The Elders Ridge
Pastor of the Elders Ridge Church, a man of
great worth and sterling character, who has so
faithfully devoted himself to his work in our com-
muuity, so loyally supported our school and so
earnestly helped us on all occasions, we, the Class
of 1923, dedicate this, our Year Book.
Fellow students and friends, we present the IQ23
Elrivo to you, hoping it will meet with your ap-
The work which this book contains is the result
of the combined efforts of the Seniors and Faculty,
who have given many helpful ideas and corrections
to the work handed in.
We have tried to omit none of the happenings
of the past year, especially of the humorous na-
tureg and if the perusal of it recalls pleasant mem-
ories to the minds of our friends, the work of the
staff will not have been in vain.
VVhether or not our efforts have been successful,
we leave you to judge.

MIRIAM FLORENCE BAKER
A brown head bobbing up and down,
an ear-to-oar grin, a vicious peddling
of the old piano accelerator and you
have "Mim"! She can take a piano-
any old box with two strings and Pl
keyboard-and make you think and feel
that it is a whole Alexander Ragtime
Band. Yes, siree! But to her sparkling
brown eyes and coquettish smile only
tells us that she is our true friend. Her
ambition is to work an electric light
"XVhen weary grows life's last long
Think of 'Mini' and her smile."
JAMES PAUL COULTEIR.
West Lebanon, Pa.
Basketball III, IV.
Here is the funny man of our class,
folks! This is the fellow who needs no
introduction. No one will ever get lione-
some around "Murphy", noted for his
wise and wit-ty sayings. His ambition
is to become a porter in a hotel in Du-
Bois Q?J. Perhaps his greatest char-
acteristic is his devotion to his letters.
'VVe have found him a very efficient
manager of the boys' basketball team.
VVe feel sure that he will prove himself
just as emicent a manager in other
"Don't take life too seriously
Or you will never come out alive".
IIULA ALMA BUCKI-EY
Basketball II, III, IV.
Lula Buckley, better known to most
of the class as "Buckley" is famous for
her ever-ready wit and good humor. VVe
are truly glad that she left Apollo and
came to E.R.V.S. in her Sophomore year,
for we feel that we would have missed
a girl worth while from our class if
she had not come. Her ambition is to
become a director of athletics, and judg-
ing from what we have seen oi' htr in
this field we know she will be a suc-
cess. Her willingness to help others out
of a difficult place has won her a place
in many hearts. E.R.V.S. will miss her
when she leaves.
"True as a needle to the pole
Or as the dial to the sun".
HARRY ISAIAH DUNMIRE
Basketball III, IV.
This genial, unassuming fellow is the
President of our class. Harry has many
characteristics, but the most outstand-
inig is his athletic ability. His ambi-
tion is to kill "sparrows" in Sparrows-
point, Maryland. Harry is sincere, a
good friend, and has hopes of some day
msaking a good husband. However, that
is for the future to decide C?J. NVe all
wish him success in whatever profes-
sion he may choose.
"Dunmire" is our athlete who can't be
From the top of his head to the soles
of his feet."
ELLA MARIE HOOD
Basketball III, IV.
It' you hear a shuflle ot' feet and an
extremely heavy tread you will know
it's "Marie". She was always noted for
her good c-ooking. She expects to take
a course in Domestic Science at College,
and then we'll Kind her a qualilied teach-
'-r. Marie has shown her ability as 21
student in the arithmetic class. She is
also an athlete twould you believe it'.'J
of no mean ability, to see her partici-
pate in a game ot basketball is wortli
the price of admission alone.
"What a spendthrift she is with her
SARA REBECCA LONG
And now ue turn to our t'Sally". She
has gray eyes. auburn hair and is al'
nays bubbling over with "pep". Sally
has always been a valuable assot in
planning and helping to carry our
E.R.V.S. social activities. Her ambi-
tion is to become an elocutionist and
she has shown us that she has excep-
tional ability along that line. Livery-
one wonders how she ever Iinds time to
do so many different things, as "taking
the front seat", "curling her hair",
"writing letters" and occasionally en-
tertaining a NVest Lebanon Ford.

WILLIAM H. WILSON
Basketball III, IV.
Here is our widely traveled Senior,
Last fall 21 fellow named "Bill" who
had been spending his former life- in
many parts of the world czune to join
our ranks. His ambition is to bee-oniv a
lztwyer, and judging' from the DZISI, we
know he will succeed. NVQ hope to see
his name in the "Hull of Fame" and we
know whatever he does will be ai cn-dit
io the Class of '23.
"Bill is a studieus lad.
lf he doesn't become a lawyer,
l-le's sure to become the 'fzid'."
CHARLOTTE MAE ROSENSTEEL
Elders Ridge, Pa..
Basketball I, II, III, IV.
For two years "Chick" studied hard
to learn the "way to a man's heart".
And then she tried it out to see how it
would work in actual practice. "It
proved successful" t'?J Her one thought
is to go to college and then bcconie an
actress, but we think she will do most
of her acting as a star in a sweet little
bungalow. But you'l1 have to hand it to
"Chick"! She is an all-around girl-
socially. athletically, scholasticully, and
every other way.
"Though shc sways him, she obeys
Though she leads, yet she fellows."
ANNA ROSE STRAWN
If you want to meet a girl who is a
friend, a real true friend who will al-
ways give her sympathy, her time, her
advice-a friend you like to tell your
joys and troubles to, then you are look-
inig for Anna. Vve never see her study,
but she is always prepared. XVe have
"Strawn" to thank for much laughter
and many good times. Her air of capa-
bility never fails to put things across
as they should go. If she enters her
career as energetically as she has the
activities here at Elders Ridge, success
"A little bit goes a long ways".
HELEN CAROLYN WARNER.
Elders Ridge, Pa.
XVho is this little browln haired girl
whose one ambition is to have a
"dwightful" time. "VVarner" is the
smallest girl the Senior class can boast
of. Helen has shown her ability as
secretary of the girls' athletic asso-
ciation. As yet we do not know what
"YVarner" intends to do, but whatever
she decides to do, it will be something
different and she will be clever enough
to make a success of it. There is one
thing she cannot be coaxed to neglect
and that is her studies.
"A genuine clever little lass
And qufite an asset to our class."
SARA. ELIZABETH WELLS
Here is the only real blonde girl in
our class, a dreamy, clever lass. She
has carried more subjects than any
other member of the class this year. Al-
though she has been with us only two
years, she has shown us her ability as a
good student. Occasionally "Blondie"
likes to spend an evening in oornipany
with the "opposite sex", but do not
think she spends all of her time at such
trivial things, XVhen she dons her uni-
form in the XVest Penn Hospital, Pitts-
burgh, although she may look severe,
she will always be "just our Blondie".
"You thought her quiet ditln't you?
Well, so did we, but we found out
"American Beauty Rose"
OUR COL ORS
Come classmates all, a hearty toast
To our colors, the Gold and the Blue,
The colors that stand for the best and most
Of all that is worthy and true,
So here's to the untarnished rays
ln a sky of spotless hue,
May we never drag in tl1e dust, or disgrmtt
Our colors, the Gold and the Blue.

September 2, 1919, eighteen timid Freshmen entered the Academy
building to prepare for climbing the ladder of success. Like all Fresh-
men, we were at first green. The Seniors claimed they took us for
grass, but they were mistaken and soon changed their minds. We grad-
ually fitted into place and studied our lessons which were, English, Latin,
Mathematics and Agriculture or Domestic Science. One evening after
school we all ascended the steps to our much beloved English room
Ca place where we have sojourned so often in the past four years to
witness many wierd scenesj to hold our first class meeting. Our class
was organized with Charlotte Rosensteel, President, Sara Long, Vice
President, Anna Strawn, Secretary and Treasurer, Helen Warner, His-
torian, and Paul Coulter, Poet. We selected blue and gold as our
class colors. We studied very hard, obeyed our teachers and never,
never "sassed" until at last the finals came and we nearly all passed.
Having accomplished what we did, we were glad to enter into the joys
and pleasures of vacation.
August 30, 1920, again we assembled in the Academy building and
found ten of our number missing, but this loss was made up in part
by the addition of three new members. This term we studied our
lessons more diligently and with more confidence in ourselves, for two
reasons, first, because the subjects we were studying were more difficult,
second, because we were no longer wee, wee Freshies, but witty Sopho-
mores, Many happy hours were passed away, under the instruction of
our patient Caesar teacher, while we sat around the stove with our
minds way back in the days of Julius Caesar, fighting the battles in
Flanders. We entered the sports as well as our lessons, with all our
hearts. Two of our girls made first team in basketball fpretty good
wasn't it?J. The days sped swiftly on, soon the term came to an end,
and we again passed "exams" and thereby proved as the expression is
"What we lacked in quantity we made up for in quality."
August 29, IQZI, once again the Academy with its ivy clinging walls
was greeted with our merry laughter. We no more were Sophomores,
but jolly, jolly Juniors, with our aims set higher than ever before. We
realized that we had climbed a few steps of Life's ladder since we en-
tered as Freshmen, and were just a little nearer the heights and still
climbing. We began to realize more fully that those days were merely
stepping stones to the monument that we hope some day to erect as a
reward of our labor. In the summer days, we became better acquainted
with the world. In this term we could take Home-making or Agricul-
ture as we chose. Cnly four of our girls thought their future would call
for Domestic Science Course, the others thinking their callings would be
in other fields of life.
August 28, 1922, all the members of the last year's class with the
addition of three new ones, entered this famous institution of learning
for the last time. Later in the year, one member left our group, think-
ing he could use his ability to better advantage in other work. This
term three new teachers came to take up the work of Mr. Hartman,
Mr. Fristoe and Mr. Harris. We soon became acquainted, and under
their supervision we learned many new things. One of the most im-
portant events that occurred this year was the presenting of "The Court-
ship Under Difficultiesu, and "The Salutatorian's Difficulties." This
entertainment was followed by a box and pie social. Faithfully, earnest-
ly, loyally, steadfastly, we have labored, toiled, and striven for a gift
of wisdom that we may live beautiful and more useful lives. We, as
graduates of Elders Ridge Vocational School, are standing on the
threshold of a new life. Our visions are beckoning us to move for-
ward into untried pleasures and experiences, yet we linger when it is
ours to cast a farewell glance back over our most pleasant and profitable
high school days.

Here's to the heart smasher of the
Juniior class. Not one girl in E.R.V.S.
can compare to "Butch" when it comes
to wavy hair, big blue eyes, and rosy

Everyone knows Margaret, and what's
more important, everyone likes her. As

appreciates it more than Margaret,

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF ,24
One beautiful day late in August, eight of us entered the study hall
of E.R.V.S. Here we became acquainted with each other and our teach-
ers, Mr.AHartman, Miss Beishline and Mr. Williams, It was not until
more than six weeks later that the girls welcomed their Home-making
teacher, Miss Houser. As a class, we took the regular Freshman courses
and put forth our best efforts toward the mastery of them as all good
Freshmen should. After several weeks two members, Alfred Bair and
Frank Shearer, were added to our class. However before many months
had passed Frank Shearer and one of our original numiber, Edith Buck-
ley, dropped out. About a month after the opening of school, the
faculty and upper classmen gave us a reception, at which there were
no deaths or serious injuries, and no one seemed any worse for the
experience. We spent a very pleasant nine months, and the end of the
term found us all glad to have so satisfactorily completed our studies,
and eager to enter into the good times of the summer's vacationl
The second step in our story found us again at the little "red school-
house" on the Ridge, this time as Sophomores. Six of our old mem-
bers appeared and Elizabeth lNells, a valuable recruit from Dayton, Pa.,
fell in line with us. But as the first month drew to a close one member
left us going South, and several months later another dropped out,
leaving only five of us. We had a farewell party for the latter, Howard
Fulton. At the beginning of this year the position of Agriculture
instructor was vacant, and filled by Mr. Strawn, a student from the
Pennsylvania State College, and Mr. Wilson. About Thanksgiving, Miss
Beishline left us and at Christmas vacation, Miss Houser was lost to us.
A short time later, Mr. Harris came to take up the unfinished work of
Miss Beishline, and Miss Robinson to fill the place left vacant by Miss
Houser. After the holidays Mr. Fristoe came to fill the position of
Agriculture instructor. These teachers remained with us to the end of
the year. The end of this year found us again ready for the joys of
This year we met a new faculty with the exception of Miss Robin-
son. Mr. Beamer, the Agriculture teacher, is also our Director. Mr.
Alexander and Miss Scherer took up their respective work in the
Academic Department. Miss Sherer was only with us until Thanks-
giving. Her place was filled by Rev. Howenstein until Miss Sparrow
came, to remain with us until the end of the year. Our already de-
pleted numbers were again weakened, two of our number taking up both
Junior and Senior work. We all wish them success. One of our wan-
dering classmates returned having tried fortune elsewhere. About mid-
year we lost twenty-five percent of our class in Mary Lockard. By all
these subtractions, there are only three of us. Never-the-less we are
of good cheer, for as the old saying goes, so it is with us, "Where
quantity is lacking, quality is of the highest."
Here's to you worthy Seniors! And as you go forth into the world
and face its many problems, may we, the Class of '24, worthily, though
scantily, fill your places.
THE OLD ACADEMY BUILDING
THE ACADEMIC DEPARTMENT
First let us consider the Academic Department. Here we are taught
the subjects which enable all students to graduate after a four years'
course, and at the same time those which are recognized as most profit-
able and appropriate, so that some day we will be given a position of
We have heard that "he who is best educated is most useful" and
it may be observed that the person who is best educated has had an
At this time we will give you an idea of the subjects taught in
the Academic Department.
To the "Fre3hies":
English I, and Ancient History.
To the Sophomores:
English II, Algebra I, and Medieval History.
To the Juniors:
English III, Mathematics.
To the Seniors:
English IV, American History, Chemistry, Problems of Democ-
racy, and Mathematics.
just how does an Academrr training fit one for life? That is a
very fitting question
In the English Department we are taught to speak properly and
use correct English. NVe are given a better idea of what kind of books
we should read in order to become better educated. English is gen-
erally recognized as the most practical study in school, since it is used
in every day life.
In the History course we study Ancient, Medieval and American
History. By the study of Ancient History we become acquainted with
the life of man in all of its manifestations-society, commerce, religion,
art and literature These are presented in such a way as to make it
clear how one age grows out of another, and how each civilization
profits by that which has preceded it. In this course we appreciate the
career of man from the days of the rudest stone hatchet to the Chris-
tian Cathedral of Europe, without a serious gap. The study of Medieval
History is a treatment of Medieval times, especially of the Church.
The study of American History is based in a measure, upon America
and her government. We understand the political features, and the
industrial and social life of the people. It is shown in this course that
the democracy of today has been made more complete than that of our
By a study of the Languages we are enabled to understand the
meanings of many words which may be new to us. It also helps us to
speak better English.
Upon studying Problems of Democracy and Civics we can under-
stand what our country needs. We come in contact with problems of
every day life in our own communities. Good citizenship calls for an
understanding of the great problems which a democracy such as ours
must face. The good citizen does not expect to be an expert at solv-
ing the problems, but he at least may know that certain important
problems exist and he may establish sound principles on which to
base his thinking with reference to them. And even for the small
number who go to E.R.V.S. it is well to consider the great questions
of society, industry and government.
Our course in Mathematics does two things, at least, for the pupils
at E.R.V.S. It gives us the ability to think rapidly and accurately, and
it should give us a knowledge of the problems of business and of life.
The course in Chemistry furnishes us with a clear idea of the under-
lying principles of Chemistry and a definite knowledge of its more im-
portant facts. The experimental determination of Chemical facts is
emphasized, when sufhcient facts have been given they are made clear
by experiments. In this course we are able to appreciate what nature
is doing for science and invention. In this Department we must know
such things as the following:
I. The difference between a flask and a beakerg an acid and a
base, compartment and department, fire extinguisher and fire
distinguisher and how each works.
2. A few of us still remember how to conjugate such Latin verbs as:
Singular No. Plural No.
THE AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT
"The Handy Man's Course"
A boy wishing to get closer in touch to Mother
Nature, will select the Agriculture Course offered
at E.R.V.S. If he is a crook he will be found
forging notes in the black-smith shopg if a musi-
cian, practicing in the Anvil Chorusg or if in the
future he wishes to be a dentist, he will try his
luck on a harrow.
Let us step into the next room for a few min-
utes. Here we find benches ladened with saws,
hammers, planes, screw drivers, and many other
tools. A boy after spending two years of work in
this room surely has a command of these tools.
In the Agriculture Room are many interesting
objects. On the walls there are may pictures which
benefit the boys in their work. There is also the
faithful old stove which proved to be a warm' foot
rest on cold days, to the boys taking this course.
ln this room the boys have their study and recita-
V ge, ay-1
DOMESTIC SCIENCE DEPARTMENT
In this course the girls are taught numerous things
which can be put into practice in their own home.
They are not only taught the preparation of three
meals a day, but also a study of food products,
chemistry and attractive serving. . Oh, a word con-
cerning the pantry supplies on inspection day, were
there always the right amount of 1-?
In the sewing course we found that it was wise
to follow the instructions but not to make a Hying
machine out of a sewing machine.,
Those little dresses, oh, how sweet,
They made us look so prim and neat.

The Lyceum Course for this year included very
interesting programs. These numbers were highly
appreciated by the students and people of the com-
During our four years in High School we had
numerous parties. The most outstanding and impor-
tant to us, were the Freshmen Reception and the
The most important event that occurred when we
were Freshmen, was the Freshmen Reception. At
this party we were initiated into the Freshmen
class. We were told the wierd tale of "Jack, Jack"
which we found out later was told by our pro-
fessor, Mr. Hartman. The stunts performed at this
party afforded the upper classmen much pleasure.
One bright moonlight night when all nature look-
ed its lovliest, along came the annual banquet, giv-
en by the junior Class. A dinner never to be for-
gotten was enjoyed by all. After dinner many
games suitable to the occasion were played. Every-
one went home feeling that this was the outstand-
ing occasion of the year.
Though many of the students and people of the community had
realized for some time the urgent need of a better lighting system for
the school, it was not until the fall of 1922 that it was undertaken to
secure the means whereby we could have a light plant installed.
The money was secured in many different ways. Part of it was
raised by subscription, part by the Board and the remainder was raised
by the students of the school.
The Home-making girls of the Class of 1925 gave 322.00 which
they made from their lunch room when Juniors. These girls made
hot lunches in the school kitchen and sold them in the dining room.
This helped them in their training and also helped to secure the light
The boys' Agricultural class gave 325.00 which was secured by
small donations from each of the boys. They made this money by
doing janitor work.
The girls' basketball team also are not to be overlooked for they
helped greatly by giving 330.00 of their hard earned cash. The boys'
basketball team did not like to be outdone by the girls' team so in their
loyalty they topped the girls' 330.00 with a ten spot and very gener-
ously clipped off 340.00 from their bank roll.
The students then combined their forces and gave a pie social
which helped the good cause along greatly. Owing to the condition of
the weather there was not a very large crowd at this affair, but those
who were there xx ere quite generous and the pies that wre sold brought
The Board, seeing the energy that the school was putting into the
struggle for a new light plant, thought they would like to give some-
thing to reward the efforts of those who were working so hard to attain
their goal. The Board then gave 3250.00 to the light plant fund.
Thus through the co-operation of the community, the Board and
the school, we have secured an up-to-date lighting system. One to
which we may all look with pride. It is a source of pleasure and
satisfaction to the student body to know that by personal sacrifices
they have aided in giving the school a gift of permanent value.
We wish to take this occasion to thank those loyal supporters of
the school, who by means of their generous subscriptions ,have made
this rural luxury possible.
Those of -you who read this little article will see that somewhere
behind this work there was a master-mind directing this energy in the
right course. This master-mind was Mr. Beamer, the Director of the
school. He was in the work heart and soul and was backed by the
Although the future light plant at first seemed a dream, it began
to grow and now is a reality. Of course there were some discouraging
moments when to others it looked impossible, but our principle was
not discouraged, but kept on with more determination than ever. I
believe his motto is, "Where there is a will there is a way."
The Boys' Athletics
"Seats" is our crack forward. He is a good shot and stands First
in the number of baskets. His guard was always given a lively chase.
"Normy" proved his ability in basketball his lirst year. He has
helped out in not a few hard fought games.
HARRY DUNMIRE CCapt.J-Center
"Dunmire", our center, is also the keystone of the team, always
ready with encouragement and advice to the team.. He is strong on the
defence and his ability on the floor cannot be denied.
"Coulter" was one of our strong and dependable guards. Hisnfor-
ward never could trick him in any movements. He could shoot from
any angle, and was good in pass work.
"Bill" never believed i11 permitting his forward to get away from
him. He was good in pass work, and also good in breaking up the
opponents' pass work.
The "Team of '23" wish to give their thanks to the following play-
ers, who have so willingly given their service to the team, and have
been substitutes n many of the games:

The Girls' Athletics
The Girls' Athletic Association was organized on the fifth of Sep-
tember. The officers were as follows:
Vice President--Lula Buckley
As the tennis court was not in Ht condition to play tennis, the
girls' main sports were baseball, socker and various other games. All
the girls were waiting eagerly for Mr. Beamer to say it was time to
play basketball, it being the main sport of the school.
An opportunity was given the ones who did not want to play
basketball, as well as the ones who did play, to obtain an .E by learn-
ing to play a number of games and walking three hundred miles in
the school year.
When the basketball season was over the girls busied themselves
with hoes to put the tennis court in fit condition.
CHARLOTTE ROSENSTEEL, "Chick"-Forward CCapt.D
"Chick" is short but strong and quick. Always on the spot at the
right time. She generally makes her baskets in time to save defeat.
A worthy captain of a strong team.
MARIE HOOD, "Hoodl'-Forward.
"Hood" is a splendid shot and can shoot from all angles of the
Hoor. She also does some good team work and much of our success
this year is due to her.
LULA BUCKL EY, "Buckley"-Center
"Buckley" never permits a center to get the tip on the ball twice.
Scored a large number of points both in fouls and field goals. As well
as the center of the team, she was always in the center of the iight.
CATH ERINE SHEARER, "Katie"-Guard
"Katie" is hard to beat as a guard. The forward never gets more
than one field goal in a game. She is a wonderful shot UD Watch
for her next year.
RUTH HINE, "Hiney"-Guard.
"Hiney's" cleverness and remarkable ability to follow the ball closely
were one of the greatest assets of the team. She was of great assis-
tance in bringing the season to a successful close.
MIRIAM BAKER, "Mini"-Sub., Forward.
"M,im" proved to us her ability in playing basketball this year.
Fast on her feet and plays the ball.
MARY FULTON, "Fulton"-Sub., Guard.
L'Fulton" is near the bottom whenuit comes to points, but close the
top when it comes to good hard consistent playing. A sure winner.
A Review of the Girls' Basket Ball Season
With six victories and only one defeat, the girls' basketball season
of 1922-23 stands out as one of the most successful in the history of
Elders Ridge Vocational School.
Every team in our own class was defeated by a large score, and
the record of not being beaten on our own Hoor was kept inviolate.
During the season, the Blue and White defeated such teams as Vander-
grift, West Newton and Marion Center, and a few other teams of a
similar class. The West Newton game was an exceptionally hard fought
The team itself worked as one person, no one player being a par-
ticular star in every game. It fought as only Elders Ridge team, full
of the spirit of our "Victory" song, know how to fight, and its one de-
feat brings no discredit upon the players or the Vocational School they
so sturdily represented.
As the season was drawing to a close and we were unable to play
Blairsville, the championship of Indiana County is divided between
Blairsville High School and Elders Ridge Vocational School.
To our coach, Mr. Beamer, goes much credit for selecting such a
team from the school and for developing it into such an efficient fight-

MR. PAUL EWING
We, as a class as well as a school, wish to thank
Mr. Paul Ewing for the fine work as official in all
basketball games played on the home HOOF.
But he did not stop with just helping us in basket-
ball. Wherever he could extend a helping hand he
was always ready to assist. We Seniors especially,
will remember Mr. Ewing for his interest in our

A SONG OF MAY zz
Joy to the world, commencement hath
Let Seniors receive their crown,
Let every little lassie good,
Wear upon her head a hood,
And Sophs and Freshies sing
And books and pencils fling
And Juniors and Faculty ring.
THE SONG OF A SENIOR
The day is dawning above us,
The joy of life hath fled
But I don't give a cuss
If I do go dead.
I heard thc whip-poor-wills a-singing
Down in the daisy sprinkled vale,
Ioy to the world that they were winging
Down in that star blooming dale.
As I looked upon the peaceful beauty
Of the grand and glorious world,
I thought me of my duty,
As the clouds above unfurled.
As upon me dusk came stealing,
And I thought of joys gone past
I cannot describe that feeling,
That feeling when I felt the last.
So to you, my friends and foes,
When life hath Hed away
Think of how swiftly joy goes
And be happy while you may.
