Trunks were opened, books and letters looked over, and they were about to give up because they found nothing of interest, when a small square box with a very large horn on top of it caught their eye. Beside it lay a pile of Fiat black disks which looked very much like modern phonograph records. After tinkering with it for a while and cleaning the thick coat of dust and the very pretty designs made by spiders from the box, they had it in working order. They placed a disk on the plate and wound the motor, then listened. This is what they heard. Away back in the year 1909 a class of the prettiest six-year-olds that anyone ever saw began their career in the primary department of the lilmwood public schools. In this class the best-remembered pupils were Ruth XVooton, Mabel Wforley, Hurff Flanegan, Roma Shively, Ralph XYiley, Pauline Gibbs, Lester Holt and Myrta Martin, and there were a great many more. Through the lower grades additions and suhtractions were made, but still those mentioned remained a group intact. In the third year Paul Sampson joined us. and in the fourth Dean Condit became one of us. Margaret Sporrer joined us in the seventh, and Ruth French joined us as Roma Shively left us in the eighth. On entering High School we were glad to receive Fred Schlots, Ralph McK0wn, Albert XVolford, Clare Bagg, lfdna Clark, Ruby XVasson. Chester Miles and Eva McMullen. During this year l"aul Sampson and Ralph XYiley enlisted in the navy. XVe were very active and kept things going all the time. E. H. S. could never have existed without us. Chester left to go to Bradley in the Freshman year, but he returned this year to graduate with the old class. Pauline went to Moline in january, where she will finish in june. Hurff will graduate in Peoria. Persons dropped out of the class until now we have just thirteen-our lucky number. This may seem a small quantity, but it is quality. not quantity, that counts. Our motto is: "Labor omnia vinciti' tLabor conquers all thingsj. Our Hower is the white rose, and our colors, purple and white. The members of our class are as follows: Mabel XN'orley, Ruth XYooton. Ruth French, Ruby XVasson, Edna Clark, Margaret Sporrer. Myrta Martin, Dean Condit, Albert XVolford, Clare Bagg, Fred Schlots, Ralph McKown and Chester Miles. XVe are graduates now and we are sorry to leave our Alma Mater and our Alma Mater is sorry to have us leave, too. we know. NYe hope that the classes who follow us are true blue and make their mark for old E. H. S. as we have before them. Good-bye. XVith this the record ended, and one of the boys breathed in awe-inspired tones: "Oh, say, that's grandma's class history when she was a Senior in Elmwood High 'way back in l9.2I."

C., had been ailing in health since 1936 when he was reappointed to the position. He planned and prepared for a vacation. He decided on a tour through the continents of the eastern hemisphere. He left Baltimore aboard the Trivoli liner june I2 and landed at Cork, Ireland. Below is an account of his travels. From the beautiful and interesting city of Cork he went to the quiet capital of France, Paris. XX'hile at one of the numerous Parisian theaters his heart fairly leaped with gladness, for he viewed one of his old E. H. S. associates, Ruby, on the screen in the picture, "The Heart's Temptation." Anxious to learn something about her, he went to the manager. and was very pleased when he found an account of how she had become a star. One day. while Mary l'ickford's company was on location. Mary saw Ruby, and, seeing her wonderful facial expressions, gave her a chance to play a comedy act in one of the pictures. And so, step by step, she had reached the goal to which so many have aspired. XVhile dining at one of the very exclusive cafes he met Myrta Martin, who was enjoying life in Paris on money she had received from a patented idea on "How to Reduce." In his chat with her he learned that she, having tried every idea and material she could find to reduce, and each failing in its turn, she finally found one of her own which worked successfully. After her own success with the idea, she thought that it might help someone else, so she had had it patented. Clare found it very hard not to fall in love with her right then. but he thought of his pledge which he had taken while in school, in which he promised never to let any woman engage herself to him. From Paris he went to the far-famed town of Heidelberg, Germany, and. being very much interested in education, visited the college there, where he learned that Ruth French was professor of languages. Un questioning her he found that she had begun her teaching in Edwards, Ill., and, after holding this position for two terms, had been employed at XVellesley. From there, through the influence of a rich uncle, she had received her present position. Traveling from Heidelberg through most of the important cities of Russia. Turkey and Persia, he finally stopped in Calcutta, India, for a few days' rest. At the opera there he was delighted to find another of his classmates, Margaret Sporrer, singing the leading role in "Hitchy Koo." After the show Clare went to her dressing-room and had a long talk with her. He found that she had begun her career by singing in a Chautauqua company. Ziegtield of the Follies having heard of her. gave her a contract for a part in a chorus in his show. From this she was offered the position as leading vocalist in the play, 'tHitchy- Koo." Mr. Bagg went directly from India to Africa. and on his tour through the western part of the continent he noticed in the Bingerville Bugle, one of the leading African newspapers, that Edna Clark was proprietress of one of IlillllllllIlllllllIlIllllllllllvllllllllllillllllIIlIllIIIll1IliItIIIIliII.IIllllllilllllllllltllllilll mll lllllill'l1'llht ll.llll.lll'llll:ll'tiilluhll il.Ii'llllllllIllllllllltllilllll Ilill1ll'IlJIliIllIlilIillllillIll1HillllllllllHII'li!IllltHt'I li.lllllflflllllliilliltiiillllllll 20 T H E U L M U S llllllllllll2IlallIIlillIH3llllIllllllllIlllllllllllllllllllIIIIIilIllI5II1llllllllllIllIllllIlllllllllillllllllllllilllllllllllllIllIIIllllIlllllllllIillIllIllIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllIll!IIlllllIIIIllIllllllllIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllilllllllllllllllllIllIllIIllllllIllllIlllllIl!l!lll' the largest beauty parlors in Timbuctoo. Following thatx item was an account of her life up to that time. She found that, after entering a beauty contest offered by the Elmwood Gazette, she would be successful as an instructor of beauty and decided to settle in the progressive town of Timbuctoo. On the society page of the paper he found that Chester Miles was chief organizer of the Sophists Club in Kangamba, which is in the southern part of the continent. It appeared that Chester's social life in the Sophists Club at Bradley influenced him to organize other clubs of the same sort. Their suc- cess in America led him to begin his action in Africa. As Clare's health had greatly improved, he decided to return to America, but before taking up his former position he would tour the United States. Upon arriving in New York he put in a call to his old home in Trivoli. He recognized in the voice of the operator still another of his old classmates, Ruth lVooton, who was chief toll operator in the telephone exchange of New York City. She had held a position as operator in Elmwood for a number of years, and while on a sightseeing trip was offered a position as toll operator in New York. She had, through her devotion to her work, reached the com- manding position as chief toll operator. On the train en route to Trivoli he noticed in the New York Times, in big headlines, an announcement of the biggest event of the season-an auto race between the two speed demons, Ralph De Palma, with his high-powered car, and Albert Wiolford, in his latest invention, the Ford, which runs on de- natured alcohol. Albert's racing career started on the three-mile square of Elmwood ,during the noon hour while he was still in school. On leaving school in IQ2I he decided to remodel his Ford to reach higher goals. In his first real race at the Peoria Implement Fair he ended in nothing flat. Encouraged by this first attempt, he accepted an invitation to a race to be held at Palm Beach, Fla. It was for this race that his name had appeared in the Times. XV hen the New York Central stopped at Cazenovia, Clare saw Dean Condit, who was dressed in the snappy uniform of a bus driver. calling, "Bus here. a jitneyf' He seemed to be satisfied with the position he had held since he graduated from E. H. S. Then later, just out of Elmwood, Mr. Bagg noticed a sign on a barn which read like this: "Orphans Home for Pigs, Cats and Other Strays.-Schlots 8: McKown." His memory wandered back to when they were in school, and he remembered that, Ralph and Fred had always been very kind-hearted and gentle to all animals. His final shock came when he was walking to his home from the train, wishing to surprise his parents. Passing the Stalter farm, he recognized im- mediately the musical voice of Mabel, who was then calling the chickens. When he talked to 'her he learned her sad, sad story. She had sacrificed all her brilliant musical career to help her husband in his farm duties. Oh. 'twas only a dream, and Mr. Clare felt himself being suddenly jerked about, and awoke to find his mother standing over him, as she said, "Clare, get out of there, your father has been calling you for the last hour." .nummuuullluuuulmulmunmnnlinluluiinunnisuuuunruuumumuummiumnummumulumnmus1:n1is1.:zli.a..i..asam.aa:zeizmmluluumsulumunrmuummnummmuuuluauumulm::nuulummn:luumuumnlnn 'T Qi: we love faults ir all the 'ith 5 m still. the betlenl the Cl' The still 6 T H E U L M U S 23 IliIll!IllIIlllllIIHIllllllIIllIIlHIIIIIIIllIIIIllllIIlllllllllllllllllIllIllIllIUIlIlllllllllllllllllIlllllllllllliIIllIIIillIIIIIIIllIlIHIEIllIlIlIIlllllIllllllllllllllllIIllIIIllIlIIllIIIlllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllIlllllIlllilllIlllllilHlllllllllllllllilll!Elllillllllilllllllllllii Eluniur Glass Iaistnrp President ............................................................

As one class moves on, another comes forward to take its place, so after three years of hard work we are preparing ourselves to take up the greatest responsibility of High School life-that of a Senior. During our career in the halls of E. H. S. several of our members have left us to go to other schools, and our ranks have been strengthened by others, making our number at the present time thirty. Early in the fall Lawrence Harkness was chosen vice-president, succeeding Leon Carter, who left us to go to Galesburg, but returned for the second term. Dale Green's place as secretary-treasurer was taken by Daniel Tully. Nearly all of the basketball squad was composed of juniors this year, and for the next we are expecting even greater results from them. The class of ,22 has furnished a full quota recruits in other fields as well as athletics. You will see their names in Boys' and Girls' Glee clubs, High School Orchestra, Declamation and Music. It has always been our desire to do our best to uphold the standard of E. C. H. S. Let us never fail in this one small requirement of the good student. Though, "as others see usf' we may be just an average class, we see "oursen" as first in excellence and second to none in effort and endurance. lN'e know- There are no beaten paths to glory's height, Each for himself must cleave a path aloneg Smooth is the way to ease and calm delight, And soft the road sloth chooseth for his owng O, then with strong heart let him still abide, For rugged is the roadway to renown, Nor may he hope to gain the envied crown Till he hath thrust the looming rocks aside. R. L. S., ,22. , HONORS TO ELMWOOD HIGH In April Superintendent Condit received word from Professor H. A. Hol- lister, High School visitor from the University of Illinois, that our High School had been placed on the list of accredited schools of the North Central Asso- ciation of Colleges and Secondary Schools. This is a high honor and one that the student body appreciates. It places our school in the selected list of approved schools, and the students in the Elmwood Community High School should see to it that the high standard that we have reached is maintained. lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllIIlllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllIilIIIIIllllllllllllllllllllllilllllllIlflllIIIllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllIllllllllllllllllllllllIIIllIllllIlIIIIlIIHIIIlllllllIIlIllIIIIII1IIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllllllllliillllllllllIflllIlllllllllllllllllllllllllll Q 50 A 16 3 "- L SOPHGMORFS n cnulcl know that me Voulfl N XV C HTC.

That's what we are. And although none may be a star, Yet we all do our level best ' In sports, studies and all the rest. So say the gallant class of '23, Several members of this notable class have been together since 191 1, when we entered the Elmwood School for the first time. Others were added as we came upward, until at last a class of nineteen graduated from the eighth grade. Of this number there are left in the class now: Freda Bohrer, Della Brown, Irma Caldwell, Mary Demick, Lucille Flint, Elsie Manual, Margaret Seltzer, Erline Wleeks, john Cullings, NValter Dalton, Millard Day, Willard DeFord, Cornelius Kemp, VVilliam Schenck, Harry Stotler and VV illiam Jaques. Of those that came in from the country last year there are left with us Pearl Clinch, Kathryn Cusack, Margaret Ekstrand, Leah Maher, Elva W'ol- ford, Floyd Brown, Cecil Coon, Everett Epley, Paul Miles, Robert Myers, Lester Turl. john Vohland and Harold VVhitten. This year we were joined by Doris Colvin and Dorothea Young. The first of January Cecil Holt joined the class, making a total of thirty-two. In September, 1919, we entered Elmwood High School and a few weeks later were given a reception by the upper-classmen. VVe first entered the halls of fame as a class on February 23, 1920, when we gave a program for the High School. During our Freshman year we organized, with NVilliam Schenck, president 5 Harry Statler, vice-president, Earline VVeeks, secretary, and Millard Day, treas- urer. Our class has one or more representatives in the Girls' Glee Club, Girls' Quartet, Orchestra, Boys' Glee Club, in the musical and, literary contests and in baseball, basketball and track teams. So while we may not have many rep- resentatives in any one thing, yet we are represented in nearly everything. During the week of February 21-25 we gave three programs which con- sisted of various readings, a number of jokes by Peal CVVillardi DeFordj and Ace Q Harold llfhittenj and a number of questions and answers about George VVashington. Good-bye, until we meet again some day, And so as Sophomores we wish to say VV hen we will be advanced a step, L XV here we hope to maintain our "rep."

One by one we came to school and very quietly entered the assembly and sat down in the first seats we came to. lVe did not have recitations that day, but enrolled our names and subjects. Those coming from the eighth grade were: Ruth Eslinger. Edith Worley, Minerva Carlson, Pauline jarmen, Lorena Fleisher, Ruth Shively, Louise Macy, Agnes Kelly, Lela Murphy, Nina Threw, Jeanette Coolidge, Myrtle Flickenger, Vernon XVinn, George Fleisher, Lyle Faggote and john Holt. Those joining us from the country were: Etta Vohland, Opal Lindzey, Iona Rambo, Harold Oakes, Keonard Wlindish, Chester and Carl Patton and -lessie French. Two of our members left us-Nellie Gibbs, who moved to lNilmette, Illinois, and Everett Dawson, an Oak Hill boy, who moved to North Dakota. On February I3 we gave a farewell party in honor of these two. Our career as Freshmen has been full of fun and good times, also some hard work, but we shall always remember our first year in E. C. H. S. and cherish it as one of our happiest memories. So we did bid good-bye to our "baby days" and are planning for the years that are coming and when we .shall be Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. L. F., '24. The clock just struck It is midnight and past, I'm working very hard On a diflicult task. I have plenty of trouble lfVith no end in sight, I've been sitting here now About half the night. The book is mixed up I can't do it at all, I'm thoroughly discouraged And about to bawl. My eyelids are heavy, I have a poor vision, My head being empty Don't come to a decision. I start to think. Then some way or other, I think of someone. Most times my mother. I wish I could work When the sun is high, Then when darkness came I would not need sigh. I never could work late I can't do it now, How some can stand it I don't know how. I want to take to my bed, And there to stay, l1Vhen another night comes To do the same way. I think I'll get married To finish my strife, And I will live happy The rest of my life. C. F.

Living in an agricultural section, our school has felt for some years that it should offer a course that would directly benefit the boys who were wise enough to "stick to the farm." Last' summer the Board of Education, through the recommendation of Super- intendent C. C. Condit, decided to introduce a course in Agriculture. The State Vocational Department at Springfield was consulted, the necessary equipment and apparatus purchased and the southwest room in the basement was iitted up as a classroom and laboratory. Mr. H. VV. Stinson, a graduate of the University of Illinois, in Agriculture, was secured as teacher. The work is carried on under the Smith Hughes plan, whereby the State and 'Government pay one-half of the teacher's salary. The Agricultural course is divided into two divisions-the Animal Husbandry and Agronomy, both of which are under the supervision of Mr. Stinson. Although the course was new in the school, the boys have been taking great interest in the work and are making much progrss. The projects in the Animal Husbandry are mostly hogs, but two of the boys are testing dairy cattle. In the Agronomy class the boys raise some crop or take care of fruit trees for their project. The Agronomy class will carry out a class fruit project, a fertilizer com- pany having agreed to furnish the class with enough Arcadian sulphate of ammonia to fertilize five apple trees. There will be two plots of trees of five trees each, tive of which will be fertilized, and the other plot, a check plot, unfertilized. The class will keep a record of the results from the experiment, regarding the yield from the two plots, the time that elapses between the ap- plication of the sulphate and the noticeable effect upon the vegetation, the condition of the crop as to color, soundness and time of marketing as com- pares with the check plot. This experiment will be carried out at john Cullings' orchard. During the year both classes made several held trips in connection with their class work. The Agronomy class made trips to examine the different kinds of soil. They also went out to several fields and selected seed corn. The class visited John Cullings' project of about one hundred fruit trees, and worked part of the morning learning how to prune the trees. In january the class made a trip to Galesburg to the corn show held there. The first of the year the Animal Husbandry class studied the composition of feeds. The class made a held trip to observe silo filling. Next they took up the ageing of animals. In connection with this they went on a field trip, iiIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllIlIIlllllllllllllllllllllllIllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllll llllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllillllllllIllllllIIlllllIllllllIIlllllllIllllllllilllllllllllIIIIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllllll 1 7 7+ i .xx , s. gf 32 T H E U L M U S ilillllllllllllllllllllllllilllllllllllllllllllllillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllillllilillllllllllllllillllllllllllllllllllllliilllllillllilllllllIllilllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllillliliiiiillilllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllliiill and Mr. Stinson had them tell the age of horses, cattle and sheep. In con- nection with the study of swine, the class attended several of the hog sales held in the vicinity of Elmwood. just after Thanksgiving the class took up milk and cream testing and carried this on until about two weeks after Christ- mas vacation. N,In connection with the milk and cream testing, the class went through the Peoria Creamery Company. On the same day they went through the Wilson Packiixg Company and the Peoria Stock' Yards. About the niididle of January the class took up stock judging in preparation for the Northwestern'Illinois Vocational Aggultural Association stock-judging contest held in Galesburg February 12. In preparing for the judging contest, Mr. Stinson took the boys out to the farms of two or three of the prominent stock raisers around Elmwood, and on February II Mr. Stinson had picked five boys from the class to represent Elmwood in the judging contest. He took these boys to Truman's Horse Farm at Bushnell. Mr. Truman showed the boys some of his prize-winning animals and other things about the farm. The boys representing Elmwood in the contest were Cornelius Kemp, Fred Schlots, Floyd Brown, Everett Redding and Ralph McKown. Everett Redding and Ralph McKown were the alternates. The Knox County junior Farm Bureau furnished the food, and following the contest, the girls of the Galesburg Home Economics Department gave a banquet for the schools in the contest. Fol- lowing the banquet the Galesburg High School Orchestra furnished the enter- tainment, and the prizes were awarded as follows: Roseville, firstg Galesburg, second, and Pekin, third. Later in the year both classes took up rope splicing, which gave the boys much experience and help. In the Agriculture room the different splices and knots have been made and hung on the wall. Mr. Stinson has announced to the classes that the animal Illinois stock- judging contest will be held at Urbana next August. The winner in this contest represents Illinois at the International Stock Show. Wie hope that the boys will work and co-operate with Mr. Stinson and make an excellent showing in the contest. The boys in the Agronomy class are: John Cullings, Llye Fagotte, Carl Patton, Chester Patton, Paul Miles, Robert Myers, Vernon XV inn, VV alter Dalton and John Holt. In the Animal Husbandry class are: Lester Turl, Ensley Strapp, Fred Schlots, Cornelius Kemp, John Vohland, Floyd Brown, Cecil Coon, Robert VVasson, Ralph McKown and Everett Redding. F. E.

In music, in all its departments, the school possesses unusual ability. The chorus singing by the whole school, the Girls, Glee Club, the Boys' Glee Club, the Girls' Quartet and the High School Orchestra have furnished music for many different occasions, not only for the school but for the outside organization, such as the VVoman's Club, library plays, Memorial day service and lodge affairs. Margaret Kilpatrick has served as pianist for the High School Chorus. The man who has been director of the music in both the public and high schools for the past fifteen years is Professor VVilliam S. Campbell, of Peoria. The Girls' Glee Club was reorganized the first of the year, and sang on various occasions. On February 22 they presented "Love Pirates of Hawaii." The members of this club are: Dorothy Young, Edith XVorley, Ruth Shively, Roma Shively, Freda Bohrer, Della Brown, Florence Threw, Margaret Seltzer, Margaret Sporrer, Nina Threw, Lucille Flint, Irma Caldwell, Mary Demick, Lorena Fleisher, Lela Murphy, Agnes Kelly, Ruth Eslinger, Ruth French, Erma McKinty, Margaret Kilpatrick, Mary Vtfhitney, Ruby VVasson, Ruth Wooton, Faye Hoyt, Mabel VVorley and Edith Jarman.

Finally spirit was aroused and a floor was constructed. A meeting was called one night after school by Mr. Condit of all boys who were interested in basketball. The meet- ing was attended by every boy, even those who were physically unfit to play basketball, which showed a great amount of school spirit. Coach Hufiington called a meeting in November for the first practice, which consisted chiefly of a few lessons in calisthenics, led by Mr. Stinson. The first game was somewhat disastrous, but the local five never lost faith even if the results of the following games for the most part were a continu- ancf: of the first. The inferiority of the team to that of last year was chieiiy due to the fact that four of the last year's team were gone and the lack of experience in playing together made them about the same as raw material. The team did very well at the Galesburg tournament, which showed the benefit they derived from hard practice. VVe are expecting to see the fellows bring back the bacon next year, as all of them are expecting to remain in school. The following is a list of the games played: Dec. 3-Ell'l1WOOCl Lewiston, 18.

He is there with the pep ever ready to Fight, On guard or at forward with all his might. This is little Clare, his last name is Baggs, A trifle bow-legged, but never lags. He was a forward not of great fame, But always played a very good game. VVe call him Jiggs, but it is McDonald the guard He takes them all on and hits them hard. Mac has played regular just two seasons, He is gritty and fast, those are the reasons. Jacques here stands, we all know Percy, At forward and center showed no mercy. He played very hard, too hard in fact. For speed was the thing that he never lacked. The sturdy Oakes before you stands. - The guard who always pleased the fans. As this was tirst season in the game. Next year he will help bring E. C. H. S. fame. Dean Condit, the tall slender fellow, Never was known to show any yellow. He played at center and forward most. And could shoot baskets from either post. Here is Hitchcock, they all call him Bud, W'hcn he drops them through with an awful thud It is his first year in the game and at center, And next year sure will be a go-getter. Harkness, although not out all season, Had scarlet- fever and boils for the reason. VVhen he was in condition very hard he played, And was sure to see that baskets were made. To leave these out I would miss it a rod, For Daniel Tully and John Holt were on the squad And Jim Holt too, and another called Miles.

H. S. boys competed in the Lombard Field and Track Meet May I, IQZI. This being the same day as the meet at Bradley. it was a difficult task to decide which boys should be present at either place. Green placed first in running broad jump and third in the 50-yard and 220-yilftl dashes. Carter won tirst in the shot put. MILITARY TRACK MEET The Military Track Field Meet and Oratorical Contest was held in Elm- wood May 7. IQZI. Elmwood was handicapped by the rule of the association that no contestant may win iirst in any event more than one year. This worked against Green and Carter, who had won the preceding year. However, we did well, and out of the fifteen schools, we took second place, Stronghurst getting first place. The events of the athletic contests won by Elmwood were as follows: Fifty-yard dash, Green second: 220 hurdles, Harmon second: 440-yard dash, Green first: running broad, .larman third: javelin, Jarman tirst. The relay was won by Elmwood, the team consisting of jarman, Carter, Condit and Green. A. N. W., ,2I. .

About our wonderful baseball team, That went to Southport so far away, To play a game of ball one fair day. They went, hoping to win their fame Against Brimtield in this ball game. The opposing team was so sure and fast That no town against them long could last. Most of the boys went by truck But "Curly" and "Bud" were left behind, So Johnny "Kiln brought them up tYon know that he is so good and kindj- llarry "Mac" was our little catcher. And never did you see a faster. lle caught the ball as it whizzed over the pan. But even then very few of them did fan. Harkness was our pitcher with the arm of wood, He did his best and fnned 'em when he could. But after a time his arm went lame And in order to put up a better game. They put in "Pat" of Edwards fame. "Bud" Hitchcock. he is so lean and lank, Made a first baseman of good rank, But after he had dropped a number They took him out and put in another, 1 think they called him "Percy" in this game, But l don't remember his given name. "Eddie" XNatkins was our second baseman. He caught the balls that came his way And it will be many a day Before they find a better to face 'em. Shortstop was played by "Johnny" and "Bill" VVhen they reached down they picked up the pil Then they threw to lirst so fast and true That the runner was out a mile or two. Albert played third and did his best XVhen he was at bat, he swung very hard, But went ont just like all the rest, Saying he had given the trump card To the man on third who wasn't his pard. Left held was played by Loren Oakes tSometirnes you know they call him "Jokes"3 He came closer than any to catching the ball And he will make a much better player next fall "Mose" Redding was out in right, He was always ready to light. Wfhen in practice old "Lard" hit the ball. It was sure to go over the wall, That is why they called him "Babe Ruth," And I don't think they came far from the truth. llllllllllllIlllllllUIIllllIliIlllIIllllllIllIIllllllllllllIIllIIllllllllIllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllIllIIllllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIIIIlIIllIlllIIIIllIIIIIIIIlllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllIllIllllllllllllllllllllllll 48 T H E U L M U S lllllllillllllllllllllIllIIIllIIillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIIlIIIIIIIIlIllllIlllll!llIllllIIlllIlllllIlllIllllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllillIlllllllllllllllllIllllllllllIlllllIIIIlllllllllllllllllllllllilliliillllllIlillllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllilllllllllllllllll Clyde Hendrix, who came from London Mills, Played center and tried to stop the old pill. lie was the lirst man to get on the base, He stuck out his hand and with awry face. For the ball hit him and he got a free base. After this they put in Dan. But all he could do was fan. Mr. Stinson, the coach, was on hand, He was just like a regular brass band. "Get down on those: don't let them get past: You are slow and think the ball is fast." "jerry Griggs was the whole Brimtield team, But he was enough to spoil our dream. l think the score was thirty to one, But even at that we had some fun. llere's hoping that another fall XVe put up a better game of ball. , , ..

GRANDMA Passing a ,certain house in town one sniffs the air several times, then goes around to a side door to make an investigation. A little woman in a stilily starched dress, with iron-gray hair and blue eyes that twinkle merrily as she greets you, stands, rolling pin in hand, at a table. Near by are some cookies just taken from the oven, and as the little lady bids you to help yourself, you dare not refuse. L. M., ,24. A BOY Slowly there appeared at the edge of the woods a boy, clad in blue over- alls, rolled up to his knees, and a blue shirt with the sleeves rolled up. He has on no shoes or stockings. Over his shoulder is slung a fishing rod on which is a string of fish. Under the straw hat can be seen a pair of dark brown mischievous eyes which tell his story. He has dark hair and a light complexion. He is whistling, which shows he has a good disposition. VVhen he reached the road he sat down and counted his fish. When he found that he did not have as many as the day before, he did not grumble, but exclaimed, 'lBetter luck the next time," and went slowly homeward. f O. P., ,24. He vowed her beauty like a blaze Had tired the heart of him: He made the statement to her pa, lNho tired the rest of him. I swore to her that nothing e'er Should tear her from my side: But as I spoke, the hammock broke And then she knew I lied. He sneaked into the cupboard. He are two pumpkin pies: Now to his ma, and on his bed, He lies and lies and lies.

Mr. Smith, being a night policeman, was obliged to leave his wife and baby at night with no protection save a colored nurse. It had been a very hot. sultry day in the middle of summer and all the windows were open. The windows were screened, for this town, like all other river towns, swarmed with mosquitoes. just at midnight Mrs. Smith was awakened by a grating sound. Someone was cutting the screen. She became perfectly rigid with fear. Her husband had told her of half a dozen burglaries committed recently in the village, and in each case the entrance had been made by cutting the screen. She listened breathlessly, and as the grating sound continued, she looked toward the window. She saw the great black hand of the burglar, and it frightened her so that she jumped up screaming. Immedi- ately the hand disappeared and the colored nurse came in, saying, "Law, chile, is somebody roun' heah tryin' to git in ?" Shivering, Mrs. Smith told her colored mammy what she had seen. An oil lamp was burning low in the room, for thatg was before the days of electric lights, and Aunt Chloe and Mrs. Smith took it and searched every room in the house. They found nothing, and so went very timidly back to bed. For a few minutes everything was quiet, and then the noise began again. Again Mrs. Smith jumped and cried out. Aunt Chloe hurried in, but was too late, for the hand had disappeared. She went to the kitchen door, thinking she might frighten the burglar away by threats. 'Tse got my 'yolyer ready an' I boun' you if any des yer burglars bother us they'll git what they don't want." They listened, but could see or hear no sign of a burglar. Then Mrs. Smith had an inspiration. She thought surely a burglar would have cut the screen just in an instant with one trial, but on examining the screen she found just a tiny hole. She said they would lower the light and get behind the door and watch. Almost immediately, as they carried out their plan, they saw the large hand appear again. Instantly they turned the light up and saw-not the hand of a burglar, but a large gray river rat thathad got into the house by accident and was trying to get out by gnawing a hole in the screen. Mrs. Smith heaved a sigh of relief. She was at a loss for a minute to know what to do. She knew she couldn't Hghtt the rat, for it would be sure to bite her. Then a plan formed in her mind. She ran and opened the outside kitchen door, out which the rat scrambled and ran away into the darkness. Then Aunt Ch1oe's voice was heard in farewell: "Go long, Mr. Rat 3 better not come heah no more. Come on, honey. less you and me go and try to git some sleep, case we ain't know what minute gwine to be the next." ,. . R.

Y. Friend Richard : VVe hev been havin' great times here since I last wrote ye, as all the nay- bors hev taken to studin' spellin' books an' dictionaries. Ther fact is, by way of raisin' a little excitement, all the villages around hes been gettin' up spellin' matches. A few nights ago they had one over to ther Ridge in ther same ole red schoolhouse. XVhere you an' I sat, side by side, years ago, youid hardly know it now, as it is about three times as large, hevin' an addition built on each side. I never pass by it, Dick, but what I think of th good ole days that air passed. XVal, ye see, I thot I better get redy and attend that spellin' match, as I hed herd the words were to be given by Elder Jones, from Cook's spellir, to be followed by some selected from a daily paper, so it looked mighty easy. Every evenin' I would spend about an hour in study from the ole book. The evenin' of the contest arrived. It was fine sleighin'. I hitched up my little mare, Fire-ily, an' after tucken the buffalo robe 'round Betsy away we went like the wind. ' "Now, Jed, don't make a fool of yourself to-night, tryin' to spell words you know nothin' about," sed Betsy. 'They sey the Decon's son from College is goin' to be there an' several of the High School gals." "jest wait an' see how I come out," I answered kinder put out. "You wimmin make me tired." XN'hen we entered the schoolhouse it wuz crowded. I found a seat for Betsy, then pushed my way to the platform, wher the chief actors of the evenin' wus. Betsy hed cleaned an' pressed my clothes so I looked as line as any of 'em. Thar wus fifty of us in the light an' I stood at the foot of the class. I wus well booked on the "ologies" an' "res" an' "cis" but the others looked daggers at me as I held my own. "Give it to 'em, Jed. I'll bet on you," came from John Johns, who sat over in the corner. The Elder paused fer a few moments to wipe off his glasses, then care- fully scannin' the evenin' paper pernouneed the word "jill" "G-i-b, jib," said Sue Adams. "Set down," yelled several voices. "Next," said the Elder. "That's easyf' replied Brothers Bowers, an' carefully spelled "G-e-i-b." I was next an' a shakin' with laughter rose to my feet an' spelt "j-i-b" right off an' I wuz right. illlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllllllIlllllllIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllIIlllllllllllilllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Ii, 56 T H E U L M U S IllIIIIlllllIllIllllIllIllllllllIllillllllllllI!lllllIIIIIIllIIlllllIIIIIllllIlllllIlllillllIllllIllIIlllllllllIIllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIllIIIllIllIIIIIIlIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlIIIllllllllllIllllllllllIIllllllllllllllllIllIlllllllllIllIIIIllllllllllllIIIIllllllllIIIIlllllllIIIIllllllllllllllllllfl! "Three cheres fer Uncle Jed. He's all right." This came from the crowd. An' after bowin' thanks I held out my hand fer the silver ice pitcher that wuz presented me. By gosh, it tickled me most to death, I can tell you. On the way home the boys wanted to race so I left Fire-Hy go and she sure did go. Me an' Betsy wuz home in no time. 'Perhaps that cunnin' rascal, Sam Shaw, thot he would make me lose that race by puttin' some burrs in Fire-Hyis upper jaw, but Uncle Jed wasn't born yesterday. . I wuz feelin' so happy over the silver ice pitcher an' final close of the evenin' that Betsy yielded to my persuasion an' made up some good hot lemon- ade to take before goin' to bed.

And he came ridin' home in a darned little Ford. lrVhen got about home and came to the gate, He shut down the throttle and he pulled on the brake. He grabbed for the lines, got the throttle instead, And the gol darned Ford kept chugging right ahead. Al jerked on the levers and turned off the gas, He kicked at the pedals and broke out the glass: He cut all the wires and pulled off the top, Cut a hole in the tank and drained out the gasoline. He pulled out his gun, shot the tires full of lead, But the gol darned Ford kept chugging right ahead. He :sure wiped out the fence row a-coming down the lane, Vvhen sister Elva saw him she almost went insane. She lan in front to stop him and wildly waved her hat, But the chugging little Ford made quick work of that. She reached out her arms as she went in the air, And as Al came by she grabbed him by the hair, She held on for dear life and landed on his head And the gol darned Ford kept chugging right ahead. He steered for the shed. but just missed the hole, Struck an old pig and you ought to saw it roll Out in a pen where they landed in a heap In a big mud puddle about six feet deep. Al grabbed Elva and he waded for the shore, He was glad that it stopped and wouldn't go no more, Then he came to his senses and he turned back and said "VVhy, that gol darned Ford is chugging right ahead." -Chorus- Old Al NVolford bought an automobile, Old Al VVolford let loose of the wheel, Old Al NVolford spent a week in bed. But the gol darned Ford kept chugging righe ahead. .

It ap- plies to every phase of High School life and is necessary to the success of any activity. NN'ith the proper spirit, a student can see his duty and be loyal to the school and yet in an unselfish manner, be able to give up doing something he wanted to do for the school, if another person is more fitted to do it. :X proper spirit will put more harmony in the school and make the students work together for boosting the school and supporting its activities. A study or any- thing else worth while requires work, and if any good is to be gotten out of it. work must be put into it. A thing profits you in proportion to the work you do. This proportion is always true, and all know from experience just how much the bluffer gets out of anything and how much the worker gets. A student may not feel inclined to take part in the activities of his school, but he is the loser by so doing, for he loses the experience. The school is a person's opportunity. The idea is that the school is for you, not you for the school. and the student with the proper spirit resolves to get everything out of school that it can possibly give, such as refinement, culture, knowledge and pleasure. This same spirit will keep a student from knocking the school and its activities, and instead make him an all-round booster. Almost everyone shines in some things-in studies. socially or in athletics, but he should not spend all of his time on any one of these, or, in common terms, he would be lopsided. Instead of that, he should try to make himself one and have just as much or more pleasure. So when something worth while comes along, don't wait to be dragged into it. I.et's have more pulling on the rope and fewer being dragged. School spirit is an ideal to be followed. If the students, as individuals, get the right spirit, the school as a whole will have a progressive, unbeatable spirit. L. O., '22. WE FARMERS My father frets and worries because the price of' corn is low, he says it makes him feel so blue that he don't know what best to do. Sometimes he thinks he'll sell his land and work no more to beat the band, but move to town and sit around while someone else stirs up the ground and raises grain to feed the folks. He says he doesn't mind to toil when he makes money from the soil, but when'-he works the whole year long and sells his produce for a song, it makes him feel he'd better quit and take life easy for a bit. It makes me laugh to see him fret. My mother raises a lot of hens, you bet, and every week or so she has a check for eggs or milk or cream. I loaf around while not at school and all the hard work I do will never put me in the grave, but what Al makes he tries to save. I haven't got much dough, but I enjoy life as I go. Al doesn't have very much expense, for he goes to school and never fixes any fence, but we all have what we want to eatg Al's cooking can't be beat. So Al and I just take things as they come and go and we never fret a bit. E.

He took me by the arm and we went into the graveyard. He said some magic words and a grave opened at our feet. He led me down some dark steps, and all of a sudden we came to a large hall, all lighted up. Here was a lot of people playing cards and dancing to Hoffn1an's Orchestra. Napoleon, Lincoln, Adams, Monroe, Jefferson and lNashington began to play poker. I wandered around a while to see what I could find. At one entrance of the big hall I saw Napoleon's army, and at another entrance I saw VVash- ington's army. I then we11t back to where they were playing poker. VVashington and Napoleon began to quarrel and then to fight. They both called for their armies' and the battle began. All the people fled from the hall. The rattling of bones, tiring of guns and spears and shields clashing together made a thundering sound. The blood began to run in a little stream and kept getting bigger and bigger all the time. Some of the men were drowned and others escaped the Hood, but were killed by 'Washingtonls men. N apoleon's men were killed with him inside of six hours, and XVashington's men won the victory and also the game of poker. J. B. H., 324. ' A DAY OF THE SCHOOL ROOM CLOCK I am one of the most important articles in this schoolroom. I know that I am looked at more than any other thing. My face is not so pretty, but it tells many things. My hands cover my eyes with shame sometimes because of the things I see the girls and boys do. Q Many are the things I see that the teachers do not. Somebody passes notes and someone else does something else. Is there anyone in this room who really concentrates his mind for live minutes at a time? And now, you mighty Senior, don't you try to pass any more notes, because you have passed too many already. Say, there, Freshie, you stop-bothering that girl's hair. She is trying to study. If only I could get my hands on him or tell the teachers each day, for sometimes I run down, for Joe forgets to wind me up. Many are the nights in winter that, when I am on the verge of striking I2 o'clock, mean boys come stealing into the room, and well can I remember how one night the boys took all the books and piled them in the front of the l'O0I11. If only I could have told you. I C.

Then I sit down, take up my pen and concentrate my mind on a game of "Old Cat," which I play by myself. Not thinking of anything right then, I settle myself in a comfortable position and proceed to enlighten myself with slumber. I actually awoke from such a slumber with an inspiration not unworthy of Mr. Alger or some of his contemporaries. Grasp- ing my pen with both hands, I strive to put all my inspiration on the paper at once, the result being that I forgot what I was going to write. The next attack is made more warily because of lack of material. My pen was badly crippled since I had left nearly half of it in the table- top at the last sitting. I sit and think, shift my position and ponder, then, with my head between my hands, I concentrate: but to no avail, for I was never meant to be a novelist or short-story writer. XV hen I came to this conclusion I put my pen down in disgust to do something of more interest to me and of more im- portance to others. ' D. J. T.. ,22. A PERSON The person I am describing is a tramp, who one cold day came to our door. He was dressed in very shabby clothing and his mustache and beard made him look like Rip Van VVinkle. In one pocket of his shredded overcoat was a pair of gloves, but he insisted his hands were cold. His hat was a wide- brimmed felt and the crown was full of holes. His hair came down about his face, which showed he had not visited a barber shop recently. Under one arm he carried an umbrella and in the other hand a ,paper sack. As he was asking for something to eat, the dog came around one corner of the house, and he turned and ran without the dog even barking at him. Nevertheless, he was afraid of dogs. P. J., '24. THE SMALL BOY AT THE CIRCUS On the very front row of seats, leaning dangerously over the railing and looking down excitedly at the ring before him, was a small boy. It was his first circus. He was about four, a tender-hearted, though mischievous little fellow. His cheeks were very rosy with excitement and fun and his blue eyes sparkled as he watched the funny clowns just below him. His curly hair was a soft brown and lay in rings all over his head. His mouth was open in aston- ishment and displayed two even rows of white teeth. He wore a white middy suit, and above his white half-socks could be seen two dimpled knees. On his feet were small black slippers. In one hand he held a bright red balloon and with his other hand he held firmly to the rail. On the seat beside him sat his mother, watching him joyously. At times he would cry, "Oh, mother, look," as he saw something new come into the ring. R.

A boy not small or thin. I'm made of bone that's all my own, And covered with my skin. I live on Earth, because of my birth, I can give no reason why. I'll live my life of toil and strife, And someday, maybe I'll die. Both happy days and sorrow's ways Have shared with me a place, Although yet so young, I've been among The best on earth's large face. Of rural ways the country says I've parted with its share. The cities clamor with echoes stammer I've held the ropes in there. School still claims me or the world would shame me, As one who should study and learn, I'll ride my ambition to a successful position, And take a world's stand in my turn. My school career is not leer Into high class society. But better say it ends a way ' That's far more suitable to me. Hard times do come when things don't hum, And ride smoothly as they should. But anyway it's best to say. I don't see how they could. just now to me. I can't help but see A holdback on my hands: Hut may be days will change the ways, And place me on better lands, The work l've tried don't coincide VVith the time that I can give. My money sack has broken its back And I doubt if it can live. My studies much are slighted such That will never get me throughg My health will fail without avail Then what am I going to do. Those conditions are facts without war taxes, And many more I could add: To look at them all, makes me want to bawl For my state is really bad. Hadn't someone better write me a letter And drop it on the route? I surely need a friend indeed. Or someone to help me out. C. F. M.

Elmwood, Illinois 1 F EDUCATION IN BUYING The past few years. when the cost of living has been such a problem, has taught everybody the necessity of learning to buy right. And the B. 8: M.-with their in- sistence upon quality, have been among the foremost in economy teaching. The theory here is-there is saving of money in quality-even though it may cost more in the begin- ning. To be sure of quality look for line fabric, Fine tailor- ing, fine Finish and refined style. It will guarantee ser- vice and satisfaction! B. 8: M. Clothes, whether for Young Men or Young Women, are bought by the standard of quality. Of thzt hundreds of young B. 8: M. patrons can testify.

There were two Older sons and similarly two Younger sons. Queer to say, the two Younger sons were older than the two Older sons, but the Older sons, although younger, seemed older than the Older ones. the older Younger, being older. liked the younger Older, but the older Older and the younger Younger were too near the same age. The older Older and the older Younger realized the trouble more than the younger Younger and the younger Older did, but they could not tell them. So the older Older and the younger Younger brought trouble between the Olders and the Youngers. "Ponting Babies Need Castoriaf' .99 -3 .3 XVC cry. we talk, we laugh, we walk.

One of these exploits had a very sad ending. One spring day, when the birds were singing and the air was warm and balmy, Hiram decided to go fishing. not in the proverbial water-pail, but in a brook which ran by the town and was only a short distance from Hiram's home. Equipping himself with the necessary apparatus, he set out and arrived at the brook in a few minutes. Baiting his hook, he threw it into the water and sat down to wait until some poor tish would eondeseend to bite. .-Xs I said before. the day was warm and balmy, and Hiram was soon dozing and dreaming of doughnuts aml buttermilk, when all of a sudden there was such a tre- mendous pull on the lille that our hero fell head-long into the stream. He gripped the pole tightly, however and pulling with all his strength landed such a fish that must have been some relation to the creature that swallowed Jonah. It was at least five feet long and six feet in circumference. The fish was rather savage at first. but after some petting and coaxing he allowed himself to be led to Hiram's home. VVheu lrliram got his fish home it proved to be as doeile as a lamb and that evening ate its supper of horseshoe nails and asparagus ont of Hiram's hand. lt was a very intelligent and knowing fish, and in a few days, Hiram had it so well trained that it would come running at his mastcr's call. lt would also go on small errands. such as carrying coal. chopping wood, and one time it picked some cherries for Hiranrs mother to make a pie. Now in Hiram's backyard there was a deep well with a cover over the top. One day Hiram went out and got a pail of water and like all men, he forgot to pull the cover back on. After he had returned to the house, the fish, with the inquisitive- ness of the village gossip. marched up to the well to take a look. Leaning over too far. he lost his balance and fell in with one great splash. Hiram, hearing the splash. rushed out of the house and not finding his pet. but noticing the cover off the well. ran over there, and sure enough. there was his fish, who after a few minutes hopeless struggling had drowned. After that, Hiram's life was forever saddened and never again could he be persuaded to go fishing. L. F., '24. .al-88 French Translation Nous ne sommes pas alle 'N some knew pa's alley.

It was becoming gray in the eastg I knew it must be coming morning. Listen. Did I hear a sound in the hall? Yes, It must be Mr. Debacher starting his daily work. Oh, what luck. It is Mr. Debacher. Now I know that I will not stop, as he will wind me up. Sure enough, he wound me up, so now I can watch through the day. VVell, here comes somebody dragging his feet through the hall. Now what do you know about that? It is Clare Baggg the boy is always late. And it is only 8 o'clock. Eight fifteen, there is somebody talking in the hall. It sounds like Ralph McKown arguing with Cornelius Kemp. I have it now--Ralph is trying to persuade Cornelius to take L. F. for an auto ride Sunday night. Here come some teachers. I will bet Miss Smith is the first person in this room. I was right. Nine o'clock and Miss Smith is taking up the roll. I was watching out the window, then Miss Smith said, "Classes pass." Everybody seems to be scared, as only a few people stay in this room. Miss Anderson comes and takes charge of the assembly. Everything goes well that period and the next two periods. Then Mr. Stinson takes charge of the assembly. He became quite interested in some new feed that he was going to tell the Animal Hus- bandry class about, and forgot to ring the bell until the I2 o'clock whistle blew. In the afternoon the teachers caught some notes going around. Every- body stayed in. The Animal Husbandry class thought something special was going on, so they hurried to the assembly. They were caught in the trap. Everybody left the schoolhouse and Mr. Debacher locked up. It grew dark and I could hear my companions still ticking away. F. E.

There was a time when the lard hog was justly called the "Mortgage Lifter." When he was butchered, the largest percentage of his body was made up of lard or fat, a very desirable thing, and the object was to produce large quantities of lard, at a time when lard was selling high. But these condition-s have changed. Dozens of substitutes for lard are selling at a price for which lard cannot be produced, and these substitutes are being used all over the country in place of lard. The Market now demands a meat hog, and the packer is willing to pay a premium on him. A hog that will produce the highest percentage of edible meat, the best loin, the heaviest ham and the mo-st superior quality of lean bacon. We have come to a place in swine industry, where the entire business has changed. The men who are breeding the old fashioned lard breed of hogs, realize fully well that the demand for the meat hog has come to stay, and are rapidly changing their type. But it takes time for a breed to change type, years and years. So, the best plan is to put in a breed of hogs that has always been a meat type, and that breed is the Hampshire Breed. For the past three years at the Chicago International, the greatest fat stock show in the world, the Hampshire hog has been made grand champion over all breeds in the car-load lots. Perhaps more important than winning this great honor are vhe records brought out by the dressing carcass contests. In these contests the Hamp- filu1Il!I'lV.'.ii5'kEII1'l1II1flflIIHillHl'll'lIilIlll!H'IIHHILlllIl'll'llllHlllllilllliiltllllllIHl!HHlIIlHl3lI'HHillllllllill.IIlIIIII'Il4I1lIIlIINI1IIlIIIIIIllNIllllllllilllllllllllllilllIIINIi1IillIIIllllIIKNIIllllIHIIIIlllllVIIIIlllllIllllllllllllilllllllllllllIlllfllllllli T H E U L M U S 105 iiillllllllllllllIlIIlllllill!lllllIIlllllllllllillllilillliillllllllillllllllll'llllllIllllll,lllllll1lllllliTilIl'il'ElililliillllllliilililllilllIllllllllllllllllllllllTlI?lllIirIIlhlllilllirliilllIllllllllllllllllllllIIIIllllilllllllIliiillllilillllllllllllllllllllililllilillllliillllllilliiii A JUNIOR YEARLIN G HAMPSHIRE BOAR High dressing percentage, prolificy, hardiness, foraging ability and early maturing quality are some of the superior features of the Hampshires. shire Hog both in the butcher or middle weight cla-ss and in the heavy weight class dressed out a highter percentage than any other breed. Another point is that the Hampshire dressed out 85.55 per cent of their live weight in the medium class, while in the heavy weight class they dressed 85.46 per cent. This means that the Hamp- shires in the meduim weight class, are at the heighth of their dressing percentage. From the medium to the heavyweight, which is an unprofitable time to feed, the dress does not run quite as high. Yet, other breeds are directly opposite they dress by far the higher percentage in the heavy weight class than in the medium weight class. Every producer of market hogs should get these facts firmly planted in his mind. At the same International these Hampshires were the youngest hogs, yet they were the heaviest and dressed out more pounds of edible pork and produced it in less time. At this International, the packer year after year has paid a premium on Hamp- shires. They are doing it because the Hampshire Hog absolutely fills the demand of the market, the demands of the packer. It reaches the market age in less time, goes on the market heavier and with a carcass that sells at a premium because of the high quality of its meat. Another thing about the Hampshire Breed, they are extremely prolific. Records have been kept on the recording farrowing performance of all the breeds of hogs over a period of a year and they show that the Hampshire will farrow and rai-se two pigs to the litter more than any other breed of hogs. The Hampshire Hogs are extremely hardy, they are the most active of any breed of hogs, they are up and going, foraging around for their living. During the summer months, the largest percentage of their living comes from alfalfa, clover and blue- grass pastures. As a market proposition the Hampshire Hog -stands out alone among all breeds, and this is the reason that the Hampshire breed has made such sensational records. The Hampshire Breed is backed by a live organization, The American Hampshire Swine Record Association. This Association is at all times ready to help every Hamp- shire breeder, whether he be large or small. The- Hampshire business is a growing business and now is the time to get in it. You should not be raising lard hogs to supply a market demand, which is for the meat hog and a meat hog only. For further information address, E. C.
