Glass History Till ' , class of ' 19 licgan its twelve years ' offensive against the forts of with its forces numbering about six, under the experienced coinniaiid of Miss Efifie Wilson. She taught us the rudiments and principles of warfare and drilled us in the use of our literary and mathe- matical weapons. ' hcn fairly over the top and out on no man ' s land, and bullets fell thickly about us so that success seemed hopeless, rein- forcements arrived under the command of Miss Love Lindsey, and our forces were tripled in number. Under licr we ardently struggled for three years, profiting by her training and experience. Few casualities occurred, although some, overcome by wounds received from flying shrapnel or bursting bombs of mathematics, were forced to be carried to the rear, never to return. However, by occasionally drafting recruits our forces remained intact, our commander changing to .Addleman and Pusey suc- cessively. When ammunition ran low some used paper wads, manu- factured in quantity by hand (or mouth) while others were compelled to use their handkerchiefs as gas masks. Our most notorious mischief maker at this time was Worth Hill (Booker), although he was seldom found out. Mnally the shell holes of Grammar and the entanglements of Hi.story were left behind us and we faced the front line of Common School. In our eighth grade these were captured, and as a reward each was decorated with the Diplimia of I ' xonomy Common School, on Com- mencement Day in April, V) 5. I ' lUt the war was not yet over. The Heavy Artillery of High School was iKJt yet silenced, so, laying down a barrage of Energy and Determina- tion, over the top we scrambled and engaged the giants of Latin and Trig. in a struggle that meant Success or Failure. For four years we struggled under the able command of Brumfiel, Cishopp, Harvey and Shera. In the third. Success began to shine through the clouds of war and in the fourth year we emerged from the fight victorious, and celebrated X ' ictory on Commencement Day, . pril, 1919. Although we feel that we have made a credible attack on the Educa- tion sector of the Battlefield of Life, still we realize that our real .struggle lies ahead of us. And as we each take different paths and strive to attain different ideals, may we be endowed with a power of determination that will at last bring us jciy of Success. K. C, ' 19. Glass Prophecy IT WAS one afternoon in April, 1925. I was a nurse in a Sanitarium in San Franscisco, California. IMy patients were all resting- and I was sitting looking out over the ocean, a warm breeze was blowing through the room and as I sat there I happened to look at the calendar and seeing that it was the 25th of April, I remembered at once what I had been doing just six years ago that day. It was the day I was graduated from the Economy High School. I had not corresponded with any of the class for so long but still supposed some of them lived around Economy. I had just decided to write another letter when the postman came and to my surprise brought me a letter postmarkd " Economy. " I opened it and read thus : Dear Gertrude : Your letter came last week after having been delayed quite a while, but the postmistress finally gave it to me. I just happened to be here visiting Grandma. I am teaching in the Cin- cinnati Conservatory of Music. I like my work fine, and now since yon ask about all the others of our class, I will tell you all I can. Margaret is at the head of the Domestic Science Department in Shortridge Ifigh School in Indianapolis and is making quite a success. Carrie is a wonderful violinist and is in Boston play- ing for one of the Grand Operas there. Mary is teaching History in one of the High Schools of Chicago, you know she always was a History shark. Faye has donned the uniform, as you have, and is an excellent nurse, too. You remember Faye always was quiet and makes a great nurse. I supposed, of course, you knew what Anna was doing. She still clings to her ideas of Woman ' s Sufifrage and is a very active leader in that work. She gave a lecture in Cincinnati not long ago and I heard her; she is fine. Alma is playing the pipe organ in one of the large churches in New York, I can ' t just remember which one. So ends my tale about the girls of the class. Now for the boys. I know you will really be surprised when I tell you that our prohpecy about Kenneth and Benny really has come true. They are both electrical engineers and are both making a success. Raleigh is Professor of Science in DePauw and likes his work fine, I guess. Henry is a " Farmer " and a farmer for sure. He graduated from Purdue last spring and is now making the farm work fly. Gerald tried several things, I guess, but is now with the Chicago Operatic Company, one of the biggest Chautauqua companies going. I heard him last summer and he ' s fine. You know he always did have a good voice and liked so well to sing. And " Shorty " Bowman, I never knew what he was doing until I came home this time, well, he is Instructor in . thletics in Detroit, Michigan. It sure was a surprise to me when I heard it. Tommy is just as lively as ever ; he is a civil engineer in Chicago and likes his work fine. Well, I know you will be sur- prised when I tell you what Edgar Farmer is doing. Edgar is also traveling with a Concert Company. You know he always was so bashful but he has improved wonderfully and is going on a Chautauqua tour this summer as tenor with the Dunbar Quartette. I hope I can hear him. Willard began studying music in a Conservatory at New York in the fall of 1919 and is now at the head of the Alusic Department in Gary, Indiana. He is a wonderful cornetist, too, and is surely going some. I guess that Gilbert is the one left of the class. He is President of the Steel and Malleable Iron Works in Muncie. Now, Gertrude, I ' m saving the best ' til the last. There were several of us wondering where you were when your letter came. This same old class of 1919 is going to have an Alumni house- party at the Cranor Hotel the first week in August and we hope that all of us can get a vacation about that time. Let us hear from you soon. Yours as always Ju. NITA. IS Glass Poem F( )UR happy, well-spent years are gone, And lingering in our hearts Is just regret, that they so soon Cause us our ways to part. Hard years they were at times and long. But filled with youth ' s own joy: In them we learned our bookish lore As joyous girl and boy. Time cannot from our fancies chase The memory of these years ; They are the symbol of our hopes The cause of joy and fears. And we who braved the hardships all Of Toil ' s fiercest blast. Find that we ' re on the Threshold now Of Learning ' s door at last. Tliroughciut our lives nur aims shall he To do our very best : .And make this old world proud that we Have made our lives no jest. We ' ll strive as men and women should Where ' er our lot is cast. To live and love and learn and grow Whatever be the task. l- " are vell, dear school, we ' ll onward press To reach our goal, and do The things that men and women have In ])ast years failed to do.

JUNIORS Juniors Officers President — Irene Ballenger Secretary- Treasurer — AIarv Weldy Members Irene Ballenger Ruth Cain Zella Lamp, Mary Ann Lumpkin Mary Weldy Etiquette If somebody says something amusing wlien ou have your nmuth full of hot coffee, it is thought best not to laugh. Uon ' t tread upon the corn of the person sitting next to you, as he is likely to e. i)ostulate loudly. When fish is served, do not swallow the bones, but carefully place them on your neighbor ' s plate. Xever eat soup with a fork, as ynu might get choked. Don ' t ask for another helping when your plate is already overloaded. Noodles are not best eaten with a knife. It is not acceptable etiquette to slip cookies, pieces of jjie, etc., into one ' s pocket when no one is looking. .Vever on any occasion laugh when the fellow sitting next to von spills a howl of hot soup on his lap, but proceed to minister to the parts affected. Don ' t throw biscuits across the table at some person whom you don ' t like. I f t he meat is tougli, say so. If your neighbor ' s knife slijis, spilling gravy all over the cloth, proceed to do likewise to lessen his embarrassment. If ynur nose itches when ynur hands are full of chicken, ha e -oin- neighbor scratch it. If you feel you must sneeze during a lull in the conversion, put it oft ' till later. When you finish eating, gral) a han Iful of tooth-jiicks, and leave without ceremony. 22 SOPHOMORES J ■■1 ' 1t ' 1 toBp B v l| V ■ ' f. fl o l| IB , : St • ■ ■ A Sophomores Officers President — Fanny Cain Secretary-Treasurer — Clara Moarn Aloiibers Paul Adams Arthur Beard DUDLF.V BiSHOPP Fanny Cain Edwin Frazer Mayo Hardwick Lela Lamb Reece Lamb Elizabeth Manning Mary Mendenhall Clara Moarn Harry Van Schoiack Martha Stewart U uJ L z u :i. Qi •« 26 ORGANIZATIONS n 28 Economy Orchestra THE first time the Orchestra played in pubHc was in 1916, when the Young People ' s Department gave the play, " Church Bazaar at Mulberry ' s Corner. " There were five members — piano, Carol Weldy ; violins, Harry Parker, Carrie Cranor ; cornets, Willard Jordan, and Ralph Kennedy. The first pieces learned and used that night were " Melody in F " and " Love ' s Old Sweet Song. " Soon the members began to increase in number, then followed playing for Sunday School, Church and Epworth League meeting at Modoc, and a patriotic meeting at Williamsburg. In the fall of 1917 we were organized with the fol- lowing officers : President, Mary Ballenger : Treasurer, Kenneth Cain ; Secretary, Carrie Cranor. In the school year of 1917-1918, High School credit was given for Orchestra work. During the latter part of the year. Professor C. L. Walger was Director. We played for the Commencement in 1918 with Mary Ballenger presiding as Director. In July, 1918, with fifteen members, we engaged IMr. E. W. Garrett as Di- rector, adopted the Constitution and By-Lav ' s for an Orchestra, and organized under the name of " Economy Orchestra " with officers who are still in office : President — ] I. rv Pi.xllenger J ' ice-Prcsidcut — Willard Jordan, " 19 Treasurer — Kenneth Cain, ' 19 Scerctary — Carrie Cranor, ' 19 Librarian — Juanita Atkinson, ' 19 Board of Control — Mary Weldy, Juanita Atkinson Members Piano — Rena Manning Violins — Kenneth Cain, Carrie Cranor, Margaret Loop, Ruth Weldy, Ruth Jackson,, Mary B. llenger Cello — Carol Weldy Cornets — Willard Jord. n, R. lpii Kennedy, Mary Weldy.

It was the first one organized in the county and also the first national organization that was perfected in the I ' nited States. The Red Cross had forty-six members when first organized and in the Christmas Red Cross drive eighty-six more were added and between December, 1917, and January, 1918, eighteen more, making a total of one hundred fifty members. During the winter of 1917 there were many Trench candles made by the High School pupils under the direction of Mr. Brumfiel. There were also six Xmas boxes sent to the boys then in service. In the summer of 1918 the girls met every Tuesday and Friday afternoons of each week and made 377 4x4 compress and fifty 8 X 12 pads. Many of the girls also did much knitting. The fol- lowing articles were knitted and given to our boys who were then in service : nine sweaters, nine helmets, seven pairs wristlets, twenty- five pairs SOX, and five scarfs. There were also many articles knitted and sent through our branch, including four sweaters, five helmets, seventeen pairs sox, thirty-six wash cloths, nine medicine covers and thirty afghan blocks. In October, 1918, we reorganized with Margaret Loop chairman and Willard Jordan secretary and treasurer. Each meml)er paid his or her dues of twenty-five cents making a total of $20. 2. . There was S39.00 in the treasury. In l ' " el)ruarv, 1919, we adopted a French orphan. . girl eight years of age, whose name is Cyprienne Xougailhac. It will cost us $36.30 for one year. During this awful war the Junior Red Cross did all in its power to help in ever)- way ])ossihlc. Now that the struggle is ended we are still going to kcc]) on doing our bit. " . F.

H. S. baseball team this year held its own with all the surrounding teams that it played. Greensfork having been beaten by us for the last four or five years, thought that they could surely beat us this year, since we lost our pitcher. They were disappointed though due to the good fielding and batting of our team. The score was 9 to This is the first year we ever shut them out. We have had a series of games with Modoc, coming out even. We beat Modoc at Modoc, and by accident, of course, they beat us here. ' illiamsburg has proven also that they are not in it when it comes to baseball with Economy. The players in this year ' s team were : Raleigh Townsend, catcher, a heavy hitter when he hit the ball. Willard Jordan, first base, who was a good batter and hard to beat on base. Harold, (Shorty) Bowman, second base, one of our best men, mak- ing several long hits. Ralph Kennedy, third base, young but a good player for a boy. Reece I.amb, short-stop, could catch a ball and one of our best batters. Gilbert (Pete) Wadman, left field, having several long hits to his credit. George Boner, center field, could catch the ball and always knew where to throw it. Ralph Fisher and Forrest Cain, right field, were inexperienced, but knew how to catch a ball and batted good. Gerald (Gay) Kennedy, pitcher, was willing to ])atch but was out of his place. G. K. 33 Basket Ball OUR first game in a hall was played at Greensfork. We beat them 43 to 14 and so discouraged Greensfork that they quit playing basketball altogether. We then entered the Athletic Associa- tion and our first game was with New Lisbon. The score was 15 all at the end of the first half, but at the end of the second half the score was 25 to 2S and Xew Lisbon was three points in the lead. This was the nearest they had come to being beaten on their own floor this sea- son, defeating Cambridge, Fountain City and Hagerstown by large scores. The second game at Fountain City. The score was 48 to 4 in favor of Fountain. This was not basketball but football, only four fouls being called and those on Economy. The third game was with New Lisbon again at New Lisbon, the score was 42 to 28 in favor of Xew Lisbon. The game was fast and clean, much different from the Fountain game. ( )ur games at the tournament were the best games we had played. We beat Modoc 15 to 13 in a very close and exciting game, but we held the lead and were never in doubt but what we could win. This game was played F ' riday afternoon, March 7, at one o ' clock. ( )ur next game was with Connersville Saturday morning at eight o ' clock. We had al- ready upset the " dope bucket " liy beating Modoc and we gave it another hard kick by holding Connersville to a 15 to 7 score. They thought we were easy but soon found out different. We held them scoreless the first ten minutes but at the end of the first half the score was 8 to 4 in favor of Connersville. We played as well the second half, they making 7 points, ourselves 3. 35 Calendar SEPTEMBER Monday, 3 — School began. Mr. L. W.
