The "Cod of Industry" was unfair to teachers in
his original division of labor. He placed upon their
shoulders the task of anticipating and, of necessity,
accepting the unexpected. Thus any routine of work
other than that which is bargained for in the teachers
contract, is a burden upon said teacher. '
In spite of this drawback to offering his n1ost ac-
ceptable services to any class, Mr. Snyder has most
willingly agreed to become the honorary faculty mem-
ber of the Graduating Class of June, 1915.
I n this significant capacity, as advisor, leader and
helper, it is beyond the power of the pen to tell how
sincerely and ardently he has worked for us, at the
sacrifice of a great number of his personal pleasures
The Class desires to convey to him, in the sim plest,
most straight-for'ward way, the honest admiration and
grateful thanks of those, who have received the bene-
fits of his upright endeavors and conclusive, broad-
In token of these invaluable services and as an ap-
preciation of his unselfisli efforts for our good, the
members of the .Tune Class of 1915 dedicate this, the
Graduationi Issue of "The Pennant,"' to
MR. RAYMOND H. SNYDER.

A Tease To fthe Qilaee of
Here's to the june Class of nineteen fifteen!
The best class that E. H. S. ever has seen.
XVe know how to work and we like to have fun,
But We'll fight to the finish when the battle's
Here's to four of the best years of our lives,
VVhen we learned that success rewards each one
VVhen we found satisfaction in a teacher's "Well done,"
And a sense of true pleasure in success justly won.
Here's to our flower, the yellow-gold rose,
Witli a meaning each member of June, fifteen,
The thorns, for the hardships and trials, now past,
And so we are gathering the roses at last.
Here's to our future! Oh, may it abound
In the richest and noblest that is to be found.
May each one remember, "Not wealth, rank nor state,
But "get up and get," it is, "that makes men great."
L. C. Z.
Four years ago, one antnmn day,
Timid and shy and green,
We chartered a ship from the E. H. S.
And christened her "J'nne, 'I5.'H
With plentiful ballast of sage advice
We trimmed our eager sails,
And loosed onr cables, and sped away
In the teeth of the fresh'ning gales.
Onr jolly crew were stannch and trne
And gnided by their hopes,
They worked the sails right merrily
When once they knew the ropes.
We fonnd ns soon in griefzfons storms,
A rain of questions ponred,
And front the wet and slippery decks
A few fell overboard.
And when the rocks and reefs nprose,
Some shnddered with remorse
And trembling to the pilot ran,
And begged to change their conrse.
Yet, loss or gain, snnshinfe or rain,
We've been good comrades, all.
And hand in hand, a loyal band,
We'7Je weathered many a sqnall.
We know in all our fonr years crnise,
Long days and toilsorne nights.
We"11e scarcely reached the deeper blne
Beyond the harbor lights,
When- we shall sail mid-ocean deep.
Where storms beat fierce and keen,
We hope to show, how e'er it blow
The worth of "Inner, 'I5."

ARL G. BUYER-English-Credits 32-Carl, the one all-around ath-
lete of the High School, is the idolized hero of June, '15. He has
served as president of the class during I and II A terms, as Athletic
Editor of "The Pennant" in 1913, and as a member of the Class Pin Com-
mittee. His athletic history is as follows: Football, 1911, guardg football,
1912, tackle, football, 1913, tackle, football, 1914, tackle: basketball, 1913-'14,
center: basketball, 1914-'15, centerg baseball, 1912, left iieldg track, 1913 and
1915. Carl has captured nine "E's", one from every branch of High School
UTH DELIENA MONGER-College Preparatory-Credits 32 1-5-
Ruth, the "Hop 0' My Thumb" of June, '15, has been, until this year
in which she served as vice-president both terms, a rather silent, but
loyal member of the class. As a member of the II A Entertainment Com-
mittee, she has "served" the class efliciently. Ruth has been "indirectly"
connected with "The Pennant" staff, and we had hoped to have her partici-
pate in the oratorical contest as our "ofiicial" representative, but when
Ruth says "No"-that settles it! Beware!

UTH ELLEN SHUPERT-College Preparatory-Credits 35-Aggress-
ive, persistent and tactful, Ruth ought to make a first-class suffra-
gette. She can always be relied upon as an ardent supporter of
"Woman's Rights." Ruth has never missed a class meeting nor failed to
get herself appointed on the important committees and elected to the major
oitices. Behold her record! I A Class Pin and Entertainment Committeesg
Class Secretary throughout the yearg Secretary and Treasurer of the Girls'
Athletic Association, and Assistant Literary Editor of "The Pennant." She
will perform her last duties for her class as "Phoebe Bird" in "Polly
OBERT WRIGHT SHORT-College Preparatory-Credits 34-Robert
is the energetic politician and business man of the class as the fol-
lowing record certifies: Class Treasurer 1914-'15, Secretary of the
Athletic Association, Business Manager of "Pennant" first half of 1914 and
1915, Chairman of Class Pin and Invitation Committees, and member of
I A Entertainment Committee, Class "Pennant" and Class Play Committees.
Bob is a shining light U1 in the German and Latin classes, and never
hesitates to talk automobile speed laws in Civics classes, for' in those sub-
jects he is exceptionally well versed.
WAYNE BICKEL-English-Credits 32 1-5-Wayne has never been
, prominently connected with the activities of the school. His chief
characteristic is his deep bass voice and ardent defense of the
rights of the people. It is certainly a rare treat to be permitted to hear
Wayne peruse this, his favorite subject, with the eloquence and logic of an
orator. Sincerity and soberness of thought are qualities which distinguish
Wayne on all occasions.
NNIE ROSALE BANKS-College Preparatory-Credits 33 3-5-Annie
is one of the serious, sober members of our class. She hails from
the country and possesses all of the qualities of the hale, hardy, ener-
getic, studious and loyal country maidens. Although Annie has only been
a member of our class for two years, her loyal support and ever-willing
assistance in class affairs is conspicuous as well as her presence at every
ALPH BOWEN-English-Credits 27-Despite the fact that Ralph
has a car, he is not on intimate terms with the fair ones of E. H.
S. With only 27 credits on his list it behooves our colleague to
apply the "electric starter" to himself, if he expects to graduate by .Ian-

OHN CHESTER-Latin-Credits 33 1-5-John, who has served on the
Class Pennant Committee, has the high ambition of being a great
editor and moulder of the opinion of the nation by his editorials. The
only reason he did not have an athletic record is because he never tried.
Even the most credulous observer must admit that John has high-jumping
ability. We predict that in college he will clear the bar at 12 feet, establish
a new world record, and perhaps obtain a patent on his extraordinary and
yet seemingly painless method of alighting.
OROTHY KNEVELS-College Preparatory-Credits 35 4-54Dorothy
is noted for her ability as a student as well as an energetic member
of the June, '15 Class, and a basketball Uheroinef' She has played
on the teams of 1912-'13, 1913-'14 and 1914-'15, and has been awarded three
"E's". As Secretary and Treasurer of the Girls' Athletic Association in
1913-'14, Dorothy's work was exceptionally efficient, as has been her work
on the I and II A Class Entertainment and Pin Committees. ln Dorothy
"The Pennant" found a most capable and efficient Exchange Editor and
Il A Class Reporter.
TUART W. COCHRAN-College Preparatory- Credits 33+t'Stew," the
"Samson" of June, '15, is one of the brilliant athletes, politicians and
students of the High School. He has served on both Class Play and
"Pennant" Committees. In him "The Pennant" found an efficient Athletic
Editor. S'tuart's physique has made him the football hero of Elkhart
High School. He played tackle in 1911, halfback in 1912, half and fullback
in 1913, and again tackle in 1914, in which year he also was captain of the
team. In 1912-'13 he was yell leader and Student Representative in basket-
ball. Five "E's" adorn his sweater. As "Dick Deadeye" in "Pina-
fore," Stuart made a decided "hit," Again will the public be pleased to
have him appear as one of the leading characters, "Colonel Primrose,"
in the Senior play.

RYSTAL FERN GROSH-Commercial-Credits 32 2-5-Fern's greatest
ambition is to be a missionary, so we expect to hear from her some day
as head of the American Mission in Zululand. However, we hope
she will allow sufficient time to elapse so that all danger from torpedoes,
mines and other implements of war may be avoided. Did you ever stop
to think of how much a pleasant greeting at all times means, and then do
you not recall that shy, sympathetic smile which Fern always bestows
upon you? Here's hoping the heathens appreciate their blessings!
WHITNEY CHESTER-English-Credits 27-"Worthy," the lion-
, hearted, has been prominent in baseball and football, having played
during hisbHigh School term on the baseball teams of 1911-'12-'13,
and on the 1914 football team. Whitney has obtained four "E's"-one in
football, two in baseball, and one as basketball Student Representative.
Whitney seems to be an all around man, having efficiently served as As-
sistant Business Manager of "The Pennant" in 1912.
ELEN GERTRUDE KEIL-College Preparatory-Credits 32 3-5-It
takes all kinds of people to make up the world and all kinds of
people to make up a school. Everyone cannot hold an office but
everyone can be loyal. Helen is one of the class loyalists, who never fails
to support class projects. Helen also possesses one of the best records of
any of the class and ever since the Freshman year she has caused the
teacher to look with fretful doubt 'upon the excuses of other weaker
students. A royal send off to meek, shy Helen in the great world!
WWW! Q WWA 'mfitv Www!! .7044
AYMOND HAGER-Commercial-Credits 29-Raymond ought to make
a good politician. He has a rare capacity for blufling and rarely fails
to get away with it. His personal ambition is to be an accountant
and auditor. His jolly, good nature makes him one of the joys of the class
and we will miss his genial presence.
AZEL NEDINE LUSHER-College Preparatory-Credits 3.5-One of
the intellectual lights of which the '15 Class should feel justly proud.
Entering High School with the avowed purpose of preparing for a
girls finishing school, she has succeeded in finishing with three credits
to the good. ln college she expects to specialize in French and Domestic
Science. It is our sincere wish that she makes a success of both. She
served on the I A Entertainment and ll A Color Committees, and takes the
part of "Elsie Warner" in the class play.
AROLD HESS-Industrial-Credits 31-In Harold, the baseball en-
cyclopedia of E. H. S., the class has a coming "Ty Cobb." As a
sample of his prowess, he proudly displays an "E" granted him in
reward for covering first base in 1914, after having been a member of the
squad the previous year. In school, Harrold's long suit is Economics, and
we may expect to hear from him as Uncle Sam's tax expert or as the
head of the Tariff Commission.

ORA KRAU-College Preparatory-Credits 34-Cora is so shy and
retiring that it has been difficult to get a biography. Neither a
book-worm, nor a teacher's pet, she has, nevertheless, two more
credits than necessary. We understand she is interested in scientific farm-
ing. She is a true, original queen-one whose presence lingers long after
she has passed by.
ED EMERY DAVIS boasts of 25 credits. Two things characterize
him, his lack of seriousness on the one hand, and his intensely re-
ligious f?l nature on the other. His two hobbies are automobiles
and motion pictures. Do not be surprised if some day Ned appears as the
shadow of the late John Bunny. We have recognized his ability by mak-
ing him Assistant Business Manager of "The Pennant," in which position
he has been very efiicient.
OUISE EULALLIA LEECH-Latin-Credits 33-Another demure and
pleasant member of this worldly organization known as the Senior
Class is Louise Eulallia Leech. Quite a poetic name, but very con-
sistent with her apparent fixed life desire to read Latin poetry. These
quiet, unassuming Latin students, who continue in the course for four
years. are the ones who are often so taken up with the mysterious allure
of this subject that they prefer it to a real active 'class participation. An
exception to the rule? Oh my, yes! Class parties are incomplete without
Louise and her fascinating Eastern accent. Success to you and Virgil,

man of Entertainment Committee 1914-153 II D, I B, II B "Pennant"
Reporterg High School Editor of "Pennant," 19145 Assistant Athletic Edi-

of Girls' Basketball team of 1912-'13-'14-'15g Captain of 1914-'15 Girls' Basket-
etball team. Has won four "E's,' in basketball, and her last appearance
as a High School student will be as "Mary Masson"in the class play.
LFRED D. JENNER-College Preparatory-Credits 35-Alfred seems
to have fortified himself in the strongholds of English Literature, es-
pecially Rhetoricals and "Pennant" activities, having been Business
Manager of 'tThe Pennant" one term and Assistant Business Manager two
terms. In class activities, Alfred has not been lacking, having served on
the Class Pin and Entertainment Committees and chairman of the Class
Play Committee. It would be very unlike our friend Jenner not to be a
sport, so we find him in possession of a football Student Representative
"E," 1914. .
ECELIA MORAN-College Preparatory-Credits 30 1-5-Cecelia is
one of the most persevering and conscientious members of June, '15.
Essentially a student, Cecelia has found her time too fully occupied
with Music, Latin and German to take any prominent part in class activi-
ties. However, she is always loyal to our interests and we are glad that
her name is on our Class Roll.
QZWMQ Waazdma ,M4,55,,42y,4m
LMA CHRISTINA PAULSON-College Preparatory-Credits 35 1-5-
Despite the handicap of her middle name, Alma has managed to make
good. She will be better remembered as a hard-working student than a
"booster" of class interests. Latin seems to be her long suit. We may
here differ with the "prophet," but we venture a guess that Alma will
one day head the Latin department in E. H. S.
LBERT EZRA SNYDER-Commerical-Credits 29 2-5-Albert, the
"Charles Chaplin" representative of June, '15, has been more or less
prominent in the interests of the class and in track athletics. He
was a member of the track team of 1913-'14-'153 Student Representative in
'15, Some idea of Albert's energy, when started, may be gained from the
knowledge that he is "property man" for the class play, a position which
requires a great deal of tact and energy.
ATHERINE JANE REED-College Preparatory-Credits 34 2-5-
Catherine Jane, whose fiery Hash of the eyes and sharp tongue,
makes her a worthy opponent for the man, who wishes to test the
strength of self-control and calmness, has always been an ardent supporter
of the various class interests. Catherine Jane has the distinguished honor
of taking the leading part, "Polly Primrose," in the Class Play.

TANLEY PROBST4C0llege Preparatory-Credits 29-Stanley's strong
points are athletics and girls. It took him some years to find himself
established on the basketball Iioor, but it was finally accomplished
through the far-sightedness of Coach Laughlin. But when "Jinx" did
appear on the floor-great was the discovery for E. H. S. and for Stanley.
The Athletic Association never granted an "E" more gladly than it did the
one Stanley now wears.
INNIE MARIE NICKUM-English-Credits 32 4-5-Vinnie came to us
from the January Class. After spending one semester in South Bend
she decided she would prefer her picture in "The Pennant" instead
of in "The Interlude." She is noted for her sweet disposition. and is the
only one who tiatly refused to give her exact age to "The Pennant."
f ILLIAM THOMAS REID-English-Credits 34 1-5-Thomas per-
formed some valuable services for his class as a member of the I A
Entertainment Committee and served with special distinction on the
Color Committee. He was the staff artist on "The Pennant" for two terms
and is now "Col. Alexander Gordon" in the class play.
ERBERT SNYDER-English-Credits 31 4-5-Some time day we ex-
pect to hear that Herbert has become a "wood-cartoonist," for he has
displayed great ability in both the professions of wood-turning and
cartooning. As a class member, Herbert has always been noted for his
jollity and interest in all of the class affairs, and we wish to thank him
heartily for his active and efficient work on the 1914 Entertainment Com-
ORA MARIE STARK-College Preparatory-Credits 32 1-5-'Tis rare
good fortune in this old world of ours that there are a few girls like-
Marie, for she is the sort who "doth the little things that most of us
leave undone." Does her small sister desire a bothersome example un-
twisted? 'Tis Marie who comes to the rescue. Are there household tasks
to be done? Willingly, Marie lends her assistance. Is she a member of
the church choir? Well, then she is present at every practice and every
service singing with a right, good Will. Marie has not always found it pos-
sible to meet with us in class affairs for, be it known, she is one who,
when "pleasure and duty clash," will not "let duty go to smash"-and les-
sons and home duties have come Iirst. An excellent example for some of
the rest of us if we but knew it!
ALTER C. STINSON-English-Credits 32-Every class which grad-
uates from E. H. S. can not boast of a young biologist who has col-
lected, mounted, and owns one of the finest collections of butterflies
found in this vicinity, but in Walter, the 1915 Class has just such a person.
Besides, Walter has made duplicate collections, through the exchange of
which, with other enthusiasts in various parts of the country, he now has
specimens of butterflies from all over the United States. Skill and persist-
ence are two very necessary characteristics in butterfly hunters, and these
Walter possesses and exercises not only in his favorite pastime, but in pur-
suing the subjects set down in the High School curriculum.

ARO L WINSLOW-College
Preparatory-Credits 34-Carol, the
"Madame Butterfiy" of June, '15, has, as her name suggests, been
Hitting in and out of the limelight of the class since its entry to the
High School. She has taken no active part in the affairs of the school. but
has always been an enthusiastic supporter of the class. She takes the role
of "Anne Belle Page" in "Polly Primrosef'
ALTER H. TREUSCHEL-College Preparatoryeflredits 33 4-5.-
Walter is another representative of the virtues of country life.
Although he has never actively participated in athletics nor orator-
ical contests, Walter's long suit is Geometry and English Literature, and,
of course, being a German, he is the shining light of Miss Thayer's classes.
Walter's chief outlet for his pronounced humor f?J is the class business
meetings, in which he insists on seconding every motion which is made.
ORA C. ZIESEL-College Preparatory--Credits 34-Lora, who is an in-
fiuential member of the class, "the power behind the throne," so to
speak, is the orator of the class, having taken second place in the local
contest of 1914, and third in the
year. In the local contest of 1915

VAN WEAVER-College Preparatory-Credits 40 1-5-It is safe to
, say that Van holds the record for credits in E. H. S. In fact, five
subjects and music became a tirmly fixed habit with him at the be-
ginning of his Sophomore year, only to be broken during the last semester
of his Senior year on account of his arduous duties as Editor-in-Chief of
"The Pennant." Van's activity on "The Pennant" began in the spring of
1914, when he was made Assistant Business Manager, and through his per-
severance and strict attention to business won the admiration of the staff
and his classmates. During 1914 and 1915 he has been Editor-in-Chief, and
some idea of his good judgment and etiiciency may be gained from the
fact that the Class President made him Chairman of the Senior "Pennant"
Committee, with power to choose his own committee.

The Murder of Edwin Entanow
By Kieth Seele, june, '16.
T was just twenty minutes before eleven, when my telephone bell
rang vigorously, and taking down the receiver, I took part in
the following conversation:
'Is this Mr. Ferris?"
'This is Hotel Leland. Edwin Entanow has just been murdered
at the reception. You know he is-"
"All right," I broke in, "I'll be there at once. See that nothing
I at once taxied to the hotel. eager to take up this case. In all
my years of detective work, my most interesting cases had been those
in which the vicitims had been society people-those who, apparently,
had no enemies.
Thousands of dollars must have been expended for the decora-
tions of the beautiful ballroom of the hotel. The contrasting color
scheme of white and gold was effectively brought out by the skillful
arrangement of thousands of golden orchids and pure white lilies.
These Howers entirely covered the vaulted ceiling of the room and the
immense chandeliers and exquisite pieces of alabaster statuary were
artistically arranged along the sides of the room-alabaster so pure
as to be almost transparent.
As I -entered the great room, I noticed that there were two en-
trancesf-the grand marble one. in which I was now standing, and
another smaller one-also of marble-at the other end.
.VX little man in gray stepped up to me. "I called you,' he said.
Th-en he told me the story of the tragedy.
just after a dance the host and hostess, Xlr. and Mrs. Edwin
Entanow, had gone to one side of the room, where they sat down
on one of the luxurious settees.
Only a few moments after they had seated themselves, and as
several of their friends were coming to them to extend greetings, Mr.
Entanow was seen suddenly to straighten up-a look of pain crossed
his face-then he slowly sank back. His fl'1.C'lI!iS, looking rloscr, .saw
blood fI0'2L'illg' down thc front of his waistcoat.
His wife, feeling the movement of her husband, as he half rose
up in his seat, and then slowly sank back, turned her gaze toward
him. She -emitted one low cry and then she, too, sank back beside
The little man in gray, as he told me. took charge of affairs, and
when he learned upon examination that Mr. Entanow's beautiful wife
had only fainted, but that her husband was dead, he had her taken to
her apartments. Then he had given orders that Nr. Entanow nmst
not be moved and that everyone should be as careful as possible. Then
he had called me. lVhen Mrs. Entanow recovered and learned what
action had been taken, she seemed to approve.
I at once started upstairs to interview her. As I preferred to walk
up, I passed through the ballroom leaving it by the smaller entrance.
The staircase, located in a large corridor, was situated opposite the
door joining' the corridor with the ballroom. As I stepped on the first
landing, I was astonished to see that a strip of the ballroom, at the
end of which was Mr. Entanow's body. was visible to mel The sig-
nificance of this was at once apparent to me, but I never dreamed of
the second link, which attached itself to the chain of clues at the next
instant. For, as I stepped forward, my foot turned on a small, round
object, which proved to be an empty 32-calibre sh-ell!
After a further search, which, however, availed nothing, I carried
out my original intention of interviewing the victim's wife.
At this interview, I learned that Mr. Entanow had only recently
removed to New York from Boston: that his business had been the
cause of his removal: that, since he was only twenty-four and his wife
twenty, he had also desired to enjoy the more exclusive society of the
larger city: that he was a millionaire many times over: that he had
no enemies, but that his best friend had been his rival for the hand
of Madeleine Transby, now Mrs. Entanow.
How could I catch a criminal from this meager information?
After this interview, I again descend-ed to the first Hoor, where I
sought someone, who had seen the stairway at the time of the murder.
The result of this information led to another interview Hllfl after an
hour's busy action the coroner's inquest was held.
just before the jury was to consider a verdict, I made my way
through the crowd, seized a tall, blonde, young man by the right
hand, and in an instant had the handcuffs fastened on his wrists. I
led him forward and said to the jury:
'AThis is the man, who killed Edwin Entaitow. His name is
Jerald Herrington, and his motive was revenge and jealousy."
VVhen called upon to explain, I stated the following facts learned
from my investigations: '
"XVhen I saw that Mr. Edwin Entanow's body was visible from
the stairway and knew that hve had been shot just a few moments
after he sat down in that place, I knew that the murderer had stood
on that platform, when he did the deed. The empty shell was only
further evidence of the fact.
f'Among other things, I learned from Mrs. Entanow that her hus-
band had had a rival for her hand, and that he had seemed to be in
great favor until Mr. Entanow appeared. Furthermore, I learned
that, when the couple had come to New York, Herrington's business
suddenly called him to the same place, and he had taken a suite of
rooms in the same hotel! To be close to friends in a strange place,
he had said. At once I became suspicious.
"A boy who had been near the staircase, when he heard the cry
of the victim's wife, told me that he clearly remembered seeing two
women on the staircase at that time, and that both were descending.
"I at once inquired for thvese women, but strange to say, I could
only find one of them.
'?From her I discovered that as she was coming down, she saw
a heavily veiled, young-looking woman coming up. This woman hesi-
tated a moment on that first landing. Then she came on. XV hen they
passed she noticed that the stranger wore a high necked and long
sleeved gown, the only one of the sort in that great throng!
"I knew at once that this woman was a man in disguise. and that
he had shot Mr. Entanow.
"Now. I was told that the victim had had no enemies. but when
I was informed that Mr. Entanow had had a rival in love, and that
this rival had followed them to New York, I felt that little remained
to be solved. So when Mr. Herrington obtained permission of Mrs.
Entanow to sit by her husband's body-a thing which would seem
very natural, under the supposed circumstances-I gained access to
his room, where I found a package-wrapped ready for mailing, ad-
dressed to a woman I have since learned is his sister-which con-
tained the disguise he had used. In his trunk I found a single shot
pistol equipped with a Maxim silencer which explained the absence
of any report. In the trunk was also a box of forty-nine good cart-

missing, taking only one shell. which was automatically ejected after
he had pulled the trigger. Familiar with this fact in the open, in the
excitement of his intention, he forgot all about it. lle dared not come
down again immediately to hunt the shell. and I came soon after and
"His motive. I have said, was love and jealousy. Though he pre-
tended to be a very good friend to Mr. and Mrs. Ifntanow he hated
the former, and only abided the time when he could marry the latter
after the death of her husband."
Mrs. Entanow was hard to convince that this was true, and she
only broke into tears when he confessed and told a story similar to
the above account. Did she love him? llad she ever regretted her
choice and by word and deed eomnumicated her regret to the unsuc-
cessful rival? How otherwise can the boldness of llerrington in
taking apartments at the same hotel in which the Entanows lived be
accounted for? llow can his forgetfulness of the peculiarity of his
own pistol be explained except that. buoyed up by some assurance from
Xlrs. Entanow. he had risked all-and lost all? Yet in all justice it
must be said that never has she communicated with the murderer of
her husband since that fatal ball and yet-F
I my Twenty-three
FRESH MAN YEAR.
As we were about to make our debut into ,lligh School, the pros-
pect of becoming members of that venerable institution seemed ex-
ceedingly inviting to us. Our hearts were filled with noble aspira-
tions as to what great deeds we would perform, and how we would
make the name of the Class of June, '15, illustrious.
Then came the day, in September of 1911, on which, over a hun-
dred strong, we actually entered the portals of that building. VVe
had all been inside it before, but this was different. It was as if we
were entering it for the first time. We were suddenly seized with
fear and trembling, and a sense of our insignifrcance and "greenness,"
which our upper-classmen helped in convincing us of. But this did
not bother us very long. XVe soon discovered that we were not the
only martyrs to the cause, and every incoming class had had to go
through the same experience-that of being the jest of the other
classes. XYe did not possess that "green" quality, generally attributed
to Freshmen, to any greater degree than any who had come before us.
At this period in our careers, we were not allowed the privilege
of having seats in the Assembly room, but were scattered about the
building, in any place there was room for us. For this reason, we did
not see as much of our superiors, for which we were truly thankful.
We were an extraordinarily "bright bunchf' or at least that was
our opinion of the case. XVe soon became accustomed to the school
routine, and always did as we were hidden, making only a few mis-
takes. Part of our studying was done in the Assembly room-that is
we studied when we had learned to keep our eyes off of the daring
Seniors cor tinually going to and from the dictionary. One thing which
we persisted in doing, was getting up on the right side of our seats
fwhich we then learned was the wrong sidej. Mr. McCracken kindly
aided our poor memories, by gently reminding us that we should arise
tignill-ffEi Si SS f SSS SSAS if S
on the left side of our seats, and when we failed to do this, gave us
another chance to march back and try again. QVV e enjoyed doing this,
because it afforded our fellow-students so much amusement.j
Of course, we were an exceptionally well-behaved class, for was it
not a very rare occurrence for us to visit the Science room? No doubt
this was due to our diligence. For we worked that year-oh! how we
worked. QWe have learned better since.j
Our class first won fame through the wonderful feats performed
on the gridiron by our honorable fellow-classmen, "Stew" Cochran
and Carl Buyer. Louisa VVeber and "Joe" Marchesseau of the girls.
also helped to make our name illustrious, with their basketball ability.
Along in the spring of 1912, our thoughts began to turn to more
frivolous affairs, such as picnics and parties. The pupils taking the
English Course were delightfully entertained by Nellie Livengood
one evening. The "College Preps", not to be outdone, planned to have
a "hayrack', party, but their plans were never realized.
Our Freshman year was, for the most part, uneventful. Yet it is
one we will always remember as one of the happiest in our lives.
The third of September, 1912, was an important day for us.
Promptly at 8 o'clock Qthis is the first and last time it ever happenedj
we gathered around the entrance of the new High School, which had
been dedicated to our use. and with dignified mien, suitable to our
rank, awaited the pleasure of the janitor in opening the door. XVe
were at last ushered in and conducted up many long flights of stairs to
an assembly room, now designated by the name "Session," which we
condescendingly shared with some Juniors. who were left over from
the Senior Session.
XVho will say that the first few days were not strenuous ones?
To find our way unaided from one end of the building to the other
and at the same time, and in a properly superior manner, to direct the
movements of the very small Freshmen, that swarmed through the
halls, required much skill and energy. Then, too, the days were unus-
ually hot. For the first time in the history of the school, the boys were
allowed to remove their coats in the Session rooms. and three times
we were let out ten minutes early.
On November 22, the formal opening of the High School was
held, and, while we have forgotten the details of the program, the
memory of the many glasses of punch served to us, still remains.
1 l -
During the winter, the basketball games were our chief amuse-
ment. And what did it matter if the girls' games were "closed?"
Half the members of the team were our classmates and we had to be
patriotic, so the girls paid their own way and sat in the "Gym.',, while
the boys stood outside and looked through the windows, free of charge.
Although out of regard for the wishes of the faculty QPJ and
since no one invited us to their hom-e, we had no parties, the time
slipped quickly and pleasantly away, and before we knew it. our
Sophomore year was over. R. E. S.
Not until we were first term juniors, did we come to the conclu-
sion that, "In union there is strength." Then, on one rainy night,
about forty of us assembled at Lora Ziesel's on Strong Avenue, and
had our first experience at a class party. Carl Buyer was elected
presidentg Robert Short, vice-presidentg Ruth Shupert, secretary, and
Arthur Zigler, treasurer.
After many weighty questions w-ere discussed. we were served
punch and wafers in the dining room. Then the boys lined up outside
on the porch and each "nabbed" an unsuspecting girl as she stepped
out of the doorway. Thus -ended our first debut into society.
On September 20, we again met at the home of Nellie Liven-
good. It was supposed to be a hayrack party, but as the vehicle failed
to make its appearance, we were conveyed in touring cars to the scene
of action. A picnic supper was the warm feature of the evening.
About a month later we again tried our luck at a hayrack party,
but were again doomed to disappointment at the non-arrival of the
hayrack, and so had to "hoof" it two miles out in the country. Al-
though this: worked up enormous appetites, the girls proved generous
providers and everyone's hunger was appeased.
On Halloweien we were again entertained by Nellie Livengood.
The third time proved to be the charm, for a hayrack was triumphantly
awaiting our arrival, at the Library. Mr. and Mrs. Snyder did duty
On November 13, we gave the third annual Tunior Promenade,
at I-loffman's Hall. It was the most 'elaborate dance ever attempted
bv any High School class in Elkhart. The music was furnished by
the Mattes Orchestra of South Bend. The programs were of red and
blue leather, lettered in gold. Mr. and Mrs. P. M. Cochran, Mr. and
Mrs. R. Palmater and Dr. and Mrs. G. E. Harter chaperoned the

On December 4, the girls treated the fellows to a progressive
supper. Although a splendid menu was prepared, it could have been
better appreciated, by a larger attendance of the male sex. This was
the final social affair of our first term junior Session.
The only other affair of importance during this term was the
"free-for-alll, fight in front of the Library, one fall day, between the
Juniors and Seniors. The cause of this little disagreement was a ban-
ner of the june, ,15 Class hung on the cables between Lexington and
High, on Second street. The Seniors thought it ought to come down,
the Juniors vowed it would stay up. Finally, it ended in Stuart Coch-
ran being escorted to jail, followed by nearly the entire school.
During the second term of our "juniorshy," we devoted more of
the steadily growing more precious, time to Junior rhetoricals and had
On March 17, we again assembled at Red Men's Hall, for fear
our social learning should grow rusty. The refreshments, which are
always welcome, were served in a novel way. Miss Thayer and Miss
Scherling were the chaperons.
The concluding party of our jolly Junior year was held at Mc-
Naughton Park. It was a picnic supper, and the chief features of the
evening was the playing of "Ante-ante-hi-over"-over the pavilion, by
the rejuvenated juniors and the dignified chaperon, Mr. Vieth.
On the last day of our third year in High School we "sprung" our
class pins, the cutest and best looking ones ever worn by E. H. S.
students. 1. M.. ,15.

you will know how we felt last September. VVe promptly "swore off"
on all undignified slang and marched along with the stately tread, be-
fitting our elevated position.
The first thing to do was to elect officers. Our choice proclaimed

Shupert, and Treasurer, Robert Short. Everything possible was an-
nounced on the bulletin board in order to call the attention of the
lower classmen, that it was now our honored privilege to use this.
VVe soon decided to get something stirring and accordingly, one
night we set out on a 'weenie roast" to that time honored place-
Yellow Creek. Here, besides the excitement of burning and dropping
the weenies, to make them taste good, we had the additional joy of
seeing our "joe" hopping around in a three inch skirt, while being
chased by a boy with a harmless water snake. Of course it was not the
boy she ran from! In spite of many resolutions to walk to Dunlaps
afterwards, we were glad enough to hop a wagon back to old Elkhart
and were finally deposited safely at the Family Theatre.
Next the class was delightfully entertained at the home of Miss
Kantz in Bristol.
This was followed by a sudden burst of friendship between the
H A's of that time, and ourselves. This was manifested by several
joint parties at the homes of Lora Ziesel, Catherine Jane Reed and

you have not noticed this look at oncej. However, the promised party
in his honor still remains a dream of the future.
Strange to tell, we began to realize our lack of funds in the treas-
ury and then we conceived the very original plan, of which we are so
proud, that of selling candy at the basketball games. As expected,
this little business undertaking filled our coffers with gold.
Since becoming II A's, the entertainment committee' has decided
that we should no longer indulge in such childish pleasures as parties
and so we have contented ourselves with occasional meetings in Miss
Grimes' room. The parties are scarcely missed for we are now occu-
pied with more serious things, among them rhetoricals, term reports
and graduation essays.
And now the great days are drawing near. We do not like to
boast but we firmly believe that the class play, "Polly Primrosef' is
going to be the best ever. Graduation day shines ahead and the boys
are beginning to consider the color of their suits, socks and neckties,
and girls, the style of their frocks. Thus closes the last chapter of our
class history, and we hope the future maj' deal as kindly with us as

I-Pennant "Pushes," 2-"E" Girls of June 'I5
3--HA Vergil Class.
By John Chester.
The athletic strength of the Class of june. '15, has not been in
numbers. Although we can only claim five men, these live have a
total of seventeen letters to their creditg and in Carl Buyer and Stuart
Cochran we have two of the best athletes in the history of E. H. S.
Carl Buyer, or "Smiley," is our all-around athlete. He has taken
"E's' in every branch of High School athletics-one in baseball, two
each in track and basketball and three in football. Buyer is a frail
little thing Qheight 6 feet 1 inch, weight 180 poundsj, but i11 spite of
this handicap he managed to secure a place on the football team. Carl
played a smashing offensive and defensive game at tackle and spoiled
many of the opponents' plays, besides clearing the way for Elkhart's
runner on offensive work. At center for two years on the basketball
team, Carl out-jumped every opponent and played a good guarding
game, besides making one-third of Elkhart's field goals. He was one
of the biggest factors in making our team-work a success. In track
athletics. Buyer is the chief weight man for the Blue and XYhite, and is
also a good broad jumper and sprinter.
The record of Stuart Cochran in football is one that may well be
envied by any athlete of Northern Indiana. "Stew" nailed down a
position in the line in his Freshman year, and his work that year
showed that he was a natural football player. In 1912, Cochran
played in most of the games at left half. and his line plunging was one
of the reasons that Elkhart won the championship that year. It was a
sight to bring joy to the hearts of the 'lllue and XYhite rooters to see
Stuart rip through the enemies' line and make a gain of fifteen or
twenty yards, taking most of the opponents' backfield with him. Coch-
ran played fullback and halfback in his Junior year. and his long,
sailing punts and his line bucking continued to swell Elkharfs scores.
Last fall he played at tackle and fullback. In the latter position he
out-punted every opponent, and his playing at tackle was so good that
it caused the sporting editor of one Indianapolis paper to choose him
as the best High School tackle in the state. t'Stew" was the logical
man for the position of captain in his Senior year, and in this capacity
he not only proved an excellent leader on the field, but also instilled his
team-mates with his own Fighting spirit. Although beaten by the
stop-watch in the South Bend game. the team of 1911, under the lead-
ership of Capt. Cochran, was the best in Northern Indiana.
The basketball find of the season was Stanley Probst. Stanley
lived up to his nickname and more than once proved the "jinx" to the
opponents' hopes of victory. Un defensive work Probst generally
kept the enemies' points down to a very low totalg and as a floor
guard he more than once made the other team think that Elkhart was
playing three forwards. Stanley's passing was swift and accurate and
he always seemed to be at just the right place. Stanley's name will go
down in history as one of the best running guards that the High
School has ever seen.
W'hitney Chester, alias "XYorthy," was a member of the second
team backfield of 1913, who was bodily promoted to varsity positions
in 1914. XVhitney played a fast, snappy game at halfback, being es-
pecially good on end runs and in interference. He also played a good
defensive game, intercepting forward passes and being a sure tackler.
The branch in which XYhitney is best, however, is baseball. As our
speedy left-fielder, XYhitney spoiled more of the opponents' hits than
any other man on the team. He played at his best in the South Bend
game at that city last year. when he saved the game three times by
making impossible catches. lYhitney is also a good hitter and fast on
the bases. His speed has turned to commercial lines now, and he is
the fastest man in the local postoffice-to quit work.
llarold Hess, or "Tyrus Cobb," played first base on last year's
team He played a scientific game and fielded his position well.
liess could always be depended upon to be in the right place at the
right time. As sub guard on the basketball team, Harold showed
considerable ability, and he played in several first team games.
llashful "Bertie" Snyder, another one of our track athletes, re-
fused to let us have his picture, but he did consent to let us mention
his name, fafter much persuasionj in the annals of athletic honors.
Albert is a hurdler, one who has worked hard for four years to
win a letter. He has shown that Senior dignity should not pre-
vent an athlete of ability from trying once more, teven though he
"E" MEN OF JUNE. '15
has failed for three yearsj, to work for his school and show his loyalty
to the end. Low hurdles and high hurdles have both been mastered
by Snyder, and due to an abundance of endurance, though lacking
somewhat in speed. he easily won a first place, and consequently a
letter in the Goshen-Elkhart track meet. Albert has other accomplish-
ments in the track department, such as pole-vaulting and jumping.
which should be sufficiently develop-ed in the spring practice to make
him a hot contestant for first place in all the meets he enters.
Girls' athletics, with all of its disadvantages, holds a certain charm
for Josephine Marchesseau. She has been the most prominent girl in
the Athletic Association for two or three years. Her place on'the
basketball team is that of captain in her last year, and as the best
individual forward in Northern Indiana. Her ability lies in her left
arm. With this she can shoot a basket from any position on the floor,
guarded or unguarded-no difference at all. Such distinguished
basketball players add greatly to our athletic prestige.
A sister team-mate is Dorothy Knevels, assistant center-a girl
of more than ordinary ability at this position, since she is endowed
with wond-erful speed. Marvelous as this speed seems, it is not to lze
compared with her consistency of playing. Dorothy has held her
honored position for three or four years, perhaps receiving some
prestige from one Ada Knevels, who departed about 1912 from this
school. Dorothy expects to go to a convent next year, so woe to the
beloved game of basketball.
A third feminine member of the class athletic family is one rough-
neck, Louisa Vlfeber. She is one of the guards on the basketball team.

like the other Seniors, of course, has played from her babyhood up.
isee Mellin's Food ad.j and this experience has enabled her to become
one of the best guards the school has ever placed in the athletic
annals. Louisa played a star game here when the squad vanquished
This aggregation of athletes, both boys and girls, is sufficient in
number and quality to cause acquaintances to wonder whether the
real intentions of the Senior Class is not to make athletics the chief
element of our educational curriculum. '

AS THE PENNANT SEES IT
ELIQHART LosEs SLWERINTENDENT DRAKE.
Un june 15, 1915, Superintendent E. H. Drake goes to Kala-
mazoo, Michigan, to become the head of the public schools of that
city. Elkhart schools lose in Mr. Drake one of the greatest factors
in their successful operation and advanc-ement during the past nine
Ever a staunch advocate of new ideas in education, Mr. Drake
has endeavored to have adopted subjects not taught in the schools
and also up-to-date systems in various branches already being taught.
Through his keen interest and hearty advocacy, the introduction of
manual training and domestic science have been made possible, while
grammar teaching in the grades has been completely revolutionized
through his ever ready appreciation of vitalizing methods.
His realization of the great value of athletics to a high school has
been of gnestimable worth to the Athletic Association, for he has
always SlfflVCi1 to further athletics by obtaining the very best coaches
available, and by hearty sympathy, interest and co-operation, which,
together with his genial presence at the games, will be sorely missed
by every E. H. S. student.
Thus, in Mr. Drake's resignation, the Elkhart schools lose a
man, whcse exceptional ability as a superintendent has, we feel sure,
been developed in great measure by that characteristic so abundantly
possessed by him, and so desirable in any man whose calling brings
him in contact with young people, that of good fellowship.
Congratulations to you, Kalamazoo, and to you, Mr. Drake, the
best that life can offer you.
OUR HIGH SCHOOL AS A SOCIAL CENTER.
Charies VV. Eliot has defined the social center idea as, "A move-
ment to utilize in various ways outside of regular school hours, the
school building and its equipment, for the benefit of the entire com-
We have two examples of its use in Elkhart. Basketball games
draw large crowds of persons interested in the team. But there is
the admission price, which destroys the larger idea. The Domestic
Science department has entertained this winter, but that did not ex-
tend outside the Faculty and School and City officials.
Now what are the possibilities of a real social center in Elkhart?
The gymnasium could be used as the headquarters of the Roy Scouts
during the summer. It ought to be open to business men at least two
nights a week during the winter. A little more equipment would be
necessary. An auditorium should be erected for assemblages, enter-
tainlnents. public meetings and lectures. There could bela dance hall
conducted under High School supervision, private in character, open
to Alumni and former students. Create and keep open for public use
a school library as a supplement to the city library.
These new and broader activities would take away none of the
High School's sacredness and dignity as an educational center, but
would cause its iniluence to reach far beyond the number that register
upon its roll books. lt would cause our young people to remember their
High School in more than a sentimental wav and long after they
have left its halls as students.
As an institution for the public good the High School should be
a moulder, not a follower of public opinion of the community.
The social cent-er is coming. Let us hasten the day by a boost
and a word of encouragement.
R. H. S.
.Ks the close of this delightful school year draws nearer, it is fitting
that we should say a word, at least, in appreciation of the sympathy,
interest and co-operation which has been accorded "The Pennant"
Although much of the material which has been submitted to us
has not been published, it is by no means a sign that the efforts and
thoughts of the contributors have not been appreciated. lt has been
our policy to use only that available material, which was the best re-
flection of the ability and talent possessed by our High School.
For every suggestion, thought, and production, whether literary
or artistic, which has been contributed to "The Pennant," and for the
interest shown and excellent work done by those members of the Re-
view Printing Co., who have, in any way, aided in the production of
"The Pennant" during this entire year, we desire to express our
most heartfelt and grateful appreciation.
It will be exceedingly difficult to find a staff which will work more
faithfully and harmoniously for the best interests of "The Pennant"
than has the present one, and our wish for the future is that "The
Pennant" may have many more just as efficient, just as well organized
-better if they are to be had-which will produce the best High
School paper in this State or any other.

Followers of the track sport seem to have been mixed up on the
date for the preliminary track meet on May 1. About fourteen loyal-
ists loomed up to see the event which, beyond a doubt, was one of the
best preliminary meets ever staged here. Several records were made.

One feeble voice spoke up and said.

A SUGGESTION FOR FOOTBALL.
Basketball, baseball and track teams of the state hold tournaments
at the end of each respective season. These determine the champion
of each state and furnish incentive for the athletic teams to compete
for. Why not do this with football?
VVhy not divide the state into two sections. each with four divi-
sions. match the teams of each division, till a champion is determined,
and decide the state's supremacy at a contest held between the cham-
pions of eachisection?
Football is the best of the interscholastic games, the merit of
which a tournament would do much toward proving, besides being an
excellent means for arousing additional interest in the sport itself.
Then too, the question of football championship would not be an
undecided one, the honors of which under the present system-or
rather lack of system-can be claimed by any local paper.

ATHLETIC SUCCESS OF THE PRESENT SEASON.
The subject of athletic success for the season gone past, years ago
lost all the impressive force it originally had, due to two reasons. One,
the number of times which it has been written about, and the second
the lack of veracity which writers employ when they discuss the var-
ious phases of this subject. Thus, for these two reasons. athletic suc-
cess has become as regular and humorous a thing as the success of the
local talent show, as discussed in the newspapers.
However, to discuss truthfully the situation in our own school,
the 19135 football season made money and brought out new
men, while the last season was successful financially, and in point of
games teven though one important one was lostj and finally, was the
origin of enthusiastic interest from a fair share of the faculty fhow-
E. H. S. ATHLETES
ever, not from "the fair" share we regret to sayj and from the student
body whose interest is always the determining factor in the success
of all athletic sports.
Basketball followed, and we came out of every single contest
ahead, had the advantage of points in every double-header, had, numer-
ically a championship team, crowded our own gymnasium on every
occasion and took large representations away with us to neighboring
cities for contests. Then came track. with the same encouraging,
consistent, success, money and interest.
Our iinancial growth has had a three-fold mental effect. It has
encouraged and provided our managers with something to work on.
They have taken a great pleasure in ordering complete new costumes
for football, basketball and track teams. Likewise it made the ath-
letes feel that they at last were being a material result of their steady
efforts on the teams-and receiving the benefit thereof. Finally, the
effect of good teams, teams to yell for and be proud of, has made the
student body the most enthusiastic, forgiving and consistent one, yet
known in the history of this High School. Success has been the theme
of our athletic drama, success the purpose and success the conclusion.
Through the shadows of neglect and disregard, the season of 1914-'15
has shown forth and lighted the way with its athletic success, to a
future time when the student will not distinguish Athletics from Latin
nr German or any other usual study.

The I A Class held a short meeting in Miss Grimes' room, Wed-

The I A Class extends their congratulations to Mrs. Dale Gos-
horn, nee Miss Gertrude Korns, who was married to Mr. Dale Gos-
liorn on the evening of April 28, at the Trinity M. E. parsonage.
The I A Class entertained the II A Class Tuesday evening, May
11, at the Red Men's hall. A two course supper was served and
"Zip" Minnis and Raymond Douglas, "two union waiters," were
hined for the occasion. After the supper Lora Ziesel and Carl Buyer
led the grand march, which was followed by dancing. Miss Grimes
and Mr. and Mrs. Snyder acted as "jolly good" chaperons. "Stew"
Cochran htickeled the ivories" most of the evening, and aside from
occasional "eclipses" caused by Miss Grimes and other refractory
guests the evening was one of the most pleasant the classes have ever
The class of june '18 enjoyed an evening at the home of Mildred

On XVednesday, April 21, Mary Houseworth entertained the

"It n-ever rains but it pours." At least that is what the members
of the II B Class thought, on Monday, May 3. But in spite of the
thunderstorm, which appeared as they were on their way to Christiana
Lake for a "Weenie roastf' they went right on. And what a delightful
time, and how many experiences they did have! They even saw a
real, live monkey! The party wasn't spoiled by the rain at all, for
"iris always fine weather when good fellows get together."
Ruth I-Iouseworth has returned to Elkhart, after a trip to Cali-
fornia and other points in the West.
Dramatization as a class room device for teaching Literature is
being used in thle afternoon division of Miss Grimes' II C Literature
class in their study of Treasure Island. There are but seven charac-
ters in the dramatic unit founded on Chapters 28, 29 and 30, which
is being followed-and those all male parts-but each one of the sev-
enteen members of the class, irrespective of gender, is required to in-
terpret some one of the parts, and the seven who show the best inter-
pretative ability will give the final presentation before the class at its
last meeting on June 2. S
Absolutely no attempt at costuming or stage setting will be made
as the primary purpose of class room dramatization is to arouse inter-
est, stir the imagination, to create illusion, to induce appreciation of
the masterpiece, and thus to quicken a love for literature.
Lora Ziesel, who read "The Death Disk" by Mark Twain, and
Harold Bates, whose oration was Henry VV. Grady's "New South,"
were adjudged the most successful of the twelve contestants in the
E. H. S. Oratorical Contest before 500 people in the Samuel Strong
building, Friday evening, May 7. Of the two, Lora Ziesel's average
was the higher, so her name has been engraved upon the silver cup
which the Class of 1910 presented to the High School. The judges
were, Judge L. Harman, Attorney VV. B. Hile and Mrs. C. E. Teed.
On account of the time required for printing this issue of "The
Pennant," we are unable to give the results of the contest held at Gary,
May 22, in which our contestants were among twenty-four others from
twelve schools of Northern Indiana.
h One week after Elkhart schools close for the summer vacation
three of the H. S. corps of teachers will leave for the Panama-Pacific
Exposition, to spend varying periods of time. Principal McCracken,
accompanied by Mrs. McCracken, will be gone seven weeks, returning
early in August. Mr. McCracken will return in sufficient time to
write all credits for applicants who wish to enter college.
Miss Margaret VVilson, whose niece, Miss Margaret Blake, will
be her companion, leaves on june 10 to spend three months, dividing
the time between the exposition and various trips and visits with
friends and relatives in VVashington and Oregon.
Miss Janet Mishler, who has so efficiently and faithfully taught
English in E. H. S. since the spring of 1912, has accepted a similar
position in the High School at Carlton, Oregon, 25 miles south of
Portland, for the coming school year. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L.
D. Mishler. with her sister, May Mishler, a member of the January,
1916 Class, will move from Elkhart to their farm in the vicinity of
Carlton, where the family intends to make their future home. "The
Pennant" voices the sentiment of the Faculty and High School in re-
gretting the loss of Miss Mishler and her sister, and in extending to
them every good wish for their success and happiness in their new
MANUAL TRAINING EXHIBIT.
The Manual Training department is at present having an exhibit,
on the first iioor of the building. that is well worth oue's time to see.
The work is divided into two parts-one part being devoted to
the grade work, the other to the High School work.
Although the grade boys do not have such difficult pieces to make
as the High School boys, nevertheless they show remarkable ability in
what they do. Among the pieces on exhibition made by them are
nail boxes, towel holders, wind mills, three kinds of kites and Wren
houses. Tabourets and magazine racks are also displayed.
The High School department has a more extensive display. Some
of the finer articles that are shown are porch swings, book cases, ped-
estals and library tables. One of the biggest pieces made was a kitch-
The Manual Training exhibit is open to the public. The object
of the exhibit is to show the people what can be done by the manual

CITY OFFICIALS VISIT HIGH SCHOOL.
Mayor Frank E. Smith and members of the city council and the
Board of Public VVorks were entertained by Superintendent E. H.
Drake and the members of the school board on April 27, acting on an
invitation extended to the city officials by the school board. The men
w-ere met by Superintendent Drake in his oihce and were shown
through the entire building. Mr. Drak-e explained some of the feat-
ures of 'the Manual Training and Domestic Science departments when
these rooms were visited. "Made-iln-High School" refneshments
were served to the visitors by the girls in the Domestic Science de-
"It's a bigger thing than the average person thinks,', said Presi-
dent Davidson of the Board of Public Works, in discussing the D0-

Afterwards Mayor Smith address-ed the officials of the city and

HERE IS SOMETHING TO WORK FOR.
Principal S. B. McCracken has received a letter from the authori-
ties at Goshen College to the effect that a one year scholarship in
ir iiif i
that institution will be given to the local High School student of high-
est standing. This offer has been made to several High Schools in
Northern Indiana, and is to take effect at once, subject to the condi-
tion that the year be taken immediately following graduation. The
college expects to make this offer every year.
SUM MER SCHOOL.
Plans were made early in the spring for Summer School, to be
held in the High School building, extending over a period of eight
weeks during June and july.
By spending double time on each subject during the eight weeks
period a full semesters credit may be obtained. Either advanced or
review subjects may be carried and courses in History, Civics, Mathe-
matics, Science and Grade work will be offered. A small tuition fee
will be charged, depending upon the number who enroll.
The High School work will be in charge of Mr. Keltner and Mr.
Guyer, while Miss Mary Daly and some others will teach the' Grade
If you are at all romantic or in the least fond of thrills, you will
find yourself pleased beyond any conceivable measure by the Senior
Class Play, "Polly Primrosef'
In "Polly Primrose" fa comedy-drama, near-tragedy, romance and
historical playj you will see portrayed the most ardent, straight-for-
ward, thoughtful, unselfish, deceptive love between a belle of the
South and a beau of the North. You will see the city of Georgetown
as it was fifty years ago, how the people lived, a most lovable, typical
and amusing "nigger mammy," and a "happy-go-lucky nigger slave."
There will be an exact reproduction of the home and estate of a
Southern gentleman, its chief beauty lying not in its magnificence nor
grandeur, but in its true Southern hospitality. You will learn how
Southern homes helped the ne-bel cause, how Yankee spies and Yankee
renegades worked their tricks and attempted to obtain an insight into
the business of the warring rebels. But the most interesting of all
will be the love making between "Hugh" and "Polly." Stern papas
and mammas of the past, present or future are nothing to the obstacles
which these two young people overcome to win each other. C0h, yes,
one is just as much in love as the othler.j
Lastly, there is to be gained from this vivacious, thrilling produc-
tion a hint to young maidens in love as to the Way of winning bashful
lovers, and to young men in love, the solemn, sound and practical
advice-"Do not wait too long, ere she is gone to another 2" ,

Vacation time is drawing near, and as it will be nearly three
months before we communicate again with our exchanges, we would
like to say that we thank all the schools sending papers to us, and
hope to see their papers upon our table next fall. XYe also hope that
all may start when school begins again, with better material and a bet-
ter organized paper, and likewise with a large Exchange department,
which is the weak point in many papers.
Although you may feel that you have been too heavily borne upon
by those awful Exchange editors-cheer up and next time have a
paper which is above their criticism. We sincerely hope that our ef-
forts have not been futile and that a little of our criticism has done
One general criticism, which we would like to make, this month
is that some of the papers are lacking in good stories. Of course this
does not apply to all, for the Literary departments in some are very
good, including the "Crimson," Louisville, Ky., in which the story,
"The Last VVar," is very interesting, the "Thistle," Cleveland, Ohio,
and also the "Canary and Bluef, Allentown, Pennsylvania. We feel
that the Literary department is a very valuable asset to a paper and
that this should be at least as large as the other departments, and that
those who are in the habit of having only one or two very short
stories should "sit up and take noticef, This applies to the "Cumtux,"
Alexandria, Louisiana, the "Reflector," Jackson, Mich., and the "Pur-
ple and VVhite,'l Allentown, Pa.
Of course, we do not believe in filling the papers with stories and
leaving out something equally important, for then it would merely
be a story magazine and would not have the remaining things, which
are of interest to a High School student. But at least have three
or four good stories in it, for they add much interest to the paper.
1.. S 1 I ll l
In some of the Exchanges we notice that the places from which
the papers come, are omitted in the comments. This is likely to cause
confusion, especially when there are two papers with same name. For
example, in a certain exchange we found a comment on a "Pennant,"
but whether this was meant for us or for the "Pennant" from Leba-
non, Indiana, we do not know. So please give the town from which
the exchange comes, and thus save yourselves from dire vengeance.
ln the "Skirmisher," Hillsdale. Mich., we notice that our paper
received second prize in the exchange contest held there. We thank
the 'fSkirmisher" for the above named honor.
VVe find a good Literary department, Editorial and a line Ath-
letic deaprtment in the UG. H. S. Reflector," Cleveland, O.
VVe wish to commend the i'Departmental" in the HX-Ray" from
Anderson, Indiana, for in it one can gain a good idea of the things
The Exchange department should be lengthened, but the Literary
department and School Notes are good in the "Hilltop," jersey City,
A very fine Exchange and Literary department are two good
things found in the "Crimson," Goshen, Ind., but an Alumni and a
few more departments might be added.
We learn that the "Crimson," Louisville, Ky., and the "Spec-
tator" from the same place will merge into a larger and better paper
next year. We certainly hope that it will be a decided success and
will welcome it to our Exchange list. The "Crimsonl' has always
been one of our best Exchanges, but we hope the two of them will
overshadow all previous efforts.
A fine Literary department, in which the essay, "The Necktie," is
very clev-er, the "Curiosity Shop," and Exchange are some of the fine
features of the "Thistle,'l Cleveland, Qhio, but an Alumni department
might be added.

"The Pennantfl Elkhart, Ind.-Again we shall have to say that
"The Pennant" is a classy paper. The cartoons are very amusing and

"The Pennant," Elkhart, Incl.-We have nothing to suggest.
Your paper is excellent. It seems that you are especially interested in
Athletics.-"The Crimson," Logan, Utah.
'lThe Pennant," an excellent paper from Elkhart, Ind., has an
unusually neat and attractive cover, consisting of deep yellow paper
with a ship, the "Pinafore," in the center, representing the play given
by the school. The good grade of paper adds a great deal to the pub-
lication also. One is much impressed, in reading the sections, to 'note
that much care has been given to details, and every department is care-
fully written up. The Athletics certainly occupied a large amount
of space, and we consider it the best Athletic column in any of our
exchanges. It certainly shows that the Athletic Editor is a writer of
ability.-"Crimson," Louisville, Ky.
GOOD ADVICE FROM "THE TAMARACK," SPOKANE,
"Not a single student of normal character should try to exist in
High Schocl on a diet of studies alone. He should rather live school
life, using the broad meaning of the Word, and to do this, he must take
