It was all the result of a violent dis- cussion over at Tomlinson's, during the intermission at eleven o'clock. Jones held that four miles an hour was an easy walking gait. Ryan and Gray said it wasn't. 'UI tell you, said the latter, When you are doing better than three and a half, you are hitting her up pretty well, and you' couldn't keep it up for any length of time. Don't you remember, Jim, we timed ourselves last fall when we walked down to Gordon Park to foot- ball practice? Yes, and we went at a pretty good pace, too, added Ryan. U That was probably after that East Tech game when you were down-hearted and all bruised up after that twenty to nothing defeat, Jones explained. NUn- der those circumstances it would un- doubtedly take you an hour to walk a mile. No'it wasn't anything of the kind, we're not like you, and we were not down-hearted and all bruised up after that East Tech game, returned Gray. No, sir, you couldn't walk four hours that pace to save your neck. 'tI'm betting I could, Jones replied, I have done it often while out shoot- ing. I dare say you thought so, have you ever tried it at a measured stretch? No, but I can guess at about what rate I am walking, and four miles an hour is a good easy swing. I'll bet you a V that I can walk sixteen miles in four hoursf, I'll take that, answered Ryan promptly. So will I if you oifer the same, said Gray. Yes, I'll bet you too, said Jones. Just then Bill Bailey came in giving the door a thump as he opened it. NVhat are you fellows betting on now? he asked, Jones thinks that he ca.n walk six- teen miles in four hours, answered Ryan, and we each have tive dollars worth of opinion that he can't. lVhat do you think about it? I don 't know, he is a pretty fast man. THE BLUE Is it to be on a cinder track or over an ordinary road? That would be a great difference. Have you any fond hope. asked Jones, that I am going to make a Roman holiday of myself for the benefit of the whole community? I am sure that is what you would like. You would be out there with a brass band. No, my friend, I ask no advantages. I am quite willing to take my chances on any ordi- nary road and in ordinary walking clothes. 123, Extraordinary English knickerboek- ers, you mean, corrected Bill Bailey. You can take the Lake Shore Boule- vard to Willoughby, suggested Ryan, that is a good road and you can't get lost. It is but twelve miles, but if you walk it in three hours, we'll call it square. Yes, I know that road, I have driven over it many times in the machine. Out beyond Euclid Beach, Villa Angela, iVil- loughbeach, and all those places? All right, I'll take that road. Bill Bailey reflected a moment. I think, he admitted, with a shake of his head, that it can certainly be 'done by any .man with strength and sand. but Jones canlt do it. I'll tell you what, old scout, de- clared Jones, indignantly, 'iI'll bet you ten dollars on the event. No, I won't go you ten, because I don't believe in betting so much on a certainty. Besides you are hard up now, and you would undoubtedly borrow from me the money with which you 'd pay your bet. I can't afford to have you do that, but I will contribute a five like the rest to the purse. It was arranged that Jones should choose his day, but he was to give them notice of it on the morning which he .vw ..N. .,..- ..,-7-.-.---YW . .. H AND GOLQD 5 started. Just then the bell rang and Jones and Gray went to their classes. When they had gone, Bailey let out a great ery of joy. He can do it easily, I know, he said. Nile sha.ll lose our money, but, by gosh, it will be worth the price. XVe must get the other fellow to bet with him so he won't back out. Let 'S go and get ready for it at once. XYhat do you 1nean?i' asked Ryan, what are you going to do? Can't you guess, Jim, you Irishman? Come on, I'll tell you, and they went up Blade Park towards the printer's. Three or four days after this Jones ap- peared in his walking breeches and big Scotch stockings, and announced he was going to start. He would leave the school at one o'eloek and arrive in XVilloughby at four o'clock on that afternoon. B-yan and Gray said that they might be at the finish to receive him, if they found nothing better to do, otherwise he could time himself. Both of these boys had jobs at the corner store and had to work until one-thirty so that they were unable to see him start. Bailey also had an en- gagement with the dentist which he really ought not to break. He would endeavor to be at the finish, however, to carry him home. E Promptly at one Jones left the school with a swinging stride, and struck up toward his goal. He was in fine form and spirits, and had chosen his day well. It was one of those glorious November days when a man can do anything, when the northwest breeze fills your lungs and swells your chest into a balloon that seems to lift you clear oif your feet. On such a day the twelve miles ahead of him seemed nothing to Jones, and he sprang along overiiowing with spirits. The discoveries along the road seemed to him more beautiful and interesting than M' .-, 6- 6 EAST HIGH SCHOOL ever before. Washington he thought might take command of an army four or five times a da.y in such weather. Jones reached Euclid Beach well ahead of time. To his annoyance he saw the road c1'owded, principally with small boys. Something or other must have happened, he thought. A dog fight, or runaway, or something. If the attrac- tion is still on, I am all right, if not, I shall have to run the gauntlet. He soon found that his latter appre- hension was the true one, and that he was in for just that kind of entertain- ment. A great cheer went up as he ap- proached, and a body of happy children ran forward to meet him. They closed in all around and escorted him along the main road between two lines of shouting people. - Hey, mister, give ussomeli' Go on, you 'll do it, good boy, 'Wigseyf' VVhen 're yer goin' to fork 'em out?,' Rats, dat ain't him, dat fancy guy is one o' dem high school guys. Will yer look at de jay? Get on to de legs. VVhat's he got 'em wrapped up in, shawls? Naw, carpets. Say, mis- ter, yer pants is got caught inside your socks. I guess dem is English, yer know. Ain't yer going to give us no gum? A-ah, let 'm alone, he ain't nothin' but one o' them stoodent jays. He ain 't no winged wonder, a-ah! The above was what Jones enjoyed as he passed Euclid Beach. He finally shook oif his pursuers, and breathed freely again for about five minutes as he sat down to rest. VVhile he sat there a ma- chine pulled up in front of him. He knew the man who was at the wheel and called to him, Hullo, Jones, came the recog- nition, what are you doing out here? Off on a tramp, a glorious day for exercise, isn't it? 'iYes, you have no idea how I enjoy this ride. 'Well, good-by, I have got to hurry along, I am walking against time. Jones strode on from bad to worse, for he was now about to pass Villa Angela. the girls' seminary. Here there was a large group of the students of the institu- tion by the roadside. Jones had never before been afflicted with bashfulness, and did not acknowledge that he was troubled in that way now, but he felt peculiarly alone, and would have given much for another, man or just a few less girls. By the terms of his bet he could not run any of the way, but a giggle al- most made him throw up the stakes and break the pace. By a great effort, how- ever, he braced up, and even smiled cheer- fully. He made an inward resolution never to look at a girl again. He strode on again through Euclid Village. Nottingham, XVilloughbeach and others, and to his horror he found in each town the same gathering, and went through the same ordeal that he had re- ceived before. Had he gone to work and picked out a public holiday? No, he was sure it was not that, and the fact that it was Saturday. and the schools had there- fore turned their swarms loose to the world, would not account for all the crowd in every village. Perhaps there was an extra election going on in that country. What puzzled him most, how- ever. was that all of the children expect- ed something of him besides mere amuse- ment, and a pitiable example of dress. Vlihen more than half way, he stopped to speak with a farmer leaning over the fence by the roadf The old farmer looked at Jones with wonder and interest, but did not think it necessary, as had the good citizens of the factory towns. to heap scorn and derision on de boob. He THE BLUE bowed to the Wayfarer as he would to any well-behaved stranger. Good afternoon, said Jones, gratefl for this drop of human kindness. Ca you tell me, sir, how far it is to VVillough- by? VVa-al, about four miles or more, thefy say. There's a car goes pretty soon, ye won't find it so far in the cars. Oh, I'm going to walk it, explained Jones with a smile. 'fThat's a powerful long walk, young man. How far ye come already? ' ' From Cleveland. Gosh! VVell, your legs is young and pretty long, but ye must want suthin' to do pretty bad. Be ye broke or anythin '? Want anythin' to eat? No thanks, I am walking for fun, try- ing to do it on time, you see. !3 'nlllebbe you 're advertisin' suthin'? Oh, I want to know! Be you the winged wonder or somethin' I hear tell on jest now? ' A light began to glimmer in Jones' mind. He had ben asked several times if he was the winged wonder. but had paid no attention to the question, suppos- ing that it was merely a form of public wit. Now it was asked of him in perfect good faith. No.,' he answered his friendly ques- tion, not intentionally. but I am begin- ning now to suspect that I am occupying some such position. I am much obliged to you for your information. I must move move along now. Good day, sir, guess ye 'll want a heap o' corn-plasters when ye git to XVillough- ,ix by Not with these stoekingsf, laughed Jones, glad of an oportunity to justify his clothes, they're thick and soft. great things to walk in. I f'They be eh? VVell, I kinder thought AND GOLD 7 they wasn't just for looks. I donit want none today, though, good day. Good-by, and Jones went on, feeling sure that the old man still suspected him at least of peddling footgear. Just before the end of his tramp he sat down for a rest on an inviting fence rail. He had plenty of time to spare, but the grassy bank might have kept him too long and made him stiff. Oh, how pleasant the three-cornered rail did feel! A piece of paper blew across the road and whirled up in his face. It was a hand bill of some sort, he remembered now having seen several of them along the way, but had picked up' none. He caught this one and turned it over. This is what he read: I-Ie is Coming Wait for him! Watch for him! The Winged Wonder. He is matched to walk twelve miles to- day for an enormous purse. He holds world records for distance walking. He will wear one of our custom-made Lon- don suits unexcelled for outdoor Wear and stylish appearance. They are all the rage in England and therefore sure to be popular here. He will also distribute tops and marbles to the boys and chewing-gum to the girls. Watch for him, everybody, he will be here soon, and will follow this road. Come, out girls! - Come out, boys! N ow is your chance Wait, Watch for the Winged Wonder His glimmer dawned to a great light. He jumped up and hurried along the re- maining mile or two as fast as his weary legs would go. There was no crowd awaiting for him on the outskirts of Wil- -I'-1 - L. 8 EAST I-IIGI-I.SCHO0L loughby, and for a few minutes he hoped that he was going at least to finish in peace. Vain hope! As he approached the heart of the city he saw a crowd of people and heard the strains of a brass band. On turning the corner he was received with a great shout. Then he saw a. sight that explained it all. ' In front of the town hall a float had been drawn up. In it were a delegation of Jones'.friends and a band. Bill Bailey was standing shouting on all sides to the people of the village, 'announcing his ar- rival. What sort of a fool circus are you trying to make of yourselves? asked Jones. A grand one, old man, and you have been the elephant, the shining star of the whole show. replied Bailey. You will find lemonade in the ambulance. You have won your money hand- somely. Jones. acknowledged Ryan, and we all accept with pleasure your kind 1IlV1l31lZ1O1'1 to dinner. GOING OVER THERE. By Elizabeth Harrold. ' It was down at the old Hamburg-Arnen ican pier in Hoboken. The Kron Prinz Friedrich Vtlilhelm lay at her berth with her rusty iron sides towering above the freight houses. The Kron-Prinz, until recently serving the Huns, was now to do her bit for Uncle Sam. Drays rattled to and fro over the rough cobblestones, gang bosses, big rough men, were calling their orders, and the huge derrick booms fore and aft, were reach- ing out and grabbing up great boxes and sending them soaring skyward with a. grating and squeaking of the blocks, and then dropping them with a dull thud and a cloud of iron rust into the hold. Swarms of dingy, sweating negroes kept up a thundering din rolling in barrels and running up the gang-planks with hand- trucks loaded with boxes and disappear- ing into the bowels of the vessel. They were all a roarin' away, De las' box, de las' box. ' She was an inspiringsiglit as she lay there in the hazy atmosphere with the thick black smoke rolling slowly out of her stacks, and way up high on her after mast her riding light twinkling now wand then through the dusk. The derricks stopped squeaking, and the last of the sweating negroes came tumbling out of the boat. Dangi Dang, the live minute warning signal sounded, and members of the crew came straggling aboard with their belongings tucked under their arms. , Dangl An oiflcer on the stern bridge called out, Cast off those stern lines. A single deep 110tB on the siren. The little tug on the stern started churning up the water and it rushed past the rusty plates of the big steamer in a miniature rapid. C-how,-chow,-chow, a myriad of sparks Went fiying up and came down all over the surface of the water, winked and were gone. The great ship slipped out into the river, straightened herself, and went swinging past out of sight. The ship was clipping along at a good rate, her decks rose and fell steadily. The last of Long Island was being swal- lowed up in the gathering gloom, and a low riding steamer, very indistinct, was plowing along inward bound. She went swishing past and the gloom seemed to be thicker and glooinier where she was with a few twinkling lights scattered in it THE BLUE and her riding light high above, like a star. Now everything was gloom again and only the swishing of the water and the throbbing of the engines broke the silence. On the stern deck in the glow of a cabin light stood a young man leaning against the after rail taking his last view of the twinkling lights, and crying softly to himself. His hat was removed, he was rather handsome, with sharp, clear-cut features and deepest penetrating eyes. Suddenly a slinking figure slid out of the shadows and pressed something. into his hand. The figure shrunk back. The young man started forward but the per- son had gone. Then he unfolded the something and read, We've gummed it, old boy. 'We're trapped. It's too far to swim. NVhat can we do? Meet me near forward hatch, S A. MW The young man was amazed. Wliat could this mean? He read it over several times. Surely someone had mistaken him. As he slowly regained his sensesghe also began to get an inspiration. It com- menced to dawn upon him that something was up. What should he do? Tell the captain? He wanted to, but suppose that it should turn out to be a tizzle. Woiildn't he be the laughing stock though! And that's the Way things usually turned out with him. He 'd keep his eyes open any- how. All night long he dreamed and imagined everything from Blaekhanders to German spies. He wished he was home in bed now. The next morning he slid quietlydown onto the freight deck and made his way cautiously toward the forward hatch. As he drew near he noticed a crouched figure over in among the piles near the mast. He slipped himself cautiously back be- AND GOLD - 9 hind a pile of boxes to have a look. He looked and looked for some time. Present- ly in glided another figure. Both were ap- parently members of the crew. Does this look like eight bells? said the crouching one in a hoarse whisper. Does this look like eight bells? re- peated the other. c'What ya talkin' about? . Didn't I say eight bells las' night? Didn 't ya say eight bells las' night? How do I know what ya said? Well, didn't ya read that note? NVhat note? XVhat note! Good land, man, don't tell me that I didn 't give you thatnote las' night? N No, you didn't give me no note. Oh, a kind of groan escaped him. YVell was that your ghost standing by the aft rail or was I dreamin'? Good Lord, if that machine doesn't get us, they will, the water isn't eold and we're right in the steamer track. She's set for nine o'cloek and we couldn't move that pile in a month of Sundays. Both men made a break for the half open freight door, grabbed life rings and jumped. Out slid the young man from the pile of boxes, up the companionway three steps at a time and up to the forecastle. The captain was just emerging from his stateroom. '4Captain, for heaven sakes send a crew of men into the hold or we'll be pickin' harps within fifteen minutes! 'WVhat's the trouble, young man? the captain inquired anxiously. There,s a time bomb among the pile of boxes on the freight deck by the for- ward mast. It's timed for nine! The next thing t.here was a crew of men working like mad heaving the boxes out through the freight doors. im, 10 EAST HIGH SCHOOL The last of the pile splashed into the seaf Bang! Every man went Hat like buckwheat before a storm. The ship rolled heavily. The sea was strewn with splintered wood. John, said the captain, we're all mighty thankful to you. Well, I wish I were home, John re- marked. , A CHANGE IN LUCK. By Earl W. Tite. ' Shorty Lewis is through, and I don't blame him. I say that when a man gets uncertain about death and taxes, it's time to hunt the way out, and that 's what Shorty has done. They 's some fellows as can roll a dol- lar down the street and it will come rollin' back with five or six more little iron men. Not so with Shorty. If Shorty was to bet it would snow in Alaska next winter, men would drop dead from the heat on Janu- ary first in Nome. Why, with Shorty's luck, John D. could lose his pile in twenty minutes, matching pennies. I dropped into the Tonsorial Arcade about a month ago, and there sat the usually smiling Shorty with his lower lip hanging down like a catcheris chest pro- tector. He that usually was so smiley was a life size picture of Gloomy Gus. The Arcade is across from our news- paper office. Sam Black, the owner, de- pends on the boys from the ofdce for his trade, and in turn offers a convenient hang-out. A . 'Shorty is the star barber of the place, and when he ain't pushing some feller's whiskers back in his face he 's tendin' the pool table or pushin' dried, rope over the counter in the back part of the shack. Outside o' that Shorty's as busy as an undertaker in a cannibal settlement. No woman never fought to prepare three squares a day for Shorty, so Shorty donated his money to chance. He played the worst game of poker I ever see, he was unlucky at craps, and if he 'bet on a horse, the old harness-rack would pull a Russian retreat on the home stretch. How- ever, Shorty managed to wear a face as bright as a Mexican's shirt with all his natural hard luck. Trouble', wasn't part of Shorty 's vocabulary, and that is why his gloom was so noticeable. Shorty said he was sick, but when I said I guessed the pain was mostly in his pocket-book, he admitted it. He said l16,d got to the' point where a dollar was something like a ghost, a thing you could see but not feel. Upon inquiry he said he hadn't been robbed. No, he said, I sat into a poker game with them eggs in th' press room once too many times. Since I been puddlin' in that game, I been broke more times 'n your speed laws. Last night was the end of the world. I was Belgium and them six guys was Germany. Say, with their luck I could sell submarines to the Swiss government. 'N now I'm in debt, too. ' We was still figgerin' how we could pull him out of that hole when in comes Eddy Blake, with excitement stickin' out on him like tags on a ten dollar suit. After some hemmin' and stallin' We found out that he had a sure tip on Non- skid. Eddy and his sure thing didn't create much of a stir at Hrst, but after awhile-we started to listen to his ceaseless chatter. It seemed that the book-makers were oiering about fifteen to one odds, THE BLUE and odds at the track would be about twenty to one. Pretty soon we got to talkin' money, an' that led to the question as to who was to do our p1acin'. Just then in comes Cy Brady. Cy was our printer. He 's some- wheres between thirty and sixty, can look either, and admits both. The only time there 's any hair on his head is when he puts a brush on it. But then overlookin' a few faults, Cy is a good sport. X Cy wanted to know what the mass meet- ing was about, and after Eddy had ex- plained it over again, Cy admitted it read well. Slip me the roll, says Cy, Nan' I'll do the rest. ' So we a.greed to pass the word around and meet at the Arcade that night with all the money we could raise. About eight, the boys began to come in, and in about a half hour the crowd was there, and Cy had his pencil and pad ready to keep track of what he took in. The boys had looked up the field pretty well and felt that at least they had a fightin' chance. There was Deadwood, May First,, The Snail, No Hope, and The Beetle, not a very hard field for our dark horse. Shorty started the ball a rollin' with fifty plunks. He said he had to pawn his watch and tip the boss for an advance, afore he could raise the dough. Ef I lose, says Shorty, the only thing between me an' the grave is the ride in the hearse, so here 's hopin' I Finally we got Cy started on the eleven o'clock with plenty of advice and instructions, not to set in on any poker games, easy shell guessin' or the likes of them. 4 The races was to be at San Juan, just over the line, and Jimmy Benz who was on the track wire, agreed to send us word A N D G O L D 11 as the race progressed, and Eddy was to get it on the phone from the office. That afternoon was a long one. James XVhit- eomb Schaefer, the brunette porter, went around with onlyfthe whites of his eyes showing. He had ive on the nose. Jus' like the old NVor1d's Series, says Eddy. Nothin' but class to us. Shorty said that his weak heart was going to have an awful strain, but Eddy told him Non-Skid could win with only one bellows. Finally Cy Benz called and we all clustered around the phone. They'rcl oiflu shouts Eddy. Wl1o, the operator? says Shorty. Skid's ahead an' No Hope pressin', shouts Ed. - Non-Skid two lengths ahead at the quarter, was the next news. P, I hope she's a long horse, says Shorty. Three lengths ahead at the half, bubbled Eddyg There's nothin' to do but hall in th' shecklesf' Just as easy as a potato race, says Shorty. No Hope is closin' in, says Eddy. That's more like nature, says Shorty, any time I bet, No Hope is sure to win. This is a horse, ya fool, says Pete Blair. i . Aw, I thought it was a new drink. Skid all alone at the three-quarters. James, you coon, get me a two bit cigar! Don' count yo eggs afore no hen lays, was James IfVhitcomb's breathless reply. ' After a report that the best bet was safe and strong on the home stretch, there was a lull, The man at the office said that he had lost the connection, but would get it again in a jiify. We thought that Cy must have had some money up too, and that he had left the phone in his excitement. 12 EAST HIGH SCHOOL Boys, says Shorty, my old alarum clock is goin, to ring in a minit an' tell me I bin drean1in'. This is a fact, says Ed, Non-Skid was six lengths ahead on the home stretch an' going strong. We kin start countin' now, I reckon. I like to hear th' jingle when I counts, says Shorty. About an hour later a telegram came from Cy. , Eddy tore it open, read it, to himself, then started on it again. Well, says Shorty, can't ya figger out how much ya Won or is it Writ in Spanish? . Ed gave it to Sam to read. Sam thought that the luck was too much for Eddy, so he started in. Here goes, says he. A H 'Vile took a big chance. General Santy Voono had his roll on No Hope, an' when he seen Skid hit tha' home stretch in the lead, he pulled his daily revolution,'an' Skid got shot in the scrape. No Hope dragged in first. We made quite a mis- take.-Cy.' Mistake, howled Shorty, man, it's a calamity. ,N l1e spoke fur us all.

The lflondlke beckoned, we heeded its call, We were all staked out by the end of fall. We were 'way beyond the fron-tier post, Farther than many a lying boast- Far up into the land of nights, Close to the Pole and the North ern Lights. We nearly died that irst year outg 0-ur fight with the cold was a 'bitter bout. It was eighty below for two -months straight, And the Lights were climbing the northern gate. Outside the h-ut, 'twas dead and still: To-ward the end we li-ved by our strength of willi- But we weathered it through and weathered it well A-nd emerged 'nfnscathed from that heatless Hell. Yes, we weathered it th-rough, my pal and I , And tt bound us together with a tempered tie, A tie as true as the God above, For the tie that bout-'nd was purest lo-ve.

Wttln. the passing years, we dug for gold, Aye, and found fit-a wealth un-told. More and more, we were drunk with the staff, Faster we dug, for we haelfnft enough, Deeper and deeper we delved in the earth, Till God only knew how much we were worth. We piled up the dust fin- a great golden- heap, We lamwnted the time that we spent ri-n our sleep. But, at last my pal felt the call of the homeg He said he was longing for newly turned loam, And the call of the birds in the green- leafy trees, The trickle of brooldets,' the buzz-ing of bees. He wanted to see the sun- high. in the sky, J TP' 1 18 EAST HIGH SCHOOL And hear the old rooster's sh-rilly pitched ery. He wanted aga-in to be thoroughly warm, He got so he hated the land of the storm. But, I urged him to wait, to staxy on for a time, For I wanted to stay, w-itho-nt reason or rhyme. So, at last, he remained and we dug for more gold, I with the frenzy of greed as of old, And he just because I had wanted htm to. Ah, his was the love that was truer than true. And then it came, the mine roof gave 'wayl He had said, I'll go down. And he 's nnder tosday.

The war has greatly affected high school and college athletics, but the Senate schools of Cleveland have kept up their activities. The past year athletics at East have not been filled with record-breaking success, yet East does not have to be ashamed of its record. , Wlien the football season opened, only 22 . EAST HIGH SCHOOL Vitantonio and Struggles remained of the team of the previous year. It remained for Coach Morris to build up a. team from green material, and to hinder him further, Struggles played in only three games dur- ing the season. The team, when finally chosen, showed a. defense which was sec- ond to none in the city. East Tech was the only team to score a touchdown against our boys during the entire season. The offense was not powerful, for thebacktield was very light. East opened theiseason at Akron, and defeated Akron VVest when a blocked punt was turned into a touchdown by one of our linesmen. Then came The Battle in the Mud against VVest Tech, ua scoreless tie re- sulting. Two points was enough to trim South in our next game. Civiletto's drop- kicking ability for the second successive year enabled Central to defeat its ancient foe. . University 's highly-tooted team was held at bay at all times, and, despite the fact that the battle was scoreless, East may be proud to have upset the dope so completely. Lincoln was defeated next, and then Glen- ville held East to another scoreless tie. East Tech handed our team its second and worst defeat of the year, and in the final game West enabled East's team to call them- selves the scoreless-tie-wonders again. East Tech won the Senate championship and had the most representatives on the All-Scholastic team. Wennerstrom, East guard, was placed on the All-Scholastic second team. Sweaters were awarded to Blecker, Wennerstrom, Davidson, Lamp- recht, Noble, King, Lindner, Vitantonio, Cooney, Graham, D 'Errico, Manager Blake, and to Heller and Doig, who, although in-' eligible, reported every night and gave the coach considerable help. Heller was elected captain of the 1918 team. Shortly after the close of the football sea- son the call for candidates for the basket- ball team was sent. No veterans reported, graduation and ineligibility being the re- sponsible sources. Our team, greatly changed after February, secured a fifty- fifty break for the season. Lincoln, NVest Tech, South, University, and Shaw went down to defeat at our hands, while Central, East Tech, Commerce, Glenville, and West conquered Coach Morris' proteges. The championship of the Senate was not definitely decided, for East Tech and Cen- tral were tied for the lead, each having suffered one defeat. In accordance with the times when everyone is conserving, no sweaters were given to the players, but Sheppard, Gattozzie, Blecker, Lamprecht, Capt. Wennerstroin, and Sifling received letters. Track is back again to stay. In the Senate track meet held on May 18, East finished fifth. Fifteen points were scored, McCreary winning iirst place in the high jump. Doig, Sheppard, and Price also won places. In looking back over the year's athletic record, we read of no remarkable feats, but we feel sure. that East 's spirit is still as unconquerable as ever, and we can onlv hope that next year will see some champion- ship teams at East.

For all Commencemcnts ' after this, however, forthwith to the end of the war, this idea should be the keynote for the personal decoration of the graduating class, . , The world is intensely interested in agriculture at the present time. Nearly every one is raising something. Hayseeds are raising hay. of course, with wheat as a by-product. Pa is raising weeds in his potato-radish-water 'melon and corn gar- den. Ariny officers are industriously raising auxiliary eyebrows. The Germans. too, are raising 'fcainf' 'With this horticulture absorbing inter- est all about us. one cannot quell'the suspicion that filigreed frocks and stun- ning suits are out of place.

The -Fable of a. Boy that Slumbered Until It Was Too Late. There was once a Mother 's-Only-Boy of the kind that wore his iirst Long Pants when he graduated from Grannnar School. His First Mile Stone had been passed and the eight Laps had been run. And now, as he was about to start. on the iirst of the four Laps that he must ru11 to pass his Second Mile Stone, an Idea struck him. If he took the first three Laps easily, he would have wind enough to finish the fourth Lap with a. Spurt. So his first three years in High School were run, and in every Event he just qualified for the Finale. TllEVJlldg6S thought him foolish and advised hi1n to start his training for the Big Drive early. But he knew betterg why. he was going Stale now. but our Motherls-Only-Boy didn't know the dif- ference between not enough Studying. enough Studying. and too much Studying, although the Judges had explained all that to him. One day when he was out showing off in front of a group of Spectators, he was noticed by a well-known Man-About- School, with the result that he was asked to a Frat meeting. Of course he didn't get in-he was still only a Junior-but his friend introduced him to a few of the choice Girls i11 school, and before longithey had found out that his Hair was brown and was parted in the cent.er and that he wasn't a bad Da.ncer. That was the beginning of his Downfall. He is a Senior now, and our Mother's- Gnly-Boy has become a Sport. for he can blow Rings from an Inhale, play pool and swear. He cuts his Training in the Big Drive for Dances and has learned how to Stall in Recitations. The Judges catch him breaking the Rules of the Contest, and he gets out of one trouble into An- other, but he is perfectly happy. for he thinks the NVorld is laughing with him, rest and cut corners on the last Lap, he still has one more Lap to do, and so has to stay in High School another year. .llnraih I f you'-rc asleep donft wal-it until y0uf're aa Senior to 'wake up. FINAL PAGEANT PERFORMANCE. An invitation for another performance of The Pageant from Mrs. A. D. Baldwin of Mentor. Ohio, was unanimously ac- cepted by the pupils. Special arrangements were made by Mrs. Baldwin for t.he conveyance of the members of The Pageant. A rehearsal was planned for the morning, picnic luncheon. tennis and baseball before the afternoon performance. The proceeds are for the benefit of the Mentor Red Cross. All the members of the original cast were present with the exception of Ronald Brown and Louis Kohn, whose patriotism, we regret to say, did not hold out to the end of the year. f GIRLS' GLEE CLUB. If you happened to be leaving school late on Tuesday. you no doubt heard strains of music issuing from the lunch room. VVell, that is what I am going to explain to you. It was the Girls' Glee Club, and whatls more they were having a spread. All of the girls gathered in the lunch room and enjoyed one of the best feasts that ever existed. But I am leaving out where the music came from. Norma Baker supplied the instrumental part with her ukulele and the rest of us 28 EAST HIGH SCHOOL sang. Mr. Davis gave a farewell speech and Katherine Ryan acted as cheer-leader. Gertrude Jones entertained the crowd with some very witty poems and songs. Another feature on the program was a toast written by Lois Steiner to Mr. Davis. After a Very pleasant social time, the following girls were elected for next year's officers in the Glee Club: Presi- dent, Eudora Krauseg Vice Presi- dent, Eleanor Hansong Secretary. and Treasurer, Ruth Mitchellg and Sibyl Esterly was appointed Librarian. This closed one of the best spreads ever held in East High. V. M. G. 'l8. HAVE YOU BEEN GUILTY? On several occasions during the Third Liberty Loan campaign, orchestras played the i'Marseillaise. At restaur- ants and movie theaters especially, the or- chestras played the anthem, but not once did tl1e audience rise instantly and with- out hesitation. If a man in the service arose, others followed not without seine hesitancy. At times people even con- tinued their eonversation, They did not realize that the Marseillaise is every bit as sacred as our Star Spangled Benner. It is unnecessary to recall how deeply we are indebted to France. But it is necessary to remind the American pub- lie that because of thoughtlessness, it has often been guilty of rudeness which it would not consciously permit. It is as rude to remain sitting during the playing of t11e 4'Marseillaise as to remain seated while The Star Spangled Banner is be- ing played. You constitute a unit of the great American public.

Greig. .Perhaps it was my hard day's work that put me to sleep. Anyway it was un- doubtedly my wife's welsh rarebit that made me dream. Visions danced before me in orderly disorder, and once again the past fantastically played upon my mind. Ah! what a dream. Now, as I have already stated. the visions coming to me were somewhat er- ratic-befitting, of course, the dignity of a welsh rarebit .... It was a class I was now attending. Yes, to be sure, History. There in the front sat Beman. George, I heard him say, 'tTell all you know about the Flat-Sophomore war. George rises slowly to his scat. The Freshman-Sophomore war -er-e, next to the civil war, was the greatest of all conflicts between people of the same race. On the morning of September 14th, 1914. serimmages occurred at an early hour on the entire front, from the first to the third floors. IVar, however, was not officially declared until 8:30 of that morning. At this hour Freshmen forces mobilized in the auditorium, presumedly for a mass attack, but for strategic rea- sons a retreat was made 'into rooms on the first floor. The war lasted for some five months. The Sophomores' chief weapon was gas. After this the scene faded from my view and another took its place. There was a roaring in my ears, a big 'ral1. 'rah, 'rah, East, and the picture of our Hrst football rally was cast. upon the SCPEC11 of my mind. How clearly it all comes back to me again, one of those good old fashioned rallies such as come before the first game of the sea.son. One of our number, at present held in high esteem by all. in a wild scramble for auditorium seats, climbed over the back of his chair. But alas, for that youth, Mr. Lothman espied the deed. Did that boy ever climb over the back of an auditorium chair again? No, the boy did not. Then events appeared to pass rapidly. VVe all looked forward to February, at which time we could properly assume the dignity and respectability of a high school student. By some venturesome girls, hair ribbons were discarded, while some of the more daring of the boys tackled the manipulation of longer trou- sers. Their efforts to look unconcerned failed. Now it was about this same time that calamity almost overtook the classy for the picture that now comes to me is no other than that of the Freshman recep! tion. Not that I would speak disrespect- fully of such a grand and august event, but at the same time slurs were cast upon this social gathering by the Seniors and upper classmen which were the cause of great agony and mental suffering to us first year pupils. However, most of our alarm was needlessg for on the whole, our teachers acted really very nice, consider- ing the temptations they were facing. Besides the time was most profitably spentg for did we not learn to wear rub- bers on a rainy day, and at all costs to bring a good, wholesome lunch from home? February came at last and with it a batch of incubator Flats. W'e derived great pleasure in directing them about the building and, in fact, extending to them all the courtesies due to new pupils. Having now attended high school for some six months, many of us had found the knack of success without study. 30 EAST HIGH SCHOOL In the June CXR11ll11H.tlOI1S'tl1GS6 same clever ones were successfully unsuccess- ful. At this point my reveries underwent violent agitation, coincident -probably with those same examinations. Presently, however, the fanciful musings of the next-our Sophomore-year were upper- most in 1ny mind. This year, perhaps, was not so novel as our Frchman year. We had by this time become sufficiently hardened to the periodic adventof our little yellow report cards to withstand the shock fairly well, Being Sophomores, too, we now helped to fill-and empty- the cotfers of many of our school societies and otherwise indulge in the frivolities befitting the grandeur of our rank. It was about this t.i1ne, as the past now appears to me, that vocational guidance held sway over the school. It is hardly necessary for me to more than mention those days, for you all remember the written themes, the oral themes, and then more themes which the enthusiasm of our teachers was influential in producing. 'When this enthusiasm for vocational guidance had finally reached its apex, wc found in our midst doctors, lawyers, preachers, teachers, nurses, bell boys, steel kings, and musicians. Also-among those who would chase the elusive dollar -we found presidents, Mary Pickfords. and-whitewings. One of the big epochs of our Sophomore year was the entertainment course that proved so successful and enjoyable throughout the winter season. Also, if you will take your memory back that far, it was during this year that we nursed into existence what is now that mighty institution, The Blue and Goldf' Junior Sophomore day was a grand oc- casion, at which time we presented to the school a very useful and overworked machine, called, I believe, a Pathescope. Now into my dream come thoughts of our third year at high school, By this time we felt as if wc were at last coming into our own. The name 'CJunior car- ries with it a dignity and responsibility not to be found in either title of Sopho- more or Flat Things, however. had changed somewhat over the summer holi- days. The probability of having to attend school each day until 3:30 caused a stir of resentment in the hearts of all. And even now as I meditate over this atrocious thought, my recollections are far from pleasant. The probability became a reality. Our groans were unheard, and our plea that, for the sake of our health, we must be dismissed at an earlier hour, fell upon deaf ears. Vifith several hours extra study each day, was it little wonder that we all got the measles? Yes, we all got 'em. Not wishing to speak of the saddcr side upon this festal occasion, you will have to rely on your own memories for the details of this tragedy. In the latter half of this year we were permitted to organize and sign a long document, called, I think, a constitution. Moreover, a few of us even ventured to pay class dues. Having a.cco1nplished this much, The Blue and Gold saw fit to publish a paragraph upon this act. I have good reason, in thinking back, that our career as an organized class has been just as noisy, cominendable, and full of civil strife as any other class on reco1'd. Of course as these reveries come to me thoughts of military drill cannot be barred. Indeed, no! More than ever we were impressed by the truth that 'V'It's good to get up in the morning, but it's nicer to stay in bed. Vile had, too, sev- e1'al military reviews before the mayor and army officials, who declared us to be a first class company of mongrel soldiers. de- THE BLUE Such was our life during the first three years at high school, and as I dream of the past I almost feel again that dazzling ambition to be a senior that we for so l011g had: If we could only be one for an hour, just to see how it feels,--ah, then the height of glory would be attained. Such a time did come. The height of glory was attained, but Gee, it doesnit feel a bit like it ought to, does it? was a com- mon expression for the first tive weeks. This was a year chiefly of joys, al- though the happiness of some was marred by having to carry five subjects. NVe spent many a pleasant moment in deciding the design of our class rings. and to these we looked forward in antici- pation-for were they not the true sym- bol of our bona tide seniorship? Then, too, fantastic apparitions of our class dance play upon my mind. It was a grand affair-grand in its simplicity. And he1'e the class showed remarkably good judgment in having this function in- formal. It was, in fact, of common note that the girls were prettier upon this Oc- casion than upon any previous senior formal. Up to this time, we had a.l1 lived in dread of our turn at rhetorieals. At last the dark clouds of stage fright hov- ered over us. The clouds burst, our turn came. The shaking of knees-the iirst few sentences-the thunder of applause -these are things that will never he for- gotten. The success of our big pageant, in which so many seniors tok part, will be remembered in soemthing more than a fanciful drcamg it will make pages in history. T Then came Class Night on June thc third. Every one was happy. Civil war among the girls as to the shape, color, and AND GOLD 31 size of their graduation clothes had long ceased to bc. We danced. We were told also by some of our friends, both wise and otherwise, how the Past, Present, and Future were treating us, where we came from, and where we were going. Ah! here my dream seems to fade. Everything is hazy. It is going, going, gone. What a dream! tYawni. So you are awake at last? I heard my good wife calling. A Yes-s-s. CYawnj. Bring 111e another welsh rarebit.
