacingly
and which I felt su1'e would wreck our frail craft. Iturned to ask my com-
panion what we would do and found to my surprise that she had gone. Swift-
er and swifter went the canoe--nearer and nearer the rocks and just as I
was feeling certain doom coming upon me a little door in the midst of
these rocks came to view. The canoe seemed to be going a little more
slowly now and I noticed a Latin inscription carved on the door but I was
unable to read it. Wishing to investigate, I reached out and caught hold
E T i
of a jutting rock. The canoe stopped and I sprang out and drew the
canoe after me, placing it on top of a rock far enough away from the
water that no harm could come to it. A leaf kept rustling at my feet
and looking down, to my surprise, found that on it was written the name
of our class president, Dwight Guthrie. Picking it up and examining it
more closely. I found that there was more writing about Dwight. It
said that he would be a United States Senator. After many years of faith-
ful service he would be sent to England as an ambassador, where he would
uphold the rights of his nation. He would return, honored and respected
by all the people. Then remembering my Virgil days I knew that I was in
the cave of the Sibyl who records the fates of men on leaves.
I pushed open the door of the cave and entered. As I did so, the
winds blowing in, caused quite a confusion. Leaves were flying in every
direction and I could not see clearly. Soon I became accustomed to the
light and saw in one corner a horrid monster, frowning because of the in-
terruption. In one bony hand she held a long quill with which she mark-
ed the leaves. I was very glad that I had studied Latin for the prophecies
were all Written in Latin.
I picked up another leaf and found Ruth McGeary's name. She
was to be a member of the House of Representatives, representing her
own state. The next I found was lVIarguerite Bortz's. She was destined
to travel to India, where she would carry a message of love and cheer to
those poor people. She would take along with her, her dearest girl
friend's brother as a help and comfort in times of trouble.
Donald Henry I found after much studying was to win fame in the
world as a mechanic. I could just see him with his face black and his hair
which he always kept so nicely combed very much disheveled. Rebecca
King was to teach school a few years and then she would become the
President of a University in Virginia. Under her infiuence, it would be-
come one of the most noted institutes in the country. Lucille Clark was to
be an Algebra teacher, and as a side line would do some coaching in
Basket Ball. Velma Hankey was to travel to Europe where she would be-
come famous as an artist. Her paintings were to be used as models for
the coming generations. After returning to her own country she was to
be elected manager of the Art Institute at Washington. Virginia Johns-
ton would become famous as a Latin teacher. She would have her best
friend. a certain prominent Senator, to help her out of all Latin difficul-
ties. Mary Jackson would be the editor of New York's most successful
paper. She would be widely known and honored. The latter part of the
writing was erased, so I could not read it. The only word I could dis-
tinguish was "Paris," so I think she was to become a resident of that
In a dark corner I found a leaf which held Rachel Grimm's fate
clearly marked out. She would go to college, graduating with high honors.
Later on she would teach Civics but would give this up to become a pro-
fessional writer. Her works, of which the most important would be
"Kindness to Dumb Animals," would be read in all countries and her name
would go down in history, one for her decendents to be proud of. But
alas the poor abused school children would have another author about
whom to study.

Suddenly there was a loud noise. The rocks shook and the whole
mountain seemed to tremble. I stood gazing, horrified, expecting some-
thing to happen. I scarcely know how it happened but all at once I
noticed a door in the wall opposite me beginning to open slowly. I could
hardly see it move but as the rough rocks separated a long passage slop-
ing gently downward came to view. A light, coming from above shone
dimly on the rough walls and damp Hoor. Then far down the passage a
bright light appeared. It came nearer and nearer and became brighter.
As it entered the cave l shrank against the wall scarcely daring to
breathe. A strange looking dragon-like creature spoke to the Sibvl and she
began to write swiftly on fresh leaves. Then I realized this thing was a
spirit from the lower world, bringing messages concerning his brothers on
earth. I decided to see what the messages were so I advanced cautiously
until I was close enough to look over the Sibyl's shoulder while she wrote.
The iirst one was a name I did not know. I waited breathlessly for the
next and it was Quinton Martin's name. It seemed that he was to go
to college where he would be the leader of his class. Later he was to be-
come governor of his own state and a leader in politics. He was also to be
the founder of a college for the purpose of trying out a new system of
education which provided especially for all kinds of athletics. When this
system was perfected it would be used by every state in the union, also
by foreign nations.
Several other names unknown to me appeared next and nnally
Duane Armstrong's fate was written. He was destined to become a pro-
minent business man of New York.
Thomas Hen1'y I learned, would go to Columbia University from
which he would g1'aduate with first honors. Then he would take a medi-
cal course and become a famous doctor, well loved by all who knew him.
He would do his country a great service by discovering a compound for
removing freckles "quickly and easily."
Name after name appeared that I did not know and I could learn
nothing more of the fates of my friends. I did not know how I would ind
my way home but when I returned to the canoe there was a small, dark
sprite waiting for me. Our homeward voyage was pleasant but unevent-
ful and I soon found myself on a familiar shore, so I was soon home telling
of my adventure.-V ERA BROWN.

NE beautiful day in early September 1917 5 an ae1'oplane crowd-
i O ed with bright looking children, sixty in number, stopped be-
gl fore the High School Building, quite overcome by the grandeur
of the edifice, before which our pilot had stopped we curious-
ly entered the portals, and for a time aimlessly wandered
about the halls of learning. The peculiar taste of the decorators, which
caused the walls to reflect a startling vivid green made us more blind.
Possibly, we might still be vainly seeking the sign post, pointing the way
of knowledge had not some sympathetic and kind person directed us to
what then seemed to us a haven of refuge. Longer acquaintance has
given rise to frequent doubts, concerning our early judgment, for we are
now familiar with our haven as practically known as class room thirteen.
As the days wore on, we profited much by our many experiences.
Our chief aim was to have the honor of graduating, and also to gain
knowledge, and we immediately applied ourselves to our studies.
During our stay in the Freshman Class, we were very much
wrought up by the snubs and reproaches given us by the other classes. It
was the time when class colors were very prominent, and as we always
had a fighting spirit, hardly a day passed without a "scrap,"
One evening after school we had a class meeting and elected offi-
cers:President, Dwight Guthrie, and Secretary, Dorothy Bott. We also
chose our class colors, which were purple and gold. Besides, a class
party and sled load, nothing much of importance occurred in our Fresh-
Finally, the year wore on to a close, and we found ourselves face
to face with those horrible friends, examinations. Most of us got
through famously, although there were some disappointments.
One day when we were very much indisposed, our aeroplane re-
turned to us again with a perfectly new pilot, Mr. Vacation and took us
on a three month's pleasure trip which ended all too soon.
We entered upon our Sophomore year with more ambition, deter-
mined to "get through." Some of us found ourselves under many obliga-
tions especially those who had ilunked in their exams. About the same
time Miss Saltzer also made her appearance, to take upon herself the
great task of teaching us English.
With all our school activities we did not forget those in need. We
raised the amount of 336.00 to feed and clothe a French orphan for one
year. We felt glad to be able to aid these unfortunate people.
Our Sophomore year was saddened by the death of Dorothy Bott,
our Secretary. Up to the time of her death, the spokes of our wheel had
not been broken.
Towards the close of the term, a lawn party was held at the home
of Lucille Clark. A very pleasant evening was spent out-doors, until our
ardor was somewhat chilled Cnot because we weren't having a good time,
but because the early Spring weather was jealous of its favorsl and our
lawn party continued as an equally enjoyable f'house" party until we de-
parted for home in the wee small hours.
Our Junior year was very profitable, although many of our chums
dropped off. Some left to attend other schools, and others got married.
Mary Klingensmith, Esther Cunningham, Ruth Free , Wayne Shaw,
foolish ones, left school and drifted over the sea of matrimony.
One great event in our Junior year was the play "Fi Fi" given
under the auspices of the school. Many had the opportunity to show
their acting ability, which made the play a success.
On the day following the play, many of the High School girls wore
their hair in curls with large hairbows, and the boys wore short "jeans"
to school. The teachers "raised a row," and sent most of the followers of
"Fi Fi" home. This caused a great sensation.
Two class parties were held during the year. The first was at the
home of our President, Dwight Guthrie. All enjoyed themselves and re-
ported a good time. The second party was given at the home of Virginia
Johnston. This was a class party and business meeting combined. The
early part of the evening was spent in preparation for the Junior-Senior
. V , " . '
f , nys-
Banquet. The remainder of the evening was spent in conversation and
amusements. A dainty lunch was served, and all departed for their
homes unanimously in the opinion, that they had an exceedingly en-
One day Cupid shot an arrow and pierced the heart of Miss Rhodes,
our English teacher. He held complete control of her heart, and just two
months before the close of school, she left and later was united in the holy
bonds of wedlock.
The Junior-Senior Banquet, which was held in the Tamaqua Hall,
proved a decided success.
Our Junior year closed with the vain hopes of graduating the next
When our aeroplane returned to us, our pilot was surprised to see
only fourteen passengers ready for him to convey safely through the
Senior year. We are proud to say, despite many difficulties that our pilot
As Hallowe'en drew near we decided to havea party, to which
everyone looked foreward. Almost every evening after school we had a
class meeting, planning, to make this the great success of the season. One
evening we were holding a class meeting, and because our plans did not
correspond with those of a higher power, much to our dismay, we were
forced to leave the building and hold our meeting elsewhere. As the
Seniors are known for their "stick-to-it-iveness" we decided to go through
with our party. We rushed, laughingly out into the street and seated our-
selves on the curbstone directly opposite the schoolhouse. Our President
seated himself on his books, in the middle of the street, regardless of
traffic and having called us to order we, immediately finished our prepara-
tions for the coming event. We rented the Elk's Hall and secured a high
class orchestra for the evening. We invited twenty-five couples, besides
four own class so that We might have a larger crowd. Of course this was
a masked affair and everyone appeared, dressed, in the most magnificent
costumes. An elaborate lunch was served by a very prominent caterer
from the city and after having spent a "glorious" time we departed for
our homes at a late hour.
lNote: The class has spent four years in cultivating their imagination
and they surely would be able to appreciate this partyj
In February, the Senior Class and several Juniors with Miss Steele,
Mr. Sawyers, and Miss Stevenson for chaperones, took a sight-seeing trip
to Pittsburgh. We visited several places of interest and in the evening at-
tended the play "Way Down East." Although Pittsburgh is "dry" we had
a "wet" day of it.
On the first day of Spring, Miss Steel suggested a Hiking Party.
We went for hikes several mornings but owing to the bad Weather and
getting up so early hikes did not prove as much of a success as we had
With all our other activities, do not think that we forgot Athletics.
We held a Cafeteria and dance in the Tamaqua Hall, the proceeds of the
affair went to benefit the Athletic Association.
As a final greeting we wish to all the other classes especially to the
Junior Class, good luck and success which they will be sure to have if they
follow in the footsteps of their predecessors.-LUCILLE CLARK, '21.

A game of pool, nor smokes, nor chews, nor swears,
Who never gambles, never flirts,
And shuns all sinful snares,
There is a man who never does
A thing that is not right,
His wife can tell just where he is,
At morning, noon, or night,
Not come to T. F. TUCKER'S for
QUICK LUNCH, HOME BAKED PIES

0wn Your Own Home
If you are not a home-owner today you have a
choice of two courses of action. You can continue
to pay rent. The country is short thousands of
homes and until people like you build homes for
themselves rents will continue to advance. You can
pay the increases and suffer the inconveniences and
uneasiness of renting-on a gambling chance that
later on your home will cost a few dollars less than
You can build a home of your own. Building
costs have been reduced. A substantial part of every
payment-paid like rent goes to reduce your indebt-
edness. These amounts, which otherwise you would
be paying your landlord, will more than offset any
probable further reductions in building costs for
some time to come, and in a few years will make you
a home owner.
We believe there are many good citizens in this
community whose best interests demand that they
build a home for themselves. If you are one of them
we should like to talk it over with you personally.
Our friendly, unbiased counsel and assistance are at
your disposal, without obligation, of course.
