The Histor of the June Class of 1923 BY RICHARD FRAZEE, Historian ISTORY tells us of the evolution of man from primitive beginnings of the small family tribe to the vast united realms of the present time. Everything evolves from a be- ginning to an end. As historian of the June 1923 class, 1 give you, tonight, an authentic record of the evolution of this group of three hundred eighty students of Technical High School from its insignificant beginning to-not the end, but the threshold of the next stage of development. ln the fall of 1919. we entered the Freshman phase of evolution under most auspicious condi- tionsg even the mild and pleasant autumn weath- er seemed to be an omen promising good fortune to this very young but ambitious class. Like true knights of old. we took our oath of alle- giance, buckled on our armor, and went to work, hoping to accomplish a few heroic deeds and to be of some value to our already beloved Tech. On October 17, 1919 when Auditorium was held at Tomlinson Hall, we, for the first time, realized what a large and glorious school we had chosen for our Alma Mater. Kathleen Thrasher. a freshman. had a part on the pro- gram. Thus. we made our first small beginning. Very soon again, November tenth, our class received the opportunity of gathering en masse. The occasion this time was the splendid cele- bration of that great day which we shall never forget, Armistice Day. Long shall we remember that first basket-ball season of 1919-201 Such a collection of stars had never before worn the Green and White. The members of the squad which won Tech's first sectional championship have all graduated and most of them are stars on college teamsg but it is altogether fitting and proper that we enter them in this history for we all cherish the names of Nipper, Griggs, Slaughter, Hawkins, Drayer, Hay, VanArsdale, and Black. It does not take long for freshmen to imbibe the true Tech spirit of loyalty and co-operation. June, '23 was no exception to this ruleg and after a few months, the school began to recog- nize and appreciate certain members of our class. Geraldine Watt possesses the enviable re- cord of being the first of us to have literary efforts accepted. Two of her poems ap- peared in the December nineteenth issue of the CANNON. Running her a close second, however, came Earl Beyer with his story entitled 'GA Night in Arabia" which was pub- lished in the January, 1920 magazine issue. In the inter-class track meet held in May, Archie Lang- lais gained individual honors. This was Archie's debut in athletics where he has since won prom- inence. Soon after this. many members of our class took part in the beautiful and picturesque pageant which depicted the history of our school. This successful undertaking was most ably directed by Miss Shover who had spent many hours uncovering material from files at the Philadelphia Arsenaliwhere the Indianapolis Arsenal records had been removed. One of the most interesting things discovered by Miss Shov- er was a note written by the Arsenal Command- ant who had predicted that his work on those records would grow moldy and never be used. How glad we are that his prophecy was not fulfilled! The fall of 1920 marked the beginning of the second phase of our evolution. We were no longer freshmen but very proud and dignified sophomores thoroughly conversant with Tech customs and ideals. At this time there began a new era for Indianapolis high school athletics. For the first THE ARSENAL CANNON 21 time in thirteen years, the city high schools were allowed to organize football teams and to par- ticipate in contests with other schools in the favorite high school and college game. Through the combined efforts of the alumni of the three Indianapolis high schools we have been given another opportunity to overcome the handicap ofentering college with no knowledge of the game and to show what true sportsmanship is. So far Tech has been commended for her high standards in athletics. May it ever continue thus! Tech won her first football game from Kirklin by a decisive victory of 31 to 7. After a season of such victories came the parade led by Mr. Stuart and the band. At lVlonument Place Mr. Graff, superintendent of schools. presented us with the silver cup. bearing the Green and White streamers. This was the symbol of the city championship won by Tech. The winter of 1920 brought with it a great loss to the Technical R. O. T. C. Captain Perry left Techg he was assigned to the 40th U. S. Infantry at Camp Sherman, Ohio. Captain Perry had gained the respect and friendship of every boy in the R. 0. T. C. His word was law not only because he had they personality to make it such but also because each boy, through his administration. wanted it so. In May. l92I,. Adrian Pierce was the first of step up the military ladder to second lieutenant. During the winter and spring fortune attended us. The basket-ball sectional was won from Manual by a 19 to 114 score. Elated, we went to the regional, but came up against a real stone wall in the form of Vin- cennes, losing our hardest fought battle of the season by a score of 29 to 8. However, we did not suffer our spirits to waver, and so acted as hosts at the State Tournament. Our baseball team captured every game for this season and won the championship. The fall of 1921 found us midway in our high school career and beginning the third phase of our evolution. As happy juniors we centered our interests on the football team which again won the city championship. We were proud to have three members of our class on this team: Elmer Baldwin. our star full-back, Cleo Peter- son. and Chester Demmary. During this semester two important buildings were completed: the Administration building, the cornerstone of which had been laid with proper ceremonies in June, 192Og and the Shops. These are parts of a Greater Tech to which we shall always be glad to return. If you wish to know now what that Greater Tech will be like, go to our number to the position of of 1921 good the main oflice and study the water color sketch- es made by Mr. Polley. The spring semester of this year will be remembered for its many unusual successes. Our track team won sectional honors and carried away the state banner for the first time. Lang- lais again represented our class in track. 1922 marked the third successful year in baseball. Our boys won the city championship, suffering no defeat and bidding for state honors if such a championship were available. The R. O. T. C. unit was inspected by a committee from Wash- ington, and as a result Tech was made an honor school. The inspectors proclaimed us the best drilled school in the country. A drill team. se- lected by Captain lidwards. competed with Manual and Shortridge. Many of our boys took part in this. and the cup was won by Tech. On Supreme Day, May twenty-second, Tech celebrated her tenth anniversary. ln the after- noon we all gathered on the campus to hear our band in a very interesting program. This was followed by a cantata, "Spring Raptures," given by the advanced Girls' Glee Club. At dusk we went to the Athletic field where we saw the pageant, "The Spirit of Techf, Almost every Tech student had some part in the pageant and the class of June. 1923 was gloriously repre- sented. The pageant was made a complete suc- cess through the untiring efforts of Miss Shover. And now. in September. 1921 came our fourth, last, and most eventful phase of evolution. We found ourselves in June senior roll rooms, ready to organize, and eager to assume senior responsibilities. The oflice messenger service, an inheritance from a former June class, was put into operation early in the semester. Names of june. 19225 seniors appeared on the member- ship lists of most school organizations. The state football squad of the season included the following members of our class: Cleo Peterson, George Cottrell. Donald Gullion. Chester Dem- mary, Carl Bernhardt, Elmer Baldwin, Archie Langlais, and Lane Schultze. ln November we held our first senior meet- ing in the boys' gymnasium. The meeting was called to order by Walter Jolley, president of the January. 1923 class, and the constitution was read by John Fitzgerald. chairman of the con- stitutional committee. Cleo Peterson, our foot- ball hero, was overwhelmingly elected as presi- dent. Suzanne Kolhoff carried off the honors of vice-presidency. Louise Rice was elected secretary. John Fitzgerald, as treasurer. receiv- ed the responsibility of caring for our fiying eagles. while to Carl Bernhardt went the honor of preserving order as sergeant-at-arms. 22 THE ARSENAL CANNON Mr. Bretzman was chosen as the class photo- grapher. Immediately following, began the destruction of Mr. Bretzman's camera. but luck- ily. our magazine shows some fair results. The class play was "Quality Streetf, one of Sir James Barrieis famous plays. The cast in- cluded Adrian Pierce, Grace Elizabeth Lash- brook. Daisy Folkerth. Evelyn Thompson, Lu- cille O'Connor.

At the beginning of our last semester, we elected the remaining oflicelsz prophets, Vir- ginia Foxworthy and Lane Schultze, will- makers. Agnes Search and Frederick Shickg historian, Richard Frazee. The competition for song and poem was an unusually successful strife. After several conferences the judges pro- nounced Louise Spillman, song-writer. and Helen Ogden, poet. Chester Lafferty's poem received honorable mention. Our class colors are purple purple and silver: and the class flower is the sweet-pea. We have attempted to live up to our motto, "Find a Way or make one." gained A number of our literary celebrities positions on the CANNON Staff. On Staff l are Charlotte Gilman, editorg Ruth Dinwiddie, associate editor, Howard Caldwell, athletic edi- tor: Geraldine Wattg Helen Ogden and Williaiii Mc-Daniel, feature writers. On Staff II are Ruth Preston. editor: Gertrude Kaiser, associate editorg Vllilliam Westfall, athletic editor. Louise Bice is magazine editor, and Leland Morgan is associate editor of the magazine. Tech has a Rifle Team whose fame extends far beyond the campus boundaries. Again, our class is well represented by George Denny, Carl Bernhardt. Adrian Pierce, Orville Henderson, and Charles Albersmeier. As usual our baseball team opened its season by winning its first game. Mr. Mueller, our new coach who succeeds Mr. Kingsolver, knows how to pick a winning team. Members of the June, '23 class who helped defeat Southport by a score of 4 to 3 are George Cottrell, Cleo Peterson, Lane Schultze, Elmer Baldwin, and Gerald Purdy. Early in April the class presented Tech with a dozen ivy plants. On a bright Spring morning the seniors gathered together informally, gave a short but interesting program, and planted the ivy on the west side of the Artillery building. Later in April, the Girls' Glee Club showed us all what they could do in the way of dramatics. The senior girls who helped to make this oper- etta, "The Princess Chrysantliernumf, a great success are Vivian Stevenson, Dorothy Avels, Bertha Green, Charlotte Reissner, Lillian Virt, Ruth Smith, Cathryne and Charlotte Roberts, Hannah Noone, Anna Bosenzweig, Dorothy Saffell, Ruth Dinwiddie, Virginia Mann, Sarah McKinley, Virginia Meek, Carmen Morris, Har- riet Shoemaker, Alice Suess. May was selected as the proper time to give our farewell parties. On Thursday, May third, we gave our class party in the girls' gymnasium, and every member proclaimed it a wonderful success. Later in May we enjoyed the beauties of nature at the picnic held on the campus. lt is with reluctance that I mention this class night celebration, our final gathering at Tech. But. as the old quotation states, "Even the best of friends must part," and we who have arrived at the end of our high school phase of evolution must each choose his own path now. May our achievements in Gods great universe, reflect credit upon this. our school. so that those who come after us may say, "They found a way or made onef, Life's Pioneers Class Poem. as 1'7 Find a way or make one So cried a pilgrim band, And faced the terrors of the sea To reach our peaceful land.

The voices have been answered and preparations are under way for a long and hazardous journey. To settle any question that may arise among our successors, should we fail to return, we take this time to set forth our last will and testament. To the dear old school which has accepted and endured us for the last four years and from which we depart with tears, we leave the great- est respect and love. To our patient, worthy, and faithful sponsors, we bequeath the care and guidance of all future June senior classes. To the rest of our dear and most learned faculty we leave our good wishes that each and every one of them receives the reward which he so richly deserves.

HEN Leon Destautel's last crops failed, he scraped together what ucoppersw he had and sailed for France to visit rela- tives whom he had not seen since early child- hood. Fortune changed its course, and in 1935 Leon became the heir of the well known MCastle of Dreamsf, Five years ago, Miss Suzanne Kolhoff began her tour of the world. In Africa, she found the missionaries, Dorothy Avels, and Emily Dunbar, making a brave attempt to instill Tech principles into the minds of the natives. Miss Kolhoff's songs so enchanted the natives that they have given the missionaries no further trouble. According to the New York Times, Miss Kolhoff is not escaping the attractions of the French uCastle of Dreams" previously men- tioned. The most wonderful Paris gowns of today are designed by W. Earl Beyer. Miss Charlotte Gilman, one of his patient models, says that Mr. Beyer is so entertaining with his dramatic art that the girls of Paris go to see him instead of his display of gowns. Emily Brossman is the popular illustrator for Ed Ragland's latest novel, 'GA Story from the Victrola Needlef, Modeling for Miss Bross- man are Chester Demmary and Eloise Owings. The president of the I. W. W. is Walter Browning. His assistants are Don Gullion and Harriet Shoemaker. The Barnum-Bailey Circus has now come into the hands of John Loftus and Alan Majors. The personnel of the circus is to be noticed: Charlotte Reissner, the world's famous snake charmer, is assisted by Robert Webb who keeps Madame Reissner well supplied with snakes from the Tech campus. Iris Innis, the tight rope walker, has never fallen nor excited her spellbound audience by losing her equilibrium while in the air. When Margaret Troy found basket ball too strenuous for her, she took up the training of dogs. Having rounded up all the Tech 6'Fidos," she found it unnecessary to import dogs. c Vivian Stevenson is now the Boncilla girl in James Greshmanis beauty parlor. James guarantees that his assistant takes out wrinkles perfectly or money refunded. Regular customers are: George Bass, the fishermang John Bolte, the hardware man: Richard Bunch, the florist, Hazel Bell, the telephone girl. We are not surprised to hear that Ruth Trueblood is now a Latin professor at Wabash. Margaret Graham, the captain of the "Old Maid's Basket-Ball Team" which is made up of members who refused to do their daily dozen any other way, has now resigned since her oft-repeated prophecy that she would always remain an old maid was not fulfilled. Manual Leve and Mildred Murphy are de- lighting Fifth Avenue with their latest ball- room dances. Miss Murphy completed her course under Wilbur Keeler some two years ago. Mr. Leve received his training many years ago in Miss Phoebe's '4Blue Room." Bertha Green and Betty Lee, who were al- ways such quiet, demure little ladies, are spend- ing a peaceful life in a convent at Rome. Miss Green and Miss Lee, who never cared for the frivolity of youth, have been here since 1925 since they were unable to endure the strenuous American college life. Grace Elizabeth Lashbrook, a graduate of Wellesley, starred with Harold Elston Dukes in uPlays for Kiddiesw on Broadway for two years. Miss Lashbrook is now the head of the Latin department at Tech. H. E.

I was fully awake, however, during the acrobatic scene of the Misses Charlotte and Cathryne Roberts, especially when they hung from a trapeze by their teethfi Richard Frazee, who won a silver medal for a History of Tech, is now deeply absorbed in politics. At present he is national chairman of the Democratic Committee. John Fitzgerald, the ex-treasurer of the United States, is now posing for Arrow collar advertisements. Dr. Don Hill, the heart specialist, is the discoverer of a cure for a certain kind of heart trouble. He experimented with his own heart, consequently, he absolutely guarantees the cure. Leon Adler, amateur detective, spent so much time on his hobby that he was dropped from the honor roll and almost failed to graduate from Butler. When the headlines "Missing, Alma Lucas, the only woman president of the United Statesii appeared in the papers, Leon solved the mystery and became famous. He found Presi- dent Lucas hunting squirrels, with an overnight- tent strapped to her steed. During his early life. George Cottrell was a choir singer at the East Tenth M. E. Church. George was so stirred by Rev. Chester Lafferty's sermons that in 1929 he, too, became Rev. George Cottrell. Battling Jack Byer, undefeated Hy-weight champion of the world, has signed to meet Lloyd McCoy, the fighting Irishman, in a four- round exhibition bout at the Madison Square Gardens, July fourth. for the benefit of the Morgantown Athletic Club. Ralph Trent and Donovan McCaslin, publish- ers, have placed on sale Clarence Elbert's latest book, uFactory Conditions in Iceland." The book is dedicated to Ambassador Paul Emert who gave Mr. Elbert much valuable information. Josephine Kennedy, grown weary of life- saving, has adopted tennis for her hobby.

Rockefeller fortune in 1934. Mr. Pierce did not entirely retire as was expected. We are glad to see him in the business world at Christmas time impersonating Santa Claus in Woolworth's. Last week Monroe Turner. cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune. stopped for a few days in Indianapolis. Since the IIIITIIUIIIIIJOHSV Times has become so much greater than the Tribune, Monroe has made a live year contract with the former. When King Tut's tomb was closed. the never dying enthusiasmof Dorothy Brown. the founder of the Egyptian Museum, was a bit shaken when she saw Gordon Worley, minister to Luxor, preparing to seal the tomb. When informed that a party of Americans interested in Egyptology was coming, without any coaxing Mr. Worley stopped his work and left for a football game on the desert. In the party which arrived shortly were Eldena Meier searching for specimens to use in her kindergarteng Lucile Pell in search of Egyptian books to translate, and Margaret Dunlavy hunting for an Egyptian costume to wear at Gertrude Insley's novel Egyptian wedding. Lester Cooley, after years of hard work in his garage at Connersville, Indiana, at last perfected his invention of squeakless springs for Fords.

What shall it be? As children we were taught to write by using a copy-book with a headline which was beautifully written. The first line we wrote was usually well done for we were so close to tl1e copy, we tried to imitate it. But as we went farther down the page, the writing grew worse and worse, be- cause, instead of watching the copy carefully, we were copying our own poor writing. It is just the same in life. If we wish to suc- ceed, we must keep close to our modelg if we desire to make our future its best, we must keep close to our model. ' The future hlls us with serious thoughts. We know not what it holds for us of joy or sorrow, pain or pleasure, but how thankful we should be that it holds an opportunity, to know that we may enter the future with confidence, trusting that by living up to the models set by Tech, we may succeed. Keeping constantly before us the standards which she has created for us, we will think of Tech. No one has inspired us with higher ideals: no one has given us a better model which we might copy than have Techis faculty, ofhcials, and students. By keeping reflections of Tech ever before us. we can be sure that our achievements in life will be worth while. RUTH L. SMITH THE ARSENAL CANNON 355 . ,rl j V.. J I N j 1 FACULTY ADVISERS Wliat Others Think of Us Of course you know what every true Techite thinks of our school paper but it is a matter of some speculation as to what others think of us. When we receive a compliment from a strange school, whose pupils have different ideas and interests than we have. we are justly proud, so we hereby publish a list of them. The Techites of Technical High School, Prov- idence, Rhode Island, printed the following comment: THE ARSENAL CANNON: Your art work is certainly clever, and the school news well-collected and extensive. The original jokes are a relief after some we have read, but a few more long stories would give a more compact magazine. From the Walnut Chips, Zionsville High School, Zionsville, Indiana comes: ARSENAL CANNON, Technical High School, Indianapolis. An unusually live paper. The staff evidently knows their stuff. The Maroon and White, Chattanooga High School, Chattanooga, Tennessee says: We wish to compliment you on your excel- lent paper. One good point about your paper is its variety of material. From the Spotlight. Fort Wayne, Indiana. Your "Sectional Sidelightsi' were good. We enjoy your paper. The Tech Review, of Providence, Rhode Is- land, gives us this bit of praise: A school paper that lives up to its name: it is a cannon that fairly explodes with school news. Its section of jokes is very good. The Normal Advance, from Terre Haute, says this about us: Your paper is noted for its exceptionally good jokes. The headings for the various departments show much origin- ality. The Tree City Breeze, of Greensburg, Ind., comments on the CANNON thus: THE ARSENAL CANNON is a well edited paper and one that we are always glad to receive. The Comet, from Jasper, Ind., says: THE ARSENAL CANNON. Technical High School, Ind- ianapolis, Ind. Your paper is well arranged and we like your fine cover designs. Your joke department is also good. Sportsmanship During the winter months Tech students have faced many critical tests in regard to their loyalty and sportsmanship. Facing defeat time after time by narrow mar- gins has been enough to tax the spirit of every student. But contrary to expectations, and with but few exceptions, our student body has braved the storm, and, as a result. we now have a spirit that is as good as, if not better than, in past years. This has been a real test, and a hard one, but a valuable lesson, a lesson that we have learned, that will prove of invaluable service in facing the problems of life. Laughing in the face of defeat and victory is an asset that can well be acquired by us all. L. C. M. The members of the CANNON Staff acknowl- edge with grateful appreciation the assistance received throughout the year from the News English class and the Commercial Art class. The Staff also wishes to thank the teachers, the roll-room agents. and the entire student body for their co-operation in making this year a suc- cessful one for the CANNON. .iq-9.3.1 Student's Work is Exceptional On page 43 is a picture of Raymond Robert- son and his best vocational project. It is inter- esting to know that Raymond carved the pattern for this bronze head of Lincoln in the pattern- making shop before he cast it in the foundry. He also made the wooden plaque on which the head is mounted. It is an exceptional piece of work for a high school student to have done. Wiffiom Dul' Q!

The letters that Tech students have received are in- teresting to read while much pertaining to South American customs can be learned from them. One aim of the correspondents is that the pupils studying Spanish may write in Spanish, that the South American pupils can correct any IIIISl3li6SQ or that they may write in English in order to give the South Americans practice in understanding our language. Many new possibilities have been opened in this way. Imagine the thrill of receiving mail from South America! It is fun to exchange pictures and reading matter regarding each otherls schools. Persons have found it interest- ing to use the "get-acquainted-by-mail" system, tit has even been used in French classes.l The correspondence has proved helpful to the classes in many cases. Through the author- ities of various South American high schools, addresses of Spanish-speaking students may be obtained. MARY ALICE FRI-:E . is if I 1 "aft i z iff? " Q ,fx M . es, by , -,-, - px.

Young folks especially love to listen to stories of the adventures that happen to explorers in far-away and mysterious lands. Now I have just made a long trip through a ter- ritory inhabited by queer people. and I shall tell you what I saw. I had often heard of the land of "Just About." Concluding that the best way to get an idea of its inhabitants and their ways was to go to their country, I packed my grip, took some money, a stout stick, my watch. and a box of good-humor lozenges. These lozenges are an excellent thing to take when you are traveling, in case unpleas- ant circumstances should occur. If you leave them behind, you run the risk of having a dull time. Crossing the country where perpendicular lines stand erect on their horizontals. where noon is the middle of the day, where yes is yes, and no is no, I arrived finally at a frontier. To tell the truth. it was not' a really. truly frontier. Indeed. nobody has ever found it pos- sible to settle the boundary of the country of 6',Iust Aboutf, No one knows precisely where it begins nor where it ends. This. too, is unfor- tunate, for the citizens of the land of "Just Aboutf, not having very definite frontiers. are perpetually quarreling with their neighbors. They live with them on a footing which one cannot call a belligerent footing. because they rarely have real wars. and for a very good rea- son. Their army only just about exists. Their military chiefs are generals. if you insist. But, after all, they are only sorts of generals who know just about how to command, and to coun- terbalance. They are just about ignorant of strat- egy, geography, and everything that pertains to the art of war. They learned this art. after a fashion, in the schools. But everything in their schools being only half or three-quarters taught, the young oflicers who graduate from them are jokes. The soldiers they command are soldiers of the same type. Evidently they are what might be called soldiers, but they are just about drilled, their swords. just about cut: their rifles shoot quasi-straight: and their powder is neither quite dry nor quite wet. Accordingly, when they have pointed their cannon and taken aim, so so. it cannot be said that the weapon always goes off, or that it always misses. that it hits or that it does not hit. All that is approximate. The only thing that one can fairly and squarely declare is that every time this kind of an army has en- countered the enemy it has met defeat. Those instances I have in mind now were only semi- serious. In the land of Hlust Aboutw the children just about obey their parents. When they sit down at the table. they have clean hands,. by courtesy. They eat their soup but they never eat it all: there is always a residue. They go to school and get there on time, or somewhere near it. Their bags are half-open. half-shutg their written exer- cises are begun but not finished. When they write they mind only three-quarters of their P's and Q's. Most of their pages are clean, but not all of them. They know their lessons, but not entire- ly. Wihen the teacher talks, they open one eye and lend one ear. The other ear and the other eye are vaguely busy with various objects. When the inspector visits the school, he writes down the following comment: "Pupils almost good, or else they are almost bad. I could not very well pass on themf, Upon leaving, he gives the teacher compliments which are also criticisms, if you take them that way, but the person who would say so is very subtle. The joiners of the land of 'just Aboutn make parquetry, doors, and windows, like all joiners. Only, when you watch them work you notice that they saw and plane just about straight. At a 46 THE ARSENAL CANNON pinch you might say it was planing, but their edges are never true. The doors have slits in them, and the windows are neither open nor closed. The panes blink on account of their un- certain angles, the parquet floors wave up and down, and the tables dance. Their coopers make barrels, tubs, tuns, and troughs, but everything leaks. When you gaze into a looking-glass in the land of 6',Iust Aboutf, you are not absolutely sure whose face you see. Perhaps it is you, but it might also be your brother or your cousin. The portraits painted by the artists over there all have a vague resem- blance to the originals. The masons in the land of ujust About" have, like our masons, the plumb-line and the square, but no angle is a right angle, and no wall is per- pendicular. Are they oblique? It could not be claimed so without exaggeration. And so the houses, the churches, and the markets are rela- tively substantial. Yes, the roof of a theatre in the city of "Just About? did fall in lately. Still, it must be admitted that only a part of it fell, and that the victims were only half killed. The surgeons who answered the hurry call almost cured the patients and just about properly reset a certain number of fractured limbs. The merchants in this weird country use scales, weights, and measures that are passably accurate. However, if you weigh your purchases when you get home, you are always just a little short. If they make change, you are sure to find some good coins, but rarely are they all good. At the groceris the groceries are of medium quality. It would be doing these good people an injustice to say that they sell inferior products, but on the other hand, it would be wrong to call them high class. The shops have eggs that are nearly fresh. The meat, the fish, and the poultry are fresh, too, but of questionable freshness. And this little adjective which does not say enough and which says too much, is applicable to the honesty of these tradesmen as well as to the cleanliness of their shops. If something out of the ordinary happens, anything like an accident, a fight, or an assas- sination, the police arrive neither soon enough nor too late. They take the evidence and make their report. There is always something lacking about this report. It is very much like a horse when he is walking on three legs. At the court- house witnesses are called. They are not sure of what they have seen or heard, but they take good care not to say that they have not seen or heard anything. Do they tell the truth? They certainly do, but they keep back part of it. Once the speeches of counsel are finished, the judges pass a sentence in which they lump most things. Indeed, most of the time when there is a law- suit on hand, they never finish it. They do not succeed in proving the facts nor in declaring who is right and who is wrong. I made a point of noticing the women of the country. But if you were to ask me whether they are beautiful or ugly, I should be very much perplexed. If you said they were ugly, you would be slandering them, if you said they were beautiful, you would be flattering them shame- fully. If you want to find out from me whether these women are graceful, active, industrious, sensible, intelligent, and virtuous, I really should be at a loss to answer. They do everything the way they sweep and knit. How do they sweep and knit? This way, they sweep in the middle of the room, but not in the corners. When they knit, they drop the stitches. As a result the little out-of-the-way corners of their houses are dirty, and their stockings have holes. What kind of food did I find on my trip? Neither good nor bad. Did I have cool things to drink? I cannot truthfully say so. Were the drinks tepid then? No, I have no right to assert it positively, or to complain in consequence, for their water, their coffee, their tea are neither warm nor cold. And they thiemselves are neither warm nor cold. From the government and executive offi- cials down to the families and private individ- uals in the land of "Just Aboutf' nothing is frank, nor up and down, nor squarely asserted. What ought to be thought of such a country? Nothing bad, nothing good. But that in itself is not good. It is bad, very bad indeed. What is a half-knowledge, a half-skill, a half-truth, a half-honesty? It is sometimes worse than the absence of knowledge, skill, or honesty. Give me the out-and-out rascals, liars, who have the courage of their lies. These are preferable. At least one knows what to expect. Let us be wholly what we are. Let us do wholly what we have to do. Do not let us ever be satisfied with the Njust Aboutf' At any rate, nothing is so irritat- ing as the 'fjust aboutf, I learned something of it over there. I left just in time. So much inde- cision and fickleness and equivocation drove me beside myself, and you could fairly see my good humor lozenges melt. Teacher: And now can you tell me what an icicle is? Tommy fafter a profound silencej: Please, Maiam, it's a stiff piece of water. THE ARSENAL CANNON 47 Dot's 6'Cousin" The door bell! A telegram-and for her! Good news?-well, I should hope to tell-but read it for yourself. "Cousin will arrive at 8 P.M.-Mother." Explanations are in order. To begin with, Dot was a 1923 model girl, seventeen and pretty. Now Dot believed that "nothing is useless to the man of sensew and here was a timely document which promised to be the forerunner of some- thing decidedly useful. Perched on the piano stool she swung her feet and smiled with the joy of anticipation. She had heard her mother mention but one cousin. Although she had never seen him she could clearly picture him-a tall, manly, honest chap with simple country ways and brown eyes-you know the type. If you do not, meet Hour heron in any of the Alger Jr. books. Dot was a schemer and here is her scheme. You see, among Dotis many friends was a very devoted and loyal Lotty. Now Lotty was home- ly-very homely-and she fairly worshipped her pretty friend. Dot planned to ask I.otty over, doll her up, present to her the above men- tioned cousin, and see that they became good friends. Henceforth, the heretofore neglected Lotty was to have a nice uboy friendf' Yes, 6'cousin" was most assuredly welcome! Her feet stopped swinging and Dot jumped down from the stool. The next moment she was talking excitedly with Lotty over the phone. To make a short story shorter, Lotty accepted Dot's invitation to "come overw that evening. Evening came, eight o,clock came. The stage was all set. Lotty looked almost pretty. fDot was great at cdolling' people upll Dot's eyes were shining as she scrutinized her face in the the mirror to detect whether her nose was in same condition. The victrola was grinding out the latest fox-trot. Eight o'clock wentg it was quarter after, now half past! Perhaps he had missed the way or-no, there was the bell! Dot left the mirror and tripped gaily to the door, opened itg smiledq swallowed hard and frowned as if puzzled, then forced a weak smile. Lotty waited and wondered, but she did not have to suffer the suspense long for Dot proceeded to usher in the guest. Smelling salts -quick! There stood Mcousinf' Tall?-yes- very tall and angularg so far, so good, but 'thisn skirts reached to the floorg Minis" hair was done in a tight knob-like twist on the top of which was primly pinned "his" befeathered hat. c'His" eyes scrutinized the girls, critically, nearsight- edly. Dot looked at Lottyg Lotty looked at Dot! Dot's cousin!-dear reader, let us mercifully draw the curtain! REBA FRANCIS .,.,... My Best Friend The most striking characteristic of my best friend is that he is singularly dog-like. It may seem queer to you that I have such close com- panionship with anyone who is thus, but I believe it is just this quality that makes me like him so. His face, I think, is the most dog-like thing about him. I am struck by this resem- blance every time I see him. He has queer little bright eyes that at once suggest an eager, wist- ful little dog. Not only his face, but also his manners, actions, personality, and even his run are suggestive of the canine. Everyone notices these characteristics but they do not seem to wonder. This may be partly explained by the fact that they are so much a part of him that they are not too striking. But. I believe it will make it much clearer to explain that his name is Mac and that he is a two-year- old Airedale. WALTER BROWNING Our Mutual Friend We never could patronize operas, Or baseball, or plays, Iive a hunch. Were it not for a certain kind person Who keeps down the price of our lunch. We all have a friend in Miss Hooker, One that could not be surpassed- For we know it's a big undertaking To plan meals that can't be out-classed. We're grateful to her for her efforts To satisfy each with his lunch And weill always remember Miss Hooker As None of the best in the bunch." A Case of "The Gold Bug" Most likely every one has read Poe's "Cold Bug." and every one remembers what a time he had deciphering the code in order to find the treasure. Whether or not that is history is a subject for discussion, but it is true that it is repeating itself. Our teachers and classmates are going through the same experience by decipher- ing our handwriting. It is no joke for the other fellow, so let us consider him. It only takes a little bit more time to write legibly. It helps others and saves their eyesight. Don't be selfish. Euci-:NIA HARRIS 48 THE ARSENAL CANNON His Lost Master BY WILLIAM IVICDANIEL HE fast-fading sunlight of a winter after- noon peered in through the dirty window panes of a dingy room in a tenement and illumined the few things therein. An old and woblily wash-stand. the mirror of which had long since vanished. shared honors with an ancient kitchen table. one leg of which had been broken and patched with a board. as the chief articles of furniture. In one corner of the room stood a broken-down hed in which an old man lav stroking the head of the handsome collie which stood at the head of the bed. "Well, Collief, the old man quavered in a voice thinned bv age. 6'l'm afraid we've come to the end of the road at last. And vou've been a faithful pal to me through it all. Collie. since you were a little pup scarce able to lead me. I couldn't have lived without you. And now, even with you . . . " His Voice grew husky and dry at the last. and he coughed. the dry, racking kind of cough that shows the last stages of consumption. The intelligent dog pricked up his ears as though to hear the old man's faint words. L'Yes. Collie." he resumed. "a mighty good pal to me. I've never had a better one. Collie. Wlien I was young, I thought . . . But she was like all the rest of them. After mv accident she . . but I canit blame her. Wlioid marry a blind artist. anvway? And nowfwho cares for a sightless old beggar that's just about to . . ." He broke into a fit of coughing. and tossed on the bed convulsed with pain. Collie licked his hand reassuringly. 'LBut Collie, if I hadn't gone blind I would have painted a picture that would have brought the world to my feetl I had just started on it when it happened. Oh, that painting was a beautiful thing! I can see it now . . . Look. Collie, on the wall there! Don't you see it? And my brushes and paints spread before it, waiting for me to come and finish it! I'm com- ing!" The old man brought himself up in the bed and stretched his arms toward the wall. A smile of ineffable content came upon his face. "I'm coming," he repeated softly. He fell back on the bed. with the smile still on his face. Collie did not understand what had happened. But after an hour had passed without a sound from the bed. he realized that somthing was wrong. Collie walked slowly to the door and opened it by pulling the string which his master had tied to the knob. He crossed the nar- row hallway and scratched at the door opposite. This was the room of an old German shoemaker who had visited the beggar once. The shoemaker opened his door to find Collie waiting. dumb pleading in his eyes. "Vell, vot do you vain?" asked the man peevishly. "I can- nod fool mit you now." Collie whined, then ran across to his master's room and back. "Is it him dot vants me?" the shoemaker asked. Collie ran back into the room as if to say, "Yes, right away." "Vell, I'll see him a minute. den I must gof, said the man. He crossed the hallway. "Mein Gottlw he exclaimed when he saw the beggar. '6Dot man is dead!" Collie looked at him uncomprehendingly. Collie still did not understand when, the day after, two men came after his master and laid him on a stretcher. Nor did he understand when they carried his master downstairs and took him away in a long black automobile. But somehow, he knew that he should follow his master on his journey. So he attempted to follow the black auto in its rapid trip through town. Somewhere, though, he lost it, and found himself wandering through strange streets which he had never before seen. Eagerly he searched for his master, or for the black auto which had taken him away, but he found nothing that day. Collie made his bed that night on the pave- ment in front of a huge skyscraper. But with the hrst peep of dawn he was up roaming the streets. attempting to find some trace of his mas- ter. Evening found him weary and footsore, but still vigilant and alert. He fed on scraps which he managed to steal from a garbage can. Thus he continued for several days, ever seeking some trace of his master. Once he thought he had found him. when he saw the black auto going through the streets. He gave chase at once, but was again outrun. One day Collie was crossing the street just as the black auto came along at break-neck speed. Heedless of all else, Collie at once started after the car which had taken his master from him. A sudden swerve around a street-car. a skid, and the black automobile raced on. leaving the man- gled body of Collie on the pavement. Collie howled in the anguish of his death wound and stirred convulsively. But, at the last of his struggles, he gave a yelp of happiness. Collie had found his master.

When report cards came out, he was not surprised to find "D" was the popular mark. He had been dreading this day and on his way home he was lost in thought. Across the street John hailed him, 'fWhat kind of marks did you get?" To this query Arthur never replied. He was trying to think of some way to pass his marks off lightly to his parents. When Arthur walked into the house he handed his mother his card saying, "With my regardsf' His mother glanced over the card and then said. "Why, Arthur. there is nothing funny about this!" "I did as well as I could," said Arthur. "I shall report this to your father this eve- ning," said his mother. "I believe that teacher had a grudge against me. She gave John all 'A's,," pleaded Arthur. "We shall see when your father comes this evening," said his mother. The afternoon was surely not enjoyed by Arthur. That evening he heard his mother say to his father, 4'I'Iis report card is simply terrible, and that remark he made when he handed it to mefi After supper Arthur's father called him into the other room, and after he finished wielding the slipper, he said, t'With my regardsf, CARROL RINGWALT A bed of violets blue, I saw Within a grassy plot, With faces upturned to the sky Theirs seemed a happy lot.

THE ARSENAL CANNON 51 Modern Surroundings How do modern surroundings better the char- acter of the present generation? They donit. No, my friends, I cannot bear to stand idly by and watch the innocent world struggle on under such a false impression. Modern surroundings do not better the character of the present genera- tion, and, furthermore, I have proof. Let us turn back to Shakespeare, the world's most famous playwright. If you will recall, dear reader, he was without the influence of modern surroundings. What would have hap- pened to Bassanio, I ask you, if Portiais maids had substituted jazz for the song they sang as he chose the casket? What would have hap- pened to Titania and Oberon if the modern psychologists had informed the world that they were optical illusions or mere visions of the subconscious mind? We shall not stop with Shakespeare, however. Let us pass on to Dick- ens. It would have been sad indeed had old Doctor Manette been forced to manufacture goloshes or Russian boots instead of shoes. He couldn't have done it, and, therefore, the whole story would have been ruined. Dumas, our celebrated French author, would never have been a literary success in this age. Do you suppose that young Edmond would have wasted his time trying to dig out of prison in this decade? No, indeed, he would have erected a radio set and sent a message to Mercedes be- fore he had been there twenty-four hours, and another good book would have been ruined by the influence of modern surroundings.

Everywhere can be felt the nearness of some impending event. In the factories everybody, from the boss molder down to the smallest ten-year-old pit boy, re- laxes as the hour approaches for his toil to end. The slatternly women who tend the looms shout bits of gossip to their neighboring workers. Even the machines run with a lighter noise, as if they are conscious of the fact that they soon will enjoy a rest. Suddenly a cord is jerked by the engineer of the knitting mills. From the exhaust on the roof of the boiler-room issues a deafening shriek which can be likened only to the cry of a wounded bull-elephant. Other whistles join in the chorus. The industrial Bulls of Bashan bel- low brazen-throatedly, but only for a moment.

Hickman, Mr. Black Ccoachj, Schultze, Lee, Feltman Basket Ball 1922-23 The season of 1922-23 in basket ball was an off one for Tech. With practically an entirely new team, Tech faced one of the stiffest schedules of any high school in the state. Time and again our team was disheartened by one and two point losses, but it kept fighting away, waiting for the tide to turn, until it de- feated the strong Jefferson team of Lafayette, 34 to 31. in the last pre-sectional game. Coach Black made numerous shifts in the lineup during the season in an effort to find a winning- combination. Over twenty different boys played on the first team during the sixteen game schedule. Tech opened the season at the Y. M. C. A. with a 32 to 31 heart-breaking loss to Logans- port. Martinsville romped away with the Green and White on their fioor, 58 to 14. Shortridge prevented our hearts from mending by a 22 to 19 victory at Tomlinson Hall. Moores- ville, there, by a score of 24 to 21, and Steele of Dayton, there, 23 to 21, helped pile up the "almost wins." Columbus defeated us, 48 to 22, in their gym. Then Manual won, 26 to 13, at Tomlinson Hall. Shelbyville slipped over a 31 to 28 victory, there, and Marion scored a 28 to 23 win at the Y. Franklin took our measure, 37 to 25, at Tom- linson Hall. Louisville sneaked out a 30 to 29 victory on their floor. Tech won her first game of the season over Southport in our gym, 33 to 26. As if to make up for it, Vincennes defeated us, 40 to 22, at the Y, and Bloomington won, 37 to 25, at Tom- linson Hall. Tech almost grabbed the Bedford game at the Y out of the fire, but the final score was Bedford 36, Tech 35. c The glorious win over Jefferson finished the schedule. In the sectional, Tech eliminated the strong West Newton team in the first round, 25 to 21. In the last half of the second game, our team weakened and Valley Mills won, 19 to 14. Man- ual won the meet. The whole story of the past season is one of ualmostsf' In seven games our team scored 184 points to their opponents 198 points, and lost every one of the seven. With practically the same team and a reasonable degree of luck, watch our smoke next year. THE ARSENAL CANNON 59 Baseball in 1923 Just before spring vacation, a shock was received which upset the entire student body. Coach Kingsolver who last spring turned out a championship nine, announced that he was going to leave Tech. He intended to play pro- fessional ball in the Three 1 League this summer and then go to the University of California this fall. After this came the appointment of a new coach. The proper officials did their work well in finding a competent coach because when students came back from spring vacation, Mr. John Mueller was at the head of baseball. Prac- tice started immediately on our athletic field where a diamond had been laid out. The team was away to a flying start when it defeated Southport, Wednesday, April eight- eenth, in a close game which ended 4-3. Klein and McLaughlin were the Southport bat- teries, and Peterson and C. Jordan started for Tech. Purdy, E. Jordan, and Mercer each got a chance to show his wares in this game in the box. Many errors were made on both sides. On the next Friday Tech journeyed to Moores- ville and came back with a 21-6 victory to her credit. Hard hitting featured the play of our team but again the errors spoiled a good game. Van Arsdale pitched the greater part of Track In 1923 After losing almost all of his 1922 state championship! track team. Coach Black built up such a strong combination for 1923 that it took the sectional with 35 4-5 points. Both fall and spring practice contributed to the making of the team. The state meet came off too late for its re- sults to be published in this magazine. Langlais. Clift, Maxwell, Smith, Neff, W. Johnson, and Wiilson won the right to enter the state meet. Maxwell continued his good work in the mile run. Up to the state he won every race without even being pressed. Clift did well in both low and high hurdles. About the middle of the season Henry John- son. star pole vaulter. died of appendicitis. His loss was greatly felt by the team. 1n presectional meets, Tech won three and lost two. The results were: Tech 53, Elwood 32 1-23 Shortridge 9 1-2. Tech 50, Nobelsville 19. Tech 51 2-3, Shortridge 22 1-3: Southport 17: Brownsburg 51 New Bethel J. Tech -1-8 1-2g Anderson 49 1-2.

What They Won One game they had won T 1 ' '. - Girls' Basket-Ball Team Has a Successful Season Tech's girls' basket-ball team had a very suc- cessful season durinfr the year of 1922-23. Only two of the elevzn games were played at Tech. The games and scores are as follows: Tech, 17 .......... Silent Hoosiers, 6 Tech, 15. .Third Christian Church, 13 Tech 8 ............ Hoosier A.

League teams were organized under Miss Abbett, Miss McKenzie, Miss Howe, and Miss Smith. These league teams played for the championship. Miss Abbett's three teams eliminated all the rest. Then these three teams played it out. From these teams the first team was picked. Miss Abbett, the coach, kept two teams to practice, but only the one team was kept to play outside teams. Geraldine Hessler lCapt.l first played guard but was later shifted to center where she played a good game for the rest of the season. Lorene Allen first played forward but turned out to be a snappy side-center. Beulah Kealing has a very good eye for the basket. Margaret Graham is her partner, and they get some good pass work in and then a basket. Irma lselin is one of the very dependable guards. Edith Hamil- ton is not so tall but she very seldom lets the forward she guards get the ball. Angeline Olsen played forward at first but when the oc- casion called for a guard she played a good game at that position. A great deal of this season's success belongs to Miss Abbett, who coached the team. The members of the team who graduate in June are: Geraldine Hessler, Beulah Kealing. lgllargaret Graham, Irma lselin, and Angeline sen. 56 THE ARSENAL CANNON 3 TIT T Mr. Gorman lmanagerl.

Nov. 28 In preparation for the state track meet which was held on our athletic Held the nineteenth of May, students made speeches in the roll rooms about the duties of Tech students as hosts to the other schools. THE ARSENAL CANNON 39 Baseball in 1923 ,lust before spring vacation, a shock was received which upset the entire student body. Coach Kingsolver who last spring turned out a championship nine, announced that he was going to leave Tech. He intended to play pro- fessional ball in the Three l League this summer and then go to the University of California this fall. After this came the appointment of a new coach. The proper ofiicials did their work well in finding a competent coach because when students came back from spring vacation, Mr. John Mueller was at the head of baseball. Prac- tice started immediately on our athletic field where a diamond had been laid out. The team was away to a flying start when it defeated Southport, Wednesday, April eight- eenth, in a close game which ended 4-3. Klein and McLaughlin were the Southport bat- teries, and Peterson and C. Jordan started for Tech. Purdy, E. Jordan, and Mercer each got a chance to show his wares in this game in the box. Many errors were made on both sides. On the next Friday Tech journeyed to Moores- ville and came back with a 21-6 victory to her credit. Hard hitting featured the play of our team but again the errors spoiled a good game. Van Arsdale pitched the greater part of this game. Wednesday, April twenty-fifth. West Newton came here to play the Green and White team. The result was another Tech victory with a 17-6 score. Errors let in most of West Newtonis runs but hard hitting made up for this. On the following Friday, Bloomington fur- nished the opposition on Tech Field and again Tech hit the ball hard for a 16-4 victory. Peterson worked nicely in this game. Tuesday, May first, was the day of the open- ing game of the city series. ln this game Tech met Shortridge on our own field. After the sec- ond inning of the scrap in which our team scored ten runs, the game was on ice. The final result was 16-5. Again Peterson pitched nice ball, striking out twelve men and allowing only one hit. The remaining Games are: D D May 9 Tech at Newcastle train!

Both fall and spring practice contributed to the making of the team. The state meet came off too late for its re- sults to be published in this magazine. Langlais. Clift, Maxwell. Smith, Neff. W. Johnson. and Wilson won the right to enter the state meet. Maxwell continued his good work in the mile run. Up to the state he won every race without even being pressed. Clift clifl well in both low and high hurdles. About the middle of the season Henry John- son. star pole vaulter, died of appendicitis. His loss was greatly felt by the team. ln presectional meets, Tech won three and lost two. The results were: Tech 53, Elwood 32 1-2g Shortridge 9 1-2. Nobelsville -1-9. 2-3, Shortridge 22 1-3g Southport Tech 503 Tech 51 17: Brownsburg 51 New Bethel -1-. 1-2g Anderson 49 1-2. Tech 48 Tech 39: Connersville 60. What They Wort One game they had won ln score and spirit too,- Another they had begun And all were pushing it thru. How they did fight and tumble For their school so brave, But never were seen to fumble, While the audience watched so grave. Harder! and harder! they fought For they were going to wing And never forgetting what they sought They foughtl they fought! and fought again. But when the gun signal sounded, And they knew theyid lost the game, They were not real downhearted, For in spirit they'd won fame.

A Freshie's Idea OF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN OCEAN VoYAcE AND A LAND TRIP The sea is a large body of salt water less than the ocean, while land is the solid part of the sur- face of the earth-a place to live on which is much needed. There is a great difference between solidness and unsolidness. When a thing is solid it is tiring stands stillg is not movable. But when it is unsolid it cannot be walked upon. The unsolid is water, and the solid is land. While traveling on sea your life is in danger because if a sea should break your life would be no more. It is also lonesome on the sea because you hardly see anything besides water. But while traveling on land your life is safe only from accident. But you are on solid ground. You are not lonesome because you see every-' thing. At a Christmas dinner in Washington a well- known professor was called upon to speak.

When we got out to the place where the circus is held, we walked down a road between the side shows. Say, they was sure funny. One of 'em had the picture of a great, big, fat lady on the front of it. Gee whiz, she was even bigger than Ma is. Then they had a giant, and a dwarf, and a lady what draped snakes around her neck and didn't mind it at all. Sis ain't like her. Ever' time Sis sees a fishin' worm she yells, Then we went inside and saw the monkeys and the elephants and ever'thing. Dad bought some peanuts and we fed the monkeys and elephants. I only got to feed them about three peanuts 'cause Dad wouldn't let me. When we got inside the big tent with the rings in it, some lady what was standing around lookin' at the men asked Dad to tie her shoe string, and when Dad did it, everybody laughed but I don't know why. Pretty soon there was a parade went around the tent. Gee, they sure had some swell lookin' ladies in it. Some of 'em were dressed up like Cleopatra or King Tut's wife, I donlt know which. Gosh, I wish Dot, that is my girl, was as pretty as them. Then they had a lot of clowns, and girls and men what swung on ropes way up in the air. I came home and tried to do some of the things they did this morning, but for some reason or other I fell off and liked to busted my bean. Guess is must take lots of practice to do them things. Finally some ladies came in and rode around on some horses standin, up and not holdin' on or anything. After that Dad bought me a balloon and we came home. Ma said that if Dad went to another circus this year she would know he was in his second childhood. Father: Are you satisfied with school, son? Son: No, they made me wash my face, and my dog bit me ,cause he didn't know me. Edwin: Say, dad, remember that story you told me about when you were expelled from school? Dad: Yes.
