ODE TO THE TEACHER
At the head of our High School we hold so dear
W'e have Mr. Nardiin whom we ne'er do fearg
Our Principal then, comes next in line
Mr. Menschel, by name, we like him just fine.
In Civics, and English and History too
All of our knowledge to Miss Gabriel is due.
Miss Howell's sense of duty can ne'er be surpassed
Her mood we well knew by the glances she cast.
Mr. NV. Lee Swaidner in athletics excels
He's our coach and victory he always spells.
NVhen Miss VVintzer's arouinid she always gives cheer
She teaches the language of Latin so dear.
In English IV we greet with a smile
Miss Campbell's lessons which are long as a mile.
One sense of duty she never does shirk
That is Miss Caldwell who is always alert.
Miss Schmidt, our teacher quiet as a mouse,
She knows everything about keeping a house.
'llhen French or Francais as Miss Postle would protest
She says it in French and we do our best.
In our department of business that is so well known
Mr. Nott does his duty, lack of work never shown.
There is Miss Dakin who is always true blue
just a sweet disposition is all that she knew.
Mr. Edmonds who is our architect great
His position he fills without a mistake.
Mr. VViley's the name of instructor on land
He tells them the difference between sawdust and sand
Mr. Goodman, the teacher of science so deep,
Took the place of Mr. Zeiders, who left us to weep.
Last but not least, and well liked by all
Miss Mytiniger's mighty though she is very small.

just as every true .Qmerican
Loves the dear red, white and blue,
Thus the memibers of our Senior Class
Hold the class of '22.
Four years have we struggled and labored
To attain this Well earned fame,
Each year was a little bit harder
But we buckled right down just the same.
Hut though we have toiled and labored
Still we did not think all was hard work,
For our school days were filled up with pleasures,
Though our duties we never did shirk.
A word such as "can't" we knew not
And success was our one greatest aim,
lNe feel that vve've all been rewarded
For taking our part in the game.
Our days that are best are now over
NVith regret we must leave them behind
And go out to life's great 'battle
To accomplish the tasks we're assigned.
XYith success we will meet many hardships
NVe will bear them as we have been taught,
XVe will fight, we will work, we will battle,
Until they are brought down to naught.
And now to our dear old lfligh School
Vlfe will raise a song of cheer,
lVith hopes that extend to the future
And mem'ries of our school days so dear.

CLASS HISTORY OF 1922
Once upon a time, not so very many years ago, order was created out of
chaos for a certain number of striving little souls. They endured eight long
periods of time trying to get accustomed to and acquainted with the manners
and peculiarities of this world and its inhabitants. To them life seemed a re-
petition of the same dull procedure until a new light began to dawn which
they recoginized as the Four Great Seasons of Education.
They entered on the first season with the same zeal and hope, which they
have retained up to this time, willingly performing the required tasks and
striving toward a Goal which loomed bright before them. Spring seemed
glorious and they enjol, ed it light-hearteclly.
After spending a few days of Summer, that season fascinated them, and
while they enjoyed the warm sunshine still they heeded the threatening storms.
However, they were so enthused that they could not restrain themselves and
so expressed their sentiments in music, arts, and lively activities.
This group of youinig people were so animated with life that they Were
loath to leave Summer, but Father Time could not wait and so they stepped
over the boundaries into Autumn. This period seemed to cast a sad and
gloomy aspect over all at first, but finally it taught these people to appreciate
life in a different light. Guided through dark nights by the bright, gleaming
stars of the faculty, they proceeded toward the festive white Wfinter.
There were many dark storms throughout this season but they were
cleared away by the many sports and social affairs which always accompany
that Season. Nevertheless a sad and gloomy shade seemed to be cast over
all: this was the end of a bright and happy year with only memories remain-
ing. Everyone was downhearted and sad Lllllrtll now they have discovered that
this one year of happiness has been only a forerunin-er of many similar bright
years and seasons: and again Spring looms promising and bright in the
"A full rich nature free to trust."
l'l renee is forever laughing and
n akes exeryc ne around her laugh. As
cass poet she helped to make the
ini al a fuccefs.
Meet the only senior of the girls

which escapes once in a while but we
like her just the same.
"He who invented work should have

in class. He is the teacher's chief
worry. lf you don't believe this ask

caused much merriment during his
high school career for which we are
"When joy and duty clash, let duty go
Helen is a girl that we all like. She
is one of our staunehest helpers when
it comes to class affairs.
"Blessings on thee, little man."
Ordell is one of the "big" Seniors.
He is always looking for a good time
and usually finds what he is looking
"A maiden never bold of spirit, still
One new member to our class. Helen
has not been here for so very long
but she has made many friends during
her brief stay.
"A jolly, good fellow."
Rotkins was good to us when she
sent this fellow up north. He joined
us this year and has proven afworthy
"Welcome whereso'er she went."
lllzlbcl has the power of thinking
things out for herself. When you
once gain her friendship she sticks to
you through "thick and thin."
'IA youth was there, of quiet ways."
Politics is "Dick's" hobbv. He is a
fine fellow and a good friend when
you get acquainted with hun.
"VVe miss him, yet we feel him still,
Admidst our faithful band,
As if not death itself could chill
The warmth of friendship's handf,
We c0uldn't get along without Carl
in the orchestra. He has a sense of
humor such as few people possess.
"With hair of raven hue."
Mabel is one of our most accom-
plished gigglers. Because of her ami-
able and happy disposition she is a
general favorite, both of the teachers
"Milly', is a Very quiet girl in
school. She does not have much to
say, but when she does say something
it has weight.
Helen is constantly worried about
her lessons, as she never has them!
She can't fool us-if she doesn't know
them why can she always recite?
"A man's a man for a' that."
"Peck" is another member of the
class of '22 who is good-naturctl and
always smiling. Energy is his middle
name-when it comes to work for the
"O'er her fair face sprinkled free,
Is a roguish traceryf'
Margaret is a friend to all, and
never swerves from the path of right.
She's studious yet she loves a jokeg
and does her tasks with all her might.
"How many saucy airs we meet"
"L die" hails from the wilds of the
north. Because of her bright, sunny
nature she has won a host of friends.
"Never sigh when you can sing,
But laugh, like me, at everything."
"Posy" is another giggler among
us. Most of the students who sit near
her are afraid to study for fear that
she will do something which they will
"Science surpasses the old miracles of
Lconard's interest falls to that of
science. He is especially fond of
electricity. He spends most of his
spare time working with electricity.
"She came and went."
We feel more like saying "hello"
than "good-bye" to Louella. We
aren't so very well acquainted with
her yet, but we like her smile.
"If you don't know-guess."
"Jiggers" is interested in baseball.
He does not care for study, but most
of us do not either so he is not an
"Dear, simple maid."
New Knoxville ' seems to like us
fine. We like them., too, for the kind
of students that they send up here.
"With nature so sweet."
Lorena likes to tell jokes so she
usually was chosen to give them in
our Civics programs. Needless to say,
we enjoyed them very much.
MAE EL FRISCHE
"A quiet, unassuming maid."
llzihel is one who does not believe
in fr1v,':'rfl actions. ller sweet :ind
genf'e-well, wrrfls Cannot express

ANNA RUTH GEBHART
"C ur hearts, our hopes, are all with
Precious things are not always put
rp in small packages. Anna Ruth has
rn eutleok on life which is ull her
own. XYe expect great things from
her in the future as an alto singer.
"A maiden young and fair."
Eloise does not like to be called
names, such as "Skeeters" for in-
stance, so we never say it.
"In Home Economics she excels."
A shy and timid girl is Sylvia, but
that does not keep us from liking her.
She has an cheerful "hello'l for every-
MARY HOLTKAMP '
"Life's too short to waste."
Mary hails from New Knoxville.
She has ll cheery smile for everyone
she meets. Here's hoping she lllily be
:is successful in her future life as she
is in school.
"She cannot count her friends."
NVQ say Gladys and Lucile like We
say 'fbread and butter" or "cup and
saucer." They are always seen to-
gether having a good time.
"In things athletic he doth shine."
Behold our basketball star! "Bernie"
cares' more for athletics than for any-
thing else, unless it is teasing the lady
members of the faculty.
"Her submissive ways."
Mary is one who goes about her
work quietly but accomplishes a great
deal in the end. It is this type of girl
that makes our class worth while.
"None but an editor knows an edi-
Regina is completing her high
school course in three years. As our
editor-in-chief she has made the An-
nual "hum" on to a big success.
"Be whatever you will but yourself
first of all."
Marjorie has been with us all
through our school life. Her highest
ambition is to become a school
"Sweet piece of bashful maiden art."
We have any number of quiet peo-
ple in our class. Hilda 1S one of them,
too, as those who know her can tes-
"Oh! perfumed suitor spare thy
Heres another bright and shining
light in athletics. He is not only a
member of the basketball team but on
the football squad. And that isn't all
-he is assistant editor-in-chief.
"I love to laugh, I love to play."
"Uemurc" is the adjective which
fits Ruth like a glove. Ruth is espe-
cially fond of giggling in class, in
fact she always is sure to make her
presence known in this way.
"The pleased musician bowed and
.Xs director of the Tunerville Band,
"Charlie" has trained his boys so per-
fectly that they have to be knocked

member to stop. Success to you
"A slight girl."
"Mickey" is as quiet as a mouse in
school, but good gracious, she is just
the opposite outside. She toe dances
"Hail to thee, blithe spirit!"
"Kate" is in on everything where
the school is represented. She made
her great hit in "Peggy O'Neill."
She is also an enthusiastic player of
tennis and is a member of the class
"I never stood on ceremonies."
Arthur is another member of our
class who is from Buckland. He likes
VVapak school or he surely would not
come here to finish his course.
"That boy with the grave mathemati-
Harvey just joined us this year,
coming, like Arthur, from Buckland.
He has made many friends during his
"She doeth little kindnessesf'
Marie never wastes a minute in
school, that is why she always has
her lessons. She insists on smiling to
"Mamma's angel boy."
NYhy, oh, why do the teachers talk
F0 much to him in the study hall?
He is perfectly angelic and we see no
reason for their acting thus.
"Many a word my tongue has uttered"
Nornia likes to talk but she likes
to laugh hettcr. It is her talkative-
ness that has caused her to get called
"A man of such a genial mood."
Mary found an able assistant car-
toonist in "Davy". Roy has many
friends in school who wish him suc-
cess after he leaves Blume High. .
"Pm as wild as wild can be."
.Xs drummer in the Tunerville Band
"Dutch" made at big hit with his sailor
jigging. Kurt's friendly smile has
won many friends during his high
here are greater men than I have
lived, but I don't believe it."
"Ed" is strong on argument. When
he knows a thing he knows he knows
he knows it and lets others know that
he knows it.
"Her heart is not in her studies, it is
Miriam is of the talkative kind and
says the right thing at the wrong
time. She is jolly and liked by all
who know her.
"Prone to mischief, able to perform it"
Here is a girl who can smile and
frown, but we usually see her wear-
ing the smile. She is a strong believer
in xroman's rights.
"Fully and perfectly man."
Howard knows basketball from
start to finish. He has great ability
as a player, too. As athletic editor
on the staff he has more than ful-
filled his position,
"A form more fair, a face more sweet"
Carol is our Priscilla. She made a
very sweet Priscilla, as she does a
"My words were true."
XVhy did Mary get her seat changed
in the study hall? We never could
find out because she never says a
word. CPB Maybe she will tell some-
Some say Jean, others Delma, she
will answer to either. Her name
makes no difference as she is always
ready to lend a helping' hand.
"Hang sorrow, care would kill a cat."
We wonder why everyone-espe-
cially the boys--teases Anne. She is
a happy-go-lucky sort of girl and
everybody likes her.
ALFRED RO EDIGER
"'An honest man's the noblest work
Alfred is a quiet level-headed fellow
from the vicinity of Moulton. His
most valuable time is divided between
farming and school.
"A spirit calmer than the calmest
Earl is interested in Science. When-
ever oral reports are assigned we
know what he will give. Not only
does he like Science, but hc knows it.
"She has strugglegmyearned, and
Lucile is thoroughly feminine. Her
high school life was varied, being full
of both work and play.
"For she was jes' the quiet kind."
Meta came last year, too, to join
us. She will not forget her classmates
and they certainly will not forget her.
"Serve yourself, would you be' well
Wilbur is the man of our class. He
is 21 typical Miles Standish and we
know that he makes a good one. Wil-

New York City, March 8, 1934.
XVe were very much surprised and pleased to find a personal letter
among our daily stack of business letters. We were astonished to learn that
Howard Zerkel, who had been star-gazing all of his life, had become a re-
nowned astronomer, and was receiving much aid in his line from his wife,
who was formerly Mary Rodehefferg also the great amount of attention which
Rev. Vergil Mertz is receiving from his small congregation, which reminds
meg Edward Musser is the pastor of our church with Gertrude Smith as his
first organist and Anna Ruth Gebhart, director of the choir.
Did we understand you to say that Kurt Mueller is the head physician
at the Airdale hospital and Helen llice his head nurse? lly the way, we hear
that Caroline Elshoff left for that hospital because of serious injuries she re-
ceived in an automobile accident which occurred when she, Mary Holtcamp,
Roy Bauer, and Richard Brading were hit by the 17 express on the B. Sz O.
VVhile skimming the newspaper we noticed that Loren Stiener, a prom-
inent lawyer, had just won his case on the Settlemire divorce suit. Mrs. Set-
tlemire was formerly Lucile Schnell. Glancing down we saw in the want
column that Albert lierlet, a wealthy farmer, had one of his largest farms for
sale, advertised by Alfred Roediger, his superilnitendent of affairs.
VYe wish you might have enjoyed the production of "Seniorita Rilla"
with us, in which Thelma Tobias took the leading role supported by the fol-
lowing: Norma Miley, Miriam Rable, Cienelle Schaffer, Charles Knost, Roan-
ald Waltz and Melvin lilsass. We are very much interested in this as ,ou
mentioned the fact that it was written by Helen Craft, produced by Vernon
Swink and directed by liernard lfloutz and Rosemond Esser, and the scenery
designed by Mary Smith and Roy Miller.
Perhaps it would interest you to hear that Urdell Blankenbaker and Roy
Craft are touring Europe with their wives Qformerly Mabel Brackney' and
Margaret Darstj respectively.
Isn't it wonderful to hear that one of our old class mates, namely Vergil
Stewart, was elected president of the United States and we now hear that he
has chosen Regina johnson as his Secretary of State. You know it was
quite a coincidence that not long ago, out of mere curiosity, we visited a clair-
voyant and he predicted that: he also told us that he could see Elizabeth
Swink and Mabel Frische as missionaries to a foreign countryg Gerald Waltz,
the owner of a large department store in Chicagog Marjorie Kentner, Ruth
Klug and Mabel Coil as owners of a large beauty parlor in San Francisco,
Luella Elsass and Helen Ilonnoront as school teachers in their home town,
Marie Merkle and Marvin Boyer happily married and' residing in Botkinsg

Edythe Smith, Delma Roberts, and Leona Seitz had won fame as movie ac-
tresses and are residing in Hollywood: Lucille Alter and Eloise Hamilton as
instructors of Physical culture in Miami University. This may be trivial to
you but it greatly impressed us.
Have you read Mary Howells latest novel? The scene of this novel, so
she tells us, is laid at her country home on the Hudson and two of the char-
acters prove to be none other than Sylvia Hoopingarner and Mildred Cornell.
Her book was put through the Chicago publishing house which is owned by
Carl Cleaves, XVilbur South and Leo Stoll.
Leonard Drexler has just patented his fourteenth invention. In one of
his recent articles in a late magazine he states that much of his success is due
to the valuable assistance of Roy Shaffer and Earl Rohrbacher.
XVe were not astonished to hear of the generosity of Mary Koehl, Hilda
Kali, Lorena Feil, and Anne Rinehart who are doing charity work in the slum
districts of your city. They are greatly aided by Vernon VVeimert, a great
financier, and Rhoena Spees, who plans the workers' daily routine. Louella
VVheeler and Isabelle NVhetstone are her untiring steniographers.
Orvel Killian, America's greatest athlete, accompanied by his wife nee
Gladys Hastings, has sailed for Europe to take part in the Olympian games.
Lady Lydia DeLong, wife of Duke Kridersville, will receive Mr. and Mrs.
Killian at her palace in Allenburg. Isn't that lovely? VVouldn't it be splens-
did if we could visit Lydia sometime?
Oh yes, Arthur and Harvey McPheron have gone out west anid bought a
large ranch. We almost envy them for as you well know it's always been
our desire to go west.
Pauline Pitthan has become a leading societ: lady in old New York. I
think you also mentioned the fact that you met Lillian Morscheck While you
were touring Europe, and right now we want to congratulate you and Mr.
Turnbull, tell your husband we know what a lucky man he is.
Don't forget that we love to receive your niewsy letters.

JU IOR ROLL
Eleven years ago, l should say, old Father Time said to VVisdom, "T am
very much disappointed with you! You claim to know so much why don't
you turn out some students to exceed all those procedingf' This set old
Vlfisdom thinking, and, scratching his old grey head, he replied, "I haven"t
been filling my place lately, l'll admit, so to please you, I will graduate in
twelve years the best class of high school students that was ever produced."
Old XVisdom began right away with our class. He took us through the
basement of "Knowledge" known as the eight grades. Wle were all excited
one September three years ago when father VVisdom told us we would take
the elevator to the first floor of high school. There was much more on this floor
floor than in the basement of this large building. VVe stayed on this floor
one whole year, examining the different scenes: basketball, football, orches-
tra, glee clubs, and frequently lending a helping hand-for XVE were needed.
Our boys responded to the call from Moulton and our girls supplied them
Father Wisdom led us safely to the next floor the next September to ini-
tiate us as Sophomores. We now had much confidence in ourselves as well
as VVisdom. A few of our boys entered the ball teams and succeeded. Our
girls entered the glee cluxbl, and both boys and girls enrolled themselves in the
orchestra. NVe were also represented in the High School Band and if we had
not lent a helping hand to the track meet, Blume High would never have
carried the silver cup home. Freshmen as well as Seniors looked up to us and
breathed under their breaths, 'flf only we knew so much."
Vlfe are now Juniors residing on the third floor of "Knowledge" where
VVisdom guided us safely, as he did so he muttered, "They have not disap-
pointed me yet and I do not think they will for they are made of material that
will stick." This year we have worked diligently and always looked up to the
next floor with high hopes of occupying it next year. Many of us are striv-
ing with a Business Course while others are conquering Latin or French. Our
boys were successful, as we always were in anything we undertook, in bas-
ketball and football. The orchestra would not be complete without our mu-
sicians and the operetta "Polished Pebbles" would have been a failure had
not two of our girls taken the leading parts. The High School Band also is
known far and wide for its talented "Junior Members."
Old NVisdom and Father Time are proud of us, for we have more than
fulfilled their hopes, only a few of our class having dropped out and the rest
striving on with unceasing toil. NVe long to reach the next floor but we will
not stop with thatg old Wlisdom will lead us on to the land of our hopes call-

SOPHOIVIORE CLASS HISTORY
On that September morn, two years ago, the best Freshman class entered
the portals of Blume High School. VVe were not exceedingly large in quan-
tity but high in quality. VVe soon astonished the upper classes by our knowl-
edge and progressiveness in both athletics and studies. All through the year
we kept up our reputation and beginning our Sophomore course, we develop-
ed anew our energy and enthusiasm.
NVe did not lose our merits. VV'e shone especially in athletics. Own the
girl's basketball team all were Sophomores but one. The boys, too, showed
the same superiority and won high honors on both track and football field.
But our accomplishmevnts were not all confined to sports. For dramatic
ability and music one should have come to our class for the leading roles to
have them enacted with exceptional ability. In glee club work and in programs
our musicians found great favor. One of the best accomplishments of the
class was the Parasite, a school paper, edited mainly by Sophomores and pub-
lished once a week in a local paper.
On the whole we were always in for fun, adopting any plain. for the
amusement of ourselves or our fellow classmates. VVe radiated kindness and
Congeniality to our friends and respect to our teachers.
In the coming years we hope to do our best. There will be new fields to
conquer, new battles to be fought, and new honors to be gained. We leave
the memory of the Sophomore class of Blume High School neitlher blotted
nor stained, and as the poet, Nlfhittier, said,
"Another hand is beckoning us,
Another call is given."
We go on.

And gazed at the swinging door,
They rushed in at the entrance
Never to leave any more.

And filled to the brim with pride,

FRESHIVIE CLASS HISTGRY
It was in the fall of 1921, one hundred and twenty-four eager, ambitious
freshmen took their first steps toward their high school career. VVe must
confess we were very timid and afraid to do anythi-nfg for fear of being laughed
,atg but as time went on, we became accustomed to the rules and regulations,
and were ready for hard work. VVe can truly say about our class, what is
best to be said about ainiy class, that it has done well in school although it has
been here only a year. VVe do not intend to stop here, but expect to make
the best time of our life the next three years. We appreciate the opportuni-
ties offered us and hope to use them to the best of our ability. VVill we suc-
ceed? We surely will if our work progresses as it has.
Some of our freshmen have wo-n very prominent places in the different
activities. In basket ball we achieved no little successg we reached the height
of our ambitions when we won the game with the Sophomores. In foot-ball,
too, we made a name for ourselves, two of our members having done excel-
lent work on -the team. Nor were our labors confined to physical feats, onlyg
We contributed no small part toward the success of musical organizations,
such as the glee club and orchestra. NVe can rightly say that there are few,
if any, slackers in our class. W'e expect to keep on successfully, and in the
enid leave Blume High knowing the victory has been ours.

BLUME HIGH CLASSICAL CLUB
One of the new organizations of Blume High School is the Blume High
Classical Club, of which all present and former Latin students are eligible
for membership. The purpose of this club, which meets every alternate
Thursday of the month, is to stimulate the interest of the Latin students in
the language, customs a.nd mythology of old Greece and Rome. The pro-
grams of the club, given at the meetings, are always helpful and instructive
along one of these three lines. The architecture, language, customs and dress
of these ancient, but cultured countries have been quite thoroughly discussed
at the various club meetings throughout the year.
, The second purpose for which this club was organized was to secure a
better spirit of cooperation, and to, stimulate social intercourse among the
members of the various classes. The "eats', served at the close of the meet-
ings certainly aided in carrying into effect this latter purpose.
Latin songs were one of the unique features of these programs and added
much to create an "atmosphere" in which we would enjoy the beautiful myths
and classical dances of these ancient countries of Greece and Rome. Latin
games, too, were enjoyed at these meetings.
So far this club- has been a wonderful success. Those who first scoffed at
the idea of interesting the children in a "dead" language, have been 1nade to
sit up and take notice for every member of the club is bubbling over with en-
thusiasm and anxious to see this club live and flourish. Since We first organ-
ized many new names have been added to our roll.
Among the various things the club intends to sponsor in the future are,
a picture show with a free matinee for school children, a Latin play entitled
"A Roman NVedding", in which the religious and civil ceremonies of Rome
will be portrayed, and a picnic at which games of Greece and Rome will be
This club is one of the organizations which show the progressive spirit
of our high school, and will, no doubt, accomplish much in developing our
Latin course and our interest in that splendid language Latin.
HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
Harkl Listen to us! Wie, the homemakers of the future, organized
January 23, 1922, under the snappy name "Home Economics Club." We have
eighty members enrolled in this much needed club. VVe all enjoy to the high-
est extent our meetings, which are held in the auditorium of Blume High,
every alternate Tuesday noon. The members always look forward with an-
ticipation to these meetings, and they have a real reason for doing so too, as
perfectly delicious lunches are served and many helpful "household hints" are
exchanged. Oh yes these girls know what real helpful "household hints" are,
thanks to their efficient teachers, Miss Schmidt and Miss Dakin.
This club shows the really progressive spirit of the school and proves how
really in earnest our girls are to meet the high, efficient standards of the
present day American housewife. They eagerly plan for all their events and
always have a great success in anything they undertake. A great deal of the
success the girls have had in carrying on their club is due to their efficient
officers, and the cooperative spirit that exists among the girls.
The purposes of this club are, first, to keep the interest of those girls who
have finished their school work in Home Economics alive and active, and
secondly to stimulate social intercourse among the girls. The club has suc-
ceeded well in its purposes. Long may it last.

Une bright sunny afternoon a group of high spirited, energetic, and en-
thusiastic boys assembled in the reading room for the purpose of organizing
a club which would help to make lllume lligh a better school. The result of
this meeting was the formation of the Boosterls club, the first of its kind at
Blume High. 'llhe Club was composed of the school's best boy students and
with its splendid leaders many line things have been accomplished this year.
The purpose of the lloosterls club was to keep the school spirit up to par,
boost all good movements that would lielp the school or city, and try to se-
cure a gymnasium and public library. .-Xlso the club has done everything
within its power to give Blume High the best athletic teams in this section
of Ohio. Many things have not been finished by the club due to the late
start, but it is hoped that the organization will be a permanent one at Blume

"The Rejuvenation of .Xunt Mary" was the play given lay the juniors, Sophomores
and Freshmen of Blume High School on March 24, at the Brown Theater. The Li-
brary fund was greatly depleted and the iuirpose of the play was to replenish it.
The play is a comedy in three acts, written hy .Xnne XVarner. lt clearly illustrates
What a trip to New York and a taste of city lite will do for a typical little country wo-
man. On her return to the country she is dissatisfied with the quiet life and quickly
plans to return and make the city her permanent home.
The play was given under the direction of Miss Naomi Caldwell and the success is
due to her untiring efforts and the cooperation she received.

Football made it's first appearance in Blume l-ligh School this year and the school
was very fortunate in securing the excellent coaching of Judge R. E. Boesel and Dr.
G., B. Faulder both of whom were college stars. These men developed a wonderful
team from boys that were practically inexperienced.
ST. MARYS VS. WAPAK
The first game was played with St. Marys on our own field. Our boys played a
splendid game and at the end of the third quarter the score was U-0, despite the fact
that our boys were playing rings around them. In the last quarter old Dame Fortune
smiled upon St. Marys and the visitors were victorious with the score 19-U.
SIDNEY VS. WAPAK
The second game was with the strong Sidney eleven and we were more fortun-
ate. Blume liigh eleven started off with a rush and in a few m.inutes they had Sidney's
line, torn cpen and our star half-back "Tuffy" Lechner scored our first touchdown.
After this we scored at will and when the game ended the score was 26-7. .
WAPAK VS. LIM'A
This game was played at Lima with Lima South High. As it had rained the Week
preceding the game, it was impossible to practice and it was thought that the game
would be called off. But due to some mismanagement it was not. VVl1en the boys en-
tered the field they waded mud and water almost to their ankles, but still they played
the game. They were defeated 68-0.
WAPAK VS. ST. MARYS
Everyone looked forward to this game very much. The band and about two hun-
dred and fifty rooters traveled to our neighboring city expecting to take them into camp
but our boys played their worst game of the season, and were defeated by the score of
HIGH SCHOOL VS. CITY TEAM
Blume High team played its last game with the-Citytteam and showed what they
were made of by defeating them 13-6.
PROSPECTS FOR 1922
The prospects for an excellent team for the coming year are very bright. We have,
with the exception of three players, the same team we had this year. With an extra
year of coaching we should have a team that will be a hard proposition to beat.

playing such teams as Dayton, Stivcrs. Springfield, and Hamilton.
WAPAK VS. DELPHOS-DEC. 23RD
On this date our boys visited Defphos and were engaged in a battle with the fast

Lima forged ahead and the result was 23-18 in their favor.

This was one game that we were confident of winning, but were doomed to disap-
pointment for we lost by the score of 16-28.
WAPAK VS. ST. MARYS
This was the game of games and our boys after a week of hard practice journeyed
to St. Marys accompanied by about one hundred and fifty rooters. The game was
fast and close and at the end of the first half we lead 9-3, but in the second ihalf they
came back strong and tied the score. The time was extended five minutes in which
our opponents made a foul basket and we a field basket which ended the game 21-22
in Wapak's favor.
WAPAK VS. OTTAWA-FEB. 24TH
After three weeks rest the team went to Ottawa where they found
the slippriest floor in the state. Being unaccustomed to such a floor they were unable
to compete satisfactorily. VVe lost the game with the score 38-6.
WAPAK VS. NEW HAMPSHIRE
This was the only appearance of the second team this season. lt was a hard game
and was played on a small floor which accounts for the small score. Wapak won 13-5.

ADVICE TO JU l0R
llark, juniors-XYe address you
And if 'tis advice you would seek
Our thoughts on this matter we gladly will
Now listen while we speak!
'lthe best advice we can give to you
ls to study and try to succeed.
lJon't hang' around in the study hall
And act like you want to be freed.
lJon't giggle and whisper and "act up"
We never did you see
,-Xnd we put ourselves up as a model
Un which we know youll agree.
l7on't ask to speak too many times
Ur the teachers will find you out
And then the time "oh, sad to tell"
XYhen the teachers will bawl you out.
Don't interrupt when a Senior speaks
And shows his knowledge profound,
But sit in silence and gaze at one
XN'ho. so to speak, knows his ground.
Don't play hookey, for that is wrong
And the penalty is severe,
XYe've had experience along this line,
And the price we paid was too dear.
fl nd now that we've told you what not to do
We will leave the rest with you.
llut use your rights as they ought to be used
And we're sure that you will get through.

WHY JOSIAH WAS HENPECKED
The boys had grown a little tired of old Professor jinkls lengthy sermons
at chapel, so they decided to try their hand at playing a prank on the old
gentleman. Accordingly, they pasted every other two sheets of his Bible to-
gether, and awaited results.
Next morning he began: "Now Vlosiah took unto himself a wife of the
daughters of Ilelialf' C'Turns leafj "She was eighteen cubits in height and
ten cubits in breadth. fPause, and careful scrutinfy of former page.j
Then he began again. "Now Josiah took unto himself a wife of the
daughters of Belial. She was eighteen cubits in height, and ten cubits in
breadth and was pitched within and without-" CPainful pause, and sounds
of subdued mirthj
Then the Professor looked again at the former page in perplexity, and
said, "Young gentlemen, I can only add that man is fearfully and Wonderfully
made, and-woman also !', N
Eugene XVood and Avary Stone were standing on a street corner. Along
came Flora Flarida with a 'very short skirt on. VVood turned to Stone, and
Stone turned to XN'ood and both turned to rubber.
Louella Elsass-"Vernon, I must go in now."
Vernon-"Please stay a minute longer, dear."
Louellae"A minute, well at your rate, I'd stand here two hours before
you would kiss me."
Here's to the
Girl that is
Mine, all mine.
She drinks, and
She bets, and
Sometimes, I'm told,
She goes out
That she's mine
