W 'f J, faqfsonx I 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 Commencement Quill. 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.

' The Board of Control AST year the pupils of East High had a dream, it was A dream that a student body chosen by themselves might help to make their school better. Today, the hope of East High is no longer a dream but it is now an everlasting reality. Above the door that opens to our a slab of marble and on it carved of Humanity," chosen by the people The Board of Control was a great was in its infancy, and this year the the motto, "For the Service of East Des Moines. success last year, even tho it aim of its members is to hold up and make even higher the standards oil' our school and to strive above all to work "For the Service of East High," and thereby "For the Service of Humanity." Kenneth Gibson Correct Applause AYBE you are absolutely correct in all your applause but 1 if you are, then your type is not common. Clapping is used a great deal and therefore misused a great deal. Wlien aspeaker makes the remark, "I have never seen such aiine stu- dent body as this etc.,l' the most improper thing to do is to applaud. If you do, then never fear that he will say the same thing again, He won't. If someone rushes up to you and remarks about your wonderful talent along some line fif you have any, of course,J you don't get all excited and clap wildly, do you? Then don't clap when the student body as a whole is complimented. One student Page Six Q ,....Y" 5. ., Q.. Q x x 2 get Ns- 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 Page Seven l p H, 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.

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. . L .J . 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 to die. 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. - . aussie i. as fi.

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 out, thru his marvelous powers of character reacling, the number of future criminals there are in this country, Witn whom he will probably come in contact as soon as their powers are fully do velopecl. 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. for Omes says there is no better time in which to tell the charac- ter of a person than just after he eaten. Oines 'iirst called my attention to a short, dark, and sonievviirlt pre-occupied youth, with a young friend whom he familiariy adi- Page Eleven Ae Q61 . .f 'T dressed as Doris. "I find," said Omes, "bv consulting my directory 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 found that this particular conjunction is the sign of budding nu- thorship in the youth, and hero-worship in the girl. The liit of the right eyebrow shows that he has some secret from his fellow- stuclentsg because of the shape of his chin, I would say that he has had some article published in a newspaper. This I would say was a poem by the slight slurring of certain consonants in his speech." 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 Ga ----- -n and Gl- n Str-- - . ---- e having an argument. They have perfect voices for criminals, so I wish to hear what they are thus noisily discussingf' t'I've the prettiest girl," said Gl- ng UNO," 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 you today." 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, Page Twelve 2 ssss eernisiigisgssir it the mark of an inky hand, with my naked eye, but it evidently 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.

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. Smile 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.

All Alone 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 to-night?" Lovella Downing '21.

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'- stained hands for parental inspection.

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 toil f01' 21H0lZl'l61' Clay. Leverne Lenungn, Page Fifteen 'Z " "Lo 5" Tie 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 off." "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 time. 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 the ground!" "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.

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 rv 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.

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. Page Twenty-live ,.. ,.-...f-fn -.. .. ., Q WI .Vim 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 is over. 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 Page Twenty-six qi Te 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 victory. 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. Page Twenty-seven 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 time. 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 Page Twenty-eight 2 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 Page Twenty-nine 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 remembered. ' 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 moments later the warriors of West appeared and were greeted by the Maize and Blue. Each team Went thru some peppcry sig- nal practice. Captain Hibbs wins the toss and elects to defend the North goal. .

On the next play Johnnie shot a long pass in Pete's direction but Lee was right in line, caught the ball on the dead run and carried it back to East's 20 yard line. Three plays with Head, Lair and Lee carrying the ball grave West its second first down in the game. On the next play Lee shot the ball to McGregor across the goal line. McGregor fumbled but recovered the oval and scored a touchdown. Lee kicked goal. Vimont kicked oil' to Bus who returned ten yards. Pete punted to West's 40 yard line. A forward pass was incom- plete, another was completed but 'failed to gain. Vimont punted to East's 30 yard line. Pete lost on an cnd run and then punted to West's 45 yard line. Lair lost 6 yards, made 2 yards on the next play, failed to complete a pass. and Vimont punted to Eastls 35 yard line. Pete punted to lair who brought the ball back to West's 40 yard line. Lee was injured and Lutz took his place. On a poor pass West lost 20 yards. l-lartunpg went in for 1VIcConkey. VVest punted but was caught holding and on the next play punted from behind their own goal. Bus returned ten yards. West was penalized 15 yards for holding, and the hall was on West's 35 yard line. Johnnie got away for 10 yards. Pete made 2 yards but 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.

Page Thirty-foul' 52 c 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 played. 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 game. Page Thirty-five I --H . f.

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. The lineup was as follows: NORTH-7 EAST-3. Connell .................. L. E. L. E. .................

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.

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. Latin Club 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. ' Page Thirty-nine ' i :le Q The Boys Debating' Society HE BOY'S Debating Society held their first meeting October 13th. The officers elected were: President, Harold Hanson Vice-President, Ralph Jester Secretary, Hugh Gallegher Treasurer, Frank Ridner Sgt-at-Arms, Stuart Ball The society is fortunate in having as faculty adviser Mr. Nevlin who has had much experience in coaching debates. The aim of the society this year is to develop some strong debaters to uphold East High in any debates We may have with other schools. Eugene Burton. 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 November 21th. 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 East High?" All of us: "The Boys' Hi-Y, of course." In past years many boys have Worked hard in an effort to make Page Forty 2 gnu 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, Publicity Manager. Mr. DlDllg'Zl.ll 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- ment. 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 Page Forty-one 2 at .paras 1 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. The Band . 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. The Orchestra 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. ' Marie Wiley '20, Page Fourty-two Q e ,es i Eg.

Veltla VVilbern. The Ukvlele Club R. DOUGAN, East l-liglfs energetic music instructor, fle- 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 Page Forty-three 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. Madalynn Philleo. 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. Kenneth Gibson. 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 History Department-Mr. Townsend, Mr. Neveln, Miss Hudsong Dramatics-Miss Corey, Music-Mr. Dougang Domestic Science-Miss Draper, Mechanical Drawing-Mr. Moldenhauerg English-Miss Gillfun, Miss Murphy, Home nursing-Miss Needles, Girl's swimming-Miss Quiner, Miss McGuirei Page Forty-four 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 year. 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 Saving Drills. Page Forty-live 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 next one. 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. Our Music: 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 Page Forty-six '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 such. Red Cross 'Work in the School F YOU do not appreciate the Red Cross Work some of the de- partments of the school are doing, look the following lists over.

Miss Burns Miss Iillis Mr. Blake 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, the that Hiatt Junior High pupils are doing: good work thus proving a Junior High School is an advantage. Lee Ross, '23. Page Fifty-ive 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 the bazar. 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 Lawrence Hayes, '23. 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. Page Fifty-six 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, Page Fifty-seven Q 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- hundred-twenty pupils. 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. Helen Friend, '22. Zonah Moore, '22. Football 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 Page Fifty-eight 4 if f.1-.safe 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. John Dider, 523. 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 courtesy. Student Council 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 meeting. 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. The officers of the Student C'-lunczil are as follows: President, Paul Zarnong Secretary, Alice Cox: Treasurer, Marjorie Mathews. Harriette West, SA2. Page Fifty-nine 4 T is 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 paper. 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- thing and every football boy will gladly respond. Some of our teachers and pupils should follow Mrs. Zuch's example. AMOS HIATT'S LINE-UP 1919 Roy May .................. L. E. Bernard Ofterdinger ...... Q. B. Malcolm Love... ........ L. T.
