PRESS OP EL WOOD CALL LEADER ELWOOD. TND.The President’s Reasons—A Summary in His Own Words The President speaks best for himself. His full address to congress speaks best for him. But here, in extracts from that address, is a summary of the reasons he gives for America's participation in the war: to to to International law had its origin in the attempt to set up some law which would be respected and observed upon the seas where no nation had right of dominion and where lay the free highways or the world. By painful stage after stage has that law been built up with meager enough results, indeed. after all was accomplished that could be accomplished, but always with a clear view, at least, of what the heart and conscience of mankind demanded. This minimum of right the German government has swept aside under the plea of retaliation and necessity. l i to to 1 am not thinging of the loss of property involved. intense and serious as that is. but only of the wanton and wholesale destruction of the lives of noncombatants, men, women and children engaged in pursuits which have always, even in the darkest periods of modern history, been deemed innocent and legitimate. Property can be paid for; the lives of peaceful and innocent people can not be. The present German submarine warfare against commerce is a warfare against mankind. tol to The wrong against which we now array ourselves are not common wrongs; they cut to the very roots of human life. Neutrality is no longer feasible or desirable where the peace of the world is involved and the freedom of its peoples, and the menace to that peace and freedom lies in the existence of autocratic government backed by organized force which is controlled wholly by their will, not by the will of their people. We have seen the last of neutrality in such circumstances. to to to We have no quarrel wth the German people. We have no feeling towards them but one of sympathy and friendship. It was not upon their impulse that their government acted in entering this war. It was not with their previous knowledge or approval. to to to Self-governed nations do not fill their neighboi states with spies or set the course of intrigue t bring about some critical posture of affairs which will give them an opportunity to strike and make conquest. Such designs can be successfully worked only under cover and where no one has the right to ask questions. to to to A steadfast concert for peace can never he maintained except by partnership of democratic nations. to to to Does not every American feel that assurance has been added to our hope for the future peace of the world by the wonderful and heartening things that have been happening within the last few weeks in Russia? to to to One of the things that has served to convince us that the Prussian autocracy was not and could never be our friends is that from the outset of the present war it has filled our unsuspecting communities and even our ofllces of government with spits and set criminal intrigues everywhere afoot against our national unity of council, our peace wtihin and without, our industries and our commerce. Indeed it is now evident that its spies were here even before the war began. to to to We are accepting this challenge of hostil purpose because we know that in such a government, following such methods, we can never have a friends, and that in the presence of its organized power, always lying in wait to accomplish we know not what purpose, there can be no assured security for the democratic governments of the world. to to to We are now about to accept gage of battle with this natural foe to liberty and shall, if necessary. spend the whole force of the nation to check and nullify its pretensions and its power. We are glad now that we see the facts with no veil of false pretense about them, to fight thus for the ultmato peace of the world and for the liberation of its peoples, the German peoples included; for the rights of nations great and small and the privileges of men everywhere to choose their way of life and of obedience. The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the trusted foundations of political liberty.LUCIAN BROWN One of our number, who hearing the first call of Liberty, responded, and is now a member of the Marine Corps. His President ealled, amt with the burning fire of Patriotism in bis soul tic marched forth, great was the loss of his association but. we, the class of 1017, feel proud that one of our members heard tin cry of humanity, and lias thrown his life in sacrifice at the Altar of Democracy. To his magnificent example of manhood with unperishable pride we dedicate tigs annual. -Editor in Chief. Pace 6 THE CRESCENT '17 CM All LOTT K WILI.KIE Editor in Chief.

AND now at this stage of my life I was prone to enter the doors of High School. As I now glance back I can consider this among the important days of my life. Our class had an enrollment of about (it) pupils an exceedingly large number, so large, in fact, that a few of us were placed in study rooms adjacent to the auditorium. School life was no new thing to me. I had just completed eight years of it, but high school life was new. There were so many teachers to become accustomed to, and a different routine to follow. After the entrance and newness of things wore off ,there was but little excitement and a continual grind. Vacations were always a joy and Thanksgiving and Christmas were celebrated in their turn. So much can I say for the first term of my High School career. With the beginning of tin second term's work it was found that the enrollment had decreased somewhat, now being f 0 Minor studies, once so clear and simple confronted us everywhere and algebra was the Waterloo of all. School routine and winter was getting monotonous and the coming of spring was welcomed by all. Spirits rose, school took on a rather different aspect, and weeks and months ew by until the last day of the school year arrived. Then as always, there were disappointments. The cards given out, we boarded a car for Orestes for the annual (‘lass picnic. Long will I remember that enjoyable day. Eats, eats and more eats made it an historical date for all. And now after a summer’s work I was ready to return to school. Perhaps the first- effective thing to take notice of was the large percentage of long trousers. There was lots of teasing among the boys, blit for all that, those who were the proud possessors of the ‘‘long jeers’’ felt a great deal more dignified and did better work. After several weeks of school cam class organization, the event of the year. Officers were chosen and after some little difficulty order was gleaned out of the chaos and we proceeded with business. The first attempt at business was a Halloween party. Looking back I can call it a success for it was a joyful time. The weenies were excellent, as weenis always ar when roasted over a bonfire. It was so much of a success that we existed on it till the term’s work was completed. Perhaps the next term was the most uneventful of all. T can remember nothing « ! interest except the annual picnic, a fitful conclusion of the year. With the coining of the third year there was a sudden new spirit aroused. The new school building was erected and there was some confusion. Indeed it was practically another beginning. But, however, wc soon became accustomed to the building and thing proceeded as before. There was something in the fall which look the eyes of the students and this was football. Recruits poured in for a tryout and a team was finally secured from the mob. Not such a bad team either. Rather a decent representation. And mobs attended the game. We Juniors were rather proud of our representation on the team also. Football season over there came basketball. We had had basket, ball before but our gymnasium was an inducement. Things were going pretty lively now, and with Basket Ball and general good times spring came very rapidly .and with spring came the Senior’s class play. It would be impossible for any student of the time to forget it. It was the first of the Senior class plays and there was never before so much commotion among the Seniors. TheyPage 28 THE CRESCENT 17 were always keeping us on edge and in anti eipation. And when it was finally staged it "as a success. And the auditorium was packed and receipts showed their deficit. With Spring came Base Ball and other sports including Spring fever. As Juniors we felt capable of contracting such a disease. As the time passed on things progressed rapidly and the end cf the school year over only too soon. We celebrated the event with our annual class meeting. 4A CLASS President Ralph Fondersmith Vice President Anna Broyles Secretary-Treasurer Charlotte Willkie The Motto: Life Without Knowledge is Death.

But at. a price not to he scoffed. Eleven steady years of school ing. A Senior's life is a busy life indeed, lie has more outside work and les work pertaining to his daily studies, than he has ever had. The first things of note were tin e lections of the class pins and rings and announcements, and some minor arrangements preparatory to graduation. All this was intermingled with the football schedule. And such a team, the best we had ever had, a team to be proud of. we followed ti with enthusiasm to the end of the season. From then on, our time was divided between preparations for the Senior Class Play and the Basket Ball team. The Basket Ball team was good and so was the Senior play. The Senior Play was a success, the credit of which must fall to our directors, Miss Hieny and Mr. Edwards. Meanwhile there was much preparation for the Senior Class Reception, always the event of the year. Committees for this and that and meetings every night, and sometimes during school hours and every one as busy as bees in the spring time. But things gradually cleared up an devervone was glad when the final preparations were completed. The Reception was one grand success.. And event of a life time, an excellent entertainment and a glorious banquet. It repaid us twofold for the efforts expended and its production. With the reception the activities of a Senior generally expired and we were no exception to this rule except for tin production of the first Crescent Annual which took about three weeks early in the Spring. As a due celebration of our departure we Seniors were received at th Spring Reception in our honor . Senior week followed and then the graduation exercises. 4B CLASS President................

As Freshmen they conducted themselxes very well, making only a few of those errors commonly attributed to beginners. Among their ranks could be found mischiefs to anyone's desire and students who could manage the honor roll. So equipped they started on their journey through High School, on the path pleasant and winding, where roses and thorns grow together. On September 20, 1915 .they entered the new High School building as Sophomores, still a class of eighty-one. In October they organized and elected the following officers to serve for one school year: President, Merrill Hiatt, and Secretary and Treasurer, Charlotte Sneed. Later in the month they elected a Vice President, Charles Harris. This class always votes by standing, a method found to be the most convenient for them. On November 24, occurred their first class party at the home of Elizabeth Broyles on South Anderson Street. About thirty were in attendance and enjoyed themselves as only they could. In December at a meeting of the class, they chose class colors, cream and crimson. A class motto was also discussed but none was agreed upon. The next successful social event of tlm class was their picnic on June 2, 1916. The chaperones were Mrs. Koscoe Hurd, and Mrs. Charles Slick. Dinner was eaten in a true picnic style, while insects, especially spiders, were regarded only by Ruth Barnes, "ho nearly sat on one. A shower in the afternoon did not lessen the fun in the leas.t and they enjoyed the day to the full. 3A CLASS President .......................Charles Harris Vice President Florence Ferguson Secretary-Treasurer Barbara Beeson The Motto: Only Go Forward.

They are Charles Harris, President and Barbara Beeson, Secretary Treasurer. In October it became clear to the class that a clans editor was needed and Maurice Zerfaec was elected to that office. The first class party of the school year was on October 25, at the home of Mirl Slick on South II street. This was a Halloween party, and the house was decorated in cornshoeks, branches, Jack-O-Lanterns, ami Japanese lanterns. The windows were curtained in yellow and black, and the house presented a ghostly appearance to the members of the class, all of whom came masked and were admitted with the password “Spizerinktum.” They then proceeded to the fun. Late in November a hay ride took place. Members of the class and others rode to the ome of Ovid Smith, two miles south of the city, and spent the evening. Byron ness Jones entertained the class at her home on South E Street March 23, twenty-one were present, and all enjoyed themselves. The chaperones were Misses Gwyneth Harry and Ruth Hoiney.

Z-K CHlaBH %iatnrg twentieth of September, 1915, was {Jj, a very important day for the small body of progressive boys and girls, who came from all the surrounding towns and villages to enter K. H. S. Greatly excited and filled with curiosity they entered the building in which they were to spend four years of joyous labor. As soon as the fear of making mistakes and of being laughed at wore off, they began to enjoy high school work. Their diligence all through the Freshman year won for them tile good will of the teachers. After a vacation of three short months they returned to E. 11. S. as Sophomores with the intention of having a year of fun and frolic along with work. A class meeting was held at tin beginning of the term, at which the following were selected as officers: President, How- ard Crouse; Vice President, Nancy Cox; Secretarv and Treasurer, Mary Harrow. The first class party was held at the home of Hazel Sidwell in October. In November the class gave a “weenie ’ roast at Morris Delloritv's home. During Christmas vacation they gave a bob-sled ride out in the country. The mothers of the 2A boys very pleasantly entertained the class at a Valentine party in the Gym. Other successful parties were held at the homes of Jeanette Lewis and Lowell Cochran. The Sophomore basket ball team is very strong and will in time be the first team. There are many good players and all have worked hard to bring up the athletic standard. So you see the Sophomore class is playing one of the leading parts in E. H. S. They are now looking forward with great hopes that next year when they will have the distinction of being called Juniors, will be as successful a year as their Sophomore one has been. 2A CLASS President.................

But the young lady herself, at that moment, presented a picture which corresponded well with her words. Janice Spencer was sitting on the floor of her tiny room, her pretty face Hushed, her curls in tumbled disorder and her eyes tilled with rebellious tears, she had just begun to enumerate her sorrows for the fiftieth time. “It isn’t only that Dau hasn’t money enough to send me to school, but it’s sitting around this poky old place and doing nothing, that is killing me. Now any of the other girls could go to work and make their own money, if it wasn’t anything but clerking in.a store but of course that would be entirely to degrading for a minister’s daughter.” The last words were spoken in a high voice in imitation of Deacon Brown’s wife. “And just when Professor Harlan had spoken so highly of my picture. If I couldn’t paint it wouldn’t he so bad, but when 1 can—and that isn’t bragging, because good ness knows, his praises are hard enough to obtain. If 1 could only go to Art School— but I suppose I’ll have to mope around here for the rest of my life, unless I’m driven to advertise for a husband, Oh, dear.” With this, Janice’s voice trailed off and finally ended in convulsive sobs. “Oh, Janice!” came her mother’s voice from down stairs. “Oh mercy,” cried Janice, ‘Tve been crying.” “Yes, mother.” “I wish you’d go up to the attic for me and bring down a package you’ll find in that old bureau of grandfather’s.” “All right mother,” said Janice, starting toward the attic stairs. The Spencer attic was a store-room seldom entered except when something was required from it, consequently it contained a great store of miscellaneous articles many of which had belonged to Mr. Spencer’s father, who had formerly resided there. Janice opened the first, drawer of the bureau and found the package her mother desired. Wondering what else the old piece of furniture contained, she tried to open the next drawer, but for some reason or other it stuck. Exerting all of the force of her strong young arms, she pulled the drawer open and saw that a piece of paper had fallen from where it had been caught between the top of the drawer and the bottom or the one above it. Janice picked up this paper and to her intense surprise, saw that it was a sealed envelope, yellow with ag» and addressed to herself. With trembling fingers, she opened it and eagerly read: “My Dear Granddaughter: 1 do not know how old you will be when you read this, I am leaving the finding of it entirely to providence, but I hope that you will be about eighteen. You are so small at the time this is written, that it is impossible to tell much about your talents or inclinations. You had two aunts as youELWOOn HIGH SCHOOL Page 39 probably know, who showed very artistic temperaments, but they both died at the age of eighteen, so could not have the advantages of training, which I had planned to give them. Now, as I do not believe your father will be in a position to send you to school I want you to use the money which ] am enclosing, solely in obtaining an education, and it would please me greatly if you should wish to enter the Smith Art School in Boston, since this is the institution to which I had planned to send my daughters. With love, Grandfather.” For some moments, Janice was so daz ( d, that she could do nothing except read the letter over and over, but finally it's meaning penetrated her mind. She rushed down stairs and gaspingly tried to tell her mother of her discovery, but excitement had rendered her quite inarticulate and finally she handed the letter to her mother. When Mrs. Spencer finished reading it, her eyes filled with tears, because she had long before guessed the secret of her daughter’s unhappiness, although Janice had bravely tried to hide it. “I can’t tell you how happy ] am, for you, Janice,” she said. “1 am sure you will succeed and you have earned this reward through your bravery.” “Oh, mother! Wasn’t it lucky I opened that drawer?” cried Janice, too happy to say more just them. An American tBmt OIIN Willys started his career at splitting wood for his neighbors to get money enough to buy a second-hand bicycle. lie could not afford to pay money to get his wheel repaired, so he repaired it himself. Soon John saw a chance to earn a little money. He set up a repair shop in the rear of his home woodshed and did a flourishing business. When John made a promise as to when the work would be done, his promise was kept. As he grew older he took a position in a hardware store in Kim ire, N. V. One year later he had saved enough money to buy a share in the store, and later ho bought the store. He started selling automobiles. Then he sold his store in order that he might give all his attention to the sale of machines. He handled the agency for a good make. Next he asked for the lr. S. agency, but was declined. Mr. Wiilvs agreed to buy the entire output of the factory, and began at once to establish agencies throughout the country. The factory was always behind in orders, hence failed; without delivering two hundred cars which Mr. Wlily had promised, and without money enough to pay the men Saturday night. Then Mr. Willys took the business in his hands. He got credit and bought two large circus tents, which were used as machine shops. The business expanded rapidly and before the end of the year he hail paid all the debts and was making money. Mr. Willys is now turning out automobiles at the rate of one thousand per day. He is now a little past forty and is a multimillionaire.

I, Helen Cox, do hereby tie vise and bequeath to tin 4B class one of my most priceless, yet most troublesome possessions, which may prove an obstacle to some still in necessity if each is to acquit himself honorably next June. That is to say, my aunt, Alary Elizabeth, of the family of Cox, commonly known in thsee parts as Miss Cox. Four long years have I watched over her and tried to guide her into the straight and narrow path of leniency. I have tried to induce her not to give such examinations that leave us feeling like parlor tables scoured with Old Dutch Cleanser. I have protested and expostulated against her standing some one on his feet and slyly ensnaring him with questions until he feels like a Hy in a sea of sorghum molasses. Time and again I have remonstrated against the prodigious number of maps to be made in one short week. I have commanded her not to soil her grade book on Monday mornings. Thus have I done, yea, even more, but all in vain. Only treat her well and tho 1 have used her thru all my High School life, tho marked by hard usage she is still as good as new, and if cared for properly she will still last several years. 2. I, Mabel Rose, do bequeath my timidity of temper which I think will not be injurious to the fine (?) temperment of Mr. Leo Frances. 3. 1.

Let no court break this. 5. 1. Leah Price, do bequeath to Miss Georgia Tcnnysee Wilhelm in my will. She is an honorable member of the 4B class of E. 11. S. and a talented member of our highly prized orchestra, being noted for her well developed talent in first violining. Miss Wilhelm is also widely known for her driving of the Ford car and it is well remembered how she tore the bumper off another car in the foot ball parade last fall, this being a feat of remarkable daring. We can scarce- ly be surprised if some happy day we come across her happy face on tin sporting page among the world’s famous record racers, or even better, we may see it in a Bathe Weekly in any leading picture house. To Miss Wilhelm 1 hereby give what she justly deserves, Miss Dorothy Probst’s claim on Bob Dcliority. That is on condition that her four usually present fever ulcers must have disappeared by the time my will is probated. To the most honorable Prof. Hall, whom tin class would have liked to have with us longer, I, Leah Price, bequeath my consent to his using that variety of violet perfume of unknown name but of unquestionable strength of scent which In persists in using. May tin memory of our class, be to all as lasting as his ever-lasting perfume. To Mr. Honorable Boyd Cochran, I heartily wish to dispose the vast amount of burdensome knowledge of the theory or history of evolution, which I have obtained thruout these eighteen weeks. ( .

Moist curls framed her face. Her breath came in quick little gasps from tin exertion caused by moving heavy chests and boxes of various shapes and sizes. In one of the most mysterious old trunks she found a small chest. The lock was rusted away and inside were papers, yellow with age: flowers, crumbling to dust, visible reminders of days gone by; and a small bundle of newspaper articles and an old diary which wen neatly tied with a white ribbon now falling to pieces. The child’s eyes sparkled with delight as she read the diary and noticed each little article which pertained to some boy or girl who had graduated from Elwood High School in the class of 1917—clippings, which her aunt had saved with great, care.

Sasaij nn tiuiratinn In most cases these days one finds on close observation that nearly seventv-ftve per cent of the coming generation: young men and young women under the age of twenty-one who are found working in factories, business houses and homes do not have a High School education. And in nearly all cases these boys and girls are classed as common laborers. If is true there is a necessity for laborers, but why should the young men of today, the old men of tomorrow, still be laboring with out advancement, because of lack of practical knowledge to be gained in the high schoolt In the first place they arc not too dull to Jearn and go through school, but they lack will power to stick to the subject that is hard. Second they could go on but other boys and girls, their chums, are quitting and getting “jobs. ’ Why shouldn’t they? they can make more money at the present but how about later on when their fellow ktmlcnts who have taken advantage of tile high opportunities and have retired or are living on a modest income, a result of their education? Then those who did not take advantage will still be toiling from morning till night. In nearly three cases out of five, positions of more or less responsibility are filled by graduates of high schools. It is a help, not an injury, so every one should have a high school education and learn preparedness in knowledge as well as in war. —HOWARD HERXIJEY.Pago 44 THE FRESHIE •Then a goodly number of Presides came in, Every one wanted to know where all we'd Iim n.

This was the only home for a little girl and her father. They tilled the soil, hunted and lived happily. The little girl proved herself a cunning little house-wife and was worshipped by her daddy. One evening in the summer as the tinted rays of the sun peeped above the hills the little girl and her father sat on the door step, and the father told his daughter how her mother had died when she was yet a baby and they had always lived in this same place. They watched the tired birds go to rest and listened intensely to the crickets and the owls. Finally the little girl was lulled to sleep by nature’s music and lay dreaming on their old-fashioned bed. Later in the evening the father was grasped by the hand of death and died suddenly. The next morning the little girl awakens and wanders about, not old enough to realize her father has gone to meet her mother. All day long she wanders among the hills and oflwers. As evening dawned she was found by a band of Gypsies. She found companionship among them, and having no place to go she stays with them. They knew not her name so called her “Gypsie.” Years rolled on and Gypsie grew to be a young lady and loved the outdoors and delighted to live in her home of nature. One day while they were camping two young men came and asked Gypsie to read their future. She was attractive and beautiful. One of the fellows noticed her very much, she felt strangely in love with him, and when she told his fortune she told him lie was soon to meet a young girl whom he would love dearly and she would make a happy home for him. lb left and each dreamed of the other.

The credit lor tin showing of the team goes to our coach, Mr. Coehian, who through his skill and knowledge of the game taught the fellows to play real football. The season began with a home game, Nobles- ille being our opponents. No scores were made until the second quarter when the fellows began to cut loose. When the game finally ended everyone in the backfield had scored. Drake had made a 90-yard run for a touchdown through the entire No blesville team, and “Fat’’ scored after a brilliant 10-yard run, that afternoon. Kirkiiu was the next team who got a walloping to the tune of 6-0. Drake put the ball over early iu the game and although El wood was twice more within a yard of Kirklin’s goal, no other scoring was done. Wabash proved to be our Waterlool and the team was defeated for tin first and last time. The day was little suited and the field was wet and muddy. In the first five minutes of the game Elwood carried the ball across the line for a touchdown but lost it on a fumble. This discouraged and disor ganized the team ami before they got together again Wabash had won, the final score being 21-0.

With but a few minutes left to play, I locker made one of his sensational runs around end and plowed the ball on Brownsburg’s fifteen yard line. From here it was pushed over the line and Elwood was the victor in one of tin closest games ever played on the home field. The Alumni game was almost as exciting as the Browns-burg game. The two teams were evenly matched and graduates making up in weight what they lacked in team work and practice. Early in the game Val intercepted a pass and dodging several tackles ran the entire length of the field for a touchdown. The spectacular tackling of Drake kept the Alumni from scoring and the game ended 6-0. On December 14th, a banquet was given the members of tlie team by C. L.
