from a passing steamer about a year before, suffering from an ugly cut on his
head. The captain of the vessel explained that he had fallen down an open
hatchway of 'Qhe ship, and left him on the isle for medical treatment.
Who he was, no one knew, for when he recovered from the injury, it was
found that he had no recollection of his former life, and could not even recall his
own name. During his delirium he had muttered things about "Murphy" and
this had been adopted as his name although he denied the ownership of the
Murphy 'iad been taken in by the old wireless operator at the tall station
which provided the only link between Asia and America, and had shown such a
marked aptitude for the work that Hereford, the old operator, had taught him
until he had grown to be an expert. Hereford went the way of all Hesh,
and Murphy naturally assumed the position.
As he sat there dreamily gazing out the long window at the miles of low
rocky hills revealed there, the sounder began to click and Murphy automatically
began to take down the message.
"The New York Planet," it began, and then followed the story of the fall
of Vladivostock into the hands of the allied Japanese and American fleets, with-
out the loss of a single American life. Murphy stopped. Something had
snapped in his head. Feverishlyv he took the rest of the message and then he
waited. Not getting the desired something he began sending the message.
McClure, sitting at his desk in the city room of the Sun, took the sheets of
"Himsy" from the excited copy boys and wondered.
"The New York Sun and Planet," it read, and there followed the story of the
fall of Vladivostock, written in the inimitable style of an old news writer, filled
with quaint dashes of humor, vivid description and heart-rending pathos over the
valiant struggle of the old Russian convicts, who were afraid to break from their
On the whole, it was a masterpiece, and McClure, sitting at his desk, won-
dered and was glad. The Sun was in on one of the biggest stories of the war.

THE PENNANT Nine
"Come right in, sir, they have been awaiting your arrival. You will
find them in the first room on the left," said the doorkeeper. These words
greatly mystified F red, as his visit was unknown to his brother, and the house
he had entered was much more pretentious than the picture he had seen 01
his brother's home. Fred could hear above all the other sounds, the noise of
a powerful wireless set in operation, in some distant part of the house. lie
thought his brother might have moved, so he proceeded along the hall to the
first door. Upon entering the room, he was still further amazed to find the
room filled with men, none of whom he knew, seated at a long table. At
his entrance, a man, who was seated at they head of the tabl-e, and who
later proved to be james W. Patterson, rose and walked toward him. '
"We have been awaiting you, Herr von Mecklenburgf, said Patterson,
after he had introduced himself. "I am sorry that the chief could not be here
to meet you, but he is at present engaged in blasting out a base for our
'subs' on Martha's Vineyard." By this statement McDonald knew that
he was in the headquarters of the German Imperial Secret Service in the
U. S. Being naturally quick of wit, McDonald knew that if he was detected
he would forfeit his life as the result.
"Those Yankee pigs are very strict in their search and I was delayed at the
Custom House," replied McDonald.
"You learned before you left Wilhelmstrasse that you were to take charge
of the Central Department, did you not P" questioned Patterson.
"Yes," replied McDonald.. .
"Where are your credentials ?" inquired Patterson.
"The searchers of the British patrol boats were too strict for my own
safety, so I destroyed them two hours out from Southampton."
"Com-e, take a seat at the table, and I will get your instructions and other
material," said Patterson, who went to a wall-safe ingeniously hidden behind
a large oil painting, from which he brought a small leather-bound book, and
"Here are your orders and a list of members .in your department. Guard
these papers carefully because you know what would happen if they fall into
the wrong hands. Cole, the man you are succeeding, was caught while trying
to blow up the dam at Kewanee. That is one of the big things that has to
be accomplished by your department in order to help paralyze the food situa-
tion. You must discourage the buying of war bonds all you can. Donit
be stingy with money either becgse you know 'every man has his price.' "
At this point the door was suddenly thrown open, and two men en-
"Who is this man ?" fairly shouted one of the men.
Two weeks later upon opening a box-car, the employes of the Columbus
Furniture Company of Columbus, Ohio. were horrified to find the dead 'body rf
a man later identified as Fred McDonald of Erie, Pennsylvania. The news-
papers in announcing the murder, stated that no clues had been discovered.
Ten THE PENNANT
When Jimmy Took French Leave
By Marlin Meiser, '18.
IMMIE was tall and handsome. Tall heroes are preferred for
most purposes and-well, they must be handsome. Not only did
Jimmie have the necessary qualifications, but he also had an acute
attack of hunger. Wie wish the reader to note this fact par-
ticularly, since it is upon this gastronomical condition that this story
For fear that the reader will stray under a false illusion, we wish to
state here that Jimmie was neither a motion picture hero nor a millionaires son.
He was-how it pains us to disclose this horrible fact-a second story man, yea,
Jimmie, regardless of the congested traffic, was hurrying to a nearby res-
taurant. His utter disregard for traffic formalities was evident when he
stepped directly in front of an oncoming automobile.
lt is not an extraordinary occurrence for a young woman to drive a car.
Also, it is not very desirable to be struck by one. But to be struck by an auto-
mobile driven by a beautiful girl is altogether extraordinarily desirable. So
thought Jimmie, when he regained consciousness in the arms of the above-
"I'm so sorry,'l she said. "VVon't you get into my car? I will take you
to my home and get a doctor. Are you badly hurt? I wasn't going fast."
It is doubtful if Jimmie made any reply to her questions. He could not
remember afterwards. VVhat he did remember was watching her as she skill-
fully drove the car all the way to the wonderful mansion where they stopped.
A butler came out to the car, and helped Jimmie into the house.
His injuries, much to his dismay, proved to be very slight-a pair of
bruised shins, and a lacerated head. VVhy, only three weeks before, Jimmie
had received two black eyes, a broken rib, and two mashed knuckles, in a fight.
Out of justice, to Jimmie, we must explain that two of his opponents are not yet
Now when the champion fighter and second story man found how insig-
nificant his injuries were, he was deeply ichagrined. He was receiving the best
of treatment from all members of the family. .This "regular" living appealed
to him. He was learning society ways. Both from observation and practice
he learned to eat salads at the right time and with the right fork. Through
the favor of the household he soon had committed to memory the respective
uses of the frock coat, evening suit and pajamas.
Not only was he learning etiquette, but, what to him was more important,
he learned that certain people of wealth were going south for the winter,
leaving in their homes, silverware in quantities not to be disregarded. He had
learned similar facts concerning the household in which he was staying. He
was not wasting a moment.
THE PENNANT Eleven
A few days before the tim-e he had decided to leave, Jimmie began to
act queerly. No longer did he sigh, when by the laws of etiquette, he was
obliged to leave his plate uncleaned. Gold-tipped cigarettes were of no in-
terest to him now. Jimmie was in love.
The morning of the day set for Jinnnie's departure, dawned fair. How-
ever, he did not seem to appreciate the weather, for at nine o'clock he had not
yet appeared for breakfast. Ten came, but no Jimmie. At eleven o'clock the
butler rapping on his door received no answer. A consultation was held con-
sisting of the fair motorist and her mother and father. No one was re-
sourceful enough to oFfer an explanation. The door was unlocked and they
entered. Everything was orderly. A large sack lay on the floor. The
butler opened it. It was filled with silverware. A note lay on the dresser.
The girl read it. It was as follows:
"I want you to no that I appreciate what you did for me. You have
changed my views of life. Yu'l find all of the silverware in the sak. I dicln't
hav time to put it bak. I had to ketch that midnite train to Canada. I am
going to join the Canadian Army.
From Over There
By Paul Ranger, ,18.
I T was one of those little country towns in Indiana-North Chester
', was the place, they say, where in the fall, gr-eat thick, almost oppres-
ll sive fogs roll up from the lowlands and swamps, enveloping the vil-
lage from the world. This village was different from Others, espec-
" ially in the fall of the year, when the long drizzling rains set in.
Leaves rotted and decayed here much the same as they did in other places, but how
lonesomely out of place they looked, decaying upon the steps, verandas, heaped
high in the eaves, in fact, wherever they had fallen. Still, people lived here
and were contented. ,
The people were different. They labored hard, were tanned, unshaven,
had long, unkempt hair, and drove big muscled horses across their fields, in
the village streets, and, on Sundays, tied them in the church-yard.
Their religion-it was long beards, broad-brimmed hats and black bonnets.
It was their dress. Their religion had made them conservative, and they cared
little for the world and its Vanities.
Then there came a Sabbath when a man from the outside world stood in
their simple, little pulpit and told them that someday, one, he knew not whom,
would come, from theirmidst and regenerate them and their village. He told
Twelve THE PENNANT
them, as a brother, that they were not real people and that they and their little
town were decaying. He was severe, and his words were remembered.
Progress had entered, disguised in some way, and probably when the vil-
lagers were unaware of its nearness. A print shop had been opened. "The
North Chester journal," it was called. "To be published once a week with news
concerning North Chester only," announced the first issue. They scorned itg
refused to buy it 3 later compromised, and, to-day, the journal is eagerly support-
ed at North Chester.
Father and son published the paper. Good men were both of them, printing
the journal with small profit to themselves.
Then one day the news of the great war came, probably through a traveler.
lt thrilled the young printer. There were weeks then, when the journal didn't

The Story the Service Flag Told
By james Smurr, '18,
Theres a little cottage standing
Down the street about half-way,
And I pass it going, coming
From school most every day.
'I'h'ere's a flag hung in the window
And in its heaven of white,
A star of blu-e is resting
For each son who went to light.
The mother gave all her boys
To light with death and chance,
And they were all together th-en,
Somewhere in far-OH: France.
But yesterday as I passed the door
Instead of the blue so bold,
Une star had changed its color
And was a dull, deep gold.
One of her boys had fallen
In some battle far away,
And a star of gold was placed there
For the blue one taken away.
Vacation time arrived and passed,
And, as I passed the cottage old,
Three more blue stars had fled,
And in their place was gold.
At the window sat the mother,
And her sad face seemed to say,
"I only regret I have no more
Brave sons to give awayf,

Z A DEPARTURE FRoM PRICCEDENT.
Departing from the time-honorecl precedent of issuing' two granluation
numbers, onewin llannary :incl one in May, The Pennant this year will combine the
two in one extra large issue to appear in Nay. lioth ISHS graduating classes
will be rcpresentecl in this number, each class having its own inrliviclual suction
of the niagazine.
I X -
Iwo reasons proniptccl the staff to make the change. Ono was because the
THE PENNANT Fifteen
january class is unusually small, too small in truth, to compile a graduation num-
ber that would be up to the high standard of the last few years. The other was
the desire, especially on the part of the business staff, to relieve, as much as pos-
sible, the city's business men from the need of heavy advertising.
As this is a period when conservation and thrift are necessary and are be-
ing widely practiced in other lines of endeavor, The Pennant feels it should like-
wise make some effort in that direction.
The Seniors, in combining forc-es, hope to make their joint issue the best
Pennant ever published. V '
' AN INVENTORY. i
The old year passes and the new year enters-and with the passing out of
the old year, the present staff prepares to lay down the pen, discard the blue
pencil, and abandon the typewriter. XVhile we of the staff must offer apology
for the scarcity of new illustrations in this issue which we have chosen to term
our conservation or thrift number, yet it is with some satisfaction that we look
back over the semesteris record.
Not for years has The Pennant for any other school paperj faced the sit-
uation that now exists in the advertising field. Due to heavy expenses and de-
creased profits which, of course, are traceable indirectly to the war, retrenehment
has gradually become an established policy among busin-ess men, and as a con-
sequence, Pennant advertising space has not been taken as readily as in the
past. Then, in, addition, there is always the ogre of rising printing and en-
graving costs to stare the weary business manager in the face.
Were it not for theihappy fact that The Pennant has been blessed with
such a capable and energetic business manager as Smith Frye has proven him-
self to be, the student publication of E. H. S. might now be in dire financial
straits. But, thanks to the good management and bustling activity of the busi-
ness staif, The Pennant has emerged from one of its most trying semesters with
its finances in good condition.
Perhaps the feature of the semester was the first issue, the October num-
ber, of which the engraving bill for illustrations was one of the largest, if not
the largest, ever received, exclusive of graduation issues. ,
It is with best wishes for the success of the incoming staff that we of the
vacating staff' complete four months of striving for the advancement and better-
ment of The Pennant and Elkhart High. May both institutions continue to grow
A SUGGESTION ON CHRISTMAS VACATIONS.
A prominent Elkhart merchant, a regular Pennant advertiser, has offered
the suggestion, for the consideration of the school board, that in the future,
public school pupils, and especially High school stud-ents, be dismissed for
their two-weeks' Christmas vacation a week earlier than has been the custom, in
order to enable the students to work during the Nrush period" just before the
holidays. Many students make a practice of earning their spending money dur-
Sixteen THE PENNANT
ing vacations, and, as Christmas vacation is of too brief duration for factory
employment, the job-seeker is therefore forced to turn to clerking, which, this
year, due to the fact that -Christmas was preceded by only two days of vacation,
proved very unsatisfactory, few of the extra clerks employed before Christmas
being retained during the remainder of th-e two-weeks, vacation period. The
suggestion seems entirely in keeping with the current national propaganda for
thrift and labor conservation. .
A STATEMENT FRoM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE FACULTY
SUCIAL coMivHTTEE. ,
By Miss Pearl Shafer.
For som-e reason, misunderstanding has arisen regarding tl1e real motives
of the Faculty Social Committee, and it is fair, both to the student body and to
the faculty committee that such misunderstanding be cleared.
We shall all agree with Dr. Dewey in ,his familiar definition: "Th-e
school is not a preparation for lifeg it is life!" If this is granted, then there
is need at every point that the individual should be linked to and made one with
the social whole. High schools must make adequate provision, along with allthe
changes that ane being made on the formal side of education, for the social
training of their pupils. Any school, whatever its situation or circumstances,
may use those agencies which train boys and girls to become morally self-reliant
men and women.
Une would expect therefore, that the same social standards prevailing for the
factory or for a public dance hall could not be maintained in the halls of a mod-
ern High school. The tone must necessarily be raised, and for this reason, it
must be purely a biased opinion to call our High school a "prison where doors
must be locked at 10:00."
Neighboring cities will point out the fact that the dance in proper form is
not the only form of clean amusement. Other means of entertainment, in fact,
bring more individuals into social activity and then serve better to socialize the
In connection with this same theory, an attempt is being made to secure
the co-operation of our patrons and patronesses-the parents of the present
school pupils. This being one of the foundation principles of the Parent-
Teacher Association, we have reason to believe it would work effectively in our
school socializing process.
We hope that such a progressive atmosphere will pervade our student body
as to render its criticisms of any forward movement not destructive but con-
structive, and that such a spirit of co-operation will be promoted that lines of
class and clique distinction must give way to a more catholic interest in the
whole. At any rate, the Faculty Committee is bent on success for this First
year's experiment, and it is "still on the job."
THE PENNANT Seventeen
ADVERTISERS' sLIPs-UsE THEM.
Do you want a bigger and better Pennant next term? Do you want to see
more photographs, cartoons, designs, and oth-er illustrations in the February
issue and all other future issues of The Pennant? Do you want the subscrip-
tion rates of The Pennant to remain at their present low scale? Needless to
say, your answer is in the affirmative.
But, if you really desire all of these things, you must "do your bit," or
they will be impossible of attainment. lt costs money-much money--to pub--
lish a school paper of the size and standard of The Pennant-too much money,
in fact, to permit of selling single copies for fifteen cents or yearly subscriptions
for one dollar, without the aid of money received from the sale of advertising
While it may be new to many Pennant subscribers, it is a fact that the dol-
lar they pay for a year's subscription covers only a small part of the cost of put-
ting a copy of each of the year's eight different numbers in their hands. If it
were not for the advertising, it would be impossible to give you The Pennant
you have been getting at anywhere near the price you have been getting it at.
Having digested these statements of fact, you can readily see you owe a
debt of gratitude to 'each and every advertiser in The Pennant.
How can you repay this debt? For the specific purpose of spurring Pen-
nant readers on to purchasing exclusively of Pennant advertisers, and of bring-
ing the advertisers to a greater realization that Pennant advertising pays, our
business manager has had printed and distributed' hundreds of small yellow
"advertisers slips." These slips read: "VVe saw your advertisement in The
Pennant," and you and every other Pennant reader are asked to accept some of
these advertisers' slips and, whenever making a purchase, no matter of what kind
or amount, of a Pennant advertiser. to present one of these slips when paying
for the purchase.
There are many local firms whose business is largely done with High
school students, particularly men's wear, confectionery, drug and sporting goods
stores, theatres and restaurants, and if every student would "do his bit," these
firms would be flooded with advertisers' slips, thus substantially proving to them
that "Pennant Advertising Paysf,
Besides the classes of business establishments named, there are scores of
others which would appreciate an acknowledgement that their Pennant adver-
tisements are read and bring results.
So, take this time to make a post-season resolution to boost The Pennant
and E. H. S. during 1918, and also in after years, by using the advertisers' slips
in the way they are intend-ed to be used. To facilitate the use of these slips.
small, handy "books" of the slips are to be distributed soon to E. H. S. students.
Use them and help The Pennant. ,
Far be it from us to complain, but the illumination of the P-ennant ofiice
after dark is somewhat too conducive of headaches to make typewriting or
editing a pleasure.
Eighteen THE PENNANT
Inter-class basketball is proving a success, ther-efore, The Pennant believes
that the inter-class plan should be used in other sports also. The Varsity teams.
of course, should continue to dominate the field of athletics tthat is necessary
to preserve a proper school spiritj, but the right of the inferior athlete to taste
of the benefits of athletic training should not be denied. Inter-class basketball
has shown us that about four times as many students are enabled to participate
in actual games than were the gymnasium given over solely to the Varsity
squads. .Indirectly, the inter-class competition aids the Yarsity by developing
new players capable of filling its gaps.
As the inter-class system has done in basketball, so should it do in track
and baseball. True it is that, last spring, inter-class track was introduced, but
not on a large scale. Baseball, the national game, and the neglected sport of
E. H. S., should feel the reviving inHuence of inter-class competition.
There is no better game played than baseball, yet, because so many who do
not fully understand the game, and consequently dislike it, refused to support
the teams, it was dropped as a major sport. While there is plenty of material
in the schools for a team or teams, still it is well nigh certain that the Athletic
Association would lose money should the game be restored as a major sport.
Rather than do without the game altogether, inter-class baseball should be played
this spring. The expense of an inter-class series would be small, and its success
would not hinge upon the size of the crowds witnessing the games. Four teams
in the series would mean that about fifty boys would see active service on the
diamond at some time or other. i
At mention of baseball, the track advocates usually make the declaration
that both cannot be successfully carried on at the same time. The answer to
this lies in the plan of having a Varsity track team with no inter-class track,
and inter-class baseball w-ith no Varsity baseball team. By the establishment of
a ruling making track men ineligible for baseball, conflicts would be avoided
and a far greater number of boys would get a chance to engage in athletics.
The plan should at least be given a thorough try-out.
Too many students "get through" with ease and not "E's".
Judging from the great variety of articles left lying for weeks on the hat-
racks it would appear that money means nothing to High school students.

TREASURE AND TRINKET FUND GOES OVER TOP.
Last September Miss Yan Nuys returned to us with the idea that the Eng-
lish Club might do something with the Treasure and Trinket fund. She pre-
sented it at the first meeting, the club deciding then to undertake a definite cam-
paign later in the semester.
The movement to collect treasures and trinkets originated with the women
of England. The proceeds go to the support of hospitals for wounded aviators,
a fact of interest to us because of our own boys in that branch of service.
Russell Poyser, preside-nt of the English Club, by appointing an efficient
connnittee to take charge of the campaign, did much to bring the movement to
a successful conclusion. The campaign was made a contest between the classes
during the last two weeks.
The final results were: Freslnnen-1-l lbs., Shox.: juniors. li! lbs., EP oz.:
Seniors-EP lbs., fl 4-5 oz.: Teachers-li lbs., lib oz.: Sophomores-ti lbs.. 14 oz.
The total weight approximated 50 pounds.
The contributions, the exact value of which is, of course, not known.
ranged from gold teeth to tea-pots. Even though the amount realized from the
"melting-down" be not great. there is much satisfaction to the contributor in
knowing he has done "his bit.',
ENGLISH CLUB ENJOYS ROYAL GOOD TIME.
Following a trail which led from Station 22 on the interurban line to llar-
mony Grove Farm, the hospitable home of Mr, and Mrs. R. M. Stewart, the
members of the English Club held their term's social event on December T.
.Xfter a bountiful picnic supper, a marslnnallow roast was enjoyed at an ideal
old-fashioned fireplace. Later, games and contests, a number of which had a
literary tinge, were arranged. Readings by Miss Vera Thornton and Miss
Louise Hoeckleman, and music added to the pleasure of the entertainment.
The committee planning the affair was composed of Miss Dorothy Winegard-
ner, VVarren Culp and Marlin M-eiser, with Miss Margaret VVilson as faculty
representative. Other members of the faculty present were Miss Yan Nuys.

ELKHART HIGH NOW A MEMBER OF PENTAGONAL
DEBATING LEAGUE OF NORTHERN INDIANA.
It is significant, that after the crushing defeat of last year in two debates
with outside teams, Elkhart High should be heady to plunge in again. It is
with a Hrm belief that we have as good material as any school and can there-
fore do things as well as others, that w-e have become a member of the Penta-
gonal Debating League of Northern Indiana. This organization was effected
at La Porte, Saturday, December 15, by members of the English department of
the High schools of La Porte, Mishawaka, Michigan City, Plymouth and
The teams are to be composed of eight students from each school, three
affirmative and three negative, each side having an alternate, who will act as
student representative when his team goes to another school, and who will take
part in debate if one of the regular team is unable to appear. Eligibility to the
team is the same as that for athletics. Boys and girls are to be given an equal
chance. The team will be chos-en in preliminary debate, the details of which
have not yet been decided, but it will probably be under the auspices of the
English Club, although contestants will not be limited to its membership.
A trophy in the form of a pentagonal shield will be given to the winning
school for the year. Should one school win for three consecutive years, the
shield would become its permanent property. Thus literary achievement will
be put upon a basis similar to that of athletics.
The schedule as planned is as follows:

Gladys llougjh. The elements, it would seem, were offended at this, and
thought to make them go on a hay wagon or truck instead. However, in spite
of melting snow, the bob was at the library at 7:30.
After a number of starts and stops. our destination was reached by 8:30.

TI-IE EDITOR'S SCRAP BOOK
Everybody is making scrap books for the "Sammi-es" so I have picked
up a few interesting bits here and there. and give them to you this month in-
stead of the usual monthly letter.
"Some whale story," I said as I read a letter from Claude Lehmann to his
aunt, lXlrs. L. IJ. McCoy. lle is with the U. S. A. Base Hospital No. 12 in
France. I thought it was a "whopper," but have been told since that it was
a baby whale that he described. Read it and judge for yourself.
"November 26th, 191T.
"I presume you folks really know more about war situations than we do
over here. Wie get the news direct from the front on this particular front, but
as to the other fronts, we get nothing more than press dispatches. I have not
been near -enough the line to see operations there, but judging from what I
hear and see everyday and from the tales the patients tell, a fellow has a mighty
slim chance of getting over without a serious wound of some sort. Talk about
running the gauntlet. Going 'over the top' is the worst gauntlet any man can
run. It's a no chance game. One is simply doomed and if he gets through he's
simply lucky, that's all.
"XVell, this is Thanksgiving week and pay week as well. VVe are all
looking forward to a 'big feed' Thursday. The food and the weather seem
to agree with me very well.
"Oh, I must tell you about a whale I saw the other day. The whale was
supposed to have been struck by a torpedo or a uiine, and his body washed
ashore with the tide. Ile was a monster, 63 feet long and about 14 feet through
the thickest part. I had to walk sixteen miles to see the carcass, but it was well
worth the walk. I am not exaggerating at all when I say some of his intestines
were about a foot in diametegz. His jaw was about eight feet across at the
base and about ten feet long. The fan-like portion of his tail would have made
a rudder large enough for a good-sized ship. I cut a tooth from his jaw for a

We get a few glimpses of the camp life at the Great Lakes Naval Training
camp from these extracts from a letter written by Paul Kornman:
"VVe hit the deck Cthat means get upj at 5 o'clock every morning. The
first thing is a cold shower bath. W'e clean up, shave and eat breakfast until
8 o'clock. Then there is drill or detail for work duty. At 11:15 retreat is

then on we have to ourselves. At 9:00 o'clock taps are sounded and all lights
"Don't worry about falling out of those hammocks. After getting used
to them, they are the finest sleeping in the world. The hammock is a heavy
piece of canvas, about three and one-half feet wide and a little over six feet
long. At the ends are regular hammock fastenings attached to pipe standards,
seven feet high from the floor. Inside of the hammock is a mattress about two
and a half feet wide and Five feet long. This is covered by a slip which also acts
as the under sheet and gets washed at least once a week. The cover is a pair
of heavy white blankets. I feel as natural sleeping in the air as if it were the
only place I ever slept. Believe me, it is fine sleeping. One can just start
swinging and rock to sleep.
"The food is good and the officers are considerate of the men."
Steven Hocker is a lieutenant of the Coast Guards in Maine. Here are
a few extracts from his letter to the folks at home:
"Have been going through the sam-e routine since writing last-the only
news is the arrival of about twenty new officers from the training camp and
the moving of 'my company from one barracks .to another, which was some
job, for, as we moved out, another company moved in. Think my company will

go to France before long, but, of course, being a reserve officer, I'll probably
not get to go until later.
"You mentioned fish-we usually have more fish than we want, on
Friday we always have fish of some variety, or clam chowder or lobster, but the
latter is quite costly now. I am getting so I can eat fish and enjoy them-
clam chowder never, oysters and lobsters slightly. One peculiar thing along
the eating line is beans and brown bread for breakfast. We have good
butter and cream. We have not been cut down on the use of sugar, but the
companies have and look for it to go still lower. Our mess usually gets what it
wants, but we pay for it.
"All has been quiet in the Coast Defense of Portland for some time.
Perhaps you do not understand the arrangement of things here. All the
defenses around here are built to protect Portland Harbor, Fort Williams,
Fort Preble, Fort McKinley, Fort Levitt, and Fort Baldwin. Fort Williams
and Fort Preble are on the mainland, the others on islands. Fort McKin-
ley, where I am stationed, is the largest fort, although the Coast Defense
headquarters are at Fort Williams. We have seven permanent barracks of
large size, capable of holding one hundred and fifty men, and one wooden
barrack. We have a larger place here than the permanent part of Fort Har-
rison. I donlt wonder at Indiana people not knowing much about coast def-enses.
Across a two-hundred yard channel we have another part of the fort on
Cow Island, a sntall place with one fairly large caliber battery and one battery
of small rapid fire guns covering a mine field Cpart of the bay in which mines
are plantedj. This island boasts of a power plant, wooden cantonment, a
tree or two and many rocks. It also boasts of the fact that the two-hundred
yard channel sometimes is so rough that it is impossible to cross in a boat.
The coast defenses of different cities in this section are grouped under what
is known as the Northwestern Dept. This is not a mobilization place like
Camp Taylor, in fact no men who have been drafted have been brought
"Fort McKinley is on an island, three-quarters of an hour's ride from
Portland. The people are nice and highly entertaining, and being here on an is-
land, are much like a large family."
A few more of our boys have enlisted in the U. S. service. Van Wea-
ver has gone to Ithica, N. Y., where he will train for several months for
admission to the officers' reserve in the aviation corps.
joseph Cochran has enlisted in the camoufiage division in Chicago.
Edward Kirkwood of Constantine, and formerly an E. H. S. student, has
gone to Garden City, N. Y., and is now in the navy.
Mac Gildea has won the right to wear the French green citation cord
for noble work don-e one night with the Truck division.
THE PENNANT Thirty-one
There have been a few marriages among the Alumni.
Gladys McClintic. llti, and Rex O. Vtiaterson were married Dec. 6. Mr.
Vlaterson was here on a furlough from the Great Lakes Naval Training Station.
Lora Ziesel, '15, and Arnold Stevens jackson were married in Cleve-
land on Dec. 25. They will make their home in New York City.
Several of our Alumni soldiers were home for Christmas, among them
being Dr. A. lNork from Camp Shelby, Louis Hager, Ross Martin and
Carl Treuschel from Camp Taylor, Robert linevels from Camp Shelby, Paul
Kornman, from the Great Lakes Naval Training Station, Lowell Flickinger
from London, Ontario, and NVhitney Chester who was here the first of December.
Each had a number of interesting tales to tell and some of them promised to
write us letters in the near future.
Among the Alumni students who were home from college for Christ-
mas vacation were john Chester, Frank Rogers. Herbert Snyder, Fred Mc-

the part of the other teams in regard to the team repre-
The Seniors, weakened by the graduation to the Yarsity squad of all
the stars of their last year's championship team, were unable to Hnish in the
first division, but displayed some of their former "pep," The juniors were
unable to co-operate sufficiently in their play, and as a consequence, Hnished
in the second position. Team-work seems to have been the most important
factor in the race for the banner. liecause of tfheir ability to work together
the men of Coach .-trnold's squad were able to carry the ball down the floor and
make repeated tries at the baskets. Zook and Stalter were the original "red
horse" men, and made baskets from all sorts of impossible angles. But the
most important cog of all in this Sophomore machine was a long, slim, light-
haired, blue-eyed youth by the name of Swayne. W I -
Kent participated in the first game of the tournament staged with the
T H E P E N N A N T Thirty-three
Freshmen. A "big league scout" in the form of Coach Rowe noticed his
antics and promptly signed him as a member of the first team squad. Con-
siderable argument then arose as to his eligibility to play in the remaining
games, but an agreement was reached that, since he had started the tourna-
ment, the Sophomores should be allowed to retain him. This decision was
highly favorable to the "Sophs" who promptly built their defensive and offen-
sive plans around Kent, and played to victory. Swayne was by far the best in-
dividual player of the tournament and was "just one mass of arms," as one
luckless opponent confided.
Anderson of the juniors was the largest individual point-winner, chalk-
ing up a total of 21 baskets in the six games i11 which he participated, for a total
of -l2 points. Masson, also of the Juniors, was second in the point race and
finished close behind Anderson, having placed the ball in the receptacle 17'
times for a total of CH points. Stalter followed closely with a total of CSIS
points, having located the basket in 13 field attempts, and seven times on free
throws. Carter finished fifth with a total of 351, having secured ll baskets
and three free throws. Zook and Swayne were tied for the next position.
each gaining 14 baskets and a total score of 28. Leas, in three games, was
able to count seven times, acquiring a total of 14. lt must be remembered that.
as the Seniors only played live games to their rivals' six, Carter really made a
better record than the figures show.
To select an all-star team composed of the different class team men in-
volves much thought and investigation. W'hile the playing qualities of one man
may be fundamentally as good as those of another, the manner of play of the
one may be dull and plodding while the other's stands out from that of his
team-mates and impresses the coach and spectators more forcibly. After an
interview with Coach Rowe, the editor selected the following all-star fives.
Swayne, of course, would fill the center position of 'sudh atpam, and Ander-
son, who is essentially a forward, not a center in which position he frolicked
for the Juniors, would fill one forward station. Carter, of the Seniors, has
been chosen for hiserunning mate. For running guard, Vifambaugh, also of
the juniors, was selected, being able to cover the fioor at a fast pace and pos-
sessing the ability to shoot a basket when necessary. The other position, of
back guard. was the subject of much discussion, but would seem to be the most
capably Hlled by Rodell of the Seniors.
For a second team to provide a reserve squad for the first team, Zook
and Stalter would perform in forward positions, Russell and Hall would be
guards, and Poyser of the Seniors, who seems to be better fitted to be center.
rather than forward, would fill the middle station.
Coach Arnold deserves some credit for his team's success. although he
professes no claim to any honors, declaring that "they were a self-made team."
Perhaps Mr. Arnold's recent experiences as referee of inter-scholastic games
have provided him with a number of trick plays. At any rate, his work of hold-
ing the team together in a solid unit deserves much credit.
Since inter-class basketball has proved 'so successful it seems deplorable
that the schedule should not be extended until the close of the season, and that
fhirty-four T H E P E N N A N T
other lines of athletics should not be strengthened by inter-class competition.
Aside from the small amount that is realized by the Athletic Association from
the ticket sale for the inter-class games and the physical good derived by the
players, there is the invaluable service rendered to the Varsity squad, by
providing a wider selection of players.
BLUE AND WHITE SHADES GOSHEN 12-11 IN WHIRL-
Between fifty and seventy-five Elkhart fans journeyed to Goshen on Fri-
day, December 1-l, and witnessed the defeat of our greatest rivals in an un-
usually fast and exciting contest, 12 to 11. After the game the usual good
time was had by all, many accepting the generous invitation of the VVinship
family, former Elkhartans, who opened their home to the entire E. H. S. crowd.
The game opened with a rush at the sounding of the whistle of Referee
Overholcer of La Porte, and the speed remained undiminished during the game.
Neither side was able to place free throws with any degree of accuracy, A1-
bright being successful in but two out of eight attempts. Williams scored
four times out of twelve tries and Landis scored on his only try.
Excitement was intense and the yelling furious during the second half, when
neither side was able to gain an advantage, the deciding shot not being made
until the last few moments of play.
To go into details, Darling started the scoring with a spectacular throw
which was followed by a well directed toss by B-entz. Albright succeeded
in placing a free throw ending the half 5 to 4, Williams of Goshen having ac-
cumulated a free throw and a field goal, and Landis a free throw.
In the second period, Albright gained two baskets and one more free
throw, and Seeberger also found an opportunity to register. Williams re-
taliated with three free throws, and Landis counted twice making a total
of eleven to the twelve that had been acquired by Elkhart.
For the Blue and White, Darling performed well in the center station,
but was replaced in the second frame by Swayne, who cavorted very success-
fully: Albright and Rentz played a superior brand of basketball in the
forward positionsg and Seeberger and Paulson played guard with unusual
For Goshen, Steffen at center played his position wellg Williams and
Landis as forwards, played effectivelyg and Bement and Swanberg filled the
positions at guard.
judging from this game, E. H. S. should win by a greater margin when
Goshen tackles the locals in the home Gym on Saturday, January 14.
BLUE AND WHITE BRAVES COLD AND DEFEATS
NAPPANEE 36 T0 25.
E. H. S. basket-ballers journeyed to Nappanee on the eve of january
11 and incidentally defeated a team composed of the inhabitants, 36 to 25.
THE PENNANT Thirty-five
In order to reach Nappanee on this particular eve, it was necessary to travel by
means of a number of ancient autos over severely rough roads made almost
impossible of traffic becau-se of snow. About twenty-live, however, including
the team, summoned enough courage and cash to make the trip.
Nappanee provided an excellent playing Hoor in her new gym, and the
arrangement of the baskets was especially good. The team which opposed the
Blue and VVhite was one of the cleanest-playing lives encounter-ed for some
time. Elkhart prospects looked bad at the first of the game, the ruralites
gaining a total of five points to the three that w-ere the share of the Blue and
VVhite. Seeing the result of half-hearted playing, the locals got into the game
and at the end of the first half were treading on the heels of the "Naps," 19

Darling was conspicuous in the center position and counted three times:
Capt. Albright and Bentz covered a great deal of territory and were successful
six times each, Seeberger and Paulson were efficient as guards, Seeberger
caging the ball twice, and Swartz ambled to advantage in Paulson's position.
Bentz also made two free throws.
Prickett, captain and forward of the Nappanee team, played well in the
forward station and gained five baskets: Kvnobel, his team-mate, was suc-
cessful in two tries from the field and three times on free throwsg Hatter, the
center, ,counted three times, and Mutschler once:

ELKHART GIRLS VICTORS AT AUBURN, 20-133 G-OSI-IEN
UNABLE T0 REACH ELKHART FOR GAME.
The Blue and Wihite girls were victorious at Auburn on Friday, January
11, 20-13. The Auburn live was somewhat tired by the 17-15 defeat at the
hands of Angola the night before, which fact undoubtedly accounts for their
Margaret Frye carried off the basket-shooting honors, gaining 18 of the
20 points scored by Elkhart. Gladys Hough was successful in one attempt.
After the game, just before leaving Auburn, some of the Blue and VVliite
girls suffered severely from the cold, but later found consolation in a "feed"
donated by some of the passengers on the train.
Yllzirty-sin: T H E P E N N A N 'l'
E. H. S. was represented by Zena Dinehart and Florence Herrick in the
center stations: Margaret Frye and Gladys Hough as forwards: and Loraine
Pettit and Mary Krause as guards. .
Because of the blizzard and the resultant traffic blockade, Goshen was
unable to reach Elkhart for the game scheduled for Saturday, january 12.
The game was postponed to Wednesday, January 23.
SENIORS AND FRESHMEN BOW T0 JUNIORS AND
3 SOPHOMORESQ JUNIOR G-IRLS WIN.
The fourth series of interclass games staged in the gym on December
12 resulted in the complete defeat of the Freshmen by the Sophomores, 29
to 5, and the milder defeat administered to the Seniors by the Juniors, 113 to
10. The Junior girls were also victorious, def-eating the Seniors 10 to 9.
For the Sophomores, Swayne, Stalter and Zook performed in tlieir
usual brilliant fashion, while Harter, Brown and Nnlf did good work for the
Freshmen. Sophomore tactics bewildered the younger boys and speed won
the game. Team-work was also a great factor in the play of the "Sophs."
The lineups were: Sophomores-Congdon, centerg Stalter and Zook.

Freshmen-Harter, center, Brown and Nulf, forwards: Keil and W'ine-

Free throws--Brown, 1: Nulf, 25 Stalter, 3.
The juniors and Seniors were well matched, but Junior basketball was
of a somewhat superior brand to that displayed by the Seniors. The game
was unexciting, and moved slowly.
Masson. Anderson, and Waiiibaiigh performed in the star roles for the
juniors, and Carter and Hagans lilled the forward positions for the Seniors
with considerable success.
Anderson, ccnterg Masson and Vifambaugh, forwardsg Griffin and Adams,

ALUMNI GIVE SCHOOL FIVE HARD TUSSLE IN 36 TO 28
The "old boys" proved their ability to come hack, in a hard fought game
on Friday, December 21, giving the High school five a great tnssle for the
honors, though losing 2443 to 28, About two hundred fans witnessed the bat-
tle, including an Alumni group whose endeavors to rival the undergraduates'
lusty yelling were met with hearty laughter. The game was one of the fastest
and most spirited contests seen in the gym for some time, and kept the interest
of the spectators constantly at fever-heat.
For the Alumni, Stahr covered the floor at a pace almost equal to the
manner in which he played at the state tournament two years ago when he re-
ceived the title of the lgest individual player on the Hoor. Meyers, form-er
school center, ofliciated in his old position, and showed considerable evidence
of practice indulged in when the coaches of the class teams were not in sight.
VYineland returned from De Pauw in time to play his old smashing game at
guard, and Hunter, former star QPJ of the Senior team, showed up well at
the other guard position.
Albright, Darling and llentz divided the basket-shooting honors, being
successful in seven, five and six attempts, respectively. Seeberger and Paul-
son played their positions in unusually vigorous fashion, sticking to the ball
with apparent affection.
Again. as in former games, the school five was unable to place free
throws, being unsuccessful in all five of their opportunities. Meyers of the
graduates, dropped the ball into the basket four times out of a possible four.
while Stahr and McCoy could not find the basket in their tries.
The second half saw three new faces in the Alumni line-up in the per-
sons of Stahr, Turnock and llliss.
High school was represented by Darling, center: Albright and llientz,
forwards: Seeberger and Paulson, guards. '
The Alumni line-up included such old stars as Meyers, centerg Struble

SENIORS FALL BEFORE SOPHOMORES 16-6g JUNIORS
WALLOP FRESHMEN 29-5 IN FIFTH SERIES.
Relative positions of interclass teams were not altered by the ocntests
staged in the gym on Friday, December l4, the Soplhomores fulfilling all
predictions and walloping the Seniors, 16 to 6, and the Juniors routing the
Freshmen, 29 to 5.
Sophomore prospects looked bad at the end of the first half, the score

being against them, 5 to 2. This rather upset the dope for the Sophomores
were slated to win. The advent of Swayne in the second half inspired some
much needed "pep,l' and then the game really started. Russell and Hall were
revelations as guards and Zook, who replaced Hess, and Stalter managed to
find the basket :several times. For the losers, Carter and Poyser as forwards,
played a whirl-wind game, although they were unable to score during the sec-
The lineups were: Seniors-Lesher, center, Carter and Poyser, forwards,

Free throws-Poyser, 13 Rodell, 1.
The Freshmen were completely outclassed by the juniors, whose basket
was seldom asszriled by the unventuresome youngst-ers.
Anderson.. hlasson and Vllambaugh played the stellar positions for the
juniors, and figured in all the scoring. Griffin and Sorenson were allowed to
eavort for the victors, much to the delight of the spectators who were totally
unacquainted with the class of playing which these two youths displayed. This
contest also marked the debut of Fritz and Stover as players, their appear-
ance being greeted with much delight by Freshman fans.

SOPI-IOMORIES WIN INTER-CLASS TITLE BY DOWNING
J UNIORS, 23 T0 16, IN CONCLUDING SERIES.
The Sophomore five clinched its claim for the inter-class championship
series when it came out victorious in itssixth and last scheduled contest on
December 19, vanquishing the fighting Juniors, 23 to 16.
Junior stock was above par when the game opened, and many spectators
expected to see the team repeat its performance of last year and carry off the
inter-class pennant. However, after several minutes of play, in which the
diminutive "Sophs'l rang up several goals without allowing their opponents to
score, it dropped to its normal value and kept dropping until the second half,
when it rose slightly during the time when the Juniors made a desperate at-
tempt to cut down a 19-8 lead. They were successful in making S points be-
fore they were stopped. but, wearied by their efforts, they allowed the "Sophs"
to gain another basket.
Roth teams included men with first team coaching, Swayne having been
promoted to the first squad at the opening of the year, after the first inter-class

l'L'l.lLlC SCORN VERSUS TUNSORIAL ADURNMENT.
By One lVho llas Suffered Much.
Some poet-we suspect it was Bryant-has sung of "men who bore the
1nark of scorn.' There no longer is any doubt in our mind of the poet's
meaning. Of course, the English teacher will say he was referring to the
lepers of olden times. llut we men of experience thunder back a stern and
uncompromising denial. The poet, when he wrote "mark of scorn," meant
this, and this only-"mustache"
Any free-born liigb school student of male characteristics. who has ever
had the courage, perseverance, patience, will pow-er and a multitude of other
virtues, to make a serious attempt to persuade a minature spot of slightly-

full-Hedged, out-and-out patch of sturdy undergrowtb, knows full well the
meaning of the "mark of scornfl
VW, who so bravely bear on our upper lips the tonsorial "mark of scorn"
have suffered all the tortures of an ltalian stranded high and dry on a desert
isle without a yard of spaghetti on his person.
lfle who walks behind the camouflage of a mustacbio knows every epithet
ever used, by heart, and is absolutely calloused against further inroads on his
pride and self-respect if be has any left.
Wlhen jibes, jests and sarcasm no longer produce an effect, resort is
sometimes had to violence. The writer has seen one highly respected young
Senior located somewhere beneath a mountain of unscrupulous youths, an-
other young villain carefully manipulating a pair of scissors inhsnch a man-
ner as to entirely sever diplomatic relations between the epidermis of the
unfortunate one beneath the heap, and at least one-third of said unfortunate
ones upper lip protection, the number of hairs being thus rudely slaughtered
easily reaching the sum total of six or seven. Imagine the horror and humilia-
tion of the unfortunate one's having to traverse the public thoroughfares while
wending his way liomeward, with the adornment of his upper lip thus terribly

VValter Camp or "Stew' Cochran never knew the true meaning of the word.
lVhat greater happiness can a 111011 have than the effervescent joy of observ-
ing in a weary mirror seventeen times daily the marvelous progress of the
"apple of his eye" as it leaps to maturity? And yet, the multitude, the
plebians, would deny the care-worn student this one privilege-this one con-
cession. Ah, cruel world, we shall foil them all, and before violence can be
used, we shall give that Christmas "safety" the test of its life. If the blades
hold out, we shall remove all trace of the "mark of scorn" and thereby again
enter the world cn a free and equal basis. Once again we shall dare to look the
world in the eye, and no longer will we slink by, our face buried, as we pass
the few friends who remained loyal to us through our period of public degrada-

l'il'UIll the distance it is but an indistinct roarg closer it resembl-es the

rather tender years, engaged in the never-ending pursuit of the Perfect Copy.

copy, perfect except one character yet to strike, the finger that should have struck

danger that the atmosphere will become slightly heated and the young women
present be dreadfully shocked.
And the pursuit of the Perfect Copy continues unabated.
