PUBLISHED » ™e SENIOR CLASS BCWCflSTLC " inb. DEDICATION A great National crisis has arisen, calling for loyalty, for patriotism, for sacrifice. These young men, good Americans and true, feeling the duty to Democracy and Humanity greater than to home and com- fort, have offered to make the Supreme Sacrifice. And so, not feeling that we are in any measure repaying them but only expressing our sincere gratitude, we dedi- cate this Rosennial, the result of the best effort of the class of nineteen hundred and eighteen, to them.

To whal purpose has the I " 1 1 i 1 l 1 Slates of America entered the War? Why has our country become a participant? Classmates, friends, Americans if your please, do yon realize how serious the situation really isi 1 Imperial Germany Tor Forty years has been straining each one of her many vasl resources thai she might successfully humble the world; that she mighl bring us to her feet. Just why she has not thus Far succeeded is only too well known. It is only because Prance, with her millions of young men, w it h courage that can never be surpassed, has been willing to bear the brunl of battle within her own borders Only because England, mighty and re- sourceful, proved herself a power invaluable to the safety of the world. These two nations alone have blocked the path of the Prussian eagle. But what has been the cost ? Hundreds of thousands of the flower of manhood have fallen on the blood-soaked soil of France and Belgium. Is it necessary to recall the fate of Belgium itself? So, the cruel eagle of Autocracy, soaring ever nearer, at last forced us into the fight. Of this we are certain. The man-power and the money-power of our Allies at last must become strained to the limit. Then who will fill the gap? For if it isn ' t filled America must face what Belgium already has beer, forced to accept. It is now up to America to repay the debt which we certainly owe to our Allies. How will we do it? There is only one way. There can be no other. We must dedicate our lives if necessary, but most assuredly our money and our labor to the support of the armies in the field. Let us free the world from the menace of Prussianism. Let us not be found wanting in American valor and self-sacrifice. And these two traits of Americanism will win the War. Shall we be American enough to display them? The men must go to the front. Only one thing is left Boys — young men — you are needed in the Boys ' Working Reserve ! Can you not spare five weeks of your sum- mer vacations to this service? Another way is open to those who would serve. Money may be raised by taxation and by loans. Will you loan your money to the Nation in its hour of need? Then invest it in Thrift Stamps! This service we can all do. Let us not be found wanting in any trait of Americanism. We must win the war!

" I cannot say — I will not say He is not dead — he is just away. " With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand He lias wandered into an unknown land. And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must he since he is there. And you — 0 yon, who the wildest yearn For the old time step and the glad return — Think ' of him faring on as dear In the love of There as the love of Here. Think of him still as the same, 1 say; He is not dead — he is just away. On the morning of April 25th, the entire High School assembled in the Study Hall, where a brief hut earnest and appropriate service was held in memory of Howard Sherry. The following persons paid fitting tribute to our friend and classmate in the short addresses which they delivered: Mrs. Isadore Wilson, Ernest Caine, Principal G. C. Bronsoii and Superintendent E. J. Llewelyn. 3Q5ENlHflL- 3 B Page thirty rj % r y pi 4 Pi 3 o pi H w " D M 3 0) C5 bJ3 cd Pi efi p| cn ? a 2 Wil !h P M cS C cS a 0! c 02 u o pq . to W , f» B O o Ph 01 CD I ' M Page tbirty-three THE JUNIORS! President Mildred Flemming Vice-President George Hernly Treasurer . William Waters Secretary Dorothy Shaffer The present Junior Class needs no introduction to the rest of the school. For three years we have been members of the High School. We now number fifty-three. Many of our former classmates have dropped out — many more have taken their places. We made our first appearance before the school when we took part in the enter- tainment given the Freshies last year. We have another year in the old school and now we are beginning to realize the value of our first years of work. Every Junior is a member of the Athletic Association. We are well represented in the Boys ' Work- ing Reserve. Juniors hold positions in all athletics and we are beginning to be a real power, among ourselves at least. We have artists, authors, musicians, singers, speakers and scholars among us. Why shouldn ' t we climb the road to fame with flying colors? And we have heart- ily supported The Reflector and The Rosen nial published by the present Senior Class. Too much credit cannot be given Miss Chambers for the success of the class in everything it has undertaken. She has always been ready to offer practical advice, and for this reason it is with deep regret that we leave her session room. It was not deemed necessary to organize the Junior Class this year until March 28, on which date the election of officers was held. Probably there will be no organ- ization at all for next year ' s Juniors, as this is becoming an obsolete custom. Well, we are started on the road to fame at last, for next vear we will be Seniors. All hail to the class of 1919! — M arc Waggener, ' 19.

We feel that due acknowledgment should be made of the invaluable services of the reportorial staff. Especially their work on The Reflector is to be commended, as they collected many news items which would not otherwise have been published. Page thirty-six Sop k ftv o sirs E.Y.H Page thirty-seven THE SOPHOMORES! Behold the illustrious Sophomores. The Sophomore (Mass of 1918 is, has been, and always will be the " all-star " so industrious, brilliant, lovable, and altogether perfect. From the day we entered this institution as verdant Freshmen we have been the " pride and joy " of the faculty. So glorious is our past, so promising our future, that we are certain of leav- ing easily distinguishable " feet-prints " on the sands of time, and a feeling of pride with the faculty. We have in our midst Walter Baugher and George Stout, two bright and shin- ing basketball stars; George Malkemus, a famous orator and debater, and Halcyon Tully, our Geometry shark. These are not all, for what would the Orchestra do with- out Thelma Rummel and Roy Gephart ? We shudder at the thought. And we refuse to let our minds dwell on what would become of Mr. Kampe ' s chorus if the Sopho- more " Melbas " and " Carusos " should withdraw. And most dreadful of all, what would old N. H. S. do without her Sophomore Class? Every teacher gives glowing reports of us, and wishes that the other classes would pattern after the diligent Sophomores. Miss Carson states that our girls are the best cooks she has ever worked with, while Mr. Morrow declares that the Sopho- more boys cannot be surpassed. This is only a sample of our work in every class. Our session room is especially lovely, for with Miss Duncan as our " guardian angel, " our home room is as a pleasant family. (If you don ' t believe this ask Miss Duncan.) Considering our past record and our high ambitions for the future, the graduat- ing class of 1920 bids fa ir to give to the world eighty-three famous men and women. — Kathryn Baker, ' 20. class of N. EL S. Never before in the history of the school has there been such a class • ft Pacr thirty-nine FRESHMAN HD5ENNIRL- k3tB Page forty CM ON tin o m U X H On i — i O U w H THE FRESHMEN! Honorable Faculty, Fellow-Students and the Public in General : Resolved, That the Graduating Class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-one, the present r IVn B ' s, is the brightest and foremost in everything. We offer the following statements as proof of our opening assertion. One year ago we entered old N. H. S. as record-breakers, the best looking, the most athletic and most intelligent heretofore seen, and to this day we can say with pride that our standard has never been lowered. Many of our high grades and honors are due to the excellent Faculty, whose ability in teaching us is equaled only by our aptness in learning. Time and space prohibit our mentioning all the members of this famous class, but let us call your attention to a few. We have Eugene Steele, better known as " Booty, " who is one of the three letter-men of the under classes and the star of the Little Giants and the Second Basketball teams. In girls ' athletics we possess the " Ogborn Twins, " whose ability as forwards is unequaled. Consider for a moment what our English class would be without Jay Weaver and Betty Swaim, whose very pens seemed tipped with eloquence. It requires little stretching of our imaginations to look forward to the day when great men will choose the books which bear the name of J. Weaver, or careful women will laugh thru the novels od E. J. Swaim. Think what the Art class would do without Julia Diehl and Florence Bufkin, whose pictures and works of art we feel sure will some day grace the Nation ' s studios and galleries. Now that the world is at war, our subjects have been changed so that we study those things which will be of practical use now as well as in the future when this class is out in the business world. We have war gardens started, we knit, and with very few exceptions every one in the class is a member of the Red Cross. Our class can also boast of having nearly a thousand dollars invested in Liberty Bonds and Thrift Stamps. Last but not least, in fact greatest, we are represented in Uncle Sam ' s great army fighting for world Democracy by Reuben Orner, who has been in the service for over a year. In conclusion we thank you for your attention and trust you will agree with us when we say our class is best. — Robert Smith, ' 2L ft 4 H Q SO 1L - 13 IB Page fprty-three THE SEVEN GATES The noise and rumble of the city ' s traf- fic seemed far away as 1 turned into the in- viting ' entrance of the park. To the east and south could be seen the glare of the city ' s lights upon the early summer sky. The shadow y walks led away thru ghostly trees into seeming obscurity. In silence I followed the walks, only the crunch of my steps upon the gravel mingling with the call of the night birds and the rustling of the trees. Away, somewhere in the dark- ness, I could hear the dripping of water. On and on I went and finally emerged upon the shores of a small lake. I abandoned my path and followed the edge of the water. I had gone but a short distance when I came upon an old man sitting alone upon a bench. There was something indescribably pathetic in his appearance. His dress was that of a sailor and his long white beard gleamed like marble in the shadow. As I approached he arose and regarded me sharply. I returned his gaze with interest. Never before had I seen a sailor of this type. I easily fell into conversation with him concerning nautical affairs, famous ships and their commanders, lie conversed with eagerness and grew confidential. I asked him why he had s eemed so pathetic and cast down when I approached. A sharp spasm of pain passed over his face. I could see that I had touched upon some chord in his mind that was unpleasant. After a long silence he said abruptly, " Have you ever heard of the Seven Gates! " Tho I had listened to sailors ' yarns in many ports, I had never heard of the Seven Gates. Me replied, " About twenty years ago I was first mate on the Dolphin. We did trading among the islands of the Pacific and were returning to port after a long voyage when Ave encountered a terrific gale that practic- al!} " finished the ship. We took to the boats and drifted for several days. " Our water supply was exhausted and there were only three left in my boat, the captain, the cook and myself, the others having died. Along about dusk we sighted a small island and made for it. When we came to the breakers we lost control and were upset. I awakened hours later and found myself on the shore close beside the captain. There was no sign of the cook. We made our way slowly toward a group of trees and there found a spring of cool water. ' ' Having decided to travel inland in the hope of finding some inhabitants, we set out. We soon came upon a road and were following it when we encountered a com- pany of Japanese soldiers and their Lord. We were made prisoners and taken to the home of this dignified official. Here we Page forty-tour wore fed and then informed that the Lord wished to sec us before we should be pill to death. " Immediately our hope which had risen collapsed. We signified that we were ready and were taken without delay into the pres- ence of the Lord. He and his attendants in- spected us curiously, lie said it had Long been his desire to entertain two guests of our nationality, lie had heard much about our country and the bravery and courage of its peoples, but had never had the joy of proving it. We were to show him whether or not we had as much courage as was re- puted. We were to die in a noble cause and the death of a Samuri. Was it not a privil- ege? We were divided in feeling between O m fear and curiosity, fear of dying in this place and curiosity as to the manner of our end. At this point a long box, made by crossing strips of iron, was brought in, followed by a servant carrying a large cage of ferocious rats. ' k The Lord continued: ' You will notice this box is separated into compartments by seven gates which are so cut that they fit around a human body. You, pointing to the captain, will be placed in tne box and these rats, which have been starved for seven days, will be placed into the lowest compartment which contains your feet. When they have devoured your feet they will be raised into the next section, and so on until you have bled to death or the rats reach your heart. Meanwhile your friend, looking at me, will stand over you with a sword and if the pain becomes too great vou may die suddenly. ' ' ' The captain and I looked at each other horror stricken. W T as it possible that such a fate awaited us! But we were not given long to deliberate. The captain was placed in the box which held him immovable; he could move neither hand nor foot. I was given a short, keen sword, the hilt of which was chained to a post set in the floor. It was just long enough to enable me to reach the captain ' s heart. Before the rats were let in the Lord spoke again: ' You will, I hope, not disappoint me concerning your courage. To my knowledge no one has been able to resist the pain alter the fifth gate was Lifted except, a prince of t he royal blood. ' Then turning to the servants he gave orders to admit the rats to tin; first section. " Blindly .1. watched them trooping thru the opening. It seemed a horrible dream. The room seemed to revolve faster and faster. 1 was recalled to consciousness by an exclamation of pleasure from the Lord. 1 saw the second gate lilted. As 1 looked at my friend the perspiration appeared on his face as if from a rain, i raised the b lade but his eyes forbade it. He would die hon- orably. His lips moved and i again raised it but his eyes blazed and I held it there, suspended m air, ready to drop at the sliglitest motion. When the third gate was raised he turned his eyes toward me and closed them. I raised the sword higher and it descended— and dropped to my side. 1 summoned my courage and again lifted the blade and thrust directely at the cap- tain ' s heart and again it dropped. 1 could not kill my friend even tho he was being- eaten alive. His face was in terrible agony, l lifted the biade once more and tnrust again. Everything whirled faster and fast- er and I knew no more. When 1 awoke it was broad daylight and I was in this very spot. How long it had been I did not know, nor how 1 had reached this place. My mind was a blank. I could remember nothing except the sight of my captain ' s face and that box. ' ' For nineteen years I have traveled to many ports in the world and on many ships, but I have never been able to forget. For nineteen years it has followed me and made my life miserable. Yesterday my ship en- tered this port and I came here to try to think and determine forever whether I was successful and did kill the captain or whether I left him to be eaten by the rats. Ican ' t remember! I can ' t remember! " The rustling of the trees, the call of the birds, the far-off roar of the traffic echoed back the old man ' s cry, " I can ' t remember! I can ' t remember ! ' ' — Marc G. Waggener, ' 19. 0 N Hi RL - 19(B Page forty-five " IT might havk bkkn Yes, they wore orphans. Loran and Paul W iley were suddenly thrusl upon the threshold ot ! life ;i! the ages ol ' twelve and ten years. No one cared Tor them enough to look alter their interesl and welfare in life. They look the responsibility of mak- ing their own living, a few weeks before their fal her breal lied his last in t heir dingy home in the tenement district of New York where vice and crime were at their height. These two little waifs managed, however, to live, or barely exist, from the few cents they made selling papers in the streets of the city. But when the rent for their home came due, they were unable to pay the necessary amount, and the grouch} 7 , rough- talking owner turned them away. The streets and alleys were the only thing left to them. At length Loran became separated from Paul and each failed in their efforts to lo- cate the other. One day while crossing the tanglement of street car tracks in his ef- forts to sell his papers, little Paul was caught between a street car and a big green automobile driven by a colored chauffeur and thrown to the pavement. When the big auto came to a stop, a white-headed old gentleman with a rather quick step, bound- ed out of the side door and picked up the little bunch of tattered rags that was roll- ed up in a heap just behind the car. Little Paul ' s face and body was severely cut and bruised. The old gentleman thoughtfully picked up the limp body and bundled it into the rear seat of the car. In a short time the big car had worked its way out of the crowded districts and was headed for the bachelor apartments of a multi-millionaire of New York. The big car seemed to be like a palace; like the ones he had heard of in fairy tales. The old gentleman, whom we shall know as Mr. Whitted, upon learning Paul ' s story of his father ' s recent death, decided to adopt the child as his own. Paul soon adapted himself to the conditions as best he could, but he could not become accustomed to the many servants who were ready to do as he would bid them. Time passed. Although Paul had everything that money could possibly buy, he was no! happy. All the money in the world could nol bring him happiness. One evening he (old his story to his father. So, wrapped up in his adopted son, the old gentleman immediately began to unravel the mystery. He employed many detectives and offered large rewards for information that would lead to his discovery. But his efforts were not rewarded in any way. However, Paul never gave up the idea that he would some day find his brother safe and sound. All this time Paul was attending a private school. He was very bright and eager to learn. At the graduation of his class he received the class honors. On his nineteenth birthday he entered Dartmouth College. He soon made many friends and the unanimous selection as class President was the result. He became very learned at French and German and was able to speak each one fluently. All this came to naught, for he soon fell in with the rougher element of the college and as a result he drank and played cards for money. He lost quite heavily and fell down in his standards of study. Traveling at this rate of speed he soon became a social outcast at the college. All this was more than his old father could stand, and to save the good name of his family from further abuse he promptly dis- inherited his son and refused to grant him any more money 7 to continue his course. The boy soon saw his mistake and tried to remedy his faults. But he was branded fo r life. For awhile he was able to keep up his expenses by his ability to read and tran- scribe French and German. But the de- mand for money was much greater than his supply and he was forced to leave col- lege. From the moment he shook the dust of the campus from his shoes, his life was one of continual wandering. At times he hardly had enough to eat and no permanent lodging. He now realized that his mistake was still greater than he had reasoned for before, and again determined to begin life anew. Wherever he drifted it seemed that everybody knew him and nobody wanted him around. He was trying to set himself RD5ENNIRL - 131B Page forty-six aright with 1 ho world but it would not Lei him. One disappointment followed another until he became despondent and lost all in- terest in life and his faith in human beings. Time passed and the next time we find Paul he is sitting on the express truck at the Canadian Pacific at Clenroy, Canada, carelessly sunning himself in the warm sunshine of that bright August morning. We have now seen the life of our future hero up to August L, 1915, and shall drop it at this point to take up a topic of mo- mentous importance not only to Paid but to the whole world in general. It was the great European War, momentarily brought about by a petty quarrel between the royal families of Europe. All this Paul read as he sat on that express truck in the little town of Glenroy, Canada. Austria had de- clared war on Servia and soon the whole of Europe was grasping at each other ' s throats in a mad frenzy. When England declared war on Ger- many it necessarily involved the country in which our futre hero was now wandering. When the call for volunteers came he en- listed in the Canadian army, not because of his patriotism hut more because the thread of adventure ran high in his mind. After he had been in training for a short time lie realized that here w T as a greater cause for his giving his life, than for the mere thought of adventure, and that to fight in the army of the world in its fight against militarism. He soon became a lieutenant because of his commanding appearance and extreme fearlessness. After several months ' training they em- barked at Halifax for an unknown port " over there. " They landed at Liverpool after an uneventful voyage. Here he un- derwent his final training in the course of about tw T o weeks. By this time the Ger- mans had rushed through Belgium and were pouring into France by the thousands. Troops were needed in great numbers and immediately. So Paul and his company of Canadians were slipped across the Channel under cover of darkness into sunny France. By the time Paul had reached the front line of trenches, the German drive had reached its zenith about twelve miles from the gates of Paris, and was slowly falling- back. After several weeks in the trenches, Paul received orders to report to the Amer- ican Ambulance Corps, lie was assigned to a truck that was carrying the wounded from the battlefield. Mere he saw all the horrors of war, mingled with its glory. While on duty he saw many towns that had been leveled to the ground by the op- posing gun-fire. Among them was a town that had been taken and retaken six times. There was nothing left of the town but heaps of brick. In one instance he noted a pile of broken stone and bricks that had been pounded to a dust. From one of the guards he learned that the Germans, when compelled to evacuate the town, had forced Belgian prisoners to pound the building material that remained in the town so that it could not be used in future building. In this same town he saw a mother who had given her six sons to the cause, but she w as still cheerful and was doing her bit to drive back the Hun by tilling a small garden be- tween the piles of ruins. Another w.oman had given her only son and had her daugh- ter carried off by the Germans. These are only a few of the many instances which he saw and heard. The next day he received orders to drive to a place about three miles distant to bring- back some wounded. The night was one of those kind that drenched one to. the skin, being a half rain and half sleet. The road was very slick and uneven and it w as not uncommon for one to become fast in a shell crater. The only light a driver had was that light which was given off by the burst- ing shells, as lights on the trucks would only serve as a target. Shells w T ere con- tinually whistling and bursting over head. Finally one of them reached its target and carried off the rear end of the ambulance, turned it over and rolled it into the side of the road. By the light of a bursting shell Paul could see another ambulance ap- proaching in the distance. While he w as waiting for the relief, he heard a deep groan of some one in great agony. . He took out his pocket flashlight and started in that di- rection. He soon found the prostrate form of a young French soldier lying in the hole made by a huge shell. His shoulder had been shot away and left his arm hanging by a few shreds of flesh. By this time the Page forty-seven oilier truck had arrived and had been hail ed by Pan] and slopped. ' The tWO men placed the wounded man on the stretcher and put him in 1 he ambulance. The load was very rough and at every nil in the road the wounded man would lei out a deep groan. Paul ' s heart w as touch- ed and he did everything in his power to aid the injured man and make him com- fortable. When they reached the hospital with him he was unconscious. Before they departed Paul received the assurance of the nurse in charge that she would let him know in a short time the condition of his friend. So Paul went hack to daily routine of work, eagerly watching the mails for the expectant letter. At last that happy mo- ment came, for when the mails were dis- tributed he received the following letter which he eagerly tore open and read: Dear friend: As requested I am sending you the information which you asked for con- cerning your soldier friend. He has been unconscious since Thursday last and is slowly sinking. He continually talks about some person whom I am unable to understand distinctly. He mutters about another person whom 1 afterwards made out from the rest of his talk to be the captain of a steam- ship plying between New York and Bordeaux. Pie says that he is not French but American, and that he was laken from New York when quite a small boy. Mis whole life seems more or less mystifying. lie cannot live long, for death is rapidly claiming the better pari of his life. Respectfully, M ISS X., Mead Nurse, L33rd Base Hospital Unit. When Paid had finished reading the letter, tears were trickling down his cheeks and in the next, moment lie gasped in one breath, " Loran! " He Luckily obtained a two days ' furlough to go to the hospital. When he arrived a strong breeze was bearing his Friend away to a place; where joy and happiness rules supreme. The pale face of the man stood out glaringly on the white sheets. His face twitched with agony and it was plain to be seen that he could not hold out much longer against such great odds. Finally he moved his last time, raised up and was dead. Although he uttered no audibile sound, it seemed to Paul as if he murmured " Paul. " As the nurse pulled the sheet over the dead man ' s face Paul told her his own little story about his brother who disappeared when a little boy in New York and how this one might have been his long lost brother. That evening the thought of his day ' s experiences were continually on his mind. But he lost all hope and sorrowfully mur- mured, " It might have been. " — Lee T. Pence. OUR KIND OF MAN The kind of man for you and me! He faces the w orld unflinchingly, And smiles as long as the wrong exists, With a knuckled faith and force like fists; He lives the life he is preaching of, And loves where most is the need of love; And a feeling still, with a grief half glad, That the bad are as good as the good are bad, He strikes straight out for the right — and be Is the kind of a man for you and me. — James Whit-comb Biley. Page forty-eight 1 SERVING It was a very warm evening in July. Alice stood on the porch by the moon-vines trying to catch a breath of the Tain! breeze thai was gently rustling the leaves. II was 1 all over with; the train had loft the little station a few minutes before, taking Joe with it. And she began to realize for the first time how lonesome she would he with- out him. She could not blame him for leaving the small town for broader fields and for re- ' fusing to live longer on his meager income. J She was proud of that, proud of his ambi- »J tion to become a great surgeon, but nowi that he was gone she knew that he was ] much more to her than just " the little boy J next door, " as he had always been in the) past. [ Several weeks passed before she heard! from him and finally a letter came from him, full of his first successes, small as yet but wonderful stepping stones for his fu- ture. She smiled over his enthusiasm and wrote him an encouraging letter. I But as time went on the letters became! fewer and lacked the friendiness the first ones had contained and took on a more dis- tant air until they ceased entirelv and be- 1 came mere notes now and then, fn spite of this Alice tried to be the same, writing him of the incidents that she thought would in- terest " him most. But one day a letter came from him say- ing that he had a commission as an army surgeon and that he was leaving for France. This was quite a shock to Alice, but she put aside her own feelings and thought only of the good he would do " over there. " Many months passed but no word of him came to her and at last she ceased thinking of him. One day an aunt came on a visit and being a great Red Cross worker, at last persuaded Alice to become a Red Cross nurse. It was several weeks before she was ready to go, but when the. time finallv came and the train was pulling out, Alice thought how useless her life had been and looked forward to a new and far different period of her life to open before her. She was to sail for Liverpool, where the party of which she was a member was to be organized. The doctor and ot her nurses made up a party of twenty, all anxious to start for France where they would join the rest of this contingent, part of it having gone ahead to prepare the way for the others. When the party at. last arrived in Prance they still had a great way to travel before reaching the firing line where their real service would begin. Alice saw no signs of war until they came to a small village of green and white houses. This little town had been fired on three times but no serious damage had been done. Here supplies were obtained and the journey resumed. Along the road were many destroyed farm houses and barns and over all there seemed to be a mysterious quiet which Alice could not account for. Not far away was a deserted trench half -filled with water and the crickets chirped mournfully around jjit. After a long delay in the arrival of -final orders, necessitating a long wait in an ■abandoned farm house, the party finally Igot the long expected word to move on, and [every one started out, anxious for the real work to begin. The nearer they came to the firing line the more unnerved Alice became. She tried to steady herself but when they came within hearing of the big guns she began to realize what war really meant and her fear of it. They finally arrived at the Red Cross Station. just behind the lines, and the inces- sant din and roar of the cannon was al- most unbearable. Here at last they were settled and the work began. All day long and far into the second day the stretcher bearers were busy bringing in the wounded. The nurses were kept busy bandaging and washing wounds. The house was becoming unbearable with the groans of the wounded and the odor of blood. Alice at last lost all of the fright she had felt the first night, but in its place came a great desire to get nearer the firing line and death and the knowledg of what death really was. The next day was not so full of things to do and for the first time since her start from ft mm Page forty-nine America she thoughl of Joe, ami wondered if she would meel him here while both of I hem were serving the same cause. The next week the lines moved forward, the Red Cross unit with them. This time they stopped at a village which had just been re- taken by the Allied forces. Not many peo- ple were left here, but these were jubilant over their rescue. However, a Long stay here was unnecessary, as the Allies were winning ground with very litt le effort. Finally Hie unit stopped at a small church and was compelled to again begin their work. The stretchers came in one after another until the wounded men filled the church and it was necessary to erect tents outside for many of them. Alice bandaged until she could hardly stand, but her heart was strong and, wrapped up in her work, she went on unheeding. At last the injured became so numerous as to re- quire more doctors and several were sent from another station and then it was that Alice saw Joe. Not the same Joe she had known but an older Joe, with his heart so full of his duty and so determined to save that Alice was left unrecognized. He was one of the men called from the other station and Alice saw and recognized him as he came in the door. But he did not seem so important to her as he would have in the past, for now her work came first. Then came the great shock. The lines that had been going forward so sucessfully were falling back. Something was wrong. No one knew what, but they all busied themselves With placing the wounded in ambulances and bearing them out of the danger .one. Alice never forgot, thai night. How they hurried and how worried she had Felt for the wounded, but she bravely obeyed orders, always conscious t hat Joe was near her, although he did not suspect. After everything was made ready they started back over t he road over which they had so triumphantly come. It seemed that the horses moved more slowly than ever be- Fore and thai the enemy gained on them, although the guns had ceased. But finally they arrived at the farmhouse where they had first settled and here began unloading. The next day Alice was one of a party sent out to investigate a food supply train. She noticed with great joy that Joe was also in the party. But suddenly as they were passing thru a small woods a great shell burst and Alice knew no more. When she opened her eyes she was in the farmhouse and Joe was sitting beside her. When he saw that she had regained con- sciousness he told her how surprised he had been to find that she was here with him and how he found how much he cared for her and asked to be forgiven for his negligence. She willingly forgave him, telling him that it was all necessary in serving. —Edith Koll. Page fifty Page fifty-one SUMMARY 1917-1918 SEASON Athletics in X. EL S. started with a rush at the beginning of the fall semester in l!H7. [t did not lake long to become thoroughly acquainted with our new coach, Mr. Allen. Al ' lci ' an interview with hiin enthusiasm ignited in every heart. There were many try-outs in fool hall and after a shorl lime a worthy team was selected. Alt I h its playing w as clean, scientific and well organized, it played in had luck. However, we know from the enthusiasm displayed, both by the team and stud- ent, body, that football will he a success here next year. Then basketball was taken up w ith a spirit that could not fail to place us on the winning list. So many tried out that for a long time il was difficult to choose a team that would best represent the school. But at last the choices were made and real work began. It is true that a little bad luck followed the team during the first of the season, but their efforts soon drove away the jinx. The spirit displayed at the games this year far exceeded our fondest expectations. Everyone turned out with the de- termination to win. And win we did. The girls also have developed some very strong teams. Girls ' basketball is not given the prominence that is given boys ' basketball. The season is not so long, but the girls say they certainly enjoy the game and expect great results. So Jet ' s give the teams next season more support than ever before. The more support the better results. Unusual interest was displayed this spring in baseball. Several teams were chosen and nearly every evening has seen an interesting game played at the Max- well park. Bad weather and the grip epidemic shattered all hopes of a strong ' Var- sity nine for this year. Indications point, however, to a more successful season next year. Page fifty-two " Football in the high schools of Indiana has come to be a survival of the fittest, " says Prof. Bronson. For some years N. H. S. was not among the survivors and was bemoaned as a dead one in football. But with the big changes in the faculty this year, Allen came to the rescue and put us afloat on the sea of football. At the first tryouts the whole Freshman class turned out and the upper classmen were also there in ' ' goodly numbers. ' ' But after Grant ' s momentum was ascertained " the gang " began to thin out and finally faded to about fifteen huskies. In each game the boys played hard, but the scoring machine got some sand in the gear box and refused to be run until " Wisey " broke it loose in the second Greenfield game. It was all like this: N. H. S. Alumni, 7; N. II. 8.. 0. Greenfield, 6; N. H. S., 0. Greenfield, 13; N. H. S., G. Elwood, 48; N. II. S., 0. Grant played a heavy game. Starbuck was ' ' awful ' ' rough. Beck ' s motto was, " Let me at ' em! " Pence was hard to get hold of. Mills blocked ' em all. Steele stayed with the ball. Capt. McDaniels gave them a merry chase. Craig, Ogle and Baugher were heavy hitters on the line. Miller ' s size made them all take notice. Spannuth grabbed at ' em but missed. Gullion couldn ' t even raise a sweat. Phil White found the game too hot. In conclusion we all hope that next year JST. H. S. will be a lively survivor in the sea of football and that she will sail thru in a dreadnaught instead of a raft.

Probably in no previous year has the Second Team played so important a part in the season ' s athletics. It is true that upon the strength and skill of the Second Team depends the success of the First Team. This year more men obtained a berth with the Seconds than in former years, thereby giv- ing the coach an opportunity to put the strongest possible team on the tloor. The strength of the Second Team was made evident by its vitcories over Cadiz, Kennard and Lewisville. However, the most important purpose of the Second Team is not to defeat the smaller towns around New Castle, but to teach the First Team to ngnt. We all admit that the Second Team, assisted by Coach Aleln, instilled the true victory spirit into the First Team. In addition to this much valuable material was developed for next year ' s team and a great deal of experience was gained by all the mem- bers of the Second Team.

Bush, Otis Bradway, Howard Richards, Alta Hiatt, Marjory Cox, Doris Lande, Joseph Burris and Arthur Grissom. Professor Kampe standing at piano. The local High School Orchestra is not an exceptionally large organization. Just why it is not even so large as similar organizations in even smaller schools, is not known. But that our Orchestra is well balanced in instrumentation and possesses a wide knowledge of music and harmony, is proved by its appearance on Class Day and at the Commencement exercises. Professor Kampe deserves very special mention for his untiring efforts to raise the standard of the Orchestra, and the results of his efforts are now noticeable in a pleasing degree. We are confident that the orchestra will accomplish great success next year and we certainly wish it a prosperous future. Page sixty-four GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB One of the most successful of Mr. Kanipo ' s many efforts in the past year lias been thai of the Girls ' Glee Club. II was organized under that uame at the begin- ning of Hie school year, and by the end of the first half was so crowded that it was necessary to limit the number of members tor the following- semester. Meeting every Thursday evening-, the young ladies assembled in the study hall and there tor several minutes engaged in the usual amount of gossip and individual voice culture. It is even said that, prior to the arrival of Prof. Kampe and roll call, the Winged Victory contemplated taking wings and flying out of reach of those many and various shrill voices. HoAvever, when real work commenced, the Glee Club accomplished much and is to lie commended. The Girls ' Glee Club is indeed an organ- Laztion of which the school may feel very proud. BOYS ' GLEE CLUB Last September, when the Glee Club was organized, very little interest was taken in it among the boys who should have been there. A few Freshies as first tenors, Cecil Colson was the lone second tenor, Lindly Cook being first bass and Charles Stevens, " the little boy with the big voice, " completed the role. Hardly enough for a good quartette. The first semester was taken up with easy songs by which Professor Kampe hoped to teach the boys the elementary ideas of good harmony. The second semester, however, witnessed a big increase in membership and a re- newed interest was taken, all of which was probably due to the rumor that the organ- ization would be decked out in Tuxedo costume and do the country up in style. Whatever the real reason may have been, it accomplished a wonderful purpose, for an excellent Glee Club was developed and it bids fair to do old New Castle " Hi " famous next year. PUBLIC SPEAKING Under the able guidance and direction of Miss Taylor, the Public Speaking Club made great headway this year. During the second six weeks ' period several periods each week were devoted to practice and trial speeches on a current question. At last in a contest held before the student-body, Marc Waggener, ' 19, was chosen as repre- sentative from N. H. S. to attend the District Contest at Rushville. Unfortunately the judges voted the Fortville and Richmond representatives to be a little better than our man, so we can only look forward to bigger and better results in Public Speak- ing next year. Page sixty-five HIGH SCHOOL DEPARTMENTS ENGLISH. Pour full years of work are offered in English Composition, Rhetoric and Liter- ature besides work in Public Speaking and Business English. A History of English and American Literature is taken, together with illustrative selections Irom each per- iod of Literature. T|„ ih-st six courses in English are required of all students. English II and VII] are elective, bu1 students are urged to take the lull four year course, as it ls our mother tongue. HISTORY. The work in History consists of the following courses :— Industrial History, Ancient History, Medieval and Modern History, American History, Civil Government and Vocational Guidance. , . This year, the work has been changed so that one semester, only, is devoted to the study of Ancient History. In the judgment of the school management, it is better to devote one semester to the study of The History of Industry than to devote an en- tire year to the study of Ancient History. Vocational Guidance has been added to the Course this year, and is studied m connection with Civil Government. In this work a thorough study is made of all the vocations open to young men and to young women. This study includes the follow- ing points:— Appren ticeship required to learn the work; danger to lite and health; chances of promotion in the same work or in other lines of activity; tenure of posi- tion- chances for individual growth; opportunity for amusement; probability of ac- cumulating a surplus for old age, etc The student may use all facts brought out in reports and studies made in determining the particular vocation for which he feels he is best fitted. . , Three full years of History work are offered, two years being required and one vear elective. Students are advised to take the full three year course. LANGUAGE. The Board of School Trustees unanimously voted to drop ilm study of German from our High School course of study, at a regular meeting held last June, thus being one of the first School Boards to take similar action in the State. The members of the Board deserve credit for their wise action in this matter. Provision was made for those who had begun the study of German to continue the work m order to graduate. However, there will be no German classes after this year. There are four years ' work offered in Latin, consisting of Beginners Latin, Caesar ' s Gallic Wars, Cicero ' s Orations and Letters, Vergil ' s Aenid, and Prose Com- position, extending throughout the course. Two full years are required for gradua- tion, and all students who have any ability in the subject are urged to take at least three full years. Students with marked ability are requested to take the full course. Page sixty-six MATHEMATICS. There is a course of three full years offered in Mathematics, besides Commercial Arithmetic. The course is divided as follows:- Algebra, three semesters; Plane Geometry, two semesters, and Solid Geometry, one semester. Each student is re- quired to take two semesters of Algebra, and two semesters of Plane Geometry. The third semester in Algebra and Solid Geometry are elective. Students with mathemat- ical ability are urged to take Solid Geometry and the third semester ii. Algebra, as most colleges require these for entrance. The Commercial Arithmetic is offered in the Commercial Department and it can not be substituted for any required credit in mathematics. Students who elect to take the special Commercial Course may be exempt either from the requirements in Mathematics or in Language, but not from both of these. In such case the cause must be sufficient to justify the Facutly in giving permission. SCIENCE. Courses in Botany, Agriculture, Agronomy (Gardening), Physics, and Chemistry are offered in Science. One full year of science study in the same science is required of all students, and students are urged to take at least two years. Students with un- usual ability are requested to take all of the science work offered. The courses in Agriculture and Agronomy are being offered for the first time this year. All science classes have had full enrollment this year. The students who study Agronomy are required to make a garden as a part of the work and this garden must pass inspection of the teacher. Before the garden -an be made, the plans for making the garden must be submitted and approved. This work has added very ma- terially to the interest in Gardening and many persons who have not before been in- terested in the sub jet are now making gardens and helping in these war times. One hundred and twenty pupils have taken this course this year. The work in Agricul- ture consists in a thorough study of the elements of agriculture, with frequent labora- tory tests, field excursions, and live stock inspections. This work will be very help- fid to the students who elected to take it. COMMERCIAL SUBJECTS. The Commercial Department was organized and equipped las; fall and has al- ready become a very popular department among the students. Tt has long been known that students must be taught to ' ' make a living " as well as to be taught to " live. " It was with this thought that this Department was organized. Bookkeeping, Stenography, Typewriting, Commercial Law, Business English, Commercial Georgraphy, Commercial Arithmetic, Salesmanship, Business Correspon- dence and Penmanship are offered in this Department. Students graduating with a Commercial Diploma must have at least ei ght full credits in the Commercial Depart- ment, including two credits in Bookkeeping, two in Stenography, and one in Type- writing. The other three credits may be chosen from the subjects offered. Students are urged to take as many courses as possible from those offered. One, two, or three year Commercial Certificates, as well as four year Commer- cial Diplomas, are granted to students in this Department. This course will be a big drawing card for our High School and will cause a much larger enrollment. Page sixty-seven MINOR ELECTIVES. The " minor electives " indicated below, arc offered with the requirements indi- cated in each. 1. MUSIC. Work is offered in Rudiments, Elementary Harmony, Advanced Harmony, Music Appreciation, Music History, Orchestra, Boys ' Glee Club, Girls ' (dee Clul), and Mixed Chorus. All students must have a thorough knowledge of the Rudi- ments of Music. The work in Orchestra, (dee Clubs and ( ' lionises, and all advanced courses are elective, according to ability and on recommendation of the Supervisor of M usic. 2. DRAWING. ' A total of eighl courses in tree-hand drawing and four courses in mechanical drawing are offered. Students must have at least the first two courses in free hand or mechanical drawing. The advanced courses are elective and privilege of election depends on natural or acquired ability and on recommendation of the Supervisor or Teacher. 3. MANUAL TRAINING. A student with ability may make as many as three credits in Manual Training, the work including lathe work, cabinet making, etc. All boys must have at least eight-tenths ' of one credit in the same, the purpose ' being to give boys a working knowledge of tools, their care and uses. Many boys take more than the minimum amount of work required. The Manual Training Shop is a very busy place at all times in the day. 4. HOUSEHOLD ARTS. All girls are required to have at least one and six- tenths credits in Household Arts— the same to be divided equally between Sewing, Textiles, etc., and Cooking, House Management, etc Advanced courses are offered so that girls with ability may take as much as four full credits, with the consent and ad- vice of the teacher. 5. PUBLIC SPEAKING. All students with probable ability in Public Speak- ing are urged to take some of the courses offered in this subject. The courses offered are always determined by the demand and need of the school. Oratory, Elocution, Discussion, Debating, and Dramatic Interpretation will be offered next year, and some of these were offered this year. CONCLUSION. With courses being offered as given above, it will be evident to any interested taxpayer or friend of the school that the NEW CASTLE HIGH SCHOOL will soon stand at the top of the list of High Schools of the State. The one plan of the manage- ment is to make the course so vital and so practical that every child in the City may be helped by attending.

The problems winch con- front ns now ' are of the greatest importance, and if solved correctly, will he the found- ation of the future. We have inherited the excellent qualities of preceding generations. In pur make- up we have the courtesy, hospitality, sunny humor and those indefinable virtues o the Southlands, and the deep religions feeling, great moral courage and something ol the Yankee business efficiency and progress of the New Englanders. So why can we not accomplish as much and even more than our ancestors ' ? To this rich inheritance we have added four years in New Castle High School, which endeavors to make of the individual a well rounded, well developed citizen. The lessons and ideals explained to us have been such as to give us that training which will enable us to meet the world at large in its demands. Our school lias enabled us to think clearly, to believe in human nature and to rely upon ourselves. A High School improves any student mentally, morally and spiritually, and, more than that, it helps him to find himself. The course given shows the student his strength and weakness and reveals to him the desire to develop his abilities tor the service of mankind as did our ancestors. They did not rely on others to do then- work Their character was made up in the stern school of necessity. Ihey were strong, vigorous, stalwart men and women who pointed civilization upward. Ihey were the products of self-help. They were not pushed or boosted, hut they fought every inch of the way up to their own position. The stalwarts, the men of iron, of stamina and of grit, are self-made. They are oreat men because they have been great conquerors of difficulties, supreme masters of difficult situations. They have acquired the strength with which they have over- come; so we must do the same. We must confront many hardships, and the one who tries to evade these testing times is the one who is pursuing the road to failure We must confront these tasks with a determined mind. These are the times when charac- ters are shown, when the demands are such as to show wha t manner of citizens we are. All of the great men of the past generations had to face the severest hardships, but with a strong will, determination, and with no thought except " success, they strove hard against those things which blocked their way, and went forward and sowed possibilities which we have been privileged to reap We must take the same attitude toward our own environments and opportunities, if we shall excell. We as students, have our weaknesses, but we must put every ounce of energy we have to overcome these. We must not let such things as stupidity weakness or laziness hinder us in our great drive, but must trample them down under our feet as we climb ever upward. Therefore, Class of nineteen hundred and eighteen, my hope is that every grad- uate will show that he has received from this school the instructions and influences which have developed those qualities that are summed up in these words— Gentle- men, Patriots, and Christians; gentlemen who are courteous and will not see anything but courtesy displayed in our presence; patriots who serve their country with their utmost abilities in times of peace as well as in war; Christians who love the Lord our God, with our whole heart, and our neighbors as ourselves. . ' — Ernest Came. - - an Page seventy CLASS DAY ORATION AMERICANISM (By Marcella Tally.) The essential defmation of Americanism is given in four great historical docu- ments, making progressive epochs in our National history. The Declaration of Inde- pendence, in which we proclaimed the principles by which we justified our independ- ence of European domination — The Declaration which voiced the belief in men ' s right to the self-responsible making of their laws; which proclaimed America ' s right to try out democracy. The second is President Monroe ' s message which announced the right of the peoples in this hemisphere to pursue their political destinies without interference from Oriental powers. This doctrine proclaimed the success of the ex- periment upon democracy. It proclaimed again the acceptance of responsibility, no longer for experiment, but for huge expansion. The third great advance toward true Americanism is Lincoln ' s memorial address at Gettysburg. In this the right of Amer- icans to their own continents is affirmed to be inalienably democratic. Fourth is our own President ' s message asserting the value of democracy to the whole territorial world and the right to it of the entire human race. Out of each of these documents may be chosen phrases which serve as the texts of the fuller meaning. " All men are created equal " ; " inalienable rights " ; " life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. " Our doctrines have expanded, our ideals have become broader. They are not confined to our own borders, but are reaching out to the whole world. The experimental stage of American democracy is past and the great aim of our Nation today is that " government of the people, for the people, and by the people " shall not perish from the earth. America faces the world today, conscious that she has, to the highest degree in her power, been true to the ideals of a democracy. She recognizes no caste, the civic man is of no preferred complexion ; this is now a fixed article in our American faith in a " government of the people. " The heart of Ameri- canism today is faith in civic nobility — in civic rights of all nature which we call human. Americanism cannot be for " all men " in any lesser sense than for " men of all kindreds. " New conditions confront us; new perils menace us, the destinies of numerous p eoples are in the balance. If they move toward liberty, it will he liberty which is the ideal of America; if they recede they return to hereditary regimes and absolutism. America is watched today as never before. The political, social, and civil happenings all over our land are watched with intense anxiety. Nations are wondering if our Americanism will stand the test; what is to be the outcome of republican and demo- cratic institutions. If we fully understood how the world is depending on our coun- try, our patriotism would hecome more intense, we should be more zealous for the welfare of our republic. The safety of the republic and of democracy lies in the vigilant and active patriotism of the American people. The United States is called upon once more to stand for its faith, for its Ameri- canism, not only to stand for it, but to expand the meaning of that faith. We h ave done both, and the President has given their meaning in this phrase, " The world must be made safe for democracy; its peace must be planted upon tested foundations of political liberty. " The world. Is not this expansion? Democratic and autocratic gov- ernments can not exist together on our globe. It has become too small for that. De- mocracy defies the stronghold of absolutism; she no longer claims the rights to inde- pendence, but asks the supremacy over fields and all polities. She now claims for her- self no lesser thing than the whole world. This new Declaration is accompanied by a restatement of the old. The " tested L- 1911 Page seventy-one foundation of political liberty refers us to the trial w inch has been given our faith and shows I hat we have come ou1 victorious and that the self -confidence of the authors of the Declaration has been justified in their posterity. We are lighting to liberate the peoples of the world, " the German people included: " ' The people ol antagonistic lauds are not excluded, lor t hat would be a step away from our ideal rather than a step nearer. Under the broader interpretation ol our Americanism, the word people must include not merely men of all classes hut men of all polities, because; there is but one true form of the truly human polity, and that is the democratic form. It. is in the faith that underlies this, that we are lighting, for it is the core of Americanism. We are lighting, yet we are eagerly waiting for tne German people to give souk; sign of response. This is a war, not with people, but with institutions. Kour great documents have established the definition of Americanism. All have been issued upon the occasion of great wars, so it is obvious that Americanism is no pacifist faith. America is not a country of pacifists. Our history proves the contrary. Our conscientious objections to certain shameful tilings, like injustice, and dishonor, and tyranny, and cruelty, are stronger than our conscientious objections to lighting. But our National policy is averse to war, and our National institutions are not in favor of its sudden declaration or swift prosecution. We are a pacific nation of fighting men. What, then, was it that caused us to enter this conflict? It was the feeling that the very existence of this war was a crime against humanity, that it need not and ought not to have been begun, that upon us as a nation lay the duty of entering the strife that we might help to bring it to the only end that will be a finality. We en- tered the war, not for the sake of war, but for the sake of humanity. An incentive for entra nce was our Americanism, our belief in the right of free people, however small and weak, to maintain their own forms of government. The United States, having grown to a world power, must either uphold every- where the principle upon which it had been founded and made great, or sink into ttie state of a helpless parasite. Its sister repu blics would have shared the same fate and autocracy would hold sway over the nations of the world. The list of crimes and atrocities ordered in this war by that mysterious and awful power that rules the Ger- man people is too long to be repeated. The levying of unlawful tribute from captured cities and villages; the use of old men, women, and children as a screen for advancing troops; the burning and destruction of entire towns; the poisoning of wells; the reck- less and needless destruction of priceless monuments of art, like the Cathedral of Rheims; the bombardment of hospitals and the sinking of hospital ships with their helpless and suffering company — all these, and many other infamies committed made the heart of America hot and angry against the power which devised and commanded such brutality. True, they were not crimes directed against the United States. They did not injure our material interests. They injured the world in which we have to live. They were outrages against humanity itself. Could we uphold our standards of Americanism ? could we be true to our inherent love of a democracy, and not take a stand against such a power! No. And we shall fight until the three terms of real peace — restitution, reparation, guarantees — for which we have come to fight, have been won. The American faith is far more profound than the autocrats believe — it is a faith that has survived despite a century of trial. Yet today, it is unshaken and serene, confident and hopeful. Americanism is a faith that men have died for, and that men are dying for today. Let us " stand fast " to our ideals that autocracy may yield its place to democracy, that every scrap of Hohenzollern may be destroyed to- day so there will be no fresh militarism tomorrow. And may there be in every heart American patriotism active, which shows itself in deed and sacrifice; patriotism public-spirited — patriotism intense, which speaks out in noble pride, " I am an American.

" Having completed our New York contract, we started on our western tour. Everything was ready and 1 found myself comfortably seated on the train, headed for Chicago " . The train made its first stop at a little town called Altoona. While the train was getting water 1 went into the station to get a magazine, and whom did I find running the place but my old classmate, Basil Beeson. Basil told me that Herman Redd and Lee Pence left New Castle the same time he did and that Her- man was driving a taxi for the Belmont Taxi Co. in Pittsburgh, and that Lee was a reporter for the Altoona Chatter. The train was palling out, so I hid Basil good-bye and started on. As 1 glanced over the American magazine I noticed an article entitled " Tully ' s Travels, " and as 1 read on I found the author to be Marcella Tully. About this time 1 heard a voice calling, " Last call for supper. Last call for supper. ' ' I felt- rather hungry, so 1 went into the dining ear and here I found another surprise. Archie Hill was trying to feed the people and he seemed to be enjoying life immensely. After devouring the menu I went into the smoker, where I picked up a New York Post that was lying on the seat. I caught the headline, " Notorious Bandit Caught, " and as I read on 1 found that it was no other than my classmate, Blinky Bill, alias William Craig. This was sure a blow to me. After enjoying a smoke I went into the Pullman car to get a little sleep before arriving in Chicago. Here I found Cecil Colson in charge of the snore shelves of the Pullman car. After arriving in Chicago I went to the Morrison Hotel to get a room for my stay in the city. I had the honor of having Edgar Mills usher me to my room, as he was representing the hotel as a bell hop. Edgar told me that three other members of the ' 18 class were staying at the hotel. When I asked who they might be, he replied that Ernest Caine had charge of the automobile show which was to be held during the next week, Susan Morris was with the Boston Grand Opera Co. which was playing at the Blackstone thearte, and Josephine Hosier was president of the W. C. T. U., which organization was holding its convention at the hotel that week. One evening Susan and I went to the Morrison Terrace after the show to get something to eat. After we were through we went up on the balcony to look down on the gay parties that were there. As we were view- ing the place we noticed a very tall chap who had been overcome with champagne and was in a very wobbly condition and was trying to entertain some chorus girls. The entertainer turned out to be Kenneth Cone Id. This sure did bring back memories of the old parties that we gave while in school. We went down to see if Lum needed any help and when we got there we found another member of our gallant class hidden be- hind several empty bottles and other debris, who turned out to be James Steele. After getting them away from the rest of the party I put them into a taxi and was going to take them to their apartments, but on our way out we were halted by a motorcycle cop. When we got out to try to fix things up we were face to face with Jay Rhoten, who informed us that we had been speeding, and we were soon marching to the police station. I awoke the next morning and had the morning paper brought to me to see what had been published, but my attentions were turned to the headlines of the paper, which read like this: " Bush for Mayor on the Socialist Ticket. " At last Sylvan had placed Socialism on the map. I noticed another article where Katherine Kessel had made a suffrage speech in which she said she thought that some one should put through a bill making Tealess day a national institution. Just think, she said, the sugar it would save and how it would help the needy sellers of Bronxes and Orange Blossoms. I read on down through the article and I noticed where Zola Harvey, the vice-presi- dent of the Woman ' s Working Reserve, had suggested a Bazaarless day. She said that a holiday of the kind would save a great amount of energy, patience, sp ' ice and money Page seventy-five to say nothing of relieving the terrific congestion in the sanitariums. After staying in Chicago for three months we started for Denver, Colorado, The train was com- pelled to stop al a little milk station in Iowa called Creston. While (lie air-brakes were being repaired I thoughl I would gel oil the train and stroll aboul the station. As I was walking up the platform I noticed a very familiar face. Arthur Grissom was juggling milk cans from one wagon to another, i w as somewhat surprised w hen he told me thai he and Mary Archibald were married and were in the creamery business. Arthur also told me thai Thelrna Stevens and lithe! Magee were engaged in the lish business in Marshall, Iow a. After a little dial I returned to where the train crew was working on the air brakes. While I slood idly watching, I was given a gentle lap upon the shoulder, and as I turned I looked into the face of Josephine Siniius. I was amazed to learn thai she was riding on the same train with me and that she was on her way home in Lincoln, Nebraska, after spending Four years in China in Mission- ary work. The repairs were soon made and we got aboard the train and were on our way. I n the eon versa 1 ion that I ' ol lowed, Josephine told me that she met several of our classmates while touring the Orient. While attending a meeting of the M Lssionary so- ciety in Peking she met Fern Butler and Edith Roll, who were making a study of the habits of the Shanktahiena, a very vicious member of the monkey family. She said that Edward Kiddy had become rich by illegal business methods and after marrying Amy Day was making a tour of China and the Orient with an idea of rinding a loca- tion tor a factory where he might manufacture pig-tails for the bald-headed China- men. At length we arrived at Lincoln and -Josephine here made her departure. As the train pulled out of Lincoln I noticed that the hour was late, so I retired to my berth. Late the next morning I arrived in Denver. From the station I took a cab to t he Planters Hotel and soon arranged for a stay there. It was during the second per- formance that the Cresca theatre was destroyed by fire, and, in addition to all our property being lost, several members of our cast were injured. The next morning I went to the hospital where the injured members of the east had been taken after the lire, and there found them receiving the best of care and attention from Opal Frazier and Marguerite Koons, the attending nurses. After returning to the hotel I was call- ed to the office of our manager, as he said that two representatives of costume firms were there to submit bids for the furnishing of new costumes for our company, and whom did I find in the office but two members of the class of ' 18. Reva Thompson was representing Heller-Brown, the famous costume designers, and Homer Strong, who had made many appearances in style shows and had gained a position as a representa- tive of Boche Brothers, famous gents ' furnishings. Reva also said that the Hansard sisters and Nina Hill had charge of the rest rooms in Jeanettes and Margaret ' s estab- lishment. As it would be at least three weeks before we could continue our engage- ment, I thought I would have time to make a visit to New Castle. But noticing that Howard Wise was at Enid, Oklahoma, in training to punch the heavyweight cham- pionship out of Jess Willard in the prize fi ght which was scheduled to take place in Guthrie the following month, I decided to pay him a visit. While visiting Howard I met George Neff, who was there getting pictures and dope on the big fight for the next issue of the Police Gazette. George was now the editor of this noted piece of literature. After spending two days with Howard and George, I started for New Castle. After a long and tiresome journey I arrived at my destination. From the station I immediately went to the Rose City Pharmacy. There I found Edna Burgess and Kathryn Hamilton still in the business of luring the younger members of N. LT. S. into this resting place of the school so they could buy them drinks. While talking to them Marion Chapman came in. Marion had became a successful follower of the medi- cal trade. Even now he was obtaining a fresh supply of chloroform to be used on his future victims in order that he might make a more complete study of the victims ' pocketbooks before turning the said victims loose. They also told me that Catherine Conduitt, who had made such a hit as a drug saleslady in the Class Play, " The For- RD5ENlllflL - t9lB Page seventy-six tune Hunter, " was still in the business and had been in the store a few minutes before taking several orders Tor drug supplies. I left the store and started up Broad streel and as I was walking along I noticed a poster in a window which informed me thai Alia Iliad was to he in (he city with her famous orchestra. She was wilh the Bed- path Chautauqua. I met Esler Miller coming out of Cooper ' s book store. Hetoldm that he and Margaret Gough were married and they had purchased the hook store He said that Evangeline Gibson, who was office girl at the High School building, had telephoned him to bring some books that Mi ' . Llewelyn had ordered, and lie had started to deliver them. After spending three weeks here renewing old acquaint- ances and friendships, I was at last compelled to return to Denver, again to take up my profession. Signe 1 : ELBERT HAT S. CLASS SONG, 1918 When ' tis time to say adieu, We ' ll leave all friends, no foe; And ever to our school be true, As down life ' s stream we row. Our hopes will lead us onward, To heights we may attain ; We ' ll ne ' er forget our comrades, Nor this, our class refrain. Chorus : Class eighteen, class eighteen, Our work in school is done, But future years will show to us That life had just begun; Class eighteen, class eighteen, We salute thee, banner true, Purple is royal, and white is pure, For thee we dare and do. Life, sometimes, may seem all strife. Of this we have no fears; We ' ll make it ours to win the fight For fame in future years. No gifts can be more welcome, Than those we here receive; No years can be more happy, Than those which now we leave. Finis. • — Alta G. Hiatt.

' Twas then, of course, we chose our husky Lee To pilot our frail boat thru stormy seas. To help him hold the wheel in safety one Marcella took the stand by common vote And served her time. The records then were placed into the hands Of Marguerite Koons. George Neff gave bond and swore his word was good In writing checks and counting up the pennies; Hence he was treasurer.

We ' ve tried our hand at getting in the public eye And to that end have put out this big year book, And some Reflectors, too. Then our histrionic skill was given test, And true " struts " and " frets " we showed ourselves, The play ? It was ' ' The Fortune Hunter.

The unusual sale of tickets assured the management of the play thai if would be a huge financial success, easily enabling the class to pay for its Liberty Bond. The very large and enthusiastic audiences gave sufficient evidence that " The Fortune Hunter " was one of the best home-talent productions ever seen in New Castle. James Steele as Nat Duncan, Edward Kiddy as Harry Kellogg, Nat ' s Friend and financial backer, Arthur Grissom as Sam Graham, Edna Burgess as Betty Graham, and Susan Morris as Josie Lockwood, deserve more than ordinary mentionfor t he ex- cellent manner in which they played the Leading roles. In the first act we are introduced to Nat Duncan, a young college man, out of luck, almost penniless and unable to hold a position because of his dislike for work. His old friend, Harry Kellogg, a rising young financier, suggests that Nat marry some small-town heiress as the only way out of the difficulty. After much argument Nat decides to try this rather unusual plan. The second scene shows us the very much dilapidated and run-down drug store or Sam Graham, in Radville, Pa. Sam, at one time wealthy, had generously loaned money on bad security until he was lacking funds not only to keep his store ' stocked but even to feed and clothe Ids daughter Betty. Graham is also something of an in- ventor. Nat, coming to Radville, first establishes himself as a most profound student and then applies for work in Graham ' s store. He at last obtains the position, altho he is warned that he may never see his wages. In this act Nat attempts to offer some friendly advice to Betty, but is rebuked by her. In act three we find that the Fortune Hunter has at last found Ids trade. The drug store, due to his ability and energy, i s one of the best in the state. However, Nat has spent all the money advanced him by Kellogg in paying old Graham ' s debts and m sending Betty, in whom he has taken a slight interest, to school. All this time Nat has been laying the net to catch the hand, and fortune, of Josie Lockwood. So well has he succeeded that she proposes to him and he is forced to accept. Then he so manages the sale of on e of Graham ' s inventions that Graham is made wealthy once more and Nat finds that he not only does not care enough for Josie to marry her but feels that he is wronging her, he having started out to marry her for her money ' Then Betty comes home from school. So great is the change in the druggist ' s little girl that Nat almost loses his head. At last he becomes madly in love with her. Betty, while at college, has become a most beautiful young woman, and after realizing that she owes it all to Nat, falls in love with him. In act four we find Angle and Betty sitting in a swing just outside the Graham home. Betty is deeply pained when she learns of the engagement between Nat and Josie, but says nothing to indicate it to Angle. Then Nat comes in, immediately followed by Josie, her father and Roland Barnett, a clerk in Lockwood ' s bank. Ro- land, also after the Lockwood fortune, believes Nat to be an escaped bank embezzler rom New York, and accused him of the crime. Nat, seeing his opportunity, refuses to deny the accusation. Josie herself breaks the engagement she has made and thus leaves Nat and Betty to live happily ever after.

Page eighty-eight Page eighty-nine EQITORIRLS In summing up our four years in High School, may i1 be said thai the Class of nineteen hundred and eighteen has enjoyed a degree of success in scholarship and achievement rarely, if ever equaled by any previous class. With very Few misfor- tunes of any kind, but with the spirit of co-operation and co-ordination predominating wo have readied the highest ideals of our school lives. True, there may have been times when we felt the struggle to be extremely difficult, but nevertheless a continued application of strength and industry has gi ven us the lead. In looking back we notice that our experiences have not differed considerably from those of any other class. Practically the same routine of study has been follow- ed. But we believe that few previous classes have worked for the interests of the school as a whole as has ours. In leaving we do not attempt to forget our High School life or the many interesting incidents connected with it. Too many pleasant mem- ories remind us of the time spent in this institution. It is indeed the earnest and sin- cere hope of every member of the Class of nineteen hundred and eighteen that the student-body of New Castle High School will realize the debt it owes to this commun- ity, thereby endeavoring in every possible manner to guard jealously the reputation and character of the school and always striving to make it better. This year the class has practiced the utmost economy, thus keeping in the spirit of the time. Economy in expenditures, economy in Commencement activities and wisdom in investments. We urge . that every succeeding class, at least during the length of the War, will follow our lead in this respect. But after enjoying for four years such pleasures, such success, such achieve- ment, we are at last, on the very eve of our supreme attainment, forced to accept a sorrow, a loss, too great for human words to express. One of us, young, full of life, ever popular and so generous and jolly that he held the esteem and friendship not only of his classmates, but of the entire city, has been called by the greatest Master. That such a situation should occur, has occured, in our very midst, at such a time, can hardly yet be realized. He seems to still be with us, in memory at least. Nor do we wash to forget, even for an instant. It has been Cod ' s will and therefore must be done, altho we, mortals that we are, fail to understand. fed RD5ENMIHL - 1H1B Page ninety J ust w hat has been gained by the edu cation we have spent so many years to ac quire? This is indeed a ■big question; the answers to it arc so numerous and far reaching that it is impossible to attempt to name or describe all of them. However, wo-believe that three results stand forth without doubt our view of life has been ma- terially increased and broadened — we have developed an individual personality — we have learned to be more truly American. It is said that the really great statesmen see both sides of the questions which they are called upon to discuss. So the really great citizen must be educated to the point that he may see both sides of the problems which he may meet, solving them as they arise. Thus we are made to realize th is important phase of citizenship, by the education gained in the public schools. The personality of Grant and Lincoln, in fact of all our leaders of men, probably was more responsible for their " reatness than any power of speech or command of English which they may have possessed. A man may be judged by his poise and the manner in which he handles himself in all situations. His personality will win fame for him when everything else fails. So we are given this unusual advantage of at- tending the public schools and acquiring an education, altho it is as yet elementary. Then, at last our education has made us American in spirit as well as in reality. To be capable of realizing American ideals, American liberty and American de- mocracy, is to be truly American. When we have realized these things, and only then, may we declare ourselves worthy of citizenship under the Stars and Stripes. And what factor tends to teach us that pride of country so much as the public schools! These three results of education are not all that might be mentioned. We be- lieve they are the most important, however. There is just this to be kept in mind — the more eduaction we may acquire, the farther we go in educational institutions of worth, the better will be our Americanism, the broader will be our views of life, the more influential and commanding our personality.

Jimmie Steele, in Chemistry: " Is hy drochloric acid a base? " After reading a sentence in shorthand, Margaret Ray remarked thai the sentence did not sound right. Whereupon Prof. Rockhill answered: " Well, Margaret, you know this is no course in music. " E. Mills: " 1 don ' t know what to do wit h my ' weak ' -end. Herb. Conner: " Well, why don ' t you ])iit your hat on it ? " IN PURSUIT OK PLATO. A library date is stolen fruit. A Senior always feels like the High School is going to kids. The love game is never called off on ac- count of darkness. A safety razor is one with which there is absolutely no danger of harming— the beard. You spend your first three years in get- ting into things and your last year getting out. You don ' t have to go to a museum if you want to see queer things. Just take a squint at old N. H. S. There is not much romance in a girl in your own home town. WTien it comes to doing nothing there is sure some teamwork among some students. Social supremacy is a matter of trans- parency of hose. Eternity is brief compared to our Class Play. Have you ever noticed that no one ever steps on your shoes until you get ' em shined ? Bill, in an awed vdiisper: " Say, I ' m sure this pretty girl on the other side of me punched me with her elbow. " Toby: " Aw, fergit it. Don ' t you see she ' s knitting? " Maude Muller on a summer ' s day, Raked the meadow sweet with hay; We simply mention this fact to you Because it takes up a line or two. ART. Ait is long and tempus fugit. Which is about as Far as we ought to g ' 0 on the sub- ject. Some students have studied aii for three long years and all the) ' got out of it was thai Tract ion of a credit to make up for that something they flunked in, and to learn how to tie a Windsor lie properly. But it is evident that a (lowing tie does not make an artist any more than a one-piece khaki suit makes an expert automobile mechanic. Art covers a multitude of territory. It takes in almost everything from painting funny looking flowers on nice white china to making an unexpected speech before the assembly room. It ' s pretty hard for the amateur to figure out just w here art takes up and leaves off. All of which gets us no farther than we were when we start- ed out on this piece of nonsense, so judge Tor yourself. In Industrial History: " They should illuminate all the foreign population in the cities. ' ' One of the girls in the cooking class was asked : ' ' Hid you w 7 ash that fish before you cooked it! " ' ' No ; what ' s the use ? Hasn ' t it lived in the water all its life! " I stood upon a mountain, I looked upon the plain, I saw a lot of green stuff, That looked like waving grain. And then I looked again And sure I thought ' twas grass, But goodness, to my horror, It was the Freshman class. After their past four years in High School the Seniors bestow 7 the following ad- vice upon the lower classmen: Never do for yourself what you can get a teacher to do for you. In case of doubt, consult a Senior. Always throw 7 your chewing gum on the ceiling, as the teachers object to it on the floor. . . If you must fall, do it gracefully. Never cut your desk with a knife. Use an ax, it ' s quicker. Flirt with a teacher occassionally — they like it, too.

" Miss Chambers, in English VIII: " How does Sheridan get his characters off and on the stage in the ' School for Scandal? ' " George Neff : " At times they had to use the hook. " Fools are born every minute, and some- body wants to pick off an Annual job every year. Junior: " What is Allen ' s favorite game ? ' ' Senior: " I don ' t know. " -Junior: " Golf (Gough), of course. " T.I M M ' This is Hie stuff that, like Hie gas meter, goes on and on and then keeps going on. There are many kinds of time, hut (he worst kind of all is rag-time. Methuselah gave time an awful tussle hut it finally got him. W ' e shall mention a tew of the best known times: Dinner time, summer time, life time, apple blossom time, bed time, ex- amination time and high time. Cartoonists usually picture time as an old man with a scythe and hour glass and carrying long serpentine whiskers. We don ' t know why they picture him thus, un- less it is to keep people from taking him for Uncle Sam or somebody like that. Father Time ' s real name, we believe, is Tempus Fugit. A peculiar thing is that it never started nor will ever finish. In this respect it re- minds us of certain candidates for political office, but we decline to mention any names. The high-brow name for time is Temps just like the high-brow name for onions is shallots. An old proverb says, ' ' Time and title wait for no man, ' ' but this has nothing to do with women. Of course, time doesn ' t wait for women, as far as that is concern- ed. But they manage to stall off right smart by using somebody else ' s hair and by using detachable complexions. You might call them self-made women. But if you do you ' d better tell them over the long-dis- tance telephone or send ' em a postal card. Mr. Bronson: " A blotter is a thing one Mr. Bronson, in Chemistry: " Why are looks for while the ink is getting dry. " Jeanette Heller, in Com. Law: " Oh, that ' s the same recapitulation that we cap- tured yesterday. ' ' diamonds getting higher ? : Margaret Brown: " I suppose it ' s be- cause of the increased demand for engage- ment rings. ' ' SPRING FEVER. Spring fever is laziness in an advanced form. With some persons it is chronic — High School students especially. We have it all the year ' round. Maybe you have got it, too. If you have, permit us to offer our condolence. If you haven ' t, you don ' t know what you are missing. There is no cure as far as science is able to determine. A curious fact about this disease is that those afflicted with it have no desire to get rid of it. They are satisfied to just suffer and let the malady take its course. Basil Beeson: " The army retreated by going backwards. " Edward Kiddy, in the Rose City Pharm- acy: " Do you eat lemon ice with an ice pick? " Grubb: " Do you know what turns green earliest in the spring? " Stake: " No. " Grubb: " Christmas jewelry. " Put out the lights and all girls are the same.

Many trying and anxious moments were passed through while we watched it (the subject under discus- sion) grow from a tiny sprout to a grand and glorious hedge-row.

" Let not ambition mock their useful toil. " Ambition is the stuff that makes bus- iness good for the correspondence schools. It also makes millionaires out of the fellows who run the said schools. There are many kinds of ambition. When we were exposed to Julius Caesar in English class (not Latin, for we used a pony) we found out that he (Caesar) was ambitious. And you know what happened to him in the end. Ambition is also the stuff that makes a man dis- contented. The fellow working for $10 a week wants to make $15, and when he gets into the fifteen dollar class he is less satisfied than before. A small boy ' s ambition is to be a policeman. A policeman ' s ambition is to be a sergeant; a sergeant looks with longing eyes upon the captain ' s job and the captain wonders how he can get right with the next administration so as to be sure of being chief. The chief has prob- No matter what shop you take your repair work if it is a very difficult job Calland will work on it before you get it back. CALLAND North M ain Street ably ambition, too. But a line must be drawn somewhere and this seems to be about as good a place as any. Although some authorities disagree, the word ambition is, we believe, derived from the Anglo-Saxon, Am Bit, which means a dissatisfied condition. This has been corrupted into meaning " am stung " and other familiar expressions, conveying the thought that one is get- ting the worst of something and wishes to do better. Then, as will readily be seen, it is an easy matter to attach " ion " and make a regular word of it. If the reader is still in doubt as to the real meaning of the word or the above ex- planation is not perfectly lucid, he should, in order to get the meaning, try to imagine a Senior staying up until a late hour that he may have his lessons prepared for the following day, burning up some midnight gasoline. Then try to imagine the opposite of it and you will have it ready to put into your little notebook for future reference.
