been very successful in past years and again

public. This year the high cost of labor
.I ? and material has made the printing of the
1 book a difficult problem, but due to the sub-
stantial backing of the citizens of Elmwood
and surrounding country, we are able to co,n-
tinue the yearly publication of the book. -
We may have fallen short in our endeavor
to make this "ULMUS" a bearer of good
cheer and the true Elmwood spirit, but- we
have done our best and beg you to be con-

Good readers all, we wish you well,
And so we give you greetingzb
We hope this book in you'll compel
An interest more than fleeting.
Full many topics here you'll find.
Each treated with some care,
And pictures of many a different kind.
And gems of humor rare.
Slams and roasts and photographs,
And jokes in prose and rhymes,
Some that only make you laugh
When you read between the lines.
Every class is represented
From Seniors to Freshmen dear,
And their joy will be augmented
When they read what's written here
We've done our best to please you all,
Our faults please overlook:
We hope our virtues you'll recall,
And we hope you'll like our Book!

Seven little tots of the class which entered the Elmwood High School-in I908 have trudged
through the long' years to form the nucleus of the now brilliant graduating class of I920. They
were Ralph Bacher, Bruce Mullen, Helen Lindzey, Ferne Threw, jennevieve Riner, Anna Grumley
and Frances McCarty, also lona Lyons and Elliott Burt who stuck by us nearly to the finish.
ln the grades we made a considerable increase in our number. adding Birdella Harkness,
Mona Ristine, Adrienne Herbert, Howard Carter, Harley Green, and Elsie Dalton, the last one
leaving our class to be joined in the Holy Bondsof Matrimony. Later we added john Nickerson
and Sebastion Colombo. ln the grades we were always vieing with one another for the desirable
first place, thus keeping our marks up to the standard in the eyes of the teacher.
At the end of the year of l9l 5 we were looking forward with hope and expectation of entering
that new life of High School work. ln September l9l6 we hurried to school to secure suitable
seats, and we found these added to our class, Hazel Gutshall, Ruth Thatcher, Gladys Archibald,
Elva Peters, Verna Miles, Alta Cusack, Mary Dwyer, Viola Schulthes. Viola Manock, Alta
Johnson, Marianne Clinch, Mary Cusack, Owen Lindzey, George Gutshall, Harry Stalter, Louis
Stalter, Forrest Reed, Dean Threw, Paul Hammond, Roy Keeling, Harvey Van Sickle, Rachel
Holt and Mildred Higgins. Q
One night after school during our Freshman year, we went to the woods with Miss Erlbacher
and Miss McElwain as chaperons. We played games and roasted weiners. Gerald jarman,
moving from South Dakota, joined our class during our Sophomore year. During this year the
Botany class under instructions of Miss Millizen, went to the woods on observation work. On
Hallowe'en we were entertained by lona Lyons. Games were played and a light lunch was
served, after which we departed for home wishing that Hallowe'en would soon return again.
ln our Junior year, Anna Trowbridge, coming from Williamsfield, joined our number., April
25th of this year we delightfully entertained the class of 1919 and the faculty at a reception.
A comedy, "A Case Against Casey" was presented. Games and dancing furnished amusement
for the rest of the evening, after which a light lunch of sandwiches, ice cream, cake and coffee was
served. All departed at a late hour, declaring they had enjoyed the evening and wishing the
juniors could entertain them again. W
Our Senior year has been a busy one. Doris Shively, returning from New York, again
entered E. H. S. as a Senior. We presented our first class play "A Little Clodhoppern on january
26th and our second one "Miss Somebody Else" May l3th, both with considerable success. All
the members of the class have worked hard, selling pop-corn balls at the Basket Ball Games, in
order to start a fund for the completion of our Year Book. Now we are leaving High School and
we are all happy that we have reached the goal for which we worked four hard years.

Qthitagn Sunhap iberalh-examiner
By GLADYS P. ARCHIBALD, Star Reporter
DISTINGUISHED looking gentleman approached the ticket office of the -Thunder
Bolt Rocket Trans Eaxathal-Mars Passenger Co. He applied for a ticket and was request-
ed by the ticket agent to produce his passport, photograph, finger print sand Bertillion
measurements. After a close inspection of these identification diacritical marks the ticket
woman immediately emitted a shrill scream of delight for by reason of these tokens she recog-
nized her old friend and classmate, Louis Ralph Stalter, of E. H. S. '20 fame, and after a minute
inspection he in turn was surprised to behold Mary Ellen Cusack somewhat disguised by the
white caps and wings of the elaborate uniform of Thunder Bolt Co. 1
After disengaging himself from the affectionate embrace of the ticketwoman he procured
his ticket. Having an hour to spend he walked listlessly over to an queer looking apparatus
projecting from the center of the building. dropped a twenty dollar gold piece into the receiver
and immediately obtained a clear view of Mars, the next station. Suddenly he became in-
tensely interested for he beheld Ora Dean Threw leading out one of the queer Martian ducks
to water while his wife, Marianne leaned over the back yard fence and talked to her near neigh-
bor, Howard Levi Carter and wife, formerly Mona Grace Ristine, who were sojourning upon
the planet instead of spending their vacation in Florida.
Suddenly the party beganito gesticulate wildly and ran down the edge of the canal Du Nord
where an overturned boat appeared in mid-stream. surrounded by a group of stuggling young
people. It appeared that the party composed of Alta johnson, Adrienne Herbert,- Frances
McCarty, Anna Trowbridge, Mary Dwyer, Forrest Reed, Harry Stalter, George Gutshall,
Owen Lindzey, and Harvey Van Sickle, had been taking a pleasure sail upon the canal when the
little pomeranian poodle dog belonging to Mary Dwyer was accidentally stuck with a pin and
leaped overboard. Mr. Van Sickle, in trying to rescue the dog, upset the boat and plunged the
group into the water. As the waster was only about a foot deep the gentlemen successfully
succeeded in rescuing the ladies. just at this interval the whistle blew and Mr. Stalter went out
and entered the Rocket for his trip to Mars. ,
Within the Rocket the conductress, Ferne Threw flew around assigning staterooms to the
various passengers, observing her to be otherwise engaged, our Louis stepped up to the registra-
tion ledger and began to search for familiar names. Almost the first name which met his eye
was as follows, dated Oct. l, l940: Roy Keeling, B. V. D., Prof of music and art, Chicago, Ill.:
other familiar names scattered through the book were: Hartley Green, coach of athletics, Harvard
College. Mass.: Miss Anna C-rumley, Coloratura Soprano, Paris, France: Miss Helen Lindzey,
Police Matron, Peoria, Ill.: Gerald Jarman, D. P., horse doctor, Yates City, lll.: Rachel Holt,
cashier, Riner 6: Harkness Cafe and Dance Hall, Maquon, Ill.: Miss Doris Shively, dancer,
Sutcliff Troupe, formerly Ziegfield Follies, New York City, N. Y.: Miss Verna Miles, steno-
grapher, Armour Br Co. Packing House, Sioux City, lowa, etc.
A touch upon the arm recalled his attention to the present and the waitress, Mildred Higgins,
informed him that lunch would be served in the cafe before the departure. So he repaired to
the place in question and prepared to eat. He found that all the food was served canned with
the name and trade mark of Hazel Gutshall stamped upon each can. He inquired of the waitress
and found that all the food upon the rocket was purchased of this same famous pure food special-
ist. Two Deaconesses sitting at another table seemed to have trouble in opening their food
cans and so Mr. Stalter assisted them. He inquired their names and found that they were
Sisters Elva and Ruth, from Rome, Italy, going to Mars as missionaries.
After luncheon the Rocket was stripped of extras so that its speed would not be impeded
when it was shot upon its journey. Finally the pilot, Ralph S. Bacher, climbed aboard and
took his station beside a smalliwindow in the stern of the compartment. He leisurely lighted a
cigarette and then glanced through the window at Bruce Mullen, the starter, who was lounging
beside the Rocket smoking a corn-cob pipe. Their glances met, each nodded slightly and then
the pilot opened his lips and emitted three short puffs of smoke. At this signal the starter re-
moved his pipe from his mouth and knocked the burning coals into the powder receptacle of the
fuse. He took to his heels. With a sizz and a bang the rocket leaped into the air and disap-
peared from view. .

joyous group of school-mates,
Used to work and fun. h
Never shirk a duty-no not one.
ln all school activities,
Of them we are sure
Ready to always do their parts, '
Staunchly and with all their hearts.
No more true conception could be given of the juniors. A splendid class-it may be small
in number but in brains-! There are only seventeen of us, ten girls and seven boys, but we
don't need anyimore, for it isn't the number that counts, it's what they can do. We have among
our seventeen, the best musicians, speakers, and athletes in the school.
We came into old E. H. S. in September, l9l 7. as Freshmen. Tradition has it that 'we were
as green as every other class that ever entered high school but we know better. We organized
and chose purple and white as our class colors and "Labor Omnia V incit" as our motto. Our class
Hiocers are: -
President-Mabel Worley. Secretary-Hurff Flanegin.
Vice-president-Ruth French. Treasurer-Myrta Martin.
The one remarkable occurence during our Freshman year was the enlistment of two of ,our
boys in the navy. Then we were Sophomores. The usual "Soph" who looks at the Freshmen
thus, "Huh-such green Freshies. l know l never acted that way. l'll stroll down the hall
and let them pattern after me for l know l act just like that Senior over there."
Arid now we're Juniors. The school could not exist without us. Everyone is familiar with
our innumerable good deeds, our few shortcomings and wherever we go one can hear:
Best and then some

Afeclion-Link between M-- and D--
Boy-Cause of excitement in Elmwood.
Carfl-What the Freshmen usually say.
Elmwood-The best town on the map.
Feasl-Pickles, doughnuts, ice cream, pota-
Gum-Mouth mover -
Happiness-The state into which we enter
It-Seniors as they see themselves.
J akes-Fresh men.
Language-That which is used only in class.
Money-Nothing stirring. 1
Novel-Found under beds and in hammocks.
Onions-Plants that make people strong.
Pony-Used in Latin.
Quiz'-Favorite of the faculty.
Reports-lnvitations to junior reception.
Talking-Never heard in the assembly.

"Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die."
So quoted the most honorable Sophomores representing the Class of '22, as they looked
for their respective seats on a certain September morn. '
. However, even as beginners in school we started successfully from the first and grew more
successful as time progressed. Russel Remmele, Earl Schenck, Florence Threw, Roland Hitch-
cock, Georgia White, and Florence Phares, they who have clung together through the many
grades are still classmates. Arthur Dragoo, Edwin Watkins, Daniel Tully, Everett Redding,
Bernard Mullen, Cecil Holt, Marie Hafner, Lawrence Harkness, and Ruby Corbett, also Walter
Redding and Margaret Kilpatrick 'and Leon Carter joined the class and marched .along fast and
steadily to the top, reaching the goal of the grades and are now on their sscondi milestone of
their high school career. Those who did not start with the first grade but who came in later
are: Faye Hoyt, who started in this school but later moved away. She soon returned and has
been with us ever since. Harry McDonald, Francis Gibbs and Mary Whitney entered in the
third grade while Dale Green entered in the Fifth grade and Edith Jarman in the eighth.
Last year Erma McKinty, Grace Wickwire. Mabel Archibald, Herman Shelton and Robert
Wasson came in from the country, also Ruth Caldwell from jacksonville. This year Kathryn
Callister joined our class, coming from Washington. Nila Snyder moved to Low Point and
several others have gone but are not forgotten. We have worked with 'fpep" and interest to
put our class first on the list.
During our Freshman year we organized, Harry McDonald being elected President: Leon
Carter, Vice-president: and Dale Green, Secretary-Treasurer. . - '
The "flu" was very bad last year and for this reason the school was closed for some time.
Programs were planned to be given but owing to the lack of time. the plans were not carried out.
But now we do not look on the Elmwood High as mere Freshmen, but as Sophomores.
Really our long hoped for goal of being Juniors is drawing nigh. As Sophomores, we leave our
timid ways of Freshmen and enter on the second chapter of our career.
An important event was the Sophomore party which was held on Hallowe'eni, at Hepton-
stall's hall. Games and dancing were the chief amusements of the evening and a dainty lunch
was served. All present declared that they had a very good time.
Three of the members, Leon Carter, Harry McDonald and Lawrence Harkness, proved them-
selves indispensible members of the basketball squad and several of the class members belong to
the Girls' Glee Club.
ln times past this class has proven itself worthy of being mentioned in many programs and
other events. Now let us do all we can to stick together and make it one of the largest graduat-
ing classes ever turned out of the Elmwood High in the year l922.

A reception was given by the upper classes on October Znd. to welcome the new teachers and
the Freshman Class to Elmwood High School. The Freshmen gave a very interesting program
on February 23. Willard Deford and William Schenck acted out a dialogue, Cornelius Kemp
spoke on the possible candidates for president. A quartette of Freshmen girls sang and the Latin
l, 'class sang some Latin songs. and so
As Freshmen we have stood the test,
And every deed has been our best,
But we will show the same good will.

Our doctor is a broad shouldered man with small, sharp eyes, a thin nose. but without the
pointed beard which many doctors wear. He has a fiery temper when provoked but a kind and
gentle enough disposition to win over frightened little children easily. He is called by his first
name by those who think they are intimate with him, "Doctor" by those he has helped and "Pills"
by some of his old schoolmates. One day at his office the telephone rang and an excited man
asked him to come at once, because their little girl had spasmodic croup, The doctor grabbed
his two small cases and jumped into his car. A moving streak like lightening left town and ten
minutes later the doctor arrived, at a house ten miles out of town, in time to save the little girl.

foreigners out into perfectly good American citizens. Owen Lindzey, the strong man, turned the
crank. First came an Irishwoman fMyrta Martinl who went through the process becoming a
sweet little American fMary Louise Pitneyj. Then came two Italians fElora Burt and Mary
Dwyer? who panned out as American girls fErma McKinty and Mary Demickj. Next came some
Bolshevists fGeorge Gutshall and, Luty Brandenburgl who became the Goddess of Liberty fElva
WolfordJ and Uncle Sam fRussel Remmelej. Next came Holland representatives fRobert Wasson
and Margaret Seltzerl and at last, the Kaiser fDean Threwj but as it was known, his case was
hopeless. and so he came out as Satan fHarley Greenl.
The high school has had also, its own programs, which were held in the assembly. The
classes took turns, each class having a week of its own and giving two programs during that week.
Orations, readings, solos, and school songs were given. also jokes and punning. One day some
of the Seniors gave a debate: "Resolved that the dish-rag is mightier than the hoe," very
linely worked out. Three judges gave their decisions. One showed decidedprejudice in favor
of the dish-rag, another was strongly in favor of the hoe, while the third we suspect must have
been bought off, for he said it all depended on whomever was behind the dish-rag or the hoe in
order to decide which was mightier.

Miss Evelyn Humphreys, the present instructor, is a graduate of the Elmwood High School. I9I4
and also of the University of Kansas. She takes a keen interest in her worl: and the progress of
Sewing is taught twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays and lasts one period. The time is
short but many useful things have been made by the girls of the grades and high school. It is a
study that almost every girl will have use for and should take while she has a chance. The girls
of the upper grades also take sewing. Q
The following people take sewing in the high school this year: Margaret Ekstrand. Irma
Caldwell, Pearl Clinch, Lavonne Adams, Edith Jarman, Erma McKinty, Mabel Archibald, Faye
Hoyt. Kathryn Callister, Ruth Caldwell, Frances Gibbs. Ruth French, Ruth Thatcher, Frances

lt would be a splendid thing for our High School if the Domestic Science Course were made
complete and cooking added to the Course. Why not do this next year?

Captain Green, although very slight,
Always had plenty ofvim, vigor and fight.
He arched the ball high-while playing
And the way it dropped through, he must have been praying
Here's Bruce Mullen, the all district center,
Who at the County Tourney was also a getter.
He played the same game the whole season long,
And for years to come will the Alumni team be strong.
This is old Van Sickle, another vet,
A better guard no team could get.
He stopped them as they came, both big and small,
And you bet he never quit until he got the ball.
It's Carter, the forward, you can tell by his face
He'll be fighting as hard at the end of the race.
He's true to the team of the Orange and Black
And we are glad to know that next year he'll be back.
Here's little Mac, the midget guard,
Who Van Sickle liked to have as his pard.
For they would fight together to keep the ball
Always safe at the other end of the hall.
Gerald Jarman, another guard,
Played many games and played them hard.
With E. H. team it's his last season,
For he is a Senior and that is the reason. Y
Here's another sub. guard, Dean Threw, you know,
Who on Wednesday nights took in the picture show.
This one reason it's plain to be seen
Kept our little Dean off the first team.
This is Dean Condit, called jackson, l think.
As a second center had theni all on the blink:
And as a basket shooter he is A-No. l,
And next year will make them all go sone.

CAPT. GREEN I H. FLANEGIN CARTER
B. MULLEN L. HARKNESS VAN SICKLE
G. JARMAN H. STALTER MAC DONALD
D. THREW O. LINDZEY CONDIT '
H. Green :Captaim--Finished his basket ball career this year. with four years work on the
E. C. H. S. squad and one year captaincy to his credit. He is acknowledged as one of the fastest
forwards on the team. Always there with the same fighting spirit in every game.
L. Carter-Carter was one of the men left from last year's squad and appeared at his old
position of forward again this season. He is an aggressive player and is on the job when it comes
to breaking up plays and helping out on team work. His ability as a player has won him many
honors and he will be one of the mainstays of the team next year.
B. Mullen-One of the best centers in the district, being an all-star in two tournaments.
He was one of the livest players of the team and will be missed at his old position next year.
He was high point man on the team this season. He could shoot baskets from any angle on the
floor and at the same time keep from being covered.
G. Jarman--ls another man who will be missed next year. He played most of the season at
guard position. Playing two years with the team. He was a consistent player and was respons-
ible for much of the defensive play.
H. Van Sickle-When the coach issues a call for basket ball men next year. he will find that
he has missing the man that has filled the right guard position for the past four years. This man
is Van. His scrap and pep were the means of putting new life into the team on more than one
H. MacDonald-Little lVlac's size seldom proved a handicap but rather an aid in dodging.
His position was at guard, part of the time playing at forward. He was not one of the grangdstand
type and can always be relied upon to do his best in every game, having two more years to play
D. Threw-Playing with the squad for two seasons this being his last year in which he
played in several games this year. Demonstrating his worth and ability by stepping in when
needed and playing a creditable game at guard.
I... Harkness--"Gene" was a good forward and showed up well when he had a chance. He
showed his ability as a basket ball player in the Altona game. He has two more years to show
his good work.
D. Conclit-Playing as a substitute for center, this season. His height enabled him to out
jump his opponent. He has one more year to play and should develope into a real basket shooter.
H. Flanegin-Playing a position of forward could be relied upon to do his best when needed.
He has a good eye on long shots and should play with the team next season. He has one more
year to play. "

lt happened one dreary night last fall
When Elmwood went to Canton to play basketball.
On the return trip home, southwest of town
That a car carrying a load of players broke clown.
A tire was flat and the patches wouldn't set, A
And if something hadn't happened they'd have been there yet,
But another car soon stopped by their side
And the driver quite kindly asked them to ride.
All went well until a mile from town
When the face of the driver began to frown,
For he noticed as he gave the steering wheel a whirl
That one of the players had an arm around his girl.
The big car stopped with a screech of brakes
And the driver said, "Get out. you jalces,
Right here is where you get set down."
So the boys walked the rest of the way to town.

there were forty or fifty pupils enrolled in a three-year course, and the faculty consisted of the
principal and one assistant. Let us look at our school to-day with a complete four-year course
and a faculty consisting of seven splendid teachers and an enrollment of over one-hundred-twenty
students. During this time there have been added a library. sewing course, athletics, music,
bookkeeping, typewriting, and many more studies.
E. H. S. is a school that deserves a great deal of credit. especially in athletics, music, and
literary events. She has won many medals and cups, and we hope she will continue in doing so,
but what we are lacking, at the present time, is a room for gymnasium which might be used for
basket ball and other purposes.
Another benefit which should be added to our school is a good library. Students, especially
need a good library for reference work. A school the size of ours, should afford a much better
library than we have.. .
Now since we have added sewing to our school, why not add cooking? This is something
every girl should know how to do. Many schools have cooking and think it a great benefit to
their school: also manual training for the boys. They learn to make many useful and ornamental
things and this would be both interesting and profitable to them. This would be beneficial to all.
A lunch room would be another help to our school. When we consider that a great per cent
of the pupils are from rural districts, what a fine thing it would be if they could have a place in
the building or near by, where they could buy a hot lunch at noon hour.
What has become of our high school orchestra? Do we mean to let it be a thing of the past?
A few years ago, we had a fine one, but since that time some of the musicians have graduated
from old E.. H. S. and the orchestra became a thing of the past. -There is plenty of talent in our
school for a good orchestra that should furnish music when we have class plays and school enter-
Let each one be a booster,
Not have things as we useter.
But have a school that's up-to-date-
Like other schools at any rate.

Great for washing necks and ears:
Good for sprinkling dusty pavements,
lndispensible for piers,
just the thing for rains and rivers,
Swell for making tea and ink.
Fine for putting under bridges,
Butiits simply h-- to drink!

Running over a new song.
Smothering a laugh.
Setting fire to a heart.
Murdering the English Language.

THE ULMUS 5
Qilmhauuh Zlaigb, Jfaretnzll
As the class of Nineteen Twenty
Bids farewell to Elmwood High,
As we gaze into the future ,
With youth's shining hopeful eye, W
Then we think of our successes,
And perhaps of failures too, X
And all days both sad and merry
We as students have passed throughf
How we marched as jolly Freshmen. 5
Proudly boasting unto all. i
"Never has a class so brilliant 3
Entered this scholastic hall." J
Then our Freshmen garments vanished,
Sophomores we now became. '
When we passed the juniors' portals, 5
-Greater, grander was our fame. ,
Now we're grave and reverend Seniors
And we have our troubles too: W
Yet the joys outweigh the troubles.
Juniors. we confess to you. W
Tho not the glorious Senior Class j
We dreamed some day we'd be, i
Yet Brimfielcl boys will think of us 1
' Wherrnext year's team they see.
And county teams will smile next yeair
To know from Green they're free. J
Yet next year's class is on the job, Q
And as we go our way
We hope in next year's contests youfll
Be victors in the fray. i
And now along the last farewell.
Our Alma Mater dear,
Our principal, and teachers too,
,Who've taught and trained us here.
Good-bye to Mr. HuHington's f
Delightful? Physics Room. W
And to Assembly Hall where we 1
Have sunshine shared and glooml
The days are past, our High School days
Of clear and dismal weather, W
And we who part as classmates now.
Have shared them all together. i
We leave them all with fond regrets
And in the bye and bye f
Our thoughts will oft come back to you
Beloved Elmwood High. '
M. E. C.-'20
At last I am finished and ready to greet you. I
certainly have had a very hard time getting here. You
know they thought at first that it would be impossible
to have me in l920 because of high prices. But along
the last of February the Senior Class had ea meeting
and decided to get me out. I realize that I have a lot
of faults. In fact the editor often tells me about my
peculiarities which you no doubt will notice. Yet, when
expressing your opinion of me, please consider that the
people that worked on me had to hurry which accounts
for most of my mistakes.
In spite of all these things, I am trying to look
pleasant and I hope that I will receive one broad smile
Everyone in the place has helped to make me a
success and I am very grateful to them all, without
whom I could not exist. It took Mr. Condit to notice
mistakes no ordinary man could find. In fact every
member of the faculty has just been great.
Hoping I bring you much pleasure and fond recollec-
tions, I am,
THE I920 ULMUS
