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- piness personified. FRANK HADDIX. 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- ture. CLEO WALLACE. 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 staff. MARVEL BOOS. 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. r 4 PAULINE MAST. 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. EARL CHILCOTE. "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. WAYVA IRISH. Vlayva is one of the class who Com- menced school here twelve years algo. She has been a diligent student. She is one of the jolliest and most willing mem- bers of the class. She is talented in music and sings alto in the High School quar- tCt. VERNA GABRIEL. Verna is endowed with a natural ability for drawing and it is her one desire to study this art after leaving the E. H. S. No matter what she tries, she is sure to succeed, as is shown by her past etlforts in the High School. Her most prominent characteristics are composure and earn- cstness. 'HOMER HOUCK. Homer is the class cartoonist. Ol course, one with that name has to be great, altho' no babbling crowds his praise repeat, his services have been val- uable above estimation. "Artists are born, not made." FRANCES BELL. Fanny is a mixture of smiles and tears. lYhen she is good she is very good, but when she is bad fOh, horrors! She wishes to study Domestic Science and teach. This is not an advertisement for a hus- band, because she doesn't like the boys. LEONA ROBERTS. Leona is one of the few real blondes SX' who doesnt use peroxide. She is an cellent student. due to that wonderful art of bluffing, in which she is skilled. She has never expressed her future plans, but she intends taking a trip to Califore nia with her fatherlil. ALICE BARNES. Alice is our most studious and observ ant classmate. As Latin is her specialty no doubt in a few years she will be teach- ing unruly youngsters to amo, amas amat. SAMUEL MOWRY. Samuel has walked many miles to Ob- tain his start in the educational world. Altho' Sam is an agriculturist, he is very poetical and we expect him to follow in the footsteps of Robert Burns. HAZEL POORMAN. Hazel receives her mail by the rural free delivery. She is a quiet, serious girl, never neg- lecting her studieseno matter how dis- tasteful. She is very careful about jump- ing at conclusions, and her decisions are unquestionable. ROWENA CLAY. Rowena is the 'langelicesf' one among us-providing there is such a word. VVe can't describe her and do her justice, but if Tennyson were here he could write yards and yards of poetry al wut her. 1 l SENIOR DEPARTMENT. ...l1 President .... ............. lN 'label Smith Secretary ......... ....

Greetings: It is with greatest pleasure that I send to you this word of good cheer. 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- ories. 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, ROSS D. ROSENBERGER.

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."

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 society. 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 well. 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 consent. 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 three days. 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. 4 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 Germany. 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 much progress. 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. CK THE SURPRISE. 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 her journey. 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," he bawled. 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 have." "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 nheeks. "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. LOUISE RICKERSON. 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 Seniors. ' 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. noise was they saw, a solitary found his 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 the instructor. 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. THE BOYS. QXVith Apologies to O.

ETHEL VVEBER- 18 REMEMBRANCE. 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."

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. BASE BALL. 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.

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.

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: Freshman. Latin or Botany. Algebra. Physical Geography QM yearj. Physiology CM yearj. English. Manual Training, for the boys, Xt day a week. Sewing, for the girls, M day a week. Sophomore. Latin or Agriculture. General History. Algebra Qi. yearj. Geometry QM yearj. English. Junior. Latin or Bookkeeping. English History CM yearj. United States History CM yearl. Geometry. English. Senior. Latin, or M year Commercial Arithmetic, M year Review,of one of the Common Branches. Physics. Civics fyg yearj. Economics CZ, yearl. English. LECTURE COURSE. 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. CALENDAR. September. School again. Miss Kramer takes a settled position upon the platform.

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.
