■' Zvs ' DEDICATION In grateful acknowledgement to Alice Bell, who, because of her keen sympathy, sincere co-operation, and never-failing service, has helped us realize this volume. «iO©(I)i(I}OOiOO 1923 «i0!0©0i Slstohia b Inspired by a desire to portray the different phases of high school life and to leave behind a souvenir of these happy days, we venture to present this volume of “The Elstonian.” We strongly urge its continuance by coming graduation classes of Isaac C. Elston High School, since no greater monument of high school life can be left behind. So here it is. It is not the acme of journalism, but we hope it will please. It is our wish that you may ponder over this book from year to year, until, if ever, the memories of these pages of life shall be turned in oblivion. msaamJohn Collins. ....................................Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Mack..............................................Class Editor Latkrop Mack.............................................Athletic Director Constance Stockwell..........................................Chib Editor norma CaNILLE Jones..........................................Joke Editor Rudolf Ziemer.........................................Illustrator Wallace Chubb...............................

ELSTON HIGH SCHOOL MICHIGAN CITY. INDIANA ws lstohicufr IHKIIEG IN APPRECIATION We, the Class of 1923, wish to express to Mr. Edward Dankert, an alumnus of 1917, our thanks and appreciation for his work in our behalf. Mr. Dankert was the artist for The Elstonians of 1915 and 1916, and much of the effectiveness and success of these publications was due to his work. He has given much of his time to the art work and to the arrangement of this volume, features for which The Elstonian of 1923 will be long remembered. We thank, you, Mr. Dankert, “ye loyal son of M. C. High.” 1923 ROBERT BARTHOLOMEW Every noble life, be it long or short, leaves behind it an undying glow, a radiant splendor that lives on with the years. Such a life was Robert’s. A rare personal charm and a gracious nature endeared him to all. Into the classroom he carried a spirit of cheerful willingness and earnest effort which won for him a high rank as a student. In all school activities he felt a deep interest and took an active part. The sterling qualities of character were his—manliness, purity of thought, nobility of aim, high ideals of life. And permeating all, like rays of sunlight, was his deep joy in living. BOGOTA £stShiafb M. C. H. S. 0 source of knowledge, great, sublime and grand, To thee I dedicate this poem brief; May’st thou through all the ages firmly stand, And that thou wilt is my sincere belief. For thou, with colors beautiful and bright. Art best of all the schools (’tis always said), And in thy emblem, red and white, the white For purity doth stand; courage, the red. O most beloved school of all—to thee We will be loyal and thy name will bless. Thou wilt forever in our memory Remain, our dear old school, M. C. H. S. —Leona Wellman 1923  lstohkub L. W.

HIGH Some day we’ll sit and dream about The folks we used to know At Michigan City High School In the days of long ago. We’ll picture friends we used to love, And some we merely knew, And many little incidents We used to see and do. We’ll find that as the years go by, Though faces we recall, The names we try to put to them Don’t seem to fit at all. There’ll be teachers that we loved or feared, Which e’er the case may be, Whose voices we’ll hear, though name and face Have left our memory. There’re memories we’ll soon forget, But many more we’ll bless, For most of us are happy, At our dear M. C. H. S. —Mu rie K linkenbergCLASS POEM The toil is over, the work is done, The hard-earned laurels at last are won, The song of farewell has begun, M. C. High. The four short years have quickly sped, But still with tenderness we look o’er head At thy proud colors—white and red, M. C. High. For life’s great battles we now prepare, Of all thy benefits we’ve had a share. And all thy memories cherish with care, M. C. High. And in the future may we never Thy bonds of friendship try to sever, And keep our faith with thee forever, M. C. High. —Constance Stockiest!

Happy days and happy hours That we spent in M. C. Hi, But they ne’er will be forgotten, Though the years are passing by. May we face life’s serious problems Without a shirk or sigh, And may they be as pleasant As they were in M. C. Hi. —Helen DewaldHISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS Ah great Clio, divine afflatus, ah descend; Inspire this pen, ah guide it rightly on its trend. Bend down and in my darkened spirit breathe; Let truth and inspiration dread my soul ensheathc. On wanderings long and drear from regions bleak obscure. Called “Central,” once a tribe set out, full well secure In their great knowledge, trusting to upset the land To which they travelled in close ranks, a pilgrim band. They sought to worship at the feet of mighty Wisdom, A goddess great and good who ruled o’er, as her kingdom, A land called Learning which the faithful might approach When cne year had been spent within the temple garth. In their novitiate they labored and endured The lofty snubs and slights of those who had procured That right by virtue of long service at the shrine; But yet some light broke through the chilling gloom to shine Before them on their path revealing here and there, As oasis in a desert of despair. Games and parties where their joy was uneonfmed And when one year was done they moved up one step higher. And when they found themselves no longer lowest on The altar’s step they made the proper haste to don A garment fitting in hauteur and grace their new Position. Now inferiors’ homage was their due. In their new gotten station, acting hosts, they gave A party for newcomers that intrigued, all save A few, whom elder uninvited guests received W ith far more warmth than hospitality required. Next year they saw their need for union, so they chose Charles Beckman leader for the troubles which arose. New first as Thespians their dreams began to soar, With “Clarence” as result no one cculd wish for more. For those who now were entering in upon the land Toward which they struggled, they entertained with lavish hand And sent them off with thoughts of pride and of regret. Now they were elders soon to try the great adventure. In their last and most important year they made John Burnham leader. In him all their hope was staid. They revived an ancient custom long neglected, And the “Elstonian” came out again perfected. Once more they tried their hand at acting and performed A play reflecting glory on all those concerned, And now this tr.be sets forth into an Unknown Land Leaving all they know behind to seek anew. —Lester DothIIMIMIJ. oraoo Qlstohian THE SENIORS PASS BY “Here is like to be a great presence of worthies. Here’s an excellent place; here we may see most bravely: I’ll tell you them by their names as they pass by.” Charles Beckman— The purest treasure mm-tal times afford Is spotless reputation; that away, Men are but gilded loam or painted clay. Mine honor is my life. Dutton Boeckling— This fellow’s of exceeding honesty. And knows all qualities with a learned spirit of human dealings. Harriet Brink— I like your silence; it the more shows off your wonder. John Burnham— The gravity and stillness of your youth The world hath noted and your name is great In mouths of wisest censure. Wallace Chubb— Ay, Sir; to be honest, as this world goes, is to be one man picked out of ten thousand. John Collins— A merrier man Within the limit of becoming mirth, I never spent an hour’s talk withal. Janice Cooney— Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye, Than twenty of their swords. Dorothy Daggy— She that was ever fair and never proud, Had tongue at will, and yet was never loud. Albertha Dempster— Why, what a mad-cap hath heaven lent us here! Helen Dewald— Her voice was ever soft, Gentle, and low—an excellent thing in woman. Phebe Dewitt— They have measured many a mile To tread a measure with you on this this grass. Harlan Dilts— He sits ’mongst men, like a descended god. He hath a kind of honor sets him off, More than a mortal seeming. Lester Dolk— His words are bonds, his oaths are oracles; His love sincere, his thoughts immaculate; His heart as far from fraud, as heaven from earth. Madelene Goodrich— But you, O you, So perfect and so peerless, are created Of every creature’s best. Alice Graham— Happy is your grace. That can translate the stubbornness of fortune Into so quiet and so sweet a style. Anna Hirschmann— Your words, they rob the Ilybla bees, and leave them honeyless. Keeny Jenks— He was a gentleman on whom I built An infinite trust. Leah Kellogg— It is the witness still of excellency, To put a strange face on his own perfection. Muriel Kriesel— A very good piece of work, I assure you, and a merry. Canille Jones— The lark whose notes do beat, The vaulty heaven so high above our heads. mo 1923 Elizabeth Mack— What is the end of study? Why, that to know, which else we should not know. Things hid and barr’d, you mean, from common sense? Ay, that is study’s godlike recompense. Lathbop Mack— Wanelia Sights— She will outstrip all praise And make it halt behind her. Erma Smith— She hath prosperous art When she will play with reason and discourse, And well she can persuade. Doubt not, my lord; I’ll play the orator, As if the golden fee, for which I plead, were for myself. Lawrence Marcinkowski— His life was gentle; and the elements So mixed in him, that Nature might stand up And say to all the world: This was a man! Dorothea Martin— I have Immortal longings in me. Robert Nast— The man that hath not music in himself Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds— Let no such man be trusted. Thelma Oswald— Those about her From her shall learn the perfect ways cf honor. Reynolds Pacl— A fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. Thelma Rotzean— There’s nothing ill can dwell in such a temple. Louis Sieb— There’s in him stuff that puts him to these ends: The force of his own merit makes his way; A gift that heaven gives for him, which buys A place next to the kings. era Robert Staufer— Fiom the crown cf his head to the sole of his foot, he is all mirth; he hath a heart as sound as a bell, and his tongue is the clapper; for what his heart thinks, his tongue speaks. Constance Stockwell— She’s a most exquisite lady. She’s beautiful, and therefore to be woo’d: She is a woman; therefore to be won. Lloyd SwaRtzell— There’s nothing so becomes a man, As modest stillness and humility. George Warkentine— 0, he sits high, in all the people’s hearts; And that which would appear offence in us, His countenance, like richest alchemy, Will change to virtue and to worthiness. Leone Wellman— There appears much joy in her; a kind overflow of kindness. Elva Westphal— Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful. Katherine Young— A fair face will wither; a full eye will wax hollow; but a good heart, Kate, is the sun and moon; or rather the sun, and not the moon; for it shines bright, and never changes. Rudy Ziemer— The man is noble; and his fame folds in This orb o’ the earth. oooooro Richard Frame Alden Schvvinkendorf Arthur Phillips Margaret Redpath Marie Klinkenberg senior- rs Marian Johnson Vance Geyer Helen Mell Charlotte Taylor Gladys Erickson Gladys Bull Eva Melson Alethea Kagels Thelma Melson Ethel Leusch  Z6X ft? ximu g Charles Arnt SECRETARY Eva ttlelson TREASURER OOOOQOliroOOOOT §£$t(xhicUfr OTOOOO  ra)!om §lsXohian CLASS OF 1924 Robert Anderson Charles Arnt Aloizy Bebak Ross Baird Alton Bendix Berget Blocksom Robert Boone Ronald Clark Warren Coan Philip Dabbert Carl Engelhardt Jordan Hays Frank Hobart John Hunter Bertrand Jordan Russell Kill Harry Kirk Arnold Krueger Louis Lauer James Leeds Bennie Linkemer Charles Martin Keith McAlpine Earl McCallister Harold Mercer Harrison Orr John Pecknic George Peglow Ralph Roeske Earl Rudnick Lyle Ruggles Vernon Swanson Lawrence Trost Hildegarde Berkheiser Burdette Conant Grace Costello Ida Damerau Helen Debrick Irene Diffanbaugh Myrtle Engstrom Gertrude Finley Leona Freyer Evangeline Glasscott Florence Harris Mildred Hildebrandt Ethna Jochum Alice Jergensen Jane Keitiiley Lillian Kieffer Gladys Leggett Margaret McAlpine Katherine Ohming Genevieve Paxton Gertrude Robinson Elizabeth Sheridan Lucile Speciuen Charlotte Spero Esther Westphal Helen Anderson Frances Kellogg Harold Wilcox WQiOM 1923HISTORY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS In September, 1920, the Freshmen who entered High School were exceptionally sound in mind and body and lacked nothing but experience. After several weeks, which we used to familiarize ourselves with our surroudings, we elected officers . Robert Anderson was chosen for president, Theresa Stroup, vice-president, and Charles Arnt for secretary-treasurer. Our first social event was the party given in our honor by the Sophomores. We went and enjoyed our importance immensely. We were brought back to earth, however, at the end of the first six weeks when we received our report cards. From then on we studied diligently and passed mid-year exams creditably. During the second semester we gave a series of class parties which made us stand out in the eyes of the school, for no other class had ever done anything like it. We were well represented in athletics by Roeske, Mercer, McCallister, Lordan, Boone, Kirk, and Krueger. Robert Anderson and Eva Melson represented us in oratory. As Sophomores we laid our few childish habits away and elected Harrison Orr, president; Thelma Melson, vice-president, and Charles Arnt, secretary-treasurer. The party we gave for the Freshmen was planned by Miss Shepherd, so, of course, everything went off letter perfect. There was a short program, then games, eats and dancing. At eleven o’clock our guests thanked us for a delightful evening and then hurried home. It was getting late, you know. A much larger number tried their hand in the various fields of activity, our sole orator being Robert Anderson, who made the debating team. Arnold Krueger and others distinguished themselves in the musical comedy “Patricia,” given under the auspices of the Glee Club. Four of the winners of the Music Memory Contest came from our number, and the girls were represented by two on the Girls’ Council. Final exams cast a few from our net, but as a whole we entered our Junior year as strong as ever. This year Esther Westphal, Mildred Richter and Eleanor Precious represented us in girls’ athletics, Robert Anderson in debating, and the same old gang in boys’ athletics. In every Junior’s life there are two important affairs. The Junior Play and the Junior Prom. The former, “The Tailor Made Man,” was presented in January under the capable direction of Miss Olive Kackley. It was a big success. The Junior Prom, to be given for the graduating Seniors, will be the one formal occasion of the school year. We plan to make it the best prom ever given. All those who pass their exams will enter with dignity their careers as wise old Seniors. • —Eva Melson WMP3i0i(M 1923 UNEXCUSED Panting and weary and breathless You enter the classroom door, With just one foot on the threshold, You have but one second more. Then, crash! the gong is sounding, You face your teacher stern; “You are late; an excuse procure—” And toward his office you turn. How few the excuses to be given, Oft have they all been told! Oh could you but think of something else, Of something not so old! And so you carefully write it, Place every letter so, And enter into his presence, With measured step and slow. He reads it in an instant, He has no word to say. But he lifts on high that rubber stamp, And you have a half hour to stay. —Louis Siei iCOGtQCOOOjOfflOCIIJcrooora SlsShiaib  SOPHOMORE CLASS ROLL Earl Atkins Rudolph Schnick Florence Kramer John Anderson Edward Sights Margaret Leary John Bartholomew Elton Smith Dorothy McAlpine Omar Bowers Joseph Stipp Helen Minke Edward Brant Charles Stolze Dorothy Misener Norman Carlson Melbert Swanson Florence Smelter Marshall Carpenter Frederick Voss Alice Smelter Russell Coan Walter Weber Elizabeth Hale Ray Cochran Glenn Westpiial Arbutus Moldenhauer Robert Christian Leslie Wilson Mary Moscan Clyde Eddy Lewis Ziemer Frances Myers Elmer Engstrom Frances Arndt Mildred Nicklas Jack Ferguson Davina Arrowsmith Lillian Norris J.

We rush and scramble For our man, the ball and baskets. Again the whistle—for the half. Serious moments with him who admonishes Better thinking, more teamwork, Greater accuracy, saner judgment. The game resumes. A jump—a play—a score, Followed by cheers. Another play, a score, But in the other basket— Silence. Play follows play, some broken up, Begun again, some good, some bad. Until the last whistle and the final shout That tells its own story. Then troop the players to the showers, Some merry, some disappointed, Some ready to celebrate, some eager for revenge. But little it matters, “Whether you won or lost— It’s how you played the game.” —John BurnhamCOOiOM ATHLETICS Seven years ago it was said that mention of athletics in M. C. H. S. was accompanied by a blush, and that our teams were always regarded as jokes. “Them days,” in the words of the immortal Shapespeare, “is gone forever.” Time was when we spoke of our past glory, of the “good old days,” when M. C. H. S. was represented by real teams, once, we deplored the present and viewed the future with pess'mistic eyes. The days when M. C. H. S. was ashamed of her athletic teams are past. No longer is it necessary for us to excuse our teams in the eyes of our neighbors and alumni. Michigan City High School is living in a glorious present. Her basketball team has just completed the most successful season M. C. H. S. ever had, because for the first time in her history, the honor and glory of a Sectional Championship is hers. Emblematic of this championship is the beautiful cup given by “The News,” as a reward for winning a certain percentage of games. M. C. H. S. faces a brilliant future. A new day has dawned in the annals cf our beloved school. The school has awakened from its lethargy. A new, real, school spirit has been found. School loyalty exists today in a sense in which it was never thought of before. It took a great event to wake us up, but we “came to” with a vengeance. The school realized what it was capable of on the Monday following the victory at Valparaiso and M. C. H. S. will never forget those days, both Saturday and Monday. As to the future—in the first place we have the makings cf a wonderful football team. Our basketball prospects bid fair to rival our last glorious season. Baseball looms up as we gc to press and the outlook is bright for a good season. M. C. H. S. is looking ahead. The past, though glorious, is not for us. Ours is the future to mold as we will. So here’s to M. C. High!

S. 0 — Warsaw 27 §£sXohian FOOTBALL 1922-23FOOTBALL 1922-23 At the start of last year’s football season, M. C. H. S. appeared to have the strongest team since 1910. Our line was proclaimed as the heaviest in the state, averaging one-hundred and seventy-five pounds. Our backfield was fast, as was also the line. The best coach in the history of M. C. H. S. athletics, Andy Gill, was at the helm. The student body was loyal and ready to back a winning team. Yet, we came through the season without a victory. This phenomenon is still unexplained. Our gang could fight and it did fight. True enough, we were never badly beaten, we tied two games and put up a scrap in every contest, however- The schedule was inaugurated with a tie with St. Joe, and only good luck prevented us from taking a licking. M. C. H. S. led until the last three minutes of play. Then St. Joe, with an attack that could not be denied, swept down the field with forward passes and put the ball over the line ten seconds before the whistle. The kick for goal was good, but St. Joe was offside, so the game ended, 6 to 6. The next week Elkhart journeyed our way and back again with a 13 to 6 count stowed away in their pockets. The Elkhart lads did all their scoring in the first quarter. After that it was Michigan City’s game. Our fellows gained one touchdown on a pass from Bendix to McAllister. “Bulldog” Sam was easily the star of this game. The team went to Whiting the following Saturday with the intention of repeating the drubbing which we handed to Whiting in ’21. But the Oil City lads “got even” with a 20 to 0 decision. The most noteworthy feature of this game was the fact that not a single penalty was inflicted on either team. Buchanan was scheduled for the next game and would surely have received the walloping of her life, for our fellows were fighting mad. Several of their star players, however, were injured the previous week, so the massacre was called off. Froebel was next, and two special cars of students accompanied the team to the Steel City. We “venied” and “vidied” but we failed to “vici.” The Crimson and White nearly tied the score in the second quarter and the half ended 9 to 6. Froebel, however, cleaned up in the final stanzas and walked off the field victorious, 22 to 6. Moreover, Froebel clearly deserved the victory for she has a wonderful team. Gill’s charges were now in a state of mind which boded ill for whoever crossed them. Hammond was rated as the strongest team (with the exception of Emerson) in northern Indiana. M. C. H. S., staging a mighty comeback, outplayed Hammond during the most of the game, and were held to a 12 to 12 score by a last minute attack of the Hammond outfit. Dilts, shifted to full-back, was the shining light of the game. After receiving a punt, he ran 75 yards through the entire opposing eleven before being downed. He ripped the line to shreds, being ably seconded by Bendix and McAllister. The final curtain was rung down on the season by the Warsaw tussle. Warsaw came to M. C. claiming the state football championship. The downstaters proved to have the better team and won, 27 to 0. M. C. H. S. would not have been shut cut, had not a fumble occurred while we were on Warsaw’s ten yard line. Whenever Warsaw needed seven points Captain Stamates, the fastest man in the state, took the ball around the end and then kicked the goal. However, our fellows never quit trying. nil«3K» . istohiaib BASKET BALL 1922-23 Andy Gill.

S rose to glorious and unequalled heights in basketball during the past year. Never, it is safe to say, in the past history of our athletics, have we completed such a rosy season as the one just past. Fcr the first year in a multitude of moons the Sectional Championship rests in our hands. Under the able leadership of Captain John Burnham and Coach Andy Gill, the man who made our victories possible, the Crimson and White came through with colors flying. Working like a clock, fighting like tigers for ictcries, their names will never be forgotten while memories of old M. C. H. S. and victories won remain in our hearts. The season began auspiciously, as it were, with a victory over Elkhart. The team with Mobart and Burnham, lerwards: Bills, center; Linkemer and Bendix guards, worked to perfection, and the victory was never in doubt. Cilts and Bendix especially showed what they could do. Thus did we take the heart out of Elkhart—20 to 11. LaCrosse was the next victim and was snowed under to the tune of 20 to 6. Lacrosse, besides having a veteran outfit of three season’s experience, had defeated La Porte by one point earlier in the season Linkemer led the scoring and his floor wor.; was brilliant. Henry, Lauer. Krueger and Leggett also saw service and did well. Whiting was the next team to come our way and M. C. H. S. suffered the first reverse of the season —31 to 12. Whiting deserved to win. having a big, fast team, and had the ball in their possession much of the time. The next week M. C. H. S. journeyed to St. Joe for her first out of town game, and incidentally made up fcr the near reverse in football. They held St. Joe scoreless in th£ first half and conquered 12 to 9. Our five-man defense was impregnable. Warsaw, with its strong and heavy team, administered to the Crimson and White her second defeat. Arain it was a case of too much weight, for our team was very light. The hard game on the previous night also tcld a tale. But we advance no alibis. Warsaw won and deserved to win. Score, 41 to 19. Without the services of Dilts, star center, the Crimson and White journeyed to Goshen and licked last year’s Sectional Champs 16 to 15. Captain "Cork" Burnham made 14 of our 16 points. The one feature which marred the game was the numerous fouls, over forty being called. Goshen had an opportunity to win the game in the last 10 seconds of play when two fouls were called on our team. Next was a home game with Froebel. Our home floor jinx still pursued us and we dropped this one T1 to 27. However, it was a game packed with thrills. The score was tied at 27 with less than a minute to play when a Froebelite took an over-the-shoulder heave with one hand from near the center of the floor. The ball went in—and proved to be the deci ling factor. A few moments later and Froebel made one more basket and the game was over. Although the crowd yelled frantically for a basket, the fellows fought but cculdn t put over the final punch. This g ime will go down in history along with our hair-raising victory over Emerson last year as the best home games of the last two seasons. But turn about is fair play, as Aesop said. The following week we trounced Froebel on her home floor 34 to 24. At no time was the result in doubt and M. C. fully eradicated the defeat of the previous game. Next was a tilt with Crown Point, the matrimonial center. This was another AI. C. H. S. victory, and the result wfas 33 to 23. Crown Point started a rally at the beginning of the second half and almost caught us. but the fellows settled down and the Crown Pointers were out of it. A ain we quote the old adage as Crown Point next paid us a visit. We treated them as visitors should be treated and they w-ent home satisfied with our hospitality. 34 to 29. The team travelled to Whiting the following weo'c but lost again to that sterling group of players. 32 to 17. Whiting, to say the least, has a wonderful team and was the only team to hand us two defeats this season. Whiting won and deserved it. St. Joe next came our way with the intention of getting revenge for her early defeat, but w’as again outclassed. At the end of half-time we led 18 to 16, but at the start of the second half M. C. H. S. cleaned up in a convincing fashion and the game ended 33 to 25. The whole team played wonderful ball. The final game was with Goshen on our owm floar. Goshen was the Sectional Champ last year and was loo .ing for revenge for the 16 to 15 defeat earlier in the season. Instead she was tendered another cup of hemlock and being a good sport, she drained it, figuratively speaking. Isaac C. Elston High School is looking forw'ard t.i even a more successful season than the one just past, if such a thing is possible. With a winning team, a wonderful coach, and a new’-found spirit, and loyalty, what heights may we not attain?  THE SECTIONAL TOURNAMENT With the regular season out of the way, Gill’s gang prepared for the Sectional Tournament. The team put in a hard week of practice and went to Valparaiso in fine condition. Michigan City was scheduled to play her first game with Hebron at 3:00 o’clock Friday. Hebron was easy and lost to us 36 to 7. We next played the winner of the Hanna-Kingsbury game. Hanna won, but fell before our attack to the tune of 30 to 8. M. C. H. S. was proving herself to have one of the strongest teams in the tournament. At 3:00 o’clock on Saturday afternoon we were scheduled to meet the winner of the LaPorte-Valpo fray and every M. C. rooter was pulling for LaPorte because the Orange and Black and the Crimson and White had not met for four years and this would be the closest we had come toward meeting them. Valpo, however, won in an overtime game 18 to 15, but M. C. H. S. d'sposed of Valpo in snappy fashion 20 to 11. This victory placed us in the finals, and at 8:00 o’clock Saturday night M. C. H. S. and LaCrosse hooked up in what proved to be the best game of the tournament. LaCrosse had an easy time all the way through the tournament and was fresh. M. C. H. S. had played a hard game in the afternoon while LaCrosse had not. It was a fight all the way and the Crimson and White emerged victorious, at the top of the heap of twenty teams, by the score of 24 to 19. A howling mob of frenzied supporters carried the victors off the floor. The following Monday a pep meeting was held in the auditorium. It sounds tame to read about it now, but those who were there will never forget that event. For forty-five minutes the school went mad over the team, and they raised the roof with a din which echoed and reechoed through the halls. The team carried the memory of this loyalty with them when they went to LaFayette to represent this section at the Regional Tourney. Anderson was our opponent at 11 o’clock Saturday morning. M. C. H. S. was simply outclassed and beaten 35 to 14. But the fellows never quit fighting and held Anderson to four points during the last ten minutes of the first half. Anderson later lost to Vincennes by two po'nts at the State Tournament in the semi-finals. Vincennes also won first honors at the State Tournament. Last year the outstanding feature of our team was its scoring ability. This year, besides displaying great scoring power, we featured a sterling defense. Coach Gill’s protegees developed a five-man defense to a fine art. Linkemcr and Bendix especially were almost impossible to evade, as their opponents found at the tournament. These two and Dilts were named by the coaches on the All-Sectional team, Linkemcr as running guard, Bendix as back guard and Dilts as center. Linkemer also acquired the further honor of being the best player on the floor at Valpo. Credit must also be rendered to Captain John Burnham, who piloted the team through a tremendously successful season. “Cork” pas-timed at forward and played consistenly all year, starring especially in the Gcshen game. Arnold Krueger started the season as sub during the first half of the season but finished as a regular in a forward berth. Heinie added much to the aggressiveness of the team. Dilts was a whirlwind in every game and was the main point-getter of the team. We are indebted to LaPorte for this brilliant player as he is finishing his high school education in M. C. H. S. Benny “Murph” Linkemer was the backbone of our defense. It was Benny, the smallest player on the team, who broke up most of our opponents’ plays at the tournament. Quick as a flash, scrappy and a good shot, he did as much as anyone to help make our team the success that it was. Bendix proved to be the best back guard turned out by a M. C. High School team in years. He could be counted upon to consistently take the ball off the bank-board and he was a factor in breaking up many plays started by the opposition. He is not a flashy player, but he possesses qualities which are more to his credit—he is consistent, reliable, and a hard worker—in other words, the one best bet. Hobart played a hard, steady game during the whole first half of the season and gave his best for M. C. H. S. Henry, Lauer and Leggett were injected into several games and showed up well. M. C. H. S. will lose two regulars by graduation, seven members of the squad being left with which to perfect a winning aggregation. cooioot Slstohian SOPHOMORE INTER-CLASS CHAMPIONS For the first time in many years, an inter-class basketball league was organized in M. C. H. S. Coach Gill was behind it and he piloted the league through a successful season. When the smoke of battle finally cleared away, the Sophomores emerged victorious and were declared the winners. The victors were captained by Elmer Engstrom, who proved to be a capable leader and a hard player. The other members of the team were Atkins, Orange, Kienitz, Bowers and Mercer. This combination proved to be too much for the aggregations which the other classes put into the field, so the Sophs romped away with the honors. Great interest was shown in the league and practically all the games were close and interesting. No better way could be found to determine class supremacy at the indoor game, and next year, if the league is continued, another successful season is in prospect. 1923 moo KimiMIM lstohian FOOTBALL 1919-20 Glenn Burkhart, Captain Victor Kirk, Coach John Lordan .

C. H. S. much to the joy of the old grads, who remembered our gridiron victories of former years and the championship team of 1904. Our team was necessarily green and inexperienced, although full of fight. The team managed a very successful season, considering it to be the first in seven years, licking Emerson of Gary, losing to Benton Harbor by only two points and holding Bronson Hall to a low score.

C. H. S. went through her schedule displaying a great amount of fighting spirit and aggressiveness. Although we lost most of our games, our little band of fighters gained in experience and self-confidence which proved to be a great help in 1921. After several unsuccessful starts M. C. hit her stride and walloped Warsaw 13-10. Our fighting spirit won the game, for Warsaw made a tremendous bid for a touchdown in the last five minutes of playing. We closed the season in a burst of glory by downing the strong Bronson Hall team of Notre Dame. This was a real fight if there ever was one and the hardest fought battle of the season, and in this game, as in all the others, Michigan City’s play was characterized by teamwork which worked like a clock.

These two games were the biggest victories of our football year. One defeat, that by Elkhart, was nearly turned into a tie. In the last five minutes our fighting Crimson took the ball the length of the field with three forward passes but lacked the weight, not the fight, to put it over. This team, with its backfield of Geyer, Snyder, Chinske and Lordan, was one of the best in our history. THE SEASON’S RECORD M. C. H. S. 13 — Elkhart 20 M. C. H. S. 6 — Froebel 28 M. C. H.

C. II. S. saw the most successful season in many moons. We finished the season with a total of nine wins out of twelve starts. Much credit for such a record is due Coach Everetts, who built up an almost entirely new team to represent the Crimson and White at the net game. Captain “Brotehi” Bernoske was the outstanding player and the main point-getter. However, his work would have been to no avail had it not been for the support rendered him by his teammates. After losing two of the first three games M. C. H. S. hit her stride and from that time to the end of the season we won eight of nine games—a splendid record. After trouncing Valparaiso 33 to 12, we nosed Elkhart out in one of the fastest games of the season. Probably the most thrilling fight was the comeback against the strong Mishawaka five in which M. C. emerged victorious 23-17. The season closed with a win over Froebel 19-8. THE SEASON’S RECORD M. C. H. S. 14 — Warsaw 10 M. c. H. s. 11 — Nappanee 19 M. C. H.

The girls of this organization have always given their loyal support and co-operation to athletics and are on hand at all games, furnishing the spirit which has carried the boys to many a victory. This year seems to have been a reincarnation of girls’ athletics. The basketball team under the able coaching of Miss Sebesta is one of the best girls’ basketball teams in the state. They have engaged in games with the following teams and won every game: Union Mills, Stillwell, Westville, Elkhart (two games), South Bend, and Laporte. The G. A. A. as an organization has also been generous in contributing money to various high school activities—scenery fund, etc. The officers are all graduating from dear old M. C. H. S. but they know that their successors will carry on the work which they have so splendidly advanced.

Th 1 lad. though he carried two crutches, had a bright smile and seemed to enjoy his occupation. “Yes. laddie,” Mr. Canton replied, “1 11 take one—never mind—keep the change.” "Thank ycu, sir ” Mr. Canton stood on the corner, glancing now and then at the paper in his hand, but most of his attention was centered on the lame boy. What a bright little lad and how pleasant he was to everyone. None refused h is papers. A few moments passed and a rough-looking boy came around the corner and addressed the lame boy. thus: “Hey. kid. didja sellum all yet? What? You g t two left? What didja thin : 1 live ’em to you for? There now, you've gottum all sold: hand over ihe dough and be quick about it.” The lame lad handed over the money and then stood by as if waiting for something. The bully turned to go but the lame lad said. “Wait a minute. Bill; ain't you gonna give me my share? You said we'd gone into partnership and I'd git half.” “Humph," grunted Bill, “didja think I meant that?” “Yes. I did, and it's only right that you share it with me. I need it more than you do. Bill, I won't have any supper unless you jive me my share.” “Well, what do I care?” grumbled Bill as he gave the lad a push that sent him reeling backwards. Mr. Canton caught the lad just in time. “He was rather a tough fellow for you to be dealing with, wasn’t he. laddie?" “Well, mister. I halfto cat and he promised to pay me for selling papers." “Have you no parents?” “My mother died a little while ago and I never saw my father.” “Suppose ycu show me where you live." “Aw, gee mister, it s an awful place, but c’mon, 1 11 show you." Block after block they trod. Finally they entered a dirty, untidy house. “So this is where you have been living?" “Yes. mister: awful, ain t it? It wasn't like this when mother was livin'. She kept it so clean.” “And your name, laddie?” “I’m called Con; my name is Conrad Paisly. “H’m, Conrad 1 aisly,' reported Mr. Canton. “See here, Con, 1 I; just rather up your few things and you shall come and live with me. How does that strike you?” “Gee, mister, I'll bet Gcd sent you to me. Mother said God always helped those who pray. n I’ve been praying every night." So it was that Conrad Paisly found joy and happiness in the home of his fester father, whom he always called father. Mr. Canton was a wealthy man. He lived alone, except for his housekeeper, in a very attractive par; of San Diego. Mr. Canton, too. believed that God had sent him to the lame bov. Now he had someone to care for, to love, and have for a companion. He had the very best surgeons operate on Con. After many weeks of pain and suffering, the lad too': his lirst step. He improved gradually and was soon able to walk like the other boys. Conrad s schooling was the very best and he was soon to go to La Jolla College. Mr. Canton and Con were invited to a party at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Montague Paisly. When Con met Mr. Paisly. he remarked about the likeness of their names, but no more was said about it. Con also met Mrs. Paisly and Jack. He soon found out that Jack was also going to enter La Jolla and they agreed to go tocethtr. The day came when the two lads bade farewell to their friends and departed for La Jolla. Now, there never were two finer young men than those two. Con was the weaker of the two. but very handsome. Jack was heavy-set and muscular. They were both handsome, but we shall soon see the difference in character. All went well at college the first year. Both lads made good in their studies and both made many friends. It was now vacation. Con and Jack were glad to get home. When they jumped from the train a lovely young girl about their own age ran to meet them. Jack evidently knew her for he extended both hands in greeting. “Con, this is Mr. Canton’s niece. Barbara Canton, from Los Angeles. Babs, this is Conrad Paisly, about whom you’ve heard your uncle speak.” After the introduction was over, Babs drove them to Jack’s home where all were assembled for the welcoming. The summer passed quickly for both Babs and Con. Jack found it rather dull, for he loved Babs and it was extremely unpleasant for him to see Babs give her undivided attention to Con. Hatred and jealousy were slowly creeping into the mind of Jack. The second year at college was quite different from the first. Jack was completely changed in his attitude toward Con. Jack even went as far as telling untruths about Con to the other boys. He wasfilstohia fr jealous because Con was much more popular than he. Of course Jack had his own “crowd.” but not many of the boys associated with them. Con was liked because of his personality. He was kind and pleasant to everyone. Each year the two drifted farther apart until finally Con knew that Jack was no longer a friend hut now an enemy. Mr. Canton watched the growing friendship between his niece and Con. He had his plans for the future and they centered around these two. In their Junior year, the two boys at La Jolla went in for football—Jack, because he was built for it, and Con because he was tired of being a weakling. When they became Seniors, Jack made the team, but poor Con was listed as a “sub.” Jack was glad —mighty glad. He wrote to Babs and told her of his success and said he hoped she would come down for the big game of the season played against Ensenada—a team that had not been defeated in five years. La Jolla students were confident of their victory over Ensenada, even though their school was very much smaller. Jack wrote many untruths concerning Con. Babs refused to believe them, but still she was quite worried over them. Mr. Montague Paisly was now as much Con’s enemy as his son was; of course he believed all the falsehoods about Con which his son told him in his letters. Mr. Paisly was a staunch football fan. He was very proud that his son was on the team. During his conversations with Robert Canton, Mr. Canton soon learned of the untruths written by Jack. Mr. Canton was very angry, especially when Babs told him the things Jack said in his letters to her. Now Mr. Canton and Babs, as well as Mr. and Mrs. Paisly were going to the I,a Jolla-Ensenada game, so Mr. Canton determined to settle everything when they were all together. Meanwhile bac ; at La Jolla the team was practicing faithfully while the students were greatly excited over the coming game. At last, the day dawned, on which Ensenada would add to its list another victim, or La Jolla would spoil its list by winning the game. Mr. and Mrs. Paisly started early in the morning on their drive to La Jolla for the game. Babs had arrived the day before, so she and Mr. Canton started soon after the departure of the Paislys. Mr. Canton seemed troubled over something, but Babs refrained from asking what it was. The dark clouds drooped low in the sky. Thunder rumbled in the distance as if to give warning of an approaching storm. i he grand stands on both sides of the football field were tilled to their capacity. On one side waved the Crimson and White banners of La Jolla and on the other side waved the Orange and Black banners of Ensenada. Suddenly the air rang with the uniform yelling of both schools. Both teams came on the field and the crowd went wild. The game began; more cheering; play after play, but no scores on either side. It was near the finish. Jack was not playing his best, and he knew it. His one hope was that he would be allowed to stay in the game until the finish. Two minutes to play. Still scoreless. A loud voice called, “Conrad Paisly, get into the fray. Substitute for Jack Paisly.” A cheer rose for Con. "Eight, Con; fight,” came from Babs. Mr. Montague Paisly watched his son leave the field. He was surprised when Con went in. The play started. It was La Jolla's ball on their enemy's twenty-five yard line. "Signals," came the cry. The answer came, “16—32—4—8—Hip.” The ball shot into the hands of the quarterback. He started through the line; he kept going; Paisly passed him. No one paid any attention to Paisly. They were after the man with the ball. Soon shouts came from the Ensenada rooters: “Get the halfback.” “You’ve got the wrong man.” “Fa'.:e play, get him, he’s going for a touchdown.” When Con passed the quarterback the ball had changed hands, but no one had seen. Con had made the winning touchdown. Score—6-0. La Jolla’s favor. It had taken thirty minutes to fill the grand stands, but they were now emptied in thirty seconds. Con was carried about the field on the shoulders of the students. He was a real hero. La Jolla, with Con's able help, had beaten the unconquerable foe. "Speech, speech," cried the students. “I have nothing to say,” said Con, “except that I wish my mother had been here today.” Jack was sullen. He was happy that La Jolla had won but he wished that he, rather than Con, could have made the touchdown. On the field groups of laughing students were standing about. Over on one side stood Mr. and Mrs. Paisley with Babs and Mr. Canton. "Paisly. I’d like to have a few words with you," spoke Mr. Canton. “Well, what's on your mind?” The two walked toward the college and sat down on one of the benches. "Does this look familiar to you?” 60001923 Mr. Canton handed a letter to Mr. Paisly. In one moment the countenance of Montague Paisly completely changed. He looked twenty years older. “Canton, where did you get this?" At that moment they saw Conrad rush over to Eabs. “Paisly, that young hero is your son.” “My son!" panted Mr. Paisly. "Your son," repeated Mr. Canton. Mr. Paisly in his younger years had married a lovely young 4irl, but soon after the marriage he obtained a divorce and left her. She had no money, and she was not strong enough to work. She wrote to Paisly many times pleading with him to help her. The letter which Canton showed to Paisly was one written by Paisly himself to his wife. In it he told her he would not help her and he wished never to see her again. After that Paisly married again and completely forgot about the woman who had been his wife. Pack home again. Mr. Canton thought it all over. He knew it would be right for Con to live with his own father, and yet he dreaded to part with him. He had no one else in the world. Con must decide for himself. Con did decide for himself. He knew well that his father cared nothing for him. It was merely the pride of having a hero for a son that made Mr. Paisly ask Con to live with him. Conrad Paisly was a sensible young man as well as grateful. He knew his duty and furthermore, after graduation he intended to earn enough to repay Mr. Canton. He had no idea that Mr. Canton had made him a foster son—heir to his estate. Youth calls youth; Babs and Con no longer hid their love for each other. Mr. Canton now guessed Con’s decision, and he was happy. SOLACE Let’s sing! What if again we fail to find Our treasure at the rainbow’s end? There’s more of life to spend in quest! Who knows what lies around the bend? Let’s laugh! What matters sorrow after all If we forget and try once more? Life’s just a restless, troubled sea And we’ll pull bravely for the shore. Let’s smile! And in that smile no bitterness! Let’s sing and in that song no tears! Let’s laugh and in that laugh forget the things That come to all with passing years. —Harry F. Kirk 1923mmmmmMMmmmmmm isiohian DEBATES ’22 The 1922 debating team obtained splendid results, coached by Miss Shepherd. The affirmative team was composed of Gerald Redding, LaTourette Stockwell, and Lathrop Mack, captain. The negative team was composed of Bertha Friedman, Elva Westphal, and Robert Anderson, captain. The question was: “Resolved, that the United States suspend all immigrat'on for ten years.” The negative team won both of their debates with Elkhart and Laportc and although the affirmative team was defeated by Elkhart two to one, much credit must be given them, as they defeated LaPorte at LaPorte, the first Michigan City team to do this in eleven years. Great satisfaction was felt at the outcome of the season. DEBATES ’23 This year’s debating teams were coached by Miss Troutner, who certainly proved her ability in that line. The affirmative team consisted of Lester Dolk, captain; Robert Anderson and Constance Stockwell. The negative team was composed of Charles Beckman, captain: Erma Smith, and Lathrop Mack, The two alternates were Elizabeth Mack and Samuel Haines. The question debated was: “Resolved, that Congress provide for the settlement of disputes in public industries by a commission representing Capital, Labor, and the Public.” The affirmative had no home debates and they were defeated at both LaPorte and Elkhart, though they put up a good fight. The negative team won from LaPorte here by a vote of three to nothing. Constance Stockwell was made a member of the all-star debating team. !OOOOCBOiOO(OOIOiOOK) JfDISCUSSION LEAGUE In the State Discussion League Contest last year the contestants were asked to present a plan for regulating immigration in our country. Michigan City’s representative was LaTourette Stcckwell, who won over the different schools in the county and therefore represented LaPorte County in the district contest at South Bend. At that time she won second place in a close fight for the district honors, and the school may well be proud of its participant. Lester Dolk represented Michigan City this year in the Discussion League Contest and presented a plan for settling disputes in public industries. LaPorte won this contest. ORATORY AND DECLAMATION The contest in Oratory and Declamation in 1922 was especially interesting because of the closeness of the contest and the difficulty to render a decision. Those who took part were Elva Westphal, Bertha Friedman, and Constance Stockwell in declamation; and Robert Anderson, Lester Dolk, and Lathrop Mack in oratory. The final result was that Lathrop Mack with his oration of Theodore Roosevelt’s “The Strenuous Life,” and Constance Stockwell with a selection from “The Melting Pet” were declared the winners. These two represented Michigan City in Gary on May 5. There Constance Stockwell was awarded first place and represented the district in the finals at Plymouth, May 13, where the representative from Warsaw won the gold medal. It was due to the able coaching of Miss Shepherd that Michigan City came out so well.

The play was unusually well attended and is spoken of as one of the best plays ever presented by a Junior class. ooomm «  lstohkuv “THE TAILOR-MADE MAN” Mr. Huber.........Louis J.

Indeed, the whole cast is to be congratulated as each and everyone was especially fitted for his or her particular part. 1923QfTe . £stohicui usie «o®ora)o  THE GLEE CLUB The High School Glee Club, under the capable direction of Miss Cora Nafe, Supervisor of Music, is well known to the people of Michigan City. This is due to the success it has met when appearing before the public, for the Glee Club frequently fills a number on programs given by the various clubs of the city. It is an enterprising organization and early recognized the benefits of a school orchestra. This thought was cherished until it became a reality and we have today the High School Orchestra, fostered by the Glee Club. Each semester a joint program is given and the proceeds divided to buy music, etc. “Patricia,” an opevetta, was the outcome of last year’s joint program. With the assistance of Miss Shepherd as dramatic coach and Miss Sebesta in charge of the dances, it met with great success. Last semester an oratorio, “Fair Ellen,” was produced, ably assisted by Mrs. Carter Manny and Mr. Harry Warkentine, soloists. These two productions served to pave the way to something bigger and better, so this year the Glee Club will present a musical comedy, “Cherry Blossom,” to be given May 4, with the assistance of Miss Reed, dramatic coach. There is no doubt that this production will meet with greater approval than anything yet presented. aBBEHa HIBIlllORCHESTRA First Violins— Marie Klinkenberg Marvin Levenberg Roy Hibner Second Violins— Gladys Hewitt William Killingbeck Constance Stock well Frances Wilhelm Saxaphones— Louis Zeimer Charles Arnt Clarinet— Keeny Jenks Drums— Joseph Stipp Piano— Mildred Seeling Mr. Walter Johnson, Director Perhaps one of the newest organizations of the High School is the orchestra, but not of less importance.

Mr. Johnson and faithful band of musicians have worked long and patiently and as a result we are justly proud of our High School Orchestra. This organization is always ready and willing to entertain us. They have played their way straight into our hearts.

E. Jolly The HI-Y Club is the only honorary club in the high school and has on more than one occasion proved itself to be of great value and influence. Most of the boys in the graduating classes for the last five years have been members of the Hi-Y Club and a large percentage of them have entered college upon completing their high school course. In several instances this ambition for higher education has been traced to vocational talks given before the club by various business men of the city. The “Hi-Y News" is edited and managed by the club. It has been in existence for five years and each year has grown and expanded from a little struggling paper, which barely paid for itself, into a big eight page issue, full of high school news, illustrated with cartoons and elaborate front page cuts. The Hi-Y Club represents the best of the high school. Its membership list has included all of the leaders of the high school those who are an influence for good in the high school and active in its affairs. It has hung up an enviable record and in fulfilling its aim it has done its best to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character.IMIIM ifflowcro THE FORUM One of the interesting, influential, and valuable organizations in the school is the Forum, which has carried on highly successful work since its foundation. The purpose of the club is to invite all those interested in literature and oratory and combine their efforts for the benefit of the school. Meetings are held once every two weeks, when a program is given. At different times throughout the school year the Forum entertains the entire school with an interesting program. This organization also sponsors the High School Debating Teams, the Discussion League Contest and the Oratory and Declamation Contest. This year the membership has been large. The officers during the last semester were Elizabeth Mack, president; Lester Dolk, vice-president; Gladys Williams, secretary; Madeline Goodrich, treasurer. The success of the Forum this year has been largely due to the capable leadership of Miss Troutner. FRENCH CLUB The French Club was organized in 1923. The officers are: Harriet Brink, presi- dent; Thelma Melson, vice-president; Gladys Erickson, secretary, and Gladys Bull, treasurer. The club holds its meetings on alternate Fridays, after school. A program giving the lives of authors, and French games, songs and stories, are enjoyed by the members. The club’s interest centers around a French paper, edited in France. Members of the club also correspond with French scholars. The purpose of the club is to help its members enjoy and improve their French. Miss Luck, teacher of French, is the capable sponsor of the club. Though a majority of its members will graduate with the class of ’23 the younger members will lead this club on to a successfulcareer as an important club in M. C. H. S. COMMERCIAL CLUB The Commercial Club was organized in 1921 at the suggestion of Mrs. Bell, for the purpose of creating greater interest in commercial work. All students taking commercial subjects are eligible to membership. The club meets bi-monthly. At these meetings a program is given furnished by members of the club. Occasionally business men from the city fill a number on the program with a talk on business standards, requirements, etc. After the regular meeting and the program the club enjoys a social hour in which all take part in dancing. The Commercial Club has sponsored several successful mixers, given two plays, and two very pretty Christmas parties. The officers this year are: Robert Nast, president; Canille Jones, vice-president; Dorothea Martin, Waunelia Sights, secretary-treasurer. : 3QO(HK)!0i0i0O0!0?0 1923  Is hicuir LATIN CLUB The Latin Club of M. C. H. S. has for its aim the bringing together at club meetings of all students in the department. Several interesting programs have been given this year. The well-known invective of Cicero against Catiline was presented by the Cicero students. At another meeting the value of Latin to men in all professions was shown. This was illustrated by charts. A Latin play, “Ludus,” is now nearly ready for presentation. Another play, probably “Medicus,” is being prepared for the May meeting. It is hoped at that time to have an evening party for the entire department. The officers of the club for the year are: Consules, Madelene Goodrich, Charles Arnt; Scriba, Jordan Hays; Quaestor, Loren Ritchie. MUSIC CLUB At the suggestion of Miss Nafe, director of Music, many members of the High School who are interested in music organized this year into a club called the Music Club of the Michigan City High School. This organization was started to arouse more interest in music and has thus far been very successful. Its officers are: Robert Nast, president; Margaret Redpath, vice-president, and Madelene Goodrich, secretary. ANCIENT ORDER OF PIONEERS LEST YOU FORGET A record of events is not a true history unless it treats, within its pages, each and every organization that has been vitally instrumental in the making of this history, therefore this little memo. The Ancient Order of Pioneers is not an organization in every sense of the word, nor a fraternity, but truly a brotherhood. Like noble King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table these persevering Pioneers strove to accomplish a single purpose—to graduate if it took until Doomsday. The names appearing on the roll of this knightly order are not soon to be forgotten by their contemporaries £or their prolonged connection with old M. C. High has served to make them as much a part of the institution as the hall radiator or the class-room clocks. There appears on this “Magna Charta” the names of: Charles Graham, a humorist of no mean ability, famed for his irony and satire. Leland Storey, as Abou Ben Adhem would have said, “put me down as one who loves—the ladies.” Hathor Nicholson, who did well at everything, especially poetry. George Warkentine, a delicate little flower so demure and docile. Louis Haller, a social lion whose appetite for pink tea won for him the name “Pinkey.” Lastly, Reynolds Paul, to whom the Order owes its publicity, and who, as a writer, turned out to be a fair steam fitter. The A. 0. of P. here bids you a last farewell. Should our readers be interested in the future activities of the soldiers of fortune you will without a doubt find them discussed in the leading newspapers and periodicals or possibly the Encyclopedia Britannica. —Reynolds Paid. 1923 1 fflBni i u ■ujiraaiias 1923 THE GIRLS’ COUNCIL AND GIRLS’ LEAGUE A dfel The Girls’ Council was organized in November, 1921. It grew out of the desire of the girls to organ'ze after a lecture delivered by Dr. Barker of Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is composed of seven girls, one from each class and three from the school at large, and three members of the faculty. The council members are elected by the girls of the High School. The organization is sponsored by Miss Mellie Luck, Dean of Women. The council represents the girls of the High School and acts upon all important questions relating to them. It was through the council that plans were formulated to furnish a rest room for the girls. A January Mother-Daughter Tea has been made an annual event as well as the Mother-Daughter Banquet which is held in the spring. Parties for the girls are given each month. Girls who offend in the matters of rouge, dress, dancing, etc., are brought before the council to be reprimanded and advised. The aims of the organization are to raise the standard of morals among the girls, to foster a spirit of democracy, and to inspire them with higher ideals. A new council is elected each year and as the work increases new duties and responsibilities are gradually being given to this organization. Its usefulness will undoubtedly increase accordingly. raiiw £ oftia b “Poor Butch” They laid the yell leader away to his rest, And buried him just as he planned, W ith a set of yells pinned on his breast, And a megaphone clasped in his hand.
