EMERY TOOGOOD Mechanical Drawing University of Michigan Commercial GRACE HARPER Iowa State Normal Miami University Columbia University Mathematics ELIZABETH AITKEN University of Chicago Ypsilante, Mich. Ann Harbor. Mich. Sixteen JjovjerXi J Seventeen EMMA SCHLOSSER— English " Her modest looks a cottage might adorn, Sweet as the primrose peeps beneath the thorn. " " Bill ' s ever- ready smile and beauty has made her a coveted member by all class masculines. She was a member of the Motto Committee and had the role of Dolly in " Dolly Reforming- Herself " , and L. Sims in " The Twelve Pound Look. " Domestic Science is her best liked subject. She says she likes to eat candy, go sailing, and drive the Dodge, but dislikes very much to study and write notes? She intends to tour the East and West after leaving High School. WALLACE STOVER— English " Talent creates a work; genius keeps it from dying. " " Pete. " as he is always called, has something the most of us cannot claim — an unusual talent for cartoon drawing, which accounts for his office of Pennant art editor for four terms. He also has been president, treasurer and acted on the social committee of his class. " Pete " is an athlete, having- played varsity baseball and basketball in 1920 and 21. He also took part in the interclass basketball games and was on the second football squad of 1919 and ' 20. His likes are consistent with his activities — athletics. " Pete " intends to take a post-graduate course in Elkhart High School and then he will enter the Chicago Art Institute where he will prepare for a very promising future. MILDRED BERGER O, blessed with the temper whose unclouded ray Can make tomorrow more cheerful than today. " Milly " is always associated with a giggle or a big " smile. She entertained the class most royally a couple of times during its four years of school life. " Milly " says she likes Doris and " Bill " , eating and driving- to Goshen with the gang about as well as anything- that she knows of, but she tried to tell us she did not like the boys. During - her four years of school she was vice-president of the II B class, served on the II A social committee and on the Will committee. She made her first appearance on the stage as leading lady in " How the Vote Was Won. " Milly intends to enter North Western College next year and have a grand and giorious time. HAROLD PLATT — Commercial " He only who is able to stand alone is qualified for society. " Harold is our class president and also held this office as a IID. He has been class treasurer as a IC, on the Social committee as IIC and IA, and also on the Invitation committee. Harold displayed his dramatic ability when he acted the role of Ned Grayson in " The Colonel ' s Maid. " He helped on the baseball team while a Junior. Zoology has always been his favorite subject in which an " E " is always forthcoming. His likes are skating, swimming-, dancing and tennis but he refuses to love girls with bobbed hair. As a classmate Harold has always been one of the foremost to promote the interests of the class and we sincerely wish him the best of luck when he enters Chicago University next fall. DORIS HUSTED— English " Let the World Slide. " " Dody " is an easy-going- sort without a care in the world, and always looks on the bright side of things. She was secretary while a IID, member of the Social committee IB and IIA. She was given the role of Julia Carol in " The Colonel ' s Maid, " and was a suffragette in " How the Vote Was Won. " She says she likes exciting B. B. games, writing notes, and " Millie " and gossip, but dislikes politics ami rehearsals. Studying up on Mental Telepathy is her hobby. When asked what she intends to do in the future, she replied, " See the world. " Our best wishes, Doris. Eighteen WAUFERD PICKRELL— Industrial " A heart to resolve, a head to contrive, and a hand to execute. " As a willing- worker, " Pick " has often been called upon to help the class out of many difficulties. His careful management of finan- cial affairs has been displayed in bis work as treasurer of the gradu- ating- class. During bis high school career he has worked on the Social committee and was the instigator of the old clothes movement which prevailed for some time in Elkhart High School. In 1920 " Pick " went out for track in which sport he has always taken a great inter- est. Skating, cut-outs, and certain underclass girls form bis chief likes while he ruly dislikes getting up in the morning " as well as going to bed at night. Next fall will find " Pick " at Purdue preparing for bis life work as a landscape designer. FERN RUSSELL— Commercial Those things which are not practical Are not desirable. " Funny " came from Benton Harbor two years ago and since then has won her way into many hearts with her pleasant smile and modest ways. She has also won fame in typewriting " and short-hand, getting several certificates in these subjects and winning many " E ' s " in other subjects. She served on the Senior Banquet Ticket com- mittee. She states that she likes her chum, Wienie, the Z.T.A. ' s, office work for Mr. Rowe. football and basketball games and most everything except Economies, and that she dislikes in big letters. After graduating she intends to have some good times, then hold down a chair in some office, try court-reporting and then — who knows? URSA WALKER " The mildest manner and the bravest mind. " Ursa did not join the class until in bis Senior year, but in his last year he was one of the most active fellows in the class, attending all class parties. Although not very prominent in athletics he was one of the best players on Senior Interclass team of 1920-21. He was also a member of the 1920 track squad. THELMA MERKLING— English " The mildest manners and the gentlest heart. " " Thilmy " came to us in our Junior year. She is a very quiet, modest girl, who has minded her own business so much that few of the class have been able to get acquainted with her. Those who know her well can testify as to her agreeable and amiable disposition. She likes music, art and reading, but dislikes studying and the boys. She intends to take up mechanical drafting after leaving high school. KENNETH BOtC E— English " Life would be disagreeable if it were not for its pleasures. " " Runt " came to our class at the beginning of the Senior year. He was on the Picture committee and reporter for the Pennant IIA. Mathematics is his specialty. He says he likes to argue with LeMaster and dislikes South Bend. We wonder why. " Runt " says he hasn ' t decided anything for the future. Nineteen HARRIETT H E RRO L D— I ndustrial She is pretty to walk with Witty to talk with And pleasant too, to think on. " Harrie " has always been " Johnny on the spot " whenever there was work to be done or a good time to be had. She always went to the class parties and helped the fun along " . During the four years of school she was secretary of the IIC class, on the IB and IA Social committee and on the Announcement and Card, and Senior Banquet " Eats " committees. She says that her favorite like is swimming but she also likes shrimp wiggle and to serve at football dinners. She simply detests to write up note-books and eat cocoanut. Her one ambition is to be a thoroughly successful interior decorator. We all hope her ambition is realized. JOE WEAVER— Commercial " I dare do all that may become a man; who dares do more, is none. " Joe is one of those seemingly quiet fellows but an acquaintance proves that he is full of the right spirit. He has served as the IC vice-president and on the social and picture committees. As an athletic Joe, in 191b, received a monogram for football on the second team. Strawberries seem to rank highest among " his likes while he claims a decided dislike for Commercial Law. Joe has been specializing " in commercial subjects and intends soon, to take up the Study of Commerce. DOROTHY OSBORNE— Glory is like beauty: It is heightened by modesty. " Dot " , although never holding an office in school, has always been on the sidelines ready to do her share. She is another one o the famous blondes in the class. " Dot " dislikes very much to gossip?, hurry or wash dishes but declares she could spend all her time dancing ' , traveling " , or going to the movies. She made her first appearance on the stage in the play " How the Vote Was Won. " She intends to some day become a dancer in the Follies. We all wish her the best of success and hope we may see her at the height of her fame. MARK MONTEITH " Erich " , as he is generally known, was never present at many of our class parties but always showed a particular interest in ath- letics of all kinds. In fact he played for several years on the baseball teams of the school, also on the football squad. Ot present he is employed by Godfrey Conveyor Company. ARLENE PETERSON— English " Sweetly and stately, and with all the grace of Womanhood. " Arlene. sometimes known as ' Red " because of the attractive brightness of her hair, says that she dislikes red hair, conceited people, oysters and dish-washing ' , and she likes dancing 1 , movies, eating ice cream, and pretty clothes. She was suffragette in " How the Vote Was Won. " She intends to attend Fine Arts at Chicago next Fall. Twenty EDGAR SHEPHERD— Latin " Some men were born to do great things; others merely to eat. " " Skinny " is our fat man. He is ever present at all parties and he always manages to be around the " Eats " . During his term as Social Committee chairman we noticed at all social gatherings we had a good feed and Edgar was always the last to finish. He has been slinging hash t Tom Keeth ' s restaurant and we sorto feel sorry for Tom. They say fat people are always jolly and Edgar is every bit that. Here ' s wishing you success in the future. NELLIE PHYLLIS MOLL E N H O U R— Commercial " Keep your face always toward the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you. " Nellie, sometimes " Hiram " , is a most capable, likeable and sen- sible girl. She was on the Social committee while a IID. IC. IA and was chairman of the Social committee while a IIA. She was also on the Pin and Ring committee, Flower and Color committee and Thanksgiving Banquet committee. As a staff typist she surely has plaved her part. She played center on the vasity B. B. team during her Junior year. She was given the role of Marjorie Byrd in " The Colonei ' s Maid. " Nellie says she intends to be a stenographer always trying to advance. She likes canoeing, candy, dancing, and most everything, and dislikes cooking, sewing, carrots and dish-washing. She ' ll get over the last in time, won ' t she, boys? BILL STEPHENS— " Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well. " Bill made a hit with everyone the minute he entered the doors of E. H. S. His popularity is shown by the many offices he held, which are: Athletic editor, business manager, president IA class, president Qui Vive English club, football representative 1920. and sargent-at- arms of Senior English club. He showed his dramatic ability in " L,e Vovage de Monsieur Perrichon " as Monsieur Perriehon, and in " The Colonel ' s Maid " as Bob Rudd. Bill proved quite an athlete, getting an " E " in baseball, football, and basketball in 192 " . But he also has time for other things, as is shown by the fact that he likes nice girls and specializes in one thing — love. The only dislike he seems to have is raw oysters. After graduation Bill intends to become a serious business man. MILDRED BITTINGER — Commercial " Thogh lost to sight, to memory dear Thou always will remain. " " Billie " . though small, was nevertheless mighty in all school affairs, holding some office most of the time. She served on the Social committee when a IID and IC. president when a IIC. secretary as an IB. and vice-president when a IIA. She also always honored the class parties with her presence. Billie dislikes " sissy " boys but cares very much for chocolate candy, dates (both kinds) and dancing. After finishing school she intends to become a stenographer until — only the future can tell. JOHN LOCKTON— " I am afraid to state my views. " John was a favorite with both sexes from the time he joined the class in 1919 until graduation. He served on the Commencement Invitation. Class Motto, and Senior Banquet committees. John played in LeVoyage de Monsieur Perrichon and as Colonel Rudd in " The Colonel ' s Maid. " He won an " E " in football for 1920 and also many other E ' s in his subjects, getting four the last semester. John likes everything to eat. and really tried to make us believe he dislikes anything feminine. He intends to enter the University of Michigan next year. Twent-one V !% , f- ELLA MARIE R I C HA R DSON— Commercial " Jitney " is ever on the run, She simply bubbles o ' er with fun; Her tongue is forever on the go, Oh, no, Ella Marie, you are not stow. Ella Marie is the original live-wire girl. Her prominence in school affairs is told by this list of honors: Chairman of Class Social com- mittee IB, member of same IC and IIB, president of Girls ' Rooting " club and the first girl yell leader in E. H. S. She says she likes dates with talkative fellows and eating " spaghetti and abhores cheese and shrimp. She hopes to become a private ddetective some day. Watch your step, " Jitney " . EVERETT DANIELSON— English " I am no herald to inquire of a man ' s pedigrees; it sufficeth if I know his virtues. " " Vic " is known to the class as a willing - listener but never in- clined to be so willing a talker. Rather shy of the fairer sex, he has seldom, if ever, attended the class parties. In the French play, " Vic " , he showed great talent and as an athlete he has taken part in nearly everything — baseball, football, track and basketball. He was appointed as a committee for the athletic records of the IIA class. Baseball and pinochle are his favorite pastimes, but making speeches never appealed to him. Next year " Vic " will attend college, specializing in foreign language. ESTHER MITCHELL— Commercial " A merry heart goes all the day, Your sad tires in a mile — A. " Esther, who is sometimes called " Patty " , is noted for her blonde hair and blue eyes. She says she likes canoeing, which sounds inter- esting and also the Z.T.A. parties and fudge. But she doesn ' t like to wash dishes or study Commercial Law. She helped to make the class parties a success during the IIC and IIB terms by serving on the Social committee, and she was also secretary during the IA term. She specialized in shorthand and typewriting in school and expects to become a private secretary in the future. ARTHUR MARSHALL " Art " was always a prominent member of June ' 20 class. He joined our class rather late in the year, nevertheless he was usually present at class affairs. Art ' s likes and dislikes are not numerous but he always showed a strong favor for commercial subjects. At present he is clerking in one of the drygoods establishments of the city. CICILY YODER— English " Be ye happy whose fortunes are already complete. " Stately and dignified, this Senior carries with her an air of satis- faction and contentment wherever she goes. She is conscientious, almost to a fault, quiet and studious. She was member of the Motto committee and a member of the Social committee. She likes Morse ' s and Beechnut gum. She is soon to become a member of a class of two. Twen ty-two ETHEL VERNIER — Commercial " All who joy would win must share it — happiness was born a twin. " •Shorty " or " Peggy " is the real joy of the class and naturally served on " the Social committee as chairman, as well as on the Picture committee, and as secretary while a IB. To be an excellent stenographer, and receive a suitable position in this work are the aims of " Shorty " . Her likes, which are very numerous, include Polly. Fern. Xaomi, swimming, dancing, class parties and office work. As her dislikes, which are also quite numerous, she names Commercial Law Economics, custards and. worst of all — parting with friends, After completing high school. " Shorty " intends to retain her reputa- tion for having good times. JESS LONGLEY — Commercial " I resolved, that, like the sun, as long as my day lasted, I would look on the bright side of everything. " " Bones " came to our class last Fall, having been secretary, IIC and IIA chairman of Social committee of the June ' 20 class and a member of the Individual Record committee of our class. He has been Joke editor, reported and assistant business manager for the Pennant. He was given the role of Quintus Hortensius in the Latin plav which was given a year ago by the Latin classes. He says he is specializing in the commercial course and intends to go to Otter- bein university. He likes skating, dancing and " Pick " and dislikes cranky session room teachers and changing seats. However, he seems to have been fond of the latter. MABEL KANTZ— It is the noblest of all possessions. " " Good character is property, Although " Patty " has not always been with us in our four years of gathering up knowledge, we consider her a welcome addition to the class. She tells us that she likes sugar and plums and everything nice and also the boys who don ' t play dice. But since she dislikes anyone who tries to boss her. we have our grave doubts for her future. Her ambition is to be a sewing teacher ami the class wishes her all possible success in this work. JESS PRIEM — English " Let all things be done decently and in order. " " Pete " is well known by his ever-present smile. Though never active in class- work, he had plenty of school spirit and did work on the football team in 1920. Sports are his favorite amusements. such as athletics, swimming, riding and hunting, but contrary to the most of us he is not fond of sleeping and has a dislike for the terpsichorean art. In his high school work Jess has specialized in machine shop. Upon finishing high school he will take up engineering at some college, then, he says, he will get married and buy a Ford. The class extends its heartiest wishes to him in his worthy intentions. PALMYRA OPFER — Commercial " In Maiden Meditation, fancy free. " " Polly " usually seen with Peggy and Funny has always been known by her giggle and everlasting good nature. She has shown the class some good times at her home and has helped out in other class affairs by being IIB treasurer and IB Social committee chairman. She says she likes Dot Tillman, especially, exciting basketball and football games and anything with chocolate in it. But she classes herself with those who dislike Kconomics and Commercial Law. After graduation Polly intends to have a good time all the time and do her best to be a Social secretary some day. C JU-e -Ks Twenty-three HERMAN ORT— Industrial " The deepest rivers have the least sound. " " Hum " , or " Herm " , is business from start to finish. But during: his high school career he has found considerable time for athletics. In 1918 he took part in the interclass baseball, in 1919 he played on the Mohawks — a well known high school team; in 1920 he was captain of the varsity baseball team and in the same year received his mono- gram for his excellent work on the second football squad. As an IA " Hum ' claims the exalted position of sargent-at-arms. Without further information we all know his favorite sport is baseball although he. likes all athletics in general. His main dislike in subjects is English. " Hum " has taken up industrial work as a specialty and intends to enter the newspaper business before going to college. BERNICE FARLEY— English " There is a certain dignity to be kept up in pleasures as well as in business. " May " BEE " always be as she has been — held in esteem by all who made her acquaintance. She was almost always present at the basketball games and always did her share at high school dances. " Bee " and " Vi " form an invincible couple and one seems rather in- complete without the other. Violet, Elkhart High School and movies are stated by " Bee " as her likes and Blue Mondays, huckleberries and sermons as her decided dislikes. After graduation, she says, she will aim to kill two birds with one stone. May the best success ever be with her. ELDON MCLAUGHLIN— College Prep " Knowledge is power. " " Musty Suffer " is known by all the high school from the smallest to the largest. Always present at class parties many a laugh has been the result of his unusual wit. He has taken part in athletics as left tackle on the second football team and also in interclass basketball. His ability in acting was shown when he took part in " The Colonel ' s Maid " , " Three Pills in a Bottle " and " How the Vote Was Won. " " Musty " has been the recipient of many E ' s, especially in History and Civics. He is very fond of hard cider and of raising mustaches but all you girls who possess red hair should best shun " Musty " . His intentions are to enter Illinois State university. HELEN PATTERSON— " Pat " " She could talk! Oh, how she could talk! " Laughing and giggling day-in and day-out, " Pat " was happiest when surrounded by her host of admirers. Greatness of size is not an essential characteristic of the Seniors. If it were, we fear Helen ' s name would not appear in the list. RUSSEL KISTNER— English " I know a trick worth two of that. " Russell, the foremost athlete of the class, may also be accredited on the social and individual record committees. The Pennant has benefitted by his services inasmuch as he faithfully wrote up all the athletic news during his Senior year. Throughout his high schol career he has played basketball, the last two years on the first team of which he was captain this year. Much praise has been given him in his clean, fair play, not only by local papers but by those of neigh- boring towns. He favors sports and dancing but rather dislikes making mass meeting speeches. Next fall Russel will attend college. Twenty-four ft WALTER L. LARSON — " A heart to resolve, a head to contrive, and a hand to execute. " " Shorty " , our sponsor, is every inch a sponsor. We think he is about the b st fellow to coach a class like ours that was ever pro- duced. " Shorty " has only been with us during our Junior and Senior years, having taken up the work of Florence Hill who resigned. He carried on her work in great fashion, having helped to put over a fjood many bis events during our last years. He has found J. R. Parrish a helpful worker in pulling- over these parlies " Shorty " came from DeKolb. Illinois, and was a graduate from the Northern Illinois State Normal School. He is teaching industrial work in Central. Oh. yes. we forgot to mention something, you wouldn ' t believe it. either, but — he is married. He was married last Fall to Miss Kthel Seward, who is also a teacher in E. II. S. Here ' s best wishes to you. " Shorty " , and the .Missus Class History CLASS HISTORY— FRESHMAN YEAR ITH the first month of that great and memorable year of Nineteen Hundred Seventen, when our nation was plunged into the deep waters of that great war for justice and peace, some forty-eight shy and innocent pupils, with staunch hearts ready to brave all the terrors of the awe-inspiring life which they were to follow for four long years in addition to the burdens of the outside world, entered the house of wisdom. We all assembled into one large room, many shaking in their boots, and hearts in their mouth, where many other pupils in years gone by had been ushered in in dread and fear. After many directions and much good advice was thrust upon us, only to be forgotten, and we were assigned our honor- able seats and roll numbers, were were dis- missed for the remainder of the day. With sighs of relief, we straightway left the house of wisdom, glad that that first dav was over. Our first business meeting consisted in the election of officers which were: Presi- dent, Harold Piatt ; vice-president, Geral- dine Fisher; treasurer, Marston Nulf: sec- retary, I Juris I lusted, and Social committee chairman, Edgar Shepherd. The remainder of our Freshman year was spent in various ways: some making frequent journeys to his Excellence which seemed to be a source of great amusement for the wiser ones, though we could never see why. Everyone looked forward to the time when we could " grow up " and lay claim to the privileges which for some reason or other were denied ns. E. A., Jan. ' 21. SOPHOMORE YEAR At last came the day when we were members of that much envied class, the Sophomores. Feeling very grown-up, in- deed, on the 31st of January we elected for the second time the officers which were to guide us safely through our unknown fu- ture as Sophomores, Marston Nulf carryiiv off honors for president, with Joe Weaver to work in his absence ; Catherine Staudt to record our doings (and undoings), and Harold Piatt as keeper of our precious money. We also elected a social committee with Irvin Palmer as chairman. This indus- trious committee soon proved its good quali- ties and on Februarv 1st the corridor of the Twenty-five PI $m Central School was made lively by our chatter. About this time our class was honored by a visit from Mr. Wiggers, who urged us to join the Junior Red Cross. After much discussion it was decided that membership be left to the discretion of each member, which resulted in the fact that $11.75 was collected in membership fees for our class. Twice more during that chapter of our high school career our laughter adorned Central ' s corridors, and our feet danced over its smooth floors. Before parting for the summer the members hiked to Yellolw Creek where a weenie roast was the pre- dominent feature. Miss Dwight and Miss Hill proved their ability to " hike " by chap- eroning the crowd. Such an enjoyable time did everybody have at our hike to Yellow Creek, that the " bunch " decided to open our fall social sea- son with a hike to Mosquita Glenn. Weenies and marshmellows were on the program to be roasted, but the marshmellows myste- riously disappeared. The rest of our Sophomore year was as usual except for the fact that our class adopted a French war orphan for one vear, thus having the distinction of being the only class in high school to have adopted one. H. IT, Jan. ' 21. JUNIOR YEAR YVe again assemble this thirteenth day of Nineteen Hundred Nineteen at the home of our class sponsor, Miss Florence Hill. Here the ancient custom of classes, the election of class officers, came again before the class and it came to pass that we elected Irvin Palmer as president, Charles Brown into the office of vice-president, Ethel Ver- nier to be our secretary, Wallace Stover as guard of the treasury and Palmyra Opfer as chairman of the Social committee. And, behold, all the pupils of our great school enjoyed a picnic at McNaughton Pork with a goodly number of our members present. Everybody had worked up an enormous appetite, but as provisions were liberally given, everyone ' s hunger was ap- peased. Our next time of merry-making fell on Hallowe ' en, this time being entertained at the home of Fern Russell where a variety of quaint costumes showed the spirit of the time. A pleasant evening of suitable games, music and dancing were enjoyed, not for- getting to mention the excellent refresh- ments served by the hostess. As the days passed by, we sojourned four different times to the Domestic Science rooms where the food always seemed to taste better. Wonder why? Ask some of the girls who had a hand in it. On one occa- sion, November 29, 1919, after a picnic sup- per had been badly mutilated, we all filed into the gym to witness the basketball game betwen the Alumni and Notre Dame. And toward the end of the year we chose, with much delight, our class pins and rings which unto this day we wear with great love and honor. With several more social gatherings — a decidedly successful party at the home of Harold Piatt and a " movie " benefit — we rounded up our Junior year in the highest of spirits and our minds bent upon hitting the trail harder the next and last year. E. A., Jan. ' 21. SENIOR YEAR In January, 1920, our ambitions were realized when we became the Senior Class of E. H. S. Our roll .•ail was slightly shorter than in 1917. but we still had a goodly num- ber of tried and loyal members. Our spon- sor. Miss Hill, resigned and Walter Larson was elected to take her place. Our social season was successfully opened with a bunco party at Palmyra Opfer ' s home. An election of officers was also held and the following elected: President, Wil- liam Stephens; vice-president. Franklin Ni u; secretary, Esther Mitchell, and treas- urer, Milton Ulery. On April 21st a busi- ness meeting was lield and it was decided to give a play with the IIBs to raise funds. The play, " The Colonel ' s Maid, " was a de- cided success. It was given at the Elks ' Temple and over one hundred dollars was cleared. The leading parts were well por- trayed by Nellie Mollenhour and William Stephens. Other members of our class who shone as actors were Harold Piatt, Eldon McLaughlin, Doris Husted and John Lock- ton. Twenty-six PI W?ff On February 16 Mildred Berger enter- tained us at her home, and when we again demanded a part) ' . Harold Piatt came to the rescue after we had twice been dis- appointed on our meeting place. The picnic supper was a decided success owing to " Fat " Shepherd ' s ability at cutting cakes with soft icing. Mr. and Mrs. Rowe. Mr. Larson and Mr. Arnold chaperoneed the crowd. Our next social splurge was April 9th. in the form of a fool ' s party in the Domestic Science rooms. On April 23rd John Lockton played host to about twenty members at his home, and " Bill " Stephens again entertained us on May 7th. On May loth, the IIB ' s showed their good-fellowship and entertained us at a pic- nic supper. Some day their generosity will be rewarded by a return treat, we pray. Just before the close of school the IA ' s and IIA ' s, aided by the faculty, surprised our deserving; principle. Mr. Kelly, at a picnic supper. Speeches and toasts were made and a musical program was njoyed. The largest social affair of our [ nior year was the annual Senior entertainment. In this we were aided by the IIB ' s. Fully 190 members of the graduating and Junior classes motored to Yawter ' s Park, Lake Wawasee. on May 29th. Swimming and boating occupied the time until 6 o ' clock, when an appetizing three-course dinner was served at Vawter Park Hotel. In September we came back rested and ready for a busv winter. Our newlv elected president, Harold Piatt, entertained us at his cottage, at Eagle Lake during Septem- ber, and on one dark night we picked our way through Bristol ' s complicated streets and landed at Waufred Pickrell ' s home to enjoy a wienie roast. The IIA ' s and IIA ' s have set a precedent for the classes to follow, in the form of an annual Thanksgiving banquet, which we en- joved on November 24, 1920, in the Gym of E. ' H. S. But even Seniors cannot always enjoy life and committees were appointed for an- nouncements, colors, flowers, and motto. The committees chose gold and black with sun-burst roses as our adornment for class- da} - which fell on January 18, 1921. Ethel Vernier, John Lockton, Jess Long- ley, Russell Kistner and Mildred Berger have all tried to make our last term in E. II. S. one to linger pleasantly in our memories by inviting us into their homes. The Class of January 1921 has worked and played its way through E. H. S. and long- will its memory linger in our minds. The Senior class owes much of its suc- cess to Mr. Larson and Mr. Parrish. Al- though Mr. Parrish was not activeely con- nected with the doings of our class he did much to help the class along. Mr. Larson proved to be an ever-ready class sponsor and it is with regret that we have to leave him, lint we know that the next class which chooses him as their leader will find him as good, if not better, than we have pictured him to be. H. H.. Jan. ' 21. Twenty-seven mim L AMK Class Prophecy Chicago, Illinois, Wednesday, Feb. 25, 1928. Dear Miss Richardson: CANNOT tell you how much I enjoyed your company during my short business stay in New York. It was a very happv co- incidence that we should both lie invited to Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Paulson ' s home (formerlv Miss Cicily Yoder) in celebration of Washing- ton ' s birthday. I knew Cicily would get a good husband and am so glad to see her so comfortably situated. I had a delightful time and I hope, for old times sake, our friendship will be renewed. I met a young traveling salesman on my way back, Mr. Richmond by name, who happens to be the hance of Miss Fern Rus- sell, mil- did classmate. He is a very nice young man and I think the marriage will be a happy one. 1 arrived safe and sound in Chicago at 3:45, Thursday, and whom should I meet but John Lockton and Helen Patterson, just going to redecorate the White House. I stopped and chatted with them for a few minutes. John told me they were both get- ting along fine in their work and I really look for the two to be married while at the capitol. I am sorry but I have a few orders to recopy. so will close this short letter with the hope that our correspondence will not end here. Wishing you success in your new occupation. As ever. Sherman I iotel, Chicago, Illinois. William E. Stephens. New York City, March 2, 1928. My dear Mr. Stephens: You can ' t imagine how glad I was to hear from you and especially about so many of our old classmates, but, then, I, too, have become acquainted with the whereabouts of a few of them. Mildred Bittinger was up to spend the week-end with me. We spent most of the time shopping, as " Billie " wanted to buy a few articles for her wedding trousseau. She is not to be married till June second. I am going to Elkhart the last week of May and remain until after the wedding. I have never met her future " hubby " , but " Rullie " sems quite gone on him. She met him four years ago in Goshen, send me to Florida. I will make the Hotel de Gardina as my headquarters. We have a couplte cases to be attended to in Tampa and they say that summer is the best time to work on them, so I expect to stay until November. I was down in the " slum district " yes- terday to do some charity work and whom should J meet but Eldon McLaughlin. He is proprietor of a large hotel in the east end and was looking for a small boy to run errands for the clerk. He is very distin- guished-looking now, with his large goatee. He informed me that our old class presi- dent, Harold Piatt, was stopping at his hotel for a few days. I called on my way back and had quite a talk with him. He is vice- president of a large automobile factorv in Bristol. Indiana. He is going to call before he leaves, for an old-time visit and gossip. I will end now but I am sure we will enjoy these letters as they come and go. Your friend and classmate, Ella Marie. Chicago, Illinois, March 6, 1928. Dear Miss Richardson : I was so pleased to receive your letter and to hear you are getting along so well in your work. I went in to call on Marshall Fields and whom should I find at the busi- ness manager ' s desk but one of our old (Continued on Page 84) Twenty-eight mrn t m AIMK FROM " THE COLONEL ' S MAID.

Wallace Stover ' s hand at drawing we leave to Mr. Rowe to be used in chemistry class when explaining by diagram.

Larson as executor and administrator of this our last will and testment. (Signed) By A. Pickled Burger. FAREWELL! When our High School days have fled. And we part from the friends we ' ve made, Why do we hold them in memory, And why does their image ne ' er fade? With the future ever before us. It would seem that a bygone class, Would be as a light in the mist. And but one of the ships that pass, i But still ' tis a ship whose passing. Engraves deep in our soul, A longing ever sacred, To reach the highest goal. Though other ships shall pass us, And countless the storms we meet The man ' lessons that we ' ve learned. Shall calm the storm wave ' s beat. We cannot turn the wheel of time Backward in its flight. But fond recollections of school davs past. Will keep the future bright. So let us not think of parting, But of making our bond so true. That it may bridge us across the chasm From the old life into the new. accept our farewell, ye sheltering walls. That have housed us four short years, And although we smile in a gay farewell. We turn, our eyes dimmed with tears. Doris A. Husted, Jan. ' 21. Thirty ROBERT HARTER— " The Bacheler " •■Though many have sighed for me, there is only one I love. " President ID and IIA; Treasurer IIC. " Bob " tells us he didn ' t say the above but actions talk loudly. This unassuming character has been a very active member of our class (that is when Grace was away), and has served diligently on manv committees. He is one of these fellows who always makes himself known at parties by his good nature and quick wit. We hope that his future will not be torn and lacerated by the calamitous blight of domestic infelicities, but will consumate in perpetual blessedness with an amateur nurse. MABEL RUSSELL— " Mickey " " My ambition is to " Dolittle " and to " Seamore " . A woman ' s prerogative is to talk, and Mabel, from Dunlaps, if no exception to the rule. She can " Seamore " at morning. " Seamore " at noon, " Seamore " at night than any other E. H. S. student carrying the dignity of a Senior. MICHAEL TEETER— " Shelley " " Be sober and temperate and you will be healthier. " This very quiet and unostentatious youth is another to add " length " to the roll of graduates. Dignified though he may be. his dignity is a minus quantity when there is a class " row " on hand. It is not always the prominent who possess real worth. " Shelley " i 3 a good fellow but never a lady ' s man. JOSEPHINE GILDEA— " Joe " " I can ' t help that I am a runt. " " Joe " lives in a world full of " Joy " and is a happy, care-free Senior. Her laughing eyes and brunette locks have won for h er a place of no little importance. Frivolous and gay though she may be at times. " Joe " can assume a dignity which would grace any Senior. Secretary IIC and IB. Thirty-one DONALD LIPPINCOTT " Though laughter is allowable, a horse-laugh is abominable. " Though seldom heard from in speech, his calibre can be judged by his wise selection of the class flowers and colors. In this he showed rare judgment and the class appreciates his membership in the June class of ' 21. ARLENE SUNDERLIN — " The Basketmaker " " With vollies of eternal babble. " " Sunny " , from Niles, is one of those girls that never get through talking except in a recitation and is as lively as she is talkative. Her blonde hair and blue eyes would make a person think that she was another Swede in the class but she says not. She h as an abund- ance of wit and can use it to good advantage. Her various talents will probably be domesticated and the lucky boy will have all he can do to get a word in edgeways. PETER JOHNSON— " Pete " " He is not made to be the admiration of all, but the happiness of one. Vice-Pres. IB; President IIB; Secretary-Treasurer IA. Procrastination is only one of Pete ' s idiocynciecies. Devotion to one is only one other. His vocal vibrations which burst into song " places him among our actors. Active, energetic, and entertaining at our social functions he was loved by all his classmates (especially the fairer sex). RUTH SASSAMAN— " Sassy " " Be good and you will miss a lot. " " Sassy " , regardless of her fiery temper and ill disposition, plodded her way through four years of strenuous labors. When the class was stalled, Ruth would prognasticate, we all followed and came out on the long end of the teeter. It has b3en said that she is a very good little girl, but it must always be remembered that " there is a little bit of bad in every good little girl. " Nevertheless, the class has appreciated the work of Ruth very much. HARRY POTTER — " The Musician " " Never do today what you can do tomorrow. " Treasurer ID. Harry is the boy with the patent-leather hair. lie says he doesn ' t use " Bandoline " but you can draw your own conclusions. Harry is always present at our parties and is always willing to play " Tired of Me, " whenever coaxed a little, bit. The class wishes Harry and his famous " dance orchestra " the best of success in the musical world and we already look forward to the time when we will hear the famous " Potter ' s Orchestra " on the Victrola. Thirty-two EVELYN ALFORD— Commercial " The Ornament of a Meek and Quiet Spirit. " Evelyn, or " Esby " , although never having- so much to say. was always " right there " to help put things through. She served on the social committee during the Illi term and secretary during our last term. Evelyn was always good in her studies, especially shorthand and typewriting, getting many E ' s. She likes dancing, eats, picture shows and sewing but doesn ' t care a bit about history, noisy sessions or writing- letters. After graduation she intends to become a first- class stenographer. FRANKLIN N E U— Commercial " I entrench myself in my books, equally against sorrow and the weather. Frank, who is known as our bookworm, left us in our Senior year to live in the northern wilds of Wisconsin, lie stayed there about three months and then returned to resume his studies. Frank is all that his motto suggests and may always be found at home with his head in a book. He held the following offices during- his high school career: Vice-president I A, treasurer llA, Social committee. He has always been an active member and we know that lie will be a success in whatever line he follows. MARY LUDWIG— " The Wit " " Wit is an unexpected explosion of thought. " To all unobserving outsiders Mary is just a quiet unobstrusive black-haired damsel; but, then, they have never sen her in the class room or at a party. She is one f these rare individuals that can say something funny and yet not laugh. Mary is a very good student in spite of this drawback (?). Her future ambition is to love and be loved and to play poker. EUGENE WHITNEY— " Ladies ' Choice? " " Fate made him what he is. " Always preambling about the building in a dignified(?) manner, performin g antics for the amusement of the fairer sex. A good student and harmless. NINA RHEES— " Our Orator " " Her fame has never widely spread, But her qualities of heart and head are never, never doubted. " Nina is one of those girls who never misses a good time, espe- cially at class parties. Nina is seldom seen without her " better half " . Mary. Nina has received a gold metal for elocution work and we wish her success and hapiness in whatever course of work she may pursue. H 3 " Thirty-three GLADYS HINKLE— " Sunny ' s Accomplice " " She does, inc ' eed show some sparks that are like wit. " Vice-president IIA " Hink " is one of those girls whom everyone likes. Gladys can play basketball above all things, especially when " Sunny " is her partner. She likes to have a good time and generally has it. How- ever, she is a good girl with her heart in the right place. EDWARD McCAUL— " Well Beloved " " I love the tranquil solitude and such society as is quiet, wise and good. " " Ed " is one of the members of our class that doesn ' t say much but thinks a lot. lie was always present at our parties and could eat as much as any of us. His sunny smile (or maybe grin) was always on his face and he was willing to help out in any scheme to have a good time. Good luck. " Edd " , in whatever you choose to make your life work. NAOMI LAMON " A maiden never bold, Of spirit so still and quiet. " This is one who has just joined us in the last part of our sojourn as Seniors in their edifice of enlightenment. Although not well known among our worthy classmates we know that sh e will win many friends in the near future. DICK WAUGH- " Alfonzo " " Love is the beginning, the middle, and the end of everything. " Dick just joined our class this term and although he did not show up at many class functions we are truly glad to count him among our members. He has a laugh that no one can resist and he can laugh at nothing. His good humor will surely win him success. MARY BALDWIN— " Baldy " " It is tranquil people who accomplished much. " Mary is one of the studious members of our class. Though she is not very often seen at the class parties, yet we all like her very much. Here ' s the best wishes for Mary ' s future. Thirty-four RUTH TROYER— " Our Scholar " ? " Work, Work, where have I heard that name before? " Kindly, friendly and likeable are the adjectives that best describe Ruth. Her home is always open to the class and the home on Second street and the cottage at the lake have been the scene of many gay class parties. Ruth s good nature and sense of humor will always make her well liked, be it in domestic pursuits or in the business world. LUCINDA CREGO— " Cinders " " One with more soul in her face than words on her tongue. " That we do not know more concerning this quiet, unpretentious Senior, is our loss, not hers. Lucinda carries with her an air of timidity and reserve, thus making her intimate acquaintance im- possible for those who do not have the courage to knock down the barriers of such a nature. CARRIE ERWIN— " Bristol Post-graduate " " Not learned in court, nor versed in wit, But loved by those who knew her best. " After finishing three years in Bristol High School, we were very fortunate in receiving Carrie as one of our members. There is only one thing we regret and that is that she did not enjoy the class parties with the rest of us. Here ' s wishing you success, Carrie, and we are all hoping that later on we may receive an invitation to come out and visit " the good old strawberry patch " . GLADYS HAFER— " Hafi " " She nothing common did, nor mean. " Gladys is a quiet sort of a girl, so quiet, in fact, that very few people have discovered her many qualities. We are sorry to lose her, but we know that somewhere out in the world something big is waiting for her. ISABEL BURNS— " Our Scholar " " A mind full of knowledge is a mind that never fails. " President IC Isabel is one of our real students. She usually has the misfortune to receive 4 E ' s each period. She is a very faithful member and has served very diligently on the social committee a number of times. The man who gets her will certainly be a lucky boy as her list of accomplishments number more than one. The class heartily wishes her success. Thirty-five ETHEL HARTMAN— " Our School Marrn " " The greatest pleasure of life is love. " Lately we have noticed that Ethel believes in taking advantage of the " jass music ' at our class parties especially. At other times she amuses herself with some of the girls in innocent (?) little games. She intends to be a teacher for a few years and then — we will trust to luck and let the future take care of her. IRA HEIDER— " Our Player " " You see him deep in every fray, In swift pursuit of the flying ball: He is ' t ' here " every time — He can show them all. " Ira is not seen at the class parties very often, but that is not a sign that he is not a true sport. He can play basketball and was on the first team for our school in his Senior year. Here ' s to Ira ' s future. HELEN YERKES— " Yerkees " " Coolness and absence of heat and haste indicate fine qualities. " Although Helen has not been an active member of our class, we are sure that she is very much liked by all her classmates. She is rather quiet when among those who have not made her acquain- ance, but we feel this is only an assumed dignity and may be easily cast aside when the occasion demands. THEODORE JO H NSON— " Noisemaker " " The flower of meekness on a stem of grace. " " Saxaphone Teddy " is the quiet and sedate (?) member of our class in the Sophomore session. This rosy-cheeked, auburn-haired, " Swedish vagabond " was almost always at our parties and could be depended upon when many of our lesser members failed to put in an appearance. The class joins in wishing him success. HILDA MYERS— " The Actress " " The world may dig in the dark, says she, But the beam of the footlights beckon me. I ' ll do the Juliet balcony scene, And wear silk gowns of brilliant sheen. " Hilda is the actress of the class. She can play anything from little Eva crossing the ice to Juliet in the balcony love scene. Hilda is an ardent worker; she has helped make many a party the success it was. The class joins in wishing her success in love or war. Thirty-six ORLEY WILSON— " Hushed " " Truth is the foundation of all knowledge and the cement of ail societies. " Orley came to us from Wakarusa High School at the beginning of our .Junior year. And although we haven ' t heard from him much we know that he gets good grades and is a credit to our class. We wish you luck, Orley. GEORGIAN BAY — " Not frequently heard from. " " Ought to be a lake. " Tis rumored that she smiles occasionally in the secrecy of her own apartments and to her boon companions. When the smile comes, look out, for it is one of those broad smiles you read about. Georgian has been connected with our E. H. S. orchestra and the musical squeaks are a great asset to that organization. It was heard that she might play for Caruso next season!?). LEROY HOSTETLER — " The Bookworm " " The man that blushes is not quite a brute. " Leroy. brighter than he will admit, but never a grind, considers it a disgrace to get a " G " . He is the possessor of a goodly mixture of dignity, humor, jollity and good nature. He adores mathematics and takes ' every course offered in it. He will surely be a success in what- ever he undertakes and the class takes pride in his scholarship. HERMIONE BRUNK— " Hermfli " " What sweet delight a auiet life affords. " One of whom we are proud. During her sojourn in high school she has proved herself a scholar. Her sterling qualities have given her a place which it will, indeed, be hard to till. We kno w that she can naught else but succeed in whatever she undertakes. CARL BIGLER Carl was originally a member of the June ' 20 class but is receiving his diploma with January ' 21. Though he was always a silent member of the class he was well liked by all who knew him. In his work he has always seemed inclined to favor industrial subjects. May the hest success rest with Carl in his future work, is the wish of the class members. . Thirty-seven MARY ELIZABETH GUYER— " Lizzie " " I can ' t; I must get my Latin. " Mary is a good-natured girl, with a smile for every day in the week; we, indeed, envy her for her sunny disposition. We don ' t know that she has ever held any ill feeling toward a person, but instead always has a good word for all. ERNEST THORNTON— " Ernie " " I only sing because I must. " A member, who can take a joke and give one in the same manner. Although his quietness hardly makes him known to all members, his good-fellowship will always fasten him in our memories. The class wishes you success and happiness, " Ernie " , and may your walks from Simonton Lake be less frequent after our school days. NINA REYNOLDS— " The Governess " " True modesty is a discerning grace. " Xina is one of the quiet members of our class. Although she doesn ' t talk much she is always present at all class affairs. It is rumored, however, that she isn ' t as quiet as she seems, for they tell us {girls, of course), that her mouth is going all the time when she is with her intimate friends. Nina is a girl that is hard to get acquainted with but when friendship is once established is will last f0reVer ' 7K£LsU J 7?CUj %z f T ZAM-j j JrW ILfo DELBERT DAUSM AN— " Del " " Don ' t tread on me. " Quiet and uncommunicative, but we ' ve learned the he ' s always " there " when needed. Delbert has always been with our class and has shown his worth all along. We hope that his destiny in future years will be the best of successes. ISABELLE OGILVIE- ' Izzy ' ' This happy maiden is endowed with all the jollities and genuine good will that anyone could ask. She has been known to participate in midnight parties, even though her father is a minister. Her happi- ness is forever bubbling forth in snatches of joyous, jubilant songs. Thirty-eight HELEN SCHWARTZ — " A Heart- breaker " " I fame is only to come after death, I am in no hurry for it. " Helen is one of the later members of our class making the re- quired credits in three vears and a half. She is always laughing r.nd is usually seen with Flossie. Her black hair and dark eyes cause many admiring looks from the opposite sex. She is diligent and studious and her future as private secretary to some millionare is quite certain. ROSS KAUFFMAN — " The Historian " " It is not good that man should be alone. " Secretary and Treasurer IIB. " Coffee " is one of the oldest members of our class and a very faithful one. He is always seen at our class parties and feeds, and his smiling face and pretty hair(?) is very much in evidence. He is a good student but doesn ' t believe in studying more than is necessary. He intends to become an architectural engineer and we wish him success. ZONA VANGUNDY — " Chlng " " The desire of leisure is more natural than of business and care. " When the class wanted anything done and didn ' t know how to go about it they appointed Zona to look after it and it always went through. This is just one of her admirable traits and the others are too numerous to mention. All a person has to do is to look at " our Zonv " and they will know why the class likes her so well. Her fidelity, and her unfailing devotion to her friends will surely win her a place in every one ' s heart who has the good fortune to know her and we envy the man she gets. ARTHUR KISTNER— " Art " " To be active Is the primary vocation of man. " President IIA; Secretary and Treasurer. Here we have an active, energetic man. small but mighty. He seems to have the peculiar power of making others see things just as he does. He has had a varied experience with Cupid, but will doubt- less come out victor, as he has the faculty of winning feminine hearts at any peril. MARION TUTHILL— " Tutty " " Inc ' eed, she has her opinion on all things And none can change it. " Serene will be her days and bright And happy will her nature be When love is an unerring light. And speech its own security. Thirty-nine FRANK CLEVELAND— " Dizzy " " If words were worth one billionth of a cent each, this man would be a millionaire. " Frank seldom finds in more than one a friend whose physiological temperaments are commensurate with his own keenly cultured human intellect. In communing- with this fair one he chooses not the pen (as do many E. H. S. students) but rather chooses to commune with her in such a way that the vibration from his vocal cavity will pene- trate the sensitive membrane of her auditory apparatus and thus prevent the demuring of her charming " organs of perception by scan- ning the pages of an endearing hand. DELIGHT McGEATH — " Little but naughty " " Silence is sometimes the severest criticism. " " Dee " is one of the late members of our class, coming to E. H. S. from Crawfordsville at the beginning of the Senior year. However, it didn ' t take her long to get acquainted and she has been very much in evidence since she came. The school will lose a good faithful member when she leaves and the class will be sorry, indeed, to part from her. GERALD SWINEHART— " The Wind Jammer " " The more men talk, the more likely they are to do nothing else. " President IB: Editor-in-chief of Pennant I and HA. This is the philosophical, psychological, metaphysical, monstrosity of the class of ' 21. His supply of words is limitless, boundless, and inexhaustible. On all occasions he can furnish hot air which many times is given away without the asking. His attentions are lavished on girls in general and none in particular. The only student of biology who ever learned that the antogony of the individual epiti- mises the phylogony of the race. FRANCIS HOUSEWORTH— " Fran " " The tongue is mightier than the sword. " " Be it ever so humble, there is no car like Shorty ' s. " This quota- tion would -be more appropriate because she is always seen with her friend, Shorty. " Fran " comes to us from the January class of ' 21 but she has been fairly active in class affairs and finds time to attend our parties occasionally. She is a typical emblem of a woman because she never really stops talking except to get her breath. " We have heard say that she wished she was born rich instead of handsome, but be that as it may, we are glad to number her among ' the members of our class. ELWOOD BRANNAN— " Fat " " Fullness is always quiet, agitation will answer for empty vessels only. " " Fat " has been with our class ever since we entered high school and proably then some. His sunny countenance is always seen at class meetings and parties and he has always taken a part in the activities of our class. He never was adverse to staying out a little longer than the rest and causing the sponsors grave concern. AVe wouldn ' t want anyone to know this, so keep it dark. His freckled face is sure to win him success. Forty PI JS£ UAL JAMES R. PARRISH — " Our Helpmate " " What ' er he does, or thinks, or dreams, Our class seizes for its theme. " Mr. J. R. Parrish was born in Ohio, near Bowling Green, in a year known only to himself. He graduated from Otterbein college in 1915 with an A. B. degree but, thinking he was not yet ready for a position in E. H. S.. which, of course, was his one ambition, he took post-graduate work in the Ohio State university. He then taught Chemistry in Auburn for one year. Ever since he has been giving the students in E. H. S. the benefit of his years of concentrated study! ?). In the fall of 1919 he was captured by the June class of ' -1 and he has been very faithful to them until another and even greater person captured his affections. He was married in August 1921 to Miss Edna Schacht. His never-failing humor and his good advice has contributed greatly to make our class the success it has been and to him we give the credit of our achievements. Class History Narrative in Four Installments. The Comedy of Presented Errors. Chapter I. HEX we as Seniors delve into the innermost recesses of our recollection, we recall that eventful day of September, 1917. when a miniature regi- ment (I won ' t say soldiers, as we were far too timid to be classed as such) of comparatively young children made its way through the majestic portal into the house of knowledge. However, this class, lest it should fall into error, met in the Freshman session on September 28 and drew up a constitution under the guardianship of Miss Cory. One week later we adopted this consti- tution and elected our first set of officers, consisting of Harter. Van Gundy and Tot- ter. Our primary social function was in form of a Hallowe ' en party at Central hall, and just as evidence of how we loathed falling by the wayside of error, we invited the I ID ' s to participate in our partv. This was a sort of " Get acquainted " affair, the first and only one of the semester. Chapter II. At last we had ripened a little, we were now HD ' s. There were others who were " greener " and would have to endure the desecration of their own names together with that of the Irish here. Even the faculty seemed to realize our progressive state, for Air. Wiggers favored us with a talk at our initial meeting. Then, on February 2$, at another meet- ing (still in the Freshman session), the class chose Miss Cory as its advisir and elected Panghorn, Lake and Fiel as its staff. The year of 1917 was an eventful year in wardom, so to be appropriate and with a view to averting error we consolidated with the I ID ' s in a camouflage party on April 12. Almost everyone appeared camouflaged and had a very enjoyable time. Much Ado About Nothing Chapter I. Oh ! with what an important air did this illustrious class assemble in the Sophomore session the following September. Alas! we were now upper-classmen, eligible to ridi- cule, rather than be ridiculed. This year Isabel Burns became our arch leader and Peter Johnson her confederate. Forty-one mim mm jMK Now, in truth, we had to have a social com- mittee, so imperative were our social de- mands. So Arlene Sunderlin was made chairman with Swinehart and Potter to assist in the good work. Marion Tuthill started the ball a ' rolling by ottering her home for a party. We played games, did everything, even danced. There is no question about it, this class was very business-like, for we arranged to pay does starting with our Sophomore year. Of course, they were a 1 w a y s paid in ad- vance ( ? ). Chapter II. About the first important act committed during the second term was the customary election of officers. Arthur Kiel was made president with Josephine Gildea, secretary, and Rob Harter, treasurer. The class, by this time, was read} - for some real sport. Consequently several parties were planned. The first was quite an elaborate affair, held at Central hall, more attention was paid to " eats " than to anything else. We had a prolific picnic supper after which a program and general good time were enjoyed. Then, when the May flowers appeared there was a wonderful party at Ronald Jacobson ' s home in the country. By this time, you see, we were emerging into the limelight. As You Like It. Chapter I. The third year of our career may be characterized by the spirit of non-chalance. which was prevalent among the members. YYe h- ' d become docile, demure and dove- like. Not in the least keen for instituting reforms, not in the least prone to argu- ment, " not inclined to be ruffled by mere school affairs, we were a source of unde- niable joy to our instructors. We simply followed the proceedure set down by con- vention and chose Swinehart, Gildea and Kistner to guide us through our " easy- going " path. We were also confronted with the pleasant task of selecting a sponsor. We made the wise choice of Mr. Parrish who remained a diligent advisor through our remaining school years. Chapters II. The second half of our Junior year may, perhaps, be catalogued as the most event- ful, for it was during this period that we had our first dramatic experience. The " Colonel ' s Maid " was presented at the Elks ' Temple and proved an unprecedented suc- cess. By the way, several of the cast have expressed an earnest desire to go on the stage. Then, of course, there was the Senior entertainment, which had to be a super- eminent affair. Consequently these grandilo- quent personages were safely conveyed to Lake Wawasee, where we think, and sin- cerely hope, they had a wonderful time. And it is a pretty well established fact that their dignity and reserve passed into " mere oblivion " at least for that day. All ' s Well that Ends Well. Chapter I. After all. our ultimate aim was to end our school regime well. We were, by this time, more desirous of getting through E. H. S. than getting E. H. S. through us (as formerly accomplished). In November of this famous year the IA and IIA classes held a very sumptuous banquet. This was a never-to-be-forgotten event, and in all probability will always continue to be a source of pride to the participant classes. Chapter II. Again it was found imperative to have some class officers, because you all have some conception of the various activities relative to a graduating class. Now, this was not our fault, not the fault of the illus- trious class of June ' 21. But Mother Con- vention who handed all these traditions down to us from centuries ?go, is the cul- prit. So Robert Harter was chosen presi- dent. (Note that " Bob " was our first and last president. This is good practice for " Bob " might be president of U. S. some day, who knows.) Gladys Hinkle, vice-president, and Arthur Kistner, secretary. The various executives would remind one of so many (Continued on Page 46) Forty-two VmM X -C JMK Class Prophecy ACT I— SCENE I A hollow.

Thank ye, jes th ' same (Curtain) Class Will E IT KNOWN, that we, the Senior Class of 1921, of the Elkhart High School, being of sound mind and good judg- ment, are about to leave this habitat of knowledge, and, real- zing that the days of our glory are num- bered, we do hereby execute, declare, and ordain this to be our last will and testa- ment. First of all we leave to the school the memory of a class which strove always to keep the light of its good behavior bright and shining. We also pass on to the other classes the favorable prospects for an audi- torium trusting that they may cherish them as we have. The sole request of our class president, Robert Harter, is that his nymphean grace at clog-dancing be left to Ruth Thornton. To Ford Rogers Isabelle Ogilvie be- queathes three of her golden ringlets, for the loss of which we offer the consolation that there is seill a supply of forty-odd re- maining. To Warren Santon, Gerald Swinehart his ability at side-tracking a recitation. We hope that Warren will succeed in the art as well as Gerald has. Ross Kauffman leaves his susceptibility to yellow-haired girls as an honorary for Heriot Andrew. Arthur Kistner will his sunshiny nature and radiant smile to Mr. Shoemaker for use on Mondays only. Our class orator, Nina Rheese leaves her ease at taking the platform (figuratively speaking) to bashful) ?) John Mahn. Gladys Hinkle wills her love of sports (the right kind), to David Simonton in the hope that the recreation may serve as a pleasing dessert for the French course. Harry Potter leaves his aptitude at " tickling the ivories " to Catherine Basset. Frank Cleveland has consented that his fiery eloquence be given over to De Lotia La LeFevre on provision that she exercises its energetic force in an economical manner. As a complimnt to the violinists in the orchestra next year, Georgian Bay leaves her talent at wielding the " fiddle-stick " . Irabel Burns, however, has decided to take her accomplishments along, but as a substi- tute for these, and as a means of adding to the assortment of curios and wild beasts found in our class sponsor ' s department, she has left three " rare " notes (properly censored) for the convenience of prsons less versed in writing them. As these models are exceptionally original, a small royalty would be acceptable. For an enlightenment in behalf of Clif- ford Weldy, Maiw Ludwig has offered her scope of familiarity with Noah Webster. Mr. Weldy, meet Mr. Webster. Hermione Brunk ' s enthusiasm and abil- ity as a debater is to be entrusted to Dan Thomas. Frances Houseworth requests that her seriousness and demure may be left to Ethel Miller. Forty-five mms s L ASMK Ethel Hartman desires us to impart the information that the new song hit, " Vamp until you vamp your cares away, " may be secured on cash terms at any of Elkhart ' s music stores. Le Roy Hostettler has been kind enough to leave his report card in the teacher ' s reception room so anyone desiring to re- pose in ease (E ' s) may go there. Mabel Russel desires that Jane Meale shall inherit her famous " Laugh and grow Lean " motto. JUNE, 1 92 1 Ye gates of learning, open wide. Another class leaves thy walls. Graduates fair are standing there To answer when duty calls ! Here is a class of which you are proud. A class that was never morose. The class that was gayest and best in a crowd. Its history to you I ' ll disclose. As Freshmen they entered your sacred walls, And all found them wondrous wise. Their presence was noted throughout all the halls. Their teachers were greatly surprised. And so they advanced and Sophomores be- came, Strong athletes as victors were praised. Each helping to bring his class lasting fame. Always hoping its standard to raise. With stately manner and owl-like mien As Juniors they paced the walks. Or sauntered out across the green Engaged in learned talks. Finally they as Seniors appear, Whose school days are almost ended They were the leaders throughout every year Their success was always portended. They are proud of their rank as staid Seniors And know it has always been worth while ; Their troubles and slight misdemeanors. They look back on now with a smile. Here ' s to the class of June ' 21 The class that we all hold so dear; To its girls who were fairest. Its fellows the squarest. Let ' s send up a rousing good cheer. So here ' s a toast to E. H. S. ' 21, The class that is all in all. The classiest class that ever was seen Inside of a high school wall. Delight McGeath, June ' 21. CLASS HISTORY (Continued from Page 42) bumble-bees buzzing around their " honey " , which was in form of announcements, class motto, play and flowers and innumerable other achievements. Finally, after much discussion the American Beauty Rose was chosen, and our old E. H. S. colors. Blue and White ; while we had the appropriate motto: " Launched but whither bound. " Our parting from E. H. S. was perhaps the most lugubrious that we ever wished to experience. The reminiscences in which abundant pay is mingled with an occasional sorrow, the recollection of ludicrous esca- pades and carefree good times, made us happy to have been so favored by fortune as to have been numbered among the worthy attendants of Elkhart HisFi School.

Not that we fear it will be refused a kindly reception from the student body, for such an attitude has already been disproven, but because we are doubtful as to our ability in fulfilling the honor and privilege which has been given to our class — that of publishing Elkhart High School ' s first Annual. In issuing this Annual it has been our honest ambition to present a book worthy of the class and of the school. We have not hoped to produce a gem of literature. far be it from such, but we have endeav- ored to give a complete and accurate review of the activities and events of the school year, bringing out the merits of our school. Our main desire has been to portrav the many-sided life of the school which has been our home for these four vears. We have experienced no difficulty in finding ma- terial : the accomplishments of our athletes, our debators and the general spirit of the student body have given us a sufficient sup- ply for a larger volume, but since this is our first attempt, our efforts and accomplish- ments must be confined accordingly. We are indebted to the splendid, co- operative spirit of the students, to those teachers who advised and encouraged, and to all whose ready response has made this a possibility. To Mr. Ross we owe much. His clear business judgment and untiring patience with our inexperience have made our An- nual a realization. We trust that we have not offended too much by our sins of " omission and com- mission " and that the reader, in passing his judgment, may remember that this is our first attempt. And so we. the staff, present this initial attempt as a reminder of the happy days the Class of 1921 spent together, cherishing the hope that our undertaking may be suc- ceeded by bigger and better Annuals in the vears to come.

So, it was decided to make it the work of a joint staff, composed of those who were serv- ing on the staff of the weekly of both semesters. Delight McGeath was chosen the second semester, to take charge of the material and to prepare it for publication. Dan Thomas and his assistants managed most of the advertising end of the book. The contributions of many artists were received and their names will be found on their drawings. The co-operation of the classes was of great value and the staff stanks most heartily all who helped in any way. AN APPRECIATION With the knowledge that the business men of Elkhart as individuals and, as organized trades- men, were ever ready to lend a helping hand to the Pennant and the Annual in their struggle to overcome financial difficulties, and with the con- viction that these same men are in a large meas- ure responsible for this, Elkhart High School ' s first year-book or Annual, we submit this article in the hope that it may serve to express a meagre portion of our great appreciation of their generous efforts. A glance through the Pennant files, not only of the nineteen-twenty-one issues, but also for the ( Continued on Page 88 ) Fifty-nine mrn z jjwK DEBATE K The Affirmative Debate Team this year was composed of Eldon McLaughlin, Her- mione Brunk and Irvin Palmer. They lost to both Mishawaka and Warsaw on a 2 to 1 decision. The negative team, composed of Richard Bechtel, Helen Yeager and Warren Stanton, were more fortunate. They won a unanimous decision over Mishawaka but lost to Warsaw. At the close of the debates the Forum or Debate club was formed, and fifteen more members were selected by try- outs for the club. With this organization, it is hoped that next year may bring much success to Elkhart High School. Sixty Sixty-one Football THE 1920 FOOTBALL SEASON The 1920 football season is now high school history. As we look merely at the scores of the games, we must admit that it was not a season of victory. But we are inclined to believe that victory should not- be gauged by the scores of the games. The entire season was a huge victory for Elk- hart High School. The team started the season in mediocre fashion, but through the medium of mass meetings and the Pennant the student body was awakened to the fact that the}- could be very insrumental in making a winning team for the high school. Therefore, they concentrated their for- ces, and never before in the history of E. H. S. sports did so many people crowd the side-lines during the games. There was unified yelling, both by the girls and the boys. There were parades, yelling, horn- blowing, and drum-beating as never before. And all this culminated in our wonderful victory over Froebal High of Gar} ' . That game and the snake dance of victory will never be forgotten by those loyal to " Blue and White " . The team did not win the championship, and it can not return to redeem lost laurels. But the splendid fighting spirit of E. H. S. rooters will be more in evidence next year and will bring greater victory to our school. The team has practiced hard this spring, and will put in two strenuous weeks at the football camp next fall. When the whistle blows on the opening game of the 1921 sea- son, E. H. S. will start the race for the Northern Indiana Championship.

The team made a good showing in every game but only in five games were we ahead when the final whistle blew. The seconds played man} ' scrappy contests and their experience together with that of the five men of the first team who will remain in school should give us a five next year which will give us a high place in Indiana basketball circles.

THE TRACK SEASON hen the Annual goes to press, the sea- son on the cinders and on the held is just beginning. The dual meet with Xiles was a splendid opening victory, for our total was 58 to their 38 points. So. we have every reason to believe that the season will be a good one. The local talent first tried out April the 5th when the annual inter- class meet was held. The Seniors managed to secure a four-point lead over the Sopho- mores and won, the Juniors and Freshmen trailing along far behind. In the Niles meet the high-point winners for Elkhart were Brown and Stametz, both scoring nine points. Our entrants in the different events will probably be : 50- Yd Dash — H.

S. this year has been one continual round of enjoyable class parties, dances, and picnic suppers. Early in the first semester social commit- tees were chosen and from the social activi- ties which followed one would decide that they certainly served their purpose well. One of the most elaborate functions of the year was the introduction of a Senior dinner, given by both the Januar-- and June classes. This was held in the Gym on No- vember 23 and was indeed a great success. Again the June class journeyed to the home of Arlene Sunderline in Niles, where it held another ne ' er-to-be-forgotten gathering. It was decided the second semester by the June class to have parties bi-monthly, and many frolics were enjoyed. The Januar}- 1922 class held a successful Valentine party at the home of John Stalli- on February 16. Music, games and dancing formed the chief diversions. The chaper- ones were Miss Boice. Mr. Barnum, Mr. Griffin and the sponsor. Miss Burns. Another enjoyable party was that given by the June 1922 class. March 18, at the home of Walter Beardsley. Games and con- tests concerning St. Patricks day were en- joyed, ft was discovered that Mr. J. H. Griffin was an accomplished musician hav- ing manipulated the electric piano with un- usual dexteritv. IB The long-suit of the Jan. ' 23 class was picnic suppers. Perhaps one of the most enjoyable of these was held on March 29. in the Domestic Science rooms. Games and music were enjoyed by all. The chaperons were the Messrs. Ross and Morris and the Misses Frances Stanton and Bernita Burns. IIC Tuesday, September 28, the present IIC class, fifty strong, was entertained by John Collins at his home on Beardsley avenue. Music and games formed the main diver- sions of the evening. Again the class jour- neyed to Eagle lake for an outing at the Gampher cottage. Games and contests were enjoyed around a huge bon-fire and the crowd departed amidst rousing cheers for the Gamphers. The IC class, with guests, enjoyed a pic- nic supper on Thursday, February 24, in the Domestic Science rooms. After a most bountiful supper, games, planned by the so- cial committee, were played with much in- terest and excitement. The evening ' s fun was concluded with dancing and music. Not to be outdone by their elders along social lines the youngest of the clan enjoyed a picnic supper on Thursday, March 4, in the Domestic Science rooms. Indeed it was quite a feed, verging on a banquet, and the IID ' s proved that they would keep the ball rolling. In addition to these various class parties were the football and basketball banquets. The former was given Tuesday evening. November 30, with thirty-two members of the squad and several men of the faculty attending. After the banquet a short pro- gram of toasts and speeches was enjoyed. Then ensued the election of George Lutz for 1921 Captain. The party ended amidst cheers and congratulations for the new leader of the Blue and White gridiron war- riors) The Annual Basketball banquet was held Thursday, March 10th. The entire squad and several guests enjoyed to the fullest extent the three-course dinner, prepared by girls of the Domestic Science department. In order that everyone might enjoy himself thoroughly it was announced that toasts would be dispensed with. After the dinner the banqueters journeyed to the Bucklen as guests of the Athletic Association. Also our honorable pedagogues were caught in the social wave and as a result they staged two memorable functions. The first was given shortly before the holidays and was in the nature of a kid party. It is rumored that some of our great examples threw their dignity to the seven winds on that evening. Santa Claus was there with a gift for each of the " little ones " and a short playlet was presented. The second faculty " get-together " was a ( Continued on Page 70 ) Sixty-eight Sixty-nine mm n mzxz ANWL E. H. S. ART CLUB The Art Club of Elkhart High School, the first of its kind in this city, was organ- ized on September 23, 1920, and consisted of the pupils and teachers of the Art classes. It was started for the purpose of arousing a greater interest, and for expanding the knowledge of Art of all kinds. The club has enjoyed a few talks by different men. con- sisting of Mr. Flanders who talked about diamonds ; David Mohammed, who told them of rugs, and Mr. Turnock, who talked about architecture. An exhibition of the painting of Indiana painters, from Young ' s studio was also enjoyed by the members of the club. The officers for the first semester were: Phyllis Templin, chairman ; Wallace Stover, assistant chairman; Kathryn McNom, sec- retary and treasurer. ' I he officers tor the second semester were: Wallace Stover, chairman: Phyllis Templin, assistant chairman ; Geraldine Long, secretarv and treasurer. THE FORUM The Forum is the high school ' s newest club. It is an organization designed to sponsor debate, oratory and public discus- sion. Twenty-five members were elected following a tryout of more than fifty candi- dates. Six new members were chosen from each of the four class es and one member at large. This is the maximum membership. The members are required to keep an av- erage of M in three subjects and each mem- ber must try out each year for a place on one of our debate teams or for school repre- sentative in public speaking. Irvin Palmer is president ; Richard Bech- tel is vice-president, and Helen Yeager, sec- retarv. SOCIETY Continued from Page 70 formal St. Patrick ' s dinner, given in the Domestic Science rooms. After an elabor- ate four-course dinner, a program of toasts and music was given. Besides the man}- class parties and social affairs enjoyed by the different organiza- tions, the student body as a whole got to- gether several times during the year. Class distinction was forgotten and the chief aim was to make everyone ' s neighbor have a good time. The most successful of these was the Mardi Gras, given October 28 in the Gym. This measured beyond all expecta- tions, and the motley crowd of unknown and strangely attired friends promenaded through the Gym to the tuneful strains of Potter ' s orchestra. Sailors, ghosts, pious nuns and clowns mingled together in the gay festivities of the evening and everv one went home with the happiest remembrance of the first general school partv. The one form of social activity which seemed to be ever popular was the Jitney dance. At these some of our artists of Terpsichore performed for the onlookers. These were usually benefit dances and the proceeds were used to enrich the class treasury or for some worthy purpose. Pot- ter ' s orchestra seemed to have a monopoly and many were the nickels spent by the fun-loving " E. H. S.er " as he tripped the light fantastic to its popular melodies. In summing up the social affairs of vari- ous natures this year we feel that each one has been a great influence in unifying the student body and promoting class enthusi- asm. We are strong advocators of frequent class parties and student gatherings, " tot- all work and no plav makes Jack a dull boy. " Seventy fi Music Department MUSIC DEPARTMENT ORGANIZATION OF MUSIC CLUB he Music Department of the high school has made wonderful progress during this last year and we are hoping for even better things in the near future, when we have an auditorium of which we, as well as all the other departments of the high school are in need. We now have a high school orchestra of 24 pieces, a high school band of 35 pieces and a Junior high school orchestra of 35 pieces. The new Vocational Music Course which was established in Elkhart High School this year, now has 25 students enrolled. Classes in Harmony and History of Music have been organized and are proving to be of great interest to the students. ( n November 10th the Music Club was organized at the home of the club sponsor. R. C. Sloane. The club was organized for the purpose of creating more interest in the better class of music. In December the Elkhart Club joined the National Federation of Music Clubs. The Operetta, ' " Miss Cherry Blossom " , was presented under the auspices of the Music Club, and they also promoted the idea of the Community Christmas Tree. In March the club brought the Oberlin Ladies ' Glee Club to Elkhart for a concert. The officers for the year are: President — Virginia Jarvis. Sec.-Treas. — Frances House worth. Sponsor — R. C. Sloane. The Executive committee is composed of Phyllis Terhplin, Palmyra Opfer, Isabel Burns, Frances Houseworth and Virginia Jarvis. Seventy-one PI •s?ro " Miss Cherry Blossom " was presented at the Bucklen Theatre on March 7, by the junior Music Study Club. The play was coached by Miss Mabel A. Talmadge of Community Service, Miss Liberty Roessler, and R. C. Sloane. Four hundred and fifty dollars were cleared on the production. The cast is : Kokemo (Cherry Blossom ' s foster-father, Charles Barger Miss Cherry Blossom Cherry Blossom Virginia Jarvis Togo (a rich politician) Peter Johnson John Henry Smith (in love with Cherry), Reginald Paige Jessica Vanderpool Marjorie Harold Harry Foster Jones (in love with Jessica) Ralph Dunmire James Young ( YYorthington ' s secretary) Dana Paige Horace Worthington (an American stock holder) .Fo rd Rogers Seventy-two »W fi DRAMATICS FROM " NEIGHBORS " THE LITTLE THEATRE One of the most interesting places in the High School to visit is the Little Theater in Room 105 in the basement of the building. Here you will be surprised to, find a theater in miniature. The stage was designed by Mr. Shoemaker and he is also responsible for the artistic stage settings and proper- ties. The picture shows the stage with one of these settings. It would be too tedious to describe in detail the various properties and equipment, but nothing is lacking which is essential fur the presentation of one-act plays. Last Fall a dramatics class was started and it has been conducted throughout the year. Besides studying the Little Theater movement, the class did practical work, and on January 12th the plays " Three Pills in a Bottle " and " Dolly Reforming Herself " were presented. Soon after " The Twelve- Pound Look " and " How the Vote Was Won " delighted the theatre patrons. It was decided the second semester to give matinee plays as well as evening per- formances, and the first of these were pre- sented on April 12th and loth. " Neighbors " by Zona Gale and " Suppressed Desires " by Cook were a decided success. They were given a few evenings later for a good sized audience, and recentlv before the women ' s Seventy-three PI " ra clubs of the city. In May " Oui Aunt from California " and " Popping the Question " were given with equal success. This series of productions give the caliber of plays that it is thought to be worth while. They are given in the best Little Theaters in the country. This group included a farce, a fantacy and comedies. Other types of plays will be presented from time to time. Other dramatic activity must also be noted. On April 18th the French classes presented " Barbe Bleue " and " Pauvre Syl- vie " . Both were greeted by an enthusiastic audience. The IA class presented " Jane " at the Elks ' Temple on April 29th and scored a signal success. The play was coached by Airs. Burns and Miss Burns, and the caste included Paul LeFevre, Curtis McCartney, Richard Miles, John Starr. Charles Barger, Phyllis Malm, Louise Decker, Edna Hall, and Marguerite Bridge. The Senior play yet remains to be given. That is to be " The Importance of Being Earnest. " The caste selected is as follows: Algernon Robert Harter Jack Peter Johnson Gwendolyn Emma Schlosser Lane Harry Potter Merriman Edward McGaul Lady Bracknell Mildred Berger Cicily Mildred Bittinger Miss Prism Hilda Myers Rev.

ALU MI From the Old Grads to the New Grads. Well, here we are with a page or two all to ourselves right in the first Animal of E. H. S. But why shouldn ' t we be? You youngsters who receive vour diplo- mas from Elkhart High School in |une, 1921, may think that graduates means you, and you alone. But we oldsters know 1 let- ter. We know that it includes us, too. We, too, are graduates of E. H. S., even though the classes of some of us antedate yours by man} - years. Some of us you know not at all. Some of us you know by sight or by name, for we are still " going about our dailv tasks in this same good old city of Elkhart. Some of us you know well, for we are teachers, or mothers, or fathers, ar perhaps even grandfathers or grandmothers, for E. H. S. has been turning out its annual crop for many years now. But not all of us are old. Some of us are merely older brothers, or sisters, or friends. But it grieves us not at all that our names may he unknown to many of you. They are all in the card catalog, if you care to learn them. But what ' s in a name? The memory of E. H. S. remains with us even if memory of us does not remain with the student bodv. And many of our memories are happy memories, for we know that, in spite of what we in our " green and salad days " deemed drudgery and hard labor, to which we were driven by those dreadful taskmas- ters, called teachers, we had many enjoy- able hours in E. II. S. To you it is an hypo- critical platitude that " your school days are your happiest days. " but to us it is a truth. And while we have forgotten some of the text-book lessons we learned here, there were other lessons we do not forget. And we know the true meaning of " Commencement " . Some of you consider it the end and regard your graduation as a release but we know that it is onlv the commencement of the reallv serious busi- ness of living. But young or old. known or unknown, illustrious or humble, we are all graduates of E. H. S. and our interest in the old school is still keen. We helped to build up E II. S. spirit, you have helped to keep it alive and we welcome you most cordially into our ranks and hope that each and all of you will do more than we have done, that you may win name and fame and do service for E. H. S. and the world which will make it thankful that our school has existed for you boys and girls are the men and women of the great tomorrow, in you do we trust.

Seventy-six JUNIOR HIGH :v:v: w Wwv ... , : : v.. .: ROOSEVELT JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL The Roosevelt School building was formally dedicated on Friday afternoon, January 28, 1921. Throngs ot people inspected the new structure and several hundred assembled to hear the splen- did dedicatory exercise arranged by the school officials. The principal address was delivered by Mr. Frank G. Pickell, assistant superintendent of the Cleveland Junior high schools. Brief, appro- priate remarks were given by the contractor, architect and several prominent citizens. The evening program was arranged by the Roosevelt Club as a memorial to America ' s re- verred statesman. The feature of the program was an address given by former Congressman Fred Landis of Logansport. Mr. Landis. being an intimate of Roosevelt, touched upon many inci- dents of the famous American ' s career, showing the human side of his character. During the course of his address he expressed his extreme pleasure at the fitting tribute which had been paid Theo- dore Roosevelt, in naming the splendidly equipped building after hom. The building itself is of the popular school lypr to be frund in t ' e CeVral G ' ates, and rrnv artistic features have been included in the struc- ture. Special attention has been given to the heating and lighting systems, each of which is in strict accordance to the rules laid down by the state superintendent of public instruction. The Junior high school occupies the entire second floor. A spacious assembly hall with a seating capacity for 287 desks is located centrally on this floor. The basement contains domestic science rooms, and manual training rooms, which are used by the Junior pupils. On this floor there is also a model five-room home. The Junior high school has been organized on the three-three plan, and a very experienced corps of teachers has been choien to serve in the new building. Visiting speakers were very high in their praise for the new structure which is both stable and artistic and several declared that Elkhart was a pioneer in Indiana in providing such facilities for Junior high school work. Throughout this semester various public gatherings, such as com- munity sings, spelling matches, and Parent-Teach- ers ' associations, have been held in the assembly hall. It is the desire of the city school officials to make the new edifice a real community center, where patrons and those interested in the school or civic welfare may be free to assemble.

The team, although lighter this year than formerly was fast and played very well in both offensive and defensive style. Through the loyal support of the student body the team was able to take several trips and meet with some of the strongest Junior teams in this section, coming out generally with the big end of the score. A great amount of enthusiasm and interest toward athletics was aroused in the school and an athletic association was organized in December, 1920. Some of the treasury funds were devoted to buying new equipment and to- ward the payment of a debt. There still remains quite a sum with which to begin next year ' s work.

All that I reemmber is that his first name is " Jim " , but 1 know Harriet will pick out a good one because she has such good taste. 1 was riding out the Lincoln Highway a few miles out of Chicago with my boss, when our steering knuckle broke and we ran in the ditch breaking the front wheel. We went to the nearest farmhouse and who do you think I ran into? Our old friend Wauford Pickerell, in the picture of health, and a smile covering his whole countenance. He seemed as surprised as we were. As luck would have it, they had a phone and we called to the garage man to come out in the morning to fix the car. We spent the evening looking over the pet stock and, believe me, Wauford surely does outclass his father when it comes to good apples. Yesterday I was invited to the American School of Physical Culture and the first one to greeet me was Bernice Farley. Bernice has been appointed head of the Faculty, having acrpiired the highest merits in the school. I questioned her if she intended to stay in this profession all her life. She did not give me a definite answer. She said lots of things can happen during the course of a few years. I must close now, so will say good-bye and write soon. William. New York City, March 10, 1928. Dear Mr. Stephens: I just returned from a visit to the high school in Michigan Square, the largest school in the city. You remember Mr. Lar- son, our class sponsor, don ' t you, " Billie " ? Well, I found him there. He has charge of the manual training. He invited me to din- ner with him and Mrs. Larson and their two sons, Junior and Adolph. You no doubt read in the paper about the big fire on Wall Sstreet. I was talking with our fire chief, who happens to be our old friend and classmate, Kenneth Boice, and he seems to think that the fire started from an explosion in the basement. It did not make any noise, though, so we are at a loss as to the start of the fire. Just received a call and must leave im- mediately. I will finish when I return. Four hours later : Really, you know I begin to think that New York is a magnate for women in my profession. There are so many new young girls drawn to New York for this same work. I met the new chief of police today while I was out. You couldn ' t guess in a decade who he is, so I am going to tell you — our old star basketball player, Russell Kistner. He says he enjoys throwing the club just as he used to shoot baskets. He is married and has three girls. Isn ' t it queer what high positions most of our old classmates are holding. I think we had the best class that ever gratuated from E. H. S. I am going to a Women ' s Suffrage League lecture tonight. Emma Schlosser, president of the league, is going to be the main speaker. Why shouldn ' t I be inter- ested in this lecture with such a prominent member of our class as the main speaker. Duty again calls me, so I presume it is best to end this letter here. Hoping to hear from you soon again, as ever, Ella Marie. Eighty-four @R % Chicago , 111., March 15, 1928. Dear Ella Marie : I was so glad to receive your letter and I found it so interesting. Our friends seem to be stumbling in our path and it certainly does one good to see them progressing so well. I have dropped my former position and am now selling scales for my father. I was down in State street drumming up trade which led me to a large retail grocery store. I did not stop to look at the name and whom should I meet but Jesse Priem. Jesse always gave me his inten- tions of going into the retail grocery busi- ness, but I never expected to see him in such a large store in such a short time. He is a great big man now and as healthy as one could wish to be. One thing I can say for Jesse, he is not married yet. Jesse told me there was another old friend who would be glad to see me at the Tribune office. You certainly remember Herman Ort. When I came upon him he had his head buried in work; I was nearly afraid to disturb him. But you would never know him now. His upper lip is hidden behind one of these so-called " misplaced eyebrows " , but he really looks stunning. Tells me has an awfully cute wife and in- vited me out to dinner next Tuesday. I was down to the State and Luke thea- ter and the picture was horrible. The com- edy was the only thing I enjoyed and I ' ll tell you why. The main comeedian was Edgar Shepard. You would have died laughing. Edgar took the part of a Torea- dor. Imagine it. He was in the " bull ring " performing for the supposed President of Mexico. Edgar is one of the most promis- ing comedians of the day and I sure hope him success. I am head-over-heels in work so will close now with go od luck for your future success. Bill. only three take an active part in the per- forming, they are all making big hits in New York. Our class dancer, Dorothy Osborne, did the most daring act on her toes. She holds the world record of standing on her toes. And the most surprising of all it that Ar- elene Peterson is her maid. 1 called at the dressing room and had quite a chat with both of them. You remember Kent Swayne ' s wonder- ful eyes? He, in company with Mark Mon- teith are the star vamps of the season. They are the best ever seen on Broadway. I am taking a short trip to Washington tomorrow to be gone three days. Our case is no brighter in regard to the fire on Wall street. It may be months before we rind an}- clue. Very queer circumstances sur- round the case. Chief of Police Kistner called to get some information this morning but he left none the wiser than when he came. When do you expect to be in Xew York again? I enjoyed your stay so immensely the other time. We might visit the Follies and you can see our class genii. Just, Ella Marie. New York City, March 28, 1928. Dear Bill: I just returned from the Follies. The most surprising thing happened. Four of our former classmates are in it. Although Chicago, Illinois, April 2, 1928. Dear Ella Marie : You must be having a great time going to the Follies and taking trips all the time. No such luck in store for me. I happen to have Sunday afternoons off, so get out once in awhile. I went down to one of the large dancing schools to see the instructors ' exhibition of classical dancing. What you know, I found Jesse Longley there. He is coming along fine and he will soon get his degree as a full-fledged instructor. He gave a very pleasing dance, entitled " The Cave Man ' s Paradise. " Although, his costume was very light consisting of only a bearskin and leather moccassins and a large-size club. I really think he was the most clever of all. Last night I had a date with Xellie Mollenhour. You surely remember her. She has a fine position now and the future certainly looks bright for her. But Nellie let out a secret. She told me, although she Eighty-five PEm X Q AMJAL was up here apparently enjoying herself, she left her heart in Elkhart. But 1 don ' t see why some nice fellow hasn ' t captured Nellie yet. She has changed so much and grown to be such a beautiful girl now. I stepped into a beauty parlor out on Sherman Road and ran directly into Doris Hnsted. Certainly strange things are hap- pening. I never thought of finding her there but she is getting along nicely and is engaged to a nice young man over on East Road avenue. It is now twelve o ' clock and 1 can hardly keep my eyes open and the bed looks so Yours as ever, Bill. New York City, April 7, 1928. Dear Bill: 1 just returned from the Art gallery. It was very interesting and especially so in one corner. You know they devote one cor- ner of the museum to the cartoonist now. Air. Wallace Stover holds the most prom- inent place among American cartoonists now. I shall never forget how poor Wal- lace toiled over our memory boks when we graduated. He won his name first in dear old E. H. S. W ' allace happened to lie in the museum when 1 was there. He has been nut in the country sketching farm scenes. He has the most variety. He was one month sketching around Elkhart. He staved at a farm house and he says above all miracles ever performed was when Esther Mitchell was transformed into a farmer ' s wife. They live on a farm at Emmatown about eigh- teen miles from Goshen. Wallace says she is in ideal health and so is the little laddie also. Our old friend. Palmyra Opfer, is also doing great. She is social secretary for Mrs. Irvin Palmer, formerly Miss Evelyn Alford. Irvin has won his wealth making- school desks without screeching drawers for teachers. A very good thing for teach- ers, in my estimation. I am called to Washington about every week now. I shall never regret my choos- ing this line of work. You come in contact with so many different kinds of people. It is a shame that more people are not inter- ested in their government. It ' s the same as it used to be working up school pep. 1 shall never forget those days. Those were the times of a life — how can I ever forget? As ever, Ella Marie. Chicago, Illinois, April 19, 1928. Dear Ella Marie : It certainly is good of you to write so often. I wish others would do the same. You mentioned something about a reunion. Just the thing. What do you say we plan for it now. Appoint a corresponding secre- tary and everything. 1 didn ' t have much to do Thursday night so I looked over the paper for a good show. I saw that " Smiles and Wiles " was on at the Blackstone, so 1 made my way, and there I found our old friend Mildred Ber- ger. She thinks there is no place like Chi- cago. Lucky she wasn ' t married, because 1 asked to take her home after the per- formance. Mable Kantz heard I was in " Chi " and invited me over to the Kidzie Avenue school. She is teaching English and His- tory and to see them all reciting their les- son brought back man}- memories. Mable has worked faithfully and hard and in- formed me that she was going to be pro- moted to the South Side High School by the beginning of the coming fall. 1 just received a large order for small candy scales from a large confectionary store on State. Ethel Vernier gave me the order. She is managing the business for a big chain of stores. Ethel is slightly larger than when we last saw her. It is a secret; she weighs about two hundred now. Don ' t overwork now-, with good wishes for your trip to Florida, As ever, Bill. New York City, April 25, 1928. Dear Bill: Did you ever hear the old saying, " True friendship like the ivy clings? " When you stop to think of all the friendships you make while in school and how vou come Eighty-six PI •gg UAL upon them in life again, you realize that the old saying is true. So I say. Bill, let ' s make it seem still truer and start planning for a reunion this spring of the dear old Class of January ' 21 of E. H. S. You know the old crowd will he going back to Elkhart sometime during the summer, so why not drop them all a line and suggest that they make plans to go, say in May. We really ought to have it before Mildred Bittinger gets married as she may be leaving for an extended wed- ding tour. You know E. H. S. has an audi- torium now? Perhaps we could have it there. I witnessed an automobile accident yes- terday down on Tenth street — Ruth Suave- ly Burke happened to be the driver. She was on her way to call for her husband at his office. I visited her in the hospital ves- terday afternoon. She married a broker and is very happy. 1 suggested the reunion to her and she said, " great. " She thinks those that are married should be allowed to bring their wives and husbands. I said, sure, as we wanted to know our old friends ' mates. I am getting real eager over this reunion. Ruth informed me that a girl that came into our class in our height of glorv was her husband ' s clerk, Thelma Merkling. I am going out to dinner tonight with an old friend of mine. I am not going to mention his name. Bill, as 1 hardly think it is necessary. We expect to attend the Fol- lies afterward. 1 am quite interested in them since I have discovered that four of our former classmates are in them. lust, Ella Marie. The letters between our two friends during this time will not be published as they are not of particular interest to us. Hotel de Gardina, Tampa, Florida, lime 29, 1928. Dear Bill: Imagine who is proprietor of this hotel? Ursa Walker is the lucky one. He is doing big business, he informs me. It is the larg- est hotel in Tampa. Jesse Priem is his head chef, and some chef. His dishes are divine. I have never tasted better cooking in all my life. He likes it much better than the grocery business. It surely was a shame we didn ' t find them in time for the reunion. They said they hoped to be on hand next summer. Ursa would like to have them all come to Florida and all come to his hotel. If they only could, but I suppose we can hardly ex- pect that of them; is is so far. E. H. S. has some auditorium now, eh? I knew they would get it some daw The students of E. H. S. now are truly lucky. That reunion is one good time always to be remembered. Everyone is getting along wonderfully in life. Perhaps some day some good fellow from our class may be presi- dent of tlie United States. It might be a girl for all that. Women are coming to the front nowadays. The government is buying me an air- plane. 1 have always longed for one but never felt the need for one until just now. I wish you could visit me here in Tampa just as you used to in New York. Always, Ella Marie. Oh, Teacher! It was early and for once all the stu- dents were on time (including Burdette Hummel ). An argument started which came to a climax when Dick Lockton said, " Shut up. " " Det " said, " You ' re the biggest dunce in school. " Miss Sutherland arriving, explaimed: " People, people, don ' t forget I ' m here. " He knew she would thank him not, He cared not for her scorn ; He offered her his street car seat To keep her off his corn. She — " Can you drive with one hand? " He (eagerly) — " You bet I can. " She (sweetly) — " Then won ' t you please pick my handkerchief up on the floor? " Eighty seven vmm m o AmK AN APPRECIATION (Continued From Page 59) years gone by, will furnish, even to the most skeptical mind, sufficient evidence that we as a school owe these men a debt — a huge debt of gratitude. But our debt is more than a debt of gratitude, for gratitude alone does not pay over- head expenses. We owe the business men of Elkhart our patronage and our loyal support. Elkhart ' s students of today are Elkhart ' s citi- zens of tomorrow. Realizing this. Elkhart ' s mer- chants and manufacturers have whole-heartedly backed every effort of those student in striving to produce publications worthy of Elkhart ' s schools. In most cases the actual gain derived from the placing of advertisements in these publi- cations has amounted to an unremunerative fig- ure, although in some instances the value of Pennant advertising has been demonstrated with gratifying results. When, then, do the heads of the various concerns continue their publicity in the periodicals? Merely because in accordance with their progressive poliies and their broader view of things; they foresee the results ,not re- sults bordering on the monetary and the material, but rather on the moral and the spiritual, not results in the form of personal or private acquisi- tion but rather results ending toward community or public acquisition. Are not men of this char- acter entitled to what small tribute we can and do gladly tender them? The business men of the city are in a large measure responsible for the appearance of this book. Indeed, it is a large measure for the busi- ness men of the city, for approximately one-fourth of the total expenditure on this book. They have not only been responsible for this appearance but have made this appearance possible. Now, what shall we say in tribute to them? Words could not express the appreciation — but actions would! So, if you are pleased with Elkhart High School ' s first annual and if you cherish it in the years to come, remember, that the large-hearted, generous, and kindly folk who have always fulfilled our petition and desires, will, in the same way and with the same good spirit, help those who are to follow us, and so, remembering, cherish also these in their memories. — G.
