Drake Universit Des Moines, Iowa l i onda, une 3 A number of the members of the Class cf 1921 have indicated their intention of entering our School Monday, june l3th. Special classes in which rapid progress can be made will be maintained for the benefit of these graduates. While we enroll beginning students each Monday, we especially recommend Monday, june l3th, as the best time for Des Moines grad- uates to join us. H The wisdom of taking a commercial course immediately after graduation from high school has been demonstrated in thousands of cases, and we cordially invite the young people of East High, who look forward to employment in business, to enroll with us on the l3th to begin the preparation they must make if they are to be really successful in the commercial field.

J 4 fin Ullemoriam BEN MILLER. Though there are many students in East High, the place Ben Miller held in our hearts can never be filled. Death has taken him from us, but the sunshine of his cheery smile and friendly disposition still remains. - In the few brief years he lived Ben had no chance to do the big things of life, but he fulfilled the little duties with a willing spirit. Life had many interests for him. He was fond of swimming, and other athletics. For the future he had planned to go to the banking school at Iowa City. In his life he contributed much to the interests of his school and to us he has given that which can never be taken away, the memory of a friend., His death has brought us sadness, but we are happy in the thought that we were permitted to be with him even so short a time. Having once known Ben we will always know him. We will always have the happy remembrance of his smile and boyish face. As we leave East High and go into the world of work which he will never know, we will take with us the memory of a friend who once known, will never be forgotten. MR. HALL Mr. .Iohn Hall, a veteran of the Civil NVar, and for many years janitor and ardent supporter of East High, died last summer. In order that his memory mal be perpetuated among the students of the school, we place this tribute in our annual. He had been with us for so long a time that we were shocked and grieved to learn of his death, for he was a favorite and friend of us all. He was a patriot in our school, backing us in our enterprises, and taking a per- sonal interest in the welfare of East High. He rejoiced in our victories, and sympathized with us in our defeats. He has left as a permanent memorial a record of loyal service to his country, and though his name will never be found in the pages of history, we are proud to say that he was our friend. In our hearts the memory of his cheerful, fatherly ways, and friendly interest in our school will never grow dim. 9 49: P- H5542 it-.if PJ- an .,, -ld, .

SENIORS OF 1921 Today we are gathered together As Seniors of Twenty Oneg VVe've climbed this far up the path of Life And our high school days are done. Though the path was rough and rocky As we ascended higher, Some smooth and level stretches Helped us nearer our desire. We passed the Freshman milestone With courage and' spirits high, All pushing and working together, Our watchword was "Do or Die." The second milestone soon was passed And our high school work half o'er. But withcolors high, and full of "pe-p"n We were anxious and ready for more. We never lagged nor strayed behind When the Junior year was passed, But went right on, through thick and thin Till Seniors we were, at last. Our guides and loyal companions As we were struggling along, Were our parents and faithful teachers Who inspired us to be strong. But now we have our Commencement And really begin our work. We will start on soon up the narrow path And we've -learned that we must not shirk. Let us keep our eyes on that golden peak, The goal of a worth while life, Cheer the fellow who's fallen down And help him in his strife. Yes, we are leaving East High School But our memory lingers yet, When looking back on the path we've climbed These four years, we'll never forget. Just one word more to you, my friends, It's engraved o'er the door, you'll find "For the Service of Humanity," Is what we should keep in mind. ITEMS FROM THE DIARY OF A MEMBER OF THE CLASS OF 1921 '17-'l8. Attended my first assembly today. Am beginning to feel as if I was really a member of East High. Even sang a little of America when the rest of the school did. Awfully hard to keep quiet, though, when the others do., The faculty were on the platform, and I couldn't pick out a one I'd care to have. One of the fellows who's been in high school a whole year called me freshie, and said I looked mighty green. --XVent to iindhmy classes today. Found I had been assigned to an "A" freshman class, and was scared to death. Wish I was an "AH freshman. Got two classes on the third floor and two in the basement. Got one teacher that is fairly good looking, two that are worse, and one that is worse yet. -Had what they called a pep meeting. Gave one yell myself, butueverybody looked at me, so I didn't yell any more. Pep meetings I guess are just for seniors to yell in. -Had another pep meeting today. Lot more noise than before. Most of the fresh- men are beginning to whisper the yells. Probably before long we'll be yelling like the rest. -West High beat East High in football. I marched home with the rest shouting rickety rackety rus what's the matter with us. We made more noise than if we had won. So hoarse I can't talk. -Dicken's Christmas Carol given in assembly today. Enjoyed very much. -We freshmen gave a program for St. Valentine's Day in assembly. We'll show these seniors we're almost as' good as they are. -I'm an "A" freshman today. Getting up in the world, am I not? -Vachel Lindsay sang for us today. "King Solomon had three hundred oxen, we are his oxen," according to him. ' -Had seven assemblies today. The Belgian soldiers came, and we stood up and cheered, and one of them sang the "Marsellaise." Wish I was a Belgian. -Had a four minute speaking contest today, and one of our class took third. Hurrah for us freshmen. -Seniors came home from their breakfast this morning, and paraded around the halls. Wish I was a senior. -Today was the last day of school. All the seniors were up on the platform. How small the new freshmen are! G '18-'19. -Back' in school again today. One of the teachers remembered me. Guess they're glad to see me back. -Heard they are going to have to let school out on account of the ilu. Hurrah for the ilu, only hope it don't catch me. -Today the armistice was signed. Whole school marched down town, shouting and everything. A man gave me five cents because I madelmore noise than he could. -Vacation's over, and back to school. Having to go until 3:30. Seems like I was back in grade school. -Chose the team for the Victory Loan speaking contest. Three sophomores are on it. Hurrah for our class! -East High won the Victory Loan contest. It was our sophomores that did it. of course. 38 A CLASS REUNION IN 1955 Time: 1955. Place: Somewhere in Des Moines. fEveryone is talking as the curtain risesl. Hazel Snyder: There aren't very many here tonight, are there? Dorothy Pearson: No, not as many as there used to be. Elliott Guild: This looks like some wireless apparatus. Do you know why it is here? Ben Lingenfelterz We sent a message to Mars about two months ago and we are expecting an answer any minute. You see John Budd and Harold Divine went up in an aeroplane about a year ago and have never returned. We think they are on Mars because Dorothy Stearns and Minnie Lucas, when looking through a telescope detected what looked like a great disturbance on the planet. They thought it might be caused by the landing of John and Harold. We are in hopes that we will get a message tonight. Helen Weissinger: Wouldn't that be interesting? Marjorie Green: Yes, but while we're waiting, shall we read some of the mes- sages that have come from other members of the class? Albert Sterzing: That is a good idea. Come on, folks, and help yourselves. iMyFJn 'WesE I Wei, h5e isa teTegraTn him Charles Wiley. Wfulmpossible fer- us to come. The baby has the measles." Does anyone know what he's doing? Ben Lingenfelter: Yes, he is a doctor in Colfax, Iowa. 'Vernon Hammontree: Listen to this. Edwin McDonald and Maurine Sandahl are on an Orpheum Circuit in a Scotch stunt. Ed plays the bagpipes and Maurine dances the Highland Fling. Albert Sterzing: Roger Tornell has sent us a message with a Chicago return on it. He says that he and Virginia Buck are playing Macbeth and Lady Macbeth with Ralph Brown as manager. They will be in Des Moines soon. Helen Weissinger: Stuart Ball says he can't come to the reunion because he is busy working on a history called "The Origin of High School Journalism." And Q was buying a book for my little grandson when I saw one written by Stuart and called "Nursery Rhymes." Of course I bought it. Earl Gritton: I saw John Scovel the other day. He is a minister in Carlysle. He was telling me about a circus that was in town. Curtis Meek was the ringmaster. I'd like to see him. Elliott Guild: Fridolf Hanson was in town about a month ago. He was selling hair tonic then, but he told me he was planning on going into the soap business soon. , Dorothy Pearson laughing: Isn't this funny? Bessie Adams, Bertha Clark, and Gladys Ward are running an auto repair shop in Portland, Oregon. Leslie Williams is their stenographer. I pity the automobiles. Mildred Schooler: I have some news here of Frances McKee and Florence Pet- erson. They are editors of a newspaper in Hawaii, Florence makes the news and Frances writes it up. fThe wireless board begins to tick. Everyone listensb. Albert Sterzing: Quick! Can anyone take the message? Ben Lingenfelter: Yes, I'm a telegraph operator. tHe takes the message and then answers itJ. Myrtle Mutchler: Oh, hurry, Ben, tell us what they say. Ben Lingenfelter: This is their message. "We are up here on Mars. Say, you ought to come up. They treat us fine- here. The people seem to think we're angels and we live on angel food cake all the time. They talk Latin. We're sorry 41 e . now we never took it in East High. We'll be back in Des Moines sometime next year and when we go the next time we are going to take a Latin dictionary with us. We received your message and Wish we could be at the reunion. John and Harold. Vernon Hammontree: Oh, this so exciting! I think I shall go to Mars on my vacation. I love angel food cake! Myrtle Mutchler: I suppose we'll have to come down to earth again. Here is a letter from Harold Runningand Orville Barker. They have a Mens' Beauty Parlor in Boston, and are bachelors. How did they escape? Helen Weissinger: I wish someone knew what Mary Dailey is doing. Georgine Scott: I have a letter here from her. She and Frances Fraley are dressmakers in Spikeville, Missouri. They are busy making a trousseau for Verona Farrand who is going to marry a rich farmer near there. Dorothy Pearson: I wonder if there is a message from Bertha Holt. I haven't heard from her for a long time. 'Ben Lingenfelter: She sent a card. Minta Morgan, Larene Streitler, and Bertha run a Hairdressing establishment in Unionville, Michigan. Hugh Gallagher: This is fine. East High girls on the Big League Team. Marjorie Green: What? Hugh Gallagher: Rosie Cervi, Edith Latta, and May Vander Linden are on the Girls Big League Team in Cincinnati. Myrtle Mutchler: Well, well, poor Marvel Brubaker! ' Helen Weissinger: What's the matter with him? Myrtle Mutchler: He was refused a patent for a new kind of baby rattle and will have to keep a peanut stand again. Hazel Snyder: Well, East High graduates are in the movies, but I would never have believed it of LaVerne Lemmon. I Myrtle Mutchler: What about him? Hazel Snyder: Listen to his letter from the Hollywood Studios. Perhaps you have heard-of the picture "The Duke of Killarney." I'm the Duke. My screen name is Percy Keats.

Elliott Guild: Margaret Hargis, Naomi Williams, and Ethel Ewing have a dancing Studio in New York. Helen Weissinger: Did you know that Cleo Davis is a kindergarten teacher in Illinois? Hazel Snyder: No, and did you know that Helen Ekdahl has a rabbit ranch? She was always so fond of Bunnies. Vernon Hammontree: At last I have found a letter from Gladys Springer. She is selling music in the Davenport Music store, and Verna' Hartman, and Mildred 42 2e , ' t Zig Mock sing in the same store, and in the Methodist Choir. ' Marjorie Green: This is astonishing. Mildred DeLay and Catherine Lewis are aviatresses. I never thought a high position like that would appeal to Catherine. Mildred Schooler: I am glad to hear from Margaret Phillips. She is in Paris for her health. She was an actress in New York, playing little Eva in "Uncle Tom's Cabins when she had a nervous breakdown and had to cancel her contract. She says in her letter that she met Iva McNutt who is a manager of a perfume factory in Paris, and had lunch with her. Albert Sterzing: Well, Russell Jones will soon be famous.

Albert Cervi and Bernard Collins are lawyers near there. Albert Sterzing: At last here is a letter from Jay Mitchell. He is Speaker of the House of Representatives. I knew Jay would have a noble future with such a noble start. And Bob Hartung is Secretary of the Treasury! We used good judgment in electing some of the oflicers didn't we?

' A STUDENTS PROGRESS When I had come out of the City of Knowledge I lay down and slept and dreamed a dream. I saw a small boy who from his dress I judged to be about twelve years old. Presently a ragged urchin of about the same age came up and asked him to go with him. But the first boy said: "No, I have just learned of the great high school where one learns all sorts of things and of the shining diploma one receives ,when he has a certain amount of knowledge, and how one can go higher and higher to college and get more diplomas." But the ragged boy said: "H'm, what's the use, it's much more fun to Iish and swim and play ball. You'd better stay with me and have fun and not go seeking strange places." But the little boy refused for he wanted to see the City of Knowledge. So he entered upon his high school life and became a student. But this life was not easy. A great Slough of Despond stretched between him and the solid ground at the foot of the mountain, on whose top he could faintly discern his diploma. The slough was covered with many slips of paper, some pink, some white, all of which he must hang on to save him from Everlasting Doom. At the edge of the Slough of Despond was a pool of filthy water called the pool of Book Learning. In the pool were hidden holes, of rules to be learned, speeches and poems to be memor- ized, problems to be worked, all before he could get out of the pool. Beyond this were concealed pits called Fear of the Principal, Making of Programs and In- ability to Iind Rooms, which had to be crossed. The Student's progress was difficult: he sank many times in the Slough and was almost suffocated. He failed to find necessary hidden holes. He fell into the pits but he kept on. Many times he was tempted to turn back with those who had started with him and were afraid to go on, but always the sight of his diploma on the mountain top goaded him on and he reached the other side of the Slough in safety. On this side of the Slough, was a mountain called the Hill of Difiiculty. The side of the hill was covered with rocks and stones. These stones were English, General Science, Latin, Civics, Mechanical Drawing and Public Speaking, nearly , 4 4 -9 ' Zfis all of which had to be climbed over. One precipice which was very steep and almost unavoidable Was Algebra, and the Student trembled when he came to it. But he toiled faithfully on. Half way up the rock called English he lost his hold and fell to the bottom and had to start over again. Finally, however, he scrambled over the last rock, only to find that he had ascended only a foothill of the mountain and the real Hill of Difficulties was farther away. Stretching before him was a valley called the Valley of Humiliation. The Student did his best to avoid this valley but one day he was led into it by Dis- order who at the time was traveling with him. They were talking and laughing and having an enjoyable time, but they were disturbing Studious and Care who were working away. But Order who was directing other students noticed the disturbance and said to the Student. "Are you talking and laughing and making all this racket?" The Student looked up startled. "Yes," he said. "Go and tell Justice of this, he will teach you to mend your ways, then come back gtozme. fYoufmust spend a week in this valley." When the Student got out of the Valley of Humiliation he struggled' on toward the Hill of Difficulty. On his way he was told he must prepare a speech. He was given a choice of several dull topics and was told to find the material about it for himself. The Student hunted for days but could find nothing. Finally he was seized by a huge terrible giant called Giant Despair who cast him into a deep dark dungeon where he found all sorts of material but none about his subject. Every day Giant Despair threatened to throw him back in the Slough of Despond, but the Student pleaded with him and he left him in the dungeon. At last in a secluded corner of the dungeon the Student found the desired materialg the walls of the dungeon fell away and let him go free, and he hurried away to the Hill of Diriiculty on whose top shone his diploma. This hill was much steeper than the first but the Student had had some experi- ence so he kept on. As he ascended this hill Geometry problems, historical events and bugs and insects impeded his progress. As he climbed farther up and strug- gled over American History and foreign languages he met with Patience and Per- sistence who helped him along. Mathematics and English were laboriously scaled and he came to a high overhanging precipice called Physics. He slipped and lost his footing hopelessly on this rock until finally he met Concentration who saved him from plunging to his death and succeeded in pulling him on top of the rock. So he struggled on, scaling Chemistry, Economics and Trigonometry after many Weeks of struggle. Now and then there was a break in the rock and he and other struggling students stopped for a picnic or party or a play, and then scrambled on. At last the Student scaled the last rock and reached the top of the hill. Here he saw a fair plain strewn with sweet fiowers. On it was his diploma, shining with a, dazzling light. The Student walked as in a dream. At last he reached his diploma and laid his hand upon it and felt exuberantly happy. But as he stood for a moment looking beyond to the future of college which awaited him he felt a strange desire and dread as to what the future held for him. But there I awoke, leaving my Student with his future before him, and realized that I had dreamed a Student's progress just as Bunyan dreamed a Pilgrim's pro- gress. 45 e1'2 fist HELPFUL HNTS FOR WOULD-BE STARS BY MAGNOLIA. Query: People tell me I bear a marked resemblance to Verona Farrand. Do you think it would be possible for me to understudy her? Ans: You should write her for information or arrange for an interview. It is rumored she is leaving the screen for the stage when her contract expires June 10. Query: What does Gladys Springer curl her hair with? I have tried everything but I can't make mine look right.

Ans: Mr. McDonald is to succeed William S. Hart when Bill retires from the screen so your wish will be fulfilled. - Query: What is the name of Lurene Stevenson's next picture and who is her director? Ans: Miss Stevenson's picture has as yet no title. Mr. Wiley is her director. Query: What does Jay Mitchell do to grow so tall? I have tried all kinds of exercise which caused me to break my hip when vaulting a pole. Ans: Mr. Mitchell says it's hereditary, not developed. You should not attempt such violent exercise. Query: I am simply mad for a picture of Elliott Guild. Where can I get one? Is it true that he is a musician? Ans: I think you will Hnd a picture of him in this issue, or mail him a stamped addressed envelope and 25c and perhaps he will send you one. Mr. Guild plays a saxophone in the Baker orchestra.

Ans: He intends to take a rest and speculate in oil stock before he signs his contract with the Grinnell company. Query: How does Roger Tornell keep his books and papers so neat? Is he as neat and particular off the screen as on it? Ans: Mr. Tornell says it is "system.', "There should always be a system for everything." As far as we know he is always the same on or off the screen, at least his friends all say so. Query: Are Virginia Buck's eyes brown or black and how old is she? Ans: That is very hard to say. They vary, sometimes being brown and some- times black. As for her age, well she's been a star for four years and went on the stage at the age of five. Figure it out for yourself. Query: Someone told me James Deskin's hair was red. I always thought it was brown. Which is it and is he Scotch? Ans: We call his hair burnished copper. As for his nationality, well, James can be English, Scotch, Irish or most anything, and since we stated once that an Italian was a Pole we never attempt to guess nationality by last names. Query: Why does Frances McKee always take character parts and look so solemn? She would make a charming heroine. Ans: She says it's because she's kept so busy thinking of funny things to make the hero or heroine laugh at the right time that she can't stop to enjoy them. As for character roles elderly characters never laugh and it would be impossible to think up jokes to amuse yourself. 46 i THE NINTH GRADE CLASS RAM: CLASS THE TENTH G GRADE CLASS NTH T1-nc ELEVE 'bv CLASS B THE TwE1,1f'rH f-Q2 ...Q X Editor-in-chief ......

Each one was tagged as he entered, and later on the official hand-shaking was carried out in a systematic manner. Every person twice shook hands with every other person there, and twice introduced him to someone else. The customary grand march and a conversational promenade provided the en- tertainment for the first part of the evening. Before the dancing and refreshments, a few clever impromptu stunts were done. Marvel Brubaker failed to materialize when it came time for his clog dance. He seemed to be just a little bashful. Gladys Springer, Charles Wiley, Iva McNutt, and Harold Running sang a very creditable quartette. When called upon for some antiseptic dancing, Jay Mitchell, Harold McGaffee, and Stuart Ball chose to do a futurist dance, which consisted of a long face, folded hands, and absolute immobility. Q The stunts were followed by dancing and refreshments. SPIRITS F OOLED , Friday the thirteenth, a broken mirror, a ladder leaning against the wall- they all mean something. The Seniors planned a party for Friday the thirteenth of May, and tried to fool the spirits by camouflaging themselves in costumes. It was necessary for them to be at school earlier in the day, though, so the jinx got them before they put on their costumes,-they had to dress in the dark, unless they were early birds, because the lights were turned off over the entire village. The costumes ranged from rompers and Bo-peep to that of the Evil One Himself, and from the Revolution to 2500 A. D. While the crowd was gathering, drop the handkerchief and kindred games were 54 i.w.,,.-efe ' s i i - xx Ns Xsaxss indulged in. The grand march led under a ladder at the door way, over to the main building, and back to the gym via the tunnel and locker rooms. Prizes were awarded for the most artistic, and the funniest, and a booby prize was given. Marie McNerney won the first prize for the artistic costume, a.1 East High pennantg Marvel Brubaker won the prize for the funny costume, a horn and a rubber ballg and Anne Preinitz, one of the gold dust triplets, won the booby prize, a kewpie doll. Q After the prize awards, the Maypole was tangled and untangled very gracefully. The rest of the evening was spent at dancing and refreshments. MOVING DAY EXERCISES On Friday the twentieth of May, memorial exercises in recognition of the ninth anniversary of moving day were held in front of the building. The Senior Class, which had charge of the exercises occupied the steps and faced the rest of the school. After the opening music, Mrs. Snyder, speaking to the school, performed one of our Mr. Deemer's last requests, the presentation of a picture of the Kinsman Post Drum Corp. Since the Corp has become a part of East High tradition, it was deem- ed proper by all concerned, that it be done on such an occasion. It was accepted for the school by Mr. Burton. The Star Spangled Banner was then sung. The three speakers for the day were Stuart Ball, Fridolf Hanson, and John Scovel. Their speeches presented the past, the present, and the future accomplish- ments of East High. The school song, the dedication paragraph read in unison, and "America" closed the service. ' ln taking charge of these exercises the Senior Class has established a precedent which it hopes will be followed by all future classes. JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Just as women have, by their entrance into politics, wrought a great change in party principles and caused a great deal of stir in political realms so has the introduction of the fair sex into the Junior Chamber of Commerce speeded up the work and advanced the ideals and purpose of the organization. When the Junior Chamber first started out last fall, the necessity for new life, new vigor and new purpose became apparent and at last, after several attempts along other lines, the Fates turned their attention to the girls and as a result, the boys found themselves far better off with the girls lending a hand in the adminis- tration. Now, as we look back over the year, it seems impossible that the organi- zation ever existed and achieved the things it has without the girls of the school having a hand in it. Although, there is a girls' division and a boys' division for the sake of more efiicent training for work, the girls and boys meet on a common ground in the administration of affairs in the organization. Still in the period of growth and dev'elopment, the Junior Chamber is a striking example of what com- bined efforts on the part of the students can accomplish in the way of preparing for life and East High is thankful that there has come a realization of the neces- sity for a union of its young men and women to produce real results and is proud of the record the Junior Chamber of Commerce has established in the past year. 5 5 . w , E w X.. A ... a O 1 O X In w O I ' Z P E 5 E Z E F- 4 , T13 t life I THE BOYS' HI-Y The dream of Christian men and boys' of an organization which would combine Christianity and the worlds business in such a way that the the necessity of one to another would clearly be realized has surely come true in the Boys' Hi Y. The purposeful attitude of the members and oiiicers which has characterized the Hi Y, has put things over, while an organization which lacked that attitude could not even contemplate the work. Because it is a work of service to everyone, the element of joy and happiness has lightened every task. ' Good feeds, which are the nearest and quickest way to a niansflheart, good fel- lowship, which is the only spirit in which big things can be accomplished, and a nearness to Christ and his teachings, in the atmosphere of which true success is the only possible result, have all been characteristic of the meetings of the Hi Y. May it be that the cabinet which is already at work on next years plan and the members who are eagerly looking forward to next year's work, will be able to create the same spirit of joy in the service of others, the same atmosphere of true fel- lowship, and may they have the environments of last year to aid them in their future work. ' 57 Q p . lf miie f . 1 THE FORENSIC CLUB The Forensic Club has finished a very successful year from a literary as well as from the social standpoint. The club was divided into two large groups, each group having seven teams and each team having a debate with a team from the opposite group. The final debate was won by Charles Wiley and Randolph Ruhley. The two open programs were joint meetings with the E Epi Tan, the Forensic Club winning the first debate, and the E Epi Tan the second, thus dividing the honors. On January 19, the Club was royally entertained by the Girls' Dramatic Club at a dance in the gym. In return the Club entertained the girls' at a picnc at Union Park on May 13. - Perhaps the biggest event of the year occurred the night following April 30. The fellows packed up their blankets and eats, and journeyed in cars to Polk City to a camping hut. After the initiation of some new members, a great calamity befell when the bed broke down under an over supply of occupants. In the morning we ate a breakfast cooked ourselves and voted to have another hike sometime soon. Graduation will take away many valued members, a fact which the club regrets. They are proud however, of the fourteen members who will leave in June. The Forensic knows that they will be good leaders in whatever work they take up. The club wishes to thank the faculty for their co-operation, which it feels has con' tributed at all times to its success. 58 E EPI TAN As Father Time closes the journal of this school year, the members of the E Epi Tan Literary Society are proud that they can look back over their work with the feeling that they have really accomplished something in the way of preparing them- selves for the future. The' purpose of the society, when organized, was the pre- paration of its members for good citizenship, and the creation of a desire for the same principles throughout the school and community. With each program the work has been pushed forward and with each new mem- ber, the ultimate .attainment of the goal has been assured. Although the mem- bership is greatly lessened by the Seniors who are graduating, they have the assur- ance that they have left successors who will carry on the work with the same courage, and with the same purpose of mind. The record of the achievements of the society indeed warrant the pride which each member feels. In addition to the unusually profitable programs which have been presented at the regular meetings, several super events stand out as mile- stones on the Road of Progress. Defeated by the Forensic in a debate early in the year, the E Epi Tan returned the challenge and retrieved itself and the reputation of the Debating Society by winning two debates and tying a third one in an interesting debating program. A peppy extemporaneous debating contest in which Victory finally passed the crown of a hotly contested championship to Ralph Stutsman, helped keep up interest in the society while a number of open meetings worked up interest in debating among the other students and friends of the school. The Society is closing this year with two of the biggest and best events of the whole period. On May 23, the Senior team, consisting of H. Gallegher, R. Ringrose and S. Neuman, will debate the North High Debating Club on the question of Philippine independence. The event which has been looked forward to by the members for some time will be held Friday, May 20 when the members and their lady friends will close the year with a picnic at Grandview Park. ' 59 'l" 'Q Q X l THE BAND The band has just completed the second successful year in its history. The band which was organized last year continued all through this year, and with the valuable experience which was gained from last year's practice, together with the practice that the members have recently received, the band has discarded much of the music which has been mastered. The band helps to put pep into assemblies, football games, and track meets. XVhen the band plays the school song, it fills us all with enthusiasm, and makes us feel like singing it with all our might. Because East's band is a pep maker, it has become a necessary and important organization of the school. 60 THE BOYS' AND THE GIRLS' GLEE CLUBS The Girls' Glee Club has been organized since the beginning of the year but the boys, Club was not organized until the beginning of the second semester. Since each of these clubs was organized they have been practicing regularly, the boys on Monday and Wednesday and the girls on Tuesday and Thursday. Some one is always wanting the Glee Clubs to sing and the Clubs do their best to entertain their audiences. The boys seem to think that they can sing better than the girls but the girls tell another story. When the two clubs sing together it is hard to tell which of the two is superior so both sides still maintain their opinions and cannot be con- vinced diierently. The two Glee Clubs sang in the May Festival which was given at East High School, May 6. The boys sang two numbers and the girls also sang two nutnbersg then the two together sang the last number. The boys and girls like picnics as well as they like singing and the picnic which the two clubs had on May 25 was a success. VVith this picnic ended the Glee Clubs work for this year. 'dei ,Q A X if Q3 THE NOIRISIA-KTA TRAINIXG CLUB THE ORCHESTRA 62 9 t ig s PHILOMATHEAN LITERARY SOCIETY This year's work has meant much to the Philo girls. A new interest was created when the club was divided into two groups, each group furnishing entertainment and a social hour for one meeting. The iirst group gave a play and later served delicious homemade candy. Much curiosity developed when the girls appeared at school wearing their new monograms, in the club colors. Apparently everyone in school asked what they stood for. The party at which the Philos entertained the Boys' Glee Club and the mem- bers of the E. Epi Tan was an enjoyable affair. Many games were played in which Mr. Burton, Mr. Warren, and Miss Wood, putting dignity after pleasure, joined with the' merry crowd. Following the election of ofhcers at the last meeting, group two entertained the society, serving refreshments and furnishing entertainment, making this meeting a fit culmination for the work of the year. We feel that we owe much of this year's progress to Miss Wood, our faculty advisor, and Hazel Snyder, our president. They, as well as the other oflicers, did everything in their power for the advancement of the society. Zannah Moore. 63 Q Sis TENNIS CLUB What's the matter with the Tennis Club. They're all right! And of course you heartily agree after seeing the style in which they played off the various tournaments last year and this. The boys' and the girls' Senior Tennis Club have a tournament of Singles each year, but this year a mixed double tourna- ment was added which has been even more fun than the singles. It was surprising to iind how well the mixed doubles were played off and all the games proved very interesting. The winners, Clara Hinricks and Julius Swartz, played many hard games before they iinally became champions of East High. Last year in the Girls' Singles Clara Hinricks was the champion and won the silver cup. Virginia Buck was runner up and played a very good game, making Clara play hard for all her points. In the Boys' Singles, Julius Swartz was the champion and Max Shoemaker the runner up. This year the Singles are being played with even more pep than last, and are bound to prove interesting. '64 , T2 , X iii 5: THE STUDENT COUNCIL As another school year nears the boundary between reality and memory East High is glad to look back upon the achievements of its Student Council and be able to say "Well done." Two semesters of hard, yet enjoyable and prolitable work have made better public workers of every member of the Council, and have produced a far better atmosphere of school spirit and co-operation in which the student body as a whole has grown stronger physically, mentally, and morally. Planning assemblies and programs for social hours, putting over ticket sales for entertainments, and disposing of general school matters, is in itself enough to earn them commendation. However, when one considers the dozens of other extra routine duties which the Council has assumed, of which the Clean Up Cam- paign is a good example one begins to realize the importance of the Student Coun- cil and the great service it renders to the school. It is then that we can truly appreciate our opportunity in having a representation government and be thankful that we have among us those who are able to create a. co-operative spirit, and to make our school the "finest institution in America." Our earnest wish is that all coming administrations will be able to advance the work which this administration has so well begun, and that all future student bodies will have the same -spirit of helpfulness which has lightened the tasks of this yearis Student Council, 65 THE LATIN CLUB ' A high school club's prosperity is measured by the number of its members and their interest in the club. The Latin Club has a membership of seventy-five per- sons, all of whom take part willingly in the programs. The membership is limited to those who take Latin but in spite of this fact, the Latin Club is one of the lead- ing clubs in the school. ' This extraordinary success is due to a number of reasons. First and foremost we have as faculty advisors the three Latin teachers who boost for opportunity in the classroom. We realize that "three heads are better The programs have carried out the purpose of the club, that is, they us of Roman habits and customs. We were interested in learning how conducted their schools and how they christened their children. The constitution was entirely out of date and inadequate for our and, in view of these conditions, We revised it. The constitution as it guarantees certain rights and privileges, such as classroom credit for us at every than one." have taught the Romans membership stands now, work in the club. But a large membership while making possible and expedient the granting of privileges creates certain obligations. Failure to meet these obligations is met in various Ways. For instance, if a committee fails to report at a given time it is awarded a zero instead of the usual classroom one. The officers for the first semester were: John Bloem, president, Lucile Brody, vice-president, Alice Miller, secretaryg Claire Yohe, ianitorg Zanah Moore, ianitrix. The officers for the second semester Were: Claire Yohe, presidentg Madalynn Philleo, vice-presidentg Kathryn Fulton, secre- taryg Malcolm Love, ianitorg fRaymond Shaw filled his unexpired termjg Helen Lightfoot, ianitrix. The Latin Club looks forward to the next year and hopes for as successful and prosperous a season as it has enjoyed this year. Claire Yohe, '22. 66 l ONE" yum HRVPYY 'Rrl4x 'xi?-Ff""5"" T..

It is comparatively easy to entertain an audience with something humorous, but to undertake a production of more or less serious nature illustrating great moral truths is almost beyond the scope of amateur players. That our players succeeded was demonstrated by the manner in which their performance gripped the audience of grown ups on the first evening. Seldom if ever does an audience of that charac- ter give the approval to amateurs that this one accorded to the principals, Stuart Ball and Margaret Phillips, in the ovation they received at the close of the third act. Every other member of the cast rose to their parts in the same way, and an- other "best high school play ever given" was added to our list. It was demon- strated once again that in the little woman behind the scenes, Miss Corey, we have a "master mind" in the direction of plays.

Broadhurst play, "What Happened to Jones? The cast was Well chosen, and all the parts were successfully interpreted. Jones, a gambling hymn book salesman, who, through an amusing turn of cir- cumstances found himself in the home of Prof. Ebenezer Goodly, was able to ex- tricate himself from the muddle only by masquerading as the Bishop of Ballarat, by lying copiously, and by inducing others to keep him company in his duplicity. It all ended Well, but poor Ebenezer barely escaped a nervous collapse. The scenery was good, and the play gave evidence of being well directed.

They have made enviable records, and boosters Black can review with pride the accomplishments of the past ball team last fall, did not lose a game and they were scored on out the season. The scores made by the track team were won of the Scarlet and season. Our foot- but twice through- against keen com- petition. The most points won by the team was in the city meet, which they won by a lead of 26 points. The swimming team captained by Ellis Conkling won the city swimming meet and showed excellent form in both the Ames and the Iowa City meets. Taking the whole year into consideration East High has had a great year in sports as the tables will show.

They are working hard and are de- termined to win a position on the team next fall. They realize that it takes a lot of hard persistent effort to make an excellent football player, but evidently they think the reward well worth the hard work. These fellows offer a good example to the freshman who goes out for the iirst time but gets discouraged because he does not make the team. If he will stick to it and go out for practice regularly, then when he does make the team there will be very few men better fitted to play his position. 77 THE 1920 FOOTBALL- TEAM 79 e'f'-2 H me ..,..................,.,..., me A,x. .,,. . as I . M., an me 4 -pf..-i...... SWIMMING In the past year East High made its first appearance in the interscholastic swimming meets at Ames and Iowa City. At the beginning of the year it looked doubtful whether Mr. Russell, swimming instructor for the Des Moines High Schools, would be able to develop a winning team, but hard work combined with the interest and enthusiasm showed by the members of the swimming team en- abled him to turn the trick. , The first contest was in February when our team swam its way to victory and defeated '-both West and North, winning the city Swimming Championship, and bringing home two silver loving cups. At the Ames meet and the Iowa City meet our team, battling hard against ex- perienced teams, won fourth and fifth places. Ellis Conkling, captain and biggest individual point winner, with Nate Ginsberg and George Turbett, both big point winners, will be with the team again next year and give promise of doing big things. As a reward for their excellent pool work, Marion Hawk, Nate Ginsberg, Myron West, Ellis Conkling, and George Turbett were given swimming monograms. In preparation for their next year's work the swimming team named Myron West as Captain-elect for 1921-1922. 5980 2 . s THE 1921 TRACK TEAM EAST HIGH RECEIVES LOVING CUPS Several times this spring the athletes have presented the school with trophies of their victories. These trophies were for the most part loving cups which will be added to our already large number and placed in the trophy case. In the Hrst of these assemblies Ellis Conkling, captain of the swimming team, presented to the school the City Championship cup and at the same time he gave to the school's custody a three-year cup which our swimmers must win two more years in succession before we can claim it permanently. In the second assembly the school was enriched by three cups, track team trophies from the city meet which were presented by Captain O'Dell. He pre- sented us, in the third assembly, with two cups from the Grinnell meet. Besides the cups a banner for first place in the shuttle race was won at the Drake Relays. SPRING GOLF On April 4, 1921 East High opened its golf season with a very successful spring tournament. Sixteen players qualified for this event and despite the weather conditions, all the rounds were played on schedule. The tournament closed after a close game, with Marsden Jones winning the school championship from Wilbur Bjork. In the interscholastic match six boys representing East High played the team from West High on the Grandview links. Although West High was successful in defeating our team, all the matches were close and some good scores were turned in. The team chosen by Mr. Hostetter to represent East High was Raymond Shaw, Ira Allen, Marsden Jones, Richard Jones, Wilbur Bjork, and Leslie Williams.

XYlien they advance to High School responsibilities begin to accrue. XYith college, young men and women must exercise their oxvn initiative in fulfilling their duties, and shape their characters which lead them up or doivn in later business years. As time goes by, reputations are established, which, if they are to be enviable and lasting, must be founded on merit. For over a quarter century, the Garfield has been clothing men and young men of Des Moines and central Iowa. Some of our first patrons are still Garfield customers. Each year new ones are added-old ones retained. Our established repu- tation for quality garments at honest prices must be main- tained. The responsibilities of age cannot be overlooked. Con- sequently, Garfield customers continue to dress better for less.

He heard no sound about him As the wo1f's cry met his ear And he listened to it calmly, For his mind was full of fear. The courtroom full of people Was as empty as a grave And the man that sat upon the bench Stood trembling in his cave. A scream of terror filled the air, As a woman laughed in glee, The judge pronounced him guilty, And he yelled "Hurrah-Fm free!" A DISCUSSION IN E 6 Question: "VVhat was Lady Macbeth's attitude toward her husband?l' Quick student: 'tWhy, she loved him." Aggressive student: "Aw no, she didn't. What did she go and have him kill the king for if she loved him?" Brilliant student: HWhy, she wanted him to be happy." Romantic student: "Why, he was handsome 'and she couldn't help loving a handsome man." Positive student: "She loved him because she understood him. No one would love something they couldn't understand. It's just like algebra, if you understand it you like it," f Dubious student: "What did she let him kill the king for then?" Impulsiveistudent: "Why somebody had to kill him." Down-trodden student: "Well, Why didn't they hire somebody then?" Earnest student: "Because the murderer had to be a hero." Skeptical student: "H'm she just got cheated out of being queen, so she made him kill Duncan so she could get what she wanted." Bored student: "Oh well, what if she did love him.

Q .Xb if ' T "2 THE CLASS OF '21 l've been asked to tell the story of the Class of twenty-one, Of the great things theylve accomplished and the noble deeds tl1ey've don 'l hough there are not many of them, 'twould be difficult to tell, Something good about each member, for they all have done so well. VVhen as a Freshman Class they entered, East High spirit filled each one, And with best of high school effort each worthy act by them was done. 6. As Sophomores they flourished, and their efforts were not slowg ' Helpful services they rendered, as you may already know. Members of the class enlisted for the service "over there," V3'hile the girls were busy knitting and in the great work had a share. Various high school clubs they entered and endeavored to maintain The glorious name of dear old East High, and honors for her gain. Time went on, and they were Juniors, half their high school life was o'er. But they kept right on progressing, ever trying to do more. Two more clubs were then established which would help them to attain Better poise and understanding, and other helpful knowledge gain. Plays and vaudevilles were presented where their talents were displayed. Their desires were being realized as important parts they played. And now they've reached the great ambition which they long have struggled They are wise and happy Seniors, with many pleasant things in store. All the things they long have wanted are at last within their reach, Pictures, parties, rings and nieetingsg they have had their share ot each. Soon they'll leave the realms of East High and new duties undertake, Greater obstacles to conquer, and perhaps their fortunes make. But the lessons learned in East High will be with each member still, In whatever work they follow or what places they may fill. 7 LONG, YET SO SHURT Four long years are not long after ally the time that seemed an age at Freshman debut, seems only a short space now. Take courage, you of the you classes. The day must have an end. The years have sped by without imprin many distinct memories, but they have left them all in one confused mass just one main heading, school life. Many vivid incidents, however, may be called by a slight reminder, and pictures again come clearly to mind out of YYIELSS. Besides our attending high school, many other events of importance have ta place in the past four years, making it almost unnecessary to study history w it was being made on all sides. Although we have seen nations falter and we have steadily kept up a bold front and have advanced. YVe now can say the victory is near in the future. 15 ful. Our' nger ting with re- the ken hen fail, that The Midyear Class of Nineteen-twenty-one seemed to have been started upon its high school career without the usual encouragement given to beginners. VVe were not given a chance to exhibit our sturdy heights by marching to the assembly on the route across the stage. So if any individuals have shown themselves too zealous for public notice, that fact can readily be explained. If any members of our class have shown too much speed in gaining the cafeteria, this failing and the general hungry aspect of the class may be directly traced to the fact that our class was not the guest of the Seniors, as is usually the practice in East High. But in spite of these almost unbearable discouragements our class showed that it was of the right kind and bore no one any ill will. I Our class was not an exception when it came to persecution, and we wondered, when we heard upper classmen's stinging remarks, if our maligners had ever been Freshmen. During this Hrst year of school life an entertainment was given to which admission was secured by presenting old newspapers and magazines. A picture taken then of each class member with his paper under his arm would in most cases quench the most ardent desire to be young again. As the time went on school life ceased to be a novelty in itself, so that it was up to us to make it attractive by our own actions. The time came when we changed our point of view regarding Freshmen, and in our ,turn scoded at the enthusiastic entry of the new ones. During this time assemblies were far from being scarce. The day of the visit of the Belgian soldiers was an occasion for seven assemblies. Believe it or not, the truth of this statement can be vouched for by many who still have in their memories the fun and excitement of that day. These assemblies were only a part of the many happenings that took place during this time, and we could plainly see at least one benefit as a result of the war. The fourth semester of school seems to be another interesting time. School life grows monotonous unless varied by vacations and assemblies. Although mem- ory cannot supply the details of the enforced "flu" vacations, we can almost guess that we fairly reveled in the freedom from school tasks. As Juniors the great store of knowledge or pretended knowledge weighed heav- ily upon us. We were undecided whether to have an attitude of scornful loftiness or Whether an air of condescension would be more appropriate. Nevertheless We were highly delighted in hearing William Howard Taft and Edwin Markham and we thought our time was not Wasted. K The good times, vacations and assemblies that we had enjoyed the previous semester were not to be had without paying for them. The paying this time con- sisted of our working longer and harder, but as these hardships must be endured by all, even by Freshmen, the unflinching courage with which we faced this new crisis was highly commendable. - About this time school life started to accelerate. This change was most notice- able wheniwe prepared our lessons, because it seemed that we had no time for themes. This characteristic was more noticeable when the degree of B-Senior could be attached to our names on all themes. The happiness of this last promo- tion was spoiled by the gloomy realization that we were not Seniors after all but only among the others who wander, sometimes hopeful, and sometimes hopeless, toward the time when they may wear the cap and gown. The longing for the untasted fruit was in us more acute, for we could behold the wonders at short range. The climax of our high school career is for us almost a has-been. As a child that hates to swallow a delicious piece of candy, so are we loath to give up our front seats in the assembly to others. We have had all the good times at parties and in front seats that Seniors can have, and have also abided by the golden rule when we gave the beginning class the proper encouragement in the form of a 16 . ff X party. Now we may be looked to as the highest and would well like to continue as the highest, for soon We shall iind ourselves in the same position as we found ourselves four years ago, that of beginners. I FABLES FOR FRESHMEN THE TALE OF THE LOST LOCKER KEY Once there was a little Freshman named Tom Who earned a Quarter one Evening by Selling to an Enemy of his, Three Mice which he had Caught And Dipped in white Ink so that They Looked like white Mice. Tom needed this Quarter Very much , To purchase his Locker Key, so he Took it to School the next Day and Gave it to Mr. McChesney who gave Tom Sify' A brand new Key. Now Tom was very Proud N Of his new Key and he carried it in his Hand all the first Day but the Novelty Soon wore off and then he Kept it in his Pocket which had a Hole in it and the Kev Leaked out and was Lost. Then Tom Was very Sad because a new Key would Cost another Quarter and he was not Able To Earn any more so he had to Hang his Wraps on a Hook in the Basement for Ever After. Moral: Secure Your Valuable Possessions With a Log Chain. qi . ui. , J THE TALE OF THE LAD WHO LEARNED TO STUDY Once Upon a Time, there Came to East High a little Freckled-faced, Red-headed Lad NVho got much more Amusement from Shooting paper Wads at his Friends than he got from Studying his Lessons. In fact, he Disliked Studying so much that he never Studied. Now there was in this same School a Teacher who was very Tall, and very Thin, and very Cross. This Teacher had a Strong Feeling against Freshmen who Failed to get their Latin Lessons, so the Lad was very Careful and tried to Fool the Teacher so as to make her Believe he had his Les- son when he did Not. He spent a great deal more Time trying to Figure out some Vvay to Escape work than it would have Taken to Do the Work. He bought him- self a "Pony" and took it to his Latin class and Hid it under his Book so that the Teacher might not Discover It. When he had a Test he made Excellent use of the Gentle Art of Bluiiing and thus he was Able to Pass without great Difficulty. One day this Teacher called on the Lad to read his Latin, so he Arose with his "Pony" under his Book and Started to Read, but just then a Boy who sat right behind him Started to make a Noise like that of a Pony Galloping down a Street. When he Heard the Noise, the Lad became Nervous for he Feared the Teacher would Discover his Trick. The Lad Trembled, his hand Shook, and the "Pony" Slipped from under his Book and Fell to the Floor with a Thud. He Snatched up the Book, but the Teacher had Seen and she came to his Seat and took the "Pony." Then she Asked him to Read his Latin and he could Not. For this awful Misdeed, 17' X ii,--Tig -QW? SSE she Made him stay in after School every night for Two Weeks and he Had to Learn Two Pages of Virgil a Night. Moral: Study Your Lessons or You Will Study Your Lessons and Something Else Besides. THE TALE OF THE TWO CONTRASTS IN COSTUME To East High there once Came Two little Girls who enrolled as Freshmen, Now these Girls were very ignorant of The Fashions of High School life, So they were both Dressed in Calico Aprons And they wore their hair in Braids down the But soon they Discovered the sort of Dress Vvhich it is Customary to use in Such places. s The first little Girl decided to Wear A nice, warm, wool Skirt and a Beautiful Red Middie with a big Sailor Collar ir Backs. T And some Nice wool Stockings and Brown Shoes. W The second little Girl was not Satisfied with Such Common things, so she Bought ' f A VVaist which was made Mostly of Spaces ' -' And a Skirt of very Fine Silk and i 74 Some silk Hose and some Low Pumps. Of course the Second little Girl was Considered the Prettier of the Two And she was the more Popular with the Boys ButlHer Dress Needed two Ruflles, One around the top and One around the Bottom--for She caught a Cold and had to Stay at Home XVhile the First little Girl came to School Every day and Became the Most Popular Little Girl in the Bunch.

But they were both Starved to Death For they had Eaten Nothing but Gum all So they Pushed into the Line Ahead of some of the Others.

But the ones that here are represented Are the best from Dear Old E. H. S. And the class of 1921 Is the class that is the best. We are Seniors that are happy, We are Seniors that are glad, Wetre the class that's always, always smiling When every one is feeling sad. There are classes that have gone before us, , There are classes that we leave behind, But a class that's classier than our class , Is a class that you'll never find.

Now if you'll look up the ad- dresses in the directory as I read the list I'1l write them down and have the invita- 19 ' 'i.e.a...1Q 0. like tions mailed tomorrow. The iirst is Carroll Alexander. I know he can't be here. I read his schedule in the newspaper the other day. He is to climb the McKinley building in Los Angeles next week. Who would have imagined that he'd be a human fly? Frank Anderson. Mae: Yes, Frank's address is 4300 East Boulevard. He has a shoe shining parlor there. Mabel: Where is George Andrews? . Mae: His address is given as East High. What do you suppose he teaches? Mabel: He specialized in Latin when he was at college. I suppose he teaches it, I haven't seen Mae Archer for years. Mae: Her name isn't given here. Oh, I remember now, I met Hilma Varnie working at Kresge's soda fountain some time ago and she had just received a let- ter from Mae, She is Mrs. Harold Detweller of Minneapolis, the congressman's wife. Mabel: The next name is Mary Belloma. Mae: Mary Belloma Employment Agency, 5500 Grand Avenue. She's always ready to give someone a job.

Ridgway home last night as a party was in progress, held upthe one hundred and fifty guests, and escaped before Police Sergeants Oscar Johnson and Chester Hill arrived on the scene. Miss Ellen Shope and Miss Esther Sorenson have reported the loss of diamonds valued at 320,000 Edith Carlson is next. Mae: Oh, I know where Edith Carlson is. She is principal of Lucas School. Don't you envy her? -. Mabel: Where's Millie Clark? Mae: Capital oiilce. Her poems on "Contrary to Rule" are certainly good with Erma Syndes' illustrations. I never miss a single one.

Mabel: I suppose Marion Hawk is on a Chatauqua circuit. Mae: No, he isn't. Hereis his address. Piano mover, Tenth Street and Grand Avenue. - Mabel: Lester Hayes comes next. 20 Mae: He isn't listed here. Do you suppose he is the Lester Hayes, Wall Street banker, who, we read, was robbed last week? Mabel: I suppose so. He was always getting into some kind of trouble.

The HY" sent her there about three years ago. Mabel: Ruth Jacobson. Mae: Supervisor of Girls' Reformatory, Clive, Iowa. I can imagine the dis- cipline there.

Iive been expecting something to happen to him ever since he's been in California. Isn't Helen Keogh married? Mae: No, the directory says Joy Lunch, proprietor, Sixth and Walnut Streets.

Mae: She and Ruth Weston are nerve specialists in the Flynn Building. Isn't it queer how the women are taking the place of the men doctors? I don't believe we have one man doctor in our class.

Mae: Norwoodville Coal Mine. I never imagined he would choose such a grimy vocation. Mabel: Chester Villemain has a iioral shop on Fourteenth and Walker Streets. He furnishes the schools with class fiowers at great reductions. How about Rich- ard Wallerstedt? Mae: He is still a busy man. He runs his auto repair shop on week days, and leads the Swedish Church choir on Sundays. Mabel: That completes the list: now if they can be there, we'll be satisfied.

You have decided to be a little kinder to your friends, or enemies and to be more thoughtful and considerate of those around you. You have sworn to bring your "four" of this last semester up to a "one" and never again to haunt Mr. Warrents ofiice at 8:40. If you have done all of these things, well and good. You can't back out now! You must keep your promises to yourself or lose your self-respect. Perhaps if you would make just one more, say two more, resolutions your New Year would be very happy. The first is this: To make yourself an asset to East High during the coming year and not a liability. Second. Resolve not to break one of your resolutions. Success cannot but be forthcoming to the fellow who will absolutely toe the mark and live up to the splendid things he has promised himself for the coming year. 'P The other day as I was walking through town on my way to work, I happened to be passing the five and ten-cent stores. When I was right in front of the middle one, I noticed a young fellow rushing out of the entrance. Looking neither to the right nor to the left, he bumped into a gentleman who was passing by, knocked off the fellow's hat, and made him drop a leather bag which he was carrying. I stopped to see who the boy might be, for he wore a red and black sweaterg he was evi- dently from East High. Then I received the surprise of my life, for the youth did not even seem sorry for the affair, but glowering at his victim., he muttered, "Fool," under his breath, and passed on down the street. The man gazed after him a mo- ment, then turned to pick up his hat and bag. "And to think that I too went to East High! It's not as it used to be. Nofnoj' I heard him murmur. When I got to the oliice where I work after school, I was thinking over the little incident, and as I looked around the room, I picked out the East High graduates. One girl, with a pin of '18 on her waist, was absent-mindedly looking out of the window, tapping on her desk with a pencil, and keeping time with her jaws, chew- ing fiercely on a piece of gum. Just then the manager-also a graduate of our school-who has never been known to be idle a minute, came along and everyone rushed to his place. I could not help noticing what a contrast the gum-chewer made to him. The next day a noted lecturer talked to the school in Assembly. I was sitting on one of the side sections, so that I could see the whole first floor. XNhen the speaker was about half way through, a little girl down in front who was sitting as still as a mouse, with her eyes glued to the man and mouth slightly agape, attract- ed my attention. She wasfdrinking in every word he spoke. Just behind her were two of our dignilied Senior girls. They were giggling over a piece of paper which one of them held and were perfectly innocent of hearing any of the speaker's remarks. VVhat a difference in attention! After the talk, everyone clapped, of course, but some of the over enthusiastic Freshmen in the balcony let their musi- cal nature get away with them, and clapped loudly in unison, beating time to some 27 song they were evidently humming to themselves. But---how did the speaker appreciate this reception? Did he realize the good intentions of those youngsters? You have read far enough to grasp the idea of these stories and you could give many more of the same nature. Now, because the title was omitted at the begin- ning of this page, it might be well to include it here: "How Are You Representing East High?" A Senior. OPTIMISM VS. PESSIMISM Next to the desires and purposes of the Bolshevik Government of Russia the most peculiar thing on earth is the outlook some people apparently have on life. If there is any foreign attitude of mind which will destroy the very base of American principles of Democracy and Government it is the pessimistic bee which already inhabits too many bonnets. If this attitude infected only the older people who are, in their daily struggle for a livelihood, continually facing the problems of the day, the condition would not seem so strange. But when high school students become so infected with the mania that a class period is some- times given up to the citation of uncommendable circumstances in our present- day business and social life, the situation then begins to take on a dangerous aspect. '- A few days ago in a history class, the talk drifted into a discussion of the graft which exists in the business and politics of the present day. In a short time, an optimist had about as much chance as a snowball in a teakettle. It was amusing if not enjoyable to see the way the members of the class vied with each other in bringing to light circumstances which proved that the world was actually growing worse. However, when asked what they were going to do about it, no one could offer a remedy. Now, in the first place, is there any reason for a student in high school, with all the possibilities of life before him to go about with an intellect-diseased with pessimism? Is there any chance for the efforts of the faculty to put something into our lives which will make us better citizens? Were we put on this earth to go about as minstrels singing of the calamities which assail the people? Did our forefathers labor to establish a nation which would afford us the best there is in life only for us to complain about the imperfection of the scheme? Granting that there is graft in the world today, granting that the world is unquestionably growing worse, is it for us to complain about it from dawn till dark and go around with such a long face that we stub our toes on our chins? lt's up to us who realize the conditions to let those ignorant of the situation find it out for themselves. Out of our realization we should dedicate ourselves to the task of beating down graft when our opportunity for civic improvement comes. The men of today realize their failures and are placing before us every oppor- tunity for our betterment in the hope that out of this will come the ultimate de- struction of the curse of "graft" It is for us to act when we are placed in a position where we may strike a conquering blow. But, friends, it surely is not profitable or fitting for us to allow our pessimism to poison others' lives. . We can enjoy youth only once. In a short time, we shall be called upon to take upon ourselves the task of keeping the world at its best. For the sake of our- selves and our associates let us keep our unpleasant thoughts to ourselves and encourage each other with a smile. If America goes down in defeat it will not be because she was overpowered by foreign elements or anarchy, but because the spirit of the people was not strong enough to survive its greatest enemy, pessimism, and because we failed to fulfill the obligation placed upon us by the founders of the nation. 28 A a o J . s, N Mi it p THE DIVERTING HISTORY OF A FRESHMANS SLIP Uohn Gilpin Up to Date.j - John Rogers was a scholar brave Of East High School, ,tis saidg A Freshman fellow bold was he With a little empty head. John Roger's teacher said to him UThis slip it must be signed Before you do in my class stay, So Miss Knauer run find." So Johnny hurried down the stairs In hopes that he might see If Miss Knauer was in her room, The place where she should be. Alas, for John! She wasn't there And he, poor boy, must go Unto the office in great haste, In search of her, you know. He hastened here, he hastened there, He did look all aroun' In every room and hall he rushed, He ran upstairs and down. And, oh, dear me, while flying thus, He fell upon his noseg Just then he did see her afar And so his hopes arose. A He ran so fast for fear she'd go His blood turned very cold, For he into a teacher bumped And she began to scold. But when at last he got away, ,He knew not what to do, For Miss Knauer from there was gone And his slip had vanished, too! The bell then rang and John did try Into Room Eight to get: But on the Way that slip he found And Miss Knauer he met. 29 The slip was signed and John did go With joy upon his way. Oh, ne'er again would he forget The lesson learned that day. MEMORIES The ex-service men of East High were asked by The Quill to tell their experi- ences of two or three years ago. The following were contributed: CALLS As I sat in Assembly a short time ago and heard the bugle calls blown by Mr. Arlander, I started thinking of the time when I heard those same calls day after clay, week after week, and month after month, until I knew them by heart. I thought of the hot sun that made us sweat when drill call was sounded, and of the 1nud we hiked through for no purpose at all except just to be strolling around. But the pleasantest call of all was mess call. It brought back to me the picture of the coming to life of a seemingly deserted camp. I could see a camp as it looked tive minutes before mess call, when it seemed deserted, and then as it looked the minute mess sounded-the men coming up from anywhere and every- where. I could see them forming in long lines to the cook shack, when we were encamped in tents, and rushing madly for the mess halls, when we 'were in barracks. VVhen mess call blew, every man was on deck, sick or well, and there surely was some lively scrapping for the first place in line, because the.last man got very little, if anything at all, Roy Tillotson, '21. QUARANTE HOMMES, HUIT CHEVAUX . "Oh, the cavalry, the cavalry, and the dirty engineers, couldn't make an artil- leryman in a hundred thousand years." This song was sung oyerand over again by the artillery, who believed it, too. In fact, at times my own pride in being an artilleryman would carry me beyond all bounds and I would add much more to the verse. But one day my pride received a rude shock. As you know, the box cars in France were marked as to their capacity for men or animals. As most of the cars were of uniform size, the big white-lettered sign most in evidence was U40 Iflommes, 8 chevauxf' I was a cannonier in the battery of the famous "75fs," and in our journeys from one sector to another, I had always traveled in great state, a Ia 40 hommes. It was after the St, Mihiel drive that I received the above-mentioned shock. We were entraining for a much-needed rest in the S. O. S. The drivers were hav- ing a hard time getting the prescribed eight horses into the car. As I watched the struggle, I felt quite superior to the shouting, heaving, and cursing drivers. The horses refused to be coaxed and as it was against orders to force them. what should the "Top" do but call on some cannoniers to help with the loading. Of course, I was one of the unlucky ones. My feelings were inexpressible. To think that a cannonier should have to push some of those big, ungainly horses around. The horses were finally loaded safely in the car, and I started back to rejoin my brothers-in-arms. I didn't get far, for the first sergeant informed me that I was to be a driver until we had linished the trip. . "You can travel in car number three with the Hrst section horses," he roared. Being a dutiful soldier, I reported to car number three, and proceeded on my journey a la huit chevaux. I It was at least a week later before I could put some of the old-time feeling into these words: "Oh, the cavalry, the cavalry, and the dirty engineers, couldn't make an artilleryman in a hundred thousand years." Albert Sterzing, '2l. 30 Q X :" GRASSE Although the name rather suggests grass, Grasse is a little town in southern France, guarded on the north, east and west by the Alps, a very interesting town, beautiful and historical, its founding dating before the Crusades. I visited it three years ago at this time, on the first leave I had been granted in nearly a year. In France the children have an idea all Americans possess great wealth and have money to throw away. A group of these youngsters met us and asked for money, cigarettes, chewing gum and chocolate. Most all of them wanted to act as guides, but what is the use of having so many guides when one is enough? Our ofiicial guide told them we were poor and had no cigarettes, and thanked them for their kindness. We were allowed to go on until some other group would come pouncing down, yelling like a bunch of Indians. They, too, wanted smokes and would be guides for a few centimes. Later the guide said, "It is not advisable to give them anything. It would be all right if they would not advertise it, but give one a stick of gum and the kid population of Grasse would all be here, a nice mess to be in." Hurrying along the streets we came to a very old cathedral and a Watch tower, There are a number of these towers along the coast, and a short distance inland. Their purpose was to serve as lookouts, and links in the ancient telegraph system. 'After taking a look at the tower and cathedral, we went on to the street, again meeting some more guides waiting to show the way to a Parfumerie. We were taken through the old part of town, the streets being so narrow that at times it was nearly possible to touch buildings on either side. G-oing through this ancient part of town some of our party stopped to watch various tradesmen at work. The original group had dwindled till the guide and only a few were left. A halt was called until everyone was again present. , A group of boys was ahead shouting, but all they seemed to say was: "Ameri- can, Parfumerief' l Just around the corner was a brick building, the Parfumerie. In the doorway there stood several very kind-looking madams, all smiling, bowing and doing their best to make us welcome to their establishment. The Americans bowed, said, "Bon jour, Madainesf' shook hands, then entered the room, and were again made welcome by a man and several women. One of the women took a large bottle of perfume, and gave us, I-might say, a perfume shower, for it was nearly a bath. The walls of the room held large glass cases, reaching from the floor to the ceil- ing. On each shelf there were many bottles of various sizes and hues, each filled with the precious fluid. A table nearly the length of the room held bottles and many bars of soap. Soap is a by-product of the industry. After seeing the process of perfume making, our guide took us back to the dis- play room, and here some bought soap and perfume to their heart's content. Nearly everyone was armed with a package, Bidding the madams good-by, we left to see more of Grasse. Again we resumed our journey to more interesting parts of the city. We journeyed across town, possibly a half hour's brisk walk. until we came to the city market. Their market is quite like those in our country. Here it is warm the year round, so an enclosed building is not necessary. To keep up the reputation of Americans, we bought some more lunch, cheese, eggs, meat, wines and 'choco- late. After our seeing so much food in the market, the question was asked: "Where are we going to lunch?" The guide said: "See the big hill," pointing to a place on the mountain. t'That is Napoleon's plateau, our dinner table." On our way to Napolean's plateau, we passed a Municipal laundry, where many women were at work, some Washing, others tending the water and fires. Sev- 31 eral were busy making soap-rather efhcient, we should say, a laundry and soap factory combined. The way to the plateau was a long, hard walk, or rather climb, up steps and on a winding road. I do not remember how long we were going up, but when we reached our destination, lunches were unwrapped, and we enjoyed eating dinner under some Sycamore trees. This spot is where Napoleon at his lunch on one of his campaigns in the south. From the plateau, cities, mountains and the sea could be seeng also mountains not belonging to the Alps. As the air was very bracing, everyone enjoyed being there, and sore limbs and' aching backs were forgotten. Soon everyone was rested and the trip down was made with less effort than the trip up. Again on the streets of Grasse and feeling very well and ready to see more, we were taken to another cathedral, as large and beautiful as the first. An art IILH- seum was visited, where portraits were on display. These were so beautiful that an amateur narrator could not describe them. After so many hours of enjoyment, and sight-seeing the fellows felt rather tired and wanted to get back to Cannes. Slowly making our way through the streets, some buying -postal cards orsouvenirs, we were on our journey home to Cannes. Everyone was anxious to getback for supper, and to enjoy the theater. And this was the end of one day in the Riviera. A Raymond Knutson, '22. BUGLE CALLS As we all stood at attention facing the east listening to taps being blown on November llth, my thoughts ran back to the time when I was in camp. While a division of the army is preparing to leave the training camp, the buglers assemble and practice many of the same calls Mr. Arlander gave us when he was here. ln our camp a small lake divided the infantry from the artillery and the two buglers seemed to vie with each other as to who could blow the most perfect call. Taps seemed to be the most musical of all, as the clear, shrill call came' across the lake. The calls which grew so familiar will never be forgotten. . Beryl Bogue, '23. ON LEAVE . A happy experience connected with army life which I shall long remember was a one-week leave spent at Monte Carlo, a Riviera town, in southeastern France. Twenty-four of our company were to go, and early one morning in Feb- ruary we left camp at Allerey, and arrived the next day in Monte Carlo. The flowers were in bloom, the trees were laden with ripe fruit, and if it had not been for the useless overcoats upon our arms we should have thought it was mid- summer. We were quartered in a hotel rented by the government for soldiers on leave. The week was spent in viewing the scenery and places of interest. One of the interesting places was the Casino with its many devices for gambling. It was not being used much, but before the war the prodt from it was enough to enable its owner, the Prince of Monaco, to build a luxurious palace and to spend years in making interesting collections from the sea, the result of which is a large ceanographical museum known the world over. There was also enough profit made to pay the taxes of the principality. ' The palace and museum are built upon a high, rocky peninsula which, owing to its steep sides, was an invincible fort in medieval days to which is probably due the independence of the little country today. 32 e ' X The time not spent along the coast at Nice or Monte Carlo was spent in a trip to the interior viewing the picturesque scenery of the Alps or among the Roman ruins. This experience was soon over, closing one of the happiest incidents of my army life. Richard Ericson, '21, CHOW TIME BY MISS LIBERTY'S SIDE When Mr. Arlander blew mess call it recalled to my mind the last chow call on board ship coming home. We had just sighted the Statue of Liberty, and all of us were on deck to view the emblem we had been longing to see for so long-the emblem of Democracy and God's country. The bugler sounded mess call a few minutes after Miss Liberty hailed into view. But all his efforts were in vain, for the troops had not finished their joyous outburst of enthusiasm. Who would care to eat franks and kraut when ice cream and pie was so near? For two years all the fellows had been thinking of the good things they had to eat when they left home, and how much they were going to eat when they had the opportunity again. Earl Gritton. AWAY FROM HOME From the name, one might expect a trip to St. Mihuel fMichaelJ to' involve revolutions and hunger strikes, while in reality it means a peaceful little trip to the Azores. Q St. Mihuel looms up out of the sea like a monstrous rock and is so spotted with farms hedged in by vineyards that to a traveler approaching it, it would seem only an immense chess board. Let's go into the harbor to be greeted by the friendly natives and to look down into the deep, clear, blue water. Here comes a little sail boat alongside our warship. A little dark fellow, with a flowing mustache and wearing a strictly sea-goin' hat comes on board. We are in his charge now, to a certain extent, and if he chooses to do so he can send us to the bottom. He is friendly, however, and knowing the water and the sea bottom as he does, we are soon peacefully an- chored. Sunday morning it is, and there go the people to church. Some are dressed as though they were in mourning and some in very bright colors. Our rainbow has many colors, but they must have one all their own. Such a conglomeration of colors, carried out in every imaginable style, according to the nationality of the being wearing them. Should we investigate, we would find that during our stay, we have to deal with French, Spanish and Portuguese. We are just new arrivals and must go through every new 'arrival's task of viewing the wares of the natives, who come close to the boat with their wares. Should you buy anything, from a gay-colored apron to a pineapple, it would be hoisted up to you in a basket. Such bitter complaint we make about the high prices at home. ' lt is remarkable the way in which these natives of the Azores raise their prices to newcomers so quickly. This is not so in all instances, how- ever. Look at that fellow selling pineapples. He doesn't want twenty-tive or thirty cents for them, as we have been accustomed to paying. Just throw him a quarter and instead of one you will get three in return. The captain has given us permission to leave the ship. So get ready for inspection and we will go ashore. Be careful when you land that you do not step on the fingers of the fishermen, who are mending their nets. Ah! are we being met by a delegation from the city council? Look at them, 33 .W 1. 2 X Sis even little children stretching their hands out to us. Alas! they are only beggars and want our silver. It is something like running the gauntlet to get by those people, but we are free now so let's go up the main thoroughfare. Walking is hard on these cobble- stones, but the gay colors cheer us andwe are enjoying the pink, blue and yellow- tinted buildings that surround us. We could stand in the middle of the street and raise both arms and almost touch the shops on both sides. Associated Packing Companies have nothing on the natives when it comes to getting your money. The fellow that stopped our friends ahead of us wanted to exchange one of his large coins, not worth more than a cent, for a perfectly good quarter. Smile and pass on, however, and they won't stick with you. Four-thirty and we must be back on the ship at five, so let's get a move on. Everything we have seen has been very pleasing, but we are still glad that we are Americans. ' Look! A native has fallen out of his skiff, No, we are fooled againg it is only a diver. Some diver he is, too, and a very clever fellow. Someone from the ship has thrown a handful of pennies in the water and down goes this fellow after them. Back up again and he takes the pennies from his toes, mouth and hands. A very profitable business for him. - It is well that we are leaving the island, as winter is coming on and the annual rains have already started to make it miserable for us. But remember we are coming home to a land of sunshine and education, and may it ever be so. Randolph Ruhley, '21. HOMEWARD BOUND . Undoubtedly the most pleasant, and at' the same time the most interesting ex- perience that I had while in the navy was the visit I had in Lisbon, Portugal. It was about a year ago this November that I was there. The Mine Sweeping Detachment, to which I was attached, had finished sweeping the North Sea of mines, and we were on our way home after a year and a half in that region. It was necessary to take this round-about 1'oute because we had a sub chaser along, which needed to re-fuel frequently. V ' To a person who had been in any other place than the North Sea, where Scotch mists and heavy seas prevail, perhaps the experience of visiting such a place would not have been so pleasant. To me, and to the whole crew, for that matter, this was what we had been anticipating for months. We had been sailing upon a wind-swept sea, and we had been going ashore upon a wind-swept rocky landg now as We saw the calm blue water of the bay, set off by the red-rooted houses that stood at the water's edge, and the vine-colored hills all about, we were filled with that sense of satisfaction which one has seldom the pleasure to ex- perience. The people, the houses, the delightful dinners which we found ashore were just such as we had always read and dreamed about when we were young. Thoughts of the dinners, however, had occupied our minds at a much more recent time. What did we care for the exorbitant prices? These were things which We had not had for many months, and besides, had we not saved our money for just such an opportunity? We did not stay long in Lisbon, and perhaps it was best, as far as I was con- cerned, that I stayed no longer at the risk of spoiling the good impression that I carried away with me. Edwin McDonald, '21. 34 2 i icc REMINISCENCES OF GRANDPA Away, way back as far as I can remember, I recall the frequent visits of Grandpa. , I can remember sitting in the hammock with my sisters, watching for Fred and Fanny to come over the hill. Fred and Fanny were, at that time, the two most important horses on earth. It is true that a famous race track had never been graced by their presence, but they did bring Grandpa, and Grandpa was im- portant, not only because he was Grandpa, but because his arrival meant choco- late candy, a sweetmeat dear to the hearts of children. Perhaps, if Mother consented, one of us might go home with him to spend the week-end. This was a privilege not to be lightly looked upon, for Grandpa, who was ever our comrade and playmate, was sure to bake some potatoes for us. You may think that baking potatoes is a queer sort of amusement, but I always enjoyed doing it. First, with the assistance of Grandpa, I would rake some hot ashes out of the stove. Then I would bury the potatoes in the ashes. Every few seconds, I would lake a fork and punch them to see if they were getting done, which is probably one reason why they were never thoroughly baked. When the potatoes were about half done, I generally insisted on raking them out. Grandpa would humor me, al- though Isuspect he didn't greatly enjoy helping me to eat the object of my culinary skill. As I sit here dreaming of the past, my thoughts turn toward Christmas, which brings me another pleasant memory of Grandpa. One wintry day, not long before Christmas, my sisters and I were peacefully playing dolls, when we heard carriage wheels in the yard. Immediately we knew Grandpa had come. Out we rushed, never stopping to wonder at the unexpected visit. A I can just see the expression on my Grandfather's face as he drove up toward the house. I' can see the twinkle in his eyes, and the broad smile on his face, but who wouldn't smile if he saw three small children tumble pell-mell out of the house and race over the snow to meet him. Grandpa was very inquisitive that day, and asked one question after another concerning Christmas. He asked questions about dolls, doll beds, little rocking chairs, and many other things which are supposed to repose in Santa Claus's pack until Christmas Eve. Grandpa prepared to leave earlier than usual that day. With a last caution about Santa Claus and good little girls, he left, but instead of going home by the usual road, he drove away toward town. We girls stood in the window and watched him, with hurt amazement, for we were not accustomed to having him leave us to go to town. However, Mother attracted our attention away from the window, and we soon forgot Grandpa's mysterious manner. The next few days passed with the usual pre-Christmas excitement. As usual, too, we girls were not slow in getting up on Christmas morning. We rushed breathlessly downstairs, and there in the front room sat three little chairs, two little brown ones, and one little red one, the explanation of Grandpa's mysterious trip to town. GOOD-BY-HELLO Since another year has lately begun, I am beginning to look around to discover some New Year's resolutions to make fand breakl. I suppose I will, as usual, say good-by to some habits, and hello to others and the first one I think will be that if I do any writing in the coming year, I will do it in my own style. I will 35 e A I not be in school again for some while, so there will be no teachers to please or displease. Just to start this resolution off well, I think I will begin with this theme, to carry it out. When I was somewhat younger, since I had no brothers or sisters, my parents decided to do something about getting a suitable companion for me to play and talk with. They inquired at several of the Children's Homes, but they could find no one whom they would adopt into our home. After a great deal of looking around, they finally decided to get me a parrot as the next best substitute for hu- manity. I was delighted with the decision because there were a great many children in the neighborhood with whom I could play, but no one for miles around possessed a parrot. I was informed that all parrots were named Poll, and that they should be taught as soon as possible to say, "Polly Wants a cracker." I, therefore, set to work to teach my pupil his lesson. He was very apt for the first day or so, and I soon had him trained to speak his little piece whenever I asked, "Polly hungry?" About a week later, when I called my parents in to see what progress I was making, I first learned of Po1l's failing. The bird had been left in my room ever since his arrivalg so this was his first introduction to the rest of the family. My father was a tall, dark, bushy-haired man, and very near-sighted, he wore large shell-rimmed spectacles. To those who did not know him very well, I sup- pose he was not a very handsome person, though I never thought much about his appearance. When mother and he had placed theirselves near Poll's cage, I stepped up and said, "Polly hungry?" To my surprise, my pet did not reply with his usual quickness, but sat there gazing at my father with his large green eyes. Thinking he might not have heard me, I repeated the question, and he responded immediately, but with an unexpected answer: 2'Demmit, can them specs!" This was fairly shrieked, and my parents fled from the room with Poll still' cursing those spectacles. When I iinally descended to the library, 1ny father got up from his chair and announced that he was going to thrash me for teaching that bird such ungentle- manly manners. I made haste to convince him that I had nothing to do with Poll's knowledge of swear Words, and he finally decided not to punish meg but Poll, he said, would be sold immediately. This was an awful blow to me, for I had grown fond of my playmate, and I did not blame Poll a bit, for he had evi- dently learned his rude speech from his former master. I went to my mother, and after I had cried a bit I asked her to let me keep him. She was not very willing at first, but she said she would talk it over with my father that evening. The next morning, I arose rather early to hear the verdict. Happy me! They had decided that I could keep Poll on one condition: I was to teach him good speech and make him forget entirely his swear words and if he did not use any of his bad language by January first, I could keep him. I never worked harder at anything in my life than I did at teaching Poll to be refined. I explained every- thing to him, and told him he must either change his language or leave me forever. I decided that, since the date for his care must be on January first, he might make a New Year's resolution just the same as people dog I suggested the idea to Poll and in the meantime taught him several short prayers which I got from my Sunday School papers. I even read to him from Shakespeare and the Bible, in the hope that he would pattern his 'language after them. When New Year's Day came, Poll was the most model parrot that ever lived. When father came into the room, he would always cry out, "All hail to MacBeth." 36 . TQ . Zifiie He could even pray with considerable skill, and he knew the Ten Commandments by heart, so father decided to let me keep him. Although this New Year's resolution was not my own, it stands out in my mind as the most prominent in my history, and it is easily the most remarkable, for it is the only one which has never, to my knowledge, been broken. Poll never uttered any but quite classical words in the presence of any person until the time of his death, about ten years later, and I hardly believe that he was smart enough to relieve his feelings with strong words in private. His last words were, "Aw, yes-Heck-be polite." JOHNS VOCATION Below is the sad story of a "soft snap" seeking boy, But first here is the moral: If you want to know true joy Don't listen to your comrades when they tell you what to take, But choose your studies wisely, for your vocation's sake. - THE STORY The day of graduation was drawing very near. Said John's first hour teacher, "Have you chosen a career?" With honest pride our John replied, "A doctor will I be." "VVhat? A doctor without Latin, and without Chemistry?" Poor John's face fell, "I didn't know I needed them," said he. "A friend of mine who took them both warned me to let them be. He said they were a little hard, that Latin, it was dead. And so I took a year of Carpentry insteadf, The teacher sadly did reply, HA doctor you can't be, Because you haven't Latin, nor have you Chemistry." "Well, then," spoke John, "I'd like to be a Civil Engineer. I don't need Latin to be that, so I have naught to fear." "Of course you don't need Latin, to that I will agree. But have you taken Algebra, and Plane Geometry?" "I've had one year of Algebra but no Geometry. A boy I know who 'flunked' it said it was too hard for me. rr 'Tm sorry, John, you cannot be a Civil Engineer. That's twice your kind, advising friends have ruined your career, There's nothing else for you to do because you cannot go To college without Latin, Math, and Science, too, you know." It is my painful duty, now, to tell you what John does. He wheels around a broom and cart and sweeps the streets for us. And so, my friends, .Iohn's story told, the moral I'll repeat, Your studies always wisely choose or else John's fate you'll meet. 37 bat' D in 4 QUILLIAM SAYS , '- HARLES 'SHINKEWITZ almost succeeded in combing his hair the other day.

VVe were blessed that day with one of those rare, almost unheard of specimens-an assembly. We expected nothing less than a tiger fight to arouse our enthusiasm, but again we were treated with something unusual. One of those old Greek philosophers discovered that music could stir men to fight just as easily as it could put them to sleep, so Mr. Burton put to Work some of that ancient phil- osophy and introduced us to a "braw laddiet' and a Hbonnie 1assie" from Scotland, Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy, But we weren't fooled a bit by the lassie's pretty make-up because we distinctly remember when Mrs. Kennedy was starring in our amateur plays, then known as Miss Iva Love. But even though we did recognize them, the pair set to work with a will to instill some of the Scottish fight into our blood by singing the old Scotch songs. Did they put on a good entertainment? Did they arouse us? Just dig down in the records of the past and see what the score was the next day and you can judge for yourself whether or not they were a success. Of course, the day would not have been complete if the team had not appeared on the platform, so the warriers marched up, XVe could see that the poor fellows were scared half to death, for their knees were trembling, We could not imagine what had come over the boys who were usually so fearless, but the mystery was soon cleared up when Mr, Moyer explained that it was customary for the members of the team to make speeches just before the East-North game. We were just getting ready to hear some fine orations, but the coach also got a touch of that fear when he started to decide who should talk, twe noticed that Dick W. was glaring savagely at himj and announced that the speeches would be postponed until after the game. REWARD "Toil and thou shalt be rewarded." No one knows that better than our football team, for on Dec. 10th they received their rewards. Our ambitious orchestra, led by Mr. Baker, enlivened the occasion with several good numbers, Mr, Warren took Mr. Burton's usual task of making announcements. Mr. Moyer, however, had the honor of presenting the monograms. He took the Platform amid great applause. He was very dignified for a short time while he was telling us of the purpose and meaning of the monogram, but when he began to pass out the letters, he just couldn't refrain from telling little stories about the lucky fellows. Our new captain, Arvid Mellin, promises to be a great success, for he managed to give a real speech when he was called on. The customary length of captains' talks, I have discovered, is four sentences, but as I said, Arvid is going to be a star, both on and off the field. Bus Tew is the envy of all the small boys in town. A four-ring monogram is not given away every year, but Bus earned it. Even the coach says, t'That blanket is some grand sight." Here's congratulations to our last year's team and good backing for our next one. ' CHRISTMAS AGAIN The long weary school hours of the day just before Christmas vacation were dragging on into the seventh period and everything seemed so dull, when-sud- denly, and far away, sounded sweet strains of Christmas carols. Gradually they drew nearer, swelling finally into a great burst of song, as through the halls marched the vested carolers. The last familiar air had hardly died away when 40 e A if , the assembly bell rang. The assembly room seemed rather dark and quiet and the great velvet curtains seemed to add even a more solemn air to the room. Mr. Bur- ton came to the platform, made a few announcements and retired. Slowly and without warning the great curtains parted and there -in all its magnificent beauty stood a large Christmas tree beautifully lighted and decorated. High up on the wall hung a glorious radiant golden star. We were given a few minutes to behold the lovely picture. Gwyda Autrey began the program, singing 'tO Holy Night." The beautiful sad story of "The Other W'ise Man" was then told. Alixa Park telling of the Hall of Dreams, Olive Safely of the purpose for which Arteman set out to follow the star, Amy Scott told of his Hrst obstacle and sacrificeg Alice Miller of the second sacrifice made to help someone in needg Verna Hartman of the fruitless search for so many years. Maurine Sandahl finished the story, telling of his third and last sacrifice, his death and at the end seeing the King for whom he had sought for thirty-three years. Between each part an appropriate carol was sung by invisible songsters. After the story was told and the last carol sung the curtains were drawn, For a few moments those in the assembly room sat quietly. It was not an impression to discard abruptly. THE FALL PLAYS Our Girls' Dramatic Club has done at least one big job this year. Do you re- member the three short plays which were given Oct. 18 and 19 to help pay for our new stage equipment? In this show a large group of ambitious actors were able to show their wares. Miss Corey chose as her student assistants, Frances McKee, Florence Peterson and Grace Keister. The members of the club took charge of the tickets and sold about 2,500 for the two nights. The first play, "An Economical Boomerang," forced even the most serious minded to spend the twenty minutes of its production in laughter. An economical husband decided that his wife ought to make her own dresses. She in turn said that he must be her "dummy" and allowed her to drape the dress on him. When he was securely pinned up his wife departed for more pins, company arrived and pronounced him crazy. There was much fun before the poor husband finally es- tablished his sanity to the satisfaction of all. The part of the abused husband was taken by Charles Wiley. Other characters were Amy Scott, Ellen Shope, Ran- dolph Ruhley, Fridolf Hanson and Olive Safely. A two-act play, "The Cool Collegiansj' was the second production staged. It was an exceptionally clever college play and dealt with the experience of two college men who change identities. Many amusing complications ensued before the straightening out of the tangle in the last act. The characters were Charles Shink- ewitz, LaVerne Greenlee, Claire Yohe, Virginia Buck, Lurene Stevenson, Margery Packer and Laurene Smith. Last on the program was the famous Moliere's "A Doctor in Spite of Him- self," a classic which has survived for more than 200 years. The scene was laid in France during the seventeenth century and the story was a clever satire on the medical profession at that time. The students who took part 'in this production were Ralph Jester fthe doctorl, Margaret Phillips, Paul Patterson, Clarence Ridgway, John Rossi, Roger Tornell, Ruth Weston, Helen Keough and Gaylord Case. These plays not only earned a nice sum of money to apply on our debt, but they also trained a goodly number of students who will now be able to give a fine ex- hibition in the plays later in the year. 41 I Z,- . This is the story of an interview that , - was not, and how "Ding" helped me out. You q E- 5 remember a few weeks ago when Bruce AN K Bairnsfather, the English cartoonist Who I became so famous during the war, gave a . lecture here in Des Moines? Some of you probably heard him, if you did' not, you , I missed something good. It was from his . cartoons that the popular English play, "The Better 'Ole," with 'tO1e Bill" as the H4 EES MOINES 4 hero, was written. A ,ggauugg On the day of his lecture, I hopefully journeyed forth, notebook in hand, to get I an interview with Captain Bairnsfather. But MLLQ , many are the lions that beset the path to a celebrity. I got no nearer Bairnsfather than the outside of his door. I was told that he needed quiet, and was Very tired after his trip. I was not the only disappointed one, though. You should have seen the mob waiting to shake hands with him, or get his autograph. My, I'm glad I'm not famous! There was nothing else to do, so I cheered up, bought a balcony ticket, and anxiously awaited the lecture. Bairnsfather was introduced by our own Mr. Darling, or perhaps he'll let us call him "Ding" Captain Bairnsfather is rather tall and slender and looks quite young, about twenty-eight or thirty, I should say. I know he is older, however, because he was that age before the war. He gave his lecture with a most fascinat- ing accent, tacking on r's everywhere they shouldn't be, and leaving them off everywhere they should be. Before the War, Bairnsfather was working in a dingy little studio in London, making posters for billboards, pretty girl-heads, and advertisements for patent medicines. He had an ambition to become a great artist, but, as he says, even an artist must live. Then the war came. The very day it was declared, Bairns- father enlisted, which he says is no credit to him, as he regretted it the next day. He is a graduate of a military school, so it was not long until he was given a com- mission and sent to the front. He was in a new sphere over there, slopping around in the mud and rain. It was pretty disagreeable business. But Bairns- father saw the funny side of these miseries, so he employed his talents in amus- ing his companions. All along the front the dugouts were full of his sketches. They were in the trenches, in the rest station, everywhere that the soldiers were. Some even found their way to England and were published in the papers there. Bairnsfather became famous over night, as it were, and for six months he didn't know a thing about it, Then he was wounded, When he arrived at the hospital he literally fell into a bed of roses. People sent him flowers, parades were given in his honor, and generals came to see him. After his recovery he served until the end 42 Q1"2 ' ii sto Xl of the war as an official entertainer for the Allied armies. He was with the Ameri- can forces for a while, and has made some of his best cartoons for them. He ad- mires the American soldier very much. Bairnsfather concluded his lecture by drawing some cartoons for us. 1 As I walked homeward from the lecture, I held in my hand the picture of two great cartoonists, Darling and Bairnsfather, as I had seen them that day upon the platform. Wouldn't it be interesting to know their opinions of one another? Yes, it would, but I wouldn't try to see Bairnsfather again. "A word to the wise," you know. But maybe "Ding" would be willing to talk to me. There was only one way to find out, so to "Ding's" office I went, with faint hopes and quaking knees. You see, I had never met "Ding" and did not know how nice he is. I was afraid he would be real stingy with his time. Busy men have a right to be, you know. My fears were all wasted. He was perfectly wonderful. He understood just what I wanted, and seemed to enjoy telling it to me. Once, while I was rapidly scratch- ing down my notes, he stopped and asked if he was talking too fast for me. What do you think of that from a busy man? "Ding" believes that if all the people who spend most of their time hating England knew the English as he knows Bairnsfather, they would have a pretty hard time picking a quarrel with England. Bairnsfather is a typical Englishman. At Hrst, "Ding" says he thought Bairnsfather was 'different from Americans, but after talking with him awhile he saw that underneath the exterior of manner and speech, Bairnsfathe-r's ideals, hopes, and aspirations, his humor, and what he likes and doesn't like, are no different from our best American ideals. Fortu- nately for the world, Bairnsfather has not been changed by his success. He en- joys his work and gets as much fun out of his pictures as anyone else. The first thing he did with the money he received from the cartoons was to buy a beautiful home for his mother and father in Stratford-on-Avon. This act is typical of him, a quiet unassuming man of unquestionable merit. He is rather shy and afraid of women. It is unusual that he is not spoiled, for he has had more than enough to spoil anyone, but he has no conceit. UDing" says that if Bairnsfather never does another thing in his life, that he did more during the war, with his construc- tive humor, than any other man. He served the world and the world has re- warded him, though he will never be rich, for he uses his money to make other people happy. Moral, according to "Ding": Nobody knew that Bairnsfather could do it, and he didn't know it himself until he tried. The reason we stay in an attic doing inconsequential things is because we don't venture out and try to do the things we'd like to do, but are afraid we can't. ' HI THERE-LOOKEYI If that fellow who was looking around to find the most polite person in town for one of the daily papers, should happen to see me, I would get the booby prize. He got me into an awful fix because his articles suggested a "bright idea" to one of the Quill workers and, of course, I was picked to be the "goat" She said, "Now you just look around the school and find out which of the studies on our curriculum seem to be especially worth while right now, and then you can write up some- thing to bring out their merits? I started out, therefore, to find some teacher who could convince me that her subject was really necessary for an educated man. The other day I happened to be passing Miss Padmore's roomg since she used to be a teacher of mine, I stopped in to chat a little. Of course, our talk soon ran into the subject of Latin, Miss Padmore was saying that the students of today seem to be afraid to take Latin 43 TQQ 'c because it has the reputation of being terribly hard. As students do not realize its use, they take some "practical" subject. I remarked that it was probably true, but she came back at me and said: "There is no more practical subject to be found than Latin." I nearly laughed at her and asked what good a dead language would do a common person like me. I told her that I used good Anglo-Saxon. Then she told me that she had recently read an article which said "Avoid Latin derivatives. Use terse, pure, simple Saxon." She asked me how many Saxon words I supposed there were in those two sentences and since I didn't know, she told me. There was only one, "Saxon,,' and all the rest were Latin. "Hem-in," I remarked under my breath, and then she started to talk in earnest. "Now you are planning to be a lawyer, aren't you?" she said. "Well, do you know that three-fourths of the terms you will use in your practice are Latin? If you were going to study medicine, you would even write your prescriptions and study your cases in Latin. If you ever plan to do any worth-while writing, you will have to be a master of Latin, for that language holds the meat of the world's thoughts. And yet if you are going to do nothing in particular, you should know Latin thoroughly in order to be able to talk freely and correctly, for you know that over half the English language is taken directly from the Latin, and there is hardly a word that isn't indirectly connected with our old stand-by." I thanked Miss Padmore for her kind interpretation of her subject, and left her room convinced that Latin should be placed on the honor roll of studies. About a week after I had been talking with Miss Padmore, I had to stay in after school to make up some trigonometry I had missed that morning. I was working at the blackboard, not doing very well, when Miss Balliet dropped in to talk with Miss St. John. They were discussing a graduate of our school who had gone to Ames and iiunked because he had taken only one semester of algebra in high school, while I kept my eyes on my work and my ears on them, Suddenly I had a. brilliant idea. I erased my work fl never did finish ith and went over to talk with them, determined to show them that I was not being helped any by the study of mathematics. We talked a little while and I began to get the worst of the arguinent, for they asked me what other subject offered in the curriculum of any High School cultivates the powers of imagination, logical thinking and concentra- tion, to such a high degree as does the study of mathematics, or gives as great a training in perseverance and accuracy. I tried to think of some such study, but I couldn'-tg so I tried to back out, but they had decided not to let me escape uncon- verted. They argued thus: "The study of mathematics should appeal to any ambi- tious boy or girl regardless of the direction which his ambition may take. To the one Whose interest is purely that of a student, it should be of great signifi- cance that the World's most noted philosophers, Plato, Pythagoras, Descartes, Leibnitz, Spinoza, Kant, and many others, placed great stress upon the value of the study of mathematics." To the student whose ambition is along scientific' or industrial lines, they quoted from an article by William Betz in a recent periodical: t'Mathematics is the basis of practically our entire material civilization. Without it we should re- turn to primitive conditions. To an extent which it is impossible to exaggerate, our entire business life, including manufacturing and transportation, our engi- neering enterprises, architecture, sciences such as physics, chemistry, economics, astronomy, statistics, and even psychology, are absolutely dependent on the ideas and processes of mathematics." Well, I couldn't say anything against any of those arguments, so I gracefully excused myself and feeling very foolish indeed, I Went away thanking my lucky stars that I had taken mathematics in High School. 44 Q1'Q WI-IAT'S DOING AMONG THE SEN IORS . Which Senior Class is the liveliest East High has produced? Why the Mid- Year Class of '21, of course. Our Senior Meetings have been exciting to say the least and they have certainly been amusing. What troubles and tangles and heavy discussions! Should we or should we not have the weiner roast at Four Mile Creek? After hours of hot argument this matter of life and death was finally settled, but alas! alack! we had planned the Weiner roast for the same night as the Dramatic Club plays. WVhat long faces and sighs of disappointment prevailed! But Miss McBride, as usual, came to the rescue by suggesting a picnic in the gym with a "Theater party" to the play afterward. Just the thing! The usually jolly Seniors were themselves again. With so many motions concerning parties, pictures and pins, our efiicient leader sometimes gets things mixed. Heard in Senior Meeting: HI move that the girls wear aprons and the boys overalls to the party." Our esteemed president: , f'lt has been moved and seconded that the girls wear overalls and the boys wear aprons." And he gazed at us wonderingly when we laughed! Who could forget that dreary, drizzly morning we braved the storm to get our "pitchers took"? Time-10 A. M., November 26, 1920. i Setting-Webste-r's Studio. Characters-The absent-minded Mr. Websterg blond and bored office girly in- dignant Seniors. Conversation-We all know itfchieily argumentative. Climax-355.00 per dozen. The Seniors came up smiling. Their pictures were taken and another mile- stone had been passed on the rocky road to graduation. Senior Parties! YVhat words! What joys! What anticipation! Didrft those jolly little Freshmen have a good time at the Senior-Freshman Party? "The Senior-Freshman party is more fun that all the rest, For that is when the Seniors see the Freshmen at their best. The Freshmen staged some contests that were wonderful to see, And how they ever went so fast is marvelous to me. They showed originality and speed and bravery, till, VVe think they'll make a splendid Senior Class some day. Don't you?'! First was the formal program, consisting of a talk by the president, readings by Olive Safely and Ruth Weston, and a violin solo by Marion Hawk. Then came the fun. The Peanut Race, the Folding Chair Race and the Milk and Cracker Contest were extremely amusing. The Seniors laughed and applauded, played and cheered, quite forgetting their sedateness. Finally came the grand march and candy and apples. Was the party a success? Just ask the Freshmen. The next event in our whirl of social activities was the Hallowe'en Party at Ellen Shope's. Our appearance in overalls and aprons helped to start things going, and what with bobbing for apples, dancing the Virginia Reel and having our fortunes told, we had a lively time. "On Hallowe'en the Senior Class surely had some fun, In overalls and aprons, they frollicked, every one. They all forgot their dignity and O! the pranks they played, In bobbing after apples till they nearly had to Wade And they were not alone in what they didfl wish to tell The teachers and the principal took part in them as well." CContinued on Page 51.3 45 rj . , Or amgatloll T1 R1 A . ,f.f A I T THE JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The Junior Chamber of Commerce continued its activity since the last writing with most promising results. Meeting as representatives of the youth of Des Moines, rather than as representatives merely of one school, and held together by the bond of a common desire for a better knowledge of what lies before us to accomplish, we have been privileged to attend some very beneficial meetings. Space will not allow mention of the trips which each bureau, through the courtesy of the business men of the city, have taken through the various firms of the city. We must be content to say that the benefit we have derived has repaid us many fold for the slight effort we have put forth in attending. Something must be said, however, of the general meetings, two in number, and the reception given by the Senior Chamber. During the campaign for fire and accident prevention that was recently l1eld, we listened to talks by Cap- tain Hubbard, of the police force, Mr. A. B. Pray, fire marshal, and Mr. Stedman, superintendent of electrical wiring. Just before the Christmas vacation, Dr. Holmes, of Drake University, who always carries a message, addressed us, On January 6th, last, the Senior Chamber tendered us a reception in the Cham- ber of Commerce library, following which refreshments were served in the cafe- teria. Mr. Alexander Fitzhugh, president of the Senior Chamberg Mr. Ralph Faxon, secretary, and Mr. VValter Arant, spoke. VVith feeling of happiness that the Senior Chamber could take such an interest in us, we left the meeting. It is the firm belief of all the members that the Junior Chamber of Commerce is accomplishing a most valuable task, and we look forward to our future meetings with pleased anticipation. E EPI TAN If there is any truth in the old saying that, "Curiosity once killed a cat," it is a safe bet that the feline enrollment of East High has decreased considerably since the announcement of the E Epi Tan first appeared. However, with a view toward averting further casualties, we wish to explain that the E Epi Tan is an organized debating club, and not a new political party or a branch of the Soviets. The ofiicers are: President, Ralph Stutsmang vice president, Clyde Norris, secretary, Russell Jones, treasurer, Ransom Ringrose, sergeant-at-arms, Lester Hayes. W'ith these young men at the helm, the society hopes to realize the pur- poses laid down in its constitution, and to make its influence for the better felt throughout the school and community. The debates given on questions of the day, the parliamentary drill gained in the meetings, the serious talks made to the fellows by one of their members, and the humor injected into each meeting, all go to develop the best there is in each member, and to train him for the big things ahead. The membership is drawn from the progressive boys of East High-those who are interested and who have a desire for greater things, yet the society always welcomes the opportunity to give someone a boost who otherwise might slip from the ranks. Thus since the E Epi Tan Society has been organized for the good of everyone in East High, we feel justified in asking the support of the student body. VVe hope to survive the trying period of youth and to go on making a record of which East High may well be proud. 46 LATIN CLUB The Latin Club meets every other week, And then we hear our Ciceros speak. Sometimes a beautiful song they sing, Then sweet music through the halls does ring. Sometimes they learn how Rome was "run," But even then they have lots of fun. Now if any of this sounds good to you, Y Come in and see the things we do. Madalynn Philleo, '22. THE GIRLS' DRAMATIC CLUB "Listen, my children, and you shall hear" of the Girls' Dramatic Club. What a busy year, with the study of the Development of the Drama and of Shakespeare's "As You Like lt," from which we have already given several acts. At our next meeting we are to learn the art of "make up," Miss Corey demon- strating with one of our fair members. Oh, no, you can't come, as this meeting is for "Dramatic Girls" only. In the last Quill you remember we spoke of a contest with the Forensic Club, for procuring Quill subscriptions? Well, we won the contest, but-how about it, boys? X Sh! Let me just whisper something to you-we have a new method of pre- senting entertainments whereby each girl will have an opportunity to show her initiative in providing a fifteen or twenty-minute entertainment for the club. She will be responsible for the entire program. Of course, we are expecting many enjoyable programs, and we are eagerly looking forward to the first entertainment, which will be given by Ruth Weston. On January 14th, the club will give its first 1921 party, with the Forensic Club as guests. We are expecting to have a glorious time-but you will hear about it in the next Quill. Frances Fraley, '21, STUDENT COUNCIL The various committees of the Student Council have been at work during the last six weeks and have altered and improved several things concerning East High school life. For instance, in accordance with the new Social Hour plans the programs will be Varied, offering "stunt" day one Week, a dance the next, and ath- letic program the next, etc. The athletic committee met with the physical directors and later presented a request to the Council for an allowance of S500 for equipment in the gymnasium, and S500 to be used in improving the East High track. The Council granted the amounts. This committee has also designed a new monogram stencil which will be cut in copper and kept as the permanent design to be used hereafter. Arrangements are also being made to assemfble all the trophies East High owns into one case, and to place this where visitors will have access to it, The Council will be glad for any suggestions from teachers or pupils and will endeavor to act on them for the betterment of the school. Ruth Spry, '21, THE FORENSIC CLUB After a long and diiiicult struggle, the Forensic Club has finally secured a faculty adviser, Mr. C. M. Jones, one of the commercial teachers, is now helping us plan our programs and other activities. A The first social gathering of this semester, a dance, was held December 10th on 47 the third iioor of the school. About sixty couples were present, including the chap- erons, Mr. and Mrs. Moyer and Mr. and Mrs. Warren. Everyone from chaperons to the newest members of the club enjoyed the dance, the success of which was due for the most part to our social committee, Ran- dolph Ruhley, Charles Wiley, Albert Sterzing and Edwin McDonald. h O' John Bloem, Sec. '22 THE BAND , The band has made splendid progress this year under the eflicient direction of Mr. Baker. The loss of five players who graduated last June was a great handi- cap at the first of the year, but the fellows filled in the gap in splendid manner. Their technique has greatly improved and they can now play successfully much standard music. They have mastered more new music than any former East High band and though they have had no opportunity to play for an assembly are perfectly capable of rendering some splendid music. The pep and zeal put into music at the football games won the approval of everyone. In all probability a series of concerts will be given in the spring, on the high school campus. VVe be- lieve we are safe in stating that East High's band is unsurpassed by any amateur band in the west. Paul W. Ransom, '21. ORCHESTRA The High School Orchestra has become an institution now, in fact as in name. It owes most of its success to the director, Mr. Baker, who has done his best to convert discord into harmony, and has succeeded, it is hoped, to a great degree. Though new to us this year, Mr. Baker has made himself an essential part of our activities. In all, the organization numbers about twenty-five members, and Mr. Baker asserts that if they work in the future as they have worked in the past, they will soon startle the world fEast High at leastb. Groups are selected to play for spe- cial occasions, such as the social hour, class parties, etc. They have frequently played for us in the cafeteria, and the "music while you eat plan" has met with the general approval of the students. The class of music played as a whole has been quite unusual, though everything has been attempted from the classic to the jazz. The first public appearance of the Orchestra was on Armistice Day. Since then it has played for most of the school activities, such as Dramatic Club plays and assemblies. Marguerite Kizer, '20, THE PHILOMATI-IEAN SOCIETY Q The January issue of the Quill marks the first birthday of the Philomathean Society, but in spite of its short existence the society has accomplished many things. As it grew in strength, it grew in helpfulness, and it is now one of the efiicient organizations of the school. O The meetings this year have been both entertaining and profitable. Musical numbers, readings, current events and debates constitute the programs. At Christmas the old members entertained the new girls with a special program, after which they played games and enjoyed a "cozy hourf' Delicious chocolate and wafers were served, and the Christmas season was suggested by the sprigs of holly and pretty candles which decorated the tables. The Philos plan to have many such programs and parties, believing that these 48 affairs will afford the girls an opportunity to become acquainted, make the new girls feel that they are really a part of the society, and inspire all with a deter- mination to make the Philos the "biggest and best" organization in East High.

True, the club's all and more than its name applies, for this friendship and good will has spread outside of the club, and each girl tries to help her neighbor. The joyous anticipations of Thanksgiving were tempered by thoughts of those whose Thanksgiving Day perhaps would be cheerless. VVhat did the girls do? Enthusiastically they set to work and fixed a basket for a needy family, reaping their reward in the happy knowledge that "it is more blessed to give than to re- ceive." Remembering the joy and appreciation these people had shown, they planned to give them a "Merry Christmas." A basket of food was prepared, and one evening shortly before Christmas the girls assembled in the music room-to sew, patch and darn clothing which was to be sent along with the dinner. At this same meeting while the needles flew, Miss Bitzner explained a pageant which is to be given by the HY" girls in the Coliseum, January 21. This pageant was written by Miss Bitzner and reveals the merits of the "blue triangle." More than one thousand girls will take part in it, and among them you will find many East High Y. W. members. At 'tcabinetu meetings so much is discussed that you would tire reading of it, but-take my word for it-there are great plans afoot. Recently we had an initiation, receiving into our midst a number of new mem- bers. It is still not too late for YOU to join. Open your eyes and look about you. You will always recognize the Y. W. girls, for "by their good deeds, ye shall know them." Charlotte Luka, '22. 49 Fltbletios BASKETBALL With the passing of football, our minds will now turn to basketball. East High School will have eight teams in the inter-city tournament, and twelve teams in the school tournament. The participants will be placed on the teams according to their weight. The teams for the inter-city tournament will be designated as follows: A and B, heavyweightsg C and F, lightweightsg G and H, middle light- weights. The weights for teams A and B are from 145 pounds upg for teams C and D, 130 to 1449i0 poundsg for teams E and F, 120 to 129250 pounds, and for teams G and H, 120 pounds and lower. Sports of all kinds have been very popular in the last twelve months and so far there is no indication of a let-up. With a number of veterans and a great deal of new material trying for the teams, East High has excellent chances for the city championship, The schedule shows that East High fans are assured of some good fast games in the gymnasium this winter. MONOGRAM AWARDS At a special assembly arranged for the football boys, the school showed its appreciation to the heroes of the gridiron by the award of football monograms for 1921. It is necessary for a man to play 15 quarters and 7 halves before he is eligible to receive a monogram. Mr. Moyer, acting for the school, gave the fol- lowing men one-ring monograms: Hall, Hill, Ginsberg, Bruce, Anderson, Edwards, Hartung, Larson, Liicht, Lingenfelter, Little, Mellin, Mitchell and Tillotson. VVal- lerstedt received a twoering monogram and Tew received one with four rings. CAPTAIN-ELECT FOR 1921 The members of the .football team met in Room 113 one afternoon, shortly after the end of the football season, to elect a new captain. The meeting was called to order by Coach Moyer who gave a short talk, which was very appropriate for the occasion. No one was willing to predict the probable outcome of the elec- tion as there were many good men with seemingly even chances. The second ballot gave the election to Arvid Mellin. All the fellows felt satisfied with the returns of the election. They promised to give Mellin the same loyal and hearty cooperation that they gave ex-Captain Wallerstedt. Let us get behind Captain Mellin and his men, and give them a big boost towards the championship of 1921. EAST HIGH ON ALL-CITY FOOTBALL TEAMS In the several mythical football teams selected to represent the best material in the city high schools, East High was awarded the largest number of men. The fact that our team won the City Championship and that they have a valid title to the State Championship-along with the perfect brand of football displayed throughout the season won for the following East High men, places on the All-City team: Mitchell, Kellogg, Mellin, Little, Tew, Ginsberg, Wallerstedt and Lingen- felter. The following men were placed on the honor roll: Edwards, Tillotson and Anderson. 50 e,..qe o is EASTWESTATNORTH For the third time in the history of Des Moines high school football the three rival teams surrounded the festal board to pay homage to culinary art. The occasion was the annual City Football banquet, and the ceremony was held at North High, on December 10th, in the school cafeteria. It must be amusing to an interested spectator to watch the members of the different teams find their places at the banquet table, and get acquainted with the guests on either side. The fellows' who have had an almost personal grudge against each other would find themselves, perhaps seated side by side. At first there was an awkward silence, and then under the soothing influence of creamed chicken, the ice was broken and friendly comments were passed back and forth. Soon the hearty laughs of healthy spirits filled the room and an evening of fun was on. The toastmaster was Superintendent Studebaker, who, although about the size of our Bus Tew, proved to be a 'fine speaker and presided masterfully over the program and toasts. The toasts were arranged in the tenses of a verb, and were presented as follows: Past .,,.......... ....... J unior Wood, North Captain Past Perfect ..... ................... M r. N. H. Weeks Present ........... ...Richard Wallerstedt, East Captain Present Perfect ..... ..,............... M r. F. A. Dubridge Future ...................................... Orma Smith, West Captain Future Perfect ......................................,.. Mr. H. M. White Substitutions: Arvid Mellin for Richard Wallerstedt. WHATS DOING AMONG THE SENIORS lContinued from Page 45.3 Our Picnic in the gym was a grand success. ' " 'Twas quite original indeed, the latest Senior whim One of their parties was a picnic supper in the gym, They had the nicest things to eat and plenty of them, too. They ate till they could eat no more and then, when they were through, The orchestra played for them and they danced a little while, And then departed, wearing a happy Senior smile." But our wonderful .Christmas Party "capped the climax." At the joyous time of Christmas every Senior seemed to be Just full of happy secrets that he kept from you and me, About the tree and presents and about the games they'd play. And they could hardly' wait until that most eventful day. But finally that day arrived and O! what fun they had! They played awhile and then arrived Saint Nick with loaded bag. Each person got a present which contained a merry rhyme Automobiles, story books and clocks that tell the time." Wasn't Santa Claus good to the Seniors? Roy Tillotson was certainly pleased with his drum, for now he can play his own accompaniment when he sings. I've heard that Mr. Burton is contemplating joining the orchestra with his marvelous iife, and Miss McBride's love of fine jewelry was finally satisfied, for she could hardly keep her eyes off her lovely green bracelet. Dick Wa1lerstedt's car Cmade exclusively by the Marion Automobile C-ompanyl is his most cherished possession. But that's not all.

D 54 , . A Bit 'wit Professor Gerald Glum, M.

MQ ' Does East High Need a Ford? Our esteemed President of the Stu- dent Council, always on the lookout for the needs of the school, is a great believer in spooks. The other morning he came to school with the tale that he had received a communication, by the ouija board route, from our late lamented Duroc Oms, to the effect that East High is badly in need of a Ford. Jay immediately commissioned me to look into the matter and find the truth conveyed by this message from our deceased detective. The first person I met after setting out on my mission was Miss Corey. When I spoke to her about a "flivver" she started harping on the subject as though it were her hobby. When I consider all the uses she was going to put that "Tin Lizzie" to, I surely pity the poor thing. It would have to carry scenery, transport costumes and do so many other things I have forgotten half of them. Miss Patterson, who then appeared on the scene, nearly fainted when she heard that at last some one had found out that a Ford was what we really need most. She informed me that she would be very much pleased if she no longer had to serve as a pack horse for the trail between the city library and our own, V But live finally come to the conclu- sion that it isn't a Ford we want, but a.n assembling plant, for behold the many parts we already have: We'll start with the crank, that's where a person generally starts a Ford anyway: Cranke-Politeness forbids the men- tioning of names.
