%he Edison Wizard 19 2 7 PUBLISHED BY THE June ’27 Senior Class oj Edison High School MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. VOLUME FOURDEDICATION O Thomas Alva Edison whose name we have the honor to bear, whose inventions have to such a great extent furthered the economic productivity and the comforts of this civilization, and whose life is an inspiration to us, we respectfully dedicate the 1927 Wizard.F O REWORD ITH Mr. Edison’s acquiescence in our plans for the 1927 Wizard, we found the task of presenting the events of the past school year more pleasant. It has been an inspiration to study about Mr. Edison and as we have worked along we have become more and more glad that our school was named for this fine man. We have derived much enjoyment from our work, and the experience has been of great value to us although our product does not come up to our ideals. For the courtesy of permitting us to use pictures of Mr. Edison we wish to thank the Thomas Y. Crowell Co., publishers of Thomas Alva Edison, by Francis A. Jones, Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., publishers of Edison, the Man and His Work, by George S. Bryan, and Underwood and Underwood. Six December 3. 1926. Mr. Earl Swanson, Editor-in-chief, "The 1927 Wizard," Edison High School, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dear young Friend: You are to be congratulated upon your appointment as Editor-in-chief of "The 1927 lizard," as the work and responsibility will give you ample scope for the exercise of your thinking faoulty.

Index on page 156 i c : c 3 m CJ VC I EightI col CO 1 C]Q| 1 do I£gEE338§E3 I rO list Mr. Edison’s inventions or to J give an inclusive outline of his work would be an almost impossible task, since he has applied his time and ability to such a remarkable range of industrial and scientific activity. We attempt merely to suggest their variety, importance, and influence. %8a 8 3 SSS CO CtO I c; CO 1 CO CO i CO NineTHE VOTE RECORDER R. EDISON’S first invention was the vote recorder. Although this device is not in use today, it has done more for humanity than we realize. The vote recorder was an instrument whereby a member of a legislative body, by moving a switch at his desk, could have himself recorded as voting either “aye” or “no.” The “ayes” and “nos” were then automatically added showing in a very short time the vote of the entire body. Mr. Edison was very happy over this invention, as he thought he had a method of “purifying” the ballot, since the device worked perfectly. However, when he tried to introduce it in the United States Congress at Washington, he was disappointed, for the officials there would have nothing to do with it. They said that the device would prevent filibustering, which is a method used to kill undesirable legislation. After this experience Mr. Edison resolved that he would devote his time to inventing only those things for which there is a commercial demand, thus the vote recorder experience has meant a great deal to the world, for it placed the Wizard’s thoughts and energies solely on those inventions for which he thought there was a recognized need. TenTHE INCANDESCENT LIGHT ROMETHEUS, of Greek mythology, was Jupiter’s agent in giving man the valuable and necessary aid of fire; he was the prototype of Mr. Edison, the famous scientific agent of this age, who in 1879 gave man the long-desired, cheap, and non-flickering artificial light. After hundreds of experiments in which he tried fibers and metals, compounds and alloys of endless description, he at last found a clue in carbonized thread. Yet these burned only a few hours, and something better had to be found. Then followed a search for a fibrous material which would prove satisfactory. Men were sent all over the world, from the wilds of Africa to distant China and Japan. A plant was then started to make lamps using a Japanese bamboo as a filament. Electric lighting was not yet a commercial success; there was no practical way of getting current to the houses. However, once again Edison set to work against almost insurmountable difficulties, and the result was the present system, which includes everything from dynamos to insulators. And then, and only then, could Mr. Edison or anyone say “Let there be light,” and by pulling a switch have his words come true. ElevenPHONOGRAPH T has been said that “the phonograph was the result of pure reason based upon a very happy inspiration.” This shows how Mr. Edison brings about an invention. First, he has a very active imagination restricted by sense; second, he applies pure reason to the problem; then, scientifically and systematically he gives the world another labor-saving or joy-giving device. His experiments are nothing like guess work. Everything he does is done with reason, and if he accidentally uncovers some new natural phenomena, he remembers the facts and later uses his knowledge. Thus it was with the phonograph. Mr. Edison imagined the simple device, made a diagram, and had his assistant construct the machine, which consisted of a diaphragm with a needle attached to its center and a wooden cylinder covered by tin-foil revolved by a crank. Mr. Edison spoke “Mary had a little lamb” into the diaphragm and the needle recorded the vibrations on the tin-foil. When he “played” the record later, he heard “Mary had a little lamb” reproduced clearly, but faintly. The phonograph is a simple mechanism, but it took the imagination, reasoning, and faith of a true scientist to produce it. TwelveTHE MOTION PICTURE MACHINE HAT the phonograph has done for the ear the motion picture does for the eye. The idea of reproducing sound by machine was original with Mr. Edison but the motion picture machine has been thought of and suggested since the days of the Greeks. About 1875, a Dr. Marey, of Paris, invented a camera which, through a single lens, could take several pictures per second, and this was as far as the motion picture had advanced at the time that Mr. Edison became interested. The inventor soon found that in order to make a good motion picture machine he would have to learn photography; so with his usual vigor and thoroughness Mr. Edison read and learned all that the books could tell him of the photographic art. Then, through thousands of experiments, he found a sensitive film with which he could take fifty pictures per second and developed successful machines for taking, developing, and projecting the pictures on a screen. When the machines became a success commercially, the Wizard predicted the union of the phonograph and the motion picture to give the illusion of reality. Then, for a time, Mr. Edison worked on color pictures, but left these for more important work. ThirteenINVENTIONS LL the fields of science have advanced through the work of Mr. Edison. He gave the world an efficient, strong, and light storage battery to replace the old type of wasteful, fragile, and heavy cell. His battery was used on a five thousand mile test trip over the roughest roads in the country, but after the test the batteries were found to be uninjured although the autos were wrecks. Mr. Edison made the electric railways a success. The experiments at Menlo Park developed the original ideas of electrically driven cars and made the electric locomotive an efficient means of transportation. The Wizard saved a great deal of money for the telegraph companies by inventing means of sending several messages over the same wire. This reduced the number of wires needed and simplified the work of “connecting the cities with a copper road for speech.” Thomas Alva Edison is an inventor of the highest type. He has an utter disregard for statements which simply say “It can’t be done.” His work is as close to perfection as he possibly can make it. He never gets discouraged, because “failure” in an experiment means greater knowledge to him—he knows one more thing that won’t work. FourteenINVENTIONS HE Wizard of Menlo Park has many triumphs to his credit, but only one of them is used in offensive warfare. When he gave that to the world, he first suggested that it would be useful as a defensive weapon. This invention is a submarine torpedo operated by electricity from shore or ship. This is an excellent weapon, because it is always under control, invisible, and capable of great destruction. Alexander Bell invented a form of telephone which would work, but without Mr. Edison’s improvements, modern commercial telephony would have been impossible. Portland cement is one of the important results of the Wizard’s ten years of work on ore crushing and concentrating plants. Mr. Edison invented many common everyday devices which we see, but he also invented many other machines which are used to manufacture these articles or are used in conjunction with them. When the inventor devises a machine, he makes several others which are used to make the first a success commercially. The Wizard is thorough, accurate, and efficient in his work. It has been said that if necessary, Mr. Edison could go into a field a mile square and select therefrom a perfect blade of grass. FifteenN Milan, Ohio, on February 11, 1847, was born a boy whose life was to have a direct effect on future generations. This boy, Thomas A. Edison, has since become the foremost inventor of the world and has completely changed the aspect of present day industry. When he was a boy, people thought he was “addled,” but this served only to make little “Al,” as he was called, more determined to prove his ability. Except for three months in a public school, Edison received his education from his mother, and his later success was due in a large measure to her influence. At a very early age he showed an inclination toward mechanical and chemical lines. He set up a laboratory in the basement of his home and all his extra money was spent for chemicals for this laboratory. Here he experimented while his mother on the floor above was in constant dread of being blown up. In order to get more money for chemicals, Edison became a newsboy on a train. One day as he stood on the train platform talking to the station agent, the agent’s daughter, who was playing nearby, wandered on to the railroad tracks. Edison, always on the alert, saw her and at the same time he became aware of an approaching train. Rushing to her he succeeded in snatching her from the path of the oncoming locomotive although he himself was knocked down. In appreciation of the saving of his daughter, the station agent suggested that he teach Edison telegraphy, and of course, Edison accepted the offer gladly. Sixteen The words "Open Sesame" accomplished less when they opened the door to the jewel-filled cave, for the fabled Arabian than a light pull on the door of this familiar cask of wealth does for determined youth. for behind these ivory doors with golden handles stand Knowledge, Health, and Happiness. SeventeenTHE EDISON WIZARD Alos, dear love, cannot lack thee two hours! Eighteen THE EDISON WIZARD THE W I Z A EDISON HIGH SCHOOL Minneapolis, Minnesota September 7, 1926 Dear Mr. Edison: Few great undertakings are entered into without some feelings of fear as to how they will ultimately turn out. and it is with many an inward qualm and considerable trepidation that I realize that I am the first one to write to you in this annual. You are already acquainted with the plan in which we are editing this volume of THE WIZARD, in a series of letters to you telling you about our school and its activities. Each person who is writing is doing his utmost to make his letter interesting and to give you as much information as possible concerning the school which bears your name. Perhaps it would interest you to know that every page of THE W IZARD is a product of Room 312, which is the headquarters for everything connected in any way with our annual. Here it is that the members of the staff and all the helpers congregate day after day to work on this publication. Some arc pounding out words on the typewriter; some arc declaiming bits of nonsense to bring a grin to the editor’s sour face; while I am at this precise moment sitting in a corner seat, clutching my hair frantically in my efforts at concentration. Outside the day is pleasantly cool; the sun is pleasantly warm, and the breeze on my face is pleasantly refreshing. Altogether it is a day conducive to great mental activity. However, my wits are not particularly sharp today. There are those on the staff who think they never are, to tell the truth. You know, Mr. Edison, we have all just relumed from vacation, each one having spent it in his own way. It is a long time since we have heard these halls echoing with footsteps or with the clatter of hanging locker doors, and it takes some time to grow accustomed to these new things. In a few weeks the routine of school days will be running smoothly. New clubs will be forming; old clubs meeting; athletics will soon take on an air of importance, and various entertainments will be taking place. Each year we have been finding new types of amusement. Last year Edison tried a new one. On May 14, 1926, Edison held for the first time in its history a May Fete. It was a coronation ceremony of old England representing the crowning of the king and queen, and an entertainment was given in their honor by their retainers. The King, Jeanette Carlson, and the Queen, Anne Homey, were attended by Heralds, Courtiers, Pages, Ladies-in-waiting, Court Jesters, Warriors, and Old English Dancers. IM NineteenThose participating in this fete were members of the physical education department of our school. It was under the direction of Miss Millicent Hosmer, the physical director. Activities such as the May Fete serve to show the glories of physical development. But what is beauty of body without beauty of mind? A place where a mind can find much improvement is a library. Miss Rhf.a Gibson Library Edison lias a larger fiction library than any other school in the city. Most of these books have been given to the library through voluntary subscriptions in the English classes. Miss Gibson, our librarian, has acquired quite a bank account by collecting fines on over due books. With this she bought a book rack exclusively for encyclopedias. Our average circulation is from six hundred to seven hundred books a day, counting distribution for every period and also including over night draw-outs. When new books are added to tbe library. Miss Gibson does not put them away on the shelves for students to find, but she advertises them so that the students may be well informed of the additions. On the main desk is a little sign that reads, “Have you read this? ’ This serves to awaken the curiosity of the students. Speaking of awakening the curiosity of the students, there are few things in Edison which arouse more interest than the class plays. On the evening of June 11, 1926, the Senior Class presented Shakespeare's refreshing comedy, As You Like It. The cast had prepared for the production in the usual class play class, working diligently throughout the term. The play was selected because of its undying popularity, its charming story, and its variety of characters. It Ticenttjoffers opportunity for a wide range of character study, even the most subordinate roles being quite distinctive. The scene of the play is the terrace before Duke Frederick s palace and the beautiful Forest of Arden, to which delightful place the characters are all drawn for one reason or another. There “like old Robin Hood of England” they live, ennobled by the philosophy of Duke Senior (John Laing), delighted by the lovely forest songs of Amiens (Melvin McLaughlin), amused by the sour eloquence of Jaques (Vernon Fox), and entertained by the whimsical antics of Touchstone (Peter Mankowski). Miss Ruth Tupper English and Class Play The winsome Rosalind, one of Shakespeare’s most bewitching heroines (Marion Stevens), her dainty cousin, Celia (Lyla Grennan), the handsome and romantic Orlando (William Schulze), two real villains, Oliver (Sylvester Fitzpatrick) and Duke Frederick (George Spano), the faithful old servant, Adam (Kenneth Gray), the courtier, LeBeau (Clarence Hedger), Jaques de Boyes (Ben Brainerd), and Charles, the wrestler (Hubert Nelson) we will always remember, and adding to the out-of-door atmosphere, are petite Phebe (Betty Roe I, good-hearted Audrey (Agnes Doherty), the poetic Silvius (Walter Woodruff!, old Corin (Frank Boulet), and the foresters (Donald Vosika and Edith Peebles). Edith's guitar added much to the singing. The production was a delightful one and proved once more that Shakespeare, even in the hands of amateurs, is not only extremely valuable for the performers but very entertaining for the audience. Probably you would be interested to know that Earl Nordquist, an alumnus of Edison, represented the Minneapolis and Minnesota Hi-Ys at the international Y. M. C. A. conference held in Helsingfors, Finland. August 1 to 6. Probably an excerpt from Earl's letter will give you a better idea of his experiences. Twenty-One“Of course the conference was the most interesting part and indeed a great climax for the trip. It was really more than I anticipated because of our differences not only in race and nationality but also in cultural background, habits of mind, and outlook on life. It awakened within us a new interest and made us believe that there must be something after all to this idea of a world friendship. In those six crowded days I talked, slept and ate with boys from twenty-seven different nations. In all there were two hundred and forty boys attending the conference, at which 1,530 delegates from fifty-two nations of the world were present.” The best way to give you particulars on the North woods trip which is a trip given yearly by the Central Avenue Business men to a group of representative Edison boys is to let you read a bit of one of the boys’ diary. “Now that we are safely home again and need no longer cringe before the prowling bears and savage wolves that we had expected to encounter in the Northwoods. the seven of us feel justly proud of our achievement. For a whole, adventurous week we have been permitted to forget all traditions that bound us and roam unrestricted as the waters of spring. But as every river has its course, so we planned in our journey to visit the most profitable and interesting spots of the North. We visited many lakes: Hungry Jack, Bearskin, Duncan, Bose, South, North, Gunfiint, and Saganaga. What we saw there has since filled us with many new thoughts. “We still remember the day when two boys fell into the lake, and when someone ate the apricots that were to have been sauce, the time when we perched ourselves sedately upon the Canadian-United States boundary stakes, the morning of the furious pancake-eating contest, the queer antics of Mike the cow-puncher, and our final farewell to our headquarters on I ake Gunfiint. “With the fish we caught, and the experiences that we enjoyed, it is more than we can do to thank the men who made possible that trip.” It was the V. M. C. A. who gave the boys this trip to the Northwoods. The Student Council too believes in rewarding merit when it can by giving cups, medals, etc. One of the chief sources from which the council derives money to do this is the vaudeville. The North Woods Group Earl Nordouist Twenty-TiroBriny Breezes The annual vaudeville was held on April 14, 1926. From eighteen acts which were entered nine were chosen. These people worked harder in order that their act might he the one chosen as the winner on the big night. Under the direction of Harry Sadler, we had presented to us “Sadler s Sensations.” This act was divided into four groups, “Senior Synco-paters,” “Wild Nell.” “Piccaninny Dance,” and “Ah.” The “Senior Syncopaters” consisted wholly of Senior girls and they kept the audience in peals of laughter all the while their instruments were wailing. “Wild Nell’’ was a real wild west drama while “Ah” was only an everyday shooting which occurs so often in Chicago. The name itself, “Piccaninny Dance,” suggests what that was all about. Gertrude Sokolowski, Helen Lucas, Wynone Malheny, and Isabel Russell contributed “Briny Breezes.” Have you heard of Duke Norman’s Band? I thought so. Well, we had the great fortune of hearing it. “The Edison Harmoni-fiers” also ran. This vocal quartette of Edison boys is one of the glorifying factors in school life. The Dramatic Club gave us a scene which showed what our lunch room should be like. They had it down pat, even to the imitation of Miss Cole. Yes, even the head janitor and the lunch room manager were there. “Homey Co.” reminded the old folks of school days. Don’t you remember way back when they sang “School days, school days—Dear oldfashioned rule days?” “The Trysting Place” was presented by a group of A senior people, and Joe Fazio, Alex Boris, and Peter Kranak gave “A letter from Italy.” Edison is known as one of most musical schools in this city. LaVere Belstrom brought honors to the school last spring when he won first place in the baritone and trombone class of the city-wide contest. In this same contest Earl Andrews and James French brought further awards to Edison when they won second place in the cello and violin contests respectively. Mr. Tuttle decided to have the Glee Club present a cantata since ibis sort of thing had never before been tried at school. The chosen piece was “Melusina.” From two to three hundred voices composed the chorus. Music from Italy TwetityThreeQuite another form of amusement than that derived from the stage is found in athletics. I'he 1926 Baseball team finished the season with a record of four wins, three losses, and one tie game. This is an enviable record because baseball practice was started late. Basketball was occupying the attention of our school when other schools were already practicing the diamond sport.. Seven lettermen and a large squad of other candidates answered Coach Parkin’s call for first practice. The schedule called for eight games, two games with each of four schools. 'I'he teams which Edison played during the season were South, North, Central, and West. At the end of this schedule, Edison’s record read—four games won, three lost, and one tied. Captain Peter Mankowski again captured batting honors with a percentage of .433. Sporne, Cielusak, and Keene were the next highest in the percentage column. Lefty Vanusek lived up to his reputation and pitched excellent ball in every contest. He had an average of eleven strike-outs per game, but poor support at times proved costly. Mike Cielusak played a bang-up game at shortstop. Much credit must be given to other members of the team for the constant chattering and for upholding their Edison fighting spirit. The tennis team of spring 1926 made a creditable showing with a record of four wins and three losses. Prospects seemed bright before the season started with the return of four lettermen to swing their racquets. Carl Nelson, Norman Johnson, and Gordon Anderson were added to make the personnel of the team complete. Orville Olson was probably the outstanding player on the team. He played a sound and consistent game all through the season. Captain McLaughlin showed good form, and in every match he gave his opponent a hard fight. Orville Olson, paired with Delbur Nordin, made a doubles team that was invincible. Norman Johnson created quite a sensation in city tennis circles as he was only a freshman and had the honor of defeating N. Chesler, one of the best players in city high schools. Much credit must be given to the other members of team for their hard playing and upholding the Edison fighting spirit. Joe Tomczyk Earl Dunn Hilton Poole 1 Cjf c-- -II i.S] i ji JI IA ft) rwenty-FourThe outstanding event of the track season was the performance of the mile relay team which held up its honor by winning its race at the Mainline Relays. The time was slower than the record breaking performance of the past year due to a muddy track. In the pole vault. E. Dunn tied with Graham of West for first place. The Tommies also gained a 3rd place in the 880 yard relay. In the Carleton meet, the Wizards made a good showing considering the fact that a few of the star runners were unable to compete. H. Poole and E. Dunn gained first places in the shot pul and pole vault respectively. Edison placed sixth among ten other high schools in the 17th annual state high school track meet at the University Memorial Stadium. Captain E. Dunn led his teammates with a tie for first place in the pole vault, and H. Poole heaved the shot-put to first place. Joe Tomczyk placed fifth in the 100 yard dash, and R. llamann jumped to fourth place in the running broad jump. The city track meet resulted in the best showing Edison has made in that event, fhe trackmen placed fourth and incidently ran up the highest number of points ever gained by Edison in an outdoor meet. E. Dunn captured first place in the pole vault with a leap of eleven feet. II. Poole took second place in the shot-put. Joe Tomczyk sprinted to first place in the 440 yard dash and a fourth in the 100 yard dash. R. llamann placed third in the discus throw and fourth in the running broad jump. Now I have told you what was done in school last spring and when our fall program is settled someone will write you again. Yours sincerely, Tirentt -Fivc»I 013NG EDISON soon became adept as a telegraph operator and his association with the telegraph focused his attention on electricity. In 1802 when he was fifteen years old, he got a job as a train dispatcher in the Port Huron telegraph office at twenty-five dollars a month. This was a night job and as young Edison spent nearly the whole day experimenting at home, he was always very sleepy at night. But here his inventive genius came to his rescue and incidentally lost him his job. As a check on Edison, his employer required him to send the letter “A” in Morse code to the operator in the next town every half hour. Edison rigged up a device which when connected with the alarm clock would send an excellent imitation of the letter “A” over the wires. Having installed this device, Edison proceeded to get his needed rest. All went well until one night the operator tried to call Edison back. He could get no response. Fearing that some great calamity had befallen Edison, he jumped on a handcar and hurried to the young inventor’s office. To his surprise he saw Edison sleeping soundly in a chair while on the table was a queer looking instrument and to add to his amazement, as the alarm struck the hour, the instrument opened the key, sent the letter “A,” and again closed the key. From this job Edison wandered to many others in the middle west until in 1868 he went to Boston where he first turned his thoughts seriously to the held of invention. Twenty-SixEvery worth-while and successful organization or institution has a strong guiding force. At Edison High School that force is our friendly and entirely human principal, Mr. Louis C. Cook, through whose efforts and ability our high school is advancing rapidly to high scholastic, athletic and moral standards. THE EDISON W1ZARP Into an old time vale, Peopled with faery glimmerings. Twenty-EightAll the noise and confusion of getting the school going in the fall is done, and we have settled down to the daily routine. Try to imagine yourself as a pupil here for a day. At 8:25 A. M. you would be expected to he in your seat in the advisory room where your attendance would be checked and the notices for the day read. I he day is divided into six periods of approximately sixty minutes each. At twenty minutes to nine the signal is rung and you would go to your first period class. On assembly days the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades go to the first assembly at the close of the first period, while the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades go to assembly after the second period. Pep meetings, and programs given by various clubs, addresses by excellent speakers—these give us variety. About the third period the average student begins to feel the pangs of hunger. There are three lunch periods, one before and one after fourth period for the Senior school and one between these for the Junior school. In the basement is a large lunch-room seating over six hundred. Hot lunches may be bought at a fair price. Miss Barnard who is the lunch room manager always takes great pains to provide well balanced menus. Vegetables are sold a little under cost while the standard price is charged for confections in order to encourage the students to buy better and more wholesome foods. Fifth and sixth periods run from one to three o’clock when school is dismissed for the day. I think it would be of interest to you to take another trip to the basement to see the heating and ventilating systems. There are three huge furnaces to heat the building and an average of twelve tons of coal daily is consumed. The air is taken from the outside, washed and brought to the correct temperature, and then sent through the building by large fans. At one end of the basement is the boys' gymnasium, and here we see many of the boys practicing various sports. The football season is still in full swing, but the cross country boys are now resting from a strenuous season in which they won the city championship. Tictnttj-SintCron Country Standing—D. Roc, H.

Anderson [October letter continued] Upon sending out the call for cross country candidates at the opening of school. Coach Miller found eight lettermen were returning: Captain Paul Searles, Bud Bauers, Joe Tomczyk, Einar Anderson, Earl Peterson, Norman Moen, George Ro-binson, and Roland Hamann. Edison drew South as its opponent in the first meet which proved to be a runaway as South placed one man. The outcome of the next race against West would decide whether we would be in the running or not so every man was keyed to the finest condition. Edison placed seven men in this race and West placed eight, but our point getters were in better positions than theirs. The score was 71-49. Thus far Edison had not suffered defeat, but our next foe was Roosevelt who was preparing to stage a comeback from its defeat by West. Led by Brackett, Roosevelt’s veteran runner, who nosed Bud Bauers out of first by scant inches and who set a new record, the Roosevelt harriers defeated us by a score of 69-51. Tomczyk, Anderson, Robinson, and Peterson were the other point getters for Edison. In the next meet, October 28, Edison met Central High and defeated them by a score of 101-19. The championship meet involved three schools, Roosevelt, West, and Edison. Twelve men were to run and the first twenty places counted. At the quarter mark only two Edison men were among the ranks of the first twenty, but soon the boys started passing the runners of the other schools, and the old spirit carried Bauers to second place after a gruelling race with the leaders. Paul Searles floundered in fifth place. Tomczyk placed sixth and Earl Peterson, and Moen came in tenth and twelfth. A1 Knutson, Donald Roe, and Howard Sabin placed fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth respectively. “Edison won.” The standings were Edison 88, 1st; Roosevelt 83, 2nd; and West 39, 3rd. Thus ended the 1926 Cross country season, and for the second time the Edison harriers had won the championship. Thirty Paul Searles Joe Tomczyk Paul Searles proved himself a worthy captain. In the hardest part of the race he spurred the team on and inspired them to force ahead, lie was a very consistent runner who could always be depended upon to give his utmost in every race. “Bud” made a wonderful showing and almost every meet found him breaking the tape. He was the most feared man on the team and was considered the Hahn of Edison High. No matter how close the race, Joe could always be counted on to place well up in front. Earl has wonderful form. He is a little fellow, but covers a lot of ground. Herbert Hauers Earl Peterson El N Alt ANDERSON “Ing” was a hard worker who always did his best, and his best was very good. By his consistent placing and winning points here and there, Moen always made the race more serious. Norman Moen Thirtt OneGolf [October letter continuedJ There are sports which do not hold practice near the school, but if we go to Columbia Park, we will see them busily engaged in practice. The golf team, which was newly organized this fall, consisting of Captain Rudolph Olson, George Pierce, Maurice Johnson, Curtis Land berg, and George Mitchell, won a city championship in its first year of active competition. Mr. Janes was appointed coach, and commendation is due him for his help. The team lost its first match to South, but then rallied and spurted through its remaining matches without a setback. North which had not lost a match for two years was defeated twice by the Edison-ians, once in the regular schedule, and again in the play off for the title. Captain Rudolph Olson was the outstanding player on the team. He tied for the low medal honors in the city standings. The other players also performed creditably in all of the matches. The chances of winning the championship again are very bright because all of the players are returning. Maurice Johnson was elected captain for the coming season. Edison W.

One of the finest organizations in Edison is the Campfire Girls, who often carry on their meetings in the out of doors. The law of the Camp Fire gives a rule for a happy and serviceable life. It is: Seek Beauty, Give Service, Pursue Knowledge, Be Trustworthy, Hold on to Health, Glorify Work, Be Happy. From this law the slogan “Give Service” has been derived. The watchword “Wohelo” is made from the first two letters of the words “work,” “health,” and “love.” The “Desire” expresses a real philosophy and religion; the comradeship of friends, the love of man for God, and the desire to share with others the good and beautiful things of the world. These are the ideals of Camp Fire. Camp Fire girls work for honors, which are grouped under seven headings called “Crafts” and each craft has a symbolic color. When an honor has been won, the girl receives a wooden bead, as a record of attainment. The bead is then used as a decoration on the ceremonial gown. Honors may be won in the following crafts; Home Craft. Health Craft. Camp Craft, Nature Craft, Business, Citizenship, and Patriotism. Thus Camp Fire has a program including wholesome activities which naturally engage the interest of enthusiastic girls. file Edison Club has a varied program of outside activities. They have taken many hikes and this winter plan to have tobogganing parties and to sing Christmas carols during the holidays. Miss Seymour has interested the girls in the study of birds, and they hope to make this their hobby in the spring. Thirty-FourJan Orchci.ta Hack Row—F. Swkdback, P. Kbanak. A. Bom . ln. Ti'tilk. B.

It was organized early in the fall of 1922 because of the need for such an organization to play at the Edison parties, the Sunlights, the Senior proms, the banquets, and at the various other social activities of the school. Mr. Tuttle who is the adviser of the orchestra, has been largely responsible for the co-operation of the members in giving their services to the school. The service is largely voluntary. At the class parties a small sum is given the organization for the purpose of buying new music. At the sunlights a nominal sum is distributed among the players. The practicing of the organization is all done outside school hours. The following members have been playing at the parties and dances: Alex Boris, sousaphone; Blair Stiles, saxophone; Fred Swedback, saxophone; Peter Kranak, saxophone; Beulah Bates, piano; George Bena, violin and clarinet; Leroy Jacobson, drums; and Earl Peterson, banjo.

The Silver Triangle which includes eighth, ninth, and tenth grade girls was organized in the fall of nineteen twenty-six. They started out with sixteen members and. now, have grown bit by bit, until they are fifty-five in number. Their purpose is, “To find and give the best.” and their slogan, “To face life squarely.” This club has tried to bring cheer to various types of people who, perhaps, are not as fortunate as they. They have given many entertainments at the Children’s Mission, and also at the Scandinavian Relief Home for the aged.

Thirty-SineDonald Kof.iiler Gustave Brown William Koiian [October letter continued] Each semester there is a student manager of athletics who works in conjunction with Miss Cole and the faculty athletic managers. The boys who are selected for this position are those who have proved themselves thoroughly dependable. Donald Koehler of the class of June, 28, took over the duties of Student Manager of Athletics in September, ’26, and continued throughout the year. He has been faithful and energetic in the discharge of his duties. We appreciate his work. Gustave Brown of the January Class of ‘27 was Student Manager of Athletics in the spring term of ’26 and the fall term of ’26. He was an energetic and faithful worker, present with the various squads and always ready to do the business work. His cheerful manner caused all who came in contact with him to like his work. William Kohan of the Class of June, '27, was Student Manager of Athletics for the spring term of 1927. His work was characterized by thoroughness, a businesslike manner, and enthusiasm, and it has brought credit to him. Here we end the second letter. Sincerely yours, Fort vLuhcVi Room Force Office St.ff Office Forty-OneOON after patenting his vote recorder, Mr. Edison went to New York. The stock ticker had only recently come into use and in those exciting times was used to indicate the constantly fluctuating price of gold. The story is told that on his third day in New York, Mr. Edison was sitting in the Gold office when something went wrong with the whole system of tickers. Mr. Laws, the manager, was nearly frantic when Mr. Edison mildly suggested that he might he able to fix it. “Fix it, fix it! But he quick about it." was all the excited manager could say. Edison calmly walked over to the machine and removed a loose contact spring and immediately the ticker system worked again. As a result of this, Mr. Edison was made manager of the whole plant at a salary of three hundred dollars a month, and with this he was able to set up his first laboratory and begin his life as an inventor. In the laboratory Mr. Edison tries everything, but it is not merely mixing different things in the blind hope that something will come of it. Mis greatest inventions have resulted from careful research and scientific thinking. When he conceives an idea, he first reads all that he can about the subject. Then he lists the experiments to he tried in one of his laboratory note books and then gives the work to some of his assistants to do. Mr. Edison’s remarkable memory enables him to go from one to another and grasp all the details of progression in reference to what has alreadv been done on the experiment.

SCHOOL KIPS ROWDIES AT HOME A foursome Forty-Four THE WIZARD EDISON HIGH SCHOOL Minneapolis, Minnesota December 17, 1926. Dear Mr. Edison: Christmas is not far off! That means to most school students two weeks of vacation. Two weeks of absolute freedom from school books, two weeks in which to indulge in skating, skiing, tobogganing, and the other winter sports which this time of the year invites us to be doing. I have often thought what pleasant things vacations arc. We are feeling rather tired with the daily routine of life; our thoughts seem to take a dreary turn, and we begin to dread each new day and the work which it brings for us to do. Then just as we are becoming almost desperate, vacation is upon us, a happy little time which we may have to ourselves. Then when we go back to our work, we realize that we really do like it. School is one of the places where vacations are especially beneficial. When after a period of rest, we return to our studies again, we are glad and willing to work harder than we have ever worked before. Christmas is one of the happiest times of the year. During these holidays we are busy with shopping and looking at all manner of gifts. The little children are anxious to see Santa Claus. It is pleasant to hear them talk of him, whom they surround with all the glamor that only a child's mind can. Even though we have passed that happy, innocent stage when we hung up our stockings, we enjoy our Christmas vacation. The spirit of these times has penetrated even these school walls, for the windows are all decorated with wreaths of holly and sprigs of mistletoe. But, listen! what is that? It is part of the Glee Club singing carols in the corridors before the door of each classroom.Glee Club Tup Rote—A. Hopper, R. Johnson, S. Bcihi, L. Leyeaque, C. Coma, R. Lundken, R. Lahaon, F.

One of the organizations of which we are especially proud is our school band. After having been in existence for two years it proved its value in many ways. It was organized October 8, 1924, under the direction of Mr. Elmer Sodergren and had a membership of twenty. Now the membership has increased to thirty-six and the band has become one of the best in this city. Under the direction of Mr. Sodergren, the band presented its first concert on December 17, 1926. Special numbers with elaborate scenery accompaniment and a humorous fantasy, “A Morning in Noah’s Ark. ' were given by the band. As another feature of the program Alex Boris and LaVere Belstrom playing the saxophone and baritone respectively acted as soloists and delighted the audience with the interpretations of their selections. “Hot Trombone,” a novelty attraction, was played by the trombone section of the organization. The concert was so well liked that it was repeated again on February 11, 1927, for the school children of the district. The band plans to make this concert an annual affair and also to have alumni who have played in the band join in on one number. In addition to giving this concert for the purpose of raising funds to buy musical instruments, the band has played at various other (unctions. The organization has played at many of the football games, all of the home basketball games, and at many of the school auditoriums. Fort y-SevenJunior Orchestra Top Roto—J. Snyder, B. Reed, G.

Several students of the upper classes have taken advantage of this opportunity for musical instruction and have later played with the Senior Orchestra. The orchestra starting with a membership of thirty-one has now a membership of forty-five. In addition to playing for many of the Junior assemblies the orchestra has played at several other functions. The rehearsals are held daily at the second period in Room 156, and under the direction of Mr. Sodergren have shown marked improvement during the year. The members have worked out a form of honor system whereby they take pride in being able to care for themselves from the time the tardy bell rings until the passing bell and if necessary to run their rehearsals alone.

The Quill and Scroll is a national honor society for high school journalists. It was organized April 10, 1926, at the University of Iowa for the purpose of honoring high school students prominent in journalistic work. Any one elected to this society must be in the upper one-third of his class in scholarship, outstanding in publication work, recommended by publication advisers, and accepted by the national officers. The initiation of the Edison members to this society was held December 16, 1926, in the school auditorium. Mrs. Edith Gillies and Miss Vesta Seaman are the faculty advisers of this organization. Before this time recognition was given to students for scholarship, athletics, leadership, and character, but not for journalistic work. Since the school publications are instrumental in developing the school spirit, one cannot rate the publication honor for those who serve the school in this manner too highly.National Honor Society Top Hour—A.

This Society is a nation-wide organization whose prime purpose is to encourage the development of leadership, scholarship, character, and service. The Epsilon Chapter of Edison High School was organized in 1925. Members are elected to this society each term. All pupils in the 11A, 12B, and 12A grades ranking in the upper twenty-five per cent of their class in scholarship are eligible for election. The faculty grades each student in leadership, character, and service. The upper live per cent of each class is then initiated in the presence of the entire student body. Thus the best of the students are selected and organized, and any Honor Society member can be relied upon to give his best whenever called upon. The symbol of the Honor Society is a torch mounted upon a keystone. Engraved at the sides of the torch are the four letters: C for character; S for scholarship; L for leadership; and S for service. Each student who is elected to the society receives one of these pins. There are one hundred and thirty members in the Epsilon Chapter, twenty-six of them being active.

[December letter continued] Although scholastic attainments are to be valued highly, we must not forget that athletics too are important in the make-up of a school. Although the 1926 football team did not register a very high percentage in the won and lost columns, the eleven did not have a bad season, for the Blue-Gold aggregation fought hard in every game and did not give up until the final gun had sounded. One of the great handicaps which the team had to contend with was the injury jinx, Bruce Wallace, Frank Pelak, “Bud" Keene, and Joe Hermes—all were placed on the injury list some time or other during the season. Nevertheless, the team succeeded in defeating West 6 to 3, for the first victory in eleven starts, and tied Roosevelt 0 to 0 in a hard struggle. When the coach called for football candidates in the fall, fully forty men responded. However, of these only three were letter men; so the coach set to work to build his team around this nucleus. Bud Keene was captain of this year's eleven, and Bertram Wick has been elected to lead the 1927 squad. Since only four lettermen will be lost to the 1927 team, the prospects for the future are very bright. Two members of the squad succeeded in getting on the city newspapers’ mythical elevens. Alex Karkula gained a tackle berth on the Tribune’s All City first team, and Captain Bud Keene captured a place on the Journal's All City second aggregation as center.

I December letter continued] Interest in girls' athletics has declined considerably during the last year. That is, there are fewer girls out for the various sports this season that there were last, but those who have kept up their interests have been very faithful. Jeanette Carlson and Florence Jacobs won their letters for 600 points at the end of the fall term, and Temple Watson, Fuel la Lawrence, and Audrey Johnson won similar letters at the end of the spring term. Helen Lucas won a silver cup with a total of 1030 points. This makes a total of eight girl letter-winners, and six cup winners, counting Margaret Thies and Lucille McGraw who graduated in January.

Ti: thill I December letter continued] Interest and attention was concentrated on field hockey last fall. There were thirteen girls out for this sport—just enough for a full team. They worked with Miss Hosmer as their coach all fall, and later played West. That school had over 120 out for hockey, this gave it a superior team. The score at the end of the half stood 2-0 in favor of West, hut Edison succeeded in making a goal, leaving the score 2-1. During the winter months, volleyball was the center of attraction. There were enough girls out to make four full teams, and competition was keen. Practices were held twice every week in the gym. Finally to “Top things off’ a picked team played a picked team from North high between halves of the Faculty Intra-Mural game, and won, 18-15. Fifty-SixJunior Volley Ball Back Bote J. Fkmcktta. L.

Ko»», I.. Dltoro, [December letter continuedI Many girls won points in hiking last fall under the leadership of Jeanette Carlson, chairman. Every Tuesday a hike of perhaps five miles was taken, and on Saturdays or holidays a longer one, sometimes of fifteen or sixteen miles. Glenwood proved to be a popular “Saturday hike.” During spring hiking Temple Watson was chairman. Basketball and swimming were forced to take a “back seat this year because of a serious lack of interest shown in them. A few girls have been drilling on life saving in order to pass the required test. The Juniors and J. A. C. have accomplished much. They are not permitted to work for points as yet, but regardless of this, there have been candidates out for volley ball, hiking, and even basketball. Now I hear the bell which means that vacation is here. We wish you a merry Christmas, and we will write to you early next year.

EDISON’S attitude toward his genius is expressed well by his reply to a man who tried to flatter his remarkable ability, “Genius is about two percent inspiration and ninety-eight percent perspiration.’’ He is shy and when the talk turns to himself he is very silent but when the talk concerns his work he becomes eloquent and enthusiastically pounds the table to emphasize his arguments. Through an accident in youth Mr. Edison is quite deaf and sometimes when he ignores or interrupts them, people regard as rudeness what is merely peculiarity. An amusing incident is told of a friend who asked Mr. Edison why he did not invent an instrument to help his hearing. Edison explained that if he did this he would be obliged to listen to his wife’s continual talking. He is not very particular about his clothes his idea being comfort rather than show and it is very seldom that he can be persuaded to don evening clothes. For twenty years Mr. Edison had his suits made by the same tailor and in all this time he did not even go near the shop and the tailor used the same measurements on the suits. Outstanding among Edison’s characteristics is his remarkable ability to sleep anywhere at anytime. He often works days at a stretch with very little sleep. At such times he usually remains in the laboratory and lies down on a board or a table, and immediately falls asleep. In a couple of hours he awakens refreshed and ready to go to work.The tireless energy, unfailing enthusiasm, arul hearty support of Miss Ruth F. Cole, assistant principal, are a constant source of inspiration and help both in our scholarship and athletics; while her splendid executive, ability is a main factor in keeping the wheels of Edison's school life running happily. Sixty One Sixty-TicoTHE WIZARD EDISON HIGH SCHOOL Minneapolis, Mmnesota January 28. 1927. Dear Mr. Edison: From history we have learned that men grouped together for companionship and fought with united force against their enemies. In the present day clubs, associations, companies, teams serve this purpose of our lives. Of course everyone who has gone to high school remembers the class organizations and the parties and social events that were given. The January, '27, class assembled and organized in February, 1925. From a profusion of good candidates, William Adamson was chosen to fill the position of president. Mary Guzy was elected vice-president, while John Johnson was made secretary-treasurer. Mrs. McIntyre was chosen as class adviser. The first party was held for the purpose of acquainting the class members with one another. The next party was the annual all-Junior May Pole Frolic. Sixty-Three[January letter continued] A new set of officers was elected when the students assumed their duties at the beginning of the fall term. Karl Dunn was elected president; Leila Odegard, vice-president; Leslie Smith, keeper of the records; Margaret Jader, custodian of the cash box. The first party which was a masquerade was held on Hallowe’en. Everything from colonial dames to clowns appeared and each shone in his separate glory. At the All-Junior Party held in January, hard-time clothes were worn by the class members. The spring term was ushered in with election of officers. The newly made Seniors elected Karl Coldner, president; Paul Searles, vice-president; Nettie Sjoberg, secretary; and Sherman Wallace, treasurer. The class lost no time in starting the social activities, and a joint carnival party was held in March. The second party was held April 23. Towards the end of the term the class followed the dictates of custom and entertained the graduates at a Prom. The decorations were carried out in blue and gold, the school colors. Blue balloons and gold butterflies gave the party an air of gaiety. The January, ‘27, class elected its last officers when they returned to school in September. Leslie Smith was elected president and Jack Adams, vice-president. Margaret Jader was elected treasurer, but left school in order to fill a position. LaVere Belstrom finished the term. Leila Odegard was elected secretary. The last two weeks in January were weeks of intense social activity. The Prom, the Senior banquet, and finally Commencement filled these weeks to overflowing. Then the January, ’27, class left us but they left behind them many good memories of the things they had done. Sixty-FourMr. Ralph Ahlstrom History Beiswexcer.

These boys name their club and select something which they wear as an emblem of membership. They wear this emblem on days of games or on some day that they especially select. The purpose of the club is to assist the teachers, Mr. Cook, and the Student Council whenever called upon and to boost any idea that will benefit the school or the students. One of their main duties is acting as guides in the halls. Many parents come to the school on various occasions and the club members take them to any teacher whom they wish to see. The boys also act as monitors in the library. The club attends athletic games in a unit and their united support of the team helps a great deal to win. The boys of the January, ’27, class chose the name Toreadors when they organized last fall. The costume selected by them was a sash of gold with a cap of blue and gold. They had a great time but they also were one of the best service organizations in the school. The boys felt as brothers often do. If the boys in the next class serve the school as well as the Toreadors did, everyone will shout, “Long live senior clubs.’’ Seventy Four Forum Top Row—J. KookcVi L. t'.uwN. M. (.lUMriot, J.

Its purpose it to promote better self expression and to have a better knowledge of music and literature. file club meets twice a month with its advisers. Miss llolkesvig and Miss O’Brien. The standard maintained by the club is very high, and its members pride themselves on their number who belong to the honor societies. The programs are made up of debates, plays, recitations, solos, and any discussions which are of interest to the members of the club. Each girl tries to participate in every program, and has a chance to find and express her special talent. Parties are held on various occasions. They arc usually held at significant times such a Thanksgiving, Christmas, and St. Patrick’s Day. This gives an opportunity for a profitable and entertaining program. The club pin has the form of a broken column of the ancient Homan Forum, from which the club has taken its name. Serrufy-FivcJunior Ili-Y Back Row- J. Dzcuak, II. Mattice, S. Sciiuijo. J. Schillo.

The Junior Ili-Y of Edison is an organization of hoys of the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades handed together for the purpose of creating, maintaining, and extending high standards of Christian character throughout the school and community. The big aim and achievement of every member is to strive to grow in body, mind, and spirit so as to give the best of service to the home, school, and neighborhood. I he Junior Hi-Y Club of Edison has grown steadily. Its success is due to the spirit of service and co-operation striven for by each member. The ideals of the Junior Hi-Y Club, therefore, are manifested not only once a week at meetings, but spread each day throughout the school by the individual member. The club is assisted in its regular program by seven Senior Hi-Y members, who devote two hours each week to the club in promoting the activities and building the membership into loyal students of Edison High School. The Senior Hi-Y members who have been of real service during the year are: Vincent Enrooth, Melvin Swanson, Donald Tuthill, Clark Snyder, Wallace Peterson, Gustave Brown, and Clifford Dahlgren.

[January letter continued] Edison’s Senior Hi-Y is composed of hoys in the Senior, Junior and Sophomore classes with the definite purpose in mind of “maintaining, creating, and extending throughout Edison High School and community high standards of Christian character.’’ The club has had very interesting programs throughout the past year, and the hopes run high to keep them so for years to come. Meetings are held once a week for the purpose of discussing religious questions and solving the problems of life, fhe plan of leading devotions is to take some outstanding passage from the Bible and have different members of the club discuss the verse according to his interpretation. This plan seems to he very effective as each member has a chance to do service for the club during the year. Of late the club membership has increased greatly, and the interest of the hoys in the club bodes well for its future. The Senior Hi-Y is known around the school and community as a club of service. The services of these hoys constitute a real challenge, not only because of what they are to be, hut also because of their contributions to the solution of the problem of life. Sevenit SevenPilot Mn.

It was organized last fall by fifteen active boys who wished to be of service to the school during the evenings of the class plays, the operas, the commencement exercises, the baccalaureate services, and at the various other functions which take place in the auditorium. The Junior Usher Club was organized this year by a group of Junior High boys. They elected Jack Pearson, president, and chose Mr. Sodergren as their adviser.

Throughout all the city they have become known for their efficiency, and it is with some pride that we say many schools in the city arc imitating their methods. There are two branches of this council, one for the Junior school and one for the Senior school. The Junior Student Council serves the Junior High in the same manner that the Senior Council serves the Senior High. It co-operates with the faculty, teachers, and students and attempts to raise the standards of scholarship, leadership and character. The Junior Council was organized when the students and teachers realized that many rules and regulations could not apply to both sections of the school with the same success. The Junior Council applies to the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. Elections are held at the beginning of each semester, and representatives are apportioned—one for fifty students. All Junior High organizations are represented in this body. Miss Kocken was appointed faculty adviser by Mr. Cook and under the constitution, the members of the council elect two other faculty members. Miss Peterson and M iss Beedle were elected for the year 1926-27. One thing that the Council has done that is especially successful is organizing the Lost ami Found department. Before this was organized, all articles that were found were taken to the office and all lost articles were called for there. The office was busy with innumerable other tasks, however, and could not run the Lost and Found section efficiently. The Junior Council realized this, so they organized this department and appointed a manager. Every few months when a great number of articles accumulate, they are auctioned, and the funds are turned into the council treasury. Eighty■■I Senior Student Council Top Roto— M.

I January letter continued] The Senior Council is the student governing body of Edison High School. It co-operates with the principal and faculty in an attempt to improve conditions around the school. Complaints from the students are lodged with the council where they arc discussed and acted upon. This year, instead of holding a “Better Edison Week," as was formerly done, the council held a “Record Week.’’ The Record had gone into debt and the council felt that they should help to get it on its feet again. Subscriptions were taken and a Matinee Vaudeville was given on the last day of “Record Week." Enough students subscribed to justify the belief that the Record could run financially ami also pay ofT part of its old debt, flic receipts of the vaudeville went a long way in paying some of the creditors. In order to operate efficiently and have funds for its work, the council holds an annual vaudeville made up of school talent. These proceeds, coupled with the returns from sunlights sponsored by the council, last throughout the year. Nowf we are ready to start a new semester. As usual we plan to work harder and get better grades. Therefore I sign this Hopefully yours, Kiffhty OneFTER working almost incessantly for almost three score years, Mr. Edison has in late years occasionally taken a vacation. These vacations have become quite famous because they consisted of camping trips in company with Mr. Ford, Mr. Firestone, and Mr. Burroughs. On the death of Mr. Burroughs, President Harding joined the party. Since his death various men have been invited. The party shunned publicity, trying to get away from the throngs as much as possible. News of their coming always preceded them, however, and they would be constantly met by bands and committees of welcome. At such times they would be as pleasant as possible and probably Mr. Ford or Mr. Firestone would make a short speech. Although each of these men was accustomed to having many men under his control, yet they all showed that trait which is probably an accompaniment of greatness—the ability to adjust themselves to their associates. There was a tender feeling among the rest of the party in regard to Mr. Burroughs, and he was given the scat of preference at all occasions. Mr. Ford would always lament over the waste in water power and would lay plans to build dams and power houses. A member of the parly said that Mr. Edison was the most widely informed man he had ever met; that there was not a subject on which the great inventor could not talk with intelligent interest. He also had a highly developed sense of humor and often delighted bis companions with his wise and witty sayings.

Dear Mr. Edison: Edison High is a comparatively new school. We are only in our fifth year; yet we can hardly he called a child, as a live year old is, for we have developed quite rapidly. I can remember quite well when Edison first was built. When the building was ready to he started, a crowd of eager children came to watch the big steam shovel begin the excavating. As each brick of the structure was laid, they watched it grow into the school which they would one day occupy. It seemed quite a colossal building to me at first, and I feared on the day I first entered that 1 should be quite lost among its spacious halls. But the mind grows accustomed to new surroundings, and soon the school was peopled with familiar things. Gradually its occupants began to think of ways to beautify and better it. One of the first steps was to improve its outward appearance by planting grass and shrubbery around its borders. From the beginning scholarship was high, and its has been advancing every semester, until now our standards of scholarship are as high as those of any other high school in the city. Many clubs have sprung up and grown since Edison’s first year. There is at present an organization to cover any field of interest that could be thought of. There are clubs for debating, for the study of art and literature, for the furtherance of musical talent, for business and commercial activities. No school would be complete without its athletics. Edison has carried off a number of trophies since it first entered into competition with other schools. We have not, to be sure, won the championship at every meet, but our teams have always stood for fair play, honor, and good sportsmanship. Last year Edison's basketball team won the twin city championship. Eighty-FiveBasketball Back Row— D. Koehler, A. Kune. C. Mattice, E. Robinson, R. PmonKt. T. Storne, W. Covrtney. Mb. Parkins.

The team made a good showing and was considered as the dark horse for the title. Edison lost out in the second round of the elimination tournament held at the Kenwood Armory. This year's championship was decided under a new plan. The teams were divided into twro districts, the North and South districts. The North district which was composed of Edison, South, North, Marshall had the stronger teams, while Central, Roosevelt, West and Washburn made up the other district. After the regular schedule was completed, a tournament was held at Kenwood Armory. Central of the South district came through the regular schedule without a loss, but they lost the first game of the tournament to the hard hitting Edison cagers. Coach Parkins developed a very good team, which had no individual stars. The team used the short pass combinations, and worked very smoothly. Captain Frank Pelak won a berth on the Journal’s All-Star team, and received the additional honor of being captain of the Tribune’s All-Star team. Alex Karkula won the center position on the Journal team, and on the Tribune’s second team. William “Bud” Keene won a berth on the Journal’s second team. Coach Parkins has developed some promising men for the coming season. Mr. Ray Parkins Physical Training Eighty-SixGym Team Hack Rote— P. Rkinda. E. Sandatrom, F. Brown, G. King, M. Champacne.

[February letter continued] Edison has developed very rapidly in athletics. It not only has teams in the major sports but in other phases of athletics as well. The 1927 gymnastic team has proved itself an excellent team by winning second place in the Northwestern meet. Under the direction of coach Miller, the team has worked faithfully and hard to bring honor to the school. At the Gym nite performance the team put on several demonstrations. In the Northwestern meet, Edison was nosed out by one-quarter points by Roosevelt. Because of his outstanding ability, Ray Ptak was forced to compete in a higher class and his points did not count in our total, otherwise Edison would have won first place. Edison took second place in the City Gym Meet when they were defeated by North by a few points. Zwaska garnered 271.50 points to win fourth place in the city meet. Brinda was awarded a medal for being the ablest man on the horse in the city. Ptak took all honors in class “B” division for which he was awarded the only gold medal given in the class. For the school competition in the meet Karlson was best on parallel bars and tumbling and King on rings. In the coming season the team should be best in the city.

[February letter continued] Although not champions the puck?ters had a successful season of 1926-27. It was the co-operation and the coaching ability of Mr. Hendricks that made success possible. For the second successive time the play off for the championship was lost to West. It was a fighting game, and our hoys never gave up until the final whistle. The fighting spirit combined with their fair sportsmanship gave the Fdison team a reputation of worthy praise. Captain Clarence Sporre won berth on the Minneapolis Tribune's Mythical All-City second team. Clarence played well besides being a capable leader. James Feeney and Walter Heard received honorable mention which they well deserved. Clarence Sporre was again elected captain for the 1927-28 hockey team. The team next year will be much lighter, but it will not be a handicap to a fighting team. Mr. George Hendricks History Eighty-EightTHE EDISON WIZARD £ t£ 27„ Swimming Back Row—H. Ray. R. C«ow, R.

The 1927 aquatic team made one of the best showings when they defeated the West team in the finals to win the championship. The swimming team led by Captain Lucien “Babe' Houle, were undefeated throughout the season. The scores for the first round were: Edison 47, South 19; Edison 41. Central 27; Edison 40, West 28. The second round stood: Edison 60, South 9; Edison 50, Central 18; Edison 42, West 27. Credit must be given to Loyd Boyce of John Ryan Baths, who is the freshman coach of the University of Minnesota, for his work in organizing this team. Rollin Day was the mainstay of the team, and was the high scorer for the Edison squad with a total of 63% points.

Those eligible for active membership must have completed two years of Latin or must be taking SI or S2 Latin at the time. Associate membership is extended to all other Latin students.

The students who have taken or are taking botany and biology and who are especially interested in nature work are eligible for membership. This society’s purpose is to further the interest of the members in nature lore. Many field trips are taken every term, and speakers from different horticultural societies often entertain at the club meetings. One of the features of this year’s club work was the entertaining of the Carl Linnaeus Club of South High school. Meetings are held every two weeks with Mr. Benner the adviser of the club.

Many of the young men and women today have chosen as their means of making a living office work. The club representative of these practical business students is the Commercial Club. This Club was organized in the spring of 1925 by girls of the eleventh and twelfth grades, who wished to have a better knowledge of business than it is possible to gain through class work alone. Although the club is primarily a business club, it also has entertainment programs and parties. On special occasions the club is honored by speakers who are actively engaged in business. Events that have been especially interesting have been demonstrations by Shorthand speed writers. At the present time the membership numbers about fifty girls. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. The insignia of the club is a triangular shaped pin with the initials E. C. C., representing Edison Commercial Club. I will sign this with what the mere outsider is the traditional business ending. Yours truly, Miss Effie Turner Commercial Work V? an { !pJ?

Ninety-Five 1 THE EDISON WIZARp JL KEEK legends tell the story of Prometheus, the fire hringer. Zeus was dissatisfied with the race of men on the earth and was planning to displace them with a superior race. Prometheus frustrated his plans by stealing lire from the hearth of Zeus and bringing it to the earth. He then instructed the people in its use. On the occasion of Mr. Edison’s seventy-fifth birthday when asked for his philosophy of life Mr. Edison replied, “Work. Bringing out the secrets of nature and applying them for the happiness of man.” This is ex- actly what he has done. Like Prometheus of old, he has taken the secrets of nature from her very hearth and presented them to men. Mr. Edison is one of the few men in history who has devoted his entire life to the work of inventing, hut only time will show of what inestimable value his life has been.3n iHemoriam Y T T IRVING MAUREN GORDON NELSON VALENTINE GAWLIK KERMIT KNUTSON ( Ninety-Seven!

Dear Mr. Edison: There is a couplet which runs: “Oh, what a commotion under the ground, When March calls, ‘Ho, there, ho!' ” This is characteristic not only of the roots and flowers as they push upward through the soil but also of school life, for in March, activities, glad to be free from the snowy winter months, seem to assume new life. As soon as the spring is here, we who are Seniors must begin to think of graduating and of leaving our school days behind us. How well do the present graduates remember that day in September. 1925, when, having been invested with the dignified title of Juniors and endowed with the privilege of organizing as a class, we chose Miss Fleming as our adviser; Harriet Grafenstatt, president; Earl Friend, vice-president; May Anderson, secretary; and Alex Boris, treasurer. In 1922 when Edison stood a new and untenanted building, a flood of students entered, among whom were many of the June ’27 class, then but diminutive eighth graders, girls in pigtails, boys in short pants. The next year these pioneers were joined by freshmen entering from the neighboring grade schools, and together these began their high school career. Sinelf Sine[March letter continued] After the election of officers, plans for a plain dress party were immediately started, and the class had its first taste of the social life of high school. 1 he second social event was a hard time party to which both A and B Juniors came. Patched breeches, torn skirts, and tongueless shoes made their appearance in great profusion. The hard times, however, did not affect the supply of food, for we were refreshed with brown bread and beans. It was during these two parties that many novices in the art of dancing took courage and advanced to the floor. Result: those who so cautiously took their first steps then are now quite graceful dancers. file officers elected in January were Lyle Dow, William Keene, John Zcleniak, and Arthur Viken, president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer respectively. The first party of this term came near St. Patrick’s Day, and in recognition of it, this was an Irish affair, 'file All-Junior May Day Frolic came next. There was the traditional May Pole dance, as well as a chosen king and queen, who were crowned with flowery garlands. Truly Cray’s line, “We frolic while ’tis May,” could have been applied to us that pleasant spring evening. June and vacation were soon upon us, and when we returned in September again, we were Seniors. There was a meeting held which resulted in the election of Melvin Swanson as president, Marvin Johnson as vice-president, Catherine Deutscher as secretary, and Vincent Enrooth as treasurer. As our former adviser did not return to Edison that year, we chose Miss Donovan to fill her place. The social activities of this year began with a plain dress party. The January graduates donned hick dress and joined the June ’27 class at the next affair. Many a face was shaded by large, straw farmer hats, and many a good leg encased in blue overalls, while in our midst moved a mysterious Spanish senorita, who later turned out to be none other than Mr. Dean, art teacher. The final event of this semester was the Senior prom, given in honor of the January graduating class. As we entered the gym. we were carried to a veritable fairyland, a Japanese garden in cherry blossom time. Pink sprigs were twined on the walls and from far back in a corner behind a screen of blooms came the strains of music. From the center was suspended a gorgeous lantern, while from the sides above the baskets of chrysanthemums, blinked myriad Japanese lights. We sipped something in the form of punch that tasted like Jove’s nectar, so sweet was it. Light hearts make light feet, and so with dancing we sped the evening, the one shadow being that it was the last time we would make merry with our friends in the January ’27 class. At the beginning of the new term we occupied “Senior alley ' and moved into 314. Two officers were re-elected, Melvin Swanson president and V incent Enrooth treasurer, while Harriet Grafenstatt became our new vice-president and Katherine Smith our secretary. We held two class parties, one with the B Seniors. Then on a certain Tuesday night in June came the banquet; the prom followed on Wednesday, and then came commencement, the pinnacle of high school glory. This is the largest class that has yet graduated from Edison, and as we leave our school behind, we hope that as kind memories of us will remain here as those which we shall take away.

We can’t carry on any business if we have to compete against that noise.” Thus began Earl Swanson, erstwhile chairman of the would-be boys’ club at the first irregular meeting. Nominations for the officers were in order. Various boys who wished to be revenged on certain members of the club nominated their foemen. When the smoke of battle had cleared away, Sherman Wallace had been elected president, Herbert Bauers vice-president, and Stanley Hilliard secretary-treasurer. At the next meeting insignia for the club were discussed. Stanley Sorenson, the boy wonder of Edison, suggested derbies and monocles and with that the name of Darby Derbies. His plan met with success, and in less time than it takes to read three Shakespeare plays, the sign of the club was derbies and monocles. The name. Darby Derbies, was carried through in the same motion. At the same meeting derby day was planned. At last it arrived. Much to the chagrin of the officers and committee men, they had to shed their coats for the day. Aside from trying to ascertain how really nice so and so looks in a derby, this club was organized for the purpose of doing school service work. We dare say that with them and the girls’ club together, we should soon notice a marked improvement in the school. One Hundred TwentySenior Girl ' Club Back Rou- L, Ann is, A. Fibiicr, L.

[March letter continuedJ The Senior girls had long regarded with an eye of envy the sashes, hats, canes, or caps which the boys wore as insignia on certain days. Why the girls had never claimed the same privilege of organizing as a club and wearing some distinctive article of dress is a deep and impenetrable mystery; certainly they had wished to have one. Early in the term beginning in January the girls of the present graduating class decided to start the club. Jeanette Nelson was elected president and Florence Cich, vice-president at the first meeting. There is besides these officers a committee of ten who carry on most of its executive work. The next thing to be decided upon was an emblem. Many were suggested, and as many rejected as impractical, too expensive, or not well liked. It appeared as though a suitable one would never be decided upon. At last someone found a store where little black high hats could be bought at a reasonable price. Straightway these became the insignia, and the girls became the High-Hatters. Whether or not they intend to high hat people in the literal sense of the word has not yet been definitely decided. The purpose of this club is to do school service work. We dare not say in just so many words what they have accomplished, for girls know that boys are jealous of praise, but we can say that together they seem to be succeeding very well.

One of the chief spring sports is track. Coach Miller started the 1927 track season with only four lettermcn as a basis for a winning team. From a large squad of candidates he discovered some valuable material, which is expected to show up well in the various meets. The tracksters are entered in the same meets as last year, namely: Hamline Relay Carnival on May 7, Carleton Meet on May 14, State Meet on May 21, and the City Meet on May 28. Coach Miller predicts that the Tommies will make a good showing in the respective meets. The track events had the monopoly on the best performers, while the field events were somewhat weak. Captain-elect Tomczyk showed good form in practice and is counted upon to garner some first places in the dashes. Edison will be well represented in the dashes with Tomczyk. He Coursey, Krueger, and Husak as the entrees. The mile relay team that has won the event of the Hamline Relays for the last two years is ready to uphold its honor. Searles, Peterson, Rooney, and Lindstrom are showing good form in the hurdle events. Tuthill, Enrooth, and Hammond are running tin quarter-mile in fast time. E. Anderson. Bauers, and Kelsey can give good demonstrations on how to run the half mile. The field events, the weak half of the team, has a few commendable performers. Hammond is expected to ring in points in the running broad jump, while Lindstrom, Moen, and Kreher are jumping to new heights in the high jump. Ptak takes care of the weight events.

The students of Edison always await impatiently the first baseball game. Pre-season dope made Edison a serious contender for championship honors in the race for top-rung honors. Fifty candidates answered Coach Parkins’ call for the initial practice. Out of this number there were seven lettermen ready to don last year's togs. Practice received an early start and began in earnest because the basketball schedule ended so abruptly. The lettermen that reported were Captain-elect Albin Kline, second base; Donald Ingerson, first base; Bay Petroske, third base; William Keene, catcher; John Vanusek, pitcher; Tony Spornc, left field; and Fat Mattice, right field. The second team men that answered the call were Wayne Courtney, Peter Verio, Mike Kenjerski, Stephen Savannich, and Ray Kauth. Donald Koehler and Alex Karkula looked the most promising of the new men. Peterson and Mikulak were among the most prominent of the freshman aspirants for positions. With this list of players, all positions will be well taken care of. With Bud Keene on the receiving end of Lefty Vanusek’s slants, a good battery is assured. Captain-elect Kline, Bay Petroske, and Tex Ingerson will help make a first class infield for the Tommies. The outfield has a number of likeable men for the respective positions. If the 1927 team lacks anything, it will have plenty of fight, pep, and chatter. One Hundred Twenty-ThreeThe Record Rack Rom— L. Lindquist, K. Neuman, E. Jorcenson. S. Milliard, F. Pelak, R. Ray, G.

[March letter continuedJ The prowess of our teams is well known through the sports page of our school paper, the EDISON RECORD. We are rather proud of our paper, for it has developed very rapidly. Four years ago last January as the students began to clamor for a paper, a call was issued for voluntary services to be given towards the editing of one. The first news staff numbered in all but eleven members, and of these not one bad had any training. Many did not even know that in a news story the principal facts should come first. Thus totally unfamiliar with their work, they plunged in, but as persistent and conscientious effort is always rewarded, they succeeded. The first newspaper was about twice the size of an ordinary sheet of theme paper, a small weekly with but five columns, written on paper which had a curious tar smell. Gradually it grew into a paper nineteen inches long. At present it is larger than it has ever been, being a regular seven column paper, the size of any other daily except in its number of pages.

' roared the editor, and with an obsequious how and an "aye, aye, sir ' on the tip of my tongue, I scurried from the fury of his glance to a corner of the room, where I was soon gnawing my pencil in the agonies of meditation. That was some hours ago, but 1 expect that it is not the last injunction of the sort which will be received, for under the strain of these last hectic days just before THE WIZARD goes to press, nerves are strung at a high tension. On April eighth the product of many days’ work goes to be printed, and the greatest part of the staff’s job will end. It is no mean task to edit a high school annual. For a long time the workers have been giving much effort to it, staying many hours after school, trying to make this edition of THE WIZARD the best ever published. There arc not so very many members of the staff, but everyone has worked well, and when the finished product comes out, we hope it will be the fulfillment of all the students could have wished it to be.

[March letter continued] Besides tin school paper and annual, we also have a magazine. THE GLEAM is the name of Edison’s literary publication, which is put out once a term. Each semester all the little glimmerings of prose and poetry written by the students are put into one magazine, and the product, so we fondly believe, is one bright GLEAM. That there is opportunity to have one’s “works" printed in such a fashion affords a great stimulus to literary genius, for who so proud that he disdains the approbation of the multitudes and does not like to see his name in print? The work of editing this magazine falls to the Gleam class, which is made up of those pupils who have during their high school terms showed marked ability in English. The class is divided into various departments, the story editors, the poetry editors, and the essay editors. From all the English classes in Edison, from 7B to 12A, the written compositions are taken. It is a great deal of work to collect all this material, still more of a task to read it and classify it, and yet more to choose what is best and compile it into one book. Many types of literature are represented in THE GLEAM: here is a familiar essay; on this page is a story of school life; there is a wild thriller, the product of someone’s heated imagination; while on this page we find a hit of lilting verse. Have we forgotten to mention humor? Indeed, we should not, for it forms quite an important part of the magazine. One Hundred Twenty-SixBig Sitter Club Back Roto—L. Anni , B. Akkxrman. A. J nls. M.

[March letter continued] Nearly every new semester the senior "iris have formed themselves into some sort of club for the purpose of doing big sister work, but usually when the class graduated, the club disappeared with them. This term, however, a society which hopes to make itself a permanent institution at Edison was organized under the name of “Magna Soror.” the Latin words for big sister. All A Senior girls may be members, and as the close of the term draws near, the B Seniors are given membership. Thus the club will endure, each class handing the work down to the following one. Its purpose is to help the freshmen escape those terrifying moments which come to everyone who finds himself in totally strange surroundings and amid a crowd of people whom he does not know. Each Senior girl is given a little sister from amongst the newcomers. Her duty is to acquaint her with the building, our customs, and to help her feel at ease here. In order to make her become acquainted with the other girls of the school, a party is held at the beginning of the year by the big sisters to complete the initiation of the freshmen into high school life. All through the semester the older girl watches over the younger, encouraging her to work in her lessons, helping her out of difficulties, and seeing that she gets as much as possible and gives as much as possible at school. A file of the little sisters is kept, thus making a permanent record of what is being done. The work is indeed a commendable one, for a love for Edison will be instilled in the students while they are yet freshmen, and from the start they will have a desire to uphold its fine standards and traditions and to keep on building it a liner school.

[March Idler continued) Towards the close of the term there always appears in our bulletin an announcement to this effect: “Tryouts for class play class will be held in auditorium on such and such a date immediately after school.” Then with fast beating hearts and high hopes all aspirants to this place deliver with their greatest fervor some small speech by which they may be judged. From ibis group those with the greatest ability are chosen to compose the class, the usual number being thirty, half boys and half girls. This class studies some chosen play and at the end of the semester presents it. Fdison has achieved something of a reputation for the good quality of the plays which it puts on. The play to be presented this June is Shakespeare’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. As the term beginning in January is less broken into by vacations than is the September term, the class usually attempts a Shakespeare play which needs more continued work and study than do most others. We have now come to the end of the year. We who have worked on the book are now graduating. Reluctantly we conclude our work and our letters.

Business life is broad enough to give ample opportunity for the achievement of the greatest of ambitions. Opportunities, however, mean nothing to the unprepared—for opportunity is merely READINESS FOR THE OCCASION. The success of our school depends absolutely upon the success of our graduates. It is because of their success we have the largest business school in the TWIN CITIES. They send us most of our new student body.
