These heroes and heroines need no introduction to you. They are hoys and girls you see on the streets every dayg they are your young friends' even your own children. Julxa Uornalia, Alice Backes, Josephine Nelson, Paul VanZile. Glenn Weeks, llelen Snyder, Jeannette Pattison, Varmen Fevctte, Frances Piecuch, Ann Ellicott, Kenneth Weeks, William t'-osier, John Hammond, Robert McDonald, Mary Jane Bailey, Evelyn Kizer. James Campbell, Ronald Fore- man, Ruth Button, Bernice O'Reilly, and others- you know them all, The thread of plot running through these tales is liased on the true story of the school- days of these hoys and girls. The verity of the stories is vouched by Mr. Hillman, supervisirv: principal of the Elklanrl Schools, in which the scenes are laid. FIRST TALE Septeniher 6. 1931 found our twenty trays and girls of the Forward together with Winifr-d Carr, John and Robert McCaslin, .lean Little. Betty Elliott, Francis Hall and John Froft se.- ting sail from the Shadow Island to journey across the stormy sea of light, in Search of the island, Knowledge. The course was rough and rugged, the sailors young and inexperienced, hut with the help of their capalilc leaders, Mrs. Hillman, Miss Donovan, Mr. Wood, Miss Mc- Cabe and Mr. Barocco, the good ship, Freshman, healing the silver and green, kept chugging along, hoping and praying for gentle breezes. The well-chosen motto. "Upward Striving," was also attached to the ship, which was now ready to hrave the uneasy waters. SECOND TALE As the months passel on, the hardships in- crtased. hui. not once did the crew give up, Early in the spring, as the ship nosed its way Lu Sorhomore Island, the faces of the crew were cheerful and smiling, for they had nearly travel- ed ove.' the first lap of the journey. In the autumn of 19512 our plucky seanian anchored their ship K'Sophoniore" and set them- selvts husily at work chewing gum and whisper- ing so that they might test the patience of their worthy teachers. The time passed quickly, and towards the end of the year the Sophomore Islanders gave a party for the Freshnien sailois. This formally closed the second quarter of the voyage. THIRD TALE On their return from the sununer vacation. the Fophonnzre Islanders again anchored their shlp, this time along the shores of the Junior Magazine, thus preventing tne voyage from lic- cozuiug monotonous. This same year, the feminine group ef the crew lzegan to take a decided interest in Basket- lzxll, As their wealth was small, and as there was a need for haskethall suits and new halls, it was deemed fit to raise a fund hy card parties and candy sales. Thus the tfiird lap of the ltllll' journey was completed. FOFRTII Ttlil-I The dreams of our class had at last heci realized. In September lllit-1 they landed on Senior Peninsula with hut nine short months to complete the journey. A few new mernhers had lreen added to the crew, -iamcly: Roma Jean Ingersoll, Alberta Adriance, Betty Davis, and Wilma Owlett, whom the ship had pick.-d up along the shires of the Cowanesque River at Nelson. Early in the voyage it was dcridel that after our wonderful experience, we should publisn a look called "The Loud Spaaiicrf' We cherishel the fond desire until we realized it. At last. after four years, we were :sailing towards home to l'e rewarded for all cur hardships. The time we have longed for so often has almost arrived. and all too soon. Out port is near, the goil is nrarly won. We will soon embark on lifes stormy sea, instructed so that we may guil- our lives accurately. and :inchr at last in the peaceful. calm harlior of Success. I'uhlisher's Note A sequel volume to 'l'alvl.ii.l Tales will soon he in the process of compilation. The new collec- tion will have for its plot the further adventures of the thirty-seven lzoys and girls of this collec- tion and others. It will he on the book counters the fourth June frirrn this.

THE HUINIOROUS AME LINCOLN llean Swift said that the :nan who makes two blades of grass grow where one grew before deseives the best the world can offer him. t'on- sidering how much grass there is in the world and cotnparativcly how' little fun, we think that a still more deserving perst-n is the man who makes many laugh.: grow where none grew before. Sometimes it happens that the biggest crop ot' laugh is produced by a man who ranks among the grcatest and wisest. Such a man was Abraham Lincoln, whose wholesome fun mixel with true rhilosophy made thousands laugh and think at the .1llIlt' time. lle was a firm believer in saying, "Laugh and the world laughs with you." Ilis keen sense oi' hiinor helped to make hi,'n the gr: at man that he was. because when- ever hs wxinterl to stress a particularly strong point upcn the ,:eopl:, be usually began by say. ing, "Now that reminds me ot' a story." And when he had told the story, everyone saw tln- point and was put into a gocfl humor. lfvery person to keep healthy ought to have one good hearty laugh every day. For a man vflnse life was so l'ull of great r lsronsiliili ies. lincoln hail many hours tl laughter. Nothfng tan show his eharacter in such a true lighl ll? tht yarns and stories be was so tond ol' tellinz. The great strain on Linct.ln's mind which was produced by four years of t'ivil War might have marlz- him lose his reason if it hadn't been for the humorou.: yarns and stories he constantly toll. No more fun-loving or humor-loving man than Abraham Lincoln ever live-tl. lle enjoycd a joke even when it was o,i himself, and lH'0lllll!Iy- while he got his greatest enjoymtnt from telling stories, he also h:i.l an a,ipreciation ot' the humor in the yarns that were told to him. lleie is an example of a court case which Lincoln won because ol' his stnse ot' huznor anl his knowledge of human nature: Once, while Lincoln wa.: pl 'ading a case, the opposing lawyer had all the advantage of the lawg the weather was warni. and his opponent. as was permissible in frontier courts, pullnl oft' his coat and vest as he grew warm in the argu ment. y J THE LOUD SPEAKER 25 At that time, shirts with buttons behind were unusual, and Lincoln took the situation in hand at once. Knowing that the people didn't like a person who thought he ranked higher socially, he arose and said, '4Gentlemen of the jury, hav- ing justice on my side, I don't think you will be at all influenced by the gentleman's pretended knowledge of law, when you see he does not even know which side of his shi1't should be in front." There was a general laugh, and Lincoln's case was wonr-M. F. ADRIFT IN THOUGHT The music teacher beat incorrect time to the music, the pianist fumbled the keys helplessly in an effort to produce the music, and the rest of the teachers sat with grim faces and closed mouths. After the end of the attempted song. the visibly shaken principal arose and address- ed the assembled student body. "Students of Elkland High School," he said, "I have some news for you. Due to the State's present lack of fundsgwell to make a long story short, there will be no more school for an indefinite length of time." Complete silence ensued. It was as still as a tomb. A pin could have been heard if it had been dropped to the floor. Then there arose a buzzing not unlike that near a bee hive. A look of surprise and then astonishment crept over the faces of the students. Some of them received the news gleefully, while others stopped to examine the more serious side of the situation. The first question which entered my mind was, "What will I do now that I don't have to go to school?" Of course the first week could be spent by indulging in late morning naps and complete relaxation. But even that grows monotonous in a short time. Then some will turn to their pet hobbies of reading, cooking, sewing, music, drawing or sports. Where will this get us? Schooling is necessary to aid us to develop our hobby into our life profession. Many of the boys may be able to obtain im- ployment. Here another difficulty arises. Em- ployers will hire these young boys at lower wages, thus depriving older and more experienc. ed men of their jobs. Also .men without work means more relief money. If people have no income, how can taxes be paid to furnish this needed money? "An idle mind is the Devil's workshop." High school students are of the age when they should best be guarded from bad habits. The parents duty of looking after their children outside of school hours is difficult enough, but when school hours are added, something is going to fall down somewheres. More crime means more jails, and more jails ,mean more money. Again I had run up a blind alley. One question follow- ed another so fast that my head was all awhirl. I was willing to turn the job over to more cap- able hands. One more question tickled my brain until I allowed it to come to the surface. It was, "In years to cotme, if schools are not continued now, will my grand children have to return to- the methods of my grand parents?" The conditions, it seems tc me, may even be worse. School is the hot-bed of character. Like a plant, unless character is started properly, it will be crippled for life. The future people will be like the vicious army ants, flocking uncontrollably to- gether in great droves, killing and destroying everything in their pathway. Let us be broad-minded enough to look into the future and try to curb the inevitable develop ments which would follow the closing of public schools.-J. L. THE SENIOR CLASS TRIP On Sunday, October 14, 1934 our Senior class took a delightful all-day trip to Enfield Glen Park and Cornell University. The class was ac. companied by Professor and Mrs. E. B. Hillman, Mr. and Mrs. Clark Wood, Miss Eleanor Dono- van, and Mr. Orlando Barocco-. Everyone report- ed having had a good time although there had formerly been much discussion as to what place we should go. The trip was highly educational as well as pleasurable. Members of the class found several specimens at Enfield Glen illustrating our former chemistry lessons. The Glen is noted for its natural beauty, and Cornell University is well known to be a beautiful college with a large, spacious campus. If more of the classes could take a trip like this it would help greatly in furthering ro- operation among the students and in promoting class spirit.-J. M. C. 26 THE LOUD SPEAKER ELKLAND IS GROWING If a stranger would walk through many of the streets of Elkland, and if this stranger was any kind of an observer at all, he would be im- pressed by the large number of new houses which are being built in town. They are not small cheap shacks, but pretty home-like houses which have about them an air of prosperity. It probably would be no strange sight to see a numbcr of new homes being built in a large city, but in a town the size of Elkland, it seems that this increase in homes should be a fact worth noticing. Undoubtedly the stranger would say to himself, "Here is a town the people ot' which are not cast down by the general air ot depression. They are up and doing. They should be proud to he citizens of a growing town like Elkland."f'J. L. ONE HOUR TO LIVE What would you do if you had one hour to live? Robert McDcnaldf"I would eat."

THE AIM OF OUR SCHOOL I once read an article on "Why We Go To College." The college professor who wrote the article said that the principal reason for going te college is to raise the American's standard of living. He said, "College is a place where we learn a cleaner, better way of living, a place where American Ideals are placed at the high- est possible standard." From this article cannot we say that high school is also a place to learn to live better, a place to grow, to develop character. Samuel Hamilton, author of 'High School Idcals', says that a student, while in school, sharpens the tools with which he may continue his education through all the years that are to follow. l I Most congenial girl THE LOUD SPEAKER 27 What do our high schools mean to us? A place for pleasure, entertainment, and fun? Oh, no! To be sure we do have enjoyable times in school, but to me high school is a place where I may learn the important things for an educa- tion, a place where I may, by persistent effort, prepare myself for my part in this world of work. Without effort I am helplessg with it I shall aim to be the "master of my fate, and the captain of my soul." The government is excluding the "black hand of depression," is cutting down the number of schools, the length of school terms, and such like, in some parts of our country. What will we do if our schools are wholly or partly taken away. What would we do now if we did not go to schools? Chop wood? No, the forests are under the National Prevention Program. There's not much we could do except eat, sleep, and roam around. And even then these things might at times be difficult to do. We certainly could not all go to work, when there are al- ready hundreds of thousands of unemployed people in our country. Truly our schools are at the root of all progress. None of us can be as wise as Solomon, nor as strong as Samson, but most of us can be wiser than we are. Let's take our learning like we take a new dessert at dinner, with an expres- sion of wonder, and then a smile of deep sat- isfaction when we see that it is good. There have been great men before us, there are great men now, and there will be great men after us: but .most cf them, with a few exceptions, had a fairly good, and in some cases excellent, edu- cation. Now, my friends. let us learn all we can, and be unafraid of work. Our schools are for learn- ing, yes, but also a place to grow in knowledge and characterg a place where we can associate with others, where we can observe and think about acts and deeds performed by ourselves and our fellow men. School is a place to learn, not only from books, but from practise, observation, and service. When a carpenter builds a house, he first lays a foundation of cement or some other sub- stantial material. The walls under the house must be firm, or it will fail to hold up the structure placed upon it. The same is true with you and me and every other student in school. What we are learning now is a foundation of our future years. If we do not use our best material, work and effort, like the faulty house foundation, our meager knowledge will not be of enough strength to support us in our future work. J. E. N. WHO'S WHO IN E.

The follow-- ing program was presented: Selections by the orchestra: American Boy Twinkling Star Play: "The Honor of the Class" by members cf the Dramatic Circle. Carols: "C ome All Ye Faithful" "Little Town of Bethlehem" "The First Noel" Assembly Play: "The Light Fingered Lady" Members of the Dramatic Circle Duet: "Angel's Greeting" Eleanor Horton Roma Jean Ingersoll Solo: "The Endless Day" Magdalene Finelli Violin Solo: "Meadow Queen" Marian Van- Dusen Selection by the Glec Club "Silent Night" Solo: "The Birthday of the King" Eleanor Horton The program was unusually interesting this year because the pupils had more room and more conveniences to work with. We are very grateful to Mrs. Lewis for her kindness in lend. ing- us the theatre: -M. F. RELATION OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY TO THE PUBLIC SCIIOOLS In a talk with Miss Magee, the librarian of our public library, I was somewhat surprisctl to hear her say that she thought the school children belonged to her as much as to the teachers. Her reason for saying this is that a large number of children spend a great deal of time reading, or selecting books and ,magazines at the library. By her guidance in helping them to make their selections, she cultivates in them the desire for the better type of literature. Of course boys and girls learn to read in school, and as far as possible, they are taught what to read. However, our public library with its variety of books, is necessary in order to cultivate taste in the selection of books. We do not iike lemon pie or chocolate cake every day in the week. nor do we like the same kind of book every time we read. No matter how thrilling the best adventure stories are, we tire of that type sometimes and want to real something different. There are historical books. books on economics, hobbies, famous mcn and women, and almost any other kind of book any- one would want. Everyone of these an.l others can be found in our public library, but I wonder how many of us know all we should about our library, and its importance to the school. Let us think about the beginning of our library for a second. When the library was first organized for public use in 1911, it was open only Saturday afternoons ani evenings. There were very few books and only one room of thc two which are used now was open for library purposes at that time. With the help of a wise selection committee, of which our English teacher, Miss Donovan, is chairman, the number and variety of books have been increased to the large modem library, which is now open not only to students and teachers but to all adults of the community as well. Now let us consider the relation of the library to the school. In the fall of 1932 the library presented one hundred books to the high school, increasing the number of books in the high school library to five hundred and sixty-eight. It may also be said here that three hundred books are loaned to the grades each year. This loan enables each teacher to oversee the requir. ed reading of her grade. However, this loan does not mean that children are forbi.lden to visit the library. Indeed no! There are always four or five boys in the reading room of the library. They seem to enjoy the reading atmosphere. "In 1896 the National Education Association formed a new department called the Library Department, and thus recognized officially the growing feeling that the connection between the schools and the public library was a vital one. In 1899 a circular was printed an.l distributed by the association containing such statements as the following: There should be most cordial relations between the school and the library. The librarian should know the school and its work in a general way as an important part of her work, just as the teacher should know the library and its methods as a part of her work. The community should be lcd to regard the library as a necessary pa't of a system of public education." The above is quoted from a book + I THE LOUD SPEAKER 29 'Instruction In the Use of Books' by Lucy E. Fay and Anna L. Eaton, and may be applied to our library and school. The teachers' interest in the library centers the interest of pupils in the same direction. One of the grade teachers, who has helped tremendously in improving the library, is Mrs. Reed Stull. She is, at the pre- sent time, secretary of the library board and shows much interest in the work. In order to leam more about the progress of our library, let us consider the latest annual report of the librarian, which is as follows: Report for year ended December 31, 1933 Number of days open , 197 Number of books at beginning of year . 2737 Number of volumes loaned . .. 7224 Number added by purchase 111 Number added by gift . 24 Number withdrawn 5-I Total number at beginning of 1934 . 2818 Magazines subscribed to: Popular Science Monthly American Magazine Review of Reviews Country Gentleman American Boy American Girl Boys Life Magazines given to the library: Columbia Specialty Salesman Saturday Evening Post Christian Herald Woman's Home Companion Balance from fines and pay books December 31, 1933 518.88 Cash received from fines and paybooks S87.10, total 8105.51 Disbursements: Supplies ,... 529,95 Magazines 10110 Freight on books . 1.76 American News Co. 2.73 Books Rebound and repaired . 12.35 Work on book shelves .51 Box rent at Post Office . 1.80 Total . , , . . . . 559.19 Balance January 1, 1934 546.32 From this report we find that the circulation for the year was 7224, which was an increaes of 970 more than in 1932, and 1254 more than 1931. This shows us that our library is making better progress each year and we should show our wholehearted appreciation by giving our co- operation in every respect. There's much more that could be said on the subject of libraries, but the one thing to bear in mind is the value, help, and importance of our library to our school children and the kind help and influence of our interested librarian. Miss Florence Magee. She has always been interested in library work, and she has done .much toward improving the library, Her smile ing face greets all those who come her way. J. E. N. CLASS' PROP!-IECY While I was sitting one evening before a cheery fireplace, enjoying reminiscences of the past, I happened to notice some books which were neatly piled on the library table. One book in particular interested me .more than the others, being engraved with the words "Loud Speaker" on the cover. How did the Elkland High School Annual Year Book of 1935 happen to be lying here on my table? I thought I had lost it long ago. Upon opening its pages, I found the Senior class pictures among the first pages of the book. Wliy, that is Mary Jane Bailey who is now a member of our Congress sent from the state by their votes. In the spare time :he is busy in her famous laboratory toil- ing to perform a miracle of eliminating holes in doughnuts. Who would have believed that the high school boys of fourteen years ago, Glenn Week's would be America's greatest zoologist and his brother, Kenneth Weeks, the world'3 second 'tLuther Burbank"? John Hammond! The last time I heard from John he was acting as United States Ambassa- dor to France, having a fine time in the gayest of cities-Paris. In order that Ambassador Hammond ,may not become homesick, the well known artist, Alice Backes, practices her pro- fession in Paris, designing and creating dresses for Lelong. Practically overnight, the boys and girls of our class have grown up and made names that have helped make the history of Elkland High School famous. Artists, actresses. scientists, teachers'-America is rich in these fields. Yet, still several ,more of my classmates have made themselves famous. Robert McDonald is taking Mussolini's place as director at Rome. In memory of Caesar, that beloved victor, he ex- pects to erect a statue, because he is indebted to him for so much enjoyment. Kenneth Van- Dusen is a big stockholder on that celebrated "Wall Street". He has a corner on the market 30 THE LO for Van Dusen's famous stringless spaghetti. Josephene Nelson finds her work on the radio. She is "Aunt Josepheneu to the kiddies every night at six o'clock telling them, daily her bedtime stories. Why, here is little Jeannette Pattison! She is tiaveling with Barnum and Bailey circus and is one of the highest paid acrobats traveling with that famous troupe of Tumblers. Her pal, Ann Ellicott is a tight-rope walker in that circus. She toils long hours in all seasons to retain her equilibrium on the slender cord which supports hcr. 0.1 the same page are found Helen Snyder and Elizabeth Davis, both famous musicians traveling with Walter Damroch and giving concerts in noted musical centers. The first person I see on the next page is John McCaslin, who has turncl out to be 11 rancher cowboy in the wild and woolly West. He raises coyotes for de Mille to use in his de Mille's pictures. His brother, Robert, is a gum chcwcr with the popular Wrigley's concern. As his testing powers are so amazing, he is allow- ed to test out the latest 'chewrf Farther d iw.i the page I spy two more of my classmates, Bernice O'Reilly and Gladys Carson. Both of these girls have been recently hised as private secretaries to Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh. I'll wager they have never rcgrettel taking geometry, a subject which neither one was especially desirous to take at first. My, what a large class this is. I never realizel it before I began looking up their prcscnt oc. cupations. I see that the quiet Frances Piecuch is campaign manager for Franklin D. Roosevelt who, incidentally, is running for prcsident again against our worthy classmate, John Vrnft. Frances intends to manage the 'red tape' campaign business for him to the best of her ability. Ronald Foreman is the efficiency expert at the White House, and it is said. from observa- tion, that every man is forced to 'hustle' when Ronald comes around the corner. Washington is indeed blessed with the prrsence of many noted people, for in ad lition to those mentioned before in this paragxaph, Alberta Adriance and Wilma Owlett are efficient librarians in the Congressional Library. Helen Cashdollar has become a wondrous opera singer. All her notes are shrill and sweet and remind one of the mountains for she chews 'Teaberry's' preferred. Acting and singing go UD SPEAKER together, therefore I think. it is fitting to men! tion next Jean Little, who has signed a movie contract for a prominent movie concern to appear in talking pictures as the doulzle of Pola Nejgri, another company, seeking a contract, asked her to .lcuble for Greta Garbo: all these events pointing up to thc fact that Jcan is quite a vamp. Actors and actresses :eemed to be well versec on the subject of 'llivorce', which reminds me that Magdalen.- Fineili is a divorcee, cirlzarking for the fifth time on the uncertain ship 'Matrimony' with :i huslaiid who is famous as the world's best niathematiclan. Dropping the subject of matrimony anti act ing, let us return to the more practical things of life. Among these we find that Roma Jean' Ingersoll has aspirel to 2, position at Colu-inbizi where she teaches Latin to the stuzlegits and is hailed as a famous person. Winifrcd Cara' is Flcnch Professor at Allegheny Follcge, and today her position is coveted by many. Wendell Baker, William Cosicr and Francis Hall are teaching' Physical Education in well knowi cclleges. Paul VanZilc, the big Varsity man, ii teaching trigonomctry way up in Boston where he explains his problen: to all intelfigent coll.-'rc students. Frcrn the above facts, quite a num- lier of my old classmates have turnel out to bc school teacl1.'1's.

Thus ends our class. America is richer f.:r our having lived.-WM. F. THE LOUD SPEAKER 31 CHRISTMAS SEAL SALE The Elkland Public Schools conducted a Christmas seal sale this year, as in years before, which turned out to be a great success, netting us seven dollars more than last year. In the four high school grades the presi- dents of the classes were in charge of the re- ceipts, in the grades the teachers were in charge. The seal sale always causes .much excite- ment in the school, because each grade wants to he the one to sell the most seals. Miss Irene Yurkewitch's section of the third grade came out highest this year with a total of 251355. The sum total of the seal sale was S121.71, an amount which shows clearly enough that every- one must have tried to do his duty. J.M.C. QUALIFICATIONS FOR A CLASS PRESI. DENT AND METHOD OF ELECTION Since the president of a class is its presiding officer and representative, ,more thought should be given to a :student's qualifications and ability to fulfill the duties of that office. The follow- ing are a few suggestions which may help in choosing a candidate. 1. He or she should have a sense of rcs spozisibility, and a willingness to cooperate with the faculty. 2. He or she should be well liked by th: class as a whole, show no partiality, and be fair to all members. 3. He or she should have a good scholastic standing and a practical business sense. 4. He or she should be willing to go ahead and superintend the activities of the class, and be generous in giving his time and interest to the welfare and progress of the class. 5. I-Ie or she should have been a member of the school for at least two years previous to clection. METHOD OF ELECTION At the first class meeting of the fall term, which is presided over by the president of the previous year, a nominating committee should be appointed by the class sponsor. This commit- tee, which should be composed of both boys and girls, should hold a meeting and nominate such persons as they think best fill the requireinents for class president. These nominations are then subjcct to the censorship of the faculty. If these nominations are approved, a second class meeting should be called and the decision of the class reached by means of secret ballots. The newly elected president is then given over the responsibilities of the office. It is an honor to be president of a class. It would be wise to choose to the best ability a person who will appreciate this honor and return the appreciation in an honorable way: 'J. L. LE CIRCLE FRANCAIS This year for the first time a French Club has been organized in Elkland High School. Miss McCabe, the language teacher, is the sponsor and instructor of these meetings. Since this is the first attempt to have a club of this kind, it is rather in the form of an experiment. The members of the club are students of either the first, second or third year of the course of French study. The purpose of this club is to improve pxonunciation, help familiarize the students with the customs of France and the French people, and last, but not least, to banish that feeling of fear and dread which every novice in a foreign language has. These aims are not so very high. They are humble, in fact, but it is felt that all the efforts put into this work will be vvcll repaid. Since some of the members are not as far advanced in the course as others, the question of finding material which would be interesting to the first year students as well as the third year students was no small job. It was then decided that the members of the thir'l year French class should plan the entertainments, asking the other members to cooperate with them in carrying out the programs, At the time of this writing there have been only two meetings. Both were deemed a succsss. The first was held Thursday evening, Nov. 22, at seven o'clock in the high school study hali. About forty-four boys and girls attended. To get everyone better acquainted, a round, called Frere Jaques, was sung by all. After that a guegsing game, games with numbers and coin- mands followed. Nearly all of these games were carried on in French, with only an occasional English word to aid when things became too mysterious to them. After the games the meet- ing closed by use of the round again. 32 THE LOUD SPEAKER On December 12 the second meeting was held. Those attending were first entertained by a French skit, written and put on by the members fbf the third year class. This was immediately followed by the "Star Spangle Banner" sung in French, fi.'st by the ones who were in the skit antl then by the entire group. After that follow- ed ga.mes, more songs, and the giving out of the password for the next meeting. Because the club is an experiment. it was decided that no dues would be asked this year. and no officers would be elected. In the place of officers a committee will be appointed by Miss McCabe to preside over each meeting. This com. mittee generally consists of two or three meni- bcrs of the third year clazs and a representative from each of the other two classes. Much benefit could be derived from this French Club. Let us all work together to tiy to make it a success, not only for this ycar, but for years to come.-J. L. THE E. H. S. DRAMATIC CIRCLE A new project, the organization of the E. H. S. Dramatic Circle, has been undertaken this year, under the sponsorship of Miss Eleanor Donovan. The object of the circle is to promote the enjoyment of good plays. There are at the present time about thirty members, and it is hoped that more will see the pleasure and benefits of the work, and join soon. Anyone from the Sophomore, Junior or Senior classes is eligible for membership. The work of the Dramatic Circle is going forward rapidly. Several plays, which will be given before the high school members and faculty, are under way. and plans for further entertainment are being made. It is possible that the public may see the results of the hard work sometime in the future. It is planned to give a play for the public so that the people may see the results of work and the talent of high school students. Wednesday afternoon preceding 'Thanksgiving a program was rendered in accordance with the holiday spirit. Ann Ellicott, had charge of the Thanksgiving program which was as follows: Song: "America the Beautiful" School Bible Reading Helen Cashdollar Thanksgiving, the Holiday Frances Pieruch Song: "Friendship'y Girls Glee Club A Bit About Thanksgiving M.

HALLOWEEN PARADE The Senior class of Elkland High School sponxorcd a Hallowe'en parade for the children of Elkland and vicinity on October 31, 1934. The purpose was to keep the children out of mischief and to provide an evening of fun for them. 'Thi- following committees were selected: aclvertising committee, prize committee, ways aol means committee, police committee. In spite of the cloudy skies, Halloween night found the high school building crowded with over three hundred masktd children. The police committee kept the children in order. At sever o'clock the lines were formed ani the pai-ao' started, with the band lending. After marching through the main streets of Elkland, the chil- dren halted on Main street in front of the Post Office building. Here the judges, who were prominent citizens of Elkland, selected the eight prize winning costumes. The ntxt thing on the schedule was a free mov.ng picture for the children, but as it was not yet time for this, thi- children were again ushered into the school building where they were supplieii with suckers to help pass the time away. At nine o'clock thi- children took their seats in the Lyric Theatre. Before the picture was snown, the prizes were awarded to the winners. Everyone seemed to enjoy himself throughout the whole evening. The results were also satis- factory because, on the ni-xt morning, thcre was no sign of any damage.-"F, M. P. p ., ii THE LOUD SPEAKER '38 COURAGE "Screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we'll not fail."fShakespeare Everyone's courage at some time or other must be testezl. If all our lives were smooth and flawless, there would be no satisfaction in the end. It is each trial that we over come which makes success so sweet. If we "screw our cour- age to the sticking place," there is no difficulty which we cannot overcome. As we look back over life, it is the courageous deeds of our lives which we cherish. In the World War, the very soul of France was shown by the grim deteumination at Verdun, "They shall not pass". These men were determin- ed to die rather than yield that gateway to Paris. Their courage was certainly "screwed to the sticking point". A modern example of Shakespeare's quotation can be shown by our own beloved and honorable president. Mr. Roosevelt has "screwed his cour. age to the sticking point," and without a doubt, he has given the American people a greater hope than they have had since the depression. Having given to his country "the best he has." no doubt "the best will come back to him" in the shape of a courageous people in a courageous country. . We Fail? Never! "We'll screw our courage to the sticking place"7-A. E. "LIFE'S FITFUL FEVER" "Life's fitful fever"-how true is that expres- sion--a fitful fever, a walking shadow, every thing that's uncertain and unstable. Huge fortunes totter and fall, beggars become millionaires over night, life's but a question at the most. Nothing is certain in this world of ours. One day everything is calm and serene, with the sun shining cheerfully overheadg the next day a terrible earthquake or tornado wipes us off the globe. We poor, ignorant human beings think of life as the all important, everything that imatters, but to be a superhuman?-4'The world's a bubble and the life of man less than a span". Why should we be disturbed by petty trifles, jealous grievances, and the like? Destinyffthe all powerful-doesn't give us our own way about the essentials of life, it just marks out our path, and we have to follow it. Life's a fitful fever with which we have to deal blindfolded, not knowing what is in storeefor us. "Man's life is like unto a winter's day, Some break their fast and so depart away, Others stay dinner, then depart full fedg The longest age but sups and goes to bed. O' readers, then behold and see! As we are now, so must you be."kJ. C. THE FIRST SNOW Softly and silently, swiftly and gladly, The light fluffy snowflakes fly. They rush by my window madly And ,make me wish that I were not I. First they whirl in eddies, And then they slant-wise go: Oh, how I wish I were ready To fly away with them so. How they seem to jumble, Like a fine, white misty veil. They bring us news a-tumble Of a world high above the vale. The wind carries them onward, And they drift in banks so high, They cuddle themselves ground-ward, And in soft furry beds they lie. J. E.

The team this fall played four games of which they lost three and won one. The reason for these defeats is due, probably, to the fact that thc team is composed of nearly all new players, those of last spring's team having been graduat- ed last term. The team, it is believefl, will be in better condition for the spring games. Line up: Haimmondf-catcher J.

Having lost most of its players through last year's graduation, the team had to be made over, and due to the cold and rainy weather had very little time to get into condition for games after the baseball scason. The first gaime was with Jasper, where the team was defeated 12-21. The second team did not play in the first game of the season, but in the second game, with Millerton, both teaims took part. The first team lost this game to thc opposing team with the score 17437. The second team was more decisively defeated 10-37. There was not much time for interclass games, but class teams were fonmed and this gave the players more and better practice than they would have had otherwise. Coach Wood this ycar chartered a bus to carry the teams about the country to their games. This step was taken to avoid the confusion and delay caused by the separate automobiles. First Team-R.

They defeat ed Jasper 6-3. They didn't do so well in their second game, with Millerton, losing the game 4-'7. Before the baseball season was over, the girla, under the direction of Mr. Barocco, form- cd interclass basketball teams in which all the high schocl classes were represented. This early start and the interclass games gave the girls more practice than the boys, and because they were in better playing condition, we expected them to bring home imore victories than the boys. But having to practice on the open courts as do the boys' teaums, they are handicapped by the weather the same as the boys. It is hoped that the boys' and girls' basketball teams of E. H. S. will bring home as many victories as any teams before. First Team-Van Gorden and Cashdollar, for- wardsg Bailey, Carson and Ellicott. guards: Little, center. Substitutes: Caffo, Finelli, K.

When twilight comes, it seems to ine, That all living things depart, The flowers close their house for the eve And wait unseen for the dark. The cows come home softly lowing, The birds depart to their nest, The wind even seems to stop blowing As it waits for the world to rest.

Swiftly passing, scene after scene On through it all we mortals plod, Striving to clear, with the help of God, A blurr'd vision which we behold, Far more precious than purest gold. Some are discouraged, others laugh. Every hurt, though seemingly small, Builds in us a defensive wall. Stronger we'll be, more eager to dare, Rong-her road than encountered there. Onward, upward, daily we elimbg New joys and sorrows dziilv we find. The vision-once, we could barely see, Becomes plainer with each degree, Until we see 'success' on our brow, That glorious dream is real now. Life resembles a muddled ziream, Just as we take it will seem, Upright ever travel along, Always pretend life's one sweet song, All heartaches will vanish away, Peace and contentment Goal will pay. mn-mes SUNNYSIHE OF LIFE Keep on the sunnyside of life, Forget your troublet, forget strife, For regardless of what you do Someone will surely fret and stew.

Due to so many students interc-sted in music, Mrs. Elwood Slingerland, our music insructor, has had the occasion through her untiring efforts, to take care of both a band and an orchestra this year. From the musical entertainment given last year by the school participants, a fund was started to buy band uniforms, and we are hap. py to say that from various engagements the uniforms have been purchased at a price oi 5l5180.00, and they add very much to the band's appearance and success. The girls chorus consists of more members this year than ever before. There are forty-six members of the best quality voices, and we do nat have any doubts that the organization will be a huge success, Mrs. Slingerland has also succeeded in or- ganizing a boys' chorus this year. It consists cf thirty-six members, and we are certain that it, too, will be a success.

THE LOUD SPEAKER 43 WILLIAM G. MYERS Mr. William G. Myers, chief burgess of Elkland and a resident for thirty-two years. was born at Calicoon, N. Y., in 1866. He moved from there to Blossburg, where he finished his education, and has been in Tioga County ever since Mr. Myers, who has been in the sole-leather business all his life, at the present time being outside foreman of the Elkland Leather Company, has traveled in almost all parts of the United States including the Southern States and California., and also Mexico. On his recent trip to California, he made a very enjoyable stop at Great Salt Lake, afterwards traveling through the greater part of the Great Salt Lake by a train which cuts off a considerable distance from the route all the way around the lake. During his stay in California, he often went fi'hing for the large denizens of the sea, and his skill in that lirection is clearly shown by the remarkable snapshots which he brought home. His hobby is raising flowers and each summer he has one of the most beautiful flower gardens in Elkland. His specialty is roses, lilies and gladiolas, of which he has countless beautiful specimens each year. Mr. Myers has always been industrious and active in all the affairs of the community, at the present time being a member of the Odd Fcllows lodge, the Masonic fraternity, and the Boy Scout Board of Review. Last fall, Mr. Myers was elected burgess of Elkland, and ever since, he has made untiring efforts towards the welfare of the community. When asked his opinion on education he says: "Education is everything. Take that away, and there's nothing left." ANGELO B. RUPAR Possibly none of our townsmen has had a more adventurous life than Angelo B. Rupar, manager of the Elkland Electric Company. He was born in the city of Fiume, which is on the Gulf of Tuarero, Adriatic Sea in Austria-Hung- ary, on August 24, 1895. He is the son of John and Mary Roic Rupar. He has three brothers in Buenos Aires, Argentinag three sisters in Italy: one sister in Yugoslavia, and one adopted brother who lives with his parents in Fiume. After the dismemberment of the Austria- Hungarian Empire, Fiume was occupied by the American, Angle, French, and Italian forces in 1918. Fiume was annexed to Italy in 1924. Mr. Rupar attended first grade in Fiume, and when he was seven years of age, his family moved to Croatia, then a province of Austria. Hungary, now of Yugoslavia, where he attended school until he was fourteen. At the age of fourteen, he began to work in Croatia. In his fifteenth year he returned to Fiume where he served apprenticeship in an Electrical Wholesale House. He worked there for three years and in 1913, after reading too many Buffalo Bill books he wanted to see America and cowboys. Having nobody in America he decided to go to Argentina to his brother. Wishing to surprise his brother he secured em- ployment on a tramp steamer, plying regularly between Austria and Argentina. His duties were to make beds and to serve at the officers' table. Fortunately after twelve hours on the ship, he discovered that the ship was sold to Japan, and was sailing for Yokllama instead of Buenos Aires. He did not lose time to leave the ship at the first port, which was Trieste. That was in June 1913. In August of the same year, his brother sent him the ticket, and in September he sailed from Trieste to Buenos Aires, as an immigrant. He arrived in Buenos Aires after thirty days. His brother who held a responsible position in the Electric Power Company which serves the city of Buenos Aires, obtained employment for him in the same company. He worked there seven years, obtaining there the training which en- ables him to hold his present position. After learning Spanish, he enrolled in the night school of the Society for Industrial Education. Right after the war, wishing to see his par- ents. he resigned and sailed back home in 1920. He remained in Fiume for eight months. At the end of that time he sailed for the United States. However, before entering the United States. he had many distressing experiences. When he left Fiume, he went to Trieste, a city not far from Fiume, where he had to remain for twelve days. The first day at Trieste all the emigrants had to present themselves to the steamship Co.'s and American doctors for examination, vaccina- 44 THE LOUD SPEAKER tion, and to sterilize their clothes. livery day for twelve days, they were examined hy hoth doctors. Finally the day oi' departure arrived. Before emlwarking they were again given the once over hy two doctors, and allowed to enter the ship bound for the United States. After twenty-four dreary days, they sighted the coast of America. 'l'hey went into quarantine, the ship did not pass the requirements, and all were transported to Hoffman Island, where eveiyliody had to go through the same procedure as when they sailed for Trieste. l"ro.n there they were taken to Ellis lslan l. At Ellis Island they had to go through another stifl' niefical examination. 'l'heir papers were examined, and they were taken to New York. Finally as Mr. Rupar said, they were "set free." llc then took the train for lilkland. On arriving he was met hy Joseph and t'harl-.-.4 Surina. Since he could only read and write, hut not speak English, they secured work for him at the Elkland Leather Company, where he worket for three months. At thc end of that time he wat transferred to the electrical deliartment where he worked until 1925. When the lilklani lillectrical Company was formed, he was made general manager of it. Until 1915, he was a sulijeet ot' the Aus'rian Crown. In 1915 he liecame a citizen ot' th.- Argentine Repuhlic. A few years ago he lie'-aine an American citizen and says he is proud of it. In 1928 he married Miss lilizalieth 'liI'L'Xl"l' oi' Knoxville. They matle their home with her mother, Mrs. M. I.. 'l'rexler. In 1934 ther :novel to Elkland to occupy their newly lnnlt home on West Main Street. Mr. liupar has one son, "l3il. ly." of whom he is very proud. Mr. Rupar has three heliliies from which h- derives great enjoyment. 'l'hese are gootl books, radio, and his work, Mr, ltupar liclieves that any man who likes to do what he does cannot ask for more. .In 19229 he went hack home to l"iuine for a short visit. When asked his opinion on the value ol' etln- cation, he said, "Eilucatio.i is a great thing it' it is applied in the right way. 'l'here is no ccuntry under the sun where the facilities are so near to reach as they are in America. Il' you do not apply yourself and take advantage ol it, and work hard for your goal. do not lilame the system on your teachers. I cannot give you a sufficient definition of education, lint whoever said that e1lucation startcl in the craflle and ended in the grave, was in my hum- hle opinion. right." NIR. 'l'. .L IHCFIYON llr.

In 1901 he was elected Sheriff of Tioga County and served in this position for a term of three years. During his term of office, he preserved the peace of the county in a very efficient manner and won for himself many friends. With the exception of these few years and a position in the lum- lzer business, his life was taken up with farm. Ing. In 1887 he was married to Della Hall of Farmington. Mr. and Mrs. Van Dusen have a son lllif , William, who is in India associated with Standard Oil Company, and a daughter, Sarah, who at the present time is a teacher in the Elkland Grade School. Mr. Van Dusen thinks that education is a grand thing and believes each and every child shoull get all the education possible, beginning at the earliest moment. M RS. VLARK WOOD liele.i Bates Wool, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eldred E. Bates, was born on July 1, 1902 at Nelson, Pennsylvania. She received her ele- mentary education at Nelson and graduated from there in 1918. Nclson High School was then but a two year high school. She came to Elkland as a Junior and was graduated in 1920. The following fall she started working fox' John L. Sheen as book keeper. She workel there for nine years. In 1925 she married Mr. Clark Wool, who is a teacher and athletic coach in Elkland High School now. In 1930, Mrs. Wood started working for the North Penn Gas Company and in 19312 was promoted to District Manager. Mrs. Wood told me a few facts about the North Penn Gas Company. The North Penn Gas Company was started about thirty-five years ago as the Potter Gas Company. Natural gas was then uscd, but there was always a shortage in cold weather, so about ten years a- go they started using gas manufactured at a plant in Roulette. In 1930, the company decided to experiment a bit, so they drilled on the Palmer farm in Farmington and brought in a twenty million gas well. This caused quite a lot of excitement. Since then there have been many more wells diilled. Now the North Penn Gas Company can supply gas in any quantity and the plant at Roulette has been disbandnned. Mrs. Wood is a member of the Eastern Star and the Presbyterian Church. said she dirln't know as she had one, and told me to a3k her husband. I asked Mr. Wood and he replied with a broad smile, "Giving me the deucef' However, I think it hardly fair to say that is Mrs. Wood's hobby. She is interested in thc home and homemaking. Mrs. Wood's opinion of an education is: "I am very much interested in education and wish that it might be possible for every boy and girl to have at least a high school education." NIR. GLENN NEAL We all know Mr. Glenn Neal, manager of the local Market Basket store, and we feel sure he deserves to be mentioned in the "Who's Who in Elklandf' He was born September 16, 19025, in Cross- fork, Pennsylvania. He attended school in Chatham Township, Little Marsh, Shortsville, and was graduated from Knoxville High school. In November, 1922, Mr. Neal moved to Elk- land and worked in Mr. Buckbee's store. When be left there. he went to work in the Shel lon Manufacturing Plant. While he was there, he was offered the position of manager of the Market Basket, which he accepted and has been hofziing ever since. Mr. Neal says, "This job doesn't give you ,much time for a hobby, but I do like to hunt." When asked his opinion of education, he said, "I think every boy and girl should have as good an education as he or she can afford, whether it is a high school or a college educa- tion. FIducatio.i is essential for every one." MRS. H. Z. I-'RlS'lSll'I Mrs. Catherine Knapp Frisbie, a highly rc. specied and active resident of Elkland, was born in Windhanc, Pennsylvania, on October 4. I870. She attended Athens High School where she was graduated in her early teens. She rel ceived hor later education at Boston Conserv- atory of Music. In 1894 Miss Knapp became the bride of Dr. ll.

Ward of Osceola, a well known physician throughout this valley for thirty years, was bo1'n in Lewiston, Maine, on July 15, 1876. He was the son of Reverend and Mrs. W. H. Ward. He attended high school at Pheonix, N. Y., and at Canadaigua Academy where he was graduated in 1895. After spending two years at Hobart College, Geneva, he attended Medico-Chirurgical College in Philadelphia, from where he was graduated in 1902. His first experience in medical work was owe ycar in Philadelphia Lying-in Charity Hospit- al. He then went to Starrucca, Pa., to practice medicine. Having spent two years here, he moved to Osceola in 1904 where he has residel ever since. Fourteen years later he established an office in Elkland. In 1905 he married Adelaide Cadogan. They have one daughter, Ernestine, who has just completed a four year course in Latin and French at Mansfield State Teachers College. Dr. Ward's favorite sport is baseball.

JOHN BOSTWICK John Bostwick, son of Truman and Mary lLewisJ Bostwick, was born at Nelson, Penn- sylvania, on the 13th of December, 1877. He attended school at Lawrenceville, Pa., until he reached the age of thirteen. At that time he felt quite grown up enough to become a wage- earner. Through the influence of an older bro- ther, he obtained a position at the Corning Glass Factory. When young John reported for duty, he received the first shock of his life. Looking askance at the slight boy clad in knee breaches, the foreman remarked, "Well, you may do, but anyone who is old enough to work here is old enough to wear long pants. Don't come back this afternoon unless you have some." Such were the labor laws of another day. After a year's work, John decided that more education was essential for his advancement. K'-on'equently he returned to Lawrenceville and to school for two additional years. He finally left school to learn merchandizing under the tutorship of his uncle, E. D. Bostwick, of the firm of Wing Sz Bostwick. This firm was evid. ently satisfied with the manner in which he learned his lesson, for they made him manager of their first store in Corning. He resigned from this position in order to open the first store of his own at Lawrenceville. Later in 1912 he transferred his mercantile business to Iilkland. In fact more than half nf his forty years in the store business have been spent in this village. During the time Mr. Bostwick has lived hire the town has more than doubled in size. The tannery has greatly increased in size and the number of employees has been practically dou-' l.led. 48 THE LOUD SPEAKER Mr. Bostwick's opinion of an cducation is that it is a splendid thing, if one intends to make use of his education. It would be impossible to close a sketch of John Bostwick's life without mentioning his greatest hobby-Afishing. Ever since he has been old enough to hold a pole he has been af- flicted with "fish fever" as frequently and as violently as most people contract "spring feveiz' Mr. Bostwick's motto has always been. "Whatever you choose to do, start young and stick to it." JOSEPH B. REDFIELIJ Mr. Joseph B. Redfield was born on a farm in Farmington Township, August 231, 1868. His father, Albert Redfield, was a farmer there. Mr. Redfield has had twelve years of educa- tion in the red, old pine school houses with pine desks. He went to school part of one year in Osceola and one year and four months in Nelson. In the April that Mr. Redfield finished school, he went West with an uncle of his into the Red River Valley in Minnesota, where he hoped to learn the trade of his uncle' -telegra- phy. However, he soon tired of this ani obtai 1- ed work on a farm in Minnesota for eight months. But possessing a roving sort of dis. position, Mr. Redfield drifted to Eauclaire. Wisconsin, where he worked for a lumber com- pany for two years and eight months. Finally he went back to Farmington Town- ship to work on the farm on which he was born. However, in 1898 he left Farmington an'l went to Middlebury where he entered the gen- eral shipping business of livestock and all farm produce. He remained at this occupation until 1913. In 1910 Mr. Redfield moved here to Elkland. where he has resided ever since, all but two years which were spent in Elmira, N. Y. Mr. Redfield has two hobbies. One is that of fishing: the other hunting. He has a camp at Cross Forks where he spends many leisure hours enjoying his two favorite sports. Mr. Redfield has three daughters and two sons. His daughter, Helen, is the wife of Mr. John Pattison, president of the Elkland bank. The other two, Martha and Elaine, are attend- ing' school here now. One son, Albert Leo Red- field. is the manager of the Red and White Store hereg the other, Mark Redfield, has an important position in a bank in Elmira, N. Y. At present Mr. Redfield is a member of the School Board, and the director of the Pattison National Bank. When asked what he tlought about eluca- tion, Mr. Redfield replied, "I think that educa- tion has improved since my short schooling ex- pericnce and that it is on an upward trend con- tinually. I would like to sec domestic sci.-nce and manual training added :o the Elkland high school course." MR. E. B. HILLMAN Professor li. B. Hillman, a very well known resident of Elkland, was born on a farm near Sabinsville, Pa., in 1879. Ile is the son of Rose Briggs Hillman and Charls-4 Hillman. He has one brother, Vern Hillman, of Williamsport. Mr. Hillman obtained his elementary and high school education at Galeton High School. After being graduated from Galeton he was cm1.li.ycd as a bookkeeper for the Goodyear Iiumlzer Company. While working at this job, he was situated in the toughest section of log- ging. A good share of the men were of the worst type. Ile considers that this job was a good experience for him. After being thus employed for a short while, be continued with his education. He chose a course at Mansfield State Normal School, as it was then called. Since hw finished there he has attended Pennsylvania State College. In 1901 Mr. Hillman married Martha Abram oi Galeton. 'l'o them were born three chililren. Marie Davids of New York City, Thelma But- ton and Millard Hillman, both of whom residc in Elkland. Mr. Hillman chose teaching for his profes- sion, and for thirty-four years he has followed this vocation. His first term of teaching was in a country school at Austin. After that he taught in the high schools at Roulette, Shin. glehouse, Genesee and 'I'iog'a. For the past fifteen years he has been prin- cipal of Elkland schools. His work has been made somewhat more difficult on account of the crowded conditions of the school. Two ycars ago, due to the untiring efforts of Mr. Hillman and the School Board, a new grade school building was obtaine-'l which offers ev- ery modern convenience to thc pupils. He has worked epecially hard to rrake the music de- partment of the school worth while. He has THE LOUD SPEAKER 49 always been interested in athletics. Up until the time that Mr. Wood came he was Loach here. In Tioga he coached a team which played seventeen games of basketball and lost only two, in Geneiee he coached one which played twenty-one games and won twenty. Mr. Hillman is very fond of mechanical work. A good many of his spare moments are spent in this l:in'l of work. The new school building holds numerous examples of his handiwork a- long this line. He perfected an automatic spring attachment on the spring doors, and a very cleverly deiigned door stop. A new clock was purchased for the grade school, but there was no control on it for the bell which rings for classes and dismissal. In order to have this control put cn, the clock had to be sent back to the company. The price of the control was twenty dollars. This seemed too expensive and inconvenient. After studying a similar control at the high school building, Mr. Hillman made one for two cents, and up to the present time it has worked without a flaw. Mr. Hillman says, "Education is the only thing. Cold statistics show that an elementary education increases a person's chances of suc- cess seventecn foldg a high school education three hundred thirty.three fold, and a college man has three thousand seven hundred fifty chances to succeed to the uneducated man's single opportunity. If education was not worth while, I woufl not be content to have spent my life as a teacher." REVEREND GEORGE DOANE Reverend George Doane was born in Chat- ham Township, Pennsylvania. He lived with his parents on the farm until fourteen years of age. His parents then moved to Knoxville. where he attended high school. After finishing school there he entered Starkey Seminary. where he took a Latin Scientific course and studied Theology uniler Dr. Ingelsby. In 1887 he began holding revival meetings in the Falkins Church. In 1893 he began his rcgular preaching services an.l was sent to Leetonia, Pennsylvania. His thief hobby is to read the Bible, and at all times takes an active part in all kinds of church work. When he was asked his opinion of education. hc replied. "The world was never in more need of real intelligent leadership than today. Every boy or girl should receive the best education poisible to train him to become a leader." MR. FRED VAN DUSEN An active and highly esteemed resident of Osceola is Mr. Fred Van Dusen, who was born in Farmington, Pennsylvania, September, 18633. Mr. Van Dusen received his elementary edu- cation at Farmington rural school, and later was a graduate of Mansfield State Normal School. After Mr. Van Dusen's graduation, he married Miss Harriet Foster and came to Farmington where they lived on a farm for several ycars. Later they moved to Wellsboro and he obtained a position as deputy sheriff under his twin brother, Frank Van Dusen. From Wellsboro he came to Osceola, Pa., to live.

One of these is that he is lefE.h:ind- cd. This has not hindered him from being pros- 50 THE LOUD SPEAKER perous.

When hc had worked there for that length of time, he deei'le.i to return to Osceola, where he went into the bank- ing business in 1885. Seven years later he went to Westfield and set up in the banking business for about five years. Again in 1897 he moved back to Osceola and has continued there in the banking business ever since. When asked for his opinion of education, he replied, "Education is a wonzlerful thing, and we all ought to try to obtain all of it that we can." MR. EDWARD STIYLL Among the well known older residents of Elkland is Mr. Edward Stull. He was born June 24, 1873, in Elkland. Pa.

His education during his boyhood was obtain- ed in the Elkland High School, and he was graduated in 1889. Being a farmer, his hobby is observing nature, of which he has done very much. Mr. Stull says he can remember when there was only one street in Elkland, a small store, and very few other buildings. He says that the first tannery was built across the river, and that is how Tannery Hill got its name. In his opinion of education he statezl, "I think that education is a very good thing. I wish that we could have more and better schools in which to train our children. If it were not for educa- tion, society would have to take care of the greater part of our people," M R. BARTLE'l"l' M ANLEY Bartlett Manley, son of Joseph Manley, was born March 9, 1855, at Tuscarora, N. Y. He attended school at Nel.on, also Cortland Nor. mal, Cortland County, N. Y.

He served as a member of the Nelson school board and itt secretary for several years. Mr. Manley says he has always farmed it more or less and loves that work. When asked what he thnught of education, be replied, "Well, it is the one thing necessary today, it will help in every caseg one ,might succerd in something he had unlertaken with little education, but he will nf.-ver accomplish as mush as one who has a better education." JOSEPH K YOFSKI Joseph Kyofski, a prominent citizen of Elkland was born in Gaines, Pennsylvania. The family later moved to Elkland wh-:re Mr. Kyofski at- tended school.

At this time he marriezl Miss Karhan, who was teaching here in Elkland. They have two chil'lren. Mr. Kyofski says that he has no special hobby but he believes in sports tor those attending high school. He thinks that sports should not bc compulsory, but should be taken by those inter- ested in them. His belief is that a person not interested in sports will not play his best in games, Elkland, he says, has a chance to have only two sports, baseball and track, successfully because for other sports we have no gymnasium or other equipment. Mr. Kyofski says, "School attendance should be compulsory because if a person has no educa- tion, he may be a 'pick-and shovel' man all his life." THE LOUD SPEAKER 51 GEORGE CRANDALI. George Crandall, a life long business man of Osceola, was born at Osceola, Pennsylvania in 1877. He obtained his education in the Osceola School, which was at that time both a grade school and a high school.

ELTON BAILEY Mr. Elton Bailey, who for the past seventeen years has held the position of Justice of the Peace of Elkland, was born in Mansfield, Pa., in the year 1860. During his boyhood he still re- mained in Mansfield, attending the elementary and high school.

In September of 1904 Mr. Bailey with his brother departed from Man :field and moved to Elkland where they have remained ever since.

GEORGE Ernest LaVerne George, one of Elkland's leading dairymen, was born at Troupsburg, N. Y., August 22, 1877. He was married to Tressie Cook of Woodhull, N. Y., in 1901, and they started housekeeping at Nelson, Pa., in the following April. For the next seven years, they lived in various places in Pennsylvania. In 1908, they came to Elkland, and lived for twelve years on the Parkhurst Farm east of the Tannery which is now known as the Tannery Farm. Then after living for six years in town, they moved to the Parkhurst Farm where they reside at the present time. Mr. George's great-grandfather was an old settler of Austinburg, Pa. His nearest gristmill was at Lawrenceville. He left very early one morning with an oxen cart full of wheat. When he reached the gristimill, there were so many ahead of him that he had to wait until about four o'clock for his flour. On his way home, he reached the place where Elkland is now situat- ed, but which was at that time all solid wilder- ness from Nelson to Knoxville, and in some way got on the wrong road. When he saw that it was quite impossible to reach home that night, he stopped, fed the ox team, turned the wagon over for shelder, built a fire to keep the wolves away, and went on home the next morning. Mr. Georgels opinion of education ls, "An education is necessary for farming or any business any one engages in. Every one should try his best to obtain a higher education." 4. 52 THE LOUD SPEAKER ,..,...........,........, ..,..,........,..,..,..,.....,.....,.,,..,. ................,..,..,..,..,..,...,., ..,.....,..,..,..,..,.....,..,..,.. .,..,..,..,..,..,.,., ..,.,..,..,..,.,,,.,.......,..,.....,.....,... 7 . f E Alumni News 5 .-----n--e--o--o-4A-.--.-+-.--.-...-n-- as-.4-4 -.-- ---+V.-me-v -in--1-4.--Q--.N---Q--n -..--..-.,.....- .-+-.-,.-+-.-- ---Q--Q-.-..--.-in -as -.4--4---a--v Q-Q4-.Q--Q--Q--v--Q-4-.Q-Qs--2 The purpose of this department is to bring to the minds of the readers the addresses and oc, cupations of past graduates of Elkland High School.
