"Little, but Oh, my!"
There are just oodles and oodles of
Smiths in history, and elsewhere, but
none of them quite compare with our
little red-headed president. Mabel is hap-
Better known as "Bun." ls the pos-
sessor of a keen sense of humor and also an
excellent tenor voice. He fills the posi-
tion of captain of the baseball team. Thus
far he has never been in a mood serious
enough to ascertain his plans for the fu-
Cleo came from Oklahoma, She is a
promising student in music and is a con-
tralto singer. Dancing is her favorite
pastime. Although she doesn't express
her future plans, we feel she has high
aims. She has rendered invaluable serv-
ice as business manager on the editorial
Marvel is from the country, which is
readily suggested by her ability as a cule
inary genius and her energetic ways. She
never leaves anythinig unfinished. Mar-
vel possesses the rare talent of a natural
reader and expects to study elocution.
Pauline can make a piano talk, and the
good part about it is, she's always"willin'."
Deep into the night, Pauline's- candle
burns as she pores over a well-worn vol-
ume of Virgil.
"Chilly" is a sub-dude, but he cannot be
subducd. Iiis names rather frigid, but
after all, "lVlTat's in a mimi?" A mem-
ber of the faculty has prophesied that he
would someday' make a mark in the
world, providing he could stay awakclung
enough, Earl has two ambitions,--phzzr
many and a ceriain '14 brunette.
BETTY VAN DUSEN.
Betty is a breezy, buoyant butterfly and
a brunette. She does not often talk seri-
ously, but when she does. her arguments
are very pmsiiasive. Her one flllllt is her
forgetlulness, and we all hope that she
will one day forget that.
Vlayva is one of the class who Com-
menced school here twelve years algo.
She has been a diligent student. She is

SENIOR CLASS POEM.
Still sits our school house by the road,
Its doors wide open swinging.
Around it still the children play,
And loud the bell ringing.
XVithin the teachers all are seen-
Assistant and Professor,
And Principal and all the rest,
Some greater and some lesser.
Thev are not all the ones we knew
Wihen we first came to school here
Tho' we'll admit they are as true
As any known to rule here.
XVe all have failings as we know,
XVe do not fear to own them,
But we are here to End them ort
And light them, not bemoan them.
NVQ may think teachers, too, have faults
That make them hard, unfeeling,
But if we knew their trials all
Perhaps there'd be less squealing,
Sometimes to see us you would think
Our sole aim here was playiii,
But in our hearts, for ends in view,
The deepest plans we're laying.
VVe hope in ages vet to come,
The work we do will live,
Our influence be for the best,
And help to others give.
So let us do the best we can,
Our talent has been seen-
And make our High School proud of us,
The Seniors of '15.

To the Class of 1915, Edgerton High School.
Greetings: It is with greatest pleasure that I send to you this word of
Even as I write I see again the pleasant faces of that company of High
School youth who were for two years my loved companions and co-Workers.
Their pleasing dispositions, thoughtful acts of kindness and untainted morals
form a beautiful picture, the masterpiece in the art collection of my past mem-
It is my earliest prayer that their ideals and aspirations may be but the
highest, the means of attaining them but the noblest and their consequent
successes but the most glorious.
May there be none to mar the pure and spotless reputation of our class,
but rather may the life of each be noble though humble, useful though luxu-
rious, and pure though possessing the most contaminating environments.
Again may we not be slaves to environment, but rather skilled and com-
petent masters of our destinies.
Though our paths of life have parted perhaps never more to meet, let our
common membership in this class ever be an assurance of sincere sympathy
and good fellowship between us.
Sending heartiest congratulations to you individually as friends and
wollectively as a class, I rejoice to subscribe myself, '
Your friend and former classmate,

JUNIOR cLAss Poem.
In nineteen hundred and twelve our fame began,
And we were known as the "Freshie" elang
A happier bunch you never did see,
'That entered the E. H. S. than we.
Our class it numbered twenty-nine strong,
And we never did anything really wrong:
We passed the "exams" with honors great,
XVere seldom absent, and never late.
Toward the close of the year our one great aim
Was to write Sophomore after our name.
In nineteen hundred and thirteen you find us back
As "Sophies" in the E. H. S. But alack-
The class was not as large as of yoreg
We scarcely numbered twenty-four.
But we were the same jolly old set,
For the number did not worry us one bitg
VVe had only one object in view,
Tolpass the "exams," and thus slip through
The Juniors' place was then our aim,
For that would add to our future fame.
ln nineteen hundred and fourteen a new faculty we
lVhen we return as juniors to freshen each mind.
Our class has now dropped to just one score,
Although our aim was twenty-four.
A more industrious class you cannot hndg
lVe leave all others far behind.
Oft war and devastation cloth appal,
And leave the taste of wormwood and of gall:
But we try to keep cheerful. and do our best,
For we take the lead in the E. H. S.
XVith patience rare, we are striving to attain
That rank and bear the Senior name,

Since the High School has been divided into literary societies, no so-
ciety has surpassed the Pi Tau Beta in rendering rhetorical programs. The
object in dividing the school into two societies is to arouse friendly rivalry
and school spirit. The society tries to make each program better than the
preceding one, and to give better programs than its rival. It is the aim of
each society to excel. The name, "Pi Tau Beta," "Let us consider these
things," shows that the value of this work in school is appreciated. If these
programs were considered more seriously, there would be fewer members
failing to participate. This literary work should not be neglected, not only
because of pleasure derived, but of benefit,-pleasure and instruction both
to hearer and participant.
Some splendid productions have been given by the members. The mu-
sical numbers, both vocal and instrumental, are always well receivedg and
Marvel Boos shows rare talent in her delivery of readings and pianologues.
Pupils derive much benefit from original and historical work and debates.
The Pi Tau Beta newspaper, written for each program. is a 'strong feature
in original work. The editorials, poems, current events, jokes and material
composing the paper require originality and thought. Humorous readings
and recitations, some original stories, and jokes, add the "spice of life" to
the programs. They are criticised, favorably or otherwise, by Pauline Mast,
and the members are thus encouraged and shown ways of improvement.
Although we have worked to make the Pi Tau Beta a success, we hope
those following us will raise the standard. The programs have been good.
but they can be improved. Debating, especially, can arouse greater enthu-
siasm than it has this year. Debating clubs should be organized for pleas-
ure and profit. Original work should be made prominent. Many pupils are
wanting in self-confidence. They should be encouraged and made to feel
that they are needed and capable of doing the required work. They cannot
derive so much good from a daily recitation before classmates as they can
by appearing before the school and friends. lt should be the aim of each
individual member, and of the entire Pi Tau Beta Society, to do better work
each year, for "not failure but low aim is crime."

After the society had chosen its name, a constitution was drawn up by
a few members, ratified by the whole society., The motto, "VVe Learn by
Doing," was chosen, and also the colors, Cardinal and Ivory. -
Up to date, the society has rendered five programs, which have been well
attended by people of the town. These programs have been given in the
afternoon and consisted of musical numbers, debates, readings, etc. For each
program a paper has been edited by a few members, which usually consisted
of editorials, current events, poetry, original stories, jokes, etc.
Among the debates was a very interesting one: "Resolved, That the
author has been a greater benefit to mankind than the statesman." In this
argument the allirniative, Frances Bell and Marjory Sharp, won, but never-
theless the negative, Verna Gabriel and Fern Wlines, put up a very good
discussion and showed much ability.
The Zenith Society is fortunate in having the High School artist and
cartoonist, Homer Houck, as a member. His work is always greatly appre-
ciated. lVe also have several talented musicians which are a credit to the
Nothing can better express our aim than our name, "Zenith," and we
have endeavored during the past months to live up to it, It has-not been for
amusement alone that these programs have been given every four weeks, but
for the beneht derived from them.
THE MISTAKE WHICH WROUGHT A CHANGE.
lt was on the first day of june, just after Katherine, the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. F. I. Fink had finished her high school career and graduated.
that she, with her parents, left their home in Mount Vernon, Indiana, for a
trip to Germany. This was to be Katherine's graduating gift. She had been
planning for it over a year, and, when the eventful day Finally arrived, she
was somewhat excited, yet very much pleased. Had it not been for her
thoughtful parents, it might have been possible that she would have gone,
even without her trunk.
On Vlfednesday morning at six o'clock, the train which they had board-
ed left Mount Vernon. On the following day at seven P. M., they reached
New York City, where they were to board the "Kaiser Xvlllldllll Der Groszf'
It was to leave harbor at 9:30 Friday morning, so Katherine, who had be-
come quite tired, would have had time to rest, had it not been for the noise
and turmoil of the city. This was her first visit to New York and it of course
added to her excitement. Having fallen asleep very late, it seemed as though
she had scarcely struck her pillow when her mother gently tapped her on the
shoulder, saying that she would have to hurry and prepare for breakfast, as
they had only three hours and a half until their steamer would leave.
VVhen breakfast was over, they went to the shore of the ocean. Kath-
erine, so greatly amazed at its seemingly never ending width and length, was,
almost too much frightened to step on board the steamer, which she described
as the most overwhelmingly large structure that she had ever seen. But,
through her father's consoling words, the step was taken, and soon all was
The ocean voyage was very pleasant to the family. They were not much
troubled by fog or storm, but Mrs. Fink and Katherine suffered a few days
from seasickness. However, Katherine considered it all thrown in, and they
were soon enjoying the oceanqbreeze again with those whom they had met
and already learned to admiref Katherine was very friendly and loving, and
thus made many friends in a short time. Her golden hair, her bright blue
eyes, her rosy cheeks and loving countenance seemed to attract the attention
of all with whom she came in contact. But after a voyage of about ten days
the fathomless' mysteries of the ocean began to disappear and Katherine spied
land in the far-off distance. So it was not long until they entered the harbor
of Bremen, Germany.
Here the family were met by an uncle of Mr. Fink's whom they had never
seen before. Nevertheless, Katherine was able to recognize him without
much trouble by the picture which he had sent them shortly before their trip.
Uncle john, as the family addressed him, lived in Hamburg, on the Elbe,
so it did not take long to reach his home. During the first week they remained
there in order to rest and become acquainted. Then the sight seeing began.
Uncle John and his youngest daughter, Marie, accompanied the family. They
visited Berlin with its fine buildings and universities, Dresden and Munich,
noted for their art schoolsg the great cathedral of Cologne, Leipzig, the book-
publishing center, and many other places in which they were interested.
XN'hen they returned after a three-weeks' sojourn, the elder daughter, Mar-
guerite, and her brother, were there to join them. Marguerite had just begun
her first term in teaching music, and she was very much pleased when she
learned that Katherine was a lover of the same art and expected to take a
course in a musical college after she returned to America.
Immediately she set to work to make some plan which would induce
Katherine's parents to let her remain with them and get her desired education
there. Mr. Fink had planned to return in about a week, having already been
absent from his business nearly two months. It was hard for him to refuse
li-Iarguerite's wish, but it was very, very much more difiicult for him to grant'
it. He thought of the many, many days that he and his wife would be forced
to spend without the center of sunshine, without the smiling face that always
seemed to inspire him with more zeal and determination in his life as a busi-
ness man. Nevertheless ,he was not a man who would consider a thing once,
and then let it escape his mind. He thought the matter over carefully, and
when he saw that Katherine seemed to have a desire to remain, he gave his
This, however, did not decide the matter. Mrs. Fink, as all mothers, had
such a deep and immeasurable love for her daughter that she thought "what
if she should get sick, or, when she would return, what if the ship would
sink and she would never see her again." All these thoughts passed through
her mind as she lay awake during the nights since Marguerite's plea had
found a lodging in her mind. It was decided, however, that Katherine would
return with her mother after an indefinite time and Mr. Fink would leave in
After his departure, Katherine and her mother became somewhat homes
sick, but Uncle john and his wife were very jolly, so that they could not re-
main in that mood long. However, something more serious occupied their
attention, when, on August second, Mrs. Fink read in the daily paper that the
ship "Prince Edward" had had some misfortune and that, if help did not ar-
rive soon, the ship would sink. Vifhen Katherine came in from her morning
outing, she found her mother deathly pale, in a chair near the front window.
"Mother," she said, "what has befallen you?" 'f0h!" she gasped, "father's
ship has sunk, and we-we shall see him-no-" She could say no more,
and Katherine was so frightened that she scarcely knew what she was doing.
After her mother revived sufficiently to show them-for all the family had
now gathered around-what she had read, Katherine had gained enough self-
control to convince herself that it surely was not the "Prince Edward" on
which her father left, but the "Prince Henryf, She could scarcely speak words
fast enough to convince her mother of the same fact, and seemed unable to
do so until her cousin, Marie, found the picture of the steamer itself, with its
name. She was not altogether at ease, however, until she read in the next
day's paper that help had reached thc ship in time, because she had thought
perhaps some other loved one might have been separated from his dear ones
by a watery grave.
During the days which followed, Katherine became more and more at-
tached to her cousins. They, with several neighbors, Henry and Frieda
Lendeng, spent many happy hours together. The days seemed to fly very
quickly, and her love for the home of her forefathers began to grow stronger
each day. Therefore, she said to herself one day, "If it were not for being
absent so long from father and mother, I should not hesitate one minute to
remain here, for I know Uncle John's love for me and wish for me to stay."
Marguerite entered the room just on time to hear her last few words. They
struck her so, that she thought perhaps her mother had granted her request
after all. However, her mother was still inclined to think otherwise. There-
fore, having made arrangements to leave for America, by way of Amsterdam,
on the fourth of September, they bade their friends farewell. But, alas! when
they reached Amsterdam their steamer had gone. There had lDCCll a mistake
as to the date of its leaving, and their tickets were useless. This was a keen
disappointment, because Mr. Fink was expecting them to come on that ship.
Yet it could not be helped. They had to resort to the next best thing, and
Mrs. Fink said to Katherine, "Perhaps this had to occur in order that you
might still get a chance to remain here." These words from her mother sur-
prised her greatly, but she saw that her mother was in earnest.
After a 'day's arrangements at Amsterdam, the following telegram was
sent to Uncle john: "Our ship has gone, and I shall return to remain with
you. K. lVI.f'
Katherine was so much taken up over the sudden turn of affairs that she
could hardly control herself. On the following day, when her mother left,
she burst into passionate tears. She was so excited that when the train for
Hamburg pulled into the station she had not even purchased her ticket. In
her excitement, she felt a hand gently touch her shoulder, and, looking around,
she stared into the face of Henry Lendeng, the young man who lived next
door to her uncle. She quickly told him of their misfortune, and by hurrying.
he had just enough time to purchase her a ticket and together they returned
to her uncle's home. W '
After spendiii a few days there, she began in voice culture, as she had
already taken up instrumental music. She had a beautiful voice. It was so
full of sweetness, so clear and thrilling that those who heard her could not
help but be touched by the words which were always so full of rapture. The
young people of their neighborhood, including Henry, who had helped Kath-
erine out of her difficulty, were often entertained by Katherineis singing, and
Marguerite's accompanying her on the piano.
Katherine wrote home often, and her parents were well pleased, as she
told them that she loved them as never before, and how she was progressing
in her music. She told them, too, of her experience after her mother left, and
how kind Henry had been to her. Katherine had noticed that he lingered
after the others had returned home quite frequently. After a year had
passed, the intimacy between them had grown far beyond that of the first
day when he so kindly assisted her.
On their return home from a social gathering, one night several weeks
later, Henry surprised her by asking if she thought that they might ever meet
in America. Frankly, she said that she thought it might not be impossible,
but that when her musical education was completed, she would return to her
home and begin teaching, as that was her great aim. This decided answer
from Katherine rather startled him, for he was intensely disappointed. His
deep love for her had seemingly not been returned-for this reason their
friendship was not so strongly' united for a while. But, as Katherine's last
year of work was nearing its close, and she was preparing for her part of the
recital, she decided to sing the song which had always been Henry's favorite.
He was eager to hear her, and he knew,--yes, he felt,-that she was singing
it entirely for him, a fact which made it all the more sweet and charming.
He hesitated, however, to tell her all he thought, and not until the day of her
departure did he whisper to her not to forget him even though the ocean
separated them. After bidding her friends farewell, amid pleasure and joy,
and expressing her manifold thanks to them for all their kindness, she left
Amidst great rejoicing, just two years and a half after she' left home
with her parents, she was within the bounds of her dear old home. Every
one was so pleased when Katherine returned, and it was not long until she
had a class, and was ready to teach. She was not only successful as a teacher,
but often she would cheer those who were in distress or sorrow by her sing-
ing. Her services in the church were appreciated to the fullest extent, and
after she had spent two years of her life in her chosen work, she had made
just five years from that eventful day when they had left New York
harbor, Katherine received a letter from across the ocean, which somehow
made her heart beat in excitement before she had time to discover its contents.
It read as follows: -
"I-Iamburg, Germany, May 19, ---
"My dear Katherine:
It has now been two years since I have seen or heard from you. The
time has been very long to me, but I thought I would let you reach the height
of your ambition, and I would attain mine before confronting you again with
the question which you answered me so decidedly. I hope that your love has
grown stronger and that you will answer this time in words more consoling.
If I say that I will be with you by next Christmas I trust that then you will
be ready to take a new scholar in exchange for your class at present.
Yours sincerely, HENRY."
So it was arranged that I-Ienry's wish should come true, even though it
was a year after Henry wrote his first letter that Katherine gave up her class.
Although she gave up her teaching, her career as a singer did not end with it.
During her entire life she was always ready to do a deed of kindness, and if
sorrow befell them, it was always Katherine's voice who brought back the
smile of relief. ROSE C. VALET, 'l6.
Clarice entered the postoiflce with an air Qf hopelessness. "It has been so
long since I have received a letter," she complained to Mildred, her com-
panion, "I'm sure I never would survive the shock if I did get one."
The young doctor, who stood in the shadow, looked up from the letter he
had been reading, and smiled to himself. He folded the letter carefully and
placed it in his pocket as he moved toward the door.
Clariee rose on her tiptoes and looked into the mail box. "There is one
there!" she cried, then gasped, "for me!" In a pretended faint, she staggered
backward into the arms of her ehum. A merry laugh from the girl, however,
informed her of her mistake, and she hurled around to face-the doctor.
"O-o-o," she stammered in confusion, "I beg your pardon." "The pleasure,"
replied he, "was all mine," and passed out of the door. "VVell, the nerve-,"
began Clariee, but the sentence was never finished, probably because she
could think of nothing adequate. She almost forgot her letter, but her friend
reminded her of it. Then came the fun of reading it.
"From Emily Davenport," she exclaimed, "and an invitation to her house
party next week." Gaily the girls hurried off to make preparations. Of
course Mildred told her brother of the incident in the postoffice, and he imme-
diately informed Clarice's brother, Don. That night at dinner Clarice was
much more quiet than usual, for she was a girl full of health and fun.
"lNhat's bothering you, my dear?" her mother asked, but before she
could reply her brother spoke: "Oh! she's in love, didn't you know? VVith
young Doc. Carroll," he went on to explain. "XVhy. she even throws herself
into his arms in public."
Clarice blushed furiously and stared at her plate.
"Look at her blush," he teased. "Aw, come, sis, deny it if you dare."
Evidently she didn't dare, for she rose hastily and fled to her room. XVhen
she reached that haven, she threw herself upon the bed and began a rigid
self-questioning. XVhy didn't she deny it? Wfhy? Xlihy? Dr. Vernon Car-
roll had only reeentlv come to Carson. He was young and good looking, and
consequently caused quite a flurry among the young girls. Clariee was nine-
teen and had been as interested as any. But the doctor was very cool and
distant, and so far none of the girls had succeeded in making any impression.
Not until this evening had Clariee been aware how deeply interested she had
been, but Don's taunts had laid bare the truth.
After Clarice had left the table, her father reproved Don, so the next
day nothing was said of the affair. She and her mother were busy getting
ready for her visit at Riverview with the Davennorts. .Xt the same time.
other preparations were being made in Carson. Dr. Carroll, too, had received
an invitation. The days Hew by, and Tuesday afternoon saw Clarice ready for
Don accompanied her to the train and saw her comfortably seated, and
that she had the necessary supply of fruit and magazines.
The train was in motion before she had time to notice her fellow-passenh
ger- The bleed left her face an she saw Dr, Carre!! only a few meats distant,
and then came flooding back again as he caught her eye and smiled. She
nodded in return, and a few strides brought him to her side.
"Are you contemplating fainting again F" he asked. Instantly her com-
posure returned. "NN-'ell," she laughed, "I'm not so sure: I've so much ex-
citement before me, I probably will."
"You might tell me about it," he suggested.
Then followed a breathless recital of the pleasures she had planned.
"That's great," he said in reply. "I do hope you will be so kind as to let me
enjoy some of that fun, for I, too, am going to Riverview."
"Fm so glad," she breathed.
"Not nearly so much as I," he said softly, almost inaudibly, as his hand
closed over hers.
The car door banged as the brakeman entered. "Arlington, next stop,"
The doctor and Clarice started guiltily, and began to collect her things,
for they were to leave the train at Arlington, where Emily would meet them
with ponies and cart. They would then have a drive of tive or six miles to the
Davenport country home.
As Clarice and Vernon left the train, Stanley Harrison touched Ernily's
arm and whispered, "just returning from their honeymoong don't they
look it ?"
"How happy you two do look," mocked Stanley.
"XVe are happy," smiled Clariceg "just imagine the fun we are going to
"Foiled," sighed Stanley.
Sundown found them all gathered on the Davenport veranda. There
were Agnes, Polly, Irene, Vera, Clarice and Emily: and Bob, Fritz, Virgil,
Dai-mar, Vernon and Stanley. Such fun as they lad planning what they
would do on the morrow. They couldn't agree, until Polly called for silence,
calmly stating that she wanted to be heard whether anyone else did or not.
"This is my first visit to Riverview," she announced. "I've never been
all over the place, and I don't think many of you others have either. S0 I
suggest we go O11 an exploring trip. VVhat say you ?"
She was greeted with a chorus of "Fine!" "XVise head, yours!" "Leave
it to Polly," etc. And so it was decided.
The next day dawned clear and cool, with a brisk breeze from the south-
east. "It's la beautiful day, but I'd wait until tomorrow for that hike if I were
you. That wind means rain." was the advice of Mr, Davenport.
"VVe'll be back long before it rains, Daddy, so don't you worry," con-
soled Emily, and trooped away.
Soon they began to pair off, each couple taking its own lunch. Clarice
and the Doctor wandered far from the rest. XVithout warning, a big drop
splashed on Clarice's hand. Two faces were raised wonderingly to the sky. A
tossing mass of black clouds met their gaze. They had been too engrossed in
their conversation to notice the approach of the storm.
Vernon began to look about for shelter, and Clarlce called for the others
of the party. The echo of her own voice was the only answer she received,
so she did not repeat the shout. The Doctor grasped her arm and pointed tg
n wee house n few hundred feet away, almost hidden by the iinderbruah.
"I guess it's our only hope," he said, as they ran towards it, for the drops
were falling faster.
VVhen they reached the building they found it a solidly built structure,
and, on entering, saw pictures of all sorts, finished and unfinished sketches,
and several portfolios.
"This must be Emily's studio she was telling me of," Clarice panted.
"That's just it," agreed Vernon, "is'nt it a dandy? I wonder how far it
is from the house."
"About a half or three-quarters of a mile, I think," she answered.
"VVel1, we aren't solbad off, are we ?"
"I'm awfully hungry," declared Clarice.
"So am I," admitted Vernon.
"Then let me have those numerous packages you so thoughtfully stowed
away in your pockets," she returned.
As he began to produce all kinds of bundles, she unwrapped them and
placed them' on a tiny table. They found an alcohol lamp and a coffee urn, as
well as some coffee. Clarice soon had a hot drink prepared. Then they sat
down on opposite sides of the table. Suddenly he leaned forward and looked
into her eyes.
"C1arice, I want you to sit opposite me at my table always! XVill you ?"
As he came around the table she rose swiftly, her hand flew to her burning
"I-I-yes-I--" but her reply was smothered.
The rain had ceased and the sun was shining again.
"But, Vernonff she murmured from his shoulder, "we've known each
other only for such a short time."
"But, dear," he replied, "we've known all about each other a long time."
Slowly they left the little cottage and made their way along the little path
which led to-the road. Xlfhen they reached the house, Clarice went straight
to Mrs. Davenport and informed her of their return. She whispered some-
thing else in her ear that made the lady hug her impulsively.
That night at dinner Mrs. Davenport arose: "Ladies and gentlemen,"
she said, "you will all be surprised to learn of the engagement of--"
"Dr. Vernon Carroll and Miss Clarice Stephens," they finished in chorus.
"Of course, we are dreadfully surprised," giggled the irrepressable Polly.
A DREAM OF DREAMS.
It was Monday morning, and a mysterious stillness reigned over the
assembly of the E. H. S. The Facility at their respective places had discarded
their look of care for a beautiful smile of peace. The Freshmen, looking more
meek than usual, bent low over their books, while the Sophomores and Juniors
wore a deep expression of wonder as they gazed at the vacant seats of the
just before the time for the sounding of the gong, a slight
heard from without. All looked toward the side entrance, where
to their delight, the missing Seniors. Miss Van Dusen, without
giggle, led the orderly class into the room ,where each member
place without confusion.
As Mr. lleer distributed the song-books for the morning exercises, Wavva
Irish and Cleo Xlfallice took their places at the piano, determined to proceed
without whisper or discord, while the remainder of the class arose with the
first chord, and sang in unison the selected songs.
The first classes were called and had fairly begun their recitations, when
one of the Faculty, hearing a whisper in the back of the room, calmly stepped
to the front of the class and gave Elizabeth Butcher and Charles XViles per-
mission to make a call at the office of Mr. Heer. This act of misconduct by
the Freshmen so humiliated the Seniors that Mabel Smith and Frances Bell
took it upon themselves to remain after school and talk with the culprits.
The poor, discouraged Seniors again gathered courage to begin once more
to follow their resolution. In fact, at the intermission period, they had gath-
ered at the class room door and were clapping their hands in glee, as they
watched Marvel Boos and Leona Roberts toiling down the stairs towards the
library with each arm full of books of fiction. This great sacrifice by the two
great readers was followed by another of greater importance. Samuel Mowry
changed his seat to the front of the room among the boys, and never once did
he allow his eyes to rovc in the direction of his fair young friends.
' All went well until the last period in'the morning, when at last Pauline's
love for whispering overpowered her, and, for one little second, she forgot all
except her question to Alice and Rowena. No sooner had it been done than
she, with the others, felt much grieved and decided to punish herself by re-
maining after school one whole hour to study Virgil.
Never before since the beginning of the E, H. S. had there been such a
strife for better conduct. Early in the afternoon Earle Chilcote, fearing tlt
his late hours would again call for his usual nap, placed a pin in the center
of his desk, where he would surely be reminded if he should forget and lay
his head upon his arms.
The pin served the purpose, and the remainder of the day passed away
without a fault from any one. Even the juniors and Sophomores caught the
spirit and followed in the footsteps of the Seniors, while the Fl'CSl1men, with
a few exceptions, remained as usual.
The following morning, all assembled at the usual time, not forgettlug
their new resolutions from the previous day. The Literature class was called
and Verna Gabriel, in her hurry to get to class, forgot her text, Willem asked
why she did not bring it, in answering she made a slight error in her gram-
mar. Its being noticed by a small portion of the class caused her much worry.
After the class was dismissed, she was seen writing, correctly, her answer to
ln the farther corner of the assembly room Hazel Poorman sat, studying
alone, with a large Geography on her desk. During this period Frank Haddix
was conducting a class in Algebra. He stood at the front of the room, look-
ing very stern, while, at the board, six brilliant pupils were working at their
special assignments. Not a whisper could be heard in the room.
The school was then dismissed by the principal, and each Senior marched
to the rank, keeping step with the music as never before. After leaving the
building, they persuaded the remainder of the school to march in order to the
end of the school ground.
And thus my mysterious dream ended. ANON.
QXVith Apologies to O. XV. Holmesj

THE FRESHMAN PARTY.
The Freshmen gave a party,
Not many moons agog
The air was clear and frosty,
The ground was white with snow.
A week or more of planning,
Of how, and when, and whereg
Class meetings, whisperings, buzzings
At last the plans were made,
And Paul would be our hostg
Ambrose would be our hostler-
His nags could pull the most.
Our President appointed
Six girls who could agree, '
On the entertainment committee-
VVe must have games, you see.
Elizabeth and Cecil,
Then Carma and Ileene,
Ethel and Florence Bratten,
VVere the ones, and well they plan.
Our dear old Alma Mater
VVas the place where we should wait
For the arrival of our teamster,
XVho came a little late.
It was a jolly crowd
That filled the sled that nightg
Although packed in like sardines,
For all 'twas great delight.
W'e soon were at the door,
The journey seemed so short,
And e're long the entire house
VVas ringing with our sport.
The first thing was a game
Especially for the wise,
Conundrums were strung about-
The best guesser won a prize.
Then "Simon says, thumbs up,"
And "Beast and bird and fish,"
XVho can blow the candle out?"
And "XVho must spin the dish ?"
Then we stopped our playing
To enjoy cake and ice cream.
The quality needs no comment,
Each face with joy did beam.
And as we often find in fiocks
An odd sheep in the bunch,
VVillie the junior came to enjoy
Our sports, our games, our lunch
He brought the box of candy
VVith the girl on the lid,
For this, with several others,
VVas sold at the highest bid.
You see, we needed money,
So the girls had brought a store
Of popcorn and candy,
Prepared the day before.
The time when honest folks
Should be safe in their bed,
Came soon, so all must depart,
And good-night must be said.
Spencer's words seemed real to us,
During those happy hours:
How noiseless falls the foot of time
That only treads on flowers 1"
Not one member of that party,
Wlherever he may roam,
'Will e'er forget the happy time
YVe had while at Paul's home.
ETHEL VVEBER- 18
lfVhen to our Memory we recall,
The days of school now ended,
May we think of joys and sorrows
That together there were blended.
Many were the happy greetings
That were spoken in the hall,
Naught to us but a recollection,
That we now to mind recall.
For the classes go like flower and weed,
And others come as we behold,
To fill the seats, of those they succeed,
And repeat the studies, so often told.
NVe are the same that others have been,
NVe do the same task under the same sun.
VVe see the same that others have seen,
And run the course, that others have run.
Here is where our steps were quickened,
As we met at the open door,
And memory sees the threshhold,
That we will cross no more.
Wfhen out upon the sea of life,
The anguish billows break.
May the foundation we have laid,
Help us to work for our fellows' sake.
As thru this life we toil in vain,
May He watch and guide us yet,
And in our memory keep fresh these things,
"Lest we forget, " "Lest we forget."

THE EDGERTON HIGH SCHOOL BASE BALL CLUB
There is no organization in which athletics ca11 be of a greater benefit
than in the High School. There is a real need for them, yet in spite of this
need, which is very apparent, there is considerable opposition.
VVC must remember that athletics are intended to develop the body and
also create the proper school spirit. There are schools whose one object is
to win the game either by fair or foul means. -Every school should strive to
win games, but do it in a fair way and if the game is lost, the school should
show itself to be a good loser.
Athletics in the E. H. S. have been one of the principal factors in making
this school one of the foremost Games played with teams from the schools of
the neighboring towns will instill a school spirit which can but serve to place
the H. S. at a standard far above any that ,could be hoped for without the
aid of the different sports. 1
A Basket Ball Team was organized in the fall and would have been a
success had we been able to secure a hall. The town was searched for a suit-
able place, but to no availg therefore this sport had to be given up.
Tennis is one of the principal sports of the School. It is a sport in which
every one may take part, thus making it an ideal game for the school yard.
No sport is superior to tennis for the development of all the muscles of the
body and its full value cannot be expressed.
Undoubtedly the most prominent sport is Base Ball. The Edgerton
High School has always been able to produce a first-class ball team, one thai
can hold its own among the teams of the larger schools.
The team of 1914-15 is one of the best, if not the best, that has repre-
sented this school. Every position is filled with a player that is especially
adapteclto his respective work. In every game played, they showed a marked
superioiity over their rivals. It is a team that never gives up and lights only
for the good of the Edgerton High School.
At Edgerton-September 25, 1914.
This game was a walkaway for Edgerton. Edgerton batted and fielded
well, while the Farmer boys were weak both on the defensive and offensive
After the start of the game it was only a question as to how large the score
would he on the Edgerton side. Score:
Edgerton, 243 Farmer, 8.
Burkhart . Poole
Killinger M. Chilcote
Battery-Killinger, E. Chilcote, and Poole.
At Farmer, October 9, 1914.
This was one of the most interesting games ever played at Farmer. A1
the beginning Farmer obtained the lead through errors and bad judgment
on the part of one or two of our players. In the seventh Edgerton rallied and
overcame a four-run lead. The game was called at the end of the ninth on
account of darkness with the score a tie. Beyond a doubt Edgerton would
have won had the game been continued. Score:
Edgerton, 75 Farmer, 7.
Burkhart C. Poole

Battery-Killinger, E. Chilcote, and Poole.
Umpires--Becan and Heer.
At Edgerton, October 23, 1914.
The best game was the one with Butler. Men were on the bases nearly
every inning, but through fast fielding and airtight pitching they were unable
to score. The pitching was excellent upon both sides, with Killinger having
the better of it. Score:
Edgerton, 3g Butler, 2.
E. Chilcote M. Chilcote
Battery-Killinger and Poole.
Umpires-Simon and Gardner.
At Butler, April 2, 1915.

COURSE OF STUDY.
During the past winter the County Superintendent. aided by the Dis-
trict Superintendents, drew up a minimum course of study for the Elementary
Schools of Williams County. This Course of Study will be published by the
County Board of Education. The course is thorough and will meet the needs
of the Elementary Schools of the County. This course will be followed in
the grades of the Edgerton Schools.
Each High School works out its own course of study, but must meet
certain minimum requirements given by the Superintendent of Public Instruc-
tion of the State of Ohio.
There are many things which might be placed in a course of study, but
just what is best is not so easy to decide. One thing, however, is certaing no
course of study should be made too rigid. Some selection should bc left to
the student. All students will not enter the same vocationsg therefore what
will be helpful to one may not be to another.
At present we hear much about "Industrial Education." Agriculture,
Manual Training and Domestic Science are becoming important factors in
our system of education. These subjects should not be taken up to the ex-
clusion of some of the fundamentals, but should be offered to those students
desiring them. I '
'With this in view, Manual Training and Sewing have been introduced
into the first year high school. The work this year was not extensive, but it
is to be hoped that it will grow and a more extensive course may be offered.
During the past year the following Course of Study has been offered to
the students of the Edgerton High School:
Latin or Botany.
Physical Geography QM yearj.
Physiology CM yearj.
Manual Training, for the boys, Xt day a week.
Sewing, for the girls, M day a week.
Latin or Agriculture.
Algebra Qi. yearj.
Geometry QM yearj.
Latin or Bookkeeping.
English History CM yearj.
United States History CM yearl.
Latin, or M year Commercial Arithmetic, M year Review,of one of the
Civics fyg yearj.
Economics CZ, yearl.
Believing that a Lecture Course is helpful to a community, the teachers
of the public schools bought a course, shortly after the opening of school. The
course consisted of six numbers, as follows: The International Entertainers,
Count Alexander Lochwitzky, The University Girls, Charles Egbert Grant,
The Ben Hur Singers and Players, and McCormick and Bronte.
Although there were six numbers, season tickets sold at the usual price,
one dollar. fi All of the numbers, with the exception of the last. have been
rendered. The numbers have been splendid, each person being an artist in
his line. There seems to be almost universal satisfaction on the part of the
patrons of the course. It is to be hoped that another and a better course may
be offered next year. Let the good work go on.

An old negro had a worthless son who had married secretly. The old

Prof. Heer says that in tuning up a trombone with a piano, it is neces-
sary to eliminate all vibrations.
No. Prof., those are not vibrations of which you speak. It takes vibra-
tions to make any tone at all, viz.: for middle C it requires 512 vibrations per
second. Nlfhat you were thinking of, was beats. Then again, we think you
are well enough acquainted with dead beats to distinguish the clilference.
Prof. also says that a moving picture show is an apparatus which causes
vibrations of the heart and that said vibrations are usually more intensive at
the end of the show.

Miss Kramer says, "The best way to get anything done is to do it your-
self." That sounds good as far as it goes, but there are some things we cannot
do for ourselves, as well as some one else. For instance, Miss K. will never
be permitted to marry herself. The ministers have all those jobs clinched.

were behind beforeg you are first at last."
