One fine, Warm day, four years ago, Went passing thru our door, Twelve score Freshmen, No less Wise-men, Their voices all a-roar. Confusion reigned in E. H. S. They could not find their rooms. But soon that fall, Was settled all, Then tests began to boom. The lessons, tho strange, so hard and long, Were conquered by them all. These Freshmen true, Tho Wise-men too, 'Came Sophies in the fall. And so they strove from year to year, Some dropping by the Way, That goal to see Which was to be Commencement as their day. The time has come for this Class of ours Nineteen hundred nineteen, To bid adieu To this dear school To teachers, pals, and team. The efforts of the faculty That helped us to this day, We'll ne'er forget This one great debt, As victors will We pay. In leaving you, dear E. H. S., And speaking all in truth, You are the best By every test, Is what we say to you. We now go take our places there With the Alumni folk. Our Work here done, Another begun, We start with cheer, not loath. Georgia M. Burt, '19 9 ifiatnrg nf the Qllaaz 1515 The year of 1915 will always be remembered by the Class of 1919. In that year 233 Freshmen entered High School. We were fresh, green, anything you will, but we didn't feel it. We all felt that the life of E. H. S. depended upon us. We started out to keep it going. Whether we did or not this history will tell. Our Freshman year has little of historical value in it beyond the daily routine of school life. Yet we entered a few activities and thus identified ourselves with High School life. The Freshman- Sophomore Girls' "Y-Hi" elected two of its officers, Georgia Burt and Helen Holcombe from our class, the Freshman-Sophomore Boys' "Hi-Y" chose Paul Stewart of '19 President. We were off the ways and started at last. With the coming of Sept., 1916, we held our heads a little higher and pitied the incoming class. We could do so now because we were Sophomores with all the privileges that the name entails, but, alas! we were only 143 in number, 90 having fallen by the way. This year we entered every branch of school life. We were repre- sented in the English Club by Mildred Corfman, Secretary, in the Girls' Glee Club by Gladys Williams, Secretary, in the orchestra by nine members, in the Freshman-Sophomore "Hi-Y" by Allan Bates, President, and Ray Baker, Secretary, in the Freshman- Sophomore Girls' "Y-Hi" by Florence Starr, President, and Mar- garet Klein, Treasurer, on the "Elyrian" by Eva Mackey and Robert Savage, and in Athletics by Ray Baker. A large majority of the class were active members in these various organizations. We even tried our hand at interior decorating and all who remem- ber the auditorium, Christmas, 1916, know the results. In the spring of 1917 we lost four of our fellows thru enlistment. They were: Tom Greer, Jimmy Dillon, Don Barber, and Edwin Morgan. We are all proud to call these fellows classmates. Yet while we were active in all the activities in and about our school we did not altogether neglect the class room. Any of our teachers will tell you that Eva Mackey was our honor student for this year. Nineteen Seventeen found us Juniors, 132 in number, ready to "carry on" for another year. Our class was organized this year, the first meeting being held Oct. 31, 1917. At this time the fol- lowing officers were elected: Allan Bates, President, Ray Baker, Vice-President, Helen Holcombe, Secretary, and Mildred Corf- man, Treasurer. As usual the Class of '19 was represented every- where. In the Glee Club by 15 girls with Isabelle Robson, Presi- dent, in the Orchestra by eleven members, in the Literary Society by twenty-four members, while almost every girl belonged to the Friendship Club KY-Hij or Patriotic League. We were represented on the staff of the "Elyrian" by Don Savage and Ray Baker, man- 10 agers, Eva Mackey and Mildred Corfman, editors, while in ath- letics we were represented by Art Lockard, Allan Bates, Ray Baker, Perry Daly, Harry Armstrong, and Glen Davis. The last big event of our Junior year was the J unior-Senior Reception given by our class in the High School, April 26. This affair was a big success, and our class was justly proud of it. Yet, again, while our Junior year was full of work outside the Class Room, We, nevertheless, maintained our record there and exhibited the same spirit that had characterized our Work of the preceding years. In closing our Junior year let me mention the enlistment of Arthur Lockard and William Head. September, 1918, proved the goal reached. We were now "dig- nified and studious UD" Seniors, seventy-one in number. To the Faculty We largely owed our position. Their kind help and care eased our Way considerably, and We realize that no Words of ours can adequately thank them. Yet We hope to show by our after lives that their teachings were not in vain. Members of the Faculty of Elyria High School, we try to express our sincere thanks to you. We now occupied a high position, and one which carried much work With it. We were into everything. In the Senior-Junior "Hi-Y," With Ted Smith, President, and Herman Lovejoy, Secretary, in the girls' Friendship Club, with Gladys Williams, President, in the Senior French League, with Naomi Marsh, President, Josephine Lockard, Vice-President, Helen Holcombe, Secertary, and Mildred Austin, Treasurer, in the Spanish Club, with Louise Johnson, President, and Glen Davis, Treasurer, in the English Club, With Eva Mackey, President, and Muriel Reisinger, Secretary, in the Orchestra, with Walter Hines, Ass't Director, and Helen Holcombe, Sec. and Treas., on the "Elyrian," with Eva Mackey, Editor-in- Chief, Leo Martin, Business Manager, and Mildred Corfman and Walter Hines. The outstanding event in Athletics this year Was the defeat of Lorain in Football, Oct. 6, 1918, with a 9--0 score, which left no arguments. On the Varsity were Ray Baker, Allan Bates, Robert Savage and Perry Daly. Baker was also Captain of the Varsity Basketball Team. The Senior class this year had a basketball team captained by Herman Lovejoy and second to none in the Inter-Class League. Practically all the members in the class were active in these various organizations. Social life during our last year was rather "conspicuous by its absence." This was due largely to the prevalence of "Flu"-in the first part of the year. The first dance held was an impromptu one, celebrating the defeat of Lorain. Our reception to the Juniors, which was to have been held Oct. 31, 1918, Was postponed on ac- count of the afore-mentioned "Flu," and was held March 14, 1919, in the Tech Building. The Reception Play, "A Case of Suspensionj was ably presented by a talented cast. In April the Juniors ten- ii 7 B ,J dered us a reception which will always be remembered by the Class. May 28-29, we gave our class play, "What Happened to Jonesf' The following were in the cast: Robert Savage, Allan Bates, Her- man Lovejoy, Glen Davis, Milton Stearns, Perry Daly, Leo Mar- tin, Mildred Corfman, Margaret Klein, Harriet Sheffield, Marjorie Francis, and Gladys Slater. The usual social good times prevailed at graduation as they have done in years past. Our class reorganized in Sept., 1918, at which time the fol- lowing officers were elected: Ray Baker, President, Isabelle Rob- son, Vice-President, Naomi Marsh, Secretary, and Allan Bates, Treasurer. Later on in the year it was necessary to choose an- other President, due to Ray Baker's enlistment in the U. S. Mer- chant Marine. This meeting was held Nov. 19, 1918, and Glen Davis was elected President. This year two more of our fellows, Sterling Hadaway and Bruce Gibbons, enlisted, but were mustered out shortly after the Armistice and returned home. In closing let us thank again all who have in any way helped to make our High School life so pleasant and enjoyable. , WILLIAM D.

Cliff Manor, Los Angeles, April 1, 1950. Dear Glenn :- In reply to your recent letter I am glad to hear that your latest invention was such a great success. I have noticed that they are using your automatic wick-trimmer for electric lights in Pata- gonia. As for me the world has treated me more than fairly. Since I left college I have followed a literary career. By separate mail I am sending you a copy of my latest novel, ................... As soon as my last book of verses comes from the press I will send you a copy of it. In the course of my career I have traveled extensively, visiting all the civilized world, and Lorain. You inquired about our former E. H. S. classmates. During the last five years I have met most of them in one place or another. Where do you think "Bus" Lyman is? Upon my recent visit to New York I visited Sing Sing in search of prison atmosphere. There I found Russel musical director and time keeper. On the same trip I found George Wuhrman bailing the water out of the Hudson to keep the river from rising. During a stopover in the Islands of the Pacific a year later I ran across Isabelle Robson. She is President of the International Syndicate for Wandering Suifragettes, with headquarters on Wake Island. Can you beat it? In Hawaii I encountered Mildred Corf- man acting as dancing instructor for the belles of Waikiki, who are again the rage. In China whom do you suppose I discovered? Our old friend Stearns of Berea, who has climbed from lineman to the presidency of a wireless telephone system. He receives the fabulous sum of 750,569,499 yen per year, or about S513 in American currency. In the same country Ernest Jones, M. D., is private physician to the favorite Pekenese dog of the Chinese President. Dr. Jones sprang into prominence a few years ago by amputating the salary of the "movie queen," Marjory Francis. Two years later I took the Aerial Route, of which Richard Gazely is manager, to Europe. At the Hangars I was accosted by an old man who asked to carry my luggage. Upon closely scru- tinizing his countenance I recognized the famous Yale football star, Harry Armstrong. In the course of the ensuing conversation 31 3 J PM I asked him the cause of his downfall, and he replied sorrowfully in the one word, "Woman," By further questioning I discovered that this Woman was none other than "Flossie" Starr. In London I met Kathryn Mahn and Mildred Austin compiling a volume of anecdotes on the lives of London "Bobbies" or policemen. Thru them I learned that Georgia Burt was frequenting the haunts of the old poets in a vain attempt to write poetry. They informed me that Muriel Reisinger, Naomi Marsh, and Gladys Slater Were dispensing pink tea at the cricket meets on Trafalgar Square. While passing thru the Channel Tube I recognized the con- ductor as Perry Daley. We had quite an interesting chat. When I arrived in Paris I found the city ringing with praises of the great American painter, Allan Bates, who had just finished fres- coing the bolts on Eiffel Tower. One evening While dining in the Cafe Molin I was very much shocked to iind Gladys Williams as the leading ballet dancer. I next journeyed to Cairo on the Nile and there located Pro- fessor Leo A. Martin studying the phrenology of the sphinx pre- paratory to Writing a treatise of the men of the Paleolithic Age. Professor Martin told me that he had encountered Bruce Gibbons traveling to regain his voice, Which he had lost on an extensive lecture tour. On a short trip up the Nile I met Eugene Knectges as a barker on a "rubber-neck" boat. This trip Was cut short by the urgent request of President Humphrey at Washington to attend a conference to be held in Brownhelm. I took passage from Alexandria on a submarine. Upon looking over the roster of the officers and men I discovered Herman Lovejoy listed as a deckhand. The voyage was uneventful. A Week later I arrived in Brownhelm and I Was met at the station by Walter H. Hines, the director of World Amalgamated Sympathy Orchestra. At the conference it was decided in accord- ance with the President's suggestion to eliminate English and to substitute a course in the study of the modern novel under my personal supervision. At the same time "Walt" suggested drop- ping from the curriculum mathematics in every Way, shape, and form, replacing it with a course of Classical Syncopation under his direction. This measure was unsuccessfully combated by Miss Josephine Brarnen and Miss Margaret Klein, head of the Mathe- matics Department in Grafton and La Grange seminaries. Miss Cochrane, Supervisor of English for the State of Ohio, also stren- uously objected. At the close of the conference, Walt and I motored to Elyria and were met at the station by a committee composed of Helen Holcombe, Josephine Lockard, Nellie Vogler, Ruth Reynolds, and Ruth Kahliif, Whose married names I do not knovv. This commit- tee was headed by Mayor R. Joel Baker. That evening the "Elyria Tattler," edited by Eva Mackey, devoted a large portion of the 332 P f 4 sporting page to the conference. Elyria, as you no doubt have read, has become famous as the birth place of Ted Smith, famous research engineer, the discoverer of smokeless tobacco. We visited old E. H. S. and detected two very radical changes, the piano had been tuned and the stage improved by being made smaller. I later read in the Tattler that Louise Smith and Edna Clavvson are teach- ing French to the Eskimos. Concerning the other members of the class I can secure no definite information but I will give you such information as soon as possible. As ever, Your friend, BOB SAVAGE. P. S.-I almost forgot to tell you that Louise Johnston and Harriet Sheffield are foreign secretaries for an American firm with their main ofiices in Brazil. 33 'ii I 9 E12 '11 Q D+ 'YE Q L Z G Z E ED E N N N N 34 N 1 L -, 0112155 will In the name of the benevolent Father of all:- We, the members of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Nine- teen of Elyria High School of the city of Elyria, County of Lorain, and State of Ohio, being about four years of age and of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this our last will and testament, hereby revoking and annulling any and all will or wills by us made heretofore: First:-To the class of 1920 and their heirs and assigns for- ever we leave our desks in 3L and our ability to study, with the hope that both will be used diligently, to Norman Abbe we leave Allan Bate's failing for letter writing in the hope that he may find plenty of time to pursue this arty to Slim Byam we leave Bob Savage's fondness for Basketball and late hours.

L E X i SENIOR HB' Sfvninr IE Gllaaa The first large mid-year class of sixty Freshmen was enrolled in Elyria High School in Janrary of the year nineteen hundred and sixteen. We were of the same color as other Freshmen, but we determined to change that color by becoming Sophomores the next year. During the Sophomore year we were enrolled in 2W with Miss Ebert as teacher the first half, and Mr. Koppes, the second half of the semester. As time Went on We entered the Junior year with our enrollment at 4W. Hoyv many were left? Perhaps not sixty as had entered in the Freshman year, but 'the number had not fallen below the forty mark. Our social life began when We helped entertain the Seniors at the J unior-Senior reception. Dur- ing this year patriotism Was shown by both the girls and boys: the girls entering the Patriotic League and many of the boys enlisting. We made our first entrance into the Lincoln Building as J un- ior A's enrolled in lL. With Miss Lewis as teacher We continued our Work and about twenty-five received their compensation by becoming Senior B's in February, 1919. We have not been organized as a separate class as yet, but hope to do so in the near future. Many of our members are con- nected with the orchestra and Glee Club. On the Elyrian Staff are Myrtle Miller, Dorothy Wilcox, and Wayne Koppes. The Friendship and Hi-Y Clubs have many of our members among their Workers, While much interest has been shown by the class in the French League. As We will be the first class to graduate at the mid-year We have much anticipation as to what is to be done. DOROTHY WILCOX. MYRTLE MILLER. I T1 L... mi..

Driven back, however, by the giggles and sarcastic words of those superior beings who had left their freshmen days behind, We retreated to the Technical building, where we were duly welcomed. Freshmen days passed swiftly by and at the beginning of our sophomore year we were enrolled in the Lincoln building. Here we occupied the second floor, under the guardianship of Mr. Ebert, Miss Allen, Miss Gebert, and Miss McElroy. At the roll call only Iifty-five boys and sixty-two girls remained of our original number. Whether this decrease was due to illness, love, Algebra or Latin, we do not know, but we strongly suspect the last. By this time we were already familiar with the organizations of the school. Seven of our members played in the orchestra and six of our girls sang in the Glee Club, while twenty-six of us claimed membership in the English Club. Nearly all of us be- longed to the Hi-Y or Friendship Club. Our sophomore year gave us a more thoro idea of what was yet to come. Plane geometry foretold numberless horrors of Solid geometry, while Caesar called forth terrors of Cicero and Virgil, but we gritted our teeth and hung on. Ninety-two of us survived and passed into the Junior Class. "The time has comef' the teacher said, "to talk of many things, of receptions and Junior A's, and everything." On the night of March 14, the Seniors entertained us royally and we are planning to return the compliment, April 25. All those who wished to be in the Junior play were given a "try out" by several Judges. Those chosen from the Junior A's are: Ruth Carpenter, Alfred Brouse, Sherwood Byman, LeRoy Reisinger, Kenneth Ko- linski, Corless Dwire, William Weldon, Lorene Marsh, and Mar- garet Miller. Since Myrtle Miller, our former secretary, was promoted to the Senior class, Charles Snoble was elected to take her position. With this exception no other changes have been made in class oflicers. Our membership in the English Club is great altho our at- 40 tendance at the semi-monthly meetings has decreased. One or two of our girls have abandoned the Glee Club, but the orchestra members are as faithful as ever. We are, at this time, in the midst of a great crisis caused by Solid geometry, and as we wish our graduating class to be large, we hope that the death rate will be less than expected. FLORENCE PRIHODA. Iluninr 0115155 A class of forty-nine energetic little Freshmen was admitted to Elyria High School in January, 1917. Tho Freshies, we all had one great desire-to become Seniors, and we went to work with zest, regardless of the sneering remarks about our "Greenness." We were very busy that first year and in what seemed a very short time we were sitting in 2W, no longer called "Freshies," but "Sophies." We then took it upon ourselves to help make the new "Freshies" feel at home. As the year progressed some of the mem- bers of the class distinguished themselves in swimming, football, and basketball, and Harry Lawrance represented us on the "Elyr- ian" Staff, having charge of the faculty news. We had a 1007 membership in the Patriotic League and when the French League was organized the Sophomores elected Lorene Marsh as their presi- dent, Doris Todd, Vice-President, Edith Hoard, Secretary, and Margaret Miller, Treasurer. Of the class of sixty-three Sophomores, only fifty-three suc- ceeded in becoming Juniors in February, 1919. The majority of us were seated in 1L, under Miss Lewis's care, while the rest were put in 23L with Miss McElroy as room teacher. The first class meeting was held March 5, 1919, in 3L, and John Smith from our class, was elected assistant Treasurer. Members of the class represent us in the English Club, and Gladys McCullough is a member of the orchestra. Edwin Push- bach, Jack Hay, Orlando Hurst and Henry Kofske were members of the Junior Class Basketball team. The Juniors won in the an- nual scrap with the Seniors, running up a score of thirty-four to seventeen. On March 14, 1919, the Seniors entertained the Juniors at a Reception held in the Tech. Building. The play, "A Case of Sus- pension," proved a great success and was greatly enjoyed. The Junior-Senior Reception was given April twenty-fifth. One of Moliere's plays, "The Doctor in Spite of Himself," in two acts, was presented, with Margaret Miller taking the part of Lucinde and Lorene Marsh that of Jacqueline, her nurse. While we have taken part in many of the school activities, we have not neglected our studies and next term we hope to all meet again as Junior "A's." LORENE MARSH. 11 ..,.,,,..,, ui,-. fl .

In September, 1917, a scrambling crowd of excited Fresh- men entered the great doors of the Technical Building. We were enrolled in various rooms, as there were so many of us that it was impossible to crowd everyone into one room. 1T, 2T, 6T, and 23T held the majority, while 34T had a few. We were, as is natural, envious of our superior classes, the Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. Ofttimes a "Freshie" accident- ally stepped into the wrong room for recitation, but that mistake along with our feelings toward the upper classmen soon disap- peared. Now that we are Sophomores our class has decreased, but we still have a fair-sized class of one hundred and three members. We occupy three rooms now. 20L is under the leadership of Mr. Ebert, 25L under Miss Gebert, and 4L under Mr. W. L. Vaughn. Several of us are musically inclined. Phyllis Wilcox, Jeanette Corning, and Ruth Schneider are enrolled in the Glee Club. Mil- dred Fauver and Doris Todd are in the orchestra. We also have a splendid representation in the English Club, the membership numbering twenty-five. We are represented on the "Elyrian" staff by Myrtle Kauf. Another thing worthy of mention is the fact that the majority of the girls of our class joined the Y. W. C. A. and attend Friend- ship Club meetings regularly. The secretary of the Club is Ruth Schneider, a member of our class. Fifteen Sophomore A boys belong to the Hi-Y Club. There are three honor students: Linda Blanchard, Carrie Henson, and Myrtle Kauf. We now pass on from the dullness and pain of Plane Geom- etry and Caesar to Solid Geometry and Cicero. RUTH SCHNEIDER, '21, -14 Snphnmnrr Wu. Principal Vaughn once remarked, "I expect great things of this Class." Why shouldn't he? The forty-eight "Freshies" un- der the January, 1918, classification are trying to show him that great things will come of our class. At first, 23T seemed so big! We were almost afraid to turn around, because we might do some- thing unusual. However, with Miss Klopfenstein to help us, we soon became accustomed to High School life. Before many months had passed, we became Freshmen A's. New fields were opened to us. The English Club and various ath- letics were within our reach and comprehension. Four boys and seven girls were qualified for the English Club. You saw the work of the Freshman basketball team. Don't the Sophomores remember how hard they had to work to win the first game? Annual moving took place in January, 1919, from "Tech" over to "ZW," with Miss Eleanor Hurst as our room teacher. We were happy because no longer were we classed with the freshmen. Our class was somewhat increased in numbers, sixty-two now be- ing known as Sophomore B's. We have three honor students, Daniel Jones, Margaret Brownell, and Noah Hayes. This semester there are five boys and eight girls in the English Club while three girls are in the Glee Club. Nearly every girl is enrolled in the French League and also in the Friend- ship Club. Hi-Y is attended by some of the boys. One of our ablest classmates, Frank Stevens, is on the Elyrian Staff as the Guardian of the "Exchange" The Friendship Club Cabinet is represented by Virginia Crandall and Elizabeth Wilford. The class has representatives in every activity. Some of the students find that it is not difficult to have a good time, while oth- ers devotetheir time to studying. Unfortunately, we have left a few of our' class over in the "Tech" building. But we hope to graduate the biggest and best mid-year class of Elyria High School.

They found their names on the doors of their particular report rooms. 1T was in charge of Miss Klopfensteing 2T, Mr. Conrad, 24T, Miss Edwards, 34T, Miss Billsg and 36T, Miss Parmelee. At last they "locked-stepped" into the auditorium, where their "numbers" as well as their names were taken and each sentenced to his or her schedule. As the days rolled by, they worried their way thru Miss Bills' and Miss Klopfenstein's Algebra classesg the 63 Latin pupils dug into that classic tongue altho their labor was lightened by the in- terest and fascination of Miss Parmelee's instruction g some of her pupils as they dug into Latin shouted "veni, vidi, vici." English had its annoyances and delights for the Misses Hurst and Edwards insisted upon themes and collateral readings as well as the regu- lar daily grind. When Mrs. Fay at the end of the first semester resigned her position as Science teacher, her duties were taken up by Miss Bertha Bails. The forge classes had Mr. Frank Ward for a time but ill health compelled him to give up his task. Miss Coby in Cooking, Mr. Fox and Mr. Bowdler in Manual Training classes, Miss Schneurer and Miss Chamberlain in Drawing, Crafts, and Sewing classes-all these have helped to steady those riotous rookie nerves so common in September. This class had an unusual four weeks' vacation in the fall, because of the Flu epidemic. Evidently there were few vocal students in this class because Harriott Francis is the only representative of the class in the Girls' Glee Club, but four pupils went into the orchestra. The 29 girls of this class who belong to the Friendship Club seem to have much enjoyment when "the" Friday' evening for their meet- ing arrives. They all assemble at the Y. W. gym and have supper, games, dancing, and classes. 49 rm, 4 Eighteen of our boys enrolled in the Hi-Y Club. Walter Smith is the Secretary and Treasurer of the club, while Ralph Obitts is a member of the banquet committee. Thirty-six of the class achieved, because of their grades, mem- bership in the English Club. The "rookies" are proud of that as well as of the pupils who secured grades of over 90 in everything during the first semester. If they persevere, these twelve, who can tell what other honors will be theirs? The class is pleased to publish their names: Kenneth Barber, Albert Champney, Louise Crayford, Harriott Francis, Albert Gotsch, Harold Haugh, Ber- nice Haven, Ralph Obitts, Walter Smith, Frances Snyder, Herbert Struthers, and Winifred Kirby. One member of the class, Char- lotte Webster, was elected to act as one of the .Literary Editors on the Elyrian staff. CHARLOTTE WEBSTER, '22, "Uhr ihiatnrg nf the Elirvahmarn Ollana i-'vinre 1552 Entvrrh in Eliehruargn 'Twas the second week in February when we entered the sacred walls of a High building which we knew very little about, but which held our serious hopes. Six and forty strong we landed, some from Gates, some from Franklin, but feeling, as the door opened before us, an important part of E. H. S. Being a new addition to the High school made us conspicuous and subject to ridicule. We were supposed to be unsuspecting, unthinking Freshmen who were not supposed to know much or to be able to think accurately for ourselves. Even after Mr. Vaughn had explained to us the floor plan of Elyria High School it still seemed like the labyrinths we read about and some of us got mixed up and missed classes. For in- stance here is a little incident to illustrate the point. Some of the students were supposed to go to science in the Washington building. Upon arriving there they found the door locked. After waiting for some time they discovered, in the hall- way, a teacher who informed them in a very nice, gentle way that they were supposed to go to a study room. In great chagrin at getting mixed up and, most of all, in being found out by a "teacher," they marched back to the right place. This goes to show in what a whirl we were that first day. Later we became interested in some of the school activities, one of which was the Hi-Y Club. It held an interest for the boys because they always had a substantial, tho not elaborate, meal and good speakers-some from the schools, some from the war or elsewhere. The last one was enjoyed especially because we had an orchestra, an extra fine supper and a very good speaker by the name of Professor Stetson, a teacher of Oberlin College. 50 One of the social activities which held an interest for the girls was the Friendship Club, an organization much along the same lines as the Hi-Y and which was as highly favored and at- tended by the girls as was the Hi-Y Club by the boys. Some of us who played musical instruments entered the H. S. orchestra, another organization well worth mentioning here or elsewhere because of its fine musical ability and also because of its leader who puts the snap into the snappy music and who brings out the best that's in his pupils. When the orchestra plays you can't go to sleep because there is nothing like dead music in that crowd. The Freshmen like the high school so well that they wouldn't be back in the grades for anything, because there is always some- thing doing which makes you feel as tho you were having the time of your life. Nineteen twenty-three seems a long way off, but we will get there and lead in the activities the same as you are doing now, Mr. Senior. EUGENE SMITH, '23, ol 1 -R 59 4.:: QMILDRED CORFMAN.

It will be impossible to meet here," replied the girl addressed as Ruth. The two were seated on the grass in a beautiful woods, busily sorting wild flowers, on a beautiful day in August, 1880. Claire Blake, a tall dark-haired girl of perhaps sixteen or seventeen years of age, was living with her grandparents and mother, her father having died when she was small. Ruth Lane was a beauti- ful girl, about the same age as her companion, but with light hair and blue eyes. Her mother had died a few years before and she was living with her father and his parents. They lived nearly side by side, between them only a small house which was known as the "Unowned House," since the owner never claimed it. It was quickly decaying owing to neglect. "I wonder why we are forbiddedn to speak to each other," resumed Claire. "Whenever I question mother, she tells me to wait until I'm older." "Yes," continued Ruth, "I think it is odd." "Ruth, do you know I have the queerest feeling? It seems as if something will soon happen to change our whole lives. Last night I dreamt we were sisters. Isn't it odd ?" said Claire. "I, too, have felt that way-but let's not think of that. We had better try to decide where to meet during the winter. Soon the leaves will fall and the forest will not be beautiful any more," finished Ruth. Both girls became very thoughtful. Suddenly Ruth exclaimed, "Why not in the 'Unowned House'? No one ever enters there-but how can we get in? We have no key." 5 3 ...J "Oh, Ruth! one of the windows is broken, and we could un- lock it easily. Come, let's try," from Claire. Both girls rose from the ground and left. It did not take long to get to the house as it bordered on the edge of the woods. Mak- ing their way thru what had once been a garden, they paused under the window. Ruth cautiously put her hand thru and un- locked it. Then, pushing it up, both girls clambered thru. They cast curious glances about the room, in which they stood. It was not an empty house as they had thought. The furniture, once beautiful, was now claimed by dampness and mould. "Oh!" said Claire, "what a beautiful roomthis must have been once. Let's go and see the rest of the house.", On examination of the lower iioor, it proved to be beautifully furnished, but in the same condition as the first one. Then going up the stairs to the second floor, they found themselves in a beau- tiful bedroom. "This room looks as if it were furnished for a bride," ex- claimed Claire. ' "It certainly does," said Ruth, "but come and we will look at the rest of the rooms. Then if we want to, we can come back to this one." Proceeding to the others, the girls found them to be all bed- rooms, not as nicely furnished as the first one, however. Then making their way back to the first one, they started to make an examination of it. Finally Ruth found a large oak chest. "Oh, Claire!" she exclaimed, "I do believe this is a bride's room. Just look at this little piece of veil sticking out of the cor- ner. Come and help me lift the cover." Both tried but did not succeed. It was locked. It was a great disappointment to them, but they were. not discouraged. Think- ing the key might be in the room, they searched thoroly. It re- vealed no key. However, it was time for them to go home. As they went out of the window, Ruth said, "Do not go to the woods tomorrow, but come here instead." Then she added as they said good-bye, "Can't you get some keys? I will bring Father's bunch. Perhaps one of them will open the chest." The next day at their annual meeting time, the girls entered the house and went upstairs. Both had numerous keys. Getting on their knees beside the trunk, they tried them. Presently Claire cried, "Oh, Ruth! I do believe this is the right one. There it is unlocked. Isn't it curious that one of mother's keys opened it?" Quickly lifting the lid, they found it was packed with clothes. It contained a complete outfit for a bride. Carefully lifting them out they came to the bottom of the chest. There lay a letter! They got no further for it was time to go home. 54 "Ruth," said Claire, "can't we come back tonight? I can't wait until tomorrow to read that letter. If it is very dark, we can light that lamp I saw upstairs." "That is a good idea, Claire," answered Ruth. "I will come then. I hope that letter will solve the mystery." Several hours later Ruth and Claire were lighting the lamp which they had noticed before. Quickly taking the letter from the chest, they tried to read it. It was difficult work because the ink had faded. However, they grasped the meaning of it, at last. It did not throw much light on the mystery, but instead, deepened it. It merely stated that John Lane had been killed in battle, and was signed by an army physician. It was addressed to Mrs. Blake, Claire's mother. John Lane was Ruth's father. Before they could guess as to the meaning, they were inter- rupted. Someone was coming up the steps. Glancing at the door they saw a man enter. It was Ruth's father. Glancing at Ruth, he was about to make a stern command, when he was interrupted. A woman entered. It was Mrs. Blake, Claire's mother. Before she could say anything she saw Mr. Lane and became confused. A short silence followed, then the girls explained how they came to be there. Then Ruth finished, "We found that letter addressed to you, telling of the death of John Lane. I hope it was not wrong of us to read it." Mr. Lane glanced quickly at Mrs. Blake and said, "The announcement of my death." - "Yes," replied Mrs. Blake, "a short time after you had been in the army, I received that letter." The girls looked curiously at their parents, then Ruth said, "Father, tell us what this all means." "Very well," replied Mr. Lane, "I will. Long ago Claire's mother and I were to be married. The day our marriage was to have taken place, I was called by my country. Not having time for anything, we planned to be married when I returned. She prom- ised to wait. During the battle I was wounded, and did not re- cover for a long time. This little house was built and furnished to be our home. When I came back, she was married. That was a great shock to me. Soon after I, too, married." Then turning to Claire's mother he said, "Will you please tell us your side of the story ?" Claire's mother then continued, "After you had gone I re- ceived several letters from you. Then I received this one. Think- ing the report true, I felt so bad, I left town. Before leaving, I brought all my clothes and that letter over here, and locked them in the chest." Here Claire interrupted by saying, "So that is how one of your keys opened the chest." 55 KM ,, , I V l giAAe.A Mrs. Blake then went on, "It was while I was away. I met and married Mr. Blake. It was after I returned here, that I learned the report was false. When passing you on the street one day, you did not speak. That hurt my pride and I decided that you must be the first to speak." At the end of her story, Mrs. Blake turned to Ruth and said, "Never again will I refuse to let Claire speak to you." Then said Mr. Lane, "I understand now. I should have spoken to you on the street that day. However, neither of us is very old." There followed a beautiful little scene, and the girls slipped quietly out of the room. Once outside, impulsive Ruth exclaimed, "Oh, Claire! We will really be sisters now." "Yes," added Claire, "and no more secret meetings." HERMA STOLZENBURG, '21, As I was strolling thru the woods, Upon a bright spring day, I met a crawling, twisting snake, And it to me did say: "Oh, thou descendant of Adam and Eve, Were it not for the human race, I wouldn't be crawling along the ground With the black dust in my face." To it I said, "'Tis your own fault. You tempted Adam and Eve. So bear your burden willingly And o'er your fate don't grieve." GERALDINE WHITNEY, '19. "A Bag 5111 the Eine Gbffinf' "Next, please."

An flmfl illvttvr Anil llmaginaiintw ' One day as I was sitting on the sofa in our library reading a book, my hand, as I idly ran it down between the back and bottom of the sofa, ran across something that rustled. I pulled it out and found it to be a letter. It was in poor hand-writing, as if it had been hastily written. Opening it I read: Dear Frederick: Mother is forcing me to marry Mr. Van Worst from Boston tonight. You know how I despise him. If you love me meet me this afternoon at "The Haven" at five o'clock. The wedding is set for seven. I am sure I can manage to slip out by the-1 At this place the letter stopped. I wondered what she was going to say next. I sat there and wove a network of dreams about that letter. It was turning yellow so I decided that it must have been written some time around the Civil War. I wondered what the name of the writer could have been. She was probably about seventeen years old. Then more questions came to my mind. How did the letter get into the sofa? How did the affair end? Was she married to the man she hated? This was without doubt a romance, and maybe a tragedy. Then my wild imaginations car- ried me on and on. This sofa as I knew was old. One of our fam- ily had probably bought it from her family. But how did the let- ter get in the sofa? What caused her to put it there? Maybe while writing it she was interrupted by her mother-that wicked mother she spoke of in her letter! But, then, why would she not have finished the letter? The mother said that the brother of the man who was to marry her daughter was to be married on the same day in Boston and had asked that they might have a double wedding. Therefore they must take the next train which would start for Boston at 4:45 or some time before five o'clock. This would enable them to arrive in time and would also break up the girl's plan. That was it! Her mother stayed with her and helped her dress for the journey. The girl had no time to finish or send the letter. Then I saw the train. I saw seven o'clock approach- ing. I saw the despairing bride decked in her rich gown. I saw the marriage ceremony and finally the proud and exulting bride- groom place the ring upon her finger. Now she was his. Oh, cruel fate! What would her lover back home do? He would probably commit suicide or die slowly of a broken heart. 58 I was awakened from such wild musings by the ringing of the dinner-bell. I knew my married sister Anna was expected for dinner, and surely she would be there then. I just had to show that letter to some one so I ran out of the library and found my sister. I showed it to her and she examined it carefully. Then I told her my story which I had woven about it and asked her if she didn't think it might be true. Suddenly she broke into peal upon peal of laughter. I was offended at first, because why should she laugh at my imagination? I asked her what was so funny. Still laughing she told me that she herself was the writer of that letter. She had written it when she was a little girl playing lovers and kidnapping with a playmate. GERALDINE WHITNEY, '19. An 09121 Iliahlv In a grassy field one bright summer's day A grasshopper hopped on his merry way. An ant passed by bearing grains of wheat Storing food in winter to eat. "Come, chat with me," the grasshopper said. f'I can't," spoke the ant, shaking his head, "For winter is coming and I must prepare For fields all brown and trees all bare? And the ant went on with his difiicult deed While the grasshopper played not knowing his need 'Til the fields were brown and the trees were bare And winter brought snow and cool, clear air. Then the grasshopper thought of the days gone by, Of the grassy fields and the warm bright sky, Of the ant as he toiled with his difficult deed. "fTis best to prepare," he said, "for need." LOUISE JOHNSTON. 59 Ellie iqiatnrg nf the Hiulin We were not, of course, the only musical women in town. We just happened to all be intimately acquainted and musical, too. So we formed an amiable little "clique," and called it "The Woman's Quartet." Most enjoyable were the hours we spent together, play- ing or story-telling, as the mood took us. We met every Wednesday afternoon at the home of one of the four, the time being, as it happened, Janet Delain's afternoon. When we met in the sunshiny parlor of Janet's beautiful little home, we all felt lively and in a mood to play. We had not played long, however, when it began to grow dark and in a few minutes there were soft little patters of rain striking against the windows. It looked as tho it would rain hard and for some time, and our mood suddenly dampened with the atmosphere. But our spirits were still gay, and Dora Patterson suggested a story. Nellie Streeter was the only unmarried woman in the Quar- tet, and as she had plenty of time and money she traveled to some extent, saying she "preferred to roam the world to settling down in any particular spot to make a home." She had been in New York the whole of the previous winter and she now oiered to fulfill her promise of relating some of her experiences while there. So Mrs. Delain started a cheery little blaze in the fire-place and, Indian fashion, we sat in a half circle about it, on the floor, and Nell began her story. "While I was in New York-l guess I had not been there more than a week-I discovered the quaintest old Violin shop, with the oddest old proprietor." "Just like you, Nell," said Emily Jones. "You're always find- ing something quaint or out-of-the-way, so just go ahead, we won't ask you how you did it." "Thanks," said Nell, "I'll proceed. The first time I went there it fascinated me, and to open some sort of conversation, for I hated to leave, I asked the old man if his books were for sale. I could see I had made an awful blunder the minute I said it, but it was out, so I waited for the apparently approaching storm. The old man was seated behind a counter that ran nearly the whole length of one side of the room, and I had not had a good oppor- tunity to see him very well, as he remained bent over after giving me some slight purchase. "Now he stood up and I was surprised to see that he was rather tall and very straight for an old man, with a dignified and at pres- ent resentful aspect. His eyes were a very deep blue-gray, and his beard was a beautiful white with a silvery sheen like his hair, 60 which was still thick and rather wavy. Altogether he so com- manded my respect that I was terribly sorry to have offended him. Now as he stood and looked at me his deep eyes seemed to pierce my very soul, and I almost began to shake. H 'I see you did not mean it,' he said, as if reading my inmcst thoughts. His voice was surpisingly mellow and pleasant. "'But let me warn you,' he continued, 'my books are my pride, and I cannot help a feeling of resentment toward any one who speaks lightly of themf "Of course, I begged his forgiveness, and almost before I knew what I was saying, I said right out that his little shop and himself attracted me strongly and I hated to leave. There seemed to be a kindred spirit between us. I do not understand it, but we seemed to be drawn toward each other, and at the end of a half hour he was showing me the books he had in a bookcase that occu- pied all of one end of the little shop. They were the kind of books I loved, some of them I had read, but many were odd volumes that I had never seen nor heard of. I have no idea where he picked them all up, but I know he has traveled a great deal, much more than I ever have. "It is needless to say that I snatched at his oEer to 'come and read any time I had the leisure,' when you know my weakness in that direction. I went there very often and we became fast friends. I discovered that a good many of his books were about the violin, and I also discovered that it was seldom anyone came there. At first I choked my curiosity and enjoyed the quiet spot to read in, but curiosity in a woman cannot be throttled, and so I found out that he did not have to keep the shop. He made violins for pleasure, did a little trade for a few friends, and as far as the shop was concerned it was just a whim. I also learned that he lived there, and that explained the couch, a comfortable chair, and table with a thriving plant on it, and the peculiar home-and-shop- combined aspect of the quaint dear little room. "There was much in his book-case that interested me, but most of all I enjoyed reading about the violin family. He had many books on the subject, and as well as I like violin music, I had never before taken the time to look up the history of the instru- ment. I can't possibly tell you all I read about it, but I'll tell you as well as I can, briefly, what I got out of it as a whole. "To begin with," went on Nellie, "I will give you its genealogy. The violin is a direct descendant of the Viol, the Viol and Kit on one side are descended from the Gigue, and on the other from the Rebec, the Gigue and Rebe-" "Oh, wait a minute!" exclaimed Emily. "I'm all mixed up. How can you remember '?" "Well, give me a piece of paper and I'll show youg there, is that plainer?" asked Nell. G1 GENEALOGY OF THE VIOLIN. Ravanastron I Kemangeh Rebab Rubebe , I Glglle Rebec I I Viol Kit Viol .I . V1Ol1H "Why, it's plain enough," said Dora. "But of course we don't understand it. Explain it to us." "All right. The Ravanastron is said to have been invented five thousand years ago by a king of Ceylon, named Ravana. However, this may not be true, for there are names for the bow, which originated in Hindustan, which cannot be less than fifteen hundred to two thousand years old, and the simplest form of the Ravanstron, of which there are some varieties in the present day, is almost an exact counterpart of the Chinese fiddle, called the Ur-heen. The Ravanastron in its most simple form is a cylinder of sycamore wood hollowed out from one end to the other. It has a neck or handle, one end of which passes completely thru the cylinder. From pegs at the upper extremity of the neck, across one end of the cylinder and fastened to the protruding end of the neck, are stretched two strings. "Coming westward, the ancient and modern Turkish and Arabian Kemangeh a"gouz is almost identical with an ancient Indian instrument, the Omerti, which is very much like the Rava- nastron. Kemangeh is derived from the Persian word kemangeh, which means, 'place of the bow,' and 'a'gouz' means 'ancientj making the whole translation really, 'ancient bow-instrument' You will see on the genealogy I made for you, that along with the Kemangeh is the Rebab, another ancient and modern Turkish and Arabian instrument. There are many varieties of this, and one 62 of them-I do not remember the peculiar name-is merely a four- sided frame with two pieces of stretched skin composing the top and bottom. "There are many names for the Rebab, the Rubebe and Reber: being examples. In Spain the Rebab is said to have existed for centuries, and it still exists among the peasants, being handed down from father to son. They are considered to be very ancient, are extremely scarce, and almost impossible to obtain. These Spanish Rebabs or Rubebes are almost exactly like the Rebab of North Africa." "I don't see how they jumped clear from Ceylon to Spain," interrupted Emily. e "Wait until I finish telling about these, and I'll explain that, too. From the Rubebe you notice we have the Gigue and Rebec, These immediately antecede the Kit and Viols and closely resem- ble the first Viols which were pear-shaped. The Viols are found mostly from MSS., and in the representation I saw they were very similar thru the ninth, tenth, and eleventh centuries. From a bas-relief on St. Georges de Boscherville in Rouen, there was shown a figure holding a Gigue or Rebec, of the eleventh century, held in the same position as the modern violins. On the same bas- relief is a figure holding a Viol in the same position as the modern Violoncello, and showing the beginning of inward curvatures in the sides. In the eleventh century the fiddle seems to have been divided into two classes-one was the Viol proper, and the other was the Gigue or Rebec, which held to the simple pear-shape. The sound-holes in these instruments are in the shape of two C's, facing each other. The last relic of the pear-shaped form of fiddle was the Sordino, or French ' Pochettef This shape held until the eighteenth century when it was abandoned. From this time they seem to have given way to the Kit, which was of the ordinary violin shape. They were used mostly by dancing masters, and it is from them that we get our word 'jig' from 'Giguef "Now we come to the Viol as the immediate forerunner, and even the early companion of the Violin as it exists today. These Viols all had five or six strings at least and frets to stop the notes with. They were played upon the knee. "A Viol maker, Casparo da Salo, was also a maker of Violins and Violas, and his instruments are found from about 1555. "Now I will tell you it 'jumped' into Europe, Emily," went on Nell, as she finished giving us its Genealogy. "About the seventh century the Rebab was, without doubt, in use among the Moors. As they came along westward across the north of Africa and conquered Spain in the eighth century, that accounts for its presence along their path from that time up to now. With the Moors and Mohammedans it was spread westward into Spain and Southwestern Europe. From there it proceeded , G 3 l m 1 northwest to the British Isles with their colonization from Spain." "Whew!" exclaimed Janet. "I knew the fiddle was very an- cient, for somewhere I read about its being used by the ancient Hebrews." "Well, you read a mistake," said Nell. "For the word 'Viol' occurs much more frequently in old translations of the Bible than in the accepted modern versions, and in all the instances where it is used, the Hebrew word translated is equivalent to both the Greek and Latin for Harp." "Do you mean to say," put in Emily again, "that all those people in western Europe and Africa had no bow instrument until the Moors came along and gave them theirs ?" "No," said Nell, "they had an instrument, played upon by means of a plectrum of some sort, which in an improved form exists today as the Welsh Crwth. It is descended from the primi- tive lyre, which was in use among the ancient Hebrews and Egyp- tians. It is at its best an unsatisfactory instrument, and as the Moors came with their convenient bow-instruments they drove the Crwth to take refuge among the earlier inhabitants of the North- west." "Did those early instruments have bows ?" I asked. "Yes, nearly all of the pictures in MSS. and representatives of bas-reliefs picture some sort of a bow, with the fiddle. I cannot go into detail with the bow, as it developed from the simplest form like the fiddle, but of course you know that hair was not always used on the bow. I read that Paginini was reported to have played divinely upon his violin with a slender rush in a contest which he had with a vain young man in Italy. You can find pict- ures of ancient bows showing their progress better than I can tell you of it. "It has almost stopped raining," she went on. "But before I end my story I must tell you a little more of the old man. As dear to him as his books were-you remember he called them his pride-he had an old violin that he valued beyond comparison to them. It was an 'Alard' Amati, and was very beautiful. It was from Nicholas Amati's medium-size model, and was varnished a maroon resembling, as I have somewhere read, a liquefied ruby. When I heard him play it I could not help but think of the quota- tion, 'I lived in the woods, until I was cut down by the relentless axe. Whilst I lived I was silent, but in death my melody is ex- quisite.' "The old man was very much downcast when I told him I must leave, and he made me promise to come back, and I will go as often as the opportunity presents, and as long as my 'adopted father' lives. He really adopted me first by calling me 'daughterf He also made me promise that 'when he departed on his long jour- ney' I would carefully preserve his precious Amati. And indeed G4 . I will, tho I hope it may not leave his master's hands and touch for a long, long time to come." "Oh, did he play for you often ?" breathed Dora. "Yes, he played often and most wonderfully. He would not play in public nor for many persons besides myself. I never knew the reason, but from snatches that he told me, I knew that he had had an eventful life which had made him what some people would call 'eccentricf When I had to leave he said, " 'My daughter, I cannot say farewell, but I will play you a good-bye and Godspeed till you come back again' And without another word he played such a good-bye as I never before heard. The tone of his violin was fresh and pure and mellow and the old man had known to their deepest depths the most exquisite joy and profound sorrow." ELDA KNAPP, '19. AN ODE TO THE NEIGHBOR'S CAT. The cat stood on the slippery roof While I stood on the ground. This cat had woke me from my sleep, With an unearthly sound. He screeched, he squawled, he yowled, he bawled, While I so helpless lay, Until I to my memory called The shoes Ifd bought that day. I, from my bed so quietly stole, And found the shoes with ease, So with one firmly in my hand I resolved to make him sneeze. I tiptoed softly 'cross the room, Watching him thru the window, And all the while this poor old cat Kept up with marked crescendo. I braced my feet, I took good aim, I let my new shoe fly, Just then the cat bowed gracefully, And my shoe then went by. I heard it splash amid the din, I knew where it had landed. The rain-barrel stood beside the house, In this my shoe was stranded. 65 1 ran downstairs to save my shoe, The wind blew thru my hair. I stubbed my toe unmercifully Upon a neutral chair. I rushed outside into the rain, I staggered, slipped and fell. I looked up at that blamed old cat Which had never ceased to yell. I got my shoe, 'twas where I thought, Went slowly back to bed, And I wished heartily all the night, That that old cat was dead. WALTER W. HINES, '19. "GETTING EVEN."

I shall oier a prize for the one who can tell the best story. Peggy may begin, then Dorothy and then Marion, and so on. Peggy-I'll begin by telling you a real true one. About fifty years ago, most people were very supersti- tious. If there happened to be a haunted house in the neigh- borhood no one would live in it. One time some people who didn't like to be considered superstitious moved into the house. The first night they were there, they sat up late, waiting for the ghost to appearg but it didn't come, so they went to bed. About three o'clock in the morning the whole household was awakened by a loud tap, tap., tap,-somewhere outside the house. They were dis- turbed and began to believe that there really might be some- thing in ghosts. The next night at about the same time the same thing occurred again. This time the family was determined to find the ghost, but they waited in vain. After this tapping had 67 happened every night for about a week, the man of the house- hold got up and went in search of the so-called ghost. Day was just breaking when he went outside. H ere he could hear the tap, tap, tap, more plainly than ever, and his eyes followed in the direction from which the sound came. To his great aston- ishment he saw a woodpecker perched upon the roof, pound- ing with all his might. Mary-How perfectly ridiculous! That just proves that people shouldn't be frightened at every sound they hear. QGWZS appla-ud.D Dorothy-That's a good story. The shivers crept up my back while you were telling it. I suppose that it is my turn next. Once upon a time a young boy was traveling thru the country. Night with a heavy rain and thunder came upon him, forcing him to seek shelter. He saw, not far off, an old cabin-probably similar to this-ipoints arouml roomy- and he hastened his horse toward the shelter. As he ap- proached he saw that the door was closed, while upon enter- ing, he was much amazed to find that the house was not occu- pied. After drying his clothes he climbed the loft and made a bed in one corner on a pile of hay. Altho the wind came thru the cracks, he soon went to sleep. About two o'clock he was half awakened by a low moaning sound, then two piercing cries. He raised himself on his elbow to'look around, but was immediately thrown backward by a heavy blow on his head. As he sank into unconsciousness he seemed to see a white figure glide past him and then vanish with a mournful wail. Mary-Well, whose ghost was it? Does the story end here? Betty-Was it in this house that the story took place? Dorothy Qcontinuiug storyj-When the boy awoke the next morn- ing, he thought over this night's experience. As he was a boy who never believed in ghosts in the day time he solved the mystery in this manner: the moaning cries were the owls and doves in the nearby forest, the noise below had been caused by the slamming of the door, his blow was caused by a piece of the beam from the roof overhead which had fallen and struck him. Thus the mystery is solved, after I say that the phantom which he saw was the lightning flash as it passed thru the cracks in the logs. QGWZS applaudj Girls-That was a fine one. Miss M.-Pass the sandwiches, please! You girls down there are getting more than your share. Betty-You're next with a story, Marion.

I heard them cry, "Go to the 'Y.' " So to the "Y" I went. Such a crowd you should have seen! There was hardly room to stand. Girls here, girls there, girls everywhere. This sure was "no man's land." First we danced, and then we sang, Then came the best part-Eats. The many games were far from tame, And the classes couldn't be beat. 70 There is another side to this Friendship Club. Tho we do not call it work, Each does her part to gladden some heart, And no one wishes to shirk. Let me tell you, my dear Freshman pals, I'm very glad I came. Needless to say, I'll not stay away, And advise you to do the same. MARGUERITE SCHUUR, '20, MORGAN'S REVENGE. Frank Morgan was thinking. He was thinking of the days when he was an unsophisticated country lad, trying to make his way in the city. Thinking bitterly of the only time he had ever been in prison. It was the one stain on his life, that is, he thought it was a stain, altho he was innocent. He had been walking along behind two rich-looking young fellows, who, While fooling with each other, had broken a large plate glass window in a store. A crowd had quickly collected, and a know-it-all policeman had seized upon poor Frank as the offender. "That's the one, I saw him do it." It was the real culprit who spoke and, because he was nicely dressed the policeman believed him. Young Morgan had languished in jail for nearly a week be- fore he was finally released because of insuflicient evidence. This had all happened years ago, but Morgan was still bitter about it, and was resolved that if he should ever meet that fellow, he would make him pay for it. "Your car is ready, sir," repeated his valet for the third time. The man came back to earth with a start, and was soon speed- ing toward the club, where he was to dine with a few of his friends. He called them his friends, but there was one man, Parker by name, for whom he had a strong dislike, he could not explain this dislike except for the fact that Parker had never had to work for a living. He stopped, on the way, to pick up his sepcial friend, Joe Randol. He liked Joe, because, like himself, he had risen from a poor boy. Neither of them knew how it came about, but their talk drifted into a discussion upon whether heredity or environment had the greatest infiuence in a man's life. Mr. Morgan mentioned the incident of his earlier days which had caused him so much pain. "That person," he said, "looked like some rich ne'er-do-well, T1 and I'll wager that unless his father has lost his money, he has never amounted to anything. A lot of fellows are that way simply because they have never been taught better." "My goodness," laughed his friends, "you surely are vehement about it. What do you say we put it up to the boys tonight to de- cide which of us is right ?" The argument waxed strong and hot that night, for the friends of Morgan were deep thinking men, and welcomed a chance for a debate. The controversy ended in a very strange manner. The man of Morgan's dislike had been an attentive listener to all that was said and, finally, after several vain attempts, he managed to rise and ask for silence. "Men," he said, "I see that you are real men and serious thinkers and, therefore, have decided to tell you something. I will feel better when I get it off my system, where it has been bother- ing me ever since I became acquainted with you. I wronged a man once, I don't know how badly, it may have meant only a few hours' inconvenience or it may have been a matter of life and death. The more I think about it the blacker I grow in my own eyes and have decided to let you judge whether it was really very bad or not." Whereupon he reached the tale which had been the cause of Morgan's stay in prison, saying that he was the real culprit, and, as he told his story, the bitterness and dislike in' Morgan's breast faded completely away, and he did a strange thing, under the cir- cumstances. "Men," he said, springing to his feet, "this clinches our argu- ment. Parker did what nine out of ten people would have done under the circumstances. It was the result of his environment." And he went home that night resolved that Parker should never know that he was the other actor in that little drama of years ago. RICHARD GAZLEY, '19, A BURGLAR IN NO MAN'S LAND. "No Man's Land was very quiet that evening." That is the way the newspaper reports read, but the No Man's Land of the title is not the one lying between two trenches. This one was the Y. W. C. A. There were girls, girls, girls everywhere, but not a man, not even a janitor. The night was very dark, and the rain was falling in veritable sheets. Every one had stayed in on account of this rain, and most of the young ladies had gathered in the large front room, where a bright wood fire was burningiin the open grate. Some were em- broidering, some crocheting, some knitting, one was reading 72 poetry aloud, and one was toasting marshmallows in the flames. It was indeed a peaceful scene. Suddenly on the stairway, which led up from the basement, we heard "the patter of little feet," and they were not ascending very slowly. One of the girls, who, knowing "cleanliness was next to godlinessf' had declined our kind invitation to join the happy circle in order to do her washing, burst into the room. Her eyes were almost popping out of her head, and she was so fright- ened she could hardly speak. Finally she gained enough breath to say that she had been working busily when, glancing up, she saw a man's face in the window. There were gasps, shrieks and screams, just as the news affected the different persons. All rushed for their rooms. No sooner had two of the girls stepped inside their room than they realized some one had been there. The dresser drawers were pulled out, clothes were scattered, and the window opening on the fire-escape was open. Down the stairs they came, pell-mell, crying at the tops of their voices. The oth- ers, variously armed, then rushed into the hall. One girl had a toy revolver which she had procured that day for a joke, another had grabbed her hair-brush, still another had a broom. Finally some- one conceived the bright idea of calling the police. The secretary, by this time quite brave, went to the phone. She tried again and again to get "Central," but in vain-the wires were cut. Some of the girls gained enough nerve to go out to the neighbors to get a man and the police. They could find no man, but finally got the police station. In a short time the patrol came clanging around the corner, warning everybody to look out, for they had come to find the burglar. They bravely went around the outside of the house with their search-lights, guns and clubs. Three men were left on the outside, the rest carefully searched the house, starting with the clothes-chute and ending with the broom-closet. They took the foot-prints which had been made on the floor by the soft mud. They inquired for a complete description of all the missing articles. By this time the girls had regained enough sense to find out what was missing. The poor burglar had been sadly misused. He had worked very hard for a mere trifie, for all he had gained was a small purse containing twenty-five cents and a ten-cent pin and ring. DOROTHY WILLARD, '20. T3 WHAT WE KNOW NOT, HURTS NOT. One day, as I in misery sat, In that dread dentist's chair, I saw a woman, short and fat, With her small daughter fair. The street was wet and slippery, too, The Wind was very strongg A gust did reach her hat so new And took that hat along. She slipped, she slid, she nearly fell, As she that hat did chase, She ran a block and all Went well, The hat still led the race. Then of her plight a man caught sight, And as he was so brave, He caught that bonnet in its plight, And her dignity did save. Now all this time-it short did seem- The dentist drilled and drilled, And when I thot 'twas time to scream, He said, "The tooth is filled." JOSEPHINE LOCKARD, '19. A TIMELY CONFESSION. One beautiful autumn morning Earl MacDonald and his friend Chal Ault had become so tired of doing ordinary things that they decided to build a bonfire and roast potatoes. They were on their usual playground, the largest lumber mill of their town. The mill was owned by Earl's father, and was managed by Mr. Ault. The boys worked busily gathering shavings and small pieces of wood. "Got any matches, Chai?" "Sure, I always have them-except when mother finds 'emf' After a good fire had been started, Chal inquired, "Where we gonna get the potatoes? Let's beat it home before the fire dies down." So both boys went to their homes, about half a block away, to get something to roast. In about ten minutes they returned with pockets bulging, to 74: 1'ind that the bonfire had had bad eiects, and that a small lumber shack was burning. The machinery of the mill had stopped, and all of the men were working to put out the fire. In the confusion, no one noticed the two terrorized boys. Earl saw the greater danger and said, "Chal, what if the large shed burns ?" "Let's beat it. Let's go over and play with Jerry," suggested Chal excitedly. Thinking that this was good advice, the boys ran off. By hard Work the sheriff and his helpers got the fire under control, and the sheriff went to the office to confer with Mr. Ault and Mr. MacDonald. "Which one of your men might be careless enough to drop a match near that building?" asked the sheriff. "I have absolute faith in all of my men, and I don't see how it could have been carelessness on anyone's part. They have all been with me for a long time and-but Wait a minute, Bill, what of the new man, Arnold ?" At the owner's last words Mr. Ault nodded his head and sug- gested calling the new employee. This was done, but on question- ing him they learned nothing. Arnold said he had been in the large shed all morning, alone. Meanwhile, Chal and Earl had decided not to tell. They spent a rather uneasy morning with Jerry and stayed until Mr. Arnold came home for dinner, hoping to hear something from him. The boys were playing hide-and-seek, and Chal was hiding near the open dining-room window. "Jack, do you suppose they will discharge you? Can't they see that you are innocent? And Jack, we do need moneyf' Tears were very close. Mr. Arnold had been working only a short time since his recovery from an accident. The children were in need of clothes to start in the coming school term. Chal decided it was time for him to "run in," and soon after left with Earl. That night the two boys overheard a serious conversation be- tween their fathers. The men were thinking of prosecuting Mr. Arnold, as they believed him guilty of even deliberately setting fire to the shed. Arnold's father had been a very bitter enemy of Mr. MacDonald's father, and these men thot that perhaps the hatred was transmitted to the son. After a restless night and many bad dreams, the boys were again together. "What'd they do to us if we told ?" demanded Earl. "Somethin' awful, prob'ly." "They're gonna lock Jerry's dad up, and he didn't do it. That's not fairf' went on Earl. "Aw, he'll get out." 75 ll "Maybe, but what if he don't? Why, Chal, what would Mrs. Arnold do? And she's so nice, too. And poor Jerry will have to quit school and work." Earl didn't realize that a ten-year-old boy wouldn't be allowed to work. "Poor Jerry! Aw, let's tell," replied Chal, gruffly. "All right l" Gathering their courage they went to the mill and opened the office door on an unpleasant scene. "You have one more chance, Jack. Can't you prove yourself innocent ?" said the sheriff. 'Tm afraid not. I can say no more than I have already told you." With a wave to his deputies the sheriff said rather sadly, "Take him along, boys." "Dad, wait a minute! We did it." Two excited boys told their story, were forgiven, and apologies made to Mr. Arnold. The boys slipped quietly away, and Chal said the last word about the fire. "Gee! They didn't do nothin' to us. I thot we'd be locked up, or somethin'." JOSEPHINE LOCKARD, '19. THE MANUFACTURE OF BENZOL AND OTHER COAL PRODUCTS. Many people have not heard or read about the coking of coal, and the extraction of by-products from the coal gas. For this reason, and because the "coke game" is a very interesting and im- portant one, I will try to relate some of the main points. I would like to say, first, that the handling of coal and coke and all other hard work is done by machinery and not by man's hands, as many people suppose. Different grades of coke are made from different kinds of soft coal. This coal is crushed into fine bits and dropped upon a fabric conveying belt, which takes it to a large bin on top of the coke ovens. The coal is then dropped into cars, which have four bins on them shaped similar to funnels. These cars run along the top of the ovens, and drop coal into them through four man-holes. The ovens that I am acquainted with are twenty-one inches wide at the receiving side or the side the coke comes out, and six- teen and a quarter inches wide on the pusher side. They are made wider at one side so that the coke may be pushed out easily. The ovens are about eight and a half feet deep and approximately thirty-iive feet long, they hold about twelve and a half tons of coal. Fifty-three ovens are placed with their long sides adjacent, to form what is called a battery. 76 When an oven has been charged or filled with coal, the coal is heated Cnot burnedb and distilled. After being heated for seven- teen hours the coal is pushed out of the oven, by a large pusher machine, in the form of coke. The pusher machine runs similar to the working of a ramrod in a gun. It has a long rammer or pusher that starts at the narrow end of the oven, and pushes the coke out the wide end into another electric car. This car conveys the coke under a sprayer where it is cooled by water. It is then taken to another large crib or bin, where it is dropped upon an- other conveying belt. This belt hauls the coke up to the loading bin, where it is dropped into cars to be shipped to the consumer. About seven-tenths of the coal cokes. The remaining thirty per cent forms a gas from which the products are taken. This gas amounts to several million feet daily, part of which is used at the ovens to heat the coal. When the gas leaves the ovens it goes to the primary coolers where the tar is extracted, and the gas is con- densed to a liquid. From the coolers the liquid goes to the am- monia stills and is acted upon by lime to form ammonia. From this ammonia, ammonium hydroxide or the household ammonia, is made by a solution of three per cent pure ammonia and water. After being acted upon by lime, part of the liquid goes to the re- heaters at a temperature of thirty degrees centigrade, and is heated to seventy-nine degrees centigrade. It is then saturated with sul- phuric acid to form ammonium sulphate, which is used for ex- plosives and fertilizer. The gas that remains after the ammonia is taken out goes to the Benzol Building thru a forty-eight inch pipe. This gas main enters two vertical tanks about twelve feet in diameter and fifty feet high. These are called coolers. As the gas rises to the top of the coolers, cold water drips down, cooling the gas. The gas then enters thru other vertical tanks somewhat larger than the coolers, called scrubbers. On these, a cheap grade of oil runs down from the top, as the gas rises, and takes the products out of the gas. The oil is then pumped to the light oil stills where part of it is distilled into an oil called light oil. The greater part of this oil has no products in it. This is pumped thru coolers, where it is cooled, and then it is pumped back to the scrubbers again. The light oil is put in a storage tank until one of the benzol stills is empty. The benzol stills are about nine feet in diameter and fifteen feet long. Each has a coil steam-pipe for heating. All heating is done by steam, as most of the raw products of coal are high ex- plosives. The light oil is pumped into the ninety per cent benzol stills. The oil is heated, and the vapor is condensed and sent to the Agi- tator Building. Here it is washed with caustic soda and sulphuric acid. It is then pumped back to the pure product stills, distilled and condensed again to produce the proper color, and make it a 77 pure product. From here it is pumped to the shipping building to be put in tank cars and shipped to all parts of the world for ex- plosives, dyes, dry cleaning, and motor fuel. It is probable that some day benzol will take the place of gasoline. After the light oil has been distilled there remains in the stills an oil called residue oil. This is taken to the napthaline building and placed in vats. The napthaline comes to the top of the oil in the form of crystals. It is taken out of the vats and dried in a cen- trifugal drier, ready to be made a pure product. Moth balls and medicine are made from napthaline. There are three hundred and twenty-eight by-products from coal, and many others made from these. Every person uses from ten to twenty of these each day. The soap we Wash with, the powder that we use on our noses, perfume, and the dyes in our clothes are some of the things made from these by-products. C. HARPSTER. i GIFT OF THE MAGI.

The town was proud of two things, yes, very proud of them. One was the new High School, and the other was the Business Men's Association, which was in reality a small Chamber of Com- merce. This Association met once a month and considered civic improvements. They had helped the Fire Department purchase an auto truck. They had helped beautify the park, and they were altogether a helpful body. The meetings were held in the town hall. The October meeting proved an affair of great importance to the town. The Police Department was due for a "shake-up," and it must be handled in a delicate manner. The reader will under- stand this better when he knows that the department consisted of one iiesh-and-blood policeman and six silent ones. The live one did not seem to be able to enforce two ordinances and was more of a luxury than an asset. A few of the gentlemen present at the meeting were in favor of retiring him, while others pleaded for another chance. Mr. Briggs tried to listen calmly to the argu- ments pro and con, but could make neither head nor tail of them, as could none of the others, so the discussion was laid over, and the meeting adjourned. ' The night was rather chilly, with a rising wind, which sent black clouds scurrying across the sky. The moon only once in a while peeped out, just to show it was there. Five of the gentlemen were neighbors, and so were going home together. The party consisted of Mr. Briggs, a lawyer, Mr. Thomas, the butcher, Mr. Smallwood, a hardware man, Mr. Willowby, a rotund and pompous gentleman, cashier of the local bank, and Mr. Black, the druggist. The town was divided by a small river running almost thru the center of it. On the one side was the business section or at least a large part of it, and the town hall, on the other was the residential section, with a few stores. On this side near the bridge, and at the foot of a hill, was situated Mr. Smallwood's hardware store. It could be plainly seen from the bridge even on a dark night. The five gentlemen had just left the bridge when Mr. Briggs noticed a twinkling light moving about in the store. "Somebody working in the store tonight, Smallwood?" he asked. "No, not that I know of," replied that gentleman. "Why ?" "Oh, I just noticed a light there, that's all." "That's queer, guess I'll take a look and see what's doing." The other four followed Smallwood over to the store and waited while he peered in at the window. Fortunately a dark cloud ob- scured him from observation from within. What he saw startled - A 79 ',, him. Silently he beckoned to the others, who came forward at once. "Look," he whispered, pointing to the interior. Kneeling at a safe was a man working very swiftly to open it. The five men gazed at each other. "Where the deuce is that policeman?" asked Mr. Thomas, looking around in all directions. "Huh! He's asleep somewhere," returned Mr. Black. "What'll we do?" queried Smallwood. "lf we go in he may be armed, and then someone will get hurt." "I got it! We'll surround the place and nab him when he comes out," said Mr. Briggs. "Fine! Just the thing! Sure!" answered the rest. This plan was put into action at once, Mr. Thomas watching the front door, Mr. Briggs the back, and the other three the win- dows on the east side, the west being attached to an adjoining building. The positions had hardly been taken before a window rose slowly, very slowly over Mr. Willowby's head. That gentle- man, startled, shrank against the wall, evidently trying to give the impression that he was absent. He must have succeeded, for a form slowly lowered itself out of the window. Mr. Willowby, grasping the legs of the intruder, pulled. That person lost his grip on the window sill and himself, and fell flat on Mr. Willowby with a muttered oath. Mr. Willowby only grunted. This commo- tion brot the other men around to the scene, but the stranger was ready for them, and when Willowby gazed up he looked into a cold steel barrel and a glittering eye. Whatever he may have wanted to say was cut off with a gurgle. "Youse guys come any closer, and it's good-bye to your pal here," said the stranger, looking at the rest who stood in varying attitudes, but none of which were threatening. "Smallwood, for heaven's sake call off this er-er-gentleman. I'll gladly make up your loss, only get this gun away from my nose," cried the prostrate Willowby, his face white and strained, and his teeth chattering. The other four grouped themselves together for consultation. Hardly had they begun when a shout from behind caused them to look around. Down the street dashed the stranger, while Willow- by, seated on the ground, hurled maledictions at the astonished men for allowing him to escape after he had caught him, urging them to give chase. Collecting their wits and Mr. Willowby, they started off. . , Now while the pursuit of the stranger is going on, I ask you, reader, to kindly follow me to the "Smoke House" on Main Street. This place is the meeting-place for politicians and others who know all about running the government and other things. It is a large room sandwiched in between a barber shop and a real estate office. S0 The double doors are set in, and a little porch j utting out is the result. Here, in a chair, sits the police force. Reader, Policeman O'Toole at your service. You see he is rather a large man, slightly inclined to be fat, a broad face with a bristling gray mustache. His nose is rather prominent, you say? Yes, now that you speak of it I see it is. But just look at those flashing eyes. Rather stern, are they not, looking out from under those eyebrows, but, then, don't be afraid, he really isn't as savage as he looks at times, and especially not at night. Now that you have met this oflicer of the law, reader, just step aside and watch him start on his beat. Policeman O'Toole slowly lifted himself out of the chair, looked at the sky, which was still dark with clouds, and stepped oi, not hurriedly, but with the step of a man who has all night to get there, so why hurry? This is one characteristic of Mr. O'Toole, he never hurries. He got as far as the corner of Main and Third, and then he stopped, regarding his brother member of the force, the Silent Policeman. He was evidently trying to decide whether to go on or turn, but not being able to decide, he stepped back into the shadow of a building and stopped. Suddenly a sound caught his ear. It sounded like shouting and running men coming toward him. He looked up, but saw nothing. Then deciding to investi- gate, he stepped forward, and as he did so, a running object pro- pelled itself into his arms, Startled, he clutched at the object to retain his balance, and looked square into the face of the stranger. The face was not one which demands trust. It was a sullen face, with a week's beard. The eyes were shifty and yet piercing. The breath that fanned the policeman's face betrayed an intimacy with that which makes Prohibition necessary. Unconsciously O'Toole's grip tightened, and the stranger, recovering his breath, broke away with one arm, but before he could altogether release himself tive panting, disheveled men came up. "Ho-o-ld-him-Officer!" panted the foremost, who happened to be Smallwood. "Sure, and I have 'im," replied that individual, tightening his grip still more. Mr. Smallwood then gave an account of the at- tempted robbery and the chase. "Well, now, that's queer. I knew something was wrong when I saw this man a-running toward me, and I knew it was up to me, as an officer of the law, to find out what the trouble was. ,You can always count on O'Toole to.do his duty in protecting the citizens of this town." "Move on, now," this to the prisoner, who, realizing the use- lessness of trying to escape, was sullenly glaring around. The five men followed. When he was safely lodged in jail and searched, money to the amount of 31,000 was found on him. This was re- turned at once to Mr. Smallwood. For the next few days Police- man O'Toole never lost a chance to tell the story of "his" capture S1 l , of a "desprit criminal," who, it turned out, was wanted in another city for the same thing. The shake-up in the police department has not materialized as yet, due to the inliuence of Mr. Smallwood, who declares he has some sense anyway, and so why put him off the force? WILLIAM HUMPHREY, '19. TWO OF A KIND. It was Saturday, Aug. 16, 1918, that Ruth Mackey enter- tained the Krazy Knitting Klub. This was to be the last meeting of this little organization, formed by several of the girls, to do knitting for the soldiers. On this memorable day the club was to finish up the last of its work to be turned in to the Red Cross, and was to suspend its meetings because most of the girls were return- ing to their college Work. Ruth, the hostess, a very pretty but rather frivolous girl, was not to return to Michigan State Univer- sity, where she had attended for two years because her father had gone to France as a doctor, and her mother would be left alone. After knitting industriously for some time Ruth spoke up: "Oh, girls! I know what we can do. You have heard how girls have placed their names in sweaters, haven't you? Well, why not do that and see what happens ?" There was a murmur of approval among the girls. Suddenly Lucille, Ruth's churn, spoke up: "I know something that would be still better. Let Ruth place an unknown name and a General Delivery address in the sweater -say, Doris Green, Elyria, Ohio, General Delivery." "Doris Green it shall be," spoke up Ruth, dancing around the room. "Have any of you girls got a pencil ?" "Here is one," answered Lucille. So Ruth placed the name, Doris Green, and the address, Elyria, Ohio, General Delivery, in the sweater, and, taking this down to the Red Cross rooms next day, watched them while they packed it into a large box marked "Great Lakes Naval Training Station." A few weeks after that eventful Saturday the boys of the 15th Regiment were lined up before the Y. M. C. A. building to receive their new sweaters. Sergeant Robert D. Wood had just stepped to the door to receive his. As his large hand grasped the sweater he heard a piece of paper on the inside crumple under the pressure of his hand. Now Sergeant Wood was not a bashful boy, but al- most instinctively he turned to see if any one but he had heard the sound of the paper. Apparently no one had. At any rate no one seemed interested. On his way to his room he voiced many thanks to the gods of Virgil's Eneid that no one else had heard, for it probably was an address some silly girl had placed in the sweater, and of which the boys would have teased him forever more had S2 they found it. On arriving at his room he found his friend, Pri- vate Howard Joseph, who instantly noticed the annoyed look on R0bert's face. "I say! What's the matter, old chap?" asked Howard. By this time Robert had managed to get the name and address out of the sweater. "Matter enough! I do wish those silly girls would leave their names out of sweaters. Humph! Doris Green, Elyria, Ohio, Gen- eral Delivery! I'll just bet she's as green as her name," replied Bob in a slightly angry tone. "Now don't get huffed, Bob.. I'll tell you how you can queer her for good and all. Write her an extremely illiterate letter and sign my name and address to it, and we will await results. See ?" Bob thought a moment and then replied: "Say, that's a good plan. Quite a joke. Get me some paper. Quick!" Ruth, several weeks having passed, had given up all hopes of hearing from the soldier who had received the sweater containing her slip of paper. She and Lucille, while passing the Post Office, decided to try for a last time, so entered the building. Ruth walked up to the window, and in her prettiest manner asked the clerk if there was any mail for Doris Green. The girl at the win- dow turned, fingered thru the G's, turned again, and passed the strangest looking envelope with the strangest looking scratching on the outside that any one had ever seen. Ruth, amazed at the sight, grasped the envelope, and made a wild dash for the door, followed by Lucille. When they had reached the sidewalk, Ruth tore open the envelope. The first thing that accosted her atten- tion was the salutation-"Dere Miss Green", then-"How are you I am fine.-i recieved your sweter and was glad to get it." The letter proceeded in this manner thruout its length, which proved to be a page and a half. When Ruth had finished reading it, she, with a very disgusted look on her face, passed it to her companion. Lucille read it, and without a word passed it back. In the meantime Ruth had been thinking seriously: "There now. I knew something like that would happen. No decent fellow could have received that address. But I shall answer that letter anyhow. Just think, Lucille, maybe he doesn't receive much mail and is lonesome," said Ruth. "Well," replied Lucille, "you can answer it if you want to, but I wouldn't. What if he would get a furlough and come to see you ?" "I don't care. I am going to write to him," said Ruth. "And I know what I am going to do. I am going to write just such a letter to him as he wrote to me, so as not to make him feel out of place." 83 This began the acquaintance thru correspondence between Ruth Mackey and Sergeant Robert D. Wood. On November 11th, 1918, the war ended, and on December 4th, 1918, Sergeant Robert D. Wood sent a letter to Doris Green that he had decided to make Elyria the first stop on his way home to Cleveland. Ruth Mackey was in a flutter. What should she do? How could she ever explain to her parents? She would just have to meet this Pvt. Howard Joseph at the train and waylay him. Thus she decided and awaited for the day to arrive. At last the day arrived, bringing gloom with it. The skies were dark, and it was drizzling a fine misty rain. Ruth arrived at the station, just as the train pulled in. She felt her knees shake and wondered if any one else could see them. The train stopped. Only a few passengers alighted, and only one sailor. He had his back to Ruth. Impulsively she walked up to him and tapped him on the shoulder, asking: "Are you Pvt. Howard Joseph ?" At this the soldier turned. Both stood gazing at each other dumbfounded. Then Bob spoke up: "Why, Ruth Mackey! You here ?-and to meet Pvt. Howard Joseph? Surely you don't know Doris Green ?" "Doris Green, indeed! There is no such person. I am the only Doris Green." "Now I see thru all of it," replied Bob. "So you are Doris Green ?" "Yes, But come-let us go home where we can talk over everything, past and present," said Ruth. In this manner Sergeant Robert D. Wood and Ruth Mackey, once college chums, met after a separation of nearly a year, and Ruth now wears the ring she rejected while in college because Bob would not go out for football. She had come to realize football wasn't everything. LOUISE JOHNSTON. 84 T Ai 47 Q' ' CL A - ' tml 5 A I in ' 4' gm 'Finn ! '3 V VYVYVV kfi in a-'I .-ii-IQE! X ' I M ,SQ I I ' 5 l'- ELYRIAN STAFF.

This is the last issue of our school paper put out by the pres- ent staff, and We feel justly proud of it. We have tried in this number as Well as in the others to maintain the high standard set by former years and, if possible, to over-reach it. We believe that our paper has made a contribution to the school, and We 'Wish to thank the students and faculty members who have supported us so Well this year. The support of the school makes a paper, and vvefcertainly feel that we have had it this year. We also Wish to express to the members of next year's staff our best wishes and highest hopes for their success. The staff loses four of its members by graduation this year. They are: Eva L. Mackey, Editor-in-Chiefg Mildred Corfman, Literary, Walter Hines, Alumni, Leo Martin, Business Manager. A MOTTO. One high school has adopted for the motto of the Whole school: "Nothing but the best." What a fine motto for any school to aim for! It could be carried into the athletics, organizations, and other activities of the school as Well as into the class room. If each one gave his best in all lines, what a bigger, better, and more success- ful school it would be! Each graduating class of E. H. S. has a motto, but it is usually chosen at the end of the year, and it is not something for the class to uphold and aim for during the year. Wouldn't it be line if E. H. S. would adopt a motto for the whole school? It would be something for everyone to be proud of and to try to reach. We could carry our motto with us after We left school and always be proud of our Alma Mater for its high aims. The students of Elyria High School have decided to choose a pin to be used for each graduating class with different numerals. Unity is what makes a live school with lots of spirit, and this is one of the many steps that can be taken to unify our school. A gradu- ate of our school Wearing one of these pins will be recognized anywhere by another graduate of the school. The interest in our H. S. will be maintained, and it Will mean much to us. THOSE EXAMS. Once more the year is drawing to a close, and those dreaded exams are on their Way. We all have a queer cold feeling When We think of them, but it can't be helped. There have been many arguments advanced for and against them, but still they remain. 87 Most everybody is keyed up to such a pitch on exam day that all sense and knowledge leaves and merely a blank is left. We haven't been able to abolish them, so we will have to endure them, hoping better things for those who follow us. OUR SCHOOL YEAR. The school year of 1919 is nearing its end, and as we look back over it we can see that it has been significant in many ways. Altho we were hindered by the "flu," we have done our best to make the year a memorable one. The football team achieved a notable success, and tho our basketball season was not gilded with victories, we are proud of our team. The Friendship Club, French League, and other organizations have made our social life pleasant. So, in spite of its "ups and downs," we have enjoyed the year to its fullest extent. THINGS WE HAVE NOT SEEN. Rumors of a Glee Club and an Orchestra have been spread thru the school, and have been confirmed by various notices on the board, but they are not often heard. We have had the orchestra in chapel only a few times, and the Glee Club even fewer times. The school enjoys the work of these two organizations and would like to see more of them. ADVICE. When you get to be a senior you feel old enough to look back over your four years and give a little advice to those who are following in your footsteps. So this might be called advice of a learned and aged senior to under-classmates. C11 Don't think school is the worst place on earth g when you are leaving you will think it is pretty good.

The English Club has met regularly every two weeks during the ten o'c1ock period. This club is composed of all those who have a grade of ninety and who are not failing in any other subject. There are now 101 members, from whom the following offi- cers were elected: Eva Mackey, Presidentg Gladys McCullough, Vice-Presidentg Muriel Reisinger, Secretary. The programs have consisted for the most part of short one- act plays, read by diferent members of the club. They have proved interesting and entertaining. A trial scene, "The State vs. the Four Verb Brothers," was presented to the student body in Chapel by the Club. This was such a success that the cast was requested to present it again in the evening at the meeting of the Parent Teachers' Association. 2. The work of the Friendship Club for the year 1918-19 has been perhaps more successfully carried thru than in any other year. The president for this year's success was Gladys Williams who, with the aid of the other officers and committee members forming the cabinet, has carried out everything she planned to do. A party for the Hi-Y boys, a Mother and Daughter party, and a recognition service for the new members have been held at frequent intervals. A play, "Does It Pay to Advertise?" was given in Chapel one morning by several of the Friendship girls. The year closes with a total membership of one hundred eighty, which shows that the enthusiasm has run high, and inter- est has increased since the club was first organized in 1915. 92 3. At the beginning of school in September, the Girls' Glee Club was again organized under the leadership of Miss Todd. The fol- lowing ofiicers were elected: Mary Rust, President, Helene Has- erodt, Secretary, Nellie Brown, Treasurer. Of the present twenty-seven members, thirteen have been taken in this school year. The Glee Club has entertained us several times in Chapel, but perhaps the best program was the Christmas music furnished by them. 4. The Hi-Y, or Boys' Club, has held its meetings regularly every two weeks at the Y. M. C. A. During the past year the club has been divided, there now being a separate organization for the Freshmen-Sophomores and one for the J unior-Seniors. The Fresh- man-Sophomore Club was under the supervision of Mr. Crehore, and the Junior-Senior organization was under the leadership of the Reverend John Grant. Altho at several of the meetings the attendance has not been large, yet much spirit and enthusiasm have been shown at the gatherings and the good fellowship and teachings of the Hi-Y en- joyed by the members. 5. The Orchestra cannot be praised too highly for the excellent music they have furnished us this year. Altho their appearances in Chapel have been few, the quality of the music was sufficient recompense for the quantity. All who were present at the Pageant were certainly not disappointed be- cause of poor music. The concert was a great musical success which was due not only to the members of the orchestra, but also to the untiring ef- forts of Professor Gehrkins from Oberlin, who is now conductor of the orchestra. 6. The Spanish Club, our new organization, consists of ten mem- bers of the advanced Spanish Class under the direction of Miss Sears. The club holds its meetings once each month during the 10:30 period. The meetings are conducted entirely in Spanish, and are not only helpful to the Spanish students, but very amus- ing. The play, "La Broma," given in Chapel one morning, was a huge success. 93 Tek ive F m D Q I W .1 CZ z 94 L ...M , - l.+ 4 E-UYIO JIHSUXHIHJ Y ,J U13 IC E CLUB GL VELLSEIHUHO SPAN ISH FLUTE HI-Y CLUB US 'K i ..

The first class to graduate from the Elyria High School Was in 1861, and consisted of four members-Mrs. Frances Sanford Nelson, Mrs. Thankful Boynton Woodruff, Louise Terrell, and Cyrus Duraud. There has been a class graduated every year since that time up to the present, with the exception of the year of 1862. During that time the classes have increased year by year, until today they number about 100. The Alumni Association, as near as can be recalled, some of the old records having been lost, Was formed in 1880, with Mrs. Nettie G. Johnston of the class of 1872 as president. The present officers of the Alumni Association are as follows: Ralph Murbach .................................. President Dan Symons .... -- .... First Vice-President Helen Smith .......... --- Second Vice-President Mrs. Geo. Worthington --- ............. Secretary Frank Eckler ......,.. --- ........... Treasurer Miss Eva Reefy --- ....................... Historian Mrs. Cloyd Gull --- ...... Chairman Executive Committee J. B. Thomas ................. Chairman Permanent Committee Frank Todd, '14, one of the star Elyria High Track men and one who also broke several records while at Ohio State, enlisted with Base Hospital Unit No. 38, and has been accorded a very singular honor. He has been chosen to represent his unit in the big track meet at Paris, May 15. He is in training now at one of the big training camps near the Bay of Biscay. If he Wins out in this track meet, he will have the opportunity of competing in the big international track meet in Sweden. Bravo, Frank! Our best Wishes go With you. Kathrine andlMillicent Spencer, '13, and Mildred Braun, '09, are all working in different branches of the Cleveland Public Library. 99 William Gray, '11, who attended the University of Pittsburg after graduating, is now connected with the eastern branch of the Elyria Enameled Products Company. Lieut. Don Sawyer, '15, who trained at Ft. Benjamin Harri- son, later bbeing stationed at Camp Sherman, is still overseas doing Numbered among the faculty of the High School this year are Misses Sears, Lewis, Edwards, Chamberlain, Parmalee, Isabel and Eleanor Hurst, Bills, Schneurer, and Mr. Welton, all members of the Elyria Alumni Association. Arthur Agate of the class of 1909, who made a record for himself both in High School and Western Reserve Athletics, and who has been serving in the U. S. Dental Corps, has returned to Elyria and reopened his oiiice here. William Penfound was elected Secretary of Oberlin College Y. M. C. A. Miss Florence Terry is another Elyria High graduate who is doing her bit under the War Work Council of the Y. W. C. A. in Charlotte, N. C. 1 Allen Coven, president of the class of 1916, trained at Great Lakes and from there went to the Harvard Radio School, later going to the Radio Telephone School at New London, Conn. We are surely honored in being able to number among our Alumni Wm. Graves Sharp, who, as U. S. Ambassador to France during this recent terrible conflict, has rendered the U. S. an invaluable service. Assisting in different lines of war work were his daughter, Miss Margaret, class of 1913, and George, class of 1914. Raymond Harry Norweb, class of 1912, as Mr. Sharp's pri- vate secretary, has been in the "thick of things." Harlie Stevick, president of the class of 1912, who was one of the Y. M. C. A. secretaries at Camp Sherman, is now doing Y. M. work in Pa. Miss Olive Collier, '14, is training at Lakeside Hospital, Cleve- land. A recent marriage of interest was that of Miss Hazel Waldorf, '10, to Mr. F. R. Crawford of Grafton. Miss Edith Shearer, '07, is one of the secretaries of the Cen- tral Y. W. C. A., Duluth, Minn. Miss Shearer nearly lost her life in the great forest fire which swept that section of the country last fall. Among the Elyria Alumni who have given their lives for the "cause of liberty," are Roll Hinkson, '11, who was drowned with the sinking of the Ticonderoga, Adam Miller, '06, who was killed 100 in action last fall, Kline Mayberry, '13, who died at Camp Sher- man, and Edward Hard, '12, who died in Washington, D. C. Prominent among the nursing staff overseas were two Elyria High graduates-Miss Mary Tasman, who went over with the Lynn, Mass., Unit, and Miss Helen Briggs, of Lakeside Hospital, Cleveland. Miss Briggs was awarded the French War Cross for heroic services rendered the wounded where the hospital in which she was stationed was shelled by the enemy. Louise Allen, '11, graduate of Lake Erie College, is now teach- ing in the Painesville High School. Dorothy Brush, '14, who graduated last June from Oberlin College, is now one of the physical instructors at the Y. W. C. A., Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Walter Kelsey and Harold Birch, both of the 1913 class, have been awarded the French War Cross for valor. Both young men were transferred from the American to the French Ambulance Corps soon after their arrival in France two years ago. Dr. John Rankin, '08, who has been overseas for months with the medical unit of The Johns-Hopkins University, Baltimore, has just recently returned home. Brenton Smith, President of the class of 1911, who, during the war period, was stationed at McCook's Aviation Field, Day- ton, is now with the Glenn H. Martin Aeroplane Company, East Cleveland. Eric Tasman, '08, better known as "Pie," former Elyria High and Kenyon College all-around athlete, is now assistant pastor of a large Episcopalian church at Toledo. EDVVIN MORG.AN ,18 is still overseas with the "Devil Dogs." 101 Fi. YL? L1 Mayen, Germany. April 30, 1919. Dear Miss Gebert: I have not answered your last letter up to this time, for lack of material to write about, but at last I have some news that might interest you. I have just returned from a three days' leave to the 2nd, Divi- sion to visit the Elyria boys in the Marines. I had a fine time and had very good luck in finding the boys. Everyone of them is "sitting on the world" as we soldiers say over here. I went first to see Don Barber stationed at Waldbreitback, up the Wied River. I dropped in upon him in the oiTicer's kitchen, Sunday morning. We had been writing to each other but he was surprised to see me, as he did not know that I had gotten my pass. That boy is sure looking fine and has a good job. He is with a good bunch of fellows and has a nice bed in' a hotel in the town. I had a fine dinner with him and we were going for a horse-back ride in the afternoon but could not get any saddles as they were all in use. It also started to storm,-a half snow-storm-so we stayed in his room looking at snap-shots of the Elyria bunch and some wellknown young ladies in E. H. S.-names not to be men- tioned-Comprenez? Censored l Also we read old Elyrians and Evening Telegrams. That reminds me of something-I have had no Elyrians, and maybe you would be so kind as to send me some back numbers. We had a good laugh on R. P. V. for I had a picture of him taken at the Lorain game-it was a rear View of him and Mr. Welton. Mr. Vaughn has not sufered from lack of avoirdupois since we boys left E. H. S. The censor UD prohibits me from telling who sent that picture. I staid in Waldbreitback that night, as Don found a good billet for me. I slept till 9 A. M.-a treat for me who, of necessity, gets up "each and every morning" at 6:10 A. M.-Sunday, no exception. I then started out to locate Hugh and Tom Greer in another town in the beautiful Wied valley. Tom was not to be found as he was on a fourteen-day furlough to Bordeaux, France, to see Percy Munns and Chas. Persons in a hospital there. I was told that Hugh was only the second town up the hill in a commissary. So I started to climb up and up and finally reached village No. 1 called Wolfneck. I stopped there for a rest and discovered that I was with Wm. Anslem's old company. As you know, Bill is back in the States trying to recover from a wound received the last night of the fight when crossing the Meusc River. I saw several of Bill's comrades-some who were with him 102 on the Parisian M. P. force-and the lad who bound up his wound, that last night. They were sure glad to hear that he was back home and they had not forgotten him. They wanted me to stay to dinner, but I told them I had to hasten on to see Hugh. After another half hour of climbing in a beating April moun- tain-snowstorm, I reached Kursheid on the top of the hill. I soon found Corp. Hugh and his commissary. He certainly was sur- prised to see me and we had a fine talk about Elyria and everyone in it, or out of it, in the Service. I ate dinner in his mess-hall and then started down the hill. My "chow-call" has just blown so must go to the "galley" as the Marines call a kitchen. Will finish after "chow". -Later- I have been delayed a little longer than expected for after "chow" I received two letters and a post card. The card from Don Barber written before my visit to him and a letter from a little machine-gunner of the Fourth Division, who is here in the hospital. He is convalescing from diphtheria and soon goes back to his outfit. While I was reading his letter he dropped in to see me as he is out of quarantine now. He hails from Rhode Island. Now back to my trip. I forgot to tell you about Hugh Greer's wound and his seeing Mr. Sharp in a Paris Hospital, 'tho' he did not talk with him. But Hugh can tell you all about that better than I. In the next town I found "Blinky" Morgan and he is the same "Blinky" as ever. He is in Regimental Headquarters and does switchboard work now. After having supper with him I caught a German auto bus and rode on the top of it back to Waldbreitback. Next morning I started out early and went back to Blinkyys burg, Altwied, and the two of us climbed up the hill to the Schloss Mon-Repos where the Colonel of the 5th lives with his Staff. Some climb, but it was worth it. For there we found Art Sherman in a swell room in the servant's quarters of the Castle. I stayed with them till two in the afternoon and started to Neuwied,-having given up hopes of seeing Art Lockard, but in Neuwied I discovered there was a 5:13 train to Rhinewohl where Art is stationed. I found him in his mess hall and sat down and had supper with him. He has a billet in a theater which had been set up with German military beds. I managed to get my Train Hdqrs. on the telephone and had my pass extended for it had run out. I stayed with Arthur that night and left this morning, crossing the Rhine on a ferry-boat and then got a ride in a "Flivver" to Mayen. I certainly enjoyed my trip and tho I have not related my ex- 103 4,1 7 .. . periences as I might if I were writing a theme, I hope you will enjoy hearing about the boys and how they are living. Now just a word about "Yours truly". I am stationed in a medium sized walled town as ancient as Rome by the looks of part of it. I have a very good billet with a poor German family with seven children. I have lived here now since the 18th of December and am treated fine by these "SquareheadS". We have just finished our big new kitchen and two mess-halls and are feeling fine now. The children have just told me that a French Aeroplane has just landed in a field near here so must go and take a look at it tho' they are common things here. I remain as ever, your old pupil, ARTHUR BARNARD. P. S. One word about the Aeroplane. It was a French scout- ing plane, painted dull gray with the tri-color on its rudder and the union insignia on the wings. It was dismantled and on a trailer behind a Liberty truck. I saw nothing of the aviators. A. B. Motor Supply Train 413, Motor Truck Co., 434, A. P. O. 775 A. E. F.

I guess we had some football and basketball teams this year, didn't we? It has been quite a while since Elyria hung Lorain's scalp at her belt, which we did this year in football. We would have had her basketball wig also, only they got more points than we did in the fatal game. We certainly have to take our hats off to the members of both teams for the way in which they played and the spirit which most of them showed. But these were not the only persons figuring in on our suc- cess. Who else was greatly responsible for this besides Coach Vaughn? This was his first year at E. H. S., and he, without any football material to brag of, whipped a team into line that pulver- ized Lorain. The trick plays that he showed the team completely baf'Hed the chaps from Lorain, and in fact every team that we played barring Sandusky. And in basketball, he was also a bright light. Altho our basketball team was not quite as successful as our football team, some real basketball was displayed. We have no apologies to offer for its showing against Lorain, as the fellows on the team did their best, but Lorain's best was just a shade bet- ter than our best. We should and will have a real basketball five next year, as the coach started something new in our school to get a line on the best players. He originated the inter-class games which developed to a very great extent, next year's team. The coach has a good idea right now who will be next year's varsity, due to these inter- class games. . Alf Brouse was elected captain for next year's football team and "Boog" Reynolds as captain of the basketball team. We haven't heard any speeches from them as yet, but we know what they would say if they were to make orations. We know we have two men here that will ably fill the places which were vacated by Hancock and Baker, whom we don't want to forget. Taking things as a whole, we have had a pretty good year as far as athletics go, and we are sure that next year will be just as fruitful. Nine 'rah's for E. H. S.l 105 lm - J M EA T OOTBALL .

You take a swim, You say you've swumg Your nails you trim, But they're not trump And milk you skim, Is never skum. When Words you speak, Those words are spokeng But a nose you tweak, Is never twokeng Nor can you seek And say you've soken. A top you spin, The top is spung A hare you skin, Yet 'tis not skun. Nor can a grin Be ever grun. If we forget, Then We've forgotten 3 But if We bet We haven't botteng No house We let Is ever lotteng What We upset Is not upsotteng Now don't these prove Our language rotten? -Boston Tmnscripf 1 16 A WIND-UP FOR ELECTRICITY. Mr. Koppes: "Actor, how do Fords get their electricity?" Actor Patton: "They wind up." PERFECT CAMOUFLAGE. A negro doughboy was clad in white pajamas one night when the camp was surprised by German bombers. Everybody headed for his own dugout, and Sam had some distance to travel. - "What did you do ?" he was asked the next morning. "Easy," he replied. "De good Lawd has gimme de bes' cam- myfladge in de world. I dropt dem pajamies right whar I stood an' made de res' o' de trip in my birfday clo'es."-New York Times. il.- GOT AN "H. M." At the conclusion of the school term prizes were distributed. When one of the pupils returned home his mother chanced to be entertaining callers. "Well, Charlie," asked one of these, "did you win a prize?" "Not exactly," said Charlie, "but I got a horrible mention." MAKING A SHORT STORY LONG. Miss McElroy fafter a lesson on how to increase the vocabu- laryh : "Now, class, please take down the following sentence-'A wink is as good as a nod to a blind horse?--Write this in your own words." QA few minutes laterb : "Jack Lucas, will you please read what you have written ?"

Mr. Koppes flosing his patiencelz "Is this a Case for this period only or for all the time?" 117 HOME FROM THE BALL. Stude: "See this chalk on my shoulder?" Roommate: "Yeh." Stude: "Well, that ain't chalk." NO PLACE TO WRITE. Ruth Roberts fin Civics Class in 25L about to take a tesll 1 "How can I take this test without a place to write ?" Miss Ebert: "Haven't you got an arm?" WEBSTER-A LA COCKNEY. ' Two English costermongers were pushing their carts along when one of them picked up a torn sheet of newspaper. As he stopped and scanned the page the other fellow called out im- patiently: "Aw, come on. Wot ye tryin' to do? Ye cawn't read the pyper-" "I can so read the paper! If ye don't believe I'll show ye." And he read oi a few simple words. The skeptic pointed to a word and demanded: "Now, wot's that word-can ye tell me ?" "An' I can so," replied the reader, "that's category." "Category, is it '?" sniffed the other, Han' 'ow do ye tell wot such a long word may mean ?" His friend puffed with importance. "Well, I'll tell ye. Ye takes hit hapart, an' ye finds the meanin' of heach part an' then ye puts hit together hagainf' With a dirty index finger he pointed out the syllables of the word. "Now, cat. Ye knows wot a cat his ?" The open-mouthefl listener nodded. "Well, then, next comes 'e. Now that won't be no she cat, hit's a 'e cat-see ?" Another nod was the reply. . "Well, next comes g-o-r-y. That spells gory g that means bloody. So there ye 'ave hit-hit's a bloody tom cat, ye fool." NOT FAR WRONG. James was halting and stammering his way thru a Latin translation, and the teacher was deftly trying to assist his lag- gard memory. 'fSinister" was the word she wanted. "Come, come, James," she urged. "You know the Latin for 'left' surely?" James scratched his head for a moment, then looked up tri- umphantly. "Spinster," he offered. 118 LOGICAL REASONING. J. J. Vaughn fduring examination of written answers to cer- tain questions by Bookkeeping I Classj: "Great minds in the same row of seats run in the same channel." NOT EXACTLY A KING. Daniel Jones Cafter Mrs. Raufus had been telling about the picture, "Cannibals of the South Sea," in the history classlz "Guess I'll go down. Maybe they'll make me king." Williard Stoney: "Ah, g'wan, they'd make you into soup." V A LESSON IN HISTORY. s "Who was this 'ere Nero, Bill?" asked a coster of his friend, as they gazed into the picture shop. "Wasn't 'e a chap that was always cold ?" 'Q I "No, that was Zero," was the answer. "Another bloke alto- getherf' SOMEBODY HAS BIG FEET? Miss Tod fwhen Faculty Picture was being takenjz "Why don't they take and cut off our feet in the picture? Who wants to see our feet?" l- THE TIME QUESTION. We talk of war, we talk of peace, The Bolsheviki tribes increase, The whiskey traflic soon will cease, The League of Nations wants a lease, But the text I chose for this wee rhyme, Is-Why are they always changing the time? We used to rise with the roosterfs crow, But that seemed for some a little too slow, So an hour ahead the clocks had to go, And we rose beneath the moon's slight glow. But the thing that causes me to moan, Is the fact that they can't let the clocks alone. We could stand one change, at least we'd try, But they wouldn't let that slip by, So the clocks moved ahead, we can't guess why, I'll tell you now, I can't tell a lie, That if they don't stop pretty soon, I'll leave this earth and go to the moon.
