E, the Quill Staff of 1919-20, wish Hrst of all to make
known our policy. The Quill will be published four
times this year. This, our first number, is given over to
the team. The second number will be the Commencement Num-
ber of the mid-year class. The third will be the Easter number
and will be comprised of the literary attainments of the school.
The fourth issue will be the big' number of the year, the June
Each issue will be correct in all figures and the stai will back
all statements which appear in the columns. We will handle no
love affairs, neither will we line up with political parties. NVQ'
will give you in our columns all the good material we can ind
room for. If you are dissatisfied with the Quill, we shall be
glad to hear any criticisms. If you are satisfied, We should like
to know that also. The Quill is not a paper of the staff alone
but of the whole school and therefore you should help toward
making it a success. We have done our best,--you can do wonders
if you boost for it.
A EWGIWDIIRC to the Returned Soldiers and Sailors
O YOU, the boys who have represented East High by your
services in the late war, and have returned to complete
your high school careers in our midst, we extend a cor-
dial welcome. Although we are unable to recognize and Welcome
you individually, we would have each individual soldier and sailor
know that we feel your presence in the various school activities,
which are made stronger this year by your cooperation. Vle
would have you know that to you we give due creditfor the un-
surpassable spirit and "pep" displayed by our student body.

stated, "Why, he expects it. He stops for us." And what else
could a speaker do but stop when three thousand hands are pro-
claiming their approval? And--do you stop when the time comes
to stop? It is just as bad to clap too long, you know, as to not
clap at all. The only rule to follow is your own good judgment.
Just put yourself in the speakers place. There are few things
that misrepresent a school in the estimation of a visitor more
than an occurance oi' this sort. You boast of our having the best
school in the city. Then do your part to justify your statement.
The Boys XVl1o Diduft lvlake the Team
N THE Fall of each year the football call comes to East High's
boys. "Get out for football" is buzzed in the ear of every
boy. The result is a good number of boys out for football.
Some, of course, cannot be on the team. Only elgeven men o'-t
of this bunch of fellows are allowed to represent East High in
her clashes with other schools. But do we stop to think of those
other fellows who are out there every night fighting our team and
thereby lighting for our team and East's football reputation? Do
we stop to think of the boy who sometimes sits on the sidelines
all thru the game aching to get in, the sub who goes in when the re-
gular's put out? Yes, give the team credit--loads of it--they're a
line fighting bunch of fellows, but let's give the scrubs, the sec-
onds, and the subs credit for getting out and showing their East
High spirit by giving the best team in the state something to
practice on. Let's be as the substitute, ready to back our team
and school to a Hnish--and do it in the right manner.
The Best BZll'g'2lllll Out
OOKING for a bargain? The best bargain you ever had a
chance at? Then all you have to do is open all the win-
dows in your class room and let in plenty of fresh air.
"Mercy, I'm freezing!" exclaims Clarice. But if Clarice would
wear clothes that were suitable lor school instead of coming all
togged out in cobwebs and mist and so forth, she might find that
she could stand a little fresh air and that said fresh air was the
best thing in the world for her. In the grades we learn all about
sleeping with all the windows wide open and getting all the air
possible but we come to high school and recite with the windows
down tight, shutting out the day air which is free from the smoke
that we inhale at night. Our class rooms are hot, stuffy, and as
far from being conducive to good work as can be imagined. And
why? Clarice and her bunch might feel a little cool, When
2 een 4'
we all know that fresh air is the best remedy for everything, why
is it that we absolutely refuse to take a bit of it into our lungs?
How can our brains be expected tc- be at their best when they are
not properly nourished? Which class will be the first to report
that it had ALL the windows up ALL the period? Just get Clare
ice KL Co. to put on their coats and keep quiet and then ask the
teacher if she can't notice an improvement in the recitation.
The East High Spirit
N THE Fall a great part of theschool's interest is centered in
football. And with football come pep meetings. East High
has been having pep meetings this season which have have
been more or less animated, but not over enthusiastic. Our ex-
cellent yell leaders have worked hard and valiently, giving both
time and energy trying to instill in us a true spirit of -pep. But
their efforts had been almost in vain as we did not respond with
any depth of feeling.
However when three bells rang Monday morning after the Storm
Lake game every student at East High went into the assembly
room with more interest and enthusiasm than shown so far this
season. We had felt that our team was almost invincible, they
had won every game of the season up until this one and we were
over confident. We did not realize that they needed backing, and
we had accepted each victory assuredly. But when that fateful
report reached us Saturday night that our boy's had been defeated,
had lost the chance for the state-champion-ship, we began to
Wonder. Was it their fault or ours? Perhaps we had not shown
the right spirit, perhaps if we had done our part the game might
have turned out better. It was well that those three bells were
rung at eight-thirty Monday morning. East High had awakened!
East High had begun to think! We had met our first defeat but
we were by no means conquered. We didn't blame our boys.
We knew there was nothing the matter with them. We knew
they lhad done their part, it was for us to do ours. To be sure
they had lost. No matter whose fault it was, they were still
our boys' and we were for them through and through. East High
regained her lost pep, her true spirit that morning. Years ago
that same spirit had been predominant, and then for a time it
had lost its vim. But it was there lurking in the background,
only waiting for the right time when it should come forth again.
Now the old spirit, the old feeling has come. When was there
ever such an assembly before? Since when had we shown such
pep? Not just a few of us, all of us! We were as one single
voice, one feeling, one power, one spirit! East High that spirit
has made you what you are. Katherine Kountz, '22.

S9l'gg'6ZlllllZ Ralph Whittle
URJING the summer, confirmation of the death of Sergeant
Ralph Whittle was received by his parents.
A year ago the twenty-sixth of iast October his parents
were informed that he was slightly wounded. Repeated inquiries
of the War department failed to amplify this information. Vari-
ous comrades of his wrote that they had seen him, no two at the
same place. As time went on these comrades returned to this
country, but could tell nothing definite, as to his whereabouts.
So matters went on, his friends alternating ,between hope and
despair. Last summer, almost a year after he had been killed.
his folks receivefl a letter from a German officer, Whose duty it
was to keep track of the relatives of the dead and wounded. He
enclosed papers found in his cont, by the soldienwho had killed
him. Among them was a letter to nis sister, znfl addresses of
Des Moines boys, his companions. y
Ralph Whittle was a graduate of this school, Well lemembei ed by
many of the faculty. .
. Mell Bollinger
ECAUSE Mell Bollinger contributed an unusual share of
kindness, friendliness, and happiness to the atmosphere of
our school life, his death has brot to East High an unusual
amount of real sorrow. It has been hard to have him go from
us because it was particularly pleasant to have him with us. His
friendly smile, his jolly gieetings, his love of funl. his quick re-
sponse to the needs of others, his appreciation of every little kind-
ness, his whole-sruled enthusiasm for friends and school,-the-so
are the things which endeared him to both faculty and student
body of East High.
He fought his losing fight with sickness as gamely and as bravely
as he had fought upon the gridiron, and he Was ready tcm accept
unconiplaixiiiigly the outcome. Strengthenecl by faith and by the
sacraments of the churchg he faced the great moment, not afraid
His were the merry heart and the brave spirit which find life
always worth While and which do not flinch before death. For
his gayety and his bravery he has been clear to us and his days
among us will be a happy memory to us all. Miss McBride.

VVith Omes on the Census
As we realize considerable curiosity will be aroused' as to
the identity of the author of the following article, we feel
that it is our duty to enlighten, to the best of our ability.
our readers upon the question. But we regret to state that our
information is scarcely more than can be grained my a perusal of
the article in question. The manuscript came into our hands in
a roundabout way that precluded any possibility of tracing. The
names of Burdock Omes and his friend Watkins, are not familiar
to either the editor or the authorities of this school. Our in-
quisitiveness must therefore remain unsatiated until such time as
Mr. Omes sees fit to reveal himself to an intereste1l public.
OU HAVE all heard of my friend, Burdock Omes, the pre-
mier detective and great criminologist. You have heard
of his many idiosyncrasies and eccentricities that he has
injected into his profession. The latest is to take a census of
the school children of the United States with the View of fincliug

of future criminals there are in this country, Witn whom he will
probably come in contact as soon as their powers are fully do
With that view, taking' me along' with him as 'his medical at-
tendant, to care for him in case he should become despondent and
discouraged with the prospect the future holds before his pro-
fession, or in case he should be sc overjoyed to irnd how glorious
a day is dawning upon the race of detectives, and have heart fail-
ure. In the course of our journeys we visited your East High.
We stationed ourselves during the lunch hour in the front corridor.

that his name is W ----- m St ---- l, anal as you perceive, his
fair companion he calls Doris. Now, as you know, I attach sig-
nifigance to coupling of names, and in 1ny wide experience have

He next called my attention to a young man in a red and black
sweater. "From the fact that he wears his hair pompadour I
would say that he is accustomed to being often in the public eyej'
remarked Oxnes. "Further, as his throat is somewhat overdevelou
ed, I would say that he is best known by an over-exercising of
the vocal chords." t'He is a yell leader by your description,"
cried I, delighted to have such a burst of intuition. "Exactly,"
agreed Omes, "and his name is ---- cl C - - e. But there is
nothing to be excited over, Watkins, for you've seen yell leaders
before, haven't you?"
Omes wanted to walk around into the side corridors, so we
turned into the north one. As we turned the corner We heard
loud and angry voices. 'LHushf' said Omes, "it is Or----1

have perfect voices for criminals, so I wish to hear what they are

thundered Or ---- e, "I am taking the prettiest girl in the fresh-
man class to the Senior Freshman party." There seemed to be
no chance of a decision being reached, until G1-n suggested that
they carry the matter before a member oi' the faculty, as the fac-
ulty would be the best judges of beauty.
Miss Ma ---- e Sal ---- l came along at this moment, in Quite
her best theatrical manner, looking to neither right nor left, and
her nose tilted to an angle of forty tive degrees to the horizon.
A young gentleman addressed her. "Hello, Nazzy Moava, how are
Omes grunted. UNO criminals so far."
I-Ie then saw a note upon the lloor, with certain undecipherabze
hieroglyphics scrawled upon it. Instantly his detective sense was
aroused. He commenced to tip-toe toward it, with both ears
raised .als only Omes's ears can beraised, and with his eyes circling
about on the lookout for any interruption. He reached the note,
safely, and carefully picked it up. He then pulled out his mag-
nifying glass and searched it for finger prints. I thot I saw one,

disappeared under the microscope, for Omes di:ln't see it. In a
shorter time than I can tell he had found out where the paper
was made, how many people had handled it, how old the piece
was, from how large a sheet it had been torn, the numher and
make of the pencil that had written upon it, and many other in-
teresting facts aliout it. He then read the writing, and found
this - - - 1919 12th St. O. P. I-le then gave an exclamation of
disgust, and fell into my arms, overcome with disappointment.
I soon revived him with smelling' salts, and he told me the secret
of the note. "See ,how wavy the writing is:--just like the prairie.
The boy who wrote it was named O. Prairie, therefore, and this
is evidently the address of his lady friend."
I sympathized with him, and We continued our Search for the
future criminals. We szlvv ahead of us K ---- th G ---- n. a
most prominent member of our school. Omes gave a screech of
delight. "There," he exclaimed. "There is your perfect criminal.
Note his air of di,-gfnity, the mysterious manner in which he carries
himself, the stiffness of carriage that gives him his theatrical ap-
pearance, the restraint in his voice--all these are symptoms of the
perfect criminal. Watkins, I am going to stay here in this city
and keep a watch on this fellow, for if I have ever met my match,
it is now."
The following poem is a reprint from the Des Moines Capital.
The students of East High are always proud to claim a coming
genius as a fellow student.
Go through life with a smile,
But if you can't smile, just grin.
For you'll find it worth while,
If you only just smile
Though the future be ever so dim.
If your pathway be rough,
And the whole world seems gruff,
if you only just smile,
'Twill go many a mile
Toward calling the old world's bluff.
The man with a ready smile
Will not trade that smile for a fortune,
For he knows that his grin
Is worth more to him,
Than the riches a king could apportion.
William Stovall '20.
Excuse you now expect, I fear,

So, I could hardly homeward crawl.
I then forgot the paper--quite,
'Tis one o'clock. "So long," tonight.

WAS sitting all alone about eleven o'i:lr-ck one rainy, clrizzly
night, reading Poe's "Fall of the House of Usher." I had
reached the place in the story where Madeline had come up from
the vault. All at once I began to shudder, and as Madeline ap-
proached her brothers room I became very nervous and shifted
my feet on the rug. Suddenly I hard a soft, creeping sound lilac
foot steps in the hall. They kept getting louder every minute.
I could feel the blood rising to my faceg a hot sensation went
over me, then I felt the blood recede and I became chilled. Every
hair stood on end. My heart went throb, throb, throb. I could
not get my breath easily. To add to the horror of the situation,
I thought of the lady across the street who had died that after-
noon. There I sat, scared speechless. I could not move my
eyes from the direction in which I heard those pattering steps.
All at once I was reminded that I was still here on earth ba a
voice not altogether gentle, "Lovella, aren't you coming to bed

Peter glanced at the immaculate lunch cloth, with the tell tale
boyish finger prints, and shifted his gaze to the stubby toes of his
shoes, wherein his heart must be pounding.
"Young man, answer my question this minute."
Still Peter kept his eyes glued to the tips of his shoes, half ex-
pecting them to answer for him, since his heart 1nust be in one
shoe, his tongue ought to be in the other, he thot.
Since no answer came from the small dejected figure, Mrs. Jenn-
ings marched sternly across the floor of her spotless kitchen and
examined the jam jar, set squarely in the middle of the tea tray.
Then she marched back to Peter, who had forgotten about his toes
and jammed his hands in his pockets.
"Let me see your hands, at once, flo You hear? You act as ii
you were cleat and dumb."
"Yessu1n." And Peter slowly held out two dirty, sticky, jam'-

At Harvest Field Near Sundown
HE DAY is nearly spent and the :Air is no longer hot and
sultry. The sun which has beaten down all day long upon
the heads of the workers has ceased to shine so fiercely
and is about to set behind the line of hills on the horizon. The
farmer has finished cutting the grain and the horses are tied to
e. fence post at the edge of the field where they are constantly
munching grass. He is helping his boys set up the last few win-
rows of grain for withouthis help the field cannot be finished be-
fore sundown. The sweat is no longer on the brows of the work-
ers, for a cooling breeze has sprung up. They forget their wearie
ness of mind and body as the close of the twelve long hours of
labor draws near, and they realize that they will soon be done with

The Hunts vs. the Scrubs
cc l-lERE'S the wedding goin' to be?" came from the
center of a group of boys gathered about a drug
store for the purpose of having a noisy good time at
the expense oif some "Newlyweds"
"Jim and Fred ain't here yet," grumbled another boy.
"Well, let's go over and have a gmne of football till they come,"
proposed still another.
At this suggestion they all went over to the vacant lot to start
the ball a-rolling.
Ted, who was acting as captain of the "Scrubs," said to Jack,
acting as captain of the HRunts," 'LLet's flip to see who kicks
"Heads," called Jack as the coin went spinning into the air.
But it lit "tails" and Ted won the toss.
"All right, now, you guys. Give me some interference," yelled
Jack to his team who was ready to tear down the field at any
Jack caught the ball and down the field they went. Shouts
came from the "Scrubs," 'Get 'em there, Tom! Smear 'em!"
"Down!" came Jack's cry from beneath the pile of yelling boys.
"Sure you'r down, and it was about six feet back there," roared
Ned, the "Scrubsi' halfback.
Up spoke the ragged red headed center' of the "Runts," George
they called him, UAW, you're crazy! That ball never touched
"Get over the ball there, George, and quit arguing," said Jack.
"Signals! -L, 9, 2, 8, 7, hip!" shouted Jack. And then came
another pile-up. Shouts came from beneath the pile, 'tOuchl Get
off my head! Quit your kickin' me! Leave loose my coat!"
"Now then, you guys, give nie more interference and We will
show them some playing," called Jnlck.
Then came another general sack-piling contest while George was
speeding' towards the "Scrubs" goal for a touchdown.
"Tain't no fair for the center to carry the ball." A heated
argument was stialrting when someone yelled, "There comes the car!
Let's go." '
And they all hopped on the side of the car and rode away to
the wedding. Loren Barnes.

In the latest style,
Oskaloosa knows well our frioml Pete.
Our Johnnie, 'most every one knows,
Just back from Sibei-ia's snows,
Can tackle and smash,
Plunge the line with a dash
There's "no ki:1din" when he hits his foes.
Floyd Hibbs is a tackler of grit,
Who never admits he's hit,
His smile ne'er deserts him,
No matter what hurts him
This veteran lll?'v'1'1' cries "Quit"
Our team has ai half back named Yenser,
Who served Uncle Sam well in France, sirg
He has pluck, pep and speed,
Such as football men need,
And he's one of our very best men, sir.
A trump of a center. is Horner
I-Ie's back from his light with the foreigner,
He's proved he can Win,
Wlieirever he's been
Helped back West High into a corner.
When Ervin lVIcConkey left France,
They say he performed a wild dance:
When we won F1'iday's game
He sure danced the same
To see him we al'l wished the chance.

Gob Wallerstedt here is called Dick
We count on his turning the trick
He has little to say
But he's there with the play,--
He is handsome and I 'll say he's quick
A. Krueger's a guard hard to beat
In spite of his collar so neatg
With him in the line,
We know the design
Was to bring West High to defeat.
Do you know our big Byron Johnson
Who Weight something less than a gross
Just watch this left guard
He hits 'mighty hard
And he made old West High Team go
Phil Hartungfs afraid of no foes
The old East High Spirit he knows,
as quick as a. flash
And his playing's got dash
He's always right on his toes.
Now here's to our field Marshall Tew
I-Ie's not much in size but he'll do
Just show hi1n a hole
And he'll make for the goal,
For Iiolla can wiggle clear through.
When I-Iolsaple stands alt the center
Our line is so strong you can't dent herg
He holds like a rock
Through onslaught and shock
Then here's to our peach of a center.
Perhaps you've heard Garretson's name,
As Buddy he's best known to fazneg
The girls think he's great,
But West sure did hate,
To get in his way in the game.
.,. - st
Q awake sg at he
Who likes to get into the frayg
"For heaven's sake" here is our Jay
He is lanky and tall,
But he follows the ball.
At end or at tackle he'll play.
At quarter C. Ridg'eway's some boy,
He thinks calling signals great joy,
We all know he's plucky,
We hope he'l1 be lucky,
And help win the scores we'll enjoy.
K. Kellogg's a sturdy young' player,
Who while training is not a late stayerg
He's asleep before eight,
Which is really not late,
That's why he grows gayer and gayer.
Then there is the coach of our team,
Who makes Victory more than a dream.
No one on this earth
Knows better his worth.,
Than the boys of our own footboll team.

HE FIRST team under the coaching of Mr. Moyer has shown
wonderful ability. This is the second yearthat Coach
Moyer has been with us. We hope that he may coach the
boys to victory next year, because the ooys have grown to treat
him as a brother. They like the earnest spirit with which he
Works. I am sure if he is with us next year, that under his
generalship the state championship will be ours.
We are very fortunate this year in having some of our old stars
returned from the army and navy to help us give our opponents a
good wailloping. Among them is Earl "Pete" Walters who has, in
almost every game, outplayed his man, and, through his ability to
catch forward passes, and by the free use of his toe on the pig-
skin he has been a prominent feature in the success of our team.
John Handstroin wanted to scrap for East High so bad that he
came all the way from Siberia. The success with which he has
thrown forward passes and punted the pigskin, connected with his
hard smashing against the line, has succeeded in giving East High
the long end of the scores. Floyd Yencer and Richard Wallerstedt
have also been playing a goodgame for East High in the backneld.
We surely hate to miss these fellows next year, but this is their
last year and they have been playing a good game for East High.
Another fellow who has been a good game is Floyd Hiblos. He
has been holding down the position of tackle, and has not received
as much credit as he has deserved, because he didn't have afny
chance to make gains by carrying the ball, but instead, he was one
of the fellows who made the holes in the opponents line and gave
our backfield a chance to malke their long gains. He invariably
held his man and gave the team strong interference. Irvin Mc-
Conkey playing right end has also been an important factor in
Easts victories. He like Pete Walters, has been able to make
long gains by nabbing forward passes.
These ex-soldiers and sailors together with the other men of the
team, have succeeded in winning six out of the seven games they
have played, and also have managed to run up a score of 171 to 17.
I don't believe that any East High team in the past has been
able to beat that record. We regret to lose some of our players,
but from the work of the second team it looks as though we will
have men to take their places, Page Twenty-three:
1. - R
OYAL Hibbs, captain of ouv eleven, makes an able assistant
to Mr. Moyer. He is a veteran of last season and was
elected calptain because of his brilliant playing and also
because ofgeniality. He has a smile on his face most of the
time but when he plays he goes in to Win or fight all thetirne,
even in a losing game. From appearances he goes in to 'get the
other fellow but ,he always plays an clean game.

Coach Lester Moyer has this year turned out one of the best
football squads in Iowa, if not in the Middle West. He has
worked hzzlrd to whip this team into shape, and should be proud of
the result. From the sore shoulders and backs at the first of the
season it is evident that he not only worked himself, but also
worked his men hard.
Mr. Moyer is not only our athletic coach but i s also a member
of the faculty, and is as efficient in the class room as he is in
giving East I-Iigli a star eleven.

East High vs. Iudianola
N SEPT. 27th East High tucked away the first game of the
season against Indianola High by a score of 13 to 0.
Indianola brought a. strong well balanced team to battle
East and put up a stilf game for three quarters. However, the
pace set by the East High battlers was too strong and in the
final quarter two touchdowns and a free kick spelled defeat for
the invaders. K
While Indianola came prepared to give the battle of their lives
and fully expecting to win, the game was more or less of a prac-
tice affair for East to test out the playing qualities of seine twenty-
five men for places on the team. For that reason the team work
of East was very ragged at times. The vets of former teams,
who had returned from Uncle Sanfs service, were full of pep but
had hardly enough practice to get back into old time form. HOW-
ever, Walters, Hanflstrom, Wallerstedt, Yencer, and Floyd Hibbs
showed great promise and will be heard from before the season
For three quarters Indianolri held East and at times had the
latter on the defensive. East seemed to lack punch on the offen-
sive and could not break thru the heavy Indianola line. Graves,
quarter, and Nichols, half, for Indianola broke thru several times
for good gains but met a stone wall near the goal line. East
seemed to be rather Weak on punting and on exchange of punts
lost ground. I
However, in the final period East seemed to strike its stride
and had the ball most of the time. A beautiful forward pass-
Johnnie to Bus-resulted in a touchdown after Bus has made a pretty
run ot' forty yards. Goal was kicked, and with the score 7 to O
East kicked oft to Indianola. The latter :failed to advance the
ball and attempted a pass which was intercepted by Wallerstedt
who carried the hall to Indianola's iifteen yard line. After a
series of OIT-tackle plays and short end runs, Mcllflain went thru
tackle for the second and final touchdown. Johnnie failed to kicic
goal and the game ended.
For Indianola Graves, Nichols, and Hunnicut put up a good
game. East really had no particular stars bL1t Tew, Handstrom,
'Walters, Captain Hibbs, and Krueger will make some one step lively
to stop them before many more games are played.
Oskaloosa vs. East High
CT. 4TH. All aboard for Oskaloosa! Twenty strong' East
lads left to tackle the State Contenders on their own
grounds. A heavy rain on Friday night made the field a
sea of mud, but East was equal to the occasion and started the
game off with a rush. 'Osky won the toss and elected to receive,
failed to gain, and punted. East advanced twenty yards on a
pretty forward pass, failed on two line plays and then called upon
Pete Walters, all-state end of 1917, for a drop-kick. The ball
sailed squarely between the posts.
The rest of the game was a mud battle with the advantage de-
cidedly in favor of East. Osky was unable to gain ground and re-
sorted to kicking whenever they got possession of the ball. Se-
veral times East was in easy scoring' distance but fumbled or lost
the ball on downs. Wallerstedt, Garretson, and Hanclstrom were
able to make good gains and several passes were completed for
long gains, usually with Pete on the receiving end.
.Brookings, Osky's speed merchant in the backneld, did not come
up to expectations, as East High's line nailed him before he could
get started. A. Muhl, the plunging fullback was easily stopped.
Osky tried to play an open game but the slippery field made the
footing uncertain and fumbles were frequent.
In the third quarter East had a good chance to score but the
ball was lost in mud puddle and Osky lficked out of danger. In
the fourth quarter the ball was again in easy kicking .distance for
a goal but Pete tried a run instead, and the game ended with the
ball on Osky's twenty line with the score 13 to OJ.
Altogether it was a good game and evens up a tie and a defeat
of the past two yeras. The treatment rnccordezl East by Osky's
rooters could not be complained of and our boys came back none
the worse from the grueling contest and happy and proud of their
Eldora vs. East High
AST HIGH was scheduled for a football game with the Eldora
Training' School eleven on Oct. llth, but put on a track
meet instead. The East High grid team found the Eldcra
Training school eleven unexpectedly weak, and the Scarlet and
Black players had little difficulty in irouncing the visitors, the
final score being 66 to 0.
The Training School boys fought hard, and played a good, clean
game of football. The visitor's First line was unable to stahd the
unslaught of the locals, and time after 'time the Scarlet and
Black men bioke through, and downed he Training School man in
his tracks. Eldora tried to register gains by bucking the East
line, skirting' the ends, and forwardpassing, but seldom with suc-
cess, owing to the watchfulncss of the Scarlet and Black players.
East High got away with many long gains by forward passing and
bucking the line, and finally defeated the Eldora players with a
score of 66 to O.
2 :aeil E it Tia
Captain Hibbs put up a great game as .did Handstrom, Walters,
and McConkey. McMains and Bollinger, who went in place of the
regulars, playefl a good game and promise to make two good men
in the backiield. The improvement East showed compared with
the way they stacked up against the Oskaloosa and Indianola teaivs
proved to the followers of the Scarlet and Black school that the
Fast side eleven still has its hat in the state high school football
championship race. Coach Moyer's players worked well together,
and the first line charged and held the opponents at the right
St. Joe Central High vs. East High
HE Missourians came to Des Moines Friday night expecting
on the morrow, October 18, to give East High a good wai-
loping. According to the score it was the other way
around, for East High found St. Joseph Central High easy picking
in a one-sided game. The game was featured by many spectacular
plays in which the East High players starred. Our fighting warl-
riors worked like a well oiled machine and played a fast, clear
game of football. Despite the topheavy nature of the score, the
visitors played a i'air game hut the East line held at all times
and St. Joe's chances to score were very slim. During the first
half, the East High hackiield got away with long gains through
holes made by the line. The St. Joe line could not stand the on--
slaught of East's husky warriors, and the hard smashes made by
the backiield. At the end of the first half, the East eleven had
been across Central's goal line three times and easily kicked goal
at each attempt.
During the last half, the visiting eleven stiffened somewhat but
the East line held, and the only way that St. Joe men could gain
was by forward passing, They gained very little ground by this
method until Wyatt ot Central caught a forward pass and started
towards East's goal line with a clear field in front of him. This
netted the visitors a fifty yard gain and would have given them
a. touchdown had not Pete Vifalters outsprinted the runner and
tackled him from the rear. During' this half East High succeeded
in carrying the ball across the goal line for three more touchdowns
and also kicked goal each time. The final score was 42 to 0.
East High vs. Council Bluffs
HE game with Council Bluifs on Oct. 25th. was 'looked for-
ward to all season as it meant a nice trip to the river-
town. The team left on Friday afternoon. A pep meet-
ing was held during the day and the team was given a good send-
oif. Since there was no diner on the train, Mr. Warren anticipat-
ing the appetites of a football squad made arrangements with
Miss Snook and the girls of the several cooking classes to put up
lunches for the boys. And such lunches! Ask any of the men
who made the trip. They certainly went right to the spot and we
think they aided materially in East bringing back a victory.
East received the ball on the 'kickoff and punted, recovering the
ball on Council Bluffs fifteen yard line. With a series of oi
tackle plays the East High warriors carried the ball over and
kicked a successful goal during the first three minutes of the
game. From then on it was a fight back and forth in the Council
Bluffs territory, until in he last quarter, under the generalship of
Bus Tew, and with the renewed effort of the back field and of
the line men, East High began to gain ground consistently and
showed all the fine qualities that go to make a championship
eleven. With the East back field puncturing the BIuff's line for
long gains, and with many beautifully executed forward passes,
our team advanced across their opponent's goal line three more
times and kicked one goal.
By winning this game with a score of 26 to 0, our team showed
us that they were in the fight head and feet for the state cham-
pionship. Q C ' 1
East High vs. Storm Lake '
TORM LAKE gave us a surprise, on November first, when she
downed our championship contenders by a score of 10 to 7.
East High had not looked for much of a battle, as Storm
Lake had won only one game during the season.
The game opened with East receiving. The Storm Lake line held
and East was forced to punt. Long end runs by Storm Lake brought
the ball to our 25 yard line, and after the East linelheld they
landed a drop kick between the goal posts. ln the second period
East blocked a punt on the 12 yard line and when they .gained
little headway with line smashing, they slipped over a nice for-
ward pass and went for a touchdown. In the third qurter, neither
side scored and the ball was kept zigzagging across the field.
In the final period East carried the ball to the ten and 'fifteen
yard line seven different times but were either penalized or fumb-
led. Once Wallerstdt ran the ball over for touchdown but the
Referee said he blew his whistle by mistake so the ball was brought
back and the run not counted. Several passes were tried but Pete
and Mac were held, blocked, and tripped so that it was impossible
to complete any of them. The Ul11l3lTByS attention was called to
these flagrant fouls but he appeared either blind or paralyzed and
did not call ,one penalty. When the game was ended the ball was
in East's possession on Storm Lake's ten yard line and our boys
were fighting every inch of the way.
The team was somewhat crippled in this game for the Hibbs
Q it 'a lie
brothers were temporarily crippled and may not be able to play in
the West High game next week. The East High rooters seemed
not to care about the defeat, for Monday morning they were run-
ning over with pep.
- East-Wlest Game
T is in the air. It is everywhere. The papers are full of it.
The old grads are Wandering down toward the East High Stali-
ium. There's a look of excitement and anxiety on every stu-
dent's face. The big game of the year is here, the annual clash
between East and West, the game looked forward to all year by
players and students alike.
A rousing Pep Meeting was held on Thursday night. Dow
Byers, who has been a hero in many football battles for East in
former years, was Chairman. After many yells and songs, former
players on East I-ligh's teams came to the platform and in fitting
words told of the East High spirit, the games of former years, and
paid tribute to the splendid record of this yearis team. Then the
team was called to the stage and each, man was given an oppor-
tunity to tell just what he was going to do and how West must
surely be defeated. Coach Moyer gave a short talk and introduced
each man on the team. It was a great gathering, one long to be
The team had caught the spirit of East's slogan, "Eat Em East."
A large truck, graciously donated to us by the Red Line, took
our team to the Drake Stadium. The team arrived at 2:15 and
we will never forget that sea of Scarlet and Black that arose to
greet its favorites with a yell that filled the Stadium and then
rolled away until its echo was heard all over Des Moines. A few

the ball to the waiting arms of McConkey who made a pretty
catch and took the ball over for the second touchdown. This was
East's pet scoring play and worked to a perfection. Johnnie
kicked another pretty goal and East was leading 14 to 0. Vimont
kicked off to Bus who made a return of 30 yards thru a broken
lield. Garretson, made 2 yards but Bus lost 3 on the next play,
and Pete punted to West'-s 25 yard line. Lee made 2 yards and

made a pretty return of 30 yards. Pete made 7 yards on a cross-
buck, Johnnie made 2 more, a pass was incomplete, and Pete

Yencer and Garretson both running for the ball bumped into each
other and West recovered. Yencer was injured. Lair was

then intercepted a pass on Eastfs 30 yard line. Pete punted to
Lee on West's 40 yard line, Lee being downed in his tracks and
the quarter ended with the ball in West's possession. Score East
14, West 0.
Head went in for Bryant. VVallerstedt returned to the game
in Yencer's place. Lee made a yard and then punted to Tew who
signaled for a ifair catch. Pete's punt was blocked but he recover-
ed the ball and punted from behind his goal to the center of the
field, Lair returned the ball 18 yards putting the ball on Easifs
30 yard line. Lair gained a yard but :failed on the next play. A

1ine,play failed to gain. East was penalized 5 yards. Dick made
5 yards and Johnnie made it first down. Bus made two yards
through the, line and Johnnie added 2 more. Garretson dashed off
5 yards and the game ended with the ball in East's possession on
VVest's 8 yard line. One more minute or possibly one more play
would have taken it over as East was playing an irresistible game
and was tearing West Higlfs line into threads. Final score, East 14,
West 7. '
A crowd of 8000 people saw the game and it was fine to watch.
full of thrills and ,spectacular plays. Both teams were evenly
matched in weght and fought every inch of the way. East seemed
to have the advantage in speed and line charging' and its reper-
toire of plays was baffling' to West on many occasions. East's
backfield ran the ball in great style and the line opened up great
holes for them to plow thru.. Bus and Johnnie put up a fine exe.
hibition of football, the former n his returning of punts and the
latter on his line plunging. Pete was there on catching passes
and his punting was above the ordinary. lVIcConkey by his good
catch of a pass was responsible for one touchdown. Hartung did
good work for the time he was in the game. For West Vimont
was the shining light on defense and his long spirals kept the
ball out of danger on several occasions. Lee and Lair in the back-
field played fine football but found it hard work to puncture East's
line or run the ends.

East High vs. North High
N SATURDAY Nov. 22nd East and North High met in their
annual grid battle at Drake Stadium. The spirit of the
East High rooters has always been the greatest at the East-
VVest games, but Saturday the routers backed the team to the limit
and displaced pep that has never been equaled. Last Saturday's
game marked the climax of the lfrzotball season of 1919, and was
the ,hardest fought game that has ever been played on the Drake
gridiron. The twenty-two players who locked horns battled gamcly
for every inch of ground. The defense of the East team was much
stronger than the North eleven expected, and Morton, the dusky
fullback of the Winners, who has been his team's mainstay on the
offensive all season, was easily stopped and was credited with
losing more ground than he grained.
Tew kicked off to North's 30 yard line. North, trying line
smashes, failed to make first downs and was forced to kick. Tew
received the ball and returned it ten yards before the North players
could down him. East was held for downs and forced to kick.
North again failed to make first clowns, and was forced to kick.
After receiving the ball the East eleven with line smashes and
end runs carried the ball to North's 35 yard line, wnere Tew
dropkicked through North's goal posts. When Tew's dropkiek
sailed between the cross bars, it was the first time that North
had been scored upon in two years, and the crowd on the East
bleachers went wild with joy. The first, second, and third quarters
ended with East High in the lead, but in the last quarter Tew,
the East quarterback, was injured and Ridgeway took his position,
and is credited with playing the best game for East he ever
Although our team fought like old time warriors, the North
team succeeded in making' small gains down the field. They
carried the ball to our 3 yard line and Morton tried to put the
oval across by smashing the line, but our fellows held. At last
making a last desperate effort to cross our goal line, Fredericks
was called upon to carry the ball: he hit the line but couldent
gain an inch but turned and slid olif tackle for a touchdown.
Knox kicked goal and the count stood 7 to 3 in favor of North,
Our fellows rallied and made another effort to beat the North
team and gained 25 yards by a 'forward pass, Handstrom to Yencer.
They tried one more but it was intercepted by a North player.
When the whistle blew the ball was in East's possession on her
own 40 yard line.
Every fellow played a good game hut Walters, Johnson, Kruger,
Tew, Handstrom, and Captain Hibbs played an exceptionally good

For .a long time North thought her chances for the State and
City Championship were gone.
It was a good clean game, despite the fact that both sides
played hard and many players were taken out for injuries. Tew,
our quarterback, and Snyder of North were carried off the field.
The contest will go down in history as one of the best ever staged
between the two schools.

Critical Moment in East-West Game
The Secoml Team
. FIRST team could not succeed if it had no opposition in
its practice games, and this year we have had a strong
second team which gave the first team some lively times
in scrimmage. They have been alily directed by Coach Townsend,
and next yeai"s team will demonstrate the faithfulness with which
they have worked this year.
The second team has been doing good work this season. Although
they had a poor start and were defeated by Norwalk 16 to 0,
theyadefeated the three other teams they have played. They
piled up a score of 22 to 0 on the Amos Hiait Junior High team

The Gir1's Dramatic Club
HE GIRLS' Dramatic club ol' East High, organized this year,
with Miss Christine Corey, a new member of the faculty, as
At the first meeting the officers for the year were elect-
ed, president, Grace Ryan, vice president, Velda Wilberng secretary,
Beulah Scovelg treasurer, Cheryl Sandler.
Mabel Burnett was appointed chairman of the program committee
Which, with the help of Miss Corey, planned the first meeting,
which was held at Union Park. After a picnic supper the new
members were initiated by presenting the well known drama
"Daddy-Long-Legs" but enacted by our amateurs under the title
of "Papa-Short-Legs" The leading roles were taken by Frances
Mckee as papa and Vernel Stenstrom as Judy, the orphan. Mar
jorie Green as Freckled-faced .Jimmie drank a little too much
cider. The other new members were equally as good and we are
expecting much of them in the future.
A play "Proposal under Difficulties" is being rehearsed, and
many other interesting programs are being planned.
With the help of Miss Corey we are hoping to make the Drama-
tic club a success in East High.
HE LATIN Club was late in organizing last year, but it
began work early this semester, and looks forward to a
successful year. Last spring Ralph Jester was elected
president and Loraine Patterson secretary. They appointed a
program committee of five, before the first meeting. Several en-
joyable programs have been given. At the Meeting on October
30, Miss Padmore's Cicero class gave the first of a series of four
programs to be given by the various Latin Classes. They re-
produced the assassination of Ceasar. When the other three pro-
grams have been given the members will note on them according'
to the number of meetings which they have attended.
The Club meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month.
The membership has been limited to fifty. '

President, Harold Hanson
Vice-President, Ralph Jester
Secretary, Hugh Gallegher
Treasurer, Frank Ridner
Sgt-at-Arms, Stuart Ball

East High in any debates We may have with other schools.
The Student 1Jl'i0llllSili1l Circle
HE GIRLS' Hi Y started to Work this year with lots of
ginger and pep, a great deal of which the girls had accu-
mulated during summer vacation at the Y. M. C. A. Camp.
Thirteen East High girls attended. Most of these girls belong to
the cabinet of the club. The real camping life out-of-doors, the
friendships formed, the inspirational Hi Y talks, and the good
times that were had there will never be forgotten by them.
Last year the club worked in two divisions. This year it will
work as one, each cabinet having charge for a semester. Amy
Scott, President of one division, 1'GSlQI16Cl,l16l' position on account
of having too many other activities, so Ruth Ann Spry, head of the
other division, has charge.
One of the first things engaged in by the Girls' Hi Y was a
membership campaign. Miss Jordan, Girls" Hi Y Secretary, gave
a talk in the assembly to launch the work. About one hundred
and fifty new members joined as a result of the campaign.
A model discussion cn the subject "High School Girls' Clothes"
and a demonstration of games were put on at the Y. W. C. A.
under the supervision of Miss Smith. the leader of the club. These
were given for the Leaders' Convention, held from October 30th to
The student Friendship Circle holds as its aim for its Work this
year the betterment of the School and its ideals, and wishes to
help every girl that comes to school in forming fine and true
friendships and to promote her schcol interests. Alice Olson.
The Boyds Hi-Y
OMEBODY: "What is the biggest and best organization in
All of us: "The Boys' Hi-Y, of course."
In past years many boys have Worked hard in an effort to make
the Boys' Hi-Y a success. Now they can see the fruit of their
labors in the remark above. This year we got off with a Flying
start and as a result we haveuthe largest membership we have
ever had. The reason for our success this year may be found in
the splendid organization. In our president, Jay Mitchell, we
have a capable leader. However. the work is distributed so that
different boys have charge of the different departments. In this
way of course the work can be done more carefully.
In our programs this year we have had most interesting enter-
tainments. At our joint meeting' at North High, especially, We
had a good get-to-gether, But funn this time on, we should have
even better times as our discussion groups are to start now. We
are very fortunate in having such excellent leaders this year. Mr.
Wisdoin will be the Senior group leader, Mr. Moyer will lead the
Juniorsg and Mr. Amos Ball, the Sophmores,
Our determenation is to keep up our good beginning and have
a super year. ' Ralph Jester,
HEN MR. Roy Dougan came to East High the different
musical organizations were satislied for the iirst time in
several years. All had been looking forward to the
time when a teacher would be placed in the school who could re-
main thcre thruout the whole day, and if necessary, give instruc-
tions on different instruments, or individual help. Just to prove
that they are satisfied and appreciate it, all you have to do is
listen to any of the organizations some day and judge for your-
self whether or not there are any marked degrees of improve-
Perhaps very few people in the student body know that Mr.
Dougan was born, raised, and educated in Iowa. When still a
young fellow he finished Iowa Falls High School and from there
went to Ellsworth, Iowa, where he graduated from the Ellsworth
College and also from the Ellsworili Conservatory of Music. The
iinishing touches of his musical education were obtained at the
American Conservatory of Music. at Chicago, where he received
special mention in the study ol' Orchestration, and graduated
with A. B. and M. B. degrees. His first year as teacher was
spent in the public schools at Harvey, Illinois, teaching music,
The next year, however, was spent on the Redpath Vawter Chau-
tauqua Circuit but this was brought to a close when he enlisted in
the navy to help do his pait in the war. After thirteen months
of service he was discharged and East High was fortunate enough
,L . . . .
o be in the path of his career, so he is lingering with us for a

while. He has the best wishes of every student and all will
gladly cooperate with him to make his work a success in East
High- Harry Shell '20.
. HIS YEAR the band was handicapped by the lack of a bass
section, but the school got busy and purchased a few in-
struments for pupils desiring to play them, and, under
Mr. Dougarfs free instruction, they are now playing in the band.
Almost every day, during Mr. Dougan's vacant periods you can find
him teaching someone to play a band instrument and you can be
assured that by spring we will have the best band that has ever
been produced in East High or any other school. Although the
progress may seem slow, nevertheless the ground is being covered
thoroughly and at each rehearsal all receive individual help. All
We ask for is timeg leave the rest to Mr. Dougan.
So far this season we have played at three football games and
the boys certainly made it known that they were there. Just to
make things the best we could at all the games, we obtained the
services of Mr. Stuart and Mr. Lewis, members of the local
musician's union, who certainly put the finishing touches to our
hand cn these public appearances. At the West High game the
band turned out twenty strong and kept the school spirit running
high all through the game by playing the school songs. Perhaps
most of the students noticed that in the 'fourth quarter our band
played 'Tm Sorry I Made You Cry" which was very appropriate
at the time. We have only one more football game to play for.
but that is not the end of our band, because We have yet many
things in store for the students of East High. Harry Shell '20.
AST HIGH opened this year with a new orchestra director,
and I am sure we greatly appreciated the fact when on
the fourteenth of September our orchestra presented us
with a short programme. The orchestra has been practicing
twice weekly so as to be able to play when they are calllefl on.
The football boys asked us to play at their party after the game
with St. Joe, and immediately Mr. Dougan began to direct us or:
some new jazz music. A short time after that, we were asked
to play for the Parent-Teachers' Association. New we have been
asked to play a full programme at the Red Cross Bazaar which
is going to be one of the largest events in the middle west. East
High should feel highly complimented to have her orchestra se-
lected, when there are so many good ones in Des Moines. We
also played before the State Teachers' Convention. The orchestra
now numbers about thirty five, but if there are any, others in
school who can play we should like to have them join us.

The Boys' Glee Club
Oh, say, did you hear in Assembly one clay,
The boys' and girls' gcc clubs singing away?
Some thought the bcsl music was made by the boys,
At least this is sure. Uv-y maile fi great noiseg
But others will hold illzii the girls sang the best,
They certainly sang v.E1b alsunclance of zest:
The song the girls safigf was entitled Hln Spain",
They sang' very well glial were not the least Vain:
And "There Little Glqf. llonit Cry", was next sung
By the boys, till the 1-'ll auditorium rung.
Girls' Glce Club
Oh, say, did you hear. in Assembly one Clay,
The results of our limiil in music so gay?
You know it said that the boys Won the test!
But doesn't your heari sn' the girls sang the best?
Who coulcln't sing' w'll with 0 leader like ours?
He makes us all lone' io put forth our best powers.
What e'er we achieve. we owe all to him
Who labors to keep all our voices in trim
So here's to the singers. find here's to the song,
And herffs to the loaall,-r. of the Girls' Glee Club strong.

ciilecl with a sudden burst oi' enthusiasm that East High
needed a. Ukelele Cluh. Rerultg East High has 21 Ul-:elele
Club and is anticipating a. novel and interesting entertainment at
some future assembly.
The Stlulcnt Council
HE STUDENT Council wa-: organized this year to assist lVlr,
Burton and the faculty 1'llL'll1E.'ll0l'S in "putting things across."
It is not only an organizzilion for the members but for the
school body as a group. Since it was impossible for the entire
school to belong, one member l':'ovn each home-room was elected
to represent that room on the Vouncil. The first meeting was
held September twenty-third, and the following officers were el-
ected: President. Kenneth Gibson: Tice President, Glenn Strobrifigeg
Secretary and Treasurer, Virginia Buck. Also several standing
committees were appointed.
At a later meeting it was decided to launch a contest in order
if rc-rim' 4 si
to secure at least one thousand subscriptions to the Quill. Mildred
Bosley and David Bolen were elected to act as Divisional Captains.
They each chose Hve team captains and each team captain, in
turn, chose ten members for his team. The team securing the
largest number of subscriptions wll be served a delightful luncheon
in the cafeteria. The luncheon, unfortunately will cut out one
of the classes, much to their dismay. So if you wondered why
we were overly anxious for you to subscribe from US, you now
know that we wanted our team to experience the "Grand and
Glorious feelin'1' of getting a dandy luncheon Hfree gratis," and
also we wanted to reach our goal which seemed far in the distance.
J unior Chamber of Commerce
HE JUNIOR Chamber of Commerce held its first meeting of
the school year, September 25, 1919, The meeting was
opened by an introduction and short speeches of the officers
of the ensuing year: President, Junior Wood, North High, Vice
President, Russell Carroll, West Highg Second Vice President, John
Scoval, East High, Associate Secretary, Albert Baker, North High,
Treasurer, Homer Lyon, West High.
Representative Weaver was the speaker of the afternoon, and
all of the members were greatly interested.
In this speech Mr. Weaver laid before us the plans of the
Senior Chambe1', what they have done, and what they expect to
do in the near future. The Senator said that within a few years,
Des Moines will have better parks, and those better connected than
of any city in the United States, and we all have reason to be
proud for the city of Des Moines is moving faster than any other
city in America.
This excellent speech was closed with a poem by Rudyard Kip-
ling. After the meeting the new Hotel Savery III was visited.
New Faculty Members
AST HIGH sincerely welcomes the new faculty members, and
hopes that they think as we do that East High is the finest
high school in the country. To these members of the En-
culty do we extend our heartiest welcome: Spanish-Miss Ullrickj

CT. 8--If the Hi Y clubs are as good this year as the talks
given by Miss Jordan and Mr. 'Webber Oct. 8 they will by
a real credit to East High, Miss Jordan and Mr. Weblier
come from the HY. W." and HY. M." respectively. They were
good peppy talkers and left with us a will to boost the clubs this
Oct. 17--We had a "dandy" assembly Oct. 17. It was the day
before a game--the school was non its toes" with lots of pep. Mr.
Burton introduced Kenneth Gibson our Student Council president
and Virginia Buck, Sec--treas. Mr. Gibson then took charge.
Mr. Dougan with his boyls and girl's glee clubs were arrayed
before us. The girls were good and the boys disproved the saying
"The boys can't sing."
Miss Smith talked to us on "Sports and Sportsrnenf' She has
some fine ideas on these types of humanity and we should, as she
says, have more real, live sportsmen.
Rev. Howland Hansen was introduced. Rev. Hansen talked on
"Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth." He
applied this to foot-ball. His vivid description of one of the old
Princeton-Harvard games put us all on the ends of our seats and
his "six foot each way" man furnished laughs for some time. Rev.
Hansen sure has pep. This coupled with his humor and topic put
across the best talk of the year.
After Dr. Hansen's talk who uouldn't have yelled?-we did and
there was some PEP! The team was introduced by Mr. Moyer to
the tune of five RAHS apiece. This was our first formal intro-
duction to the team. We are Very Glad to meet you, team, and
we are backing you--win or lose.
Three rising cheers brought to a close one of the best assemblies
of the semester.
Oct. 23-- East was favored fas usualj by being the first nigh
school to hear Gilbert Gendall, Chief Scout Executive of Des
Moines, talk. He spoke to us on the American Red Cross Life
Saving Corps. He was followed by "Scotty" Russell our swimm-
ing instructor who gave boys awards they had won in the Life
Oct. 31--After doing a fairly good job of yelling, we were given
the pleasure of hearing Mrs. Jessie Buchannan Wilson read. Mrs.
Wilson read "The Swede at the Ball Game" and as a result several
of us went back to class having very red eyes. Her interpreta-
tion of Miss Mehitahle was also good. The school was well pleased
with her reading.
Some more of our musical talent was displayed at this time.
Harry Shell and Mr. Dougan played for us a coronet duet. The
teacher and pupil are highly complimented on their ability.
Nov. 3 ---- The Monday after "The Storm Lake Massacre" we
had a pep assembly. One would naturally expect one of these
on "Blue Monday" to be an extremely sad and solemn occassion.
But not so in East! Mr. McColgan gave a real, worth while,
business-like talk on the loss of the game and the winning of the
Coach Moyer then gave his "alibis" We say t'It's all right this
time--but see that it doesn't happen again."
The Night Before the East-West Game
'Twas the day before THE game when all thru the school
You could hear the kids shouting, "Eat 'em East is our rule." '
Pa Burton was sitting in his office chair,
Ma Hammer around the main office did tear.
We were to have THAT pep meeting you see,
And there was SOME commotion, bulleve me.
Oh, the thing came off great, as most of us know
With coach, team, and crowd a-rarin' to go.
We yelled with SOME pep and each player then talked,
We then went down town and yelled while we walked.
After the Victory
There were quite a few loyal supporters of East that were
"buggy" enough to come to school after yelling their heads off at
the East West game. These people were also very hoarse. Well,
we put 2 and 2 Cthat is, the hoarse and buggyj together and voc-
ally expressed how we rode over West. The tired crowd yelled
beautifully up to the moment Mr. Moyer announced that we were
all tired out and would depart.
What's doing in the music room? VVell, it's largely Dugan and
We've had some fine examples of the do-ing part. The Boy's and
Girl's Glee Club, the orchestra, hand and all the school's music
has improved greatly. We think Mr. Dougan is to be compliment-
ed on his musical work in East High.
October twenty fifst saw the opening evening of the Community
Program Course. Miss Francis Ingram, Metropolitan Opera con-
-tralto, sang to an appreciative East High audience and tho we're
not grand opera critics, we think her singing was great. On this
'Q it is
occasion, two East High boys sat in the audience trembling with
fear. They were to "go backl' and "interview" the singer. Two
boys met after the program. A little bird might have heard,
"Are my shoes all right?" "Gee f1he's in grand opera." "I dunno
about this." "Well, here goes, let's try it." Two boys entered
the ante-room---sh-I noticed one of the boy's knees shaking awfully.
Two boys shook hands with the contralto and--well, she was just
human--has colds, bad train connections, and pretty clothes. Oh
yes, girls, she was made up too ---- just enough you know. Miss
Ingram has a slight eastern 'tlfew Yawk" accent, a very pretty
pianist, and a dandy leather coat. She let us in the secret that
once she was a school teacher. Her musical carrer started in a
church choir and is at its height now in grand opera with the
Metropolitan Company. Two boys learned these things as they
talked, or rather stood mouth open, listening to Miss Ingram talk.
Two boys left Miss Ingram scrambling thru time tables looking
for trains to "Chi". The boys voted 2 to 0 that Miss Ingram was
not only a fine singer but a fine conversationalist.
A CSTVQBIIIUH Roast
The first week of October made every one in Miss Gabriel's
seventh hour class think of a 'twenieu roast out in the woods.
Consequently we had one. The night set was October eight and
we all appeared with high spirits and empty stomachs despite the
fact that it had started to rain. The East High Golf Club gladly
gave us the use of its clubhouse and say, they have the greatest
place on earth for a good cheery fire. The coffee, rolls, pickles
and beans went as fast as the "weenies." After the eating rush,
stories were told around the table. The lights were turned out
and the rest of the evening was spent by telling stories before the
open fireplace. The pattering of the rain added to the enjoyment
but soaked us clear thru when we began to wend our homeward
ways. We surely had a dandy time and hope to have many more

01d East High
In 1890 the people of East in-s Moines voted bonds to erect a
new building on the corner oi' Twelfth and Court Avenue to be
the home of the East High School pupils. In 1891 the building
was completed. Later on the new East High School building
was erected at East Thirteenth and Walker. The old building
was then called "Grammar School" and housed only the seventh
and eighth grades.
In 1916 the old building was partly destroyed by fire and on
being repaired a two story building remained. In the summer
oi' 1918 the school was then changed to a Junior High and was
named Amos Hiatt in honor olf iiilr. Amos Hiatt who was superin-
tendent of the East side School for fifteen years and who had his
office in this building.
The building' today houses seventh, eighth, and ninth grades and
regardless of the crowded condition and poorly equipped building,
Hiatt Junior High pupils are doing: good work thus proving
a Junior High School is an advantage. Lee Ross, '23.
The J nnior High Four-Minute Contest
VERYBODY, in these days of H. C. L. is anxious to earn
an extra dime, so when a prize was offered to the girl and
the boy who could give the best four-minute talk on "The
Advantages of a Junior High School," every pupil in Hiatt Junior
High became busy. My, how they worked.
At assembly on Thursday morning during the week of State
Teaeher's Convention, eight pupils, who had been selected at a
preliminary contest, gave their talks. Three visiting teachers
asked to be judges. Their decision was given in favor of Lola
Lloyd and Sam Isaacson, and each winner received from Mr. Cor-
nell the one dollar award.
Junior Red Cross
UCH interest and enthusiasm is being manifested in the
preparation for the Junior Red Cross Bazar. For several
weeks the pupils in the domestic art, manual training,
and industrial art classes have been busily engaged in making
many useful and attractive articles. These include childrens
dresses, sleepers, ironing board covers, minature furniture, unique
card-tray holders, clever Christmas cards, attractive desk sets,
beads, lamp shades, and the like.
It is believed that no more attractive display will be found at
Tile Junior Chamber of Commerce
l-IE JUNIOR Chamber of Commerce tends to acquaint the
boys with the Senior Chamber of Commerce and with the
working organizations of the city.
At Hiatt Junior we have a membership of twenty six ninth grade
boys, who are very enthusiastic over the organization. The trip
to the Register and Tribune Building was enjoyable as well as
instructive. The Manufactures' Exhibition at the library was
welll worth the time spent there. At the meeting on Nov. 19
we were entertained by cornet solos from Mr. T. Fred Henry and
an interesting' talk by Mr. George W1'igiltm6H, Sec. of the Iowa
Manu'l'acturing Association. We hope to have a larger number
of our ninth grade boys at our next meeting. A

The Girls, Glee Club
HE GIRL'S Glee Clubs, under the supervision of Miss Car-
penter, are again doing very active Work. The clubs plan
to give another operetta in December. The prodeeds are
to go to the Hiatt football team.
The Girls' Reserve
"Tall girls, short girls, 'Fai grirls, thin,
The Girls' Reserve lets them all in."
HE TRUTH of our Girl's Reserve yell was evidenced by our
first meeting' of the school year, September 17. Twenty-
five girls attended this opening meeting in which plans
were discussed and officers elected. The first S. O. S. meeting was
held a week later. Many i'Raxv Recruits" of the initial meeting
dropped along the Wayside. Plans were made for a big hike.
T'wo weeks later we 'hiked to Donald McRae Park. We ate
much and often of that forbidden fruit. the tiny red haw, but we
were ready for thhe feast of wieners and the trimmings. It was
enjoyed by the twenty-tive brave soldiers who had trudged over
the "Rocky Road."
Two other interesting meetings were the spread in the cafeteria
and the big' Hallowci'en party at ilu- Y. W. C. A.
The girls appreciate the able lc-aclership of Miss Rendlernan who
has charge of the club this year.
The Girls' ihfilllfill' Association
HERE IS a body of girls at Hiatt Junior High that few peo-
ple know anything about: but which soon expect to make
a name and place for itsell' in the many school activities.
This organization is called the "Girls' Athletic Association." It
Was organized for the sole purpose to promote a spirit of coopera-
tion and to further the physical training' activities of the girls.
The association has a president, Lolita Mitchellg a secret.-iry,
Alice Howeg and a faculty adviser. Miss McConnell.
On Thursday nights after school we meet to have good time,
either out of doors or indoors, as the weather permits. In these
good times We are greatly helped by the efficient work of our
physical director, Miss McConnell who takes a great interest in
the work of the Association. Lolita Mitchell,
Doingrs of the Happy Tribe
LTHOUGH at Amos Hiatt Junior High, we did not make :1
very big showing in the recent "Belgian Orphan Drive,"
' yet :ve raised enough money to adopt an orphan. This
costs 5543.80 a year. After raising' this amount we have 58.65
toward the support of a French orphan.
A Happy Tribe flag' has been presented to the school and it is
hoped that this flag will inspire ns to keep on with this Work and
live up to the name given by l-'lnppy as "the school that helps the
year round." Irene Storey, '23,
Hiatt P. T. A.
I' HIATT Junior High we have a very active P. T. A. Re-
cently there was a contest between the diderent classes
' of the school for new members. The contest lasted a
week, and the classes having the highest percentage of parents
enrolled was given a half holiday. Four classes, the 9B Boys,
SB4, SA2, 8: 7B1 earned this reward. The expectation was about
two hundred, but oh, what a great surprise! Three-hundred-nine
P. T. A. members were enrolled.
The speed with which the Hiatt Junior pupils gathered the
three-hundred-nine members shows their splendid school spirit.
West High is the only school which has a larger P. T. A. member-
ship than ours, but our percentage is the greater for ,with an
enrollment of seventeen-hundred pupils their P. T. A. member-
ship is only four hundred, while Hiatt Junior enrolls only seven-
Mrs. Zuch, President of Hiatt P.f T. A. is a regular package
of T. N. T. She is full of fun, pep, and enthusiasm. With
such a splendid woman at the helm, the P. T. A. hasifdone many
things for our school, one being the promise given by the School
Board for one-hundred-fifty badly needed lockers.
Thursday during the State Teacher's Convention the P. T. A.
served tea and wafers to the visiting teachers. The members
are always ready and willing to give a cheering word or a help-
ing hand. f
Other P. T. A's in the city will have to take a back seat for
Hiatt Junir High has beaten them. We aimed for the goal,
kicked the ball, and landed straight between the poles, scoring
high for Amos Hiatt P. T. A.

HE AMOS Hiatt Junior High School is the Hrst Junior High
to be represented by a football team. The record now is,
three wins, three defeats, and one tie.
At the first of the year, twenty men out for football, but as
the season wore on they dwindled down the thirteen. That leaves
only the team and two substitutes.
Coach Dunegan has worked hard every night after school and
has developed a winning team from a bunch of greenhands.
The boys received a walloping the first game which was with
Colfax. The Colfax team score-fl almost at will and the iinal
score was 56 to O.
This defeat discouraged the boys some and a number of them
quit the team. East High seconds handed them another defeat
by the score of 22 to 0. The V1-wil game they defeated Johnston
Station by the score of 50 to 7. This put new life into them
only to have their hopes darken:-ml by North High seconds who de-
feated them 32 to 0. But thc-3. popped up and played a hard
fought game with the Des Moines Catholic College for a scorless
tie. On a slippery muddy field they defeated the fast Ankeny
High School 7 to 6. Armistice 'lay they journeyed to Mitchell-
ville and downed the High School ihere 19 to 0. The final garne
of the season is with XVest High seconds, Friday November 21. '
This is a very good record for :i bunch of boys who have never
played before. They do not minil thhe defeats as they are getting
good experience for the team al, lllsist High.

Luncheon for Football Teaun
SK ANY one of the 'football boys what he thinks of the
Student Council and he will start oft on a line of praise
that has no end. Octolfol 259. the Student Council treated
the boys to a luncheon given in ilu- cafeteria. After the luncheon,
a brief business meeting was lwlwl and Charles Shope, our one
hundred and forty five pound izmlale, was elected captain. Mr
Dunagon and Mr. Cornell each naive a short talk. The team had
a fine time and wish to thanlq the Student Council for this
HE STUDENT Counuil ol' Amos Hiatt Junior High makes
many of the rules and regulations of the school. The
council consists of aboui, forty members, two from each
home room group, the nieinber.-. alternate, one going one week
and the other the next maliing' about twenty members at each
The meetings are held at eight o"clock in the morning so they
will not interfere with classes.
The Student Council has done 1: number of things this year.
The council was at the head ol' .i school party given recently. It
also gave the football boys a luncheon. Each was a great success.
The Student Council has been glad to do all that is possible and
hopes to -:lo much more in thc- near future.

I-Iiatt Junior at the lI0l'fll'lllflll'2ll Show
F COURSE, Hiatt Junior High was interested in the Horti-
cultural Show and the vacation ilurnished a splendid op-
portunity for all to see the exhibits. On Thursday even-
ing, a part of the .program was furnished by the farmerettes of
the school, who gave the yells of their club and of the school. A
Jazz Orchestra led by Lowell Hawk played several selections. BE--
sicles Lowell Hawk, who plays the trombone, other members are
Adclison Brown, clarinet, Ralph Ball and Arliss Brown, violins, and
Glen Wilsoii cornet.
Here and There
Nothinglat Amos Hiatt has been enjoyed more by teachers
and pupils than our community singing. This alone has done
much to create the splendid spirit in our assemblies and in
all school activities. We wish to express our appreciation for
our song and yell leader, Sam Isaacson.
If the Junior Quill is to be a success this year, we must have
the full cooperation and backing' of every member of the school.
We need not only your subscription, but each eon must feel his
responsibility in contributing something' toward our part of the
We have had fruit showers and flower showers and all kinds of
showers, but you should have seen the quarter showers during our
P. T. A. contest.
The 9B boy who is carrying five subjects and playing football,
and who receives all one's on his report card proves that after
all it pays to work.
Is the flag salute being given ,every morning in the same spirit
of patriotism as during' the war? If not, why not?
It isn't one of the duties of our P. T. A. president to attend
our football games, but she does. Mrs. Zuch may request any-
