Elmwood has always responded loyally to her country's call. ln the Civil War our county ranked among the first in the state in enlistments. We were also well represented in the Spanish-American War of l898: and now in this greatest of all wars, Illinois and Elmwood are showing their usual patriotism by sending thousands of young men to the colors. In the spring of l9l6, in the Mexican trouble, some fourteen of our young men displayed true patriotism by speedy enlistment. And, when, April 6, l9l7. the United States government formally declared a state of war to exist with the Central Powers of Europe. anew quota was added to those already enlisted in the National Guard and Regular Army, which has steadily increased to its present number of forty-seven. And Elmwood is firmly back- ing each and every man as shown by the prompt over-subscription of the first, second and third Liberty Loans, and our work in the Red Cross and- Y. M. C. A.

Again the Ulmus is sent forth from the Elmwood High School to former classmates. friends and patrons. This iszthe sixth edition. Each succeeding year book has honored the plans and successes of its predecessors and has tried to add new and enlivening features. This class has the proud dis- tinction of being given an opportunity to honor the boys who have gone out from Elmwood High and are now with Uncle Sam. Cladly and proudly have we dedicated the Ulmus to them and have made a special effort to have a photograph of each one in the book. ln one or two cases it was impossible to obtain such pictures. The Book is growing and the Patron- age is increasing each year. The School and the Class of Nine- teen-eighteen take this occasion to thank their many friends and trust that you will extend a. hearty welcome to the Ulmus. , 4.4 I2 THE ULMUS if , THE ULMUS STAFF.

The first Monday of September, I9.l4, should have been marked as a red-letter day on the calendar because that was the time when the class of l9l8 entered high school. There were forty-four of us, eleven of whom started together in the first grade. Soon after school began we had a meeting and chose our officers: President, Ebbie Schoong vice-president, Dorothy Condit: secretary, Grace Carlson, and treasurer, Opal Kelly. The other members of the class were: Alma Lindzey, Lillian Tolbert, Mary Davis, Cecil Dalton, Pearl Dragoo, Marguerite Gregory, Leola Burt, Nellie Schenck, Lora Flannegin, Thomas Dwyer, Edna McDonald, Lucille Kelley, Charles Tidd, Miriam Lyons, Violet Budley, lsaac Barrett, Gayle Weeks, Mary Threw, Margaret Gmahle, Russell Fuller, Naomi Johnston, Mary West- bay, Roy Harkness, Leah Thatcher, John Schori, Marie Kelly, Elmore Brown, Nan johnson, Helen White, Clarence Zink, Gladys Lindzey and Harold Herbert. We also selected our class colors, green and white: class flower, white carnation, and our motto, "Non pro schola sed pro vita" fNot for school but for lifej. Early in the spring, accompanied by Miss Erlbacher and Miss Van Cleve, we took our supper to the woods and enjoyed the evening. Later in the spring we distinguished ourselves in athletics and declamation. ln each succeeding year the class of 'IB gained glory for E. H. S. on the track, in music and oratory. Some important events in the Sophomore and junior years were: The loss of our president, who moved to Washington, Illinois, and the elec- tion of "Ike" to take his place. Another was the class picnic at which some stayed so late that their parents became alarmed as to their whereabouts. A masquerade party on Hallowe'en at the home of Margaret Gmahle. The addition of three to our number, namely Mildred Peters, Hazel Moran, and Leslie McDonald. The formation of the girls' quartette, composed of Edna McDonald, Grace Carlson, Opal Kelly and Nellie Schenck. The reception given by us to the class of 'l7. The happenings of greatest significance during the first of our Senior year were the taking of snapshots for the Ulmus. U On January 23rd the whole school, especially the Senior class, were saddened when they learned that Mary Westbay, one of our number, had passed away at the home of her parents in Southport. She had been ill for about six weeks and had struggled hard to overcome her illness, but the hand of the Grim Reaper could not be stayed. Her funeral was held Satur- day afternoon, January 26th, in the Presbyterian Church. The Senior class attended in a body. TI-IE ULMUS 37 About the first of April twenty-five high school boys, in- cluding five of our class, were allowed to leave school to work on the farm. This was in accord with the wishes of our Govern- ment that the high school boys aid in the production of food. We know of no other high school that has as large a proportion of boys aiding Uncle Sam in this way as we have. On April 5th we were royally entertained by the juniors in the High School auditorium. This year we're sure we would have surpassed all former records in athletics had not the Kaiser put a stop to all track meets. Thus with much work and little play we have spent the final year in Elmwood High School. L. B. M. D. LA CROIX DE GUERRE. Anyone who has studied Virgil's Aenid or Greek History knows about the great wooden horse which caused the fall of Troy,-how the Grecian soldiers were concealed within its mighty sides, how the horse was brought within the walls of Troy, and then, how the hidden soldiers captured the unsuspecting city. This very same scheme is being practiced now on the battle- fields of the Great War,-with hollow paper mache horses made by the crafty French to closely resemble the bodies of dead horses, and left on the field of battle to conceal in their hollow sides a sharpshooter or a spy. Virgil called it Grecian treachery we call it camouHage. He wore the horizon blue uniform of a common French poilu, and he was a patriot to his heart's core. His general was Alphonse Bouvet, of the French army, and for his country and for his general, he would gladly have given his life. His name was Louis Beaucaire. This division of the French army under Bouvet, had been lighting for many months in the trenches, gradually growing weaker, in dire need of relief which could not be sent. And now the invincible Germans had driven them out of their trenches, back about two miles thru a small grove, where they had man- aged at last to stop the advance of the terrible Huns. They were now within forty miles of Paris-their own Paris. A great deal more than even they imagined, depended upon what they did, or-failed to do, within the next few days. Bouvet's forces were situated in a little deserted village beyond the grove thru which they had just passed, and the German lines were now hidden among the trees. It was late Tuesday afternoon,-the French army planned to attack at noon the next day. Bouvet had reasons to suspect 38 THE ULMUS that the Germans were expecting reinforcements-just when, he did not know-but he strongly suspected that the reinforce- ments were already there. or would come during the night. If they came during that time, he knew that he must attack no later than Wednesday noon. But if, by any lucky chance, their forces had not by that time arrived, he would then dare to wait longer for the reinforcements he had been expecting so long. But he must know some way, for Bouvet was very much afraid, deep in his heart, that ifihe had to fight after the German help had arrived, and before he had received his, that the day would be lost. Now in their retreat, there had been a cavalry skirmish and many horses killed, their bodies were strewn thick on the ground, and Bouvet had had the foresight to also leave behind one of the paper mache horses, just in front of the grove now occupied by the Germans, in case the French should wish to use it as a hiding place for spy or sharpshooter, if the armies stayed long in this vicinity. At dusk the French general assembled his men and explained the situation to them, why it was absolutely necessary that he know before noon on Wednesday, whether or not the German reinforcements had come. And the soldiers understood- everyone of them. Then he told them his plan. The fake hollow horse lay among the other dead horses, very close to the German lines, even within hearing distance, and Bouvet ex- plained that he wanted one of his men to button under his coat two signal flags, to creep out during the night across the inter- vening space to the horse, to conceal himself within its sides, and lie there until eleven forty-five the next morning, watching and listening and by that time he would know whether or not the German division had come. Here Bouvet paused and seemed to look into every soldier's face. "lf the reinforcements are there," he continued, and he seemed to speak to every man individually, "I want you to rise to your feet very quickly and with your flags signal the letters Y-E-S, if they are not there spell N-O, it will probably mean death, but I think you all understand the situation clearly." Another pause, then, "Who will volunteer?" For a moment there was not a movement along the lines of blue, then suddenly from the front row stepped a soldier and stood at salute before Bouvet. "I will go," he said. It was Louis Beaucaire. No one said a word. The general quietly led Beaucaire to the place where he was to start and handed him the flags." Remember eleven forty-five and God be with you," was all that he said. During all the night, not a Frengh soldier slept. All eyes were strained out over the darkness of No Man's Land. And THE ULMUS 59 all the next morning the field glasses were passed among the soldiers, from eager hand to eager hand. At eleven forty-three Bouvet held the glasses: suddenly a slender blue figure sprang up besides the body of a dead horse, the arms were raised, two flags spelled the letters Y-E.-a sudden flash from the trees in the background-the arms dropped-the slender figure swayed -and fell. Bouvet whirled around. "Their reinforcements have come-Beaucaire was shot-and-we-will-conquer." The French won the day, in spite of the fact that they were outnumbered three to one, in spite of the fact that they were weary and discouraged. Something inspired them-something intangible-but something strong. Beaucaire's body was found and in a few days this brave soldier was laid to rest, with all military honors. On the breast of his blue uniform, over his lifeless heart was fastened that much coveted emblem which adorns the breasts of so many French soldiers, generals, captains, simple poilus,-all the flower of the French nation-The Cross of War. ---- -L. H. F., 'l8. CLASS WILL. Upon behalf of my client, the Class of l9l8, of Elmwood High School, State of Illinois, U. S. A., l have called you to- gether upon this serious occasion, to listen to her last will and testament and to receive from her dying hand the few gifts she has to bestow in her last moments. These are decisions as at last arrived at through very deliberate consideration. Owing to the flighty condition of her brain and the unusual disturbance in its grey matter, she begs me to state for her that she may quite possibly have been mistaken in her inventory: but such things as she thinks she has, she hereby gives into your possession, praying that you will accept them as a sacred trust of one who has gone before. Listen, then, one and all, while I read this document, as duly drawn up and sworn to: We, the class of l9l8, in thirty-five separate and distinct parts, being about to pass out of this sphere of education, in full possession of a crammed mind, well trained memory, and almost superhuman understanding. do make and publish this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all former wills or promises by us at any time heretofore made or mayhap carelessly spoken, one to the other as the thoughtless wish of an idle hour. As to such estate as it has pleased the Fates, and our strong hands and brains to win for us, we do dispose of same as follows: 40 THE ULMUS Item: We give and bequeath to the dear faculty who have been our instructors in all the wisdom of the ages, a sweet and unbroken succession of restful nights and peaceful dreams. Item: We give and bequeath to our beloved superintend- ent, Prof. C. C. Condit, our sincere affection, our deepest rever- ence, our heartiest gratitude, and the whole unlimited wealth of our eternal memory. Item: We give and bequeath to the Elmwood High School, as a whole, all of our "pep", which we have so ardently displayed upon every occasion, and the right to elect a cheer leader who, we hope, will try to follow closely in the well-worn footsteps of our fragile but wonderfully accomplished contortionist. Item: We give and bequeath to the Elmwood Gazelle and to the talented editor thereof, all the events of our life, past, present, and to come, with all the wonders, sensations, hair- breadth escapes, glorious attainments and other deserved or undeserved notoriety and fame with which we may have been or may hereafter be associated, trusting that they may furnish plenty of material for news items, and brilliant editorials for ages yet to come, and serve as an inspiration for those younger students who so naturally look to us for examples. Hem: We give and bequeath to the Junior class, as a stu- dent body, John Schori's knowledge of economics, philosophy, art, science, mythology and the universe in whole or in part. We trust the class may be able to survive it. Item: The following may seem as trifling bequests, but we hope they may be accepted, not as worthless things, lavishly thrown away, because we can no longer keep them, but as valu- able assets to those who may receive them, and a continual reminder of the generosity of heart, displayed in our free and full bestowal: lst. To the basketball team of next year, the remarkable ability of Roy Harkness, Russell Fuller, and Elmore Brown. Charles Tidd couldn't be induced to surrender his. 2nd, Elmore Brown bequeaths his richly ornamented meer- schaum pipe and full instructions as to its use to Verne Wilson. 3rd, Opal Kelly bequeaths her admirable way of refraining from all communication either in class or out, to Bruce Mullen, whose attention Clifford vainly tries to attract. 4th.

Opal Kelly, Dorothy Condil. THE CRYSTAL BALL. A blue haze of incense pervaded the room which was prettily decorated with Oriental rugs and draperies. ln' the center of the room upon a slender-legged table lay a huge ball of clearest crystal sending out myriad lights. Over the ball l saw heavy curtains part and the Seer stood before me. l rose, spellbound. I began, "My classmates--" "I understand. you wish to look into the crystal ball." Dazed, l walked toward him and gazed transfixed into the clear depths of the crystal. Slowly a cloud gathered, barely per- ceptible at first, but gradually grew darker and thicker and finally with a Hash was parted and there beside our battle worn flag of victory stood our famous lieutenant, James Cusack, THE ULMUS 43 who had brought back the Kaiser's mustache from far-off battle- fields. Little by little the scene changed and there came to view a group of notables. Roy Harkness, who had just completed an extensive Cand extendedb course in photography, was attempt- ing to photograph Dr. John Schori, who was arguing too ex- citedly for even a snapshot. ln the background there hung a bright new shingle bearing the inscription: P. DRAGOO N. SCHENCK Artists, Cartoonists and Caricaturisis Drawings of Senators and Officers a Specialty ln the distance upon an enlarged picture of the registration books, l saw the names of Lucille Kelley and Howard Atherton entered for a course to overcome bashfulness in Nan ,Iohnson's School of Oratory. ' . A slight change was noticed in the crystal and there came to view the cross-section of a vaudeville house whose bill an- nounced the Great and Only Little Isaac Barrett in an ardent plea for Woman's Suffrage, and Margaret Cmahle in her Ex- clusive Serpentine Dance. After a moment of total darkness there fiashed before my eyes the combined beauty parlor and hair dressing establishment of Lora Flanegin, who has the only remaining method of keep- ing her hair down, which she was demonstrating to Harold Herbert, owner of a large greenhouse, next door to which was the celebrated Elmore Brown's cafeteria. When the scene again shifted I saw the interior of a moving picture show. Upon the screen Hashed "Noted Men and Women at Work and Play." Then there appeared "Charlie Chaplin". formerly Charlie Tidd, who liked nothing better than to flirt with Frances Van Sickle, who now far outshines the former Mary Pickford. Next I was not surprised to see the Elmwood High School graduate of world-wide fame for literary research in "thc method of writing letters," Mrs. Gayle Weeks Dwyer. There were some very striking pictures of the wotk being done in the South Sea Islands by the Rev. Leola Burt after the tragic fate of her assistants, Ruth lreton and Gladys Lindsey. Very interesting was the scene showing Opal Kelly and Leslie McDon- ald, very similar, indeed, to Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew. ln- teresting views of the popular actress, Grace Carlson, and her leading man, Thomas Dwyer. This interesting collection of films was passed by Dorothy Condit, president of the National Board of Censorship. ln the darkness that followed I thought of the many class- mates whose fates I had not yet seen and feared that the crystal 44 THE ULMUS ball had shown me all that it could summon. But just as I was giving up hope l was startled to behold Marguerite Gregory leading a parade of woman suffrage advocates, among whom were Helen White, Alma Lindsey and Leah Thatcher. The campaign speeches of Mary Davis and Naomi Johnston were exciting the interest of a great crowd of ardent admirers and Mildred Peters took this opportunity for delivering a carefully prepared extemporaneous speech. Over the noise of the throng could be heard the voice of Edna McDonald, the celebrated prima donna, who was entertaining a group in the corner. In another corner Russell Fuller ran a booth which was a division of his main store in the city. ' As the light became dimmer l saw Patrick Cusack hanging on a rope ladder playing a passionate and heart rending "Romeo" to Mary Threw, who could not be made to listen in spite of its magic charm. Gradually the lights disappeared before my eyes. The Seer and l alone remained and I left the room joyous at having seen the prosperity of the Class of l9l8 and was proud to be a mem- ber of it. Lucille Kelley, Grace Carlson. SCHOOL DAYS. It has been truly said that the years spent in High School are the happiest, most carefree, of one's life. For years the dream of entering the sacred portals of that famed hall of learn- ing has sustained the struggling youngster in the grades. Then at last September comes. l-le is a Freshman and of course as such-inconspicuous. Not to himself, however. To him it seems as if every eye in the vast, awe-inspiring room is fixed upon him with the questioning air-"Just why are you here?" To walk the full length of the room is torture, to fail in a re- citation is crushing. So the year passes, his natural timidity with it, and the following September finds him a Sophomore. Now things look brighter. Somehow that assembly hall has shrunk. Really it seems close in there at times. l-le watches the entering pupils with a supercilious air and a twist to his already scornful mouth. There absolutely is no excuse for such stupidity. He decides to wink at that cute little Freshie-gee that sure fussed her-next time he believed he'd try a Junior. His grades decrease, he manages to get "canned" once or twice and so Enally, after a rather "smart-aleck" year, develops into a full-fiedged Junior. g Ah-he really must wear better clothes now. Theker- THE ULMU5 45 ladies expect it-you know. He learns to dance, in fact, he knows the dear girls must have some fun in life. His grades are somewhat better: he has really decided to quit being a lady fusser and prepare for law-when bang-he is a Senior. Now life changes. How could he have wasted all those years? The athlete is the only hero. Girls are an awful nuis- ance. His garb consists usually of old trousers, blue shirt and a rather worse for wear sweater. He becomes very much inter- ested in the welfare of the school. He must smoke for he is a man now and he even dares to talk confidently with the teachers. The year book is the greatest worry of his life. Finally it is sent to press. He realizes that in a few more weeks he will no longer be a member of that beloved, if somewhat cramped, assembly hall. Someone else will have his old desk and scratch out his initials. With this last thought he rushes home, dresses with extreme care and plunges into a round of dates, dances and other amusements until he is at last seen marching up to re- ceive his diploma-his real feelings covered completely with a "gosh, but l'm glad to be out of this" air. -D.

Our introduction was an experiment and was cruel to say the least, but we stood the test remarkably well and showed our elders that we were made of sterner stuff than they had supposed. Without a murmur we accepted the out- grown playthings of the class of '14 and the taunts of "Green Freshiesn from our upper classmen. On Monday, September 7, the teachers found us all in our seats as meek as little lambs. We made many resolutions, many of which have been broken and only a precious few kept. For the first few weeks we were too busy getting accustomed to our new conditions to think much about fun, but by Hallow- e'en we had become settled enough to think about having our First party. Our social dutiesvhave not taken all of our time, however. ln the school room we have worked diligently and thus have gained the good will and praise of our teachers. To our relief we have learned that "Prof." is not half as cross as what the l9I4 people said he would be. Of course, our coming in High School must have cheered him up a lot. Thus, our first year in E. H. S. passed and we were promoted to the ranks of the Sophomores. During this year a few of our classmates dropped by the wayside but the majority still remain- ed. Among the ones we lost were the cheer leader, Ralph Ireland, and Doris Shively, now living in New York. At last we came to our Junior year. ln this year the service flag was dedicated to the school and we. the juniors, are very proud of the fact that our star is for a former member of our class, Leonard Knox. Leonard felt the call of his country and now is at the Great Lakes Training Station. Now, in conclusion, we, the juniors of E.. H. S., sincerely hope some other classes may End this to be of benefit, that some- time they may profnt by our mistakes, and if it is possible to do so, depart with more honors, than have fallen to our lot.

"She is perfectly useless and always in the Doctor's way." The nurse in charge of Ward C nodded sympathetically. "Why clon't you have her transferred to London or one of the convalescent hospitals?" "But you see, Ellen, her father supports this hospital, and to get rid of Dorothy would be impossible." The weeks went by and the boom of the big guns grew nearer and nearer. The ambulances continually came and went from the hospital and the operating room was full day and night. New doctors, surgeons, and Red Cross nurses arrived but still Dorothy stayed. Everyone made fun of her and soon she was given the nickname of "Useless". The next week Lanier, the most daring flyer in France, was brought in. At first his wounds were thought to be slight but he soon became delirious. There was an anxious consultation and it was decided that his best chance lay in an operation. The junior surgeon called for an ambulance but was told that the last car had just left the yard. "But if we do not get him to the main hospital at once, he cannot live," said the young surgeon, "and we have no one to drive the car." Dorothy, who was passing the door at that moment, heard Doctor Endicott's words. She entered the room and in the farthest corner saw the unconscious form of Lanier. "Let me take him, Doctor," she exclaimed: "I can drive a car as well as any ambulance driver." At first the surgeon hesitated, but knowing it was a case of life or death, he told the young nurse to be ready at once. ln a few minutes the wounded Frenchman was placed in the huge white ambulance and Dorothy was ready to go. "lf you can't make the ten miles in an hour, Miss Morse. there is no hope for him," cautioned Doctor Endicott. O, but how fast she drove, for she knew it was to save a life and she would be doing this for her country's sake. Never be- fore had ten miles seemed such a long distance and it took all her strength to guide the car during that extremely dangerous journey. Ten minutes later a shell-scarred ambulance tore down the last bit of road, and swung into the court yard of the main hos- pital. Dorothy felt relieved, for she knew that they could not call her "Useless" any more. Some time later the surgeon who had operated on Lanier, appeared and said to Dorothy, "You have indeed been a useful person, Miss Morse, for you have not only shown true patriot- ism, but have saved the life of one of our bravest aviators."

Ralph Bacher THE ULMUS 53 "THE CAPTAIN OF THE ELEVEN" The captain, coach and trainer of the Dayton College football team sat about a table in the room of the coach. It was the evening of November 27th, and tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, the maroon and white were to meet on the gridiron, their old rival, Columbia College. The bright electric light illumined three thoughtful faces. john Fairfax, the captain, was a broad shouldered, pleasant-look- ing young man of about twenty-one. Ripley, the coach, a man of probably thirty years, was scratching away on a piece of paper Mr. Jackson, who had been physical director of the school for some years, had fixed his eyes on Fairfax. At length, Ripley, looking up, remarked, "That leaves only the right-half and I suppose, Lane, is first choice." "To my mind, yes, but Fairfax thinks Wilson should start the game," replied Mr. Jackson. ' Ripley glanced at the captain and noticing the stubborn creases about the mouth, he concluded it would be no use to argue. "I think we had better start with Wilson: if he cannot hold his own, then put in Lane," remarked Fairfax, thinking it best to explain a little. Ripley's pen scratched again and then suddenly stopped and the coach read off the line-up. A half hour's silence followed. During which interval, the captain suffered more than anyone knew, for he realized well that by placing Wilson in l..ane's place, he was running a great risk. The other men watched the captain. They, too, knew that he was sacrificing the game. As the captain arose to go, he turned and said, "l wish, Mr. Ripley, you would change that line-up." "Sure," was the quick response, "What change would you recommend." "Mark out Wilson and put in Lane at right-half," was the re- ply. Fairfax gave a sigh of relief. l dicln't think he would do it," commented the coach. "Nor I," replied Mr. Jackson, "but I guess Fairfax is all right yet." "Two minutes more," called the quarter. Then came the signal and Columbia was pushed back ten yards. Lane emerged from a heap of straggling forms and dashed on. The spectators watched breathlessly. Lane stumbled and fell, unconscious. He remembered nothing more, until a familiar voice seemed to rouse him from his stupor. It was the voice of Captain Fairfax, as he said, "That was a grand run, old boy, over by two feet." 54 THE ULMUS That night Fairfax sat musing, about the would be captain. Lane had won it and deserved it. There was a knock at the door and in stepped Lane, himself. Without many preliminaries, Lane began to talk business. "Fairfax," he said rather modestly, "you know after today's game the fellows all want me for captain." Yes," said Fairfax, struggling with himself, and you are more entitled to it than I." "But the point,is," stammered Lane, "I don't want it, l wasn't made for a captain and you were, l couldn't drill the team like you have. It isn't' in me." Fairfax did not reply. Lane rose to go. "Lane," said the Captain, "let me shake your hand, maybe you were right about it." "Sure," replied Lane, "l'm always right, Goodnight." "Goodnight," Fairfax went to bed a different man that night. , - -'e'1 r I . f'-iv . lf", - 1, l ge-ffQr1. i 3 ' .3 f l l , , my . 1 ' - 'ff 'A I I, . K 1. - X- . , 3 Xxx.

A dreadful disease was ravaging the whole school, but as its first and worst attacks were confined to the old Academy of learning in one oflthe suburbs, l will devote myself principally to it. ln the first place we all caught this dreadful disease from the large and learned professor clear down to the smallest "Freshie." The strangest thing about the matter was, however, the unlimited number of forms in which it appeared. ln the case of every- one it had enough similar symptons to show that it was the same disease, and it also seemed to develop most strongly in some particular direction. The most general symptons were a great loss of flesh, especially around the eyes, a deplorable lan- guor at times, a great desire to be alone, a loss of appetite and a loss of sleep. The principal of our school grew desperate. First he length- ened the hours of study, and then he 'forbade us to sit on the shady lawn. l-le thought the matter with us was that we had a single attack of spring fever. This course of action, however, only made everyone of us worse. We became sick and more sick. At last, the principal commanded the head of the biology department to investigate the cause and if possible to kill the troublesome microbe that was threatening to quarantine the place. The biology professor worked' night and day. At last, one charming moonlight night, he was rewarded by hearing and seeing something rustling about among the rose bushes upon the campus. The professor crept up, brought down his butterfly net with a swoop, and after a hard struggle succeeded in bearing the myster- ious creature up to the laboratory. The microbe was a wonderful soft pink creature, it was covered with white feathers. Now, of course every one wanted to see the microbe which had been causing so much trouble. We, thinking that now since the microbe was captured we would get well, crowded up to the laboratory to gaze upon it. But, sad to relate, no sooner had we even looked than we were a thousand times more sick than we had ever been before, Some had to be borne away on stretchers, and the rest were only able to drag themselves about. Thus things were going from bad to worse, when the first of june arrived and with it, of course, the summer girl. She was the same as ever in her starchy whiteness. Her smiles and grace only shown more in contrast with the rest of the people. TI-IE ULMUS 59 As soon as she heard of the distress at the Academy, she made her way, in spite of all cautious foreboding, straight to the very laboratory where the microbe lay. And, lo and behold, when she got there and saw the heaps of sad and sickly people lying on the floor and the microbe in the center, instead of being sympathetic. she simply threw back her head and shrieking with laughter said: "Ol" Most extraordinary learned professor, so you don't know what this microbe is! Why it is older than the grandfather of all the microbes. ln fact it was first seen in the 'Ancient Mythology of Greecef " Then, still laughing she Huttered across the room and over- turning the glass case poking the soft pink microbe with her Huffy parasol exclaimed: "Come Cupid, aren't you ashamed of yourself. I have been looking over half the earth for you!" And as the microbe smiling demurely, and the dainty summer girl danced out of the door hand in hand. she threw over her shoulder a triumphant little smile. Nl. S.

During the past few years musical activities in the Elmwood High School have undergone a decided change. Especially in the last two years has much enthusiasm been shown on the part of the students. Thishin a large measure, has been brought about by the work of Mr. Campbell, who has taught us music since we entered the first grade. The result of his efforts have been shown in the different departments of music in the high school and grades. While the school chorus is not up to its former standard we can sincerely say that our girls' quartette and the glee club are the best the school has ever had. If you ask any other members of the Peoria County Literary, Musical and Athletic Association if we have any musicians, they THE ULMUS 63 must answer "Yes," for at the track meet last year at Chillicothe, we were "high point getters," in the musical contest with three firsts and one third. John Schori and Mable Worley represented us in high school and grade vocalg and Adrienne Herbert and Margaret Kilpatrick in the high school and grade piano contests. The three young ladies received the firsts and john Schori the third. Santan: Girls' Qauartzttz THE GIRLS' QUARTETTE. The girls' high school quartette was organized during the term of l9l6-I7. The members are Opal Kelly, Grace Carlson, Nellie Sohenck, and Edna MacDonald, all of whom are mem- bers of the class of I9l8. They deserve the utmost credit for their delightful singing at all of our entertainments and benefits: and will be missed 64 THE ULMUS very much by the school as no program seems complete without a few selections from them. At the beginning of the last school year an orchestra was formed from high school students. This organization played at several of our high school entertainments and was well liked. Miss Wilkinson, our eighth grade teacher played first violin and acted as conductor. The other members of the orchestra were Mable Worley, pianist: Leslie MacDonald, first violin: Rowena Wasson, second violin: Richard Schenck, clarinet: Vern Wilson, saxaphone: Gerald Jarman, trombone. At one or two of our entertainments Clifton Conver, class of 'l7, and Harry Niece, of '09, played the flute. A Early in the year a project was started to organize a school band, but it did not materialize. Several of our boys were members of the Elmwood Marine Band, i. e. "Sprout Band," which gave concerts last summer: and a good ten or twelve piece band should have been organized. H BOYS' GLEE CLUB. ' The Boys' IGlee Club under the direction of W. S. Campbell, has doneiunusually good work this year. This organization was started four or five years ago. but it is at its best this year. The people of Elmwood, since then, have actually wished to hear it. Not only does their repertoire include classical sel- ections, but they have brought down the house with such pieces as "The Piazza Tragedy" and "The Green Little Apple." Seven members of the glee club whose places will be hard to fill will be lost this.year by graduation. These are as follows: Thomas Dwyer, Leslie MacDonald, James Cusack, Elmore Brown, Howard Atherton, Russel Fuller, and John Schori. The members of the Clee Club are: - First Tenor.: Second Tcnora Clifford Wiabel Richard Schenck Thomas Dwyer Vern Wilson Leslie MacDonald Ralph Bacher james Cusack Lester Holt First Basses Second Basses Elmore Brown john Schori ' Harry MacDonald Howard Atherton Dean Condit Russel Fuller Edwin Miranda Bruce Mullen THE ULMUS Z!5ups' Else Qllluh THE ULMUS THE.

ULMUS THE PEORIA COUNTY MEET. The Peoria County Athletic, Declamatory and Musical Meet was held at Chillicothe, May 25, l9l 7. It certainly was a perfect day for Elmwood. her talented representatives carried away so many honors that it sounds like repetition to give a summary of events. It was the greatest in the history of the local schools and we doubt if any High School ever won a meet with as large a majority of points. We have now won the county meet four times out of five losing the other by only one half point. This year was the third straight and entitled Elmwood to keep the Welte and Weiting Cup. Nor was it brawn and muscle alone that won: our declaimers and musicians covered themselves with glory and con- tributed largely to the grand total. Great credit was due Mr. Crandall, who spent much time in training the boys for the meet. The following is a summary of places won by our contestants: 50 yd dash-Green first: Kilpatrick second.

A strong head wind made the running of events extremely difficult, but our boys made a good showing. each of them re- ceiving a silver cup for placing in his event. No other school in Illinois, outside of Chicago, except Manteno did as well. Fuller got second in the mile, Green fourth in the broad jump and Tidd, fifth in the pole vault. Elmwood ranked l3th in a list of over 70 schools competing. THE EL PASO FIELD MEET. Three E. H.

S., not only as to the number of games won, but from a financial standpoint as well. The first and probably the best game of the season was played on the Canton floor, resulting in a victory for us by a score of 34 to 33, in an overtime game. With such encouragement the team went along at a rapid pace, defeating all comers until Canton came up to Elmwood and got revenge on us with a 40 to 30 victory. But they earned it and our boys were defeated but two times more in the remainder of the season. Once at the hands of Washburn, 29 to 26, and later at the State District Tournament in Peoria, when Cuba defeated us by the narrow margin of two points. This was the hardest game to lose, one of our star players being unable to plav on account of injuries. But the team came back strong and in three weeks won the Peoria County Tournament with very little opposition. Winning from Brim- lield, 44 to 25, and from Dunlap, 50 to I3. These were almost duplicates of the scores by which we had defeated these teams earlier in the season. Much credit for our success belongs to Mr. Ralph Kilpatrick, who coached us after the Christmas vacation. We wish also to thank Mr. Nichols, of Yates City, who aided us in preparing for the County Tournament. Below is the summary of the season: Canton .......... Yates City . Washington Dunlap ....

A reception for the entering pupils and new members of the High School faculty was given on September 28th by the members of the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes. The grade teachers were also guests. Although this was the first event of the kind in the history of the Elmwood High School, it proved to be a success. The program began with several songs by the school. Then the address of welcome was given by Grace Carlson of the Senior class. This was responded to by Ruth Wooten of the Fresh- THE ULMUS 77 man class and Miss Swinton of the faculty. This was followed by a selection. from the quartette. Mr. E. Wiley, president of the Board of Education, gave a short talk, following which the school sang. Then light refreshments were served, closing a very pleasant and profitable afternoon. JUNIOR-FRESHMAN PARTY. On Tuesday night, February 26th, in Dalton's hall, the juniors and Freshmen of Elmwood High School gave a fare- well party, in honor of Leonard Knox, Paul Sampson, and Ralph Wiley. Leonard Knox, a junior of E. H. S., had just enlisted in the radio service of the navy. Paul Sampson, a Freshman, had enlisted in the same branch, and Ralph Wiley, of the same class, as an apprentice seaman. The first two of the boys ex- pect to leave soon for the radio service at Harvard University. Never before in the history of Elmwood High School has there been reason for such an occasion. For these are the first high school students to leave their classes to enter directly into the service of Uncle Sam. In anticipation of this great event, with no small effort on our part, the hall was very tastily decorated in our national colors, thus making the bare little room look cozy and inviting. The bashful Freshmen were at first backward about enter- ing into the evening's enjoyments: but when sweet sounds came forth from the piano played by their classmates, Mabel Worley and Russell Remmele, they just simply couldn't sit stillg so all entered into the dance, even those who had never before tried it, and when exhausted they recuperated and entered into the card games. But that isn't all. Mr. Condit, in behalf of the local branch of our Red Cross, presented each of the boys with the most useful comfort kit. Of course it was our brave Juniors who responded-and brave was well used-and did take courage to respond to a large crowd of classmates and friends. So, with a smile on his face and a tear in his eye, Leonard told of his appreciation. . The merriment followed and light refreshments were served, cafeteria style, and the evening pleasures were brought to a close. The outside guests were the faculty and Mrs. C. C. Condit.

' On April fifth, the annual Junior-Senior reception took place. It was -held in the'high school auditorium, which ,was gayly decorated with flags, pennants and class colors. The juniors first gave an entertaining farce, "A Case of Suspension." Then the evening was spent' in games and dancing, followed by a patriotic luncheon. Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely, and the Seniors willingly admitted that the juniors were even better entertainers than they fthe Seniorsj were.

The day arrived, the hour was twelve, To the woods we went a-straying. The girls were prompt, they always are But the boys were delaying. The purpose was our pictures to take, Impossible without our boys, . The girls plowed on thru dirt and dust, And then they heard a noise. "What could it be," they wildly cried, You say, "The German hordes," No, no, false guess, it only was The boys coming in Fords. And so it befell, on that hot day, That every girl did walk. Out to those woods, while the boys did ride, But what's the use to talk? -D. C., 'l8.

Again and again the brute repeated the blow, and still she gave no sign of suffering. But, when with rapidly growing anger, he struck her for the fourth time, she shrieked aloud and her head flew off. She was only a-match. We think that Prof. Condit should be fired because he is a bass-viol creature. Freshmen are warts on the hands of progress. A word in the mind is worth two in the dictionary.

The school year just closing has been filled with events of more than ordinary importance. Many of the happenings were of world-wide note and of such a nature that 'none of the students in the Elmwood School had any recollections of like occurrences. First and overshadowing all others in importance is the fact that: Our country is at war. It is true that war was declared last April before school was out, but the seriousness of it had not been brought home to us then. We were brought to a keen realization of it, however, when the selective draft took our science teacher, B. H. Crandall. away to the cantonment at Camp Dodge, at the very opening of the school last September. Miss Frieda Korth, a former graduate of E.. H. S. and of the U. of I., was secured as a teacher in the High School. Early in September the upper classmen tendered a reception to the entering students and to the new members of the faculty. The teachers aided in securing subscriptions to the Second Liberty Loan. The First of October, school was dismissed to attend the Elmwood Horseshow and FaIl,FestivaI. December 7-Elmwoodj High basketball team defeats Can- ton High at Canton by a score of 34 to 33. 96 THE ULMUS january-Mary Westbay, a member of the Senior class, died at her home in Southport after a lingering illness. The Seniors and faculty attended the funeral in a body. Leonard Knox, Paul Sampson and Ralph Wiley leave school to enlist in the navy. January saw the deepest snow in yearsg all High School teachers returning from the Christmas vacation were snow- bound at different points and unable to reach Elmwood. The country pupils unable to attend until the roads were shoveled clear of the great banks of snow. Second semester began January 28th. Miss Frieda Korth married to Mr. Charles Apple and Ralph Kilpatrick, E. H. S. 'l3, took her place in the faculty. Coal shortage all over the country, many schools closed, but fortunately E. H. S. had enough fuel on hand to tide over the severe cold spell. February-Elmwood High dedicates a Service Flag to the soldiers and sailors. ' March I-Elmwood High makes a good showing at the State Basketball Tournament considering that Tidd, the star center, was out of the game with a badly sprained back. March-E. H. S. easily wins the County Tournament. On account of war conditions, all the track meets are called off. April 6-The Third Liberty Loan of S3,000,00U,000 called for by the Government. Superintendent Condit. one of the campaign managers for Elmwood Township, that took us over the top and secured the Honor Flag for having obtained our quota the first in the county. Twenty-seven E. H. S. boys are excused from school to work on the farms and help feed the armies of the allies. April l-Ralph Kilpatrick, our popular coach and teacher, called to the colors and goes to Fort Dupont, Delaware. April I7-German teaching is stopped in the Elmwood School, Superintendent Condit and the Board of Education having arranged for that move earlier in the year, but allowing the classes to finish a required amount before discontinuing the subject.

Advertising in this book must bring good results or the mer- chants would not contribute again and again, so in our opinion these advertisements following should receive more attention than is usually accorded them. We urge you to read this section of advertising very care- fully. The firms represented in this book are loyal backers of the Elmwood High School and are reliable as well, there- fore let us partonize them.
