In a small town like Harding, everyone knew it in a few days. Friends greeted him more jovially than usual, and with a re- mark about Edythe that usually made Jim get suspiciously red around his ears. Ile used to sit at his window for hours in the evenings Cwhen he was not at Edythe'sD and dream about her. A pie- ture of her was propped up beside him, and he adored it. It didn 't matter to him that it was originally a part of a group picture in the town newspaper, and though the other faces were cut away, two organdie-clad elbows prodded Edythe painfully from either side, and the face of a venerable old gent was visible over her left shoulder. But no valuable portrait with a master 's signa- ture could be more prized. But tonight, tonight he was going to call on Edythe. And did he not drive a spirited young horse. and a shiny blaek buggy, rented from the village stable? And look, beside him on the seat there reposed a huge three-pound box of candy. adorned with blue tulle ribbons and clad in snowy tissue paper. On the way out he reviewed and ana- lyzed the brilliant and witty speeches he would nonchalantly deliver at the right moments. Surely a gay and frivolous girl,like Edythe would desire a young man that was peppy, and full of zest. All right, if that was the type she pre- ferred,-then that was the type he 'd be. Naturally being reticent and thoughtful, he should be more joeose. and lawgh more. to hold her attention. "Faint heart ne 'er won fair lady." That quotation had lately become one of his favorite mottoes, and at the party two weeks ago he had been able to talk a little more, laugh a little more than usualg and for the first. time, Edythe had noticed him. And with that little en- couragement he had, according to later testimonies, 'tshined right up to her." Now he was her f'steady." But was her interest not beginning to wane? Had he not fallen back into his old rut of listening instead of being listened to, of being a spectator instead of the one observed, of always being a looker on? Well, tonight was tonight. and he would make up for past dullness. And he did. At just the right moment he said the right thing, made just the right remark, gave just the right compli- ment- when presenting the candy, that made her turn and blush prettily. ln fact, he was quite loquaeious and gay and laughing. Possibly a little too much. And when he left, at 10:30, he knew that she had bee11 sorry to see him leave. even if her folks had not shared her sor- row quite so much. But all good things must have an end, or at least an intermission. The next day Jim received a telegram that his au11t was quite ill, and would he please come at once? But before he left, he met Edythe and explained his absence-to-be, and he promised: "I'l1 write to you every single day." P And she promised faithfully to answer every letter. All the day on the train he kept think- ing of Edythe. How he loved and adored her! But it was a bit tiresome 6 THE QUILI. to keep laughing and joking all the time. For the twenty-six years of his life he had been quiet, and it was a change. Then his thoughts turned to the trip. His au11t, being rich, would probably have several important doctors at her bedside, and he might get to talk with them, discuss late events in the medical and scientific world, and "swap" experi- ences. In a week his aunt had passed away, and Jim found himself to be the rather bewildered possessor of thirty-seven thousand dollars. Enough to marry, buy a home, and start a new practice in a tow11 larger than Harding. In three weeks he was able to leave for his home town. Be good to see the gang once more, ,and Edythe. He'd go out to her house soon after he arrived. But maybe it would be better to wire her that he was coming. As the train neared Harding, Jim was becoming excited. And when he saw the little brick depot, and the faded black and white sign of "Hardingl' swinging over a group of friends, a lump arose in his throat. The first person he looked for as he descended the few steps of the train was Edythe, and after ploughing through several dozen of the citizens, bent on congratulating him on his good fortune, he finally did see her. There she was, standing cool and slim in a fluttery green dress, and a tall serious youth stood beside her. Until now, Jim had never paid much attention to him, but now he realized painfully that the boy, tall and straight with brown eyes and wavy hair, was a very distinct personality. "Hello, Edythe. How are you? Say, you're looking fine," he greeted her enthusiastically. "Why, hello, Jim. I'm glad to see you. You surely remember David Lewis, don 't you? He 's an artist, spending his summer here, painting some of our scenery. We're engaged," she finished coolly. Somehow, he managed to stammer co11- gratulations and escape from the cruel scrutiny of the crowd. So that was why she hadn't answered his last letters, though he 'd only written a few in all. The next day, loitering on the hotel veranda, again the looker-on, the watch- er, the thinker, tl1e silent man of every gathering, he ventured to ask of one of his few close friends: "Jake, do you know why Edythe- well, you know what I mean. When I went away it was practically settled." "Waal, I heard that she said you was too much of a talker. She allus claimed she'd pick a quiet feller to spend her life with,. probably so she could boss him, and we shore thought she 'd done it when she got you, but she says you was too all-fired noisy. Course, none of us be- lieved that, knowing you 's allus too quiet an' thoughtful, and full o' poetry. Waal, only God understands wimmin, and I reckon they puzzle Him sometimes. So I dunno the real reason. Reckon you 'll be a leaving this burg S0011, with all that money?" he questioned wist- fully. "Yes, Jake. I guess I will. I've got to see some of those things that I've al- ways dreamed of, but I'll come back," he finished softly. MSO Bigv BY EDNA FERBER Could you find beauty in red cabbages on an Illinois farm?

And ven dey get hurt-dey come squalling to me. Dey hang by dere toenails and stand on dere head, And knock one another off top of the shed. Dey chop down my fruit trees and dull up mine ax- And lose all my tools and dey vaste all mine tacks. Dey fight and dey spat for a pan for to lick, And den I gets mad and I gets a big stick. I varm up dere pants. and den Oh! how dey dance! I sot dem down hard each one on a chair, And den dey yust say "Ha! Ha! We don 't care." And ven dere comes company, I get disgust, Dey eat and dey eat till I tank dey would bust. Dey lose all dere money and ask me for more, Till sometimes I tank I will shurely go poor. Dey tear up mine Ford and have a good latf- IVhen seeing me coming, dey run down the path. Ven we tank it over, it does not seem right To make dem be shut up yust quite so ver' tight. I shust vant to lick dem, but den dey get vorse, And ven I get mad, I tank I vill curse. But maybe dey may grow better as years roll on by Ooh! if dey don 't-I tank I vill die! Joy Out of the gray of God 's own skies, VVe hear the bells ring loud and clear The silvery moon beams played. 'Tis ringing for Christmas tide, And the shimmering snow The loud winds are calling, Shone with wondrous glow, The white snow is falling Now brightly, now to fade. Throughout this world so wide. We hear the patter of little feet, As they come to bring us cheer. As the rustic bells ring, All the gay children sing Merry Christmas, Happy New Year! -IIIIRIAM KIEFER. 8 THE QUILL The Perfidy of Woman OMEN a1'e vamps and men are fools. It has always been so, Ellld it will undoubtedly rema.in so until the crack of doom. I am not try- ing to introduce a reform or change the characters of men and women. I am merely presenting the facts as they have been forced upon me by experience- limited experience, to be sure-but none the less enlightening. There may be exceptions to this rule, as there are to most rules. Some women are not vamps, a few of them are sincere and honest. Likewise, a very, very small number of men may be immune to the artifices of women. Some 111611 play the part of vamps, and women the part of fools. There are some married women of my acquaintance who are absolutely honest, faithful and true, cheering, in- dustrious, friendly and companionable to their husbands. There are just enough of these ideal women in the world to delude the aver- age man into thinking that he may be lucky enough to marry one of them. They raise false hopes in our lives which are never wiped out until the honey- moon is over. We will not face the real facts until they are forced upon us by fate. IVe do not take heed from the mis- takes of our brothers. Blindly, we wan- der on, secure in the belief that unhap- piness in matrimonial affairs can never befall us, until we can no longer deny that such a tragedy has happened. The girls with whom I have had the pleasure UID of acquaintance, seem to delight in few things so much as getting a young man to spend all the money pos- sible on them Knot that I ever had much to spendj and then leaving him with nothing but some very confused ideas concerning women in general, with which to console himself. The height of a young lady 's ambition seems to consist of being able to boast of having broken an important date with some popular boy friend, after it was too late for him to get another, preferably by the simple process of not being at home when he called. Girls make capital of the roman- tic ideas which come so naturally to young men, they use these tender pas- sions for the purpose of embarrassing and confusing their admirers. Girls such as Maggie of "The Mill on the Floss," and Phoebe of "The House of the Seven Gables, " I have never found to exist in reality. Instead of being romantic and lovable, young Women are scornful and traitorous. They have no respect for the more serious moods in their gentleman companions. They are willing to betray the confidence of their worshipers merely for the pleasure of seeing the pain it causes these unhappy individuals. It would seem that in the face of all that We know of Women, We would leave them alone. But We do notg somehow we cannot. The greatest of male writers on the subject of falsity in Women have at last succumbed to the artifices of the fairer sex. Nor will I prove wiser than my fellows. In spite of all I have ever known or said about girls, I am attracted irresistibly to them, there is a fascina- tion in new feminine faces that I cannot overcome-do not want to overcome. i shall go on through life hoping to marry one of these very ra.rc ideal girls. Per haps I shall. More likely I will not. Bu nevertheless, I am still susceptible to th charms of my frailer companions. I can 't help it. I don 't even Want to helj it, because men are fools, and-I am man! THE QUILL 9 But Chl The Perficiy of Man WOMAN always gets the last word. So say the men. But after such exorbitant accusa- tions, we must rise in defense of the so- called weaker sex. YVeaker? Oh, the perfidy of man! From the beginning of time woman has shown strength. While the man sinks, the woman swims, the man quits, the woman struggles on, prodding friend man, urging him toward his goal. Other- wise, he would be left by the wayside. WVOIIIHII is the stimulant for man, the go-gctter, the achiever-without her, man accomplishes nothing. She is his inspiration! Friend Moon says, "Women are vamps and men are fools." Merely a slight change in the wording makes it read more correctly. "A few women are vamps but all men are fools." Since the time of Eve, woman has increased in intellect and dexterity, until at the present day, she is able to compete with those males who have reached the highest degree of insincerity and prevarication. Our male admirers HJ have not yet realized that the women have finally "caught on." Their smooth intriguing "lines," polished to the "nth" degree, go in one ear and out the other. We are not fall- ing hook, line, and sinker, to be disil- lusioned as poor, innocent Maggie and Phoebe might have been, but we .are hold- ng our own. Are we vamps? No, but ve are merely playing the game with you. 3ut the poor men are surprised, aston- shed-they do not comprehend! They ire becoming discouraged-instead of 'ur falling for the artifices, we are re- aliating, and the men have not yet thor- ughly realized that perhaps the women, oo, are merely "giving a line." They still are fools enough to think that we believe their tales. Poor, abused darlings! Clinging to il- lusions in matrimonial affairs! VVonder- ful dreams wiped out when the honey- moon is over! Likewise is the woman disappointed. But she has come to ex- pect, not an idol of perfection, but a com- panion. But poor man !-he thinks friend wife will always adore him as she did when he wore his company manners, was chivalrous, obliging, kind, consider- ate-but alas! She knows her fate when he comes down to breakfast, grumpy, cross, unshaven and growls, "Ez break- fast reacly?,' But we are not shocked- we expect it! Our antagonist, so-to-speak, says, "They fthe girlsj make capital out of the romantic ideas which come so natural- ly to young men." Let us pause to laugh. He goes on to say that we use their tender passions for the purpose of embarrassing and confusing our ad- mirers. It was once said, "Love is blind.'l Surely this is proof. Friend man seems to Want a Romeo and Juliet love adair, moonlight and roses, twilight, soft murmuring breezes, a full moon, en- chanting music-bloohey! Come back to 1930, to the age when we do not believe in all that romantic slush. But, laying all pretentious malice and joking aside, we confess We are not per- fect! We, too, still succumb to your manly charms in spite of all your defects. We, who claim to have the upperhand in opposite sex, are more ensnared ourselves. We ridiculing the nearly always realize that we can fool some of the men all of the time, and all of the men some of the time, but we can 't fool all of the men all of the time. 10 THII QUILL Bits C' Verse Life Br NVILDA FARMER The coming of dawn is a wonderful thing, The morn 's on the doorstep and night's on the wing, The day lies ahead to do with as we will, As does a blank page that is for us to fill, And when day is going and light starts to fade, Then will we be pleased with the record we 've made?

It fills the mind with fancies- lt fills the heart with delight. I see in that sky of red, A city embedded there. It 's streets and homes are gold, like New Jerusalem. So fair! Gazing again at the sky, I'm surprised to find now there, Instead of the glorious light A sort of lonely glare. The homes and the streets are gone. No more the city I see. The lights of an hour before, Have faded into the sea. Dreams By MARJORY IIFGGINS "Down at the edge of a wandering lane That runs by the cares of day, A misty air-castle stands there in thf dusk VVhere fairies and hobgoblins dwell, And that is the home of a crooked old gnome Who's making up dream-things to sell my dear- The lovliest dreams to sell! He makes pretty dreams of little boy sighs- He weaves with a thread of love, The airiest fancies of lover's blind eye And fashions it all from above- IIe wraps in a smile-every once in while- And calls it an unborn kiss, my dear- The dream of an unborn kiss.

Such thoughts were running through my mind as I idly watched' an airplane Hoating lazily through the blue vault above. I was being paid for watching it too, but be- tween times I had to wait on our cus- tomers for I was working in a station. VVorking with me was another young fellow named Carol. Now this said Carol is chuck full of ideas of fun, and his ideas furnished a great deal of amusement for us two. "Know anything new we can do for fun today?', I asked Carol. "Yeah, I was just thinking of some- thing," he replied, "just listen to this." And he unfolded a plan which made me chuckle to think of it. VVe took an old automobile cushion which we had been sitting on and placed a three-foot piece of pipe in it, just under the upholstering and resting on the springs. Vtfe ran a wire from this pipe through the station window and hooked it to an apparatus which we had made. This apparatus consisted of a six-volt storage battery, a Ford coil, contact points and a switch. The switch we placed on the door casing so that We could see the fun while operating it. Well, one of us had to sit on the seat to make sure that everything was all right and that there wasn't too much current. i'You try it, Francis, and I 'll just give you a little jolt," came from Carol. t'Yeah, you're sure funny," I shot back, "you get on there and let me give you the little jolt." "No, that'll never do," replied Carol, "let's draw straws, the short one sits on it." As you might expect, 1 got the short one. I gingerly took the required posi- tion not knowing when to expect the jolt. I sat very, very lightly on that cushion with my hands on the edge and ready to jump off. Wham! I caught that jolt right where I sit down, and boy, did it tingle! "Owooooooooooo," came from me as I lit on the ground about ten feet from the cushion. "Say, Carol, I've taken 100 volts in the hand many a time, but that was nothing compared to what I just took from that cushion," and I wasnyt kidding him either, l carried a red spot on my leg for several days where I sat on that pipe. Oh, yes, to be sure, I hung one on Carol before an hour was up when he absent- mindedly sat down after waiting on a customer. VVe had a great deal of fun out of this idea until a friend got mad and tore the wires lose after we had shocked him. ....,,.-.,i,4.i-- Joy BY CORRINE AIAEXANDER There is the garden at dawn The flowers awaking, Each is glorious with dew, Joy in the making.

At 3:15 we were in that room, And silence was kind that hour, What a torture! what a doom! .For whom ?-Why' for me an' the girl next door. 14 THE Qlillil. The Cruel Critic OT IIO! The life-guards! Here we are again, folks! Bigger and better than ever! Get out the sponges. You 'll need 'em after reading Hliemodeled in Vain." For the tears will come, shed them where you will. Page Priscilla W'ayne5 we need some ad- vice. Fan you imagine doing a reverse on your personality, falling heir to bli37,000. and still losing your one and only? The worm will turn, but it hasn't anything on our Remodeled Suitor. Ah, well, good old Santa came anyhow, riding on the silver lining behind the dark cloud of gloom. "Joy," Miriam li'iefer's little poem, touches the right spot. l'hristmas will bc Uhristnias. The rustic bells ring, The gay children sing. W'e all like our presents so fine, so fue: When pop secs the bill, lIe'll uialfe out his will, For papa is Santa Ulausf- Oh, shoot! We eonldntt think of a word to rime with Hfinef' but we do feel sorry for the head of the household at this time of the year. Ach, du lieber Augustine! Hoch der Kaiser! or something else Hollandish! Maxine Uonkwright must have been born with a pair ot' wooden shoes on her feet, at least. Such a Dutchman, but you ean't really blame him with those children. Does experience teach a dear school? Klieg pardon, is our quota-tion correet?j lioy-o-boy-o-boy-oi-boy.l lVe're tallring about "The Perfidy of Womanf' Come all ye disillusioned nien if ye want to hear the story of a brace gentleman who is not afraid to ery out in his anguish. Delnier, we were curious to lfnow whether lhose wrinkles in your manly brow were caused by study or sorrow. Since perus- ing the tragic recital of your bitter, ah, bitter, bitter experiences, we know that you hare been in the depths of despair. "I am not afraid to die. but I regret that I have only one life to give for my country." Like Esther of old, who pled with the king for the lives of her captive tribesmen, a new Esther arises to the glorious defense of womanhood. Esther had hardly finished the reading of Del- mer's stirring tirade when she called, "Where's a pencil Get me some paper. A ream! Two reams! Yea, maybe three reams!" Mr. Stratton reached in his vest pocket. Ile pulled out his trusty Eversharp. Ile put it back in his pocket and pulled out a pencil of the 5-for-a- nickel variety. You see, he knows the ways of the QVILL staff. Then Esther began to write. She may be writing yet. We don 't know. But we grabbed off the first two scorching sheets before they burned up, and here they are, a reply to Delmer. VVhat do you think ol Both of them can't be right, can they? Or can they? Francis Shaw has a funny idea of fun. lVe think there are enough electric chairs in the world without inrenting new ones. Oh, well, boys will be boys. Poetry! A rhythmical outlet for the emotions of human beings. VVe're rather proud of our poems in this issue. Any- body can write jingles, but not poems. Il'e thought the day of the limerick had passed. Not so! That five line stanza with the whip-cracker conclusion still knocks 'ent off. If you donit like our limerielrs, bring your copy of the QUILL baelf to Editor Shower, and he'll stick: his hand down deep in the pocket ii which he keeps his 'money-and tell you he is sorry. Tl12ll7S all. Still keeping those New Year's resolutions? No, we aren 't either Tin: Eorroks. W1 ly!

It was at this time that Johnny Elliott made his debut as a radio announcer, and Vernon Holstad henceforth became known as Hiram, the hired man. The play, "Long Distance," was greatly lauded, as were the musical numbers, the speeches, alld refreshments. HOWARD O. WISTROBI "E.rtremPly busy, but quiet about it."

Others who took part in the program were Helen McMahn, Margaret Chinn, Howard Porter, Juanita Kirfman, D011 Thompson, VVayne Vlfallar, Pearl Doty, Josephine Allen, and the Senior Double Quartet. Senior Educational Program Everett E. Davis was the principal speaker at the Education Program given for seniors NVednesday afternoon, No- vember 19. His talk was on "Teaching as a Professionf' The musical part of the program was furnished by Harold Shover who gave two piano solos, James Caldwell and VVayne NVallar in a trumpet duet, and the Senior Double Quartette composed of Josephine Allen, Linda Pohl, Armena Lundgren, Helen IIHHSOII, Robert Burns, Harold Snyder, Richard Thompson, and Harrison Rider. Refreshments were served in the third floor corridor. THE QULILL 35 Twenty Years Hence INETEEN fifty-one finds tl1e world still running around the snn and Bob Burns still chasing after his shekels.

Thomas Arthur Versaw, Jr., and his faithful deacons, Harrison Rider and Bruce Farmer, have for many years bee11 conducting revival meetings in various parts of the country. Among their outstanding accomplishments they have successfully converted most of the dangerous Dan Campbell Gang includ- ing Scarface Al Flook, Poker Face Brill, Bob Dawson, Erny Brady, John Carpe, and two women accomplices, Pearl Doty and Margaret Chinn. Laurel Shaffer is operating the Clar- ence Shawver Beauty Salon. Under her are the head manicurist, Elaine Cope- landg facial expert, Hazel Crozier, chief equipment operator, Betty Koenigs- berger, and the repair men, Don Merrill and Floyd Needels. A matronly cus- tomer, the former Hazel Black, is brought on her daily trip to the shop by her chauffeur, Willard Fredregill, in a 32 cylinder Dillon, manicured and polished by Alvin Nelson. Nitro-glycerine Caldwell and Dynamite Bates have long been rivals in the fight game, but will co-operate long enough to attempt a victory over Art Tillman, world 's heavyweight champion in a 10 round bout at Madison Square Garden, backed Hnancially by the multimillion- aire, Louis Galinsky. The second president of the United States to leave his country in the midst of his term of office was the Honorable Francis J. O'Conne1l, in the fall of'1950. He and his cabinet, Russell Olson, secre- tary of state, Cortes Braught, dignified secretary of labor, Geer Stanton, secre- tary of the treasury, and Morris Orman, secretary of agriculture, made an exten- sive hunting trip to the South Pole. How- ever, the government was more ably handled by the substitutes than by the President himself. Helen McMahan took the chief executive 's chair, assisted by a cabinet composed of Marjorie Olson, Margaret Sutherland, Hazel Priebe, Reva Richards, Mary Rogers and Kath- erine Steklenburg, Dorothy Lundgren, at the present time speaker of the House, wields tremendous authority over all legislation. Q This same year Principal C. E. Craig of East High hired Miss Josephine VValsh to teach the English classes of Miss Gabriel, while said distinguished pedagog enjoyed her thirty-second trip abroad. Among the little students in Miss Walsh's Sophomore groups were Jackie Adlon, Little Mary Holstad, and Donald Thompson, Jr., all of whom had been advised by their fond parents to take English 7 and 8 above all things. The new Smith Boulevard in East Des Moines was named after the noted chemist who did so much to influence Mayor Dick Simpson to have the pillars of the city hall made of calcium car- bonate instead of marble. The newly appointed policewoman of Greater New York is Catherine Pierick. Her deputies are Lois Longnecker, Louise McCullough and Bernice VVitte. Lucile Williams and Evelyn Miller, two influential women's leaders, have 36 THE QUILL started a driving crusade against the in- human treatment of the Board of Educa- tion toward helpless, innocent children. Superintendent Upchurch furnishes their greatest opposition. The airway magnate, Robert L. Jen- nings, has just added five new Schwartz ships to his private stock of planes to be piloted by Hugh Hartley, Bob Hermann, Roland Pierce, Rolf Sorenson, and the well known ace, Jimmy Parker. The ground mechanics are Thelbert Smoin, Elwyn NVelch and HowardiVVistrom. Monsieur Augier, an authority on love affairs, and known in real life as Ricky Thompson, has recently been added to the staff of the "Shover Daily." Evelyn McHenry, Margaret McGrew, Nina Harmon and Astrid Anderson have a private detective bureau. Their specialty is running down criminals of the male sex. Howard Porter has just published his twelfth mystery play. He received his inspiration for this sort of work from "In the Next Room." A petition asking for the- abolition of dance halls in Iowa is being persistently carried around by Josephine Allen Cmaiden namel, but Wayiie VVallar vigorously protests, as he is the con- ductor of the famous Syncopated Sex- tette, considered the finest interpreters of modern jazz in the middle west. The members are Lee Simpson, Harold Snyder, Dale Niffenegger, Emelio Vig- naroli, Arnold Selindh and Harold Will- son. Their advance agents are Marianne Shuman and Louise Johnson. Among the names already secured by the former Miss Allen are Pauline Henry, Helen Johnson, Nellie Hansen, Juanita Kirf- man and Leona Ore. Persons who would very likely oppose the conditions of such a petition might be found in the Hoot Owl Night Club, efficiently operated by Frances Larson and Emma Price. The Winsome lass in the check room is none other than Mar- garet Peck. The headwaiter in "Tux" is La Roy Warren, and the royal bouncer is Bob Rook. The chorus girls- there for an indefinite engagement are Violet Quinn, Gladys Dean, Hazel Green, Mary Ann Rojek, Avis Sweem, Clara Rosenfeld, Arlene Miller and Car- men Munson, with specialty acts by Esther Carlson, Harold Thayer and Robert Thornton. Being an aviatrix has lost its thrills for Leona Latta, for the novelty of being a dare devil has worn off. Her daring companions have been Cleo McKeeman and Ernestine Brown. A few miles out of the city is the largest truck farm in Iowa, efficiently run by Evelyn Beck and Louise Ander- son. Since the farm has been steadily increasing in size and production, the proprietors have found it necessary to employ several helpers: Thelma Gilles- pie, Margaret Hanbury, Dolores Phillips and Linda Pohl. George Sandberg is all-around handy man. The principal speaker at the annual Civic Club banquet in Grylls' Tea Rooms was Senator John Elliott, famous as the author of the Congressional bill forbid- ding the Japanese in California to eat rice with chop sticks. Senator Elliott explained his attitude. During his talk many of those present snored audibly. Two hours later, at the end of the Sen- ator's speech, the Rev. Fredrick H. Clausen gave a thirty minute talk on his experiences in South Africa. Sitting beside him at the dinner table were his assistants who aided him with his work in his missionary colony up till a short time ago when they returned on a fur- lough. These noted persons were Ar- mena Lundgren, Margaret Allen, Zola Brandsfield, and Gordon Cox.

The first round of the contest was won by the fol- lowing home rooms: Miss Brotherton's and Miss Gabriel's rooms were both defaulted. Miss McBride 's room defeated Mr. Bingham 's. Mr. Stratton 's speakers conquered Miss Barge 's. Miss Woodman 's room advanced by subduing Miss Chesley's room. Mr. Olsen 's room was defeated by Miss Knaueris speakers. Miss Mitchell 's orators out-talked Mrs. Alderson 's would-be H Websters. " Mr. Houser's mathematicians were de- feated by Mr. Seever's historians. Mr. Wilsoiiis room eliminated Mr. Gabrielson 's. The winners of the first round were paired and the results are as follows: Miss McBride 's home room won by de- fault. Miss Woodman 's room advanced into the semifinals by eliminating Mr. Strat- ton is home room. Miss Knauer's speakers were defeated by Miss Mitchell is team. Mr. Seever's candidates defeated Mr. Wilson 's. The semifinals contests were held dur- ing the lunch periods and the pairings were as follows: Miss McBride vs. Miss Wooclman dur- ing the first lunch period. Miss Mitchell vs. Mr. Seevers during the second lunch period. Esther Sipling and Delmer Moon, Miss McBride 's representatives, were de- feated by Kenneth Brown and Russell Olson of 311. During the second lunch period, Mary Lou Martin and Lucille McNeley of Miss Mitchell's home room QUILI. emerged victorious after conquering Mr. Seever's team, composed of Marie Vestre and Esther Osness. The final contest between room 7, Miss Mitchell, and 311, Miss NVoodman, was won by 311. The members of the win- ning team were Kenneth Brown and Russell Olson. The contest was under the supervision of Mr. Gabrielson. From the material discovered by the contests, Mr. Gabriel- son built his team which represented East in the City Contest. The team which represented East in the contest on Friday, December 5, 1930, at North High, was Esther Osness and Melford Boyd. The results of the City Contest were as follows: Those winning individual honors were : First, Murray Nelson, Roosevelt, second, Ed Anderson, Lincoln, third. Ruth Adams, Lincoln, and fourth, Melford Boyd, East. The school ranking was: First, Lin- colng second, Roosevelt, third, East High, and fourth, North High. Other speakers were: Joe Silver from Roosevelt, Esther Osness from East High, and Bennie Goddman and Delbert Sterrett from North High. East High Has Dance The Social Committee of East High sponsored the last all-school matinee dance of this semester, Friday, Decem- ber 19. Instead of being in the gym as is cus- tomary, the dance was held in the party hall on the third floor of the main build- ing. The hall was attractively decorated with evergreens and Christmas colors. Josephine Allen, chairman of the So- cial Committee, was the hostess, and the music was furnished by the Social Or- chestra,'under the direction of Julian Lutz. THE QUILL 43 John Elliott The United States has its Hoovers. Smiths, and Fords, but East has an Elliott. John Elliott is one of the most popular boys ever to attend the "institu- tionf' It is a popular belief that to be a leader one must be born in a loff cabin or in a John denied through the chinks and cracks of a log cabin, but he did admit that his folks used to own one -maybe that. in a way, can be blamed for his rise to the top. Fort Dodge lost something when John migrated from his birthplace to Des Moines. 1 D house of such construction. that he first saw daylight NVhen John attended grade school he was a leader. VVhen he was in Amos Hiatt Junior High, he played on the basket ball team and was secretary of the graduating class. Our interest in John is centered. however, on his activities in East. During his brief stay in East High, John has received "oodles and gobsn of honors. Ile has been president of the Philatalin Flub, and because he has held every office in E Epi Tan, he has been awarded an 'fEpi" monogram. "Johnny" was one of the most pop- ular cheer leaders East has known, he has been an important cog in the school machinery by serving as an usherg and he has efficiently acted as business man- ager of the QUILL. Perhaps the greatest honor that John received is the distinction of being Presi- dent of the Student Council for two semesters. This is very unusual and has not happened more than once before. He also, as representative of the Senior B 's, received the gavel at thc 1930 graduating class banquet. And now, as a fitting climax to his career as a leader, he has been elected King of the NVinter at the Senior Winter Festival. John not only has been a leader in activities, but he has set an example in scholarship. During his three years in East he has received only two Ts, the rest being 1 's. Quill Stay? Member Wins Recognition East High again entered the limelight ot' the nation when the poem, "Proph- eey" by Margaret Peck, was published in the book, "Best Creative Vtfork in American High Schools" for 1929-30. This book contains examples of the best prose and verse written by American high school students. It is published by the Quill and Scroll society which holds annual contests open to all high school students in this country. This year there were entries from every state in the Union and Hawaii. The judges were some of the leading literary men of the nation. Besides her literary talent, Margaret is well known throughout the school for her scholastic achievements. She has made a record of having no grades but ones throughout her high school career. Fon- sultation of the records shows that this feat has been duplicated only once or twice in the history of East Iligh. 44 THE New Year's Resolutions Upon a. careful survey, a list of New Year's resolutions made by the consci- entious QUILL staff was disclosed. This short list we submit for your approval: The Advisor : To be more lenient with the staff and allow them more liberty. The Editor-in-Chief : To refrain from assigning news articles. The Associate Editor: Not to be of any assistance whatsoever to anyone. The Reporters: 1. To write at least two editoria.ls for the QUILL. 2. To report to the QUILI. room each day on time, and to work on QUILL throughout the period. 3. To avoid conversation in the QUILL room. 4. To have news articles finished on time. 5. To set an example for the Sopho- mores. 6. To be, in general, a bunch of pests. Thanksgiving Donations Following the annual custom, Tha.nks- giving donations for the Home of Friendless Children at Twentieth and High Streets were made this week. The contributions were brought and arranged on the stage as part of the decoration for the Thanksgiving program on Wednes- day, November 26. Art The art department of East High works on a large scale. The activities of this department are not confined to school alone, but unusual bits of work are done for outsiders. One of these projects has been ac- complished by Harold VVillson, 12 A. He completed fifty zinc etchings of the Hoyt Sherman Place for Mrs. George Cosson to be used for Christmas cards. It took Harold one week to finish them. QUILL On the Air On Wednesday, December 10, 1930, East High sent an hour's program of musical airs over the air. If We do say it :-the ether surely had a treat when the high C's and low "O's" of the East High students went floating out into space. The villain, "Mike," seems to be a new person, Cwho reformed him, no one knowsb for from the reports re- ceived, the program was a success. Friend "Mike," as we can now call him, had no evil effect upon our martyrs. Why, no one knows, unless Eloise Hodges cast him under her spell, or, perhaps "Rudy" Lutz hit him over the head with his clarinet. QWe suspect that Mr. Tall- man might have added to "Mike's" turn for the better by tickling him in the ribs with the bat0n.j The representatives of East who com- peted against static are listed below: Boy 's Glee Club, Girl 's Glee Club, Mixed Chorus, Boy 's Quartette, Paul Keeney, Eloise, Ardis and "Billie," the Crooning Co-eds, Mabel Lansrude, Julian Lutz, Barbara Harding, Mr. H. H. Tall- man. Keep your radio sets in tune, for some- time in February East High is again going into space. Ugh! Ugh! Heap Big Chief! War paint and medicine men were very much in evidence on November 13, when a council of war was held in the auditorium. The red and black Wigwam, the medicine men, and the stalwart braves stirred up among the squaw-men and squaws of this East side camp a very high degree of enthusiasm. Following the council of war, Supt. Studebaker gave a very inspiring talk which added fuel to the fiame of spirit. But best of all-Cas you rememberj school was dis- missed at noon. THE QU-ILL 45 Master Salesman East has a master salesman i11 her midst. Clarence Craig has made a rec- ord of salesmanship during his career in East that will be hard to beat. The above photograph was snapped when Salesman Craig was attempting to sell a tieket to the play "ln the Next Room" to his friend "Cannon" But wait, dear friend, I see I am mistaken. Judging from the smile on Clarence's face and the absence of a ticket in his hand. we are led to believe that he was successful in selling friend "Cannon" a ticket. If any of you saw Mr. Cannon "booming" around the auditorium the night of the production you can blame it on Clarence. Some high spots of Clareneels selling career are: Extravaganza ........,... 46 tickets Sun-up ,,,..,,.,.,,.... ......., 2 2 tickets In the Next Room ...... 35 tickets Because of the above record wc, the What 's Doing Editors, confer upon Clarence the degree Master Salesman- so ddlrhlgi fthe-fliemainder of his days at East let him be known as Clarence Craig, M.S. 4 XVhen Clarence was asked how he sold so many tickets he said that he worked. Now if anyone wants to work maybe he can break Master Craigys record. HH. M. S. Pinaforei' The "II, M. S. Pinaforew is to be presented by the students of East High the first week in March. It is one of the light operas by W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan.. Eleven characters will be chosen 'from the voca.1 organizations of the q and the choruses will consist of dents. A selected pit orchestra Willlggltfflirilmaliy the presentation. Mr. H. H. Tillman will be in charge of the musical direction, and Miss Woodman will direct the stage action. The east, though not as yet selected, is certain to be an excellent one since East High has such fine talent. The list of characters are: The Rt. Hon. Sir Joseph Porter, K. C. B., First Lord ofthe Admiralty. Captain Corcoran, "Commanding II. M. S. Pinaforef' Ralph Rackstraw, Able Seaman. Dick Deadeye. Able Seaman. Bill Bobstay, Boatswain's Mate. Toni Tucker, Midshipmite. Sergeant of Marines. Josephine, The Captain 's Daughter. Hcbe, Sir Josephs' First Cousin. Little Buttercup, A Portsmouth Bum- boat. YVoman. Chorus of First. Lord 's Sisters, his Cousins. his Aunts, Sailors, Marines, ete. Act I introduces the leading char- acters on deck of "Il, M. S. Pinaforef' in the harbor of Portsmouth. lt also dis- closes the secret love of the captain's daughter for one of the sailors and their -16 THE QUILL plot to elope. However, this plan is over- heard by the villain who resolves to thwart it. Act II shows the deck at night. The plot for an elopement that night is re- vealed, and the Captain confronts the lovers as they are stealthily leaving the vessel. By a strange twist of events, the Captain is reduced to the rank of the sailor, his daughter 's lover is made Cap- tain and the lovers are reunited. Disillusionment ' A very sad incident has been 1'CCOI'Cl9d in the annals of East High. VVe deeply regret that such a painful experience has happened to one so devoted to his work, and so loyal to the cause of mankind, accordingly, we are publishing his story to save you, dear readers, from such an experience, and to comfort in some de- gree, his aching heart. You know it is a peculiar custom for little boys, and quite frequently little girls, to be unbelievably good a few weeks preceding Christmas. Of course, we can- not lay our finger on the exact reason, but we are leaving it to you to draw your own conclusions. Therefore, Howard Porter, having written to Santa Claus for a little red and black wagon, was a model child. Mrs. Porter stated that he even made pathetic but successful attempts to take his cod liver oil and eat his spa- ghettig and we even heard that he went to bed every night at 8 :30. However, as Christmas appeared, Howard grew more and more excited. When Christmas Eve finally came, he hung up his stock- ing as usual, but, too impatient to wait, Howard climbed to the roof, there to watch for the dashing reindeers and jingling sleighbells of good old St. Nicholas. But, alas, he waited in vain, and not only did he discover that there is no Santa Claus, but he also has become the owner and sole proprietor of a consump- tive cough. He has our deepest sym- pathy, and we propose that everyone do- nate ten cents for davenports to be pur- chased and used in the QUILL room. Noon Assembly The Rev. E. E. Hall of the Pennsyl- vania Avenue Baptist Church intro- duced the speaker, Rev. Anton Cedar- holm, in the noon assemblies, December 8. This educational talk stressed being strong physically, mentally and morally. All who attended thought the speech well worth their while. The 9 A's Come to East The 9 A students of the various Junior High Schools visited East High on Tues- day, December 16. Upon their arrival they were ushered into the Auditorium where the following program was pre- sented: Talks-Mr. Burton, Mr. Prichard, Miss Helmreich. Introduction of John Elliott. SolofDorothy Campus. Talk on Athletics-Frank Manny. Explanation of Point System-Riclr ard Frisk. Reading-Dorothy Smith. Talk on East High Clubs-VVilda Ed- wards. Boys' Quartet. East High yells and song-Cheer leaders. Following the program the students made a tour of the building which ended in the cafeteria where they were served refreshments. Another ripple in the sea of Senior activities was the debut of the Senior Calendars on December 18, 1930. Due to the efforts of John Elliott these cre- ated quite a favorable stir in the ranks of the Seniors, who for a time, were busily engaged in procuring the auto- graphs of teachers and fellow students. THE QUILL 47 ORGANIZATIONS ' Claribel Sommerville To Whom It May Concern .7 ! I It has always been the boast of East High that every project was a success because every student did his share. During the last year five home rooms out of fifty-five have been among the leaders in every school campaign. Whether this inactivity is due to the lack of "East High spirit" or to the old "bug bear" hard times, it is uncertain to say. Most ot the inactive rooms, which number about fifty, seem perfectly eontent to sit back and let the "other fellow" do the work. Some of you will reply that only a certain number can win, but just remem- ber that no room has a monopoly on any intramural contest. It is about time that these winning rooms should have their feathers clipped. , Hoping to give you a run for your money. 1 am, NONE or THE AMmT1oi's FEW." Sailing in 104 lf you have never been sailing, try it and see how far you would get if you didn 't have a sail on the boat. NVhen we accepted 311 's challenge for the ticket race. we were so confident that we thought we could sail along nicely. 1Vhile we continued sailing, the cap- tain became angry once an'd remarked that if we didn't sight land soon we would be thrown overboard. Finally after much labor and sailing, we reached land and much to our sorrow we had reached the wrong destination. Instead of winning the race over 311 we defeated Home Room 4's challenge to us. Their sailors also worked quite diligently to Howard Porter win the race. Even though we didn 't win the race with 311, we are ready to try again. E Epi Tan Dear Editor: The Forensic club stated in the last QUILL that they started the year with, perhaps, the most vim and vigor they have ever shown. The E Epi Tan thinks that it is about time the Forensics started the year with something besides gloom and non-activity. The Forensic states that the Epis do not know which language our name was in. The Epis wish to say that their name came from the Greek. This is more than the Forensics can say for theirs which came from the Latin Hforensis. " The Forensics accuse the Epis of giv- ing no competition in debating, but the Forensics have as yet issued no challenges because of sad memories of former de- bates. Signed: Members of the E EPI TAN. P. S. Please print their reply. Forensic Dear Editor: The Forensic wishes to state that the Epis have replied most nobly to the chal- lenge we published in the last issue of the QUILL. The Forensic also wishes to state that the Epis say their name was in the the Greekg they evidently are not living up to their name. I As for the outcome of the last debate: There ,arc not members in the Epis old enough to remember when they won the last debate. Tun Foiznnsie. 48 THE QUILL Home Room 202 Home Room 202 hasn't done much re- cently except study, buy tickets, sub- scribe for the QUILL, and donate to va- rious welfare funds. But we have a stu- dent who knows more about India than any other person in East High, bar none. We are speaking of Robert Swan, 12B, who lived in that far distant country until the year 1928. Robert has the true Englishman 's ac- cent and greets with pleasure any fellow countryman who speaks the same tongue. Ask him about Gandhi and independence for India, he knows the facts. In spite of the fact, however, that Robert was raised in India and received most of his education there, he is now just as much a true, red-blooded American as any of us. Home Room 110 Two ofiicers of Home Room 110 have some distinctive qualities which probably cannot be equalled in the school. Alfred Mohler, the home room repre- sentative shows promises of being a great magician. Hand him a half-dollar some day and see how long it takes for it to disappear. Al's present record is 1.5 seconds. There is something unusual a.bout the behavior of LeRoy Warren, the home- room president. He claims that his senior pictures are the best that he has ever had taken. Happenings in 317 Every member of home room 317 sub- mitted an ,advertisement in the form of a poster for the contest staged in connec- tion with the all-school play, "In the Next Room." Miss Woodman, Mr. Vietti, and the play east selected the poster, made by Byron Kimball, that was used in advertising the play. Deloris Philips was awarded second place by the judges. Home Room 3 With a happy go lucky crew the ship "No, 3" left harbor, September 2, 1930. The first commander, president, a quiet reserved person, known as Iris Patter- son, steers the ship. Louise Anderson acts as second commander, vice president, and our operator, secretary, is Marjorie Nichols. Together with the captain, Miss May and foreign merchant representa- tive, Frances Larson, this ship has not hit rocks yet. To break the monotony of the life at sea each Friday morning one section of the crew presents a program. SHIP! AHOY!

The club officers are as follows: Presi- dent, Denny Littlewood, Vice President, Harrison Rider, and Seeretary-Treas- urer, Dorothy Lundgren. Miss Church and Mr. Goodell are faculty advisers. THE QUILL 49 Guests at the Various Clubs , EVERAL of the clubs have been able to secure guests who have been willing to serve on the programs. The Shorthand Speed Society, the Home Economics Club, Shakespearean, and G. A. A. tie for iirst place honors since each has had two guests. The Short- hand Speed Society has been privileged to hear Mr. Walrath, a court reporter, and Mr. Slinker, director of Commercial Education, who spoke about the observa- tions he had made during his tour of Europe. Shakespearean enjoyed a program pre- sented December 9 by two guests, Miss Gwendolyn McCleary and Mr. Tallman. Miss McCleary, a former East High student, who is now studying dramatic art at Drake, gave an interesting talk on Shakespeare. Mr. Tallman, director of music at East, sang. The Home Economics Club was de- lighted to hear Miss Ruth Wilson, editor of the fiction and feature departments of the H People 's Popular Monthlyf' who recently gave a talk on beauty. Mrs. Helen Wagner, supervisor of home eco- nomics, was a guest at the Annual ban- quet. G. A. A. has heard Miss McKee, play- ground supervisor, talk on "Sportsman- ship H and Miss McDoughal on ' ' Competi- tion Between Girls." These are not the only clubs which have been so honored, for the Science Club and Zetas have each had one guest. Miss McBride read "Marse Chann at the last meeting of the Zetagathean Liter- ary Society. The Science Club, which was organ- ized in October, has already had a guest speaker. Mr. May from Drake Univer- sity demonstrated the Bell-Hoew visual- izing machine. Clubs in Brief Aeolian Aeolian held a Christmas party Decem- ber 17. Mary Terrill and Eloise Hodges were in charge of the party which in- cluded a program, a grab bag, and rc- freshments. E. 11. s. The Shorthand Speed Society The Shorthand Speed Society has been very active this semester. The club has organized a newspaper for the in- terest of the society and shorthand de- partment. Those who were chosen to edit the paper were: Editor, Frances Larson, Associate Editor, Marjorie Ol- son, Business Manager, Emma Price, Art, Katherine Pierickg Literary, Doro- thy Vifeaverg News, Ingeborg Hegnag Jokes, Josephine Ringrose. Louise Nessif and Agnes Burke won first and second prizes respectively in a shorthand constitutional contest spon- sored recently by the club. E. II. S. Home Economics Marjorie Cotton presided as toastmis- tress at the annual home economics ban- quet, December 15, 1930. The program consisted of a group of toasts: Sleigh Ride, Marion Barr, Hay, Nina Harmon, People That Go, Marjorie Castings, Destination, Mary Johnson. The music consisted of a piano solo by Margaret Hanbury, and a vocal solo by Mary Louise Mussell. E. II. S. G. A. A. The G. A. A. presented a short play, 'fThe Outsider," recently. The cast in- cluded Maxine Johnson, Hazel Vincent, Opal German, Marjorie Nichols, Kath- erine Williams, Mary O'Bryne, and Margaret Harriss. 50 TEACHER MRS. ALDERSON, ...... . MR. AUGUSTINE ........

THE QUILL 51 ATH LETI-CS Beryl Peavey Polar Bears Halt East High , The contest this year with North High failed to materialize into the foretold and expected victory for Lee Township. Our team offered a. strong defense, but the Polar Bears were not to be halted in their drive for the first touchdown of the game. Each team gained two touch- downs and one extra point which com- pleted the scoring of the contest. However, the Red and Black proved itself the superior battler in the latter half of the fray, during which time they carried the ball all over the field, but repeatedly failed at the important mo- ment. Lee Township was in possession of the ball on the Polar Bear's o11e-inch line when the final whistle sounded, the score remaining 13-13. Roosevelt Wins City Title Although East High managed to battle the Rough Riders to a 6-6 tie, Roosevelt technically received the city champion- ship due to their 2-0 victory over the Polar Bears. The contest was not unlike the preced- ing one between East and North High, since the Red and Black failed to verify the "dope" and did not exhibit their customary form until the latter part of the battle. East. High heartily congratulates the new champions on their success, but real- ly "wc didn't think they could do it." All-C ity Selections The All-Uity football eleven for this year was composed of four Rough Riders, three Polar Bears, and four Lee Tow11- ship men. The four East High men contained in Hazel Ward the Tribwne's selection were: Max Tuinstra, guard, Harry Hayes, half- back, Bob Rook, fullback, and Thor Bergstrom, end. Following are some quotations from the article: "The other first team end, Bergstrom, was hard to block in and was a sensa- tional pass receiver. ' ' "Tuinstra of East was not far behind the Rough Rider "find," and the two made a good pair of first string guards." 'tThe two first string halfbacks, Cum- mings of North and Hayes of East, were ideal halfbacks. Both could run the open field and were not afraid to keep driving for those additional inches after they were tackled. Each was a good pass receiver and as sure on the defense. ' ' "Rook, the Red and Black fullback, was in a class by himself. He starred in every game he played. His punting was phenomenal, his passes miraculously accurate, his line plunging terrific, and his tackling deadly. Big and fast he wasn't stopped all season." East High me11 securing places on the second string eleven were : Versil Deskin, tackle, Don Ellis, center, and Lyle Riekebaugh, quarterback. All-State Grid Team This season East High succeeded in placing only one man on the all-state eleven. West Waterloo and Davenport were the only schools gaining two places on the first team. In addition to Bob Rook, who gained an end position on the first team, East 52 THE QUILL High placed three men in the honorable mention: Max Tuinstra, Thor Bergstrom, and Harry Hayes. The entire all-state eleven is as fol- lows: Rook, East Des Moines ........................ End Largent, Fort Dodge ........ .,.,.... E nd Frazee, Centerville ......... ,......

H alf Sadler, Creston .............. .....,, F ullback Moore, LeMars ........, Alternate CA quotation from the announcementl "Bob Rook of East Des Moines, and Harry Largent of Fort Dodge, are placed at the two end positions. Rook, who weighs 177 pounds, ranks among the best all-around players turned out in Des Moines in late years. He can do every- thing. Starting the season at end, Rook was called into the backfield to lug the ball and he proved to be East's best ground gainer. Because of his ability to drive through the line and skirt the ends, he was shifted to the backfield where he performed like a big leaguer. Rook had few equals as a punter. He did all the kicking for his team, at kick- offs and trying for points after touch- downs. He passed beautifully, heaving the ball low and accurate. His defensive work also stood out and his sensational flying tackle in the open to nail Layden, the Davenport speedboy, saved his team from a defeat in that game." Swimming All indications thus far lead us to pre- dict a successful season for our group of swimmers. Five letter men have returned for practice, in addition to the large group of beginners and underclassmen. Swimming is just another one of East High 's neglected sports, which merits considerably more attention than it has received. The nucleus of the year's team will consist of the five lettermen: Martin Kimber, Don Ellis, Judson Crawford, George Cosson and Clifford Morgan. The schedule for the season has not yet been definitely decided. Basket Ball Prospects With five letter men back on the squad, our basket ball team for this year prom- ises to enjoy an entirely successful season. The letter men back this year are : Thor Bergstrom, Richard Frisk, Lyle Ricke- baugh, Versil Deskin, and George Cilva. In addition to participation in the state meet in March, our schedule is as follows: Dec 12-Newton there. Dec 20-Albia here. Jan 3-Ottumwa here. Jan. 10-North High. Jan 16-Roosevelt. Jan. 17-Grinnell here. Jan 23-Lincoln. Jan 24-Creston there. Jan. 30-Open date. Jan. 31-Ottumwa there Feb. 7-Newton here. Feb 13-North High. Feb Feb Feb. 14-Grinnell there 20-Roosevelt. 28-Lincoln. THE QUILL 53 Newton Wins First Cage Meet During the first game of the season for both teams and with each team playing well, Newton succeeded in nosing out East High by a 17-13 score. Newton held a slight lead throughout the entire con- test, but finally clinched their victory in the last quarter with a four-point mar- gin. The initial line-up for the Red and Black this season contained Winder, Rickebaugh, Cilva, Frisk, Hokanson and Bergstrom. The East High second team also lost to Newton in the first part of the double- header, 13-10. Cross Country Gains Favor This new sport during the past season has received more attention than ever before. This fact is undoubtedly due in some degree to the appearance of the harriers between the halves of our foot- ball games. It has also been decided that service in crow country running will apply directly on the earning of a track monogram in the spring. The schedule for the past season consisted of dual meets with Perry and Muscatine, and the state meet at lowa City. The New Point System of Award- ing Monograms The new system of awarding mono- grams which was discussed recently and which is probably to be adopted in East High, would doubtless prove superior in many ways to our present system of athletic awards. In addition to the general require- ments of regularity, willingness, ob- servance, and loyalty, one must during his athletic activity accumulate at least 400 points in one sport. A 500-point limit is placed for one season's activity and not more than 100 points may be carried over to the following year. Points are won differently, the amount varying from 80 points for a first player in a tennis meet, to 4 points on each hole won in a golf match. Additional points are also awarded for service. Intramural Volley Ball The attention of every gym class dur- ing the past several weeks has been focused on the progress of the volley ball tournament being conducted among the gym classes. From among the many teams entered in the contest, the teams reaching the semi-finals were captained by the following: Selover, Versaw, Zook, and Johnson. The final contest, played between the teams of Selover and Ver- saw, was won by Versaw regardless of the losers' high opinions of themselves. A recent battle between Versaw's Var- mints and the Faculty Flatfoots resulted in a defeat of the proud pedagogues by a one-point margin. Mr. Lyman is errors and Mr. White 's mistakes featured throughout the contest for the teachers. Can You Imagine? 1. Inter-school basket ball tournaments for girls? 2. No more gym classes after this semester? 3. Chorus girls' dancing instructions? 4. No more exercises in the girls' gym classes? 5. Bob Rook not being a football player? 6. Dad Hoyt without a voice? 7. East High losing a football game? 8. East High without the wonderful school spirit? 9.

A., I would never have been able to swim. Just think, too, if I 'm ever out swimming a11d someone calls for help, I can save him--and perhaps I might get a medal for it! ! Oh Yeah? fThis from Mariel But really, Marie, I think it would be grand and glorious! Just think of all the honor! Along with that I'd like to be a swimming champ also." "You want too much, I'm afraid," ehirped Marie. CYou see, she didn't quite .agree with her chumis ideas.j All these exclamations had ensued Jean and Marie were learning a life-saving pointer in the East High Pool. Little did Jean realize that some day she was to become just as honored and just as notable as she had hoped to be- come. Let us now look into Jean 's life some years later and see if her high and mighty dreams of the future are actually to become a reality. What do you think? Could someone possibly have heard her wishes and transformed them into the almost impossible? Not one, but every newspaper i11 the country carried the news of Jean. Her name was widely honored by everyone. She was not only the swimming champion of her home town, but of the world as well! CDon't you imagine Marie was rather ashamed of the remarks she had made in response to Jean's aspirations of old fl Girls in G. A. A. Many girls have come out for G. A. A. sports this year. Those in the Tumbling class number twenty-six. If the boys' Tumbling Team doesn't watch out, they 're going to have some keen competition. QUILL It is evident that manyigirls want to learn to become good swimmers. There are thirty-six girls taking up this sport. Basket ball seems to be the favorite sport of the girls. There are exactly one-half a hundred members in this splendid sport. Baseball is a close runner-up to basket ball. Forty girls are taking part in this national game. If anyone should happen to visit the advanced swimming class, he would find there are plenty of girls wl1o want to learn more about swimming. The total number of girls out for this sport is nineteen. G. A. A. News The exciting sounds emerging from the gym doors and windows are almost enough to arouse anyone 's curiosity enough to investigate the reasons why. Vile have on Monday, Folk and Clog dancing, Tuesday, Swimming classes for beginners, Thursday, Tumbling and hit pin basket ball, Friday, Advanced swim- ming and life saving classes. At our last meeting on December 2, a short talk was given by Miss McKee, on the unlimited subject of "Sportsman- ship," The girls enjoyed her talk very much. A number of the G. A. A. girls presented a short play entitled "The Outsider." Refreshments were then served, and it seemed as if everyone en- joyed herself immensely. Officers ofG. A. A. G. A.

Miss Minetor has a weakness for a huge mnltimotored plane and hopes to be a mail pilot. She says, "At any rate.

From Editor to Editor Paul Cotton, '25, has made good in the way of editing. While attending East he was active in debating. ln his college days at Drake he was editor of the Times- Delphie, the Drake paper. After work- ing at the copy desk and at cub report- ing, Paul was advanced to assistant editor ot' the daily Tribune. Lately he was promoted to editor ot' the 'l'rib1me. Eleanor Burton. former student, daughter of Principal A. J. Burton. was a substitute teacher at East High, December 17. 1930. Martha Sellers, '29, was pledged to the Phi Sigma iota sorority at Drake. Wedding Bells Horsburgh-Madden On September 1, Ella T. Horsburgh '28, was united in marriage to Chester W.

Mary Caspeis Verse Published "Call Me Mary," a collection of 100 verses by Mary Caspe, former East High student, was published Charles F. Pye, secretary of the lowa State Teach- er 's Association. Several of Miss Uaspc 's poems have been published in K's column of the Tribune. ms THE QUILL Flivver Endurance ' ' Fifteen men on a dead man is chest. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.-" But in Ralph and Rolland Davis' case, the former being a graduate from East in 1930, it was 1600 pints of milk that helped them survive 2716 hours, from August lst to November 24th, on their Ford endurance drive. Eager for further education Ralph chose this way of earning money, and his brother needed further finances to start in business. Many of us think it uncomfortable rid- ing for a few hours, but these boys set a man endurance record by staying in solid confinement for 2000 hours. Being spurred on by a false statement that the old endurance record was 53,000 miles, Ralph and Rolland alternated driving until they had driven 47,138.3 miles. In reality the old record was only 13,457 .5 miles, set by a Marmon last year. But you may ask, "How about the flat tires 627' Yes, they are human. They had 11 Hat tires, but they had a four wheel jack under the car and a double set of emergency brakes that enabled them to stop one wheel and be pulled by the other. Then by walking along the side, when the car was moving slowly, the tire was changed. By this process a tire could be changed in about seven minutes. Once while passing over a triple track crossing, a train went across in front of them, and when attempting to back up, another train pulled on the track behind them-what would you do then? 'l'hat's exactly what they did. By quick down thinking they turned and went the center track to the next crossing. A smart chap in Fairfield, Iowa, backed out of a driveway in front of the endurance ear in an attempt to stop it, but when he noticed the endurance boys heading for him, he got cold feet and sped away. Did you ever run a car on water instead of oil? Accidentally drain- ing the oil by hitting a rut in the road, Ralph filled the crank case with water and ran ten miles to town. The day after they started their en- durance contest, their mother and Dad moved to Ankeny, Iowa, this town being one on the route on which they travelled. Here their mother handed their meals to them in a basket. The gas was handed to them in three gallon cans. Their biggest thrill came when a bandit car drew directly across the road in front of them. As they approached they saw a man at each end of the car, one with a pistol drawn. Thinking only of the record which would be ended by the stop, Ralph sped around the rear of the car without going off the wide shoulder, between the pavement and the ditch. To furnish entertainment they had a radio along with them. Ralph showed his modernistic thoughts by saying, H The best music came in after three o'clock in the morning from Hollywood. " During the entire trip, Ralph did not drink coffee nor did he smoke. This he attributed to his training in East High athletics. Near the end of the contest Ralph visited East High by driving around it. The boys are going to make a trip all over the United States to visit the Ford dealers of the country, in the original en- durance car. This trip is planned to cover one year and a half. Ralph expects to write a book on this endurance contest when he returns. We are sure that the perseverance at- tained in East High helped to accom- plish this feat. THE QUILL 57 E X C H A N G E Halford Brocicett "Pebbles', ,Iudged State's Best All Around Paper Returning from the eleventh annual Iowa High School Press Association con- vention held Friday and Saturday at Grinn ell, Pebbles representatives brought with them a lion 's share of the prizes awarded, being named the best all around paper in the state, taking first in the news editing contest and second with their humor column. Pebbles was awarded a beautifully engraved 12 inch loving cup by Sigma Delta Chi, national journalistic fra- ternity, for being the best all around paper in the state. MarshalltoWn's student newspaper was ranked better than the Blackhawk, Davenport, and The Central High Record, Sioux City, which received second and third places respec- tively. Papers from schools in every part of the state were entered for judg- ment of their qualities.-Pebbles, Mar- shalltown. Girls As Adventurers Wheii Lincoln High reporters inter- viewed Admiral Byrd, they discovered that girls prefer to fly over oceans. Ad- miral Byrd estimated that there was one girl to every hundred men who wished to accompany him on his North Pole trip. There was one girl to every two hundred men who wished to make the South Pole trip, but to his surprise, there were fifty girls to every man who wished to fly the Atlantic. The fair sex must have a fear of getting their feet cold. Jumping at conclusions is about the only mental exercise some people take.- Exchange. Tickets, Please After having a monopoly on their ticket taking job at football games for a number of years, Mr. Seevers and Mr. Gabrielson are now faced with a new source of competition. The men teachers of Fort Dodge High, are being enlisted to collect tickets at the high school foot- ball games. Mr. Gabrielson, in a private interview, expressed the opinion that the Fort Dodge faculty members were only in- creasing the number of unemployed. He also stated that they were also helping to prolong the economic depression and that they could not be good upstanding gate-keepers because of this fact. Mr. Seevers expressed the opinion that the Fort Dodgers were only copy-cats. "They should be original," he added at the end of the interview. Despite these woeful tales, we are of the opinion that Fort Dodge can not pro- duce two gatekeepers who have the dis- tinctive qualities of Mr. Seevers and Mr. Gabrielson. Just think of what an East High game would be without Mr. See- vers' mustachio. Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.--Helen Keller. Lincoln High Seeks Slogan Lincoln High School is now hunting for a school slogan. Lincoln is the only high school in Des Moines without a slogan. A committee consisting of one member from each senior home room is to have the final choice. Mr. James Sterrett, a former vice principal of Lincoln, has sug- gested Lincoln's athletic slogan, "Give all you are worth and play the game square." 58 THE It's Just an Old French Custom Many may look upon the school sav- ings plan as a purely American idea, but The Duster has discovered that thc plan was still sucking its thumb when Napoleon was showing France how to win wars. The plan was introduced to the ll. S. in 1882. During the past year, over bli26,000,000 was deposited in the school savings banks in the l'nited States. "But Ojyicer, I Didn't!" Imagine finding a parking tag in your lizzie some time after school! This is exactly what happened to the students of VVestinghonse Technical Night School in East Pittsburghi Most of the cars were tagged for violating a two hour parking ordinance. Such a raid at East would break the pocketbooks of many of our students. Here's One for Uur Scientists The science clubs at Thomas Jefferson High School gave a liquid air demonstra- tion recently. Among their many stunts performed by the aid of the liquid air, the most painful to the stomach was the sight of a. beautiful steak smashing to pieces. Several of the demonstrators placed their fingers into the liquid air, only to swear "Never again." Televox Demonstrated to Wash- ington High Pupils Mr. F. A. Wheewlei' ofthe Vklestinghouse Electrical Company demonstrated the Mechanical Televox in Cedar Rapids on November 26. Televox is outfitted as a bell-boy. He has green eyes, and his heart clicks simul- taneously with his eyes. Televox is di- rected by voice and whistles, each whistle being used for a different task. Several of the Washington High students had the honor of directing Tele- vox in his duties. QUILI.. Carl Sandburg, Poet, Lectures N. S. P. A. Convention Uarl Sandburg, noted poet and lec- turer, addressed the opening session of the National Scholastic Press Association recently. Sandburg talked mostly of poetry and songs. Ile said that children should be allowed to write poetry while they were still wearing bibs. He Was Paid lt is reported that the authorities of a city church, noted for elaborate in- terior decorations, had some repairs made by some painters. When the bill was presented, the treasurer refused to pay it unless it was itemized, and so the painter who touched up the decorations submitted the following statement: 1. For correcting the Ten Command- ments, embellishing Pontius Pilate, and putting new ribbons in his hair-:i?8.00. 2. Putting tail on St. Peter's rooster and mending his comb-?l42.00. 3.

It brought us such good cheer We would it were ten times a year. We got every kind of gift Which made our hair lift. Among those we most prize Were many un-wearable ties. And last butinot least We had such a feast, That we thought it was cruel To go back to school. QUILL The Wonders of Nature I never saw anything so wonderful as the phenomena which I witnessed last November when the cold spell first set in. I had a pan of water set back of our house. This pan was very thick, in fact, I often admired this particular pan be- cause of its being so heavy. As I said, this pan was full of water and it got very cold suddenly. The water all froze and I took this into the house to thaw out. It thawed and I discovered that the ice had changed the shape of this pan which I had thought so strong. VVhereas the bottom had been perfectly flat as a pan- cake before, now it was as curved as any sphere you can name before I count to ten. I now deduce that if I had waited any longer, the pan would have burst. I just mean to bring out that if you have an observing soul, you can get an educa- tion in spite of the extra things in East High. MARY N. HASTE. One Rainy Afternoon VVhile looking over some old QUILLS, I found that the idea of "panning" people was not at all original with this staff. For example: In the issue of March '28, Ray Gilbert was .being "razzed" for his spotless white silk track pants, Cwhich reminds us that Ray 's little brother, who is now in school, also wears white silk track pants. A family distinction?D ' and Charles Cilva for his immaculate hair, while in the January issue of the same year, "Peanuts" Levey got the old " Tee Hee" for his great size. Then way back in November, 1927, CYes, I have not been in school that longb when Miles Chinn had a brush on his lip, they even went so far as to put a cartoon in about it.

My Favorite Subject and Why Other people may like to remain in English, Math., or Latin, but as for me, give me Study Hall or give me vacation. Study Hall is the most instructive sub- ject I have come across in all my experi- ence as a pupil, student, or scholar. Think of the variety in the course. There are so many windows to look out of. If this fails, watch the people who go to the library. Great fun may be had by stamping your feet in time when some girl marches through. If somehow, how- ever, you are in the mood for the more serious things in life, count the electric lights in the ceiling. It takes great initiative to get the full benefit from Study Hall. A bright student can test the teacher 's endurance by seeing the number of times he can go to the pencil sharpener until she speaks to him. One student has been known to do this half the period. Another more used method of diverting one's self is shooting paper wads. Then, of course, we always have with us the inkwells to stuff with blotters. Distinction may be gained by getting a seat near the front of the room. Every- one can see more easily, and besides, the back of the room is usually jammed. This is my sincere belief, and I hope Mr. Wastebasket is on his vacation, so that I will see my paper in print in "The Pill. " I. EMMA NUTT. The Honor Roll The people who get tives for grades are to be complimented on their brilliancy. Some of our illustrious students claim they never received a tive, but this is nothing to brag of. It seems as if they would conceal the fact that they do such poor work. P Why is it that some students are satis- fied witha mere grade of one? It is plain that these people do not wish to get high grades, fours and fxves, or that they are mentally incompetent for doing Work that is required for earning a five. Some of our teachers are treacherous enough to give a few of our pupils ones, but this is not generally practiced as we pupils are too wise. The only student to receive five 5's was: Margaret Peck. Those receiving four 5's were: Noami Cook, Helen Hanson, Hugh Missildine, Esther Sipling, Josephine Walsh, Gen- evieve White, Claribel Sommerville. Those receiving three 5 's were : Alfred Mohler, Halford Brockctt, Ingeborg Hegna, Morris Steinway, Gertrude Libles, Josephine Allen. New Discovery A new field of eliminating your worst enemy was opened recently when Mr. Lyman 's class was studying the proper way to make bandages. He was demon- strating on his arm the intricacies of the tourniquet ta bandage which is tightened by turning a screw to check a How of blood.j A voice from the class inter- rupted this show by saying, "Now, why don 't you try that on your neck ? 'l Next time anyone is obnoxious to you, just say you know the latest way to make a bandage, but that you niust use his neck as a testing ground. If this does not ac- complish desired results, money will be refunded. Tllli Books! Books .' XVith the advent of new text books, we can now even expect the rest of the walls to he painted. Several stories have arisen concerning these texts, but fol- lowing its usual procedure, the "Pill" recounts only the best. One bright .boy asked Mr. Houser if all the new school books were always green. The sage of 113 replied that very few of them were ever red.

Teacher F aints The drama of a fainting teacher was enacted in 205 as a result of a query put to Miss Gabriel. She gave one of the sophomore classes a test on grammar. The papers were then traded and checked by the pupils themselves. Teacher read the answers in great haste right down the list in this way, "me, objective case, object of preposition to, they, nomi- native case, subject of verb were, etc., etc." NVhen she finished naturally quite exhausted from this effort, a hand was put up.

QU1 1, 1. 63 Football Voach Spencer's VVild Tigers, East High 's Girl football team, prancing be- hind marvelous interference, staged their last wild charge of the season Sat- urday and trampled Roosevelt 's eleven into a 27 to 0 defeat. More than 3,000 frantic football fans shouted and groaned throughout the startling fray, which stamped the Tigers as probably the greatest eleven the state has seen in a decade. From the start there was no doubt as to the outcome. East High worked right down the field from the opening kickoff. Like a flash the Tigers charged. CSallyj Smith flipped an eleven yard pass to K. Thompson, who sauntered the remaining eight yards untouched by Roosevelt and the game was won. It was only a few plays later that H. Hanson's long event- ful journey of eighty yards brought the second touchdown. One of the most spectacular passes of the day was J. Allen 's toss which VV. Edwards wrestled out of the hands of three opponents. The interception told the story, for East High intercepted five passes to one for Roosevelt. . The final score was East High Girls 27, Roosevelt Girls 0. East High's lineup was: Highland, left end. Garmon, left tackle. Chinn, left guard. Shaw, center. Conkling, right guard. Allen, J., right tackle. Hanson, II., right end. Smith, S., quarterback. Edwards, VV., left half. Thompson, K., right half.. Thompson, A., fullback.

Workouts come on the first and third Tuesday of the month. A proxy may be sent out for practice. 2. One package of cigarettes must be smoked every day. 3. A heavy meal must be eaten before each game. 4. Teachers are to allow the brilliant athletes to eat candy in each class. These rules have not yet been accepted but they are being considered by Mr. Augustine for next season. If these are accepted the students who follow them will be given a four ring monogram with- out further requirements. Fall of Hume 1.

The Arrival of the Quills, and Other Ravings of a Madman The QVILI, room was in an unusual hushg Mr. Stratton was working over some 10 B 's English papers, three or four people were trying to study, and the rest of the staff was either wandering around the halls or gazing vaguely out of the window. Hardly anyone talked. There was a strained nervous expression on everyone 's face. The Q1'n.Ls were sup- posed to be back from the printer by noon, but it was 3:00 o'clock then and no QVILLS were in sight. No wonder all was tense-the 3:15 bell and still no QI'Il.l,s. NVQ-ll. C'twas sadj the staff Csave for two or three faithfulsb dragged itself wearily homeward, much disappointed. Play practice called the faithful, leaving the editors and Mr. Stratton to bite their nails and rumple their hair alone. The time passed Coddly enoughj-4 :00 0'eloek--1:15-4 :30-Then, about 5 :00 olcloek, the office girl informed one of the Hunts" from the feature tree that they had arrived. NYhoops! Play practice was forgotten. The little "nut" rushed up stairs and spread the glad tidings. Needless to say there was a wild scramble of many feet, followed by little gasps of delight as the happy group surveyed their ttmaster- piece." As a matter of fact, everything was "jake" until the same "nut" dis- covered a joke about himself that he didn't seem to appreciate, and became quite aggravated. but he remembered there would soon be another edition of the QFILL and cheered up. Iiet's hope he didn't write anything that might cause him to get Heraeked. 3' The Dilemma Listen, my children, and you shall hear of an article which is called a space- filler. This article is one. Here is the reason for the writing of this paper. . The lines in our department had been counted and we lived in the ignorant bliss that we had about a page of material which we would not need. Vacation carrie and went. XVe returned to school and started to tix the dummy of our depart- ment. Instead of having a page in ex- cess of what was needed. we had one and a half pages of good blank paper. At tirst we toyed with the idea of leaving this space for autographs with the com- pliments of the Features department, but worthy adviser promptly put the veto on what we thought was a fair idea.. We quickly disbanded to write some- thing. It is in these hours of need that an inspiration refuses to come. Thou- sands of "clevcr" ideas passed through our minds, but each idea could be set aside with about two lines of writing. Of course. We finally Heome through."
