TIEDGEN --- --.. English and Citizenship
To know, to esteem, to love, and then to part,
Makes up life's tale to many a feeling heart.
The time is drawing near when we must inevitably part and assume
our various tasks in the world of today. Before we become separated,
and while we are yet united as a class, we think it is appropriate for us
to make some outward signs of our gratitude and devotion to those
teachers who have so zealously guided and assisted us in our various
enterprises throughout our high school career.
We may honestly say that to them we owe our ideals and ambitions
with which we are about to enter society.
It is due to their earnest efforts and sympathetic understanding of
our faults and caprices, and their patient endeavors in striving to cor-
rect them that we are not going out into the world as self-centered young
people, but are able to take our places in this vast republic as useful
and intelligent citizens.
In their task and responsibility of enlightening the minds of youth,
we see the evidences of a sympathetic interest in humanity and of un-
selfish lives from which we have learned that the greatest happiness
in life is derived from living for others.
They have, moreover, caused us to realize what a vast world of
opportunity lies before us, and because of their cheerful influence upon
us, we are able to enter that world with an optimistic view of life.
We may also say that the faith and hope which they have placed
in us instills a desire to become successful men and women, to realize
our responsibilities, and to assume them in such a manner that they
shall be proud of their students.

It was during the Summer, while I was spending my vacation at
Green Island, that I attempted another of my wild projects which met
with no better success than many of my previous ones.
Although the war was over, many of its participants were still
feeling its cruel reaction, and even in the secluded little village of
Green Island, the resorters were not able to ignore the call to help
One morning, as Mary Rogers and I were sitting on the veranda of
Emerald Inn contemplating a game of tennis, my dear aunt, our
chaperon, tried to interest us in a newspaper giving the most recent
statistics of European deaths caused from lack of food.
"My dear children, you are too frivolous and too obstinately
insensible to the griefs of others. Why don't you do something really
worth while?" Mrs. Bassett's daughter has made a house-to-house
canvass and, so far, has collected ten dollars and iifty cents for
"Yes, ten dollars and forty-nine cents of that she has used for her
taxi bill, probably," contributed my cousin, somewhat acidly.
"Perhaps, but at least, that one cent will be given with a feeling
of love and sympathy."
This parting remark took a much deeper hold upon us than my
aunt realized, we were so lost in our thoughts that we scarcely heeded
The next morning found Mary and me making our way to the
village where a troupe of cheap vaudeville players intended to put
on a show for the coming week. After our lecture on selfishness, we
had decided we must do something by which more than one cent would
be sent to Europe.
Two hundred dollars was to be our goal. I
After locating the manager of the troupe, we finally succeeded in
extracting a promise from him that he would put on an entirely new
bill, which consisted largely of acrobatic feats and a hackneyed magi-
cian, for one night to help us in our charitable enterprise.
"Seeing it's for a good cause, I'll put it on for only fifty dollars!"
he announced condescendingly.
"Fifty dollars for that amateur stuff!" we thought, but ended our
interview politely, saying, "We'll think it over?
But we did no such thing. If people were starving, why should
we diminish the proceeds by paying a part of them to a vaudeville
troupe? Why not put on the show ourselves.
The next few days found us very busy. After taking four other
girls into our confidence, we finally made out a program consisting of
some of the latest song hits, and such other features as Mr. Hoge's
"Interpretation of the Movies", "The League of Nations' Dance", "The
Looking Glass Farce," and the "Imperial Green Island Ballet."
Our rehearsals went on secretly until the hand-made posters were
distributed, stating that a small company of actors would exhibit their
talent on the evening of July fourteenth. By withholding further
details, we hoped to arouse the curiosity of the villagers and farmers,
and have a full house.
We induced Bill Hanley to rent us the old moving picture hall for
ten dollars. That ended our business transactions, we thought, and
secured us a fine collection for the orphans.
We had planned to rest until eight o'clock on the next day and
then inform our friends we were going to the village show. We were
sure our appearance at the village theater would be a complete surprise
since the two musicians and the handy man, who pulled the curtain
and shifted our necessary pieces of furniture, such as the looking glass,
promised complete secrecy.
"The chorus girls of "The Passing Show" are certainly making
themselves scarce!" said one of the fellows at the hotel. "I haven't
even seen the vamps!"
"They're probably good looking peaches," Mary suggested, as
calmly as if in two hours she would not be exercising her vocal powers
to such an extent that the Europeans would be glad they lived over
At half past six, we all managed to meet at the cross roads with
our make up and clothes. June Crofton was going to drive us to the
back entrance of the rickety old show house. June was a flighty girl
and as the car swerved aside to avoid running over a member of the
suicide club-a chicken-she lost control of it, and we ran straight into
a telephone pole.
The windshield was shattered, the radiator dented, one light a
complete wreck, and still worse, the occupants were a sorry sight.
June's arms were badly cut, Mary's head bruised, and Ethel's ankle
sprainedg I was the only one uninjured.
Sometimes things aren't as bad as they seem. After we had torn
up some of our royal robes and bandaged June's arms, she tried to
start the car and it actually responded.
Shortly afterwards, a weary, disheartened group of girls drew up
at the rear entrance of the theater amid groans, sobs, etc. Since I was
the only presentable one left, I was delegated to announce the castas-
trophe to the audience. But when I peeked out at the audience from
behind the curtain, and saw the crowd of eager, expectant farmers, to
whom such a show was an event, I changed my mind.
"I can't do it," I said, "They need amusement as badly as the
Europeans need food. Besides, there's Bassett's daughter who collected
ten dollars and fifty cents, sitting in the front row. How she would
laugh if she heard of our failure!"
. "What can we do about it?" came a chorus of angry voices.
"I know! While you keep the audience entertained, I'll get the
vaudeville troupe to put on a show. They'll only charge fifty dollars!
We will still have a good deal left. Mary, you and June aren't hurt
so very badly. You rig up and go into the audience and act like regu-
lar 'rubes.' Flirt with the men, and ask the women if they've seen your
husband. You'll simply have to suffer for a little whilef' Then I was
The manager acted very ungracious. He said if a crowd of girls
were putting on a show and trying to spoil his business, he could not
help them out for fifty dollars.
After much gesticulating, expostulating, and anything which con-
sumed the valuable time, I succeeded in engaging the vaudeville troupe
for one hundred and fifty dollars.
When we reached the show house, the crowd was in a jolly humor.
The girls had done their work well. When the performance finally
began we slipped out and went home.
The next day we met to discuss the situation. Ethel had been
more seriously injured than the rest. 'We counted the money taken
in and found a total of one hundred and seventy-six dollars. Sub-
tracting from that one hundred and fifty dollars for the troupe, ten
dollars for the hall, and ten dollars for the musicians, there would
be six dollars left.
"Six dollars will be sent with love and sympathy," quoted Mary.
"Nothing doing!" June interrupted. "You've got to help me pay
for the smashed car. The garage man said it would cost eighty-three
dollars and I need some help."
In the end We each paid one-sixth of eighty-three dollars and sent
the six dollars "with love and sympathy."
THE BONNET AND THE RAIN
The day had been so dull and Warm,
It caused us all to sigh,
When in a flash, We saw, afar,
A cloud up in the sky.
The air grew thick, and thicker still,
We could not breathe so Well.
The Whole sky, now with the clouds did fill,
The rain came down pell-mell!
"Oh," Wailed a trim young maid, aghast,
As she began to fret,
"Pa says this bonnet is my last,
And now it will get wet!"
A poor, old lady tottering came,
The rain around her poured.
The miss Walked past her all the same,
Her bonnet might get spoiled.
The poor, old lady looked amazed at this young thing so rude.
"Ah, shelter me!" she cried aloud.
"Impossible, I'd spoil my hood,"
The pert young thing avowed.
The old world rushes, helter-skelter, so
We must look apart
From those who have a bonnet to shelter
Instead of a loving heart.
C. L. PURCHASE.
Johnnie Williamson's Tie
What do we wear neckties for, anyway, especially those big, bright
red ones that are so hard to get on? Have you ever been late for
the theater or dance, and then, you just could not make that tie stay
on? Well, it just spoils your whole evening. You walk about wonder-
ing what people are saying. Is it on straight? Is it all wrinkled up?
And then, at last, the evening is over and you get home and look into
the mirror, only to find that the tie was all right, after all.
Johnnie Williamson stood before his mirror, struggling valiantly
with his new tie. It was the evening of the school ball, and John had
asked the very popular Mabel Wiltse to accompany him to the dance.
Mabel had beauxs galore, and Johnnie surely felt proud that she had
accepted him. Of course, he must look his best, for, perhaps, he might
please her, and not be cast off so quickly as many of her admirers had
been. At last, Johnnie became exasperated and lost his temper com-
pletely. Curse followed curse, until our hero had exhausted all the
curses contained in his vocabulary, which was quite a feat, since his
supply was, by no means limited.
"Quarter to eight," he exclaimed. "Got to be there at 8:15! Like
to get the guy who invented these things."
But, at last, after much pulling and tugging, the darned thing was
on. Johnnie dashed from the house and hurried down the street. But
on his way, these doubtful thoughts began to assail him. "Do I look
all right? That tie! I wonder if it's crooked? What will Mabel
think of me?"
Mabel came to the door.
"Hello, Mabel,"-Johnnie made a quick tug at his tie.-"I hope
you're feeling well, I feel just like having a great time"-glances
around to see if there is a mirror within reach.
"Well, Johnnie, you're just on time. Most of the men come around
so early. But I'm all ready. I feel as if I were in magic boots. I
could dance all night."
John's face was scarlet. He fumbled with his hat. He had never
before felt so embarrassed. He felt sure that Mabel was looking at
his tie. And he just stood there like a dummy!
At the dance, the situation became even more distasteful to poor
Johnnie. He could not keep off his partner's feet. All the eyes of the
dancers seemed to be fixed upon him.
"I can't dance tonight, Mabel, I've ruined your pumps. I hope
you will forgive me," whispered John as he was waltzing with
his friend. ,
"Oh, I guess I can. It's quite noticeable that you can't dance to-
night. Who are you thinking about, anyway? I hope it isn't that red-
headed Jones girl over in the corner. You've been paying her quite
a bit of attention tonight," replied Mabel, just a little coldly.
Johnnie noticed the tone of her voice. He knew what it meant.
She felt foolish dancing with a fellow who wore a rumpled up tie.
After the dance, he went to the dressing room and "fussed" again
with that troublesome little nuisance. One thing comforted him, for
he saw three of his friends engaged in the same process. But the tie
just would not change its appearance for the better. The more John
fussed, the worse the tie seemed to become. At last, he returned to
the ball room, feeling even more ill at ease.
Finally, the evening ended.
"Shall we walk or ride home?" asked John.
He felt sure Mabel did not care to walk with a clown like him, but,
nevertheless, he thought he would ask her, anyway.
"Let's walk," replied Mabel, much to John's surprise. "It isn't
far, and it's such a wonderful night. Oh, I'm glad that's over. It's
such a relief to be in the open air," sighed Mabel when they reached
"Well, I suppose you ought to be glad. I've spoiled the whole
evening for you."
"Well, now, I wouldn't say that," replied Mabel, laughing softly.
Then came the walk home in the moonlight. The streets were
very quiet, not even an automobile was seen. Mabel and John walked
along in silence, each was attempting to read the mind of the other.
Finally, when they reached Mabel's house, she asked, with a touch
"How does your tie feel, Johnnie?"
"I knew you noticed it," answered John, downheartedly. "It looked
awful. Everyone seemed to look at me. How foolish you must
Mabel laughed. "Well, I don't think it looked so bad. In fact a
number of girls spoke to me of your beautiful tie. Just think! They
even asked if it were a gift from me. How silly some girls are!"
"But how did you know my tie was troubling me?" asked Johnnie.
"Well, you see, I know men rather well. I've watched my brother
quite often and I know all your weaknesses. I saw you were not at
ease, and I knew it must be your tie. Besides," explained Mabel, "I
was in the same boat as you. You can't imagine how glad I was when
I got out of the place. I did something just awfully foolish. You
won't tell if I tell you? Promise?"
"Honest-cross my heart, I won't."
"Well, then, here goes. You see, John, we girls just love to wear
these puffs on our ears, the bigger the better. CThey are such horrible
things and I hate them.5 I wanted to have some great big ones and I
did something terrible. I bet you'l1 never forgive me if I tell you."
"Forgive you? Well, I guess it would be a pretty poor sport who
wouldn't forgive you. Well, come on. Confess your great crime. Was
it murder or something? I'll be the judge of this affair."
Then Mabel looked up at him, her eyes wide open with mock fear
and her lips pursed. "Oh, John, I put some paper in my puffs to make
them big. You can't imagine how I felt at the party. I was so afraid
that they would show. Oh, forgive me, John, please," and so saying
Mabel sobbed piteously upon the shoulder of Johnnie and he, like one
well versed in the art of love-making, fondly embraced her.
"Why, Mabel, that Wasnlt anything."
"Oh, but it was so silly of me. I'm such a little fool," cried Mabel.
"Oh, but you are not," said Johnnie.
"Oh, but I am!"
"Keep quiet. You know I'm to be the judge of this affair," com-
manded Johnnie authoritatively.
"Well then, judge, what is my sentence? Hurry, for this suspense
will kill me."
"Prepare, young lady, for the sentence is a severe one," said
"Oh, dear, you make me suffer so. I'm only a girl and--'i
"Oh, Mabel, look at the moon," exclaimed John, and Mabel looked.
The moon was directly above them and Mabel received her sentence. 4
The Black Gems Of Cassa
The long line began to move snake-like and glittering toward the
gate of the city. From a window of her palace, the Princess Parthis
watched, and her cruel heart beat fast as she saw this line of warriors
who were going forth on her own selfish mission. She was a beautiful
princess, but dissatisfied and ambitious. Her very whims became laws,
and this mission was her latest fancy. She stood at her window un-
movable until the last of the line had vanished outside the great gate
of the city. Then turning into the large room, she went before an
image of the God Esar, and throwing herself at the feet of the idol
"Oh, Esar, in thy power it lies. Give them strength to bring to
their princess, the great black necklace. That necklace now in the
temple of Cassa, in the land of the demon Assyrians. Give power,
I implore thee, to The Babyloniansf'
Rising, she bade one of her maidens burn a sacrifice to the god.
Another handmaid she called to take down her hair, and then the
princess lay calmly down on her silken cushions. The warm Eastern
breezes played over her dark face and hair, but she was soon lost in
sleep, dreaming of the conquered Assyrians.
The Babylonian and Assyrian armies had many fierce battles.
There was much blood-shed and desructiong but after several days of
war, the Babylonians forced their way to the temple of Cassa. This
temple was a magnificent old structure, six hundred feet in height, and
its walls were rich with carvings. It was sacred to the Assyrian god,
Padueg and the most esteemed and valued treasure in it was the rope of
black pearls. These were what the Babylonians were to take to their
princess, no matter what the cost.
At last the day came, when the Babylonian warriors were to re-
turn to their native country with the war prize. The gates of the
city were thrown open, and there was great revelry and feasting.
The Princess and her court were assembled under a huge canopy on
the plain over which the army was to pass. At the head of the army
came Benon, the general. He rode a sleek, black steed, and following
him came an Ethopian slave, carrying on a satin cushion, the elaborate
When Benon reached the princess, he dismounted, took the cushion
from the slave and bowing low before the dipros on which the princess
was seated, presented her with the treasure saying:
"Oh divine majesty, I have fulfilled thy mission. I have brought
also to thee, oh Parthis, an aged man who was once the guard of
thy necklace in the temple of Cassa. He alone can relate to thee the
tale of our spoil."
The princess bade him rise and addressed him thus: l
"Thou, Benon hast completed thy duty. Bring now before me this
creature, who would relate the tale. Make certain, Benon, he speaks
Two slaves then brought before the throne the old man, Narga.
He was forced to salute the princess as Benon had done, and then began
These were the words with which he brought it to an end. G
"Some day, I feel, that we Assyrians shall recover our black Jewels,
but until then we shall be ever watchful of them. And thou, Parthis,
thou will never have peace, while you possess them. Mark my words
well, all who hear, who ever has these jewels shall lose them, for they
shall be stolen. I care not who owns them. Wherever the jewels go,
there will be war until they are restored. But, if they be given back
without bloodshed, the last owner shall be happy."
After the princess had grown tired of her necklace, it was locked
away with the other treasures of the court and almost forgotten.
But, in Assyria, the black jewels were remembered. In the heart
of every Assyrian simmered wrath and revenge. Then an order of
Assyrian men was formed. Their leader was Magon, and they swore
a solemn oath that they and their descendants would never give up
the search until the black jewels were restored to the temple of Cassa.
The ages rolled on, Babylon rose and fell, the Assyrians had their
day, but they did not recover their jewels. The necklace was taken
from one place to another. How, only the gods know.

Sylvia Zane had been studying in Paris for several months. She
was one of these American girls who have plenty of money, and like
their freedom. She was pretty and frivolous, and at the present time,
she was trying her hand at painting.
Quite frequently she visited old curiosity shops in search of
some old minatures. It was on one of these visits that she found a
string of black pearls. She had happened to stop to inquire about a
small painting in the window, and while the owner of the shop was
wrapping it, she wandered about looking over the stock.
The shop was very old and dusty. There were shelves on the
walls covered with the usual curios found in such places. In a corner
of one of the lower shelves, she saw an odd, red velvet box. It was very
dusty, and as she picked it up, a spider ran out from behind it. On
opening it, she found the string of black pearls.
"Oh, monsieur," she cried, "how much do you want for these?"
"They are worth two-hundred francs," he replied.
"Let me see," said Sylvia thoughtfully, "that is forty dollars, is it
"Yes, mademoisellej' said the old man, "do you want them?"
"I think I do," said Sylvia, "because they are so odd. Where did
they come from?"
"I could not tell you. Most of this stock was here when I bought
the shop. Will there be anything else?"
"No, that is all for now."
Sylvia was very delighted with her new beads, and wore them
She remained in Europe until August of 1914, when so many
Americans left on account of the war.
Sylvia's home was in New York City. When she returned, she
found life quite a bore. There was nothing for this young adventur-
ous person to do. It seemed that many young Americans needed some-
thing to occupy themselves with at that time. And, at last, that word
came-War! Then Sylvia was busy, canteen work, Red Cross, and
motor corps service, everything came at once.
At one of the camps near her home, Sylvia renewed an old
acquaintance with Jack Haccum, whom she had met in college. Every
Sunday found Jack at the Zane home, all furloughs were spent with
Sylvia. At last came the day of departure. Before Jack left, he made
sure that Sylvia would be waiting for him when he came back.
Again came dull and tiresome days for Sylvia, in spite of all her
duties. Then came the day of anxiety and suspense, when Jack was
to lead his company "over the top." Next was the message, he had
been wounded in action. Sylvia grew more serious and a little older
during these days.
On one of her days off duty, Sylvia went to a jeweler's shop to have
her watch regulated. She was dressed very plainly, her only ornament
being her black pearls. As she was explaining the condition of her
watch to the salesman, he noticed her beads and said:
"Why, Miss Zane, what beautiful pearls! You certainly did not
get them here, did you?"
Sylvia told him of the purchase, and added.
"I don't imagine they're of very great value, for they cost only
The man who was waiting on Sylvia was a foreigner, and had a
foreign accent very hard to describe. As he looked at the beads, his
eyes narrowed and a look of triumph came over his face.
"Would you wish to have them tested, Miss Zane. I'm sure they
must be worth a great deal more," said the foreigner.
"Well, now that you've aroused my curiosity I believe I shall,"
said Sylvia smiling.
"Very well, you may leave them now, if you wish. Call for them
any day within the next two weeks."
Sylvia took the beads from about her neck and put them into the
man's hands. When she had left, he clasped them to his heart, for
there was no one else in the store, and murmured, "Cassa is avenged."
The rumor that the war could not last much longer began to
spread throughout the country. Everyone was waiting, waiting. Sylvia
had Word that Jack would be among the first sent back, because he
was still quite ill.
One day when she was shopping, she stopped to get her beads.
The same man waited upon her.
"Yes, Miss Zane," he said, "you have quite a rare necklace here,
quite rare. We could not determine the exact value, but it must be in
the thousands. Take good care of it."
And Sylvia took the necklace, and never dreamed that in the safe
of the store, lay the pearls which she had purchased in France. When
she was leaving, the man said:
"The prophecy has been fulfilled, Miss Zane."
A And Sylvia replied: "Yes, isn't it wonderful?" She had refer-
ence to the end of the war, but the foreigner was thinking of the words
of the old man, Narga, spoken so many centuries ago.
It may have been only a coincidence-but on the very day that
Jack came home to Sylvia, an Assyrian arrived in a far off country, and
with him the necklace of black pearls. They were returned to what
was left of the temple of Cassa. At last, the order of Magon had ful-
iilled its mission through the work of the Assyrian jeweler.
And so the words of Narga had come true, "Whoever has these
jewels shall lose them, for they shall be stolen. I care not who owns
them. Wherever they go, there will be war until they are restored.
But, if thy be given back without bloodshed, the last owner shall be
Betty Needs Awakening
The Cottages near the beach were all in a state of excitement.
This was being placed and moved. Everything was having the last
touches put upon it. Surely some great personage was expected. To
the people working, a great person was coming. Betty Smith, their
beloved schoolmate, who had been so sick was to arrive in the after-
noon. Just before graduation, Betty had had a nervous breakdown
and although she had recovered physically, she was not yet her old self.
She wasn't interested in anything and always had a dreamy, listless
look in her eyes. Her friend, by much planning, had persuaded Mrs.
Smith and Betty to spend two weeks at the beach.
"Thank goodness that's done. I'm so tired I'm ready to die."
"All you have to do now is to see that Betty and Mrs. Smith have
a lunch when they get here. Oh, by the way, Sue, is Jane ready to
carry out her part of our plan? We'll all rest tonight but We'll be
ready for a good time tomorrow."
"Oh yes, don't worry about Jane doing her share for Betty. I'll
go in and see about that lunch now."
Sue ran off, entered the cottage, and started to work harder than
ever. Suddenly she looked at the clock, only half an hour to dress in!
"Janel Jane! come and help me dress." Jane came in all dressed
and ready for Betty.
"Well, Sue, what are you so excited about, you only have to
change your apron." .
"Just as if Betty's coming wasn't enough to excite anyone."
At the end of the half hour, Jane and Sue joined the rest of the
young people who were out watching for the auto that was to bring
Betty. Soon some one yelled, its coming, and before the rest could add
anything, the auto had stopped and Jack was assisting Betty and Mrs.
Smith from the automobile. Jane and Sue looked at one another.
Surely this was the old Betty. She looked so beautiful in her trim hat
and thin dress. But no, she was pale and tired-looking. It seemed
to require an effort for her to speak. Jane Went to the rescue.
"Now don't all be bothering Betty with questions until she's rested.
Come on up to our cottage, Betty, and rest for a while."
Betty, Mrs. Smith, and Jane went up to the cottage. Some of
the boys started to get wood for a big fire that night. Sue and Jack
started to walk slowly back to the cottage. Jack had a pained expres-
sion on his face.
"Sue, did you see how she looked? Just as if she wanted to go
straight back home. Oh, I do hope this will help her. Sue, you'll do
your best to help her, won't you?"
"Just as if I Wouldn't do anything for Betty. Say Jack, don't
think you're the only one that likes her."
The next morning all were up early, but none earlier than Jane.
Their plan was to keep Betty amused all the while without tiring her.
Today, was Jane's day to provide the fun. As she was strolling along
the beach, she passed the huge boulder, as they called it, and suddenly
came upon Betty.
"Why, up so early Betty? It's my turn to worry today."
"I just felt like coming out here, and I found this lovely spot and
"Betty, do you want to know what we're going to do today?" And
from that time on, Jane talked incessantly to Betty for half an hour.
A week passed. Betty did all that the others wanted her to do.
The days were full of fun for all. But many times Betty would slip
away from the crowd and always would be found in her favorite spot.
Jack was plainly worried. Betty had been his best school pal. He
was planning and working, in fact, this whole outing had been planned
by him for her benefit. Would Betty plan something? He was anxiously
awaiting her response to his plan. Two more days passed, and Sue was
busy with her "surprisal," as she termed it. All were eagerly waiting
for it to be sprung, for Sue was next to Betty in thinking up good times.
Evening came. Sue's party was one that no one expected. So
different! It was a regular childrens' party. They had held all their
meals in the open, had swimming contests, short stories, and childrens'
games, and then, to top it all, a big bonfire was built and stories told.
After a while, the group gradually separated and Jack and Sue started
down the beach. They reached the boulder, and sat down busily talk-
ing all the while. About three yards from the boulder sat Betty. As
she sat there, looking out over the water, she seemed asleep. She
did not know how long Jack and Sue had been talking before she
noticed that they were there. She was attracted by hearing her name.
Jack was talking.
"You know, Sue, you are almost taking Bettyls place. Don't in-
terrupt me, you know you are. If Betty was our old Betty, she would
plan just such a day as this for us. Sue, Betty doesn't seem to care to
get well. She makes no effort. Sue, I'd give anything if she'd only use
her imagination! I don't believe she is even planning a good time like
the rest of you girls did." With this, the two arose and started back to
Betty sat still. Was it true? Was Sue taking her place with Jack?
It seemed to her as if she had just heard something for the first time,
"Well, I'll just show all of them. I'll show them I can plan a good
time. Use my imagination! You bet I will." Betty arose and slipped
to her own room to think. It was slow, hard, work at first. It all
seemed new and strange to her.
I The next day, for the first time, Betty and Jack walked out down
the beach. After that walk, Jack wore a puzzled look as if half ex-
pecting something. He said nothing to the others, however.
Their last real day at the beach came. The weather was like the
people, in an undecided state of expectancy. What was going to
happen? It looked like rain for a while, then it cleared up again and,
worst of all, Betty kept to the house. All the rest of the young people
were out on the beach. I
When they all came back to the cottage, Betty and her mother
were waiting for them with two huge baskets all packed.
"We're all going away back into the woods for a change, every-
thing we've done so far, has been near the beach. Mother and I saw
a good place to picnic about a mile from here, on our way out, we're
going to hike there for a real picnicf' Too surprised to say anything,
they all prepared to start. Jack bustled around like mad. His face
beaming with delight. Such a lunch! "And I planned it all myself."
That night they had their usual bonfire on the beach. They were
all tired out. And after toasting marshmallows for a while, they
separated into groups and walked along the cool beach.
The next morning, in the crush of packing, Betty slipped out and
went down to her favorite spot for the last time. She had not been
there long when Jack joined her. They sat in silence for a while, then
Jack said: "Betty, I've been trying to think what happened to make
you wake up."
Betty slowly said, "Oh, nothing in particular. I just started to
use my imagination again." Jack looked at her in a strange manner
but said nothing for a time.
"Betty, do you know Sue has Bob's class ring?"
"Yes, Betty, won't you take mine?"
"Well, Jack, I suppose now that I'm using my imagination, and
been awakened, I imagine I will?" and she smiled.
"Betty, you've got the best imagination of all the girls. Somehow
your plans best."
TOAST TO THE GRAD
Here's to the sweet girl grad,
In prohibition's H20
May she survive her tender years,
And live to gather in the dough,
And pile it up in dollar disks,
Or cut it out in natty rings,
To grace the table of the gink,
Who buys her hats and other things.
Roses and song birds be hers,
With never a cruel thorn
To cumber the path she must tread,
That the feet of the mothers have worn.
Presidents, princes, and men,
Be her gift to the world's strife
And a soft aureole of love for a crown,
To brighten a beautiful life.
Here's to the breezy male grad,
Whose downy cheek announces him,
An infant in the hands of fate,
With destiny obscure and grim.
May he forget his former view,
That life is but a mammoth cheese,
Within whose meaty masses men
Like mice disport them as they please.
May he bestir and wake,
And take the part that Waits,
For action, action and the grip
That steers the course of states.
The future's to the young,
And bright indeed it dawns,
Be men in life's great game and not,
As puppet blocks or pawns.
One September morning in 1917, 214 scared little Freshmen pre-
sented themselves at the door of old Arthur Hill, vainly striving to
appear like nonchalant old-timers. Once inside, we proceeded to lose
ourselves and also to be led down to the traditional watering trough
by our well-meaning fellow-students. We were sadly disillusioned
too, by the actions of some of our older brothers and sisters, especially
in their book-stacking episode, but they were so severely punished for
this that we resolved to always be good little children, and observe the
Finally, by the untiring eiorts of Miss Nash and Miss Davis, we
collected our scattered wits and boldly resolved to show those upper
classmen what WE could do. Accordingly, to guide us in this noble
undertaking, we elected for our class oflicers:
Reginald French ..................... President
Paul Hackett ......... ---Vice-President
Russel Stickney ...................... Secretary
Margaret Curtis ...................... Treasurer
When the athletic season opened, we found, to our delight, that
we could boast of two representatives, Roy Spiekerman and Lloyd
The bolt, however, which startled the world, surely was a hum-
dinger- we prepared to give two dances, one big, one little. These
both proved to be great social successes and, if not financially so, they
obtained for us the coveted reputation of being live wires. After this
exhibition of our wonderful ability in this direction, we settled down
to learn all the tricks of the trade from our wily fellow students in
preparation for the coming year.
How different it was to be back the next year as Sophomores!
Were not we now old timers? Could we not practically own the earth?
You may be sure that these 116 Sophs did not overlook any of their
new privileges. We soon chose as our leaders:
Allen Strimbeck ...................... President
Elizabeth Alderton ............... Vice-President
Catherine Rice ....................... Secretary
Roy Spiekerman ..................... Treasurer
No social event entered our gay young lives this year, but we were
distinguished by these classmen in athletics, Roy Spiekerman, Wfolfred
Ocksenkehl, Dale Morningstar, Martin Martzouka, Harry Appleby, and
Russel Stickney. Many of the members of the Philomathic Society and
Cadet Club were also Sophomores.
Oh, boy! Watch us go,
Take a look we're not so slow,
It sure does take some speed to pass,
Twenty-one, our Junior class.
With such a yell as this to live up to, we saw that we would have
to be on our toes every minute. So, early in the year, we gave the
honors of the class to these members:
Margaret Curtis .......... ......... P resident
Laura Schwahn ............ ---Vice-President
Catherine Rice .... .... ...-.. S e cretary
Ralph Schust --- .... Treasurer
We decided to get our pins and rings immediately, that we might
enjoy them the longer. Everybody agreed that this was a corking idea
Cmaybe you think the Seniors weren't jealous when they saw our
This year a great many of the members of the Classical Club,
Philomathic Society, Girls' Club, Hi-Y., and the Mathematical Club
were Juniors. So were five of the members of the debating teams-
Elma Bradford, Robert Allardyce, Elmo Wilkinson, Margaret Curtis,
and Bessie Close.
Five of us also were in the Oratorical Contest, and we were mighty
proud when it was announced that one of our members, Russel Shep-
herd, won the contest. In athletics we certainly got the shoes with
Maurice Brown, "Chick" Kehren, "Kid" Roeser, "Jack" Ocksenkehl,
and Ida Osterbeck as our representatives.
Our Junior Hop, "the best high school party ever given," could not
be called anything but a success, even financially. We had eats, wicker
furniture, colored lights, music, 'n everything.
As to our Play, we chose "The Lion and the Mouse," and were
able to get together a record-breaking crowd. The financial returns
from this were so great that we were able to give the Seniors a real
banquet at the Canoe Club. "Give unto others," you know. After the
eating, there were speeches, dancing, and the presenting of the Horn-
we got away with it too-though not without trouble for some mem-
bers of the class.
We soon heard that the Seniors had cleared expenses, and that
they were going to give a fine return down at Wenona Beach. With
this happy event, our careers as merry Juniors ended, and we paused
for a couple of months in our work and our play, to rest up for
the iinal fray.
At last, after so many years of anticipation, 95 dignified Seniors
presented themselves in the High School for inspection and initiation
Cmostly the latterj. How burdened we felt with all the responsibilities
of the world resting upon our shoulders! This feeling gradually wore
away, and we were now able to participate, with much enthusiasm, in
the exciting election of our officers. The returns were found to be:
Bessie Close .......................... President
Duane Chamberlain ............... Vice-President
Robert Allardyce .................... .Secretary
Herbert Wettlaufer ................... Treasurer
In athletics these shining lights made us famous: Maurice Brown,
Roscoe Hefron, Jack Ochsenkehl, Chick Kehren, Bishop Davis, Morgan
Gile, Orville Gile, Kid Roeser, Jim Hay, Elmo Wilkinson, Ida Oster-
beck, Pauline Smith, Dorothea Reichle, and Ila Marble. As before, we
made up a large part of the membership in the various organizations.
After Christmas, we gave a snappy party that everyone enjoyed.
It consisted, not only of dancing, but also of stunts. The attendance
was very select, but nevertheless, we didn't go in the hole.
Finally, after much discussion, our Senior Play, "The Man on the
Box" was chosen and presented at the Auditorium, May 19. This was
a huge success, due to our fine cast and the excellent coaching of Mr.
Rickerman. Some of the leading characters were: Olive Hymans,
Margaret Curtis, Jack Ochsenkehl, Roscoe Hefron, and Morgan Gile.
And now it is up to the Juniors to give us a banquet. We feel
sure that they will do all in their power to bring this about, for they
know how eagerly we are looking forward to emptying our treasury
in their behalf-that is-for the Senior Return.
It has not yet been decided where the Baccalaureate Service will
take place, but the Graduation exercises are to be held in the Audi-
torium, June 23. We are all looking forward to this occasion with an
eagerness not untinged, however, with a feeling of regret at leaving the
dear old school where we have passed so many happy days. After
graduation we will all go on with our education, some in colleges and
universities, and others directly in the school of life. But may we all
go out into the world to live our own lives, armed with our Class Motto:
Doing all the good we can,
By all the means we can,
In all the ways we can,
At all the times we can,
To all the people we can,
As long as ever we can.

While traveling in Egypt, I was much impressed by a strange
belief, current among several of the nomadic tribes there, that to
whomever sleeps in the shadow of the Sphinx on the first night of a full
moon, she imparts some portion of her secret. Upon first hearing of it,
this seemed to me a silly superstition, but after viewing for myself that
solemn image hewn from rugged stone, I myself felt the silent influence
which writers say has for centuries awed the world. Then, I was
converted, and I resolved that in exactly one week, the moon
being at that time in the first quarter, I would spend the night in the
shadow of the Sphinx.
I went the customary round of sight-seeing during that week, and
having climbed the great pyramid in the afternoon of the day set for my
weird experiment returned, to the hotel, partook of a light repast, and
then ordered that a donkey be made ready to convey me to my odd
It was nearly dark when I reached the Sphinx, whose mysterious
features were now well veiled in riddling shadows, adding life-likeness
to the expression of immutable wisdom which I had before observed in
them. No one, who has seen the Sphinx at this hour, can doubt that
it holds a most profound secret. I did not doubt, at that moment, that
the Sphinx knew everything in earthly history.
I cannot describe the sensations I felt as I curled myself up in my
blanket at the foot of that weird creature-for the Sphinx seemed
almost alive to me then-and strangely enough, I wondered where my
classmates were. Then I watched the darkness creeping toward me
over the gray, brown sands. I saw the stars come out, one by one,
then the full moon rose, and soon, wearied from my afternoon's exer-
tions, I fell asleep.
I do not know how long a time elapsed, I only know the moon was
high in air, when I was awakened by the "thong, thong," of caravan
bells, and saw a long train of camels passing by from the desert into
I was about to lie down again when I was suddenly arrested in my
action by perceiving near me, in the air, a pale, white light, which
steadily brightened as I sat rigid and motionless watching it. Then,
as it flared up into a burst of radiance, it appeared to me as a beam
of sunlight streaming through an open window, and illuminating the
fair features of a saintly blue-eyed girl, whose cheer and gentle touch
comforts and soothes the suffering. A soft smile lights the face of this
angel of mercy who is Elizabeth Alderton.
This vision pales, then the light brightens into the glow from a
lamp, lighting a newspaper which is spread out upon the table. Great
headlines announce the Presidential nominees, and among the names,
is that of Robert Allardyce.
A group of hungry, dirty children crowd around a young lady
whose kindly face and sweet smile seem to enchant them. She is telling
them lovely stories and giving them things to eat. These London slum
children have never loved anyone more than they love this kind
American girl, Ruth Appleby.
A woman, in white cap and dress, walks through the Foreign
Immigration Halls. She goes from one group of people to another,
everywhere giving cheer, and to the little ones, candy and cakes. She is
Ruth Avery, interpreter of languages at Ellis Island.
Flooded with sunlight is an old-fashioned garden, hedge inclosed,
where roses and four-o'clocks blow, and sweet pinks and blue forget-
me-nots are tucked away in corners. The prim maiden who has been
kneeling beside a small rosebush, throws off her quaint pink sunbonnet
and rises, as the manager of a noted seed house comes to inspect the
superior plants cultivated by Hazel Baskin.
In a large, well-lighted schoolroom many typewriters are busily
clicking. The noise stops and the students look up as their teacher,
Hazel Beach, begins to speak.
At the show are all kinds of dogs, big shaggy fellows with droop-
ing ears, sleek, close-haired ones, keen bulldogs with haughty air, all
sit attentively watching a trim young woman who has just stopped
playing with a bunch of frisking, fuzzy puppies. As she approaches
him, the great, white Russian wolfhound leaps up and eagerly shakes
hands with Nellie Blackstone, the girl whose friendship with these
pets has led to her being made president of the Hyset Kennel Klub.
In a cozy kitchen, savory with steaming pudding and delectable
viands, in preparation for the evening meal, stands Lauretta Bluem,
in a blue gingham apron. The becoming flush on her cheeks deepens
at the entrance of a tall young man, in shell-rimmed glassesg and she
hastens her preparations as he tells her that he must soon return to
the office for evening work.
The courtroom is growing uneasy at the length of the debate, and
at the hopelessness of the poor man's case, when Elma Bradford begins
her plea. In a very short time she establishes proof that this poverty-
stricken man is in the right. The decision is made in favor of her client,
and Elma is happy because she is satisfied that her efforts to bring
justice into the courts have not been altogether in vain.
Up the steps and between the great fluted columns of the doorway
walks a tall, gray-haired man who retains the erect and dignified
bearing of his youth. He is Harry Burrows, president of the Federal
Reserve system of Banks.
All heads are bent in attention upon the boxers in the ring below.
The lights shine down fiercely, and with a sudden turn of his hand,
Maurice Brown deals a clever blow which ends the match in his favor.
A richly dressed woman appears, wearing about her shoulders,
furs of unsurpassed beauty. Luxurious, warm-looking, comfortable,
she is confronted by the customs officer, Walter Bohnoff, who gruffly
demands duty for the furs she is wearing. After much evasiveness
and complaint, Sylvia Kaiser pays the exorbitant price demanded.
A busy factory, humming with smoothly-running machinery, is
teeming with active workers, contented under the efficient management
of Bessie Close.
The ruddy glow from an open fireplace illumines the tapestried
walls and heavily carpeted floor of a spacious room, and plays upon
the faces of the young men who sit about in deep-cushioned chairs
smoking and merrily conversing, and then Hickers upon the elks' head
on the wall, lights the old pennant above which bears the inscription
"Bachelors' Club," and shines upon the face of the host, disclosing him
as Arthur Curran.
A white light illuminates a screen upon which is flashed the face
of a beautiful woman whose deep, soulfull eyes surpass those of
Theda Bara in their lustrous splendor. Immediately this girl is
chosen as a star. Her name is asked. The answer is, "Ethel Curran."
In a large hall, a lecturer is to speak before an assembly of pro-
fessors and teachers-the literary department of a noted college. In
this audience is Harry Gnatowske who has gained wide recognition
through his stories. He recognizes the white-haired woman who steps
upon the platform, as Margaret Curtis, one of his former classmates,
now a titled doctor whose clear reasoning and literary tendencies have
gained for her wide renown among the scholars and intellect of the

Lydia accepts as she has much sympathy for her old school mate,
Edward Cherry, who is suffering from a severe attack of Spring fever.
The rays of light from a dim oil lamp steal through the chinks of
a little hut that sits deep in a dense forest. Within is Claude Clark,
working out a powerful experiment which will prove to be of great
value to the world of Physics.
Along a woodland path mottled with sunlight, walks a young
woman dressed in khaki suit, low-heeled, strongly-built shoes, and
brown corduroy tam o'shanter. Altogether she presents a very pic-
turesque figure with her canvas and brushes on her arm. She is Helen
Claflin, painter of woodland scenery. J
An old, wizen-faced man rides along the dusty road in a creaking,
worn-out vehicle drawn by a lanky horse. A case of medicine falls out
of the back of the carriage. The occupant at once gets out to replace
it, and as he stoops to pick up the case, the wind snatches his tall
stove-pipe hat and rolls it rapidly down the pike. After a mad chase
and a final rescue, he returns, flushhed and triumphant, climbs into the
buggy, jerks the reirs, and rumbles on his way. He is Carl Compton,
who is devoting his life to the service of suffering horses in a country

as soon as the firemen, and her keen eyes miss nothing. With a small
kodak she snaps several of the most thrilling scenesg then, as the fire
is checked and the flames are being extinguished, she walks around
gathering details for tomorrow's issue-for Leona is a reporter on
the daily paper.
A large cigar store, much frequented by men who desire the best,
appears. Behind the desk, looking over his accounts, is Bishop Davis,

upon a man who sits at his desk, thoughtfully composing a newspaper
editorial. Frequently he runs his fingers through his rumpled hair,
which hangs in two dark points over his eyes, that stare fixedly upon
the paper before him. He is Leslie Eynon, editor of the Blinkes-

On a busy corner of Madison Avenue, New York, are automobiles
and crowded cars, and drivers impatient to be moving, while a woman
traffic officer stands, quickly and efficiently directing the throngs by her
signals. She is Carol Redmond, and the chauffeur, who, cool and

In the tonneau of the car he drives, reposes a young man whose easy
bearing and smart-cut clothes distinguish him as one of New York's
exclusive set. He is Orville Gile.
The stage is darkened and the spotlight plays upon a graceful
figure that whisks out in filmy pink. Each delicate movement of this
graceful flitting dancer, Leota Goodrow, fascinates and attracts.
The light falls upon the small figure of an office girl. Her face

A tall man appears, in corduroys and fur cap, wading through
the snow. Two large dogs follow at his heels. He walks along until he
reaches a small cabin around which great logs are stacked in orderly
piles. The winds sigh through the great pine forest as, calling his dogs,
the man enters and begins preparations for his solitary meal. He is
James Hay, who has taken up a valuable claim in Northwestern Canada.
A man, who seems to be in great haste, is endeavoring to deliver

The tropic sun beats fiercely down upon an automobile traversing
a smooth macadam road in Venezuela. Now the way leads over
stretches of heated plain, now through a vast forest, and again over
great bridges, firmly built to withstand the rushing torrents, swollen by
the heavy rains. This way has been constructed by a band of men,
who were stung by insects, attacked by serpents, tormented by the heat,
and then, when nearing desperation were led on to success by the in-
domitable will, the stern resolution, and the great courage of their
leader, Roscoe Hefron.
In a prosperous furniture store, a salesman is demonstrating a
talking machine of the latest and most elegant period design. The
customer hesitates, undecided as to whether he wishes to buy or not.
Then the salesman mentions the fact that the machine was designed
by John Herzog. The customer hesitates no longer, for it is well known
that John Herzog designs for only the best machines, and that his
patterns are sought by the most fastidious persons.
The sunlight beams upon the green lawn and the low sloping roof
of a little, brown, rose-trellised cottage. The man entering the gateway
is greeted by a rosy, pretty young woman, followed by a dozen beautiful
cats. As she picks up a lovely Angora kitten, showing it to her husband
and commenting upon its condition, her dimpled smile shows that she
is Olive Hymans. The man is none other than Chick Kehren, and the
cats are pets of Hollywood actresses who have left them in Olive's care.

out upon the stage, accompanied by a startling blare from the saxo-
phones. The darky is joined in his capers by his friend, "Ebenezer,"
who accents each witty remark by a great roll of his eyeballs. The
audience is held in an uproar. But at length, when Ebenezer opens his
mouth to sing a darky lullaby, his clear, flute-like tenor voice fills his
listeners with thrills of delight and surprise. He is called back again
and again, and when at last this act is over, and, in the dressing room,
these minstrels remove the burnt-cork makeup, the faces disclosed are
those of Winifred Lange and Richard Rankin.

Behind a large oaken desk in an office sits Lena Pankonin, attired
in a modish skirt and blouse, with her hair neatly dressed in the newest

steps in the icy surface. At last, the hazardous ascent accomplished,
they pause on the summit to gaze in profound admiration at the view

backward to catch one last glimpse of the peaks, rosy-tinted and
glorious with the sunset.

Nor savants brimming o'er with knowledge,

Of midnight, winking lucubrationg
We listened patient, and we toiled
To get a decent education.
How well we fared, let teachers tell,
Those tireless, tearful inculcatorsg
They set the pace that we essayed,
Happy to be their imitators.
Now that the end's in sight, and we,
Mid hectic hope and expectation,
A backward glance cast to the bench,
Where oft we sat in trepidation.
Strange feelings, mixed and fitful stir
Our hearts to deepest consternation
When turning o'er the 'fmight have been
Of study, stern, and concentration.
Well, well, 'tis done! the die is cast,
The future waits our exploration,
The teacher's leaven yet may work,
A wide and needed reformation.
Good-bye dear hearts-not au revoir-
The trail turns to the last semester,
Life's face we see at last is stern,
Farewell the fool and ancient jester.

Arthur Hill-45 Owosso-O
Wow, did you see Owosso get white washed? Well I guess!
45-0 some score eh? "Irish", you sure deserve the credit for evening
up old scores and, boys, we present to you with all respect due to
worthy athletes, a diamond studded stomach pump. For a football
game, it was a fine walking contest.
Arthur Hill-0 Detroit Eastern-0
Safe all around and still going strong towards State champion-
ship goal. Some very bad breaks were all that kept our bunch
from scoring. Hart missed a pass upon Detroit's 5 yard line which, if
he had been able to make connections, would have been good for six
points. Detroit may count herself lucky for emerging from the
Arthur Hill-7 Grand Rapids-7
Hurray, our slate's still clean! Jove, but it was a tight squeeze.
No picnic this, but football, man, football. Our gang hung up their
tally in the second quarter. Grand Rapids did not even the score
until the last quarter. All credit due you, boys, we're still striving
to gain the title of State Champs.
Lansing-7 Arthur Hill-9
Lansing's delegation traveled to Saginaw firmly believeing that
they would return chanting "Veni, vidi, vici," but to their distress,
were defeated by Ramsey's men 9-7. Playing wonderful football,
and taking advantage of all breaks, our fellows surprised everyone
by defeating Lansing. This was the first time in a period of three
years that Lansing had undergone this experience. Every man
played his best, outplaying the champs all the way. Joe Friskie can-
not receive too much credit, for it was his dropkick from the 35 yard
line, in the last minute of play, that turned a 7-6 defeat into a 9-7
victory. The game was a great punting duel in which Joe was the
master of Nellor and Capt. Richards of Lansing. Our team kicked
off and Lansing, failing to make their gains by end runs, punted the
ball to safety. Upon our fourth down, with less than a yard to go,
Cox failed to gain at center, and Lansing took the ball on our 45 yard
line. Four smashes by Neller, Richards and Rob made downs and
put the ball on our 21 yard line. Then followed a pass, Richards to
Kipke, Kipke going over for the first score of the game. Neller
kicked goal. At the beginning of the second quarter, one of Joe's
punts put the ball on Lansing's 5 yard line. Neller's punt from behind
his goal line was blocked by Scheib. Speakerman recovered on the
8 yard line, and Grube carried the ball over for a touchdown. Friske's
kick for goal was blocked. Early in the second half, Scheib fell on
a Lansing muff. Ochsenkehl and Friskie made it first down on
Lansing's 24 yard line. Two line plunges and a pass placed the ball on
Lansing's 12 yard line. Friske attempted a dropkick which was
blocked. In the last quarter, Fitzpatrick fumbled a punt and Hart,
diving 10 feet through the air, recovered on Lansing's 25 yard line.
Friske tried his second drop-kick which went low. Richards kicked
out, and Ochsenkehl, knowing that his time was short, started to
forward pass. Two were grounded, and then Lansing made her fatal
mistake. She failed to play safe and laid down a barrage of forward
passes. "Bunny" snared one of these passes and carried it for a 22
yard gain. This placed the ball on Lansing's 28 yard line and with
one minute to play, Joe Friske dropped back to the 35 yard line pre-
paratory to making his sensational dropkick, and with cool deliber-
ation booted the ball squarely between Lansing's goal-posts. This
gave our boys the lead 9-7, and Lansing was unable to overtake them
throughout the remainder of the game.
Arthur Hill-7 Bay City Eastern-7
Bay City managed to come through with a tie score. It looked
very much as if our champs had been affected by their preceding
victory and were lucky to awake in time to save themselves from being
defeated by a weaker and less formidable team than others that we
had succeeded in trouncing. Well, well, the final blow had yet
Arthur Hill-43 Port Huron-0
Arthur Hill-28 Bay City-7
We had very little trouble in defeating either of these teams,
being bothered only by one individual on each team, MacDonal of Bay
City, and Philips of Port Huron.
Detroit Central-7 Arthur 'Hill-0
Alas, that we should lose one so dear. He was a likely chap, was
our friend State Champ. And to think of how we had nourished and
fostered him until manhood only to have him depart when he was most
needful. Come, let Mr. Hoge strike up the funeral march and all ye
faithful, break out in your funeral duds and prepare to join the proces-
sion, for upon this day we lay at rest, in the vast graveyard of Detroit,
our hope, our light, our very soul, and our beloved companion, State
Champ. Why so doleful? He is not dead. He will be resurrected
some time in September of the year 1921.
Arthur Hill-0 Saginaw-0
The annual Thanksgiving Day game ended in another tie. This
is the fourth tie in five years. The game was well played throughout
with the exception that both teams played too close football, and were
afraid to "open up." Saginaw outplayed our fellows for a part of
the first quarter, but from then on, the game was entirely in our favor.
Our fellows showed better condition and better team work than
Saginaw High. The game was slowed up considerably by the con-
dition of the field which was very muddy and slippery. The game in
plays was as follows:
First Quarter 1
Roseberry kicked of to Friske who returned the ball 15 yards
to the 30 yard line. Friske made 3 and 2 and punted outside on
Saginaw's 42 yard line. Brackenbury and Spence made 5 and Rose-
berry punted outside on Arthur Hill's 23 yard line. Cox twice and
Friske made 8 and Friske punted to Saginaw's 42 yard line. Brown,
Brackenbury and Gillingham made first down on Arthur Hill's 48.
Brackenbury twice and Brown made 6 and Roseberry punted to
Arthur Hill's 9 yard line. Friske punted to his own 30. Brackenbury
and Richards made one and Brackenbury went around end for 12.
Gillingham, Spence and Brackenbury made 5 and Roseberry's drop-
kick went wide. Cox in two tries made three and Friske punted to
midield. Richards, Brackenbury and Gillingham made 6, and after
a bad pass by Sommers, Roseberry was downed on his 45 yard line.
Cox made one and Friske 10 on a fake pass. Grube went outside and
Spence intercepted Friske's pass on his own 8 yard line. Brackenbury
made two and Roseberry punted to Saginaw's 40, Kehren returning 13
yards. Grube went outside as the quarter ended.
Cox and Grube made one and Houska intercepted Friske's pass
and returned it to Saginaw's 32. Brackenbury, Gillingham and Brack-
enbury made 8 and Roseberry punted to Kehren who returned 14 yards
to his own 44 yard line. Cox, Friske and Cox made 5 and Friske punted
to Brackenbury. He signaled for a fair catch and was tackled, Arthur

BOYS' BASKETBALL TEAM
Arthur Hill-28 Owosso-18
Arthur Hill began its valley schedule by trimming Owosso 28-18.
Up until this time our team had played excellent basketball, and a vic-
tory was looked for, although Owosso had boasted of an equally good
team. Owosso failed to make good her boast, showing very little
basketball form throughout the evening. Our team played together
like a well regulated machine, and, at this stage, showed signs of
bidding for valley honors. Grube led our attack with five baskets while
Scheib and Friske spoiled a large percentage of Owosso's trys at the
Mt. Pleasant-13 Arthur Hill-14
Arthur Hill won a closely contested game from Mt. Pleasant by a
score of 14-13. The work of our team showed to better advantage
than that of the visitors when it came to general playing ability, but
they had to fight from start to tinish to maintain the lead. Paul Hackett
was missed very much in this game.
Saginaw--17 Arthur Hill-18
Arthur Hill, by winning a one point victory from Saginaw High,
took the lead in the valley race. The game was fiercely contested
throughout, and was exceedingly exciting during the last few minutes
of play. Saginaw looped the first basket of the game but Arthur Hill,
aided by the pretty dribbling and fine basket shooting of Hackett and
Friske, soon had the score 12-2 in our favor. Saginaw came back strong
and brought their total to seven, where it remained until the close of
the first half. At the beginning of the second half, Saginaw succeeded
in securing a two-point lead, but baskets by Grube and Davis soon
placed our team in the lead 16-14. Saginaw hooked a free throw
while Grube, in way of retaliating, scored from the floor. This was
followed by a field basket for Saginaw. During the last few minutes
of play, both teams were held scoreless, and the game ended with our
team leading 18-17.
Bay City Eastern-21 Arthur Hill-23
In one of the most thrilling games ever played in Bay City, Arthur
Hill won a victory from B. C. E. in the last few minutes of play when
Joe Friske caged a basket from the center of the floor. Our gang got
away to a fine start, and were leading 10-5 at the end of the first half.
In the second half, Dystant, of Bay City, shot four baskets in rapid suc-
cession which placed Eastern in the lead 13-10. From here, the lead
see-sawed back and forth between the two teams until almost the close
of the game, when the score was tied 21-21. At this time Friske made
his sensational basket which gave our team a 23-21 point victory.
Friske and Davis showed up to be real stars in this game while Dystant,
of Bay City, never will be forgotten by our guards.
Bad Axe-14 Arthur Hill-11
Arthur Hill received the first defeat of the season at the hands
of Bad Axe. The game was one of the most bitterly fought of the
season and the playing of both teams pleased the spectators very
much, for it surely was real basketball. Arthur Hill was leading 5-4
at the end of the first half but towards the close of the game, Bad Axe
overtook our boys and won 14-11.
Bay City Western-21 Arthur Hill-26
By winning this game by a 21-26 score, Bay City Westernis hopes
for valley championship were shattered. Arthur Hill showed the best
form of the season, and after gaining the lead in the first 15 minutes
of play managed to keep it throughout the remainder of the game.
Hackett's dribbling and long basket shooting was the feature of the
game while Scheib and Gile again showed wonderful work as guards.
This game just about put the valley championship on ice for Arthur
Hill, for all but one of their remaining valley games was on their own
floor which, we might say, gave them a little advantage over opposing
Owosso-13 Arthur Hill-32
Arthur Hill again defeated Owosso in a very one-sided game.
Owosso at no time threatened to win the game, and our team scored
at will. Hackett and Scheib were bright stars in this game. Scheib's
guarding could not have been better while Hackett's passing, dribbling,
and shooting was the sensation of the evening.
Bad Axe-13 Arthur Hill-20
Arthur Hill avenged the defeat administered by Bad Axe in the
early part of the season by defeating them at Pioneer Hall 20-13. Bad
Axe led the scoring during the first part of the game, but was soon
left behind and the half ended with the score 10-7 in our favor. At
the beginning of the second half Bad Axe again received a jumping
start and were soon leading 10-13. At this point, Gile and Scheib
braced and no more baskets were made by the Bad Axe five. During
this time, Currott, Hackett, and Davis, constituting our scoring machine,
made enough baskets to win the game 20-13.
Mt. Pleasant Indian Teck.-15 Arthur Hill-18
The Mt. Pleasant Indians came here with the expectation of de-
feating our gang, but their bubble burst and left them to carry home
the spoils of the conquered. It seemed that by this time our team had
established a habit for winning and the game ended in the same man-
ner as the preceding games, our team leading at the close of the game.
c Bay City Eastern-9 Arthur Hill-18
Arthur Hill again succeeded in dragging the colors of Bay City
Eastern in the dirt by defeating them in a hard fought, but clean cut
and fast game. Hackett and Davis came through with the majority
of the baskets while the old reliables, Scheib and Gile were on the job
as usual, playing a sure and steady defensive game which kept Eastern
from securing the lead. This was Arthur Hill's fifth consecutive valley
Manistee-30 Arthur Hill-12
The team weakened by the absence of Hackett and Gile, was badly
defeated by Manistee, the final score being 30-12. Manistee showed
some very classy basketball and we will have to admit that they played
rings around our bunch who at no time, during the game, threatened
to win. Manistee secured the lead in the first half by a score of 18-7,
and succeeded in piling up the remainder during the last half. The
efforts of our team to stop this onrush were futile.
Port Huron-19 Arthur Hill-18
Our team was on the tail end of the score at the end of the game
with Port Huron. The game was closely and hotly contested through-
out. Port Huron had a wonderful offensive which our boys found
trouble in stopping until the second half of the game. Although we
were defeated, the score was so close, that it showed that both teams
were very evenly matched. Neither team can say that their playing
excelled that of the other.
Saginaw-15 Arthur Hill-19
Saginaw received its second defeat from Arthur Hill at Pioneer
Hall. This victory, over Saginaw, gave Arthur Hill the valley champ-
ionship in basketball. Saginaw obtained the lead in the first half which
ended IO-6. At the beginning of the second half our team started out
with a determined effort and overtook Saginaw's lead in a very few
minutes and never again did they lose it. Our team completely out-
played Saginaw in every department of the game. Saginaw seemed
lost before our advances, and were stopped dead in their tracks by the
excellent guarding of our men. Saginaw fought gamely throughout the
game but were outclassed by the passing and guarding of our valley
Bay City Western-2 Arthur Hill-0
Fight, fight, nigger and a white,
Dynamite, out of sight.
On account of poor otliciating, the last valley game of the season
ended in a fight amongst both players and spectators. The crowd
marched right out onto the floor and Mr. Allen thought it best to take
the team off the floor and forfeit to Bay City.
Mt. Pleasant Tournament.
Arthur Hill-9 Alma-13
No golden banner and cup of silver was brought back by our team
from the Mt. Pleasant Tournament, but the tale of a jolly good time and
a hard earned rest. Our gang travelled to Mt. Pleasant to take part
in the district tournament. They were defeated by Alma High School
in the first tournament game, this eliminating them from further par-

Girls Basketball Team

above picture and notice the sturdiness of these lassies. Don't they look
We had several trimmings, and one team walked away with us
entirely. Although we were not always victorious, our trips were often
made a real pleasure to us. At Owosso, each girl was taken to a
private home and royally entertained. At Vassar, we found three
games scheduled, with ours as the "big" one. After lots of eats, the
surprise came: We had to play first. Well, we did our best, but lost
Talk about being stage struck! That's what happened to us the
night we played Saginaw and as a result Saginaw won out. In the re-
turn game we had recovered from this difliculty. We kept right up with
them until the end of the third quarter. In the last quarter they got
GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM
ahead and stayed there until the whistle blew. During the rest of the
season we won every game, although we had to fight desperately for
some of them. When we did trim our opponents, we surely made a
good job of it, not only because we fought every minute, but also be-
cause of the loyalty of the girls. They came to every practice, stuck
and worked together like regular fighters. They certainly deserve
credit for the seas0n's work.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL CARNIVAL
"You didn't go to the Girls' Basketball Carnival! Why, dearie,
you missed half of your life, but I'll try to tell you about it."
"Well, to start with, "Qld Pioneer" looked like a regular fair
with the cleverest booths on two sides of it. And the cake, candy,
and ice cream sandwiches-oh bother-how we all ate!"
"Just eat! Well I should say not. You haven't heard the half
of it yet. The center of the hall was roped off for dancing, and with
the peppy music furnished by Dona Donelly, Rally Burrows, and Har-
old Olson, you just couldn't help wanting to dance."
"Wait a minute, that isn't all either, they had the slickest
mounted police you ever saw. What for? Why they "got" the
cheek-to-cheek dancers, and the other law violators, and dragged
them up on the stage where they were lined by a terribly harsh
"And, my dear, you should have had your future read by the
fortune teller. It was great. Regular stuff!"
"They also had games of chance. There was a fish pond, and
chances were sold on boxes of candy."
"Well, I guess I've told you nearly everything and I know
you're sorry that you weren't there, because, all in all, it was a great
success. The profits that amounted to 215125 are going to be used
to buy sweaters for the girls on the team." '
The first All Valley Swimming Meet was staged at the Y. M. C. A.
Tank. Both Bay City and Saginaw High Schools entered teams. Arthur
Hill got the credit of winning the first CUP by piling up a score of more
than twice that of the others put together. Hay, Heffron, Hart CCapt.J,
Wilkinson, and Maynard did the "dirty" work. All but Maynard took
a first place and received a medal. Our friend Allen told us he would
"Rig" up some kind of a letter for us if we won the meet, so we all
worked hard and won a letter. Making such a good start, we hope
that swimming will become an active sport, and that Arthur Hill will
take the Cup next year without the aid of Hay, Wilkinson, and Heffron.

The first party of the year was given by the Freshmen at Pioneer
Hall, December 4. The large crowd included many upper classmen as
well as Freshmen and everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time.
Maybe it was because refreshments were served. Of course, the regular
dancing hours 8 130 to 11 o'clock were observed because the Freshmen
had to get to bed early. Good luck, next year, Freshmen, maybe they
will give you an extra hour of dancing.
The annual Football Hop given by the team at the Canoe Club, was
a howling success as it always is. The decorations were especially
attractive. The orchestra was composed of some of the finest talent
that could be secured, and all in all, every one succeeded in having
a profitable evening of amusement. That the party was a success was
made noticeable when, shortly after the Hop, the "boys" went prome-
nading about the halls with large golden letters mounted upon a surface
of shining blue.
The Juniors were afraid they were going to be cheated out of their
party at first but that would have been impossible because the Junior
Hop was this year, as in former years, the crowning event of the social
season. Wicker furniture helped to make Pioneer Hall look more
comfortable and inviting, and the refreshments made a hit with every-
one. The chaperons for the party were Mr. and Mrs. Dirsch and
Mr. and Mrs. Allen.
Senior Party g
The Senior Party, from all reports, was quite the function. Every
body was there and had a good time. It was the last opportunity the
Seniors would have to get together before graduating, so everybody
went. Possibly one reason for its success was the fact that it was
necessary for outsiders to present an invitation at the door before being
admitted. This made the party much more exclusive and everybody
wanted to go. A delightful program was planned for the people who
didn't dance. The class colors, blue and white, were used effectively
for decorations. The effect was heightened by the use of a large '21
pin illuminated with blue and white bulbs which hung at the front of
the dance hall. Refreshments were served and an hour more dancing
was allowed because of the fact that the music arrived late. It is hinted
that the music was told to come late so that we could dance longer.
We made over fifty dollars on this party so it was a success financially
as well as socially.

This year the Criterion has been managed under an entirely
different plan from that of previous years. Last year, it was run very
successfully as a paper owned by a few individuals, but it did not fully
represent the school. i
Then the students woke up, and decided that they wanted a genu-
ine school magazine. A board of control was elected, and this board
chose the members of the stai. It was also decided that the Criterion
should be published every two months.
The Literary Department showed much improvement and con-
tained a wider variety of material than has ever been published.
One of the new departments, which was added, was the Exchange.
This department has helped to make the Criterion better known in
other schools, while this school has become acquainted with thevpapers
of several other schools.
The jokes also were cleverly written, in fact, the Criterion con-
tained more than any of its exchanges.
The students seemed very well satisfied with each issue, and they
took a more active interest in the paper than ever before.

success is due to the three loyal members, one of whom is Albertine

The Junior Hop was given at Pioneer Hall, February fifteenth, and
everyone had an excellent time.
No one can dispute the fact that the Junior Play, "The Big Idea,"

At the first meeting of the Girls' Club the following officers
Eleanor Johnson ...................... President
Sadie Doerfner ................... Vice-President
Donna Donnelly ...................... Secretary
Mildred Reins ........................ Treasurer
The Girls' Club, this year, has been a wonderful success. It seems
as if every girl, whether an old or new member, has been working for
the good of her club. There is one, and only one, thing, however, to
which the girls have not given a sufficient amount of attentiong that is
the "Honor System." It is believed that more girls could have "tried
out" for the various "honors" than did, because, really, the small tasks
are verypeasy to do. But let us be optimistic and hope that next year
the "Honor System" will be one of the first successes of the club.
The girls have given a series of successful parties, and have also
held several meetings this year. The most successful party is believed
to have been the annual "dress-up" party. Everyone was dressed in
either pretty or funny costumesg prizes going to Jean Craig Smith for
the prettiest costume, and to Winifred Spencer for the funniest. A barn
dance Was given by several typically dressed dancers, and they were
accompanied by an orchestra of "old times."
The last party, which is to be held in May, is expected to be the
very best. Every boy in high school is to be invited. This is something
unusual as the boys can never behold the Girls' Club parties, except
through the Windows of Pioneer Hall. We hope to have a big attend-
ance at this party as a splendid time is being planned.
Just a Word in regard to our President, Eleanor Johnson: Eleanor
has certainly made the club '6hurn," so to speak. It has been every bit
as "peppy" as it Was last year. But the President could not have been
so successful Without the help of all the girls who attended or took part
in the parties.
At this time We Wish to thank every girl for what she has done
for the good of the club, Whether officer or member. We hope that
every girl, in years to come, Will recall the happy times which she has
had in the Girls' Club of '21,
D. DONNELLY, Secretary.

A Girls' Glee Club of twenty members-all singers of ability-is
a club Worthy of its popularity in Arthur Hill High School.
The girls have been too busy singing for outside affairs to make
many appearances at Chapel, but on both occasions at which they sang,
their selections were much enjoyed.
Their biggest achievement this year has been singing "By Baby-
lon's Wave," a highly dramatic and difficult number by Gounod.
Seven of the girls have been chosen to represent the club at the
State Musical Contest. '

Senior Class Notes
Not being of a ranting turn of mind as most Seniors are inclined
to be, but of a cautious, watchful, and penetrating nature, We, the
members of the Class of '21 make no claim to pomp or ceremony, but
pass that by as being something that kings alone can enjoy. So, when
we sailed into port and dropped anchor as members of the Senior Class
of 1921, we sought not to amaze and beguile the other members of our
barracks by publishing a list of projects that we intended to put into
practice, but set about to organize and become fitted to equal the
pace set by our predecessors.
We made excellent use of our time, and by the seventeenth of
September, ha d elected the finest group of officers that ever under-
took to pilot the flagship of any fleet through the boisterous seas of edu-
cation. Here they are, folks. Remember them always as worthy repre-
sentatives of the Class of '21,
Bessie Close ......... ........ P resident
Duane Chamberlain .... .... V ice-President
Herbert Wettlaufer .... - ...... Treasurer
Robert Allardyce ..................... Secretary
Having now organized our executive forces, we turned our
thoughts to moneyed matters and succeeded in extracting from each
member of our class, a promise to pay, to the treasurer of the class, the
sum of two dollars. Now that we had some money, the question was,
what would we do with it? Now isn't that a foolish question to ask a
Senior? Well, just to start the ball a rolling, and just to see how fast
we could get rid of it, we appointed the Seniors who were to edit the
Legenda. The Legenda, you know, is the paper in which all the note-
worthy happenings and history-making events that occur during our
stay in Arthur Hill are recorded, so that they might be referred to as a
guide by the aspiring and worshipping members of the lower classes.
Now, having succeeded in expending all the money that awe had
been fortunate enough to procure, we had to devise a plan whereby we
could make money. This necessitated the appointing of a committee
to select a play, so upon Sept. 27, 1920, we launched our first money-
making project by selecting a group of live Seniors who were delegated
to choose a play which would be suitable for public presentation. This
committee labored incessantly to procure a play that would approach
somewhere within the realms of novelty, but as time wore on, and the
much sought for play failed to make its appearance, the play committee
had to be contented with one of the very first plays that had been con-
sidered and so this year, we Seniors presented "The Man on the Box," a
rollicking comedy in three acts.
Somebody page the fellow who invented mottos, at least, the one
who wrote the motto under which we have been promenading. Just
think of it! We, the Seniors of the Class of '21 took an oath upon the
high altar of education that from the third day of January, nineeen
hundred and twenty-one, we would be square to everyone we met, be
he friend or foe, Freshman or Junior, said oath to be considered binding

goal. Well, it was as a New Year's resolution, made to be broken.
Jove, did you go to our party? Oh, boy, wasn't it great to walk
about under that nifty arrangement of blue and white streamers and
just gloat upon that fine musical program! But that is nothing compared
to what really took place, for we actually made money and so our second
money-making project proved to be successful. We wish you as good
luck, friend Juniors, for you know, as we understand it, last year's
Seniors. were not quite so successful as we were.

The year 1920-21 has been a very eventful and successful one for
the Mathematical Club. The Club held its first meeting of the year on
October 19, 1920. At this meeting, ofiicers were elected for the first
semester. We chose for our President, Ruth Avery, Vice-President,
Isla Jones, Secretary and Treasurer, Martin Martzowka.
With this body of competent officers, President Avery began her
term by appointing a Social and Program Committee. At the opening
meeting Miss Vanderhoof, Mr. Rickerman, and a few other faculty
members, were the guests of the Club. The speaker of the evening
was Mr. Boyd, one of Saginaw's prominent surveyors.
The second meeting was held at this High School on November
9, 1920. At this time, the program committee presented the program
which they had prepared. The program was very interesting and was
The third meeting was held November 30, 1920. The ready
response of the members to our requests for music was a source of en-
joyment. Several good musicians gave us enjoyable additions to the
On Monday evening of December 20th a Christmas entertainment
was given in Pioneer Hall. A splendid and amusing program was given
through the efforts of our members. Our program consisted of several
short playlets and recitations, and at the close of it Santa Claus dis-
tributed gifts to all of us.
Our next meeting was held March 8, 1921. At this meeting, Mr.
Humes of the Y. M. C. A. spoke on a very interesting subject which
he entitled "Keep Agoingf' Immediately after this talk, we elected
our ofiicers for the second semester. Miss Ella Haines was elected
President, Frank McDermid, Vice-Presidentg Martin Martzowka, Sec-
retary and Treasurer.
I The Club has been a success throughout, and those who neglected
to Join or attend the meetings surely lost something which they will
never be able to regain.
The High School Orchestra entered upon its second year with a
membership nearly twice as large as that of last yearg and with this
increasing interest, and with the promise of seven new members next
year, the High School Orchestra will be one of our biggest and
The programs given this year have been greatly varied, from the
best music played before the various Parent-Teacher's Clubs, to the
popular programs given before the High School Assemblies, all have
been received with enthusiasm. The irst formal occasion was the
Junior Play at which time, the orchestra played an interesting program
before the curtain and between acts. On April sixteenth they furnished
the music for a successful All-School Party, playing for the dancing
from eight to ten.
On May twentieth the orchestra goes to compete in the State
Musical Contest at Mt. Pleasant, along with many older and more
experienced players, but they hope to bring back some recognition to
Arthur Hill. .The money for the trip was obtained from the proceeds of
the Concert given by the Orchestra and Girls' Glee Club on the evening
of May sixth.

The Spanish Club
The Spanish Club was organized about a month after the beginning
of school. The original membership consisted of twelve persons:
Mildred Reins Laura Hunt
Thelma Stearns Jennie Stanton
Margaret Stearns - Vera Cox
Etta Steilow Maria Kennedy
Orvila Steilow George Ames
Daisy Hollies Edward MacRae
A very enjoyable program was given just before Christmas.
Roscoe Hefron gave an interesting talk on his experiences in the navy.
Mr: Bradshaw gave an account of school sports in the Philippines.
Music was furnished by Miss Mary Rinehart, who played upon her
ukeleleg Rodolf Deveaux sang several French Christmas Carols, and
some of the first year members gave recitations and readings. The
program was concluded with dancing..
The first meeting after Christmas, three new members were taken
into the club:
Helen Hollies Thomas McQuade
Meetings have been suspended for the present time as the club
is working on a play which is to be given in May at Pioneer Hall. This
play is entitled "Uno de Ellos Debe Casarse" Cone of them must marryj.

Classical Club Notes
To onlookers, the Classical Club may have appeared to be a failure
this year, but to the members themselves, this has been a year of
interest and entertainment. This year's officers are:
Catherine Rice ........................ President
Russell. Bingham .................. Vice-President
Ada Giles .............-.............. Secretary
George Alderton ...................... Treasurer
Very little was accomplished the first semester, as the students
seemed to have lost all interest in the affairs of this club, and enthusiasm
could not be aroused. At last, a plan was devised which changed things
entirely. Membership was limited to the second, third, and fourth
year Latin students, and the meetings were held once a month during
the recitation hours.
Although little time has been given to social events, the meetings,
under the new system, have been very interesting. Myths and poems
in relation to the Aenead were discussed, While at another time, Greek
and Roman art was found to contain features of interest to present
During the latter part of the first semester, a lecture was given
at the high school by Professor Crittenden from the University of
Michigan. He spoke to a large and interested audience on the subject:
Old Greek and Roman Games.
We did not have time to give a play this year, but a party of
some kind Will probably be given to add a final touch to the

Class Poem T
How dear to our hearts is this Arthur Hill High School
When thoughts of our leaving presents it to view,
The old Pioneer, the halls and the classrooms,
And all our dear friends, some old and some new,
The blue and gold are the colors we cherish,
The all school parties now things of the past,
The teachers we loved and the lessons they taught us,
All make up fond memories which always shall last.
The session room too is a place we'll remember,
For often at noon when returned from our lunch,
We went there to make a pretence at study,
But really to laugh and talk with the bunch.
We talked of football, the girls and their "fellows",
And gazed at our books with innocent ways
For worries and pleasure, and pranks of our school life,
Will always remind us of happy school days.
And now comes the time that our lessons are ended,
And we must all leave, and our separate ways view,
S0 good-bye to teachers, and farewell to classmates
For now we all seek our life work anew.
Our motto-"Be Square"-we will always remember
And strive to live up to its standards so high
So now we must leave our dear Arthur Hill High
And we sigh, as we turn to wave it good-bye.

For The Benefit Of Our Debators
The achievements of the public speaking department this year
compare favorably with the accomplishments of previous years. But
these results are due not to the enthusiasm of the school as a Whole, but
rather to the hard work of a few. This lack of enthusiasm was noticed
both when the debating team was organized, and also when the
declamation contest was held.
Early in the year the University announced the subject for league
debates which was, "Resolved: That the adjustment of all disputes
between employers and employees should be made a part of the
administration of justice."
On December third, the debating team, composed of iHarry
Johnson, Albertine Schmidtke, and Elma Bradford, journeyed to Sebe-
waing for its first debate. It seemed for a time that the fates were
against us. We arrived at the station that morning and found that one
member of the team and our chaperon were late. The tardy member
arrived in time to leave with us, but we were chaperonless. Never-
theless, Miss Miller, our chaperon, arrived in time for the debate,
bringing good luck with her. We won by a two to one decision.
Cn December seventeenth, we were opposed by Cass City. Here
we lost by another two-to-one decision. The Cass City people certainly
deserved the victory, for they were represented by an excellent debating
team. Their debaters outpointed us when it came to refuting statements
but we far excelled them in delivery and constructive material.
In the next debate, Arthur Hill was assigned the opposite side of
the question. Up to this time, the team had supported the affirmative
side of the question. Due to the fact that no one had turned out to
support the negative side of the question, those people who had com-
posed the aflirmative team had to become converts and uphold the
agruments presented by a team favoring the negative side of the
On January twenty-first, we debated at Holly. We also lost this
debate, this time by an unanimous decision. We lost at Holly because
we made a statement that we could not support with convincing
February fourth, Flint High School was our opponent. The judges
rendered a two-to-one decision for Flint. This debate was the closest
of the season, and We do not begrudge Flint the victory.
Crosvvell, our next opponent, forfeited the debate to us and, hence,
the debate that we planned to have at home was not held.
Altogether, we consider that the season was a success. The team
deserves a lot of credit, for they spent a great deal of time and effort
upon the quesdon. Each indhddual did the very best posmble and
ought to have the thanks of the school.
In this connection a few Words should be said about oratory and
declamation. In the subdistrict contest held at East Tavvas, April 8th,
Arthur Hill Was not represented in oratory. Harry Johnston, a Fresh-
man of Arthur Hill, won second place in declamation. Our contestant
was seriously handicapped in this event. Just prior to April 8th we
had been having very Warm Weather, but on the day of the contest the
temperature suddenly dropped ten degrees. The cold wave was
accompanied by a heavy rain. Our contestant who was obliged to be
outin thksrann being entnely unprepared forit,xvas drenched and
becalne affhcted vuth a very severe cold on the very afternoon of the
event. Yet in spite of this serious setback he managed to Win
second place. Six contestants competed for honors in declamation.
The success this year in public speaking is commendable, but the
best that Arthur Hill is capable of doing, has not been accomplished.
Each and every student should feel that it is his duty to do all he can
to make a name for Arthur Hill in the activities of this department.

A Drama In One Act
Scene: House on moor, just outside the walls of Sing Sing Prison.
Father and son in room.
Father: Well, Jim, there is such a report about your moping
around the walls of Sing Sing, that I have come up here to see what
on earth ails you. What do you mean, anyhow, by building a house
out on this barren plain?
Son: Cin a melancholy mannerj I want to watch that prison.
Perhaps some one there is watching me.
F.: A fine occupation, indeed, for a young man. What on earth
brought you up here anyway? You have been acting like a criminal
who is afraid of being caught. Remember, I am your father and you
can talk to me confidentially. I don't want a son of mine to be
afraid of me.
S.: Do you know what the fifth Commandment is?
F.: The fifth Commandment! Well, now let me see-Well,
what in the deuce are you worrying about the fifth Commandment for?
kSif fturning asidej The fifth Commandment is-"Thou shalt
not i ."
S. Well, what has that got to do with your moping around Sing
S.: Did you ever break that Commandment?
F.: What! Break it? Now, see here, Jim-Calarm from prisonb
Good heavens, what's that?
S.: flooking out of window at innl Only some poor devil who has
tried to break the bonds of his slavery, and who's being hunted like an
animal. They will follow him with savage dogs and drag him back
again into that accursed fortress. .
F.: Look here, Jim, there is something wrong with you. That
prison is not a dungeon or fortress, but the greatest protection that
S.: Do you call it protection to shut up innocent men from the light
of day for a life-time?
F.: Innocent men be d-dl Those men in that prison are
criminals sent there by the law for their crimes.
S.: How do you know they are criminals? Oh, I stand here night
after night, and watch that vast building holding in its clutches God
knows how many innocent men, and it maddens me to be at liberty.
F.: Cin disgustj If you are so fond of that prison, why don't you
rent a room there?
S.: I may do that some day. I'm going to bed. CExit at ml.
F.: iFather strolls over to window, facing prison, and looks out
in silence for a moment. Walks over to table and sits down.J I wonder
if Jim can have done anything? "Thou shalt not kill," eh? Perhaps
he has plugged somebody in an affair of honor. Ha! Ha! Well,
murder more or less never bothered our family. I sowed my wild oats
when I was young, and I've always told Jim to do it, too. I never
regretted it yet, and I never expect to.
CNoise without at door.J
fConvict bursts in armed with revolver. The father seeing at once,
the striking resemblance between his son and the convict exclaimsb :
Convict: Don't Jim me! Who do you think I am? Throw up
F.: Aren't you my son?
Convict: Your son? Do I look like him? O, they are hunting me
like a wild beast, and I am innocent-innocent! Don't stand there!
Hide me somewhere do you understand?
F.: I-I-thought you were Jim, my son.
Convict: No. I never had a home like this. But I did have a

I were a criminal? I am innocent, and there is only one man in the

murder, and then, because I looked like him, I was arrested, convicted
and sentenced to spend the rest of my life like a wild beast in a cage.
But I am free now and I will stay free until I get my man. The world
is too small for him to escape me. Some day our paths will cross. Some

Con.: Get him? Get him! Listen! The other night, to keep
away madness, I took a pin, a pin, you understand, and shut my eyes
and flung it away in my cell. Then, in the pitch dark of midnight, I
got up to look for it. On my hands and knees I groped for it-groped
in that darkness until my head pounded and red blotches swam before
my eyes-groped until my fingers were torn and raw and bleeding, and
my heart was fit to burst and there was a wild ringing in my ears. But

The Junior class, after much deliberation, decided to give "The
Big Idea," a play within a play, by A. E. Thomas and Clayton Hamilton.
The play showed the hard work of an excellent cast. It deals
with the efforts of Dick Howard to free his father from a charge of
embezzling funds from the bank of which he is president.
Through the efforts of Elaine Foster and Bob Caswell, and also
aided by his own talent for drama writting, Dick Howard finally, after
a hard struggle, manages to sell his drama to Mr. Gilmore, a play-
wright, and so refunds the money his father had embezzled.
The play abounded in exciting situations. The interest of the
audience was keyed to he highest pitch when Mr. Howard, during an
interview with Dick, attempted to take his life. -A
W Humor, after intensive moments in the play, was furnished by the
belligerent Mr. Byrnes and the persistent little maid.
The cast was as follows: I

The Oflice Boy --- .... Edward Wilde
Elaine Foster --- .... Donna Donnelly
Mrs. Howard --- .......... Doris Jost
Elsie Howard ....,............. Helen Southgate

The play was presented at Pioneer Hall on January 28, 1921
under the direction of Hugo A. Richerman, head of the Public Speak-
ing Department of Arthur Hill High School.

Upon May 28, there was presented at the Pioneer Hall under the
auspices of the Spanish Club, a play entitled -Uno de Ellos Debe
Carsarse COne of Them Must Marryj. The play was delivered in the
Spanish dialect, the jist of the play being given in English before the
rise of the curtain. Espanolers were out to enjoy a tip-top Spanish
night and were Espanoling to their hearts content throughout the
The play deals with the love affair of two brothers. Upon his death
bed, their father had stated that one of them should marry. The
brothers decide to settle this question by means of a lottery. It falls
to the lot of Diego to become married and, as he is not proficient in the
art of love making, his brother Juan volunteers to assist him. Juan
proceeds to make love to Luisa, Deigo's choice, but he becomes so
ardent in his love making, that he goes so far as to pop-the-question.
Luisa, realizing that it is one chance in a life time, willfully accepts.

CAST OF "THE MAN ON THE BOX
The Senior Play
We had a hard time deciding, but finally presented, as the Senior
Play, "The Man On the Box" a three-act comedy by Grace Livingston
Furniss, fadopted from the novel of Harold McGrathJ.
According to the precedent set by the Class of '20, the play was
given at the Auditorium on Thursday evening, May 19. The play
made a tremendous hit with the audience, due to its many laughter
The plot, in brief, deals with the love affair between Lieutenant
Robert Worburton, disguised as a groom, and Miss Betty Annesley,
daughter of Colonel George Annesley. There is a rather important
sub-plot, however, which has to do with the intriguing schemes of one,
Count Karloff, a Russian diplomat, to secure from Col. Annesley, the
fortification plans of America. Col. Annesley, aided by Lt. Worburton
alias James Osborne, the groom, finally defeats the scheming Karloff.
The audience was stirred keenly by the scene between Col. Annes-
ley and Count Karloff. Although Col. Annesley tried with all his will
power to keep from becoming a traitor to his country by selling the
fortification plans, he believed he was forced to do so by "grinding
necessity" as Count Karloff put it. He was finally relieved from be-
coming a traitor by the final defeat of Karloff.
Much humor was introduced throughout the play after some of
these intensive scenes.
The cast was as follows:
Lieutenant Robert Worburton --Wolferd Ochsenkehl
Mr. Charles Henderson ............. Henry Kehren
Col. George Annesley ....... .-..... M organ Gile
Count Karloff ........ ....... R oscoe Hefron
Col. Frank Raleigh --- .... Duane Chamberlain

Miss Nancy Worburton -- .... Ida Osterbeck

After being with this grand body of students for four years, and
after studying their inclinations and wishes to an extent which this
writing will show, we will endeavor to portray the desires and hopes
of each one's heart.
Roscoe Hefron has long wished to become a missionary to China
and will, at last, after tireless efforts, persuade Irene Gelinas to become
his wife and co-worker in this office.
W. Ocksenkehl looks forward to the time when he will be a
minister in some little church, where all his parishoners will revere
It-is the earnest wish of Ann Powell and Harry Gnatkowski to
become basketball coaches in our new school.
The one desire of Lauretta Bluem is to be a celebrated artist. Her
studio is to situated at St. Charles. Ila Marble, her old school mate,
never will be happy until her editorials for the Literary Digest are
accepted and published regularly.
There are a few of our girls who desire to be a little different
than the rest of us. Elizabeth Alderton, Irene Gross, Otillia Zorn, and
lrma Grumwell have chosen the political field and will one day, no
doubt, be very popular as suffragettes.
Some classes haxe champions in one line, some in another: in
ours, however, we have Harry Burrows and Junior Rockwood who have
one heartfelt desire. It is to become expert boxers.
You will gasp for breath, it is certain, when you hear that our
schoolmates, Ruth Appleby, Elma Bradford, and Dorothy Schendel
intend to join Ringling Bros. circus as tight-rope walkers. Neverthe-
less, it is a fact, and we wish them success.
Karl Compton and Ella Haines married and leaders of society in
New York? It can't be possible! Oh yes it can, for such is their
aspiration. We understand that Ella does not mean to take as active
a part in society as Karl, her nature being of the quiet sort, but she
intends to assist him in all his efforts.
There is one girl in our class who wishes for one thing, more than
anything else in the world. She desires to become an instructor for
the deaf and dumb in the city of Lawndale. Of course, by this time
you all know who she is, don't you? For fear there is any one who is
in doubt, I will tell you her name, Ida Osterbeck.
Yes, she did have a literary turn of mind, but that is not her only
ambition. You will see Catherine Rice as a waitness in the Fordney
Hotel immediately after graduation.
All that is improbable is not impossible. Do you know that Lydia
Christ, Lillian Reisner, Mildred Heidger, and Helen Claflin are pursuing
a similar course? They will, one after another, take the places of
the movie stars who will be compelled to give up their reign of popu-
larity on account of age or some other infirmity. We wish them all the
success, which we know they will deserve.
Ethel Curran has decided to sing in Grand Opera and hopes some
day to marry a duke from Paris.
Bishop Davis' one aspiration is to become a celebrated physician
in St. Louis, Mich. He means to preside over a large hospital in that
city, and earnestly desires that Margaret Pitts and Francis Duff shal-l
be nurses under his direction.
Will strange things never cease happening? Maurice Brown, it
is rumored, can dream of but one thing, sleeping or walking, and that
is that he might-some day become the Mayor of Bridgeport. We can
only solve the mystery in this way. Hazel Beach and Olive Hymans
intend to make that city their future home.
"Of all the things in heaven and earth, a man is of the smallest
worth? Such is the way Ruth Schoeneberg and Sylvia Kaiser feel,
for the former has decided that she will hold the position of dean at
Vassar during her lifetime, and the latter means to spend her life in
the same school. They have always been so studious, that we feel
confident that they will make a success of their life work.
The class of '21 will soon be able tooboast of three very successful
detectives. Rudolph Krause, Harlem Volker, and Russell Swarthout.
They will work under a powerful detective bureau in Chicago.
Rumors say that Leota Goodrow and Bob Allardyce are engaged,
and are to be married very soon.
Orville Gile says that if he could have two wishes granted to him,
the first would be to have Evelyn Richter for his wife, and the second
would be to have a quiet little farm in the southern part of Michigan.
We hope the Fairy Godmother will appear very soon, Orville. We all
are very anxious to come to the wedding.
Claude Clark and Dick Rankin are striving towards the same
goal. They earnestly wish to be champion football players at Yale.
We wish them good luck.
Leslie Eynon and Enoch Yates intend to follow the same line.
They wish to become dancing school masters in Paris. No doubt they
will soon be able to start a school of their own. We strongly suspect
that Ethel Curran's presence in Paris is the magnet which draws
Leslie's aspirations in that direction.
Don't judge a person by his quiet sober manner. Russell
Shepard will soon be leading comedian in one of the best musical
comedies of the day. Ruth Avery expects to be a dancer in the same
Can you imagine Art Curran and Edward Peters as policemen?
If you have been dreaming of this turn of affairs, your dreams will
soon be realized. It is rather dangerous, if you are not careful, to
wear the invisible blue.
You say he sells carpet beaters? No, no, he is a temperance
leader. Who? Elmo Wilkinson. Go to it, Elmo, we're with you.
Carrie Purchase and Hazel Baskins have a mutual train of
thought in one respect. They wish to travel abroad and they want,
especially, to visit Africa. We wish them a pleasant trip. Dorothy
Doerfner did intend to accompany them, but lately she has decided
that she would rather remain at home and sell tickets in the dance
hall at Riverside Park.
Margaret Curtis has been dreaming of a chic millinery shop on
Fifth Ave. After graduation she intends to realize her dreams. Lena
Pankonin expects to become her assistant. We are rather surprised,
Margaret, but you have our best wishes.
Lloyd Wiltse will also take up athletics in college where he is
to finish his education. He intends to turn out for basketball and
secure the place of jumping center.
Walter Roeser expects to take up his work in an entirely different
field. In a few years he expects to be a country school master, feared
and looked up to by the small boys under his rule.
Did you know that it is soon to be a very popular thing for a
woman to hold the position of a minister? Pauline Smith is consider-
ing a position of this kind. Warren Thompson intends to take up
this same line of work. We sincerely hope they will prosper and
never falter from their purpose.
Laura Schwahn will soon be studying hard in college. She
intends to be a physical culture teacher. Gretchen Roethke seems in-
clined in the same direction. They both wish to teach gymnasium
in the Y. W. C. A.
In the fall of 1922, if you should visit the Western Union Tele-
graph office in Chicago, you would see there, among the little blue
uniformed boys, Arthur Witham, faithfully performing his duty as
a messenger boy.
Ringling Bros. circus seems to have a great attraction for the
girls and boys of our class. Milton Wager hopes to be an animal
trainer in said circus.
Herbert Wettlaufer has a small general store in view, in the
vicinity of Zilwaukee. If he carries out his inclination, he will be
sole proprietor of this little store for the greater part of his life.
I suppose you have been thinking we are not patriotic, but we
are not slackers by any means. Edward Ure and Clarence Wilkinson
hope, by hard work and patient endurance, to secure prominent places
in the U. S. Army. .
We have several classmates who seem to 'have talent in the
direction of the theater. Leona Dollhoph, Fyliss Ostrander, Erma
Wiltse, and Ruth Zander may be seen many times each day, when-
ever they have a little spare time, practicing fancy dances and drills,
so that they may be fitted to enter the Jeffers next fall as chorus
Henry Kehren will be a very prominent figure at Palm Beach
next season, if his present desires are fulfilled. His dear friend,
Russell Brandt, will accompany him and assist him in his work. As
life savers, boys, we are sure that you will fit the bill.
Etta Stielow and Caroline Meyer seem to think that there is
one thing, and one thing only, that would afford a pleasing occupation
for young ladies. They, no doubt, in the near future, will be traveling
saleswomen. They wish to specialize in the selling of Mazola Oil as
a substitute for all other fats used in cooking.
Almost anytime of the day, you can see a certain young lady in
high school studying hard in order that she might excell in public
speaking. This industrious young miss is Alma Weichmann. She
tells us that it is her greatest desire to become an orator.
Ella Turnbull is another very studious person when public
speaking is being considered. However, we learn that written dis-
course is more to her liking than oratory.
Gladys and Grace Harper expect to have the entire management
of a large ranch in the West. They have been considering a proposi-
tion of this kind for a long time, and have finally decided to purchase
the ranch known as Circle O.
John Herzog will be engaged as overseer and expert cow-
puncher, if the plans of all concerned work out as they are expected.
I see a bachelor, middle-aged, living the life of a hermit on a
farm in the southern part of the state. He is Jim Hay. Such is
the picture as portrayed to me through the actions and words of
this young man.
Nellie Blackstone and Ellen Morgan, who have always been such
close companions, are now planning a task which will still enable
them to be together. The goal for which they are striving is to give
swimming lessons at Wenona Beach.
Parlez-vous, Francais? Oui! Says Ed. Cherry, "That is what I
will soon be teaching, if I have my way about it. I hope to be a
French professor some day." Best wishes, Ed.
Our firm and steadfast companion, Bessie Close, wishes to be
a stern, haughty, principal in a girl's finishing school at Philadelphia.
It's hard to believe, but Bessie is determined. Walter Bonhoff says
that if Bessie is to be at that school he will be there too, and so we
expect he will take the place of the janitor, whenever it is possible
for him to do so.
Duane Chamberlain has promised to accept the office of head
organizer for the Boy Scout's association at Hemlock. Earl Marquis
desires to be his chief assistant.
Russell Stickney, Joe Robertson, and Winifred Lange wish to
become expert stone road builders. They are considering a ,con-
tract which has been offered them, and intend to take up this work
upon leaving school this June.
Carol Redmond and Frank McDermid have always been such
close companions, that they think it would be a wise and agreeable
plan to attend M. A. C. together.
Edith Miller has one thought that is continually on her mind.
She thinks and hopes that some happy day she may be slim. She
is trying Dr. Brady's rolls as a reducing exercise at the present time.
We wish you success, Edith.
Gladys Plambeck will enter college after completing her course
at Arthur Hill and study to become a domestic science and art
teacher in our new school building.
Dorothy Lewellyn is looking forward to the time when she will
live as a quiet little spinster in some remote village near the Katskill
Dorothea Reichle will commence immediately after leaving
school to master the art of shorthand. She aspires to hold the cham-
pionship in a few years. Good luck.
We have related to you, to the best of our ability, the hopes
which have found a home in the hearts of our school mates for many
years. If anyone who may read this little writing finds is possible
to aid any of these people in furthering their purposes, let him do
so and receive a grateful heart in return for his labor.
