We have gladly and willingly labored long and hard to put forth our very best and give to this school something of which it may he proud in later years. And as the years glide aw ay this toil and labor of the past will remain only as a pleasant memory. At this time we are engaged in a great strife which has called away manv of our numbers and will probably call a great many more, and. as those who have already gone have felt it a duty to go. we ourselves feel that it is right and also a duty to give them honorable mention in tiiis volume. We. as Seniors, take great pride in being able to graduate and bearing away with us honors from the Elwood High School. May this school . ver he in as high standing as it is at present, ‘ami when The silver cord is broken and the chains that bind are severed,’ may our minds live on the pleasant days spent in the E.

Just recently our school was overshadowed by his severe attack of pneumonia. He is fast recovering and we hope will soon be able for duty again. LEWIS BRI CE “Lew,” another of our hoys who exchanged serge and pinch-backs for a suit of khaki. He is now in one of the training camps training with an ambulance corps. If you wish to know more about him just ask “Madelon.” RAY LEWIS If Ray goes “Over the Top” with the vim and determination with which he “punches the line” in football, the Huns will have reason to fear. He heard the call of his country for men and enlisted last fall.Pago 16 E. H. S. CRESCENT ’IS PAUL ARMSTRONG We would never have gotten through English if it hadn’t been for Paul’s serious study of the Allegory. ELIZABETH BROYLES Our dark-eyed little Betty is a country lass and is very quiet and demure until you know her. BARBARA PERSON “Bobby” is one of the nicest girls in E. H. S. She is never met but what she greets" you with a smile. She is now unsettled as to what to do. whether to become a housewife or go on to college. C'LTFFTON BERRY “Bud” is considered an infallible authority on the ladies. Perhaps that is one reason why he shows such a decided aversion to leaving high school.E. II. S. CRESCENT ’18 Page 17 ADA1I BROADBENT "Broady” is a jolly sort of a girl. as shown by her pushing flow of conveisation. which goes to show that she will probably be a prominent lawyer before long. LAWRENCE BULL Though you wouldn’t think it. Lawrence is the boy that can make em laugh. Ife is also another one of our Physic stars. HAZEL BROWN “Brownie” tried several different high schools but has now sel icted our dear old E. H. S. from which to receive her diploma. We expect to soon see her name among the leading literary genius of the day. Her ready smile and friendly manner makes her a favorite among us. ED CHAPMAN "Ed” sure made a good yell master and the only fellow in the class who could successfully argue Physics.Pago 18 K. H. S. CRESCENT '18 JAY CLARKE .lay is noted for his ties, good-looking car and slv ways, which i n tin objects of many E. II. S. girls’ gaze. SHERIDAN CLYDE “Shindy” h ft a good n jmta linn behind him when In hit K. II. S. at the end of the first semester. Ih was one of the most efficient members of th • basket ball bun and at tin reception his name was among those who had pledged to help Elide Sam. VIOLET CLOSZ "SVe will ever have inlet in our thoughts as one who could look sober, as a judge, and vny studious when eaught whispering. A little person but lots of brains. EMILE COTTON Emile is one cf our most excellent students, lie is especially not°d for his ability to untangle knotty problems in Physics and Solid Geometry.E. H. S. CRESCENT ’18 Tage 19 JOHN WHITKAMPER Just ask John a question on any hook exeept his text hook ami he will t« l) yon instantly. If all literary knowledge he has stored up. ever begins to flow forth he will startle the world ns a second “ l c-mosthcncs ROBERT DeHORITY “Bob' is our business like Business Manager of tin Annua). Net much sentiment there, hut lie excels in practical things Arithmetic , for example. BLANCH DIGEL Here is one of our best known Senior girls. Her winning smile Mid cheerful countenance have endeared her to the hearts of all. GLADYS DOWNS If we can judge by her former works, Gladys intends to become a lawyer. At least it was she who drew up the will for her class which left E. II. S. in January. Let us hope that her remarks will always bo to the point as they were in this will.Taco £0 IS. H. S. CRESCENT 18 WALDO DOWNS Tubby" always furnished the class with plenty of lausrhter and the girls with all kinds of candies especially “kisses.’’ RlTRY KPLEY Ruby is always in for a good time and time does not lag when she is around. She is also an excellent student a shining Latin star. WALTKR KDMONDS “Slop's" special pastime and amusement is kidding our leach-el's of the fairer sex. He was on both the football and basket ball squads in iiis .lunior and Senior ears. LEONA FAT 11 Leona is a very serious girl, who seems to have lots of trouble of her own.E. H. S. CRESCENT ’18 Page 21 FLORENCE FEROUSON “Kali ,” as she is known to her intimate friends, is one of our most diligent classmates. She is one of the few who seldom get called in the assembly for having too much fun during study periods. LENA FRYE Lena deceives her quiet looks as most of the teachers can testify, yet her good nature compels the admiration of all. Sin made a very pretty little peasant girl in the class play WEBSTER FERGUSON “Wcbh” has lived on a farm all his life but since entering high school he has taken up with the drug business and we think perhaps he will soon be connected with Sneed's. LILLIAN WEIDNBR I rnly she has a sarcastic tongue and many have felt the effects of it. Just the same we appreciate Lillian’s shrewd speeches and her ready wit.Pape 22 E. H. S. CRESCENT 'IS MAl’DK HANCOCK Although she will not admit it we all know Maude likes the male sex pretty well. Also she is a wonder at working difficult physics problems. GARLAND UARBIT One of those numerous students who believe that where ‘ignorance is bliss. tis folly to be wise.” At any rate In would rather think up a good joke than study any day. ORPIIA HANCOCK Orpha is interested in soldier boys, especially those who wear kilties. CHARLES HARRIS “Chug.’! the noted boy of E. 11. S. He was captain of our basket ball team and also starred in the class play. We are worried about him because he says that he has a serious question to ask one certain person and he hasn’t tin heart, and it is impossible for any of us to ask the question.E. H. S. CRESCENT ’IS Page 23 HOWARD IIEKSITEY ‘ Ilershev ’’ is one of our town fnrmets. Hi lias taken a full course in agriculture and now can't remember how to harness a team. MERRILL HIATT ‘ Mike” is our ctTieient President of the Ecclcsia.” He has also served in that capacity for the class. From all indications he •'ill he a politician or a lawyer. Put we ha e Ins word for it that next winter he intends to teach sehool. We wish this experience to be a successful one. KENNETH (lORI)ON. ‘•Dutch” is not a Herman, despite his name. If you have any doubt as to this fact, just come up to Assembly Four and see Ids popularity among the Senior girls. RITI1K IHXKLE Not "one vast smile, ’ but all smile nevertheless, and very winning, especially with country boys. We think she intended to teach at first, but that someone has persuaded her otherwise.Page 24 E. H. S. CRESCENT 18 M ABEL HOPP ■ I loppy ” (usually) is all Smiles and full of life. Alas! What has caused her smile to fade Listen! Sheridan has left to become a 1 due-jacket. That’s the reason. (OKA IIOITZ She is another of our class who left E. II. S. at tin end ol the first semester. Her cheerfulness and good nature have won a place for her in the hearts of all the students. RUTH HOBBS c‘Ruthie!’ will always he remembered by Iter classmates as a jolly girl always ready for a good time. However her life was saddened some time ago when ‘‘Dutch” moved to Indianapolis, but, never mind Ruth, he’ll come hack some of these days.E. H. S. CRESCENT '18 Page 25 doris firm) “I)o»ls" is both tlie joy and despair of all tlu teaehers. With- nt her original expression in French, it Mould sure be a dull old lass. LIU IAN JOHN Lillian is noted for her eurls and large,towering hair ribbons. EDYTII K ARC 11 Kdyth is another of those who would rather be seen than heard. However, we are told that in Virgil" she seemed more Milling to talk than elsewhere. DAISY JONES Poets sing of the modest daisy. Our Daisy is just as modest and unassuming. Just ask her the definition of “DeiL”Pape 2f, E. II. S. CRESCENT ’18 OTTO KEITH Most noted for his shell-tex spectacles and his soldierly walk. Although a lively fellow wo have little hopes of him being married soon. ARNOLD KTRTZ Kurtz hails from Perkinsvill but. you would never know it froi the classy clothes he wears. HELEN KESLER Helen is one of our Senior girls who is taking Domestic Science, •lust what this implies we do not know. Perhaps this accounts for her being undecided as to the future. RYRON LANE “Fat ’ was one of the best na-tuied “guys in high school and when he left our numbers in January he was greatly missed.E. H. S. CRESCENT 18 Par© 27 DONNIE LE(1(1. Donnie, you ©harmed us all with your acting as the Merry Cricket in the play. We see your future as a movie star. NORA LEVITT She is one of our Seniors who joined our numbers last fall. She i: a quiet country lass and as usual very timid and bashful. SIDNEY LEWIS “Fat” or Sid is the third in the line of the Lewis football stars. lie has upheld I lie honor of the name, being our last captain and a member of the all stat • team. CEHTKl'DE LYST (eM ti ude is probably one of the quietest girls in E II S. Although she is greatly missed as a student, we believe that she will make oio of the best Latin teachers in the state within a short time.Faso 28 K. II. S. CRESCENT 18 KDNA McCAREL Wo have our suspicions that Edna intends to become either a movie astress or a hail dresser. We think this is why she tries to fix h-r hair like that of the girls on magazine covers, with those coquettish little rings in front. HOWARD McCLCRB Alack." as Miss Cox said, is the petted son of a wealthy farmer. He is very popular with the girls probably because of Ids Buick roadster. BLANCHE "MALEY Blanche is one of the busies girls in high school, at least, sh seems to be busy. She always ha a smile for everyone and is a pre i,lining kindergarden teacher. RAI L MILLER “Pug ’ is a wonder at expounding historical -vents making them dignified and impressive with voids of uihisiih11 excessive length.E. 11. S. CRESCENT '18 Pa see 29 MADGE MINOR Madge is a little girl but is capable of making scores of friends. She has left our high school, but we still have many thoughts of her. WILDER MORGAN A glance at Wilbur’s neat clothes calls for a second look at bis attractive appearance. Although many inviting glances are bestowed upon him, bis affections are for Laura alone. CLARK E MOORE The “pretty Madclon” of our class play. Her charming ways and lovable nature makes her a favorite among her classmates. ETIDORPHA NEWKIRK “Dorph” is always ready for a good time. We do not wonder at her popularity among our society Senior hoys.Pago so E. H. S. CRESCENT 'IS EDNA PARSONS ‘•Ted” is known to all of u and liked very much. Her Jolly pood nature has pained for her th honor of being one of the mos popular girls in the class. Th iiest wishes of the class go wit her when she leaves E. H. S. SARAH N1VISON Sarah is from the south, just arriving last fall and it is real amusing and entertaining to sit and listen to her interesting story of the South. ELSIE NORRIS We are told that Elsie does not believe in the charms of single blessedness. Perhaps that accounts for her having dates with so many ditTefTrent fellows to see which she likes the best.E. IT. S. CRESCENT ’18 Page 31 IVA PRAIM Iva, the girl who handled 11m money and secretary’s affairs of the fall class of ‘IS. She also gave the staff of tin ‘‘Crescent” much assistance. EVELYN RICHARDS A very pretty and pins girl is Evelyn. She was the pride of the English class and is liked very much by her classmates and teachers. NTT A REIGEL A rustic lass: and therefore a very efficient housekeeper. Although you are efficient in more than one thing, let us warn you. Nita, that Picketts are easy to get ‘‘hung” on. GOLDIE SEARCY A very quiet girl indeed but very studious, she has spent four years with us and has made •many friends during this time. itPage 32 E. 11. S. CRESCENT ’IS LEONARD SAITER “Doe” is our pood natured cartoonist. We are all expecting to s« c liis fancy signature on the ••artoons of a leading newspaper in a short time. MTRTj slick ‘ And still the wonder grew, that one small head could carry all she knew.” She knows music, can write poetry, novels or essays, one of the best in Physics and no limit to her knowledge of History, German. Latin or French. She is an artist, knows the dictionary by heart, and expects to know most of the Bible by the time school is out. CHARLOTTE SNEED Of course, we wouldn't wai her to look that way all the tim but she certainly made a got “witch” in the Senior class pla She also won the school contest the Discussion League this sprin VIVIAN STARR Vivian is one of our two Senior “Stans '' and just as her name implies sin- is rather silent, only occasionally permitting us to get a glimpse of the talkative side of her nature.R. II. S. CURSOR NT 18 Page 33 DOROTHY STARR “ Dorothy" is a now addition to our (lass, having come just this winter. Hut sin i easy to get •m |i ainled with and lias made many friends already. VAL STEIOLITZ “Buck’’ is a shining star of our class. Besides being president l our elass. captain of tile football team and member of last year’s basket ball team, be starred as the “Old Man” in Esmeralda and as “Landry” in the “Cricket.” Jle is one of our most popular boys —especially among the girls. MARY STOKES Mary is our never failing standby when we sing popular music in 1 he auditorium. Just what use she intends to make of her musical talent is not known but we would not be surprised to hear of ln»r as a future artist along this line, PA CL STEWART regular ladies’ man and although In has not yet succeeded in winning the little country girl on which his'affections seems to be centered, we are sure he will be victorious before many months have passed.Pnpre 34 R.

We wonder ii she is also studying home economics. If the latter is true, one can easily imagine the result. MARTHA WIl SON We do not know whether Mar tha intends to become a dress maker or an ambulance driver However, just at present she scent to be experimenting in “high collars ? and “mannish attire, sc you see she is undecided as to the luture.

FRANK WARNER ‘ Prank” is a wonder, when he wrs a Freshie we never expected to see him a Senior because we thought he would soon enter married life.

CRESCENT ’18 MARCS A RET WILLIAMS Margaret belongs to that bunch of students who have to rid theni-selvis of superfluous energy in some way, so sin plays basket ball. Also we believe that she could write quite an interesting pamphlet on "The Art of Missing Trains.” THELMA WEBB ‘“Hobby” as her friends all cal her, is somewhat of a Tomboy am can imitate anything when sh-t rics. AMY WILLIAMS “Amy,” your cheerful disposition ami hearty laugh which often rings through the corridors will long be remembered by your old friends in E. II. S.E. II. S. CRESCENT 18 Page .17 History of Mid-Year Class of ’18 I February. 1914, the illustrious 1A mid year class of 1918, entered high school. After the manner of all Freshmen they eventually became capable of finding their wav about the building and soon settled down to their work. Tr. September, when they became lA's, thov were given seats in the big esscmbly room, which was used for seating all pupils in the old building, and they considered themselves quite grown-up and dignified. Soon after the new term started in February, 1915. a meeting was held and the class was organized. The officers elected were; President. Val Steiglitz; Vice-President, Howard Baker; Secretary and Treasurer, Clarice Moore. The colors, old rose and silver, were selected as class-colors. Soon after this the first class party was given at the home of Goldie Seareey. Tn September. 1915, they entered the new building as 2A’s. At a meeting held during tli's term, Val Steiglitz was re-elected President. Helen Steele was elected Vice-Presi-dnt and Cora Houtz, secretary and treasurer. In November a class party was given at Ih home of Byroncss Jones. This affair was so well attended that the hostess was forced to admit that she was sorry she couldn't entertain the whole high school. In the first part of the third year, activities of the class as a whole were not very numerous, although each member felt the necessary dignity which devolved upon him as a Junior. During the 3A term, officers elected were: President Val Steiglitz; Vice President, Leone Fe.tl:: Secretary-Treasurer. Tva Praim. In January. Ruby Eplev entertained the class at a partv, which was chaperoned bv Miss Willkie. Soon after the 4B term started, preparations were begun for the Spring Reception, which s» emed. of course, the Big Event in each one’s high school life. Officers for this semester were the same as for the preceding one. During the first part of the 4A term, class affairs were not very frequent each member Ivuug too busy trying to pull through to trouble himself with frivolities. On January 11 high school life ended for all those not intending to take post-graduate work, nol including those poor unfortunates whose attendance was required .during Senior week. On January 17, the last parts of this congenial class was given in the high school gymnasium, chaperoned by Miss llarvev and Hiss Harry. Wouldn't life he worth living If all E. H. S.

Wiley, Joe Fields. 4A Class History Why. one day, ’way a long, long time ago. When all of us were very young, you know. Ourselves a motley crowd of Freshmen came To go to high school, and perchance, win fame. Full green we were, and our mistakes not few. And many a roasting fell to our lot too. But never once did we complain or fret (?) Models cf goodness we were (") as we are yet (?) Both boys and girls played hookey and chewed gun. Ate candy, talked in school, wrote notes for fun. Disturbed the teachers precious peace of mind: And then for other naughty pranks we pined. So time sped on till last of May was near. And In high glee we closed our Freshman year. And then, when we could Freshmen be no more We stepped into the joy of Sophomore. We organized and got a president. And then on having parties we were bent. Elizabeth Broyles entertained us first. But Waldo doesn’t care: he did It worst. For on the night of that long-looked-for stroll The rair and mud brought sorrow to our soul: And only a few boys went, unafraid Right on thru mud. and until midnight stayed. TIk picnic came on the last day of school, O’ What a time we had!! We played the fool To everyone’s content, and parted there To take a rest and meet again next year. A Junior1” Ah. the very sound Inspires! "Ar. tipper classman!" We were climbing higher. Merrill, president, gave up his place To Chug, the former vice; our Charlotte too l ot Barbara take the secretary's place And Florence our vice president we chose. A party then we had near Hallowe’en That ghostly time when elves and sprites are seen Coset to, our hoc tees, caled for the password And "Spitzerlnktum" whisperings were heard. A little later came our first hay ride. To Ovid Smith’s; he lived just south of town About two miles, and all who took the slide Said Ovid sure did everything up brown. In. late March, 3A party at the home Of one of our classmates. Miss Bvroness Jones, A royal good time, some games, a bowl of punch. And what was best, a very jolly bunch. On April 20tli. we had a s'roll North down the pike, and when we reached our goal, John ' V. proceeded to show us once for all That ho could entertain both short and tall. The second annual picnic then came up With the last day of school, and an auto truck We piled in and went eleven miles away And gave our tired selves up to the glorious day. Our Junior year over, wo Seuiors became Wo all tried our best to live up to the name. Our president. Barney, and Charlotte our vice, With Bet for our secretary. Oh! how nice! We had a fine hayride to Bab’s, six miles south. Those pickles; those weenie! our puckored-up mouths When we ate them, we surely will never forget. And the ride there and back: we can think of it yet. '’’hen the Senior reception, that terrible night When we froze ears and nose, and the wind was a fright. But w« nearly all went; and we nearly all said. When we went to go home "Oh. if I were in bed." But it was a good time, and we’re all living still And of working and study are getting our fill. In March one Friday at eventide Ruthe Hinkle of Elwood’s near countryside Had the 4A's out for a frolic and fun. And the desired result was obtained when begun. We’ve had four years together, this wonderful class. And now we are thinking "Now just who will pass?"Page 40 E. H. S. CRESCENT 18 Prophecy of Mid-Year Class of 18 Elwoocl, Tnd., May 25, 1927. My Dear Bonnie Legg: You will doubtless be surprised to hear from me after so long a time, but I happened to realize the other day that il has been just ten years since the class of 1918 of El-wood high school was making frantic preparations for the Senior reception, so 1 decided to take it upon myself to find out as nearly as possible, what each member of our class has been doing during these ten years. I was very fortunate in my quest, because I happened to meet. Sidney Lewis, who, in Ins many travels, lias seen nearly every member of tin class and was able to tell me something about each one. Of course, I suppose you know what Sidney is doing, because Lowell Waymire and he have become very famous in their travels through the country as advertisements of “Before and After Taking,” for Yal Steiglitz’s patent medicine, called “Cures All.” I could never have imagined Val doing anything in that line, but he certainly has made a success of it and is now one of the really rich men of the class. nothcr one whom I suppose you already know about is Ruby Eplcv, who could never be instructed 0,1 any point whatsoever. Now, she is conducting a bureau of “What is What and Why ’ which was especially designed for and is of invaluable aid to teach- ers in doubt. But this is only a secondary source of lame to Ruby, since at present she is one of the most talked-of women in America. h ‘cunse of her renowned bedate in congress with Ed.vth Kareh, who is the representative from our district. But Emih Cotton is assuredly the most eminent member of our class—not only in the I’nited States, but throughout the who!. world. Because you know it was he, who invented the submarine destroyer by means of which Germany was conquered and the world war brought to a close. Great honors have been heaped upon him by all nations and he lias finally accepted an honorary chair in one of the largest universities of France. Several of our old classmates are still in El wood. There is Gertrude Lvst. who is supervisor of music in the new high sehool. and Leone Fath. who is the Domestic Science teacher. Pearl Tranbarger is teaching Latin and Cora Houtz teaches English. Oh yes, Etidorpha Newkirk visited El wood a short time ago. You know h« i ambition was always to be a popular motion picture actress and she lias certainly attained her desire, because it is said that no other n ovi« ’ actress, unless it is Mary Pickford, has ever had so many admirers. She told me that the only reason she has remained Miss Newkirk is because she has been unable to find a man who answers all of her requirements, wbirh are the same as in high school days, namely: that he be tall and handsome and that be possess a large machine, a pinch-back and lots of money. Garland Harbit is the well-known com • ■dial: with the Lane-Searcy Harbit Vaudeville Tmnpr. Goldie plays the piano and Byron does fancy dancing. Of course you know that Hay Lewis woti the world championship in the International automobile races for 1926, and now he can truly be called a speed king. Howard Ifershey, h is mechanician, who deserves quite a share of his glory, was also a member of our class. L wis Bruce is :i great surgeon and al-!hough it is said by other members of hi profession tha ta great number of his fair patients go to his hospital, not so much oil pnnt of any ailment, but rather because • !’ the attraction.

Perhaps you can tell me whether or not there is any truth in the rumor that sir is now Mrs. Lewis Bruce. Of course everybody has long been expecting this announcement, buf as yet the rumor lias not been eon-firmed. You probably remember what beautiful erochetting Violet Closz used to do when w were in high school. Well, now the los . crochet patterns are known far and wide ami Violet has built up quite a reputation for herself. Helen Wallace is one of America’s most noted artists of the piano, having played before all the courts of Europe. The sovereign appreciation of her talent has been shown by the numerous medals which have been presented to her. Walter Edmonds is a great ithletc. at present playing on the Giant's team. II says that he owes a great deal of liis success to his training in high school athletics. Amy Williams is a candidate for go r-nor of Indiana on tin 1 Women's Independent Ticket’ and Jav Clarke »s her campaign manager. Amy plaees great confidence in Jay ami she told me that sin expected to ! elected by a large majority, because of Jay’s excellent stump speeches in her behalf. Sheridan Clyde is a prominent lawyer in Chicago, ami Etidorpha, who sees him quite often, told me when she was home that he is as much of a lady fusser as ever. Well. I believe that is all T know and anyway you are probably tired of reading this lengthy epistle; besides.

CRESCENT ’18 Prophecy of the Spring Class of 1918 One day T said to my husband, that I guessed he and the children could keep house and keep the dog: and cat from quarreling, and I believed I’d make a tour and visit the members of the old class of 'IS. It had been twenty years since we graduated ami I wondered what they were all doing. He said very well, go on. and it would do me good and keep my imagination from running away with my tongue, or my tongue with my imagination, I don’t know which. So I got ready to go, and since I didn't want to go alone T went to see my friend. Mrs. Sheridan Clyde, Jr., and ask her to go too. Mable consented, and I was glad to start with another member of our class. 1 told Mabel not to forget her case of chewing gum. We went in my automobile and tin first place we stopped was at a com fori ah! • farm house, owned by Elwood's most prosperous farmer. Waldo Downs. He talked about the corn crop and spring plowing, till Mabel's gum. keeping time, nearly choked her, and we made our departure. We called on John Wittkamper, who also laid claim to the honor of being Elwood’s most prosperous farmer, and later on Merrill Hiatt, a prominent citizen of the city of Leisure, with whom we talked shop. lie was the proud owner of a new 1938 model Ford, whose good qualities he was never tired of describing. Mabel and T both grew tired of Ford talk and traveled on. Our next stop was at Kokomo. We went into a fine cafe and the waiter who served our dinner we recognized as Lawrence Hull. Tie told us he had once decided to be a blacksmith, hut a friend told him of the money to be made ‘‘slinging hash,’ so he tried that and liked it so well that lie’s been there ever since After dinner we went on a shopping tour. In one of the hook stores we noticed a volume of poems entitled “Love Lyrics ar.d Other Poems,” by the popular author. Paul Armstrong. This was the latest work of our one-time classmate, so we bought a copy. The wind blew my hat off so we visited Williams’ millinery. Margaret was glad to s»v us and supplied my need quickly. She was an experienced modiste and said she en joyed tiiis kind of life because of her love of dress. We drove slowly on through town, and discovered conspicuous signs all about us: “Big Prize Fight Tomorrow, John (Jarrigus vs. Kenm th Oorden. Don't Miss This.” Two of our classmates had attained great pop- ularity and at tin same time had reached their ambition. They were sure “sports.” We ran on to Indianapolis and arrived late in the afternoon. We took supper with one of Mabel’s friends and later went to town accompanied by the sixteen-year-old daughter of the family. Adele. We went to a movie and saw Mary Stokes, a second Mary Pick ford, and Ben Zerface. greater even than Douglas Fairbanks. They had been movie stars for twelve years, and noboby knew that either was over thirty. Looking over the audience, Adele called nv attention to a tall man wearing a sort of goggles for spectacles and said “That is my Physics Professor, Otto W. Keith. He wrote the t xl book we study and is dreadfully stuck up. but he lias a weakness for theatre going that he can't overcome.” That fellow over there. She pointed in another direction. “Is Professor Edward Chapman, head of the English department at Shortridgc. His English is perfect, and they sav In used to talk slang when he was a boy.” We spent the night in Indianapolis, and the next morning prepared to go farther We had a collision with an auto running a' a speed at Irani slightly above tin limit, and the occupants of both machines were takes to court. When we got out of our car w?K. IF. S. CRESCENT 18 Page 43 discovered those in the other to be our old friends. Mr. and Mrs. Clarence MeConley. We went into the court but the judge, Frank Warner, let us all go. out of friendship, and since tin- MeConlev ear was damaged. Clarence and Rutfcie climbed into ours and laughing, we went on our journey. We were all going to Chicago, where he arrived midafternoon. Ruth took us by force of argument to her friends, and when we reached the said friend’s, it proved to be Mrs. Paul Mahonev nee Edna Parson. Chicago's greatest society leader, who was very hospitable and entertained ns in great style. We were guests of honor at a pretty little party which goes to prove that when “Ted” entertains— well, you know the rest. Mabel and I took a walk through town the next afternoon after our arrival, being resolved that we would go to no more courts about automobiles. We viewed the city hall and all its wonderous sights. This sign caught my eve and I pointed it out to my companion “O. Simmons, Barber I bad beard that he had tried literary work but it proved a failure, so be became a harbor, lie had massed a small fortune, and accordingly wore a large diamond tie pin the siz of a hickory nut. Another sign was of interest : • Mine. Doris Kurd Fairfax Ruben stine. Matrimonial Bureau.” We went in and talked with Mine. Rubenstinc a long lime. She said she had been married seven times and divorced as many, but she only used the most becoming of the seven names. She found husbands hard to manage as a rule, but never hard to secure a new one, so she »hanged them often. She said she was attaining publicity and that was her supreme hope when she was young. After leaving here we bought an evening paper, and Mabel, looking over society news (trust her for that) discovered this item-. “Wedding This Afternoon, at four o'clock al the office of the justice of the peace, occurred the marriage of Miss Beulah Blanche Helen Hazel Brown, a school teacher here for several years, to Francis Edward Algernon Bacon, a popular young Chicago salesman. The young people will make Chicago their future home.” We wished Hazel jov, and examined the paper further. The ear toon was the work of Leonard Sauer, who always signed himself Doc. He often made the editors angry because of the roast about them which were inserted in the cartoons. But be had never been fired, due to the cause that the editor-in-chief feared the enormov-rims on Doe’s glasses. In another colurne was published the latest speech of America’s most famous Congresswoman. Miss Adah Broadhent. She had great talent as an orator ami took a prominent part in all discussions in congress. We left Chicago tin next morning. We passed the orphans' home and being thirsty wo stopped for a drink. We were welcomed by the matron. Miss Helen Kesthr, who said she was very happy in this work. She took us over to the poor house next door, where we found the keeper to be Mr. ami Ali s. Paid Miller. This small group of E. H. S. ’18ers lived in peace and quiet in their country home. We made good time the rest of the morn-big, and stopped for dinner in a small country town. Wo hadn’t meant to do this but our gasoline ran out, so we stopped at the one small garage the village possessed. In the owner we recognized Wilbur Morgan, and he directed us to the small restaurant where we ate lunch. The proprietress proved to be Miss Rarabara Beeson, and she told us a spinster's life satisfied her utmost longing She informed us as to the whereabouts of a good hotel where we might spend the n;gl,t. We went on and found the town of good size. We put up at the hotel and decided promptly to stay here all next day to attend Ringling’s Circus. This circus was of considerable size, having bought out the old Wallace-Ilagenbeck and Bartntm and Bailey. Among the people in the hotel was swell-cheated man. undoubtedly a banker, as we afterward ascertained. What was my surprise when Mabel started a conversation such ms she might to an old friend. Then, as I said, I did not yet understand, she introduced ne to Arnold Kurtz. Arnold said that two others of our classmates also resided in this town. Paul Stewart, a successful green-grocer, whose trade well became him, and Nora Leavitt Ebert a suffragette so strong that even though allowed to vote, she couldn’t quit talking about it. We went to the circus the next day, and encountered in clown's makeup none otherPaso 44 than Webstar Ferguson and Chug Harris evidently enjoying themselves. They said ever since they first saw a circus they had 'vanted to be clowns, and now they had their wish. A pretty little circus girl came up after the performance and introduced herself as Gladys Phillips, though in the sawdust ring she was known as Clementina Angel inc Cynthia Cunningham. When we got back to the hotel we were tired out and sat down to rest. A young lady came up to a pretty woman and addressing her as “mamma” sat down beside her. moment more and I knew the older woman to be Florence Ferguson. She was on her way back to her home in Seattle, Wash., where she had lived since her marriage to a handsome young Seattle millionaire. She had visited with some of her classmates, among them Elsie Norris, still a spinster, though that was not the fault of scores of admirers. Elsie had always sighed for popularity, and she had been constantly engaged to be married to not less than seven fellows at a time for tin last sixteen years, and at present found herself engaged to eleven. But she never married for she said the height of a girl’s popularity was when slut was engaged. Florence said she saw Mary Swain too. and she lived in Mudsock and was popular there in high society. She was able to tell me of Edna Mc-Carel and Lillian John who had become actresses and were now traveling with a large stock company. Lillian always played the vampire parts while Edna wps the B. II. S. CRESCENT ’18 ""ntle one, so they got along well toget’ We parted much enlightened as to affairs of our different classmates. The next day Mabel and I drove to St. Louis, and it being Saturday evening we visited the Union Market for a Sunday luncheon. We wanted a good eel and the clerk who obligingly showed us some, said “Hello Mabel,” and she said “Hello. Blanche Ma-ley.” Blanche was hard at work and happy. We secured our eel and bought some vegetables and cakes at other stalls. Passing up the street on our way to our hotel wo met two dandies swinging their canes, and drawing the attention of the younger feminine portion of the crowd. There was a strong resemblance to Bob Dcllority s walk about, one of them, and sure enough when they were closer we saw it was Boh, and Howard McClure out for a good time. We went straight to our rooms and rang for the maid. She came in the person of Daisy Jones, and almost forgot what we told her to do, so busy were we all in talking over old times. Wc slept late on Sunday morning, but arose early enough to attend church at the Grace Methodist. Wc bad been told of the excellent pastor of the church, and when he stepped out to begin Ids sermon, it seemed strange that it should he so, but it was Jay Clarke, the celebrated clergyman, known in all bis state for be bad “shown Missouri.” Wc spent the day in Forest Park. In the afternoon wc spied a gay party of women, sud on closer approach could hear the well- known laugh of Ruthe Hinkle. Wc re-acquainted ourselves with Sedalia and the ether four picnicers whom wc used to know as Beulah Hobbs, Madge Minor, Nita Riegel and Orpha Hancock. These busy housewives had left their cares for ©n« day and were laughing and talking ami glad to see us. On onr return to tin hotel we found telegram from Sheridan, with whom Mabel had communicated earlier in the day. saying for goodness sake to come hack, that lie couldn’t manage business, children and dog all three without her. We concluded that we had found out about most of the Honor-aide Sixty so we pointed our Not ford homeward. This time we crossed Southern Illinois and landed in Olnev for Monday night. We both decided we would buy a new dress, so we entered a department store. The floor manager approached us and instead of asking onr need said: “Well girls! where did von drop from?” On second glance we found her to he Thelma Webb. We asked how she had come to live in Olnev. and she said she had lived several places. Pittsburg was the place just before the present one, but some way she couldn t get along with the smoke. She corresponded with Margaret Tbcander, a noted artist, famed in Europe also, blit now a resident of New ork. Her pictures sold far and wide. Elizabeth Broyles, Thelma said, was the idol of the Cleveland kidnergarten. Sin was superintendent of this department all over the city, and the children liked nothing better thanE. II. S.

Lillian Weidner we heard was an unsuccessful obi maid. She liked her lot well enough but several others of the opposit. noy preferred to differ with her. Not to the, benefit, however, for her heart lie t one of them ooud win Bv Tuesday evening we had reached Indianapolis again, and went to announce the fact to Mr. and Mrs. McConlev. who luul returned home from Chicago. They had two other guests to dill no; . Miss Wilson, editor of the Indianapolis News, prominent indeed at all doings of the elite, and (Jen. Howard Baker, a veteran of the great world war of l‘M. We started bright and early Wednesday for El wood. We passed a machine that was somewhat damaged irom having recently come in contact with the fence. Sara Nivi-son had been experimenting with it and this had been the result. But Sara was not worried. Wc invited her to ride back to her town with ns and sin agreed. We mentioned towing her machine, but she said “Oh, uover mitui. it’s only a Ford and 1 can get another one tomorrow.” We dropped Sara at her home ami traveled on. At Anderson we wanted a place to eat dinner, and more romantic than a restaurant we decided to examine the city directory for some one we knew, it yielded no satisfaction, however, so we purposely ran out of gasoline in front of a promising looking house. We knocked, hut no answer. We went to the hack porch bent on adventure and we surely found it. There was a hot tie of cream and a refrigerator on the spacious porch, ami we ate a cold lunch on the steps. The hack door opened in the midst of our glee, ami our friend, once Charlotte Sneed, confronted us. We looked abashed, hut I finally recovered myself and explained. Charlotte laughed and called it a good joke and kept us till three o’clock, when w • started again. Going through town we were stopped by a cop” who informed us that we were exceeding the speed limit We didn’t know what to do and thought it was court for us, till I saw the man in uniform was Clifton Berry, and we coaxed him out of it. He enjoyed arresting people, and bated to give us up, but since it was us, be gave in, ai d with h sigh of regret let us pass on. As we rode through the country where the wheat was just beginning to turn from green to gold, where the dust lay thick on the road and tin sun was beating down on us. we passed a figure wearing a simhonuel and swinging a tin pail in her hand. We stopped and asked her to ride, and Vivian Starr answered us. As we rode along she told us of her life. She was a farmer's wife ami liked it fine. She thought the character well became her and we didn’t dare to differ with her. We asked her of Blanche Digel and she said Blanche w as a weather prophet in a Philadelphia drug store. She always knew just what the weather would be without government bulletins, and she might also serve as drug clerk, so the proprietor considered her a bargain and bad kept her seven years. Vivian left us at her home ami we traveled on. Mabel said, “Mirl. we haven’t found out a thing about any of our old teachers. We ought.” We thought it over and finally decided that we were too near home to go back and look them up. But Mabel suggested that we remember them as they used to be. or used to seem to us. So just as we came into Ehvood again I recited this jingle: Mr. Konold. superintendent. With his Hpizerinktum smile. Mr. Jones’ manual training, where they saw board? by the mile.

CRESCENT '18 THE members of the present 4B class will never forget the memorable eoltl January day when they entered High School for the first time, curious as Freshmen always are and afraid to move for fear those dignified Seniors would make sport of them. Of course they were not immune to all these pranks, but they did fairly well as Freshmen, committing only a few of the many mistakes but they' were truly glad when they became Sophomores and could help in playing pranks on the Freshmen. In May, 1916 they organized and Opal Haiselup was elected president and Irene Wertzbergcr secretary and treasurer. Since the term was 0 nearly ended no active work was pursued but after a three-months’ vacation they returned to schools as 2A’s fvdl of energy and life. Since the old officers had seen no active service, they were reinstated. The first class party was given on Hallowe’en, 1916, at the home of Opal Haiselup, on South K street. Tin house was decorated with branches, cornshocks, jack o’lanterns, black cats, witches and the usual Hallowe’en colors. The house, dimly lighted gave a weird appearance as the class members arrived, dressed in their unique and clever costumes. They were each challenged at the gate by ghost sentinels, and were required to give the password. After encountering 4-B Class History several of these grim spectres, they were allowed to enter the house, where Hallowe’en pastimes occupied the evening.

They had two very enjoyable parties, one at the home of Helen Starr and the other at the home of Cecil Guy . They were both well attended and everyone reported a good time. In September, 1917 Gladys Foland was elected president ami Opal Haiselup secretary and treasurer. In January, 1918 of all the pleasant things in liigli school they became those much adored, dignified Seniors. They reorganized and elected Charles Dick president, Irene Wertzbergcr vice president and Fred Arend secret nary and t reasurer. A Thrift Club ’vas also organized and Irene Mott and Irvin Matchett were appointed on the Thrift committee. They have also had two pleasant parties this term, the first at the home of Charles Dick and the other at the home of Helen Starr. They were both well attended and the evening was spent in party pastimes. The next important social event will be the Senior reception to he given May 17th in the gymnasium. The class members have long anticipated this event and hope to make it a grand success. But the one thing that they regret most is that they have but one more semester to spend in the dear old E. II.

After a three-months’ vacation, which coined very short to them, they began their Sophomore year by electing the class officers a« follows: President, Howard Crouse: Vice President. Nancy Cox: Secretary and Treasurer Mary Harrow. In October Hazel Sidwell entertained tin-class at her home, which was followed by a weenie’’ roast at the home of Morris De-llority and during Christmas vacation they had a bob-sled ride to the home of Fdlen Poland. The best entertainment of the year was given by the mothers of the 2A boys, which was a Valentine party given in the Gym. Jeannette Lewis and Lowell Cochran in turn also entertained the class in their homes. The Sophomore basket ball team was very strong, defeating many good teams, and was practically the K. II. S. second team. At the beginning of the Junior year tip-following class officers were elected : President, Ray Gray; Vice President, Win. Hiatt; Secretary and Treasurer, Nancy Cox. Tim first Junior class party was given at Janet Courtney’s home, which was followed by one at the home of Ann Lewis. In March another party was given at the home of Esther Varling. Early in tin year the elass proved its patriotism by subscribing for two $50 Liberty Bonds instead of planning an expensive spread for tin reception to be given the 4It's, and so far has been the only class to do so. They also immediately took the lead in buying Thrift Stamps when the stamps began to In sold. The Juniors had a strong basket ball team, defeating all the other class teams, and so winning the school championship, which they now hold in both basket hall and base hall, having won their championship in base ball during their Freshie year. The elass was also well represented on the foot ball team. What the Faculty Think of the 3A Class. I?. Cochran—“Hard to tell.” P.

CRESCENT ’18 History of the 2-A Class ONE bright warm Monday morning, in the Fall of 191b, a group of boys atul girls from El wood and all the surrounding country, trooped up tin front walk to the El wood High School, along with tin Sophomores. Juniors and Seniors. These youngsters were very curious and excited when they entered the building in which they were to spend a large part of the following fou' years of their lives, where they were to have the best of times and the worst of times, the time of wisdom and the tine of foolishness, where roses and thorns grow together for every one of the pupils. During this first year many of the class proved to he studious, many otherwise, som • won the good-will of the teachers, others their ill-will. Of course it went very hard with this hunch to be called Freshios, to be laughed at for their mistakes and reprimanded by our ‘'darling Charlie” for chewing gum. However they soon overcame their fear of making mistakes and being laughed at and settled down to work, some reaching the Honor Roll, others making grades worthy of mention and others, as ui all classes, ‘‘flunked The big event of the Freshman year was pulled olT on June 1. when a large crowd of the class, chaperoned by .Miss Galvin, piled onto a large truck and went down near Per-kinsville to spend the day. When they start- ed. the sun was hidden by some heavy clouds but soon shorn out in all its glory and everyone reported a most glorious time. Miss Galvin spent her time fishing, the boys went swimming and the girls enjoyed themselves with numerous pranks, such as all girls love. On September 13, 1917. this same happy gioup again entered E. H. S. to spend their Sophomore year, another year of roses ami thorns, with our “darling Charlie” gone mid our old English teacher, as principal. Everyone was busy with his studies and getting settled in his new quarters, so no step was taken toward organization until September 18, when Mr. Edwards acted as chairman ami the class elected Donald (more '•onunonly known as Don or Fat) Massey, President; Marcella Koons, Vive President ami Gladys Daniels, Secretary and Treasurer for the Sophomore year. At this meeting a Social Committee, Motto Committee, ar.d Color Commit tee was elected and all the class b highly elated at the prospects for good times and good work to be done by the m»wly organized class. Then of all the grand announcements which ever appeared on the hoard in Assembly Room II, this was the most exciting and pleasing to the Sophomores “All 2I» s going to the class nartv to be held at the home of Marcella Koons, Friday night, Oc- tober . , pay Marian Campbell before Thursday evening.” Everyone in the class was excited and all plans were on foot for a fine time at the party. Thursday morning all High School pupils were called to the auditorium. Supt. Konold made tin announcement that one of the High School pupils had been quarantined for smallpox, everyone in the Ifigh School had to he vaccinated and all class parties had to he postponed indefinitely. We discovered that Lester Helms, a member of our class was the victim of smallpox and the person who caused us all to be vaccinated. The Sophomores liad their share of sore arms and finally the scare was sufficiently over for the party. We held a Hallowe’en party on November 1 and had a fine time, even though the beans were stolen and the lights went out. The class held other parties at the homes of Beulah Pugh, Helen Ferguson and Velma Griffin. Also several class meetings were held for different purposes, such as selecting our class colors, which are old rose and black: boosting the Sophomore Savings Society and the Annual. Among other memorable things wl ich this class did this winter was to send a large and beautiful floral tribute to the Palmer homo, to show sympathy for their beloved classmate. Dean Palmer, in his hours of sorrow. The Sophomores arc looking forward to the time when they will have the honor of being called Juniors, with great hopes that that "'year will he more successful in every way than the two preceding years.•JLASS OF ’21E. H. S. CRESCENT '18 Page 55 The Fairy's Party It was tin eighteenth biitlnlay of the Princess Happiness 11i r mother, Beauty, and her lather. Strength, had decided to give a paitv in her honor. (Jreat preparations were being made, all the lairies had been invited ami the already lovely garden v as made lovelier than ever for Summer had touched the flowers with her golden Wand and they had sprung into Tull bloom. Beauty and Strength were talking one day of the coming event and Beauty gave voice to a thought which had long been on her mind but of which she had never spoken before. ‘Strength, do you realize that Happiness is almost eighteen and yet has no thought of marriage? You know that we were married when I was hut sixteen. I% hav • never spoken of the matter to her for she would probably laugh at me because she never takes things seriously. Why not choose some one for her and make a public announcement of it at the party? ’ ‘Beauty, that subject has been uppermost in my mind, also, for some time. 1 have tested all our courtiers and can find no on more fit to be her husband than Wealth." When this conversation was taking place Happiness was roaming through the woods, as she was wont to do. She danced from one pretty flower to another, ami at last came to a laughing brook. On the bank sat a young man with his hack to her. He had eurlv black hair and a slim boyish figure. Happiness was so surprised that she uttered a gentle cry. Instantly’ the lad sprang to his feet and she found herself gazing into a pair of beautiful brown eyes. The color rose to her face and she stammered an apology but lie was so confused and spell-bound by the beautiful figure before him that h could sav nothing. Ah, he did not know that he was gazing at a fairy or he would have had the grace to lower his eyes. “I-I’m sorry I disturbed you,” Happiness said, rather indignant that anyone should look at her so boldly, but his stare was frank and open, therefore she could not take much offense at it. “But I am not accustomed to meeting anyone here and I was startled. I am sure I have never seen you at fathcr 8 court, have I ” 1 do not know just which court you mean," lie replied, thinking of the land from which he had just strayed. “What1 Do not know whether you have been at father’s court?” ‘ Ob. I beg your pardon, I don’t suppose I hav .” “What is your name?” she asked. ' Why, my name is Youth, what is vours?” “Mv name is Happiness,” she answered. Thus went on the conversation and at last Happiness came and sat down on the bank by his side and In found himself telling her his story while she sat motionless, listening to the music of his voice. She stayed much longer than she had intended because when Youth meets Happiness they are very reluctant to part. “I have lived in a country far differentPaw 56 E. H. S. CRESCENT ’18 from this. The very air seemed different. Here everything seems restful and peaceful and I am happy. Hut where I came from no one was really happy. Everyone was trying to wring something from some one else and they all seemed turned against me. Everywhere I went I was trampled upon, Youth was not wanted. They tried to crush me, they were jealous of me. At last 1 was driven away entirely. But 1 am glad I was since I wandered here and met you.” When his story was finished Happiness sat in reverie for a while thinking of what he had said. It dawned upon her that he had come from the land of men, so she decided it would be better not to tell him that she was a fairy. At length she arose to go hut not before she had promised to return the next. day. As Happiness returned to the palace of her father she ielt sad that she had not known of the lack of happiness on earth but still in her heart was a feeling of such joy that she felt she had never before realized what her name signified. At that moment she looked up and saw her aunt, Love, coming toward her and then she knew that— but she pushed back the thought, for what right had her aunt to bring love to her heart without the consent of her father, the king, and she felt sure that he would never allow her to marry a mortal. When Happiness arrived at the palace her mother told her the plan of marrying her to Wealth, and then the smile that was on Happiness face and the joy that was in her heart left her and sorrow for the first time was brought into the Land of the Fairies. Hut she made no objection, for Heauty was Queen and her word was law. Love had not yet heard of this plan but when she did she raised her hands in horror, for she had already waved her wand over the hearts of Happiness and Youth and she knew that what was done could not be undone, therefore she told Heauty of her deed. Beauty was of a gentle disposition, so she wept bitterly that her beautiful daughter should be lost on a common mortal, hut all her lamentations could do no good, for the charm could not be broken. Every day Happiness and Youth talked and danced in the woods. Only then was Happiness her real self again. At the palac it was whispered that her name should be changed to “Gloom.” One day Happiness grew bold enough to invite Youth to her party. He gladly accepted not knowing that it was at the palace of a king and that king the King of the Fairies. Th evening of the party arrived. Happiness was resplendent in a gown of soft Howing material the color of forget-me-nots, with lilies of the valley entwined in her golden hair. At one moment Happiness’ heart heat fast with the hope of what might happen, then it would grow cold for fear that her father would be angry upon seeing Youth. Beauty had not told Strength of her daughter's love hut had said that perhaps they had better defer mention of the marriage to Wealth until later ami Strength had at last agreed. As Happiness entered one end of the great hall, Youth entered the other. She in her joy forgot all ceremony and ran across the hall with outstretched arms and led Youth to the feet of her father. •Youth, this is my father, tell him your story.” He, of course, under the spell of her loveliness, did as he was bidden. Love was seated on the left of the king and Beauty was on the right. When Youth had finished. Strength turned to Love and said: “All, my fair sister, I see that you have had a part in this. I need but to glance at their young faces to see that. And if it has been your will I have no power against it.” Then to Youth he said: “You have strayed into the Land of th Fairies. This, my beautiful daughter, is the fairy Happiness. Long have I known that I should part with her and send her to bring joy to men, but I did not know that it was us bad as you have said. Hut now take her, Youth, I know of no better keeper.” So together they went to the land of men, Happiness taking with her love, a gift from her aunt : Strength, a gift from her father, and beauty, a gift from her mother, and Youth and Happiness have beeu constant companions ever since.E. H. S. CRESCENT 18 Page 57 The Lost Bill A small hoy of about twelve years was slowly walking lown the street, stopping now and then to look into a shop window with eager eyes. He was poorly clad and this with the pale face and wistful eyes told better than words that he was from that part of the city inhabited by the poorer class of people. Now, as he turned from one of the windows, the eagerness faded from his eves and gave place to a despondent xpr gion as he realized, perhaps, that In could never possess any of the bright attractions cf the shop windows. He continued down the street. Today something new had attracted his attention to the shops. It was a brass image of a goat, hut the queerest goat he had ever seen. It's body was more like that of a lion with its tail curled around its forelegs. Tin whole figure from the tips of the horns to he base measured about eight inches. Although it would have been of no us to the hoy. it was something new and he longed to possess it. When he realized that this was impossible, he had turned away with despondent expression. The air had become chilly with the set ting of the sun and now he quickened his steps. It was time for him to find a sleeping place for the night. Finally he came to an alley where he discovered several large empty boxes. Crawling into one of these he prepared to sleep. For a while he sat watch ing the passers-by through an opening in the box. On the street a man hurried past the alley. As he did so lie took his handkerchief from his pocket. Something fluttered to tin payment The hoy. seeing it fall, quickly secured it and found it to he a one dollar hill. Looking down the street lie could see nothing of the man who had dropped it. What should he do? Suddenly he thought cf tin oncer brass animal in the shop window. Why could he not have it now? He reasoned thn since the owner of the hill c old not found, it belonged to the finder. He hurried hack to the shop ami entering, exchanged the hill for the goat. He fondly put i; imd« r his coat and hurried out of flu shop and down the street. Leaching the alley, he turned toward the boxes. Suddenly something was thrown over his head and In was lifted bcdilv into a waiting cab. An order was given to the driver and the cab moved on. Half dazed he tried to think. Why should anyone wish to kidnap him him. a ragged street urchin? He still held the goat tightly in his arms Finally the cab stopped and lie felt himself being carried up stone steps and through a door which clanged shut after them. Now In heard voices. lie was sudden!Iv dropped mercilessly upon a hard stone floor, llis head seemed to he whirling, then lie dropped into unconsciousness. He came to with a start. Distinctly he could hear voices coming apparently from an adjoining room. Although he could scarcely comprehend what was being said, he made one great discovery. His abductors were after his goat! Having made this discovery he determined they should never g t it. Hearing footsteps approaching he looked hastily around for a place to hide it. At one end of the room he discovered a small opening in the stone wall covered hv draperies. Into this lie hastily thrust the goat. He had just assumed his old position on the floor when a key grated in the lock and a large man with tangled black whiskers stepped in. ITc glr ,d at the hoy for a moment then looked around the room, seemingly for the goat. Not fin-ling it. he turned angrily to the boy end demanded to know where it was. The how too frightened to answer rec« ived a kick and again dropped into unconsciousness. hen he came to he was alone. His first thought was of the goat. Arising painfully, he went to the hole in the wall. Pushing the draperies aside he peered in. The goat was gone! Had the man found his hiding place? The month of the hole was about eighteen inches square. He could see but a short distance into the hole and it was possible that in his haste lie had thrown the goat farther hack than he had supposed. Continued on Page 82.Pago 58 E. H. S. CRESCENT 18 Tire music department has been making decided progress this year under the competent direction of the instructress, Miss Eeacheldcrfer. Most of our work has been in accordance with the present time, that of patriotism. Something out of the ordinary is the Tuesday morning special chorus as formed. In this chorus the lives of the composers are studied. There being about thirty boys and girls in it. This chorus sang for the Third Liberty Loan and received much praise for this work and special training for these songs. Every Thursday evening about eighteen girls meet for the Girls ’chorus. They have practiced hard for their special songs, which they sang in the May Festival. The boys gave two excellent pieces in the May Festival, which shows that Elwood boys can sing. The girls had a hard race to keep up with the boys during practice for the May Festival. Of course the Orchestra must come in for its full amount of praise. They have been doing splendid work and practicing hard in order to help make the May Festival, which was held Friday, May 10, a decided success. The Orchestra and Quartette made a good showing at the Eeelesia meetings. The Orchestra is also to play at the graduation exercises on May 2d, and at the semiannual reception on May 17. The entire chorus meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for fifteen minutes hut within two weeks prior to the May Festival extra meetings were held for practice. MAY FESTIVAL PROGRAM. Part I.

This was our first rann of the 1917 season, and although we had several new men in the line-up ve won the ganm 13-0. This game was fairly rough and in the second half Kay Gray was knocked out and had to be taken off the field. October 14. we played New Castle. This frame was soft for us. nothing exciting until HI wood took the ball over and a negro on the New Castle team shouts. “|) ball, do ball, get de ball bye.” Kay Lewis, lying at the bottom, calmly spoke- Don't worry I’ve got the ball all right.” We made S touchdowns ami were satisfied with a 48 0 .score. After a hard week’s practice, we met Lo-gansport and won a hard-earned battle, the final score being 7 0. After the Loganspor! game tin whole school looked forward to the Wabash game. Every one remembers our game at Wabash in ‘If., it being our onlv defeat, but this time it was different. Saturday, October 28, was a rainy day and tInfield was in bad condition. At the first of the game Wabash started going, but we stopped them. Val Steiglitz made our first touchdown and we plaved in dead earnest. In the second quarter Val got away with a long run and made a touchdown, but was laid out. In the second half we started the game with Berry and Steiglitz out of the game and things looked bad but by hard playing we held them ; and Barney Zerfaee punched two more touchdowns for us. making our score 24-0. So we were revenged on Wabash. Two weeks later, November 10. we met defeat at the hands of Sheridan. El wood played a great game of football and really outplayed Sheridan, but in the second half the break came. El wood fumbled and Sheridan made a touch down. In the third quar-h r El wood buckled down and Barney Zerfaee made a 45-vard run and placed the Lai! on Sheridan’s 15-vard line, but we failed to get it over. Williams, Sheridan’s main play-' r punched the ball over our line for one more touchdown and kicked goal, the score being 13-0 in Sheridan’s favor. November 17th the team went to Peru. Here we were shown a good time. In the first quarter Peru made two touchdowns, one o i criss-cross end run and one on an open center play, both of which we should have stopped. We settle ’down the second quarter and held Peru, and in the third quarter the slaughter began. Buck Stieglit made a touchdown, Zerfaee kicked goal and Peru having failed to kick goal, the score stood 12-7 at the end of the third quarter. Hart of Wabash refereed the game and was determined that Peru should win by stalling and had decisions. He worked us out of another touchdown. We had been hammering pern: they were all in and were on their own 2-yard line. They attempted to punt the hall, went straight up and hack of the goal out of bounds and Sherdv Clyde caught it. Therefore the ball was ours where it went out and we should have had another touchdown but the referee did not see fit to give it to us, tin game ending 12-7. in Peru’s favor. After the game, the spectators came upon the field and the fight ensued. The chief centers being around Most, Duke, Kit -rtiller and Zerfaee. Not being satisfied with the game. Coach Cochran put the facts before the State Board and we were awarded the game 13-12. SCHEDULE October 7—Noblesville. October 14—New Castle. October 21—Logansport. October 28—Wabash.

Although by losing Sherdy, our most dependable ‘point getter,” we were considerably weakened but Mitchell and Cloyd Hershcy proved themselves worthy as forwards, hy their team work and efficient handling of the hall. Chug Harris still remained the point man, as usual, everywhere at one , pushing up plays and was ably helped by Duke Kitzmiller, and later Chub-States, and Howard Mosiman playing center played the defensive game for us Webster Ferguson, who early in the season received an injured arm. was not able to play in several of the games but the ones he did play in he showed the people that he knew where the goal was. E If. S. had a splendid second team, w hich kkept the first team going in good shape. After playing the season and all expecting a good time at the tournament they were disappointed at the last moment, on account of delay in the mails, we were not able to get our team registered and did not get to play. ONE of the most interesting features of ing which the girls made in their E. II. S. for ’17 and ’IS was the show-basket hall work. This is practically a new addition to the school activities, for although in previous years the girls of our II. S. have had this training to a certain extent, yet never before has such interest been shown, or a team been organized. The training has been such this year that we are positive that K. II.

We also trust that some of the colleges may include some of the E. II. S. girls in their team next winter. Tin girls were rather slow in getting started this year, hut when they oner began they made things lively.

CRESCENT ’18 Pago 71 The Success of The Crescent is in no small measure due to the Quality of Stafford Engravings and the Charactor of Stafford Co-operation In making this statement, we have no desire to take any credit, from the editorial staff—in fact we feel that it is all the more to their credit that they realized the superior quality of Stafford cngra hips and that they so thoroughly appreciated the value of Stafford co-operation. Years of specialization have made the Stafford organization unusually expert In engraving and designing for college and school publications. The most modem shop equipment gives us eveiv facility for prompt production of quality etchings, halftones and color plates. Stafford halftones are made by the famous Levy-acid-blast process, which gives a dearer, deeper and sharper etch than the tub method generally used. Printers like Stafford plates because it makes it easier for them to give you a first-class Job. The Stafford hand-book, “Engraving for College and School Publications." containing 164 pages and over 'b»o illustrations, gives valuable suggestions for planning you; publication, preparing copy and ordering ■ngravin.,8. It prevents costly mistakes and assures you ol the highest quality engravings at lowest cost. We do not sell this hook we merely lend it without charge to the staff of each publication for which we make the engravings.
