LEGENDA Published by the SENIOR CLASS ARTHUR HILL HIGH SCHOOL Saginaw, W. S., Michigan MIC HI CAN KTERSCHOLASTIC o= =iO PRESS ASSOCIATION June 1926 Jack Bauer Delbert Rice George Kreuger Editor Associate Editor Business Manager Foreword It is the hope of the board and staff of the 1926 Legenda that they have carried out the task given them, that of publishing our year book, to the least minute point. The cooperation given us by the student body of the high school has played no small part in the success of our year book. The board and staff know that you will treasure this book more than anything else connected with your school life and it is with great pleasure that we present to you the 1926 Legenda. We the class of nineteen hundred twenty-six dedicate this book to Dorotbv Slunncr in our gratitude for what she has done for us and in token of our regard for her Harold W. Steele, Superintendent William F. Head, Principal The High School The Library •piiMin«i«illi«piiP«w«l «HlMi The Board •;S!Bi;K ' ' 5P ' «»aw». ' a The Staff Editorial Undoubtedly the most appropriate subject for an editorial in a year book would be the history of the publication of the book. Without a question the Legenda is the oldest publication of Arthur Hill High School. It started with the twentieth cen- tury. It was the class of 1901 which was responsibls for the editing of the first Le- genda which came out in the spring of 1900. From that time on until 1912, the Legenda was published irregularly and was edited by any group of seniors who were in- terested in having a history of their school days. After 1912 the Legenda was pub- lished annually by a board and staff select- ed from the members of the senior class. The book at present is greatly different from any one of the early publications. Formerly it was not only for the high school, but it also included the doings of the grade schools. The method of obtaining funds for publishing the book, that of solic- iting advertising, is no longer used, so we stand almost alone among the annuals of the state in being self-supporting. We think that an annua! should thrill the alumnus when he is looking through its pages. It should retell his school life and activities, his pleasures and friends. And we think that the annual should be on file in the library as a part of the school ' s his- tory. Helen Anstey ........... Commercial University of Wisconsin He)en Brimeyer ...........

Miss Skinner was chosen to guide those children through tha three years that lay so dark in the future. Part I It was not long before the newness wore off and we walked around the halls with ease and in October the following class officers were elected: President George Krueger Vice-President Roland Hohisel Secretary Wilma Radtke Treasurer Ruth Geddes This was only a beginning of our work and we became prominent in many fields, especially the athletic field. Here we showed that we were to be valuable to the future teams of Arthur Hill. Wis were represented on the football team by Davis, Krueger, Turner, and Bauer. On the basketball team Krueger and Bauer also took part. Erma Trask and Emma Carmichael helped the girl basksteers to make a very successful season. Part II The bell rings for a new term and we again enter Arthur Hill, this time advanced to the place of juniors. We mads " Success " our motto and began our year by electing four capable officers : President Reuben Dill Vice-President George Krueger Secretary Emma Carmichael Treasurer Jack Bauer On the twenty-first of March we celebrated our class party which was held jointly with the seniors. This party proved to be one of the mo;;t outstanding parties of the year. In athletics this year we were represented by Turner, Krueger, Dill and Bauer on the football squad, and Krueger and Eauer in basketball. The girls had a successful program, due to Evelyn Hinte, Captain-elect, Emma Carmichael, Erma Trask, and Mai ' garet Tyler. On the second team were Meyer, Hard, Jeffrey, and Norman. On February sixth, we gave our class play, " Adam and Eva, " a three act comedy that " went over big. " Another year gone and still another to come ! Part III Days may come and dayc- may go — most of our school days at Arthur Hill have gone. We are about to complete our work, — we are the members of the senior class ! As usual our manner is business-like. We open our year by organizing our class and then appointing our Legenda Staff. We add new names to our athletic list. Bauer, Krueger, Davis, Geddes, Rice, Barnett and Knott are the members of our class on the football team, and Captain Krueger, Bauer, Knott and Gensiver are our basketball players. Did we ever give anything that was not a success? No, so our annual party given with the juniors, April seventeenth, in the annex was, as usual, a " knockout, " as was our class play " Bab " pre. ' rented May seventh at the North Intermediate School. We are about to begin our plans for the Junior-Senior Banquet and then the long waited for days of Baccaulaureate and Commencement are coming. We entered High School with a vague idea of its joys and now as we are about to spend our last days here, we recall those joys and seme sorrows, and also those things that could have been done better if they v ere to be tried again. Now wcJ are about to begin again, a new course in life — perhaps just as eagerly as we began our high school course three years ago. We are equipped, however, with this helpful knowledge learned in Arthur Hill — that now is the time to do whatever we do well. Success waits for no second turn !

As to the exact state of the weather on that aus- picious day, consult the local weather bureau. And as for the building that received us into its broad arms, confer with our hoary great-great-grand-parents. One hundred and seventy-five of us were christened with the usual appellation of " green Sophs " but we pursued our way undisturbed, glorying in the philo. ' -ophy that fools always mock wiser men. We did cur tricks; we played the part and came through as good sports. As students we showed indications of brilliance. Our North and South rivalry be- came blended into an Arthur Hill loyalty. Outside activities, such as clubs and " ath- letics, counted our class members as keen adherents. Neither were we lacking in social graces, and on March 20, we staged one of the prettiest parties of the year. So here we are, singing the prai-ses of our Sophomore class. We ' re proud, and Arthur Hill will be proud, of ' 28 before we have finished our good work.

We got off early owing to the fact that we organ- ized early and elected able officers to determine our course. Our excellent football record was upheld in a creditable manner, there being lWO Junior lettermen, Fred Shimmers and Ferdinand Piaszek on the team. We w ere well represented on the basketball floor as well. In the interclass games the boys won second place, while the girls made places i.00. In fact, we were well represented in all school activities, for there were three Juniors, LaRone Cherry. Helen Caitwright and Audree Wilcox on the debating teams. The Junior party was held jointly with the Seniors and v as declared a big success. We are confident that the third year of the cruise will prove as much of a success as the previous two years.

Senior Class We Seniors started the year with a rush, holding a peppy class meeting at which we elected the following officers: President, Reuben Dill Vice-President, Delbert Rice Secretary, Evelyn Hinte Treasurer, Ruth Meyer Those who brought honor to the class through athletics were Dill, Rice, Gensiver, Fisher, Barnett, Geddes, Bauer and Krueger who was captain of the basketball tsam. The girls ' class basketball team was composed of Ruth Meyer, Mavy Cansfield, Mar- garet Norman, Evelyn Hinte (captain), Margaret Tyler and Erma Trask. The class was represented in debate by Margaret Copeland and Gladys Bryant on the affirmative team, and Leona Winegarden and Louis Schmidt on the negative. The Junior-Senior Hop, always one of the big events of the year, acquired the reputation of being one of thj best social successes ever achieved at Arthur Hill. " Bab, " our class play, was " put across big, " and our year book, due to the ef- forts of an able staff was one of the successes of the year. The year will end in another rush with the Seniors looking forward to the Junior and Senior Banquet, and then. Commencement. gmts y a; , jg±ijMiy :«ysg»sg - ' -M " AIHLEIIGS Foot Ball September 19. The Hillites played a very close game with Ithaca. Because the weather was very warm, the game was hard to play. The score does not indicate very hard playing, but Rugh changed the taam around considerably in order to find the best men for each position. The playing of Davis and Wray in the back field and Krueger and Knott on the line was noticeable. September 21. Cass City gave the Hillites a bad scare by scoring in the first few minutes of the game, but the Rughmen found themselves, and in the second half they scored ninsteen points, thus winning. W;i-ay and " Midget " Davis in the backfield and Bauer and Krueger on the line stopped many plays which would have meant a great deal to Cass City. October 3. The Hillites journeyed over to Owosso and defeated them 19 to The game was featured by two long passes from Wray to Krueger, both resulting in touch- dovvns. The other touchdown was made by Dill through Owosso ' s line. Bauer Knott and Kruager on the line and Dill and Wrav in the backfield, played a very consistent game. October 10. Again Battle Creek proved to be the Hillite ' s jinks. We outplayed them, but owing to the softness of the field, our light backfield couldn ' t get started and the score indicated that we did net cross ihAr goal line. Dill in the ba ' ckfield was our one ground gainer. Bauer, Knott and Barnett on the line were the Hillite ' s main- stays. Healy ' s good backing up of the line was a bright feature. October 17. The Rughmen could not stem the tide of th:- heavy Flint Central team. 1 he fine playing of Brazil and Young cf the opposing team in the backfield could not be stopped This game was played in a sea of mud and you could not tell one plaver froni another. By block kicks and intercepted passes the Centralites gained their touchdowns. Wray and Dill proved to be the Hillite mainstays. October 24 Again the Hillites played in a .sea of mud against Grand Rapids Union. The Union team played the superior game, but it was due to a few lucky breaks that they were able to run up the score as Ihey did. Dill was the only ground gainer for the Hillites. The score was 31 to in favor of Grand Rapids Union October 31. The team journeyed to Muskegon, only to be defeated 14 to The game was hard played by both sides, but through ths e.xchange of punts, the Rughmen lost out. Although the Hillites outpassed the Huskies, thev were unable to get close enough to score. Rice and Barnett were strong on thj defense, and Knott and Krueger were the ground gainers for the Hillites. «.Ar Vy J ' " ' ■, We went down to Bay City with the idea of dedicating their new i| 4o,000 btadium, but this was impossible on account of the weather. The Hillites started with a rush, but could not make many large gains because of the thickness of the mud and clay. Arthur Hill made three first downs to Bay City ' s one. On the line Mead, Skimmin, Geddes and Barnett stopped Lefler for no gains throughout the entire contest. In the backfield. Dill and Captain Wray did their share in holding Bay City for no gains. November 14 The Prison City boys came to Saginaw thinking that the game was won, but before it was over they were sadly disappointed, being on the tail end of a lb to score. The feature of the game was an intercepted pass by Dill who ran seventy yards for a touchdown. The playing of Rice and Captain Wray was also noticeable. Bauer and Barnett played like all-state men, stopping .Jackson ' s ' rushes like a stone wall Rugh used many substitutes so that no one would be injured for the lurkey Day Game. Thanksgiving Day Game The Rughmen won llie annual classic for the first time in ten years. The game from start to finish was a cee-sawing affair, first the Hillites having the ball then Sagi- naw, and brought forth no real playing throughout the entire contest. A great deal of kicking was done by both sides with Vesterfelt having a slight edge over the Hillites, but while Davis was returning the punts the Rughmen broke even, for they had a slight edge in the passing department. Knott threw several that were good for uig gains, one from Knott to Dill for thirty-two yards. Another was from Knott to Dill for nine yards which paved the way for the first and only touchdown. After this play Rice went around end for three yards then Knott for three more. With two yards to go. Dill carried the ball through Saginaw ' s line for the touchdown. Through the entire game Rice, Dill and Wray divided honors of carrying the ball. Knott did very good woi ' k as a passer. Vincent on an end position played the best game of any end ihat day. The Hillite line as a whole played a very good game only allowing one first down to be made through it. The honor of beating these " foemen so worthy of their steel, " for the first time in so many years, goes to many boys who will be unable to play on any Hillite team hereafter. These are Krueger, Skimmin, Geddes, Bauer, Bai ' nett, Healy, Rice, Davis, Dill, Knott, and Captain Wray. Our Men Basket Ball During the Christmas Holidays the Hillites toolc a three game trip, playing Rogers City, Alpena and East Tawas. They won one game and lost two. The Hiilite team was composed of Knott, Bauer, Jacques, Michalke, Dezelsky, Luplow, Wagner, Kleinschmidt and assistant coach Tarrant. First Game January 8. The Hillites journeyed to Flint. Because the fioor was larger than the Hillites were accustomed to, they were unable to get started, and at the end of the game they were on the small 2nd of a 41 to 14 score. The Hiilite second team lost to Flint ' s second team 18 to 13. Seco)id Gciine January 1.5. Captain Krueger and his team mates defeated the Food City quintet badly. Although the Battle Cr3ek team played a good floor game, it could not account for any scores. At the end of the first half the Rughmen were in the lead by eleven points. In the next half our team allowed only one field goal while they made eleven points themselves. The score was, Arthur Hill 29, Battle Creek 9. The reserves won from the Michigan Lutheran Seminary 21 to 8 in the preliminary. Third Game January 22. The Hill basketeers journeyed to Ov osso hoping to defeat them, but due to the late appearance of Jonathan Knott, star guard for the Hillites, the Rugh- men wer? unable to hold Owosso the first half. The second half the Hillites outplayed them, only to lose by one point. Score, Owosso 17, Arthur Hill 16. Foittth Ga)ne January 27. We journeyed over to Central Junior High to battle with Captain Denton ' s warriors. The game was very interesting from start to finish, with the Hill- ites on the big end of the score through the entire contest. The playing of Knott was very good. He kept his man well covered from start to finish. Score, Arthur Hill 23, Saginaw 13. The Hiilite Reserves beat the Saginaw Reserves in a very fast game. -I Fifth Game January 29. In this contest we saw the last appearance of Jonathan Knott in the suit of a Hiilite. He was an all around guard, both on offense and defense. Owosso was beaten by the score, 28, and 25. The game was fast from start to finish. Sixth G-ame February .5. The big Flint Central Team came to Saginaw hoping again to defeat the Hillites, but no such thing happened as the score indicates. The Hillites were determined to beat the Flint Barketccrs and they did. The whole team played at its best in this game. Score, Arthur Hill 25, Flint 22. The second team game " was won by Flint, 22 to 11. Seventh Game February 13. Arthur Hill 33, Port Huron 24. This score was a complete sur- prise to every Hiilite rooter. The Tunnel City team thought that they had played an all state team when the Rughmen had finished the game. The Hillites in this contest lilayed their best game. Jack Bauer at guard did not allow his man to make a basket throughout the entire game. Eiyhth Game February 19. The Hillites went to Bay City. Due to Bay City ' s air tight defense, the Rughmen were unable to shoot. Captain Krueger was held scoreless the entire game. The score. Bay City 12, Arthur Hill 5. The reserves ' game was won by the Hillites in the last few minutes of play. Baskets by Seiferlein and Kreuchauf boosted the score to Arthur Hill 14, Bay City 12. Ninth Game February 20. The Hillites were completely outclac-sed by Port Huron. The score was 25 to 13 showing that the Rughmen were entirely oiT form. Bauer was the most consistent player of the game. Things will take a turn, you know. Tenth Game February 20. At Battle Creek the Hillites were defeated by a small margin. The inability to make a point in the third quarter proved to be the undoing of the Rugh- men. Captain Krueger was the high scorer, v ith Gensiver the only other one who could make more than two points, ' ihe score, Battle Creek 29, Arthur Hill 21. Eleventh Game March 5. Bay City Central extinguished the Hillite ' s hopes for the valley title by defeating the Rughmen in a close game. Captain Krueger was the only Hillite to make a field gcal. Gensiver made the first score of the game on a free throv . Score, Bay City 10, Arthur Hill 4. In the reserve game the Hillites beat Bay City reserves 16 to 9. Twelfth Game March 10. The Rughmen nosed out Captain Denton and his basketeers of Saginaw High in the last minute of the game. A free throw by Michalke gave the Hillites a one point decision. The game was the most exciting played by the Hillites this year. Krueger, Gensiver and Bauer made their last home appearances in this game. All of them played a good game. Score, Arthur Hill 28, Saginaw High 27. Our reserves also won from Saginaw reserves. Last Game March 18. At the Flint Tournament the Hillites led by Captain Krueger started off with a rush against Flint, but could not keep the same pace and were soon left in the rear. After Coach Bassett sent in Adams, his star forward, the Centralites got the lead and kept it the rest of the game. For the Hillites Dezelsky was the out- standing player, making four field goals. The score, Flint 32, Arthur Hill 16. APTtR ThEGAft-Th[ STORM rt dASj i Ttit QUICK An DIRTY sumR cm Track Captain Rice and Coach Rugh had many new candidates for this year ' s track team. They look promising: and under the coaching of Rugh we hope to have a good outdoor track season. Captain Rice in the half mile, Zeilinger in the mile, Floyd Hach in the dashes, and Reuben Dill in the weight events, were the Hillite ' s point winners in the indoor track meets. In the first outdoor meet at Flint, Arthur Hill came in third, losing out by half a point for second place which went to Saginaw High with Flint placing first.

F. Head The Student Council For the first time in the history of Arthur Hill, a Student Council has been estab- lished as a mediator between the student body and the faculty. The first regular meeting of the Student Council was held February 11, 1926. The officers for the year 1926 are: President, Delbert Rice; Vice-President, Reuben Dill; Secretary and Treasurer, Jack Bauer. A faculty advisory board was chosen by the Student Council with Mr. Dersch chairman, and Mr. DeHaven, Miss Clarke and Mr. Kumler the other members. The Student Council sponsored a " Hollo Week, " put a monitor system into practice, and discussed whether or not a blanket ticket would be worth while for the students of Arthur Hill. In the future the Student Council will have charge of all the all-school parties and of assemblies. It will play even a greater part in the school life of Arthur Hill as the years go by. ■ ■ i J f fsl t Arthur Hill Parent-Teachers ' Association President, Mrs. C. J. Bauer Vice-President, Mrs. Margaret Joyce Secretary, Mr. McKay Treasurer, Miss Skinner " The Arthur Hill Parent-Teachers ' Association was organized Anril 16th, 1920 by parents and teachers interested in the John Moore and Arthur Hill Schools The Club was then known as the John Moore-Arthur Hill Community Club and remained such until December 22nd, i;)21 when the John Moore Association withdrew from the organ- ization. As the aim of the association is, in part, " the harmonizing of home and school life " the programs of this year, 1925-26, have dealt largely with various school courses and activities. These expositions of school life have been presented in various forms and have been of great interest to the parents. They have shown just what the students are domg and learning, and have also let the parents know to some extent the prob- lems with which the teachers are contending. There has also been at each meeting, an informal social hour at which refreshments have been served and where parents and teachers have become better friends through the exchange of ideas and discussion of their personal problems. Every parent of the Arthur Hill students should be interested enough to be a member. The Booster Club President, Evelyn Hinte Vice-President, Milton Smith Treasurer, Albert Bauer Rah! Rah; Rah! Come all ye loyal! ! ! Say! We ' ve just got to do something to start the ball arolling! Got lotsa ' pep? ! ! Better join the Booster Club then, ' cause that ' s what they stand for! Did you attend all the basketball and football games, and debates? Did you notice the decorations, the big parades and all the noise making? The Club, w ith the aid of various committees has decorated Merrill Field, put across some real parades, extended welcomes to visiting schools, sold pencils and horns, planned and took charge of pep meetings, decorated the Annex for basketball games and debates and made themselves generally useful around Arthur Hill. The aims of the Club are to: 1. Arrange programs for pep meetings; 2. Meet teams and welcome visitors; 3. Decorate field for football. Annex for basketball, and 4. Organize parades; 5. Cooperate with Mr. Rugh and Mr. Wells. The Booster Club wants members who are willing to work, to cooperate with the other members of the Club and who have lots of pep. At the end of every year the Club is going to give awards to the people who are worthy of them. The following members received an award this year.

Last fall, however, it was decided that the boys and girls should separate and each form a club of its own. The girls thereby captui ' ed the honor of being the first club of its kind among the high schools of the State of Michigan. Both clubs so far can boast of a successful year in that they have built a two-tube radio set and a " B " battery eliminator. Besides this, each member has mastered the theory of the radio. Both radio clubs have planned an extensive program for next year, which it is hoped will also be carried out successfully.

The club staged two psppy school parties and has taken an active part in school activities. Several trips to leading industrial plants were made. Among them were: the Dow Chemical Plant, Midland; the Buick Motors, Flint; the River Rogue Plant of the Ford Motors. Admission to this club is possible to boys having a " B " average in chemistry and a good average in their other subjects. The insignia of membership is a blue and gold pin in the shape of a hexagon, symbolic of the Benzene ring, upon which are two crossed retorts. This club was founded foui years ago by Mr. Dersch, head of the science department.

Many of the old members graduated last year and almost all the boys were new at the beginning of the year, but through hard work we have managed to survive and make a club as good as previous ones. The secret is Clean Living, Clean Speech, Clean Athletics, and Clean Scholarship. The Club meets every two weeks at the Y. M. C. A. where interesting speeches and enjoyable luncheons are held. Mr. McKay led the Club in a discussion course which proved to be both helpful and interesting.

The organization meeting was held in October, 1925 and monthly business mest- ings have been held regularly since then. In February, 1926, eight new members were admitted. On March 24, 1926, the club gave a play entitled " Aqui Se Habla Espanol. " The part of tha American attempting to speak Spanish by studying a book, " Spanish Before Breakfast, " was very cleverly acted by Harold Mayne. Clarence Fiting took his. part as the Spaniard so well that one would hardly know he was not a native of Spain. In fact, all did well, and the play found an enthusiastic reception by the audiencs.

It has been the aim of the club to bring the letter winners together in a social way, to stamp in them the spirit of team competition outside of the athletic field, and to put the athletic department of this school on a higher plane. Any boy in school who has won a letter is eligible to membership. Three members of this club, Jack Bauer, Reuben Dill and Ferdinand Piaszek were honored by membership in the National Athletic Scholarship Society of Secondary Schools. For eligibility to this organization it is necessary for the person to rank high in a scholastic way as well as to be a good athlete.

The purpose of the club is to get every girl interested in school activities. The club has given several parties during the year of 1926, one of which, the Hal- lowe ' en party, was especially delightful. It was given in the Annex, October 31. Games and dancing were the features of the evening, and of course refreshments were served. Prizes for the best costumes were awarded to Miss Morgan, Miss Woodman and Viola Kifmiller. The Girls ' Club had charge of the assembly, April 21, Margaret Tyler, president was the chairman. Several selections were given by the Girls ' Glee Club. Mrs. English was the speaker for the afternoon. She spoke on Vocations after Leaving High School. Girl Reserves The Girl Reserves organization has made much progress since it was organized April 22, 1924. The latter part of last year the following officers were elected: President, Evelyn Hinte; Secretary, Ruth Meyers; Treasurer, LaRone Cherry. Under the direction of these officers, and with the support of Miss Kuehn and Mrs. Squires, the girls have sponsored many successful affairs. Early in the year a tea was given in the annex in order to get acquainted and secure new members. At Thanksgiving time, baskets were filled for poor families, and at Christmas the girls sponsored one of the biggest events of the year, which was the " Big Sister " party given at the Y.W.C.A. The Club is divided into four divisions. The first is the Program committee; the second, the Service; the third, the Membership; the fourth, the Social. Under the supervision of these committees the work of the Girl Reserves is carried out. The organization seeks to develop girls along three lines; mind, body, and spirit. Its slogan is: " To face life squarely, " and its purpose, " To find and give the best. " It is the ambition of each girl to secure twenty honor points, which entitles her to a pin. The Wy-Alan Campfire Group The Wy-alan (North Star) group of Campfire girls was reorganized at Arthur Hill High School in November, 1925. The group is made up of eleven members and more are always welcome. The law of the Campfire is: Seek beauty, give service, pursue knowledge, be trust- worthy, keep health, glorify work, and be happy. Our main is to give service.

The House started this year with twenty-five members, but as the constitution states that four tardinesses or two absences disqualifies for membership, the number belonging at the end of the year is always small, and this year is no exception. The officers for the present year are: President, James Cartwright Assistant Clerk, Floyd Byron Clerk, Louis Friedlein Sargeant at Arms, Harry Bliss The house has been the scene of many lively debates some of which were on: World Court, Prohibition, League of Nations, etc. Each member who attends regularly and participates in the activities of the House is given one fourth credit. Debating Arthur Hill was very successful in debate this year. By winning the four prelim- inary contests the debate teams entered the elimination series. The debate question for this year was, Resolved: That the proposed child labor amendment to the national constitution should be adopted by the United States. The affirmative team composed of Audree Wilcox, Magaret Copeland, Gladys Bryant and LeRone Cherry the alternate, won its first debate with Midland, here. Its second contest was at Caro where the decision was also given in our favor. Leona Winegarden, Louis Schmidt and Helen Cartwright composed the negative team. They defeated Saginaw Eastern in a spirited debate on our own floor. Their next " victim " was Midland, and our team showed better form than before and well de- served the decision awarded thsm. The first debate of the elimination series was held at Detroit, where our negative team lost to Detroit Northern. The squad this year was composed entirely of inexperienced material with the ex- ception of Leona Winegarden a veteran of last year ' s team. For this reason much praise should be given for its excellent work in winning four out of its five contests. Standing — Audree Wilcox Leona Winegarden Helen Cartwright Margaret Copeland Seated — Gladys Bryant Louis Schmidt La Rone Cherry h§4- ' Kila Whitoii Duns HililL ' braiult Oratory and Declamation Through many years Arthur Hill has maintained a steady interest in Public Speak- ing activities of various types and among these Oratory and Declamation rank very high. Last year two experienced speakers brought many honors to our school. Audree Wilcox placed second in the sub-district declamation contest at Midland, and Don Vibert, after winning sub-district and district contests, was one of ten students to take part in the state final of the National Oratorical contest at Detroit. For his work Vibert won many prizes and medals both for himself and the school. This year without experienced material from which to choose Arthur Hill has again made a creditable showing. Ella Whiton who won the school oratorical contest, tied for third place with Saginaw Eastern ' s representative in the sub-district contest at Midland, in which nine schools of the neighbo ring cities were represented. Her oration was written on " World Peace. " Doris Hildebrandt, Arthur Hill ' s declaimer, also placed third in the same contest with Robert Ingersoll ' s speech, " A Vision of War. " Both of these girls, with another year ' s work, should take an important place in Arthur Hill ' s Public Speaking activities. Glee Club Despite the facts that the Glee Club worked under numerous instructors ind did not appear in a spring concert this year, this organization has had a very successful season. The untiring- ardor of Miss Austin together with the unusual enthusiasn; and interest displayed by the members, has made the club very popular and it was ap- preciated and well received at every appearance.

However, we have great hopes for next fall and when we get started, we are going with a boom. We have been held back a little by the absence of some of the members from practice, then too, we have had our instruments for only about five weeks. The following are the names of the members with the instruments which they play: Trumpets: Reynold Pankonin, Hale Lemmer, Floyd Byron, Robert Miles and Stanley Kane. Clarinets: Kermit Fischer, Roger Ball, Erwin Greuling, Clarence Hoerauf and Richard Harrison. Saxaphones: Bud Purmort, George Beardsley and David Block. Melophones: Louis Friedlein and Melvin Connel. Trombones: August Martna and Eric Braun. Baritone: Arnold Smith. Sousaphone: Alan Doidge. Director: Clarence Corbit. - Orchestra The orchestra, under the direction of Clarence Corbit, started out this school year with ten people. Only one of these people had had previous experience in an orchestra. In spite of this, the organization has increased its membership to fifteen, and has had a very successful season. The Arthur Hill, John Moore, and Stone Parent-Teachers ' Associations have called upon it often. Between acts at the Junior and Senior plays, as well as at assemblies, the orchestra has played. The members attended the state musical contest May 13 and 14 at Mount Pleasant. The members are: — First violins: Paul Werner, George Meier, Joseph Buyssens, Elmer Schenim, Virginia Bluem. Clarinets: Clarence Hoerauf, Erwin Grueling. Cornets: Stanly Kane, Reynold Pankonin. Saxaphone: Neil Wallace. Trombone: Eric Braun. Drums : Herman Stemler. Piano: Ruth Hicks, Lorraine Jochen. Things We ' ve Seen During 1925 - 1926 The Junior Play When you are old and gray And school days are far away, Won ' t you think it fun To look back on the things you ' ve done? Of course, you would not remember everything without a few reminders. This is a remmder of the Junior p ay, " It Pays to Advertise. " What! Did I hear somebody say they did not see it? Well, all I can say is, " You missed it. " Frank Kresanski made quite a dude as Rodney Martin until he fell for Mary Gray- son, abas Dons Bullock, his father ' s secretary. Everyone became just a little bit atraid of Loran Lange when they found how he could rave, for rave he surely did when he discovered that his .so» and his secretary w.n-e going into business agaiH..t him ' But he laughed when Rodney had gone for that was what he and Miss Grayson had planned. If you want to sell anything, get Archie Joyce to do it for you. As Ambrose f ' eale he told us why a hen s eggs are used so much more than a duck ' s eggs A hen makes more noise about it when she lays one. And you yourself would not have known that ArviUa Heyn was not a real countess. Poor fellows, they surely were fooled when they thought she could not understand English. And Edwin Hudson as Johnson the butler! Why do butlers always have their nose in the air, anyway ' ' Kermit ] ischer as Mr. Smith made a very agreeable family friend, one I should like to have T° " l? " Vr " , ' ' ' ' ° " ' " " " ' ' ' y° " ' to li ve Fred Shimmer for a landlord ' As Mr. Chesney he was the very Grossest landlord I ever saw. Ralph Schmerheim as Ellery Clark was just what he was supposed to be— a " rather— a— nice fellow who disliked— a— business. Frank Sleva as Mr. Bronson the man from Marshall Field ' s was just as we imagine a business man should be. Wilma Radtke and Helen Cart- wright may come to me any time they want recommendations for a position as office girls or mauls, they make real maids! In fact, the whole bespoke Mr. Schubert ' s coach- ing, the business part was well taken care of by Miss Taylor. ' " Bab " — The Senior Play " Throw up your hands! " Poor Bab! Her plans seemed to go back on her every time. Or was it fate? She tried to help, but as she said, nobody understood her and so could not help her. Maybe they understood Loretta Williams, but not Bab. Of course, Jane Raleigh understood her and sympathized with her plans and ideas. Harriet Axel made an ideal chum for Bab and kept her from feeling quite so lonely when the family misunderstood. The only other person who knew even what she was talking about was Alfred Gaertner alias Carter Brooks. I should rather like to have Rolland Meyer for a parent, because all you ' d have to do is to coax him to raise your allowance and he would do it. (At least he did for Bab). But Berenice McHvain as Mrs. Archibald was so at sea because of Bab ' s ways that she seemed more strict than she might have been otherwise, although she was anxious to find a suitable husband for Leila, alias Neida Stammers, and was very afraid that Barbara would get Mr. Beresford first. Clarence Kamischke in the role of Mr. Clinton Beresford was an Englishman seeking the hand of Barbara ' s sister but acted rather interested in Bab, much to the secret annoyance of Leila and her mot.her (and Carter Brooks). Eddie Perkins, known in school as Louis Schmidt, was still a child in Barbara ' s eyes. Why, he had just put on long trousers and was beginning to smoke and shave! Pooh ! Girls! Whatever you do, don ' t make up a lover and write a letter to him. Bab could tell you a few things about that. Harold Mayne as Harold Valentine thought she really loved him and frightened her nearly to death by saying she had to marry him. But, of course, you remember who came to the rescue. Why, certainly, it was Carter! Who else would it be? We don ' t need to say anything about John Day or Elizabeth Hard. We know now, that even though they like fun they can be straight, stiff, and solemn and make a butler or maid to be proud of- No one needed to ask who coached our players or who took charge of the business end of it. We are familiar with Mr. Schubert ' s ability and Miss Skinner ' s taste. «N First Annual Press Banquet of Arthur Hill High and Trade Schools This banquet was held in the main dining room of the Fordney Hotel at 7:30 Thursday evening, Octob n- 8th. Songs were sung between courses and a toast program was given. Ruth Geddes, editor in-chief of the Criterion, acted as toast mistress. The following responded with toasts: D3lbert Pasel, a printer of the Criterion; Arman Williams, circulation manager of the Criterion; Adjie Jamison, News Editor of the 192. " ) Criterion; Mr. Wilson of the advertising staff of the Saginaw News Courier; Mr. Head; and Mr. Allen. The chairmen of the respective committees were: Program, Margaret Copeland; arrangements, Arnian Williams; decoration, Mae Diehl. Crucible Jig The 192. ' )-2G social season was opened by the Crucibles with their annual party, the Crucible .Jig. This took place on October 17, and was well attended. Prizes were awarded during the evening. The annex was decorated with retorts, test tubes and other utensils that gave a " chemical atmosphere. " Girls ' Club Party The Girls ' Club gave the first " all-girls " party of the year on October 30, in the Annex. Stunts were performed and lunches were served during the evening. The Annex was very attractively decorated with Hallowe ' en decorations. Prizes for the cleverest costumes went to Miss Woodman, Helen Zeitler and Viola Kipfmiller. Legenda Party On November 7, the Legenda Staff gave its party which was a success, financially and socially. Prizes and novelties were awarded and distributed during the evening. The guests were entertained by a short play that illustrated the usefulness of the Legenda. p. T. A. Card Parties The Arthur Hill Parent-Teachers ' Association gave a numbsr of card parties dur- ing the winter at the homes of its members for the benefit of the honor banquet to be held in June. The Radio Club Dance On January 24, the Boys ' and Girls ' Radio Clubs united in giving a dance. Music was furnished by Uphoff ' s Orchestra. When dancing was well under way, favors of hats and horns were thrown from the balcony, making the scene a gay spectacle. Old time dancing was also attempted. Although this party was not a great financial success, it was a delightful affair socially. Girls ' Club Valentine Party Valentine Day was celebrated in Arthur Hill this year with a delightful party sponsored by the Girls ' Club. The Club certainly kept up its reputation for giving fine parties when giving this one. The Annex was practically transformed with red and white festoons, streamers and hearts of various sizes. The costumes were beautiful and vary appropriate. Hearts, other valentine games, and dancing were enjoyed during the evening, and fancy ice cream and cake were served. As a special feature, Florence Roeser presented her pupils in a very entertaining pageant. Sophomore Party More than a hundred sophomores had a wonderful time at their party, held March 20. The annex was colorfully decorated with rainbow streamers of crepe paper. A large bunch of balloons was suspended from the center of the ceiling. Comic hats and ncisemakers added to the hilarity, which rose to a height when some enthusiastic dancer managed to jump high enough to grab a balloon. A deluge of crepe paper streamers fell on the crowd. Byron ' s orchestra played and many parents and members of the faculty attended the party. Legenda Party The Staff gave their second all school party at the Annex March 27. Music was furnished by Diabel ' s Orchestra. The party was even a greater financial success than the first one. And those Friday afternoon parties given " on the spur of the moment " will never be forgotten! No, they were not exactly on the spur of the moment either, they were on the spur of the need of money that some class or organization felt. You know there is always a need of more money, for those trips, Legenda pages, etc., and there is always somebody in need of a chance to dance! These parties were always so informal, so chatty, and restful. Nobody ever seemed to mind staying after school those nights. The Washington Ball The debaters of Arthur Hill having decided to do away with the usual all school party for the purpose of raising money for the debate fund, gave in its place the Wash- ington Ball which proved to be one of the most enjoyable social events of the season. The Annex which in keeping with the occasion was decorated with red, white and blue streamers and American flags, was the scene of this party held Friday night, February 2(3. Music for dancing was furnished from 8:15 until 11:00 by th2 Bob White Orchestra and favors were distributed during the evening. The chapercnes were Miss Delbridge, Mr. Tarrant, Mr. Corbit and Mr. and Mrs. Dersch. Junior and Senior Hop " Ah! I ' ll never forget it! " " What will you never forget? What is all the excit3ment about anyway? " inter- rupted Helen. " Oh! weren ' t you there? You missed the time of your life! " Such were the conversations on Monday after the Junior-Senior Hop, hild at the Annex on April 17. The party was unexcelled m decorations, refreshments, favors, and games. The decorations of green, pink, and white and the many favors wire unique. Rushlow ' s Orchestra played from 8:1.5 to 11:00 Delbert Rice with Hilda Brown, and DorLs Bullock v. ' ith Robert McNish, fol- lowed by the class officers led the grand march, one of th = main features of the evening. Delbert Rice and Doris Bullock had been previously elected the most popular boy and girl of the Senior and Junior classes respactively. The Pcofles ' Forum Dear Editor: I am not a crank, but I would like to start a few things that probably no one but myself has thougrht of I would like to suggest some much needed changes in the courses of study that Arthur Hill students have to swal- low. I believe that a reform should be made at once before any study habits are formed. I believe that the peaceful loving students of our day should not be studying about the wars that that guy Caesar started. Another thing, I think Algebra should be taken out of the course because it deals with unknown quantities, and we want to know. And geometry should not be taught because the instructors themselves agree that it can be looked at from the wrong angle. Then there ' s that there English! A real business man, I find, hain ' t got no use for it, because for him silence is gold. I think these here subjects should be re- moved and others more useful and less fatigueing put in their place. I shall be glad to hear the opinions of others along these here lines. Respectfully, CARRY HORSON. He went over his history last night. Miss Taylor: " Where was the Declara- tion of Independence signed? " John Doerfner:: " At the bottom. " A Pa rody I saw her as she cams and went As graceful as a flower bent; She was a picture of delight So just imagine my poor plight . " Just one little kiss, " I caid. She looked at me with bended head Her eyes were dancing bluish elves — " God helps them who help themselves. ' Evelyn Hinte. Harold M.: " What ' s your middle name? " P. Seidell: " It ' s Work. " H. M.: " Is it? You never go by that name do vou? " Frosh (at P.O.) : " I ' d like to see some of your two cent stamps, please. " The clerk produced a sheet of one hundred twos, and our friend after a minute of serious thought, pointed to the stamp in the middle and said: " I ' ll take that one. " The little dears in art are painting their scarfs Their saving money. Yeh ! " There ' s a pair of good slippers " said Bud Braun as he threw the banana peel- ings down. Over the Radio We heard that Mr. Schubert will sing in " The Middle of the Night. " Miss Meyer — after signing tardy slip: " What is the matter, Jack, have you been on a vacation? " Jack: " No — not exactly a vacation — just a rest. " Mr. Krumler: " Where is the capital of the United States? " Max Scharf : " In Liberty Bonds. " Louis Scheib: " Hey, Mead. You don ' t know anything. " Don Mead: " I can count. " Clara S.: " What are the three speeds of a Ford? " Howard Babcock : " High, low, and push. Sherman R. : " Hey, Sue, if I ate my mother and father what would I be? " S. D.: " You ' d be a cannibal of course. " S. R.: " Tut, tut, thick one. I ' d be an orphan. " Miss Taylor: " Why was that period of history called the dark ages. " Bruce MacDonagh: " Because they had so many knights. " Oh Yes! Arthur Hill has its quota of antique cars. Mr. De Haven: " What did the Francisco earthquake do? " V. K.i " Shook the earth. " San Miss Skinner: (explaining a problem) " Now watch the board while I run through it once more. " Miss Williamson:: " What is the dif- ference between a fish and a lazy pupil? " Al Vincent: " One baits the hook, the other hates the book. " He sighed. She sighed. Finally: " I wish I had money dear, " he said, " I ' d tra- vel. " Impulsively, she slipped her hand into his, then rising she sped into the house. Aghast he looked into his hand. In his palm lay a nickle. Miss Gustafson: " Ralph how would you go about it to present the first act, scene one, of M.acbeth? " Ralph Hill: " I would hire an electri- cian and tell him to go ahead. " The New English Teacher: " What ' s your name? " Vern Day: " Day. " The New English Teacher: " How do you spell it? " Mary had a little lamb — You ' ve heard it oft before And then she passed her plate again And had a little more. Miss Morgan: " What is a country seat? " Joe Day: " A milk stool. " " Dick " Wilson : " Were you ever pinched for speeding? " " Chuck " Fernett: " No, but, I ' ve been slapped. " Hilton H.: " My girl has very sore heels. What would you suggest? " Red S.: " Rubber heels. " Hilton: " What with? " Clara S.: " I think the Charleston is awful. " Geddes: " I ' ve never heard it. " Woidcbi ' t it be fiDinii if — Mr. Dersch tryed to coax a ilo into school? Clarence Huebner would stop chasing kittens? We had a new basket in the Annex? The .Sophs could pass exams? Jack Bauer was a little fellow? Harold Mayne had to drive with both hands? Leona Winegarden wasn ' t talking to Miss Voght between classes? You could not write your own excuses? We ran out of foot ball tickets? Hilton Hess did not come to school late? Chris Basner swore off on women? Bruce MacDonagh ever brought his book to class? Everybody wore a little mustache like Sherman Roush ' s? When the new school is built, we suggest that seats of this type are installed.

Honor Banquet For the first time in tlie history of Arthur Hill High School, an Honor Banquet has been instituted for the purpose of conferring honor upon those students, who in any way have brought credit to the school. This banquet was made possible solely through the efforts of the Parent-Teacher Association and we hope that it will become an annual feature of Arthur Hill ' s activ- ities. As we go to press we find that the following students have been invited to at- tend the 1926 banquet: SCHOLARSHIP ATTAINMENTS (B Average in Each Subject) Elizabeth Cronk Margaret Eggert Marie Holl Margaret Holl Helen Cartwright Doris Frye Catherine Hard Joe Clark Albert Davis Reuben Dill Clarence Filing Alfred Gaertner Ruth Geddes 10th Grade Donna Hooper Elsa Lange Margaret Neuhaus 1 1 t.h Grade Arvilla Hevn Wilma R:uitke Margaret Ranzenbergei 12th Grade Floyd Hach Roland Hohisel Mildred Klenim Edna Knoerr Laura Kreutzfeldt Clara Marti Mary Schaefer Verma Thomas Helen Zeitler Margaret Schartow Carl Schemni Ruth Wolter Ruth Meyer Vanda Robertson Clara Schaefer Lydia Stroebel Loretta Williams ACTIVITIES (C Average of All Subjects Together) Gladys Bryant Helen Cartwright LaRone Cherry Academic Contest Ruth Anderson Debate and Oratory Doris Hildebrandt Louis Schmidt Editor of Criterion Ruth Geddes Ella Whiton Audree Wilcox Editor of Legenda Jack Bauer President Senior Class Reuben Dill Pres.
