As a master of string instruments he is great, always in on a good time and above all he is Doe Dick’s son. GLADYS POLAND “Susie.” “A maiden hath no tongue but tho't.” A very popular girl, noted for her sweet disposition and winning smiles. She has a melodious voice as charming as a lark, and if we are not mistaken or some one else does not persuade her otherwise, she will probably become a famous vocalist. FRED AREND “Rev. “High ideals and lofty thoughts.” The strong personality of this tall senior has won him many friends and his departure from our fold was regretted by all. “Rev.” claims lo be a member of the “Bachelor Club” but perhaps “Dutch” can tell us different. ALMA MAINES •“Fuzz.” “Silence is more eloquent than words.” “Fuzz” so small and shy, she sets the pace for Paris styles. Never a tear or never a sigh, she wins over all by her bright smiles. IRVIN MATCHETT “Irv.” “Nothing so difficult but may la-won by industry.” Irvin is a bashful blonde, lie is noted for his white cheeks and “talkitiv-ness.” For awhile we thought he was learning the drug trade but now he has switched over to the jewelry line. 16 T1IE CRESCENT HELEN STARR ‘‘Wiggles.” ‘‘Words sweetly placed a;: ! modestly directed.” We are all very prcu 1 of this small member of our class. She is an excellent reader and always wins favor with her pleasing personality and pretty brown eyes. KENNETH TURNER ‘‘Kenny.” ‘‘Young man consult your father.” Our sunny haired ‘‘Kenny'" is one big joke, and very popular among the E. II. S. girls. At present he is busy putting ’em over the teachers and preparing himself as a future ‘‘soda souirt.” IRENE WERTZBERGER “Werty.” “Let your heart be as an open book.” Irene is very popular in school and social affairs. Her beauty and accomplishments are quite famous and the charm of her soft sweet voice is said to be irresistible. But above all, Irene is noted for her style in hair dressing. FRED SWIHART “Sousa.” “You can reach stupidity only with a cannon hall.” “Swi,” the barber, one man you can trust with a razor. As a musician Fred has made himself known not only in Uigli School but liked by all who hear him. BERTHA INGRAM “Sunshine.” “A long tongue balding gossip???’’Bertha in school was very studious and one of our best students. So willing and so shy may she prosper and rejoice.T HE CRESCENT 17 FRED WILLIAMS ‘“Fritz.” ‘“A dear little thing.” Size makes no difference in knowledge as in the ease of this small senior. But his chief difficulty is trying to figure out why Miss Cox gives him so many 0’s. OPAL HAISELUP “Dolly.” “Please go way and let me sleep.” Our pretty Opal has not been with us very much this year but she has a host of friends. Without her what would Evan’s ding store be? JOHN GARRIGUS “ ohann. ’ “‘Ability is a poor man’s wealth.” John has many admirers in E. H. S. lie is especially noted for his cute ways and good looking neckties. But he is a little bashful on account of his tortoise shell “specks.” KATHERINE LEWIS. “ ‘ Jim. ” “ Remember a smile is always worth while.” Kate, loved by all, we wish you the happiest things in life. You have charmed us all by your jolly good nature and optimism. LILLIAN JONES “Lilly.” “Ease with dignity.” Lillian is a very quiet and bashful girl, widely known and admired. She is a good student and always on time, gifted as a musician and interested in social life. %18 T IIE C R E S C E N T IRENE MOTT “Mugs.” “Words pass away but dreds remains.” Irene is a girl with a very sweet disposition. Her chief care in life is managing Mary. But she is very capable of doing it for a'that. HERMAN BOONE “Boonie.” “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.” This young man is very fond of school in the E. H. S. We predict that he will either be one of Elwood’s leading chemists or director of a minstrel show. NANCY COX “Nancy Jane.” “Auntie, I must have a husband or I shall set fire to the house.” We owe much of the success of our class to you our secretary and treasurer. Just as to your future life we are uncertain. As a musician you’re good, as a student great, as to your fondness for boys—you’re wise—you have none. Your part in “Green Stockings” as “Madge” belies your true character. LLOYD JONES “Jonzy.” “When you do not know whai to do,wait.” This Star City boy is now quite famous with us. As an athlete he is all there good in his studies and every ready for a date. That he will some time find some one who will have him is the sincere wish of his classmate . MARJORIE JONES “Marge.” “Who weds before he is wise, shall not thrive before he dies.” Marjorie came to us in her junior year from Star City. We have reason to believe that her future is all planned for she always speaks of “Jim” and silverware in the same breath, but we hope she doesn’t treat Jim as bad as she (Aunt Ida) treats William Farady in “Green Stockings.” We hope that life will deal kindly with her for she is liked by all.T II E CRESCENT MORRIS DEIIORITY “Toots.” “Comb down 'his hair; look, look; it stands upright.” O Tootsie, beware of girls who steal silk handkerchiefs. Morris is another one of those bench warmers, lmt O. such a bashful boy. He’s a dandy pupil and never gives the teachers any trouble. CLAUDINE RICHESON “Richy.” “A little stone may upset a large cart.” Claudine is one of our most studious girls but she always finds time to enjoy life. Her highest ambition as near as we can find out is “shuving” suds across the counter in shiny glasses. HOWARD CROUSE “Crousy.” “Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow.” Our efficient editor-in-chief is a very popular lad and he beams upon all the girls as the sun does upon the earth in the spring time. President of “The Ecclesia” and our acrobatic yell leader. He also makes a good “Colonel Smith” in “Green Stockings.” MARY HARROW “Honey Bunch.” “Manners form the great charm of women. Our pretty Mary is so quiet and studious, but one look into those innocent brown eyes warns all her classmates to beware. She is going through “High” in record time but this doesn’t seem to interfere with her having plenty of time to take care of “Kale.” No he’s not a cabbage. RAY GRAY “Jim.” “The size of the hat doesn’t always indicate the size of the brain.” Our diplomatic Ray’s quiet ways and forceful manner won our admiration in our Junior year and has held it ever since. And by the way what do you think of Ray as “William Far-ady” in “GreenStoekings?” Ray is thinking of leaving Elwood soon and going to Pennsylvania or Montana. Maybe?20 T IIE CRESCENT ANN LEWIS “Hubertie.” “Laugh and grow fat.” Ann is our assistant joke editor and a better one could not be found. She is known by her love for chocolate candy and “Snick.” Any moment you can hear her laughing or giggling. THELMA NEWKIRK “Billy.” “All meat is to be eaten, all maids to be wed.” Billy, with cheeks like roses and hair to match. No wonder you captivate us all. But beware boys, she’s a cunning “vampire.” HELEN DRAPER “Patty.” “Do you know a young and beautiful woman who is not ready to flirt— just a little?” Helen is our curly headed literary editor. You may think she is a very bashful girl, but “Oh Boy,” you should have been at a certain party and seen her flirt. However she is going to be a nurse and is sure to be a success. WILLIAM AUSTILL “Weevum.” “He that eats and saves, sets the table twice.” “Hungry” ----- is noted for his laughing and was the bench warmer in our basket ball team. He takes the sunny side of life and love affairs never trouble “Bill.” Last, but not least, lie is our joke editor (Good luck to “effervescence.”) He made a good looking “Admiral” in “Green Stockings,” too. WILLIAM HIATT “Professor. “Even though vanquished he could argue still.” William is our energetic business manager, who takes the serious side (f life. He’s noted for his curly hair and large shell rimmed spectacles, both of which he just “adores." Bill was all right as “James Raleign” in “Green Stockings.” He’s very much interested in electricity and we see his future as a great electrician. But O, Bill don’t get shocked.TIIK CRESCENT 21 ROY MITCHELL “Mitch. “If you wish men to speak well of you, never speak well of yourself.” Iioy is one of our bright lads who is whistling his way to fame. Among his hobbies are foot ball, basket ball and going with the girls. In leaving he leaves behind him a string of broken hearts as long as your arm, but is still adored by all of them. LEONA BENSON. “Benny.” “She lives long that lives well.” Leona always has a smile for every one. Is determined and self-possessed. How she does “shine” and argue in history. MAURICE FAHERTY “Maurie.” “A man’s a man for a’ that.” Manrie, the shoe man. An all around business fellow and the delight of all the girls. As popular in High School as “Wally Reid in the movies.” JANET COURTNEY “Jeanne.” “If thou lovest learning thou shalt be learned.” This little sunbeam comes from the country and brings joy to all who know her. Even “Pop” is not vexed when she arrives at 10 a. m. She receives a box of candy each month from Montana which reminds her that there are Grays in other places besides Ehvood. RAYMOND FAHERTY “Ray.” “Look what a little vain dust we are.” Ray is the envy of all the girls and a jolly fellow among the boys. Ray has been with us during his Junior and Senior years only, but he has made a decided hit and starred as “Henry Steele” in “Green Stockings.”22 THE CRESCENT ELIZABETH MYERS “Betty.” “She loves him best who lives back East.” Our star performer in “Katcha-Koo.” Gifted as musician. Elizabeth has a decided will of her own and uses it frequently. Ask certain Senior boys. She is also our Class Chauffeur. JOE CARPENTER “Oogie.” “Twinkle, twinkle little star.” Joe is a tall, lanky fellow, who would be two feet taller if so much of him was not bent under in the form of feet. Besides being known as a fellow with a healthy appetite, he has the ability of a good singer and he also made a good “Martin” in “Green Stockings.” MARGUERITE O’BRIEN “Bugs.” "A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” Marguerite belongs to that bunch which is always whispering in the halls, then laughing and looking mysterious. They have a monopoly on her and we do not know her as well as we would have liked. AUGUST COTTON “Gus.” “A sunny spot of greenery.” Cotton, the Frenchman with wavy dark hair and rosy cheeks; a friend to all, an enemy to none. Our future chemist. ELLEN FOLAND “Melinda.” “All’s one to her; above her fan she’d make sweet eyes to Caliban.” Ellen arrives in her Ford from the country each Monday, but nevertheless she always is in the swim of things. Noted for her hair dressing and Elizabeth. Her one fear is that a certain country fellow will find out what she said about him.'I' II E C R E S (: E N 'I' 2:i FRANCIS KEYSER “Pinchy.” “lie who blushes is not quite a brute.” Francis has one fatal weakness— fear of I lie fair sex. He is noted for disentangling knotty problems in solid, and as a second Paderewski. Francis bears no relatin to Wilhelm. MIRIAM HAAS ‘‘ Swe; tie. ” ‘ ‘ As merry as the day is long. Your hcaity laugh will long be remembered by your great host of friends in E. H. S. We are sorry that you have such a terrible time deciding which fellow is the best but wish you the best of success. WILLIAM MORRIS "Willie.” “Great boys mak g eat men." Bill will certainly be missed next Fall for the 1920 class can never forget the t in ■ when Big Bill came lumbering into the A R. at 19’- minutes after eight. Willie is n 'te 1 for originating the “Morris Grin” the same that has illuminated bis map for years. GLADYS AREND “Peanuts.” “A pound of pluck is worth a ton of luck.” Our golden haired Gladys is a favorite with every one. We think she intends to take her place in a nickel and dime store ml tss some “Lockinvar” persuades her to change her mind. ORLANDO SIMMONS “Simmy.” “He who sleeps by day will hunger by night.” Orlando bears a striking resemblance to the movie actor, Bert Lvtell, and he seems to have all the acrobatic requirements of that personage. He has served out. his time now and we extend our aid to him in petitions for pardon as we earnestly hope that lie will leave H. S. this year at least.24 TIIE CRESCENT HAZEL SI DWELL “Sid I." “The blush is beautiful, but it is sometimes inconvenient.” Hazel, our little Quaker girl, always keeps you in a whirl. No, she’s not so meek, she’s got a will. If you don’t believe me, just ask “Hill.” MARION LONG “Feathers.” “Little fish are sweet.” Feathers hails from the country. A prominent member of the Ecclesia and a future Red Cress nurse to take care of “Jack.” HOWARD SMITH “Smity.” “Every scrap of a wise man's time is worth saving.” This bashful boy came from a family whose name is known in every work of the globe. lie is quiet, modest, unassuming but energetic, painstaking, earnest, patient, cool-headed and rather mechanically inclined. But above all he’s a good sport. • NORVAL PEARCE “Buddy.” “Call no man unlucky until he is married.” Buddy, the pest of the school, the star end on our famous eleven. He worked hard to graduate under the “Blue and Old Gold” and we’re proud of him. As to his abilities in dancing, ask a certain Sophomore. “Sid II.” “A laugh is worth a hundred groans in any market.” She is always in a hurry; She’s ever in a stem; Always hunting up more work than she lias time to do. TRULA SI DWELLTHE CRESCENT 23 CLYDE STATES “Statesy.” “Be first at a feast and last at a fight.” “Stilts” as a back guard was a wonder. Nothing hindered him from stopping fhe ball, except the ceiling and as for bis baskets, 0! My. He is not an egotist although he does look down on all the rest of us. GLADYS McCAMMON “Mickey. ’ “Splitting the air with noise.” Mickey, our little “Irish Colleen,” is noted for ''■ r excellency in her studies, her sparkling ' ■ winsome smiles and her flirting. A future "Alma Gluck" and actress as she proved as "Celia" in “Green Stockings.” HOWARD MOSIMAN “Mosie. “Keep your temper for no one else wants it. Howard is our champion athlete and captain of our football team. Ibis well known by the terrible cases which he develops. Mosie seems to have no regrets at leaving us, but we can’t say the same. RUTH LOYD "Babe." “She who means no mischief does it all. Ruth s little but mighty and especially in English class. She seems to have lots of trouble cf her own but we hope she will outgrow them and show her own true jolly self. RALPH SNELSON “Snick." “No one loves a fat girl, hut I’m an exception.” Snick, the fellow with an eye for business. A printer’s devil now, but a future editor, we hope.26 THE CRESCENT EMILY McCARTY “Mac.” “Music washes away from the soul the dust of every day life.” Long live our basket ball star. Emily is our mannish girl. Now we don’t mean a tomboy or nothin’ but just a womanly appearance with a man’s ideals. We hope to see her in congress in the course of time. DEXTER LEE “Dex.” “He had a face like a benediction.” Dex hails from the farm and is a very quiet fellow. But listen, you should have been at the ‘Club.’ He is not English ’cause he can sec through a joke before anyone else. MARGARET MICHEL “Peggy.” “Thoughts shut up want air and spoil.” Margaret is quite a little maid. And yet she’s not at all staid. No wedding bells for her will jingle, for she’s going to remain single. On the farm (If she can). KENNETH ZAHN “Kenny.” “All that glistens is not gold.” As Reddo’s name signifies he has red hair, and perhaps this explains why lie spends all the time from Dec. 1 to Nov. 30 at the famous summer resort, Kute’s-on-the-corners. It seems however, that a crowbar couldn’t separate Kenny from his grin. MARTHA PINOLE “Dutch.” “An honest countenance is the best passport.” We have reason to believe that Dutch is considering taking up work in the missionary fields of Africa as a secretary (?) to Rev. Arend. If she does we must quit call ing her Dutch for the Reverend will never be a Duke. THE CRESCENT 27 LAWRENCE SPOON ER “Specks.” “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” Roth of “Spooner’s” names seem to indicate that he is Irish and judging from his ever-readv smile he surely must hail from the ‘auld soii.’ Is now one of our brilliant History students and present indications point him out as a far-sighted Historian. HAZEL ROACH “Hay.” “When in doubt as to ‘him,’ don’t take him.” Hazel is a demure little country lass who on further acquaintance is found to be more dangerous than she seems. She had us all “skinned” when it came to English and was good as “Evelyn” in “Green Stockings” DeWITT TREES “Sister.” “He that wants should not be bashful.” DeWitt's curly hair, rosy cheeks and baby eyes are very misleading. We all know he isn’t as innocent as he looks. ELIZABETH PARKER “Anna.” “A true friend is forever a friend.” Our canary bird. She not only has a lovely voice but a face to match it and is one of the most universally esteemed girls of us all. At present she is interested in a band near here. MELFOR1) McCANN “Shorty.” “Brevity is the soul of wit.” Although not on the staff, this witty fellow was chief flunkey of the editors. What he lacks in size he makes up in brains and a sense of humor. lie is quite popular, especially with the girls and made a good “Robert Tarver” in “Green Stockings.” 28 THE CRESCEN T THOMAS DAVIES “Tommy.” “Let the great hook of the world be your principal study.” This star mathematician is a favorite with his teachers because of his quick correct answers. He is our only tme Welshman, but if they all shine like him we would like to have a dozen. May you make your mark in the world as you have in your school work, Thomas. M AR( 1ARET SWEENEY “Etta.” “A penny .for your thoughts.” Margaret, your rosy cheeks are the admiration of the boys and the envy of the girls. May their rosiness never fade and your gentle ways become not so. ESTHER YARLING “Red.” “Woman is most perfect when most womanly.” Esther has been with us for four years, although we did not get to know her very well because of her quiet and distant ways. Hut if you should meet her in that little burg of New Lancaster, watch out, you may be a victim of one of her jokes. EDNA STOOKEY “Key.” “Mingle a little folly with your wisdom.” Although Edna is very timid she is liked very much by her schoolmates. It is not known what her intentions are, but at any rate she is taking cooking lessons to prepare for the near future. ETHEL SNODGRASS “Peg.” “A lovely girl is above all rank.” Ethel is one of that ambitious branch of girls who wish to make a great name for themselves and so she became a star basket ball player. However, she is quite timid and demure until you know her.THE CRESCENT 29 JESSIE HILBERT “Jayde.” “A frugal wife is a mine of richness.” Jessie comes to us from Tipton High School, but we can’t say she isn’t as loyal to E. H. S. as we natives. She is a good student and a true friend. BONNIE BILLINGS “Bill.” “She alone is courageous who never despairs.” She gets peeved at the best of men, and makes them walk the chalk; Her favorite occupation is to talk and talk and— murmur. OPAL STECH “Steehy.” “A pleasant companion is as good as a coach.” Opal was our star basket ball player. "When she had the ball something M as doing. She has made many friends in E. II. S., but is known better by some one not in school. EUNICE MOCK “Pet.” “Wedlock is a padlock.” Eunice is one of our Latin stars. She is very quiet and keeps her thoughts to herself, yet we suspicion her future. May good luck go with vou, Eunice. RUTH UEBELE “Ruthie.” “Prefer to he good rather than seem so.” Ruthie is a very quiet, pious, unobtrusive girl. She has more friends than she realizes and she is one of those happy mortals M ho never get caught.30 THE CRESCENT HOWARD BAKER “Stuffy.” “One can love any man that is generous.” This startling personage is not a regular baker, but one of our boys returned from army life. He’s a jolly fellow and especially popular with feminity. He has worked unusually hard to get through with the class of ’I!).' Miss Harvey can vouch for it. NORA LEAVITT “A little J)it of powder, a little bit of paint, makes your complexion look what it aint.” She has worked hard and long to depart from old E. H. S. The shy little girl at Wiley’s. A future movie actress. Mid-Year Class History HE members of the mid-year class will never forget the memorable cold 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 new Freshmen. In May, 1916, they organized and Opal Haiselup was electee! president and Irene Wertzberger secretary and treasurer. Since the term was so nearly ended no active work was pursued but after a three-months’ vacation they returned to school as 2A’s full of energy and life. Since the oul officers had seen no active service, they were reinstated. The first class party was given on Hallowe’en, 1916, at the home of Opal Haislup, on South K street., This first class party will always live in the memory of the class members. As 3B's Fred Arend was elected president and Irene Wertzberger was re-elected secretary and treasurer. 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 and Opal Haiselup secretary and treasurer. In January. 1918, of all the pleasant things in high school they became those much adored, dignified Seniors. They re-organized and elected Charles Dick president, Irene Wertzberger vice president and Fred Arend secretary and treasurer. A Thrift Club was also organized and Irene Mott and Irvin Matchett were appointed on the Thrift committee. They had two pleasant parties this term, the first at the home of Charles Dick and the other at the home of Helen Starr. The next important social event was the Senior reception given May 17th in the gymnasium. The class members had long anticipat 'd this event and made it a grand success. But the one thing that they regret most is that they have left the dear old E. H. S. forever.

(Continued on Page 87)36 THE CRESCENT History of the Spring Class I HE Class of ’19 was the first “Freshie” class to enter the new E. H. S. building, and it seems to have affected them for they have never stopped doing things just a little more new and more lively than the other classes. The first year was spent mostly in learing how to chew gum and slip notes unnoticed. But the second year was destined to be more eventful. They were not long in organizing and choosing for their officers: President Howard Crouse Vice-President. Nancy Cox Secretary-Treasurer Marry Harrow Motto Remingare Non Fluitare Rowing Not Drifting Colors - Blue and Gold And for their yell— Ric Rac Whick Whine 1—9—1—9. Hurrah for the Blue Hurrah for the Gold Those are the colors we'll always hold. A big Hallowe’en party was given at Hazel Sidwcll’s. This seemed to start the ball rolling for a “wennie” roast was soon given at the home of Morris DeHoritv. Then a big bobsled ride out to Ellen Poland s. But the best entertainment of the year was a valentine party given by the 2A boys’ mothers in the H. S. Gym. The last parties given that year were at the lionise of Jeanette T jew is and Lowell Cochran. But all this fun and nonsinse did not stop the enthusiasm over the Sophomore basket ball team, which the Sophomores depended on for fame. In the Junior year there was a change oi officers and those chosen were: President Ray Gray Vice-President Win. Hiatt Secretary-Treasurer Nancy Cox Another “weenie” roast and general good time was held at Janet Courtney’s, after which came a Hallowe’en party at Ann Lewis’s. Esther Yarling entertained the class in March. At this time every one was buying Liberty Bonds, and the class of '19 deciding not to get behind in anything this far in the game, gave up their dream of an expensive reception for the 4A’s and bought two fifty-dollar Liberty Bonds. They also excelled in buying Thrift Stain ps. But they were still keeping a line on the basket bal Hearn, and it won the school championship. This made two championships, for as Presides they had won the championship in base ball. Nor did they lack talent for football. Then came the one big eventful year which was and will be full to the brim. The class started working early, the same officers were elected as were chosen as Juniors. The “flu” stopped things for a while but everybody worked harded when they got back. Owing to the “flu” scare, but one party was held the first part of the year, which was the old-time “weenie” roast out to Marjorie Jones’s. On New Year’s eve a big party was given at the home of Hazel and Trula Sidwell. Everyone had a glorious time, at least they stayed late enough to be terribly sleepy next day. In the middle of the year the 4B’s gave the 4A's their reception and in spite of Liberty Bonds, the “flu,” the war, put on a good line of entertainment and plenty to seat. Not long after a kid party was given at Gladys McCammon’s, and the little children enjoyed their ice cream cones, and animal crackers very much. Not many disobeyed the signs “keep off the grass” and so on. The Class play was given on May 2, called “Green Stockings," which was a big success. But athletics have not been forgotten. Every team on the schedule was beaten but one. The team went to the district tournament, but was beaten, which, of course, was never their fault. However, the Class of ’19 turned out four stars in basket ball. The reception, baccalaureate and graduation. are looked forward to with eagerness and quakings. A continuous picnic is planned for Senior Week. And He Got E in Chemistry! They laid him in a pine box Beneath the apple tree, And on his cheery tombstone This epitaph you’ll see. “ Willie was a drinkin’ But he will drink no more, For what lie tho’t was II-2-0 Was JI-2-S-0-4.” Loyd Jones, while attempting to harness a fractious mule, was kicked just south of the corn crib.T II E C II E S C E N T THE 4B CLASS HISTORY IIE Mid-Year ('lass of '20 entered High School shortly after Xmas. Up to that time they had received their stockings of nuts, candy, etc., joyfully, but now they decided to grow up. It was very hard and it took them a whole year to feel like they were able to organize their class. But the second year they had a meeting and elected for their officers: President Norval Pierce Vice President Miriam Haas Secretary-Treasurer Norval Proctor Two big parties were held that year. 011c at Miriam Haas’ and the other at Vevna Barlow's, and though they prided themselves on being grown up it was rumored that even the teachers present acted like children. The next year the officers elected were: President Harley Maddock Secretary-Treasurer Norval Proctor That year parties were given at the homes of Irene Mullen and Norval Proctor. The fourth year there was another election of officers and those elected were: President Ada Evans Secretary-Treasurer Norval Proctor This has been their busiest year, o”lv 1 alf of which is gone. Owing to the smallness of their class it has been very hard to get things fixed for the reception to be given the 4A’s, but they have succeeded. A big one is to be given May 23rd. Four parties have been given, one at the heme of Norval Procter, two at the home of Irene Mullen and one at the home of Mary Duncan. The first half of the first year is almost ended now and they can hardly wait 'till next year when they can seleet their pins and rings and be given a reception by some one else.THE CRESCENT 3D Junior History |NCE upon a time, on a bright sunshiny morning in the early part of September, a large group of boys and girls trooped up the front walk of the E. II. S. Glad, yet rather afraid to enter was everyone of the group. Finally that first day was over and after this came the end of the first week, and then things went very smoothly, nothing hindering and nothing exciting until promotion time, when this class passed into the “stale Freshv” stage. At this time in the spring of 1917, a class entered E. II. S., which looked rather green, but time showed some signs of improvement in the intellectual world. As classes could not organize until the second year, the only great event of the entire Freshman class was the great picnic, which everyone in the two classes looked forward to, (each to his own picnic). The next fall half of this class were Sophomores and eligible to the class organization. Mr. Edwards acted is chairman and the class elected the following officers: President Donald (Fat) Massey Vice President Marcella Koons. Secretary-Treasurer Gladys Daniels The smallpox scare, caused by a member of tins class was the only very important event of this year. Many notable parties were held throughout this year and all longed for the time to come when they would be Juniors. The other half of this class, when 2B’s, held a class meeting and elected officers as follows: President---------------Donald Mahoney Vice President---------------Byron Faust Secretary-Treasurer Mary Lee After organizing, thoughts were all turned to social affairs. Miss Edith Cockerham, Martha Charles and Mildred Morgan were the three girls who, each in turn, royally entertained the class. This term was finished with a glorious picnic at Gentry’s Grove, Peikins-ville. The following fall, the class returned to school, with the loss of only a few members. Among these few was the secretaray, Mary Lee. For the new secretaray Louise Clark was elected. This season only one party was given, this being at the home of Irene Lewis. Keeping the officers they had as Sophomores, with the exception that Carl Renner was elected vice president, this group has risen to be a very brilliant 3B class. Only one party has been given during the spring, this at the home of Miss Ruth Wershing. (Continued on Page 89)■THE CRESCENT 41 History of 2A and 2B Classes N September of 1! 17 a group of boys and girls from Elwood and the surrounding country came to the E. H. S. along with the Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. They were all happy as they entered the building in which they were to spend most of the time for the next four years, where they were to have much enjoyment, but at the same time must work very hard. In the first semester, after getting settled down to work they attracted the attention of all the teachers and many of the students of the other classes because of their ability to work and make high grades. In January of 1918 another group of boys and girls came to the High School. They soon proved to have the same ability towards work end making high grades as the class of Freshmen which entered in the fall. The most noted thing of the 1A class was their Basket Ball team, which was one of the best of any preceding Freshman class. The most enjoyable time of the 1A class was the picnic which was held in a woods near Orestes. In September, 1918, the same two classes entered the High School for another year. Both classes were much happier than they were when they first entered the building. The class which entered in the fall of 1917 were much happier because they would now be called Sophomores and would not be laughed at because of their mistakes, as they were when they were Freshmen and the class which entered in January of 1918 were glad because they had only one semester in which they would be treated as “Freshies. ” A meeting of 2B's was held in October for the purpose of organizing the class and the following was decided upon: President--------------Mary Broadbent Vice President Fred Beeson Secretary-Treasurer Virgil Green Colors------------Old Rose and Silver Flower--------------Lily of the Valley Motto “Mutual Help Gives Strength” Following this meeting the next important event was the party which was held at Irene Jenner’s and which proved very successful. Other parties were held at the homes of Mary Broadbent and Gladys Wann. They also were as successful as the first one. In January, 1919, the 1A class of the previous semester entered school with a much greater spirit than before, because they had completed their Freshmen year and were now 2B’s. They soon had a meeting to organize their class, and the result of which meeting was the following: President Joseph Cotton Vice President y Gladys Klurnpp Secretary Gladys Lewis Treasurer Irvin Wilson Colors Crimson and White Flower Pink Roses Motto “Labor Wins All” Following this meeting a successful party was held at the home of Gladys Lewis. All the Sophomores are looking forward to the next two years, and hoping to keep up the same record that they have in the past.THE CRESCENT 43 THE FRESHMEN CLASS “0 Tell Them They Are Men” |ES, tell them the innocent, that those days of leisure, spent snoozing in Miss Harry’s assembles, will not always last. Tell them that they cannot shirk their work as easily as you did in Miss Harvey’s English classes and have her give you 9 or 10 for not working as she did (not) do; that they cannot always get Miss Grosewege “rattled and red in the face” as you used to do; that all the classes are not so dry as the Latin class where more than one luckless student has slept in peace or written notes to----oh, someone. Yes, tell them, the unlucky ones, that all those days of leisure spent in the school room snoozing meant so much education lost that you felt the lack of so much later; tell them that while you loafed in Miss Harvey’s class you kept her busy marking down “goose eggs” in her little green book; tell them that every time you got Miss Grosewege rattled she left you in the mazes of a solid geometery problem to find your own way out as best you could: tell them that to make up for lack of interest in Latin class, Miss Cox makes history interesting for them—after 3 :30. “Alas, regardless of their doom The little victims play No sense have they of ills to come No care beyond today.” Oh, show them where round the green carpet stand, To seize their pray, the merciless, ruthless band. —NORVAL PIERCE.O'tore foot 6oy - WifA cAeeA} of t Ty - ■Same thmcj’6 E.H.S J fro Tac{ for .

Every few minutes she would smooth it out and read it over and this was the horrible news it carried: Western Union Telegraph Co. New York, N. Y. Miss Chloe Faherty: Sorry dear, will be married at St. Luke’s church at 6: :30. He there to be my maid of honor. Louise. Chloe gasped. 6:30 and it was not ten minutes past six. “Why must they always say they’re sorry?’’ he sobbed. “1 don’t see why they didn’t go ahead and do it and leave me to a peaceful evening with my teapot and parrot.’’ Soon, however, Chloe found herself half way un the stairway to her room in the ttals-bury Flats( elevator being out of order as usual), and congratulating herself that she had fifteen whole minutes in which to dr°ss and get to the wedding. After taking off her shoes with one hand and pulling hair pins with the other, she pushed her feet into her red satin boudoir slippers and start' d on a general rampage. No one could tell what ensued but ten minutes later found Chloe as sweet as ever in her new black dance frock, hair combed and .iust ready to mak» the finishing touches. Lick- ing up her little hand mirror, she surveyed her back. Horrors! Yes, but it was true! There were those yards of black tulle that had once been a big fluffy bow, hanging down her back limp and bedraggled as the feathers of some old wet Plymouth Rock hen. Grabbing her hat she ran across the hall into her neighbor’s room, not once thinking of knocking. There by the window sat a young man reading, what Chloe supposed to be some sort of millenial dawn dope, or somebody or others lives and looking as cool as an iced eoe. “Oh, why does he sit and grin at me so,” said Chloe to herself and added aloud. .“Please hurry and tie those strings in as respectable a looking bow as possible.” The young man muttered something about being glad to offer so small a favor and laid down his book as carefully as if it had been a dozen of eggs. Those were the longest moments of Chloe’s life but eventually she found herself at the foot of the stairs, motioning for a taxi and thanking her lucky ct»-« that she was going to remain an old maid forever and anon. The taxi was an obi and delinidated looking thing with a sign, “For Hire,” zig-zagging across the front of it. Hut why should she care if the driver did smell of tobacco, she would ride with him across tin ocean if he would get her to that beloved church. Finally they arrived at a moss covered building which she supposed to be the church. Rushing up the steps she pounded frantically on the door but there was no response and everything seemed as dark and stilt as a coffin. It slowly dawned (Continued on Page 70)4G THE CRESCENT The Tale-Tale Finger Print AD Tom supposed that his little joyride would end in anything but recreation he would not have planned it. Rut he did not. He had been working hard upon a very mysterious kidnapping case for nearly two weeks but as yet had secured nothing but a finger-print of a man suspected of being the chief of a ring of kidnappers. He had planned his little country trip as a restorative to his strained nerves at the insistence of his chief. Rut due to a breakdown, it seemed to be resulting very different. As darkness fell he had set out with begrimed face and hands in search of a place to put up for the night. Far back from the road almost entirely hidden by trees, he had discovered what appeared to be a low cottage. He turned up the crooked, slightly-worn path that led toward the cottage with hopes that he had succeeded in finding a sleeping place for the night. As he approached the cottage he seemed to sense an air of mystery about the place—an air that grew, as lie drew nearer into a strong feeling of uneasiness. He thought that this uneasiness might be due to the restless movements of the trees as the wind, heavy with a fine mist, swayed the giant limbs back and forth. Or it may have been due to the shattered state of his nerves. Soon he emerged into a small clearing surrounding the cottage. As he drew nearer the feeling of apprehension —of fear, came upon him more forcibly. The whole region around the cottage seemed deluged in mystery. Suddenly a sound which grated upon his distrought nerves and which sent his blood courcing through his veins in double quick time emerged apparently from the interior of the cottage. He stopped still, waiting for a repetition of the sound. But as it did not come he decided that the sound, a low, muffled moan, may have been caused by the movement of the trees or, more likely, it was the growl o fa watch dog disturbed by his approaching footsteps. It appeared as though lie had let his imagination run too far. Taking courage from these reflections he stepped up to the door. Then, suddenly, the strange half sob, half-moan, warning and at the same time bringing, broke again upon the heavy night air. Tom, with a determination to find the cause of this strangs sound opened the unlocked door and entered. He was greatly astonished at what he saw. He had stepped into an elegantly furnished room. At the fireplace a bed of red coals lay smouldering, casting a blood-red glare, now and then, which would fill the room and bring to light the rich carpets and draperies with a gastlv effect. Tom was greatly relieved to discover that what he had expected to find was j not there. After reflecting a moment he laughed aloud. How foolish he had been to imagine that anything could have happened in this lonely little cottage, lie had let his shattered nerves get beyond his control and in his imagination he had pictured some hideous crime being perpetrated within the cottage. After he had realized the absurdity of it all he dis- ' covered that he was sleepy. Since there appeared to be no one at home, he would at least spend the night here. Tom's nature would not let him do otherwise. He replenished the fire from a wood-box near the fireplace. The flames leaped up and by the increased light Tom began examining the room into which he had intruded. The room, comprising the entire cottage, was very richly furnished. At one end there were two windows which were evidently the only openings except the door through which he had I entered. The space between these windows was filled by a large oaken-framed mirror. The other end of the room was almost entirely taken up by a massive oak cabinet and a life-size portrait. A large iron lock secured the doors of the cabinet. An old-fashioned couch, upholstered in velvet occupied the corner of the room adjacent to the windowless wall and the one containing the fireplace. The couch attracted Tom’s attention immediately. It would afford a comfortable place for a nap. Looking at his watch he found that only four more hours remained until sunrise. ! Dropping upon the couch he lay trying to imagine who his unknown host could be and why he was absent at the present time, nis gaze wandered aimlessly about the room and finally rested upon the large mirror. The fire lighted the room in every corner and Tom could distinctly discern the reflection of the portrait in the mirror. lie studied it closely. It appeared to be the portrait of a man, advanced in age, tall and muscular with grey hair and beard. His right hand rested upon a stout gold-headed cans. The dark, grey eyes started from under the shaggy eyebrows with unusual brightness. The face bore the stem expression of a thinker and of a man capable of doing things. Still, Tom, as a good judge of character detected an expression about the mouth—or was it the eyes?—that showed that a trace of cruelty lurked behind those stern (Continued on Page 78) T II E C R E S C E X T 47 CHORUS GIRLS' CHORUS. jl •) HE High School Chorus is made up of M ■ those who take music—about three B E hundred and twenty-five in all. which meets three times a week throughout the year. A few weeks before the May Festival, extra time is given to practive. One feature of the chorus this year was the “Songs of the Allies,” containing the national airs of all the Allied countries—Great Britain, France, Italy and United States. This was featured at the May Festival. The other choruses also were were very good, especially the Nature choruses. The Girls’ Choruse oensists of the picked voices of the girls of the high school, which makes it possible to render very good music. We all know what good choruses the girls rendered at the May Festival last year and their work this year was even better than last. The Girls' Chorus sang two good numbers, “Pond Lillies,” and “The Call of Summer,” for the Department Club, March 3, 1919. The cantata, “The Three Springs,” which the girls gave at the May Festival was very beautiful. The story is of three springs that rise high on the mountain side under a willow (Continued on Page 76) THE EL WOOD HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRATHE CRESCENT ART. As no special time is given to Art, but few are doing this kind of work, but Miss Sehwacke savs the oil paintings portray skill and betoken Indiana artists for the future. One thing which will be greatly missed this year and which practically all Elwood looks forward to is the annual Art Exhibit. This has been the custom for years, but will not be given this year, because of Miss Scliwacke’s long absence and because of the influenza ban. But nevertheless some very-good work has been done in both departments under the excellent supervision of their mv instructor. ART AND SEWING. The departments of Art and Sewing were somewhat handicapped at the beginning of the term when the new instructor, Miss Sehwacke, became ill and had to return to her home. After some difficulty a substitute was secured who filled the vacancy very satisfactorily until miss Sehwacke’s return seventeen weeks later. Many new features have been introduced into the sewing department this year, such as millinery, pattern drafting, costuming and textile study. Some very pretty hats have been made by the II. S. pupils, which show promise of their makers being expert milliners in the future. DOMESTIC SCIENCE. The Domestic Science department was installed in the fall of 1915, under the supervision of Miss Eva Rummel. Since then the classes have been gradually increasing until the present year, when it was impossible to accomodate all students desiring the course. The will be no exhibition of food and food values this year for several reasons. First, there will not be any exhibits in the other departments; then it is impossible to avoid waste in planning the exhibit. Too much time is required to work up a theoretical exhibition according to the amount of good received, and it is more beneficial for the students to spend the time usually spent for this, on a special 49 study of the combination of foods and menu making. CAFETERIA. Because of the unusually good weather this winter the Cafeteria was not as profitable as last winter. But as the girls who prepare the food are now more experienced, the food and menus are much better than last year. These meals are given to the students and teachers at the lowest prices to be found in any cafe or restaurant and at the same time the girls receive invaluable training in preparing a larger amount of food than can be prepared in the ordinary I). S. class room. MANUAL TRAINING. The Manual Training department was installed in the old building January, 1909 and was moved in the fall of 1915 to the new High School building. The department has made splendid progress this year under the supervision of their new instrustor, Mr. Miller. The students have this year made the following articles; 6 library tables, 16 auto repair carts, 2 shaving stands, 3 bookcases, 1 round top table, 8 writing tables, 4 cedar chests, 3 serving tables, 1 hall tree, 1 magazine table, 16 pedestals, 7 piano benches, 15 waste baskets, 30 magazine racks, 1 bed, 1 settee, 1 side chair, 1 porch swing, 5 step ladders, 16 medicine cabinets, 6 rings, 8 match cases, 1 punching bag platform, 20 pairs candle sticks, 5 footstools, 7 humidores, 5 rolling pins, 6 sets of completed exercisers, 2 jewel trays, 7 nut bowls, 6 decorative bowls, 1 table lamp, 8 gavels, 18 cups, 9 receiving trays, 2 smoking stands, 16 pair napkin rings, 4 stocking darners. The shop is equipped with a band saw, universal saw, swifacer, joiner, a 5-wheel grinder, 4 lathes, which together are estimated at $2,000. The bench tools are valued at $1,000. The lumber and supplies per year cost about $800. This is a very popular department among the boys and they receive very valuable training here.T IIE CRESCENT f.1 GREEN STOCKINGS | BOUT the middle of April a dozen Seniors were chosen to be players in the annual Senior Class Play, to be given May 2. The play selected this year was “Green Stockings,” a comedy drama. Of course everyone wondered just what “Green Stockings” would have to do with it anyway. The seats went faster than for any previous class play, practically every one in the auditorium being sold and $140 was cleared. When the curtain went up all were surprised to see new scenery oh-h! But when the play started they seemed to just forget everything else and stared and listned in wonderment. Because of the quick and able property men, the audience did not have to wait long between acts. When the play was over and the people went home, they talked of it all the way and didn’t stop for several weeks afterwards. So you see it was a great success any way you look at it. After the play the actors went down to t’’e Cafe and had “one swell feed,” so they said. Chicken and strawberry shortcake air everything.

It is his great desire to-have the other two, Celia and Phyllis, married and off his hands so that he can go to his club and live. Bobbie Tarver and Phyllis are very much in love with each other and anxious to get married, but father will not consent until Celia is out of the way. There was an old country custom which required an elder sister to wear green stockings at the wedding of her younger sister if that younger sister married first. Celic has had to wear them twice already and cf course she is considered by all to be a permanent old maid. She is tired of being considered as being on the shelf and after returning from a week's vacation she decides to pretend to be engaged. The news is first told to Phyllis who becomes very much enthused and announces it to the whole house. Of course every one is glad and show it by their hearty congratulations. They all ask Celia about ber husband to be- She has to think (Continued on Page 94) 52 THE CRESCENT SENIORS. The Mid-Winter Reception. The High School days of the 4A Class ended with the reception given by the 4B Class in their honor. It was given in the High School Gymnasium, which was decorated in the colors of the two classes, blue and gold for the 4B’s and black and white for the 4A’s. The 4A Class Will and the 4B Class prophecy were read as part of the program. The event of the evening was a playlet entitled “A Day in School.” About twenty seniors took the parts of the teachers and students. Miss Cox and Miss St. Clair, were especially imitated, as well as Mr. Edwards. Each act was a scene from some class room. The last act was a funeral scene in which the Dignity of the evening was buried. The west corrider was converted into a dining hall, with a continuous table the entire length of it. Ferns and sweet peas completed the decorations. The placards were in the form of baskets, each having a verse or quotation characteristic of its owner. Almost everyone responded to the toastmaster's call with a clever toast. JUNIORS. The Junior Class, as has been the custom in previous years, started the social functions of the year by a marshmallow toast at the home of Ethel Starr. Unfortunately the entire party was led into a burr patch on the way lo the fire. This, however, did not lessen the fun of the evening nor their appetites. The class have also given very interesting parties at the homes of Marcella Koons, Arthur Kiefer and Agnes Singer. SOPHOMORES. The Sophomores are a very interesting and lively bunch and have lots of pep. This year they have given three parties. The first one at the home of Irene Jenners, where everybody had a dandy time. The second at the home of Mary Broadbent, where the big eats were to be had. And the third at the home of Gladys Wann where everybody had a good time. They will make some class when they “grow up.”T II E CRESCENT 53 Sept. 9. School starts. Doomed for nine months. Sept. 11. Preshies are the same green bunch as usual Sept. 13.

Sometimes these small towns produce some mighty good stuff and Clayton surely did. He deserves much credit for the Basket Ball team’s showing and he is well liked by all. We are hoping to have the pleasure of Mr. Miller’s presence next year. CAPTAIN MOSIMAN Howard Mosiman, our football captain, led the team in nice style and although we had no coach, he took the responsibility upon his own shoulers. On the football field he makes the players work and is an excellent player himself. CAPTAIN HERSHEY Cloyd Hershey has another year and will come out strong.

We had no coach as Mr. Ray Cochran left us last year. His absence was felt as he was, without doubt, the best football coach in Indiana. Then too, the influenza epidemic, which caused the closing of all schools during four weeks, the football season, curtailing our schedule to two games. Captain Mosiman deserves much credit for the gooil showing of the team. Much good material was left from last year to build up a team. “Dick” star halfback for three years started the season, but was laid up. Mitchell, Hershey and Gray, all backfield men, were also out. Our line, however, was composed of mostly green material. Henderson, Dellority and Pearce deserve mention for playing a steady, consistent game. We also wish to thank Mr. Miller for his time and trouble incurred in overseeing the fellows and helping them in training. Our two games were with Greenfield and Sheridan. Greenfield vs. Elwood. Greenfield arrived bright and early Saturday morning and were a husky bunch of warriors. Referee Davis, of Indianapolis, called the game promptly at 2:30. It started off with a rush, Greenfield scoring two touchdowns on long forward passes. Elwood's defense tight- ened up and soon got possession of the ball. From then on it was a mere procession to Greenfield’s goal.. Quarterback Gray used straight fooball almost the entire game. Right-end Dellority got away with a nice forward pass, racing across the Greenfield goal for a touchdown. The back field also played a good game, seldom failing to make the necessary gain. Lewis sustituted for Mitchell when Mitchell’s ankle was twisted. There were no individual stars, everybody playing a good game. Final score, Elwood 27, Greenfield 14. Sheridan vs. Elwood. Our team arrived in Sheridan about 10:30, all going over in machines. The game was called at three o’clock on the so-called campus of the Sheridan High School. The fray started off with Sheridan rushing the ball to El-wood’s- ten-yard line, where they were held, Singleton of Sheridan scored a touchdown at-the end of the first half on an end run. Elwood came back in the second half, and the ball was carried to Sheridan’s four-ya: d line where it. was held. Singleton picked up a fumble and made another touchdown for She:idan. Mitchell caught a long forward pass and was on his way for a touchdown when he was tackled by the Sheridan quarterback. The game end d 12 to 0 in favor of Sheridan.58 T II E CRESC E N T DICK Charles Dick. “Pigmy.” Baseball ’16, '17. Football '16, ’17, ’18, ’19.

LEWIS Archie Lewis. “Bud.” As substitute half back did some mighty good work in the Sheridan game. Archie is only a Sophomore and he will surely be some player next year. MORRIS Wm. Morris. “Big Bill.” Football, ’19. Bill is the largest boy in our school and played a good game at guard this season. Bill lived in the country and built up beef and when he became a Senior he played football and held his place in good style . PALMER Dean Palmer. Football ’19. Dean played guard for us and though inexperienced held his opposition in nice style. He has several more years in E. II. S. and he surely looks good.THE CRESCENT 61 MASSEY Donald Massey. “Fat.” He played one game for ns at Greenfield, but that showed his quality and he sure tore up his opponents. When he was seen with a muddy face, red hair and his 200 pounds, he was enough to scare his opponents stiff. HENDERSON Lewis Henderson. “Tubby.” “Bulldog.” Our star tackle. Tubby is sure a fighter as fighters go. He is no ladies’ man and made his every opposition look sick. INDIVIDUAL POINTS SCORED.

Out of nineteen games played. two were lost. Coach Miller deserves much credit for the efficient coaching and handling of the “boys.” The district tournament at. Anderson is the one event which darkens our record. After winning thirteen games in succession the team went to Anderson over-confident and was beaten by Lapel, whom we had defeated twice this season. The season ended in a round of banquets which showed that the efforts of the team were appreciated. BASKET BALL GAMES. Marion 27. Elwood 31. Marion was our first victim this year. We started the season off nicely bv defeating then at Marion in a fast contest. Noblesville 16. Elwood 36. Our fellows handed Noblesville a severe defeat when we met them here. The game was never in doubt and as the Noblesville boys decided to go home before the game was over, we can’t tell just how big a score we might have made. Frankton 15. Elwood 50. Coming to Elwood, touted as being an exceptionally strong team, Frankton failed to deliver the goods and went down to defeat. Windfall 3. Elwood 14. E. II. S. took a load of rooters to the Windy City on a rainy night. The game was one of the poorest and dirtiest specimens of basket ball that could possibly be played. We won however, and came home; not with colors flying, however, but soaked and wet. Fairmount 34. Elwood 29. During the “flu” ban we journeyed to Fair-mount and were taken over. On a little floor rightfully called a shoe box, real basket ball was impossible. Lapel 27. Elwood 29. In the most spectacular contest of the season we defeated Lapel at Lapel. At the end of the first half the score was 22 to 6 in favor of Lapel, hut in the last half the fighting five came hack and simply played rings round the Stony-creek Township lads. Mitchell covered himself with glory in this game by scoring 23 points. Windfall 15. Elwood 62. Windfall came to Elwood for the return game and were given a good walloping. The game was a farce as far as good basket ball was concerned. Fortville 24. Elwood 28. Same old story. Went to Fortville and came home with the" bacon. Fortville seemed to think Elwood rough but when they grow up to be men they will think different. After arriving home all the fellows indulged in a T-bone steak which made them sick. Atlanta 18. Elwood 35. This happened the next night after the Fortville game. Atlanta was helpless after the firse few minutes and the final score was 18-35 in favor of E. II. S. Atlanta 16. Elwood 26. Next Wednesday night we went to Atlanta and defeated them again. Westfield 23. Elwood 35. In this game Coach Miller tried out a new lineup with States, our star backguard at center. This worked pretty well but we resorted to the old lineup afterwards. Marion 27. Elwood 35. Marion came to Elwood to take our scalps and went home scalped. This was one of the most farcial games of the year, Elwood scoring at will and merely playing with Marion. The “boys” from Marion were sure very sore. Summitville 12. Elwood 53. We surely had an easy time with Summitville. The Summit star, Ice, melted and did not show up as was expected for Jim Gray stuck to him like a burr. Brownsburg 18. Elwood 44. The husky team from the southern part of tile state came with high hopes of victory but were sent home with the short end of the score.

Lapel, at Tournament THE CRESCENT MITCHELL “Mitch,” our star forward is one of the fastest men Ehvood High has ever had. While playing the floor well his point record is enviable. He plays the game all the time and in critical moments comes across with a goal. MOSIMAN “Mose” is our center. A big man, fast and with lots of endurance. He helped to make the team what it was this year. Mose has the record of getting the jump on nearly all centers he has played against and plays an all round good game. HERSHEY “Hersh” is a good hard working forward and you could always count on him to come across with his quota of points. While not high man in the scoring of points, he worked the door to good advantage. GRAY “Jim” is a steady guard, in the game all the time. Ray started the season as floor guard and held his job all the time. His specialty is to run his men along the side lines and get a held ball. At most times he is good for six to ten points per game.TIIE CRESCENT 65 AUSTILL “Bill” is another long chap with a shape like a straw, but nevertheless, a good center. Bill did not get in many games this season, but when a good man was needed he was l ight there. KONOLD “Dave” is a new man at basket ball, but showed up well and will make a wonderful guard next year. If any one wanted to rough it up and picked on Dave they soon found that they had picked the wrong man. DellORITY “Toots” played a good heady game in all that lie was in, but his lack of weight handicapped him. Several times during the season he was used and showed he was a good dependable man. STATES “Slats,” our back guard, played his last season for E. II. in grand style. States is long and lean and it is almost impossible to shoot over his head. At times he would bring down the house by a spectacular shot from the center of the floor. Critics say States is the best back guard we ever had.66 T IIE C Ii ESC E N T GIRLS’ BASKET BALL TEAM Broadbent, forward; Pugh, forward; Sidwell, forward; McCarty, center; Cullipher, guard; Snodgrass, guard; Billings, guard. The girls basket ball team was composed of some very good material. McCarty, center, was one of the country corn feds who make their opponents sit up and take notice. From lack of coaching the girls lost the only three games they played, Windfall and Summitville. The game at Windfall was a mere farce as the Elvvood girls played boys' rules and had about thirty-five fouls called on them.' The game at Summitville was hard fought, but the Summitville girls won. Wnidfall again defeated E. II. S. at Elwood, ten to seven in one of the hardest fought girls’ games ever seen here. With a coach next year the girls’ team should be the best in the history of the school.

Dropping hack limply against the portal of the door, thinking to herself that she looked very much like the fainting heroine in a five cent movie, Chloe shut her eyes. Upon opening them she let them dwell for a moment on her feet. But only for a moment, for there blinking up at her were those red satin boudoir slippers. They actually looked as if they grinned at her. Now what was there to be done? All the taxis whizzing by were, loaded and none could be gotten at tiiis hour. She could not walk up the street with everybody out to supper with those terrible slippers on, or she might just as well give up her job. There was nothing left but to withdraw to some poor little restaurant and wait ’till the wee small hours, then crawl home like the neglected little girl that she was. She threaded her way through the crowd to what seemed to be a desirable restaurant and seated herself at one of the little tables. After giving her order and tucking her feet well under her dress, she relaxed a little and regarded her fellow sufferers. At a table near by sat a short and fat looking man, clad (in the diamonds) black and white check suit and faultlessly shining shoes, “nouveaux riche” of New York. There was only one thing which he lacked. In the center of the front plait of the much plaited and stiffly starched shirt, there should have been a ruby. While Chloe was making a tour of his characteristics, her lunch arrived and she began on it like a hungry little beggar. Getting about a fQurth of the way through, she was just starting to take a mustard (fickle out of the large imitation cut glass dish and it slipped (as pickles have a way of doing) and bang, there it went right across the room, landing nicely on that stiffly starched shirt exactly where the ruby should have been. Then there was one great commotion and a great bustle of waiters, during which Chloe grabbed the dish of mustard pickles and shoved them under the table. She was just straightening up when there sat down across the table from her the young man who had been reading the “men’s lives” book and looking as slow and easy going as ever. Well he certainly was nervy. “Good evening, Miss Fahert.v,” he drolled, while Chloe shut her lips together tighter than ever and picked up her hand bag to depart, when the young man reached down and grabbed the mustard (tickles with a look (Continued on Page 72)T IIE CRESCENT 71 We pay 4 per cent Interest on Time Deposits The First National Bank Members of the Federal Reserve Bank“Live” Men Appreciate This Store and the Clothes it Sells Th is store has justly earned its slogan ‘‘Style Headquarters,” because of its leadership in style for Men and Young Men.

And you just dare to get up and I’ll let the stuffy little man know who the culprit was.” She put down her hand bag and resumed her eating (for she really was hungry). The young man continued to talk between bites while Chloe sipped her eat and answered in monosyllables. Soon they finished eating and Chloe sat still. So did he. A quarter of on hour passed. “Well, are you going to sit there 'till doomsday?’ cried Chloe. “If my doom is to sit with you, it will be very pleasant.” answered this surprising young man and so it went. She couldn’t leave for there were those horrible red satin slippers. So time passed and Chloe started to write her will on her menu card, thinking that if she ever got out she would never, never speak to this young man again. At this she began to inspect him. Well .------ he did have rather good-looking eyes and such a nice square jaw and what a pleasant grin. But she shut her mouth tighter than ever. ‘‘Oh come on, thaw out, you know you’re stranded here with those red satin slippers and the disgrace of throwing mustard pickles at millionaire patrons.” This from the young man across the table. Well, after it was so, Chloe warmed up and by 9:30 she had told him the story of the evening. lie then became confidential. “You know When you refused to meet me at the suggestion of yourjemployer, Mr. McGee, (Chloe remembered well), 1 made up my mind you would meet me, so I followed you up.

She wouldn’t ever have to speak to him again if she did consent to be introduced just to get her slippers. So the abominable red slippers were hidden in the man’s big pockets and Chloe was wrapped in her warm fluffj evening wrap and piloted to a taxi. Outside a drizzling rain had set up and everything looked so dark and dreary. .Just as the young man was going to open the taxi door for her, a fire whistle set up its dismal howl and when lier escort climbed in and sat down deside her, Chloe just eouldnt fiud il in her heart to say anything about it. Leaning back in her seat and feeling more contented than she ever had, Chloe gave a little sigh. After all he did have such very nice eyes.

Tom decided that it was an exceptionally line portrait to bring out the features of the figure with such startling reality. Suddenly Tom started violently. Something had moved in the mirror. As he realized what was happening lie seemed paralyzed with fear. The figure in the mirror, as if suddenly assuming life, was slowly and silently moving to one side! Finally it passed beyond the scope of the mirror. Tom stared a full minute at the mirror in which a black rectangular space had appeared where the portrait had been. Then he turned his gaze upon the mysterious wall. Where the portrait had been he saw a large opening in the wall. The portrait had covered a secret door! Hy the dim light of the fire Tom could see that a flight of stairs led from the secret door into the darkness below. In all probability the opening had been uncovered by some unknown person at the foot of the stairs. Tom knew that he must find some place of concealment before this person made his appearance. lie had a suspicion that some great mystery lurked below at the end of the flight of stairs—that some hideous crime was being, or had been, committed in the dark underground chambers. If not why this secret door—why this feeling of uneasiness. (dancing hastily about the room he discovered a space between the cabinet and sidewall which would afford an excellent place of concealment. He squeezed into this place just as someone entered the room through the secret door. Tom could see that the man who had entered was tall and the white hair testified that he was well-advanced in age, although he was swift in his actions and moved with the ease of a man in the prime of life. This Tom noticed as the man walked to the cabinet, unlocked the heavy lock and took from a shelf an overcoat which he put on and disappeared through the door that Tom had entered. Tom waited a moment to be sure that he had gone, then slipped from bis hiding place. He noticed that the man had left the secret door open. Why could he not enter and solve for himself the mystery of the dark passageway? Still he was not sure there was any mystery there. He did not wish to be prying around something that did not concern him. As he stood pondering over what he should do he was suddently interrupted. From somewhere far down the dark passageway came the low, muffled moan once more. There was no (Continued on Page 80)THE C R E S C E N T 79 There’s No Place Like Home We believe in the institution called marriage. We believe no man lias reached the fullness of life until he has a household of his own. We believe a man should take unto himself one wife. Human tradition and human law require that, having done so, he shall furnish her with food and shelter. So far as shelter is concerned, to rent a room, or a few room,s or a house somewhere, fulfills the letter of that law and tradition. We doubt very much, however, about it fulfilling the spirit of them. We believe that a woman may very properly demand that the shelter that is furnished by her husband shall be theirs in fact as well as in name. We believe that if we were a woman we would demand it. We may be making trouble for some prospective bridegroom in this town, hut nevertheless, we suggest to the bride-to-be that his ability or his desire to furnish her a home is a pretty good test of his character and the quality of his affection. We do not mean that no man should marry until he has the means with which to build. But he should not marry until lie has the means to begin building or to begin Now — having begun to build or to buy, it means years, perhaps, of self-denial.

Someone was being tortured cruelly and in great need of assistance. He must hurry. Recklessly he dashed into the secret passage and started down the steps. • Without warning he slipped on the damp, uneven stone steps and rolled to the foot of the stairs. How long he lay there dazed by the shock of his fall he could never know. When he came to, he found himself in a large room well lighted with electricity. The source of the current was a puzzle to Tom. He hurriedly arose to his feet and began examining the room. It appeared to be one quite similar to those used by the anti-slavery people as stations for the “under-ground railway.” On a large table against one of the walls, were many small pieces of mechanism. From these numerous wires, large and small, rose in spirals to a switchboard over the table. Tom, as an amateur electrician was much interested in these but could not identify a single instrument. Suddenly, while he was engaged in examining the instrucents, he felt a tingling sensation in the bottoms of his feet. He straightened up instantly but found that he could not move his feet. Gradually a numbness siezed him below the knees and began creeping slowly upward. He tried desperately to move but his will power seemed suddenly to have deserted him. Even his mind seemed to have been affected. He could not think clearly. He could not imagine what had happened. Vaguely he wondered if he had touched some live wire and an electric current was passing through his body. The room seemed to be growing dark. In the midst of his reflections his senses left him entirely. When his senses returned he was still standing. His thoughts were all awhirl. Gradually the room was becoming lighter as his mind became clearer. The whole lower part of his body seemed paralyzed and although the full control of his senses were gradually returning he could move neither arms nor feet. As the room became lighter Tom noticed a figure standing by the switchboard whom he recognized as the white-haired man whom he had supposed had left. After Tom had fully recovered the use of his senses he stared at the man. Here by the better light he could examine the features of the man more closely. Something seemed familiar about him. Suddenly Tom remembered. The portrait over the secret door bore a strange resemblance to this man. Yet this could hardly be so. This slim, white-haired man (Continued on Page 82)Frank E.

Yet, as Tom’s eyes met those of the older man lie was startled by the resemblance. They were the same eyes staring from tinder the same shaggy eyebrows with the same brightness and intensity. But in the depths of the dark eyes Tom detected a wild furtive light, which made him wonder if he was looking into the eyes of a wild, insane man. Tom’s reflections were broken up by a chuckle from the stranger. The sound of his voice convinced Tom that he had to deal with a mad man. He began speaking in a high, tense voice, while the muscles of his face twitched nervously. “Been prying into my business, eh!” he said. “Well, if it is ray business you want to learn, you’ll learn it soon enough,” and he laughed although his strained face showed no signs of mirth. He continued: “Well, my friend, you are welcome and have come at the right time. Providence has favored me by sending you to help me in mv work. Without you”—here Tom made an effort to speak but found that he could not. The other noticing, hastened to explain: “No, my friend. No good will come of that. You are under the influ- ence of one of my inventions. Perhaps you have not noticed that you are standing on a raised circular platform. While you remain there you are completely in my power.” He turned to the switch-board and continued. “These switches control the parts of your entire body. You are aware that your arms are absolutely useless at present. As I advance this lever you will observe that you regain the control of your right hand below the wrist.” As he spoke he advanced one of the mall levers, whereupon Tom instantly found that he had full control of the use of his hand. He was greatly amazed as he realized what a genius this man must be to have invented such a device. As the man continued his amazement increased. “This lever,” he continued, indicating one slightly larger than the rest, “as you see is advanced a few notches. It controls the whole body and mind, and the smaller ones control the separate parts. I consider this lever the most powerful of them all. When it is advanced to a certain point it completely destroys the memory of the victim. He becomes as helpless as a babe, and although he may begin life anew, no power on earth can restore his old facilities.” As he continued the wild light leaped upTIIE CRESC EN T 83 Suits and Overcoats Embodying many dominating features.

GARMENTS 123 South Anderson Street in his sunken eyes anil his voice grew more tense and high pitched. “It is concerning this invention that I need you. As yet my tests have never met with success, but I believe that I have now perfected my device. I shall use you as the subject of my experiement. But, before we proceed there is one good quality of my invention of which I have not spoken. You will, after being subjected to the treatment, have the advantage of your excellent physical condition. With this advantage you may live from twenty to sixty years longer than you would ordinarily. It is this idea of prolonging life that has encouraged me to invent such a device. Now that you are aware of the con-.ditions of the experiement we will proceed. But first remember, you have brought this upon yourself bv snooping about my premises.” As he finished speaking he reached for the lever and advanced it slowly, watching his victim closely. Suddenly to Tom, came a blinding flash of light, followed by a deafening crash. lie felt, a sharp pain in his head and seemed to be flying through the air. Then his senses left him entirely. When consciousness returned Tom was still in the underground room. A faint light came through a large hole in the ceiling. As his eyes became accustomed to the darkness he made out the figure of the white haired man lying motionless below the switchboard. Extricating himself from the debris he approached the silent figure. By the dim light he examined what proved to be the dead body of the inventor. One hand and arm was burned to a crisp and his pale face, with eyes staring and mouth opened, was twisted into a horrible expression. In the other hand he clutched a bit of white paper. Tom stooped and pnlled the paper from the stiff fingers and examined it. At first he thought it was but a blank paper, but suddenly his attention was drawn to a blurred spot upon the clean surface. It appeared to be a print of the inventor’s soiled finger. But it interested Tom more than an ordinary finger print. He hastily took from one of liis pocket, a photograph of the fingerprints of the kidnapping case suspect. Placing it beside the other paper he could not mistake the resemblance of the prints. Then this man had been the chief of the kidnappers. No doubt he was the ring, too. Tom shuddered as he guessed as to what ues the inventor had made of his kidnapped victims. Who else could have been the subjects of his unsuccessful tests? Tom hastened to leave the place. Upon84 THE CRESCENT f Winters Lumber Co. 1911 South B Street emerging from the cottage the mystery of his deliverance was solved. The drizzly rain had changed into an electrical storm. Over the spot Tom figured the underground room to be, a large tree lay shattered by a bolt of lightning. He discovered that the tree was hollow. Through this hollow trunk a heavy wire had been stretched, which now lay tangled and twisted nearby. This revealed the source of the inventor’s electric current. Tom left the scene of his experiences with the belief that the inventor had been punished for his crimes by a far more just judge than any mortal. —CLOYD HERKHEY. This Is a Dirty Shame.

(Continued from Page 61) It is eight months later and Celia decides that she has had enough fun out of her supposed engagement, so she puts an announcement in the Times of the death of Col. Smith. Of course everyone is grief stricken when they read it and are all afraid to tell Celia but she reads it herself in view of all. Later, Col. Smith, having seen the announcement of liis death, comes to Faraday Hall under the name of Vavasour, and pretending to have been a close friend of the Smiths. He is received by Phyllis, whom he questions as to where the lovers met, when they became engaged and all about it, so that he will not make mistakes when he later meets Celia. Celia is very much surprised and alarmed when Col. Vavasour announces the purpose of his visit, but finally gains control of herself. They have a long talk concerning Smith, after which Celia realizes what she has done and what a fool she has made of herself before the Colonel, hut is very much relieved when he goes. But as it happened Mr. Faraday had caught him as lie was leaving and had persuaded him to stay over until the next day. Of course Celia doesn't know what to do for she just can’t face him again after all that has happened, so she decides to go with Aunt Ida to Chicago on the night train. Just as they are about ready to leave Smith returns and finds Celia in the room alone. He has in the meantime fallen in love with her and she has become infatuated with him also. He tells her that he is sorry for coming as he did but that the joke was more on him than it ever was on her. lie explains that his name really is Vavasour as well as Smith. After a little persuasion she gives in and consents to marry him and so Phyllis can be married after all and everybody is happy.
